 /       I  ^ij i9n  4'v  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  /'  ASCRIPTION $1 A YEAR,  IN ADVANCE k  VOLUME III  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, SEPTEMBER 29, 1911.  No. 21  MAJORITY FOR H. H.  STEVENS NOW 3,256  Delayed returns raise II. II. Stevens' majority  to the highwater mark of 3.256. Without any  question the honorable gentleman appreciates this  expression of confidence and will cherish it as  a sweet memory to tlie end of life, even though  many other and perhaps greater honors may he  placed upon his brow by a people that know how  to measure a man.  In his absence from this office we venture to  r thank all who by influence or of the ballot, helped  to eleet him to a seat in parliament by a majority  that speaks vol nines in terms that cannot be misunderstood. ' ^  Our personal knowledge^ of Mr. Stevens assures us that the confidence of the citizens of Vancouver is not misplaced. , We furthermore know  that he values every.evidence of kindness, good,-  will and appreciation, however-tor whenever  shown.  There is special value and significance in the  hearty support given him immediately following  his successful exposure of the fire department irregularities in "this city.   His election to Ottawa  vindicates his course not only in that particular  [but in others less" public-  It also demonstrates  that as alderman of the fifth ward for a second  term he has given full satisfaction to the city in  [^general an*! created n demand for continued service by him in larger fields, notwithstanding the  'awkward and vulgar mud flinging of some unsue-  I'cessful aspirants to public confidence and.attcn-  Ition. - v  This paper most heartily thatiks the electors '  [of Vancouver for the honor conferred upon its able  editor, who for two'yearsJias used our columns  Ito condemn wrong-doing in- places high.and low,  ,  land to commend right-doing in all. _.Yes, we say  f"Thank vou, Vancouver."  G. A. O.  1FEEIOHT ANP CABLE RATES.  COMMENTS ON IHE CMUM ELECTION  OF THE 2ISt OF SEPTEMBER, A. D. 1911  '* * y ������������������ ������������������ -       ��������� ���������   ��������� ��������� -   ������������������  By Professor JE. Odium, M. A.; B. Sc, 1710 Grant 5treet,  Vancouver, B.

Protest and  opposition to such a course Apparently stayed the  Advance, but a cable message this week states  }bat the shipping companies engaged in the Atlari-  lic trade have decided to increase freight rate?  Jen jW cent.   The change will likely be made on  Bctober 1st. and the reason given is the result  l>f the recent strike.  The steamship combine/as it is commonly call-  Id, has attracted attention in .Canada on more  nian one occasion. When the Canadian Northern  list spring inaugurated its Bristol-Montreal service,' unofficial "stories- were- heard-that the ,new-  Vne would fight the combine, and speculation was  lampant as to what wonld be the fate of the ������  lanadian Northern vessels when pitted against  Ipecially directed competition. Rumors were  |ettled when the Mackenzie-Mann ships joined  ie Conference.  Earlv this vear the North Atlantic Westbound  freight Conference proposed to increase material;  [k the transportation charges for' ocean freights  ���������  worn British to Canadian ports.   Tliis caused pro-  ests by the  Toronto and  Montreal  Boards of  Iracler by shippers, generally, while Montreal im-  lortcrs asked for  the  appointment  of  a  Royal  Tonimission to investigate the action'of the Con-  ^renee;   Mr. G. M. Bosworth, fourth viee-presi-  klnt'of the Canadian 'Pacific Railway,'at the time  late.d  in London that-ships.< lose/.money, on- they  lestbound trade cargoes.    Later, a large delega-  lon of Montreal importers waited upon the Dom-  Ivion   Government ������������������ respecting  the   proposed   in-   7  leased charges.    This energetic opposition  ap-  ^irently had effect.   But tlie steamship combine  powerful '.institution,' and one which govern-..  Lents are apparently not very willing to attack.  Ibis.time the increased rate seems likely to be en-  [rced by'the companies...  LArinore gratifying cable message informs us  fat, the report7of the Pacific Cable'Board states  lat negotiations for the establishment of a re-  liced rate for messages that are not urgent give  omise of a satisfactory outcome. The Post-  ���������aster-General; thinks the advantages of a reduc-  Bn are such as to make it highly desirable to  iopt it throughout the cable service of the Em-  Ire, and between British dominions and. external'  ites.-' He approached British and American ,-,  Ible'��������� companies, and after obtaining their ap-  loval had negotiated with foreign governments,  lere is now every prospect that within the next  kv months it will be possible for messages, other  tan cypher, .'to be sent at half the. existing Vates  [d charges, subject only to conditions that trans-  ission must7 await for a period not exceeding  lenty-four hours.  We are truly thankful to Almighty God because -  He inspired Canadians with a spirit of loyalty to  country and empire, rather than to political party  and bargain-making., "He who keeps, Israel -  neither slumbers nor sleepsi.'' No weapon formed  against His people Israel, the Ten Tribed Housed  can ever prosper. Enemies in Europe, Italy and  the United States as *yell as in Canada, strive to  hurt us and our empire, but failed.  We thank President Taft, Champ Clarke, Congressman McCaJl, Congressman' Prince, President  Schurman, Professor Star Jordan and many other  prominent men in the States for their.outspoken  revealment of tlieir purposes in laboring so earnestly for Reciprocity. They spoke on behalf of  the United States, and told us that they were  after Annexation, and the weakening the bonds of  empire. WTe thank them for their blunt frankness.  We thank the Irish 'Nationalists aud the Little  Englanders for showing how devotedly they gave  their influence to aid the United States in their  avowed attempt.  