PRICE 5 CENTS
Co-operative   Organization
Has Benefited Eastern
Fruitgrowers
OH, DEAR! OH, DEAR!
In view of the low prices for farm
products in thia province tbis fall,
the following article on cooperation
in the east should be of interest to
the readers of The Sun:
For tbe last tbree years the Jordan Co-operative Co., Ltd., has annually laved to its members between
2 and 3 cents on every backet in 60
carloads of grapes. Tbis is not men
guesswork, but on tbe actual comparative prices obtained by two
neighbors, one a member of the
company and the other a non member, on farms not 300 yards apart.
Of couree, it meant another member forthe co-operative organization
as soon as tbe disparity was discovered. Two years ago tbe organize
tion was obtaining 14 cents a basket
for its grapes, wbile a non-member
depending on commission houses got
only 9 cents.
,Vhe Jordan Co operative company
organised tbree years ago, bas a
membership of over 60 membejs,
drawn from the fruit growers of the
vicinity of Jordan station. Tbe
company is capitalised «t liO.OoO,
and in order to enjoy the advan
tages of membership a shipper is required to hold one share of stock of
. par value of f 50. Only one-fifth of
the subscribed capital is paid up, the
balance being subject to call, with
ibe result not only tbat the members have something at stake, but
tbat tbe organization is able to secure loans at ils bank for tbe purchase of supplies.
Prior to organization of tbe cooperative company, growers were
' obliged to sell either through commission houses or to "dealers" or
fruit "brokers," at tbe station. "We
get between 2 and 3 cents more a
basket for grapes tban under tbe
former method of selling to a dealer
at tbe station, and sometimes & or
6 cents a basket in advance of the
commission house price. I can
prove that tbis is absolutely the
case," declares Mr. Camby Wisnier,
vice-president of tbe organization
and treasurer of Lincoln county.
Tbe coinpany is organized along
similar  lines  to  tbose of tbe St.
E E. Gibson and James McArdle
returned to the city from Christina
lake laat Friday in Mr. Gibson's
automobile. Wben a short distance
tbis side qf Gilpin tbe gentlemen
espied a big buck deer leisurely trotting in the middle of the road a
quarter nf a mile ahead of the car.
Mr. Gibson desired a closer inspection of the animal, and turned On
all tbe reserve power in bis machine. In a few seconds the car
was within two or three feet of the
deer. Tben 'be deer got a whiff of
the gasoline odor, and he realized
that it was time to quicken his pace.
Ahead for. twa miles was a straight
and smooth road, witb no break in
tbe high barb-wire fence that encloses
the" highway.' The dear evidently
knew that it would be a race for life,
and the speed be developed has never
been equalled on a race track. He
kept this up for two miles; and all
this time the car was a few feet behind him. It was an even race—
tbs deer was unable to gain on the
car, and the car could not run down
the animal. At the end of tbe two
miles tbere was a break in the
fence, and the deer bid adios to bis
pursuers, and vanished in the darkness.
Mr. Gibson describes the race as
lbe most exciting event in his life,
not even barring the last bull fight
he witnessed in Mexico. There was
also a toucb of beauty to the scene.
Tbe lights from the car shining on
either side of tbe agile animal made
a picture that an artist would have
travelled over oceans and continents to nave seen. And as for danger. Had the deer stumbled and
fallen, there would bave been an
overturned automobile and probably
two motorists seriously injured.
Had there been any spectators to
tbe race, they would have been puzzled whethar the deer and tbe streak
of light passing tbe county was
really Roosevelt's bull moose seeking safety in the mountain fastnesses
or that Santa Claus had become confused in his dates.
Twenty-seven Oars of Summer Varieties Have Been
Marketed

else tbe animal would have bad

Twenty-seven cars of fruit have
been shipped from the Grand Forks
Fruit Growers association's packing
house at Carson tbis season. This
is an excellent start. The shipments so far bave consisted of summer and fall, varieties of fruit. As
none of.Uie winter apples have yet
been picked, the total shipments
for tbe year sbould run close to 160
carloads.

