Tenth Year--No. 45
Qrand Forks, B. C, Friday, September 15. 1911.
$1.00 Per Year in Advance.
At the council meeting  last   Mon I
day night Aid. Atwood, chairman of
tlie finance ,committee,   handed  in I
his resignation, which was accepted.
Mr. Atwood gave the following   reasons for hits action:
Kohert Gaw,   Esq.,  Mav'nr of the
City of Grand Forks, B. C.
Dear Sir—I heg to hand you my
resignation as a niemher of the municipal council of Grand Forks as a
protest to the acceptance hy the
council of the auditor's half-yearly
report, presented hy Mr. Campbell
at the last regular meeting of the
council, thereby confirming him in
the position of city auditor.
There "-are several reasons, in my
opinion, wh'y tfiisjihould' not have
heen done. In , th"* .first place, as
Mr. Campbell hits worked almost
three months since the 1st of Janu
ary in the cily office, any audit he
makes cannot be an audit in the
proper accrptance of the term, and
Mr. Campbell knows tbat as well as
I do. Again it was a piece of sharp
practise on Mr. Campbell's part presenting this report at all after my
having said ai the previous council
meeting , in, his presence, "that as
Mr. Campbell had heen acting as
city clerk for a good pffrt of the year,
he of course could not do the auditing, and that I thought we should
get a chartered accountant from
Vancouver." This, after some dis
' cussion, in which I thought the
members of the council agreed with
me, was laid over for the present.
Now, if Mr. Campbell thought he
had a right to do the auditing, the
manly course was for him to have
said so right then. He must have
known, when be accepted regular
work in the cily ofliee,that he could
nol possibly audit his own work,
and if the city accept and pay him
for an audit, or part of an audit,
they merely throw away the citizens' money and hoodwink them
into thinking that the books have
been audited properly, when the
audit, as an audit, is not worth the
paper it is written upon, and I do
not believe any judge in British Co
lumbia would allow Mr. Campbell's
claim when acquainted with the
facts of the case.
You will remember that when
Mr. Hay was taking over the city
office, and would consequently be
responsible thereafter for everything
that was done in it, he said: "There
is one tiling I want to ask about—
that is, this rebating. .Some seem to
get it, and some do not, and I want
soiiie definite instructions in regard
1. He cannot audit his own work.
It is not an audit.
■1. That the city will not be acting in good faith towards the citizens il they employ him to audit
the hooks. Many will nittuially >
think that they are getting what
they are paying for, when they are
.'!. That Mr. Campbell is trying
sharp to get a little more work out
of the city.
4. That I want a proper audit
made by a thoroughly competent
man, one who is conversant with
municipal offices and able to reorganize our city office on an up to-
date system, and to do away with
our antiquated one. I want him not
only to check off the entries, but to
check off thc work and see who has
heen giving these rebates Mr. Hay
1 want to know more about this
rebating, and if it has been done
without authorijy, I want to see the
amount made good to the city.
Under the circumstances I think I
have every reason lo fi el surprised
at  not  receiving any support from
.1. I). Honsberger will commenced
to pick and ship his prune crop next
Monday, and expects to finish the
work in ahout a week. He estimates the crop this year at five carloads of between 800 and 900 crates
to the car. This 8-acre orcharal is
paying a net profit of about if300
per acre yearly.

Clinton A. S. Atwood.
Mike Michaelson, who was a resident of Qrand Forks five years ago,
returned to the city this wea k. lie
has spa nl most of his tune in Arizona since lie left here, during tl e
past year he has visi ed England,
.Scotland and a number of the Conti
neutal countries. In Russia,he says,
he travelled far enough north lo see

again one hour later He came to
this city direct from the old couniry.
Clear Out Issue
If ever there was an election in
Canada iu which the Privileged Few
stoou on one side and the Unprfvi
leged Many on the other, surely this
is that ons. Thi-|inen who form the
backbone of the anti-reciprocity
forces are the packers with their 50
per cent divinends; the malsters
who have been buying Canadian
Oarley at an average of 19c below
Buffalo prices, and financiers and
promoters who have become millionaires by the floating of mergers
whicb tbe present system renders
possible. On the other side is the
great mass of unorganized farmers
wbo are asking simply that they be
allowed to sell curtain of their products in what but for an artificial
barrier, to be removed under reciprocity, would be for them the
highest market in the world. Surely,
with the issue so plain, with tlie
reason for the opposition su manifest, no farmer can doubt ou which
side his ballot should be cast.—The

