Artificial Rain
Mr. Clement Vacher returned
last Thursday from a trip to his
native France. Mr. Vacher is the
inventor of an improved nozzle or
spray irrigation system, and it is in
connection with this invention that
the journey to France was made.
It has been a most successful visit,
and several of the large cities of
of France have taken up the system after a most exhaustive test,
for use in their public parks. A
large French engineering firm have
undertaken the __ manufacture \ and
sale of the nozzles in France, Italy
and Spain. Mr. Vacher is reserving
for himself the agency for the
Pacific coast, and some of the
western states.
The new nozzle has the power
to throw and evenly distribute
water over an area many times
greater than any at present existing
and makes practicable a more
natural system of irrigating, namely,1
" artificial rain."
A farewell dance was give last
Tuesday evening in the Opera
House to Mrs Dorothy Lamb, who

Lamb the dramatic society are losing a decided acquisition, her fine

production of the "Mikado" in
N which she took the part of Katisha.

The following is clipped from
the Calgary Herald pf, last week.
Rev. Dr. Herdman was a brother
o^Re^ A^WvK.- Herdm__tr xKel-
"Rev. J. C. Herdman D.D., formerly pastor _.of Knox church and
latterly superintendent of Presbyterian missions, died last night, aged
54 years. He is survived by Mrs.
Herdman and a family of two sons
and a daughter who will have the
sympathy of a very large circle of
friends throughout the entire west:
The late Dr. Herdman was born
in Pictou, N.S., and his educational
course was varied and brilliant. He
came to Calgary as pastor of Knox
church in 1885, and he was a man
after the hearts of the people of
the west. His life and teaching
was one of tolerance and broad
minded Christianity. He had hundreds of friends outside of those
for whom he specially ministered.
Hid fitness for the position of superintendent of missions was recognized by his church and he entered
upon the work with a zeal which
was more than his health could
stand, and for some time he had
been out of active work."

per case, on the four carloads.
Freight rates from Mission 53 cents
per 100 lbs. Freight rate from

the lower Mainland, B. G, arrived
in fair condition, but poorly graded
and packed, somewhat green and

extent, interfering with the sale of
our fruit products from the fact of
our fruit being later in ripening
and shipping, it will be further
necessary for our growers and
shippers to use the greatest care in
putting up their fruits in every
respect, as the better product will
find a readier sale and at a higher
price . The marked agressiveness
of Ontario and American shippers
this season in pushing the sale cf
their fruit products throughout
these provinces will necessitate you
as glowers and shippers of being
even more so, by all legitimate

R. Thompson, manager of St.
Catherines Cold Storage Co., has
been here at Winnipeg and completed arrangements with the McNaughton Fruit Exchange to sell
their fruit this season.' The following is a copy of a report, or circular, received from the St.' Catherines Cold Storage Co., St.-
Catherines, Ontario, by the McNaughton Fruit Exchange, of
Winnipeg. ■'•■'.
'*' The danger from frost is now
over in the Niagara Peninsular and
prospects are now for a fair crop.
Strawberries are coming along and
promise a full' crop. Sweet cherries
full crop, soup cherries a medium
crop, European varieties in plums
look well and will be better than
last season, pears have set well,
peaches promise a full crop,
grapes will be a medium crop of
very fine quality all fruit will be a
little earlier than last season.
The company shipped over 100
cars to Winnipeg in 1900 and will