Copper is miuiug lower than' tbe
average grade of ore from its Mother
Lode mine. Its system of mining
calls for tbe breaking down of more
tban 200,000 tons of ore at a time.
A recent blast of tbis character dislodged considerable low grade material, which became mixed with
lbe ore. Tbis has cut into tbe net
earnings to some extent. Normally
lbe company sbould be earning
about 20 per cent on tbe selling
price of its stock and it is paying 12
per cent. It bas uuder option a
property that appears to contain a
very large and valuable ore deposit
which is now being explored. A de-
cirion whether or not to purchase
it will be reached in December or
sooner, and it may bave an important bearing on the market price of
the stock. Tbe company's management is capable aud progressive. Its
operations are being conducted as a
business. We believe that tbe company has a future and tbat its stock
is good to buy and bold.
George L Walker says that on the
basis of wbat tbe Granby did during its operating period last year, it
may be figured tbat tbe ore now
demonstrated in Pboenix will yield
116,500,000 pounds of copper, at a
profit of $*., 100,COO, witb the metal
at its present price.
Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of
agricultural, arrived in tbe city last
Tuesday from the coast and the
Okanagan country. He is visiting
at tbe home of Mr. and Mrs. H. C.
Kerman during his stay here, and
will remain in the city until some
time next week. He is accompanied
by hiBfprivate secretary, Wm. Ide.
of Ottawa,
Tbe Sun has not yet had an opportunity to iuterview the minister.
We intend to do so before he departs from ths city, at the same time
seizing upon this occasion as an opportune moment for thanking him
for tbe delightful weather and
bountiful crops with which this district has been blessed under the
federal Conservative rule. It will
also be our painful duty to enquire
why prices for fruit and farm products bave fallen instead risen under
a restricted market, and wby the
American fruit grower still controls
the northwestern fruit market. We
shall also quizz bim regarding the
government's naval policy. But on
this subject we do not expect much
enlightenment, "because even Premier Borden does not appear to be
entirely satisfied tbat be has a naval
policy. And, furthermore, we know
Mr. Burrell to be a peace-loving
man. When be was editor of our
local contemporary we attempted to
frame up a fight him, but be refused to be caught in our net. We
have since discovered tbat fools rush
in wbere angels fear to tread.
The August net profits of tbe
British Columbia Mining company
were $36,000, or $10,000 less than
in July, owing to lower grade of
ore treated during tbat month. The
costs use said to be 9 cents a pound.
When the proper procesB is determined upon, the British Columbia Cupper company will build a
mill at Boundary Kails to treat the

Mr. Borden was banqueted in
Montreal in commemoration of the
defeat of reciprocity. Why should
not tbe barons of restriction banquet
Mr. Borden once a year? Or why
sbould tbey not gather round the

obligations for the part he took in
the fray, or visibly depleting thc

dealers alone were estimated to have
taken fifteen million or more out of
the western farmer last winter and
spring because the door to Minneapolis was shut against his grain.
That would pay for many banquets,

An Eye for Business
The late John R. Arbuckle, the coffee merchant, who left an estate ot
100 million dollars, often said that a
part of his success was due to his
knowledge of human nature.
In selling coffee, Mr. Arbuckle once
said to a New York coffee broker,
you should exercise the same keen
discretion which the druggist showed.
A woman, you know, a woman well
on In years, entered a druggist's and
said: r
Have vou any creams for restoring

Restoring, miss? You mean preserving, said the druggist heartily.

How She Voted

Lyman Abbott, sipping a glass of ice

story.
I had heard a lot, he said, about,
the wonderful success of woman suffrage in Australia; so, meeting an
Australian woman one day, I asked:
How did you vote, madam, at the
last election?
The Australian woman answered
with a simper:

IN A SEA-CAPTAINS CLUB
Where Matter Mariners Foregather
and Chat
The National Maritime Club, In
Fenchurch Street, is the meeting-place
of ship-masters ln London. The
members spend most of their lives on
the ocean, aud you may see ln the
club-rooms men who a few weeks ago,
perhaps, were weathering out a terrific hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico,
or were crawling down the dangerous
Formosa Channel, or steaming as hard
as they could go across the open Pacific or Atlantic.
The club was formed a couple of
years ago by a few ship-masters, but
it has now over six hundred men of
the sea on Its books. In no club
ln London could you meet so many
men who have had so many strange
and thrilling experiences.
From one ship-master, a newspaper
representative gleaned the fact that
he had once been silx days at. sea
with a fire in the hold of his ship, but
he had managed to keep the fire under, and reached Philadelphia safely. Another mariner mentioned ln
a casual manner, that the only little
experiences he could call to mind was
the picking up ln the Pacific of a
small boat with two men In lt. One
of the men was dead, the other barely alive; his tongue fearfully swollen
was sticking out of his mouth, and
his eyes had gone so far back in their
sockets that they were scarcely visible. He was the sole survivor from
an American ship that had foundered
in mid-Pacific during a hurricane.
Captain Wldgery, the secretary, and
one ot the original founders of the
club, has had -forty-five years' experience of the sea, and Is now retired.
Captain Wldgery, like his club-mates,
ls not much disposed to talk of his experiences, but he gave the representative, after much pressing, an account
of a hurricane he had once been ln
the Gulf of Mexico.
The wind was so bad that the ship
could make no headway at all against
lt and Captain Wldgery ordered the
engines to be stopped. There was
nothing to be done, said Captain Wldgery, but simply to weather the hurricane out as best we could. The
ship was blown over by the force of
Jhe wind until her decks were almost
perpendicular, and we lay like that
for twenty-four hours.
The water whipped up by the wind
completely enveloped the ship in a
driving cloud of spray, through which
we could not see a yard ahead. The
sea itself, you must understand, was
not heavy, for in these violent hurricanes so much water is blown off the
surface of the sea, that the waves are
comparatlvely'small.
Well, as I said, we lay tor twenty-
four hours more than half blown over,
and the trouble was we did not know
where we were going, for during the
hurricane, as we saw neither sun nor
stars, it was quite Impossible to take
a reckoning. We might have been
blown on to the coast and wrecked;
but as it was we weathered the hurricane out in safety, though we were
blown miles and miles out ot our
course. Every particle of paint on
the ship en the weather side was peeled off by the wind and water.
When the representative was at the
club, the telephone-bell rang frequently. At each ring the steward would
come Into the smoklngroom with a
message to say that Captain So-and-So
was required at the telephone. One
of these calls was a summons that
warned the master mariner who answered It that he would be wanted to
sail that evening for Hong-Kong.
What Could He Do?
Spare me a penny, sir, please?
Thc clergyman stopped and looked
round. He gave a start of surprise.
Instead of an old or middle-aged
waster, he saw a youth of nineteen
confronting him.
My lad, he exclaimed, I'm ashamed
of you! A strong, healthy chap like
you ought to be at work Instead of
begging.     How came you to do lt?
Well, sir, replied the youth, It's like
this: Twelve months ago I was 111,
and the doctor forbade mo to do any
work until he told me. Just after
that he died.     So what can I do?
Tro clergyman Is still puzzling over
tbe problem.

