��� -r-j I"*'-!"..'  THE    LEDGE,    GREENWOOD,    BRITISH    COLUMBIA.  RAN THROUGH RAPIDS  CANADIAN   WINS   $1,000 BY FEAT  OF   RECKLESS   DARING.  Negotiated Big Horn Canyon for First  Time In History���������Boat Overturn  ed Five "Times In Awful Mae!-  . j stroms���������Feat Thought to Be Impossible ��������� Fearful Gorge Called  "Waters of Death."  ���������A nervy Canadian has recently succeeded in milking the, passage of the  dreaded Big Horn Canyon, winni****  $1,000 in gold and successfully acconi  plishing a feat which has heretofore  been considered impossible by th-j  Americans, a feat in which at least a  dozen men have lost their lives. Where  tlie Big Horn River breaks through  the mountains in the terrible canyon,  the Indians, many years ago, gav.  it the name of the '"'Waters of Death,"  and the fearful gorge has deserved  that name both iu looks and in fact  W. O. Hamed is the Canadian who  made the successful trip. Haniod was  lor many years a boatman on the rapids in the St. Lawrence river, an J  was known as the most proficient of  nil the guides there. But he drifted  west and settled clown in Shoshoni,  Ironi whence he made the start  through the canyon which lies between that town and Thcrrnopolis.  The Bet Made.  Two months ago Col. George M.  Sliney, a banker of Thermopolia, in  speaking of the canyon, made thu  statement that it was impossible for  a human being to ever pass through  there and live to tell of it.  "You're wrong there, colonel,'  drawled Hamed. "I've gone through  places just as bad as the Big Horn  Canyon, and'I can go through there."  "You've won my $100 if you do,"  promptly replied tlie colonel, and the  bet was on.  Harned secured the assistance of  an old frontiersman and guide, now  a business man of Shoshoni, named  Winne, and the two went to work to  build a boat which would withstand  almost anything. .. Poplar and oak-  were used, and after the skiff was put  together, it was sheeted from stem  to stern with the heaviest cowhide.  Whole Town Turns Out.  The whole town of Shoshoni, at the  head of the canyon, was at the river  when the' start was made. No ono  expected to see either of the n.-.i  again.  The only Indian legend of an attempt to pass through the "Waters  of Death" was made multitudes of  moons ago, when a young Sioux chief,  having won the love of a Shoshoni  maiden, stole his sweetheart from the  tepees of her people and attempted to  escape with her. They were pursued  and their escape by land being cut  off, the intrepid Red lover and his  bride took to the water in a dugout  and attempted to run the rapids of  the canyon. The following day the  pieces of the boat, were picked up  along the bank below the canyon. The  bodies were not' found.  In 1869 three white trappers embarked in a canoe on the torrents,  and several days later all three bodies were recovered near Thermopolis.  At severol different times since then  foolhardy frontiersmen have attempted  the   piissiif-e.  and  every  one  has  paid for his rashness with his life.  Inferno For  12 Miles.  So, when the crowd at the river  bade farewell to Harned and Winne,  they never expected to see them  again. Some portions of the lower  part of tho canyon have been explored, but for 12 miles not a soul ever  saw one foot of the canyon's way,  and lived to tell of it. For these 12  miles the river averages 400 feet in  width, and rushes between precipitou.-:  Tock walls from COO to 3,000 feet high.  The current is from 10 to 25 miles an  hour, and is a veritable inferno of  maelstroms, whirlpools, cataracts,  cross currents with jagged rocks  -sharp, savage and submerged throughout the entire length. The canyon  ends a few iiulcs above Thermopolis.  The skiff left Shoshoni at 10 o'cloek  in the morn ing, the departure being  telephoned to Thcrrnopolis. Praefical-  /v the entire j*opulation of the latter  town wont ;it nnca to the canyon's  mouth to await the coming of the dead  bodies of the adventures.  Bruised and Bleeding.  At 5 o'clock that afternoon the boat  shot out of the black jaws of the canyon. Both men were utterly exhausted. They were cut and bruised and  bleeding, wet to the skin, but still full  of tight. .  Five separate times did their boat  overturn, throwing the voyagers into  the frightful waters. Three times  Harned saved the life of Winne, and  twice did Winne pull Hamed in after  the latter.was almost dead. Nothing  but the heavy cowskin sheeting saved their -lives dozens of times. Tha  rooks were unable to puncture this  covering, and the light skiff rode  the waters, with ease whore no rocks  appeared.. The canyon had been conquered, "but we don't want any more  of it." said Harned.  Made   Purse   $1,000.  Co!. Sliney was one of the party  which helped haul the cowskin boat  ashore. Instead of handing over th-'  $100 agreed upon, the colonel threw  a bag containing $1,000 in gold into  the skiff, and then, with the two men  still in the boat, it was liflr-d on  broad shoulders and carried throned  the town, followed by a bran band  and every citizen of the little city.

