Advertise the Climate
Editor Orand fork, Sim.
I often tell the people I meet here
in Ontario about ihe mild climate of
British Columbia, and I find that my
statements have a much stronger1 effect when I give specific facta and
dates. T have kept a record of the
dates on whioh the buttercups have
first appeared in bloom at Urand
Forks during the last four, years, and
I know from my own experience in
telling to people, both in Manitoba
and Ontario, that it would be a wise
thing tu give these dates in any booklets that may he issued and scattered
through the country concerning the
resources and attractions of Grand
Forks. In 1910 tbe firat buttercups
were gathered' oo February . 17; in
19II, on February 25; in 1912, on
February 20, aud in 1913, on March
9. It will be seen from these dates
that February 17 represents ' the
end ot a shurt winter at Orand Forks,
and March 9 the end of a long winter,
but the longest winter at Grand Forks
is very. u_uch shorter than the shortest
winters in Ontario and Manitoba.
I have often thought of writing to
you about this matter, as I think the
people of Grand Forks do uot give sufficient prominence to,their climate in
advertising the town. I remember
once talking to a well-known resident
ot Grand Forks who had been seat by
the Granby company to the Queen
Charlotte Islands. He stayed there
f jr some time, and when he returned
I aaked him how he liked it. Bis re
ply was, "lt haa the worst 'climate
God ever made;" and he added, after
a monaut'a reflection, "Grand Forks
has the best climate God ever  made.
It is the hope of most of moat of
the residents of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Albert* to go to a milder cli
mate when they retire, and moat of
them look with longing eyes toward
British Columbia. Most of these people, having been used for many yeara
to dry, frosty winters, find tbe climate
of the coast much too damp for them,
and many of them, after living at the
coast for a year or two, go back to
the cold hut dry winters of the prai
ries. The people of the prairie prov
inces should be told that at Grand
Forks they ean have winters of ehe
dry and frosty type to which they
have been used, but much shorter aud
less seveae. There ara m-tny wealthy
men in the prairie pjovinoes who are
ready to retire from active business,
and who would be glad to go to Grand
Forks and settle there with their
wives and families if they knew about
the olimate. Such men would build
Urge and beautiful residences, and
have beautifully-kept grounds. They
would contribute greatly toward giving Grand Forks and the valley in
whioh it ia placed the kiwi of  beauty
An Artistic Recital by Prof-
Werner's Students on
Monday Night
The piano and violin recital by
Fridolph Werner's student.-, in the
Grand Forks opera house oh Monday evening, was greeted by a crowded house.
The opening number was an overture, "The Jolly Robbers," hy Werner's six-piece orchestra, whicb was
well rendered and fully appreciated
by tbe audience. Miss Barnum's
violin solo. "Lonely," was also well
rendered/' A selection entitled
"Vienna Waltzes" was ably given
by the Misses Gwenny Mcllwaine,
Edith Larsen, Helen Peterson and
Master Stanley Donaldson. The
piano solo, "Shanson des Alps,"
gi^eu by Miss Ivy Taylor, with second piano in score, revealed good
technical training. The piano solo,
"Snower of Stars," by Miss Marie
Barnum. wbo responded to au encore, was one of tbe best numbers
on tbe program. Miss M. Batman, a
student from Pboenix, was also a
very capable performer on tbe piano.
Mies C. Miller distinguished herself
by her rendition of H. Alberti's
classic fantasia from "11 Trovator,"
for the piano. The final item was
an overture, "Poet and Peasant,"
arranged for a quartette on tbe piano,
witb oicbestia in score. Tbis selec
tion waa perhaps the best of the
evening, and the performers all
tbrough tbis difficult piece showed
greet adaptability to the r respective
parts. Those wbo uontiihuted to the
success of tbe entertainment weie
the Misses Ri»a Ross, Sylvia Ross,
Esther Larsen and Myrna Pell
Others who assisted verv ably in the
concert were Miss Gladys Traunweiser, piano solo; Master Archer
Davis, piano solo; Miss Helen De
Cew, Joyce McLeod, Myrtle Spraggett, Arthina Donnon, Amy Mcllwaine, Marie Fritz and Emma Need-
bam in piano quartettes. Messrs. C.
McKay, L. Ware ond J. B. McLeod

