"There's  ..nothing to be  afraid of. A  scarecrow ' can't  -'hurt  'you,"   the  - bulk of men and  women still believe   the scare-",  . ciow is a powerful and destroying fetish.  . This attitude"  is most marked in relation to certain forms  of disease. In'diseases' of the lungs and  respiratory organs, for instance, it is the  custom to assume tli.it.there is uo cure for  the cough, no help, for the hemorrhage, no  healing for the lungs. The scarecrow, Con.  sumption, is set up,"often taking the form  of some inexperienced and unskillful practitioner who denies hope orVlielp to the  victim of disease. ,  Yet tlie records go to show that stubborn  coughs have been cured, jthat persistent  hemorrhages have been stopped, and that  weak lungs have been made strong by  the use' of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical  Discovery. , '  TESTIMONY TALKS.  All the claims in the world for the cura-  ti\e vu lues of a medlciup will not equal  one testimony to the actual fact of cure.  Thousands of testimoiftals like the following ha.e been received from persons cured  of lung "tioubles,"bionchitis, hemoirhage,  obstinate coughs, etc., by "Golden Medical  Discovery:"  "I \\.is \ery ^ick inilecd," writes Mrs. Motile  Jacob-,," ol l'ellou, Kent Co, Delnwnre, "and  our family doctor snul I had consumption. I  tliouglit I must die soon, for I felt so awfully'  bail. Had a bad cough, spit blood, w.is -eiy  short of breath, in fact, could hardly,get my.  breath at all sometimes. I had pains in my  chest and, light lung, also had dyspepsia.

Thcie is no al"  cnliol in "Golden  Medical Discovery " and it is entirely fiee from  opium, cocaine,  and all other narcotics.  Sometimes a  dealer will ofTer  a substitute for  the "Discovery,"  claiming it to be  "just as good."  The substitute  pays him more  profit, that's why.  I'rotcct yourself  from unscrupulous  dealers  by    insisting on Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical  Discovery.  31 GENTS' WORTH  Of knowledge wouldn't amount to much,  you'd think.

Tbe ancients often used the amethyst for cutting figures both in relief  nnd in intaglio, and there is in tlie national library of France a delicately  wrought profile of Miecenas, a Roman  statesman of Octavius' time, engraved  on amethyst by Dioscorides, one of tbe  four celebrated engravers mentioned  by Pliny.

When C. P. R- freight agent
Greer was here he declared the
company gave no preferential rates.
Here is an instance which he would
do well to ponder oyer and take-
some s'tcps to 'remedy. Under the
existing .tariff tlie rate, from Qal-
g'ary to Okanagan points is six
cents a hundred less than from the
same points to Calgary: Another
case of-preferential "tariff is that,
although Winnipeg is equidistant
between east and' west 'terminals,
tlie rate from the west to Winnipeg
is'25 to 35 cents a hundred more
than from 'the east to'.Winnipeg.
The west 'is just as important ,as
the east and should have equal
consideration from a railway company subsidised by the public as
the C. P. R. has .been.

unprecedented in'thc history ,of tlie
Kootenay, and I do not even exclude
the Rossland iiish, which was probably
the largest. The Sandon boom was- a
hot one foi the ' reason that/its activity was'confined to a small area.

"l.esolvcd, that this council believes  that the advantages of British Columbia, as a ranching and fruit, growing  coil ti try, a re very inade.pialely brought  to tho notice of the outside world, that  no systematic elfort is now being  made by the provincial government  to Hccure the settlement of our agricultural lands; that two things are  urgently needed in connection with  this province. ('  "Firstly���������Proper surveys of at least  portions of our available lands and thc  furnishing of government agents with  full jilans and details thereof, and  ".Secondly���������The reorganization of  the itgent-gcncral's oflice in London."  The foregoing resolution, adopted at  the recent convention of the Interior  District Liberal Council, deals with a  matter that has nil along failed to receive thc attention at the hands ot  the government its importance warrants.      It is an indisputable fact to-  Patients will hear of something  to their advantage, by writing  to the Diabetic Institute, St.  Dunstan's Hill, London, B.C. .  iNOTHINti!  TO PAY.  J  day that at no" government agent's  ollice in the province can any definite  information concerning .available"  agricultural hinds be obtained, by intending settlers. Thc effect of this is  that scores of homeseckers, who might  becoincresidciits of this province, pass  on either to thc northwest or to the  Pacific coast states. Moreover, thc  fact that the local authorities have no  information for intending settlers  means that thc agent-general in London is in an equal state of darkness in  regard to just those matters which he  should be best informed upon if he is  to serve this province at all effect ivcly.  Rritish Columbia needs population.  There is room in this province for  hundreds of thousands of new settlers.  If reliable data were available and  roiidily accessible to those seeking information, many of thc thousands  now pom ing into western Canada fiom  the old woild and the United States  would remain in this province, to  their own profit and the betterment  of conditions for those already here.  One of thc reasons of the e.vce'ssivc  pei capita cost of education, administration of justice and public works,  such" us roads, trails, etc., is the'  limited population. These necessities  of modern civili/.ation could be provided nt a (ric.itly reduced per capita  cost if the present population of  British Columbia were 500,000 instead of 200,000, and there is no reason  why, by an energetic and systematic  immigration policy, this increase in  population should not come about  speedily. ��������� Apparently nothing is to be  done this year in' this direction, and,*  wc fear,  it'will  require a great deal '  keener public  interest in  thc matter  than is at present bcingdisplaycd,. to  arouse premier McBride to a sense ot  the situation."���������Daily News.

Already this beason 260,000 fruit  trees, imported from points outside  the province, have gone through the  hands of the provincial fruit inspector,  and probably f^ur or five times as  many more fruit trees have been  purchased from nurseries in the province for planting out.