Lord Stiathcona, who recently arrived from England, tamed on a number  of questions of interest lo Canadians.  Tins all-red mail ioute was tlie first  question that, came up, and Lord  Slratlieona 'declared himself, an enthusiastic advocate of thj project.  "It would be a great ���������'thing," lie  said, "not only for Canada, but also  for all-parts of the Empire, and I earnestly hope to see it, an accomplished  fact. The ���������'establishment of air eight-  day service between Liverpool and  Vancouver/which would be the result  of it, would cause large quantities of  foreign capital to flow into the country. Many people who are now deterred by the length of time necessary for the journey from going so far  west as the coast would with the establishment of the new service be led  to "do so, and the sight of the great  resources of the prairie region would  lead them to invest their capital in  Canada rather than in foreign countries.  When asked as to the object of hi3  present summer trip, following within  a comparatively short space of time  his; visit in the winter. Lord ���������"Slrh'th-  cona intimated that it was chiefly undertaken in connection with his business 'concerns.���������������������������'"Some''official mutters  will be the subject of conference with  mombers of the Government," he observed, "but there are business affairs  that will take me some weeks, probably, and I cannot say at present how  long  I may  remain."  As to immigration, he thought the  results, so far as Canada was concerned, woro mosi gratifying. More immigrants were corning to Canada in u  week now than there were in a year  when he first came to the country,  70 years ncro. in the days of tho-old  sailing ships.  TROUBLE OYER ALL-RED.  Premier Fears Its Support by Lord  Elgin and Lloyd-George.  The News of tlie World, retorting  to the all-red route, states that Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's determined -espousal  of the scheme is causing the Home  Government discomfort. Sir Henry  Campboll-Banncrman's support is  half-hearted because ho fears to wrack  the Cabinet, as Mr. Asquith, the man  with the purse, nnd other heavyweights in tho Government are strongly opposed. On the other hand, Mr.  Lloyd-George and Lord Elgin are as  warmly in favor of the scheme, and  it is possible the latter may resign if  the whole scheme is negatived. The  News of the World alleges that the  opinion of Imperial statesmen here  is that while Canada stands to benefit greatly by carrying through the  proposal,'the advantages to the Mother Country are not so obvious. The  paper adds that efforts are now being  concentrated on tho Atlantic section  of the route.  Gen. J. W. Laurie writes The limes,  pointing out that. Canada, by furnishing the garrisons and maintaining the  docks at Halifax and Esquimau, relieves the Mother Country to a greater  extent than Australia. He adds that  as Canada unites with her all the other British possessions in North America the West Indies may hope that  she may assume similar responsibilities throughout that part of the bm-  pire -      Too Many Misfits.  There continue to be reports of immigrants arriving in Canada who  would have been better left at home.  The idea that this country is suited  to the needs and conditions of any  and every class of people is one that  should be set right by the Dominion  Immigration Department. More harm  than good is done Canada by promiscuous advertising of its advantages  and its opportunities for work. There  is to ba sure, almost unlimited work  here to be done, but it is not the  kind of work for which every man is  by nature and training fitted. 1- may  be taken for granted that it would  have been better for the men who has  given up an assistant profesr.o'ship  in an English school and, who is now  working on tlie streets of Edmonton  if he had stayed in England; ne is a  rnisfif here.

