Grand Forks, B. C„ Friday. July 28, 1911.
$1.00 Per Year in Advance.
LOSS, $122,
City Is Once More Visited
by a Disastrous Conflagration
Tuesday morning, at 1:10 o'clock,
tire broke out iu tbe rear of tbe W.
IC. C. Manly's hard wane store, aod
two houra later, when it had been
got under control, one-half block of
business houses and $123.00(1 worth
of property had been reduced to
ashes.
From the most authentic accounts
obtainable, the Gre started in the
rear of W. K. C, Muuiy's hardware Btore. Its origin, however,
will probably never be known. When
the tire department arrived on the
scene the (lames were already beyond control. Ten atreams of water
were soon got on the Hames, and
owing tbe efficient work of Chief
Savage and the otber members of
the department the tire was practically confined to half a block of
buildings.
From the slatting point the fire
spread two directions—towards
V. Burns' market and tip Bridge
street as far Second street, the Hames
reaching tbe latter point in an incredibly short time owing to the inflammable nature of the buildings.
Tbe heat from the burning structures on tbe south aide of tbo street
was intense, and the fireman, in
order to save the blocks ou the opposite side, were compelled to wrap
wat blankets (.round themselves.
By thia meant tba Hames were
checked, but all the plate glass windows were destroyed and some of
tbe fronts of the business houses
were badly scorced. Clark Bros.'a
store, on First street, alto caught on
fire several times, but the flames
were extinguished before any serious damage was dons.
Tbe following buildings, together
with nearly all their fumishingiand
stocks of merchandise, were entirely
destroyed: P. Burns <fc Co.'s buildings, occupied by P. Burnt &. C'o.'a
meat market, W. 0. Chalmers' cigar
and confectionery store, J. B. Tuttle' s boot and she repair shop, 8.
Kirk's jewely repair shop; the Manly block, occupied by W. K. C.
Manly's hardware store, and the
Boundary Trust & Investment company; the Birkbeck block, occupied
by P.. F. Petrie's stationery store; U.
W. Averill's buildiuge, occupied by
Mclntyre's hardware store, A. S,
McKim's grocery store, Miss Huffman's millinery store, the C.P.R.
telegraph utlice, the Maun Drug
company, aud F.J. Miller's undertaking parlors.

The damagelsustained by [the B.
C, Telephone company was caused
by the burning of poles and cutting
uf cables and wires, while loss to the
banks and Jell Davis'store was occasioned by tbe breakage of plate
glass. A. D. Morrison's loss was
about evenly divided between damage to the building by the Hames
and damage to the stuck by water.
The Yale hotel lost a cash rigister,
plate glass, and a large quantity of
blankets, which the Hremen soaked
in water and wrapped around tbem
to enable tbem to withstand tbe intense heat.
The telephone company did some
quick work after the lire in repairing the damage done to the poles
aud wires. As a result, telephone
communication was interrupted but
for a short time. The city electrician also had the lighting system of
the city in working order shortly
after tbe fire had been   extinguised.
Tbe books and papers of the
(irand Forks Agricultural association and the board of trade were destroyed by tbe lire.
A. S. McKim, the grocer, has
moved into the west half of the
Dreamland theatre. The Boundary
Trust and Investment cempany will
ocoupy the other half of the building.
W. C. Chalmers is moving into
the Sheads building, on Bridge
street, lately occupied by the 0. K.
bakery.
P. Burns & Co. are now doing
business in the Davis black, in the
quarters formerly occupied by the
Robinson meat market.
The Boundary Trust it Investment company has secured temporary quarters iu the Yale hotel.
Tha Mann  Drug company has
moved into   tbe  store on  Second
street  lately  occupied   by  Ruber
Lawsou.
The C.P.R. telegraph oflice has
moved into the (Jaw block ou Winnipeg avenue.
T. A. Mclntyre will reopen bis
hardware store iu N. I>. Mcintosh's
building on Second street, lately
occupied by the Miners' union.
W. K. C. Manly has uot yet selected a new business location, but
states that if he continues iu business he will rebuild.
T. Waldron will reopen his barber
shop in the Imperial billiard parlors on Bridge street.
The Kettle Valley restaarant still
continues in business, although the
dining-room was entirely destroyed
by the lire.
K. J. Gardner will probably enter iuto a partnership with Frank J.
Miller.
R. F. Petrie bas not announced
his future intention!.
The losses sustained by some of
the business men were very heavy.
In some instances the accumulations
of the most energetic part of their
lives was swept away by the flames
in  an   hour's time.     With com-
FARMING TOPICS
Two  Interesting Meetings
on Proper Distribution
of Water
Prof. A. 10. Etchevery, ot California State college, Berkeley, deliver an illustrated lecture in the
opera house last Monday night on
"Irrigation: Its Installation and Application." With the aid of the
lantern slides, the professor showed
the proper method of constructing
the various irrigation systems now
used in California; the relative advantages of deep and shallow irrigation furrows; the proper distance
of the furrows from tbe trees at different periods of tbe trees' growth,
and tbe number of furrows between
tbe trees td obtain the best results.
At the conclusion of his address the
professor was tenderod a hearty vote
of thanks. Mr. Etchevery has
been appointed by the provincial
government to investigate thc vari
ous irrigation systems and projects
throughout the semi-arid belt of
British Columbia. As an authority
on irrigation problems he is recognized as one of the moat competent
on the American continent, having
full charge of all state works in California. He lett on Tuesday tu continue his work in other districts of
the province.
Thursday night Prof. R. W. Allen,
of Hermieton, Ore., delivered a most
interesting address to one of the
largest meetings ever held by the
Kettle Valley Farmers' institute, tbe
opera house being well tilled with
ranchers. Before taking up thc subject of irrigation he gave a thirty-
minute talk on very timely topics-
thinning of fruit and summer pruning. These subjects he handled in
a thoroughly satisfactory manner,
and his remarks were iinieli appreciated by the fruit growers present.
He recommended late summer pruning, from thc middle nf August to
the 1st of September for promoting
fruit spurs.
Taking up the subject of irrigation, the first portion of his address
was devoted to the rough or newly
brokeu laud— bow it could be leveled
off; the sage brush, and how to remove it from the land. Then came
tbe laying of the pipes, and the
making of furrows. The lecturer
showed the right method in contrast to several other, poorly laid
out, finishing up with the model
orchard. Sumuiiug up his remarks,
he urged liberal irrigation, but not
to excess, using deep instead of
shallow furrows so as to avoid surface sooting, aud stopping it early
enough to harden up the trees for
winter. Kxcessive irrigation often
led to the formation of alkali, and
the ruination of orchards. Cover
crops were valuable in many ways,
but especially because tbey helped
to dry out the ground in the fall and
thus check the growth of wood. Dur-
tuendable heroism and enterprise,
however, they have commenced a;
second business career. For tbeir'
indomitable courage and public
spirit in their efforts to rebuild the
city tbey deserve a liberal share of!
tbe peoplt's patronage. I
ing the lecture many questions of
loeal interest were asked and answered. On motion of C. E. Lawrence, of Kamloops, a very hearty
vote of thanks was tenderod the
speuker, also to the 1.0.0. F. and
K. of P. lodges for the use of their
tine lantern, and to Mr. Gardner,
wbo operated the same. The views
were excellent.
In the afternoon  Professor Allen
gave a most practical demonstration
of the use and abuse of water.    He
showed the relative   advantages   of j
deep and shallow furrows, and the
proper distances apart   for furrows,
the percolation of water through the
soil, and the economical application
of water.    He also discussed  many
of the problems   which come with
the distribution and use of water.!
The demonstration was beld ut the <
Doull ranch,about thirty-five ranch- i
era being present.
Death of Mills
The funeral of Mrs. Clara Mills
was held from the Presbyterian
church at 2:30 on Sunday afternoon.
A large number of friend*, and acquaintances of the family of the deceased paid their last tribute of respect to the memory of the departed. The funeral service was
conducted by Rev. M. D. McKee.
Mrs. Mills met her death while
nut fishing near her home up in tbe
North Fork country on Friday evening last. She was standing ou a
slippery log, and, becoming overbalanced, fell into the river, and
drowned before assistance could
reach her.
Deceased was only 2:1 years of
age. She was the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Hill, and was married a
few years ago to Chester W. Mills,
a North Fork timberman. She is
survived by her husband and a
young daughter.

