Considering1 the poor atmospheric  conditions the above was a creditable showing. Lamond win's the  spoon as Wheeler, Hay and Hutton ,  have already won spoons at previous shoots.  The annual shoot will take place '  within three or four weeks time.  The secretary has already' received  several-5valuable  prizes- amongst   ,  which.are Lady Buller's-annual .  prize; E.

How?   By-failure on his-part to  observe sufficient, precantions  in  lighting or  (more * important still)  in extinguishing' his camp fires; in  carelessly dropping his still-burmng  match,  cigar^. or cigarette end; or  in the usoof combustible gun-wads  which,  smouldering after the shot  is fired,  perhaps hours after the  hunter has gone his way, all unsuspecting the mischief of which  he has been guilty,  ignites to dry  grasses and thus sows the seeds of  flame which  grow   with amazing  rapidity into a forest conflagration.  For the fact  must never be lost  sight   of that the   Autumn,   the  sportsman's especial season of delights,  is also the season of dry  and tinder-like conditions in the  woods.   /  As for   combustible   gun-wads,  they are a very common and   in  this Province generally disregarded  source of   danger to the   woods.  Across the-1 international line they  are so fully recognized as a forest  menace that their use is made a  criminal offense, to which exceptional penalties are attached.    Here  in British Columbia as yet'the law  does not insist upon the exclusive  use of non-combustible gun-wads,  but it is the obvious duty,  as it  should be the pleasure, of each good  citizen,  to  adopt and   use   none  other.    The forest danger of the  the   discarded   cigarette-end   was  terribly illustrated  in   the  great  Porcupine district horror of last  summer, involving appaling loss in  lives and property.   Camp fires as  a   common  origination   cause   of  forest fires are too well recognized  and satistically attested to leave '  room for argument as to the urgent  necessity for the exercise of every  precaution in building or abandoning.them.  ' (I therefore need scarcely state  my firm belief, that the prosperity  of Canada depends upon its permanent connection with the Mother  Country, and that I shall resist to  the utmost any attempt (from  whatever quarter it may come)  what may tend to weaken that  union."���������From Sir John Mac-  Donald' b first electorial address.

It believes  in justice to everyone; from the man who mucks in the mine to the.  king, who sits on the cushions of the throne. It believes that advertising is the life of trade ; and that one of the noblest works of  creation is the man who always pays the printer.

TO THE FARMERS  Bfj-ouk crossing their ballots  next week the farmers of Canada  should ponder a few minutes over  the following facts:  From 1SS0 to 1900, 15,3'H farms  in New England, with an acreage  of 5,000,000 acres were abandoned.  The 17,000 United States farmer** who were forced off the land  had free access and splendid railway communication to this market,  'of 90,000,000.  In 1907 the United States exported 70,000,000 bushels of wheat  and as matters now stand that fine  country could raise enough wheat  for'a market of 400,000,000.  In 1901 the   United ' States   exported 1G,000;000 barrels of   flour.  Farm lands in Ontario are fully  100 per cent, higher in value than  in the United States.    ���������  ������������������     Live stock and general farm pro-  . duce on the   whole   commands   a  higher price in Canada than in the  United States.  Comparative figures of the price  of hogs in Chicago and Montreal  for 1910 .show ruling price in Chicago =SS. 90, Montreal 89.00.  In January of this year the  wholesale price of eggs in Toronto  averaged four cents a dozen higher  than in Buffalo.*. Canada imported  757,.'516 dozen of eggs from the  United States in 1910, and exported but 39, 917 dozen to the States.  Reciprocity would give the U. S.  fanner a market in Canada for his  surplus products, but would at the  same time effectually swamp the  Canadian farmer.  TnE mining business has been  sadly overlooked by the f ram era of  the reciprocity proposition. Canada admits American metallic zinc  free. It would have been true reciprocity if the United States had  placed the zinc ores of the British  Columbia mines on the free list.  Canadian cobalt ores enter the  United States free, but our cobalt  oxides are subject to a heavy duty.  