McBride Government Contemplates Spending Fifty-
five Millions
ranged at Greenwood
Last Tuesday
It has been stated in inner gov*
ernment circles, says a Victoria dispatch, that the legislative assembly
will be called together early in January (or the purpo e of considering
three important measures in addition to routine matters. Th tbree
measures are as follows:
1. To provide a further large sum
of money in aid of Mackenzie &
Mann and their Canadian Northern
enterprise. Tbe amount they must
have in order to enable them to
finish their undertakings in this
province is not less than £25,000,-
000.
2. To provide further moneys for
Messrs. Foley, Welch & Stewart
and tbeir Vancouvei associates, to
enable them to finish the Pacific
Qreat Eastern mil. oad to Fort
George. The further nmount necessary in this case is variously esti-
maetd, but it-will not be less than
£15,000,000. .
3. To authorize the McBride government to borrow for various pro
vincial purposes sums of money
totalling nnt len than 115,000,000.
ThiB information, the dispatch
assures us, may be accepted as au
theotic. Tbe above program is in
contemplation by the premier and
his cabinet at the present moment
and unless their plans miscarry,
will be carried into effect.
Taking into account the guarantees already on the statutes books,
and assuming tbat those contemplated will be made, the province
of British Columbia will have a
staggering load of liabilities amounting to $100,000,000, all of wbich
bave been incurred in a little over
three years.

and some account of such experience with such kinds of grain (or
potatoes) as they have grown, bo
that a promising sort for their conditions may be selected.
Each application must be separate and must be signed by the a p.
plicant. Only one sample of grain
and one of potatoes can be sent to
eacb farm. Applications on any
kind of printed form tan not be ac
cepted. If two or more samples are
asked for in tbe Bame letter only
one will be sent.
As tbe supply of seed is limited,
farmers are advised to apply early;
but the applications will not necessarily be filled in tbe exact order in
whicb tbey are received. Preference
will always be given to the most
thoughtful and explicit requests,
Applications received after the end
of January will probably be too
late.
All applications for grain (and
applications from tbe provinces of
Ontario and Quebec for potatoes)
should be addressed to the Dominion
Cerealist, Central Experimental
Farm, Ottawa. Such applications
require no postage. If otherwise addressed delay and disappointment
may occur
Applications, for potatoes, from
farmers in any other province
should be addressed (postage prepaid) to tbe Superintendent of the
nearest Branch Experimental Farm
in that province.

BLOOD  POISONING
It is Invariably Caused by Bacterial
Infection of a Wound
The bete noire of domestic surgery
Is blood poisoning. Blood poisoning,
or septicaemia, as surgeons call lt, la
not caused by colored stockings, dyes,
chemicals or anything of that kind.
It ls Invariably caused by bacterial
Infection of a wound. The wound may
be a mere pin prick or it may be a
large wound. It makes no difference
what Implement produces the wound.
The question is, was the Implement
covered with gern.s? No matter what
metal lt may be made ot it the Implement Is clean—I.e., surgically sterile—
and if the sltln about the wounded
part Is clean, there ls no likelihood ol
blood poisoning following.
When blood poisoning does occur it
announces Itseh by characteristic
signs. First there is general chilliness, with perhaps light headache and
general aches such ae one feels with
any oncoming fever. The wounded
part swcllB, bums, becomes throbblng-
-ly painful and stops discharging for
a time. Then within a few hours red
streaks may be seen extending up the
extremity to the glands In bend of elbow, knee, groin or armpit. Suoh
signs are always serious, though generally disappearing upon the Institution of proper surgical treatment.
For general purposes where an antiseptic ls desired one of the Bnteet and
most satisfactory to use Is ordinary
tincture ot iodine—not tbe colorless
iodine, whicli Isn't Iodine at all, but
the brown tincture. A few drops or
a teaspoonful of this in a pint or leee
or water makes . valuable gargle,
mouth wash or a wash for Irrigating
a wound.

