I. J. Gill started excavation operations ihis morning on H. C. Kerman's lots next to VV. K. C. Manly's
block. Tbe report spread through
tbe city that Mr. Kerman had let a

storey brick block, which would be

Pushing Work on Power Line
Work is being rushed on the
power line being built by the North
Washington Power and Reduction
company from Republic to Dan
ville, to connect with the line of the
West Kootenay Power & Light company, says the Republic News-
Miner. Thie is a high tension, three-
wire circuit line.
Pleasure in Work
It it not the opportunity to do
just what we like that makes life
successful, hut the resolute will to
like what we have to do and get out
of it the best that is possible. There
have been wondrously beautiful
lives made out of seemingly poor
material; they are being made all
the time and all around us. The
good fortune of being able to do as
we please is as nothing compared lo
being able to Hnd pleasure in what
we have to do.
This is not all, for the apple prevents indigestion and throat diseases.
Apples for Insomnia
People ought to know tbat the
very best thing they can do is to eat
an apple just before retiring for the
night. Persons uninitiated in the
mysteries of the fruit ore liable to
throw up tbeir hands in horror at
the visions of dyspepsia which such
a suggestion may summon up, but
no harm can come even to a delicate
system hy the eating of ripe and |
juicy apples before going to bed.
The apple is excellent brain food,
because it has more phosphoric acid
in easily digested shape than any
other fruit. It excites the liver, promotes sound and healthy sleep and
thoroughly  disinfects  the mouth.

Packing House is Now tbe
Busiest Place in the
The packing house of the Grand
Forks Fruit Growers' association is
the busiest place in the valley these
days. Tbe building is so crowded
witb fruit and workmen that it is
difficult for a sightseer to gain admittance. From now until tbe end

On the Sun ranch there is a new
berry now in a healthy condition.
It is called a Himalaya berry, and
was imported from Michigan by tbe
owner. It resembles a blackberry,
and is of excellent flavor. The
canes, or vines, are hardy and prolific bearers. One of its strong recommendations is, tbat it lengthens
the berry season a couple of months.
It commences to ripen at the end of
tbe raspberry season, and remains
in season until late in tbe fall. It
will undoubtedly grow in popularity
as it becomes better known.

Provincial Treasurer Hands
C.P.R. a Cheque for
$1,109,000    '
Victoria, Sept. 17.—A cheque
for $1,109,000 was handed by the
provincial treasurer yesterday to J.
S. Dennis, of the Canadian Pacific
railway, in payment for land grants
made to the British Columbia Southern and the Columbia & Western
railways, and the lands become once
more the property of the province.
Tbe lands comprise 2,550,000 acres
granted to tbe British Columbia
Southern, and 1,225,000 acres to tbe
Columbia & western. The price paid
is 45 cents per acre, which would
make $1,510,000, but against this
the province had a credit of $401,-
000 paid aB interest on lands on the
Shuswap & Okanagan railway, part
of the bargain embodied in the legislation of the last session being that
the Canadian Pacific should refund
this amount.
The Columbia & Western lands
are resumed subject to F. Augustus
Heinze's ownership of an undivided
half interest in 580,000 acres.
Heinze, during his visit here last
week, suggested that the government should buy his half interest
from hi'ii, and the government is
supposed to be not altogether unfavorable to the idea, but no price
was fixed, in fact the matter did
not go beyond the suggestion.

The Liberal Policy
"Larger markets for theCanadian
fanner." That was lhe central theme
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's speech at St,
Clef on Saturday, That is the Liberal policy as declared by the leader
of the party and cordially endorsed
by every one true In Liberal principles.
Uses for Useless Metals
An immense fortune, accordine
to economic geologists, awaits tbe
man who can invent a use for tellurium. This mineral is one of the
by-products of copper refineries and
of plants working up gold telluride
ores. At present it is all thrown
away, as it is absolutely no good to
anybody. Only a few years ago
tungsten was in very much the same
position as tellurium is nbw. Then
it was found to be highly useful in
the manufacture of incandescent
lamps and tool steel, till today it
would seem probable that with a
cheaper supply it will become one of
our most important minor metals.
Selenium is another substance wbich
has just come into its own. Up to a.
year ago no commercially important use for slenium was known, although for some three or four years
it was one of tho ingredient* enter
ing into a secret process in tlie glass
induslry. lt is now well known
aiming scientists that selenium is an
agent in coloring glass red, and in
decolorizing glass by the use nf
small amounts lo neutralize the
green of ferrous iron. A French
scientist has also utilized it in an
invention by which pictures may lie
transmitted by wire. Like tellurium, selenium is a by-product derived from the refining of copper.
Apparently about twenty tons a year
are now utilized.
Copper Shipments
Shipments nf blister copper from
the Granby company's smelter in
this city for the past week amounted
to 340,000 pounds, bringing the
total shipped for the year to 15,629,-
500 pounds.
America's Most Popular Writer