This places a handicap on five  Canadian smelters and tends to  drive our ore to American reduction plantB. So with nickel. The  United States which has no nickel  of its own admits our nickel ore  and nickel matte free of duty, but  maintains a prohibitive duty of 0  cents a pound on refined nickel.  This prevents the establishment of  a nickel refinery in this country  whero the source of supply exists,  Wc take American  refined   nickel  frrio of duty. This is tho whole  ���������story.    The Americans insist upon  transferring tho manufacture of  Canadian raw materials to United  States torritory to the disadvantage  of Canadian workmen. It is so  with corundum, graphite and bar-  ite.  As an instance of acute hydrophobia, it is difficult to surpass the  story of the Scotch boatman who,  while crossing a loch, was asked if  ho would take some water with his  whisky, and replied: "Na, there  was a horso drooned at the1 head o'  tho loch twa years ago." The  head of tho loch was twenty-four  miles distant.  Laughter is Nature's rest cure  for tired nerve's. ' Lct'er go, Bill���������  ha, ha, ha I  ���������In South America  From the miner's standpoint  Chili is the most interesting.. Her  greatest wealth is derived from her  vast nitrate beds. She is called the  "Shoe String" state from her long  narrow coast line, lying between  the Pacific and the Andes. And  they speak of the natives as the  ���������'Yankees" of the South. From  what I have seen of them I am not  quiet sure whether this is complimentary to ourselves or not. At  any rate, though her population is  but small,  she .has"-accomplished  ���������     .l **     **  much in  the 'way,of railroads and  her army and navy, and her neighbors havo a most wholesome respect  for  her 'fighting qualities.    Comparing her size  with some of the  other republics,   she   makes one  think 'of a game   little   bantam,  which by sheer grit and pluckiness  has overawed the whole,barnyard.  There are .three   things   which  militate against the mining interests  in  all  South  America',  the same  trinity of evil that discourages the  mining man in  Mexico,  and these  are the lack of adequate transportation facilities, lack" of. fuel���������coal  sells for over nine ' dollars a ton at  wholesale and is most of it imported���������and  the   everlasting    "hired  girl question,   except that-in this  case it is a man, or what'passes for  such,  instead   of a   "girl."    The  peon of South  America has an exaggerated 'i respect for his   saint's  day, as has his proto-type in Mexico.    He much prefers sleeping in  the sun and letting his sins ooze  out from the pores of his skin, for  the glory of God, than to swinging  a pick in an honest-day's work.  In this connection it has been truly  said:    "No man works on Sunday,  which  would  be commendable if  that day were not given over to excessive  drinking  and carousal, so  that Monday is needed in which to  to taper off and sober up."  Practically no work is done on  thirty to forty feast days, on fifty-  two Sundays, on fifty-two Mondays  and on three hundred and sixty-  five nights during the year. Add  to this a few strikes and a few off  for sickness, several more for  drunkenness, some times. for weddings and funerals and other events  that keep the laboring man from  his toil, and the year is badly  broken up.''  This propensity for keeping  Saint's days was often an annoyance to the Bluecher's tourists. It  was very exasperating after sailing  all these miles to find on landing  that there was nothing moving but  a procession.  Then again South America manufactures very little���������Chili nothing at all���������and things are exceedingly expensive. Nearly every  thing is imported which means  customs duties, and there is also a  tariff between tho different republics. In Santos, Brazil, shoes that  in New York retail for about 83.50  a pair, costs, from $11 to 810. A  ham there is worth from 830 to 8-10.  A lunch which three of our party  took there, consisting of sandwiches  and. a glass or two of lemonade  each, came to over 830. At Buenos  Aires, Argentine, a pair of shoe  strings to lace aforesaid shoes, were  25 cents. At Valparaiso, away  across the continent in Chili, they  charged 40 cents to launder one  collar. I'say"one." Of course  at this rate none but a multi-millionaire could afford to have a doz  en. Punta Arenas'is almost at the  entrance of the Straits of Magellan  and ; there I was charged 40 cents  for one cup of chocolate and it  didn't have any whipped cream in  it either. An ordinary suit of  clothes could not be bought for loss  than 8100.  