Agreement for Electric Power Now Ready for
Signatures
Tbe agreement between tbe Cascade Water Power & Light company
and the ranchers of tbe valley for
electric power for irrigating and light
purposes haa now been drafted, and
tbe document is ready for the inspection and signatures of all parties
interested. The committee having
the matter in charge is desirous that
all farmers wbo intends to purchase power should peruse the
agreement, and by callings ou tbe
chairman, W. A. Cooper, they will
be afforded an opportunity of doing ao. (
C. N. Beebe, of Vancouver, representing tbe Canadian Westinghouse company, and Mr. Raymond,
representing the United Iron Works,
of Oakland, Cal., bave been in the
city this week, and have furnished
the irrigation committee with quotations on complete pumping plants.
Their prices are slightly lower than
tbe estimates given by Mr. Cooper
at the irrigation meeting lost week.
A car containing 150,000 seedlings
arrived in the city this week over
the Qreat Northern for the Grand
Forks Orchard & Nursery company.
Tbe Block was imported from
France, and was shipped via Vancouver, where it was fumigated.
Three tirades of Apples
The Northwest Fruit Growers' association, in session at Walla Walla
this week, decided that three grades
of apples are to be packed in the
the northwest hereafter, to be known
us Extra Fancy, Standard and "C."
It was only after a bard day's fight
that this was decided, however,
many nf the delegates wanting hut
two grades, some wanting different
names, and some wanting us many
as four grades. Tbe question nf establishing a selling agency along the
lines of the California Fruit Exchange was also discussed.
onstrations and exhibits which are
to be the feature of this farm train
are now being arranged by Miss
Mackay, bead of the college domestic science department.
Demonstration Farm Train
In response to an urgent invitation fro-ii the minister of agriculture of llritish Columbia, the farm
demonstration train which the
Washington State college, in conjunct ion with the Great Northern, is
to operate over the Spokane Falls &
Northern, will spend one day in the
British Columbia towns. The department of agriculture of the province
will assist in the work on foreign
soil, sending men from the department nt Victoria. The trip extends
from March 'ii to April ill), inclusive, and the list of towns numbers i
il. The linal dates and hours arc;
being arranged by Superintendent!
Ashliy and tbe railroad officials.
The list of towns in which the farm,
special will stop follows: Deer!
Park, Clayton, Loon Lake, Spring-
dale, Valley, Chewelah, Addy, Colville, Meyers Falls, Fruilvale, Sal-1
mo, Ymir, Nelson, Northport, Boss-
burg, Marcus, Orient, Grand Forks,

Electricity to Push Plants
The use ol electricity on the farm
is by no means a new departure iu
thiB country, where in the more up-
to-date establishments it has been
employed for years'in place of the
"hired man." The cows are milked,
the hay is mown, the milk is
churned, the mill is driven and u
thousand and one ordinary choreB
are all performed by electricity;
But it is only recently that "harnessed lightning" haB been successfully employed to stimulate and im
prove the actual growth of crops
and vegetables, although scientists
have been experimenting with it in
this country and in Europe foi
many years.
Thirty years ago the work was begun by Prolessor I.emstrom,s Dane,
and since then a number of able
men have turned their attention to
tbe subject. Sir Oliver Lodge, the
great English scientist, declared his
faith in the proposition, and it came
to be generally admitted that crops
could be forced by means of elec
ricity although the most satisfac
tory method of applying it was still
to be ascertained.
Now comeB Professor Daniel Ber
thelot, professor of physics at the
High School of Pharmacy, Paris,
with an astonishing report ol- what
he has achieved in agriculture by
means of electric stimulation of
plants and crons.
Professor Berthelot has grown
beans, turnups, potatoes, carrots,
cabbages, celery, lettuce and in fact
most every variety of farm product
on his electric farm at Meudon, and
in every instance the product was
not only larger than that grown
grown without the aid of electricity,
but took less time to mature. An
electric Current is run through the
earth ind by means of stanchions,
Irom which a wire netting is sua
pended above the growing plant, the
air is electrified too. In this way
hoth of the elements Irom which
the plant derives its nutriiion are
subjected to electrical influence, and
the effect is seen in the comparative
experiments conducted by the professor.
In one case two lots ol French
beans were planted under exactly
similar conditions, except that one
was subjected to the electrical treatment, while the other was allowed to
sprout in thc ordinary manner. The
beans stimulated by electricity were
considerably more developed than
those grown in the ordinary way.
In a similar manner, although on
a more elaborate scale, the prolessor
applied electricity to hii turnips aud
potatoes, with equally satisfootory
results.
To produce these results, Professor Berthelot vses an electric plant
built upon a truck, so that it may
readily be transported from place to
place wherever it is needed.

DAIRY CONTESTS
Provincial Association Places
Small and Large Producers
on Equal Footing
Editor Evening Sun.
VicrouiA, March 1.—At a recent
meeting of the British Columbia
Dairymen's association the directors
decided to divide the farm dairy
competition,which has already been
in progress for one year, into two
eliiBses, in order that a nuinbei of
our smaller dairymen in the province may have a chance lo compete
for the cup, medals and honors and
not be compelled to compete against
the larger dairies in the province,
thus giving the small man an* equal
chance with the large one. In this
matter the directors nre making arrangements for a cup, the name of
which will be published later, but
one which will be of eqtwl importance to that of the larger trophy
given by the provincial government.
They are also giving three medals
corresponding witb those of the
larger dairies.
Tbe division of the competition
into two lots is as follows: Those
having five to fifteen cows milking
ind the large dairies, those having
over fifteen cows milking. ThiB division should induce a larger number of our dairymen in the province
to enter in this competition. All
the expense that it requires is that
they be members ofthe British Columbia Dairymen's association and
hold themselves open for two inspections per year by such judges as
may be appointed by the association.
For fuller particulars and entrance
forms apply to the secretary of the
British Columbia Dairymen's association, Victoria.