So rays the American Magazine, and
quotou ihis an a .sample of the most

llneless rhymes Mr. Mason tolls of
a conversation between Charles I.
and the headman on the scaffold:—
I'lmrleB tho First, with stately
walk, made the journey to the block.
As he paced the street, along, silence
fell upon Ihe throng; from that
throng there burst a sigh, for a king
was come to die!
Charles upon the scaffold stood. In
his veins no craven blood; calm, serene, he \ lewed the crowd, while the
headman .t$._d aloud:—
Cheer up Charlie! Smile and sing!
Death's a most delightful thing! 1 will
cure vour hacking cough when I chop
your headpiece off! Headache, toothache—they're a bore. You will
never have them more! Cheer up

Cutting Red Tape
In his youth the late Sir William S.
Gilbert, the dramatist, was employed in ono ol the Government offices
In London. On his first appearance
there he noticed that one of the senior clerks was trying to do his work
while toppling about ln a chair from
which one castor was missing.
The clerk, who found the situation
■iinoving, vented his vexation freely.
Why don't you have the chair
■ne-ided?  asked  young Gilbert?
The department will mend broken
chairs, but the loss of a castor doesn't come within the regulations, explained the clerk. Unless the chair-
leg is broken they won't undertake
Then you have your own remedy,

Skin All Covered

Cuticura Soap and Ointment Cured.
A Quebec man, N, ITrnrl Tardif, of St.
U'imir, wi ilea in u letter duted Mar. lil ,1011:
"I bad a very had skin, ull covered with
eruption, eight years ago. I bave had all of
Imih my shoulders covered wilh it, and tbo
high part of my arms, and my face, hut It
t*. us the wont on my nhoulders. I tried many
different remedies to cure it, but nothing was
•ny good. At last I went to au apothecary,
lie asked mc If X had over used Cuticura
Hoap and Ointment. I told him no, and I
bought a box of Cuticura Ointment and a
take of Cuticura Soap, X used three boxes
nf Cuticura Ointment, but I am glad of
Ihe same, for Cuticura Soap and Ointment
completely cured me of my skin eruption.
I spread the Cuticura Ointment on all tny
aore part**, and I think that In washing my
face with tbe Cuticura Soap, it hindered my
eruption from iicliiiij, and burning, I tried
mnny remedies during three or four years
but Cuticura Snap and Ointment cured me."

Experienced  Cruiser  Describes  Split
Lake Conditions
Interesting observations with regard
to the timber ot the Hudson Bay Region (the southern part of the old
district of Keewatln) are found In the
1911 report of the Director of Forestry, published as part ef the Annual
Report of the Department of the interior for 1911.
Mr. J. T. G. Whyte, an Experienced timber cruiser and fire ranger
(who has since been drowned while
in discharge of his duty) reports on
the conditions of the forest around
Split Lake on an area of about 2400
square miles. This whole territory
was originally covered with forest
The Islands In Split Lake still bear
Spruce, Tamarack and Jnck Pine,
large enough for railway ties, poles
and Iunber.
All the rest of the country has been
burned over at least once within the
past forty or 11 fly yeurs, and the limber which dates from the last Ore,
rarely exceeds three or four inches
in diameter. The shores of Split
Lake have been burned over, on an
average once every season. Fortunately In this district thc soil ls
usually de.aap, and can always support
another crop of trees. The presence
of merchantable forests in protected
situations proves that the young forest now started will become sufficiently valuable to support sawmill and
pulp Industrie: and supply a large
population, If It can be protected from
fire. Very little of Ihe land traversed by Mr. Whyte Is suitable for

