WARS.    -  In a very humble cot.  In a rather quiet spot,  In the suds and in the soap  Worked a woman full of hope;  Working, singinir, all alone.  In a sort of undertone,  "With a Saviour for a friend,  He will keep me to the end."  Sometimes happening along,  I had heard the semi-song,  Aud I often used to smile,     '  More in sympathy than guile;  But I never said a word ���������  In regard to what I heard,  ���������As she sang about her Friend.  Who would keep her to the end.  Not in sorrow libr in glee,  Working all day long was she,  As her children, three or four,  Played around her on the floor;  But in mouotones thesoi'g,  She was humming all day long,  "With a Saviour for a friend,  He will keep me to the end."  4 It's a song I do not sing,.   ���������  For I scarce believe a thing  Of the stories that are told  Of the miracles of old;  But I know that her belief  Is the anodyne of grief,  And will always be a Friend  That will keep her to the end.  Just a trifle lonesome she,  Ju.=t as poor as poor could be,  But her spirits always rose  Like the bubbles in the clothes;  And though widowed and alone,  Cheered her with the monotone,  Of a Saviour and a friend,  Who would keep her to the end.  I have seen her rub and scrub  Ou the washboard in the tub,  While the bab}-, sopped in suds,  Rolled aud tumbled in the duds;  Or was paddling in the pools  With old scissors stuck in spools,  She still humming of her Friend,  Who would keep her to the end.  Human hopes and human creeds  Have their root in human needs;  And I would not wish to strip  From that washerwoman's lip  Any song that she cau sing,  Any hope that song can bring,  For the woman has a Friend  Who will keep her to the end.  The Barn Dance.  There was a barn dance at White  Horse the other night, and the  society editor of The Star writes  about it as follows:  The hall was decked out in true  barn style, bales of hay being used  as seats. The walls were decorated  with harness., saddles, wagon wheels  forks, sheaves of green grain and  other things typical of farm life.  One box containing chickens decorated one side of the hall and  opposite was another box containing a cat and several kittens. The  back door of the hall was enclosed  by a teuipory .stable and dhe docile  big bay horse of iloland Ryder  stood there all night (���������uicbly eating  from a manger just inside the door.  There were ho cows there for  the reason' that nothing could be  provided for them to chew, all tlie  feed stores being out of cud.

A writer in the Western Clarion  has the following to say about  Owen Sound, Ontario, a local  Option -Town: "Owen Sound is a  nice place. .Its principal amusement is Local Option, a pastime. I  found, that provides the moral  fcttviours of our race with a feeling  of having done their duty to mankind, and also the police force and  magistrate are plentifully supplied  with. cases of drunks, dives and  other accompaniments of prohibition. Of course, I did not leave  theie becauso of Local Option.  They say the unexpected always  happens, and if they imagined they  were going to make the town dry  well the unexpected did happen.  The whole thing is a farce, you  have drinks at breakfast, dinner  and supper. If you are around  one of the hotels, you get plagued  with confidential enquiries as to  whether the bartender is around,  is there any ehauce, have they got  anything? Perhaps luck favors  them and' they get a drink of  whiskey, or rather something iu  a whit key glass which seems to  bear a remarkable resemblauce to  turpentine or wood alcohol colored.  Local Option has just driven the  drinking behind closed doors, but  the drunks go about unblushingly.  They are not drunk;they are doped.  They look like a cross between -a  lunatic and a fellow half stupefied  through some drug. Still I guess  tlnit's enough about it."  Has The Big Heart.  Upon retiring from the management of the Douglas Lake Cattle  company, which .position he held  for twexty-eight years, J. R.  Greaves handsomely remembered  several of the old employees who  have been associated with the big  ranch since the early days.

Other employees also have cause  to look happy.���������Merritt Herald.  A Big Crop.  Peter McMahon was found dead  on his ranch, near.Sidley, last Friday.

