v- . The Bishop of London) preach-
: irig at a service-recently in St. Paul's
to commemorate the jubilee of the
Church in British Columbia, told of
r the mighty future that awaited the
province. " Putting British. Columbia with North-West Canada,"
he said, " we are about to get, in
the next fifty or one hundred years,
one of the greatest nations that has
ever existed. When I think of
such a nation, with a population of
one. hundred millions, occupying
geographically such a commanding
posiition, I feel that upon its
character will depend the future of
the world. In the hands of its
people will rest the balance of
power in the world, and upon them
will depend, the Christianity and
the happiness of the world." Any
man, continued his lord? hip, who
did; not care whether that country,
with its vast population and almost
- unlimited resources, was British or
.,.- whether hvwas not British, who did
• !not care whether it was Christian
:> pr.noikChm
y.f small-'tbfbej :.sjhn^dv;l>y.; anything.
^'•Xq him personally,jne; contemplation <ft£tic\\-a .country; was' most
^entrancing.*; It;would b~e a cruel
;'" thing if ijt .we?e iiot British" i^v^y
nation inme^wbrld \vouTd 'give' its
right hand to possess a British
Columbia. The question was what
could be done to-- ensure that it
would be for ever both* Christian
and British. By contributing liber-
, ally to the. cost of the teological
college which it was proposed to
(establish in connection with the
University of British Columbia, it
was possible to aid in the training
of ministers who would preach the
lessons of Christianity throughout
' the' country, and if assistance were
given to the surplus population of
our great cities to emigrate to this
''Garden of" the World" it would
mean, not alone that British Columbia remained for ever British)
but the alleviation of the terrible
evil of overcrowding this country.
Passing to the work of the
Church, the bishop said that with
all its self-sacrifice and splendid
deeds, there was one thing the
Church of England had never
done—it had never been in time.
It wan not in rim«» in_the J2ast-cnd
of London. - Work in' that quarter I
had been rendered exceptionally
and unnecessarily difficult because
it came fifty years too late. In the
United States the Church was 170
years, too. late. The people ; of
British Columbia wanted to see the
Church firmly established in their
midst. Let it not be too late on
this occasion* V
For the purose of commemorating the jubilee of the Church in
British'Columbia it has been decided, if sufficient funds can be
raised, to establish a theological
college, to be affiliated to the
^-University . of the province. A
. meeting of the supporters of the
movement was held at the Mansion
House'. Alderman Sir Joseph
Savory, who presided, testified to
the interest which the City,of London took in the movement. The
Government of British Columbia,
he said, had set aside 2,000,000
acres as an endowment for the
University, and a site on this land
had been offered to the Church for
a college where students could be
trained for the ministry.
Mr. J. H. Tnrner. Agent-General
for British Columbia, spoke of the
rapid strides Which the: province
was.making, and of the necessity
for a college such as was proposed.
With but few exceptions, the people
of the country were all workers,
and unable to contribute the £30,-
000 that was required. They felt
confident, however, that once the
college was established they would
be able to maintain it.
A resolution urging that the
" self-denying efforts of the Church
in British Columbia should be
aided an i strengthened by an
organisation in England" was
moved by the Bishop of Kingston-
on-Thames, who pointed out that
the idea of starting the college was
to enable clergymen to be trained
in the country: in which they were
to perform their duties.

Annual Meeting of City
The annual meeting of the Kelowna City Band was held in Leq-
uime's hall on Friday evening last,
a good attendance of members
being present.
Mr D. W. Crowley, the president
of the band was in the chair, and
after the minutes of the previous
meeting had been read and adopted the secretary Mr Pettigrew read
the financial report for the year
which showed a balance of $16.28
in the bank.
Several of the members express-'
ed a wish to have a uniform for
the band, but as the council had
decided it was impossible to increase the grant to the band this
year it was considered^ that^. the
funds would not allow of a purchase: It was therefore decided to
take up a subscription around; town
in order to provide uniforms for
the members.   The election of of-
A Japanese man and two Japanese women were charged before
Mr. Burne yesterday with running
an immorafand disorderly house
in the direction of Chinatown.
The case was defended by Mr.
R. B. Kerr, who contended that the
man was -earning, a living by
working out on a ranche, and did
not make the house a means of
obtaining a living. Witnesses were I
brought to show thai this -j was the!
case, and the charge was dismissed.
A charge was next taken against
the wife. Several witnesses: were
brought, who stated they had paid
money to the defendant for immoral
purposes, and upon this evidence
the magistrate ruled that the woman
was guilty and inflicted a fine of
$25.00. The case against the other
woman was withdrawn. The
magistrate, sentencing, said he
would only inflict a light fine as
it was the first offense the defendant had been found guilty of, but
stated that the next time a conviction
was proved he would impose the
maximum penalty. A strict watch
would' be kept on the behavouir of
the parties concerned, as such,
conduct would not be allowed in
the city on any pretence whatever.

The pupils of the Black Mountain
School are having a series of interesting debates. On' Friday last the
subject was"Resolved that Queen
Elizabeth was justified in putting
Mary Queen of Scots to death."
The Misses Gladys Bird, Alda Mc
Donald, Hope. Goodrich, Joy
Fleming, Masters Arthur Gray and
Jimmy Baker took part in the dis-
dussiori. The able manner in
which the subject was handled,
showed not only the interest of the
pupils, but also that much thought
and study had been expended on
the preparations for the debate.
Mr. Dickerson took a wagon load
of Rutland heart-breakers for a
sleigh ride Tuesday evening in the
moonlight. Judging by the noise
they made they seemed to' be having a hot time down in the wagon
box.

and Mr. J. Sutherland, are to be the
Kelowna champions, and Dr. Baker,
and Chas. Mr. Leathley will look
after the interests of Rutland. The
subject is one of importance and
interest to every Canadain, viz:-
" Resolved that in the interests of

