Mr. Pineo Talks on the Doukhobor Situation in This
Province
j
Realizes the Seriousness of
Conditions After Visiting Colony
J. V. Pineo, from the sttorney-
general's office, Victoria,.who has
been spending a w ek in the oity
familiarizing himself with the Doukhobor situation, with a view of
making a report to the government,
met the members of the executive
of the board of trade in tbeir rooms
on Tuesdsy night for the purpose of
discussing the question witb them.
The attendance was representative,
and tbe discussion was freely psr-
ticipated in by all present. The
temper of tbe mem hers of (he board
plainly indicated thst they either
wanted the question settled right or
a change of government.
"I came here in an unassuming
way," said Mr. Piueo, "and on
tnat account was able to get closely
in touch with the Doukhobors, who
consider that tbe government it
friendly toward them,' and learned
things from and about them whicb
it would have been hard to convince me of before I came to Grand
Forks. I am anxious to get at the
true status of the trouble in an unbiased manner, but I am candid
enough to admit that I was inclined
to sympathize witb the Doukhobor
side of tbe controversy before my
arrival here." Mr. Pineo explained
thst it would bave been difficult for
anyone not acquainted with tbe
facts to have formed a contrary
opinion in tbe face of such a document as the ''Blakemore report,"
trom whicb be quoted several paragraphs. "I have reason oow, however," he continued, "to cbange my
views on tbe question, and from
knowledge I bave gained since coming bsre I cannot do otherwise tban
concur with tbe people of Graud
Forks tbat some action must be
taken immediately by tbe government to settle the question once and
foi all ss far as the province is concerned; sud whatever form il will
take, whether it will lie tue enforcement uf tbe existing laws or the enactment of uew legislation to cover
the particular needs of the community, it will be of such a nature
tbst il will bring tbe Doukhobor
colony into steiot compliance witb
wilh tbe laws of tbis province.
"1 feel convinced," said Mr.
Pineo, "that tbere are uo marriages
in tbe Doukhobor community here;
they are not married by a minister
or priest of sny sect,and do not even
appear before a registrar, and therefore in my opinion it is a difficult
matter to find out who are the parents or guardians of tbe children,
so that it is impossible for tbe school
trustees at the present time to enforce the school act and compel the
ohildren of tbe colony to attend
school. Tbe refusal of the Doukhobors to register tbeir births makes
tbe matter doubly difficult."
Tbe  unsanitary    condition    in
live nnme up for a great rival nf die
oussion. "I am of the opinion,"
said Mr. Pineo. "that the board of
health should (enforce tbe laws in
tbat respect, "In the opinion of tbose
present at the meeting tbis was considered a dangerous undertaking un-
lees bscked up by a good force of
men, as any further interference
with the colony would certainly be
the signal for trouble, which might
require a strong force to deal with.
Mr. Pineo considered he would, on
hi* return to Victoria, havp no easy
task in convincing Mr. Bowser of
the actual conditions existing in the
Doukhobor colony, hut if he failed
to do so be would favor a delegation
being sent from here to pres* npon
the government the necessity of
legislation to bring the Doukhobors
under proper control.

