Pirofits Result From
the Skilful Growing of

.    HORTICTI.TlllllsT.
The onion is one,of the most important vegetable crops. In the districts of lhe. Delta and Chilliwack,
Armstrong, Vernon and Kelowna
growers making this crop a special:
ty now ship numbers of straight
carloads yearly. Crops from tbe first
two mentioned points go largely to
the local markets, the coast onion
not being a particularly good chipper for piairie trade. The interior
grown product goes to local markets
also, but principally to the prairies.
Only the main crop niatuie
'bulbs so far are grown, though there
is an opportunity, for development
of tbe trade in pickling onions, and
" the large Spanish types, sucb as
Prizetaker and Gibraltar.
The large profits rei-u'tii g Irom
'skilful culture on reasonably snita-
ble land have made onion growing
popular wi(b those holding limited
tracts, especially among young
orchard trees, while truck growers in
localities particularly adapted, botb
as to soil and climate,, to onion cul
ture have found the business profitable in larger areas.
This market is generally good.
Even against the duty into Canada
of 30 per cent ad valorem, we import about -15,000 bushels annually.
The f.o.b. price at Okanagan points
for a number of years past hae averaged about 120 per ton for Yellow
Dan vers in 1001b. bags. * As a general pile, the price increases during
the months, but lack of storage facilities and the danger of frost in
transit have prevented any great development of Btorage business.
Prices, nevertheless, have been high-
, ly remunerative, and the market is
steadily increasing.'
New Method of Onion Culture.'—
There has recently arisen a method
of culture in which the seed is sown
in March in hot beds and the plants
set in the field in May. when about
the size of a lead pencil. The advantages of this method are:
1. Leas seed is required.
2. There is a larger and more
uniform crop, in which the expenses
of weeding and thinning are almost
entirely obviated; and -
3  The crop is harvested earlier.
Tbe disadvantage* are tbe cost of
labor entailed by transplanting, and
the cost of tho preparation of suitable hotbeds. Where soil is npt well
prepared, or moisture becomes de
iicient in August, or where labor is
reasonably inexpensive, tbis method
is worthy of. consideration, but is
not used at present in this province.
The Old Method of Onion Growing.—Used almost altogether in the
i province for commercial purposes,
this does sufficiently well, especially
in the districts above mentioned,
where a long growing season, suitable noil, and a knowledge of tbe re-
tpiiremenls of (he business combine
to make il a success.  -
Selection of Soil.—The selection
of soil is of the grertest importance,
as it will not pay to grow onions on
poor soil. The mechanical condition
,.f tbesoifiB of first consideration.
H eavy clay soils should be' avoided
because tbey are difficult to work,
usually deficient io organic matter,
land often.improperly drained. They
can not be worked as early in the
spring aB is desired, and the surface
bakes aud cracks after a rain unless
stirred, at the proper time.
Soils rich in decomposed vegetable matter are tbe most valuable for
the cultivation of onions. A rich
sandy loam is a very good soil,
especially where irrigation is practised. A black-muck soil that has
been well drained is one of the best
soils for onion culture. It bas the
power of retaining moisture whicb is
so essential to tbe. growth of onions.
Fields which bave been overrun with
weeds should be used for other crops
before planting with onions.
The Seed.—Tbe seed should be of
the very best quality to obtain the
hest results. Do not buy seed because itis cheap. The cost of seed
is small compared witb the other
expenditures in growing a crop of
onions. Itis always best to test the
quality of the seed before planting
a-ach year, a very good method being to place a few seeds in a damp
woollen clotb or mo st cotton, aud
note the number germinating. Order
tbe seed early, because you are iben
•mre of getting tbe "film's besi
quality*. '
Variety to Grow.—This depend?
almost entirely on the market t>
which you are catering. The onion
to grow is tbe one whioh will I com
mand the highest price on the mar
ket. As a rule, this is an onion
hard.and compact in structure, mild
and sweet in flavor, witb a tbin
skin, small neck, and as neaily
globular in form as possible. Ii
should also be bright and handsome
in appearance, productive, and of a
superior keeping quality. As a reliable market variety, to be grown
in the old way, and for general pur
poses, the Yellow Dan vera has probably not yet found its equal.
Fertilizing.—Barnyard manure is
indispensable unless-the soil naturally contains a large amount of humus. Itsbould be ploughed under
in the fall unless very well rotted,
when it might be applied on tbe
surface and harrowed in. If applied
on the surface when not well rotted,
it has a tendency to hinder tbe
working of the seed drill and wheel
hoe. A good heavy dressing, 15 to
20 Ions per acre, every three or four
years gives very good results. - Hen
inauure, I Ion per ucre, ie very
highly recommended for onions, lt
will produce the best results wben
applied as a top dressing before
planting. Care should lie taken
tbat all manures used are free from
weed seeds.
Of the nitrogenous commercial
fertilizers, nitrate of soda is largely
ueed. From 200 lb. to 400 lb. per
acre are applied in four equal dressings. The first application sbould
be made broadcast just before seeding, and mixed with the surface
soil by harrowing. Tbe otber dressings are made by a drill |at intervals throughout, the growing season.
Tb supply potash, wood ashes are
frequently used. Ashes are applied
In ths fall, winter, or - early spring,
and Bhould be harrowed in at the
rate of about U tons per acre. Bone
meal or other phosphates are beneficial if phosphoric acid ia 'required.
Each grower should study the requirements of his soil.' A few ex-