their pears, peaches and tomatoes
in the Western packages and use
the same methods. The Winnipeg
people can look forward to getting
a good sample of Ontario fruit
from this well known company."
This company ships all fruit by
freight in carloads by Grand Trunk
and across Lake, than via Milwaukee, St. Paul to Winnipeg,
avoiding Chicago with its congested yards and delay there, cars
4J days in transit. They pre-cool
all fruit and ship in iced cars.
The following is an extract in
part of a letter dated May 14 from
a North Yakima grower and shipper
giving estimates in carloads of
different varieties of fruit at that
point this season, and received by
one of the jobbers here, was handed me to read:
Peaches, 200 carloads
Pears, 300 carloads
Prunes, 200 carloads
Apples, 2,000 carloads
He reported prospects for every
heavy crop. Idaho also reports
the same.
Allowing for over estimation
from present reports the indications
are for a good crop, and it will be
necessary for our shippers to get
their quotations into the hands of
wholesalers and retailers, giving
quantities, varieties and date of
their being ready for shipment, for
the purpose of inducing dealers
here to wait until our fruit comes
in. There is a danger that these
markets may be glutted to some
The Wide Tire Act
The wide tire act seems likely to
work some hardship in the interior
of the province. Reports from
many places state that there is the
greatest difficulty in obtaining
supplies due to teams being held
up for not complying with the new
regulations. The act was gazetted
some months ago, but little heed
was given.
As instance ofthe action which
is being taken in various places,
the following telegram was sent by
A. W. Cameron,- president of the
Quesnel Board of Trade, to the
" A meeting of the business nten
of Quesnel to discuss freight congestion at Ashcroft resolved to request you to instruct your offioers
not to enforce the Wide Tire Act
on the Cariboo road. The situation
is very serious; all kinds of supplies are running short.. We are
advised to-day by Bailey, forwarding agent at Ashcroft, that merchants are being advised to stop buying goods, as it is impossible to
forward them, if the Wide Tire
Act is enforced. A reply is requested immediately."
The reply was to the effect that
the teams already on the road
would riot be stopped en route;
that ample notice had been given
the teamsters, and that the act
could not be suspended.
It is the honest hope of all that
the government be lenient in this
crisis and permit supplies to come
in, as the consequences of a continuance of the present congestion
will work'an enormous harm upon
this new country just coming to
its own. The matter of cutting a
bit of the red tape at Victoria seems
at this time an easy and most important Consideration, notwithstanding that all good and common
sense laws should be enforced and
the teamsters have by their neglect
placed themselves and the in^
habitants ot the interior in a de-

Vernon; Nelson and Creston are
the principal centres, and all report
prospects good. Cherries (sweet)

The Rev. H. P. Thorpe has resigned his pastorate of Salmon Arm
Baptist Church, and the resignation
has called forth the publication of
a rather remarkable letter from the
church clerk, who writes on behalf
of the church. The letter is highly

much appreciation of the work of
Mr. Thorpe in Salmon Arm, but
says the writer, " a combination of
circumstances has caused Mr.
Thorpe to decide that his ministry