Is Rescued After Receiving
Slight Bruises and Some
Hara Jolts
Willie Ruckle, aged about 14
years, son of the late William Ruckle, had an unpleasant experience
witb an nln iated bull last Saturday, narrowly esca, ing being gored
to death. The boy ad entered the
pasture for the purpose of driving
the cattle home, when the animal
became enraged aud tacked him.
At the first onrush the bull booked
the lad and threw him over his back
and proceeded to gore him. Tbe
boy, however, succeeded in dodging the attacks Engineer W. A.
Harris, of the C.P R., happened to
be passing with his train st tbe
time, and seeing the youth's danger, Btopped and haBt-ne. to bis
assistance. The boy came out of
tbe encounter with a bruised eye
and a severe shaking up.
Big Money in Trapping
A. A. Shubert, Inc., Chicago, the
largest house in tbe world dealing
exclusively in American raw furs,
in a letter to the editor of The Sun,
ssys in part as follows:
'Does the average farmer stop to
consider the thousands and even
millions of dollars that are paid oui
every year in tbe large fur bouses
for skins of the "farm yard peels'?
Tbe mink, a menace to the chicken
coop; tbe skunk, muskrat, weasel
and otber fur bearing animals,
classed ss "varmints" and consid-
sidered a nuisance to tbe crops, ull
bave tbeir intrinsic vslue, and it
would do well for many to forget
tbe nuisance end of tbe story and
look at tbe profit side.
The money picked up by tbe wise
fsrmer boy in a season, to ssy nothing of the professional trapper revenue, ie something that would make
a great many people sit up and take
notice. Just a few years ago it wss
hardly worth while to skin these
animals aud ship lhe fur, but since
the supply of nearly every fur-hear-
ing animal, with the pneaihle excep
tion of the skunk, has decreased   at
| gathering his collection of raw fur.
! How many thousands of rats, mink
and otber furs are graded down to
second and third class every season
because tbe shipper did not have
sense enough to leave his gun on tbe
rack and purchase a comparatively
cheap Btesl trap! lf a person went
to buy a fur coat or bat, and he was
shown one shot full of holes, or with
even one hole in il, he would laugh
at the dealer who tried to sell it to
him. Yet many a shipper does not
seem to realize that every time be
shoots an animal, he practically
cuts the value of the fur in two. The
money that is saved by trapping one
or two mink or skunk will more
tbsn make up for tbe cost of tbe
traps, and it is easily tbe best in the
long run.
Ab most every one knows, the
time to trap is when the fur is prime.
Nevertheless mauy a thoughtless
trapper, or would-be trapper, proceeds lo kill tbe fur bearers all sum
mer, to dig them out of their deus
wheu they are breeding,and in every
way possible to exterminate the fur-
bearers in his locality. Of course no
good can come out of this practice,
and he might just as well wait until
the fur is prime ss to kill the animals in the summer wben their furs
are almost worthless.
One peculiarity about tbe American raw fur collection of last season
is the fact tbat over tbree million
rats, as well as thousands of mink,
skunk and other fur-bearing animals
were taken from tbe central states,
namely, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, etc. This will
dispel all thought from tbe minds of
tbe persons wbo imagine tbat there
is no (ur left in tbe thickly popu
lsted states, and it is also a fact that
tbe fur collected from tbese states
wss the best and most  satisfactory.
The golden opportunity of the
farmer boy to pick up a neat little
pile of money in bis spare time tbis
winter should not be overlooked,
snd tbe exercising of a little common borse sense will go a long ways
towards detenu ing the amount of
bis earnings.

Louis Johnson, manager and part
owner of tbe Union mine in Gloucester camp, was in the city on Monday purcnasing the winter's supplies for lhe camp. Mr, Johnson
stated tbat lumher iB being hauled
to the camp from the terminus of
the Kettle Valley lihe as fast possible for tbe construction of buildings
for the comfort of the workmen.
Teu men are employed at the mine,
and it is tbe intention of the management to ship a carload of ore
each week to the Granby smelter.
It is stated that tbe mine is now developed sufficiently to ship a carload daily if the roads were in good
condition. Tbe value of tbe ore has
never been made public. It is well
known, however, tbat tbe Union is
one of tbe few properties in the
province whicb is paying for its own
development. Some people intimately conversant witb the conditions of tbe property, estimate that
the ore is netting about $85 per ton.

