W.1 Fitch, lfcst Monday  afternoon definite steps were  taken towards the holding of a  union Christmas tree in Morley  hall on' Christmas night. The  general committee is composed of  Mrs. , Fitch, representing _ the  Methodist church; Mrs. MacEachern, the Presbyterian church, and  Mrs. Steuart.'the Catholic church.  Mrs. Patrequin, Mrs. Boulton' and  Miss Nicholson comprises "the  entertainment' **' committee, and  the decoration-committee is made  up of the following: Miss Duffy  Miss McLellah, Miss Stinson, Mrs.  Hanna and the Misses Ferris." It  is the intention of the. committee  to have a present oh the tree tbi  eyery child in 'town;,- and' it will  be.no fault of theirs- if anyone is  overlooked. A subscription:'will  be taken up in town for 'tlie .pur"*"  pose of buying these presents and  no doubt everyone.will contribute  liberally for so worthy-a cause.  F.

On Tuesday eyening, December  10th, there will be a supper and  entertainment in the church; for,  the purpose of raising funds,  which will be expended on furnishings for the new building.  The committee have made a  change from their * former, plans  ahd will serve supper early in the  evening, instead.'of' after the entertainment, as was arranged  when the tickets were printed.  A good, substantial supper will  be served from five o'clock until  seven, so that all will be afforded  the opportunity of, taking their  evening meal there.

About 40 of the 60 men employed by the Porto Rico Lumbar  company taking out logs on the  Lamb creek limits quit work  Monday when a cut was made in  their pay from $3.00 to $2.50 per  day.

THE LEADER. MOYIK BHITISH COLUMBIA.  I AIKENSIDE"  ;  I  ��� ��� ���  BY MARY J. HOLHES  Author of "Dora Deane," "The English Orphans/'  "Lena Rivers," "The Rector of St. Mark's,"  "Tempest and Sunshine," Etc  (Contiuued)  CHAPTER XI.  Saturday came at last, a balmy September day, when all nature seemed  conspiring to welcome the travelers  for whom so extensive preparations  were making at Aikenside. They were  expected at about six in the afternoon, and just before that hour tha  doctor rode up to be in readiness to  meet them. In the dining room the  table was set ns Maddy had never  - Been it set bafoie, making, with its  silver, its china, and cutglass, a glittering display. There was Guy's seat  as   carver,   with   Agnes   at   the   urn,  while Maddy felt sure that the two  plates between Agnes and Guy were  intended for Jessie and herself, the  doctor occupying the other side. Jessie  would sit next her mother, -which  would leave her near to Guy, whero  he could see every movement she  made. Would he think her awkward,  or would he, as she hoped, be so  much absorbed with the doctor as not  to notice her? Suppose she should  "drop her fork, or upset one of those  V queer-looking goblets, more like bowls 1  than anything else? It would be terrible, and Maddy's cheeks tingled at  ���the very thought of such a catastro-  / 'phe. Were they, goblets really those  ���funny colored things, and if they were  not, what were they? Summoning all  her courage, she asked the doctor, her  prime counselor, and learned that they  were the finger-glasses, of which she  had read, but which she had never  seen before.  "Oh, must I use them?" she asked,  in so evident distress that the doctor  ,. could not forbear a laugh as he told  her it was not of the slightest consequence whether she used them or not,  advising her to watch Mrs. Agnes,  who was aufait .in all such matters.  Six o'clock came, but no travelers.  Then an hour went by, and there  came a telegram that the cars had  broken down and would not probably  arrive until late in the night, if indeed they did till morning. Greatly  disappointed, the doctor, after dinner, took his leave, telling the girla  they had better not sit up. Consequently, at a late hour they both retired, sleeping so soundly as not to  hear the noise outside the house; this  banging of doors, the setting down of  trunks, the tramp of feet, Mrs. Noah's  words of welcome,- one pleasant voice  which responded, and another moro  impatient one which sounded as if its  ���owner were tired and cross.  