Experiments to determine the
amount ot water which will give the
best result* in tree growth, quality
and yield of fruit and to ascertain the
influence pf alfalfa, clover aud
vetches as cover crops, are being made
at Zillah and Giandview, Wash., under the direction of Stephen 0. Jayne,
of Spokane, manager of .the department of irrigation investigations of the
United States department. The purpose of the tests is to gain knowledge
of what will aid the irrigation farmer
in the way of greater efficiency and
results by economy of effort. "The
growth of fruit trees leads to the
gradual exhaustion of the soil and the
depletion of plant food." says Mr.
Jayne. "It is detrimental to the
physical, as well as the chemical, constituents of the soil. The prohlem is
how to counteract this. Leguminous
crops, such as alfalfa, clovers and
vetches, absorb nitrogenous substance
from the air, fix it in tbe soil and
thereby feed ttie trees and also add
the needed humus to the soil. They
•re better agents for covering than
garden truck, which exhausts the soil
without much compensation. In irrigation it often happens too much
•rater is used, leading to expensive
disappointment. It hu been conclusively proved that two feet of water
gives almost as much yield as four
fort, I am carrying out an interesting experiment ot growing alfalfa in
galvanized iron tanks, two feet in
diameter and four feet deep, holding a
half ton of soil. Alfalfa is sown and
water supplied by sub irrigating pipes
to reduce the loss by evaporation to a
minimum. The water applied during
the season i« carefully,weighed, and
thus tha amount required to produce
a given amount of alfalfa will be determined. Allowance must be made
for the nature of different soils."

Strange Legal Tangle
The new "Siamese twins" Rosa
and Jasofa Blazek, are the joint heroines of a strange legal tangle at Hanover.
The twins, who hare been on exhibition, broke a contract with their
manager, and when sued Rosa swore
that she was a pauper, while Jasofa
refused to plead. As a consequence
the court issued a warrant for Jasofa
and a heartless bailiff was despatched
to arrest her.
As the twins are grown together,
the officer took both to prison,thereby
overstepping his authority. Rosa immediately applied tor an injunction,
and as she could not be liberated with
out Jasofa, Jasofa too was released.
Now it turns out that the release of
Jasofa constitutes contempt of court,
just as the imprisonment of Rosa was
illegal under the law.
The bailiff who arrested Rosa has
been severely reprimanded, and the
judge who relea sed Jasofa has been
called to account by the minister of
justice.

NEWS OF THE CITY
From a circular to The Sun, it is
noticed tbat the agricultural department has secured a good array of
talent tor the regular course of
spring lectures on a variety of subjects before the var ous farmers' institutes in the province. Grand
Forks has been omitted from the
itinerary, which would naturally lead one to infer tbat the department considers that the farmers
of this district have graduated in
scientific farming.

Pointers forthe Gardner
Pick oft all the blossoms from
newly-set strawberry beds; thus you
send all the plants' strength back into
themselves—in growth. It is unwise
to let plants fruit the first season.
Two ounces of fresh white hellebore
steeped in one gallon of water, used
as .a spray, is the best remedy for
currant and gooseberry worms. But it
must be use early, when the first
worms appear.    Watch for them.
Surplus suckers in backberry or red
raspberry patches should be treated
just like weeds; don't let the rows get
too wide or too thick. But do not hoe
up all the new shoots coining up in
the rows; remember that our berry
crop next year will be borne on the
canes which are grown this season.
Many fruit growers advise that the
new growth of raspberry and black
berry canes which ara to furnish the
fruit next year, should be pinched off
when about 18 inches high.
Children's Definitions
The late Frederic R. Coudert, the
noted lawyer and wit, had a great
kindness for children. He collected
indofaligably the quaint -sayings of
children, and one of the treasures of
his library was a small manuscript
volume filled with definitions that
children had composed. The volume
was called "A Child's Dictionary,"
and these are some of the definitions
that Mr. Coudert would read from
the book:
Dust—Mud with the juice squeezed
out of it.
Snoring—Letting off sleep.
Backbiter—A mosquito.
Fan—A thing to brush   the  warm
oft with.
Ice—Water  that  went to sleep in
the cold.
Apples—The   bubbles  that   apple
trees blow.
Tbe farmers will soon Im through
with their spring work. Then they
will have nothing more to do
until it is time to collect the money
for tbeir crops.

jeweler's endorsement.    With this the

District Fire Warden Mix went
up to Greenwood this week to assist
in fighting a bad bush fire at Dead-
wood. Tbe fire iB reported to have
been fierce, but with the help of the
miners of the district it was extinguished before much damage had
been done. During the week t bush
fire also started at Sheep creek, but
it was quikly got under control. As
soon as the weather becomes favorable Mr. Mix intends to make a trip
up the North Fork for the purpose of
burning tbe rubbish and all inflammable material around tbe bridges
in order to afford them greater protection in the event of forest fires
this summer. • The same course will
be pursued at all dangerous points
along tbe C. P. R. light of way.
The Planting'of Trees
a
Once, when the world was younger
and life was less complex, men and
trees were better acquainted than
they have heen in later years. Tbe
tongues of trees were not a mere figure of speech; the dryads and otber
wood nymphs peopled every leafy
covert But tbese times have long
since passed away. They were followed by ages in which tbe tree was
simply a useful thing for ships and
houses and bridges.
Iu our generation there is a re
newed appreciation ol the iree and
a closer compnnship with it. We
find that it teaches lessons; we see in
it a symbol; we value it for many
things more peunanent than the
lumber which soon decays. So it
has come about that trees are
planted and cared for—millions and
millions of them every year—and
the love of tbe tree is encouraged in
every youthful heart.
Arbor day, whicn was established
in Nebraska less tban forty years
ago. is now observed in every state
and in many foreign lands. In
Texas it falls late in February, and
in some of tbe northern states from
Maine to Montana, it is not celebrated until May is here. Japan has
celebrated Arbor day upon November 3 for thirty years.
A Chicago man bas recently offered to pay for setting out trees
along miles of highway in his native
town in New England. Absent sons
often remember tbeir home towns
with substantial gifts—libraries,
churches, town halls, monuments,
school buildings, memorial bridges
and shade Irtes along the highways
are worthy to be included in the list.
But great wealth is not needed by
those who desire to enriah a community and bless posterity by planting trees.
All other holidays look to thc
past; Arbor duy looks forward to the
years to come. It is but a means to
sn end. The care and protection of
the trees are no less Important than
thc planting. He who plants a tree
plants many good thingc for the future, but they may all lie lost if the
spirit of Arbor day is not kept alive
througo the whole year.—Youth's
Companion.

