Timely Circular iuued by
the Provincial Department
of Agriculture
(By R.  M. Winslow,   B.6.A.,   Provincial Horticulturist)
Tbe favorable weather wbich has
nccuired throughout the blooming
season in all the fruit districts of the
province bas favored tbe setting of a
very large percentage of tbe blossoms. Tbere are very few trees which
will not have all.the fruit they can
carry, and probably the majority of
them will have more than tbey can
carry witb profit. This brings up
tbe question of the thinning of fruit,
a practice well regnized in the Stales
to the south of us, but not yet gen
e ally understood throughout British
Columbia. A i iwussion of the meth
ods aud results of thinning is at the
present time very much in oid r,
because tbe work must be undertaken in the very near future.
How' much   fruit sbould
__^_^__^__^^^^^^. a Ute
In discussing the question of thin
ning, we admit that a tree may set
more fruit than it can p issibly bring
to perfection, as the fruit grower understands perfection. Nature care
nothing for the fruit, except as an aid
to produce seed; the orchardist cares
nothing for seeds except as they are
necessary for the production oi fruit.
We wish each tree to carry all tbe
fruit t can bring to commercial perfection, and' no more.
At tbe same time the tree must
make new vegetative growth consistent with its age and the variety.
The third requisite is that it
should also form enough fruit spurs
for a similar crop in the following
year. Tbis ideal is the foundation
of our orchard practice.
When a tree is fulfilling these
three requirements it is performing
ita maximum duty to the owner. If
it falls short ot any one of tbem, he
is not getting his maximum of profit,
either immediate or prospective,
from it.
How does thinning help!
The removal of some of the fruit
at an early stage in its growth helps
materially towards securing the
.maximum duty of the tree in certain
definite ways:
(1) The average size of the fruit
left on the trees ia increased; this is
the most obvious result of thinning.
Trees overburdened with fruit pro
duce a greater percentage of No. 2
apples. Tbe increase in aise of the
remainder, after the first or second
pickings of Bartlett pears is made, is
a striking instance of the increase in
size when the number of fruits ia reduced.
(2) Tbe fruit borne is more uni
form in aize and shape. On the
overloaded tree there is much variation in size, and, especially where
two or more fruits remain on a spur,
they are variable in size as well.
The fruits from the aide blossoms of
the cluster are in .many varieties
much different from those from the
center blossom, usually being flatter
in abape and having a considerably
longer stem. Uniformity in size and
abape ia an important essential of
commercial perfection.
(3) The color ia materially bet
tered, more uniform, and conies
earlier. Tbe remarkable increase in
color which occurs when a first picking is made from heavily vearing
trees or even ihe winter varieties,
such as Jonathan and Wagener, furnishes striking confirmation of this
point. While color seems largely
related to sunshine, it is a well-
known fact that ou a heavily loaded tree the fruit has less color, which
iB less evenly distributed and more
slowly acquired.
(4) Thinning improves the quality. This is especially tbe case where
soil is deficient in moisture or plant
(5) Tbe fruit ia freer of diseases
and insect pests, beiause wormy apples, limb-bruised or diseased fruit
of any kind, can be removed at thinning time. On plume and peaches
in moist regions, fruits thinned so
lhat no two touch when luily grown
are much freer of brown rot.
(6) The removal of misshapen
fruit lowers the percentage of low
grade fruit.
(7) Thinning prevents premature
dropping, A familiar instance is
that of the Mcintosh Red, which is
especially liable to drop where two
fruits are left on one spur. Premature dropping is quite largely due to
the inability of the tree to supply
moisture to an excessive crop.
(8) Tbe load of fruit is more evenly distributed, and tbia ia a very
important feature in •preventmjptire
breaking down of trees.
i9) Tbe cost of picking is reduced
considerably, and the labor of picking is divided more evenly over the
season. This is an import tut advantage where the supply of labor is
deficient in picking time. Costs of
grading and packing are also much
(10) Libs fertility is remoxed from
the soil. A ton of apples take up
approximately 1.2 lb. of nitrogen,
1.6 1b. of potash, and 0 ?■ Ib. of phos
phoric acid A ton of pears removes
the same amount uf nitrogen and
about twice as much of the otber
elements. The seeds take the great
bulk of these amounts, the pulp of
the fruit taking hut a small portion.
As the number of seeds is roughly
in proportion to the number of apples, and not to tbeir size, the removal of fruits leaves a mucb great'
er supply of plant food for the bal<
ance of the crop, ror the growth of
lho trees, and in tbe soil.
(11) The tree ia less liable to win
ter injury. The ripening of the heavy
crop drains the vitality of tha tree,
so leaving it in poor shape to withstand the winter. Trees bearing
moderate crops for which tbere ii an
adequate supply of plant food and
adequate moisture have sufficient
vitality to ripen the crop, and to
ripen the fruit beds and spurs as
(12) One of the most important
results of thinning is that tbe trees
will bear a larger and more uniform
crop ibe following year. The tendency   toward   biennial   bearing is
J materially reduced, much depending in this, boweyer, on tbe variety.
For various reasons, then, thinning helps materially to secure tbe
maximum duty from the tree.
Wben to Thin.—As soon as the
crop can be determined and the
Bupply of labor permits, thinning
should be commenced. Start with
tbose   varieties   whicb   are  most

