The irrigation meeting in the city
hall   on Tuesday evening was well
attended.  The business which came
up for consideration, however, was
of such a nature that it did   not
furnish much copy for the printer.
Nearly the entire evening was taken
with the consideration of the agreement  between the  Cascade Water,
Power & Light company   and  the
rancherB of the valley electric power.
James Rooke occupied the chair.and
J. D. Honsberger acted as secretary.
Objections were taken  to two or
three of the seventeen clauses of the
contract.   The meeting was unanimously of the opinion that Clause
5 should be altered bo as reduce   the
meter rent from 50 cents to 25 cents
per month, and tbat Clause 13, prohibiting  the  reselling of power by
consumers, should be eliminated.

(Continued.)
It was Gurdon's turn now to listen.
He leant forward in hie chair, his
whole attention concentrated upon the
figure oi the stranger, huudleu up in
the armchair at the little tub'e opposite. He toucheu Venner on the
arm, anil indicated the figure of the
man who hud sutfeied so cruelly in
some form or other.
"The plot thicKens,"' Venner murmured. "Upon my word, he seems to
know this Murk Fenwick as well as
1 do."
The mnimed crippled figure in the
armchair had dragged himseif almost
to his feet, with his powerful, muscular arm propping him against the
table. His wonderfully handsome
face was all broken and twisted up
with an expression of malignant fury.
He stood there fo- a moment or two
like a statue ot t'licontrollab.e passion, rigid, fixed, and motionless,
save for the iw'iching o' his face.
Then, graauully he uropped buck into
his cnair again, a nroken and huddled
heap, quivering from nead to loot
•with the pam caused by his recent
exertion. A moment later he took
from his pocket a silk shade, which
he proceeaed to tie over his eyes, as
if the light hurt h'iu. Watching his
every move with intense eagerness,
the two friends saw that he had also
tuKen 'roiu his pocket a snial., silver
case, about the tmue size as an or-
umury box of eafe'y matches. Indeed,
the cuse looked not unlike the silver
coverings for wood matches, which
are generally to be seen in well appointed households. Then, as if nothing interested h.m further, the cripple 1611111 back in his chair, and appeared to give himael' over entirely
to his enjoyment t the band. In all
probability no diner there besides
Vennoi and Guruon had noticed anything In the least out of the common.
"I.ow. this is very oramatic," Gurdon suid. "Here ie a melc-tlraina
uctua'ly taking place in a comedy
'set' 'ike this. I nm glad you will b»
in a position later on to gratify my
curiosity. I confess I should like to
learn something more about this Mar';
Fenwick, who does not appear to be
in the least like one's idea ot \m
prosu'c money spinner."
"He isn't," Venner sa'd grimly.
"Anything but thot. Why, three
years ago that man was as poor and
desperate as the most wretched outcast who walks e streets o* London
to-night. One thing you may be sure
of—wherever you u'ne from now till
your dying day, you wUl be under the
roof of no more diabolical scoundrel
than the creature who ca'ls himseh
Mark Fenwick."
There was a deep sote in Venner's
voice that did not fail to stimulate
Gurdon's curiositv. He g'.anced again at the millionaire, who appeared
to be talking in some foreign tongue
with his compan'on. The tall, fair
Kirl with the shining hair hnd her
back to the friende so that they could
not see her face ,and when she spoke
it was in a tone so low thut it was
not possible to catch anything more
than the sweetness of her voice.
"I wonder what she is doing with
him?" Gurdon s d. "At any rati
she Is English enough. I never naw
a woman with more thoroughbreH
oir.   She is looking this way."
Just for a momi nt thc girl turned
her head, and Venner caught a full
sight of her face, lt was only for an
instant; then the n.ir head was turn
etl again, and Hit: girl appeared to
resume her dinner, Venner Jumpe*'
from his chnlr and took three strides
across the room. He paused there as
if struggling to r- gain possession •'
himself; then he uropped into his
chair, shielding his face from the
light with his hands. Gurdon could
see that his eon-i anion hiul turned
to a ghastly grey. Veritably it wns r
night of surprints quick, drnmntic
surprises, pillowing dose upon one
another's heels.
"What, do yo" mean to toy you
know her, too?" flurdon whispered.
Venner looked with a strange
unsteady smile on his face. He appeared to be fighting very hard to regain his self-control.
"Indeed, I do know her," he said.
"My Irientl, you are going to get all
the surprises you wnnt. Whnt will
you say when 1 te'l you thnt the g'rl
who sits there utterly unconscious of
my presence, and deeming me to be
at the other end of the world, is no
less a person than—my own wife?"
CHAPTER III.
The Lost Mine.
Gurdon nodded thoughtfully. He
was trying to piece the puzzle together
in his mind, hut so fur without success. He was not in the least surprised to find that Venner had guess- i
ed correctly.
"You've got it evactly," he said.
"That is just whet the gruesome thing
is.   Whnt t'ons il all mean?"
By this time dinner had long heen
a thing of the past, and all the guests
had departed. Here antl there the
lights were turned down, leaving half
the mom in semi-darkness. It was
just the time  and  place for nn ex
change of confidences.
"How do you,know exactly what
was in that box?" Gurdon asked. "I
have read things of this kind before,
but they huve generally taken the
form of a warning previous to some
act of vengeance."
"As a matter of fact, this is something of the same kind," Venner said;
"though I am bound to say that my
guess was somewhat in lhe nature of
a shot. Still, putting two and two
together, I feit that I could not have
been far wrong. Since I have been
here this evening, I have begun to
form a pretty shrewd opinion as to
where Fenwick gets his money from."
"What shall we do with that box?"
Gurdon nsked.
"Leave it where it is, by all means.
You may depend upon it that Fenwick
will return for his lost property.
The prophecy came true quicker
than Gurdon had expected, for out
of the gloom there presently emerged
the yellow, sickly fnce of Mark Fenwick. He came in with a furtive air,
like some mean thief who is about to
