Stevens, M.P., EDiTOR-in-Chief  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, DECEMBER 1, 1911.  No. 30  MIGHTY VISIONS PRECEDE  ENTERPRISING i UNDERTAKINGS  Vancouver, B. C. versus Any Other Coast City.  (By Pro! E. 'Odium; M.A, B. S.) 7  '.-���������')'      ���������        ...���������������������������������������������'���������<  For many years we have been foretelling the  ���������near-to-hand future' greatness of -Vancouver, and,  yet ���������'tire���������'most! optimistic.of: us have but dim outlines of the eventual' metes and bounds of this  ' Canadian urb,an giant.    When one looks up and  '������������������doAvn the Fraser River, from Lytton to its mouth,  where it empties into the salt water, he is deeply  (impressed with the tremendous.possibilities of the  future of the Fraser Valley'and its centers of population.    Area. soil, climate, topography, adaptability for raising varied and multitudinous crops,  land the most excellent types of human developers  lof the natural potentialities, are a fixed and easily  perceived   guarantee  of wonderful  success  and  limaziug wealth in the near future.    The mountains covered with forest and loaded with mineral  [wealth are an additional feature in furnishing, a  guarantee of a populous region tributary to Vancouver.   The water and their wealth remain forever.     Farming,   grazing,   fruit-growing,   river  (transportation, shipping, commerce, the coasting  jtrade, the immense 'trans-continental facilities so  rapidly multiplying, the unequalled growth and  >ng-distance extension of the Electric Tram Sys-  rem, are all permanent an insisting factors in building up and maintaining a Greater Vancouver, such  Its few of us care to describe in writing.   As some  lif our great world writers think they see Vancouver the coining capital of the British Empire, when  Jhat Empire contains all it now has, and in addition nmny other lands and territories as well asi the  United States in and on terms of equality as a copartner, so, in a similar manner T look forward to  ie time when the whole of this lower district, in-  kuding what we now call Vancouver, all the re-  Ion bounded by straight lines from Vancouver to  lort ..Moody, from Port Moody to Pitt River via  Bapperton,'New.Westminster and Steveston to the  liouth of the Fraser River and thence to Vancou-  y, as one great city.    This area is capable of  Iding comfortably a population of say 1,500,000  |[>ple. -.'������������������.-������������������"������������������ y77,;.  There are many now living in this very area  io will see a population   therein   contained   as  [���������teat as, or greater than one and a half million.  What the population of British Columbia will  LfeJtiikLtiffi������dfi'--&^  man can say; but it will be large.   And the  jjulation of the Dominion of Canada will run  in the decades of millions.   Now, it is for this  tmense city we are forced to plan, and our pub-  I men, including aldermen, boards   of   control,  fards pf commission, park boards, school boards,  cense commissioners,    central   executives   and  Iters, must quickly Lay their plans so that there  [ll be no patch-work as has been too common "in  : past.    ' ���������''... 'Q-  1 We are all straining, each in-his own place and  jording to his limited capacity to meet the f lire demands of urban life and responsibilities.  ^ .-      ���������.-;'��������� .  The finance committee, the board of works and  fier groups of aldermen are kept on the strain to  -keep their end of the work.  The engineering department should have the  st assistance that a highly public-spirited popu-  fe/eah. afford. I have a colored map before me as  rrite.   It sets out the sections of sewerage as  Bnpleted, ��������� as under way, and as to be provided  by the coming election in January.  In one group, between Graveley street and  cth avenue alone, there are nearly forty blocks  Ier construction with a. view to be ..finished at  "early date.  In addition to this area there is a large dis-  ������������������t south, running down to the Great Northern  plway which is being provided for by main  jk sewers.   Further, there is provision for the  [ina Creek outlet which requires a very large  Lin trunk line.   This will sewer the low lying  rtion between Clarke Drive and the extreme  tern limits of the City, and from east of Com-  rcial street.  This latter will provide for the sewage of  fcr fifty blocks.