Unlucky   Stock   Speculations   Drive
Englishman  Insane and to Commission of Crime
Vienna.—The suicide recently ol
Mr. Charles Vincjih Banting, after
shooting his wife, Adellna, has created considerable sensation here. Mr.
Banting was a Londoner by birth,
and his wlte was also Knglish. So
far as can be gathered, they lived on
the happleBt of termB 'with each
The motive ot the crime has nol
been established, but lt ls thought probable that Mr. Banting's mind had become unhinged as the result of unlucky stock exchange speculation. It
Is slated that aome yeara ago, when
hie wife was seriously ill, Mr. Banting
attempted to take his lite, but the servant took his revolver trom him.
This servant, Barbara Crutia, gives
a dramatic account of the tragedy. At
noon ahe said, Mr. Banting came
home from the office in a very exclt
ed condition. The couple discussed
the financial situation at the mid-day
meal, and Mrs. Banting advised her
huBband to remove to England and get
a position there.-' ^
instead of going back to the office,
Mr. Banting went to a store room, and
remained there for aome time. The
servant called him and reminded blm
of the time, whereupon he asked her
to help him on. with his coat, and took
his hat as It to go out, but instead
of going he returned to the room.
Meanwhile Mrs. Banting, who spoke
very little German, was taking a lesson In the dining room from a lady
teacher, Frauloln Huesserl. She broke
off Ihe lesson to see why ber husband
was still at home, and was warned
by the servant that Mr. Banting seem-
id very excited, and. had taken s6me
hunting cartridges out* of a box.       .
Mrs. Banting I aid no heed to the
warning. She entered the room and
through the open door Frauleln Huesserl heard he. say to her husband:
Charlie give up that rifle. You know
ftS-l eland it. immediately there
las Ihe sound of a shot. The.servant
ran to the room and found Mrs.
Banting lying on the floor, with Wood
flowing fro... a wound ln the heed.
Then she was compelled to witness
n still more /terrible scene. Mr.
Burning was standing with |WI«
rifle in his hand, close by a chest. He
rested Hie weapon on the chest, and
simultaneously, pressed the- trigger
wlih one hand. There was a second
report and he, too, fell to thc floor
Medal for a Dog

Constantinople, Turkey.—On tho
desolate open apace, part drill ground
and part dunghill, whicb we know locally aa tbe 'Field of Mars,' yon will
aee any morning just now long strings
ot animals tied bead to tall. Tbey are
or once were, hones, pack animals of
the baggage train, and tliey have been
eent back here trom the army as unlit
tor further service.
Their shaggy, mud-matted hides sink
Into hollows among the framework .it
bones they cover. Every single back
ls raw with suppurating aores as big
as your two hands. Nearly every
horse is lame and some are constantly falling and bave to be flogged io
their feet to hobble on to the veterinary officer wbo Is dividing the curable* from the Incurables. They hava
been driven In tor two or tbree days'
march without food, often without water, aud tiie famishing animals gnaw
tbe rope that ties them to the next
horse In the string.
Tbe veterinary officer makes a rapid examination of each horse. Some
he picks out as capable of recovery
They are sent to the cavalry barrack
stables for a rest before going back io
work. For the others a worse fate
Is reserved. In shambling, hobbling
drove's the dying beasts are herded
dowu the hill, across the Golden Horn
and up to the horse bazaar near the
Faith Mosque. Here they are sold
for 10 to 16 piastres each—for 40
cents to 80 cents—sold to be worked
by tbelr buyers for a few days until ln
sheer weakneee they drop for tbe last
time, till no beating ean get them on
tbelr feet again and they are left tn
die. •   '
And wben you ask why the poor
brutes cannot be mercifully destroyed
Instead you get the naive answer that
the Koran forbids a Mussulman to
take lire.
There has probably never, been more
wastage of horseflesh ln any campaign.
Tbe Turk la a gool enougb horseman,
but no horsemaeter at all. Three
weeks after the war began the horses
ot tbelr best cavalry regiments were
in an appalling condition. In the
Interests, presumably, of soldierly
alertness, the horses were picketed at
night with their saddles on, and the
result was sores that made th*: lioisct'
i.acka look aa It they had bei-1 partly
With the pack animals it was even
worse. They were ot all sorts and
sizes, commandeered haphazard ae
tbey chanced to come along in the
streets of Constantinople _._ But however they varied ln shape or dimensions the same regulation wooden
pack saddle, turned out by tbe hundred, was clapped on to tbe back of
eacb without lbe least alteration or
easing, and kept there night and day.
There Is some talk of the raising of
a small fund by English women bere
to buy a few score of the worst ot
these pitiable animals and take them
to a country farm where tbey may be
turned out te grass, or If they are too
far "gone privately destroyed.
Lad Is Forced to Wed Under Threat
ot Inatant Death
St. Petersburg, Russia. — The
forcible abduction and compulsory
marriage of a Causlclan youth are reported from Kutals.
■A prelly girl of 16 named Rogova,
who lives in Ibe village of Kulla-Karl,
fell In love witb a handsome boy ot
the same age, named Sari, who lived
in a neighboring hamlet. Either
from shyness or from disinclination
Sari did nol. respond to the love-sick
maiden's advances, and she therefore
enlisted Die aid of a band of young
tribesmen, who made a raid at night
nn the dwelling of Sari's parenie and
carried Ihe youth off lo a hill fastness,
where Rogova was walling for blm.
At lli-sl. Sari rejected Ilie proffered
hand nf Rogova. but his abductors
threatened to kill him on the spot unless be made Rogova Ills bride. Under
compulsion Sari consented. The next
day the abduclors made another raid
In :i different direction and bore to the
rendezvous a clergyman, who unwillingly solemnized the marriage of Rogova und Sari.
In the meantime nn armed parly organised by the boy's parents, wbo were
well-to-do people, had found.lhe trail
nf lhe fugitives, but they arrived too
late to prevent lhe r.iarrlage. After
a stormy scene ihe opposing parties
were reconciled, and Rogova bore off
her now smiling bridegroom In- triumph to her home in Kulic-Kavl.