tlo a shabby action. He was palpably
looking for something. He made a
gesture of disappointment when h
saw thuj the table where he hnd dined
was now stripped of everything except
the flowers. He did not seenj to sei
the other two men there at all. Vei
ner took the box from his companion's
hand, and advanced to Fenwick's side.
"I think you have lost something,
sir," he said coolly. "Permit me to
restore your property to you."
The millionaire gave a kind of howl
as he look"d at Venner. The noise
he made was ludicrously like that of
a child suffering from toothache. He
fairly grovelled at Venner's feet, but
ns far as the lntter's expression was
concerned the two might have met
for the first time. Just for a moment
Fenwick stood there, mopping his
slimy-yel'.ow face, himself a picture
of abject nvsery and despair.
"Well?" Venner said sharply. "Is
this little box yours, or not?"
"Oh, yes, oh yes," Fenwick whined.
"You know that perfectly well—I
mean, you must recognise—oh, I
don't know what I mean. The fact is.
I am really ill to-night. I hardly
know whnt I am doing. Thank you,
very much."
Fenwick (snatched the 'box from
Venner's fingers, and made hastily
for the door.
"I believe we ere allowed to smoke
in here after ten," Gurdon snid. "If
thnt is the case, why not have n cinar
together and c'iscuss the matter?
What I am anxious to know nt present is the inner meaning of the finger
in the-box."
There was no objection to a cigar
in tlie dining-room at this late hour,
and presently the two friends were
discussing their Murias together.
Venner began to sneak nt length.
"Perhaps it would be as well." he
se.itl, "to stick to the box business
first. You will remember, some three
years ago, my writing you to thc effect
that 1 wns troing to undertake u
journey through. Mexico. I don't sun-
pose I should have gone th"re at nil,
on'y I was attracted liy the notion
of possible adventures in that country, amongst the hills where, ut one
time, gold used to be found. There
wns no question whatever that gold
in large quantities used to be mined
ill the wild district where I had chosen to take up my headquarters. Practical engineers say that the gold 's
exhausted, but thut did not deter me
in the least.
"The first mun who put the iden
into my head was a half-caste Mexican, who had an extraordinary grip
on the history of his country, especially as far as legends and traditions
were concerned. He was u well-eduj
cated man, antl un exceedingly fascinating story-teller. It was he who
first gave me the history of whnt he
called the Four Finger Mine. It appears' that the mine had been discovered some century or more ago
by a Frenchman, who had settled
down in the country and married the
daughter of a kind of native chief.
The ori'.'inal founder of the mine was
a curious sort of mun, and was evidently possessed of strong miserly
tendencies. Most men in his position
wou'.d have gathered together a band
of workers, and simply exploited the
mine for all it was worth. However,
this man, Le Fenu, did nothing of
the kind. He kept hisi discovery an
absolute secret, and what mining was
to be done, he diil himself. I understand Dint he wns a man of fine
physique, antl that his disposition
Wits absolutely fearless. It was his
habit at certain seasons of the yenr
to en up to his mine, nntl there work
it for a month or two at a time, spending the rest of the year in the bosom
of his family. II is quite certain,
too, that he kept his secret, even from
his grown-up sons; for when he died,
they hail not the slightest idea of
the locality nf the mine, which fuel
I know from !,<» Fenu's tlescentlents.
"An<l now comes the interesting
pnrt of my story. Le Fenu went up
into the mountains early in May one
year, to put in his solitary two months
mining, ns usual. For, perhaps, the
first time in his life, he suffered from
a serous i'lnt'BS—some kind of fever,
I supnose, though he hnd just strength
of will enough lo get on the back of
a horse and ride as far ns the nearest
hacienda.
"Now, on this particular farm there
dwelt a Dutchman, who, I believe,
was called Vnn Fort. Whether or not
Le Fenu partially disclosed his secret in his delirium, will never nctuallv
be known. At any rate, Ifto or three
weeks Inter thn body was discovered
not very fnr nwny from the scene of
his mining nnerntinns, and from th ■
evidence obtainable, there was no
doubt in the world thnt he was foully
murdered, Justice in thot eountrv
walks with verv tnr-'v footsteps, ond
though there was little question who
the real murderer was, Van Fort was
never brought to justice. Perhaps
that was accounted for by the fact
'hat he seemed to be possessed of
more money than usual, and was thus
in a position to bribe the authorities.
"And now comes a further development. Soon after the death of Le
Fenu, it was noted that Van Fort
spent most of his time away from his
farm in the mountains, no doubt
prospecting for Le Fenu's mine.
Whether lie ever found it or not will
never be known. Please to bear in
mind the fact that for a coup'e of
centuries at least Le Fenu's mysterious proiy ty was known as the Four
Finger Mine. With this digression,
I will go on to speak further of Van
Fort's movements. To make a long
story short, from his last .journey to
the mountains he never returned. His
widow searched for him everywhere;
I have seen her—a big sullen woman,
with a cruel mouth and a heavy eye.
From what I have heard, I have not
the slightest doubt that it was she
who iiisp'red the murder of the
Frenchman.
"She had practically given up all
iden o' ever seeing her husband again;
when, one dark nnd stormy night, just
as she was preparing for bed, she heard
her husband outside, screaming for
assistance. From his tone he was evidently in some dire and deadly peril.
The woman was by no means devoid
of courage; she rushed out into the
night and searched fnr and near, but
no trace of Van Fort could be found,
nor did that imploring cry for assistance come again. But the next morning, on the doorstep lay a bleeding
forefinger, which t' e woman recognised as coming from her husband's
hand. To moke identity absolutely
certain, on the forefinger wns a ring
of native gold, which the Dutchman
always wore. Please to remember
once more that this mine was known
as the Four Flilg°r Mine."
Venner pnuscd just for a moment fo