Four Young Englishmen and One
Young Woman Dress Up as Blood
Relatives of the Late King Mene-
iik and Are Shown Every Courtesy
Usually Extended to Visiting royalty—Costumes a' Work of Art.
Five young men and one young
woman, all of them extremely well
connected, and all of them, well-to-do,
have perpetrated a most amazing arid
somewhat reprehensible practical
joke on the Admiralty, the British
navy, and H.M.S. Dreadnought in
It is a joke of such colossal proportions, so audacious—Theodore
Hook, that master of practical jokes,
might himself have been proud of it
—that it is a little hard to put it in a
Briefly, however, it may be said
that on a recent day three of the
young men and the . girl, fully disguised as Abyssinian princes, traveled down to Portland, and were there
received with princely honors on
board the flagship. The two other
young men played the parts respectively *>f attache to the Foreign Office
and interpreter.
From start to finish they were
forty minutes'on board H.M.S. Dreadnought, and from the point of view
of the perpetrators of the joke, the
escapade was entirely successful. In
fact, on the following d*y. the battle-
ship in question put to sea without
one single officer or man • on board
being aware of the manner in which
they had been hoaxed.
That the matter could have remained a secret forever was. of course,
impossible, as the practical jokers
used certain means of carrying
through their jest which caused instant inquiry on the part of the Foreign Office. These inquiries were so
pertmont that the majority of the
young men sought seclusion, but one
of them, bolder than the rest, remained in London to tell the tale.
The ndventure had been brewing
for some time, but the exact lines
upon which the joke was to be worked were not mapped out till about a
fortnight previous to its operation.
Then the commander-in-chief of the
enterpri..y hied himself to an entirely
innocent and unsuspecting costumier
of world-wide, renown, and requested
him to furnish make-up for.four Abyssinian princes. Expense api;.*ared to
have been of no account, arid the
ringleader actually took to the costumier books showing exactly what
the princis should wear. Of course,
they coi'ld have been fitted out in
rough-and-ready fashion at an instant's notice, but this was not in the
least the idea of this latest follower
of "Captain Koepenick." He demanded accuracy of detail, and so some
days had to be spent in procuring a
rigidly correct make-up.
Indeed, so reckless was he as to
what the adventure might cost that
he one day rushed out ofthe shop
declaring that mock jewels were of
no value, and r-.nurned half an hour
later with $2,500 worth or so of pre:
cious stones purchased from a neighl-
boring jeweller. ~ ;<
The make-up when complete was
certainly striking. The three young
men and the young woman all had
their hair cut short, and were fitted
with black woolly mats which conK
pletely covered their skulls. They
were all provided with short, crisp,
curly black beards and the most complete sets of nigger lips. Their faces,
arms, and hands were dyed to the
proper hue. They wore turbans and
flowing robes. Round the neck of
each, suspended by a gold chain, was
an early Christian cross. Their persons fairly glittered with costly
jewels. '
But .even in this ''make-up" the
humor of the instigator of the plot
struck a dominant note. The-Abyssinian princes were all furnished
with enormously long, pointed, elastic-sided patenWeather boots. The
princes were indeed a glorious sight.
The man who was to pass as the
interpreter—supposedly a German-
looked his part. The dress of the
Foreign Office attache was, of course,
an easy matter to furnish.
On the day selected for the raid on
Portland all the conspirators were so
anxious that their appearances should
present no blemish that they arrived
at the costumier's at six o'clock in
the morning, and were not satisfied
with their Abyssinian toilets until
after noon had struck.
Then, unfortunately, they allowed
their determination and the exuberance of their spirits slightly to outrun
their judgment, and the following
telegram was despatched to the Oom-
mander-in-Chief of the Home Fleet at
"Prince Makalin and suite will arrive at Weymouth at 4.20. Kindly
make all arrangements to receive
them." <%
This telegram, it must regretfully
be said, bore the name of a high official whose lightest wishes were likely to be received with respect.
And so it was that the "princely"
visitors were received on board the
flagship, and marines presented arms
as "Prince Makalin" and hia gorgeous suite stepped over the side.
Here it may be mentioned that all
the "princes" bore names which had
been specially invented for the ooca-
sion on the journey down from London; the name chosen for the lady,
waa "Prinoe Mendax."
Still, no one suspected even the
mendacious Mendax.
With characteristic hospitality, the
officers of the battleship strove their
utmost to shower honors and attentions on their guests. There was unfortunately tio Abyssinian flag on
board, so, as a makeshift, the flag of
Zanzibar was hoisted to the main-
must. .(Tnluckily. too, the National
;Anthem of Abyssinia could not be
idiscovered among the music. Again
iZanzib. r wns brought tp the rescue,
. and the National Anthem of that state
fM rendered  quite  efficiently/ con
sidering the  short  notice   the   band
had received.
The attache from the Forfiprn Offiep
was charming, and his'-explanations
were complete.. He tohl,what pleasurr
it would give the "prince?" to see
over the warship, nnd informed one'
of the officers that the "princes" vv.r.
on a visit to England in order to
make arrangements for sending their
sons and nephews to school at Eton.
So the "princes" were shown
everything—the wireless", the guns,
and the torpedoes, and at every fresh
sight they murmured in chorus,
"Bunga bunga," which, being interpreted, means "Isn't it lovely?" That
is to say, three of the "princes" did,
but the fourth "prince," being afraid
to reveal her naturally treble voice,
assumed a cold, and murmured,
"Chuch-a-choi, ' chu'ek-a-choi," by
which she intended to convey her
great appreciation of her surroundings. #
After the inspection of the ship a
grave peril for a few moments confronted the conspirators. They were
asked to take tea. but this was not
to be thought of,va_ it would certainly have ended in the "princes' " false
lips becoming detached. "Prince
Makalin," apparently overcome by
the hospitality which had been shown
him, desired to present an officer with
the Grand Dross of Abyssinia. The
officer regretfully explained that he
could not receive the Order. No one
apparently stopped to ask whether
there were Grand Crosses in Abyssinia.
Then the "princes" left. They
were delighted, and the officers were
delighted,, too. It was altogether a
most pleasant afternoon.
They  Ease the  Mind  of the  Mart  ol
Moderate  Means.
"All things," said the man of moderate means, "impress us by comparison. If a man had lived all his life
in a palace, why, then it would have
to be a very grand sort of place indeed
that would.seem anything particularly fine to him, whereas if one had always lived- in a shack a very modest
house would seem to him luxurious.
"If since autos first came in we had
been driving steadily a $10,000 automobile, then obviously it would take
quite considerable of a kerosene cart
to give us any added joy in that line,
while if we had been accustomed constantly to ride in the street cars, why,
then the simplest bf gasoline gigs
might give us great glee. All things
go by comparison.
"Take, for instance, smoking. My
regular smoke is a stogy that costs
$1.45 a hundrbd, but I buy also for
special occasions a special brand of
cigar for which-1 pay $2 a hundred.
I buy a fifty box at a time for a
dollar. Commonly I smoke the stogies, and I think they're pretty good,
at a little less than a cent and a half
a smoke, but if I happen to strike a
little streak of luck, why, I then blow
myself to a couple of those choice
smokes out of the other box, in which
really I find great pleasure.
"It's all by comparison. Some men
would have to pay $10 for a cigar to
get any fun out of it. I can get a lot
of fun out of a two center.
"And, speaking of great pleasure,
I m glad I have not exhausted all my
great pleasures. I've still got them
all, or most all, to enjoy. My capacity
for novelty and enjoyment has never
been much taxed.' It is still-practically boundless. I have got life ahead
of me, not behind, and when I do get
money, as I certainly hope to do some
day, why, everything will be new and"
charming to me, and. I shall enjoy
everything and all immensely.
"I've got something to look forward
to anyway, and I think there's something in that."

