All electors who value self-respect and independence of action should support Mayor Baxter.  A Second Term for' Batfer^H^^       Good  Vote for the Mayor who is not Afraid to Stand for a Clean City,  The name of Mayor T. S. Baxter is on everybody's lips. Of him as a man  and Chief Magistrate of Vancouver it would be difficult to eulogize too much. V������e  newspaper men know that he has little interest, personally, fornewspaper notoriety. He is pre-eminently a man of action who has the art of doing things, and  who seldom makes mistakes, his judgment being of a high order.      .  When talking is needed he readily measures up to the occasion. He is a  clear thinker, a fluent speaker and reaches quick but sound conclusions, carrying his hearers with jiim. His experience as a school teacher, with a practical  knowledge of business, and being a lawyer of exceptional qualifications, together  with his warm sympathies for the laboring classes, arising bufeof his hard toil in  early manhood, amply fit him for the position he has filled for one year, and to  which he is invited again by the majority^ of the best men of Vancouver.  But for his watchfulness, painstaking efforts and schooled ability our  city would have'been in a much worse condition financially today than it is.  T. S. Baxter, with his Council, did much to prevent a financial disaster  during 1913. Some glaring mistakes or carelessness on part of the leaders of  preceding terms placed a heavy burden, upon Mayor Baxter's shoulders. He  rose to the emergency, met the difficulty fearlessly, and without display or  blowing of trumpets, saved the city's credit and put it upon a safe and sane basis  forl914. -'���������; ���������   ,  Mayor Baxter's re-election is relied upon by such as are vitally interested in the future growth and permanent prosperity of Vancouver. Success to  him.  He is a peerless leader and should Jje returned by acclamation.  CANDIDATES FOR KM  We have the pleasure of presenting to the  electors of Vancouver a large, and worthy list of  commendable aspirants to the positions of trust  and honor in this city.

Friday; January 9; 1914  I? I  WHAT NEW YEAR  WILL BRING CITY  Mr. H. H. Stev������ns, M.P., Outlines  the   Government's Programme   of  - Public Works for Vancouver During This Year.  HARBOR DEVELOPMENT  ON EXTENSIVE SCALE  Immigration Shed, Dredging of  Creek and Harbor, Drill Hall, Post-  Offices, Grain Elevators, Etc., Are  Included.  (News-Advertiser.)  The present year will be notable as  far as Vancouver is concerned for the  programme of improvements either  planned or in progress by the Dominion Government. The policy of the  government in developing the nation-  si ports of the Dominion has been  set in motion, and this port is receiving the attention which its rapidly increasing shipping demands. But  not only the port, but the city as a  -whole will benefit by the carrying out  of public improvements which are  absolutely essential.  Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.P., for Vancouver, at the request of The News.  Advertiser, outlined the public works  which will be inaugurated advanced or  completed during 1914.  New Immigration Shed  "One of the public buildings which  will be started and completed this  year will be the immigration detention shed," he stated. "Vancouver  has been sadly in need of such a building for a long time. Tenders for the  construction of the building, which  will be a credit to this pprt, were all  in by December 29, and a' contract  will be awarded at an early date. The  cost is approximately $.75,000. It  will be located on the waterfront at  the foot of Burrard street.  "The new government dock at the  foot of Salsbury drive, which will be  one of the finest structures of the  kind on the Pacific coast, will be  practically completed by the end of  the year. The dredging for the foun  dation has been finished and construction will ' be carried on energetically from now on. The  cost of the dock, exclusive of the su  perstructure and equipment, will be  $1,000,000, and the total cost- will  he about half a million more. The  government dock for North Vancouver: v.'ill be undertaken at as early a  date as possible. With these two  docks completed, the facilities for  shipping in Burrard Inlet will be  greatly enlarged.  "It is proposed to dredge another  half million cubic yards out of, Coal  harbor between Deadman's island and  the bridge. This will be done as a  convenience for small shipping. It  is probable that a turning basin will  be male there, as a considerable  amount of shipping is centered at the  spot.  First Narrows Dredging  "The dredging of the First narrows  will be nearly completed during the  present year. The channel is being  widened to 1400 feet with,, a depth of  35 feet at low tide, but for practical  purposes the channel will be 2000 feet  wide for nearly all kinds of shipping,  "The dredging of False creek from  : the Main Street bridge to English bay  : will be almost completed during the  year unless' further additions arcmade  to the contract���������which is likely. Not  long,ago theJ Pacific Dredging Company was given the contract of dredging out a turning basin at the head  of  the  creek,  and further  improve  ments  to  navigation  there  are   contemplated. . !  "The new drill hall in the east  end will be started soon. The plans  have been completed, and the details and specifications are now being worked out. Tbe cost will be between $350,O004 and $400,000. Good  headway should be made in con-  sturction during the present year.  Three Postal Stations  "During 1914 postal stations in  Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and  the east end will be undertaken. The  sites have been secured. These stations will be very valuable additions to  the postal service of the city and  suburbs, and will aid in the more  rapid distribution of mail matter, as  the carriers will radiate from these  stations instead of, as now, having to  start on their rounds from the main  Postoffice.  "I have every confidence that the  Second Narrows bridge will be started  during the year. The Bridge Company will call for tenders and award  a contract. I think the directors were  wise in deciding to go ahead in calling for tenders. There is no need for  further delay. I see nothing in the  way of the successful culmination of  this big project.  "In regard to the proposed dry  dock in North Vancouver, I expect the  subsidy agreement with the Government will be signed within 60 days.  It will be a most extensive work  and necessarily requires a great deal  of study of the details.  "Without question, I expect the decision of the Grain Commission in re.  gard to the location of the proposed  Government terminal elevator for this  coast will be made soon. There is no  doubt it will be located on the lower  mainland, and construction is likeiy  to be started during the year.  Deadman's Island  "The case of Deadman's island will  come up in the courts on January 18,  and I have every confidence that the  Government will succeed in either setting aside the lease altogether or in  any case reducing it to < the balance  of the original term, which is about  ten years. Should the latter result  occur further action will be taken  later to deal with the matter.  "During the year extensive harbor  works will be carried on also in Quebec, St. John, Halifax and Toronto.  The contract was let recently for improvements in Halifax harbor to cost  about $5,000,000. The projected improvements in Toronto harbor will  cost about $13,000,000. of which the  Dominion Government will provide  $5,000,000."

