Items of Interest to Horticulturists and Agriculturists
The regular semi-annual meeting
of tbe directors of the Grand Forks
Agricultural association will be
held in the city ball on Mon
day evening, June 5. All members
are requested to attend.
There bave been frequent references in horticultural literature during the past two or three years
ubout ever-bearing strawberries, but
nothing that seemed to give much
promise that they would amount to
anything. However, the recent experience of a Pulaski, N. Y., grower
witb tbe new variety seems to indi
cate that it is something more than
a curiosity. He got three pickings of
berries after August 15 last, wbich
averaged more tban 600 quarts to
the acre and brought bim 25 oents
per quart. Tbe fall or ever-bearing
strawberry, as it is known, differs
from the common varieties in the
one respect that it blooms continuously from June until November.
One crop is matured at tbe usual
time in June, and the second cop
may he secured by pinching off all
blossoms about three weeks before
it is desired to have the fruit ripen
when all of tbe strength of the vines
is diverted to the balf-grown fruit
Those who have tasted the fall matured fruit state that it haB fully as
fine a flavor as the June product.
Patent stump pullers operated by
steam have been invented,and many
of them are now being used to clear
the cut-over pine lands in northern
Michigan and Wisconsin. The derrick hoist principle is employed in
tbem, and it is said tney will pull
and pile from two tn three acres of
stumps in a day. Many thousands
of acres of thia land are rich and
fertile, well suited to general farm
ing, fruit growing, etc., and the new
puller is found to be an improvement over the tedious and expensive
methods of clearing land which
have prevailed in the past.
The man who is wise will not only
take the precaution of driving a team
whicb he thinks of purchasing foi
work on the farm, but will insist on
the privilege of working them a little
hefore closing the deal. If tbe owner
of the team objects to this arrangement pass them up, for the team
may be sound as a dollar, but possess some peculiarty or meanness of
disposition whicb would render
them practically worthless as r. work
team. Neither ability to travel nor
good looks cut much figure when a
fallow is dead anxious to rush his
spring' plowing and has to spend
half his time trying to coax a balky
horse to work. And it is certainly
exhaustive of a man's store of piety
and patience.

Giovanni Mastrella, accused of
having assaulted Dominica Sersina
with a razor at Fife on Empire day,
was apprehended by the county
sheriff near Marcus on Tuesday and
banded over to Provincial Constable
Ritchie, who brought bim to this
city. At the preliminary hearing
Wednesday morning, the case was
remanded until Sersina's recovery
has advanced sufficiently to permit

now in the hospital in this city, and
his wounds are rapidly healing.
An auto party comprising Chas.
Howse, Walter Murray, Chas. Rus-

Greenwood to this city, via Phoenix,
in a little over an hour.
Jay P. Graves, general manager
of tbe Granby Consolidated, left
Spokane last Saturday for New
York, and George W. Wooster, of
this city, treasurer and one of the
directors of the company, departed
for the same destination the flrst of
the week. A directors' meeting will
shortly be held in New York to consider reports of tbe company's min
ing and mettalurgical engineers, and
of Benjamin H. Lawrence, of new
York, before deciding whether to
proceed with the purchase of the
Hidden creek copper property on

Gus Parker, who made the 'first
auto trip to Christina lake in his
runabout a few years ago, attempted
tn navigate the snme machine to
Franklin camp on Wednesday afternoon, but after reaching half way to
the smelter he had to turn the car
around and let it slide back to tbe
garage. The failure was not dm to
any defects in the car, however.
During the late rains Mr. Parker
left his gasoline can in a place where
it filled wilh rainwater, and unawares he poured this into the tank
of the machine. The machine naturally refused to work on so slim a
diet. Mr. Parker reduced his weight
twenty-five pounds by the sweating
process before he found out why the
car refused to go.

Egan looked relieved, but he said
"You are quite right to hi reticent," Venner said, "but ns I remarked before, I think I can help you in
this business.    You   hoped   to   lay
hands on tlie mun you wanted    in
this hotel."
"Oh, 1 quite see you know something," Egan replied. "As a matter
ot fact we are a long way at present
from being in a position to lay hands
on our man witli a reasonable hope
of convicting him. There will be a
great deal oi watching to do flrst, and
a lot of delicate detective work. That
is the worst of these confounded news-
papers. How that paragraph got into the Herald I don't know, but it
is going to cause Grady and myself a
great deal of trouble. To be quite
candid, we did expect to find our man
here, but when he had vanished as
he did, just before our arrival, I knew
at once that somebody must have
been giving him information "
"Do I know the name of the man?
Venner asked.
"I' you don't, I certainly can't tell
you," Egan said. "One has to bo
cautious, even with so discreet a gentleman as yourself."
"Thats very well," Venner snid.
"But it so happens that I am just as
much interested in this individual as
yourself. Now let me describe him
He is short and stout, between fifty
and sixty years of age, has beady
black eyes, and a little hooked nose
like a parrot. Also he has an enormous bald head, and his coloring is
strongly like that oi a yellow tomato.