his best friend, coming upon him in

A Poultry Garden
One of the most valuable assets
. of the hen yard is the fertilizer
produced; no one who throws
this away can hope to succeed.
This guano is worth $3 per barrel.
What business could afford to
through away such a by-product ?
A combination of small fruits
or truck and poultry is ideal, and
the only way one can make the
fullest use of the products of the
To utilize the manure it is only
necessary to have a few barrels—
whisky barrels are best—and bore
about two hundred small holes
around the sides in rows. Then
fill this with soil and the guano,
and in each of the holes place a
strawberry plant. As you fill up
the barrel gradually to the top,
place a small hollow tile vertically
in the barrel so that the top of the
tile just comes to the top of the
barrel; then water through the tile
every other day, filling the tile with
water. In this way two hundred
plants can be raised on space that
would take care of but five plants.
Another way is to use tomatoes
instead of strawberries. Fewer
holes would be necessary and it
would be further necessary to
prune the vines quite closely as
they grow. The guano should also be used in hotbeds in early
spring. In fact, it should go very
far toward supplying the fowls with
The yards soon become foul from
droppings. The ordinary poultry
keeper grows despondent at 'the
losses through disease from this
filth. The proper way should be
to make a frame about six inches
or more high and cover with wire
netting. Under this frame cover
the ground completely with wheat
or oats and then cover with a thin
layer of soil. Water this daily and
a very thick sod will spring up and
the wheat or oats will grow up
through the wire to feed the
chickens. They will eat it as fast
as it grows high enough to reach,
but will not scratch the roots up.
When the soil is thus purified
place the frame elsewhere in the
yard and repeat the operation till
the whole yard is purified, and then
keep on doing the same thing over
again. Thus the great value of the
guano is made an asset, whilst the
average poultryman makes it a
source of contagion. This little
plan will furnish green food perpetually.
The selling of eggs for sitting
should be counted in as part of a
utility plant; it would be madness
for any poultryman to breed from
anything but pure bred stock.
There is a demand for eggs from
such stock which will advertise
itself, and no breeder would be
wise to breed from mongrels when
there is a demand for eggs at fiom
50c. up to $30 per sitting for eggs
from pure bred stock.
Poultry raising goes naturally
with large and small fruits. Each
needs the other, and fancy breeding is also a part, for no one would
buy eggs from the finest mongrels
at anything more than say five
cents above market price.
The Pringle Stock Company will
open a short season at the Opera
House on Monday, June 20th. This
excellent organization is the oldest

