Gilbert Stuart's  famous portrait of Washington, flan iced on either-side by portraits of President Diaz ' of Mexico and Premier  Laurier of Canada, looked down upon  the diners, and the principal formal  addresses dealt with the United States  and her two neighbors on the North  American continent.  The guests of honor were- .the British ambassador, James Brycei Joseph  F, Godoy, Mexican charge d'affaires at'  Washington ; Byron E. Walker and  Clifford Sifton, both of Canada, and  James J. Hill, the railroad builder of  the northwest.  Calling attention to 'the close connection between the histories of the  United States and Canada, J. J. Hill  showed the importance of the trade between the two countries, and scored  what he called the policy of mutual exclusion. "What the commercial relation- ought to be," he said, "is indicated by their parallel development  and the mingling of their commerce.  Without committing any others,here;  I do not hesitate to declare my own'  opinion. I believe that the most natural, the ixsost rational, the most highly profitable commercial status between Canada and the United States is  absolute freedom of trade.  Unrestrained commerce  "That ' commerce.^ .must eventually  move unrestrained between these two  peoples is self-evident. Why not  strike- off the shackles now and Jet it  move freely, instead of paying the  heavy penalty of delay? Protection,  has no meaning or effect as applied by  either one of these countries against  the other. Assumption of .some fixed  variation in the wage level is nonsense. Men are free to come and go  and New England at this'moment depends for her labor largely upon her  French-Canadian population. Wages  do vary, just as they vary between  New York and Colorado; but their  average under similar conditions is the  same in the two countries."   '���������;  Mr. Hill declared that by the middle  of this century the consumption of  wheat in this country'would'reach  1,300,000,000 bushels, The present production is only one-half that amount.  Whatever part of the addition to this  country's future food supply came  from the wheat fields of the nortir-  western country, he argued^ should be  alloAved to flow unchecked to the consumer. Letters were read from President Roosevelt, Governor Hughes  and Lord Grey, governor general of  Canada.  we learned'that  officials consisting of R. Marpole, ad-  visay officer for the. Western division  accompanied by H. J. Cam hie, consulting engineer and locating engineer  H. E. Carry, were on their, way from  Princeton on the through trip from  Nicola to Penticton. They had come  by rail fiom the Coabt Lj> Spence's  Bridge and from there had taken the  | Nicola branch to Nicola.'  It was about nine o'clock at night and  very dark when they reached Hedley,  being driven here by N.Houston of  Princeton. '  This was the first timo'that the Gazette editor had met Mr: Marpole since  the summer, of 1S93 when, we used to  .see him quite frequently; and while  the ripening power, of time had been  at work the years have borne lightly upon him, and he apuears good for a loug  spell of work yet in behalf of the great  corporation whose interests he has  endeavored to advance" dining many  years of faithful service. Mr. Cambie  is considerably past the prime of life  and is now one of' the -oldest- men in  the C. P. R. service. To him a trip  .like this must have been rather trying.  Mr. Carry on the other hand, like the  typical locating engineer, is hard and  wiry and good for any amount of  knocking about.  Their object was given out on the  coast to be that of following the route  of the survey between Nicola and  Penticton, but whether the impossibility of driving over the sky route  surveyed last summer, or a preference  for the Similkameen brought them  this way! they were at all events here,  and they looked quite at home.  It was unfortunate that they could  nob have remained over at Hedley for  a day, especially as this was the first  time Mr. Marpole had gone over this  section of the province.        ; ���������������������������-.,������������������'  The question of plans for connecting Nicola and Midway was one that  Mr. Marpole was disposed ^to shy. at  and it was not advisable to press him  too closely on it.  Jack McKenzie drove them to Penticton next day, making' an early  start from Hedleyi ���������  PROTECT THE FOREST WEALTH  Prof. Fersfrw's Warning*  to the   People  of Canada is  Described as the  Voice of one Crying in  the Wilderness.  THAT PIONEER DENIAL.  