Tbe Grand Forks Poultry and
Pet Stock association held its third
show, and first'! winter show, tbis
week, with verw. gratifying results.
About 600 entries were made, and
Judge Miller Purvis, of Wendell,
Idaho, who placed the awards, declared tbe show brought out a
larger percentage of really tine
fowls than be had e*-er Been in a
show held in an interior city. In a
number of the classes the judge said
be might bave ignored all the prize
winners and still, have had enough
birds of high quality to have made
another full jlist of awards, T.
Bowen, of this oity, was tbe champion prize winner, as be took a large
number of prizes in the open classes
and in specials took down eight
silver cups, besides other trophies.
J. A. McCallum came second with
tbree cups and four otber trophies.
There were twenty cups offered, and
when these two gentlemen carried

tbeir place among the breeders of
fine poultry in British Columbia
was practically assured as far as tbe
present show season is concerned.

Late Hotel Man of This City
Ends Life in Shack Near
Phoenix
Charles Peterson, one of the late
proprietors of the Colin hotel in tbis
city, committed suicide in a vacant
shack near Phoenix sometimes last
week by banging himself. On Monday a teamster who visited the shack
discovered the body suspended from
a rafter, and it is now supposed tbat
the deed had been committed four
days previous to this time. Tbe remains were buried al Phoenix yesterday. No cause has baen assigned
for tbe rash act.
Peterson was a pioneer of Grand
Forks. For a number of years he
worked at the Granby smelter, and
tben he drifted into (be liquor business. He was between forty and
fifty years of age, and a native of
Sweden. His only relative in this
country is a brother. Swan, wbo
lived bere for a number of years,
but wbo is now a resident of Prince
Rupert. Peterson's last business
venture was a financial failure, and
tbis fact undoubtedly bad soothing
to do with his determination -0 take
his own life, •    '
  «
All hopes ol finding Jesse Blay-
lock, uf Cunniugbam, Wash., who
joined a hunting party in the North
Fork country last week and failed
to return to camp at night, have
now been abandoned, and all searching parties have returned trom the
hills. Tbe missing man was 28
years of age, and possessed n robust
constitution. It is therefore feared
that some . accident bas overtaken*
bim, and as considerable snow has
lately fallen in the mountains, it is
not likely that bis body will be
found until next spring, if it ever is
discovered. His father and brother
arrived in lhe eity from Cnnning-
hiitn last Sunday, and joined in the
search, hut they, loo, bave been
forced to give up hope for tbe present.
Married
Miss Laura Cavers Harrigan ami
George Burton Russell, both of
Grand Forks, were united in martin ge in Nelson on Wednesday, the
4th inst. Tbe bride is a daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Harrigan, of
this city. She has been a nurse at
the Cottage hospital for a number of
years, and has s wide circle of
friends, with whom she is very pop
ulnr. The groom is well and favorably known here, having been a
resident nf the city for a number ol
years. Recently he has been in the
employ of the C.P.R. nt Kholt. Mr.
and Mrs Russell will be at home tu
their friends in this cily after January I, 1918,

