The advertising possibilities  of such an enterprise are greater than  one is apt to realize.' The show In  Spokane has done an ehbrthous amount  of good to that city and the country  tributary to it���������to the,whole of the Pacific Northwest.-In fact. It has brought  the fruitpossibilities of;this section to  the notice of the world as no other  agency has done. At the last show  held there buyers were present from  all parts of this continent, from Great  Britain, Germany and France. The exhibitors we,re not put to the trouble  and expense of removing their exhibits,  instead they carried in their pockets  the money paid for their fruit by eager  buyers. One exhibitor of a carload  and there were twelve or thirteen such  exhibits, received flOOO in prize money  "and $20C0 for his exhibit, a total of  $3000 for that whose cost of production  was about $600.  Vancouver can provide a show equal  in all respects to that of Spokane. The  fruit growing sections of "the Northwest are as convenient to our city as  to the city of Spokane, and the interest In British Columbia on the part  of dealers on this continent is greater ��������� thwn that manifested by them In.  any other section of the West. Nothing could be of greater value to pur  prosperity than the publication of the  facts relating to out" fruit possibilities  and the publication of these could hot  ��������� be accomplished "; Iif any" other way  quite so effective as would be the exhibition offojir,: fruit products. There  are probably 100,000 acres in B. C.  planted in orchards, and experts familial- with* the facts;' agree that Ube  land ������������������ suitable for fruit: production   In  7-B: 'C. amounts > trt not 'less than lw������j  millions of acres. 7And: in the^natutv  of Ihe cas������ thisf must be a conservative  estimate, tor Itcovers;only the explor-  ed i sections, and no one knows, how  mm Ii more such land is included in the  rest areas of this ''great "province' which  baye not been.examined. ;':���������,.;  Furthermore, the. market exists for  all- present and future possibilities bt  production- Less than 20- per cent, ot  the fruit now consumed in the prairie  provinces is supplied by B. C. and thai  because, we have not the fruit 'to! give-  them. That is to say, we cannot supply our natural markets now. These  markets are growing yearly at ah eir  ormous rate���������much faster than is din-  ability tq meet their demands-���������or indeed, any reasonable proportion of  them. t  We have tbe' land, the'.markets are  waiting for our product���������we need the  men. The. men are ready top. It remains only for us to show them what  we have to offer them. This we can  do in a most effective way. with the  proper apple show. Vancouver, as the  commercial centre of the Canadian  coast. Is properly enough taking the  Initiative, seeking not ajone her own  advantage, but as lone the good of the  nation.  <--    *    *  While all think Hie Coiiii"������j :������c"������d  properly under existing circumstance-.;  in, deferring action respecting the giving of a franchise to a second telephone company, we do not'-agree with  those who think the duplication of telephone services In a������city to be the sum  ?f all telephonic: evil8:i:;:.v ;  We know, of course, that a single effective service is better than two partial '*! services^ ''but" know "also that competition it* telephones is better.-than  monopoly, operated by, a company  whose only apparent'interest in its  subscribers is manifested on collection  day. In /Vancouver -we- have- anything  but an ideal service. After making all  due allowance for the- rapid growth of  tlie ..city, it is impossible to believe  that the B. C. Telephone Company is  making any reasonably earnest effort  to meet; the requirements of the people of this city. Would, the subscribers have to wait''week's before-ihey can  get a phone put in? Phones are'out  of use for days at a.time. The.company being so pushed with orders as to  be unable to give 'attention to these  matters. At the same time it finds men  arid' machines in plenty to put In pay  BY PROFESSOR ODLUM  stations.   There is something singular agam to ���������& r(iri���������er estateT But' as a  in this, and subscribers whose phones  ,ule he is unable-,to do so to advan-  are  'dead'- for days.at a time can get   ,age> 6r at-least he so thinks,  what comfort they can find in the fact a  that the company Is too busy putting in J    The most independent men on earth  pay stations to bother with a mere sub- j a,,e"the average farmers.