Midway Coal
Dusky diamonds, says the Inland
Herald, will be dug all tbe year
'round for many years in the prop-
eity of the Midway Coal & Coke
coinpany, by the calcution of the
operators, it having been lound thut
the estate is underlaid with nine
seams, each of wbich prpmises a
large tonnage und some of which
promise a tonnage that appears to be
almost inexhaustible.
The Midway Cnul & Coke company iB the last born of corporations
that have acquired a slice of the
carbon belt marking the British Col
umbia side of the international line
for twelve miles, ll possessions,
comprised ot .'120 surface ucres anil
;5'J00 acres in addition on wbich
mineral rights are held, lie between
and near the properties of the Meyers Creek Coal & Coke coinpany and
tho Boundary Miniug it Exploration company, scenes of energetic
development.
High grade bituminous coal is
found in the upper seams and u
.'emi-nnthracite at depth. Free from
sulphur and iron it yields no clinkers. Its coking qualities are described aB excellent and the development of a high grade blacksmith
carbon, sucb as found in Pennsylvania, is anticipated. Having
physical conditions like its better
developed neighbors, the Midway is
expected to become equally as responsive. It has been examined by
11. E. Haven ol London, S. Pickel
matin of New York, Archibald Burnett of the British Columbia Copper
company, and Thomas L. Brophy
of Spokane, who are reported to
have gathered favorable impressions
of its possibilities.
Among tliose identified with the
company are W. F. Boeltcher. presi

A. H. Noyes, secretary; D. H. McLean, treasurer, of Spokane, who
with Fred KeiBer, of Wenatehee, are
directors. The company is capitalized for 1,500,000 shares, having a
par value of 151 each.
Pure Food Inspector
Thos. Parker, inspector of weights
and measures for the electoral dis
U'ictB of Yale, Cariboo and Kootenay, was in the city on Tuesday.
Mr. Parker has received notification
from the department of inland revenue that he has been apeointed
pure food inspector under the Do
minion Adulteration act. His new
duties will be to take samples of any
kind ol Iood that iB alleged to be
impure, to bave an analysis made,
and where necessary to institute
prosecutions under the act. The
statute in question has been in force
for some time, but bas not previously been actively enforced in this
district.
Married at Chilliwack
The marriage of Miss t&uby Henderson, daughter of J. C. Hender
son, Young road, to George S. Hen
clerson, pure food inspector, Seattle,
wus one of the pleasing social events
of last week that caused more than
u passing flutter of excitement and
a becoming air of importance witb
almost every member of the fair sex
in the city. The marriage, which
was solemnized in Cooke's church
by Bev. lt. J. Douglas, took place at
5:30 o'clock in the afternoon of St.
Valentine's day. The church in
preparation for the event had been
previously tastefully decorated with
evergreens and violets by the young
lady friends of lhe bride. A pretty
arch suspending a beautiful wedding
hell formed a dainty bower within
whicb the vows were taken and the
contract selemnized. The bride,
who was given away by her futher,
looked charming in a gown ot white
pongee silk with veil and orange,
and carrying a bouquet ol cream
roses. Sbe was attended by her sister, Miss Katy Henderson, who
looked pretty in a gown ot pale blue
bengoline anil hat ol lace, and enr
ried a bouquet of pink carnations.
The groom was supported by his
brother, Herbert H. Henderson, of
(irand Forks. The ceremony wus
witnessed by a large circle of friends
and relatives with whom the bride
is unusually popular The most

Good Ice, Music and Costumes Were the Leading
Features
The masquerade carnival at the
Grand Forks skating rink on Tuesday evening was not as liberally
patronized as the occasion merited.
The waning interest in the sport
was doubtless due to the lateness of
tbe season, everybody having had a
satiety of this class of entertainment.
The fact that it was gotten up on
short notice, giving very little
time for the preparation of costumes,
may also have accounted for the absence of many who usually participate in these gaieties. The ice,
however, was in splendid condition,
and those present had an enjoyable
time. Although there were many
good costumes, they were not as pretentious as those seen at the carnival a month ago. This fact undoubtedly accounts for the fact that
The Sun mun butted in on the prize
list. The Grand Korks band en«
livened the occasion by furnishing
its castomaay high standard music.
The following were the prize winners'.
Best lady's costume, prize #5.00,
won by Miss M. Armstrong.
Best gentleman's costume, prize
So.00, won hy G. A. Evans.
Best girl's costume, prize $2.50,
won by Ida Gaw.
Best boy's costume, prize 82.50,
won by Oswald Fraser.
Best sustained original costume,
prize 86.00, won by Messrs. Mercer
and Boland, as the Gold Dust twins.
Mrs. Watts and Mr. and Mrs.
Tweddle acted as judges.
May Hear Chevalier
There is a possibility that England's greatest character actor, Albert Chevalier, may make a limited
tour of western Canada this spring
under the management of Frederick
Shipman. Three years ago Mr.
Shipman made a special trip to
London lor the express purposes of
arranging with Chevalier for a Canadian tour, but tbe terms demanded
by tbe famous impersonator were,
jn Mr. Shipmun's opinion, prohibitive for Canada, so the tour was
abandoned. Since that time, however, the Melha tour through Canada has been accomplished, and its
phenomenal success_ bus convinced
Mr. Shipman tliut western Canada is
willing and able to support even thc
greatest artists ol the world, and negotiation!) are now in progress wilh
Chevalier which will, in all probability, result In his making a short
tniir of western Canada, visiting
Winnipeg, Vancouver and u limited
number of the larger points between
ihese cities.
The Sun hopes thai the ladies'
hockey teams Ol this eity and Nelson
will be able to arrange for it match
at the local rink during the present
season. It would lie a good drawing card.

