Minister of Agriculture Tells
the People What His Department Is Doing
A very pleasant "smoker," or,
more properly speaking, reception,
wan held in tbe Davis hall on Wednesday evening under the auspices
of lhe hoard of trade, for the pur-
p me of giving tbe citizens an oppoi-
tunity to meet Hon. Martin Buire.il,
minister of agriculture, before hia
departure forO.ttwu. The attendance was very large, nearly all the
townspeople being present, besides
a good represntalion uf the ranchers
of tbe valley. The ball was decorated with tings, and tbe evening was
devoted to speech-making and the
renditiou uf a meritorious musical
program.
Fred Clark, president of tbe board
of trade, presided over the meeting.
After calling the gathering to order,
he took occasion to tu say tbat the
province, aud this district in particular, bud been highly bunured
by the selection of Mr. Burrell as
minister of agriculture. He tben
drew Mr. Burrell's attention to a
number of public works that the
citizens would like lbe government
to carry carry out. Among these be
mentioned, the construction of a
drill ball; a clock tower for the new
postoffice, the erection uf a fence
around the building, and tbe beautifying of tbe grounds, and tbe construction of a dam at Cascade. He
tben called on Judge Brown for a
speech.
Mr. Brown, after expressing
pleasure at having an opportunity to
be present, and after paying a higb
complineiit to Mr. Burrell's abilities, said that it-was doubtful if the
people of tbe province fully appreciated tbe honor conferred upon
them by Mr. Burrell's appointment
This was the first time that a minister of agriculture had been selected
from outside of Quebec or Ontario,
a id it was a just recognition of British Columbia's growing importance
as an agricultural province. He
then spoke at length on the benefits
tbat accrue to tbe farmers from tbe
establishment uf an experimental
farm, and he hoped Mr, Burrell
would use bis influence to secure
one for the district. If it could be
located somewhere near Grand
Forks, so much tbe better; but if
not here, at suine other point in tbe
district would do,
T. A. Mclntyre, who followed
Judge Blown, spoke more briefly.
He thought that il a spiiit of lival y
could be aroused between Mi. I.in-
re|l and our member in lbe local
bouse as to who could get lbe most
government aid for the dial-ict, all
improvements asked for would soon
be forthcoming. He also paid a
tribute lo Mr. BuueU as a citizen
and as minister of agriculiU<e.
James Rooke said be was not in
favor of reciprocity. Still, lhe fiuit
growers had certain evils to contend
with at present, Most of theBe evils,
he tbuught, could be remedied by a
strict' enforcement of the Fruit
Marks Act. At present it was
being violated by the American
growers who shipped their fruit to
the northwest.
VV. A, Cooper, who is an authority on dry-farming methods, spoke
on tbat phase of the agricultural
industry. He emphasized tbe importance of securing an experimental farm for the district, and felt
snre that Mr. Burrell would do
everything he could to get one for
his constituents. He closed his remarks by complimenting the minister on the work he had already for
tbe farming industry.
Mr. DeCuew, superintendent of
tbe Robinson & Lequime Lumber
company, spoke fur the lumbering
industry. The ytllow pine from
the Kettle.river, he said, was superior to any yellow pine found in
otber sections of the province, and
the product of the mills in this district was of a high quality. "Tbe
lumbermen were making a tight in
lbe supreme court for an interpretation of the tariff on lumber.
E. Miller, M.P.P., spoke of the
importance of the portfolio of agriculture, and agreed with Judge
Brown by expressing the opinion
that the people of tho province did
not fully realize the honor done
tbem by Mr, Burrell's appointment,
Couutry life was conducive to tbe development of the best type of manhood—physical, moral and intellectual. It was important ibat tbe
farming induslry sbould piosper,
because wheu it was depressed all
other industries became disni'i anged.
He thought the portfolio wes in able
hands while the present minister
presided over il.
Mr. Burrell was tbe last spe.ike
In his fifteen minutes' speech he
touched on a' number of subjects.
He said be would bring tbe requests
of the board of trade before tbe
ministers of the proper departments,
and would use hiB utmost endeavors
to secure favorable action on tbem,
at the same time be intimated tbat
''God helps those that help themselves," and that the people sbould
not depend altogether on the government for tbeir improvements.
He tben reviewed the work of his
department since his appointment.
One of the most important acts, he
said, bad been the distribution of
weedless seed grain to tbose farmers
of tbe northwest who lost their crops
last year. At present the most important woi'k was being carried on
by the veterinary branch of tbe department. Human tuberculosis, he
said, waa traceable to animal tuberculosis, and it was tbe intention of
the department to stamp out tbis
disease among the cattle by s thorough system of inspection by com-
I ett-nt veterinary surgeons, and in
tnis way check, if possible, tbe ter
rible ravages of tbe white plague
among the people. Mr. Burrell then
spoke at length un subjects outside
of bis own department. Most of the
lime wus taken up by emphasizing
tbe need of national defence, but no
intimation was given as to what
form the government's naval policy
might assume. Canada, he said,
was unique among the nations of
the world, inasmuch as lbe country
bad attained a population of nearly
8,000.000 people without spending
une cent fur its uwn defence.
Interspersed between the speeches were songs by Messrs. Bishop,
Harrison, Frake and Hay. These
were all well rendered, and were
honored by being heartily encored.
The music was furnished by Wer
ner's orchestra. Shortly before 12
o'clock the gathering dispersed, after
all had joined in singing "God Save
tbe King."
Midway Man   Has Novel
Way of Starting an
Automobile
A good story comes to The Sun
from Midway. A few months ago
J. R. Jackson, M.P.P., purchased
bis lirst auto-nohile. Shortly after
this event a neighbor made a visit
to Mr. Jackson's ranch, and waB
somewhat surprised to find the
member for Greenwood rfding dragging bis new machine through a
field with a pair of cayuses The
neighbor enquired the cause of these
strange maneuveis Mr Jackson
explained that he had taken this
method of starting the engine, instead of wasting physical energy in
"cranking" it up hy hand. As tbe
machine was in gear when Mr.
Jackson was performing this task,
what would bave happened to the
cayuses if the engine bad started
can easily be imagined.
The fact that a play was a big
Bueceps in the theatrical centres of
the land a few decades back, is not
always a guarantee that it will be
worth seeing when resurrected and
presented to the present generation
in country towns by incompetent
companies. "Rip Van Winkle" is
one of tbe American classics. The
greatest comedian this continent has
produced made his reputation in it.
Yet when it produced in this city
its rendition was of euch a putrid
nature that the young men who witnessed the show were so disgusted
with it that after it was over they
imbibed freely of the howl .that
cheers in order to counteract the bad
effects of the performance. The performers make a show worth seeing,
and tbe people should know something of them before they part with
tbeir money for tickets.

