London, Jan. 21.���������Lord Strathcona died at  1:55 this morning.  The aged statesman's last moments were very  quiet, and   lie passed away   peacefully in his  , Bleep.  r His Lordship's fatal illness was but short, and  . it was realized from an early hour Saturday  'morning that he was sinking beyond recovery.  An attack of catarrh, which would have been  a comparatively trifling matter for a, man in the  prime of life, was too severe a strain for one who  'had pafised the four score and ten mark well  over three years" ago.- The malady completely  prostrated him,.eventually inducing heart weak-  ;nes8,_���������80 that the aged patient sank into a state  of coma, the end looming peacefully at an early  hour Wednesday morning.  - Hon. Mrs. Howard, Lord Strathcona's only  daughter, arid to whom /the title descends by  Boyal patent; was present at the end, as were  other members of the family.  The house at 28 Grosvenor Square was besieged by inquiries as to the venerable statesman's condition, the King and Queen being solici-  tious, and with other members of the;, Boyal family, made repeated inquiries.  On his 93rd birthday on August 6 he attended  a private luncheon given by Senator Jaffray of  Toronto, and the same week entertained the med-  ~ieai congress. - -       - -      "  Qreat Blow to Him.  The death of Lady Strathcona in November  last was a great blow to him, but even then the  venerable High Comissioner's force of will asserted itself, and he insisted on attending the  funeral. A week later he attended the Hudson's  Hay meeting. This was his last appearance in  public, and the meeting in December at the Mansion House, under the presidency of the Lord  Mayor, to further,the scheme for the Dominion's  exhibition at the Crystal Palace next year, was  without the presence of the Canadian High Commissioner, who had been the first to take an active interest in the project.

Here's to the ''Higher Critic," who now holds a  pulpit down  In any church of Jesus Christ, no matter where  the town.  I want to speak thus openly just what I think of  you,  And of the things you're preaching from the pul-  ' pit to the pew.  ������  II.  You'boldly state that Moses never wrote the Pentateuch';  In fact, you tear to pieces all that's good within  the Book.  You tell us that poor Aiiam was never was in  - ��������� Paradise;  ' That Enoch never walked with God, translated to  the skies;  III.  That Israel never crossed the sea, a-walking on  the sand;  That there were never  giants  in   the   fabled  Canaan land; ._  The walls of Jericho fell not when rams' horns  sounded loud;  There was no ark of covenant or fiery pillar  cloud.  IV.  You relegate to mystic lore that Noah built the  ark;  That Cain his brother Abel slew, and after bore  God's mark;  God never gave commandments from the mount'  of Sinai,-  And never loved His people as the apple of His  eye.  V.  Samson never slew his foes with jawbone of an  ass;  Nebuchadnezzar, for his sin, was made to eat no  grass;  Poor Jonah never saw a whale, nor Daniel lions'  den;  Nor did God give the visions Daniel tells of with  his pen.  VI.  Elijah on Mount Carrael never met the priests of  Baal,  Nor did the fire from heaven fall and make the  wicked quail;  And Abraham, the faithful, never offered up his  ���������son; -    ------     Nor was Job ever tempted 'till the victory he  won.  VII.  The water never turned to wine; the widow's son,  of Nain,  Was never raised to life and health by Jesus  once again;  The multitudes were never fed by loaves and  fishes small;  You say, when all is done and said, there's nothing true at all.  You  vnr.  the.  dare to teach that Jesus never healed  lepers ten,  Nor broke the hold which demons had upon the  sons of men;  The Holy Ghost did not descend on day of Pentecost;  Poor sinners were not purchased by the Blood at  .such a cost.  ..\ ,:. ;:.>;IX..;-'" "���������''������������������ -..

Radical changes were made in the personnel  of the Municipal Councils in Greater Vancouver  for 1914. Whether for the better or not remains.  to be seen. That good men were elected may be  taken for granted, but that outgoing men are  inferior is open to question. Reaaona forHhe  sweeping changes, are .easily found, some of  which are:��������� ��������� ,  ,    r '    K  A shortafe in the money supply of Greater^  Vancouver, in common with the world at large.  The forced, idleness of thousands of citizens  with loss of income.to themselves and their  former employers.  General depression in business, resulting in  embarrassment, strained relations between creditors and debtors, business failures and wide  spread dissatisfaction and unrest.  Under prevailing^ unhappy conditions what  more natural than an attempt to locate the cause  of the trouble! Here as elsewhere the populace,  unacquainted with the underlying, principles of  the *^ebb and, flow", of the. money-nurj^^andfeis������??^������^-  being uncustomed to diagnose economic diseaae, ^  attach undue values to surface appeiSlnlowiSin^lM  nefirby forces to the neglect of the invi8Sble1b^*^|Siii������ ,"  potent causes of trouble.

The "ebb and flow" of trade are, in tlie main, as  indifferent to local conditions as the ocean tides.  Greater Vancouver is soon "coming into feeir;  own," not by virtue of the outgoing or incoming  of officials, but by the universal law of ''progress.'5 and the co-ordinate law of 'Hhe^ryiyal^  of the fittest."

One of the greatest  and latest is the surprise given the world by the  General-Premier of South Africa.  The Socialists and others undertook to put into  force one of.the most comprehensive strikes of  this century. By the time they had, nicely started,  they ran foul of the hero of the late Boer War,  and they caught a Tartar. ; ?  This man who figured so largely in the war, and  later in the councils of the new Confederation, as  well as among the Premiers who met in; Britain,  G,has given the whole world "a lesson in settling  strikes undertaken against the State. Britain,  Germany and the United States may be able to  make notes for the sake of comparison. As a matter of fact, France led the way last year or the  year before. But General Botha put inore speed  and drastic force into motion and effect. It will  ���������'be well to study his methods very carefully. One  must give him credit for fearlessness and sincerity  in his work. The results will be of deep and far-\  reaching importance, and there will be many observers watching j; to'get a true vision, so as to  guide themselves and others later. y       '-'^  - The fallacy of the strike has long been; per- i  ceived by many persons, and it is about time that  the Socialists and the!: W.