The High School Hockey team
went up to Vernon last Monday to
play the team at that point. The
game was played in the afternoon
but the Vernon boys terribly outclassed the team of youngsters that
left here, with the result that -they
went away losers by five goals to
three. At fivh o'clock the Kelowna
team drove down to Armstrong,
where they, again got beaten by
eight goals to three. Nevertheless
it was good going, and reflected
credit on our team, which
hampered by the previous,
what strenuous game against Vernon. The line up of the team
was as follows,: goal, A. Knight;
point, Jas. Copeland ; cov.-point,
C. Raymer; rover, Jas. Patterson;
right wing, H. Copeland ; left wing
F.Hillis; centre, Eslie Wilson. It
is possible that the 'Armstrong
boys will play the return match
next Saturday.
News   has just been
that Messrs. W. A. Scott
calf will visit this town
3rd, on which date a banquet
be held by The  members  of
Farmers' Institute.
Originally, the date fixed for their
visit, was the 2nd of March, but the
various arrangements in connection
with their tour has made it imperative for them to arrive here a
day later. The speakers will arrive
from Summerland on the morning's
boat, and will proceed to Mr. T.
G. Speer's orchard, where a practical demonstration of pruning and
spraying will be held in the orchard
at 10 o'clock.
The meeting "will be held in
Raymer's Hall at three o'clock in
the afternoon, when Mr. W. A.
Scott will "give an interesting talk
on his recent visit to the Old
Country in charge of the B.C. fruit
exhibit. The lecture will be looked
forward to with some interest by'
fruit growers here as, very fact that
ninety per cent, of the fruit ex-J
hibited last year in the Old Country
came from the Okanagan, will
fpractically/ show us with what high
'Standing the Okanagan fruit was
considered by those across the sea.
Mr.. Metcalf will r speak upon the
market conditions, and other facts
of interest to fyiit growers generally, and it is to be hoped that a
large number of those associated
with the fruit industry will be
present.
The banquet, which will be the
first one held in connection with
the Farmers' Institute, will be held
in Raymer's Hall at b o'clock. Invitations are being sent to Mr. Hoy
of Vernon; Mr. Hodson, of Victoria, secretary of Farmers' institutes
Mr. Maxwell Smith, editor of the
Fruit Magazine, who will probably
Have something to say about the
projected Canadian National Apple
show, and until lately provincial
fruit inspector; and Mr. Winslow
of Victoria. An invitation is also
extended to the City Council and
the members of the Board of
Trade.
The meeting promises to be one
of the greatest held here in the
interests of the fruit industry, and
will mark an epoch in the work of
the Karmers* Institute.
The second Women's Missionary
Society convention for the Okanagan district was held on February
16th in the Methodist church. Ten
visiting delegates were present
from points throughout the Valley,
also a large number of members of
the entertaining auxilliary and
others. Mrs. J. Conway, the district president, presided.
During the afternoon excellent
papers were read and discussed.
Amongst them were " Why some
women are not interested in Missions," " The necessity of the W.
M. S.," " The benefit of systematic
giving," and " The importance of
devotional life in auxilliary work."
Encouraging reports were given of
the work being done. Solos were
rendered by Mrs. Dilworth and
Mrs. Osterhout
Greetings were presented from
fhe Baptist Mission Circle by Mrs.
Welsh, and from the W. C. T. U.
by Mrs. Ball. Mrs. D. Watson, of
Summerland, was the newly appointed president. Tea was served

evening's entertainment . by a
chorus. A recitation was also
given by Vivian Jones. The address of the evening was given by']
the Rev. S. J. Thompson on " The
Missionary Problem," in which he
stated that the greatest problem of
the church today was to get every
person to take his share of the
work.
,: It was decided to hold the next
convention at Peachland during
thejall.

was
Lowell, the famous Martain expert
and director of the observatory of
Flagstaff, A. T., to Chicago astronomers as he passed through that
city the other day.
Professor Lowell announced that
he had seen a new canal spring into being last summer, showing, he
declared, that it had just been completed by the Martains. The water
had just been turned into it and
vegetation had just sprung up in a
hitherto uninhabitable part of the
great desert which comprises most
of the planet's surface.
Not only did he see the new canal, but he photographed it.   Previous photographs of this region,
made as late as last May, failed to
show any trace of the new canal.
The fact that it developed between '
May and September, when it was
first observed,    Professor Lowell
regarded as positive proof that it
was artificial, and. therefore that
living beings exist on the neighbor
planet. Professor Lowell conferred
with Professor S. W. Bumham of
Yerkes  observatory, to whom* he
made" the annnouncement    The
new canal is 1000 miles long; and
the: strip of vegetation on its banks
revealing its presence tct the eye

held  under the auspices   of the'Farmers   Institute
Hockey team.
It has been definitely announced
that the packing school will start
on the 7th of March, and consequently steps are being made to
have the arrangements completed
by this date.. The unexpected
change, in date has been made
necessary owing to Vernon having
decided to hold their packing
school from the 24th of February
to (he 5th of March, and directly
the school is finished there, Mr.
Berkeley, the tutor,: will make his
way here to start the school.
Up to the present , time, no
definite arrangements have been
made as to where the school will be
heid, but possibly The old Farmers'
Exchange building will be used for
the purpose. Failing this, Mr.
Raymer has made an offer of his
small hall for the occasion:
The apples will be supplied by
the government, while the fuel,
light and rent of the building will
be disbursed by the Farmers,
Institute. It is the endeavour of
the department to tutor those who
anticipate handling the packing of
this year's crop, and it is with 'that
aim that it is found necessary to
limit the classes'.
The attention of those desirous
of joining is called to the advertisement in this paper, which shows
who to approach in order Jo make
a formal entry before the school
starts. The school will last for two I
weeks, and will contribute five
hours daily, two and a half hours
in the morning and two and a
half hours in the afternoon.

Tomato Blight
(Dry Rot) Its Cause and Prevention.

This blight is common all over
the drv belt of British Columbia.
This dry rot attacks the fruit in all
stages of growth, from the time the
flower has dropped until they are
full grown Tomatoes that are
affected with dry rot ripen up two
to three weeks ahead of the others.
The rot when first seen js merely a
little dark brown coloring on the
bloom end of the fruit, which, by
the time the fruit is nearly full
grown, has covered all or nearly
all of tlv: bloom end.
I have come to the conclusion,
after fifteen years experience in
growing tomatoes, that dry rot is
caused by drouth or lack of sufficient . moisture when the fruit is
setting. The plant, suffering for
lack of water, ;oon becomes deplet-

K-.y are soon-'able to
ne die effects of the bacteria.
1 have seen large fields of tomatoes
in the early part of the season in
which nearly all the fruit was
affected with the rot, and any experienced person could see that
they were in need of water. In the
early fall we had good rains which
soon revived the plants, and inside
of a month no trace of the dry rot
■ could be found, but instead as
clean a lot of tomatoes as anyone
could wish to see.
In my experience tomatoes planted on good sandy loam should be
irrigated once a w. ek during the
hot growing season, or twice a
week on sandy soils. If .this is
done I feel sure no one will be
troubled with dry rot.
It has been found that heavy
application of fresh stable manure
appears to augment the injury.
This is ano'her point in favor of
my theory that drouth i3 the cause
of the rot, for it is well known that
stable manure is one of the worst
things that can be put on land
where water is apt to be short, for
the reason that it helps to loosen
up the soil, m;\king evaporation
more rapid, the soil therefore
becoming dry early in the season.
In conclusion I may say that I
have very little faith in spraying
with   Bordeaux   mixture   for   this
. blight, unless the suffering plants
are first given a good watering.
Then the vines could be sprayed
with Bordeaux if one wished to do
so, and good results could be expected.—Bj) TfaOid Gellqtly, in The