150 feet east of tbe present bridge on

COMMENT
Grand Forks.is sadly in need of a
modern opera house. The reason
why such a building is not erected
is, it is suimised, because the undertaking would pmbably be, for a
year or two at least, a losing proposition. Tbis appears to be the general opinion. But, wilh the present rejuvenation of tbe city, there
is no roason wby such an enterprise should not pay expenses from
the start, and in a year or two it
would undoubtedly pay a fair return
on tbe investment. As none of our
capitalist appear to be willing to risk
their money in such a building,
other means might he devised to accomplish the same purpose. A syndicate could be formed to erect tbe
house. Nearly every business man
could afford to take a few hundred
dollars' worlb of slock. In tbe end
he would gain by doing so. Still a
less expensive plan: We feel sure
Mr. Kerman would would be willing to turn his proposed block into
an opeia house if he were guaranteed a few years' lease of it. Why
not organize a company to lease it?
It weuld not cost eacb individual
member of the company much, and'
we feel sure that it could be operated
to pay expenses from tbe start- An
opera house in a growing town'is an
essential institution. II we want the
people to come here we have got to
amuse and instruct them. The
piesent bouse is worse than none at
all, because only tbe poorer class of
shows will appear in it.

SAXING IN STORrVW
Gust Struck Aeroplane of British Aviator AQThcn 2,000 Feet up—Ho
Landed on Back Unhurt
Mr. Barrlngton Kennett, lecturing
In London recently on aviation, stated
lhat the danger of air navigation was
very mui.li over-estimated. Going
through the list of fatal accidents that,
have occurred ln England, he pointed
out that the only one of the nine
which was absolute1,*' unavoidable
was that which entailed the death
ef Mr. Grahame Gilmour. Rolls fell
because lie had put an Improvement
of his own design on an American
machine. Grace simply lost his way
and was drowned. Benson, who fe'i
ln a Valkyrie machine at llendon
had a weak heart, and undoubtedly
fainted in tbe air; Cammel was too
daring with a machine of which he
had no experience; Oxley's machine
broke in the air, it ts true, but he was
doing trick-flying; Napier and Kidges
were both of them trying very risky
flights.
The sensations of an accident that
did not end fatally were described
Lieutenant Reynolds was flying near
Bedford last year. He was about two
thousand feet up when he got Into a
bad thunderstorm. A powerful gust
rtrick him under his planes, and he
turned two complete somersaults 1p
the air. When he was about 1000
teet up his seat and baggage fell off,
but meanwhile hts machine sidled
down in great curves till it landed on
Its back. The flrst thing he saw
on landing thus was a very old gentleman who had been bathing and
lightly clad had run to the spot. Immediately school-boy memories came
back, anl he concluded the old gentleman was Charon. He looked
about for the boat, but, after being
puzzled at Its absence, he grew conscious of his real and more happy wher-
abouts. 'His hands were cut from
holding on to tm wires, but apart
trom tha: he was unhurt. He saw
the same old gentleman a little later
Among the crowd, fully dressed; he
proved to be a high dignitary of the
Established Church.
Mr. Kennett said that he had recently talked to three Italian officers
itjio had done aviation work ln Tripoli. I was glad to And them con-
llrm the teport that from a reconnal-
tance point of view aviators had done
wonderful work. They obtained Information ln a few hours which could
not have been gained by cavalry under
weeks. ,