A Woman Says Inebriates are Usually Fine Fellows—Should be Given
Milk to Drink
London.—ln an address on the curing ot drunkards, Dr Mary Murdoch,
at a conference of . the Yorkshire
County union of the British Women's
Temperance association which was
held at Hull, said that drunkards
as a rule were the very nicest of people, with wonderfully line natures
which made it difficult for them to resist temptation. Women whose li'js-
bands gave way to drink should give
them a varied diet of milk, eggs, veg-
(tables, poultry and fruit, and sh nut!
avoid tho grosser forms of butcher's
meat. Cayenne pepper and-sweets
-vould temporarily put off the craving
for alcohol.

curing of alcoholism was more a matter ot faith beating than anything else,
and secret remedies advertised when
tried were almos* invariably followed
by lapses. There was nothing like
sensible bard work to prevent the recurrence of the craving wben drunkards tried to cure themselves.

How to Get New Health and New
Strength at This Season.
Spring ailments are not Imaginary.
Even the most robust find tbe winter
months most trying to their health
Confinement Indoors, often In overheated ahd nearly always badly ventilated roofns—tn the home, the office,
tbe shop and the schools, taxes tbe vitality of even tbe strongest. The
blood becomes tbln and watery and la
clogged with Impurities. Some people nave headaches and a feeling of
langour. Others are low-spirited and
nervous. Still- others are troubled
with disfiguring pimples and skin
eruptions, wbile some get up tn the
morning feeling Just as tired as when
they went to bed. These are all
spring symptoms tbat the blood Is out
of order and that.a medicine le needed. Many people take purgative
medicines ln the spring. Tbls ls a
serious mistake. You cannot cujc
yourself with a medtolne that gallops
through your system and leavee you
weaker still. This Is all that a purgative does. Wbat you need to give
you health and strength ln tbe spring
Is a tonic medicine that will enrich the
blood and soothe the jangled nerves.
And tbe one always reliable tonic and
blood builder Ib Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. These Pills not only banish
spring weakness but guard you against
the more serious ailments that follow,
such as anaemia, nervous debility, In-
oigeetlon, rheumatism, and other diseases due to bad blood. Mlsa Lilian
Howe, Portland, Ont., says: "A little
over a year ago I was ln a very anaemic condition, suffering from most ot
the symptoms of tbat trouble. Often
I spent sleepless nights, and felt aa
tbougb I did not care whether I lived
or not. In this condition I began
taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
after the use' of ten or twelve boxes
,1 was restored to the blessing of perfect health. I teel, therefore, that I
cannot spy too much ln praise ot this

sheets are then coated with a killed
spirit flux. They are next plsced
upon a holder laid at an ingle of
forty-five degrees to thc tinning pot,
so that the excess of tin will return
by^gravity. The molten tin is poured
over the copper sheet and any excess wiped off with mops made of
plumber's tow. Tlie oxide formed on
the reverse side of the sireet from the
hest .of the molten tin is removed by
dilute sulphuric acid pickles. The
sheets are, washed and dried and then
if necessary rolled again to gauge and

whiting mixed with a little kerosene
oil, the surface being polished afterward with a little ol the dry whiting
