President Luther Makes Annual Statement Regarding Granby Affairs—Cost of Smelting Reduced—Continue Drilling
R. A. Brown, of the Volcanic mine.
The mineral, which ia said to aid
materially in the coloring of fruit,
will be used in the orchards at Brilliant. The price paid was 25 cents
a ton.
The Greenwood Miners' union
this week voted favorable on a prop
osftion to affiliate with the SS. 0.
Provincial Federation of Labor.
At the annual meeting of Granby Comsolidated, 'recently
held in New York city, President Luther made the following
statement regarding the operations of the company during
the fiscal year ended June 30th last:
Expenses have been reduced, and average cost per ton of
ore has been less than in any previous year. Had we been
able to operate at full capacity, this cost would have been
further lessened materially,
Difficulties in obtaining coke supplies, and finally the strike
of all coal miners in British Columbia and Alberta have added
to costs.
Our plants were never in better condition. All renewels,
repairs aud developments have been charged to expense; all
profits from outside operations, as well as all dividends received from investments, have been credited to their respective accounts, thus reducing their book value, instead of considering them as profits.
All developments at the Hidden Creek property fully confirm the information furnished by our engineers. These reports now appear fo bave been, if anything, too conservative.
It is hoped that production will commence on a small scale
before the end of 1912.
Mine development during the year consisted of 9894 feet,
and diamond drilling 8207 feet. Granby ore smelted amounted to 959,563 dry tons, and foreign ore to 24.783 dry tons.
General Manager Graves says: Net earnings were not at
all satisfactory, amounting to $217,416.
The mines at Phoenix produced and shipped 950,663 tons
of ore, against 1,175,548 tons shipped last year for the same
period. Cost of mining was only 1 per cent per ton greater
than the previous, while the cost of smelting was reduced 3
per cent per ton. I consider this excellent work in view of
the conditions that prevailed at both the mines and smelter.
The mines at Phoenix to date have produced and shipped
a total of 7,229,914 tons. On July 1, 1910, there were 6,429,-
196 tons of ore estimated in sight. Shipments during this
period were 957,200 tons.
More energy has been put into development of outside
properties than in the development of the Phoenix property.
The intent has been, however, to develop as much ore each
year as is shipped. Diamond drills will be put down from
time to time to prove the continuance of ore bodies in various
locations.
Tho stockholders can congratulate themselves upon the
purchase of the Hidden Creek mines, which has practically
doubled our ore reserve. It is reasonable to assume that the
cost of producing copper will be less at the Hidden Creek
property than it has beenjit our plant at Grand Forks.

With the recent conclusion of the deal which finally disposes of Voigt camp, owned and developed by Emil F. Voigt,
M.E., and associates, the largest transaction in an ore proposition that has ever taken place in British Columbia has
passed into history, says the Princeton Star. The magnitude
of the deal may be inferred, including, as it does, some 63 or
64 mineral claims, besides 2000 acres of land, timbered and
grazing, and also available in portions for smelter sites, etc.
The purchasing party to the Voigt camp deal is one of the
largest and best known mining and smelting companies in the
west—the British Columbia Copper company. The head
office of this company is in New Yorks, Newman Erb, president; B. H. Eggleston, secretary-treasurer; E. G. Warren,
manager and superintendent of works. The coinpany is capitalized at $3,000,000, and last year had a favorable profit
and loss balance of $256,561, and cash $107,095. The smelter is situated at Greenwood, about 135 miles from Princeton
by rail, and the company owns and operates about a dozen
mines in British Columbia and Washington, chief of which is
the Mother Lode group in the Boundary, containing 180
acres, with fine ore bodies.
Although the price paid has not been officially announced,
the amount is well understood to be $2,000,000, this, owing
to terms and conditions to be supplemented with expenditures, bringing the total cost upwards of $3,000,000. A smelter, tram line and all the equipment necessary for a large
copper producing plant are included in the plans and outlay.
A gang of men will be immediately employed in the development of this vast property, tlie company's engineer, Frederick
Keffer, being now on the ground making a prclimination examination for that purpose.
Voigt's camp is to be the scene of great future mining operations, all the conditions necessary being present to warrant the statement. Continuous true fissure veins have been
traced two and three thousand feet carrying good copper and
gold values. Little bornite is found, but the even distribution
of values throughout the camp makes the abundant ore, easy
of treatment, especially inviting to smeltermen. Copper in
many ot its varying conditioas may be found here. With a
smeltef constructed and located to command large custom
tonnage from the Similkameen and Tulameen valleys, and
with short-haul coke from Coalmont, the smelting possibilities are extremely favorable.
lt is thirteen years ago since Mr. Voigt first prospected
what is now the famed Voigt camp. His long experience in
mining iu Baker City, Idaho, at Bossland and other camps
I roved an unerring guide to him in his determination to
found a camp equal to any. He systematically prospected
his claims, making assays and procuring such other data as
would enable him to present a proposition en bloc that must
command capital.
If there is luck iu odd numbers, the thirteen years dining
which Mr. Voigt lias anxiously waited the consiiiiiiiiatinn
here chronicled, brings to him and Princeton district tin* certain good luck in all honest, plodding toil. The congratulations ofthe people are due the man who Ims conferred such
far-reaching benefits on the country at large, and it is a niat-
i ter of satisfaction to know tliat lie intends to still follow his
profession in this district.
Adversities and difficulties await every successful man's
career, and tliose, like phantoms of superstition, serve only to
prove one's courage and perseverance. Mr. Voigt proved
I equal to every discouragement offered by rugged, obstinate
j nature, caring less, probably, for unwarranted criticisms and
the usual "cold water" showered upon intelligent enterprise
than all the other superfluous objections. His success means
advancement forthe whole country and his reward will be a
mighty incentive to the mining men interested in this section. . THE  SUN.   GRAND   FORKS.   B. Q*