Razor* of Centuries Ago
We wear things and use things
dally, ot the origin of which we have
not the slightest Idea, and were we
to be asked concerning their history
we would be at a loss to answer.
This was Illustrated when two
young men well but quietly dressed,
were admiring a well-known picture
of life ln the time of Julius Caesar
which was exhibited ln a shop window.
One of the men remarked, while looking, at the picture, that he wondered
how the Romans kept their faces
smooth, and whether they ever shaved; and If they shaved, what were
their razors like? Neither of tbe
men could answer the question, and
so they Immediately consulted various authorities on the subject and
found to their surprise, that razors
were used tor shaving in a very early
part K the world's history.
.The Egyptian!: used some kind of
a razor, though the Levltlcnl code
expressly forbade the shaving of the
beard, it la believed the primitive
shaving instruments were made of
sharpened flints. Savages ln the
remote Islands scattered throughput
the Pacific, still use two pieces of
flint of the same size for this purpose
and pieces of shells or shark's teeth
are also used.

Threshing With Oxen
The methods and implements of agriculture In Cyprus are still somewhat
primitive, and the light wooden
plough, drawn by oxen, merely turns
up Ihe soil a few Inches. Steam
ploughs, self-binders,, etc., are unknown here hut every effort Is being
made by the Agriculture! Department
to Induce the peasantry to adopt more
scientific methods and modern implements. ^
Ploughing commences in January,
after the winter rains, and about
March or April tlie field is cross
ploughed. Sowing begins, as u rule,
after the autumn rains, and thc harvest takes place at Ihe end of May,
June, July, and August. The grain
is threshed out in a peculiar manner.
It Is placed on the threshing floor,
and threshed out by means of a yoke
of oxen, attached to a board studded
wilh flints, on which sits the driver
and the combined weight of the driver
and the roughness or the flints breaks
the grain. The straw, which is
much broken in Ihis process, Is mixed
with chaff, and used as fodder.

King of the Barbers
Tbe sudden death ot Chaudri Lala
Meah, the head barber ot Madras, at
Veerappa Varar, Coll Street, Myla-
pore, recently, has disclosed interesting details about the working ot the
barber fraternity of Madras.
The fraternity has been In existence for over 120 years. Chaudri ls
commonly known In tho North of India as barrister, or vakil, but the post
amongst the barbers of Madras carrier a much higher position. He is
their head and their Judge. He has
eight councillors, or Jurors, and he
decldeB cases that come up before
him with their aid.
The Chaudrl's post Is a life appointment. When, he dies, forty
days after his death a mass meeting
ot barbers Is held, and the vacancy
Is filled.
The elected man from precedence
should have been a Juror, should be a
man of good birth, education, and
character. The barber fraternity ot
Madras now consists ot 160 Mohammedan barbers, and will meet at the
Mohammedan" barbers' mosque In
Portuguese Church Street, North
Georgetown, which Is supported by
the Mohammedan barbers of Madras,
antl by the fines levied by the Chaudri, to elect their Chaudri from one of
the Jurors, and place on the jury one

The Most Luxurious Train
The Russian Royal special train Is
the ncavlest and most luxurious In
Europe. When it was constructed
It was devised to stand a charge of
dynamite, anjl It cannot bc taken fast
over most of the European lines, because their metals arc too light.
The train contains a small chapel,
with an Icon of peculiar sanctity, a
library, bath-rooms, drawing-room,
dlnlntroom and bed-rooms. The
servants' quarters are at the rear, and
consirl simply of an ordinary van-like
carriage arranged with sleeping-

An Elephant Dentist
The elephant at the Rlverdale Zoo
acts as Its own dentist. A short
tlme^ago It pulled a tooth which had
been- bothering it, the operation being
witnessed by a number of persons
who were watching tlie animal at
the time.
It appeared to be in pain, and worked Its trunk round ln Its mouth as
though to dislodge something unpleasant. At last, after moving its trunk
frantically, the animal drew something from ils mouth. It cast the
tooth thus extracted out of the enclosure. The molar was large, and
had evidently broken off In thc gum,
as all the root aid not come out.
The crown was In a good Btate of
preservation, but there were signs of
decay lower down.

