Following the completion of a two  week's tour, during which time he visited practically every portion of the  Similkameen electoral district, Mr. L.  W. Shatford, M. P. P., returned to  the.coast on Monday, having interests  there which demand his attention. He  will visit the interior again in about  two. weeks' time.  Mr. Shatford's tour was in connection with the mapping out of this  year's road work for the Similkameen,  which is provided for by the government appropriation made at the recent  sessions of the legislature, and as has  been his custom since his election as.-  representative for the district, he personally inspects all the, proposed  improvements. He was accompanied  on the tour by Mr. A. H. Turner, the  road superintendent.  Tulameen, Coalmont, Granite Creek,  Hedley, Princeton, Keremeos, Fair-  view, Okanagan Palls and Kaleden,  were among the points visited by the  member, find Bridesville, Koek Creek  and Westbridge in the Kettle River-  district were also touched. Mr. Shatford had intended to visit Carmi, and  made every effort to do so, but, unfortunately tlie high water in the Kettle  River had washed away a portion of  the road, and it was found impossible  to get through.  Mr. Shatforti1 states that business  conditions are particirlary favorable in  the Similkameen at the present time,  and that railway* development is  giving a stimulus to the operation of  such industries as mining and agriculture. In the former industry in par-  ticuhir there was every indication 'of  greater activity; which better; transportation 'facilities were-makfug'-pos-  sible.

He says it is the  class of labor at present employed in  the,mines.    He continues:  "Fifteen years ago you could  make  a- shift boss out of practically any man  in the mine.   Today, go into the stope  of any mines in  the  larger districts  and ask  the first   man you meet a  question  about    the mine   and  two-  thirds of the time you will be greeted  with a blank expression and a shake  of the head..   Go up to the shaft when  | the shift is going to work or stop into  the office of a labor agent and listen  to the inquiries  of  'Catch a job dis  morn?'    Then   try to  imagine  these  men as prospectors.    To these men a  steady job  where  they save a considerable portion of their wages, and look  forward to a home in the old country  as an ideal, is all sufficient.   They do  not even   know    whether   they   are  working in a gold or a copper mine.  It is the job they  want,  without any  reference to  where it is so long as  it  pays.   There is no interest or fascination to their work.   As this type of  labor now represents about two-thirds  of the men around  the mines,  it is  easy to see the reason for the decrease  of the   number who  were willing to  'stake a pal' or'take a chance' themselves ten years ago.

AV. .T.  Taylor, Limited Publisher-, Woodstock,1  Ont., issues this Canadian outdoor  magazine-.  On Saturday afternoon, April 25th,  there occurred a horrible tragedy at  the Indian Reserve, an Indian Avonran  named Mary Spring being fouly  murdered fby a well known, bad Indian by name of Tullelar. This Indian has on several occasions ueen  brought before the court for his assaulting conduct and has always  been looked upon by the authorities  as being a dangerous man.  The murder which took place on  Saturday afternoon last was undoubtedly the outcome of a drunken  debauch in which apparently the  Indian woman joined, Tullelar ending the spree by cutting the woman s  throat and then attempting to es  cape.  1 his attempt he evidently abandoned, returning to the scene of  his debauch and endeavoring to  cut his own throat, being overpowered  arid held by other Indians in the  Reserve until the arrival of P. C.  King to the scene on horseback and  arresting him.  Dr. Tutill had upon the alarm being given hastily hurried tothe Reserve but on arrival found the woman  beyond all human aid.  Her remains were brought into  the city and lay resting in Mr. N.  J. Bat-wick's undertaking parlors until Tuesday morning last, when they  were taken by her relatives and  friends to Shulus cemetery and  buried. The Indian was brought,  into the . city by " Police Constable  King and locked up in the Provincial jail, where he remained until  brought before Magistrate Morgan,  with Chief Constable Burr of Ash-  croft acting on behalf, of the Crown  as prosecutor.

