A friend  d her4 of the Canadian Government Annuities  leme, aud her feelings may be imagined when  i was informed that her $1,500 would yield her  the remainder of her life, no matter how long  might live, an income of $225.90 a year.  Kill information concerning this great scheme  fy be had on application to the Superintendent  Canadian Government Annuities, Ottawa. Post-  free.-���������"From Government Service."  H.H. Stevens  A ride over the Fraser Valley branch of the  B. C. E. Railway on the south side of the Fraser  River takes one through the municipalities of  Surrey, Langley, Matsqui, Sutnas and Chilliwack.  The construction work over this section cost the  electric company three and a half million dollars.  Great stretches the tourist passes over have been  \ but barely touched by the hand of man. but rapidly the monarchs of the forest are giving way to  modern civilization, for the axeman, the logger,  the lumberman, and shingle man are at,work all  along the line.  Cloverdale is one of the first towns one passes  through  after .leaving 7New Westminster.    It is y  the chief town of Surrey municipality, which has  75,000 acres of land and is very fertile.     .7  The Columbian Hotel at Cloverdale offers excellent accommodations    to   tourists,,   travelers,  homeseekers and investors.    It is conducted by  ^JVfr. 0nd Mrs. S. R. Conner, very genial host and  [(jhostess to sojourn with.'.' They spare no pains to  make the traveler feel at home, happy and contented.   Mr. Connor formerly operated as a log-  rig contractor for teri years.   He was born in   :  ritario. y- . '���������'���������;.'���������'.  EM. Carncross, & Co. are,the realty opera rors  nd general land dealers of the town of Clover-  ale. For sixteen years Mr. Carncross Officiated  s clerk and tax collector for the municipality.  Ie came to, British Columbia in 18S8. aud was  orn in New York. Investors will find this the  ght kind of a firm to d obusiness with. ' The  embers are bureaus of information on the county.  Cloverdale is supplied with ehoft-c steaks, juicy  asts and tender chops by J. Creelman, the blither. Mr. Creelman is an enterprising young fel-  ow to meet. He farmed for three years near the  ;own prior to launching out in this branch of  rade. He is a graduate of the Halifax Business'  vollege and was born in Nova Scotia.  A. D. Matheson, the "knight of the anvil" and  iveryman of the growing town of Cloverdale. is  cept limsy with the trade of the surrounding  ountry. He has operated in his line in the town  race   1894,   and   has   followed   the   business   since  883. '-He Vfas born iu Ontario.  ~~  Albert Augustson is the tonsorial artist and  nducts a pool room, cigars and confectionery  ore.   His place is the popular ice cream resort  f Cloverdale.  v Abbotsford, the next place of importance, has  sveral business houses and  is nicely emerging  jat of its swaddling village clothes.   The Abbots-  mi Hotel is ably conducted by Messrs. T. L.  'uttbn and J. R. Peckham, and is the leading  rst.class commercial house of the town.

Stevens as Their Stan<jard=3earer for  the Ensuing Election.  As a man Mr. Stevens is a clean, encrgetii,c7ydungniwn, blessed witli a filear  vision of men anddfairs. kite is not a crank pn^iiy line, nor a faddist in any way.  He is a Canadian out and Out.

'He was Ifor n in England, he has spent the  greater portion of his years in Canada, where all hiskinterestlies; he has also heen  at one time closely connected tvtth things AAjmeri^m^ and has travelled considerably in the Orient under circumstances andinajfosiion which has given him practical knowledge of our growing Asiatici Question.7%  With goodwill to the United States, he believers that our place in the British  Empire is beyond purchase, and if lost could not be regained. He is therefore  averse to any measure which could by any possibilityi impair that relationship.  He realises that with Asia awakening and arming with rapidity our shores  trill require defense, and that in whatever may prove the best way, the Dominion  must bear its share of the burden, not leaving the British taxpayer to bear it all,  knowing that to do so much longer is on their part impossible.  We are glad that Mr. Stevens is a man for whom all can vote���������and we believe  his support will be sufficient to carry him to the hedd of the polls.  Breaking the Bonds of Empire  Tt Ms escaped the eye of the general reader.that great changes have taken place  in Canada's .relationship to the mother land under Lauricr's regime. -  X. When the Liberals came to power a few regiments of Regular British troops  were, ivithout cost to the Dominion, stationed in Canada as a courteous sign of our  organic union with the Empire and as a demonstration that we with the home land  faced the world as a military unit. .A very practical and picturesque outward and  visible sign of our union with the niother land.  2. When the Liberals came:to:,power:'HaUfam4n-the East and' Esquimault on  the West were depots of the Imperial Navy where a force of Bluejackets manned  the forts, and the North Atlantic and .'North'''.'.pacific squadrons of the Imperial  Navy7'Shewed the Flag" aiid again demonstrated to the world that we'were a  unit for defence upon'the oceans and their coasts.  .--.:': Both these bandsi the La/urier governmmt has broken. The troops have departed, the navalI depots have been assumed by Canada and allowed to lapse entirely, or practically so. <  3. When the Laurier government came to power we held oar boundaries by  the strength of the Empire.    Now they are held in the name of the Dominion.  4. Since coming to power the Laurier government has claimed and received  '"fwCWixVda^fM^  5. At the Colonial conference during the past summer Prentier Laurier demanded the right to disassociate Canada from British treaties with other nations.  6. At the same conference Premier Laurier claimed for Canada the right to  REMAIN NEUTRAL IF BRITAIN GOES TO WAR.  7. By claiming to positive right for Canada to remain neutral if Britain becomes involved in war he certainly grants to Britain the right to remain neutral  in case Canada is attacked, for it is unthinkable that Canada should remain FREE  FROM PARTICIPATION IN THE EXPENSE OF AN IMPERIAL NAVY,  and also NEUTRAL IN CASE OF A BRITISH WAR,;and yet expect to obtain  protection or help from Britain  Now when the drift of all these steps'is weighed, what'does it.show on. the part  of Sir Wilfrid but a steady .purpose to break the Bonds of Em pire'between Canada and the mother land and her associate Anglo-Saxon nations.

