The tragedy of Wednesday morning took from our
district, not merely our member of the Provincial House,
but  a man,, and  a friend.    Men  and  women  of every
party and of no party mourn the passing of John McKie,
"Houest John" he has often been called and no man   iu
our province had a better ciaim to  the  title.    Uprightness and integrity were as naturally a part of his-life as
breathing.    A good man, who ''loved Our  Nation" and
labored continually   for   the   welfare  of   his   fellows.
True, he had  not had an  opportunity of proving his_^
������worth, at Victoria, but, as citizens, we were assured none
could.better represent our cause.    In Church  circles, in
Lodge meetings, his friendly counsel  aud  active assistance will be sorely missed.    The memory  of  his kindly
'^fersonality, considerate,-helpful, and sympathetic nature
will long endure iu our midst.    In  deepest sorrow  and
with loving sympathy we would assure Mrs. McKie and
family .that their sorrow is truly ours also, and we commend them to Him who  alone can  bind  up  the broken
: hearts and comfort all who mourn.
The late lamented John" McKie was born in Dumfries, Scotland, on Nov. 16, 1874. He came to Canada
many years ago, settling in Vancouver where he received
bis education, v He moved to Grand Forks 23 years ago
and built up a very,successful business under the name
of the Bouudary Iron Works. As a Lodge man he ranked higti in the Masonic order, being a Past Master of
Harmony Lodge arid also represented the district as
Deputy Grand Master. Besides his widow, he leaves
two. sons, Reid aud Fred, aud one daughter, Marion.
The funeral service will be held in Grand Forks on Friday. Oct. 31st at 2.30 p.m. and on Saturday morning the
remains will be shipped to Vancouver where - interment
will take place in the family .plot.

New X-Ray
Possible      to      S2e      Through     Solid
Substances  With   New  Invention
New X-r,iy machines by means ot
which on<^ Jiuiy loul. through walls and
lloors as i.-usily ;is u physician or dentist now examines subcutaneous parts
ol' his patient's body have been perfected.' 'flu. inventor:, are Dr. W. I"J.
Oool'idge and his associates in the research laboratory of tho General Electric Company.
The new apparatus, an oil immersed
portable outfit in a box 7x1X10 inches
.and weighing but 30 jiounds, i.s expected to prove of great value, especially
to plumber.1., building contractors,
electricians and jewelers.
To use the new device it. will only
be necessary to connect an ordinary
extension cord to the nearest lamp
.socket or base plug of the household
lighting system, and then X-rays may
bo" produced by simply pressing a button.
Hereafter, the inventor says, the
.man who wishes to hang a picture, on
fhe wall and doesn't know where to
find a solid place to drive a nail will
not have-to ruin the wall before fmd-
ingjUicriglu spot. The new machine-
may also prove a blow to smugglers,
should customs oilleials use the device
iu searching for secret chambers in
trunks nnd'bags.
Jewelers, it is said, will be able.to
detect spuri.ous gems at a glance by