We thank the Kaiser of Germany, the Emperor  of Austria, who is'the Kaiser's abject tool in. international politics; and our thanks are due to the  "National Zeitung" and kindred papers which rejoiced' in the prospects of Canadian aberration  froni the highway of national independence within the ^British empire. While returning thanks,  we might inform, these people that no men on  earth read the world news as widely and generally as do Canadians. We^read and watch the  outside enemies of our country and ^company of  nations,".proud and happy to be ruled under one  .flag and, one king; owning as our highest Sov-,  erign the Lord of Hosts and King of Kings.  - WTe thank Premier Laurier, his ministers Fielding. Paterson and the others who tried to force  Reciprocity on tis, and who gave ns their best arguments in its fa vol*, and who did us the service"  of flooding the' country with cheap literature.  In this-way they forced us to read, think, compare and look at all sides of the questions involved. We failed not in our duty. We took advantage of the opportunities so freely offered, and  rendered our verdict on behalf of Canadian independence of foreign interference, and Have drawn  nearer to the empire. Hence we; thank these men  for teaching us so much, in a period of time so  short. ' , ���������,''::���������,' 7'7-. '*���������������������������";  We thank the Vancouver World, the Toronto  Globe, and similar papers for their urgent putting  of their cause, and for their fireworks of eloquence, so lavishly expended on ��������� an/attempt to 7  draw us away from the folds of our glorious and 7  revered Union Jack aud to-enwrap ns in the folds  of "Old Glory." 7  They poked fun'at us for waving our flag, but  forgot not to wave theirs very vigorously. 7 We  have no-objection to--Old Glory--=being-waved���������  in the States, and even in Canada in a fitting way  and on suitable occasions. But when it is attempted to wave it above the Union Jack in Canada,  down goes "Old Glory." and those who wave-it  out of place. As to the Toronto Globe, it was "  once a strong loyal paper, but that was'when'the-"  noble statesman, the Hon. George Brown, had it  in control. In the hands of the present editor,  Macdouald. it is as false to Canada and ttre empire as it was iii 'the... hands of the traitor Ned  Parrar. 7 Its. present editor is the vainest newspaper man in Canada,'and is an ai*dent Yankee in  heart. If any man in or out of Canada worships  himself, it is Editor Macdouald. lie imagines his  loud talk, and the much praise given him from the  Southland are of genuine value. Those of the  States in high places, who have tapped him on the  back, and led him by the nose, laugh at him today  as a weakling. No people on earth have more respect for a true patriot than the Yankees have.  They despise traitors, though they use them in  their service.  We.thank the "Ne Temere" admirers and tlieir  abettQrs.y-They too have stirred our people of  Canada t<) the depths. Ontario and Quebec have  .determined to rid .themselves of foreign inter-  ��������� meddling, both in the home and state. These men  have ...shown Canadians what the insolent interference of foreigners means to our homes, people  and empire. Let them heed our voice as we thank  them-for their strenuous labors amongst us of  lateyVy >7    ;' - ;  Now we; truly thank another set of men who  have labored-most devotedly to save Canada,"and  to draw us from the parting of the ways, and  more closely within the fold of our glorious empire.   We are a ''nation and a company of na-  .tions," as was foretold by our father Jacob nearly  400 years before our ancestors left Egyptian bonti-  a^c. 7" "  ������������e truly thank Hon.7R, L. Borden, the Hon.  George Foster, the Hon. Clifford Sifton, the Hon,  Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, his splendid father,  the Hon. Sir Charles; the grand old man, Lord  "Strathcona.'Sir Van Home, ancl the many other  strong and loyal men of the East. And we thank  our own able, clear-headed men in British Columbia, such as the Hon. Premier Richard McBride  . and Attorney General Bowser, both of whom gave  grand and effective service in our eause all over  Canada. -' -.  And, lastly,'we thank with all our hearts our  Liberal loyalists who with a grander/visiou of n������-  tioual and empire life, than the majority of their  party, felt forced to step out of the ranks, and  come to the help of their country in its time of  need. Those men are amongst' the .grandest, noblest and wisest men of all time. Theirs was an  act of true patriotic heroism. Because they were  greater than party, they arose to the occasion and  proved to the world that no consideration of bargaining for money or the goodwill of any Jand, is  strong enough to draw them from tlie sublimest  purposes of regal-minded Britons. We thank and  honor such men, and feel as if the Liberals are  bound to come out strong in the near future, ll  so, they must follow-the spirit and lead of those  who broke away from a most traitorous pact,  traitorous in its effect, traitorous in its intent so  far as some of its supporters in Canada Were concerned, and traitorous by, many professing to^be  amongst our most devoted patriots. However I  do not for a moment, nor at any time did I imagine, that the rank and file of the Liberal party  are traitorous, or less devoted to Canada and the  empire "than'the Conservatives'are. Most British--  born Canadians who supported Laurier in the  election believed they were doing their duty to  lting and country. And they also believed they  would win. But both, beliefs were founded on  sand. The best of our Liberal friends are taking  the result sanely and philosophically. In this they  are like President Taft. He is big enough to. admit that this is the mistake of his political life.  