P., AT  "HIS MAIDEN SPEECH"  The Press epitome of ..Mr.-Stevens" speech is interesting, instructive and pleasant reading.  During the'-election'campaign .Mr. Stevens promised he would do ali he could, and quickly too, to  bring about, certain changes, improvements, and legislation bearing upon the interests of the  Electoral District he represents, as avcII as for tlie whole Province. lie has begun in a most vigorous and practical manner to make good his promises. At the very outset. I must say that he has  been assisted in his beginnings at Ottawa, in a splendid manner by the Hon. Premier McBride, the  lion. Attorney General Bowser and our late .Member, Mr. George Cowan, K.C. A good start is half  the battle, and Mr. Stevens was favored with just such a send-off.  On his arrival at Ottawa he went to Avork in earnest on the question of securing the dredge,  Mastodon, urging for a Harbor Commission, changes in the logging laws, fishing licenses and  many other matters. - ' ^  On the floor of the House he made a quick-tire start, and delivered a sensible aud telling  speech. His definiteness, and ready replies' to interruptions showed that he had got to the bottom  of the problems he was dealing with. This is the work of a master: to grasp the whole situation,  and to seize all the important details. Having done this iu an honest manner, and with the object  of rendering straightforward service to the whole country with a public-spirited intent, he finds  a niche among those who are respected, consulted and advanced in the nation's trust.  Mr. Stevens did well to make the whole House turn its thoughts towards British Columbia  early in the proceedings. His handling of Mr. Verville was masterly, and* caught him under the  fifth rib, .incidentally letting Sir Wilfred and his followers know that once again A^ancouver has  sent an able man to look after her interests.  Mr. Borden, early ou, handled the speech of Sir Wilfred in relation to a Cabinet of men who  never differed in opinion. And in turn Mr. Stevens took up the cudgel and gave the Opposition  and its leader a few good sound thumps on this very topic. Just look this extract in the face and  see the fine sarcasm: "The imagine there is a difference of opinion in the Government. Can you  imagine a more direct contrast than the honorable member for.Red Deer,.������,.hearty, hale, bluff  John Bull, au Imperialist and a free-trader, fitting on the same political bench with the leader of  the opposition^ an'avowed Protectionist?"        * ���������  "A Highway .across the Continent," in addition to the many Trans-continental Railways completed, building,and under proposition, is worthy of serious consideration. The future has many  great enterprises in store for Canada and Canadians, hence we need men of broad, deep and clear  vision, to outline something of their ''waking dreams" to those who may be led to join the vanguard of materializing progress.  Mr. Stevens treated the Oriental problem in a distinct and able manner during the election  campaign, and iio wonder he has made a strong hit at Ottawa while delivering his maiden hpeech.  He is right and Avise in backing up Mr. Borden and the Government on the proposition of  aiding agricultural interests, and giving greater help to Colleges such as are required to further  this phase of our national life and development. The honest devotion of All*. Stevens to Mr. lior-  den has its roots deep in his patriotic instincts, backed up by an intelligent grasp of tho national  and Imperial situation and their needs.  ���������'���������'''���������' ������������������.'..���������''������������������ u   '���������' ���������  Now is the time to turn the wisdom and good sense of our Government to the question of  regulating the trusts before they get such a control of Canada as they have iu the States, a cause  for socialism and anarchy.  The fierce aiKl_heartless nature of big trusts must becurbed _qui_ckly_oiyCajmdjans_wjlJ_ find,  one of the worst curses ever visited upon any people. Our raw material and vast resources are so  . stupendous that no country on earth offers advantages and opportunities so extensive for destruction and unlimited trusts. Hence Mr. Stevens has done well to raise his voice on behalf of the  whole people as against a few multi-millionaires, pirates of human lives and freedom, unless restrained and tied up for purposes of public safety.  During the Election 'Campaign, T, in common with some others, took the opportunity to set  forth the opinion, that, as Canada has a Raihvay Commission, quite clear of polities, so there  should be a non-political, businesslike body of men whoso sole' duty would be to look after the  questions of Tariff Regulations, as the need for changes might occur. Such a Commission could do  as the Railway Commission does. It deals with all questions as they come along, and does not wait  for changes of government or orders therefrom. Mr. Stevens is right aud shows his good sense  in standing by Premier Borden in this highly important proposition.  There is no doubt that Mr. Stevens will be a most valuable helper to the Government in making changes in relation to our British Columbian fisheries and the regulations bearing upon them.  A pressing need will give rise to early governmental changes, and here Mr. Stevens is the right'  man in the right place.  Finally, I wish to draw attention to the importance of the views of Mr.. Stevens relating to  the much talked of Naval Proposals. Here again, it can be seen that he has clearly caught the  meaning, desire and demands of his constituents. Our people wish for, and demand that a radical  change be made from the proposal of the late government. And. Mr. Stevens aims at aiding Premier Borden in providing naval help on truly Imperial lines, and such help as. will be of value in  times of need.  ��������� ���������'      '       ���������'���������-"...     i! 7" '-.   . .'������������������'������������������'���������' -���������'���������.."���������  The late proposal was one to spend money and get worse than no results of value. When the  next British Avar comes, I mean a real war, it-Avill.be fought and settled largely on the ocean, and  in all probability in one sea-fight. Admiral Togo, in his first brilliant onslaught, made a definite  beginning of the end of the Russian Avar. He secured a clear and permanent advantage, a grip  he-neA'er let go until Russia Avas choked to quits.  ������������������-   .      --������������������''..     ._ .       ���������.���������-.���������'     "������������������ "  ���������*��������� "      v\. . -. ���������    7  So Avith Britain. She must have her full force ready "to strike a death-blow at one spot and  one fleet Avhen the time'��������� comes, and;it comes on in spite of all peace proposals. Premier Borden's  plan is to aid the British fleet, not Avith a Tin-Whistle Navy, but Avith something of material fighting power,;��������� capable of producing, in company with the main naA-ai machine, a Trafalgar-like, or  Togo-like effect on the fleet of the Mailed Fist of Europe's War-Lord.  While Mr. SteA-ens interprets the desires of his constituents so clearly as he is iioav doing at  Ottawa, and stands loyally to his able and noble-spirited leader, Premier Borden, he Avill have the  respect confidence and support of the electorate of Burrard. E.G.  NE TEMERE DECREE  Mr. Herbert, the plaintiff in the famous Her-  bert-Clonatre marriage annullment case, Avithdrew  from the case on the plea that he Avas short of  funds. As a result of this action, as far as the  individuals are concerned, their relations will be ������  just as they were before action Avas taken and  are still man and Avife according to civil laW, although not married according to the ecclesiastical  Iuav of their church. It will, however, lea\'e the  principle still undecided, which is.rather unfortunate, as it was hoped that this might have been  finally disposed of by the decision of this case.  Tt is asserted in many quarters that Herbert,  who was supported by< the "Church, withdrew because of the antagonistic attitude of the public,  to his case and not for lack qf funds entirely. It  is well known that the claim of the Church  through this decree of the power and right to *  annul marriages which are contrary to the ecclesiastical laws of that Church has roused the public  indignation to a far greater extent .than was at  first expected. The question was a serious factor  in the recent elections and is also prominent iu  political circles in England. Even among the  Roman Catholics of Quebec, there is a strong feeling against it, all these combined have no doubt  greatly influenced the church authorities to withdraw in the Herbert case.  > This, however, does not dispose of the question,  but leaves it in a position where it can be brought  ou again at, any time in the same case or in others.  It is most unfortunate that this absurd claim that  the ecclesiastical' law supercedes the civil law,  should be advanced by the church authorities because it breeds ill feelings between citizens who  otherwise would be quite content to live in har- '  mony. We are not concerned as to what is- the -  religious beliefs of our fellow citizens,7all we ask  is that they be loyal, industrious and moral, and  we canv be all of, these, and believe-almost any  creed. A man>'s religious views.is his own business, not his neighbor's, but Ave must protest when  an attempt is made to impose some particular religious idea upon those who think otherwise and  especially so when the civil courts are used to  enforce such an attempt.  The solution would be to secure from the Provinces the surrender to the Federal authorities of  the right to legislate for marriage and thus secure  a uniform Federal marriage law. At present this  right rests Avith the Provinces, but at the coining  conference of Provincial Premiers it might be  possible to have this question discussed.  Mighty Visions Precede Enterprising  '_L      Undertakings   Continued from First Column  will add much to the comfort arid healthfulness  of the GrandvicAv district.  So far as I am able to make out. the other  parts of the city are being treated in a similar  manner. Hence from this one view point Ave shall  soon be in a better condition. But even so, since  the population is rapidly extending in all possible  directions, the coming demands for greater things  will multiply and urgoncy will be tlie order of the  day.  As I go about the eity, T am amazed lo see  how great the improvements are, and what won-i  ders have been wrought in the short space of  twenty-five years.. At times it makes me feel  proud that 1 am a Vancouveritc, and that I have  been always in some sort of active touch with the  City's growth and improvements.  ...  In closing, we, in a big-soul ed manner, should  aid, as far as we reasonably can, those��������� Avho are in  positions of trust, Avhether they are there by election or appointment. Our city is rapidly surpassing every other Coast City, and in tAventy-five  years Avill have left them all. behind forever,, so  long as the world lasts. From every standpoint  Vancouver has the advantage over Seattle, Tacoma, Portland and 'Frisco, as well as Prince  Rupert. And this fact, all open-eyed, clear-mind-,  ed, honest travellers know and admit.  " .. Heuee I say to all my readers: Remain in  Vancouver at your post.' Hold your oav.u. Secure  ���������a piece of ground, at almost any sacrifice, and  then hold to it as to life. Vancouver will outstrip every optimistic and idealistic creation of  -the present day urban builders aiid image creators.  Vancouver. B. C-.