/' RAND FORKS is to be a terminal and divisional point on the Canadian Pacific rail-
*•* way and the Kettle Valley line. This was finally decided thin afternoon, when th«
city council unanimously adopted an agreement between the city and the railwftycompan.es,
arrived at after many conferences and a great deal of correspondence, covering a period ot
over a month, Mayor Gaw, the city council and a citizens' committee consisting of
ex-Mayors Fred Clark and G. M. Fripp, acting for the city, President G. J. Bury,
Western Superintendent F. W. Peters, District Superintendent W. 0. Miller and Acting
Superintendent C. A. Cotterell, for the Canadian Pacific railway, and President J. J. Warren for the Kettle Valley line.
The Canadian Pacific Railway company and the Kettle Valley line agree with the city
of Grand Forks that they will make the said city a joint terminal and divisional point for
each of .said parties' railways; that they will commence construction forthwith at some point
within the corporate limits of the said city of a roundhouse of at least ten-stall capacity, a
machine shop and all other plant and buildings necessary for the maintenance of said roundhouse and machine shops, and will maintain the same for a period of ten years; to establish
a joint passenger station on the site where the station of the Kottle Valley line now stands,
on Third street, and agree to make all such additions thereto as may be necessary to care
for al) business done thereat when completed; to maintain said joint station as such on
the site above mentioned for a period of ten years; to run their passenger trains over that
portion of the railway of tlie Kettle Valley line lying within the corporate limits of the saitl
city for a period of ten years; to establish and maintain for a period of ten years from the
date hereof an industrial spur at a place on their line of railway agreeable to the city,
but such spur shall be located not more than a,quarter of a mile from the joint station of thc
railway companies on Third street.
In consideration whereof the city of Grand Forks agrees with the railway companies as
follows: To exempt from all taxation which a municipal corporation has power to exempt
from, all property, both real and personal, belonging to the railway companies, used or held
to be used for railway purposes, situate within the corporate limits of said city, for a period
of ten years; to supply from the municipal waterworks system to the railway companies
two hundred thousand gallons of water per day for a period of ten years at the rate of
$50 per month; to supply, or cause to be Supplied, to the railway companies electric light
not to exceed two thousand candlepovver for a period of ten years for a flat rate of $35 per
month; to supply electric power, for a period of ten years, to the railway companies, at the
transformer station, near the Granby smelter, at a maximum rate of one cent per kilowatt
hour; to consent to the extension of the present siding on Third street ofthe Kettle Valley
line, from a point north of Winnipeg avenue to a point on Third street near the trestle approach to the bridge of the said line crossing the Kettle river; to consent to an extension of
the present siding of the Kettle Valley line, running east of the station of the said line,
northerly across Winnipeg avenue and along Third street to a junction with the main line of
the said railway at a point south of the south boundary of Victoria avenue, all such extensions to be built to grade; to donate free of cost to the said railway companies lot number
21, in block 12, plan 23, in said city of Grand Forks, free of incumbrance; to donate free of
cost and free of incumbrance to every employee of the Canadian Pacific Railway company
who on the date hereof is owner of a house and lot in Eholt, a lot situate in said city of
Grand Forks and not more than one-half mile from the station of theCanadian Pacilic railway, each such lot not to be less than thirty feet frontage by a hundred feet deep; to convey
by deed to the said railway companies that portion of Third street lying between Bridge
street and Winnipeg avenue. As a further consideratfon, the city agrees with the Kettle
Valley line that the time stipulated for the completion of the Nortli Fork line of the railway
in the agreement dated March 7, 1906, between the city of Grand Forks and the Kettle
Valley Railway, shall be extended until the traffic conditions warrant further construction
in that .portion of the province where said line runs, and the said railway company agrees
to prosecute further construction of said line so soon as traffic conditions warrant further
construction, and the city agrees that its proper officers will join with the said railway company in a petition to the government of the province of British Columbia for legislation
amending chapter 20, ofthe statutes of the province of British Columbia for the year 1010,
providing that the said railway company prosecute further construction of said line subject
to the terms of this agreement.
The agreement will be submitted to the ratepayers for their approval as soon as a bylaw embodying the various clauses can be adopted by the city council. To do this will prob-'
ably require a couple of weeks' time.
The Canadian Pacific Railway company has $200,000 available to commence work on
the improvements in this city. Work on a ten-stall brick roundhouse will lie started at
once, and the erection of the machine shops and increasing of trackage facilities will follow
as soou as possible.
The Canadian Pacific passenger trains will probably commence to run tbrough the city
immediately after the agreement has been ratified by the ratepayers. The Eholt employees
of the company who are to be donated free lots will probably be located in the vicinity of
Winnipeg avenue and Donald street.

