Chai Ies  F.   Lindmark,  mannger of  the   Revelstoke    Lumber   Company,  'Limited, returned on   Monday morning from  a business tiip east, the return  journey   being made by way of  Portland   and  the Pacific const cities.  Dining   his   trip Mr. Lindmark made  arrangements for the   re-buildiug at  once of the Big Eddy Sawoiill close by  the foi mer site of the mill which was  burned down during the early pait of  the summer.     The new mill will be  built in  the. latest style of mill architecture and the most improved machinery will be installed.     The   capacity of the new mill will be 65,000 feet  per day.     The"work   of  con_ti action  will  be   completed   this   winter  aud  everything be put    in    readiness   to  make a start byApril 1st next year.  This wiH be good news to the people  of Revelstoke, who will now moie  than "ever appreciate the re-establishment of the mills aciO-S the Columbia  river and from which there will be a  payroll of between $8,000 and $10,000  per month .when in full operation, for  distribution for supplies, etc., in this  city. " To one man m particular is due  the credit for the building up of this  practically new and .important industry in the city, and that is the manager of'the- Revelstoke Lumber Co..  Mr. C. F. Lindmark. With unbounded  faith Jn the lumbering business, with  that energy .characteristic of the man,  MrrLindmark set himself to woik to  buildup' from- the. ruin's a first class  industry, second to none in. the' province, and such it will be. -'Before the"  year is nearly spent since the former  plant "was^burned loathe ground, a  new one of greater,capacity.and bjjtle'rj  facilities will be in-full operation. -.-- "  "jjTheJ.Reve.lstoke^Lumber Company^  are backed up by vlarge timber holdings, possibly the most valuable iri the  Columbia valley. *The company ac-  quiied these holdings'" some yeais ago  befoie the rush for timber stat ted,  and wete thus enabled to get the  choice betths,*; with liver'iiontage.  The timber is all within easy distance  of their mills and of transportation.  Dandy Dick.  Arrangements for the pioduction of  "Dandy Dick," a tliree act farce, by  the Amateur Dramatic Club on Monday evening, October 23id, nre well  advanced, and the entertainment  promises to be an exceptionally good  one. The play centers around the  Very Rev. Augustin Jedd, Dean of St.  Marvell's, (W. M. Lawience) who  makes a very munificent offer  to contribute ������300 towaids the  restoration of the church spire,  provided that seven others come for-  waid each with a like amount. Quite  unexpectedly and unfortunately for  the poor Dean, his offer is  accepted" and' tlie Dean is at his  wit's end to know how to raise the  money. About this time the Dean is  favored with a visit from his widowed  sister, Mrs. Georgiana Tidman, better  known in racing circles as "George  Tidd." (Mis. T. H. Dunne). At the  same- time Sir Tiibtrara Mardon (D.  M. Rae) arrives at St. Marvell's with  "Dandy Dick"J to take part in the St.  Marvell's Race Meeting. The Swan  Inn, whera/.'Dandy Di k" is stabled, is  burned down^.the hor_e howover is  rescued and is bi ought by Mrs. Tidman, (who. unknown to her brother,  owns one-half.6f "Dandy Dick,") into  the Deanery. Stables. Mis. Tidman  learning of-Kor brother's dilemma le-  garding the spire pioposes that he bet  ������30 on ."Dandy Dick" at the coming  races. ������������������ The .Dean is indignant at the  proposition,,*? but Blore, (T. BT. Dunne)  butler,at the'Deanery, appears on the  scene with the .required ������50 which he  had picked up- on his master's table.  In a moment^ of "despair and weakness  the Dean yields^to the temptation and  entiusts the money to Blore to p'ut on  "Dandy Dick."v After all had retired  for the, night "'the Dean becomes imbued with-the^idea that something  -ought to be'done for the hoise in his  stables, ���������whicli"i8"supposed to be suffering from af chill  *���������-������������������   "*-   -"-���������'���������--    ������  THE BIG GAVES  Dominion Government Officials  Spend a Couple of Days in  Admiration of its Wondrous  Beauties  water   thrown  from   the effects of  over  him at the Are.