First Thlnge
The man to propose the establish-
ment'of ft penny (two-cent) post, a
postal nvnipy onler system and post
office savings hanks was Sir Rowland
Hill, who died in London thirty-three
years ago today. Tlie founder of
the mouVrn pos.*_-*.Re was hovn in
1795. His penny poKtfiei. plan was
suggested to the British ^arntunenl
In 18S7, and went into effect Iri ling-
land ln 1840. In the same yoar his
money order' scheme was put into
effect, replacing an antiquated system
that had been little used on account
of expense. Stamped postage covers
another innovation suggested by Hill
and which also came Into use that
year.
The flrst accent ever made In a balloon filled with hydrogen gas was

The Athletic Cop
Those persons who keep abreast of
the affairs of the day must find more
than pas.'liiB satisfaction ln the betterment the large cities continue to
inject ln their police departr«uts.
The public demands that the police
officer be removed as far as possible
from things political. In cities
where politics flourishes we find the.
most Inferior grade of police officers.
The moment a policeman becomes
merely a cog ln some political machine
his duties are woven around a control
of votes-to the exclusion of the performance of his natural functions.
The larger cities, such as New York
and Chicago, long since came to the
realization that the policeman is employed by the taxpayers to patrol the
r-trcets and 'o maintain peace and order.
The cop ls In reality, similar to the
battleship. If the United States
navy were composed- of this type of
vessels tie result would be almost a
standing Invitation for some more
powerful nation to engage tn combat
and sink the ships.
The more physically powerful a policeman is, the less trouble he en
counters In enforcing obedience.
There was never a better idea originated than the equipping and malnten-
ence of gymnasiums ln police stations. And there ls not a more
workable Idea than the forming of
baseball, football, and track teams
among officers of the law so as to
give them some purpose for always
bettering their physical condition. '
The patrolman Is an object lesson
not simply to the crook and yegg, but
to the rising generation. When Officer Casey rushes out into the street
and stops a runaway team at the risk
of life and limb, he has Bet a standard ot h_rols;m ln hla precinct at least,
and this standard ie bound to exert a
irood influence on both the boys and
the men In that neighborhood.
On the other hand, any display of
cowardice or physical weakness on
the part of a police officer, tends to
shatter the Idol ot the law, and suggests to citizens the weakness of the
law. Eut tha policeman, for his
own sake and because he Is ever exposed to hazards and dangers, should
.le.p l.iurelf in such condition that he
will be able to give a good account
o( himself when the time comes.
The most successful officers of the
law, i.nd the ones who command the
most respect, nro not those who are
always ready to use the club or gun,
those who are willing to mix, not
through their power of legal right,
but because they are the masters.
The police officer Ib the emblem of an
imperfect civilization. His position
has been made possible only because
physical force Is s]U necessary to
suppress certain wrongs. All of this
ls apart from his duties as an aid to
the sick and afflicted, and unless he
personally sets before himself an Ideal
ot physical fitness, he is going to be
less cap?ble as an officer.
There Is p. great deal of difference
between a police officer, who is in
good physical condition and one who
is a natural bully. Adherence for at
least an hour a day to the routine of
tbe gymnasium is one of the most
commendable practices a policeman
can Indulge In.—Frank Ootch.
Dramatic Snap
A number of players and playwrights at the Lambs' Club were discussing the question of what constitutes the snap so persistently demanded or the dramatist by thc i|an-
ager of today.
I have talked to so many managers
on this subject, said one writer, but
none has been able to gllve me any
very definite notion as lo Just what
snap Is.
I can help you out, said Eugene
Walter. I have an Idea for a one-
act play that Justs bursts with snap.
I'll give it to you.     Hero it ls:
Play opens with man nnd woman

them on, looks about him, and suddenly gives a start.
Merciful heavens! he exclaimed. I'm

Tommy returned sobbing from
school with a very bad black eye. But
I'll pay Billy Blobbs off for this ln

you a alee Jam tart, and you must
take it to BiUy Blobbs and say, I told
mother how you'd punished me, and
the says I must return good for evil
bo here's a nice tart for you."
The following morning with tart In
one hand and his books in the other,
poor Tommy hastened Joyfully to
school, only to return ln a sadder
plight than the day before, saying,
between his Bobs: Mother I gave your
message and tart to Billy Blobbs, and
he blacked the other eye, and says
he wants you to Bend him a pudding.

and catching the auctioneer's eye during a lull In the bidding, he shouted
loudly enough to be heard by all:
May I bid?
Certainly, said the man of the