DeB. Far-is, tha- onlv speaker, held
the attention of audience for two
and one half hours.
Mr. Farris is an eloquent orator,
ami his arguments iu favor of reciprocity were so clearly anil forcefully
set forth that they Could not help

pcued that day at St. Jerome is happening every day throughout Que
bee. This i.s indeed quite the most
significant of all tbe inci'lents of
this campaign. A baud of young
French Canadians, every one of
lliein a traitor to Brilish ideals, led
l.y a clever but reckless political
aspirant, are encourged to gather
uniler an alien flag, and to enllame
their compatriots wifh the hope of
political "indep. ndeiice," "an autonomous French state," "independent and unmixed," on the banks
ol the St. Lawrence.
And what is most compromising
and most heinous of all is lhat the
leader of thc Conservative party in
Canada has abandoned almost the
whole province of Quebec to these
anti-British demagogues and traitors.
Were it possible that Mr. Borden
should carry a majority of seats in

The powerful car sped over the
roads heedless of police traps or other
troubles of that kind, and some time
hefore the appointed hour for the arrival of Blossett's train ill l/Oiulon
they had reached Victoria. It was an
easy matter to store the car in a
neighboring hotel, and presently they
had the satisfaction of seeing Blossett
swagger from a first-class carriage
with a heavy Gladstone hag in his
hand. He called a cab and was rapidly driven off in the direction of the
city. Egan in his turn called another
cab, giving the driver strict injunc-
tiiis to keep the first vehicle in
sight. It was a long chase, but it
came to an end presently outside an
office in Walbrook. He paused at
length in front of a door marked
"Private," and also placarded the information that here was the business
place of one Druinniond, commission
agent. .Scarcely hail the door closed
on Blossett than Egan followed without ceremony. He motioned the other
two to remain behind; he had some
glib story to tell the solitary clerk
in the outer office, from whom he
gleaned the information that Mr.
Drummond was engaged on some par-
tiular business and could not see him
for some time.
"Very well," he said; "I'll wait and
read the paper."
He sat there patiently for some five
minutes, his quick ears strained to
catch the faintest sound of what was
taking place in the inner office. There
came presently the click of metal,
whereupon the watched whistled gently and his comrade and Venner entered the room. Wry cooly Egan crossed over and locked the door.
. "Now, my young friend," he said to
the astonished clerk, "you will oblige
me by not making a single sound.
I don't suppose for a moment you
have had anytihng to do with this;
in fact, from your bewildered expression, I am certain that you haven't.
Now tell me how long have you been
in your present situation."
"About three months." the clerk replied. "If you gentlemen happen to
be police officers "
"That is exactly what we are,"
Grady smiled. "Do you find business
brisk—plenty of clients about?"
The clerk shook his head. He was
understood to say that business was
inclined to be slack. He was so
frightened and uneasy that it was
somewhat difficult to discern what he
was talking about. From time to
time there came sound of tinkling
metal from the inner office. Then
Grady crossed the door and opened
the door. He stepped inside nimbly,
there was a sudden cry, and then the
voice of the detective broke out
"Now drop it." he said. "Keep
your hands out of your pocket—there
are three of ais here altogether, and
the more fuss you make the worse
it will be for you. You know perfectly well who I am. Blossett; and we
are old friends, too Mr. Drummond,
though I don't know you by that
name.   You will come with me "
But what's the charge?" Blossett
blustered. "I am doing business
with my friend here quite in a legitimate way."
"Counterfeit coining," Grady said,
crisply. "Oh, we know all about it,
so you need not try to bluff it out
ill that way. I'll call a cab, and we
can drive off comfortably to Bow
All the swaggering impudence vanished from Blossett. As to his companion, he hud not saial a word from
start to finish. It was about an
hour later that Venner anal his companions were sealed at lunch at a
hotel at Covenl Garden, and Venner
was now impatiently waiting to hear
what was the charge which had laid
Blossett and his companion by the
heels. Grady smiled as he drew from
his pocket what appeared to be a
brand  new  sovereign.
"This is it," he said. "A counterfeit. You wouldn't think to look at
it. would you? It appears to he perfectly genuine. If you will balance
it on Viiiir linger you will find that it
is perfect weight, and as to the finish
it leaves nothing to be desired. And
yet that coin is false, though it contains as much gold as any coin that
you have in your purse."
"Now I begin to understand." Venner exclaimed. "I have already
told you all about my discovery at
the Empire hotel, also what happened
quite recently at Merton Grange. I
could not for the life of me understand what those fellows had to gain
by making sovereigns red hot. Of
course, I took them to be real sever-
eirns "
"Well, so thev are nracticallv."
Egan said. "They contain absolutely
as much gold as an English coin of
eounl value. They are made from the
metal Fcm'-ick managed to loot from
lb« Four Finger. Mine."
"What, do you know all ahout
lhal?" Venner cried.
"We know all about everything,"
Grady said gravely. "We have been
tracking Fenwick for yeafs, and it is
a terrible indictment wc shall have to
lay against him when the proper
time comes. We shall prove beyond
the shadow of a doubt that he was one
of the murderers of Mr. George Le
Fenu—but we need not go into that
| now, for I see that you are anxious
I to know all about the trick of the sov-
I ereigns. After Fenwick was compelled to abandon the Four Finger
Mine, /he found himself with a great
deal less gold than he had expected.
Then he hit upon the ingenious
scheme which we are here to expose.
His plan was to make sovereigns and
half-sovereigns, and put them on the
market as genuine coins. Now do
you see what he had to gain hy this
ingenious programme?"

