To Christian Believers in the United States and  1 Canada:���������  Dear Brthren���������  It is twelve years since the International Prophetic Conference was held in the City of Boston,  and many brethren feel that the times demand  another testimony to the doctrine of the premil-  lennial coming of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus  Christ." We, therefore, cordially and urgently  invite you to meet with us and others for this  holy purpose, at the Moody Bible Institute, Chicago, 111., from Tuesday to Friday, February 24th  to 27th, 1914.  It is believed that the signers of this invitation are a guarantee that the conference will not  offer an opportunity for modern prophets tp ventilate their speculations, to fix dates, or to mark  out a detailed.program of the future;^but that,  to incorporate the language of an earher conference, the occasion will he used for students of  prophecy to give prominence to neglected truths;  to employ the true principles of Scripture interpretation ; to warn against present day apostacy;  to awaken slumbering Christians; to present the  most majestic of all motives for world-wide evangelism; to call attention to the doctrine of "last  things" as a bulwark against the skepticism of  modern theology; and to bring into closer fellowship all those who "love Kis appearing."  To. those sufficiently interested to address a  postal card to The Moody Bible Institute; there  will be mailed in ample time, free of cost, a leaflet containing further information as to progra <*.  names of speakers, and details as to boarding accommodations. As to the last named, the Institute will endeavor to entertain as large a company as posible at minimum rates, but to obtaia  this accommodation it will be necessary to write  early^  Trusting that the Conference may witness an  unusual gathering of the Lord's people and an  unusual outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon  them; and seeking your prayers for the Heavenly  guidance of those who are responisble for its promotion and conduct, we remain, in Christian affection,  Your brethren in the Lord,  JOHN TIMOTHY STONE, Pastor Fourth  Presbyterian Church, Chicago, Moderator of the  Presbyterian church, U.

Forty million  dollars have been placed by Congress in the  hands of President Wilson to build railroads and  open up to industry and commerce one of the  world's greatest mineral resources.  Alaska has suffered much in davr< just passed  from conservation. Conservation wisely administered is a good thing. Alaska has had too much  sof good thing. Government reports claim 26,000;-  .000 acres of timber lands. It is all under forest  reserves, throwing restrictions on development  which, because of drastic bureaucratic stubbornness, have blocked completely industrial progress.  Geological survey reports give Alaska 22,000,-  000 acres of coal lands���������coal at the grass roots  and on tidewater. Yet, because of Government  interference, not a pound of coal can be mined  in Alaska, and this poor shivering province has  had to import its coal at from $14 to $30 per ton,  and instead of becoming a hive of industry, with  coke ovens and smelters humming the merry  song of life, Alaska has had to land its copper  ore at Cordova, tranship it to Tacoma, and then  smelt it with coke brought from 1,000 to 10,000  miles:   This night of folly is passing.  Since Alaska became American territory it  has produced $400,090,000, more than $200,000,-  000 of which was in virgin gold. The time will  yet come when Alaska will produce this amount  annually. For Alaska is a great country, capable of supporting many millions of people, and  giving every one employed a high rate of remuneration, i  ... ���������     '   ��������� ��������� ������������������'-"- /  :   The dawn of this day is in the sky, and it will  mean much to our Canadian Northwest. >  INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AliRICULTURE  In the Bulletin of Agricultural Statistics for  October a revision appears of the areas and yields  of cereals in the northern hemisphere for the season of 1913. The net result is that the wheat  yield in 20 countries now totals 3,277,208,000  bushels from 224,480,000 acres, or 4.2 p.e. in  quantity and 1.5 p.e. in area more than last year;  rye in 15 countries yield 1,605,714,000 bushels  from 99,612,000,acres, the production being equal  to last year upon an area 1.7. p.e. larger; barley in  19 countries yields 1,267,217,000 bushels from 62,-  370,000 acres, which is more than last year by 1.2  p.e. in quantity and 5.5 p.e. in area; for oats in 19  countries the total yield is 3,700,205,000 bushels  from 125,603,000 acres, 3.4 p.������. less in quantity  and 2.7 p.e. more in area than last year; jinaize in  nine countries shows a production of 2,775,025,000  bushels from 122,850,000 aeres, this yield being  22.3 p.e. less than last year from an area prac  tically the same.   Of the maize about 88 p.e. is,  grown in the United States.  