Spokane Capitalists Take a
Three-Year Lease on
Mollie Gibson
An incipient blaze was discovered
on the roof of Peter Pare's barber
shop this morning. Mr. Pure immediately removed his Airedale
Terrier to a place of safety, and then
extinguished tbe fire with a tea
spoonful of hot water. He has since
taken out a life insurance policy on
the dog.
Miss Johnstone, matron, and Miss
McLean, nurse, of the stuff of the
Phoenix general hospital, have resigned. Miss Johnstone goes to
Honolulu, while Miss McLean will
go to Calgary.
Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Stephens, of
Calgary, are visiting at the home of
Mrs. Stephens' parents in this city.
Mr. Stephens was formerly engaged
in business in this city. He is one
of the star hockey players of Canada. He came here expecting to be
able to engage in the exlnlerating
sport with his old friends, and feels
quite chagrined because baseball is
better suited to the present climate
in the Boundary.
W. B. Fleming has been appointed manager of the Greenwood hockey
team.    Jiilly Hood is captain.
The Mollie Gibson group, consisting of the Blue Grouse, Mollie
Gibson, Manchuria, Grey Eagle and
Irish Nellie mineral claims, situated
between Paulson and Coryell, in the
Burnt Basin district, has been taken
over by a syndicate of Spokane capitalists, on a three-year lease and
bond, given by the owners, John B.
Singer and John McNelly, of Ross
land. The deal was put through by
0. I'I. Harvey, of Nelson. The figure at which the bond was taken is
in &ie neighborhood of $60,000,
The syndicate taking over the property will, it is understood, subject it
to thorough development. The
property is not far from the head of
Christina lake, and the Paulson-
Coryell wagon road passes through it.
Accounts Passed for Work
on Midway & Vernon
A Victoria dispatch says that the
report of the valuation board assessing the price of the tnken-over ten
miles of the Midway & Vernon grade
and passing the accounts for labor,
team hire, and supplies in connection with that abandoned enterprise
has been presented to the.,government. The disbursements provided
for in settlement of the accounts are
now being made, $G3,000 being distributed, which will come as a welcome Christmas box to those interested, many of whom never expected
to be paid. The valuators have
passed all legitimate claims for payment in full, after authentication
and audit. Provision is only
made in the empowering legislation
under which the board was created
for payment of accounts arising in
the construction of the ten-mile section from Midway to Erick creek.
Other claims aggregating §10,000 or
$15,000 are held in respect to that
portion of the never completed line
out of Rock creek, which has not
been taken over by the Kettle Valley line and whicb that company
could not consequently in fairness be
asked to satisfy.
Granby official recentlys visited
Rossland in connection with the
Cliff mine, lately acquired by the
Granby company, and it is said that
they were perfectly satisfied with the
work being done at the property,
'fhey also went through the Le Roi
mine. There is.nn impression in
Rosslnnd that if the Granby people
oan he shown that they can get 400
tons per day of the right kind of
lluxing ore from the Le Roi, that
property will soon be working again.
The British Columbia Copper
company recently paid the C.P.R.

II. N. Morrison, wife and daughter, of Toronto, arrived in the city
yesterday, and will in future make
their home in the valley. Mr. Morrison is a brother of our local jeweler. Ho was attracted to this city
last summer by reports of the superior quality of the fruit grown
here. After investigating our re-
surces, he purchased a tract of land
near thc greenhouses.    This he  has

The campaign fur the substitution

who moved to his property with his
wife a couple of weeks ago, died at
his home near this city on Thursday of blood poisoning after a brief
illness. Deceased was about 35