CHAPTER II.
The Firat Finger.
' Gurdon waited for his companion
to go on. It wus u boast of Ins that
he had exhuusted most of the sensations of life, and that lie never allowed anything to astonish him. All the
same, he was astonished now, and
surprised beyond words. For the lust
twenty-live years, on and off, he had
known Venner. Indeed, there were
few secrets between them since the
day when they had come down from
Oxford together. From time to time,
during his wanderings, Venner had
written to his old chum u fairly complete account of his adventures. During the last three years the letters
hud been meagre and far between:
and at their meeting a few days ago,
Gurdon had noticed a reticence in
the manner of his old chum that he
had not seen before.
He wa'ted now, naturally enough,
ior the other to give some explanation of his extraordinary statement.
But Venner appeared to have forgotten all about Gurdon. He sat
there, shielding one side of his face,
and heedless of tho attentions of the
waiter, who proffered him food from
t'nie to time.
"Is that ull you are going to tell
me?" Gurdon asked at length.
"Upon my word, I am very sorry,"
Venner said. "But you will excuse
me if I say nothing more on this
head at present. You can imagine
what a shock thin has been to me."
"Of course. I don't wish to be impertinent, old chap, but I presume
that there has been some little misunderstanding "
"Not in the least. There hns been
no misunderstanding whatever. I
honestly believe that the woman ovet
yonder is still ns passionately fond
of me as I am of her. As you know,
Gurdon, 1 never was much of a ladies' man; in fact, you fellows at Ox
ford used to chuff me because I wns
so ill at ease in the society of women. Usually a man like myself
falls in love but once in u lifetime
and then never changes. At any rate,
that was my case. I worship tbe
(•round tliat girl walks upon. I would
have Riven up my life cheerfully for
her; I would do so now if I could
save her a moment's pain. You
think, perhaps, that she saw me when
she came in here to-ni(.ht. That is
where you have (tot the impression
from that there is some misunderstanding between us. You talked just
now of dramatic surprises. I could
show you one even bevond your powers of imagination if I chose. What
would you say if I told you that three
years ago I became the husband of
that heuutifu' girl yonder, and that
from hulf-iin-hour a'ter the ceremony
til the present moment I have never
set eyes on her again'"
"It seems very Incredible," Gurdon
exclaimed.
"Yes, I suppose it does. But it is
absolutely a fact all thrf same. 1
can't ted you here the romance of
my life. I wouldn't do it in surrounding's like these. Wo will fro to
your rooms presently, and then I will
make u cVun breast of the whole
thing. You may he disposed to laugh
nt me for a sentimentalist, but I
should like to stay here a little long-
. er, if it is only now and again to
hear a word or two from her lips.
I* you will push thos" flowers aernss
between me and the liffht I sliall be
quite secure from observation. I
think that will do."
"But you don't mean to tell me."
Gurdon murmered. "that the lady in
question is the daughter of that pie
turesque-iooking old ruffinn, Mark
Fenwick?"
"Of course, slie'isn't," Venner said,
with great contempt. "What the
connection is between them, I cannot
say.   What   Strange   fate   links   them
together is us much a mystery to mo
ns it is tn yuu. I do not like it, hut
I let it puss, feeling so sure of Veru's
innocence and Integrity. Hut the
wuMer will tell us. Here, you fellow,
is the lady dining over there with Mr.
Fenwick his daughter or not?"
"Certainly, sir." the waiter responded.   "That is Miss Fenwick."
Tliere was silence for a moment or
two lii'tween the two friends. Venner nppenred to be deeply immersed
in his owl thoughts, whilst Gordon's
eyes travelled quickly between the
table where the mU'.lonalre sat nnd
the deep armchair, ill which the in-
vnlid lay huddled; and Venner now
saw thnl the cripple on the opposite
side of the room was regarding Fenwick and his companion with a maid*.
ePous intentness.
Dinner hnd come pretty well to an
end at length, nnd now the coffee n
liqueurs were going round. A cup
wns placed before Fenwick. who turned lo one of the wniter with a quick
order which the latter hastened tn
obey. The order was given so clearly
that Gurdon could hear distinctly
what it wes. He bud asked tor n
light wherewith to hum the glnss of
Curnoon which he intended to take
foreign fnshion. in his coffee.
"And don't forget lo bring  mo  a
wooden match," he commanded.
"Household matches. Last night one
of your men brought me a vesta."
The waiter hurried off to execute
his commission, but his intention was
anticipated by another waiter who
had apparently been doing nothing
and hanging about in the background.
The second waiter was a small, lithe
man, with beady, black eyes and curly
hair. For some reason or other Gurdon noticed him particularly; then
he saw a strange thing happen. The
little waiter with the snaky hair
glanced swiftly across the room in the
direction of the cripple huddled up
in the armchair. Just as if he had
been waiting 'or a signal, the invalid
stretched out one of his long arms
and laid his fingers significantly on
the tiny silver box he had deposited
on the tab'.e some little time before
The small waiter went across the
room and deliberately lifted the silver box from the table. Then he
walked briskly across to where the
millionaire was seated, placed the box
close to his elbow, and vanished. He
seemed to fairly race down the room
until he wa*lost in a pi'.e of palms
which masked the doer. Gurdon had
followed all this with the deepest
possible interest. Venner sat there,
apparently lost to all sense of his surroundings. His head was on his
hands, his mind far away. Therefore,
Gurdon wns 'eft entirely to himself,
to study the strunge things that were
going on around him. His who'.e attention was now concentrated upon
Fenwick, who presently tilted hi9
glass of Curaeoa dexterously into his
coffee cup, and then stretched out
his hand 'or the silver match box by
his side. He was still talking with
his companion whilst he fumbled for
a match without looking at the little
case in his hand. Suddenly he ceased to speak, his black eyes rivetted
on the box. Then it fell from his
fingers ns if ft had contained some
poisonous insect, and he rose to his
feet .with a sudden scream that could
be heard all over the room.
There was p. quick hush in the con
versation, and every head wns turned
in the direction of the millionaire's
table. Practically everv di"er there
knew who the man with the yellow
head was, so that the startling interruption was fill the more unexpected.
Once aga!n the frightened cry rang
out, and then Fenwick stood there,
the invalid on this side of the grave.
The sufferer sank at length with a
sigh of re'.ief into a 'arge armchair,
which had been snecially placed for
him. He waved tbe servants aside
as if he had no further use for them,
and commenced to study his menu
as if he had no thought for anything
else. Venner did not 'nil to -note
that the man bed the full use of his
arms; hiB eye dwelt with critical
approval on Ihe strong, muscular
hands and wrists.
"\ow, I wondT who that fellow
is?" he said. "What a magnificent
frame he must have been before hn
got so terriblv broken up."
"He is c'rti'.inl-,* a 'e.sej.nntin'* ner
sonality," G'trlon a''mitt"d. "Somehow, he stri'tes mo on* so much as
the victim of an accident os an unfortunate being who is suffering 'rom
the result of some terrible form of
vengeance. What a character na
would make for a story! I am ready
to bet anything reason that if we
could get to the bottom of his history
it wouM be it most dramatic one. It
regularly appeals to the imagination.
I can quite believe our friend yonder
has dragged himself out of bed by
sheer force of will to keep some appointment, wherehv he can WTeak his
long nursed revenge."
"Not in a place like this," Venner
smiled.
"Why not? In the old days these
things used to be played out to the
accompaniment of thunder and lightning on a blasted heath. Now we
are much more quiet and gentle in
methods. It Is quite ev'dent that our
handsom" friend is expecting someone
to dine with him. He gives a most
excel'ent dinner to his enemy, points
out to him his faults in the most
gentlemanly fashion, and then proceeds to poison him with a specially
prepared cigar. I enn see the whole
thing in the form o' a short story.
Venner smiled at the conceit of his
companion. He wns more than half
Inclined tn take sentimental vie,v
o' the thing himsel'. He turned to
(he wa'ter to give some order, and ns
he did so. his eyes encountered two
more people who nt that moment,
entered the dining-room. They were
i mnn nnd n woman. The man was
somewhat past middle ag". with n
large bald head, covered with a shining dome of yellow skin, an 1 a yellow
face lighted bv a pair of dcop-sunk.
dark eyes. The whole wns set of
and rendered sinister by n small hook
nose nnd little bliirk moustache. For
the r"st, the man W"s short nrd inclined to he stout He walked with t,
wonderfully 'ighl and agile st"p for a
mnn nf his weight; he seemed to
reach bis sent much na a cut might
hnve done. Indeed despite his bulk,
there was something strangely feline
ahout the stranger.
Venner tave a peculiar gnsn nnd
gurg'e. His eyes started. All the
blood receded from b's brown face,
'.ee.viti" bim ghastly white under his
tan. It was no nspect of fear—rather
one of surprise, oi strong and unconquerable emotion. At the same moment Venner's hand snapped the stem
of bis win" glass, n"d the chnmpngne
frothed unon the tab'".
"Who bUthftt men?" Venn"r nsked
of th" wniter. Fi« tone was so strained nnd harsh that he hardly recognised his own voice "Who is the
man, I snv? Vt. .no: T <'on't tneo"
him. I mean that ston* man, with
the lady in white  ov"r there."
The waiter sterol! at Ih" snenW Ir
astonishment. He s""n,ed to wonder
where he had heen all these yenrs.
"That, sir, is Mr. Mark Fenwick
the great American millionaire."
Venner waved the speaker aside.
He was recovering from his emotion
now; the blood had returned once
more to his cheeks. He became conscious of the fact that Gurdon was
regarding him with a polite, yet none
the less critical, wonder.
"What is the matter?" the latter
I asked. "Ilaily, the air seems full
o." mystery™iio you know that for the
last two minutes you have been regarding that obese capitalist witl) a
look that wos absolutely murderous?
Do you mean, to tell me that you have
ever seen him be'ore?"
"Indeed, 1 have," Venner replied.
"But on the last occasion of our meeting, he did not call himself Mark
Fenwick, or by any other name so
distinctly British. Look at hiin now.
look at his yellow sk:n with the deep
patches of purple at the roots of the
little hair he has. Mark the shape of
his face and the peculiar oblique slit
of his eyelids. Would you take that
for an Englishman?"
"No, I shouldn't,'1' Gurdon said
frankly. "If I had to hazard a guess,
I should say lie is ether Portuguese
nr perhaps something of the Mexican half caste."
"You wouid not be far wrong,"
Venner said quietly. "I suppose you
thought that the appearance of that
man here to-night wns something of
shock to me. You can little guess
what sort of a shock it has been. I
promised to tell you my story presently so it will have to keep. In the
meantime, it is my mood to sit here
and watch that man."
"Personally, I am much more interested in his companion," Gurdon
iaughed. "A daughter of the gods,
if ever there was one. What a face,
and what a figure! Do you mean to
say that you didn't notice her ns she
came in?"
"Positi"ely, I didn't." Venner confessed. "My whole attention was rivetted on the man. I toll you I can
see absolutely nothing hut his grent,
yellow, wicked face, with the background of the romantic spot where
we last met."