Welsh by Extraction
One of the foremost lawvers in England is Lord Halsbury, who was Lord
Chancellor of the Balfour ministry.
A friend tells this story of his career
at the bar:—
He was once arguing a case on behalf of a Welshman, and showed
great knowledge of the principality
and its people.
"Come, come," said the judge at
last, "you know you cannot make
yourself out to be a Welshman."
"Perhaps not," replied the barrister, "but I have made a great deal
of money out of Welshmen in my
time."
"Well, then," replied the judge,
"suppose we call you a Welshman by
extraction?"

A Canadian editor asked for admission to Heaven.
"Can't let you in," said St. Peter,
"the record of your good deeds never

"But," said the editor, "the postal
authorities are to blame if you did not
receive your paper. Why, they would
not even allow it into the United
States without 62 cents postage per
year."
"Then you'll have to go to the other
rlace and fight it out," said St. Peter,
"the postal authorities are all down

DISFIGURED
. JOR LIFE!
Mothers Should Realize What)
Neglect of Skin-Troubles
May Mean to Children.
A lifetime ol disfigurement and suffering
often results from tbe neglect, In Infancy or
childhood, ol minor affections of the skin and
scalp. A mother overlooks a little rath or
attempts some simple treatment and In a
day, perhaps, tbe little one.Is covered with
severe eczema or a similar distressing eruption.   Then the struggle 'or a cure begins.
A multitude ot remedies are tried, doctor
alter doctor consulted and hospitals visited,
but too often the suffering extends, without
substantial relief, from days to weeks, weeks to
months and months to yean. Added to this la
the ever-present fear that tbe Itching, burning
and disfiguration will become chronic, marring future welfare and making life miserable.
In the prevention ot the simple skin troubles
Irom which all this suffering so often arises
and ln establishing a condition ot skin health
that makes eruptions Impossible, mothers are
assured that nothing is purer, sweeter or more
effective tban Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment. And greater still, tf possible, ia
tbe success of these simple household remedies
ln the treatment ot tbe severer skin affections
themselves. With the first warm bath with
Cuticura Soap and gentle application of
Cuticura Ointment, the Itching and burning
of eczema cease, the child falls Into a refreshing sleep, the mother rests and for thc first
time, possibly, in many weeks peace falls on
a distracted household. Frequently a single
cake of Cuticura Soap and boi of Cuticura
Ointment are sufficient.
Positive as la this statement, it Is Justified
by mora than thirty years of pronounced
success. To quote but a single Instance,
llobert Mann, of Proctor, Minnesota, says:
"Our boy was born In Toronto on Oct,
13, IMS, and when three months old a slight
rash appeared on his cheek. Wbat appeared
to be a water blister would form, when It
broke, matter would run out. starting new
blisters until his entire face, head and shoulders were a mass of scabs and vou could not
lee a particle of clear skin, we tried about
every advertised remedy without avail, Indeed some of them only added to his suffering
and one in particular, the Remedy,
almost out the Infant Into convulsions. The
family doctor prescribed for him and told us
to bathe the baby In buttermilk. This did
not do any good, so we took him to a hospital.
He was treated as an out-patient twice a week
and he got worse, If anything. We decided
that it could not be cured and must run Its
course and so we Just kept his arms bandiieed
to bis side to prevent his tearing his flesh.
We left Toronto and shortly after our arrival
In Duluth. theCutlcura Remedies were
recommended. Wa started using them In
May, 1906, and soon the cure was complete.
You would not tblnk he waa the same child
for Cuticura made his skin perfectly clear and
ho is entirely free from the skin disease. There
has been no return. We still use only Cuticura Soap for baby's bath."

Conditions of Employment and Living In B. C. Province.
"Undoubtedly there are excellent
opportunities tor the right type ol
female immisfant in British Columbia, but we have known nl many disappointments owing to the ignorance
of new arrivals as to the different
conditions which prevail in the province, as compared with other parts
of Canada, particularly in reeard to
domestic service." This statement
was made during an interview which
a representative of Canada had with
Mrs. Pemberton, nf Victoria, and the
Rev. Canon Beanlands. who was lor
so manv years a prominent resident
of the Pacific province.
Tt was pointed nut that, while the
Chinaman is extensively employed in
domestic service in British Columbia,
the native-born Canadian girl almost
invariably seeks work in an office, a
store, or a school, being able to pick
nnd choose an occupation which, because it would give her the greatest
nmount of leisure time in the even,
ines, seems most to her taste. Another point dwelt unon waa that in
the towns of Canada those families
which ore in a position to employ
female domestic servants, expect service as such, and not as lady-helps.
Frequently disappointment has been
occasioned becanse the new-comer has
heen led to believe that she will be
treated as "one nf the family." Tn
other eases, girls have gone out who
have been employed in those large
establishments which are so numerous in the Old Country, and of which
there are so few in Canada—rich
men's nouses where a number of servants are kept, eaoh one having some
defined duty to perform, which has
made her either incompetent or unwilling to discharge the duties of a
"general" servant.
A common cause of mutual dissatisfaction between mistress and maid
—in trivial matters almost amusing
—is, however, the inadantnbility ot
the newcomer to her different surroundings. Cases were quoted of
eirls who have always used this or
that British polish, and could not be
made to realize that a Canadian-made
article—one with a name to which
they were not occu«tomed—could per.
form the work. Occasionally, also,
there is disappointment in the matter
of wages, though as much as $15 a
month may be paid to even the
"raw" girl who really shows anxiety
to learn and willingness to work.
The opportunities lor such a girl to
rise and, frequently, to settle in a
rood home ol her own, are, it waa
specially emphasized, much greater
than in the older land.
In discussing the necessary expenditure as compared with earnings, aa
to which so much difference of opinion has been expressed, it was stated
that in British CoNmbia, without
doubt, clothing is about 60 per cen).
more costly, and the making of
dresses by local dressmakers is probably twice as dear as in England. Cotton goods and underwear are, however, not any more, expensive, but
sometimes cheaper, than "at home."
"The general impression," said Canon
Beanlands. "is. I think, strongly in
favor pi the lusher wages as balanced
against the higher price of commodities; there is a larger margin for saving or spending."
As regards openings for school
teachers, typists, or stenographers,
and shops ot office workers of any
kind, the local supply is considered
quite adequate to the demand. Another point drawn attention to was
the entirely different conditions existing in cities like Vancouver or Victoria Irom those in the country districts on the mainland or islands.
Probably no province has so many
people directly from the United King,
dom engaged in fruit-farming, ranch-
inc. etc., who wouid welcome the
right sort ol female help in their
homes, and would value the addition to the family of those who could
join socially as well as helpfully in
their circle, in fact, be true "lady
helps."
Those who desire more detailed information recording the existing
openings in British Columbia might
communicate with the Secretary of
the Young Women's Christian Association in Vancouver, in connection
with which there is a committee
which looks after new arrivals, and
a hostel where a certain number can
be boarded while arranging tor a
situation. The British Women's Eml.
gration Society, which has its offices
in the Imperial Institute, London,
will aend out a personally conducted
party of young women in March.

