Liberals Open the Campaign
With an Enthusiastic
v       Meeting
There was a large and enthusiastic
attendance at the firat Liberal meeting of the present campaign, The
opera house was well filled in spite of
t lie sultry weather, and the telling
points made hy the speakers were fre
quently punctuated with applause.
Tho speakers were Dr. K. C MacDonald, Liberal candidate for Yale-
Cariboo, Hubert Lawson, and M. A.
MacDonald, of Cranbrook. T. A.
Mclntyre acted as chairman of the
meeting.
l)r MacDonald experienued a dou
ble pleasure ill returning to Urand
Korks, one being as the standard bear-
el* uf the great consuming masses, aud
the other tu renew old friendships and
tu note the splendid advancement the
community had made since he left
here.
The issue in the present campaign,
he said, was clear cut—Shall we hi.ve
a greater Canada, with larger markets,
ur be content with present conditions
by letting "well enough alone "
He referred briefly to the redistribution question, laying that the
Laurier government had nothing to
fear from that source, as the west was
overwhelmingly in favor of larger
markets.
Speaking on the tariff question,
Mr. MacDonald said it wss out right
that the consumer should pay a heavy
tribute on everything he used on his
table three times a day. Canada was
prosperous between 1S54 and 1856,
when we had a reciprocity treoty with
the United States,, and she would
prosper under the proposed agreement.
After many failures to negotiates
reciprocal trade treaty with the United States, the Laurier government
had taken the only course consistent
with dignity in waiting for the United
States to make overtures for the present treaty. The Conservatives had
raised a cry because Jthe government
had attempted to pass the agreement
without receiving a mandate from
the people. When did Mr. Burrell receive a mandate from his constituents
to oppose itl Aa an evidence that the
treaty it in the interest of the consumer, he cited the fact that the manufacturers' association is fighting it
t.ioth and nail. If the treat is rati-
li'-al, he said, the people will Hnd it so
lat'iieli.-ial that no government, Liberal
iar Conservative, would dare to repeal it.
The speaker predicted that the
eastern and Maritime provinces would
endorse the pact. Hut no province
would he more benefited from the
aiperatiuns aif the agreement than
Hritish Columbia, as at present we
imported 11:1,000,000 worth of foodstuffs annually. The average tarill
aau this enormous importation was 25
per cent. The tishing industry, he
said, would receive a wonderful impetus if the treaty is ratified.
I /British Columbia, he said, is primarily a mining country, because that industry still leads in the
province. The miners will gain by
the pact, because they will have less
tribute to pay on their supplies and
foodstuffs. Hecipraicity was the
broadest question that had  been  sub-
mitied to the people during   the   past
fifty years.
Mr. MacDonald emphatically de-1
nied the statement made in au edi-
torial recently printed in the Vernon
News, and repiinted in a number of
papers in this section of the district,
to the effect that at the time reciprocity negotiations were carried on in
Washington he had, as a member of
the Vernon board of trade, expressed
himself as being opposed to placing
fruit on the free list. The facts, he
said, had been greatly distorted. If
there were any persons who were not
satisfiea with this explanation, they
were adviced to communicate with the
other gentlemen mentioned in the'
editorial and obtain a substantiation
»f the facts as he had stated them.
Referring to the fruit industry, hu
said that every man in the Okanagan
district who had made a success of
fruit growing welcomed reciprocity.
He named a long list of growers who
favored the pact. The fact, moreover,
should not be overlooked that 99 per
cent of the people of the province
were consumers of fruit, and only 1
per cent producers. "British Columbia," he continued, "is principally an
apple growing country, and a quality
of apple is grown here that can compete successfully in any market in the
world. Kelowna took the first prize
at the National Apple show in Spokane, and then they sold the product
in that city for double the price they
could have obtained in Canada." All
the protection the fruit growers needed was a strict enforcement of the
fruit Marks Act, and if elected he
would do everything in his power to
have this law carried out.
The last analysis of the argument
against reciprocity was annexation,
lt was an insult to every British subject in Canada to intimate that tbe
ratification of the pact would result in
annexation.
Dr. MaoDonald concluded an hour's
speech by advising everybody to cast
their ballots ou the 2 1 st according to
the dictates of their own conscience.
Robert Lawaon, the well known
local fruit gjower, followed the doctor, making his initial appearance on
a political platform. Mr. Lawaon
confined his remarks to a review uf
lhe letters which have recently ap
peared in The Sun over his signature.
in conclusion he said the reciprocity
treaty was the most important measure ever submitted to the peuple of
Canada, and that the wurkiugmeu
stood more in need of protection from
tl.e trusts and monopolists than the
fruit growei did from American competition.
M. A. MacDonald, of Cranbrook,
was the last speaker, and he mad., one
, of the bosi apecches uver heard ill the
I city. He is a fluent and eloquent
speaker, and that he carried the audi-
I ence with hun was uvidenced by the
j fact that his remarks werefrequiieutly
i greeted with applause.
Mr.   MacDonald   stated   that  all
i parties during tlie past fifty years had
j endeavored tu negotiate a   reciprocity
j treaty with the   United States.    Mr.
llui-ell had uot objected to the treaty
! when negotiaeions   were   pending    in
j Washington,    from what  source did
the Conservatives' mandate tu uppose

111 Toronto eighteen   millionaire   Lib
crals   were   lighting   the   treaty; hut

their own interests by endorsing   reciprocity.    High   tariff  materially   in-
I creased the cost .if liviug.   Wages did