A cablegram received from Rome on the 22nd  November reports that the preliminary estimate  of the production of Wheat in European Russia is  837,751,000 bushels, as compared with 674,706,000  bushels reported two months ago and 623,761,000  bushels the final estimate for last year; the yield  of barley is placed at 549,971,000 bushels, compared with 462,694,000 bushels two months ago  and 455,957,000 bushels last year; and that of  oats at 1,036,656,000 bushels against 884,762,000  bushels two months ago and 916,014,000 bushels  last year. These figures change of course the percentages above given, and the total production of  the countries that have so far reported to the Institute is therefore now for wheat 9.2, for barley*  7.5 and for oats 0.8 p.e. more than last year.  DR. DARBY'S IMPRESSIONS"  ->'  So Dr. Darby, secretary of the British Peace ^  Society, has gone from Canada to England���������and  the British papers are telling of his "Imprei-j  sions."   If he is correctly reported by the papers  in Canada, then he had better return and try to -  find a method of telling the truth.  What he says; ,  "as reported, is absolutely untrue, and he must n  know it, or he is a very ignorant man.  He either  knows he is ignorant-of the facto, or he knows  that he is wilfully misrepresenting facts, about o  Canadians and their patriotism to the Empire.''   '  Now I shall prove that his statements are very ���������  false.   Here is a quotation from the Newa-Adver-  tiser of Jany. 22, 1914.   "He (Dr. Darby) found,  for instance; the preponderance of public senti-  -  ment dead against the naval policies of both tha ���������-  Conservative and Liberal Parties."  I answer thai;  he did not, could not, and cannot so find, if he  '  find the facts.  And here are the facts.  When the Liberal Party was in power it repre*  sented one-half or more of the population, officially at least.   And so far as his party was .concerned, the Laurier Naval Bill was carried unanimously.  And-at that very time the Conservative '  Party found fault because Laurier did not go far :.  enough.   That party, then in opposition, and led'  by the Hon.' Borden, was more strongly, if possiT  ble; in favor of a Naval Vote from Canada, than ,  the Liberal Party then in power.  As time passed  the Borden Party went into power, and at once  the Government passed a strong and up-to-date:  Naval BiU, offering $35,000,000.00 to purchase  thr.ee Dreadnaughts for the British^ Government.������/. '  At the time Premier Borden passed tins Naval  Bill he had behind him over one-half ofr t||e Canadian people. Hence, as he represented fully one-  half, and the Hon. Laurier previously represented  on-half, surely Canada as a WHOLE has voted  upon and favored a strong Naval Support for the  British Government.  Now, why should Dr. Darby go to England  and give the public the rotten punk he has dealt  out to them? Is he true? Is he honest? Is he  ignorant? Is he a fraud? Can he be relied upon  for the future,' when he goes abroad to gain information, and then returns to give it out to the  home-landers?  The poor peace-loving man, while in Canada,  spent his\time among the goody-goody religious  faddists, everlastingly running after peace, a truly  foolish chase. They c ry "peace, peace, when  there is none" in sight, not even in existence. It  tires one to read the falsehoods constantly appearing in print as emanating from this class of reli-  gious~weakling8." They "meet withrantTtalk to;  their own kind, and, in conventions pray and  preach their foolish hobbies, and in the end almost  believe that they are right in their search and  in their conclusions. They talk of peace, everlasting peace, a thing never in scripture or out  of scripture promised to any human unit, and  absolutely beyond the possibility of acquisition.  Nature says, affirms, reiterates and necessitates  war. Dr. Darby prates about pea\e. His" Master,  the Nazarene, said that He came not to bring  peace, but war, and war of the worst sort. Why  do men lie in the name of religion? No wonder  the religionists of the day are spewed out by  sound-thinking meu. No wonder they have very  few real followers. No wonder that these followers are generally sensational and third-rate Christians.  I mightily object to these men running  around, seeming to claim that both Jesus Christ  and God His Father need to be converted to a  peace-loving hunt on earth, among the children  of earth-born men.  ���������   The whole of the scriptures are tinged with the  spirit and breath of war; and this is so, because  war is eternal,, universal and irresistible in its ,  necessity.  ' Dr. Darby and his sort should be in a universe  where there is PEACE; the quest of the lovers of  eternal quietude, which in plain English is everlasting death. Changeless quietude and peace  must be death everlasting. Dear Dr. Darby, come  back to Canada again, and see the actual men  who represent the.real nation and activities thereof; and then go home and tell your people that  .Canadians are overwhelmingly and unreservedly  devoted to the defence of the British Empire, of  which they, are'an important part.  Of course the peace-lovers, the newly-eome foreigners who care nothing as to the future of the  British people; and quite a goodly number of a  certain type of foreign religionists who have given  all their allegiance to an Italian who never was in  Canada, would be glad to oppose the naval bill,  any military bill, or anything   else that   would"  make Britain stronger than the lands they in their  hearts represent, or the foreign powers they prefer above anything else on earth.   Of this latter  . class I presume Dr. Darby is a type, or a living  . representative, if he be not worse.

