The occasion was a meeting to elect Conservative delegates  for   the   nomination   meeting   in  Greenwood.    Whether it was due  to the persuasive powers* of Mr.  Farmer,  to   the   oratory   of   Mr.  Nicholson, or to other influences  not in evidence, we know not; yet  such old, tried and "trusty Liberals  as Tom 'Hanson, Wm. Eddy and  H. Kayes came, as it were, to the  Conservative   penitent   form   and  (glory bo to Jackson !) joined the  Conservative *   Association.      We  were also pleased to see so many  of   our   brethren,   unable   to   be  present in body, yet showed their  presence in spirit,   by sending in  their written testimonies in favor  of Mr.  Jackson in  the   form   of  votes   by  proxy.      After  a   few  pathetic words by Convert Eddy,  with regard to those poor invalids  who were too sick to come aud  register   their   votes ��������� a  speech  which moved his audience nearly  to tears���������the ballot was taken and  the delegates elected.

McDonald says:  -���������Tebecee    claims    that    Rock  Creek has not found much favor  in   the   eyes   of   the   Almighty.  Probably the vaporings of Tebecee  have blinded  Him  to the  many  beauties of the place.    Now, Tommy, all the people of Rock Creek  do not get their money from  the  old  country,  so  8400 or $500   a  year is quite a pile to offer for the  redemption of  their souls.     Personally, I do not believe that the  people of Rock Creek are in* need  of a pastor of any  denomination.  Most of them cau have a little fun  without being personal, and never  criticise   the   Almighty   for   His  treatment of Rock" Cieek, although  I believe that they fervently wish  that He would remove you  from  among   them,    but. ' being   good  Christians, they bow their beads  and   accept    their    punishment,  Tommy.      Oh,   Tebecee 1     Why  should you take a delight in attacking M.r.; Middleton ?    I   f-ay  without hesitation that he is your  peer in every good human  trait.  Mri Middleton has the confidence  of   the  road   superintendent ami'  always   does   good   work,    (Dan  Patterson-says that Billy  is  the  best road builder in the province-  Ed.), so I do not see that you havo  any right to laugh at him.''

In  China, through drought and   flood  3,750,000 human beings are starving and will perish this spring and  summer if relief does  not come.  In  Canada foodstuffs  worth  millions of dollars aro spoiling because  the crops were  too heavy  for tho  railways to ship to thc east.    And  this is happening while the Chinese  nation  is  in tho  agonies of a now  political    With.    Has   the    world  ever beheld such an appealing need  as in China, or so urgent a call lor  '���������'first aid" to the suffering as that  which comes to Canada?   Tho facilities  for shipping grain westward  to the Pacific and on to China are  better than for  sending it  east  to  the   Atlantic.    To   savo this unusable surplus from wanton waste  and to send it where it is so sorely  wanted is our first and   most compelling   national    duty.

He was greeted with mingled cheers  from the Scout organization and  hoots and cat calls from  a certain  element of the local Socialist organization,    The General was not permitted  to proceed far with his address before interruptions from the  Socialist group forced him to stop.  The General then invited some ��������� of  the Socialists to ask questions regarding the movement,    Question  after   question  was   fired   at the  General, who promptly answered  his inquisitors.    It seemed  to be  tho impression of   the Socialists,  judging by the nature of the questions nsked, that the Scout movement was antagonistic to the labor  movement and  based   on   purely  military principles and for rn Hilary  purposes.    At   the conclusion  of  his address, General Baden-Powell  called upon tho Socialists to send  some of their speakers to the platform.-   After    several   had   been  heard, one of the Socialist speakers  volunteered   tho   statement   that  western  Socialists had misunderstood  tho  purpose  of the  Scout  movement,    and    expressed    the  opinion that thc organization would  result  in   building   up  a   better  nation.

