"British Columbia, of all  parts  of tho  North American continent,  should be watched  by commercial  men.

She beheld au old oil painting with a  broken, tarnished frame on it.  She beheld an old blue pitcher with  the nose knocked off.  She beheld what seemed to bo a silver salver covered with verdigris.  "W-whnt aro they?" she asked as she  sunk Into the ueurest chair and gasped  for breath.  "Mementos of our twenty-second  wedding anniversary, Mrs. Bowser,  and 1 am proud and happy to present  them to you.

Ho painted it while in prison and  awaiting trial for tho killing of a girl  who jilted him. When he came to trial  it was the picture thnt saved him.

The painting was afterward  stolen from him and at the end of  twenty years was found In the house  of Charlemagne, who had gobbled it.  Whether Charlemagne was punished  for his offense against the law is a  matter lost In the lapse of time. All  the old masters took this picture as a  guide. In fact, It was the beginning of  tiie old master business, Please remember what I have told you, so ns to  be able to explain It to your callers."  Mrs. Bowser gave a shiver and lost  her memory in a flash.  "This old blue pitcher has a curious  history. ��������� Cicero flrst presented It to  Nero. After a year or two Nero presented it to Claudius. Then It,passed  from Claudius to Alexander the Great.  It was while Alexander had it that he  slipped on a banana peel and fell down  and broke the nose off. It was then  thrown on the scrap heap and was not  heard of again for a hundred years. II  thi������������i appeared on the banquet table of  Cyrus, king of Persia, and we can  trace it down through various hand!-,  until It finally reached those of Benedict Arnold.

Mrs. Bowser had been sitting and si  lently praying for an earthquake or a  cyclone to come, but neither is ever  made to order.

"And how do you know that he told  you the truth?"  "Why. what possible object could  lie have in deceiving me? Of-course  lie told me the truth."  "But history doesn't say that Aristotle was ever in love, ever in prison,  or ever painted a picture."  "Suppose it doesn't? Do you think  history lias kept track of everything  that's happened in the world? Mrs  Bowser, you show a disposition to  carp, and I'm astonished."  "But how could Cicero present that  old pitcher to Nero when they didn'i  live in the same century? Tliere were  no stuffed chairs In Cleopatra's time.  Nero and Claudius were also a hundred years apart.

And, picking up the chair, he used  it as a sledge to break and smash and  splinter until a heap of broken stuff  represented the history of a thousand  years ago. When he had finished he  broke the last leg off the chair, kicked  the stuffing out and then stood with  folded arms and said:  "Mrs. Bowser, our forty-second anniversary may come, our hundredth,  our thousandth, but never again do I  bring a memorial Into this house-  never!