He frankly acknowledges his error, and advises  his people to go ahead with business "at the old  stand." r  '  IjJyJ the .ipsolent. unprincipled Hearst, the most  corfgbt' newspaper man on the continent, an: un-.  seHifHtlrtus'dcinagogiie. still is -insistent on insulting'Canadians by impertinently saying they will  soon be sorry for, the result of the election. .Let  him know that loyal Canadians slapped his face  Sept. 21st. 1.911.' for his interfering insolence.   I'  have watched Hearst for twenty-five years, ana  pronounce him a: most heartless, selfish and dishonest public mam-7 He -is not an American at  he'art:;fHe is a traitor to his country, being an  abject servile tool: of his Italian master.    Let him  /beware!. His own7people.will turn upon him and  rend him.   His money wilt not save him.'' President Taft woiild do wisely to cut out Hearst,  Clark<vand Prince of Illinois, who indolently tells  the Northland people that "when .the Americans  want'������ country' they take it."   No, they do hot.  They tried for years to take Canada.   From 1S12  to 1814 they did their best.'   When the treaty was  made by which peace was secured, the only Yankees in Canada rwere those in Can.idian prisons or  buried, in good British soil.   On the other hand.  Xianada had possession of. the States7o4Jfai|^:an<:L;  Michigan.   Yes, let Prince and Hearst try to take  Canada.    They will nofbe fighting against *the  Philippinos  with  bare  legs  and   wooden   guns.  They took Cuba, a mighty act: and conquered the  rotten ships,of decayed Spain.    Ever -since then  they have been trying to.scare Japan; but are the .  most.scared people on earth today.dest the "Ln-  tle Brown Men" of the Mikado's empire annex  the Sandwich Islands, the -Philippines and all the  outlying possessions of the States, including Alaska, unless Canada would  intervene with the  Rainbow  to  draw  this  Northwestern   peninsula  within, the folds of the Union Jack.  What could Hearst, Clarke, and Prince do on  *t he-ocean without a mercantile fleet?   Why, they  would be as helpless "as a painted ship upon a  painted ocean/'.' <  Seriously, let the United States close the mouths  of such noisy demagogue's as.Hearst and PHjice.  and they will have more respect from the rest of  the workK  By our votes on Sept. 21st, Canadians; put a line  of Union Jacks along the boundary from the Atlantic to ��������� the. Pacific. Let Unistatia do likewise  with "Old Glory," and we shall extend tho. glad,  right hand of��������� goodwill:and. fellowship. We admire, respect and honor our great, big-hearted  cousins to the south. We believe the time will  yet come, after all the parts of the British empire are drawn closer together, and rightly related, part to part, and each to the whole; when  the United States will enter on equal terms into a  ���������confederation with the "nation and company of  nations" spoken of, and foretold by Holy 7Writ.  That will be a glad day. We are brethren from  the days of our rule in Palestine, and though scattered then, arid somewhat separated now^ the fixture holds for the two great peoples of Britain  and ihe States a glorious union far superior to,  and sublime beyond the conception of the clearest minded seers of the present day. lit my words,;  I aim not to hurt any in Canada or elsewhere, but  try to speak for millions of Canadians and other  Britishers. And I have accomplished that which  I have put my hand to. Those whom I have chastised, have received their thumps in good spirit,  if. the spirit of true manhood be within their  breasts. If not. then it matters little if they feel  sore over their punishment. It is all for the good  of the cause.  AVERAGE CONDITION OF  CANADIAN FIELD CROPS  Official Bulletin Shows Position at End of August  ���������Estimates of Production.  A bulletin on the field crops of Canada gives  their average condition at the end of August, together with estimates of the production of spring  wheat, oats and barley at that time. The per cent'  condition of wheat is given as 86.80, of oats 84.44,  and of barley 84.73, which is about five to seven  per cent, higher than last year and nearly the  same as two years ago. The other crops range in  condition from 80 to 86 per cent, and are generally  somewhat lower than in 1909 and 1910. The rains  of August hindered the ripening of grain and .  some injury was caused by hail storms/ low tem-  < perature and rust. Towards the end of the month  frost prevailed in many sections of the Northwest  provinces, the full extent of which could not be  determined at the date of the reports, but in the  case of wheat, oats and barley production was  lowered by probably 12 per cent., which has been  followed in  the table.    In  the older provinces  I the grain ripened earlier and little damage was���������  sustained excepting from drouth in some localities,  and the reported condition was 75 or over.  , Yield of Spring Whe&.  The average yiel<| of spring wheat is estimated  at 19.14 bushels per acre for^the Dominion, which  is seven bushels more than last year, and the total  yield at 186,928,000 bushels.   The fall wheat was  reported last month at 17,706,000 bushels, being     '  grown almost wholly in Ontario and Alberta.  The   -f  total wheat yield of the country is therefore estimated to be 204,634,000 bushels or 81,849,000  bushels more than last year at the same tlate*. 7 r  The average per acre is 19.50 ^ushels, or 6.30 '   '  bushels per acre more than last year.  For the Dominion the yield of oats is given as   ,  568,153,000 bushels, whieh is 84.9060,00 bushels -Y  more than last year's estimate at the same date,'?   *  and the average-at 35.81 bushels per acre, being   "/-  more than last year by 7.10 bushels.   The average  for barley is also higher than last year by 7.31  bushels: and the total yield is estimated at 51,-   -  559,000 bushels as against 3.9.388.000 bushels for  last year.  In the Western Provinces.  The estimated yield of spring wheat for Manitoba, SaskatcheAvan and.