BOW CRIMINALS OF  OLD WERE TREATED  (Third Article by F. L. Vosper.)  Author of "Real Life Sketches" etc.  SECOND NARROWS BRIDGE  In pursuance with the policy outlined at a previous meeting of the  board the _ directors, of _the_ Burrard  Inlet Tunnel and Bridge Company  decided at a recent session to 'invite  tenders for the construction of the  proposed bridge across the Second  Narrows according to the plans prepared by Sir John Wolfe Barry, the  eminent British engineer.  Cables were despatched, notifying  the English engineer and his associates of the decision of the board and  asking that tenders be advertised in  London.  Bids on the work will be received  up to April 1 next. Advertisements  will also be inserted in local and Ottawa newspapers inviting tenders on  the construction.  The  murder   of   Mr.   Norway,   continued.  In the Montreal Witness there appeared some years ago a most remarkable story connected with the  death of Mr. -Norway, which I will  now' give your readers as accurately  as I can from memory.  One day in  the winter of 1839-401  the      East    Tndiaman    was/  homeward bound around the' Cape of  Good Hope. In fact, they had passed  the Cape and were somewhere off  the Island of Ascension when the  chief officer, Mr. Norway, came on  deck in a state of great agitation. He  went up to the captain and requested  him to take their exact position and  then come to the cabin as he had -an  important communication to make to  him. The captain at once fetched  out his instruments and ascertained  the latitude and longitude, and the  exact time as indicated on the chronometer. They then repaired to the  captain's cabin, where those particulars were duly entered- in the log  with the statement which Mr. Norway  promised to give him. This was as  follows: He had had a dream in  which he had seen his' brother riding  home from market. The night was  dark. The hedges beside the old  Cornish road -were high and]his  brother was alone. Suddenly in his  dream he saw two men spring from  the hedge, One seized his .horse's  head and held it while the other  struck at his brother's head with a  heavy club, felling him to the ground.  He saw them release the horse and  beat his brother until he saw him lying lifeless beside the road. He then  saw the two murderers search, his  brother's pockets, taking his watch  and money and then disappear in the  darkness. Mr. Norway gave the captain an accurate description of the  place where the murder was perpetrated, which the captain entered' in  the log, a-nd which was afterward  proved to be correct except- this, that  a thatched jrottage, which Mr. Norway in his dream had seen on the  right hand side of the Toad was found  to be on the left hand side. Mr. Norway's statement was signed and witnessed by the captain, and if I remember rightly by some of the other officers, Some weeks later the ship  arrived at Falmouth, and Mr. Norway  hastened on shore to make enquiries  respecting his brother. He soon  learned that his dream was too true,  and on comparing the time he found  that the murder had been committed  exactly at the time he had seen it.  These are facts.  Will Prof.   Odium  or  some other  learned man kindly explain them?  ...

I. W.DOWDING  Captain and Ad jutant  PASSENGER SERVICE  STARTED ON P.G.E.  Ushering in the New Year and the  dawn of a brighter era for the North  shore, * the first passenger service  of the Pacific Great Eastern, the- pioneer railway across the Inlet, was  inaugurated.  Representatives of all the North  Shore public bodies were personally  conducted by Mr. A. H. Sperry, gen.  eral manager of the railway construction company, with Mr. F. Wilson, land commissioner for the company, in the first train, which left  North Vancouver at 10:15 a. m.  amid lusty cheering, and made the  run to the end of the steel at Dund-  arave in 16 minutes. The whole  shore was en fete for the occasion.  On their arrival the party descended from the cars and were addressed  by Councillor Alexander of West  Vancouver, who acted as master of  ceremonies in an impromptu congratulatory function, and who expressed the pleasurable sentiments of  the residents of the North Shore at  the completion of the railway.  Other speeches were made along  the same line by Reeve Lawson,  Mayor Hanes, Reeve May, Mr. W.  Watts-Donley, president of the North  Vancouver Board of Trade, Mr. J. C.  Keith, Councillor Gintzberger, Mr.  W. J. Irwin, and Councillor Bridg-  man.  Suitable replies were made by  Messrs. Sperry and Wilsdn on behalf  of the company. The party then returned to North Vancouver, refreshments being served on the way. On  landing at the depot cheers were  given for the Pacific Great Eastern  railway and the officials who had officiated in extending the hospitality  of the road.  The service was maintained for the  rest of the day, all the fares collected  being turned over to the Daughters  of the King, to be used for charitable  purposes. Ladies representing the organization accompanied the conductors and acted as faretakers, and as  most of the passengers declined to  accept change, a handsome fund was  developed.  _The_gasoline_motor cars atipresent  operated number two and both are  handsome cars of steel construction,  propelled by 90-horsc power engines.  They are electric lighted and heated  with e steam. Next the engine room  is a baggage and express room, it being the intention of the company to  inaugurate a department for the handling of parcel freight as soon as possible. In each car is a compartment  for smokers in addition to a larger  general passenger room. The" interiors are finished in mahogny and  the roofs are high, giving excellent  ventilation.  The initial schedule of the trains  called for a forty-minute service out  of North Vancouver and Dundarave  in the rush hours of the morning and  evening, and an hourly service between 10 in the morning and 5 in the  afternoon. Cash fares from North  Vancouver will be, to Capilano, 5  cents; to Fourteenth street and Holly-  burn, 10 cents; and to Dundarave, 15  cents. A strip of 25 tickets will cost,  to Fourteenth street, $L9f); to Hol-  lyburn, $2.05, and to puhdarave, $2.50.  A strip of fifty tickets will cost, to  Fourteenth street; $3.60; to Holly-  burn, $3.80, and to Dundarave $4.50.  8. Mary the Virgin, South' Hill.  (Cor.

The only nomination  rejected was that of one of the candidates for Ward Six, but a serious  question has been raised as to the  right of Mr. L. D. Taylor to run for  office, although his nomination paper was accepted by the city clerk.  No other course was open as the  nomination papers showed prima  facie evidence that the property qualification was possessed by Mr. Taylor, but it is charged by Mayor Baxter that Mr. Taylor has tried to claim  a fictitious title, and that an application to the courts would immediately upset the nomination, The.  mayor, however, proposes to have no  recourse to legal remedy and is quite  prepared tojight the campaign on its  merits.  The Act requires that a man shall  have a property qualification of $1000  over and above all encumbrances in  his own name for one month prior to  nomination.  Property Qualification  The Mayor drew attention to the  fact that every other certificate of  candidates for office with a property  qualification, except that of Mr. Taylor, carried with it the further statement that no encumbrances had been  registered against the property for  the previous 30'days.  There are six candidates for the  two scats on the Licensiing Board,  five candidates for the four seats on  the Sjchpol Board and four candidates  for the three seats on the Park  Board. Nominations for the vacancy  on the School Board, caused by the  retirement of Dr. "Brydone-Jack, will  be received on Monday Mr. Allan C.  Stewart is a candidate.