How He Traded In thu South During  lhe Civil War and Why He Quit.  By  ALBERT CHITTENDEN  Copyright. 1910, by American 1'ress  .Association.  In 1802;'when President Lincoln fear-  ed that tbe want of cotton by the English and other foreign  manufacturers  might lead to. Intervention;" he  Issued  an order to his generals to give-every  facility I" .ilielr power to persons desiring to pun-liuse the ..article and permit them to ship It on the army wagons going uoriti empty for supplies for '  the troops.    At the time cotton could |  be bought tor u song In the south, nnd '  before the war closed it hud risen to '  a   dollar   a   pound   lu   the   northern!  states, j  I was then young and eager.to'make '  money.    LI living some capital, I   went ,'  down   Inio   Virginia  and   rode  mining j  the plantations In the neighborhood of ���������  the Union untiles, buying ooiion wher- i  ever I  found nn opportunity to get It i  within  our  lines  and  send   It   nurili  !  One day I   hnd; boeir out a few 'miles' j  beyond lhe (,'iik-ii n-dellos to a i>lnilia- '  tion whore I hnd been told was stored ���������  a large slock ot cotton.   There was uo j  enemy  In that direction, and it  there'  were I considered my 'vocation a shield .'  against Interference, for 1  was a eitl- |  zen engaged In assisting the southern' j  planters to turn 'their cotton into mon- ;  e.v.    I bought tifiy bales on condition  that   I   could   get   transportation   for  them and rode buck to the Union lines.  Something about the arrangement of  the camps looked different from what  J  had  left.    Indeed.  1  found a great  deal of difference.    While 1  hud been  away the corps I  had left bad moved  and another had taken' Its place.   The  otlicer of the picket post would not allow me to go where I liked, but took  me   to   the   provost   marshal,   Major  Campbell.  I ^noticed that the moment the provost marshal looked at me he gave a  faintly perceptible start. I told him  who I was and the business I was engaged In. lie listened to my story,  then suid lie would report my case to  the general commanding.: lie left me  to do so and was going so long that,  tired of waiting. 1 was about to mount  niy horse and ride away when a sentry  slopped me. J iisked him why he detained me, and he said that he hnd  been Ordered not to let me leave till  the provost marshal returned.  Major .Campbell rode up as I was  talking with the sentry. He asked -tne  to come into his tent and, getting out  the army demijohn. Invited rue to have  something, lie chatted in a familiar  way, seeming ���������much interested in my  cotton purchases and asking me a  number of questions pertain ing to the  business. Ue : told me that the general would like to see me. but was too  busy to receive me till the next day.  I had left my belongings at a bouse  n short distance lu rear of the army,  nnd when the conversation lagged I  arose and said I would ride there, return In the uiorning aud call on the  general. Major Campbell said that  there was uo necessity for me to go  away, since he would be happy to give  nie a cot In a...tent with a subaltern  otlicer and my men Is at his mess. But  1 said I wished some clean linen and  would prefer to go. At that be told  nie. as politely as possible thnt the  general had directed him to briug me  to his headc'iiarters the next day and  he would not dure risk losing me.  This was equivalent to telling me  thnt I was a tenipora ry quasi prisoner. Nevertheless I did not think  much of the matter, for if permitted  to go I might HorJ it incouvenieut to  return. In that event the major  would be liable to censure for disobedience of orders. So J made a virtue  of necessity, saying that I would be  happy to accept his hospitality.  During the evening 1 played the  army, game with the major and several other officers lu his tent, the  army game being draw poker,   with '  my cotton buying, but he wouldn't listen to It He seemed more interested  In learning where I had been during]  the day I hud come Into his lines and!  the day before that and as far back as  I could remember. Then suddenly h'ej  ceused to take any further interest In'  me or my whereabouts and, calling his  chief of staff, waved me back with thej  others.  Major Campbell rode with us���������why  I didn't know, for he was not of the  I general's personal staff.   Judging from j  his interest lu me, I fancied that he  might have been brought along for tho  purpose of entertaining me.   He kept  calling my attention to this feature of  the   position   and   telling   me   things  nbout lhe number and disposition of  the troops.    They would not have Interested me In the slightest had not his  statement of the different divisions and  brigades   he   declared   were   ou   the  ground'���������'���������'appeared    much    overdrawn.  