migration inspector at this port, and
K. B. McKeehan, United States immigration inspector at Marcus, last
Monday were successful in causing
the arrest of a Greek named Leoni-
daB Belegris, who is wanted for a
murder committed by him in Greece
in 1906. Friends of Belegris were
veiy anxious to get him across lbe

suspicions of the officers, and Mr.
McKeehan telegraphed a description
of tbe man to Washington, and
asked for instructions. Following
the receipt of a cipher dispatch from
Washington, Itjr. McKeehan arrested the Oreek. Belegris has since
confessed that he is the man want
ed, and was taken to Spokane ou

famous story of life in the Yukon,

on the eastern and midwestern circuits lsst season.
Competent critics hsve prononnced
'it a much better drama than its author's previous success, "The Spoilers," because its plot is equally interesting, and is unravelled with
liner skill. While all the gripping
episodes of the novel are retained,

on a Mission Out of the

Fred, Russell, proprietor of the
Russell hotel, returned from Spokane Wednesday afternoon. Mr.
Russell's mission to the metropolis
of the Inland Empire was sufficiently removed from the ordinary rut
to be classed among the unique happenings of the world. His mother
resides in tbat city. She 'owns a
pretty home there, and has considerable cash in the banks. At tbe
age of 70, so tbe story runs, Bbe was
seriously pondering over a second
matrimonial venture. The object of
her affections possesed naught of

To show what the Borden ministry can do with a $30,000,000 surplus left in the treasury by tbeir

intimated in tbe house that he intends to ask for a special vote to
pay for a private secretary for each
member of tbe bouse. The sum to
be asked for is $500 for each member. Tbe proposal should have met
with a storm of protest in ite incipience, but it cannot properly be attacked by the opposition until it
takes the form of a practical proposal. Members of the house now
receivt $2500 a year sessional allowance, free railway passes over every
transportation system in Canada and
travelling expenses to Ottawa for
one session a year. While many of
the members are worth many times
this Bum to the country, there is a
mucin larger number who are worth
nothing, and the proposal to add to
the emoluments and pickings of
such men in the sum of $500 a year
is only another example of tbt rule
of graft upon wbich the country has
again eutered.—Victoria Times.

Dairying In Syria
In the battle for existence, the dairyman in every part of the world has
ills troubles aB well as comforts, and
whether lt be under the shadow of a
great American city, with an outlet
bringing tho top price, or whether lt
is among the storm-swept mountains
of the Orient, business management,
attention to detail and steady, consistent work are required.
"In our country," a Syrian who Ib
thoroughly acquainted with agricultural conditions thero, tells us, "wc
have the dairy business reduced to a
system similar to this country, although our product brlngB only about
one-quarter aB much. Not only do we
produco butter and cheese, but also
Dutch cheose, and these products go
to the great cities of Western Asia.
Daraatlcus and Beirut are the No*
York and Chicago markets of Western
.Asia, while many of our products find
solo In France, Italy, Germany and
other European countries. Constantinople Is a good market, but wo consider It second to Damascus.
"Wo do not limit our production of
dairy products to the cow, but the
goat Is also pressed into service, instead of 'dual purpoBo' cattle, which
were spoken of in America, we can
nptly call our cattle "triple purpose
Btock*. A farmer will till IiIb soil with
hie cows, and when they outlive their
period of usefulness they aro butchered. The cow Is pressed into*6ervice
on tho farm, as the coat of horses Is
prohibitive; a horse can only be
owned by the nobility or tho wealthy,
and an average Arabian canrot be
purchased for less than $2,000.
Goats supplement the cow In the
production of butter and cheese. We
consider that goats test high, and one
of our ordinary goats, a goat that
could not hold down a station ln a
Canadian lodge room, would make the
owners of some of the high -testing
cows sit up. and take notice. The
coats are pastured on the mountains
In the mimmer, and as the winter an-
pronches the flock Is worked south-
warl toward tho lower lands and Hi"
Ben. Generally about five men accompany those goats, herding and
milklni. them. The men tnke turns
in making butter, or cheese, whichever It may be. the latter generally
being made by these itinerant dairymen.
Our dairymen do not have the advantages of agricultural colleges.
Journals and field meetings. They
have been schooled, however, in dairy
methods by the strenuous struggle for
existence, in which only tho fittest
survive. Our dairymen do not know
what thc test, meana, although In the
lower countries there are now being
developed cheese factories, creameries and skimming stations! and modern methods of agriculture are gaining a foothold, and our herdsmen supplemented careful breeding by elimination of the weak and unproductive."
According to the new edition of the
Encyclopaedia Britanulca, the word
"steak" is apparently derived trom
Icelandic "steik," used In the same
sense as tho English word, "whicli
meant properly roasted meat, from
stolkja, to roast; that is, placed on a
stick or peg of wood beforo the fire
(compare Swedish, stek; Danish,
stek, roast meat)."
The samo authority says: "A 'por-
terhouoe' steak Is a choice cut of
steak from the loin, so named, apparently, first In New York from a well
known 'porter house', and eating
house, where chops, steaks, etc., and
porter or stouts were served, at which
these steaks were a specialty.
"A steak grilled between two otlier
ateaktt which Is not served after the
cooking Is finished. Is also sometimes
called a 'porterhouse' steak."
Not. in these days of high cost meat
would such a practice as tho latter
he generally followed, however.
The Long African Forest
One of tho great natural treasures
of Africa Ib the Immense extratropl-
ca! forest that extends almost unbroken from the extreme Southern
ca-id along the Eastern highlands to
the equator.
Thore are gaps ln It,, and the trees
chango In kind somewhat with change
of lutltudo, but upon the whole It has
tho same character throughout. The
altitude above the sea changes regularly with decrease of latitude. Near
the cape the forest grows at sea-level;
In Natal and tho TranBvaal Its altitude Increases to 3,000, 4,000 and 6,000
feot; nud on approaching the equator
it riseB to 7,000, and finally to 10,000
feet. In the equatorial highlands the
growth Is very vigorous, and the for-
cut Is enriched with tho "pencil cedar"
of Abyssinia.