expect, for the mine had been a sacred thing, almost a part of the religion of the diminishing tribe which
had imparted the secret to Le Fenu,
and any intruder was bound to suffer. aSo far as Fenwick knew, the
last survivor of this tribe was Felix
Zary. Leaving out of account altogether the latter's religious fanati-
acism, he had been deeply and sin-
jcerely attached to the family of Le
' Fenu, and now be was playing the
port of the avenging genius. All
these things came back to Fenwick
at he sat there.
He knew full well the character ot
the man he had to deal with; he
knew how clever and resourceful Felix
(Continued.)
"Excellent," cried Evors. "Couldn't
be better. Do you think those people
would mind if you looked them up
very late tonight?"
"Not in the least," Venner said.
"There is only one drawback, and
that is the danger of travelling."
Le Fenu suggested that the difficulty could be easily overcome by
the use of Fenwick's motor, which,
fortunately, the detectives had brought
back with them when they came in
search of the culprit. It was an easy
matter to rig Fenwick up in something suggestive of a feminine garb
and smuggle him out into the
grounds, and thence to tbe stable,
where the motor was waiting. Fenwick came down stairs presently, a
pitiable yellow object. His mind still
seemed wandering; but he braced
himself and became a little more like
himself when the plan of action was
explained to him. Vera drew a deep
breath of relief when once the man
was outside the house.
"Thank God, we shall never see
him again," she said, fervently.
"And now, do. you know, I believe I
could eat something. It is the first
time that the idea of food has been
pleasant to me for days."
Meanwhile, Venner and Fenwick
were speeding along in the car towards London. Perhaps it was the
knowledge that safety lay before him,
perhaps it was the exhiliaration caused by the swift motion of the car,
but Fenwick became more and more
like himself as they began to near
the metropolis.
"This is very kind of you," he
said, "considering you are a stranger
to me. If you only knew my unfortunate story "
"I know your story perfectly,"
Venner Baid, coldly. "You see, I had
the pleasure of the friendship of the
late Mr. George Le Fenu, and Mr.
Evors ond the younger Mr. Le Fenu
are also known to me. Not to be behindhand in exchanging confidence
for confidence, I may also say that
your niece, Vera, is my wife."
Fenwick soid no more, for which
Venner was profoundly grateful.
They came at length to the little
house in Poplar, where Fenwick wos
smuggled in, and a certain part of
the story confided to a seafaring man |
and his comfortable, motherly wife,
who professed themselves ready and
willing to do anything that Venner
asked them.
"Give him a sitting room and a
bedroom," Venner said, "and take
this ten-pound note and buy him a
rough workman's wardrobe in the
morning as if you were purchasing it
for yourself. Let him lie low here
for a day or two, and I will write you
instructions. As to myself. I must
be back to Canterbury without delay."
Trembling with a sort of fearful
joy, Fenwick found himself presently
in a comfortable sitting-room at the
back of the house. He noted the
cleanliness of the place; and his heart
lightened within him. Something of
his own stern self-reliant courage wns
coming baek to him; bis busy mind
began to plan for the future. Pres-
ently he was conscious of a healthy
desire to eat and drink. In response
to his ring, the landlady informed
him that she had some cold meat in
the house, and that it was not yet too
late to send out for something of a
spirituous nature.
"Very well," Fenwick said in high
good humor. "Give me the cold
meat, and ask your husband to get
me a bottle of brandy. I shall feel
all the better for a thorough wash,
and don't he long, my good woman,
for I hnve never been so hungry in
my life ns I nm now."
Fenwick returned to the sitting-
room a few minutes later tn find a
decent meal spread out for him. There
waa cheese nnd butter and some cold
meat under a metal cover. A liottle
of brandy stood by the side of Fenwick's plale, with n syphon of soda-
water. He took a hearty pull of the
mixture. The generous spirit glowed
in hia veins. He would cheat the
world yet.
"And now for the food," he said.
"I trunt it is beef.   Nothing like beef
on occasions like this.   Also "
He raised the cover from the dish.
Then he jumped to his feet with a
snarling oath. He could only stand
there, trembling in every limb, wilh
a fascinated gaze on thc dish before
him.
"God help me," he whispered.
"There is no getting away from it.

Ocean Island lies only 62 miles
louth of the equator, and in full rush
ot the equatorial current, which,
itreaming across the mid-Pacific from
jast to west, runs past the island with
a varying strength of from one to three

