Presentation   to   Retiring
President of Poultry
Written for The Sun by W. A. Cooper.
The terra "dry farming" is a mis-
nouier, tor it must be apparent to all
that without any moisture whatever
farming operations would be futile,
for one of the essentials of all plant
life is moisture. But this term hns
been adopted in districts of light
rainfall to readily distinguish between Those crops that are raised
with irrigation and those raised
without irrigation, and the methods
used by all wbo raise good crops
wbere the rainfall is light, correctly
speaking, do not use dry fanning
methods; but they do use some system of scentiflc soil culture.
To the general public the term
"dry farming" appears to be. very
misleading, and is usually considered to .be some complicated and intricate system that is used only in
districts where nothing will grow
under ordinary methods of farming,
whereas in reality the term was ere
Med by the tanners themselves, and
is a term perfectly understood by.
them; and for the benefit of those
not in the farming '.business, the
definition is as follows:,
Dry Farming—Systems of soil
culture without irrigation, usually
the result of reading and knowledge
gained from the results of intelligent
and individual experiments. It
might also be added that these systems are also very beneficial to the
irrigator when used in conjunction
with irrigation.
Dry farming, or scientific soil culture—call it what you will—is the
one thing ahove all others that, with
irrigation or without irrigation, will
increase the crops, and where irriga
tion is not available, is the one
thing lhat insures the .crops, thnt
knows of no sueh thing as crop fail
ures; and the more intelligently it is
studied and carried out, the greater
are the yields. It is tbe greatest
factor in determining whether profit*
from farming are large or small, nnd
is often the difference between profits
and failure.
. At a meeting of the Grand Forks
Poultry association in A. D. Morrison's store on Tuesday evening T. A.
F. Mackintosh, the retiring president,
was presented with a beautiful gold
locket, appropriately engraved, Mr.
Morrison making the presentation in
a few well chosen words. Mr. Mackintosh, in thanking the association for
the gift, reviewed the good work that
had been done by the society during
the past year. The local association

the province. It has cash surplus of
about 8200 in its treasury.

platform had been arranged to represent a comfortable sifting room. In
the corner a large mantle and fireplace proved to be an easy way of entrance for Santa Claus. Just before
closing the evening's entertainment
Deacon Miller presented to the pastor
and his wife, on behalf of the congregation, a beautiful leather upholstered
oak rocker. K«v. JWr. Wright, in re
plying, referred to the many other