Earl's Faith In Doctors.
Before leaving India in November
the barl and Countess oi Minto intend going on a shooting expedition
in the vicinity of Agio. I/ml Minto
is probably tne linest all-round sports-
liian in, tne peerage. As a young man
at Cambridge lie was so devoted to
tport tnat he took his degree in a rid
ing costume covered by an academic
gown. Immediately after the ceremony he leaped into a saddle and galloped off to tne racecourse, where he
arrived just in time to win tlie Uni
versity bteeplechase. Ever since then
his success as a sportsman lias been
remarkable. Indeed, tliere are few
cutdoor diversions in which he does
not excel, for he is a fine siot, a fearless rider, a good oursmuu, and a
keen angler. As a soldier Lord Minto
has been through many rousing
scenes. He fougiit witu tlie lurkisli
army in lHil, he was with Lord Huberts in Afghanistan two years later,
and served as Chief of Staff to Gen. ,
Middleton against Kiel in the Canadian Rebelion of 1835. Added to this,
he helped to extinguish burning Paris
after the Commune, and wus implicated with the Oarlists on the Spanish frontier. Probably the most extraordinary event in Lord Minto's varied
'and interesting Ufa, however, was tlie
'breaking of his neck, aud recovering
.after huviug been completely given
iu). by the doctors,    Ludy Minto was ,
100 miles in Canadian canoes, ana
camped out at night. On another 03.
ciision she caused a sensation by riling on the cowcatcher of a-locomotive
in far-away Klondike.
A Qreat Many Liberals Have Changed
Their Point of View.
In connection with any proposals by
the Liberal party for reforming the
House of Lords it has always been
urged against them that the peers ol
their creating have no sooner taken
their seats in the Upper House than
their principles undergo an acute reversal, and they themselves become
steady supporters of the status quo,
their successors in the peerage becoming liankly Conservative, writes J. K.
Lamont in The Graphic. That this
tendency is continually at work in
the case of most of the Liberal peerages admits of practically no argument. Of the members of the House
of Lords only seventy-five voted for
the budget in November last, as
against 350 for its rejection, so wa
may take the former figure as the voting strength of the Liberal party in
the Seyond Chamber, though one of
their political organs claims 93. This
danger cannot have been far absent
from the minds of those responsible
for the ultimate selection of the "five
hundred" new peers suggested to be
created. The double difficulty of se.
lectins suitaole nominees from among
the many applicants tor the doubtful
honor, and of trusting to their "sane-
mindedness" when they got to the
Upper House, must have gone fnr towards the present conference. It is
extremely doubtful indeed if such a
wholesale creation of peers was eyer
within the actual range' of practical
Cynically minded people might find
a reason for the reforming conviction
of a Liberal peer giving way to Conservatism in the.answer of Browning's
humbly born Pope, when asked as
,to why he had taken down his fisherman-father's net, "Son. it has caught
the fish." We can scarcely, however,
nccept thnt theory as sufficient. k[-
though the Liberal party hns for
many yenrs been identiHed with the
reform of the Upper House, it '■>
only the extremists of the party who
hnve committed themselves te a policy
of wholesale extermination, with winch
the moderate minds of both the great
parties of the state hnve. no sympnthy.
After all, the division line between
Conservative and Liberal is very narrow.
Apart from this conservative outlook there is for the majority of pea's,
by whichever pnrty created, a m.J'o
personal and. perhnps
ful nttitude townrds
lards,—the ambition to found a Inm
ily. As Mr. Jenks tells us. "the de
sire to hand n great position over to
one's children is one of the deepest
instincts of average humanity"; nnd
that desire, Coupled with a preferenoe
for a male heir, is responsible for
many a world trneedy, from the patriarchal days of Abrnhnm and Ha-
gar to the imperial days of Caesar
Augustus and Seribonia and the
heartless conduct of Napoleon to the
despised Josephine. It is also a cur
ious fact that the old patriarchal idea
of the family has lingered longer in
the upper strata of society than in
the lower or democratic. The latter,
always impatient of controi. even a*
children, owe no obedience to their
parents but that exacted by brute
force. In lhe former, and perhaps
especially when the head of the family has some distinctive honor, suc-i
as a peerage, all the younger branches
look up to the possessor of the family
honor as the head, the .paterfamilias,
with an admitted right of moral supervision over the conduct of each;
while he in turn is bound to give to
nil his protection and nid. A striking
instance of this occurred a very few
years ago. when the Duke of Mnrl-
horough. as head of the,Churchill family, repudiated aspersions cast by a
daily newspaper on Imrd Randolph
Churchill in tiie course of a review of
thp present Home Secretary's report
of his lather's life. The ambition of
Nelson was "a pe.rngo cr Westminster
Abbey," and so long as human nature
is constituted as it is. there will never

