GREENWOOD, B. C.y THURSDAY, JANUARY-33,1 DOT.-.  i,H  Political Pointers  signal   for   applause from' every  quarter of the house.   lie spoke  '/;  i For weeks past the local Liberals' have been looking forward.to  last Saturday night's meeting: After Premier McBride was here and  ' plainly,    frankly    and-   honestly  stated his case, the  Liberal cry  went  up   "wait  till    Macdonald  comes 1"     We have waited.    Mr.  Macdonald has come and gone and  the  people  have heard his story.  It must be admitted that Mr. Macdonald made an able plea from his  standpoint, and many of his argu-  lu'e'nts'tnigbt have been effective in  getting deserting Liberals back to  the- ranks hud it not been that  Premier McBride when here,'grown  familiar with  the   Liberal  story.  told on many a platform with painful   reiteration,   anticipated   Mr.  Macdonald and clearly and definitely answered all t his would-be-  convincing arguments in advance.  But    regarding   this     particular  meeting called in Mr. Naden's interest,  it may  bo said that it was  not a success as a vote-getter, for  the Liberal-cause*  Dr. ' Mathison- presided and  promptly- launched the thundi-r  bolts. -  Mr; Naden was the first speaker.  His forte is not platform work at  his best and the manifestly hostile  attitnde of a large percentage of  -those present rather confused him.  ; Before he was. aware of it he was  drawn into a conversational debate  with the gallery, and most of the  time was consumed in clearing up  the tangle which- his', too zealous  mouthpiece, the Boundary Creek  Times had drawn. him into're that  vote of thanks from the Miners'  Union. The chief plea he made  for election was his record as  Mayor of Greenwood, but how effective that will prove on electors  from Midway aud west remains to  be seen.  Mr.   Deane, who came  on  the  platform with the look of the gladiator,    who   thinks   be    has   an  easy   thing, and   who essayed to  tell what he and Macdonald were  going to do did not receive a ven  good hearing,  and whether called  back by whispers from  his aeso-  . ciates on the stage or not cannot he  known, but so soon as begot order  enough to be heard announced that  he would retire in favor  of others.  Mr.   Dynes    was in his usual  form but got into a contrdver.-y  with Mr. Macdonald over the lat-  ter's conduct in the parliament at  Victoria."      Some   of his charges  were hardly sustained if Mr. Mac-  donald's words  are   to   be relied  upon.       Unfortunately      neither  gentlemen  had  the only   reliable  data���������the records of the House���������to  prove his position. He made the mistake, morevcr, iu thinking that as  a guest of- Mr,  Naden, he had a  right to. consume more than  his  allotted time in his argument and  for some time resisted tho clrvii -  man's request to sit down,   His  propheoy regarding Socialist success in. the elections in Germany  proved    unfortupate,    the   news  therefrom , having already reached  ���������town that the Gertnan Socialist*!  had lost abpi}t twenty seats in the  reichstajj.     Mr,    Macdonald^ was  ptrong enough fp stecu the tide of  opposition, to him, his courteous,  pleasjng and' p-jfjept" replies to the  people's catechism,  vyiunjng hiin  attention if no**; converts.   jfe disappointed liis following by npf trying.1 fa- fpal&e capiM qf tho alleged  Green  cpJBp^p.     Hi������ sijence on  fhis tpatier was a severe reproof to  Jus party, a remonstrance against  pqch iniHcrable tactics.       '  Mr,. Warren's  appearance >vas  briefly but pointedly basing his appeal for the 'support of the electorate "on- his personal record and  on the effective administration of  the " McBride government. His  plea briefly stated was this: The  Conservative goverhment has, in  three years brought order out of  chaos, has restored' confidence at  home and "''abroad in the province,  has notkept'up a constant tinkering with the mining laws thns'per-  mitting this one greatest local industry to. put itself on a< sound  basis, and has brought the province to a position where it can pay  as, it goes, and have a modest surplus .instead of a monstrous deficit  staring it in the face.  TO THE ELECTORS  Gentlemen,'" electors of Greenwood riding, on Saturday next.you  will be called1 upon to say what tl'e  government of the province shall  be for the immediate , future.  More, you will be called upon to  say whether you want to*bP free to  do .your own thinking, your own  voting, your own administration  of public affairs or whether you  prefer to let the great father at  Ottawa, him with the long arm, to  think for you.  Each of you was once a boy, subject to the domination of him who  said "my son do this" and you did  it.      But   when the day came that  you   reached   man's   estate,  you  were proud to take on. new responsibilities.      Better do  your own  thinking you said and run the risk  of an-occasional mistake, than forever abide- under him who desired  to   think both for himself and fcr  you.     In your decision  to think  for    yourself    you  showed    that;  you were fit for better things. Just  so   in "the  present political battle.  The great Grit father in effect says  to   you,   you are too young or too  ignorant, or too indiscreet to think  for yourselves,, and so he sends his  messengers,   the* great  wise ones  among you to cajole you, to control  you,   by flattery,  by promise, by  epecious  argument.      Be   not deceived. '   Not dread  of the ill-effects of Mr.   McBride's  past government   but   dread of the happy  effects it will have,  on the future  actuates your advisers.    Good government, administered  by even a  Conservative means more to 3 our  self and family  than allegiance to  the machine.    Do your own thinking.    Vote as you please regardless of  party  affiliations.     Don't  fear tho spotter,  don't dodge the  club.     Vote your convictions.    If  you think,  all  things considered,  McBride has given   \ou belter government than  you  ever knew before in  British  Columbia, vote to  retain him   in   power,   if   on tho  other hand you  think  tho.-e who  criticize him, but offer you nothing  in  return  would bo better for you  and   the country,   vote for them.  But above all be honest and independent about your vote, and don't  let the wise ones at and from Ottawa play political  ping-pong with'  your ballot,  :  Your independent  ballot is a sacred duty, not a more  privilege,  To ihe Electors: Saturday next you will be called  upon to decide whether you,will be represented by a  government or an opposition member. Giving them  all the doubtful seats, the Liberals cannot return more  than fourteen members to the next legislature, and  the Socialists five. This will give.'^he".McBride gov-  ernment 23 seats, or a clear majority of four over both  parties. As a business proposition, not taking into  consideration the excellent rlcord of the government,  is it to your interests to elect an opposition member?  Can you expect the same consideration to be shown  an opponent as would be to a supporter of the gov-  *������ *       * i  ernment ? There are roads to be made, bridges to be  built, and other publie improvements that a supporter  of the government will be in a better position to aid  than one opposed to it.

