COPPER STREET, GREENWOOD  FOOLED THE HOGS.      ;  A commercial traveler driving- from  town to town through Ihe pine woods of  Florida saw a drove of emaciated razor-  back hogs rushing wildly from tree to  tree. He halted at the pollings.-of a  "cracker's" home, and asked a woman in  & miuboiiiict what was the matter with  i>  the swine. "Well, you see," the woman  explained, "my old man is deaf and  dumb, and when he wanted to call  the hogs to their- swill he: learned them  to come when he tapped oii one of the  trees. It worked rvll right when they  first got learned/but now them woodpeckers is making the poor things run  their legs off."  At tbe speedy trial before Judge  Brown, iu Greenwood, last Friday,  Beyan Singh, a Sikh Hindoo, was  charged with assaulting another  Hindoo, at Ebolt, and robbine  him of 680.   ,  It was'brought out in evidence  thnt Hindoos in this province  live  011 from  $5 to 87 a month, and  that they  had  in  the bank from  8500 to 82.S0O each.   Some have  from one to three bank accounts,  all saved in three or more years.  The most sensational piece of evidence was given by George T. Moir  the C P.R. agent' at Grand Forks!  who appeared on behalf of the accused, and swore under oath  that  Beyan  Singh  was the very   best  man, either black or white, that he  ever had work under him since he  had been in the employment of the  C. P R.  It was also brought; out that a  Hindoo coal contractor, Cathor  Singh, a friend of the'accused, had  earned as much as $240 in a tingle,  month unloading coal by contract,  and as much as ������82 in nine days  for himself. *  It was also brought out that the  accused had $1,200 in  the Royal  Bank: and that ho* had previously  served two months at hard labor in  Nelson jail   for   theft  at   Grand  Forks.   Judging from tho evidence  it looked as though,   iu  this case,  Beyan  Singh   was the victim of a  conspiracy by his own countrymen,  who do not wear the same kind of  a turban, or follow the same employment in their native land.   An  interpreter,   who  was formerly in  the Bombay police,   was brought  from tho coast to; make it possible  for ihe court to  understand  the  case, as Hie Honor, Judge Brown  is not familiar with the language  of the Hindoo.  In this trial, it was evident that  there was considerable lying,  as  live witnesses gave evidence that  flatly contradicted the stories  of  the affair as told by other five.  The trial lasted two days,  and is  important as forshadowing future  trouble for the B. C. courts, if the  cow-worshipping   descendants   of  Ananias begin to put up jobs upon  those of their own race who  wear  different colored turbans.     In this  case the prisoner was found guilty  of assault, but as he had already-  been twelve days in jail, and it had  not been proved that he stole the  880, the court discharged him.

During |  these    early    years    of    their    career  Spooner would confer w.'th his friend  coinplnhiiiif- of what he called rhe sin  pidity of i hose iiiunediaiely over him  ���������.-iuiliiif-  becaiKo  lie  found   It   ditliculi  ro make ihem understand Hint he dis  covered ways of doing things quicker,  plainer,    more   correctly    than    they  (ill-sou would say:  "Ue patient.