Agnes   and   Guy   had   come.   As   a   .'whole, Agnes' season at Saratoga had  been rather disagreeable. Guy, it is  *-* true, had been exceedingly kind. She  had been flattered by brainless fops.  ���She had heard herself called "that-  beautiful Mrs. Remington," and "that  charming young widow," but no serious attentions had been paid,' no  .millionaire had asked to be her second husband. If there had, she would  have said yes, for Agnes was not  averse to changing her state of widowhood. She liked the doctor, but if he  did not propose,' and ^some other body  did, she should accept ���; that other  ���body, of course. This' was her intension when she left Aikenside, and  ���when she'came back, it was with the  'determination to - raise the siege at  once, and compel the doctor to surrender. She knew he was not wealthy  as she could wish, but his family were  the Hoi brooks, and as.'', she positively  liked him, she was prepared to waive  the matter:of money: In this state;of  mind it is not surprising that the  morning of the return home she  should listen with .a troubled mind to  Jessie's rather exaggerated account of  * the number of times the doctor had  been there, and the nice; things he  had said to.her and Maddy.  "He had visited them ever so much,  staying ever so long. I know Maddy  likes him; I do, anyway," Jessie said,  never dreaming of the passion she  ~���was��� excitingr^jealousy==of=Maddyv=  hatred of Maddy, and a desire to be  revenged on a girl whom Dr. Holbrook visited "ever so much."  What was she''that he should care  for her? A mere' nothing���a child,  :whom Guy had taken up. Pity there  was a Lucy Atherstone in the way of  his making her mistress of Aikenside.  It would-be a pretty romance, Guy  Remington and Grandpa Markham's  grandchild. Agnes was nervous antl  tired, and this helped to increase her  anger toward the ; innocent 'girl. She  would take /immediate measures, she  thought, to put the upstart down, and  tlie sight of Flora laying the cloth  for breakfast suggested to her the first  step in teaching Maddy her place.  "Flora," she snid, "I notice you are  arranging the table for four. Have we  cqmpany?"  ���"Why, no, ma'am; there's Mr. Guy,  yourself. Miss Jessie, and Miss  ' Clyde," was Flora's reply, while Ag-  nas continued haughtily: "Remove  Miss Clyde's plate. No one allows  their governess to ent with them."  "But, ma'am," and Flora hesitated,  "Bhe'B very pretty, and ladylike, and  young; she has always eaten with  Miss Jessie and Dr. Holbrook when  he'was here. He treats her as if she  was good as anybody."  'In her eagerness to serve Maddy  and save her from insult,YFlora was  growing bold, but she only hurt the  cause by mentioning the doctor. Ag-  inen was determined now; and she re-  ��� jplied: ,  * "It was quite right when we were  gona, but it is different now, and Mr.  : 'Remington, I am sure, will not suffer  -,��� it-"' ������������:,���  Y "Might I ask him?" Flora persist-  .ed, her hand still on the plate.  '. "No," Agnes would attend to that,  and also see Miss Clyde. All Flora  *��� had to do was to remove the plate  which she, finally did, ��� muttering to  herself: "Such airs! but, I know Mr.  Guy won't stand it."  Meantime Maddy had put on her  prettiest delaine, tied her little dainty  black silk apron, Mrs: Noah's gift, and  .with the feeling that she was looking  unusually well, started for the parlor  to meet her employer, Mrs. Agnes.  'Jessie had gone in quest of her brother, and thus Agnes was alone when  Maddy Clyde first presented herself  _ before her. She had not expected to  .find Maddy so pretty, and for a moment the . hot blood crimsoned her  cheek, while her heart throbbed wildly beneath the rich morning dress.  Dr. Holbrook had cause for be-ing at-  "���   , tfacted by that.fre3h, bti.?tlt_fae��.-she  xrronpnx, ��� urirr ���-co sne menea Tlfirsell  against-the better impulses of her nature, impulses which pleaded that for  the sake of the oast she should be  kind to Maddy Clyde.