Considerate Judge
Judges were very considerate in the
old days.. Lord Brampton in bis lie-
lnlnlscences, relates a story Illustrating this.
Baron Jdartln, a famous English,
jurist ot tne oM school, whose native
leniency and sense of fun tjften
placed him at. th? mercy of the very
men he was trying, was tmce about
lo sentence'un old offender charged
with a petly theft.
Look, said the Baron, witb an assumption of severity; 1 hardly know
what to do, b'lt you can take six
montliB.
1 can't take that, my lerd, It's too
much, said the prisoner respectfully
tout firmly. I can't, lake It. Your
lordship sees I didn't steal very much
aflei- all.
The I.ln.im indulged ln one of his
low, chuckling laughs before replying.
Well, that's verr* true; ye didn't
steal much, he said. Well thon, ye
can tak' four months. Will that do
—four months'.
Nay, my lord, but I can't take that,
eilhor, was the reply.
Then tak' three.
That s uearer the mark my lord, the
prisoner said, approvingly. But. I'd
rather you made it two, If you will
be so kind.
Verra well, then, tak' two, said the
judge with tbe air of one who ls
pleased to bave done tbe right thing
t.t last. And mind, don't come again.
If ye do, I'll give ye—wejl, it all depends!
My Kingdom
Down by the Bblnlng water well
I found a very little dell,
No higher than my head.
The heather and the gorse about
In summer.bloom were coming out,
Some yellow and some red.
I culled the little pool a sea;
The little hills were big to me;
I, m.ade, a b.oat,
For I am very small.
I made a boat, I made a town,
I searched tbe caverns up and down,
And named them one and all,
And all about was mine, I said,
The little sparrows overhead,
The little minnows, too.
Tbis was 're world, and I was king,
For me the bees came by to sing,
For ine the swallows flew.
I played ther. were no deeper seas,
Nor any wider plains than these,
Nor other kings than me.
At last I heard my mother call
Out from tbe house at evenfall,
To call me home to tea.
And I must list and leave my dell,
And leave icy dimpled water well,
And leave my heather blooms,
Alas, and as my home I neared,
How very big my nurse appeared,
How great nnd cool the rooms!
—Robert Louis Stevenson
Very  Considerate
Well, said tho superior person, that
seems to be tbo general impression
tbat prevails among the masses.
I'll liiiv.e you understand, sir, tbat I
nni not one ol the masses.
I know lhat, yawned the self-satisfied one, getting up. I prefixed the
'm' merely cut of consideration for
your feelings.

To Lure the Cat
I was coming home rather late from
the theatre the other night says Robing Goodfellow, and of- was quiet ns
I walked down beneath the IreeB in
our modest surbutban road. Then,
quite suddenly, I came upon a romantic little scene In the front garden of
one of the most respectable ot the
villas.
Beneath two tall .tree3 a fire of
sticks bad beeu lighted, and over it
bent the shivering foruiB ot two young
ladles In evening dress. I noticed
to my surprise, that, one of the ladles
had a frying pan In ber bands, and an
appetising smell ot bacon rose into
the air. I wondered whether these
two products of eity civilisation were
playing at the simple life; but# the
next day I found the incident had a
more, prosaic -Explanation.
The favprtte Persian cat had been
missed during tbe evening, and at
length had been located. In the upper
boughs of 6ne of the trees. All
blandishments failed to persuade her
to come down, and yet her owners
refused to lock ber out for tbe night
At last they remembered that ahe
would always make her way Into the
kitchen in the morning and sit sniffing at the frizzling bacon, and they
decided to fry some bacon at the bottom of thc tree to attract her.
After half an hour over the flro the
ruse succeeded at the cost of two bad
colds.

A surgeon describes a remarkable
case ot a patient's confidence in his
medics., adviser.
When I was a student in London I
had an Irish patient with a broken leg.
When the plaster bandage was removed and a lighter one put In Its
place, I noticed that one ot the ping
went ln with great difficulty, and 1
could not understand lt. A week
afterwards, on removing the pin I
found It had stuck hard and fast and
I was forced to remove It with the
forceps. What was my astonishment
In making an examination, to find that
the pin had been run through the skin
twice, Instead ot through the cloth
Why Pat, said I, didn't yon know
that pin was slicking in you?
To be sure 01 did, replied Fat. But

Truly British
Perhaps few stories of battles so
thoroughly Illustrate the true British
spirit and way of doing things aa the
Hltlo incident at a reconnaissance before tho Battle of Ulandl, of which
Lord William Beresford was the hero
The British were almost led into a
terrible tr..p, and discovered the danger only Just In time. They turned
to retreat, anl lhe Zulus poured ln a
volley which brought down the grey
l.orse of a mounted Infantryman. His
rider fell bead foremost. The rest
thought both man and borse were killed at first, but the former soon struggled to hla feet, with his face covered
w'th blocd and dazed with his fall
Lord William Beresford, seeing
what had happened, pulled up, and In
the fate of advancing hosts of yelling
savages, within easy range," quietly
trotted back aud told the mau to
mount behind him.
With a cool courage scarcely second
to Lord WilllamY, the mau refused,
noble fellow thnt he was. preferring
the certain sacrifice of his own life
to the probability of destroying his
preserver.
TjT.c reply was admirable, terse, and
telling. The savages swarmed closer
t.iid closer, bullets rattled around
them; thc two who lingered were almost within reach of thc assegais,
nnd Lord Wi Ilium said:
Oet up or I'll punch your head!
Tho mm obeyed and rescuer and
rescued escaped.
That's urrant nonsense, said Mr.
Henpeck, about there always beclng