IMPORTANT  MINING   DEAL  Eagle's Nest No. 2  Mineral  Claim  Has  Been Added   to the Florence Group  This week Thos. Bradshaw pup-  chased for hi-- company the Eagle's  Nest No. 2 mineral claim from E. D.  Boeing to round out the Florence  group, upon which important development work will be undertaken during  the coming year.  Mr. Bradshaw's associate in the  Florence group Mr. Geo. M. Gilbert,is  in England and arrangements are progressing satisfactorily for interesting  English capital in the enterprise.  The good opinion held of the Florence group by Mr. Camsell of the Geological Survey, is shared by those who  know the property best, and the Eagle's Nest No. 2 claim is in a position to  add very materially to the value of  the group and brings it 1500 feet nearer town.  The Phoenix Pioneer by way of  denial of the charge made in the  Gazette" of two -\veeks ago that copies  of the Pioneer given out from the post  office in Hedley contained the Hindu  picture in those to Liberals, the union  leaflet in those to union men and no  inclosure in those, addressed to Conservatives, indulged in a great deal of  unnecessary abuse of this paper and  its editor. If the the denial were  made in a more straight forward  manner without all that verbosity,  equivocation and abuse we would feel  bound to accept it and look elsewhere  than to the Pioneer office for the fault;  but as it is, we are unconvinced of the  Pioneer's innocence in the matter.  What we know about it is that this  paper made the charge in perfectly  good faith believing its absolute correctness. Since the Pioneer's equivocal denial has appeared we have  made further enquiries of the source  of our information and are. still quite  certain that the facts are practically  as stated, and that other copies of the  Pioneer, than those specified by its  editor in its last issue, were given out  from the Hedley post ofYice that week  and did contain the enclosures as  slated in this paper.  Now if the Pioneer is not guilty,  then some postmaster between  Phoenix and Hedley is guilty, and if  the Pioneer would rather have it that  way and will say plainly that those  inclosures . must have been inserted  after the bundle went out of the proprietor's possession, we will accept it:  but if he will insist that no copies of  the Pioneer were given out from the  post office here except those enumerated by hi in, we will accept nothing  from hint, for we know better.  'Dr. E. B. Per now, dean of the faculty of Forestry at the University of Toronto,  in an address  on  "The Truth  About Our Timber," before the Canadian Club at  Toronto   the other day,  dealt with matters of special  interest  to the people of this  province,  which  possesses such   immense lumber   resources. We quote from the report appearing in the Mail and Empire:     ���������    .  Every patriotic citizen should realize the deplorable mismanagement of  the most valuable  resource,  and  personally exercise himself to secure im  provement, and the first duty is to stop  the fires."   He said  that the Eastern  forest had in  the last  hundred years  been slowly robbed of its  best values,  and while the government .had, from  the sale of  timber,  secured a certain  amount of revenue  which 'had made  other taxation unnecessary, the golden  goose was now nearly killed, and other  sources of revenue would soon have to  be found.   'The worst feature   of   the  mismanagement of a valuable property  which might have produced forever.,  was, that after the timber was   taken  oil' fires were allowed to run  through  the slash and destroy the young growth  ���������the hope of the future.    Dr. Fernow  impressed    upon    the    audience   the  fact that Canada was not rich in timber.  Canada was no doubt a woodland country, fifty per cent of which  perhaps  was covered with tree growth of some  kind, but the area throughout Canada  which at any time contained commercial saw timber- was relatively small to  the size of the country.    It was comprised in two widely separated'regions,  ���������on   the Pacific coast  within   75,000  square miles, and on the Atlantic coast,  south of. the Height-.of. Land,  within  2-10,000 square miles, a  total of about  200,000,000 acres.    The actual  area of  merchantable   saw     timber   was not  known, but probably did not  exceed  50,000,000 acres in British Columbia, or  about three hundred billion feet, and a  like quantity in the Eastern provinces.  The six hundred billion  feet thus represented would meet the requirements  of the United States for not more than  fifteen  or twenty years,   although it  might supply Great Britain's consumption four times as long.