Stevens, tlie Conservative candidate for this constituency, will open  his campaign in the Dominion Hall on Monday next. It is expected that there will  be several prominent speakers on the platform to support tlie candidate.  From that time on the fight will lie keen and interesting and both sides ivill  no doubt be busy with the meetings.  SOUTH VANCOUVER  Annexation versus Incorporation.  The subject of the annexation of South Vancouver to the City of Vancouver is again becoming  a live issue. With the renewed agitation most  naturally arises the question of incorporation.  Many, of the residents are urging that South  Vancouver would be better as a separate city  than as a part of Greater Vancouver. The arguments are largely based upon possible results,  rather than actual facts. For instance, it is claimed that if South Vancouver were to join the eity  the added strength in borrowing powers would  be used by the city to develope the older sections  and not to open up the new district. Another  contention is that, instead of developing the Fraser  River w������iter front, the effort would be concentrated on Burrard Inlet. Again the desire for  complete autonomy in local affairs is strong.  The reply to these contentions is that the interests of South Vancouver are identical with  those of the city- and in the natural development  of the district South Vancouver would-be absolutely protected as regards expenditure of public  funds. Then as t owater front development���������this  is a question of commerce aud industry, and the  suitability of locations and would adjust itself in  spite of sentiment. There is no ground for auy  ������ apprehension in this respect.  The desire on the part of some to retain complete control of local affairs is a signal mistake  and sure to result in retarding development.  The tendency of modern municipal government  is to extend the urban districts and concentrate  the administration, and the reasons for this are  many: It promotes a tendency ior systematic development on a large scale. This is illustrated by  the action recently taken to form a "Joint Sewerage Commission," and amalgamation of water  rights in this peninsula. It is most economical, for  the cost of administration of the whole district  under one head would be little greater than that  of each of the single units, and certainly much  more effective.  Then it would enable those in control to formulate schemes of extension and development on a  larger and more elaborate scale .than would be  practicable under separate administrations, witb  different policies.  Then again the interests of the two districts  are identical and must fit into each other, so it is  imperative there should be complete harmony,  not only in feelings and motives, but in execution.  Much valuable time is lost and needless discussion  entered into over trivial matters which if there  were only one administration could be disposed  of in a few moments.  The greatest argument in favor of annexation  is "Self-protection." The city is completely in  the hands of the B. C. Telephone and the B. C.  Electric, and if the public interests are to be conserved it is essential that the public be united in  resisting the encroachments of these two companies.  Already the B. C. Telephone Company are  charging exorbitant rates, and divided as we are  we sit powerless to remedy tlie injustice. Injustice  is a mild term to3 use���������it is positively criminal.  iTthatjtjs^possible. jorjsuch^_coinpuny to practically  rob the publie "out of thousands of dollars annually. It is nothing short of high-handed robbery  and an insolent imposiiion on the public.  The B. C. Electric have been holding up the  single fare and reduction of light rales question  until they were granted an extension of their  franchise in the city. As a district we have the  upper hand of the company NOW. Their franchise  expires in the city in the year 101!.. and they are  seeking its extension and arc using certain threats  and bribes to7 obtain it. They threaten not to  expend the money for developing if not granted,  and also hold a "big stick" over our h������ads in  a dual fare and exorbitant light rates. In short,  they would ask us to believe that the progress  of-the city would cease if their'franchise'-is not  extended. This is all proof of their anxiety and of  the value of their franchise. With the rapid advance being experienced in urban transportation,  we may well hesitate before placing our "necks  under the iron heel of this tyrant" for'another 25  years. 'In this, as in many other great problems,  we can do-much better united than divided, .Let.  -the public of both Vancouver, and-South Vancouver weigh the situation well before deciding at  this time to maintain a separate municipal organization. 7 -/  It., is.a ease of choosing between insignificant  local questions and problems of vital import _to  the city's future. Shall we'reinain apart and while  we squabble allow those' corporations to be the  potential rulers, or shall avc unite- and make ourselves the masters of the situation and place these  ���������.companies in the place they belong to as servants  of the publie Shall we. the citizens, rule, or shall  tliev dictate  SCHOOL TRUSTEE.  By the appointment, of Trustee Stewart to an  official position a vacancy lias been created in tlie  School Board, and an election is to be held on  .September 15.  It is expected that Mr. J. .T. .Dpug.in will be returned unopposed, as he is well known to the Vancouver electorate and has served several terms on  the School Board. It is highly desirable that a-  man of experience be obtained for this position,  and Mr. Dougan would fill the position well.  o liy-  THE WESTERN CALL  ������|HSHJllSltjlljwgl^K^|Hffi<|H^.������t;H3ilil^t������H|)JHgl<|lt*)<|lljt     <|>4H|l^^t<������'f^f^cS^<{>^cJ^c2>4^H{r^t<g^4)4  ItS-  HILLCREST P. 0.