and true, so kind to everybody! Oh,
I know he was weak—I know that he
had been sent away from' England
because he had fallen into bad company here. I know too, that he was
a little fond of drink. There was
only one point on which he was reticent—he never spoke much about
his people; but 1 rather gathered
tliat they were in a high position."
"Oh, they were," Fenwick grinned.
"You'd be surprised if you knew how
high a position.   But go on."
"I was saying that I could not
credit Charles Evors with such a
crime. A man who is so fond of children, so sympathetic to weaker things
than himself, could not have taken
the life of a fellow creature. He was
j fond of my father, too, but that was
not the strangest feature of the mystery.    Do you suppose for a moment
Vera's   meditations   were  cut short,                   ...
by the appearance of the man him-1tlmt _he man_.who was engaged to be
self.    To her surprise she noted that   ""    '   * ' '
he was dressed in some blue material, just like an engineer on board
ship. His bunds were grimy too, as
if he had heen indulging in sonic
mechanical work. He nodded curtly
to the girl.
"So you've come at last," he said
married to my   sister   would   have
laid violent hands on her father?"
"But he did do it," Fenwick eried
impatiently. "Otherwise why did he
vanish so mysteriously? Why did
he go away and leave us to infer
that he had perished at sea? It was
the kindest thing we could do to let
"I  daresay you  wonder why  I  sent I y°ur sistl'r think that her lover was
for you.   There is a little room at the .dead, .though    thc    shock    seems to
back yonder, behind the drawing-
room, that I have turned into a
study. Go in there and wait for me.
I'll come as soon as 1 have washed
my hands. I have something serious
to say to you."
With a sinking at her heart Vera
passed into the little room that Fenwick had pointed out to her. At
any other time she would have admired the old furniture and the elegant refined simplicity of it all; now
she had other things to think of.
She stood warming her hands at tbe
fire till Fenwick came in and carefully closed the door after hiin.
"Now we can get to business," he
said. "I daresay you wonder why
sent for you instead of leaving you
in London for the present. Up to
now I have aways regarded you as
perfectly safe—indeed, I thought you
were sufficiently grateful to me for
all my kindness to you. I find I am
mistaken."
Vera looked up with challenge in
her eyes. She knew that she had
something to face now, and she
meant to see it through without
showing the white feather. She was
braced up and ready, now that tbe
moment for action had come.
"Have you ever really been kind to
me?" she challenged. "I mean,
have you really been kind to me for
my own sake, and out of pure good
nature?   I very much doubt it."
"This is your gratitude," Fenwick
■sneered. "I think we had better understand one another."
"I would give o great deal to understand you," the girl said boldly
"But we are wasting time fencing
here like this, and I am very tired.
You sent for me at this extraordinary
hour and I came. 1 have every right
to know why you asked me to come
here."
"Sit down," Fenwick growled. "I
sent for you because I did not trust
you. I sent for you because you
have betrayed your promise. You
are doing something that you told
me you would not do."
"And what is that?" Vera asked.
"Just as if you did not know. Let
us go hack a bit, back three years
and a half ogo. Your father was alive
in those days; it was just before he
met his death in Mexico."
"I remember perfectly," Vera said.
"I am not likely to forget the time.
Pray continue."
"Oh, yes, I am coming to it. Your
father died more or less mysteriously, but there was not the shadow of a
doubt that he waa murdered. Nobody knows how he was murdered,
but a good many people behind the
scenes can guess why. The thing
was hushed up, possibly because the
tragedy took place in so remote a
corner of the world—possibly because
the authorities were bribed. Tell me
the name of the one man who was
with your father at the time of his
death."
Vera's face paled slightly, but she
kept her eyes steadily fixed on her
companion's face. She began to see
now where the point of torture was
coming in.
"I will not affect to misunderstand
you," she said. "The man who was
with my father at that time was Mr.
Charles Evors. He was a sort of pupil of my father's, and had more
tban once accompanied him on his
excursions. You want to insinuate
that my father met his death at the
hands ot this young man, who, overcome hy temptation and a desire lo
obtain the secret of the Four Finger
Mine, murdered his master."
"1 am in a position to prove it,"
Fenwick said sternly. "1 have given
you practical proof of it more than
once. Why should I have interfered
in the way I did unless it was to
save you pain? I could have brought
the whole thing into the light of day
but I refrained from doing so, because it seemed to me nothing could
he gained by bringing the criminal to
justice. I had another reason, too,
as you know."
"Yes, I am aware of that." Vera
said. "I could never make it out—
I could never really believe that
Charles Evors was guilty of that
dreadful  crime.    He  was   so  frank,