Harvesting In April.
A news item that ia unusual even
fur this big country ot varied climate and lines ol work was sent out
from High River, Alta., early in April.
It ran as follows:
Threshing is again under way in
tho High River district, although
progress so far is not very satisfactory owing to the fields being too soft
to move the heavy threshing outfits.
The general opinion is that grain has
wintered better than expected.
The unusual spectacle of harvesting
a crop in April is seen, in this district, where several farmers are mw
engaged in cutting oats. The grain Is
coming out in fairly good shape. The
■mall acreage ready for spring crops
is resulting in many power plowing
outfits being bought, several being
recently unloaded here.

First Literary Work.
Arthur Iteming is known to a good
many readers, not only as an illustrator, but as a writer — ot magazine
stories and one book. The book
"Spirit Lake." which is all a story
about the Ojibways towards Hudson
Bay, has behind it a story, and a good
lt was while he was wintering with
Wm. Henry Howe, the cattle painter
at Ilronxville, N.Y., that Heming
conceived tile notion tha', lie would
like to write the story of how the
Ojibways put in their queer, weird
lives from one winter tu the next
This, of course, would mean a fresh

The Outlook. Not knowing the name
of the art editor or the heads of any
departments, he asked the elevator
man. Introducing himself to the head
of the art department, he told him
what he intended to do.
'But what do you expect us to do?"
was the question.
"Write me an advance check for a
thousand dollars, give me the serial
rights on my stuff and I'll go north
and get you material lor the hook.'
This radical suggestion was conveyed to the chiel, who, after listening to
the much-in-earnest delivery of the
Canadain artist, took him at his word,
wrote the check and gave him the
From there Heming went to another magazine which had already hand
led a series of his drawings 'or Fras
er's "Sa'zada Tales." To the editor
of that he proposed to sell the serial
rights of the aame thing. Tlie -offer
was accepted. Immediately Heming
hied himself to an outfitter's emporium and made a deal for a complete
camp outfit ol most elegant proportions including everything a man can
possibly lug into the wilderness and
use to advantage. At another store
he got a Mauser rifle and a hundred
rounds of ammunition.
Thus equipped, the trailsinan hit
out for the far north. He was gone
all winter. He got his material. He
came back to civilization, and just
before he Btarted for England to study
with Brangwyn he conceived the idea
of throwing the whole thing into the
form of short stories which could be
combined to make the. book.
Hence eame the book "Spirit Lake,
which was made nearly twenty years
after Heming had gone his first snow-
shoe trip in the north from Mattawa
to Temiskaming; and he sold the
serial rights of "Spirit Lake" in four
separate countries, England, France,
the United States and Canada.
So he is a walking and enthusiastic
encyclopaedia of the life on the uu-
railroaded edges of the north. He
has studied most ol the Indian tribes
that pitch their camps between Montreal .and Alaska; from the Sarcees
down in the cow-hills to the Lochieux
up the Peel in the Yukon. He knows
the joys of the bull moose and the
sorrows of the whale. He has burrowed after little game and gone
stalking alter the big. From the fur
of a mink or.the mound of a musk-
rat to tba blubber ol a bull whale
just oil the harpoon is the zoological
range ol his acquaintance with northern animals. He has bossed mining
camps -and come down with tlie river-
drivers. And with whatsoever sort
ol crew he hit the river or the trail
he took off his coat and his collar
and put on his jeans and his blanket
coat or his moccasins and got down to
the brass tacks of genuine hard labor.