Tomahawk and Rifle  Picked Up  In
North Find Place In Museum.
A rifle and tomahawk which are being presented to the Ontario Government, have an interesting story attached which is related in a letter
to au oflicial ol the T. & N. 0. Railway,.on whose right-of-way the weapons were discovered. Says the writer, another official:
"Itelat -e to the curios which I gave
you on your recent crip over the Porcupine branch, namely the remains
ol an old Queen Mines rifle, and an
ancient Indian tomahawk, found at
where our ballast pit and camp Mo. 3
are situated, wouid say that I have
gathered the following information:
"On the west shore of Frederick-
house Lake there still remains a family of Indians named 'Buffalo,' the
only survivors from the old Hudson
Bay fort, which was once located
where camp No. 3 now stand... The
history ol this fort, as handed down
from generation to generations in their
own crude manner, comes from this
Indian family.
"Frederick Barber, a Hudson Bay
factor, whom Frederickhouse Lake
and Barber's Bay are called after,
had his post or fort as above mentioned. He lived there for years surrounded by a small colony of Indians, who brought their furs to this
post, and in return got all their supplies lor their hunting season. Bar-
ber became progressive as far as getting fur is concerned, and consequent
ly the Indians were living fairly well
The Indians got good prices fur their
furs and encouragement brought them
far east and west on hunting ground.
It seems that they encroached on
the hunting ground of the Abitibi Indiana, and in the spring following
the year of the big fire, the Abitibi
Indians in force crossed over on snow-
shoes to Frederickhouse Lake and by
surprise, with jealously foremost in
their minds, a thirst for blood, killed
Frederick Barber and all the Indians
possible. The 'Buffalo' family are the
only ones who survived.
"The date of this war, or fight. i«
not known in this country, except that
it was the spring following the big
fire. These poor ignorant Indians do
not know what dates are, and time
their dates Irom some memorable
event, which possibly played havoc
with  them or their families.
"The Queen Anne rifle and tomahawk were lound on the rhore jttst
above the water line. You will note
the extreme length of the barrel of tbe
gun. Imagine the length of this gun
when full'length wilh the stock. History tells us that such guns were given to the Indian!, when they brought
in to the Hudson Bay posts enough
beaver fur, which when piled up on
the floor, would reach as high as one
of these guns."