"You're always right  about everything, but It's niighly hard  to see things going wrong when a  suggesiion from me would right it and  I nor make the suggestion."  "How do you know they would np  predate. itV And wouldn't they be  liable to tell you to keep your place  and mind your own business. If you  were iu their place would you listen  'to suggestions from them?'"  "I listen to .suggestions  from  iheuT  Not much;"  "All things come to Ibos-j who wait."  Hob Spooner could not help feeling  himself a  iK'lier man than his friend  in cvcryihing except patience, genrle-  ncss,  endurance.     lie did   not  expect  I.ars to  make much  headway  in  the  world:   Indeed,   lie   was  ambitious i{o,  make  n  success   for  hirm-elf  that   he  might share it wilh the man he luved  it was nor long before Spooner broke  away  from his employers and set up  for himself.    He had  uo capital,  hut  had   a   capacity   for   inspiring   confidence,    lie sui-cecdod from the siart.  F'-ith young  men  married.    Spooner  wedded a girl who saw in liim a means  to acquire wh.-it  was (he wish of her  life���������social  prominence.    Gibson  married n girl who loved money for money's sake rather than what she could  a (-quire witli  it.    Mrs.  Spooner spent  all  her husband's  Income.    .Mrs.  (Jib-  son   ext-rled   herself   to   prevent   her  husband from giving away all his family did uot   positively  require.     From  the time of their marriage tlielr wives  stepped into their shoes and enacted  the  bain nee of their lives   for them.  No. not all; at the end they acted for  themselves.  It was their desire that their wives  should fuel as warm a friendship for  each other as was theirs. Spooner. with  his natural enthusiasm, expected this;  Gibson, with a certain longlicadeducss  or horse seuse, knew that It could not  be. There was nothing to bring the  two womeu together���������indeed, there  wus that to drive them apart. Each  wife was Jealous of I lie Influence ex-  erred by her husband's friend. "It is  singular," .Mrs. Spooner would say.  "how you can see so much lu that dull  fellow*. You are more capabl? in every  way." And Mrs. Gibson would say.  "Your friend Spooner looks down on  you; he considers himself vastly your  superior."  Spooner made money so rant that the  very rapidity of ills accumulations accelerated his accumulative desires. Just  as a man owning au automobile that  will do forty miles an hour desires oue  that will do sixty. One morning the  newspapers announced the full tiro of  a large and long established banking  house. It wns rhe signal gun for the  opening of a commercial panic. The  house of Spooner & Co. went down In  the crash, and (lie head of tlie lirrn was  obliged to take the benefit of the bankruptcy law.  For   two   or   tlrree   years   valuc9  shrank.   Gibson,   who had saved���������or,  rather, whose wife had sared-consld-  eruble money, saw an opportunity to  buy property cheap nnd made In vestments which when the financial pendulum   Rwung  to   the  olher  extreme  made him   rich.    Meanwhile  Spooner  was fi-peln-; himself from the wreck of  it's business and when he hud done so  found himself more than forty years  old,   without   the  phyclcnl   pnergy  of  youth with which to make a new beginning and without a dollar of capital.  ills old friend called on blni and  (will: , '  "Bob. I can let you have J'JO.OOO on  a tiomliial Interest und without security. 1 would double It; but, you see.  my wife <.ud children have their claim-  on me, and I don't feel thut I have tho  right to do more."  Spooner grasped his friend's hand,  but sir Id nothing fur a time, then told  Gibson he would coirsider the timtier  When .Mrs. S[K>ouer heard of the olfer  she advised her Inisbaiid to accept It.  but showed such unlngorrlsm to the  donor that Spooner resolved to decline  the loan. Indeed, the sum was not  large enough to put hlru ou his feet as  he wished, and he preferred to manipulate certain banks wilh which he had  done business to raise twenty times  the amount. lie failed in this ami was  obliged to lake a subordinate position  In (lie employ of another.  Gibson was now very prosperous,  lie bud never made money fast except during the recovery from the  panic, when the values of tlie property he bad bought expanded as rapidly us they had contracted. His wife  set up a carriage and two or three  automobiles. Tlie couple purchased  the Spooner home that Spooner might  redeem It when again able to do so.  Hut as time passed it did not appear  that Spooner would ever he able to do  so. Had it not been for the Influence  of Gibson's, wife he would have yielded to his affection for his old friend  and offered to deed tbe place back to  him.  And now en me one of those combinations of ciri umsiances calculated to  drive apart  instead  of weld   together  ttiose who love.    Robert Spooner as a  young man had desired to accumulate  partly  that  he might   help the  friend  whom he looked upon as his inferior  Tie now saw  that   inferior In a  posi  lion to help him.    Had lie beeu uiiiu  fluenced   lie   might   have   stood   the  strain   occasioned   by   jealousy.     But  Mrs. Spooner. disappointed in not being able to retain the grip she had secured  on  society   smarting at seeing  tlie   man    whose   Influence   over   her  husband   she  had   disliked   successful  while Spooner was a failure, begun a  series  of  Innuendoes against   Gibson  These had no effect at first, but, being  followed up pertinaciously, at last in  fected the subject on whom she work  ed..  Finally Rpoonrr. seeing a rare op  portunity. made a desperate effort tr  Interest certain men with capital, succeeded and wilh one of these brilliant  strokes for which lie had formerly  been remarkable made a fortune. As  soon as Gibson heard of (he fact lie  sent n note to his friend offering to  sell him his former home.at tlie price  he had paid for it, which wan about  half its present valuation, l'.ut the  poison was iu Spooner's blond, and he  replied curtly that the place would  not now be commensurate with hi������-  altered fortunes.    .  From that time there was a contin  tied effort on tlie part of the Spooiiers-  lo flaunt their position in tlie face of  tlie Gil-son'*- that is, on tlie part of  Mrs. Spooner. What her husband did  wns inspired by her. Rut this Gibson  didn't know, and he felt his old  friend's antagonism keenly. Thc  Spooners grew richer, nnd the richei  they grew Uie more they snubbed the  Gibsons. Mrs. Ppooner's chief desire  seemed lo be to make them understand that while they had thotisnndk  the Spooners had millions nnd ilu>i  there was as wide a difference in (he  social position of the (wo families ns  there was in their financial position.  And so ir came that ihe two friends  drifted apart. I'.oili retired from busi  ness. and both were old men. Neitliet  had any use for (he money he had  accumulated beyond a bare living.  Whatever enjoyment there was in  wealth was derived by their families  Friends had dropped away, and tlie  old men were companionable with uo  one. One evening while Mrs. Spooner  was cuterlaining a house full of guests  her husband, letting himself oui  through a back door, walked into the  street. lie felt the desolation of a  homeless man.  Passing a cafe that had been iu the  same location for half a century, where  he and Gibson had in their youth met  for a bite, n glass of beer and to tail;  over their affairs, he was seized with  a melancholy desire to go in and sit in  the old familiar seat. As be approached the stall he found it occupied  by an old man. Fie was about to pass  on when lie heard his name spoken.  Turning, he saw the veteran in the  booth looking at him intently.  "Bob!"  "Lars!"  They sat side by side, as they had  done when boys Just entering upon  their careers, remaining for a - time  hand In hand like two lovers. The past  was not referred to.  "Lars," "said Spooner, "here we are  In the place from which -we started,  successful in the end nnd unable to  enjoy the results of our success. The  only marked effect it has had has been  to separate us. What use was there ln  thc struggle after nil?"  "Without tlie interest we took in It  ���������we would have always been what we  are today���������men without life. Our children are enjoying it, or at least they  think they are. but I doubt if their  lives have the intensity in them that  ours have had. We love our wives and  them, but there is a different affection  which they cannot supply���������it Is that  which -we feel for each other."  The place had run down since they  were thero as boys, but It was all they  requlred. They met often during the  remainder of their lives in that old  booth, before which a curtain could be  drawn to shut them from the view of  others.