Out  why should he bother me at all  with these matters, and why should he ���������  desire to make It appear to me that j  the army was stronger than it really!  was?   I was a citizen with no military  knowledge whatever and was content i  Unit these (lory soldiers should slaugb-!  ter one another ad lib. provided 1 could '  make a fortune.  The general called Major Campbell  to him nnd said something In an.undertone. Then the major dropped  buck bui'de me. As he left the general the latter said loud enough to bo  hea rd:  "That plan would never do in tho  world. He who has eyes to see can  see for himself. I'll issue the order as  soon as I get back to headquarters."  1 had no.idea what this rneuut, nor  did i take any interest In It 1 was  getting disgusted at being kept Idle |  nil this while by these autocratic military men. I wanted to get at the  quartermaster, since the general tool:  no Interest in my business affairs, and  secure transportation for the last lot  of cotton I had bought  But a terrible surprise was In store  for me. We had no sooner got back  to camp thau 1 was placed under arrest, with two soldiers standing over  me, ready to shoot me at the slightest  provocation. 1 was not only Indignant���������1 was frightened. No officer  cume near me, so that I was unable  to ask any one what it all meant, except my guards, who told me that alt  they knew about it was that they had  orders to shoot me If 1 made the  slightest move to escape.  The first Information as to my real  position 1 received was when an officer approached me and began to read ;  from a paper be held in his bands.   I)  was too agitated at first to listen to1  or understand It, but presently I gath-'  | ered from It that 1 was charged with'  i beiug a spy and was to be tried for j  that offense by drumhead court niar-  '  tial that very evening.  Everything now gradually became  plain to me. On the supposition that  I had come into their lines for the  purpose of gaining Information .the  provost marshal had reported the fact  to the general, leaving word that I  should not be permitted to go away.  The matter of my Identity beiug supposititious, 1 was not to know that I  was suspected until they were sure of.  their case. This accounted for the in-!  terest I. had excited and for my tent'  mate watching me while 1 took off uiy  clothes. He wished to know if I was  armed. Then while on the tour of inspection they had thought of permitting me to go back to where I came  from to report a greater force than  they mustered. Hut the general had  quashed this plan, sayiug, "He who  has eyes to see can see for himself."  The order be said he would issue was  for my trial, which also meant execution.  In the evening I was taken Into a;  ���������large tent where a number of officers  ���������sat around a pine table lighted with  'candles. One of them stated that I  had been lurking about their camps  and had lieen arrested. But before be-  ilng placed In proper confinement 1 had  taken to my heels, tearing up a paper  as I ran. I had escaped, but the bits  -of paper collected had contained draw-l  ings of their position and memoranda  of the number of their troops. j  An officer acted as my counsel, but  'as he knew no more about me than the,  others his defense was worthless. Lm-'  fortunately 1 had recently sent a lot  of business papers north that would  have proved my identity.

The Indians of West Selkirk Must Go  Farther Into the Wilds.  There was a day when the town of  West Selkirk, pitched out in tlie fer- i  tile valley of the Red River, was the !  pioneer_West in epitome���������shacks, trad- j  ers,   saloons,   and   Indians. ��������� Its   pic-  turesqu'eness  has gone  out  with  the  wheat.   There'are still a few shacks-  more stores, and banks; traders there  are, culling themselves business men,  not bartering,   but  selling  for  cash;  the whisky is sti'l'theni in tall gleaming bottles sold.at long bars,by white-  aproned drawers.   The last vestige of  raw Selkirk-went out recently  when  the redmen, Crees and Suuteaux moved their camp.  The passing of these Indians of Set-  'kirk is the same story as that of the  Songhees  in   Victoria,   who  have got  orders to leave their happy  hunting  grounds because the simple life they  exemplify in thu middle of the jumping British Columbia  town does  not  agree with the live ethics of the city  fathers.   Thu benevolent white gentlemen of Selkirk havo come to the same  conclusion.  They have discoveied tnat  their whisky and other vicious traits  are bad for primitive natures; so 1,200  remnants of warriors have been told  to close up their whitewashed cabins,  pack  up their  tepees at St.  Peter's,  froni which  reserve for many moons  they have  seen  Fate  whistling close  by on the shrieking railway, und beat  their way to  Fisher River,"-a stream  far off on Lake Winnipeg.

