"I   will."  '"It was a gold breastpin, was it?"  "For sure."  "And this is a diamond ring?"  "it is. sir."  Mr. Bowser walked the man into a  poli'-e station and up to the desk and  said to the sergeant:  "Ollicer, here is a man I want to  give in charge,   'lie's a swindler."  "Aren't you mistaken?" asked the  ollicer. "I have kuown the man two  or three years. He's a hard worker  aud out of luck. He was asking me  to buy a breastpin this forenoon."  "But he sold it to my wife, and it's  brass. The diamouds in his ring are  only glass."  The sergeant sent for a jeweler  across the street, and when the man  had made his examination and report.  Mr. Bowser stood with open mouth  and might have remained an hour  longer had he not been told:  "Belter run borne, now. and try to  lose some of your sharpness on the  way."  "Well?" asked Mrs. Bowser, as he  arrivi'd.  "Fools and jackasses, the whole pack  of 'em," he replied as he sat down  with a grunt. And that's all she got  out of him.  THE EASIEST WAY.

Sir   Mackenzie   Bowell   Has   Been  Work  For Seventy-Five Years.  The   oldest   working   journalist   in  Canada is Sir Mackenzie-   Bowell.  of  The    Belleville   Intelligencer.    Away  back in 1834 he walked into that office and asked for a job.    He got it.  He  was then only twelve  years  old.  For seventy-five years Sir Mackenzie  has been actively identified with The  Intelligencer,  and to-day,  when  Parliament is not in session, you can always   find   him   at   his   desk   in   his  home city.   Pie is never idle and can  pen as able and argumentative an editorial to-day as he could half a century ago.    From "devil" he climbed  not only to the editorship and ownership of The Intelligencer,  out also to  the Premiership of Canada.   The veteran knight even yet, sets type occasionally by way of diversion.  I     When   on   a  western  trip  in   1895,  I during the time that he was Premier,  he called at the office of The Calgary  Herald  to see tho plant and observe  the working of the Mergenthaler typecasting  machines,   The  Herald  being  the first office on the prairies to  install   them.    He   got  talking   of   the  improvements  in    printing   trade  as  compared   with   half  a   century   ago.  In answer to a bantering inquiry as  to   whether   he   could   stick   type  as  well as ho did when a boy, he picked  up  a stick   and  set  several  lines  of  brevier.   The incident was referred to  at considerable length in the columns  of Tho  Herald   that   evening   under  the heading "The  Premier of Canada  sets type in The Herald office."   Another good story, which Sir Mackenzie loves to tell, is that, when Minister of Customs in the administration  of Sir John A. Macdonald, he was on  a horseback  lour through   the   West  visiting the  Crow's Nest  Pass   country.     Roughly   attired   for   the   long  journey,  when  ho got  to   Revelstoke  he sauntered leisurely into a printing  office and asked for a job, telling the  proprietor, who did not recognize him,  that   be   was   a   tramp   printer   and  wanted  to  get  a  little  money  to  go  east.   The boss sized him up and said  rather regretfully that he had no position   vacant.    The   Cabinet   Minister  thanked him and left.   It was only a  few hours   after  that  the   newspaper  man   learned   of  the  identity  of   his  caller.    He  hunted him up, and the  two had a hearty laugh over the episode.

There wasn't any doubt as to what  Mr. Bowser would say when be came  home to dinner and. was told of the  incident. He bad repeatedly warned  Mrs. Bowser about,such transactions.  *������������������ When he arrived and got seated at the  dinner table she iunoceiitly asked:  "Do men ever go around with brass  jewelry trying to sell it for gold?"  "Do they!" he exclaimed as he looked  up.    "Well,  1 should remark that  they did!   It's a regular business with  Jots of them."  "And what stories do they tell?"  "Oh. they generally get off something  about a sick wife or starving children,  'it's what the police call the sympathy  elodge."  "And not one of them is honest?"  "Not a living one.   The whole gang  ought to be in prison."  "But there must be cases where families are hard up," persisted Mrs. Bowser.  "All nonsense. If any of the fellows  call here you don't want to be taken  in by any of their stories. How does  it happen that you are asking me all  about this matter all of a sudden?"  "Why���������why, 1 just happened to thiob  of it, you see."  He Wants Particulars.  Mr. Bowser leaned back and looked  at her for half a minute and then  with a "riumpb!" went on with his  meal and asked no more questions. It  was not until they reached the sitting  room that he said:  "Now, madam, tell me all about It.  You have had a confidence game worked on you today, and 1 want the particulars."  "But he lalked like an honest man."  "Oh, certainly.   lie made you believe  black was while."  "And is wife is III."  "The usual tale.   What did he have  to sell?"  "This gold breastpin, no said it  was worth $5 or $0, and he let me have  it for two."  "For two!   For two!" exclaimed Mr.  Bowser as he reached for It.