Another, and- a most exasperating  fact-, in connection with our toiephoue  service is that subscribers who happen  to^live beyond the bounds of ft certain  area .are charged a higher rental than  those living within them.

Among these scientists were Sir William Dawson and his son Sir William.  Before their day Sir William Logan,  the discoverer. he!d the same opinion;  and the late Doctor Sehvyn belonged  to this schol of thought/ - Having examined the. rock .in its. native habitat  in Orcnville and he Petite .Nation, in  the province of Quebec, the writer  long since came to the conclusion as  above .stated.      -.- - ��������� .������������������.������������������.;��������� -.- :^:..  This most remarkable "fosisir': was  naiued "Eozoon Canadense'' by '������������������ the  discoverer. The name, freely trans-  Jated, means the animal of early dawn,  and the proper adjective aserts that  the morning dawn animal was a: Canadian. The pros and'cons have been  presented for and against the conclusion of the three Sir Williams, all of  Canadian distinction, over.a.period of  forty years. Perhaps a definite proof  will never be discovered, and perhaps convincing testimony. will be  found in the rocks of the Ottawa valley ere long. In any case the discovery by Sir WHIiam liOgan of the  remarkable specimen helped to make  Canada more prominent among geologists and paleontologists than had  been the case previously. >  |h the Canadian Yukon many: splendid specimens of mammoth and nias-  Uxions-h������ve been found, ad have made  their} jway to. tne front in a telling  manlier.: y\ any of the best; specimens  muctfj'Veajftier^ mhseums; while'  .."Back; to the^farm," says-the;great  railway king.

'  th<  Canada has been madly running after  the almighty dollar. In a few years,  when our public men are public spirited enough to turn their attention to  the preservation of these silent' witnesses of ancient animal giants, then  the beBt of them wlli have been placed  in-the murteums of others, more .wide',  awake and more enterprising.  Perhaps the most wonderful animal  remains ever found In Canada, are  those which came from Queen Charlotte Islands, out on our Western  coast. In the North Pacific Ocean.  They have been on exhibition in Vancouver. New Westminster, Victoria.  Seattle and other western cities.  Many bids have been, made for theni  by those representing educational institutions, but so far they have not.  permanently���������left^Vancouver. __LJm_  In my opinion these are distinct  remains of at least three animals.' In  a general way I may say that no such  tnegatheria live previously been found  In Canada. This is saying much, and  if my assertion is true, then it surely  would be appropriate for Vancouver  city, or Victoria, through the Province,  to   retain   these   antediluvian   relics.,  and thus prevent them going to some j    The   ������reat   ornithologist   Owen,   on  other   country. *  I'have  no idea  of the  sum  which  f:'.p':-:--;:l-.::^#^  %.:t;77,;'.m':-|::arv  ��������� .at, his./own ..cost,., a.large, brick  ami stone ' building In l^ohdori,' England, in which to place the model. It  is In truth one of the most interesting  sights in the British Empire, so far  as ahtedluvian representatives are  concerned.  And though, in all parts of. the civilized World, immense sums are spent  in' procuring such animal relics, or  models of tliein. .vet in our own country, where we have some, of the very,  beat specimens, we It others from  abroad coins^ and carry them to educate the populations of other lands.  What would be of intense interest  to Canadians and especially to British  Columbians, would be the securing of  these specimens of megatheria for our  museums, and build them up in full,  supplying artificially the parts that  are missing.  In resuming the_n������val debate In the^  Commons. E.^l.Alacdonald; member/  for Plctou. made a strong defense off  the government's scheme.

