-r.l "... .■•■■.   | formation in  regard  to  lhe  system
cost; which would make that system out of the question; as it
would be too heaqy a tax on the land at presents He was of
the opinion that the most economical, as well as the best,
system that could be adopted would be for the ranchers to
build wooden Humes and install Individual pumping plants.
The ilumes could be constructed very cheaply, and his company would sell electric power for pumping purposes at a rate
of 3 cents per k.w. hour. This would bring the cost to $5 an
acre per annum for 24 acre inches of water, based on a lift of
50 feet. If the lift was lower or higher, the cost would be
lowered or raised proportionately. In/otae instances two or
three small ranchers could combine and install a joint plant.
For lighting purposes he would sell power at the same rate
as he charged the city. The company woidd deliver the
power at each pumping plant. At many places, in order to
avoid carrying the Water great distanoes, it would be advisable to sink wells. His company controlled all the water in
the river, and they intended to hold on. to it; but they would
sell power to the tanchers and allow them to pump from the
river. Water could be lifted to a height of 150 feet and be
made to pay commercially. Mr. Powell, an irrigation expert
from Wenatehee, had informed him that the land in this valley required "24 acre inches per mumm. By adopting the in-
vidual punipiug system, he said, the farmer only paid for the
power he used. Some land did not require as much water as
other; a bearing orchard needed more water than a young
orchard, .and some seasons the rainfall was nearly sufficient
to raise crops without irrigation. •
J, L. Manly then explained his gravity irrigation project,
the details which were published in The Scn a few weeks
ago. He would dam the Kettle river at Curlew or Midway,
and bring the water across the international boundary line
in woo ien pipes to each ranch in the valley. If he had no
right to bring the water from the American side, it would
eost the ranchers nothing, as his company would stand the
cost of all litigation. The.time, for irrigation had come, and
tlie water would come. Work on his system would begin
on the first on March. He maintained that a gravity system
was superior to any Other, The cost would lie $50' per acre,
payable in ten yearly installments. At the end of ten years
the ranchers would own the sytem. The ranchers would
have to pay for the maintenance of tlie plant. He was making his contracts for 12 acre inches of water per annum. He
had made the assertion last spring that he would put in water,
and he would stand by it. There would be no danger of the
water freezing in the. pipes 'during the winter months, as it
would always be in motion. He wanted 4000 (teres to irrigate, but would install] bis plant if he only got one-half of
that acreage. The money for the installation of the system
would diaw II per cent interest, lie had not yet decided
whether he would put the intake atGurlew or Midway. If at
t ie latter place, the water at this end could be raised 180
feet He was of the opinion, however, that tlie intake would
be just this side of Curlew. If at any time the company should
fail ti) deliver the water through litigation, the contracts
would be null and void, and payments would stop. He expressed the opinion that a big irrigation plant would add a
million dollars to the value of the land in the valley.
At the conclusion of Mr. Manly's remarks, a hearty vote!
of thanks was tendered him and Mr. Campbell for trouble in
cbmniliiig irrigation statistics. N
than had lieen given out during the
evening, it , would be cheerfully
furnished either hy himself or Mr.
Gibson. The power, he saitl, would
be ready to hook unto the pumps by
the first oi April.

In the marriage of Miss Paulitu
Chase to Claude Grahnme-White,
which event, it has been announced,
will take place I tfore the elapse ol
many montlis, a beautiful and popular
actress will becom.: the brid» of a famous aviator—an Englishman whoaa
marvelous work is known to Canadians as well as to his admirers
abroad.
The aviator's bride is equally famed
in her particular liue oi work. She
obtained her first stage success as a

member of the Edna May Company in
London. She is particularly admired
in England and on the continent. Perhaps ner fame lies chiefly in her
unarming interpretation of thc Pink
Pajama Girl, though in J. M. Barrie'n
Peter Pan, in which she appeared in
London and Paris, she was ideal in t'le
part of the fariy boy, who never grew
up. Miss Chase, by the way, is tbo
adopted daughter of Mr. Barrie. She
and her fiance have been acquainted
ior seven years and it has long been
known that the aviator deeply admired the clever little stage iavorite.
It will be remembered that at the
time oi Mr. Barrie's divorce irom his
wife there was a story circulated that
he was to marry Miss Chase, but the
announcement oi the coming marriage
fives the quietus to any such rumor.

Lord Haliiax, who at. the Church
Congress spoke so strongly about
our divorce laws, has been president
oi the English Church Union ior
over forty years. A realous church
worker, Viscount Halifax was also
an intimate friend of the late King
Edward, with whom he used to play
cricket at Windsor fifty years ago.
Lord Halifax has many interesting
recollections of his boyhood. His
Yorkshire parish was at one time

Concerning the time when he wes

the well-known singer, who is appearing at Covent Garden during the
opera season, tells an amusing story.
Two young folks, apparently lovers,
were heard to speak in high terms
oi the performance oi Mr. O'Mara on
his dummy harp with the five strings.
Neither had the least notion that the
music came irom the prosaic person
"in another place," and so the words
ran irom the lips oi the girl: "My,
'ow beautiful he played that 'arp!"
To which the young man, who had
to maintain his position as a superior person oi information, replied:
"Yes; 'e is' reckoned one oi the best

The report oi the Manitoba Department oi Agriculture contains some
pertinent figures on the cattle industry. Last year there were 372,520 cattle in thc province; in 1908 there were
41S.483 cattle, and in 1907 there were
463,862. Thc decline oi nearly one hundred thousand head in two years in
the lace oi a rapidly increasing population is a serious matter. There ia
an even more marked decline in the
sheep industry. As long ago as 1893
there were 35,400 sheep in Manitoba.
The numbers have steadily decreased,
until in 1909 there were but 17.922.
The hog industry alone seems to be
thriving: the numbers have been
gradually increasing, jumping irom
104,113 in 1905 to 135,541 last year."