ON THE VERGE OF
A BREAKDOWN
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills the
Only Hope for Weakened
Nervous People
This warning will be read by thousands of people who only just succeed
in getting through the day's work
without a breakdown. If you feel always tired out, have but little appetite, and a poor digestion, cannot
sleep well, suffer from headaches,
backaches and nervousness, it may
mean that you ore on the verge of a
serious breakdown.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure weak
nervous, troubled men and women because of their direct action on the
blood. Every dose of these Pills helps
to make new, rich blood, which tones
the vital organs, strengthens the
nerves and brings renewed health
and strength. Mr. Geo. Johnson, of
Lequille, N.S,, suffered for some years
as a result of ove' work and strain,
but found no help for his condition
until he began the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Mr. Johnson says:
—"While working on a railway handling heavy ties I hurt my back and
had to give up work. Later I was able
to do light work, but for about six
years 1 suffered from dreadful pains
in the bock and down my legs. This
condition became aggravated by indigestion and chronic constipation, and
my life was one of constant misery.
During tliose years I was treated by
different doctors, but did not get any
help. One day a friend urged me to
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
proved his faith in them by presenting
me with a box. It was more to please
him than from any belief that they
would be of service to me that I began taking the Pills. Before tlie box
wos finished, however, they seemed to
be helping me; the pains in my back
and legs grew less intense and the
bloating in my stomach, caused by
the indigestion disappeared. I continued taking the Pills until I had
used over a d07.cn boxes, when I found
myself fully restoreJ to my former
health. I am now able to do heavy
farm work, and for the past yeor have
not lost a dny, or hnd the least' symptom of my former troubles, and I attribute it entirely to the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills nre sold by
all medicine dealers or may be had by
mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes
for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams'

Pains That Make Misery.
A Talk With Our Lady Readers.
Have you ever noticed how miserable and unhappy the little pains and
aches make one? A stinging cut, badly chapped hands, a nasty burn, a
sore foot, a poisoned flnger—none of
them wounds or ailments ever likely
to cause serious trouble, which come
to every woman—and man, too—ond
are Just sufficient to take the edge off
one s temper and give one a "grouch."
Zam-Buk is just the thing at such
times. As soon as you put it on to
a sore, a cut, a burn, or any skin injury, it stops the pain, and the smarting and starts up healing. Don't
make the mistake that because Zam-
Buk is so widely used by medical
men, by nurses, and for serious skin
diseases and accidents, that it is only
for serious cases. Keep it handy and
use it immediately you get some trivial injury or have some little sore.
Mrs. Chas. H. Barrett, Harmony
Road, Truro, N.S., says: "I had an
ingrowing toe nail, which caused me
acute agony. Sometimes the pain was
so severe I could not sleep. It became
so bad that I feared blood-poisoning
had set in. I was advised to try Zam-
Buk and bound up the sore toe with
it. In a few days it wos much easier,
and I continued the treatment. The
result is that today the toe is sound
nnd I have no more trouble with it.
We always keep Zam-Buk in our
house, and I would strongly recommend it to every housewife."
Zam-Buk is just the thing, too, for
the little ones. Pure in its composition, and herbal in nature, it is suitable for the most delicate skin. It
also cures piles, eczema, varicose ulcers, cold sores, abscesses, blood poisoning, ring-worm, and all similar
skin diseases. Sold everywhere at 50c
a box, or post free from Zam-Buk Co.,
Toronto, upon receipt of price.
The greatest factor in sending up

FRIDAY, MARCH 17,  Hill
Thk city clerk has rendered the
corporation u valuable service by
making a thorough examination of
the water tank, and suggesting it
practicable scheme for rebuilding
the same at a modertte cost. Every
one who has inspected the tank during the past year has reported it to
he in a dungeious condition. Taking
for granted that they are right, the
city is not only liable to he cut of
from lire protection at any moment.
hut the people living beneath it are
in danger of serious damage in ' the
event of tbe collapse of tbe tank. It
is therefore apparent tbat action to
have it rebuilt cannot be taken too
soon.
Thk state of affairs in the famine
zone of China is pitiable, the daily
deaths from starvation being appalling. The matter was brought to
the attention of the city counoil by
the local clergy on Monday night,
and a way of rendering assistance
was devised. Citizens who are
charitably inclined should contribute their mite. Donations may be
left either with'the city clerk or at
the postoffice cigar store.
British Columbia now has a
minister of railways. What his
duties will be is not transparent at
first glance, as it is generally understood that Canadian railways are
under fedeial jurisdiction. Perhaps
the dispatches in tbe daily papers
furnish^ the key to the problem.
They state that the minister is to
have a large oflice stuff. There is
doubtless a horde of officeseekers
yet unprovided for in this province.
Mini, years ago the city council had under consideration a plan
for putting in a subway under the
C.P,K. tracks at Winnipeg avenue.
At that time the railway company
expressed a willingness to co-operate
with the city. If it is still similarly
inclined, it should be a good time to
do a little permanent improvement
work here this summer.
The Fruit, Packiug School
The fruit packing opened in the
rooms ahove Morrison's jewelry
store, on Bridge street, on Wednesday morning, and two sessions per
day are being held. The morning
sessions commence at 9:30 and the
afternoon sessions nt 2:00. The
school will end next Tuesday, the
couise consisting uf twelve lessons
of two and one-hulf hours each.
James Berkley, of the Okanagan
Fruit union, is thc instructor, and
the parties taking lessons speak in
complimentary terms of nis qualifications for the position he holds.
A large number of interested fruit
growers are daily attracted to the
rooms. The pupils have already
attained a high degree of efficiency,
and it is safe to predict lhat the
fruit shipped from this valley next
full will be better packed than it has
been in any previous year. The
school is being held here under the
auspices of the Grnnd Forks Fartr
ere' institute, the department of
agriculture furnishing the instructor.
The   parties  taking lessons are:
C. Meggitt, Mr. and Mrs. Percy Andrews, Mrs. Symes, T. Rooke,  Miss
Jewell, H. Burr, C.  C.  Heaven, C.
Hesse, C. McAdam, P.  H.  Donaldson, George Traunweiser and P. Me-