P., said: "The  condition of the worker.') in Canada is,  as far as I can see, about the limit  of subsistence. Income and expenditure about balance and it is my opinion that the condition of the worker  will become worse.  "The next genet ation will find th*  struggle for ovistnnce just, as kcon  here as it no\<5iis in the old country  I attribute this condition mainly U.  the present.insane policy of allowins  public lands to be given to or acquired  by speculators."  ROYALTY AND RELIGION.  Members of  Reigning  Families   Who  Have Withdrawn  From  World.  The latest member of a reigning  family to embrace a religious life is  the Prince of Lqewenstein-Wertheim;  who has just gone into a monastery.  He is well known i through his long  activity in opposition to duelling. He  is now 74, and when one ; considers  how powerful an attraction monastic  life has had for his family it does not  appear surprising that he, took the  step. His only sister and two of his  daughters took up conventual life  long ago. His sister, Princess Adel-  heid Loewenstein; is -the" widow of the  Infante Miguel, once a pretender to  the throne of Portugal. His son,'the  Duke of Braganza, has just announced that, ho will al30 make a claim to  tho throne of that disturbed country.:  Among other ��������� religious members of  reigning families is Prince -Max of  Saxony, brother of, the reigning King,  who is professor of. canonical law  and liturgy at the University of Freiburg. With the exception -; of those  named only side branches of the  reigning families are to be found in  religious life. The consistorial counsel of the Cathedral of St. Stephen in  Vienna is Count Arnold zur Lippe, a  cousin of the reigning branch of that  dynasty. Among the' members of the  famous although politically unimportant family of Lichtenstein in  Vienna who have gone into the  Church are Prince George,; who as  Father Ildeson has become a niembor  of the Benedictine Order at Prague,  and Princess Henrictte Lichtenstein,  who under the name of Adelgundis  has Ron/i into the Benedictine convent at Srnichow in  Bohemia.  Among the so-called mediatized  families 'there are many more examples, although they are all Catholics.  One may search in vain for a Protestant dignitary who has gone into  tlie religious life. Prince Frederic de  Croy, who was not long ago a very  lively young officer of the guards at  Potsdam, is now a priest in the service of the Pope. Two members of  the Hohendohe-Sehillingsfurest family have recently become priests. One,  Prince Philip, who formerly held a  high political post, is now a Benedictine father, and Prince Karl Elgon,  who is barely out of his teens, has  become a secular priest in the diocese of Siebenburgen. There is of  course a long list of young. women  who have taken the veil, and among  the most recent is the beautiful Marie  Schwartzenberg, - daughter of the  Prince, who has become a Benedictine  nun. Sister Maria Woislawa, the  daughter of Prince Lobkowitz, has  just entered a convent, and so have  three sisters of Prince Isenburg-Bir  stein, whose mother was an Arch  duchess of Austria-Toscana.

And  thus spreads the balm of love.  Opium   Habit Cured.  In a report to the Washington bureau of manufacturers the American  consul-general at Singapore gives interesting information on the new Malay opium cure. He states that the  plant from which the cure is brewed,  combretum sundaicum, is a climber  of no hitherto known use.  It wa's discovered by a young Chinaman, who had beejn told by one of his  friends to boil the leaf of a certain  nlant growing in the jungle and drink  the brew it yielded. He did so and  found he could break off the opium  habit.  This marvelous discovery was not  lone hidden. The landlord was told  about it. and set his coolies to collect the plant. The Chinese preachers--  and voting men enthusiastically took  up tho matter and the medicine was  nreparcd at the mission hall. Hundreds came every day for the marvelous Temedy. finding it banished the  <*1nnm and depression caused by an-  abstinence from the awful drug, -until the mission hall and street out  side b������cime blocked with people.

With the prize almost within his  grasp, Jabez Wolffe, the amateur  swimmer who had already made four  unsuccessful attempts to swim the  English Channel, has been again deprived of his victory by an adverse  tide. Wolffe had accomplished a record swim from the South Foreland,  getting within 3-4 of a mile of Cape  Blanc, France, in "151-2 hours, when  the turn of the tide and an adverse  wind carried him away from the land  and necessitated the relinquishment  of his attempt, which was the second  ho made this year. R. D. Heaton, of  Mvorpool, also attempted to swim the  Channel, but gave up when four and  a half miles from the French coast.