No wonder these girls thought there  was no other man in the world like  "dad." Their delightful home was  idyllic in its happiness: their, only  sorrow that Brand ihould be away,  two .months out of7 three on account  of the pursuit in which he pass-id his  hours of leisure during recent years.  Neither dared to look, at the other.  They could not trust themselves e\en  ���������to.-speak. There was relief in action, for thought was torture.  The docile Daisy -steadily forged  through the waves. The spasmodic  :Iang of1 the bell came more clearly  each minute. Pollard, kneeling in the  bows, peered Into vthe gloom of the  swirling snow. He listened eagerly  :o the bell. With right hand or left  he motioned to Constance to bring the  boat's head nearer to the wind or permit the sail" to fill out a little more.  Enid,   ready   to   cast   the   canvas  oose at the first hint pf danger, consulted her watch frequently.   At last  she cried:  "Twenty minutes, Ben."  What a relief it was to hear her own  oice.   The tension was becoming unbearable.  "Right y' are, missy. No need to  alack off: yet. 'Tes clearin' a bit.  We'm heave to alongside the rock in  less'n  no  time.'  The fisherman was right. His trained senses perceived a distinct duiimv-  tibn in the volume of snow. Soon  they could see fifty, a hundred, two  hundred yards ahead. On���������the starboard quarter liisy caught a confused  rushing noise, like the subdued murmur ot a mini ace. The tide had l-ov  ered. the rock.  ���������'Liiff et is!" roared Ben, suddenly.  "Steady now."  Out of the blurred vista a ghostly  column *ose in front. Smooth and  sheer were its granite walls, with  dark little casements showing black  in the weird light. The boat rushed  past the Trinity mooring-buoy. She  held on until they heard the sea breaking'.  "Lower av/ay!"- cried Ben, and tbe  yard fell with a sharp rattle that  showed how thoroughly Enid had  laid 7to heart Pollard's tuition.  Constance brought the Daisy round  in a wide curve, and ben got out the  oars to keep her from being dashed  against the reef.  Enid's eyes were turned towardB  the gallery beneath the lantern.  "Lighthouse ahoy!" she screamed,  in a voice^ high-pitched with emotion.  There was uo answering, clang of  the door leading from the room.on a  level with the balcony. Not often had  the girls visited the rock, but they  knew that this was the first sign they  might expect of their arrival being  noted if there were no watchers pacing the  "promenade."  "Help us, Ben," cried Constanca, and  I their united snouts might be heard a  i mile away-'in the prevailing stillness.  \X windovv half way up the tower was  opened. A man's head and shoulders  'j appeared.  ��������� t was" Stephen Brand.  "Thank God!" murmured Constance.  Enid, on whose sensitive soul the  storm, the signal, the hissing rush of  the beat through the waves had cast  a spell of indefinite horror, bit her  lip to restrain her tears.  Brand gave a glance of amazement  at" the thrae up.ittcd -laces Bui .this  was no time for surprise or question.  "I am' coming down."   he   shouted.  "Providence must have sent   you   at  this moment." '    >  He vanished.  "What can it be?" said Constance,  outwardly calm now in the assurance  that,lier father was siii'c.  "Must ha' bin a" accident," said Ben..  ."That signal means/Bring a doctor.'  i An' there, ain't a blessed tug.in harbor, nor won't be till the tide makes."  "That will mean delay," cried Enid.  "Five "or six hours at least, missy."  The main door at the head of the  iron  ladder clamped  to    the    stones  swung   tack,  and   Brand  leaned  out.  He    had    no greeting for them, nor  words of astonishment.  "When will the tug reach here,  Ben?" he asked.     " .-'  The  fisherman   told  him  the  opinion he had tormed. ������  /   "Then you giris must ccme and help  me.    Jacksor. sca'.ded  his hands and  ! arms  in the --kitchen, and  Bates  was  i hurrying tb the store-room lor oil and  whitening-'when-'he   slipped  on    the  stairs and  broke his  leg.    We must  get them both ashore.    Ben, you can  take them?"  "Ay. ay, sir."  "Now. Constance, you first. - Hold  tight and stand in the skip. Your heat  cannot come near the  rock."  tee. swung-the derrick into place and  began to Work the windlass. Constance, cpcl as her father, whispered  to..the excited Enid':  ...   ��������� .  "Let us divide the parcels and take  half each." .--.-.  " '"Oh, I should have forgotten all  about them," said Enid stooping tb  empty the. lockers.  Constance, without flickering an  eyelid, stepped into the. strong basket  with its iron hoops, and, having ar-;  ranged 7 some of the plethoric paper  bags at her feet, told her father to  "hoist away." l  She arrived safely. Enid followed  her, with equal sang froid. though ���������&  lift of forty odd feet whilst standing  in a skip and clinging to a rope is not  an every-day experience.  "Dang me.' said Ben, as Enid., too,  was swung into the lighthouse, "but  they're two plucked 'uns."  Tbel'great nell tolled away, though  the snow had changed to sleet,; and  the heights  beyond  the Land's  End  were dimly visible, so Its warning not������. .  was no longer needed.