rations of their year-long cruises. But

CHAPTER XXVII.
Nemesis.
For a long space of time Fenwick
stood there with- his head buried n
his hands. All the way through, he
had never been able to disguise from
himself the feeling that, sooner or
later, this dread thing must happen.
Years ago he had taken his life in
his hands in exploring thc recesses
of the Four Finger Mine; he had
more or less known what he had to
the suggestion thnt there was some
{mysterious magic behind Zary's
movements, but now he did not know
what to think. All he knew was that
he was doomed, and that all the
police in the metropolis could not
shield him from the reach of Zary's
long arm.
And here, indeed, as proof positive
of the fact. Two hours before, nobody, not even Fenwick himself,
knew thnt he would spend the night
at the little house in Poplar. And
here was Zary already upon his
track, almost before he had started
on the long journey which was intended to lead to the path of safety.
Fenwick never troubled to think
what had become of tbe meal prepared for him, or how the extraordinary
change had been brought about.
Gradually, as he sat there, something
like strength and courage came back
to him. Come what might, he would
not yield, he" would not surrender
himself into the hands of the foe
without a struggle. He replaced the
cover over the dish, and rang the bell
for his landlady. She came in a moment later, comfortable and Bmiling,
the very picture of respectable middle-
age. As Fenwick glanced at her, he
at once acquitted her of any connection with his final warning.
"I am sorry to trouble you," he
I snid, "but I should like to know if
you have any other lodgers. You see,
I am rather n bad sleeper, suffering
a great deal from nightmare, and I
should not like to alarm your other
■odgers in the middle of the night."
"Lord bless you, sir," the woman
said, "we haven't any lodgers at all.
We don't need to take them, seeing
that my man is comfortably off. Of
course, we are pleased to do anything
we cen for you, but we shouldn't
have had you here at all if it hadn't
been to please Mr. Venner. We'd do
anything for him."
"No doubt." Fenwick said, hastily.
"I surjpose your good i husband sees
a good many of his old'friends occasionally?' .'
"No, he doesn't," the woman re
plied. "I don't suppose we have had
anybody in the house except yourself
for the Inst two months. I hone you
have enjoyed your supper, sir?"
"Oh, yes." Fenwick stammered. "1
finished all the meat. There is one
thing more I should like to ask you.
I moy have to go out presently, late
as it is. Do you happen to have such
a thing as n latchkey? If you haven't
tho key of the front door will do."
The latchkey was forthcoming, and
presently Fenwick heard his landlord
ond his wife go upstairs to bed. He
did not feel comfortable until he had
crept all over the house and seen
that everything was made secure.
Then he sat down to think tbe mot- \
ter out. Twice he helped himself lib.
erolly to brandy, a third time his
hand went mechanically to the bottle
—then he drew back.
"I mustn't have any more of that."
he said. "It would be simply playing
into the hands of the fiend who is
pursuing me."
With a resolution that eost him an
effort, Fenwick locked the brandy
away in a cupboard and threw the
key out of the window. In his pres.
ent state of mind he dared not trust
himself too far. Partially divesting
Himself of his clothing he drew from
ahout bis waist a soft leather belt
contnining pockets, and from these
pockets he produced a large amount
of gold coins and a packet of banknotes. Altogether there were some
hundreds of pounds, and Fenwick
congratulated himself on the foresight which had led bim lo adoot this
plan in case necessity demanded It.
He hnd enough nnd more than enough
to tnke him to the other side of the
world, if only he could manage to
get rid of Felix Zary.
His mind was made up at length;
he would creep out of the bouse in
the dead of the night and make his
way down to the Docks. At every
hour ships of various site ond tonnage put out of the port of London,
and, no doubt, the skipper of one of
these for a consideration would take
him wherever he wanted to go; and
Fenwick knew, moreover, that there
were scores of public houses along the
side of the river which are practically never closed, and which are run
entirely for the benefit of seafaring
men. It would be easy to make inquiries at some of these and discover
what vessels were, leaving the next
tide, and a bargain could .be Btruck
immediately. So fnr as Fenwick was
concerned, he inclined towards a. sailing ship bound for the Argentine.
His spirits rose slightly at the pros-,
pect before him; his step was fairly |
Hght and buoyant as he proceeded in
the direction of his bedroom. There
was no light in the room, so that he

for a box of matches which fell from
his fingers and dropped onto the floor.
"Confound it," Fenwick muttered.
"Where are they?"
"Don't trouble," a calm, quiet voice
snid out of the darkness.    "I  have
[•matches,  with  which  I  will proceed
fo light the gas." '

I only landed for a short time at the

"Whether King George will ever be
the leader of fashion that his father
was time alone can tell," gravely
states a publication devoted to stylet
in men's clothing. "King Edward was
known to have the largest wardrobe
of any monarch in the world. He
kept in readiness about 200 suits of
one kind or another, as many shirts
for various occasions and upward ol
100 hats and caps. About 60 oi these
suits were removed each year from
the active lists and became perquisites of his two valets.
"Six thousand dollars was figured
as an estimate oi the value oi his regular wardrobe, but in this amount
hiB numerous unilorms were the most
extravagant consideration. He was
honorary colonel ot more than 30 regiments and thus required about 100
uniforms ready for uae at any moment.
"It is interesting to know that he
did not pay the high prices lor hit
general apparel that might be supposed. A pair of trousers cost him from
$10 to $16; lounge suits $60 and evening clothes $76. The society men of
to-day often pay much more tor similar garments.
"The late King's taste in dress was
not so much that of the exquisite as
that of a smartly attired man. To
wear what was most becoming was
{his Interpretation of the art oi being
well dressed. Englishmen at one time
jwere extremely conservative in regard to their clothing and were very
Islow to adopt any radical change in
style. Colored shirts, tan shoes, tha
'Alpine hat and numerous other accessories did not go in England until
sanctioned by the late King Edward."
Outpost of the Church.
Rev. T. Hunter Boyd, a popular
New Brunswick pastor, has established an information bureau ior the
Canadian Presbyterian Church at 64
Bothwell ttreet, Glasgow. This bureau
aims at keeping old country people
in touch with Canadian church conditions.
Tho Shy Girl.

