Ewing   McCallum    Nearly

I
Oitly Thirty-Seven  People
Voted on the Debenture Bylaw
The vote on the f 16,000 debenture bylaw, for tbe construction of
a reservoir for the city waterworks
system, yesterday, was ridiculously
light, only 37 ballots being cast.
Of tbese, 35 were for tbe bylaw, 1
against, and f spoiled ballot. The
small vote would seem to indicate
that the ratepayers are either indifferent to civic affairs, or else they
resent the attempt of "come-latelieB"
of arrogating to themselves the role
spokesmen for the city.
Yesterday afternoon' Ewing McCallum tnd two companions went
up to the Cooper bridge for the purpose, of taking a swim. After they
had been in the water a short time
tbey decided to build a raft. Of this
undertaking they made short work,
and wben tbe craft was finished
tbey put their shoes and other wearing apparel in a box and started on
their cruise down the stream. The
day was sultry, and therefore the sail
proved all the more refreshing. All
went well until the party reached
Mr. Brown's place. Here the craft
struck an uncharted rock, and
stayed there. The current bere is
very swift, and tbe water is deep,
and in attempting to reach the sbore
young McCallum was swept down
stream. The current bad taken bim
under twice, but, fortunately, aB be
was sinking for the third time he was
rescued by one of his companions.
The boys lost all their clothing,
and had to send over to Nelson for
some fig leaves before tbey could go
borne in a presentable appearance.

METEOROLOGICAL
The Liberal government achieved
a sweeping victory in Saskatchewan
yesterday, carrying the province by
a large majority. The defeat of the
opposition was decisive and complete, former Conservative strongholds sucb as Souris, Pipestone, Last
Mountain, Moose Mountain and
Pheasant Hills returning supporters
of the government by substantial
majorities. In four city seats tbe
opposition held their own fairly
well, splitting even by holding
Moose Jaw City and Prince Albert,
the Liberals holding Regina and
Saskatoon cil es. In the country,
however, the Liberals showed remarkable gains, the farmers regarding the question of wider markets, wbich waB a prominent feature in the campaign, as of paramount importance, inasmuch as tli*
opposition levelled little or no criticism at the record and tbe policies
of the government. F. W. G Haultain had a narrow escape in South
Qu'Appelle. Final results gave bim
only 20 majority. Two of hla chief
lieutenants, Dr. W.Elliott and A. li
Glllis, went down to defeat.
The Conservatives have only carried eight constituencies.

NO OPERATION WASrnr
EVER NEEDED HERE
BECAUSE   MRS.    OOOOINE    USED
DODD'S  KIDNEY  PILLS
Doctor said the would have to undergo operation, but Dodd'a    Kidney Pills cured her.
Central Klngsclear, York Co., Nil.
(Special)—"The doctor said I would
have to undergo an operation."    So
said Mrs. J, V. Goodlne, ot this place.
But she smiled as she inado tho remark, for all need of the dreaded operation hud vanished.     Mrs. Ooodlnc
used  Dodd'a  Kidney  Pills  and ls  n
well woman.     Given In brief and ln
her own words, Mrs. Goodlne's experience Is as follows:
"I was very miserable with KM-
uoy Disease and unable to do my own
work. Tho d«.tor said I would have
to undergo an operation. After using throe boxes of' Dodd's Kidney
Pills I was all better and able to do
my housework, Thia statement Is
true, as you can easily prove by enquiring among my neighbors."
Dodd's Kidney Pills cure the Kidneys, cured kidneys strain, all the
poIbous and other causes ot disease
out of the blood. Thus Dodd'a Kidney Pills ate a natural cure for all
Kidney diseases and all Ilia caused
bv diseased kidneys.