(Continued.)
There was something so utterly sad
and hopeless in this that Gurdon averted his eyes from the girl's face. He
glanced in the direction of the door;
then it required all his self control lu
repress a cry, for in the comparative
gloom of thc passage beyond he could
just make out the figure of Vera, who
stood there with her linger on her lip
as if imposing silence. He could see
that in her hand she held something
that looked like a chisel. A moment
later she flitted away once more, leav
ing Gurdon to puzzle his brain as'to
what it ull meant.
"I am sorry for all this," the cripple said. "You have entirely by accident come face to face with a phase
in my life which is sacred and inviolate. Really, if I had no other reason for reducing you to silence, this
would be a sufficiently powerful inducement. My dear Beth, I really
must ask you ——"
Whatever the cripple might have
intended to say, the speech was never
finished; for, at that moment, the
electric    lights    vanished    suddenly,
fdunging the whole house into ubso-
ute "darkness. A moment later, footsteps came hurrying' along ^he hall,
and a voice waa heard to say that thu
fuse from the meter had gone, and it
would be impossible to turn on the
light again until the officials , had
heen ciilled in to repair the damage.
At the sume moment Gurdon rose to
his feet and crept quietly in the direction of the door. Here, at any
rate, was a chance of escape, for that
his life was in dire peril Gurdon had
felt for some little time. He bad
hardly reached the doorway when he
felt a slim hand touch his and he
was guided from the room into the
passage beyond. He could give a
pretty fair idea ns to the owner of
the slim fingers that trembled in his
own, but he made no remark; he allowed himself to be led on till his
feet stumbled against some stairs.
"This way," a voice whispered.
"Pay nothing, make no protest. You
will be quit! safe from further harm."
Gurdon did exactly us he was told.
He found himself presently nt the top
of a staircase, nnd a little later i.i a
room, the door of which was closed
very quietly by his guide.
"I think I can guess whom f hnve
to thank for this," Gurdon murmured. "But why did you not take me
to the front door, or the hack entrance leading to the garden? It, was
lucky for me that the lights failed
at the critical moment—a piece of
nominal good fortune, such as usually
only happens in a story. But I should
feel a great deal safer if I were on
the other side of the front door."
"Thnt is quite impossible," Vera
said for she it wus who hnd come to
Gurdon's rescue. "Both doora nre
locked, nnd all the rooms on the
ground floor nre furnished with shutters. As to the lights going out, I
am responsible for it. 1 learnt all
about the electric light when I lived
in a mining camp in Mexico. I had
only to remove one of the lamps nnd
apply my chisel to the two poles and
thereby put out every fuse 1.1 the
house. That is why the light failed,
as it occurred to me that ih the confusion that followed the darkness, I
should be ill a position to save you.
But you little realize how near vou
hnve heen to death to-night. And,
why, oh why, did you follow me in
this way? It was very wrong of you."
"It was Venner's idea," Gurdun
said. "He had a Btrunge tear that
you were going into some danger.
He asked me to fo'low you and I did
so. As to the manner of my getting
here  "
"I know 1*111 about that," Vera
said hurriedly. "I hnve been listen
ing to your conversation. I dare sny
you are curious to know something
more about this strange household,
hut lor the present, you will he fur
better employed in getting nway from
it. I shall tint he ensy in my mind
till you are once more in the street.
CHAPTER VIII.
Missing.
Gurdon waited to henr whnt I.i.
companion was going to say now.
He had made up Irs mind to pine"
himself implicitly in her hands, and
M her decide for the best, Evidently
he had found himself in a kind ot
lunatic asylum, where one inhabitant
nt least had developed a dangerous
lorm of homicidal mania, and he had
a pretty sure conclusion that Vera
had saved his life. It was no im,
now to ask questions, that wouln
come Inter on.
"I am sure I am nwfullv grateful
to you," Gurdon snid. "Who nre
these peonle, und why do thev behave in this insene fashion? This is
not exactly the kind of mennge "0
expects to find in one of the best an-
pointed mansions in the west end."
"I enn fell you nothing about it,"
vera snid. There wns n ninrk*"l cold-
ll "ss in her voice that told Gordon he
was uoing too fur. "I can tell you
nothing. One thing yon may rest" assured of—I am in no kind of dnnger
nor am I likely to be. My concern
chiefly at the present moment is witl.
you. I want you to get back as soon
as you can to the Great Empire Hotel, and. ease Gerald's mind as to
myself."
"i hardly like to go without you,"
Gurdon murmured.
"But you  must." Vera    protestea
"I am ns absolutely safe here as if )
i were in my own room.    Now, conic
! this way.    I dare not strike a light.
11 cun only take you by the hand and
j lend you  to the top of the    house.
Every inch of the place is perfectly
familiar to me and you are not like-
I ly to come to the lenst harm. Please
j don't waste any more time."
Gurdon yielded against his better
judgment. A moment or two later he
found himself climbing through a
skylight on to the flat leads at the
top of the house. By the light of the
town he could now set what he was
doing, and pretty well where he wns.
From the leads h» could look down
into the gnrden, though, ns yet, he
could not discern any avenue of
escape.
"The thing is quite easy." Vera
explnined. "The late occupant of
the house had a nervous dread of
fire, and from every floor he had a
series of rope ladders nrrnnged. See.
there is one fixed to the chimney. I
have onlv to throw it over, nnd you
can reach the eart'en without delay;
then I will pull the. ladder up neain
nnd no one will he the wiser. Now,
nlease leii"e me without any further
delay in the absolute assurance thnt
I shell be bnck again within an
hour."
A few minutes later Gurdon was1 in
the street again, making his wnv to
the hotel where Venner was awaiting
him.
It was a strange story that he hnd
to tell, a very thrilling nnd interest,
ing adventure, but ce which, after
all, still further complicnted the mys-
torv and rendered it almost unintelligible.
"Arid you mean to sav yon hnve
actually been face to face with oui
cripple fri*>nd?" Venner s-id. "Y*ni
menn to rjiv that he wonld ectuallv
have murdered you if Ver** hnd not
Interfered in that providential manner? I supoose I must, n-eept your
assurance that sh» is Absolutely 'safe
though I ce.n't help feeling she has
exaggerated her own position. I nm
terribly anxious about. h"r. I hnve
pn idea which 1 should like to cerry
out. I feel tolenblv sure that this
picturesoue crinple of ours could tell
os everything that'we want to know.
Besides unl"ss I r,o something I shfll.
go mud. Whnt do vou snv to pnying
the interesting eripn'e a visit to-mo-
row night, and forcing him to tel.
us everything?"
Gordon shook his hend: he wns not
particularly impressed with the suggestion thet Venner had made.
"Of coui-s*! we could get into the
house easily enough," he said. "Now
thnt 1 know the secret of the cellar,
there will b« no difficulty about that.
Still, don't you think it seems rether
ridiculous to try this sort of thing
when yonr wife is in a position to
tell vou the whole thing?"
"But fhe wonld decline to do nny-
thing of the kin*'." Venner protested. "She hns told me that her lips
ere sealed: she haR even no explanation to offer for the way in which
she left me within hn!f un hour of
our becoming man nnd wife. I should
almost be justified in forcing her to
speak, hut, you sse, I cannot do thut.
Therefore I must treat her in a way
as if she were one of our enemies. I
have a very strong fancy for pnying
our cripple friend a visit, nnd, if th*>
worst came to the worst, we could
convince hiin that we are emphatically not on the side of Mark Fenwick. At uny rate, I mean to have
a try, and ,f you don't like to come
in  "
"Oh, I'll come in fast enough,"
Gurdon suid. -"You had better meet
me to-morrow night nt my rooms, Raj
about eleven; then we will see what
we can do with a view to the solution of the mystery."
At the appointed time, Venner duly
put in an appearance. He was clothed in a dark suit nnd cap, Gordon
donning a similar costume. Under
his arm Venner had a small brown
paper parcel.
"What have you got there?" Gurdon asked.
"A pnir of tennis shoes." wns the
response.    "And if you take my advice, you would hnve u puir too. My
iden is to tnke off one's hoots directly one gets into the seclusion ot the
garden and chnnge into these shoes.
Now. come along, let's get it over."
It wns nn easy matter to reach the
gurileii   without being  observed,  nnd
in a very short time the two friends
were standing close to the  windows
of the large room nl the bnck of the
house.   There wns not so much ns a
glimmer of light lo be seen anywhere
within.    Very  cautiously    they    felt
their way along until  they came at
length to the grating through whic'i.
Gurdon  bud   mnde  so  dramatic    nn
entrance the night hefor".    He too1.-
from his pocki>t a box of vestas and
ventured to strike one.    He held  it
down close to the   ground,    shndinc I
the tiny point of flame with his hand I
"Here is a bit of luck    to   begin j
with," he chuckled.    "They haven't
fastened this grating up ngain.      f
suppose  my escape last night mils'
hnve upset them.    At nny rat-*, her*?. I
is n we.-.' into the house without run-1
oing the risk  of beina   nrr"»ted   fir j
burglary, nnd if the police did catch
us we should find i: nn exceedingly j
awkward matter to frame an excuse !
to satisfy a magistrate." I
"Thnt seemR nil right," Venner snid
"When we get into the cellar, it's nny
odds thnt we find the door of the
stairs lock"d. I don't supnose th-'
grating has been forgotten.   You see,
it is not such an easy matter to get
the British workman to do a job on
the spur of the moment."
"Well, come along; we shall soon
ascertuin that," Gurdon said. "Oncrf
down these steps, we shall be able to
use our matches.'
lihey crept cautiously down the
stairs into the damp and mouldy cellar; thence up the steps on the other
side, where Gurdon * lighted one of
his matches. The door was closed,
but it yielded quite easily to the
touch, and at length the two men
were in the part of the house which
wus given over to the use of the serr
vant:. So far as they could judge
the place was absolutely deserted.
Doubtless the domestic staff had retired to bed. All the same it seemed
strange to find no signs of life in the
kitchen. The stove was cold, and
though the grate was full of cinders,
it was quite apparent thnt no fire
had been lighted there for the pnst
lour and twenty hours. Again, there
was no furniture in the kitchen besides a large table and n couple of
chjiirs. The dressers were empty,
and the shelves deprived of their
usual burden.
"This is a precious odd thing,"
Venlier murmured. "Perhaps we
shnll hnve better luck on the dining
room floor. I suppose we had better
not turn on the lights I"
"Thnt would he too risky," Gurdon snid. "However. I have plenty
of matches, which will serve our purpose equally  well."
On cautiously reaching the hall a
further surprise, awaited the intruders.
There wns absolutely nothing there—
not so much ns an umbrella stnnd.
The marble floor wns swept bare of
everything, the big dining-room which
the n'eht hefore had heen most luxuriously furnished, was now strinped
and empty; not so much as a flower

