WHY ?  ftOV-.po  SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR  IN ADVANCE  Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME II  VANCOUVER, British Columbia,   NOV.  25,   1910.  No. 29  WHAT THE PUBLIC SAY  We have recently received many highly satisfactory comments  about this journal. Needless to say these ave very gratifying.iu view  of the frequent adverse criticism to which n newspaper is usually  subject.    We publish two of these without further comment:  "I have just read your paper and must say that I appreciate  the editorials'of Mi'. Stevens very much. He has tHie faculty of hitting the mark, and exhibits good judgment and sound common  sense. . -  "(Signed)        A. II. MOGRIDGE.  "Twenty-eighth Street, South Vancouver."  * * ������ *.  "The Western Call is, in my opinion, the best and most -thoroughly 'democratic, newspaper in Vancouver. The editor knows the  truth and-speaks it fearlessly. Would that we had more such papers  in our city. It is absolutely free from all impurity and commends  itself lo "very lover of .honor, freedom .and fair play.  , "E. II. ROBINSON.  "City Heights, South Vancouver." x  EDISON, THE INVENTOR.  In a recent number of the Electrical World, there is an article  on the patents of Thomas Edison.   His first patent was secured in  June, 1869, on an eleetro-graphic vote recorder.   Since then 905 pat-  1 ents have been issued to him, 713 of whieh pertain to electrical apparatus.   His greatest activity was in the years 1881 and 1882. when  he was concerned with the development of the incandescent lamp  and power machinery.   In 1882 he was granted 75 patents, and the  year before he secured 69 patents.   From 1890 to 1892 there was an-  i other period of activity, as shown by the number of his patents,  nvhieli was 65, 32. and 65, respectively, these being devoted mainly  to the .phonograph and to electric light and power machinery.   Considering all. the patents that are probably pending, patents that were  withdrawn, and patents not yet filed but in the course of preparation, it is estimated that the number of Edison's inventions is close  to 2,000.���������Scientific American.  COMMISSIONER CREHAN  Will Be Candidate for License Commission.  With one exception, that of Com. Edgett, the License Board of  [this year has been perhaps the most satisfactory one which Vaucou-  [ver has ever had.   The electors will therefore be pleased to know  ihat Com. Crehan has consented to again come forward as a candidate for the office. "His work during the past year has been characterized by impartiality and good judgment.   He is firm but fair,  iind treats all alike.   He has no axe to grind nor does he personally  irofit by his connection with the board.    We join with others in  lavishing him every success.  CONSERVATIVE CONVENTION.  ��������� The Conservative convention, recently held at Nelson, among  pther useful things, have memorialized the Provincial Government  psking that a bill be introduced compelling all telephone companies  An the province to give connection with other lines. If passed, this  fvvill be of great value in cases where competing companies may exist  jin different cities, towns or municipalities.  vV*''   '  ���������*������*���������*'"    GEO. E. WILUAMSON  i   Announced as Candidate for Alderman for Ward V.  [r Definite announcement has been made of the intention of Mr.  5eo. E. Williamson to enter the field as candidate for aldermanic  honors in Ward V.  Aid. Whitesides, who has served this ward for two years, is rehiring in favor of Mr. Williamson.   It is stated that Mr. Whitesides  Intends taking an extended tour next year wOiioh would make it  ipossible for him to continue as an alderman.  Q^o. $, Williamson is so well known throughout the city that  li'e' needs no introduction.   He has been a resident of the city for  liibwHlt twenty-three years, and has always taken a deep interest in  IKivic affairs, as well as being prominent in Federal and Provincial  politics.

"3K���������  MONETARY TIMES ON "COCOS ISLAND." V  \\ "Up to the time of going to press the good ship Mary Dier has  hot set sail for the Cocos Islands to recover money and jewels whieh  fell in the ocean seventy-five years ago. The story is that  fel5.O0O.O0O are now buried in boxes and pigskins, at present the  |port <������>������ the piscatorial inhabitants of the ocean.