It is quite probable that one of
reasons why member of the provincial government are straining overy
effort to misinterpret the provisions
of the reciprocal trade treaty is, that
they realize that if it is ratified and
tested its popularity might threaten
the rule of the Victoria machine.
Altiu'MKNTs against reciprocity
similar to the following, taken from
the London Advertiser, have probably appeared in every Conservative
newspaper in the Dominion. It will
he noticed that one destroys the
other: "Tho United States market
is valueless to the Canadian farmer."
"The United States market will divert our export trade to the United
States and draw us into annexation." "The cost of living in Canada will be increased by reciprocity."
"Under reciprocity, the country
will be flooded with cheap American
fruit and vegetables." "Reciprocity

Pills cured our little daughter, Chris

This caused her to In.vc frequent
headaches, and the least exertion
would tire her.
I We had tried
linany remedies,
1'iut she did not
improve. Finally
■we learned of

her back, the kidney secretions have
become normal, and she plays around

The committee appointed at the
irrigation meeting on Tuesday evening to discuss the power contract
with representatives of the Cascade
Power & Light company, had a conference with E. B. Gibson yesterday.
Mr. Gibson expressed a willingness to
consider all the objections made to
the agreement with the exception of
the one asking for a reduction in meter rentals from 50 to 25 cents per
month, stating that thiB clause is
identical with the price the city
charges for power meters. The contract, as amended, has been forwarded to Manager L. A. Campbell
for approval.
While only nine votes were cast
at the irrigation meeting last Tuesday hy parties who intend to purchase pumping plants, it should not
be inferred that this is the total
number that will be installed this
spring, A number of ranchers who
have expressed themselves as being
ready to install plants were not
present at the meeting.
The high price 6f living has
not affected our job printing

Nitro-Bacterinfi,
The London Sunday Chronicle
announces that a certain discovery
made by "Spook" Stead and soinf-
body named Bottomley is likely to
prove of great value to Canndian
farmers. The discovery comprises a
chemical composition which Stead <__.
Co. have christened "Nitro-Bacter
ine." The virtue they claim for Ihis
stuff certainly places a strain upon
human credulity, but still it may be
all right. The stuff is a fertilizer,
and it is asserted that it will transform sandy wastes into fertile and
flourishing pastures, Tbe copt ie
next to nothing, for one gallon,
wbich will endow an acre of lnnd
with an abnormal crop, costs only
one dollar, and it is guaranteed to
return within two years a clear profit
of #150. This ought to be news to
some of McRride's settlers, one of
whom I met the other day. He has,
so he says, piled up a fortune on it
already.
It was among the ranges, where life
serfdom brings ill changes,
That I met him, when light-hearted he took up his bit o' land.
With bright hopes before him gleaming, as he  set to  work,  and
dreaming
Of the fortune time   would  bring
him in tbis   country rich and
grand.
But, alasl long years    of    toiling
brought him raught but  ceaseless moiling,
Till the curse of  disappointment
lay like lead upon his heart,
Yet   he  labored lute nnd early, to
maintain existem e barely,
While he watched his aspirations,
witb bis surplus cash, depart,
But our ways apart had  drifted, for
I took the tip and shifted
To  a   spot   upon   Ihe river that
would grow a bit of hay; ■
And for months I hadn't met  him,
though   I  did not quite forget
him,
Till I chanced to run across him
down in Menzies street today.
But the change and tranformation,
and the look of glad elation
That he wore left one bewildered,
aB he gazed at me serene—
"Must have sold his old selectinn.to
have shifted his dejection,"
But  he   answered, when I nsked
him, simply "Nitro Bacterine."
"Yes," said he, "I've struck   salvation," and in tones of jubilation
He proceeded to inform me what
had brought the change about;
"You   re-nember   how I struggled,
till my head got sick and   fuddled. '
And  for  years  I couldn't get a
blanky blade of grass to sprout?
Well, my coin hnd all but vanished,
and my last hope had banished,
For I knew I'd have   to   sling  it
when I hadn't got a 'bean,'
When I struck a Yankee paper.with
a strange new-fangled caper—
Som°thiin» new in fertilizers.chris
tened 'Nitro-BacterineP
Well, 1 tried it and succeeded—'twas
the one thine that I needed
To start me  «n the high road to
become a millionaire—
Yuu could never find a match now,
for inv sandy little patch now—
'Twill go eighty to the acre—with
a hng or two to spare.
There's a harvest every quarter, and
I don't depend on water,
I can laugh at all the flood  times
and the droughts  you've  ever
aeen;
Ever  acre  costs   a  dollar, but for
every one I collar
Over fifty,since I toik   to   using

wooden stairways can never
be considered economical.
Wood deteriorates rapidly
under ordinary usage, and requires frequent, and often extensive, repairs to keep it in
good condition.
Concrete stairs will be as
good fifty years later as the
day they are first put up. Age,
which proves so destructive to
wood, serves only to intensify
the strength and hardness of
concrete. Needing no repairs
or painting, concrete first cost

Tbe doorbell rang sharply, and Eva-
Una dropped tbe rolling phi and opened tbe aide door. I
A iuuu stood In tbe porch, his bat ln
hand—a good' looking man of forty,
perhaps, wltb a nice smile and a well
shaped bead. Evallna liked a man to
bave a well shaped bead, and ahe
rather liked Ibe looks of thli man.
Wben be spoke abe liked tbe deep
mellow tones of bla voice.
"I am looking for Miss Ward," he
said pleasantly.   "Is sbe at borne?"
"I am Mlas Ward," acknowledged
Evallna. smiling.
"I waa told Mlas Ward could supply
me wltb some homemade bread."
"I have wheat, rye and graham."
Evallna opened a glass case ibat rested on a aide table and from Its depths
drew forth a crisp golden loaf
"I'll take one of eacb." be declared.
Just then tliere came a querulous
voice from a room beyond tbe kitchen.
"Evallna, wbo are you talking to}
You ain't got any beaus out there,
bare you?"
Tbe girl (lushed brightly, and a
Strange air of reserve settled over her
lovely face. "It Is my Ureat-aunt Harriet Sbe Is very old and somewhat
peculiar. I hope you will oot mind
wbat she said."
"Evallna! That's Tom Tsylor's voice.
What's be doln' bere?" Aunt Harriet's
voice shrilled through tbe rooms..
The man let himself out the door
while Evallna baatened to tbe side of
bedridden Aunt Harriet
"What's Tom Taylor doing here?"
■sked Ibe old woman iieevtsbly.
"It wasn't Tom. Aunt Harriet; It
was a stranger." explained tbe girl
wltb sweet patience.
"What you going to give me for sup.
per?" Wltb Evelina's belp she sal up
wbile the girl brushed back ber scanty
gray lucks and straightened tbe bedclothes.
"Creamed toast and peaches, some of
my fresh Jumbles and a eup of tea."
"Bounds dreadful good. Hvulluu. I
expect I'm migbty cross to you some
times. You've got tbe patience of an
angel, for you ain't never cross." Aunt
Harriet stretched forth a bony hand
and caressed tbe girl's bright balr.

