No Use for Chinese Labor.'  (Fioni the CianVrook Ileiald.) '  British Columbia has no use for  Chinese labor. They arc barred from  the province now and they*, will stay  barred. - NJo white man, can, compete with tlie Crincse for they 'will  not live like a white man- And it  is on that point where every man'in  business is interested. It is what  iho laboring man buys that gives  business to any community, whether  it be ' Cranbrook',' Vancouver, Toronto, Chicago or New York. ' Take  away the purchasing power of the  laboring man and you rob' your.own  country of its most potent factor of  .success. With a prosperous, fairly-  paid laboring element you will sec a  prosperous, -piofit-carriing community. Reduce the wage of the laboring man to the level'of Chinese' competition and -what have you? It is  true ,tliat here and there some employers may grow rich, but that does  not bring to any community general  prosperity. ��� There may be at tl-is  time a dearth of labor. / In fact progress along''1 certain lines may .be  retarded on-'this account.,' But it is  far better to put up with that than  it .would 'be to' open, the, gates" to a  horde "of Chinese., to,fill ,the,present  'demand and later" drive > every- white  man to the wall in the life and death  struggle for 'existence. The -white  laborer is 'a consumer, .because " he  lives>in-:e a white "man. " And ib is  the ' consumer .that gives prosperity  to any " country.* 'Cut.oR the consumer 'a'nd. you reach the' vitals of  commerce."

She kissed Marthe even more  tenderly than usual, almost as if she  already claimed her as a daughter.  The girl instinctively shrank back, her  timidity suddenly le-awakened.  'Marthe returned home by a rough,  rocky path that ascended straight to  the summit of the  hillock. The pine  trees,    shrubbery    and    mossy'  rocks  where the butterflies fluttered gaily in  the sunshine, soon gave place to the  deep forest with its magnificent trees,  whose intertwined branches formed a  thick shade. The path now became narrower and the, young chatelaine soon  found herself standing on the highest  point  of  her   domain.  A   large   stone  cross had been erected on the spot and  tho trees had been,cut down to give a  sudden  view,  not only of  the Ocean,  hut of the entire surrounding country.  And on  this exquisite day, tho panorama seemed like a fairy scene.  Marthe seated herself on one of the  steps at the foot of the cross, threw,  her hat back, and took,a long breath  of .the fragrant air.

It Is notiwhat Canada now is or what  Canada has done, but what Canada may  yet do and may yet become that give  distinction and alertness to Canadian  life to-day. The interest ii that of the  unclouded morning of a new day; the  enthusiasm is that of an eager and  healthy youth; the rejoicing Is that of  a strong man to run a'race. -As yet  Canada has tov, Its credit, for, the most  part, only a fair start, a great opportunity, and a worthy ambition. After  four decades of reconstruction and readjustment and steady progress the  people of this half-continent of .the  Canadian Dominion feel, as never In  the past, the thrill and beat of a new  national life. It fj, the virile and  abounding life of the larger Canada.  The elements, In our national life, the  factors 'that make for material wealth,  or for social betterment, or, for moral  culture must all be'drawn upon, each to  contribute its quota for the nation' that  Is to be. The railways and the steamship lines, the great manufacturing industries and the institutions of com-  tmerce and trade, the farmer and tho  miner and the lumberman, the Inventor  and the artisan, the teacher and the  philosopher, the poet and the artist, tha  scientist and the preacher and the  statesman, all who in any way add to  the wealth or Increase the worth of  Canadian citizenship���to them the call  comes  from the laiger  Canada.  Life in a half-continent peopled from  the ends of the earth cannot tout be  complex. In its complexity is the charm  and the hope of Canadian life. Not a  replica of any of the old-world nations, but a composite out of which a  new type of national character may  emerge, the Canadian type is the opportunity and the ambition of this latest born among the  nations.  And If that Canadian typ<_- 1^ to survive It must stand for something more  than  mere  bigness,   says   The  Toronto  Globe.   The larger Canada must have a  soul as well as a body or Its decay will  be certain and swift.    A nation Is great  not  because  its   territory   Is   wide  and  Its   natural   resources   abundant.