NONE SO EASY
Ships Are Longest Lived Transports
Ornaments last longer than anything
else that man makes. There are
brooches' and necklaces ln museums
more than forty centuries old. Monuments, perhaps, stand second, and
houses third. .The lite of furniture
Is shorter still. There Is very little
fitinitm-e left which dates beyond the
ycivr 1500. Pictures last longer than
furniture, and there aie paintings still
in fair condition which has weathered
Blx centuries of life.
Of all machines made by num, probably none can compare foi- long life
with tlie clock. The life of the clock
ls ns much longer than that of any
oilier, machinery as the life of n man
Ib to that of a dog.
The French city of Rou.n has a
great clock which was built in the
year 1389, and is still keeping good
time. Except for cleaning and a few
necessary repairs, it has never stopped during a period of more than Ave
centuries. It strikes the hours, and
chimes the quarters.
There are still afloa*. at least a dozen sailing vessels which have weathered tive storms of centuries. Tho record Is, or rather was, held by the
Italian vessel Anita. . Built in Genoa
In 1548, she made her last voyage In
1902. That was from Teneriffe to Naples. She was thus more than 350
years old. Alas! she has been broken up—a cruel fate for such a wonderful old relic.
Steamships seldom last more than
forty years. Ot those built between
1815 and 1835, there is not, we believe
a single one afloat. The life of the
modern steamship 13 much shorter
than that of her wooden predecessor.
As for warships, they are usually
scrapped at the age of Iwenty, if not
before.
Only last yet-.- the sailing vessel
Seal left Bid-fo d for Durban, a distance of C.000 miles. The Seal was
built at Southampton In 1816, and in
1823 was driven from her moorings at
Poole, and was found ln a turnip field.
One of Ihe big engines of the I-ori-
lon and Northwestern railway has jnst
-ompleted a distance of 2,000,000
miles. An Englsh locomotive travels
mi an average, only about 20,000 miles
t year, so this wonderful performance
Is equal to me hundred years' service
M an ordinary basis. A a matter of
fact, the engine In question lias been
worked live times as hard as the av-
_rage, and has accomplished the task
ivlth'.ii a period of twenty years.
Quite how long a well built locomotive will last in running order, Is
liardly known. Six years ago the famous '1-ord of Isles' was scrapped
»t Swindon. Eh.- was one of the famous Great Western broad gauge en-
Sln.sB, and was built ln 1842. She was
in perfect running order up to the
_nd of Iter long life of more than sixty
fears.
Headquarters
Do you have as much trouble finding your cuff and collar buttons as
you used to?
No; 1 always find, 'em in one place
now.
Indeed!
Yes; I go to the vacuum cleaner.
Will Sweep it Clean of Dreadnoughts
Swat the Flyer!
I Thai is the battle cry of the mod-
I eru dreadnought battleship. The fly-
j ing machine is today the greatest ter-
' ror of ihe men who go down to the
; sea in $15,000,000,000 floating forts.
! The fact is, th..t tbe navies of the
[ world are feverishly trying, on the
1 one hand, to find a way to avoid the
! Bird machines and on the other hand
' building ns many war aeroplanes as
I they can.
I In considering the effect of an aeroplane in hattie, too many people are
apt to pit a single plane against a
battleship. How easy to puj, oue or
two or half a dozen flyers out of
business.
But navy men have not fallen Into
this error. They know It would He
just as foolish for a naval command
er to send one aeroplane against a
battleship as lt would for a military
commander to send one machine gun
against a brigade ot troops. They
know lhat then- problem figures out
about as follows-
A battleship costs from $10,000,000
to $15,000,000, it carries 11 crew of
1,000 men.
An aeroplane costs from $7,000 to
$10,000, carries a crew of not more
than two men.
Therefore, to be sure of success
against a battleship, the proper tactics would be to send a fleet ot from
25 to 100 aeroplanes, or even 200,
into tlie fight.
Suppose there were 100 in our fleet
and fifty of them would be destroyed
and their crews drowned. It Isn't
altogether probable that tills would
happen, but suppose lt did. Iu men
we would lose 1.00 lives, In money
less .ban a million.
But, nt that, th.re Isn't t. chance
ln the world that the battleship would
escape. So the count against the airship loss would be the destruction of
a $15,000,000 battleship, the loss of
1.000 lives. \
It would take at least a year to
build another battleship while the loss
of the 50 aeroplanes would be replaced
in a month or two.
The aeroplane would be the hardest
sort of a mark to hit from the deck
of u rolling ship. But how about
hitting 100 aeroplanes?
The protection afforded the ship by-
its deck armor wouldn't be very great
in a rain of high explosives such as a
fleet of aeroplanes could drop on it. It
was proven by the work ot air scoutB
in Turkey that the piercing of a wing
two or three times by a bullet does
not put an aeroplane out of action.
In Tripoli, Italian airmen were able
lo drop bombs in Turkish camps and
do tremendous execution and then get
away. So far In warfare there have
been two men killed and several severely wounded while flying.
In a trial ln Paris, ..n ex-American
army ollicer demonstrated a device
which shoots as accurately from an
aeroplane as the big guns of a warship
shoot—70 per cent of hits.
Now suppoBe we send our fleet of
100 air craft against a battleship and
each ship drops two bombs with 70
per cent of hits. That is 140 bombs
out,of 200 landing. One would be
enough to wreck the ship.
So we can readily believe that these
little craft that carry but two men
and coat so little will become the terror of sea fighting.
First, uecau8e of the deadly nature
of the bombs carried by the airmen.
Second, because there are ao many
air craft against each Individual ship.
Third, because no ship hus yet been
built or ever will be built that can
get away from an aeroplane fleet that
ts once started after lt.

