Architect   Carrie  Submits
Sketch for a $17,000
Rear Addition
Tuesday night, at the regular meeting of the school trustees, fresh designs were received from Architect Carrie,
of Nelson, showing a rear
plan addition to the Central
school building, the estimated
cost of the same being, approximately, $17,000. As the
government grant for the construction of the building is
only $12,080, the board decided to ask the city council
for an additional grant of
$.5000. If this request is re
fused, new plans will have to
be prepared.

There is still every reason
to believe that we are eoming
into a big speculative market
in the coppers and that prices
will go very much higher.
Copper is selling around 17£
cents «id likely to go to 20
or 25 cents, and as yet the
stock market has not discounted a 15-cent metal market.—Boston Commercial.
Speaking of the advance in the
price of copper to 17 cunts, the high
est price since A ugutt, 1907, when
tbe overage was 18.35 cents, Financial America says':
The advance was brought ubout
by a renewal of buying for the account of foreign and domeBt consumers, and at lbe close tbe indi
cations pointed to the early estab-
inent of tbe metal ou a better tban
17 cent basis.
As predicted in certain quarters
the demand for copper developed
greater activity and at least one large
producing interest sold practically all
of ita August copper. Quite an urgent demand also existed for spot
copper, or for copper for nearby de'
livery, but very little of the product
was obtainable. Europe continues to
take substantial quanticies of the
metal, indicating tbe continued
heavy consumption abroad, especially in Germany and France, wbere
larger quantities are being used tban
for some time past. In other conti
nental countries consumption also
shows a fair degree of expansion.
In this country copper consumption also is on a larger scale, tbe in
quiry from wire and brass manu
facturers being a very encouraging
factor in tbe situation. Notwithstanding the political developments
business generally shows a gradual
increase in nearly all lines, and with
clarification of tbe political situation
it is believed still greater activity in
all branches of trade will develop.
Although the statistical position
of the metal hns not been so strong
in yeara as il is at tbe present time,
all indications point to a further
merterial strengthening in this respect, and thu May statement of the
Copper Produecrs' association, lo be
issued next Monday, will in all
probability show stocks of the metal
on hand to be at the lowest point in
years. According to some reliable
authorities, deliveries to domestic
consumers last month were fully as
large aa in April, if not larger, while
expur'sto Europe showed a substantial increase over those of tbe
preceding months, the aggregate being approximately 07,000,000 lbs.,
according to tbe United States,cus
toms house returns.
It is estimated that tbe total deliveries in May aggregated from 135,-
000,000 to 140,000,000 pounds. The
production of the refineries wsb interfered with by strikes at the Baltimore plant and also at tbe plant ot
the Nichols Copper company at
Laurel Hill,   L.I.,   although   the
short duration and did not materially affect operations. At the Baltimore plant, however, the labor trouble last for at least a week which probably reduced tbe output of the
plant by 5,000,000 or 6,000,000
pounds and perhaps to greater extent. On this account estimates of
the month's totol refinery output
are placed at about 125,000,00
pounds which would indicate a
probable decrease in stocks during
the month of May of approximately
The fortnightly statistics issued io
London also are expected to show a
further shrinkage in supplies in
wbich event the world's visible supply of the metal will have reached
a very low level.

