Important   Case  Affecting
- Land Sales Whicb Are
Not Completed
Kilmer case are* open to such an 'interpretation, then , all the conveyances in Canada in tbe last sixty
yean bave been based on bad law,"
bev iraid.
An important matter, bearing on
agreements of sale, is now before the
court ot appeal at Victoria. Tb*
case in wbicb tbe issues are raised
it one in which tbe recent privy
council decision of Kilmei vs. B.C.
Orchards ie being invoked in an effort to make the decision apply to
land purchase agreements in the
province wbicb have a thirty-day
cancellation clause. The effect will
be far-reaching, because nearly all
of tbe land purchase agreements in
the province contain clauses to tbe
effect tbst time iB the esseuce of the
agreement and that in default of the
payments being promptly met tbe
vendor can regain possession of the
property, after giving thirty days'
notice of cancellation.
Tbe opinion of some ie that if the
court of appeal "hold the Kilmer
judgment to apply te all land purohase agreements, then it will result in an avalanche of litigation affecting tbe security of land titles. If
cancellation under a tbirty-day notice ia not legal, it will be in order
for litigants to bring- snit to regain
possession of properties taken from
them in years past under tbe thirty
daya' cancellation clause. Time will
be no longer tbe essence of a con
tract to purchase land, no matter
wbat the agreement may say.
Tbe present appeal ia brought
against a decision by Judge Grant,
- ordering that a lot in North Vancouver be forfeited to tbe vendor, a
laborer, who had agreed to aell to
T. J. Donahue, in Mareb, 1912, for
1750. Tbe second payment, due on
September 4, 1912, waa not raet.and
tbe tbirty-day notice wae gent on
October 16, 1912. Aa this was oot
met, cancellation waa completed on
November 19, 1912
An action for tbe recovery of tbe
land was begun before tbe Kilmer
va. B. C. Oruharda decision waa
bainded down by tbe privy council,
and big honor reserved hearing arguj
ment until tbe decision was received
In giving judgment be intimated
that in bis opinion the Kilmer case
was very different as to the . facta,
and, therefore, ruled tbat tbe cancellation wag good.
Tbe judges of the supreme court
bave since adopted tbe Kilmer judgment as a guide in refusing cancellation on short notice,
on behalf of hia clients, entered an
appeal againat Judge Grant's decision.
In commenting on the features of
tbe appeal cage their lordships of the
court of appeal expressed the opinion tbat tbe decision of the law
lorda was extreme law. Mr. Justice
Martin, who waa no* on the , bench
wilh hig brother judges whtn the B.
C. Orchards against Kilmer caae
came up en the first appeal, aaid
tbat the decision of the privy council wae embarrassing to the courts of
the province.
In reserving tht decision of tbe
court, Chief Justice Macdonald intimated (bat the situation was a very
crucial one. "If tbe words used by
tbe privy counoil  io  deciding  tbe
New Use for Copper
Tests oMhe service rendered by
sleel railway rails containing one-
fiBf of one par sent of copper have
been made hy the Obicago, Milwaukee & 8t. Paui railroad, and following results shown by a year's service
of 6060 ton* of rails, double thnt
quantity has recently been ordered,
says tbe Mining and Scientic Press.
It is understood lhat if further testa
prove equally favorable the company will adopt Ihis alloy- as a
standard in ita rail specifications.
Since over 3,000.000 tons of rails are
made annually in the United States,
an important avenue of consumption of copper might result from the
adption of ibis type of rail alloy by
even a few of tbe larger railroads.

Uniformity in Judging
A frequent cause of complaint on
the part of exhibitors at fall fairs
arises from tbe lack of uniformity in
the placing of awards. Ons year a
judge will set a standard of excellence that differs radically from the
ideal looked for by the judge wbo
appears oo the same grdunds the
next year. Tbis is unsatisfactory,
BiuBing cancel- j not 0„,y t0 the exhibitors immedi-
sandMr. Bray,'ttUsly ooncerMdi but also to producers in the neighborhood of the
fair, for they are given nb uniform
type to follow in their live stock or
crop operations.
•To overcome tbis lack of uniformity in judging .in Ontario, J. Lockie
Wilson, superintendent of agricultural societies, bas arranged io have
his departmental judges of live stock
and field crops attend a short coursi
early in July, wbere tbey will receive special instructions from experts, compare ideas and arrive at a
uniform atandard for tbe varions
classes 'hat will appear before tbem
io the show rings and on tbe show;
benches of the province.

