Valuators of Midway & Vernon Grade Have Finished
Their Work
A Victoria dispatch states that it
is understood that the board of
valuators appointed early in the
present year to determine tbe price
which the Kettle River Valley Rail-
wny company must pay for the old
Midway & Vernon right of way,
and also to pass upon the various
claims for wages and supplies incurred by tbe defunct railway corporation and ueumed by the Kettle
Valley under tbe subsidizing legislation of tbe last session, has now
virtually completed ite important
work, although Rome few- isoloted
claims may yet be received and considered. The approximate aggregate amount of the award has been
communicated to the Kettle Valley
company, and it is stated that
vouchers and cheques in connection
with the settlement of preferential
accounts are now being prepared
and that cheques will go forward to
the creditors about the middle of
the present month. President J. J
Warren, of the railway company,
bas had several conferences with the
arbitrators since his arrival. The
board held its last meeting on Friday, Judge Forin, of Nelson, presiding, and there being also present
R. F. Green, the representative of
the government on tbe commission,
and L. M. Bice, of Seattle, who
acted in the interest of the railway
The board has decided upon a figure in the neighborhood of $62,-
000. It is stated upon authoritative information that the amount of
the award will be forthcoming in
ten days time. The valutors hope
to be in a position to make payments
in the matter of various claims for
wages and supplies incurred by the
defunct Midway &' Vernon Railway
coinpany and assumed by the Kettle Valley line some time between
now and the end of the present
month. The claims for labor and
accounts of that description, so far
aB they appertain to the ten-mile
right of way between Midway and
Rock Creek, are likely to be paid in
full. This was tbe portion of tbe
road with which the board could
deal. Other claims in connection
with that portion of the road-will, it
is stated, receive substantial consideration. .
smelter of the British Columbia company under a contract covering 25.-
000. Officers say another contract
on tbe same terms covering' 25,000
tons more will probably be made
when this one expires, but it is not
known what arrangements will be
made after that.
It is not known yet whether a
merger of the two companies will be
considered or not. Value of the New
Dominion ores will be tbe governing
factor in whatever permanent arrangements are made, and that cannot be ascertained until all the poor
ore left loose in the mines by the
former management is removed. By
the time 50,000 tons have been
treated, however, the ore bodies will
have been reached and the value of
the New Dominion ore determined.
If a consolidation is arranged, the
interests of the minority stockholders of the New Dominion company
will bave to be considered.
According to an officer, the British Columbia Copper company is at
present producing at the rate of one
million pounds of copper and $75,,-

Street Journal.
The New Dominion
Operation of the properties of the
New Dominion Copper company,
which was begun recently at the
Rawhide mine, is under the same
management as that of the British
Columbia Copper company. Officers
of the two companies are now practically tbe same, and J. E. McAllister is general manager of both. It
will be rembered that last year the
British Columbia company acquired'
53 per cent of the New Dominion
company ify exchanging 88,709
shares of its stock and #11,593 for
122,556 shares of the New Dominion stock.
About 2500 tons of ore a week
from the New Dominion mines is

Last Sunday's services were well
attended, and the interest appeared
to be well sustained. Perhaps the
largest attendance of the whole mis-
bion was Sunday evening. Tbe
men's meeting, and the mass meeting of the Sunday schools, both held
in the afternoon, showed Mr. Robinson's ability to speak according to
the audience before him. His talk
to men about "'Seeing .Life" gave
one the impression that the speaker
had seen some himself, and this no
doubt' enabled bim to speak with
such earnestness. The story of
"Little Meg and Her Children" was
a combination of story and song
told of a life in "old London," of
special interest to children.
On Thursday Rev. F; VV. Anderson, M. A., came here to conduct the
closing services of the mission. The
meeting Thursday evening was very
well attended. Rev. Andereon gave
a very forceful address, pointing out
the "open door" of the local churches to enter. Rev. Wilson presented
the claims of the Sunday school in
the plans for the upbuilding of this
growing country. Both these gentlemen are interesting and convincing speakers. The service Fridiiy
evening waB devoted to the subject
of "Christian Citizenship."

Grand Forks theatre-goers were

Director of Experimental Farms Hat
Spent the Lait Twenty-Three Yeart
Laboring Untiringly For the Prosperity of the Farmers of the Dominion—Many Fruiti and Grains
Have Been Imported.
Canada's system of experimental
farms is one of the most interesting
and perhaps the most original feature
ot the Dominion Government. To
the experimental farm, without
doubt, more than to any other factor,
is due the splendid development of
the 'northwest Dominion to-day.
Through 23 years, Dr. William Saunders, the head of the system, has
worked untiringly and the results
have been great. His first connection
with the service was In 1885, when
he was a business man making a
hobby of horticulture. At that time
he was sent abroad to study ugricul-
tural work in other nations, and upon
his return he waa made director of
five experimental farms about to be
organized. Since then, under his
guidance, the work has progressed by
leaps and bounds. The potential
yield of every acre of Canadian farm
land has been increased; fruit has
been successfully raised on the north
plains, and besides this, there has
been established a great educational
extension service for the training of
the young Canadian farmer.
The keystone of this experimental
(arm system in Canada is the so-
called central farm, near Ottawa.
The first branch farm was establish'
ed between New Brunswick and Nova
Scotia, and this was followed by a
farm at Brandon, for Manitoba. Then
came a branch for the Northwest Territories, which was placed at Indian
Head, and others have been established since.
These experimental farms have
been of great value to Canada, enabling her to take an inventory of
her agricultural resources and to
know the possibilities of her land.
She has demonstrated that many
grains and fruits not indigenous to
her broad prairies can be grown upon
them, and in this way has distributed an immense amount of useful information among her agriculturists
which has added immeasurably to
the wealth of the country.
Temperance In Ireland.
Remarkable figures regarding the
strength of the temperance movement
in Ireland, were given in the report
of the Temperance Committee recently submitted to the Genera! Assembly
ot the Presbyterian Church of Ireland, in Belfast. There are 60,433
members of Bands of Hope and temperance societies _*onnected with this
denominational body, an increase of
11,300 during the year. The progress
of thc Total Abstainencu Union, better known as "Catch-my-pay" movement, was so rapid that there waa
scarcely a town of any importance in
six of the counties of Ulster which
had not been revolutionized in its re
lation to the drink traffic.
Thc movement was also at work in
the South and West of Ireland, in
Scotland, and in certain parts of England. As the result of one year's
work 120,000 members had thus far
been enrolled.
The report also referred to the work
. among tlie Koman Catholic community, showing that the Young Crusaders numbered 100,000 and the Pioneers, an adult society, 150,000. Ill