How    The    Prima    Donna    Travels,
Fortune from Singing.
Mme. Nordica, the famous American
prima donna, who hus just been
singing at the Berlin Koyal Opera at
tlie special request of tue Uerman
i-mpi-ror, enjoys tne distinction, apart
from ner artistic achievements, of being the greatest woman wage-earner
in the world. One one occasion she
received 114,000 for a concert of an
hour's duration at Washington, ]_).
(J., but it is not the single amounts
on special occasions as continuous
and systematic earnings of unusual
dimensions that enableu her to amass
un immense fortune at a comparatively early age. Mme. Nordica works for
twenty-eight weeks in each year and
iluung that period from October till
April she gives an average of three
concerts a week. Ninety concerts in
twenty-eight weeks is a tremendous
strain on the voice, and the general
physical endurance of the singer, and
Mme. Nordica travels with every
conceivabe luxury to fortify herself
against the hardships of life on tour.
From beginning to end of her seven
mouths trip she travels and lives in
her private car which has been
specially arranged for her and is a
veritable little palace on wheels. The
car contains a fairly large music room
where Madame can practice daily, a
charming little salon, three bedrooms, besides bathroom, kitehen and
servants' quarters. Mme. Nordica's
suite on tour consists of a lady companion, a secretary, an accompanist,
her.own veteran cook, who is a past
master of his art, two men servants
and two maids. When she arrives at
the city where a concert is to be given, her car is shunted to a siding and
there she lives until the time comes
for the continuation of her journey
to the next city.
In her intervals of idleness, Mme.
Nordica has three beautiful homes
in America at her disposal; a large
country house at Ardsley, on the
Hudson River, a bungalow of enormous dimensions at Deal Beach, on
Long Island, and a picturesque little
farmhouse at Martha's Vineyard in
Maine, which has become a kind of
Nordica museum,   since   it   contains
the greater part of the year in the
strenuous occupation of giving concerts several times a week?
To such inquiries Mme. Nordica
responds that art is to every artist
the breath of life. It is not the greed
of gold, not the love of applause, not
the craving for publicity, but just a
passionate devotion fo her art that
chains her to the stage and concert
platform when she might be enjoying
well-earned repose in one of her country homes. The prima donna is in
warm sympathy with the feminist
movement, and joins in the demand
for women's suffrage. At an early
age of her operatic career, Mine. Nordica enjoyed the exceptional privilege of studying her Wagnerian roles
under the personal tuition of Frau
Cosimn Wagner, the widow of the
composer, whom she visited for this
purpose at Bayreuth. Frau Cosima
Wagner knows every note of her husband's musical masterpieces, and remembers every single gesture and
movement required in acting the
different parts on the stage, so that
she was an ideal teacher for Mme.
Nordica, who acknowledges with gratitude that she owes much of the
success achieved as "Elsa" and "Isolde" to her careful instructions. A
warm friendship still exists between
Frau Wagner, now a confirmed invalid, and the American prima donna

the purpose of providing a refuge for

her old pet animals. This humane
establishment stands in grounds covering fourteen acres, and here the old

days in luxurious comfort, tended

Worn Out by the Monotonous Indoor
Life of Winter
How to Supply the Pressing Needs of i
the Growing Western Country
Winnipeg.—As the summer progresses and the wheat growth of the West
advances towards maturity tliere
comes this year, as tliere comes most
years, an appeal for help in the harvest fields: and the probability is that
even though Eastern Canada may
semi out thousands of men and boys
to aid in the garnering of the gram, j
the West will, Oliver Twist-like, ask1
for more.
This problem of how to supply the 1
pressing needs of a new and rapidly !
growing country for a few weeks (lie-
oause that is all that the invitation!
really means to Easterners) ia one ofi
these which can only be solved by co-
operation and looking ahead. It is 1
true that the Government, through its j
immigration department is advertising
in thousands of newspapers throughout Great Britain and the United
States that "the harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few," and
that some relief can be gained in that
way; but the result would undoubtedly be much better if more dependence was to be had upon individual
Take the case of a man who goes to
the Canadian West from old Canada
or from any of the Western or Central States or from    Greut    Britain.
He is a very unusual man, indeed, if
he does   not   "take up   his pen   in
hand," at some period of his pioneering and write home to complain either
of his loneliness or of the weather or,
of tlie gophers or of the snow or of a
the heat, or of any dozen other diffi-|
culties which pioneers have to over-,
come.   He does   so, as a matter   of
course, not with any desire to 'knock' I
tiie new country,   but   animated   by j
that human sentiment   whicli   seeks 1
comfort in trouble   and,    failing   to
find it in a new locality, looks for itl
in the old home. j
But when that same man has made)
good, how often does he write home
to tell of his fortune? The habit of
writing home is much like the habit
of taking the local newspaper from
home; it lasts a year or two or three,
and then it is dropped, because of the
new environment crowding out interest in the old. How much better both
for himself and the country would it
be for such a man to write home, tell
the old folks at home of his good fortune and ask them to send a brother,
a cousin or even only an old schoolmate to help him gather the crops?
That would be a practical individual way of solving the harvest
problem, partially at least; it would
he good advertising for the West, because we all know that tliere i.s no ml,
vertisenient so good as a satisfied set-
tier; and it would create a new bond
of interest between tlie man in the
West and those left behind at home.
And the most attractive feature of
the suggestion (which comes from W.
D. Scott, the head of the immigration
branch) is tliat it is just the sort of
thing which will appeal to the sentiment of tlie westerner and is at tlie
time reasonable in cost.