No Question or Doubt as to the Healing Power of
Dr. Chase's Ointment
To ppople who have used internal
treatment in an effort to cure eczema
it is almost beyond belief what benefit can be obtained by a few applications of this soothing, healing ointment.
It is seldom that the cause of eczema can be determined, but one
thing is certain, the itching must be
stopped and the sores healed up.
Theso results are secured by the use
of Dr. A. W. Chase's Ointment. The
itching is relieved almost instantly,
and you will be surprised at the healing which will tnke place overnight.
A little patience nnd persistent
treatment witli Dr. Chase's Ointment
will give you more practical and definite results than a whole lot of dosing with internukmedicines. You can
see how the Ointment heals. The
other is guesswork.
Mr. Geo. Peterson, South Bay, Ont.,
writes:—"I wish to communicate to
you the great benefit I received from
using Dr. A. W. Chase's Ointment.
For years 1 suffered with a great skin
disease on my head, a sort of eczema.
I tried four doctors, giving each a
fair trial, but got no better. In fact
the disease spread to my left arm,
"I saw Dr. Chase's Ointment advertised and begun u'-ing it. Persistent
use of this treatment has entirely
cured me, and I give you a statement
of my case with pleasure, as I hope
thereby to isduce some other sufferer
to try the same Dr. Chase's Ointment." ;
Because this ointment, has mnde its
world-wide reputation by curing the
most severe and long-standing cases
of eczema and piles is no reason why
you should overlook its scores of uses
in the relief of itching and irritation
of the skin.

Volumes Bound In Gold and Sot With
Precious Stones.
There'was an ancient legend to the!
effect that the famous "Golden Fleece"1
was a book covered in sheepskin,!
teaching tbe transmutation of the baser metals into pure gold.
The Roman scrolls were adorned
with bosses of gold or gems, and their
leaves having been smoothed with
pumice were scented with cedar oil.
The Byzantine emperors were great
patrons of books and "the Byzantine
coatings" or book covers were famous
lor their magnificence; they were of
gold, sUyer, copper, gilt, set with jewels, anMhese massive tones were carried  in Imperial processions.
"The Silver Book" of Clphilas,
Bishop of Moesia, a translation of the
Gospels, was rebuked by St. Jerome.
"Your books are covered with precious
stones," said he, "while Christ died
naked, before the gate ot His temple";
which has been compared to the saying of Sadi, the Persian poet, concerning the Mohammedan scriptures: "Tha
Koran was given to reform the conduct of men, and men have only
thought of embellishing its pages."
The books produced in the early centuries of the middle ages were of remarkable beauty, inwardly and outwardly ;v' religious manuscripts were
enriched by illuminations within,
while their covers were of silver, gold
and enamel encrusted with gems.
They were bestowed as splendid gifts
by bishops and princes on monastic
houses and churches, where they were
laid on the altar or chained to a
Such chained books were named
"Catenati"; a rough outer covering

of leather, cr "seadal," a ooarse silk.
Such coverings were also called "chemises." as a "chemise of sandal
wood." These rare books were also
placed in caskets, in shrines or "cap-
soe"; in Ireland they were laid in
satchels, otherwise named "polaires,"
or "Tiagha .Ubur," and the Celtie
bookbinding possessed a peculiar
beauty of its own.
There were secular bookbinders in
the middle ages who gradually formed'
themselves into guilds of craftsmen,
but the monks alone united the arts
of composition, caligraphy, illumination, bookbinding, setting of jewels,
enamelling and work on leather, silver
and gold in one artist. The monasteries of Kenilworth and Sithen were
granted unlimited rights of hunting
thnt they might obtain "stag hide'
for binding their, books.
The European princes were great
book lovers, and songs of their collections are famous, though now dispersed far nnd wide, sometimes reappearing as treasures cast up on the shores
of time in some museum or library.
Charlemagne was a grent patron ul
bookbinding, surrounding himself
with Italian workmen; Theolind,
Queen of. the Lombards, presented a
magnificent Gospel, overlaid with gold,
silver and jewels, to the Cathedral
of Monza.
The Dukes of Burgundy were renowned for their libraries. The "Boc-
eacio" of Charles the Bold was bound
in red velvet set with five large rubies; another Burgundian book was
velvet-bound set with 58 pearls A
great size, with a small "silver instrument" for turning the pages. "Pippes"
were also attached to some of these
costly tones; they were little bars of
silver or gold, forming "supports for
markers," sometimes the "pippe" waa
set with rubies, while the numerous
markers were adorned with pearls?
The library of Philip the Good of
Burgundy in the 15th century sur-
passed all the European lxiok collections of the time; it contained nearly
10,000 volumes, nearly all richly illuminated on vellum, with bindings uf
damask satin and velvet encrusted by
jewels, with clasps of chased gold and
gems. Bruges, where the ducal court
was held, was filled with literary
craftsmen, and some of their splendid
nroductions nre still to be seen in the
Belgian Royal Library.     '1
Henry VI. of England possessed a
Ine library. Lady Jnne Grey, Mary
Queen of Scots and Catheri-e de Medi-
"is were all book lovers; the Scottish
Queen usually hnd her books bound
in black, but one notable vn'ume wns

