AND KETTLE   VALLEY   ORCHARDIST
No. 46—ELEVENTH YEAR
GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1912

-TflO'T
Say the   Doukhobors Are
Detrimental to City and
Province
. Tbe city ball was crowded tonight
witb representative citizens from tbe
valley and the town. President
Clark, of the board of trade, occupied tbe ebair.
It was moved by W. A. Cooper,
seconded by C. A. Michener, and
unanimously carried, lhat tbis citizens' meeting go on record as being
opposed to tbe Doukhobor colony,
situated near Grand Forks, as detrimental to the best interests of Grand
Forks aud the province of British
Columbia.
Tbe following committee was appointed to secure counsel and pre
sent tbe citizens' case before the
commission: Messrs. W.A. Cooper,
D. McCallum, G. M. Fripp, F. Mil
Ier and F. M. Kerby.
The committee will make a report
at a meeting to be beld in the city
hall' next Monday night, September
16. Every citizen of the town and
valley is invited to be present.
tbe bystander commiseratingly.
"Everything," was the dismal
answer. "If I lie on my left ride it
interferes witb tbe action of my
heart. If I rest on my back it induces insomnia. If the right side is
utilized, I am open to an attack of
appendicitis. If I lie on my face it's
uncomfortable and brings on facial
wrinkles. If I stand on my head
tbe blood rushes thither and I must
desist. The position of standing
upright is not adapted to sleeping
purposes. Tbere is no escape," and
with a groan the victim of scientific
reasoning turned away in the direction of tbe undertaker's.
JUN STROKES
One of the out of date institutions
of this province is the Yale land
office. It must have been located
in medieval times, because it is almost us inaccessible as tbe north
pole. A united effort should be
made.to have it moved to tbis city,
where it would be within easy reach
of all the people of the district. At
present a trip to Fairview can only
be made at the risk ot depleting a
fat purse and tbe breaking of one's
neck, together witb the loss of a
couple of weeks' time.
Some of the Properties at the
Tax Sale Sold for All They
Were Worth
The annual sale of city property
for unpaid taxes was beld in the city
ball at noon today, tbe clerk acting
as auctioneer. A large number of
the properties were bid in by tbe
owners, others were bought by speculators, and a few reverted to tbe
eity. Tbe bidding on some of the
more desirable properties was quite
brisk, and some of tbe purchasers
paid all they were worth. IS. Lequime bid in Ralph Trotter's big
residence near tbe cemetery, and
Bob Petrie bought a 2x4-foot lot on
the corner of Bridge street and
Riveri-ide avenue. He will erect a
30 etorey brick block on it.
*    fishy
A recent dispatch from Vancouver cays that "because the laws of
tbe Dominion, and fhose of British
Columbia in particular, conflict witb
their ideas of personal liberty, it is
possible tbat 2000 Doukhobors in
this province will soon trek to Colorado, where they bave been promised all tbe latitude tbey desire in
tbe regulation of their community."
Tbis sounds very much as if an
attempt were being made to influence
the Doukhobor investigation in tbia
section of the province. Any one
who is at all familiar witb the laws
of the United States, can readily see
tbat the story iB a lie.
Caged Daughters
There is so mucb truth in the
following remarks, made by Prof.
Leonard Hill before tbe congress of
the British Association for the Advancement of Science, now in see
sion at Dundee, Scotland, that it will
repay any person to read them
twice: "Tbe caged daughters of tbe
well-to-do are the flotsam and jetsam cast up by the tide in wbich all
others struggle for existence. Tbeir
lives are no less monotonous than
the sweated seamstress; they become
Tilled with vapors, and seek excite
ment playing with fire. ... It
seems to me that tbe world is con
ducted as if ten persons were on an
island, and that while live sought
the necessaritiee of life, bunted food,
built shelters and tires and made
clothes of skins, tbe other five strung
necklaces of shells, made loin cloths
of butterfly wings, gambled with
knuckle bones, drew comic pictures
in tbe rand, or carved frightening
demons out of clay, and so beguiled
from the ffr>t five tbe larger share of
their wealth."
What Now?
"It's no use," groaned he of the
prodigous yawn and the sleepy eye,
"if I don't sleep I can't live, and
The following estimate of Theodore Roosevelt is from a speech by
United States Senator George Sutherland: "He is a comet, a wandering tramp of the skies, mostly gas,
which disclose its true character
when the hot air comes in contract
with tbe solid body of the Republi
can party." Tbe remarks, with
slight variations, might with
equal appropriateness be applied to
other public men.