We refjer to be suberraueari  flow of. water Sunder pressure along  toe face 6f foundations, siibways" sewers ami other subterranean masonry  work. Where such flow occurs, as for  Instance along the outside of a .sewer,  there is liable to be a washing away  and displacement of the soil or other  material; and where the . sewers are  tilled with water under hydraulic pressure': due to a -considerable head, such  as exists in the flooded district of  Paris, it can easily be' seen that, having but little strength to resist an  outward thrust, they would be easily  burst open, particularly if, as suggested, the enclosing soil had been washed away by tbe flow of water along  their outer surface. Only when the  floods have subsided and a full exam-'  |,ination can be made, will the full  measure of tbe present disaster be ascertained; but the probabilities are  that the rebuilding of sub-surface construction will have to be done on an  enormous scale.  Unquestionably one result of the  floor will be the undertaking of public works designed to prevent any  repetition of the disaster. An obvious  plan would be to build a masonry retaining wall, or levee, throughout the  whole length of the city and for some  distance above it, carrying tbe work to  & height sufficient to prevent any. future overflow. So enormous has been  toe volume of water that has come  down, that unless the walls were carried to an inconvenient height, it  would be necessary to increase the  cross sectional area of the channel  either by dredging, which is practicable, or by widening, which because  of the great value of the property  that would have to be condemned for  this purpose would Beem to be out of  the question. There can be little  doubt that the overflow at Paris' has  been greatly increased by the presence of so many masonry bridges, each  3f which embodies several heavy  masonry piers that greatly reduce the  area of the channel; and if the municipal engineers - undertake a sufficient  enlargement to absolutely prevent future overflows tne question of the obstruction presented by these bridges  must surely come up for consideration. Judging from the reports It  |wquld seem that not only the piers,  but tbe superstructures of tbe bridgeaj  themselves have served to dam the  waters and spill tbem'over tbe adjoining banks.  If the masonry structures were, replaced by suspension bridges or slngleTfl  trusses spanning the entire channel;?  from wall to wall, a' treat *tep would  be .'take*'^toward, the prevention of  future floods. But would Paris, the  beautiful, submit to the removal of so  [many monuments of her architectural  genius as are afforded by the present  succession of picturesque stone arch  bridges.

The easiest and simplest method is  the "cut exemption", and tax all property, that dues hot belong to the public.     y'-   '.',".'      ��������� ;'":'  The second method isin no way com?  plcx. It is this: Tax all property-  known as church property, except, the  land actually under the church building and the church building itself.  The first seems very, sinipie and  would be as simple as it seems, if til  interested parties were honest in their  representations. But' under the head  of the first plan we find there arc  hospitals which get financial aid from  c,ivie corporations, and so manage:-.is  to be rated public institutions in'uart.  And yet in their management an-J  ownership they ara absolutely private.  The time has come long since when nil  such corporations should come under  public inspection. Their financial  hooks, visitors-books, record - books,  and all pertaining to the work in hand,  actual and pretended, should be at all  times subject to public examination by  official inspectors.  When visitors who enter their names hi books kept, tor that purpose, find  that their names are sent in. as patients to swells the capitation... court,  then said visitors - books should be  officially examined, as well as the  books in which appear the names of  actual patients.  By defining public property as onlv  that which is. positively owned by the  civic corporation, then the whole  question is much simplified; Let nil  other property pay taxes and receive  no, rebate. If any institution tie found  worthy of aid from the public, and if  the public care to: pay an annual sum  to aid In worthy charitable enterprise,  then give the aid; but only on the  ground of public inspection of the entire institution, including books, roott-.s.  inmates and all connected .therewith.  Let all religious, hospital,'charitable  and other private bodie*. desiring public.aid, be placed on an equal standing  before the public, and in relation one  to another.