LEGAL PHRASEOLOGY.
What Some of the Terms Common to
Court Practice Meant.
To most persons the phrase "This
indenture witnesseth" is as mucii
Greek os the other common phrase
"Witness my hand and seal.' Yet
both are relics of a time when these
legal forms carried with them a sig
nificance not obtaining at present.
Legal documents were once engrossed upon parchment because paper cost
so much more than dressed skin. The
parchment was seldom trimmed exactly and the top was Bcalloped with
the kniie; hence the term "This indenture." Even where the lawyers
have departed from the custom of using parchment for their legal forms
the phrase has been retained.
In the same way the signature of
"nand and seol" is a re_ic of those
olden times when only clerks and the
clergy could wield the pen. It was
the custom for the contracting parties
to lay their hands upon the document
in token of good iaith, and there remained a smudge. As these original
thumb marks were not easily identified, the gentry added their senls for
the purpose of further establishing
the validity of the document. It may
not be generally known thut a seal is
still required in law, though the need
for it passed with the spread of education, and the bit of red paper affixed by the lawyer is as necessary as
the signature lo certain documents.
A court of law is a reminiscence
oi the time when justice Hit in the
open courtyard, and the "dock" is
from a German word meaning a receptacle, while the "bar" is a Welsh
word meaning a branch of a tree used