C, Jan. 13th 1913. ,  Western Call, City:���������  Dear Sir���������Here is a bit of information that is really worth repeating,  particularly now, at the merrymaking  time, Christmas time. The facts are  these: Some few years ago a poor  widow in Vancouver borrowed from  a money lender or logger, I cannot  give you the name, but he was a  money lender. He lent the poor widow some $75.00, I think. The money  fell due about Christmas. There was  sickness in the family, son out of  work, so she could not pay the  money. This money lender wrote a  letter, threatening to sell up every  bit of her furniture. In a terrible  distress she went to a lawyer. Fortunately for her this lawyer was hot  only a lawyer, but he was a man.  After telling him her troubles, he  said he will see what he could do.  lie went to sec the money lender, and  asked him not to take proceedings  against the poor widow, and not to  sell her furniture. But this the  money lender refused to do. He did  not care for Christmas or for any  other time, nor did he care for a  poor widow being turned out of her  house. The money was due to him,  he said, and "1 will have it" This  lawyer, who happened to be a man,  pleaded with this logger again and  again, but finding it impossible to  move this money lender to- a little  sympathy, gave up the contest, and  said: "Look here, Mr. Money  Lender, I will- pay you the money  for this poor widow, and some day I  will get it back." I want you to remember this, Mr. Money Lender, that  the day is coming when I will be  paid.'* I _ think this lawyer ought to  .have a monument built right in the  center of Vancouver.  "Sitting"' in his office one day^-25  loggers walked in and they wanted  this lawyer to put a lien on some logs  .'���������������������������for work done. He looked at the  , men, and said: ...- "Whose logs are  :'these?" ^ "They belong to a certain  ^ money lender or logger." "Ah," says  ?-the lawyer,s "I see, this is just the  'case I have    been    waiting   for.    I  have been waiting years for this to  come." Taking the facts from the  men, he said: "All right," and within  a very short time he issued 25 liens.  (One would have done, you know.)  But this a case where he wanted to  get back the $75.00. He issued 25  liens and put 25 sheriffs in charge at  about $3 a day. One sheriff would  have been enough, but then, you  know, there were 25 liens, and as he  wanted to ppt paid, knowing that  this money le er had lots of money,  he put 25 sheriffs in charge. On the  following day, down came Mr.  Money Lender or logger in a terrible  rage, saying he wanted to pay the  bill. "All right," said the lawyer,  "Pay the bill." "How much is it?" he  said. "Well, it is 25 writs, each at so  much, and 25 sheriffs at so much; you  got the bill." "Oh! but I am not going to pay so much," said this money  lender.. "It is a down right shame  for you to put in 25 writs and 25  sheriffs, running me into all this expense. I will not pay all this money."  "All right," said this man lawyer;  please leave my office; I have my  work to do." "But I don't want to  leave without paying my bill," said  this money, lender. "Well," said the  lawyer, "pay the bill and have done  with it, or I shall charge you extra  for my time." And this money lender  had to pay the money.  When he had signed his check and  handed it over to the lawyer, the  laweyr said: "Thank you, Mr. Logger. Don't you remember a few  fears ago loaning a poor widow $75  on her furniture at a big interest?  And no doubt you qemember ydu  wanted to sell her out before Christmas time, too, and no doubt, you,remember my putting up the money for,  her out of my own pocket, telling  you that some time I will be paid.  Now, Mr. Logger, I am getting my  payment back, and as you are leaving  my office, I wish you good afternoon."  Mr. Money Lender and Logger  had to pay the lawyer instead of the  widow paying the money lender.  READER.  Grandview  MIMOSA.  By its production last Thursday  and Friday of "Mimosa," a Japanese  comic opera, in the auditorium of the  King Edward High school, the Corinthian society set a standard for  opera work, which has never been  approached by any amateur organization in the city.  When the curtain rose each evening, the audience was astonished at  the magnificence of the scenery,  which was far superior to the average  theater scenes in Vancouver. To  fully criticise each principal would  take too much space, but judging by  the bursts of applause and the number of encores demanded, the society's offering did not go amiss.  Perhaps the two scenes which went  down best of all with the audience,  followed one another in close succession in the second act. The first was  when six handsome British officers  rather easily managed to instruct six  pretty Japanese girls in the difficult  art of kissing, and the duet, "I Take  Thee Forever," by Miss E. Mary El-  vin, in the title role, and Mr. H.  Geldert as Mitsu.  The chorus, both in action and  singing, gave evidence of most care,  ful training, and deserved the support of a better orchestra.

Such, was the offence  for which, according to the county records, Mjchael Stephens, aged 27,  suffered death by hanging at  Launceston on September 5th, 1820.  Now, it was no unusual thing at that  time for a man with a family earning,  when he was working, eight or nine  shillings a week of sixty long, weary  hours, and when he was not working,  which especially in the winter was  very often the case, he was on the  verge of actual starvation, to visit a  neighboring farm at dead of night,  catch a good fat wether, take it to  some quiet spot, kill and dress the  carcass, carefully burying the [entrails, etc., and share the mutton with  his neighbors, as hard up as himself,  or sell a part of it to the landlord of  one of the many public housesi' 'that  abounded all over the country arid  who often acted in collusion with him  in this and other things of this kind.  But I happen to know that "Michael  Stephens, aged 27," was a single man,  living at at home with his parents', so  what induced Michael to kill this  ram and steal part of its carcass must  remain a mystery unless we imagine  that in some lonely cottage one night  Michael and some of his select friends  had a feast of mutton chops and barr  ley bread on the quiet. Now, it happened that' some few,;months previous  to this tragedy at Launceston that  my father's uncle, Mr. Hichard .Men--  herinick, of Treguddick farm, near  Launceston, attended .one of the fairs  in the neighborhood 1 for the purpo'se  ofpurchasingisomclive stock;, uHe  was accompanied by my father's eldest brother,' a lad of 15* and after buying some sheep returned home, accompanied by a neighbor, a Mr. -r������������������,  who had; also bought some sheep;  both flocks being driven home together. The next morning Mr. ������������������-  discovered that one of his rams-had  been killed during the night, and as  shown on ithe records, "part of its  carcass,, stolen.