BACKWOODS' PHILOSOPHY.
Being Soma Extract From Old Abt
Ward's  Diary.
Abe Ward lived many years ago in
the backwoods ot  Northern Ontario,
when those parts were only just be-
coming known to the outside world.
i He was a good bushnian, with a kind
| heart and a wise old head.   In iact,
I his memory is kept green by the pres-
1 ent generation around  Simon Creek
by numerous tales ol the "sage ot the
] bush."
I Far away irom the influence ol pro-
I gressivo civilization, Abe thought and
worked and lived by rules oi his own,
and even set wise precepts tor his
neighbors. Nobody could tell anything
about Abe. His past life was a closed
liook. Where he came Irom and what
he had been was never known. Abe
rarely talked, and when he did he
would not be drawn into a conversation about himself. He was a great
1 favorite, however, with the whole
countryside. Even Jim Faber and
Peter Staker, who wero the most dissolute fellows for miles, would speak
in high terms of Abe, and when one
cold December morning he was found
dead in his lonely shack, it was a
mournful procession that laid his body
reverently to rest a few hours later.
Travelers to those parts to-day linger
long over the stone erected by' the
boys, bearing the strange epitaph, "A
dead man must be more uselul than
either."
When Abe died, among his earthly
treasures were a bundle of pieces of
bark on which weie scratched numerous notes. These have been preserved and are ktiowD around Simon
Creek as "Abe's Diary." Everybody
lor miles around has read the diary,
but until now none oi it has ever
been published.
Here are some extracts Irom Abe's
Diary. This part is known in Simoa
Creek as "The Bushman's Creed."
"I believe there is a source to every
rreek, a root to every tree, and a God
tt the beginning ol both.
"I believe in a strong arm, a cool
head, and a sharp axe with a stout
shaft.
"I believe the best way to split a
tough proposition i3 to use a good set
ti wedges, and swing a beadle.
"1 believe in a future existence. Ii
dead trees make good timber, anl
dead leaves enrich the ground, a dcaJ
man must be more useiul than either.
" Ibelieve tha strongest part ol a
pine is the smell; the surest thing
about the hemlock, its color, and the
noblest thing about a man, his char-
icter. The pine-smell can travel a
mile. The hemlock-blood dye a hide
but the influence oi a good character
is unbounded.
"I believe there is only one way
possible ior a tree to tall, and that is
the way it Jeans living. So with a
man.
"I believe in gathering up the brush
as 1 go along, lt keeps, the path clear
lor others."
But for the almost religious cart
iaken of Abe's diary by doting Iriends.
It would 'ere now have followed the
late oi all other pieces ol bark. It is
a source ol lasting credit to the inhabitants ol Simon Creek that they
had the wisdom and foresight to keep
the unioue diary intact. Abe touched
on many subjects of human interest,
end because be expressed himself in
an original wuy, heedless ol the dictates ot orthodoxy, casting aside the
•igid claims oi a narrow, nttj-mind-
*i generation, his words immediately
look new life and presented truths
in simple language.
Here are two others ot his short
philosophical sayings, referring to hu
man life in general:
"The highest form of life in this
world is human, and as the acorn is to
the oak, so human lite contains the
seed nl something greater.
"A tree that bears branches on on*
tide only cannot grow stately."
A Qlova Cleaning Hint.
In washing chamola gloves do not
wring them or even squeeze very dry,
•» with ordinary glove cleaning. The
skins pull easily, and wringing breaks
the tender fabric.
Put the rinsed gloves Into a thick
Turkish towel and press out most of
the moisture, then hang them In a
strong current of air to dry. Fasten
the pair together by buttons and hang
with lingers down.
The ahrlnkinx. of which many women complain In chamois glove washing, con be overcome by drying the
gloves on (he bund after they come
Irom the Turkish towel and a few
minutes' airing
Rub gently until dry. Tbe beat of
the band makes this drying a quicker
process than most women Imagine, and
tbere la little dnnger of taking cold.
Do not neglect rinsing us well as
washing In soapy water If you do not
wish your gloves to stiffen.

Tha Qreat Condt.
The great military genius Conde wat
a precocious boy. At eight he understood Latin, and at eleven he gave out
a treatise on rhetoric. When fourteen
he had become thoroughy conversant
with the principles of warfare and of
all military tactics.
ON THE ROCKS.
K Mlttakt  It a Strlout Matter to a
Lake Captain.
Captains on the big passenger boats
ire expected to "know navigation,"
but a sea captain depending on navi-
i gation alone would make a sorry flat
of it on the Lakes. "Navigation" is
no good in a snowstorm. In fact, in
that contingency, most lake captains
prefer to tie up, or, if caught in mid-
lake, to proceed with extreme caution, laying to, if at all practicable,
under ttie ee oi Whiteiisli Point, an
island, or some such shelter.
In a snow-storm every landmark or
light on shore is shut oi as by a wall,
'ine stars are naught, 'i'he sun is
blotted out irom tne sky. There is
no sky. A Lake Superior snow-storm
isolates a ship in space. Sue is nowhere—only a little patch oi black
water and a great opaque, smothering
cloud oi driving snow, close over-arch-
ed and all-enveloping. It is at times
like these that most oi the lake disasters occur. "Went ashore ih a
snowstorm," is the commonest explanation of loss by shipwreck on tbe
Jpper Lakes.
When it is considered that a very
small divergence irom the angle oi
the prescribed course might, in 'the
reach oi a night's run, make a difference of fifty miles, and when it is
further considered that some oi the
"passages" are narrower by iar than
that at Thunder Cape, opening up into
the famous Thunder Bay, a doorway
of lour and a hall miles, it will be
admitted tnat loose course, however
tney may be considered by the sea
captain oi aim's acquaintance, won't
uo on Lake Superior. Two degie.s
may make but little difference io a
liner ou tne Atlantic. The divergence

I run back to Owen Sound.
On neuring Flower Pot Island the
captain acui a man back to read the

And there she had to stay until tiie

Captain Brown's pap?is were wi'h
drawn on the hiad of this accident,
and though the vessel went into tlr.t

had to be replaced, he remained under suspension for nine no tis. Not
when, in response to a petition signed
by the captains aid mat's oi ih: (r at

C.P.R., which goes to show how com

Concerning the Bishop of Ripon,
who has been prominent during the
Church Congress, many stories are
told. Although he is a magnificent
preacher he never talks above Ihe
heads of his congregation. Queen Victoria had a veiy high opinion of his
preaching, and a freind once asked
iiim il he felt nervous when preaching
before Her Majesty. "I never addrtts
the Queen at all," replied the bishop.
"I know there will bc present the
Queen, the piincos, the household,
and thc servants, down to the scullery-maid—and I preach to the scullery-maid." Once, while addressing
an open-air meeting, an atheist asked
him il he believed that Jonah was
swallowed by a whale. "When I go to
heaven 1 will ask Jonah," said his
lordship. "But supposing," the other
persisted, "he is not there?" "Then
you wilt have to ask him," was th"
| iiuick  letort.