interest in the case."
"Oh, you're not mistaken," Egan
said. "That is our man right enough.
But tell me. do you happen to know
what his particular line is just it

propose to stay at the Empire Hotel

Egan replied that it nil depended
upon circumstances. They were in
no way pressed for time, nnd -as they
were there on Stnte business they
were not limited ns to expenses. With
a remark to the effect that they might
meet again later on in the evening.
Venner went on his way and stood
waiting for Vera nt the foot of the
stairs. She came down presently and
they entered a enh together.
"We won't go to a theatre at all.'
Venner said. "We will try one of
the music halls, and we shall be able
to talk better there, and if we have a
box we shall be quite seoure from observation."
"It is all the same to me." Vera
smiled. "1 enre very little where we
go so long ns we ure together. How
strange it is Hint you should hnve
turned up in this extraordinary way."
"There is nothing strange about it

As to the performance, she bail been

to heed what was taking place upon

"Come along," Venner said. "It
has been a delightful time, but all
too brief. I am going to put you in
a cab and send you back to the hotel

The House Next Door.
Venner lost no time in reaching the
rooms of his friend Gurdon and wns
fortunnte enough to find him in. He
wns hard at work on some literary
matter, but he pushed his manuscript
aside as Venner came excitedly into
the room.
"Well, whnt is it?" he asked. "Anything fresh? But your face answers
tliat. question. Have you found
"No, I haven't," Venner said; "but
he seems to have been discovered. I
bought this paper just now in Piccadilly, but I have not been able to look
at it yet. It is stated here that the
mystery has been solved."
"Hand it over," Gurdon cried excitedly. "Let"s se« if we can find it.
Ah! here we nre. The Press Association has just received a letter which
appears to have come from Mr. Bates
himself. He says he is very much
annoyed at all this fuss and bother
in the papers, about his «o-cnlied Hd-
napping. He goes on to say that he
was called to the Continent *by pr»ss-
ing business, and that he had not
even time to tell his servants he was
going, as it was imperatively necessary that he shoiill catch tlie mil-
night boat to Dieppe. The correspondent says that Mr. Bates has been
interviewed by a foreign journalist,
who is absolutely certain as to his
identity. Moreover, an official has
called at Mr. Bates' residence and
found thnt his servants hnve hnd n
letter from him instructing them
to join him nt one?, ns he has let his
house furnished for the next two
months. Well, my dear man, that
seems to be very satisfactory, nnd
effectually disposes of the idea that
Mr. Bates has been mysteriously kid'
napped. I am rather sorry for this
in a way because it upsets all our
theories and makes it necessary to
begin our task all over again."
"I don't believe a word of it," Venner said. "I believe it's a gigant'.c
bluff. I wns coming to see you tonight in any case, but after buying
that paper I came on here post haste.
Now that story of the Press Association strikes mc ns being decidedly
thin. Here is n man living comfort-
ably nt home who suddenly disappears in a most mysterious manner,
and nothing is heard of him for somo
time. Directly the public begin t«
regnrd it ns n most fnscinnting mys
tery and tho miscreants realized what
a storm they were likely to stir up,
the man himself writes and says that
it is all a mistake. Now, if he had
come baek and shown himself, it
would have been quite another matter. Instead of doing that, he writes
n letter from nbroad, or sends a telegram or something of that kind, saying that he has been called away on
urgent business. That might pass
easily enough, but mark whnt follows.
He writes to his servants asking them
to join him at once in some foreign
town because he bas let his house for
two months, nnd the new tenant is
to get in without delay. Did ever
anybody hear anything so preposterous? .lust ns if a man would let i
house in that brenkneck fnshion without giving the servants due warning.
The thing is not to be thought of."
"Then you think the servants have
been lured away on a fools' errand?'*
Gurdon asked. "You don't think there
is anybody in the house?"
"O, yes I do," Venner said drily.
"I have a very strong opinion that
there are people in the house, and I
also have a pretty shrewd ld"a as to
who they are. It happens, also, that
I am in a position to test my theory
without delay."
"How do you propose to do thnt?"
Gurdon asked.
"Quite ensily. After I left you this
afternoon I went back to the igent
and succeeded in obtaining possession of the keys of the empty house
in Portsmouth Square. My excuse
was that I wanted to go into detail
and to take measurements nnd the
like. I need not remind you thnt
Bntes' house is next door to the empty one. In fact, there is no question
thnt both houses belong to the snme
person. You will remember, nlso, the
mysterious wny in which thnt furniture vanished from the scene of your
"Oh, I remember thnt all right,"
Gurdon said grimly. "But all the
same I don't quite see what you are
driving nt."
"The thing is quite plnln. Thnt
furniture did not vanish through the
prosaic medium of a van, nor was it
carted tRrough thc front door from
one house to the other. The two
houses communicated in some way,
and it will be our business to find
the door. As I have the keys and
every legitimate excuse for being on
the premises, wc can proceed to make
our investigations without the slightest secrecy, and without thc least
fear of awkward questions being ask
ed.   Now do you follow me?"
"Oh, I follow you fast enough. I
suppose your game is to try and get
into the next house by means of- the
"You have hit it exactly," Venner
said. "That is precisely what I mean
to do. We shall find it necessary to
discover the identity of Mr. Bates'
"When are you going to make the
experiment?" Gurdon asked.
"We are going to make it now,"
Venner replied. "We will have a cab
as the Emgire Hotel, so that I can get
the keys. After that, the 'liing will
be quite easy. Come along, and thank
me for an exciting adventure. I shall
be greatly surprised if it is not even
more exciting than the Inst occasion.-'*
They were in the empty house at
last. The windows were closed and
shuttered, so that it was possible lo
use mntcheB in the various rooms
without attracting attention from tbe
outside. But search how they would,
for upwards of two hours, they could
find no trace whatever of a means of
communication between the two
houses.. The) tapped the walls and
sounded the skirtings, but so far villi-
out success. Venner paced the lb*>r
of the drawing-room moodily, raising his brains to discover a way out.
of the difficulty.
"It must be here somewhere," he
muttered. "I nm sure all. thot furniture was moved backwards and forwards through some door, and a wide
one nt thnt."
"Then it must be on the ground
floor," Gurdon remarked. "When
you come to think of it, some of that
furniture was so heavy and massiv,-
that it would not go through an ordinary doorway, neither could it have
been brought upstairs without the assistance of two or three men of great
personal strength. We shall have to
look for it in the hall; if we don't
find it there we shall have to give it
up as a bad job and try some otlier
"I am inclined to think you are
right," Venner said. "Let us go down
and see. At any rnte there is one
consolntion, if we fnil to-night wc
can come ngnin to-morrow."
But Gurdon did not nppenr to be
listening. He strode resolutely down
the stairs into the hall and stood
for some moments contemplating the
panels before him. The panels were
painted - white and were elaborately
ornamented with wreaths of flowers.
Then it seemed to Gurdon that two
pairs of panels, one above and one
below, had at one time taken the
formation of a doorway. He tapped
on one of the panels and the drumming of his fingers gave out a hollow
sound. Gordon tapped again on the
next parallel panel, but hardly any
sound at all came in response. He
looked  triumphantly  at Venner.
"I think we have got it at last,"
he said. "Do you happen to hnve
such a thing in your pocket as a
knife? Unless I am greatly mistaken
the decorations round these panels
come off like a bead. If you happen
to have a knife witli you we can soon
find out."