Laughed Once
A certain European regiment stationed in Northern India has a colonel who has only once been seen to
laugh.
A private ot this corps, while a prisoner In the guard-room for a military
offence, bet the sergeant ot the guard
five rupees that ho wouid make the
commanding officer laugh wben be
was taken before him.
In due course, after reading the
charge, the colonel asked the prisoner:
Have you anything to say?
I won't say anything more about it,
sir, if you won't was the unexpected
reply. _
The grim face relaiSa, but the stern
decision came all the same—Fourteen

A    DOCTOR'S   TRIALS
Ht Sometimes Gets Sick Like Othtr
Ptoplt
Even doing good to people is hard
work lf you have too much of it to
do.
An overworked doctor tell his experience:
"About three years ago as the result ot doing two men's work, attending a large practice and looking after
the details of another business, my
health broke down completely, and I
was little better than a physical
wreck.
'I suffered from Indigestion nnd
constipation, loss ot weight and appetite, bloating and pain after meals,
loss of memory and lack of nerve
force for continued mental application.
1 became Irritable, easily angered
nnd despondent without cause. The
heart's action became Irregular and
weak, with frequent attacks ot palpitation during ihe first hour or two
after retiring.
"Some Grape-Nuls and cut bananas
came for my lunch ono day and
pleased me particularly with the result. I got more satisfaction
from it (ban from anything I had eaten for months, and on further Investigation and use, adopted Grape-Nuts
for my morning and evening meals,
served usually with cream and a
sprinkle of salt or sugar.
"My Improvement was rapid and
permanent, in weight ns well as In
physical and mental endurance. In
a word, 1 am filled wilh the Joy nf
living again, and continue the dally
use of Urape-Nuts for breakfast and
often for the evening meal.
"Tho little pamphlet, "The Koad to

needy patient along wilh thc Indicated
remedy."

More About
The Loading Platform
The present generation of Western farmer: will never know ibt
difficulties aui vexations experienced by the!:* predecessors ln .the
earlier years when no one could get a carload of grain shipped - in
bulk exeept by loading lt through an elevator The system forced
the majority of farmers to sell tielr gralu to tbe elevator owners
at arbitrary prices, and oft times to submit to beavy dookage and
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now, however,
the distribution ot cars as fixed by tho Oraln Act: and the use of the
loading platform, provide facilities which enable the farmer to secure
satisfactory treatment tn the disposal of hts grain, and the highest
market prices tt time of sale. 3very farmer therefore, should mttrt
and more endeavor to use the loading platform Ir shipping bit grain
to the terminal elevators. It Is the safeguard of tlie farmers' freedom lu dlaimlng ot his grain to the best advantage for himself. ' .If
farmers refrain from using the loading platform freely, lt might-result ln Its being done away with, because railway companies and
elevator owners are strongly opposed to it. It In easy to understand
why elevator pcoplo desire the loading plattorm abolished. The nil-
way people oi their part say It delays the loading of cars and helps to
ensure ear shortage. Tbis we know t> he nonsense, because frequently after cars are loaded, whether with grain, coal, lumber, or
other merchandise, they are sld. tracked for days and even weeks
Instead of being promptly moved forward to destination. It Is engine
shortage and shortage ef competent lraln,re.cn that mostly causes
grain blockales on railways and not lack of cars. Let every farmer
therefore, do all he can to use tho loading platform and become an independent shipper. In suhse)*.ent advertisements we will state In
detairthe savings and other advantages ot direct loading Into cars
compared with loading through elevators.
We handle the farmers grain strictly on commission, make liberal
advances on car bills of lading, supervise tho grading at time ears
are Inspected, secure the highest, prices at tim? of sale and mika
prompt ret a,* .is when' sold. Wrllo us for shipping Instructions and

