I have been in the papers just as much as you have."  ; Her Name Not Mentioned.  - ' "Your name, madam, was not mentioned in the slightest The publisher  didn't seem to remember that there  .was such a person living."  ' "Oh, he didn't? Thanks to him.  .Well, what of you?"  "I am to write my autobiography for  him.   There will be 100,000 words, and  the pay will be $20,000."  .   "You don't say!   Why, that's a for-  tune."  ��������� "Exactly. He said it was the highest  price he had ever paid for anything of  the kind, but that he shouldn't begrudge the outlay."  "But what is there about your autobiography to he worth that sum?" she  recklessly queried.  Mr. Bowser drew himself up.  >   He folded his arms.  He looked down upon her in cold  disdain.  "I���������I didn't mean It in just that  way." she explained.  "Mrs. Bowser."'he said at last, "we  will let the matter pass, but please be  a little more careful of your language  in the future. There are occasions  ���������when you seem to forget who you are  addressing. For; your enlightenment  I will say that the publisher is satis-  fled that my autobiography will make  the hit of the decade. In fact, he had  the frankness to say that If Washington or Napoleon were alive he would  give me the preference over them."  "When are you going to begin writing?"  "This evening���������at once. He wishes  to get the completed article as soon as  possible. On the street car, on the  way home. I was thinking up some of  the most thrilling passages of my life,  and I want to write them out this  evening."  "Will you read me what you write  tonight?"  "Possibly."  "If you want any of my help, you  know."  Mr. Bowser looked'down upon her  with a smile of pily nnd condescension  aud then turned away and entered the  library. He laid a pad of paper before him and sharpened a pencil. Then  he scratched his head with his right  hand and with his left. Then he leaned back and thought. Then he got up  and walked around and thought some  more. Then he sat down and mopped  his marble brow and wrote:  "Samuel Bowser, the subject of this  sketch, was born In Chemung In thi  year 18-18. Ills father was a fanner.  He was an only child. There Is never  more than one such child seen In n  ��������� family.  j "Samuel was a precocious child from  earliest Infancy. lie could walk at six  months; he could talk at eight; he was  !found (lshlng In a pan of water at ten;  when he was n yair old fT* could tell  the difference between a lead nickel  and a good one.  Bowser's Early Life.  "Before he waa three years ola the  child was Inquiring Into mechanics,  philosophy aud the occult, and the  neighbors would gather of au evening  nud sit with open mouths to hear him  talk. He was reading Shakespeare at  four, and at five the schoolmaster  frankly admitted that he could learn  him no more. Tho father then mortgaged his farm to send tiro young hoy  to college. He choso Harvard In preference. Jo Vale, because he had a until*  i-iU'anfipnthy against Yale locks.  "The professors had heard of young  Bowser, but received blur with Incredulity. They set out to prove him a  young bluffer, but In the course of a  single afternoon he'had not only, astonished them beyond .measure, but  taken his place at the head of all  '.-lasses. It Is recorded that they gathered In council and pronounced the  boy the greatest prodigy of tbe century."  When Mr. Bowser had got that far  he began to doubt himself and to wish  for .Mrs. Bowser's opinion. lie fought  Ihe feeling off for a few minutes, not  wishing to condescend too much, but  finally gathered up the pages and  walked out Into the sitting room and  said:  "Mrs. Bowser, I will read you what  I have written so far. It Is only part  of the introductory. Of course you un-  derstiuid nothing about literary work,  hut I should like you to see the easy  flow of language. That's the art of literary work���������the easy flow."  He thereupon began to read, but  when he had reached the point where  he began inquiring into the occult Mrs.  Bowser interrupted with:  "What inquiries did you make?"  "Wei1���������ahem���������well, I don't remember after this lapse of time, hut I  made Inquiries." hc'repllcd.  "What were you Inquiring about mechanics?"  "I can't say just at this moment."  "Were you asking why a wheelbarrow had only one wheel, while a wagon had four?"  "Madam, do you know who you are  talking lo?" he asked ������s he rose up.  "1'lease read the rest. I didn't mean  to say anything to offend. It was so  singular for you to be inquiring Into  the laws of mechanics at that ago that  I was curious to know just what you  wanted to be informed about."  Mr. Bowser choked over the matter  for a moment and then read on. When  he had reached the point of being sent  away to college Mrs. Bowser interrupted again to ask:  Calls Himself an Ass.  "Did your father ever pay that mortgage or did he lose his farm?"  "By the living jingo, woman, but do  you mean to insult me?"  "Wh3\ no; of course not I just asked you"���������  "I know you asked me. and I'll have  no more of it. From now ou you  won't hear another line of this autobiography���������not a line. 1 was an ass  for reading you what I have. I might  have known that you would get off  something mean."  At that moment the doorbell rang,  and Mr. Bowser, being on his feet, answered it. He opened the door to And  his publisher there.  "I was up this way and ran In to,tell  you that if you can make 200,000 words  of the sketch I will pay you double,"  said the man.  "Well, I will try to. I have just  started on tho introduction."   .-  "Good! Good! 1 knew yon were a  hustler. And/ bow do you like It as  far as you have gone?"  "I think it's splendid."  "That's fine. Say, Bowser, I want  to lend my sister over on the uext  street $20. Let me have It touight.  and I'll send It over to your office lathe morning."  Mr. Bowser flushed snow white and  then brick red.  "Yes; send it over In the morning,"  smiled the publisher.  "I-I couldn't do it."  "No?  Then, no twenty, no autoblog."  "Then you get out of here, you dead-  beat, you!"  When the door closed behind the  man Mr. Bowser strode down to the  sitting room. Mrs. Bowser had laughed until she had tears In her eyes.  "Ha!" he exclaimed as he grabbed  up the manuscript.  "Ha!" he shouted as he held it aloft  and tore It into shreds.  "Ha, ha!" he almost roared as he  kicked at the cat and strode down the  hall to clap on his bat and hie him out  into the night M.

Bloodlessness is the  direct cause of many common diseases, such as indigestion, palpitation  of the heart, debility, decline, neuralgia, nervousness, rheumatism and  consumption. The surest signs of  poor blood are paleness, bluish lips,  cold hands and feet, general weakness,  low spirits and headaches and backaches. If anaemia is not. checked in  time it will probably develop into  consumption. There i.s one certain  cure for anaemia���������Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. These pills actually make new,  rich, red blood, which fills the veins  and brings new life, new energy, and  good health to bloodless people. In  proof of this Miss Mnbol Clendenning,  Niagara Falls, Out., says: "For two  years I suffered from anaemia, f was  weak, thin, and had no appetite; I  sometimes had distressing headaches  and felt low-spirited. My heart would  palpitate violently; 1 could do no  work around the house; I became  very pale and my nerves cot unstrung.  The efforts of two good doctors failed  to help me, I was in such a pitiful  state. One d.-iv u friend urged me to  try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I did  so. Soon I saw the pills were helping me and by the t;me I had taken  nine boxes [ was completely cured.  I had a good appetite, gained in  weight, I hadn't an ache or pain,  could sleep well, and I am in better  health now than I ever was. I cannot speak too highly of what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done for me."  What Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have  done for Miss Clendenning they have  done for thousands���������they will "do for  you. But you must get the genuine  with the full name "Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for Pale People" on the  wrapper around "every box. If your  dealer has not got the genuine "pills  you can get them at 50 cents a box  or six boxes for $2.50 from The Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont.  Condemned     For     Inefficiency  Hampered   in  Their   Work  By  Legislation  (Montreal GazeUe)  The railways are undergoing  soriiewhat aggravated form their annual condemnation because the' temporary demand for���������cars is'' greater  than their-equipment enables them  to meet. The situation is not new,  nor is anything notably new being  stiid about it. it extends to the1- United States and to the best equipped  roads there -as well as to roads in  Canada, it was only a few. days ago  that lines between New York and  Buffalo had to announce they could  make no more contracts for the carriage of grain over their tracks till  those they were engaged on had been  fulfilled. In both"countries there is,  however, a disposition to take hold  of minor incidents, to magnify them,  to represent them as indicating the  general situation, and lo hold the  railways up to condemnation as being  inefficiently equipped arid inefficiently managed by men who have no' regard either ior those who stand ��������� to  the road in the relation of customers  or for the general interest of the  country. To answer such extreme  talk it should only be necessary to  point to the work the railways have  done turd are doing, to the immense  traliic they carry at about the lowest  rates prevailing in the world,and to  their constant expenditures, not alone  on new rolling stock, but on terminals, warehouses, and all that is requisite to thc effective and cheap  transport of passengers and freight.  In the case of tlie two leading Canadian railways, the Grand Trunk nnd  Canadian Pacific, there was un addition to the rolling'stock between July  190G, and July, 1907, of 8,880 freight  cars. 