WILL EL POINT
Local Fruit Grower Gives
Further Reasona for Supporting the Pact
To the Editor of The Sun.
In answer to the article headed
"The Future Canada is Asked to
Sell," in the Gazette of August,..2(>
and copied from the Montreal Herald, which tries to make the people
believe tbat reciprocity is a national
question: Reciprocity is not a na
tional question, und should nut have
been a party question. By voting
for reciprocity we are not selling
Canada to the United Stales, but by
voting against leciprocity you are
simply selling Canada's future lo
the privileged classes. They say new
conditions have come, and tbat ii
may be the old reciprocity agree
ment. But it is offered to a new
Canada.
The privileged classes have prospered so under a high tariff that lo
day tbey are using their unnaturally
begotten gain to oppose reciprocity,
which will benefit the masses and
he a boon to Canada; and it is practically the same old. resiprocity
agreement as was supported by Sir
John Macdonald.
I said in my last letter that if we
had disloyal Canadians they were
most likely to be found among those
opposing reciprocity. Listen to this:
The writer of the Herald article puts
the population of England at 40,-
000,000, and prophesies 100,000,000
for Canada, and then wants to know
if a parliament elected by 40,000,-
000 people will make peace or' war
without the unrepresented 100,-
000,000. This is intimating that
Canada will some duy he the head
of the British empire. Even if tbis
is to he so, it is to be hoped lhat we
will never be ii.iluenced by a man
with such a swelled head as this
wiiter. But is not England looked
upon us the mother country by all
ioyal Canadians, and also by the
United States; and if Canada is ever
blessed with a population of 100,-
000,000, aliould we not he more
willing to fly to her side in case of
trouble we would be with our present population? Imagine Canadians
talking disloyalty, annexation and
war over a tariff question when
three of the greatest powers in tne
world have signed a treaty of peace!
Politicians talking such nonsense as
this should go away hack anal sit
down -and give thoir supporters a
chair alongsiale of them 1 miss
my guess if England snd lhe United
States are not going tn have their
bands full keeping things running
smoothly at home in the near fu
ture without annexing any more
territory, and if Canada keeps on
the way she is going she will find
I herself in the same fix. There is no
use going into aletails regarding the
' balance of (lie Herald article, for it
j is one continuous slur ngn list Ihe
; United States, with a view of excil-
i ing the passions of loyal Canadians.
and endeavoring to make them believe that by voting for reciprocity
they will ba swallowed up body and
soul hy the big republic. There is
no other argument ogainat reciproe
ity, and the privileged classes are
certainly going the limit with it.
It is tiait the United States that is
after the fat natural resources of j
Canada, but it is the protected interest! of Canada thai are after the
proceeds ol our fat natural resources. Tbe tariff doea not benefit
Canada at a whole, or any other
country; but it does benefit all privileged interests to the detriment of
the masses—that is to say, if I am
in a business that is protected to the
extent of 25 per cent, it is my own
fellow-Canadians who have to pay
it. That is simply taking money
out of one Canadian pocket and
putting it in another. You would
naturally ask the question, "Where
are you going to get the money to
pay the customs ollicers' wages for
protecting the 3700 miles of boundary line?" All they are doing is to
see that the privileged interests get
as much money as possible out of
the pockets of the masses. These
officers are all Canadians. We have
not got across ihe line ye', i-'o fur
Canada has not been benefited one
particle as a whole, although she hss
111 army of ollicers. It is certainly
poor policy to compel Canadians to
pay duty on anything they are not
manufacturing themselves, or anything they cannot produce. But we
are doing it. Now, what have we
to pay these officers with, and get a
revenue out of. It is from what
Canadians are buying from the
I'niti'd Slates, that Canadians are already manufacturing and producing
themselves. Canada as a whole has
uot made a cent yet, and is out all
ibis expense. But some one must
be making money by it, or tbere
would not be such a strong element
opposing reciprocity. Who is itl
It is the favored institutions of Can
ada, and Canadians are paying for it
all. I know there are large revenues
derived from products and manufactured goods which Canada dues
not produce or manufacture, but
that is certainly wrong. Far better
have direct taxation. If we have
institutions in Canada that really
need protection, better protect tbem
directly. But if we have no industries in Canada that need protection
any more than the fruit growing industry, the sooner we have reciprocity—and also free trade—the
belter. Is it good business to have
two or three dollars of the people's
money going into the pockets of the
protected interests for every dollar
that goes into the public treasury I
The tariff causes the people's money
lo flow in unnatural channels Why
should we support such a thing,
when the Country as a whole is a
loser by it?
In Quebec we have Mr Monnk,
the leader of the Conservative party
in lhat province, nud Mr. Bourassa
endeavoring to make lbe people
believe that Laurier is too imperialistic. Mr. Borden views this speo-
taele wilh evident approval    Ai tin-
siiiiji lime he is trying to make us
western peopla believe that
I.nurier is disloyal. That is nice
Stand for a leader lo take, or any
slippoi'ler lo uphold.
The Gazette refers to my Inst let-
teras lia-ing "pointless and written
by a fruit grower who only pretends
to support reciprocity" This will
give the people an hlea aaf how the
opposing elements nf the reciprocity
pnel nre endeavoring t" mislead the
ela-clors. There is no person who

WON FIRST PRIZE
Grand Forks District Display
Awarded First Money
at Vancouver
The secretary of the Grand Forks
board of trade yesterday received a
telegram from H. W. Collins, who is
in charge of tbe Grand Forks district display of fruits and vegetables
at the Vancouver Exhibition, stating that the exhibit had been awarded the first prize of $200 in cash.
The winning of this prize by
Grand Forks is very gratifying to the
residents of the community, especially as no serious attempt was made
until a couple of weeks ago to make
an exhibit at Vancouver. Some
months ago the board of trade entered an exhibit in tho district displays. When the fair association
issued its prize list, however, it was
found that the district exhibits included seeds, dairy products und
other articles which could not be
supplied from this valley, and the
board cancelled its entry.
The management of the exhibition, however, finally prevailed on
the board to make a display of such
products as are grown in the valley.
The board then turned the matter
over to Mr Collins, with the understanding that any prize money the
'Iisplay might win should go to him.
New Buildings
9 Geo. Gowland, manager for P.
Burns & Co. in this city, received
a latter from Calgary thin week, staling the plans of tbe company's new
brick block, which is to be erected
on tbe corner of Bridge and First
streets, would arrive in here
next week. It is expected that the
building will he completed ibis fall.
J. C. Argall, of Spokane, who
owns the building occupied by the
Kettle Valley restaurant, which was
partially destroyed by the recent
fire, has been in the city this week,
and wbile here he completed arrangements for the erection of a
new brick block on the site of the
present structure. Construction
work will he commenced next week.
When completed it will lie «ocup.M