S.-Osborne, Governor of Michigan. -  "We insert this as an interesting and instructive  ���������document to all such as have never seen one, but  of particular value to those '���������who have lived under  the Stars and Stripes whose memories recall family gatherings and enjoyable periodical festivities  on this day, universally observed in every State  of the Union.  ��������� Now, when Sabbath observance and its enforcement in our city is under discussion, this proclamation will serve to show that Attorney-General  Bowser is in good company when he favors  acknowledgment of Almighty God as a deity.  A PROCLAMATION: BY THE GOVERNOR.  The loving and merciful God has vouchsafed benediction upon the people of Michigan during the year nineteen hundred eleven, now rapidly drawing to its close.-  The elements, in their devastations, have made visitation, but the loss of human life has been small as a.  result. Vital statistics show a decrease in the death  tolls. From the soil has come to those who till it and  those who must be fed, a reward of -more than that  which is barely sufficient. The state is free from famine,  contagion and abnormal lawlessness. Human life is  held sacred, homes are inviolate and property is safe.  A condition obtains for which our people should be  profoundly thankful.  Observation of Thanksgiving Day may be festive, but  it is the duty of every individual to give thanks unto  God. This should not be merely lip service, but should  touch the recesses of the heart and the deepest cisterns  of the soul. Man is recreant and a coward who thanklessly accepts Divine blessings in strength, happiness  and prosperity and only turns to God in weakness, misfortune and extremity. A meaningful way to celebrate  Thanksgiving would be to make a contribution, if only  of a penny, to some Christian Church. These institutions of God should be remembered wholesomely in the  glory of our best days, so that when the tottering eventide arrives there shall be that comfort which will cure  fear and trembling.  Therefore, in consideration of ..the blessings of Almighty God, so bountifully visited upon the people of  Michigan, I, Chase S. Osborn, Governor of the State of  Michigan, do appoint and set aside Thursday, November  thirtieth, as a day of prayer, feasting, and thanksgiving.  Given under my hand and the Great Seal of the State,  this thirtieth day of October, in the year of Our Lord,  one thousand nine hundred and eleven, and of the  Commonwealth the seventy-fifth.  CHASE S. OSBORN.  By the Governor:  FREDERICK C. MARTINDALE,  Secretary of State.  and forty thousand dollars. As the hardwood forests of Canada ai-e already greatly depleted, and.  as the Canadian products/transported in barrels  are chiefly-flour and apples, requiring only slack  cooperage, the tight cooperage stock manufactured  in 1910 amounts to only one-fifth of tbe total  value. Barrels made from tight stock are used as  containei's of oils, alcoholic7'liquors and other  liquids, and as Canada has practically no wood of  sufficiently clear quality for such stock, the most  of it has to be imported as staves or stave bolts  from the United States. Of the-'total, slack cooperage made up one million three hundred and  ninety-five thousand dollars; which is two hundred  thousand dollars less than the 1909 value. Notwithstanding the decrease in value of slack cooperage for 1910, the number of pieces produced was  five hundred thousand more than in 1909. Practically no cooperage is manufactured in Canada for  export, and whatever quantity is shipped out is  the cooperage left on the manufacturers' hands  after the domestic market has been satisfied. In  the middle of the last decade the export trade was  quite an important branch of the cooperage industry, but in 1910, exports of staves, heading an<ii  barrels amounted to only one hundred and fifteen  thousand dollars.  WOOD USED FOR SHINGLES, 1910.  COOPERAGE PRODUCTION, 1910.  The amount of cooperage produced in Canada  durin gl910 has been compiled by the Dominion  Forestry Branch at Ottawa. Reports were received from one hundred and thirty-three firms���������  of which ninety-four were in Ontario���������showing  that slack and tight cooperage was produced in  Canada to the value of one million seven hundred  Ten species of wood are used in the manufacture  of shingles in Canada, of which cedar is the most  important. Reports received by the Forestry  Branch at Ottawa show that over nine-tenths of  the two billion shingles produced in Canada during 1910 were of this species and that over one-  half of these were Western cedar cut in British  Columbia. The consumption of spruce and white:  pine has decreased stiddenly in 1910, eighty-two  per cent, less of the former being made than in  1909, and scarcely one-fifth the usual amount of  white pine being produced. Nova Scotia and  Quebec cut most of the spruce shingles. The  white pine shingles are mostly of the species  Pinus monticola and are cut in British Columbia.  Nearly three million more of. hemlock shingles'  were produced in 1910 than during the year previous and of the total of fifteen million pieces, over  nine-tenths was produced in Ontario and Quebec.  The above four species furnished over ninety-  eight per cent, of the wood used in shingles. Balsam, douglas fir and jack pine, although. of less  importance, were used during 1910 in increasing  quantities, and for the first time tamarack and red  pine,were reported ap shingle wood;. There was  less fluctuation in the value of the species than  formerly.' Balsam .shingles were the cheapest at  $1.48 per thousand, and tamarack the most expensive at $2.49.  ANNEXATION OF CANADA BY THE  UNITED STATES.  Hon. Champ Clark, speaker of the*  "national House of Representatives, %  has been talking again about the annexation of Canada. In a speech at  Fremont, Neb., he is reported to have  said that nine-tenths of the people of  this nation favor the annexation of  Canada. "I don't care who hears me  say that," the Missourian declared.  "Moreover, I am willing to make this  proposition���������you let me run for president" on a platform calling for annexation of Canada in so far as this country can accomplish it, and let President Taft run against me, opposing  annexation���������and���������well, I'd carry every  state in the union." If Mr. Clark is  correctly reported, it raises strong  suspicion that his famous utterance in  Congress last winter, which queered  reciprocity, was more serious than  jocular.. It,also. arises.strong .suspicion  whether Champ Clark has discretion  enough to be a safe man for president.  What is to be accomplished by such  utterances? How is Mr. Clark or the  United States to annex Canada without her consent? And that can't be  gained by any such threats as the  above'7 Such talk is very foolish, to  say/the least.���������Michigan Christian Advocate.  WOMEN'S    FEET  BIGGER.  GROWING  The foot of woman is growing larger every year, according to the testimony of members of a New York Shoe  Dealers' Association. The explanation  is that it is because women are doing  more walking and going in for all  sorts of outdoor exercise. The day of  the No. 1 shoe is gone, although many  women could wear them a few yeads  ago. "You may remember," declared  a manufacturer to an interviewer,  "that there was a time when every  woman's shoe was honestly marked  with its size. That was not so long  ago. Then women's feet began to get  larger. A woman who used to Tvear  a No. 2 shoe could not take a No. 3,  no matter how comfortably it might  fit. That drove us to marking shoes  with a secret code. We had to do that  to sell a shoe that fitted."  That cold snap will soon be here.   Are you prepared <:  for it?   If not why not?

The street, to begin with, will be entirely private property.. The pavement of the footpaths is to be of  marble, "as in Venice." At the bend  is to be a garden, and in the midst  of it a statue of King Edward. ^ Glass  roofs will "jut over the pavement,  shielding foot passengers from rain  or sun, along the whole length of the  street. The newest kind of international hotels, two or three in number,  will.be built, with doors on the Rue  Edouard VII, and the shops will be the  best in Paris.  The ambition of the Edward VII  street of Paris evidently is to cut out  the Rue de la Paix.������ It will be opened  to traffic in two years' time or less.  Finally, the most remarkable feature  of the Rue Edouard VII will be that  being a private road, it will be "entirely and strictly policed by private  policemen." These, about 20 in number, will be, it seems, all brought over  from London. Presumably they will be  retired constables, and will occupy  about the same position as stalwart  and magnificent commissionaires do  in London/  Twenty pleasant posts, with, it may  be supposed, fine uniforms, will therefore soon be offered to London policemen who think they might like to settle on the boulevards. They must, however, be warned that they will be expected to "speak English, Italian and  German perfectly"���������^rather a large order, perhaps, for a retired constable.  They will also have to know "French  enough to make themselves understood." Would-be private policemen of  the Rue Edouard VII haveabout two  years in which to qualify; themselves  by learning Italian, German and the  little French needed in Paris.