According to The New York Times,  Sir James Grant, of Ottawa, the  well-known Canadian physician, believes that he has discovered, not  exactly the elixir ol life, but tit any  rate a means of greatly prolonging  youth, and apparently of bringing  youth back to some extent.  Sir James is himself the best advertisement of his method, for he  possesses amazing vitality for his  age, now nearly 77 years. He is visiting' London', and he looks like a man  in his fifties. His 'secretary, a young  man, says it is difficult to keep up  with the work his employer does.  Two years ago Sir James created a  sensation at a meeting of the British  Association by a paper on the extraordinary rejuvenating powers of  electricity. He has since then treated himself by his own method, with  results that he describes as wonderful,  and lie has also hud much success  with a number of eminent patients  on the other side of the Atlantic. His  treatment consists of electrical applications by means of a special battery  and systematized  massage.  A writer in The Pall Mall Gazette  says he walked with Sir James a distance of half a mile, and could not  help commenting on his vigor and  energy. He asked Sir James if he  wore spectacles, and Sir James replied: -   -  "Yes, I do wear spectacles. I have  worn them for forty years���������until such  time as I began to treat myself with  electricity and massage; to-day I do  almost the whole of my reading and  writing without using any spectacles  at all. My hearing is as good as ever,  and I feel that I have the energy of  a man of 40.  "I notice that your city is full of  taxicabs, but so far as I am concerned I never ride where I can walk,  and, indeed, if I were challenged I  would undertake to run a mile any  day. I can hardly believe that I will  be 77 in August next; certainly, I fe.*l  not more than 45. and for this happy  state of affairs I thank my electrical  treatment."  "Pretty?

One of the most remarkable mail  routes in the world is that which a  letter journeys in getting from Beebe  Plain, Vt., to Beebe Plain, Quebec,  Canada. While the two offices are  within ten feet of each other���������are located in the same room, in fact���������a letter mailed from one office to the other  must make a trip of 294 miles���������67  miles ih Canada and the rest in the  United -States.  The plain, old-fashioned store building, which is situated on the international boundary line, -contains botli  the United States and Canadian offices. There are separate entrances to  each, but both are in the same room,  have the same lobby, and there are  no partitions to mark the division between the domain of Uncle Sam and  the possession of King George.  . "If you mail a letter from the Vermont side addressed to the Quebec  side," says the postmaster, "it goes  from here to the junction, then to  Newport, then to Whites River Junction ami back to Lennoxville, Quebec, over the Boston 'St Maine. There  it is transferred to the Grand Trunk  and goes to a southbound mail pouch,  and comes to Stanstead Junction, and  then back to this same building, a  distance of 29-1 miles.