With the exception of antelope and
musk-ox, British Columbia has every
species of big game that exists ou
tlie continent; even the rarest nf them
being lound in fair quantities. In
addition, there arc wild (owl and
game birds ol various species, some
native and others acclimatized, tliat

ford the finest trout and salmon fishing in tlle world. It is probable that
there are more moose to the square
mile in the Canadian Rockies than
in any other part of the continent,
and every year thoir numbers seem
to increase. So Iar, the country has
never been hunted except by a few
prospectors. Whether tlu horns attain the large size of the Cassier
moose has yet to be determined, but
some very fine heads have been seen.

Poor Old Mother,
Ia the correspondence column ot a
contemporary there recently appeared
a question by a son-in-law with whom
his wife's mother had been living as
to whether other members of the family (three sons) who were said to be
able though unwilling,' could be compelled to bear a portion of the expense
of the mother's maintenances. She
had been living with one ot the sons,
and the brother-in-law had been asked
lf she could be boarded In lye house so
that the daughter might look after her
This waB agreed to, but the board money waa not paid, and after eighteen
months of squabbling the question was
aaked. The answer waB diplomatic,
namely, lhat the matter was one
which required most judicious hanil-
llng, and that a solicitor should be consulted. Had the person ln charge of
the question column known of the Can-
adnan Government Annuities System,
the wisest thing he could have done
would have been to recommend the
purchase of a Government Annuity.
At. her age (75) an annuity of $300
(75 dollars every three months) payable as long as she might live, could
have been purchased for $1'J92. The
mother could then have lived happily
with her daughter for the remainder
have regarded the mother's presence
ln the home, a boon rather than a
burden, and the family ties -would
have remained unbroken. But
best of all, the comfort and happiness of the dear old mother, who
had nursed them in their Infancy,
had, perhaps, spent many a sleepless
night lu anxious attendance upon
thorn whom the "Oread Messenger"
waa hovering near, ready to snatch
them away from her, and who had
guided their young footsteps ln the
Btralght and narrow path—priceless
services—would hen have been assured for all time. Happily in Canada
cases of this kind are few, and they
will be still fewer In the years to come
lf the boys and girls of today can
only be Induced to pay into the Annuities System a few cents each week.
For example, a young man of 20 by
paying In 50 cents a week until he is
60 may purchase an Annuity of $352.-
76; and a young woman starting at
same age, and paying a like amount
for the aame period, could secure an
Annuity of $311.72, which, owing to
her longevity belug superior, is somewhat less than be would receive. I'he
age of 60 to a young man or woma : nt
20 may seem a long way off: but. it
may tntereat Litem to know tliat, according to mortality expe"|en.v, nf
In.OOO of ell hev sex starting at 20 considerably more than 50 per ceut. will
b still living even nt 65. There Is
more then an even chance Hint you
v ill be cite of tie 5,000.
Information as to the eost oi nn
iii'ii r.iy at any -co may bo secured on
application to the poatmris c", or to
the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa, to whom your letter may bc sent
without postage.
Putting It te werk.
When the train stopped at the little southern station the northern tourist sauntered out on a plattong, says
the Housekeeper.  Under a scrub oak
stood a lean   animal   with  scraggly
bristles.    The tourist waa Interested.
"What do you call that?" he Inquired
of a lanky native.
"Razorback hawg."
Well, what   is he   doing  rubbing
against that tree?"
He's stropping himself, mister, jest
stropping himself."

but the band ls playing that."