SHATFORD SPEAKS ��������� " "-**-  ON GOOD PROSPECTS  Members   for  Similkanreeh    Looks  Busy Year in Interior of  Province  For  GENERAL    NEWS  MINING NOTES  ���������Vancouver, B. C, May 0.���������"With  promise of a bumper fruit crop and  with mining prospects, increasingly  bright I look for a busy year irr the  Similkameen and Okanagan districts."  said L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., today.  Mr. Shatford has just reached the  city after a trip through his electoral  tiding. The Similkameen member  believes that construction work on the  Kettle Valley line will be advanced to  such an extent that service to the  coast via the Nicola branch of the Canada Pacific railway will be provided  about the end of the year. The Hope  mountain cut-off on the Kettle '-'.Valley  line will re-quire nearly another-' year  of work, however.  When this railway provides access  through to the coast there will lie  something approaching a boom in the  Boundary, Kettle Valley, Similkameen  and Okanagan sections and Kootenay  will feel the benefits, conring from  closer connection with the coast, he  declares. In the Similkameen electoral district there will be. additional ad-  van Uiges received by reason of the  fact that the finishing of the work on  the Kettle Valley line will allow the  Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern trains  to get through to the coast via the  Kettle Valley and the Canadian Northern lines.  HOME RULE CRISIS IN ULSTER  That traces of radium have been  found in various portions of the Peace |  River Block, located east of the foothills arrd west of Edmonton, is the  effect of a report being circulated in  that city. Several persons have reported its existence in the district, and  it is said there is quite a movement  at the present time of interested parties toward the Piece River Block.  METEOROLOGICAL.

Officials of the company clain that  their plant is the most up-to-date and  the best equipped on the American  continent.  The ore was struck last week on the  lower level of the Lucky Thought  mine, on Four-mile. It is of a much  better grade than the shipment made  from   the same mine about a month  The most important mining .deal in  the Kaslo district for a year past was  closed last? week when $12,000 was  paid on a bond covering the Cork  properties and certain timber arid  water rights arrd a quantity of mined  zinc ore. W. E. -Zwyc'hey of Kaslo  and W. P. Tierney of Vancouver are  among those who are interested. The  Cork mine is on the south fork of  Kaslo creek. There is a 100 ton concentrator on the property.  A big deal was put through recently  whereby a Philadelphia company takes  over the big gold quartz property at  Surf Inlet on Vancouver Island. The  price is said to be $800,000, and the  purchasers are the Tonopah-Belmont  company. The property is located  about 25 miles inland. It is a free  milling gold proposition, arid there is  an immense tonnage insight. A big  revival of mining and general business  is looked for' on the island.  The first shipment of copper'-from  tho Granby Consolidated Mining &  Smelting Company's plant at Hidden  creek was brought dowrr from the  north to Vancouver' a few clays ago  and Avas sent to a large refining company in Now York. There were 930  bars in the consignment, the metal  weighing 122 tons, and being valued  at 15c per pound. It is stated that  now that the plant is in operation  there Avill probably be two shipments  sent out a month, of between 400 and  500 tons each. The bars are practically pure copper, or Avhat is known  in mining parlance as "blister" copper.  The other one per cent is a mixture of  gold and silver.  The political pot in Ulster seems  likely to come to a boil over the excitement of some gun-running exploits  which have been successfully pulled  off during the past week, and the British cabinet is'finding itself .face to face  with a serious situation.  -A consignment of about-forty tbotrs- .  and rifles and half a million  rounds of  ammunition from Germany is said to  have been landed by a mysterious German steamer at isolated points on the  coast of Ulster  and   distributed    by  means of two hundred "automobiles to  various .headquarters   of   the Ulster  "Volunteers".    Those Ulsterman who  declare ���������themselves determined  to offer armed  resistance to the introduction of Home Rule mobilized and guarded the  landing  places and roads  until the distribution  of arms was completed.   The police were powerless to  interfere and all means of communication were temporarily interrupted by  the Ulster Volunteers during the distribution.  The Irish  Nationalist volunteers, a  body similiar in  organization  to  the  Ulster Unionist Volunteers, made matters even with  their political opponents  by successful 1}- landing a large  consignment of arms.    The weapons,  which are saiel  to have  been  brought  from America, were taken ashore at a  remote spot on the  coast of County  Donegal, in the far west of Ulster. The  size of the consignment is unknown,  but it is believed to have  been considerable,  although    not equalling    the  40,000 rifles    and   500,000   rounds   of  ammunition the Unionists received.  