A very small aud informal meeting, called to bear Miss Dorothy
Davis give an address on the question of votes for women, took place
on Monday evening in tbe schoolroom behind tbe Methodist church,
kindly leul for tbe purpose.
Mrs. Ernest Miller luuk the chair,
aod Miss Davis very briefly out
lined tbe policy of lbe British Columbia Political Equality league and
tbe reasons why women should bave
tbe parliamentary vote.

en irely a Bntisb Columbia one.
In tbe course of her tour sbe bas
organised branches of it in every
place wbere she bas stayed, witb tbe
exception of Graud Forks, where
tbe interest shown was not sufficient to make a branch possible.
Tbe movement bas received tbe
support of men and women of every
shade sf political and religious
opinion -throughout tbe province,
and it is hoped that perhaps later
Grand Forks, too, may organise a
public meeting for tbe purpose of
seriously considering this vital question.

and 10 feet deep from Portland,
Maine, to Portland, Oregon.
The Panama canal excavated material would build a Chinese wall
from New York to San Francisco.
The Chinese wall is 1500 miles long.

Tbe new members will take possession as soon as stock-taking, wbich

Better Than the Best
While it is generally admitted
lhat The Family Herald and Weekly
Star of Montreal is the best family
and farmer's weakly paper printed,
the Publishers are determined to
! mnke it still better. They are sparing no expense to give their subscribers of 1913 bigger value tban
ever. Their beautiful picture,
"Mother's Treasures," is a delightful subject for the home and it is
safe to aay that no one who receives
a copy would part with it for double
the money.
No mistake can he made in sending one dollar for that great weekly
puper for 1913. Every subscriber
gets the picture, "Mother's Treasures," size 23 hy 29 inches, free, lt
is the biggest dollar's worth offered

A Pair pf   Them
At a recent party given at the
lountry house of a well-known artist,
al which many distinguished men of
letters and persons high "socially and
in professional life were present, a
certain social leader of Chicago had
been invited in company with her husband.
The lady itl question had come into
her social position of late years due
lo her husband's good luck ill cleaning up a fortune by cornering some
commodity at a time when prices were
high and th- demand was large.
Her early life had not been wasted
as sho had once put It, on tedious
text bonks, though she posed In her
home town as a critic and connoisseur
of all that 's best In modern liters-
line, and lent ber name and subscribed freely to every movement on foot
that had as It basis something connected with culture, thereby earning
Ihe reputation of being a patron of
the arts and sciences.
Tlie dinner had progressed favorably, and the conversation turned toward l.teratnre, sculpture, art, nnd
kindred subjects, in which all but the
'ndy in question took p£>rt.
Noliciim ber seeming discomfort, the
host, to make her feel more at ease
asked her:        *
Do you care for Botticelli, Mrs.
No, she answered; to tell the truth
1 never did care for those Italian
Her husband, noticing the subdued
l.rins about the table, rushed to his
wife's rescue, and, leaning over, whispered the information:
Botticelli, my dear, is not a wine;
Jt's a cheese.
Memory Device
The first mechanical apparatus intended to prevent the busy man from
furscttlng iiaj of h-s engagements has
iust. been devised by a New York inventor, and is described, with illustration tn the Sepember Popular Mechanics Magazine
The new memory device is operated
by a large spring, released at predetermined Intervals by an ordinary
It Is a desk fixture which keeps accurate time, and occupies a desk
space only din. ln height and 8In.
It has the appearance of a desk-
clock with three sets of pigeon-holes,
one series for the months of the year,
another for the dayfe of the month,
and the third for each quarter of on
aotir of he day.
A busy professional or business man
wishing to be reminded of something
he Is to do ln the future, makes a
i-.einorandum of it on a card and drops
it Into the case ln the pigeon-hole set
aside for that purpose.
No matter whether the engagement
Is for a year ahead, or for the next
fifteen minutes, a bell rings when that
particular time comes and a card automatically drops down before hiin.
The Rev. Henry Ward Beeeher was
a great wit. and now and then he was
favored with a written protest from
one of his hearers, which he would
read to his congregation and then criticize.    One Sunday morning he said:
I have to call your attention to a
strange communication that has lust
reached me. It Is half a sheet of
no*e paper on which nothing has been
written but the word Fool. It ISflno
uncommon thing for the writer of a
letter to forget to sign his name, but
this ls the flrst time I have ever
known a man tn slrn his name and
forget lo write the letter.