Before another issue of Thk
.Sin Canada's battle for larger
markets will have been won.
We feel certain that the government will be victorious on
Thursday next, and Sir Wilfrid Laurier's majority in the
next parliament will not fall
below oO. Without resorting
to hysteria* we have endeavored to'give our readers as
clear a conception of the issues involved in the campaign
as possible. Realizing that
the views of a single person are
not always infallible, we have
quoted freely the logic of the
best writers, and the most eminent statesmen, at home and
abroad, to prove our contention that the approval of the
reciprocal trade agreement
with the United States is a
step in the direction of progress, and that our future prosperity hinges on a lower taxation of the every-day necessaries of life. We have tried
to show that the agreement-
will injure no industry, not
even the fruit grower, and
that it will prove beneficial to
the wage earners, the farmers
and the consumers generally.
Of the return of the Laurier
government there is not the
slightest doubt; but we naturally wish to see British Columbia once more in the Liberal column. This is not an
impossible task'. It can be
accomplished if all Liberal
in the province do their duty
between now and election day.
Up to the present time
there has not been a single
Tory meeting in this city, and
the indications are that the
only one during the campaign
will be held on the night of
the 20th. This is an ominous
sign. It probably means
that all sorts of roofbaohs and
fake telegrams will be sprung
on the audience on that occasion. None of them should be
given credance without the
fullest investigation. In the
Tory   party   in  thi
Tiik only veteran of the
Boer war in (Irand Forks will
vote for reciprocity next
Tiik citizens of Grand
should enter a vigorous
against the people who are
ing" the district by assiduously circulating the report that the
Kettle valley cannot compete with
Wenatehee anil other Iruit growing
districts in Washington and Oregon
in the production of first class fruit.
This is the worst form of "knock
ing," because it has a tendency to
depreciate land values and tn retard
tbe development of the district. If
th* people guilty of this folly cannot confine themselves to facts, the
sooner they leave the community
the better it will be fur those
here who are endeavoring to expand
the fruit growing industry. It is a
well known fact thai Grand Forks
fruit has carried off first honors in
open competition with fruit from
th* above districts at numerous exhibitions. This should be sufficient
to settle the quality of tbe product
of our orchards.
E. Miller, M.I'.P., is doing a
gaiod deal of ranting on the streets
concerning the statement Tbe Sun
made last week to the effect that J.
D. Honsberger bad sold apples in
Spokane at $1.75 a box. The Sun
bas been informed that Mr. Miller
characterizes this statement as a deliberate falsehood on the part of this
paper. We hnve no space this week
to waste on Mr Miller. We content ourselves by saying that tbe accuracy of the statement is vouched
for by three of the best fruit grower?
in the valley.
of the election, in the hope that wild
statements and fake' telegrams will
pass unchallenged.
A. fi. Tweddle is a Kettle valley
fruit grower who opposes the pact.
Mr. Tweddle's father is a large fruit
grower in Ontario. For years Mr.
Tweddle senior disposed of his crop
by running a stall in the New Vork
city market. Would not Mr. Tweddle senior have profited by reciprocity to the extend of 2d cents a
Fok  tbe year ending June 30th,
1910, the gross trade between Canada and tbe United States was $310,-
U00,0(J(). Between Great Britain and
the United States, $750,000,000 and
witb Germany #420,000,000 Great
Brituin and Germany are evidently
in imminent danger of being a-n-
n-e-x-e-d to the United States!
When the Conservatives make
promises next Wednesday night,
ask them if the Kettle Valley line
has reached Franklin camp, and if
the bridge across the Kettle river at
First Btreet is completed.
Political lias are now I sin,' hatched
with astonishing frequency. The
latest is to thu effect that the construction of the piistnllice is merely
a campaign dodge, and that work
will stop alter the election. The
Tories should know better; one of
them witnessed Ihe signing of the
contract, and he knows that if thu
building is nut completed in eighteen
months the contractor will have to
pay a penalty of $5000.

By tbe law of the land no vessel
carrying flfty or more persona, Including passengers and crew, may leave
any port in the United States on a
voyage of more ttiuu _.*uo miles after
July 1 unless It Is equipped wltb wireless telegraph apparatus capable of
transmitting and receiving messages
over a distance of at least 100 miles,
day or nlgbt. In cburge uf a competent
Eveu without tbe strong encouragement of Ibe law, without uuy Influence whatever beyond the cold logic
of achievement, tbe world's installation of wireless telegraph apparatus
bad grown to a grand total of 1,5-ju
sjtatious on ship and shore, exclusive
of foreign warships and amateur outfits, up to Oct. l, 1010. according to a
directory compiled by tbe United Suites

were on steamships, yachts and tugs
throughout tbe world. Of the shore
stations the United States bad 200, of
wblcb eighty-eight were on tbe Atlantic and gulf coasts, forty-elgbt
were on tbe great lakes, fifty-one on

In 1900 tbe Marconi company transmitted between ship aud sbore messages aggregating r.lO.ooo words. Tbe

that In tbe three months ending Oct.