The entire phraseology of the

dnys, but. hnving been proved proper,  has  been  retained.
Blacks Gaining Ground.
South Africans are worrying over the
views recently propounded by Prof.
Brown of Cn^e Town, who foresees
thnt before the end of the century the ]
Kaffirs will be the dominant race in
thc sub-continent. '
One of the principal factor that is
welding tlie natives together is religion, which is being disseminated by
missionaries. The natives are increasing at an enormous rate, and in Cap<
Colony they are being edueatid to a
great extent. Nearly every native boy
and girl is taught to read and write.
More ond more black labor is being
employed in the colony, ln a very
short time the native will have a large
number of trades in his own hands.
In skilled labor he is steadily displacing white labor. Utimately he will
displace the former as well.
In Cane Town one can see native!,
having their boots blacked by white
men. Intermarriage between natives
and whites is taking place, and eventually the race will become a mixture.
Segregation in Prof. Black's opinion is
thc only thing that will save white
South Africa.

Mmf Scalp
MinfcHair
To prevent dry, > thin and falling
hair, remove dandruff, allay Itching
and ' rotation of the scalp, and promo.,- .he growth and beauty of the
hair, frequent shampoos with Cuticura Soap, assisted by occasional
dressings with Cutloura Ointment,
succeed when other methods fail.
Cutloura Soap and Ointment have
b-on equally effective in the treatment ot torturing, disfiguring scalp
lvmor: and the alarming loss of hair
■whi-h so of'en results. For examp.e,
read h~w Oeorge E. Jefferson, 1518
Mewl at., Philadelphia, tells of hia
romarkr.ble oase:
"My dlsesn started with a little pimple
on my head. Then It began to Itch. The
mora I would scratch, tne worse it grew
until It thread &ll over my head. 80 1
■went to th» doctor. But my htmil grew
as raw aa a piece of beef and my luilr commenced to fall out 111 bunches. 80 I
changed doctors. My head at this time
was no sore I could not touch lt. Then I
decided to so to the hospital. They began
to treat tt but it Improved very slowly.
For over three yeara I wu a suflerer from
thL. disease. I thought all hopes ot a permanent cure were impossible. A friend,
upon seeing the condition of my head —
-which waa a maas ot running corruption
— asked me If I had tried the Cuticura
Remedies. I told him nothing would do
me any good: but being very anxious to
be cured, I decided to try them. The Snt
treatment brought Immediate relief. My
hair became alive and stopped falling out,
all the scale left and now I am perfectly
well and have a full head of hair. 1 can
truthfully aay that tt was entirely due to
the use of the Cuticura Remedies/'

Marketing Eel Grass.
During the last three or lour months
several hundred tons of eel grass
have been exported irom Yarmouth,
Nova Scotia, to the United States,
where is sells ut $10 to $12 per ton,
while freight from Yarmouth to Boston is ubout $1 per ton.
Last year's crop is now ubout clean
ed up, but those engaged in gathering
and curing in this district have been
quite busy. The supply on hand is
greatly larser thnn at the same time
tor a like date for any previous year.
Two or three cutherers of this grass,
who appear to monopolise the export
trade, buying up irom the smaller
gatherers what they cure, have erected mammoth sheds and are busy storing it away. They report that the
market in tho United States is well
supplied at this time, and that, with
the exception of a few small lots,
there will be very little exported during the coming year, and not a great
deal until 1912.
Boston is u very large buyer for this
grass, where it is used in building,
packing, cheap muttresses and mixllitj
with other fibres. Eflorts bave been
made, and are still being made, to
utilise tbe grass for rope, twine, rug.
und other materials lor which sisal
and other grasses are used, lt is
stout, long, und of fine fibre, and it is
suggested tbut it might be used to
advantage iu pnper-making. Hundreds ami thousands oi tons of it could
be secured near Yarmouth every year,

Age is no barrier to the wonderful,

PILLS, the great Canadian Kidney
Cure. We have on record many letters irom men and women of 60, 65,
70, 75, 80 and over, testifying to the
great relief they received from taking
UIN PILLS.
Mr. Samuel Martin, oi Strathroy,
Ont., suffered for twenty years with
misery in his back. Some months
ago, he tried GIN PILLS and after
taking only three boxes, was entirely
cured. Mr. Martin is now 85 years
of age and enjoys the robust health
oi a vigorous man of sixty, thanks
to GIN PILLS.
All elderly people are troubled,
more or less, with Kidney and Bladder trouble, and pain and weakness
in the back. GIN PILLS are a guaranteed cure for all these misfortunes.

He looked hard at me and inquired:
" 'Do you know Daniel WiUoui"
" 'I do.'
" 'Intimately?' v
" 'Yes, intimately."
" 'Then follow this road till you see
a house that looks as 11 it belongs to

Eczema is
Not Fatal
But its torture increases as It spreads
over the body until it makes life
a burden.   It is cured by
DR. CHASE'S OINTMENT
So many hove ecjemn of one form
or another ond do not know it. Tlie
constant itching annoys them, but
they senrely realize how the disease
is gradually spreading and becoming
more aggravated.
Particularly during cold weather,
when exposed to sudden changes ami
dampness, this ailment becomes more
severe, and during the night, when
the body is wnrm, suffering is intense ond sleep almost impossible.
Tliere is cure in the use of Dr.
Chase's Ointment. This healing,
soothing preparation brings almost
instunt relief from tlie distressing
itching.
In the course of a few days the
healing process sets in und it is only
a question of time nnd persistent application of the ointment until cure
is effected.
Mr. Fred. W. Clork Petworth, Ad-
dington county, Ont., writes:—"My
mother hod eczema in both legs for
about twenty years. She doctored for
a long time and tried everything for
it, but got no relief until a friend
advised her to use Dr. Chase's Ointment, which she got.
"She found tlmt Dr. Chase's Ointment gave her great relief, so she got
some more and continued this treatment faithfully, until now she is entirely cured of eczemn. I don't think
i anyone could have this disease worse
than sbe did."