The city of Vancouver  is making  great strides  in the   railway   world,  and promises to become one of the  ] leading terminals, not only of railways,  but shipping, in the whole world.  An American railway, the Chicago,  Milwaukee and Puget Sound Railway  Co., under the title of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway, have  designs on Vancouver and the great  Pacific trade, and propose before the  expiration of two years to have a  through connection between Moncton,  N.

The Elder Sothern's Story of How th������  Part   Was  Written.  The Theater Magazine tel's how th<  part of Lord Dundreary came to be  i-reated by Sothcru. the elder.  "There is not a single word or act.'  wrote E. A. Sot hern three years bfr  fore bis death, "in Lord Dundreary  that has not been suggested to me by  persons whom I "have known since 1  was five years of age."  This was written in 1878. when Lord  Dundreary had become better known  than most members of the Eugiisb nobility, when his whiskers had set tbe  fashion, his clothes bud been copied by  the.elect, his ulster (suggested by tbe  long frieze coat of an Irish pig driver*  had Introduced that comfortable garment to society, bia . remark*- were  household words, and everywhere this  unique creation of Sothern's mercurial  genius and nimble wit had become a  familiar and. in spite of bis apparently eiapty tnind. a beloved friend. If  Mr. Sothern's statement is to be accepted literally be must have met a  vast number of oddities in his time.  Tet at the beginning Lord Dundreary was a minor part, with just forty-  seven lines to speak, in a very poor  play. In 1858. as a stop gap. Laura  Keene put in reheur.nl "Our American  Cousin." bj Tor.- Taylor, a comedy  having as its central figure a Yankee  as Imagined by an Englishman of the  time, a grotesque caricature witbou*  merit The role of Dundreary, a conventional English fop. was given to Edward Askey Sothern, an English actor  of thirty-two. who bad been with Lester WaJlack for four seasons, acting  heavy parts and low comedy, making  his first success In 1857 as Duval to  Matilda Heron's Camille.  Dundreary was not at all to his liking, but permission to "gag" ad libitum made hitu willing to go on with It.  The role was practically rewritten, in  accordance with an idea Mr. Sothern  had bad In mind for years. Everything that was absurd and extravagant  was added, and changes and additions  were frequent Soon came the gait  that was nothing like human, the hesitating, earnest speech, the "magnificent sheene," the letter from his  ���������'bwother," the business of counting  his fingers, tbe twisted proverbs, tbe  thousand and one touches that went  to make up this absurd, half foolish,  entirely amusing figure, who possessed,  nevertheless, a certain measure of Intelligent shrewdness and whose wildest conversational shot; usually bit  some sort of mark, though not perhaps  tbe one he bad aimed at  The career of "Our American Cousin"  was long and honorable, and, although  Mr. Sothern appeared with succesaand  -Istlnction in other plays. It was as  Dundreary that his audiences wanted  him, and It is,In that role that bis  name' will be handed to posterity.  From 1858 to 1861 be played it In this  country, always to crowded houses. In  1861': be took it to London. For two  weeks the.company faced failure; then  came phenomenal success, a run of  over 400 nights. It was the. first of the  long runs iu that city.  4^^H^^&*<^^^^^������j4^^^->***** **************************  Willoughby's Cash Grocery  4������  4   ������  Cor. llth Ave. and St. Catherines St.  Pbone Fairmont 1321 ������������������  4   ���������  % FRESH GROCERIES, BUTTER, EGGS.

