THINNING FRUIT

oles and of all but one apple from
each clatter diminishes the percentage
of culls.
7. Tbe perceutage of perfect apples
may be increased up to as high as 99
per cent, and still a tree may carry a
full crop of them.
*•*. The fruit usually avorages higher in color, of a larger size, more uniform and better in flavor aud keeping
quality.
9. The cost of harvesting, handling, wrapping and packing a box of
96's is much less than that of   188'a,
10. The grower reaps the greater
prices and the greater profit from selling the larger and better grades of
fruit. This will be especially marked
in 1911, and as competition for markets increase this benefit will become
greater year by year.
11. Both the individual grower and
the district gain in reputation by the
higher quality of the output. This reacts in future seasons in a wider market and still higher prices.
In British Columbia there is probably no question but that in every district thinned fruit will give a better
profit to the owner. The objection
that the labor for tho purposo is ex-
pensivo is obviously a fallacy, as it
cannot cost any more to pick an apple in J une than it does in October.
Whkn to Thin.—The proper time
to   thin   large fruit is  in June and
.liy July. The thinning of pears on
Vancouver island is done in May und
•arly June. It the thinning of fruit
is left later than early July the fruit
is much harder to remove, progress is
much slower, and much valuable energy wasted by the tree.
How much thinning should be
done?
The above question is one depending upon many factors and one to
_^^^_^^^^^^^^_^ which no definite answer can be given,
It can, however, never Uk» the place |but generally speaking, if the follow-
of tbe latter praoticvy and no grower [«.nK   principle   is kept  in   mind the
™ The removal of surplus fruits from
fruit trees is a matter of great importance, and is receiving more attention
eaoh year from the growers in British
Columbia, On this account snme general arguments in favor of the practice and some bints on methods may
prove of value, especially to beginners.
While tho crop of tree fruits, as a
whole, is not heavy this year, some
trees are overladen, and there are
very few on which the fruit could not
be improved by judicious thinning.
The members of the British Columbia
Fruitgrowers' association know
that the crops of Ontario, Nova
Scotia aud all the Eastern and Central states promise to he the largest
in years, which means a great bulk ot
No. 2 fruit ou our markets this season. In the season of 1910 the difference between the price of Xo. 1
and Xo. 2 fruit was not great. This
season, on tho contrary, the higher
grade fruit will' probably bring a
much better price and, in addition,
will have a much wider market and a
keener demand.
On a. medium, or short crop, the
grower naturally wants all the possible returns fur his fruit. When he
eonsiders that the surplus, misshapen
or diseased fruit on a tree decreases
the quality nf tho balance, he will see
the nrgent necessity for the proper
amount of thinning. Winter pruning
is   in  essence a method of thinning.
has a right to, sny that because of
judicious winter pruning, thinning is
unnecessary. Every tree should be inspected and, if necessary, the fruit
thinned.
The reasons for thinning fruit are:
1. From the standpoint of ths tree
and the . soil the great argument is
thnt a, csop of numerous small apples
has many more seeds in it than the
same weight of larger fruit. It is the
seed, and not the flash of the fruit,
whioh requires the concentrated plant
food. A thousand small apples make
about double the drain on plant food
that five hundred large ones do.
2. Trees judiciously thinned tend
to bear moderate crops each year.
They do not degenerate, into bearing
in alternate years, and trees which
V*.ve wquiivil this bad habit may be
trained into more regular annual bearing by proper thiuning.
3. The weight of fruit can be distributed more evenly aud. wore towards the centee of the treat, enabling
thf tree to carry the fruit more easily
With less breakage of branches from
wind or from the heavy load. It
help* to make props unnecessary.
i The fruit is of higher quality in
the year of heavy orop, and in years
«f ft general light orop there is a larger auanity with quality, ao that in thu
average the growers receive a much
higher net return from the tree.
5. Thinning does not necessarily
decrease the weight of fruit harvested,
Vsmlly the weight in any one year is
just as great as though nu thinning
had been practiced. Sometimes it is
greater,
6. The removal of misshapen ap-
VERY CLOSE CALL
Oarl Kirkpatrick Accidentally Shot by Boys at Target Practice
Carl Kirkpatrick, son of tbe well
known rancher near this city, had a
narrow escape from instant death
this afternoon, as the result of being
bit by a stray bullet fired from a 22
rifle by some boys at target practice.
Young Kirkpatrick, who is about
17 years of age, was in George
Cooper's plumbing shop at the time
of the accident. He and Mr. Cooper and Charlie McCoy were standing
close together, engaged in conversation, when they were startled by a
bullet crashing through the back
window. Kirkpatrick staggered
and nearly fell to tbe floor, but instantly regained his equilibrium
and managed to remain on his feet.
An examination showed that the
bullet had entered bis head, back of
tbe ear.
The wounded boy was at once removed to Dr. Truax's office. The
doctor had considerable difficulty in
extracting the bullet, as it had
penetrated the skull bone, but
finally managed to do so with a pair
pliers. Had tbe bullet travelled a
fraction of an inch farther it would
bave reached tbe brain, resulting in
in instant death. Young Kirk
patrick exhibited considerable nerve
during the probing for the bullet.
Tbe pain, which must have been in-
grower is not likely to go far wrong:
Leave just as much fruit as the tree
can safely carry to perfection, and at
the same time retain vitality enough
to develop a sufficient number of
strong fruit spurs for the following
season's crop, and make sufficient
wood growth for its age and variety.
While experience is evidently the
chief factor in so deciding, there are,
however, % number of practical hints
which will help-to secure good results.
1. Apples should generally be
thinned to. about fi" apart on the
limb. Varieties whicli grow to a
large sue should be left farther apart,
what* early varieties and small growing kinds may be left somewhat closer.
This rule is not always a safe one, as
tbe opener the treo is the closer the
fruit may be left, and Ibe denser the
tree the farther apart fruits should
remain.
•„'. The more rational method is fur
grower to decide for himself just what
yield of fancy fruit the tree can carry
in accordance with the above rule.
On the average, a well grown ten-
year-old tree should average eight
boxes of Xo. I and fancy fruit. This
equals about 1000 apples, and in thinning this estimate should be kept in
mind aud can he followed, as has beeu
fount) in practice, with astonishingly
good results.
3. The first, move in thinning is to
take off tbe deformed, diseased and
iuseotigfested fruit. Remove, in
fact, anything whioh, from its present
appearance, cannot become a high-
class apple,
i. Only one apple or pear should
left on a fruit spur, and it  is gener
ally better to remove all the fruit
from each alternate spur. Fruits
hanging on the ends of slender
branches rarely grow to a full size,
and so should lie romovod. In thin-
nimi summer and early fall apples, including Duchess, one custom is to
leave about two to a spur at the timu
of thinning and then remove one of
these in harvestine a crop of green
cooking apples in early August, tlm
otlier being removed with the full
crop a couple of weeks later.
5. Apple blossoms are born in clusters, of which the ventral blossom
opens first and produces the largest
apple. This central apple is always
more typical of the variety than are
the outside ones. It is usually superior in color, size, and keeping quul-
ity as well,so that as far as possible the
centre apple should always be left.
G. Plums are usually thinned to 2"
apart, though the actual distance, as
with apples, depends very much on
the variety and district, and must be
decided by the experience of tli
grower. It is unnecessary to thin the
Italian prune, the Knglebert and
some others.
7. Cherries, apricots and crab a\
pies are seldom or never thinned.
The only apparatus required fur
thinning is the customary fruit picking ladder, a bag if there are any infested or diseased fruits to be gathered
ami destroyed, and a pair uf thinning scissors. Growers differ as to
whether the scissors are a time saver,
hut a goud pair is excellent, especially with hard-pulling varieties.