have deprived her of her reason; and
though I acted all for the best, your
brother chose to proclaim me an
abandoned scroundrel and to say that
your father's death lay at my door.
You know why it became necessary
for you to remain with me and treat
your brother henceforth as a stranger. You volunteered to do it, you
volunteered to turn your back on
your family and stay with me. Why
did you do so?"
No reply came from Vera's lips.
It seemed to her that her safest
course lay in silence. To her great
relief Fenwick went on without waiting for an answer.
"Now I am coining to my point.'
he said. "You have broken faith
with me. Three or four times since
we came to England you have seen
your brother. You have seen him by
stealth; you know all about that
strange household in Portsmouth
Square where he chooses to hide
himself under the name of Bates. I
want to know why it is that you have
chosen to break your word with me?
I have had you watched tonight and
I have learnt all your movements by
means of the telephone. You will
stay down here during my pleasure.
If you fail to do so, if you try to deceive me again, as sure as I stand
here at the present moment I will betray Charles Evors into the hands of
the police. Now look me in the face
and answer my question truthfully.
Do you know where that young man
is?"
It was fortunate lor Vera that Bhe
could reply in the negative. A few
more hours, perhaps, and she might
have been able to afford the informa-
tion; but, luckily for her, the start
ling events that had recently taken
place in Portsmouth Square were not
known to her in their entirety. She
could look Fenwick in the face.
"I don't," she said, "I Have never
seen him since that fateful morning
—but 1 don't care to go into that.
I admit too, that I have seen my
sister; the temptation to find them
and see them oiice more was too
strong for me. You will not be surprised to find that I have some natural feeling left. It is not so very
extraordinary."
Fenwick shot a suspicious glance
at Vera, but she was gazing into the
fire with a thoughtful look. She was
acting ber part splendidly; she was
deceiving this man who, as a rule,
could read the thoughts of most people.
"Perhaps you are right," he said,
doubtfully. "But to make assurance
doubly sure you are going to help
me out of a difficulty. I suppose
you have not forgotten Felix Zary?"
"No," Vera said in a curiously low
voice, "I have not forgotten my
father's faithful companion. I should
like very much to see him again. If
you know where he is "
"Oh, 1 know where he is," Fenwick
said with a laugh. "We will have
him down here as a pleasant surprise. That is all I want you to do—
I want you to writ* a letter to Zary
telling him that you lire in great
trouble, and asking him to come
down here and see you at once. I
should  like  you  to write that letter
CHAPTER XVIII.
A Couple of Vititort
Something in the tone of Fenwick's
voice caused Vera to look up hastily.
Perhaps it was her imagination that
in the unsteady light of the flickering fire his face seemed to have
changed almost beyond recognition.
The features were dark and murderous, the eyes were full of a lust for
vengeance. It was only just for a
moment—then the man became his
normal self again just as if nothing
had happened. A violent shudder
passed over Vera's frame, but Fenwick appeared to notice nothing of
this.
You want me to write that letter
now?" she asked.
"At once," Fenwick responded.
I don't mind telling you that I am
in great trouble over business matters; there is a conspiracy on foot
amongst certain people to get me into trouble. I may even find myself
inside the walls of a prison. The
man who can save me from all this
is' your friend Felix Zary. Unfortunately for me, the man has thn
bad taste to dislike me exceedingly.
He seems to think that I was in
some way responsible for your lather's death. And, as you know, he
loved your father with a devotion
that was almost dog-like.   If I could
get Zary down here I should have
no difficulty in convincing him that
he was wrong. But he would not
come near the place so long as he
knew that I was present; so therefore, I want you to write to him and
conceal the fact that I am on the
premises. Directly he gets your letter he will come at once."
"I have not the slightest doubt of
it," Vera said slowly. "There is nothing that Zary would not do for
one of us, if you will assure me that
you mean no harm by bim "
"Harm?" Fenwick shouted. "What
harm could 1 do the man? Didn't I
tell you just now that I wanted him
to do me a favor? One does not generally ill-treat those who are in a position to bestow favors. Now sit down
like the good girl that you are, and
write that letter at once. Then you
can go tn bed."
"I will write it in the morning,"
Vera said. "Surely there cannot be
all this desperate hurry. If the letter is written before the post goes out
to-morrow afternoon it will be in
good time. I am 'much too tired to
do it now."
Just for a moment Fenwick's eyes
blazed angrily again. It seemed to
Vera that the man was about to burst
forth into a storm of passion. The
hot words did not come, however, for
Fenwick restrained himself. Perhaps he was afraid of going a little
too far; perhaps he was afraid of
arousing Vera's suspicions, and thus
defeating his own object by a refusal
on her part to write the letter. He
knew from past experience that Vera
could be as firm of purpose as himself if she chose.
"Very well," he said with an almost grotesque attempt at good
humor. "You look very tired tonight and I daresay you have had a
fatiguing journey—and after all, tliere
is no great hurry. I will show you
up to the room which I have set
apart for your use."

A VILLAGE TALL
Hiss Elv_.ro Eunice Parker,
Single lady-by devlre—
Tears ago was quite determined
What she'd do In case of fire.
Thus ahe reasoned: "1 would dress im
Wholly without perturbation,
Gather up my chief belongings,

Prom Its hook take down the parrot.
Cheery partner of my labors;
Then I'd raise my chamber window
And alarm the sleeping neighbors/'
Well, one night a fire started
As Miss Parker slept.  The smoke her

Suffocutlng smell awoke her.
Did she dt> ss she had reasoned?
No: she quite forgot her scheming.
And with shrieks she roused the neigh •
bors
From the sweetest of their dreaming.
She threw vases from the window.
Tnbitha her own salvation
Had to seek out, while the parrot
Used a word that ends with -ation.
When the neighbors came they found a
White robed figure wildly screaming
All the tire was soon extinguished.
But she kept on loudly calling:
'Tire!   Fire!   Fire!   Fire!'
ln a manner most appalling.
And the neighbors, having stopped bar,
When they Unally departed
Left Miss Parker, single lady,
In the ruins broken hearted.