It Becomes Every Day More Necessary to Replace Coal.
Hon. Clifford Sifton, ex-Minister of
the Interior, in an address recently
on the peat supplies of Canada said
among other things:
"We, in Canada and the United
States, have been living amid a bountiful supply of the natural resources
of wealth. We have hardly known
what it was to be in need of anything
that is really necessary to existence.
In this City of Ottawa ever since its
existence there has been a constant
struggle to get rid of the wastage of
manufacturing which, in other situations, would have been of great commercial value.
Ottawa is, therefore, a typically difficult place in which to get people
to realize the value of fuel. Some of
us who stand here were born upon
farms, upon where, when fuel was
required, it was only necessary to go
out and cut it—the destruction of the
tree in itself was regarded as adding
value to the land from which it was
cut. We are, however, coming, if
somewhat slowly, to a better realization of what these things mean and,
among other questions, we are beginning to realize what the fuel problem
means to great masses of people aftt-r
the supnly of timber has been so far
depleted that cheap wood fuel is no
longer available.
In the great centre of population in
the Northern United States and Canada—as it is soon to be in its present
course of development—the mass of
the population will be wage^eainera
living by their daily earnings and in
a climate which for at least four
months of the year requires a large
amount of fuel for family use—cheap
and abundant fuel is a necessity of
existence. There are districts in
Canadian cities to-day where families
are' herded together with insufficient
space for health and really civilized
life because of the cost of fuel in the
winter, and this condition will tend
to increase rather than diminish.
The coal supply of the continent is
measurably well known, and the conditions of its extraction and marketing are thoroughly well known. It
may be safely said that there will
be no permanent reduction in the
price of coal—rather is it reasonably
certain that there will be a gradual
but steady increase. We may get
much heat from water power in some
localities favored by nature, such as
the neighborhood of the Ottiwu
River; but, so far, the cost of development, maintenance and management
does not encourage us M the belie'
that we, shall be able to make thc
White Ooal a poor man's fuel.
In Canada we have coal in Nova
Scotia, Alberta, British Columbia
but between Aibei^a and the New
Brunswick line little coal of economic
7alue, so far aa known; but in those
'portions of the country where there is
no coal, peat bogs abound.
Now, as coal becomes dearer, the
difficulty and uncertainty of the supply of which we have had the very
vivid experiences in the past, becomes more accentuated, the Importance of an alternative and substitute
fuel will become more pressing. If,
•therefore, the great peat bogs of
Canada can be successfully converted into a fuel which shall be, if not
so desirable as Pennsylvania coal,
yet a practical domestic fuel, substantially cheaper than wood or coal,
and abundant and certain in quantity, the boon thus conferred upori
the future inhabitants of Canada and
the Northern United States can hardly be overestimated. It will literally
ncan lite and happiness to millions
•it people.
What Constitutes Good Manners at
King George's Court,
When our late King, Edward VII.,
came to the throne he relaxed many
of the stringencies of etiquette which
hedged in Queen Victoria's position.
He, however, was exceedingly particular about matters of dress, and
on more than one occasion he had to
rebuke a guest for visit! ag him without obeying the court laws concerning attire.
For instance, before the King ascended the throne it used to be strict
etiquette that none but the regulation white tie should be worn by any
guest invited to meet royalty at dinner. At a bachelor dinner given by
I King Edward, when he was Prince of
| Wales, one of the guests- turned up
| in a black silk tie instead of the re-
1 gulation white one, and received a
well-merited snub. A waiter strolled
up to him and held out a silver salver, on which was a white tie. "Sir,"
said the servant, with his accustomed civility, "His Royal Highness haa
ordered me to bring you this."
Since that occasion gentlemen who
are asked to dine with royalty mu.it
wear a black tie with a dinner jacket,
and a white tie with the ordinary
evening tail-coat.
When foreign royalties are visiting
a royal palace it is the custom for
the gentlemen of the court to appear
in what is known as "frock dress"
and wearing all their orders. At state
banquets uniforms must be worn.
When the King and Queen visit together gentlemen must wear knee
breeches, but when H.s Majesty is
alone ordinary evening dress is the
rule. While the court is in mourning
every guest ii- expected to assume the
same degree of mourning as that at
Ladies who visit the royal palaces
havo to be v»ry careful how they
attire themselves, though the rules aa
to dress are not quit* so strict as they
were in the days of Queen Victoria.
Speaking of the etiquette observed at
the Court of St. James's during the
roisrn of her late Majesty, Count Paul
Vasili. the author of "Society in Berlin," said: "The ladies at the drawing-room have to wear the three
white feathers of . the Prince of
Wales's escutcheon planted straight
up in front, like the crest of a certain
bird, or that of a Sioux chief. If the
plumes of any of these ladies are not
correctly placed the lady is sent back
to her mirror. Mrs. Langtry . . .
presented herself one day with a
graceful coiffure, in which the three
traditional plumes were somewhat
coquet.tishly arranged. A chamberlain was sent to the oeautiful lady to
ask her either to arrange her plumes
according to etiquette or to with-
di tw."

