Wiles of Slave Traders Nullified By
Watchfulness of British Agents
Late one afternoon a large- canoe
from up-rive:* came slowly alongside
and made fast. In It were a man, a
woman, a lad, and a small child.
The man and the laa were working
the canoe, and as they enme up, the
man shouted some order lo thc lad at
the stern. He repeated It mure than
once, and the lad at each repetition,
started some new aet. It struck ni,.
as curious thut the lad failed to understand what wan said to htm.
I recognized thc language ln which
tiie man spoke ns being Ntipe, ami that
ihe woaiai! was ills wife, the mother of
the lai! and of the wee girl.
As neither he nor Ills wife could
make nny sort of conversation with
either of the children, (bough thes-
talked freely one lo Ihe other, it waa
reasonably clear that ths claim to he
their parents vas to lac accepted in
the Pickwickian sense only.
My own Interpreter, a worthy fellow with command of Beyeu languages,
could do nothing with them. Amateur
Interpreters, speaking all manner of
curious dialects, tried, without success, lo interest the "plkhlns."
Ultimately, a woman was fouii'1 In

Norway's Amazing Army
One of the most fascinating military
sights In the world Is to watch
Norwegian Infantry, mounted on skis
travelling and manoeuvring. Even
with rifle and full mai'cnlngklt on his
hack, a Norwegian soldier, when
equipped with his snowshoes, can travel at thirty miles an hour on a
slight grade, nnd even on level ground
he can cover from fifteen to twenty
miles an hour. The skis used by the
Norwegian soldier consist of uat pieces
of wood 8 feet lo 12 feet long, and *>&
Inches to 6 Inches wide. Thc Norwegian Infantryman Is trained from cium-
hood in the used ot skis, and his skill
Is such that lie can guide ln nnd out
of trees without a crackle to betray
his whereabouts.
When innrching orders aro sounded
the leader swings out nnd keeps up a
hot pace. Once ln sight of a supposed
enemy a pile of snow is quickly scooped up, and ensconced behind'this simple but effective protection the ski-
man can take pot-shots at the foe.
During some recent manoeuvres, in
which 10,000 Infantrymen participated,
the value of skis as an adjunct in warfare was clearly demonstrated. Over
roads piled so high with snow that
cavalry would have been unable to
make any progress whatever, the Infantry, mouuteiTon skis, covered from
twenty to thirty miles an hour without
mishap of any kind. Of course, it
would be' practically impossible in
most Instances for the artillery, with
their lieavy guns, to follow the infantry over the snowclad roads and pass-
' es, but for skirmishing and scouting
ski-running soldiers are extremely val-

The impression that ivy is harmful
to walls of stone or brick has been
removed by tlie testimony of a large

These trained observers agree that

walls damp. They maintain, In fact,
that the clinging tendrils of the
plant extract and absorb nny existing
moisture, nnd that the thick leaves

Rtal Meaning of "At Half Mast"
Perhaps you have noticed that
whenever a prominent pei'Eon dies, especially If he Is connected wth the
government, the flags on public buildings are hoisted only part of thc way
up. This Is called half mast. Did
you ever stop to think what connection there could bc between a flag tha*
was not properly hoisted and the
death of a great man?
Ever sinee Die time flags were used In
war lt has been the custom to have the
flag of the superior or conquering nation abovo that of tin inferior or vanquished. When an army found itself
hopelessly beaten lt hauled its flag
dowu far enougn for the flag of the
victors to be placed -above It on thc
same pole. This was u token not only
of submission, but of respect.
In those days when a famous soldier died flags were lowered out of
respect to his memory. The custom
long ago passed from purely military
usage to public life of all kinds, the
flag flying at half mast being a sign
that the dead man waB worthy of universal respect. The space left above
it Is for the flag of tbe great conqueror
of all, the Angel of Death.—New York
Interesting  Discovery of  Stone  And
Flint Relics Tells of Saskatchewan's Early Days.
W. E. II. Stokes, of the Provincial
Civil Service, recently spent a vacation at Whltewood, where he secured
some interesting relics, which have
been presented by their finders
through him to the museum at the
parliament buildings.
Enillc Renou.lt, who lives a few
miles south of Whltewood presents
some stone implements, presumably
of great antiquity. They consist of a
stone axe, hammer, what is supposed
to hare been a hide scraper, several
Hint arrow heads, etc.
Apparently, with the exception of
the arrowheads, they are made of
portions of the prairie boulder stone.
They aro very Interesting ns showing
the primitive nature of the weapons
and ImjjleinentB of aboriginal humanity. Another find consists of a rusty
old six shooter, of a very early pattern, and which is supposed to be,
by some, one of the old police guns,
such as were carried by Colonel
French's men when he crossed tho
plains in the seventies, and look possession of the Blackfeet country. The
Btock Is gone, but the gun, although
badly rusted, Ib otherwise fairly well
preserved. It was found in a bluff by
Mr. Huchun, of the merchants Bank,