MARTIN BURRELL'S THANKS  The following letter from Mr. Burrell, being delayed in transmission,  did not reach us in time for last  issue.  Grand Fo rks, Nov. 14th, 1908  Editor  Hedley Gazette  Dear Sir:  Would you permit me through the  columns of your paper to thank the  many friends- through your district  who gave nre such a splendid support  in the recent campaign.  I realize that the questions of Japanese immigration and Better Terms  were responsible for the strong en-  dorsation of the Conservative side,  and I also realize that throughout the  great fruit growing districts I received  much assistance from those who considered that the Horticultural interests  of British Columbia had not had sufficient attention in the House of  Commons.'  The task of defeating a Government  candidate in the face of persistent appeals to support those who had control  of the national purse, strings was not  easy. Itis intensely gratifying, therefore, to find that the majority of the  people expressed themselves so strongly for principle as against expediency.  It has not been a personal victory  but 1 may be pardoned for thanking  most deeply the many friends who  worked so loyally aud unselfishly for  me during the campaign.  To the work of the officers and mem  hers of the various Conservative. As  sociations throughout Yale-Cariboo  the results of the 12th are chiefly due,  but I also.recognize that in this election I owe not a little to those who  despite of party ties gave me then-  support.  The following sketch in reference to  exploration work .done  by  -Professor  Montgomery    will    be  of interest to  Gazette readers several of whom   met  him  a few-'years'-ago "on-"occasional  trips  which    he. made   to  Camp McKinney.     Prof.  Montgomery  was at  one  time state mineralogist for   the.  state of Utah and professor of geology  in the  university  of Utah..    He  was  also for a while professor- of .geology  in the state university of Dakota and  in .both these.states did a. great deal of  investigation   which   added   to    the  knowledge  which   we  have  of  these  ancient mound-builders.    He has been  connected:y.with   Trinity  University,  Toi onto   for the past. ten. or twelve  years.   The . sketch'.-'of. his, recent investigation, is iis follows!:���������Prof. Henry  Montgomery of the University  of Toronto, returned'to   the  city recently  from   a    three   months'" exploration  trip in the interests  of the. new  university   museum..    During   the trip  Prof.    Montgomery explored  sixteen  prehistoric mounds,'   three enclosures  of house sites and  several  long earth  embankments,     principally    in    the  province of   Manitoba.     That  cremation of the dead had  been   practiced  by the prehistoric  people  was shown  by the   presence of many crematory  heartbs   deep down  within  some of  these, imouuds.     The   typical   burial  pits containing skeletons   irr a sitting  position,   and along .with  them  pottery, stone  and bone and  other  implements and ornaments.  While most of the mounds are  situated in high places, there is a  series of lookout mounds upon isolated natural hills of unusual height  irr that otherwise level country.  These are from thirty to fifty miles  distant fronr each other, and their  occupants thus by signals were capable of communicating speedily the  one with the other and holding control of the entire region for hundred of miles.  Pilot mound in southern  Manitoba  is  one   of   these   hills consisting   of  shale and'glacial clay,  and   being  upwards of a huudred feet  high.     Orr  its   summit   is   an  artificial mound,  which   upon,   excavation     by    Prof..  Montgomery,   was   found  to contain   ,  burial pits,   skeletons,  weapons   and  ornaments   of   considerable interest  Beads made from t>vo   species of marine shells not. only show  intercourse  with   the southeastern   mound-building    tribes   of   the   states,   but also  place   these   people   with    those   of  North    Dakota,  both  as  to   the  material and the designs  of the articles  made.     The presence  of native,  copper beads, which have been   manufactured by means  of; their stone  tools,  showed    their    connection    with   the  ancient    copper-mining     people     of  northern Michigan ; and  by   the  methods of mimufacture  they  evidence  a   close   relationship    with    the  prehistoric tribes which dwelt in  Danota.  In  all   instances there  was   nothing  found to  indicate relations   or  intercourse with the. white people  or  with  the  existing  Indians,   although  it is  very probable that they hud a  remote-  relationship with the Indians.  Prof. Montgomery has collected  many specimens of value and interest  to science, which in due time are to be  placed in the cases of the. provincial  university, In prosecuting this work  he has travelled-more than seven hundred miles in an open wagon, and has  removed immense quantities of earth  and boulders.  l>ivine service will be held in the  church on Sunday evening next, by  Rev. J. Thurburn Conn.  It is impossible fop me to answer  personally all those who have so kindly written their congratulations, and  I trust they will be good enough to let  nre tell them in this way that T deeply  value their good wishes, and to assure  them that if I fail in the performance  of my duty as their member it will not  be for the want of trying earnestly to  do that duty both in the letter and  spirit.  I am, Sir,  Yours very truly,  Martin LKu-ucll. ,THJ?