A Few of the Many Marvels of tho Human Body.  On an average man's, body there are  840,000 hairs. Plucking one every second It would take him twelve eight-  hour working days to pull them all out.  In his blood there are 25,000,000,000,000  red corpuscles. Laid out side, by side  they would cover a surface of 3,130  square yards.  The whole of the blood passes through  ���������* man's "heart nearly twice In every  minute. It weighs one-thirteenth of  the entire body weight, and It moves  lu different parts of the body at speeds  varying from ten' feet to 1,G0C yards  (nearly one mile) an. hour.  The fat of your body is fluid. H becomes solid only when the body cools  after death. It Is one of your most  useful constituents, forming a nonconducting sheath to protect you from  cold, acting as pads to preserve from  shock, ou the tips of the fingers, tho  toes and the heels and lying always  ready as a reserve food supply when  you can get nothing to eat.  A little artery passes from your, brain  through tho skull into tho scalp, which  acts as a safety valve when the brain  Is congested with blood. '  The slclu cannot grow again once  It is destroyed; hence the unsightly  scars left by burns and severe wound*'.  Only tho surface layer can renew  Itself. When the whole thickness is destroyed, it never reforms. This Is the  more curious as muscles, nerves, blood  vessels and bones,' all less liable to,injury than the skin, can grow again.  You aro really a, water rather than  a laud animal. Although as a whole  you live on dry land, your body consists of countless millions of separate  living particles, and these are all Immersed iu tlie water which constitutes  four-fifths of your substance.  Within the inner part of your ear,  deep in tho bone, is a quantity of fluid  which acts as a spirit level and enables  you   to   keep  your  balance.  "Johnson's a lucky man, isn't he?"

ANAEMIA CURED  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Bring Back  the Glow of Health by Making New Blood  To bud into perfect womanhood  the growing girl must carefully  guard her health. Unless the blood  is kept rich and pure, headaches,  backaches and frequent dizzy spells  will trouble her. She will always be  ailing and may slip into a deadly decline.

Brooklyn man who entertained an  English relative tells this without the  quiver of an eyelid:  "My cousin from 'London reached  New York last summer, along with a  hot wave. Tho crowds were deep before the soda water fountains on lower  Broadway. Ho remarked that he did  not comprehend how Americans could  swallow that 'nasty slush.'      **���������  " 'A mere preference,' I explained.  'We have many curious examples of  that kind in this country. One of the  most remarkable evidences of insatiable appetite for froth rather than substance is that of the American poultry  lover who daily advertises iu our New  York papers for 1,000 feather beds. As  you may well imagine, he is said to  have entirely lost his taste for the  flesh of the fowl.'  " 'Oh, really!' exclaimed the Englishman in quiet surprise. Nothing more  was said till nine months later, when  I opened my mail one day and found  a marked copy of the London Times,,  which he had sent to me. He called  my attention to this extract Id an  article on mob rule and lynching in  America, 'It can hardly be possible  that the supply of tar and feathers in  the United States will be sufficient at  the rate the mobs are covering the  bodies of tho poor wretches who are  tortured and humiliated before they are  drawn and quartered or burned at the  stake.'  " 'I fancy you will see your error  after reading this,' he wrote. 'It is  quite plain the man wanted the beds  for another purpose and not, as you  believe, to eat.'"  Youthful Financier.

This is, however, by no means always the case.  It is true that a  big nose is sometimes indicative of firmness and   le-  termination, when    coupled    with  a  strong jaw and long  chin.    A    big  nose with a retiring chin 'is almost  idiotic in the expression it give's to  tlie countenance.   But there is some-  ��������� thing , to be said  in favor of short  noses.    The    short nose  shows  wit,  imagination,   tact,  judgment,   discretion.   Socrates had a snub nose, and  of the lively, imaginative wn ers in  almost any language a considerable  proportion   are   short-nosed   people.  Long-nosed men may do their share  of the-world's work,    but   the. short  noses write tho clever books and the  entertaining   plays.   If   Shakespeare  had had' a nose like   the' Duke   of  Wellington it is not likely he would  have written "The Merry   Wives   of  Windsor."