THE SCRIPTURES CANNOT BE BROKEN  A Paper Concerning God's Israel Read at Prof. Odium'9 Residence  The Bible is a unique book. There is nothing  at all like it elsewhere in the whole world. We  call it the Bible or the Book and rightly so; yet  it is a collection of books; 66 in number, written  by different men, in different ages, during a  period of 1,600 years; under all sorts of differing  conditions. Written by men of highest scholastic  attainments and by men taken from the plough,  or sheepcote, fishing boat; by men who moved  in the very highest society, and also by men who  were called to it from the very lowest ranks.  And ye$ all these 66 Books are a unit, treating of  one theme, from start to finish; pointing to one '  goal in every instance���������God's planned Redemption and Deliverance of the Human Race.  Beginning rather over 100 years ago and increasing amazingly during the last 40 years, the  last desperate assault on the authenticity and  ���������~ veracity of the Bible is being made. This attack  comes mainly from Jewish Rabbis, the so-called  liberal Protestant pulpiteers and professors,' and  the "Modernist" teachers in the church of Rome.  If you hear of a preacher being called liberal or  broadminded these days you may know that it is  because he denies the authenticity and veracity  of God's Holy Word. He may be as narrow  minded as a'gimlet in every other respect, if only  he agrees with those who seek to destroy the  authority of God's Word upon the minds and  consciences of men, he is noble, liberal and broad-  minded.  These are days of extreme danger for all who  are content to let men teach them, without for  themselves studying the Word of God. Even in  the study of the Word���������if we approach it with  minds prejudiced by the official teaching of the  day���������there is deadly danger; for, as has been  wisely said, one can read into the Bible almost  anything one wants to find there. The Roman  Catholic quotes the Bible to prove his position.  , ^The Protestant quotes the Bible to prove his way  the true. The Mormon quotes the Bible to prove  that 12 or more wives is the way of true holiness,  whilst the Christian Scientist quotes the Bible  . to prove that man, if he would be holy, should  abstain from marriage altogether.  In view, then, of these things, which are of  ;common knowledge, we present the following  study on God's Word with deepest humility,  urging each one for him or herself to search  diligently to see. if these things be so < and not  too readily accept any teaching unless it be  thoroughly in accord with the main trend of God's'  Holy, Word. Remember that when Christ came  to Jerusalem, the Official Teachers of the Bible  had so twisted the Scriptures that they and the  ..people who followed them were blinded to the  truths, now so patent to you and me, so that  when Messiah, came, "according to the Scriptures," they laughed Him to scorn, and put the  Son of God to open shame. Jesus Himself warns  us that in the days just preceding His second  advent some such thing will happen in His  church.  Moreover, I firmly believe that.God has purposely hidden the truth, discussed in this paper,  ,from the ken of His people and the world, until  the practical accomplishment of His designs in  the establishment of the Kingdom of His ancients under a new name and with a new language, on the very top of the mountains.  Today this truth is everywhere becoming more  apparent, and God is now throwing the Light of  His Holy Spirit upon this phase of Bible truth,  convincing His pedple of Hia unvarying 'purpose, steadfastly revealed in His Word���������if only  our eyes had been open to behold it.  . The object of these meetings is to help our  fellow Christians in their approach to the Scriptures as we ourselves have been helped by others,  but if God does not Himself speak to you out of  His Word, we would wish to be silent.  Is the Bible a revelation from God?    If so  _ _there^must_be_a plan and purpose_running steadily  through it.  Is the Bible a unit ? Then there must .be a  line running right through it from end to end.  A theme that cannot be mistaken.  God's plan and purpose in the Redemption of  the human race constitutes the avpwed theme of  the Word of God. It is the All Red Line that  binds the Bible together, from the first pages of  Book I to the last pages of Book 66. In Genesis  God's plan is stated in the most concise terms.  In Revelations we see its most blessed accomplishment through the prophetic eyes 'of John .the  Revelator.  This planned redemption starts and is constantly sustained along two lines. First (as most  important) the Spiritual. Second, the Physical,  the sphere of the manifestation of the Spiritual  best understood by man.  . The Spiritual redemption of man is set forth  in Genesis, 3:15, where God declares to the great  Spiritual  adversary,  flushed with victory  over  Adam, that the Seed of the woman shall finally  . crush his head.  The Physical redemption of man as set forth  in the 12th chapter of Genesis, 2nd verse, where  God says to Abraham, "In thee shall all the  families of the earth be blessed."  These are the unconditioned covenanted  mercies of God to this world, declared from the  earliest pages of Revelation as the mind and purpose of God apart altogether from what man or  devil may attempt to do, singly or combined.  The Spiritual victory is to come through the  seed of the woman, and through no other agency.  sThe Physical victory is to come through the  seed of the man Abraham, and through no other  agency.  Christ, then, is "The seed of the Woman/'  through whom God has brought into this world  Spiritual redemption, so that "Whosoever be-  lieveth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."  This is the Heavenly calling. The way into it  is open to all. "Whosoever will" may enter in.  A Jap or a Hottentot is as welcome as a Jew or  an Anglo-Saxon. There is no compulsion. There  can he no compulsion. In this very thing lies  God's great difficulty in saving man spiritually.  