This may  not be astonishing, for many an innocent man has not only been accused of  but has been bunged for murder, but  what is remarkable In my case Is that  I urn accused of murdeilng myself.  Perhaps this Isn't quite clear. If It  Isn't. It is either because the case Is a  very complicated one or I am not In. a  fit condition of mind to make it clear.  The only way to unravel the matter ho  that it can be understood I.s to tell the  story from the beginning.  Twelve years ago I etiine to Mertford,  o young man of twenty-live, to look for  a job. 1 had no funds, and. not getting a position at once, 1 ran In debt to  my landlady. A mouth passed, uud 1  had found nothing to do. My landlady  told uie ihat if I didn't pay up by the  nest Saturday night she would have  me arrested for a common vagruiii und  swindler.  That same day while walking about  looking for a job I met a man ou the  street who looked so much like the  that I stared at, him us we passed.  lie turned and said:  "You  must be a kin of mine,  look enough  like me to be  my  brother."  "What's your name?" I asked.  "William Iliggins."  "I am Nicholas Van Winkle."  We couldn't trace any relationship,  but he asked me Into .n beer saloon,  where   we   pursued   that   and   other  subjects.   He was an Insinuating fellow  and   wou   my  confidence  so  far  that I told hi in of my financial trouble.   What did he do but whip out a  roll of new, crisp bills and Invite me  to help myself.    I demurred at incurring obligations to a stranger, but he  insisted   and   finally   literally   forced  upon  uie four ten-dollar bills, saying  that  he   was sure from  the  likeness  between   us. we  had  sprung  from  a  common stock and he didn't propose  that any kinsman of his should suffer  so long as lie hnd-pleuty of money.   I  asked him for his address that I might  return  the loan  after getting a position,    lie put his hand on my shoulder and said. "I  won't tell you, lest  you rob yourself to pay me before you  are ready."    With  that  he went out  somewhat suddenly and left me very  much  surprised   at  all" that  had  occurred.  The only thing to do was to consider  the episode a piece of good luck, and.  going to my landlady, 1 gave .her  three of the bills, keeping the other  for current necessities, which I purchased immediately.  The next day a polleemai came to  the house and produced a warrant for  my arrest. The charge was passing  counterfeit money, and the accuser  was a druggist of whom I had bought  a toothbrush and from whom I had  received change for a ten dollar bill.  Of course the generosity of my new  found friend was now perfectly plain  to me. I didn't know aud don't kuow  now what he expected to gain by the  transaction unless he hoped to use me  later. Sly landlady on seeing me  marched away by a policeman under  a charge of passing counterfeit money  took the bills 1 had given ber to her  bank, where they were pronounced  spurious. When I was brought up for  examination both she and the drug-'  gist appeared against me. I told a  straight story, but without effect.  Counterfeit bills had been shoved into  circulation, and the police had been  looking for the shover. I was held  for trial and spent sis weeks In jail.  Then I was tried. As there was no  evidence connecting me with a gang  of counterfeiters, I was acquitted and  released.  But one thought absorbed me���������to get  even  with the man who bod played  the trick on me that had kept me six  weeks in  a  horrible cell and  ruined  me In the place where 1 had intended  to settle.   1 walked the streets hoping  to meet him till I was so weak from  hunger   that   I   couldn't   walk   any  longer, then gave it up.    But all the  while 1  was thinking of a  plan for  revenge.   At last I concocted one that  might catch the counterfeiter aud punish   him   for   something   more   than  breaking the government money laws.  I went to a wood In tbe outskirts of  the town and to a tree pinned a piece  of paper on which I had written In a  trembling hand that I was about to be  murdered  by a  man  who bad forced  me to pass counterfeit money, I  having threatened to put the police on to  him  and  his gang.    I  described  tbe  man who Juid given me tbe spurious  bills.     In   doing  so  of  course   I   described my own personal appearance,  but I didn't care for that, for I proposed to disappear from the place and  play   dead.     Having   taken   this   the  only means I could think of to gain  my revenge, I converted myself Info a  tramp and did uot stop moving until  I had gone some 1,200 miles from the  town where I had hud so much trouble.   