"All right, my dear,' responded tho

"Did you say the fishing around here

Yep.    The feller that catches one

"Yes, and so does my husband."
"How charming! What did he say?"
"He remarked last night that when

Raw, Damp Weather Starts the Pain,
bqt the Trouble Lies In the Blood.
Spring weather is bad for rheuma
tic sufferers. The changes from
mild ito cold, the raw, damp winds
start the aches and twinges, or ln the
more extreme cases, the lorttiera of
lhe trouble going. But lt must be
borne in mind that it Is uot the weather that causes rheumatism- The
trouble is rooted in the blood—the
changeable weather merely starts
the pains. The only way to reach
the trouble and to cure lt ls through
the blood. The poisonous rheumatic acids must be driven out. Liniments and rubbing may give temporary relief, but cannot possibly cure
the trouble. The sufferer Is only
wasting time and money with this
kind of treatment and all the time the
trouble is becoming more deeply root
ed—harder to cure. There is just
oue speedy cure for rheumatism—Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. They act directly on the Impure, acid-tainted
blood. They purify and strengthen
it and thus loot out the cause of the
rheumatism. Here Is strong proof of
the above statements. Mra Robt.
liitffinan. Midland, Ont, says; "About
three years ago my grandson, Robert
Liiffmau. was attacked with inflammatory rheumatism, lie became so
bad he could ouly walk when someone
helped him about. One arm he had
,td carry in a sling, and we felt sure
he would be a cripple for life. The
trouble also affected his heart. The
doctor said his blood was turning to
water and we had llttlo hope for hla
recovery. The medicine the doctor
gave him did not do more than soothe
the pain a little, then he would be as
bad as ever. On .a former occasion
Dr. Williams' Pink rills had cured my
daughter of rheumatism, and we finally decided to try them In Robert's
case. Alter thc use of three or four
boxes there was a alight Improvement
and he continued taking the Pills until he had used 12 boxes when the
trouble had completely disappeared,
and ho has not beeu affected with It

advanced. Generally, apples, pears
and peaches are thinned when about
tbe size of a hickory nut, and tbe
thinning should be completed before
tbey are more than double that sjze.
Un the various plums tbe work
should be commenced as soon as possible after the dropping, familiarly
known aa the "June drop," is over.
Apricots, cherries and crah apples
are not usually thinned by hand,
because tbe crop which tbey are to
bear is a reasonably certain quantity, and can be coutrolled to a greater extent tban in the larger fruits by
proper pruning. The Italian prune
and the peach plum are not usutlly
thinned, because normally the set ol
fruit of these varieties is not great
enough to warrant the expenditure.
How to Thin.—To set rules for
thinning is even more difficult than
to Bet rules for pruning. Tbe fruit
grower must determine for himself
just bow much crop the tree will be
able to corry. Much depends on the
variety, the age of the tree, its vitality, the soil, cultivation, climate,
and district. Under equal conditions
the Winesap may be thinned to,
say, 5 inches, where the Jonathan
would be thinned to fi or 7, and tbe
Northern Spy to 8. In climates
sucb as that of Vancouver island,
where no irrigation is available, and
the rainfall averages about half an
inch per month during the summer
.season, or one fifth that of tbe aver
age Ontario district, all varieties are
thinned to a greater distance than in
disrricta of greater rainfall or where
irrigation is available. In this district it is advisoble to tbin many
crops, tbe whole of which could be
carried to advantage under other
conditions. Unhealthy or diseased
trees should not be expected to grow
as great a load aa those in perfect
health, while trees making extensive
growth may very well be allowed lo
carry mucb more than average trees
under the same conditions.
By one rule which is practised to
some extent, the grower sizes up all
the conditions and determines how
many boxes of fruit the tree should
carry. Itis a small matter then to
determine how many fruits there
should be left on the tree.
Another rule wbich might be
taken in connection with the pre*
vious one is to thin plums to about
2.2J or 3 inches; peaches, 4 to 8,
depending on tbe earliness of the
variety; pears and apples, 5 to 7
inches apart. Id thinning pears
and apples, it is only with
early varieties that more than
one should be left on any fruit spur,
and witb these early varieties part
of the crop may be removed in one
picking and the balance later. With
winter varieties of apples it is a good
rule to leave fruit only on each alternate spur, to encourage annual
bearing. On slender twigs and on