FORESTS AND WATER
Benefits of Manitoba Foreat Reserves
To Surrounding Country
The water supply of a district Is
alwaya considerably Influenced by the
forests at or neur the head-waters
of Its streams.. This ls one of the
reasons why large districts hare been
set aside by the Government of the
Dominion of Canada and many other
governments, to be kept permanently as forests.
The soil within the forest, largely
composed as it Is of decaying aud
decayed leaves, twigs, and other vegetable matter, acts much like a
sponge In soaking up the moisture
that falls. On the other hand, the
absence of high winds within the forest does much to prevent or lessen
evaporation.
The Riding Mountain and Turtle
mountain, forest reserves In Manitoba
are good examples of this tact. 11
the Riding Mountain reserve are th.
head-waters of the MInnedosa (Little Saskatchewan or Rapid! river, one
of the Important tributaries ot the
Assiniboine from which, by the way,
the town of MInnedosa is now deriving power. On, the other side of the
reserve issue many rivers, among
and Qche rivers and Edwards creek.
The last named is n sourco of water-
supply for the town of Dauphin.
In the Turtle Mountain forest is
serve are to be found the sources of
the Pembina and Whitemud rivers, as
well as of many smaller streams,
some of which lose themselves In the
prairie.
Cutting away the forest from tht;
head-waters of the streams woulal
mean that ln spring the melted snows
would rush down these water-course.-,
In a torrent and be wasted, not ti
speak of doing considerable damage
lu Its course, while in summer the
stream beds would be almost dried
up.
Tims not only would the streams be
deprived of auy possible value In producing power, but their value to the
soils of the terming dstrlcts ln keeping up a steady supply of moisture
would be much lessened, if not altogether destroyed.
Frolsty, Near Parit la Suffragette's
Paradise
Not fifty miles from Paris Is a small
town called Frolssy, which Is literally
run by women. Tbls Is not because
the women are women with views but
simply because the town js a town
with needs, and there are no men
there to fill tho needs. Frolssy Is in
the heart of an agricultural province,
and alt the on-coming young farmers
have migrated to more promising
lands. Only the old men remain, and
what with the plojtgh and the reaper
they are kept too busy to'glve any attention to municipal affairs, much less
hold dices. So they have turned
over the reins of village government,
chariot, steeds and all to the women.,
The mayor ls a woman and the superintendent of the railway 'station iB
a woman; the mall-carrier ls a woman
and eo Is the village barber. The
switchman ls a switchwoman, and the
postmaster Is a postmistress. The
telegraph messenger boy is named
Mme I.eseboro. When a proclamation from the mayor ls to be heralded abroad the drummer-boy of Frolssy
who ls a drummer-girl, sallies forth
and sounds a rat-tat on her kettledrum. This city, official is a sturdy
octogenarian Mme. Druhoti-Marchard-
Itt, who has held her post through
wind and rain for years. The official
letter-carrier loo, has been in oflice for
ten yenrs. Her name is Mme. Dou-
bour.
Frolssy Is only five miles from Montreal, ln the Department of the Som-
me, and almost half-way between Amiens to tho uorth and Paris to tho
south. It Is said to be the one civilized
community in which municipal affairs
have been delegated entirely to women.
Philosophy by Post
There was once a man who had a
great scheme of philosphy to propound. He became so engrossed In
his idea tiiat he allowed his hair to
flourish-unrestrained, wore out-of-date
clothing and generally went around in
n slipshod manner.
"Humph!" said those who heard
this. ,"IIe is ouly i-oalng. He does*
n't mean what he snys"
So he had his hair cnt and acquired
clothing of the latest, stylo and pat
tern. Having remodelled hiniKell'
thus, once more he started forth to
fapread his new doctrine.
"Humph!" said thc same people.
"He Is only bluffing. He doesn't know
whnt he is talking about."

"Has your husband," he enquired,

"That he have, sir," replied Mrs.

"Oh, dreadful, sir! Such laugwidge

Longest Span Bridge
It Is claimed for the new double-
deck bridge which ls now nearly completed across the Missouri river ut
Kansas City that it ls the longest
span riveted bridge as yet constructed, the length of the main spau being 425 feet- The striking novelty
of tlie structure Is the fact that lhe,
lower platform can be raised against
the floor by means of power-operated
cables, drums nnd concrete counterweights. The vertical travel of the
platform is Hi feet, and it is raised
and lowered by two 250 horse-power
motors.

Taking for granted that all

the debenture bylaw, it appears to be a debatable question whether our contemporary had sufficient influence to
induce its editor and staff to
cast their ballots for the measure. 	
Premier Scott once addressed a political meeting in
this city. Those of our citizens who heard him on that
occasion can readily account
for the splendid victory he
gained in .Saskatchewan yesterday.