(Continued.)
By way of reply Fenwick dashed
his fist, full into the face of Zary.
The latter drew back just in time to
avoid a crushing blow; then his long
arms twisted about the bulky form
of his antagonist as a snake winds
ubout his prey. 80 close and tenacious, so wonderfully tense was the
grip, that Fenwick fairly gasped for
virile force like this in one eo slender.
A bony leg was pressed into the small
of his back—he tottered backwards
and lay upon the mossy turf with
Zary on top of him with one bony
hand at his throat. It was all so
sudden and so utterly unexpected
that Fenwick could only gasp in astonishment. Then he became conscious of the fact that Zary's great
luminous eyes were bent, full of hate,
upon his face. A long curved knife
gleamed in thc sunshine. Very slowly the words came from Zary.
"I could finish you now," he whispered. "I could end it one and for
all.   One swift blow of this knife—"
"What, are you doing?" a voice
asked eagerly. "Zary have you taken
leave of your senses? Release him at
once I say."
Very slowly Zary replaced the knife
in his pocket and rose to his feet.
There wns not the slightest trace of
his recent passion. He wns perfectly
calm and collected, his breathing was
as even and regular as it had been
before the onslaught.
"You are quite right, master," he
said. "I had almost forgotten myself. I am humiliated and ashamed.
The mere touch of that man is pollution. We shall meet again, Mr.
Evors."
Zary went calmly away and vanquished in the thick undergrowth as
quickly and mysteriously as if he
had been spirited from the spot.
Fenwick rose to his feet and wiped
the stains from his clothing.
"I certainly owe you one for that,"
he growled. "That fellow would certainly have murdered me if you had
not come up just at the right moment. It is fortunate too, that you
should have turned up here just now.
Come as fnr as the house. I should
like to say a few words to you in
private."
It- wns well, perhaps, that Evors
could not see the expression of his
companion's face, that he did not
note the look of mingled triumph and
malice that distorted it. It never for
a moment occurred to him as possible that black treachery could follow-
so closely upon the heels of his own
magnanimity. Without the slightest
demur he followed Fenwick to the
house. The latter led the way upstairs into a room overlooking thc
ancient part of the house, murmuring
something to the effect thnt here was
the thing that he wished to show
Evors. They were inside the room at
length, then with a muttered excuse
Fenwick hastened from the room.
The key clicked in the lock outside
and Evors knew that he was once
more a prisoner.
"You stay there till I want you,"
Fenwick cried. "I'll teach you to
play these tricks on me after all I
have done for you."
"You rascal," Evors responded.
"And so you think you have me a
prisoner once more. Walk to the
end of the corridor and back, then
come in here ngain aud I will have
a pleasant surprise for you. You
need not be afraid—I am not armed."
Perhnps some sudden upprehension
possessed Fenwick, for he turned
rapidly as he was walking away and
once more opened the door. Evors
had heen as good as his word—the
surprise which he hud promised Fenwick wns complete and absolute.
"Vanished! Fenwick cried. "Gone,
curse him, whnt can have become
of him?"
CHAPTER XXIII.
Smoked Out
A feeling of helpless exasperation
gripped Fenwick to the exclusion of
all other emotions. Everything seemed to he going wrong just now; whichever way he turned some obstacle
blocked his path, l.ike most cunning
criminals he coulal never quite dispossess himself of the idea that honesty anil cleverness never went together. All honest men were fools of
necessity, nnd therefore the legitimate
prey of rogues like himself. And yet,
though he was more or less confronted
now with men of integrity h» was
helpless in their hands as if he had
been a child., The maddening pnrt of
the whole thing was his inability to
find anything to strike. He wns like
a general lending nn army into the
■ lark in a strange country, and knowing all the time thnt he had cunning
unseen foes to fight.   •
Thoughts like these were uppermost in Fenwick's mind ns be gazed
ill consternation about the little room
from which Fenwick knew, Evors had
siiveal his life from Znry, hut that
hnd not prevented Fenwick frnm be.
having in a dastardly fashion, lt
seemed to him as if Fate wns piny-
ing into their hands by bringing Evors
down here at this moment. Hitherto
he had found Evors such plastic
material that he had never seriously
considered him in the light of a foe.
Now, for the first time, he. saw how
greatly he had been mistaken.
"Where can the fellow    have    got
to?" he muttered. "And whence comes
his intimate knowledge of the house?"
He tapped the walls, he examined
I the floor, but there was uo sign what-
j ever  of  the  means  by   which  Evors
had made good his escape.
Fenwick furiousy rang the bell and
demanded that the old caretaker
should be sent to him at once. The
man came to him, shambling unsteady along and breathing fast as
if he had been running. His aged
features were quivering with some
strange excitement, as Fenwick did
not fail to notice, despite his own
perturbation.
"Whot an earth's the matter with
you?" lie exclaimed. "You look us if
you had seen a ghost? What is it?
Speak up man!"
"It isn't that, sir," the old man
said in trembling tones. "It is a
sight that I never expected to see
again. -A bit wild he was—aye, a rare
hondful at times, though we were all
precious  fond of  him.    And  to see
him back here again like this "
"What the devil are you talking
about?" Fenwick burst out furiosuly.
"The old fool is in his second childhood."
"It was the young master," the
caretaker babbled on. "Why, you
could have knocked me down with a
feather when he came in the house
with you.   As soon as 1 set eyes on
Mr. Charles "
"Mr. what?" Fenwick asked. "Oh,
I see what you mean. You are speaking of Mr. Evors, who came in with
me."
"That's it, sir, that's it," the old
man said. "Mr. Evors, only we used
to call him Mr. Charles."
Fenwick began to understand.
"Let's have it out," he said. "Mr.
Evors, whom you saw with me just
now, is Lord Merton's ony son?"
"That he be, sir, that he be. And
to think that he should come home
like this. It'll be a good day for the
old house when he returns to settle
down altogether."
Fenwick dismissed the old man
with a contemptuous gesture. He
had found out all he wanted to know,
though his information had come to
him ns nn unpleasant surprise. It
was a strange coincidence that Fenwick should have settled upon Merton Grange for a dwelling-place, and
thus had picked out the actual home
of the young man who had suffered so
much at, his hands. But there was
something beyond this that troubled
Fenwick. It was a disturbing thought
to know that Chares Evors could find
his way ahout the house in this mysterious fashion. It wns u still more
disturbing thought to feel that Evors
might be in league with those who
were engaged in tracking down the
so-called millionaire. There were certain things going on here which it
wns imperative to keep a profound
Secret. Doubtless there were secret
passnges and panels in this ancient
house, and Fenwick turned cold nt the
thought that perhaps prying eyes had
already solved the problem of the little room at the end of the corridor.
He lost no time in calling his parasites about him. In a few words he
told them what had happened.
"Don't you see what it means?" he
said. "Charles Evors is here, he has
come back to his old home, and what
is more he has come hack to keep an
eye on us. I feel pretty certain that
someone is behind him. If the police
were to walk in now, guided by Evors
we should be caught like rats in a
trap. I didn't want to trust that stuff
to Blossett, hut he must get awny
with it now without delay. There is
a train ahout twelve o'clock to London, and he must get one of the servants to drive him over in a dogcort.
Now don't stand gnzing at me with
your mouths open like thnt, goodness
knows how close the dnnger is. Get
the stuff away at once."
The man Blossett came into the gar-
den, a hig cigar between his Hns.
He laughed in his insolent fashion
when he wns told of his errnnd. The
hot blood wns in Fenwick's fnee, hut
he hnd no time to quarrel with the
swaggering  Blossett.
"I thought you would come to your
senses," the letter said. "Nobody like
me to do 11 little thing of thnt sort.
Now let me hnve the ense and I'll be
off without delay. Better put it ill n
Glndstone bug. If I have any luck I
sliall he back here to-night, and then
we can share the bank-notes and
there will he an end of the materials
in the moat. Not that I am afraid
of anything happening, myself."
Half an hour Inter Blossett was being howled down the drive hehind a
fleet horse. A little later still, as the
train pulled out of the station, Egan
and Grady stood there watching it
with rueful faces. Venner was with
them, and smiled to himself, despite
the unfortunate nature of thc situation.
"I thought we hnd out it a bit too
fine," Grndy snid. "It is all the
fault of that confounded watch of
mine. Now what's Ihe best thing to
he done? Shnll we telephone to Scot-
lnnd Yard to nsk to have Blossett detained when he reaches Victorin?"
"I don't quite like the iden," Egan
said. "If we were English detectives
it wouldn't much matter, but I don't
wnnt Scotland Yard to hnve the laugh
on nie like this. It may eost 11 deal
of monev, end I shall probnhly have
to pay it out of my own pocket, but
I nm going to hnve n specinl trsin."
"My good mnn," Venner snid, "it is
absurd to think that vou cnn get a
special trnin nt n roadside «ti.Uon ''ke