'This represented an increase  in car equipment much beyond the  increase in mileage- of the roads.  Most of it was designated to meet the  requirements of the increasing traffic  that was expected. The records show  the roads are carrying more traffic  than they ever did before, though  their profit is-not proportionately increasing. If in spite of this expenditure and this increased business,  there are at times and places delays  in the supply of cars, it is for the  well understood reason that it is not  commercially practicable to keep a  railway equipped with sufficient rolling stock to meet at once the maximum demand of the season of greatest  traffic, particularly when, as often  happens, the movement of the freight  offered is largely in one direction.  This is recognized by all who give  study to the question, and by railway commissioners, amongst others,  when they are composed of men of  practical knowledge and with a sense  of responsibility resting upon themw  Railways may not be expected to  perform either physical or commercial impossibilities. In this connection, also, it may be pointed out that  while railways on this continent 'are  being condemned for not providing  greater" means for doing their work,  they are at the same time being hampered by legislation and legal orders,  sometimes to the extent of reducing  their credit. No one can or should  condemn the law that requires railways to treat all who come to them  with business on the same footing as  regards rates, promptness and efficiency of service, etc. When, on the  plea of serving the public, however,  attempts are made to reduce their  rates below a reasonable remunerative standard, harm is done, not only to those who have invested money  in building railways, trusting in the  public faith to be able to operate  them under fair business conditions,  but also io the communities which  the railways serve.  .���������._-��������� -  1 I  Y TROUBLES  THE LIVER  Gases Which  Led to ihe Discovery of  That Great Hieriioine,  DR.

ABUSE ��������� GRAIN  "ACT CAUSES BELAY  160 Cars  Required   Now -to  Do  Work  Formerly Accomplished  With  ,      One Hundred  (From the Free Press)  The practical working under present  conditions-of. the clauses of the Manitoba grain act regulating the distribution of cars was "frankly discussed with a Free Press representative by William Wliyte, second vice-  president of the,O.P.R.. Mr. Why ft  tilTiiined that abuses of the act were  seriously hampering the railway in its  efforts to move the crop expeditiously, and were, in reality, defeating  the main purposes of the law.  "The great weakness of the Manitoba grain act," said Mr. Whyte, "is  that its' framers had evidently beer,  so strongly seized with the idea of  protecting the grain growers against  the railway companies and the elevator operators, that they evidently  overlooked the rights of the latter to  be protected against the abuse of privileges by the grain growers. In any  event it is certain that no adequate  provision was made which would give  the railway companies such protection, and as the years go by the original spirit of the act, which was intended to be 'simply a check on the  elevator operators, is being more and  more abused by those it was designed to protect. From year to year the  farmer has discovered new weak spots  in its provisions of which he may  take advantage with impunity to his  own individual advantage, no doubt,'  but with equal certainly to the disadvantage of the farming community  as a whole.  Delay to Equipment.  "This season thsse abuses have  cu'minated in such a serious delay  to railway equipment that its evil  effects are apparent to all, so much so  that at one or two points the citizens  and farmers have combined in requesting tlie warehouse commissioner,  if pospible, to suspend the grain act  tempore;ily to allow elevators to get  a larger percentage of the cars, so  that they may be enabled to get  their grain out more promptly.  "When it is pointed out -that during the season of 1905 the Canadian  Pacific was able to get 82 per cent,  of the cars available at grain stations  loaded per day,: for the season of 19Qj>  this had dropped to 63 per cent.,'and  that this season we will average under 50 per cent, of available cars  loaded per'day, trie evil is apparent.  In other words, it is evident from the  above figures that it is taking, this  season, 160 cars to get the same re-1  suit that 100 accomplished two years'  ago. This downward, tendency can  be ascribed to no other cause than  to the working of the act. ���������  "Innumerable    examples     of    the  mediately goes to the railway station  and puts down his name for a car  for this date. He may not thresh for  weeks, in the meantime, however, he  will probably go to the railway station, find that the car has been allotted to him and after heing held for  tlie required length of time, his application cancelled. He immediately  puts .down his name for another car.  