W.DOWDING  Captain and Adjutant  {>  to the arrest and conviction of Michael Stephens, jr., has not come to my  knowledge. But the young man, who  lived in the parish of Stokeclims,  land, was duly arraigned before one of  His Majesty's judges and a jury, composed of /12 "good men1 and true,"  who, after hearing the evidence, sol-������  emly retired and as solemly returned  bringing \n their verdict of "Guilty."  The judge then solemly, putting on  the black cap solemnly, pronounced  the sentence that "You be taken to  the place from whence you came and  from thence to .the place of execution and hanged by the neck until  you are dead and so on,* and the crime  crime stealing a few pounds of mutton valued at perhaps seven or eight  shillings, perhaps less.  T,hose were days when the gallows  , 'stood black in the way,  The larger the town, the more plen-  tiful they.  And the stealer   of    sheep    and the  slayer of men ;  Were strung up together there again  and ^again. ? ,  It was about noon on the 5th of  September arid; the usual crowd of  travelers and loafers were gathered  around the doorway and bar or  seated in the tap room of the "Sportsman's Arms;" still standing on the  main broad about half way between  Callington and Launceston, when a  heavy one-horse cart^ driven by a  heavy, stolid looking man,^lumbered  io^th^road^and ^topp^:^ the"  door. The cart contained something  covered with straw. The" driver  .slowly got off the cart, entered the  bar and called for a pint of four-  penny beer. Then taking a potato  "pasty"; from .his pocket, he seated  himself on a bench, and,proceeded to  eat h������s lunch. He was. at once recognized by one of the men, who  hailed him: "Hullo, Mike, where  e've ben this mornin'?" "W'y/ I've  bin ovvur to Lac.,' son, arter Mike."  "Arter Mike? YVhat'er appened tu  Mike?" "W'y, deddene know? Mike  was hanged this mornin' an' I'm  takin' him-'om tu Stoke tu bury *im."  So after coolly and stolidly finishing the remains of his lunch, Michael,  sr��������� mounted his cart and drove on to  Stoke with what remained of his son.  I am not sure but I think Michael  Stephens was the last man hanged in  England for sheep stealing. The execution of Wm.

Passing through the first narrows  of Burrard Inlet,' it way somewhat  noticeable that the. several swifter  going crafts were easily passing, lis,  but we could remember that the "race  is not always to the swift." But  there is "that noise." which, to the  unaccustomed ears, is, indeed, doleful.  When first we heard it after our arrival in Vancouver, my wife would  ask: "Where is it?" as we listened  in the hours of late and early darkness, to hVoft repeated call.  -If you have not guessed yet what  it is, perhaps the following description may help you. ;  It begins as if in the key of G., a  heavy, strong and full time, as if the  voice of some mighty beast in great  distress, 'and continuing; on for several seconds when it manifests a  slight decadence for a moment. Then  with a quick drop, it .ends, as if-the  great beast had fallen exhausted, as  it uttered what seemed almost its  last mighty groan, which, to one ,_..,. ...- a���������...~.  whose ears are in time, is not readily j While crossing a briuge on the re-  forgotten. However, as we swing serve I called out there's a big knife,  past the nine mile point, there it  was, the cause of that ��������� "Peculiar  noise." which had aroused so much  curiousity. And the vision we had  of it was quite effectual in unlocking  the door of our understanding. Then  the though^ came of what it all  meant and how it applied to life,  when I found the picture growing as  I saw the hosts of' men who spurd  not their lives for self, but for the  good of others, as they proclaim  with all their combined powers, while  lasts their breath and1 time istheus.  it may be from some position of  great eminence or from- the- most"  lowly of all places in life; the warning  so much needed and yet so much unheeded; to fellowmen of immediate  and pending dangers, just as that for-  horn.does every minute during the  passing of vessels in foggy weather.  That Squamish Feeling.  By and bye the ringing of the di%  ner bell reminded us of the flight of;  ment, expressing voiceless appreciation of the good things provided by  Host Mills, in comes Harry, the stager, to ask: "Did you get "your stuff,"  and we sang the chorus, "No-o-o."  "Well; its gone," says he. So we  guessed it was the "Indian who  knew," and we sent Harry hunting  for it. After supper the youthful defective department of the house sent  a detachment out, who located our  effects in charge of the Indian who  had left his pile near by ours, and sent  a lad for it, who took all in sight,  thinking it good enough. However,  our detectives ordered it back by  5:30 a! m., or there'd be trouble.  A Twenty-five Mile Wagon Trip.  A clear fine: ~morning, frosty air  and a good start to make the trip by  noon and we were off over a muddy  road on which the horses Jerry .and  Ben refuse to trot if they can possibly avoid it, while the Hriver boy  lays pn^-the elbow juice with' a brand  nevy whip. Not so with Crusoe, .the  dog, for. he is busy all the way covering at least a hundred jhiles in his  efforts, during which "time he put up  several grouse, which dropped thenr  heads to the tune of the 30-30 of Mr.  Elliott of. our paijty",' who is, by the  way, very much, at home in the woods  with a gun.