ently in America, but if you suggest

Made in the Big Sanitary Factory in Winnipeg,
a special to the station-master heere,
he will take you for an amiable lunatic. I have an idea that may work
out all right, though it all depends
upon whether the train that has gone
out of the station is 11 fast or a slow
one."
The inquiry proved the fact that
the train wns a slow one, stopping at
every station. It would be quite two
hours in reaching Victoria. Venner
smiled with the air of a man who is
well pleased with himself. He turned
eagerly to his companions.
"1 think I've got it," he snid. "We
will wound Fenwick with one of his
own weapons, lt will be the easiest
thing in the world to get from here to
Victoria well under two hours in- a
motor."
"1 guess that's about true," Grady
said, drily. "But what applies to the
special equnlly applies to the motor.
Where are. we'to get the machine
from?"
"Borrow Fenwick's," Venner said.
"I understand the working of a Mercedes, nnd I know where the car is
kept. If I go about this thing boldly,
our success is assured. Then you can
wait for me at the cross roads and I
can pick you up."
"Well, you can try it on, sir," Egan
said doubtfully. "If you fail we
must telegraph to Scotland Yard."
But Venner had not tlie slightest
intention of failing. There were no
horses in the stable at Merton Grange
and consequently no helpers loafing
about the yard. There stood the big
car, and on a shelf hard by all the
necessaries for setting the great machine in motion. In an incredibly
short time Venner had backed the
Mercedes into the yard; he turned her
dexteriously, and a moment later was
speeding down a side nvenue which
lml to the Park. The good old saying
that fortune favors the hrave was not
belied in this instance, for Venner
succeeded in reaching the high road
without n mishap. It was very long
odds against his theft being discovered nt nny rate, for some considerable time; ond even if the car were
missing, no one could possibly identify its loss with the chase after
Blossett. It was consequently in
high spirits that the trio set out on
their journey. Naturally enough Venner was' curious to know what the
criminal charge would be.
"Though 1 hove found out a great
deal," he said, "I am utterly at a loss
to know what these fellows hove
been up to. Of course, I quite understand thot there is some underhand
business with regard to certain coins
but then these coins are real gold,
and it would not pay anybody to
counterfeit sovereigns worth twenty
shillings apiece."
"You don't think so," Egan suid,
drily. "We sliall be able to prove the
contrary presently. But hadn't you
better wait, sir, till the critical moment comes?"
"Very well," Venner laughed good-
naturedly. "I'll wait and see what
drnmntic surprise you have in store
for me."

The following letter from Mrs.

It is for women to submit to the
dangers of a surgical operation when
It may be avoided by taking Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
She waa four weeks In the hospital
•nd came home suffering worse
than before.
Here Is her own statement
Paw Paw, Mich.—"Two years ago
I suffered very severely with a dis-
placement I could
not be on my feet for
a long time. My
physician treated
me for seven months
without much relief
and at last sent me
to Ann Arbor for
an operation. I waa
there four weeks and
came home suffering
worse than before.
My mother advised
 —Jme  to  try   Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
and I did. Today I am well and strong
and do all my own housework. I owe
my health to Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound and advise my
friends who are afflicted with any
female complaint to try it."—Mra

