THE CITY COUNCIL
Employment of More Help in
Oity Office firings on
Warm Discussion
The mayor and all the alddermen
were present at the council meeting
on Monday evening.
Mary Scanlan, of Nelson, in reply to an enquiry, offered to sell
the lot at the head of Bridge to the
city for 1300. The city desired
this property for a gravel pit and to
improve the grade of tbe street.
Ordered filed.
Colin Campbell sent in his resignation as city clerk, to be effective on
June 15. The mayor explained that
the council had held an extra session last week, at which Mr. Camp-
hell had been suspended from office.
The resignation was accepted.
A heated discussion ensued between Aid. Atwood and Davis in
reference to the employment of Mr.
Campbell, or some one else, to get
out the assessment roll. Aid. Davis
said that while he did not specially
favor Mr. Campbell, the work had
to be done as expeditiously as possible, and be was of the opinion that
Campbell was the only available
man. Aid. Atwood was very emphatic in his.opposition to tbe employment of Mr. Campbell in any
capacity. He did not want men in
the city office wbo could not keep
sober. The city office, be said, bad
already coat the ratepayers twice
ai much as it should have done this
year, and it was time to get it on a
business basis. On motion of Aid.
Davis and Lequime, the council de-
cil decided to employ Mr. Campbell
to get out the assessment, and to
give him a month's salary for bis
services.
Aid. Davis went out to hunt up
Mr. Campbell, in order to ascertain
if he would accept the work. A few
minutes later Mr. Davis informed
tbe council, by pbone, that Mr.
Campbell had agreed to get out the
assessment roll for 1125.
A large number of accounts
against the city were ordered to be
paid.
Tbe clerk was authorized to sell
an odd lot of brick at the rate of f 16
per 1000.
Tbe council decided to enforce
the law against discharging firearms
inside tbe city limits.

NEWS OF THE CITY
New Method  of   Raising
Strawberries Claimed to
Be a Success
A. B. Docksteader, of Nelson,
census commissioner for the Boundary and Kootenay, visited the city
this week on business in connection
with hie office.
Here is a method of raising straw
berries which a Washington farmer
practices with great success, according to Geo. S. Hendeeson, the puro
food inspector, who was in the city
last Sunday: In the spring he covers the ground witb a thick layer of
clean straw. This prevents the berries
from coming in contnet witb tbe
ground,and keeps tbem cleak. After
the crop has been harvested, he cuts
the plants off close to the ground
with a scythe, and when the tops
are thoroughly dry he burns them,
together with the straw. By following this method of cultivation he
harvests an immense crop of berries
each year, and the necessity of replanting every three or four years is
obviated, as the plants treated in
this manner will produce good crops
for an indefinite number of years.
Any member, by making application to the secretary of the Farmers' institute, can now obtain stumping at the low price of 10 cents per
pound, plus first-class freight charges
from Vancouver. The provincial
government has entered into an
ogreement with the Hamilton Powder company for large quantities of
powder, making it possible to supply the powder to members of farmers who wish to clear land at the
above reasonable price. The powder must be paid for when ordered.
The West Kootenay Power &
Light company's pumping station
and power house, erected near Cooper Bro.'» ranch for irrigation purposes, will be tested next Tuesday
afternoon. Parties interested in
irrigation are invtted to inspect the
pumping system on this occasion,
and to make a trip to the Campbell
and Traunweiser ranches for the
purpose of witnessing the flow of
water. Mr. Gibson will be present
to explain tbe workings of tbe first
electric irrigating plant installed in
the valley.
fice, nnd it is therefore not strange if
a few news items should escape his
eagle eye. It is the desire of The
Sun, however, to print all the local
news, and any items handed into
the office by its friends will always
be appreciated.
At an adjourned Bitting of the
county court on Mondayi his

The semi-annual closiug exercises
of the Grand Forks public school
were held tbis morning, commencing at 10 o'clock and continuing for
about an hour. A large number of
parents and visiting friends availed
themselves of the opportuity of seeing what progress the pupils bad
made during the term.
Mr. and Mrs. Alex Miller, of Vancouver, spent a couple of days in
the city tbis week. Mr. Miller wsb
one of the early boomers of Grand
Forks.
For obvious reasons the editor of

The case of McNeil & Henniger
vs. McArthur came up before Judge
Brown at the adjourned sitting of
the county court on Monday, but

Cochrane appeared for plantiifs, and
A, C. Sutton for defendant.
The wooden pipe for the irrigation systems in the Kettle valley
arrived in the city on Monday. The
electric motors, which weie shipped
from Hamilton, Ont., three weeks
ago, are may be expected to arrive
any day now.
New Kettle valley potatoes are in
the market thiB week. The old 8100