CAN'T BE COUNTERFEITED.
Bank   of England Notes   Defy Exact
Reproduction,
About 18J9 a great outcry was
raised against the Bnnk of England
lor not adopting a style of note that
could not be imitated, and nt the
same time preventing the sacrifice of
life which at that period was common, the punishment for forgery
being death. The subject at last became so pressing that the Govern-
ment appointed commissioners to
investigate the cause of the numerous forgeries, and whether a mode
could be devised whereby the forging of bank notes might be prevented.
Previous to this investigation tha
directors of the bank had been endeavoring to remedy 'he evil, many
plans having been submitted to
them, all of which they were obliged
to reject.
The bnnk placed before the commissioners 180 different projects thnt
had been recommended for adoption
s.nd seventy varieties of paper made
hy way of experiment. The result of
all this labor was the bank note of
to-day.
The color of the paper is peculiar,
and cannot be imitated exactly by
jounterfeiters, except at great expense. The combined thinness and
strength of the paper are also unique.
It is mnde in sheets large enough for
two notes. Ench note before it is
sized weighs about eighteen grains,
and then if doubled, it is strong
enough to suspend a weight of thirty-
six pounds.
The texture of the paper is also
peculiar, lt haa a crisp feel, in-
variably the same, and such that
bank clerks of experience can readily
detect forgeries by this test nlone.
Then the wire mark i pressed in the
making by n frame, costly to make
and difficult to use, is pnctically
inimitable.
Emh note has thin, rough edges,
uncut, not to be produced by any
mode of rutting paper that is pot
devised expressly for the purpose.
The puper for printing is damped
with water in the exhausted receiver
of nn nir pump. The ink used in ths
Mate printing is made of Frankfort
filnrk, which is composed of the charcoals oi the tendrils and husks of
thc (li rmiin grape ground with lin-
seed oil. TH** ink has a peculiar and
very deep slinde of blnck. common
black inks, being timed e'uher with
hiin.' or brown.
Dresden  China.
It is to Frederick Bottger. a native
of Saxony—1082-1719—that we owe th*
secret of making china or porcelain
It was in 1710 that a lucky accident
revealed to Bottger the true nature
of the required paste. Having noticed
the unusual weight of some hair now.
der, he Inquired what it was made if
and found that it was a finely powdered clay from Aue. He forthwith procured some of the clay, mnd» vessels
of it and, to his infinite delight, learned that he had at last found the very
material he wanted. In a word, he
had made the discovery of pore-lain.
Beginning of the Year.
January 1 was not made N»w Year's
day in England until 1761. Tht
proper bepinning of the year is in
March, which is the beginning of
spring, when all nature is new. Before January 1 waa adopted by thc
English Parliament as the legal lie-
ginning of the year March 25 was ths
date. In the Roman calendar also
March was the firat month.
STOWAWAYS.
The Ocean Art ol Ticketless Travel
Extensively Practiced.
Stowaways being usually considered rather interesting personages to
read about, a newspaperman waited
I upon a certain big steamship com-
| pany to learn something about the
; methods of the passengers who don't
pay.
Although he was not actually referred downstairs to "our Stowaways'
Department," the visitor was at once
taken up in a lift to a gentleman who
might almost claim to have made a
lifelong study of stowaways.
"Stowaways things of the past I" he
ejaculated, in response to the caller's
suggestion. "I should rather describe
them as being decidedly of the present. Personally, I believe stowing-
away has become more popular of
recent years. The reason? The
South African war, the rush to the
Cape. No work there; so on to Australasia, anywhere, then home again.
Even to-day, after boats leave Cape
Town, there is always a stowaway-
hunt—a kind of 'I spy' for the crew.
"Stowaways are of two kinds. There
are those who smuggle themselves on
board anyhow, and hide amongst the
cargo in the more usual, unsophisticated way. The others saunter aboard
with the passengers' friends, and,
ignoring 'All ashore!' pose comfortably as passengers themselves, trusting to luck and cool cheek to dodge
the ticket-taker.
"Look at one of the Castle boats 1
Thirteen days at sea, twenty-four
hours from Southampton, a well-
groomed individual inquired of the
chief officer if he could be provided
with a railway ticket to London, instead of continuing the voyage to its
end. It was finely done, but bluff,
nothing else. The man had no right
on board at all, and was given into
custody.
"One stowaway went to New York
in a packing-case. He was penned
up for sixteen days, lying upon hay,
with two dozen soda-water bottles ol
sweetened coffee and a packet of letters from his young lady with him.
The man nearly lost his reason.
"The West Coast of Africa is a terror for colored stowaways, constant
watch having to be kept on the
steamers. Recently a mail boat arrived at Plymouth with twelve Kroo-
boy stowaways on board, one of them
bringing with him his tall silk hat!
"At some ports now dogs are kept,
and trained to run loose among the
cargo ere the vessel sails and nose out
stowaways. The sailors call them
'bilge hounds.' One dog could not he
induced to quit, so the ship sailed
with him, and next day he dragged
to light a man's wooden leg. There
was a one-legged stowaway in hiding.
"Aboard liners, a stowaway is signed on as an assistant steerage steward. Place under the orders of the
chief steward, it depends a great deal
on his own demeanor and shrewdness
whether he is handed over to the
police or given a proper discharge at
the finish of the trip.
"I have known stowaways to depart
in the best of spirits and bodily condition, and with two or three sovereigns jingling in their pockets."
Compensation Curiosities.
The British public has some queer
ideas about the Workmen's Compensation Act.
All sorts of funny claims are made
under its provisions, and an Answers'
man, who has made inquiries of some
of the leading companies who insure
under the Act, has discovered some
droll claims.   Here are a few:
Cow, whisking her tail, causes injury to milkmaid's eye.
Servant receives shock through seeing large Teddy bear when room was
only dimly lighted.
Manservant strained leg through
stamping on rat.
Coachman, proceeding from stable,
struck on face by master's slipper,
intended foi a singing cat.
Cook, breaking coal, piece went
down her throat.
Butler, hand injured by pin in embracing parlormaid.
Curate scalded through stumbling
whilst carrying tea-urn at parochial
gathering.
Clergyman bitten by toy dog whilst
visiting.
"Dsath a Pleasure."
The fact that Lord Erskine recently
celebrated his seventieth birthday recalls the amusing stories told of tne
first Lord Erskine, wbo was Lo d
Chancellor in 1806, and a great friend
of the first Earl of Leicester, at whose
place, Holkham, h: enjoyed the society of Dr. Parr, the famous English scholar. Parr considered that
the highest compliment he could pay
anyone was to compose that man's
epitaph, and was heard one day gravely informing Lord Erskine "that he
bad every intention of writing his
lordship's epitaph," upon which Lord
Erskine replied that such an honor
would make death a pleasure." The
ignorance of this Lord Erskine concerning matters agricultural was such
that, passing a fine field of barley
with the Earl of Leicester one duy,
he threw up his hands with the most
rapt admiration and exclaimed, "Good
gracious, what magnificent lavender I"