such conditions are the cause of much
misery and unhuppiness is fully
known to tliose who suffer from them
and the need of curing them is as
vital us is relief from diseases with
higher sounding names. We coin-
mend the following statement to any
one suffering from weak, thin. blood,
or shattered nerves. Mrs. Mae Mu-
culie, Gleichen, Alta., says: "A few
years ago I became run down, not
seriously ill, but just tired and weak
all the time. I consulted our family
doctor, who gave me tonic after
tonic with no effect. I gradually got
weuker and weaker until I could not
do my work. Then I went to another
doctor, who pronounced hy case one
of decline, and recommended a warmer climate with complete rest. This
I could not afford and I became a
complete nervous wreck. One day
while visiting a neighbor on old gen-
tl-man who was taking Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for partial paralysis recommended them to mo. I sent out
and got three boxes, but without
much faith tliat they would help me,
but before they were gone I noticed
an improvement and I continued taking the Pills, constantly growing
stronger, until I had taken seven or
eight boxes, when I was completely
cured. I could do my work as easily
ns ever I had done in my life, and
the doctor told men that he could
scarcely believe the change in me, us
lie had not had the least hope that I
would be strong again. Now \ always keep the Pills on hnnd and i' I
foe] fatigued or weary take them for
three or four days so us not to get

How it Effects the Manufacturer and
the Farmer
It was Abraham Lincoln, who gave
popularity to the Protectionist side
! of the tariff question, when he said:
I "I do not know a greut ileal ahout tlie
tariff, but what I do know is, tlmt
when we buy goods abroad the foreigner gets the money, but when we buy
I goods at home, we get both tbe goods
and the money." This sound philosophy charaet.'ri7.es another of the
late president's famous homilies.
"Tlie farmer and the manufacturer."
the president once saial, with his
characteristic shrewdness, "are both
in the same boat nnd I reckon they've
got to learn to navigate the craft together or they'll upset." "He compared the ense of a Pennsylvania
farmer," continues the historian in
question, "und a Pennsylvania iron
merchant and implement maker whose
properties adjoined. Under a pro-
tcctive policy the farmer supplied
the ironmaker with bread, meat, vegc.
tallies, fruit, fodder for horses, etc.,
and the ironmaker supplied the farmer with all the iron, iron implements,
etc., which he needed. Assuming that
a change is made and the Protective
policy abandoned, the farmer then
diHcovers that he can buy bis iron
implements cheaper from Kurope than
frnm his neighbor, assuming thut lie
sells a sullieient nunntity of flour in
Kurope lo enable him to effect the
purchase nf the iron. He ultimately
aliscovers thai the cost of curriage to
Hi,a const, transportation hy sen to
Kngland, insurance and curtnge on
arrival, does not enable him l<. re.
ceive such a good reward for his lulwr
ns he formerly did when selling his
"our to his neighbor, the irnnmnker.
He, therefore, determines to sell his
flour as before to bis neighbor. But
meantime the farmer discovers that
while he hns heen purchasing his
iron implements from Kurope his
neighbor, the irnnmnker, hns heen
compelled to stop his works nnd dismiss his employees, not having sufficient work tor them. The farmer,
therefore, now finds thnt he has more
wheat thnn he knows whnt tn do with,
nlso thnt he is no longer nble to jjpll
his fruit, vegetables, fodder, ment,
horses, etc., to his neighbor, the iron-
maker, as he has gone out of business. In fact, he finds that through
buying nhroad in the cheapest mnrket.
he has destroyed the home mnrket
fnr his own products and thrown n
number of his fellow-countrymen out
of emplyment."

A Sham Love

' "Marcella." aaid Major Harrington,
rising. "1 aball never gira it up."
"Major," replied lbe young lady,
"you are wasting your time and opportunities. Vou are getting on in life—
you must have turned tbirty-and if
you expect to marry It la time you