MINING NOTES  An English syndicate is having an  area on Graham Island prospected for  coal, F. C. Green of Seattle being in  charge of the work. The ground is  being drilled.  A leading Vancouver trust company  has in hand the organizatron of a  company and the finding of capital to  develop the salt deposits on the Skeena  river, and if arrangements are completed works will be establrshed there  which will supply the fisheries, meat  supply firms, dairies and industrial  farms on the coast with what salt is  required. This is likely to develop  into an important industries.  The profits of the Britannia mine on  Howe sound last year amounted to 44  per- cent on the capital stocl. The  capacity of the mill was doubled during the year and a higher grade product obtained. The new mill in course  of construction will have a eapacity  of from 1,500 to 1,S00 tons a day, making the total capacity of the plant  2,500 tons a day. It is intended to  have the new plant completed and in  operation by the end of this year. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, MAY l-i:   191-1.  tazttte  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

It is easy enough  however to cry "back to tho lanel" but  not so easy to accomplish that  highly desirable purpose. Man can  note-veil begin to live by manufacturing alone. Agriculture must be pursued for agriculture is the source of all  ndustry. Men grew corn long before  he manufactured steel or even  copper. Woman plucked apples for  consumption long before she adorned  herself. Civilization in its advance  seems to have reversed the- process.  Today man thinks of liiaiiufactuies  first and then of corn, while women  infinitely prefers clothes to apples.  The  backbone   of   any  community I  is  its agricultural population.     It is  more  of  a  fixture.     A man   can  not  desert-bis agriculture  holding in   the  same    way   he   can    desert   bis   industrial job.    He has   built up  with  ruucb  labor   something  which  gives  him a return arid in giving  him  that,  return  it   is  of   great ��������� value'   to  the  whole community.    He is   a  regular  purchaser in  the   local  market.    He  wants   clothes   and'    all   the    other-  necessities of life.   The more  he  can  make.out' of bis farming  the   better  for the -community,  for lie adds  to its  purchasing power.    As a rule he does  not  take   his   money   elsewhere    to  spends it but invests it in the  things  he   knows   and     understands.     The  last half century has seen  a  tremendous draining   of  the   youth    of all  highly civilized land  into the  towns.  The- great advance of   manufactures  . has   attracted  them   like  the  candle  the moth.    The closer packing  of the  community and  the opportunity  for  meeting  more  people   has   inevitably  drawn the ambitious and  the restless.  Country life has seemed dull.    Dozens  of stories have dealt with  this  phase  of  the   problem���������-literature    too   has  stimulated  the minds of   its renders  and  made  them long for the  excitements of which they read.    Undoubtedly reading has been  largely responsible for the discontent with   country  life.    To day it is recognized  that unless the land can  be.  made attractive  it is useless to  shout  in  people's  cars  "back to  the   land."   The first   task  is to find in  the country the attraction  which  will   excercise    the same  magnetic influence on the. mind as the  city.   footsteps.of such a popular gervernor-  gi-neial.    The   Duke  came to  Canada  not unknown.    But the    Prince  is  a  Stranger and Canada is apt to- be very  critical eif strangers, especially if they  be--  of  royal   blood.    That is  natural,  fin-  we   expect    much    of   our    royal  family and are  apt to   forget that be--  ing royal doe.-, not  prevent one   being  human.     The    Duke   of   Comiaugbt  iuoii-^lit  with   him   his   wife and   the  Princess    Patricia.    His   family    im-  eloiibie-elley  adde-d   much to  his   popularity  and in   this   respect-once  more  Canada   is   extremely    fortunate.    In  tin- Princess  Alexander of Teck   Canada will have one of the   most lovable  of   all    princesses.     Her   popularity  in Great Britain is very great.    She is  the. sister   of   the    reigning   duke  of  Saxe'-Coburg    and    Gotha    and    fh>l  cousin of the Queen of the Netherlands.  Her father    was> the  youngest son   of  the late Queen   Victoria and   his early  death casta gloom over  the people eif  Great Britian   with whom   he was extremely popular.    He had great charm  of manner which   has  been   inherited  by his  daughter, who  is saiel  to bo  a  very dt-moe-r-atic. and   attractive  personage.  Prince..Alexander is a soldier and  was A. D. C. to Colonel Million in  South Africa. As such he was at the  re-lint* of MafckiiiK and won his D. S.  O. He is just 40. tall and good-looking. He has shown considerable organizing ability in the various duties  which have fallen to him since King  George's accensioii made him brothei-  in-law to the: King. He has been married nine years and has two children.  Thus Canada gets a royal young  couple as representative of the King.

