Kettle River Valley Rifle
Many Frizes
Three Local Records Were
Broken During tbe Thirteen Events
The annual shoot of the Kettle
Kiver Valley Rifle association was
successfully held on October 1 and
2. The number of entries was less
tban last year, but tbis was probably due to the fact that the fruit
fair being held September 26 and
27, a great many could not get away
from tbeir work another two days in
the following week.
Some very good shooting was
done S 0. Kirk made the possible at 200 yards, winning tbe Royal
bank oup. John Hay won the
Burns cup witb 33 in the rapid fire
at 200 yards. Captain Spraggett's
team again won the cup in the team
■hoot at 500 yards. The cup now
becomes the property of the win'
ners. There was a difference of only
six pointa, Mr. Kirk's team leading
until the laat man fired,
Tbe aggregate cup for the 200,
500 and 600 yards was wan by" S.
0. Kirk witb 96, which is a very
good score.
Three local records were broken
tha possible made by S. O. Kirk at
200 yards, the score of 33 in tbe
rapid fire made by Mr. Hay, and
the aggregate score of 96 for tbe
200, SCO and 600 yards made by
Mr. Kirk.
A very fitful wind sprang up
about noon of the first day and continued throughout tbe afternoon.
Tbe second day was more windy
than tbe first, and at times tbe targets wart very hazy, caused by tbe
smoke trom the smelter, which is
only 200 yards distant. Tbe wind
increased to aimoat a gale, and was
very unsteady while tbe 1000 yards
event was shot off, whicb accounts
for tbe poor scores made at tbis

The special representative of the
London Financial Times, II. Wood-
house, in an interview with Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy, tbe president
of the Canadian Pacific Railway
company, on behalf of bis paper,
elicited some facts of great general
interest in connection with the new
proposed southern main line to the
Pacific coast, a route wbich will
shorten tbe distance from Winnipeg
to tbe coast by no less tban four
hundred miles, and the time of the
journey by twenty hours, no mean
consideration to tbe public, especially in view of the continually increased congestion of tbe railway
year by year. Mr. Woodbouse's interview is herewith reproduced:

joy a good cigar. It was under ideal
conditions such as tbese tbat I bave
mentioned tbat I approached Sir
Thomas. For a few minutes we
chatted on general topics, and when
I'saw tbat tbe cigar was burning
perfectly, and the length of the ash
was causing him considerable satis
faction, I fired at him my leading
"Wbat information can you g ve
me about the new southern main
line, sir?"
"Well, we are progressing very
satisfactorily," replied Sir Thomas.
"It is a great big job and, considering the amount of otber work in
band, is being built very rapidly,"
and putting bis finger on tbe map
he pointed out tbe route. "We bave
already built out. from Weyburn
about 170 miles and the steel will be
laid tbis fall, wbile from the Stirling eud we bave graded the road for
36 miles and sball lay tbe steel at
"When do you expect to complete
tbis section?"
"Fairly early next year. In fact,
as soon as possible."
"Do I understand, Sir Thomas,
tbat you are going straight through
Stirling and are going to miss Lethbridge!"
"Yes, we are," replied tbe president of the road.
"Now, how about tbe tunnel at
Hope, between Hope and Penticton?" I enquired.
Not soTast, not so fast," said Sir
Thomas, laughing. "We must he
satisfied witb reaching Stirling for
the moment. Tunnels of the twenty
million dollar variety need some
thinking about and providing for;
we do not build railways quite so
fast, even in Canada, young man.
As I said, you must be satisfied witb
the fact tbat we are building the
new southern road wbich will be of
tbe greatest value to us, but beyond
Stirling I will not discuss with you
for tbe time being."
Sir Thomas is not a man to argue
witb, and aa tbe cigar was fast nearing its end I hesitated and tben
risked one last question, "How will
this affect Lethbridge?"
Sir Thomas looked at me quizzically and gently blew tbe smoke
from tbe cigar into tbe air and replied irrelevantly, "It will not do
Stirling any harm."
The cigar went out; Sir Thomas
went out; hnd then I Went out.