F. Augustus Heinze Now in
Victoria to Make a
Settlement
Scientists now declare that a billion years from now human life
may be created in tbe laboratory.
The discovery will no doubt furnish
an interesting theme for debate in
dim, distant ages; but it would be of
more importance to tbe present gen
eration if tbe means of preserving
life for a billion years were discovered.
Tbe prettiest lawn and flower
gardens in this city are located at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. George
Gowland. The flowers are in their
loveliest garb at present, and it is
well worth a walk of two or tbree
miles to view them. Tnere aie
1200 aster plants in bloom, of every
color of the rainbow, and each plant
carries from ten to thirteen flowers
Tbe beauty of tbis profusion of
bloom has to be seen to be fully ap
predated. Tbe Sun bas on numer
ous occasions advocated tbe offering
of a few prizes by the city council
for the best kept lawns, and it hopes
to this policy adopted next year. A
few dollars expended in this way
would do more to beautify tbe city
than thousands spent for otber im
provements.
Enough money has been spent
on most of the wagon roads in
this province to build railway
grades.
Ten years fro*n now the people
will wonder wby the ballot was kept
from tbe women so long.

SOCIAL AND PERSONAL
At tbe meeting of tbe city council
on Monday night the claim for ex
tra compensation, made by tbe contractors of tbe city reservoir, was re>
jected, Aid. Miller and Taylor voting against tbe -proposition. Tbe
other members of the board did not
think the question of sufficient in
terest to vote. The council also ef
iected a trade witb H. C. Kerman
of the two lots on the southwest corner of Winnipeg avenue and Second
street for bis lot on the corner of
Winnipeg avenue and Third street
on whicb Kavanagh & McCutcheon's
furniture factory is located, and
which bas been donated to tbe Cau
adian Pacific railway for additional
trackage facilities. Mr. Kerman
agrees to move tbe building. The
balance of tbe business transuded
was of a routine character.
'Rip Van Winkle" was tbe bill
at the Grand Forks opera house this
evening. To those who had been
fortunate enough lo have seen the

W. Blakemore, tbe Doukhobor
commissiner, held sittings here of
tbe commission in the new court
house on Tuesday and Wednesday,
and also made a personal inspection
of conditions in tbe colony four
miles went of tbe city. Thirty-live
witnesses were examined. Nearly
alj of them expressed views tending
to show lhat tbe Douks are undesirable settlers.
The gratifying iucrease in The
Sun's circulation is sufficient evij
dence tbat tbe public appreciate a
newspaper wbich is not tied to any

Work on tbe Canadian Pacific
railway's machine shop and roundhouse in the West end is progressing rapidly.