Alt eyes being turned on the customer, he,  making for the door,  Bald:
Well, I bid you good-night, then.
The laughter which followed stopped business for some time.

on the stomach and Intestines and allay the irritation and pain. A trial
of it will convince anyone of these

BABY'S GREAT DANGER
DURING HOT WEATHER
More little ones die during the hot
weather than at any other time of the
year. Diarrhoea, dyaentry, cholera
Infantum anl stomach disorders come
without warning and when a medicine ls not at hand to give promptly
the short delay too frequently means
that the child haa passed beyond aid.
Baby'a Own Tablets should always be
kept in- the home where. - there- are
young children. An occasional dose
of the Tablets will prevent stomach
and bowel troubles, or if the trouble
come#suddcnly the prompt use of the

More About
The Loading Platform
The presant ge.ipri.tlon of Western farmers will never know the
difficulties ..rd v xatlcnB experienced hy their predecessors In the
earlier years when no one could get a carload of grain shipped ln
bulk except ty loullng It through an elevator. The system forced
the majority of farmers to sell their grain to the elevator owners
at arbitrary irlcis, and oft times to submit to heavy dockage and
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now however
the distribution o. -ars as fixed by the Grain Act, and the use of the
loading platform, provide facilities whieh enable the farmer to secure
satisfactory lreaU".int In the disposal of his grain, and the highest
market prices at time of sale. Every farmer therefore, should more
and more e'i'leavnr to use the loading plitform ln shipping his grain
to the terminal elevators. It Is the safeguard ot the farmers' freedom In disposing ot his grain to the best advantage for himself. It
farmers retrain Irom using the loading platform freely, It might re*
suit In Its being dme away with, became railway companies and
elevator owners ara strongly opposed to It. It ts easy to understand why elevator people desire the lea-ling platform abolished.
The railway eople on their part say it delays the loading of care
and helps to caure car shortage. This we know to be nonsense,
because frequently after cars are loaded whether with grain, coal
lumber or other merchandise, they are sldetracke.'. for days and even
weeks Instead of being promptly moved forward to destination. It
Is engine shortage aid shortage ot competent tralr. men that mostly
causes gram 1lockndes on railways and not lack of cars. Let every
farmer therefore, is all he can to use t.e loading platform and become an i!>da..pe_ident shipper. In subiequent advertisements Ve
will state In detail the savings and other advantages of direct loading Into cars compared with loading thi'ugh elevators.
We handle the farmers grain strictly on commission, make liberal
advances on car bills of lading, supervise the grading at time cars
are Inspected, se.uro the highest prlcei at time of sale and make
prompt returns when sold. Write us for shipping Instructions and

Extraordinary Strength of Hair
Frau Langer calls herself a hair
athlete, she claims to have the strong-
eat hair ln the world. At a variety
theatre ln Berlin she has been astonishing the spectators by the extraordinary feats she performs with her
hair. Among theBe Is one ln which
her husband, a man of medium atze
and weight, slings a hammock between
a tree and her hair, lies down In tt
and swings at his ease. Women
who know how it hurts to have their
hair pulled will understand what a
tough scalp. Bhe must have to be able
to bear such a strain upon lt. Another of her feats Is to place her
little girl In a swing, tie this to her
hair and let the child swing to and
fro. She has acquired this unusual
strength ln har hair by many yeara
of constant practice. There ls nothing astonishing about the strength
of Frau Laager's hair; what ls extraordinary ir the strength of her
scalp. For human hair Is, for its
thickness, ono ot the strongest materials known. This female Samson haa drilled her scalp to resist a
pull that would tear the ordinary woman's hair out by the roots.

Philosophy of Undertaking
Ours Is a solemn business, said an
undertaker, and yet there happens in
It something over which all concerned
can reasonably be cheerful.
We once had a customer who had
lost his wife and who came to us to
bury her, which we did. After the
funeral he came baek to us. He had
selected the casket ln which his wife
waa burled and now he bought one
Juat like lt for himself. He waa a
* man ln health, with no prospect of
ieath so far as that was concerned,
but'he waa greatly grieved and cast
down over the death ot his wife, and
when he should die he wanted to be
buried ln a casket just like that In
which we bad burled her. So he
bought the casket and we held lt for
hlni.
Something more than a year after
he tnet another woman with whom he
fell' In love and whom he married;
and after that we got a Utter from
him saying: .
Sell my casket. I've no uso for it

The Worst Case
The-worst case of mixed metaphor
known, said a teacher of English at
the University of Pennsylvania, was
the output of Sir Ellis Ashmoad Bartlett, who belonged to a Philadelphia
family. Sir Ellis once wrote to the
London Times:
The concert ot the powers in China
ls a mere delusive screen, agreeable
ln sound, very tickling to the Ignorant ear, calculated to draw the cheers
of the groundlings, but which really
serves only as a blind to ourselves, as
a cover for ministerial Inaction as a
sounding board to tell our foes of our
plans, and aa a lever wherewith they
are enabled to checkmate our policy.
Imagine, ended the Instructor—imagine a Bcreen doing all that!