IF ENGLISH LEFT HIOIA.
Conflicting  Races  and  Sectt  Would
Rend  Each  Other.
To the old Sikh, with his family
tradition oi war, the lure of young
Bengal has as yet little attraction,
"lhe Knglish beat us, and we and
they beat the Pooroeabs; now who are
the Bengalis that they should preach
to men of the sword:' Yve know oui
masters, with whom we share tue
army."
So when he talked it over with me
at au old friend, the spirit of tue
Khalsa, which from a sect had become a soldiery oi the Wallenstein
type, rang out mihless, forgetting the
plougu a..d the prize seed-corn.
"Pah, Bengal!" quoth he; "if the
English leave the country we would
see tu it that tliere be neither a nitr-
client nor a virgin left in Bengal iu
a month!" from which saying, again,
1 saw why India needs the cingliah,
chatter the B.A.'a never so wisely.
The good Knglish must keep the peace
for the millions who cannot keep it
for themselves
It was only a year ago that I chatted with some Afghan friends settled
within the British border lor at least
fifty years before that same border
became uritish.
"What," 1 asked, "would you do il
the Sirkar left the land?"
My friend was a civil officer of a
subdistrict who helped the Knglish
magistrate preach trade and agriculture; with him was his younger brother, a resalder in the ISth Cavalry;
a third brother was also in the same
regiment. "Hoi ho! Sahib," laugh-
ed he. "What would we do, eh? I will
tell you. Afsul here, and young Wali
Dad, who is with his regiment, we
should rahv flfty oi our own and our
fathers' retainers, Alisais and Ganda-
purs, and we should ride straight for
Bickaneer." /
"Ah," said I, in my ignorance,
"why for Bickaneer?"
"Because," said my friend the bene,
volent magistrate, "in Bickaneer city
all the rich Hindu merchants keep
their treasure.
"Yes, indeed," said the cavalry
brother, "and the Hindu banniah women are the finest in India."
And once again I saw clear that a
country of conflicting. ratoes and religions needs a rule that has at its back
the drawn sword and the galloper
gun.—From The Keys ol all the
Creeds, in The Cornhill Magazine.
Lauder as a Pit Boy.
The famous artiste's recent appeal
ou behalf of the pit ponies recalls the
fact that he started life as a pit boy
and for years worked as a miner. He
afterwards eked out a precarious livelihood by appearing at small local
concerts, sing-songs, and tlie like in
his native Scotland. Between now
and then, with a rapidity hardly
equalled, Lauder has made himself
a name to conjure with in the music-
hall world. With two or three performances every night, not tu speak
of royalties on his enormously popular songs, he now makes an income
which a prosperous barrister might
envy; but, "so far as I am concerned," he once declared, "1 find that
money makes no difference whatever,
save that when I want a thing I can
walk into a shop and get it. It's a
asaiit difference, 1 grant you; but
man's a man for a' that'."

British military Bulla.
Some queer, quaint efforts at
composition have been made by
British officers. A certain major ordained this: "Reveille will be at 3.30
a.m. The brigade will parade at t
a.m.' The brigade will move at 4.IS
a.m. The sun will rise at 5 a.m."
It was during the guerrilla war of
1901-2, after the building of the blockhouses, that it became necessary to
check the habit of the men of sleeping outside the blockhouses for the
sake of coolness and comfort, A certain staff officer thereupon issued the
following quaint order: "No one is
permitted to sleep outside the blockhouses except the sentries." Though
the intention of this order is clear,
its phraseology is not. "Men on outpost duty are forbidden to strike
matches on the sky line."—London

Has Changed Canada Into An Exporting Country
Inasmuch as economic history
shows a protective tariff to have been
the most successful policy in agricultural countries much older- than Canada, for instance, Russia, France,
Austria, Hungary, Belgium, Italy,
Germany, Holland and United States,
that sort of fiscal system should also
be best for Canada. The Canadian
farmer, especially in the West, has
hud the opportunity of seeing just
exactly how Protection helped him
in the flax industry. In the light of
events since 1907, when a protective
duty of 10 cents per bushel was placed
on flax, it is interesting to record
the prophetic words of a prominent
Canadian speaking at Winnipeg in
1906. He said: "Our flax is shut out
of the American market on account
of a duty of 25 cents per bushel.
Why do not our Canadian, farmers
ask our Government to place a duty
on flax grown in Canada to give them
the home market which they are justly entitled to? There is from one and
a half to two million bushels of flaxseed consumed in Canada annually
by our Canadian linseed oil crushers,
and why should a million bushels or
more of foreign seed be used instead
of buying "Grown in Canada" flaxseed, and grown right here in the
West, the best that can be produced?
"I wish to point out to the intelligent farmers of the West that the
American farmers find flax more profitable to grow than wheat and I hope
that, when revision of the tariff takes
place, there will be a duty placed on
flaxseed for the beneflt of the former
and that all flaxsed used in Canada
will be "Grown in Canada."
These utterances have been, since,
most fully vindicated. Up to 1907,
flaxseed entered Canada free of dutv,
and as shown by the statistical record of exports and imports for 1905
and 1906, Canada was an importing
country.
In 1905, imports were 176,887 bushels and exports wSre only 314 bushels.
In 1906 imports were 711,138 bushels for home consumption, and exports were only 2,824 bushels.
After the duty of 10 cents per bushel was placed against United States
and other foreign countries, Canada
became  an  exporting  country.       In
1908, imports were 495,154 bushels,
and exports were 10,997 bushels.   In
1909, imports steadily decreased to
288,468 bushels, and exports increased to 693,779. In 1910 imports of
flax were only 4,344 bushels, while
exports amounted to 1,997,648 bushels
which hod a value of $3,642,476.
Thus a protective duty has enriched the farmer in five years to the extent of over three and a half million
dollars.

A delicacy ol Australian savages is
the flesh of snakes which, with the
exception oi the liver, is too dry and
tasteless to appeal to civilised pal-
ates. Meat is usually baked in a
primitive oven, made by digging a
hole about a loot deep in the ground.
In the hole is built a Are wnioh it
covered with stones. When the stones
have become very hot the fire is extinguished and the stones are covered with green leaves, in which the
meat is placed. The hole is then filled with earth and is not re-opened
until the time determined for the cooking of the meat has elapsed.

of the animal. The addition of a

Are Your Children Properly Fed?
LET us talk about the right feeding of children.
Of course, you want your children to grow
up si rong and healthy; you want to equip tliem
for the battle of life with rugged constitutions and
good red blood. Now, the first step is to see that
they are properly fed. And these words "properly
fed" mean much in the diet of children. For it isn't
quantity that counts, but quality.
There is no better food under Heaven for
growing children than plenty of first class bread
and butter. They thrive on it, grow strong and fat
and rugged. Their systems crave it because it is a
complete, well-balanced food.
But the bread must be good—die very best, and tlie best U made
from ROYAL HOUSEHOLD FLOUR which contains the Jull
nutriment of tlte tut Red Fjft timet—for only wheat of thit
character contains enough of the right quality gluten to balance tht
search. Gluten makes bone tnd muscle, starch makes/or. lt takes
lbe right combination of both to mate prefer/, ial.se/J bread.
Bread made from OGILVIE'S ROYAL HOUSEHOLD
FLOUR it richest In blood building, muscle building, health buildidg