A week ago a patty consisting  of Howard Douglas, supetintcndetit of  National    Parks,    Banff,   R.   E.   A.  Leech,  govei nment inspector,   Brandon, Man., G. H.   Gieig,  secretary of  the   Live   Stock   Association   of   the  Department of Agticultiu0, Winnipeg,  A. Johnson, of the Herald,  Revelstoke aud Mr.  Henderson,  of Revelstoke,   visited   the   caves   to   fui thei  investigate and to verily the icport of  the 21st September.    The pai ty^ outfitted in the city and left by No. 98 on  Fiiday morning tho 29th Sept,. ai living in Cougar Basin, wheie the caves  are situated   at  4.30   o'clock   in   the  afternoon of the same day,  ieturning  to Glacier House at 12 o'clock noon, on  Sunday the fii st day of October,  after  spending two nights and two days in  the investigation of this  beauty  spot  of nature.   Mr.   Deutschman   piloted  the party thiough in  pei feet  safety  from stait to finish.    Satuiday  motn-  . ���������>' -  mg was spent in the exiimm,ition   of  the thiee firs.t discoveied ontiances  and wasenjoyed by the p.uty to the  full. Here and theie was shown the  work of nature, the mat. ble foimalion  and the action of water iu carving out  a com_e through the basin was most  beautiful. At this^point Mr. Deutschman had removed all tlie elements - of  danger by constructing ladders, which  allow rapid and easy' progress.' Not  "so, however, with thenewly discovered  "caves and caverns, which "were taken  rn-as far as possible in the time at our  disposal."j'About' three "houi's'1' under  grouncl in c this wohderful^forniation,  sufficed to prove that theie was something always ahead to.discover and as  far as could be seen there was uo end;  and yet the party had^not then covered  half the distance made by " the discoverer. On the go from 7.30 in the  morning until nearly five in the aftei-  noon was telling upon the tenderfoot  and the big caves were abandoned for  the present, after a'mile had beon  made only in the one channel. Upon  every side could be s,eeu off-shoots, or  other channels leading in different  directions. The enterance to the  newly discoveied caves is reached  thiough the canyon, and what a diop  to get down fiom the surface to the  canyon below. An inch rope tied to a  tree ou the surface and throw n down  the face of a perpendicular rock a  distance of 100 feet was not a tempting  proposal, but to get into the new caves  it was necessnry to face the music, as  it was the only way that the  entiance  CQuld_be_i cached. To_the_guide_it_was  easy, but to the uninitiated it was like  taking a leap in lho daik. Mr. Leech  was thu first to tackle the descent aud  with a rope tied round his waist just  under bis arms he was lowered "in  safety by Mr. Deutschman to the  bottom. Mr. Greig followed and one  by one thu balance of the party made  tho descent in a similar manner.  Limps wcte lighted and a stait made  into the big caves, through a sei ies of  chiuinels, nanow in places then widening out into immense caverns.  Hero and theio it was necessary to  crawl ou hands and knees over large  rocks, while from one to two bundled  feet below the river was roaiing down  through datk canyons. There were  danger spots along the route, which  added to the excitment and experience  of thc tiip. Itis impossible to desciibs  the grandeur of these immense ca veins  down ip darkness fully 1000 feet from  the surface. ,On thq walls were tons  of beautiful cathonates of lime (calsilfe)  with here and theie stalactites hanging fiom the loof fully 20 inches long.  The lights loflectiug upon theso making them sinctilate like myriads of  spaikling gems. Owing to the lateness  of the hour the par ty weie obliged to  return, fully satisfied that half the  story of tho Deutschman Caves has  not yet been told. Besides the caves,  Cougar Basin is an ideal spot and one  which in yeurs to come will attract  thousands of touridts. The trip was a  pleasurable one for the patty and all  were delighted wi*.h the sceneiy in the  neighborhood, which cannot be excelled in any pat t of the continent.  The Revelstoke Band.

The dramatic pictures ars full of vim,  vigor and reality, so much so that one  little chap said,"Its making me cry it's  so exciting." The scenic pictures are  novel and of national inteiest.

>CnOOSE A LIFE VOCATION.
There comes a time wlion every
growing boy must face the question:
What shall I do for a life work?
It is an important question. ono
lhat is as important to tho parents
as to the child. It is onc that must
be faced squarely and answered wisely.
And yet there arc many who shirk
and turn avvay, trying to avoid a
direct answer, leaving the solution to
what they hope will be a happy
chance.
Then tliere aro sons who leave tho
solution entirely to their parents;
and thero aro parents who leave it
all  to   tho  sons.
Each should consider tho matter
with diligence and frankness and
come to a determination agreeable to
both.
Ib considering tho problem it will
be well to remember several things.
In tlie frrst place nil real success
must bc founded in tho economic
principal of becoming a producing
member of tho great industrial
scheme. There is no room in the
world for a drone.
Everybody must-produce something
Ibe man who produces what is most
needed and most wanted receives the
largest  rewards.
As a general rule it is wise to try
to produce something of which the
supply is scant. In any case, it is
prudent to avoid thoso occupations
in which there is already a surplus
of the product. For instance, tho
world is not crying for lawyers, doctors, preachers, or accountants. Tiio
so-called professions are overcrowded. Thero is a largo surplus stock
of legal advice on the market; also
medical advice and of bookkeeping.
Consequently the rewards are diminishing.
The kind of man that is most plentiful in the market is the one who
knows no business in particular and
wants something in which he can
wear good clothes while at work.
The man most in demand and least
plentiful is the one who has had actual experience vvith some occupation
whicli soils thc hands and tho clothes
and who, at the same time, has the
capacity for planning and directing.
A railway manager who has tramped tho tics and built a trestle, n
book publisher who lias set typo; a
lumber dealer who has served as a
lumber jack: a contractor who has
"measured in" and "checked out"���
in a word, the man most in demand
and hardest to find is thc one who
has learned some line of business
from the basement to thc 'front office." The men who want to learn
a business from the top down are
plentiful
This is a -jreat industrial era.
Tliere are opportunities for all. Every
ten or twenty years the great industrial army must be recruited anew.
The time has passed when it was not
"respectable" to be anything but a
"professional man." Science and
learning have become the handmaidens  of  the industrial  arts.
To-day anything is honorable   that
is    done   well.     Produco something���
pivc something to the world, and the
world  will   pour   its    blessing     into