Tho disappparance of the queue in
the British Islns. It was recently
noted a_i of peculiar interest tliat the
3ueue was seen on lho streets of I.on-
o.i so recently 1.3 the year 1855. Yet
surely so far buck as that the wearing
of it could not have been such a
rarity cither in England or Scotland.
Not "further hack than the year 1885
says Mr. David Ross, of 456 Marguer-
etta street, lie eamo acrosi an nged
man residing in an outlying part ot
Lochliroom. a parish in Rosshirc. in
tha north cf Scotland, who then wore
tin queue and had done so habitually
ever since he had arrived nt manhood. This old man of the rocks may
have lived for 11 few years longer, tint
in any. case he expressed himself
firmly resolved to continue wearing it
to tha end. as his forefathers had
done, he said.
From a fairly extensive knowledge
of the different pints of the British
Isles the writer limits that this old
man was probably the last to wear
the queue us un every day habit.
There are natives of Lochbroom in
many parts ot Canada who undoubtedly ean recall this old man and corroborate as lo the date given ahove.
Tho hamlet, or township, in Lochbroom in which tlio old man resided
was called Reef—a most dangerous
promontory for navigators, extending
far out into thc Atlantic.
Carlyle't Lettera.
A naive compliment to Carlyle's
powers of letter-writing is mentioned
ny   a correspondent  of  The   British
' Weekly. While slaying at Kccle-
fechan last summer he visited the
birthplace of Carlyle, and was shown
over the house by the old lady caretaker. The letters of Carlyle to his
friend  Mitchell   of  Linlithgow   were,
• to the visitor, the most interesting
things in the house, and he spent two
hours going through them. When he
was leaving he remarked to tho old
lady that the letters wero so very interesting ono could spend hours reading and re-reading them. "Yes," sho
replied, "I don't know much about
Carlyle's book, but many a half hour
I have spent reading thes.0 letters
when I should have been vorking. I
haven't so much time now, so, when
I come up here to duct, 1 just leave

Famous Old Masterpiece It Known
as  "tha   Miracle   Painting."
Combining the value cf a rare old
picture with lbe virtue of a sacred
relic, what is known as "The Miracle fainting" hangs iu tbe Basilica
at the Shrine of Ste. Anne de Beau-
pre. This masterpiece was painted
by Charles Le Brun tor ths Marquis
de Tracey Th the year 1615, and its
recent restoration revives an interesting history of the votive offering to
"l.a Bonne Ste. Anne."
The Marquis de Tracey was a special ambassador to New France sent
out by Louis XV., and his mission
wa.a both political and for the purpose of obtaining accurate information as to the various intrigues that
were disrupting the colony. He is
said to have also made a voyage of
discovery to Hudson Bay. During
his stay at Quebec he desir-d tn be
cured of some lnng-enduretl malady,
and with bis countess made a devout
pilgrimage to the famous shrine,
wjiich even in those remote days was
deemed a place of wondrous miracles.
80 profound was his gratitude for
benefits derived from this devotion,
he forthwith announced his intention
of donating an altar-piece to the
shrine, a form of bequest much in
favor at that time.
Charles Le Brun, the noted Kronen
artist, was at the zenith of hi.i successful career as a painter ol historical portraits and religious subjects.
To him the marquis entrusted the
commission for the altarpiece, specify-
ing with much exactitude the composition of the painting. The central
figures of Ste. Anne instructing tbe
Blessed Virgin were to be copied from
Ruben's original work, whicli is now
in the Antwerp Gallery. The figure
of Joseph was to be omitted. The por-
traits of the Count and Countess de
Tvaccy were to be placed on either
side, in attitudes of devotion, and depicted as pilgrims. The Eternal Father and angels and the dove descending were to be seen hovering above,
and the coat of arms of the Tracey
family waa to be placed in tbe centre
ol the picture below. Le Bruu has
worked out this composition with
wonderful fidelity, and now that the
accumulated dirt of centuries has
been removed, the details of the picture may be plainly seen. The painting was ordered in 1615, arriving et
Ste. Anne the following year, and has
since remained there as the altarpiece
of the vestry.
The work of restoration lias recently been completed by Mr. J. Pur-
ves Carter, art curator of Laval University, under instructions from the
Redeinptorist Fathers, who have
charge of the many interesting sacred relics preserved nt the shrine.
Advlca to Municipalities.
Frank advice to Canadian._inimici-
palities desiring to borrow in London
is tendered by Tho Financial Times,
in referring to the postponement of
loans by the cities of Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. Tbe failure of the
recent Vancouver issue to obtain
public support is given as the principal reason fc- the postponement of
these proposed loans and ihe cause
of this fiasco as well as the difficulty
now being experienced in placing
Canadian municipal issues is stated
to lie witb the municipalities themselves, the reason being that the
municipal authorities have a too exalted idea of tbeir credit and are not
disposed to listen to thc advice constantly tendered by the financial
"An instance of this," says Tho
Financial Tim*--., is' provided by
Montreal. In the early part of February, when Montreal was making
enquiries about a new loan, tlie statement was made iu the Montreal press
that the Bank of Montreal, the city's
financial agents in London, had stated
that an issue of $5,000,000 of four per
cent, stock could bc made at 90 per
cent., but the city authorities would
not accept such a price, and the suggestion wus made that a better price
could be obtained in Paris.
"Tlio policy which the Canadian
municipalities havo been pursuing is
to give tlm- loans to tho highest bidder. It has been repeatedly pressed
upon the municipalities tbat they
should place themselves iu the hands
of tbeir financial agents to do the
best for them, iu. lead of going outside, nnd they aro now being forced
to realize, to their own discomfiture,
that it is heller to follow their ftniin-
cUl agent's ndvic.."
Motoring Through Canada.
A recent Issue of T/jrd Montagu of
Beaulieu's paper, "The Car," contains
a tour-page article contributed by
the Hon. Margaret Amherst, who recently -made nn extensive motor tour
through the Dominion, accompanied
by several well-known society folk,
among whom was Mr. Evelyn Cecil,
M.P., whose photograph., illustrate
the article. Alluding lo the ubiquity
of the motor car in Canada, the writer says:
"In Eastern cities it is natural
enough, but in the West it is certainly surprising to find it in such gen-
t"! ":;. *ii"Motiireal, lo'.jiito, and
Ottawa, cars, with their 'hooters' and
odor of petrol, are as much a feature
of St. Catherine street, or Yange

