And'yet  Jjknueli damage is done thereby.  An illustration may be helpful to get an idea  lout of my head, an idea that has been struggling  for utterance for some time.  Here. then, is'the illustration.    Men. many of  llhem. are now grumbling because there is no provision for the erection of a new city hall.    They  are. in sonic cases, talking against tht! mayor.   And  It hey blame him because in two years he has not  firianaged to have a suitable hull constructed.   In  |lhis they do him an  injustice.    Those who keep  [close tab ou civic matters know that Mayor Tay-  }lor did his best to have an up-to-date steel structure built upon the present site.   He was not supported.   Nay, his efforts were opposed and he was  luitvoted.     Hence,   those   who  talk   against  the  ['oayor on this score do him an injustice. ',  Again, other men who are desirous of seeing  .roper accommodation iu the shape of a city hall.  (dame Alderman Ramsay for not doing more in  )his direction.   lie is and has been chairman of  jnance. and he should have been the first to move  the  direction of finding the money for this  [uuch needed building.   All agree that the present  ^ne is a disgrace.  However, here again there is condemnation un-  Inerited. It is a fact that Alderman Ramsay did,  Ivith his usual vigor, make au attempt to get  "mder way the machinery for providing a hrfge  id suitable hall for civic purposes. He, as in the  )ther case, found positive opposition, and felt  [preed to let the matter drop for a time at least.  I have given two illustrations. Here follows  ie idea above referred to. Either carelessly, or  morantly, or of set purpose, onr publie men are  jo often most unjustly and cruelly, misrepre-  ented.  ) The most faithful of our public-spirited men are  times driven from office, and are forced to let  lie larger affairs of public weal go neglected, just  lecause many eminent citizens purposely or  thoughtlessly misrepresent them, even while they  Lre rendering splendid service.  This misrepresentation goes on in all directions.  Te differ on small matters, and talk of our differ-  ^ccs until' the mole-hill becomes ji mountain,  ten the tongues wag and bite and slander. Men  io differ in public matters, too often make the  ffferences personal, and-a quarrel ensues. We  L*ea thoughtless and heartless lot. At times I  inclined to think that Ave Anglo-Saxons are  worst kind of grumblers, y  kVe do not in our hearts try to hurt and cause  Kn, but nevertheless we do this very thing, and  J do it often.  FA kindly spirit in criticism, yea. even jn our  [dinary grumbling, would be of great advantage,  hill of us who have tlie fault-finding disease.