Diamond drilling has demonstrated that ore can be found 1500 feet

F. Augustus Heinze, the millionaire copper magnate of Montana, is
in Victoria for the purpose of interviewing tbe government with reference to the Columbia & Western
land grant. His presence in that
city, says the Daily Times, arouses
fresh interest in a matter whicb has
had a peculiarly lively political history, as lively in fact, ts that of Mr.:
Heinze, and when it is recalled ihatr
the well known mining man waB a
political force in Montana in tbe
days when Marcus Daly and ex-
Secretary W. A. Clark were spectacular figures, this is ssying a great
deal.
About eighteen years ago Mr.
Heinze came to British Columbia.
He was then a young man of twenty-
four or thereabouts, but be had his
ideas wbich found expression in the
organization of the Columbia &
Western railway scheme, for which
he obtained a charter and a grant of
800,000 acres of land. He also built
tbe Trail smelter. Subsequently be
gild the road, tbe smelter and half
of tbe land grant to tbe Canadian
Pacific railway. But just whicb
balf tbe railway company obtained
it never exactly knew, because the
conditions of transfer never properly
specified it, and the company was
unable to deal with the land until
Mr. Heinze selected his part. Tbis
lbe copper magnate would nol do because his land would have become
subject to taxation immediately it
lost its identity as part of tbe railway grant. The Canadian Pacific
railway tried to force Mr. Heinze to
select his land by the process of law,
but Mr, Heinze never wilted; he and
litigation were old friends in Montana, and his girdle is heavy with
trophies won in the law courts of
Helena. As usual he won tbis case
also.
A short time ago the government
bought back theCandian Pacific railway's   portion   for   forty cents per
acre, and thus the   provincial   authorities  and   Mr. Heinze   became
partners in tbe possession of the late
lamented Columbia & Western land
grant—an entertaining freak of   the
whirligig of time.    About the   beginning of the year   another factor
velopcd in the situation. The period
I ot tax exemption expired, and the
I land, or Mr. Heinze's part of  it,   be-
j came   subject   to   taxation.     Now
j comes lhe IMontana cupper  king to
I adjust lho difficulty, and whether to
i sell lo the government or select  his
half and pay hia taxes just  like ordinary  morlals,   who   do  not own
copper mines, he will not say.    He
bas  interviewed   Premier  .McBride
on tbe subject.    He will  remain in
Victoria until the matter is  settled.

The Statesman and the Wise Reporter
Charles Njtgi.1, secretary ol commerce and tabor, lias under his tie-
partmcnt the revenue cutter service
and th? lighthouse boats, which make
up a treuienalous fleet. The last
time lho president reviewed the
UuiteJ Stales navy In New York
Harbor, Mr. Nagel waa on one of the
boats cs f sight-seer. Tall and silent, l.p had been watching the naval
lighter.! without making any comment Finally he was approached
by a Nev.' York newspaper reporter,
who was clad ln the latest fashions
and a consciousness of great wisdom.
Dial's n pretty big fleet, don't you
think? the news gatherer asked of the
till man, nnd pointed to the two hundred skips which were under Inspection.
Oh, I don't know, replied Nagel. I've
sot a ll,r|er one.
The reporter's Jaw dropped, and he
rejoined his companions with the pitying remark: That old fellow ls plumb
nuts.
His curiosity got the better of him,
however, and he went up to Nagel
ngnin with the question: What Is your
mime?
My name Is Nagel, replied the
member of the cabinet.
Where are you from?
My home is in St. Louis.
Is that so? commented the reporter
vaguely. And you have a bigger
fleet than this?
Oh, yes, reaffirmed Nagel carelessly.
That was too much for the reporter. He went back to his companions, made a gesture signifying wheels
In the head, and said, with an air of
treat, conviction:
Fellows, he's a raving maniac.
When Nagel Had to Ride
Charles Nagel, secretary of the department of commerce and labor, is
a tall man, resembling ill his build an
isolated pine tree on the top of a -hill.
Returning to Washington one night
from New York, he got past the tax-
lcabs and was surrounded by a group
of hackmen, to whom he paid absolutely io attention as he Intended to
walk the fourteen block to his office.
The hackmen greeted him with a
storm of such cries as:
Take you right uptown!—Take you
to Ihe New Willard!—Take you to the
Raleigh!
The statesman walked straight
ahead without even looking at his
besiegers;.
If you want a cheap hotel, Jump
right li, here, insisted another driver.
Btlll Nagel walked on-unheeding.
Finally a Jehu addressed him thus:
Deaf iiul dumb asylum! Take you
up there In a minute.
At this Mr. Nagel laughed, and got
Into lhe hack.
A man went to an insurance offico
the other day to have his life Insured.