Headache is a symptom, and not a

trouble.
By reading Mr. Donneral's letter
you will be satisfied that -there ds no
treatment to be a compared to Dr
Chase's Nerve Food ns a means, of
building up the system and removing
the cause of headaches, sleeplessness
and Indigestion.
Mr. Charles Donncral, Klelnhurg,
Ont., writes: "I wish to communicate
to you the great cure which I received
from Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. For
over two years I suffered from ftnrful
headaches, my appetite was always
poor, and the stomach bad. I took
medicines from physicians, but the
headaches persisted, and I was rarely
free from them.
• "Reading about Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food, I began using it, with little idea
Klial I would be benefited. I had become thin and weak, and tho very
first box helped me, and with continued treatment I have heen cured
and feel like a new man. The headaches have disappeared, my appetite
is good aud digestion excellent. I
write this letter In hope that otber
sufferers from headache may; use Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food aud be cured."

Zam-Buk Has Healed It!
Mrs. Wilson, 110 Wickson Ave.,
Toronto, says: "About four years ago
a sore spot appeared on the right side
ot my face. This spot increased in
size? until lt became about lia.f an inch
In diameter and very painful. I
went to a doctor, but the ointment he
gave me did not have any good effect.
The sore continued to discharge freely, and was most painful. I had it
cauterized, tried poultices, arid all
kinds of salves, hut It was no good,
ahd I continued tq suffer from It for
four years!
"A sample of Zam-Buk was one
day given to me, and I used it. Although the quantity was so Wall, it
seemed to do me some good, so I purchased a further supply.
Each box did me more and more
good, and, to my delight, before I had
been using Zam-Buk threo weeks, I
saw that It was going to heal the sore.
In less than a -month it was healed!
"S\ know a lady In the east of the
city, whose husband suffered for
years with an open eore on his leg.
Ou my recommendation, Ztini-Buk
was tried l-u that case. The other
.day, when I «saw thar, she told ,me that
tt had healed the sore completely.
"My daughter, who lives iu Lethbridge, Alta., has also used Zam-Bult
with the same satisfactory result'. I
think lt Is, beyond all doubt, the finest
healing balm known."
Such* is the opinion of all persons
wiio -have realty tried Zam-Buk. It
is a sure cure for eczema, pitas, ob-

PRESS OPINION
Though parliament has been in
session but one week', it must be already apparent to those who place
the most favorable construction upon
the press reports of the proceedings
■ that the government is on the defensive to a degree uuext.mp.ed in the
history of recent parliaments. The
speech of the prime minis'er in reply to Sir Wilfrid Laurier was weal-
in spirit as well a* in argument,
while that of the minister of finance
waa but another illustration of the
art of backing and filling. Ths dis-
pointment occasioned by the two
chief ministers was increased by the
violent outbreak of Hon. Robert
Ragers. The new minister of public
workB undertook to champion himself in the disgraceful conduct of tbe
Macdonald election, and in doing so
made a remarkable statoment.
He said that ths Liberals falsely arrested at the instance of ministers of
the crown—as it is now charged in
the courts—were allowed to.go without trial because of the softhearted-
ness of the Tory managers. If the
things are true of these workers
which Mr. Rogers alleged- on the
floor of the house, the minister* of
the crown are guilty of connivance
at crime. The bluff of Mr. Rogers
as to what he now intends to do
with these men will not be accepted.
Had they been guilty of the offences
he alleges he is equally culpable
with themselues for not prosecuting
them before.-—Victoria Times.
aldermen, under our civic system,
are failures. The TojoiHo Evening
Telegram sayB that the hydro-electric
undertaking, the Canadian National
exhibition, and the harbor would
not be aB successfully bandied if
tbey were under the direct control
of tbe city. Each of tbem is under
a commission. It goes so far as to
say "a commission is doing niore in
two yexr* to give Toronto a harbor
than the aldermen bave done in
seventy five." When a paper like
the Telegram, a strong supporter of
municipal ownership and a keen
opponent of private corporations,
becomes convinced that our preeeut
system of civic government is a failure, there,is hope for a change.—
Canadian Courie.
!':
From the nation-wide unrest Kt
present shown under tbe aldermanic
system of civic government, if is ap
parent that the honor of bning an
aldtrgiau is becoming more and
morea doubtful one, partly becaui-e
even if capable men are elected they
find themselves swamped by incompetent colleagues. Under the aldermanic system dissatisfaction has developed everywhere as soon as cities
become so large that the publie
ceased to watch the councils closely
or realize mucb of what these bodies
and tbeir members were doing. Tbe
people can govern themselves aright.
The impossible candidates against
whom the Kingston Standard protests are products of tbe system.
The responsibility of the aldermanic
system is too divided, the motor
power too slack and diffuse. Tbere
are too mony generals and not enough
commander-in-chief.—Ottawa Journal. 	
Everywhere the ery goes up that
A Quebec exchange says: If there
is anything on earth that gives us a
longing for eternal rest and deep,
damp solitude, it is the man who
comes to a town or country, builds
up a big, paying business, grows
ricb and then squats down on the
gold like a hen on a.doorknob, and
is trio stingy even to let the gravels
grind in bis own big gizzard. A
real, genuine, lH-karat, stingy, selfish man can't he honest, and if he
ever gets to heaven and has wings,
he will ruffle a plume or lose a tail
feather. The kind of men who build
up a town and county and enjoy life
and make the best citizens, are tbe
enterprising, cue getic and liberal
men, who believe in living and letting others live; and who do not,
wben tbey eet a dollar, squeeze it
t II tbe goddess of liberty feels like
Bhe bad on a corset. Such squeezing
is what causes hard times and stops
tbe circulation of the big round dollars. If it were not for our broad-
guaged, enterprising men it would
be impossible to build up a | rosper-
ous city.