No Answer Yet  ������         .���������  Commissioner Edgett Has No Reply.  We have not as yet received any direct public reply from Com.  Edgett to our questions. AVe have .another one to propound this  week which merits careful consideration.  Last year the Bodega and Boulder (saloons) Hotels had in connection with tfheir premises two restaurants, one facing on Carrall  street, the other facing on Cordova street, thus forming an "L,"  with one kitchen serving both places. This was directly contrary  to the law, as the restaurants were sub-let and at the same time  supposed to be the dining rooms of the hotels (.?).  About a year ago these restaurants assigned. Owing various merchants $3,600.00. These merchants supposed they were responsible  parties and part of the hotel premises, but imagine their surprise  when they were informed there was nothing tor them.  v They appealed to the Commissioners on January 12th. 1910, and  were informed that a resolution had been passed the previous year  to the effect that the Commissioners would not act as a collecting  agency. The Commissioners, however, appointed a valuator to value  the fixtures which were "absorbed" by the proprietors of the Bodega and the Boulder Hotels (?), who were requested to pay the  creditors pro rata.   The fixtures were valued at $600.00.  Our question is: AVHAT WAS; DONE WITH THIS $600.00?  The creditors got none���������at least some did not. One creditor lost  $1,300.00 and never got a cent.  Another question: DID COM. EDGETT GET HIS ACCOUNT  PAID ?  During the annual tour of inspection, June, 1909, the Commissioners visited a hotel in the extreme east end. "ONE" of the Commissioners remarked to the man in charge: "Your place is alright,  only you do not buy your groceries in the right place." Needless  to say that shortly after this a new hotel account was placed on the  books of Com. Edgett.  We wish to say that this is not illegal���������a Commissioner selling  goods to a licensee���������but is it advisable, Mr. Voter?  Another hotel, that used to stand not a mile away from the Bank  of Commerce on Hastings street, stated that they had to buy their  groceries from Com. Edgett because "he was a good man to stand in  with," and added: "This old shack should never have a license^  anyway."  That is the rub���������the lieense holders loolc on Edgett as a faithful  friend, a good man to have on the board; he looks after their interests.  Again we ask:   IS IT WISE?  j   Winnipeg.���������Martin, Bole & Wynne,  {the  largest  wholesale  manufacturing  Druggists of the West, were  burned  out  this  week.

An interesting return has been issued by the Commonwealth  ETreasurer in connection with the Invalid and Old Age Pensions  \_ct of 1908. This return shows that the total number of new claims  granted during the year of 1909-10 was 30,526, while the number of  Ipensious taken over by tlie Commonwealth from the States was  139,875, thus making a total of 70.401 claims admitted during the  [year. After deductions for deaths and cancellations, the number of  [pensions current at -June 30. 1910, was 65.492. The total expendi-  Iture on old age pensions during the financial year 1909-10 (not  I including cost of administration) was ������1.497,330.  Ottawa, Nov. 18.���������It is understood  that the estimates for the coming year  will contain a considerable appropriation for the construction of the Hudson's Bay railway.  C. P. R.  The Canadian Pacific Railway celebrated its silver jubilee recently. On November 7th, 188'5[, the Hon. Donald A. Smith, now  Lord Strathcoha, drove the last spike uniting the Atlantic and Pa;  cific divisions of Canada's first great trans-contiiiental railway. It  was the original intention of the Canadian Government to build ;tl\e  road themselves, arid Sir John A. Macdonald and some of his colleagues visited Europe to see if they could secure sufficient fund* to  finance the huge undertaking. But Canada was then unknown, and  the European finatfeers did not care to put their money into the new  project. Then Mr. George Stephen, now Lord Mountstephen, was  called upon, and somewhat reluctantly undertook the task of pushing  what was then Canada's greatest railway project to successful completion. How great a success the new road was to prove not even  its most enthusiastic promoter dreamed. As its completion, in 1885,  the railway operated 4,357 miles', to-day it .operates 15,225 miles.  Twenty-five' years ago the total earnings of the C. P. R. Company  were.$8,368,000 and the operating expenses $5,143,000, Last year  the total earnings (exclusive of the steamships') were $94,989j000 and  the operating expenses $61 JL49.000. In 1885 there were 2,859,000  passengers; inl90.9 there were 11,172,000. The freight traffic has ri*-  en from less than five million tons to more than twenty million tons.  Twrenty-five years a go the company did not own a ship,- now it has  no less than sixty-two vessels,ou the oceans and on the great lakes.  In 1885 there Svas one through train every day for six days in. the  week; now there are two. and in summer there are four trains every  day in the week. Twenty-five years ago it was thought' almost a  crazy scheme to build one transcontinental road across Canada; now  there are two others under construction, and the country is still calling for more railways. Canada has grown a little during the last  twenty-five years, and her growth has been marvellously helped by  the building of her first great railway.  VANCOUVER ATHLETIC CLUB.  We heartily commend the action of the Vancouver Athletic Club  in refusing to be drawn hit������ am alliance with the Commercial Club.  The Athletic Club is an institution of inestimable valne to the  city "if properly conducted,r' and we believe it has now entered upon  a new era of prosperity,, which will attract the support of the citizens  as never before.  "Clean, healthy amateur sport!' should be the slogan.  FXBE IN SCHOOL.  Fortunately the fire in the High School occurred before school  hours. It serves, however,, to demonstrate the wisdom of the Trustees  iii abandoning wood eonstructibh-altogetlier. :,Forthe past few, years  the schools are all being? constructed of fire-proof material.  The High School h> an older building and' certain parts were of  wooden construction, such as joists and rafters, etc. This has now  given way to more modern construction. The* automatic fire alarm  system worked well in this case aud proved its efficiency.  B. OP W. INSPECTION.  The Board of Wcxrks last Monday made ������ tour of inspection to  Kitsilano, they were careful not to go very far from the corner of  "York" and "-Vine," where the road is in very fair shape and consequently reported "That now there was little or no mud in Kitsilano." This sense of humor evidently got the better of them, or possibly they were trying to emulate the example of Admiral Nelson, who  when advised that a superior officer was signaling him to do something he did not wish 'to do, placed his telescope to his blind eye, and  said:   'I cannot see those signals, keep on your course/ "  NO SMOOTH EOAD FOR BECIPBOCTTY.  (Colliers.)  Belgium.���������Princess Clementina, cV  Belgium, was, on Monday, married y ^  Victor Napoleon, pretender to t/.ie  throne of Prance.