Preparation of Soil.—Fall plough
ing is preferable in most places, as
it gives the vegetable matter a better
chance to decay, and the alternate
freezing and thawing pulverizes the
soil. Tbe ground can also usually
be worked earlier in the spring,
which is sometimes Of great advantage, No labor shoultl he spared in
putting the soil inline condition.
It should bs harrowed four or five
times and rolled two or three limes,
depending, of course, on the natural
firmness of the soil. A plank drag
is a very, good implement to level
the surface and make it smooth for
planting. It is very important lo

How tile Bedouin Captures   a
When  Her  Parents Oppose

Just as It Is allowable with the Bedouin to>Bteal camels, so the young
men may .help one another to steal
wlveB from other tribes. For example, says tha Wide World, notice
win be given beforehand by a youth
to the parents Of the girl that, since
Bhe has not yet been asked for, he1
wants her and is willing to pay such
and snch a price.
Only .the rich can afford to ■ buy
themselves pretty wives, for the price
Is sometimes considerable.. Bbsldes
camels, goatts, sheep and clothing, a
large sum ln money must also be paid.
It often happens that the parents of
, the girl refuse to give her at tlie price
'Axed, or declare that they wish to
her longer, or that she Is too
, may continue-until the young
man is exasperated and will not be
'put oft any longer. 'He then forms a
company ot his companions, all
mounted and well armed, while he
| also mounts on camels and horses ten
I women of his camp. They go seoret-
ly to the camp where the girl is, and
I while the young man and his com-
jpanlons wait with their rifles loaded
| and ready outside the tent, the women
go Into the apartment ot the herein
'and bring the girl out by force.
It is not allowable for strange men
to enter the harem quarters, neither
would lt be proper for the father of

From the-time that a Bedonuln is 18
years of age until he dies ot old age
he is more or less looking out for new
wives. By law Mohammedans are
never allowed to have more than four
at the same time., but they easily
evade this regulation by divorcing
one, which simply means sending her
back to her parents. This Is often because she has borne Mm no sons. Su
lt happens that the old sheikhs almost always havo young wives.
lt Is considered effeminate for a
man to show affection toward h'n
wives, at least openly: Oue of the
young sheikhs of tho Adwans Moutha
ty, who recently lost his young and
only wife acknowledged to he the
prettiest girl In the tribe, shed tears
at her grave. For this he was much
laughed at by his companions, who
said: "It a man's wife die he can
easily procure himself another." But
for a deceased father, brother, or even
mother, they think it doeB not show
weakness to mourn.
This seeming Indifference to women has undoubtedly grown out of
the Idea the men entertain that the
express appreciation of them would
be weak and unmanly. The Bedouins,
In private, treat their wives with more
consideration than is generally shown
among Orientals, especially ao If they
have borne sons. Bedouin women can
go about alone and no one dare molest
them on pain of death.