"The effects of gravitation .are so fa-  millar-as-to demand only tlie briefest  mention, yet most of us perhaps seldom stop to consider how far. reaching  these effects are," says Dr. ' Henry  Smith Williams. "But for gravitation  the winds would not blow, the waters  would not descend, and the mountain  tops would not crumble into the valleys. Each particle of pulverized rock  would remain where it was formed,  and there would be no such thing as a  mixed soil.  "But as matters are actually arranged gravitation is perpetually active,  and every particle of matter is being  eternally tugged at and urged to get  nearer to the earth's center. So no  sooner does a fragment of rock at a  mountain crest become loosened than  gravitation hurls it crashing down Into  the valley, shattering it Into fragments perhaps or at the least grinding  off some portions of its surface as  well as of the surface of the rocks  against which It is dashed.  "By such means and with the further aid of Its handmaidens, wind and  water, gravitation works Its unceasing  purpose of leveling the surface of the  earth. In a few brief geological moments it rounds the shoulders of the  haughtiest mountain, and, given time  enough, it will bring every particle of  rook back to the sea bed, whence it  originally sprang. Short of that, as a  transition stage, It is forever mixing  the different soil constituents on the  one hand and sorting them out again  on the other."���������ADDleton'a.  Australian Mangrove Swamps Stretch  Unbroken for Mile's ��������� Swordfish  and Sharks Play Havoc With Nets  ���������A Gorgeous But Dangerous Jungle���������The Serpent In an Eden���������  Lost for Five Days. <  .The country around Port Darwin in  which   Engineer-Commander   Silk   oi  H.M.S.' Pryamuo    was lost  for-five  days was well known to me nineteen*  years ago,  and there has  been very  little change in the northern territory  since    that   time.      The    mangrove  swamps,  that sometimes stretch unbroken by cliffs or beach for miles',  are to the eye a low, duH green wall  rising  from-the  sea.    Thousands  of  oysters  cling  to  the  fantastic  roota  and branches of the mangroves that  are laved by the tidewaters, and on  the   bottom   lie'   prawns,  crabs   and  other    shellfish    of    enormous    size.  Swordfish and sharks often play sadi  havoc with  the nets, as also do the!  numerous   alligators  that   wallow   inl  the black slime brought down by the'  creeks which trickle through the dense  wilderness of closely knitted boughs  and leaves.  Each evening at sunset flocks of-  flying foxes in search of food stream  from their haunts in the mangroves  toward the open "country; so black,  eerie and mysterious do they 'appear  in the glorious red and golden light  ass their lieavy webbed wings flap  slowly in their flight, that to the  imagination of any wanderer in the  neighborhood they become harbingers  of ill-omened fate. Where the stretches  of dazzling white beach approach the  swamp . one frequently comes on a  quicksand; and I remember my'horror when I rode unconscious of its  existence into the one at;Fannie Bay;  I felt my horse's feet sink over 'the  fetlocks just as my companion's shout  brought us back to'firm ground.  The territory has been often described as a sportsman's paradise.  At this time of the year the organized  shooting parties find around the lagoons and jungles about ten miles  from Port Darwin myriads of different species of wild dii'ck and geese,  as well as ibis, native companions,  various kinds of pigeons, cockatoos-  and parrots and emu and kangaroo.  Black boys generally accompany the  parties to retrieve from the tangle of  lilies and other beautiful plants, by  which the surface of the shallow waters are thickly covered, the birds that  fall to the guns.  The thick belts of the jungle are  choked by an undergrowth of parasitic creepers that have flung their  ropes around the trunks and into the  branches of the great trees, to droop  thence in a maze of tangled loops into, which it is impossible to penetrate  far without cutting away. Clusters of  white, starry flowers shine graciously  among the green of fern and moss; a  blaze of scarlet blossom clings around  the tall pillar o. a banyan; and the  soft illumination of heliotrope orchids lights the diverse undergrowth  that is only half revealed in the tender brooding twilight.  A friend relating an-experience, ol.  the jungle described the soft dank  heat and intense silence, the raro  shafts of sunlight breaking through  the canopy of the treetops, and the  feelings of reverence and awe inspired in him by the beautiful Gothiclike arches and tracery;.'and told of  his rude awakening when, turning hi?  head to the right, he saw suspended  from a branch an enormous python  swaying stealthily as it loosened its  coils and slowly advanced its head to  ward him. The sight of the serpent  in this glimpse of Eden, and one so  muscular and of such evil I intent, so  terrified him that with', a shout he  rushed from the jungle to the open  without even firing a shot.���������Pall Mall  ' '-ilK1 "  ' $&?$&/ This cold-water starch  S&i^i)/ gets ironing-day over  quicker, with less wear on  ���������^,.,(.f ���������rthe ironer's muscles and far  K$&y less on the starched pieces.  fc$i/Gives a, beautiful gloss.  ** /Needn'tbe boiled, .yet cannot  'stick.'"