trade back to'the South Seas, Ftitida

Old Copper Bolts
' Found   Uncorroded
Salvaged From French Sloop Under
Water For 100 Years
The historic French sloop Natalie,
said to have been the vessel on which
Napoleon escaped from exile on the
island of Klba, in JSJ5, was dug from
the surf.sands of .Monterey Bay, Cal..
recently. Parts of the old craft were
salvaged for museum purposes.
For the third time in ihe last '-5
years the lidos had exposed, the hulk,
at least what the waters of nearly 100
years had left of it, and II."J. Leppert,
ia blacksmith, iook advantage of the
j opportunity. Wading out into the
water he saw that the sands slowly
were covering the timbers and realized that by morning there probably
would not be a trace of the vessel in
sight, lie returned to his shop, got. a
jackserew aud a crowbar and enlisted the aid of tin co friend.-;. The four
men worked until nearly midnight.
with the high tide about their shoulders and necks, before ihcy succeeded in forcing loose the k-akwood
stumps of tho Natalie.
Finally they assembled on ihe bench
eleven "'knees," four large timbers, 13
copper bolts, and smaller parts of the
vessel. A remarkable feature was
the perfect preservation of the eovper
bolts, which showed no signs of corrosion after ihe. tides of a century had
washed them. The men reported that:
other portions of the Natalie were loo
deeply embedded to be removed. -..
The Natalie was blown ashore hjzrc,
in 1833 when the crew, a gang of.
smugglers from Mexico,, abandoned
her to attend a Cascarone . ball at
Monterey. As Ihe crew danced'at the
old Spanish fiesta,"a' storm arose and
the vessel was beached.
She was subsequently dismantled
and part of her timber was used to
build the Abrego -House ih Monterey.
Her bow is in the M. II, de Young
Memorial- Museum in Golden Gate
Park. San Francisco.

Mr. Justice Riddell was careful .not
to rcmark'that Canadians were a-nation' of chronic kickers, which would
be Quito.a different thing, and which
would lead to disastrous results. Canadians are not chronic kickers, objecting to and knocking every project or
proposal. "But when it. .comes to
something'they really do not like, the
people of this country have shown
their ability to makefUhe most vigorous protests,-or to kick hard.      ~.

The latest explorations into the

Winnipeg.���Wheat is being sold by
the western wheat-' pools much more
advantageously on sample than on'
government grades, according to Don-
old MacRae, manager of the Saskatchewan pool.
The pool methods of- marketing, in
the opinion of- Mr. M.VeRae, will'
eventually-involve the__ classification
of wheal, so si's to make it possible
to dispose of pool members' wheat on
a basis- of milling values only. Experiments, lie said, bare already been
made successfully in this direction.
The extent to "which this can be done
this year will be limited, as the agreement wiih the (.levator companies
gives the latter the right to the u.-e
of pool grain in their own terminals.
}Ir. MacRae predicted that in the
future the pools -will noi only control
the sale of the members grain, but
con'rol the handling of it at every
loading and unloading point. 'L'lti-
mately the pools would ovn their ova
system of elevators outright throughout, the prairie provinces.

Presentation to Mrs. Fraser
The Ladies Aid of the Presbyterian Church met at the Manse on
Tuesday afternoon. The meeting
was a special one called in houor
of the President Mra. J. A. Fraser.

pleasantly in games and friendly
conversation. Tea was served
about 5 o'clock, after which the
Minister on behalf of the ladies
presented Mrs. Fraser, with a
beautiful stainless . carving set.
Mrs. Fraser received the gift with
delight, but for once was at a loss
for suitable words. Grannie
Bryant came to the rescue however,
saving the situation and convulsing
the audience by her remark:
"Now Mrs. Fraser, you must not
split kindling with that knife."

""TMie historic past of the Nootka section of the West. Coast was recalled
i recently when ..Lieutenant- Governor Walter C. Nichol, of British Columbia,, unveiled and dedicated a monument commemorating the explorations of
those great English navigators, Captain Cook and Captain Vancouver.
The monument was built under the auspices of the Historic Sites and
Monuments Board of Canada which is placing similar memorials across the
Dominion on sites hallowed by'interesting chapters of Canadian history.
A large party travelled on the Canadian Pacific S.S. Princess Maquinna
for the ceremony arid left the steamer at the cannery wharf, boarding
launches for the short run to Friendly Cove. The party included Lieut.-
Governor Nichol, H. J. S. Muskett, his secretary, Judge Howay and Mr.

ethnologists of the Pacific, and has been spending the'summer on the coast
investigating the Indians and their customs.-
The new monument is seven feet broad by eleven feet high, with a.
standard size bronze tablet bearing,the'following inscription:
"Nootka Sound, discovered by Capt. Cook, in March, 1778. In June,
17S9, Spain took possession and established and maintained; a""settiement