Many up-to-date scientists hold the
somewhat startling theory that in Its
physique and Its ways the average
baby resembles the ape-like ancestors
of the human race far more than lt
doea the grown-up Into which twenty
years or so will turn it.
Notice, they say, how a small baby
carries the soles ot Its feet. It hae the
power ot turning its ankles in until
the soles are in a line with its legs.
This power is soon .lost, but tt Ib,
so these scientists declare, a direct
Inheritance from the tree-cllmblng
habits of our ancestors.
Another point Is the great strength
of a baby's arm compared with that of
Its legs. Experiments have shown
that nearly all children less than three
years old can suspend themselves by
a .* aims Irom a horizontal walking
stick for at least ten seconds.
mat distinguished scientist. Dr.
Chalmers Mitchell, In a recent lecture,
remarked tbat he had known babies
not only hang on without support, but
voluntarily take away one hand, hanging oti with- only one—even babies only an hour old. This great arm
strength Ib said to date from the days
when our ancestors relied on their
arms alone ln swinging from tree to
Another curious point brought forth'
is that of tbe perpendicular furrow
on the upper, Up. As people grow older this gets less and less distinct, aal
sometimes Vanishes entirely. But In
babies, as In apes, this furrow Is very-
deep indeed.
Again, anybody who has had charge
of a baby knows that, if left to itself
when going to sleep, tt chooses a
posture which seems horribly uncomfortable to Its mother or nurse. It
goes to sleep lying on Its stomach,
with Its limbs curled up beneath it.
Another indication ot how babies
are nearer to the tree-dwelling period
of the race than they are to the adnl'a
around them is said to be found in .he
passion babies hare for crawling up
stairs. No baby will crawl along a
level floor if It can find a staircase.
There seems to be eome mysterious
Instinct teaching It to climb.
To send the baby to sleep you rock
lt, either In the arm or the cradle.
Why? Grown-ups would only turn
giddy. But rocking soothes a baby.
Another legacy, says this school of
scientists from our tree-top days. More
than one scientist has pointed out that
the favorite lullaby In most languages
has, aa ln "Rock-a-by, baby, on the
tree-top," some reference to the
swaying motion of trees, and attempts
have been made to prove that these
lullabies, which are all of great antiquity, are due to the race's dim
memory of the past.
Watch the way a baby grips a mug.
It does not apply thumb and finger
to the handle. It does not try to get
a good leverage by putting the thumb
Inside. No, It uses only its fingers,
bringing the palm down flat with the
fingers inside the brim, .Ignoring the
thumb. Monkeys, which use the
hands simply as hooks to awing from,
neglect the thumb In Just the same
A baby can wiggle Its toes In a way
no adult can. It can separate the bly
toe from the others. In fact, It has
the monkey trick of using the big toe
as a thumb, and the first toe as a
forefinger. And a baby can move Its
toes separately, as a rule, unlike the
adult, whose toes are practically useless to him,
An obvious point ct similarity to
the primeval man-ape Is to be found
ln the baby's crawl. Its Inability to
straighten Its thighs prevents It from
walking upright Though most babies
use the knees in crawling, many, especially those not too fat, uso only
hande and feet.
But lt hi comforting V> remember
that, though many scientists support
this curious version of tbe theory that
the child le father, ot the man, and
believe that babies start thousands of
centuries back and live through hundreds ot years a day, others, Just as
prominent laugh at the Idea.