The prospector, if he wore a poor  man, would not cany with him tho  traditional frying pan and "side  meat" but would have, dried beef  and drink Yorba Mate, or Paraguay  tea which is'much used in South  America in place of eofl'ce. It has a  slightly bitter smoky taste, can bo  taken with lemon or cream, and  must bo drunk very hot. The  Indians chew tho leaves, which  have somothing the same stimulating eil'ect that the leaves of the  coco plant has. He would not lack  for burros lo carry his pack. Poor  little wretches, with their starved  bodies and sore backs, they suffer  from the cruelty and neglect which  seems all too often tho portion of  any animal in this part of tho  world, I saw one so small m Valparaiso that a'friend oll'crod to buy  it for mo to uso as a watch charm.  While these conditions may seem  rather unfavorable to an American  minor, at least-the Chilian government does all in its power to attract mining capital. The laws are  fair. Fifteen hectares���������a hectare  is about two and a half acres���������constitute a discovery claim. Compulsory work is not required to fix'  title, and the tax is only about  twenty-five cents a year, gold.  Punta Arenas is rather a forlorn  looking place.    It is  built mostly  of one storey hous������s, rather poor in  construction,   though  there are a  few better buildings.    There are  wide streets but no trees of any  kind except where there is a high  wall ,to protect them from the ever  lasting winds which sweeps up here  night and'day from   the  Antarctic  circle  and  Cape   Horn  way and  makes trees' an impossibility.    It  only stops  blowing  to  blow some  more.    An old priest in exhibiting  to me some preserved  fruits said  they all grew  on  the ground "for  we have no trees.    The wind won't  let them grow"    In looking at the  town  from  the ship in the grey  light of the early morning it seemed  like one vast graveyard  all filled  with square tombs.    And in a way  it is a grave yard where have died  honor and honesty and  the things  a man lives for.    Tunta   Arenas  has many  ex-convicts,   and   men  whose country prefers their absence  to their presence.    At one time it  was a   convict   colony   for Chili.  The convicts revolted,   were subdued and moved to another place.  It is now a place of banishment  for political  offenders.    It would  seem that there .still  lingers some  of the old leaven.    One of us put  down a   pocket/book   containing  about ten dollaJs * for a moment in  one of the stores, and no trace of it  even was found.    A. small boy with  us remarked he "finked" it might  be carried away by a cat. Possibly.  One can imagine almost any meanness on the part of a cat.    One of  our tourists  wandering   over  the  place met an Irishman*, who told  him he had been in Pnuta Arenas  fpr thirty-years.    He did not seem  in the least happy over it and my  friend asked him how he happened  to come.    "Oh," he said,   "I just  jumped my ship."   There was an  awkard pause and then he said,  "Now the   next thing  for you to  ask me is, why   don't I go away?"  The inquiry  was not made.   The  thermometer stood at 4S that day  and overcoats and   furs   for  the  ladies were in order.    The natives,  however, wero running around in  light attire.    They said it was the  warmest   day thoy had had this  year, for February with us,   is the  glad old summer time in Chili,  On March 29th, when we were-  nearing tho end of our trip, the  Bluecher took us to La Brea about  38 miles from Trindad, West Indies  to sec the wonderful Trindad pitch  lake. This is circular in form,  from 90 to HO acres in extent.  Borings of 100 feet have been made  in a futile effort to find its depth.  At present it is being worked by an  American company, the Now Trinidad Asphalt Company Limited  with headquarters in Ohio, I think.  They aro allowed to mine 110,000  tons a year and pay royalty on each  ton. I was told it could be dug  for $1.50 a ton, "shipped to New  York for $3.50. and sold there for  $20 a ton. They get some petroleum which is used to run tho plant.  To save space in freighting the  asphalt is melted and put into  barrels. Negro labor is employed,  but all the head men are whito.  