machine   will  accomplish miracles
in itiui constituency.
Ir is a Safe bet tlmt the Laurier
governmenl will have a majority of
fifty in the next house.
Thk Tories started the campaign
in ihis province by using the truil
growing industry as a leverage in
iheir attacks on the reciprocity
agreement. They raised the cry
that the ratification of the treaty
would ruin tbe horticulturists. As
far this valley it concerned these
lamentations of blue .ruin are now
proving a boomerang to theiu. The
eiiterpiis ng fruit growers of the
valley huve studied tlie arguments
for and against the treaty, and have
arrived at the conclusion that its
ratification can result in nothing
hut benefit to them. As a result
they are daily deserting the Conser-
vative ranks and flocking to the
side of the standard hearer of the
consuming masses and larger markets.
Many prominent Ounserviitives in
l.i.st Knotenay, like Peter bund, of
Wardner, a prominent lumberman
and mviier of a largo tract of land,
ure in favor of the reciprocity, and
do not hesitate to sny sai The election of Dr King, the Liberal candidate, is conceded by all independent
voters, irrespective of 'party.
NEWS OF THE CITY
At the council meeting on Monday night there was a stormy scene
between the chairman of the finance
committee antl the city auditor
Andrew Mcllwaine was appointed
assistant to the city clerk.
1854 and 18-Mi, when we Had reciprocity with the United State Under ihe agreement every industry
would receive an impetus. Lumbering, mining ami lhe fisheries would lie
benefited, and the fruit growers not
afraid of tho pact. Iloliiud high tariff
walls were the bleed.ng grounds of
trusts nnd monopolies. How could
the trusts secure control of uur natur
at resources under reciprocity. Thero
was enough eoal in the Crow's Nest
to lust for _!000 years.
The meeting broke up with ihree
cheers for the Liberal candidate of
Yale Ctuibuo. The (Irand Folks brass
baud rendered a number of appropriate selections during the intermissions
between the speeches.
Mrs. Jeff Davis left on  Monday
for a shorl visit in the coast cities.
Parents desirous of sending their
children to the primary division of
the public school are requested to do

Audit a year ago J. E. Letnaster,
a successful fruit grower, nrrived in
the city from the Wenatehee district, wnich has attained an international reputation as.the greatest fruit
growing section on this continent.
He was sn well pleased wilh the
outlook of lhe Kettle valley as a
fruit producing district that hi' nuiile
extensive purchases ol orchards anil
orchard hinds. During his residence
here his favorable opinion of lhe
valley has increased to such a degree that he hus often endeavored
to induce his Wenatobee friends to
dispose of their interests in that city
and locate here Intil recently, however, he has never heen able to exact ■■> promise fmiii them that they
waiulil iln so. Ami the promise was
mule on condition that the reciprocity treaty is ratified. Mr. Leninster
received a letter from his friends a
few days ago, in which ihey staled
that if the champions of larger.mar- ■■
Iteta in the (.r.-s.-m campaign in Can-!
ail-.i are successful ihey will remove
to this valley and engage in fruit',
graining. Mr. Lemaater says he
never could understand why land

fruit lands can he purchased in this
valley at Irom SlU" to SHOO par acre, i

political campaign, to obstruct reci
procity. But the lie whicli may be
labelled "The Parting of the Ways
Lie" is one of the skillful lies, and it
is being repeated over and over like a
refrain. It is a sly and insiduous fabrication, aud is mount to sink deep
and soak into loyal hearts, especially
into the heart of the British-born man
This lio tells that the "parting of the
ways" expression was used of politics
and not of commerce by President
Taft. Mr. Taft is represented as
having spoken politically when he
used it, and hia uieauing is represented to have been that Canada stood at
the cross-roads and must make
choice between the road that leads to
annexation and the Other Road. Of
all the Conseraative lies used against
reciprocity this is the sixty horsepower, sit cylinder daddy of them all.
The following is .exactly what Mr.
Taft said, in his special message to the
senate and the house of represent*,
tivea, aud what he said is ao clear
that it cannot be misunderstood
Here are his exact words: "The Dominion has greatly prospered, it has
an active, aggressive and intelligent
people. They are coming to the part
ing of the ways. They must soon de
a;ide whether they are to regard them
selves as isailated permanently from
our markets hy a perpetual «nil, or
whether we are tai be commercial
friends." — Saturday Sunset.

This talk of annexation is simply
beneath the contempt and beneath
the attention of a serious people. The
apostles of the policy of restriction today tell us that we cannot go into
this agreement, because they say if we
do we make it impossible, to have a
mutual preferential treaty with Great
Britain. It seems to me that there
should not be so much concern exhibited by the Conservative party for
preferential trade with Great Britain,
when at every step we took in that
direction they opposed it.—Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Mr. Borden's conduct on the naval
question has been cowardly, and in
view of the Quebec agitation has become mischievous.—London Advertiser.
To hear the Canadian opposition, iu
its argument against reciprocity, crying "Annexation! Annexation!'' re
minds one of a child crying in the
night and with no argument but a cry.

The Liberals now count that day
lost whose slow descending sun sees
not some Conservative preaching reciprocity at a- Liberal convention.—

"Oh! God, those AinaTioan dollars,"

Baby Eczema

Three   Doctors   and   Scores of Treat,

The Dreadful  Itching   Was   Stopped
and the Sores Healed by
DR. CHASE'S OINTMENT
Here is an illustration of the wonderful control which Dr. Chase's
Ointment lias over torturing, itching
eczema. By its soothing influence it
stops the itching, and it heals the
sores as if by magic.
Mrs. Wm. Miller, St. Catharines,
Ont., writes:—"My daughter, Mary,
when six months old contracteal
edema, and for three years the disease baffled all treatment. Her case
was one of the worst that had ever
eome under my notice, and she apparently Buffered what no pen could
ever describe. I had three different
doctors attend her, all to no purpose whatever, nnd nil kinds of
balms, lotions and soaps were tried,
witli no results.
"Finally I decided to try Dr.
Chase's Ointment and to my surprise
she Immediately began to improve,
and was completely cured of that
long-Standing disease. That waa. four
years ago, whi'ii we lived at Cornwall,
Ont., and as not a symptom has
shown itself since, tlie cure must he
permanent. With a grateful heart I
give this testimony to the great value
nf Dr. Chase's Ointment."
In scores of ways Dr. Chase's Ointment is useful in every home to allay skin irritations anil heal nnd cure