BLACK  Mental balance, clear insight to existing conditions, experience in public matters, aptness in  speech, striking personality and the ability to do  things, characterize, A. P. Black, who, after one  year of satisfactory service as Alderman in Ward  Five, is again a candidate for eleetion.  Mr. Black does not overlook the larger interests of the whole city while never forgetting the  particular needs of Ward Five; His majority  should be significant.  Frank Trimblej the safe, thoughtful businesslike Alderman, has carried Ward Eight on his  heart.  Study Alderman Thomas Evans and you will  know how he has done so much for Ward Four  during 1913.  JOHN McLENNAN  John McLennan, Aldermanic candidate for  Ward Seven, announces himself, his plans and  purposes as follows: "Union wages and union  hours for civic employees, encouragement of industries, appropriations, for Ward. Seven more  in keeping with the size of the Ward and its needs.  If elected I will devote my whole time to the in*  terests of Ward Seven and the city in general."  Your vote and influence respectfully solicited.  ,^i  PWAN  -Electors of Ward-Four before you-vote think-  of Charles Boardman and examine his platform.  Many things conspire to make him a valuable  man in civic affairs. He is vigorous, courageous,  energetic, intelligent and thoroughly independent. His views on the needs of Ward Four and  the city are clear cut and pronounced. His spinal  column is healthy and his brain clear. The ward  would be. safe in his hands. All signs point to his  election.   ,  Honesty, integrity and faithfulness characterize Alex Cieland as Alderman of Ward Two.  CHARLES E. SMITH  The nine planks in Charles E. Smith's platform evidence his familiarity with the peculiar  needs of" Ward Four. He has given the matter  close attention and speajcs as one who knows  whereof he affirms. He is comparatively young,  but, as a business man, has had a wide experience  in dealing with public matters.  ^Industry, ambition, carefulness, education and  a tendency to public duties emphasize his claims  to the attention and suffrage of the electors.  WARD FIVE AI-ftBRMEN  For the past year, one of the worst in the  history of the city financially, the City Coun���������>  cil ha8 been forced to economize and retrench in every way.   It has drawn out the ^  best that is in our aldermen, conspicuous  among our city fathers have been the representatives ^of Ward V., Aids. Mahon and  Black.   They have both stood strongly in  favor of careful financial management. They   '  have supported the policy of "white labor" v.  "for civic works, especially local married men.  Both of these aldermen have done excellent  work on the Committees upon which they-  worked, they have shown a broad, comprehensive grasp of city business and merit the  confidence of the citizens for another year.  Alderman Fred P. Rogers, of Ward Eight, is in  the field to win.  Ex-Alderman George King needs no introdiic-  tion to the ratepayers of Ward Four. "  JAMES WHITE ".-"  Alderman James White has been induced to  appear as candidate for Aldermanic honorsN in  Ward Six for 1914, and now solicits the suffrage  -of the electors. ^ :"  Mr. White has experience in this capacity an#>  is familiar with the present urgent needs of this  important ward.  It's no,t necessary for us to enlarge on one so  well and favorably known as this experienced  Alderman of the West ward.  Joseph Hoskin,   the   "Independent  Candidate," stands for Ward Four.  People's  , -'i  Jl3  ���������       FRANK TRIMBLE  Ward Eight has been well represented in the  City Council since before it was a ward by Alderman Frank Trimble. V He has been vigilant*;  painstaking and business-like in his devotion to  his constituency, hence has'secured for the Ward  many improvements, such as lights, walks,  plank roads and permanent improvements, including Kingsway. .   -  Work has  commenced   on   the  joint sewer  scheme and money has been furnished for the....:  laterals in Ward Eight.  A reduction in water rates and other ad van-"  tages have been secured. l  Mr. Trimble has brought to his work as AJUM  derman the same methods that have made him  successful in business from early youth to ttrerr"  present. -���������..���������.  # He is level headed, industrious, honorable and  just. We bespeatfor:^  polls.  Ward One and Alderman Walter Hepburn are  inseparable.  .    GEOR0EKJNO  Few men are better known to the ratepayers  of Ward Four than; ex-Alderman George King.  His voice is often heard in the discussion of vital  questions, and his judgment is excellent. His  property interests, together with his business experience, add weight to his cbims Upon the suffrage of the electors. His platform gives evidence,  of acquaintance with the current needs of Ward  Four. If elected he will doubtless serve on the  Council to the best of bis ability.  Fred Welsh of the London Grocery is School  Trustee candidate.    The city can furnish none-  better. -"''���������'.  WALTER HEPBURN  Walter Hepburn. - Think of what an Alderman should be, then turn to Walter Hepburn as  a living example. He is that. Sometimes you  may feel hurt by his pungent critieisims, but  your respeet for the critic remains unimpaired.;  "Vancouver has in this able representative of  Ward One a strong and reliable champion under  all events and circumstances] He will be reelected and trusted as in the past years.  ALD. THOMAS KIRKPATRICK  Ward Three has been well represented by  Aid. Thomas Kirkpatrick, who is again a candidate for aldermanic honors.  Candidate Charles E. Smith is a  successful  .business man and proposes to serve Ward Four  as an Alderman.  Vote for T. S. Baxter as Mayor for 1914. Do  not change in the middle of the stream of a financial crisis.   He is a master mind.   Trust him.  John McLennan is Aldermanic candidate for  Ward Seven.  WALTER R. HAMILTON  and  Ward Two  A new name comes up in Ward Two among the  Aldermanic candidates, viz: Walter R. Hamilton,  a man of excellent character, who is thoroughly  versed in civic matters, having made a study of  them, and being a constant attendant of ratepayers meetings. He has been appointed on many  committees of trust and responsibility. No interest of Ward Two or of the city -would suffer  in his hands.  Reeve J. A. Kerr is a man of clear brain, executive ability and moral courage. He is again candidate for the Reeveship of South Vancouver.  School Trustee W. H. P. Clubb is candidate for  re-election.   Trust him ���������  A. P. Black should be returned as Alderman of  Ward Five.  '   V  Alderman Fred P. Rogers has demonstrated  his fitness for the office to which he was called by  the, electors of Ward Eight' at the last election.  Like his yoke-fellow, Frank Trimble, he carries  his ward upon his heart, and loses no opportunity  to get advantages for his constituency. He, too,  ���������is big enough to consider the needs of the city  and to work for the general good.  "With Rogers and Trimble at the head of Ward  Eight in 1914 many more improvements may be  expected. '     " ;  George King solicits the suffrage'of the electors of Ward Four.   v  Alderman James White solicits the vote and influence of the electors of Ward Six for another  terra.  J, C. McArthur, candidate for the Reeveship of  South Vancouver, has clear and comprehensive  views on the needs of the Municipality. i  ��������� .Vancouver has many good men, but none better  qualified to be School Trustee than Fred Welsh  "of the London Grocery.  _ "Alderman ThomasEvans, the man who- applies  business principles to Aldermanic duties in Ward  Four. ^  South Vancouver interests have been well looked after by Reeve J. A. Kerr.  ROBERT MacPHERSON  The electors of Ward Four know the name  and the man at the head of this sketch. In the  near past he served the "ward with characteristic unselfishness and sincere devotion to the best  interests of his constituency. Yielding to many  solicitations, Mr. MacPherson consents to be a  candidate for Aldermanic honors for 1914. His  experience and qualities make him a valuable  man in'the Councils of the city.  Ward Eight counts upon the re-election of Fred  P. Rogers.  ALD. MALCOLM M'BEATH  Ward Seven has the energetie and promising  Candidate Aid. Malcolm McBeath: He gives evidence of independence, initiative and strength.    _.  ALD. F. E. WOODSIDE  V  am  tJ-W^i^K.^ :���������������.-  Few men of the city are better or more favorably known than Aid. F. E. Woodside of Ward  Seven.   We fully'look for his re-election.  mmmmmjmmm  C. E. MAHON  Alderman C. E. Mahon is big enough to make  enemies, and strong enough to hold friends as  with "hooks of steel." One year in the City  Council confirms the expectations of his most  sanguine friends. He is an Alderman to the  Manor born.- His record is open to inspection,  and his character above suspicion. Friend and  foe alike are forced to respect him.  C. E. Mahon should be re-elected with pronounced majority. He is too good and able a  man to be-forgotten. The city needs him in its  Council.  Ward Eight knows and trusts Alderman Frank  Trimble.  Joseph Hoskins has had large experience in the  field of labor. He is. Aldermanic candidate in  Ward Four.  To Electors ofWard V.:������������������  Being presented with a requisition largely  signed by the ratepayers of Ward V., asking me  to allow my name to be placed in, nomination, I  have decided to become an Aldermanic candidate  for the coming election.