can be obtained through the department of agriculture at Victoria, or

Kamloops.

that this incident will teach him, as

Improvements at the Smelter
Work on tbe huge slag elevator
now being constructed at thc Granby
smelter is progressing steadily, and
about two months hence it will be
ready to go into commission. A
high trestle is being built, and on
this the slag, after being granulated,
will be carried to a distant part of
the dump by means of an endless
belt and sing eonveyancers and
piled in miniature mountains around
the works. This improvement will
be an expensive piece of work, as the
belt alone will cost about $14,000;
but in the long run it will prove an
economic innovation. The costly
method of disposing of the slag now
in use, involving the maintenance
of a number of slag trains and considerable railway trackage, together
with the employment of a small
army of engineers and brakemen,
will be entirely eliminated, The
furnace room will also be a more endurable place to work in after the
installation of this system, as much
of beat in tbat portion of the works
at present is generated from the pots
filled witb molten slag.
Ends Sessions
The conciliation board in the
Crow's Nest coal miners' strike met
in Banff on Thursday morning for
the last time to consider statements
or take evidence. The session was
short and no meeting of any kind
was held in the afternoon. Dr. Gordon entertained tbe members of the
two committees at the Banff Springs
hotel in the evening, and today a
meeting of the committees will be
held to consider propositions for returning to work. The board will
not sit as such, but negotiations
looking to a settlement will be carried on, and if a satisfactory arrangement can be reached the work
of formulating the findings of the
board from the evidence will be
taken up later.