It ls only by getting tbese organs

The real estnte trade negotiated
by the city council with H. C. Kerman last week does not, when
looked at from the viewpoint of a
disinterested observer, appear to
have been made in the best inerests of
the city. The incident has been tbe
subject of many warm debates in tbe
business community during the past
week, and some ugly innuendos
have heen made against tbe council. Mr. Kerman was given two of
tbe choicest lots in tbe city for one
of doubtful value near the Kettle
Valley line tracks. For this good
trade on Mr. Kerman's part, no
blame can be attached to that gentleman, because every man is entitled to make the best business bargain that he possibly can. The coun

to transfer Mr. Kerman's lot to tbe

the'recent agreement with tbat company. This is true. But tbe citi-

the best type of initial rests and re-

spring from the most casually planted seed. Do the young men ol today understand that agriculture haB
hecoine one of the most enchanted
To the old-time farmer it would
have seemed the height of absurdity
to compare individual clover heads,
to determine which was the best to
breed from. Two heads of timothy
are no more unlike than two heads
of clover, yel the hay produced by
the progeny of one head has been
known to weigh twice as much to
the acre as that produced by the offspring of the other. It was scientific
plant-breeding that made this discovery.
Look at the milkweed. Its tender
young leaves make excellent greens,
but how ahout the silky floss that
floats from he seed-pods, and the
"milk" that exualeB f'O n the sev-

stalk. Some one, some time, will
find a way to use them profitably.
We have as yet no cure for pear-
blight, peach-yellows, ttilher-tip or
Bcaly bark, although euch is a
source of great loss to fruit growers.
Some investigator of plant diseases

Soil investigations, plant physiology, insect pests and parasites,
diseases of animals, the preservation

unexplored corners of the farm.
Old prospectors say that although
hunting and digging gold is one of
the hardest forms of manual lahor,
ii is one of the least tiring. The
liours fly because there is always the
lute of possible nuggele just ahead.
I'u tbose who see its limitless opportunities, agriculture offers a similar
sitisfaclion. No man will find farming a dull business who lias the gooil
sense to fix upon some speciality for
investigation, and the brains to discover what nature bo surely yields to
persisleucy.—Youth's Companion.
Women and War
Women, liy nature tender and
compassionate, ought to be hilterly
oppo.-t d to war. But it is a fuel that
women have again and again urged
men on to war; the gentlest of women have from lime immemorial ail-
iiaieia.il the fearless and powerful
warrior who could heal down his
opponents" with a single blow
Women have suffered much from
war, but they have not in tht past
done much to end it.
It is a fundamental human instinct, working for thc preservation
j of a virile ince, that compels the
' woman, wbo dreads the sight of su'-
1 fering, to admire tbe bravery of the
man who iB willing to risk hiB life
in battle. But in these latter days
we have learned lhat there is moral
as well as physical courage, and
that there may be bloodless victories,
more glorious than Gettysburg or
Women have realized this more
fully, perhaps, than men. Florence
Nightingale and Clara Barton have
won undying fame by their self-
sacrificing labors to mitigate the
horrorB of war. It was a woman,
Baroness von Sutner,wlio persuaded
Alfred Nobel to devote piut of his
fortune to founding a prize for those
who advance the cause of peace. In
every country women are foremoBt
in the promotion of that cause.
When men come lo love justice
aid n ercy more than military glory,
it will be partly because the pity
that women feel for the victims of
war has caused them to delight no
longer in the blood-stained hemes aaf
the battlefield And then, at last,
war itself will cease.—Youth's Companion.

At times while the meal lasted Mr.
Bowser smiled blandly, at otber timet
complacently. He also uttered a
chuckle now and tben and poked himself lo the ribs for a good fellow, a
ttiarp fellow, a fellow tbat knew a gold
brlckfrom a summer squash..
And Mrs. Bowser also smiled and
made throaty sounds and put on know-
ng looks, and the cat winked at the
took, and all went off like a New