McKay Station, Burnaby  us,' we were prepared to avoid that  feeling which -comes too often .from  that class of cooks, while some of  those who partook, had more of "that  feeling" than comes by sight as we  entered the bay of the Squamish river  and valley.  Britannia's Store*  While the boat was landing a train  load of sugar, steel and iron (the  train was right there), we visited one  of this coast's most spacious stores,  the supply depot of Brittannia mines.  The train is very obliging in that it  promptly delivered the mail and baggage first and returned for the freight  at leisure. Soon we are at the  Squamish, and it is "All aboard for  Newport," but they called a stop to  put our grub on and away we went,  when the conductor spied a fellow he  had put off once, hanging on behind.  Stopped again and put him off. As  the train started the drunk threw a  two-fist sized rock, which the conductor caught and returned, nicely  missing the anatomy as it passed between his legs, at which he grinned.  Newport received its portion and  next stop is Brackendale. Just a  waggon road crossing-, but we pile  our effects by the road side, and await  the coming of our teamster, who took  charge of the lot to pick it up on his  return a bit later.  Some Thief.  While we were at our busiest mo-  all.  . Then  we  hit the  trail  for th������j  mountains.'' Inside the half hour we  were climbing hard, and our steam  rising rapidly.   Up and up, ledge after ledge, we went in rapid succession  until we; realized we were going too  fast, getting exhausted in bur desire  to get into the game.      But   alas!  How the best laid plans of mice and  mien will often gang aglee, as Burns  puts it, work as we would, we were  outwitted by the nimble game.   .Not  a specimen to be seen and Very few  signs , that are  fresh.    In  the  snow  belt going was easier, but noisy, for  the crust   bore   us, but   cringed at  every  step, giving the game  to the  deer.   Below, thesnow they were not  in evidence,' and. knowing the ground  well we worked hard all day or all  went home empty handed except for  a fine blue grouse cock which fell to  'my gun  away up at the. top  ridge.  Mack was home first, and busy getting supper when Mr. E. came, and  we went to it. .-  A Beautiful Sight.  Those who live always in a large  city like Vancouver and are so busy  making a smoke and some money that  they have no time to look for anything else, are not often' found looking upward at such a beautiful sight  as we are privileged to behold here.  The air is as clear and stillfand the  delighted.   Never has the writer been  able   to  see   more   stars,   but  would  plead   inability   to    intelligently   describe in an- astronomical way what    '  the  eye  could    behold, and    would,   >���������  therefore, leave the.rest to the readers imagination.  - Now it is Tuesday, and Mack and  I are early off up the river and the  Ash  slough  with  our eye open  for  goat,  while   Mr.   E.   struck    off. the  other way to look for the deer again.  On our way two Indians overtook us  who said four of them had kille'd six  goats yesterday.      They    also    said,  "No deer, no deer!"    On wtf went,  wading the smaller streams, walking  logs over bigger ones, till we start to  climb up the mountain.   Missing the  trail,  we had'a * hard,   climb, being^  forced to zig-zag, and once turnback  to find another possiblew ay.   In the  snow belt  at  first    the    crust bore  mostly, but about 3,000 feet upi it was  soft and two to three feet deep, letting us down to the bottom    of it.  One clear open  space near the  top  had two inches of hoar frost., on the  top of the snow.   The view from this  spot was' magnificent, as we looked  across and down the valley for miles.  The air was very clear and the day  fine and bright, and we had a rare  look at    Garibaldi, Goat    and    The  Twins, the other sides of which are  a  sight  from  Vancouver' on a clear  day.    Oh, hold on!    See those acres  of fine ploughed fields!    And there  were many' acres of ridged fields of  snow  lined  up  to  our  vision  away  over yonder, by the wind and storm;  But we must not linger here, so on up  we go over the soft snow, as we follow the trail of the goat, all of which  are leading Mpward and we arc now  some five  thousand  feet up, so we  swung off to find the trapper's trail   \^  to get down easy.   Plunge and stride  it  is  through  the  deer  snow  every  step till we reach the first line again  and we go easy for a while     Soon  wc   are  at  the   Trapper  Anderson's  cabin,  and  as   no  one  is  about  we  proceed  to  makel ourselves  at home  by sitting on the wood pile outside  as we eat our lunch, and slake, our  thirst from the sparkling stream that  trickles down near by.    What is the  cabin like, do you ask?   Well, let me  try to tell you.    It is about 8x10; is  built  of  fir   and  cedar   logs,   nicely  fitted and chincked with cedar shakes  and   moss,   with   shanty   /"nof.     The  bunk or bed occupies, one end, a center  post  supports the  r>oJ   and  the  stove occupies the corner across from  the  door  end. of th-j <*������bin,  making  a very neat butfit.   The cabin is in  the center of the most/densely wooded  part of the mountain, that being where  the trapper's business is done, and a  window about 12x30 on the down side  gives the occupant a fine view of life  among Ue trees.  But we must not linger here, for  the ;un has hid already behind a  neighboring mountain and we are far  from home, so on we go down .the  slippery snowy trail. As we leave  the snow line we.hunt for deer again,  but hunt in vain. Even signs are  scarce as we pick our steps down the  trail. My, oh my, t but we've made  good time coming down, and are glad  to strikev the slough again for a  straight away walk. Tired and hungry we make bur way to "home for  the night." The shadows are quickly  gathering, and the weather signs  prornised"acharige.7~~~     ~ ~~  Sore Spots.  True to its signs, there is a weather change, and it rains as conscientiousness possesses next morning,  and Mr. E. is on the firingjine again.  Breakfast over, off they go again ere  day has come, and I stay in to fix  things up a bit, and' I can tell you I  was glad of the chance, for ] was as  sore as 1 want to, be, just reminded  me of the after effects of the "first  of the season's effects" in the Gym.  classes I used to get into back in Ontario. In about a half hour, back  comes Mack, too sore of foot and  limb to stand the climb. After lunch  he was off again to tempt the fish  for a while, but good luck did not  crown his efforts.        >  In due time Elliott also returned  empty handed.  Saw One Deer.  Next morning, long before daylight, we were again climbing bur  favorite hunting ground for deer, to  be there first, if possible, on the spot,  but they had been ahead of us again,  leaving signs fresh' and also the fact  that the cougar were after them,  much to our disappointment and annoyance. Say, do. you believe it?  The cougar bounty should be $40 or  $50 instead of $15; then hunters  niight risk it to get them, for they  kill many more deer than men do,  and are at it all the time.  About midday Mack and I.drift together again and, as we round a rock  projection, he is a few yards ahead,  and fires twice while I come in  range, and there stands, about, V>0  yards away a fine young buck, looking  at us. I wonder why Mack don't do  business; so I pull at it's eye, and  down he: drops, as I remark: "Guess  I fetched him, allright," and I had  taken  him  under, the  eye,   the  ball  ������.������.������..������ ������������������������������������ . ���������������..������ . ������H.������ . ������ ��������� 0 . fr|.       ��������� ������ 1 ������ ������������������.������������ ������ . ������...������ . ������ . !������.������ ������ . ������. + ������ ������  Fresh Eggs Wanted  Are.your hens laying ?

Only $96,000,000, but bank failures - stopped,  business revived, the workingman had money  again.     ,  Last year, America's drink bill was something more than $2,000,000,000.  More than two billion dollars spent fort something of no value, something that returns far  below the average amount to labor!  Billions for Labor and Business.  Suppose we were to banish the saloon, close up  the breweries and distilleries and begin to spend  that two billions for legitimate products. ' It  would mean two billion dollars more business for  the merchants, hundreds of millions more for the  manufacturers, hundreds of millions more paid  to labor and hundreds of thousands of the men  now seeking work employed at good wages.  Shoe factories would run overtime, clothing  factories would have to turn away orders. The  makers of steel products, of vehicles, of furniture,  would be overwhelmed with orders and hunting  desperately for more workingmen. The grocery  man would need more clerks, the butcher would  telephone frantically for more meat to satisfy  the men who formerly spent their money for  beer., - ^; ���������.  Some Things Would Languish.  But not everything would prosper. The prison Would languish, for it is a known fact that  beer and whisky supply a large majority of the  prisoners.   The hospitals would be full of'empty  rooms, but then they could turn their attention  to fighting tuberculosis and helping the workingman to bring his baby past the danger stage.  The asylums would seldom open their gates to a  new comer, but when they had done their last  earthly duty toward the victims of drink they  now shelter, better uses could be found for them.  And the tax bill would dwindle steadily. But  who will complain about that!  Labor has the solution of its wrongs in its own  hands. Let labor strike down the saloon and she  will strike down unemployment, strike down the  small wage, strike down high taxes, liberate  thousands of workingmen from prisons and hospitals, crush forever the political alliance between corrupt government and corrupt business,  elevate the laboring man and his labor to a  hitherto unknown dignity.  Stop This Bobbery.  The breweries and distillers and saloonkeepers of this country have been taking two billion  dollars' worth of hats and shoes and automobiles  and other useful products out of the general  store and have been returning nothing but  whisky and dirt and disease and crime and insanity and just about enough .revenue to repay  one-tenth of the court costs and upkeep of asylums and hospitals maintained for their victims.  And you pay the bills. You pay it at the  grocery store, because these men are not making  groceries. You pay it at the dry goods store, because they are not making.clothing. Everything  is higher in price, because you are permitting  them to add the cost of their support to the cost  of your support. .