"Shall we po mid take a hand?"
Ourdon whispered excitedly. "Murder might be going on here."       ,
"I think we had Wtter risk U a
little longer," was Venner's cautious
reply. "Alter all said and done, we
must not, make ourselves too prominent. If necessary we will fake a
hand, but unless I am greatly mistaken, the prisoner upstairs has got
the better of his captors. Ah, I
thought so."
The sound of strife overhead suddenly ceased after two smashing blows
in which evidently a man's clenched
fist had come in contact with naked
flesh. There -was a groan, the thud
oi a falling body, and the man in the
list slippers come rolling down the
stairs. He wus followed a moment
later by a young clean-shaven man
dressed in a grey Norfolk suit. His
frame suggested powe; and strength,
though his face was white like that
of one who is just recovering from a
long illness. He was breathing very
hard now, but otherwise he did not
appear to have suffered much in the
struggle out of which he had emerged
in so victorious a fashion. He made
bis way direct to the drawing-room,
and immediately a woman's voice uprose in a long wailing cry.
"I'd give something to see that."
Venner whispered. "Only I'm afraid
we can't do anything until the gentleman in the list slippers comes to
his sense and takes himself off. There
is another one coming now. He does
not look much better off than his
colleague."
Another man came down the stairs
swaying as he came, and holding on
to the balusters. He had a tremendous swelling over his left eye, and
a terrible gash in his lip, from whi _h
the blood was flowing freely. Altogether he presented a terrible as
pect as he bent over the prostrate
form of his unconscious companion.
"Here, get up, wake up," he said
"What are you lying there lor? Hell
be out of the bouse before we can
turn round, and what will the govir-
nor say  then?"
The man in the list, slippers gradually assumed u sitting position and
stared stupidly about him. A kick
the ribs seemed to restore    him   to
some measure of consciousness.
"Don't ask me," he said. "I never
saw anything like it. Here's a chip
who has been in bed on and off i r
months coming out in this uncxpe:.-
ed -manner and knocking us about r*
it tie were ninepins. What's become
of him, I should like to know."
"What are vou two rullians doin(*
there?" came Fenwick's voice from
the drawing room. "Oo back to your
room, and I will send for you when
I want you.'-
The men slunk back again, proba.
My by no means sorry to be out -f
further trouble. No sooner had they
disappeared than the two friends
stood in the entrance to the drawing
room once more. The friendly mirror
stood them in good stead, for by its
aid they watched as dramatic and
thrilling a picture as ever was presented on any stage.
The young man in the Norfolk suit
stood there side by side with the girl
in white. He had his arm about her
waist. She clung to him, with lur
head upon his shoulder; there were
words of endearment on her lips.
Just for the moment she seemed to
have forgotten that they were not .-.11
alone; iiii the world might have been
made for herself and her lover. For
the moment, too, the dreamy look had
left her face, and she no longer con.
veyed the expression to u stranger's
eyes that she was suffering from some
form of insanity. She was alert and
vigorous once more.
"Oh, I knew that you would coin,*
back to me," she suid. "I knew thai
you were not dead, for all they told
mo so.    How cruel they were to toll
ine these things "
"Stop!" the cripple cried. "It may
sound cruel and heartless lor me in
interfere just now. but I must insist
thnt you go hnpk to your room, Beth.
Baek at onee."
"Oh, can't I stny a little longer?"
the girl pleaded,   "It is such a long
time since Charles and I "
"No. no, you must do as I tell you.
It will be fur better itl the long run.
We are only two men against three
and there mny be others concealed
in the house Inr nil I know. For myself I am perfectly helpless, and
Ohnrle3 looks ns il he had just conic
from the grave, Evidently his struggles have tried him."
"Well, I must confess I am feeling
rather down," Charles Evors suid.
"I could not stand it any longer and
made u dash for liberty. Goodness j
knows how long I hnve been in the
hands of those men; goodness knows
how long they hnve kept me under
the influence of drugs. I suppose the
supply ran short. Anyway, I hni
just sense enough to take ndvnntuirc
of my first opportunity. You enn explain nil to me presently, hut the
mere fnct nf Fenwick being hern is
enough to tell mc who is nt the bot
tom of this business."
Fenwick placed his fingers to his
lips and whistled shrilly. Almost im
mediately sounds of footsteps broke
out overhead and u door opened somewhere with a loud crash. The cripple
turned to the girl who had crept reluctantly as far us the doorway.
"Now, listen to me," he said quickly. "Listen and act quickly. C4o
downstairs into the street and bring
here the first policeman you can find.
Tell him a violent quarrel has broken
out between Mr. Bates and some uf
his guests, and say you fear that soiiie
mischief will be done. Do you understand me?"
The girl nodded quickly. Evidently
she quite understood. Therefore she
disappeared so suddenly that Vennar
and Gurdon had barely time to get
out of her way. They heard thc stre *t
door open—they were conscious ol the
sudden draught.rushing up the stairs,
the sound of passing cabs was distinctly audible.
The girl hnd hardly time to get outside before three or four men caino
down the stairs. They rushed Headlong into the drawing* room, where
they seemed to pause, no doubt de
terred in their violence for a moment*
by the sight of the cripple's revolver
"Here's our chance," Gurdon whispered. "The girl will be back wi'.i*
the police in two minutes, and w-
have heard quite enough to know the
ingenious scheme which is uppermost
in the cripple's mind. Let'" lock
lock them in. Don't you see that ths
key is on this side of the door? Turn
it quickly."
"■Good business," Gurdon chueklei
cis he snapped the key in the \02X.
"Now they can fight as long as they
like. At any rate, they can't do much
mischief as long as they are caged in
Wiere."
A din of mingled voices came from
the other side of the door, followed
quickly by the whiplike crack of u
Tevolv-er shot. Fists battered violently on the paneln, and just as the din
was at Hb height the helmets of two
policemen appeared mounting the
stairs. Venner stepped coolly forward as if he hod every right to be
there.
"I'm glad you officers hnve come,"
he said. "There seeni9 to be something in the nature of a free fight going on in there. We **ook the liberty
of turning in us the door was open
to see what had happened. You had
better go in yourself."
The policemon tried the door, which
naturally did not yield to his hand
and he called out to those inside to
open in the name of the lnw. A voice
on the other side pleaded that the
door was locked. Venner lurned the
key in the door.
"Probably the young lady had the
sense to lock them in," he said.
"You had better go inside, officer.
Np, there is no reason why we sfiould
accompany you. As a matter of fact
our presence here is more or less an
intrusion."
The policeman stepped into the
room and demanded to know what
was the matter. They could see the
master of the house sitting there in
his chair, with a tall young man in
a Norfolk suit by his side, und opposite him Fenwjek, flushed and sullen,
with his satellites behind him. There
were four of them altogether, and the
appearance they made was by no
means attractive, seeing that two of
them were showing unmistakable
signs of violence.
It was the crtppl** who first recovered  his self-possession.
"I am sorry to trouble you," he
said, "but I am afraid we have rather forgotten ourselves. You know
me, of course?"
"Oh, yes, sir. You ore Mr. Bates,
the gentleman who is supposed to
have been kidnapped the other night.
The inspector told me you were still
on the continent."
"Well, I am not," the cripple said
curtly. "I am back home again, as
you cun see with your own eyes. The
gentleman over there with the yel.
low face is Mr. Mark Fenwick. thc
well known millionaire. I daresay you
have heard of him."
Both officers touched their hats respectfully; they had come prepared to
make one or more arrest and thus
covetr themselves with comparative
glory, but the mere mention of Fenwick's name settled that iioint once
nnd for all.
"As you nre probably aware." the
cripple went on, "until quite recently Mr. Fenwick wns staying nt the
Great Kmpire Hotel, hut the place
wus too public lor one of his gentle
und retiring disposition and so he
made arrangements to take my house
furnished, though the understanding
was thnt nobody sbould know anything about it, and nobody wouid
have known anything nbout but for
the fuel thnt in the Wny of business
Mr. Fenwick hud to consult these
other gentlemen. Perhaps, they don't
look in the least lik> it, but they are
nil Amerienn capitalists, having made
their money by gold mining. They
don't look a verv uttrnctive lot. officer
but if you knew them ns well os 1
do you would learn to love them for
their mony engaging qualities, and
their purity of heart."
The officers touched their helmets
again ,and appenred to be undecided
as to whether the cripple was chaffing them or not. But though his
voice hnd n certain playfulness ol
tone, his face was quite grave and
steadfast.
"Very well, sir," the foremost o'
the constables said. "I understand
that neither of you gentlemen desire
to make any charges ngninst another.
I shnll have to mak*' n note of this.'
"Of course you will," the cripple
said sweetly. "Now I appeal to Mr.
Fenwick and Mb companions as to
whether the whole thing has not been
a silly misunderstanding. You see,
officer, gold mining is a thirsty business, and occasionally leads to rather more champagne ..than is good
for one. I can only apologise to my
tenant, Mr. Fenwick, for losing my
temper, and I will at once rid him of
my presence. It is getting very late
and I can come round in the morning
and make my peace here. As I am
a little lame, I will ask one of you
officers to give me your arm. Charles,
will you give me your arm alsoP I
wish you good-night, Mr. Fenwick
In fact, I wish you all good-night. I
shall not fuil to call round in the
morning "
"But you are not going away,"
Fenwick cried in dismay. "You are
not going away from your own hou«e
at this time of night?'
"You forget," the cripple said
gravely, "that for the time being you
are my tenant, and thot I have no
more right in this house, indeed, not
so much right, as one of these officers. I have sent my servants away,
and I am staying—in fact it does not
matter much where. 1 am staying.
Come along."
The trap was so neatly laid and so
coolly worked that Fenwick could
only sit and gasp in his chair, while
his two victims walked quietly away
in the most natural manner in the
world.
"We hod better be off," Gurdon
whispered. "There is no occasion for
us. to stay any longer. Let us follow the cripple. By Jove, I never
saw anything done more neatly than
that I"

