Railway   Officials    Ratify
Agreement With the
Municipality
Will Be Submitted to tne
Ratepayers ou the 26th
Instant
The agreement between tbe Canadian Pacific and Kettle Valley Railway   companies  and the  city of
Grand Forks, whereby  the above
railway companies agree to make
Urand Forks a joint divisional point
and erect  machine  shops  and  a
roundhouse   bere  in   exchange for
certain concessions  granted by the
municipality, was  received  io tbe
city  on Wednesday.    The agree
ment is  tbe same  as wben it was
sent east for tke the signatures of
the railway officials.   A synopsis of I
its  salient  featnres was printed in
Tl/i. Sun  a few weeks ago.   Tbe
document, wben it arrived   in   the
city,   bore  the signatures of J. C.
Bury,   vice-president and   general
manager of  the Canadian Pacific
railway, and J. J.Warren, president
of the-Kettle Valley line, together
with   the  official  seals of tlie two
railway companies.
At a special meeting of tbe city
council last mgbttbe agiei-nent was
signed by tbe mayor and tba city
clerk on tbe part of tbe city, and tbe
seal of the corporation of the city of
Qrand Forks attached to it. Tbe
bylaw ratifying tbe document was
advanced to tbe third reading stage,
and it will be submitted lo the ratepayers on tbe 22d inst Tbe agree

at present in the atmosphere. If tbis
rate of consumption of - ooal were
continued 812 years tbe amount of
carbon in tbe atmosphere would be
doubled.
"It therefore appears probable
tbat witbin a comparatively short
time in tbe future, as compared with
a single geological period, or even an
epoch, the amount of carbon in one
of  ite  great  reservoirs, the atmos-
pnerc, vttn-w t..A~~ ..-. _?—______
portant  extent.    From  this fact,
various geological consequences are
likely to follow.   One of tbe most
important of tbese is a higher average temperature for the globe.   According to Arrbenius, if the carbon
dioxide is increased 2.5 to 3  times
its present value, the temperature of
tbe Arctic regions must rise 8 deg.
to  9 deg. Cent. (14 deg. to 55 deg.
Fahr.) and produce, a  climate  as
mild as that of the  Eocene   period.
According to  the above  computation, the carbon would be increased
by   the  oxidation of  coal alone to
■three times its present  amount  in
one  thousand  six  hundred    and
twenty-four years.
'■A  further  consequence   wbieh
would follow from an increase in tbe
amount of carbon in tbe atmosphere
and tbe warmer climate would be a
mucb  more abundant and widespread vegetation, and more vegetation means that when oxidized more
carbon dioxide will be concentrated
in the soil, and  this  concentration
will lead to an acceleration in   thel
rate of carbonation.   Furthermore,
the increase of average temperature
of the globe will accelerate all otber
chemical reactions of  tbe  belt of
weathering.   It  therefore   appears
probable that the artificial oxidation
of  coal   will result in some of tbe
most profound and far reaching geological consequences which are due
to tbe agency of man."
Since this was written the world's
annual consumption of coal bas
about doubled, so tbat six ihousand
million tons of carbonic oxide are
now being annually discharged into
tbe atmosphere. In view of this fact,
there' is little wonder that Prof
Van Hfse's prognostications in regard to tbe increased temperature
sbould have been so swiftly verified.

Meeting Called for Tuesday
Evening to Discuss the
Subject
We'll Be in the Banana Belt
A prophecy of what is claimed by
many to be the increasing temperature of tbe earth and an explanation
of tbe recent prevalence of bot summers is found in a volume written
by C. R. Van Hise, president of the
University of Wisconsin, and published in 1904 by tbe United States
Geological Survey.   In tbis book (A
Treatise  on Metamorphism) Prof.
Van Hise pointed out tbat the enormous burning of coal by man  must
steadily vitiate tbe air by the discharge of carbon dioxide, and that
this   vitiation   must bring about a
marked increase in the temperature
of the globe.    He Gave (pages 4«3-
4fi5).
"In   1899  the  amount of coal
mined and oxidized amounted  to
723,287,454 metric tons.  At the be
ginning  of  Ihe Inst  decade'of the
nineteenth century, 1890, the production was only 511,518,358 metric
tons.   This shows bow rapid the increase in the use of coal -has been,
and therefore a combustion of one
billiou metric tons a year is probably very conservative as the  estimated average for the  present century. Taking one billion metric tons
as the amount of coal  oxidized   per
annum for tbe future, and suppos
ing  the amount of carbon in this-
coal   to  average   80 per cent, the
quantity of carbon which passes inlo
the atmosphere would be 2,933,333,-
000 metric tons per annum. This is
0.1233 per cent of the total carbon moved to this valley