LARGER YIELDS PER COW.  During these short winter days,  when many cows are dry, and the  cows that are milking are not giving  very 'much, would it not be wise to  lay plans fpr improvement of the  dairy herd? Seeing that.the average  household consumes a fair quantity  of milk daily all through winter, and  seeing that the ice, cream trade is  not by any means dead during the  cold months, is it not a pity that  there is not more good milk and  sweet cream available? Current  prices and good demand should prove  an inducement to a larger number of  producers to go in more strongly for  winter dairying. ^  Some of the variations in yields  are very marked; it is a common  thing, month after month, to find  groups of cows in four adjacent sections averaging one hundred pounds  of milk difference, for instance, from  450 by even stages of 100 up to 750  pounds. Many of these poor, cows  could easily be giving, under better  conditions of feed and care, another  three or'four pounds of fat each per  month..

"You don't expect to ride  Prince Charley into the forest fastnesses, do you?"  "I could," she answered, promptly.  "I will, If you dare me. He can pick  hls^way like a cat. But it isn't nee-  pessary. Hell stand forever, the dear  thing, if I drop the bridle rein over  his head."  My preference was to have her on  foot at my side, and so I did not dare  ber.

"And if you dare to interfere with  an officer or his deputy in the discharge of his duty, the authorities  will settle with you," was my calm rejoinder. "Trot ahead, Jerry! His  bark's worse than his bite."  Jerry, quick to obey, disappeared  on the instant around the corner of  the bungalow, and Murphy, after a  pretended' dash forward, halted on  the lower parch step.  "See here!" he demanded, cum-  brously. "What's all this, anyhow?  You come here after gasolene, ostensibly, and then declare you're  game wardens after a law-defying,  Chinese poacher."  At last I saw him half-way amenable to <reason.   Now that he was out j  of tbe shadow, I saw too, more clear- j  ly, what manner of man he was.. His  head, as I had already discerned it  through the gloom, was   abnormally  large, yet not out of proportion with  his 'herculean torso.   His   red   hair,  frowsy, unkempt, was of such abundance that, in the dark, its outline bad  given me a. grotesquely magnified im- ���������  presslon.    His red beard,   too,   was  thick, long, and untrimmed. What lit- :  tie of his face showed, was sunburned  to what, in the dim light, seemed the  color of ripe russet apples.   His eyes  were nearly indiscernible, deep set,  under bushy red brows. i  'If you had shown the least bit of  humanity to brother men .fit distress," ,  I - responded, in a half Jocular vein,:  "I'd probably .never thought of this  being your place, and you being you;  and the incident of the morning  might have been forgotten." |  I thought I heard his teeth grit together in his effort to suppress a rising rage. I certainly saw his hands  clench; and then, with an assumption  of indifference, he took a final puff  at his cigar and tOBsed it, sparkling,  among the weeds of bis lawn. |  It was evident to me, now, that in  spite of the nonchalance he affected, |  my reference to the Chinaman's  poaching, and his presence at Cragholt, had aroused his Interest, and so  hoping to draw him out, I continued:  "Your man told the lodge-keeper  that you sent him over to borrow a  rifle."  "You don't mean to tell me you'd  believe a Chinaman, do you?" be returned.  "It wasn't for me to believe or disbelieve. The lodge-keeper believed  him."  "And so, he borrowed a rifle, and  then with one of Cameron's own 'instruments of destruction' proceeded  to destroy Cameron's game? Is that  it? What did he shoot? A deer or  one of those starved-looking white  dogs that Cameron has following him  about?"  Apparently Murphy knew much  more of my friend than my friend  knew of Murphy. '  "Neither, I fancy. In fact, I'm not  sure Just what he did shoot in the  way of game. But he seems to have  Indulged In a bit of target practice.  He found a piece of an old portrait,  tacked It to a tree, and shot holes In  It. Rather Billy, eht Foolish for him  to chance getting into trouble for  child's play of that sort."  "How do you know tbatr* he  growled, with an inadvertent dropping of his mask. There was no mistaking, now, that I had made captive  his attention.  "I saw tbe target," I answered,  simply.  "That's like saying,   1 caught   a  twelve-pound Pass.   Here's the   hook  and line to prove it'"  "I have a scale of tbe bass."  "A what?"  "Something your Chinaman dropped  'beside the tree."  Phlegmatic though he was, aome-  thlng very like a start followed upon  my words. Then, as if to cover the  movement, be shrugged his shoulders, and chuckled ponderously.  "His visiting card, I suppose."  "Nearly as good," I supplied. "The  bowl of bis opium pipe."  At that moment Jerry came around  the corner of tbe house and stopped  abruptly, stupefied by surprise; for  from the open mouth . of the giant  there issued-a roar of bass laughter,  that reverberated In weird discordance through tbe night silences.  "You bally idiot!" be cried, his guffaw ended.' "I suppose no persons except Chinamen smoke opium, eh!  And that being so, no Chinaman but  my Chinaman could have made a target of a piece of an old portrait and  dropped bis pipe bowl at the foot of  a tree! Go on with you, you make;  me sick!" And then, seeing Jerry,  wbo bad quickly joined me: "Didn't1  And him, eh? Well, that's not strange.  Having lost the bowl of his pipe, he's  probably gone to borrow another,  from a laundryman friend in Cos  Cob; and that, by the way, Is about;  tbe nearest place for you to buy gasolene,"  The next day I spent at my office,  in New York, busy with the hundred  details that-go to the making of a  periodical which alms to focus popular sentiment to a righteous ' viewpoint concerning matters of national  and social import. For the time being my consideration of Cameron and  his strange problem was suspended.  Now and then the subject recurred to  me, dragged into the mental light on  tbe train of Evelyn Grayson; but almost immediately it was buried beneath a question of editorial policy  or a debate regarding a contract for  white paper at an extortionate increase in price.  When, however, my business day  was ended, and I had boarded the  train for Greenwich, the whole Involved enigma spread itself again  before me, demanding attention. And  In the midst of it. dominating it,  stretching his great shadow over It  to the farthest limit, appeared  that  frowsy red giant, Murphy, a mystery  within a mystery; for, though he  seemed to pervade it, there vaa no  point at which I could discover him  quite touching it.  