ARN0TT & MINE  ProtDrfetors  Mabel.and Ihad, known one another  since as' children-'we had played together. The friendship of our childhood had ripened into a love that was  little short of .Ideal, and when she was  nineteen ��������� I being her senior by  four or five years ��������� we' were married.  I was an orphan, and had spent many  years on-the Continent; her parents  wore-wealthy, and wtih them she had  (���������������������������avelled much. Thus it happened that  ,we were both familiar with the  European capitals, , watering-places,  and winter resorts, and determined���������  as we had neither of us crossed the,  Atlantic���������to spend tlie , winter and  the following summer in the new  world. So a few days ' after our  wedding we found ourselves on board  'the Royal' Mail steamship Arcadia,  our. faces turned toward the setting  sun,' looking forward in joyful anticipation t'o the novel scenes we were  to witness together.  The passage began by being a rough  one, but we were both excellent sailors, and enjoyed its opening days.  There was only one cloud in the  horizon of our happiness, and that  ���������foolish as It may^ seem���������was Mabel's  fear o'f the sea.     '    .   -  "Eugene,. pray that the ship does  not go down in the night."  One night we had retired as usual,  and certainly tho sea was awfully  rough. It took even me, hardened as  I was, some timo to get to-sleep. I  was 'awakened by Mabel rapping on  .th'e side of my berth and crying out:���������  "Eugene; Eugene! what le the matter?"  I1 roused myself ,and listened. Certainly a dull, roaring sound filled the  ship���������a banging 'and splashing which  drowned the noise of the propellers.  A-little alarmed myself I jumped out  of,my berth, and telling Mabel to keep  quiet, I went out into the passage,  i I ran into the arms of a scared,  white-faced Stewart,- of whom I inquired the cause of the commotion.  "The ship's sinking!",* he. cried.  "Haven't '"they roused you? They're  manning the boats up there on deck."  ,. It was true. Isolated as we were  in our state-room we had been forgotten. Assuming as careless an air  as I could summon up'on the moment,  I returned to our state-room, where  Mabel lay iln an agony of alarm.  "Well, little woman," I said, "the  curtain Is rising on" your long-looked  for-drama. The ship is going down,  but there's no particular hurry and  no cause whatever for alarm."  - I helped her, and dressed myself,  putting some papers and valuables  into.my-pockets, and then, fastening  the life-preservers round myself and  her, we sent up on deck. We had  Indeed been forgotten! The last boat  was just preparing to leave the ship  with the captain and some of the  crew. ' We hailed them, and jumped  In just in tirne.^ *  The boat that had left -the ship  before us had been swamped by a  wave, and its occupants were struggling in the water. Instead of pulling  off at once we hovered in the dangerous vicinity of the sinking ship, trying  to rescue them. All at once the deck  burst up, and the ship settled. Our  boat was engulfed in the water; vi  had only time to seize Mabel by the  arms, and we found our selves struggling for our lives ln the eddy.  The night was pitch dark; there  was no moon, and the stars were  hidden behind the masses of storm  clouds. ,1 could not see Mabel's face,  but her feverish clutch on my arm  reassured me, and I knew that she  retained consciousness. After about  ten minutes, during a lull in the wind,  I said to her:���������  "You see, darling, the night. Is  warm, and we are perfectly supported. ,It cannot be more than three or  four hours to day-light at most, and  then we are bound to be picked up Immediately. You feel safe with me, do  you not?"  Her voice came back in the impenetrable darkness:  "Yes, Eugene,' I feel safe with you;  but you have tied this belt too tightly  round me. It makes me feel faint.  Can't you shift it a little?"  "Of course I can," I replied, and  the moment th? sea seemed to bo a  little calmer I proceeded to do so.  She was lying on one arm, and I waa  busily readjusting the belt with the  other, when, In the darkness, a great  wave came over us, and dashed her.  out of my grasp. I dived Instantly and  caught her by the hair, Just as she  slipped away, and, bringing her to  the surface, I held her closely In my  arms. The life-belt had been wa'shed  out of my grasp, and I had to trust to  my own strength, assisted by the belt  that was tied round myself.  AIeb! my wife had lost consciousness, and hung a dead weight in my  arms. For hours and hours and  hours, It-seemed to me that I bore  her up ln the blackness of the night,  imploring her to speak to me ��������� to  open the dear eyes which I could feel  were tightly closed.  It was all in vain; save for the  occasional beat of the heart she might  have been dead.  