Tha Flathead Chief Triad Twica ta
Recover Hia Beloved Steed and
Twice Ha Tried to Out Him Out ol
| Camp of Blackfeet — Second Attempt Wu Succenful, But Fire
Won Where the Blackfeet Failed.
A century ago the Flatheads, a
powerful race of Indians, lived be-
aide the Columbia River, while their
hereditary foes, the Blackfeet, lived
further inland, and had for years harassed and annoyed them, when they
went on their yearly buffalo hunting
expedition to the plains to the east.
The Flatheads, more by diplomacy
than sheer strength, had been able to
hold their own, until the Blackfeet
secured firearms, and then so grent
havoc had been wrought among't
them, that they were compelled to
make alliances with several smaller
tribes. Thus it was thnt in the (all
of 1835, when I happened along witb
a party of thirty well armed, and we'l
mounted traders, we were heartily
welcomed by 'Bed Feather, Chiel of
the Flatheads, rfnd were invited to
join them in their yearly buffalo hunt.
For some time after we started a
strict watch was kept, but as the time
passed, ami there wns no sign ol the
enemy, the Flatheads. true to their
indolent nnture, relaxed theit strict
camp discipline and rested in a false
security, from which it was impossible to arouse them, until one morning, they found that thirty of their
best horses had been stolen. Then
the camp was all excitement. A dor.-
en councils were held during the dny
Scouting parties were sent out in al!
directions, nnJ dire threats of vengeance made. Nothing new, however, was discovered, and yet no definite action was taken, for Cut
Thumb, the greatest warrior and diplomat of the whole tribe, remained
silent. At last, some of the more impetuous besought him to let them at-
tatk the Blackfeet' at once, bnt he
shook his hend and said, "Not yet,
not yet. The Blackfeet will be expect
ing us and be on their guard. We
will smoke the pipe of peace, and
.then "
Accordingly representatives wen
aent to confer with the Blackfeet and
appoint a place where the matter in
dispute could be talked over, and
the pipe of peace smoked. The Blackfeet seemed very willing to confer on
the matter, and a time and place ol
meeting were agreed upon.
On the day appointed, the Blackfeet were the first at the rendezvous.
and stood quietly awaiting the Flat
heads. Cut Thumb, as peacemaker,
soon appeared leading the way. He
was attended by the pipe-bearer and
a varlct who carried the medicine
bag. Next came Red Feather, tha
Chief of tlie Flatheads, followed hy
myself, the leader of the fui-trader.
(representing the native and allie!
strength). Following us came the
warriors, fretting their steeds to make
them show off to the best advantage,
and give the impression of great
Grave and formal were the groetimr.
between the two chiefs and their war-
riors, after which the pipe of peace
was passed around, and many expres
•ions ot friendship indulged in.
lengthy orations were delivered by
members of both sides, which if they
lacked in polish made up for it in
force. Red Feather first told of the
many grievances of the Flatheads
He gave a short review ol the past,
and ended witli their latest grievance,
the loss ol the horses. The chief ol
the Blackfeet responded by telling of
all the losses they had suffered at
the hands of the Flatheads. Many
lives had been lost, and not only that,
disease hail visited them through the
inpaiitiitii.ua of Cut Thumb, and many
of their number were dying. He ended by declaring that they had not
stolen the horses, although some .if
his warriors were in plain view,
mounted on the stolen animals.
Both parties pretended to have implicit confidence in all the other said
and listened with tho utmost attention, and unmoved countenances. A
lew more formal rites were observed
and then the warriors of both tribes
mounted their horses and rode away.
Just three days later, Red Feather
declared his intention of making an
attempt to recover the horses, ami
also the Black, a very beautiful horse
Deiongmg to tne cmet ot tne niacs-
feet, which he had greatly admired
on the day of the peace conference.
Mounted on the swiftest horse belonging to the tribe, and accompanied
by his aon-in-Iaw, he set out for the
camp of the Blackfeet, while the rest
of the men went hunting, for we were
now in the buffalo country. One, two,
three days passed and there was no
■ sign of Red Feather. At nearly sunset 61 the fourth day we saw a cloud
of dust in the distance which gradually grew larger, and soon we could
distinguish Red Feather and his sen-
in-law, driving a band of horses. At
they came nearer, we saw that tha
horses were flecked with toam. and
seemed almost exhausted. The Indians, however, were urging them
forward and calling to them with that
strange cry used only by Indians, but.
tc which horses ever respond. It
seemed to penetrate their exhausted
bodies and reach the spirit beyond,
telling of some strange bond between
man and beast1 which made them at
their bidding move their unpromising
lags at most surprising speed. Pre*
ently the run was over and the pair
with many grunts of satisfaction gave
an account of their trip.
They had not seen any trace of the
enemy until noon of the third day,
when they came upon a camp of tha
Blackfeet not half a mile distant
jitey waited until nightfall and then
crept up to It. A drove of horses
were tethered nearby, but to their
chagrin they found that Black wa"
not there. Back to the camp they
went and found the horse tethered
to two sleeping warriors. While Red
Feather was creeping up to cut the
thong that held the horse the guar-
ifian moved in his sleep nnd deeming the many better than the one he
crept away.
In the early morning the Blackfeet
discovered their loss and started in
pursuit. Red Feather had too much
the advantage, however, and easily
left his pursuers behind, and brought
all the horses safe to camp.
About a month had passed when
Red Feather again grew restless an*
unable to curb his longing for th*
Black; so accompanied by his son
in-law he set out for the camp of the
Blackfeet. Almost a week had passed and. there was no sign of him
when one evening a solitary rider was
seen approaching the camp. Ther-j
was something in his attitude thnt
chilled the wntchers when the son-in
law rode into the camp and dismounting said, "The great, the kind brave,
is no more." Then from all side*
rose cries nf grief and lamentatijns
filled the air.
They had found the Blackfeet camp
unguarded and surrounded by a large
number of horses, but not the Black
Red Feather svore this time he would
not return without him, sft: when
night came he crept right in where
the chief lay asleep with the Black's
tether in his hand. It seemed an
impossible task to get the horse, but
Red Feather wes not to be defeated
when so near tbe coveted prise, He
cut the rope. Tbe chief stirred an.'
softly calletl the Black. The rope lav
loose in his bend. He opened hi'
eves suspiciously and then Red Fea
ther knew it would be a race for life
With one bound he was on the «tnrt
led Black and urging him away from
the eamp.
Shouts and imnrecnti »is sounded
through the morning air. Almost immediate a do*en horsemen were in
hot pursuit. Red eFat'ier wns not
afraid, he knew the Black could easily
outdistance them all. On he rode.
Daylight broke, nnd a stiff breeie
sprang up, but still the Blackfeet pu'
sued, as if lonth to give up. At last
Red Feather, when on t'.e top of r.
small knoll, turned the Black, facing
his pursuers, and aa if to defy them,
stood for several^seconds, silhouetted
ngninst the rising sun. 1'hat stop
cost him his life. In a lew second-
n smoke rose from the dry prairie
grass. The breeze fanned it to a luty.
and soon n fire was sweeping over
the prairie too fast (or even tho
Red Feather's son-in-law reached
an alkaline plain, where alone there
was safety, and to this Red Feather
urged ■-' Black, but all in vain. The
fire gained at every leap. The smoke
choked tliem, and the dull roar of the
flames s> untied nearer and neater
Red Feather whisoered to the llla.'k.
"We must win, Black, we must win
Not because we are afraid of death
but we don't want the Blackfeet tc
beat us." The Black responded nob