I  Tlie first official act of tlie new parliament at Ottawa was the election of speaker.  Tlio members had been sworn in at noon on the J Sth November, and at three  o'clock were called to the Senate chamber, whe-ve the nana I formal proclamations  were read and the Coinmous were directed to elect a speaker, which they proceeded  at once to do in the Commons' chamber.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier was greeted with hearty cheers from the Opposition  benches when he entered, shortly after which tbe Premier-elect, Hon. R. L. Borden, entered amid a great burst of applause, whicii lasted for some minutes. Immediately he rose and in a brief speech proposed the name of T. S. Sproule as  speaker of the House, seconded by Hon. Geo. Foster.  hi making the nomination, the Hon. Premier referred to the long service of  j\Ir. Sproule, whom, he said, had been a member of the .House almost continuously  since Confederation. lie also spoke of his special ability because of his universal  recognition as an authority on rules and because of his high character and eminent  fairness as a man. At the conclusion of this brief introductory speech, the clerk  read the motion, when Sir Wilfrid Laurier rose and during a speech which was  remarkable ony for its bitter sarcasm, succeeded in-accelerating the rapidly growing antipathy with which he has been viewed in recent years.  After stating that he had no objection to Dr. Sproule nor to the remarks of  the Premier regarding him, he proceeded to criticize the procedure of electing a  new speaker, claiming that a speaker should remain in office for life. "To'this no  one particularly objected, viewing it onlv as an opinion, but then.the Hon. gentleman proceeded to stir up racial and religious objection to Dr. Sproule, of whom a  moment before he had said he had the highest regard. Sir Wilfrid said he was  surprised that the government, especially the Catholic members of it, should have  chosen a man of whom the Nationalist papers of Quebec had said such hard things.  He sought to raise the race feelings and religious differences of the members. In  this, however, he signally failed. The French-Canadian members almost unanimously deprecating this unwise and unkind attack.  To the credit of the members from Quebec it must be said that they showed no  sign of* sympathy with Sir Wilfrid in this respect, but seemed wholly" desirous of  dealing with the matter in a magnanimous and patriotic spirit.  Mr. Borden briefly replied, and aptly summed up Sir Wilfrid's speech as  "sentiments unworthy of the gentleman who uttered them," whicii remark was  greeted with thunderous applause, "and,", added the Premier, "if any member  objects to the election of Dr. Sproule he now lias the opportunity of saying so."  This closed the incident, and Dr. Sproule was inducted in his new office amid a  burst of applause from members of both races and creeds.  It was clearly apparent that Sir Wilfrid Laurier utterly failed in his subtle  and veiled attempt to introduce discord in the ranks of the government. Itsis possible that this is an intimation of the line of attack of Sir Wilfrid upon the government, and that he will .endeavor to introduce suggestions of this kind and again  win back the allegiance of Quebec. His next step will likely be by the introduction  of an amendment to the speech from the throne, when it is expected he will make a  motion on the navy question, by whieh it is intended if possible to rouse the opposition of the French-Canadian Conservatives. There is no doubt, however, but  that.it will-be .equally unsuccessful, as his attack on Dr.���������������������������Sproule, as the Quebec  members seem to have every confidence in the government, and exhibit far. less  anxiety than .they did when Sir Wilfrid was Premier.  ?  ��������� ������������������������!<���������   ������.������"������-������������������.������.���������>"���������������~  ^-������4^^.4^^4.M.������4������4"4"4'*.  ............ ... ������ ^.+-..+-++^.....���������...���������., ���������������,....������,.. .������. ������..������.<..������.^-<|..������-���������������^������.^M<������������M������.^..t.^-������^M������.,.

Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.S.'  Perhaps the simplest way to define the "Continental Sabbath" is to say it is au unkept, dishonored day.. As one travels oyer Europe he finds  many interesting things,- and amongst them he  discovers that the Sabbath Day is lost. "Why this  is n fact mieht be hard to explain, but it is a fact  that the majority of Continental nations do not  give'very much consideration to this day, more  than to other days of the week.  Tn the British Empire and the United States,  the Sabbath Day is kept, by law at least, as a holy  day.  There can be no,gainsaying the statement that  in Vancouver tho men who keep open shop, and  defy the law of the Lord in relation tb one of the  most important commandments, are the men from  Europe in general. They are foreigners for the  most part at that. And strangely enough they  are chiefly from South Europe.  It is time these men had such a lesson that they .  will be apt to remember that they are in Canada,  in a land that in the main delights to honor God's  Day of Rest. Personally, I-am greatly pleased  that the Attorney-General has turned his atten-  tion to this matter in a concrete way. He has in  the past few years made a name for himself along  certain definite lines. One of these is this: What  he decides to do, he undertakes to do well and to  do fearlessly. This has stood him in good steady  and is bound to help him,in the future. . N  Our citizens, the vast majority, desire a quiet  Sabbath, and to mark their gratitude to the Almighty for His many blessings of a national and  personal character. Besides, they owe it to their  children, that the God of Heaven and the Father  of man should he recognized Jin the concerns of  life. Hence they desire and demand a holy and  honored Sabbath. ''  This is.exactly what the Lord's Day Alliance is  aiming at, backed up by all tlie best elements of  the community. Hence, as we see that the Attorney-General of British Columbia is placing the  machinery within the reach of those who would  use it to keep the Sabbath, so far as closed shops  are concerned, we are delighted.  Let the law-breakers find that the Christian and  God-honoring majority rule in this and other matters, and we. will have a more upright nation,  better honTes, and iv more delightful community  in'which to live and in which to raise our children.  However, it is a cause, of concern to see men for  the sake of money or fame, or both, joining hands  with these Sabbath-breaking, rude Continentals to  defy the authorities, and to condemn .the'.laws of  the laud.7 Mild words arenot-strong, enough to  show how these men should be despised. By their  aid the British law. which has been the pillar of ���������  national safety, is bedaubed and belittled so far  as to lead these foreigners from Europe to imagine  that our people are but the tools and followers  of the' cleverest and most unprincipled lawyers.  I would be glad to know which man is the more  ^despi.cabl"er1the^m'an=wh'o~bre'alvs~a^iaw���������anid="com-���������  mits a crime, or the man who shields him, doing  so for money or fame, or both. The Continental '  who is enabled to break the Sabbath D.*iy and defy  the good sense of the citizens of Vancouver by the  alone means of a clever lawyer's interference and  aid. may for ������the moment gladly pay his legal  abettor, but, in his heart he'must despise him as  all honest, upright citizens undoubtedly do. <-  Let me put two kinds of men before the reader  One is a coarse, ignorant, uncultured man, and  at times brutal. Hejsommits ,-i crime, or at'least  wilfully breaks the laws of the ,land. The other  is a college-trained, cultured, polished man. He  is specially posted on the best writers of law and  eciuity. He sees the other daily, and of set purpose, breaking the"well-known.laws, for the sake  Of gain, lie sees that man brought before the.  court for punishment, and at once gives his best  assistance'-to" protect the law-breaker, and to enable him to continue to despise the laws of the  country. Now, I ask a plain question.- Which  man is the more .despicable? Both arc at the  same kind of work. One is the first transgressor,  and the other conies along and protects him ,in  his evil course.  Both are despising and belittling the laws, and'  both, are doing it for the sake of gain.   One'does  it for gain only, but the other aims at money and  notoreity, or fame.   He would pose as a great  criminal lawyer.  I wonder how-many noted criminal lawyers are  legal criminals. The good sense of the community  and the indignation of al! who stand for righteousness in.the nation should make it so hot for these  accomplices that they will not readily rush to the  help of every scoundrel who boldly defies all the  best-elements and laws of a people and nation^  We thank; the Attorney-General for giving \;s  a chance to shut up the shops of those who Ii ave  no regard for that which is 'most sacred to our  people. Our laws despised, what have we? Why  only a parody of law, such as obtains in the  States. Soon every man wouid be forced to carry  a revolver, as judges, preachers and thieves do in  America. Let us make these men shut up shop  on the Sabbath, and thus far a gain is made towards a better and more righteous condition; of  all concerned.  j v7  ' '��������� v .>;  ; . ������>;��������� 2  THE WESTERN CALL.

The season has been a" dry one and  the water has been low, so low in fact  that this autumn has seen the fleets  entering the canals with greatly reduced cargoes and at unusually low  speed. The result is that tons of  freight which should have reached  tidewater long ere this is still on the  docks at the lake ports awaiting transportation. Now, it will either have to  come by rail, a very expensive prp-  cedure, or lie up for the balmy spring  of 1912. Thousands upon thousands  of dollars have been lost as a-result;  and, unfortunately, the loss burns  doubly in for it might have been prevented.  It is said that unfavorable winds and  the dry summer are responsible for  the low depth of water. This, to a  certain extent, is true. There is another reason, however, in the various  power developments which have  sprung up along the river. These companies becoming greedier and greedier ��������� as the years ,go by, drain the  waters from the St. Lawrence to turn  their wheels and it has now become  apparent that they are taking so much  that the levels of the channels are  becoming affected. And not content  with what they already have, some of  the promotors of these power schemes  are asking the Government to he allowed to divert more.  The Old Government was almost  reckless in giving away these concessions, but with the arrival of the Hon.  P. D. Monk as head of the Public  Works Department a change is about  to take place. While in opposition to  the detriment of navigation and now  that he sits at the trigger himself At  it evident that the old'policy is about  to be blown tb smithereens much to  the advantage of the Dominion. Navigation interests are paramount on the  St. Lawrence, he says, and navigation  interest will have top call, first, las,  and all the time while he is at the  helm.  would.be necessary to give the income.