As a  practical ma ji Senator Mel vin-J ones ought to know what he does not.  want���������for Tnimself.   Sir George Ross takes a wider, more academic,  view, bu+���������' reaches  the  same  conclusion���������no  dickering with  the  Yankee.     Canada' is now the second best customer of the United  States.     Sir George forebodes the chance of its becoming the best  and ge'fting in return another near, dear market for the products of  the fa fm.   Take the flapdoodle out of his remarks and here are the  point n:      1. Mutual, tariff legislation is better than a reciprocity  treaty, because it leaves both countries freer, while at t*<.same time  it n rakes the question less the sport of party.   2. Great Britain will  sta rd better to her bargains with Canada, being one of tbe family���������  Co (dim's your friend, not Short.    3. Abolish the duty on wheat on  b������ ith sides of the line and Canadian wheat sinks its identity in Ameri-  <��������� -*ui elevators.   4. Canadian cheese will lose its reputation.   5. Canadian railways and seaports will be starved out.   (i. British capital  twill be scared off.    British capital, like any other capital, does not  recognize sentiment, but goes where the best interest is.    Canadian  cheese brings three cents a pound more in the American than in the  British market.    Great Britain is in train to protect the British farmer against everything colonial except wheat.    But why talk back  at all?   There is small danger of reciprocity going very far in Canada.    It would benefit,   the farmer   more, than   anybody   else. and.  though the farmer exported $120,000,000 worth last year, he is not  accounted hy the schedule-makers in the same class as the manufacturer, who sold four times as much.    Besides, the three transcontinental railways may be relied on to oppose it.   At a pinch they might  even threaten to build their branch lines norih and south.

The twentieth annual volume ot  "London Statistics," just published bj  the London County Council, gives a  most interesting insight into London  life. In 1902 the population of Greater  London was 6,705,770, and in 1909 7,-  429,740; this year the estimate is 7,-  537,196. Marriage statistics show that  the average Londoner marries five  years earlier than the bachelor Parisian or Berliner. Most London girls  marry at the age of twenty-one.  Thirty-two thousand school children  are taught to swim in a year, and  7,000,000 free meals are provided for  hungry little ones. The gross amount  insured against fire in London during  1908 was ������1,072,640,212. There are  991,383 houses, and the highest number of buildings to the acre is in Shore-  ditch, where the average is 21.5. In  1908 no fewer than 17,000 persons were  injured in street accidents within the  Metropolitan Police District, and 326  of these were killed outright.