That  was admitted by the premier when  h^ro but to any thinking man was  justified. ��������� Ho found the province  with a depleted treasury,--- with  credit gone, with revenues far be  low required expenditure. The  people were asking for roads, and  trails and bridges and they had a  right to them. To get them required money. To get money the  government's only resource was  the great public estate. And so  the government set to work to  equitably distribute the burden.  It was unpopular because -" communities like to receive ancLnot to  pa}*, but it had to be done.  Bail road taxation wits increased  500 per cent.,increased revenues  were, taken   out of the product of  the forest aud the industry developed at home, tho mining tax was  nou lowered, and farm lands taxes  wero increased!    It was a necessity  admitted'and fully justified.   The  healthy   condition   of   provincial  business,  the improved provincial  credit aro the answers.  ' But Macdonald attempted to shew this all  needless, had the government taxed  the railway lands in the Bouudary.  lie admitted that tinder the terms  of the said lands yet they wero not  yet taxable but claimed they were  not because, the railway   had not  made such conditions attaching to  their  sale  as made such sale possible,    lie explained the terms and  conditions attaching to the sale and  said they   were many times more  onerous than  those of the govern-  niej't and sympathetically said the  purchaser   was   obliged to pay .for  his house logs,'the foiico posts, his  fjrowood, etc., and'that these conditions wero preventing their settle*  incut and thus keoping them-from  taxation.  "VVo have taken pains to look up  these alleged conditions of sale and  on. page 41, 43 ami 43 of the railway's book relativp to'such lands  we fine];    CANADIAN MOiriO' IUIWVAV BANDS  The Canadian Pacific Railway  company controls large areas of thc  and timber lauds in the Kootenay, ' Boundary, aud Okanagan  districts, as shown in red on the  map at the back of this pamphlet.  Generally speaking, the prices  for agricultural lands are as follows:  FIRST CLASS LAND"  Lands suitable for agricultural  purposes in their present"condition,  or which are- capable of being  brought under cultivation''profitably by the clearing of the timber  thereon, or which are hay meadow  lands.   Price 85.00 per acre.  SECOND CLASS  LAND  Lauds which are suitable for agricultural purposes only when irrigated.   Price $2.50 per acre.  TUIRD CLASS LAND   ���������  Mountainous and rocky tracts of  land, unfit for agricultural purposes other than as range land,  aud which cannot under any reasonable conditions be brought under  cultivation.    Price S1.00]per acre.-  Any land in the Columbia and  Western land grant (Boundary  district) which contains timber fit  for manufacture into lumber to thi?  extent of three thousand feet,board  measure, to the acre, does not come  under the heading of agricultural  land, and will only be disposed of  under tho provisions of thc company's regulations' for'the sale or  lease of timber lands. '  .  ... ' 'Tho purchaser of agricultural  lands will be permittcd'to use what  timber is actually required on the  land for buildings, fences and fuel,  but timber cut for sale will be subject to stumpago duties."  Tho leases of tho timber lands  call for the duties so pathetically  denounced: by Mr. Macdonald, as  applying to fiirm lands.  Now, did Mr, Macdonald ignor-  antly mistake the,case, or did he  wilfully misrepresent it? We do  not attempt to decide.  or improved policy he wonld adopt  if in power,, . Mr. Macdonald  mentioned' that he would create a  new administrative department,one  of immigration and labor,-  N"*nv , as  a lawyer, and a gentleman    who . desires   to   be leader  of a government, Mr, Macdonald  ought to know that such a depai t-  ment would only serve as an added  expense to the government and be  an additional, corner for the placing of some favorite.    It would be  a useless but expensive  wheel to  his coach, as all the .doings of such  department would be   subject to  Ottawa control.    But Mr. Macdonald appears, to want Ottawa to dictate our policy.  In verification of our position  we beg . to quota section 75 of the  British North- America Act:  "In each province the legislature  may make laws in relation to agriculture in the province, and to immigration into the province, and it  'is hereby declared that the parliament of Canada may make laws in  regard to agriculture in any or all  of the provinces, and to immigration into all or any of the provinces; and .any law of the legislature if a province relative to agriculture or to immigration shall  have effect in aud for the provinoo  as long'and as far o.nty.as it is not  repnghaut to any act of the parliament of Canada.