They  should be fed very little if any.corn,  although some breeders use 'corn as a  part of the ration with success.   Generally   speaking,    however,   the   less  corn fed the better, oats and bran being preferable at this time, especially  if the ewes  are    in    good    condition.  After the lambs are dropped the grain  ration  should  be increased and some  roots should be fed if > avaKable,    so  that the eves(may produce   a   maximum flow of milk at a minimum'loss  of flesh. ' ''  Late Hatched Chickens.  As a rule, chickens which are hatched out in April or early in May are tha  best ones with v/hiclrlo stock the laying pens the next season. In the casa  of the Asiatics it may be well to hatch  the chickens during the latter part of  March, but with"7 the small breeds,  which lay much sooner. April is plenty  early enough. Chickens which aro  hatched out' In February are very like-  'v to molt the same season and so Impair their usefulness as early layers.   Suburban Life.  i Plenmmt  Thotuclita.

Toogood  was    In  charge  of    a.   boat    load   of    soldiers  among whom was a Canadian member  of the Nile Voyageurs.     The Nile current was swift.  The boat struck a rock  and everyone was in  the water.'   Only  tho  Canadian  could' swim.   It  was 300  yards to shore. The Canadian took command and  carried' everyone of the ten  men In the boat to land, one at a time.  Some Arabs appeared   and began   to  pepper  the  rescued  ones  with  arrows  and spears.    Again  the  Canadian  was  In demand.   He had the only revolver In  the party, and he drove off the Arabs.

Fruit As an  Aid  to   Digestion.  Dr  J. G. Sharp |n The London Lan-  :et calls attention to  the very considerable digestive action of the juices of  suoh  common   fruit   as   apples,  pears  cherries,   strawberries,   etc.     He  states'  that  tho  fruit acids  combine with tha  iron. In   proteld   foods- and   enable   the  Wood   to   take   it  up;   hence   meat  and  fruit are  the proper die1: for anaemia,  I'he ferments contained in many common   fruits,   as   well   as   in   tho   pine-  xpple, give them considerable digestive'  power of a nature similar to'that possessed by the pancreatic Juice.  To obtain  tho  best- therapei/ile results from  fruit Dr. Sharp  recommends that It bo  eaton at the ;end of the chief meal.   All  tinned fruits'are lacking In this digestive power, since the high temperature?  preceding   the  canning  klll��   th*   far-  menta.  bags, and fears lest some of them had  been left.behind. *Ferglt it!" rang out  the bass beauty's voice over all the din.

LAWYERS MAKE FACES.  London    Lecturer   Severely   Condemns  Specialists,   Especially   Medical.  Many society women, dressed in the  very height of fashion, are studying  the philosophy of Plato at Clarldge's  Hotel, London, where Dr. Emlle Reich  delivered his second lecture recently.  The lecture was entitled "The Particular and the General: the Individual  and the Society," and many and varied  were the subjects dealt with. One of  its most interesting features was the  "belief expressed by Dr. Roich that professions make faces.  "I And it very difficult to say whether the lawyer's face is growing more  like that of a wolf or a fox, but it Is  certainly getting more animal-like," was  one of the lecturer's statements.  "The general physiognomy of a Roman Catholic priest is different from  'the general physiognomy of a Protestant priest, and, if the two were dressed  the same, you would be able easily to  distinguish them," he continued, adding that a similar difference might be  seen in the faces of Oxford and Cam  bridge graduates.  The man who endeavors to be a "spe  olallst" In anything came In for severo  criticism  from Dr. Roich  "The specialist knows nothing, because he does not generalize," ho said,  and then, referring to tho medical specialist who particularizes on tho eye,  the ear, hair or teoth, ho added, "You  will soon be going to a specialist for  tho right ear, and a specialist for tho  left ear. And you will lose your hearing."   1  ,/, Social Dlotlonnry.