The novelist and the poet can throw  i glamor over scenes and places  which are in themselves by no means  remarkable, and can even add u  fresh charm, to those which have already many claims of notice. Scott  is probably unrivalled as a novelist  of locality. How many Americans  and Colonials, for instance, would  make pilgrimage to Kenilworth but  for Scott's novel of that nurrier  Doubtless a few would, for it has  beauty and distinction which are independent of fiction, but it may be.  safely said that where a hundred  people visit it to-day one visited it  before  Scott  lived  and wrote.  There is no doubt also that Scott  discovered the Trossachs and the  Highlands of Scotland. When Dr.  Samuel Johnson and James Bos well  made their celebrated tour through  the Highlands, that magnificent region of mountain and lake was much  less known than is the Soudan today, and Johnson's celebrated diary  of'his trip was not calculated to persuade many people to follow in his  footsteps. It remained for the poems  and romances of Sir Walter Scott to  reveal to the world a region of almost  unrivalled beauty ancl wild grandeur,  and since his day visitors to the  Highlands have increased ten-thousandfold.  Kirriemuir is an excellent example  of what a novelist can accomplish in  the way of glamor. Not .even a Scotsman will claim much beauty for the  villages and small hamlets of his  native country. They have little or  nothing of the idyllic charm of English villages, and Kirriemuir is  neither better nor worse than a hundred  of its  village  compeers.  Yet as Barrie's "Thrums" it is famous in every English-speaking community the world over; and Americans especially make a point of visiting it, and perhaps trying to' see  through some "window" there the  idyllic scenes which Barrio saw.  Al'as! they cannot. They may be  there to see, but it would take another Barrie to see them. In the  same way Crockett's books have made  the Galloway country, hitherto almost as little known as Connemara,  quite a tounst resort,-and many people nowadays go lovingly over the  ground which is the setting for such  fine novels as "The Haiders" and  "The Men of the Moss Hags."  There is a room at the Royal Hotel,  Bideford, which is kept to-day just as  Charles Kingsluy used it when he was  writing his famous novel, 'Westward  Ho!" Thousands of people have stayed at this hotel, simply on Charles  Kingsley's account arid in order to  make it the centre from which they  can cover the scenes mentioned in the  famous romance. It cannot be said  that Kingsley .made Bideford, bacause  it was a famous old port in Elizabeth's  day; but it can bj truly said that  he resuscitated the old town and  made it a modsrn place of resort and  pilgrimage, though it would probably  ti.ke more than a novel to restore its  old  seafaring  glory.  Thousands of people r/o every summer to se.e the battlefield of Towton,  and tho selling of old axe-heads and  "relics" has afforded good business  for years, whilst I.ytton has woven  so much romance around Battle Ab-  b^y and the (ield of Siiilac that thousands of brakes and chars-a-bancs go  out of Hastings during the season  laden with curious sight-seers, although it must be confessed there is  not a great deal to see when they get  there.  "DIZZY'S" STORY.  Lord Rosebery Tells of a Tale by tho  Great Beaconsfield.  ���������  Lord Rosebery, in his life bf William Pitt, the younger, relates an excellent story that he himself heard  from, tin; lips of Lord Beaconsfield.  The anecdote cannot be better related  'isir. m tlsi; author's own words:  "Mr. Disraeli," he writes, "in the  more genial and loss majestic days  before 1374, used to tell a sardonic  story of this .time. When he first  entered Parliament he used often to  dine at the II.jiisp of Commons, where  he was generaly servd by a- grim  ild waiter of prehistoric reputation,  who was supposed to possess a secret  treasure of political tradition. The  young 'member sought by every .gracious art to win his confidence ��������� and  oartake of these stories. One day the  venerable domestic relented. 'You  hear many lies'told as history, sir,'  ne said, 'do you know what Mr. Pitt's  'ast words were!-'  " 'Of course," said Disraeli, 'they  .re well known "Oh, my country!  How T rove my country!"

At Londonderry House, a dinner  party given by Viscount Castlereagh,  M.P., was largely attended, and  among the gu������sts was Captain J.  Craig, M.P. This gentleman is a  popular raconteur, and * during his  military career has collected a good  number of stories. We have selected  this one, which deals with a rather  hopeless lot of recruits, whose stupidity as they bungled through their  drill aroused the ire of the captain in  charge. For the hundredth time they  turned to the left when the orderwas  given "Right turn," and ran about  like lo3t sheep at the order, "Form  fours." That was the last straw.  "You knock-kneed, flat-footed idiots!"  he yelled. "You're not worthy of being drilled by a captain. What you  need is a rhinoceros to tench you."  Then, sheathing his sword in a towering passion, he turned upon his companion, a young lieutenant, who was  standing near, quietly enjoying the  joke, and scarcely able to refrain from  laughter. "Now, lieutenant," he roared at the top of his'voice, "you take  charge of them."  "Tommy"  and  the Turkey.  During the Boer War a despatch  rider galloped into the British camp  with a fat turkey tied to his saddle.  Meeting a simple-looking horseman,  hesaid: "Hallo, mate, where shall I  find Polly Cr.rey?" "That's his camp  over there," was the reply; "but if  I were you, I wouldn't take that turkey with you. It might get you into  trouble." "All right," said the  trooper; "you take it till I return, and  we'll go shares." Before the stranger  could protest the bird was in his  keeping nnd the despatch rider had  ridden off. Later on the trooper discovered that thr* simple-looking horseman was none other than Sir Reginald  Pole-Care"*, whom we incidentally  wi3h many happy returns of his  birthday, which Ire has just celebrated. The General only laughed at  what he considered a good joke, and  Hinted to the abushed "Tommy" that  he would find his turkey safely hidden  not far away.  Napoleon and the Steamboat.