A Stable Warning
When having a look round a stable
when a number of horses are kept,
It becomes quite natural to bestow a
pat or caress on any equine which
may take the visitor's fancy: but this
Is a matter ln which care should be
used. Tho most harmless looking animals may prove to be really vicious
and resent attentions In a forcible
manner. In most big stables where
visitors are frequent. It will be noticed that certain ot the horse stalls
have pieces of straw rope attached to'
the posts. This Ib intended as a
warning that the occupant Is not of
an amiable disposition. Why the
warning does not take the form of a
notice which anyone might' read Is
rather Incomprehensible. Presumably
the prevailing sign Is a purely profes-
lonnl custom wilh those who have to
deal with horses.

Hunting th: Emu
The natives of Australia are ingenious. A black, on discovering emus
feeding on a plain, will cover his back
and head with an emu skin, allowing
It to hang down well on the Bide toward tho unsuspecting birds. In his
right hand he will carry, hidden by
the skin, a boomerang and one or two
throwtng-sticltB- or "waddles'" Then
his left arm will protrude beyond"tue
skin straight out to the elbow, and
the forearm will be bent up. with the
hand at right angles to it-thereby making a capital imitation of an emu's
head and"~neck.
Now and then this hand or head

An Englishman, whllo riding with
a companion across one of the vast
plains of Queensland, was passing a
ridge when, as his eyes cleared the
summit, he saw one of the very wild
blacks of the district walking quietly
along toward.a small scrub ln tlie middle of the open. The Britons pulled
up to see what the man would do. His
sharp eyes, however, soon detected
the white men. though their heads
only were visible to him, and he
dashed Into tho scrub.
Almost Immediately from the opposite side of the scrub darted out what
to tliem appeared an emu, driver, out
by the entrance of the black, so thoy
gave chase, but quickly discovered It
to be only thc black, acting emu, not
expecting that tho white men would
give chase to what was Ip those parts
a very common bird.

The Indispensable Camel
On his return from a trip across
the Sahara lo Lake Chad, M. F. Four-
cau said recently, "My trip Is the
burial ot tho trans-Saharan railway
Idea." Other explorers agree with him
in the opinion that a great railroad
across the desert cannot be financially successful. The railroad can succeed in comparatively rich countries
only, and Africa, they say, must always be poor ln comparison with
Europe. Railroads may be built near
the sea, nnd along some of the rivers,
but for Interior traffic, and the industrial development of the Inner
parts of the Saharan region, the ancient camel caravans must be depended on.