The Annual Convention to bt Held at

Dry-Farming means better farming
according to the official call of the
International Dry-Farming Congress,
the annual convention ot the dry-land
farmers of the world, which meets
October 19-26 next at Lethbridge, In
Southern Alberta, In the heart of one
of the greatest grain belts. The definition of the term "dry-farming,"
which is coming Into such general use
everywhere and of which thousands
have never learned the essentials, ls
most Interesting, and, furthermore, it
Is logical, and the adaptation of Its
precepts has brought reward to those
farmers who have looked to science
to aid them where misfortune and
hard luck through unfavorable weather conditions pursued their neighbors
who farmed as their fathers and
.grandfathers did before them.
Every civilized country ln ttteVorld
ls now studying the tillage and crop,
ping methods taught by the International Dry-Farming Congress, and its
monthly scientific bulletins and reports go to the four corners of the
earth. Its corps of Instructors Is
famed world-wide, and Its next Convention promises to be attended by
agriculturists from some SO nations
and official delegations' from some 30
states and provinces of the United
States and Canada, upholding the
great agricultural Interests of tbe
North American Continent.
Dry-Farming, says the call, Ib a
scientific term used by colleges and
authors to differentiate between the
new system ot agriculture and the
older methods utilized in the rain-
belts and Irrigation districts. A
special system of tillage of the soil
for the purpose of moisture and fertility conservation Is known to be
necessary for at least 63 per cent of
the agriculture acreage ot the world,
and the Dry-Farming Congress was
brought Into existence for the purpose
of working out these problems and
remedies for the troubles confronting
farfaersNif the sub-humid districts, or
in districts where there are frequent
draughts or falling soils. Dry-Farming is free from mystery of any kind!

Dry-Farming methods' can be utilized wlti profit upon every acre in
every district of tho world. The
phrase does not mean the operation
of farms where no moisture ts obtainable, but does mean the utilization of
such tillage methods as are from time
to time demonstrated to be most efficient in the reduction of evaporation
and the production of a practical storage reser.olr ln the sot), the utilization of minimum or untimely moistures, etc. The work of the Congress
includes the study of farm machinery,
tillage, the development of drought-resistant plants and better methods on

A Grim Proviso
A curious occupation has sprung up
in Paris Several doctors have received a circular from a newly-formed agency, which offers to find patients for them. The tees are rather high. They vary from $20 to
$100. On receipt ot the fee the doctor 1b assured a list of 20 consumptives, 30 epileptics, 20 people suffering from cancer and so forth. He
ls then at liberty to call and offer his
services. The agency's circular declares that the lists ot patients are
compiled from absolutely certain
sources and that the money will be returned lf there are more than three
mistakes ln each list. This ls
rather a grim proviso.
A Remarkable Dog
A dog which had, during nine years
ot its life, collected upwards of 15,000
coins under remarkable conditions,
died on Saturday at Reading. The
money had been devoted to local charities. The dog never carried a box,
but begged for a coin. For a halt-
penny the dog demanded a biscuit as
r. condition of releasing the cSin, and
two biscuits were required In exchange fo. a penny or two coins. In
all, the Cog had earned 18,000 biscuits ln its philanthropic collecting.

Minard's Liniment Cures Distemper
Japs Want Longer Legs
The attempts now being made to
lengthen the legs of Japanese schoolchildren, so that eventually the stature of the race may equal that of the
European and American, were described to the City Club recently by
Harvey N. Shepard, of Boston.
Mr. Shepard had Just completed a
globe-encircling trip, which was devot-
et*. to Btudy of local self-government.
Children ln Japan now sit upon
chairs Instead of squatting, he declared. This Is being done as an
attempt to make their legs grow longer,
Japanese surgeons say that the
trunk of a Japanese ls as large as
that of a European, but that the
former's legs are much shorter, making the race of Nippon appear decidedly smaller, lf the legs of several
generations can be stretched by using
chairs, Instead of the old custom of
squatting, the Jap will be as tall as
men of other nations'. • .