WHO IS A CHRISTIAN?
Who is a Christian in this Christian land-
Of many chu«.hes and bf lofty spires?
Not he who sits ifi softiupholstered pews
Bought by the profits of unholy greed,
And looks devotion, while he thinks.of gain.
Not he who sends petitions from the lips
That lie tomorrow in the street and mart.
Not he who fattens on another's toil,
And fling unearned riches to the poor,
Or aids the heathen with a lessened wage,
And builds cathedrals with an increased rent.
Christ, With Thy great, sweet, simple'creed of love,
How must Thou weary of earth's "Christian" clans.
Who preach salvation through Thy saving blood
While planning slaughter of their fellow men.
Who is a Christian'. • Is it one whose life
Is built on love, on kindness and oil faith;
Who holds his brother as his other self;
Who toils for justice, equity and peace,
And hides no aim or purpose in his heart
That will not chord with universal good!
Though he be pagan, heretic or Jew,
That man is Christian and beloved of Christ.

A small renegade publication in the Similkameen
makes the imputation that a
newspaper can not exist in
British Columbia without participating in the advertising
graft from Victoria. Our

province, however, that do not
exchange cringing servility for
Sovernment pap appear to be

country. This is a favorite
method of warfare of the government-supported press of

pie's attention to the ills of
other countries in order to

Tory campaign methods in
Saskatchewan landed some of
the perpetrators in jail. The
majority of the guilty ones,
however, escaped.
Rogers in Saskatchewan
HoriT Robert Roper? is continuing
his direction of the Conservative
campaign in the province of Sits-
katchewan^and the machine which
he represents is hopeful tbat bis
brilliant political generalship will
achieve its customary success. The
whole federal Tory party has willingly left it to Mr. Rogers to defeat
tbe Scott administration. His tactics are well understood; they are
tactics of corruption; they are tbe
tactics that would be pursued by no
one who * as not utterly devoid of
public morality as well as entirely
indifferent to tbe reputation as a
public man be t-njoyed. But itr:
M r. Rogers'hands tbey have ordinarily proved successful tactics. Mr,
Rogers h a gone into Saskatchewan
offering gifts and, inferential!)',
threatening penalties. With his
sinister belief in tbe purchaaeable-
ness of the public he feels himself
fquril to the situation wbich he finds
Ihere. It is a difficult situatione;
one that might daunt most men.
But, if it is difficult, Mr. Rogers is
well equipped, he thinks, to encounter it. The great issue is reciprocity. The farmers of Saskatchewan believe in reciprocity. With
free trade relations, in natural products, with the United Stairs, tbey
would bave an easy, a safe and a
profitable market for tbeir harvests.
There wonld be do danger of loss
such as occurred last year, o<ving to
the wheat blockade. Their reasonable profits would not be eaten up
with excessive railway tola. They
would be sure of reaping the-fruit of
their labor and of their investment.
It is that knowledge on the part of
the people of Saskatchewan, regarding what is for their best interests,
that Mr Rogers has to overcome if
he ia to defoat the Scott nilmiiiisjra
tion and place Mr. Haultain in
power.—-Vancouver Sun.