Reported Settlement
A dispatch to the Nelson Daily
News from Calgary says it is reported there on good authority that
a settlement of the southern Alberta
and Crow's Nest Puss coal strike has
been arranged. The operators have
agreed to offer the day mine workers an increase of 7 per cent nnd
other concessions, and it is under-
Stood that the strikers have agreed
to accept the offer, lt is believed
that the strike will lie declared oil at
the beginning of the week.
The dispute giving rise to the
strike was primarily one of wages, j
but also involved tbe question of thel
closed shop. Following ii conference at Calgary on March '2 between
the operators and the representatives
of the men, wbich proved abortive,
the operators' u timatum was an increase of 5.60 per cent to all classes.
The expiring agreement had a
minimum wage for miners of f'.i fur
a day of eight hours, bank to bank,
which the men claim in Alberta frequently worked out at 12,50, owing
to various sonditinns. The men lirst
asked lor tlio scale of Montana antl
Washington, which is 18.80 for a.
day of eight hours, faco to face, or
on the bank to bank scale about
So.tiO. They receded from this to
an increase of 1-1 per cent to all
classes, or 13,371 for miners.
The operators' oiler worked out at
$3.16%, For tbe lowest paid work
the Montana scale its 13,76 for a day
of a day of eight hours, or 341 ccnt*1
an hour. The operators' offer worked
out at S8 7-10 cents per hour, the
average day being ten hours. The
expiring scale -for fanmen was
J'.Mi'.'i for a day of twelve hours,
with lampmen similar.
USES OF WATER
Professor Allen Will Lecture
in This City on Irrigation Problems
The department of agriculture announces a series of supplementary
Farmers' Institute meetings, which
will be conducted by Profeaaor R.
W. Allen, superintendent of the
Umatilla irrigation experiment st*-
tion at Hermiston, Ore., assisted by
B. Hoy, assistant horticulturist, of
Vernon.
It is the intention of the department to make Professor Allen'*
demonstration in tbe application of
water practical and adapted to local
conditions. Professor Allen will
have sullieient time to acquaint himself with the problems of each district, and it is expected that much
good will accrue from his demonstrations and the evening meetings,
especially as there is great need for
practical information on this subject
in this valley.
The meetings in Grand Forks will
be held on July 27, afternoon and
evening.
In the afternoon Professor Allen
will give a demonstration of the
relative advantages of deep and
shallow furrows, and the proper distances apart for furrows, the percolation of water through the soil, and
tbe economical application of water.
He will also discuss many ot the
problems which come with the distribution and use of water. In the
evening Professor Allen will lecture
on the broader aspects of irrigation,
particularly tbe relation of irrigation
water to soils and the problems of
seepage, alkali, etc. Tbese lectures
will be illustrated by lantern slides,
showing thc application of water by
different methods, and general irrigation scenes in Oregon. In the
evening Mr. Hoy will also lecture on
timely culturul topics for orchard*
ists, including thc use of cover
crops, summer pruning the handling
of fruit.
The department of agriculture, in
making arrangements for these
meetings, expects that tbe importance of the subject, and tbe high
standing of tbe principal speaker
will result in a large attendance of
those intimately interested in the
application of water.