SUFFERED 6REATLY FROM COLIC
Mrs. Aime Guenette, L'Immaculee
Conception, Que., writes: "My little
boy suffered greatly from colic. I
gave him castor oil and other medicines without helping him in the
least. One day I saw Boby's Own
Tablets advertised, so wrote for a
box. I found them so good that I
always keep them in the house and
would use no other medicine for
baby." The experience of Mrs. Guenette has been that ot thousands of
other mothers. Not only do the Tablets cure colic, but they eure constipation, vomiting, indigestion, make
teething easy,' banish worms and
make baby bright, active and happy.
The Tablets are sold by medicine

THAT THEY SHOULD USE DODD'S
KIDNEY PILL8 FOR KIDNEY  ILLS.

But Dodd's Kidney Pills Cured
It—That it Why he Recommends
Them.
Dyment, Ont. (Special).—John 01-
berg, postmaster here, and well-
known throughout this entire neighborhood, is telling his friends that
Dodd's Kidney Pills are the cure for
all forms of Kidney disease. And
when they ask how he knows, this
is the answer he gives:
"I was troubled with Backache for
a long time and Dodd's Kidney Pills
cured it. That's why I recommended
Dodd's Kidney Pills to all sufferers
from Kidney Disease."
And the postmaster is not the only
one in this neighborhood who has
found relief from their Kidney ills in
the old reliable remedy, Dodd's Kidney Pills. Others there are whose
Rheumatism has been relieved, whose
Dropsy has vanished, and whose Urinary Troubles have been cured. For
if the disease is of the Kidneys, or
caused by the Kidneys being out of
order, Dodd's Kidney Pills never fail
to cure it.

Just nt the time when the buds
are bursting and thc birds are chirping merrily in thc treetops, many
people feel most keenly the debilitating and enervuting effects of indoor winter life.
The blood is so thin nnd watery
that it fails to supply nutrition to
the nervous system and to the vital
organs. You feel tired, weak and discouraged, appetite fails, digestion is
impaired, energy and ambition arc
lacking, ond strange depressing feelings come over you.
But nature has provided certain
restoratives to be used nt this time
of yeur to form new, rich blood and
create new nerve force. These elements are found in condensed and
easily assimilated form in Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food.
Thousands of men nnd women hove
learned to escape this spring depression ond weakness and discouragement by using this great restorative.
Vitality is increased, strength nnd
confidence return, buoyancy is felt
in every movement of the body, pallor and weakness and disease give
place to the glow of health and vigor
of mind and body.

QUEEN MARY'S FRIENDS.
Soma  Personal Cronies ol tht  New
Consort ol  Britain.
The late Queen Victoria used to
say, "May is a continual ray ol sunshine," and this statement is borne
out by Her Majesty's principal
friends. It it well known thst Her'
Majesty is slow to make friends, but
once made she does not easily allow
anything to sever the friendship. Her
tastes are, of,, course, not like these
of many society women. Her chief interest is centered in her hope and her
children, and she has no desire to be
like the "butterfly" society woman.
Rank does not receive any great
consideration from Her Majesty, and
many of the friendships which she
made with people in comparatively
modest stations of life when a girl
living with her parents in White
Lodge, Richmond Park, the still retains. Indeed, a number of people
living in the neighborhoods of Royal
Richmond, Kingston, and Teddington
own intimate friendships with Her
Majesty.
Queen Mary, like Queen Alexandra,
is fond of really good music, and it a
very lair musician. She also possesses a tuneful but not powerful
meiio-soprn.no voice. Her Majesty it
possessed of considerable skill in art,
and has distinct literary tastes. She
very seldom millet an exhibition of
any importance,. On these viiits the
is generally accompanied by Lady
Katherine (Joke, who, tince the death
of the Queen't mother, to whom the
wat Lady-in-Waiting, has been one
ol Her Majesty's Women of the Bedchamber. Lady Katherine Coke is a
very keen art critic, and Her Majesty is often amused by her clever
comments upon the pictures which
come under their notice.
Her Majesty has very few intimate
friends among society ladies, but
among those honored with her friendship may be mentioned the Duchess
of Devonshire, who was recently installed as Her Majesty's Mistress of
the Robes, and Lady Mount Stephen,
to whom Their Majesties, it will be
remembered, paid a visit Bt Brocket
Hall, near Hatfield, some few weeks
ago.
Lady Eva Dugdale is perhaps the
oldest and most intimate friend that
Her Majesty possesses. As is well-
known, Lady Eva has been the
Queen's Lady-in-Waiting, or Woman
of the Bedchamber, as she is now officially known, ever since her marriage
nearly eighteen years ago. She is a
very clever needlewoman, and is also
said to be an expert upon furniture
and old china, two topics in which the
Queen takes a very great interest.
Neither the Queen nor Lady Eva Dugdale cares a great deal for outdoor
sports; both are great readers, and
often discuss and criticize books together.
The Countess of Shaftesbury, who,
it will be remembered, accompanied
Their Majesties on their last visit to
India, and will again,this November,
is the Queen's Lady of the Bedchamber, is another intimate friend of Her
Majesty's. Before her marriage with
the Earl of Shaftesbury she was Lady
Constance Grosvenor, and is a sister
of the Duke of Westminster.
All the Queen's friends have something to recommend them more than
a mere social qualification. Her Majesty takes a very great interest both
in British manufactures, which she
has done to much to aid in every
possible way, and in social questions.
Old relics of the Royal Family have
also a great fascination for the Queen.
Among the Royal Family Her Majesty
is immensely popular, and this is no
doubt due to her general high spirits,
the way in which she always looks
on the brightest side of life, and her
good humor.
Old  Man's Thought of Rheumatism.
Sir Alfred East, A.R.A., who recently underwent a serious operation in a
nursing home, bears, beside his English title, the honors of half-a-dozen
Continental societies.
When quite a small boy Sir Alfred
was obsessed with a passion for painting. His first studio was a seat at a
window, where, popped up on cushions and chairs, to prevent him fall-
Ing, and supplied with a slate and
pencil, he tried to draw horses passing in the street below. Despite the
li.et that he was only a tiny toddler,
the animals in his drawing, although
shaky as to the anatomy, never lacked the eyes, tail and mane, and the
importance the young artist paid to
detail augured well lor hit future success.
Sir Alfred once hod a striking, if
amusing, example of the fact that the
best qualities of art are not always
appreciated by the public. One of his
pictures is "An Idyll of Spring,"
A'liich now hangs in the Preston Gallery.
(In the bank in thc foreground il

view in the New Gallery, where the
picture was first exhibited, an old
couple stood and looked at it.