THE   EVILS   OF   GAMBLING.
An    Appeal   to  King to  Use    His
Influence Against  It.
A striking sermon on "Tho Sin of
Hazard," vvas delivered a few Sundays ago at the City Temple. London, England, by the Rev. It. J.
Campbell.
The preacher spoke of tho unhealthy
desire to gamble which  too often accompanied  our national  sports     and
even   our   indoor  pastimes.   The    sin
of hazard was, in his opinion, one of
tho most outstanding of our national vices, and one which every serious-
minded      patriot   must     foci " v.ns a
menace to tho well-being of the com-1
munity and to  our Imperial  destiny. I
Tho gambling evil had penetrated to ! too:  nl*oU'<;*.
the highest grades of our social  life,   lunitii-s ^wiii
to   our  commercial  lifo,   and   to   our
sports, "but tho most regrettable len-
turo  of  all   was  tho   wny   in     which
the desire for    gambling had   spread
to  the  lower  classes,   among     whom
tho      "copper book-maker" and     tho
small moneylender    had firmly established   thorns.Ives.
With regard to gambling in society,
Mr. Campbell could only sa.v that if
half the stories which were told
about ths sums of money lost and won
at "bridge" among the upper- classes
were true, they formed a very c\ il
portent for the furirre of the race. Tt
was only fair to say thot there was
to-day"a healthier feeling nmong tlu
highest grades of society than existed in the eighteenth century, for instance, when statesmen of (hc highest rank gambled away their on tire
fortune. Still, it was to the upper-
classes of society that the cot'nlr.v
naturally looked for nn example, and
it wa.s to be regretted that tlio sin
of hazard was manifested in so
marked a manner in connection with
tho game  of "bridge."
AN  APPEAL  TO .THE. KING.
In our commercial life there wore
many phases of activity which wore
not ordinarily described as gambling-,
but which partook of that character,
and whicli were certainly examples of
the sin of hazard. Specula! ion in
many of its forms was merely a desire on tlie part of some person or
persons to get rich quickly. 'I his
desire wa.s in itself essentially vicious, because, it added nothing to
the wealth of tho community, liut
merely acquired for one man what
might be looked upon as belonging
to other people.
With all respect, continued the pastor, he desired to add a word concerning thc influence which nii'iht l.e
exercised by the King. Iris JMajosty
was much loved by his peoplo: he
had proved himself worthy of tl.o
postion, and had rightly earned i'or
himself the title of "tlie poacenial.fr
of tho world." If tho King would
exert-his-great-influenco-iu scpai'sting-
gambling from sport, and in d>s-
countenacing what was essentially
evil, and encouraging what, was essentially good, a verv much more
healthy impulse miglit bc given to
tho sports  of  tho  nation.
The following note reached a
schoolmaster from a l> y's father, informing hiin of tho cause >f his son's
abPonce from ' scho 1 t ',o previous
day*. It naturally cau'ed some merriment and,* judging '.': in tho way-
he signs the epistle, it in no way
flatter, him. Tho note rnr, as follows: "Please cks.upc I ��� mmy not
being al school yestcniiy- >s ho was
kept at  home to wash���his father."

ARRANGEMENTS ON FOOT.
It is believed that the military

put themselves in connection wilh

made toward the expenses of tho vol-
come to Ihu reviuvv
ns soon ns definite information has been obtained
upon this poinl. no time will be lost
in communicating wilh commanders
of corps throughout the country.
Edinburgh is sure to mako a good
contribution to the gathering, for it
will be tho desire of the brigades of
which Lord I'rovost Cranston is so
popular a commander to turn out in
such numbers as" wiil demonstrate to
his Majesty how admirably hn has
interpreted the feeling of lho volunteers of the capital. All over Scotland the same feeling is b-'lioved to
prevail, and there is general expectation that throughout the country
the day will bo observed as a general holiday. This vvill moan an influx
of People to the capita! on a scale
which will help to make up for thc
lack of visitors,recently complained
of. The various railways will undoubtedly ofTcr tempting facilities
wliich will insure an immense attendance of spectators. II will provide,
of the too rare I'ppor-
ch people from every
part o." Scotland have of testifying
how popular his Majesty is among
his Scot! ish subjects.
HELP   VOLUNTEER     MOVEMENT.
The review will also tend to infuse
new lifo inlo thc volunteer movement, which in .Scotland, ns in some
parts of'England, hns rather sulror-
ed in popularity within recent years
as thc result of what, rightly or
wrongly, is regarded as tho want
of genuine practical interest on tlio
part of the war oflice. Tt is not
yet known whether lhe Queen is to
accompany thr: King, but if his Majesty is accompanied by his royal
cnusort, this will only lend additional eclat to v.hat has every prospect,
of being (, a memorable occasion in
.Scottish hislory. Unfortunately the
la.st review took place on what was
ono of lhe welt est, days on record.
Put. be the weather what it may this