If there is ever a time,  says that paper, when the human  machine needs tho very best and most  nourishing focd it is between the ages  of five and fiiteen. During these  years, when the body growth is most  rapid, tbe child's strength must be  kept up to the mark, and as varied as  possible a menu of foods readily converted into suitable building materials  must be provided.  Too many parents cling to the  theory that a child's likes and dislikes  in the matter of food are of no importance whatsoever; that the child must  eat what is placed before it, whether  it likes it or not. This is a very poor  system, because it often results in the  child taking a dislike to foods which,  if a little tact had been used, it might  have been led to eat with' some pleasure and appetite. Another point is  that food that one dislikes never does  as much good as it would if it had appealed to the appetite. .  If, then, a child has a dislike for,  say milk, or boiled eggs and essential  nourishing foods of that sort, do not  force them upon him, but have them  served in such a variety of ways that  he will not recognize them. If he refuses to drink milk by the glassful,  turn it into junket or into very, milky  milk puddings.  To encourage the correct development of the brain and body, care  should be exercised over the selection  of the food, and too long an interval  of time should not be allowed .to  elapse between the meals. A child*  at a very early age looks for regularity  in his meals, and whenever the time  comes round the healthy child is  reati^ and expectant for it. If left too  long that .delightful sensation of be-  ���������ing hungry will have passed away and  left a dull ache instead. The child  will either not want to eat at all or  else eat very quickly,' and perhaps  have a bad attack of indigestion in  consequence.  A child should not be brought up  on a large amount of meat;, a little in  the middle of the day is quite enough,  and then it should be ��������� not too well  done . Cold meat is hot easily digested by young children; There should  .always be yegetables. .A milky pud-;  ding with stewed! fruit, or any -pudding made with .milk and eggs, for  dessert. The 'last-meal should be  nourishing, but k:Hvery v light one.  Milk, if he will drink it, either hot or  cold, is the ideal Bupper, but if >he cannot digest it try a cup of raw-meat,  juice diluted with-boiling water. Then  he can have bread and butter, and a  lightly boiled egg, or toast and milk,  or a milky pudding, k-  It is well to encourage in children  a liking for fruit-.let them have it  whenever theywiant'it���������that is to say,  at every mealy All kinds of ripe fruit  as it comes into season should be  given to them, as well as stewed fruit,  but in the case of raw fruit the skin  should ^always be removed.. Never  allow children to eat between meals;  let these meals be regular and wholesome, and do hot give them too. many  candies. A few directly after their  midday meal, -however, are quite harmless.  1  i ~*  :k:       AN EARLY FALL MODEL  The above cut wasH made from a  recent importation of frock to be.worn  during the late summer and early fall,  and shows the new sleeve.: The mag-  yar or kimono waist has lost favor and  is.not seen on any of the newest  gowns.. This model was developed in  cashmere de soie, with ii^eta of velvet and trimmings of soutache braid  and, velvet-covered buttons. ���������: Note  the treatment of sleeve; it is set in  with a piping of velvet.  GERMAN GIRL OF TO-DAY  , SERGE AND SILK  For mid-summer wear at shore or  summer resorts this frock will appeal  to the young girl; the design is simple,  but wonderfully good- looking.7 The  material is white serge and the broad  front panel is trimmed with white  Irish crochet buttons. Silk in some  delicate shade, pale blue, pink or Nile  green is used for the deep hem, broad  collar and cuffs, and each are trimmed"  with bands of faggoting in same color.  Sides and back of the narrow belt  which confines the slight fulness of  short-waisted bodice are also of the  colored silk, and the neck finish ls  a frill of plaited white chiffon.  In Leisure Time She Cultivates Some  i' Special Taste   ...  7 According to; Madame Ola Alsen,  TWho writes in a German weekly, alterations have taken place in. the standard of': taste oi!; the -young girl of today;,7 While;there exists, in Germany  as elsewhere, a large number of young  women whose inclinations must, perforce, be turned to .wage-earning, there  is ia' large; number of I girls ot - leisure  wb^7,hiw^!ttiptte 7to 77cultlvate:7 their  tastes, .and opportunities of doing so,  for the mere sake-of tlitf pleasure to  1^7deriy^7^refTOm.7Npt every girl  is compelled to spend her life in the  rush and7bustle7 ol}' a business or a  ��������� profession ;7luxury7prpvides-them, with  just as good chances of developing  their individuality as7 wage-earning.  Thus, the girl .whose taste leans to  sport may make.that the aim of her  life. She- plays7tennis, and delights  in the fact that she is queen of the  realm, enclosed within certain- lines  marked with white chalk on: a court.  