*  /'Ah, good-morning. You are, Jessie's  governess, I presume," she said, bowing distantly, nnd pretending not to  notice the hand which Maddy involuntarily extended toward her. "Jessie  speaks well of you, and I am very  glad you suit her. You have had a  pleasant time, I trust?"  Her voice was so cold and her manner so distant that Maddy's eyes for  an instant filled with tears, but she  answered civilly that she had been  very happy, and everybody was very  kind. It whs harder work to put down  Maddy Clyde than Agnes had.expected, and after a little further conversation there ensued a silence, which  neither was inclined to break. At last,  summoning all her courage, Agnes began: Y  "Excuse me, Miss Clyde, but^ youi  own good sense, of which I am Bura  you have an abundance, must tell you  that now Mr. Remington and myself  are at home, your intercourse with out  family must be rather limited���that is  ���ahem���that is, neither Mr; Remington nor myself are accustomed to hav'  ing our governess very much with us.  T suppose you have had the range of  the parlors, sitting there when you  liked, and all this was perfectly proper. Mind, I am finding no fault with  you. It is all quite right," she continued, as she saw the strange look  of terror and surprise visible on Maddy's face. "The past is fight, but in  future it will be a little different. I  am willing to accord to a governess  all the privileges possible. They are  human as well as myself, but society  makes a difference. Don't you know.it  does?"  "Yes���no���I don't know. Oh, pray  tell me what I am to do!" Maddy  gasped, her face as white as ashe3,  and her eyes wearing as * yet only a  scared,- uncertain look.  With little, graceful tosses of the  head, which set in motion every one  of the brown curls, Mrs. Agnes replied :  "You are not, of course, to go to  Mr. Remington. It is my matter, and  does not concern him. What I wish is  this: You are to come to the parlor  only when invited, and are not to intrude upon us at any time, particularly when company is here, such as���  well, such as Dr. Holbrook, if you  please. Aa you cannot be with .Jessie  all the while, you will, when your  labors as governess are over, sit in  your own room, or the schoolroom,  or walk in thr back yard, just as the  higher servants do���such as. Mrs.  Noah and the sewing girl, Sarah. Occasionally we shall have you in to  dine with us, but usually you will  take your meals with Mrs. Noah and  Sarah. By following these directions  you will, I think, give entire satisfaction." *. -  When Mrs. Agnes had finished this,  Maddy began to understand her position, and into her white face the hot;  blood poured indignantly. Wholly inexperienced,: she .had never dreamed  that a governess was not worthy to  sit at the. same '-.table with her employer,- that she must never enter the  parlors unbidden, or intrude herself"  in* any way.Y No wondercthat her  cheeks burned at the degradation, or  that, for an'instant, she felt like defying the proud womanto her face. But.  the angry words' trembling onYher  tongue' were ������ repressed as she remembered her grandfather's teachings,  and with a bow as haughty''. as' any  Mrs.: Agnes could have made, and a  look on her face which could not  easily be forgotten, she left the room,  and in a kind of stunned" bewilderment -sought- the garden, where she  could, unseen, give way to her feelings. ,.-���'��� Y ;: - .  Once "alone, the torrent burst forth,  and burying her face in the soft grass,  she^wept^bitterly^never-^hearing-the-5  step coming near, and' not at first  heeding -���'the������'voice which asked what  was the matter. Guy Remington, too,;  had coirie out into the garden, acci-  dently wandering that way, and so  stumbling upon the little figure crying in the grass. He knew it was Maddy, and. greatly surprised to find her  thus, asked what was the matter.  