CHAPTER XV.
Felix Zary
It would hav" been u comparativeli
easy matter for Die two friends tc
have slipped out oi the house before
the crpple came down the stairs accompanied by the young man called
Charles Evors. The front door wai
still open and tliere wus no one to bar
Ihe way. Then it suddenly occurred
to Gurdon that by so doing they
would betray the secret of the moveable panel which communicated with
the house next door.
"It would never do to go away like
this," he said hurriedly. "Besides, it
is more than likely that we shall want
to use that entrance again. We shall
have to run the risk of losing sight
of the cripple; anything is better than
leaving that panel open for the ser-
vants to discover in the morning."
Venner could see for himself at once
that there was no help for it, so with'
out further discussion on the matter
the two men hurried down the stairs
and then darted through the hole into the house next door. It was only
the work of a moment to replace the
panel, but hardly had they done bo
before they heard a confused murmur
of voices on the other side. Gurdon
pressed his back to the pahel until the
noise of the voiees ceased.
"That was a pretty cloBe call," he
said. "Give me the mouldings and I
will try to make them secure without
any unnecessary noise. I daresay *e
can get the nails to fit the same holes.
Anyway there must be no hammering, or we shall he pretty sure t.)
rouse the suspicions of the people
next door."
It was perhaps fortunate that the
mouldings fitted so well, for Gurdon
managed to work the nails into the
original holes and complete a more
or less workmanlike Job to his own
satisfaction.
"That's a good job well done,"
Venner said.
"Yes, but what do you do it for?
In fact, what are you two gentlemen
doing  here  nt  all?"
Thc voice came with a startling
suddenness. It was an . exceedingly
clear, melodious voice, ' yet witb a
steely ring to it The two friend.,
wheeled round sharply to find themselves face to face with an exceedingly tall individual whose length was
almost grotesquely added to by the
amazing slimness of his figure. In
that respect he was not nt all unlike
Ihe type of human skeleton which
one expects to find in a travelling
circus or some show of that kind.
The man, moreover, was- dressed in
deep black, which ndded to his solemnity. He had an exceedingly long,
melancholy fnce, on both sides of
whicli hung a iiin.-s of oily-looking
black hair; his nose, too, wns long
and thin, antl a long drooping moustache concealed his mouth. On the
whole his appearance wns redeemed
from tin? grotesque by nn extraordinary pair tif black eyes, which were
round nnd lnrge as those of n Persinn
cat. Despite the man's exceeding
thinness, he conveyed n certnin suggestion of strength. At that moment
he had it handkerchief between his
fingers, and Gurdon could see thnt
Jljs wrists were supple and plinble ns
if they hnd been made of Indin rubber. Gordon hnd heard that Rort of
bunds before described ns conjurer's
hands. As he looked lit them he half
expected to see the handkerchief dis-
nppi'iir nml nn orange or something of
that nature take ils place. Then the
stranger coolly walked across the hall
nntl turned tip another of the lights.
He seemed to l>" perfectly nt home
untl conveyed a curious impression to
the visitors thnl he expected* lo find
them  there.
"I b"g to remind you Hint ynn
hnve not yet answered my question."
lie Raid,   "Willi! nre yuu doing here?"
"■Lei me answer your question with
another," Venner suid. '"Who nre
you nud whnt mny you be doing
here?"
The man smiled in n peculiar fnsh-
ion. His big black eyes seemed to
radiate Sparks; they were luminous
mid full of n vivid fury, though, nt
the same time the long norselike face
never Ior n moment lost its look of
profound dejection. They might have
been eyes gl 'liming iK'hind a dull
painted musk.
"Wt* will come to that presently,"
he snid. "For the moment,the mention of my nnme must content you.
It is just possible that you huve heard
the name of Felix Zary."
Venner antl Gurdon fairly started.
The nnme of Felix Zary wns familiar
to them, but only during the Inst
three-quarters of nn hour. In fnct,
that wns the iiiiiiii* of the mnn as to
whose whereabouts Fenwiok bnd ben
so anxious. Here was nnnther element  in the mystery,  whicli.    up to
iIur moment, had not advanced very
fnr towards solution.
"I hava hoard the nnme before,"
Venner snid. "but only quite recently—within tile last hour, in fnct."
"Oh, yes,"   the stranger   snid,   "I
know exactly what you mean. You
probably heard it next door when
you were listening so intently to the
conversation between my friend Chas.
Le Fenu the cripple, and that scoundrel who calls himself Fenwick. He
is exceedingly anxious to know win r_
I am, though without the smallest
intention of benefitting me. And before long, bis curiosity will be gratified., but not in the way .>-* thinks."
The latter words came Irom till
speaker's lips with a spitting hiss,
such as a cat emits in the presence
of u dog. The great round black eyes
added intensity to the threat and
rendered the feline simile complete.
The prophecy boded ill for Fenwick
when at length he and Felix Zary
oanie face to face.
"I see my conjecture is quite right,"
the stranger went on. "And as to
you gentlemen, I have nsked your
nnmes merely ns a mutter of courtesy.
As a matter of fact, I know perfectly
well who you are—you are Mr. Gerald
Venner and Mr. James Gurdon. But
there is one thing I don't know and
that is why you have thrust yourselves into this diabolical business.
You must be brave men, or absolutely unconscious of the terrible danger
you are running.   It either of you are
friend of Fenwicks "
"Not for a moment," Venner cried.
"You pay us a poor compliment indeed if you take us to be in any way
friendly with that scoundrel."
"And yet you are here," Zary went
on. "You are spying on the movements of my friend, Le Fenn. You
have contrived to obtain possess-on
of the keys ot hs house ior no 'jiuer
purpose.    Why?"
Venner pnus*.*l before he nmrvroJ
the question. He did not r .cognize
the right of this man to put him
through a cross examination, li.d-iitl,
it Beemed to him, the less he said tlw
better. Perhaps Zary aaw something
of what was going on.in his mina,
for his big black eyes smiled, though
the dejected visage remuined the
same.
"I see you do not trust me," he
said. "Perhnps you are riglit to be
cautious. Let me ask you another
question, assuring you at the same
time that I am the friend of Charles
Le Fenu and his sisters, and that if
necessary I will lay down my life to
save them from trouble. Tell me.
Mr. Venner, why nre you so interested in saving the girl who pusses for
Fenwick's daughter from her miserable position?   Tell me."
Zary came it step or two closer to
Venner and looked down into his 'a.«
with a searching yearning expression
in those magnetic black ey.'s. The
uppcttl to Venner was irr..sis''ul_*.
The truth rose to his lips; it refused
to be kept back.
"Because," he snid slowly, "because
she is my wife."
A great sigh of relief came from
Zury.
"I am glad of that," he snid. "Exceedingly glud. And yet I had suspected something of the kind. It is
good for me to know that I nm with
friends, and thnt you two nre only
actuutetl by the best motives. For
some days now I huve hnd you under
close observation. I followed you here
to-night; indeed, I was in the house
when you removed those panels. As
a matter of fnct. Mr. Gurdon's first
involuntary visit here abaolutely ruined a carefully laid plan of mine for
getting Mark Fenwick into my hands.
But I will tell you Inter on all about
the myatery of thn furnished dining-
room and how nnd why the furniture
vnnlshed so strangely. When I followed you here to-night I wns quite
prepared to shoot you both if necessary, but some strange impulse came
over me to speak to you nnd nsk you
whnt you were doing. I, am rather
glad I did, becnuse I should not like
to have a trngedy on my hands. Now
would you like lo come with me ns
fur as my own rooms, where I shall
he In a position to throw a little lignt
upon a dnrk plnce or two?"
Venner and Gurdon clutched enger-
ly ut the suggestion. Without 'ur-
ther words they pnssed into thc stt'et
nnd would have walked down the
steps hatl not Znry detained them.
"One moment." he whispered.
"Hung buck in the shallow of the portico. Don't you see thnt there arc
two or three men on the steps of Hi**
house next door. Ah. I enn henr the
voice of that scoundrel Fenwick. If
only he knew how close to him I nm
at the present moment! But let ns
listen,—we may hear something
useful."
It was very quid in thc Squnre for
the hour was lute,    nnd    the    voices
front the portico enme clenr nnd distinct  to the listeners' enrs.
"Whnt   is the  good  of  it?" one  of
the voices suid. "Why on earth can't
you wnit iill morning? La Fenu litis
got clenr awny. end there isn't much
chance of ditching him ngnin in n
hurry. It wns one ot the coolest
things I've seen for n long tini" "
"On, he doesn't luck bruins, or
pluck either," Fenwick said. "I
should hnve been proud of n trick like
thut myself. I oeghl to hnv" poisoned him when I had the chance. I
ought to have got him ont of the wny
without delay. But it teemed such n
snfe thing to kidnap him nnd hide
him in his own house, where we could
go on with our work without the lcnst
dnnger or interruption from those no-
cursed police. And then, when bit"
plnyeil into our bunds nnd we got
hold of Evors us well, it looked ns if
everything wns going our wny. How
you fools ever contrived to let him
get the upper hand of you is more
thnn I can understand."
"ft whs Joiies; fault," another voice
growled. "He forgot the drug nnd
we rnit clenn out of it. Then, I suppose, we got interested over n gnme
of curds, und one way and another,
Evors managed to get six or seven
hours sleep without having any of
that stuff inside him. Bless me, if
it wasn't- all like a dream, guv'ner.
There we were interested in our cards
and before we knew Where we were
our heads were banged together, and
I was lying on the floor thinking that
the end of the world had come. That
fellow has the strength of the very
devil himself."
"Poor, weak creature," Fenwick
sneered.
"Weak-minded perhnps, and easiiv
led," the first speaker said. "But
there is not much the matter with
him when it conies to fists."
"We can't stop chnttering here all
night," Fenwick said. "It is nil very
well for you men, who don't cure so
long as you have got something to
ent and drink. You would he quite
satisfied to sit like n lot of hogs In
Le Fenu's house, but he'll certninly
be back in the morning with aome infernal scheme or other for getting the
best of us. Don't you see It is impossible for me nny longer to play the
part of tenant of n furnished house,
now that the owner of the house is
at large again? It is a very fortunate
thing in a ray, too, that I can pass
nil you people off ns my servants.
Now get nwny at once and do as I
tell you. As for me, I am going to
take n cab as fur ns the old place hy
the side of the river. In an hour's
time I hope to be on my way to Canterbury. Now, are you quite sure you
nil know what to do? It's con'ound-
edly awkward to have one's plans'
upset like this, but a clever man always has an alternative scheme on
hand and I've got mine. There, that
will do.    Be off at once."
"Thnt's nil very well, guv'nor," another voice said. "It is easy enough
to put the front door on the latch nnd
'.urn out of the crib, leaving it empty,
but what about the girl in the white
dress? I ain't very scrupulous ns a
rule, but it seems rather cruel to leave
the poor kid behind and she not more
than half right in her head."
"Devil fly awny with the girl,"
Fenwick said passionately. "We can
pick her up nt any time we want to.
Besides, I think I con see a wny to
arrange for her and a method of getting her out of the house within the
next hour. It was no had thing for
men who get their living ns we do
when some genius invented motor
cars. Now do go along or we shall
never finiah."