i iSii DATA
Commission Investigates the
Rights Held by Persons
in This District
The provincial water commission,
composed of J. F. Armetrong, controller of water rights; Clifford Var-
coe, civil engineer, and   E. Davis,
clerk, beld a couple  of sessions at
the government office in this city on
Monday and Tuesday.   The object
of tbe work of the commission was to
make a thorough examination as to
validity  and   priority of the water
rights held by the people of the district, and together all the data pos
sible concerning them.   Ail the records of the neighborhood came up
for  investigation,   and some  surprises resulted. Some persons who
have been under tbe impression tbat
tbey held first right to a   body   of
water, found tbat some one else had
taken out a prior record.   A number of records of persons *vho have
removed from the district, and in
cases were  the  law   had not been
complied with, were cancelled.    No
final decisions as to priority or val
idity  were  rendered  in tbe cases
passed upon, as tbat work   is   re
served for a -sitting of the commission in Victoria
A meeting of tbe ranchers of the
valley, and the citizens generally,
will be held in the Miners' Union
hall on Tuesday, August Ul, and 8

is an important matter, as the profit
able marketing of the fruit and
farm crops affects the prosperity of
the entire community. It is to be
hoped that be ranchers, business
men and everybody else interested
in this subject will make it a
point to attend the meeting.

NEWS OF THE CITY IN BRIEF
A" peal of music on the public
streets during the. busy hours yesterday forenoon, startled the citizens, and diverted their attention
from their customary occupations.
Many opinions were hazarded as to
the cause for the martial strains.
Some, thought tbat England had declared war against Germany, while
others expressed the belief that tbe
coronation of the city officials was
about to take place. It turned out
to .be nothing more serious, however, than an impromptu musicale
by'lhe juvenile band from the Chil-
Uren's Home at Des Moines,   \Va»h.

The Greenwood Miners' union bas
asked the British Columbia Copper
company to make a wage scale similar to the one in Butte. This scale iB
a sliding one.based uponjthe price of

Newspaper Virility
The story is going the   rounds  of
; a western newspaper publisher who
wrote to six prominent men  nf  his
j locality   asking for subjects to dis-
■ cuss in his columns     He   received
seventy two   suggestions   in   reply.
His comment on their chaTacter is
: that if he should write for a   week
j along the lines suggested by  the six
representative citizens' he had  consulted,  he  would be nnd should be
ducked in the river as a   common
scold.   The  story   may be  a true
one, and the Montreal Gazette remarks: "There are evidently in the
I world a lot   of  people,   besides the
| publishers of one cIhss   nf   journal
i who think  that lo sneer at, malign
and affront other people is the   first
evidence of newspaper virility."