A Naw Tipping Hat
One oi the most curious ol all
labor saving devices is that ior a self-
tipping hat, according to Papular
Mechanics. The inventor, believing
that even a Beau Brummell wastes
much valuable energy in the Irequent
lilting oi his hat, describes his invention as "a novel device lor automatically effecting polite salutations by
the elevation and rotation oi the hat
on the head ol the saluting person, or
persons srluted, the action ol the hat
being produced 'by mechanism therein and without the use ot the hands
in nny manner." The hat is provided
in the crown with a clock gearing
which is Bet into action by a pendulum. When the man bows the pen-
duluni swings, and the spring gearing being rel"ased thereby, raises
and tips the hat.

Eighty years ago the total earnings

Isles, amounted to SIS millions oi
pounds. These earnings have been
Increased at such an amazing rate
that ior the year ending March 31st,
1010, they passed the thousand-million mark, says Answers in a recent
issue.
Oi course, thiB does not mean that
we are all twice as rich as our
ancestors were in 1830, ior, in the
meantime, the population of the
country has nearly doubled; so, in
reality, we are very much where we
were before.
The jump in the national income
irom last year to this year is, according to the "Report ot the Commissioners of Inland Revenue," no less
than twenty-nine million pounds; but
this increase is largely explainable
by the iar more effective methods lor
ascertaining income which have recently been introduced.
For instance, in 1808-8 only fourteen individuals and seventy-nine
firms paid income-tax on incomes ot
£50,000 or over. These figures rose
in a twelvemonth to twenty individuals, and ninety-nine firms. The increase is too great to be natural, and
must be due to the new forms oi income-tax inquisition.
Alter all, the question oi our gross
national income is not oi any particular interest to you or me, who work
lor our living. What we want to
Know is whether wages and salaries
are on an upward or downward grade.

or three shillings, and' at the same
time, the hours oi work have slightly
decreased.
Iromounders, who, in 1886, were
paid 38s. now get £2, or more. Shipwrights' wages have remained fairly
steady at about 42s.; but the number
oi hours worked weekly has diminished.
Compositors, cabinet-makers, and
coal miners are all rather better off
than tney used to be.
In tue textile trades workers are
quite 10 per cent, better off to-day
man they were only twelve years ago.
lhe average weekly rise in all the
weaving and spinning industries between 1896 and 1908 ia 2s. lOd. per

Oddly enough, but quite justly, the
women employed in the Lancashire
mills have received a much larger
rise, comparatively speaking, than
have their husbands and brtAhers.
In the cotton mills, the men receive au average weekly wage ol 29s.
Ul., and the women oi 18s. 8d. Twelve
years ago the average wage oi tha

Ihese figures which we have given

they rule much higher. In Oldham,
ior •instance, the skilled hand gets
about 42s. a week, and his wile 18s ;
wlnle the children, as hall-timers,
earn 2s. 8d. or 6s. a piece. It is a
poor family in Oldham that is not
earning its £3 a week.
Agncultural wages have not improved on thc snine scale as those ot
other workers. They range from 22s.
a week in Renfrewshire down to the
miserable pittance oi 9s. in County
Mayo, Ireland. There are a score of
counties in the Green Isle where the
farmhand gets no more than 10s. a
week and six English counties wliete
they do not ex?eecl 15s. Oddly enough,
wages are lowest in the arable
counties — that is, where most of our
wheat is produced.
Clerks oi all kinds are doing worn

show that the salaries paid to employes of companies and firms are

Pills.
Nerves that are over-worked or
weak quickly indicate their distress
by pain. Tliat pain may be neuralgia or inflamed nerves, usually affecting the head, but often the spine
and limbs, lt may be nervous dyspepsia, easily started by worry, excitement or weakness, lt may be St.
Vitus dunce, a common affliction
among children, or neurasthenia, a
condition of general nervous exhaustion accompanied by acute melancholy. Worst ol all the pain may
signal the early stages ot paralysis
ir nervous decay. All these disorders signify that the hungry nerves
are clamoring for nourishment in thc
iorm of good, rich blood. The num-
rous cuics of the acove named nerv-
jus diseases and weakness in both
sexes by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
ire accounted for by the fact that

A REMARKABLE NOTE.
George Cruikthank't Bank Bill Waa
the Beginning of Penal Reforms.
It was no banking corporation, but
an artist, that issued what was perhaps the most remarkable banknote
ever put out, and this artist was no
other than George Cruikshank. Tho
issuance oi this note was coincident
with the beginning of the last century, at a time when the penalties for
crime in England were excessively
harsh. About three hundred offences
were punishable by death, these
ranging frnm murder to the theft of
a piece of cloth or the passing of a
counterfeit one-pound note. Hanging
was, therefore, so common that to
witness an execution was among the
most popular forms ot amusement.
All windows that commanded a view
of Newgate or Tyburn were let at
high prices, and parties were made
up among people in the Country to
go tn see a hanging.
Now it chanced one day, in the
year 1818, that George Cruikshank
was passing Newgate when a great
crowd waa gathered before it. His
curiosity was excited, and he went
forward and saw the execution oi
several men and women. Horrified at
the spectacle, he inquired as to the
crimes committed by the unfortunates and learned that the women
were being hanged for passing one-
pound notes. He learned, too, that
the poor creatures ^iten sinned in
ignorance, being the dupes oi men
who sent them to buy some trifle and
return the change.
Cruikshank went home a-id. moved
by pity and shame, sketched a grotesque caricature of a banknote. He
called it a bank restriction note—not
to be imitated, says a writer in
Harper's Weekly.
On it he represented a place of
execution, with a row of criminals
hanging by the neck. The spaces
were filled in with halters ond manacles. There was a figure ol Britannia devouring her children, and
around it were transports bearing to
Australia the lucky or unlucky ones
who had escaped death. In place ot
the well-known signature of Abraham
Newland was that ol "J. Ketch."
This noie was seen by Cruikshank's
publisher, Hone, who begged it for
publication. So Cruikshank sketched
the note and gave it to Hone, who
exhibited it for sale in his window
with startling effect. Crowds gathered round and purchased so eagerly
that the issue was soon exhausted.
Cruikshank was kept hard at work
making more etchings, and the
crowds grew so great that the street
was blocked and the mayor had to
send soldiers to clear it. Hone realized three thousand five hundred dollars in a few days.
But the effect in other directions
wns still more startling. The bans
directors were furious. They had met
with trouble from the prison reformer, Elizabeth Fry, but they seemed
to have defeated her. Here, however,
wos an adversary of a different
stump whom they could neither si
lencc nor crush. They held a meet
ing and stopped the issue of one-
pound notes, a measure which had a
sensible effect in diminishing the
number of hangings at Newgate.
Soon aJterwards an indignant public
compelled Parliament to make juster
laws.