SUMMERLAND.
Part of the comedy, " Cinderella"
was enacted a couple of days ago
on Shaughnessy avenue. The
only variations from the time
honoured story are that the article
of footwear was a mocassin, and
the modern Cinderella must have
had a number nine foot, if the
'slipper" is supposed to be a fit.
The mocassin is at the hotel.
J. L. Berkeley, the packer, who
sent to Summerland to take charge
of the packing school, recently
held at that point, was presented
last Saturday with a token of the
high esteem which he was held
during his short visit. The present
consisted of a very neat morocco
leather dressing case, and a good
feature of it was that the brushes,
etc., could be lifted out entirely,
leaving it as a writing cabinet. On
a card with it was inscribed " Presented to J. L. Berkeley by the
members of the fruit packing clas^
Summerland, B.C., Febrvary 12,

Shingle Creek expects to have a
post office very shortly. The department has promised it anc:
necessary formallities have been
complied with. Mr. Armstrong
will be postmaster.
A despatch from Nelson states
that Capt. Gore, Supt. of C. P. R.
Navigation service will place a
steel hull steam tug, about the size
of the Hosmer, on Lake Okanagaii
and also that for the convenience
of hauling cars along the lake, a
new eight car barge is to be built.
In addition to this the present fleet
is to be overhauled and improved.
On the Arrow Lakes a new $65,000
steam ship is to be placed.
PENTICTON.
J. G. Fraser, of Fraser Bros,
canners of Kelowna, spent a da>
or two in Penticton this week. It is
understood that Mr. Fraser is taking
an interest in the Southern Okanagan Canning Co. of this place,
and that that institution will be in
operation during the coming season. A steam plant is to be put
in and the premises enlarged. Mr.
Fraser's practical experience will
no doubt be of great advantage to
the company, and the fruit and
tomato growers of this section will
have reason to rejoice.
Work on the government bridge
>ver the river at Penticton * has
.started, and before long the work
will have been completed. A
large quantity of lumber came
down the lake from Kelowna last
week, the sawmill making a special

PEACHLAND.
The presidents of the three
temperance organizations in town,
viz: The W.'C. T. U., Hotel Co.
and the Local Option League appeared before the Municipal
Council at its last sitting and presented a signed petition praying
the council to agree to grant to a
responsible man who would build
and conduct a suitable temperance
hotel here, free light and water,
and exemption from taxes for five
years. The Council expressed
themselves as favouring the scheme
and agreed to give the organizations six months in which to
secure a competent man to undertake the job.
The Methodists of Peachland
took the first degnite step towards
building a church when they bought
from the Townsite Company, two
lots on 4th strset recently. It is
their intention to proceed . immediately with building operations.
The present plan is to erect a
building 26x42 with basement.

THE BEST APPLES.
Work on the extension of the
Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern
railway will be begun this week
from both ends'of the line, from
Abbotsford on the west and Kere-
mos on the east, occording to the
statement of an official in Seattle
recently. Material for the construction and appliances have been furnished on the ground and constiuc-
tion will be rushed.
To the first 35 school girls applying to Knowles, the Jeweler
after one o'clock, Saturday the 26th
will be given free of charge, a

A   List   Which   Includes   Some   Old
Friends and teaves'Out Others.
The area of the world devoted to
apple-raising in the Northern Hemisphere extends from Scandinavia on
the north to the mountain region of
North Carolina and Tennessee on the
south. In the Southern Hemisphere
apples are raised in New Zealand and
Tasmania, but little success has been
obtained in Australia, Africa or South
America. >
North America is the great apple-
producing region of the world, and
New York leads all the other states
in the quantity grown, although varieties quite as choice are produced in
other states, particularly Missouri,
Oregon and Washington. To have perfect fruit, the soil and climate conditions must be of the most favorable
character.
A list of. what may be called the
best apples—best in one sense or another—has been arranged. It comprises these varieties: The Belmont,
Bethlemite, Bullock's Pippin, Cogswell, Early Joe, Esopus, Spitzenberg,
Full Wine, Garden Royal, Melon
Mother, Northern Spy, Pemmo Grise,
Porter, Primate, Red Canada, Summer Pearmain, Summer Rose, Swaar,
Wagener and Westfleld. To this list
are added the Baldwin and the Rhode
Island Greening — two of the best
known apples the country over.
Other popular apples include the
Gilliflower, Vandevere, Maiden's
Blush, American Beauty, Fameuse
Pound Sweet, Talman Sweet, Wine-
spice, Bellflower, Red Astrakhan,
Autumn Bough, Roxbury Russet, Sops
o' Wine, King, Twenty Ounce, Hub-
bardston and Peach Pond Sweet.
The pippin wherever found seems
to be always well liked. But one pippin differs from every other. What
one state knows as pippin, another
stpte greets by quite a different name.
The Ben Davis, for instance, so known
in the middle west, is known in New
York States as a New York pippin.
Almost every propagator of apples
has found, if his experience and his
orchards are extensive, specimens
which he thought entitled to such
names as Seek No Farther, Nonesuch
and Sine Qua Non, so that if one 'receives an apple bearing one of these
names in Massachusetts it may differ
exceedingly from one of the same
name offered to him in Wisconsin.
But they are all likely to be worth
the eating if their grower has seen fit
to honor them with such names.
-Many apples achieve an enviable local reputation, but do" not become
known outside a rather restricted territory, as they will not stand shipment. As an example, there is the
Primate, propagated and raised near
Syracuse, in New York. Those who
know it through finding it in its
home are its fond admirers. But it
cannot widen its acquaintance
through travel.
The most interesting achievement in
the producing of curious or interesting apples is to.be credited to Luther
Burbank, who has grown, quite by
intent and not through accident, an
apple one-half of which is yellow
and sour, and the other half red
and  sweet.
Naturally there "have been efforts
to produce seedless apples, but success has not, so far, attended them.
Some hold that the seedless apple
would be a mistake. There are many
who really like the pulp of the apple
seeds, and always include the eating
of them and the finishing part of an
apple.
The longer apples remain on the
tree, unless the weather becomes too
cold to permit their exposure, the
better the flavor and keeping qualities. The fruit that comes to perfection the-farthest north, as that in
the Hood River region of Oregon, appears to- have the finest keeping qualities, without deterioration in flavor.
Of the varieties raised in the east,
the winter russets keep longest without being put in cold storage, and
really reach the full perfection of
flavor only late in the winter or in the
early spring.' It used to be considered a marvelous and almost impossible
thing to keep apples over from the
fall till the first summer apples appeared, but with methods of cold storage so extensively used as they are
now this is easily achieved, and with
far less deterioration in flavor than
might be reasonably expected.
Many contrivances have, been tried
for the picking of apples, with the
hope of lessening the time and trouble
spent in picking them by hand, but bo
far the hand-picked apple iB the moat
satisfactory of the gathered fruit.
Careful handling, too, of apples is a
prime necessity in keeping apples at
their best, and the choicest varie-.
ties are wrapped in paper, and put
into boxes, instead of barrels, with
as much care as is bestowed upon the
packing of orangeB.