Welsh, candidate for "School Trustee, is  , an old citizen of Vancouver, having .lived here  since ^lay, 1889. In Septembr, 1890, he came te  live in Ward Five, and can claim to be one of its  oldest residents. Since March, 1891, he has been  actively engaged in the grocery business, from  1891 to 1902 in Mount Pleasant as a member of  ..the firm of Welsh & Nightingale, well known to.  old timers, and since that time until the present  as owner and manager of the London Grocery  Company.  This .is his first appearance as a candidate  "for any civic office in the gift of the people, and  his long business experience amply qualifies him  for a seat" on the School Board, where, in the  opinion of so many of our citizens sound business  management is required.  We feel that when business ^nen of the type  of Mr. Welsh offer themselves as candidates for  ' office the citizens can ill afford to lose the opportunity to elect them.  We freely endorse him and expeet to see him  elected.  J. R. SEYMOUR,  . J. R. Seymour, who appears among the School      '/','  Trastee Candidates of tliu CUy, was born in St.  Catharines, Ont.

The Vanishing Portrait. '  " Evelyn Grayson, meeting me on th������  old Boston Post Road, between Green-  wlcb. and Stamford, gave me a message from her uncle. ' That Is the  logical "beginning of this story; though  to make everything quite clear from  the start It may be better to hark  back a lew months, to the day on  which Evelyn Grayson, and I first met.  Then, as now. we were each driving  our own. car; she. a great sixty horse-  i power machine, all glistening pale yel-  jlow, and I, a   compact   six-cylinder  racer, of dull dusty gray. But we were  [not on any, such, broad, roomy thor-  >oughfare as the Boston Post Road. On  ���������the contrary  we were short-cutting  'through a narrow, rough lane, beset  [by atone walls and Interrupted at ln-  itervala by a    series of   sharp  "and  treacherous angles.  I know I shall never forget the momentary impression I received.   Out  "Why not come for dinner!" she added; and her eyes gave accent to her  words.  "But you?" I queried; for her car  was headed in the opposite direction.  I am going alone to Norton. I have  a hamper In the tonneau for that poor  O'Malley family. I shall be back In  time. We dine at half-past seven, you  know.   You'll come?"  "Of course I'll come," I answered  her. I think she must have heard  more in my voice than the simple  words, for her lids drooped, for just  a breath, and the color flamed sudden  below her lowered lashes.  But, after all, I saw very little of  her that evening. It Is true that she  aat on my right at table, piquantly,  youthfully beautiful in the softly tinted light which filtered through the  pink and silver filigree candle-Bhades,  but the atmosphere of the dinner was  tinged by a vague, unreasoning constraint as from some ominously brood-.  > ing yet undeflnable influence   which  of the golden sunlight. It seemed to. OTerhung the three of us> ..^ when  me. there had emerged suddenly    a  tho coffee and iiqo������urs were Berved,  tableau of Queen Tltanla on a topaz  throne���������rile fairest Queen Tltanla im-  aglatlon ever conjured���������and I, In my  mad, panting speed was about to  crash into the gauzy fabric of that  dream -creation and rend It with  brutal, torturing onrush of relentless,  hard-driven nickel steel. .1 take, no  icredit to myself for what I did. Volition was absent. My hands acted on  an impulse above and beyond all tardy  {mental guidance. For just a flashing  instant the gray nose of my car rose  before me, as in strenuous1 assault it  'mounted half way to the coping of  the roadside wall. I felt my seat dart  .away from beneath me, was conscious  of my "body in swift, unsupported  aerial flight, and then���������but it is idle  .to attempt to Bet down the conglomerate sensations of that email fraction  of a second. When I regained consciousness, Queen Tltanla was kneeling in the dust of the lane beside me  ���������������, very distressed and anxious Queen  Tltanla, with wide, startled eyes, and  onlverlngly sympathetic lips���������and  about tib were a half dozen or more  of the vicinal country folk.  j - Between that meeting, in. mid-May  and thi������ meeting on the old Boston  Post Bead in mid-September, there  had been others, of Course; for Queen  Tltanla, whose every-day name, as I  liar* said, was Evelyn Grayson* was  the niece and ward of my nearest  neighbor, Sir. Robert Cameron, a gentleman recently come to reside on  what for a century and more had been  known as the old Townsbnry Estate,  ���������extending* for quite a mile along the  'Connecticut shore of Long Island  igound in the neighborhood of Greenwich.  Tho Intervening four months had  witnessed the gradual growth of as  near an approach to intimacy between  Cameron, and myself as was possible  -considering the manner of man that  Cameron was. By which statement I  mean to Imply naught to my neighbor's discredit. He was in all respects  .������4mlrable���������a gentleman of education  and culture, -widely traveled, of exalt-  -W ideals and noble principles to which  he gave rigid adherence.   But���������I was  .about to qualify this- by describing  ''him as reserved and taciturn.   I tear,  -though, to give a wrong impression.  :,P������ was scarcely that. There were  imoments, however, when be was nnre-  ��������� aponstve, and be was never demonstrative.    He had more poise than any  - man 1 know. He allowed yon to see  Just so much of him, and no more. At  - times be was almost stubbornly reticent.   And yet, in spite of these qual-  - ttles, which appeared to be cultivated  rather than inherent, he gave repeated  ��������� evidence of a nature at once so simple and kindly and sympathetic as to  - {command both confidence and affection.  To the progress of   my   Intimacy  with Evelyn there had been no such  itmnperamental impediment.   She was  ���������   fearlessly outspoken, with a frankness  jborn of unspoiled Innocence;  barely  'six weeks having elapsed between her  graduation from the tiny French convent of Salute Barbe near Paris and  our perilous encounter in that contracted, treacherous, yet blessed little  .Connecticut lane.   And she possessed,  '���������moreover, a multiplicity of addition-  ",at charms, both of person and dispo-  ialtlon���������charms too numerous Indeed  jto enumerate, and far too sacred to  4lscuss.   From which it may rightly  rbe inferred that we understood each  'other, Evelyn and I, and that we were  already considerably beyond the state  or condition of mere formal acquaint-  ���������noesMp.  : It was no Queen Titanfa who now  'came gliding to a stand beside me on  |the broad, level, well-oiled highway,  trader a, double row of arching elms. It  iwas no gossamer fairy, but Hebe, the  I Goddess of Youth, with creamy skin,  'and red lips and a lilting melody of  'voice:  ���������    "What bo, Sir Philip!   We axe well  met!"  And then she told me that her Uncle  .Robert had telephoned for me. leaving *��������� message with my man, bidding  sae come to him at my earliest leisure.  employing some slender pretext for  her going, she bade us good-night, and  left us, not to return.  