Zam-Buk Once Again the Only Curel
Mr. H. Allison, of 457 King Street,
London, Ont., says: "While a member of the East Kent Division Football Team, and during a rough and
exciting game of football. I fell on
the hard gravel, sustaining a badly-
lacerated knee. This required prompt
medical attendance, as s^nd and gravel filled, the open wound, which was
very painful and sore.
"For several weeks the doctor treated my injury, and it was thought to
be well healed over; but no sooner
had I begun to move about than the
skin broke, and I, suffered more than
at first. For seven long weeks I was
actually laid up. It tnen developed
into a running sore, and I was alarmed for fear the result might be a permanently stiff knee. The doctor's
treatment failed to heal the wound,
so 1 procured a supplyvof Zam-Buk.
"It was almost magical in its effect
on the sore. The discharging soon'
ceased. The soreness and pains were
banished, and perseverance with Zam-
Buk made the badly-lacerated knee an
good and firm ns ever. Zam-Buk has
no equal in clearing und healing open
wounds, and I recommend it to all
athletes and sportsmen."
Zam-Buk will also be found a sure-
cure for cold sores, chapped hands,
frost bite, ulcers, ecsema, blood-poison, varicose sores, piles, scalp sores,
ringworm inflamed patches babies'

Just What Canada Can Da With Her
Annual Wheat Output.
A rervnt issue of the Canadian
Farm contains an interesting computation is tn the bread p»«sibilities
of Canada's wheat crop. The article
runs thus:
"Manitoba. Alberta and Saskatchewan produced last year almost 119.-
300,000 bushels of wheat. It takes
five bushels of wheat to make a barrel of flour. Therefore that wheat
:rop is equivalent to 23.8nO.nO> barrels of flour. Each barrel of .lour
makes 180 loaves of bread, weighing
one and one-half pounds each. That
flour, therefore, would mnke -t.iPt •
000,000 loaves of bread, lt is estimated that each person eats, nn an
average, about 13Q of such loaves in
a year. Finally, then, that amount
of flour would keep almost 33.000,000
people in bread for a year. And as
Canada's population is probably un*
der 8,000,000. Canada could hav«
spared bread last year fnr _15.fl00.00ll
people, or more than halt the United
Kingdom's population of between
45.000.000 and 46,000.000. Not onlv
would Canada's wheat crop of last
year have given bread to so many
millions; the by-product of that great
wheal crop would feed 212.000 horses
for a year.
"In figuring out the foregoing no
account has been taken of the wheat
rrndveed in the other provinces of
Canada Were that added, it would
h* seen that Canada could keep con.
sidernbly more people of the Old
land in bread than has been stated.
Canada's wheat-growing belt i« four
tim-s the sine of the United States,
nnd. whereas the days of the prominence of the United States as a wheat
exporting country are done. Canada
is rapidly coming to the front In exporting. Western Canada's wheat
production is five times what it wns
t"n years ago. And Canada has sold
Great Britain $264,925,420 worth of
?rnin in ten years.
Canada ia certainly making pro
pr»ss in wheat production, and If immigration continues at its present
rate,. Professor Mayor's famous pes
simistic report to the British Boarc
of Trade will look like a last year's
editorial in a party newspaper."