said the priest tp one of his partshlon
ers.
I know that, yer Rlverence. Me
brother tried It, and now he's doing
time for bigamy.

to leave me, Mary. But what's your

To Have and to Hold
Once upon a time he had been an
officer In a crack regiment, but he had
fallen on evil daya, and in the end
was compelled by force of circumstances to resign Us commission and
to enlist in another regiment as a
humble private.
He found it Impossible, however, totally to forget his position, and on one
occasion, being requested by a sergeant to hold his horse—a duty that
did not *eally devolve upon him—he
remarked:
Er—you forget—er—sergeant,   that
once I held his Majesty's commission.
-The sergeant looked at   htm,   not
without respect by any means, and
then remarked:
Well, youngster, I'm sorry, but you
will now have to hold one of his
Majesty's horses!
Relieves Asthma at Little Expenae.
Thousands of dollars have been
vainly spent upon remedies for asthma and seldom, If ever, with any relief. Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Asthma
Remedy, despite Its assurance of benefit, costs so' little that it ls within
Ihe reach of all. It is the national
remedy for asthma, far removed from
the class of doubtful and experimental preparations. Your dealer can
supply it.
Seizing tha Opportunity
Whilst out for a walk with her little niece, auntie had the misfortune
to rip the lace on her skirt as she
crossed a stile.
Ethel was quite willing and eager
the lace now, so would you mind
stooping down and carefully tearing
off the piece that is hanging loose?
Ethel was quite wllllnlg and eager
to please, and duly commenced her
task. For several minutes there was
a sound of tearing, really much more
tearing than was necessary to remove
a small length of broken lace.
Haven't you finished yet? asked
auntie eventually.
Yes, replied the little girl, rising
wearily. I was taking lt all off. I
wanted enough for my dolly's skirt
while I was about it, and the little
bit you tore wasn't enough.

' Cowt
.  Darling Camt
The summer day was nearly over,
and the last of the crowd bad gone.
The pier am" sands were deserted
save for a young lady and man on
the latter, and a small group on the
former. Along the road narallel
with the promenade came a red-faced
man, corpulent withal.
He gave a hasty look-over the sands
and then bellowed:
Darling!
The folk on the pier gave a short
laugh, while the lady looked up froi <
her hook, but budged not an Inch.
Darling! roared ibg man ln an even
louder voice. But there was no
movement on the sands. The pier
people could scarcely contain their*
selves for amusement.
The stout man lost all patience, and
picking up a stone threw lt, to the
accompaniment of protest from the
pierltes, in the direction of the lady.
The stone struck the man, who looked round to see what was the matter.
Tom Darling, yelled the man, for
the last time, are you coming?
Darling got to his feet, and the Jokers on the pier then melted away to
think of other things.

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills arc tho best
medicine known to medical science.
They actually make new pure blood,
which brings with lt a healthy appetite and new strength and vitality.
Mrs. George Roy, Clair, Sask., Bays:
"I have tested the value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills time and again
when a poor condition of the blood
might havo led to more serious trouble. I ant a woman of forty and as
occasion required I have used the
Pills oft and on since girlhood. I
have proved their value In the ail
ments that afflict my sex, and I have
never known them to fall. I also
gave them to my son for nerve trouble which we thought would result
In St. Vitus dance, but the use of the
Pills prevented this and made him
well and strong. I do not know
any better investmont than to keep
half a dozen boxes of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills In the house, as they wilt