■ Average price received for eggs,
■Stye per dozen. Pen Temperature—
Highest, 92°; lowest, 42°; average
mean temperature, 66.01°. Rain fell
on ten days; eight dull days, and
bright sunshine on tnenty-one days.
A terrific hailstorm occurred on May
21, and a very heavy thunderstorm
took place on June 19 and 20.
The past month has been the hottest one during the whole contest. On
- the 17th of June the glass reached 92
degrees in the shade. The effect of
this high temperature was noticed on
the 19th and 20th. Practically one-
third of the pens stopped laying, thus
showing that heat waves will affect
the egg production adversely. This
condition also happened earlier on in
the competition,. Blasting was carried
.  on as usual.
The pens deserving mention this
month for creditable performance are
den 19 (103eggs), 2 (101), 18_(98).
20 (93), 1 (92),. 15 (83)," 14 (81),
10(80).   ;-.
Following pens in lightweights produced broodies during the month:
Pens 1, 8 and 23 (2 birds each), 7, 10,
17, 19, 20-and 22(1 bird each).
The average weight of dozen 3ggs
produced by pens in Class 1, show
that while some pens have increased,
others have decreased. The pens producing the heaviest eggs at present are
5 and 14 (26 ozs. to dozen), 17 (25}),
9 and 21 (25} ozs. each), 18, 19, 10,
ll,4(24Jozs.), 3, 8 (24}), 23 (24
ozs.). At the periodical weighing of
a crate of 12 dozen eggs, the scales
turned at 18 pounds, averaging exactly 2 ozs. per egg.       .    .
Feather eatiug is still causing trouble, although it is worthy of remark
to notice that it does uot appear to
affect the egg production of some of
the pens addicted to this habit
In Class 2, pens 38 and '33 have
parted company, the Wyandottes forging ahead by a few eggs.
The star performers during the
month have been pens 38 (92 eggs),
26 (86 eggs), 33 and 35 (84 eggs
each).
The hot weather had its effect on
the heavyweights, and the following
are lists of broodies: Pen 36, 8 birds;
pen 39, 5 birds; pens 25, 27 and 29,
4 birds each; pens 31, 34 and 37, 3
birds each, and pens 30, 32, 33 and
35, 2 birds each.
The following pens produced the
heaviest dozens of eggs: 36,27 ozs.;
33, 26 ozs.; 39, 25} ozs.; 30, 25 ozs.;
34 and 38, 24}ozs.; 26, 24J ozs.; 32,
24 ozs. Pen 40 produced the lightest
eggs in the competition, 19} ozs. to
the dozen.
As usually occurs with eggs of the
general purpose breeds, as the season
advances, they have gradually lost
their brownish color, and the eggs are
now mostly of a light tint. Pens 31,
32 and 33 are still laying eggs of a
deeper color than' their competitors.
This seems to be one ef the traits of
the Rhode Island Reds.

.  "HOME c4GAIN"
The Beautiful Picture for Grand Forks Sun and Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star Subscribers
this Season.   ^An Inspiration of Love and
Affection—t^A Picture that will be like a
Member  of  the  Family—A  Daily
Study for Old and Young
*T*HK Family Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to be
1    the greatest nntl best family and farm paper on the continent, has on
many occasions given its reatlere most delightful' premium picture,
but this season they have secured what is beyond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper reader-*. - It is-entilled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation.
"Laddie," a collie dug, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winners
nf mnny prizes at dbg snows, the pride of the family and nekhhorhood,
has been stolen, and nfter many days' absi'iice lie escapes one night from
his captor and returns home una simwy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in his struggles fur freedom dandling from his co'lnr.
His familiar bark 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 nntl brother to the door. I'Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting bis
paws on her shoulder and resting his heail against her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where Hove is Home,"
The sweet-faced young mother, a womnn of soft curves, tender eyes
lind parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the wajrm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture thnt will win n favored place
on the walls of any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
Tbe beautiful picture "Home Again" on heavy plate paper 22x20
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of.
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly .Star for 1912
The small sum of SI.50 will secure the two papers for a full yenr including a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
»asily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at thnt.price.
Every home in the Boundary should get the big SI.50 worth this
season.
Our severest critics are sometimes
those who never say a word.
We would like to be in fashion if it
were stylish to be comfortable.
A bluff is as good as the real  thing
when it is any good at all.
Look out for   your friends.   Your
enemies will take care of themselves.
You do not have to be an accomplished equestrian in order to ride a
hobby.
The fellow who can say that he
never told a lie and get away with it
has had lots of practice.    •
It's queer that the fellows whogo up
'n flying machines find it so hard to
keep their courage up.
One reason why we are always so
sorry for ourselves is because it- is a
job that we like to-see well done.
It often seems too bad to spoil a good
spender for the sake of making a poor
economizer, but that's one of life's
little tragedies.