It, Dandruff Showed on Coat Collar, Cuticura Soap and Ointment
Cured in One Month,
I Celebrated   Academy   Picture*  Work
of Unknown Artists
As a journalist you are doubtless
aware that spooks are as common
in the literary world as blackberries,
so to speak; but It will probably surprise you and your readers to learn
that artistic spooks have grown rapidly in numbers during the last year
or two, said a well-known artist to
the writer in the course of a recent
conversation. No matter vjiat picture gallery you may stroll Into, one
or two of the works that attract your
attention can be termed frauds—that
Is, ihey are not painted by the people whose names appear on thorn,
but by paid ghosts.
It does not follow tliat because a
canvas bears the name of a man or
woman, known or unknown, that lt is
the actual work of the person who
signed It. A capital picture exhibited In a prominent gallery the other
day bora thc name of a lady. The
picture was a still-life study, and lt
was painted by a black-and-white
artist who draws cartoons tor certain newspapers, lie received a big
sum for his services.
There are many clever artists who
are too poor to refuse a good price
to paint a picture for exhibition under another's name, and ln my early
days, when I knew what poverty
meant, I painted a picture for a
wealthy gentleman who was considered a talented amateur, but whose
actual work was -too crude for exhibition. The picture I turned out represented a shipwreck and was put
on show in r. gallery In a northern
town. The man whose name appeared on the canvas sold it eome
time later for $1,000. He paid ine
(400 to paint it, and at the lime I
should have been glad to paint ft for
a tenth of that figure, Buch an urgent need I had of money.
Scores of pictures exhibited evory
year at the principal art galleries ai-e
not the productions of single artists.
Artists collaborate to an enormous
extent; snd oven R.A.'s have before
now called in a ghost to touch up a
picture for exhibition. An ai-ttsr. may
be weak in the matter of sky, for Instance. If he painted In the sky
himself his picture might be rejected
when submitted lo an exhibition. To
prevent this he calls lu a sky expert, a man who ls noted for his sky
and cloud effects. This man puts in
the sky, receives payment for doing
so, and would never think of mentioning his work lo a living soul.
This kind of collaboration can
hardily be termed unscrupulous. Collaboration in commercial art is very
common. Take our poster artists
and the designers of newspaper advertisements. Many of theBe men
employ assistants—clever young fellows—to complete designs and place
in any wording required, after they
have drawn the principal and most
striking parts of thc poster or advertisement, as the case may be.
There never was such .- baby; there
never was, never had bcen and never

No, my precious, cried the delighted
father, embracing her affectionately
over this show of proper sentiment.
Because, resumed Molly, she'll be

Where Not One but Two or Three
Oxen Might be Roasted
The kitchet. of olden times seem to
have been of extraordinary size, judging from the Investigations made by
an English historical society. At
Hurstmonciaux for example, there
was a kltche: twenty-eight feet high,
with thre.. huge MrepUce^ and a bakehouse -with an ove:-. fourteen feet in
cameter.
There is au old Welsh kitchen near
Llandudno, dating from-the fifteenth

these curious old devices may be mentioned a meatjack with a flywheel, a
steel toasting stand and a fan bel-

At Battle abbey there ls a curious
old kitchen containing much ot interest to the antiquary, and a kitchen
at St. Mary's hall, Coventry, Is remarkable for the famous 'knaves' post
to which, it appears, refractory scullions were temporarily attached by
way of punishment.
There ls a medieval kitchen at
Westminster abbey, although little remains by which to identify it aside
from the rubble flooring, the buttery
hatch and an adjoining cellar. Hampton Court palacfl shows its great
kitchen wili vaulted roof and Beta ot
antlers on its walls.
Englishmen of otlier dayi. fully recognized the advantages ot a large
kitchen. There ls extant an order,
dated April 19, 1206, wherein Hugh
de Nevill is commanded to have the
king's kitchen at Clarendon roofed
with shingles and to cause two new
kitchens to be erected, one at Marlborough and the other at Ludgershall,
to which 'to flireBa' the royal dinners.
In this order It is stated that it ls
particularly directed that each kitchen
shall be provided with a furnace sufficiently large to roast two or three

No, thanks, ropllei. the barber.
Face powder? said the caller, producing another packet.
No; it no good, said the barber, I

Apparently undaunted, the caller
produced various other things—a bottle of hair tonic, a pot of pomade, a
tube of face cream, and bo on.
No, no, no! said ihe barber, des-
pr.-ately. I tell you I don't want any
of them.
I know you don't wbb the calm reply-

VALUABLE HORSE SAVED
JY "NERVILINE"
Was Too Sors and   Lame   to   Work
Quickly Cured by Nerviline
"I have had a long experience in
treating horses, and I can safely say
that I know of no liniment for strains,
sprains, and swelling that is so useful
around the stable as Nerviline." Thus
writes Mr. J. K. Murchtson, trom his
home, Crofts Hill P.O. "I had a fine
young mare that wrenched her right
foreleg, and from the shoulder down
she was stiff, sore, and swollen. I
applied Nerviline, and lt worked like a
charm; ln fact, that'mare was In shape
to work a day after I used Nerviline.
"We bave used Nerviline on our
farm for twenty-five years, and never
found it wanting. For man or beast
lt ls a wonderful liniment."
Five thousand letters recommend
Nerviline as a general household liniment, aa an all-round cure for aches
and pains.    Try ih yourself.

A well known Idiot named Jamie

his replies. The members ot one parish had for some time distressed the

day when Jamie was sitting In the
front gallery wide awake when many
wero slumbering round him the clergyman endeavored to arouse the attention of bis hearers by stating the
fact, saying: You see oven Jamie Frozen the idiot, dees not fall asleep, as
so many of you are doing. Jamie, not

idiot I would have been sleeping too.