This is tlie demand  for pennies that has come from many  western7; points -where copper coin  heretofore has been regarded with disfavor and has been "practically unused., More than 10,000,000 pennies  have been started on , westward  travels within the past few weeks, and  it is said that the demand continues  unabated. The generally accepted explanation of this development among  the bankers here is that the rising  cost of living is causing many families  to scrutinize the outgo of small coins  more carefully than formerly and that  the extension of department stores  with their odd figure prices has also  contributed to the wider use of the  small coins. Montreal is said to be  the greatest user of pennies in the  country and to require about 100,-  000,000 of- these coins for ordinary  uses. The number in circulation is  greatest around the holiday season  and low ebb is reached in midsummer  when millions of pennies are stacked  up in the'banks and sub-treasuries^  Subscription: $1.00 per year, 50 cents  per six months; 25 cents per ;three  months. ���������   .

Send Your Slice Repair Work  tolls  25th ond Main St.  Good Work Guaranteed  "Is it possible for a female wage-  earner to save, from her monthly wage  an amount which in tbe aggregate will  be sufficient to provide her with an  income from the time her earning days  are over?" was recently the subject  of an interesting discussion at a Women's Club, and the conclusion come to  was that if the wage-earner were "earning less than $500 a year this would  be extremely difficult. For the purpose of illustration, the period of accumulation was assumed to., be from  23 to^O, and the amount of capital  required $6,000, in order to yield an  income of $300 a year, which was considered to be the minimum amount on  which she'"could maintain herself with,  comfort and respectability. All this  may be quite true. But there is another _plan _of Jnvestment of which the  ladies had evidently not heard, namely  the Canadian Government Annuities  system, which is not only absolutely  safe, but which will give a much larger return for a much, smaller investment, and larger it may be said than  any other plan available will give as  a means of making provision for old  age. 7.  For example, if a woman of 23 were  to deposit with the Government yearly  the ^um of $39.24 until she was 60,  which she could do by weekly or  monthly instalments if she preferred,  or a total of $1451.88 only, the Government would pay her $300 a year or  $75 every three months so long as she  might live from and after 60. If she  died, before attaining that age, the  total payments made with three per  cent, compound interest would be refunded to her heirs. If she died at 58  Jthey would receive $2,425.77, or $1,052;-  37 more than she had paid in up to  that time.  If she had no one dependent upon  her and was concerned about herself only, she could secure under the  "B" plan the same quarterly income  of $75 for an: annual payment of $29.67,  or for a total paid in of $1,097,79���������a  yearly return for "life no matter how  long that may be, of nearly thirty per  cent, of,,the sum invested. o  -Mark the enormous difference; on  the one band she would require.at 60  acapital of ������6,000 invested at five per  cent, to yield her an income of $300,  with all the. accompanying anxiety of  making safe investments, while on  the, other hand she could provide the  same income, for. about one-fifth of  the purchase money spread in easy  payments over the accumulating period.

"No. He was a mere acquaintance."
. "Odd thing," ruminated Pyney "It
has just occurred to me that she resembles your daughter,���your elder
daughter,���not so much, in face as in
style. Same sort of graceful figure,
only a trifle smaller."
"Such coincidences often happen in
the human family. For instance, you
are not wholly unlike Enid."
"Holy gee!" said Pyne, "I'm too run
down to stand flattery."    'v
"Likeness is often a matter of environment. Characteristics, mannerisms, the subtle distinctions of class
jand social rank, soak in through the
tekin quite as sensibly as they are conferred by heredity. Take the ploughman's son and rear him in a royal palace, turn the infant prince into a peasant, and/who shall say, when they

The college-bred youth had not entered into any general conversation
With Brand before. He had the tact
now to conceal his astonishment at
the manner of his friend's speech.
"You fling heredity to the .winds,
then?" he asked.
Brand rose to his feet, as waa his

"Thank God, yes!" he cried.

the chortling of the wind.

on an oil-skin coat.