Then, as she did riot hear him, he  laid his'.hand gently upon her shoulder, compelling her.; to look up. In all  her imaginings of Guy, she-had nevor,  associated him with the man who  had so puzzled,and confused her, and  now she did not for a time suspect  the truth. She only thought him ;i  guest at Aikenside; someone conii;  with Guy, and her degradation seemed greater than bafore. She was not  surprised when he called her by  name; of course )���? remembered her.  just as she did'him; but she did woii  der a little what Mrs. Agnes would  say, could she know how kindly hi?  spoke to her, lifting her from tin;,  grass and leading hor to a rustic se.it  at no great distnnce from them.  "Now, tell me why you are crying  so?" he said, brushing from her sill-  apron the spot of dirt which had settled upon it. "Are you homesick?" he  continued, and Maddy * burst out  again.    .  She forgot that he was a stranger  forgot everything except that he sympathized .with her.  "Oh,'* sir, I was bo happy here tili  they came home, Mrs. Remington and  Mr. Guy. I never thought it was a  disgrace to be a governess 7 never  heard*it was,so considered, of that I  was not good enough to eat with  them, till,she told me this. Oh, dear,  dear!" and" choked with tears Maddy  stopped a moment to take breath^  She did not look up at the young  man beside her, and it was well she  did not, for the dark expression of his  face would have frightened her. Half  guessing the truth, and impatient to  hear more, he said to her:  "Go on," so sternly, that she started, and replied:'."'. \  "I know you are angry with me and  I ought not to have told you."  "I am not angry���not at you, at  least���go on," was Guy's reply, and  Maddy continued:  "She told me now they had come  home it would be different, that only  when invited must I come to the parlor, or anywhere, but must stay in  the servants'.part, and eat with Mrs.  Noah and Sarah. I'd just as soon do  that. I am no better than they, only,  only���the.waiL.she told jng^jnacLi me  <o��i-8orrnean;*as 11 1 was "not anyBody,  when I am," and here Maddy's pride  began to rise. "I'm just as good as  she, if grandpa is poor, and I won't  stay here to be treated like a niggeu  by her arid Mr. Guy. I liked him so,  much, too, because he was kind to  grandpa and to me when I was sick.  Yes, I did like him so."  "And how is it now?" Guy asked,  wondering who in the world she  thought he was. "How is it now?"  "I s'pose it's wicked to feel such  things on Sunday, but, somehow, what  she said keeps making me so bad thnt  I know I hate her, and 1 guess I hate  M<; Guy!"  This was Maddy's answer, spoken  deliberately, while she looked up at  the young man, who, with a comical  replied:  expression about his mouth  "I am Mr. Guy."  "You, you! Oh, I can't bear it! I  will die!" and Maddy sprang up as*  quickly as if feeling an,, electric  shock.  But Guy's arm was interposed to  stop hor, and Guy's arm held her  back, while he asked her where she  was going. .  "Anywhere out of sight where you  can never see me again," Maddy sobbed vehemently "It is bad enough to  havo you think me a fool, as you  must; but now, oh, what do you  think of me?"   ��� v  "Nothing bad, I assure you," Guy  said, still holding her wrist to keep  her there. "I supposed you knew who  I was, but ns you did not, I forgive  you for hating me so cordially. If you  thought I sanctioned what Mrs. Remington has snid to you, you had cause  to dislike me, but, Miss Clyde,. I do  not, and this is the first intimation I  have had that you were to be treated  other than as a lady. I am master of  Aikenside, not Mrs. Agn-es, who shall  be made to understand it."  "Oh, please don't quarrel about me.  Let me go home, and then all will be  well," Maddy cried, feeling, at that  moment, more averse to leaving Aikenside than she could have thought it  possible.  "We shall not quarrel; but I shall  have my way; meanwhile go to your  room and stay- there until told that I  have sent for you." ���'.'���������������  They went to the house together,  but separated in the hall; Maddy repairing to her room, while Guy sought  Mrs. Agnes. The moment she saw. his  face she knew .a storm was' coming,  but was not prepared * for the biting  sarcasm and bitter reproaches heaped upon her by one who, when roused, was aperfect hurricane.  .- Maybe she had forgotten what she  was when his father married her, he  said, but he had; not, and he remembered well the wonder expressed by  many that his father should stoop to  marry a poor school-teacher. "Yes,  that's what you were madam, much  as you'despise Maddy Clyde for being a governess; you were one once  yourself, and before that time mercy  knows what you were���a hired *��irl,  perhaps���your present airs would  seem to warrant as much!"  Guy was in a sad passion by this  time, and failed to note the effect his  last words had on Agnes, who turned  livid with rage and terror, but smothering her wrath, said beseechingly:  "Pray, Guy, do not be angry; I  know I am foolish about some things,  and proud people who 'come up,' as  you say, always are, I guess. I know  that marrying your father made me  what I am, 'but everybody does not  know it, and it is .not necessary they  should. I don't remember ��� exactly  what I did say to this Clyde girl, but  I thought it would be pleasanter fo'h-  you, pleasanter for us all, not to have  her always around; it seems she has  presided at the table when Dr. Holbrook was here to tea, and even you  can't think that quite right."  5 "I don't know why," and at mention of. Dr. Holbrook Guyfs, temper  burst out again. "Agnes, you can't deceive me; I know the secret of your  abominable treatment of Maddy is  jealousy.'"  "Guy���jealous, I jealous of that  child?" And Agnes' voice was expressive of the utmost consternation.  "Yes, jealous of that child;' you  think that because the doctor has  been kind to her, perhaps he wants  her some time for his wife. I hope he  doe^; I mean to help it on; I'll tell  him to have her, and if he don't I'll  almost marry her myself!" and Guy  paced up and. down the parlor, chafing  and foaming like a young lion.  Agnes was conquerecl -and quite as  much bewildered aa Maddy had been;  she heard only in part how Maddy  Clyde was henceforth to be treated.  "Yes, yes," she gasped at last, as  i*uy J,ajked on,_"stop_now_for_mercy!a_  sake, arid I'll do anything, oply not  this morning, my head aches so I cannot go to the breakfast table; I must  be excused," and holding her temples,  which were throbbing with pain induced by strong excitement, Agnes  hurried to her own room and threw  herself upon the bed, angry, mortified,  subdued-  (To be Continued.)

Bloodlessness is the  direct cause of many common diseases, such as indigestion, palpitation  of the heart, debility, decline, neuralgia, nervousness, lheumatism and  consumption. The surest signs of  poor blood are paleness, bluish lips,  cold hands and feet, general weakness,  low spirits and headaches and backaches. If anaemia is not checked in  time it will probably develop into  consumption. There is one certain  cure for anaemia���Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. These pills actually make new,  rich," red blood, which fills the veins  and brings new life, new energy, and  good health to bloodless people. In  proof of this Miss Mabel Clendenning.  Niagara Falls, Ont., says: "For two  -years I suffered,from anaemia.. I was  weak, thin, and had no appetite; I  sometimes hnd- distressing headaches  and felt low-spirited. My heart would  palpitate violently; I could do no  work around the house; I * became  very pale and my nerves got unstrung.  The efforts of two good doctors failed  to help me, I was in such a pitiful  state. One day a friend urged me to  try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I did  so. Soon I'saw the pills were helping me and by the t'me I had taken  nine boxes I was completely cured.  I had a good, appetite, " gained in  weight, I hadn't an ache or pairi,  could sleep well, and I am in better  health now than I ever was. I cannot speak too highly of what. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done for me."  What Dr. Williams; Pink Pills have  done for Miss Clendenning they have  done, for thousands���they will do for  you.