THE AVERAGE WOMAN
NEEDS MORE BLOOD
Nerves Easily Irritated, She
Worries Over Little
Things
To the womon in the home—the
woman closely confined to the house
either through household duties or
the care of children, or both — Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills are a positive
blessing. The average woman has
too little blood. Her nerves are
easily irritated, she worries over little tilings; bus severe headaches and
backaches ond is sick most of tlie
time. With the woman who uses Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills the condition is
different. She is always well and
the care of her children, or her
household duties, is a real pleasure.
This is because Dr. Williams' Pink-
Pills enrich the blood supply nnd
bring bounteous health nnd strength.
Here is proof. Mrs. Fanny Shepherd, Girvin, Snsk, says: "I am
the mother of a large family and
wos worn out, weak und irritable. I
kept going to my doctor about
every six weeks, and he would give
me something "to keep me going n
little longlir." But it was like
winding up a clock, I soon got run
down again, ond although life seemed hnrdly worth living, I did not
wish to die because of leaving my
little children. I continued like this
fur some years, hut at last summoned up i'ii nigh energy to strike out 11
new departure nnd got a supply of
Dr. Williams' Pink I'ills. I barely
hoped they would help me, but to my
surprise, before I bad been taking
them long I began to feel like a dif-
terent woman. I still continued taking thi' Pills fir siime time, and they
made me us well mid strong »s any
woinun need wish to be.   Once mure I
would enjoy life thoroughly, and have
dune so ever sinci*. I never need a
doctor, now, anil everything seems
bright end ohoertul, I shnll always
recommend  Dr. Williams'  I'ink  I'ills
to anyone who In my opinion needs a
tunic uf any kind."

not affected our job printing

schools at Yakima valley and in the
Okanagan. To any imp taking up
the remunerative work of fruit pack
ing no better opportunity to become
acquainted with the art can be had.
Those desiring to join should present their names to James Rooke as

The scnool will probably be held
in Mr. Morrison'n building, in thc

SHE CURED HER
HEART DISEASE
WHEN   SHE   CURED   HER   KIDNEYS     WITH     DODD'S
KIDNEY PILLS
Mrs. Henry J. Jacques Found a
speedy relief for all her troubles,
and now enjoys the best of health.
St. Rose du I.ne, Man. (Special).—
Thnt Heart Disease is one of the results of disordered Kidneys, and is
consequently easily cured by Dodd's
Kidney Pills, is the experience of
Mrs. Henry .1. Jacques, of this place.
"My heart troubled ine all tbe
time," snid Mrs. Jacques in an interview, "and I knew whnt terrible
results might follow. The fact tbat
my limbs would swell and my buck
ache led me to believe tbat I nlso
suffered from Kidney Disease, so I
determined to try Dodd's Kidney
Pills. 1 bought four boxes, nnd before 1 had finished lbe third box the
swelling wns gone, my back wus well
nnd my heart no longer troubled me.
1 am now in the best of health, and
I owe it all to Dodd's Kidney Pills."
Heart Disease is one of the troubles
thnt come from unhealthy Kidneys.
They faii to strain the impurities out
of the blood, and those impurities are
bound to nffect the heart, which is
the engine that propels the blood
through the body. To cure Heart
Disease cure tbe Kidneys with Dodd's
Kidney Pills; to prevent Heart Disease keep the Kidneys toned up nnd
healthy by using Dodd's Kidney Pills.

A Bible Name
The late Bishop Gallier was once
asked to baptize a negro baby boy.
"Name the child," he said, address-,
ing Mrs. Jaskson, thc mother of the
black mite.
"Hallud."
"That's a strange name, Mrs. Jackson," remarked the bishop hesitatingly.
"Seripter name," rejoined the
huppy mother with a confident grin.
"I never saw it in the Bible."
"Why, Bishop, how kin yuh stan'
up dar kiddin' a ole ignorant niggah
lak I is? Yuh says dat name when
yob says de Lord's prayer—'Hallud
be Thy name!' "

A Mild Pill for Delicate Women.--The

without fear of unpleasant consequences.
Their action, while wholly effective, is
mild and agreeable. No violent pains or

women who have used them can testify.
They are therefore, strongly recommended
to women, who are more prone to disorders of the digestive organs than men.
A small boy living with his aunt
and grandma, noticed on one occasion
thut the regular black pepper shaker
was partly filled with red pepper.
This aroused no little concern on the
part of the lad and turning to his
aunt, who sat next to him at the
table, he said; "You'd better not eat
any of that red pepper, Aunt Harriet;
grandma says that red pepper kills
ants."

maid "Has anybody been here this
afternoon, Jane?"
"No, ma'am," snid Jane. "But
here are the Tompkinses' cards.
Have they called?" Yes, ma'am,"
said Jane, with a superior air, "but

Because they are the only medicine

his teeth are troubling him, Baby's

Tbe characters became almost as real

this perfect sympathy and companionship with a mnn whom she had not
seen until a few hours before. Two
little clouds occasionally darkened
Cartrlgbt's sunshine. He was plighted
tn another, nnd nn Miss Broadhurst's
slender, pink tipped third linger a
splendid diamond flashed. He banished these thoughts whenever they came.
"This one afternoon snail be ours," be

Quite naturally he fell to talking ot
his story and tbe plot tbat would not
come. "Tbe man Is au athlete, a splendid fellow in every way.   Him I bave