In the advertising columns nf a
Toronto evening newspaper the following advertisement recently appeared:

opportunity for bright, obliging boy.

lw so happened that the sum ol
{4.000 mentioned was a misprint lor
*4.00, but some applicants failed to
see the error. Among the replies
received by the wholesale firm in
question was the following;
Gentlemen,—in reply to your ad
vertisement in the Evening Telegram
.if March 18th, 1011, I ..ereby beg to

where my duties consist in filling the
airship tanks with gasoline and posting tne mgnt mail for the different

was employed with the Moon and Sun

Gateway In tho Middle Weit.
Between Kenora and the Rockies
there are six points wherp United
(States immigrants enter Canada. The
chief of these is North Portal, a few
miles south of Moose Jaw. During
evry day of the year ending March
31st there passed ten carloads of set-
tiers' effects—northward, ever northward. The total number of cars was
3 218, more than ten for every work
ine customs' day in the year. And
with the cars came tbe settlors-
northward, ever northward. German-
Americans, Canadian-Americans, Nor-
wegian-Am-'ricans, 8wedish-Amer'-
cans, and Americans—all bearing
northward, where land is twenty dollars an acre instead of sixty or a
hundred. During the \ear there wen.
27.(182 of th»«e trekkers, nearly ninety
a day. Think of it, nearly one hundred people entering Canada every
day nt a town which not one per
cent, of Canadians have ever s»en.
and of which not ten per cent, have
evr heard.
North Portal is the southern gateway to Saskatchewan and Alberta,
as Winnipeg is the eastern gateway.
One day last we»k over three thous
and immigrants from Europe passed
westward through Winnipeg. That
is a daily record which North Portal
cannot eqjol. hut, nevertheless.
North Portal is second in the race
for immigration records. In quality
of settler and in size of bankroll,
perhaps North Portal is first.
What Johnny  Noticed.
That the mind of the schoolboy
works in a peculiar way at times is
the opinion ol a teacher in a school
at Port William, Ont.
Believing that he had a good oppor.
tunity to inculcate the idea of protecting the weak, he read from a news-
Saper an account of thc destruction
y wolves in Galicia of all but two
people in a bridal party nf one hun
dred. He impressed upon the children the fact that the men of the
party fed the women and children to
the ravenous wolves. And then he told
them of the heroic men, who, when
lhe steamer Birkenhead was doom-d
to sink, put the women and children
in i.,e boats and calmly awaited death
Having told of these well-contrasted
happenings, thc teacher then question*
ed the pupil* as to what struck them
oonceming the two terrible events.
One youngster said, "Please, the
(toitirn and children went flrst ii
both."
Cookery
Birthday Cake.-When a child's birthday happens to fall on a special holiday tbe colors appropriate to tbat occasion can be used in the candles—a*
buff and blue for tbe 22d of February,

Wonderful color combinations can be
made with colored Icings—put on with
a pastry tube in designs—and candles
to harmonize or form a contrast.
Every child sbould be given tbe privilege of cutting his own birthday cake.
Canning birthday cakes of tiny proportions can be bought for baby's tint'
birthday. The one candle Is larger
tban those used later and sometime*

FADING JIT_THIRTY
When Woman Should be in
the Prime of Charm
and Beauty
At thirty to thirty-five a woman
should be in the prime of charm and
beauty, and yet many woman begin
to fade befor.e then. Wrinkles appear
and the complexion grows sallow.
Dark rings surround the eyes, and
headaches follow, with backaches and
low spirits. The cause oi this is simply need of blood nourishment. Good,
pure blood is the life of n woman's
benuty nnd henlth. It is good blood
thnt brings the glow of health to the
cheek, brightness to the eye, nnd
elasticity to the step, nnd the general
happiness of good health. When woman feels jaded and worn out her
blood simply needs attention, and thc
one unrivalled and sure remedy is Dr.
Willinms' Pink Pills, whicli supply
the rich, red blood that repairs the
waste, dispels disease and restores
the brightness and charm of womanly
health.
Mrs. H. G. Hnrt, Winnipeg, Mnn.,
is one of the thousands of sufferers
who owes her present health to Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. She says: "I
had suffered for a long time, not
knowing what tbe trouble was, I had
doctored with several doctors, but
only seemed to be growing worse.
The last doctor I had told me the
trouble was anaemia, that my blood
wns turned to water and that my
condition wns serious. But his trent-
ment, like tbe rest, did me no good.
I got so bnd thnt if I excited myself,
or went up stnirs, I wns completely
out of breath nnd felt as if I was going to suffocate. My heart would palpitate violently, nnd at times I would
suffer with terrible pains from it. I
had a yellow complexion, my lips had
lost their color, and I had no appetite and could not eat. I grew so
wenk I could hardly drng myself
nlong, and my feet seemed to hnve
weights on them. I wns so completely run down thnt I thought I wns going into consumption. At this time a
friend urged me to take Dr. Willinms'
Pink Pills. After taking a few boxes
I found my health improving, nnd nfter tnking the Pills for n couple of
months I wns entirely well, nnd have
since enjoyed the hest of health, nnd
1 feel thnt I ean never say enough in
praise of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
These Pills nre sold by all dealers
in medicine or sent hy mail at 50

A Book of Interest to Horse Owners
Every horse owner worthy of the
name takes n naturnl nnd commendable pride in keeping his horse in
prime condition. With sensible feeding, proper cure nnd n reasonable
nmount of work, there is no trouble
in doing this. Under such conditions
a sound horse looks fine und feels
well—is nlwnys rendy for service und
brings the top price when sold.
But accidents will happen, a slight
wrench, a sprain, a cut, or some unknown cause may result in lameness.
Spavins, ringbones, curbs or splints
come sooner or later to every stable.
Taken promptly and treated properly
rone of these troubles are serious.
Hut if neglected nr given the wrong
treatment, they quickly decrease a
horse's ability for work as well n«
h's cash value. It is most important
therefore,  that    every    horse    owner
should have   n   good knowledge of
the horse, his atlmenti und disenses,
nml the remedies to be applied, H<*
should know just how to treat all
ordinary ailment., ami just when it
ii necessary to cull in    the    greater
skill of the veterinary.
One of the quickest and best ways
to get posted on this matter is to
read the little bonk. "A Treatise on
the Horse and His Diseases," published by the Dr. B. .1. Kendall Co., |