date comedies and dramas. There
are no long waits between the acts
as they will introduce high-class
vaudeville, thus making the performance continuous.
The opening play will be the
five act comedy drama, "Woman

inducement for the opening night
purchasers of a reserve seat will
be allowed to reserve a seat for
one lady free. This is done for

In Indianapolis they tell a story of a certain attorney to explain why he quit drink-
so suddenly, He had patronized one saloon with great liberality for years. Lately
the proprietor of the place bought a house
and lot and he employed another lawyer
to examine the abstract for him.
The steady patron when he heard it,
went after the saloon keeper roughshod, demanding to know business favors weren't
exchanged when there was an opportunity.
Why did the saloon keeper turn away from
his own customer and give business to a
man who never bought anything of him—
nor of any other saloon keeper?
The saloon keeper was amazed at the
complaint; he thought the explanation ought
to be plain enough. "When I've got business," he said with childlike frankness, " I
want it done by a sober lawyer.''
Suddenly the attorney too concluded it
was all plain enough : his friends say that
he hasn't touched liquor since.—The Interior.

The Attorney-General's Department of
Manitoba has published a pamphlet giving
the particulars of recent legislation bearing
on the protection of neglected and delinquent children. Much ignorance on this
point has been shown in •other provinces,

to them all.
A white-slave traffic organization has
been unearthed in northern Minnesota, revealing the danger of the Canadian girls in
the border country. The leader, who has
been arrested, has been inthe habit of luring girls from this side on promise of employment, dodging the immigration officials
and disposing of them to houses of ill-fame
for $300 per head. Books were kept and
orders taken in this nefarious treffic.
Mr. Thomas O'Connell, special Dominion
Indian Officer for British Columbia, is authority for the statement that the Indians
of that province are becoming more temperate. "The leaning toward temperance
has been very marked in the last three
years, an indication that the advice of the
agents and the missionaries is beginning to
have effect. In the olden days it was nothing unusual to see 200 and 300 cases of
convictions among Indians for drunkenness
during a fishing season at Steveston. Last
fishing season only seven Indians were convicted of drinking at Steveston.

A Gallant Record.
Roar-Admiral A. A. 0. Galloway has
a \v< .iderful record of gallantry in attempting the saving of life at sea. He
began this part of his career when he
was'a midshipman, in 1873. In Gibraltar Bay a seaman attempted suicide. It Was at night, but Mr. Galloway went overboard at once, and saved the man, in spite of his struggles.
For this he received the Royal Humane Society's medal. Five years later, again at night, Mr. Galloway
sprang from the Pallas, at Port Said,
to save a stoker who was swimming to
the ship, and was drowning. In 1882
he, with a boat's crew of volunteers,
went off from the Warrior, in the Bay
of Biscay, during a heavy gale, to
pick up a man who had fallen from
another ship. On this occasion the
Duke of Edinburgh, in a general signal, thanked him for his service.