The entering into Spiritual sonship with God, or  the staying there, must forever be a voluntary  affair. And, because of this, we have the strange  anomaly, an ever increasing number of Spiritually redeemed men and women, as the years  roll by, and yet a tempest tossed world, surging  with human passions, greed and lust of power,  ready today, as perhaps never before, to plunge  into a carnival of blood Why,? Because men  and women have not ti any sufficient extent  availed themselves of Gcd's Spiritual redemption  in Christ.  And yet no true believer has the slightest  doubt as to the efficacy of Christ. The Spiritual redemption is hure, and has been here for  well nigh 2,000 years, in all the power of God,  and all who will may enter in by the Door Christ  Jesus.  BUT! And this looms largely in the eyes of  the unbeliever, "What about those who do not?  will!"- Is this mixed condition of affairs to go  on forever? Is this planet never to have peace?  Is the earthly, Physical redemption of God, promised through Abraham, never to be brought in?"  To these questions���������more urgent as the years  * pass by���������students of God's Word have given a  double answer.  First.���������The post millenial view, which teaches  that God will, through the preaching of the Gospel  and Spiritual redemption, yet succeed in winning  all men and women' to Himself, and thus bring in  the millenium. They believe or at least they  preach that this world is getting better and better  every day.  Second.���������The pre-millenial view, which  teaches, in the main, that God will, at some specific time, intervene again in the affairs of man,  and send His Son Christ Jesus back to this earth,  in power, to conquor it and to reign over it for  1,000 years. These believe and preach that this  world is growing worse, and that the evil in it  will culminate in a combined rebellion against  God and His Truth led in person by the Anti-  Christ, who will give way only to the Glorious  Presence of the returning Lord.  This is to our mind the more scriptural view,  and yet there are portions of the pre-millenial  teaching that we know are unscriptural. For example, they teach that the Jews are God's chosen  people, whereas the Bible teaches that Israel is  God's people. They teach that the Jews, so long  stubbornly rejecting the Messiah, are to be suddenly converted and then become the great evangelizing agency in all the world, whereas Christ  told the Jews emphatically that the Kingdom of  God would be taken from them (the Jews) and  given to nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

DOWDING  Captain and Adjutant  Present and Prospective Development  of Lumbermen's Protective Associations.  At the request of the lumbermen  of British Columbia the Western  Forestry and Conservation Association held its annual meeting in Vancouver on December 15th. This association represents a body of over  four hundred lumbermen in Idaho,  Washington, Montana, Oregon and  California. The chief purpose of its  organization was to secure adequate  protection from forest fires, the  money being provided by an assessment based on > acreage of holdings.  The total area controlled by this association is about 20,000,000 acres,  containing fully 500,000,000,000 feet  of lumber, < one-fifth the total timber  wealth of the United States and almost as much merchantable timber  as there is in all of Canada.  This association, at an average cost  of between two and three cents per  acre and an aggregate cost of about  $200,000, maintains about 600 regular  patrolmen, besides a large reserve  force for emergencies, has built several hundred miles of trails and telephone lines and has installed numerous tool caches and lookout stations.  Large sums have also been spent on  educational work. Mr. E. T. Allen,  the forester for this association,  speaking of the fire loss on this immense timber tract in 1913, says:  "Reports to date on destruction of  merchantable timber estimate it at  three million feet, worth perhaps $5,-  000." One thousand five hundred  potential forest fires were extinguished.  This is the largest co-operative association of its kind in the world.  Probably the second largest is the  St. Maurice Fire Protective Association of Quebec, which has also the  distinction of being the first and only  one of its kind in Canada. The constituent lumbermen, whose holdings  total over seven million acres on the  St. Maurice watershed/ assess Themselves one-quarter cent per acre for  the maintenance of a fire protective  patrol on I his area. This association has only been in existence in its  present form since the spring of  1912, yet in two short summers it has  installed a system of fire protection  second to none in Canada. Speaking  of the dry summer of 1913, Mr. Ell-  wood Wilson, a member of this association, says: "The St. Maurice Fire  Protective Association lias had a very  successful year. Over 275 forest fires  were extinguished with practically  no damage; seven lookout towers  have been constructed and telephone  lines have been commenced. The  success of co-operative fire protection has been established beyond a  doubt."  What has been successfully accomplished by lumbermen in the United  States and Quebec can be done elsewhere in Canada, and with a view to  furthering this solution of the forest  fire problem, the Forestry Branch of  the Department of the Interior, Ottawa, is publishing a bulletin on cooperative forest fire protection,  which can be obtained free of charge  from the Director of Forestry.  Calgary, Alberta: As the days  pass interest is becoming more keen  in the oil development. Practically  all of the big railway systems touching the Northwest are planning to  utilize the oil fuel here. The C. P.  R. has acquired miles of oil lands,  and is arranging to start a thorough  campaign of prospecting work. ^ Representatives of practically all of the  big oil syndicates of the world are  ;on the ground working under the.surface to be in on the good things  when they develop.

