Mother of Two Inoffensive
Gnbs Runs Away at
Scent of Danger
On Thursday afternoon, while J.
F. Royer and Mr. Miller's son were
hunting for stray horses in the hills
back of Hansen's ranch, Mr. Royer
suddenly saw, a short distance in
front of him, a large plantigrade
mammal of the Ursus species. To
be more specific, it was an Ursus
arctos, or, to put it in plain English,
a common brown bear. Mr. Royer
was unarmed, but he longed for a
matinee of jungle sport, and despatched his companion for a gun, at
the same time urging the dogs to interview the bear. The meeting ofthe
bear and the dogs proved disastrous
to the latter, and they acknowledged
defeat in the first round. But when
the bear loQked up and saw Mr.
Royer, mounted on a white horse,
and his countenance tanned by the
sun to a perfect Rooseveltian color,
she concluded to take no chances,
and started for the tall timbers at
her best gait. When Mr. Royer arrived at the spot where the battle
between the bear and the dogs had
taken place, he found two young
cubs- They are now at the Model
stable in this city. They cubs are
not kept merely for exhibition purposes, but as an evidence that this
an unusual bear story. When the
boy returned with the gun the
mother of the cubs couldn't have
been overtaken by Count Zeppelin's
Permits for Fires
If you desire to clear land in any
place in British Columbia, and use
fire in doing so, you must obtain a
permit from the government agent
in your distsict.
From now until the first of October no fires may be kindled for land
clearing purposes unless the persons
interested take out such a permit.
The department is at present sending out to the government agents
throughout the province blank books
of permits to bo filled out as required. This regulation was enacted
at the lust session of the legislature,
when a hill amending the Bush Fire
Act was passed. This provides a
penalty for the non-compliance with
the regulation and ordains that after
the permit is obtained tho fires must
lie watched, managed and cared for
so that no damage may ensue ami
so that the fire may n.it get beyond
Both legs of each golden eagle killed
must be produced intact to the provincial game warden, A. Bryan
Williams, Vancouver, by the person claiming the bounty. Every
person applying for bounties must
furnish the provincial game warden
with an affidavit to the effect that
the bird upon which bounty is
claimed was killed within either of
the counties stated.

Rod and Gun for June
The winter campaign against the
wolves in northern Ontario, suggestions for thinning out these pests in
the Algonquin National park and the
need for some further action in that
portion of the province bordering on
Manitoba, are prominent features of
the June number of Rod and Gun in
Canada, published by W. J. Taylor,
WoodBtock, Out. Sportsmen everywhere are deeply interested in tbis
wolf campaign because it is felt tbat
the future of our big game depends
to a considerable extent upon keeping down the numbers of their relentless and ever vigorous foes. What
applies to a much wider field than
Ontario and the lessons learned will
no doubt be put to use in several of
the otber provinces. Even where the
wolf is not a pest and a trouble
sportmen will read with sympathetic interest of the good work done
and of the proposals for renewing it
with increased zest next winter.
Fishing, including a fine illustrated
paper Bhowinghow anglers may,with
much pleasure and profit to themselves, mount the best of their specimens, occupies the next place, seven
st iries being given up io topics of
which the fisherman is never weary.
As a change, one paper descriptive
of fishing in the West Indies, will
show Canadians tbat they have no
need to envy their fellows elsewhere.
A fine dog article by Mr. R. Clap
ham, "Dogs as Companions at Home
and Afield," a paper on "Grouse in
Alberta," a description of a new
British Columbia canoe trip, a couple of big game hunting stories, fish
and game protective topics, a summary of the report on the Canadian
National Park, and a paper on Physical Culture, are representative of
the wealth of other good things appearing in the number. Indeed,
sportsmen, whatever may be the special line they favor, will lind something in this issue appealing to them
with particular force, while the
whole of the contents will be found
of general interest to all concerned in
the sporting advantages of the Dominion.
Government Bounties
Notice is given in last week's B.
C. Gazette that, from May 1, 1909,

person claiming the bounty, and
that the skin of such animal was

one-fourth of an inch   in   diameter.