An Editorial Reply Which Waa Sharp
and Beyond the Libel Law.
There are a great many varieties of
the "retort courteous,", even though
no one has ever taken the trouble tu
classify them. The repartee of th*
cultured wit is often so subtle that
it appears pointless to the man whose
methods are those of a heavy-weight.
The retort of the skilled Parliamentarian differs greatly from that of tha
?releasor in an academic debate,
here are many other typea, but
standing all alone in a place by itself
is the retort of the newspaper of the
small town.
A very good example of the way In
which these editors go for one another
appeared a short time ago in an Ontario paper. It was a weekly published in one of those small towns which
has a rival, community a few milea
away. They hate one another with a
deadly enmity, but for the sake ol
economy they occasionally work together and use the same electric power house and the same private telephone system. It is unnecessary to
add that the town which gets its telephone service from the other village
spends considerable time passing criticisms upon their treatment and tha
management ol the company. TH*
bickerings over these things have become chronic.
One week the paper came out with
an article which occupied the most
conspicuous portion of the front page
and gave the telephone service a severe raking over the coals. The editor had a personal grievance which
he made the text of his editorial. His
wife had been left at home alone oni
evening, and a drunken man got on
tho verandah by mistake. The lady
attempted to call the police but could
not get "central." In lurid colors and
with emotional ability which characterises a country newspaper, the editor described his wife's state of mind.
He proved that the telephofft -company wns responsible for the pitiful
condition' of nervousness tn which tha
<a.'y was eventually found.
lt was confidently expected that the
paper in the neighboring town would
come back with an attack upon the
electric light system. The next issue
was eagerly secured, but it contained
only one short reference to the incident, printed in large letters. The editor remarked, "We are greatly surprised that .drs. Scribe should be disturbed by the sound of • drunken man
on her verandah."
A Bard at Eighty-One.
St. Stanley Larkin of Moose Jaw has
made public some interesting facts.
He has nn uncle in England, eighty-
one years of age, and a bard with
royal recognition. Old Mr. Larkin
was mnch affected by the death ol
King Edward. He sat down and expressed his condolence in verse. Tha
poetic tribute was widely quoted in
(Edward, the Great Peacemaker."
Thus will he e'er be known.
Of realms on which the sun ne'er seta
The King of peace he shone.
Then raise the Royal Standard,
Unfurl it to the breen,
'The o'ive branch' its message.
To all the lands and seas.
And may the Almighty Ruler,
Whom kings and realms adore,
To our great noble Edward.
Grant peace lor evermore."
Mr. Larkin. St., received the lolloping letter Irom Buckingham Palace:
"Miss Knollys is commanded by
Queen Alexandra to thank Mr.
Larkin lor his kind sympathy and
touching tribute."
Oeeama 'and tha Awakening.
It waa a custom among Canadian
Indians, says' a contributor to Tha
Canadian Magaiine, when they
dreamed ol receiving a lavor Irom another to apply to him for it fulfill*
rtient, end whenever possible the conditions of the dream were complied
A chief one morning came to Sir
William Johnson, then governor,
aud told him that he had dreamel
that His Excellency had made him a
present ol the suit of regimentals
whicli he wore.
The governor immediately agreed to
make the present asked for, but as
the chiel was about to leave told him
that he also had had a dream to the
effect that the chief had given him a
certain large tract of land ol his.
The chief was silent a moment.
"Well, you shall have it," he then
said, "but, il you please, Sir William,
we will not dream any more."
Might Have Been Worse.
A sad-faced editor, with Iringes on
the bottom of hia trousers, and tha
wind singing mournfully through his
whiskers, sat in his sanctum thinking
-thinking. Presently a shadow tall
across the room and a shrill voico
demanded to know if he was the editor. "Yes, sir," said he, with a look
ot alarm. The owner ol the vole*
mopped the floor with the editor, and
went his way. "Thank heaven I" eg-
claimed the editor, after he had gathered together the wreck ol his former
self and had straightened up the furniture. "Lite is still worth living. I expected h* would tell me to stop hia