MRS. ANNIE VAN VORST'S HEART
DISEASE CURED BY DODD'S
KIDNEY PILLS
She found Quick Relief in ths old
reliable Kidney remedy, and advises all her friends to use Dodd's
Kidney Pills.
St. Benedict, Sask. (Special).—Gladness has replaced the anxiety thnt
reigned in the household of Mrs. Annie Vnn Voret of this place. For some
time past Mrs. Vnn Vorst hus suffered
from Kidney Trouble and palpitation
of the henrt, nnd fenrs were entertained of those terribly sudden fatalities thnt so frequently accompany affections of the heart. But relief from
both ailments was quickly found in
the old reliable remedy, Dodd's Kidney Pills. In an interview Mrs. Van
Vorst says:
"1 had palpitation of the heart and
my Kidneys were out of order. I took
one box of Dodd's Kidney Pills, and
found great relief. For n Kidney pill
Dodd's Kidney Pills cannot be beat.
You mny publish whnt I sny as it

Pure blood is the basis of all health
nnd you can't have pure blood unless
your Kidneys are in good working order. Dodd's Kidney Pills never fait
to put the Kidneys in perfect working
order.

All Hope Gone
This most persistent lover semed to
muke no progress whatever with the
object of his affection; she gave him
no apparent encouragement. Finally
he said: *
"My dear Gertrude, can you give
me no hope—none whatever?"
"No, my dear boy, I cannot; not
one speck of hope—for I am going to
marry you."
As William bent over her fair face
he whispered, "Darling, if I should
ask you in French if I might kiss you
what would you answer?" she, summoning up her scanty knowledge of
the French language, exlaimed
"Billet doux."
The Pale Poet and the President
A pale poet who wrote pale poetry
was taken to the White House one
dny and presented to President Roosevelt by a friend. The friend and the
President had occasion to go downstairs, followed by the pale poet, who
lagged a few steps behind.
"I don't like that man's poetry,"
said the President.     "It is anaemic."
When the President left, the poet
turned to his friend and said, "Did I
understand the President to refer to
my poetry as anaemic?"
"Anaemic?" said the friend. "Oh,
no!" And then, working his wits
overtime, he added: "You misunderstood.   He said it was academic."

POULTRY    •
Do not let the hens get too fat or
too thin, but keep them in medium
flesh.
Plenty of grain food is necessity
for the production of fertile eggs that
will botch strong chickens.
The early hatched cockerel is the
one that brings the highest price in
tlie market next spring.
If you are going to buy nn incubator, do not delay, but order it now
so that you may be sure to bave it
when you need it.
Exercise obtained by scratching in
deep clean litter of grain, with the
poultry house windows open, is 11
great aid to good health, and good
health means more profit.
It never pays to keep old bens nnd
nutlets in the same pen for the older
birds will frequently get too fat on
the amount of food tliat is required
to keep the younger ones in good
condition.
Hens will lay without a male in
the flock und the eggs will keep
better.
Tbe fowl will stand considerable
cold if the air is dry nnd pure.
Damp foul air is sure to cause
trouble.
Get a can of liquid lice killer and
pnint the roost and roost supports
occasionally to protect the fowls
against the little mites that accumulate in thnt pnrt of the hen house.
To get eggs you must feed enough
to maintain the henlth nnd strength
of the hens, nnd enough more than
that to form a surplus out of which
eggs can be made.
Do not get the ducks too fat during
the winter or they will not lay well
in the spring. Examine them occasionally to make sure that they are in
fair flesh.
Table scraps, potato peelings, and
all pieces of ment and vegetables that
accumulate in the kitchen, should be
boiled together and mixed with meal
and brnn to form a noon day lunch
for the fowls in winter.
A Consumption Cure
Milk strippings when taken from a
healthy cow that gives very rich milk
and taken in quantities of a quart
twice a day Immediately nfter milking before it cools nny, will cure a
larger per cent, of cases of consumption than any other treatment and
will cure in half the time of a"ny
other method. It will also prevent it
when taken in time. The reason why
it is so successful is becnuse it is absorbed or transfused into the circulation almost immediately without
taxing the digestive organs as other
foods do, and as the strippings or
last quart of the milking from a cow
that gives very rich milk is nearly all
cream the patient will take on fat so
much faster than can be accomplished by nny otlier method that they
soon gain enough strength nnd vitality to overcome the germs causing
consumption.
To get best results one should begin
witli u glass of strappings, and increase gradually; but if there is nny
disgust created for it any time the
quantity should be dropped at once to
one hulf nnd then increase gradually
again. In two or three weeks they can
usually take a quurt in the morning
nnd evening.
It is very important to tnke it
immediately after milking so as not
to allow it to cool below blood beat.
In cold weather it should be milked
into a dish resting in warm water to
prevent it from cooling any.