Ought to Be Switched.
On Thursday last one of our local
barber shops was the scene of a pathetic incident. A little girl about 11
or 12 years of age, with beautiful Ion*
hair hanging down her back, entered
the place and began to cry. The tonsorial artist enquired as to what wa.
the trouble, and the little girl informed him that her mother had sent her

Another Wonderful   Cure   By   That
Wonderful Fruit Medicine
Mr. Mathias Dery, of 225 Church
street, Ottawa, Ont., was treated for
years by physicians for Painful Dyspepsia. He spent so much money for
doctor's medicines without getting
much relief that he had about made
up his mind that his case was hope*
Seeing "Fruit-a-tivea" advertised,
however, Mr. Dery thought he would
invest 50c In a box of these wonderful
fruit juice tablets.
And this famous fruit medicine did
for Mr. Dery what all the doctors
could not do—it cured him.
He writes:—"Fruit-a-tives" positively cured me of severe Dyspepsia when
physicians failed to relieve me."
"Fruit-a-tives" makes the stomach
sweet and clean, Insures sound digestion and regulates bowels, kidneys and

What It Contained
A well-known physician was walking down one of the main London
thoroughfares with his five-year-old
son when they were obliged to stop to
await the pussing of a funeral procession.
The youngster had never seen anything of the kind. His eyes widened.
Pointing to the hearse (an enclosed
one), he asked:
"Dad, what's that?"
"In that, my son," said the physician, with a grim smile, "is a mistaken diagnosis."

No Draughts in the Arctic
According to the New York Times,
Commander Peary has said thut when
one is really prepared for it, the Arctic weather is not much worse than
winter in New York or London. Indeed, there is a story concerning a
certain passenger on a Pullman
"sleeper" who complained bitterly to
the porter of the constant draught in
the car. And the other passengers it
seems, were just a bit surprised when
they read on his suitcase the nnme of
the famous Arctic explorer who was
destined later to reach the pole. You
see there are no doors or-windows in
Greenland, and consequently there arc
no draughts.

future Into a nightmare of physical and mental
Such mothers, who have witnessed their
children's suffering and who have undergone
the long, sleepless nights and distracting
anxiety which they alone can realize, will
understand the gratitude that prompted this
letter from Mrs John Ewan, 5, Victoria St.,
Inverurie, Scotland, and will read It with
keenest Interest:
" I use Cuticura Soap st eadily for my baby's
skin. She had the eczema when sbe was three
months old. She was ln an awful mess all
over her body. We never thought she would
get over It. We sat with her night and day for
about a month, expecting every minute to see
her die. The doctor gave me an ointment
to rub her with but it did her no good. My
mother was home from America and sbe told
me to try Cuticura Ointment and to wash her
with Cuticura Soap. There was a great
difference when I used tbe first box. It
seemed to soothe her and she slept. 1 used
three boxes of Cuticura Ointment ond she
was quite cured. She has the purest skin
and is the fattest baby now I She is a miracle,
the doctor declares. I am glad to tell anybody  about   it."
And that the success of the Cutieura
Remedies is not confined to the treatment
of eczema, is amply proven by Mrs. M. A.
Schwann, 674 Sprlngwells Ave,, Detroit,
Mich., who writes:
"When my little Vivian was about six
months old, her papa had a boil on his forehead. ' At that time the child was covered
with prickly heat and I suppose in scratching
it her own head became infected, for it broke
out in bolls, one after another. She bad about
sixty in all and 1 used Cuticura Soap and
Cuticura Ointment which cured her of them
entirely. We do not think any one can
praise Cuticura Remedies too highly."
That mothers may test the efficacy and
economy of the Cuticura Remedies for themselves, tbe Potter Drug and Client. Corp., 121
Columbus Ave., Boston, Mass., will send free
on application, a generous trial box of Cuticura
Ointment, sufficient to afford immediate relief
in tlie most distressing forms of eczemas,
rashes, Itchings and scallngs of the skin snd
scalp. Under the influence of Cuticura Ointment, tlie itching and burning stop, tlie child
falls Into a refreshing sleep, the mother rests,
and for the first time, perhaps, in many weeks,
[peace falls on a distracted household. The

They Soothe Excited Nerves.—Nervous affections are usually attributable
to defective digestion, as the stomach
dominates the nerve centres. A course
of Parmelee's Vegetnble Pills will still
all disturbances of this character, and
by restoring the stomach to normal
action relieve the nerves from irritation. There is no sedative like them
in the correction of irregularities of
tlie digestive processes, no preparation
hns done so effective work, as can be
testified by thousands.