More About
The Loading Platform
The preasnt gc.ipr_.tlon of Western farmers will never know tht
difficulties and vxati.ns experienced by their predecessors la the
earlier years when no one could get a carload of grain shipped in
bulk except ty io tiling lt through au elevator. The ayatem forced
the majority of farmers to sell their grain to the elevator owners
at arbitrary prlcts, and oft times to submit to heavy dockage and
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now however
the distribution o! -ars as fixed by the Grain Act, and the uae of the
loading platform, provide facilities which enable the farmer to secure
satisfactory treai._-.tnt in the disposal of his grain, and the highest
market prices at time of tale, livery farmer therefore, should more
and more eudeavnr to use the loading piriform In shipping his grain
to the terminal elevators. It Is the safeguard ot the farmers' freedom In disposing of hit grain to the best advantage for himself. If
farmers retrain Irom using the loading platform freely, lt might result In its being done away with, becaure railway companies and
elevator owners are strongly opposed to li. •' It la easy to understand why .levator people desire the loallng platform abolished.
The railway eople on their part say lt delays the loading of cars
and helps to cause car shortage. This we know to be nonsense,
because frequently after cars are loaded whether with grain, coal
lumber or other merchandise, they are sldetracke.: for days and even
weeks Instead ot being promptly moved forward to destination. It
is engine shortage aud shortage ot competent trait, men that mostly
causes grain llockades on railways and not lack of cars. Let every
farmer therefore, d> all he can to use t e loading platform and become an Independent shipper. In subsequent advertisements we
will state In detail the savings and other advantages of direct loading into cars compared with loading through elevators.
We handle the farmers grain strictly ou commission, make liberal
advances on car bills of lading, supervise the grading at time cars
are Inspected, secure the highest price, at time of sale and make
prompt returns when sold. Write us for shipping Instructions and

A well-to-do Chicago real estate

for a pound of nails. The small
package was made up and the price,
a nickel, handed to the merchant,
when the customer aaked If the purchase could be aent to his house,
which was In a distant part of the
city. The merchant assented, and
calling an errand boy, handed him the
parcel, with the nickel he had just
received tor it, and aaid:—
Here, Johnny, take the car and take
this parcel out to Mr. Blank's house.
Wbat! said the customer, are you
going to give the boy the nickel to
take the parcel out?
Why, certainly, said the merchant.
I wouldn't think of asking him to

Elm Leads In Canadian Cooperage.-!
Although the elm still leads among |
the woods used tor alack cooperage,
spruce Is rapidly supplanting it. In
the total output ot barrels ln the Dominion last year, there were used, according to figures compiled by the
Forestry branch ot the Department of
the Interior, 80,016,000 pieces of elm,
ln staves headings and hoops, as
..gainst 37,704,000 pieces of spruce.
There wore, however, over 11,000,000
more spruce staves and 9,000,000 fewer elm staves reported for 1911 than
for 1910. In time, elm will probably
he usetl only for hoops, as it ls the
best wood for the purpose, the supply
Is fast diminishing, and other species
tan be used to advantage for staves
and headings. The ultimate substitute for elm will probably be birch
whioh is comparatively plentiful.
Slack cooperage Is ot vastly greater
Importance than tight cooperage ln
Canada. This ls because the majority of Canadian products are of a
rough and dry nature, such as lime,
potatoes, apples, dry flsb, flour, cereals, etc., and because Canadian
woods aro best suited to slack cooperage.    -^
White.oak, the only wood which
can be used for containers of alcoholic liquids, has been practically exhausted in Canadian woodlands. -In
1911 only 2,768,000 oak staves were
cut, while. 7,293,000 were imported.
A rough estimate on the part of the
Forestry Branch places the minimum
amount ot material used ln the manufacture of all classes of cooperage
as 62,353,190' board feet, made up as
follows: staves, 29,367,714 teet, heading, 24,466,606 feet, and hoops, 02,-

Change of Food Brought Succest and

An ambitious bnt delicate' girl, after
falling to go through school on account of nervousness and hysteria,
found ln Grape-Nuts the only thing
that seemed to build her up and. furnish her the peace ot health.
"From Infancy," she eays, "I have
nol been strong. Being ambitious
to learn at any cost I finally got to
the High School, but soon had to
abandon my studies on account ot
nervous prostration and hysteria.
"My food did not agree with me,
I grew thin and ^despondent.. I
could not enjoy the simplest social
affair for I suffered constantly from
nervousness In spite of all sorts of
medicines.
"This wretched condition continued
until I was twenty-flve, when I became Interested In the letters of
those who had cases like mine and
who were getting well by eating
Grape-Nuts.
"I had little faith but procured a
box and after the first dish I experienced a peculiar satisfied feeling that
I had never gained trom any ordinary
food. I slept and rested better that
night and in a few days began to
grow stronger.     \
"I had a new feeling of peace and
restfulnesa. In a few weeks, to my
great Joy, the headachees' and nervousness left me and life became
bright and hopeful. I resumed my
studies and later taught ten months
with ease—of course using Grape-
Nuts every day. It Is now four
years since I began to use Grape-

SORE BACK
KIDNEYS WERE BADLY DI8EASED
AND SHE DIDN'T KNOW IT
Wat Completely Cured by Lett Than
Thrae Boxtt of
DR. CHASE'S
KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS
Women are very often deceived
and mistaken In regard to kidney
disease. The pains in the back are
attributed to other derangements, and
kidney disease is allowed to run on
and on until beyond the reach of medical science.
There ls needless suffering, and
life itself is risked, because backache
Is not recognized as the most marked symptom ot kidney disease.
There is no treatment which so
quickly relieves and cures kidney
pains In the back as Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills. As proot of
this read MrB. Patterson's letter:—
Mrs. Richard Patterson, Haldt-
mand, Gasps Co., Que., writes: "I
will gladly say that I was cured of
kidney trouble by using Dr, Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills. When I began
using this medicine I was crippled
with sore back and did not know
what waa tbe trouble. In looking
over Dr. Chase's Almanac 1 saw
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills advertised and (Melded to try them.
"I had not used two boxes before
my back was all right, and before I
had completed the third box was en'
tirely cured, There has been no
return ot the old kidney trouble, and
I therefore believe the cure to be
permanent."