Traces of the whereabouts
of a Inst M.P. P. have at last
been discovered. E. Miller,
member for Grand Forks, is
billed to address the electors
of the Islands district. It is
much easier for Mi*. Miller
to talk to the coast people
Mian it is for nim to face his
own constituents.
All the paid government
papers at the coast now have
their batteries trained on the
Liberal candidate in the
Islands constituency. The
noise they are making sounds

Anyone with a crazy hobby
always manages to get into
print. A writer in the Canadian Courier advocates the
purchase by the goveanments
of Canada and the United
.States of a strip of land ten
miles wide ou each side of
the international boundary
line, making a total width of
twenty miles, from Lake Superior to the Pacific ocean—
abouf 1500 miles in length—
and turn it into an international park and forest, and
make it a home for wild animals, birds and fish. In other
words, this writer wants to
convert Grand Forks and all
the other towns and cities on
both sides of the boundary
line into a zoo. At the present high cost of living, we
think that this strip of land is
more valuable for growing
foodstuffs for the masses than
as a home for wild animals.
The animals can move farther
north. •

KING OF COLORS
Red Has More Meaning and Greater
Effeot Than /.ny Other Hue
Red has a greater effect upon both
man and the lower animals than any
other color. It ls, In fact, the king
ot colors, according to Professor W.
Peabody Bartlett.
Perhaps, says Professor Bartlett, lf
our blood vere green Instead of red
we would hold green as the king of
colors, because blood la life. The
sight of it stirs both man and the lower animals, aud for that reason the color ot it is the most effective of all
colors.
Every one knows the antipathy a
bull has to red, how he will bellow and
become blindly enraged at the Bight of

only animal that Ib affected by this
color. Put a dog ln a kennel and

with a white cloth or a black cloth,

Put a rooster ln a dark bag or a

thin red cloth, so that the light may
shiue through and show the color, and
the rooster will craw lustily. This ls
not because be might think the red
indicated sunrise, because roosters
will crow long before the first faint

The little daughter ot a prominent

was, of course, intensely interested in
all that went on.
A true little Yankee, her flrst remark on coming out was:
Do all those little boys ln nighties
get paid for singing?
Yes; I suppose so, replied her mother.
And does father get paid too?
Yes.
Well, I shouldn't think they'd have
to pay him much, for he does nothing
but fall:, and he just loves to do that.

The Irrtelsttble craving which drives all drinking men on and ultimately
wrecks them physically, mentally and financially can bo removed by tlio

"Ot course They praised each other's bate and dresses as tbey stood ln
tbe hall, but lt was all hypocrisy, you
know. The countess was perhaps th*
best dressed, though It was a pretty
even thing all over. They sailed away
llko three graces, and I kicked the goat
out of tbe halls, run tbe dogs, on to the
street and heaved the carts In the back
yard. For two hours I had a house to
be proud of, and I bnd mado up my
mind to tell McMurpliy to raise the
rent when the ladles returned. They
had treated each Other to clnm broth,
Ice cream and candy und had come
back in a taxi to end up iu u swagger

there was a sensation on thnt block,
and fifty otber women turned pale as
they looked out of their windows."
"Vhas some rubber tires ou der

as he seemed to call up a picture In his
mind's eye.
"Aye, thero wns, Mr. Wasserman."
replied the janitor. '-Yes, there was

it wds tbe taxi tbat was our undoing."
"Did abe broke down?"
"Not at all. Tho ladles didn't bave
money enough to settle tbe fare, you
see, or tbey wanted to bent each otber.
They conld scrape only 45 cents together, while tbe fore wns a dollar and

wasn't tsio minutes before tho wbole

"'Who you calln dago?' yelled the

To satisfy the cboffer and avoid a row

I locked tho doors on the crowd."
"Und so all vhas peace onco more?"