inrii the occupants out if they owe a
week's rent. One old man, who had
lieen Ills tenant for many years, was
unfortunately taken 111, and was unable (6 work for some long time.
Eventuo ly he got two weeks in arrears of rent, and, when the landlord
called cs usual, told him that he could
not pay anything that morning.
The churchwarden said ho was sorry for him. He would go to the
vicar and see lf he could get a'dona
tion from the. poor-box, to which tho
old man replied: Thank you, sir; it
is very kind ot yon.
WeU, I havo managed to get you
Ss. from the poor-box, he said, on calling tho hest day.
* Thank you sh-, was the grateful response.
Where's your renOiook? continued
the churchwarden, and on its production, he wrote the two week»* arrears

shown the tenant into bis own pocket,
and, advising him not lU-6et into arrears again, wished aim good-morning.

New Trans-Paclflc Steamships
All Trans-Paclflc records are expected to be broken when the Canadian
Pacilic Railway puts into service Ite
two new steamships, the Empress*©!
Russia and the Empress of Asia. The
Empress ot Russia was launched, a
couple of weeks ago at the yards of
thc Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company at 0't.sgow, Scotland,
and as u result, wilt be the flrst ot the
two now vessels to feel the swells ot
thc Pacilic,. In the meantime, whllo
the vessel ls being completed, much
discussion ls heard among traffic men
as to just what effect the new boats
will havo on Trans-Paclflc skipping.
Canadian Pacific officlas themselves
believe that the Introduction of tbe
new boats into the service betweeu
Canada and tlio Orient will mark a
new epoch In traffic on the Pacific.
Certain it ls, howovor, that whatever
otlier results aro felt, all present records for fast voyages between Canada and Japan and China will be considerably lowered. The Empress ot
Japan at present holds thc record for
tho fastest voyage the Pacific, having
made the distance between Vancouver
and Yokohomn ln 10 days, 10 hours,
and 4 minutes; and between Vancouver and Hong Kong ln 17 days, 10
hours and IC minutes, inclusive of
stops. The Japan however, has only
a contracted speed of 18 knots on the
measured mile and 16 knots on » sea
trip, while the new Empress steamers
are designed for a speed of 20 knots
per hour. This great advantage in
speed will undoubtedly mean a big reduction in the duration ot a Trans-Pacific voyage, and in fact, some skipping
men are of the opinion that the Empress of Russia will cut. almost 24
hours off the Empress of Japan, Vancouver-Yokohomn .