Hunger Hooliganism In Russia
One of the results of the oppressive
laws and backward conditions tn Russia generally today Ib the appearance
during the past year or two, of hunger hooliganism. Assaults, depredations on property, robberies and alml-
iar crimes are of dally occurrence,
and the police are apparently Indifferent. The situation haB become so
serious that Maklakow, minister ot the
Interior, recently called a conference
of governors and other high govern-
i.irnt officials to consider measures
.igalnBt the evil. It was, decided to
give the governors special power., to
deal with the hooligans summarilv
without trial. This measure proved
to the liking of the provincial autocrats
and they applied It bo vigorously thnt
tlie minister was compelled to advise
them to use their power with more discrimination. But Russian hooliganism has lt causes far deeper than
such measures go. lt ls no doubt
mainly due to the dire poverty of the
people and to alcoholism, which Is

An Idecl Inspires Desire
It was some time ago that the highest and truest of ideals of the human
race were started.
This Is perhaps connected with the
fact that much of our best safeguarding comes from nature. For instance
frequently a woman, even of full natural InBtlncts, has no special desire
for progeny. Then a- strong love
comes, and to what was only a vague
general idea before, that she naturally would have children, is added a
real longing, an Intense Imagining of
how pleasant a little creature would
be, and of what a solei._n and Joyful
possession it would be together. Desires grow when the ideal surroundings are prepared. Nature takes care
oi us. She Is often careless, but
judge by her beBt, and wonderful Is
Blie in harmony and depth.
They Hust    .'ass.ngeri
In the land of the Rising Bun there
are no specified rates and regulations
In regard to managing street cars, and
the result la that the conductors do
practically us they please with the
Internal management of the vehicles.
To effect reforms in this connection
a crusade has been started In Japan,
which is every day gatherins in numbers and in importance. It i declared
that the conductors ought to be forbidden to push passengers into the cars
by sheer force.
When a car is full, lt Ib full and
there ls no way to get In.* lt except
by being rude to thoie occupying it.
Now, If the conductor is honestly convinced that there Is room for an extra
passenger In the crowded car, he ought
himself to be compelled to find a place
for you before ordering you to enter.
But this does not bother him In the
least. He simply tells you that you
must go In, and compels you to make
room for himself.
In tlie circumstance, the only thing
to be done Is to *eav - the car and
take another, but In this caso the conductor will not return your ticket, so
that you will be practically obliged
to pay double fare.
Another ground of complaint is that
> inductors sometimes refuse or neglect
to stop at the place your ticket la
marked for, and thu. you are carried
several hundred yards out of your
way.
Diet and Nationality
Among modern nations the greatest eaters are the British. Germans,
French, and Americans—tlie ruling
people of our civilization. The diet
ot the Spaniards and the Italians Is
notably less substantial than that of
the British and Germans, just as their
brains are less active and original,
says the 'Family Doctor.' The Americans are on the average the greatest eaters In tlle world said Carlyle to
Emerson. The best thing I know of
that country is that ln it r. man can

GROWING 8TRONGER
Apparently With Advancing Age
"At the age of 60 years I collapsed
from excessive coffee drinking," writes
a Western man. Tea Is just aa Injurious, because It contains cai.'clne, the
same drug found In coffee. "For four
years I shambled about with the aid
of crutches or cane, most of the time
unable to dress myself without help.
"My feet were greatly swollen, my
right arm was shrunken and twisted
Inward, the fingers of my right hand
were clenched and could not be extended except with great effort and
pain. Nothing seemed to give nie
more than temporary relief.
"Now, during all thia time and for
about 30 years previously, I (.rank
dally an average of 6 cups of strong
coffee—rarely missing, a meal.
"My wife at last took my caso Into
her wn hands and bought boi ie Poatum. She mude It according to directions and I liked it fully as well aB
the best high-grade coffee.
"Improvement set In at once. In
nbout 6 months I began to -work a
little, and tn less than a year I was
very much better, Improving rapidly
from day to day. I am now lu far better health than most men of my years
and apparently growing stronger with
advancing age.
"I am busy every day nt somo kind
of work and am able to keep up with
the procession without a cane. The
arm and hand that were once almost
useless, now keep far ahead ln rapidity of movement and beauty of penmanship."

A Paying Camera
A camera Is delightful summer
companion and when the photographer
has passed the really amateur stage,
she may consider the pos.lblllty of
n-xlting some money by her pictures,
or at least making her camera pay expenses. Selling pictures as Illustrations to periodicals. Is one money-
making method. Newspapers, trade
Journals, farm Journals, outing magazines, general magazines, are all in
the market for pictures, and their specific needs Bhould b careful'}- studied
by the amateur photographer. The
pictures for any magazine are clear
black-and-white prints, with the people or the particular object centred
and emphasized In such a manner that
the rolnt of the picture is easily obvious.
Outside ot the money gained, picture-taking enlarges one's view-point.
One's observation grows greatly under the spur of finding material for
the camera and one's sense of beauty
suddenly gains a new self-respect
through ha-lng a definite business to
attend to.