very choice bazaar, and one Is served
with coffee and Turkish delight.
"In one part they make the queerest
things—scenes done in rough applique work on coarse stuff. There they
sit tallorwlse on the floor of their
stalls, stitching away with the greatest diligence, and when anyone stops
to look, lauding up their wares to the
skies. They are very good natured
in the way they will show their wares,
even though you tell them you have
no Intention of buying. Of course,
they do it in the hope that you may be]
tempted to buy something. But they
are certainly patient. It la ot course
one of their famous characteristics ln
business—enormous patience.
"Then there are the stalls of little
triflcB, quaint and charming and most
fascinating, though of little value.
There Is a tiny model of a mummy
case about half an Inch long, which

Ahd here is Moses ih the bullruahee,
and the lotus flower on every conceivable thing—hatpins, brooches, charms
and so on.
"The precious stone stall with Its
loose stones of all sorts, Is a delight
ful place In wMch to spend some
time, poking about and enjoying a
good look at them all. If one ean afford it. it Is a good .plan to take plenty
of money to the bazaars, but if, on the
other hand, one has to restrict the
amount to be spent It Is as well to
empty all extra cash out of one's
purse, or tbe temptation will certainly be too great, and tbe extra will melt
away. Everything always seems 'such
a bargain,' and far too good to miss;
bnt if the money Is safely left behind,
there is time to cool down."

Pushing the 8teel Across  Prairie and
Mountain In True Western
A report received at the Orand
Trunk Pacific headquarters regarding
track laying on its new western lines
ehowB progress as follows: Up to
the present time on the main line the
track ia now 1,074 miles west of Winnipeg beyond the Yellowhead Pass on
the western elope of the Rocky Mountains. On tbe Alberta coal branch
which ts being built from Blckerdlke
in to tbe Brazean coal fields, the track
haa been pushed 21.4 mllea south ot
tbe former place. On the Tofleld-
Calgary branch steel haa been laid
105.3 miles south of Tofleld and on the
Young-Prince Albert branch it has
been laid 07.3 miles north ot Young.
The entire branch between Melville
and Regina baa been completed, a
mileage of 98.4 as has alio the fifty-
two miles between Melville ft Canora.
On the Reglna-Moose Jaw branch the
end ot steel Is now 1.1 miles west of
Regina. Upwards ot 500 miles of
grading on branch lines is-now completed awaiting the delivery ot steel
for track-laying to be resumed. On
the mountain division it Is now at the
mouth of the tunnel, 104 miles east
of Prince Rupert.
Armies ot men and teams making up
the construction forces are now engaged in transporting supplies along
the Fraser River between Tete Juane
Cache and Fort George in Hritish Columbia and this entire section of the
line covering 190 miles will be a busy
scene of action until "east and west
meet" on the new Transcontinental,
for it will be in British Columbia that
the crowning event in the completion
of the Orand Trunk Pacific Railway
will be celebrated by the driving of
the golden spike that will connect the
Atlantic with the Pacific over the
rails of the only Transcontinental
Railway on tbe North American continent situated wholly within the Dominion of Canada. A fitting occasion
for His Majesty the King to honor.

Firing the Canon on Time
A Parts contemporary publishes an
amusing story from Egypt At one of
the military posts it is the custom to
fire a cannon at noon. Just after the
arrival of a new- lieutenant he was
going around one .day, Just about
qoon. "How do you know the correct
time for firing?" he asked the gunner. "I look at my watch, sir," was
the reply. I have lt regelated once
a month by the watchmaker ln the ad-
lacent village, a SwIbs, who has been
here for aome years,"
A tew days later the lieutenant
found himself tn the village about
noon, and outside the watchmaker's
shop. The Swiss wbb ln the street,
evidently watting for something to
turn, np, ao the lieutenant had a chat
with him.
* "Ieeuppose," Bald the officer, "you
have but little work here?"
"Not much," was the rsponse. "I
have more .leisure than work, but
this is not without advantages. You
see I am now listening for the midday