The   Means   Adopted   for   Preserving  Them  from   Fire.  The greatest problem of Canadian  forestry to-day is the protection of the  forests from Are, and it is one that  the Forestry Branch of the Department pf the Intei ior is trying hard to  solve.  This protection has naturally been  more fully provided for on the forest  reserves than on the immense areas  of forest which are still unreserved.  On these reserves there is a force of  rangers, permanently employed, who  keep up the constant and careful patrol  of the beat assigned them. Like the  other fire rangers, these post up  notices (printed on a patented sort of  cloth, practically indestructible) cautioning against the setting of fire,  warn settlers in the neighborhood of  reserves against carelessness in setting fires to clear land, or for other'  purposes, and "keep tab" on campers  and sportsmen gt ing into the reserves  and impress on them the. need for  caution in the management of camp-  fires, matches, etc.  But in addition to this special meas-f  ures have been put in practice on the  reserves for the prevention of fires.,  In a word these measures comprise the  burning and ploughing of fire-guards,'  the making of roads, the supervision of  settlers in the making of their slashings and the disposition of the result  ing brush and the supervision of the:  spark-arresters placed in locomotives  which pass through the reserves. .  In the early spring, when the snow;  has gone from the open country but  while it is still lying in the forest, the  rangers burn the grass along the*  boundaries of the reserves, so as to  prevent fires from coming from outside  and getting into the reserves. A total  of ninety-one miles of such fire-guard  was made on various Dominion forest  reserves during 1909. The rangers  also supervise the burning by the  railways of grass and brush along their  rights-of-way.  Ploughed fire-guards are also made  where possible, not only along the  boundaries of the reserves but also  in the reserves themselves. In making  these guards a strip eight furrows'  wide is ploughed, and on the danger  side another strip, four furrows wide  and distant from the first strip four  rods, is ploughed. The strip between  the ploughed strips is disc-harrowed  in spring and fall. During last year  the Cypress Hills .reserve,.iii Alberta,  was surrounded by a guard of this  description, several miles of guard  being constructed. The railways have  also ploughed guards along their lines  where these cross the reserves.  As  opportunity   offers,   the  rangers  construct roads through the reserves.  j These are found of the greatest use-  | fulness in case a fire breaks out.   Not  only can men and supplies be conveyed  | to  the  various  parts  of the  reserve  [reached   by the  road   with  despatch,  | but  the  roads  themselves  will  often  ;stop  a  fire,  provided   it  has  not,  at^  tained  a large size.    Where the  fire  ;has  reached  large    proportions,    the  road  can be used  to  back-fire from.  Along the roads, too, the rangers can  more efficiently patrol the areas under  their charge.   Durirfg 1909 almost two  hundred miles of road were cut along  : the boundaries of the reserves, at an  ! averagecost for a road nine feet wide  | of $12.73.   Eleven miles of sixteen-foot  | roadway was  also made into the inferior of the Moose Mountain reserve  t in Saskatchewan, and 78 miles of road  ! cleared in the Porcupine reserve.  j    By  these  and  other  measures   the  management of the reserves is striving  | to, do away with the constant menace  of fife.   Further information on these  and other points may be obtained in  the annual report of the Superintendent  of  Forestry   (especially   in   the  ! report of the Inspector of Forest Reserves)  which fotms part of the annual report of the Department of the  Interior,  lately  issued.  |  Edgar Furniture Co.

What a beautiful tone that bell has!  is often hear. , There are few, however,  who know how a bell receives its joyful or solemn tones. > All bells after  being cast and finished must- go  through a process of tuning, same as  any other musical instrument before  they respond with a clear, true tone.  Every bell sounds 5 notes, which must  respond with a clear, true tone. Every  bell sounds five notes, which must  blend together in order to produce perfect harmony. The tuning of a bell  is done by means of shaving thin bits  from various parts of the metal. It  is as easy for an expert bell tuner to  put a bell in tune as it is for a piano  tuner to adjust his instrument to perfect chords. At first thought it would  seem that a heir would be ruined  should the tuner shave off too ^much  at the last tuning, or the fifth sound,  but such, is not the case. He would,  however be obliged to begin over, starting again with the first tone, and shaving ithe bell till It gave forth its harmonious sound at the fifth note.  WALDEN  MANUEL'S RETREAT.  Wood Norton, where King Manuel  is seeking shelter, and where the Duke  of Orleans has his home in exile, is  perhaps the only spot in the world  | where the ancient lily-spangled banner  of the Kings of France still waves.  Originally a shooting-box, the house  was bought in the early 'sixties by the  Duke of Aumale; although greatly enlarged and improved, it cannot, however, vie with the majority of the  ancient and beautiful homes of England. But what it lacks in appearance  it makes up in romance. There can  be but few mansions which can tel!  such tales of broken fortunes and  hoper deferred. Within its walls, too,  are enshrined all the hope of those  loyal to the ancient Bourbon dynasty.  To-morrow, for the first time in its  history will the threshold of Wood  Norton'be crossed by a King of England, for King George, accompanied  by his Consort, is to pay a private visit  to the fallen King.