Kidneys Wrong?	
if they are you are in danger.
When through weakness or disease
the kidneys fail to filter the impurities from tlie blood, trouble
comes at once. Backache, Rheumatism, Sciatica, Gravel, Diabetes, Gall Stones nnd tlie deadly
Bright's Disease are some of tlie
results of neglected kidneys. Dr.
Morse's Indian Root Pills contain
11 most effective diuretic which

The news of the resignation
of .J. .A. McCullum as city
clerk owing to failing health
will lie received witli ;i feeling
of genuine regret liy every
citizen of Grand Forks. Air.
McCalluin has held ollico for
twelve years, and during tliat
time has discharged his duties
with marked ability anil to tlie
entire satisfaction of tlie ratepayers and the various civic
governments under whose regime he has served the city.
The satisfactory condition ol'
the city finances today is
largely due to his wise counsel, and for this the citizens
owe him a debt of gratitude
whicli they can never repay.
The Sun hopes that a change
of occupation will completely
restore Mr. McCallum's health
and that he arid his estimable
family will continue to make
Grand Forks their home. In
expressing this hope we feel
that we are but voicing the
sentiment of tlie people ofthe
On Monday next candidates
for mayor, aldermen and three
school trustees are to be nominated, and a poll, if required,
will be taken on the following Thursday. Up to date
very little interest has been
taken in the approaching election, and as no names have
been mentioned in connection
with the various offices, it is
impossible to forecast the composition of the lilll city government. A strong and representative city council is
needed for the coining year.
At the outset the board will
be called upon to select anew
city clerk, a task whicli will
require considerable discrimination, because a satisfactory
performance of most of tlie
city's work and business depends on the good judgment
and efficiency of this ollieial.
With a new clerk and a new
council, it must be apparent
to every ratepayer that the
best mayoralty and aldermanic
material in the city must be
called into the next city government if the present nigh
financial standing of the municipality i.s to be maintained.
It is the duty of every citizen
to see that none but men of
integrity and sound judgment
are nominated and elected.
to the ratepayers. But if Phe
right person cannot bo found
among the applicants, and he
is to be found in the eity, there
is no reason why the council
should not appoint him, provided he is capable and willing to fill the otlice, whether
he has applied for the position
or not.
The most important event
next week will be the nominations for city officers, which
take place at the city hall at
12 o'clock noon on Monday.
Many a man who could not
have secured six votes at the
polls has been elected by acclamation.
Speaking as a weather
prophet, we hazard the prediction that the Sun will soon
become warm enough to melt
the thin ice on which a number of people are walking.
Joshua Pickleweight has
docided not to run for mayor.
The city is entitled to congratulations.
Most of the people who
"swore off" last Saturday night
regretted their rash action on
Sunday morning.
Not a Candidate
Editor Evening Sun.
Dkak Sir;—To avoid any
misunderstanding as to my
proposed action this coming
election, I wish to state emphatically that I am not a
candidate for the mayoralty.
Tt will bc impossible for me to
give tho time necessary for the
conduct of the city business
this coming year. I wish to
thank the aldermen of the
outgoing council, the ratepayers and the citizens generally for the kind support
which they have given mc
during the year just closing.
Wishing all our citizens a
happy and prosperous New
Year, I am yours very truly,
Fred Clark.

We go to all parts of the world for the wonderful ingredients of Psychine (pronounced Si-keen).   We combine

and give it to you to try.

''They might," replied the sceptical

For nearly the third ot a century we
have known what Psychine will de.
We have known It to cure hundreds ot
thousands ln that time, of some of the
most desperate cases of disease known
to medical science.
We have received thousands of unsolicited testimonials, which 'we will

It strengthens and Increases the
white corpuscles of the blood—-the
phagocytes ihe policemen or scavenger? of Ihe blood.
These white corpuscles of the blood,
when strong enough, destroy ovary

It these whit* corpuscles are not In
sulllcieat numbers or are not sufficiently strong, then these disease germs
destroy tbem and disease holds the
body. That's the cause of nearly every
disease that afflicts the human race.
For years, centuries, In fact, lt has
been recognised that herbs are the most
effective treatment for disease.
It Is only within recent times that
we have been able to tell Just why they
were so effective.
Because certain ot them Increased

These herbs are employed ln compounding Psychine.
We go all over this world to obtain

will restore health and build vitality as
no other preparation will.