The situation is not new,  nor  is   anything   notably  new   being  said about it.   It extends to the United States and to the best equipped  roads there   as well as   to roads in  Canada,   lt was only a tew days ago  that   lines   between   New   York   and  Buffalo had to announce they could  make no more contracts for the carriage of grain over their  tracks  till  those they were engaged on had been  fulfilled.    In both countries there is,  however,  a disposition  to  take  hold  of minor incidents, to magnify them,  to  represent them as  indicating the  general  situation,   and   to   hold ��� the  railways, up to condemnation as being  inefficiently equipped and inefficiently managed by men who have no regard  either  for  thoso   who  stand  to  the-road in the relation of customers  or  for  the  general  interest    of    the  country.    To   answer   such    extreme  talk it should only be necessary to  point to the work the railways have  done and are doing, to the immense  traffic they carry at about the lowest  rates prevailing in the world and to  their constant expenditures, not alone  on new rolling stock, but on terminals,  warejiouses,  and all  that .is requisite  to the effective    and    cheap  transport  of passengers  and  freight.  In the case of the two leading Canadian railways, the Grand Trunk and  Canadian Pacific, there was. an addition to the rolling stock between July  1906, and July, 1907, of 8,880 freight  cars.    This  represented  an   increase  in  car equipment much  beyond  the  increase  in  mileage  of    the    roads.  Most of it was designated to meet the  requirements of the increasing traffic  that was expected. ', The records show  the  roads  are   carrying  more  traffic  than  they  ever  did' before,    though  their profit is not- proportionately increasing.    If in spite of this expenditure   and   this   increased   business,  there are at times, and places delays  in the supply of. cars, it is for the  well understood reason that it is not  commercially   practicable   to   keep   a  railway equipped with sufficient rolling stock to meet at once the maximum demand of the season of greatest  traffic,   particularly  when,    as   often  happens, the movement of.the freight  offered   is   largely   in   one   direction.  This  is  recognized  by  all  who  give  study  to the  question,  and  by railway  commissioners,  amongst  others,  when  tliey are * composed  of men of  practical knowledge and5 with a sense  of  responsibility  resting  upon^them.  Railways   may   not   be   expected    to  perform   either  physical   or  commercial  impossibilities.    In this  connection, also, it may be pointed out that  while railways on this continent are  being   condemned   for   not   providing  greater means for doing their work,  they are at the same time being hampered by legislation and legal orders,  sometimes to the extent of reducing  their credit.    No one  can  or should  condemn the law that requires railways to treat all who come to them  with business oa the same footing as  regards   rates,   promptness   and   efficiency of service, etc.   When, on the  plea of serving the public, however,  attempts' nre   made   to   reduce   their  rates  below  a  reasonable   remunerative standard, harm is done, not only to those who have invested money  in building railways, trusting in the  public   faith   to   be   able   to   operate  them under fair business conditions,  but  also  to  the   communities  which  the railways serve.

The practical working under present  conditions of the clauses of the Manitoba grain act regulating, the .distribution of cars was frankly discussed with a Free Press representative by William Whyte, second vice-,  president of .the C.P.R. Mr. Whyt**  claimed that abuses of the act were  . seriously hampering the railway in its  efforts to move the crop expeditiously, and were, in reality, defeating  the main purposes of ,the law.  "The great weakness of the Manitoba grain act," said Mr. Whyte, "is  that its framers had evidently beer,  so strongly seized with the idea of  protecting the grain growers against  the railway companies and the elevator operators, that they evidently  overlooked the rights of the latter to  be protected against the abuse of privileges by the grain growers. In any  event it is certain that no adequate  provision was made .which would give  the railway companies such protection, and as the years go by the original spirit of the act, which was intended to be simply a check on the  elevator operators,', is. being more, and  more abused by those it was designed to protect. From year to year the  , farmer has discovered new weak spots  in its provisions of which he may  take advantage with impunity to his  own individual advantage, no doubt,  but with equal certainty to. the disadvantage of the farming community  ��� as a whole. __  Delay to Equipment  "This season these abuses have  cu'minated in such a serious delay  to railway equipment that its evil  effects are apparent to all, so much so  that at one or two points the citizens  and farmers have combined in requesting the warehouse commissioner,  if possible, to suspend the grain act  temporarily to allow elevators to get  a larger percentage of the cars, so  that they may be enabled to get  tlieir grain out more prornptly.  "When it-is pointed out. that during the season of 1905 the Canadian  Pacific was able to get 82 per cent.;  . of the cars available at grain stations  loaded per day, for the season of 1906  this had dropped to 63 per cent., and  that this season, we will average under 50 per cent, of available :��� cars  loaded per day, the evilis apparent.  In other words, it is evident from the  above figures that it is taking, this  season, 160 cars to get the same result that 100 accomplished two years  ago. This: downward tendency can  be ascribed to no other'cause than  to the working of the act.  "Innumerable examples of the  gross abuse of the act, or more properly speaking, of the "working of the  act, for it" provides no restrictions  that will prevent these abuses, might  be given/two or three examples will  serve to illustrate, .however.  Flood of Bogus Orders  : "At one town in Saskatchewan,"  continued Mr. Whyte, '-'something  *over 800 applications had been made  for cars. It was known by all that a  large percentage of the. names were  fictitious, in fact, it was common  talk that the order book contained  the names of most of the school children in the district.- The agent, in  conformity with the grain act, was  compelled to wade through this sea  of names, getting a proportion of the  cars loaded, but in many cases placing the cars uselessly, only to cancel  the order after the car had been held  the required length of time. Every  such case, needless to say, costs the  railway' company money. The situa-  , tion finally became so acute that the  warehouse commissioner was asked  to investigate the matter by "one or  two bona fide applicants. He did so  and many of the nanies which.had  been used to 'pad-'- the order book  were cancelled. No prosecution followed, however, as the practice was  so widespread it would have involved  the whole community.' In fact, it  seemed to be the feeling that if the  case had to come before a jury at  that point there would not be found  enough men themselves innocent of  -   the practice to try the case..  -A Dishonest Practice -  - "At another point within the last  few days a car was allotted and.placed at, the loading platform, The applicant on being advised in the usual  ���way^that=tho=car-had=been=placed=fori  him, threw one sack of grain into the  car, thus complying with that clause  of the act which requires that applicant must declare his intention and  ability to load-his car and* must- commence to.load'within 24 hours. The  '* placing of the; sack of grain in the  car applicant claimed was 'commencing to load.' The car was not completed until six days later. The above  is a common practice and many instances "mild be cited.    , ���_..'"  "The grain producing area west of  Winnipeg is covered by" four superintendents' 'districts.. A check, made  within the* last few days of one of  these districts only, showed that on  ._ one day's - reports a total of twenty-  two cars had been delayed in loading  from two to six days. When it is considered that the same thing is happening daily on each of the other four  districts, the delay to a railway com-,  pany's rolling stock from this source  must be appreciated.  "Again when ��� the farmer has cut  his crop," continued. Mr. Whyte, "he  figures that lie. will j>robablyr start to  thresh at a certain dateTand he im  mediately goes to the. railway station  and-puts down h\s name for a,car  for this date. He may not thresh {or  weeks, in the mea^-^ however, he  will probably go t0 the rail 'sta.  tion, find that th* car ha8 been al_  lotted to hi�� and+after being hM fol.  the required length of time, hit, application cancelled.