WHAT TO  DO  RIGHT  NOW
Practical Suggestions by W. J. Glass,
.Macleod, Alberta
(Written especially for the International Dry-Farming Congress Bulletin, "Dry-Farming.")
In answer to your Inquiry as to
what to do on the farm right now, I
will say now Is the time to get busy
antl work, get our seed Into the soil
(especially wheat), so that lt will
be matured before the frost.
We should have done our letter
writing and studying during the win-
♦ «•«     Nevertheless, I will give
a few hints as lo how I work my land
to prepare a seed bed and preserve
the moisture, and also my opinions
as regards the best periods to sow
different cereals.
We all know that practically no fall
plowing was done last year, therefore our land has either to be plowed this spring, or just disced and drill
ed. On account of such a short time
and so much work to be done, and
plowing taking longer than discing,
the question arises: "Is it necessary
to plow or will discing do?"
Plow Every Year
I am a firm believer In plowing ev-.
ery year, except on new land which
has only had one crop taken from it
and Is not well rotted- Land In this
'*'—■•"'" and clear (free from weeds)
could be disced a couple of times and
seeded with fairly good (results, although, as a rule, one does not gel
as large a yield.
Immediately after plowing use the
packer, the same day lf possible; thc
sooner after plowing the better. This
ls to keep the land from drying out.
If you haven't a packer, use a float.
If you haven't a float, use a disc. A
float is a simple affair made by boltiu.-
four, five or six 2 x 10x1.4 or IC
planks together, letting the second
lap the flrst, and so on until you
get the required Bize.
Of course, if you find your floal
Is not heavy, enough, you can weight
lt down with stones—Oh! I forg ot,
not many fanners have stones on
their land; well, old iron or anylbin r
with weight will do.
Method* of Cultivation
•Now, as to the cultivation needed
alter packing or floating before drill
ing, all depends on condition of the
soil. • If.-very lumpy, disc, if not, the
harrow will do. It should he cultivated until no lumps leniiilu blsser
than a hen's egg.
I would not iu any case advise using any Implements after seeding that
leaves the surface of the trout.*1
smooth, as this aids evaporation, ami
also leaves the land powdery on toil,
ana the wind Is likely to l.tw .hj
■oil.
As to the time of seeding, I believe
from April lit until the end of lite
first week ln May it Is safe to sow
wheat. After that date I would uow
oats or barley until the end of May.
Land that I had not seeded by that
time, I would summer fallow. I pre-
. fer to sow my oats antl barley the
last week ln April or the first week
of May antl be through seeding by
May 15th.
8ummer Fallowing
Just a word about summer fallow.
Do not leave your summer fullow lo >
late, but plow in June. H.v leaving
the weeds grow they take plant food
antl nioislitre from the soil.
Bo sure and treat your grain for
sniul. I treat with formal! at the
rate of one pound to 35 gallons of
water. I have never had any smut,
but I treat us a preventive. If your
grain Is smutty, make your solution
stronger.
The system I follow ls to pour 4 or
K bushels of grain in u wagon box,
A Trial Treatment

If you, or someone dear to
you, arc suffering tho itching, burning, sleep-destroying torments of eczema or
other cruel skin eruption,

of skin-tortured sufferers,
from infancy to age, have
found that thc first warm
bath with Cuticura Soap
and gentle application of
Cuticura Ointment bring
instant relief, permit rest
and sleep, and prove the

There are probably at least a dozen profitable uses for concrete on your farm at the present moment.

There are many strange, uncivilized
ipeople among the Asiatic Americans
of the Philippine Islands.
Tbe Tlnglans are a very uncouth
tribe of Bavuges. Tbelr bead women
have their arms almost completely
covered wllb strings of beads, wound
so as to form beautiful and striking
designs. A long, heavy string of beads
Is also twisted around tbe bair and
bangs down the back like a braid. Tbe
skirt ot these beud women Is wblte,
with a blue border, and tbe waist ls of
light yellow. They smoke pipes of
solid silver, ornamented wltb bangles,
In lbe bowls ot which pieces of cigar
are' Inserted.
The typical young Tlnginn chieftain
wears a stiff collar of beads and a gay-
ly colored calico shirt, over which is a
sort of scarf trimmed with many silver coins. The members of tills tribe
are very fond of sliver. Tbey make a
large number of finger rings from
sliver coins, and each man usually has
from five to ten of these rings about
his person, but not necessarily ou his
fingers.
The Tinglans are foud of a peculiar
dance. The music Is produced by beating with the palms of tbe hands on
"gansas" or tomtoms. The dancers, a
man and a womau, wltb arms outstretched, circle about each other in a
spiral, tbe man pursuing the womnn I
with a quick, jerky step. As tbey approach the center of tbe spiral be suddenly swoops, upon her, wben she always eludes him by suddenly darting
out ot his reach.—rorrest Clark In Leslie's.