We'll Be in the Banana Belt
A prophecy of what is claimed by
many to be the increasing temperature of the earth and an explanation
of tbe recent prevalence of hot summers is found in a volume written
by C. R. Van Hise, president of tbe
University of Wisconsin, and pub
lished in 1904 by tbe United States
Geological Survey. In tbis book (A
Treatise on Metamorphism) Prof.
Van Hise pointed out tbat the enormous burning nf coal by man must
steadily vitiate the air by the discharge of carbon dioxide, and that
this vitiation must bring about a
marked increasa in the temperature
of the globe. He says (pages 4(1.1
4«5):
■'In 1899 the amount of coal
mined and oxidized amounted to
;'_..1,__87,4_,-i metric tons. At the beginning of Ihe last decade'of the
nineteenth century, ISflO, the production was only 511,018,368 metric
tons. This shows how rapid the in-
creese in the use of coal-has been,
and therefore a combustion of one
hilliou metric tons a year ie probably very conservative as the estimated average for the present century. Taking one billion metric tons
as the amount of coal oxidized per
annum for the future, and suppos
ing the amount of carbon in this
coal to average 80 per cent, the
quantity of carbon which passes into
the atmosphere would be 2,933,3,13,-
DOO metrio tons per annum. This is
i). 12.13 per cent of the total carbon
at present in the atmosphere. If this
rate of consumption of - coal were
continued 812 years tbe amount of
carbon in tbe atmosphere would be
doubled.
'It therefore appears probable
tbat within a comparatively short
time in the future, as compared with
a single geological period, or even an
epoch, tbe amount of carbon in one
of its great reservoirs, tbe atmosphere, will be increased to ail important extent. From tbis fact,
various geological consequences are
likely to follow. One of the most
important of tbese is a higher average temperature for the globe. According to Arrbenius, if the carbon
dioxide is increased 2.5 to 3 times
its present value, the temperature of
the Arctic regions must rise 8 deg.
to 9 deg. Cent. (14 deg. to 66 deg,
Fabr.) and produce, a climate as
mild as tbat of the Eocene period.
According to the above computation, tbe carbon would be increased
by the oxidation of coal alone to
three times its present amount in
one thousand six hundred and
twenty-four years.
"A further consequence wbich
would follow from ao increase in the
amount of carbon in the atmosphere
and the warmer climate would be a
much more abundant and wide'
spread vegetation, and more vegetation means that when oxidized more
carbon dioxide will be concentrated
in the soil, and this concentration
will lead to an acceleration in the
rate of carbonation. Furthermore,
the increase of average temperature
of tbe globe will accelerate all other
chemical reactions of the belt of
weathering. It therefore appears
probable tbat the artificial oxidation
of coal will result in some ofthe
most profound and far-reaching geological consequences which are due
to tbe agency of man."
Since tbis was written tbe world's
annual consumption of coal bas
about doubled, so tbat six ihousand
million tons of carbonic oxide are
now being annually discharged into
the atmosphere. In view of this fact,
there' is little wonder that Prof
Van Hfse's prognostications in regard to the increased temperature
should have been eo swiftly verified.

Rare Roman Coins
Coins burled for 1.600 years came
to light al. Domplerre, Fiance, when a
farmer was levelling his yard. These
date from the Qallo-Roman period
and number about 2,800. Of these
some 2,000 are silver and the rest
bronze. They had been burled In an
earthernware vessel placed In a
stone built hiding place. As to lbe
silver coins, these are iu a very good
plate of preservation ahd are line
specimens, but the bronze coins suffered much from the air. A number
ot rare pieces were found In the collection coming from the reigns of
some obscure Roman emperors of the
late period. The oldest coins date
from the Emperor Trajan (63 to 117
A.D.) ond the most recent from Diocletian. It Is thought that the coins
were burled nbout 315 A.D.

years old lt was Imagined that the remains of early civilizations had bean
pushed as far Into antiquity as thoy

of a town ln an Arizona tablelai.d
near Phoenix, which he insists are at
least 10,000 years old. The buildings are on a level stretch of count, y
where neither slit nor wash was possible and yet the ruins were cover-.il
with teu feet of prairie dust which
the discoverer claims required age.i

elapsed since the cotton which ho
found was grown to have wrought a

the country. This period he also
gauges as something like 10,000

He Is sallsfled that the ruins are
older than those of Ninevah or Babylon. He believes that the race whlclr

In addition to thus being divided into '

equal chance with those who use more, thc
Conteit is also divided into nine divisions, one

Extermination of Rats and Mica
If it were generally known that
there ls no trouble to rid a house,
barn or building of rats and mice by
the use of Gtllett's Lye, It Ib doubtful
tf the article could be made as fast
as lt would be used for tbls purpose
alone. The process .connected with
using It Is very simple, tbe plan be-
tng to sprinkle a little ot the article
In and around the holes made by
these pests in floors, partitions, etc.
In addition to this it Is well to use
a thin piece ot board about a foot
square, or even smaller, and make a
complete circle of the Lye on the
board about a quarter of an inch
deep, and inside of the circle plnce
some meat or cheese. In endeavoring to get at the bait the feet of
the rats and mice will he burned and
tho whole colony, whether large or
small, will Immediately disappear
from the premises.
The plan Is worth trying, but the
good kind—Glllett'B Lye—should be
procured. Refuse the many cheap
Imitations and substitutes.