INDIGESTION RIGHTLY
CURED STAYS CURED
NOT BY TREATING   THE   SYMPTOMS BUT BY TONING UP
THE STOMACH TO DO
NATURE'S WORK
Indigestion should not be neglected
for by depriving the body of its proper nourishment it grows steadily
worse. Neither stimulating medicines, which ruin the already weak
stomach by making it work beyond
its strength, should be used, nor pre-
digested foils, which do not excite a
flow of the digestive fluids, and by
disuse cause the stomach to grow
weaker. Nowhere is the tonic treatment with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
more clearly useful. Its principle is
to enable the stomach to do its own
work by building up the blood and
giving tone to the nerves. When these
are once more restored to their normal health indigestion disappears
and the cure is permanent. In proof
of theBe statements we give the experience of Mrs. Paul Gannon, Star
City, Sask., who says: "For more
than a year I suffered with all the
terrible pains of indigestion, and my
life was one of the greatest misery.
It did not seem to make any difference whether I ate or not, the pains
were always there, often accompanied
by a severe bloating and a belching
of wind. I did not even get relief at
night, and sometimes hardly got a
bit of sleep in my misery. I tried
many remedies said to cure indigestion, but they did me not one particle of good and I fully expected that
I would always be afflicted in this
way. At this time my brother came
home on a visit and he urged me to
try Dr. Williams' Pin Pills and got
six boxes for me. By the time I had
i taken four boxes I began to improve
j and could eat with some relish. I
j wns greatly cheered, and continued
{taking the Pills until nil traces of
[ thc trouble had disappeared and I
could once more eat all kinds of food
without the smallest, inconvenience.
We have since used Dr. Willams'
! Pink Pills in our family for other
troubles. I am so firmly convinced
I of their virtue as a family medicine
I that I have no hesitation in rccom-
j mending them to all weak, ailing
| people.

"How long would it take eight men,
working ten hours a day to build a
house SO feet high, if they built an
inch an hour?
For hours Alexander pondered over
this perplexing problem. Every time
he got a different answer. At last, in
desperation, he took it to his iather.
"Wot!" ronred the father, as he
read the question. "Do you mean ter
tell me they set yer this sum at your
skule? It's outrageous! It's abominable! Don't you do it me lad. You
leave it alone. I'll write yer n letter,

Well satisfied, Alexander laid his
task aside. And in the mornng his
teacher was presented with the following irate epistle:
"Sir,—I refuse to let mi son do the
sum you gave him hirst nite, as It
loks to me to be a slur on the eight-