Polly havo a bath! Polly have a
bath. The reiterated cry came from
a large green parrot, who stood In a
tin baBl.i full of water ecstatically
flapping his scarlet-flecked wings.
Few people who keep bird pets
know how to prevent them from languishing during the summer heat. Little do they Imagine that big and small
birds alike are simply longing with
all their tiny hearts for a cold bath.
Their owners', It is true, supply their
smaH prisons with water In a little
glass vase; but theae are for drinking purposes—not for the luxury of a
restoring and indiscriminate splash.
Bvery well-behaved bird knows retribution, swift aad sure, follows a mark
on the carpet.
Now let those who really love their
fcatherAl friends provide little swimming baths for the birdies. They
must, ot course, vary according to the
bird's Blze. Whereas a pudding-basin would accommodate a canary, a
parrot would require something more
commodious.
Then place the bird ln his cage
where he can gambol unmolested. In
the back yard, on the lawn, or on
the scullery floor are equally good positions. Anyone who knows anything of birds knows that, although
inarticulate, they appreciate comfort.

Paragraphs
FRIDAY.
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1912
Puess dispatches tell us
that this fine weather is worth
10,000,000 aaily, to the farmers ofthe north west. It may
be worth that sum, but with
our present contracted markets, the grain dealers and the
railway corporations will re^
ceive the greater portion of it.
There is something radically wrong with industrial
conditions when the price of
the farmer's products barely
remunerates him for his labor, and the cost of living
keeps on climbing higher.
In an article on tlie recent
fair in the last issue of our lo
cal contemporary, the editor
takes occasion to throw a few
remarks in the direction of
this office. As the fair is now
ancient history, it is enough
to say that the city had many
good fairs, with large gatherings of people from outside
districts, long before the editor of the Gazette inflicted
his narrow views and grasp-
What Gen. Sherman described as hell has broken out
between Turkey and the
Balkan states. Wealth and
property that it has-taken
centuries to accumulate will
now destroyed in a few
months, and thousands of human beings will be killed,
maimed or crippled for life.
This is called civilization. It
is licensed murder.
The term of the present
council is drawing to a close
and a mild form of moral reform has attacked the police
commissioners.

who retires on account of ill health.
Tbe other officers were reelected.
The stockholders voted to reduce
the number of directors from fifteen

of tbe officers will be determined by
the board, instead of tbe shareholders, as formerly. Thirteen members
of the old directorate were re-elected.
The retiring members are A. L.
White and Arthur James.
Jay P. Graves, vice-president,who

company secured its fuel supply. He
stated tbat conditions at Phoeni*
were as good as heretofore, an<) tbat
tbe company had put into Sight more
ore than it had expected during tbe
year. Regarding the Hidden Creek
properties, he said that five million
tons of ore bad heen developed to