A Popular Ambassador.
Americans like Mr. Bryce, the
British Ambassador ii Washington,
who hns come in for some critici-m
on account of his attitude on the
question ot reciprocity between the
States and Canada, because there is
no "side" about him. A visitor called en him on** Sunday morning, and
Mr. Bryce met him in the hall and
begged him to "come this wny. where
we can talk undisturbed." He led
the way to the library, and the flrst
thing he did was to tnke out a well-
worn tobacco pouch nnd blackened
briar pipe, which he proceeded to fill
nnd smoke. Mr. Bryce, although a
diplomnt and bookworm, is fairly
"tough." He was the first Englishman to climb Mount Ararat, nnd hns
been president ol the Alpine Cluti.

in 1(45, and Prince Charlie took dinner in one of the rooms, when he paid
a hurried visit to Ardkinglas, in the
hope that the laird would join his
standard. An old tree still called
Prince Charlie, stands in the grounds
ol Ardkinglas House. Here the Prince
waited, tradition says, while a messenger went to the house, endeavoring to
obtain an audience of the laird.

The aeroplane is an airboot rather
than n flying machine. The only action of the bird that it imitates is the
bird's soaring, in nearly the same
sense in which'a boat floats or a tluck
swims. With the duck, howevt r, there
is one difference. It shares the balloon
principle, becnuse its body wil not
sink when it stands still, whereas the
aeroplane will (all unless it is constantly urged forward, The duck is
lighter thnn its bulk of water, as the
balloon is lighter than its own hulk
of air. To co'.l nn aerop'me a flying
machine is therefore exactly the so*ne
as to call a boat a swimming machine
(keeping in mind the swimnr.n? ol
the duck and neglecting tbut of fishes
and of human beings)

Cured by Lydia E. Pink-

Canlfton, Ont.—"I had been a (treat
sufferer for five years. One doctor
told me lt was ulcers of the uterus,
and another told me It was a tiliroid
tumor. Mo one
knows what I suffered. I would
always be worse
at certain periods,
and never was
regular, and the
fainswere terrible,
was very ill iu
bed, and the doctor
told me I would
have to have an
operation, and
that I might die
during tlie operation. I wrote to my
sister about it and she advised me to
take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound. Through personal i *e-
rlence I have found it the best medicine in the world for female troubles,
for it has cured me, and I did not have
to have the operation after all. The
Compound also helped me while passing through Change of Life."—Mrs.

only medicine for babies sold under
the guarantee of a government analyst to contain no opiate, narcotic
or other "soothing" stuff. Concerning them Mrs. Ernest Plamondon,
Ste. Julie Station, Que., writes: "It
is a pleasure for me to let you know
what your Baby's Own Tablets have
done for my children. My baby suffered terribly from constipation and
although we had a doctor there was
no change in his condition till I began to give him Baby's Own Tablets, but since then he is enjoying
good health." The Tablets are sold