A. MEGRAW, Managing Editor.  "AN OLD THEME  J.  J.  Hill's speech   in   New  York last   week  in  which he  came   out     boldly    for.    free  trade between Canada and  the  United.. States  will   re-awaken  interest in an old theme.    Years  ago  protection  vs.   free 'trade  was fought out in this  country  both in the press and from  the  public platforms; but since the  Liberals in Canada have   stolen  the protection plank from   the  Conservative   trade   policy,  it  has been shelved until now  the  budding politicans in this country    scarcely know  what free  trade means.    But there was a  time when politicians both   old  and young did know,  although  trade the policy in vogue in the  country   before  the  protective  tariff of 1879 was  drafted,   was  not free trade, but an attenuated  affair of 17 per cent  that  was,  by apology, termed a tariff for  revenue and   it didn't produce  the   necessary   revenue.     The  nearest approach to free   trade  which we have had  in Canada  was the ten year period of reciprocity with the United States  which was established by treaty  in 1854 and  was abrogated by  the     United    States    in     1864  because of a little irritation engendered   at the  close of the  civil war.   Since that date Canada has made  overtures  time  and again for the renewal of  the    reciprocity    arrangement  but in every case her advances  have been met by  refusal,  and  now   we  have abandoned   the  role of suppliant on  that line.  Yet when the national policy was  introduced in this country  and  laid before the  electors   in  the  election campaign of 1878, it is  a well known fact that even the  Conservatives did not advocate  protection for its own sake  but  merely as a means towards  an  end and that end was the  restoration of reciprocal trade  relations between Canada and the  United    States.       Under   that  trade policy introduced  by the  Conservatives in 1879  Canada's  trade has expanded enormously  both during the eighteen years  of Conservative rule  and that  under the Liberals as well.     Of  late years there, has been a  growing tendency in certain  sections of the United States to  favor a restoration of ������������������ reciprocal, trade, but it is doubtful  whether it would meet with as  ! ready a response from the Canadian people as formerly. In  tlie earlier years of protection  in Canada both political parties  would have welcomed such a  movement ou the part of the  United States, but all the while  protection as a trade doctrine  has, been gaining ground in this  country until it has become a  part of our fiscal creed, and  manufacturers could be counted on to bitterly oppose any  change which might render this  country a dumping ground for  the over-production -of-. United  States manufacturers.  Possibly from a railway man's  point of view free trade between the two countries would  be a good thing, and there is no  denying the fact that the'maintenance, of a long double line of  custom houses seems a barbarous, clumsy aud costly method  of collecting revenue, but there  is nothing else in sight to take  its place except direct taxation,  and it would be exceedingly  difficult to devise any plan by  which the revenue required to  carry on the government could  be obtained by direct taxation  which would distribute the burden.as evenly over all classes of  the community or make that  burden so little felt  ductionisbound to lend impetus j  to it. |  THE BANK OF  The Japencse naval review  at Kobe a few days ago which  showed 124 fighting- ships in  line, offered a very effective object lesson to the rest . of  rest world. While this number of fighting machines is  in itself something to command  serious attention, there goes  with it also the absolute assurance that they are in the hands  of those who know how to use  them.  No35G.  CERTIFICATE OF  THE   REGISTRATION  OF AX. EXTRA-PROVIXCIAL  i>    .COMPANY. ' ��������� '-,  News despatches in the dailies  indicate1" that    the   Dominion  Government has. given   to Mr.  Lemieux the power to negotiate  with the Australian and Imperial    Governments'   for    joint  action in tlie laying of ,-m all-  red cable.    