1881, and at the close of the latter year
was made lord of the treasury. . This
position he held until 1886. In 1892 Mr.
Gladstone was made Under-Secretary of
the home office, which place he^filled for
one year. From 1894 to 1895 he*was first
commissioner of works. The young man
became a power in the Liberal party, ascending in'the higher councils until 1899,
when he was made chief whip to that
political;faction. He remained prominent
in this place until 1906.

Young Artillery Officer-Was a Man of
Independent.. Fortune, But When
He Lost it He Returned to Police
Work and Has Pulled Off Some
Sensational Coups—Made First Big
Hit In  1903.   £
Froih farmer to detective is the unusual route by which Herr Wannowski, the German "Sherlock Holmes, *
has risen to fame. Herr Wannowski
is the brilliant young Berlin detective
who was chiefly responsible for unearthing the evidence on which the
great Kiel dockyard "graft" exposures
are based. It is due primarily to his
adroitness that the Imperial Admiralty has run to earth the ring of contractors and dockyard officials who are
alleged to have secured $2,250,000
worth of plunder during a period of
ten jjears.
Wannowski, the son of a Posen lawyer, was born at Danzig in 1870. After .passing the examination for one-
year volunteers and serving for a 12-
month in'the 18th Artillery; he became
an officer of the 35th Artillery, a rank
' which he still holds.       ,
■With a fortune inherited from his
father, Wannowski became a landed
proprietor in his native province of
Posen arid chose the' career of a gentleman farmer. Fate, however, seemed to decree that mysteries, not agriculture, were to be Wannowski's life
work, for his farming adventure was
not successful, and ih-1900 he arrived-
in Berlin intent on becoming a police
official.       f ' ' -        " ,
Wannowski Was assigned to the detective department, where he speedily
won the title of commissary. His first
great case was a mystifying railway
wreck in East Pcussia: in 1903. A passenger train had been derailed, three
persons killed, tfhd a score more or
less severely injured. The perpetrator
of the outrage—the rails had been de-
lib?rately torn up—could not be traced by the traffic authorities. Young
Wannowski was sent down from Berlin. By pure deduction Wannowski
decided that the derailment was the
work of a drunken man who did not
live more than three miles from the
railway line. Donning the garb of an
itinerant cyclist, Wannowski proceeded to canvass all the taverns in the
region for three miles on either bank
of the line. Within twenty-four hours
he had ferreted out the wrecker, a
miller who.had the week before unsuccessfully sued the Railway Administration, and in a fit of drunken desperation, had revenged himself by
wricking a'train.
Just before the Kiel revelations
Wannowski did a brilliant piece of
work in tracking the murderer Heider,
a.Burliri "apache," who enticed a Jewish" tailor's apprentice to his apartments, killed him and, after'mutilat-'
ing the body, hid the remains in the
Tiergarten .Park, The. trunk, arms,,
and legs wer-5 deposited in <>ne part of
the park, the head, cut and slashed

Yard, had with rare skill practically
recon3t ucted the head, Wannowski's
endeavors succeeded in identifying^the
youth on whose shoulders it had once
^re&ted. A    -''
Then began a long and heartbreaking search for the murderer.     After
spending ten days and nights in the
local "Whitechapel" district, the detective convinced himself that a certain Heider was the culprit.    A few
nights later Heider was  arrested by
Wannowski himself in a crowd watching the garrison church fire.   Heider
made a, full confession.
• A few months later Berlin was terrified by a series of mysterious "Ripper" attacks on girls and women.  For
weeks local womankind was in a state
of abject fear.   Ladies were afraid to-
be seen in the streets of even the most
fashionable 'residential districts,   and
mistresses   experienced t difficulty   in
getting   servants   to   visit' shops   in
Srpad    daylight.     Wannowski. was
tor *° • prominently identified with the com-
to find ' preljensive "drive" organized by the
police to wipe out "Ripper" attacks,
* which soon ceased after the arrest of
-a; uumber of low-class men and boys,
%6me of whom were caught in the act
... "stabbing girls of preparing to waylay'them.
"After   the    Admiralty    authorities
found themselves baffled in the at-
'. tempt to elicit the source of dockyard
■"grift" at Kiel, the services-of* Wannowski were requisitioned from Ber-
^ fin; The manner of-his assignment to
the case is interesting.   His superior
officers at Berlin sent him to Hamburg one night without orders, except
-to call next morning at the Hamburg
lG.P.0. for a letter which would con-
tain his instructions.   They were to
,'the effect that he was to "nose about"
'Hamburg among material contractors
and then proceed to Kjel, where he
was to worm himself into the confidence of suspected dockyard officials
and employes. The arrest and indictment   of   Messrs.   Frankenthal   and
Jacobsohn, dockyard officials Heinrich
and Chrunst, and their respective alleged accomplices in defrauding the
GotiernsYent speedily followed.   Wannowski is the crown's chief bulwark in