platina and studied with jewels.
In 1853 the French KiigWenry III.,
passed a law prohibiting ihe wearing

sets and devotional books with diamonds; they might have four din

A Great Sufferer from Indigestion Tells How
She Was Cared
Stomach trouble is a general name
for all forms of indigestion, whether
great pain after eating, belching of
wind, heavy feeling^ in the stomaoh,
nausea, or the sharp pains that often
make you think you have heart trouble. There ure two things noticeuble
iu indigestion. One is that doctors
always find indigestion a prominent
symptom in a bloodless run-down.
state. The other, that sufferers usually find relief when a tonic is taken
thut restores the general health. With
out n doubt stomach trouble is simply
stomach weakness, and the cure is to
muke the stomach strong enough to
digest food without trouble. Any
otner treatment is pntchwork nnd cannot cure. As the processes of digestion,
are controlled by the blood and
nerves, the stomach thnt is too weak
to digest food needs a tonic to give it
strength. And in all the world there is
no better tonic thnn Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. They actually make new,
rich red blood, tone the nerves and so-
strengthen the stomach and all the
bodily functions. We submit the following as proof that Ur. Willinmsr
Pink Pills will cure even the most
obstinate cases of stomach trouble-
Mrs. John Graf, Fort Saskatchewan,
Alta., says: "For years I suffered
great torture from indigestion. I
took muny different medicines, but
instend of benefitting me I wns
growing worse ull the time, till my
stomach got so bad I could neither
eat nor drink without pnin. Even,
cold water would cause me suffering..
Nor did I get nny relief when the-
stomach was empty, ns I still suffered from a horrid burning pain. I
went to Edmonton and consulted
one of the best doctors there, but
he told me that he could do nothing
for me, that all 1 could do was to
diet. For some time 1 took only hot,
water und n small piece of brown
bread for my meals, but even that,
did not help me and I got so weak
and run down that I despaired of
ever being well again, I bought a
so-called electric belt and wore it for
six months, but it was simply money
wasted. Then one dny a fri"n I nsk-
ed me why I did not try Dr. Williams'
I'ink Pills. I did not know they wore-
intended to cure indigestion, but being assured that they were, decided to
try them. I soon found the Pills helping me, but, tny condition wns so hnd
when I begun using tbem flint I continued tnking the Pills for about five
months before I felt thnt I was completely cured. Then I could eat any
kind of food, nnd although more tharr

have not since hnd the least sign of
the trouble. I cun most heartily recommend Dr. WillianiB' Pink Pills to

Where   Men  are   "Pretty.
A British investigator is ungallant
enough to state thnt the reason why
women are as a rule of a beauty not
attained by man lies in the fact that
they are more indolent and not so
prone to "exercise their brains" aa
men are. Intellectual labors and assiduous attention to business are, according to this authority, matters extremely prejudicial to the development of physical beauty.
In support of his theory this Britoiv
points to the Zaros, a tribe of British
India. Among them, it appears,
women hold the place that in other
countries is pre-empted by men. The
Zaro woman manages the affairs of
state, engages in business on her own
account and does not restrict herself
in the narrow field of woman elsewhere. On the other hand, the Zaro
map has nothing to do but cook the
meals and look after the children.
The natural result of all this, says
our scientist, is that the men of this
singular tribe are "very pretty" and
the women unusually plain.