The cars  the of fifty-ton capacity, and are designed with steel under-frames and  standard trucks. The,t tank is double-  riveted and the pitch is admitted  through a dome opening in the top,  the cover being made without screw-  heads, so that''the parts may not become clogged. As the pitch will not  run out unless in a molten condition,  each car is fitted with a heating system, of which all the fittings are on  the outside of the car, so as to be of  easy access.

(From Our Own Correspondent.)  MONTREAL, Aug. 31���������The days  when a voter in the Province of Quebec could signify his party politics  by the use of one or two words have  slipped far, far back on the calender,  and the present.campaign has opened  here with the customary 'rouge" or  "bleu" explanation of the habitant's  '. political inclinations meaning naguht.  Instead, when a man in the back  parishes wants to tell you his sentiments it takes him a long time. Never  have the farm dwellers been so well  posted on the questions of the hour  as they are at the opening of this  campaign. Last election and the  election before a man said he was  rouge or bleu and let it go at that.  Ask him why and he invariably replied  with a shrug, "Sair pas'.' or "jes' because," or else "My father���������he rouge,  too."  Ask a back-country Frenchman today  what his politics are and he'll sit  down and argue with you for half a  day. He's educated and educated up  to the minute. One is for Laurier, but  against the navy, another for Laurier  but against reciprocity. He'll tell  you why 'and all about it. Some diversified forecasts have been made  as to how the results will tally up in  solid Quebec. One thing is certain.  Never, taking, it all in all, will a less  ignorant vote have been cast-  Admiral Togo Coming.  Admiral Togo, the distinguished  Japanese, will be the guest of the city  of Montreal iionday, August 21. His  Excellency will arrive from Buffalo  on Monday morning, and will be escorted to the Sailors' Institute, where  the Canadian Cluo will tender him a  luncheon, which promises to be unusually magnificent. Monday evening,  the 'distinguished foreigner will entrain for. Vancouver with his suite. He  will be accompanied to Montreal by  j Commander Taniguchi, and their sec-  iretaries and aides.  I The Imperial Consul-General of  ', Japan will come down from Ottawa to  meet the Admiral and the Consul Hon.  Nakaniura will speak at the luncheon.  Count Togo, however, will not make  a speech, as his knowledge of English,  though fair, makes him hesitate to  speak in public.  Reduced   Insurance   Rates.  Five years ago the fire underwriters  suddenly and very materially increased tneir rates on Montreal risks.. It  was contended that the heavy losses  from fire which were occurring at  that time were largely chargeable to  the inadequacy of the city's fire-fighting equipment and the inefficiency of  those who were in charge of it. There  was, naturally, much complaining, but  on the whole the city accepted the  -situation'at.4he-uiulenv_uters___es_timatei  and the city council began to discuss  ways and means for remedying it.  Until the advent of. the Board of  Control, but little practical improve^  ment was made in conditions, ?.l-  % \ though the tide of general discussion  % continued to occasionally disturb the  *y quiet  of  the  city  hall.    In  the  last  * \ nineteen months, however, two and a  '}'. 'half million dolars has been spent on  * new water conduits, more lire appara-  ������ tus and generally increasing the effi-  a ! ciency of the fire-fighting forces.  yj-7   But, so far, the insurance rate has  . i ^ianamwia^., ^^^a^m^^g^g^^^ > ,,,#.f| -������f .