them���death . at once extraordinary
and ghastly. No tyrant of the Middle
Ages, with all its paraphernalia for
wringing truth or lies out of cringing
wretches, had devised such a fate as
threatened if the inconstant sea should
:choose to render the reef altogether
unapproachable for many days. Yet,
if help came, he and those dear to him
were already steeped in unavoidable
notoriety, bringing in its train certain
vague disabilities which he had striven to avoid for over twenty years.
And all tliis because one fierce gale,
out of the many he had endured,
sprang into being at a moment when
his mates were incapacitated and his
daughters happened to pay him a surprise visit.
"It is an insane freak of fortune,"
Jie muttered, "so incomprehensible, so
utterly out of focus with common
events, that if I were a superstitious
man,' I should regard it as betokening
the approach of some great epoch in
my life. Surely a merciful Providence
would not bring my girls here to subject them to the lingering torture of
hunger and thirst. I must uot think
of it further.. That way lies madness."
There was at least one other troubled soul on the_ rock which divined
some sinister portent in the storm.
Mrs. Vansittart, even at this moment,
was staring into the black void with
questioning eyes.
He resolutely threw back his head
as if he would hurl into outer darkness the gibbering phantom which
whispered these words of foreboding.
Although the lamp needed no attention just then, he climbed to the trimming stage merely to find relief in
mechanical action. He carefully examined the adjustment, and, to judge
how the weather was shaping, went
out into the gallery to look at the distant lights.
u The three quick flashes of the Seven
Stones Lightship were very clear. That
was a good sign. The wind came from
that quarter and, blustering though it

"Listen."    ���'��� :   :, -7-   , ���"
He glajjced up at the glass dome,

they looked like spray, but Pyne
shouted   gleefully7
"Is It rain?" 7

With a whoop, Pyne vanished.! He
met Constance oh the stairs, coining
to see her father before she stretched
her weary-limbs on the hard floor of
the kitchen.

There will be a daily celebration of the Holy Communion and  evening services at 8 p.m. on every  day except Wednesday. The purpose  is to deepen the  spiritual life of the community and  to pray that all may be moved to give  as God has prospered them towards  the extension of the church, which is  so urgently needed. The rector of St.  Saviour's, who is well known as an  original and forceful preacher, is also  a great advocate of direct and Scriptural giving. These special services  are to be regarded as a somewhat novel way of what is popularly known as  "raising money for the church." Novel in these days, but well known in  the times of the Apostles, who did  not depend upon bazaars and socials  to carry on the work of Christ's  church.  'All earnest Christians are cordially  invited to attend these services.  No collection will be'taken, but an  opportunity will be given to everyone  to contribute in proportion as God  has prospered him.  L. O. L.  The regular fortnightly meeting of  L. 0.

The court martial at Halifax has at  ready found one victim for the disaster  to the Niobe oft Cape Sable last July,  in the person of Lord Allisten Graham,  who wat officer of the watch up to a  quarter of an hour before the ship  stranded on the rocks. From a naval  viewpoint, from the technical viewpoint of marine navigation, the decision may be quite correct. The British  admiralty board is rather strict and  severe in such cases, as may be imagined. But the average Canadian  cannot help feeling that the whole affair has been one for which the country should be heartily ashamed. Lord  Graham is virtually made a scapegoat for an amatuer naval department's rank blunders and a resume of  the facts will show that the officials  of the Niobe were practically ordered  to go to dangerous localities whenever  j the presence of the ship as an attraction to the local celebrations being  held at tho time was deemed necessary.  .The .Niobe,., a_ train i n&* shl p.^was^sent  and disappointments.

But before Mr.  Brodeur fulfilled his promise he had  left for the Imperial Conference and  the celebration approaching- Mr. Law  wrote to Commander C. D. Roper and  Mr. J. P. Ling of the naval department  at Ottawa on the matter. Both these  officials refused to send the Niobe to  Yarmouth, as a civic attraction. In H.his  the officials were justified, as it meant  the disarrangement of the whole schedule of training exercises on board the  vessel.    But  Mr.  Law persisted  and  again requested that the ship be sent.  Once more the department refused  And once again Mr. Law came back by  letter requesting that the department  cable Mr. Brodeur in London and remind him of his promise. Quite rightly the department refused to do anything like that.    .  Mr. Law, whose prestige as a political advertiser was evidently in danger  among his townfoik, thereupon fell  back upon the hope of the Maritime  Provinces when something was wanted���������Hon. Mr. TFielding. Mr. Fielding  was in, London, but he cabled the naval  department at Ottawa asking that Mr.  Law's request be granted.