Now as the laying of j j^nS of Canada  a  cable   costs something over  $1000 per mile and tlie distance  from Australia  to  the   Pacific  coast of Canada is S500   miles,  this represents a sum that the  people of Canada should  think  twice about undertaking, especially in  view  of  the fact that  wireless telegraph has long since  passed the  experimental  stage  and is available at much less  cost to do.all the "work  that  is  done by cables.   Across the Atlantic, for instance, the  cost of  a  cable  line  varies from four  million  to  six  million  dollars,  and wireless by means of stations, on either side; which can  be constructed for twenty thousand each  or forty   thousand  dollars all told,  will do  much  quicker work, the  comparative  speed of working being fourteen  to one in favor of wireless.    "Be  not the first to take up the new  nor yet the last to throw  away  the old" is an old and trite  saying, and nowaday  things grow  old very fast   especially in  the  line  of machinery   and equipment.   As soon  as  any particular machine is superseded  by  another that will  do  its work  quicker and more   economical,  the wide-awake operator  finds  it to his advantage to put  that  machine   on   the    scrap  heap.  Wireless has long since  passed  the experimental  stage and  is  fast bounding into universal use  on sea and land, and in view of  this fact it is questionable procedure on the part of the  government of the day to uselessly  sink the people's money on anything .;o andiquated  as a submarine cable is soon to become.  -.'."Companies Act, 1897."

Bert Irwin, of Princeton, is in town  this week. .   t.  J McCreath, of Greenwood, was in  town this week. '.,,'  G, D. ;McKay, of Vancouver, came  in on Tuesday's- stage.  I. L. Deardorff, road supervisor, returned on Tuesday from an inspection  tour iri the west end of the- riding.  Duncan Ross has gone to Ottawa.  On the eve of his departure the Liberals of Greenwood tendered him a  banquet.  F. J: Gillespie, of Vancouver, representing the Excelsior Life Insurance  Co. is in town this week soliciting insurance for his company.  Dr. Whillans is expected back to  Hedley about the middle of December.  It was his intention when he left to remain in Chicago uutil the spring.  The Similkameen river made a quick  rise last week, which put all-the fords  out of business. This made it a bit  wetter in the river and a heap drier  for some railway nauvies across the  river, for all the booze is on this side.  The Vernon News has returns that  take in nearly all the polling-places in  Yale-Cariboo and gives a total majority for Burrell of 896.' The few outlying places^ to be heard from will  possibly increase it enough to round  out 900.  Rev. Dr. White, superintendent of  Methodist missions, writes theGazette  that Rev. R. W. Hibbert, of Penticton,  .will look after the Hedley mission and  endeavor to hold service here once a  month, either coining himself or arranging for some one else to come.  , J. Peck MacSwain arrived in the  city last Friday, too late to vote, as he  had been delayed in transmission.  Peck was on crutches, the result of an  accident in Fernie, and resembled a  defeated, candidate when he greeted  his many friends upon Copper street.  :���������Ledge. ,,   '  That was a cruel jab; but never  mind we'll lay for Bro. Brown and  catch him later on. Our confrere of  the Trumpet in writing us on a little  business matter adds as follows:  "Anient elections, is there any truth in  the report that you are selling out' to  Ross on account of Hedley being the  only liberal strong-hold in the riding?"  The Hospital meeting on Monday  night was. very poorly attended and  as a result nothing was done further-  than reading of minutes of previous  meeting and submission of the' treasurer's statement. It was therefore  decided to adjourn the meeting for  two wt:eks, when it is hoped that all  citizens who can attend will endeavor  to do so.  Mrs. H. S. Joynei- has heard from.  Seattle that Edwin Rodgers has been  quite ill. At first it appeared that  typhoid was threatened, but later on  it transpired that a number of others  were affected in like manner, the cause  being attributed to food poisoning  through use of a brand of canned goods  that proved to be tainted with metallic  poisoning.  