In  AVronar Terminal-!.  A large number of the world's greatest Inventions have been the result of  some accidental .union of forces the  nature of which the person who started them ueidier understood nor suspected. The working of dynamos at  long distances apart when properly  connected was discovered by accident.  A scientific journal says: "Soon alter  the opening of the Vienna exposition  in 1ST3 a careless workman picked up  , the ends of a couple of wires which he  found trailing along the ground. He  fastened them in the terminals of a  dynamo, to which he thought they belonged, while they were really attached to another dynamo that was running in another part of the grounds.  The dynamo to which he fastened the  wires was not running, but us soon as  the wires were placed in its terminals  It revolved as if a steam engine was  driving it. The workman was amazed.  The engineers and electricians were  astonished by, the discovery that a dynamo electric machine (turned by  steam power) would turn auother similar machine a long distance away if  properly. connected to it by electric  wires. Thus originated one of the  most revolutionary applications of electricity."

"Young married people," says a Chinese proverb, "should have their house  built round so d!-,coutent cau find no  .oruer Ln it"  Help your children to grow strong  and robust by -counteracting.anything  that causes ill-health. One great  cause of disease in children is worms.  Remove them with Mother Graves"  Worm Exterminator.     It   never  fails.  His   Economy   la   Not   Miserly  and   His   ,  Courtesy Delightful.  The "habitant" has  to be frugal, for  'hla   means  of  supporting  his   family���  usually no small family���are somewhat  meagre,   -  Nor    la,   frugality    unknown-  amongst   those   who,, are   ln what   arc  called easy circumstances; no bad.thlmr.   '  either,  seeing   that   this   virtue   is   the  opposite of the vices, wastefulness and  extravagance. "',But  though  frugal,   the  French-Canadian    Is   not    miserly;     he f  may be Impecunious, but he is not parsimonious.'   ' Fortunately,   too,   his   dp1  mestlc wants, though many, are simple  and easily sat-.sfled.    'it Is said that a *  ScotchTiin' could  live  where   an  Englishman   would   starve;   but   a  French-  Canadian   could   live   where   a   Scotch-    ',  man  would   find   it' difficult   to   supply  himself with the simple but nourishing  water  brose.      In   this, respect   he   reminds us of those'two delightful characters, Drr Rlccabocca and  his servant  Glaouma,   depicted *wlth  such  consummate skill by the Inimitable Lytton.  In the keen competition and maddening, hurry   and  'heartless   strife   of   the  r  present day,  the peaceful and 'content-    t  ed French-Canadian of this generation,  especially  if h��  belong Tto ,the  humbier  classes,   may   not' be'  well   adapted   to '   '  play  a  leading  part.      His  natural   inclination  not  to be  grasping,  his quiet '  life,  his   domestic  disposition,   his  conservative' tendency,  all  predispose  him  against  wildly   struggling  in   that   mad  rush for worldly, self   which  is  so  distinctive  of  this 'plutocratic  age.    Long-  ago-he learned    the   salutary   lesson���  Indeed, he seems never to have learned   .  It. but always'to have known  It Intuitively���"Having   food   and   raiment,   let  us  be   therewith   content."     Is  he   any  worse for it?    Is he not all the better?  Is���lt really a hindrance to his true'and   (.  permanent  success  ln  life?      And   Is'It  altogether  to  us,   restless  and  dissatisfied  Anglo-Saxons  as   we, are, t to  have ,  as our neighbors a race of people, who,    '  by  .their, comparative   indifference    to  Mammon,  are  constantly romindlng^ua  that this life, with its -many false ambitions,  evanescent  honors and ephemeral   glories,   Is   not  everything?      Yes,  the   "habitant"   is   frugal,   and   his   domestic   economy   is   one   of     charming  simplicity;  but In spite of this���or is if  not  because  cf   this?