But Dodd's Kidney Pills Have Benefitted Him eo Much He Recommends
Them to Others—Why They Alwaye
Cure Rheumatism.
Holberg, . B.   C,   (Special).—That
Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure Rheumatism has been proved   again   and
again.   Where the dread disease Is
making Its first inroads into" the system the cure is quick and complete.
Wbere the rheumatism is ot    long
standing'lt takes longer treatment, but
the result ts always the same. Dodd's
Kidney Pills always cure.   Probably
the hardest test Dodd's Kidney Pills
have ever been given is in the caBe of
Mr. C. Mattesen'of this place.   It Is
best stated in hia own words:—
I have1 been troubled with rheumatism all my life," Mr. Mattesen
states, "but I am happy to tell you that
I have received so much benefit trom
Dodd's Kidney Pills tbat I can recommend them,to others."
Here is a case ot the longest possible
standing. But Dodd'a Kidney Pills
will sure cure It. Why? Because uric
acid ln the blood Is the cause of rheumatism, and Dodd's Kidney Pills take
the urio acid out of the blood by making the kidneys do their proper work.'
"Come now," persisted the lawyer,

Scarcely a day passes but fresh
proof is offered of the wonderful
power of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills over
disease. In many ot these caBes relief and new health comes to the sufferer after the best efforts of medical
men bad been ln vain. One such case
Is that ot Mrs. D. M. Ritchie, of Gait,
Ont.. who writes:—"I feel lt my duty
to let otlier people know what Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have done tor me.
I was taken sick first in May, 1910,
with rheumatism. Treatment at home
having failed me I went to Grace Hospital, Detroit, where I remained for
some weeks, bnt Instead ot Improving
I became absolutely helpless, as if
trom paralysis, and could not move
band or foot. I was under the heavy
expense of a trained nurse, and the
best of medical treatment, but seemed to be growing worse. -Finally about
the middle, of July my husband decided to briag me home to Gait, where
I remained under medical treatment,
and with a nurse constantly attending me until October, when I took a
further turn for the worse. Then the
doctor told my husband it was only
a matter of a few weeks, as I could
not possibly get better, Up to this
time over six hundred dollara had
been spent for medical and hospital
treatment. In this condition, with
hope abandoned, my husband saw a
testimonial in a local newspaper ot a
cure of paralysis through the use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I decided at once to try them. In a few
weeks there was a little Improvement,
and from that time on each day allowed some change for the better, I can
now (March 1911) walk all about tho
house, do up my room, wash the dishes and sew and mend, but am still a
little shakey, but am looking for tbe
fullest cure, as I feel myself growing
stronger dally. I give tbe full credit
to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for I teel
they are an Instrument under Provi
dence given to the benefit of suffering humanity."
Writing again under the date ot
August 16th, 1911, Mrs. Ritchie says:
"Ab to.my general health I can say
that I have not felt so well ln years.
My stomach Is ln the beet of condition and I can eat things I have not
eaten tor years'. I can walk quite
well, but use my.cane when I go out,
as I have not. quite confidence in myself yet But if you had seen me when
I started to Uke Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, you would realize what a miracle
they have worked In my case. All
that I have stated is absolutely true,
and I may add tbat the pills have cured my husband of kidney trouble that
other medicines seem to have no effect upon, tor wblcb we are both
Again under the date of January 18,
1912, Mrs. Ritchie says: "1 am folly
recovered and able to do all my housework. I shall always recommend Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills and trust some
sufferer will receive as much benefit
by reading this aB I did through a
faithful use ot tho pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure such
apparently hopeless cases as Mrs.
Ritchie's because they make new, rich
red blood, which feeds the starved, overworked nerves, and gives tone and
strength to every organ ln the body.
No sufferer from paralysis, locomotor
ataxia. St. Vltua dauce or any nervous
disorders can afford to neglect Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, tho great blood
builder and nerve tonic, which hnve
more remarkable euros to their credit
than any other medicine in the world.