Caulfield returned from  Victoria- Sunday last to help the  Socialist cause' and- be present at  Liberal obsequies on Saturday. In  a conversation with 'the Ledge,  Mr. Caulfield said the Liberals  would probably elect one member  on Vancouver Island���������T. W.

The balance will retnrn Conservatives, giving the government seven  constituencies, the Liberals one,  Socialists two, Labor one, and oue  doubtful.

All the  Liberals of Greenwood  under the  control of-the machine and Pat accompanied Duncan���������seventeen and  one  onlooker.    The Conservative  speaker was repeatedly interrupted  and could   not finish his speech.  Duncan 'then   declaimed   for   an  hour or two,   but   he didn's say  why that $200 wasn't handed over  to the Liberal committee during  the   GalliherrMcKane-Foley   contest,   lie didn't state why he supported the Conservative candidate  iu   the   Mclntosh-Curtis   contest.

And so this regardless of any-  terms   or   conditions   that made  alienation difficult.     We certainly ,  must revise our  estimate of Mr.,  Macdonald which hitherto has been -  that he was an able conscientious, .  leader of men. .. *  That lratniffration Department  At last Saturday -night's meeting  in the Auditorium, in reply to Mr.  choicest furm,iDg,,.frujt, ranching Warren'schalU'iigoas to what now  ; Who Did It?