A wealthy Washington lady, some  while since, lost pair of pearl earrings and brooch valued at ?1000. After a thorough search the settings only  were found in the garden���������the stones  had disappeared. Suspecting her pet  turkey of the theft, she bad the bird  killed, with no result until the body  was submitted to a chemist, who. after  an examination/declared the bird to  be the culprit. Upon entering the  gizzard the pearls had immediately dissolved. To commemorate her loss Mrs.  Brackett arranged an impromptu dinner, at which the piece-de-resistance  was the peccant, and costly turkey.  This dinner off a Rgarl-fattened turkey recalls the classic story of Cleopatra, who, at a banquet given to Antony, took from her ear a magnificent  pearl, worth a king's ransom, dropped  it into a cup of vinegar, which, when  it,had dissolved the precious gem, she  drank to her guest's health. Clodius,  too, the son of Aesopus, a celebrated  actor, after having been informed that  dissolved pearls possessed a delicious  flavor, invited, to a banquet a select  cotorie of friends, to each of whom  he presented in a costly goblet a potion containing the precious essence.  Seed pearls served with rice formed  one of the eccentric dishes of which  that licentious tyrant, the Emperor  Heliogabalus, was wont to invite his*  guest to partake. Saucers of gold and  previous stones were by no means rare  at <his luxurious entertainments, the  costly and the common being generally blended. Thus peas were generally mixed with golden pieces, beans  were sprinkled with beads of amber,  while lentils were concealed beneath  a layer of rubies.  The superstition that the ruby  changed color at the approach of danger to its owner was, in bygone ages,  a popular belief, in which, among others, the great General Wallenstein,  shared. Having got wind that a conspiracy against him was on foot, he  acting on the advice of the astrologer  Seni.'invited the suspects to a supper,  at which to each guest was served a  dish sprinkled with powdered rubies.  In the guise of a servant, Seni passed  round the table, and having made pretence to note tlie hue of the crushed  gems, assured his master in a/Whisper  that the danger was imminent. On this  warning the credulous Wallenstein acted with promptitude; Beveral of his*  guests were .arrested, and on the following day led to execution.  At the time, of the conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards certain of Cortes'  officers, angered at the refusal of a  wealthy Mexican to disclose the hiding place of his possessions, of which  a great portion consisted of emeralds,  devised a hideous retaliation. The  hoard having been discovered.(he conquerors invited their prisoner aud his  family to a banquet, at which the  dishes were sprinkled with the wretched man's gems. These the Spaniards  compelled him, his wife, and their  children, to swallow with their food,  making sure of their recovery b.v  murdering their luckless guests whose  bodies were then opened and the booty regained.        >��������� /  A similar idea, although not carried  to the same tragic length, was that  conceived by another Spaniard, the  Duke of Alva, when he summoned to  an���������entertainment-'oertaiii^'Hollanders,-  who, by his orders, had been kept without food for two days. The first course  set before them consisted of a ragout  composed of meat mixed 'with gold  and silver coins, together with various  gems that had formerly belonged to  their wives. Naturally the starving  men put these aside, whereupon their  host, with the grim observation that  hungry men must not pick and choose,  ordered them back to their cells.  t  MT.

This is said to be the average for every minute of the twenty-  four hours of the day. Fifteen hundred billion is the rfumber for the entire year, and those persons who live  under the American flag are charged  with the consumption of one-half of  this amount.  The importance Of the industry  which turns out the little splinters of  wood tipped with sulphur or some other material ignited by friction, is only  recognized when the average smoker  tries to contemplate his predicament  if he had to go back to the time when  he had to coax a spark from a" tinder-  box. Small and insignificant as it is,  the match demands as much attention  in the choice of the wood involved in  its manufacture as any other forest  product. Only the choicest portions of  the best trees are suitable. Sap-wood,  knotty or cross-grained timber will  not do. Instead of being a by-product,  the littie match is turned out at hundreds of mills over the country where  the by-products are bulky objects like  doors, sash, shingles, sidings, posts,  and cord-woods. The pines, linden,  aspen, white cedar, poplar, birch and  willow are the most suitable match  timbers.  MOST  VALUABLE     GARDEN  THE WORLD.  IN  PROF.

This old-fashioned garden has a  fountain in, the centre, gravelled  paths and a couple of trees, the whole  forming a quadrangle with the bank  building running all round.  Its history isf, a curious one. In  reality this garden is the churchyard  of the vanished Church of St. Christo-  pher-le-Stock, which used to stand  where the Mansion House now is.  One reason why the church was  pulled down was because its tower  completely overlooked the bank and  it was feared that it would be a danger to the "Old Lady" if the  was occupied by rioters.

