Fertilizer for Best Vegetable Display
An important meeting of 'the directors ofthe Grand Forks Agricultural association was held on Wednesday evening, the following mem
hen being present: Fred Clark,
August Scbnitter, A. 3. McKim, R.
J. Gardner, C C. Heaven, E. W.
.Stuart and W. E. Hadden.
A new special prise, donated hy
P. Burns & Co., was added to the
priie .list The prize consists of
SOU pounds of No A brand blood
and bone fertizer. Exhibits entered
in competition for this prize 'oust
consist of the following vegetables:
24 potatoes, 2 cabbages, 6 carrots,
6 beets, 6 onions, 6 parsnips and G
Half a dozen communications
were read, discussed and finally dis
posed of.
Tbe matter of sprinkling tbs baseball grounds was left in the bands
of the old committee.
._ A. S. McKim reported that the
Phoenix, Greenwood and Mother
Lode teams would take* part in the
football tournament. «
The directors decided to let the
privilege of conducting a refreshment stand at tbe skating rink, and
applications from parties desiring to
secure tbe privilege will be received
by them.
A special meeting of ihe directors
will be beld next Monday night,
when tbe program of the race meet
wbich is to be, held io connection
witb the fair will be finally  settled.
The theory is entertained by
some tbat after the Lake mines have
resumed operations there will be a
surplus of * copper and the price
will immediately decline, but tbey
are very much in error. Insufficient copper is being produced to
supply what the trade would con
sume on a 14 or 15 cent market,
and this will continue to be the
condition for many years to come,
unless there should be a severe business reaction either in this countiy
orii» Europe."
Messrs. Robert Larson, Eugene
Herrick and B. Jewel shipped their
fifth car of fruit to the prairie provinces today.
The second car of ore from the
Union mine, iu Gloucester camp,
will be shipped from Lynch creek
to the Granby smelter about the
middle of next week.
Qrand Forks Citizens Contribute Generously to
the Fair
A Grand Forks man wbo recently
visited Carmi says that work on tbe
Kettle Valley line is proceeding
very slowly. The contractors believe tbat it will be some time in
December before tbe steel will be
laid to the summit, and a year from
tbat date hefore tbe trains will be
running to Penticton.
A Victoria company will put- a
forco of men to work at tbe Sally
mine at Beaverdell next month.
The thirteenth ordinary general
meeting of the Granby Consolidated
Mipitig, Smelting & Power eompany will be held at the branch
office of tbe company in New York
on Tuesday, Oetober 7.
matic Coupler Prove
Where Is the Big Surplus?
It is very regrettable tbat the.
stopping of work on tbe transpro-
vincial trunk road was made necessary by tbe stringency of the times.
Nicely started and having hope of
transportation to the languishing
mining camps along the route, there
could be but one feeling of profound
regret for cessation of a work which
is the most important, yet undertaken by tbe department of public
works. * Tbe setback to development
in a general way will be felt throughout tbe length and breadth of tbe
province as a result of the delay in
construction. As a matter of policy
and economy the government is
justified in tbe steps taken. It is
all to be attributed to that one obnoxious word "stringency," which
necessarily must have a string on
money or its equivalent.—Princeton
Copper Situation
Commenting on the cupper situa
tion in the recent issue of the Boston Commercial, G. W. Walker
says that "after advancing to 16}
cents for electrolytic and 17 cents
for lake early this week, at wbioh
prices considerable sales were msde,
the copper market has become dull
again and at the moment very little
business is being done. Prices,
however, have held the advance, ex
cept that tbere bas been a slight
decline in tbe speculative metal
market in London. Consumers as
a rule have covered tbeir current requirements, but a few of them sre
still short. The producing interests
are endeavoring to prevent a runaway market, fearing the possibility
Ibat it might be .succeeded early
next year by sues a slowing up of
business as would cause a sharp reaction if the price of the metal were
too- higb at the time of its occurrence. Copper is high enough Jnow
to suit tbe most exacting producers;
but unfortunately it will be impossible to turn out as mucb metal as
tbe trade will require if consumption continues to increase during the
coming year as rapidly as it has in
tbe recent past.