He didn't explain how a poor man could contest Yale-Cariboo and retain his  honor and independence. In fact,  there were many little incidents in  his short political and municipal  career that Mr. Eoss would: rather  not discuss.

NO TINKERING  ���������The statesmanship of Mr. McBride has manifested itself Juno  -way more conspicuously than in  -his leaving the .-mining laws and  filiations strictly alone. '. .  Iu the , days when pur Grit  /friends Fred Hume and Smith Cur-  jbis were administering the department of mines, mining men, and  mining corporations and mining  .capital wero so harried by repeated  .change of policy arid plan by the  government that no confidence  was felt in'the mining industry and  jlittle progress was made.' The  McBride government grasped the  situation. It said we cannot remit the two per cent, tax, but we can  jleave the industry undisturbed for  & period, however, and let it become established.  And mining men recognizing the  .wisdom of the new order of things,  Reeling assured that the new mining laws were to be stable, felt for  fthe first time that their capital was  ^afe. That feeling lent confidence  to their plans and as a result the  ^mining industry ol the Boundary  pidel by the improved price of copper has been put on substantila  basn. But no price of copper  final 1 have done it without the con-  jfide:ice inspired by the policy of  ���������jthe McBride government.  When the Emperor of Brazil via-  jted the Philadelphia. Exposition  and watched the rapid revolutions  of a great Corliss engine which  moved the machinery, he exclaimed  .'���������that machine makes more revolutions a minute than even the  >3 mth Ameaican republics."  But until the advent of McBride  jihe revolutions in British Colombia's mining regulations could  /Jiacount even .the great Corliss en-  ������ine>v .  GREEN'S RESIGNATION  Wilfrid gratify their desire.    No.  When the other day Mr. Ilyman,  who could not as yet have established very confidential relations  with the premier, decided he was  too sick to take the seat he had iu-  gloriously sought for, and the Conservatives asked why, did Sir Wilfrid take them into his confidence?  Did he? And yet with these and  other lessons on what their teacher  declares to be good form, the disciples in the west keep asking "why  did Green leave the Cabinet?"  victory in that conference even if  he did'nt condescend to accept the  sum held out to him.  He got on  record a resolution  which  in  brief says that owing to  ITS PERMANENT PHYSICAL CONDITIONS BRITISH COLUMMA IS ENTITLKU  TO     INCREASED     SUBSIDIES.       Some  day with McBride still at the helm  it will get what he so cleverly led  his associates to admit the province had a.right to.  Weary  Willie will be snowed  under in Vancouver.  There will only bo one Liberal elected on Vancouver Island���������  T. W. Patterson. Victoria will  return four Conservatives.  The Liberal candidate in this  riding explained only a part of his  municipal record at the meeting  Saturday night. The other part  also needs explanation.  THE SOLID SEVEN  Our Grip friend's are very anxious  /ibout <5ree*i's resignation and com.-  plain bjtterly that Mr. McBride  /loes pot take thcin into his confidence regarding the same. If they  were more conversant with the  /stiquetto of cabinets they Would  Jcnow that explanations; jj,re seldom  ���������vouchsafed as to why an officer of  $J*3 prown leaves the cabinet.  Just as the Globe was the Grit  bible and 'as such* sacred by them  until they recalled that it called  Mclnnes a scoundrel and untruthful, and until it applauded the wisdom of the McBride govern then t in  rpgard ��������� to the ' Kaien. Island land  sale, so Sir 'Wilfrid is the prophet  and teacher of this party, and  whajb Sir Wilfrid tliinkri rig}-t,tbey  fboi>fffi'c|*. Well, *did Sir Wilfrid  give on fixpbn ition for the retire-  jn/eijt from his cabinet of the Hon.  fJl/flford Sjflon ? No. When the late  Apdiw G. Blair'retired and the  Conservatives .faked  why, J did Sir  "The Solid Seven" so boastingly  referred to by our Liberal friends  in speaking of British Columbia's  representation in parliament, will  presently come to be applicable to  a new situation. Yale-Cariboo  supposed to be represented in parliament by Mr. Duncan Ross, is a  large district and the representative ought, at this moment be in  his seat in. Ottawa. But at the  behest of the Grit machine he is  having a holiday. He apparently  regards himself as servant of the  machine aud not of the people, and  is today absent from his parliamentary duties, not on the request  of his electors, but of the machine  of which he is a part.  But as we wero about to say,  Yal"-Cariboo is a, large district  aud within its confines seven representatives will be elected to the  local legislature next Saturday.  It looks now as if this seven would  be solid - for McBride. What will  our absent member feel like we  wonder when in the by and by  and his holiday is over he shall  wander back again, and be greeted  by Sir Wilfrid thus: ' "Another  solid seven I see,   but not for us."  Our Grit friends are wondering  whether Smith Curtis will condescend to sit on the same side of the  House with Mclnhes. Yes he  will, for they will both be on the  outside.           The machine has squared things  with R. G. Sidley. He has received an official communication  that a spur will be run from the  main line  his ranch.  of the V., V. &K, to  DID HIM NO REVERENCE  What must have been studied  design, not a mere accident, Mr.  Macdonald in his Greenwood address, made no mention whatever  of Mr. ' Mclnnes���������Lieutenant Mc-  Innes.  Is Mr. Mclnnes so unimportant a  part in the great Liberal design  that the captain can so overlook  his mate ?  Or is Mr. Macdonald so small  that he can possibly feel sore that  Mr. Mclnnes returned to aid in his  fight?  Or is Mr. Macdonald is so zealous for a cause he thinks great  that he disavows its desecration  by Mclnnes?  