ONLY ONE WAY TO '
CURE RHEUMATISM
It Mast Be Treated Through the
Blood and the Poisonous Acid
Driven Out
The twinges and tortures of rheumatism are not due to cold, damp
weather as so many persons suppose
Rheumatism comes from poisonous
acid'ln the blood. This is a medical
truth which every sufferer should realize. There is only one way to cure
rheumatism—lt must be treated
through the blood. All tke liniments
anl rubbing and so-called electric
treatment In tho world -will not cure
rheumatism, aud the sufferer who
tries them le not only wasting money,
but is allowing the trouble to become
more deep-rooted in the system and
harder to cure when the proper remedy Ib tried. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills make the new, rich blood of
health, aud ln this way drive ont the
poisonous acid which causes rheumatism. Thousands of instances of
cures might be given, among which ls
the following ono. Mrs. O. R. Dui-
mage, Cherry Valley, Ont., says:
was attacked with rheumatism Which
gradually grew worse, until I was confined to my bed. For about two
weeks I had to be shifted and turned
lu bed as I was utterly unable to help
myself. I ,a%s under the doctor's
care und so far recovered that I was
able to get up and move about, but
the trouble stllfreraalned lu my system. If I put my hands iu cold water, or lt I went out In tho evening or
in damp weather the trouble v^puld
return, and for four years I thus suffered from rheumatism, until 1 began
to think lt could not be driven from
my system.. Finally I gave up all
other medicine and began to use Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, and after using
them for a couple of months I was
completely cured and have not hed
a twinge of - rheumatism since. I
can recommend the Pills to anyone
suffering from this trouble."
These Pills arc sold by all medicine
dealers or by mall at 50 cents a box

The Result of in Adventure

By EDWIN C. THORNTON
There was trouble among the students of ths Gordon medical college lu
tbe matter of obtaining subjects for

-wsy, commonly called body snatching,
which meant robbing net* graves. But
..when a iiarty was caught red handed
Ih .ono of these desecrations so great
was tbs Indignation among tbe citizens
of the place that tbey threatened to

One evening Just before dusk Dick
Barlow, n medical Student, looking ont
of lbs bnck window of bis room, saw
through au opposite window ot s helming backing up sgalnst bis warding

and stark on a board, tbe ends of wblcb

aot remarkable tbat bo was confronted
by. a great temptation.

the corpse ley was on tbs ground floor.
Tbe removal would bs essy, but if ths
remover was detected tbe consequences
would bs terrible.
Mr. Bsrlow, about 10 o'clock that
algbt, wllb blankets on bis arm In

Uo determined to keep his own counsel wltb regard to bis Intended theft

a vacant room awaiting tbo offices of

was supposed tbat It bad been stolen
by tbe students.' Barlow beard'tbla
and shuddered. Bs was not chsrged
with tbs thoft, but bo Imagined tbat
•very person wbo looked at blm had
suspicion In bla eye.
Tho college authorities ordered a
thorough search for tbo body, bnt without success, for a few days It was
feared tbst ths clllsens would attack

made to tear down the dissecting room.
But after awhile tho sscltement died

Something occurred before the expiration of tbls sscond year's work wblcb
gave tbo lover tbo victory. Miss Etheridge, from her devotion to a patleat
suffering from a.contsgious dlssass,
caught tba malady. Dr. Barlow devoted Mniself to her with tb* same assid-

mltted to Miss Btheridg* aad Dr. Barlow, thoy hold a consultation, at
wMch ao oao wu present except

at ber former .overt confessed action,
clung to ber flsnes. They decided to
return to tbe wedding room and request the clergyman to finish the gere-
mony. It ta needless to ssy that ths
mnn who had caused tbe trouble wss

Tbo story being known to sll, tho

Dr, Barlow now laid bis pisns for

seemed very happy in anticipation of

Neither of tbe two bavlng any means

Hiss Etheridge, who bsd grown attached to the hospital staff, to bo married on tbo premises, wbere sbs would