of water per minute through an
eight-inch pipe line up the hill fifty
feet under great pressure, and running sprinklers tbat are throwing

similar plant was installed on
Father Ferroux.'e ranch a year ago.
Mr. Ferroux is highly pleased with
these motors, and strongly recommend them to anyone who may want
cheap power for irrigation or other
pueposes. the motor was invented
by Mr. Brewer about two years ago.

motors are manufactured in all
sizes from one to a hundred horsepower.

A dispatch from Montreal says
that J. G. Sullivan, chief engineer
of western lines of the Canadian Pacific railway, announces tbat tbe
contract for double tracking the tunnel through tbe Selkirk mountains,
wbich will bt five miles in length,
has been let to Foley Bros., Welch

the loweat tenderers.
When tbit tunnel is built and tbe
cbange el line is made on each side
of it, tber* will be but one stretch
of 2.2 grade against tbe westbound
trains. Tbis tunnel will sharten
tbe line by four and a balf miles
and will reduce -tbe elevation tbat
trains are required to be lifted now
by 540 feet, and it will save 24U0
degrees of curvature, wbich is equivalent to nearly seven complete circles. This tunnel will enter the Selkirk mountains on the east end in
tbe valley below Bear creek station,
on tbe present line, and will come
out at tbe loop.
Mr. Sullivan also announces that
it haa been decided to electrify, the

It was a cruel thing to eay about
a nice railroad whose chief aim was
the speedy transportation of Its passengers, but the conversation had
turned to tbe Lightning Expresses
and Wallace Irwin, the author, simply couldn't help it.
On the road In question, as Mr.
Irwin related the story, a train stopped one day and the passengers were
told tbat a cow had got on the track
and had to be driven off.
Up the road a few miles farther the
train stopped again and once more the
explanation was given that a cow
was on the track. Two miles, perhaps, of continuous going, and then
came another stop. This time a
passenger glanced wearily towards
Ihe end of the car.
Mr. Conduotor, hi called out ln
yiiwnful accents, could I speak to you
a moment?.
Certainly, answered the conductor,
niuvlng down the aisle, what la it?
Do you really mea.i to say, returned the passenger, ln a voice that was
almost a sigh, that we have caught up
Jo tbat cow again?

-A doctor ascribes to the tomato
the following Important medicinal
First, that the tomato ls one of
the most powerful cleansers of the
liver and other organs; where calomel was generally used as an aperient, tomatoes may be substituted.
The tomato is probably one of the
most effective and least harmful remedial agents known.
Second, thst a chemical extract may
be obtained from lt that will supersede the use of calomel in the cure
of disease.
Third, that It has been successfully
used ln cases of diarrhoea.
Fourth, that when used as an article of diet, lt ls almost a sovereign
remedy for dyspepsia and Indigestion.
Fifth, that lt should be constantly
used, either cooked, raw or In the

a few questions he handed the lady a

weighed twenty pounds more. He
was puzzled. His list contained no

Yes, doctor, was the Arm answer.
What else did you eat? as a sudden inspiration seized him.
Why, nothing but my regular- pieals

Cored By Toning the Blood and
Strengthening the Nerves
It is the opinion of the best medical authorities, after long observation, that nervous diseases are more
common and more serious In the
spring than at any other time ot the
year. Vital changes ln the system,
after long winter months, may cause
much more trouble than the familiar
spring weakness and weariness from
which most people suffer as the result
of indoor life, ln poorly ventilated and
often overheated buildings. Official
records prove that In April and May
neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, epilepsy
and other forms ot nerve troubles are
at their worst, and tbat men, more
than any ether time, a blood-making
nerve-restoring tonic 1; needed.
The antiquated custom of taklitg
purgatives ln the spring ls useless,
lor the system really needs strengthening, while purgatives only gallop
through the ' bowels,- leaving you
weaker. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
are the beet medicine, for they actually make the new, rich, red blood
that feeds the starved nerves, and
thus cure the many forms of nervous
disorders. They cure also such
other forms ot spring troubles as
Headaches, poor appetite, weakness
In the limbs, as well as remove unsightly pimples and eruptions. In fact
they unfailingly bring new health and
strength .to weak, tired and depressed men, women and children.

