The result was \  disastrous to Canada, which then was about one* ,  third or one-quarter the area of the present time..'  And one of the most marked results of tho reci- 7  procity  period, aptfrt from lack of work, low   "  wages, and soup kitchens, was that of ANNEXA-fi    '   ,,!  TION.   I write this word in capitals to lay em-"   ,  phasis on a historic fact.   The young and middle  aged, strong vigorous Canadians, who could go 77'  to the States to find work, went in ever increasing. [ >'   ���������  numbers.   The aged, immature and the poverty'   v.  stricken were left behind to do what they could to    " '  hold their country from eternal ruin.  Had it not,t '"'  been for the few men of imperial, high, patriotic    ,  spirit, who'w.ould'not leave their country, Canad*   !     7'  would undoubtedly have' been politically united,:, ", ,  , or rather annexed to tbe States.     -   {' %7'<k7 J^ l  7 ,*  As it was, frotn the standpoint of .the brawny.^ :'  sinew and^enter^rise of Canadians, Canada wi������';%-*,.^,  virtually annexed"for her best meii-.were already "'Vi" -,  member* utthv RepubUtY aud bad ^  tiveiand".' Why did they gbV 'dimply because ^ .Cf  there was work in the factories and,mills of'the'" -  States, and little or none in much of Upper and  Lower Canada.  Men like Sir John A. Maedonald, Sir Charles  Tupper, Hon. Leonard Tilley, Hon. Peter White  and others of similar spirit were much alive in  those days.  After the Civil War in the 'States, it was the  fixed determination to annex Canada by force.  The tSates could not, because they dare not make  au open attempt, but they favored the Fenians,  who were Irish, Irish-Americans and Yankee soldiers free from the Civil War then ended. Had  these Fenians had any momentary success, then  they would have been baeked up by the whole ,  power of the Republic. However. Canada repelled the Scoundrels, and soon ended the war.  What did the Yankees do then?  Why, they simply cut off reciprocity w M to  force Canada to yield to a plan of international  economy tbat would have ended in annexation.  This was__their _private and openly avowed plan.  But the men of tfie Sir^John Macdmiald~type ~~^~^  would not take the bait of national death. They  set out with the N. P.. the Confederation of all the  parts of Canada, and the Transcontinental Railway. Into effect they put their plans. The result  was that factories, mills and industrial enterprise of all1 sorts began to show in Canada and  as the years have passed the Ynkees, with their  men, money and enterprise, have been rushing  Northward, until now they come in by many scores  of thousands every year. And they bring into the  Dominion millions of money to enrich our commonwealth, and no wonder our people are em- *  ployed, and are the most enterprising, happy, successful people on this round earth today.  And what now? Why the Yaokees see that  Canada has begun in a most positive way to an-  nex the best of Yankeedom. They have become  alarmed, aud, in haste, and in deep anxiety, called  in members of tbe Canadian Government to save  them from annexation to Canada. What then?  Why, Laurier, Fielding, Patterson et al. responded.  The Yankees got hold of our old men and mesmerized them, so that they have become willing to  once more enter into reciprocity���������so that ,igain the  States may do the annexation act. Shall we let  them sell our country, and again force our people  to go abroad for work? 1 think not. And uot if I  ean help in the matter. One Empire! One Flag.  One. King.

Owing to the Federal election campaign now on  this important lnatter is liable to be lost sight of.  It is essential that we choose reliable men and able  men for the position. Men who have had experi- ,  ence in educational matters and whose heart is in  the work. Too often we let the selection of men  for this important office go by default, which is a  serious mistake.

But the lighthouse keeper knew he was not mistaken. Here was a boat adrift, tor-  lorn, deserted. Its contour told him  that it was no local craft straying adventurously- from-island- to_ mainland^  Its unexpected presence, wafted thus  strangely from ocean wilds, the broken spar and tumbled canvas, betokened an accident, perchance a tragedy.  '   "Jim!" he cried.  His mate, engaged in shrouding the  gleaming lenses from the sun's rays,  came at the call. He was lame���������the  result of a wound received in the  Egyptian campaign; nevertheless, he  was quick on his feet.  "What do you make of that?"  The sailor required no more than a  gesture.