Pimples,     Eruptions     and   "Spotty
At this season, scores of people-
girls and young women especially—
find their faces disfigured by pimples, dark spots, eruptions, etc. The
skin needs attention—needs renovating after the trying time it has passed
through during the winter.
Just think what it has gone
through! You have been out in the
rain and sleet and snow. You have
been at one moment perspiring from
skating or some other exertion. Then
you have stood to "cool off." You
have spent hours of the day indoors
at a temperature equal to summer
heat. Then you have covered up
your skin—except your face—and
gone out into a temperature away
below zero I....No wonder that, with
all these changes, the skin of the
face and neck shows signs of needing attention.
Zam-Buk and Zam-Buk Soap are
the remedies. Smear Zam-Buk lightly
over the Boots, the eruptions, the
sallow patches, at night, and wash
with Zam-Buk Soap (only 25c per
tablet) each day. Then notice how
quickly your appearance improves.
As the rich, refined herbal essences
sink deep into the tissue, the hard,
scurfy-like potteries are removed,
Better color results. The cells of the
skin become transparent. The blood
beneath is able to impart its proper
coloring to the tissue, and the delicate bloom of health replaces the
sallowness and pallor of disease.
Zam-Buk is also a sure cure for
skin injuries and diseases. Eczema,
ulcers, ringworm, yield to its use.
For cuts, burns, bruises, children's
rashes, etc., it is unequalled, and for
piles. Mothers will find Zam-Buk
Soap best for baby's bath! All druggists and stores at 50c. box for Zam-
Buk and 25c. tablet (or 3 for 70c.)
for the soap. If you have any difficulty in obtaining, order from Zam-
Buk Co., Toronto, and send price.

Kidney Pills by the fact that they
completely cured her little girl of
kidney disease, Dame Jos. Bouchard
of this village, is satisfied she has at
last found permanent relief from the
heart trouble and backache that have
troubled her for so long.
"Yes," Dame Bouchard says, in
an interview, "I am happy to tell
you Dodd's Kidney Pills have made
me well. They completely cured my
little girl, twelve years old, of kidney disease so I made up my mind
to try them for my backache and
heart trouble. I have taken twelve
boxes and feel sure that they will
completely cure me."
Dodd's Kidney Pills are doing a
great work in this neighborhood.
They have yet to find a case of kidney disease they cannot cure. Whether the disease takes the form of
Backache, Lumbago, Rheumatism,
Urinary Trouble or Bright's Disease
it is all the same to Dodd's Kidney
Pills.   They always cure it.   ,.

would bo Had to toll him, wouldn't youf And It wouldn't take you
long, either, would It? And, aa a matter of fact, you'd And as much
pleasure telling him aa ho would In listening—Isn't that right?
First you would take him ovor to vltw tho olio or barn foundation. Then you would start to describe It—Its dimensions—ths
kind of aggregate used—tho proportions of cement used—number
of men employed—number of hours' working time required-
method of mixing—kind of forms used—method of reinforcing, It
any—and finally, what tho Job cost. So that by tho time you finished, neighbor Wilson would have a pretty accurate Idea of how to
go about building tho particular piece of work which you described.
Now couldn't you do tho same for us, with this difference—
that you stand a good chance ot getting well paid for your time?
In Prise "D" ot our contest, open to tho farmers of Canada, wo
offer J ISMS to tho farmer la each Provinco who will furnish us
with tho bost and most complete description of how any particular

Frost Danger Points
It is commonly believed that the
danger point for fruit tuds is 32 degrees F., or the point at which frost
forms and water freezes. This, however, is n3t correct, as the danger
point to dsfferent kinds of fruit is
variable, both with the kind of fruit
and stage of development of the flow
er. It will also vary with the conditions of the soil, as to whether it is
wet or dry, warm or cold.
The Missouri agricultural station
has found thut dormant peach buds
can stand % temperature uf 8 to 9 degrees below zezo with no injury.
When the buds are appreciably swollen, zero weather is the danger point.
When the buds are showing pink they
can stand 16 degrees below zero.
When the buds are almost open 25
degrees is the danget point. When
they are newly opened 26 degrees
would be the point of danger. When
the petals begin to fall 28 degrees
above zero is cold enough to cause uneasiness. When the petals are off
they can stand 30 degrees above zero.
When the "chucks" (calyx tubes) are
beginning to fall off, 32 degrees above
zero is the danger point.
The United States department of
agriculture makes this statement that
the danger point for apples when they
are showing pink is 20 degrees above
zero; in full bloom, 26 degrees above
zero; pears showing pink, 20 above
zero; peaches showing pink' 23 above
zero; in full bloom, 28 ahove zero.
Prof. P. J. O'Gara states that in
southern Oregon the temperature at
which the apricot is injured when in
the bud is 28 above zero, and at 30
degrees when in the blossom; cherries
are injured at 29 degrees just before
the blossom opens, and plums are injured at 30 degrees above zero when
the flowers begin to show white. —