"Too bad 1 can't be nice to you. Aunt
Harriet, you're all I've got lu the
world."
"I'm a poor critter." lamented Aunt
Harriet—"not worth my sail. You're
killing yourself baking and brewing
tbere to make a living for us both. I
wish you'd get married, Evallna."
"Maybe I shsll marry a millionaire,"
laughed Evullua as sbe went busily to
aud fro "You would like tbat. aunt
for I shouldn't do any more baking.
Wouldn't tbat be perfectly lovely? You
might ride In an automobile. How
would you like that?"
"I wouldn't like lt a mite." said Aunt
Harriet grimly. "I'd say to the driver.
'You ran take me right up to tbe
graveyard now; I'm bound to get tbere
If I go riding In an automobile.' and
so if tbere was an accident I'd be
right bandy to the Ward plot. Tbere.
Evallna. tbat supper does smell real
tasty. It's a sbame you don't get married. You are a splendid cook, and
aome good man would appreciate yon."
"Aunt Harriet. I believe you might
operate a matrimonial bureau, only
please don't practice on me. I'm loo
busy to get married."
Evailna hurried away to attend to
ber baking, wblcb by a series of accidents bad been delayed until tbe late
afternoon. As sbe bustled to and fro.
putting things to rlcbts. clearing away
the disorder of flour and other Ingredients, sbe passed a amall mirror banging on tbe wall.
"Pear me!" murmured Evallna. "I
wonder If tbat smudge of dour waa on

"Evallna. do come and aet me right!"
called the old lady "I've eat my supper and spilled tbe tea, and 1 want to
go lo sleep."
When Evallna had cleared away the
nipper things and Audi Harriet had
been tucked under tbe covers Evallna
sst a long lime over ber own meal
with soft brown eyea dreamily died on
the glowing square of the stove door.
Every day thereafter the strange
man called al Uvallnt's house and
bought some product of her baking.
One day several weeks after tbe
stranger's flrst visit Aunt Harriet was
left alone In tbe boose while Evallna
went to a nearby town to order sup
piles. Late In tbe afternoon thero
came a knock al tbe sitting room door.
"Who Is It?" demanded Aunt Harriet shrilly.
"I would like some bread, please,"
came tbe meek voice of tbe stranger.
"The key's under the mat" called
Aunt Harriet eagerly. "Come right
In."
When the door had opened and closed and she knew the stranger waa In
tbe sittltg room Aunt Harriet called
again: "Evallna's gone to tbe store.
If yoo want bread yon can take It
from tbe ease snd leave the money on
the table.   Be yon Tom Taylor?"
"No. I'm not Mr. Taylor. I merely
called for some bread. I'll help my-
tait witb your permission," came ths
genial tones In reply.
"Will you please come here a moment?" Aunt Harriet spoke rather
timidly for a woman of her forcible
character.
"Certainly, If you wish." In an Instant be was filling tbe bedroom doorway and looking down at Aunt Harriet's eager old face. "Wbat can 1 do
for you?" he asked kindly.
"I wanted to see yoo. I like yonr
voice," said Aunt Harriet, with sudden decision. "Wbat did you say
your name was?" sbe asked shrewdly.
The stranger smiled broadly. "I
didn't say, bnt 1 am Ur. Maasen, tbs
new physician in town."
"Dr. Maasen," repeated Aunt Harriet slowly, aa If she enjoyed tha
sonnd of tbe words. "Aro yon married, young mnn?"
"No. I am not" be laughed lightly.
"Drink?" asked Aunt Harriet briskly.
"Never."
"Smoke?"
"Yes. and enjoy It too."
Aunt Harriet shook ber head disapprovingly, but made no comment
"Chew?" she asked.
"Lord, nor' he laughed again. "And
I don't believe I use swear words
either."
"Yes, you do. You Just said one,"
contradicted tbe old woman dryly.
"But never mind; you'll do."
"Thank you for saying so. And
now may I hare tny bread?"
"You better wait till Evallna comes,"
suggested Aunt Harriet agreeably.
"You can alt right down ln the other
room. There's likely to be Suntiay
school papers on the table. You can
read till Evallna comes. She'll bo
along lu a moment"
"Very well." said Dr. Maasen. obeying ber suggestion wltb suspicious
promptitude.
Thereupon followed a conversation
tbat would better be called an Inquisition. Tbere was no question concerning tbe life of John Maasen thht Aunt
Harriet did not ask. Hie past was
laid bare for Aunt Han-let's Inspection, and then she In turn told the
simple story of Evallna's self sacrificing life "All for an old woman that
Isn't worth ber salt" she said tearfully.
"Xonsensp!" said the doctor cheerily.
"I know Mlsa Wsrd enjoys doing It
for you."
"If I was to die she'd be all alone."
said Aunt Harriet wistfully. "1 wlsb
abe'd get married."