What a night of agony! Heavens 1  how I prayed for morning ��������� for one  ray of light by which to see my  darling's face. I thought I should go  mad. My arms achea, my limbs ���������  my whole body grew numbed and  cold; sometimes I almost felt myself  dozing off Into the sleep of death,  waking with a start to cry aloud,  "Mabel.-Mabel, 'my darling,'speak to  me!"-and nothing answered but the  moaning of the storm as It died away  in the distance.  At last a faint streak lit the horizon,  a flush tinging the edge of a cloud,  made It visible In the darkness, a  breeze rippled the sullen billows that  rose and fell smoothly around us.  The day was breaking: I shrieked  aloud a prayer of thanksgiving to  heaven that the night was over, and  bent over the motionless, senseless  body that I held In my tired arms  with.a renewed vigour. ���������"-:������������������  Little by little the sun uprose, and  tho dawn came. With the first grey  beam that crept across, the ocean : I  peered Into the face that^had lain  close to mine all night.  It was that of another womanl,  SOT SUCH AN AWFUL tYHIItLl  By Campbell finyinond  (Copyright by Publishers Press Ltd.)  The clerks and officials in one of  the smaller bureaus ,at Washington  would, about now,-seem to a casual  visitor, to be afflicted with a chronic  grin. Even the Bomewhat sedate Chief  sometimes- 'breaks Into a solemn  chuckle- The. joke was rather on  them, so they tried to keep It quiet,  but It-leaked out, of course. Briefly,  it was nothing less than a grand, red  paint whirl by" the most circumspect  clerk on Uncle Sam's payroll that  caused that yrin.  "Uncle Charlie," as he Is called by  everyone from the Chief to the messenger, Is a meek, 'patient little man,  weighing about one hundred and five,  with mutton-chop whiskers, who has  struggled along for fifteen years on a  salary of $1,200. Twelve hundred dollars does not mean affluence down  there when one "has a family of five  girls, anduUncle' Charlie has always  been seedy.       - '  One by one the girls were married,  however, andvlt came about that with  the Juno roses , the last of Uncle  Charlie's responsibilities as to his  family vanished. For several days  after this event he was obsorved to  wear a preoccupied look, Slowly his  air of abstraction gave way to one  of determination, and one sweltering  afternoon, suddenly laying down hie  pen, he announced to the man at the  next desk that he proposed to have a  whirl.  The news ran like wildfire through  the bureau, and presently employees  began to pause casually beside Uncle  Ohnrlle's desk.  . "Say," tho office sport whispered.  "You take my tip. Drink about an  ounce of olive oil before you start In.  You will last twice as long." He  winked and went on.  "I wonder what' that young man  really meant?"' Uncle Charlie pondered.'  '  "I hear that you are going to give  yourself a little recreation, _Uncle  Charlie," the- Disbursing Clerk" said,  and gave him a playful dig ln the  ribs. "Of course you know that It Is  not exactly .regular, but' if you would  like to have a little advance, why, er,  I guess we could fix it up between  us."  "That's very kind of you, sir, but  I really don't think I shall need any  advance," Uncle Charlie said, sorely  perplexed.        -     -   -  "Perhaps ybu.'d better leave the  number of days blank on your application for leave, Uncle Charlie,"  the "Chief advised, meeting him in the  corridor. "But then," he added with  sudden indulgence,* "if you should  happen to overstay the time coming to  you, why, er, we'll-just consider that  you are sick and charge it up to sick  leave."  That was on Tuesday. On Thursday  Uncle Charlie's rusty alpaca coat was  hanging on its usual hook and Uncle  Charlie was at his old desk when the  rest of the clerks" came racing In at  one minute to nine. Uncle Charlie  was chipper and smiling, though his  nose was curiously'peeled.- The office  sport dropped his hat' with its fancy  band in his astonishment, and walked  round and round Uncle Charlie, eyeing  him from head to foot.  "Nary headache, as I live!" he  finally gasped. ��������� "Say, - Uncle * Charlie,  put me wise to that dope, will ryou?  You look as fresh as a daisy!"  It was" no use trying to disguise  their curiosity, and presently half the  office force, including the Chief, had  gathered - about Uncle Charlie's desk.  . "Now, look here, Uncle Charlie,"  the Chief said; "we just.want to know  what you did, anyway. I guess we  sort-of���������well, misunderstood your intentions,"  "Well, It wasn't such an awful  whirl, maybe, for one of you boys,  but it was a right smart one for me,"  Uncle Charlie told them, as they  pressed eagerly, forward. "You see,  for quite a long while I have had to  look after things about the-house ���������  there were always so many little jobs  that the girls couldn't do ��������� and I  used all my leave working at home.