CITY AND DISTRICT NEWS
L. A. Riddell and H. Reid left
on Wednesday for tbe Kelowna district, where tbey intend to locate.
FRIDAY, JULY 28,  1911
The indications are tbat there
will be a general election in September or October. The government
could secure a more sweeping victory were it able to ratify the reciprocity agreement and give it a year's
test before appealing to the country.
However, there is no doubt of the
pact being endorsed by the people.
The business men wbo suffered
such heavy losses in Tuesday morning's fire are exhibiting commendable enterprise in so quickly resuming business. The Sun joins tho
general public in expressing regret
for their misfortune. We believe,
however, that they will weather the
catastrophetriumphantly.and that in
a year or two the city will be gainer
by thc destruction of the old frame
buildings.
PRESS COMMENT
Sir Max. Aitken, M.P., was worth
exactly $300,000 worth of "great service to the Unionist party" iu the
United kingdom.—A'ictoria Times,
Faced with tlie prospect of au immediate election on reciprocity, those
who have been demanding it have
started in to talk about redistribution.
Tbey might as well let the agreement
be voted, and then they can talk redistribution till the cows come home.
—Montreal Herald,
Martin Burrell, M.P., at the Tuea
day night meeting, argued against
recigrocity became it took away protection from one class of producers
and let it stand iu the case of others.
He said this evolved class autaugon-
.- m, and put one part of the people of
Canada against another; that the only
fair method was to protect all alike or
none at all. Mr. Raruard, on tbe
other band, opposed reciprocity in natural products because, lie said, it
must inevitably lead to reciprocity iu
manufactured articles. One opposed
reciprocity because it does not go far
enough, and thu other because it is
bound soon to go ull the way. The
kernel of the whole matter is that both
oppose reciprocity in nny degree because it la u blow at high tariffs, high

NEWSPAPER COMMENT
A careful and constant perusal of
the Canadian newspapers, Liberal and
Conservative, side by side and in alternating doses, forces the conviction
that political hysteria is very badly
afflicting the Tory organs. The Liberal papers proceed with one accord
wish even tenor along the way of fact,
figure, liij^ic and deduction in tbeir
support of reciprocity, while the opposition press sufl'ers constant nightmare
with every conceivable form of ghostly
fear. About the best thing we have
seen as yet in all these literary pilgrimages is Geo. 11. Cowan's declaration that, for tbe sake of a better
market for 4 per cent of our Cauadiau
products, Canada is preferring to disjoint the hinges of empire.—Victoria

The Colonist denies that it puli-
lisheil T. P. O'Connor's write-up of
Premier McBriile as was attributed
to it by this pnper. It is evident the
article appeared in the other Matson
paper, the News-Advertiser, and an
error in names was made. Hut the
denial of the Colonist raises another
point. If the Colonist did not reproduce Tay Poy's fulsome praises of our
"revered chief,'' why didn't it! Did
the Colonist have.so much respect for
the intelligence of its renders that it
could not reproduce Tay Pay's ridicu
lous pabulum and save its blushes!
Other Tory papers in Hritish Columbia liked the stuff and published it,
and it no doubt was to the liking of
Premier McBride. Why waa it not
approved by the Colonist! Isn't the
premier as bis; a man as Tay Pav
shews him to be, or is that he is quite
as small as Tay Pay also shews hiin to
be? Really this absteuision of the
Colonist from publishing such a brilliant article by so distinguished a
writer and about "our revered leader"
raises so many vexing questions tliat
I think I shall pass the whole problem
ovur to ihe Bowser Tories of Villi-
fouvcr for solution, What say you,
gentlemen, was thu reason why the
Colonist did mil reproduce thu T. I'
O'Connor sketch of Premier McBride,
a noble piece of literature with a noble subject for a theme!—Saturday
Sunset.
Both local papers are much e*er
cisul over llm knighting of Mat
Aitken, until recently a company promoter in Montreal, but now, thanks
to watered stuck and au aggressive
American wife, Sir Max Aitken and
au Knglish M.P. Both papers agree
that he has done nothing whatever in
Canada to justify the honor whicli he
has received. The Colonist, however,
lakes tho view   that  uilen _
nominated for the honor by the gover
nor-general, on the advice of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Canadians have 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 mnn of Mr. Aitken* type is a
fair matter for criticism throughout
the empire, and overy one familiar
with the circumstances will regret
that the king was advised to couple
his name with tliose of many worthy
men who have rendered distinguished
public service, lt is difficult to believe tnat Sir Max Aitken nwos his
title to Canadian influence; it is much
more probable that it is duo to a
princely contribution to the party
campaign funds at the last British
elections.--Victoria Week,
The staff correspondent of tho Toronto Telegram who accompanied Mr,
Borden in his recent tour of the West,
commenting on the difference between
an .'.astern and Western audience:
"Western meetings are conducted iu
an orderly way unusual in the Kast.
Speakers get a rousing welcome when
they arise, and the heartiest of applause when they conclude. Occasionally a cheer will burst forth at
some point, but for the most pill"
vast audiences have listened three
hours on end as if to a lecture, silent
and keenly attentive. Sometimes an
orator almost fears he is fatiguing his
hearers till he reflects ou that shuffling of feet which spells borehoin."
This is a delicate way of saying that
Mr. Borden's audiences have been
bored.

Trustees of the Spokane chamber
of commerce, at a meetiug last Tuesday, adopted resolutions to request
the chambers of commerce, boards of
trade and commercial organizations of
eastern Washington, northern Idaho
and the provinces of British Columbia
and Alberta to consider ways and
means of en-operation for the purpose
of assisting in settling the strike of
the miners in the Crow's Nest coal
district, which has been in progress
since March *.!). The movement was
originated by the Western Fuel association of Spokaue.
The resolution points out that the
supply of coal from the Crow's Nest
Pass mines is used largely in eastern
Washington and Idaho and furnishes
practically tho entire supply of steam
ooal foi 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 Alberta. It
also states that many residents of Spo
kane are financially interested in the
mines, and that the Spokane International railroad, which has access to
the mines, is owned by Spokane
people.
li,. F. Waggoner, a trustee of tlie
chamber of commerce and the Western Fuel association, is reported as
saying in an interview:
"The steam coal trade of Spokane is
supplied principally by British Columbia mines, and, unless the strike is
settled very ipiickly, the local dealers
will have to look elsewhere for their
supplies, as tho mines, if they do not
resume operating soon, will not lie
able to supply tho home trade, and, us
a consequence, will be unable tu export very little, if any, coal during
the next four or live months."

testimony to that of the thousands

cure Kidney Disense.
"I suffered for twelve yenrs," Mrs.
Alexander says, "My back ached,
my sleep was broken and unrefrt__.li-