Should the settlers be successful in  their appeal for Government aid toward securing the extermination of  the wild cattle bands of the Masset  district, it will not be the first time  that the Parliament of British Columbia has subsidized the slaughter of  animals classed domestic, but which  have reverted to savagery.

Mr. Aitken's Childhood.  They say that in some cases the  greatness of a man has been in a  measure forecasted by some little incident of his childhood. Perhaps that  is true concerning this incident of the  younger days of W. M. Aitken, the  young Montreal financier who was  elected to the British House of Commons a few days ago. But perhaps  there's no link between the incident  and the proud position attained by  Mr. Aitken.  "Well, when Mr. Aitken was six years  old his father, a Presbyterian minister, was stationed in Vaughan Township, York County, Ont. The child  was of the energetic type that are always busy. One day he was out of  sight all morning, and the rest of the  household wondered what had become  of him. No, you couldn't hit it in  ten guesses.

In qualifying for the "Award of  Merit," tlie next to the highest award  of the Royal Life Saving Society, three  members of the University of Toronto  Swimming Club, recently gave a remarkable exhibition of skill and endurance.  To pass the prescribed test a swimmer must prove his ability, while in  his clothing, to tow a person a distance of at least 60 feet, and immediately afterwards to swim 600 yards,  demonstrating different strokes. The  candidate then has to undress upon  the surface, and leaving the water,  perform neat diving from various  heights. He also has to recover an  object sunk to the bottom, and demonstrate ability to perform various  feats of ornamental swimming. Needless to say, those who successfully  pass such a test are well capable of  looking after themselves, or of assisting others in the water. The society  also grants other awards for tests not  requiring so much strength and skill.  Four-year-old Barbara went to  church with her two sisters and came  home crying.