Bernard  Shaw.
Mr. Bernard ohaw's retirement
from the journalistic lists was signalized by ..is marriage to Miss Char,
lotte Frances Payne Townshend, who
nursed him back to' health and
strength—and matrimony—after a serious accident, "1 was very ill when 1
was married," Mr. Shaw once wrote,
"altogether a wreck on crutches, and
in an old jacket which the crutches
had worn to rags. 1 had aski'd my
friends, Mr. Graham Wallas, of the
London School Board, and Mr. Henry
Salt, the biographer ui Shelley and
De Qunicy. to act as witnesses, ami
of course, in honor ol the occasion
they were dressed in their nest
clothes. The r.gistrar never imagined
I could possibly be the bridegroom;
lie took i..e for the inevitable beggar
who completes afl wedding processions. Wallas, who is considerably
ajver six feet high, seemed to him tn
be the hero of the occasion, and he
was proceeding to marry him calmly
io my betrothed, wben VYa.las' thinking the formula rather strong for a
mere witness, hesitated at the last
•iioment, and left the priae to me."
Shaw is the quintessence of vital
energy. He rushes hither and thitner.
from one task to another, with a feverish, almost frenzied activity. He
has a country house in Hertfordshire.
When I asked him why he selected it.
he took me over to the old Knglish
church, redolent of mystery and
sanctity, and pointed to the inscription on a tomb near by—"Jane liver-
sley. Born 1815. Died 1895. Her
time was short." "1 thought," saial
Shaw, ."that i. it could be truthfully
said of a woman who lived to be
eighty years that her time was short,
then this was just exactly the climate for me."—Review of Reviews.
Designer of Coinage.
Sir Thomas Brock, who earned a
knighthood on account aif Ihe magnificent manner in which he carried
out the Queen Victoriu Memorial, had
to encounter a great deal o' opposition from his fnther. a Worcester
builder, in deciding to folW an ^r
tistic career. Indeed, it was only
with his mother's help tha* he was
able to come to London, where he
secured an apprenticeship in a sculptor's studio, which Bonn brought him
in the magnificent salary of $10 a
week. It was Sir Thomas who de.
signed the later Victorian coinage.
In 1801 the Government invited designs for the coinaue, Mr. Brock's
being considered mnst suitable.
Four years later the bronze coinage
was altered for the first time in
thirty-five y"irs. nnd. »» i i the former
case. Mr. Brock's initials were ap-
nended to it. Anybody looking carefully at the coinage of that p»riod
may notice the tiny letters "T.B."
heneath the Queen's shoulder and a
little to la" right of the central line.
It is worthy nf remnrk that Mr.
Brock accomplished the design without a single siltinc from the Queen.
He worked from photographs which
he found in shop windows.
Burglary In England.
Burglary cannot be committed in
tl. * daytime. The English rule is
that if there is light enough to see
the face of the intruder there is no
burglary. This, however, does not include moonlight, for a housebreaker
entering alter nightfall, however
brightly the moon may be shining, is
legally a bun. '".r—that is, if it is reasonably certain that he has entered
with the intent to commit felony, for
while a tramp breaking into a house
to sleep may be a housebreaker he is
not in the proper sense of a word a
burglar. Burglary, however, may
consist in breaking out as well as
breaking in, fur one who hides in a
house before nightfall to steal and
after stealing breaks out to get away
is just as much a burglar as he who
to effect his purpose breaks in.
Whan Cricket Playing Wa. a Crime.
Until a century and a half ago our
great national pastime in fact figured
in the statute liook as a crime. Th*
game was declared illegal in the time
of Edward IV., owing to its having
become so popular as to interfere
wilh archery, the then sport of kings.
The law against it was vigorously
enforced, and every person convictm!
of playing the game was fined IM or
sent to prison. It wias not until the
formation of the famous Hambledon
club in 1740 that thc statute was re-
pealed.-Pall Mall Gazette.
,. Scull and Skull.
Mr. George Alexander, the actor,
tells a good story of the old days of
the touring fit-up companies. They
were at Oldham, playing a melodrama
called "Current Cash." One of the
properties essential to the piece was
a light rowing scull, with whicli the
heri had to push himself off into tne
stream. When the company reached
Oldnuin the oar was missing, but the
property man promised to have one
ready for the evening's peiionuauce.
That afternoon, with evident pride,
he produced from the sacred reces-es
ot his room a real human skull, and
when it was pointed out lo him that
it was hardly what was required ha
declared, in haughty tones: "If tnat
skull's good enough lor 'Hamlet,' ll
ought to be good enough lor a piece
like 'Current Cash'."

WHEN SUMMER COMES
GUARD YOUR BABY
The summer months are the most
dangerous of the year for the little
one. The complaints of this season
come so quickly that often a precious little life is beyond aid before
the mother realizes baby is ill. Colic,
diarrhoea and cholera infantum are
all rife at this time. The mother
must guard her baby's health every
minute. She must be careful of his
food and careful that his stomach is
kept sweet and his bowels move reg-
larly and freely. To do this nothing
can equal Baby Own Tablets—they
nre mothers best friend at all times
of the year, but more especially in the
summer, when, if given occasionally,
they act as a preventative of those
dreaded summer troubles, or if they
do come on suddenly the Tablets will
just as quickly remove the cause and
baby will soon be well again. The
Tablets are sold by medicine dealers
or by mail at 25 cents' a box from The
Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

CURED   HIS   BLADDER  TROUBLE
Mr. Herbert Bauer, of Davisville,
says he owes Gin Pills a debt of gratitude which he can never repay. He

How Clouds  Gst  Their  Fringes.
Prol. Tyndall used to explain to
popular audiences, with the aid ol a
brilliant experiment, that the blue
color ol the sky is owing to floating
particles of invisible dust that break
up and scatter the short waves, which
are the blue waves, of light. This
occurs principally at a great elevation, where tne atmospheric dust is
extremely fine, while in tne lower
regions of the b.r, where the dust is
coarser, tne scattering affects all the
rays, or colors, alike, 'ihe brilliant
fringes of o.ouds, seen nearly in the I
direction ol the sun, are largely due j
to dust, which especially accumulates
in the neighborhood of clouds and ra-
tracts the sunlight arouud their edges.