According  xo present indications    steamer   and  water created by the turning of the  derelict..  fenes was genuinely excited now.  ^y God!" he cried, "what Is It?"  "A shark!" yelled Jim. "I knew It.  I warned him. Eh, but he's game it  the cap'n."  "Why didn't you tell me?" roared  Jones. Under reversed conditions he  would have behaved exactly as Jim  did.  But it was no time for words. The,  men peered at the sudden' tragedy  with an intensity which left them  gasping for breath. More than two  hundred yards away in reality, the  magnifying-glasses brought this hor-  or so close that they could see���������they  almost thought they could . hear���������its  tensely dramatic action. The rapidly  moving black signal reached the small,  eddy caused by the man's disappearance. ' Instantly a great sinuous shining body rose half out of the water,  and a powerful tail struck the side of  the boat a resounding whack.  Jim's first expletive died in his  throat.  "He's done It!" Jones heard him  say. "He's ripped him. Oh, bully!  May the Lord grant there's only One."  For a single instant they saw the  dark'hair and face of the man above  the surface. The shark circled about  and rushed. Brand sank again, and;  again the giant man-eater writhed in  agonised contortions and the sea  showed masses of froth and dart;  blotches. The flutterlngs of the birds  became irregular and alarmed. Tbeir  wheeling flights partly obscured  events below. The gulls, screeching  their fright, or it might be interest,  kept close to the water, and the cormorants sailed in circles aloft.  '  Jones was pallid and streaming  with pei-sptration.  "I wouldn't have had it happen for  fifty quid," he groaned.  "I wouldn't ha' missed it tor a hundred," yelped Jim. "It's a fight to the  finish, an' the cap'n '11 win. There,  ain't another sea-lawyer on the job,  an' Brand knows how to handle this  one."  Their mate's head reappeared and  Jim relieved the tension by a mighty  shout:  "He'll swim/Wild now, Brand. Keep  out of'his track."  Sure enough, the ugly monster began to thrash- the water and career  around on the surface in frantic convulsions. The second stab of the  knife had reached a vital part. Brand,  who perhaps' had seen- a Malay diver-  handling his life-long enemy, coolly  struck out towards' the stern of the  .boat. The shark, churning the sea  into a white foam, whirled away in  biind pursuit of the death which was  rending him.

From  that elevated perch, one hundred and  thirty feet above bigh-water mark, he  could survey a vast area of sea. Excepting the approaching steamer���������  which would flit past a mile away to  the south���������and a few distant brown  specks which betokened a shoal ^of  Penzance fishing-smacks making the  best of the tide eastward���������there was  not a sail in sight.

He was j  far "too -sporting 7a. character to ob-|  tain the interference of authority, ind"!

Jim was about to chant his thanks  In other terms when his attention was  caught by Brand's curious actions.  In stepping across the after thwart  he stopped as though something had  stun ghim. His hesitation was mom<  entary. Pressing hit left hand to  mouth and nose, he passed rapidly  forward, stooped, caught a limp body  by tho belt which evex-y sailor wears,  and, with - a mighty effort, slung it  .into the sea, Ayhere it sank Instantly.  So the shark, like many a human  congener of higher intellect, had only  missed his opportunity by bein p. too  precipitate, whilst the cormorants and  .gulls, eyeing him ominously, did not  know what they had lost.  Then the nan returned to the sai'  ���������and peered ben'eatb. Neither of the  onlookers could distinguish anything  of special interest under the heavy  canvas sheet. Whatevtr^it was Brand  ���������apparently; resolved to leave it alone  ior the moment. ;  He shipped a pair of oars^ and, with  two vigorous sweeps, impelled the  derelict away from the charnel-house  atmosphere which evidently clung to  it.     - . . - '-       7. ��������� ���������������������������������������������"  7T-hen the shark engaged his attention. It was floating, belly upwards,  itswhite under-skin glistening in the  sunlight.

To Prevent Cheese getting mouldy,  wrap it in a cloth that has been dipped  in vinegar and wrung as dry as possible.   Keep in a cool place.  If a Cloth Is Stained with tea it  Bhould be taken off at once, and boiling water poured through it. This will  take the stain out completely.

A Good Way to whiten clothed  .which have become a bad color is to  put two or three slices of lemon in tho  copper with the clothes. The rind'  should be left on. They will make thd  clotheB much whiter, and will remove  all the 8tains,from pocket-handkeiv  chiefs, children's pinafores, etc.  If���������You Are at any time compelled,  to wear a shoe that pinches; it may bet  ot value to know" that a folded cloth  dipped in hot water and laid over tho  offending part will at oncejafford relief.

But, as previously stated, and as  Lord Avebury emphatically declares:  ���������'No trace (in this Early Stone Age)  has e'v^r been found of any animal as  small as man." fc>o many of the assumed finds fcave occurred in deposits  the period or disturbance of which is  not 'beyond question, tlrtt all ttlich alleged discoveries, even that in the  ctive of Dsffuthy in the Western Pjre-  nres, may'be dismisaeflihsipUre inventions, or flue to1 chicanery *n& fraud.