Churches In Colonial Days.
The New England churches in colonial davs were all unheated. In

these places of worship lind stove*
until the middle of the last century.
The chill of the damp places, never
heated from autumn to spring and
closed antl dark throughout the week,
was hard for every one to bear. In
some of the log built meeting houses-
fur bags made of wolf skins were
nailed to the seats, and in the winter church attendants thrust their

IFRIDA'V,   FEBRUARY  3,   1911
The reciprocity agreement negotiated by representatives of the Dominion and United States governments has superseded all othej;topics
of discussion locally. Whether it
spells ruin or prosperity appears to
depend entirely on one's political
affiliations. If you are a Conservative, its ratification means that the
country will go to the dogs; if a
Liberal, its adoption will be the
making of a great nation north of
the international boundary line. To
the Socialists it is probably immaterial what becomes of it, because
from their • viewpoint the canines
are already in full possession of the
land. However, as Canada makes an
average reduction of but 2A per cent
on goods imported into the country
from the States, while the average
reduction on goods imported by the
United from Canada is from 12 to 15
per cent, the treaty is undoubtedly
in our favor; and as the most economical trend of commerce on this
continent is from north to south,
The Sun hos no heaitancy in predicting tbat the ratification of the
treaty would prove beneficial to both
countries. British Columbia's interest in the treaty is mainly con'
fined to the section which places fruit
and farm produce on the free list
The Conservative politicians say
that this means ruin to the agricultural industry of the province. But
we ate inclined to bslieve that they
unnecessarily alarmed. The United
States does not raise enough fruit to
supp'y ils own market. We believe
that the agricultural industry in this
province has been advanced to a
Stage where our products can successfully compete in the markets of
the world.
SHORT COURSES
Meetings Under Auspices of
Department of Agriculture
A. hockey match between the
Greenwood juniors and the Phoenix
juniors was played at Pboenix on
Tuesday evening. The score was 7
to 5 in favor of Phoenix.
The provincial department of
agriculture has arranged for a series
of "short courses" in fruit growing.
The department recognizes the importance of having every fruit
grower acquainted with the princi
pies of soil culture, tree growth, etc.
thnt underlie his everyday operations. The principles of fruit grow
ing are not less important than the
practice. The application of principle to practice will be a feature of
all the lectures. The different
methods of culture necessary for
most economical production in each
particular district will be emphasized. Men in every branch of
farming will find the lectures on
soils, plant growth, and cultivation,
of value to them, and all interested
in agriculture are invited to attend
these meetings.
The meetings in this city will be
held on Thursday and Friday, February 9 and 10. The following is
tbe program:
Thursday,February 9—2:00 p.m
"Types of Soils in Relation to Practical Fruit Growing," B. Hoy; 3:30
p.m., "Physiology of Plants in Relation to Practical Fruit Growing,"
J. F. Carpenter; 7:30 p.m., "Orchard
Pests and Their Control," B. Hoy;
8:30 p.m., "Sprays and Spraying,"
J. F. Carpenter.
Friday, February 10—2:00 p.m.,
"Selection of Nursery Stoek. Orchard Plans and Planting," M. S. Middleton; 3:30 p.m., "Irrigation and
the Control of Soil Moisture," B.
Hoy; 7:90 p.m., "Winter Injury,
and Its Prevention," B. Hoy; 8:00
p.m., "Pruning: Summer and Win
ter,"M. S. Middleton.
The only policy holder who
doesn't need to pay hia premiums is dead. The only man
who doesn't need to advertise
is the man who has retired
from business.
W. Carruthers, travelling
passenger and freight agent of
the Southern Pacific railway,
has some original ideas on sizing the worth of a town.
"When I enter a new city," he
says, "I do not look up the
newspapers to see the amount
of sensational news they print,
but turn to the advertising
columns to see the character
and volume of advertising carried by the local advertisers.
I can always tell whether a
town is a live or dead one by
that."
Some business men are so fond of
being deceived that they even endeavor to believe that they can reach
the consumers of this district without advertising in The Sun.
Show cards for widnows and inside
are a   fine  form   of  silent salesmen.
j Make them  brief, terse  and   pointed.
'   Print  them   plainly, to be  read at a
glance.

Year Old Girl Cured of
Kidney Trouble
Mrs Alex Moore, of James St.,
Oxford, N.S., says: "Booth's Kidney
Pills cured our little daughter, Christina, aged six years, of many symptoms of kidney weakness. She complained of a sore back, the kidney secretions were frequTSnt and uncontrollable, especially at night. Her stomach was weak nnd her appetite poor.
This caused her to In.ve frequent
headaches, and the least exertion
would tire her.
I We had tried
I nany remedies,

mprove. Finally
te learned of

'ills and pro-
J uteil a box. In a
shorttimeshowus
well and dues not now complain about
her back, the kidney secretions have
become normal, nntl she plays around
the house with nu apparent fatigue