In Justice to Cameron, I must add  that he appeared least affected by���������  and certainly in no wise responsible  for���������*he pervading infestlvity. He had  been, indeed, rather-less demure than  was often his wont, chatting with almost gayety concerning Evelyn's new  role of Lady Bountiful and i of her  Noroton beneficiaries. , As for the subject upon .which he desired to consult  me, it bad not been so much as mentioned; so in looking back, it seems  impossible that matters of which  neither Evelyn nor I was at the time  informed could have exerted an effect,  save through Cameron's undetected,  subconscious inducement,  Even after his niece had withdrawn, Cameron continued for a time  to discuss with me topics of general  and public, rather than personal, import. He spoke, I remember, of a  series of articles on "Tha Commercial  Resources of the United States," the  publication of which bad just begun,  in The Week, of which I am owner  and editor; and though I fancied at  first that it might be in this connection be wished to consult me, I very  soon discerned that he was merely  using a statement contained therein  as a text for certain views of his own  on the conservation and development  of the country's timber Supply.  I go thus into what may seem uninteresting detail, partly that I may  give a hint as to the character of:  Cameron's mind, but more especially  to indicate how lightly he would have  had me think he regarded that'for  which be sought me.  Meanwhile my curiosity grew^ keener. It was natural, I suppose, that I  should fancy Evelyn InvolvedIni some  way. In fact 1 then attributed the depression during dinner to her knowledge of what her uncle and guardian  .purposed .to say to me.V Likewise;!  found in this conception the reason  for her sudden and unusual desertion.  Hitherto when I had dined here Evelyn had remained with us while we  smoked our cigarettes, leading us at  length to the music room, where for  a glad half-hour the rich melody of  her youthful sweet oontraltb voice  mingled in pleasing harmony with her  own piano accompaniment.  And while I vainly made effort to  imagine wherein I might have laid myself open to the disapproval of this  most punctilious of guardians���������for I  expected nothing less than a studiously polite reference to some shortcoming of which I had been unwittingly'  guilty���������I momentarily lost track of  '.my host's discourse. Emerging.from  my abstraction It was with a measure  of relief that I heard him saying:  '1 think you told me once, Clyde,  that you rather prided yourself on  your ability to get a line on one's  character from bis handwriting.  That's why I telephoned for you this  afternoon. I have received an anony*  mous letter."  There was an all too apparent assumption of nonchalance in his manner of expression to deceive even the  least observant, of which I am not  one. The effect was to augment the  Seriousness of the revelation. I saw  at once that he was more disquieted  than he would have me know.  He was leaning forward, a little  joonstralnedly, his left hand gripping  the arm of his chair, the fingers of his  right hand toying with the step of  his golcfrlmmed Bohemian liqueur  glass.  "An anonymous letter!" I repeated,  with a deprecatory smile. "Anonymous  letters should be burned and forgotten. Surely you're not botheringj.about  the writer?"  I wish I could put before you an exact reproduction of Cameron's face as  I then saw It; these rugged outlines,  the heritage of Scottish ancestry, soft-  jened and refined by a brilliant intellectuality ; the sturdy chin and square  Saw; the heavy underllp meeting the  the round lenses of his spectacles; the  high, broad, sloping, white brow and  the receding border of dark brown,  slightly grizzled hair. That, superficially, was the face. But I saw more  than that. In the visage of one naturally brave I saw a battle waged be-  j hind a trash���������a battle between courage and fear; and I saw fear win. -  j Then the mask became opaque once  more, and Cameron, giving me smile  for smile, v as replying.  "There are anonymous letters and  anonymous letters. Ordinarily your  method is the one I should pursue. Indeed I may say that when, about a  month' or so ago, I received a communication of that character, I did  almost precisely what you now advise. Cercttlnly I followed one-half of  your prescription���������I forgot the letter;  though, for lack of fire in the dog  days, I did not burn it, but thrust it  , Into a drawer with an accumulation  of advertising circulars."  My apprehension lest Evelyn and I  were personally affected had been by  now quite dissipated. It was perfectly  apparent to me that Cameron alone  was involved; yet my anxiety was  none the less eager. Already my sympathy and co-operation were enlisted.  I could only hope that he had mentally exaggerated the gravity of the situation, yet my judgment of him was  that his inclination would be to err  in the opposite direction.    '   -  "And now something has'happened  to recall it to your memory?"  "Something happened very shortly  after its receipt," he replied. "Something very puzzling. But In spite of  that, I was inclined to treat the" matter  as a bit of clever chicanery, devised  for the purpose, probably, of extortion.  As such, I again put it from my  thoughts; but today I received a second letter, and I admit.I am interested. The affair has features which  make it, indeed, uncoininonty perplexing."  I fear my imagination was sluggish.  Although, in spite of his dissemblance,  I saw that he was strangely moved by  these happenings, I could fancy no  very terrifying concomitants of the  rather commonplace facts be had narrated. For anonymous letters I had  ever held scant respect. An ambushed  enemy, I argued, is admitted^ a coward. And so I was in danger of growing impatient.  "When the: Becond letter came," he  continued, bringing his left hand forward to join his right on the dazzling  white ground of the table's damask, "I  searched among the circulars for the  first, and found it. I want you to see  them both. The writing Is very curious-���������I have never seen anything just  like it^-and the signature, if I may call  it that, is still more singular. On the  first letter, I took it for a blot.. But  on the second letter occurs the same  black blur or smudge of identical outline.". ������������������'���������':'������������������'���������  ! ;0f course I thought of the Black  Hand. Jt was the natural corollary,  seeing that the newspapers bad been  giving us a surfeit of Black Hand  threats and Black Hand outrages. But,  somehow, I did not dare to voice it.  To have suggested anything so ordinary io Cameron in his present mood  would have been to offer him offense.  And when,! at the next moment, he  drew from an inner pocket of :bis evening coat two thin, wax-like sheets of  ���������paper and passed them to me, j -was  glad that I had kept silence. For the  ;letters were no rough, rude scrawls  of an illiterate Mafia or Camorra. In  | phraseology as well as In penmanship they were impressively unique.  "If you dont mind," Cameron was  isaying, "you might read them aloud."  He rose and switched on a group of  electricfwall^iights-at-my back^anil-  marked for the hundredth time his  physique���������his towering height, his  powerful; shoulders, his leanness of  hip and. sturdy straightness of limb.  