Spanking Inspiration
Olle was recalcitrant and she was
wise. Mamma had certain rules tor
punishing her irrespresslble offspring
and they were as unalterable as those
of the Medes of whom Olle had never
heard but whose rigor she understood.
So when Olio forgot mamma's commands one day and lingered too long
at forbidden play she felt the coming
storm as she meandered home. Then
came an Inspiration.
Aunt Annie, won't you spank me,
please? Olle fairly shouted at her
aim tie.
Why, Olle; what do you mean?
What have you done? ,
Then otme a tearful confession ot
wrong-doing, and as a climax:
Please, you spank me, Aunt Annie;
mamma hurts more than you do. -
It Is only fair to state that Olle
escaped altogether this time.
Minard's Liniment Cures Garget In
A Novel Complaint
A real estate man was confronted
with a novel case of fault-finding the
other day, and is still a little puzzled
by It.
It appears that he negotiated the
sale of a piece of land for a special
purposs several years ago, and the
property, through neighborhood
changes, has become worth ten times
what the present owner paid for it.
The other day the same man came
In and said he wanted another lot
for a special purpose. The dealer
told him he had the very thing, adding that he believed the land would
increase tn valuo In tbe same ratio
the flrst had done.
Not on your life, cried the prospective customer. I bought a $3,000
lot from you and lt serves my purpose
as well as if lt cost twenty times as
much. Instead 61 paying the expenses on a $3,000 lot, however, I am
assessed on a $30,000 one and have no
possible .way of making up the difference. Sell me a $3,000 lot that will
stay put at $3,000 this time, and don't
.you dare saddle me with a hungry
white elephant.

More About
The Loading Platform
The present generation of Western farmers will never know the
difficulties and v xatlcns experienced by their predecessors In the
earlier years when no one could get a carload of grain shipped ln
bulk except by io._dlng lt through an elevator. The system forced
the majority of farmers to sell their grain to the elevator owners
at arbitrary rrici s, and oft times to submit to heavy, dockage and
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now however
the distribution o! ..ars as fixed by the Oraln Act, and the use of the
loading platform, provide facilities which enable the farmer- to secure
satisfactory treal.ra_.nt in tbe disposal ot his grain, and the highest
market prices at time of sale. Every farmer therefore, should more
and more endeavor to use the loading pli.tf'irm In shipping his grain
to the terminal elevators. It ls the safeguard ot the farmers' freedom ln disposing of his grain to the best advantage for himself. If
farmers retrain from using the loading platform freely, lt might result in its being done away with, becaure railway companies and
elevator owners are strongly opposed to 1'.. lt ls easy to understand why elevator people desire the leading platform abolished.
The railway neople on their part Bay it delays the loading of cars
and helps to cause car shortage. This we know to be nonsense,
because frequently after cars are loaded whether with grain, coal
lumber or other merchandise, they are sidetracked for days aad even
weeks Instead of ticlng promptly moved forward to destination. It
is engine shortage and shortage of competent train men that mostly
causes grain Uockades on rajtways and not lack of cars. Let every
farmer therefore, do all he can to use t._e loading platform and become an independent shipper. In subsequent advertisements We
will state In detail the savings and oth»r advantages of direct loading into cars compared with loading through elevators.
We handle the farmers grain strictly on commission, make liberal
advances on can bills of lading, supervise the grading at time cars
are Inspected, secure the highest prices at time of sale and make
prompt returns when sold. Write us ior shipping instructions aha

Tardy Honors for Lady Hamilton
An extraordinary proposal has been
made, apparently in good taith, to exhume the remains ot Emma, Lady
Hamilton, trom her grave ln Calais
and transport them to Westminster
Abbey. The argument is-that Nelson bequeathed her to the country,
and sentimentalists think that some
amends tor letting her die In poverty
may be made by burying her nearly
a century later ln the "national Valhalla."   '
It Is argued that lt was only
through her Influence that Nelson
went to rea again and so fought and
won his greatest victory .at Trafalgar. He had formed a desire to settle down to a country life, but Lady
Hamilton persuaded htm to make one
more cruise ln the service of his
country. .
Those who oppose thotrnnsfer Biggest that her motive was not patriot-
Ism, but a desire tor a little * more
limelight, and they add that although
lt Ib true ehe ran through a property
ot (2,000 i. year of her own she was
not exactly starving when Bhe died,
as she Was ln the enjoyment of an
annuity ot $200 settled upon her by
her daughter Horatla.