It would seem to have been better for his party, that is the party  he happens to be at present allied  with, if the Yukon whirlwind, had  been left to whirl on tho banks of  the Yukon. And by tho way the  Vancouver electors are going to do  a little whirling themselves with  Mclnnes next Saturday.  If our Liberal friends who  dubbed Mclnnes a whirlwind, had  called him a sirocco it would have  been more fitting, because the sirocco is a. hot air proposition pure  and simple, blowing over desert  wastes.    We congratulate Mr. Naden  that the results of the approaching  election will in no way interfere  with his plans of going north. If  elected he would feel embarrassed  in leaving his district" unrepresented, and so the electors will  take care and secure a representative that will always be on the  ground.    Very funny that story of how  Naden cornered McBride at Rock  Creek. Very funny the joke of  how McBride explained Green's  retirement. If our Grit friends  were not so anxious to prevent the  election of at least one of what will  be a solid seven in Yale-Cariboo,  they should see that the humor  of the thing is in this that McBride  finding' the ears of his Grit hearers  open for a story of Green, told  them of his efficiency as a minister  BETTER TERMS  The Liberals berate Mr. McBride  for his attitude oh the ''better  terms" question and affect now to  believe that "a better man would  have won, for the province, the  entire case wbich.Miv Macdonald  is said'tp cjajut he prepared so  carefully for Mr,. MpBride. And  yet do they forget tho boast the  leaden* made that Mr. McBride  could never win at Ottawa, against  a Liberal administration ?  Birr Mr.  McBride won a great  Candidate Dynes puts the case of  Socialistic and union opposition out  of court when in reference to his  flag he pleads it meant universal  brotherhood, the races of white,  yellow, brown, red and black all  having the same red color in their  blood. Unhappy brother Dynes,  very unhappy. Cut out either  the brotherhood plea as your excuse for the color, or cut out your  unhappy thrust at Mr. Macdonald  for stopping at an hotel which has  a Chinese cook as you said, but  which we may tell you has a white  cook.    After the drubbing he received  from Premier McBride at Armstrong, Duncan Ross, M. P., made a  bee line for home, and is now  stumping this riding accompanied  by as many Liberals as he can get  to root for him. He had a number of V., V. & E. employees, federal civil servants and other hoodlums at the Midway meeting Monday evening to prevent opponents  from giving their side of the argument. Duncan.is too cowardly to  face even local Conservative speakers on even terms.  When the provincial premiers in  conference at Ottawa, at the instance of Mr. McBride, passed the  resolution of British Columbia's  rights to greater recognition and  gave, undeniable reasons therefor, they gave Mr. McBride and  British Columbia a status that will  be admitted before any tribunal of  the empire. How Sir Wilfrid must  have smiled when he realized the  cleverness of the man from British  Columbia because great men admire greatness even in an opponent. '  TnE province of British Columbia  is no smaller today, and its remote  districts no less difficult to traverse  in winter, than it was in that glorious summer time when the election of Mr. Ross was deferred until the people of Yale-Cariboo could  be cajoled into line, and yet we see  the McBride government calling  elections in every riding on the  same da}'. The McBride government says let the people think'and'  then decide. The Ottawa machine  said let us decide, the electors in  Yale-Cariboo have no right to  think.      .  . The Issue Stated  The provincial government  stands for "better teams". By  this is meant a permanent addition  to the revenue of the province from  the federal treasury. This permanent addition would be available to all and every ministry that  might be in power in the province.  It would not be subject to the  whim of parliament from session  to session.  The opposition stands for larger  appropriations in lieu of better  terms. There would be nothing  permanent about these. They  weuld be subject from year to year  to the whim of the government of  tho day. They would not be available to assist the government of the  province in meeting the steadily  growing expense' of administering  the affairs of the province.  The province is entitled, to  larger annual appropriations, and  it has been shown over and over  again that justice is not done us in  that respect. The Liberals have  been in power at Ottawa for more  than ten years, and if they had  any intention of making oppropria-  tions, in keepingwith the contributions of this province to the Dominion revenue, they have had  ample opportunity to do so.  But the province is entitled to  special consideration because of the  exceptional difficulties attending  the carrying on of the government  by reason of geographical conditions. This, coupled with the fact  that the people of British Columbia are exceptionally large contributes to the federal revenue,  constitutes the basis of the claim  for better terms.  Larger appropriations have nothing to do with better terms.  This is the issue between the  two parties. The Conservatives  claim better terms an J larger appropriations; the Liberals will be  content with larger appropriations  alone.  Upon this issue there can be no  doubt where the very great majority of the people of British Col-  stand. In fact, until Mr: Macdonald defined his position, we do  not suppose that there was any difference of opinion in the province  in respect to better terms,  Mr. Macdonald has gone back  on his own record on this question.  He has done so after consultation  with Mr. Mclnnes. That gentleman came from Ottawa with instructions. Do we do him an injustice when we say that the support of Ottawa to his political  schemes was contingent upon the  abandonment of the claim for better terms? We cannot prove that  it was; but the known facts point  that way.���������Colonist.