Raw, Inflamed, Itching Skin Is Sooth-
-■     ed and Healed by
DR. CHASE'S OINTMENT
Barber's Itch is a form of Ringworm, which when pnee started, is
most annoying and unsightly, and
most difficult to cqre. Barbers often
refuse to shave anyone having this
disease, lor fear of passing lt on to
other customers.
But you can cure Barber's Itch and
keep the skin wonderfully soft and
healthy by applying Dr. Chase's Ointment. Just read what this teacher
has to say about the healing power
of Dr. Chase's Ointment.
Mr. Chas. C. Poirier, Upper Cara-
quet,-N.B., writes—"Two years ago
while teaching at Shlppegan I caught
Barber's Itch. A friend told me Dr.
Chase's Ointment would cure me, as
It had him. When I went for a box
I thought lt dear, but when I found
.how good It was I thought It cheap.
"Not only was I cured by that
single box, but lt also cured two of
my pupils, and this too quickly to be
believed. One ot them, a girl, had
a running sore on the chin, which the
doctor had tried In vain to cure. The
other had a sore on the ear. I can
certify to the cure of these cases."
Wherever there ls Itching skin or
a sore that refuses to heal you can
apply Dr. Chase's Ointment with positive assurance that the results will
be entirely satisfactory. The soothing, healing power of thia great ointment Is tmly wonderful. 60c. a box.

THIRTEEN YEARS
Unlucky Number for Dakota Woman
The question whether the number
"13" ls really more unlucky than any
other number has never been entirely
settled.
A So. Dak. woman, after thirteen
years of misery from drinking coffee,
found a way to break the "unlucky
spell." Tea la just aa Injurious a
coffee because It contains caffeine,
the drug In coffee.    She writes:
"For thirteen years I have been a
nervous wreck from drinking coffee.
My liver, stomach, heart—In fact, my
whole system being actually poisoned
by It,
"Last year I was confined to my bed
for six months. Finally It dawned on
me that coffee caused the trouble.
Then I began using Postum instead of
coffee, but with little faith, aa my
mind waa ln such a condition that I
hardly knew what to do next.
"Extreme nervousness and falling
eyesight cauted me to lose all courage. In about two weeks after I
quit coffee and began to use Postum,
I was able to read and my head felt
clear. I am Improving all the time
and I will be a strong, well woman yet.
"I have fooled more than one person with a delicious cup of Postum.
Mra. S. wanted to. know where I
bought my line coffee. I told her
my grocer had It and when she found
out lt waa Poatum Bhe bas used lt
ever since, and her nerves are building up line.

all, I enjoy such sound, pleasant sleep."

A Stick for a Hump
' Swing a stick to cure a hump, physical or mental. A well known physician recently stated that fewer
round shoulders would be observed In
our young men ot to-day could they
but cultivate the habit of carrying a
stick. As will easily be seen, the
use of a walking stick Inevitably
pulls back the arm. And so, quite
naturally, too, the chest ls pushed forward, thus allowing ot its expansion.
Whereas the man who carries nothing
Is Invariably nervously conscious of
his hands. And to hide them away
somewhere puts them ln his pockets.
What happens? By the very action
of thrusting his hands ln his pockets
he brings his shoulders Into the Hue
of a slouch, and so to a stoop. But
to be at all efficacious the walking
stick carried must be of ordinary sizo
—that Ib to reach as far as the hip.
A shorter stick falls In Its mission.
For either lt Is swung in the hand,
with the other hand in the pocket, or
lt Is carried high under the arm, with
both hands buried deep.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1912
Those of ont* citizens who
beard Hon. Martin Burrell
speak last Wednesday night
must have been forcibly impressed by two outstanding
4'acts; First, that since he has
become associated with Dominion politics his views on
national aifairs have expanded
to a considerable extent; and,
secondly, that as minister of
agriculture he was was not as
ready to accede to the requests pf his constituents for
grants or government work as
he might have lieen were he
only a Member of Uie house.
The first change is the evolution of the politician into the
statesman; the second is undoubtedly brought about by
governmental responsibilities.
There are many thousand
towns in Canada the size of
(1-rand Forks, nnd if each one
has as many needs of government aid as we have, the
life of a cabinet minister is
not to be envied. Looking at
the matter from another viewpoint, the question of whether
a district is really   benefited
by being represented by a
cabinet minister obstrudes itself. A cabiuet minister, has
not the same amount of time
to devote to tlie study of tlie
needs of his constituents that
a member, unencumbered by-
departmental work, has, and
is therefore apt to pigeonhole
many requests that a member, by his persistence, would
obtain. Of course there is
great honor of being of being
the home of a cabinet minister, lint does this honor oil-
set the disadvantages above
mentioned. A cabinet minister has enough work to do
without being bothered with
the welfare of a constituency,
and when a member is honored with a portfolio it would
be better if another member
could be elected to represent
his district. This would light
en the work of the minister
and probably be more satis
factory to the people of the
district.
Hunger, says a French pro
fessor, will shortly be abolish
ed by electricity. France is
behind the new world in this
science. In New York electricity is administered to
criminals. They never suffer
from hunger after the first application.
Even Premier Borden would
not have been accorded the
enthusiastic receptions tendered Sir Wilfrid Laurier during the progress of his tour
through Ontario. This fact
has begun to dawn on the
Tory newspapers, and they
are therefore beginning to renew their attacks on the Liberal leader and his policy.
An Okanagan publication
will issue a 9_j!rpage holiday
edition, Tlu* paper is reputed
to be owned by flu* provincial
minister of agriculture, and
its present prosperous condition is mainly due to the fact
that large quantities of work
that should have been done
by the king's printer at Victoria has been "farmerl" out
to this journal. Briefly,
the taxpayers of districts of
the province against which
this paper has worked have
contributed to its prosperity.