At tbe end of my tramp I found  I man who gave me a Job, and I rejoiced  that at last  I  hud  reached &  haven of rest  .One morning I took up a newspaper  rmd read the account of my owu mur-  ier. Kverv effort hai| li������������n mado ������a  r.iid both ir.y body, tli-m! ur ull\e, aua  my murderer. The police bad sent out  thousands of circulars giving ,thc description of Irlni thai I hud written,  und It hud been copied hi many newspapers.  I noticed one day on looking up suddenly at my employer Unit he wus  scrutinizing me. It had occurred to  mc before this (hat my giving a description of tny murderer that would  answer as well for me as for him  might lead to serious compllcuilous.  Indeed, after seeing (he description of  tho mippuH'-d murderer In the newspaper I hnd become very anxious. Tha  raanlt u/uh Unit whim I how but em  ployer looking at me as If comparing  me with tbe description I turned pale,  lie looked away, and that ended the  matter, at least for the time.  Several days later a man came Into  the store whero I worked, had some  words with my employer and then,advancing toward me. eyed nie sharply;  then he took a printed slip from bis  ppeket and referred to it. evidently  comparing me'with it. At last he took  out a pulr of handcuffs, put them on  my wrists und led me- out of the  store. It dldu't occur to me to protest or to ask any questions. I knew  I was to he taken back to the scene of  JJ my former, troubles to answer to the  charge of having murdered myself.  It didn't, appear to me then that I  should have any trouble In identifying  myself. I resolved to say that 1 had  succeeded In getting away from 'the  man who had intended fo murder .me  and had left that part of the country  altogether. It didn't occur to me that  such.a story in the face of a charge  of murder would appear pretty thin.  The Hi-Hi realization of uiy dun.ger.that  came to nie was Iu talking with the  ollicial who was taking me back to  Men ford. I told him the story just  as I have thus far told it here. And  what was hls'commenlV It was this:  "Young man, if you can't make up  a better yarn than that you'd better  he 1'i'i'pared for Ihe worst."  This starlled mo. 1 had deemed it"  a misfortune to be taken buck to  .Mertford on a case of mistaken 'identity and lo he put to the trouble of an  explanation, but that I would be liable  (o conviction for murdering my own  self hud appeared so monstrous that it  hud not even cult-red my head.  "if you can't prove tin alibi," added  my keeper, "you're gone."  "What's an alibi?" 1 asked.  "Being somewhere else at the time  the murder was committed."  "But   1  shall   prove  that   I  am  the  man 1 am accused of murdering."  He turned and regarded me with a  cynical smile.  "See here." he said, "I've been mixed  up with cases like yours for twenty  years. Juries ure ready fo" believe a  lot of rot from a prisoner with whom,  they sympathize, but my advice to  you is not fo endeavor to work off on  them any such rubbish as that."  .This frightened me. I leaned back  on the cushion o^f the seat as well'us  my handcuffs would permit and gave  myself-over to the most gloomy reflections.  When we reached Mertford and I  had been examined, not having any  means with which to employ counsel:  I was assigned oue. He came to the  jail and heard my explanation. When  It was finished he said that he would  not think of conductiug ti case on any  such Improbable line us thut and If I  Insisted on his doing so 1 must And  another defender.  What was I to do? All these people  who were used to such cases agreed  that I must not claim that I was myself.' I asked my lawyer whom he  thought I'd better claim to be. lie  said that It didn't muke any difference  what my name was. Criminals usually bud plenty of names and used such  us were convenient under different circumstances. The only point in my favor, he added, was thut the body of  tbe man I had murdered hail not been  found. lie would make as much of  this as possible aud expected that he  would be would be able to get mo off  with a sentence of life Imprisonment  Instead of death.  lie seemed to consider this quite a  comforting assurance. For myself 1  thought that even Imprisonment for  life hi the case of one who had committed murder on himself or suicide,  if it can be so construed. Is rather  hard lines. However. I told my lawyer that I wouldn't venture to suggest  a line of defense to one who knew the  law perfectly, and he might consider  me cither dead or alive, innocent or a  murderer, us he saw Ut. To this he replied that there hud undoubtedly been  casus where a lawyer knew his client  to be Innocent, but Ilie evidence had  bceu so strong against him that be has  advised him to plead guilty and throw  himself on the mercy of tho court.  I wou't go into the details of the  trial. My lawyer was congratulating  himself that he would get me off with  a life sentence when the police, who  bad long suffered before the public  for what was considered their negligence, in the case of my murder, by  continued digging in the wood where  I- had, been murdered unearthed a  body.' I learned long afterward that  it came from a corner of an old burial  lot. Rut It was enough, with all the  other convincing evidence against me,  to hung mc.  