but his testimony has'not been undermined. The German . "Sherlock

has no detective schools and few

WHY DO WE DRINK?
Why do we drink? Because our bodies
are walking aquariums, and we have to
keep the protoplasm of our cells swimming
in water, or it won't live. So long as •we
drink only water, there is little danger of
our taking too much—except by drowning
ourselves ; but when we begin to mix tiling's
with it, trouble begins Certainly on general principles it would appear that the
simplest, cheapest, and mo:t rational thing
would be to take our necessary daily three
pints of water " straight," without mixture
of any sort—clear, fresh, and sparkling from
the spring; but for some strange reason,
man has never been satisfied to do this
but must add something to the water before
he will call it a drink. And he doesn't appear to have been particularly lucky in his
additions.
The first and commoriesf'addirion which
he has made to his drinking water has been
an unintentional one, sewage, which, though
it may give the special flavor that we so
much admire to the water of our own particular well, is neither appetizing nor
wholesome, especially when it contains
typhoid bacilli. Up to fifty years ago, ninety per cent., of civilized humanity drank,
more or less diluted, sewage, and it was
only recently that we discovered the damage that this innocent-looking mixture does,
and began breaking ourselves of the habit.
Man's earliest and commonest intentional addition to the water he drinks was also
the product of a germ — the toxim of the
yeast bacterium, alcohol. He could
hardly be considered ideally fortunate in
this addition either; for, although it gave
him a good deal more exhilaration and
enjoyment, it was always at a price, both
before and after taking. Just how heavy
a price, and by how many paid, we are
only beginning to discover and suspect.
Sewage probably kills many more than
alcohol, but there are other and crueler
penalties than death.
THE DRINK HABIT WHOLLY UNNATURAL.
A. large part of our drinking water has
always been taken in the form of mixtures
with other substances. These beverages are always much more expensive than
the plain water, often quite troublesome to
secure and prepare, have little or no food
value, are of doubtful effect in moderation,
and usually injurious in excess. Why they
should ever have come into such universal
use in all races and in all ages of the world,
is one of the standing puzzles of human
nature.
There  is,   moreover,  one most striking
and, from a biological point of view, most
significant fact, that eagerly as these
beverages have been consumed, anc3
constantly as they have been in use by the
race for from ten to tw nty centuries, wr
have never developed an instinct or natural appetite for them. No child ever yet has been
born with an appetite or instinctive liking
for beer or whisky; and a very few with a
real liking for the taste of tea or coffee,
although they soon learn to drink them for
the sake of the sugar and cream in them.
Thus nature has cleaily marked them off
from all the foods on our tables, showing
unmistakably that they are not essentia!
either to life or health ; and, what is even
more important from our point of view,
that they are absolutely unnecessary and
probably positively harmful, in childhood,
and during the period of growth.
It is much to be doubted whether an
appetite for alcohol would even develop
naturally later in life, if we were left entirely to our own devices. Certain it is
that the great majority of men have to
learn gradually, if not positively to teach
themselves, to like it, because they see
everybody else taking it, and think il
would be childish or unmany not to be
able to swallow, and at least pretend to
enjoy it themselves. If no child ever drank
alcohol until he really craved it, as he instinctively craves milk, sugar, meat, and
bread and butter, there would be extraordinarily few drunkards in the world.
Our other food-inticts have shown themselves worthy to. be trusted—why not
trust this one, and let alcohol absolutely
alone, at least until you have' reached full
maturity of mind and body, and acquired
the precious privilege of making a fool of
yourself if you wish ?
Czar's Life Continually In Danger—.
The„FUrsian Shah's Belief.
Wherever he is, wherever he goes,
the Czar of Russia is surrounded day
and night by police and troops or by
battleships and police patrols, says
an English writer.   <9?
Nor is the precaution unnecessary.
Without this strict guard his life
would not be worth an hour's purchase. There is always at least one
plot on foot for his assassination, and
numerous attempts upon his life have
been made. But so far the keen and
restless watch over him has been so
successful that he has never actually
come face to face with violence.
I It is for this reason perhaps that
, he has that personal fear of death
from which so many rulers are con-
i spicuously free. The German Em-
I peror, for example, goes about continually without any very effective
escort and has consequently looked
the would-be assassin in the face over
and over again. Whatever may be
his faults, the Kaiser has no lack of
personal courage.
But even his iron nerve may break
down on occasion. When he came to
England on the death of Queen Victoria a photographer managed to get
close to his carriage window, and the
loud click of the camera sounded so
like the cocking of a revolver that
the Kaiser for a moment changed
color.
One who saw the attempt made in
Paris on the life of the late Shah of
Persia says: "The would-be assassin
jumped upon the step of the Shah's
carriage and levelled a revolver
straight at the head of his victim,
pulling the trigger twice, but ineffectually. The Shah himself, looking
directly into the barrel of the weapon,
was the only spectator of the incident
who was wholly unaffected. As motionless as a graven image, the only
expression upon his face was one ,of
a slightly contemptuous amusement,
and when -his assailant was removed
he dismissed the ,% congratulations of
the officials with an airy #ave of the
hand, as though the matter were too
insignificant for notice."
Answering the more formal felicitations that followed later on, the Shah
remarked that if his death were not
ordained by fate he could not walk
unscathed among the united assassins of Europe, while if it were so
ordained all the soldiers in France
could not save him.

Never despair, friend I   Always remember
The  hour  that is darkest is nearest the
dawn;
By  the   great law of contrast the day will
seem brighter
From   darkness  and gloom of the night
that is gone.
Never despair I   for the lane that is longest
Will turn, and your weariness come to
an end:
And you shall be welcomed in Friendship's
dear hostel,
And   strengthened   and cheered by the
voice of a friend.
Never despair I   for the blacker the night is,
The brighter the stars that appear in the
sky;
It   is  only   in  sorrow  we  learn,  to our
comfort,
That  Friendship  is constant, and Love
cannot die.
Never  despair,   friend I    The   fiercer the
conflict,
The   fairer  the   laurels that wait you at

Take courage I   Fight bravely I  And think
of the crowning,

Subscriptions are being raised
placed a stained glass window
Westminster Abbey in memory
John Bunyan. The dean has placed
at the disposal of the executive committee one of the largest windows in
the north transept of the abbey, and
designs for the window have been
approved. The cost is placed at
$7,000, of which only half has  been
raised.
John Bunyan is read by millions of
people all over the world. One might
almost confine the statement to Canada. There are hundreds of thousands at all events here who have derived from Bunyan's great Dream
their finest lessons in literature, and
all that it implies. Many of the leading writers now rank Bunyan as the
greatest writer of English prose, his
strong, earnest simplicity, and dramatic imagination standing practically unrivalled.
Not In Love.
The cashier of a French hank enters the private office of the president nervous and agitated.
"Sir," he says, "I have something
on my mind which I feel myself compelled to disclose, though for months
I have striven to conceal it." The
president turns pale. "The fact is I
love your daughter!"
The president breathes more freely.
"Ah, you love my daughter I Do
you ever make any errors in your
books or in counting your cash, find
yourself abstracted, eh?"
"Never, sir," with pride.
"Then, sir, I must decline to encourage your suit. You are not really in love." |p

There was a chicken to-be killed for
Sunday dinner at the Cranes'. Mr.
Crane did not like to wring its neck;
likewise he shrank from using an axe.
. "I have it," he finally decided. "I'll
shoot it. 8o, armed with his trusty
gun, ne took the chicken to the woodshed. Little Robert, anxious to be in
at the death, followed. By and by
Robert's mother, hearing no sound,
stepped to the back porch and called,
"Robert, hasn't your father killed that
chicken yet?"
"No," Robert caUed back. "It won't
get in the way."