The  Sentry's  Error.
An officer tells this good story:
"A French sentinel iu Algeria had
for colonel a very tall, lanky, round-
shouldered man.
"This round-shouldered colonel one
night was making a quiet inspection.
Passing tlie sentinel, he found, to his
rnge and indignation, that he was not
challenged. So he returned to the man
and roared:
" 'You didn't challenge me!'
" 'N-no, sir," faltered tbe sentinel,
" 'Well, why didn't you?' the colonel
" 'Excuse me, sir,' said the sentinel,
'but I thought—I beg your pardon,
sir—I thought you was a camel'."
Her Great Question.
This desire to uplift the sisterbood
has. many drawbacks and discouragements. Mrs. Lysander John Appleton
! recently conducted such a meeting.
j She spoke of the blind groping of her
! sisters for higher ideals and the trou-
j bled- questions that obtruded them-
i selves upon their subconsciousness all
! through the day and night. "I would
j like to hear from you," she said. "Per-
! haps in your yearning for a solution of
I the problems that confront you I may
j be able to help you. Mrs. Boogs, tell
! us what is the great question of your
I life." Mrs. Boogs rose, pale and trem-
| bling. "It is this," she said: "What
: shall I get for the next meal?"|
This Man's Better Half Had It In an

There's nothing in that old saying
about women not having any sense of
Here's a case that happened:
The Campions, Mr. and Mrs, boarded the Euclid car to make the homeward journey. i
Campion had just discovered that
he was entirely without funds except
a check tucked away in his pocketbook
—not even a dime for car fare.
"I've spoken to you several times
about such carelessness," observed
Mrs. Campion in a vexed tone. "If I
didn't happen to have 20-or 30 cents
in my purse we'd have to walk home,
for it's too late for you to get that
cheek cashed. You ought to make
sure that you have change in your
pocket before you get on the street
"Oh, well, s'long as you've got car
fur. lot's don't worry about what
illicit happen," put in Campion irritably. "I've never been put off a street
car yet."
Tlie car was bo nearly filled, that
they couldn't get seats together, but
sat down on opposite sides of the aisle,
still glaring at each other.
"My wife'll hand it to you," says
Campion, nodding in the direction of
his helpmeet.
The fare taker went over to her. She
handed him a quarter, and he gave
her 15 cents change.
"What's this for—my change is a
nickel short?" she inquired icily.
"Took out for your husband," replied the conductor.
She looked around. "What! That
man told you to get his fare from
me? Why, I never saw him before.
He's an imposter."
Campion was game. And all that
saved him from being put off the car
was that he persuaded the conductor
to accept three two-cent stamps.

Pleaded   Her  Own   Case   In
High Court of Babylon.
Among the most interesting treas-;
ures of the British museum are the
clay tablets of ancient Babylonia.
These tablets, resembling unglazed
tiles, throw quaint lights and shadows
on the manners and customs of long
ago. Usually the records are fragmentary, but are occasionally fairly complete, as is that of legal proceedings
instituted by a "woman of Borsippa,"
which action- is of particular interest
as showing that a married woman's
property law was in force as early aa
550 B.C.
The proceedings to which the "documents" refer were taken by a woman
against her brother-in-law to regain
possession of property left by her husband. The evidence showed that a
man of Babylon had married the woman from Borsippa, and with the
money of her dowry he had bought an
estate. After a few years, having no
children of their own, they adopted a
son, and shortly' afterward the husband mortgaged the estate. Later he
died, leaving the estate mortgaged,
and his brother attempted to claim
the property.
The widow took the majtter before
the court at Borsippa, but it was beyond the jurisdiction of this court
and was referred to the high court
at Babylon. Here the case was duly
heard, and the judges rendered a decision to the effect thai as the property
had been the husband's the widow
could have it upon paying off the
mortgage and that the brother had no
claim. Eventually the estate would be
the property of the adopted son. It is
expressly stated, as though a matter
of some interest, that the woman
pleaded her own case in the high
court of Babylon without assistance.
He Got the Money.
The, following is an amusing story
of yotmg Prince Alexander of Batten-
berg, while at Eton:
"like many other little boys, he ran
short of pocket money, and wrote an
ingenious letter to his august grand-
■mother, Queen Victoria, asking for
some slight pecuniary assistance. He
received in return a just rebuke, telling him that little boys should keep
within their limits, and that he most
wait till his allowance next became
due. Shortly afterward the undefeated little prince resumed the correspondence in something like the following
form: "My dear Grandmamma: I am
sure you will be glad to know that I
need not trouble you for any money