Compulsory Matrimony
The declining marriage rate ln so
many countries Is causing all sorts of
suggestions to be made for inducing
people to enter the state of matrimony
such as the taxing of bachelors and
conferring social prh lieges on tliose
who have large families. A month
or two ago the rural council of Trim,
ordered Its bachelors to marry or quit
the municipal cottages. But all these
are exceedingly mild measures compared wltb a proposal which comes
from Trieste. The proposal ls that all
bachelors who have attained their
thirtieth year—a time when a man Is
at hlj prime according to Mahomet
—should be summoned before the Syndicate together with all -_>insters who
have read d the age of twenty-flve.
Then, after a medical examination,
those whom the doctors consider
healthy are to have their Lames placed
tn separate urns tnd drawn two by
two. The couples whose names are
paired are to be married Immediate,-
ly. This 1 - making a lottery ot marriage with a vengeame.

I am convinced that we make a
great mistake In depriving one sex
ot voice ir. public matters, and tbat
we could in no way increase the attention, the Intelligence, and the devotion which may be brought to the
solution of social problems as hy enfranchising our women. Even lf In a
ruder state of society the Intelligence
of one sex suffices for the management of common Interests, the vastly
moro Intricate, more delicate, and
more Important questions which the
progress of civilization makes of public moment, require the intelligence
of women as of men, and that we never can obtain until we Interest tliem

to believe that very much of the inattention, the flippancy, ths want of

that we debar our women from taking

FRIDAY, OCTOBER , 311915
The Sun defies all superstitions and today boldly enters upon its thirteenth year
of existence, We intend to
fittingly celebrate the event
as soon as we can obtain a
permit from the improvement
association.
The Victoria government
anuounces that an inspector
of electric metres will visit
Grand Forks next week. The
only office that appears to be
vacant in British Columbia at
present is that of an inspector
of provincial inspectors.
The tide of political fortune
is turning in our favor. South
Bruce, in Ontario, yesterday
elected a Liberal member of
parliament by a majority of
124. Iu the last election the
Conservative candidate had a
majority of 103. The campaign, it is reported, was
fought almost entirely on the
naval question. Ontario, evidently, does not believe that
emergency exists.
The provincial government
is very liberal towards its
subsidized newspapers. Some
small rural papers, with a few
hundred subscribers, are paid
seven or eight hundred dollars a year. In return, the
papers load the members of
the government with fulsome
praise and hide their shortcomings. There is no other
country on the face of the
earth where this condition of
affairs exists, or would be tolerated. And the poor taxpayer has to pay for it all.
A few more election results like South Bruce, and
the newspapers which are in
the habit of changing their
political views to suit tnt par
ty in power will commence to
cast anchors to windward.
] (1) "I discussed the Oriental
| question witb Sir Edward Grey, but
I can not tell you what he said. (2)
, The money situation is improving
: but Canada will have to pay more
{or ber loans. (3) England is depressed over the action of the senate
1 on the naval bill." And this is all
the premier bas to show tor tbe eight
or ten thousand dollar trip be hae
enjoyed at the expense of our none
too opulent taxpayers.—Victoria

IU Increased Use ai I Food May Influence Diplomacy
Figures show that tho world Ib just

ana as food. If the present development continues, the acreage devoted to banana-growing muBt rapidly
Increase. This can be easily done,
for the areas suitable have as yet
only been touched. Improved refrigeration and quick Bteam service will
continue to widen the area ln which
the product can be marketed, and besides Its present use as a fruit, lt
will be used as it now is ii. the tropica where It is boiled green as a vegetable, and manufactured into a confection known as banana figs. The
development of the banana flour industry also promaes to open a market for the product of areas too distant to profit by the demand for fresh
fruit, juat as the perfection ot the
manufacture ot copra, the dried meat
of the cocoanut haa opened up a new
industry reaching to the farthest Islands of the Pacific.
The increased production of the
banana In ita natural atate, and the
diversification ot Its uses promise to
introduce a new and hitherto neglected factor in our good supply. If present development continues, lt will
raise the Caribbean region from its
dependence on toTelgn markets for
food to one of the regions from which
an important part of the world's food
supply will be drawn. The wheat
fields of the Dakotas and Manitoba
will meet as one of their competitors
in feeding the world, the banana
plantations of the American Mediterranean. An immediate consequence
ot the development of the direct trade
with Europe, now just beginning ls to
threaten the supremacy of the United States in some of the Central
American markets. People buy their
goods, other things being equal, in
the countrlea' where their own producte find their beat aale. lf improved tranaportatlon facilities for the banana trade develop between the Caribbean and European ports, it la but
natural that European manufactured
gooda will be carried on tha return
voyage. One of the moat important
and from our paat experience, let us
remember, one ot the most delicate
problems with wlilch our men of state
have to deal, ls the diplomacy of the
Caribbean.