Tree Which Supplies Rain
One of tbe botanical curiosities of
Peru, which offers a protection against
drought, is the rain-tree. This tree,
which grown to large proportions, is
supplied with large leaves which have
the property of condensing the moisture of the atmosphere and precipitat
ing it in the form of rain! When the
riveis are at their lowest in the dry
season, and the heat is intense, the
condensing capacity of this tree is apparently at its highest, the water fall
ing from the leaves and oozing from
the trunk in a steady, continuous
stream, flowing over the immediately
surrounding ground, and nourishing
the parched soil This water can be
collected and carried by ditches to
distant parts for irrigation purposes.
It is stated that a single tree will
yield on an average nine gallons of
water per day. It is computed that
if a plot of ground a kilometre square
is planted with ten thousand trees, a
daily yield of nearly thirty thousand
gallons of water available for irrigation, with due allowance for evaporation, can lie secured. The rain-tree
appears to be indifferent as to the soil
in which it grows, can withstand extreme climatic fluctuations, needs hut
little care iu its cultivation, and grows
rapidly. It would seem that under
these circumstances nature has provided a simple anil effective means of
reclaiming the desert, and that its
widespread culture will be amply repaid, inasmuch as there are vast
tracts of country in all the five continents which at present have no economic value owing to absence of water
supplies for nourishing the soil, which
might be easily secured by systematic
culture of this tree.
Commenting on the insignificant
sum subscribed for the Georges' fund,

Desperate Efforts, Disheartening
Failures and Final Success.
Eczema Is a ilcln affliction to whkh men
snd women alike are mbject, from the Drat
to the last day of their existence. It may
occur as a single tiny spot, appearing and
disappearing with each change ln general
health or present only at certain seasons;
at the other extreme, the whole body may
be Involved In a torturing eruption. The
latter condition may gradually arise through
the neglect or improper treatment of lesser
troubles or an apparently healthy akin may,
in a single day, become a mass of eczema.
Dut whatever the form of the affection, the
distressing Itching, burning, scaling and
crusting, the serious disfigurement and the
constant dread that the eczema will become
chronic, make a speedy cure the aim of every
sufferer. Unfortunately, euch a cure la not
always readily obtained. The most skilled
physician Is often at a lost and even hospitals
are forced to discharge the patient as Incurable. Then a wide variety of remedies are
resorted to, many, perfectly harmless and
equally ineffective," others so offensive to
every sense that, were It not for the relief
they are supposed to afford, no person of
refinement would tolerate them for an Instant.
To such sufferers, discouraged by repeated
failures of even these heroic methods, the
Instant relief afforded by the first bath with
Cuticura Soap and gentle application of
Cuticura Ointment Is almost Incredible. They
atop the Itching and burning at once, make
sleep possible and, In most cases, point to
a speedy cure. So pure and iweet are Cuticura
Soap and Ointment and so free from every
substance of a disagreeable or harmful nature
that they can be used without hesitation on
the youngest Infant or tenderest skin. Besides, they are most economical, a single set
being often sufficient for the treatment of
even the severest cases.
In proof of the efficacy of the Cuticura
Remedies It will be enough to quote here a
single letter, from Mrs. Edward Nennlng,
11 Lansing Block, Watertown, N.Y.: "Four
years ago I suffered with a terrible eczema,
being a mass of sores from head to feet and
for six months confined to my bed. During
that time I suffered continual torture from
itching and burning. After being given up
by my doctor, I wu advised to try Cuticura.
After the flrst bath with Cuticura Boap and
application of Cuticura Ointment I enjoyed
the flrst good sleep during my entire illness.
I also used Cuticura Resolvent and tha treatment waa continued for three weeks. At the
end of that time X wu entirely cured and
have felt no HI effects since. I would advta
any person suffering from any form of skin
trouble to try the Cuticura Remedka, u I
know what they did for me." 1*