The Psychology of I tal Ieo
Doctors of style ln the writing of
English declare that the use ot Italics
for emphasis Is a positive fault, show,
ing weakness of construction and inability to express ideas strongly by a
right arrangement of words. Nevertheless, Italics are used deliberately
by some forceful writers to gain added
effect and to fasten the eye and tbe
mind of tl.e reader upon Important
points somewhat as a speaker will
strengthen his oration by vocal emphasis and gesture. Whatever may
be said for or against the use of Italics
they certainly reveal the writer's
sens* of relative Importance in the
thlugs he has written. He has
selected words and phrases, and has
given them special prominence. As
we pote their significance we begin
to know mora of the man behind
the words. His choice ot emphasis
tells us what manner of man he Is.
His Italics are either an Index of bis
mental or moral character.
We ara all writing history day by
day. On every page some things
are written small, others stand out
boldly ln Italics. Take up the book
ct night and read the story of the
day. It will be an Interesting record—perhaps a startling one. Doubtless we shall feci very much like correcting the proof when we find where
the Italics are set.—Christian Herald.

Size of Puturs Ships
Sir William White, a loading naval
architect, declared recently that tke
ttcta that tend to limit the Increase
ln thc size of ships are chiefly commercial. Large Alps coBt more to
build than small ones, and are .more
expensive to operate. Moreover
they are not so sure of obtaining
their complements of passengers or
cargo without delay. In addition,
comparatively few harbors possess
channels of sullieient dopfh or docks
forge enough, to accommodate ves-
ecl3 even of the length and weight of
tho Mauretanla. Sir William believes that although large ships will
continue to ply between a few -favored ports Cor special services, and
even larger ones may be built, thc
great bulk of ocean traffic will continue to be carried by vessels of moderate size.

Geo. Ham's Laundry
T story ts told ot a party of eastern manufacturers who were making
a trip thtough the Canadian Northwest. The train waB running about
three hours late and it was essential
that they reach a certain point A—
on time to make train connections
without dejay. As they proceeded
however, the train lost mdre- tlmo and
the easterners began to get nervous.
They hunted up the conductor and
had him Interview. the crew, but
there wos no gain In speed. At a
stopping point they Interviewed the
crew personally and threatened to
telegraph Sir Thomas Shaughnessy,
but this had no effect.
Finally a happy thought struck one
o(. the Montreal travellers. He
knew that George Ham was travelling
ln the'west with/an English party.
He also knew that George Ham always Bent his laundry to Montreal
and it was forwarded to him where-
ever he happened to be. He told his
confreres, and hunting up the conductor had him send a note to the
engine driver that George Ham's
laundry was on board and that the
.train must reach him at A— in
time to deliver it to him. Tl,. hint
of George Ham's laundry being on
board was sufficient. The train began to gain time and that afternoon
they steamed Into A— three minutes
ahead of time.

Political Equality
In view of the extraordinary interest being manifested, not onl\

pirtictilarly in this DotnimW, in
the now vital question of woman
tuff 'ge, and especially in view of
tha' facts tbat Premier Borden has
ctiiasa tiled to red ive a deputation of
Cunt'liiin women tm this subject,
and t'iat the newspapers of every
ei .I i   i ileal opinion are  open-
gressive step taken hy the goyern
ment in tbe new University Act—
the first, I believe, in tbe history of
Canada'to provide expressly for.
absolute equality of scope and privilege between women and men in
every department of university life,
even as regards the appointment of
officials, from the highest downwards.
The men showing such liberality
of mind, such foresight, judgment
and courage, are not likely to delay
to carry the principle it embodies In
its logical, conclusion, or to deny (o
their countrywomen that recngni
lion of citizenship, and the key to its
effective use, wbich they accord to
any European immigrant when he
has been in the country the stipu
lated time and has taken the oath ot
•illegiance—(however fur removed
his traditions and ideals of life, social and political, from Canadian
standard)—who has happened to be

Belief Growing That Man Should be
Why is It that we neglect to use
the felt hand so much?
Among English-speaking people 9?
cut ot every 100 are right-handed
when they reach maturity. Out of
every 100 such persons 17 are born
right-handed, three are born left-handed and the remaining 80 are born
without preference as to either hand.
Eighty are Influenced - to become
strongly right-handed during early
No great asset in the world la so
neglected -aB the average left hand.
Formerly ull the world was ambidextrous. ?rlmltlve man had no preference which hand he used. And In
various parts of the world efforts aro
now bolng made to revive the use of
'he left hand.
Japan haB for many years been
teaching two-handedness to the men
of Its army and ln its Public schools.
The German Oovernment Is following
Japan's example. Sir Robert Baden-
Powell, hero ot the Siege of Mate-
king and founder of the Boy Scouts,
does not consider a man a well-trained soldier unless he can mount equally well on either side of .his horse, use
the sword, revolver and lance equally
well with both hands.
Guarding a Royal Train
Few people know that the passage
ot a Royal train Is guarded almost
every yard of the way, be the Journey of the Sovereign short or long.
Many people laugh when they read