The Fooci Supply of Japan
The American Consular report to
harUT states that -the population of
Japan is increasing faster than the
Increased output of foodstuffs. The
population ot the country has been Increasing at the rate of 1.2 per annum
so that at this rate the country's population will exceed 71.000,(100 ln 1937.
The output of rice, tho principal food-
stuff of the Japanese, has also Increased of late years, but thc production of a normal year does not exceed
243,000,000 bushels, roughly, ahout 5
bushels per capita of the population
It Is evident that the supply of rice
will gradually fall short as the population Increases. There ts no prospect
of any great Increase In the production
of rice sufficient to meet the Increas
Ing demand In Japan, and It Is there
fore necessary tn look to the colonies
Formosa and Korea, for a sunnly tr
make good the deficit. The dislike ol
the Japanese to eat foreign-grown rlcr
Is also a factor in lho situation.

A Gsrm Disease Which Is Baffling the

It may be said that doctors are only-
agreed on two points regarding this
much dreaded disease.
First, that it is a gorm disease, nnd.
second, like all germ diseases can

Prevention Is always the better way

Rich, red blood Is a deadly foe to

Etiquette for Murderers
The trials of self-confesBed murderers'who wish to be arrested are related  In  the   Matin  by  M.  Clement
Some time ago a man named Bcrges
was stabbed to death in the. Place de

proved their innocence, were released,
and the matter waB shelved. A tew
days ago, however, a man called at
the office of a police commissary and
said to that official: "My name Is
Marius Yvorra. 1 killed Berges, and
this is how 1 did it." The commissary
listened to the man's confession and
said- "You had better sec my secretary."
The secretary also listened to the
man's confession, and after a little
reflection, said: "Now took here, my
good mnn, this is not the way to get
arrested. You must write us a letter confirming the verbal statements
made to us. Then we'll be able to attend to you. Now, get uhmg." The

on the proposed restoration of the
■teel bounties. A resolution was
passed opposing the good roads policy
nf the government.
To unquestionably prove to,;the
people that indigestion and dyspepsia
-can be permanently relieved and that
Uexall Dyspepsia Tablets will bring
about this result, we will furnish the
medicine absolutely free if it fails to
give satisfaction to any one using it.
The remarkable success of Uexall
Dyspepsia Tablets is due to the high
degree of scientific skill used in devising their formula as well as to the
care exercised in their manufacture,
wheieby the well-known properties of
Bisinuth-Subnitrate and Pepsin have
been combined with Carminatives and
other agents.
Bismuth Subnitrate and Pepsin .are
constantly employed and recognized
by the entire medical profession as invaluable in the treatment of indigestion and dyspepsia.
The Pepsin used in Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets is carefully prepared so as
to develop its greatest efficiency.
Pepsin supplies to the digestive apparatus one of the most important elements of the digestive fluid. Without
it the digestion . and assimilation of
food arc impossible.
The Carminatives possess properties
which aid in relieving the disturbances
and pain caused by undigested food.
This combination of these ingredients
makes * remedy invaluable for the
complete relief of indigestion and dyspepsia. -
We are so certain of this that we
urge you to try Rexall-Dyspepsia Tablets on our own personal guarantee.

this Season.   (j4.h Inspiration of Love and
Affection—i^A Picture that will be like a
Member of  the  Family—A  Daily
Study for Old and Young
'PHE Family Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to be
[ the greatest nnd best family and farm paper on the continent, has "on
mnny occasions given ils readers most delightful premium picture,
Imt this season they have secured what is beyond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper readers. It is entitled "Home
Astain" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two* friends
wbo meet after anxious separation. e
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winners
of many prizes at dog snows, the pride of tbe family and neighborhood,
bus heen stolen, and nfter many days' absence he escapes one night from
bis captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with thc rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
__, His familiar hark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and "brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome hy putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
mid parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an,eager boy with bair like
his mother's and tbe quick gesture of excited boyhood; tbe warm-hearted
uirl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture tbat will win a favored place
on the walls of any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
bis skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals,
Tbe beautiful picture "Home Again" on heavy plate paper 22x29
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FllEE to every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Slar for 1912.
The small sum of 11.50 will secure the two papers for a full year in
finding a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
easilv worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at that price.
Every home in the Boundary should get the big 81.50 worth this