December 3rd, is Advent Sunday,  and Ave are- thus reminded that after  the four Sundays in Achrent, comes  Christmas Day, and this first Advent  of the Child Jesus in debasing humility, reminds us'of-that dread and yet  glad day, when He shall come again  in His Glorious Majesty to be our  judge; .when the cry will'not be "Who  is this?"; but "Lo, this is our God, we  have waited for Him, and He will save  us!" or a fearful cry to the rocks and  hills to cover us.  But now considering the first Advent���������"Who is this?" "This is Jesus,  who when the fullness of time had  come, when moral darkness blackened  the path of life, visited us, as the day  spring from on high." Some thousands of years had passed since nan  had first left the path of rectitude, a  long and weary track led from the gate  rof Eden's Garden to Calvary's Hill, yet  a road each step on which was marked  and noted by the Almighty. Humanity  was everywhere wearied of its own  systems, a mightly Messiah was expected, the very cultured heathen felt  and acknowledged that there was a  power mightier and greater than any  of their philosophical systems could  show, and a return of the golden age  was thought to be near at hand. "Show  us the Father, and it sufflceth us, and  we have altars to the unknown God,  we devote the day of the week we  call after the Heaven, Truth, to, and  on that day (Tuesday), we worship  Tuisco, the God who lives in the clear  heaven." Truly they were feeling  after Christ, if haply they might find  Him."  . But man's extremity is ever God's  opportunity, so at this first Advent, before which for 400 years even the  voice of prophecy had been silent,  when despair brooded, a glorious ray  of kindly hope suddenly showed itself through the darksome gloom; the  voice was heard of one crying in the  wilderness: "Prepare ye the way of  the Lord."  Read of those times, it was the yery  night of the world, full of people "that  walked in darkness;" hideous creatures of Satan, hate, malice, blasphemy  lust and passion were rampant, a  slimy trail of all uncleanness spread  over the earth's ways; it was a night  so dark, that men could not in the  least recognize the image of God in  each other, a time of gross ignorance  and appalling sin.  At such a time then  "the Word was made flesh, and dwelt  among us." ��������� ���������-���������:..   .  The first Advent then of Jesus in  human nature, was the greatest of  blessings, and that in niany .ways'.-: He  brought, as it wore, the Godhead from  heaven, to appeal "more directly to us.  "I will send by beloved Son, maybe  they will revenence Him, when they  see Him." At Eden, the tree of knowledge had only proved a curse, at the  first Advent, Jesus became to us the  tree of knowledge, whereby our eyes  are opened and Ave all share alike in  a blessed consciousness of Him;  which knowledge men longed for and  groped for in vain in the long ages  before.  Again by coming in human nature,  like ourselves, He gave to the Godhead  a distinct personality; before the  Deity9 had seemed so distant, for sin  had prevented God from communing  with man; but now the sould has a  divinely-human person as the object of  its love.  By coming in the flesh, He gave us  access and approach to the Godhead;  no longer was their need to worship  God afar off, to offer sacrifices of sin  offerings to appease His wrath; but  now our eyes are pointed plainly to the  one last sacrificial altar of the world  on Calvary's Hill. Now our great  High Priest allows us to approach with  in the innermost veil, and by the sacriT  fice of a broken and contrite heart,  by prayer and His Holy Sacraments to  worship "face to face."  "The Father sent the Son to be the  Saviour of the World," and in spite  of all the ungrateful acts- of man, the  contradiction of sinners, and the hate  of human fiends, Jesus fulfilled His  mission here on earth. Throughout  His earthly life He set the Gross always before His eyes, and neither  devil nor man could turn Him from  the Divinely appointed path till the  work of man's redemption was complete.  So mindful of what this first Advent meant to us miserable sinners,  we take up the exordium for the first  Sunday in Advent, (December 3..,"Now  it is high time to awake out of sleep."  Advent is not strictly penitential' sea*  son, or in any way a Christmas Lent,  it has the strongest element of joy  in it, just as at the first Advent, a  glorious ray of kindly hope suddenly  appeared, but it is a time of preparedness, of getting ready for the coming  of Jesus. And now note the respective  teachings of the four Advent Sundays  before Christmas.  First���������A wakefulness:   "For now  is  your salvation  nearer than  Avhen  ye  believed.''  Second: Hope. "For Christ is coming. '      ..'.   ; .  Third: Responsibility, to call yourselves to account, that you may be  ready to receive the Child Jesus.  Fourth: Rejoicing. "For the Lord  is at hand."  There is a pressing need for this  first call to Awake! Hoav often is  there and has there been a tendency  in Nations, churches and individuals  to fall into jthe sleep of sloth, especially after any great period of intellectual or spiritual conflict. Take two  examples of each:  Nations���������Jerusalem did not .awake;'  Nineveh did.  Churches���������The seven Churches of  Asia Minor did not, .the Christian  churches of the Anglo-Saxon race,  after the long struggle from the Reformation to the Restoration were in  the 18th and early part of the 19th  century in a slothful condition; they  are now awake.  Individuals���������Felix only,- as it were,  turned uneasily in his sleep'; St.  Augustine awoke from the sleep of  sin, and became one of the Master's  chief missionaries of the Gospel.  What of ourselves? Do we hear,  aiid not heed, do we neglect the assembling of ourselves together, as the  manner of some is," are we almost  persuaded "to awake," yet alas! get  more and more indifferent, at rare intervals attracted by some tremendous  effort for our. spiritual welfare, but  gradually sinking into the snow-sleep  that first produces intense drowsiness,  from which kind friends endeavour in  vain to arouse us, until at last we  sleep the'sleep of a spiritual death.  Take warning, "whilst it is called  today." Live each day,as if it were  your last, for the final call to awake  will inevitably be followed by the Day  of Judgment.

In any other land than that from  Avhich the sun refuses to retire at  midnight accounts of boatloads of  men listening to the private conversations of fishes under water would  smack too much of the adventures [  of "Alice in Wonderland" to be taken  seriously. Nevertheless, the fishermen along the Norwegian coasts are  just such eavesdroppers.  Every fishing vessel is now equipped -with a telephone to which is attached a microphone designed: to  augment submarine sounds. These  sounds, collected by an electrical apparatus, communicate by means of a  copper wire with the receiver of the  telephone installed on the boat.  By listening in the ordinary way.  receiver   at   ear,   the   fisherman   can  tell precisely the moment when    the  fish begin to collect.  ,   It is said that there is a considerable   difference   in   the   sounds   made-  by the various fish as they congregate.  The- cod utters a gutteral grunt and  the herring has a Avhistling intonation-  whicli is said to be rather musical.  The Citizens' band at Collingwood  is progressing famously.