Children Sold Into Slavery
Did you know that the selling of
children Into actual slavery still exists
as a recognized institution In a civilized community?
The slavery referred to Is a practice
at Frledrlchshafen, ou the Lake ot
Constance, where there ls an annual
market for children. They are sold
outright by their parents to peasant
farmers from Wurtemberg, Baden, and
Bavaria, for a season's work on tho
tarms. Here are seen boys and
girls from eleven years of age to sixteen— children, for thc most part, of
lyrolese woodsmen who are driven
by sheer destitution to send their offspring to work for the farmers and receive the money for them.
The children are gathered together
under the care of a priest and taken
to the market, where they are put up
at auction and Inspected by prospective purchasers like so many cattle.
This year 125 boys and twenty girls
were sold. Owing to the demand
the market was Strong; a sturdy lad
of sixteeu, able to swing the scythe
all day, brought as much as 570. Some
of the older girls netted their parents
$60, while some of the tinier went for
The sale is tragedy with a high flavor of the dramatic, for it is well
known by the parents that many of
the children will not come back ln the
winter, when they are. supposed to
return home They will have succumbed to overwork'and underfeeding
and abusive treatment and home sickness. Every year many die off. The
priests try t'j control the danger by a;
black list against farmers iu whose'
liands slaves have died, but each year
more die.
The practice is the survival of an
ancient custom.
Switzerland'a Eagles
The latter-day tourist Is very exacting, and it appears from reports made
by guides and hotel-keepers in Switzerland that one of the points insisted
upon by visitors ls that they should
be able to see eagles soaring above
the mountain-tops and lakes of that
picturesque playground ot the globetrotter.
Eagles, however, are not of an ac-
•ommodating nature, and cannot easily be furnished on demand, the only-
way to secure their lordly presence
being to leave them to their own devices, and, above all, not to Interfere
with their predatory propensities by
untimely rifle bullets or with their
domestic arrangements by stealing
their eggs.
Consequently the Helvetian Government has resolved to constitute Itself
the official protector of any eagles
wbich may deign to choose that country for their residence, and the national gamekeepers in charge of the valleys of Muotta, Sihl, and Blsls, which
are the favorite hunting grounds of
the royal birds, have the strictest instructions to watch over their comfort . They are neither to be trapped nor shot at, and the Treasury undertakes to pay for all damages committed by the kings of the air. The
flrst bill has already come ln for fourteen lambs, four sheep, and one cat—
'ota! $40; but history sayeth not how
long a period this list covers, nor for
how many eagles.
The decision of the Government
will certainly be approved by all blrd-
_o"e-*>, and flrst and foremost by the
eagles themselves, who may be ex-
tect'-d very nulckly to And out the
lavors they .enjoy and to Invite their
persecuted brethren from north, south
and east to share ln the paternal protection of Helvetia.
In sreaking of the two new steamships the "Empress of Russia" and
the "Empress of Asia," which the Canadian Pacific Railway is building for
service on the Pacific Ocean between
Canada and the Orient, a C.P.R. official remarked yesterday that he felt
justified in saying that the two new
boats would bo tho safest vessels
"In preparing the plans for the new
"Empresses," he remarked, "we took
, articular care to make provision for
all exigencies, and as a result the
boats ape as near to being unsinkable
as can be built. The new "Empresses" are being built with double
bottoms and watertight compartments, the latter beijig numerous and
closely placed. Ordinarily, if a ship
s designed to float with only two compartments flooded, a sufficient margin
of safet? ■ Is thought to have
been allowed, but in the cases of the
new "Empress of Russia" and "Empress of Asia," should four compartments be flooded they will still Host,
'n the matter of safety, these are the
first vessels built to fulfill these conditions."
It was also stated that the new
steamships would be equipped with all
the other latest devices making for
safety, such as wireless apparatus.
search lights, submarine signals, and
from the very moment they are assembled, the members of the crews
will be trained intho life saving, fire,
and other drills, which are a feature
of all this Company's steamships.

Chinese Logic
A tourist, in pricing tea ln a Chinese store ln Shanghai, was surprised
to find that he could purchase live
pounds of a certain kind of tea for
two dollars, but that if he bought ten
pounds the price would be five dollars.
The tourist argued with the Chinaman
that such an arrangement was ridiculous, but the proprietor of the store
insisted that logl-i was on his side.
More buy, more rich. More rich,
more can pay, he explained.