The lake is half a- mile from ,the  shore, on tho top of a hill.' The  company takes advantage of this  and loads the stuff on a wire' con_  nected with the wharf and gravity  does the res.t. Tho pitch is dug up  in any old spot to the depth of from  two to six feet a day. In twenty-  four hours the place is filled up  once more in quite a mysterious  manner. The bottom of the hole  is pushed up to the top by some  powerful force underneath. It  does not ooze in as one would expect. The lake is soft and yielding  and yet not like quick sand. I  have a photo of a negro who posed  for one of our camera fiends, sunk  up to his knees in- it.' He .had  somewhat of a struggle to'get himself out and his big ugly feet made  quiet a loud "plop" as he finally  emerged. Here and there on the  asphalt were seams or crevices filled with beautifully clear water.-  Some ono said there were fish in  them but we did not see any. ��������� One  negro said he caught them eight  inches long. Probably ho was a  candidate for the Ananias Club.  Tiny jets of gas spurt up. through  this water which make a small  llarao if a match is applied. Seated  flat on the asphalt were several  negro women doing laundry work.  The problem of doing up dainty  garments for their children certain-  Ip could not have troubled them  very much as nearly every pickaninny was running around absolutely  naked.-JEAN M.

No Doctor's Bills in Japan  A Japanese doctor never dreams  of asking a poor patient for a fee.  There ia a proverb among the medical fraternity of Japan that says,  "When the twin enemies, poverty  and disease^ invade a home, then he  who takes aught from that home,  even if it be given him, is a robber. "'  ���������'Often," remarked a recent lecturer on life in Japan, '-'a doctor  will .not only give his time and  medicine free to the sufferer, but  he will also give him money to tide  over his dire necessities. Every  physican is his own dispenser, and  there are very few apothecaries-  shops in theempire.  '-When even a rich man call3 in  a doctor he does not expect that he  wili receive a bill for medical services; in fact, no such thing as a  doctor's bill iB known in Japan, although nearly all modern practices  are in vogue there. The strict  honesty of the people does not make  it necessary for the doctor to ask a  fee. When he has finished his  visits to the patient a present is  made to him, jnst as much as the  patient can afford. The doctor  smiles, bows, thanks his patient,  and the transaction is at an end."

Drawing  the parallell nearer home the leading paper of Phoenix says that   in  this province   hundreds   of   cases  could be cited. At the present time  men are roughing it in remote parts  of the province, while nearer civilization, and oven   along   the   steel  highways ot the country aro   to be  found the riches they seek   in less  accessible places.    As an   example  take   tho    Boundary    and   other  southern parts of the province, and  right here in   Phoenix.    Men   are  predicting, foolishly of course,  the  speedy depletion of tho ore   in   its  mines, and looking far   afield   for  other sources of supply,   seemingly  oblivious to the fact that ^within a  short distance of the Granby shafts  are to be found immense bodies   of  ore capable of being mined   in the  same economical manner as that of  the other big mines of the district.  Only recently a party of visitors ac  complished the journey in ten minutes from the Brooklyn Hotel and  were shown acres of identically the  same formation as that which char  acterizes the famous Granby mines.  The   property  referred to' is   the  Marshall   group     of   copper-golfl  claims, all crown-granted, comprising in all nearly nine  full   claims.  A test of a 500-lb lot shipped   to a  local smelter yielded a   return   of  S5.80 per ton.   The G. N. railway  crosses the   group,   while   electric  power for all purposes   is close at  hand.    A standing offer   fo*r   two  years of $40,000 was made for. this  group by- New   York   capitalists,  but was turned down by owners,  Messrs. J. Marshall, T.   Roderick  aud others.   Scattered throughout  the Boundary are scores   of   other  properties with equally promising  futures, only awaiting the   advent  of the capitalist and engineer.    To  the ordinary, laymen   these   statements may appear illusionary   and  farfetched, but to the mineralogist  and government surveyor its truth  has long since been established.