How to Make Fringe Plumes
The woman whose purBe ls slim
and whose desires are great will welcome tho fact that featherB made ot
fringe ara fashloi.able.
A fringe feather sounds funny, does
It not? But It Is not a bit queer-
looking;, unusual, perhaps, and very
graceful, says The Philadelphia North
American.
A few years ago women were satisfied to bedeck themselves In curly
ostrich feathers that measured twelve
or fourteen inches, sometimes less,
' and were quite happy with them; but
now long willow plumes measure
from eighteen to thirty-six Inches, and
cost many times the amount of the
small natural feather.
These long, costly plumes being out
of reach of many, a beautiful substitute has come from Paris and these
are quite easy to make at home, lf
you can wield a needle.
For an elghteen-lnch plume yon will
require one yard and a half ot wide
fringe, sl< o- eight Inches deep, a
pieces of round silk-covered milliner s
wire eighteen Inches long, heavy and
strong, and half a yard of Inch-wide
sal in ribbon, the color ot the fringe.
First of all, cover the wire with the
ribbon, sewing it very securely and
keeping tie seam straight; now to the
ribbon-covered wire three rows of
fringe ars sewed, covering the seam
In the ribbon and leaving a narrow
strip oj -lbbon to show that will- correspond to the rib on the natural
feather.
Great care must be taken ln sewing
on the fringe as the whole appearance of the feather depends on It; It
must be done neatly, concealing the
stitcbes as much as possible.
Having th' fringe attached to the
wire, one end—the top of the feather
—must be bent over In a curve to resemble the natural curve in the real
feathers, then, with a heated curling

as near like tbe real feather as it is
possible to make tliem appear.
Th- feather of fringe is ready to lie

The charm of this home-made feather lies In the fact that the enst I.

Which kind of a culvert
does your waggon cross?
DOES the road yon use pass brer rickety,
dangerous wooden culverts, that are constantly in need of repairs and often washed
away entirely? Or is it carried safely across the low
places by modern, everlasting culverts? Build your
CULVERTS OF CONCRETE
which not  only cannot be washed away, but
actually grow stronger with age and use.
Every farmer owes it to himself to insist that the
money he pays for road-taxes be spent to the best advan-
. tage. As a ratepayer, he is entitled to the best roads that
can be made with that money. When culverts are washed
out, and the road rendered impassable, he not only suffers
inconvenience but may also be caused financial lost by
inability to get necessary supplies in time for spring planting. And at best, with wooden culverts, part of the money
that should be used to make better roads must be spent
every year for repairs. •
Insist upon Concrete Culverts
It will pay you and everybody else in your county.

Something About Salt
The chief thought about salt In the
minds of all holiday-makers will be
In connection with the sea; but It has
other uses and significance.
Most people think that spilling salt
Is unlucky. This superstition has
heen handed down from the ancient
Romans. Two or three hundred
years ago all the servants of the
wealthy sat below the salt to show
their humble origin, and this custom
was observed not bo very long ago ln
Scotland.
Salting a coffin ls still prevalent
among some nations, but the most curious use to which salt Is put to-day
ls ln Abyssinia and Tibet, where
cakes of salt are employed as money.