Estimates Given CflR, 21st and WESTMINSTER AVE  In any properly-constituted prison  system it is essential that employment  of a useful, remunerative and instructive character should be available  for ihe prisoners. Nothing can be  more humiliating and ridiculous than  to provide work with no other object  than to kill time, possessing, perhaps,  a strain of punishment, but having  absolutely nothing else to commend  it. All such labor has been abolished  ! from our gaols, and this branch of the  general system has been re-organized.  Industry, at an occupation helpful to  the prisoner when he regains his  liberty, is as important as good conduct, and a prisoner's treatment is  therefore determined to a very great  extent by himself. An effective progressive grade system, rewards and  privileges for good conduct and industry, employment of a useful and remunerative character, supervised by  competent trade instructors, have  borne good results. This system keeps  every man fully employed, and is one  jof the best reformative influences that  ��������� could possibly be found.  i  A correspondent sends the following clipping, believing that it will  interest many of our readers as the  incident related actually occurred in  a Massachusetts court:  A driver had been brought before  the judge, charged with cruelty to  animals in that he had been driving  a galled mule. The prisoner had an  !expert witness in a. veterinarian, who  testified that, the sore on the mule's  back did not pain the animal in the  least.  The judge listened attentively to  the long technical opinion, and then  demanded to know where the mule  was. He was informed that it was  harnessed to a wagon on the street  in front of the court building. The  judge ordered that court be adjourned | %  for five minutes. i 'I'  He took his cane and proceeded to , %  the street. He approached the mule ! ������!*  and with the end of his cane touched I %  the sore spot on the animal's back. \%  The mule almost kicked the dashboard : ���������  off the wagon. Once again the judge , %  touched the sore with his cane, and I %  the frantic beast almost demolished'^  the wagon with Wa kicking. i ,--  The judge returned to the bench.  The prisoner was called before him.  "With all due respect tothe expert  testimony you have hid introduced  in your behalf to show that tbe sore  on the mule's back does not pain him  I will fine you $50," announced the  judge. "I asked the mule if the sore  hurt him, and he-said it did."  <i>-i><3>'J"j,4���������������,'H,'v:'l>'E'������:������2>">3->^;>'Si<*KtH:>-iHr,,;>,s,������,r,^,,TH:..  ������* f?H O. j,'J.