More About
The Loading Platform
The present generation of Western farmers will never know the
difficulties anl vexations experienced by their predecessors In the
earlier years when no one coul :l get a carload of grain shipped in
bulk except by loading It through an elevator The system forced
the majority of farmers to sell t'jeir grain to the elevator owners
at arbitrary prices, and oft times to submit to heavy, dockage and
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now, however,
the distribution of cars as fixed hy the Grain Act. and the use of the
loading platform, provide faclllihs which enable the farmer to secure
satisfactory treatment ln the disposal of his grain, and the hlghW
market prices at time of sale. Kvery farmer therefore, should more
• and more endeavor to use the loading plattorm Ii shipping bis grain
to the terminal elevators, lt is the sateguard of the farmers' freedom In disposing ot bis grain to Ihe best advantage for himself. It
farmers refrain from using the loading platform freely, It might result in its being done away with, because railway companies and
elevator owners are strongly opposed to it. lt Is easy to understand
why elevator people desire the loading platform abolished. The railway people on their part say it delays the loading of cars and helps to
ensure car shortage. This we know tj he nonsense, because frequently af'er cars are loaded, whether w'th grain, coal, lumber, or
other merchandise, they are sld. tracked for days and even weeks
Instead ot being promptly moved forward to destination. It ls engine
shortage and shortage ot competent train men that mostly causes
grain blot-kales on railways and not lack of cars. Let every farmer .
therefore, do all he can to use the loading plattorm and become an Independent shipper. In subsej ient advertisements we will state in
detail the savings and other advantages of 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 the grading at time cars
are Inspected, secure H.e highest prices at time of sale and make
prompt ret-ir-is when sold. Write us for shipping Instructions and

Postage Stamps Under Escort
A few years ago a small procession
triumphantly escorted a sergeant carrying two postage stamps. The
story of the latter Is interesting. The
sergeant, belonging to the French
contingent of the troops of occupation
arrived In Crete with a young Creole
wife, whom he had married while he
was serving In a French colony. She
brought him no dower in money, but
a handsome marriage portion all the
same, consisting of two postage
stamps. These are rare specimens
of Mauritian Issues, and have been
estimated by experts as worth $8000.
The sergeant was told tbat their
value would Increase, and Instead of
selling them he had them framed and
placed his treasure in a Cretan bank.
As the time was approaching for the
departure of the troops of occupation
he went to the bank with his wife to
.withdraw his deposit, and his comrades formed a procession to escort
the couple carrying homo their fortune in two postage stamps.
Trial It Expansive.—To those who
suffer from dyspepsia, Indigestion,
lheumatlsm or any aliment arising
irom derangement of the digestive
system, a trial of Parmelees's Vegetable Pills Is recommended, should the
sufferer be tie unacquainted with them.
The trial will be inexpensive and the
result will be another enstomer for
[his excellent medicine. So effective
is their action that many cures can
certainly be traced to their use where
ether pills have proved Ineffective.

If I put Ihe handle to Full, will sbo

Mr. R. I.. Borden has always
shown a sensitiveness where his personal honor is concerned worthy of
the best traditions of British governmenl. In fact, Canada has ever been
fortunate in the character of the men
who have occupied the position of
the first minister. Nut only have
they avoided personal wrongdoing,
but they hive avoided, as a rule,
even the appearance of it, or of profiting by the wrongdoing of others,
direct agents or self appointed ones.
In view of tbis tradition of Canadian
statesmen, which is a far older tra-
d tion of Brilish statesineiisliip, Mr
Borden will find it difficult to oppose the coming parliamentary motion for an investigation into the
circumstances surrounding the re
cent federal bye-election in Macdonald, Manitoba. Mr. Borden and
his party profited by that election.
He and his party profited in pestige,
profited in numerical strength and

From the recent criticisms of the
Leniiftix Act by various Canadian
labor bodies, it becomes clear that
no act is without honor suve in its
own country. The act referred to
has wide fame beyond Canada's border, but in its actual working out
tbere seems to be some room for improvement, The matter requires
equally serious consideration. The
importance of satisfying the demands of labor, if they are just, is
beyond both question and computation, but it is not necessary to repeal the act in order to accomplish
this.—Victoria Times.

Military Funeral
There arrived by tbe Okanagan
on Friday the body of J. A. Coryell,
P.L.S., brother-in law of E. Weddell,
to be interred beside his mother,
brother and sister in the Kelewna
cemetery. The remains were accompanied by tbe widow of the deceased and hy his brother, Frank
- Away from this district for the
greater part of the past eightti.ii
years, the late Mr. Coryell was intimately known only to a few of the
old timers, but in the early nineties
he took a large share in the development work of the Okanagan, surveying many of the large ranches into
small holdings and laying out tbe
townsite of Kelowna. From about
1894 lo 1900 be resided in the Boundary district, leaving to serve bis
country in South Africa witb one of
the C. M. R. contingents. He flaw
some hard fighting against Delarey,
and after the war he spent a number
of years in British East Africa and
Msdagasuar in connection princi
pally with the exploration of petro
leum-bearing lands. His health
having become impaired, he returned to British Columbia three or four
years ago, and appeared to recuperate, but he contracted tuberculosis as
the result of hardships suffered on
survey work in tbe Fort George district, and removal to Arizona, where
he died, failed to stay its ravages
He was a whole souled, generous
man, an embodiment of the liberal,
tolerant western spirit, and bis
death while still in the prime of life
is deeply regretted by friends far
and wide.
Mr. Coryell was a graduate of the
Royal Military college, Kingston,
Out., and had served in the North
west rebellion of 1885 as a member
of a corps of scouts, and thus, as a
veteran of two « ars, it was felt thai
a militacy funeral was his due.