Thisit, however, is not sufficient for  her; she goes, in due season, to climb  mountains,' to. show :her prowess with  the skis, to gain the reputation of one  who can manage the sails of a yacht  with seamanlike skill. In the lecture-  rooms .there are girls who do not  make culture a means to an end, who  never dream of emulating the teaching  women, the lecturers, or those who  earn a living by the pen. They enjoy  a special study for its own sake, and  tor the joy7 if brings to them. They  travel alone in certain districts, but  they do not go without chaperons into  fashionable resorts. In couples earnest girls study - painting in Rome,  Florence, Holland, Brittany, etc., or  listen-to ^ music-at������festivals-at-Bay--  reutb or elsewhere.  IN THE  LAUNDRY  ��������� Black cotton fabrics should be washed in hot water. Use suds instead of  rubbing with soap, and rinse in very  blue water. When dry, dip in" very  thin black starch. Hang on the wrong  side.  Fresh wine stains may be removed  by dipping the stained part in a pan of  milk boiling on .the stove.  ~ If you want a tablecloth to look like  new every time it is washed, do not  starch, but. let it get perfectly dry,  then dip it in hot water, and wring  just so that it will not drip, lay it on  the board, and iron it perfectly dry.  It will take an hour to do it, but you  can get a beautiful polish. Roll on a  long, round stick, and you will have  a polished lineless tablecloth.  BEAUTY HINTS  To Stone Raisins ,  Stoning raisins in the ordinary way  is by no means a pleasant task, but  they can be done in the following way  without any trouble. Put the raisins  in a basin, and pour boiling water  over them. Let them stand for a tew  minutes, drain the water off, and you  will find that the stones will squeeze  out quite easily without taking away  from the flavor.  To obtain a slender throat try  stretching the head up as far as possible and then massage the throat,  using an upward stroke, twice a day.  To whiten your neck apply lemon-  juice occasionally.  Deep breathing will help to reduce  the waist j measurement and enlarge  the bust. The stretching exercises,  too, are splendid as waist depleters.  Raise the arms high above the head;  then, holding knees straight, try to  touch the floor with the finger tips.  Stand erect, place hands on hips,  bend from waist as far as possible to  the right, then to the left  A TIME-SAVER  REPAIRING SCREW H0LE8  For repairing screw holes where the  wood has worn away or become rotten,  a sound job can be made by cutting  an ordinary cork into small pieces and  plugging up the bole, then screwing  the screw Into It.  If . the outside of bright steamers  and pans be greased before placing  on the fire, all the soot and dirt which  adheres is very easily washed off.  This saves much scouring annd cleaning.  Aid to Plants  Plants will grow more quickly if a  few drops of ammonia be added once  ������ week to the water with which they  are watered. The water should be  lukewarm, not colder than the atmosphere, and the leaves of the plants  should be kept free from dust by being sponged ot syringed.  *<^^H^^^4-^4W^K^^>������M^>.H~3������> *****************.i**.i,.i,,iui,i..f.

When   ha, is  told  by   the   doctor,   "iff  twins." '  In view of the visions.of a coalless  ag������ called up by Sir -WilliamRamSay's  presidential address to the British Association at Portsmouth, the development of other resources of power gains  added interest and importance. Little  has been done hitherto- iii the phited  Kingdom to e xploit alternative sources of energy. Coal is plentiful and  people are hot disposed to look'centuries ahead. In Canada it is other-  ise. \  An ample supply of water-power exists almost everywhere, and local deficiencies of coal have provided the  stimulus needed for its extensive development. In copsequence, Canada  today is rapidly attaining a pre-eminent, position in the ranks of the hydo-  electric  power-producing' countries.  One of the most surprising facts'!  encountered in a study of the'world's  natural resources is the widespread  prevalence of a rough and ready sort  of compensation. This is particularly  noticeable with regard to fuel and  water power. Where coal is found in  large quantities, oil is usually wanting,  and where there is no great quantity  of water power available. Where oil  is present coal is noticeably lacking  and water-power scarce, and so on. Exceptions there are, of course, but the  rule holds good, generally speaking.  Canada, as befits such an extensive  territory, furnishes examples , of both  rule and exception.   Ontario, bountifully supplied* with water power, is deficient in coalfields, andthe oil, supply  is also insufficient to furnish enough  for local needs.    British Columbia is  well supplied    with    potential . water  power, has not   inconsiderable    coal-  j fields and possesses    oilfields    which  ! probably only, require development in  j order, to produce a large output.  