Shareholders in the Carbon Hill  Coal and Coke Co. resident in  Keremeos and Hedley will be pleased  to know that word from the mine indicates that the tunnel being run in  on one of the newly discovered seams  was in 350 feet, the coal showing a  thickness of 11 foe.t and of a quality  conceded to be the finest yet obtained  in the Crowsnest district. .  H. A. Hincks is developing into a  Nimrod of the highest class, having  added another trophy in a big buck  which he killed np Smith Creek on  Sunday. This "Monarch of the Glen"  wrs a six-pointer, and the antleis being symmetrical would have made a  splendid head for mounting, but unfortunately the lower jaw was broken  with the bullet which brought him  down.  A grand masquerade ball is announced to take place in Princeton on  New Years eve, to be given by the  married ladies of Princeton in Thomas  Hall. Already a number of Hedley  patrons of the dance are laying their  plans to take it in, and the announcement being made so early it will enable all others who may be interested  in entertainments about that time to  keep this date open. AVhen the married ladies of Princeton take anything  of this kind in hand a success is assured.  King Kennedy,  Brown's dog"andthe"Oyster industry"  among the rest.

Mi-. Marcus Daly, ,president of tho  Duly Reduction Coi and Yale Mining  Co., paid Hedley a visit last week, remaining until Tuesday, when he left  for New York. This trip, when completed, will bring the number of miles  which he has travelled by train find  steam boat over the''24,(100 mile mark,  and that does not include a few thousand miles of? automobiling which  might be thrown in-.. Mr. Daly was  very much pleased with the appearance of the works in Hedley. It is  not known whether he has declared  himself upon the question of power or-  indicated what his intentions are concerning it. He was here at a fortunate time when he had an opportunity  of witnessing the* effect which a night's  frost has upon the water supply at the  present low stage of-:'water.  >*K&K$K><&<h++  TIT-BITS FROM PENTICTON  The elections are over and in spite of  promises of Public Buildings and a  grant of five thousand to dredge the  Okanagan River (this by the way was  meant as a piece of sugar for Kelowna  rather than Penticton) Biu-i-cl has been  elected by a sweeping majority. This  with Goodeve's election in the Koot-  enay on top of the three conservatives  returned on the 26th October should  open the eyes of Sir Wilfrid to the  fact that there is such a place as British Columbia.  In Penticton both parties worked  hard, out of 166 voters 165 votes were  polled, 108 of these being for Martin  Buirell.  Looking into the committee rooms  while the returns were coming in it was  quite interesting to watch the fleeting  expressions on the. faces of the occupants In the conservative rooms  every one wore the. smile that won't  come off whilst the liberals had a hard  strained look about the eyes, now and  then one could see a gleam of hope as  the messenger arrived with another  bundle of returns, only to fade again  as the figures were read out and the  fact began to dawn on them that Ross  was going downtheline. " ���������;  .���������.I.hear that a .telegram was sent to  Duncan Ross conveying the following  sad intelligen ce, "Dredge sunk. Liberal party on board.; ;'���������' All hands lost."  By the way I went over to the  "Dredge" or rather I should say  "Drudge" camp this, morning all the  old reliables are to be found there.getting their share of the five thousand.  The third deputy assistant engineer  showed me round, and pointed out a  new bunk with, paper curtains on  made out of copies of the late member's  great speech on the Asiatic question.  This bunk I understand is being reserved for- Duncan, a message having  been received reading thus :���������If I cannot get something at Ottawa shall  want job on dredge, reserve a bunk.  The incorporation committee are  moving steadily ahead. Nearly all the  registered deed holders have signed  the petition for incorporation as a  rural municipality. The electrons fox-  reeve and councillors will likely take  place early in January.  The football match played here on  Siiturday between Siimmerland College and Penticton resulted in a win  for the College by one goal, the scores  being Summer-land College two goals  Penticton one.