A Commonplace
Occurrence
It Changed the Course of Two
Lovers
By HUDSON C. EASTON
Copyright by American Prase Association. 19U.
Walking on an avenue In Washing.
ton I met a lady whose appearance attracted me. Sbe suddenly stopped,
looked down aud blushed to the roots
of her batr. Her skirt had become
unloosened ot the waist
"Can 1 do anything for you?" 1
Mked.
Sbe looked wildly about her for a
plan and anally caught one. "Have
70a a pin or a bit of string la your
pocket?" ihe asked.
I went tbrough every pocket and at
lut found a piece of corn colored ribbon tbat bad bound together a package
of cigars. 1 handed lt to her wltb au
expression whicb asked tbe question,
"Will that do?"
She seized It, at tbe same time thanking me with a uod wblcb plainly
meant, "Proceed on your way."
If I had not happened ra bave that
piece of cheap ribbon In my pocket, If that lady's skirt had not become
unloosened at tbe exact moment 1
passed ber, 1 would now be surrounded by an entirely different environment
While I was sufficiently Impressed
with the youug lady's appearance—ber
face was one tbat I would not easily
forget—tbe Incident soon passed out of
my mind. Several montba passed. One
day 1 marie a business trip to Philadelphia and on my return was sitting
In a train waiting for It to move out
of tbe station. Harrying along outside
was tbe girl I had assisted ln ber difficulty, and on ber corsage was a bit of
corn colored ribbon tied ln a bowknot
At tbat moment the train began to roll
slowly on Its wheels.
Two conflicting emotions stirred me

Impossible for me to learn anything
about wbere sbe mlgbt be found. I
didn't know whether or no sbe lived
In Philadelphia wbere I saw ber for
tbe second time, wbetber she lived In
Washington or some different locality
from either. Wby had 1 not left tbe
train and rushed after her? Because
1 bad but a few seconds to decide tbe
matter, and In tbat brief space of time
my mlud was chiefly occupied wltb
reasons wby I sbould not do tbat very
thing. My business required tbat 1
should reach borne on that train. It
I got out and followed tbe girl quite
likely I would lose ber In tbe crowd.
A new element bad entered Into my
being. A girl bad fallen lu love witb
me, so I believed, tt Bret eight and
wis wearing t token by wblcb I mlgbt

time tbere were more tben 70,000,000
people. I bad no other Information
concerning ber except that tbe was

not this quite enough to twtken In
me t strong desire to And ber? Tbe
romance of love Is fed by the Imagination. I lived, at lt were, In tlr castles.

princess tbtt tbe prince wat hunting
all over the world and to whom be
wu it list led by tbe fairy. True,
my Snt meeting with my princess was
especially unromantlc. Nevertheless I
wished tbat tome kind fairy would
conduct me to ber.
One day 1 told my friend Calkins
•bout my adventure. Ho listened to