In vain I tried to detect a real connection. I started with the letters.  They bore no single characteristic  mark of this uncouth creature. As an  artist he might have devised the curious silhouette signature, but there  was something about that���������some cunning, inventive subtlety���������which I  could not reconcile with the ( ogre I  had played upon, stung to anger and  aroused to curiosity.  That he could either have conceived or executed the ruin of the  portrait I did not believe possible.  The conception, like the letters and  the signature, bore evidence of a  craftiness too fine for such as he; and  to fancy him, mammoth that he was,  stealing unobserved into Cameron's  stury, was to fancy the incredible.  And so, though the impression of  intimate relationship persisted, I  could find no point of contact, closer  or more definite than through his  servant's rifle practice, - which after,  all might have been quite without motive.  There was little, therefore, in the  line of reason, to convict Murphy of  any knowledge of the matters which  bad so disturbed us. And yet, as I  have said, 1 felt intuitively that he  possessed an intimate acquaintance  with the whole affair.  At the Greenwich station, I found  my touring car waiting; my mother,  in the tonneau. My chauffeur touched  his cap as I approached.  "You may drive, Francois," I .said,i  and I took the place at my mother's  side. , ^-  "You look tired, Philip," she announced when I had kissed her. "Was  it very warm In the city?" Her eyes  were ever quick to note infinitesimal  changes in my appearance of well-  being  "Not uncomfortable," I answered,  indulgently. "I had a very busy day,  though. But I'm not the Isbs fit because of it."  "We have had some little excitement here," she hastened, eager to  give me the news. "Old Romney  called you up on the telephone about  noon. I happened to answer it, myself, and when "I told him you were in  New York, and would not be back  until six, it just seemed he couldn't  wait to unburden himself. "Won't you  please tell him, Mrs. Clyde,' he said,  'that Mr. Murphy's Chinaman was  found at daybreak this morning, lying  dead, just outside Murphy's back  doorf"*  "Found dead!" I cried, In amazement  "That is what be said. Then he  added that tbe poor fellow's bead had  been crushed with some heavy instrument and that Mr- Murphy bad been  arrested on suspicion and was in the  Cos Cob .lockup."  For a full minute, I think, I sat in  silent amaze. Then theories and conjectures in infinite variety gave  chase, one titer tbe other, through  my excited brain. But it was more  than-ever difficult, I found, to .reach  anything like a satisfactory conclusion concerning tbe position, tbe now  lifeless Celestial and bis accuse'd master held> In tbe'chain of mysteries I  wished so'much to solve. That they  were both of them more-or less important links, however, I had small  doubt  "Did you know Mr. Murphy?" my  mother asked. And all at once I  realised that her question was a  repetition.' In my absorption I bad  not heeded the original Inquiry.  "Nobody knowB blm," J answered,  unconsciously echoing the words  voiced by the man In the catboat on  the previous night "Nobody knows  blm. But I've met,blm in a rather  casual way."  CHAPTER VI.  Nell Gwynne's Mirror,  With the approach of the twenty-  first of tbe month, which is to say  tbe seventh day following Cameron's  receipt of the second letter, I observed in him a growing nervous restlessness, which with praiseworthy effort be was evidently striving to overcome. Of my visit to the red giant  and the tragedy which followed it, he  was, of course, informed; as he had  been of tbe Incident in the wood, including the finding of the bullet-  pierced piece of canvas. Everything, save only that Bvelyn* was the  discoverer of the portrait remnant���������  which I thought best under the circumstances to. keep secret���������was told  ito him in detail, and with all the clr-  icumstantiality necessary to an intelligent discussion of even the minutest  feint   '  My description of Murphy elicited  from him a recollection. He remem-  jbered having seen the man once. It  iwas on the Fourth of July. Bvelyn  land Mrs., Lancaster, Cameron's housekeeper, had accompanied Cameron to  what is called. "The Port'of Missing  Men," a resort for motorists. On the'  summit of Titlcus mountain. They  bad lunched there and were returning  by a route which took them over a  succession of execrable roads, but  through some of the most glorious  scenery In the whole state of Connecticut For a while they had beeiv  following a stream, willow-girt, that  went babbling down over a rocky bed  which at intervals broke the waters  into a series of falls and cascades. At  the foot of one, of these they had  stopped the car and alighted for a  better view,' and so had come upon  the unexpected.  Seated upon . a great bowlder, bis  easel planted between the stones of  the, stream's shallows, was a redheaded, red-bearded Colossus, In a  soiled suit of khaki and a monstrous  straw hat such as ie worn by harvest  ing farmers. Cameron told me that  all three of them made bold to peep  over the painter's shoulder at hltf-  work, and then, though it was of the  moBt mediocre quality, to shower him  with laudatory and congratulatory  phrases.  "I can fancy how he thanked yon."  1 broke in, smiling. "I suppose, he  said something very rude."  "He said nothing at all. He simply  stopped painting, and turning, fixed  his eyes upon me. It was as if he  saw no other one of us. He seemed'  to be making a careful appraisement  of my every feature. After a moment it grew embarrassing, and  though I did not resent it���������feeling  rather that we, ourselves, had been  In the wrong���������I very speedily withdrew. To my surprise he rose from  ihiB stone seat; and, palette and  Inrush in hand, followed us up the  little acclivity to the road, watching  lln silence, until: we got back into our:  [car, and wheeled away."  , "Did you gather from his inspection  jthat he recognized you, or thought he  frecognlzed you?" I asked. .  "I gathered only that he meant to  Ibe Insufferably rude," waa Cameron's  answer.  ,   "And you have never   seen   him  p-eor-  ,   "NeveivT  "He has evidently seen you.   He i  {���������poke of the   Russian   wolf-hounds  ithat go . about with, you."  ,  i   Cameron made no response.  '__"Well," I added, In a tone meant to.  (wutitiru  Next Week.)