tbe Grnnd Forks Agricultural association addressed the board in regard to the city granting certain privilege., to tl e association. Fred Clark
ajted as spokesman for the delega
tion. He aaid the association intended to erect a costly and. hand-
grounds this summer, and the mem
bers of the association felt that the
city sbould assist the enterprise tp
the extent of extending the water
mains to the grounds for fire protection and furnishihg free lights dur- j
ing the fair. Nearly all the.alder-;
men -appeared to lie inclined to
think that lhe -request was a reasonable one, but the chairman of the
finance committee stated that no
definite decision could be made until the estimates had been considered. Incidentally he stated that
thero was a probability that the assessment would have to be raised 5
mills this year. Aid. Downey attacked the idea of assisting nn enter
prise located outside* the city
limits, and Aid. Morrison was
Aid. Downey introduced the
mayor's salary bylaw, and Aid.
Davis introduced the aldermen's
salary bylaw.
The cement sidewalk bylaw was
reconsidered and finally passed.

It Has Been Proved That Microbes Cause Baldness
Professor Unna of Hamburg, Ger
many, and Dr. Sabouraml the leaciins;
French dermatologist, discovered that
a microbe cause baldness. Their*'
theory has time and again been amply verified through research experiments carried on under the observation of eminent scientists. This mi-j
crobe lodges in the Sebum, which, is
the natural hair oil, and when permitted to flourish it destroys the hair
follicles and in time the pores entirely
close, and the scalp gradually takes on
a shiny appearance. When this hivp- j
pens there is no hope of the growth
of hair being revived,
We have a remedy which will, we
honestly beliove,' remove dandruff, exterminate the microbe, promote good
circulation in the scalp and around
the hair roots, tighten and revitalize
the hair roots, and overcome .baldness,
so long as there is any life left in the
hair roots. ,
We back up this statement with
ourown personal guarantee that- this
remedy called Rexall "9,'t" Hair
Tfnic will be supplied free of all cost
to the user if it fails to do as we state, j
It will frequently help to restore
gray and faded hail to its original
' color, providing loss of color has been '
caused by disease; yet it is in no sense
a dye. Uexall "1)3" Hair Tonic accomplishes these results by aiding in
making every hair root, follicle, and
pigment glaiid strong and active, and
by stimulating a natural flow of coloring pigment throughout the hair
We exact no obligations or promises—we simply ask you to give Rexall "93" Hair Tonic a thorough trial
and if not satisfied tell us and we will
refund the money you paid us for it.
Two sices, prizes 50 cents and $1.00.

Liberals' Future Is Bright
Expressing the greatest confidence
in the future of the Liberal cause in
British Columbia, H. C. Brewster,
former member of the provincial leg
islature from. Alberni, has .outlined
part of the program which is to be
carried out.
"The main" thing for u:_ to do,"
says Mr. Brewster, "is to get a strong
organization tind carry on the campaign of education which was «o ably
begun before the election. Far from
being downhearted at the results of
that election, I think- we should be
mightily pleased with the vote given
to the Liberals in those riding* where
the question" of the expenditure of
money-on public works did not enter
into the campaign.''
.Mr, Brewster explains this remark
by saying that he mgans such- cities
as Vancouver and Victoria, where the
voters do not have lo depend on road
and other improvements for part of
their livelihood,
"But the main necessity at the
present moment is a strong organization," says Mr, Brewster, "and plans
for this oiganization are well under
way. The first step will be taken at
the Liberal convention in Vancouver
next Thursday, aud the campaign will
be unceasing to bring tha Liberals of
the province together.. The powerful
Tory machine had been responsible
for the Conservative victory in ths
late election, and the only way in
which the Liberals can cope with the
situatiou iii by means of a strong organization of their owii."
That tliere is a better Liberal spirit
iu British Columbia than ever before,
is the opinion of Mr. Brewster, who
says that-the recent defeat has been
the means of bringing the party together to fight iu the common cause.
"They are beginning to realize that
the fight is in the cause of Liberalism,
ahd not iii any hope of gain," he says.
A Venal Press
The British Columbia press is
prostituted, bought or subsidized to
the extent of over $40,000 yearly
Imagine the government advertising
in every jerkwater weekly in British
Columbia for architects to design the
univrsity. Yet hundreds of dollars
were spent by the government adver
tising in tho little country weeklies
for plan* for the pronincial university.
Nine-tenths of the rural press in this
province is in the pay of the provincial government and could uot exist
but for the pap freely distributed to
them hy a man who has nothihg ehe