pleasure ln now doing."
Bladder Trouble.
Mr. C. B. Newhof. 10 Delaware

"Since my advanced age I find that
I have been frequently troubled with
urinary ailments. The bladder seemed
Irritated, and my physician said that
it was catarrh caused by a protracted
cold which would be difficult-to overcome on account of my advanced years.
I took Peruna, hardly daring to believe
that I would be helped, but found to
my relief that I soon began to mend.
The irritation gradually subsided, and
the urinary difficulties passed away. I
have enjoyed excellent health now for
the past seven months. * I enjoy my
meals, sleep soundly, and am as well as
I was twenty years ago. I give all
praise to Peruna."
WARRANT FOR CONDUCTOR.
Wanted for Stealing Fares and Selling Tickets.
(From Montreal Gazette.)
Judge Lunctot, at the.request ol the
crown prosecutor, hus Issued a bench
warrant for the arrest of £. Smith, a
former sleeping-car conductor in the
employ of the Cunadiun Pacific railway company, who nt one time ran
between Montreal and Vuncouver, and
latterly between Montreal and Toronto.
Eurly in October information reached tlie Crown authorities which led up
to Smith's arrest lor stealing sleeping
car fines, and for stealing und selling
i railway tickets to various persons in
Montreal uml elsewhere. Siiiitn had
a preliminary hearing and was committed for trial to the Court of King's
Bench, his case being Bet for the 10th.
When called, he iailed to appear,
witli the result that his bail was forfeited and a bench warrant issued for
his arrest.
The case caused a good deal of interest in railway circles, and it is
probable that otlier than railway people will become interested, as the
names and addresses of quite a number of people with whom he has been
.lo.ng business are known, and it is
likely that before the matter is finally disposed of several of the hunters
for bargains in railway transportation will be dealt with.
"It is really too bad," said a high
official of the Canadian Pacilic, "that
the travelling public should suggest
such dishonesty to conductors. If
passengers would refrain from making conductors steal from the company by offering them facilities and
inducements to do so, it would be
better for them in every way. We
have the names of a good many men
who have done this in Montreal and
other places and they include some
pretty prominent men. Morally they
are os guilty, if not more so, than the
conductors whom they train to become thieves, and the practice of trying to get this cheap transportation
at the expense of the company and
the honesty of the conductors cannot
be too sharply repressed.
"In the present instance it has led
to the ruin of a young man and the
breaking up of his home. While we
are sorry for those who suffer by it,
the company must stop this business
nf stealing fares, and prosecution will
follow every instance that is discovered."

Weak, Sickly Babies
' Make Home Wretched
No home is happy where there is a
sick baby. The sufferings of the little one makes the whole household
wretched, Ior what mother or father
would not rather suffer themselves
than to see their little one suffer.
But tliere is no reason for wretched
homes because baby is ill. Baby's
Own Tablets will cure all thc minor
ills of babyhood and childhood; not
only that, but an occasional dose of
the Tablets will keep- baby well.
Thousands of mothers have found
happiness through the Tablets making their little ones well and happy.
Among them is Mrs. C. C. Roe, of
Georgetown, Ont., who writes: "1
can heartily recommend Baby's Own
Tablets as a help to the baby during the hot summer season. We have
used them and are much pleased with
their results." The Tablets are sold
hy medicine dealers or by mail at
25 cents a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.
"Did your father leave your mother
much?" asked the man with intentions of tlie little boy in black.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages,
und that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is the only positive cure now
known to the medical fraternity.
Catarrh being a constitutional disease
requires a constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting directly upon the blood
and mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation of
the disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the constitution and assisting nature in doing its
work. The proprietors have so much
faith in its curative powers that they
offer One Hundred Dollars for ary
case that it fails to cure. Send for

A Cure for Rheumatism.—A painful
and persistent lot in of rheumatism is
caused hy impurities in the blood, the
result of defective action of the liver
and kidneys. The blood becomes
tainted by the introduction of uric
acid, which causes much pain in the
tissues and in the joints. Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills are known to have effected many remarkable cures, and
their use is strongly recommended.
A trial of them will convince anyone
of their value.

An Embracing Remark.
The head o( one of Toronto's theological oo.leges is well-known as a
careful and deliberate speaker. He
takes his time and chooses his word*
slowly, often pausing Ior sevoral se-
soi.ds to be sure of the right one.
and consequently he usually expresses
himself clearly. In spite of his care!
however, he occasionally makes a
slip, like less cautious speakers, and
says something which he does not
really mean. Before he became interested in educational, work, he had a
church, in which the work of the various societies proved highly successful. One Sunday morning, the minister was giving out a few notices regarding social activities of the church,
ond he took the opportunity to give
some advice to the young men. When
he had concluded, he paused and evidently recognized that his word?
might have been given a more general
application. He accordingly added,
"When I made those remarks to the
young men, 1 hoped they would embrace the young ladies of the cougie-
gation."
Significant
It is related that a gentleman who
was rtying a horse in coinpany with
a jockey, noticed, after having driven
him for a mile or two, that he pulled
pretty hard, requiring constant watch,
ing and a steady rein, and the gentle,
man enquired: "Do you think it is
just the horse for a lady to drive?"
"Well, sir," answered the jockey, "I
must say that I shouldn't want to
marry the woman who could drive
that horse."
An Ambitious Canoe Trip.
Captain V'oss, of Victoria, B.C., is
one of the world's most daring cockle,
shell nav.'gotors, set out to circumnavigate the globe in the Tilikum, S
converted Alaskan war canoe, on May
21, 1901. Although rigged as a three-
masted schooner, she was only of two
and a half tons, 32 leet on the water
line, 6 feet in beam, and drawing 22
inches of water. The cabin was 8 leet
by 6 feet, and 4 1-2 feet high. Stores
sufficient for six months and two sixty-gallon tanks of water were carried.
Mr. Luxton, of The Winnipeg Free
PresB, accompanied him as far as the
Fiji Islands, where another passenger
was shipped, but five days alter leaving he fell overboard and was drown-
ed, and after that the captain was
alone. He met gale after gale, which
smashed the foremast, so that navigation had to be stopped while it wa.-
taken out, spliced, and restepped. No
wonder that crowds flocked down to
each port of call to see the intrepid

Dodd's Kidney Pills, and I found relief in thc first box. Six boxes made
nie perfectly well."

interesting." "Yes; it's delightful.

He Did Not Need a Wife
Kansas newspapers are getting a lot
of pleasure out of this incident, which
is said to have actually happened in
an eastern Kansas county. A farmer
received a note from n young man
who had been "going with his
daughter. It read: "Deer Sur: Wood
like your dinners hand in marriage.
She and me are in luve. 1 think I
needs a wife.   Youis trooly."
The fanner replied hy letter, saying: "Friend: You don't need a wife.
You need a spelling book! Get one
and study it u year. Then write me
again."—Kansas City Journal.
An officer bet another a large sum
of money that he could not empty a,
quart bottle of champagne at one
draught. He asked for half an hour
to think tlie matter over, which was
granted. When he returned he took
the champagne, drank it off, and
claimed the money. He was asked
why it took him so long to accept the
bet. "Well," he said, "I was not
quite sure that I could do it, my
dear fellow, so I went home first
and tried the experiment."