Mr. Law, encouraged by this  acquiesence,  got after    Mr.   Brodeur  it .would be impossible to carry out  tbe training objects of the vessel It the  visiting of the ship to ports where celebrations were being held waa tb be*  come a recognized custom.  Notwithstanding the objections of  the qualified officials of the department, Mr Brodeur confirmed his promise to MrT Law and on July 24 the  Niobe reached Yarmouth. The men'  were landed to participate in the parade, some 4,000 visitors inspected (he-  ship, and a grand ball took place and  other entertainments were given with  the \essel as a center of social activity.

As the springtime approached nothing in the weather indicated the return to seed time, much less of harvest, Snows,, heavy rains and . cold  winds prevailed incessantly, and during the entire season the sim arose  each morning as though in a/eloud  of smoke, red and rayless, "shedding  little light or warmth: and setting at  night as behind a thick cloud of va-  HARDWOODS.  Canada is dependent for its lumber  supply on the softs wods of the forest  much more than is the United States,  as seen from the 1910 Forest Products  report compiled by the Dominion Forestry rBanch and shortly to be'published. Of the 1910 Canadian lumber cut  amounting to nearly five billion feet,  only one-twentieth consisted of hardwoods or broad-leafed trees, wotth  barely five million dollars; on the'  other hand almost one-quarter of the  lumber cut in the United States con-  f  por, leaving hardly a trace of its hav- had far greater hardwood forests than  ing passed over the face of the earth.  Tlie frost never went off thetground  until about the.last of May. The farmers planted their crops, but the seed'  would hardly sprout and when at last  it came to the surface there was not  warmth enough to cause anything to  grow. During the month of June  young birds, were frozen to death in  their nests and so great was their  destruction that for at least three  years after very few birds visited the  colder parts of the northern States.  The woods and forests seemed deserted liy them. ' Small fruit such as the  juneberry ripened and rotted on the  trees in the forests because of no birds  to eat them. .'������������������".-  Crops that required warmth, like  corn, generally failed to mature and  only here and there1 in a few places  that seemed especially protected did  the. ear ripen. The people .after repeated hopes of a change .in the wear  ther settled down in almost despair.  Large'spots appeared on the f ace ���������of  the sun, as seen through the smoky  atmosphere; distinctly visible with the  naked eye; frosts prevailed every  month the whole year, and almost  daily, and in the few places where corn  ripened was the only supply of seed  for the next year, and it'was held at  an exceedingly high figure with now  and then an ^exception.  ARE FARM LANDS TOO CHEAP?  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 seyen and a half million  dollars. Thus the value of the hardwoods imported into Canada 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 or yellow 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 can be done to  improve the resources of Canada by  the elminination of wood wasteland  particularly by thes development of the  small wood lots of Ontario, Southern  Quebec and the Maritifae provinces,  should be done with all possible  speed.