A Hpeaking clock hae just been

which calls out the time clearly and

could possibly peacefully bury ourselves ln our work without any fear
of missing an important engagement.
We could surrender ourselves to the
joys ot sport or talk, when every
quarter of an hour we are reminded
by the warning voice. In the morning we need not worry over an alarm;
the voice of the clock, which we can
make quick or slow at pleasure, will
do the waking. It we don't want to
hear the voice of conscience, we need
only switch oft the machinery. The
invention ls due to th i Idea of a Berlin man, named Selon, whose Idea was
carried Into practice after long wrestling with dlfllculties by a man named
Max Markus. It may prove useful to
astronomers, and with a slight change
in Its working It could be made to call
out the i ames ot the stations ln our
railway carriages. To exploit this Invention a company lo being formed

Obadlah Binks was orte of those

Ills passions to capitulate to the

maker Cupid. To put it more concisely, ho had fallen In love.
Unfortunately for Obadlah, however, lt was a case of unrequited affection, for the lady of his choice
had made it plainly visible from time
to time that his attentions were positively objectionable.
One day Obadlah turned up at her
abode, nothing daunted by his previous experiences. He was ushered
Into the drawing-room by her ten-
year-old brother, Billy.
Is your sister In? asked Binks, ner-
vously. .
No, replied the other, promptly.
She's Just gone out.
Ah! sighed the lovo-strlcken Binks

The summer montha are the moBt

entry, come on so quickly that often
a little one is beyond aid before the
mother realizes he is ill. The mother
must be on her guard to prevent theae
troubles, or if they do come on suddenly to cure them. No other medicine la of such aid to mothera during
hot weather as la Baby'a Own Tablets.

Nor was he taking any risks at the

In the early nours of the morning
the plaintive voice ot the 'boots'
Bounded outside his door.

Please, sir, came the answer, you

No; you bet I haven't, responded
the wily William. They're under my

She professed to take an Immense
interest ln the professor's wonderful
collection ot mineral ores.
She was examining the specimens

struck her fancy, said: What do yov
call this, professor?
That ts sliver ore, waa the answer.
Very Interesting, I am sure, she
replied. But however do they obtain
tbe sliver.   /
Oh, lt is a simple process, They
merely smelt lt, madam.
Than the old lady placed the ore
to her nose, sniffing loudly said: I
have smelt lt, too, but even with my

Tbe most beautiful lake In the world
la, Como and the most beautiful bay
the bay of Naples. Both hare been thf
lecne of many a story, real and fictt-
Uous; both have attracted visitors tram
all parts of tbe world. Tbe beauty of
Ibe former bursts upon one st once;
Ibat ot the latter ts of slow growth.
Como Is always much tbe same; the
bay ot Naples ls ever changing.
Sorrento, overlooking this beautiful
bay. Is built on a circular ledgo ot rocks
tome three hundred feet blgh, following the curvature of the shore. There
are hotels and villas fronting the water,
ionic of tbem built In the center of or
inge groves. Une morning a gentle*
man emerged from ono of these hotels,
sauntered down a walk, plucking an
grange by tbe way, and st the end
itood upon a marble balcony looking
Iown upon tbe waves far below.
Yachts und fishing boats were rocking
an the surface; and from tbo island of
Capri a-little steamer was bounding
along toward Sorrento.
A young lady bud set up an easel on
Ibe balcony and was attempting te
transfer the scene to canvas. Tbe gentleman paused u short distance behind
ber and looked nt her work. Conscious
ot his presence, she turned.
"Pardon mo, slgnorlna," he said ln
Italian and was about to walk on when
abe snld ln English:
"1 don't understand Italian."
"Ah, you are an American, I pel
telijol"
"Wby not English?"
"We Americans are easily distinguished from tbe English by our accent Permit me to compliment you on
the way you are getting on with yonr
picture."
"I am not getting on at all."
"Tou have sketched your outline very
well."
"But how shall 1 get that deep blue
of the water, bow that delicate veil of
mist tbat hangs over Capri and aimoat
bides Iachla farther on?"
"Vour work will be tbe more dlffl-
enlt because you cannot get the aame
scene on two consecutive daya. Tomorrow tbe water will be perbapa a
pale green, then a light Instead of ■
lark blue, aa tt la today. Quite likely
•ren by noon we aball have Ischla
resting on a aea of quicksilver.''
The girl leaned back ln ber cbalr
discouraged.
"I would advise you to put In auch