I'm  not going to' meet you any more."    -  Nettie . leaned back among the  fragrant Capebroom, jutting its golden  spray through the fence, her eyes  upon the ground, seeking refuge from  the onen avowal Sid's stupid obtuse-  ness forced from her.  He stepped, forward, his hand fell  upon her shoulder, turning her roughly, compelling her to face the  situation.   '  "I'm sick of you," she whimpered,  "so there!"  "There's someone else?"  He was still dragging at her, forcing  her eyps to his.  "Well, what.if there is?" Sho faced  him, a small 'fury. "Haven't I a right  to please myself?" -       *    ���������  "If there-Is���������-���������'"He threw her off  with such violence that-shc rebounded  from tlio fence,' and her bonnet was  tossed over her eyes.,  Nettie tdro her hat off. "There is!  There is!" she cried.  The girl caught herself up with a  gasp.- Sid was looking very ugly just,  thon.    In   the  eyes  that slabbed her  thero was a vicious heat, his mouth  was slightly open, the under jaw rigid.  "You   little   beast!"   he   said.    He  held her tightly.    "It's "Bodio."   The  pressure increased, bruising her soft,  slim body.   "It's Bodio."  "Yes, it is," she answered, defiantly.  "A Dago.'A dirty Dago!" He pushed  her away, his face full of disgust.  "He's lovely. I don't "���������*������������������-* what jou  think. I don't caro what you say, he's  lovely."  For over three weeks Sidney Wood,  saw nothing of Nettie, but he hoard  of her often, and always in association' with Glnn Bodio, the dapper,  black-eyed Italian who ' speared  oysters with amazing dexterity on the  right side of Silvio Panzacchi's shop  front, "while Nettie Mulholland boxed  sweets and .bagged bananas behind  her natty little counter on the left.  Sid was a commonplace youth in a  commonplace world, suddenly thrust  into i a vortex of the emotions that  make for tragedy.  - One moonlight night, after following  them like a blackmailer for an hour,  creepiing meanly from bush to bush,  he saw Gian kiss Nettie good-night by  the Cape-broom hedge, where he and  she had so often parted. The Italian  held her close in his arms, and kissed  her again and again, with uncouth,  noisy kisses. Suddenly Sid arose. He  understood now what it all meant. He  realized in a moment what the fury  and the fever had prompted. Nettie  must die.   He would kill her.  No argument followed, no self-  questioning. In his mind there were  no doubts. He no longer cherished  enmity towards Gian Bodio; his soul  was absorbed ln the killing of Nettie  Mulholland.  Then he heard she was to be at the  trade picnic with Gian Bodio, and that  decided him. At the picnic, somewhere in the bush, before the eyes  of'her Dago, .he would kill her.  None detected the"*smallest evidence  of Sid's intention as they drove to the  picnic. Gian Bodio s'at on Nettie's  left. Next her on the right, pressed  very close, was Martin Sickert, big,  black-haired, violet-eyed, handsome, a  suburban Mephlstopheles. He * certainly enjoyed more of Nettie's'attention than poor Bodio; yet Martin was  nothing but ^orryman for Sin Me, the  banana king, with two guineas a week  and the beer habit. Throughout the  morning at Grass Creek, too, Nettie  Mulholland' flirted openly and Impudently with Sickert, and Bodio sat  with his back to a gum butt, and  watched them, small and silent, no  emotion in his pale face.  Nettie was conscious of Bodio, but  gave no thought to Sidney, and he too  was watching. It was not till after  dinner, when Martin was too drunk  to be companionable, that Nettie returned to the Italian. There were no  reproaches. They sat together i r  half an hour and then went off  through the trees and along the creek.  Sid followed. He felt his moment -3  at hand. Near the camp they passed  from view beyond a clump of saplings.  He waited, but they did not reappear.  He stole forward, crept quietly to  the saplings--- arose, nnd pushed his  way through, without a sound, his  hnnd on the weapon, his "soul hot with  resolution.  