H«w th* British Soldier Dtala With
Nowhere ia there such an Empire
chain aa that in which every link
la a British "Tommy." Wherefore
the latter is an expert on the spy,
and, reading of the recent Portsmouth affair, will smile a -little indulgently, then seek an obscure nook
—not the sentry-box—and settle down
to "watch with hif ears."
It is an Indian hill-station; rifle
thieves are on the prowl. Or a Pathan
spy. The two hours' term of duty is
like eternity; the British "Tommy"
has become a tamarisk—a tamarisk
with ever-peering eyes.
The bull frog's incessant croak ia
interrupted by the tiny tinkle of s
stone in a ean hung on barbed wire.
Immediately, Something sinuous and
shiny shows on the spot where an
inexperienced, recruit might have
stood; a shuffle—it haa gone. And
in a twinkling the sentry stands,
with fixed bayonet, imprisoning the
Pathan in the sentry box.
Not. that dramatic turning oi the
tables, but the simultaneous, bloodcurdling shriek, "Gy-ar-rd, t'n out!"
sends a quiver into the very marrow
ol the native's bones, and in less
than sixty seconds he is forced by
the business ends of bayonet, held in
sturdy British hands, through the
guard-room door.
Locked in the magatine yard ol a
Mediterranean station, a lew years
ago, the sentry feared his two hours
were lengtbening into three; hia
shouts through the gate brought no
response. Fighting his overpowering
inclination to doze, he was soon
startled by a rustle.
With a brisk, staccato challenge,'
he waited, with his bayonet at the
"Charge." The hesitation, and then
the defiant, strange-voiced "Frent!"
—instead ol the usual "Relief!"—put
him on his guard. Waiting in the
shadow, he saw two masked natives
enter, knives glinting in their hands.
In a moment he had struck one to
earth with the butt of his rifle, and
then swiftly pinind tlie other with
his bayonet. Tb? ruards were discovered drugged f.--_i chloroform, administered whilst ihey slept: papers
found on the spies left no doubt as
to the intended fate of the magazine
—and of tbe unsuspecting sentry
within it!
Deliberate intention of spying has
occasionally been traced to foreigners
in our ranks. With some ability as
actor and linguist, the unscrupulous
alien has little difficulty in entering

There is still surviving in London,
Ont., a gentleman who recalls a great
oil fake that carried Uie western city
by storm many years ago. He. is Mr.
lames Egan, a prominent citizen,
who ia eighty-two yeara old,
"It was one ol the mott curious
experiences that London ever hud,"
says Mr. Egan. "The report went
out that oil had been discovered near
ly opposite Woodland cemetery. It
seemed aa il th», whole oi London
waa down there the first Sunda)
afternoon alter the story got out. In
holes in the Around there seemed tc
be no doubt that there was oil. People soaked their handkerchiefs iu it
and took them home that way ai
souvenirs. Champagne suppers and
other celebrations helped the enthusiasm, and then the whole thing was
shown up as a straight lake. It war
a BWindle, though it didn't get fat
enough lor anybody to be seriously
bitten. Some Yankees had come
over, bored holes, loaded them with
petroleum and waited ior results.
Happily tor London, the results
didn't materialize aa they had hoped
lor. One result, however, was extensive boring lor oil, the outcome bf
which was to strike some sulphui
wells, including the wells at the foot
ol Dundas street, and others on A de-
aide street and in Petersville, now
tV'est London. The big swindle, however, was most elaborate in its plans
Geologists were brought here to lecture who declared that London waa

and that boring almoat anywhere
would reach it. Fakes were not so
common then, as nowadays, and thai