Amy Wallace slammed Ihe gate of
tbe chicken yard und came duwn tbe
path with tragedy written on ber
stormy countenance and In Ibe very
pose uf ber outstretched baud fruni
wblcb dangled tbe lifeless remains of
a promising .veiling broiler.
"Another une?" queried ber sister
dlscuusulutcly. "Tbat makes-let me
see—seventy-two chickens killed In tbe
last sis weeks. At a dollar a pair those
broilers would bave fetched $3U!"
"It Is an outrage," sputtered Amy,
flinging tbe defunct cblcken far from
ber sight. "That cat must be killed
at once!"
"Did you send Mrs. Beemer a bill
for tbe chickens?" aaked Louise, Intent
on ber needlework.
Amy nodded.   "Sent it Monday."
"Heard from ber today?"
"Ye-es."
"Did she say sbe waa a soldier's
widow and lhat the gray cat waa ber
only solace?" Louise smiled mischievously.
"Word  for  word.    Laugh.  If you
must, young woman," weut on Amy j
gloomily, "but remember, please, Ibat
1 am not a talented female artist wbo
can earn ibe price of a gown wltb a
few daubs of paint I am a mere,
commonplace plodder, and I haven't
a talent In the world save for poultry
raising, and now I begin to doubt my
ability to succeed at that"
"I'll see Mrs. Beemer myself." announced Louise, arising and folding
her work wtib an air of decision. "She
must either pay you $36 and promise
Immunity from further annoyance
from ihe cat or abe must kill lhe
beast."
"She won't do either," mourned Amy
from tbe piazza as Louise passed out
of Ibe gate and crossed the street tu
the abode of tbe Widow Beemer.
Louise Wallace found the Widow
Beemer seated on tbe back sloop In
tbe act of placing a saucer uf milk
before tbe huge gray cat. Epbrnlm.
"Evening. I-ouey," remarked the
widow amiably. "It's aome warmer
today."
"It Is." agreed Louise coldly. "Mra.
Beemer. tbat cat baa got to go."
"You mean Epbralm?" quavered tbe
widow.
"Of course."
"I'm a soldier's widow"- began
Ann Beemer ln tb'e melancholy tune
she reserved for that oft repealed
statement, but Louise lifted a slim
finger wuralngly.
"And Kpbralm la yonr only solace."
added tbe girl dryly. "We know nil
tbat, Mrs. Beemer. and we are very
sorry, but yon must see that we can't
continue to lose chickens at tbis rate.
It's preposterous. Epbrnlm seems tn
kill Just for tbe mere pleasure of the
deed. He's a cokl blooded old murderer."  '
The pale gray' Epbralm turned a
light yellow eye In ber direction, and
• faint sneer lifted his black lip. Then
bla red velvet tongue darted ln and
out of tbe milk, and bla eyea were
hidden.
Aun Beemer sighed. "Very well."
abe sniffed tearfully. "I'll bave to
give bim up. I guess. He's tbe only
comfort I've got now. But you can
just lake bim away and kill bim.
Louey. I'll kiss bim goodby If you
don't mind."
"If you will pnt tbe cat In a bag,
'Mr*. Beemer. I'll find somebody to dis-
liose of bim." Interposed Louise Impatiently.
. Wltb a bard little glitter In ber black
eyes. Ann Beemer brought a covered
basket and thrust tbe scratching, spitting Epbralm within. Sbe tied tbe
cover securely and gave Ibe basket
Into Louise's hands. Tben sbe threw
her checked aprou over ber bead and
rocked mournfully to and fro.
Louise paused at'tbe gate and. looking backward, felt a pang of pity for
the old womnn. Then she thought of
the mournful Amy across tbe street
and Ephraim's bad reputation tn ibe
community as a cblcken alayer and
passed through Ibe gate.
"I'll run around to Latimer's and see
If one of tbe boys won't chloroform tbe
rat Amy will be relieved. Indeed,
wben I return and tell ber tbat Epbralm has gone to Join bla forefathers."
lt was no light task to curry tbe
shaking basket within which tbe big
gray cat fougbt tlgerlsbly for escape.
tier hands were qnlte sore when sbe
reached the Latimer place and found
herself In tbe midst of a curious group
of boys and girls at the back door.
Mrs. Latimer came out and Joined
tbem.
"I want somebody to chloroform a
cat." said Louise. "It's Epbralm, yon
know: he's heen killing off our broilers.   1 tbuugbt one of the boys might
I'll give a dollar."
Mrs. Latimer shook ber bead. "I
don't want any of my folks to kill a
cat. Miss Wallace: It's awful bad Inek.
you know. Perhaps Peter Swunson's
folks will do It for you. Swedes don't
believe In luck and such things."
"Very well." snid Louise wearily.
"Will you let Billy carry the basket
for me?   Ephraim's very heavy."
"1 guess there won't be any barm ln
that-and he was wishing this morning Ibat he ciinld earn a quarter." Insinuated Billy's shrewd mother.
"I'll see that he gets a quarter for
the lob." «mlled Louise.   And Iben, followed by the curious Billy and trailed i
by the remaining Latlmers. tbey sought
I'eter Swanson. tbe blacksmith.
"1 couldn't kill no cal. miss." said
Peter apologetically, when Louise bad
told ber story. "Tbey tell me It brings
bad luck. Yust now I can't afford no
bad times. Maybe tbe Eyetallans In
tbe Holler might"—
Louise sought tbe Italian settlement
ln the Hollow. I'letru Ituncnglla
averred that Epbralm possessed tbe
evil eye and crossed bis brown fingers
sbudderlngly. Even tbe rattling crisp-
ness of greenbacks failed to break bis
resolution.
Old Abraham Johnson's black face
expressed mingled greed aud alarm
wben approached by Louise and her
funereal train. He gazed longingly at
tbe money and then clutched the voodoo charm that bung about bis throat
"I bate to dls'plut yo', Miss Louey.