This performance may be legally re-  'peated an indefinite number of ti.mes  and .the railway company hiis absolutely no redress. There are cases on  record where one car has -been thus  placed and cancelled for different applicants ten and twelve times.  Has Not Attained  Object  "Probably the most regrettable iea-  ture of the whole thhig "is that the  Grain act does not effect the.main  purpose for which it was brought  into existence, that is to protect the  farmer by giving him the*alterirative  ���������)f shipping his own grain direct in  ^ases where it might be considered/  tlie elevator operators were making  an unreasonable spread between street  ind track prices: Tlie restrictions of  the Grain act, which put an elevator  Dn the same footing as the individual  iarrner, compels the elevator . companies to rrinke the spread more pro-  'lounced, and where in former'years  before the net came into force there  was very .little difference between  track and street prices until-the close  of navigation was approaching, now  the spread is a permanent feature,  -is the elevator companies have no  juarantee that they will be able to  ���������ret out their first week's" receipts before the close of navigation. The  bona-fide farmer," on the other hand,  'hiding the order book plugged with  ���������lames and his chances 'of getting n  ?nr in the immediate future very  dim, and being pressed for ready  iftsh to pay his threshing bill, help,  ������������������to., is in many cases compelled to  toll his grain to the elevators'; and is  -iompelled to take a greatly reduced  orice bv reason-* of conditions which  the working out of the Grain act has  created.  The   Solution  "Tt is becoming more and more  evident that the solution of the situation will lie along the lines of more  lonmlete government control and regulation of elevator operations, a  -pstricted privilege of direct, loading  where the spread in prices exceeds  ���������H certain mark, and where direct  loading is resorted to some guarantee obtained from the applicants that  they will not abuse tlie privilege.  This latter object is to,be'accomp'ish-  ���������>d bv having each applicant deposit  -.ay two dollars with the agent at the  time of application, said sum to be  ������������������efunded if car is loaded when allotted, or application cancelled previous  to arrival of the car."

Flood  of  Bogus  Orders  "At one   town   in   Saskatchewan,"  continued    Mr.  Whyte,     "something  over 800 applications had been made  for cars.   It was known by all that a  large  percentage of  the  names  were  fictitious,   in   fact,   it  was    common  talk   that  the  order  book   contained  the names of most of the school children in the district.    The agent, in  conformity with  the  grain  act,   was  compelled to wade through  this sea  ���������   of names, getting a proportion of the  cars loaded, but in many cases placing the cars uselessly, only to cancel  the order after the car had been held  the  required  length  of time.    Every  such" case, needless to say, costs the  railway ^company money.    The situation finally became so acute that the  . warehouse   commissioner   was   asked  to investigate the matter by one or  two bona fide applicants.   He did so  and many of the names which had  been  used  to  'pad'  the   order  book  were cancelled.    No prosecution followed, however, as the practice. Was  so widespread it would have involved  the   whole  community.    In   fact,   it  seemed to be the feeling that if the  case had to  come  before  a jury  at  that point there would not be found  enough men  therilselves innocent -of  the practice to try the case.  A   Dishonest   Practice  "At another point within  the last  few days a car was allotted and placed at the loading, platform,    The applicant on being advised in the usual  way that the car had been placed for  him, threw'one. sack of grain into the  car, thus complying -with that clause  of the act which requires that applicant must declare his -intention and  ability to load his car and must commence to load within 24 hours.   The  placing of the sack of grain in the  car applicant claimed was 'commencing to load.' The "car was not completed until six days later.   The above  is a common practice and many instances could be cited.  "The grain producing area west of  Winnipeg is covered by four superintendents' districts. A check made  within the last few days of one of  these districts only, showed that on  one day's reports a total of twenty-  two cars had been delayed in loading  from two to six days. When it is considered that the same thing is happening daily on each of the other four  districts, the delay to a railway company's rolling stock from this source  must be appreciated.  "Again "when the farmer has cut  his crop," continued Mr. Whyte, "he  figures that he will probably start to  thresh at a certain date and he im-  WESTERN  EXCURSIONS  A splendid opportunity is being afforded those wishing to take a trip to  the Coast cities during the winter  months.