WORLD'S FINEST ROSY
THE TIMUR HAS HAD A FASCINATING CAREER.
History of Stone Over Which a Qreat
Deal of Blood Has Be-n Shed Is
Lost Away Back In the Mists ol
Indian Folk-Lore—Jewel Now Occupies a Place Among the Gams el
tr.e British Crown.
Every schoolboy knows that tbe
celebrated diamond known as the
Kohinoor (Mountain of Lights) has
formed part of the British regalia
since 1850, but the general putlie has
been unaware thst the gem known in
tht days of the Mogul Empire as tha
KhlreJ-i-Alam (Tribute o! the World)
and io European experts as the Timut
Kuby, has been included among ths
crown jewels of England tor nearly as
many years.
: Sotne experts, indeed, have supposed tbat it had been lost. It is tha
largest spinel ruby known, weighing
Just over 352 carats, uncut but polish-
ad, find was probably discovered in
sue ot the old ruby mines ot Badak-
than.
The romantic history of the Jewel
has been recently 'investigated in con*
Section with the imperial tour in In*
dia. The"" earliest, historical records
show that it was seized along with
many other precious stones by tha
Ameer Timur, commonly called Tamerlane by European historians, wben
be plundered Delhi in 1393.
The great Tartar conqueror stayed
in India tor little over a year and returned to Samarkand, taking all Ills
booty with hiin. Un his death the
ruby descended to his son, Mir Shah
Bukh, and in due time to his son and
successor, Mirza Ulugh Beg.
By this time the Tartar Empire was
on the wane, and in the general dislocation during one of the wars between thb Tartars and Peninns the
Tiiby csme into the possession of tha
kings of Iran. Shah Ahbaj I., tha
flattest ct the Safavi Kings of Per.
ala, who in conjunction wi 'i the Brit-
ith forces took the island ol Ormus
from the Portuguese Jp 1622, wss a
constant friend and ally if the Mogul
Emperer Jehangir, and presented the
ruby to him ln 1612.
. At that time the gem vas inscribed
witu the names ol Timor's ton and
grandson and of Shah Abbas himself.
These inscriptions no longer exist,
and it is uncertain whether they hava
been obliterated in the course of time
or were actually removed hy the order of Jehabgir himself. At an/ rate,
the Emperor at once had ths names ol
himself and father, Akbar the Great,
engraved upon it.
Authentic records show that when
' Jehangir's favorite wife, Nur Jehan,
remonstrated with him for spoiling tha
(em by this inscription, he replied:
"This jewel will more certain!;* hand
my name to posterity than any written history. The House ot Timur may
tall, btit as long as there is a king
this jewel will be his"—.Meaning, ol
course, that the posse sion ol so valuable a stone would always remain
•with the Suzerain of Hindustan,
i It is interesting to reflect thst
throughout all the vicissitudes of Indian history this prediction hss been
fulfilled to our own dsy.
1 The ruby next passed to Shah Jehan, who also had his name inscribed
upon it, and finally had it placed in
the famous Pescock Throne. On his
deposition by his son Aurungzeb, or
Alamgir Shan, the gem went with Iha
rest of the jewels.       •
Following the example of preceding
Mogul owners, Aurungzeb added hia
name and the date pn whicli he acquired it'. The last of the Delhi emperors to inscribe his name was Mahomed Farukh 8iyar. In the reign ol
bis successor Nadir Shah invaded India and sacked Delhi (1739). Th. loot
carried •"•y te his capital, then
Ispaham, included the following inscription engraved in the cryptic style
affected by Persian scholars of tha
day:
"This (Is) the ruby from among the
twenty-flve thousar.il gei.uins jewels
el the King of King* tin Sultan Sahib Qiran, which in the year 1153 Irom
the (collection of) jewels of Hindustsn
reached this place."
i The date is that of the Hljra era
and corresponds with 1740 A.D. Sahib
(Jiran ("the Lord of the auspicious
conjunction") is the name by which
Timur has always been known i.i Asia
and the Moslem 'Vorld.
i The latest nami on the jewel Is tbat
of Ahmad Shah, Ooramonly known as
Abdali er Dunrant, who at the time of
Nadir Shah's assassination in 1717,
bald an important command in his
-victorious army. On hearing ol tha
murder he attempted to seize the
throne, but succeeded only in securing a large amount of booty, which
Se took with him when he marched
loulti at the head of his Usbeg troops
and founded the Kingdom ci Afghanistan.
t On his death in 1772 his son, Timur
Shah, succeeded to the throne of Kabul, and the ruby eventually passed
to the letter's youngest son, Shah 8u-
fa. On his expulsion by Dost Ma*
lomad he took reluge in the Punjab,
auJ Maharaja Ranjit Singh forced him
to surrender both tha Kohinoor and
the Timur Ruby.
I On the annexation ot the Punjab In
1649, the board of administration took
>ver all the state jewels. The Kohinoor was sent direct by the hands nf a
ipecial offlctr to England and at onea
delivered to the late Queen Victoria.