dear. Who could ever sit on a damp

FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1911
Three monthB' trial of the commission form of government in Spokane baa convinced many, including the severest critics of the plan,
that the affairs of the municipality
today are conducted with greater
efficiency, economy and dispatch
tban under any administration since
tbe incorporation of the city in 1881.
Many wastes have been stopped,
numerous abuses have been corrected, and modern methods are now
employed in all tbe departments.
The business of the city is conducted
in the same manner that a succss-
ful merchant or manufacturer operates his Btore or factory plant.
Robert Fairley, commissioner of
finance, states tbat while tbere is
nothing certain yet relative to a reduction in taxes, he is prepared to
Bhow tliat the taxpayers have received 100 cents' worth of work for
every dollar expended by the commission. Cmmoissioner Fairley has
received requests from more than
100 cities in various parts of tbe
country lor copies of the Spokane
charter, which is declared to be the
most advanced practical plan in
American. Tbere is room for tbe
introduction of this system in even
the smaller cities, which are usually
governed by men who possess but
a crude knowledge of business affairs, and wbo are obliged to cater
to the wishes their friends in order
to retain office, resulting in waste
and increased taxes.
The Sun hopes that there is some
foundation to the report tbat King
George will visit Canada on bis way
to India. This would give the
country an opportunity to get back
some of Canadian money spent in
London this week.

emphatically than a man can condemn a brother in an hour's oration.
After all, it is a good thing that

THE LONDON IuIeCTURY CO., LTD.,
25, Abchurch Lane, London, E.C,
NEWSPAPER COMMENT
The MaBney-Harris company of
Tofonto has acquired a monufactur-
ing plant at Batavia, N. Y., at a cost
ot 12,000,000 and will, hereafter
carry on an immense business m the
United States as well as keeping up
its record in Canada. It is time that
somebody in opposition to reciprocity arises and smites somebody for
this new evidence of the dangers of
reciprocity. We are tempted to
bowl ourselves hoarse at this conclusive evidence.of a declaration of war
on the prosperity of Canada by the
American trusts.—Victoria Times.
Over in London a quiet-spoken,
courteous old Canadian gentleman
with the suavity and polished manner of a French seigneur is giving the
world lessons iu empire management
and in true patriotism to his country,
in the face of apparent misunderstanding and evident toadyism and snobbery. To Sir Wilfrid Laurier seems
to fall tlie oft-recurring duty of steer.
ing the colonial conference in the-
direction of solid empire building and
in keeping it from tbe rocks of disiu
tegratiou. Heading tlio reports of
the conference one is half inclined to
accept tlie Montreal Star's theory
that the conference of the empire does
depend upon Sir Wilfrid. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier is in constant conflict with
that noisy and fluent and very recurrent imperialist, Sir Joseph Ward,
whose sense of proportion and appreciation of the real meaning of autonomy seems to be quite in proportion to
his ignorance of Canadian history rathe traditions of Britain's treatment'
of its "dependencies" since 177G. Sir
Joseph Ward would giv« his own
colony a hostage for the defence of
the empire; he would bring his enslaved people in chains to the altar of
imperialism and there make tliem pay
tribute at bondmen to whom neither
liberty nor responsibility toul*' have a
meaning. Sir Joseph Ward is freely
quoted by that tuft-hunting, teadying
organization, the Canadian Associated
Press, which is controlled by John
Koss Hobertson, of the Toronto Tele-
grain, "the greatest want-ad medium"
iu Canada. The Canadian Associated
Press in London carefully selects for
Canadian consumption such press
opinions of Sir Wilfrid Laurier as will
suit John Ross Itflbertson tn have
publisheil on this side. Mr. ltohert-
son is now and always has been a bitter political enemy of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, hence we find that out of tho
fifty or sixty daily papers published in
London only two or three are regularly quoted in disapproval of Sir Wilfrid's attitude and course, one being
the Morning Post', a Unionist paper
which has about as much relative influence on public opinion in Great
Britain as the Bullock's Comers Gazoot has on the fifth concession of
Bentick. Yet the Morning Post is
gravely quoted in London dispatches
lay by day to tell us how laurier is
taking Canada away from the empire.
Not a word is sent over of tho columns of matter published which approves of his attitude and which preponderates tlie adverse criticism four
or five to one. Tlie Canadian Associated Press service always has been
a joke in newspaper j ollices, but
never in its meanest streaks has it
lieen the screaming farce il now presents in its alleged reports of tho.colonial conference. When you see a
dispatch labelled Canadian Associated
Press yuu may know it is biased, prejudiced, unfair and distorted. So
much for the alleged Canadian news
service which systematically misinforms Canadians on vital matters in
London. So far Sir Wilfrid has prevented the colo nial conference from
making several serious blunders. Sir
Wilfrid is reproached in some quarters because he has no proposals to
make to the conference. He would
appear to be kept busy preventing the
fatal errors to which the conference
ia constantly exposed by  windy ora
tors of the Ward type. Sir Wilfrid
seems to find the task not a very
onerous one either for his profound
knowledge of the principles of autonomy, and his opinions are received
with such respect and acted upon so
promptly and thoroughly that there is
not much chance for argument after
he has spoken. His opinion seems to
be law with thn conference and it is
not even remotely possible that his
ideas do not accord with those of the
advanced statesmen now holding the
reins of power in Britain.—Saturday
Sunset.
It is good to read the sane address
of Sir Wilfrid Ijuurior in ilraulon, in
which lie scull's at tho fears cntertain-
ed—or, more likely, pretended to bc
entertained—hy various imperial jingoes, that reciprocity will prove a step
toward annexation. — Washington
Times,
The chief justice of Alberta in
dulges in some reflections on the inaccuracies of newspapers. With all
respects it may be mentioned that
the statements of responsible journalists are not more often questioned
or upset than the verdicts of the average judge.—Lady smith Chronicle,
The imbecile who goes out on a
symathetic strike can always be depended upon to go out on a sympathetic drunk.—New Denver Record
The country editor lives longest
and dies happiest, and heaven seems
just i little nearer to the shop than
to any other point on earth. Sucb
a paper draws sustenance from the
grass roots and thrives best when the
editor comes closest to tbo heart of
his subscriber. He must welcome
tbe newborn babe one day, and on
what seems like the morrow he must
describe the babe of yesterday as
tbe bride of unstinted charm and
grace: Every death is close to him,
every success, every promotion in
business, every graduation from the
high school. Clippings from his
paper are found, yellow and faded,
in the family Bible, and each of
them to somebody marks one of the
mountain peaks or deep valleys of
life.—Wichita Beacon.
Taft and the press are the power
behind tbe reciprocity pact, says the
Winnipeg Telegram. Our contem
forgets to except the trust subsidized
press, probably including itself.—
Victoria Times.
From Vancouver comes the periodical wail about the sawmill men
of Washington shipping rough lumber at cost or slightly above cost into the prairie market and taking
away the business of tbo British Columbia mill men. Ws may therefore expect a revival oi the demand
for a turilT on rough lumber. Perhaps tbat is one of tbe planks in the
platform Mr. Borden is to slaud
upon in his fight against reciprocity.
If fo it will hardly be put in a conspicuous place until the western tour
is over.—Edmonton Bulletin.