All drinking water should be tested  in town or country frequently, as  there are other impurities besides sewage whieh are quite as deadly, and  every cistern of water is liable to be  a source of blood poisoning.

But   he   didn't   care   for   golf;   he  couldD't.dunce; he knew so little of the  new books and the old pictures, the  thousand nnd one things they talked  ubout.   He was au alien. sLookltig up.  be saw Miss Hilderbrand on" tbe step  , above' bini.  ������ Miss Illlderbrand was the leader of  the fnshiouublos that, ran tbe Country  club.' Her clothes were Imitated, her  speeches repeated.  Brooks had' wondered that so reserved a woman could be as popular.  He had notlf-ed that the charm of distinction was In hor high bred face and  then thought no more about her. Women were not much In his line either. -  Miss Hilderbrand had smiled down  on him and said that she wanted htm  to come in aud drink tea with ber.  And when she smiled tbe question of  ber popularity was settled.  After that day Brooks became a real  member of the club. The women left  younger men to talk to him. The men  slapped him on the back, invited him  to drinks unci voted him a fine old  chap.  ��������� He began to enjoy the life and the  .    new spirit of friendliness  that-pervaded the atmosphere.   There was no  more  talk'of   leaving  this  circle  of  .   bright, pretty women and jolly fellows.  Brooks   realized  that   he  owed  the  change to .Miss Illlderbrand. .

Six months had made a new man of  IBrooks. and still he lingered. -  People had come and gone, as they  ���������do nt resort hotels, but Miss Hilderbrand had not gone.  The afternoon had again come for  ber to pour tea for the club members,  ibut she' had sent her excuses.  .Johnston, a friend and fellow citizen  ���������of hers, said that she had gone on tho  mountain to be aloue and get a grip  - -on herself; that a telegram had brought  iier bad news.  The car climbed slowly.  Brooks hadn't the slightest idea what  ���������the trouble was nor what assistance ho  ���������could render. .There was but one desire in his honest heart, and that was  to help ber. Uow he would do it hadn't  been revealed; but. with nis. usual directness, he b-id followed her to find  out.  On the mountain top the band play,  t'd. nnd gay groups of people moved in  overy direction.  Brooks came upon Miss'Hilderbrand,  solitary In the midst of the crowd.  The glow of the sunset was on ber.  and as he" came up she smiled unsteadily.  "Pin sorry you've heard it. I leave  tomorrow. 1 hoped it would not be  found out, but of course everybody  will know."  "I'm not" everybody," said Brooks  stoutly. "I came because 1 want to  comfort lonely, things. What can 1  do?"  Miss Hilderbrarid's glance went over  Brooks' stout ligure and came back to  bis clear eyes. The two faces were in  sharp contrast-in his the rugged  strength of a more simple civilization.

"I'm thought to be such an  accomplshcd youug woman."  "But there's McAdoo." Brooks spoke  that nntne with difficulty.

The following is a short sketch of  the events which led up to Dr. Coke's  appointment:  After the American Revolution many  of Wesley's early helpers' were driven  out .of the United States'on the charge  of Being British sympathizers, and  from 1773-1783 the minutes of the English Methodist Conference contain no  records of the work done in America  Also from 1773-1784 there were no  published minutes of the American  Methodist Conference.  Wesley had intended the Methodist  organizations in America to be dependent on the Church of England olergy-  men for the administration of tho  Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's  Supper, hut the Civil War destroyed  all possibility of it. Twioe he wrote  to Lowth, Bishop of London, asking  him to ordain some of the Methodist  helpers, and thus give .them authority to administer these sacraments,  but Lowth refused, stating that there  ; A Genius ,   .