Can Only Be Cured Through
the Blood-Try Dr. Williams'
PinK Pills Which Act Directly On the Blood.
Rheumatism will rack you just ns
long as there is acid in the blood to
cause rheumatism, That's the whole
trouble—acid in the blood. Cold,
damp weather may start the pains
going but it is not the cause. That
is rooted in the blood and can only
be cured through the blood. Years
ago when medical science did not
know as much about the complaint
as today, rheumatic sufferers were
given something to rub on the
swollen tender joints. Some people
who do not know any better still adhere to the old fashioned way, but it
does not cure their rheumatism—and
never will.
When the acid is driven from the
blood the rheumatism is gone—it's
cured. The thing is to get the right
medicine to drive the acid out. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have cured more
eases of rheumatism than any other
disease except anaemia. They do this
because they enrich the blood supply,
thus toning up the system to a point
where the rheumatic acid Is expelled
through the natural channels and the
I rouble' disappears. Tbey were intended to do this and they do it thoroughly. Mr. Henry O'Donoghue, Viscount, Sask., saysi "About four years
ago 1 came here from Scotland for the
purpose of taking up land. Even at
so recent a date as this the country
was quite different from what it is
today. Then the nearest shack to mo
was ten miles distant, and the near-
>st town much further away, ln those
lays lioii.estcading wns not all sun-.
ihlne, and in the spring of 1007 I contracted a severe cold. 1 had never
been sick in my life before, and paid
no attention to the cold, and almost
before 1 realized it 1 was down with
an attack of pluerisy ami as tlie pains
of this trouble began to leave me those
of rheumatism set in, and my sufferings were something terrible. Help
was s.Mit for, but it did me no good,
nor did tlie medicine given me have
any effect, and for live months I was
confined to the house. Then ono day
I  had  an  unexpected  visit   from  my
brother, who c from Australia, and I
whom i had not seen for nine years.
When he siw my condition he at one";
urged me to get Dr. Williams' Pink
I'i.is, as he know of a number of
enses iu whioh tbey had made mar-1
villous cures in Australia. The remit was ho went to town ami pur-,1
.•based six ho7.es, and beforo I had |
lined the last box I was out working j
witli my oxen and am now as healthy
as anv man in the province. For this |
I must thank the Pills and my
brother's advice, and 1 strongly re-
lommend the Pills to other rheuinn-i
tic sufferers." ' j

The good-roads movement has
now spread over the the entire continent, excepting the Boundary district. The agitation would not be
out of place here. There is no greater asset to a community thau good
roads. The sightseer and the motorist take pleasure in using them;
and the rancher and orchardist need
them, and is entitled to them, he-
cause lie pays the tax collector for
them. Although the provincial government has been quite liberal in
making grants for road improvements in this district during the
past two or three years, a great deal
of this money has been aB good as
wasted, because it has necessarily
been spent on work that has to be
done over again after every spring
freshet. It is now time to start in
to build permanent roads in this
valley. But to do this here, where
tbe soil is light and sandy, a rock
foundation is required. This cannot be obtained without a rock
crusher. Therefore it is quite plain
that the best thing the department
of works can do is to send us a
crusher. We will supply the rock
ourselves. We have enough of it in
the surrounding mountains to macadamize every road in the valley.
To emphasize the urgent, need of the
crushei, it is only necessary to state
that without it, owing to the light
nature of the soil here, good roads
will continue to be an impossibility,
no matter how much money the government expended on them; but
with this machine a stietch of permanent road could be build each
year, and in a few years the entire
valley would good roads, and the
appropriations could be cut down.
Both the government and tbe people would gain in the end.

"For several months uiy hair had
been falling out, and dandruff also appeared. 1 used some so-called hair
tonics and renewers, but never received any relief from the scalp disease until I procured Parisian Sage,
and used it for ahout two weeks.
Parisian Sage made the hair stop falling out, and caused it to grow iu quits
heavily, stopped the dandruff, and
made the scalp cool, clean and co -
fortable. It also leaves the hair silky,
and does not make it stiff or sqicky.
I endorse the use of Parisian Sage. It
is all right."—October 30, 190_j.

.Booth's Kidney Pills   act directly
on the kidneys and cure every kidney
Mrs. Jane Febery, of 5(19 Pacific ave.,

"After suffering dreadfully with
rheumatism ir. my right hip and ter
rible pains across my back for years,
I am more than pleased to sny that
Booth's Kidney Pills have cuied nie.
The rheumatic pains in my hip were
so severe that I could not lie on niv
right hip at all and could hardly
move in bed. My back was so weak
and painful that after stooping over I
could not straighten up for some moments' and when I would attempt to
do so, I could scarcely bear the pains
that would shoot all through me. I
had tried all kinds of remedies for
this trouble, without finding relief.
Booth's Kidney Pills have done their
work well in my case, and I shall always have a good word of praise for
them." For sale in Grand Forks by

Wellesley Young Man Permanently

Wellesley, Ont. (Special).—That all
diseases of the bladder from bed-wetting lo Gravel are fie direct results
of Kidney Disease, has lieen proved
again and again by Dodd's Kidney
Pills. They cure tlie Kidneys mid
Ilie Bladder disenses speedily disappear. One nf the latest proofs comes
in Ilie experience uf Mr, George
Streiiel, the well-known harness-maker
of this place.
"I wns troubled witli bed-welting
for many years," Mr. St.rehel says.
"The doetor could not Rive ine relief
and no one knows how I suffered. I
tried ninny medicines, till in January,
lOOfi, rending tlie experiences of others
led me lo use Dodd's Kidney Pills.

Tliere is more Catarrh in this section of the country thnn all other dis
eases put together, and until the last
few years was supposed to he incurable. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, and hy constantly failing to cure witli locnl
treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease, and therefore
requires constitutional treatment.