The natives supply the labor, the native  chiefs supply the land and the Forestry Department supplies the seeds,  technical knowledge and tapping appliances. The profits are divided  equally among the three co-operating  parties.  The largest lake on the east slope  of the Rocky mountains lies at the  head waters of the Maligney river, a  tributary of the Athabaska. It is  twenty-two miles long and from one  to three miles wide, and is surrounded by lofty mountains which make it  one of the most beautiful spots in  the Rocky mountain region. Yet  this lake was practically unknown until a forest survey was made of this  region last summer by j!he Dominion  Forestry branch! ynfortunately,  there are no fish in.this lake, owing  probably to the fact that the Ma-  ligne river flows underground for  several miles, after leaving the lake.  The revenue from the forests of  British India administered by the Indian Forestry service, last year  amounted to over $14,000,000. The  cost of fire protection, tree planting  and administration generally, was  $8,000,000, leaving a riet annual revenue of $6,000,000, which the forests  are able to produce continuously,  without depletion.  The "Great Divide" is sometimes a'  very small affair in the Rocky moun-������  tains of Alberta and British Columbia. This summer a forest survey  party sent out by the Dominion Forestry branch, found that the headwaters of the Athabaska river in Alberta were separated only by a narrow strip of low lying land from the  waters of a lake in British Columbia  which drains into the Columbia river.  Were the outlet of this lake blocked  and a shallow trench dug for a couple  of hundred yards, its waters could  be made to flow east instead of west.  A somewhat  similar    case    is    seen  MILLIONS FOR  NEW SOAP PLANT  The formation is announced of a  gigantic British company for the  manufacture of soap and allied products in China, the principal figure  in which is Sir W.

MAYOR OF PORTLAND  WILL CLOSE CABARETS  Portland, Ore.,���������Mayor H. C. Al-  bee, Portland, has announced that he  will close every cabaret show in the  city this week. He has held consultations with owners of grills who run  cabaret shows, and nearly all of  them have agreed to co-operate with  the mayor in closing the performances. The mayor, who is commissioner of public safety, does not wish to  take official action to force the closing  of the cabarets until he finds that his  personal request meets refusal on the  part of the owners of grills.  KING'S  PRINTER DEAD  Mr. Charles Parmlee, Comptroller of  Stationery and King's Printer at  Ottawa, Passes Away.  Ottawa, Jan. 23.���������Mr. Charles  Henry Parmlee, the King's printer,  died Friday morning at 1:15 o'clock.  He was born at Waterloo, Que., June  1, 1855.  He sat in the House of Commons  from 1896 to 1908 for the constitn-  ency of Shefford, Que., and was appointed comptroller of stationery and  Kink's printer, February 1, 1909. He  had been ill for several months.  Calgary. Alberta: In drilling a  well about 30 miles southwest of  here, at a depth of 1,800 feet a high  pressure body of gas was tapped,  which is rolling out at an estimate of  3,000,000 cubic feet a day. The  strange feature is that it is "wet"  gas, which can be cheaply converted  into gasoline at the rate of three gallons to the 1,000 feet.  where the head waters of the Smoky  and 'Fraser rivers, though flowing  in opposite directions, have their  common source at the base of a great  glacier on Mount Robson, which  guards the boundary between Alberta  and British Columbia.  MORTGAGE   SALE.  Rabbits have damaged ' or killed  thousands of young forest trees in  the West by eating the bark around  the base of the stems.  Circular saw of paper are being  increasingly used in England for the  cutting of-thin plates of wood. Veneers made in this way are so -smooth  that cabinet makers can use them  without  further planing.  It is a common superstition among  the woodsmen of Eastern Canada  that many of the dead larch trees  have come to life again. The frees  noticed were not really dead, however, but had appeared so because  they had. been entirely stripped of  their leaves by the larvae of the  larch saw-fly. The tamarack is a  valuable tree because of its ability to  grow in swamps, and its wood is  highly esteemed for fuel, ties, fence  posts and construction work generally. Yet through the continued  ravages of the larch saw-fly over  one-half of the tamarack in Eastern  Canada has already been destroyed.  ,' Mr. W. N. Millar, District Inspector of Dominion Forest Reserves in  Alberta, says: "Along the north  fork of the Sheep river is found the  largest body of non-licensed merchantable timber which I have yet  seen in the Rocky mountains.. It is  rather remarkable that this timber  consists almost entirely of lodgepole  pine���������there was in sight at least tu>  sections (10 square miles) of this  timber."  Australian gum trees have attained  the enormous height of 480 feet, which  is 140 feet higher than the most gigantic sequoias in California, and  twice as high as the great firs of  British Columbia. How trees supply  their foliage with water at such a  height is still a matter of scientific  controversy. '  Of Valuable Property.