A CORNER IN FEATHERS
AMUSING TALE OF THE RETURN
FROM SOUTH AFRICA.
The Volunteers Who Robbed a Merchant of His Ostrich Plumes After
the Boer War Proved Too Clever
for the Searchers, But Their Plot
Was Finally Discovered—Then the
Innocent Privates Profited.
Towards the close of the Boer War
• company ol volunteers were camped at Green Point, Cape Town, await,
ing to embark on their homeward
voyage. It was during this temporary stay in Cape Town that the following amusing incident took place.
Every day a number of Jews went
round the camp offering a collection
of curios for sale, which the soldiers
readily bought to take home as pres.
ents. One morning the daredevil ol
the company (a sergeant who had
narrowly missed being reduced to
the ranks on many occasions) went
round the camp and gave the following order: "The general commands
that all goods offered for sale by
hawkers •> this camp shall be confiscated." The command was taken
seriously, as the N.C.O. was on duty
at the tide he gave it.
Presently a hawker came into camp
carrying a Gladstone bag full of
ostrich feathers. He entered one
tent sreiling, and saying "With your
permiry-.ion" knelt'down and opened
the l«g. As he was displaying hia
feathws and talking freely with the
men two crept quietly behind him
with a blanket, and before he wa.
aware of anything he waa trussed
up, a struggling mass of humanity,
in the blanket. The bag and contents
were immediately pounced upon and
carried to another tent by the culprits to divide the spoil. On opening
the bag a great surprise was in store
for them, for ins'.ead of their captive
being an unlawful hawker, as they
supposed, thc contents proved him to
be the representative of one of the
leading firms in Cape Town.
Here the men were in a fix, they
could not go back now, for the man
had got loose from his bonds and
waB searching around for his bag.
Had- he reported his loss fo the officer at once a search would undoubtedly have been made and his bag
found, but he went to his firm, who
reported the case by letter. During
the night a consultation was held by
the men, and it was decided to carry
the thing out to the full extreme, as
it would go hard with the 'persons
who tried to explain matters. Vari-
ous suggestions were given, and it
was decided to throw the bag into
the sea and distribute- the contents.
But how was the feathers to be hidden, for a search was sure to be
made the following morning, and the
company was due to sail in the afternoon? A bright idea struck one of
them, and each took a feather and
thrust it down the barrel of his rifle
and replaced the sight protector.
Early next morning a search was
made whilst the men were on parade,
but without avail. Nothing further
was heard of the matter until the
wagons were packed and all were
ready for marching to the quay. The
march had just be^un when an officer came riding up and thundered
the words, "Halt! Each man take
one kit, open contents on the floor,
and stand by for inspection."
It was amusing to sec the expression on the face of the officer as he
poked about the articles with his
cane. He no doubt thought that if
thc report of the man was true he
would surely find the feathers packed
in snme kit hug at the last moment.
Nothing of an incriminating nature
was found, and the men were allowed
to proceed to the ship.
On arrival at the vessel another
surprise was in store for the men,
for every rifle wus immediately
handed over to the arms room. A
few days Inter, ns the nrmory-ser.
giant was cleaning Ihe rifles, he
came across a leather snugly concealed in one of the rifles. He placed
it back again, thinking it was a new
way which the soldier had thought
of to bring his feathers home safely.
But the next rifle was the snme, and
the next, which urntised bis suspic
ions, and he senl for the officer of
tt* company. All the rifles were
overhauled und aboy.t fifty leathers
found.
The officer wns in a dilemma, for
he dare nnt send them back, still he
did not wish to let the men have
their ill-gotten gains, so he placed a
feather in each of the rifles which
toad not contained anything. On arrival ut the barracks the men pro-
ci'i'il**'! to ialt** the feathers out, but
great wns their consternation fo find
that thc rifle of every man who was
in the plot was empty, whilst those
who had hnd nothing to do with the
affair had a beautiful feather ench.
No doubt many pretty girls aro wearing those feathers now in their hats,
little thinking of t'..j many eventful
episodes which tliose feathers had
passed through.