men that the car of ore shipped

Mix Shovel With Finance
Concentrated sarcasm for some of
tbe young financiers, so-called, of
tbe country, was offered by W. San-
ford Evans, of Winnipeg, in an address to the Association of Canadian
Clubs in conference at Hamilton.
-'The building of tbe Canadian Pa
cific railway with shovel and pick
was the best university this country
ever bad," he said. "It made for
iturdy men. Do you know wbat
Canadians would say to tbat kind of
work now? They would say tbat it
is nnt white man's work.
"It would nevertheless be a good
thing for tbe country if some of tbe
young men who sre now playing
with tbe country's finances were
now and for the next ten years busy
on railroad construction work. The
present financial stringency is the
hest thing that could have happened
to Canada. It is a question whether
it will laBt long enough, however.
"It has demonstrated as nothing
else could the inherent soundness of
our financial institutions, and it has
put a temporary check on things
which are not sound. The present
stringency is caused hy conditions
in Europe, wbich check the flow of
outside money into Canada. Wben
this condition occurs it means a little squeezing for all of us to get into
our cramped quarters, but that is
about all.
"The class will rule Ibis country
wbicb first has the right attitude to
ward work, and wbich secondly
practices sound finance. There is
no honest work wbich is not white
man's work and good for native
A   large  number of citizens inspected the Robinson automatic air
and steam coupling  device   at tbe
Great  Northern   yards iu this city
last Sunday.   All trainmen are enthusiastic in tbeir praise of tbe new
invention, and say tbat it is a complete success.   One  engineer  said
be came down tbe bill from Pboenix
on Saturday nigbt with  twenty five
loaded ore cars equipped witb tbese
couplers, and tbey worked so nicely
tbat be was not aware tbat he   bad
any load at all  behind-* bim.   Two
styles- of  couplers, one for  freight
and tbe otber for passenger  trains,
are manufactured.  Tne couplers for
freight cars have a single air  tube,
while  tbose  for passenger coaches
are  provided   with  air, steam and
signal tubes.  Tbe couplers are beld
firmly together by means of powerful springs, tested at 600   pounds.
True alignment is obtained by means
of projecting guides.    As tbe coupling is made automatically, there is
no need of brakemen exposing themselves by entering between the cars,
and tbe invention will be the means
of saving a great number of   limbs
and lives annually.   A great deal of
time will also be saved.   It requires
from   balf  au   hour to an hour to
make the air brake couplings oo   a
freight traiu now, and as this time
is saved by tbe new   invention,   its
advantages  are   readily   apparent.
J.   V.   Robinson,   a   mechanical
engineer of Washington, D. C, has
been working on his invention since
1908.    A number of severe tests of
tbe  invention   have already been
made in   tbe east.   Tbe interstate
commerce commission, tbrough its
block signal and train control board,
made a report upon   it,   commending its features and suggesting tbat
a  conclusive   test of  its merits be
made.   Tbe   Phoenix   branch was
selected for this test, and every oue
wbo has witnessed i- say thai it has
been a complete success.

The Australian Market
Advices have been received by
the Dominion minister of trade and
commerce showing thut large trial
shipments of Australian oranges
and lemons, whicb arrived at Victoria some time sgo, are reported by
tbe inspector of fruit as excellent in
color, quality and general condition,
snd were sold Inr cash as soon as
Australia, it is believed, ought (o
be a source of supply, and especially
for western consumers of citrous
fruits, which have heretofore been
iargely impjrted from the United
Several large shipments of British
Columbia potatoes and onions have
gone out on the new steamer Mamma to Fiji and New South Wales,
and the inspector's report with reference to the potatoes is very encouraging. One firm in British Columbia expects to ship forty tons of
onions to Australia by ihe next
steamer, to be accompanied and followed hy apples in large lots.
As apples and some other early
fruits have exactly different seasons
in British Columbia and Australia.
there is no reason why a very large
trade should not he developed in
these between the two countries.