"80 you're tbe nun thit wu wtnted

"AU of tbem."
"I remember nothing bnt that t lady
who hid met with in accident advertised for tbe address of 1 gentleman
who bid assisted her, tnd the address
iwaa signed sa I have told you."
"OaUUns," 1 said fiercely, "you will
remember ln what piper and when 1
you mw thit ad. or die."
"Then my doom It sealed," laughed
Calkins, "for I can remember neither."
Could tbere be anything more tantalizing—a lovely woman trying to find ;
me, 1 trying to find her, and all our
efforts averted?
"Ob, wby bave 1 not read all tbe
personals," 1 cried, "In all the papers
every day?"
"Because you couldn't have done anything else," replied Calkins, "and, not
bavlng time to make a living, you
would have starved to death."
"Can't you suggest something?"
"Yes; forget all about It A woman
who would advertise like tbat Is probably an adventuress anyway."
"If you say tbat again I'll strangle
you."
"Truth crushed In the throat would
rise again."
"She Is pure as an angel. Come, old
man, tell me some way to find ber."
"I give It up."
Several weeks passed In misery for
me, wben ln a Philadelphia newspaper
1 read of tbe trial of a Mlsa Octavla
Merton wbich waa soon to come off ln
tbat city. She was accused of having
stolen some valuable gems wbile one
of a bouse party at a lady's country
seat Wbat wu n.y astonishment to
see In a description of Miss Merton tbe
following words:
Id ber corsage she weare a bow of
orange or corn colored ribbon.
1 sprang to my feet I bad found
my love. Rut, alas. Calkins was
right Sbe was an adventuress. Her
personal, taken together wltb tbis
cbsrge. waa conclusive proof of this.
And yet tbe Item said that she wat
1 member of tbe house party. This
Indicated that tf ahe were a thief abe
must be a lady, and a lady of tbe upper classes would not be likely to advertise for tbe address ot a man abe
had met on tbe street
I hurriedly wrote a note to tn attorney ln Philadelphia whom 1 knew,
asking bim to keep me posted as to
tbe coming off of tbe trial ln whleb I
wu so deeply Interested, lu reply I
received a telegram stating tbat tt was
down on the calendar for tbe next
day. I went to Philadelphia tbat nlgbt
tnd tbe nest morning appeared among
tbe spectators ln a back seat wbere 1
would not be observed.
When tbe accused was led Into court
I recognized ber at once for tbe girl I
bad beeu seeking. Sbe was very pale
and appeared to bave suffered much.
1 could not see if sbe wore tbe ribbon,
for au outside coat was buttoned over
her ehest.
I listened eagerly to a statement of
tbe case made hy the prosecuting attorney. Tbe girl was a member of a
house party; tbe Jewels were missed,
and ahe afterward wore one of tbem
tbat the owuer claimed was hers. Miss
Merton's counsel claimed that It had
for years been bis client's property.
He also uld tbat on tbe day the Jewels were atoleu she bad taken a flying
trip to Washington, but since her object ln going tbere was secret she bad
kept a knowledge of ber trip from
every one wbo knew ber. "Were It
not for tbis secrecy, your honor." concluded tbe attorney, "we could easily
bave proved au alibi."
Jumping from my seat I burrled
down tu the roll, called for the attorney and ln an undertone gave him
the pointa of my meeting witb the
accused In Wasblugtou. He at once
put me on tbe aland and In a series
of questions drew out my evidence.
Wben be naked me for tbe date of this
meeting I waa puzzled, but finally recalled lt us tbe day of an Important
meeting tu wblcb I was going wben
I I met Miss Merton.
"Old anything pass between you and
the accused?" he aaked.
"Yei. something passed between ut
tbat will corroborate my story If sbe
still possesses It. I gave ber 1 bit of
corn colored ribbon."
Wltb tbtt Miss Merton threw open
ber coat and displayed tbe token.
Tbere wit suppressed applauM
among the spectators, Tbe attorney
put hi* client on tbe stand.
"Wby do you wear that ribbon?" be
"1 have worn it ever since 1 nave
been accused, hoping that the gentleman wbo gave lt to me might eee It
and by proving tbat I wat ln Washington on tbe day tbe Jewels were stolen
exonerate me. I also advertised for
bis address, but received no reply."
Of course tbere waa an acquittal
without tbe Jury leaving tbe box. I
wu taken by Miss Merton't counsel to
hut client and Introduced to ber. I
bad been mlataken ln ber object In
wearing tbe token, but It ahe bid done
eo for tbe reason I bid supposed she
could not hive given me t winner
pressure of tbe band er a look wltb
more heart ln lt
"Just think," the uld. "had it not
been for you I would bave been convicted!"
"It wat t close call," tald the attorney, wbo teemed aa much relieved u
bla client
"Fate," I said, "had a purpose ln
bringing about the very commonplace
accident tbat occurred Just at tbe moment we met"
If my words referred to ber vindication tbe look I gave ber ln speaking
tbem referred to something beyond.
Thut sbe understood my meaning wu
evident from a blush.
And now I am back to wbat I uld
In tbe beginning of this story with regard to those slight happenings which
will at times turn the whole course ot
our lives. When Miss Merton's skirt
I came unfastened I wat t clerk ln the
treasury department ln Washington.
I Now I am tbat lady's buaband tnd tht
father of ber children. 1 reside In
Philadelphia and am a banker tbere.
What would t have been had not thit |
accident changed the course of my I
life? Doubtless a lone old bach aad
I government clerk.	
Mabee Carried It.
There is a good story told of Chairman Mabee of the Railway Commission. It hu to do with a certain
bylaw which was to be submitted in
Stratford, the purport of which is a
matter of no moment Mr. Idington
was city solicitor. He was violently
opposed to the proposition. He wa»
lo address a public meeting, and the
friends of the bylaw were almost
panic-«tricken. for they had no mn-
terial heavy enough to oppose him.
At this critical moment, however, a
member of the Board of Trade had
an inspiration. He imparted his idea
to a few of his colleagues, and they
at once sought out Mr. Mabee. He
took little interest in civic affairs,
had no knowledge of the question at
issue, but he loved a "scrap," and
he quickly fell in with the plan. The
meeting was held, and after Mr.
idington had fired all bis big guns,
Mr. Mabee appeared on the platform.
To all but those concerned in the
plot, his arrival was a surprise. Then,
tor the space of an hour or so. to the
infinite delight of his hearers, he
proceeded to twist Mr. Idington inside out. lt cannot be said that he
had his "case" well prepared. He
did not know the intricacies of the
situation, but he did know how to
make fun ol his opponent. Alter
that night there wu nothing to it
Kut the bvlaw.
Gorgeous Mantles.
It ll possible that Knights of tbe
Garter, tbe Thistle, St. Patrick, the
Bath, Star of India, St. Michael and
St. George, and the Indian Empire
will be allowed to wear the mantles
which indicate their respective orders
at the coronation. 11 this idea is followed out additional splendor will be
added to the scene in the Abbey, for
tin mantles are of a very gorgeous
description. The mantle of the Garter,
tor ii.oi.iu.ee, is ui Uark-olue velvet,
lined with taffetas. With tn.s there is
t sorcoat ol orimson velvet lined like
the mantle and adorned like it, on the
left breast, with an eight-pointed silver-embroidered star, vtittliu wmch is
tne red cross of bt. George, the whole
encircled by a miniature blue garter.
| ine mantle oi tne Thistle is ol green
velvet, aim l.iat of bt. Patrick is oi
sKj'-blue tabbinet, l.ned with white
silk. The mantle of the Bath is red,
and 011 very high state occasions the
Knights are entitled to wear crimson
surcoats, vest and breeches ol white
satin, white stockings and shoes, golden spurs, and a hign-crowned hat with
a plume ol white leathers. The mantle
of tne Star oi India is of light-blue
satin, lined witli white, and adorned
with blue and silver tassels with a
representation ol the 8tar. The mantle and chapeau uf St. Michael and
til. George are of blue satin, lined
with scarlet silk, the hat surmounted
with black feathers.
Quite a contrast is afforded by the
mantle of the Indian Empire, which is
ui purple satin, lined wilh white silk,
ind fastened with purple silk and gold
tassels, and on its leit a representation ol the Star.
A Captain of Industry.
"To travel hopefully is better than
to arrive, and the true success is
labor." These words, once written
by Robert Ixiuis 8tevenson, hang
above the desk of Mr. 11. Gordon
Selfridge, the head of thc enormous
store in Oxford street, London, who
was recently the victim in a motor
smash. They provide the keynote ol
the character of the man who, starting life as a shop-sweeper, made such
good use of his opportunities that, by
the time he wns thirty, he was a
pnrtner in the Marshall Field store
in Chicago—a store which has earned
joint fortunes for its owners amoiini-
ing to over $500,000,000. Mr. Selfridge had retired from busine-s,
when, growing tired of a life of idleness, he turned his eyes towards
London and ultimately founded the
huge business in Oxford street.
Wonderlul Location.
That he iives in the midst of Scotland, England and Ireland is the way
his location in Guelph. Ont.. is described by Mr. John Taylor, presi-
dent ol th» Tiiylnr-Forbos Co.
The explanation is simple, but interesting.
Many ol tbe strc»ts ol Ihe Royal
City ure named nfter citie. in the
O'.d Land, nnd the street* which
bound three sides of Mr Taylors re-
ddence are called Glasgow, Cambridge and Cork.
HOUSEKEEPING AT 99 YEARS.
Remarkable Old Irish Couple Live In
Neepawa, Man.
Nearly a hundred years old, blind
and nearly deaf, yet able to do all
thc housework lor her husband and
hL'rseli. including the baking—such u
the record ol one who, if nut the old-.
•>st woman in Canada or the United
States, is certainly the oldest woman
able to du such work under sueh cir
cumstanees. says George K. Helton
*n The Cuurier. The baking part of
her work the writer can testily to, loi
when he called the old lady lind her
hands in the dough, and beiore he
left she had placed it under the stove
to "raise" ns snme oi us have seen onr
Brandmoihers do. That she was blind
wa easil;' proven by 11 simple test;
her eyes also show in ilie photo
taken, and she ie so deal tii.it
she is nnt aware that a strnnecr wns
in tlie room till her husband tnld her.
then by sitting close and speaking
loudly she wus made to henr. and her
talk was une oi unusual interest, even
fo such circumstances as those narrated.
Mrs. William Grimsby nl Neepawa.
Manitoba, is in her 99th year; her
husband is ten years yuunger; together ihey form 11 pair thut would arouse
the interest of nny visitor. Like many
ol the old people for whom Canada
is noted, ttiey are Irish.
Mr. Grimsby was born in Ireland 89
years ago this summer; he crossed the
ocean at twelve with un aunt who
died on the trip, and he arrived in
Canada 1.! mc, linding a brother and
ither relatives near Kingston, Ont.
\fter reaching manhood he was a
sailor fur (Uteen years, both on the
'Jrent Lukes and ocean-going vessels
from Quebec. Meeting Sarah June
Gallagher he married her and settled
down on a lurm near Perth, Ont.,
given her by her brother, and there
they lived Inr over thirty years. When
iver seventy he left for Manitoba and
■settled a. a pioneer near Estevan.
but after three years removed to an-
ither lurm near Neepawa, successful
ly operating it for twelve years. Last
.ugust he buil. a small house in Neepawa town and retired—but now has
boughl ine house-moving outfit ol
the place, and intends to enter that
irduuus line of work next season.
To talk to Mrs. Grimsby seems al-
1. it weird. She wu born beiore the
battle of Waterloo; eame to Canadn
as a child—and here the reader will
pardon a rather personal touch in this
narrative, for she casually mentioned
that her first teacher in Canadr. was
Charles Norris Manly, and she wsb de.
lighted to hear that this man was the
great-grandfather ol her interviewer,
she further gave good evidence that
her uge was authentic, for she said
tliat John Grange Manly, son ol Chas
Manly, was teacher In the sehool at
"Oliver's Ferry," u she called
Smith's Falls, and was a year or so
younger than she wu. By looking up
family records it was found that Kev.
John Grange Manly died in Toronto
two years ago at the age of ninety-
live. Apparently there were many
leng-lived people amongst the settlers
near Perth, for in Rowland's cemetery, where the Bellamy Road forks
toward Almonte, is buried C'hurle.-
Norris Manly, aged ninety-nine, and
near his grave may also be noted
"John Hath, aged ninety-seven."
"Mrs. James Smith, aged one hundred years and three months." "John
Marshall, aged one hundred and three
years," and "Mrs. John Marshall,
aged ninety-eight."
Mrs. Grimsby, though blind and
deaf, has all mental faculties us bright
as ever, and seems likely lo live iar
beyond tlie century mark. As a
proof of her physical condition—she
fell two years ago and broke her
arm, and, though it was considered
impossible at her age, tbe bone knit
anj joined perfectly; after three
months in a plaster cast it enme out
healed and Ut tor use, though "weaker than the other arm lor a heavy
lilt," she says. She has borne two
children, Mrs. Thomas Jenkins, ol
Selkirk, and Mrs. Robert Beat, ol
Neepawa, and though she married
somewhat lute in lif t tbese daughters
are themselves middle-aged women
now. Whether it be true or not that
the race is growing weaker, ns some
affirm, it is certainly true that tew of
of i..e present generation will see such
a hearty old uge as these two old
people enjoy—und none will do their
own housework at sueh au uge as
Mrs. Grimsby dues.