Piccadilly, and'the smart appearance
of their up-to-date bodies, occupied
by chic and fashionable owners, is
in 110 way behind that of their London contemporaries."

'Xf&ffl/     Don't let repairs
eat up your profits
Whether they represent actual cash outlay, or
only the time of yourself and your help, repairs
are waste just the same.   When you make an
improvement—no matter how small-it., cost may.
be—let it be permanent.  Then it is a real investment, something on which you can realize in cash should you decide to
sell your property; and something that will pay you constant
dividends in convenience, sightliness and comfort as long as
the farm remains your own.
Concrete Improvements Are Permanent
They last as long as the very hills themselves. They do not
require experts to build them. Their firfct cost, in most cases,
is no more than for inferior materials.

Alaskgn MeequKoes.
Mosquitoes in the icebound northern country are a plague beyond reliel. They come to life about the
middle ot May, before the ground ia
thawed out and while many leet ot
ice still covers the lakes and all but
the swiftest rivers. Stagnant, Bun-
h eat a.d water Is not ln the least necessary. They breed in the glaciers
wherever a bit ot earth or manure
has melted a little pool. Tneir
wrigglers are seen ln running ice
water, By the 1st ot June it Ib uncomfortable to sleep without protec-
tection, and from that time on until
September, when the flrst froBts
have benumbed them, especially during the warm, rainy season of July
and August, they become a never-
ceasing scurge, swarming In thousands. The Alaskan mosquitio ls
small, brown, silent, and very much
in earnest. He never sings a
warning nor fools about selecting a
spot to taste, but, says a sufferer,
comes In a bee-line with his probe
and gets ln to action. .Every inch ot
your clothing ls industriously bored,
so that you look like an animated
brown cocoon, and the slightest exposed spot on wrist or neek Is promptly set on lire. I experimented
with a small hole In my glove. After Ihe first mosquito had found the
opening others came in quick succession to the spot. He left some
microscopic '.'kind lady and no dog"
sign there, If I killed the first and
left his carcass it servedNas a warning not at all, The others came the
faster, lind the more I killed the
more eager tho survivors became,
perching quite unmoved on the remains of their confreres.