THE  HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   NOVEMBER 26, 1908.  'HE DOLPHIN GROUP  lWork  to be Prosecuted on   this Very  Promising Property.  \ ,       (Spokesman Rcvic-yv)  The   Keremeos   Copper   company,  . owned by Spokane men, has just let a  contract foi-100 feet of tunnel to be  driven.ion one of its tln-ee claims, near  Kereineos iii the Similkameen. The  company,' which is headed by Dan  " Schult-/as president, has been developing the claims for; several yeavs, and  now has 1500 feet of development  done. Speaking of, the property,  Hem v M. Stack,, vice-president- said:  '���������We' have several good showings of  copper lire, and a. number of workings,  chief of which is a tunnel now. being  dj-iven on the Spar claim. This .funnel  is now. in 277 feet, and will have to be  driven about SO feet further to tap.' the  vein at 350 feet. The vein at the surface was crosscut aiid found to contain  14 feet of solid''ore. Assays were  taken! but-these were so various as not  to indicate tlie average values.; .While,  driving the t'innel'soveval stringers of  ���������high-gradeorewere-orieouiitered, which"  apparently ian-o("-from the. main body,  and indicate a. large deposit.  '*"There have been several tunnels  run on one of the other claims, from  three of which ore wa.s taken for shipment to the Norlhport smelter in January of this year. The- property, is  equipped with-an aerial tram, and  several upraises connecting the different levels give a good opening into the  mine and facilities for getting out ore  in small'-iiantities.  "The mine is about three miles from  the;V. V. ���������& E.';railway,-which' runs to  Keremeos. When the-western end of  the road is completed a spur will be  run to a point, much nearer the mine.  "Work svill commence as soon ...as-  some necessary supplies are sent in."  Tlie Family Tree..  A pleasant ��������� pastime,... literally, for  those-who have, no more pressing ;du-  ties and wish to get outside their environment at least in thought will open  up before her who begins to mount a  family tree. Tracing one's genealogy  may become���������probably- will become���������a  matter of absorbing amusement and  attention, for it entails a thread gathered up here, dropped there, a letter  to write, a book to read, a register to  consult. To the self absorbed, the  despondent, the listless, one may recommend this diversion as certain to  suit even rather morbid oonditions of  temperament, and yet as certain to  gently force the min'cl away from it-,  self to other persons and things in  opening up a wider aud wider field of  reflection.  Quaint  Prayers.  ��������� The chief of the Leslies is said to'  have prayed before a battle: "Be on  our side. An gin ye canna be on our  side, aye lay low a bit, an' ye'll see  thae carles get a-In'din' that must  please ye." An old covenanter, who  ruled his household with a rod of iron, .  is said to have praj-ed in all sincerity at family worship: "O Lord, hae  a care o' Rob, for he is on the great  deep, an' thou boldest it in the hollow  o' thy hand. An' hae a enre o' Jamie,  for he hae gone to'fight the-enemies  o' his country, .an' the. outcome o' the  battle is wi' thee. But ye need na  fash o' yerseP wi' wee Willy, for I hae  hiin here, an' I'm cawpable o' lookin'  after him mysel'."  HANDBOOK.  (Now Edition issued March, 100S.)  SIZE:   Octavo.  PACKS:   12i;S.