a certain coloring to transfer to yoar
canvas. It you can get lt ln before II
changes, be tt so; lf not you must get
In as mucb aa you can, then watt till
tbe aame conditions come again."
"Exactly tbe aame conditions will
never come again."
"Ton are rlgbt But you don't need
lo copy. An artist doesn't do tbat He
takes a landscape, a model, any subject you like, and ldeall_.es lt Hia
Intention la not to get something better than tbe original, but something
better than tbe result of an attempt
lo transfer the original to canvas."
"It I could only get a tithe of whit
we see before oa on the canvas I
abould be satisfied."
"Are you an amateur or a profee-
atonal?'
"I simply desire to make a picture te
aell on my return to America to belp
ent the expense of my trip abroad."
"Well, don't be discouraged. With
your permission I will criticise yonr
work aa yon proceed. I am a profee-
alonal critic and may belp you."
"Thonk yoo rery mncb, but I doubt
If I can produce anything worthy of
your criticism."

Bbe asked Hlnard how abe could hart
done It, and be told her that It waa
aarl accident and part her own artla-
ae invention, tnougn ine former eouM

Miss Glfford, as all eojourners al

and whenever abe returned tbt in

eyea. Sbe waa very much encouraged,

eluded that her Improvement muat bl
due to the criticisms passed upon het
work by Mlnard. "Tbere may be artistic ability ln me," ahe said to .blm,
"bnt it would never come out without
yonr drawing lt out"
At last tbe painting was finished, and
Miss Glfford took ber departure foi
Naples. Mlnard advised ber fo offei
her picture ln Rome when she arrived
there rather for the purpose of dlt
playing tban selling it, tor tbe chiel
purchasers of pictures In Italy ara
Americans, and they usually buy thosi
which bear the names of artists whl
have made a name.
Mlnard Joined her In Naples, where

them 2,000 years before by Vesuvius.
Miss Gilford preceded ber new found
friend to Rome, and before her departure be kindly offered to pack hei
painting for ber. Sbe kindly accept
ed hla offer, and wben be returned 11
to hor properly boxed be gave ber tht
name of a dealer ln Rome, with whom
he advised her to leave It on exhibition
And so lt was tbat the accidental
meeting of these two persons at Sor
rento was renewed at Naples, and
alnce travelers from the south of Italy
must go north It waa likely that they
might meet all tbe way ap to Milan
And at every parting lt was evident
that the next meeting would be mora
cordial.
When Miss Glfford reached Romi
ahe called on the dealer, and he sent t»
her botel for tha picture. Soon aftel
this when she saw it framed she wai
astonished at the remarkable changi
the framing had produced in It II
was tbe aame scene, but under tbe in
fluence of the surrounding gilt lt wai
limply beautiful. It seemed to require the illuminating properties to
bring out the colors.
The next- time she went Into the
shop the dealer Informed her that bei
painting waa sold.
"Soldi" she exclaimed.
"Tea, aignorina. Toa directed me to
Mil it did you not? It bas aot yet
been removed. If tbere la any mistake
please let me know lt at once. In case
of a picture like that I don't wish to
make a blunder."
"How mucb did It bring?' asked the
artist aghast
"Forty-five hundred francs."
"Forty-five hundred francs!"
"Tea, aignorina. Are you dlsap
pointed?"
"How did yoa get to mucb for It?"
"The artist Is a rising young American who It making t name "
"What name?"
"B. Minard."
"Minardi"
"Tes, aignorina. Tbe signature la
genuine, isn't it?"
Miss Glfford stood mute for a few
momenta, storing at tbe dealer, tben
told blm to let her tee tbe picture. He
took her to bla packing room and
ahowed it to ber, potting his finger oa
the name ln the lower left band cor
ner, E. Mlnard.
Mlsa Glfford atood looking at tl- few
daubs tbat spelled "Mlnard" for a long
while without speaking. A light waa
aiowly creeping In upon ber brain. Two
emotions met and mingled. There was
disappointment that she bad not proved
herself an artist and pleasure that her
friend bad imposed upon ber to ber advantage, for ahe aaw that be bad substituted bis own picture for hers. There
was another emotion more in evidence
than either of tbe other two. Surely a
man who would do such a thing for t
woman muat have for ber more than a
friendly interest
"Is It all right aignorina?" asked the
dealer.
"All right? Oh, yet, of course, it'a all
right"
"I will give you tht money less the
commission."
"Certainly."
Miss Glfford took the bills he handed
ber and left the shop. Mlnard bad given
her bis address In Rome and hnd asked
her to send him her card on her arrival. Sho sent It at once, and the same
evening he called upon ber.
"Mr. Mlnard, wby did yon Impose
opon me?"
"How Impose upon you?" be aaked
ihamefncedly
"About the picture."
"PUMon me," banging Bt head,
"How did yon manage It?"
"Well, when yon wtnt oat to drive or
(a walk or on excursions while at Sorrento I feed the maid to bring me yoar
jlcture and Improved it a bit Mean-
while I waa painting the tame scene
nyself. Tben yon made it very easy
tor me by giving ma yoar picture to
jack. I packed my own and kept yours.
Vine bos perhaps a money value above
roars, b,ut yours has • value to mt
leyond price."
Sbe bad aent for him to hand him tht
noney she had received from the deal-
*r, but these last few words had a
ueaning that changed the altuation.
'Ie declared that the picture she bad
tainted was of far more value to blm
han the one be had painted himself.
The exchange waa in bla favor. Ht
legged her to permit It
Nevertheless, alnce bla painting had
iroduced enough money to pay for her
rip, she could not reconcile her con-
cience to. accepting lt till the matter