The natives of the Yukon River region hold a festival of the dead every  year shortly before Christmas, and a  greater festival at intervals of several  years.  At these  seasons food, drink,  and clothes are provided for the returning   ghosts   in ��������� the  clubhouse   of  the village; which _ is illuminated for  the  occasion  with', oil  lamps.  Every  man or woman who wishes to honor a  dead friend sets up,a lamp on a stand  in front'of the.place which the dead  one used to .occupy in the clubhouse.  These lamps, filled with seal oil, are  kept burning day and night until the  festival is over.- They are believed to  light  the  shades  on  their return  to  their old home and back again to the  land of the dead. If any one fails to  put up a lamp in the clubhouse and  to keep it burning, the shade whom  he or she desires to honor could not  find its way to the place, and so would  miss  the  feait.   When  a person has  been much disliked-his ghost is sometimes purposely ignored, and that is  deemed the severest punishment that  could ber inflicted, upon him. After the  songs of invitation to the dead have  been sung the.givers of the feast take  a_ small portion of food from every  dish and cast it 'down as an offering  to the shades;", then each pours a little  water on.the  floor,  so that it runs  through the.cracks. In this way they  believe that the spiritual essence of  all the,food and water is conveyed to  the souls. With songs and dances the  feast comes to an end and the ghosts  are dismissed to their own place. The  dancers dance, not only in the clubhouse, but also at the graves, and on  the ice if the dead met their deaths  by drowning. On the evo of the festival the nearest male relative goes to  the grave and summons the ghost by,  planting there a small model of a seal  spear or of a wooden dish, according  as the dead was a man or a woman.  The totems of the dead are marked on  these implements. The dead who have  none to make offetings to them  are  believed  to   suffer  great destitution.  Hence,   the Esquimaux  fear to    die  without leaving behind them some one  who will sacrifice, to their spirit, and  childless people generally adopt children, lest their shades be forgotten at  the festivals.,.  .

Britons have always been proud of  their prowess   in    field    sports   and  games of strength and skill, but this  year they have been humbled in many  contests.  The Belgian defeated Lean-  der  at   Henley,   an   American  holds  the tennis  championship,  a Frenchman is champion of English golf, an  Australian   is   champion  of  England  at lawn tennis, and tho premier honors in other branches .of that excellent and  increasingly  popular sport  have passed away from us. It is true  that the  display of  England  in the  drawn match  against the  South  Africans was worthy of our best traditions, but in other rivalries we have  been soundly beaten.   We have taught  our friendly foes    to  play  our own  games,   and   they   have  shown   skill  this year superior to our own.   This is  not to be taken ns a sign of our decadence, though some pessimists may  put    forward    the    contention,    but  rather as an incentive to renewed efforts.   The   leve   of manly   sports   is  instinctive  in   the   Englishman,   and  the defeats of the present year will  nerve him to strive with all ardor for  the recovery of the honors he has lost  Wiggs���������Tillie Topnotes says she is  saddest when she sings.

"Canada is now contributing ��������� 86  per cent, of the lake fish consumed  in the United States." This statement was made by E. Kelly Evana  of Toronto in a paper read before tlie  National Convention at Erie, Pa., recently. "The international problem  of the proper regulation of fisheries  of the great lakes" was the subject  of Mr. Evans' paper, and in it he  treated the boundary question from  the side of a Canadian. He explained that the lake fisheries of Canada  are practically controlled at the present day by capitalists from the United States.  "We   know,"   he   said,   "that  vast  quantities of food fish far below tho  legal   size  are   taken   over  to  Uncle  Sam's domain, and that is our particular sore spot.   We have laws regulating this feature, but it is perfect-  .ly_obvious that their intent is defeated by this practice of the American  fish  companies." The  Canadian  expert suggested the advisability of an  international  conference  to  take  up  the problem.    Following this suggestion a resolution was introduced and  unanimously passed directing the executive   committee   of   the  society   to  communicate with the governors and  heads of the fish commissions in the  several states bordering on the lakes,  with President Roosevelt, the Governor-General of Canada and the Lieutenant-Governor  of   the   Province   of  Ontario, with a view to inducing each  of them to appoint delegates to attend  an informal international conference  at some convenient date.