FRIDA\, MAY 5,   1911
Tiik suggestion made by ll coast
paper, that a strong opposition to
the party in power in this province
be organized, in order that questions of public interest may bo
thoroughly ventilated, is worthy of
the serious consideration of every
man in the province wbo believes
in honest government. The Victoria government, owing to the disorganization of the opposition, is today the most autocratic governing
hody on this continent. It punishes those who oppose it, and rewards its henchmen out of the public treasury. It essays to speak for
the public through a press subsidized with the people's money.
Tbere is not a Conservative paper in
the province that does not draw from
two hundred to two thousand dollars' worth of patronage from Victoria yearly. The sycophantic
praise of the premier and his mini-
isters that each paper serves its readers is usually modulated accoiding to
the amount it receives. The Liberal
papers, with the exception of half
a dozen, have been starved to
death. For this, business men in
every community, calling themselves Liberals—and who are always
on deck when there is an olPoe in
the gift of the federal government to
be filled—are partly to blame. Non
support of tbeir party papers by the
Liberals 'has forced many Liberal
publications out of the field, and to
tbis fact is chargeable the one-sided
political anomaly that now prevails in Rritish Columbia. There
are probably as many Liberals in
the province now as there were six
years ago. All that is required to
regain our proper political equilibrium is thorough organization, and
decent encouragement to the men
who are fighting the party's battles.
No i'OMI'I.aints have heen made
recently because the immigration
inspector at this port is nol doing
everything in his power to keep bis
department in the limelight. Suspicions are multiplying in the minds of
many citizens that this oflice will
soon become paramount to the Ottawa government. „

The attention of The Sun has
been called to the fact that our local
contemporary last week went to the
trouble of denying tbe authenticity
of the article published in this paper
two weeks recording the bonding nf
the McKinley mine by the British
Columbia Copper company. This
is about as close as our local contemporary ever gets to live truth.
Later developments have shown
tbat The Sun was right, and when
the other papers in the Boundary
eliminate thc Inaccuracies from their
reports tbey will lind that the terms
und conditions of the bond are as
lirst stuled in The Sun. It was to
be expected that it would lake our
contemporary a month to get onto
the fact that the property had bean
bonded, It is not its policy to print
news regarding the development of
the district unless there is something in it for the paper. It is more
profitable to toady to the city council. By so doing it obtains all the
city'B printing at fancy prices. But
there are no defensible reasons why
it should have attempted to discredit
an authentic article in this paper.
Common'decency should have kept
it frnm taking such a course. As we
stated on a previous occasion, thc
Gazette has in  the past—excepting
ENGLAND proposes to negotiate an
international peace treaty with the
United States. This will ultimately
lead to the annexation of Great
Britain by the United States. In
any event, if the treaty is ratified,
the least tbat can be said of itis,
that England is disloyal to  Canada.
On Monday the finance committee of the United States senate,
which has before it the reciprocity
agreement, took up that measure and
discussed plans for the hearings on
it. The members ot the committee
are disposed to give a good amount
of time to those who desire to oppose or advocate the agreement before it is reported to the open senate.

NEWS OF THE CITY
T. Alfred Love (a truly lovable
name), late editor and proprietor
of the Phoenix Pioneer, has retreated to the east. Mr. Love came
here a couple of yeara ago with the
impetuosity of a blizzard from the
prairies, with the avowed intention
of showing the natives of the Boundary how to conduct a newgpaper.
The finis is natural.
During the windstorm this afternoon a portion of Mr. Pare's ranch
was blown up into the river.
J. C. Caie, of Republic, is in the
city today.
If every drop of rain is worth a
dollar, as they say in the Palouse,
Kettle valley ranchers are now millionaires.
A couple of so-called labor leaders
in Phoenix, who were skirmishing
for meal tickets a few weeks ago,
have now risen to so high a stage of
prosperity that they feel warranted
in meddling with affairs in this city.

The barbaric arbitration of war always looms in its hideousness as the
court of last resort in the issues between nations. The force that must
stand behind all law has seemed lacking in schemes for international arbitration. The Ean who loses before a
civil tribunal does not yield because
he regards the decision just. He
probably regards it as unjust. But
he knows that the whole force uf the
nations stands behind the decision
and can ke employed if necessary to
carry it out. This force has seemed
lacking when contemplating the possibility of a powerful nation refusing to
submit an issue to an arbitration tribunal or to accept a decision rendered,
The hope of peace lies in the growth
of higher sentiments that will crystallize to au international opinion.
This may lead toau organization that
will enforce decrees amongst its individual members. Even more important than any such practical, work of
organization is the growth of a spirit
of peace and good-will, a mutual understanding and appreciation through
which the barbarities of older and
lower ideals will be seen in all their
repulsiveness. The nations are growing to recognize each other as friends,
and the pride of strength and armament is giving place to pride in leadership toward conditions m whioh war
will be impossible.—Toronto Globe.
Where a legislature is composed almost wholly of one party, as it is to
day in British Columbia, the tendency
is inevitably against the public interest
Proofs multify daily that almost the
entire adtnistration of oovernment in
this province is nothing more nor less
than a huge vote making machine for
the party in power. We have evidences of this fact thrust upon us on
all hands. Road appropriations, con'
tracts, the administration of the
liquor law, inspectorships under the
laws, appointmehts of all kinds, the
administration of public ollices are all
being used as bolsters of the party.
There are, besides these, suspicions of
a more sinister nature. Stories of
graft are rife and growing in number.
Coercion of the recalcitrants is com
mon. The condition into whicli the
administration of public alt'airs in this
province is drifting culls loudly for a
well organized opposition, not only in
but out of the legislature. Tho need
of such organization is urgent. Pub
lie discussion must be forced. All
matters of legislation and public
poilcy should be thoroughly ventilated
to the public if it cannot be done in
the legislature. As it is a physical
impossibility for one man to do that,
it is important that such a party organization should be effected that
would make discussion possible The
only dunce for such a purty organization lies in the Liberal party.—Saturday Sunset.
measure, the border states especially
will profit from freer exchange of
products with Canada. To them the
absurdity of making an imaginary
line a bar to the business of buyina
and selling between neighbors should
be apparent. Reciprocity will prove
of such benefit to the two countries
that it *ill no doubt speedily lead to
free trade and do away with customs
officers along the international boundary line and the red tape pertaining
thereto.—Orient Journal
The proposal of the Colonist "that
Mr. McBride shall be asked to express to his majesty in some proper
way the feelings of loyalty to the
crown and the attachment to the British empire that nre so deep rooted in
the hearts of the people of this western frontier," looks like a piece of
cheap advojtising or silly snobbery, or
an attempt on the part of his toadies
to get Promier McBride into the circle of the royal gaze. If every group
of 350,000 British subjects were to
send a representative to tell the king
in some "proper way" how loyal they
were and how devoted they were to
the British empire the poor king
wouldn't have time tu attend his own
coronation. Is British Columbia's
loyalty in doubt that we must protest
it? Or are we so much more loyal
than any other section of the empire
that we must needs charge Premier
McBride to tell the king about it?
Boasting about our loyalty is somewhat akin to advertising the virtue of
our women. It is this constant re
iteration of loyalty that makes some
Canadians look like toadies and tuft
hunters, and fur that matter those
who piotest overmuch are little else
The loyalty of a people to tho chief
emblem of government, which in our
case is the institution of the throne, is
best expressed in court records and
police statistics. Obedience to the
law is the first and best expression of
the loyalty of a free people to its institutions. Lip loyalty is cheap and
only affords an opportunity for those
with brazen throats to be heard.—

An Unusual Circulation
There lives an editor in interior
Pennsylvania, Jim Sweeney by name,
who has a keen sense of humor. Seeking to increase his fortune, Sweeney
once wrote to a prospective advertiser,
setting forth in attractive fashion the
va ue of his paper as a medium of
publicity. The advertiser was captivated by Sweeney's letter, but, desirous of more specific assurance before he invested his money, he wrote
to Sweeney, saying he hadn't heard of
the Truinptown Sentinel. "Where
does it circulate!" he asked. And iu
his illuminating way, Sweeney wrote
back: J'The Truinptown Sentinel circulates in Europe, Asia, Africa,Ninth