It is Criminal
to Neglect the
Skin and Hair
THINK of the suffering
entailed by neglected skin
troubles — mental because
of disfiguration, physical because of pain. Think of the
pleasure of a clenr skin, soft,
white hands, aud good hair.
These blessings, so essential
to happiness and even* success in life, are often only a
matter of a little thoughtful
care in the selection of effective remedial agents. Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment do so much for poor
complexions, red, rough
hands, and dry, thin and
falling hair, and cost so
little, that it is almost criminal not to use them.
Although Cuticura Soap and Ointment arc sold by druggists ami dealers
everywhere, a postal to "Cuticura,"
Dept. SM, Boston, tl. S. A., will secure a
liberal sample of each, with it'-i-pago

Hlc Last Three Dollar Bill
This Illustrates the tremendous, astounding, and gorgeous value of making a big show as a last resort. It
dlcates that, brass, bravery and bunk,
properly connected with an opera hat
and pearl shirt studs, can make the
conquests of Alexander the Great
look like a five-cent moving-picture
show when the lights are bad.
The hero Is Fred T. Dubois, who
has been many things at many times.
Once he was a merchant, and once he
was a Republican United States senator, aad once again he was a Democratic senator At quite another
time, lowever, he was dead br
Chicago. Carefully searching himself at five o'clock ln the afternoon
he discovered that he had three dollars ln his pocket and a feeling of
great dreariness in his heart. He
did not know whether he would retire
to the almshouse or retreat to the
lake when that three dollars had given
out. The sun was Betting ln clouds
of. red. and the breeze that swept
down Michigan Avenue was cold.
Fred shivered and concluded ln a
flash of unusual sagacity that this was
a sad nnd weary world.
Well, he told himself. I'll put. up the
best front possible until ruin lays its
cold and clammy hand upon my
throat. I'll go to tho opera this
evening.
Whereupon, he arrayed himself like
a bridegroom, strolled down to the
stage. He was particular that It
should be an aisle seat. Then he
walked down the aisle with the demeanor of a hero and the haughtiness of an indicted millionaire.
The upshot of it was that his seat
happened to be next to a man who
was unaccompanied at the theatre.
At the flrst Intermission the stranger
invited Dubois out to have a drink. As
they strolled up the street after the
performance, the other, impressed
with Fred's superb appearance and
clever; oonversation, closed a business
deal with him that set him on his feet
and gave him a new start in life.
All of which indicates tbat, while
you have a dress suit, you stand a
chance to hypnotize ready money.
The Riddle
I planted a seed ln my neighbor's garden
(Fair, wee garden where   Wonder
grows)
Wet with a   tear   that   It   may   not
harden.
Seed of a Hope that the dear God
knows—
And for Its cover
I folded over
Five slim petals of a little Wild Rose.
0, Lady-Liege of the Wonder-Garden,
Riddle tne, how is that seed to be—
Quick vith the sun of thy smile and
pardon.
Or dead and dust   for   despair   of
thet?
Wilt thou It bloom as   a   flower   ln
Arden?
Wilt thou lt perish before we See?
Will thy palm forget
Where my kiss was set
To grow for a thought, of me?
—By Charles F. Lummls
Another Form of Senatorial Courtesy
In addition to studying railroad
rates, the question of high living, and
the tariff, Senator John M. Dixon, of
Montana, has been a student of the
general subject of ghosts. Just before he came to Washington to begin
his service in the Senate, he was told
by a "bad man" of Montana, who had
been condemned to death, that, spirits could return to this earth from the
other world.
At midnight of the day that I am
hanged, said the murderer, I will
knock at your front door In order to
prove to you that ghosts can come
back.
On the midnight In question, Dixon
was silling up ln his Washington
home courteously waiting to see what
would happen, for the man's manner
had impressed him greatly. The
senator waB nbout to go to bed when
he remembered that there is a difference of three hours between Washington and Montana time. So he waited up three hours longer, but again
received no visit.
The only thing I wish I had established, said Dixon, afterward, waB
by what time the affairs of the other
world are conducted.