Did you ever hear of a womanless

Well, there ts one on a peninsula
south of Macedonia, In Greece, where
10,000 men live, studying and praying

Policemen guard tbe lands constantly to keep out women pilgrims and
other undesirable guests.        I
This place is called tbe Mount ofthe
Twenty Monasteries nnd was used In
ancient tlmcu as n signaling station,
but Is naw a real republic.
Tbese 10,000 monks govern themselves without Interference from Turkey or nny other country. There are,
however, no government buildings, no
president or other officeholders'.
The only police force Is composed of
men, wbo patrol the coast to keep out
women nnd men wbo have no permit
to enter tbls most exclusive of countries. Only those wbo havo a letter
of permission from tho (Jreek patriarch
in Constantinople are allowed to enter
tbe holy place.
Some reports have It tbnt Mils republic was formed In tbo ninth cen
tury. It Is snid tbnt the foot of woman has not touched tbe soil of the
place for centuries.
Tbe monks wbo lire oa the place
work tbe soil a little, but Ihey depend
chiefly upon contributions from pilgrims for tbelr existence. Probably
tbe greatest collection of Biblical manuscripts Is In tbe monasteries of tbls
republic.
"It Is the most Interesting place In
tbe world for tbe student of tho Bible," said a traveler who recently visited tbat country. "I have been tbere
tbree times already, and I will never
tiro of going. There aro In the monasteries thousands ot Greek manuscripts, nud hundreds ot tbem aro connected wltb tbe New Testament
"Hundreds of Bible students hare
studied--mauy ot tbese manuscripts
very carefully, but there aro otber
manuscripts tbat have not jet been
read carefully. It may be tbat great
discoveries, valuable to the Bible scientists, will emanate yet from tbit
great storehouse ot manuscripts."

each expiration of the lungs and the

about onc-fourtb of the time. Certain
of the other organs suspend thetr activity in part during sleep.
Old physiologists supposed lhat sleep

brain as the origin of all force and of
all functions of the body, Inclines to
the view that sleep is caused by a

SHOW IN BRITAIN.
English Railway! Have Spint Ttioua*
andi Clearing Their Lines.
The recent severe weather that has
been felt practically all over Canada
has been of more inconvenience to
the railways and lias caused them
more expense tban they have been
put to tor some years back. A comparison between the conditions as they
ara in the Dominion and in Great
Britain is interesting.
A mild winter is a big boon to the
railways, for frost and snow increase!
their working expenses enormously,
and during very severe weather the
cost ot keeping the traffic moving attains abnormal figures.
Du.iiig the great storm of January
1881, the Great Western had fifty passenger trains and a dozen goods trains
snowed up at different parts of their
system. Over a huudred niles of
snow-bound line had to be cleared,
and when the bill was paid it came
to $290,000. So great was the stoppage caused by that memorable storm,
that the Bristol, Exeter, and Plymouth mails were held up for twenty
four hours at Paddington, until the
line was partially opened.
During a prolonged storm it is not
uncommon ior a big railway to spend
$7,500 a day in clearing the line, and
their most formidublo weapon for
fighting the battle with the drifts is
the snow-plow. Towering 13 feet 0
inches high and weighing, when fully
equipped, nearly thirty tons, these
huge vehicles, shaped like the bows
of a ship, convey an impression of irresistible strength, especially when
propelled by two or three engines.
A railway snow-plow is built on
massive iron frame, carried on small
bogie wheels, just clearing rail level.
The steel cutting edge rise3 perpendicularly between inclined plates, tapering outwards to throw the snow
clear of the line.
Within the hollow body of the snow-
plow there is accommodation for about
forty men. Cushioned box seats, making in emergency, not bad sleeping
bunks, ate arranged round tlie sides.
Inside them are scores ol shovels
and picks, also screw jacks and
"ramps" for lilting derailed vehicles.
A good supply of provisions, provided
by the raHway .company, is taken "on
board" before starting on a journey,
which in rough weather may extend
for days. Two of the gang take turns
at preparing meals, for whioh purpose
the snow-plow is furnished with a
large stove. ..:
When'under way, and traveling
over smooth, dry snow, the sensatiou
inside a' plow is rather unique. The
show, divided by the cutting-edge,
streams up the inclined planes in twin
torrents. Where drifts abound, lull
slcam is put on, and, wilh a rush,
tlie enormous weight oi the engines
and plow, often three hundred tons
or more, is hurled against the obstruction. The plow buries itself in
the drift. Tlie Bpeed slackens mere
ami more. The attendant engines pant
fiercely. Round whirl the wheels,
slipping on the wet rails. Vainly, with
spur of fire, the drivers urge on their
iron steeds. But the compact phalanx
of snowflakes conquer, and tlie snow-
plow, big ns it is, has lo be ignomin-
fously backed out, retreated down the
line, and with a Hying start return,*
again to the attack.
L0.UIS NAPOLEON'S ESCAPE.
Disguised at a Workman Hi Fooled thi
Ham Fortresi Guard.
From tbe researches made hy M.
Thirrla come some Interesting details
ot tbe escape of Louls Napoleon-from
tbe fortress of Bam, in northern
France, on May 25, 1840.
It seems tbat tbe sole credit for tbe
escape must lie wltb: Louis Napoleon
himself. He made his valet, Thclln,
buy a black wig, some rouge, a cap
which was scrubbed witb pumice
stone aud a pair of sabots. Tben be
cut off bis mustache, put on a blue
apron, a blue pair of trousers and a