I    In these circumstances it 1b natur-  *  ] ally in Oritario that the most exten-  I sive development of the water power  available is to be found. The possession of half a share in probably  the greatest natural power station in  the World���������Niagara���������is iu itself a  most important' national asset, while  there are innumerable other possible  sources of supply of a less stupendous size. - l  i  The first steps in the direction of  providing cheap hydro-electric 'power  I for use of municipalities and private  l consumers in Ontario were taken in  1906, when the Hydro-Electric Power  Commission was appointed'by an, Order in Council.   The matters to.be ih-  r ...    ���������   .    ;.  y,-..  before the end of the present year.  ���������. Turning now to British Columbia,  the next most favoured Province in  the matter "of hydro-electric power,; it  is not surprising to find that there are  a 7humberof large undertakings in  operation, under;.way or contemplated.  The British Columbia Electric Railway Company is building a large plant  oh the Jordan River. The first unit  of 6000 h.p. is expected to be ready  to deliver between September 15 and  Qctober 1st. So great has been the demand for power that a second unit, of  6000 h.p. is to be put in at once.  Active' survey work has been start  ed in connection' with the Prince Rupert Hydro-Electric Company's plans  for supplying power and light in  Prince Rupert. The programme recently adopted by the board of directors contemplates the expenditure of  .������ 123,00$ during the next twelve  months and ������512,500 within the next  four years.       N  It is proposed to develop the Kah-  tada River power by building a dam  capable of giving 15,000 horse-power,  and it is expected that within a year  there will be available not less than  3000 kilowatts which will be increased  to 15,000 kilowatts within four years.  The power will be conveyed'to Prince  Rupert, a distance of forty-two miles.  The falls on the Exaw River, twenty?  eight miles from the city, are reported  to be capable of furnishing nearly the  same amount of energy, but will not  be harnessed until circumstances., war-  ^       ... -    .       . -  rant such an action. :    7      .  ���������     4V.'- .     -,  A comprehensive survey of all the  streams in British Columbia is about  to be undertaken by the ' Canadian  Commission of Conservation, with the  object of ascertaining the volume of  water available for the generation of  electric power.

In addition to the principle source  of supply at Niagara the Power Commission has investigated many smaller, sources in connection with local  schemes. The Sable, York, Bonne-  chere,'and Blind rivers, the Whitefish  Channel, the Mississauga River, and  Sturgeon River are all capable of producing a considerable quantity of power, and with the present rapid development of the country the utilization of all available sources of energy  must naturally couie to pass.

Pleasant-  Methodist Sunday School was held on  Sunday afternoon, 24th inst., when a  large audience gathered for the.occasion. It was inspiring to see such an  attentive, intelligent, interesting Sunday School,, aiid also very gratifying  from a numerical standpoint. The annual report showed no abatement of  interest nor ���������activity, ancl we trust  that, that no spiritual declension has  characterized any section or department. A special programme of song  and response was well rendered by  the children's sweet voices. Aftei' a  few well-chosen words to the parents  by the esteemed superintendent the  Rev. \!r.

Canada is dependent foi- its In mi ber supply on  the soft woods of the forest much more than is the  United.States, as seen front the 1910 Forest Products report comx^iled by the Doniinion Forestry  13.ra'iitii7aivd--;shprtly;...tp;!be;-!publislH'd. Of the 1910  Canadian-7liunber'-'en'tv amounting to nearly five bil-  iip'n;,i!eet,.:ttuly oiie-t\y;eiitieth consists of hardwoods  pi* brpad-leiifed trees, worth barely Uve million dollars; on the other hand -"almost one quarter of the  lumber eiitin the United7Stiites consists of hardwoods, which '.country'"has-far greater hardwood  forests than ever did '..Canada; Canada is already  ���������feeling a shortage of the hardwood supply and  makes up the national deficiency by importing annually from the United. States, hardwood lumber  to the value of seven and a half million dollars.  Thus the value of the hardwo'ods impoit'd into  Canada during 1910 exceeded by SO per rent, the  value of the hardwoods manufactured into lumber.  Nearly all of these imports are from the United'  States and consist of the 'most valuable species,  such as oak. hickory, tulip pryellow poplar, chestnut, gum. walnut, cherry and a large amount of  hard pine Avhich is so frequently used as a hardwood. From these above figures it is seen that  we are becoming more and more dependent upon  the.United States whose available supply for export is surely and rapidly decreasing. Whatever  ean..be done to improve the resources of Canada  by the elimination of wood waste, and particularly  by the development of the small, wood lots of Ontario, Southern Quebec and the Maritime provinces  should be done with all possible speed.