I   1,200 MILES FOR MATCHES.
Explorer Stefansson'* Story sf Awkward Mishap In the Arctic.
With a rifle and • sufficient supply
ti ammunition, said Ur. Vilhjalmur
Stefansson, the Canadian explorer,
lecturing before the Royal Geographical Society in London, it is possible
to go over the discovered lands ot
the Arctic In the oourse of an interesting lecture Ur. Stefansson told
• remarkable Btory of a five years'
sojourn in Arctio regions in search of
a race ol Eskimos who had never before aeen a white man. They left
New York in April oi 1908, and the
small item that may upset the beat-
laid plans was illustrated by the fact
that they were relying upon a supply
of. matches at Herschell Island on the
north Alaskan coast, and as these
were not lorthcoming Dr. Anderson
had to retrace his steps a distance ol
1,200 miles to Barrent Point for them.
"The whole expedition cost only 110,-
000," eaid Ur. Stefansson, and quite
halt that sum was spent in securing
matches. From Herschell Island the
party pushed steadily eastward and
reached Cape Parry in the winter, and
here they found a whale, which eked
out their provisions fortuitously.
"That whale," recalled the explorer
with a dry smile, "had been dead four
years." The Eskimos said so. It had
frozen in the winter, and had thawed
in the summer. It was alter he had
leen two years in the Arctic that Stefansson set out upon his speciflo quest
ior the Eskimos who, to use his own
words, "had not been contaminated
by missionaries or traders—(laughter)
—ct course, I mean irom the scientific
point oi view." After a long pursuit
Stefansson, standing on a hut, saw
the party he was searching for seal
bunting about seven miles away, and
went after them. The Eskimos thought
they were spirits, and prepared to
defend themselves, but hi- (StefanB-
aon's) Eskimos discovered that they
spoke a similar dialect, and peace was
secured and introductions to all the
tribe—men, women and children—ensued. Intellectually these Eskimos
were on a level with thc inhabitants
ot Great Britain 10,000 years ago. It
was on Victoria Island that he came
across tbe blonde Eskimos, whom he
preferred to call bronze or copper.
They eyes were blue, their eyebrows
and whiskers fair, and the formation
ol the head and face akin to Europeans. Sir John Franklin had recorded that he saw one such Eskimo
in 1824 in the Coppermine district,
and Stefansson said he had come to
the conclusion tbat they were descendants ol an ancient race of settlers
who, originating in Scandinavia, had
traveled to Hackenzie by way of Iceland.
Gav* Wolseley Raspberries.
Now that the British nation is la»
menting the loss of one ot hsr greatest
warriors of modern times, it is interesting to meet with people who accompanied Lord Wolseley on the Red
River expedition, which made his
name a nevcr-to-be-for0*otten one to
the Canadian people.
Suoh an one is Alexander Ritchie,
of North Toronto. Mr. Ritchie, moreover, as far as he is aware, enjoyed
the unique distinction of being the
youngest member of the volunteers
who took part in repelling tho Fenian
Raid in I860.
Ur. Ritchie was born st Kingston
in 1850, and at thc age of 14 he joined
the volunteers. When the Fenian
Raid took place iif 1866, Mr. Ititchio,
then only 16 years old, wss sent with
his regiment to Cornwall, where it
was ststioncd till the trouble blew
over.
In 1870 the Louis Riel rebellion,
which led to the Red River expedition, broke out, and Private Ritchie
was one of the members ol the expedition. Mr. Ritchie recalls how one
day, at a wild spot away beyond Lake
Superior, ho and some of his com-
panione-in-arms were picking raspberries when Col. Wolseley rode up on
horseback. Mr. Ritchie, who had his
linen hat cover full of the berries,
offered them to his commander, and
the colonel helped himself.
Asked about tlie expedition, Mr.
Ritchie described how tliey went by
boat to Prince Arthur's Landing, now
Port Arthur, but st that lime an unsettled wilderness, and of the arduous
Journey from there to Fort Garry.
Specially prepared boats, manning
six oars and about >10 feet long, wcro
used for transporting the men and
supplies up'the Red River. The lirst
boat act off on the 4lli ot July and
it was tlie S?th ol August before the
last boat reached Fort Garry,

Traces of the whereabouts
of a lost M. P. P. have at last
lieen discovers.!. E. Miller,
member for Grand Forks, is
billed to address the electors
of the Islands district. It is
much easier for Mr. Miller
to talk to the coast people
Mian it is for nim to face his
own constituents.
Am. the paid government
papers at the coast now have
their batteries trained on the
Liberal candidate in the
Islands constituency. The
noise they are making sounds
like a bui'gla-'s dog barking at
a parson.
Anyone with a crazy hobby
always manages to get into
print. A writer in the ■T'an-
adian Courier advocates the
purchase by the gove-mments
of Canada and the United
States of a strip of land ten
miles wide on each side of
the international boundary
line, making a total width of
twenty miles, from Lake Superior to the Pacific ocean—
abouf 1500 miles in length—
and turn it into an international park and forest, and
make it a home for wild animals, birds and fish. In other
words, this writer wants to
convert Grand Forks and all
the other towns and cities on
both sides of the boundary
line into a zoo. At the present high cost of living, we
think that this strip of land is
more valuable for growing
foodstuffs for the masses than
as a home for wild animals.
The animals can move farther
north. •
Canada is now back to the position
she occupied in 1891. The government
is sending out statisticts f join Ottawa
to prove that the country is prosper-
ous. When the Laurier government
was in power, as its leader predicted
would be the case, it was not necessary to prove by statistical quotations
that prosperity abounded Canadians
felt in their pockets and reflected it
from their countenances.—Victoria