An interview with an engineer given  recently in a western paper to the  effect that there' is abundant timber  on the line of the Hudson Bay Railway is an illustration of the misapprehension in regard to this matter  that exists in the public mind. Because there are large areas of land  in the north on which there is timber  of some kind, the conclusion is reached that it is all of present value-and  that the country has an unlimited  supply. As a matter of fact a careful  inspection of the timber along the  line of the Hudson Bay Railway made  in the years 1910 and 1911, by the  Forestry Branch of the Department of  the Interior, shows that there is not  enough mature timber along the line,  of that railway to build the road.  There are no prairie districts of any  extent along the route; there are  trees everywhere, but owing to repeated fires the forest ls,v except on  the mereBt fraction of the area, too  small  for  commercial   purposes  and  unless it can be protected from fire  until it rcacheB maturity, will never  be of any use to the country. Explorations in ottier parts of the northern  forested districts tell the same tale.  Everywhere fire has worked havoc,  and the forest is a mere wreck of  what it might have been if fires could  be prevented. And unless adequate  measures are taken now to protect  the young and immature forests which  form the major par,* of the stand, the  outlook for the future is none too  good.  If the northern forests arc-to continue to be a permanent source of  wealth to the country, it is absolutely  necessary that the fire ranging system should be extended and that proper methods of management of the  forest' should be applied, and public  education to the value of the forest  is even more necessary.  In Sweden, which has large extents  of northern forest, practically uninhabited, similar to those in northern  Canada, has about eliminated the. fire  danger in such districts mainly by  educating her people to the value of  the forests.  INVESTMENT THAT  PAYS.  No home in Western Canada can  better invest a dollar than send it for  a year's subscription to The Family  Herald and Weekly Star. That paper  has been a blessing in thousands of  Western homes. Its agricultural columns are as good as a course in a college. Its world's news page covers  everything in the news line, and its  magazine section provides ample reading for the whole family. Any person  seeing the beautiful picture, "Home  Again," in a shop window, would readily give two dollars for it; yet it can  be had absolutely free by sending a  dollar for a year's subscription to the  paper. Such a paper for a year with  such a beautiful picture all for the  price of a bushel of wheat is certainly  a good investment.  ******** I 949*9************  *99ii*ii**9*9*************9*  .HM^^:~H^K^������M^^^������H^������H^^������������������*���������  4 4  I 4  4 4  4 >  4   4  4   4  THE SPEECH FROM THE THRONE.  SEASONS GREETINGS  Cash Grocers and Provision  *  -���������?���������  i  X  t  XMAS  I  nor Labor  please our  llie brilliant scene which accompanied the reading of the speech from  the throne at the opening of parliament has never been equalled in the  history of Canada. A prominent American who was present said that in  all his wide experience at great social  and state functions at Washington, he  had never seen anything' which would  surpass it.  His Royal Highness, was seated on  the dais in the Senate chamber; on  his left sat the Duchess, and grouped  near their Royal Highnesses were the  noted civil and military authorities.  Then seated in front were the members of the'Senate, immediately behind them were the ladies, most beautifully gowned, making a striking contrast to the sombre black attire of the  Senators. At the bar of the Senate  were, gathered the members of the  House of Commons, while every inch  of gallery space was occupled.by those  ladies and gentlemen who were fortunate enough to secure invitations.  His Royal Highness read the speech  in, a clear voice and in a manner  which at once commanded the respect  of his distinguished audience.  The Speech.  The speech, which of course represents the programme of the government  for   the   present   session,   has  caused considerable, ad verse criticism.  The opposition contend that it does  not contain anything of much value  and exhibits lack of policy, while on  the other hand some of the government supporters intimate that it would  have been better not to attempt anything new at all in the first session,  rather than a limited programme such  as outlined in the speech.  However, it is clear that Mr. Borden  purposes keeping faith with the people re his pre-election pledges, and a  careful perusal of the speech will reveal a considerable number of important questions which the House will  be called upon to debate.  , Reference is made to the disappointment occasioned by the census'  returns. This point will likely call  forth some severe - criticism of the  manner in which the late government  took the census.  'The subject of Imperial Preference  i&'giveh prominence/and,' coupled witn  the suggestion of the appointment ot  a tariff commission, win liKeiy result  in an impetus being given to the tor-  mer and some practical suggestion as  to how it may be carried out.  A bill is to be introduced to enable  the Dominion to assist tue provinces  to extend the highways and tuus give  better facilities or communication  tnrough tlie rural districts ana ai&o  towards extending the great national  arteries of trattic.  This matter is of supreme importance to tfmisli Columbia, wnere it is  so didicult to get access to more remote districts, &ud wnl greatly aiu in  tlie settlement oi outlying sections  The Department of Agriculture is  to bring torward a bill to aid the'provinces" to" establish" betteFlacilifies^or  instruction or larmers, thus losteriug  our greatest industry ancl in assisting  the farmer to secure the best possible i '<  results trom his labor. J  The Hudson Bay Raihvay project is  to oe taiien up and an announcement  will later be made as to the most  reasible route to be followed.  An intimation has been given that  "tjuebuoiis relating to external alfairs '  will le introduced later, and also tuat  ���������'terminal elevator facilities under government control'"' will also be placed  before the House.  Thus it will be. seen that the session is not likely to.be very brief.  Much complaint is heard from opposition quarters because the govern-,  ment has seen fit not to make a-definite   statement  of  its'  intention   on  LUMBER WASTE FOR PULPWOOD.  For the purpose of manufacturing  the four hundred and seventy-five  thousand tons of wood pulp produced  in Canada in 1910 nothing was used  except logs of various species, which  as our timber supply decreases are becoming , valuable for lumber and  other uses. No slabs or other sawmill waste was reported as being converted into wood pulp by neglecting  whicii practice, Canada is losing greatly. During 1909 in the United States  six per cent, of the total pulpwood  consumption was from'slabs and mill  trimmings. If economy had been  practiced to the same extent in Canada during the year 1910, as much  pulp might have been produced as  from thirty-six thousand cords of  wood and not one pulp log need have  been cut. This would have made  twenty per cent, more- pulp than  Nova Scotia produced in 1910.  Looking at the subject from another view point the gain might have  been much greater. Over one-half of  the five billion feet of lumber cut in  1910 passed through mills at centres  of large population where the slab  waste of one-half c ord to every thousand feet of lumber might have been  saved from the incinerators. One  cord of pulpwood ������will produce at  least one-half ton of pulp, so that one  and a quarter million cords of slabs  obtained would have produced at the  lowest estimate six hundred and twenty-five thousand tons of pulp. This  amount is thirty per cent, more than  the total of four hundred and seventy-  five thousand tons of pulp produced  in Canada in 1910. The sooner such  practical economy and utilization of  wood waste commences the longer  will Canada have an adequate supply  of pulpwood.  The Army fiies its flag in 56 coua-,  tries and colonies. It preaches the"  Gospel of free salvation ill' 35 languages, holds 3,000,000 services annually, with a weekly attendance of  5,000,000. It publishes 74 periodicals'  in 24 languages, and has 16,220 missionaries at work at home and abroad.  Wherever men, women ancl cmi-  dren are found in positive need, they  are helped in a practical way by the  Army,  when it is possible-so to do.  We welcome this splendid organization and its leaders to our city; and  know that, for over two decades, they  have done wonders for many thousands who have badly needed their  assistance. Men of all creeds and  opinions should give these worthy  people a glad and welcome'hand. We  wish them God-speed.  ANGELUS.  THE SALVATION ARMY A WORLDWIDE INSTITUTION.

It goes with blessing and help  to all colors, nations, people and  tongueB, with a free and full material  and spiritual salvation, so far as it  is possible so to do.  It haB 138 rescue homes, 146 slum  posts, 17 ex-crlmlnals' homes, 299 food  and shelter depots, 60 labor bureau,  157 factories, 13 farm colonies, and  assists  daily 21,00  poor persons.  This in itself is a showing the  world has never before witnessed, as  the result of one generation and one  organization.

These are large questions, and  it is not reasonable to expect the  government to be prepared to bring  clown a definite policy on suck important questions in so brief a time.  There is ample time to introduce  such matters at the next session. It  is thought by some, however, that the  mention made in Dthe speech of "external affairs" has some reference to  the navy, and that it is more than  likely that before another session is  called Mr. Borden will have had a definite understanding with the Imperial  authorities on this question and will  be in a position to introduce a definite  policy by then.  In any case, it is more than likely  ithat. the session will-be a busy one,  because in addition to the foregoing  the estimates will be passed, which  means a great deal, as there are some  pretty heavy demands on the government from every quarter.  !