Home of the 2000 ton per day Granby Copper Smelter
and sawmill now producing over 600,000 feet of lumber per month, both owned by the Granby Bay Con"
solidatod Mining, Smelting 4 Tower Co., Ltd., a corporation with  assets of over  seventeen  millions!
Granby Buy is going to be a Payroll Town.
And it is the kind of a town that is always "up
and doing." A conservative estimate places the
number of men to be employed at 1(1*1(1 and their
monthly payrollat about $100,000,without figuring
on any other Industi ies outside of the properties
and smelter of (lie Granby Co.
Grasp those facts!
Granhy Hay is in the very heart of a developed
abulously rich copper mining district.
Oranby Bay has a smelter owned by a formidable commercial Giant, the Granby Oompany.
Granby Bay will have an immense payroll
every mouth
Grimliy Bay must have a population of over
1000 people.
Granhy Bay is a seaport.
Granby Bay can produce copper cheaper than
in places where big profits are made from mining
and smelting.
Every lot in Granhy Bay is a gilt edged investment.
Only a few choice lots are being offered for sale in Granby Bay Townsite—and there is not much
doubt that they will be snapped up quickly. The prices are very low. To avoid disappointment
applications for lots should be made now. The Continental Trust Co., Ltd , of Prince Rupert, is acting
ai trustee for the property.     Fill out the coupon and mail today for full   particulars, maps  and   prices.
The mines at Granby Bay already have the stupendous total of 4,ou0,d(l0 tons of rich copper pre
"in sight," and the mining carried on in the winter of 1911-12 proved the wealth of lho properties
beyond jjuess work. The oro now in sight will
keep tho smelter busy 75 years. Think of it! And
this not taking into account various otlier adjoining properties, come under option to tue Granhy
Co. It is estimated that the Oranby Co. can pro
dune copper here for 2:1 cents a ton cheaper than
at its Grantl Forks smelter When the big smel
ter iB completed the total investment of the
Granhy Co here is expected to he nearly two
milliotis,and that over 1000 men will be employed
When you consider the fact that today two
hustling cities in British Columbia are almost sn
tirely supported by the payrolls of this company
—I'lioenix and Grand Forks—you can get an
idea what Granby Bay will he.
Granby Bay has a good deepwuter harbor, and
today the G. T. P. and C P. I. and tho Union
Steamship Company operate regular steamers to
this point.

For'some time ln Vienna street savings banks have been In vogue with

banks are an adaptation of the penny-

wishing to deposit a small sum drops
his money Into the slot. Instead of
receiving bon-bons or chocolate ln return, he gets a ticket for the coin deposited. The tickets are later honored on presentation at a Government

Ke Scored With the Report
Thero Is a story told of R. C. Hamilton, the once Glasgow Rangers' famous centre-forward, when his team
were playing a holiday match In the
North of Scotland. The Rangers'
team had a regular day out, as one
might say; all tho forwards scoring
with the exception of Hamilton. Under these circumstances the team unanimously selected Hamilton to write
an account of thc match, as his version would be the most unbiased.
They were a bit taken back to read
when the roport appeared In print,
to the effect that so-and-so scored
Koala for tho Rangers, the entire cred
it of which was due to the admirable
passing of Hamilton!

couldn't get any beneflt from the doctor's medicine, so finally ho ordered
mo to Btop drinking coffee, which I
(.Id. (Tea Ib just .as injurious because it contaius caffeine—the drug

"I drank hot waler while taking the
doctor's medicine, with some Improvement, then went back to coffee with
Iho same old trouble as before.
"A new servant girl told mo about
Poatum—said her folks used lt and
liked lt ln place of coffee. We got a
package but 1 told her I did not believe my husband would like lt, as he
was a great coffee drinker.
"To my surprlso he called for a
third cup, said It was "good stuff" and
wanted to know what lt was. We
have used Postum ever since and both
feel better than we have In years.
"My husband used to havo bad
spellB with his atomach and would be
sick throe or four days, during which
tlmo ho could not ent or drink anything. But since he gave up coffee
and took to Postum, he haB had no
more trouble, and we now fully believe It was all caused by coffee.
"I have not had any return of my
former troubles since drinking Postum, and fed better and can do more
work than ln the last ten years. We
tell everyone about It—some say they
tried it and did not like It.   I tell
hem It makes all the difference as to
how Its made. It should be made