In other  words, they can become angels. Not  only so, but many of them are already angels, right here in Chicago,  and the angelic feminine hosts may be  seen on" State street any afternoon."  Such were the views voiced recently by Chicago club women in commenting on the Methodist meeting at  Chester Heights, Pa., at which several ministers argued that there could  bj no female- angels, The reason advanced was thaf, there was no record  of any angels of the female sex and  therefore such angels did not exist.  Emphatic exception was taken to  this position by Chicago women. It  was pointed out that angels probably  are chosen for their good works, and  that, if this be the test of eligibility,  women have quite as good a chance  as men lor the angel choir.  The first club woman who laughed  to scorn the suggestion from Chester  Heights was Mrs. William F. Grower,  corresponding secretary of the Chicago Woman's Club.  "The idea that women connot be  angels i.s quite ridiculous," declared  Mrs. Grower. "The proof is that wo-  - men are angels now���������I mean tlie majority of them��������� aiid they undoubtedly  will go on being angels forever. Here  in Chicago and all over the country  are plenty of women who' are angels  ���������all the men have to do is to use  their eyes and brains to see that. I  don't think the sex, therefore, need  have any cause for worry over the  news from 'Pennsylvania."  Mrs. John Worthy, chairman of the  art and literature department of the  Chicago Woman's Club, also rallied  to the support of her,sex,  "It may bu* that no record exists  of female angels," said she, "but that  i? no proof .that female angels do  not exist.  ."I don't know whether any people  at all will become angels, but if we-  are. to do so thpn I-am sure women  have quite as good -an opportunity a*  men. There certainly will be n lurpi-  representation of women among tin*  angels. T do'not make any claims as  .to which sex will be in the,majority,  but sonif* women will be there with  out doubt ,   ' **  "It should not be forgotten that  there are plenty of records of female  saints, even if records as to female  angels are lacking. Besides that, many  women "are saints even on oiirfh today. I believe it would be found that  the men at Chester Heights who argued that women could not be angels  were elderly. If young men were  asked, they, unquestionably would insist that women can be an<r:-ls. and  some of them doubtless would declare  that women have so many angelic  qualities that a very slight motamor-  prWjs would b������ necessary to transform thern to full-fledged angels."

The  lute Queen, during the greater part of  her reign, declined ' to visit Ireland  and was angry if :tlie.subject was mentioned. Ii she feared danger to her  porson, her fear was groundless. Her  son fortunately is endowed in a singular degree with the attractiveness of  manner which fits him for his beneficent part.  "Can you tell me the secret of predicting weather months ahead?"  "In confidence, yes," answered the  hoary prophet. "You guess at it.