Why DoGhildrenLike Zam-Buk
A Chat with Mothers
"Whenever my children have any
sore places, cuts, or skin troubles,
Ihey ask (or Znm-Buk. They can al-
wnys depend upon it doing what is
needed."
So says Mrs. A. Alee, of 170 Chatham Street, Montreal.
A missionary, writing from the
West Coast of Africa, snys: "One
boy who was treated for a bad case of
ulcer, came back recently and said,
'I like best that green medicine.'
The 'green medicine' was Zam-Buk."
Now why should children, all the
world over, show such a marked preference for Znm-Buk?
Children like Zam-Buk because, as
soon as applied to a burn, a cut, or n
sore, it stops the pain and then gradually, but surely, it heals. As soon
as the pain of a wound ur sore is relieved a child can go on with its play
and leave Zam-Buk to finish off the
healing.
Mothers might look a little more
deeply into tiie action of Zam-Buk
First, it is highly antiseptic. As soon
as applied it stops all danger of festering, blood-poisoning, and inflammation. Second, it is soothing. It
cools the wound or sore; allays the
irritation; stops thc pain and smarting. Then, thirdly, it stimulates the
cells, beneath the injured part, to
halthy action, nnd causes the speedy
creation of new, healthy tissue.
Oust try Zam-Buk for cuts or burns
or cold sores, or ec?,ema, ulcers, rashes, bnd leg, piles, vnricose ulcers, or
any inflamed or diseased condition
of the skin. Its effect will highly
satisfy you. All druggists and stores
50c. box, or free from Znm-Buk Co.,
Toronto, for price. Refuse harmful
imitations and cheap, worthless substitutes.
He was a newspaper publisher .and
lay ill. The doctor came, put his ear
to his throat and said;
"All that troubles you, my dear sir,

"Circulation bnd, Doctor?" shrieked the man as he shot upright in his
bed. "Why, man, we have the largest
circulntion in the Stnte!"
Grasping tt the Shadow
Many a mnn hns frequently been
persunded or tempted to withdraw
from a savings bank the hnrd enrned
savings which he has, perhaps, for
years been laying aside to keep him
in his old age, sometimes by a friend
who applies to him for a temporary
loan—"just for a few weeks," the inducement to part with his money being the offer of a handsome bonus,
but more frequently is he the victim
of the silver tongued exponent of
some get-rieh-quick scheme. Experience teaches, however, that too often
i does tlie borrower fail in his probably
] good intentions, and the lender loses
the amount lent, nnd' thut in 09 times
out of a hundred does the get-rich-
quick scheme fail to materialize—in
grasping at the shadow we lose the
substance. The Canadian Government
Annuities Act protects a man against
improvident acts and injudicious investments—it safeguards him against
himself. Moneys paid into the Annuities {nuil cannot be alienated or
used for any other purpose, but must
remain int.ict for the object for which
the payments have beeu made, otherwise the end aimed at would never
ns has heen illustrated above, be attained, and old age would overtake us
unprovided for its many trials and
tribulations.
Further information on the subject
may be obtained by applying to the
Postmaster, or direct to the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa, to
whom all letters go free of postage.

SPRING REMINDERS
OF RHEUMATISM
RAW,  DAMP    WEATHER    STARTS
THE PAIN, BUT THE TROUBLE
LIES IN THE BLOOD.
Spring weather is bad for rheumatic
sufferers. The changes from mild to
severe weather, cold, raw, damp winds
following mildness start the aches and
twinges, or in more extreme cases, the
tortures of the trouble going. But it
must be borne in mind that it is not
the weather that causes rheumatism,
the trouble is rooted in the blood—the
changeable weather merely sturts the
pains. The only wuy to reach the
trouble and to cure it is through the
blood. The poisonous rheumatic acids
must be thrown off and driven out.
This is n solemn medical truth every
rheumatic sufferer should realize.
Liniments and outward application
may give temporary relief but they
never did and never can cure rheumatism. Any doctor will tell you this is
true. The sufferer is only wasting
time and money with this sort of
treutment, and all the time the trouble is becoming more firmly rooted—
and harder to cure. There is just one
sure, speedy cure for rheumatism—
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. They net
directly on the weak, impure and
tainted blood. They purify and
strengthen it and thus root out the
cause of rheumatism. Here is a bit
of proof out of thousands of similar
cases that might he given. Mrs. F.
X. Boisseau, St. .Terome, Que., says:
—"For almost two years I was a terrible sufferer from rheumatism. The
trouble first located in the right leg,
making work about the house impossible, and walking very difficult. I
tried to cure myself by means of nil
sol's of liniments and lotions, but
with no result—it was only money
wasted. The trouble constantly grew
worse and the pains more unbearable.
Finally it attacked the other leg, and
I wns nil but helpless nnd completely
discournged, thinking I would be u
sufferer for the rest of my life. At
this time I rend in our home paper of
the trouble being cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills anil 1 decided to try
them. After using the pills for several weeks I could see thnt they were
helping me, and I continued taking
them until I had used nine or ten
boxes when every symptom of the
walk as well as ever I did. Had I
known of Dr. Willinms' Pink Pills
earlier I would have saved myself
much suffering and much money
spent in otlier useless treatment as
well."
Whether you are ailing or not a few
boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will
increase your vitality nnd give you increased strength to withstand the torrid summer weather coming, when
even thc strongest {eel easily iagged
out. You can get these pills from
any denier in medicines or by meil at
50 cents a box or six boxes for $2 50
from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,