To secure sympathy  at'tho start, is very often tho secret  of success.  There wa's,  for "instance, a distracted  fellow  who entered a grocer's shop inid said:  ,��������� I believe I am an injured husband,  sir,  and I desire to verify  my suspicions by watching a house  in the next street.    Bur I can do  this safely ouly from the rear of  of your shop, '   Will you be good  enough to let ma sit by .the open  window there for half an hour. ?  .   The   grocer,   patting the man's  shoulder in kindly fashion, said:  '. To   be   sure, my friend.    Make  yourself at home, and good luck to  you.  Some time passed.- Then the  jealous husband ��������� rushed through  the shop, rolling his ej*es aud muttering:  I'll kill her I I'll go home and  get the gun and kill her now ! ',  Your wife? asked the grocer.  Yes, ��������� groaned the man. My  false wife; my adored May. I cannot doubt her guilt, and before sundown I shall be a murderer.  The grocer tried to detain Him,  but he got away. Nothing happened in the way of murder for an  hour or more, and then, a little  disappointed and . suspicious, the  grocer made an investigation in  the back of the shop, to find that  there had been passed out through  the open window, three tubs of  butter, a crate of eggs, two bags of  flour and a dozen haras.���������Butte  Intermountain.  if you want to hold down hero you  join the Masons.