Paternal Pride
"Your boy 'was just  a  little—er-
wild when he was at college, wusn't
he?"
"Oh! yes, he generally was a little
wild at first. Couldn't get 'em over
th' plate, you know. But he always
steadied down before the game was
over."
The Training Bench
"I have begun   preliminary   practice."
"What do you mean?"
"I go out every day and sit for a
few moments on the bleachers.   Want
to harden myself for these opening
games."
"I'm sure," said the interviewer,
"the public would be interested to
know the secret of your success."
"Well, young man," replied the cap-
tain of industry, "the secret of my
success has been my ability to keep
it a secret?"
"Do you think you can make my
daughter happy?"
"She hns been happy with you,
hasn't she?" rejoined the confident
youth.
"I think so, sir."
"Well, if she. is so easy to please
there ought to-be no difficulty."
Away With Dapreaalon and Melancholy.
—These two evils are the accompaniment
of a disordered stomach and torpid liver
and mean wretchedness to all whom they
visit. The surest and speediest way to
combat them is with Parmelee's Vegetable Pills, which will restore the healthful action of the stomach and bring
relief. Thev have proved their usefulness
in thousands ot cases and will continue
to irlve relief to the suffering who are
wise enough to use them.
This was after the quarrel: "I ean
never forgive you!" she cried. "Last
night you said I was a lobster."
"But you know," she replied, and
her tone was conciliatory, "you know
how dearly I love lobster."
With a glad cry he folded her to his
breast.
"So you are in love, eh?" sneered
the first smoker. "Well, a w6man is
only a woman, but a good cigar is a
smoke."
"My girl is ol rather a panetella
shape," responded the second smoker.
Citing an Exception
"Time is money, you know."
"But I don't know anything of the
kind.   There's young Dinks, who has
plenty of time on his hands, and not
a cent in his pockets."

An Ex-Militant Suffragette.
A unique suffragette who has ceased to be militant, hut who still believes in Mrs. Pankhurst's method*,
visited Canada recently in the person nt Miss Madge Bruce, of Dunbar.
Scotland. In appearance Miss Bruce
is very refined, with a low pitched
voice and a witty, fluent manner ot
speaking, but her address caused her
hearers more than one thrill of surprise. She carries Kr views of tht
equality of the sexes to great lengths.
tor to a mixed audience she calmly
made statements which would have
been calculated to raise a blush in
a meeting for men onlv. What is
more. Miss Bru"» talked in a matter-
of-fact way as though she was doing
nothing out of the ordinary.
As a historian, Miss Bruce would
be very interesting as she gives some
odd interpretations of recent episodes
in England. She says that Lord
Gladstone received a peerage and the
appointment ns representative of the
crown in South Africa, because of
mistakes mude in dealing with Lady
Constance Lytton. That young lady
was arrested for militant tactics, but
as the m°n in the jail could not force
s real live peeress to eat, they allowed her to go nn the pretext that her
heart was weak. Later she wore the
disguise of a seamstress when arrested, and found  that she did  not
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^   receive such lenient treatment. When

and a ceaseless aching in the limbs,
These and other trials afflict girls
and women through the lack of rich,
red blood nature is calling for. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pi'.ls have given the
joy or real robust health to thousands of women who are happy today
because these Pills actually make the
rich, red blood that makes weak ones
well and strong. This statement has
been proven over and over again.
Here is further proof from Mrs. C. J.
Brook, Manitou, Man., who says:
"After a busy term on second class
work, followed only by a short time of
relaxation, and a strenuous two and
a half months normal course, in
March, 1906, I began teaching school.
I had a heavy rural school, with a
large attendance, and consequently a
large number of grades, thus I found
the work a great nervous strain. This
added to the overwork of study, previous to teaching, soon resulted in a
"run down" condition. When vacation time came I did not pay much
attention to my condition as I thought
the holidays would fully restore me,
but as I resumed work again I soon
found this was not the case. One
morning when I came to breakfast
everything reeled before me and I almost fainted away. The lady with
whom I was boarding advised me to
take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. She
always spoke very highly of them,
her daughter having used them with
the most beneficial results following
a severe attack of inflammatory rheumatism. 1 decided to take her advice, and hnd only taken a few boxes
when I began to improve in health—
and such an appetite ns 1 had. I rapidly gained health, my face had a
healthy glow, and I gained in weight.
I have since often recommended Dr.
Williams' Pink Pilla to others who
have used them with equally beneficial results, and I helieve the Pills
to be a standard remedy for the ills
[or which you recommend them."
You can get these Pills from any
medicine dealer or by mail at 50
cents a box or six hoxes for $2.50

Miss Bruce possesses a record ns a
militant suffragette herself. 8he is a
fighter for her sex against the tyran-
nies of man, and on one occasion,
she got up in a court room and, berated her father, who is a magistrate,
because he addressed a young wo-
man in the dock as "prisoner." To
the feminine mmd of his daughter,
this looked like an infringement of
the rule of British justice that every
person is innocent until proved
guilty. Even in a land where yellow
journals are searce Miss Bruce's ac-
tion brought herself and her father
very much into the public eye.
"A Very Ordinary Person."
Mr. Will Crooks, the British Labor
member for Woolwich, was recently
relating some of his experiences during his trip through Canada. "At
Toronto," he said, "I was met by
seven reporters. 'Well, gentlemen,
what do you require?' I asked. 'We
want a few words.' replied one of
them. I hesitated a moment, and
then blurted out, 'Well, gentlemen,
I can only say I think Canada is the
greatest country in the world." 'That
will do nicely.' said the reporter who
acted as spokesman for the party;
'we will fill in the rest.' I got a paper
that evening and read: 'Will Crook'
has arrived. A very ordinary-looking
person, in a very ordinary dress, got
out of the train in a very ordinary
way, and walked up to a very ordinary-looking woman, who was, apparently, hia wife, and, as every Englishman does, he inquired for his luggage. Moreover, he made the ordinary remark about Canada. That waa

A Thomas Hardy Store.
All Interesting little story about
Mr. Thomas Hardy is told in Miss
Lilian Whiting's recently-published
memoir ot Louise Chandler Moulton,
(he poetess.
Mra. Moulton waa at Mr. Hardy'*
house soon alter "Teas" came out,
and she was telling him about a review ' in praise of the book which a
compatriot ol hers had contributed to
The Atlantic Monthly.
"What you say la consolation just
now." remarked Mr. Hardy.
"Why just now?" asked Mrs. Moulton.
"Oh, I dined two nights ago," con
tlnued Mr. Hardy, "at the house ol
a member of Parliament. It was by
way of being a political dinner, but
as Tens' was just out, one and another spoke of it kindly enough.
Finally, one lady two or three seals
away Irom me leaned forward. Her
voice commanded everyone's attention.
'"Well. Mr. Hardy.' ahe said,
'these people are complaining that you
had "less" hanged in the last chanter of your book. That ii not what
I complain of; I complain because
vou did not have all your characters
hanged, for they all deserved it.'"
Mr. Hardy added, "Don't you
think, Mra. Moulton, that after that,
I need consolation from somewhere?"