"WELL, I'M WELLINGT0NED1"
Some Marvellous Handt That Playert
Have Held at Cardt.
Card-players sometimes get some
miraculous "hands."
Tn 1901, four passengers on board
the South African liner Greek were
playing ordinary whist after dinner
in the evening.
A. held all the thirteen hearts. B.
all the diamonds, C. all the clubs,
and D. all the spades. The odds
against such a thing happening have
been said to be aa many as 158,753,-
389.899 to I.
One of the most surprising calls on
record at -solo-whist was made in s
game between five gentlemen at
Twickenham, where each man stood
nut in turn. On the cards being shut-
fled, cut, and dealt, with hearts as
trumps, the caller went "Solo." The
second player then called "Misere."
The third man was this time standing
out, und so the next, to everybody's
amazement, said he was going "Abundance on diamonds."
"Well, you'll have to go, I suppose," exclaimed the other, "hut
you've done me out of a fine solo!"
"I'm going abundance declare!"
the fourth man chipped in sweetly,
putting his cards down on the table;
for, of course, he had first lead, and
made his own trumps with uuch a
call.
And he put down the nine clubs,
including the top seven, and also the
ace, king, queen, and jack of spades!
Of course, he won his abundance.
A writer to one of the morning
papers last year mentioned two notable experiences within his own
knowledge at local whist-drives at
Busbridge, Godalming. In one case,
a player sat at the same table for fitter hands out.of twenty-four games,
and another was one of the losing
partners for seventeen hands out of
the twpnty-four games.
At Wakefield, in 1892, four friends-
two gentlemen and their wives—ni"t
for a game at ordinary whist. On the
cards being dealt, after several hands
had been played, one of the m"n
found he had no trumps, At the en.-*
of the game this was laughinelv just
mentioned. But he stared when, in
ihe next hand, with different trumps
he again had none! And the company was more surprised at this.
However, when, a third time in succession, the same man found he
hadn't a single trump, he began to
wonder what was the matter.
Some suburbanites, a few years ago.
were playing nap. Owing to the
"kittv" being doubled when a caller
pf "Nap!" lost, it had got to £2 10s..
at midnight. The amount, then, to
be doubled, frightened the three
players, and it was certain that no
one would again call until he had got
an absolute "cert."
So, for two hours, not one "Nap!"
was called. Then, at five minutes li
two o'clock, the players agreed to
divide the "kitty" between them it
the next deal yielded nothing in thui
The cards were dealt as usual. The
caller looked at his five hearts—ace.
king, queen, jack, and eight—and, of
course, he promptly called "Nap!"
"Well, then, I'm going over you!
Napoleon!" said the next man.
When the second player put down
his hand, he had in it five spades—
the ace, king, queen, jack, and eight
—exactly the same value cards as the
man who had called on hearts!
But, what was more extraordinary
still, perhaps, the third man had in
his three diamonds—seven, four, and
deuce—and two clubs—ten and five.
He could have gone "Wellington,"
and beaten the lot I—Answers.
Composer ol "The Better Land."
Dr. F. H. Cowen, the famous musician, whose latest work, "The Veil,"
was heard for the first time in London at the Queen's Hall on Feb. 2!,
was a young man ot twenty-five when
he wrote the music of "The Btt>r
Land." 'It was written in an hour
or two, on the suggestion of the lute
Mme. Antoinette Sterling. Dr. Cowen
was calling one day upon the popular
vocalist, when she read Mrs. Hemans'
poem to him, saying she thought it
would make a beautiful s,ong for her
When the score waa sent to her next
morning, Mme. Sterling liked it s <
much that she offered to buy the copy '
right from the composer—an unusual
course for a singer to take; but to
this, fortunately for hit pocket. Dr.
Cowen would not agree. Dr. Cowen
has a mascot which he would not part
with for untold gold. This is a li tie
pianette which he has had since h<*
was a boy of fourteen, and every
work he has composed has been wri.-
ten with its aid.

it's with an appreciation ot the incident, being at his expense that ho

Mr. Wilkinson was one ot a party

stayed in Killarney, the maid laid

"I don't know," was the answor.
"You don't know?" said the maid.
"My wife is about three thousand

In Search
of Beauty
You Mast First Win Health
by Getting the Blood
Rich and Red
DR. CHASE'S NERVE FOOD
Kvery man and every woman has
an individual idea of what constitutes
beauty.
Is beauty skin deep or does it depend on the glow which health alone
can give? Is it due to regularity of
feature or to thu gracefulness and
elasticity which accompany health
and vigor?
To win beauty you must first gain
health. Rich, red blood is the secret.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is successful
and popular because it forms rich,
red blood and in this way gives gracefulness fo every movement and a
healthful, natural glow to the com*
plexjpn.
Thin blood and weak nerves soon
give one a tired, worn out appearance. Worry and anxiety show themselves in wrinkles and care lines. Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food enriches the
blood, restores vigor to the nerves
and drives away headaches and bodily pains.
By filling the arteries with new, red

A Sartorial Message of Hop* For tha
Woman Who la Economically Inclined—Tha Madam Butterfly Bow
and a Quickly Made Dessert. .
Dear Elsa—You have beard me
■peak often of Grandma 11.. haven't
you? She wasn't, as you kuow, a real
relative, but a dear connection through
love and unfailing sympathy uot only
to me, but to every one of her friends
who needed her counsel and guidance
—and they were many. Yes, she was
"grandma" to every one who knew
her well and loved ber.
This dear old lady, who recently
crossed the bar. Buffered Intensely for
thirty of her allotted threescore and
ten years, but bravely nnd uncomplainingly. There was no suggestion
of the peevish Invalid about her always bright and cheerful personality.
Everything Interested her, the latest
discovery In tbe world of science, the
best books, any little bit of harmless
neighborhood gossip and music—always music filled her soul with unspeakable delight even unto tbe end,
when It soothed her delirious moments.
Like Julia Ward Howe, this dear old
a salad or other edible originated by
a good professional cook, a small water color or painting ln oil, a sample of
an artist's ability—any of these will
make an excellent feature at a sample
■ale.
The samples which a manufacturer
or storekeeper gives away of a new article—tooth powder, stove polish, sewing silk or sny ot the numerous samples afloat in the market—make line
things for tbe sample sale.
I As the sample sale Is a splendid ad
for the makers, there Is seldom an;
trouble In getting goods of this Und
Stationery, Christmas cards, milk, dolls
and other apparently Incongruous ar
tides are good sellers at a sale.
Matched Sets In Fashion.
I must tell yon, too, about the matched sets of bat muff and scarf that are
so much worn this winter. It Is a new
Idea, and ln this age of combinations
there Is great opportunity to make one
set of furs go a long way. 1 have an
old set of skunk furs that 1 am using
In this manner. I purchased a remnant of stunning brocade that is making tbe puffed crown of my turban,
which Is edged witb the fur ond a
iwtat nf the celt surrounding a huge
Jeweled disk.
Now for the muff. On a lining of
muslin I have strips of tbe brocade
between alternate bands of fur, and
at the hand openings are several ruffles of velvet with an inner one of
chiffon. In otber words, bave an up
to dale muff Just about twice as large
as those of last year. The scarf Ih
made long and of rows of fur and brocade like tbe muff. And some small
pieces of the fabric that I had left
over I have made Into the smartest
hand bag on a silk cord to be carried
I over tbe arm. These sets are charming ln their completeness and In the
message of hope tbat tbey bold for
the woman wbo Is economically Inclined.
Another lovely cheap notion for
smartening up an old house gown ts
Ihe Madam Butterfly bow. mude of
tulle., generally black, that stands out
ln wing-like loops at the back of the
waist. It bas long streamers of tulle
that are knotted on tbe ends.
Just have patience with me and let
me add this quick dessert recipe thai
saved my life recently when some |ieo-
ple came in unexpectedly to luncheon
and then I'll stop this rambling letter.
The Dessert.—Put a couple of pieces
of canned peaches or pears on Individual dishes and fill the cavities with
whipped cream: stick on each three
or four blanched almonds, and you
will have something good to set before your guests and be thankful for
the suggestion to MABEL.

strong intellect, who talks right
straight to the point on all public
issues. He is an old Ontario boy,
born at Augusta, Ont., and the son of
a brilliant Irish school master. He is
a Dominion topographical surveyor by'
profession and has lived in the northwest for the past 30 years. He was a
member of the Northwest Legislative
Assemb'.y for two terms and was first
returned to the House of Commons
nt the general elections of 1908. When
the recent reorganisation of the Conservative party took place under Mr.
R. L. Borden Mr. Masrath was selected as one of the ablest ol the Conservative stalwarts in the remodeled
opposition forces and on the Conservative fighting line there is perhaps
no abler man. The old leaders of the
Conservatives have mostly passed
away or retired and their places is
now being filled by a brilliant galaxy