Mr. Stokes for lhe museum. The
stone Implements are being photographed by Mr. Grenfell, and it is
said lo be the intention of Librarian

Women are Themselves    to    Blame
for Much of The'lr Suffering.
Women are weak, yet under a BtniU.
they will try lo bide pain and suffering that any man could not bear
patiently. If women would only re-1
member that their frequent failures!
of health arise from feeble or Impure j
blood their lives would be smoother!
and they would longer retain their
natural charm.
When the blood falls then begin
those dragging backaches and bead-
aches', unrefresiling sleep that causes
dark lines under the eyes; dizziness;
fits of depression: palpitation or
rapid fluttering of tbe heart; hot
flaBhcB and Indigestion. Then the
cheeks grow pale, Ihe eyes dull and
the complexion blemished.
Women should know thut much of
this suffering Is needless arid can be
promptly remedied. Purify and en-;

suffering will ranUh. Thousands of
women know that. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills have brightened their lives by
making the new, good blood of health,
and so toning up all the vital organs
Into healthy, vigorous action. Here
is an instance from among many.
Miss Cora A. Cornell, St. Catharines,
Ont., BayB: "Ever since the ago of
fourteen 1 have suffered terribly with
pains in my back, and severe headaches. I was also much troubled
with indigestion and hs'l to be extremely careful as to my diet, and
sometimes did not feel like eating
at all. Some two years ago the headaches became so bad that I had lo
give up my position, which was clerking In a store, where, of course, I was
constantly on my feet. I took a position in an office, where I could be
seated most ot the time, but even
then I suffered terribly most of the
time. As the medicine I had been
taking did not help mc I finally decided to try Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills.
I got a supply, and soon felt they
were helping me and I continued taking the pills for several monthB until
I felt perfectly well. Although my
doctor advised me not to go back to
my old position, I decided to do so,
and have not felt any ill effect. I
never have backache now, seldom a
headache, and all traceB of the indigestion have disappeared. I cannot
speak too highly of Dr. WllllaniB' Pink
Pills and I hope this letter will help,
someone who suffer.8 as I used to."

Canadian Government Annuities System Haa Not Been Abolished, x
The Superintendent of Annuities
haB received tho following enquiry
from an anxious correspondent who,
probably, had read the announcement
that the agency staff ot the Branch
had bdbn discontinued.
"I wish to ask, Is lt a tact that the
Annuities System has been abolished? If so, I am terribly disappointed,
as I have intended for some time to
buy an Annuity next summer paying
tho full price. I never thought that
the Act could be abolished, and have
been using the money ln other ways
until I wa* of age to receive the first
payment I and many others have
thought that the Annuities was a fine
provision tor poor people. Oan I still
buy a Government Annuity? and If
not. Is there anything that will take
Its place that can be bought? I do
hope that It Is not true that the Annuities has been abolished, as It gave
mo the Only Hope for my old age."
Wc are glad to say that the Annuities System has not been abolished. In transferring the Branch to the
Poet Oflice Department under the administration of the Postmaster General it Is believed that a wider publicity will be glveu to the System, and
that both old and young will moro
readily learn of the opportunity Parliament haB afforded them of making
provision for old age, the Postmasters
now becoming active, while formerly
they were only passive, agents ot the
Branch, The benefits will, of course,
be more apparent where payments
are begun at an early age, the accumulation period being longer,, and the
marvellous earning power of compound interest at 4 per cent, being
more strikingly demonstrated; and
there is always the danger if payment
is deferred to a late age that unfortunate Investments or expenditures
may bo made, and the necessary amount be not then available. There iB
no time like the present.
Full information in regard to the
various plans on which Annuities may
be purchased may be obtained at the
Post Office or, on application to the
Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa,
to whom letters on Annuities business go free ot postage.