For the nine months,  ending December 31 of the fiscal  year, 1913, the total trade of Canada  was $857,856,893, as compared with  $779,587,053 in the same period of the  preceding year, an increase of $78t-  269,835 or almost exactly 10 per cent.  The imports, during the period were  $498,741,512, a slight decrease from  1912; exports showed an increase totalling $383,707,375, as compared with  $307,525,768 in the nine months of  1912,    .  The trade figures are regarded by  officials of the Trade and Commerce  Department as most striking, in view  of the financial conditions prevailing  the world oyer. There is probably no  country in the world which has made  a better showing during this period.  ; Sprmgridge.:; Lodge,.^No. 79, International Order of Good Templars,  held their annual weekly meeting in  the Cedar Cottage . hall, Victoria  drive, Friday evening last.

THE FUNERAL OF  LORD STRATHCONA  London.���������In Westminster' Abbey,  for a thousand years the hallowed  shrine of those whose record is writ  large in the history of England and  the history of the nations which have  sprung from England's loins, a  mighty congregation gathered Monday before the catafalque of Donald  Alexander Smith, first Baron Strathcona and Mount Royal.  King George and QueerTMary, the  Queen-Mother and the governor-  general of Canada were each represented, while there attended in person the ambassadors of foreign powers, high commissioners and agents-  general of the daughter states of the  Empire, doctors frohri the great  seats of learning, leaders of philari-  throphy, money-changers of Lombard street and Threadneedle street,  and merchants whose names are  known in the far corners of the  earth.  .Not since the memorial service to  Ambassador Reid, at which Lord  Strathcona was present has the Abbey contained such an assembly.  The service was of that simple, yet  marked dignity invariably associated  with any ceremony in an English  cathedral. Sir Fredrick Bridge, who  was at the organ*, opened with the  music composed for the funeral of  Queen Mary in 1694, followed by-  Chopin's funeral march. ' After this  there was silence in the. Abbey for a  space, and as the voice of the priest  was heard at the great west door reciting the opening sentences ���������"of the  burial service the congregation rose.  "O, God of Bethel, by Whose  Hand." the hymn which Lord. Strathcona recited a few hours before his  spirit' passed," was sung as the procession   came   along,  headed  by  the  Mngst  Lss Building,       Broadway and Main  PHONE FAIRMONT 1852  (At it here since 1900)  (A Trust Company)  We Have  MONEY  for  SM Term to  on close in  Unencumbered  Real Estate  AGREEMENTS  BOUGHT "������  COUECTED  SKort  golden cross of the Abbey, the officiating clergy, with the Dean of  Westminster wearing his cope, and  the choir in their crinfson cassocks  and white surplices, preceding the  coffin,    i  At: its side walked the pallbearers,  Lord Aberdeen, Lord Lansdowne,  Lord Lichfield, Prof. George Adam  Smith,. vice-chancellor of Aberdeen  University, of which Lord Strathcona  was chancellor up.to the time of his  death, W.

WONDERFUL VESSEL  VISITS VANCOUVER  Funnel-less,   Smoke-less,   Boiler-less,  Coal-less,  Ultra-Modern  Freighter  Pays First Visit Here.  Funnel-less, smoke-less and boiler-  less, with no firemen, no coal bunkers, and no stoke hold, equipped with  the last word in engine propulsion, the  Diesel engine, the Danish motbrship  Siam, Capt. H. I. Hansen, of the East  Asiatic company, reached port from  'Frisco Sunday noon, docking at  Gardiner-Johnson's wharf.  For the first time in history, Van-r  couver, among other, Pacific coast  ports, is being visited by this style of  craft. The Siam, which was built by  the firm of Burmeister & Wain Co.,  of Copenhagen, was launched in  March, 1913. This is her second trip,  the kfirst being made in April of last  year to the Suez, returning in October. When she arrives back in her  home port next June she will have encircled the globe.  Great Saving in Cargo Space.  The Siam has -very graceful lines,  is 425 feet long, 55-foot beam arid  depth 38 feet. She is built for a  speed of 11 3-4 knots an hour, and  her full capacity is 5000 tons. This  is ah advantage of over 1000 tons  that a ship of corresponding- size  that was equipped with regular engines for coal;  There are two sets of engines on  the Siam, one for each propeller, and  also two additional smaller Deisels  furnishing electric light and other  power. The two large ones are 1600  horsepower each and eight cylinders.  Any one of these cylinders may be  cut but for repairs without interfering with; the remainder.'' Another  feature is that with the eight cylinders it is impossible for her to stick  on center as is the case occasionally  with the regular steam engine.  THE CURE OF CANCER  *ted<  ^o^  CRLDITK)  MONT/HIY  SVBJEC r t.  CHEOvE  Duv.Fr&^er  31'/ -   ^2} CA>ni  Co h  NOTARY PUBLIC  Dow, Fraser & Co.  LIMITED  317-321  Cambie Street  2313 Main Street  Between 7th and 8th Aves.  M cKay Station\ Bu rnaby  The many and variously advertised treatments  for cancer do not seem to command the confidence or even the respect of the medical profession, however much they may stimulate the hope  of victims of that dread disease.  ,  'Without question, many cases of alleged cancer have been relieved by different agencies, and  no person* supposedly afflicted with ugly tumors  of any sort should despair of cure until thorough  tests, have been made of remedies properly offered.  But the bold exploiting of special cur^s for  genuine cancer invariably awaken the hostility  of medical men, and the institutes and dispensaries so widely advertised are regarded as bogus.  One firm has set forth the merits of its method  as "the only reliable treatment for cancer in existence, '' and a,, medical journal in turn denounces it as "a cruel and inhuman fraud."  It certainly seems a pity that the curists cannot concede that anybody else save themselves  have a real cure. It looks as though their very  claims practically substantiate the contentions of  doctors that-there is no radical cure for cancer in  advanced stages.  Much has been expected from radium as a cure  for cancer,-but even this hope appears now to be  shattered.  At any rate, the American Society for the Control of Cancer has sent out a warning against  undue optimism as to the curative power of radium, saying that it is practically limited to superficial cancers of the skin, to superficial  growths of mucous membraine which are not true  ��������� cancers and to some deeper lying tumors of bone,  etc., which are not very malignant. The problem  of the constitutional treatment of advanced inoperable cancer is still untouched by any method  yet devised or likely to be devised for administer.  ing radium.  "What, then, are the many victims of virulent  disease supposed to be cancer to do for themselves?  First of aUr: they may hope that they have  only "superficial cancers," or "some deeper lying tumors of bone," etc. They may suffer to be  done for themselves what the most reliable practitioners tell them can be done, and let the charl-  etans who covet their money only severely alone.  They may continue to hope that the last has  not yet been said or done to find a genuine cure  for any sort of cancer. It is possible that in this  progressive age the world may wake up any morning and find that the long coveted secret of successful cancer treatment has ben discovered and  will be made available to all sufferers.  Already many cases of cancer are under a  measure of control, and the number can no doubt  be increased by either diagnosis and better surgery. Dr. Joseph C. Bloodgood, of Johns Hopkins  hospital, Baltimore, declares that "cancer can be  cured in nearly one-half of all cases if taken early  enough."  This means that proper education on this subject is urgent in order that persons attacked by  cancer may take the requisite treatment '' early  enough."  Delay means greater danger, more suffering  and less hope.  I   Fresh Eggs Wanted  L Are your Hena laying?

RADIUM DISCOVERED  IN BRITISH COLUMBIA  ANNOUNCES PHYSICIAN  Radium ores have been discovered  in British Columbia, and last week  in' a lecture before the ChambeT of  Mines, Dr. F. L. de Vertfeuill drew  attention to the importance of this  tact. He referred to his address on  the subject of radium before the  chamber more than a. year ago, at  which time he said he was sorry no  radium had been discovered. He was  able to announce last week, however,  that an analysis of the water from  Sinclair springs, sixty miles from  Golden and ten miles north of Lake  Windermere, showed radium emanation, in fact, an analysis at McGill  showed this water to be the most  radio-active ever discovered. He had  no doubt: but that 'the water passed  through radium ore. For years: these  springs have been found beneficial  to the health of Indians and white  I persons.

STANLEY J CO.  2317 Main Street  Phono Fair. 988  The Playgrounds Association met  Monday night in the Board of Trade  rooms, when the retiring president,  Dr. J. G. Davidson, explained the  objects of the society and some of its  activities and Mr. H. L. Weir, representative of the Playgrounds Association of America, gave an address on  the work of the American Association on the Pacific coast.  The treasurer reported that $435 had  been spent in equipment for the two  playgrounds of Alexandra Orphanage and the Children's home and .the  secretary stated that there were 255  members on ' the roll. Mrs. Mc-  Naughton, representing the School  Board, stated that the four playgrounds of Central, Fairview, Grand-  view and Mount Pleasant ' schools  were opened for supervised play in  June in the evenings from <j:30 to 9  o'clock and during the holiday months  from 2:30 till 9 p. m. The total attendance had been 39,669, and the  moVement had been most poplar and  beneficial to the children.  Inspector~Gordon explained that.the  estimate of the School Board of $4,-  000 for this work at the beginning of  the year had been reduced to $1,500,  and this had naturally effected their  plans considerably. Mr: Owen declared the Parks; Board were in entire sympathy^with this movement.  Mr. H. L. Weir then spoke of, the  great' progress made in the playgrounds movement in Spokane, Seat  tle,  Portland, Oakland, Los Angeles  and San Francisco.  Officers of the Vancouver Playgrounds Association were elected as  i follows: President, Mr. E. W. Lee-  json; Vice-President, Mrs. S. D. Scott;  1 Secretary, Mr. J. H. Whittaker;  Treasurer, Mr. A.