We must teach children by appealing to their inborn sense of justice,  and we must, above all, take care  never to outrage that sense in our  treatment of themselves. We must appeal to their love by telling them of  the love and self sacrifice of the animals, and we must also he ready to  live up to our own teaching and to respect the rights of the animals if we  would have our children respect them  too. We are not civilized so long as  we take pleasure in their sufferings,  and if in spite of ou/boasted civilization we allow our children to grow up  callous and indifferent to the feelings  of animals, we are only setting back  the hand of time and handicapping the  children for their future lives.  Nearly eighteen hundred years ago  Plutarch said "when we take our recreation, those who help in the fun  ought to share in it and be amused  as well," and yet thousands of us  have not realized the simple truth of  this, because we have not had the eyes  of our hearts opened, in spite of all  that mental education which has made  our childhood, too often, a time of misery! To quote again from the words  of John Bright, "Humanity to animals  is a great point. If I were a teacher  in a school 1 would make it a very important part of my business to impress  every boy and girl with the duty of  his or her being kind to animals." It  is with the teachers than that our hopes lie. They can lead their pupils to  become true nature lovers, to learn the  secrets of the fields and forests without robbing nests or catching moths,  buterflies or beetles. . The idea that  to be a student of nature you must go  about with nets, killing-bottles and  pins is, happily, becoming an exploded  one, thanks to the many and beautiful  on nature study. As has been well  said, "we need to get back to the natural element of studying tbe open  book of nature, and to instruct the  young to observe the free and living  animals and insects instead of brooding over stuffed corpses in a museum.  "Surely," said Thoreau, "the most important part of an animal is its anima,  its vital spirit, on which is based its  character, and all the particulars hy  which it most concerns us."  The Teacher, be he parent, master  or guardian, must perhaps dig deep  to find the heart of his pupil, but once  having discovered it, and made it respond to some kindly act or interesting  anecdote, he can go on, sure in the  knowledge that he has touched the desired chord. By letting the child know  of the wonders of nature around him  by giving him the good example of  such simple acts as feeding birds in  winter, or watering thirsty animals in  summer, and by giving him the little  duties  of  observing  and  being kind  to some particular wild animal or bird,  he will have started a habit which will  grow and flourish, till the pupil, by second nature, comes to respect the rights  of his animal neighbors and thereby  also respects those of his fellow humans. Give a child some idea of the  habits and characteristics of those  creatures which are chiefly at his mercy���������let him imagine It suffering if ill-  treated, let him know that it has an  individuality and understanding all its  own���������and that child will respond with  interested tenderness and a remembering sense of indebtedness which will  grow into a fixed habit.  So, starting by teaching kindness to  animals a whole new world of possible means of reform will open out and  the seed will be sown whereby the  pupil will become, that much-desired  person���������a good citizen���������respecting  others and respected by others. For,  to quote Richard Jefferies, "if you wish  your children to think deep things, to  know the holiestT etnbtions7 take" them  to the woods and hills, and give them  the freedom of the meadows."  The Canadian Pacific railway is engaged in a comprehensive scheme of  improving its line between Toronto  and Sudbury, which has now become  of great importance for thiou'gh traffic to the west. All the large wooden  trestles are to be eliniinated, and will  be replaced b.v concrete structures,  allowing passage for streams in the  bottoms, over which solid embank-  inents of clay will be constructed. In  other instances steel spans will be employed. Some idea of the character  of the work''.is fitly illustrated by tlie  ravine through which the Hiimber  river runs, which is 80 feet deep.  Mere the double arch of.concrete has  already been built, the top span measuring. 2S5 feet, more than 2.001)-cubic  .yards' of concieie : having been used  in the structure. It will also take about  140,000 cubic yards of clay to complete the embankment, and the company hopes to finish'this work during  the present year.

The company's; four mills have  a capacity of 14,500 barrels of flout  per day. while its meal mills can turn  out 2,500 barrels of corn and oatmeal  a day. The demand for the lattei  foodstuff is increasing so rapidly that  the capacity of the Winnipeg mill wag  doubled during the past year. Mr. F.  W.

T. P. AND THE CROPS.  Four long trains, loaded with 1910  wheat, recently left Winnipeg, via the  National Transcontinental railway to  Fort William, the first to be delivered  to the head of the lakes over its own  lines by the G. T. P. Henceforth, with  the exception of the five-mile gap at  Winnipeg, which is bridged by the  use of the C. N. R., the G. T. P. will  handle its own cars over its own lines  from Edmonton to Fort William. Tho  taking of this traffic over the National  Transcontinental line from Winnipeg  to Superior Junction and thence to the  lakes opens up a new outlet for western wheat. Last year the Grand Trunk  Pacific delivered to its connections at  Winipeg more than 8,000,000 bushels  of wheat. All this grain will now be  handled b.v the Grand Trunk Pacific and Grand Trunk, and it is expected that, notwithstanding the lighter yield, this year's tonnage over the  new route will exceed the amount  handled last year. As a matter of  fact, the dry season just passed did  not affect the northern section of the  wheat belt through which the Grand  Trunk Pacific passes, as severely as it  did the territory further south. In addition to the wheat business there is  a great deal of general merchandise  going into the new -settlements and  new towns.  Photos  For  GhrMmoo  Make the most pleasing of gifts.

All bones left from roasts, steaks and  the carcasses of poultry should be used  for stock once or twice a week. Crack  the bones, put them in the bottom of  a kettle, cut the meat into small bits,  or chop it, and put it on top of the  bones; cover with cold water in the  proportion of one quart of water to  half a pound of meat and its proportion  of bone. Bring quickly to the boiling  point and skim. An ordinary shin of  beef requires five quarts of water,  while the leg, from the hindquarters  being heavier, requires seven quarts.  Bring to boiling point, skim; then push  the kettle to the back of the stove  where it will simmer at ISO degrees  Fahrenheit for five hours.  To save fuel, make the stock on  ironing of baking days, or over the  simmering burner of a gas stove. To  have good,, clear soup the cooking  must be evenly done from beginning  to end.