Discussed In a Recent Bulletin of the
"v Forestry Branch
Ever since the Province of Quebec
forbade the export of pulpwood cut
from Ciown lands, considerable interest has been taken In the questlqn
as to how the price of pulpwood would
be affected. A leading paper trade
periodical estimated that the price of
pulpwood had advanced one dollar
per coid. This ls .corroborated by
the bulletin on pulpwood lately compiled by the Forestry Branch of the
Department of the Interior. According to this bulletin, the average price
of pulpwood in Quebec province during 1911 was higher by ninety seven
cents than during 1910. In Ontario
tho price actually fell twenty cents
per cord, while tn Nova Scotia aud
New Brunswick Increases of twenty
nine und twenty two cents respectively are announced.
A question thnt Is Just beginning to
come Into notice In tbe Dominion ls
tlr. utilization ot saw-mill waste as
materia', for pulp making. A very
small quantity of such waste la so

both saw-mills and pulp-mills.
TO STRENGTHEN
WEAK NERVES
The Blood Supply Mutt be Made
Rich, Red ud Pure
When you build up the blood you
strengthen the nerves, because the
nerves get their food through the
blood. You cannot reach the norves
with medicine except through the
blood—this is a great medical truth
few people realize. Nervous people
are pale people. They are nervous
becauso they are pale. The blood ls
bo thin and watery that It cannot
nourish the nerves- Starved nerves
mean sciatica, neuralgia, nervous prostration, paralysis.
Dr- WIlllamB' Pink Pills for Pale
People are a real nerve tonic. They
supply plenty of nourishing red blood
to the exhausted nerves, thus enabling
them to do the work nature Intended
they should do. This ls the simple
secret of the success of Dr. Williams'
Pink Fills ln curing nerve troubles.
Aa to their value in cases of sciatica,
Mrs. Job Palmer, Fenelon Falls. Ont.,
says: "For seven weeks I suffered untold agony from sciatica. I tried
everything to ease the pain, but It
steadily grew worse. Liniments had
no more effect upon tbe trouble tlian
water. Then the doctor told me to
apply a hot iron to the afflicted part
and I did bo morning after morning,
but my leg had become so numb with
the pain that I could hardly feel the
heat of the Iron. I never expected to
he able to walk again my leg was so
drawn up. 1 had tried so many things
that I had given up hope, yet at the
urging of my brother I decided to try
Dr. Williams' Phik Fills. To my
surprise in two weeks I was able to
stand on my feet with but little pain,
and soon after I was able to walk
ahout again. 1 continued taking the
Pills for about two months, but some
time before I discontinued their use
my leg bad become normal again,.-ami
the agony of the trouble had disappeared, and I have not since had a twinge
of lt. Words fall to express my gratitude for what the Pills did for me
and I strongly recommend them to all
sufferers from sciatica.
The every day mission of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Ib to cure cases like
the above, and they will not disappoint lf given a fair trial. Sold by