Peculiar Little Ways of Some Colonial
I- tlie early days in the colonies
tlie vagaries of the i.V. were a source
of constant amusement, and the writer of this : rticle has. collected a few
stories during his recent travels in
Australia and New Zealand which may
be of interest to readers.
"1 reckon that'll make him sweat"
is certainly'an original, ii nut a refined, observation from a J.P., after
passing sentence. A well-known J.P.
in a New South Wales town performs
his duties in an airy, conversational
fashion. He sentenced a prisoner to
six months, and added cheerfully,' "1
reckon that'll make him sweat."
On another occasion a milkman,
whom tiie J.r*. regarded with disfavor,
was a witness in a case, and when lie
lefl the court the judicial functionary
skipped nimbly off the bench and ran
ti tne door after him. "I say," h*
bawled ut the retreating cowkoeper.
"v.e don't want any of your stinking
milk here!" ,
The same J.P. once directed a jury
to find that the deceased comniitteti
"self-suicide," and this time even the
local paper begun to make remarks.
So next day his worship explained
things from the bench. "I Wouldn't
have-minded if I'd said it," he snorted indignantly, "but I didn't. What 1
said wus the deceased committed suicide himself.   And so hi did!"
Even at social gatherings one J.P.
did not fail to distinguish himself.
At an up-country concert, in the Tara
naki District of New Zealand, a1
which tin chiiirma.i was a local J.P.
the lollowing startling announcement
wi.s made from the chair: "Ladies and
gentlemen, the next hitem on the
jjiogrmn is a uuet oy Mr. Hanurews.'
The latter gentleman approached the
chairman with "I can't perform &
duet by myself. If I played by myself, that would be a solo. Miss Smith
and I will play the duet.'' The chuir
man, rising again, with due gravity,
said: "Ladies and gentlemen, Mr.
Handrews ses 'e's unable to perform
a duet by 'imsolf, but Miss Smith an.*
'e will play a solo:"
It is even now a recognized f.ict
thnt neither intellectual capacity, 1101
education, knowledge of law, etc.. enters into the consideration ot qualifies
tions for the position of a Justice 01
the Pence, in comparison with the
claims that may huve been establish
•?d by services rendered in connection
with electioneering to candidates ot
the right color in the judgment of the
Government of the duy; but it is interesting to note that in New Zealand
the line wns recently drawn witli regard to a recipient of charitable aid.
tt is not surprising, in the circum-
■tancs to f id that applications of
Ihe following description are occasionally received hy members ol the
Upper House:
"Sir,—Vv hat about. J.P. you maid
promiss about? i see E. Solomons is

him and Shaw. Poor men don't get

others got on. i won't vote for you no
more, and when i won't nobody in our
street will  nither.—Your respectfly."
Society "Wasters."
A curious coincidence links th°
tragedy of Lord Leitrim's brother,
who, after disappearing four years
ago. is reported to have been found
buried in a grnve in the Isle of
Wight, and the fact that "Miss El-
laine Cecil," who is appearing in
"Tho Girl in thc Train" at the Vnu-
deville, is no less a person than the
Hon. Helen Cecil Douglas Scott-
Montagu, the elder daughter of Lord
Montagu of Beaulieu. Lord Leitrim's
brother disappeared to earn his own
living, because he found society
"artificial and unreal." To quote hi"
own words further, "I finally decided
that.if I stuck to London drawing-
rooms my life would ferment into
mere froth like those ol the nobility
nround me." And Miss "Cecil" is
equally strong in her condemnation
of London society. "What sort of
people," she sny?, "gravitate towards
»o-called society? Wasters. I may
he young, but I know what I like,

Do Not Use Harsh Purgatives
••-A Tonic is AU You
Not exactly sick—but not feeling
quite well. That's thc way most
people feel in the spring. Easily
tired, appetite fickle, sometimes
headaches and a feeling of depression. Pimples or eruptions may appear on thc skin, or there mny be
twinges of rheumatism or neuralgia
Any of these indicate that the Mood
is out of order; that the indoor life
of winter hns left its mark upon you
and may easily develop into more
serious trouble.
Don't dose yourself with purgn-
tives ns so many people do in tlie
hope thnt you can put your blood
right. Purgatives gallop through the
system and weaken instead of giving
strength. Any doctor will tell you
this is true. What you need in the
spring is a tonic that will make new
blood and build up the nerves. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills is the only medicine that can do this speedily, snfely
and surely. Every dose of this medicine helps to make new blood, which
clears the skin, strengthens the appetite, nnd makes tired, depressed men,
women and children bright, active
an I strong. Mr. B. Martin, Deux
Rivieres, Que., says: "About a yenr
ago I was all run down. I was pale,
weak, and hnd hut little appetite. I
also suffered from a severe pain in
the back, and though I tried several
medicines nothing helped me until I
began the use of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and these soon fully restored
my health. I can strongly recommend these pills to every weak person."

The interest in the general election
in the British Isles gave way to the
sensation caused by the evidence given by Mr. Claude Sawyer in the Wara-
tah case. Mr. John Dickinson, who
conducted the Board of Trade inquiry
into the mysterious disappearance of
this liner between Durban and Cape
Town last June, said at the close, "I
heartily congratulate you, Mr. Sawyer, on being alive and being here to
give evidence." Mr. Sawyer told that
three or four days before the ill-iated
vessel reached Durban, he had "a
dream, which waa most unusual." He
had booked a first-class passage from
Sydney to Cape Town by tbe Wara-
tah, and he seems to have felt anxiety, before leaving Australian waters.
Three times he had a dreaming vision
of a man in a peculiar dress, who waa
holding in his right hand a bloody
sword. "The second time it came, I
thought, 'I will know it again"; and
the third time I looked at it so intently that I could almost design it,
swvrd and all, even now. Next day I
mentioned the dream to a gentleman,
and he said, 'It's warning.' Then 1
began to think why I should be warned, and I was anxious to leave the
ship."   He left it at Durban.
Perhaps the strangest story of a
dream at sea is tliat told by George
Burrow in the opening pages of "Tha
Bible in Spain. "Uwas bound for
Lisbon. We passed Cape Finisterre,
and, standing farther out to sea,
speedily lost sight of land. On tha
morning ol the 11th the sea was very
rough, and a remarkable circumstance
occurred. I was on the forecastle,
discoursing with two of the sailors.
One of them, who had but just left
his hammock, said: 'I have had a
strange dream, which I do not much
.ike, for,' continued he, pointing to
the mast, 'I dreamt that I fell into
the sea from the cross-trees' He wa»
heard to say this by several of the
crew besides myself
A moment later the captain of the
vessel, perceiving that the squall was
Increasing, ordered the top-sails to
be taken in, whereupon this maii.
with several others, instantly ran
aloft; the yard was in the act of being hauled down, when a sudden
eust cf wind whirled it round with
violence, and a man was struck down
from the cross-tr^es into the sea,
which was working like yeast be'.ow.
In a short time he emerged. 1 saw
his hend on the crest of a billow, uml
Instantly reergnized in tht unforuinte