Pensions for Cats and Horses
Old-age pensions arc spreading. But
who would have thought of St. Francis
of Assasi as contributing to so modern
a movement? Nevertheless, the kindly
saint who preached to fishes and birds
is still a factor to be reckoned with.
As witness tlie case of the maiden lady
who died in London recently and
made provision in her will for pen-1
sions for her cats and horses. Her j
orders to her trustees were to the ef-:
feet tliat they are to pay £40 a year for
the care of each of her cats. They are
also to see tliat each animal is properly looked after and treated witli kindness. Her horses also are to be provided for, not allowed to do harder
work than thoy have been accustomed
to, or are to be mercifully destroyed.
All these unusual bequests are explained by tlie further orders of the
will to the effect tliat the kindly provider is to be buried in tlie full habit
of <he Order of St. Francis of Assisi,
to which she belonged.—Dundee Advertiser.

Bliss Carman told at a dinner in
New York a story about James Russell Lowell and a bad boy.
"A Boston woman," said Mr. Carman, "asked Lowell to write in her
autograph album, and the poet, complying wrote the line:
"What is so rare as a day in June?"
"Calling at this woman's house a
few dnys inter, Lowell idly turned the
pages of tlie album until lie came to
his own autograph. Beneath it was
written in a childish scrawl:
" 'A Chinaman  with whiskers.' "

Red Deer Council Makes Firit Move
to Endorse Plan for Establishment
of a Hydro-Electro System by the
Provincial Government—Other Alberta Municipalities are Expected
to Fall in Line.
Edmonton.—Red Deer is the first
municipality to fall in line in connection with the Provincial hydro-electric
scheme. The city commissioners here
received a copy of a resolution passed
at a recent meeting of the town council at Red Deer, which is in effect the
same as that passed by the local coun-
cil recently.
The reso.ution is as follows
"Whereas, as it is deemed that conservation of the water power of the
streams of the province and development of the same by the government
for the benefit of the people as a
whole, is a matter of vital importance
to our future development;
"Be it resolved, that this council
request the government of the province to appoint a commission to investigate the water power resources
of Alberta with a view to the establishment of a hydro-electric system by
the province; and,
"Be it further resolved, that the
council petition the executive council of the union of Alberta municipalities to urge this matter unon the government in the interests of the various
municipalities therein.
It is understood that several other
municipalities have the matter under
consideration and resolutions of the
same nature are expected to be passed
by each of them, with the idea of cooperation in bringing the question before thc government, urging upon
them the necessity of conserving the
natural resources of the province for
the public, and preventing them from
falling into the hands of private capitalists.
Great    Increase    Reported  in  Every
i Department of the
Ottawa.—The seventh triennial convention of the Y. W. C. A. opened here
recently with a large attendance of
delegates from all parts of Canada.
Mrs. Robert Kilgour presided at the
opening sitting, and those in attendance included Her Excellency Countess Grey. Miss Little, B.A., general
secretary, presented Fier report, which
covered a period of three yars.
The work now strelches from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, and bands together over 11,000 young women. In
this great chain of transcontinental
associations new links have been
formed since the convention" of 1907,
held in Montreal. At that time there
were no associations between Winnipeg and Vancouver. Search was made
in vain for accommodation by girls in
the West.
The Dominion council began a system of organizing that overcame much
of this difficulty, with the result that
associations were formed in Brandon,
Moose Jaw, Calgary and Edmonton.
Winnipeg has been a most successful
branch, and has increased threefold.
Halifax and Quebec and Vancouver
have enlarged their belongings, and
Toronto has now four branches.
The number of branches has increased 45 per cent, and the membership 25 per cent, nnd the amount given
to foreign work 80 per cent. Receipts
totalled $31,312. There is a balance
on hand of $1,492.
Spaniard   Named   Zabaldo   Said   by
Army Officer to Have Caused
Kansas City, — The Maine was
anchored over a submarine mine," he
said. "A fanatic Spaniard simply
turned on the switch and caused the
explosion. Jose Zavaldo, a Spanish
electrician, working in Monro castle,
was responsible for the destruction of
the batleship Maine," was the statement made recently by Colonel J.
E. Brady.
Colonel Brady says he wns one of
the  committee  of  four  who  investi-
fated the explosion, and reported to
'resident McKinley.
"Three other army officers, whose
names I do not care to give, and myself, reported to the president that in
our belief Zavaldo was responsible.
He was later executed upon the command of General Blanco. No one,
however, was ever able to learn for
what reason."
Th*   Dutch   Loan   Co,   Heard   That
Western Lands Were Too High
and Refused to Loan Money
Ottawa, Ont.—W. T. R. Preston has
sent a cable to the trade and commerce department with further reference to the Netherlands   Loan   company, which intended to loan money
on western lands, but decided not to
do ao on the strength of an unfavorable report sent out from Montreal,
and which was to the effect that Western lands are held at fictitious values.
Mr. Preston says he has endeavored
I'    to dissuade the company from putting