were known by name and both greeted the judee with a smile. He was
born in L'Orignal in 1820, and hence

Head Hunters' Impressions.
An entirely new viewpoint on London and the English was that of the
Ainu and Formosan head hunters
who recently went over there as
sideshow attractions of the Anglo-
Japanese exhibition. When the
savages returned to Japan bound tor
their homes in Hokkaido and Formosa a Japanese paper gleaned some
interesting impressions from them.
The Formosan savages told their
interviewer in Japan that people had
tried to fool them over in London
when they said that all of the great
buildings there were built by man
and that the steam railways were of
man's devising, No, it was certain
that nobody except some tremendous
god could have built these wonders;
man was too puny a person to make
steel rear its»lf several hundred feet
ahove the earth or go tearing through
the country with the speed of an
arrow.
A note of sadness crept into the
retrospection of the Fonnosans when
they recalled the fact that once they
were taken to a great building where
there were long shelves filled with
human heads and skulls. Now why
was it'that when the Jaapnese prohibited head gathering in Formosa
and punished with death any one
caught with a head in his possession
these English, who called themselves
civilized, should be allowed to have
countless .fine heads in their big
house? Was it fair to the Formosans
to prohibit their pastime of head
hunting yet to allow the custom lo
exist in such a country as England?
The gentle collectors from Formosa
did not think much of the King of
Ensland, who received them 'n
audience by special arrangement with
the directors ol the Japanese exhibit.
Even a small chiel in Formosa would
have a retinue of 60 mon, the savages said, whereas this King of England had only four or five men in
his house, and even they did not look
much like warriors.
A Strenuous Musician.
Music-lovers all over England will
join in congratulating Mr. Henry J.
wood, the well-known conductor of
the Queen's Hall orchestra, on receiving a knighthood. Sir Hvnry was an
Infant prodigy. At nine he waa
organist of St. Mary, Aldermanbury.
Ten years later he had composed an
opera, which he conducted, und when
he was just out of his teens he produced a comic opera. This was shortly after he joined the Roushy Opera
Company as conductor, when he
frequently worked for twelve hours a
day for two guineas a week. "Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse," is his
motto, and with smnll intervals for
meals he often conducts at Queen's
Hall from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m.
How to Clean a Mirror.

CHEEBIM HIM UP.
But Dr. Coulter Could Not Share the
Young Man's Optimism.
Dr. Coulter, the Deputy Postmaster-
General, is noted tor his kindly treatment ot the subordinate clerks and
officials of the Department. Sometimes, however, the unwary, whose
chief duty is trying to shirk their
work, ar.' caught napping. Quite recently one of the clerks who held
down a minor job was promoted to
a higher grade ip the PosUiffloe Department, and so carried away by his
success was he, that throwing discretion to the winds, he begun to turn
up not a 9.30 a.m. but at 10 and 10.30.
Finally one morning the click in the
main tower was tolling eleven when
in strutted "Mr. Man," swinging his
cane, just fresh from his morning
parade on Sparks street. Dr. Coulter
had .been at his desk since eight
o'clock, and as luck would have it,
he noticed the entrance ol his subordinate.
"Good morning, doctor," said the
delinquent, jauntily, "lovely morning, isn't it?
Coulter looked at him lor a moment, and then said: "Why are you
so late?"
"Oh, really, you know, doctor, it
is such a beautiful morning," was the
bland renly of the gilded youth, who
added, ,"I hope you are satisfied
with my services.
"Not a bit of it," growled the doctor, "I am greatly disappointed in
you. What do you mean, sir, by coming in at this hour?"
"Oh, well," was the unexpected reply, "don't be downcast, doctor, the
world is full of disappointments."
It is understood there is a vacancy
now in Class III., subdivision B. of
the Postoffice Department.
Vancouver's Growing Pains.
They are having a wild time in
Vancouver at the present writing.
Vancouver wants to grow, and claims
that weights are being placed on her
head, to stunt her growth.
Near the city of Vancouver is South
Vancouver, a separate municipality,
some 40.000 big, and possessing three
times more acres than Vancouver it-
Bail.. Now it seems that Vancouver
languishes for South Vancouver.
Both parties are enamoured ol each
other, and anxious lor an alliance.
Not long ago, Vancouver got after the
McBride Government to join the
knot. Here is where the tun comes
in. The Legislature refused to grant
a license. It argued paternally that
Vancouver did not have the price lor
matrimony, there being some big
sewage and water problems which
would require settling flrst. In Vancouver up rose Mayor Taylor, who
owns a newspaper. With this weapon he began to lash the McBride
Government. He urges that the refusal of the lawmakers is a political
move aimed in part against him. a
Liberal. He goes further, and classes
the Liberals with the Tories. On the
ground that both these parties are
inimical to the interests of Vancouver, he announces a third party-
Taylor—to fight the annexation issue
to the death. Such a valiant upholder of civic liberties has followers. The
other night, 2,000 citizens of Vancouver, standing en masse, passed a resolution that the live M.P.P.'s representing Vancouver be asked to resign.
■Mayor Taylor has challenged "Napoleon" Bowser, Attorney-General, to
combat; he has, offered to come down
from the mayor's chair and contest
a Vancouver constituency with that
rotund gentleman.—Courier.
Canada'a One Boast.
Most Canadians are r-are of the
love of statistics which characterize
their cousins across the line. They
all know where their native cities
rank in size in the Union, and can
tell as many other interesting facts
as a guide buuk. A man Irom the
United States was recently taking
lunch with a Torontonian and by way
of entertainment he gave facts about
his own town. It had a picture gallery which ranked seventh on the
continent; its park system stood about
fifth, and he told some ot its perfections; there was a spire on one of
the churches which stood well to the
top in height; snd different manufactories were also leading in their special lines. Then he turned to comparing different things in the United
States with corresponding things in
Canada, and the Toronto man found
that he always had to remain silent
when overshadowed because he was
so ignorant of the exact figures.
The talk turned upon railroads, and
the' champion ot Uncle Sam told
some startling facts about the linea
in his country.
At last the Canuck was sure of his
ground. "Well," he remsrked, "your
railroads may be longer, but I leel
sure that ours are just as wide."