before had related his dream. I shall

May Knight Women.
In olden dnys they were not so
chary of recognizing feminine services. Thc abbesses of great nunneries used to bd "knighted" and even
now there is a charming y.ung
French woman, who, though, unmarried, is n countess in her own light
by reason of being tlie Clinnoines.-e

Aro In Need.
On the appeal of the Mayor of Bolton, England, for funds in the recent
Pretoria Mine disaster no less than
$350,000 was subscribed in a weekl
That alone is enough to show that
John Bull is a generous soul.
Che first time lhat he publicly helped thc miners was in 1878, when nearly $150,000 was raised on behalf of
the sufferers from a mine explosicn
in Wales. Since then every colliery
disaster has found the British public
eager to aid the widows and children
left behind.
The Britsher is as generous to his
fellow-beings abroad as he is to those
at home. When the Seine rose and
caused such widespread damage a
year ago the British public, through
the medium of a Mansion House fund,
sent over nearly $350,000 for the help
of their continental neighbors.
Strange to say, the first Mansion
House fund was inaugurated to relieve Paris. This was for the relief
of the sufferers in the siege by the
Germans in 1871. Over $600,000 was
collected and sent to Paris, partly in
money and partly in clothing, food,
and other necessaries. The Parisians
did not want money so much as food,
for money was fairly plentiful, and
John Bull responded to the appeals
of the starving by sending over sixty-
eight tons a day or two uftef the
siege was raised. Since that first fund
the Mansion House alone has received
nearly $30,000,000 out of the pockets of
the generous Anglo-Saxon.
When the terrible earthquake at
Messina startled the world with its
dramatic suddenness and its consequent misery Great Britain was the
foreign country that contributed most
to the relief of the refugees. Over
$000,000 was rapidly collected and
despatched to Italy, Germany coming
next with $400,000, and France with
$300,000. Newspapers all over the
country opened their columns for the
receipt of money from their readers,
and the appeal thus made was not in
In 1878 the Mansion House opened
a fund for the great Indian famine.
In response to the appeal of the Lord
Mayor" the huge sum of $3,450,000 was
extracted from the pockets of the nation. In 1897 another fund was organized to aid the Hindus, over half
a million pounds being sent to India,
Altogether England hus sent $10,000,
000 in one way and another to relieve our fellow-subjects in .India,
Such figures are a splendid tribute to
the generosity ol the British public.
During the Boer War, however, Bn
tain really rc;t to the occasion and
showed what she was capable of iu
emergencies. The Mansion House left
all its glorious records far behind
when it raised over $5,600,000 for the
Transvaal war fund. In addition to
this $850,000 was given to the fund for
the Transvaal refugees and $585,000
for the C.I.V.'s. That wus the Mansion House alone, and when it is recalled that there were three other
funds of a similar kind in existence
at that time one is astonished at the
capacity of John Bull's pockets. Altogether nearly $_M.O0O,O0O was subscribed during the days of the war.
Britain paid generously for the magnificent help that her soldiers and sail-
I ors gave her.
I The greatest individual sum ever
i given to a fund, apart from the permanent cbnritable organizations, was
the $125,000 given by Sir Thomas Lip-
ton to the Poorest of the Poor Loudon
Jubilee Dinner Fund in 1897.
Birds For tht Table.
Game Warden A. Bryan Williams,
British Columbia, has become an ornithologist, specializing in prairie
chicken, pheasants and partridge. It
seems that these table birds have been
falling behind the salmon. B. C. men
can both shoot and fish. Warden Williams recently distributed a flock ol
1,500 pheasants throughout the lower
mainland and Vancouver Island.
These birds have helped remarkably
in replenishing the stock. The experiment has been repeated in the ease
of prairie chicken. The B. C. bird
which trips in the Okanagan Valley,
has been mingled with some ol its relatives from Saskatchewan. They
have got along beautifully  together.