Stand beside the imperial custom  house in Canton, China, and let the  eye range clown the river toward Hong  Kong. As far as the sight can reach  lie boats, boats and again boats,  writes a correspondent. These are no  ordinary craft, mere vessels of transport plying hither and thither, but  the countless homes of myriad Chinese, in which millions have been  born, havo lived and died. They aro  the dwellings of the very poor, whe  live in them practically free frorr-  rent, taxes and the other burdens oi  the ordinary citizen.  The tankia (which means boat  dwellers), as the denizens of theua  floating houses are called, form a sett  of caste apart from the rest of the  Cantonese. The shore dwellvrs regard  them as belonging to a lower social  order, and indeed they have many  customs-peculiar to themselves which  mark them as a separate community.  How the swarming masses of them  contrive to support existence is a  mystery, but their chief mode of employment is in carrying merchandise  and passengers from place to place.  In some cases the daughters of the  family go ashore to work in factories,  as do the girls of other countries; but  the year's earnings of a Chinese factory girl would scare suffice to buy a  single hat for her western sister.  Of course as against this low rate  of pay the standard of living is correspondingly different.  The houses which make up these  vast floating slums are of all sizes.  Some are but 15 feet long. From these  cramped dmensions, however, they  range up to a length of 50 or 60 feet.  A boat large enough to accommodate a family of moderate size can  be obtained for $20, and since the anchorage is free it is obvious that the  tankia effect many savings impossible  to the shore dweller.  Saskatchewan's   Premier.  The Premier of Saskatchewan, Hon.  Walter Scott, began life as a printer's  "devil" in the early days of Regina  when it was a small town and its only  claim to note lay in being the headquarters of the Territorial Government.. Young Scott applied for a-  job one day and got it. He swept the  floor, pulled proofs, washed rollers  and lighted fires in the office of a  country weekly. He did the work  faithfully and had ambition. No one  in that early period, however, dreamed that one day he would be the chief  adviser of His Majesty in a great  Canadian  province.  To find the secret of his success  one must know the man. If asked  to name the qualities that have led  to his ach'anceinent, his friends  would say that courage and stick-to-  it-iveness, along with an affable disposition, are his predominant characteristics. He is a vigorous campaign speaker, and never hits below  the belt. He is not a man to trifle  with on the platform as many an interrupter knows to his sorrow.  During the last provincial campaign  he was speaking at Lumsden, where  some opposition was in evidence. As  Mr. Scott was talking a heckler yelled, "Eats." Quick as a flash came  the retort:   .   /  "Has my young friend over there  got them in/his pocket or in his  head?" /  No further interjections were heard  after the laughter had subsided, and  tlie* meeting went on peacefully until  a late hour.  to   20  years ago, most everyono  considered that all Underwear���������no  matter how well cut and made���������-  would shrink and harden.  In those.days, the makers were working  on the wrong idea.    They were trying to  find n way .to finish Underwear so that it  would not shrink,-instead of trying to find  a   way   to get the shrink out the  wool  before   the . yarn   went   to   the  knittinp-  machines.  The late C. E: Stanfield���������who knew  wool as only a man'can know it who  studies'it from the sheep's back to the  wearer's" back���������gave his attention to the  problem for years.  Living in Nova Scotia, he soon realized  that woolen underwear, and the best- of  pure woolen underwear, was tlie only kind that would and could protect  the Canadian against the rigorous Canadian Winter. He found that as  underwear was then made, he could not make woolen underwear that  would not shrink, mat and harden. ��������� He devoted himself to this problem  and after many years of experimenting, he finally discovered a method  by which he could take the shrink out of the wool before the garments-  were knitted. 4  c c ThjS ���������eth������c1, .imProved and perfected, has made possible the immense business  or btanfield s Limited, with a larger output of their special classes of Underwear  ��������� than any other factory in Canada.

"Train robbers, burglars, safe blowers, holdup men and, in fact, nearly  all that class of professional criminals who resort to deeds of violence  are greatly addicted to the use of  iodoform," said a former California  sheriff. "These follows after committing some crime besprinkle tlieir  clothing liberally with the loud smelling fluid. They also pour it on their  guns and knives and the tools of  their trade. The reason is that they  often make hurried flights in which  they are not infrequently trailed with  bloodhounds. There is nothing 11  bloodhound hates worse than the  scent of iodoform, and it has been repeatedly the cause of the clog abandoning pursuit of a fugitive malefactor. Knowing this, the crooks are liberal buyers of an article that may  tend to cause their freedom from capture."  Father  Lacombe.  On September 8, Rev. Father La-  combe for the twenty thousandth time  celebrated High Mass in the cathedral  of St. Albert, near Edmonton, Alberta. The occasion was also the fiftieth  anniversary of the establishment of  the Gray nuns in the place. The  town, the convent, schools, cathedral,  and the palace of Bishop Legal were  all beautifully decorated. The cathedral was crowded at the services, and  Father Lacombe took charge. After  the celebration of the Mass, Rev!  Father Leduc, himself a pioneer priest  of the west, preached, and in the  course of his remarks referred to the  work of Father Lacombe in his early  pioneer days. At the luncheon which  followed the services. Bishop Legal  presided, and on his left were Lieutenant-Governor Bulyca, on his right  Hon. C. W. Cross, Attorney-General  of the province. Among the other  guests were Rev. Father Lacombe,  Senator Roy, several members of the  local Legislature, and others.  Rev. Father Lacombe, who is now-  over eighty years of age, was ordained on June 13, 1849, by the then Bishop of Montreal, and almost immediately thereafter he went to the west,  where he has labored ever since. He  mastered the Cree language and published a dictionary and grammar of  that language, as well as traveling  thousands of miles each year, and establishing several new churches.