"And sbe, Mlsa Broadhurst If I can

me famous. I thought one so sweet
and charming could not exist until X

It was uo idle compliment no silly
attempt at flirtation. Swiftly tbe girl
searched Cartrlgbt's mind and found
him sincere. "Thank you, Mr. Cart-
right" she said simply, yet sbe colored witb pleasure.
"lt may seem queer," be continued,
"but tbere Is a feellug. too stroug to

His companion nodded. 'I know the

CLERKS TAUGHT HERE.
Unselfish Development at Selfridge'i
Big Store I n London.
The art of serving in a shop — of
making customers buy what you wish
to tell them—is by no means an easy
one to learn. This applies particularly
to the present season, when the constant flow of customers last veritably
"from morn till afternoon, and afternoon till night." let, curiously enough, the teaching of this art has
beeu almost entirely neglected. It
was not until Mr. Percy A. Best, staff
manager at Selfridge'i., recently opened his school in Oxford street, that
the prospective shop assistant was afforded tne opportunity for thoroughly
learning the ins and outs of his business.
"It was the remembrance of my own
experience as a lad," said Mr. Best
to the Answers man, "that caused
us to start our school. My father apprenticed me to a firm for three years,
during which time I was bound hand
and foot, and had to do the particular
work that was set before me, whether
I happened to be fitted for it or not.
"The first year I was put into the
'cash desk,' at a salary of one shilling
a week. This princely wage ,was raised to two shillings during my second
year, and daring my third I received
a further rise to three shillings, or
£7 16s. per annum. I was not bothered with income-tax papers, as you
can imagine! But this consideration
was as small as my earnings themselves by the side of the appalling
fact that, during the whole of tnis period, I was having absolutely no instruction whatever.
"When one considers the many tripping-stones of shop life, how can one
expect a nervous beginner-to make
rapid or satisfactory progress, unless
he is properly taught his business?
He, or she, is obsessed from the very
outset by that one overwhelming fear
—dismissal. He must 'rub along'
somehow, and pretend to know the di.-
ierence between silk and satin and
cotton and linen, and the value of
.■very article in every drawer or shell
in tne shop, even if he does not.
"Customers, too, frequently need the
most tactful handling. Their characteristics are many and varied. The
intelligent and exacting lady who
knows just what she wants, and will
have it; the good-natured country
mouse, who doesn't know what she
wants, but wants it all the same; the
bewildered paterfamilias, who must
be treated very gently, because even if
he does seem lost at my lady's counter, he is only endeavoring to give
her aome little Christmas surprise;
these, and all the other familiar types
of shoppers, must be handled according to their different individualities,
and the well-equipped assistant must
learn to respect and bear with every
one.
"When I joined Selfridge's, therefore, I determined to try and Hud
some better means of educating shop-
assistants in the way they should go,
and in our school, I think, we may
claim to be doing so. At present we
have 120 pupils. There are no fees.
After the first month, which we regard
merely as a test, our pupils receive a
few shillings a week—in addition to
their dinners and teas—and these allowances are increased in proportiun
to their progress. Their studies consist of attending magic-lantern lectures, practical work und observation
u tlie various departments U •.<!! bu»i-
uess, a.ul easuy-v.riling."
Pigtails In British Army.
Pigtails survived in our army until
well into the nineteenth century, the
Welsh fusiliers being the last to abandon them. Sir Algernon West relates
how he heard an argument once as to
whether the blues did or did not wear
pigtails at Waterloo. One of the disputants, who had seen them on their
way to Dover, was convinced that they
did. The other, who had been a midshipman on the transport which conveyed them to Ostend, was equally
:*rtain that their hair was short. The
?i ver of the dinner at which the dispute arose referred the matter ou the
following day to a friend who ha.l
served in the blues at Waterloo.
"Both your friends were right," he
^aid. "Wc were reviewed at Windsor
by the King on our departure with
our pigtails on, and at Dover we had
them cut off before our embarkation.'

Why He Applauded.
A characteristic anecdote ia told of
Cherubiui, the most jealous of the irritable genus ol composers. He had
been prevailed upon to be present al
the first representation of the work of
a confrere, and during the first acts,
which were much applauded by the
public, he had kept a gloomy silence.
The third act was less favorably received, and a certain passage especially seemed to cast s cold blanket over
the spectators, when the old maestro,
to the astonishment of his friends, wu
seen to applaud heartily.
"Do you really like that duo?" asked
•me of them. "I should have thought
it was one of the poorest and coldest
in the whole opera.
"Vou idiot," answered the maestro,
with genuine naivete, "don't you see
that il I did not applaud it he might
possibly cut it out?"
PRtfUlHENT DIANAS.
Duchess of Connaught Has a Rhinoceros to Her Credit.
The Duchess of Aosta's expedition
to Central Africa is not her first experience of big game shooting. She
was in Africa two years ago on the
same quest, and there is a picture in
existence representing her standing
beside a large dead zebra, a trophy of
her gun, says The London Times. It
is i it surprising when one .onsiders
the real dangers and hardships of this
form of sport that the number of women who have taken it up seriously
should be few.
The Duchess of Aosta, however, has
trained herself from childhood in all
kinds of open air sport. When her
parents the Comte and Countesse de
Paris, lived at Stowe she hunted with
enthusiasm, but, unlike her mother,
she did ..not care much for covert
shooting. She shares to the full her
husband's knowledge and love of
horses and she was one of the first
ladies of rank to take up aeronautic".
The Duchess of Connaught bugged
a large rhinoceros this summer during the duke's sporting expedition to
East Africa, but the Duchess of Aosta
is the only princess who has had much
experience of big game shooting.
Lady Delamere, who is on her way
to England on a visit to her parents.
Lord and Lady Enniskillen, has become under her husband's tuitiort a
notable big game shot. She spent
her honeymoon in East Africa, where
Lord Delamere has practically made
his home near Nairobi, cultivating sugar and cotton on a large scale. Although the equator rups through his
estate, yet as it lies some 7,000 feet
above the sea the climate is delightful, as Mr. Churchill, who has stayed
there, can testify.
Lady Minto is, however, probably
the most distinguished big game shot
among English sportswomen. In the
first year of her husband's viceroyalty
Lady Minto and her daughter. Lady
Eileen Elliot, each got a black buck
while on a visit to the Maharajah
of Bikanir. A year later Her Excellency took her share of the shooting
during the viceregal visit to Kashmir
killing seven out of the thirty-six
black bears secured by the party. 0..
a subsequent visit to Bikanir Lady
Eileen Elliot got her first tiger.
A Byron Pose.
Lady Dorothy Nevill, who recently
published a new book of reminiscences, tells the following story ol
Lord Byron:—
"Lord Byron, when he first dined
with Mr. Rogers, the banker poet, to
whose breakfasts I have been when a
girl," says Lady Dorothy, "was ask
ed if he would take soup. 'No; 1
never take soup.'
"Would he take some fish? 'No; I
never take fish.'
"Presently he Was aaked if he
would eat some mutton. 'No; I never
eat mutton.'
"Mr. Kogers then asked him if he
would take a glass of wine. 'No; I've
never tasted wine.'
"It was then necessary to inquire
what he did eat and drink; and the
answer was: 'Nothing but hard biscuits and soda-water.'
"Unfortunately neither hard biscuits nor soda-water were at hand;
and he dined upon potatoes, bruised
down on his plate, and drenched with
vinegar!
"Some days after, meeting Hob-
house, Rogers said to him, 'How long
will Lord Byron persevere in his present diet?'
"He replied, 'Just so long as you
continue to notice it.'
"Rogers subsequently ascertained
that Byron, after leaving his house,
had gone to a club in St. James'
street aud eaten a hearty supper."