He came to Canada in 1883 and for
six years engaged in fruit farming
in the Niagara Peninsula, afterwards
removing to British Columbia, where
he is at present engaged in that industry on an extensive scale. In a
Conservative administration, Mr. Burrell's claims ior preferment would be
hard to ignore, and it is doubtful if
they would be overlooked. And since
the famous crossing of swords with
Sir Wilfrid Laurier on the opening
day of this Parliament, the Premier
has entertained a profound respect
for the little man from Grand Forks,
for after all the Liberal chieftain
dearly loves a fighter.
Speaking of Englishmen, it may
surprise many to know that several
of the prominent members of Parliament hailed originally from the light
little island. There is Ralph Smith,
the white-haired philosopher from
Nanaimo, who deserted the practice
of. medicine in Newcastle-on-Tyns
only a lew years ago to take up farming life in Alberta, and who is the
only supporter of the Liberal party
who dares stand up in his place in
Parliament and declare that absolute
free trade is the inevitable destiny of
Canada. Arthur Cyril Boyce, the clever little lawyer from Sault Ste. Marie,
who is one of Mr. Pugsley's "bete
noira" and who first saw the light ol
day in a Yorkshire vicarage. Richard
Stuart Lake, brother of Sir Percy
Lake, who left his Lancashire home to
take up land in Saskatchewan, and
is one of the stalwarts of the Opposition from the West. Then lost, but
not least, comes Edward Arthur Lancaster, who sits for Lincoln, and was
born within the sound of Bow Bells.
When Mr. Lancaster is not servinj
the public from a level crossing point
of view, he is plotting the destruction of the Senate. One of his ancestors must hove been Guy Fawkes, for
Mr. Lancaster hns a bomb which he
is about to explode, which, if the
fuse catches fire and Sir Wilfrid Laurier does not extinguish it, wi'.l resu'.t
in the disappearance of the Upper
Chamber. Of the various nationaltiel
which moke up the Commons, Ihe little coterie of Englishmen is by no
means insignificant, both as regards
ability and industry.
A Toronto  Practical Joke.
This is not so much an anecdote as
it is n warning. As a result of lhe
trouble between the Toronto Electric
Light, Co. and the city, some active
young men have planned a practical
joke. It has been played Upon a
number of people, and anyone who
hos a telephone may be victimized.
lt is so simple that a person fa.Is
easily into tl.*? trap. On a cold evening you will be sitting by the grate
fire reading and feeling glad thot
you do not have to face the chilly
winds, when the telephone rings. You
go to the 'phone and the following
conversation ensues:
"Is that Mr. A.?"
"This is the T.E.L. speaking. You
know we have been having considerable trouble lately. Would you mind
letting us know if the ure light at
th. corner ol the street is burning?"
Deceived by the business-like voice,
you express your willingness to lie
obliging, lt is necessary lor you to
go to the bottom of the verandah
steps or even to the sidewalk to secure the desired information, and you
return shivering to the 'phone in
| about five minutes.
"Yes," you say, "the light is burn-
I ing."
"Well, the city says they do not
need it." ssys the voice nt the other
end nf the line. "Will you kindly blow
it out?"
Then he rings off, and you say
things—Saturday Night.

Shrinking Billiard Belli.
As ivory dries it shrinks, and experience has taught the ivory billiard
ball turner that a tusk shrinks more
in width than in leng'.i. To meet
this peculiarity the best balls ore
mode from tusks little thicker than
th ■ ball. The tusks ol cow elephant!
are best for billiard balls. Thay are
not so curved as bull t-sks, and ths
fine nerve passage is not so plainly
seen. The billiard ball is turned in
the rough nnd kept in a warm room
for two years, lt is then, after shrinking, turned again to true.
Lacked  Atmosphere.
"I did hope for an artistic career,"
said the disappointed looking man,
"but 1 met with difficulties I could
not conquer. What 1 needed wat atmosphere."
"I see! The tame old trouble. What
were you—an author or a painter?"
"Neither. I was learning to play tho

The provincial department of

science of modern fruit packing by

summer and autumn. These com
petitions will be conducted in tbe

Conductor J. F. Qetsey, who
punches tickets on tbe Oroville-Spo-
kane run, had a scare thrown into
him on one of his trips last week
that fnr a time made him feel as
limp as a dish rag. The engine of
his train struck a herd of cows and
calves, and one of the latter was pulverized and the fragments forced between the wheels on one of the
trucks of a passenger coach. When
the train was stopped and Mr. Get-
sey made an examination he was
horrified to see a pair of human
feel sticking out from the midst of
tbe shredded veal. Naturally he
supposed the engine had struck a
man, and hence tbe fright. When
tbe debris was pried loose a tramp,
who had been stealing a ride on the
truck, was uncovered. Aside from
being a horrible sight from the met>s
he wns covered with the man sustained no injury, strange to say.—

The Breatheablo Remedy for Catarrh.
The rational way to combat catarrh
it the Hyomei way, viz., by breathing.
Scientists for years have been agreed
on this point, but failed to get an antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs and not destroy the tissues of
the membrane ut tbe same time, until the discovery of Hyomei (pronounced High-o-nie.)
Hyomei is the most powerful yet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through the inhaler over the inflamed
and germ-ridden membrane four or
five times a day, and in a few days the
germs will disappear.
A complete Hyomei outfit, including the inhaler, costs $1.00, aud extra
bottles, if afterwards needed, cost but
50 cent. Obtainable from your druggist or postpaid from the R. T. Booth
Co., Ltd., Fort Erie, Ont. Hyomei
is guaranteed to cure asthma, croup,