The favorite dish at Egyptian harem
feasts in a curious one. It appears to
be a lamb roasted whole, and it is,
but there is much more to it than
appears on the outside, for inside the
lamb isja turkey, and inside the turkey is a chicken; the chicken is stuffed with a pigeon, the pigeon with a
quail, and a becaflco, said to be the
smallest bird known, except the humming bird, is at the heart of this
curious roast.

Hon. Sidney Fisher Mat) Be Made
'S a Senator.
A well-defined "rumor is circulating in
the house concerning the political future of
the Hon. Sidney Fisher which bears the
imprint of probability. It is stated that in
a short dine the minister of agriculture
will be translated to the senate to fill the
vacancy from the eastern townships caused
by the death of Senator Baker. He will
assume the active government leadership
of the upper house, still retaining his portfolio of agriculture.
Nelson. Magistrate's Salary.
The Nelson.city council has.passed a
resolution'protesting, against the salary paid
to W. Irvine, the newly appointed police
magistrate. The former magistrate, E.
A. Crease, who is a barrister, started at $50
a month, and hi* 'salary was afterwards
raised to $70 a month. The new magistrate; who is not a lawyer, has been granted $80 to start with, and the council will
protest to the government that the amount
is excessive.

The freak~is a male child, bearing a striking resemblance to the generally accepted

throughout the country "are greatly stirred
up over the arrival of this" devil child, as
they call it, and see in. it an evil omen.
The child has two well-developed horns
protruding from its forehead, a tail growing out of the spine, and a full set of sharp
teeth, upper and lower. It is perfectly
healthy.

Drtjdoch Scheme.
There have been negotiations going on
for some time between interests desirous
of building dry docks in eastern Canada,
and. the government. Some time. ago a
company in which the C.P.R., the Allans,
and the Dominion line were interested,
asked the government for a, bonus of four
per cent, for 50 years on the cost of building dry docks at Levis and St. John, N.B.
The statutory allowance is now a bonus of
three per cent; for twenty years on a maximum expenditure of £1,500,000. In view
of (he fact that the size of vessels has increased, and the size and cost of dry docks
has correspondingly increased, it is understood that the government proposes to
bring in a bill to enlarge the statutory
allowance' for government dock aid to
three and a half per cent, for twenty£ve
years. It is understood that this aid will
result in the construction of. dry docks at
Levis- and probably at St. John and
Montreal.
G..P. R. Dioldends.
At a meeting of theTioard of the Canadian Pacific Railway company a dividend
of two per cent, on the preference stock
and three per cent, on the common stock
declared for the half year ending December last, payable first of April next, and it
was also decided that at the same time a
further turn equaPto one" half of one per
cent, be paid on the common stock out of
interest on the proceeds of land sales.
After the payment of working expenses,
fixed charges, and dividends now declared,
there is a surplus for the half year of
$10,611,917.      .      .
The East and the West.
The Hon. J. W. Longley, of Halifax,
spoke before the members of the Canadian
club recently on some of the national
proBiems of Canada. He did not agree
with thy policy of the easterners, who said:
" We will stop 'booming the west," in the
hope that the east would thus be benefitted.
Rather, he said, the maritime provinces
should develope their own resources.
Dropping the . commercial aspect, Judge
Longley spoke of other things than " those
which could be be weighed and measured
and put on o counter."
No Need for Free Seed This Year.
The statement has been authorized ■ that
the dominion government will not distribute seed grain this year, except to persons
living on unpatented lands, and who were
burned out by prairie fires in 1909. The
reason given is that there was practiclly no
frost last year, and that few settlers are
suffering.
Liability'.of Railway Companies.
A proposed amendment to the railway
act respecting the extension of railway companies in. case of cattle being killed owing
to the company's default was brought before the railway committee recently at
Ottawa. The resulting damages from this
nature of default on the part of the company is at present borne by railways only to
the extent of the loss or injury sustained by
reason of cattle being killed. From the
many other classes of damages that result
from the same negligence, the railways
have under recent.decisions of the courts
escaped liability. V
Lumber Retailers Refuse Odd
•. Lengths. .
When a standing vote was called for at
the convention of Western Retail Lumbermen's associations held at WinnipegXto
show those in fayor of theproposaf to- introduce "odd lengths" into the western
trade, the one man on his feet, who hap-'
pened to be . standing because he had no
seat, promptly sat on the floor for fear it
should be thought that he favored the
views of the British Columbia millmen.
The final resolution reflecting the temper
of the retailers )was introduced .by Mr. J.
D. Sinclair and seconded by Mr. Basley,
and was unanimously adopted: " That in
the opinion-of this meeting, after hearing
.the arguments on both sides, it is not to
the best interests of the lumber trade and
to its customers, the consumers, that the
short and odd lengths be shipped as proposed by the manufacturers."
Progress of Wireless System.
Signor Marconi states that he expects to
have his Glace Bay station open forixom-
mercial business for transmission across
the continent~shortly. For wireless messages to inland points it has'bee decided to
erect .a station at Winnipeg. Commercial
business will soon be established with the
new station in South Africa, of which Mr.
R. N. Vyvyan, formerly of^.the Glace Bay
station, is the resident manager.        ^ \
Orangemen Ask For Dreadnoughts.
At the annual meeting of the Orange
grand lodge in Kamloops last'week, a
resolution was unanimously passed calling
upon the Dominion government to finance
the construction. of two Dreadnoughts for
the British navy, and in the event of the
Dominion government refusing to do this,
bsking the provincial government to provide for the building of one Dreadnought.-
When the resolution was put and carried
delegates rose and started singing " Rule