"I am making up to a very nice
(Irl, a girl wbo will eventually look
favorably on my suit"
"if you refer to me, I must tell you
•gain tbat you are mistaken."
"It ahall be my part to convince you
that It la you wbo are mistaken."
"Enough of tbls war of words. Good
"Tomorrow there Is to be a anam
battle.  Are you to be on the field?"
"I am to Join tbe stall of tbe general
•f tbe blue."
"Indeed, that's quite an bonor. General Snigaon Is not given to Inviting
women to participate with him In
army maneuvers."
"Goodby. 1 would advise you to try
• certain young lady wbose father
wears an eagle on bis shoulder.]'
"Thank you. 1 ahall stick' to tbe
young lady who—aa they say ln tbe
French exercises—Is temporary aid to
the general of the blue."
Thia kind of skirmishing had been
going on for weeks between Marcella
Laraway and Major Harrington. Tbe
major's attentions had been tha talk
of the garriBon for tbe reason tbat
Mlas Laraway had "turned down" officers of higher rank and lo some cases
toore ample fortune. - It was expected
that Harrington would Join tba Innumerable caravan tbe lady waa sending Into tbe desert never to return.
Notwithstanding tbe bold face the
mayor bad put on the matter while In
tba presence of Miss Leraway. be no
sooner left her tban he became aa limp
aa a wet rag. He went to bla quarters,
threw himself Into an easy chair, lit a
pipe and gave himself over to a reverie wblcb waa anything but hopeful
The adage "Faint heart never won
fair lady" seemed to him a mockery.
Oa  this occasion  he  felt  more da-
"wno'e -rn dead watT
I than usual. It waa a matter of
common talk In the garrison tbat General Snlgaon was eager to marry
again, and recently be bad shown at*
tentlons to Miss Laraway. Hla bavlng
Invited bar to Join bis staff In tbe sham
battle waa especially noticeable, for ba
waa known lo deprecate tbe pretence
•f women In the Hue of duty. Moreover. Harrington believed tbat Mlaa
Laraway would prefer to be Mrs. General to being Mrs. Mafer.

tbat Mlaa Laraway had got tbe general. Some exclaimed, "Good match!"
others, "Wby, he's old enough to be

tbe fact of Mlaa Laraway'a presence
au tbe general's staff looked very Ilka

.And now cornea one of those Ind-
tenta, contretemps, colncldencee-call
them what you will—that ao often
have thrust themselves Into battles
and turned the scale to one side or
the other. An ald-de-camp galloped
tip to Major Harrington aad. saluting,
"Major Harrington, tbe Judges
bave decided that this position Is untenable and that lt Is too late for you
to retreat Tou are enfiladed by artillery and a charge bas been made
that haa annihilated your battalion.
Ornslder yourself out of the fight"
Tbe aid galloped away, and tbe major
•are tbe order to stack arms and break
ranks. Tben. sheathing al*> sword,
he dlamouuted. gave hia horae to an
orderly, and, going to a tree, lay down
on bla back Id tbe shade. The files
tickled hla none ao he covered his face
with bla handkerchief. One of bis
captains remarked that he looked as
If he bad been killed practically aa
well as theoretically.
How long tbe major lay tbere he
didn't know, for be went to sleep. He
waa awakened by tbe thud of horses'
hoofs on the turf and was about to
arise and aalute aome general wbo was
doubtless riding by with bla staff
when he heard a voice that be recognized aa that of the general of tbe
* "Who's the dead man?"
"Major Harrington."
A shriek!
Harrington took tn the situation at
once. Tbe shriek had come from General Snlgson's aid, Mlas Laraway. Instead of rising and saluting he
thought lt would be less embarrassing
for Marcella If be lay still. Besides, be
wished to henr tbe rest
"He Isn't dead. Mlsa Laraway, any
more tban tbe rest of hla command
They're all theoretically killed."
This waa aaid by the chief of
staff. The general had colored and
turned away. All tbat Harrington
beard after that waa the tread of
horses' hoofs aa tbe party rode away.
"Hum!" be exclaimed to himself.
"Methlnka that otber fight ln wblcb I
am more Interested than tbls one ta
decided, defeat being turned to victory
for my own long suffering self. If sbe
can avert disaster ln consequence of
tbls panic abe'l) do better than 1 tblnk
ahe can."
Harrington sat up and looked about
bim. Some distance awa)* were the
general of tbe blue and hla staff
Near by tbe officers of tbe battalion
were standing In a group. They were
evidently waiting for him to awake
from hla slumber, and trom tbe expression of tbelr faces tbey bad evidently beard the cry Miss Laraway
had raised at being Informed tbat the
•tiff and stark body lying ou Its back,
the face covered with a handkerchief,

waa rash enough to laugh and waa
about to say something Intended to be
funny, but Harrington managed to
forestall bim wltb a reproof for a
trumped up error In tbe line of duty
during the fight that abut him up.
Then came the signal for the troops
to march to quarters. Harrington got

"This time I bare come to arrange

She turned away with a abrupt.
'There is one way. and only one,

"Whafa that?"
"For me to announce our engagement" ,
"Tou?  Why you?"
"Under tbe circumstances I am the
proper person to do so."
"Tou needn't trouble yourself."
He looked at ber for a few moments