When  Mme.  Sembrich  Get a Stagt
Gown For a Song.
Whenever I think of my early operatic experience I delight to recall a
little dressmaker in Dresden who literally sold me a stage gown for a
song. I had made my first appearance and was well received. Then
word came that I was to appear next
as Violetta in "Traviata." Now, in
Germany the curious custom obtains
of furnishing costumes to the male
singers and obliging the women to
dress themselves. At that stage in
my career a role calling for several
elaborate evening gowns meant a serious drain on my resources. At the
same time I realised that appropriate
dressing was vitally essential to my
success.    Bravely   I   began  my  bar-
Sain hunting, but the prices were Iar
eyond my fears. I was forced to
resign myself to do the best I could
from my own scant wardrobe. But
no ingenuity could encompass a suitable ball gown for the third act. I
started on another round of the shops,
and good fortune bore me this time
to a smart looking little place. The
proprietress recognized me and waa
most courteous. Just the gown I
wanted was the flrst dress she produced. My voice trembled aa I asked the price. She named a figure that
put it as effectually beyond my reach
as the top of Mont Blanc.
"What can you pay, madam?" she
aaked gently as she read the disappointment in my face.
Hesiatingly I named a sum less
than half the price she demanded.
"On one condition the gown ia
yours," she said.
"And what is that?" I asked breathlessly.
"I have a father who is bedridden,"
ahe said. "Never was there a greater
lover of music. Only last night he
was fretting because he might never
hear the little Sembrich, of whom I
have told told him so much since
your debut here. Come and sing an
aria for him and the gown is yours
at your own price."
I kissed her with brimming eyes,
and the bargain was struck. That
night, with my husband as accompanist, I went to the home of the old
gentleman and sang for him, not one,
but many arias. That was the first
and only time I ever got a stage gown
for a song.—Mme. Sembrich in New

Good Luck to the Deceased.
A former consul general at Shanghai tells oi the interest evinced by a

ceremony of an English couple there.
At the conclusion of the usual western rites incident upon the departure
of the happy couple lor their honeymoon the Celestial sought the consul
with tbis question:
"Why do occidentals throw rice after the departing couple?"
"I am not aware of the precise origin or significance ot the custom,"
banteringly replied the official. "All
I know is that it'a meant for good

"Then why," demanded the Chineae
triumphantly, "do aot you westerners

Sharks' Eggt.
The egga ot fishes are usually small,
soft and inconspicuous. The most remarkable point about them ia the extraordinary number laid by the individual. A single cod lays as many
as 9,000,000 eggs. Sharks lay eggs
which are large in site, few aa to
numbers and are deposited singly instead oi in masses. These eggs consist of a dark-colored leathery envelope and are usually adorned with
frills, horns or long-twisted tendrils.
These appendages serve the purpose of
keeping the egg case supported among
the branches of seaweeds, thus preserving the embryo from the damage
it would sustain were thc egg carried
hither and thither by tlie wave*.—

Dawn ol Civilization.
In the light of the latest facts it appears that Babylonia was in a comparatively higli state ol civilization
about 6,000 years before the Christian
era. At about that time from the east
came Babylonian settlers, who fount
their way toward the west and, finally
halting to the northwest of the Ked
Sea, ooloniied the region on either
aide oi the Nile. When these colonists arrived from Babylonia they were
not wiid barbarians, but, as we know
from the most learned Egyptians, possessed great ability in certain arts—
in a word, were civilized. Thus Kgypt,
iong supposed to be the mother of
civilization, must hereafter give way
to the laud uf the Euphrates.

FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 1911
Victoria is considering the commission form of municipal government. This appears to be the only
way to govern cities iu order to obtain business methods in civic man
agement and to insure an economical
expenditure of the ratepayers' money.
The change to this advanced form of
municipal management is badly needed in a number of cities, including
Grand Forks.
Considerable dissatisfaction is expressed regarding the distribution of
Coronation day honors to Canadian
citizens. Yet it does not appear that
all the titles were misplaced. No
information has been received up to
date that Hon. Mr. Bowser h bringing back a knighthood in his suit
ense.
According! to the United States
senate, the reciprocity agreement will
ruin the American farmer. The Conservatives in the Ottawa parliament
say it will ruin the Canadian farmer.
The special interests are resouceful
cusses. No further comment is re'
quired.
By scrupulous cleanliness and a
strict enforcement of sanitary laws,
the fly nuisance has been entirely
eradicated from a Texas city, and the
mayor of that town now feels safe iu
offering a reward of 81000 for every
Musi's, doiiie.tica, caught within the
city limits.
One alderman, at the council meet
in;,' last Monday night, stated that
the city office had already cost the
city double what it shuuld have cost
during the present year. The alderman was modest in limiting his statement to one department of tlie city.
It it reported that a company is

papers in a number of British Columbia tewns. If tlie stock rises above

It may therefore hu taken for granted
that tint dispatch from England, saying thut Sir Wilfrid Laurier will appeal tu the country immediately, if
uot sooner, is groundless.

PEN POINTS
In general, pride ia at the bottom
of all great mistakes.
He who complains much will
have much to complain about.
Half the trouble in the world is
caused by garden fences being so
low.
Blue blood and red noses run in
families, and often in the same
families.
Some men's wishbones are very
willing, but their backbones are
very weak.
The time to make the harvest
count is at the time of ploughing
and seeding.
Jealousy is an unfortunate trait of
character. It mars all that is noble
and good in life.
Before you condemn any man for
his misdeeds, ask yourself what you
could do if you had that man's
brain.
Truth, like silver, must be not
only mined, but also refined, separated from dross, before its value can
be appreciated.
The man who fails to believe in
his own ability closes the door of opportunity, and turns the key in its
lock when he thinks he can't.
The man who believes that he can
do a thing and goes to work with
patience, perseverance and determination is pretty sure to get there,
The successes of the world, her
cities, her machines, her arts and