San Diego, Cal., Jan. ���������Former expositions have shown wild men and  women from the Antipodes, but- it  has remained for the San Diego Exposition to find a whole nation of  wild men within the borders of the  United States, a whole vast area  where nothing has progressed since  before the invasion of Mexico by  Cortez in 1517. This area is in  northeastern Arizona, and the Santa  Fe railway will cover ten- acres of  ground at the Exposition with *as  close a copy of this country as is  possible to produce.  This locality is known as the  Painted Desert. It's a land where  no white man has dared attempt agriculture or mining, where there is  nothing but the Indian, his ancient  civilization unaltered, living in six  story houses of 100 rooms without an  outside door, doing the sane things  in the same way his forefathers did  for centuries before white men came  to  America.  Comparatively few white men have  penetrated this district. None has  remained there. At long intervals a  scientist has penetrated the' fast,  nesses of the red and yellow hills.  Indians emerge from it occasionally,  but invariably return. Their homes  are the identical buildings erected  many centuries ago. Their pottery is  the same, used for the same purpose  and in tTie same rude manner. Their  customs and tribal laws remain vn  changed since when no man knows  to the contrary. They irrigate small  patches of grain just as did their  forefathers. The country repels even  the hardy prospector. Trees, except  those petrified into stone, are not  seen. No two hills are 'the same color. The very rocks are varigated in  hue. The pitiless sun scorches all  vegetation encouraged by the winter  and spring rains.  i  Members of the Santa Fe exploring  party declare the Painted Desert ri-  vale the wonderful Grand Canyon of  the Colorado in grandeur and beauty  of scenery. A second party has been  sent into it to gather material for the  gre'at exhibit the railway will install  at the San Diego Exposition, to. contain everything possible to bring from  *;11H 11 III H'Mil 1IH ItH-K 1 M 11111I1H1 111 11III U 11 j..

There is but one way,  and that is through legislation. This is scarcely  obtainable through strike processes and the  chaotic conditions produced by strikes. Of course  those who gloat in chaos will continue to advocate  the strike, but they who wish to really improve  the condition of the laborers and the masses will  seek a betterment through legislation.  MONOPOLY AND COMPETITION  The laboring men aim at cutting out monopoly  by putting it beyond the reach of company or private wealth to possess the tools of production.  The money and the tools which money secures is  to be absolutely wielded by the people through  their legislative representatives. If. this be the  goal, then the striking disjointers would do well  to turn their energies towards securing good  strong representatives of their cause in the parliaments of the various countries. To succeed they  must withdraw the senseless and brute-making  strike. So long as they use this method they will  fail in getting a majority of the electors to vote,  their way. The enlightened electorate will never  trust their interests to men who are ready to destroy life and property. But they would gladly  vote workers into the legislative halls if they are  possessed with confidence in their integrity and  humanity. This is in the hands of the united  workers, and they would do well to turn their attention to winning this confidence.  Socialists seem to imagine they must have the  whole loaf or nothing. They demand that government take over practically all the great industries and handle them in the interests of the whole  ' community. Why not attempt the attainable?  Why not"start with the Coal Mines? Why not  proceed to the Carrying trade afterwards? Take  one step at a time. Proceed on ground gained and  make strong and secure for the next matters coming to hand.  Now for a word on the logical outgo of the aims  of Socialists. Granted they do away with all monopolies and the savage competition of the present time by use of an Industrial and Paternal  Government, then what is the quick result after  things come to a normal status?  The government becomes the one Monopoly and  all others within the land cease, or pretty nearly  so. And it is reasonable to conclude that when  Canada attains to this condition, the United States  and other countries will not be far' behind. And  then what have we? Why," this. Each country  will be a huge monopoly and in international trade  there will be the fiercest sort of competition. And  this competition of the nations must inevitably  reach the units of the monopolies, to-wit, the human units. And to hold a successful struggle  against the other monopolies there must be a  lessening of reward, or a lengthening of the hours  ��������� of work, or both.  It would be interesting to have the shrewd and  able leaders of the Socialists show just how the  international monopolies can get along in international competition without���������.*.very fierce strug  gle ensuing, and^produeing results simila.r to those,  produced by the Company and. Private Monopolists of the present system.  IWHWOa JN WJWCKON  Whether we think of farming*- gardening, engineering, sailing, mining, pursuing chemistn, botany, entomology, mineralogy, or other engage*  ment of mind, we at once see that there are two  methods of approach and attainment of practical  knowledge. These two methods art,-���������by studying  what^ others have done, and by actual experience.  The latter I would say a few words upon at  present. It goes without contradiction that in any  pursuit in life we must learn: from others as well  as by our own testing and experience. This latter  may be called the Empirical Method. In the realm  of religion- we have ten thousand teachers, as  many;books,, ten .times _that many sermons* _ and"  countless exhortations as to our duty and the  method of serving the God of this big world.  And yet of late years the Empiric method has  largely dropped out of sight. How few men preach  to the human unit that in order to "Know the  Doctrine, He Must Do the Will of God ?" It is by  doing a thing we learn how. The man learns in  the forest to chop, simply -. by chopping. The  would-be musician must learn by playing. , The  acrobat learns by doing deeds of daring and celerity. So in religion. A man must find out what  religion ds by doing the works of religion? Here  we must admit that Religion is a very big theme,  and might be defined by as many descriptions as  there are types of belief, and nearly as many as  the individuals who are interested in this most  important matter.  He who "does the will of the Father," "shall  know of1 the doctrine." He who makes test according to the command of the "Christos" will  find that there is a life to be had by this process,  and by no other.  I would venture to ask you, men and women,  who read my writings, this question: Have you in  obedience to the Divine eommand accepted the  invitation to "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ  and be Saved?" Have you? In my1 question I am  on solid empiric lines. The-fact is plain. You  have life offered by the Saviour. And to enjoy  spiritual life you must do His will.  Have you so done? If so, have you found life?  If you were a pupil of mine in a chemistry class,  I would ask you to test the acids, salts, gases, and  compounds by the various tests of the laboratory.  If you would refuse to make these tests, you  could not have the empiric knowledge. What  could you know of ammonia, or nitric acid, or  sodium ciorine without testing? How much eould  you know by reading?  If a man never felt the pain of a toothache how  could he have an intelligent knowledge of such a  sensation by reading? Could a man who never  had the sensation and delight of love gain a clear  conception of love by a prolonged course of reading?   ,  And so in the realm of theology. Tens of thousands can pronounce the theological shibboleths,  and talk learnedly before large audiences and yet  they have never Tasted and Seen that the Lord is  Good. I humbly suggest to you my readers that  you make a strong and an honest test . of Jesus as  the Saviour. If He saves you from sins you will  know it, and only in an empiric way will you ever  be able to discern the spiritual life He offers to  all men. This practical, this-empirical religion is  the only sort worth one small bean on this earth.  And the man who has this life-spring knows the  taste of the Living-water brought from heaven  for thirsty mankind.  I wonder how many of our modern critics,  priests and pulpiteers are in the possession of this  energising boon. As a practical man I ask the  question of all who may read this comment.  BRITISH COLUMBIA GOVERNMENT IN  SESSION  The B. C. Legislative Assembly of 1914 has met,  opened and proceeded to work in its usual business-like manner.  It is a strong government and-.  legislative body because it is in the hands of  strong men. * , r  It is clear to all readers and close observers that  the strong men of the executive council know the  conditions of the country, see clearly the road to  travel, and continue their journey in a fearless  manner. This gives efficiency and.is in truth the  safest strategic ground for present and future  success.  A good many object to an oligarchic rule. I do  not.   In fact there is practically no other.  It does credit to the rank and file of the Legislative Assembly that those among them who support the Government have the good sense to give  their support without noise and the too common  political galley-play so often adopted.  I hear men condemn the Vancouver members  for their continued parliamentary quietude; but  so long as they are in harmony with the executive  council why should they make any sort of gubernatorial noise?  - In too many parliamentary and civic leaders  there are to be found representatives who think  it good politics to talk and splutter; and yet the  real work is done in committee where workers and  not talkers shine.  So long as the hegemonic leaders in the Assembly and Council so -act as to hold the judgment of  the electorate and the legislative representatives  there can be no good reason for an avalanche of  parliamentary logomachy.  We must heartily compliment the Government  for the strong position it has gained and hold at  Victoria and throughout the province. _  It is said that there is a great railway company  going to approach the legislative for certain  money, interest and debenture advantage. Already the people are using exclamation and inr  terrogation marks as to the real purpose of the  said Railway Company, and the course to be pursued by the Government, which exists and acts  solely in the interests of the whole people.  Hence we should have little to fear in this regard.  Doubtless if such a proposition be made by the  railway company the Government will see it wise  to<go slowly and take the people into their confidence, r .;   ."���������-"���������.���������  Prof. E.