The really shy girl Is a victim of

thus assist ber wonderfully tn passing

pushed forward-thrust Into the full

purpose of making ber accustomed to a
irowd of strangers. Tbe Idea la that

A Useful Gift.
It is beci.ni.in tae admirable custom ol weall.iy Canadians to present
solleciions ol rare books and pictures
*.o the pubi.e wneu they no longer
.lave use ior them, instead ol selling
their indiscriuiiinuely. Sometimes the
public get such presents in wills. Tne
owners nnd tiui they cannot carry
away the best oi tneir earthly accumulations into tne next world, ana so
leave them to the state to look alter,
in instance receut.y occurred in lint-
\et. Columbia wnere an eminent book
collector found that he had no place

—a uselul hobby. Mr. Justice Martin
!or tweuty-tivc yeurs had the satisfaction of seeing rarities come to iiim

stream became uncontrollable. Only
a book collector snows that joy. Now
this public-spirited citizen is secure
in the thought that his treasures sre

DIXIE TOBACCO
Rtmembert Thtlr Namet.
The faculty of remembering people
by name it exceedingly rare, in Toronto, it is said tnat Archdeacon Cody
of St. Paul's Angliosn Church, bas
just about the best memory lor names
on record. At any rate he knows the
name of every man working on the
b:j new church tnat hla congregation
is erecting on Minor street, Toronto.
Every morning s-.-es the energetic
archdeacon on the ground, moving
about among the masons and Isborers
and exchanging words ot greeting with
them. II he misses oue ol them,
there is sn immediate inquiry as lo
where so-and-so is.
To show to what an extent he carries his knowledge of the Individuals
in his big congregation, the story ia
told of a christening he once held io
the church. The infant was the last
arrival in quite a big family, and
there was a considerable company ol
relatives and friends present. It could
not be said that the rector was an
very intimate terms with this particular family, but, just as he waa beginning the service, his quick eye no-
ticed sn absentee. "Where's Master
Herbert?" he asked. It was surprising and gratifying to tbe family to see
that their clergyman remembered
every one ol their numerous progeny
: nute.

aSome people have a great and clear
idea of their rights, and don't fail to

A Toronto woman was sitting near a
front bedroom window in order to
watch her child, who was getting his
first natural sleep after a severe illness. Worn out by work and anxiety
the mother fell asleep. She was awakened by an Italian push-cart man,
who was loudly calling "Banana ripe!
Banana ripe!   Ten cents a dozen!"
Leaning out of the window, the
mother put up her hands and begged
the Italian to be quiet.
"Aw, what's the matter with you,"
he said, "I pay ten dollar fer holler
round the streets."
A few days after school opened a
teacher was testing the members of
one of her old classes on what they
bad remembered of the definitions she
had taught them during the preceding
term. Finally she asked the bright
boy of the class this question:   -
"Now, Robert, tell me what a hypocrite is?"'
"A hypocrite," replied Robert without hesitation, "is a kid w'at comes to
school wit' a smile on his mug."

Probably the most useful tree In
the world is the cocosnut palm, every
portion of which is put to good use.
The trunk is used for building
houses, for mak'.ng furniture and
farm Implements and countless other
articles. Hollowed out, it makes a
canoe. Its leaves are used tor thatching, leal-stalks ior paddles and Ashing lines. The blossoms in bud make
preserves snd pickles, besides serving
aa a staple vegetable.
From the pith oi the trunk !s derived a kind ol sago, snd irom the
flowers sugsr snd vinegar. The ripe
cocosnut is a valuable article of diet.
The white kernel produces a delicious
cresm, a good substitute for milk;
while the oil is used as a lubricant
{or reap and caudle-making. It tl
alto applied to counteract the stings
of scorpions. The refuse ol the oil,
or oilcake, it valuable as food for
animals and poultry, and as fertiliser
for the soil. From the shell, drinking cups, spoons, lamps, firewood,
and even tooth-powders are obtained.
The husk supplies fibre for mattrestes
and cushions, brushes, and matt,
ropes, cable-nets, and even the harness for bullocks. The web sustaining the foot-stalks la made into

BABY'S TERRIBLE ECZEMA
Hands Tied to Prevent Scratching
Five Doctors Failed to Relieve,  But
Zam-Buk Worked a Cure
Mrs. Chas. Levere, of Prescott,
North Channel, Ont., tells how Zam-
Buk cured her baby. She says-.—"My
baby's head and lace was one complete mass ol sores. The itching and
irritation were fearful, and the little
one's plight was so serious that at
one time we feared her ears would be
eaten off by the disease.
"We had to keep her hands tied for
days to prevent her rubbing and
scratching the sores. Doctor after
doctor treated her in vain, until we
had had five doctors. They all agreed
it was a frightful case of eczema, but
none of tliem did any permanent
good. .
"As a last resource we were advised to try Zam-Buk. Tlie first box
did so much good that we felt sure
we were at last working in the right
direction. We persevered with the
treatment until we had used thirteen
boxes, and at the end of that time
I am glad to say Zam-Buk had effected a complete enre."
For eczema, eruptions, rashes, tetter, ftch, ringworm and similar skin
diseases, Zam-Buk is without equal.
It also cures cuts, burns, scalds,
piles', abscesses, chronic sores, blood

A   GENTLE   LAXATIVE
FOR   THE   BABY
Stomach and bowel troubles is the
cause- of nine-tenths ot the ailments
from which little ones suffer. Let the
little stomach and bowels be kept
right and baby will be happy, healthy
and strong. The only sure and safe
meanB of keeping baby's stomach and
bowels sweet and regular is to give
him an occasional dose of Baby's Own
Tablets. These Tablets are a gentle
laxative; they sweeten the stomach,
regulate the bowels, expel worms,
break up colds and prevent or cure
the dozens of ailments that afflict the
baby. The Tablets are sold by medicine dealers or by mail at 25 cents a
box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine
Co., Brockville, Ont.