Distribution Of 8exes. .
X German economist. Herr Gulisc-
fcambarof, has recently made some
calculations concerning the population
ot the world, says the Globe, and he
arrives at the conclusion that there
are _.,7»0, 000,000 souls, From the
point of view of sex, he possesses
some data concerning 1,038,000,000
and he finds that ot these 521,700,000
as males and 618,300,000 are females,
consequently on the aggregate, the
professor concludes, there are 000 females for every thousand men. Herr
Gullschambarof finds the same distribution beyond Europe, In Africa
women preponderate, and the ratio
ls greater than that of Europe, for
In the black continent there are 1,046
females for every thousand men,
compared with 1,027 women to the
same number In Europe.
In the three other divisions of the
world women are ln the minority. In
America they count for every thousand men 004 women, ln Asia 901,
and ln Australia 937. In Africa that
part were the women population ls
greatest In Uganda, where for a thousand men they count no fewer than
14$7 women. The female population shows weakness in the Western
and North-Western States of EEast-
em Australia. The greatest paucity
ot women ' lt to be found In Alaska
and the Malay States, where for 10M
men we find only 391 and 389 women

A Sheet That Couldn't Bs Turned.
Thero ls In London a gentleman
who has given up several yeara of hla
lite to a crusade against the ordinary
sheet. He has Invented a sheet
which cannot be turned by the maker
of the bed, so that the sleeper Is always sure of being between the same
surfaces. He holds that very few
hotels give to each border a clean
pair ot sheets, and that the proprietors havo an unpleasant habit of
turning them, or ironing them, and
then calling them clean. "Few people realise," says the Inventor, "that
an ordinary pair of sheets can be put
on a bed In 32 different positions. It
ls an appalling thought that one may
bo the thirty-second person to sleep
between those sheets.

In one of the interior counties of
Maine a case was called thut had
long been in litigation. The chief
justice—who at tbat time was plain
Judge Petere—thought (it impruuti
cable to keep tbe suit longer in
court, and advised the parties to re
fer the matter.
After due deliberation they assented, agreeing to refer tbe case to
three honest men.
With a grave smile, in perfect
keeping witb judicial dignity, Judee
Peters said that the case involved
certain legal points which would require one of tbe referees, at last, to
have some knowledge of the law;
therefore be would suggest the propriety of Ibeir selecting one lawyer

Fruit Prospects in British
Columbia Were Never
W. J. Bjandrith, provincial exhibitions commissioner, who haa recently travelled tbrough practieally
every fruit growing district in tbe
province, makes tbe following statement regarding the prospects of the
fruit crop:
"Tbere never was auch a crop of
fruit in sight in British Columbia as
there is tcday. And the splendid
proswects for a record-breaking crop
( are not confined to any one section
or to any one variety of fruit. Every
portion of the province as far as my
observation bas gone and all kinds
of fruit, with tbe exception possibly
of raspberries, which will be light,
seem certain to share in the remarkable crop tbat is foreshadowed by
present conditions in the agricul-
tiual districts.
"During my travels over the province I bave seen in no place any indication that the frosts last winter or
last spring were sufficient to injure
tbe crop*."
In addition to the dry farming
congress at Lethbridge, Mr. Brandrith states tbat the provincial government will exhibit this year at
Winnipeg, Brandon, Regina, Saska
toon, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa,
and London, Ont. At tbe capital
city tbe occasion will be tbe Dominion fair, while at Toronto the
province will show at the  Canadian

the heat picture ever offered newspaper readen. It in entitled "Hume
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation.
"Laddie," a collie ilo(j, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winner.-
of many prizes at dog snows, the pride of the family nml neighborhood,
has been stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning wilh the rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings bislitlle mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
sbe throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on ber shoulder and resting his bead against her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a womnn of soft curves, lender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with bair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture lhat will win a favored place
on tbe walls'of any home.      j.