He did not look the forty years to  which he confessed.; '  One of the long French windows  Which gave upon the terrace stood  ���������ajar, and before resuming his seat  Cameron paused to close it, dropping  ���������over it the,looped curtains of silver  gray velvet that matched the walls..  In the succeeding moment the room  was ghostly silent; and then, breaking  against the stillness, was the sound of  my voice, reading:  "That which you have wrought shall  In turn be wrought upon you. Take  warning 'therefore of what shall happen on the seventh day hence. As  sun follows sun, so follows all that Is  decreed. The ways of our God are  many. On the righteous he showers  blessings; on the evil be pours  misery."  That was the first letter. The second began with the same sentence:  "That which you have wrought shall  in turn be wrought upon you."  But there, though the similarity of  tenor continued, the verbal identity  ceased.  It went on:  "Once more, as earnest of what is  decreed, there will be shown unto you  a symbol of our power. Precaution  cannot avail. Fine words and a smiling countenance make not virtue."  And beneath each letter was the  strange silhouette which Cameron  had mentioned.  It is difficult for me to convey the  most meager idea of the emotional influence which these two brief communications exerted. They seemed'to  breathe ja grim spirit of implacable  Nemesis liar in excess of anything to  be found In the euphemism of the  written words.  When I had finished the reading of  them aloud, Cameron, leaning far back  in his chair, sat silently thoughtful,  his eyes narrowed behind his glasses,  but fixed apparently upon the lights  behind me. And so, reluctant to interrupt his reverie, I started to read  ihem through again slowly, this time  (upper in scarcely perceptible curve;1-j^ m7M-\t, fixing each sentence indel-  the broad, homely nose; the small, |Diy In mlai M j. proceeded. But be-  but alert, gray eyes, shining   through  fore I had quite come to the end, my  companion was speaking.  "Well?" he said. And the light'  cheerlness of his tone was not only In1  marked contrast with his grave absorption of a moment before, but In  Jarring diseord with my own present  mood. "Well? What do you make of,  them2"  My annoyance found voice in my response.  "Cameron," I begged, !'for God'Si  Bake be serious. This doesn't seem'  to me exactly a matter to be merry  over. I don't want to alarm you, but,  isomehow I feel that these���������" and Ij  shook the crackling, wax-like sheets,!  "that these cannot be utterly ignored."  ' "But they are anonymous,"������he retorted, not unjustly. "Anonymous  letters should be burned and fcrgotJ  ten." j  "There are anonymous letters and!  anonymous letters," I gave him backJ  In turn. "These are of an unusually!  convincing character. Besides, they!  *��������������� And then I paused. I wished toj  tell him of that elusive) encompass^  tnent of sinister portent which had soj  Impressed me; of that malign forebod������i  Ing beyond anything warranted by the  words; but I stumbled in the effort as,  expression. "Besides," I started again;  and ended lamely, "I dont like the.  look and the feel of them." '  And now be was as serious as Ii  bould wish.  "Ah!" he cried, leaning forward  again and reaching for the letters.  "You have experienced it, tool And  yen can't explain it, any more than I?  It is something that grips you when  you read, like an icy hand, hard" as  steel, in a glove of velvet. It's always between the lines, reaching out,  and nothing you can do will stay it  I thought at first I Imagined it, hut  the oftener I have read, the more I  have felt its' clutch. The letters of  {themselves are nothing. What do you  Suppose L care for veiled threats of  that sort? I'm big enough to take  care of myself, Clyde. I've met peril  In about every possible guise, in every  part of the world, and I've never realty known fear. But this���������this is different. And the worst of it is, I don't  know why. I can't for the life of me  imake out what it is I'm afraid of." ���������  He had gone very pale, and his  strong, capable hands, which toyed  with 'the two letters, quivered and  'twitched in excess of nervous tension.  ; Then, with a finger pointing to the  {ink-stain at the bottom of one of the  sheets, he asked:  "What does that look like to you?"  I took the letter from him, and  scrutinizing the rude figure with concentrated attention for a moment, ventured the suggestion that it somewhat  'resembled a boat.  i "A     one-masted     vessel,     square-  rigged," he added, in elucidation.  "Exactly."  "Now turn it upside down.**  X did so.  "Now what do you see?"  The head of a man wearing a hel-1  imet."   The   resemblance   was very  'marked.  \s:"X straw helmet, apparently," he  amplified, "such as is worn in the  I Orient And yet the profile is not that  jot an Oriental. Now, look at your ves-  isel again." And once mora I reversed  jthe sheet of paper,  i "Can it be a Chinese junk?"I asked.  ; "It might be a sailing proa or ban-  ���������ca," be returned, "such as they use in  'the South Pacific.-But whatever It is,  I can't understand what It has to do  (Wit*, me or I with tt."  I was still studying the'black daub.  When he said:  "But you haven't told me about the  [handwriting.   What can you read of  'the character of the writer?*'  ;   "Nbltting," I   answered,' ^remptly^  '"It is curious penmanship, as yon say  ���������heavy and regular and upright, with  ispme strangely formed   letters;   es-  -pecially the f's and the p's; but it  tells me nothing.*'     .:-.-::::  ������������������But I thought���������" he began.  "That I boasted?   So $ did.   When  one writes as one habitually writes it  Is very easy.   These letters, however,  are not in the writer's ordinary hand.  The' writing is as artificial.as though  'you, for example, had printed a note  in Roman characters.   Were they addressed in the same hand?"  "Precisely."  ������������������What waB the post-mark?"  "They bore no post-mark. That is  'another strange circumstance. Yet  they were with my mail. How they  came there I have been unable to a*������  'certain. The people at the post office  naturally deny that they delivered  [anything unstamped, as these were;  [and Barrle, the lad who fetches the  iletters, has no recollection of these.  ;Nor has Checkabeedy, who sorts the  [mail here at the house. But each of  'them lay beside my plate at break-  'fast-the first on the fourteenth of  j August; the Becond, this morning, the  (fourteenth of September."  . "And they were not delivered by  {messenger?"  i   "So far as I can learn, no."  !:   "It Ib very odd," I commented, with  (feeble banality. -  i I took the letters from his hands  ionce more, and held them in turn between my vision and the candle-light,  'hoping/'perchance, to discover a waiter-mark in the paper. But I was not  rewarded.  "You examined the envelopes carefully, I presume?".was my query as I  returned the sheets to the table.  <rMore than carefully," he answered.  "But you shall see them. If you like.  I found no trace of any identifying  mark."  Thus far he had made .no further  mention of the "puzzling happening"  which followed the receipt of the first  letter, and in the interest provoked by  the letters themselves I had foreborne  to question him; butnow as the words  "seventh day hence".fell again under  my eye, standing out, as it were, from  the rest of the script which lay up-  .