Ths day before tho dote sst for tbs

Although   tha   terrible   gust  that
struck Begins recently is the first cy-
done recorded in Canada, the prairio
country of our west ia noted for its
I high winds, says The Toronto Tele-
| gram.   As one approaches the rolling
country thia feature of the climate
. becomes marked.
| There is s saying that it is alwaya
i blowing in Mtclcod. indeed, on ths
! calmest summer daya there is geuer-
! ally a slight breeto in that section.
The wind-is bslieved to shoot out
irom the funnel of the Crow's Nest
Pass, which Ib some fifty miles duo
west in the Rockies. On most days,
to an easterner's mind, it is blowing a
gale in this southern Albsrta town.
Everything is clean swept as tltoufjh
by a huge broom. The slonss show
sharply through the metalling of the
roads, while all odds and ends ol paper ars whirled away until caught
by tlie nearest wire fence. Tin cans
are the special delight of theso high
winds, which send them Uying. bumping and rolling over the prairie. In
old ranching days when tho then
little town was not ao particular,
visitors were regsled witli a curious
! sight. This wss a deep conlee or ravine on the edge of the settlement.
| Here, piled in s chaotic mass, wss a
deposit oi sll tho old tins, swept there
>: thot ttrele scavenger, the wind.
Calgary is scarcely loss famous for
wind than its southern neighbor. A
real Calgary dust storm is sr mslblng
to bo remembered. The writer saw
one of the worst in years. It wss
on a summer Sunday morning; ths
air waB tranquil and the sun shon*
brilliantly. It was one of those glorious exhilarating days for whieh tho
foothill country is noted. Suddenly
the wind sross, swooping fiercely
from the mountains; dark clouds
cdtne over tbe peaks, and in tan
minutes ttie whole prairie was a swirl
of dust.
Another somewhat similar storm
happened in southern Saskatchewan
in Juns, 1.0O. One very hot morning
the wind stsrted blowing from. the
south, snd ss it attained an e'ver-
I growing velocity the hea*. instead of
I abating, seemed to increase. All day
! long this sirocco swept aercss the
! prairie while the thermometer hover-
I ed around IOS in the shade. The only
cool place was insids a hnuso with
i doors and windows tightly shut.
Grass snd crops were scorched up
in the path of the wind as though
' a hot blast had been playing on them.
. Government records show this dsy as
'. being ons of the hottest, il not lho
' very hottest day, ever experienced in
' the West.
A soienliflj explanation accredits
lio; southern winds in the Csnsdlsn
West to the passing of ths air ovsr
ths huge areas ol the corn fields in
si.cli states as Nebraska, Kansss,
etc., where corn is tho staple crop,
and where ths radiation of heat 'rom
the ground is intense.
Sometimes, hours in advance ot a
Chinook wind In southern Alberts, a
low distant roaring can h > heard from

Robert Clark had on exhibitions
at the poultry show a pen of Gold
and Silver Campines. They were
disqualified as prize winners on account of their wings having been
clipped. Mr. Clark states that these
are the only birds of this variety in
the province. He obtained the setting from J. Fred N. Mennedy, of
Birch Cliff, Ont., importer and.
breeder of improved champion strain
Silver Campinea. The Canipimu
are said to be "layers of large white
eggs and lota of them."
Woodland & Co. yesterday moved
their drim store into thc Boundary
Trust fc Investment company's new
brick Work, on the corner of Bridee
and First streets. They now have
the finest store in the city, ns well
as being most centrally located. The
new premises are decidedly metropolitan in appearance.
Sam Roberts, of Repuhlic, who
has been confined in the city jail for
several weeks on a charge of having
stabbed Hugh Lisle, was released
last Friday on a $500 cash liond.
The bond was furnished by bis Republic friends. He will have his

TO CONSUMPTIVES
Rev, Edward A.Wilson having been
restored to health by simple means, after suffering for several years with a
severe affection and that dread disease
CONSUMPTION, I am anxious in
his behalf to make known to his fellow
sufferers the means of his cure. To
any one who desires it I will seijd (free
of chaige) a full description of his
cure. You will find it a wonderful
remedy for CONSUMPTION, ASTHMA, BRONCHITIS, CATARRH,
GRIP, COUGHS, COLDS, and all
lung and throat maladies. I hope all
suffers will try Mr. Wilson's remedy,
as it is invaluable. Those desiring the
description, which will cost them
nothing, and may prove a blessing,
will please address,Charle>> A. Abbott,