A Chicago policeman started out on  his beat the other day with instructions to kill every dog he found running at large. He had gone but a  short distance when a little yellow dog  came into view. The officer drew his  revolver and.'was'about to flre when  the homeless canine ran toward him  wagging his tail and playfully barking.  Down came the revolver with the remark, "I can't do it; it would seem  like shooting a child." He reported  .at noon to his superior who relieved  Lhim of his star.  "Give me anything else to do, captain," said the policeman, "and I'll  do n?y best, but I could not kill that  friendly little dog."  This -policeman should not belong  ���������out of a job as he: has a good heart.  The world is in need of such men.  : Sentiment is dying out as commercialism advances. The world is looking  for big, burly men, who have courage  ���������tout no heart.or sentiment. Menyvho  Irom lack of sentiment have driven  the passenger pigeon and the prairie  chicken out of existence, and who are  Ibappy when slaying birds in flight, will  Sook upon this policeman as a faint>  heart. But his refusal to kill a home-  3ess, friendless dog, marks him as a  ������nan worth liking and loving. He  might well say with the bard of Avon:  ��������� "I dare do all that becomes a man.  Who dares do more is none."  the crop-destroying insect! We shall  pay for this loss, sustained largely  through folly and ignorance; when we  buy our clothes. Grain, vegeta&le and  fruit culture in many localities is so  hampered by noxious insects that the  farmer "drags home the stingy harvest" discouraged and with good i-ause  for abandoning his occupation. Every  dollar's worth of damage which the  bird guards could have prevented must  come out of the pockets of the people.  Poison sprays and other artificial  means do hot successfully check the  damage done by insect pests. We must  look to the wild birds for substantial  relief.. They will not fail us, even if  we do more than simply let them live.  SOUTHERN  LUMBER  FLOODING   PRAIRIES  Bury, general  lines  of  C.

BIRDS AS MONEY SAVERS  The    destruction  "of    insect-eating  .birds should not    be    overlooked by  Ihose  attempting   to  explain  the  in-  ���������creased  cost  of  living.    Government  statistics show that our agriculture has  suffered to the extent of billions of dol-  ,lars through the ravages of insects.  The annual loss has increased steadily until it has reached a figure which  ; -the human mind cannot grasp.  '   In the cotton belt of the South the  boll weevil; which has increased with  such rapidity as to become a plagut,  took as its toll in one vear race than  $25,00������;000  worth  of a  product upon  .-which every man, woman and child is  dependent.

Cornwall, One., Aug. 30.���������-The' St.  Lawrence river is so low here that in  order to keep the water from the canal  up to the required level for navigation it was necessary to close off all  the water from local factories at noon  today.  Three, cotton factories, the paper  mills and all industries using electrical power "were obliged to close down.  The east wind has had considerable to  do with the lowering of the water, and  it is hoped that if the wind changes  the mills will be allowed to use water  and electrical power tomorrow.  The steamer Riverside, which went  ashore a week ago, is-still stuck fast,  and .although the water was raised to  the limit, several tugs failed to pull  her off.  Serious Condition at Ottawa.  Ottawa. Aug. 30.���������Unless the water  in the Ottawa river, which has been  going down at the rate of an inch a  day, soon rises, the greater, part of  J. R. Booth's plant will have to shut  down for lack of water power. Other  industries at the Chaudiere are handicapped, though as yet none have had  to close down."  A sensation was caused last Thursday at joint session of coast and mountain sawmill men in British Columbia,  when it was alleged that American  competitors have taken advantage of  the absence of duty on rough lumber  to sell thousands of carloads of dressed  lumber in the prairie markets, without  paying duty as required by Canadian  customs tariff. Custom officers, it was  alleged, overlook proper classification  of imported dressed lumber, and continue to winK at devious methods declared to be in vogue. A strong protest will be sent to Ottawa.  The meeting devoted nearly all day  to a consideration of the situation created 0by the competition of Pug-et  Sound and Idaho rivals in Western  Canada. The depression in the lumber trade south of the international  boundary has resulted in the invasion  of.the markets of the pra\rie provinces  and British Columbia at prices estimates to be flower than actual manufacturing costs. A strong committee was appointed. It will report to  a special meeting to be held next  month.  Figures prepared by experts showed  that during June and July exports from  the United States to the four provinces  totalled fortj^ million and thirty million  feet respectively. It was decided not  to increase prices, in the hope that  the Dominion authorities would find  means of giving some relief to the situation.  The lumber schedule in the tariff of  Canada is not affected by the proposed  reciprocity agreement.      Despite  the  competition of the American mill men,  the demand from the prairies for rough  lumber  shows   no   sign  of  decrease.  Consumption this year will  show,  it  was reported, an  increase of 20  per  icent over 1910.   Stocks are about nor-  jmal, those of the coast and mountain  j mills being 150,000,000 and 220,000,000  respectively.  A special committee charged with  the  task of  interviewing  George  J.  'shortage, was appointed.  I The meeting warmly applauded the  announcement by recognized authority  that next year's lumber requirements  of the prairies will likely show an  increase of 75 per cent, owing to'the  large influx of settlers.  NOTE.���������The prairies are.the legitimate market; of the British Columbia  lumberman and American mills only  dump surplus stocks, to keep up their  home market prices.���������Ed.