Its most distinguishing characteristic, at least to the  popular eye, will be its great height,  for its crowning element, ball or lantern, or final, or whatever it may be  called, will stand exactly 775 feet  above street level.  At the site there is the characteristic deep bed of quicksand, and through  tliis the foundations are now being  carried down everywhere to solid  rock, which is about 110  feet below  Woolworth Building is designed in accordance with the Building Code of  this city, which allows 150 pounds per  square foot load on the first and basement floors and 75 pounds per square  foot on each orf the other floors.  When we remember that a uniform  wind pressureo f 30 pounds per square  loot over the whole surface of the  building has been provided for, it can  be understood that the stresses from  wind alone reach enormous figures.  The maximum direct compression  from wind pressure on one single col-  is transferred to the Centre of the caisson by means of heavy steel girders  acting as cantilevers. These girders  are very massive and stiff, being as  much as 2.inches in thickness in the  web, and having an average depth of  8 feet, with a maximum weight of 60  tons. " ,  From the 55th to the 50th floor, the  inclined members of the pyramid take  care of the wind stresses. From the  50th to the 47th floor, deep floor girders with solid gusset plates serve the  same purpose. From the 42nd to the  2Sth floor, the exterior wall columns  are braced against the wind by extra  deep wall girders, and by knee braces,  reaching well in to the centre of each  story. From the 28th floor to the  street, every panel between the outside  columns facing Broadway and the opposite face of tbe building is stiffened  by a full-depth web portal with heavy  flanges. Transversely to Broadway,  the bracing is by means of single.portals, reaching across the full width of  the tower. ,  There are in the building 60 main  columns of closed box section. The  maximum load on a single column  reaches the enormous figure of 4,750  tons, and this column measures at the  base, 2 feet 6 inches by 3 feet 8 inches,  the total cross section of metal being  650 square inches. The architect of  the building, Mr. Cass Gilbert, and his  consulting and designing engineer, Mr.  Gunvald Aus, are to be congratulated  on the design/The Scientific American has frequently suggested Tthat for,  good architectural effect it would be  advisable, in these tall buildings, to  accentuate the vertical lines at the  expense of the horizontal. -Mr. Gilbert  has done this to a marked degree, and  in his treatment of the tower he has  introduced those open-work pinnacles  or "towerettes," if we may coin a  word, which the medieval builders  used to such happy etfect in the tow  ers of their Gothic cathedrals.  The exterior walls are to be built  of granite up to the fifth floor, and  above that of terra cotta. The building will be served by 2G elevators, all  of which will be thoroughly fire-  proofed; also there will be four commodious fire-escape stairways7 widely  separated from one another/and each  built in a fire-proof sliaft7 The structural steel will have a coating of one  inch of cement mortar; their interior  spaces will be filled in solid with concrete or mortar, and the whole will be  inclosed in a shell of terra cotta 3  inches thick. There wil be no wood  whatever nor any inflammable substance in the building. Doors, windows and trim will be of pressed steel,  floors of mosaic, and exposed exterior  windows will be glazed with wire  clamps.���������Scientific American.