AUNTY  GLEN'S   CURE.
How  tho  Old Lady  Got  Rid  of  a
Dreadful Headache.
Tommy Pornoroy's pneumonia led
to a discussion al tho sewing-club
between an advocate of mustard
plasters and a believer in cold-water
applications.
"What a variety of cures there
are," remarked Miss Everett, pleasantly, with a meaning look at the
others. "Yesterday 1 hoard of the
'laughing  euro'!"
"Indeed!" 'The minister's wifo
hastened to help in steering* conversation away from lho belligerents.
"You've kept yourself so young,
Sirs. Glen, you must have something
interesting  to  contribute  on   cur.-s.' .
Tho old lady thus addressed was
a recent comer, but it was gradually dawning on tho community that
thoy had a saint among them���7011c
of the unobtrusive, happy, healthy
kind. Children woro already calling
her  "Aunty  Glen."
"Do you b-Iievo in mustard?" demanded   the  determined  advocate.
"For (hoso that it benefits, yes,"
said -Irs.   Glon,  gcnlly.
"Hut tell us' how you havo kept
woll," hastily interposed Miss Everett. ,  A
"X don't mind telling, but I guess
you'll think it's ��� a funny kind of
curo," iJIrs. Glen replied, wilh a
smile. "Once, "years ago, T had a
dreadful headache. I hadn't" slept
a wink tho . night before���T was
'grieving.nbout a friend that hadn't

"1 was just brooding away, going
over and over in my mind what I'd

'Now,' snid I to myself, 's'pose Me-
hilabcl Record did-really do it, is
lhat a reason wiry you should grow
a  grudge?"
"So I set right about forgiving
hcr
soon   T  just loved  Mehitabcl  Record,

The need!-.- wero motionless. Tho
speaker, although (lushing under tho
gaze  of many  eyes,   continued:
"And when I'd thoroughly forgiven Mehitabcl���why, my headache
wns gone, and f felt nice all over. It
set mo to thinking. Aflor that,
wher.pver T had an ncho or pain, I

Tho Supremo Court of tho Independent Order of Foresters hold ils
triennial session at Atlantic City,
New .1 ersey, recently. Tho reports
.submitted at this mooting show the
society to bo a wonderfully prosperous ono. An Independent' Finance
Committee investigated all tho securities, etc., and reported that thoy
found the business affairs of tho order managed in a thoroughly business manner, thc investments safely
nnd wisely made, and that no losses
had boon incurred during all tho
year's of the order's history. Tho
order's accumulated funds have increased in tho Inst three jears $3,-
272,8-5.01. The order's position is
growing better every year, for
instance, tho increase in accumulated
assets      during     lho      last two
years, 1903-4, wns 31.3- per cont.,
whilo tho increase in insurance at
risk during the samo period was only
G.97 por cent. Tho order has increased its accumulated funds since the
last meeting of the Supremo Court
moro rapidly than it increased in any
equal time previously. During tho
313 working days of the year thc
order pays out S3,892.89 per day,
and each dny puts" away a' surplus
of S3,907. The order's accumulated
funds now amount to over $9,000,-
000, and these, the committee reports, nre all well and safely invested. Tho society has added 13,000
members net for each year of tho
past triennial period. No' changes
were made in the rates, the Supreme
Chief Ranger -contending thnt tho
rates of tho order at thc present timo
woro ample.
All tho Supremo Executive wero reelected, with.Hon. Dr. Oronhyatckha
at their head. It 'should bo added
that tho death rate of tho order is
low, indeed much lower than it was
some years ago, and the average ago
of tho membership is only thirty-
soven. The medical work seems,
therefore, to be well and carefully
done. As a fraternal society lho
Independent Order of Foresters certainly has been a wonderful success,
and something of ils financial
strength may be understood from
the fact that the reports show that
it has already enough in its treasury

neither printed nor written. Tho
letters of thc book are oil cut out
of vellum and pasted on blue paper.
Tho book is as easy to read ns if
printed from the boldest typo. All
the characters aro cut out with
marvellous precision and uniformity,
and this dexterous piece of handicraft must have re<pih*cd a groat
amount of- time, labor and patience
by the author. Thc volume boars
tiio title "Tho.Book of all Passions
of Our >-Loi*(l M.csiis Christ, with
characters not composed of any.material." Tt is said lhat in 1640 the
Gorman Emperor, Rudolph. II..- offered the enormous sum. of. 13";0,00 ducats for this wonderful, but yot. curious, work bf art. What makes the-
history of the book more peculiar is
the fact that* tho English arms are
inscribed upon it, although tho book
is supposed never, to have been in
England.