I ever saw petroleum used lor light,

English Mountaineer and Swiss Quids
Admits It Is To* Much Fer Him.
The mountain climber is the only
one real aerial artists. Your aviator
is not an artist—he doesn't work. The
lank-haired chap who occasionally deluges editorial desks with beribboned
manuscripts only imagines that his
{ cranium is in the clouds. Really, the
rustling femme charmante who strives
for the high notes in the social scale
approaches more to the climber.
Mr. A. L. Mumm, an Englishman,
lately has been trying some high performing in the West at Yellowhead
Pass out Rocky Mountain way. He
.has attempted to foot it up Mount
Robson, whose peak pokes its head into the misty vapors seventeen thousand, five hundred leet above terra
firma. That's somewhat harder than
picking your way upstairs a» .wo a.m.
—plus. The mountain climber has no
engine to pump him up. He just digs
his heels in the mud and climbs every
step ol the way. And when he gets
there, and looks down at the ants
and their mole hills! Monarch of all
he surveys is your mountain climber
in hackneyed phraseology. With head
on the dome of heaven, he is statesman and poet rolled into one.
Mr. Mumm- did not conquer Robson.
He started out there in July, and tor
two months has been waiting lor the
snow to melt on the side ot the
monster. The slides on Robson frightened even his Swiss guide. Mumm
has just returned to Edmonton and
says tbat Robson is too much lor
him. He has given the project considerable of his time. Last year he
and L. M. Amery, Earl Grey's journalistic Iriend, went out to Robson in
August. They got into a snow storm
arid slide reminiscent ol the glacial
epoch. Messrs. Mumm and Amery
climbed into their winter underwear
and went home.   Says Mumm:
"I think that Robson is a peak that
will never be climbed very often.'
Robson bas been captured once. A
mild, retired clergyman, Rev. A. Kinney, and packer Phillips of the
G.T.P. got to the top—nearly dropping
their lives. The jaunt up and back
took them two whole days.
Climber Mumm has done some toll
work in the Alps. In the Rockiest,

feet made this summer on a neighboring hill oi RobBon's.

of December Snd:
Arranged at periods of the year
most suited for tbe display of produce fi'inn speeiul groups nf colonies,
tlie shown nf fruit held hy the Royal
HoHiculturfcl society have steadily
increased iu importance since their
inauguration in 1904. Tlie principal
exhibits at the present show are the
applss of British Colombia and New
Brunswick and the general produce
from 'he West Indies. South Africa
is represenled by a small collection of
liqueurs'and preserves from tbe Cape
and- samples of tea from Natal.
The featuro of tiie show is the collection of British Columbia apples,
which occupies two thirds of the total
available space in the hall. This
group includes over 1100 cases of apples, or more than twenty tons uf
fruit, and recognizing its Importance
as undoubtedly the finest collection of
apples that baa been staged here, the
lioyal Horticultural society have ordered the Hogg medal iu be struck in
gold for tlie first time and awarded to
the. British Columbia government.
The varieties included scarcely exceeded a dozen, for as few sorts are grown
as possible consistent with meeting
the various demands for season, color,
flavor, and size. Blenheim Orange
nnd Ribston Pippins were represented
by a few cases, but in the main the
English varieties have been superseded by the King of Tompkins County, King, Northern Spy, Spitzenberg,
Baldwin, Jonathan, Fullawatar, Hub-
bardston's Nonsuch, and a few others.
Tlie fruit appeared to be entirely free
from scab or blemish, which, although
in part due to tlie newness of tbe
region in which it is grown, may be
attributed chiefly to the stringent
regulations for the government deal
ing with the inspection and spraying
of orchards. Tbe grading and packing had been carried out with uniform
excellence. A provincial law prescribes the bushel as tbe standard
cubic measure, and the packing cases
uniformly measure 10in.xllin.x20in.
Four grades of fruit are recognized, of
which the lowest is used for preserves,
but only first-grade fruit is exhibited.
British Columbia's appeal, however, is
for men and not for markets. Rapid
as haa been the extension of fruit
farming since Lord Aberdeen's ex
penments, the production is at present insufficient to meet the home demand, and British Columbian fruit
does not reach the English market.

The Breatheable Remedy for Catarrh.
Tlie rational way to combat catarrh
isthe Hyomei way, viz., by breathing.
Scientists for years have been agreed
on this point, but failed to get an antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs and not destroy the tissues of
the membrane at the same time, until the diaoovery of Hyomei (pronounced High-o-me.).
Hyomei is the most powerful yet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through the inhaler over the inflamed
and germ-ridden membrane four or
five times a day, and in a few days the
germs will disappear.
A complete Hyomei outfit, including the inhaler, costs $1.00, and extra
bottles, if afterwards needed, cost but
50 cent. Obtainable from your druggist or postpaid from the R. T. Booth
Co., Ltd., Fort Erie, Ont. Hyomei
is guaranteed to cure asthma, croup,
sore throat, coughs, colds or grip or
refund your money back. Sold and