which ended ln the swift Seattle fishing boat being taken into Vancouvei
at the end ol the Wm. Jolliffe'a tow-
line.
The Wm. Jolliffe is one of the most
famous tug boats in maritime annals.
Twenty-five years ago, when she was
a new boat, she was the pride of the
Mersey. Many and many a time sha
left the port of Liverpool loaded up
to the gunwales with coal, bound
thousands of miles away on a feat cf
deep sea towing. Sometimes it was
to bring home a big vessel that had
been salved in the Indian Ocean, oi
the Southern Pacilic. Lying low on
the water, her big beam and deep
draught shows the weight of powerful
engines and heavy boiler equipment
she carries. She appeared to my ad.
"miring juvenile eyes in those days to
be able to travel as fast wilh a big
Bailing ship at the end of her tow-line
as without any drag on her heels. On
one memorable occasion she towed a
wrecked vessel stern lirst all the way
from the Cape of Good Hope to tha
Mersey at a speed that was in itsell
quite a feat. For the last three years
the Wm. Jolliffe has been engaged in
the fishery protection service on ths
Pacific coast, keeping a sharp lookout
for poachers. And here is where tha
Wm. Jolliffe aroused the' animosity ol
the Seattle fishermen, who make theii
rendezvous off the banks of Vancouvei
Island. At the sight of bad weathei
the Seattle boats are wont to run loi
shelter to the coves and harbors ol
Vancouver Island. Some suspicious
folk think thef are glad of the excuse
at times in order to replenish theit
bait. They are immune from seizure
so long as tlie weather is too bad tc
enable them to put to sea. At sucb
a time the Wm. Jolliffe has a nasty
knack of making a trip up and down
the west coast, and leading the wa;
oift to sea for the assembled craft.
If the Jolliffe can put to sea, then
they must follow on peril of forfeiture
of their boat and gear. Many and
many is the hot imprecation that is
hurled at the stout little cralt as she
sets the pace fc a game of "follow
my leader" out over the bars of the
west coast harbors.

Alcades, the North now does good service as a revenue cutter out ol Nanaimo. Later the Kestrel seized the
Francis Cutting and the Levi Woodbury. The Francis Cutting now plies
as*a tug out of Vancouver, but the
Woodbury, which was only msde ta

When the Elk Lake branch ol tne

Railway was opened recently for traffic and the occasion brought together
town officials and townspeople, the
mayor of Elk Lake, turning to Mr.
Jacob-Lewis Englehart, chairman of'
the T. & N. 0. Commission, said:
"We are well satisfied with what you

more to nsk." Small communities
an usually large in their demands
and their wants are not easily satisfied. Hut this compliment, unsolicited,
of course, but not unmerited, was more
substantially expressed when a huge
key of native silver was presented to
the man who had labored hard and
long to bring about such a consummation.
Mr. Englehart himself is a striking
figure, says H. E. Willmott in Toronto
Star Weekly. See him once and you
will always remember the man. Look
into that large piercing, black eye,
and you will tell half you know. Listen to the kindly words of advice, bc
touched with that unfailing courtesy,
feel that broad sympathy, and you
will realhe why men speak so well ol
him. These characteristics reveal tha
inherent nature of the man which
prompted a few years ago the beneficial gift of an X-ray outfit to St.

was the same generosity that installed

handling ol oil would permit, tbe Petrolea plant was a model of its kind.
A practical form of workmen's compensation was maintained, names ot

the payroll for years. In cases where
the bread winner ot the family died,
the pay envelopes went regularly to
the widow until the children became