Dr Massen was silent for several
moments "I'erbaps sbe will some
day." he said, with some eotistraliil
"Why don't you marry her?" asked
Aunt Harriet sharply. "Evallna's a
resi good rook."
"Aunt Harriet!" Evallna's voice came
Indignantly from tbe doorway. "Why
are you speaking of me in such a manner to a stranger. How may I serve
you. sir?"
Dr. Massen. looking down at ber. marveled at ber great anger. She linked
like some little fluffy ruffled bird, a
little blight hued bird wbose domain
has been Invaded by aome marauding
dog or cat.
"I came for bread." be said meekly.
"I hope you bare aome to spare "
"I believe there Is none left." ssld
Evallna loftily, and then she blushed
painfully while he .bowed low aud left
the room.
Evallna walked Into tbe bedroom
and. throwing herself down into a
chair beside tbe bed, burst Into tears,
"Aunt Evallna, how could you?" she
sobbed bitterly. "You bave mortified
me so."
"I was only starting my matermonlal
bureau. Evallna. You won't do nothing yourself about getting married, and
you can't hake all your life. Tbere
ain't no need to take on so; be was
real pleasant about Ibe matter."
"I'leusant!" walled Evallna. "Oh,
Auui Harriet wby did you pick him
out? If It had only been somebody
else! I'll never dare look him In the
face again!"
Aout Harriet turned bar faro to tbe
wail and smiled wisely. "I can't say
I'm sorry. Evallna. bot I won't say
any sucb things again, I promise."
Two weeks afterward Aunt Harriet
Ward suffered one of her periodical
"poor spells." snd old Dr. Lake was
sent for In great bast*. Bot Dr. Lake
was himself a prisoner, tied to the
bouse with Inflammatory rheumatism,
so It happened tbat the tall form of
br. Maasen darkened Evallna's doorway one* mora. ■
She did oot look at him. hot led the
way directly to Aont Harriet's side.
Sbe stood span and reluctantly confessed to herself tbat hla skill waa far
superior to tbst of tbe old doctor. Hla
terse questioning, bis kindly manner,
his aulck diagnosis of Aont Harriet's
baffling case, opened a world of encouragement for both women.
Evallna found herself flying to do
his bidding. An hour afterward they
were chatting like old friends across
Aont Harriet's contented face.
"Seems like I feel ten years younger,
doctor." said the old woman gratefully.
"After I give you a course of electric
massage you'll he running around witb
tbe best of us." he encouraged her.
"I can never repay you if you do."
abe said tearfully.
"You've paid me in part already. Miss
Ward." be said gravely, wltbout looking at Evallna. "Some day I'm coming to present my bill—and perbaps
levy on your moat precious possession."
Evallna In tbe next room was again
an eavesdropper, but tbis time she
was silent Her hand rested lightly
wltb a half caress on one of tbe doctor's sealskin gloves thrown on the
table, and tbere waa a deamy look lo
ber eyea.
"I'm glad be likes spice Jumbles,"
thought Evallna before abe awoks to
trembling realisation of what tha at
mission meant
THE GLADSTONE FAMILY.
In the Grampian Hills.
In literary and historic allusion the
Grampians are rich. Over the hills
to the south is Blair, the seat of one
of the mightiest chieftains, visited by
kings and queens, and honored, for «
while, by the presence of "the great
est lyric poet the world has ever
seen," our Scottish plowman poet
Burns—at whose instance, I am told,
the pass of Kiliiecranlsie was planted
with trees and decked with its present
loveliness. Turning toward the west,
■ignin, and sweeping 'away over the
waters ol Loch Erieot, is Ben Alder,
it giant indeed, and the loveliest mountain by far seen from Sur manse window. Its'wizardry is enchanting, it'
charms immense, and its changeful-
ness of mood and aspect a source o<
'lourly, nay momentary, wonder anl
enrichment. Again to the west, ever
the great hills are, down by Ardver-
kle, is Lion Laggan, the scene of
'.nntlseer's famous pictures, "The
Challenge," and "Who but the Brave
Deserve the Fair." Further to tlie
north is Lilian bridge, in the centre
of a beautiful verdant valley, with
foamy soil ami fuir farmsteads, anJ
■trosperous looks. Hence we had the
'Letters from the Mountains" by
Mrs. Grant of that ilk. "Green Laggan," she called it, and green it verily is, and beautiful for situation
Within easy reach of her lived Mac-
pherson of "Ossian" fame, and many
another of whom her "Letters" tell.
But, rich as they are in literary and
historic allusion, I incline to think
the Grampians have not yet been
"discovered," and wait their poet and
romancer alike.—Scotsman.