It has been suggested that the* ease  wini whicii anyone may become possessed of a machine which will enable  him to go at will to any point through  the air will give an enormous power  to criminals in the "-conduct of their  nefarious designs. This is doubtless  true, and there are many precedents  for such a conclusion. Other scientific developments have been seized  on by evil-disposed persons, and much  i harm has followed.  j Any source of power in nature may  ' be abused, and it is not to be supposed  that the machine which, has provided  a new, powerful, and wholly personal  method of locomotion will be free from  such abuse. One of the functions of  government is tp maintain order, and  if the introduction of aerial navigation may be followed by a new method  of evil doing it will doubtless become  one of the changed details of government to cope with the fact. It is possible that the great difficulty of catching and punishing evil-doers who may  use he new adjunct to their designs  will result in an altogether changed  method of dealiug with crime. Alethods  similar to those which have prevented thousands of deaths from fever and  malaria in the Isthmus of Panama  may M)e discovered for preventing  deaths at the hands of degenerate  human beings, and possibly the only  thing needed for the development of  such methods will be the utter breakdown of the old plan of trying to keep  one man from committing a crime by  punishing some other man. Just,what  such methods may be cannot be determined at the present time, but if  the expenditures incurred ' in maintaining detective departments were diverted to the extermination of slums  and criminal quarters' in cities, and  in the dispersion of the hordes of ignorant aliens from congested localities into the wholesome country,  doubtless much unenacted crime would  be prevented. One of the\ inevitable  results of the spread of population,  due to new and independent methods  of transport, would be the extermination of breeding places of crime, just  as the breeding places of disease-carrying mosquitoes have been removed,  so that the new order of things would  aid in working the cure of the social  disease.���������H.

D. Fowler, Prop.  J  Send Your Shoe Repair Work  to Us  25th and Main St.  Good Work Guaranteed  It was often remarked at the accession of Edward VII that he'was. the  first bearded king of England for nearly 300 years. The ill-fated King  Charles I was his immediate predecessor in this respect, and he came to  the throne in 1625, whereas the late  King succeeded his mother in 1901.  Charles was the last of the kings for  a very long time to. repres ent the  Elizabethan or Shakespearean fashion  of the pointed beard and to wear his  own hair on his head.  Cromwell, the uncrowned King of  England, certainly wore no wig like  the long line of his successors, but  though lie wore his own- hair he wore  it pretty long. Charles I wore a tremendous wig, curled in a hundred  ringlets, but������ the only hair on his face  was a slight moustache. None of his  successors until Edward" VII boasted  even thatv TBoth beards and nious-  taches-went^cleaifout^of^fashionraiid3  James II, William III. all of������the  Georges and William IV were just as  clean shaven as all the rest of their  masculine subjects. There was a time  when a beard had not been seen in  England within living memory.  In wearing a beard Charles I followed the example of his father, James,  and, as he was a Scottish before he  was an English King, he probably followed the fashion of his predecessors  in the northern kingdom, for he was  preceded by two queens and a boy  king, and had no precedent in this  respect to follow, even if he desired  one. Henry VII., nearly 100 years before James I.'s time, had been as much  an innovator in respect to whiskers as  Edward Vll was, for like our late  King, this much married monarch  could look back upon several barefaced predecessors without a break,  for none of the kings from Henry V  to Henry VI wore the least hair upon  their faces.  Prior to Henry V's time, however,  beards might be said to be almost the  rule, and, indeed, from William I in  1066, to the death of Henry IV in  1413 no king sat on the English throne  who was clean shaven. The Conqueror and his two sons and successors were content with a moustache  only, as were Henry II and Richard  II, but Richard the Lion Hearted  would seem to have made the beard  fashionable, for his brother John,  Henry III and the first three Edwards  entirely gave the razor the go-by.   .  Thus, though George V is the first  of his name to wear a beard, Edward  VII was only following the example  of his most famous predecessors.  Thus out oE the 33 Kings who have  ruled in England, the beard wearers  and the clean shaven almost provide  a tie, for there are thirteen of the  former and fourteen of the latter. Six  Kings wore moustaches.  Among the most curious phenomena of New Zealand is its sea volcano.  This is a great mountain of black  scoria S30 feet high, from the top of  which, with much force, rise white  clouds of vapor to a height of fully  2,000 feet. It is not easy travelling  on the island, for in places the black  pebbles of the beach are all^astir with  water boiling up through them���������water  so hot that a misstep might scald the  foot seriously..  At   this   point   the   crater-wall   has  !been broken down almost to the sea  j level, and one may look into tlie" great  i hollow island.    The crater is circular,  i a full mile in diameter, and hemmed  in  b.v walls many  hundred  feet high  and   very   precipitous.      The    crater  floor is an uneven plain  of volcanic  | ash and  scoria,  with many  little fu-  imaroles, or blow-holes, through whicii  i K  hot sulphur vapors come wheezing  out. while every few minutes there is  a smart trembling beneath the feet,  and a low, dull, rolling roar.  The vapor begins to thicken as the  traveller proceeds, and he very soon  finds the cause. He is stopped short  by a great lake of steaming water,  quite filling this end of the crater, and  being, as can be seen when the clouds  lift, nearly half a mile from either  side. The water is too hot comfortably to "apply the hand to it, and is  insupportable either to touch or to  taste because of a strong infusion of  alum and sulphuric acid. On the farther border of the lake is a row t of  violent solfataras (chimneys). They  have built for themselves litle pillarlike cones from ten to thirty feet high  and a yard or two in diameter at the  base, and through these open chimneys they trumpet steam and roaring  sulphuric gases with a violence frightful to contemplate. 7 A demoniacal  screeching and din afflict the traveller's ears, even at a considerable distance.  The water of the lake is of a milky,  opaque cast, not more than ten feet  deep. Lines upon the shore show that  it daily rises and falls slightly with  the tide of tbe sea outside. In many  spots the water boils furiously with  much froth and foam, while stilt its  heat is much below the boiling point  of- 212 Farhrenheit. These are dangerous places for boats; the abundant  air in the water diminishes materially  its buoyancy, and a boat sinks alarmingly low in crossing them.  One expedition landed across the  lake at one of the solfataras nearest  the beach, and proceeded to demolish  it with oars. It was a chimney about  two feet in diameter, clay without,  while within it was lined with-crystals  of sulphur of a beautiful straw yellow,  splashed with vermilion spots. Pushing in the top of this chimney, the  fragments wouid first fall down its  throat and then come flying out into  the air with explosions, that were  startling like a prolonged stentorian  cough.

By day and  night twvo perfectly equipped signal  stations, proudly flaunting Britain's  flag of ownership, sweep the seas  around to a distance of-fifteen miles  on a clear day, instantly reporting the  coming and going of each vessel;  Modem "needle" guns, the finest in  Europe, are installed on all the most  prominent points. They are unreachable from the sea, even as they are  undiscernible, owing to' the skill with  which they are planted and draped to  match the surrounding vegetation,  while huge screens drop automatically before them as each shell is fired.  They have a range of fifteen miles  and could drop shells on Ceuta, in  Africa, opposite, quite comfortably.  One gun weighs 110 tons and is capable of throwing a shell weighing  three-quarters of a ton. In that marvel of engineering under great, difficulties, the galleries, are concealed  guns for every day in the year.  These galleries are divided into  three sections, entry to which is  guarded, while one is closed even to  high officers, containing preserved  stores, munitions of war, rain water  (for Gibraltar has no springs) and a  complete condensing plant���������all calculated to outlast a siege of seven years.  The firing is the most mathematically perfect imaginable. The surrounding waters are mapped out into  squares, upon which certain guns are  kept ready trained, so-, that it is al-  ' most impossible to miss.  City Fire Alarms  19���������C.P.R.