MARSHALL, Prop,  Story of Dr. Guthrie  The keenness- of the Scotsman's  grip on Siller, says the Glasgow  Evening News, is seldom used as a  text upon which to base a few re-  remarks, and was done in an exceedingly pawky manner by Mr.  Guthrie, at the opening of the  Springbank TJ. F. church bazaar.  This'well-known banker possesses  much .of the charming humor that  was characteristic of his father,' the  late Rev. Dr. Guthrie.' On one occasion, he related, he was sitting  at a coroner'sinquest at Liverpool,  where an enquiry was taking place  into the circumstances attending  the death by drowning of a man in  tho Mersey. The >body had been  recovered by a Scotsman, and the  judge asked him:if he did nothing  to resuscitate the body." Being a  Scotsman- (Mr. Guthrie-said) the  witness at once emitted a stentorian  Eh." The question was',repeated,  anil then it's purport seemed to  dawn on the exile, as he' inwtantly  responded. Aye, I searched, his  pockets.  -  He" Joined Both  Sam Jones used to tell the following story of how he came to  join the.

I  had all the money me and my  friend both had.- Ho didn't have  any. They got miue and we got  off at the, next..station. That was  whon I was a sinner and that was  twenty five years ago. ^JJe was a  steward , in.. the Methodist church  and I was a common sinner. When  we got off at the station and  strolled������������������' around there awhile, he  said, Sam, I wonder if there is. a  Mason* in this town. I said, a  Mason ? * I can get some money if  lean find a Mason. I says, ain't  you a Methodist? Oh,-shucks, he  says,' I go to'the Masops, and he  struck out, but in a few minutes  came back. How did yoii come  out? All right, he says, I got it.  Whom did you get it from? A  Mason.

Here is an old one that is good:  If a father gave one of his sons  19 cents and the other C cents,  what time would it be?.  The. answer is, Quarter to two.  - And here is one of more recent  birth:  If a postmaster went to a menagerie and was eaten by one of the  wild beasts, what would be the  hour?  Perhaps you'll have to think  thts over a little, yet the answer is  very simple. It is 8 p. m., of  course.  Learn to Say "No."  The ability to say "No"���������to refrain from going with the crowd to  decline to go down the stream���������is  the mark of a. man with strong  character. Such a man is going to  succeed, although he may find it  hard to withstand the gibes and  jeers ��������� and criticisms of his actions.  Our old friend, the law of compensation, comes in here again, for,  in proportion as the man has ability to say "No" and the courage of  his convictions, he is singled out  among the few chosen ones, and  success is already within his grasp.  The manager, of one of the biggest  breweries in the United States has  not tasted liquor of any kind for  over twenty years. There is a  whole sermon in this statement.

ISA\C  ������.  w. hinton "      ":  In the Year 1950      ,  An interesting forecast of what  sanitary science may have  accomplished in the year  1950 was , given in a paper (taken  as read owing to shortness of time)  by Mr. W. Stansfiold of Manchester, at a recent sitting of the  Sanitary Inspectors' Congress at  Blackpool. The .first part of the  paper was in tho form of a document dated 1950, when, it seems,  we will have advanced so far that  among other blessings���������  The average span of life will  have been lengthened by nearly  ten years.  The weight of the people will  have increased 11 pounds per individual.  The stature will have advanced  materially.  The chest measurement expanded by at least two inches.  People enjoy robust health invariably to a good old age.  Consumption be almost extinct.  A case of cancer a rarity.  Scarcely a man unfit for service  in the army.  Smoke nuisance extinct.  Artificial heat will have superceded domestic fires.  Very few fogs, and these not  dangerous.  No, said Burton Holmes, it  doesn't do to get swelled head and  think you're indispensible to the  welfare of this world.  I was in the lobby of a big hotel  in Cincinnati when a 'bus load of  traveling salesmen came from the  station.

Ah,said one of them to the clerk,  its a good thing your'e on deck,  Uncle Dave; I don't think the  house could run without you.  Couldn't it, just! said Uncle  Dave. You fellows would come  in here, and if there was a strange  clerk, you'd say, where's Uncle  Dave ?  And the clerk would say, why,  didn't you hear ? He died a month  ago.