his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.

observed a crusty old bachelor, "as
was evidenced recently ln the household of a frluu.l of mine, whose wife
has always prided herself on the elr
ciiinslHiii e that she looks 011 the

"At anyrato, dear, lt was most forlu-

Reckless Bonuslng of Branch Lines—
The Question Carefully Considered.
The present railway situation calis
for careful consideration. On the one
hand the development of Northwestern Canada demandB railway facilities, and on the other lt is possible
that railroads may be constructed In
wrong districts and more Important
localities be neglected. The fact ls
undeniable that hundreds ot miles of
branch roads have been and are being
constructed that cannot possibly pay
the Interest on tho first cost, to say
nothing of the cost of equipment and
operation. Look at the parallel lines
through the three western provinces.
In many places there are three lines
where the whole ot the traffic obtainable in the district Is only sufficient
for one. Many of these roads are not
ten miles apart, and ln several places
they ore not two.
On examining any good railroad
map of Western Canada we find that
these parallel lines aggregate hundreds of miles of railway, while there
are many thounands of square miles
of virgin territory entirely without
the rairoad facilities they so urgently
need and which they must have or
the continued development of the
country will be seriously checked.
The trouble arises from the facility
with which railway charters can be
obtained, and the hnnuslng system.
To illustrate: Say half a dozen men
of no particular linancial standing,
me.et and decide to get a charter for
a railway. They decide ou a scheme
and OBk the government for a charter. A little lobbying ot parliament or
legislature and they get all they ask
for. They then ask for a bonus and
get a bond guarantee for (13,000.00
a mile. The next step is to organize
a construction company among themselves. The bonds are sold, the cash
ls to hand, and the contracts for construction of the lines are given to the
construction company. Maybe John
Smith Is president of the railway
company, and the same John Smith
Is president of the construction company. So John Smith and the directors of. the railway company award
the contracts to John Smith and
directors of the construction company
at tbelr own high figures. In short
they contract with themselves, pay
themselves out ot the proceeds of the
sale of the guaranteed bonds, aud
pocket the profit.
Tliat was the old scheme, but the
new one go«s It one better—it Ib to
organize a Branch Lines Company,
aud get a charter and a bond guarantee entirely Independent of the trunk
line oompany. They can now reap
all the advantages gained by a construction coinpany, but the trunk Hue
company disowns all responsibility.
Should the branch lines fail to make
good, the trunk Hue company can refuse to be accountable for Its actions,
and can leave It to .v.lft. for Itself.
The results may be that the interest
on the bonds of the branch lines company Is not paid and they will then
call on the government to pay it.
Thus the trunk line company will
have all the beneflt of the traffic they
would have got In any case, the
branch lines company will pocket all
the profits they made on construction,
and the people will pay the piper.
Of course this game could only be
worked 011 a railway bonused by
guaranteed bonds. It could not be
manipulated in constructing branch
lines, on a road that paid the entire
cost ot their construction and operation, without bond guarantee, out of
Its own treasury.
Is it not time to call a halt In thiB
bonuslng business and the indiscriminate giving ot charters to railway
promoters. The credit of the provinces Is not unlimited. Every million dollars worth ot bonds guaranteed Is a million dollars taken from
their borrowing power. The time will
come when the limit will be reached
and at the rate we are now going it
will not take a very long time before
that limit will be passed.
There Is now a congestion ln the
transportation of grain. The opening
ot every branch line Increases this
congestion. We are told that It production continues to Increase as it
haB Increased during the past few
years the railways will not bu able
to handle mora than forty per cent,
of the grain crop of 1915 before the
close of navigation unless the railways double track their main lines.
Is it not time to put an end to this
insane bonuslng of branch lines until
provision is made for sending our Immense harvests to the markets of the