NEWSPAPER COMMENT
It is noteworthy that little is said
in the Toronto press regarding the
visit of Senator L. Melvin-Jones to
Batavia, New York,where the Masaey-
Harris company has invested millions
in an American plant. The senator
is not cartooned as wearing pants or
coat of the stars and stripes pattern;
neither is the reciprocity agreement
held responsible for the great purchase
in Batavia, because such a statement
would be glaringly false. Advocates
of freer trade are not criticizing Senator Jones or the Massey-Harris company. It is one of the sountl British
principles that men have the right to
invest money legitimately where they
please. Britishers have invested hundreds of millions in the United States,
and they are none the less British because of their investments. But the
point does arise, that if our manufacturers go into the United States and
invest millions of Canadian money,
made out of the profits of the sale of
their goods to Canadian farmers, under
what process of reasoning are they
justified in claiming that our farmers
have no right to do business with
90,(.0\000people,save under great restriction and heavy taxation? We do
not hear it charged that Senator Jones
is an annexationist, or that Lloyd-
Harris is an annexationist. In fact,
we hear nothing but praise from the
protectionists for Mr. Harris, because
he is one of the Liberal M. F.'s opposing the reciprocity pact. We all
know why Mr, Harris opposes the
pact. He likes the high fence. He
thinks it is splendid for a man of his
intelligence and capital to do business
in the United States antl for his company to spend two or three millions
there, but it is quite another matter
for the farmers who have wheat to
sell, The inconsistency of the pro
teutionists is glaring and ridiculous.—
Winnipeg Tribune.
Sells His Interest
The Spokeaman-Keview prints
the following interview with Jay P.
Graves, general manager of the
Granby Consolidated:
"We not only have closed up our
deal with the Hodgen Brothers, of
Butte and New York, for the 80 per
cent of the capital stock of the Hid
den Creek Mining company, which
we had under bond from them, hut
we also have arranged to purchase
the remaining 20 per cent of the
stock from Mr. Kodgers, who originally interested them in the property. The latter purchase will give
the Granby coinpany complete possession of the assets of the Hidden
Creek company, so we propose to
disincorporate the latter and turn nil
of its property over to the Granby
company as soon as possible."
The purchase of this property
will undoubtedly have a tendency
to strengthen Granby shares, as it
will add from 6,000,000 to U',0J0,
000 tons of ore averaging 2 per cent
copper, running as high as 15 per
cent in copper, and gold and silver
values as higb as 60 cents a ton.
SPICE OF LIFE
It is quite evident that the law of
compensation makes all things equal
The rich mar. has ice in the summer,
and the poor man in the winter. The
hobo has the appetita but not the
price. The millionaire has the price
but no appetite. The editor gets his
hell in this world, while the delinquent subscribers get it in the next.
—Greenwood Ledge.
It is amusingly noticeable in the
Tory London papers coming to hand
how these refer constantly to Sir Wilfrid Laurier as the target for all criticism and the cynosure of all spiteful
eyes, "Sir Wilfrid, howeverf did
this or said that. .No matter what
similar views other colonial pnimiers
may have expressed, they scarcely
ever receivod editorial criticism. This
is true even when their position in the
conference was the same as that, of
Sir Wilfrid, We should think Canada's prime minister should feel proud
thus to be tlirecting the affairs of empire.—Victoria Times.
Forced to admit that Sir John A.
Macdonald and Sir John Thompson
favored in 1N91 just such a trade
Hgreement aa Canada has now enteral
into with the United States, the "Win
uipeg Conservative newspaper says:
"If Sir John A. Macdonald ami Sir
John Thompson hail lived up Uj the
present day, ami hail progressed
they would have done in thought ami
action with the progress of Canada,
they would have lieen tho head and
forefront of the opposition to red
procity as at present advanced." The
only way for the Tories is to represent
Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir John
Thompson as a pair of dunderheads,
not half as wise as the Conservative
leaders for today. The public will,
however, have ita own opinion about
this,—Manitoba Free Press.

compare with it. I

weakness and painful menstruation
and it cured me. — Mrs. JOeVerb

Because your ease is a difficult one,
doctors having done you no good, do
not continue to suffer without giving
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial. .It surely has cured
many cases of female ills, such aa inflammation, ulceration, displacements,
fibroid tumors, irregularities, periodic
pains, backache, that bearing-down
feeling, indigestion, dizziness, and
nervous prostration. It costs but a
trifle to try it, and the result is worth
millions to many suffering women.

The Insurgent Lady
A ,thin hatchet-laced woman stood
in the rear doorway of the car and refused to move up, although several'
times asked to do s© by the conductor.
"Move up, madam; move up," the
conductor shouted, pushing her
ahead.
"I shan't do it," she said. "I
shan't move a peg!"
"Move up," insisted the conductor;
"plenty of room in the middle of the
car."
"I shan't do it," said the womnn,
clinging to her strap.
Just then tt mnn run across the
track in front of the car and the
motorman put on the brakes hard.
The ear stopped suddenly. The womnn was pulled from her strap and
sent skittering up to the front end,
where she bunged ngninst the door.
From thnt position she glnneed back
at the conductor nnd shouted:
"Well, I'm here; but you didn't
make me come I"

Two beautifully dressed women got
on the car at Fifty-fifth street and
entered into a discussion of their
household cares and worries. Finally, when the subject of jellies was
reached, one said to the other:
"Yes, we tried some crnh apples
this year,'but the stuff wouldn't jell,
aid we had to give it to the Salvation
Army."

It Will Prevent Ulcerated Throat.-At
the flrst symptom, of .ore throat, which
presages ulceration and inflammation,
take a spoonful of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric
Oil. Add a little sugar to it to make it
palatable. It will allay the irritation and
prevent the ulceration and .welling that
are so painful. Those who were periodically subject to quinsy have thus made
themselves immune to attack.
The busiest thing in thc world is
idle curiosity.

