The story is told'that on one of oui  missionary fields a native approached  the missionary and declared that he  wished to join tho church, lie was  carefully examined, as is the custom,  and answered satisfactorily most it  not all of the questions put to him.  Just before completing tiie examination the missionary asked the native if  he had a wife. "Yes," he replied, "J  have two." "Well," said tlie missionary, "we cannot receive you into the  church if you have two wives. We  are sorry, because you give a good account of yourself, but so long as you  have two wives we cannot receive you  into tho membership of tho church,"'  Some time elapsed and the native appeared again before the missionary and  stated that there was now no objection  to his entering the church. The missionary said, "How about your second  wife?" "Oh," replied the native, "that's  all right. I have eaten her."���������LondoB  Standard.  1I1GUEL SIM! \XG AC1I0SS THU Ol'ES, 1IUSTS  WjIX AT IIIS  IIUULS  face hnd grown more sphinxlike than  over.

Won't Reduce Rates  V -Legislature Blamed.    /  The'C.'P. R. recently "complained  about.the high priccB of lumber on tbe  prairie, and thc lumber manufacturers  put'the C. P. R. up against it by risking the company, to lowor its'freight  rates so they could reduce prices.'  The force'of.the proposition is evident  from the fact ��������� that the C. P. R.'gets  more for freight* in'many* instances  than the manufacturer gets, for his  product. That was a horse of another  colour and now' wo 'find C. P.;R.  freight agent Peters says":,      ���������"'   -  "Shortly before I left Winnipeg,"  continued Mr. Peters, "the timber  manufacturers' of the coast and the  Crow's Nest,.district met' us, Vvith a  rctptest for a reduction, but we told  them emphatically that we could not  moot their wishes."' We explained" to  them that tho increase in our rates of  taxation in British Columbia rendered  it impossible for us' to 'consider reductions in rates.' It was further  explained to the lumbermen ttiat the  expense of ha riling empty,'cars west  over   tho  mountain  to receive .sliip-  j i r .  merits was another factor of expense  which had' to be'taken into consideration.',! To handle lumber, from the  coast a great many "cars have to be  hauled through tlie mountains at a  dead loss., ���������'.- " ., " -' ,- , ���������  "It's a yeryvpoor 'time for British  Columbiatpeople to ask the C. P. It.  to reduce rates. r It must be remembered that the Provincial" Government  has just i increased the taxation (in  railroads, and is taking money/out- of  the C. P. R. to build bridges* to' let the  Great Northern into the country..  The government''���������has ..increased the  taxable valuation from $2000 to ������l0,-  000 per mile. All, tbeburden'of-this'  tax. falls on the tC. P. It. which has  aproximatcly ' 050 miles of,, road in  British Columbia. *.<On' the.other  hand, ,tbe <Great .Northern, with less  than a hundred miles of track, hardly  fcels'tbe tax." Yes, the man who'asks  for leduced freight rates 'just now is  liable to pass nn uncomfortable few  minutes with the company.officials.  '"Does the C. P. Ity.intend to go into  thc,lumber manufacturing business ?"  "The C. P. R. has large timber  -limits' alongV'tlic .'line ���������of the Crow's  (Nest road, nnd Mr. Wbyte has said if  the selling price of lumber to tlTe  settlers in thc prairie districts is not  kept within'n proper figure, the company will place mills on its'timber  limits and manufacture. Whether or  not those mills will be built depends.  T believe, laigcly on the pi ices asked  for lumber iii "the future. Thc manufacturers say the cost of producing is  higher now than ever befoie, the  change being brought about by in-,  ci eased taxation and the higher .cost  of labor. They state they cannot  lower their pi ices to any gieat-extent.  However, the profits of the middlemen  may be excessive���������that may be where  tho tiouble lies.

' A very enjoyable time was spent on  Monday evening at tbe Hotel Reveistoke when the hockey and lacrosse  boys "lined up'\,to , bid > f.ucncll to  their comrade J. M. Graham.  B. A. Lawson referced the proceedings to the satisfaction of cveiyone  present and justly penalised several of  the boys, to the extent of songs and  musical selections, for lingering olf  side.  1 Before the commencement of the  second half leferee Lawson, after addressing a few well chosen words, called upon Mr. Graham to step forward,  and on behalf of the lacrosse and  ho key boys piesented him with a  handsome locket with diamond mounting, suitably engiaved, as a memento  of tho occasion, and it is needless to  say that tbe icc-ipient was taken vciy  much by surpiisc, and he. in vvoids of  fee:ing, thanked the boys for the gift  nnd expressed hi*> icgicts at being  compelled to leave Kevelstokc. Aftei  this play was again ieaumcd and when  the whistle was blown calling time,  regrets weie heaid on all sides that  such an enjoyable evening had passed  so quickly.  Mr Graham left for Calgaiy Tuesday morning to accept a position with  the Dominion Express Co. His leaving here will not only be keenly felt  in sporting, but in'social circles where  Provincial Land ,Survey A. E. Ashcroft returned this week.'from* Vernon,  where he 'has been the' past two  months engaged in, survey work on  the line of the Midway aiid Vernon  railway says the Times. _  , Five miles of this line from' Vernon  in this direction have .been surveyed,  leveled and cioss-scctioned. so that  now thc company may at any time  call for tenders for the construction of  that portion.  Mr. Ashcroft, during bis absence,  traversed the country through which  the new line w ill um from Vernon to  Kclownn. Owing to the elevations  and - grade diflicultics he found ' it  necessary to change the line on Long  lake, or that portion generally, known  as Wood lake, to a point wheie tbcic  is a natural cut in thc hillside and  wheie the lake is gathered Io a narrow-'  ness that atfouls a n.ituial ciossing. to  the cast side.' Thc formei pioposed  unite lay wholly on .the west side of  Long lake.  Now that thc dominion and pio-  viiici.il governments have granted thc  needed appropriations nnd concessions  lhe Midway and Vernon Railway Co.  vvill piosecute tho'wnrk of construction  of the new line vigoiou-ly, ju-t as  soon a-a few fuilher linanci.il alfaiif-  ate ananged.  Thc completion of this road vvill  open up vast aieas of agrie'iiltural and  niincial tenitory. This railway will  mateiinlly leduce the distance between Ikiunelnry nnd tbe coast cities.

I'y lhe piopo-ed line the  distance would be ieduced to 181  miles, and the time lo !) hours���������vvlucli  would vvnrlc a saving of -10 bouts,"to  say nothing ot what vvould .be saved in  passenger and I'iciglit iate* between  the two points.

The Victoria Gross  ���������    For Valor-  In Ten Colors  a    '    ���������-  Weekly Mail and Empire  For News-  -24  Pages  THE picture shown' is one dear to every man; woman,  boy and girl, on account of its meaning���������" The Victoria Cross," given for conspicuous bravery. If only  the soil of South Africa could voice the deeds performed  upon it, how many Victoria Crosses would have beea.  found to have been earned by Canada's sons I It is  hard in the heat of action to notice every act of valor, and  therefore only those which take place under the eye of ���������  superiors of sufficient rank can be.noted.  The picture shows one of such deeds Two troopers are  closely pressed by the enemy. The horse of onejs hit.  Under the withering fire, the man whose mounHs unharmed  halts, and, risking everything, waits to get his comrade safely  mounted behind him and carry him back to the Canadian  lines. It is a desperate deed, and one often performed but  seldom noticed. When, however, such an act ,is seen, the  reward dear to soldiers' hearts above -every other is the  result.