"I wish you* would tell me, first,  ���������whether anything really did occur on  the seventh day."  "I -was coming to that," he replied;  .but it seemed to me that prompt  though bis response was, there was a  shade of reluctance in his manner; for  he relapsed Into Bllenoe for what must  have been the better part of a minute, and "with eyes lowered sat seemingly lost in thought.  - Then he rose, abruptly, and saying:  "Suppose we go into my study, Clyde,"  led the way from the dining room,  across the great. Imposing, grained  and fretted hall to that comparatively  .small mahogany and green symphony  'wherein he waa wont to spend most  (Of nls Indoor hours. It was always a  jratber gloomy room at night, with Its  high dark ceiling, its heavy and voluminous olive tapestry hangings,  wholly out of keeping; it seemed to  'roe, with tbe season���������and its shaded  [lights confined to the vicinity of the  imaaelve polished, and gilt-ornamented  writing table of the period of the First  Empire. And it impressed me now,  tin conjunction with Cameron's promised revelation, as mora than ever  ������rhn and awesome.  I remember helping myself to a  cigar from the humidor which stood  on the antique cabinet In the corner  near the door. I was in the act of  ���������lighting it when Cameron spoke.  "I want you to sit in this chair," he  ,'sald, indicating one of sumptuous up*  holstery which stood beside the writ*  i.lng table, facing the low, long book-  cases lining the opposite wall.  I did as he bade me, while he remained standing. ,  "Do you, by any chance," be asked,  "remember a portrait which hung  Above the book-shelves V  I remembered it very well. It waa a  painting of himself, done some yeara  back. But now my gaze sought it in  vain.  "Certainly," I answered. "It hung  there," pointing.  "Quite right. Now I want you to ob>  serve the shelf-top. You see how  crowded It Is."  It wbb indeed crowded. Bronze  busts and statuettes; yachting and  golf trophies in silver; framed photo,  graphs; a score of odds and ends; souvenirs gathered the world over. There  was scarcely- an inch of space unoccupied. I had frequently observed this  plethora of ornament and resented it,  It gave to that part of the room the  semblance of a curiosity shop. When  I had nodded my assent, he went on:  "On the afternoon of Friday, August  twenty-first, seven days after the receipt of that first letter, I was sitting  where you are sitting now. I was  reading, and deeply interested. I had  put the letter, as Z told you, entirely  out of my mind. I bad forgotten It,  absolutely. That seventh-day business  I had regarded���������If I regarded It at all  ���������as idle vaporing. That this was the  afternoon of the seventh day did not  occur to me until afterwards. I recall  that I paused in reading to ponder a  paragraph that was not quite dear to  me, and that while in contemplation I  fixed my eyes upon that portrait. I remember that, because it struck me,  then, that the flesh tints of the face  had grown muddy and that the thing  would be better for a cleaning- I recall, too, that at that moment, the little clock, yonder, struck three. J resumed my reading; but presently, another statement demanding cogitation,  I lowered my book, and once more my  eyes rested on the portrait. But not  on the muddy flesh tints, because���������"  ipast, that no Oyges* ring nor Albe-  rich's cloak survived to tbis day to  make Invisible their .wearers, there  persisted, nevertheless, a chill, uncanny sense of the supernatural, quite  evident to me in Cameron's hushed  voice and furtive manner, and in my  owA unwonted nervous disquietude.  We sat very late. I wished* if possible, to learn if at any time in my  friend's life he had done aught to engender an enmity to which < these  strange developments could be traced  ���������whether, for instance, in the hot  blood of bis youth in some far land be  had provoked the vengeance of one  whose humor it is never to forget. As  we talked I came to know Cameron  better than I had ever known him before. He bared to me much of his  early career; he gave me a clearer  view of his temperamental qualities;  and yet I could not but fee! that h������j  left-the vital point untouched, that beneath his seeming frankness there lay  hidden, shielded, some one episode,  perhaps, which might let the light in  upon our darkness. For my question  was evaded rather than answered.  Presently, we went back to the letters and dissected them, coldly and  critically, sentence by sentence, and  while the weird influence which they  had exerted upon me at the first reading Increased, stimulated possibly, by  the Incident of the portrait, still we  reached a certain practical, common-  sense view as to their origin; for we  came to see In them what we believed to be the hand of a lellgiouB  fanatic. Certain expressions, we concluded, were quotations. If they were  not Biblical, they were certainly of  sacred genesis. And the discovery  was not reassuring. It lent, indeed,  an added prick to- the perturbation we  already experienced.  iwwitinuou    Next Week.)  HIGH COST OF LIVING  Mr. John 'A.- Ruddick, Dairy Commissioner, and/ Mr. John A. Brown,  Chief of Poultry Section, on High  Cost of Living.  CHRISTMAS AT THE VANCOUVER RESCUE MISSION  Through the generosity of its many  friends and supporters the Vancouver  Rescue Mission, situated at 150 Alexander street, has been enabled to  Ottawa, Dec. 31.���������The commission  on the cost of living had Mr.- John A.  Ruddick, Dairy and Cold Storage  Commissioner, and Mr. William A.  Brown, chief of the poultry section  of the live stock branch, before them.  From both these Government officials the Commission got some useful first-hand information.  The evidence of Messrs. Ruddick  and Brown showed that ther.e is a vast  difference in the efficiency with  which the dairy and poultry industries  are carried on. The former is well  organized, and the' production and  marketing of the dairy products is on  a scientific and business-like basis.  The poultry business, on the other  hand, is in a comparatively primitive  state in this country, as to the quantity and quality of the eggs and fowl  and the system of marketing them.  In the marketing of the eggs, there  is no provision for classification, as  they pass from producer to wholesaler and then to retailer.  It is only -when they reach the  cold storage firm that they are carefully classified���������the bad ones weeded  out���������and the rest placed in five  grades. As for the net profits of the  cold storage man, that is unknown  to the public. Poultry are often purchased also without . classification  and merely according to the weight  of a laTge number of birds taken together  It is felt both producer and consumer would benefit considerably if  the poultry industry were got on a  better basis.