pounds of copper to tbe ton of rock.
Tbis about twice the recovery that

Quinn-Curran
The New Westminster Columbian
of rhe 3rd inst says:
A very pretty wedding was solemnized at the home of Mr and Mrs
P. S. Quinn, 512 Fourth street, at 8
o'clock lust Tuesday evening, when
tbeir eldest daughter, Edna, was
united in marriage to Ralph Quinn,
of Vancouver. The house was beau
tifully ^.decorated with autumn
leaves, their profusion of color mak
ing a very pretty background for tbe
ight evening frocks.
The britie looked charming in her
white gown of anchor's satin trim
med with seed pearls, her pearl Ju
lie* cap adding tbe last touch of bri
liul dignity, while the bridesmaid
*a8 scarcely less attractive in bei
aiainty gown of sbell pink cascade
silk. The bride carried a shower
bouquet of white roses and lily of
valley, and the bridesmaid a sheaf
or pale pink carnations. Tbe little
flower girl, Jean Gilker, cousin of
the bride, was dainty in ber little
white frock, wbile the bride'
mother, close at hand, wore soft
grey poplin of becoming tones.
After the ceremony, which was
performed by Dr. Perry, of Vancou
ver, and tbe hearty congratulations
showered Upon the young couple, a
dainty lunch was served to the many
guests assembled.
.Lunch over, the young couple de
parted amid showers of good wishes
. sod confetti to catch the 11 o'clock
boat for Victoria. The bride's trav
eling dress Was shot blue broadcloth, and her hat of pretty light
tan. At Victoria and ai Seattle and
Portland tbey will spend a short
honeymoon, and will then take up
residence in Grand Forks.
Irishisms
An Irish.peasant was once nsked
whether he knew what an Irish
"bnll" was. "To be shure I do," he
replied. "If you was drivin' along a
high road and you saw three cows
lyin'  down   in a field and wan ov
thim's standing up—that wan is an
Irish bull!" j
When Sir Richard Steele, whoi
was born in Ireland, was asked by I
an English friend how it wbb that j
his countrymen were so addicted to
themakingof "bulls," he replied:
"It must be something in the atmosphere of the countiy. Probably
if an Englishman were born iu Ireland he would do the same!"
A gentleman,."peaking of a friend's
wife, regretted tbat she bad no children. "Ah," said an Irish doctor
who was in the company, "to have
no children is a great misfortune,
but I have noticed that it is beredi
tary in some families!"
At a Limerick police court a man
wbo was known to the police as an
habitual drunkard was brought up
on the old charge. "Ten shillings or
a fortnight," said the magistrate
•'Sure, yer honor, I've two shillings
in tbe world!" pleaded the man in
the dock. "Well, sir," said tiie
magistrate, "you must go tq__jji.il. h
you hadn't got drunk with yiitii
money you'd be able to pay tin
fine!" --
An Irjsh landlord,passing tliruiigli
a village, said to the loeal butcher,
'Well, Jim, how's trade?" "Had,
yer honor," said Jim. "The peopl>
nre so few and so poor tbat it's hard
pushed I im to dispose of a caroast-
before il gels tainted." "Why tin1
kill half a cow at a time?" sug
gested the squire.
In a description of an abnormal
shower of rain which appeared ii
an Irish newspaper tbe following
rare specimen occurred: "The heavi
drops of rain varied in sine from a
shilling to eighteenpence "
An Irish clergyman at the end ol
a sermon on grace, said: "Ah, tin
brethren, if there remains one spark
of grace, water it, water it!" He had
been in the habit of comparing
grace to a tender plant, and had got
his illustrations mixed.

Newspaper Law
1 A postmaster is required to give
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when a subscriber dues nnt take his paper nut nf
the postoffice, anil state the reason for
its not being taken. Any neglect to
tlo so makes the postmaster responsible to the publisher for payments
2. If any per-nn orders his papei
discontinued he must pay all arrear

to send it ..until payments nro marte
nnd culled lhe whole amount whethei
the paper is taken from the olliee or
not. There can be no legal diseon
tinuanee until payment is made.
al. Any persam who takes a paper
iiut nf the postofliee, whether directed'
to his name or not, or whether be has
"subscribed or not, is responsible for
the pay
4. If a subscriber orders his paper
.tupped and the publisher continues tn
lend it, lbe subscriber is bound to
■ any fur it if he takes it out of the
post office. This proceeds upon the
ground that a man must pay for what
he uses.
5 Thc courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers or periodicals from tbe post office or removing,
leaving them uncalled for, is prima
facie evidence of intentional fraud.

Murphy Agreed
For three solid hours the captain
had been lecturing his men on
duties ot a soldier, aud he thought
it was time to see-how much they had
understood of his discourse.
Casting Ills eyes round the room,
he fixed on Private Murphy aB his
lirst victim.
Why should a man fight for his
country?
Private Murphy scratched his head
for a moment, and then a smile of
enlightment crossed his face.
Sure, captain, he said pleasantly,
you're quite right.     Why should he?
MOTHERHOOD

Advice to Expectant Mothers
Quarter and the Sick
Now, said the decorator to his
brand-new apprentice, you have finished your work for the week. But
tf you'll ttay and mind the shop for
a minute, whilst I go out, I'll give you
an extra quarter. Mind you don't
forget any messages or orders and be
Bure you clearly understand them.
The apprentice declared that he
clearly understood his master.
Twenty minutes later the master
came back, and demanded if anybody
had come In.
Yes, assented the apprentice. Nobody's been in except somebody as
wanted somebody to go somewhere'
sometime to do something. But I
told him In no time as on Saturday
afternoons there warn't not nobody
nowhere to do nothing nohow. He
said in that case he refused your acceptance of the Job he's not giving
you, 'cause he makes nothing of anyone who does anything anyhow, and
never gets nothing done when nevef
expected.
The apprentice got the quarter—;'
and was fired. .
Education's Triumph
Eddlcation, remarked Weary Willie
to his brother tramp, as they lay by
the side of a dusty hedge—eddlcation
Is rot. And he emphasized his remarks by uprooting an inoffensive
daisy.
I—I ain't so sure, replied tho other.
I 'ave a hldea that we couldn't get
hon without It.
Bah! was the the terse reply. 1
never got nothing hout of goln' to
school.
Dare say you didn't, answered W.
W. No. 2. But perhaps you didn't
go about it hin UV. right spirit?
Well, what did you get hout of it?
What did I get? Two coats, four-
hats, a stick, and eight umbrellas.
Eddlcation no good?     Rot!
An Oil That ls Famous.—Though
Canada was not the birthplace of
Dr, Thomas' Electric OU it ls the
home of the famous compound.
From here Its good name was spread
to Central and South America, the
West Indfes, Australia and New Zealand. That Is far afield enough to
test Its excellence, for In all these
countries it is on sale and in demand.
Cause and Effect
Travelling In the wild and wolly.
West, a gentleman entered a small
townstiip in order that he might make
the purchase of a watch and chain.
The shopkeeper was very pleased
to oblige, but as he wrapped up the
articles purchased he included with
them a fearBome-looklng revolver of
very respectable dimensions.
I say, observed the astonished traveller, what are you doing? I didn't
offer to buy a revolver.
The Watchmaker, puzzled in turn,
and thinking his customer must have
lost his sense and reason, replied:
But you have bought a gold watch.
If you are going to keep It in these
parts, you'll wtrSt the gun, too!
I bought a horse with a supposedly
Incurable ringbone for $30. Cured