Blood-Poisoning From Cut
Serious Condition  Relieved by
Mr. Jas. Davey, of 786 Ellice Ave.,
Winnipeg, says: "A few months since
I was cured of a poisoned finger
through the timely use of Zam-Buk.
I cut a deep gash across the knuckle
on the first finger of the right hand,
in opening a lobster can one evening.
I suffered at the time with the soreness and pain, but had no idea it
would become a serious wound. However, in about two days I was greatly
alarmed, as my whole hand and arm
to the elbow became inflamed, and
the finger was much discolored, showing signs of blood-poisoning! Tlie pain
was'dreadful and 1 wps forced to leave
off my work and go home.
"The wound on the knuckle had
been poisoned through the dust and
dirt about the furnaces and boilers.
I then decided to start the Zam-Buk
treatment, and having first bathed the
cut, I applied the healing balm. It
soothed the pain almost instantly, and
by the next day there was a great improvement. In a week's time, through
perserverance with Zam-Buk, a complete cure was brought about."
Scores of similar cases could be
quoted, and the wisest precaution is
to keep a box of Zam-Buk handy and
apply it immediately a cut, or burn,
or bruise is sustained.
Zam-Buk will also be found a sure
cure for cold sores, chapped hands,
frost bite, ulcers, eczema, blood-poison, varicose sores, piles, scalp sores,
ringworm, inflammed patches, babies'
eruptions and chapped places, cuts,
burns, bruises and skin injuries generally. All druggists and stores sell
at 50c. a box, or post free from Zam-

Can't   Understand
One of the things a woman cannot
understand is why a man would
rather read accounts of the ball games
than love stories.
After waiting for several weeks without hearing about her story, the amateur author wrote the magazine editor, requisiting an early decision, say
ing that she had "other irons in the
fire." Promptly came the- editor's re
sponse: "Dear Madam: I have read
your story, and, after giving it careful consideration, I should advise you
to put it with the other irons."

few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local

"No." replied one of tbe party; "we

The woman looked disappointed.

All agreed that since they were to
help the woman she should do as much
as possible In the matter. None of
them seemed to relish climbing the
rough ground between them and tbe
upper end of tbe canyon. The man
nearest the woman's height divested
himself of Sis outer garments, and she
retired and put them on.
"You better tell us," said Quigley
"before y' go what colored clothes

Grave of Maurice.
The Rev. John Frederick Denison
Maurice, one of the most influential
thinkers und social reformers of the
middle ot the last century, and a
friend oi Tennyson and Kingsley.
passed away April 1, 1872, and was
buried at Highgate. Yet, according
to the Rev. J. Capel Hanbury, his
grave cannot now be discovered.
"Some time ago," says Mr. Hanbury, writing to The Guardian, "I
made a pilgrimage to Highgete cemetery to visit the grave of my reverend teacher, Professor F. D. Maurice.
After considerable discussion as to
the spelling of the name, the clerk
gave me a ticket showing the situation and number of the grave. It was
at the upper end of the cemetery,
where thc grass was high and the
paths overgrown.
"After a long and fruitless search,
thinking that my old eyes were at
fault, I engaged the services of two
of the workmen of the cemetery, and
together we traversed the whole area
indicated on my ticket. All in vain;
the grave could not be found. It was
poor consolation to be told by the
clerk that no one ever asked where
Mr. Maurice was buried, and it made
me sad to think that the last earthly
resting-plutfe of a man to whom the
Church of England is under such inestimable obligations should seem to
be neglected and forgotten."
Commenting on the pain that will
be caused to many by the fruitless
search for tbe grave of Maurice, The
Guardian recalls the inquiry directed to him by a lady, who asked,
"Shall we know eacn other in Heaven?" to which he replied with the
question: "Do we know each other
on earth?" There are probably some
of his friends who will attempt to
rectify the lock of identification in
8oldiers Were Stung.
At one of Britain's most important
foreign forts the soldiers were once
badly trapped, says a London paper
in an article on the present spy
scare in England. •
1 It was known that a Teutonic spy
was in the vicinity, Dent on making
plans, and so the sentry on a magazine, one moonlight night, kept eager
watch, and soon was startled by a
loud rustling in the adjacent trees.
Going cautiously forward, he suddenly observed the figure of a man
perched high on the bough of a tree,
half hidden by the leaves.
The sentry's first impulse was to
use the business-end of his bayonet;
on second thought, he determined to
constrain his captive to his uncomfortable perch all night. The idea
was thoroughly to the taste of the
relieving sentries, each of whom,
during his two hours' duty, stood
right under the tree, gazing exultantly at the figure aloft, and indulging
in satirical remarks, anything but
complimentary or consoling.
At dawn, a triumphant guard proceeded to dislodge the captive. He
responded not to their taunts; he did
not budge an inch. A private at
once climbed aloft, and, in doing so,
shook down a lifelike effigy!
By this clever ruse, the spy had
effectually diverted attention whilst
acquiring the information he required, und departed.