Flow of Merc th_.n Four Mlt'icr*.   Feet
U_.ily is Reported from Near
l-'or lt years 4,000,000 test oi con-
. .in:__ble gus a day has been escaping
Horn the jroat ga3 well at Pelican
Portage, ubout 170 miles In a direct
line nor.iisast from Edmonton.
The precent flow of gas ln the well
wa> struck In Octobor, 181)8. at ;. depth
of 675 fe?t. An attempt tj cap the
well waB made three years ago but
failed, the tremendous pressure blowing off the valve. Oil chillers use all
the gas they need, und the remainder
ncC-.-sarily goes to waste.
Glen C. Foster, one of a party of
newspaper men, who made a trip of
inspection to the gas well, has this
lo say concerning It:
Up there tliey to to bed by gaB,
sleep by gas, get up by gas, and work
by gas. Gas piped part way up lhe
hill where '.hey are drilling furnished
heat for a 40 horse power boiler. This
toiler in turn supplies steam power
that keeps the oil outfit going 24
hours a day and generates electricity
for all the buildings and tents in connection with the oil camps.
We lay down with the noisy gush of
the escaping gas close to us and with
our beds In a semi-circle to the flame
that shcots right into the air, we read
hooks', and though it was a bitterly
cold night the air about was balmy
as a tropical night.
In all thesjg. years the.e has been
no diminution of the flow fr6m the
natural gas gusher at Pelican. Three
years ago a government test with a
pilot tube got a pressure of 600 pounds
per inch. On Septembe,- 27 a hydraulic gauge was put on and showed
a pressure of 225 pounds to the inch.
According to experts, who viewed
the Medicine Hat Held and the fields ln
California, the Pelican fields' flow will
continue to flow until such lime as
lhe body of pertoleum which generates
gas has been exhausted. Though the
cold in these regions Is sometimes intense, the temperaturo dropping as
low as 60 bplow zero—at whicli point
petroleum freezes—the gaB has never
been affected.

Sounds From a Rainbow
It win. incredible that a beam of
light could be made to produce sound,
but such a thing can be done. A ray
of sunlight is thrown through a lens
on a glass vessel containing lampblack colored silk or worsted, or any
like substance. A disk having silts
or openings eut In it Is made to revolve swiftly In this beam of light, so
as to but lt up, thus causing alternate
flushes of light and shadow. When
one places Ills ear to the glass vessel
he hears strange sounds so long as
Ihe flashing beam falls upon the ves-
A still more extraordinary effect Ib
produced when the beam of sunlight
Is made to pass through a prism, so as
to produce what ts called the solar
spectrum. This disk Is turned and
the colored light of the rainbow Is
made to break through It. Now. If
the ear be placed to the vessel containing the silk or other material, as
the colored lights uf the spectrum fall
upon lt, sounds will be given by the
different parts of the spectrum, and
there will be silence In other parts.
For example, if the vessel contains
red worsted and the green light flashes upon It, loud sounds will be, given
out. Only feeble sounds will be
heard when the red and the blue parts
of the rainbow fall upon the veBS«l.
Other colors produce no sounds at
'Green silk gives out sound best in
a red light. Every kind ot material
gives more or less sound ln different
colors and no sound at all In ot her?.
The Ear of the Owl
It Is held bv naturalists that, in order to capture Its prey tbe owl must
depend even more upon Its sense of
hearing than upon that of sight. The
tufts of feathers that distinguished the
short-eared and the long-eared owls
are, of course, no more ears than they
are horns.
The true ear of the owl Is a most
remarkable organ.
The facial disk of feathers that
gives the owl Its characteristic appearance serves as a kind of sounding
board or ear-trumpet to concentrate
the slightest sounds and to transmit
them to the orifice- of the true ear,
concealed In the small feathers behind the eye. Even In the barn owl
which possesses the least complicated
arrangement of this kind, tlie orifice
ot the ear is covered by a remarkable
flap of the skin, while in the other
bpccles there are striking differences
In the size and shape of this orifice
and Its covering flap on the two sides
of lhe head.
The exact way In which owls utilize
tbls elaborately specialized apparatus
has still to be discovered,
More Drinking In Italy
Till a few years ago the Italians
were amng the most temperate peoples in Europe; but with the growth
of industrialism and social luxury an
enormous development has been witnessed of the bar system.
The marked Increase in direct crime
and insanity due to the abuse of Intoxicating drink roused Ihe attention
cf the Government, and a Bill for
checking the evil was Introduced In
the Chamber of Deputies, prohibiting
Ihe sale of liquor to children and
drunkards, limiting bars to two for
every 600 Inhabitants In the smaller
towns, and one for every 600 citizens
In the larger centres. The latest figures show one sireet bar for every
15!) inhabitants.
He Smiled and Got the Limit
A young man from Pittsburgb.
charged with driving hts motor about
London while intoxicated, and exceeding the speed limit, smiled when he
was arraigned before the Judge. Presumably he expected a $10 fine. That
magistrate had to break the news to
him that the charge was no laughing
matter, and that conviction meant imprisonment. Odd, isn't lt, that
thosu Britishers should take It so seriously when a man gets a little jingle
and n.perils the lives of a lot of people ln a city? Don't they know ihat
boys will be boys?