The experience of Motherhood Is a trying one to most women and marks distinctly an epoch in thoir lives. Not one
woman in a hundred is prepared or understands how to properly care for herself. Of course nearly every woman
nowadays has medioal treatment at
such times, but many approach the
experience with an organism unfitted
for the trial of strength, and when It
Is over her system haa received a shock
from which it is hard to recover. Following right upon this comes the nervous strain of caring for the child, and
• distinct change in the mother results.
There is nothing more charming than
a happy and healthy mother of children,
and indeed child-birth under the right
conditions need be no hazard to health or
beauty. The unexplainablo thing is that,
with all the evidence of shattered nerves
and broken health resulting from an unprepared condition, and with ample tlmo
in which to prepare, women will persist
la going blindly to the trial
> Every woman at this time should rely
upon Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, s most valuable tonic and Invig-
orator of the female organism,

1 Tom Archer:
: A Man Wbo Was Too Proud: 1
to Accept a Favor
By ARNOLD DUTCHER
Tbere Sre a great many Inconsistences In life, aud one of the strangest ot
tbese Is the acceptance of money favors between trionds. A person will
scorn to accept f 10, $100 or even II,-
000 from a friend, ftr it may be a
brother, yet In a matter of a legacy
ba will rob a dead man's children not
yet out of tlie nursery.
I have sought for the csuss of tbls
human Idiosyncrasy The only con
elusion I bave been stale to reach ta
tbnt It Is due almost entirely to pride,
usually a mistaken pride, and as often
to sensitiveness. Indeed, It la tbe re
suit of both. The most abnormal case
of It that has ever come to my know!
edge was that of Tom Archer. Tom'
and I were chuins as schoolboys, and
at that time be appeared to be my su
lierlor in everything. He waa a better
scholar, better at games, more popular
both with noys and girls and stood
blgner ss un nil around fellow.     '
Tom and I went to college together,
but I didn't stay there very long.   M»

SUB,
books didn't plesse me, and I was not
strong enough to take part lo alb
Idles. I was caught lo a prank tbat
was nnt only silly, but reprehensible,
add was expelled. Wben I went
borne to my fnther ne said to me:
"I'm sorry for this, my boy, becanse
yon'll bare to take a back sest In the
Kjorld on account of It There's your
friend, Tom Archer. I wish for yonr
sake yon bad taken the stand be Is
occupying. Wbeojoo botb come to
the prime of life you will tnd blm
honored snd respected, while yon will
be passed over for a very ordinary
person. I'm not saying tbla to yoo aa
a punishment, bot as a matter of regret for us both."
1 hsve never forgotten a word ot
this prediction, wblcn sank upon me
like lead. My father secured a position tor me as a clerk tn a mercantile bouse, bot I wrote e poor band,
conld oot spell correctly and made mis.
takes. The bead ot the arm dis-
cbsrged me, but I begged him to let me
see wbat I could do outaide-that Is,
In working op trade. He consented
•nd I started In again.
Twenty yeara bare passed since
then. Tbe concern In wblcb I was employed hss grown enormously, snd I

Wished fo see, passed through the
ipc-nlng in the rail, and, walking
straight up to my desk, put out bis
hand.   I looked at blm, puzzled.

said.
"1 confess Ibat jou bare the advantage of me."

I was enacting t lie. All bad changed.