Had Between Six and Seven Hundred
Inmates and All Are Believed to
Have Been Got Out Safely
Brandon, Man.—In the midst of the
first snow stown of the season a fire
broke out in the Brandon asylum for
the insane, and totally destroyed it
within three hours.
The authorities believe that a'l the
patients are accounted for, they having been removed under guard to outbuildings and the surrounding count, y
putrolled. But it may well be that
wearing no distinctive dress, some of
the patients may have slipped away in
the darkness and falling snow.
Prompt measures were taken to remove the inmates to burrs und outbuildings, where they were guarded,
as many of the patients were violent.
The asylum au.horit.e_ st.-.te that, as
far as can be obtnined, none of thc in-
mntes are missing or seibucly injured.
The man building wns erected in
1889, under the rrg.me of Hon. Thos.
Greenway, as a reformatory, but was
later converted into an asylum, wings
being added in 1903 and 1905.
The authorities state they do not
know the cause of the fire, and rumor
ascribes it varyingly to a guard smoking, to a patient who secured some
mntches, nnd to crossed wires of the
lighting plant.
There were between six and seven
hundred patients confined in the asylum, many of them from Alberta and
Saskatchewan, ns the new provinces,
not having been able to provided suitable accommodation in their own
provinces, have sent many of their
lunatics to the Manitoba institution.

suggested for the impasse with Grent
Britain is successful, they might anticipate the first step towards the
union of the empire. He eulogized
Hon. Mr. Lemieux's settlement of the
Asiatic difficulty in Canada.
The Australian premier, Mr. Fisher,
said nothing had occurred in the
world's history in recent times which
would have greater effect than the

five nations willing to co-opernte in

bonds to see justice done to all people.
Hon. Mr. Lemieux aroused enthusiasm by his eloquent speech. England,
he said, great nnd generous, knowing
a brave foe, makes staunch friends by
granting equality, freedom and self-
government to the two races. Canada

Advocate the Establishment -f an
International Peace Conference to
End Warfare—Present Many Petitions for Amelioration of Conditions
of the Working Class—Premier w!H
Consider Resolutions.
Ottawa, Ont.—Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and Hon. Mackenzie King, minister
of labor were called upon my officers
of tlie Dominion trades and labor
congress und lenders of vnrious inter-
national unions of Canada.
The object of the deputation was to
present resolutions adopted at tile annual congress at Fort William. The
deputation wns bended by .William
Glockling of Toronto, president of the
congress, and included A. Verville, M.
P. P.; J. G. O'Donohue and P. M.
Draper, secretary.
The resolutions of the congress
which were presented to the premier
will be taken into his consideration.
The most important were as follows:
' "That the trades and labor congress
is opposed to the enactment of a compulsory arbitration law.
"That steps shauld be taken to arrange for an international peace conference at which an attempt should be
made to establish a universal poliy
of opposition to international warfare.
"That it is the unanimous desire of
the working classes of Canada that
there should be federal legislation regarding co-operation in order to save
them from the clutches of capital.
"That Provincial autonomy should
be conserved.
"That the age of ohildren eligible for
employment should be raised to sixteen years.
"That there should be legislation
making compulsory the weekly payment of wages in cash, and in cases
where employees are discharged or
where the employee leaves the service
of his employer, nil wnges due must
be paid within twenty four hours, the
employer being held responsible for
expenses consequent upon Ilia fnilure
to comply with the lnw properly."

Clifford's Inn as a home. Sir Henry
Pellatt, responding to the toast to his

Annual Alberta Fair
Edmonton, Alta.—The annual provincial seed fair will be held at La-

Urges  This Colony to Advertise   Its
Resources to the Rest'of the
Melbourne.-—Thomas Tait, who is retiring from the position of manager of
state railways in Victoria, in order to
return to Canada, mnde an important
speech at'a demonstration in his honor. He urged upon his hearers the necessity of'advertising the resources of
Victoria abroad. He was able to draw
upon his experience in Canada and
quote examples of how progress hud
been quickened by advertising.
Regret has been expressed generally
nt the resignation of Mr. Tait. The
magnificent prosperity of the Victoria
government railways at present is considered to be largely due to his administrative ability. It is understood
that he does not propose to re-enter
the railway world but will devote his
attention to his private affairs in Canada. It is now known that he made
a confidential statement to the premier last June of his intention to resign. The public announcement
would have been made had not the
Richmond r.ilwav accident and inquiries arising therefrom precluded
Tait from making any statement of
the kind. He was bound to wait until
some decision had been reached by the
government ns to the apportionment
of the responsibility for that disaster.
Prince Announces That   Government
Is   Considering   Necessity   of
Establishing Ons
Pekin.—It is believed tlie throne has
decided to accede to the demand of
the senate and the provincial delegates
for the early convocation of a provincial parliament.
In the senate, and in the presence
of leading grand councillors, Prince
Yu Liang, a member of the grand
council, stnted thnt the entire nation,
from tlie highest to the lowest, was
agreed upon the necessity of tlie early
establishment of a general parliament.
The senators, who understood this
to menu thut their memorial would
be granted, received the declaration
of the prince with loud and prolonged cheering.
Thc importance of this concession
on the part of the government can be
scarcely over-estimuted in view of
its recent refusal to entertain a sim-
lar request made by a delegation from
the provincial assemblies lust June.

"I nm keenly in ifavor of a federal
parliament which may deal with all
questions of imperial interest. Imperial defence is a question which is
being much discussed in Canada. Th*
more it is discussed by influential
Canadians the more do they realize
that thc time has arrived when there
should be an attempt at establishing
a union of the British states. Canada
is already a nation and if, through
nny misfortune or laek of appreciation on our part of her position, she
should become separated from the
mother state, there would be grave
danger for both of us. National
jealousy as well as national ambition would cast lingering eyes on that
great province, British Columbia, and
it would be impossible for Canada to
withstand any nntion, sny Japan,
seeking an opportunity of extending
her area, or prevent the annexation
by such power of that great Dominion.
From the standpoint of security oi
their great nutionnl asset it is essential
that behind the Canadian Government
and its provinces there should be the
silent, forceful power of the British
navy and British prestige."