nlval ob ole Eph Beemer. hlsselfl I

t'unk you. honey."
Tbese were examples of the various
interviews tbat Louise beld that morning. Noon time found her at her own
gate tugging Ihe heavy basket con-
talnlng'tbe still active Epbrnlm. Her
slater drew forward a roektug chair
ln tbe lurch and Louise fell Into Its
comfortable embrace.
"What is In tbe basket?" asked Amy.
"Epbralm."
"Tell me about It—do." crowed Amy
Louise told ber. "1 ran't find a person wbo will make way with lhat rut
for love or money, and I believe Mrs
Beemer knew 1 couldn't—she gave
Epbralm Into my bands almost loo
willingly." ahe ended plaintively. "1
didn't realize tbat Intelligent people
could be so silly and suiierxtitlous."
"We must dispose of Ihe rut our
selves, iben," said Amy firmly. "We
are uot suiiersiltlous."
"So. we ure not, but It's horrible to
kill anything like ibat. yon know. I'll
go out this afternoon and see If I ran'i
Una some boy who will du It. Tbey
can't all be fools."
At tbat Instant tbe basket containing
tbe doomed cat swayed violently on
tbe grass where Louise had dropped
ber burden: Iben tbe cover flew up.
and with a spiteful hiss Epbralm dashed out and scrambled up tbe black
walnut tree over tbeir astonished
heads.
"That Impish Tommy Latimer must
have untied lbe cords." said Louise
bitterly. "I saw him quarreling with
Billy over the basket—and I gave tbem
Wl reins Ion "
Amy had picked up a large slone and
weighed It In her band. "I believe I
could bit thui ul." sbe said viciously
"If 1 can It will stun him—perhaps kill
bim." She shuddered slightly, aimed
tbe missile carefully at the crouching
Epbralm. threw lhe stone and turned
her buck. Louise had closed ber eyes
tightly.
They beard the stone crash through
tbe brunches and tben tbere followed
a slight groan.    After thut, alienee.
"I believe I killed bim," muaned
Amy.
"You certainly rame very near It,"
said an eiusperuted masculine voire,
and tbe sisters turned lo view tbe In
dignuut cuiinlenuure of Mr. Ituperi
Ames. Thui young gentleman clutch
ed une shoulder as If In pain.
Over bis bead Epbralm crouched,
spitting angrily and sharpening bis
cluws un Ihe rough branch to wblcb
be clung.
"Did I strike you. Rupert?" demand
ed Ainv penitently. "1 wus trying In
hit tbe rat. yuu see."
"Yuu must lie very fond of him." nb-
servd Mr. Ames, drawing near to tbem.
"I'm very sorry. 1 hope you are not
badly hurt. Fetch tbe witrb hazel,
please. Louise." Amy let her bund
rest In Ruiiert's close clasp longer tban
he had dared hope. "We hardly ex-
pecteti lo see you," she added pointedly.
"I felt tbnt you needed me." lied Mr.
Ames cheerfully. "My Inner consciousness told me yuu were In trouble of
some surt and required masculine assistance.   What can 1 do for you?"
Wben Louis returned wltb the lotion ihey told the story of Epbralm
aud tbe slain broilers. "Will ytm kill
the cat. Rupert?" tbey pleaded tear-
fully.
Mr. Ames shook bla head. "I
couldn't," he said regretfully. "Tou
see, I'm superstitious, too, 1 am." be
asserted lu the face of tbeir incredulous looks. "1 know If I killed that
cat and every one of bla nine lives
were extinguished—why, I'd never
bave a chance of marrying Amy after
ull!"
Louise smiled, and tbe swift color
came to Amy's cheeks. "Tbat was all
settled six months ago," sbe aaid coldly. "I'm going to be nn Independent
bulsness woman and"—
"Very good," said Mr. Ames crisply.
"1 must be running along, now. My
motor's down tbe road a piece—bad a
breakdown, you know, and Just
thought I'd drop In and see you. Hope
.you get the hest of Epbralm."
Louise disappeared Into Ibe bouse,
ond Amy's face lost Its color. "Then
you wnu't kill Epbrnlm?" sbe faltered.
"I cannot. Amy. but I'll tell you bow
you can get rid of bim. Just marry
me und give up this notion nf poultry'
raising. Louise Is dying to get hack to
town, and I want you—1 need you. Let
Ephralm shift for himself."
"You merely happened In bere.' You
bad a breakdown." said Amy severely.
"My resolution not to see you brake
down." confessed Rupert, drawing ber
into bis arms. "For my part. It's great
good luck not to kill a cat eh, Epbralm?"
But the rat. taking advantage of
lovers' meeting, wus merely a pale gray
streak headed for tbe welcoming arms
of the Widow Beemer.
THE INDIAN'S BLANKET.
In the House Library.
Onp tall volume in the Parliamentary library at Ottawa contains al!
the issues of "Le Canadien." the
first Canadian newspaper, which was
sunnressed by Governor Craia in
1810. It is a small sheet of two pages
about eighteen inches long, and it
serves to remind one how far wf
have traveled from that time to these
duvR of huge Saturday editions.
The oldest book in the library is
"La Somme Rurale," a body of rural
regulations of various kinds, published in 1680. But the hook on Which
Mr. Descelles especially prides himself is a volume of religious m»dito-
tions from the collection of Henry
th" Third of France. It is a beautiful book, admirably printed and
illvstrafed, and bears on its wonderfully tool"d cover the .skull and
motto which distinguished the bo"ks
belonging to this monarch. The
motto is "Snes Meo Deus." It was
published in 1583. Another book
which belonged to a character famous
in French history is the "Cassandre"
bv Calnrenede, which was owned hy
Madame de Pompadour.
There ore two original editions nl
those interminable romances which
occupied, the attention of ladies ol
leisure before the days of the novel.
One is "L'Astree" by Honore Durfe.
in fourteen volumes, published in
1C_S. The other is that famoi;.-> work,
"Le Qrand Cyrus," by Scudery.
which was published in 1653. This
edition is wonderfully bound in morocco, snd once formed part of the
library of the fomtes" de Verne, s
great lady of that period.
Will Croaks' New Role.
An early working-man member tor
Parliament, Mr. Will' Crooks, since
his defeat at the last general elec
tion, has been keeping the "wolf
from the door," as he bluntly expresses it, by lecturing; for, of course,
he iB no longer in receipt ol the $1,000
a year allowed to members of the Labor Party in the House of Commons.
He is being kept very busy as a lecturer, however, and will probably
stand for Woolwich again in the Labor
interest at the next election. Mr.
Crooks is a man who has risen from
the  workhouse.    A   s.-ious  accident
firevented his father from earning his
iving, and the whole family went into the union.
Alter the workhouse period he got
a job at a grocer's at 60 cents a week
and his dinner, and later on became
a blacksmith. After hia marriage he
was out of work for aome time, tramping the streets; but at last got a job
in a brewery at $10 a w _ek. It i*
those early struggles which make
Will Crooks so sympathetic with people "down on their luck," and provided him with that knowledge of the
under-world which makes him such
an authority on questions dealing witli
the masses.
"Merry Monkey."
Not exactly nn appropriate nome
for one of the Pope's cardinals, perhaps, but it was nevertheless earned
by Cardinal Merry del Val, who has
figured somewhnt largely in the trouble between Rome and Spain, when
he was at a private school near
Slough, where he received his early
education, for the papal secretary hnd
a great propensity for playing practical jokes. The cardinal is still a
young man—he will not be forty-five
until October 10th—but for seven
years he has been the power behind
the papal throne and the virtual
sovereign of 400.000.000 subjects, embracing every nationality. The cardinal, who is a Londoner by birth,
made up his mind tn enter the church
at an early age. Ordained a priest
of the Archdiocese ot Westminster,
he migl t now have been liihiri-.- jn