The above photo shows the new fac tory of the Mooney Co. at Vancouver,
the latest link ot the across the continent chain of factories of the Mooney
Biscuit & Candy Oa., Head Office, Stratford, branch factories at Winnipeg
and Vancouver. The latest factory has been purchased from the H. Smith
Biscuit Co., of Vancouver, the pioneer biscuit and candy manufacturers of
the Pacilic Coast. This company enjoys a very substantial business, and
only last year erected a new factory building of steel and cement construction which ls one of the most modern ln the Dominion. While the Mooney
Co. have not divulged the exact amount of the purchase price, It is understood to be ln the neighborhood of $300,000.
Tbe story of tne organisation and progress of the Mooney Biscuit Co.
reads almost like a tale from the Arabian Nights. Less than eight years
ago the business was started ln a small way In Stratford, Ont. Mr. W. J.
Mooney the foundd.*, who has been and ls still tne President of the Company, has been called "the wizard of the biscuit business." He has had
for many years some very original Ideas regarding the biscuit business, and
Immediately on thc organisation of his own factory he proceeded to put
them Inlo operillon. . One of theso was, tbat factory-made biscuits, If
fresh, conld In a large measure Buppiant the home-made article. Cons -
quent.y, steps »vcie taken to place tne biscuits on the grocers' shelves In a
condition of freshness heretofore unheard of In the biscuit business ot Canada, (ioods w< te shipped the same day tney left the oven, and arrangements were made for specially fast despatch- The company's own line of
private cars wss Installed to Insure -ueanlincss, and to avoid delays and
a strenuous advertising campaign was launched to promote a rapid movement of the goods after they actually reached the relall merchant. Thn
effect of tbls policy was little short of wonderful. The business developed at a rate undreamt of by Its founders and each succeeding year necessitated extensions lu factory, until finally a brand in w building was
erected to take care of the rapidly Increasing business.
Iu the Canadian West the results were of a particularly gratifying character, notwithstanding the long distance from the seat of manufacture. In
fact, eo satiBltiCiorj were the results that the Mooney Company decided
that tbe proportions of the Western trade entitled lt to be served by a Western factory, so that the people of the West, as well as those of th East,
might receive Moonoy's goods In an absolutely as "fresh from tho oven"
condition. Consequently u little less than two yeais ago the big factory
iu Winnipeg was secured, and the results which have beeu achieved since
thai time have fully justified the wisdom of the venture, and have set the
"!>! of approval on the oranch factory idea. The business of the Mooney
Biscuit & Candy Co. ls now conceded to bc the larg..st of the kind In the
Dominion of Canada, and It ranks very prominently among the big industrial enterprises of the ..ountry.
Although the British Columbia territory has heretofore been served by
the Mooney factory at Stratford, nevertheless the business has fully kept
pace with the growth of the territory, and has now reached proportions where
the company feel that It can only be taken care of by a factory actually on
the ground. In addition to the present business of the Mooney Co; tho
new factory will also take over the existing business of the Smith Co.
which Is of very considerable proportions, so that It Ib expected that the
new factory will at once be taxed to Its utmost proportions.
Mr. W, C. Mooney the Vice President of tho Company, who has been
manager ot the Winnipeg factory. Is uow in Vancouver and will bave charge
of the roofgiitttatlan work.