ST. VITUS DANCE
IN YOUNGCHILDREN
A Striking Example of iti Care
By the Tonic Treatment
St. Vitus dance Is the commonest
form of nervous trouble that afflicts
young children, because of the great
demand made on the body by growth
and development, and there is an added strain caused by study. U Is
when these demands become so great
that they Impoverish ths blood, and
the nerves fall to receive their full
supply of nourishment, that the nervous debility which leads to St. Vitus
dance begins.
The remarkable success of Dr. Williams' Pink -Pills in curing St. Vitus
dance should lead parents to give this
groat blood-building medicine to their
children at the first signs of the approach of the disease. Pallar, list-
lessneSB, Inattention, restlessness and
irritability are all symptomB which
early show that the blood and nerves
are falling to meet the demand upon
them. Here is proof of the power of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to cure this
trouble. Mrs. .1. W. Towns, Oshawa,
Ont., Bays:—"At tho age ot eleven
my daughter was attacked with St.
Vitus dance, and despite all we did
for her the trouble grew rapidly
So romr j-wflfl-es-wjKog scarcely able

unable to feed herself. When she
would lie down- she would be unable
to rise without assistance. Ab nothing was helping her I wrote a friend
whose daughter had been similarly affected, and she advised the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, which had cured
her child. I at once got a supply of
the Pills, and even the use of the
first box seemed to show an improvement. By the time five boxes were
used Bhe was completely cured and
has had no return ot the trouble
since." Sold by all medicine dealers

business (wholesale meat purveyor),

teaching him to write "Settled, John
Jinx," when giving a receipt for accounts paid to him.
The business Improved and pros-
psred, as likewise dtd the amatory
feelings between the widow and John,
the latter frultifylng ln a proposal
and acceptance of marriage. After
the usual preliminaries the ceremony
took place, followed by an adjournment to tho vestry to complete the

unmistakeably wrote as htB signature

write. While I was there a man
came in—evidently a regular customer.
I owe you some money, don't I? he
inquired.
The storekeeper went to the door
and turned it around so that the
back was visible. .
Yes, said he, you owe me for a
cheese.
Cheese! exclaimed the customer. I
don't owe you for any cheese.

Arizona Relics Indicate • Very Ancient Civilization
Still another "oldest city ln the
world" has been discovered. Wh,u
T. Hewitt Myrlng found vases in Peru
ln ruins which were said to be 7,000
years old It was Imagined that the rs-
malns of early civilizations had bean
pushed as far Into antiquity as th.-y
would ever go. But A. Lafave, a
mining engineer, has found the relics
ot a town in an Arizona tablelatd
near Phoenix, which he Insists are at
least 10,000 years old. The buildings are on a level stretch of count, y
where neither silt nor wash was possible and yet the ruins were covered
with ten feet of prairie dust which
the discoverer claims required age.i
to accumulate.
The buildings of sandstone show
great architectural skill and In tne
walls were found a box ot cotton bolls
and a sealed jar ot corn, both wall
preserved. The Arizona climate
does not permit tho growth of cottui
in the present age, so Mr. Lafave assumes that sufficient time must have
elapsed since the cotton which ho
found was grown to have wrought a
complete change in the character of
the couutry. This period he also
gauges as something like 10,000
yeara.
He Is satisfied that the ruins are
older than those of Ninevah or Babylon. He believes that the race which
built this, town was possessed of a
high civilization from the abundance
of artistically wrought pottery and
that I subsequently was broken up
by internal dlssentlons and possibly
degenerated Into the cliff dwelling
people.—Chicago Tribune.

This conic st is along the same lines as the
one which was so successful last year, except
that there are three times as many prim, and
therefore three times as many chances for
rach contestant lo win. Every farmer in Canada who uses "Canada" Cement is eligible to
compete. The conditions are such that large
and small users of cement have equal opportunities to win a $50 prize. »
The contest is divided into three cl»sie«, and thert
are first, second, third and fourth prizes (f-0, tli,

In addition to thus being divided into '
classes, so as to give small users of cement an
equal chance with those who use more, thc
Contest is alto divided into nine divisions, one
for each province. So you see you need only
to compete with the other farmers of your own
province, and not with those all over Canada.
Don't think that because you have never
used cement, you cannot win a prize. Many

Death Roll ot Alps
The number of fatalltleB due to

rapidly Increased during recent years.
According to an authentic compilation, ninety deaths were due to mountain climbing In the Swiss and Hal-
tan Alps during thc year ended December 1,1910. To the above figures
must be added eighty serious accidents, four of which had fatal effects.
The causes of the accidents were as-
cSnding mountain peaks without j
guide, landslides, detects lu the halt-
esnil (rope, and sudden setting lu of
fogs. For many yearn the English
havo had the greatest number of victims to ;iment. This year, however