Against this the complainants point out that the strike is  only .of, a very recent date and of only  about ten days duration so that the  order could not have been placed un  til very recently to be affected by the  cause! II appears to the Indignant  protestants that tbe pipe was not ordered as early as it should have been  and that the Board of Works are now  protecting themselves for this, neglect by using labor disputes in Liverpool as an excuse. Mr. Mttllett does  not disclose the date when the order  for pipes' was given.

The vote on annexation is now so  near that presumably any further enlargement of the hall may be held  over until the new year, otherwise we  may see the new hall protruding right  and left with additions like a bunion  advertisement.  The South Hill football club had  their first work-out on Saturday at  3' p.m. on their grounds at the rear of  the Municipal Hall. A fair attendance  was present. The Secretary H. W.  Barritt, P. O.

Unlike their more fortunate neighbors, the Cedar Cottage Club have no  assistance from the Council at - present but they are now endeavoring to  remedy this as they hold that Ward  II possesses even stronger claims than  South Hill for assistance inasmuch as  it is more densly populated, more highly assessed and taxed and has no  municipal open space available, for  sports. Up to the present they have  had to rely upon the hospitality of the  City in permitting them to plan their  matches on the grounds at Clark's  Park.  tlHIM!*****************4   9*****>****9*9***9*>  !  i  t  ���������>  ���������v  ���������  ->  *���������  ���������3-  ���������3.  -������*  ->  ���������5-  z  I  Our Opinion on the  Range Question      j  We know we have your confidence and we have  made ourselves worthy of it by handling the very  best merchandise in our line.  *****  t  We are familiar with the good qualities of every  stove and range on the market.

Renewed complaints also are to  hand respecting want of light along  Agnes Road (or 22nd Avenue). From  Gartley Road to Knight Road there  is no light whatever although it is a  busy thoroughfare for tbe residents  to and from the car terminus at  Knight Road. Possibly onw that the  elections are approaching, the local  councillor may see to this convenience for the locality as already promised.  . The South Vancouver Board of  Trade has now definitely decided that  the Provincial Govt is to be approached regarding the Telephone system. It  a recent meeting it will be remembered it was decided to interview the  Railway Commission but it has since  transpired this is not the proper authority. It is proposed therefore, to  solve the difficulty by establishing a  government system and the usual  committee, Messrs. Appleby. Elliott  and' Harrison were appointed to interview the proper authorities. In  England, telephonte, and telegraph  systems are part of the Post. Office  system and to secure fair and equitable treatment doubtless matters here  will eventually resolve themselves into similar conditions.  Mrs. F. H. Robson bas gone to Chilliwack to Join Mr. Robson who is ticket agent at the B. C. E. R. oflice there.  They expect to make their permanent  home there. Miss Constance Robson  accompanied the family but has since  returned to town to take up her duties  as teacher at Hillcrest Public School;  South Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. Battison of Nanaimo,  B.

Miss Florence Battison of Collingwood East left last week for Ottawa  to resume her College course.  It is asserted that the new Municipal Hall now nearing competition  is not expected to be large enough to  provide accommodation for the municipal staff. The ratepayers assert that  this displays either an undue extension of the staff or else a lack of foresight on the part of the Council in  passing plans for an insfficlent building.  Tlie Annexation Association contend  that the Council are making numerous  and unnecessary appointments if they  anticipate (as they should on their  election platform) the early annexation by the City.  When the present Comptroller was  appointed recently at J200 per month  it was announced that his duty would  be to supervise the sitaff and be responsible for its efficiency. The Association point out, however, that the  Council still adhere to their former  policy of making their own appointments and in the majority of instances without advertising the vacancies.  This is in direct violation of the Ratepayers Association resolution that all  the ratepayers should have an equal  chance of application through positions being advertised. The Comptroller was supposed to advertise and select suitable candidates for recommendation to the Council instead of  A parlor meeting will be held in the  home of Rev.