"Yes," replied the would-be tenant, solemnly, "six���������all in the cemetery.'"  "Better there than here," said the  landlord, consolingly; and proceeded  to execute the desired lease.  In due time the children returned  from the cemetery, whither they had  been sent to play, but it was too late  to annul the contract.���������Judge,  Furnishes  Perpetual  Supply  of Tim  ber   and   Fuel���������Conservation  of Water Supply  The setting aside of a timbered tract  of country as a forest reserve does  not mean that this tract'is to be a  sort of sacred enclosure Iwithiu whose  bounds ho tree is to be cut. On the  contrary the purpose of setting aside  the reserve is that it shall furnish a  permanent' and perpetual supply of  timber and fuel for the people de-  depending on it.  In order that tin's object may be  effected, the timbered lands must be  put under proper management. The  central idea of this management is  that the quantity of timber which  shall be allowed to be taken off the  area.in any,period shall rrot be greater than the amount of timber which  is -grown on the area during this period. This is the ideal of forest management. Needless to say, the carrying out of this idea meets with various modifications, especially when  scientific management is first introduced.  In order that this policy may be  carried out, it is necessary to know,  not only the a'ctual amount of timber  on the reserve at present, but also  the rate at which the timber is grow  ing and what amount of timber is be  ing produced. When these have been  found out, the amount of timber  which may be removed from the tract  each year may be calculated. It is  to ascertain the points referred to  that parties have been sent out each  summer since J905 by the Forestry  Branch of the Department of the Interior, in whose charge the management of the reserves lies.  The number and diameter of the  trees on the tract are arrived at by  going over a certain proportion (previously determined) of the tract,  counting the trees: thereon and measuring the diameters accurately with  "tree calipers", record of all which  is made at the time and, kept.., The  relation between the diameter and  height of the trees are also studied,  for instance,1 how high a tree four  inches in'dianieter will be. Represen-  sentative trees of each diameter  are also felled and "stem analyses"  made. From measurements taken  in these "stem analyses" it may be  determined, not only what are the  actual cubic contents of the tree at  present, but also what were the contents of the tree ten, twenty, or any  number of years ago; and from what  it has done in the past, the future  growth of the tree may be arrived at.  By subsequent calculations in the  office it may be determined w-hat is  the actual amount of~ timber (in  cords, board feet or other measurement) standing on the tract, what is  the rate of growth and what quantity of timber will grow orr the tract  in a given period.  Another object for which forest reserves are often set apart is that of  regulating water supply. It is well  known that in regions������������������ which'- have  been stripped of their timber the  streams in spring become torrents,  while during the summer the amount  of water flowing in them is much less  than it was during the periods before  the timber was removed. The value  of a supply of water, either for manufacturing purposes or for agriculture, depends on the constant flow of  the water. Obviously the easiest way  of ^keeping the flow of water constant  is to retain the forests, cutting only  the mature timber, which ought to be  removed anyway. In several of the  Dominion Forest Reserves, this question of water supply must play an  important part in, the management.  Besides these principal objects aimed at���������namely, the preserving of a  permanent timber and -fuel supply,  arrd the conservation of the water  supply, there are various other ends  to be aimed at. In some cases, for  instance, while these ^objects are the  primary ones, inhabitants of the forest region mate considerable money  from the summer visitors who come  there. But the former considerations  are usually head and shoulders above  any others that may be offered, and  must always be of prime importance  in the management of the forests.  ft  Starting Him In Business.

eighteen months to jail for stealing a dollar. He should have
stolen a few square miles of land

Murder at Vernon.
Joe Ethier died in Vernon New
year's morning from the effects of
a. bullet fired into him by Georce
McCalla on the previous Monday
evening. The men had been drinking, and Joe being quite a rough
josheri he exasperated McCalla by
making light of Americans while
at supper in the Victoria hotel.
After supper they met in the bar-.
McCalla pulled a .'52 revolver ont
of his pocket, tho weapon accidentally exploding as he pulled it
out, and the shot flew into the ceiling. Eithers started to run for
the door, and McCalla shot him
through the right shovlder, the
bullet, breaking a rib and entering-
the lung. Ethiers was 02 and McCalla is 6(>. McCalla will probably
hang for being so foolish as to carry
a gun in such a peaceful country
as the Okanagan, and drink whiskey at the same time.