Last Sessions' Record.
Last session ot the Ontsrio Legislature opened on Jan. 26 and was prorogued on Marcli 19. The session a
year ago was marked by five divisions
and the passage of 168 bills. The legislation included the extension to Toronto of power to construct a tube
system of railways, also the right to
construct surface street railway extensions.
The passage by acclamation ot the
Ontario Telephone Act was one of
the notable achievements of the session.
There is every indication that the
session which will open soon will furnish further proof of the progressive
development and public ownership
policy ot the Whitney administration.
! General Told To Go Away.
| Pen. Sir Ian Hamilton, commander- I
\ in-chief in th3 Mediterranean and inspect! r-general of the oversea forces,
has been inspecting the troops in
Cairo. He is o'ften regarded as the
most unlucky soldier in the army,
and certainly the number of times he
has been wounded, to a greater or less
extent, is remarkable.
Sir Ian is not averse to telling a
story against himself. On one occasion he was in the neighborhocd of
Salisbury Plain, and was watching the
evolutions of a battery of regular artillery. He ventured to point out to
the battery commander that he had
n'.lowed his men to get well within
the range of the force of attacking infantry, and he suggested a withdrawal.
"For goodness' sake go away I" was
the impatient retort. "You are the
third of those dasher Terriers who
'ias been round here to-day trying
to teach me my work. What on earth
do you know about gunnery, I should
like to know?" "Not as much as I
should like lo," was the other's reply.
"Let me hand you my card in case
you should have time to instruct me
while you are staying on the Plain."
Gen. Hamilton is, of cours», one
of the most experienced artilleryistt
in the British army.
Many Men, Many Job..
The extraordinary number and variety of occupations pursued in Britain
muy be imagined from the fact that
an Occupation Dictionary, privately
orintod for the census ollieials' use,
"ontained ten years ago as many as
16,000 descriptions of work. This year
the dictionary is to be published fnr
the first time. It is being carefully
revised, and probably at least 2,000 |
occupation names will be added before j
it goes to press.
Office Ornaments.
"Yes, ma'am," commented the office factotum whom long tenure of office had made a bit censorious, "some
of these here young ladies about this
office does precious little work. They
seems to think they's intended lor
office ornaments."
Then, seeing a shade cross the lady
manager's face, he hastened to add,
reassuringly, "But, ma'am, you ain't
no ornament."
Late Windsor Magistrate Wat a Famous Character For Many Yeart.
Windsor, Ont., sustained a great
'oss in the death, a few days ago, of
'Sandy" Bartlett, who for over half
a century was its police magistrate.
In the best sense of the term he was
"boss of the town,'" and wherever he
went in Windsor people never dreamed of questioning his authority, even
though he might be dealing with matters that did not come within the
range of his duties as magistrate.
He brought to bear on his work
cooi, calculating common sense, and
often brushed aside technicalities to
do justice. Many a time lie imposed
a fine ami then promptly paid it out
of his own pocket; he give u great
number of men good advice instead
of a term in jail, and he would never
separate mun and wife if he could arrange a reconciliation.
Newspapermen of Windsor and Detroit well remember "Sandy" and his
advice. Some six or seven years ago,
on one of the occasion when a number of them had remained in police
court after the session of the court,
the venerable magistrate gave advice
to some of them who were smoking.
"You shouldn't smoke," he said. "It's
bad business. I never smoked in my
life." Some of the reporters stuck up
for their smoking, but he said, "No,
it's harmful. Look at Brother William. He's just smoking himse'.f to
denth—smoking himself to death."
The mugistiati! ut that time was
about 81 yean old, and "Brother William" was then about 88.
Mr. Bartlett invariably stood for
British law and order in a town whicli
is subject to "dumpings" of foreign
criminals. He was decidedly severe
on the latter, especially such characters as entered upon matrimonial
adventures, regardless of former ties
in the "States." On one occasion
there was brought before him an enterprising gentleman, who had taken
the ferry from Detroit and settled in
Windsor, with a view to marrying "a
l.idy of means." His ingratiating
manner brought him success in this
undertaking, when it wus discovered
thut more than one wife awaited him
in vain in the "Land of tlie Somewhat Free and the more-or-less
Brave." Life became rather strenuous for the foreign gentleman, who
finally found himself in the police
court under the searching eyes if
Mr.  BarOett.
"May I go back to Detroit?" asked
the gentleman of many marriages.
■ "After   you've   served   a   sentence
here," was the amiable reply.
"This is no free country," objected
the prisoner.
"Not for such as you," said the magistrate, with a grim set of his Scottish
jaws.
"Well," said the dejected one persistently, as he was led away, "I
want to know how soon 1 can get
married after I em out."
But the magistrate was too disgusted at this failure to appreciate the
nature of the marriage vow to make
any reply.
Canadians With Mr.. Eddy.
It will be of interest to Canadians
to know that two of the chief lieutenants of the late Mrs. Mary Bak**r
Eddy und men who helped to mnke
her greut success, are Canadians.
Mr. Archibald McLellan, chui man
of the board, had the confidence of
Mrs. Eddy, who, despite her deeper
interest in spiritual mutters, hud u
knowledge of the world which made
her an excellence judge of men. He
is also tlie editor of the Christian
Science publications issued in Boston.
Mr. McLellan was born in New
Brunswick in 1857 and when a hey
went to Boston. He was adm tied
to the Bar in Chicago. Mr. McLellan became* actively identified with
the Christian Science movement in
1895 and since 1907 he and Gen. H. M.
Baker have been trustees of the property of Mrs. Eddy.
Mr. Adam H. Dickey, private secretary to Mrs. Eddy and a director,
spent most ot his life in Kansas City,
Mo. He was born in Toronto, Out.,
on June 26. 1864, and received his
education in the model schools ol
thut city. In 1881 he went to Kunsa.
City. He was converted to Christian
Science in 1697, retired Irom the
manufacturing company and in I89U
became a Christian Science hea.er.
At that time the Scientists had no
church in Kansas City and Mr. Dickey was influential in building up
the first church of thot faith. Mrs.
Eddy summoned him to Boston three
years ago and offered him tlie place
of private secretary, which he ue. »pt.
ed. Her lust official act was to recommend his appointment to the
board.

ty-fourth anniversary of the capture
of Fort Washington by the British and Hessian soldiers ou Nov
14, 1770, by unveiling a monument
on the site of tbe old redoubt. The
memorial is a big ruck, suitably Inscribed. Fort Washington is sltunted

to prevent tbe slaughter of his men.
An Acoustic Chair.
Long before the telephone was invented tt had occurred to people that
sounds, especially the human voice,
might be carried along a tube. Narrowing sounds, if only for a little distance, keep them from scutterlng
through the air. Even savages many
centuries ago discovered that by putting lhe hands together to Ibe moutb
It was possible to throw tbe voice
farlber. After a time somebody Invented tbe speaking trumpet, especially useful at sea or among mountains,
and the car trumpet, by which tbe
deaf are enabled to listen to the conversation of relatives uud friends.
Kindness to the deaf, wbo are glad
to hear even the chatter of children,
led a Mr. Curtis to contrive wbat be
called an acoustic chair, which he exhibited early In the relgu of Queen
Victoria.
The cbalr was a high barked library
one ami hnd two barrels to fit eacb
eor, but those wbo wished to talk by
its aid hud no need to speak Into
a tube or mouthpiece. Perforated
plates collected the sounds of the room
Into a vase, and from this they were
carried to tbe ears of any one seated
In the chair. Flexible tubes could be
attached to Ihe barrels, communicating
wilh olber rooms In tbe house. Thu*
a deaf man sitting In tbe cbalr could
bear everything that was going on
almost ns well aa If his bearing waa
perfectly good.

tbnt the rat assumes nearly the ssms

or sees the family enter. Now, her
object Is to attract attention, mid with
this end In view she rubs herself