The Sober Hunt Club  (Continued from Page 4)  -  had a fine young buck in prime condition. After an hour's vain hunt  for another we put rope on it's, head  and another on it's heel and proceeded to look for a place to get down  in safety. As we tugged and dragged, lifted and slid our game for  over a mile to where we could start  down in safety, Mack says, "Well, {  such a place to shoot a deer, anyway." We came across two blue  grouse on the way, one of which fell  to Mack's gun.  Having at last  found our way to  the valley we hung up our deer as it  was   already   dark.    The   down   trip  had broken back and horns clear off. i]  A Good Place.  As  we   came   down   the   mountain  the other day of our hardest climb,  McKinney says:.^."Welj^I'm^glad^jeJ  have a good place to put up;" anS I  agreed.    Say, let me tell you some--'  thing about Mack:   He's a wiser.man  than ever    before,  because    he  got,  married .since  our  last  year's  hunt;]  and "knows a good place."   And he  appreciates his new home very much.  Friday morning found . all- hands J  climbing ere the sun shone on us,1  and we proceeded to make our final]  big effort for thet season. Separating to a plan as we hit the gamel  ground, we were determined to miss  nothing in sight. But, do our bestj  nothing seemed to come in sight, for]  when we-met again in the valley to]  take our game of yesterday out, wej  were all empty handed. ��������� By and by,T  as we exchanged experiences, MackJ  says, "the sight on my gun is what!  fooled me on that deer yesterday, and]  I didn't know it till I missed a grouse'  today, and on examining it I found it]  shifted by a blow of some kind.  This is our last day's hunt for this*  season, and our stage is here to take  us out early in the morning, so we  bunk������in assa prelude.  > fc      Five Live Marten.     s  On the stage trip we were hailed  by a young man with two boxes, the  tops of which were made 'of slats  covered with iron, as was, indeed, the  whole box. As the lot came aboard  we saw five fine speciments of'live,,  marten addressed to Blake Vanettar,  Georgetown, Ont, who the trapper  Anderson said,had agreed to take all  he could send him alive. ��������� And this  we' learned was the. owner of the  cabin we had visited and is herewith,  described.- In answer to my question, Mr. Anderson says, he catchesj  them in traps by the paws and has his'  own time getting a strap collar on,  th������m. I believed him for as I looked  at' them each in their separate apart?  rhent, they would growli snap, and  spit at me, and it would sure be a  sore-finger that got in range. They  live on rabbits, grouse, birds, carrion,  rats, etc., in their native state. He  had a supply of meat for their ������trip  east. One had gotten" away after-he  brought it to the valley, and another  trapper caught it in his "killem trap."  Its neck showed the -strap mark.  Hunter's Assets.  Well, its a poor business that has  none, and when' a hunter completes  the trip and takes stock, whether it is J  alive, dead or watered, he will be invariably grateful for the fact that his  greatest asset is that his youthfulness  has been greatly renewed and he has  a new lease of life, i. e., if he has  used "the principles~an"d practices- of"  the "Sober Hunt Club." Let me cite  an incident: As we were making  homeward the last day, with our deer  I called at the home of the old trapper to enquire the easy and best path  out. The old lady with whom I  spoke told one of our party afterwards that, as she described me/ I  was about 22 years old. Some people  who ought to know, say I'll never  see 44 again. *So let it be, but I  have the young feeling. Then he'may  also remember the many little friends  he met as he climbed up and down  the roughest ol nature's slippery  places, and how glad he was to shake  with those thrifty little twigs as  they helped and never failed him' to  make a sure passage. Does the eager  hunter become thirsty that' he may  freely and frequently quench his  thirst by the choicest of aqua pura,  which flows invitingly near every  few minutes of the chase. To the  long distance eye there is the remembrance of the grandest of nature's pictures as the open spans of  the higher cliffs of the ridges are!!  gained at intervals in the climb. If  weary and wet he returns at night,  he may remember that the'game is  not all his. There are other hunt-,  ers,   .' ������������������. o    '  The Hunter's. Regret.  If there is one thing more than another that causes a true hunter re-  .gret it may be to see game uselessly!  slaughtered, just for sport, but when  the worst enemy of the deer, the  cougar gets busy, and that is as often  as he is hungry, there is not much  chance for a young or weakly specimen of our fine mountain deer. -So  the writer would repeat the desirability, of "lovers of this sport" seeing to it that our government ' is  speedily impressed with the need of a  greater bounty for the capture of the  cougar.  --,st_