Extermination of Rats and Mice
It it were generally known that
there ls no trouble to rid a house,
barn or building of rats and mice by
the use of Glllett's Lye, lt ls doubtful
lf the article could be made as fast
as It would be used for this purpose
alone. Thc process .connected with
using It ts very simple, tbe plan being to sprinkle a little of the article
In and nround the holes made by
these pests In floors, partitions, etc.
In addition to this lt ls well to use
a thin piece of board about a foot
square, or even smaller, and make a
complete circle of the Lye on the
board about a quarter of an Inch
deep, and inside of the circle place
sonic meat or cheese. In endeavoring to get at the bait the feet of
the rats aud mice will be burned and
tho whole colony, whether large or
small, will Immediately disappear
from tbe premises.
The plan Is worth trying, but the
good kind—Glllett's Lye—should be
procured. Refuse thc many cheap
Imitations and substitutes.

An Indianapolis public school teacher aome time ago, Bhe relates, received in her roam a small boy from
tlle Kentucky-Tennessee borderland,
and she set about teaching him the
intricacies of addition. She found he
could run up or down a column of
figures readily, but she could vt
make him understand how to "carry"
from one column to another when the
total was more than nine.
Finally the teacher called on one of
the little girls In the class and told
her she would give her a dime if she
could make the newcomer understand
the process. Next day the little girl
Called to claim the money.
How did you make him see lt so
quickly? inquired the teacher.
Oh, I told him when he got a number of two figures to put down the one
on the right and tote the other across,
and he knew what I meant right

Rare Roman Coins
Coins burled for 1,600 years came
to light at Domplerre, France, when a
farmer was levelling his yard. These
date from the Uallo-Roman period
and number about 2,800. Ot these
some 2,000 are silver and the rest
bronze. They hud beeu burled In an
earthenware vessel placed ln a
stone built hiding place. As to the
silver coins, these are In a very good
slate of preservation and are fine
specimens, but. the bronze coins suffered niiinh from the air. A number
of rare pieces were found ln the collection coming from the reigns of
some obscure Roman emperors of the
late period. The oldest Volns date'
from the Emperor Trajan (63 to 117
A.D.) and the most recent from Dio-
cletlan. It Ib thought that the coins
were burled about 315 A.D.

ST. VITUS DANCE
IN YiMGCHtlDItl
A Striking Example ol its Core
By the Tonic Treatment
St. Vitus dance ls the commonest
form ot nervous trouble that afflicts
young children, because of the great
demand made on the body by growth
and development, and there Ib an ad
ded strain caused by study. It ls
when these demands become so great
that they Impoverish the blood, and
the nerves tall to receive their full
supply of nourishment, that the nervous debility which leads to St. Vitus
dance begins.
The remarkable success of Dr. Williams' Pink Tills In curing St. Vitus
dance should lead parents to give this
great blood-bulldtng medicine to their
children at the flrst signs, of the approach of the disease. Pallar, list-
leBsneBs, Inattention, restlessness and
Irritability are all symptoms which
early show that the blood and nerves
are falling to meet the demand upon
them. Here ts proof of the power of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to cure this
trouble. Mrs. J. W. Towns, Oshawa,
Ont., says:—"At the age of eleven
my daughter was attacked with Rt.
Vitus dance, and despite all we did
for her the trouble grew rapidly
worse Soon she was scarcely able
to walk, her body and limbs Jerked
and trembled so, and Bhe waB quite
unable to feed herself. When she
would He down- Bhe would be unable
to rise without assistance. As nothing was helping her I wrote a friend
whose daughter had been Blmllarly affected, and Bhe advised the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink PHIb, which had cured
her child. 1 at once got a supply of
the Pills, and even the use of the
first box seemed to show an improvement. By the time five boxes were
used she was completely cured and
has had no return of the trouble
since." Sold by all medicine dealers