"Ves, siree," ejaculated Ananias Sllne
as lie bitched bl* chair a little nearer
the rcdbot stove In Janes Honey's
' etore,- "1 could tell you the strangest
atory yon ever listened (o In all your
life lf I didn't have to go to supper
now. That's the trouble with hotels
and boarding houses. If you ain't
around at meal times you don't get
enough to eat It's poor enough aa'tis
without being scrimped on It."
.tabes Honey looked both anxioua
aud apprehensive. He wanted lo hear
the story tbat Ananlns would tell so
convincingly that one could almost believe It, even Ananias himself. Then,
again, the price of the,story would bo u
supper served, to Ananias from tbe
shelves of tbe grocery atore. If Jabes
did not fall td tbe bait ot the hinted
elory, why, Ananias would simply carry bis tale across the street to Drake's,
wbere tbe clerks would be glad enough
to hand out anything Ananias asked
for rather tban to miss one of his stories.
It was a stormy winter evening. It
had been snowing for an hour, and
now. at supper time, tbe flakes were
burling themselves against the store
wludows wltb Utile hissing spats that
boded u long storm. It was lonely In
Jabes Honey's store. The loungers
wero more likely to frequent Drake's
larger store.    *
"As I wns snylng, If I had time 1
could tell you tho queerest story you
ever heard," repeated Anaulas, rising
to his feet and buttoning his overcoat.
"Ho, hum!" ho yawned. "Guess I'll
stop lu Drake's a minute. Good night,
Jabez."   :
"What's the use of going?" asked Jabez weakly. "Can't yon pick up a
supper here? I'll treat so long as
you're going to entertain me with a
"i don't mind If I do," ssld Ananias
with alacrity, and he whipped out of
his overcoat, tossed It on u convenient
barrel aud rubbed bis bands expectantly.
Jabez got up and moved toward the
cheese case. "Wbat'll you have!" be
asked. "Crackers and cheese and a
glass of sweet elder?"
"Hum!" grumbled Ananlns, frowning. "I've kinder cut out cheese and
rrackers, Jabez. Tbey seem, to give
me Indigestion.
"Well," began Ananias between huge
bites of a corned beef snodwleh, "It
was when 1 was sailing past tho Weary Islands down In the south Pacific
that thia adventure happened to me.
We was bound home from Calcuttn.

If you expect Captain Kith to substantiate tbls story you'll be disappointed, because he was always a Jealous

"As I was saying, we sailed past the
I Weary Islands and was leaving 'em
I far astern when Captain Fish took a
I notion that Ihe water we'd taken on
1st Calcutta was bad tasting, and so
I we put back to Ihe Wearys for a sup-
[ply of fresh water. Tou can't beat
I Ibem tropical Islands for cold, spark-

"The outermost one of the Weary
■Islands Is a tiny little one that Is separated from the others by forty miles

Flsb snid It wss an old Island and
had been much bigger, only an earthquake had swallowed most of It Into
the water, and what wa* left ef lt
wasn't enough to support human existence, sll of which I didn't believe a
mlte of.
" 'Ananias,' says the captain to me,
'you go ashore and get the water,'

some kegs to fill the big butt* which

to look for a aprlng, and 1 found It not
far from the white beacb. I sat th*

around for more springs nnd also to
see tf there wss any fruit on tbe Island.  I'm kinder partial to eocoanuts.
"While 1 was looking I poshed further Into the Jungly growth until 1
finally came out on tbo otber side of
tbe Island, and there above me was a

Just one cocoanut. Dark brown It

look coming Into bis little eyes.

bis fist again.

as humble ns 1 could muster, for I

wanted to henr the story,

Island, and Captain Flsb took the foreigner aboard the Indus and let hint

Jabes Honey smiled quizzically at
the abashed story teller.
"That was a good story, Ananias,"
he said as he removed tbe debris of
Mr. Sllne's feast, "most as good a*