Some workmen were carrying out
tome repairs to that part of the fortress where tbe prince lodged, and this
gave color to bis disguise, so much ao
that the two watchmen entertained no
suspicions regarding lbe mun who

TOO MUCH HOSPITALITY.
Welcomes Offered to Travelers Often
Embarrassing.
Beturncd missionaries, explorers
and those who travel in out-of-the-way
regions of the globe keep constantly
bringing back tales of the strange
ways much of mankind still have
with their guests.
With the Apingi tribe of Africa,
just below the Equator, the essence ef
hospitality is to include among the
presents oi food handed over to the
visitor a fat slave. "He is young and
tender," the donor says thinking that
no one can fail to approve of this
gilt, so much better than the fowls,
etc., that havo beeu thrown in. "Kill
bim for your evening meal." On the
other hand, the Navajo Indian considers the finest tribute lie can pay
is to have his wife shampoo the head
of the passing traveler with amole,
the root of a plant grown in Mexico
and some parts of the Southwest, tliat.
is a very good substitute for soap.
The Papuans of New Guinea in tho
Pacifio have an even more novel way
of showing great friendship for the
stranger. Water signifies peace and
satisfaction with tliem, so when a
boat approaches bearing people of
whom they approve at lirst sight they
springle water on thoir heat'.s and
dance wildly and gayly in the shallow water around the boat.
The average traveler would much
rather not become friends with a
.Terra del Fuegian, for the people of
that nationality know of no better way
of expressing liking and showing honor than by hugging the stranger. As
these savages of the tip-end of South
America are very nearly the 'dirties^
on record ,and as their bodies aria
covered with grease, clay and vermin,
such hugging is most offensive. It is
not to~be avoided, though, if any native of high rank takes a strong liking
to his visitor.
Tliere is a Siberian tribe that makes
a practice of eating a guest whom it
admires-or whose virtues it greallj
desires to emulate, in order, so the
story goes, that his virtue might abide
—"in their midst." The tourist, however, is generally speaking, safe in
this Russianized country.
If he visits the Tchuktchi close to
Behrlng's Straits and gets into one
of their big tents he will find a family
almost completely nude. The women
will not mind at all. If he passes
muster they will honor him and make
him feel at home by putting strings
of glass beads in their hair that has
been copiously covered with grease.
Then, of course, having been shown
this courtesy, he must stay in the
smoky stiffling atmosphere and sup
on hot broiled reindeer.
The visitor to an Abyssinian village must first sit under a tree and
let himself be observed. Then some
important individual will step forward and give liim the freedom of his
house. The Ashangos meet the traveler with dishes of red paint and the
man who does not paint himself at
once is definitely "queered" in that
village. The Zunis of New Mexico and
Arizona offer their guests, a "cocktail." lt is made ol mesquite beans
pounded in an earthen jar, parched
com and flour, and is reported to be
a very superior appetizer.
The black Batokas of tlie Zambesi
roll on their barks and deal themselves resounding slaps on their naked skins. If tlie rolling is prolonged
and the slaps and the attendant yelling very loud the guest is high in
favor. Some New Zealanders squat
on the ground and weep. The Nubians
wait anxiously for the coming visitor
and are eager to entertain. A jar ol
fresh water is always ready in each
house of the tribe ior the stranger
and no one else. Tlie Kaffirs assure
eacn white visitor that lie ranks as a
chief and make good in tha way they
entertain him.