Whereas many ot the People in the  Southern Provinces of North America,  who desire to continue under my  care, and still adhere to the Doctrines  and Discipline of the Church of England are greatly distrest for want of  ministers lo administer the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's  Supper, according to the usage of the  said Church; And whereas there does  not appear to be any other way of  supplying them with ministers:  Know all men, thtit I, John Wesley,  think myself to be providentially called at this time to set apart some persons for the work of the ministry in  America.

Sir Charles Tupper.  Canada has emerged into the status  of a young nation blinking at the  brilliancy of its own future. We aVe  fond of saying that Canada stands  on the threshold. But surely we  crossed the threshold on July 1, 1867,  when a few scattered settlements  under the genius of the old chieftain  and tho devoted loyalty to Canada of  a galaxy of patriots. And of all thnt  brilliant, corps of nation founders the  one whose task was the most arduous,  still lives in tho full possession of his  faculties, Sir Charles Tupper,���������Vancouver Sunset.  A little girl was in the habit of telling awful "stretchers." Her auntie  told her she could not believe her; and  to warn her, related the tale of the  boy who called "Wolf, wolf," and how  the wolf really did come one day and  at up all the sheep.  "Ate the sheep?" asked the child.  "Yes."  "All of them?"  "Yes, all of them," said the auntie.  "Well," said the little one, "I don't  believe you, and you don't believe me.  So there!"

DUBES,  Commercial Tiaveiler.  Looked Like a Canadian.  -   In;a Police Court  in  Old  London  the  other day  a  detective gave evidence  against  a   band  of  confidence  men,   and   told   the   magistrate   that  their leader first approached a man at  Waterloo station who "had the appearance of a Canadian."   He did not enlighten the court as to what a Canadian   appearance   was;   but  the  incident recalls one which took place in  London  last  year,   when   a   b^vy  of  girls was sent over as part of an advertising scheme for a Montreal newspaper.    One of the girls got lost in  the British Museum or some place of  that kind, and was compelled to ask  the good  offices of a  "bobby."   She  told him of her plight and asked to  be  directed   to  the  private  hotel  at  which the party was staying, adding  the   chance   remark  that  she  was  a  visitor from Canada and did not know  her way about.   The "copp -r" surprised her very much by retorting:  "Ho, Miss, yer needn't 'i ve told me.  I knew you was a Canadian the moment I cL.pp.id my If eyes h'on yer!"  And the girl from Glengarry has always wanted to know how the constable knew. Can it be that there is  really a "Canadian appearance" and  that the London police have got unclassified? It is an interesting point.  Perhaps Doctor Colquhoun, who is  just b:.ck from a trip to the "Biy  Smoke," could solve the riddle:  "What is the Canadian appearance?"  -"Il  TEA  Unsurpassed for quality and flavor  Lead packets only.  .At all Grocers.

In the present provincial campaign the Liberals do not appear  to have any planks in their platform for the sons of -toil.

The Western Wa-ge-Enner  romaiks that the admission of Asiatics iii the; guise of students and  professional men, the use of the  militia at Fort William and "Glace  Bay, and the reason the Liberal  members in, the provincial house  voted almost to a man against  labor measures are subjects that  will be studiously avoided during  the campaign'. ���������   '  ��������� The Princeton Star, edited by a  Liberal, says that the majority of  the Liberals in the Similkameen  will vote for Shatford at the coming election, The Star also says,':  "Touching those matters which  more particularly concern the  Liberal party, it is a most lamentable fact' that from being, a respected and united political organization in. the days-when Hewitt  Bosto'ck.represented Yale-Cariboo,  it is now the,.laughing stock of the  Dominion,"; torn, bedragled, decimated and sadly lacking in those  physical and intellectual- powers  which were once the pride of the  party.' The healthy tone and  unity which Bostock imparted to  it were completely dissipated by  the late member for Yale-Cariboo.  The utter rout and ruin of the  party'culminated in the knockout  blow last November. In the four  years of the late member's representation, ^double dealing, broken  promises,- false pretenses and traitorous treatment of, those who were  responsible for his election in 1904,  marked every hour of the:tiirie  from' that date to November 12,  1908.