He' stopped. They were there.  Nettie lay upon the grass, Bodio knelt  upon her, his knee crushing hor  breast, his left hand gripped about  her throat In his right hand he held  a knife, from the bright blad^ of  which the sunlight flamed. His face  was close to hers, his teeth bared, and  he spat Roman oaths at her with  something of the tiger, something of  the snake. His face was comtorted  with abominable malice, hers wild  with the horror of death.  For one tense moment Sidney Wood  gazed down upon the lovers, and then  a heart-burst filled him with blind  rage.   He hurled himself at Bodio.  A moment later the two men wero  on their feet fighting. Nettie, crouched  down, backing under cover of the  saplings, watched them, mad with  fear.  Sid was sparring and punching with  bare hands. The other slashed with  his knife In a blind fury. Instinctively  Wood's left shot for tho face with  every movement of the Italian. His  arms were cut. He got the knife ln  his breast again, and then ho saw  Bodlo's chin as through a mist, and  swung his right with all the weight  pikI power he could put Into it. Tho  Italian collapsed on himself, and  went down, limp and lifeless. Sid  staggered to his knees, and then fell,  face foremost, across the body orhls  foe. "  Nettle Was running "towards the  picnic party, white and wild, shrieking "Murder! murder!"  The men found Gian n.odlo on his  knees; still dazed; but Sidney Wood  lay prone, bleeding from a dozen  wounds.  , "Take care of Nettle," he whispered.  "For God's sake, take care of Nettie.;  The Dago will kill her!"  As they lifted him a loaded revolver  fell from tho right-hand pocket of his  coat :"--  STOPS COUGHS SMi^-SfS  NEW ADVERTISING SCALE.

It  exists as the crater of a volcano  which came into existence six years  ago. The terrible internal heab of  the earth, which turns solid rock  fco fluid, blew a vent-hole there,  and the crater remains to show the  scar.  Dr.- Temple Anderson, who has  ventured to peer into this vast  canldron, tells us that it contains  a river of molten lava, which  gleams white-hot in the sunlight,  and is so fluid that it rises in active  fountains, and breaks in scorching waves against the walls of the  crater.  Finally the lava rushes in a tide,  sir," said the Premier. "Socialism  is hot air, and that is why instead  of advancing it has been receeding  so thafc after March 2Sth there will  not be a single Socialist left in the  Legislature. The poople wore getting tired of listening to the same  old story and putting up monthly  dues to support a lot. of itinerants  filled with Karl Marx."

"They have  been attending to business while  the Socialists do a heap of talking  So much for my Socialist friends.  ISTo doubt next week this hall will  be crowded nightly to hear the promulgation of their woes." (Laughter.)  The Premier then dealt with the  fortnightly wage bill which the  government did not consider practicable.  Mr. Heatherton, from the gallery, said: "The B. C. Federation of Labor representing 10,000  men had asked for it."  The Premier repeated that the  government must consider how it  would apply to the whole province.  It was nofc practicable in out of  way places, but would be investigated by the labor commission.  Another man asked why the  government did not pay the men  who had worked on the plans of  Midway and Vernon Railway now  taken over by the Kettle Valley  Company.  Tho Premier replied that the  government did not look affcer  every .little case, hut aB far as  possible would try to pay off all  debts on the old road.  In answer to questions by'another man tho Premier said ho bo-  ieved foreign dependents of a man  killed in an accident should bo nro-  vided for under the-Workmen's  Compensation Act. So far he had  not found it possible to devise a  law to insure wages of men employed by exploiters' of wild cat  schemes.