have not come up to representation. As a result the
conscientious seller has suffered for the shortcomings of
the unscrupulous. With a cooperative union here, this evil
would be remedied, because
the marketing of the products
would be under the supervision of one man, and expert
packers would be employed.
This would give the buyer a
responsible person to whom
to make claims for damages
in tho event the goods were
not as represented, and would
naturally result in an increased
demand, at better prices, for
the products of valley. This
would make the rancher more
prosperous. And it is for this
reason that the business man
should-take an interest in the
project, because when the
farmer prospers business
thrives and the entire" community is benefited. In these
days of keen competition, a
responsible selling agency for
the farmer and fruit grower
•is as essential as the traveling
salesman is to the wholesaler.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 19!ii
The movement to organize
a farmers' co-operative union
should receive the hearty support of the business men and
citizens generally, as well as
the ranchers of the valley.
Such an organization i.s badly
needed here. Co-operative
unions of this nature are now
being successfully operated in
Nelson and throughout the
Okanagan district. The principal objects of these organizations are, we understand,
to find the most profitable
market for the products ofthe
orchard and the farm; to see
that the products are properly
packed and prepared for market, and to guarantee their
quality to the purchaser.
Along these lines tliere is a
wide range for improvement
in this district, because heretofore every rancher has acted as 'his own selling a;,*ent;
and it is quite natural that
among so many there should
have been a few who have
been careless,   whose goods

Da. Forbes Winslow, of Loudon,
predicts that there will be more lunatics in the world than sane people
three hundred years hence. If the
farmers of the Northwest are given
wirier markets, they will all be mad
long before the expiration of that
time.
A Plymouth man has placed a 21-
year tilt! hen on the retired list. A
few years hence she will probably be
sold to some boardinghouse proprietor.
Kiwi George saluted the American
(lag when it was carried past him in
u military precession a few weeks
ago lf this incident had occurred in
I'hoenix the king would have been accused of disloyalty by the Tory organ
published in that camp.
It is said that the flrst municipal
building to be erected under the commission form of the governmant is the
new city hall of Des Moines. Esti
mated to cost 8350,000, it has been
completed for ((302,000. The commission form of government is evidently a failure. Even the Grand
Forks city council could have brought
the cost up to the estimate.
The West and the East
The farmers of tbe Northwest
blame in large measure the people of
the enst for tbe defeat of reciprocity,
and for preventing tbem from getting a larger market for tbe farm
products. Tbe newspapers of all
shades of political opinion are a
unit in this. The Winnipeg Tribune,
a good Tory paper, says: "We
have done a great deal for the east,
are doing a great deal, and will continue to help our brethern, but they
must be reasonable. Tbey must
not fight the west and try to prevent
our farmers from realizing tbe
best prices for tbe products of the
farm." Tbis may be taken as an
intimation that the battle for reciprocity is to be fought over again.
In tbe face uf this talk of east and
west, the Grand Trunk railway's
statement that 85CO families hud
moved from Ontario to the west tbis
year is very significant. The railway estimates tlmt these families
look witb tbem at least $f>00 apiece,
the aggregate being some £4,200,-
000 taken from old Ontario in only
one-half of one year. Tbis is another side of the quesijon und shows
lhe close relationship that exists between tbe two. The fact of tbe
mailer is, the west is essential to tbe
prosperity of the eust, jusl as the
cast is to tbe west, and it should be
the mdcavi r of bulb lo wt tk to
gellier fur the prosperity of ei ch —

Lack of Organization
The Ottawa Free Press naively admits that lack of organization rather
than lack of sound policy upon which
to appeal to the electorate is the present-day fault of the Liberal party in
Canada. It sounds a clarion call to
the provincial branches of the party
throughout the Dominion, expressing
the opinion that an election will take
place at an early date. Among other
pity observations, the Free Press
says:
"The probability of an early session
of the Dominion parliament to pass
an emergency contribution to the British navy, in view ofthe critical condition of the international situation in
Europe, should awaken the Liberal
party to the necessity of at once per*
fecting its organization for the next
election, whenever it may be called,

in time of peace is as true in matters political as it is in matters national, and if the Liberal party hopes I
fur success at the next elections, !
whether they come next year or the
year after, it is not too soen to begin
to prepare now for the fray.
''It uiay be said that this is midsummer and that there is no need to
worry until the fall, but the other
fellows are not adopting that policy.
They are on the job night aud day;
they miss no opportunity of carrying
out their propaganda. Why should
not the Liberals do the same?"
Straight Talk
In the editorial columns of the
Fruit Magazine ' for August the
"American Settler" and the "Dangers
of Life in Cities" are given prominence. The former is a plea for fair
treatment for the immigrant, with
logical arguments in his favor: ami the
latter seeks to emphasize the remarks
of Dr. Max Nordav, of Loudon, on
the subject of degeneration of the race
through too much ci-jy life.