But Ananias bad vanished Into th*

Writing Which May Bt Made Invliibls
or Visible at Will.
There are several ways In which two
persons can correspond witb each other unknown to even tbe people before
whose eyes the very letter Is held. Ovid
taught young women when writing to
their lovers tbey should use new milk

but by scattering coal dust or soot upon
tbe paper tbe writing becomes legible.
Ansonlus ndopled this method wben

Diluted sulphuric acid, lemon Juice,
solutions of nitrate and chloride of
cobalt or of chloride ot copper write
colorless, but on being boated the characters written with the flrst Iwo become block or brown and the latter

the writing disappears nnd leaves tbe
paper blank ngaln. Saltpeter dissolved
In water and equal parts of sulphate ot
copper and sal nmmonlnc dissolved ln

There are nlso some inks which are
Invisible when dry, but risible when

A Remarkable Fish Story.
Delivering an address at the Sur*
veyora' Institution in London recently, Mr. Julian C. Rogers quoted the
following from Kilburno's topography
uf Kent, published in 1867, a copy ol
which was in the library:
"A monstrous fish shot himself
ashore (in Thanet), where frnm want
of water he died, aa fish sometime*
iln under such circumstances. His
roaring was heard above a mile. His
length was 22 yards, his nether jaw
opening 12 feci. Ono of his eyes was
more than a cart with six horses
could drsw, his tongue waa 15 feet,
and his liver two cart-loads.

Valuable Clay at Orient
In an article published in the
Spokane Chronicle describing the
big $100,000 factory of the Clay
Product company at Spokane, praise
is given to the slip clay shipped by
W. J. Gilpin from Orient, as follows:
"After passing through the drier
the pottery that requires glazing is
taken to the glazing room-, and after
being dried again,is pat in the kiln
to burn. The white glaze is secured
by a combination of calcium carbonate; zinc oxide,feldspar, clay and
flint, and the black and brown glaze
iB secured by natural slip clay found
at Orient, Wash.
"The slip clay deposit at Orient is
one of the most valuable elay deposits in the country, there being
only two other places in the United
States in which slip clay or natural
glaze is found."
Laurier Mine
A report from Laurier states that
Ihe long tunnel in the Laurier mine
has struck ore, says the Orient Journal. Work on this tunnel has been
in progress off and on for the past
three years or more. Extremely
bard rock has caused comparatively
slow headway until the last few
weeks, when a softer formation has
been encountered.
The Letter of the Law
A mother led her six children to
the apple tree. Il had home but a
single apple—no longer visible to the
casual observer. "I told you not to
pick that apple," she said sternly.
"We didn't pick it!" the children
answered in chorus And the oldest
girl added in injured tone, "You
see yourself that it's still on the
tree. I—I mean the core is! We
only climbed up nn'—an' took a bite
mice in a while—we didn't pick it'.'J

Character in Walking
Obstinate people *»ho, in argument, rely more on muscularity
than on intellectual power, rest the
feet flatly and firmly on the ground,
walk heavily and slowly, and stand
with legs firmly planted and far
apart. Quick steps are indicative of
energy and agitation.
Tiptoe walking symbolizes sur
prise, curiosity, discretion, or mystery. Turning-in toes are often found
with pre-occupied, absent minded
persons. The miser's walk iB represented as stooping and noiseless,
with short, nervous, anxious steps.
Slow steps, long or short, suggest a
gentle or reflective state of mind.
When a revengeful purpose is bid
den under a feigned smile the step
will be slinking and noiseless. The
proud step iB slow and measured, the
toes are conspicuously turned out,
the legs straightened. Where the
direction of the step wavers and follows every changing impulse of the
mind, it inevitobly betrays uncertainty, hesitation and indecision.
Reciprocity in States
Reciprocity is playing tin important part in the United Stnte* election campaign also. There arc Re-
publicans and Democrats who nsse-
ver that if the agreement hnd gone
into effect the great republic would
have become an adjunct of Canada
The theories of trade restriutionists
are certainly wonderful cerebral
emanations —Victoria Times.