First and foremost lbe English excel
In salesmanship. Once bavlng got

not assume tbnt attitudo ot royal Indifference as with us. He watches the
struggle beween salesperson and customer. If the latter shows signs of escaping Into the open wltb his purse Intact another clerk In brought forward
as n re-enforcement Somo establishments still lay fines on clerks wbo do
not effect sales, but the system ot Inciting the sales force to Us utmost efforts by giving percentages Is oow

The method that London stores have
of letting a cash girl conduct a customer wbo bas finished his purchases
to a central cash desk and/wrapplng
couuter, where he stands In line, keeping an anxious eye on bis goods till
they are parcelled, seems to us archaic
and cumbersome. An Oxford street
merchant, however, reasons differently:
"When a patron has finished his purchases he Is better out of tbe way ot
new customers. English men and women prefer privacy when they are making purchases, which would be Impossible wero customers allowed to sit at

Dr.  Simmons,    dentist,    Morrison

liob Fitzsimmons and bis company gave a porformance at the
Orand Forks opera bouse on Monday evening to a large audience.
By comparing Mr. FitzBimmons'
/ former position of affluence and popularity witb his condition of today,
when, in order to earn a livelihood,
he is compelled to take in the one-
night stands, a moral might easily
be extracted therefrom. But tbe
wise man does not need to be told
what this moral is; and the unwise
thinks he is too wise to profit by it
even if he were told.

Mann-Tovey
Arthur Robert Mann, the well
known druggist of this city, and
Miss Beatrice A. Tovey, of Peterborough, Ont., were married in the
latter city on the 22d ult. The Peterborough Examiner of the 24th ult.
gives the following account of the
wedding:
At 2:30 o'clock on Saturday afternoon the Charlotte street Methodist
cburcb was the scene of a pretty
June wedding, when tbe marriage
wus solemnized of Miss Beatrice A.
Tovey, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
George J. Tovey, to Arthur Robert
Mann, of Gran d Forks, B.C., formerly of Peterborough. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. G. W. Henderson in the presence of a large
number of friends of the young
couple. The church looked en fete
under the decoration of marguerites,
the work of the biide's young lady
friends. The bride wore a beautiful
gown of white Duchesse satin,
trimmed with pearls and lace. As
the bridal party entered the church
Mendelssohn's wedding march was
played by Miss Clarry. The bride
was given away by ber brother, Geo.
H. Tovey, in the absence of her
father. Her niece, Miss Vera Tovey,
was an ideal little flower girl.
During tbe ceremony Mrs. Bruce
Hughes sang, "0 Promise Me." Afterwards tbe wedding party drove to
the bride's home, 463 King Btreet,
where luncheon was served. Mr.
and Mrs. Mann left on the 5:30 G.T.
R. train for Rochester, New York
and Atlantic City, The bride wore
a tan travelling suit and tan hat
trimmed with corn flowers. Mr. aud
Mrs. Mann will return to Peterborough tor a short time before leaving for their future home in Graud
Forks.
Roses
The rose has one great beauty
which many are unfamiliar with or
overlook. It pays to be liberal with
them to your f riends. If you want
plenty of good roses every morning
cut off bunches and take tbem to
tbe office as offerings to the stenographers who may not be so fortunate as not to bave a rose garden.
This is the practical way of pruning the rose for size of flower and to
prolong the blooming period. But if
you are selfish and stingy and propose to keep all tbe floral beauties
for himself, to let tbem. bloom and
die upon the plants, you will have
a few meaBely, miserable little speci
mens and the roses will last but a
few days. Make it a rule to never
let a rose w tber upon the bush—
cut it off, wilh a liberal stem, ut lbe
height of its bloom and give it to
some one, not because you love
tbem, but because you love the
roses. And nature will repay your
generosity by giving you more and
belter roses thau you ever before enjoyed.
The rose is the one flower that exemplifies the beauty of giving, for
the more you give away tbe more
you have. And therein rests its
greatest charm,