The only bit of good luck I have had  ot all has been lhe capture of the gang  of counterfeiters to which my double  belonged. I begged my counsel so hard  to find him that to humor me he did  so. The result was the bringing Into  court the real murderer of the man  who was uot murdered. Which of us  would have had to swing for tlie murder If the other one bud been absent  I don't know. I am going out a free  roan, and I propose to disfigure myself  no that  I  will never again look Hk������  IS NOW IN RUINS.  B.C.'  la  First   Government   House  Fast   Disappearing.,  Scarcely twenty miles from Victoria,  British Columbia, as the crow flies,  hut almost as,far removed as the Pole  for all the acquaintance which residents of this Provincial Capital have  with it, or with the circumstances of  its erection and occupancy, one of  the truly historic buildings of British  Columbia is fast crumbling with decay. Unless action is soon directed  toward the preservation of this landmark of pioneering days and of the  infancy of; popular Government on  Vancouver island, the obliteration of  the first Government House erected  and occupied as such in this western-'  most colony of the British Empire  must within a few short succeeding  years be made complete.  At present the strong, rough-hewn,  low    walls    still    stand    staunchly,  though.many gaping wounds bear testimony to the severity of Time's assaults.   Doorways and windows yawn  vacantly; the roof and the main chimney   of country-rock, have fallen in;  and   moss  and   creeping vines  strive'  with'a pitiful bravery to veil and even  make   beautiful   the   hideousness   of  ruin and  forgotfulness.    In  one  end  of the abiding place in time long past  of gubernatorial dignity and splendor,  a couple of alien miners have, with a  patchwork of coal-oil tins, evolved a  nondescript and grotesque habitation;  while what  was once the governor's  garden  humbly  bears tribute to  ihe j  productiveness of the soil in the thrift  of   the   Chinese   squatters   in   yearly  dividends of onions, beans, and potatoes.   Two  or throe   times a  season,  perhaps,   some   hunter,   ranging   far  afield, pauses for a moment either to  look at the crumbling threshold or to  take  toll  of the  two  neglected apple  trees    which    sentinel    the '-portals,  planted   by   the   governor's   winsome  daughters in the long ago.  Gone are the stalwart miners with  their high hopes, nnd abiding faith in  nature's bounty���������the campers of the  argonaut army���������the sights and sounds  of exuberant and optimistic mining  camp activity. What was in 1864 and  18G5 the busiest community in Western America, just such a typical camp  as Bret Harte pictures in his Nevada  classics, has once again reverted to,  the wild. The ruins of the Government House, fragments of slowly decaying flume, worm-eaten rockers,  crumbling cabins, and an occasional  Chinese miner, ��������� the vulture of the  mining comp whose day is over,���������  these remain to mark the brief but  spectacular chapter in Vancouver island's history when all eyes were  turned, toward the confluence of the  Leech River and the Sooke, and  Leechtown, at the junction, was for  the nonce the focal' point of public  interest.  Dr. Brown, who was. among the first  to explore the interior of Vancouver  island, and who 'made a somewhat  celebrated journey across, sent the  news of tlie discovery of gold "in one  of the forks of the Sooke River,'"and  his despatch, dated July 21, 1864, created much excitement, not only in  Victoria, but all along the gold-fever-  stricken coast.  Nuggets as hi**h in value as $70 were  picked up. and as much as $35 a day  was  earned.    It   was  estimated  that  ?30,0C0 was taken out of Leech River  in-little more than a month after the  excitement had it* birth.   The discoveries drew hundreds, if not thousands,  of  people from  Victoria  and  beyond  to the district, and for a short time  the 'population   of   Leechtown   and  thereabouts     considerably  " exceeded  that of Victoria.   Naturally the head  of the Government found it both interesting and  desirable to follow the  people, and the community of miners  erected a substantial and pictu'-osque-  ly placed large house of logs for the  comfortable   accommodation   of   Governor Kennedy and his two fascinating daughters���������the young ladies who,  with some little ceremony planted the  U  ��������� '       .   /'*-J'V   V'i1*-/'  '-     ' '   & ">.\Ay������-rt-J}J  ' ' .-..-.;-,'..*>m  Sn-  A "FRliir-il-TIVES" MIMCUE  V.-  ������������������ .;.."-* <rh  '\:,i:'-'-8',  "' V.-'t'J''M  ���������". .'I    >  -,':*  MRS.