King Edward's Horse Mads Up From
All Over Greater Britain.
It is not perhaps sufficiently known
that there is in England a regiment
which is a living symbol of the spirit
of imperial unity — King Edward's
Horse. Only a few days ago the regiment entertained at ^Tinner the
Queen's Own Canadian Rifles.
Started shortly after the South
African war to commemorate the services of the Dominions in the war,
the regiment was first known as the
King's Colonists. It was considered
that the finest memorial the overseas
Dominions could raise to the lnte
King was one to which they contributed their personal service. For that
reason the present King quite recently unproved the name of King Edward's Horse, the King's Over-Sea
Dominions Regiment (Imperial Service). King George, who when Prince
of Wales was hon. colonel of the regi
ment, is now its colonel-in-chief. Th*
commanding officer is the able and
octive Lieutenant-Colonel H. Fortes-
cue, for many years commander of
the 17th Lancers.
King Edward's Horso is the one
really imperial regiment in existence.
It is recruited from over-seas sources,
and for this reason has detachments
in those centres where young men,
from the Dominions are mostly found
—London and Liverpool—while there
are detachments at Oxford and Cambridge which inclnde a number of
Rhodes scholars. The roll includes
officers, non-commissioned officers
and troopers not only from India,
Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and
South Africa, but also from Jamaica,
Barbados, Trinidad, Rermuda, Bahamas, Mauritius, Burma, Ceylon, Hon;:
Kong, Uganda, Tasmania, the Straits
Settlements, and British Guiana.
The regiment is recruited entirely
from man with the following qualifV-
cations who are resident in Grea!
Britain for a period of not less than
four years:—The parents must be
resident or have been born in overseas Dominions or Crown Colonies;
the recruit must have heen born in
the over-seas Dominions or Crown
Colonies, or have resided there at
least five years. The enlistment is
for four years, hut this can be curtailed at the discretion of the commanding officer in the event of the
man returning home for good.
All the members are under a
liability to serve, if ordered with the
regimeht as a whole, anywhere in tin-
world in case of a national emergency.
Uniforms, arms, horses, saddlery, and
traveling expenses are provided free
to non-commissioned officers and
The objects of this imperial regi
ment are numerous: To link together the local forces of the Empire
under the conception of a common
duty to serve that Empire; as a mean-
to the above end to bring together in
its ranks young colonials from all th-
state, temporarily resident in Gr»u
Britain, under the above-mentio.vA
liability, to serve wherever the de
fence of the Empire may require them
(the Territorial forces are lor the
defence of the British Isles); to give
such an efficient elementary military
education to young colonials temporarily resident in England as may fit
them at once on their return to their
homes to serve effectively in their
local lorces; to create in this regiment, representing all the local force"
of the Empire, a visible symbol of the
Empire's unity for purposes of mutual defence; to form a rendezvous for
all duly accredited members of colonial local forces visiting the Mother
The regiment has still further aims
"We are allied siuce the last Colonial
Conterence," says the commanding officer, "to a number of over-seas regiments—to the first nine and to the
18th Regiments qt Australian Light
Horse, also the Cape Light Horse,
and in Canada to the 8th Princess
Louise New Brunswick Hussars. We
hope eventually to organize a system
of transfer between these allied regiments whereby, for instance, if a man
left King Edward's Horse to return
to Austruiin lie would be enabled, ipso
facto, to join one of our allied regiments there. This us yet is a pious
and sentimental aspiration. But we
have hopes tliut the scheme muy soon
prove workable. Ample financial support of late has been forthcoming
from all quarters of the world, and
we are hopeful of largely increasing
the strength of the regiment in the
near future."
To make n corps like King Edward's
Horse thoroughly efficient a continual flow of recruits must be maintain
ed, siuce a very large proportion of
them come to England for three or
four years only and then return to
their respective homes in tho overseas Dominions, Every young colonial