FRIDAY','SEPTEMBER 13, 1912
The feeling against the Dotikho
bor commission by the citizens of
Grand Forks is quite bitter. Everybody characterize the proceedings us
a farce. A few good Tories bave
even gone so far as to assert that
the whole thing is a graft. It .8 not
for a newspaper of the opposite be
lief to deny this accusation. The
Sun's opinion is tbat tbe appointment of the commission was a mistake. There was no necessity for it.
The evidence brought out at tbe
sessions here could have been furnished lhe government by the constables stationed in the districts
where the colonies are located, and
if these officers had performed their
duty tbey would have enforced the
laws the Doukhobors are alleged to
have violated. That is the only result anyone can expect from the up
pointinent of the expensive eommis
sion. Even the autocratic McBride
government can not confiscate the
lands of these people and send them
out of the country. Obviously no
guild bus so far been accomplished
l.y the commission. On the con
trary. tbe prominence given the subject by Ibe press, local and foreign,
hus given tbe. people of tbe  outside
world an erroneous impression of
this district—an impression wjiich
will require columns of explanation and years to eradicate. Instead of the valley being scattered
over *vith Doukhobors, as might be
inferred by reading some of these
articles,they are bunched together in
a remote section of it, and scarcely
ever come in contact with the other
inhabitants. This is a true statement of the condition of affairs existing here. But Bince to the provincial government has seen lit to
make a public question out of a matter that should have been confined
to the police department, the people
of thiB district demand the most
searching investigation into the
mode of living of these people. They
demand the Bame right us is accorded
the Doukhobors, that of being represented by counsel at the sitting of
the commission. And lastly, they
demand that tbe lawson the statute
books be enforced against all the
the people, irrespective of religious
creed or political belief. If the gov
ernment is impotent to grant these
requests, it is time that it gave place
to one wbich has a higher regard for
human rights.
Most Important tvents  of
Past Week Told in Brief
Paragraphs
The printing of the delinquent tax
list for tbe Rossland assessment dis
trict in three newspapers within a
radius of twenty miles illustrates
the lavish expenditure of the public
funds by the MeBride machine for
tbe purpose of retaining power. Each
paper will draw down between 8200
aud $300, in return for which they
are expected to laud the politicians
of the machine as great statesmen
Had the list only been printed in
one paper, jealousy would, of course,
have arisen, and some uncomfortable truths mighi have been disclosed. The Tory newspaper busi-
nesc of British Columbia closely resembles gratiug, and tbe publishers
bave degenerated into leeches who
feed on tbe misfortunes of honest
men.
The Doukhobor enquiry in this
city this week was so notoriously onesided that one grey-haired Conservative did not hesitate to designate it as "a d— farce." The Suu
wishes to place special emphasis ou
the d—.
It is reported that the Liberals
throughout British Columbia ure

harm.

Were our birds to become extinct,
all life would soon become extinct
Insect life would in a period of three
years destroy vegetation, when all
men and animals, except perhaps
fishes, whould die for lack of sustenance. Soon tbe waters would
become polluted and fish life would
cease. Tbe insects themselves would
die for lack of food, and tbe earth
would be destitute of life in any

The value of tbe birds to tht

Each individual  bird is working

Waning Influence of Jingoists
The Montreal Witness says: "We
have recently seen what extraordinary effect the call of jingoism when
sent out by the yellow press can
momentarily obtain oyer the people
of Canada. We saw the same thing
in the United States when a suildi-n
ebulition of yellow fury, working on
tm old grudge, rushed the nation
into war with Spain. Uut after the
whirlwind comes the still small
voice of intelligence, bringing men's
minds to the balance, and the jingo
chord can not be too long played tin
with response. It is becoming evident to those who have engineered the German hatred, and
hoped to make political capital
out of it in an attempt to secure the passage of any naval
bill that might be brought down
with a single shout of assent, thnt
jingoism is a bit played out for the
present. It is impossible to keep
political allegiance by simply wav
ng the flag nn all occasions."

Headache is a symptom and not a
disease iu itself. It acts as a danger
signal to warn you of serious trouble.
By leading Mr. Donneral's letter,
you will be satisfied that there Is no
treatment to be compared to Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food as a means of
building up the system and removing
the cause of headaches, sleeplessness
and Indigestion.
Mr. Charles Donneral, Klelnburg.
Ont., writes: "1 wish to communicate
to you the great cure which I received from Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. For
over two years I suffered from fearful
headaches, my appetite wns alwaya
poor, a nd the stomach bad. I took
medicines from physicians, but the
headaches persisted, and 1 waB rarely free from them.
"Reading about Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food, I began using it, with little idea
that I would, be benefited. I had become thin and weak, but the very
first box helped me, and with continued treatment I have been cured
and feel like a new man. The head
aches have disappeared, ray appetite
is good and digestion excellent,
write this letter ln hope that other
sufferers from headache may use Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food and be cured."