A university is never free from excitement or amusement of some kind.  The latest tid-bit of news from Toronto is tlie adventures of a certain second-year man's trunk. This sophomore lives in ono of the residences,  and the troublo with his trunk threatened for a time to stir up another serious disturbance. Fortunately, however, things cooled down, and no suspensions or expulsions resulted.  It had bcerr claimed that the young  gentleman irr question had paid rather  too frequent visits to Queen's Hall,  tho women's residence. The other men  were either jealous or disgusted. At  any rate, they determined to have a  joke.  Tliey took advantage of the fcopho-  more's absence one evening (it happened this time that he was not at  Queen's Hall) to carry his trunk from  the residence to Queen*3 Hall. It  was a heavy load, which required the  services of eighteen men. They didn't ail carry it at once, but relieved  each other in relays. Along Hoskin  avenue and across Queen's Park they  struggled  with their  burden.  In the meantime, one of the men  had 'phoned to a lady friend in the  Hall, to inform her of tlie approaching cavalcade, and to ask the girls to  be ready to receive the visitors. The  girls, when they heard tlie news,  crowded to tlie windows, but when  they saw the eighteen men approach,  their courage failed them, and with  one mad rush they started for the  stairs. Thc bearers of the trunk opened the door of the Hull, and entered-  without the hint of faltering. The'  leaders saw two girls madly disappearing at the head of the stairs, and  heard the rush of many feet above.  The boys left the trunk in the middle of the parlor floor, and went  home. The girls soon came downstairs again, and began to open the  trunk, which was unlocked. Alas poor  sophomore! His inmost secrets were  to be exposed! With cruel avidity,  tlie maidens ransacked that trunk  from top to bottom, and brought to  light 'many strange and wonderful  things���������more varied than the contents  of the proverbial small boy's pockets  ���������and more interesting.  The story, of course, began to be  known "around the halls," and at last  reached the ears of the member of  the faculty in charge of thc residence  from which the trunk was taken.  For a time it looked as if there was  going to be trouble and a series of  wholesale expulsions. A meeting was  called, however, and an amicable settlement reached.  The trunk is back in the owner's  room.  INFLUENZA '.  CATARRHAL FEVER,  LPINK EYE ."  EPIZOOTIC  ..      :\* ,  DISTEMPER   ".

This firm were in the habit of  taking the building records from the  various papers and sending a circular  letter to each builder with regard to  insurance on his structure. These  printed records were hand-d over to a  stenographer, who was supposed to  write an individual letter to each. The  letters were signed in a perfunctory  way by one of the member.* of the  firm. As a result one of those letters,  telling all about the firm's ability tn  handle fire insurance, was sent to the  City Clerk of London, Ont., which  corporation was building, a solid cement bridge over the River Thame.-*.  The information as to the amount <A  fire insurance which the city of I/melon is likely to carry on this structure has not yet reached the oflice of  thpsfi clever Toronto insurance men.  Must Change Name Again.  Ontario has almost forgotten the  story of David Kidd,K the Toronto  evangelist, who, for the rescue in Chicago of the daughter of an Australian  millionaire from a life of shame, was  to be presented with thousands of  dollars for the building of a rescue  home for women in Toronto. The  daughter died, and the Australian millionaire adopted David Kidd as his  son on the condition that he take his  adopted father's name.  Accordingly, h deed poll was secured  nt Osgoode Hull, and David Kidd became David Burn. Then David Burn  set sail for Australia to get the money  for the great work in Toronto.  The story is recalled by the announcement at Osgoode Hall that another deed poll has been secured to  change his name again, He finds that  he should be Burrrs, instead'of Burn,  and to effect the change the wheels  of the legal machinery had to be set  in motion iu?uin.

The question of a Chair of Ceramics in the University of .Toronto is  being discussed again. The Canadian  Pottery Association, at its annual session recently, recommended the establishment of such a chair.  President Falconer, when interviewed, would not commit himself in  regard to the subject.  "It is a matter," he said, "which  has been under consideration for several years. We recognize" that it  would be a good move to establish a  Chair in Ceramics, and until now, we  have done nothing, simply because  there are so many pressing needs that  we have to take each in turn."  "If such a chair were established,"  asked the reporter, "would it be in  connection with the Faculty of Applied Science?"  "Yes," replied the president.

Walking down# the street one Sunday morning feeling at peace with  himself and the world and particularly benevolent, due perhaps to the Sabbath feeling in the air but more probably to the frock coat and top hat he  was wearing, he saw coming towards  him two small urchins the older of  whom,���������a boy of perhaps ten or eleven years,���������was puffing vigorously at  a cigarette. As they drew near the  doctor placed his hand on the shoulder of the youthful smoker and said  in his best paternal manner "My boy,  do you know that if you smoke cigarettes while so young you will never  grow up to be a big man?" Immediately the smaller urchin piped up,  "But 'e's going to be a jockey, sir."  Was J. J. Hill's Boss.  William M. Smith, a prairie pioneer,  is dead at Portage la Prairie, aged 70.