Key to the Mediterranean Was Once
a Most Untidy City, But It Has
Been Renovated and la Now Re*
markable for Its Cleanliness—It
la an Old Fortress and Was Military Base for Saracens.
When King Manuel fled from Portugal he quite naturally Bought refuge ut Gibraltar for the simple reason that it was the safest as well as
the nearest place which offered him
protection. . Furthermore, since Great
Britain is supposed to have guaranteed the integrity of Manuel's rule it
was probably as wise a move as he
could have mude. Gibraltar is a
strongly fortified point commanding
the entrance to the Mediterranean
Sea and it is regarded as thc greatest
naval stronghold of Great Britain.
Besides a small town at its foot, it
consists of a mountainous rock towering, at its highest point, about 1,493
feet above the sea level. The rock
is periorated by numerous caverns,
the largest of which, called the Halls
of St. Michael, have an entrance
about 1,000 feet above the sea.
The climate of Gibraltar is, as a
rule, healthful, though the period
from July to November, when the
greatest heat prevails, is attended
with some risks to visitors from
northern and cooler climates.   Of late
years, the energetic measures adopted
by the engineer officers to improve
the drainage, coupled with stringent
police regulations, hove greatly diminished the death rate. Gibraltar
is as remarkable now for its cleanly
appearance as, before 1814, it wus for
being one of the dirtiest towns in
Europe. Since 1704 Gibraltar has
been a British possession. The first
record of its natural strength being
used for defensive or aggressive purposes was in 711 A.D. When the
Saracens passing into Spain under
Tarik Ibn-Zeyad. a general of the
Saracen forces, for the conquest of
the Visigothic kingdom, fortified it,
aa a base of operations, and a ready
point of access from the Rarbary
coast. From this chieftain it took
the name Gebel-Tarik, or Hill of
Tarik, of which Gibraltar is a corruption.
The population of the town, including a garrison of approximately 6,000
men, is about 30.000. It is ruled by
both civil and military authority and
the governor-general, who at present
is Sir Archibald Hunter, is also commander and chief of the garrison.
For reasons of military secrecy it is
forbidden to photograph the rock.
but photos are frequently made from
a strip of land known as "Neutral
Ground," separating Spain from
Gibraltar. ,
Some More Nature Fakes Exposed.
An English scientist who has been
observing the habits of the cobra iu
India, has declared that all stories as
to the reptile's love of music are fakes.
He admits that music will bring the
cobra's head out of his hiding placo,
but also he Bays that any kind of high-
keyed noise loud enough will act in
the same manner in bringing it from
its burrow. Bcoting with a switch on
the ground, rattling a chain, or any
high-pitched Bounds catch its ears
and curiosity causes the snake to do
the rest. It pays no attention to the
pounding of the bass drum or to the
lower notes ol the flute. As to the
reptile's power to fascinate birds with
its eyes, Dr. Barnard brands the statement aa imaginary.
Reynolds and Two Pictures.
Sir Joshua Reynolds having become
a great man, it was but natural thar.
the town council of Plympton, nea-
Plymouth, where he was born, should
elect him mayor, ln acknowledgment
of tlie honor he painted a lino portrait
of himself and presented it to the corporation. Ho wrote to a friend asking him to sec that the picture was
hung in a good light. This friend not
only did so, but hung a poor picture
alongside ol it in order to heighten
thc merits of Sir Joshua's work hy
contrast. Then ho informed Reynolds uf all the trouble he hail taken
In thanking hiin Sir Joshua told him
that thc poor picture had been painted by liituscll (Reynolds) in early life.
Only the Young On_i Did.
While the matinee hat problem Is
still unsolved in many parts of the
Empire, the social conundrum was
simply and expeditiously dealt with in
Australia two years ago. Complaints
had been showered upon the threatri-
cal managers to suctt an exte.it that
they arranged a conference. The following Saturday night, at all the theatres in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide,
and Perth there was thrown on a cinematograph screen the following notice: "Ladies under 50 years of age
are requested to remove their hats."
The theatrical managers up country
varied the request according to their
taste. At Ballarat the formula was:
"Ladies take your hats off, but keep
your hair on!" Thus wns the "ridiculous hat" killed in one night