Text of the Lesson, Matt, xxiv, 32-51.
Memory Verse, 44—Golden Text,
Matt, xxvi, 41—Commentary Prepared by Rev. D. M. Stearns.
The greater part of this great discourse is recorded by botli Mark and
Luke as well us hy ivmitliew. As they
left the temple one dny His disciples
culled His attention to tlie greut buildings with the goodly stones nnd gifts,
und they were vviyifntly greatly sur-
piised by His remurk that ull would
be tin-own down und not one stone left
upon another. Four of them cunie to
him privntely us He sat upon the
Mount of Olives und asked Him u
question which wus really threefold,
though they probably thought it one.
Tne destruction of the temple. His
coming again and the end of the age
were two, if not three, distinct events.
ln His discourse he covered tlie reply
to all. The whole uge until He shall
come again will be chaiaeterized by
wars, families, pestilences and earthquakes, with increasing wickedness
until it shall bc as it wi_s in the days
of Noah.
In Luke xxi. 24, He very plainly referred to the approaching destruction
of Jerusalem and covered this present
uge by the words, "Jerusalem shall be
trodden down-of the gentiles until the
times cf the .gentiles be fulfilled."
With this veise we should associate
Rom. xi, 25, 28. Many of the circumstances connected with tlie destruction
of Jerusalem were foreslindowings of
those at the end of the age, and the
warnings lire therefore similar.
Verses 27-31 of our lesson chapter
spenk pla nly of His coming in power
und glory immedintely nfter the greut
tabulation at the end ot this age. The
destruction of Jerusalem wus in no
sense His coming, for it is written in
Psalm cii, 16, that when He shnll np-
penr in His glory He will build up
Zion, not destroy it. He is coming
again to restore all things of whicli
the prophets hnve spoken ^Acts iii,
Tlie events in the enst today are
most startling if considered in the
light of verses 32-35 of our lesson
and compel us to believe that the
kingdom of God is ngnin ut hnnd after
the long interval of its postponement
during this age. The zeal and aim of
Zioni m, the new regime in Turkey,
her favor to the Jews, a lprge part of
thc lnnd given to Abraham (Mesopotamia) being now offered to them, and
the unrest among the nations generally, all point to the approaching end
of the age an<| the coming of the kingdom. How marvellously has the generation or race or nation of Isruel been
preserved for the fulfillment of all
things (verse 34), and soon now shall
they be recognized as a nation, perhaps under the suzerainty of Turkey,
with Jerusalem as their capital. That
will, however, menn for them the beginning of their great trouble (Jer.
xxx, 7) ere Jerusalem shall become
the throne of the Lord at His coming
in glory to set up His kingdom. That
Israel is God's fig tree as well as His
vine, see Joel i, 7, and note the events
of Joel iii in their order. The utter
ungodliness of thc days of Noah cannot be fully manifest until after the
church is taken, but the manifestations already on every bond in churoh
and state nre most unmistakable. The
war ciuze of nntions, the unrighteousness of government in cities end
states, the infidelity in the seminaries
and in the pulpits, the disregard of
God nnd His word everywhere, should
compel us to cry, "Come, Lord Jesus."
At the coming of Christ to tlie air for
His snints the true church shall be
taken, all others left, but ut the coming to the enrth wilh His snints nt tho
end of the age the tures shull first be
gathered in bundles tor the burning.
"Rendy" in the great word for us nil,
ns we snw in a recent lesson. No unsaved person, whether mornl or im-
inornl, sober or drunken, drunken ue-
cording to Isn. xxviii, 7, or xxix, 9, is
rendy except for tlie burning, the
weeping nnd gnashing of teeth (verse
51; xxv, 41).  The readiness necessary
has been provided in .'esus Christ by
His Paints the true church shull be
His greet atonement. His pure life,
His dentil in our stead, suffering for
our sins, His resurrection from the
deiid, nnd nny who will not plead
guilty nnd accept Him nnd His righteousness must perish und be separated
from Him.
If we rre redeemed ond thus ready
to meet Him we must never ceise to
wntcli nnd prny, lest the world, tha
flesh or the devil cause our light to
fail or even to flicker, nnd we thus
dishonor Hiin. "Fnithful nnd wise" is
the only motto thnt will enable us to
be approved of Him (46). We must
bewnre of saying or even of thinking,
"My Lord dilnyctli His coming" (48),
lest wc be found cureless nnd conformed in some measure to this present evil age. The oil of the next chapter must fill our lumps, and the light
must so shine tliat men mny see our
good works nnd glorify, our Futher
which is in heaven (Matt, v, 10). The
only proper attitude of a child of God
is waiting for His Son from heaven,1'
"lookim. fir thnt blessed hone" (1
Thess. i. 10; Titus ii. 13), nnd while
thus expectantly waiting, aiming in
all things to serve the living nnd true
God. Ever rendy to do whntever our
Lord nnd King shnll appoint (II Sam.
xv, 15). "Rendy to every good work"
(Tit. iii. 1). "Rendy always to give