Metres to be Introduced in Nelson's
Electric Light System.
Nelson is likely to lose the distinction it
has claimed as the best lighted city in
.Canada. In the past electric current has
been supplied to householders on a flat
rate basis. Plenty of current has beon
used in consequence, and the city has struck
visitors by its cheerful appearance. There
it unlimited water power, and Nelson has
just installed a new and costly power
plant, but an additional expence of $5000
is necessary for wire and transformers to
supply the demands on the service. To
avoid this the council has declared to
'abolish the flat rate system, and to instal
meters in every house at a cost to the city
of $15,000.
LOST GRACE OF THE CUPPER
Rake
Gone From  Mast  and  Ratlines
From. Rigging.
In general appearance sea craft are
much changed—it must be admitted
in some respects, not for the better.
Cargo steamers particularly have degenerated in outward form. They
are clumsier, morp angulaVless graceful than formerly.
One looks in vain for the clipper
bows, rakish masts and trim sails of
the early traders. The changes which
culminated-in the tramp of to-day
came gradually.
First, the masts, already reduced
in number, size and; importance by
the supersession of steam over sail
power, were stripped of yards and
square sails, and later the trysails in
some steamers, pit even a staysail
being carried.     *&■
Now, alas for sentiment, masts are
frequently fitted without ~ rake, and
gawky a ship so fitted looks alongside ihose of the older style. But a
raked mast is a bad derrick post, and
efficiency first, appearance last, is the
present rule.
Even standing rigging, with its convenient ratlines, beloved of the youthful mariners, is disappearing in favor
of the widely spaced guy ropes, a
prosaic iron ladder riveted to the mast
giving access, to the masthead. ?
In many vessels, too, forests of
derrick posts stand up awkwardly
-from the deck, making with derricks
and running gear, when seen on the
skyline, a most extraordinary show,
the ships looking for all the world
like floating factories-..'   ■'      >'
Outward appearance apart, how-
ever, change of .design has always
been in the direction of simplification
of parts, perfection of detail and general improvement.. Thus the standard,
of-comfort has been raised.; Forecastles are. not the poky holes they
"once were. The limit of deck space
per man is greater, the 'tween decks
loftier and light and ventilation improved.
Officers, too, are seldom now accommodated in the bridge 'tween
decks, with its close atmosphere and
passages smelling of the engine room,
but are housed on the upper bridge,
in roomy, central apartments, airy,
dry and convenient to the deck.
Bailed gangways now span the dangerous wells; bulwarks have been
raised and strengthened. The vulnerable machinery openings are protected with substantial castings, and
bridge fronts are strong enough to
defy the wildest seas. Thirty years
ago there was little science* and much
rule of thumb practiced in the designing offices of the shipyards. Not infrequently the model was made to
please the eye and the line plans
afterward drawn from it. No one can
defend this practice, although the
graceful forms of the clippers of that
day were thus evolved.   .
Before the Daphne disaster few private firms went the length of making
the stability investigations. What
were metacentres and centres of gravity? Vessels had been built since the
ark with little regard to such matters, and could still be built, so the
"clipper experts reasoned. Then came
the Daphne accident and changed
this. Stability became everything.—

Scavengers are underpaid, so are

^Horses cannot vote, neither can
women!
J£?Bu&. the council considers the
interests of horses, and women are
left to the mercy of chance.
A short while ago soma long-
bearded councillor was rightly
stricken with anguish because the
horses had ' no public place to
drink, arid so a fountain was built.
But damil, (as the Germans say),
what about a waiting-room for
women ?
»One would think there wasn't a
married man on the council, or a
single man either^for that matter.
Horses and women heeded no
protection societies in the age of
chivalry.
■opBut until we have a woman on
the council,"some such society for
women's interests as Mrs. Kerr
suggests, is sorely needed.
£!Or, the council might find one
of their number gallant enough to
form a committee by himself whose
sole work (outside of talking the
legs off the council table) would
be to represent the women. " Great

"Doctor," asked the patient, whose
eyes had been undergoing treatment
for a period of six months or more,
"do you think that my eyes are all
right nowP" , . .   .
S»Yes," said the oculist, "I think I
oan assure you, Mr. Pinchnickel, that
your eyes are cured. But there is one
more test I should like to apply. See
if you can read that at a distance of
twelve or fourteen inches without
blinking."