Benares Swarms With Sacred Beasts
as Well as Sacred Men.
The holiest city on the face of the
globe is Benares, writes Frank G.
Carpenter from there. All who die
within 50 miles ol Benares, whether
they be Hindus or Mohammedans.
Buddhists or Christians, liars or
thieves, go straight to heaven. Even
to visit Benares wipes away sin, and
to bathe in the holy Ganges which
flows by it will make you eternally
happy. It is the greatest pilcrimuge
city on earth. The tomb of Con-
lucious in China, the birthplace ol
Mohammed at Mecca and the
Church of the Holy Sepuleher at
Jerusalem all put together huve not,
half the worshipers. More than a
million pilgrims annually kneel at
these shrines. In coming to them
thousands have prostrated themselves
again and again, measuring their
journey by their own lengths, and
every pilgrim thus goes around the
holy spots near the city, making a
circuit of 45 miles. This pilgrimage
takes six fuH days, and the route is
marked with temples and shrines.
Everywhere in the city Brahmin
priests are consoling and fleecing the
pilgrims. They can be told by the
caste marks on their faces and hall-
naked bodies, and by the white
strings around their necks. There
are more than 30,000 of them in
Benares, near the temples and under
great umbrellas down on the Ganges.
They will cure your sins lor a price;
they also take care of idols to the
number of a half-million or more.
Benares is a city of sacred beasts
as well as of sacred men. It swarms
with sacred cows and great white
bulls with humps on their backs. It
has sacred apes and a greut temple
in which the monkeys live with
Durga, the goddess of suffering death.
Durga is supposed to love blood.
She has a necklace of skulls under
her blood-dripping mouth. She is
crowned with snakes like the Medusa, and her face is covered with
gore. She is lond ol sacrifices, and
thousands of human beings have
been killed on her altars, but the
British have forbidden this now. The
monkeys throng the courts of the
temple and live in the trees which
hang over it. They are sacred to
Vuihnu, another great deity, and
are kept revered a< representations
of the monkey god Ram, being considered gods and goddesses who
must not be touched. They are fed

A Thrilling Wrick.
The story ol the rescue ol three
hands ot the mackerel boat John and
Abel, who were brought to the harbor
by the fishing boat King Edward has
thrilled Yarmouth, Eng. The John
and Abel was a mile and a half from
the Cross Sands, when Henry Bird, a
hardy salt of 75, who was steering,
was startled to see the water coming
in through the bottom boards. He
shouted to his mates, "She's burst,"
meaning the the boat had parted
asunder, and the next moment the
stern went down and all three were
flung on to the heap ol nets carried
in the bows, which, having corks attached, kept above water. The three
men clung to the nets as their own
boat sank beneath them. The King
Edward sailed as near to them as
possible and lifebuoys were flung to
the men. They were hauled through
the water lor sixty yards beiore they
were got safely on to the rescuing

The Victoria Colonist of the 8th
inst. has the following society . item
regarding well known former residents of thit city: A quiet and very
prelty wedding was solemnized at
St. Andrew's Roman Catholic cathedral on Wednesday morning,
when Mies Clara Farrell was united
in marriage to John Mohon O'Dris-
coll, of Vancouver. The church had
been charmingly decorated by
friends of the bride with roses, speet
peas and ferns. The bride, wbo was
given away hy her brother-in-law,
George A. Fraser, .looked very handsome in a smart tailored costume of
navy blue aergt with hat to match,
and carried an amethyst and gold
rotary. Miss Mamie Fraaer, niece
of the bride, attended aa bridesmaid
and looked very pretty in a toilett-
of eoronation blue witb white bat.
Mr. 0'Driscoll wat supported by
Joseph Hill, Vancouver, aa best
man. Benedict Bantley, organist of
the cathedral, rendered tbe Lohengrin wedding march, and the ceremony wab performed by hi* lordship, bishop of Victoria, Right Rev.
Dr. Alexander Macdonald, wbo was
also celebrant of tbe nuptial mass.
After the ceremony tbe wedding
party adjourned to tbe pretty residence of Mra. George Frater, corner
Fort and St. Charles streett, where a
sumptuous wedding breakfaat was
served, only the immediate relatives
and intimate friends of the bride and
groom being present. The table was
beautifully decorated with bridal
ruses and smilax. The groom's gift
to the bride was a beautiful diamond pin; to tbe biidesmaid, a gold
heart aet with pearla, and to the best
man, gold cuff links. Mr. and Mrs.
0' Driscoll left by tbe morning boat
for Seattle and Portland en route for
Lake Gerhund, Oregon, wbere tbe
honeymoon will be spent. Upon
tbeir return they will take up their
residence in Vancouver. The many
beautiful presents received by the
happy couple were tokens of the high
esteem in which they were held  by
their many friends.
