As an al'iermalh  to the recent big land show at New  Vork,where this province won first  prize in the competition for the best  potatoes grown in America, the  C.P.R. sent agents to the districts  where the prize potatoes were  grown and bought up all of the  championship variety of "Murphys"  that could be secured. The C. P. R.  now make a specialty of- this potato  on their cars. Other railways are  able to serve big potatoes, but they  are unable to secure the British  Colombia' prize brand, tbe C.P.R.  having a monopoly in that line.  Already iuserts for the regular menu  cards have been printed in which  the championship baked potato oc-  pies the place of honor on the  "ready to.serve " list.  :'���Krnesr, Miiler, M.P.P. fbt Grand  I^ks7^ijstri|t 'came up from the  Forks ony'Thursday's ti.un. lie  returned"on'Fridu).   l  Others  svn r u k iow uis  Grinnv s/7 791  B  C   Copper Co       9 6S1    ss7 I -<9  B C  Copper Treatment  Ihe   B  C     Col urn hi i    compinv s  smeller   tre ited   9 6->l   tons of ore1  this wi.ck   as follows   Mother Lade,  7 4"S,   Rawhide ,  Wellington  124,   \thclst m   7i   others   0(4  C.

Thero she set  op ber easel and. embracing In ber  subject ti bit of the rocks and a bit ot  ��� tb* ocean, began her work. " '���  Constance painted all (he morning,  but unfortunately her ability *"to transfer to canvas what sbe saw was not of-  a high order.

Sbe  thanked him for his suggestion and,  removing her canvas, folded her easel  and 'nor stool, put ber palette and  paint in her bos nnd was starting  away when tbe stranger said:  "Have you to carry those things  far?"

Fish Avoid Turbines.  The belief that factories may be very  destructive to fish through their turbines seems to be modified by recent  experience Nearly a scoie of years ago  Sir Thomas Brady expressed the  opinion tbat few fry survive an encounter with a turbine, and his experiments tended to prove tbat most of  those passing through are killed. A  Scotch investigator now finds that  young aid old fish may at least easily  avoid fie turbine* Not less than twenty experiments with trout and salmon  hare been reported by Professor Mcintosh of tho marine laboratory at St  Andrews, nn>l one of the striking results was tbe ease with which trout  swam about the turbine pits without being drawn into the vortex caused by the  action of the turbines. They seemed  quite capable of avoiding being Injured  except in case of somo special accident  Under good conditions they could swim  out of tho turbine pits and pass up  stream to seek some safo way of getting by the turbines.