Market at Toulouse.
Around Toulouse, in France,, goosa
ranching is the peasant's great source
of wealth. Twice a-week to the goose
market are brought thousands of live
geese, so tat that they no longer try
to wad'dle, but just stand where they
are placed. Tim Toulouse goose is a
notable product of selection. Where
the ordinary domestic bird averages
9 pounds, that of the Toulouse varies
between 26 and 32 pounds, when scientifically fattened for their livers.
.-.. Livers weighing 4 1-2 pounds are not
particularly rare. The average liver
weighs under three pounds. The potting establishments of Toulouse and
Nerac pay peasants or geese speculators from 30 to 60 cents per pound for
these "foie-gras" (fat livers). In the
Toulouse market a live bird brings
from $3 to $4.50, while phenomenons
that weigh up to 35 pounds sell as
high as $6 to $7.
Up to its 18th month the goose lives
• free, jogging through the fields for
food. Fanciers, who go in for "magnificent pieces," products of intensive
fattening, let them run until they
reacli their second year. Then cornes
the great change in the goose's life
and he or she, who roamed at leisure,
is suddenly cooped up in a cage so
narrow that there is not.room to turn.
The floor is strewn thick with straw
so that the bird sinks into it up to its
breast. It is warm,,dark and silent.
Should the faintest cackling from the
barn reach its ears its spirit would be
troubled against fattening to the highest point. ...
In feeding, the farmer takes the
goose between his knees, forces its
beak open with a funnel, and pours in'
a lot of Indian corn. It is like loading and ramming a gun. Three times
a day the farmer loads the bird. A
goose can digest over a quart of corn
a day?during five weeks. Some digest
50 quarts ip 35 days. The corn is not
soaked, but, to facilitate digestion, a
little water is given. Some add salt
and cornmeal; others give soup, milk',
and even a little ammonia. Sulphite
of antimony helps to fatten," but is
only used by experts, being dangerous.
During this time the bird scarcely
moves; every child knows when the
fattening is finished. The tail spreads
like a fan, the feathers no longer
touch each other; it is time to sell
the goose for its liver. It is a vastly
over-grown liver, but that is all right.
An Australian  Fairy.
It is on account of her bewitching
dancing that Saharet, whose wonderful performance at the London Coliseum has created such a stir, has
been so termed. Saharet is of Australian birth and English parentage,
and is generally conceded to be the
finest acrobatic and Spanish dancer
on the stage. Curiously enough, no
one taught her how to dance, and all
she knows of the art is the result of
her own efforts" She trained herself
by creating wonderful spirited movements, with the aid of a barrel-organ
as au accompaniment, and when that
was wanting she sang to herself a
suitable tune. She has traveled all
over the world, and considers that
the greatest compliment ever paid to
her was* that of a Frenchman, who
said she was exactly like the Empress Josephine in the latter's younger
days. "Ah, but if I had been Josephine," said Saharet, laughingly,
"Napoleon would never have left me
for Marie Louise, and then—who
knows?—he might not have had to go
to St. Helena after all."
Pretty  Bad  Writing.
Rufus Choate is said to have been
as bad a writer as Horace Greeley.
A new house of Mr. Choate's being
under construction, he had arranged
to obtain designs for an ornamental
chimney piece from.a certain quarter.
There was a long delay, but at last
there came &. letter irom Choate
which was5 really an intimation that
he had been unable so far to obtain
those designs; .But-the workmen at
once began to construct the chimney
piece. Choate's letter had been understood as a sketch of it
Parallel with this is Ihe legend that
one of Napoleon's letters home from
Poland was interpreted as a sketch
map of the field of the campaign.
Swallowed His Model.
; "Object'' drawing has, brought a
new anxiety into the schools. In certain districts youngsters may be seen
, moving ischoolward with hatchets,
carvers, hammers, chisels, etc., as material for their.drawing lessons. The
other day, just as one of these lessons
was about to begin, a small boy was
found standing tearfully at the Headmaster's desk.
"I've swallowed my object," he explained, with an alarming gulp.
"What was it?" asked the master
anxiously.
. ^ "A banana," replied the would be
'artist,   with   a   final   gulp.—London
Fun.
Encouragement.
"Why don't you offer your heart
and hand?"
"I fear she would turn me down."
"I don't believe it. Bhe has given
ypu enough encouragement."
"Why, Bhe never gave me the
slightest encouragement."
"Get out! I heard her telling you
yesterday that her mother did not allow her to. accept anything of value
from young men."      **
Teaching Baby to Walk.
Never encourage a baby to try to
walk if he seems unwilling to learn.
The sockets of the joints are very
shallow• in tiny children and the
bones so feebly connected that they
are easily dislocated. Besides, bowed
legs are very much easier to avoid
than to cure, and standing before
the- legs are strong enough to bear
the weight of the body may result in
permanent deformity.
Word Cures.
Curing by "words" was common In
the early ages. They cast out the
disease spirits by exorcism. Ulysses,
mythology has it, stopped a hemorrhage by words, styptic wordB evidently. Cato cured sprains by the
same means.

Mr. Millie had a " close shave "
last week from getting his house
on fife. "Even as jit was quite a
little, damage was done. It appears
that- having previously stdked up
the~kitchen range, he went to bed,
only to wake up a few. hours later
to find the room he was sleeping
in full of smoke. He immediately
went down to the kitchen, and
found that the front of the stove
had blown open and some of the
red. hot coals had fallen out on to
the oilcloth, burning a hole completely through the floor. A good
little blaze underneath the building
had just started. It was only* a
lucky chance that the smoke reached the upper/part of the building
and gave the alarm; otherwise the
inmates of the house might have
beenjinable to escape, and a serious
fire resulted.

FRAUD ORDERS.
The Way Our Po*toffice Inspector*
Protect the Public.
Wben a person <w firm that Is un-
knowi! to the postofflce inspectors begins to receive large quantities of letters the inspectors begin to investl-
CMte They visit the office of the concern mid learn what they can. if it is
n legitimate and honest business It is
not interfered with. But If it looks
••slmdy," If it happens to be a mining
or land scheme that offers large re-
turns upon the investment of money,
the Inspectors abstract a dozen or so
of the Incoming letters from the mall,
got the names and addresses of the
writers and then reseal the letters and
permit them to be delivered.
The next move for the inspectors Is
to visit the persons whose names and
addresses were taken from the letters
and to get from them the correspondence of the supposed fraudulent concern. With this the Inspectors "make"
n ense and either cause the arrest of
the dishonest persons or cause a
"frnud order" to be issued against It.
A "fraud order" is simply an order
made by the postal authorities at
Washington declaring that such a
business Is fraudulent and warning
the public against sending money to
it. After that each letter coming addressed to that concern is stamped
•tfrtiud" In red ink across its face and
returned to the sender.
Thousands of schemes 'for defrauding the public has been stopped by the

moumueut to hlm.s He was out tending sbeep, and, the sun smiting down
bard, be went into a cavern to eat bis
cheese and rye bread. He failed to get
away witb all of it and threw, a hunk
ot the cheese off to one side. It happened to drop on a natural shelf, and
u few months later the boy found
tbe cbeese still there. He saw that It
bud undergone a constitutional change,
for instead of being dry and bard it
was moist and creamy. Besides, there
were veins of greenish mold running
through it. The boy took a nip. and
t he taste was so pleasing be carried a
crumb home to his*mother. She must
have been a woman of intelligence,
tor no sooner bad she tasted than she
took one ot tbe largest rolls of cheese
trom her dairy, bad her son guide her
to the cavern and placed It on the
shell. .In due time tbe same change
was wrought, and Roquefort cheese
bad arrived as an article of com;
merce. All tbe natural caverns around
the quaint old town now are used for
ripening cheese, and the women work
in them witb small oil lamps strapped
around their chests.       j

To my Debtors
,Dear Sir or Madam, ■
I wish to inform you that ITiave taken
over the livery business cf Mr. Cal. Blackwood, and would put my name before you
in the hope that you will remember me
should you have any business in my line,
either Livery, Feed, or Draying. At the
same time 1 will run a series of Auction
Sales, every other week, and will endeavour
to do my best for you should you have any
property to dispose of.
You will understand that the purchase
of such a first class business as that which
was untill lately, owned by Mr. Blackwood'
has necessitated the sinking of a large portion of-my capita), in stock, and other necessaries, and I am now obliged to ask my
various debtors to give me a helping hand.
I have always been willing to extend
credit to the full extent of my ability, and
will continue to do so, but the cost of
rendering an accountjrnonth after month is
very great, more especially when it is dealing with a business which has since been
handed over to another firm, and from
which I derive no benefits.' *'.
To put il bluntly, 1 am now desirous of
closing up all my old outstanding accounts
and would-ask all who owe me money to
make a prompt senttlement either by cash
or note as per statement already rendered
. them, as failing' to hear in the next few
days, I shall be forced to draw on them at
j sight. Accounts can be paid either by
mail or at the livery barn;
Yours very truly,       -