(where many varieties bear heavily
in British Columbia) it is well to
thin to a greater distance than on
strong fruit spurs in the body of tbe
tree. On tbe outside twigs and
shoots the fruit will average smaller
than on the stouter branches; they
are unable to grow a close crop of
fruit to perfection.
A very important point, well illustrated by the Yellow Newtown
apple, is that the centre apple of the
cluster, and not one of the side apples, sbould remain. The center
blossom of Ihe cluster comes out
first; its stem iB usually shorter and
stockier than those of the outside
blossoms, and at the time of thin
ning tbe apple is usually much
larger thnn the others and on a
shorter stem The centre apple
usually hangs better to the tree, is
the typical apple of tha- variety, is
less liable to variation in shaipe, anil
having a shorter stem is better for
packing and for appearance sake.
Fruit spurs vary greaty in size
and vitality; the best spurs bear the
best apples; the weaker spurs should
he given a chance to develop into
strong ones hefore next year's crop.
ln the production of fancy fruit,
thinning pays, and pays well. It
means much in the assurance of
crops of only high cless fruit It is
not likely to be of value unless the
orchard is right in the matters of
variety, fertility, cultivation, pruning, and spraying; it is not likelv
to give good returns unless the high
rlass article produced is properly
packed itnd marketed by business
like methods Thinning is an essential feature of the new orchard
Present indications are that this
year will see the largest crop of
Wee fruits British Columbia has yet
had. Throughout the province
from Vancouver island to the Koote
nays, the apple, prune, peach, pear
and plum trees bave been full of>
blossoms, and there has been no
loss from frost or unfavorable
weather, most of the trees are certain to have a heavy load of fruit,
of which very much will be undersized unless thinning is practised,
It is hoped that fruit growers will
grasp the situation rightly. The
prices for undersized fruit are never
very remunerative. It is always the
good, large, perfect fruits that bring
paying.    This year the difference in
price between fancy and low-grade
fruit will be emphasized. Large
yields of fruit are promised in Ontario, in tbe Middle States.Colorado,
California, Montana, Idaho, Oregon
and Washington, as well as in Bri -
ish Columbia. The Northwestern
States, in fact, have the bumper crop
of their history; and they look to
the Canadian prairies to buy a great
deal of it, as times are good in Canada, while money is scarce in the
United States. Tbis means that
there will be plenty of poor fruit for
sale in our markets without any
from British Columbia, and the returns fur this class of fruit are bound
to be low, Neither do the canneries
want small fruit; tbere is nu money
in pie-peaches for any one. Every
grower should resolve that he will
not glow any peaches smaller than
'*90's.-" Any shipper knows that
there will lie no market for the small
stuff, and lhat even in the earliest
ittrieties we can grow, returns will
be uusatistactoiy lor the small
giudea. Fortunately there is uo reason why any grower should have
any percentage of tbe small sizes to
Itis unlikely that any fruitgrower
will thin too much; it is quite certain that most growers will not thin
enough. While the average man may
know ubout thinning, he is short
the nerve necessary to carry it out.
Most of the growers of Hritish Columbia huve not yel hud enough ex
peiience lo realize the difference iu
profits oi) large and small sizes.
Tliose men who see the situation
clearly and *«'hi> recognize the fun

'PHK Family Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to be
| the greatest and best family and farm paper nn the continent, bas on
iniinv occasions given its readers most delightful premium picture,
hut this season they have secured what is beyond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper reader*. It is entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation.
"Laddie,'! a collie dog, famous for his beauty ami gentleness, winners
of many prizes at dog snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
has heen stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar hark brings his little mistress, Murjorie, to the door and
Bbe throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
wbich bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
wbine. which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
tbe beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walls ol any home.
The picture is by tbe celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.

inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Star for 1912.

Canadian Paciflo Railway Co. to Run
Observation Cars on Austrian
State Railways.
The announcement that the Canadian Pacific Railway Co. will this
summer begin to run a series of
Observation Car Services on the
Austrian State Railways through the
Tyrol, marks an epoch in the growth
of the Importance ot Canada ln the
old world. Under a contract with the
Austrian State Railways, the Canadian Paciflo has arranged to build
several observation cars In Austria on
Canadian Pacific plans. The design
ls that of Mr. Vaughan, head of the
C. P. K. AnguB shops at Montreal,
who has made a personal visit lo
Austria to study local conditions.
They will differ slightly from the
type as used In Canada, and each
car will have platforms at both ends.
The cars will be the longest four-
axle cars ln Europe. They will have
a very spacious interior and will
seat thirty-two passengers. There
will be accomodation for a typist,
whose services will be at the disposal
of the passengers; and an up-to-date
library with all the latest magazines,
Just as on the ('. P. It. transcontinental trains, will be among the
features of the cars.
Both Austria aud the Canadian
Pacilic Rsilway will beneflt from the
consolidation of the new scheme.
The attention of vast numbers of
travelling Canadians and Americans
will be diverted from other parts of
Europe to Austria, hot only to see
that Interesting country, but to learn
how these Canadian Pacific observation cars fulfil their mission Tliere
will be three observation Borvices to
begin with. By arrangement with
the Swiss government, thn first" nf
these will run between Zurich and
Innsbruck over the Arlberg route via
I-andeck. The second will be between
Innsbruck and Vienna via Zell-aui-
Zee and Salzburg. The third will be
from Salzburg to Trieste over thc
Tauern and Karawanken Railways
by way of Badgasteln, Vlllach, Veldes
aud the Valley of the laonzo. This
last is a new route only recently
completed by the Austrian Government, which has spent Immense
sums of money to provide a short
cut from the north to Trieste, Its
greatest seaport.
The Austrian State Railway ls particularly well favored ln the country
It feeds as, regards scenery, aiid seen
as it will bo under the most favorable auspices in these new ('. P. R.
observation cars, the beauty of the
land will be a most interesting part
of auy European tour.