Origin  of  Famous  Monument  Veiled
In Mystery.
The first serious inquiry into the
origin ol Stonehenge came trom a
characteristic quarter, no less a person than the British Solomon, King
James 1., who, says Tlie London
Globe, d;rected Inigo Jones, the famous architect, to undertake the task
At the time of his death Inigo had
prepared some notes only. These were
edited by a relative at the desire ot
two famous men, Harvey, discoverer
of the circulation of the blood, and
Seldcn, the lawyer; the theory advanced being that Stonehenge was "a
temple after the Tuscan order." ll
would be interesting to know how
much of the work was really lnigo's,
as it was based on certain geometric
measurements which proved to have
been less accurately done than m.ght
have been expected Irom an architect.
The popular theory that monuments
such as Stonehenge, or the circles at
Keswick and elsewhere in the Lake
district, were Druids' temples, originated with Dr. William Stukeley.
Stukeley was a man uf great learning,
but allowed his ideas to run away
with him.
His arguments formed a remarkable
study,    lie nail seen the circles, ap-
Karently temples without priests; he
ad read ul the Druids, apparently
priests without temples. He wished to
connect them. Then he lound in Pliny
a fantastic story that in Gaul the
serpents congregated at midsummer,
and produced from theh* saliva an
egg to which magic virtues were ascribed. This Ihey cast into tlie air,
seemingly after the modern ritual ol
tossing the pancake, and he who would
possess himself of the talisman must
catch it ere it reached ..ie ground
and fly for safety beyond running
water; ior all the terrors that Tain
o' Bhanter or Elsie Venner braved
were his Pliny crowns the whole
by saying that he had seen one of
these eggs; so when he adds that they
were regarded as a charm by the
Druids, Stukeley had no hesitation in
Baying that the circles were erected
by the Druids for serpent worship.
But why were they circles? Because,
said Stukeley, they represented the
coils of an enormous snake, worked
in boulders, the image of their deity.
To demonstrate this he made a survey of the lines of stones near the
circle at Avebury. The resulting snake
was semi-detached, neither continuous
nor convincing, and it was only by
the help oi artistic license that he
was able to produce the required diagram. Later he supplemented this by
a plan of certain remains at Shap.
Westmoreland. He himself remained
at Carlisle—he was a wise man, for
the weather was bad—and sent a
young surveyor to do the work. He
was a wise man also, ior he knew
what his master wanted to find and
he found it, having prepared, it is
said, a plan of all the stones in a
day — an utter impossibility. Yet
Stukeley's theories created an extra-
ordinary sensation at the time, and are
accepted to some extent even to thi*
day.
BROWN SWISS BREED
OF DAIRY CATTLE
It Is sometime* claimed that th*
dairy quality of tbe Brown Swiss
breed bas been Improved and tbe breed
"refined" by the American breeders
who have cultivated tbla breed for the
last thirty yeara, writes E. M. Barton
In Hoard's Dairyman. The method ot
"refining" has emulated In feeding the
calves less liberally while they are
growing and in breeding the heifers
about a yeur earlier than Is the Swiss
practice, thus making tbem lighter
and leaner tban they would be If they
bad bad the usual care tbat Is given
to young cattle'In Switzerland. By
following this practice for two or three
generations tbe normal weight of the
cows Is reduced two or three hundred
pounds, und this la done without spoiling the cows for milking purposes.
Whether this practice takes off something from the milk and butter quality
and whether It takea off something
from Ihe useful life of the cow Is hard
to prove one way or tbe otlier, but I'
hold to the theory that, the breed being
of the highest dairy quality und ut the
same time of considerable weight aa
lt hns been bred for hundreds of generations In Switzerland, the chance*
are thut tbe "refining" process, so
called, which has gone on In this country Is In reality a stunting process and
that by liberal feeding of tbe calves,
as Is practiced ln Swltxerland, and
comparatively late breeding of tbe
heifers we shall keep to the true Swiss
type and have better milk and butter
yields and longer life.
There were at the national dairy
ebow ln Chicago last fall two cows,
Iown I-ossle and Mernle,■ that represent five generations of American
breeding. The former wu selected by
the Judge as tbe champion cow of tbe
breed, and the latter had made a fine
record for amount and economy of
production at tbe Wisconsin experiment station. Theae cows have finer
bone, the hind leg* are less straight,
tbeir weight under 1,200 pouuds, and
In the view of many experts showed
the highest dairy quality. They are
good mllkera and good cows, but to my
mind they ore not as typical representatives of tbe breed as tbe big
headed, strong legged, square buttock-
ed 1,900 pound cows tbat are Imported
snd occasionally raised ln this country
and such as you find represented In
large numbers ln tbe stables ot tbelr
own country.
The normal weight of Iown Lassie,
tbe champion cow, la 1,130 pounds.
Wltb her second calf ahe gave within
Jack Tar's Lettsrs.
It is easy enough for you to drop
your letters in a pillar-box and know
that they will he delivered with al'
due speed. But Jack, especially
when he is cruising in foreign waters,
has to wail weeks or even months to
get a reply to his correspondence.
On every British war vessel a corpora' or lance-corporal of the Royal
Marines is specially told off to collect
and dispatch letters and parcels. He
is the local postoffice and postmaster,
for he sells stamps and generally acts
for and gives information to the members of the ship's company about
their mail. All the letters for England are fastened up in private hogs I
and addressed to the G.P.O., London.
These bags are sealed with the de. |
sign of a British ensign around which
are the words. "The Seal ot His Majesty's Ships."
Many ol the letters that ore received Irom Jack Tar bear English
stamps and the London postmark,
which rather puzi.es recipients. But
the foregoing paragraph explains this
simply enough. These moil hags,
when properly sealed, are taken
ashore lay the ship's postman and
delivered to the nearest postoffice.
Very olten the latter is twenty or
thirty milea away and consists of a

Royal Cyclists.
King George, who has just presented a perpetual challenge trophy (or cyclists, haa long been an enthusiast of
the wheel. L.ke so many other members of his family, he was taught to
ride by Mr. Mayes, a famous racing
man of the 'eighties, and proved such
an adept pupil that, to quote his instructor's words, "He didn't want any
teaching. He jumped on his bicycle,
wobbled about a bit, and away he
went, riding it—well, not exactly like
an old hand, but very well." Mr.
Mayes' first royal pupil was Princess
Henry uf Battenberg, who had her
flrst lesson (on a tricycle) in the
grounds ol Buckingham Palace. Queen
Alexandra (then Princess ol Wales)
had her lirst lesson at Saudringham
on a tricycle which had been built iu
five days as a Christmas present lor
her.

The provincial health ollicer stntes
that the report recently circulated in

cows al one of lhe dairies in this

to be killed, is without foundation,
He says he examined tbe animals,
und in his judgment they nre in a
healthy condition. The story that
a member of the family of the own

of death is also groundless.