A moman with a small boy approached the gateman, who lisped painfully,  and asked: "What time does the next  train leave for B. :���������?"  "Theven thitbty-theven," he replied;  and the woman and her young hopeful retreated to the waiting-room. She  soon emerged again, however and approached the gateman.  "Excuse me," she said, "but what  time did you say the next train left  for B ?"  The gateman breathed a deep sigh  and answered laboriously: "At theven  tbithty-theven."  Once more the child and his ma  withdrew and left the poor man in  peace. But he was not long to enjoy  this state of quiet felicity, for In a few  moments out she came again and put  tbe very same question. >  A look of exasperation/ came over  the man's face as he said: "You hath  lotht that train now, madam. I am  tho thorry. It letht at theven thitbty-  theven, and it ith the . latht that  thopth at B: :."  "Oh, don't let that trouble you," she  replie d with a sweetly patronizing  smile, "We really didn't want that  train, but my little boy does like to  hear you say seven fifty-seven."

Boundary road, the main artery from  the Fraser to Hastings townsite, is  fast being covered with houses. Mr.  David Coulter has put up a fine new  house, and another large house has  been built on the ground of the Surprise poultry farm.  According to a letter addressed to  the  News-Advertiser,    citizens    have  been shocked by the language heard  in some of the city streets and more  particularly in close proximity to the  depot of the British Columbia Electric  railway on    Hastings    street.     One  writer states that newsboys who sell  papers in that vicinity often use the  vilest language and he considers it a  disgrace that such conditions should  be allowed to exist.  The Laymen's Missionary Movement  will hold their annual rally in Wesley  Church, and in Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church, on Dec. 1st.

A new organ was installed in Cedar  Cottage Presbyterian Church last  week, and with its aid special music  was rendered at the services on Sunday last, which both surprised and delighted those present. Under the able  leadrship of Mr. K. H. Schuck, the  choir gave an excellent rendering of  the anthem, "Come Unto Me," and  "Nearer My God to Thee." The solo  "Heaven Is My Home," given by Mr.  Schuck, showed that gentleman to be  possessed of a voice of considerable  range and timbre. Miss Brown presided at the organ with her usual  ability.  Notwithstanding the very unfavor?  able weather on Tuesday afternon,  Nov. 22nd, quite a god number of the  W. C. T. U. ladies convened in the  Sunday School room of the Mt. Pleasant Churcyh and held a very interesting symposium on political equality. It  was suggestive, practical, quiet, orderly and extremely sensible in its views  and aims. Any critic might have gone  in and out in perfect safety.  Classes were not held Monday in  the Fairview High school on account of  a fire which broke out at 8:30 o'clock  in the morning. Owing to the fact that  it was thirty minutes before the opening hour of the school, none of the  pupils had arrived. The Are was discovered by Mr. Woods, instructor in  English, who turned in tbe alarm. The  cause is supposed to have been an  overheated stove. Very little damage  was done. .���������---    .      _-   ^        _     ���������  PICTURE TALK  by  MR.   R.   SPARLING  150  BEAUTIFUL  VIEWS.

A meeting of the South Vancouver  school trustees was held Monday night  at. Cedar Cottage school. There was  considerable discussion over the want  of accommodation. All agreed that  more room was wanted and to Messrs.  Cocroft and Draper was given the contract for a two-room school at Cedar  Cottage. This is badly needed, for at  present overflow classes are housed in  two stores. A report was received of  the evening schools' work. Some of  the classes are splendidly successful.  At Cedar Cottage, for instance, the  dressmaking class now numbers over  forty pupils. The classes for arithmetic, shorthand and bookkeeping have  also filled up well. The classes for  English are not so well attended and  the trustees desire to make it known  that English includes composition,  correspondence and commercial work.  They feel sure that when the usefulness of this class is made known it will  be well attended. Many details ln connection with the schools and the grants  for evening classes have to be carefully  gone into with the department of education and to facilitate matters Trustees Greenslade and Stevens went to  Victoria, Monday. They will be able  to report a great increase in the number of scholars and yery excellent  results from school work.