"It's bcycwliful, Duchess!" he  criod. "Just my style. Thank you  very much  for  thinking of me."  "That's all righto!" she said. And  shu filing through tho door, she commenced merrily lo Kum 'tho" chorus  of tho song-she .had sung to him. ,  She was still humming when" he  left the house.'

In a recent issue The Financier,  London, England, bus the following  niticle on British Columbia :  "Although British Columbia looms  less largely in tlie public eye than was  the case a few years ago tlie Piovince,  in common with the rest of the Dominion, is able to report progress  which those most directly interested  in its fortunes pronounce in every way  satisfactory. The banner crops of  Manitoba and the North West Pio-  vinces, the industrial developments in  Eastern Canada and the exploitation  of the marvellous mineral resources of  North Ontario have all contributed to  distract public attention from Biitish  Columbia. In many ways this is to  the advantage of the Province. A  new country's development on sane  and satisfactory lines lias often been  retarded by efforts to live always in  the limelight.  "British   Columbia's   destinies   fortunately   are   in   the   hands of  men  who know what they want and where  they  are   going.     For the most part  they are men who have grown up and  grown old vvith the Province, and today   they   see   a  province in   which  business of every kind is making moie  than   merely    satisfactory   progress,  and they know that in the noar futuie  the land of their birth or adoption will  play "an-uncommonly-prominent pint  in the trade and politics of the Pacific.  "Biitish Columbia never vvas, and is  never likely to  be, a poor man's countrj*.'    It is a region richly dowered by  nature, but until the day arrives when  lier industries and  her trade connections   have   achieved   their destinies,  the opportunities afforded the moneyless  settler   are few and far between. I  But for the man with a modest capital  at   his   back  the province has many  attractions   to offer.     Fiuit farming,  for 'example, has  become one of the  recognised  industries of the province.  A man  who knows something about  the business can depend upon making  an excellent living out of from 10 to 20  acres of land under cultivation.    Official reports show that farm after farm  has yielded its owners from ������20 to ������40  per  acre   profit, these   figure,   being  arrived at after deducting living expenses.    For the man who is prepared  to launch out on  a larger scale, there  is   the timber business awaiting his  attention, and   when   it is said that  British   Columbia   contains the finest  timber and  the largest forests on the  Pacific Coast, tbat not only dees America, but  Asia,   require   endless supplies of wood  for nil purposes, it will  be seen  the opportunities for successful trade in this direction are almost  endless.  "A   reference   to British Columbia  jnining  may seem   to   the British in  vestor like waving a red rug in the  face of an angry bull, and any statement which goes to show that in the  Province there are many profitable  mining ventures today maj' be taken  by that same individual as adding  insult to injury. It would be well,  however, to remember that the Piovince had nothing to do vvith the discovery of these mines, very little to do  with their original development, and  had no say in the fixing of the capital  amounts at which they were offered  to the British investor. And, even  after all the-collapses and disasters  which have taken, it is possible that  some of the properties will, in that  classic phrase, 'muddle through' to a  condition of comparative prosperity.  During the past few years, however,  Rossland and its failures have been  eclipsed by the successes which have  attended mining operations at Atlin.  Here hydraulicing is the method requited to obtain the best results in  what i. known in Canada as the poor  man's mining country, owing to the  tact that anyone with a spade and  shovel has been able until quite recently to dig out of the stieam beds  and the ban_s a moderate competence  in a brief period of time. Now larger  methods are necessary, but there is no  question as to the richness of the dirt  to be flumed in the Atlin district, and  indeed in many other quarters of tbe  Province. For this, of course, capital  is wanted, and as there are so many  outlets for money in British Columbia  at the present moment, it is possible  that mining by dredging and hydraulicing mav* have to wait its turn.  "Although British Columbia in the  natural course of events must grow  rich and prosperous by the development of its internal resources, the  Province seems destined to play a  larger   part   in   the   history    of   the  world's ttade than it would have been  deemed sane to foreshadow a decade  or two ago. When the Canadian Pacific struck the coast at Vancouver  much more in the historj- of trade  .and commerce was accomplished than  meiely opening up a rapid route to a  British possession which had been  more or less cut off from communication with the rest of the Empire. A  blow was struck at the United States  trade supremacy in these seas, and an  all-Biilish route to our Eastern possessions and numerous neutral markets were established. The beginning  -of the end, which is the shifting of the  centre of the trade balance from the  Atlantic to the Pacific, was then accomplished, although probably but  few men understood or appreciated  this fact at the time. In British Columbia it is cei'tain hardly an individual foresaw what was hound to happen,  and all looked upon the railway not  as foreshadowing the conversion of  the Province into a great Far Eastern  entrepot, but as a means of transporting the products of the Far West to  Great Britain and Europe. To-day  Vancouver as a port is gradually  smothering Seattle and Oregon, and is*  quietly, but surely, ousting San Francisco from its pre-eminence as tho  gieat trading centre of the Pacific.  British Columbia has established good  trading connections with China, Japan, India  and  Australia for lier pro  ducts, and is becoming an important  factor in the expert totals of these  countries. British Columbian coal  and wood and agricultural products  are known and valued throughout tho  Pacific; indeed, there is hardly a ton  of coal burned in San Francisco which  does not come from the Vancouver  mines. The town itself is advancing  yearly in sizo and importance, and the  Canadian Pacific Railway, probably  the most progressive company of its  kind in existence, 1ms seen that nothing it can do to help forward tho  pi'ospi-nty of lho city litis been left  undone.  "In a comparatively brief period of  timo a second transcontinental line,  thc Grand Trunk Pacific, vvill reach  tho seabornd. At tho present moment lho exact terminus of tho line is  unknown. Poit Simpson has been  fixed upon by popular rumour its the  spot where the system will end, but it  will bo reinoinbercd that when tbe  Canadian Pacific was Hearing the seaboard at least half-a-dozen termini  were fixed upon���������by land speculators  and other interested parties. So far  as situation goes, Port Simpson would  suit the Trunk- Pacific very well, but  there are other locations further south  which, on met its alone, would seem to  have better claims for consideration.  It vvill probably be found that the  terminus decided upon will bc situated  from forty to flftj' miles south of Port  Simpson, if, indeed, the company does  not in the end execute a volte face,  and fix upon Vancouver city. At tho  present moment thc two companies  are'not the best of fi iends, but in the  original agreement it was .clearly  stated that, so far as terminal facilities  were concerned, no opposition -would  be offered by the Canadian Pacific to  whatever choice the Trnnk Pacific  cared to make. But wherever the  new line ends, it must end in British  Columbia, and thus add to the Province's importance as a factor in the  Pacific trade, and this is the matter in  which all, except pet haps a few local  land speculators, are really interested  at the piesent moment."