That is not a bad showing when one  stops to consider the fact that the  great mass of this gold travels without any particular safeguard and  without any armed men sitting about  while it is in transit. It is a very  good guarantee that the men of Alaska and of the Seattle waterfront are  about as honest as the rest of the  world.  Of course we have a "gold robbery"  every year or so. The men who have  the opportunities to put their hands  upon the vast quantities of yellow  metal which comes down from the  north every year would not be human  if some of them did not yield to temptation. And these men certainly contain some red blooded humans in the  list.  But the proportion o( gold which  has actually passed into the possession of and been retained by thieves  has been so small as to actually make  the men responsible for the safe passage of the gold from the camps in  the north to the assay office in Seattle  almost criminally careless.  In the Eastern States when it becomes necessary to transport a large  sum of money from one point to another it is escorted through the streets  from the bank to the, railway station  by men armed with repeating rifled  sitting upon the chests in which the  money is securely locked.  In Alaska the gold is melted into  bricks by the banks in the financial  centres of the mining camps. ThesJ  bricks are placed in rough wooden  boxes. The boxes are placed in the  purser's room upon a river steamer  on the Yukon. Prom there they are  transferred to a baggage car on the  ed upon an express wagon to be  transferred to the, assay office.  During most of the Journey from the  gold fields of the Yukon to the assay office in Seattle they have had  only the casual attention of one man  as their guard. This man may or  railway at Whitehorse. At Skagway  they are again transferred to a purser's room and in Seattle tbey are load-  may not have a revolver in his pocket  and he must eat and sleep occasion-'  ally. During those times the gold is  left, almost entirely without a guardian.  , ,  It is a strange thing that more of it  has not been stolen,, and as we say it  speaks volumes for the general honesty of the people who come into contact  with the great quantity of this precious metal that less than a thousandth part of the shipments of gold  from Alaska to Seattle have been  tampered with.  "Old Nigger" has perhaps a record  over all other horses. This horse has  been continually in the lumber business for over 30 of his 33 years of life  and has never gone a week without  having his harness on. For three recent years he took the first prize, a  blue ribbon, at the annual work-horse  parade, and during his entire service  has never had an accident!  "Old Nigger" belongs to the Lake-  wood Lumber Company. He was turned over with the rest of the property  when the plant was taken over from  the old O. T, Lapham Company.^ Some  of the men about the mill remember  him when he was a young horse. That  was when they were married. These  men now have grown families and  grandchildren, yet "Old Nigger" is  still in the harness drawing a yard  truck every day. His hair is turning  gray in some places, but at all times  he responds to the work in a more reliable way than most horses. When  his driver is through with him for a  time he throws the reins over "Nigger's" back and the old horse walks  around to the shade of a lumber pile  and waits to be called again. Not  once has he ever struck a pile or  agon when traveling without a driver.  Money couldn't buy "Old Nigger."  "WHEN   THE   FROST   18   ON   THE  PUNKIN."  (James Whitcomb Riley.  LATHS IN CANADA���������1910.  Despie the use of metal lath and  patent methods of interior finish,  wooden lath production amounted to  eight hundred and flft>-two million  pieces, worth one million nine hundred and forty-three thousand dollars  in Canada during 1910. This information has been obtained from statistics  compiled by the Dominion Forestry  Branch, which show that nearly thirty  million more lath were produced in  1910 than in the year before, but that  owing to a decrease in the price per  thousand, the total value of the industry was thirty-five thousand dollars less. Two-fifths of the total was  cut in Ontario,] which province increased its 1909 production by fifty-  seven million or nearly twenty per  cent. ... New Brunswick, the second  province in importance, increased its  proportion of the total from one-fifth  to one-quarter, by cutting sixty-two  million more than last year. The production of laths in Quebec and British  Columbia during 1910 was considerably more than in 1909, amounting  with Ontario and New Brunswick to  ninety-four per cent, of the total. The  remaining five provinces cut smaller  amounts, and with the exception of  Alberta, each showed a decrease from  the amount produced in 1909. The  average price of laths in 1910 was  $2.28 per thousand, or 16 cents less  than in 1909. The price varied considerably between the different provinces, British' Columbia laths being  $1.66 pep thousand, while .in Prince  Edward Island the price was $2.67.���������  Government Press Bureau.

'General satisfaction was expressed with the new  building and practical proof of this  was rendered in the collection, whicii  amounted to close on three figures.  On Tuesday evening Rev.