Member  of  the  Family---A   Daily
Study for^Old and Young
'PHK Family Herald and Weekly Slur of Montreal, acknowledged to be
1 the greatest und bent family and farm paper on (he continent, has on
many occasions given ils readers moil delightful premjum picture,
but Ihis sencon they have secured what is beyond any quefition of doubt
the best picture over olTered newspaper reader., it is entitled "Home
Ann in" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation. e
"Laddie," a collio dug, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winners
ot many prizes at dog snows, the pride of lho family and neighborhood,
lias been stolen, and after many days' absence lie escapes one night from
his caplnr and returns homo on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he. broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to thc door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries uf joy
whirih bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting bis
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast wilh a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walls of any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Klslcy, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
" The beautiful picture "Horns Again" on heavy plate paper 22x2!)
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
The Hun and Family Herald and Weekly Star for 1012.
The small sum of $1.50 will secure the two papers for a full year in-
eiuding-a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone i.s
easily worth a two dollar bill. In fact it could not he bought at that price.
Every home in the Boundary should get the big *?1.50 worth this

mier McBride and all his works. The
very fountains of public opinion in
British Columbia are rotten with
gaat't. Yet the World and News-
Advertiser will have it that the electorate in British Columbia is a free,

Saturday Sunset*. t
H. E. Foster, M.P.t1. fur Columbia, who defeated the government candidate, H. O. Parsons, probably owes
his election to the votes of the Liberals in that constituency, as he was
pledged to retire in case a Grit en
tered the field. The threat made by
Premier McBride that unless thu constituency re-elected the party ciuiili
date it would be left without representation in tho government caucus
frightened neither the electors nor
Mr. Foster. Of course tie govern
ment organs now announce that Mr
Foster is au out-aml out supporter of
the government While exactly such
a situation may develop when the
legislature meets, it may be tal e i for
the present as the easiest discoverable
method by which the all-powerful premier is rescued from an awkward pie
dicauten'. The occasional sputtering
signs of independence in the electorate
are but the cloud which, though
■'small us a man's hand," presage tie
coining storm. The old Hebrew prophet sent his paa« tai "Tell AhaiT to

Overeating Is the great cause ot
liver troubles, biliousness and constipation. The digestive system becom-
es clogged with poisonous waste matter, the liver fails and then follow
kidney disorders ot the most painful
and fatal form, such as rheumatism,
Bright's dtseaBO and dropsy.
The beginning Is almost Invariably
with the liver and should be overcome
• by the prompt use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills before serious disease
is developed.
An occasional dose ot Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills when the liver gets

will keep the whole digestive system
in healthy working order.
Hundreds of thousands of people
have found this out by their own experience and would not think of being

What mother cannot remember the
times of her childhood when the castor oil bottle was brought into uae
—the dread with which she looked
forward to a dose ot It—tlie fight she
put up when forced to take lt. Surely
all mothers will be glad to spare their
little ones this dlscomfort-Hhis dread.
Modern science has banished the bad
Anelllng, evll-t»»ting, griping castor
oil and given ln its place a modern
remedy—a remedy pleasant to take,
mild, though thorough in action, absolutely harmless and something the
little one won't dreed. That medicine
is Baby's Own Tablets—the only medicine used by thousands of mothers of
little ones—the medicine that has
forced castor oil and "soothing" syrups out ot the home and has taken
their place to bring health to baby and
Joy to the parents. Tho Tablets are
sold by medicine dealers or by mall
at 25 cents a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