An   Irish  Feud.
Ancient land feuds and family quarrels die hard in Ireland. At Cork
the other week, Joseph Bradfield.
farmer, Kinsule, was awarded compensation for malicious injury to :.
number of sheep and lambs. It was
stated that the mother of the applicant was in possession of the farm for
a period of twenty years. Before she
took the farm a person was evicted
from it. A couple of years ago s representative of the evicted tenant, who
had established himself in a good
place in New York, came back to
Knisale and demanded the farm from
Mrs. Bradfield. Since then they had
been annoyed, everyone with whom
they dealt in the town of Kinsale hud
received threatening letters, and the
police had to guard the farm by day
and night. The magistrate said this
was not alone a malicious act, but a
very disgraceful and scandalous one,
and sucn things were the curse ol Ire

Former Leader of the Irish Nationalists Gets Congratulations From All
Over the World on the Attainment
of His Eightieth Birthday—Wrote
the History of Our Own Times,
Which Has Become a Classic.
One of Great Britain's grand old
men, Justin McCarthy, recently celebrated iu Loudon his eightieth birthday anniversary and »as the recipient uf congratulations from every
part of the English-speaking world.
His career has been au active and a
useful one, part of it passed in the
turmoil of political stri.e and part of
it in the quietness oi ids library,
from which have issued many works
uf exceptional   merit.
Mr. McCarthy, (inner leader of the
Irish Nationalists, comes uf a family
devoted for many generations tu the
cause of Ireland. He was born in
"rebel" Cork November 22, 1630. He
had literary tastes as a youth, but
his chief desire was to be a barrister.
Academic degrees wire then denied to
Roman Catholics und to Protestant
Dissenters. Thus debarred from entering the legal profession through the
university, and unilble to afford the
costly training outside the university,
young McCarthy turned his attention
to journalism, and became a reporter
on The Cork Examiner. He was a
youthful sympathizer with the Nationalist movement, und was deeply impressed by the trial of Smith O'Brien
and  the elder   Dillon   and   Thomas
News.

A New Business Story.
A good story is told at the expense
of a business firm in the city of Toronto. This firm were in the habit of
taking the building records from the
various papers and sending a circular
tetter to each builder with regard lo
insurance on his structure. These
printed records were handed over to a
stenographer, who was supposed lo
write an individual letter to each. The
letters were signed in a pcrlunctory
way by one of the members of the
firm. As a result one ol these letters,
telling all about the firm's ability to
handle fire insurance, was sent to the
City Clerk of London, Ont., which
:orporMion was building a solid cement bridge over the River Thames.
Thc information as to tbe amount ol
fire insurance which the city of London is likely to carry on this structure has not yet reached the office of
these clever Toronto insurance men.
JUSTIN m'cahtby.
Francis Meagher, who were sentencsd
to death, but reprieved by Queen
Victoria and transported to Van Die-
men's Land. Young McCarthy was
sent to report the trial. He was a
putriotic youth of 19 and received his
baptism of lire as he filled his notebook in the Court House at Ballin-
garry.
During tbe succeeding years Mr.
McCarthy followed journalism in Liverpool and in London, and published
several novels,'including My Enemy's
Daughter and watcrdule Neighbors.
He was a reporter in tlie House of
Commons and subsequently became
editor of The Morning Stor. When
John Bright gave up hfs connection
with that paper Mr. McCarthy resigned the editorship and with his wif.t
and family took a prolonged tour
through the United States. The experiences of this period colored his
succeeding novels. Lady Judith and
Dear Lady Disdain. When he relurned to London in 1872 Mr. McCarthy
thought of writing a history of tha
Radical purty and the idea expanded
into Thc History of Our Own Times.
Mr. McCarthy's Parliamentary career extended over 17 years and he
was chairman of tlie Irish Parliamentary party from 1890 tu 1896. His
speeches in Parliament were in fine
literary form, and were full ol historical allusions and poetical quotations.
They were delivered in a quiet, unemotional manner. They wero far,
however, Irom ineffective. Mr. McCarthy hail the ear of the House,
and in his gentle way uttered many
a caustic remark. His knowledge of
"our own times" and nl men who
had played u leading part in affairs
gave his speeches a special value and
interest. Through them all hr'iithed
an ardent love of his own couutry.