Fruit Packing Sohobls
In accordance with the policy of
the department nf agriculture, whieh
is to educate fruit growers iu. the
production of the highest class of
fruit, the fruit branch of thu department lust winter introduced a
series of five packing schools for the
teaching of the pruper and most up-
to-date methods of packing and
wrapping fruit. This work proved
very popular, nnd undoubtedly met
the needs of the districts in which
the packing schools were placed.
Fruit growers oi the province will
therefore he pleased to learn that
this «ork will be continued and
further extended this year so as to
establish these schools in fruit dis-
liicts of tlie province where desired,
and where a sufficient number of
pupils can be secured.
For this purpose Mr. Berkeley, of
Vernon, and Mr. Gibb, of Kelowm,
have been secured. Mr. Berkeley
was this year in charge of a branch
of the Okanagan Fruit union, and.
packed the first prize mixed carload
at the Canadian National Apple
show ut Vancouver, whicli also won
second prize sweepstakes. He conducted lour packing schools for the
department last year, and gave extremely gooil Butiafaotiuiii Ue. Gibb,
of the Kelowna Farmers' exchange,
has had charge of their fruit packing
this year, and had the distinction of
packing the winning sweepstakes car
of Jonathans at the Canadian National Apple show. He also gave excellent satisfaction in packing
school work for the department last
year iu the Okanagan. Tbe standihg
and experience of these men is such
aB to guarantee the highest class of
instruction and the fullest satisfaction in the work they undertake,
and the fruit growers of the prov-
vince will feel that in securing these
men thc department of agriculture
has been fortunate. ,   ..
From many districts in the prov
ince the demand for packing schools
is quite urgent, and it is only by
Spreading out the money available
for the work that even a part of
them can be accommodated. The
amount of fruit to he packed increases very rapidly each yenr, and
localities now benefit by packing
schools, where a year or.'two ago thin
work wasijiiiic unnecessary.
To bring before thc public tin
method in which this work will In
administered, a circular has been
issued outlining the terms on which
packing schools will be arranged for
in any district. This circular will
be placed in the hands of a responsible hotly, to whom the local administration of tbe packing school,
in the way of securing the requisite
pupils, fruit, a packing room, etc.,
will be left. This body will also be
required to guarantee it minimum
attendance of pupils. This plan has
been pronounced very satisfactory
by organization!, in a number of
The department of agriculture
provides the instructor and pays
his expenses. The department will
bear the cost of packing paper, fruit,
and other, legitimate expenses, except tbat of packing tables, which
will be left at each point after the
school is finished.
The responsible hotly in each
casn, whither a municipal body,
farmers' institute or fruit growers'
association, will lie required to guarantee a minimum of twelve pupils,
but not more than fifteen, at a fee
of $3 each, to take twelve lessons of
two and a half hours a lessonj in
other words, one week. Iu a lim,:-
ed nuniher of districts a double
packing school can he arranged for,
in whicb Ihe minimum guarantee
will be Iwenty-iuiu pupils, hut not
more than thirty, for the same
period. Arrangements can be mnde
for an evening or late afternoon public demonstration on apple packing
for tbe benefit of the district at large.
About three boxes per pupil is
necessary. The hardier varieties,
such as Ben Davis and Gano, are
preferred. Fruit must be hi fairly
good condition, but need not be
graded. Associations should at once
secure the necessary fruit, or if none
is now left in the district, this should
be stated at the time application is
made, and the department will look
tfter it.
Two table 16x4 ft. and 3 ft. high
with burlap top and rests for boxes
ire required for fifteen pupils. These
tables cost about SS.50 each when'
made by a carpenter. They are unnecessary where fruit packing associations can provide their tables.
In places where these tables must be
provided, please advise the department, and full instructions for construction will be sent.
For fifteen pupils a hall at least
30x15 feet and well lighted is necessary. It must be heated so tbat
fruit will not freeze at night and to
prevent entiling of the fingers of the
The advantages of packing schools
1. Practical and thorough instruction in actual commercial packing
will be given. Packing schools have
proved very successful beeeauseeaeh
pupil is engaged in actual packing
under the personal supervision of an
instructor who knows and can
teach commercial packing.
2. Pupils will have an opportunity to learn the method and equipment used by up-to-date and progressive associations for the most
economical picking,   grading, pack
ing, wrapping and handling of fruit.
3, Instruction will be given in
the Operation of the Fruit .Marks
.',ct, in the proper marking of different sizes and grades of fruit.
4. Incidentally, instruction in exhibition packing will be given.
•5. Packers who are given a score
of 75 efficiency in the packing school
and,who put up'a creditable pack
the following year will be entitled to
a diploma, i'i-rlilying the same, from
lbe department of agriculture.
(i. Fruit gioivers in the district
may visit tlie packing school
ami secure information in this way.
Ths evening demonstration and lecture on commercial fruit packing
will also be valuable, it is hoped
thnt lhe provincial horticulturist
may be present at some nt least of
these meetings,
In view of the large demand for
packing schools anil the fact that