The liquor license fee came up for  consideration at last council meeting I upon  on Saturday and was ultimately fixed  a  t$1.00  per annum.    There  is    only  j one  hotel  in   South  Vancouver,    the  VGladst'one   'Hotel,-'  on      Westminster  . Road. ' A somewhat lengthy discussion  ) arose   on   the   matter,   during   which  j Councillor   Dickinson   expressed   him-  ,'sel. fas being opposed to the payment  of any fee,  as he claimed the municipality' would be deriving a revenue  from a trade that annually .destroyed';  hundreds of homes and filled'the asylums   and   hospitals   and   prisons ' to  overflowing.      The    councillor's    eloquent arguments,  however,  were  not  entertained by the rest of the council,  and the nefy liquor by-law was then  given its first reading.  Councillors Dickinson and Burgess  appointed to wait on the government  superintendent of roads, with regard  ;to the government grant for municipal trunk roads, reported the cheque  for $20,000 due to the municipality for  Main street, Fraser street, and Westminster Road had already been authorized for payment.  The Collingwood fire brigade sue  cessfully demonstrated their usefulness on Tuesday last week when Mr.  AVilton's beautiful home at Collingwood  West was saved from the flames. The  accidental overturning of ' 'a lamp  about 7:30 p.m. started the blaze and  in a few moments the fire had so rapidly spread that the occupants had to  quit the building. The arrival of the  brigade some ten minutes later speedily altered the outlook and by some  smart work the fire was extinguished  without the loss of the building. The  damage is estimated at about $500 arid  is not covered by insurance!  Fire Chief Jordan is now the happy  possessor of a light wagon, which is  to be stationed at the chief fire hall  next to the municipal hall. This is  expected i. to facilitate his appearance  at local fires as at present all the apparatus has to be drawn by hand and  with present road conditions progress  is not always as rapid as the necessity requires.  <~������^:.^i~>.:~x.<.<-j~;~i..>.;..m~^;-.m~:^x������;������ **���������  **********************  Cedar Cottage flre hall was the  scene of some very interesting climbing feats on Saturday, to test the skill  and endurance of the recently formed  volunteer brigade under Captain  Smith.

The pupils of the Lord  Selkirk school had requested permission from the Board for the loan of  the school for a concert, the proceeds  to be devoted to the purchase of ah  encyclopedia for the use of the principal. This started the discussion and  Supervisor Graham mentioned that he  had noticed the lack of the reference  library so essential for intelligent  teaching Of certain subjects. Chairman Robinson estimated the cost of  libraries for all the schools, at 7f 1,000  and as the government grant for the  purpose is at present $50 only, it was  decided to approach the Education Department at Victoria on this matter.  Government Xnspector'Gillis reported  on the condition of the schools and  stated that the children as a rule were  too slow in grading.' This he attributed to the fact that many of the teachers were young girls fresh from the  normal schools.  Supervisor Graham supported this  view and was instructed to procure  more competent teachers in several  instances, the secretary being ordered  to give 30 days' notice to each of the  teachers named, that they should tender their resignations at an early  date.  Chairman Robinson, Trustees Stevens and Whelpton and Mr. Graham,  supervisor, are now in Victoria this  week to interview the government on  various matters. Amongst other matters are compulsory education, increased school grant, owing to the growing  attendance in D. L. 301 district, and  for authority to vest the supervisor  with similar powers to those e possessed by the city superintendent of  schools.  Brown Bros, were awarded the contract for laying put the grounds of  Carlton schools with trees, shrubs, etc.,  at a cost of $739.50.;  The people of Mountain View Methodist church are to  be congratulated  the   successful   completion   ��������� ot  their new  and   commodious     Sunday  School room.  About eleven months ago they opened a similar building, standing ou the  same foundation as that upon .which,  the ..present building "stands,, but after  eight wesks occupancy, it was burned.  With a courage and devotion to purpose truly heroic tliey-v irnmecliutely  set to work to rebuild and'tlie present  handsome and , stately . edifice is: the  outcome oi: their effort. : . ' _ '.' . ���������  . The. building is brick, with '. stone  trimmings,, and designed to be the  Sunday school room of the .church,  yet to be used when;, tho needs of the  congregation shall demand it. It has  some twenty-four class rooms, library,  auditorium, vestibules and parlor and  has a full sized basement, fourteen  feet ceiling, parlor . and banqueting  hall and Avell equipped kitchen, furnace room, cloak room, etc.  The building is well lighted and  heated with steam and has every provision for comfort and convenience in  the prosecution.of the work for whicii  ii was built.  With the burning of the former  building, there was a loss of. sixteen  to seventeen thousand dollars, pr rtly  covered by insurance, and to undertake rebuilding at a still larger outlay  required a courage and confidence in  the future of that part of the city  truly heroic.