So-Called    Prehis  toric Man.  PART   I.  <ti  \t  tt  v  The story of Primitive Man deals  ���������with those ages about which history  is rather silent��������� or records only myths  and legends.  When Dr. Johnson    declared    that  "we can know no more of Primitive  Man than what the old writers have  tokl us,"  he  was unaware    that evidence was existent beneath the soil of  his  beloved  London;   and that even  while he spoke, a rudely chipped flint  weapon had been found, at the end  of the  17th century, associated with  an    elephant's    tooth,   "opposite    to  Black Mary's, near Graves Inn Lane,"  ln which street he had once lived, and  this relic was at that very time deposited-in the Sloane Museum.   A new  science has    since    been    born, the  Science  of  Man,  and    he no longer  stands alone, but is included in the  universal order;    but I  wish  at  the  very onset to make it quite clear, that  while Primitive Man had a very early  existence, Prehistoric TM an is a misnomer, born of ignorance and philosophic doubt  Primitive man has heen    revealed  from rude sepulchres and stone structures, limestone caverns    and  water  beds, and an enormous mass of relics  bears witness to his existence   when  the continent of Europe included what  we now call   the   British Isles, and  which was joined to Africa at more  than one point, and to America   and  Greenland.   Not only has inquiry into  his history been  carried    back into  periods with difficulty to be reckoned  by years, but he is no longer treated  as a being apart from other living  things.   We call the science of man  "Anthropology."    All life forms consist of one ot more cells, containing  the germ of life named "protoplasm";  the lowest life forms consisting of one  cell.   The Vertebrates, or back-boned  animals, stand at   the head    of the  many-celled, of which the Mammals,  or those that suckle their young, are  at the head, and the order of the Pri-  nia-tes stands at the beginning of the  list;   and as the skeleton of man and  ape���������though not to be confounded���������  are bone for bone identical, and the  skull of a man and that of a horse  have  exactly  the    same    number  of j  bones,-we can see plainly that the differences  between  their  several  anatomies are of degree, aud not of kind.  But man  is  neither  the  off-spring  nor the brother of apes;   but, in as  much as bone to bone he has no numerical superiority  to boast of, you  may put him down as a German cousin,    more "than    "once    removed."  Where, then, is the    missing    link?  There is no missing link, aud  there  I never has heen one!    The Pri-ma-tes  form the upper branches of the life-  tree,  whose  highest  branch  is  man.  This  topmost place is  his by  virtue  of  his   descent,  his    unique    bodily  1 structure, his  wholly    erect  posture,  and his organs of speech.    No other  Mammialian life  lays claim  to such;  It  is  true  that  we  sometimes  show  sympathy with    the  quadrupedal  instinct���������babies prefer crawling on all  fours to the upright posture, a  Chinese can row with his big toe, and we  1 all  prefer  sitting    to   standing,   and  when one is in danger of drowning he  tries to scramble to safety, thus revealing traits of his tree-dwelling ancestry.  Now, in our knowledge and belief in  the remote antiquity of man, is there  one argument to be found to shake  our confidence in the absolute truth  of the creation oLjnan "In the Image  of God?" For my part, my belief is  enormously strengthened by the discoveries of science.  Now for the place of Man in    the  earth's  time-history.    Broadly  speak-  i ing, there are two classes of rocks  composing  the  crust  of the  globe���������  unstratified, or fire-fused, which contain no fossils, and the stratified or  water-laid, which reveal    remains of  plants   and animals.    The   stratified  rocks are called Primary, Secondary,  Tertiary, Quaternary, and recent; and  not ttill  the  Tertiary   period  do  we  find proofs of the existence of mammals and leaf-bearing trees; seaweed;  ferns, pines, fishes and reptiles only,  being found in the' Primary0and Secondary Periods. That vast prehistoric  age is summed up in the opening  words of Scripture: "In the beginning God created the heaven and the  , earth," between which and the Ter-  ! tiary Period, including the Renewal or  j Resurrection of the Earth, as Man's  i Abode, myriads of time intervened.  j narrative" we--can gather that ris de  clension was at lrst gradual, but that  the seeds of indigenous  cereals and  numerous    herbivora,    rodents    and  clension was ax um grauum, -_>. .........    directly Murder stalked the land, and j game-birds, with fishes and molluscs  the evil instincts of man predomin-'- ���������������������������'- 4-1��������� -^,������������������������ ,���������^ sass sunnlied  ated, and the carnivorous animals be-  Now the Tertiary period    contains  three epochs,    the Eocene, or dawn, l  when  lemur-like  creatures  and  marsupial or pouched animals existed in  a very primitive state;   and also primitive mammals, the ancestors of our  modern  species,   began    to    appear,  then the Miocene epoch, in the strata  of which fossilized    anthropoid apes  have  been  found;    and    flint  flakes,  rashly  if not gladly  seized  upon  as  evidence of a rude attempt at manu-  ifacture by primitive man, have been  i unearthed, only to be disproved, and  - to be  declared  unfounded    evidence.  Then comes the third epoch, or Pliocene   more recent), and in these there  is even  less  so-called  evidence  than  ,in the    former    epoch.    But in this  period' came the separation    of    the  continents,  and   the   gradual  passing  from  tropical  to  the  glacial  periods,  the first of which probably began 240,-  000 years ago, while all came to an  end 80,000 years back.  came correspondingly more and more  savage, that this degredation proceeded  surely  and   swiftly..    Seeing  how  mixed are the reputed. genealogies in  the early chapters of Genesis, I.claim  I of that Enoch who was "translated,"  ' being "the seventh from Adam," that  his removal from the earth, gives the  time of the commencement of Man's  Degradation.   I seen analogous cases  of-falls from original grace in the case  of Nebuchadnezzar who lived the life  of an animal; and, alas, in the present   day   I  meet   so-called   men  and  women in name, but whom sin in all  ; its vilest aspects has reduced in facial  him with an abundance of varied food7  jJn   such   a  region  he  would- develop  skill as a  hunter, trapper, or fisher-  nian.iand later as a herdsman and cultivator."    Exactly,  you   will   observe,  what the Bible teaches us, and how  man gradually sunk from his fall to  a   degraded   specimen    of  humanity,  fighting for his life against ferocious  animals;   for  that    was  undoubtedly  his first stage of existence, when< it  seemed   an   open   question     whether  man or beast would prevail (as. Tennyson tells us was the state of affairs  before  the  arrival  of  Arthur7).    The  first  danger after  the  Fall   was  the  WILL ALCOHOL DISSOLVE SUGAR?  "Will  alcohol   dissolve  sugar?"