TRIED AT LAST WHEN
OTHERS ALL FAILED
AND    DODD'S      KIDNEY      PILLS
CURED THE POSTMASTER
F. Tipplns had suffered for years and
spent hundreds on doctors and
medicines, but found the real cure
at last.
Tippins P.O., Que. (Special).—If
Dodd's Kidney Pills have a more enthusiastic friend anywhere in Canadn
thnn Mr. F. Tippins, postmaster here,
we would like to henr from him. And
Mr. Tippins is always ready to tell
why he praises the grent Kidney
Remedy.
"After recovering from an attack of
Grippe," the postmaster says, "I took
a pain in my back. I suffered for
nearly three years and it kept grow,
ing worse all the time. I was attend,
ed by all the doctors around' but got
no relief, and I got so bad I had to
keep to my bed. After spending
about $200 on doctors and medicines
I gave up all hope.
"One day I told my wife to go and
get me a box of Dodd's Kidney Pills
and that would be the last medicine I
would try. After using about half
the box I began to flel better, so I
kept on taking them. When I had
taken two boxes I was able to get
up, and ten boxes cured me completely."
Dodd's Kidney Pills cure where all
other medicines fail.

The teacher had called upon Freddie
Brown to give an illustration of the
proper manner in which to compare
the adjective "clean."
"Mother is clenn," said he, falter-
ingly; "father is—cleaner—" Here lie
paused.
"And," prompted the teacher.
Freddie wns still silent and very
thoughtful.
"Haven't you some other relative?"
asked the teacher, smiling.
"Oh, yes," replied Freddie, "there's
auntie—but I ain't sure about her!"

Backwoods Luxury
A Boston sport, happened to miss
his train und stoppetl nt a farmhouse
in the backwoods of Mnine. The following morning he nsked the farmer
liow much he owed him.
"Well," said the farmer, "you hnd
supper, then you went down cellar
nnd drunk pretty nenr all my eider,
yer made love to my daughter, yer
kissed my wife, nml ye hud u bed nntl
yer hnd hreiikliist this morning. Do

Pastor—Ah, I'm sorry, John. But
we will converse ubout that some
other time. Just now I wnnt you to
go to the plumber's nnd settle this
bill for $12 for thawing out n water
pipe. And you might talk to the man
in a careless sort of way, as if it
were your own bill.
'Yes, I hnd ten children. They oil
grew up and married off."
"I suppose it is lonesome now at
home?"
"Oh, no. Every once in a while one
of them gets a divorce and wanders
back."

new-born babe. Concerning them
Mrs. Albert E. Wood, London, Ont.,
says: "I have found Baby's Own Tablets all that is claimed for them. My
baby has had them from birth and
will take them eagerly. I am sure
there is no better medicine for little
ones." The Tablets are sold by
medicine dealers or by mail at 25

"No, what is it?"

When I went Into my now bouse I
desired to here one room In It ts antique ts possible. Tbat room la mj
library. Among tbe furniture I desired was t desk. 1 looked about everywhere for one thit I could be sure
was very old and tt list found one
that filled my wishes. Upon getting
It Into my library 1 unlocked every
drawer tnd after dusting tt wiped lt
wltb t damp cloth. 1 noticed tbtt
every bit of spice ln tbe desk was
converted Into use except t reotaugu-
Itr ires wblcb seemed to btve been
omitted. A bit of veneering is large
at tbe tip of'my flnger bad become
loosened. In pressing on It 1 released
t secret drawer. Tbere wis only one
piece of piper in the drawer, bnt It
wis Important It wis addressed on
the back to Peter Drtseoll ind wu
dated April 6. 18115.   It read:
Send th. balance of tht property at

NEMO,
I tm endowed with t fair amount
of curiosity snd, forrumtely for me,
bsve tbe means to gratify lt I telephoned t prominent detective igency
to tend me t good min. lt sent
me Evan Bunt Showing bim my
desk, 1 told bim where I bsd bought.
It tnd directed him to trace IU ownership. Tbe next day be reported thit
tbe storekeeper from whom 1 hsd pur
cbssed It bid obtained It from tbe
estate of Peter Drtseoll. ■ mm wbo
bid been found murdered one morning ln his bed.
I wis very much moved by the news.
1 ssw it once tbit tbe discovery of tbe
piper plated upon me tn obligation to
tun tbe letter over to tbe authorities.
But is I sm of ■ retiring disposition I
did not relish being mixed up ln ■
murder cue. I concluded to prosecute
my investigations further before miking tbe mttter public. Pledging my
detective to secrecy, I showed bim tbe
paper I bad taken from the desk snd
directed Mm to And tbe writer. The
signature "Nemo" wu undoubtedly assumed. But tbe detective believed the
handwriting wu tbat of the person
who bad made tbe demand since tbose
who levy blackmail are not likely to
Impart a knowledge of wbat they are
doing to any one else.
It wu fully ■ month before be reported tbtt be bid found ■ man wbom
he believed to be tbe writer of tbe
letter. No clew had ever been fonnd
to lead the i-ollce to tbe murderer of
Peter Drtseoll. Bunt had secured an
acquaintance wltb Drlaeoll's family.