A colored woman went to the pastor
of her church the other day to complain of the conduct of her husband,
who, she said, was a low-down, worthless, trifling nigger. After listening
to a long recital of delinquencies of
her neglected spouse and her efforts
to correct them, the minister said.—
"Have you ever tried heaping coals of
fire upon his head?" "No," was the
reply.   "But I done tried hot water."

Saint Walburg, Sask., (Special)—One

good word for Dodd's Kidney Pills.
They are Mr. snd Mrs. Leon Sergent,
and here is the reason In Mr. Sergent'B
own words:
"I suffered with my Kidneys and I
was very feeble. My urine was thick
and had a brick-dust sediment. As
Dodd's Kidney Pills had already cured
my wife, I bought tbree boxes. Now
my urine is normal and I feel fine."
It Is statements such as these that
give Dodd's Kidney Pills their popularity. They are no cure-all. They
simply cure diseased Kidneys and the
ills that come from diseased Kidneys.
But no matter what neighborhood you
visit you find some man or woman
who has been sick and ln pain and
has been cured hy Dodd's Kidney
Pills. For a score of years this work
has been going on and today in every

are known as the one sure cure for
Kidney Disease, Urinary Troubles,
Backache, Rheumatism, Dropsy, Diabetes and Bright's Disease.

Preparing fer Gigantic Celebration to
Mark Century of Existence.
The preliminary preparations for
celebrating the centenary of the founding of Kamloops in 1812 by the Pacific
Fur Company, are now well in hand.
His Royal Highness, the Governor-
General, Lord Strathcona and otlier
noted personages are expected to attend the opening ceremonies which
will take place in September next,
and will UBher in the festivities
extending <.v..r an emir,, week.
The early, history of Kamloops Is
full of interest. After the post had
'jeen established as Astoria by the
partners ol the Pacific Fur Company,
on.i of their .jiumher, David Stuart,
made an exploring tour to the Shus-
wap country ln the fall of 1811. Finding the district offered a lucrative
field for trading he so reported upon
his return to Astoria and at a meeting of the company, the first to be
held at Astoria, early in 1812, Stuart
was authorized to establish another
trading post between Fort Okanagan
and New Caledonia, where the North
West company had'posts.
Uofore proceeding ln this task
Stuart sent Alexander Ross upon a
trading excursion. Ross followed the

An amusing Incident happened some
time aco ln ono of the Paris courts

was called up as witness, when the
magistrate enquired hei- age.
"Twenty-five last August," promptly replied the lady.
Tho next witness was a young man,
who at once acknowledged that he
was 2" years of age.
"Are you related to the last witness?" queried the magistrate.
' "Yes. I'm her son," he replied.

Soil Radiation and Health
Professor John Mllno suggests that

differences of climate observed In

Here's a big mental Jump from ribbon baskets to pianolas.
A music loving mother who hoped
to see ber children develop Into musical genulses told me yesterday tbat
not only her hope, but the hopes of
many other mothers sbe kuew, had
been blasted by tbe attractions of the
pianola. Children, she explained, who
bad shown quite a talent for music,
rebelled outright against further study
wben a pianola became tbe property
of a neighbor. "What's the use of
practicing," they would argue, "wnen
we can make the machine play the
tune with our feet!" And, though
mothers' hopes may be blasted and
neighborhoods may suffer from the
number of pianolas going nt onco on
still summer nights, the days will be
more peaceful in the Individual borne.
The ears of the family will not be as
sailed by the sound of five linger exercises, nnd there will be fewer contentions becnuse piny Is preferred to
practice. In fnct nowadays the only
children who do tbelr daily two hours'
work at the piano are those destined
to be star performers later on.. It's a
pity, but accomplishments are no
longer considered necessary, ln smart
society. All one has to do are "stunts,"
which In most cases are puerile imitations of some stnge celebrity or nn
accidental personal hit If I don't stop