The power of the tongue. James 3:
Golden Text—Whoso keepeth his
mouth and his tongue keepeth his
soul from troubles.    Prov. 21:28.
This chapter continues the thought
of last week's lesson, based on the
previous chapter.
Verse 1—What class of persons are
most likely to want to mle, or be
"masters," those engngod in good
works of those who neglect them?
Will one who is in rape love with
his fellows want to rule them, or will
he judge them harshly?
Unfaithful Christians always put up
a high standard for others; what effect will that have upon the standard
with which God will measure tliem?
(See Matt. 7:1-5.)
Verse 2—How much of our trouble
and how much of the trouble we make
for others is caused by our tongues?
If a man dues not do any harm by
his words, is he very apt to do any
If a man says hard and unkind
things about his neighbors, and intentionally wounds the feelings of
others by his words, is lie necessarily
a bad man?
Is the control of the tongue the key
to the control of the entire man!
Verse 3—It takes an iron bit to control a horse, what is the "bit" which
will effectually control the tongue?
In what reaped is an ungoverned
tongue like a runaway home with a
broken bit, ami what are generally Ilie
results in eaeh nisi:' {'litis question
must lie answered in writing by members of the club.)
Verses 4-5—Is it actually so, that
the tongue is to the man what the
j rudder is to the ship, that is, does
1 the tongue govern the influence of the
I man?
Is it necessary at all times to watch
J our tongues, compelling them to refrain from wrong words, and to use
right words; just as the innn at the
wheel of a ship controls the rudder
with vigilant watchfulness?
Is tile tongue capable of setting
,i church or a neighborhood all ablaze
i with scandal, just as a mutch may set
the to a city!
Verse 6—Which are sonic of the
many "iniquities" which tho tongue
can cause?
Can you mention nnd recall some
of the moral poison omitted by an evil
Do persons «ith an evil tongue always draw tlieir inspiration from
Verses 7-8—Man can do very wonderful things, in training animals and
controlling the forces of nature, but
cannot "tiiine" tiie human tongue, nor
destroy its poison; to whom may we
apply to have this effectually done?
Verses 9-12—If a man uses his
tongue both for bad and for good,
for "blessing and cursing," does this
not stump him as a rank hypocrite?
Is it possible for a person with an
evil tongue, to be at the same time
well pleasing to God?

[fhom tub uook of oood counsels.]
One foot goes, and one foot stands.
When the wise man leaves nis lands.
Little recks the awless lion where  his
hunting jungles lie*.—
When he enters it be sure that a royal
prey shall die.
Very feeble folk are poor folk; money
lost takes wit away:—
All   their   doings   fail   like runnels,
wasting through the summer day.
Wealth isfricnds,home,father, brother
—title to respect and fame;
Yea, and wealth is held for wisdom—
that it should be so is shame.
Home is empty to the childless; hearts
to them who friends deplore:—
Earth unto the idle-minded; and tiie
three world to the poor.
Say the sages, nine things name not:
Age, domestic joys and woes,
Counsel, sickness, shame, alms, penance; neither Poverty disclose.
Better for the proud of spirit, death,
than life with losses told,
Fire consents to be extinguished, but
submits not to be cold.
As Age doth banish beauty,
As moonlight dies in gloom,
As Slavery's menial duty
Is Honor's certain tomb;
As Hari's name and Hara's
Spoken, charm sin away,
So Poverty can surely
A hundred virtues slay.
Half known knowledge, present pleasure purchased with a future woe,
And to taste the salt of service—
greater griefs no man can  know.
All existence is not equal, and all liv
ing is not life;
Sick men live; and   he .who, banished,
pines   for   children,   home, und
And the craven-hearted eater  of   another's leavings lives,
And the wretched captive waiting for
the word of doom survives;
But they bear an anguished body, and
they draw a deadly breath,
A nd life cometh to them only   on the
happy day of death.
Golden   gift,   serene     Contentment!
hath thou that and all is had:
Thrust thy slipper on, and think thee
that the earth is leather-clad.
All is known, digested, tested; nothing new is left to learn
When the soul, serene, reliant, Hope's
delusive dreoms can spurn.
Hast thou never watched, a-waiting
till tlio great man's door unbarred!
Didst thou never linger parting, saying many a last sad word)
cSpak'st thou never word of folly, emu
light thing thou wouldst recall!
Hare and noble hath thy life been!
fair thy fortune did befall!
True Religion I—'tis not blindly prating what the priest may prate,
But to love, us God hath loved them,
all things, be they small nr great;
And true bliss is when a sane mind
doth a healthy body (ill;
And true knowledge is knowing what
is good and what is ill.
Poisonous though the tree of life be,
two fair blofsoms grow thereon:
One, the company of good men; and
s'veet songs of Poet's, one.
Give, and it  shall  swell thy getting;
give, and thou shalt safer keep:
Pierce   the   tank-wall; or it yieldeth,
when the water waxes deep.
When the miser hides his treasure  in
the earth, he doth well;
For he opens up  a   passage that  his
soul may sink to hell.