But the pleased smile still lingered around his mouth when he had  put the delicate spikes in water and  was reading the solemn looking book.  Before the hyacinths had faded thero  was another floral surprise for the new  rector. This time it was a rose that  lay on tlie printed page���������a pink, softly  growing, velvety rose���������that made him  think of Alys Ward. He had met her a  few times since coming to bis new  parish, and lie found himself most persistently haunted from the first by her'  demure beauty and pretty, graceful  ways.  Ho rang the bell.  "Has any one called to see me this  morning. Mrs. Mason?"  "No one. sir." Airs. Mason regardc:l  him ndmirinj-iy. Tie was a fine representative of the church militant. That  (straight, soldierly figure, siiuarc- shoul-  devs and proudly carried head would  have looked well lending a ro-riincnt.  For several days after the finding  of the rose instead of loitering in the  dining room to read the morning papers Mr. Craig brought them with him  directly to the study. The rose drooped. He shook the loosening petals in  the big book. There was no odorous  successor'. I'.ut one morning lie was  summoned to the bedside of a hypochondriac acquaintance who was undergoing one of bis periodical attacks  of dissolution. Striding ,-.iv.*entminded-  Iy into the. study on his return, he  stopped short, his nostrils assailed by  a perfume elusive as cxeiuisite.  "Violets!" he exclaimed. "Violets'"  Violets there were���������a blue drift of  them across the open pages of the  learned book.  This time, in the absence of Mrs. Mason, he interrogated Kllon���������and with  more success.  "Sure, 'tis a slip uv a colleen do be  after bringin' them!" declared -Ellen,  who was fresh from the Emerald Isle  and a new acguisition in" the clerical  household. "Her name do be AVard,  they tell me. She lives in the great  house beyi'.nt."  "That will do," said rue Itov. Mr.  Pei'cival li.-stily. But he did not read  in the wide volume that day. Instead  ho sat a long time look inn dreamilv  at the violets and wondering���������oh, the  most marvelous things!  Although he had been much flattered by women, he had scant share  of conceit. So at the close of his  reverie he sighed. He could attribute  to naught save pure ncighborliness the  gifts of the girl to whom his love had  gone oiit almost at first sight. Nevertheless, when the violets were Avith-  ered, on two successive mornings he  left the house with much ostentation  and soon thereafter noiselessly let  himself Into the hall. On the second  morning there was a flurry of white  by the study table as he abruptly entered the room, then a fall and a cry  of pain. Instantly he sprang across  the floor���������to pick up the slim little  lassie of six, who lay with a bunch; o������ j  lilies of the valley clasped tightly ia  her tiny fingers.'  ���������I didn't Avant you to���������to'know 'twas  me!" she sobbed. "I always brought  them to old Mr. Snowdon. Mrs. Mason  used to let me in. And he never knew  'twas mo. He used to tell me the fairies or���������or maybe just one fairy-  brought them to him. And I'd laugh  and laugh. Ouch!" She colored; hotly  with the pain.  "My foot got hurted 2"  "I'll carry you home," Percival as-  -sureQ .her tenderly.    "You  liked  Mr.  Snowdon (who!; by the way, was the  predecessor of the Rev. Mr. Craig), you  liked him very much?"  "Yes. Maybe I'll like you, too, some  time. Alys���������she's'" uiy sister���������says you  are most���������most���������I forget. It was a  long word. But it means nice. Tommy  Brown says Mr. Snowdon only pr-3-  tended he didn't know about me being  the fairy. Isn't Tommy a horrid boy?"  "Horrid!" assented Percival Craig.  "Don't be frightened, Miss Alys!" For  she had come flying down the steps at  sight of him and his burden.  "Fairies always get well quickly," he  assured little May. "I intend coming  to see you every day until you can  come to see me."  "Do," begged the child from the shelter  of  her sister's   arms.    "But  you  won't ever think I'm a real fairy noAV."  Alys laid her on the sofa and went  out to telephone the doctor.  "Oh, yes; I will if you help me to get  my wish. Good fairies always help  mortals."  ���������"What Is. your wish?"  "I want you to coax dear Alya to  marry  me and have you  for flower  girl."  "That's easy. Alys will do anything  for mo," declared May complaisantly.  "Say���������I remember that word now. It  was at-tractive."  "Good-little fairy!" cried Craig and  hastened off. In his study he gently  picked up the blossoms she had insisted on leaving. He recalled the look in  Alys Ward's eyes Avhen she had taken  May from him, and his pulse thrilled.  "Good little sister!" he said. "Dear little fairy floAver girl!"

EXPERIMENTS WITH  FORAGE PLANTS  As has been the practice ever since  the. work with forage plants was undertaken by the Dominion Experimental Farms, the principle varieties of  the different kinds of forage plants  have been grown during the past year  with the object of determining their  relative value. During the season of  1013 the tests conducted in duplicate  by the Division of Forage Plants at  the Central Experimental Farm and  the Experimental Farms and Stations  throughout Canada consisted of 11  different varieties of Indian Corn, 19  varieties of turnips, 13 varieties of  mangels, 6 varieties of carrots and 3  varieties of sugar beets. The work  with leguminous forage plants and  grasses including alfalfa and clover,  consisted of breeclrng for increased  hardiness, breeding for high yielding  strains of a superior quality, and experiments with timothy, orchard  grass, western rye grass and some  wild grasses. In order to place the  more important results of the season's  work before the public in a summarized form, bulletin No. 70 has been prepared by M. O. Malte, Ph.

He's one of those men with  an absurd fear of the "waste-circulation" bugaboo  ���������cannot get away from the haunting thought that  only 10 out of every 100 readers of a newspaper  may be possible buyers of his goods.  > So he refused to advertise, and went a-canvassing  ���������inviting people to come to his piano recitals.  Then he wondered why they didn't come.  This is why:  * He wasn't reaching the people.  His canvassers rang every door-bell in  town. They talked to some one in every  house.  ' But one in every household isn't enough  ���������particularly if it doesn't happen to be  die right person. And, as a rule, it wasn't  the right person���������it was a servant, or a  child, i The woman of the house was seldom  $ecn; the man of the house, never.  Now, if the piano maker had placed an  ad. in the newspaper, it would have reached  thousands, where the canvassers could  reach only hundreds.  And even though only 10 per cent, of the  readers are actual piano buyers, this does  not mean that the advertising read by the  other 90 per cent, is wasted. Advertising  talks, not only to the prospective buyer.  but also to his wife, his grown-up sons and  daughters, his mother���������even his mother-  in-law. Their coaxing will help to convince  the head of the house���������and pretty soon  there'll be a piano in that home.  This and dozens of similar cases which  might be cited to show that "waste circulation" is an empty bugaboo, and should  deter no one.  Take the motor truck.