Now thnt the British political situation is once more absorbing the interest of the civilized world, anecdotes
concerning the members are flying
briskly about. Among the: t is u
story concerning Mr. William Redmond, commonly known as "Willie."
Some years ago when a debate on
Woman Suffrage was agitating the
House. Mr. Redmond on behalf of
the ladies, remarked: "Mr. Speaker,
I assert that I believe that a vote
should he given to every one ol God's
creatures."
The members hurst into a roar of
laughter and "Willie" retired in confusion. Truly it would have been a
stupendous undertaking to extend
the suffrage to the denizens of the
Zoological Gardens, who doubtless
would have voted for "open bare."

Origin ol the New Governor-General
of South Africa.
Mr. Herbert Gladstone's title, Vis-
jount Gladstone of Lanark, revives
in a very interesting way the old connection with a part of Scotland in
which members of his family were
settled for several generations. The
connection, however, is not with the
town of Lanark; it iB with the county
of that name. It was really to the
Biggar district of Lanarkshire that
the new peer's ancestors belonged. Indeed ,the name of Gladstone is still a
somewhat common one in Biggar, ol
which town the viscount's great-greatgrandfather was an honored inhabitant. In the churchyard close to the
doorway of tho parish kirk there is a
large throughstane inscribed with
the names of many Gladstones.
The first is that of John Gladstones,
"portioner," who died on June 1,1756,
oged 63 years. He was a prosperous I
maltman—the malting industry was
then an important one in Biggar—and
was "keeper of the baron's girnnl";
that is, custodier of the rents paid in
kind by tenants to the Lords Fleming.
An elder in the kirk, a Freemason,
and holding a good social position,
he was a man of considerable importance in the town and district. This
John Gladstones was the great-grandfather of William Ewart Gladstone.
He had a large family—six daughters and five sons. One of the latter,
James, was destined for the Church
of Scotland, but failed in the pulpit,
and,_ like many other "stickit ministers of the age, turned to teaching.
More successful in this profession, he
became rector of the Grammar School
of Leith. His brother, Thomas (the
fourth son of John Gladstones),
started business as a corn merchant
in that seaport and was very successful. He had a son, John, who was
also in business in Leith, but who removed to Liverpool, where he engaged
in the West India trade. Acquiring a
fortune, he purchased the estate of
Fasque, and in 1846 was created a
baronet. His third son was William
Ewart Gladstone.
Originally the family name appears
to have been Gledcstano. The first of
whom there is any record is, curiously enough, a Herbert—Herbert de
Gledestane. He appears in very unpatriotic guise on the Ragman Roll
as one of those who in 1206 did homage to Edward I. of England. TJie
connection of the family with the
Border district began in the reign of
David II., son of Robert Bruce, who
in return for some services bestowed
upon William de Gledestanes a grant
of the lands of Woodgrenynt, on the
Eddlestone Water, in Peeblesshire.
Other lands in the neighborhood were
acquired by marriage, and the family
appears to have developed an acute
attack of land hunger.
Several claims were advanced to
common lands, and, although these
claims were set aside by the courts,
. the Gledslanes were not seriously
discouraged, and on more than one
occasion attacks were made on burghers Who resisted them. John Gled-
stane in 1561 was indicted for the
slaughter of two burghers whose death
had occurred in one of these forays,
although nothing seems to have come
of the prosecution.
"But other days and other fortunes
came." There does not appear to
have been any sudden catastrophe,
and there is nothing to suggest that
the change in the feudal position of
the Gledstanes was due to the political revolutions and unrest wbich prov-
ed the undoing of so many Scottish
families; there appears rather to hnve
been a gradual decline in the family
fortunes. First the estate of Gledstanes went; it was followed by that
of Hundleshope, nnd eventually ths
last of the family possessions, the
estate-of Arthurshiel. went also. Then
William, the son of the last of the
Gledstanes of Arthurshiel, settled in
Biggar as a maltman about the end
of the seventeenth century. From
this time the family became identified
with commercial pursuits. William
was succeeded in the same business
by his son, John, ulready mentioned.
It seems to have been this John
who changed the name from Gled
stanes to Gladstones. The final s was
not dropped until 1835. when Sir John
Gladstones of Fasque obtained the
royal license to change the name tc
Gladstone.
The old ancestral stronehold of tht
Border Gledstanes—thc Gledstanes ol
that ilk—has completely tlisappearcd.
There was—there must have hcen-
an ancient castle, but none of it re
mains. Easter Gledstanes has a farm
house, and at Wester Gledstanc!
there are a few small cottages for agri
cultural laborers, but tliere nre tic
traeos, no relics, antl no landmark!
of the old Gledstanes on their ancienl
ancestral estates. It ia to Biggar ic
Lanarkshire that one tnust turn foi
sucli relics and landmarks.

Attorney-General of Hit Province Now
Mr. MacLean Givet Promise of Going Much Further In the Public
Life of Hit Province and of the
Dominion—H» Sat Formerly In the
Federal House lor Lunenburg.
Hon. A. K. MacLean, Attorney-General of Nova Scotia, was the lending
spokesman nf the Maritime Provinces
in tlie delegation at Ottawa recently in connection with the readjustment of the representation ol the
different provinces in the House ol
Commons, which will have to take
plnce after the next census if the
British North America act is not
changed. Owing to the opposition
from the Quebec delegates no agreement wns reneheil ami the meeting
was postponed until a later dnte, when
it is lo be hoped some satisfactory
solution ol the difficulty will be reached, so thnt un interprovincial agitation may lie avoided. The Attorney-
General of Nova Scotia ably presented the arguments in, favor of the Maritime Provinces audi his views made a
very favorable impression on all the
delegates, it is said; except those from
Quebec.
Hon. Mr. MacLean is one of tho
most brilliant young public men in
Canada and for some time has been
acting Premier of Nova Scotia.   It is

As an office boy in the Citv of London, Eng., Sir J. W. Benn. the leaflet
of the Progressive Party on the L.C.C.
was once sternly rebuked by Lord
Mayor Cotton Ior sketching Mincing
Lane celebrities on trade catalogues.
In his younger days Sir John achieved
considerable fame as a lecturer, and
illustrated his lectures with lightning
cartoons. He has also written ana
produced a play at his house and
played a double part himself. It may
be remembered that he was defeated
during the recent general election
while contesting Devonport. Of the
House of Commons he has said: "It
is like one of the ancient clocks in
the Guildhall Museum, a splendid
piece of old work, which excites the
admiration ol everyone, but useless
tor modern timekeeping. It wants a
new mainspring and the 'latest improvements   to make it go."
HON.  A.  X.   MACLEAN.
rumored that he will be made Premier
in the near future, as Hon. Mr. Murray, lender of the Government, who.
met with an accident some time ago
and had to have his leg amputated,
will, it is claimed, retire from active-
politics and he raised to the Senate to
Iill the vacancy caused by the appointment of Senator McGregor to the Lieutenant-Governorship of Nova Scotia-
Mr. MacLean wos formerly member
for Lunenburg, N.8., in the House of
Commons at Ottawa, and while in
the latter body established a reputation as a fair and honorable Parliamentarian of exceptional ability.
While in the popular chamber he wus
one of the brainy young Liberals that
was nearly always in the fighting
line and he did yeoman service for
his party. When the Government had
a knotty task in defending the North
Atlantic Trading Co. transactions in
respect to immigration, Mr. MacLean
was one of the stalwarts who threw
himself into the breach, and his fighting stieech was a splendid specimen
of defensive political tactics that highly pleased seasoned Parliamentarians.
This bright young man from the
Maritime Provinces was born at Upper North Sydney, Cape Breton, June
18, 1865. He was educated at Dal-
hoiisie University. Halifax, and subsequently studied law. He wns an
unsuccessful candidate lor the House
of Commons in 1900, but was elected
to the Nova Scotia Legislature in 1901.
He subsequently resigned to run for
the House of Commons in the general
election nf 19C4 and was elected for
Lunenburg. He was re-elected in 190-1
and resigned in 1909 on being appointed Attorney-General of Nova Scotia.
He is a most aggressive Liberal fighter, being a good mate for the indomitable E. M. MacDonald, of whom he
is a cjose [lersonal friend. On the
death of Hon. Mr. Pipes he was selected for his present position and ht
is generally recognized as the coming
man from the Maritime Provinces as
he will no doubt succeed Premier Mut-
ray at an early date and become the
recognized leader of Uie Liberal hosts

One ul his stories turns upon the

"Yet, yes," exclaimed the old man.
"I knowed the parties. I knowed