Are Dreaded By Mothers Who Fear
For the Safety of Their Children.
What a weight of responsibility
rests on the mother of the family during the winter season!
In every cough and cold she recognizes the voice of Croup, Bronchitis,
Consumption or other deadly throat
anil lung complications.
Few people, even among those who
are convenient to doctors, can afford
the luxury of tbe physician ror every
cough or cold, even though they realize the seriousness ot neglecting
such ailments.
For all such Dr. Chase has provided a prompt means of cure known
as Dr. Chase's Syrup of Unseed and
One reason why mothers prize this
treatment above all others is because
of its sultabllltly for children. It is
sweet and pleasant to the taste, and
children like to take it. By its sooth-
ing, healing action it is wonderfully
prompt in curing Croup, Bronchitis
and Whooping Cough, and can be used by children with perfect safety so
long as directions are followed.
Thousands of families in Canada
keep Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed
aud Turpentine ln tho house at all
times for use in cases of emergency.
This is the only way to be sure of
protecting the bronchial tubes and

crops in the young orchard,- because
they all require good cultivation and
generally tempa the manager to liberal
. In fruit district* where canning
factories are being built,-such crops as
tomatoes, corn, and beans- may be
grown, as it is often difficult for the
factories to get a sufficient anpply of
these crops.
When clovers or vetches are grown
it ia well to leave a good wide strip
on each side of. the trees for cultiva
tion, especially where irrigation is not
available, so that the trees will nnt
suffer for lack of moisture. One crop
cau be taken off, and the'second crop
allowed to grow to plow undar next
spring, -This supplies nitrogen and
adds humus to the soil. Small fruit*
are often grown as inter-crops, and
sometime! with verr good results.
. Bush fruits should never be planted
within nine feet from the row of trees,
and the ground needs extra good cultivation. There is always a danger
of leaving bu.h fruits too long in the
orchard. In irrigated sections straw-
lierries are sometimes grown with
good results. There is not the danger
of ovorwatering this orop tbat there is
in the caae of the bush fruits, aa the
strawberry season is over quite early.
Young orchards should never be
left io sod. Sod lands are not only
drier than cultivated ground, but they
are aavorite breeding places of insects.
M ice often harbour in sod lands, and
tSiiy often do considerable damage to
young tree,.
There are a few cases where sod
may be grown in old orchards, but it
is the exception ratber than the rule.
In such a case as a very steep hillside
where there is plenty of moisture
available it might be an advantage to
leave the orchard in sud. However,
nothing should be taken off the
ground. The gran* should be cut and
left on the ground.
We are often aaked if it pays to
grow inter-crops in the bearing orch
ard. There is no doubt but that it
does not pay. Une can not expect to
get two crops of produce from the
same ground. The roots of the bearing trees require all the ground for
the best'development of the tree and
fruit. The onlv crop that should be
grown in a bearing orchard is a cover
crop to plow under.
The writer does not advocate cropping the young orchard in all cases.
Where a grower has sufficient capital
to oarrv him over until tha fruit trees
are bearing it may be better not to
take anything off the ground. He has
a much better chance to enrich the
ground by plowing under leguminous
crops, such as clover, etc., when the
trees are young than when they are
la.'ge and bearing. It is sometimes
hard to getagood catch when tree* are
large and hhade the ground. If one
is in such a position he should be able
to have the ground in a better cnndi
tion when the trees are old enough to
bear fruit than the man who is obliged
to grow intercrops. However, we are
not all able to do this and we must be
governed largely by our circumstances
Taking"the situation as a » riile it
would seem that the opportunities for
the small fruit grower are encouraging, not only to make* living, but an
income aa well, while his orchard is
coming into bearing age. Mnny men
are making extre Urge profits from the
inter crops, but some are doing it at
the expense of the orchard, However this need not be   if   extra  good