My  cin, guests at the event, are suffering  from injuries from which tliey may  die. Two other men have been arrested aa the aggressors in the fight.  There was much joy at the feast until  two unbidden guests appeared in the  early hours of the niorning and proceeded to raise a disturbance. They  were remonstrated with, but insisted  on dancing with the bride, and to  enforce their demands kept fhe rest of  the crowd at a respectful distance by  firing off revolvers in the air.  When their weapons were empty  the crowd rushed in, but the two uninvited reached for other weapons, and  in the melee Kirat received a nasty  blow from an axe on the forehead just  above the left eye, and Mycan was  stabbed in the arm, and a painful  wound inflicted.  Yesterday afternoon Detective Seel  arrested Mike Shtimanski*atrd J. Maz-  nck on the charge of being the aggressors in the quarrel.  20th  Century  Business College  -    VICTORIA,   B.

This   man   had,    previous  to  his  final  emigration   to   tho   Mow  World, pusscd   through a life of   tho  most   wonderful   vicissitudes���������wonderful   even  for    thoso  days   of  romance  and  adventure.   It  was said that hc  Was bora in one quarter of tho globe,  educated  ln  another,   initiated     into  .���������warfare  in  the  third  and  buriod     in  tiie fourth.       In  his  boyhood ho was  the friend and pupil  of Guy  Kawk. s;  he engaged  in  tho     Gunpowder Plot,  and after witnessing the terriblo fate  of his master, he escaped to  Spanish  America,   whero    ho  led    for years  a  sort of buccaneer life.   lie afterwards  returned to Europe, and  then followed  years   of  military service    whero-  evcr his  hireling    sword  was  needed.  But  the soldier  of  fortune  was     iU-  paid  by his    mistress.       His misfortunes were as proverbial ns his bravery,   or  as    his  energetic  complaints  of  "ill  luck"  could  make thom.     Ho  had drawn his sword ih almost ovory  quarrel  of his time,  on fevcry battlefield in Europe, to find himself at the  end  if his military career,  no  richer  than he was at its beginning-���������savo in  wounds and scars,  honor and   glory,  and  a  wife and son.   It was at this  point  of  his  life  that  ho  met     with  Leonard Calvert,  anil embarked with  him   for  Maryland,   where   ho    afterwards   received from   Che Lord   Proprietary     tho     grant    of the manor  "aforesaid."     It is slutcd'that when  the old soldier went with' somo companions  to  tako a  look at  his     new  possessions,  he  was  so pleased    with  tho   beauty,   grandeur,  richness   and  promise of     tho   place that a    glad  smile   broko    over  his  dark,    storm-  ���������   beaten,    battle-scarred  faco,   and     he  remained still  "smiling as in delighted visions," until one **of his   friends  "spoke  and   aaid: ' ;    -  "Well, comrade! .Is this luck  enough?" .   -    -   .    ._  "Ya*w, mine frient!" answered tho  new lord of tho manor in his broken  English, cordially grasping the hand  of his companion, '.'dish ish loko  cnoughtl" /-��������� *  Different constructions have beon  put upon this simple answer���������first,  that, Lukkinnuf was. the original Indian name of the- tract; secondly,  that Alexander Kalouga christened  his manor in honor of Loekenoff, tho  native village of his campaigns and  voyages, and the first lady of his  manor; thirdly, that the grateful and !  happy soldier had only meant to express his perfect satisfaction  his fortune, and to say:  "Yes, this is luck enough!  enough to repay mo for all  past!" v.  Be it as it may, from time immemorial the place has been "Luck-  enough.'-'  The owner in 1814 was Commodore  Nickolas Waugh, who inherited the  property in right of his mother, the  only chiid and heiress of Peter  Kalouga.  