Heligoland Cement Island
Heligoland, the tiny island ln the
North Sea which Germany proposes
to turn Into a great Btatlon for its
airships, Is one of the mit.. curious
Islands ln the world.
Ms towering cliffs, for Instance, are
j largely artificial. Some years ago
there was grave fear that the Island,
which was steadily growing smaller
would soon be eaten away entirely
by the waves from the southwest.
But five million dollars bas been
spent on raising a massive cliff of
granite on this exposed ride.
On those parts of the coast where
the red, poms rock of the genuine
cliffs has been too badly honeycombed by the seas, hundreds of thousands
of tons of cement bave been used to
strengthen the face.
Heligoland has long been an Important naval centre, lt Is defended by
the most powerful guns, and la Bald to
be prepared for a selge lasting three
years. It ls, Indeed, the North Sea
storehouse of the German fleet,. Visitors are only allowed In the tiny port

of the Island being carefully guarded

Unwed at 101
Miss Mary Thearln Is apparently
the oldest unmarried woman ln all
the world. She lives ln. Denver,
Colo., and not long ago celebrated her
101st birthday.
Really she is a most wonderful woman, according to the reports of her
friends and relations: She claims
never to have been sick a day In her
life, and furthermore, havli.g lived in
single bliss all her life, .vigorously Insists that she never regretted it.
Evidently she Is of the opinion
that unmarried women are Just as happy as married ones—that, In fact the
i unattached women are likely to get
' a great deal more out of life, for they
are not aB apt to spend their days
bound down to domestic duties and
labors. *
Miss . Thearln Is still perfectly
healthy and expects to continue so to
enjoy a number of more years in the

A doctor said: •
"Before marriage my wife observed ln summer and country homes,
coming In touch wljh families of varied means, culture, tastes and discriminating tendencies, that the families
using Postum seemed to average better than those using tea or coffee.
'When we were married two years
ago, Postum was among our first order of groceries. We also put In
somo tea and coffee for guests, but
after both had stood around the pantry about a year untouched, they were
thrown away, and Postum used only.
"Up to the i ge of 28 I had been ac-
customed to drink coffee as u routine
habit and suffered constantly from Indigestion and all Its relative disorders."   •
Tea Is Just as harmful because lt
contains caffeine, tlit same drug
found In coffee.

complaints have completely left me

How to Save Your Tires
A tire manufacturing comt": ny gives
this advlct about the care of motor
car tires:
Tbe idea seems universal among motor car owners that the tire cost of
their equipment far exceeds all other
costs that they have to deal with. It
ls true that the tire cost must necessarily be greater than any other cost
of running connected with the machine
but is far from necessary that the
cost shall bear such a ratio to the
other expenses as Is generally the case
This Is especially true where pneumatic tires are used, if tires were
loaded only to the maximum loads
for which they were designed, If they
were kept Inflated always to the pressure called for by the tire manufacturer, If tbey were not run ln ruts, If
they were properly and quickly repaired when damaged, and if they were
run on wheels which did not wobble,
their cost of upkeep "Vould be cut It,

Th-* Journal of the American Medical Association reaches this conclusion in its current Issue, published r»

on the fact that married men, da

Undoubtedly the lower death rata
among married men Is partly due ta
the fact that married men live mucb.

avoid many of the dangers of irregular living, says the Journal. This
view would seem to be corroborate!
by statistics .as to the mortality among