Seeing Around Corners
There are mony insects whicn have

so to speak, behind and at the sides.

Qrsat  Care   Exercised   In  Choice  el
Design and Coloring.
There are two important lactors that
in the mind of the brave must be present to comprise a genuine Indian
blanket, and the skill and judgme'/t
he exercises in making his selection
are worthy ot mention. Whether he U
to possess one or twenty blankets has
' nothing to do with the .- ..< used
in selecting them.
His lirst demand is that the robe
contain three colors—red, yellow and
green, usually one of the three being
tlie prevailing shade.
Secondly, he demands that the
blanket have three bold stripes, all the
same pattern and carrying the same
colors, two being ten inches Irom each
edge of the robe, while the third and
centre stripe is a trifle wider and also
runs the entire length ol the blanket.
When the blanket is worn bj  the
Indian the centre stripe (alls in the I
middle of the  back, giving the tall
and stately effect so much desired.
II, perchance, the IHian is in
mourning, the pattern is not changed
but the blanket contains only dark
blue and black as colors. The man
ner in which the Indian wraps his
blanket about him denotes very often
his state of mind. Grief or sorrow, foi
instance, would be marked by the
blanket being drawn over the lower
portion of the face, leaving exposed
the nose and eyes only.
There is no article of wearing apparel as much used as the blanket by
the Indian. As a saddle while ridimt
his pony, a shelter or bed while hunting or fishing, co/efully hung about
tlie sides and bottom ol his tepee dur
ing the winter and an indispensable
covering the entire year, the blanket
is ever in use.
Even on the hottest summer days
an Indian would be laughed at by the
members of his tribe should he leave
off wearing his blanket. His theory
is thnt if "it keeps out the cold in
the winter it will keeo out the heat in
the summer." Whiie he may not
care to buy anytning else expensive
the price of a suitable blanket is never questioned, but it would be difti
cult indeed to deceive him as to the
texture of any robe.
A squaw will imitate almost any
thing that pleases her fancy, but in
the matter of her blanket oi shawl
she exhibits an unusual amount ol individuality. With great care and patience she designs her blanket, and
when she places the jrder with the
mill man he does not dare duplicate
it until she has had an opportunity tc
wear it. If she makes the request
thot it shall not be duplicated her
wishes aie regarded, because it is the
one article she possesses in which ex
clusiveness is much coveted and aim
because what would please one squaw
would not appear at all attractive t«.
another.
The lightweight blanket or shawl iB
thrown over the head of the squaw,
and unless she is able to purchase a
bright-colored silk kerchief it will
serve as her only bonnet as well. It
is just as common a sight now to
see the papoose securely bound on
the back ol its mother by a portion
ul her blanket as it used to be to see
the wee head of the Indian babe peeping Irom the "tekas," or frame cradle,
which was carried on the back of tbe
mother.
PANIC IN SHIPWRECK.
When Men Loss Their Wits and Their
Manhood as Wall.
What has most struck me in my
many experiences of shipwreck has
lieen the strangely diverse ways in
which the passengers acquit themselves under intense excitement snd
panic, said a lifeboatman to the
writer.
Women cry, faint and cling to each
other, but are least trouble.. Men often act very strangely. I remember
one man throwing into the lifehoat a
heavy trunk which he wanted to save,
but which we promptly heoved overboard.
8omo men become quite panic
stricken. I've seen Btrong men, probably brave enough in other cases,
lighting fiercely for the lifebuoys ond
thrusting the women and children
aside in frantic endeavors to leap
into the bout first; yet strangely
enough, one mon who thus disirraced
himself hnn since obtained the Unyul
Humane Society's medal for soving
life nt sea. thrice volunteering with
a scratch crew in aid of a distressed
vessel,
I've known others who became' so
stupefied with fright as to resist all
attempts at rescuing them, begging
to he left to die and hoving to be
forcibly thrown in*o the lifehoat.
Some persons frequently become half
demented, and I ve known several
coses where they hove in o frenzy
committed suicide hy positively iurnp-
ine heodlong into the seo and drowning themselves, and one mnn. to
insure his sinking, filled his pocketB
with coal.
Some years ago another passenecr.
hearing the ship hod stni"k, went
ond drowned himself in the bathroom, anticipating his late, as it
were.
I remember another cose where a
passenger hanged himself in his cabin
lust as the lifeboat arrived.

Hyomei
The Breatheablo Remedy for Catarrh.
The rational way to combat catarrh
is the -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 discovery of Hyomei (pro
nounced Higli-o inc.)
Hyomei is the most powerful vet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through the inhaler over the intlamcd
and germ ridden membrane four or
live times a day, and in a few days the
germs will disappear.
A complete   Hymnei outfit, including the inhaler, costs $1.00, ami extra
I bottles, if afterwards needed, cost but
I 50 cent.    Obtainable from your druggist or postpaid from the K. T. Booth
! Co., Ltd., Fort  Erie,  Onti    Hyomei