Increastd Capacity for Mental Labor
Many former tea and coffee drinkers who have mental work to perform
day after day, have found a better capacity and greater endurance by using Postum Instead of tea and coffee.
A Western woman writes:
"I had drank coffee for about twenty
years, and finally had what the doctor called "coffee heart." I wss nervous and extremely despondent; had
little mental or physical strength left,
had kidney trouble snd constipation."
(Tea ls Just as harmful becaus'e lt
contains caffeine, tht same drug
found ln coffee).
'The first noticeable beneflt derived
from the change from coffee to Postum
was the natural action ot the kidneys and bowels. It two weeks my
heart action was greatly improved
and my nerves steady.
"Then I became less despondent,
and the desire tj bs active again
showed proof of renewed physical
and mental strengt't.
"I am steadily gaining ln physical
strength and brain power, 1 formerly did mental work and had to give
It up on account of coffee,-but since
using Postum 1 am doing hard mental
labor with less fatigue tban ever before."

Good growth of poultry and heavy

stock. A bulletin issued by tbe Iowa

The first consideration In building a
poultry bouse is Its location.- It ls of
greatest importance to select s site
having well drained soil. It ts next Important to bave a convenient location.

self a ruined man. . !
Sir John, titer living for a number
of years in Turkey, amassed a con-;
siderable fortune, and, deciding to re-'
turn to London, placed the whole of
his merchandise on three ships;
but, like the missing vessels ol Antonio in "The Merchant .ol Venice,"]|
they did not turn up, and alter a;
time were given up lor lost. The consequence was that the once wealthy;
merchant was reduced to great pov-:
erty, and it was only by acting as
agent for certain tradesmen that ht
was able to earn a livelihood. I "
For ten years Sir John'thus straggled, on, and then, to his great amazement, one day came the news that
his long-lost ships had arrived in port
Jn the joy ol the moment he vowed
to build an asylum for decayed merchants.
He purchased from tbe crown tbe
manor of Old Court, Greenwich, and
on what was known as the Great
Stone Field he erected a college from
designs by Sir Christopher WrenJ
The original college consisted ot a
chapel in the centre and apartments
for twelve residents, who dined together in a common room. Sines
those days, however, it has been con-
sidersbly altered, and. as already men*
tioned, there is now accommodation
tor forty-one inmates, who not only
are provided with separate sets of
apartments, with furniture, ii required, to the'value of 1125, together with'
attendance, coals, wood, and light.'

Lurtd  Te   Death.
A Scotch naturalist in Edinburgh'
hu recently given'to the world soms
interesting .sets which go to show how
animals as well ss human beings respond to the lure of the ses, snd how.
they will travel-* sometimes tor hundreds ot miles to answer its call and
then push on into its waters to their
own destruction.
The most curious example ot tbls
tendency is found in, the seaward
migrations of the small brown volelike
lemmings. These animals will at certain times leave the highlands ol
Scandinavia and march in vast hordes
toward the lowlands, moving only by
night and following the general trend
of the valleys. They hold tenaciously
to the general direction in which they
set out and are diverted neither by
streams nor by moderately sized lakes.
Eventually, after a march lasting
from one to three years, the army, devastated, of oourse, by many foes,
reaches the tea, but not for itt own
good, for, queerly enougb, the end ol
the journey Is not attained, and many
ot the little animals push on into ths
waters, fulfilling to their own destruction the unaccountable impulse to
push forward. I
Other creatures likewise are known
to fall under tbe spell of the set. It
is rather commonly known bow tht
European reindeer will spend the hard
weather ol winter on the highlands ol
Scandinavia snd Russia and feed
snsringly on snow-covered moas snd
lichen snd then in summer, in spits
of the fact that food has become mors
plentiful inland, will forsake tbese
taunts lor the seacoast.