Of King Nicholas ot Montenegro
somebody writes that he stops people
to examine their guns and pistols,
and rates anybody who carries them
unloaded—which recalls an anecdote
related ot himself by Count Moltke,
when, ln 1856, he accompanied the
crown, prince of Prussia to Moscow to
attend the coronation ot Alexander II.
At a ball ln the kremlln Moltke was
Introduced to a group ot picturesque
potentates from central Asia, wltb
their girdles stuck full of daggers
and pistols, ln tbe present day Albanian manner and he begged to know
whether these firearms ot theirs were
loaded. Why Bhould I carry them it
they were not loaded, replied the
spokesman ot the party; and ln a
letter to his English wife Moltke confessed that he had never experienced
such a set back all his life. Here
at last, he said, I have found 'un horn-
me serieux,' a man who is what he
looks and means what he says,

years of age at the time and he killed
three British scidters with his own
hand. Tbe stone records that for
this he received punishment ot three
kinds. He was shot, he waB bayoneted and he waB beaten. He was then
reasonably, enough left for dead. The
old fellow must have had a magnificent constitution and a spirit which
the most devoted optimist must envy.

Ones the Nerve Is Gone a Man Should
Fly no More
He wbo flies constantly must look
to one personal risk, which may vary
according to the characteristics of the
Individual. This Is the danger a man
may incur by becoming a little care-
less while ln the air. There is the
possibility, ln fact, that familiarity
may breed—not actual contempt—but
a temporary relaxation ot vigilance,
and piloting an aeroplane needs such
watchfulness, such minute precision,
that any stateness on the part of the
man at tho wheel, or lever, represents
a peril that-la very real.
The pilot who flies a great deal
should remind himself constantly that
there ts no room for error in the handling of aircraft.
A loss ot confidence not difficult to
understand ls suffered by an. airman,
sometimes, after he has been the vie-
tlm ot a serious fall, and In similar
circumstances a Jockey, or say a racing motorist, may be robbed ot nerve
and when a pilot does lose Judgment,
a* the outcome of a bad mishap, his
wisest course Is to cease to fly. With
a broken nerve, he Is a menace to
himself and to others as well.--

Western Recognition of   the    Gre.t
Work the C.P.R. Is Doing for
The confirmation by Sir Tlionuis
Shaughuessy of the Intention of the
C.P.R. to expend $100,000,000 in the
extension of Its lines and perfection ol
Its system In the west, comes at the
present time as a piece of very welcome news indeed and furnishes
moreover , ample opportunity for the
people of Canada to rjvicw the situation and examine Into the relations
which subsist between the Dominion
of Canada and this great corporation.
When the evidences of a world wide
trade depression which Is now coming
on are to be seen on all sides and
the mouey situation ls becoming all
the while tighter, the announcement
of a gigantic expenditure of this kind,
and at this particular tlm- appears
like a veritable rift ln the clouds before the storm has had tlmo to break.
We have all heard the C.P.R. damned tor one thing and another and
many ot us may have done a blt'ot it
ourselves at times when we didn't
happen to think that things were coming sufficiently our way; but nevertheless where is there another corporation that has so thoroughly identified
Itself with the Interests of a country
as this mammoth railway and steamboat company has done? Neither ls
this tbe first Instance when British
Columbians in various districts and at
various times have seen infant Industries nursed along by the company ln
a way that waB truly pat-.-na], and It
does not detract from the situation ln the slightest where It may be
seen that ln doing so they were mere-
building up profitable business for
themselves ln the years to follow. It
ls now twenty years since they placed
a steamer on Okanagan Lake that was
far beyond the capacity reiulred at
that vime, and many a lean trip was
made before there was business
enough to Justify the expenditure.
Any settler on the shore of Okanagan
Lake had only to moor a log or two
at the shore to serve as a wharf and
display a white flag when he wanted
the boat to call, and he and his little
bit ot produce or belonging:, was taken aboard. The mining Industry ln
the Boundary was fostered along the
same way, :.nd when it was a matter
of lite or death to ml-e owners to
determine whether the low grade ores
of the Boundary could be made to
yield a profit, the C.P.R. did their
part to help out tbe situation by giving
a rate ot 35 cents per ton for the
transportation of ore to the smelters
at Greenwood, Grand Forks and
Boundary Falls long before there was
any other road to'share this business
with them.
In fact, Sir John A. Macdonald, far-
seeing statesman as he was, bullded
even, better than he knew when he
tied up with the men who risked their
fortunes ln the gigantic scheme ot giv
Ing Canada a railway from ocean to
ocean; and any aid which he and his
parliament were able to give at critical periods to help lt through, waa
bread sowtt on the waters, which ls
since coming back ln countless ways
and this latest manifestation in the
expenditure of (100,000 In the exten.
sion and Improvement of their system in the west at this particular
tlm? ,t but another mag-'lficent Instance of to tollcy they have seen
fit lo pursue and the national sentiment which has Inspired It. To do
the right thing at the right time ls
a happy faculty that ls unfortunately
not possessed by all, and neither are
all ln a position to do It, but lt ls
fortunate for all tbat those wbo are
ln a position to do so, havo the will
to do so.—Hedley, B.C. Gazette.