The signs are  plain. The sufferer cannot keep his  mind on work, passes restless nights,  turns against food and cannot digest  it, feels exhausted after exertion,  while headaches and fits of dizziness  often adds to the misery." These symp.  toms denote that the nervous system'  is weakened and insufficiently nourished. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will  promptly cure because they enrich the  impure weak blood and thus give new  strength and tone to the exhausted  nerves. No other medicine can"do this  so promptly and so surely. ���������  Mr. W.  H.  Hipson,  East Pubnico,  N.S., says: "For a number of years I  was troubled with violent headaches.  When these spells came on the pain  ���������'���������as so severe that I feared I would  lose my'senses.    At the outset these  headaches would come on about onee  a week    I doctored for the trouble and  did evtrythihg possible, to get relief,  but without avail, and as time went  on-the attacks grew both in frequency  and severity. . The, pain was terrible  and with each attack seemed to grow  worse.   The only relief 1 could get was  from a hot mustard foot bath, and the  application of hot water and ammonia  to iay head.   I would then have to be  led to bod where I had to remain until  the attack passed away.   At this time  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills were brought  to  my  notice,  and  while I scarcely  hoped they would cure me, I decided  to try them.   After taking a few boxes  I found that the attacks were not so  severe, and I joyfully continued taking  the Pills until I had used ten boxes  when  every symptom of the trouble  had passed away, and I was in better  health than I had ever enjoyed before.

Mr.   Stringer   has   worked   at   both  callings,'buf he  knows  a great deal  more about poetry than.he does about  newspaper work.   His success in dealing   with   the   creative   forces   of   the  man born a child of the Muses was  correspondingly     greater,     and     the  members   of   the   London   Canadian  Club were  highly  pleased.    In itself  the choice of such a theme was flattering.   It was a clear.intimation .that  Mr. Stringer regarded his old friends  in   London  as  capable  of  cherishing  some ideals beyond those of business  and politics of-the pig's-feet and beer  variety.    His   remarks "-were .listened  to with wrapt attention and something  approaching reverence.

Ryrie Bros., Limited  134-138 Yonge Street  TORONTO  Canada Seems to  Have an  Excellent  Market In Vladivostock.  In a recent issue of The Journal of  the Canadian Bankers' Association,  there appeared an article by Mr.  Allen Lothbridge on the market which  Siberia offers for Canadian manufactured goods. With regard to the  possibilities for trade, Mr. Lethbridge  has tnis to say:  "Vladivostock,   the    harbor    of   Siberia,   is, situated    approximately   at  the same distance from Vancouver as  is Yokohama, and is open to navigation at all times of the year.   Canada  should therefore  be in a position to  supply,  easily   and   economically,   a  great  proportion   of   imported  goods,  as at present these must either travel  from Moscow by a single line of railway  G,5C0  miles  long,   obviously   at  times  causing   terrible  Congestion  of  traffic;  or  must  make   the  long  sea  voyage via the Suez Canal and Singapore, occupying over two months.  "Alreary Canadian agricultural implements    are   favorably    known   in  Western  Siberia,   where  they  arc  in  successful  competition with, both the  German  and   American  makes.    The  International Harvester Co. of Chicago are opening a branch at Vladivostock, thus showing that they are alive  to  the   possibilities  of  the  situation,  and intend  making a bid to capture  the market.    Owing to the fact that  this corporation arc willing to grant  more  extensive credit, facilities  than  the  Canadian  firms,    it  is   probable  [ that   they   may   succeed.    Canadian  j companies would do well to carefully  consider this question of credit, as it  must prove" the keynote   of   success.  The demand for agricultural machinery of  all  kinds must be  a growing  one to keep pace with the increase of  population  caused   by  the  influx    of  immigrants."  -A  number of English  papers  have  taken up this matter to some extent,  and The Canadian Gazette of London,  says:  "Siberia will outlive its ill fame as  an icy wilderness as the Canadian  West has djne, and there is no limit  to its expansive capacities.