Tukhk is not much sutisfiu'tion to
cities or communilie* in raising a
cry of indignation ngainst ihe census
department because the population
has not'increased fust enough during the past tan years to come up to
their expectations. There is absolutely no sense in such a wail. The
proper thing to do is, to endeavor to
ascertain the reasons why the growth
has lieen been unsatisfactory, and
if the fault rests wilh the people,
the wisest course to pursue is to
make an attempt to remedy it. The
citizens of some towns are 80 badly
disappointed with the returns that
they are advocating a recount by the
people. Such a censuj would be
Unreliable and worthless. It conld'
only b. meal fur the purpose of mis-
leaiiling people not acquainted with
the facts.
It is reported  that  Premier   Mc
Bride will shortly make another pi I
grimage to Ottawa for  the   purpose |
of securing "better terms" ior   Brit- j
ish Columbia.    If he  does  not  get
wbat he wants this  time,   he can't
blame Laurier for his failure.
Tiikhk is an impression aliroad
that the Montreal Herald has embraced thc Liberal faith. It is now
advocating the abolition of tho duty
on farming implements without nny
concessions from the United States.
There is no reciprocity about this,
but it is the next hest thing.
While the census returns give
Grund Forks a few less people than
it was expected we hnd within our
limits, the district surrounding the
city has made wonderful progress,
und we cnn afford to accept the result gracefully. With the better de-1
velopnieiil of our farming industry,
the population in the city will increase proportionately. The fact that
the Granby smelter was closed down
at the time the heads were counted

SOMETHING should he done with
the Cooper bridge, lt is snid to be
in nn unsafe cbndition fur traffic.
We understand lhat some of the city
officials arc in  fuvnr  of nuking   the
provincial government to divert the
material nud appropriation from
the First street bridge to the Cooper
bridge. In the event of the government agreeing to this change, the
city would be willing to construct a
footbridge at First atreet. This
matter should he investigated, and,
found desirable, agitated.

llm be.-t. picture ever offered new*piper reader.!. It is entitled "Honn-
Auain'' und describes a toiicbiog but joyful incident between two friends
who iiihi'I alter anxious separation.
"Laddie," it ijillie dog. famous for his beauty and gentleness, winner
of iniinv prizes ait aing snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
has been stolen, anal after many dnys' absence he escapes one night from
his captor anal returns lioiiie on a snoivy winter's morning with the rope
which he brok.' iu his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar buk brings his httl" mistress, Mirjuri.., to the'dnnr and
she throws her arms iinauiiil her trusty playui ite's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. ''Luddie"'is equally
da-lighted to he "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager hoy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhdbd; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling.locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walls of any home. •
The picture is by the celebrated irtist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.

The small sum of 81.50 will secure the two papers'for a full year including a copy of the charming picinrc "Home Again," whicli alone is
easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at that price.

No cabinet, even composed of the

MR BUBfeLE POWER.
Hortharn Ontario Mine Haa ■ R_aw
markable System.
Place in a mining camp a modern
department store completely equipped with telephone service and automobile delivery mid selling hydraulic
energy over the counter in hundred
pound packages, and the city bred
man may get a .sir idea ol what a
power plant means to nn industrial
community 1,000 miles Irom its coal
supply. Up in Northern Ontario
such power us this is more of a miracle than a l.riclt. Hat with steam heat
and porcelain tubs, (or the miner
can exist without a bath, but he
can't uncover pay rock without
power to drive the drills that do it.
When the price ol eoal <n Northern
Ontario began to eat into the ore
profits the miners hnrnessed the
Montreal river (or power.
Ragged Chutes, the point where
the miners located their plant, is a
natural water power in ItseK. It is
ten miles irom Cobalt. Here the
river (or ahout 1.1*00 yards whirls
down a thirty-fly (oot grade and (or
(our seasons in the year is a boiling,
tossing torrent.
The theory ns practiced waa to
drop this surging tide down a 300
(oot shaft near the ton ot the rapids,
then to catch the air bubbles as they
rose from the water, racing through
a subterranean chamber toward a
tail shaft leading up again to ths
bed of thc river 1,000 feet downstream.
Building this power plant was
about one hundred times more of a
proposition thnn its origiuators fore-
saw. First the low masonry dam
was completed, 660 feet across the
river, the waterways thus erected
having a capacity of 1,200 cubic feet
per second. Immediately above the
dam, in the centre of a large concrete basin, two eight-foot steel
shafts, each containing sixty-six
pipes fourteen inches in ..iometer,
were sunk to a depth of 330 feet. A
thousand feet downstream the other
shaft was sunk into the rocky bed,
and then in three shifts, and working day and night, the miners chopped a subterranean chamber connecting the two shafts at the tipper end
of the rapids with the single .one at
the lower. They cut this great underground raceway twenty-two feet wide
along its entire length, twenty-six
and a half feet high at the bottom of
the shafts and forty-two feet high in
the central j art ot the tunnel. The
whole undertaking was hazardous to
an extreme, but neither officers nor
men will admit it. It was all in the
day's work with them. Moreover, the
camp at Cobalt had begun to taunt
them, and they were going to finish
the job or "bust."
Across the ridges above the hole
where the rapids roared gangs ot
timber jacks in the meanwhile chopped a path straight through the
shrub toward Cobalt. Swamps, where
men sunk to their armpits, were filled in with rock and timber, and before work on the power plant was
completed they had laid seven mile.
of corduroy road for the big steel
pipe lint—this twenty inch lap welded pipe line of German steel, which
was to carry the air eventually and
was laid In sections as it arrived,
the various loops and feeders ranging from twelve to three inches in
diameter.
Trad* With Britain.
John Bain, Imperial trade correspondent for Ottawa, recently issued a report on the external trade
nf the United Kingdom as it affects
Canada for the six months ending
June 30.
The total values ni the merchandize imported into the United Kingdom from Canada, and exported from
the United Kingdom to Canada, during the first six months of each of
the years 1910 and 1911, were as
follows:
The figures given being in pounds
sterling—Imports into 'he United
Kingdom from Cnnada, 1910, 10,599,-
000; 191', 8,481,000.
Exports from the United Kingdom
to Canada, of United Kingdom produce, 1910, 9,511,000; 1911. 9,464,000;
of foreign and colon'al produce, 1910,
1,439,000; 1911, 1,478,000.
The exports to Canada were thus
about the same in value as last year,
but the imports from Canada were
lower Ly two millions sterling, cl
which nearly one and one-half millions were due to diminished imports
ol wheat. Britain*! wheat imports
(rom Canada were £3,825,000 in the
first six months laat yeu, while they
were only £2,422,000. Bacon and
hams, however, show an increase
from £695,000 to £1,027,000.
Heckling.
With high-sounding sentiments a
political orator can catch all the people some of the time and some oi the
people all the time, but he can't catch
all the people all the time,
Lloydmineter, Sask., which ia a Barr
colony, furnished an example of how
an orator's best sentiment may be
turned against him. Lloydminster's
population is chiefly English, and
some of the men there have had the
well-known English habit of heckling
speakers.
A prominent orator aroused considerable enthusiasm by rounding out hi*
speech with the oft-quoted statement
of Sir John A. Macdonald—"A British
subject I was born; a British subject
I will die."
Applause greeted the statement, but,
when the clapping had ceased, a heckler aaused a laugn at the orator'* expense by saying, "That's all very well,
but what are you going to do in tb*
meantime!"