Jim Jimison was a hard drinker up
Ithaca way. One evening Jim stopped
at the i tavern for a dram, tossed it
oft and departed calmly; but after he
was gone the tavern-keeper discovered
that in place of applejack, he had glv.
en him a drink out of the sulphuric
add bottle that was kept to clean the
verdigris off the black taps. The tav.
em-keeper couldn't sleep that night,
but tho next morning to his unspeakable relief, Jim dropped in for another dram before breakfast, apparently none tho .worse for his dose of
poison. "Jim," said the tavern-keeper, "what did you think of that applejack I sold you last night?"
"Oh, It was fine stuff," said Jim;
"good warniin' stuff. It only had one
fault. Every time I coughed It set my

French Soldiers' New Helmet.
M. Detalllo has reported to the
French War Office on the new
"casque" for the Infantry. He has reverted to a modification ot the- 16th
century helmet, known as the "Hour-
gulgnotto." It the new equipment is
adopted the French Infantryman will
wear in war a helmet of steel with
a ridge ot tsronzo over tho round of
Ihe head. The front and back will
bo Identical, so that it can be worn
cither way. At each aide Is a head
of a lion in bronze to fix the ends ot
the chin strap, and on the left side a
tricolor cockade Is used as an ornament.
The French authorities have not
observed that one of the first- things
that our men did ih South Africa was
to loso their heavy helmets and obtain, in the mysterious way soldiers
do these things, a' soft felt hat or a
cap. If, according to Gilbert, "that
man Is but an ass who fights in a
cuirass," equally foolish is the soldier
ot to-day who goes marching ln a
steel helmet weighing a couplo of

David Faircbild, M. 8c., In charge of
the department of foreign seed and
plant Introduction, department ot ag-,
riculture, writes in regard to the ac-,
comnanylng picture: |
"This mushroom, the dlctyophora.
or 'net bearer,' grows in tbe Jungles of
Java, where it frequently attains s
helgbt of six or eight Inches. 1 tried'
to photograph It by time exposure, bu»
failed, for tbe reason that lt grew so
rapidly during the exposure that the
outlines were blurred, on tbe plate.
Tbe accompanying photograph was ac*
cordlngly taken by 'quick exposure,' almost a snapshot" j
This statement was sent to. Professor Charles H. Pack, Albany, N. Tj
aa expert on fungous growths, and be
replies: I
"The Inquiry concerning tbe rapidity
ef development of the phallold fungus
figured therein Is a perfectly natural'
one; for this marvelous growth seem*
at flrst thought too great fo be credible. Nevertheless these fungi grow-
very rapidly wben they bave begun,
to elongate their stem*. In Mr. O. O.
Lloyd's Mycologlcal Notes be illustrates pbotograpblrall} tbe development ht Phallus aurahtlncus. which tn
one minute lengthened Its item from
six line* to twenty-one lines. The actual increase In length was fifteen
lines, or one and one-quarter Inches,
ln one minute. This Is not tbe same
species as tbat called 'lhe dlctyophora' In your example, bnt It is a confirmation of the probable correctness of
tbe surprising statement made by Dr.
Faircblld."-St. Nicholas. '
Qame of Trades.
A Jolly little game fair children to
participate in of evenings after study,
bour is called "the trades" and 1»
played In tbe following manner:
Each participant chooses a trade,
which he exerclres in accordance with
the style of tbe trade. Tbe shoemaker
mends shoes, tbe carpenter saw*
boards, the painter paints * portrait,
the laundress wsshes linen In a tub.]
the cook atira a cake, the locksmith
hammers s lock, aad tbe spinner turns
a wheel.
One of the party ts chosen ** leader.
Tben all get Into n circle, either lifting or standing, and begin exercising
according to their individual vocatlons.1
Wben tbe leader tires of bis or ber
trade be or sbe quickly takes np thst
of tbe boy or girl seated to the right1
and Instantly all leave off their own
trade and begin Imitating tbe movements of the right band neighbor.
This throws tbe leadership to the player seated at tbe original leader's left,
wbo tskes up tbe trade abnndoaed by,
tbe flrst leader. If one of the player*
makes a mistake be must pay a forfeit.