The total income  of the company last vear was $4,643,651 j in 1910  4t was $4,192.01 f>.  CANADA'S TRADE.  Canada's trade continues to expand, as shown  by the financial statement for the month of August,  just issued by theTFinance Department. Tlnvac-  count for the five months shows revenue receipts,,  of $52,036,616, an increase of no loss than $6,206,-  246, as compared to the corresponding five months  of the previous year. The expenditures on account of the consolidated'fund for the same period  7, as greater by $.1,980,613, while the capital expenditures for the .'five.-.���������months.-.amounted to  $8,983,158. an increase ��������� of-$178,295; over similar  expenditures for the corresponding period of the  fiscal year 1910.  '  . MOROCCO AND THE MARKETS.  .  "Well informed opinion states that there will be '  no resort to arms in settlement of the'dispute between France and Germany over Morocco. The  stoek nuirkets have suffered considerably trom  rumors of possible war. Thes<; could best be settled and public confidence reassured by an announcement in IJerlin as to what the situation between .the two nations really is. says a London  cable. Roth countries have faced a difficult problem, and with the principle settled- it would be  better for the representatives of the nations to  take time to elaborate a scheme whieh would stand  the test of working. France in her own interests;-  after paying the price iu Congo territory, secures  herself from further interference in Morocco on .  the part of Germany. She sees that any undue extension of Germany's commercial interests there  will inevitably provide an excuse sooner or later  for interference. Germany cannot give France the  protectorate of Morocco, for .Morocco is an "independent" country, but she will acknowledge  France's sole* right to act as the executrix of the \  'will'of.'the. powers expressed-in tlie treaty of Al-  ,geeiras.:'' This means eventually a protectorate  similar to that whieh the British exercise in Kgypt.  ���������Several sharp declines have occurred on the  Berlin Boei^e throughout the entire list, notably  m Canadian secureties, Baltimore, Deutsche Bauk  and all staple properties.

CANADA'S   LUMBER   PRODUCTION  ���������SOFTWOODS.  Interesting statistical comparisons  may be made from the 1910 lumber report prepared by the Dominion Forestry ^Department. Of the twenty-six  native-species of wood which, together were cut in 1910 to the extent  of four billion, nine hundred million  board' feet .Avorth over ' seventy-seven  million dollars, the first nine were con-'  iferpus or softwoods.; Spruce7>vas the  most Important, alone forming over  one-quarter of the total .cut. Spruce  arid white pine together formed barely one-half of the 1910 cut, while iri  the year previous, these two species  made'' up 'nearly three-fifths bf the  total. 'This decrease in proportion is  due not' to a smaller cut of the two  species, but to a very great increase  in the amount of Douglas fir, hemlock,  cedar   and' yellow   pine  produced   in  WILD ELEPHANTS' BOLDNESS.  A correspondent of the. British East  Africa "Leader" writes from Uganda  :hat. a herd of elephant, about thirty  strong, has been visiting Entebbe district. One, morning at breakfast in  the valley prist in front of his windows they came into full view, ^hey  did not7 seem, to be at all alarmed at  the presence of the natives.

THE VOICE OF THE  REEF  There comes a time in the life of  every thinking man or woman when  the argosy of existence, floating placidly on a smooth and lazy stream,  gathers    unto    itself   speed,    rushes  ���������eared nerves of his hands throbbed  excruciatingly. Speak aloud he could  not. Yet he bent over his more helpless mate and whispered hoarsely:  "Cheer up, old man. Your case is  worse'n mine.   An' ye did it for me."  Pollard, with a soul gnarled as his  body, yet had a glimpse of higher  things when he muttered:  "D'ye think ye can hold her, mate,  whiles I hoist the cloth?"  Jackson nodded. The request was  a compliment,* a recognition. He sat  flown and hooked/the tiller between  pits arm and ribs. Ben hauled with a  will; the Daisy, as if she were glad to  escape the cascades of green water  swirling over the rock, sprang into in-  ptaut animation. The watchers from  the lighthouse saw Ben relieve the  steersman and tenderly arrange the  cushions behind . his back. Then  (Brand closed the iron doors and the  three were ieft in dim obscurity.  They cllmed nearly a hundred feet  His amazement was complete when  he encountered tbe redoubtable Daisy  bowling home before a seven-knot  breeze. He instantly came round and  ranged up to speaking distance. When  he learnt what had occurred he readily agreed to return to Penzance in  order to pick up the relief lighthouse-  keepers, ai7d thus save time in transferring them to the rock.  In a word, as Enid Trevillion was  safe, he was delighted at the prospect  of bringing her back that evening,  IWhen the real skipper of the'Lapwing  .would have charge of his own boat.  tot, call me."

Cor \3th Ave. & Main St.  Fairmont 817R-  Even the last wild plunge over; the  cascade is neither resented nor feared. Some frail craft are shattered in  transit, some wholly sunken' some  emerge with riven sails and tarnished  embellishments. A few not only survive the ordeal, but thereby fit themselves for more daring exploits, more  soul-stirring adventures.  When the two girls stood with  Stephen Brand in the narrow entrance  to the lighthouse, the gravity of their  bright young faces was due solely to  the fact that their father had announced the serious accidents which  had befallen his assistants.

His-  lop, also contributed pleasing selections whilst Mrs. Hall of Victoria added to the enjoyment of the evening  by her highly successful performance  of.the duties of accompanist.  HORSES FOR.

Gulick  Dr. Luther M. Gulick, physical director in the schools of New York, be-  < lieves that the natural age for attendance in primary departments is from  i 6 to 14 years, but finds that many chil-  ! dren drop out.   They fail because of  J faults in the' school course, irregular  attendance or  because of removable  physical    defects.    Statistics he haB  gathered  show that  16  per cent, of  Hthose  who leave  school  before  completing  their   course   are  victims  of  disease, and "those who have physical  defects such as poor hearing, poor seeing, hypertrophled tonsils, adenoids or  decayed teeth, progress through school  nine per cent, more slowly than children who are not so handicapped.