MAKING SHOT.
Method Employed by William Watt*,
th* Inventor, Still Used.
Th* tower process of-making shot
*at invented by William Watts, 4
plumber oi Bristol, England, in 1769.
tils tower wa* "built" by sawing a
iquare bole in the centre ol the var.
aoua Hours oi his home, and locating
i well in the cellar, into which the
(lobules of molten lead dropped and
were instantly cooled and hardened.
Watts secured a patent in 1782 and
sold iii* Loudon rights in luOO ior
M3.685. !
fa:s tqwer is still is use,' although
it nas been ueigutened by the addition of several stories. The lead, when
molten, is poured into a sieve-like
receptacle at me top of the tower,
and these molten drops, falling into
the well, UO feet below, form the
snot, which are tnen passed through
a polisning grader, ihey are then
skilled from a hopper on to an inclined plane, the perfect shot running
on a second plane, while the imper
feet drop tnrough an opening between.
Tne shot pass over four series of
planes and only tue perfect reach the
last plane.
A larger site than BBB cannot be
made by this process. The larger,
siies, including shrapnel, are made
by two different processes. In the
medium sue a wire of the proper,
material is fed into a machine which
mathes it into a ribbon shape and
{lunches irregular formed shot. The
argest are made by pouring the
metal into long bullet moulds, which,
in cooling, form irregular shot.' The
various sues are then placed, each,

Marquis as Seaman.
The Marquis ol Graham, who next
season will be joint master ot the
newly-formed Eusion harriers, has
had an extraoruutury aaventurous cu-,
reer considering nis years, whicn num ■
ber only thirty-tnree. Like Lord Bras-
sey, he wanted to know the real business of sea lile, so he shipped as an
ordinary sailor, served a full apprenticeship in tue mercantile marine, got
his master's cert.ncate when he .was)
twenty-one, and was ior some time on
officer on Lord brassey's yacht, thn
bunbeam.
Lord Uraham also did some good
service in South Africa, working with
the Naval Brigade and Naval Volunteer Service Corps, and acting for a
time as press censor in Cape Town.
The Marchioness oi Qraham was
Lady Mary Hamilton, and was master of the Hamilton Harriers, and
also kept a pack ol otter hounds.
She is of royal descent and numbers

heiress of her father's great wealth
when quite a little girl, Sne had beeu
brought up very simply by ber mother, who had a little scheme by which

charity.
Every year the little girl had a
baby pig given to her, and when it
was fuliy grown she sold it to the
bailiff, distributing the proceeds
among the poor people on the estate.
After her father's death hundreds of
begging letters reached Lady Mary,
who was at a loss to understand why
people Should make their appeals to
her. "Mother," she asked, after going through one batch, "do you think
they have heard about my pig?"