The spring poets"are beginning-., to  rave over the yellow jasmine, blooming in the snow, Ihe budding ol* green  things in the newly plowed, earth, the  glory of the sunshine and the odor of  roses and lilacs in the air; but after  all, wluit are these beauties compared  to the rustle ot* a silk petticoat, a love  of a blouse, or a dream of a new spring  bonnet!'The new-hats are such that  the average woman's soul will be riiov-  edmueh'as it was when she nrst go.  religion.  And a woman who has never Veert  stirred by eilher experience is as un-  Interesting as lingerie without lace ruffles, or a man who never had an evil  intentiou in the world. The first thins  that struck us about the new hats Jjjras  the tact that rats and puffs ruust go%  One.can wear-their hair dressed wltb-  out all the false braids being in evidence. You know false hair, such as  we have endured these many months  past, is like kissing some one when  your, wife is not around, fche7������:iime Is  in being found out. So I would advise you to- go- ������nd shed your rats and  big back puffs, and buy some modest  unsuspecting braids. The hats  aie' varied, but not exaggerated}  (lie turban beiug much sinauer anil'  more wearable on the ordinary woman;  Kibbons of beautifully shaded colors,  ilowe.s by tiie many do*e:is aud to*,  coarser struws make htappy combinations. The crowns are often of tiny  roses, vioiets or other small blossoms.  These.nower hats are not only very  practical, but artistic as well.��������� J Twill  probably hurt soinebody's "feelings,"  but I have not seen an artistic hat this  winter, and a lot of the women looked  pitifully comical in the creations forced  upon them. There is uo sense for a  milliner to sell an unbecoming bat this  spring, but the woman who does not  study herself at ail angles before deciding what she is to wear many times  is"vfery foolish? "Black and white are'  combintd to good advantage'.in some  of the target' shapes, oue black broad  brimmed affair being faced with white  straw aud topped with wide ribbon and  wings.*; It is bad form to wear birds���������  ������?ertaiu women do it���������but one need  not toi low them.  By the way,-..the new petticoats do  not rustle���������of course its like an apple  pie; without the cream, but fate does  not intend to make us too happy as we  go through this vale of sorrows. The  nicest petticoats are.made of very soft  silk or satin. The new jackets are  just as you want them ��������� short and  jaunty, or if the long coat is dear to  your heart, then a long coat it is. In  buying a tailored suit the material  should, be chosen with a view to its  wearing qualities, and a few extra dollars are welt spent in this detail. Too  cheap garments do not keep their  shape or color. The best houses will  show you only the well made garments, though they must carry all spits  as well. Theie is no economy from any  point of view in trying to make a tailored gown at home���������it will lack styie  ���������so if you intend having something  in this order this spring, make a round  of the shops and try one all ready  built.  The Easter brides will soon be here.  A charming gift for one would be  some sort of a negligee, made of  Swisses, muslins, the flowered silk or  handkerchief linen. These.may be embroidered as dainty as one likes, and  could not fail to please the most exacting.  Many of the new gowns will be made  with a waist and skirt separate���������aud  when finished these are tacked securely together, to be sure of no sad parting where union is desirable.  Some of the new handkerchiefs  match the costume m color.  NELL.  ;The meeting of the Manitoba and  Northwest grand lodge of the Independent Order of Good Templars, is  taking place in Winnipeg.