Thirteen bylaws  made a bii- program nnd large excitement. With twelve of the bylaws  the citizens agreed; especially one  which has taken them two years to  smooth out the wrinkles. This proposition was to allow a corporation  called the Saskatchewan Power Co.  the right of harnessing the river near  Saskatoon, handing over to them the  job of turning the factory wheels of  the town. The power plant will go  up���������cost one million dollars; guaranteed to sell the juice at the rate of  between thirty an*", thirty-five dollars.  Altogether, this power scheme is  quite tlie most metropolitan feature  which litis developed in Saskatoon  during its history. Which is saying  a great deal. Seven years ago, Saskatoon was a hundred people in  shacks connected with the outside by  a very shaky and erratic stub railroad. In 1003, there were seven  thousand people in the town���������double  what there were in ItlOC. In three  years the assessment jumped from  $750,000 to seven million.

Suppose every business man in town  took as much interest in the upholding of the town and forwarding  all public enterprises as the newspaper man. lie works for railroads, nianufiietories, schools and  churches, good streets and roads-  urges, pleads, seolds and badgers  and cavorts around generally..  Imagine his feelings then when  some blamed one-horse kind of a  fellow reproaches him becanso he  don't boom things enough. If the  town does boom and tlie prices of  real estate advance and the owners  grow rich from the result of his  labor, he makes nothing by it. lie  is like the poor boy at the picturf-s  without the necessary quarter to  gain admission.  Advertising seems to be an art  yet to be. discovered by some people. That is, the practical part of  it. A constant stream of water  from one or more hydrants will  soon extinguish or get under control a very large lire, while a few  buckets of water, dashed on here  and there, have little or no effect.  The modern (ire department is  practical, and has outgrown the  bucket system; and so with modern advertising���������plenty of it, used  in a practical, common sense and  judicious manner, pays.

OLIYER,  It is not infrequent that newspapers find themselves unappreciated by the men whom they have  favored by their support, column  after column being published in  their favor and yet such favors  when tlie test comes, are unappreciated. When you find your home  paper taking no interest in your  success, when you find it keeping  aggraviitingly silent when you  think the editor should be tearing  his linen in your behalf, do not  work yourself into a fever of  anxiety as to, the cause, but just  ask yourself wherein have you  placed tho paper and its editor  under obligations to use space and  and eneigyfor you.  Savant Commends Hebrew Diet,  but Fruitarian Difiers,  The people of Britain, especially  town woikerVi, can do a great deal  toward stamping out tuberculosis  ���������by copying the Jewish prescriptions  with.regard to food, says Dr. Allison, a prominent English physician  and an authority on food values.  Iu a lecture, Dr. Allison set up tho  example of the Hebrews, a-race  which was, he said, practically immune from consumption.  The Jewish people, he maintained, through centuries of oppression  had survived because it was the  best fed race on earth. Jewish  mothers were greatly to be commended for bringing up their ehi>  eren on fatty foods.  Professor R. A. Sampson does  not agree with Dr. Allison on this  point. Iu the Fortnightly Review  he makes this plea for the fruitarian diet.  "Perfect fruit alone can meet  the demands of the human system,  perfect fruit, alone can stimulate  the intellect, perfect fruit alone  can calm the passions, perfect  fruit alone can control the feverish  activity of the arterial pulsations,  which otherwise, engendered by  the consumption of inilamatory  foods and drinks wear out the human machiue long before its natural time."