HERE will be twelve cash prizes in
each ofthe nine provinces (108 in all)
in the 1912 Prize Contest for Canadian
Farmers. The 1911 Contest was so successful in awakening interest in the use of Concrete on the farm, that a
second contest, in which three times as many prizes are
offered, was decided upon for this year.
The Contest ihis year is divided into three classes, "A,"
"B" and "C," and there will be four priiei in each class. (First
prize, $S0; Second priate, *MS;TI_ird prize, $15; Fourth prize, $10.)
Thus there are three $50 Prizes, three $25 Prizes, three $1S
prizes, and three $10 Prizes, for each province.
DESCRIPTION OF CLASSES
In Eacli Class there will be First, Second, Third and Fourth Prim
($50, $25, $15, and $10) for Each Province.

Don't think that you must use a large quantity of cement in order to
win a prize.   The quantity of cement used does not count in Classes "11" .
and "C."   Many of last year's prize winners used very little cement.
When you enter the Contest, you have a chance to mil a cash
prize of $50 as well as the certainty that you will add a fiirmanent
improvement to your farm. If you haven't a copy, be sure and ask for
our book, "What the Farmer Can Do With Concrete." It will not
only suggest many improvements that you can use in entering the Contest,
but will tell you all about the use of concrete on lhe farm.

POLITE BURGLARS.

That the modern burglar ie by no
means the uncouth, ill-mannered type
of person that Sickens piotured Bill
Sykes to be is evidenced by the extraordinary acts of politeness thet some
criminals perform in the course ol
their nefarious work. The other day,
for instance, a notorious pickpocket
in Paris robbed a music hall singer
ot her handbag, and sent her a neatly-worded letter of apology the next
day.
A gentleman whose pocket was picked of a purse containing money and
two railway tickets in Blackpool not
long ago was astonished a few days
afterwards tn receive the purse and , that,
the railway tickets hack by post. In-'
side the packet containing them was
a note to the effect thet the writer
only required the money thet hed
been in the purse, and advising the
owner of the letter article to be more
careful of his valuables in future.

The most notable feature of these
diaries is perhaps the notes on the
Duke of Wellington, of whom Lady
Shelley was an enthusiastio worship-
ner and an oft-chosen companion.
She gives us many unfamiliar
glimpses of the duke, who was not always iron. At a banquet at Wan-
stead House to celebrate his return
from the Peninsula, his health was
proposed by the Prince Regent.
When the duke rose to reply he had
a broad smile on his faoe, end seemed
to regard all the pageantry and the
honors of that day as nonsense and
fun. It seemed as though all thess
honors concerned anyone rather then
himself.   At last the duke began: "I
want words to express  ."     The
Prince Regent promptly interposed,
"My dear fellow, we know your ec-
tions, and we will excuse your words,
so sit down." This the duke did, with
sll the delight of e schoolboy who has
keen given an unexpected holiday.
And the eame evening Wellington
paid a compliment to the general he
Bed not then met. "I think," he Baid,
"if Bonaparte had attacked in person
when first we entered Spein, we
should have been beat." And he added "that if the option were given him
ef fighting Bonaparte with an equal
number of troops, or any other gen-
ttaS with 20,000 more troops, he
should choose the latter." He hed to
put it te the test, without the option,
within the year. Lsdy Shelley wss
off to Paris with her husband to find
the duke after Waterloo. It was a
time of turmoil and change:
We reached Paris at eleven in the
morning, and occupied apartments in
the Hotel de Napoleon—or "Bour-
fcon," or "Louis Dix-huit," or "de la
Paix," for it enjoyed all those names
during the first week we inhabited
it.
' And the duke saved the Bridge nf
Jena which the Prussians wanted to
destroy, by the simple device of posting* an English sentry upon it:
The Prussians tried hard to get rid
of the sentry, for they were determined to blow up the bridge. But the
sentry would not leave his post. "You
may blow up the bridge if you like,"
said he, "but I don't stir from here."
In Peris the duke took Lady She!
for Bowers. It she desires to make a
little extra pin money this will prove a
successful method.