THERE has been an awful row
st our skyscraper, and the demure stenographer, who will
from this on be referred to as
D. S. to save space, ls to blame for It.
She came, she saw, and she scooted,
Seven tenants moved out In a day,

her age was sweet nineteen. She
came In answer to nu nd. Inserled In
the papers by old Ur. Jason, the Nevada borax agent He wanted a stenographer. Ue dldu't exactly sny In
the ad. that she must lie young and
beautiful, but lt read that way between the lines.
He dldu't say lhat. he was a widower sixty-lire years old, with a heart

seeking lo earn their own living, but
you got this part of lt when you looked luto his benign countenance. He
curried n gentle and tender expression, and he warranted his borax to
have the same.
Shy Young Thin j I
Miss D. 8. selected my ergo lo rid*
np In at her first csll to see about'the
place. She fluttered. Bhe trembled.
She kept ber eyes on ber toes. I tried
to flirt with her as wo ascended to
Ihe sixteenth floor, but tbe poor Innocent tblng put up her Up like a frightened baby. 1 am a hardened elevator
boy. and 1 number my mashes by the
autumn leaves skating around, but In
this com my conscience pricked me.
I guided her lo Mr. Jason's door and
told her thnt If nny son of a gun
around that coop dared look cross eyed
at her he would have to fight me to a
finish. Just one grateful glance' from
tbose eyes and she wns gone.
Did old Mr. Jason employ Miss D.
8.? Why. be rose up and fell over his
feet as soon as sbe poked her head Into
lhe room. He hustled up three chairs
for her use, handed ber a fan nnd tben
kept swallowing at the lump In his
throat for Ave mluutos before he could
apeak. Employ ber? Why, be set her
salary at $10 per week as soon ns sbe
said lhat she was an orphan; and as
Moon as she mentioned that she hoped
ho would be a guardian at well as em-
player he raised It to $20.
I Atp Put Wise.
Two hours nfter Miss Demure had
Karted In to lake down borax dictation old Mr. Jason rode up and down
In my cage to get a chance to say*.
"Sammls, here's a dollar for you."
"Thanks, sir."
"A wonderful coincidence has occurred."
' "They ire always occurring around

"But this li something eltogether unbooked for. Tou saw lhe young tody

"Uld It strike you, Bsmmls, (bat I here

"Not a strike, sir."
"Here's another dollar, Bammts.
Think again."
"Why, now lhat I come lo think of
tt I believe there ls a resemblance, a
most striking resemblance. Yes, I re-
kember of wondering If she could be
your niece," ■
"That's right, 'Bsmmls, cultivate,
memory and It will pnt many a dollar
in your pocket.' Yes, I havo found out
that Miss Holllday is my niece. I don't
think thero can bo any mistake.",
"Tho strawberry mark ought to

"It has faded somewhat, but lt 1*

"Yes, sir." i.ai
Wonderful Coincidence.
. "I advertise for a stenographer, and
my own niece, wbom I hare not aeen
since she left the cradle, applies for
the position!"
"Very curious, sir. It's so curious
that a lot of these old guys around
here won't believe lt."
"I know It, Bsmmls, I know lt, aud
that's why I am here to talk to you.
They must toe made to believe lt. Relationship ls a sacred thing nnd mnst
not be scoffed at. I find I have SO
cents here In change."
"Thanks, sir.  Every flfty helps me
out on that mortgage,   i think I better tell everybody around tho building
that your niece Is with you."
"It might be well, Sammls."
"And that there aro to be no Introductions!"
"Not a one."
"And no bouquets or lunches!'
"Sammls, you grow better and better."
"But should I myself wish to present a bouquet or Invite Miss Niece to
"I wouldn't If I were you, Sammls.
You are young and Impressionable,
and It might do you an injury for life.
If I were yon I'd keep right on smoking cigarette's and playing the ponies