Ruby, was packed up in Lahore and

They were all displayed in the Great
Exhibition of 1851, and wben this was

East India Company presented the
ruby to Queen Victoria. — London

MAGIC WATER TOTS.
Wonderful play Toys That Amuse the
Children ef the Orient.
Europe and America turn out for tbe
edification of their children many ingenious toys, but the occidental youngsters have nothing to compare with the
strange expanding water toys with
which the children of the far east
have for centuries amused themselves.
These are placed ln small wooden
boxes similar to the little paint boxes
eo often seen In our own country. Tbey
bave tbe appearance ot soiled shavings,
broken matches and dilapidated toothpicks, but wben thrown into tbe water
tbe ingenious toys nt once exhibit properties tbat show tbem to be considerably more than mere bits ot stick.
Tbe wood of these toys has been kiln
dried, and Immediately lt touches the
water it begins to absorb tbe water
and to expand almost Indefinitely. As
lt increases In size It separates and
suddenly opens, becoming a very pretty toy. One stick will cbange Into a
flowerpot containing. It mny be, a rosebush ln full bloom. Another becomes
an obese mandarin carrying an umbrella. Still another wltl take the form
ot a sea serpent, very ferocious ln Its
tiny dimensions.
Then, too, there are toys whicb show
aa wbnles, tigers, crocodiles, etc. The
figures are colored and present a bewildering variety ln design and treatment Their manufacture ls a trade
secret, kept Inviolate by the guild tbat
turns tbem out by tbo thousands.
, For older children there are provided larger and even more artistic figures, consisting of historical characters—rulers, poets and soldiers—nnd
dwarfed trees and tiny bouses, whose
doors nnd windows are full of Inmates,
are also among this class. .The more
ordinary kind cost a mere song, but
tbe finer toys are quite expensive.—

When Mr. Frank W. Morse resigned

was a hard man to replace, for the
position called for a man who could
handle large contracts, who was familiar with railway construction, and
had great executive ability.
As Mr. Hays was wondering what
he would do, his secretary handed
him a card that had been sent in,
"Edson J. Chamberlin." Mr. Chamberlin had been building railways in
Mexico, and being in Montreal on a.
visit, dropped in to pay Mr. Hays a
friendly call.
As soon as he entered the room Mr.
Hays exclaimed: "You are the very,
man I have been looking for" — and

DIAMONDS SET lit SHOES.
Golden Soles,   Tee,'Wert   Warn   bf
Dames of Ancient Romt.
The boots of Roman emperors were
enriched with pearls and diamond*,
and the wealthier Romans sported the
like decorations. There were Roman
women who ornamented their low
shoes with pearls and embroideries,
gold and amber. There were manj.
whose b.ot »o',*m were of massive gold,
Pliny, speaking of his own time,
says: "Our ladies are not content to
adorn their walking shoes alone with
precious stones and jewels, but even
the slippers which they wear in their
private apartments are decorated. Precious stones do not suffice. They must,
to be in fashion, tread on pearls nnd
crowd their leet with ovnaments like
kings." Julius Caesar.wore high bocts
worked in gold and ornamented with
pearls.
Heliogabalus, who never wore a pair
of boots more than once, as he never
wore the same ring twice, hsd precious stones set in them, snd even
cameos, which excited the laughter ot
the populace because no one could see
distinctly the cunning work of famous artists. But his mother, who presided over a senate of women, forbade
women to wear shoes adorned with
precious stones, as she prescribed the
dresses that should be worn, yet the
wss a woman of wildly free life, in
comparison with whom the Empress
Messalina was a timid prude.
Alcibiades invented a boot that was
named after him and became a great
favorite, but we are not told whether
it were luxuriously foppish. What
were the Sicyonian shoet that Cicero
refused to wear, thinking them effeminate, although he admitted Ihey were
comfortable? Anglo-Saxon princes and
dignitaries ot the church wore shoes
set off with gold. Charlemagne nn
state occasions donned shoes adorned
with gems. Tho shoes of Henry VI.
of Sicily and his queen, Constance,
were of cloth of gold and bejeweled.
while the soles of cork wero covered
with cloth of gold.
Philip Stubbes In 1553 inveighed
against the "corked shoes, puisnets,
pantoffies and slippers, some of them
ol black velvet, some of white, some
of green and seme of yellow, some ol
Spanish leather and soms of English,
stitched with silk and embroidered
with gold and silver sll over tbe toot

Deep sea sailors used to laugh at

have Hide point in tbe Philippines, the
coast Hue of which has been found to
measure more than 11,000 miles—to ba

ri:ll!|iplnes there is one mile of coast

area of the islands being 116,020 square

Tbe figures for tbe United States hare

An Ingenious "Fire Box."
A very simple but nevertheless effective method of making fire ls used
ln tbe Arfak mountulns, In Dutch

a section of bamboo, usually about
nine Inches long by two Inches tn diameter, nnd Into tbla are put a supply ot
tinder and s small fragment of anything bard, preferably a piece of cblna
lf the natives can get hold of It. Tbe
tinder Is covered from tbe wet by a
piece of bark, nnd the "fire box" Is then
rendy for use whenever It Is wanted.
To get a light the nntlve merely takes
the piece of china and a lump of tinder between his thumb and flrst finger; tben, holding the bamboo In bis
left band, he strikes Its surfuce sharply wltb tbe cblna, causing s spark,
which soon Ignites the tinder. Even
the wblte mnn soon scqulres the knack