The  three,  some  say  l.������ur.  Glacial  periods, are included in what is called  the Pleistocene system, and this be-  ginis what is known in Anthropological Science as the Early Stone Age,  or  Mammoth  Period,  and  it  is ujst  previous to  this period  that 1 place  the Resurrection of the Earth by the  Creator of all.   I find from the revelations  of science,  which I. welcome  with open hands, that this period previous to the Glacial was a semi-tropical period, and I also find from Holy  Writ that this period was agreeable  to the existence of man "made in the  image of God," in a beautiful garden."  But the Fall of Man from what his  Creator intended^ necessitated a terrible fall in his social status, and that  thousands    and thousands    of years  would  elapse,  before he, could  ever  appear  clothed- in    that majesty  of  manhood, Which    should    make him  again the acknowledged superior over  all other mamals.  TFrom the Biblical  to what might have been the appearance  of   those   who   lived   a   life   of  bestial degradation,    after    man had  flouted his    Maker.      Our knowledge  from relics of man's  earliest known  rude  weapons   found    in   connection  with mammoth remains in the valley  of the Thames and elsewhere, dates  then from the lrst stage of the Glacial  or Ice Age.    It is a remarkable fact  that  no  fossil  remains  of  Primitive  Man have been found, only his rude  implements and weapons of defence;  which   to   my  mind   is   still   further  proof of the existence of a kind Father, who would not suffer man's disgrace to,be paraded before an inquis-  jitive and prying world, tfut Who has  permitted his rude belongs to be found  as evidence of his long punishment;  for the "bones discovered  in  a very  recent period are those of man recommencing  his   emancipation   from  the thraldom of Satan.  Science has failed to reveal where  man originated; Scripture alone gives  the clue.   Darwin, recognizing the im- gjrj  possibility of doing this, passes it over  very. briefly, merely speculating that  Africa  might have been his original  home;  but Huzley thinks that primitive man was everywhere.   The general opinions of science may be summed up as follows:    "It is probable  that he began his existence on the  open plains, or high plateau  of the  from history, poetry    and    legendary  lore, that in all semi-barbarian existences it was a continual struggle between -man  aud   beast    as    to   who  should gain  the mastery;  so we can  understand ��������� how  Nimrod, the impious  founder of Babel, or Babylon, should  be   specially   selected   for   praise   as  a mighty hunter.    Look, even in tbe  I present day, at the demoralizing ef-  [fect upon a whole Indian village that  the mere presence of a single man-  eating  tiger  will  effect.    That  drift  was eventually arrested, but, as has  been well remarked, "Nature has had  her revenge by burying the rebels in  oblivion,"   and   no  remains  of  primitive  man   in ������this  debased  condition  have ever been discovered, nor, rest  assurer, ever, will be found.  GEOLOGICAL CONGRESS.  The   International   Geological   Congress, which meets every three years,  has decided to hold its next session  at Toronto, July 1913, when it is expected that no fewer than 2,000 geologists will attend.

But  Napoleon 111.7 who for his own per"  fldious iuirposp.1 had b.v promises and  iiliuretiit'iiis induced Maximilian, then,  archduke of Austria, to accept the "restored'* throne of Montezuma, faithlessly abandoned tbe unfortunate  prince to his cruel fate aa soon as hs  realized his schemes to be impractica-  bleY    ,  Even at her arrival in Paris Carlot-  ta's mind was already iu such a high  state of irritation that it was. deemed  advisable to have General d'Almonte  at her side during the meeting with Napoleon, which took place In the empress' apartments at the Grand Hotel  de Paris.  > What. lends special Interest, to tbat  Interview is the fact that the empress,  crazed by desperation and fear for ber  husband's safety and by Napoleon's  unsympathetic attitude, hurled a curse  at the latter which In time was indeed  fulfilled to the very letter.      j  "The empress." says General d'Al-  tno'nte; -"pleaded, partly on her knees  and in ihe.most beseeching terms, with  the stony Frenchman to no avail. Then  it was that 1 witnessed the most harrowing and dramatic scene of m.v lif<>  Frantic with grief and excitement.

Supposing this noise to  be necessary in ordinary .hours (whicii  is doubtful), surely it is not needful to  make such a row at two or three in  the morning, when there is no traffic  about. All parts of South Vancouver  suffer similarly, but at Cedar Cottage  people say the noise is as good as  living next to a popular cemetery in  the old country. Cedar Cottage is to  use a fire bell one of these days, and  it would-be a bad job if the volunteer  brigade get too accustomed to bells  at night to distinguish which is urgent  and which a mere musical effort of  the B. C. 1_. R. to enliven the monotony  of our repose.  The Ladies' Association of the  Cedar Cottage Presbyterian Church  will serve meals in a tent at the Vancouver Exhibition, commencing on  Monday next. The ladies intend to  make meals and prices to suit every  one. Come and have a meal with  them.  The   "World"   stated   in   Monday's  paper that the ten minute car service  on  the    Victoria    and    Westminster.  Roads had commenced and that local  residents  duly appreciated    the    im-1  provemeht.   Up to the time of writing ;  the  old   twenty  minute  schedule  remains unaltered, and no such improvement exists.    The ten minute service  was announced for Monday,  but the  public cannot credit any more promises���������they have had some.   We must  "wait and see."    We are now told it  is to be next Monday.  The district VV. C. T. U'. will have a  tent at the Exhibition August 28th  to September 4th. A rest room will  be in the charge of Mrs. McLellan.  Luncheon will be served by a committee of ladies.