conductor for his ride, and a bell an
nounced that tbe Public (service company had come liy Us <>a»n. Tben Eg-
gteaton begun to look about him,
Directly opposite sat the girl wbo
waa destined to stir up a commotion ln
Eggleston's heart. It waa a certain
expression on ber face that won blm-
not melancholy exactly, but something
akin to melancholy. Her feaiurea also
attracted bim. Beamy la 11 metier ot
opinion, and to Eggleston ahe waa
beautiful. Her eyes were blue and
ber hair was blond wltb a tint of gold
in It   Her figure was symmetrical

left tbe car wben the girl left It aud
learned where sbe could be found wltb
a view to making ber acquaintance.
A* It waa he let ber go out from him
Into the great world and aa soon aa be
had done so considered himself a fool.
Xb* car started on. and be made frantic signs to Ibe conductor to atop, but
tbere waa no atop till tbe next crossing, and by lb* time Eggleston got
baek to where th* girl had left the car
. abe bad disappeared.
Eggleston waa seized wltb one of
tboae Inexplicable Impulses. Ideas, de-
lire* or whatever thejr are to pus-
acts this particular woman. It wa*
with him an Ideal attraction, and lt
was overpowering. He swore a big
oath tbat be would marry hi* itreet
car girl and no otber. Tbl* wa* ridiculous, for tbere wa* little chance of
bt* meeting ber again and no way by
wblcb be could dod ber. Tbe consequence waa that be ws* more tban
likely to go through life a single man.
But luck favored him. After pining
two yean for bla lost lore tbat he bad
never seen hut once, and tbat In a
atreet ear. be stumbled on ber under
far more Ideal circumstances. Bhe
was sitting on a rock at the seashore,
tbe waves rolling In on either aide ot
ber. Eggleston approached ber trom
tbe aide, and when he came within a
few ;arda of ber she turned, looked at
him and again directed her gaze ont
upon tbe boundless ocean.
Eggleston stood still, thinking wbat
to do, Ue .was determined tbat sbe
sbould not escape bim again, but
dreaded to shuck her by forcing an
acquaintance. Nevertheless be made
up bla mind to take tlte risk ot speaking to ber.
"Pardon me." be aaid. "I see tbat
yon are wrapt In tbla great ocean,
beautiful today, awe inspiring tomorrow.   I myself"-
He paused, expecting ber to turn
ber face to bla. Wben full time bad
elapsed for ber to do so and abe did
not, wben Instead ahe turned her back
to bim aud looked In the opposite direction, hla henit sank. Hla advance
bad heen repelled.
"Idiot!" be exclaimed Inwardly.
"Wby could I not bave waited for an
Introduction? I bad everything my
own way, and now 1 bave made a
mess of It."
Cringing under tbe rebuff, be slnnk
awsjr. His tliat Impulse was 10 take
a train and get as far from the place
and the girl na possible. But tbls was
•nly momentary. He resolved to stay
and conquer or die. Prom afar be
watched her sitting on the ruck till
she arose and went to her hotel.
Tbe mme evening Eggleston promenaded on the board walk, hoping and
at the same time dreading to meet ber
wbo bad repelled bis advances.   Bbe
waa walking then, with another girl,
who looked something like her and
mlgbt be her slater. The two sauntered along slowly, languidly, neither
speaking to the t.thapr. As. Eggleston's
charmer approached she cast a momentary glance at him. then turned
her eyea upon some other object He
plainly saw a look of hauteur tn her
face, bnt this mlgbt bave been the result of sensitiveness on his part, which
led him to Imagine tbat he aaw what
was not there.
Eggleston looked foi lbe girl the nex»
day. bnt failed to tind her. Bhe had
(one. However, be learned her nam«
snd tae city In wblcb sbe lived. But
be considered himself no better off
than when be bad lost ber In tbe
crowd. He questioned If be was not
worse off. He was ln the position of
one wbo bad endeavored to force an
acquaintance upon a girl and bad received a rebuke.
Fortune favored bim sgaln. He was
st an evening function and auddenly
came upon tbe object of supreme Interest to bim. Bbe was sitting alone.
How could one wbo waa ao charming
to bim be a "wallflower?" He hunted
for some one to Introduce htm to her,
but found no one. He spoiled to the
uost wno replied: "All my guests are
supposed to know one another wben
under my roof. 1 Introduce no one."
Considering Eggleston's sensitive condition, he wss cowed. He went back
to the place wbere he bad left tbe
girl, resolved on an attempt to placate
ber. and saw ber walk out of tbe
room. She went 10 the library, and he
followed ber. Rhe look a book from
a shelf and opened It Eggleston stood
a few feet behind her.
"If you don't forgive me." he blurt-
ed. "I shall commit suicide."
He waited for a reply, but received
noae. Presently the girl turned and
looked nt him. Then she turned again
to her bnnk without a word.
Tbla second rebuff look away all the
courage there wus In Eggleston. Again
be slunk away, Ibis time nol onl*«vJith
psln but bitterness lu his heart';.   '
In seme respects our mltlds' are
merely human machines, ns onr'bodies
are, end prone, like machinery} to gel
Into conditions where Ihey will not
work properly. Kggleston's mind wns
st tbla time like a runaway auto. The
power couldn't be turned off and there
was danger of n smash. He had fallen
tn love with n girt at sight, hud at
tempted to make her acquaintance
without an Introduction, beeu rebuffed,
bad aaked forgiveness, been Ignored
and waa now In a desperate condition
In other words, he waa running sway
with himself.
He at once left the bonse wbere he
bad met wltb this second rebuff, went
to bis room snd walked lhe Boor till
morning. He was sure be bad seen s
look of contempt on the girl's face. He
wes not sure but tbut tbere was mingled with tbls look a threat meaning
"If yon force yourself 00 me again I
aball surely turn you over to tbe po
lice." Nevertheless all thia merely add
ed to tbat wildly sensational condition
which will beget more of ibe passion i
of love In n given time thnn any <>ibe<
cause. (Ine moment he would calm