This man had the constitution and  character, not of his mother's, but  of his father's family���������a hardy, rigorous, energetic Montgomery race,  full of lire, spirit and enterprise. At  the age of twelve Nicholas lost his  father.  At fifteen he began to weary of the  todiumiof Luckenough, varied only  by the -restraint of the academy during term. And at sixteen he rebelled  against the rule of his indolent lym-  -phatic-mnmma;���������broke-through the'  reins of domestic government, escaped to Baltimore and shipped as  cabin  boy in a merchantman.  Nicholas Waugh went through  many adventures, served on board  merchantmen, privateers and haply  pirates, too, sailed to every part of  the known world, and led a wild,  reckless and- sinful life, until tho  breaking out of tHe Revolutionary  War. whon ho took service with Paul  Jones, the American Sea King, nnd  turned thc brighter part of his character up to the light. Ho performed  miracles of valor���������achieved for himself a name and a post-captain's rank  in the infant navy and finally  permitted to rctiro with a bullet  lodged   under   his  shoulder 'blade.  floor and stairs and every available  chair.  He had brought presents for everybody. Lion and tiger skins, elephants' tusks, littlo nuggets of virgin gold, old Dutch pottery bought  of tho Boors, ostrich feathers asso-  gais, and Zulu shields of rawhide;  trinkets that had adorned dusty  Kaffir beauties; and laughingly, admiringly, wonderingly, the two women got surrounded and hemmed in  by tho miscellaneous collection, listening to tho story which Koyce had  to  tell  respecting  each.

Tho average price of buttcr fat  at tho college creamery during tho  past year was 21.08. Deduct from  this the cost of a skim milk calf,  $3.56 and wo havo left S4.01 to pay  for the expenses of milking and hauling 958 pounds of milk to tho creamery.  Thoso figures do not toll tho wholo  story ns to tho profit, Cows that  aro milked produce larger yields than  when sucking a calf. For instance,  the college herd has averaged 6,-  273.6 pounds of milk per cow during  tho "year 1902. Tho amount of skim  milk consumed by tho skim milk  calf represents 1,978 pounds of whole  milk. Subtract this from tho aver-  ago products of tlio average cow in  tho college herd and we have 1,295.0  pounds to ' bo credited to raising  calves   on. skim  milk.  According to the average tost of  tho herd, this milk would contain  175,26 pounds of butler fat, which,  at 21,08 cents per pound, would  amount to $36.95. Tliis 4,295.6  pound of extra whole milk producod  by tho cow that is milked would  yield 3,866.1. pounds, -of skim milk,  per 100, would be  worth 55.80, or a total of .12.75  additional incomo per cow. Add to  this tho ������17.01, tlie income from  the butter fat secure from the milk  furnishing tho skim milk for tho calf,  and we have a total of $59,76. Deduct from this the cost of raising a  calf, $7.13, and wc havo left 552.-  ,33 to pay for tho expenses of milking and the 'hauling of 6,273.6 lbs.  of milk to tho croamery.

RURAL SANITATION.  Sanitation about the home should  interest people living in rural districts. Too often it is found that  littlo heed is paid to even the  most simple means of prevention  against diseaso arid frequently a long  illness of somo members of tho family may be attrfbuted to this carelessness, which, had the proper measures of prevention been adopted  might have been avoided.  Sanitation     should     bc      marie     ai  point of study by those who     desire  to    guard   against    illness.       Disense1  germs   lurk   within tho  heaps  of   old!  rubbish   which  are  often  allowed    to  accumulate about  tho yardH.   The removal   of  such   accumulations     from  tho   premises    is  conductive   to     thc  health  of  tho residents,  and  adds to  tho  beauty and  attractiveness  of  the  home.