Caring for Caged Birds
Vegetable food of some kind Is a
necessity for the caged bird. A lettuce leaf, water cress, a small piece
of apple, a grape or a small thin piece
of raw potato If there ls nothing else
should be gi-vten every day. The staple food should be canary seed mixed
with a small percentage of rape and
golden millet, but occasionally, ln cold
weather add a little hem seed.
Should the bird's nails grow too
long, take him ln your hand, loosely,
but firmly, hold his feet tn a cup ot
warm, soapy water for several minutes to soften the nail, then cut tha
extreme end with a pair of sharp nail
scissors. ;
A bird should be accustomed to hav-'
ing ix bath every morning. The best
best plan to encourage'this is to remove tbe bottom ot the cage, put a
small dish of water on a sheet of paper, and set the top of the cage over
lt. Many birds have to be coaxed
Into taking a bath, and It your bird
has not been accustomed to lt, It will
help matters to remove the seed and
water dishes. After he has bathed
hang the cage ln a warm pleace so
that there may be no fear ot the bird
becoming chilled.

flrst thought Is of neuralgia in the
head or splitting headache, but neuralgia may affect any part of thc body
ln which there are sensitive nerves.
The teeth are often blamed and
extracted In error, when the cause of
the troublo Is ln the Impoverlshfd
condition of thc blood and the starved
nervous system.
While neuralgic pains arc usually
sharp and shooting, and consequently
difficult to locate, the seat of trouble
Is usually sore and tender under
Neuralgia Is pain and as such ts
the symptom of a disease—nervous
exhaustion. The nerves must be restored before cure can possibly be
In many cases neuralgia Is easily
curable by tho use ot Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food. The patient Is thin and
bloodless and needs tonic treatment
to form new, rich blood.
The application of cloths rung from
hot water will afford relief from tha
suffering, and thc regular use of Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food for a few weeks
will completely overcome the neuralgic condition.
Powerful drugs are to be avoided,
because of their Injurious effect In
further weakening the nervous system. The Nervo Food cures hy building up the feeble, wasted nerve cells,
and for this reason ls ot lasting benefit.

Tbe belief that tbere is tn be a provincial election in Britisb Columbia
this fall is gaining ground. It also
appears to be 'the impression that
the government machine will be defeated. Thousands of good Con
Bervatives throughout the province
are wavering in their allegiance to
the party, and will cast their hai
lots for an honeat governmenl. Only
tbe otlice holders and those who
have been bribed (vith patronage
now remain loyal to the machine.
The London Daily News and
Leader vigorously criticises Mr.
Borden's naval policy. "We have
again and again pointel out," says
the|.a,er, "that the result of Premier Borden's policy was to increase
tbe burden of armaments of the
British taxpayers and thrust upon
the people of these islands the heavy
task of manning and maintaininj
three unnecessary dreadnou; '
wbile threatening to launch us on
more on a career of unlimited rival
ry. The whole spirit of this kind ol
thing appears vicious, even when
the assumptions on which it isfaased
are less frail. We welcome any belp
the Dominion chooses to offer us of
its own free will, hut we are not going tn beg for it nor have our alleged
necessities advertised and haggled
over on colonial hustings."
Does that statute of Charles II regarding Sunday observance, whioh is
eaid to be still effective on this island,
provide for punishment in the stocks
and pillory for those who do not go to
church? If it does, things will look up