Pruning Fruit Trees
1. Prune heavily when the tree is
young, so ns to give it the frame-
Work desired.
2. Quit pruning when ' the tree
gets uhler
'A. Cut off the fruit spurs frnm the
main branches just as soon us they
5, Dn nil you Can tn discourage
wood growth;
Do not he afraid of taking the
fruit off the (roe when you are suu]
mer priming. Prune down until
you have u reasonable nmount of
fruit left, and do nnt leave too
many. Thin after you prune. The
pruning is used largely as thinning.
You can advantageously prune
the pear tree during tho first summer. Select nnd cut to the "outer
buds" on the branches, so ns to
throw the framework of the tjee
outward. Save twelve inches of
clean, clear stem. Select a good,
strong hud on the inside of the middle limb, and seek constantly to
turn the growing branches ontward,
so ns to make an open, strobg top
through which the sun's rays will
penetrate nml thenlr circulate freely.
At the third pruning commence
to remove every indication of a fruit
spur from the main stem. Keep
them off entirely iu n circle reaching
over half the top of thrj tree. Prune
very hard up to the fourth year and
Up to the beginning of the growth of
the fifty yeur. From this time on
you are to prune for fruit. Do
nothing to accelerate a heavy wood
growth after the four years of
• growth. We would change as quickly as the season changes . from one
system of pruning to the other; that'
is, change from winter pruning for
wood to slimmer pruning for fruit.
Wc follow this system with pears in
order to produce a hard wood whicli
is resistant to pear blight.
After the change from winter to
summer pruning, do just as little
pruning during the winter months,
cutting out all crossed and diseased
branches, hut leave most of the
pruning for August. This is after
thc trees are four years old.
In thc case of a four-yenr-old pear
tree which has not had the severe
cutting hack as outlined above, and
if it is a well grown tree, practice
Bummer pruning at the lirst opportunity. If it is not well grown or
properly formed, we would do a little winter pruning to get the branch
es in di sired places. A healthy
pear tree can lie cut back severely.
In the case of cherry trees yon
will have a very strong wood growth,
straight and upright, a one year-old
tree sometimes reaching'live feet in
height, Usually it has lots of good,
strong buds all the way up, It may
have a branch or two. . If it is a
straight, switch, we cut it off 2-1 to
;!(i inches from the ground. We want
thc branches as far apart as possible
on account of gumosis. If cherry
branches are all together in a case of
this kind the load will become too
heavy. Cracking and splitting will
pnBUe, and the tree will become subject to gumosis. As the limbs increase in size, they will crowd together, splitting mul cracking.
Cut back the cherry tree as severely as you do the pear tree for
the lirst four or live years. With
cherry trees you do heavy pruning
for wood ivlieu the leaves are oil the
tree, and the last pruning is done in
spring. Injury muy happen to
your sweet cherries by freezing or
thawing, in which case we let them
stand until the hud starts in the
spring. Then we pru.ie. The essential points are:
1. Prune heavily while the cherry
tree is young.
2. Get good, strong, active growth.
'6. When the   trees are  three or j
lour years old, change to sunnier
pruning almost the suine us you do'
with the pear.
4. Instead of pruning just before
the crop is harvested, prune to correspond to the time just after it is
Tbe Bing cherry, if given half a
chance, will hold its leaves late in
the ialj, until the first heavy frosts.
The cambium layer of wood is in
this way killed. In the spring such
a trej will start out just as usual,
and will then die. Do not permit
the tree to grow too late, but harden
il up so it will lose Ub leaves early
in the Fall. Irrigating too lute in
the fall may produce this trouble.
In setting out peach orchards We
prefer June buds, though the use of
yearling treeB is not discouraged entirely. Cut thc June bud from 12
to 15 inches of lhe ground. Prune
it severely. The yearling trees may
he 12 to 15 inches, or even two feet.
Cut them back severely. On rich
soil a growth of three to five feet
will take plnce the first season.
Three to five branches are all that is
necessary in the framewo-k of a
peach tree, though five to seven are
used in other trees. Treat sour cherries the same way, using a little bit
longer stem. The sour cherry will
not get high anyway. Prune very
much the same as you do for apples, leaving them a little longer
than the apples. Frequently we
leave these 18 to 24 inches in length.
Wc pay very little attention to the
small brunches that appear. Just let
them stay as they nre. Suppose you
nre planting a one year-old peach
tree, and it bus a, lot of brandies on
it. You may treat them in two ways:
(1) Cut these close to. the stem,- not
injuring the little hnd on each side
of the stem, of course; or (2) strip
ihem off two inches in length.
Either way will give satisfactory returns. Then get the branches headed hack. Do not ''shear" the tree.
Prune it.—I'rof. W. 8, Thornber, in
the November Fruit Magazine.
Felling Trees With Wiie
A method "f felling trees wilh no
oilier tools thnn a tuut wire and a
motor has been devised by a clever
German inventor. The use of a wire
heated by an electric current, to
hurt] its wuy through the tree, we
are reminded by Cosmos, hns long
been known The Berlin inventor.
Hugo (biiilke, has simplified this
process by euii-iug the wire to become incandescent through the
work it does itself.
This result is obtained in his sye-
lem by the friction of n steel wire
one twenty-fifth of an inch in diam
eter, which, experience has shown,
may traverse a trunk 20 inches thick
in six minutes. The wire, which is
given an excessively rapid to an'd-
fro motion by an electric motor, becomes heated by the friction to a
temperature high enough to hum
the wood and penetrate it rapidly.
The lesult is n neater cot than that
made with a saw. The wire 'severs
the largest trunks without the necessity of opening the cut with wedges,
and the tree may be cut ut any desired place, even below the ground,
so that no protruding stump is left.
'I'he electric current maybe brought
to the place from a distant station.
Such a station may beestablishedNit
the border of the forest; a gasoline
motor of 10 horsepower and a dynamo are all that is needed. By this
means, the huge trees that are met
with in tropical forests, whote diameters often exceed ten feet, may be
felled by a single executioner. The
method has, in all cases, the immense advantage that it prevents the
loss of wood that results from the