Though, each of those present on  thr: gallery was loyal to Brand's sorrowful- request, it was impossible to  prevent others from seeing that something of exceptional interest was in  progress afloat and on the rock.

Anyhowj  -it was not his affair, and he declined  to trouble his head about Mrs. Van-;  sittart's vagaries.  So the young philosopher lit his  pipe' and delivered a dictum on the  ���������ex.

Indeed; it used to  be a mere indeal of mine, built up from  books. But they exist, and they are1  worth looking for."  He waited, lest perchance the other  man should take the eye thus offered,  but Brand, for the twentieth time, was  poring over the records of the days  jwhich followed the hurricane reported by a former keeper. The American pursed his lips.  . "He has/ had a' bad time with a  .woman once in his life," he mused.  "It must have been Constance's mother, and that is why he doesn't believe  in heredity.

"But the extraordinary thing is that .whilst every  man on board those vessels is thinking like steam how best to get into  tbe lighthouse, we are most desperately anxious to get out of it.   So you  steamed close to the mooring buoy,  which, it will be remembered,, lay in  full view of the kitchen window. Constance gave them a casual glance.  Being versed in the ways of the sea,  she instantly discovered that some  unusual event was astir.  She called her sister's attention to  the manoeuvres of the steamers; one,  the Trinity tender, lay broadside on  to the incoming tide.  - "They are lowering a boat, I do declare," she announced, after they had  watched tbe proceedings for a little  while with growing curiosity.

We are  rather    slow    at learning  many  of  the    much-needed     lessons  bearing upon the relieving of distress  and also of preventing loss to our fellow beings.    Through a friend I have  been  informed    that    the Vancouver  School Trustees have taken the first!  steps in a most important and high-;  spirited  work.    All who have had to!  do with children, either as parents or  teachers,  know  that  there  is  a  percentage of .the young as well as of the  old, who are not very bright.    Tn fact  they are weak-minded and in need ot  special  care from  childhood  forward.  The grades of weak-minded people  are many, and it is difficult to lay  down any hard aud fast line or differentiation, by which we can say these  on this side are mentally sound, and  those on that side are intellectually  weak, and in need of special aid. But  parents, teachers, and ordinary observers know well that there are  many children being sent to the public schools who should never go there.  I am informed that our school authorities have already moved in the  matter, and have one. or .two rooms  provided for the considerate teaching of those children who'are not  bright enough to study alongside of  the average scholar. There should  be a general plan studied out and  adopted, by which al weakminded  children in the Province would be  amply provided for as long as such  care: was needed.  It is too bad that any child should  be forced to go to school and be the  "butt" of their school-fellows, and 'at  times of the teacher.  It, seems to me that the Provincial  Government should be approached on  the matter and asked to consider a  means by. which the weak-minded who  are not altogether imbeciles could be  provided with a suitable school-home,  where they could live and be trained  so as to get the best possible put of  their cramped  lives.  There are scores of children who  are not so mentally unbalanced as to  be sent to what may be called an insane asylum. But they . are weak  enough to require some special attention, such as their parents and the  present schools are unable to furnish.  I recal one case where a simple-  minded boy, good-natured and kind,  .was so easily led that before he came  to ; the age of sixteen he was destroyed for life. He is likely to be  ranked with the depraved and criminal class, and chiefly because he was  forced, to go to the public schools  where he never should have gone. 1  know another boy who is about the  mid-teehs, and who is not bright. In  a little while he will be so badly influenced by bright, but bad, smart boys,  that the future of his life will be  black and terribly sad. Parents  naturally cling to their children, and  resent the suggestion that any of  their offspring are mentally unfit or  unbalanced. And even when they  know and admit the fact, they are  helples to' assist, as they have no  means provided. Now, if there were  a suitable home-school, and the proper appliances to train to best advantage all who need such aid, there  would be many such children found  throughout the- province���������and-many  burdened hearts would rejoice.  Should the Government be inclined  to make preparation, such as here  suggested, it would need to have as  part of the basic plan a determination to care for such persons as long  as might be necessary. This might  mean the whole of the, lifetime ot  quite a number. Even so, they could  be,trained to such trades and employment as would enable them to practically earn their own living. In this  way their lives could be developed to  the best advantage, and much joy  would come to them and their parents  in addition to saving many of them  from total and early ruin.  If these views, in some reasonable  manner, appeal to others, it might be  well for them to give their opinions  as best they can.  CEDAR COTTAGE AND  SOUTH VANCOUVER  Communications respecting items of  news, 'meetings, etc., should be addressed to "Western. Call," P. O. Box  10, Cedar Cottage, and must be received by Tuesday to ensure publication iii next issue.  On Saturday afternoon the Cedaif  Cottage fire brigade gave a very successful demonstration. They turned  out about 2 p. m. in a smart businesslike manner and car?? down the  streets at a brisk rate at some of.the  stops, playing streams of water on imaginary fires. Fortunately Cedar Cottage can depend upon a .uniformly  good pressure of water, and its brigade is capable of dealing with auy  outbreak.  Mountain View Methodist Church  held a season of great rejoicing this  week at the services connected with  the dedication of their new church.  Nearly a year ago a similar joyful occasion was celebrated over the completion of the building then just completed, and within two months of this  opening this structure was completely  burned to the ground. With great  zeal, however, the congregation set to  work once more and now on the old  site, corner of Wilson and Home  Road, a far superior building has been  erected. The present church is brick  in place of wood, and will cost about  $60,000, including a contemplated annex.  A vastly crowded congregation attended the dedicatory services last  Sunday, friends and neighbors of the  denomination being present.  The dedicatory service was conducted by the Rev., A. E. Roberts, president of the B. C. conference. At the  afternoon service the Rev. G. D. Ireland of the Westminster Avenue Presbyterian Church, and Rev. Merton  Smith of Knox Congregational Church,  addressed the children and parents.  In the evening the Rev. J. C. Switzer,  B.A., assisted by the Rev. R. F. Still-  man, also preached. to crowded congregations.  The new building is thoroughly up:  to-date, containing all the most modern features of comfort and convenience in the. form of church aud Sun  day school construction, including parlors, library, class rooms and banqueting hall.  South Vancouver school .teachers  are agitating for an increase in salaries arid at the. last 'meeting of the  board a deputation from'the Teachers'  Association apeared to support their  claim. The chairman assured the applicants that the board had already  given the supervisor instructions toi  draw up a schedule on a more liberal  scale.  LOUGHEED ii CO.

According to the reports of. the  trustees, the deputation to Victoria  were favorably received by the government, and Dr. Young assured them  the government were willing to go  just as far as the municipality did.  For instance, next year the board proposed to ask for a by-law of $250,000,  and the government would in the event  of that being passed, allow the board  one-quarter of the amount raised, as  a grant.  Yet another candidate for Reeve is  probable in the person of Mr. G. A.  Stevens, school trustee, who is said  to have received a petition from  friends urging: him to run as, a candidate.  Mr. Stevens' last attempt at municipal honors was some three years since  when he was ..in a large majority in  seeking a seat as councillor for Ward  -Two.

Several members  were also enrolled and the chief fully  explained tQ all the details of the duties required.