Indignation Orows.
In two dnys It became known from
the ground floor to tbe garret that old
Mr. Jason had an liourl of a stenographer, snd twenty old geezers waited
to ride up and down with her. Tbey
came to me- with tbelr bouquets and
dollars, bnt I was loyal. They smug,
gled notes under the door, but tbey
were not answered. 1 told all Inquirers thst D. 8. was surely Mr. Jason's
niece, but nobody would believe it.
They simply Isughed and winked, lt
was Mr. Hsrker, tho enrsaparllla ton
le man, who came to me and said:
"Sammls. we are thinking some of
calling an Indignation meeting to denounce that old reprobate of a Jason."
"What's he done?"
"We don't believe thnt girl ls bis
"Must be. Strawberry mark on her
left elbow."
"Then the old bog painted lt there
with a brush!"
"But wbnt's your particular kick?"
"Yesterday. 1 sent Iu a bouquet of
twelve American Beauty roses; cost
$1 apiece.   I went dead broke."
"I saw them down In the court an
hour later."
' "Yes; tbe old villain threw them
thero nnd tben sent me n note saying
tbat for a man eighty years old I
ought to be ashamed of myself. Bsmmls, do I look to be eighty years old?"
"Not a dny over forty," 1 says ss he
•Hns me $1.
"And he leys I'm eighty! Why, I'll
break his old neck!"
The Crssh Comes.
And other men came for a talk, and
after awhile everybody was ag'ln everybody else aud the whole crowd
down on old Jason. Tbe D. 8. comes
to me In her quiet, shy way and strikes
me for a Ave spot It was pay day,
and I bad It It's to give to a family

"Certainly, my dear-glad to oblige.
What dny will It ho convenient, for
you to go out to lunch with me?"
None of (hem ever got out wltb her
or anywhere near It, and one day there

movers wanted to call blm names and
get their borrowed money back. He

A Qreat Painter Who Was Net Above
-  Earning an Honest Quartar.
Window Homer was a great painter
who had tbe unusual good fortune to
have bis merit appreciated early in life.
But no ono ever presumed less on a
.wide reputation. Affectation was s
.weakness from which his sense of humor saved bim.
In bis biography by Mr. W. H. Downs
ls printed tho story ot a New Tork
gentleman of wealth and artistic tastes
wbo made the Journey to Sjcarboro, Me.,
wbere Homer had his studio, to make
tbe artist's acquaintance.
On his arrival he found tbe studio
door locked; tbe owner was nowhere to
be seen. He wandered about the cliffs
for awhile until be met a man In a
rough old suit ot clothes, rubber boots
and a battered felt bat, who carried a
Ashpole. He accosted tho fisherman
'■'Soy, my mnn, lf yon can, tell me
where I ,cnn And Wlnslow Homer

"Where's your quarter?" said the
He banded lt over and was astounded to hear the quizzical Yankee fisherman say, "1 am Wlnslow Homer."
The sequel of this unusnal Introduction was tbat Homer took bis new acquaintance back to tbe studio, entertained him, and before be left sold him

The Standpatters
A pretty spectacle it is iu this Dominion to have the great mass of the
people misrepresented by a couple of
politicians. Is it too much to say that
many of our politicians have a higher
regard for otlice than for empire.
Some of Mr. Borden's cabinet asso
ciates, men of his own selection, have
denounced imperialism, and held up
alleged terrors if the Canadian people
mix in imperial affairs. The position
of Canada as she is represented today
by the Ottawa -government is fast
reaching the point where the people
must interfere. If Canada is tu remain
a member of the empire she must do
something. If all the loyalty talk ot
the politicians is mere blurt', it is web
the |ieodle should know it, and that
right early.— Winnipeg Tribune.
Back to Lhtralism
The peril of Nationalism and Ultra
iiiontikiiisiu is sending thinking men in
Quebec of both races back to Liberalism. The Eastern townships were
formerly almost exclusively English-
speaking,and there is still a large English population in that part of Quebec, For the first time in the history
of the province, at the recent election
every riding in the Eastern townships
returned a Liberal member to the
legislature—fourteen seats, and fair
teen Liberals —Toronto Globe.