cldes by young men or girls aa a result

But be survived. Uradnnlly be came
down to a condition wbere be could
take thought upon the matter and lay
a plan for future procedure. He would
endeavor to gain tbe services of a third
person, tbrough whom he might gain
forgiveness from the woman who con
aldered herself Insulted. The only per
son be knew wbo wus surely acquainted with the girl was Charlie Rickets,
at wbose house ht* had met her. He
wrote Rickets a note asking far a private Interview. His request wns granted, sod Eggleston told him Ibe whale
story. He had not gone far before
Rickets endeavored 10 put In a word,
but Eggleston Insisted on telling lt all
before receiving any comment,
When the story was finished Rickets
offered to Introduce bis friend to tbe
young lady, guaranteeing tbat sbe
would listen to an explanation and tbe
lover would be treated wllb consideration. He added thnt It would be better
for Eggleaton In ts* hla own defender,
and Rickets would uot enter upon tbe
subject wltb the girl.
A few dsys later Rickets wrote Eggleston, saying tbat he bad arranged
wltb tbe young lady tbat tbe letter
sbould call on ber «a a certain evening.
At the time appointed Eggleston called and sent In bis card wltb a wildly
beating heart He was uabered Into
a cosy reception room, wbere be found
tbe lady of hla lore. Bbe rose aa be entered with a reassuring smile, but said
no word of welcome. Inviting Eggleston to a seat, she took up an ear
trumpet lying on a table and, adjusting the smsll end to ber ear. waited
for him to talk Into tbe otber end.    -
There may he such s tblng as too
sudden a relief. Uke a flash It occurred to Eggleston tbat on neither
of tbe two occasions be bad addressed
ber bad sbe beard bim. He bad come
to ber to explain wbat he supposed
she considered an Insult His intention was to tell her frankly thst bis
excuse was the greut love he bnd conceived for ber, but thia unlooked for
situation was too much for him. He
didn't know what to say. The small
end of tbe tube waa In tbe girl's ear;
hla mouth waa In position lo speak
into Ibe other. The girl was waiting
for him to begin, but he couldn't begin. Desperate, scarcely knowing
wbat he said, he shouted:
"It's n hot evening."
Tbese four wards were the beginning
ot a courtship that had heen going on
In Eggleston for a long while, hut of
which the lady wus not conscious,
Tbey hove been long married, and Eggleston Jokes about his tlrst words to

having been so commonplace. But he
has never forgiven Charlie Rickets for
not having tald him before be met her
tbat she was deaf as a ferryboat
Charlie says he tried to do so. but Eggleston wouldn't listen to bim.
If there Is nny moral to this story
It Is thnt It Is the listeners and not the
talkers who win. Eggleston should

GLASS EYES.
Amusing   Incident*   In Which They
Havs Figured.
The Camorra trial has been the occasion of several sensational episode*,
not the least striking of which was
the extraordinary behaviour of one
of the prisoners, named Esposito.
who. in a fit of hysterical rage, took
out the glass eye of which he wss
the unfortunate possessor and hurled
it nn the floor of the court.
Nnt long since a case arising ont ol
a alsss eye was tried at the Enni**
killen Quarter Sessions, when a la<1
named Ga.lr-'ier sued a draper for
damng"s for the detention of n glass
eye. Tho lad, who bad borrowed

whioh the draper, in whose debt he
sti'l stood, refused tn elve.
Ni r wss thnt all. for. chancing In
meet his erstwhile employe, the
draper took him into his shop, and
there and then demanded the fflass
eye as security fnr the loan. Overawed by the other's threatening atti
tude, Gallagher handed over hi? eya\
and consequently, by reason of his
disfieurement. lost the plsee fnr
which he hsd applied. He tt.°refnre
sued his farmer employer, who was
ordered to pay $10.
Although in the foregoing cose the
possessor of the gla«s eyp most assuredly objected to his prnnerty being considered in the Ugh*, of a
pledge, there is more than one instance of an artificial eye being voluntarily flsced in pawn. A pawn-
broke-, carrying on business In sn
eastern county town in Enelnnd. told
the writer that he hod at one time n
client who invariably, every w°ek
when his money ran short. rnis"d
sufficient on his glass eye to carry
him on till next pay-day, when his

sction, With but few intermissions,
lasted for several years, until the
man's death.

Of the many strange clubs that are
on record none is more singular anrl
bizarre than the "Glass Eyes," which
formerly held their meetin-zs ot Moscow, in Russia. The members of
this extraordim ry coterie, all ol
whom had lost on eye. met once a
month at the house of their president,
who was elected annually. At these
gatherings, which were solely convivial, the false eyes were tsken out
and their redistribution was—for the
evening only—determined by lot.
Borne years age, by reason of a dearth
ot candidates eligible for membership,
the club ceased to exist.
Bravo, Britain!
The fact, recently mentioned that
a British firm had secured a huge
contract for *a "ks in Buenos Ayres,
is only one of many that huve appeared lately to prove that Britain 1*
still the greatest commercial nation
in the world.
In engineering especially we are far
ahead of all rivals, and in the making of machinery Britain again holds
the lead. Last year the value of
machinery exported from Great Britain amounted to more than $1,400,-
000,000. Germany, our greatest rival,
falls snme eight millions short, while
in cotton goods we export more than
seven tin: s as much as they do, und
three times as much wool stuff. More
biscuits are made in Britain than iu
any other country in the world, and
eight times as much jam is exported
every year as Irom all the other European countries  put together.
The list could be extended, but the
more one inquires the mure certain
are the r roofs thut both lor quantity