several presentations Irom his admirers in the House in commemoration ol his golden wedding aniver.
sary. Mr. Krskine was barn on Janu-
ary 6, 1838, and was educated at
Harrow. He served in the 30th Regi.
ment and the Scots Fusilier Guards
from 1854 to 1861. took part in the
Crimea, and was Groom of the Robes
to the late Queen Victoria for over
thirty years. He has been Serjeant-
at-Arms for twenty-six years, and his
reminiscences of the House over that
lengthy period would make fascinat-
intr reading.
Perhaps the most exciting incident
during his tenure of the post was the
historic free fight of July, 1893. more
exciting even than the expulsion ol
Mr. Bradlaugh. Mr. Erskine's en.
deavors to restore order were pathetic.
In the midst of the scrimmage he
went up to a well-known Nationalist
member who was with his hat on just
st the gangway, and politely requested him to be uncovered. He received
a courteous refusal, on the ground
that in such a scene both hands were
required to he unencumbered for sell-
defence if necessary.
"Well, then," said the sergeant,
"will you go into one of the division
lobbies?"
"What?" was the reproachful reply, "are you seriously ar-king me to
miss such a sight a; this?"
The sergeant thereupon went else,

An eminent Nonconformist divine,

At the conclusion of the lecture ■
somewhat important, elde'ly gentle-

modified by the closing remarks:—
"But don't you think, sir, thnt in
tho presence ol so many young pe>
fie it's a pity to take snuff so freely?
t only makes your nose red!" .
Gravely and at once came the reply:
"Sir, some people may make their
noses red by taking snuff; some make
their notes red by taking drink; there
are others who make their noses red
by poking them into other people's
business!"

Like t novel in epitome wu ■ written statement handed in to a London
magistrate recently by a man, against
whom were- three separated charges
of stealing boots.
The writer of the autobiography
was Roger, alias Patrick Hayes, aged
thirty-three years, of Blomfield road,
Bow. The boots stolen were the property of various boot dealers in the
East End ol London.
Hayes at once pleaded guilty to all
three charges, "in order," he said,
"to save the time of the court." His
written statement, as read by the
magistrate, was u follows:
"I am an ex-P.C. of the Royal Irish
Constabulary, and resigned from that
force to take part in the Jameson
Rtid. I wu sent baek from Cape
Colony with others when the leaders
were captured. On returning to London I joined the Scots Guards, and
went through the Boer war, receiving
the Queen's and King's medals and
clasps for 'Diamond Hill,' 'Belfast,'
'Johannesburg,' 'Modder River,'
'Paardeberg,' and 'Doomkop.'"
The document went on to tell how
Hayes was promoted corporal on tbe
field of "Belfast."
"For courageous conduct in the firing line, and later, at Jericho, in the
Eastern Transvaal, was the means of
saving twenty of my comrades, who
would have been either killed or captured. For this I received the tharVs
and commendation of the general and
officers of the column. I was invalided from South Africa for heart disease and debility, occasioned by the
heavy marching and privations of the
campaign, and subsequently transferred to the Reserves.
Then came the tragedy of the story,
in which the writer said he could get
no work by reason of his invalidity,
and must now lose all hope of pension:
"In 1907 I wss taken off the Reserves, and granted fifteenpence a day
for twelve months. That ceased in
July, 1909. The question of the renewal of the pension is under the
consideration of the War Office authorities now, and is getting support
from the general officer that commanded my division, but thia disgrace will speedily terminate any
good that may accrue.
"I found that being invalided for
heart disease was the greatest barrier
against my getting employment in the
police, postoffice, or any railway company, and on that account my work
has been temporary and casual, and
is the means ot my standing before
you now."
Hayes, it was said, had already
been bound over under the Probation
Act, both at the Sessions and in the
City, and the court missionary, and
the officers about the court, had helped him.
He wu sentenced to three months
in the second division on account ol
his health.

An amusing letter of apology, in
broken English, waa left in the Roman villa at Brading, near Sandown,
Isle of Wight, a place of great interest
to antiquaries, when it was broken into on Easter Sunday. The offence was
I apparently committed by a visitor
from Holland, as explained in the
following note:—
"I wanted to see and appreciate
that famous Roman art. I was so unfortunate to come here from Holland
on Sunday. You refused nie to enter
on account of it being Sunday. 1 did
everything I could to convince you
in vain.
"Nothing was left to me than to see
it in a manner which is not the regular one. I climbed on the roof, but
could not see through the windows.
So then I broke the window. I give
the sixpence (price of admission) to
a poor of the isle.—Excuse me.

The authorities are searching lor

who received the sixpence.
Modern Haartltstntti,
It has remained for England,
through the operation of her oltl age
pension law, to afford the world perhaps the most striking example ol the
heartlessness ol the present uge. This
law provides tliat those entitled to its
benefit cannot receive the aid offered
so long as they are inmates of almshouses. In the search for homes
which is being carried forwurd by the
unfortunate, would-be receivers of old
age pensions there has come a saddening revelation of the supposed
strength of family feeling. Out of
628 old men and women entitled tc
leave a certain workhouse on old age
pensions only 37 were sure that they
would be welcomed by relatives. As
a matter ol fact, It waa eventually
found thnt only nine nl this number
really had homes to winch they could
go.

Some interesting recollections of Sir
Rufus Isaacs, the new Solicitor-General, nre given in The Jewish World
by one who was st school with him.
He was, it seems, the very worst ol
boys from the schoolmaster's point
uf view. "Lessons he left unlearnt,
class-work he shirked, and mischief
was his only devotion. Nor waa he
mischievous only in himself—he delighted in inspiring others in his
'wicked ways.' Indeed, my recollection of the Solicitor-General is always
associated with a demoniacal young
mischievous imp, with sparkling eyea.