Rifle Shots Echo In the Wood*.  Of conveying even a tithe of the horror I experienced at Cameron's disclosure I am nigh hopeless. The more  we discussed the occurrence the less  susceptible It seemed of explanation.  And what Is so terrifying as the inexplicable, or so dreadful as the intangible? Here, apparently, was an  enemy of calm and cunning malignity,  who chose to manifest his power In a  manner almost ludicrously puerile���������  isave as it pointed with significant finger to some-dire and Inevitable sequel  ������������������yet with such crafty secrecy "as completely to mystify and dismay.  Cameron showed me the mutilated  portrait. He had taken it down almost Immediately, and had hidden it  ���������way In a closet of the hall behind an  array of raincoats. The cutting had  been done, evidently, with an exceedingly keen blade, and very, dexterously done. But that it should have been  accomplished In twelve minutes/ while  Cameron sat in the room, not fifteen  feet distant, was beyond our comprehension. Absorption in his book was  the nearest we came to a solution, and  that "was scarcely tenable. For there  was the crowded top ������f the bookshelves. To cut tho canvas, the vandal must either have stood upon that  or have reared a ladder. There was  not room for the foot of a Child on the  jihelf-top; and as for the ladder, it was  unthinkable. How could a ladder have  been carried in and out without Cameron being conscious   of it?

Without the mission, -with its commodious and comfortable sleeping  accommodations, nearly one hundred  men would have been forced to sleep  out in the open air during the holiday  season, but night after night free  beds were given to approximately  this number of men. '  For some weeks past now the mission has been tiding over this number jof men with meals'and beds, and  with the coming of Christmas the  number of appeals for help has more  than doubled. These appeals have  been met to the very limit of the ability of the institution, the house being  filled to its utmost capacity, and men  have only been turned away when  this limit had been reached.  A large quantity of clothing has  been distributed, but che demands for  such far exceed what we are able to  supply.  On Tuesday night more than 200  men : were served with luncheon after  having enjoyed an evening of music  and song in the Mission hall. An inspiring   address   was    delivered    by  Another- 7oiFsMng^good"timl^of'Mtfg  and music was enjoyed on Wednesday  evening, and on Christmas morning  about fifty of the men who are finding-shelter at the Mission were  served with breakfast iri the Mission  restaurant.  Special songs, solos, recitations,  and quartettes by some of the men,  with, an abundance of good congregational singing of carols and songs of  praise, was enjoyed on Christmas  night, after which the men were regaled with wholesome fruit and  candy. About 200 men were presented with copies of the New Testament as a token of friendship from  the Mission. Rev. Beatty delivered  a stirring and seasonable address to  the men, taking for his text: "A  Saviour which is Christ, the Lord."  Mrs. Dane and Miss Edith Henry  rendered several solos at each of the  meetings, and were warmly applauded  by the audience.  On Friday, between 4 and 6:30  p. m., the annual Christmas dinner  of the Mission was served���������about 400  men sitting down to the tables.  Roast beef and turkey headed the  bill of fare, supplemented by a bounteous supply of all the accessories of  the usual Christmas feast, including  generous servings of hot mince pies.  Long before the appointed hour for  the dinner a large crowd of men  gathered outside the Mission hall,  but the best of order prevailed and'  the men, without exception, acquitted themselves acceptably and in  a way that spoke of their appreciation of the kindness shown them by  the Mission. After the tables were  cleared a gospel service was held.  Rev. -Whipple delivering the address.  Vocal selections from friends added  to the enjoyment of the meeting.

The greater part of the grain in  the West was harvested under ideal  conditions last fall, and little difficulty should be met with in getting* seed  of strong1 vitality. Notwithstanding  this there are some individuals and  even sections of the Western Provinces that were not so fortunate at  harvest time, and now have seed of  doubtful vitality in their granaries for  the spring seeding.  Seed of strong vitality makes a  good start, helps to keep down the  weeds and finally gives the big yield,  while seed of poor vitality is a sure  loss. -  Therefore, every farmer who suspects the ."vitality-' of his seed, should  send a sample to the Dominion Government Seed Laboratory, Calgary,  for a germination test. In order that  the report of this test may be of  greatest value to the sender, prepara-  tofy-to-sendiiig-thersample^ he should  first clean his seed as for seeding.  Tod- pft"en:.; seed that is badly contaminated with wceda seeds is sown.  Every year the proportion of Western  wheat and oats which contains wild  oats, is increasing. Such grain must  take a lower grade because no satisfactory method of separating; it has  been devised; Samples of flax conr  taining 15 per cent of weed seeds are  only too common; this amounts to,  approximately, 200 bushels of waste  per car. When the cost of threshing,  handling and freight on this useless  material is added to the loss occasioned by the injury to the growing  crop, the net profit per acre is very  materially lessened.  Flax is the most badly contaminated seed which the farmer sows,  and since it is usually sown on new  breaking, his land is practically ruined  at the start. Farmers who have  clean farms, or farms.free from some  of the most troublesome weeds���������  wild oats, stinkweed, false flax, bail  mustard, tumbling mustard, etc.;  should be very careful to sow only  clean seed.  . The Seed Laboratory at Calgary is  at the disposal of the farmers of the  public, arid it is hoped that they will  make use of it in their efforts to obtain a pure seed supply.  In former years most of the samples ha-vc come to tested in March  and .April, overtaxing the capacity of  the laboratory, and sometimes causing- a delay in reporting on the  samples.  It is, therefore, urged that samples be sent in as early as possible  to avoid this delay and to enable the  fanner to replace his seed who thereby finds it unfit for use.  Should this meet the eye of Mr.  JohJL Latta or any of his family who  resided at Prestwick Toll, Ayr, Scotland, please communicate with James  Napier, of Ayr, Scotland."at 1752,  Thirteenth avenue E., Vancouver,  B.

A. KERB  The popular Reeve of South Vancouver fully anticipates  re-election for 1914. Level headed electors do not charge  J. A. Kerr's administration with the present financial depression and the many misfortunes that have laid a paralyzing  hand upon South Vancouver during the last few years.  Circumstances arise that no mortal can control. "Hard  times" are world wide, and not peculiar to Vancouver.  Mr. Kerr is possessed of many qualities that appeal to an  intelligent electorate, and the vigor of manhood adds to his acceptability. His plans for the future of South Vancouver are  laid deep and broad and reflect credit to his name. ' With  three candidates in the field it would.be difficult to predict  with certainty the outcome of the contest. Probably his  strongest opponent is J. C. McArthur, whose views are at variance with" Reeve Kerr 'a on several, points, particularly  Incorporation vs. Annexation. ;   .  The election will be viewed with interest by Greater Vancouver as success or failure may hang upon the electors'  decision.^.:-\..i;i:>���������::;:. .,^^.j;^;.-v\;%^_;^^.^L^i^-r;j.^-l^^v-  -" '' John Graham has been in Vancouver fourteen  years.