a healthy head of hair, because baldness is too generally accepted as an
indication of age. Many large corporations have established an age limit,
and refuse to take men over 35 years
of age as new employees.
Probably 65 per cent, of bald-
headed people may regain a good head
of healthy hair if they'will follow our
advice and accept our offer. We have
a remedy that we positively guarantee
to grow hair on any head unlets the
roots of the hair are entirely dead,
their follicles closed, and the scalp
has become glazed and shiny. We
want people to try this remedy at our
risk, with the distinct understanding
that unless it does exactly what we
claim it will, and gives satisfaction in
every respect, we shall make no charge
for the   remedy u»ed during the trial.
We know exactly what we are talking about, and with this, offer back of
our statemeuts, no one should scoff,
doubt uur word, or hesitate to put Our
remedy to an actual test.
We want every one in Grand Forks
who is suffering from any scalp or hail
trouble, dandruff, falling hair, or
'baldneSs totry our Hexall "93" Hair
Tonic. . We want them to use it
regularly—say until three buttles have
been used—and if it does not eradicate dandruff, cleanse and refresh the
scalp, tighten the hair in its roots, and
grow new hair, we will return every
cent paid us for the remedy for the
mere asking. There is no formality
expected, and we exact no obligation
from the user whatever.
We are established riglit here in
Grand-Forks, and make this offer
with a full understanding that our
business success entirely depends upon

but this seaeon they have secured what is beyond any question of doubt
tbe best picture ever offered newspaper render*. It is entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation. e
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, wimieri<
of many prizes at dog snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
has been stolen, and after many days' absence tic escapes one night from
his captor and returns home on n snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, tn the door nnd
she throwB hei* arms nround her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to Ihe door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted, to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his bend against her breast with a little
whine, whicli in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—Ihe two glad-eyed children—on eager boy with bair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate uritis around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win u favored place
on.the walls of any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur .1. Klsley, famous for

A Ticket War Between the Busses and

Tbe company tbat runs the omnibuses lu Paris baa recently put Into
effect a system of giving tickets to
passengers wben tbey pay their fares.
And this has caused a howl from the
traveling public. It is not tbat the
public objects to the tickets. Wbat lt
Is annoyed about ia the too frequent
visits of inspectors demanding to see
the tickets. Some persons are making
life a burden to tbe inspectors, delaying the buses and making all Paris
laugb. One of tbem saves every ticket he gets, and as he goes about tbe
city constantly be bas a pocket foil ot
tbem. Every time ho gets on a bus,
pays his fare and. receives a ticket be
simply adds It to bis collection, When
the Inspector enters and cries "Tickets!" the man draws forth his collection and holds It out to tbe Inspector.
A dialogue something like this follows: "AVhat'a all this?" "Tickets."
"What for?" "I don't know." "Then
why do you band them to ine?" "Because you nsked for them." "I didn't
ask for all these. I want your ticket
for tbls bus." "You have it"
"Where?" "In that bunch." "But I
don't want this bunch. 1 want your
ticket." "Tben pick It out." "Tbat is
not my business." "Nor Is It mine."
"Why do you keep all these tickets?"
"Because lt says on them, 'On no account lose this ticket or throw it
away.'" "But lt Is of no use after lt
bos once beeu used." "I know nothing
about tbat. I am simply doing what
your company tells me." "Well, I
haven't time to argue with you. Are
you going to band me your ticket?"
"I have already done so." The colloquy generally ends in the inspector
leaving the bus In a bad temper.—London Globe.

Aviator Cord and Wire.
Tbo arrival of the aeroplane has given ua n new industry, or rather a modification of an old one-namely, tbat
of manufacturing aviator cord and
aviator wire. The lloehllngs bave devised a special kind of wire aviator
cord to be used fur stays on aeroplanes. The cord consists of a number of lino wires of great strength
stranded together. The strength of
tbe different sizes runs approximately
from 2,000 to 2,300 pounds. For steering gear a moro flexible cord Is provided, composed of six strands of seven wires each, with a center of cither
cotton or wire. Thc aviator wire differs from aviator cord In that it consists of a single wire instead of a number of wires twisted together. Tbe
wire Is mado ln twelve sizes, with a

they are not doing very well. Th*
universal practice Is to hangings follow the cattle, and the amount of pork

course this varies widely. It varies
because of tbe kind of corn used, becauso of tbe season and tb* number of