It is announced that the T.  Eaton  company has purchased a site in Win-1  Some Hint* Regarding the Treatment  Miss Jennie E. Stewart in writing to  the  Frameis'  Tribune  says:���������Do not  give hot water to your fowls in cold  weather:   it  will  warm  them  up  oi  course, but it is debilitating as long as  the fowls are out in the cold.    Take  the chill off and never allow them l.o  drink  ice water.    Rather change  the  water several times a day if it freezes  in th coops.   Give sfciui milk just warm  i or hot.    Warm the grain feed in cold  j weathev. but do not teed it hot. as many  I do; it is possible to get corn so hot as  jto-injure the crops of birds.   There is  'a great difference between food healed  i and  just a  little warmer  than  blood  j beat. ftS degrees and  frozen grain or  ice water, a matter of some (>0 or 70  degrees.    And it will be a .merit help  in   keeping  fowls  comfortable   during  the night.   Food at blood heal enn rcl  the body  of  no' heat,  neither  can  it  dverstimulate.    Many a  case of roup  and winter cold can %be traced to tlie  ! habit of feeding hot foods, especially.  J hot drink and mash.    The d-wi is induced to sweat front tho 'influence of  (ihe   warm  food^aitf"!   "hon   being in a  cold place takes co.d just as you would  i if you got up a sweat and sat or stoot".  : tihouf in the cold" afterwards.  j    Remember that   a   closd-up   poultry  ! houses  where a number of fowls are  j kept in cold weather will soon become  j damp, because the moisture thrown off  j in  breathing, having no means ol  es  ! cape, freezes on walls and ceiling. Ventilate thoroughly during the day and  every time the sun shines let it into  the poultry house to dry off the moisture.   On very cold, bitter windy nights  one ..may close up the windows rather  closely, if it is hot of. too long duration.  | but  every  fine  night  give abundance  of fresh air front one side only, opposite the wind.    Better a rather large  opening covered  with  a thickness of.  I open weave cloth than a small on*e al-  j lowing a strong draught to blow direct  I ly on the fowls; as a-rule'.the'smaller,  [and thinner the crack the keener the  ! draft."*;If your earth floors are damp,  'try covering them with dry coal ashes  ] front the stove or furnace.   It renders  the floors clean.and wholesome as well  jas dy.   Rats, mice, squirrels, pigeons,  j and other small animals may be trap-  1 ped or shot for winter meat for the;  J fowls.   All pigs, calves or other small [  [stock that die by accident on a farm I  j should  be saved up  for the  poultry, j  t>o not give them the entire carcass at]  once, but freeze it down; thawing out j.  but a small piece at a  time to give j  them.' .     7\ .  Keep   plenty   of  dry   litter   in   the  scratching shed.    Dampness and cold  feet   are  detrimental  to  egg  produc-  ! ing.    For, the same reason keep the  j hens out of the snow. It is not so much  j 'to stop laying when you turn them out !  ! into the snow as it is;.the co.d damp'  I feet.'    I have pbservedmany times that'  j hens would be laying quite well during j  j a cold spell while we kept them closely ;  I confined  in   the   shed   or   hoUse, 'but'-'  : when turned oat during a little warm I  j spell Io fargae about the barns in the  Lsnow   they  ceased  laying.    For some,  i time   we   could   not   understand   why,  jwith the warmer weather and increas-  ' 3d exercise, they should lay less. Some  ���������| .tried   to' persuade   us   it   was   eating  lsnow. but 1 could not bliev snow was  ; any...worse for them,than ice water or  | frozen   food   which   they   had   eaten  i often." 'Finally, after some close study  and observation. I decided it was the:  cold dampness under foot. . '     j  Eggs are. never so fertile or strong 1  ! in   germs   where hens  are  compelled  j io stand  aound on  cold  floors or al-  i lowd   to run  in   the snow.    There  is  j uothing so comfortable for the feet of  j :'owl as loose dry straw or chaff. Fork  jit over once iu a while and encourage  ! the fowl to scratch for most of their  *; ctrain   from   the  straw.     If   you   feed  ' re stables raw to poultry litis free'/tng.ii'  j weather*, give them only what ihey will  i t-at  up quickly;   do not  allow   fro/.:'  j vegetables to lie about.    A few crh���������-. ,"'  ��������� potato |>arings twice a day are usuatlj '  ! all they-will need, the ordinary amount!  i i  I furnished from the kitchen of a nioder* I.,  ��������� ate sized family being sufficient for a ' ajj  j large flock. In moderate .weathvr they  i will cat more of such green things. On-  ! ions, cabbage, beets, etc.. are welcome  " at. those times and should be provided.  Cooked vegetables provide a welcome  I change occasionally, but they are no  ���������������������������more valuable than raw feed, except  1 as a change.