r'a where the Czar travels; but the
same thing practically occurs in England, only without the ostentatious
display of uniforms. The linepver
whicli the Royal train ls to pass is
quite as effectively guarded, though

Blurred and exhausted condition of

Mrs. George Brtidsiiaw, Cosy Nook.
Harlowe, Out., writes:—"I am glad
to state lhat 1 received benefits from
Dr. Chase's Nerve Fcod which I failed to get any place else.. I was

I Buffered untold agonies from nervous sick headaches, dizziness, antl

many kinds of patent medicines, and
got no help, and tried every now doctor that came along, but all tailed to

so many complaints there was not

Black Fox Farming
There it in Prince Edward Island a
new development which is attracting
great attention In the shape of raising fur-bet.r!ng animals. It has been
proved that the climate of the province is particularly suitable for the
breeding vt black foxes, and a number ot farmers have embarked in the
Industry v/lth the most profitable results. The fur ot the black fox, owing to Its rarity, has become exceedingly valuable, and the Commissioner of Agriculture for Prince Edward
Island states that a pair of live foxes
were sold recently for (25,000 and another pair for over (20,000. The
price of this Spring's pups was over
$10,000 a (air and $5,000 a pair, while
a cash deposit varying from 10 to
25 per cent la being paid for fox
cubs that are due to be born In the
Spring of 1913. Black fox farming
as lt Is called, does not entail any
considerable expense, the ranches consisting usually of an acre Of ground
with a steel wire enclosure about 50
feet square for two pairs, containing
llttlo houses for the animals.  ■

Pleasant Manners Frequently Accompany the Moat Crooked of Minds.
That the modern burglar is liy nn
means the uncouth, ill-mannered type
of person that Dickens pictured Dill
Sykes to be is evidenced by tlte extraordinary acts ol politeness lhat some
criminals perform in the course nl
their nefarious work. The oilier day,
for instance, a notorious pickpocket
in Paris robbed a music hall singer
ot her handbag, and sent her a neat-
ly*worded letter ol apology the next
A gentleman whose pocket was picked ot a purse containing money ami

only required the money that had
been in the purse, and advising the
owner of the latter article to he more
careful of his valuables in future.
Some burglars who stolo several
hundreds of dollars' worth of Jeweller;* from a jeweller's shop, situated
in a large country town, Ieit behind
them a ten-cent piece, and a note
which ran as (ollows: "We are sorry
we had to damage your window in
getting in. Here is the money to pay
for the repair." -Needless t'l say, it
cost much more than ten cents tu repair the broken window, and the loss
of even one ring would have heen
more to the jeweller than a smashed
window; but the criminal kink in the
burglars' nature did not enable Ihem
to realize this* and their one thought
on departing was liow they could be
polite to their victim.
The innate chivalry of one burglar
once induced him to leave a wealthy
man's house without stealing as much
as a cent. One night, during the
absence ol tho master of the liousa,
his wife was awakened by hearing
footsteps in the hall. On going out to
see who it was, she was confronted
by a desperate-looking man, who held
a revolver pointed towards Iter, and
said: "Make no-noise, or you will
meet with harm.   Are you alone'r"
The frightened lady replied lhat she
was nlone, with the exception of her
two little children, who were then
fast asleep, and she gave tlle burglar
permission to walk off with whatever
lie pleased, provided that he would
not wake the little ones 'olid thus
frighten them.
Something, perhaps the remembrance of his own childhood's days,
seemed to touch the man's heart.
"All right," lie replied, "I wouldn't
frighten the kiddies for th* world."

A lionseowner w.ss recently much

favorite dog, which had been in the
habit of guarding his premises. Tlte
next day, however, he was amazed to
find that another dog of the same size
and breed was occupying the kennel.
A letter was tied round its neck,
which stated that: " are very sorry that they killed your dog. They