Menace ot the Salmon.
Jt there is one danger that threatens lhe Salmon lishiug industry ol
Britisli Columbia, the same danger
that threatens always when game nr
fish ure ton easily luken, and that is,
that with so many clever devices fnr
capturing the s.-lmon before they
en'er tie rivers, not enough may
r.-ach the spawning grounds to keep
up the supply. Restrictive legislation
has been attempted, but hue not prnv-
en very successful. To lessen the
dunger the Canadian authorities have
established several fish hiitcheriee.
The first was built at Bon Accord nn
the Fraser River in 1884, and since
lh:n nine others have been established, and the Dominion Fisheries Commission has recommended the establishment nf several more.
It would seem that it would not
be necessary fnr a large number ol
fish to reuohj the spawnirg grounds,
lor it is estimated that each female
salmon C 'posits not less than 35.000
eggs, so that, if all were hatched, and
eame to maturity, no river would be
large enough to hold them. But it is
likely that not more than lour per
cent, are even hatched, and of these
a large number come to grief before
th. ir four years of life are over, and
they return to perform their function in the nernetuation ol tbe race.

Little Things.
In a small building wblcb wu once)
Peter tbe Great's workshop In Holland la tbe Inscription. "Nothing la Too
Little For tbe Attention of a Great
Man."
It Is curious to note that many
things whicb bave turned out most
useful for man owe their beginnings to
some silgbt tcrldent For Instance,
tbe telescope we owe to some children
of a spectacle maker placing two or,
more pairs of spectacles before each
otber and looking through them tt tbe
distant sky. Tbeir Idea was followed
up by older beads. Pendulum clocks
were Invented after Galilei stood observing tbe lamp ln a church swinging to and fro. Gunpowder was dis-'
covered from the falling of a tpark
on some materials mixed In a mortar.
The great results of a steam engine
may all be traced to the boy wbo ut
watching the ateam whicb came from
tbe nose of 0 teukettle. Electricity
was discovered by a person observing
tbat a piece of rubbed gluss attracted
small bits of paper.
The art of printing took Its origin
from some rude Impressions taken for
tbe amusement of children from letters carved on tbe bark of a beech
tree.
The lawa of gravitation were discovered by tbe falling of an apple to tbe
ground.       	
"Go It, bad."
Rev. .lease Gibson, the traveling =ee-
retnry of the British and For-ign
Bible Society, delights to tell this good
story on h'liisel. He is a member nl
Jarvis Street Baptist Church, and occasionally takes one of his yi ung
hopefuls with him to prnyer-meeting.
On ono of these momentous occasions,
tlie lad noticed that his father was
seeking a chance to get to his leet
and mnke a contribution to the devotions of the evening, but each time
some one else got the floor ahead el
him. Sii.Ui.iily there was a lull, and
quick as a flash the boy leaned over,
poked hia sirr***in the ribs, and in a
stage whisper that could be heard all
over that side ol the room, snid: "Go
it. dnd! Now's your chance!" Needless to sny. it wns up to Mr. Gibson,
and he had to mnke his little speech.
Peterson's Csresr.
Hon. William Paterson, Mr. Fielding's colleague in the reciprocity
negotiations, the proprietor ol an
extensive and thriving industry, hu
had an interesting business career.
Born in IKtfl, he was hut ten years
old when his parents were both carried off by cholera. He was adopted
by Rev. Dr. Ferrier, a Presbyterian
minister, and early entered the house
of Ignatius Cockshutt, Itrantford.
When 24 years old he went into
business for himself, u one ol the
founders ol the enterprise which he
now owns. In his bakery and confectionery business he was flrst In