It was Nlebuhr who  first discovered that thoro was a  temple near Sinai. But it might  have been just an ordinary Egyptian  temple to Osiris, Isis or any of that*  motley crowd who dog the days and  hnunt tho nights of tho modern  Egyptian  tourist.  It  has  now   been   thoroughly  up   and   has   boen   discovered   to  a Semitic  temple,  n  tempi?   for  .lows  and   their  kindred  races,  contains  a  vast     number  of cubicles  for  pilgrims     who     went     to  dream  dreams  nfter   the  manner  of  and   Joseph,  and  hundreds  of     littlo  "Bethel"  .stones  which  they  erected,  even  as  .Tncoi) did,     to celebrate     a  really fortunate dream.     Of     course.  Dr.   Peli'Ic  Is  much   too  cautious     a  stud������nt    to  suggest,    nny connection  between  this  temple and the   .Jewish  rCxoduH.       But  may  not   the suggestion at nny rate ho thrown  out that  It was  lo  this spot  thut Moses first  wished   io    h-ad   the   Jewish     exiles?

So many  peoples were carried captive that the  memory of tho Jews was lost among  theni. But that is what adds to the  value of this Semitic temple at  Sinai.  Ono most astonishing thing about  the find is the discovery of a great  mass of'burnt ashes, tho remains of  many thousands of burnt offerings  by oilier Semitic visitors���������perhaps  from Tyro or Sidon, or other parts  of that breat Semite world which  was eclipsed by tho rise of Assyria.

The prisons have nothing in  mon with the terror-striking pictures  painted by tho European prints, in  which wo aro told that the- convicts  are always chained to their carts,  and that thpy are forced to sleep on  tho baro ground. Tho fact is that in  Alexainlrovsk., for example, oul of  about seventeen hundred so-called  fettered criminals. only four aro  chained to their carts." Theso men  havo not only one, but several mon's  lives ou thoir .consciences, nnd the  fiendish, manner of their transgressions demands heavy punishment.  Two of them were convictod of  several murders in Russia, and after.  reaching Snghalion escaped from  prison and wero again guilty of  similar offences.

Tlioro are many ways in which  foodstuffs may give rise to more or  less serious disturbances of health,  and it is particulaily during the  summer weather that such accidents  are Ii .ely to happen. Ollicial examinations are constantly revealing  how widespread is the practice of  adding preseitntitcs or adulteiants  to viands of all sorts, and though  it must be admitted that in many  instances these substances are by  their nature or. the stnallness of tho  quantities used comparatively harmless, still in the majority of cases  tho conditions are such ns to reneler  their presence extremely undesirable.  But cnluely apart from these, severe illness not infrequently follows  the use of certain common foods. In  animal foods, extremely poisonous  pi inciples called ptomains easily appear as thc result of bacterial activity, and may cause wholesale illness  Hairy products are especially prone  to such changes, and if not properly  cared for may develop tyrotoxicon, or  cheese poison, a substance that is  not rare in ice-cream, while botulism is a seu'ious form of ptomain-  poisoning following the eating of  tainted meat or sausage.  Fish anel shell-lish yield similar  products? a specially vicious poison  named mytiiotoxtn having been isolated from mussels, and canned  things are also often offenders in  this way.  The symptoms produced by theso  substances may be extremely severe,  and comprise intense gastric pain,  vomiting, intestinal disturbances,  burning thirst, constriction of tho  throat-, nnd oftentimes disturbance  ight, euch as hazy and double  vision. In marked cases there is  great prostration and weakness of  the heart, which may last for weeks.  The piactical lesson to be drawn  from a consideration of these possibilities is the necessity for scrupulous e^ire in the handling of all  things intended for table use All  perishable foods must be consumed  as quicklv ns possible, and must  never be left out of the ice-chest  longer than is absolutely necessary. .  Canned foods should be entirely re- >  moved from the tin as soon as  opened, and nothing that is intended  to bo eat/m should ever be allowed  to stand unprotected from the dust.  The air is constantly swarming with  bacteria and mold spores, which find  admirable conditions for growth , in  the dishes prepared for the human  stomach, and often give rise to the  production of the poisons in question. Lastly, every article of food,  tinned or otherwise, that is at all  abnormal in appearance, taste or ~  odor should bc discarded.  HEALTH HINTS'.

The private car of Mr. Charles 31.

Dear Sin,���What new form "of
mania has struck the -editor
of the Mail that he im so" anxious to
change the names of. well: "known
places ' in the vicinity of" this
city. .Take the S-Mile-Falls for instance on tho Big Bend trail. Tbis
name has been known to old timers
and everyone else "since the eatly days
when the present city of Revelstoke
was known as the town of Farwell.'
The Af Ail man now proposes to change
it to the Hallo-holla Hallelujah Falls.
Don't you think this is pure nonsense?
Might as well call it "Hot * Air'"FaIls
and be done with it.j These old land
marks and old names'should stand and
uot be changed every time a new
paper or a new editor happens around.
Let the name 8-Mile Falls stand so
that when any of the old timeis'come
lound they will know where to find it.
Yours truly,.
Old Timer.