It Makes a Difference
Mr. Borden will have the ''frenzied
jingoes" and the "mad imperialists"
on his trail if he does not watch out.
If Sir Wilfrid Laurier had said in one
place that Canada did not propose to
be an "adjunct" of Britain tind in another that Canada "was the 'master'
of 'her' own destiny," he would assuredly have been accused by the extremely loyal Tory organs of being a
"separatist," and possibly of several
more terribly things. It makes a difference who says things, and also how
they are said. There is a painful lack
of finish and a peculiar indefiniteness
in the premier's much-touted utterances.—Victoria Times.

The Beautiful Picture for Grand Forks Sun and Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star Subscribers
this Season.   r^An Inspiration of Love ahd
Affection—(ji Picture that will be like a    -
Member  of the  Family—A  Daily
Study for Old and Young
rpill'_ Family Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to be
I the greatest and best family and farm paper on the continent, hae on
many occasions given its readers most delightful {premium picture,
but this season they have secured wbat is beyond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper reader.. It is entitled "Home
Again" nnd describes a lunching but joyful incident between tw.i friends I
who meet after anxious separation.
t'Laddie," a collie dog, tuinous for his beauty and gentleness, winners
nf mnny prizes nt dug snows, the pride ol Ihe family und   neighborhood, l
bus been stolen, and after tunny days' absence he escapes one night  from
his captor and returns bume mm snowy winter's morning with  lhe rope
which he broke in his struggles fur freedom daiigliiii. from his collar.
His familiar hark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and I
she throws her arms around horvtriistv playinule's neck with cries of joy]
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally I
delighted to be "Home Again," ami answers her welcome by putting hit
paws on her shoulder anil 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, n womnn of soft curves, lender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy w tb 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!
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walls of any home. .s
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Klsley, famous for!
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Horns Again" on heavy plate pnper 2'2x*2!t
inches all readv for framing will be mailed FKEh. to every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Star for 1012
The small sum of $1.50 will secure the two papers for a full year in-:
I finding a.copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
[easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at thut price.
Every home in the Boundary should get the big I1..50 worth this;

SAMPLE MARKET
_F0R GRAIN
How it Will Work Against the Bea
Interests of the Fanners oi the
Canadian Northwest
*** ______      ■*
The efforts of the dealers In wheat
knd other sniiin to establish a sample market In Winnipeg are being
made by men who desire and who
appear to be determined to regain
the control ot the grain trade they
held for many years, but which they
have now lost. Selfish motives are
tho prime moving principle that govern all the steps they are now taking.
Let us examine the true inwardness
of the matter.
There are only about Beventy-seven
days from the time the crop com-1
uiences to mova, in the fall of the!
year, until the close of navigation at
the head of th.' Lakes. The grain
crop of Western Canada ls taken
from Fort William and shipped across
the Great Lakes by boat to the eastern markets. After the close of navigation the grain grown Ih the west
which has not gone across the Lakes
by boat must necessarily go by rail
routes to the Atlantic ports either
around the north shore ot Lake Superior or through the United States.
Under the proposed system ot
sampling, every carload ot grain passing through Winnipeg on all the different lines of railway will be subject to a wait of twenty tour hours,
except Sundays and holidays when
the wait will be twice that long.
The plan of thoBe in favor of a
sample market is that when a carload
ot grain arrives ln Winnipeg a sample is taken from tt. and sent up to
the Grain Exchange and the grain disposed of on that sample.   Immediately after it has been been disposed ot
the railroad ls notified and thc car
sent forward to Its destination which
may be East to Fort William, Eastern
Ontario or the Maritime Provinces, or
to points ln the Western   Provinces,
where the grain Is used for local consumption.    Thus every car arriving
in Winnipeg would have to remain ln
the railway yards until the grain was
sold.    This would mean a delay of at
least one full day.
The delay In transit ot cars arriving ln Winnipeg on Saturdays would
be much longer, as the samples taken
from cars arriving at, eleven o'clock
or later on lhat day would not reach
the grain exchance ln order to be disposed ot before lt closed for thai