To induce Canadians to go to Virginia and engage in farming there is  the object of Dr. Henry Smith's visit  to this country.  _ People adjust themselves to conditions, and the conditions are adjusted  by people.   If Canadians are induced  to go to Virginia, it will likely be in  obedience to one of those laws,  but  why anyone should leave this fair province to fill openings in any state of  the   republic   is   difficult  to  answer.  Ontario to-day is calling from every  quarter  for  men  who know  how  to  farm. Despite the flow of immigration  into Ontario,  the farms here are in  too   many, places    being   practically  neglected  because  of the scarcity  of  men to work them. Prom nearly every  district come  reports  of good  prices  and splendid wages.   The able, wideawake   farmer  may  make a  modest  little fortune here to-day.   He surely  can live as well as in Virginia, sunny  and picturesque as it is.   With such  possibilities,   with   such   fertile   land  and rapid industrial and commercial  expansion, why should he leave hid  own land to till the soil under a foreign flag?  Anyone who has traveled over Ontario must agree that it is rich in  everything that makes farming an independent and successful pursuit.  Canada 'needs all her sons at home,  to take care of the productive acres.  She needs their knowledge and interest in domestic affairs. If this province can offer as much as Virpnia  to the progressive and thrifty farmer.  Dr. Smith should not urge our- citizens too "strongly to migrate. Let  the young men who are growing up  in the beautiftd rural districts harbor a fondness for the Held and woodland. Let them appreciate the opportunities that lie before, and remain loyal to their own countryside.���������  Toronto World. I  Incident Which Occurred  During  the   Civil   War.  Here is an old story worth retelling;  it appeared in a recent issue of The  Presbyterian:  "Many years ago some Americans  in crossing the Atlantic were singing  hymns together on a Sunday evening, when an exquisite rich tenor  voice joined in, 'Jesus, Lover of my  8oul.' Another of the singers stopped suddenly to listen, and when tho  glorious voice sang the verso:  'All my trust on Thee is stayed,  j   All my hope from Thee I bring;  Cover my defenceless head   -  With the shadow of Thy wins.'  the    listener   said   to   himself,    'By  George!   It's the very man!'    When  the service was over he went up 10  the man with the glorious tenor and  asked, 'Were you in the Civil War?*  'Yes,' he answered, 'but I fought oa  the side of the( South.   I was a Confederate.'   'Yes,  you were a Confederate, and you were posted as a sentinel at such a post on such a night?1  'Yes,  I  was.    How  did  you  know?*  .'Doesn't   that  hymn   you   have  just  sirhg  tell  you?'   'To  be sure!'  cried  the other.   'I remember now.   I was  posted at sentry duty near the edge of  a wood on a night that was very cold  and  dark,  and,  as  the  enemy  were  known to be near,  I felt unnerved,  homesick, miserable, and to tell the  truth, afraid.  To comfort and encour*  age myself I sang that verse of the  hymn, "All my trust on Thee is stayed," etc., and felt somehow a strange  peace come down upon me which remained  with  me  all  that  long  and  lonely night.'   'Well you might,'said  the other, 'for you owed your life���������*o  that verse and that voice.    I was a  Union soldier, and that night I was  in the wood with a party of scouts.  I  saw  you  standing  at  sentry,   but  could not see your face, and I ordered  my men to cover you with their rifles.    At this moment you broke out  with  that glorious  voice  and  verse,  which  rang  through  the  still  night  and seemed    to    paralyze   my men.  They looked at me when you came to  'Cover my defenceless  head, ���������  With the shadow of Thy wing/  and I answered the look, 'All right,  boys; lower the rifles,' and we stole  back to our.lin_es."       x  It all began when he was youne.

You never see a broken-winded
horse in Norway, said a horse doctor. That is because the horses
there are allowed to.drink while
they eat, the' same as mankind.
Our horses, let them be as thirsty
as get out, must still oat their dry
fodder,' their dry bay and oats and
corn, with nothing to wash them
down. ."Bub in .Norway every horse
has a bucket of water beside, his
manger, and, as be eats, he drinks
also. It is interesting to see how
the "Norwegian horses l'Hisli their

never see a broken-winded horse
in Norway, and tho natives say it-
is because they serve water to the
animals with their feed.