CURIOUS CUSTOM. |  ���The  Tribute  of   Horseshoes���Penalty  - ;' -'ofYPeers.   .....  Every peer of the realm.who passe-  through Oakham, the chief town In  Rutland, the "horseshoe county," has  ti pay toll to the lord of the manor  in the shape pf a horseshoe.- The latest addition to-the remarkable collection of horseshoes in Oakham Castle  has: just been fixed, and is inscribed.  "Bernard Lord Coleridge, 1907." At  the last assizes there his lordship, in  his charge to the grand jury, humorously referred to the ancient custom,  and said having been "wavlaid by  highwaymen" he feared he would have  to pay the penalty. The late Lord  Coleridge, the judge's father, presented a shoe in 1879. The origin of the  custom will probably never be definitely determined. It is popularly  believed that it arose when Queen*  Elizabeth passed through on her way  to visit Lord Burleigh at "Burghley  House by Stamford town." Her horse-  cast a shoe in the street, and, accord-,  ing to tradition,' to mark the event  Her Majesty.straightway .decreed that  every royal personage or peer visiting the town should give a horseshoe  to the lord of the manor. Be that as  it may, the identical shoe from Queen  Elizabeth's horse remains in the castle. By "antiquarians it is, however,"  thought that the" levy was more probably first made by Walkelin.de Ferrers-, a Norman baron, who owned the  castle, and who, as likely as not, demanded a shoe by force from the  horse of any other nobleman who dared to jide through his territory. It is  urged in support of this theory that  from time immemorial the bailiffs  have had power .to,; take a shoe by  force from his horse's hoof in the  event of a noble refusing to-comply  with the custom.

The Demon Dyspepsia.��� In olden  times it was a popular belief that  demons, moved invisibly through the  ambient air, seeking to enter into men  and trouble them.

On the  contrary the purpose of- setting aside  the reserve is that it shall furnish a  permanent and perpetual supply of  timber and fuel for the people de-  depending on it,  In order that this object may be  effected, the timbered lands must be  put under proper management. The  central idea of this management is  that the quantity of timber which  shall be allowed to be taken off the  area in any period shall not be greater than the amount of timber which  is grown on the area during this period. This is the ideal of forest management. Needless to say, the carrying out of this idea meets with various modifications, especially when  scientific management is first introduced. '   �����  In order that this policy may be  carried out, it is necessary to know,  not only the actual amount of timber  on.;tbe reserve at present, but also  the rate at which the timber is growing and what amount of timber is being produced. When these have been  found out, the amount of timber  which may be removed from the tract  each year may be calculated. It is  to. ascertain the points referred to  tliat parties have been sent out each  summer since 1905 by the Forestry  Branch of the Department of the Interior, in whose charge the management of the reserves lies.  The number and diameter of the  trees on the tract are arrived at by  going over a certain proportion (previously determined) of the tract,  counting the "trees thereon and measuring "the diameters accurately with  "tree calipers", record of all which  is made at the time and kept. The  relation between the diameter and  height of the trees are also studied,  for instance, how high a tree four  inches in diameter will be. Represen-  sentative trees of each diameter  are also felled and "stem analyses"  made. From measurements taken  in these "stem analyses" it may be  determined, not only .what ^are the  actual cubic contents of the tree at  present, but also what were the contents of the tree ten, twenty, or any  number of years ago; and from what  it has done in the past, the future  growth of the tree may be arrived at.  By subsequent calculations in the  office it may be determined what is  the actual amount of timber (in  cords, board feet or other measurement) standing on the tract, what is  the rate of growth and what quantity of timber will grow on the tract  in a given period.  Another object for which forest reserves are often set apart is that of  regulating water supply. It is well  known .that in regions which have  been stripped of their timber the  streams in spring become torrents,  while during the summer the iimount  of water flowing in them is much less  than it was during tlie periods before  the timber was removed. The value  of a supply of water, either for manufacturing purposes or for agriculture, depends on the constant flow of  the water. Obviously the easiest way  of keeping the flow of water constant  is to retain the forests, cutting only  the mature timber, which ought to be  removed anyway. In several of the  Dominion Forest Reserves, this question of water supply must play an  important part in the management.  Besides these principal objects aim-  ecj at���namely, the preserving of a  permanent timber and fuel supply,  and���the -conservation-- of���Ihe- water  supply, there are various other ends  to be aimed at. In some cases, for  instance, while these objects are the  primary ones, inhabitants of the foi>  est region make considerable * money  from the summer visitors who. come  there. But the former considerations  are usually head and shoulders above  any others that may be offered, and  must always be of prime importance  in the management of the forests.