BISCUITS MUST BE FRESH TO BE PALATABLE

Because the MOONEY system is so perfect that every biscuit ia shipped

day, because on Saturdays   the   exchange closes at one o'clock.   There-1
fore the samples trom the cars arriving ln Winnipeg at eleven o'clock
and also every car arriving between
that hour and the hour   of   opening
of the grain exchange   on   Monday
morning, would have   to   remain   ln
Winnipeg until Monday evening. That
Is, on Monday afternoon the orders
tor forwarding of cart to their destination wonld begin to pour ln to the
railway companies, and all the cars
which'had arrived after eleven o'clock
on Saturday morning would not start
to move until late Monday afternoon.
It Is ot the flrst Importance, tn fact
It ls Imperative,   that   cars   Bhould

for   another   shipment.      Anything
that would tend to prevent prompt

HOW TO RENOVATE PARASOLS,
1 Dainty Touches That Simple Needle,
work Will Effect.
It your last summer parasols art
too dilapidated to use get them out
and study their possibilities. Some
whose covering is only soiled, not laded, may be cleaned and freshened by
embroidery or a covering ot .net oi
chiffon; others may need new tops.
The latter can be added at home by
a skilled needlewoman, but i. distrustful of one's ability do the embroidery first and take the frame' and
covering to a professional to bt
mounted.
Remember that the distance between
spokes may vary, so in removing the!
cover mark a certain spoke with aj
thread and number the sections from
that. In this way it will be easy to!
get the new cover in its riglit position. |
Cut each section from the old one, ]
allowing a trifle more for seams if tha
edges have been cut. Baste carefully,
fit to tiie frame, then sew the seams!
firmly, and the cover is ready tor its
embroidery or_.fnrt._er decoration.
This may be done before mounting,
or alter the cover is firmly tacked te|
the frame. When a design is detached ,
each section can be worked before the j
fianels are basted together.  For braid-1
ng it is easier to mount the cover
than work with both hands, as on a
standard frame.
A plain white linen parasol may be
given a decided air by working in the
panels sprays of flowers tn eyelet cm-'
broidery and outline for the seams nr
entirely in .olid embroidery.   An ef-!
{active parasol of white pongee has
bunches of wild carrot worked in the
panels.  Two sixes of sprays are used,
a bold one in every alternate panel,
with a single flower on the others.
The flower panicles are worked   in
Frenoh knot in heavy Roman floss, I
the  foliage  done  in  slanting satin
stjteh. , |
A parasol of pale gray linen was 1
given a fine inch border of deep rose I
sewed on the outside of tlie parasol, j
The joining was concealed by a line
ot wild roses worked in several tones
of pink with pale yellow centres and
green stems.
Any linen or silk parasol could be
changed by adding a similar border
in a deeper tone of its own shade or
in a contrasting color. Harmonize the
two sections by a conventional design worked in (elf tones. A violet
linen cover could have a deep purple
border and vines ot clematis worked
in purple thades.   ,,

Wanted Silk Hate Abolished.
Some years ago an attempt wat
made by certain members of the municipal council of Cburteuil, France,
to make the wearing of a top hat illegal, the grounds tet forth for the
measure being that the tight of a silk
hat is a humiliation to those who
cannot afford to wear one, that it is
both unbeautiful and unnecessary as
an article of attire and also, chiefly,
because it is worn mostly by aristocrats who live by the sweat of the
poor and militated against equality
among citizens of the republic. A fine
of 5 francs was the proposed penalty
for wearing the condemned headgear,
but the "topper" found friends at
court, and the measure was rejected.

It was a perfect orgy of kissing.
They knocked at doors, and little,

They went to the workhouse and

A Deathbed Marriage.
It is recorded lhat the tenth Lord
Strathmore married on July 2, 1820,
Mary, daughter of .1. Milner, of Stain-
drop, Durham, but died the day after
Ihe wedding. A romantic story it
associated with Ihis statement. Mary
Milner was a beautiful girl of humble
birth. The earl went through a false
form of marriage with her, but she
lived with him as his wife in all innocence, Iheir only son being sent to
Eton as Lord Glamis. On his death-
lied lhe earl confessed that he had
acted dishonorably, but said he would

confident that Parliament would ratify,

One of his last decisions was that

placed upon the railway companies
the onus of justifying higher freight
rates in the west than those prevailing
in the east of Canada.
He last sat in the commission st

He presided with his usual force and
ability, holding counsel well in hand;
' and expediting the business before
him. One matter which came up waa
an application from a citizen in Locust Hill, who bad several complaints
to make about the railway coinpany.
• "This man," said an official, "haa
written about twenty letters making
all sorts of complaints."
a "Oh well," said the chairman smilingly, "he is evidently an Irishman
and he is entitled to write all the
letters he wants to."