Avenue, No Man is Stronger
Than His Stomach
A strong man is strong all over. No man can be
strong who is suffering from weak stomach with its
consequent indigestion, or irom some other disease
of the stomach and its associated organs, which impairs digestion and nutrition. For when the stomach
is weak or diseased there ia a loss of the nutrition
contained in food, which is the source of all physical
strength. When a man " doesn't feel just right,"
when he doesn't sleep well, has an uncomfortable
feeling in the stomach after eating, is languid, nervous, irritable and despond-
cot, he is losing the nutrition needed to make strength.
Such a man should use  Dr.  Pierce**   Golden Medical
Discovery.   It cares diseases ot the stomach and other
organs ot digestion and nutrition,  it enriches the blood,
Invigorates the liver, strengthens the kidneys, nourishes
You can't afford to accept a secret nostrum as a substitute for this nonalcoholic medicine of known composition, not even though the urgent denier
may thereby make a little bigger profit.   Ingredients printed on wrapper.

Lesson for .Sunday, June  13, 1909:
Heroes of Faith. Heb. xi:l-40.
Golden Text—Faith is the substance
of things hoped for, the evidence of
things not seen.    Heb. xi:l.
Verses 1-3—In what respects are
faith and hope similar?
If a desirable thing is possessed by
faith, does it give as much, or similar,
satisfaction, us the possession of the
thing itself!
What is tbe ground of our faith,
that "the worlds were framed by the
word of faithi"
Why do we admire the men of faith
of past years?
Verses 4-5—Abel had a truly religious nature; now was this nature the
result of his faith, or was his faith the
result of his nature?
Does this record mean that Enoch's
translation was directly caused by a
specific act of faith, or that his general life of faith made him such a good
man that Ood translated him without
Verse 0—Faith is sometime* based
-upon outward evidence; sometimes upon
personal revelation; sometimes upon intuition, and sometimes upon composite
grouniis; what moral or spiritual qual
ities, therefore, are necessary for becoming a -man of faith f (This question
must answered in writing by members
of tin- club.)
Why is faith necessary in order to
please God?
Verse 7—What was Noah's faith
based upon, and wherein was his faith
Verses 8-12—What was the differ-
ence,if any, between Abraham's faith
and that of the Pilgrim fathers, when
they loft the old country for the Aiuer
iciin land of promise?
I take it that Abraham,and the Pilgrim fathers, while in communion with
God, felt a drawing to go to the rich
country in the distance about which
they had heard; that they took tbis
drawing to be the voice of God; and
in this faith they startod out; what
evidence is there that their faith was
true, and that such faith is always dependable?
Verses 13 16—Why is it that all nations and peoples, in all time, so far as
we have any record, believe in, and
"desire a better country, that is an
i heavenly?,'
Verses 17-19—Give from memory
the account of Abraham offering up
his son Isaac.
What is the particular virtue, in
Abraham obeying God in the matter
of offering up Isaac?
Would it be a virtue or a vice in
these days, if any man should 'Jo the
same thing as Abraham did?
Verses 20 31—Suppose the persons
mentioned in these wonderful verses,
Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses and Ra-
hab, had been lucking faith in God,
in these critical moments of tbeir lives,
what would have been the difference
in the results?
Does faith in God always make the
present happy, and picture in glowing