Anderson was ��������� working  on a ladder at a height of about 30'  feet and it is said that this resting on j  a live wire causeu it to burn away and I  fail.   Dr. Storrs was called and order- j  ed his immediate removal to the general hospital.  At the last council meeting, in addition to extensive orders for more  road work being given, certain other  items of interest were decided upon.  Councillor Burgers performed his  proposed motion re incorporation as  a city of South Vancouver, and the  general opinion is that no more will  be heard on that scheme.  The much needed equipment for the  new lire balls was ordered, also ten  thousand feet of galvanized iron pipe  for water, works.  Chief of Police Jackson submitted  a favorable report on the conduct of  the Gladstone Hotel, both from the  constable on that route and also as a  result of his own personal visits and  observation.  P. C. Mackenzie having resigned,  the chief recommended the appointment of John Hughes as nolice con-  Stable for the Hillcrest section in his  place, ana the appointment was confirmed, no reason being offered for not  advertising the vacancy as usual. The  other portions of the report from the  of the evening in recommending the  immediate annexation to the city as  a sure and certain remedy for the evils  mentioned. He moved a resolution  that immediate steps be taken towards  that end, and same was promptly  seconded. This aroused the ire of the  anti-annexation party and an amendment was moved by -Mr. Richardson  that the Provincial' Government be  asked to inquire . into the matter.  Reeve Pound interposed to suggest  that a committee be formed to take up  the question with the Railway Commission, and eventually this course  was adopted. The following committee were appointed to collect necessary  data and prepare the facts for presentation to the Railway Commission:  Messrs. Appleby, F. E. Elliott, Greenslade, Hodgson, Lamont and  Martin.  The South Hill Football Club have  been granted the use of the Hall  grounds for the coming season and  the council have also agreed to erect  a suitable dressing pavilion thereon.  The comptroller's present little temporary retreat would probably suffice  for this purpose if removed onto the  field. It will not be needed when the  new hall is completed, as it will be  very shortly.  The school trustees having recently  created a new office in their recently  appointed supervisor of schools, a letter was read at their recent meeting  from the superintendent of education.  As no comment was made by the  board, it may excite some public interest to give the letter in extenso.  The letter states: "I beg respectfully  to direct the attention of your board  to the fact that the School Act does  not provide for the appointment of any  such officer by the school trustees of  rural municipalities', and to state very  distinctly to your board that if such  *  * ���������      V  5  s  I 3652 MAIN  ST., Cor, nth Ave. |  I DRUGS, STATIONERY,  CAMERA SUPPLIES,  ' CIGARS^ TOBACCO  Prescriptions a Specialty by Registered Men  PHONE:   Fairmont   514  G.

A horse and rig for the fire chief was  also oruercu, so there will probably  be a vacancy for a driver and stableman.

OWEN  *  2337 Main Street  Phone Fairmont 447     I  ^Zr*****  Three proposals were made and occasioned considerable discussion.  One  was to approach the Provincial Government and ask them to create a government system similar to the prairie  provinces. Another was the immediate  j annexation to the city, and the last,  land   which "finally" commended   itself  for adoption, was to bring the matter  j before  the  Railway  Commission  and  j ask them to investigate conditions as  at present;, existing, and to force the  1 company to supply a better system.  i    Reeve Pound in the chair started the  discussion and gave a general outline"  of efforts made to attain a satisfactory  j arrangement.   -As an instance of the  j telephone company's rapidity of move-  ! ment,   he   mentioned   that   over   two  ; years  ago  the municipal council  applied to them to install telephones for  i the police officials in South Vancouver.  i Since then only one had been connect-  | ed, and at present the chief of police  'was not connected with the  system.  'The reeve drew attention to the ex-  \ orbitant rates charged by the company  j and the wearisome delays experienced  by  all   who   were  desirous  of  being  connected   to  the, city   and   outlying  parts:'    Numerous   speakers  followed,  detailing several instances of the company's lapses in attention to requests  for  connection, and also  discourtesy  with regard to suggestions for a better system. Mr, A. H. Lewis made probably the best and most logical speech  The death occurred on the 17th  inst. of Mrs. Mary Ann Jenkins, at the  residence of her daughter, Mrs. McLaughlin, corner of Wilson Road and  Fraser Avenue. The deceased was the  widow of tbe late John Jenkins, of  Frith Knoll, Rlstree, Essex, England.