P&'ota-by Elliott ���������V.FntiJdBAli)  MRS    HUMPHRY WARD  England's Great Woman  Novelist  Literary prophecies, like boomerangs, should be handled with extreme  caution���������they are so prone to recoil. When Matthew Arnold affirmed that no'  Arnold could ever write a novel, he did not look sufficiently far into the future  to seo Mrs. Humphry Ward, the daughter of his brother Thomas, recognized'  as the greatest woman novelist of her generation.      ���������    ���������. '; , *  She was born in Tasmania in 1851, and when six years old was brought  by her parents to England.   Her father, a college professor, changed.his college as frequently as his religion; his intense conscientious yearning for aLso-  lute truth whirling him from one faith to another like a cork'caught in the"  eddy of a stream, and making him the fit prototype of "Robert Elsmere."  At the age of fourteen, when the family migrated to Oxford she breathed"  the University atmosphere that was joy to her heart. ' She acquired knowledge as naturally as a bird learns to sing! and she was known as a marvelous  linguist, being as perfect in German, French, Spanish and Italian as if each  were her native tongue. At twenty-one she was married to Thomas Humphry-  Ward, one of the university dons, whose "work as author, editor, critic, has '  given him a place in English literature. She was ambitious to write, and her  ���������earliest efforts were so weighted with learning and researchi that they were  as heavy as dumb-bells and fit only for scholars to read when they wanted  to get away from pleasure. She wrote many articles for the "Dictionary of-  Christian Biography," which paid little in coin but more in credit. C  Mrs. Ward was thirty-one before she undertook real fiction with "Miss -  Bretherton," followed* four years later by "Robert Elsmere," which captured  the reading public of two continents.  Before this, it is true, she had written 'a  child's story, a pale-complexioned, anaemic piece of work, fitly named "Millie  and Ollie."   Her translation of "Amifil's Journal" from French into English '  was an exquisite literary gem, expressing so perfectly the subtle windings'  of the thoughts and emotions of the simple Swiss professor, that it seems  as if he himself must have re-thought his whole diary in English, without   ���������  the touch of a translator. "David Grieve," which" paid its author over $100.'-  *  000, and others which paid fully as much, soon, followed, among them  "Sir"'  Geprge Tressady," "Helbeck of Annisdale," "Eleanor"  and,"Lady Rose's '  Daughter." "In her beautiful country home, in Hertfordshire, she does her  literary work, seeking to escape from the storm of publicity her books have' "  aroused and avoiding all society but a little band of devoted friends.

The C. P. E. is offering  single fare rates for the round trip  from Vancouver to Medicine Hat,  and all intermediate points.  Among other attractions will   be  James E. Hardy who is known the  world over as   "The  High   Wire  King," and who has   recently   returned from Europe will be the big  aerial feature attraction.   He will  introduce his great disrobing   act,  provoking roars of  laughter,   and  providing amusement for everyone.  Do not fail to see   Hardy   when  he shows up as Weary Willie.   He  will introduce  his   famous  night  walk across the Niagara "Whirlpool  Rapids by crossing his wire  blindfolded and with his feet  and   legs  tied in a sack.   He will also introduce his great chair balancing feats'  acknowledged to be the   most   remarkable exhibition of nerve  and  skill ever witnessed; and his other  daring feats will include his   wonderful bicycle riding act in 'mid-air  He will perform upon an ordinary  street bicycle, with simply the tires  removed, and will execute upon it  feats which few would   undertake  to do on terre  firma.   The   other  feats which Hardy will  introduce  into his daily program will include  many of the " stunts"   that have  secured for him the well  deserved  reputation of being the greatest and  most artistic high wire  performer  the world has over known.  agSEsmsaassam  ���������4  imi-Ji i-i ^���������.-t.'r-fjf .Jim  r������ ������  I   1  -f^-ll-    41 i  ^^^^^M^US^s^tv  W  gl  w  fit .V  ��������� 'iii-- m* ���������i''-  !-!��������� 1hB'MI"Wll-.il'  'HT^SSSKSMsg