���one  would   have  to^  travel   a   long   way   before    coming  across a people among whom domestic  happiness   prevailed  more  generally.  Sut It  is  his  courtesy  whlch^ strikes  the tourist more than his frugality, for  It   Is  more   easily  seen.     One, must   be  somewhat   acquainted   with   hl's  household   arrangement?,    with     his - actual  home life,  to appreciate the latter;   ono .  has only to meet'him in ordinary intercourse   to   notice   the   former.     He   evidently , belongs   to   the   same    race    as  those   old   French   guards,   who,   when  they had come  face to face with  their  British   opponents   ln   deadly   warfare,  politely    removed   their   helmets,    and,  bowing to their saddlebows, begged the  gantlemen of the English guards to do  them  the  honor to  fire  the  first round,  and   to   do   the   English   justice,    thoy  refused     to    take    advantage    of    the  Frenchmen's excessive politeness;    and  so commenced firing at the same time.  -Whether you are visiting in  the mansions of the seignleurs, the descendants  of  the  old noblesse  of the  old  regime,  or In the comfortable dwellings'of the  skilled    artlzans;     whether     you     find  yourself In one of the great centres of  trade and commerce,  where "men  most  do congregate," or amongst  the picturesque  cottages   of   the   humble   "habitants." "far from the maddening crowd's  ignoble   strife,"   the  universal  courtesy  of  the  people  Is what  first strikes  the  visitor from any of the sister provinces.  But  It   should,   perhaps,  be"  called   politeness   rather   than   courtesy,   and    it  has   not   of   necessity   anything    to    do  with   what    Is    kn,wn    as    etiquette���  though,  of course,  from  no people 'does  this  last   receive   more   punctilious   attention  than from  the French or those  who   are   of   French   extraction.       The  courtesy which has been spoken of proceeds   not   so   muoh   from   any   anxiety  to  avoid   making  a   faux  pas   In   social  Intercourse as   from   the wish  to please  others���or,   as    wo   say,   to   make   them  feel at home���even, at the cost of som.>  sacrifice   of   one's   own   convenience   or  comfort.    This  makes your  Intercourse  with    the    French-Canadian,    however  transient   it   may   be   or   of   how   little  Importance,   a   pleasant   remembrance;  and  so  obliging  do  you   find   him,   and  withal   so  unobtrusive,   that   when   you  are forced; to bid him.good-bye you regret  that  It  Is   not merely  au  revlor���  Byron Nicholson, in The French-Cana-  dlani  !0l  ' <-;,��?> I  '-, i- o |  i '.  i       M  I  ���r     ��� '��i/  -3*  Diet  nnil  Slckneno.  It is a broad rule that'boiled milk  and puddings made with milk agree  more frequently than anything to restore a sick, person. When beginning  to restore a sick persou to more ordinary diet begin with white fish, boiled.  Plaice or sole boiled in milk is excellent. Never give potatoes when the digestion Is bad. In place of bread give  toast. Often there 'is' a craving for  acids. In such cases give lemon Juice  diluted with water and! sweetened with  sugar when allowable or with saccharin in diabetes. A craving for green  stuffs should always be satisfied. Nature herself Is crying out. Give water  cress, but withhold radishes, as they  are difficult to digest.      ...   ._-  Cookln-r tie Milk.  The main thing is to cool the milk  quickly to a temperature,- of 50' degrees or less, and it would pay the  dairyman to provide ice for this purpose. In driving through the country  in the early morning you will observe  near the well at different farms a can  of milk placed in a half barrel, where  there is not room for more than a couple of pails of rwater, which would not  be sufficient to properly cool the milk,  and unless this is quickly done the  germs that may have got into It will  have a chance to develop before It gets  cooled to that point where their growth  I" retanded--r-J.