view, very far up. Huth ot os tried
to emu-nil a recognition ot this reversal

. I_ong before Tom left me I realized
tbnt .he was not only ragged, but bun*
gry. and yet tliere stood between me
and him, so far as my helping blm was
concerned, our youth. In which I bad
been his Inferior. The price of a meal,
a snlt of clothes, Indeed, a year'e Income for bim, was to me a mere bagatelle, buf how could 1 offer money to
one who bad led me In everything a
score of years before? Wbat I did was
to take bis address aid trust to my
Ingenuity tp Hnd a way of getting Over
the obstacle.
Tbe next day I Inclosed a check
for 1100 tn a note, mentionim; some fa*
vor he had done me wben we were
boys together and further stating that
after all luck was the on y cause ot
success, and I bad been lucky. 1 also
claimed tbnt It doubtless give me more
pleasure to give htm aid and comfort
tban he experienced In receiving tbe
same. I served the dish as delicately
as possible, but the poor fellow conld
not swallow It He sent bnck the
check, stating that bis III success waa
hla. own fault, and be would not re-
enact himself If he accepted cbarltv
even from an old friend. He bad made
his bed and be would He ln It
I respected bib for Ills refusal, and
yet I could not but consider It stupid.
I had once offered a mnn help when
he had met wltb n misfortune In business who had accepted Ihe offer, recovered himself and by a bit of sharp
practice taken from me three times
the amount I hnd loaned him.
One morning a woman came Into my
office and asked If 1 knew Mr. Thomas
Archer. I acknowledged the acquaintance, and she'told me thst sbe had
gone Into a speculation with him In
which she hnd furnished the cnpltnl-
1500-and It had been sunk. Sbe did
not blame Mr. Archer; be had been
bonest In tbe matter, but a lawyer bad
told ber tbat she might proceed criminally against him. She was uncertain
what to do.
1 asked ber tf she wonld tske balf ol
her claim against my old* friend. 8b<
ssld she would, and on ber assignment
of It to me I gave ber the money. 1
desired to spsre my unfertunste friend
pain, but 1 waa mean enough to cnt
tbe pool1 woman down to balf ber loss.
1 suppose I sbould bars been ashamed
of myself, bnt I wasn't I had the cut
ting down faculty .that we successful
business men usually possess.
Not long after this Archer dropped
In to see me and Incidentally mention
ed that he bsd a scheme on band by
wblcb he expected to make a fortune.
I was very glad to hear It but turned
the eubject fearing he.might smotbel
his pride so far as io ask me to furnish
the necessary capital. I would hare
loved to eupply his wants, even give
blm luxuries, but 1 did not wish to Invest In bis schemes.
It wss not difficult to bead of so
sensitive a man, but In a few days,
having gathered bis courage, be camt
back and asked me If I would consider
00 per cent of tbe profits of the schemt
sufficient reimbursement for the capital necessary to develop It I told him
that I knew a man who did that sort
ot thing and gave him bis address. Hi
went off, mucb encouraged, to And tbs
otber msn.
Whether poor Toro later came to see
through my artifice 1 don't know, but
be never agatn hinted at giving me tht
lion's share of tbe profits of any
scheme.
. One spring, being very mucb ran
down, I desired to go for a few
montha' trip. The only reason for my
not doing so was that I did not care to
go alone nnd knew of no one who
wonld go with me. I thought of Tom
and wrote him a line saying that I wai
III and perbapa my life depended upon
my taking nu outing. If be would go
with me, 1 paying his expenses, hi
might save me. He replied tbat noth
Ing would give blm greater Joy tban
to tbue accommodate bis dear old
chum, but be was at the time much In
terested ln a patent self Oiling coal
scuttle In which others bsd advanced
tbe necessary capital, and be conld nol
leave the enterprise without acting die
honorably toward tbem.
I was much disappointed. At thi
some time 1 knew tbat bis pstent scuttle was but another nnme for bis sensitive pride whicb forbade blm traveling
wltb me at my expense. I could not
but respect blm for bis independence,
bnt I regretted that it 'deprived me ot
Us assistance In recovering my health
It was quite awhile beforo I heard
anything more of Arcber, and then I
received notice of bis death. Ue had
died In a boarding bouse In I distant
city, nis landlady bad beeu very
kind to blm. On tbe day ot bis death
sbe wrote me that be had often spoken
to Her of me and our mutual friend
sblp. I Immediately telegraphed her
to draw oo me for fuuds wltb whicb
to pay doctors' bills, funeral expenses
and any amount Arcber mlgbt owe her
for board. Bhe drew on me, but only
ror IIOO. I felt sure thst thli would
not set matters right and sent a check
for i hundred more.
It was returned wltb ■ note saying
thnt It was unnecessary.
About a yenr after this wben walk*
Inn alone a street I saw a man com
ing woo looked very nn my mend
Archer and Jost as seedy. I thought
be started on seeing me, and be turned
down a-slde street Curious about tbe
matter I followed blm and soon was
convinced that'be was trying to get
away from, me. I caught him; he
turned to face me, and when our eyes
met I law tbe most agonised expression I bsve ever seen on any man's
face.  He was my old friend Tom.
I saw It alL He conld not conquer
his pride, but he could resort to tbe
most tngenlons expedients to enable
me to keep him from starving. I put
my arm through bli and led blm to a
restaurant where I called for a feast
and a quart ot champagne. After 1
bad ailed blm op I said:
"Thli confounded nonsense has been
going on long enough. 1 bave decided
to leave yon tbe Income on (25,000 aa

Always wipe Irons off carefully before using tbem. Wben not In service

Always bate a steady Ore wben Ironing. Add a little fuel at a time, so tbst
tbe heat may never be deadened.
If a large pan Is turned over tbe Irone
they will retain their beat more perfectly.
Irons must be much hotter for starched pieces than for flannels. For tbe
letter tbey must barely bins nnder the
touch of a wet flnger.
Alwaya brush off tbe stove clean before Ironing and never hnve foods frying when Ironing Is being done.
It Is well to bare a separate Ironing