It was Mr. Laurence Irving, who it  appearing with such success at the  Garrick Theatre, London, in "Tlie Unwritten Law," who created a sansa  tion in New York at the beginning of  this year by making a speech from  the stage dealing with the unfairness  of dramatic critics, and some time  previously he was called to account  by exports for saying that the public  did not want genuine drama. "If actors only aimed low enough," ho said,  "sprinkle'd their plays with innuendoes, and smeared them over with  gore, they would find a large public-  at their back." By.the way, Mr. Irving, who, of course, is the younger  son of the late Sir Henry Irving,  strongly objects to being boomed as  the son of that famous actor. "The  fact is one of which ,1 am so very  ' proud," he says, "that I could only  think poorly of a son who allowed hU  father's name to be used as a box-  office appendage to himself."  , World's Greatest  Bridge-Builder.

Tine Government of Canada has  erred in bringing np the question  of reciprocity with the United  States without first taking a vote  of the people upon sueh an important question.  Tiiekk are 1,051 places licenced  to sell liquor by the glass in Montreal, and itisnot necessary to pack  a bottle when visiting the largest  city of Canada.

If the  council of that city would build an  umbrella over the entire place, and  BURRELL'S SPEECH.  It has been  remarked  in   this  province that Martiu Burrell was a  pleasing speaker, too timorous  to  be  useful.    His work  at Ottawa  proves that he is  not particularly  bashful or timid,   especially  when  it   conies   to   discussing   matters  bearing upon  the welfare of  the  western fruit farmers.    In tho reciprocity debate he  made a most  valuable and importaut speech.   It  is  110  light  task   for   anyone   to  follow Mr. It. L. Borden jvnd Hon.  G. E. Foster but it may be said  without flattery that Mr. Burrell's  speech was not surpassed by those  who preceded him.    He lacks the  scathing   invectivo   and   vitriolic  sarcasm of Foster and the flashes  of   eloquence   which   characterise  Mr. Borden  at his  best.    But no  member of the House has a better  parliamentary   manner   tban   the  member   for. Yale Cariboo.     His  speech  in  the reciprocity   debate  was followed closely  by members  on  both sides of the House.    It  was recognized thafc he would speak  on the fruit-growing industry with  the authority of an expert.     From  1SS3 to  1899  Mr.   Burrell was a  successful  fruit-grower in the Niagara district; siuee  then   he has  been one of the leading men in the  rapidly growing fruit industry  of  British Columbia.     He was not to  be put oil* by Sir Wilfrid Laurier's  suggestion "that  Montreal   melons  could bo had at Delmonico's.  Mr.   Burrell  did  not  view   the  question    of   reciprocity   from   a  purely commercial standpoint.   He  admitted that his opposition   was  not entirely based on the injury to  the fruit industry. This only made  all the stronger the array of faces  and figures which he presented  to  prove that tho Fieldiiig-Knox arrangement would deal a deathblow  to the Canadian fruit  industry in  the Niagara district and  on" the  Pacific coast.    Mr.  Patersoii,  the  Minister of Customs,   learned   to  his sorrow that Mr. Burrell   knew  what he was talking about.    In  1907 the inini-iter from his place in  the House had declared in favor of  a tariff against American fruit. He  tried  to  explain  this  during Mr.  Burrell's speech by saying that at  that time the United States maintained a tariff against   Canadian  fruit  while under the reciprocity  arrangement fruit would be on the  free list of both countries.     In reply Mr. Burrell  pointed  ojut  that  the fruitgrowers could nofc'becompensated for the loss of  the home  market by the removal of the American duty.   During the past year  for example the Canadian tariff has  been  higher  than   the   American  tariff yet we imported six times as  much fruit as we imported.  Mr. Burrell was especially strong  in dealing with the situation oi  British Columbia. .To deprive the  British Columbian fruit-grower of  his market in the prairie provinces  be declared was to destroy his  business. "Whatever may be said  as to other schedules it is most unlikely that; any reply will be foimd  to Mr. Burrell's arraignment of  the gross injustice to Canada perpetrated by the fruit schedule an-  '.ON    PARLE   FRANCAIS.  if  .GREENWOOD,   B.'C.

Rev.William Mordaunt Furneaux,  dean of Winchester, has been entrusted by the convocation of Canterbury with the task of preparing  an abridgement of the Ten Commandments to be submitted for  consideration at a meeting of the  convocation iii May.  '  The convocation is now sitting  in Westminster under the presidency of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and has had before it,  among other matters, a proposal to  modify and shorten the second,  fourth and tenth commandments,  and it is with these three that ilio  dean of Winchester will be concerned.  As a sample of the form which  the abridgement will take, the  dean said today that probably he  would suggest that tho tenth com  simply, ''Thou shalfc not, covet."