Booklet for Grand Forks
Fifty page booklets showing views
of Grand Forks and district were re
ceived in town this week. There
are 3,000 of them. The many business blocks, mercantile establishments, hotels and residences appiar
in it, and there is a splendid bird's
eye view of the city. Tbe- different
churches, the court house, public
school, the new postoffice, city ball
and tbe tbree railwry depots are
shown, as well as the principal
streets and driveways. Several of
the largest orchards in the sur
rounding district show up prominently. Views of the Granby smelter, the sawmill of the Western Pine
Lumber company, and of Christina
lake also appear. A series of ab
breviated facts relative to tbe city
and district appear on the tbree
flrst pages. The booklet has the
sanction of the Grand Forks board
of trade. Tbe photos were taken
by F. J. Lake, and the compiling of
the work was in charge of Mr, Lake
of tbe Art Studio, and Walter E.
Hadden, a local real estate man.

Science Wakoa up to a Fact That th*
Public Hava Long Realized
Non scientific persona have long
realized tho remarkable similarity la
handwriting of members ot the earn*
family, sometimes lasting for half *
dozen generations, and now, lt seems,
science Ib at last waking up to thia
suggestive fact ln heredity. Sir Rick-
man Ooodlee, president of the Royal
College of Surgeons, said recently:
I have lately been reading old letters dating back to the early part ot
the eighteen century, and I have been
struck with the way ln which mere
handwriting ls handed down from
father to son, and mother to daughter.
It ls Impossible to trace quite cleat*
ly my great-grandfather's writing In
that of my cousin's and father's and
my own. Ir mere handwriting ls thut
transmitted, together with the tone ot
the voice and the shape of the nose,
the question arises whether any on*
need be ashamed of his defects, sorry
for his misdeeds, proud of his success,
or satisfied with the onsciousness ot
virtue. We may feel the long arm*
of our ape-llho ancestors stretching
out of the past and molding our char*
acters. We may read all that has
ever been written about freo will from
the time of Aristotle, and we may
hug the notion that our actions have
been predestined from the nebulous
state of our planet.
But It makes no difference to us
We are still doggedly convinced that
by taking thought we can add one
cubit to our stature, or at any rate
prevent lt being one cubit less.
Miller's Worm Powders prove
their value. They do not cause any

One of the large London insurance

insurance policy against bad weather.
It la primarily for tho beneflt of travelers who make trips ln the spring

who complain It their trips are spoiled
by variations of weather.
These policies are called, naturally
enough, rain policies. The more you

Woolen Clothe
The first woolen cloths manufactured In'England were produced by a
colony ot seventy families of Dutch
cloth-workers, who llnded ln England
July 26, In the year 1331, having been
Induced to settle in England by a liberal grant from Edward III. Worsted manufacture was commenced tn
Norfolk a few years later, and the Industry bo launched soon reached large
proportions. Every effort was made
to protect the infant Industry, and ln
1463 lt was enacted that no cloth
but of Wales or Ireland should be Imported Into England. In the seventeenth century, during the reign of
Charles II, a law was passed tbat all
persons ahouto be burled ln woolen
cloths. In 1700 an act was passed
by parliament, prohibiting the Importation Into England ot Indian muslins,
chintzes, and cottons, which were
threatening to supplant woolen cloths

As early as the year 1871 he contributed to The Westminster Review,!
then a quarterly, an elaborate article,
oil the great French critio St. Beuve,
who died not long before. Ills interest
in French literature has always been
keen; and his own literary style bss
probably been influenced in some degree by his admiration for the con-'
ciseness, perspicuity, and the delicate
allusiveness of the best French prose.!
In 1906 he contributed "A Life of;
Count Frontenac" to The Makers of|
Canada series. He also acted as editor of three or four books of the series. Having been asked to write another volume for the same series,
namely, "A Lite of William Lyon
Mackenzie," the rebel leader ot 1837,
he did so, completing the work in the
spring ol 1908, but tbe book has never,
been published and has been the subject ol litigation up to the "resent