Seatle, Jan. 24.���������"Single Tax has  not increased the tax of the home  owner in Vancouver," said Mayor  Baxter in an address at a banquet  given by the Seatle Commercial Club.  In 1896, he said, taxes there were  levied on a 50 per cent, valuation on  improved property. In 1906, he  stated, this was reduced to 25 per  cent., and in 1910 the valuation was  entirely wiped out and all taxes  levied directly on land. Valuation of  I taxable- property in Vancouver, he  said, was approximately one hundred  and" fifty million; with a levy of "20  mills. Taxable property in Seatle, he  said, was two hundred and. fifteen  million, with a levy of nearly 44 mills.  He said the argument favored the  lower rate, and instead of real estate  being confiscated, no instance of a  person losing property on account of  high-taxation had come to his. notice.  One, of the principle virtues of single  tax, he said, is-the publicity it gives to  private as well as public business.  Mount Pleasant Baptist Church.  Cor.

The threat  'contained In the second letter will  never be executed. Bee if I'm not  right!"  My hope of putting Cameron at  ease, however, was not rewarded. He  continued to exhibit signs of an almost constant apprehension. There  waa, indeed, a sympathy-stirring  pathos about the nervous disquiet of  this man, usually so Impenetrably'  self-contained. And at moments, In  aplte of me, a suspicion gripped and  held that he had not been entirely  frank; that somewhere In his past  there was something unrevealed  which might serve as a clue, if not  an explanation, to the present. But  these doubts of him were always  transitory.  The twenty-first of September fell  that year on Monday. My office demanded my presence, but I arranged  affairs as well as possible by telephone and devoted the entire day to  Cameron. When 1 told him I meant  jto do this he protested, pretending  that he was quite without foreboding;  while the unconscious tapping of his  toot on the rug, even as he spoke, helled hla words.  We spent the, better part of the day*  Sriling over the Apawamls links at  re, lunching at the club bouse be-  * tween rounds, for as a specific for  nerves I have ever found that game  of rare benefit. In the present instance It more than fulfilled my expectations. Cameron, apparently at  least, forgot everything save his de������  sire to out-drive, out-approach, and  Out-put me. And when it was over,  and with sharpened appetites we  drore hack to Cragholt for dinner, be  appeared stimulated br a newfound  courafe. ��������� .   j  The day had passed without unto.:  iward event, and I felt sure that my |  friend- waa gradually coming;   around <  (to my way of thinking. .

It was not large���������probably 20  feet square���������with three doors; one on  each of the three sides. That which  admitted from the passageway faced  that which opened into the bath room.  On the left, the third door connected  with Cameron's bedchamber. On the  right were two windows, giving upon  an outside balcony. Between them  was a fire-place.  To the left of the bath room door  was the entrance to a huge' closet,  guarded by a heavy curtain of old  rose velvet. To the (right, was a stationary wash-stand, and above it a  rectangular mirror, probably ten inches wide and a foot long, and very  curiously .framed..^ ' Across from this,  against the wall which divided the  room from the passage, was an-enormous chiffonier, or chest of drawers.  In the room's center was a round  table, on which rested a reading  lamp. Between the table and the  fire-place was a reclining chair. Other chairs, three or four, were variously placed.   '  I have given these facts because  ���������they are necessary to an intelligent  understanding of what I am about to  relate. That In furnishing and adornment the room was plainly utilitarian Is not.so material. But there is  one exception to this general declaia-  tion which demands to be specified.  The mirror above the wash-stand possessed a distinction quite aside from  Its practical utility. This was by no  means the first time I had seen it  Cameron had showed it to me, with a  degree of pride, early in our acquaintance, explaining that It:was at  once a relic and an heirloom. Originally the property of Nell Gwynne,  it had descended to him through  three or four generations of maternal  ancestors.  The glass was framed in colored  beadwork, to which were attached  wax figures in high relief: at tbe top,  a miniature portrait of Charles II- in  his state robes; at the bottom, one  of Nell herself, in court dress. The  king appeared also on the right.

According to the  legend which accompanied this Interesting antique, it was Nell  Gwynne's own handiwork.  It possessed for me a certain fascination due more to Its history than  its beauty, for It was not the most  artistic of creations, and as Cameron  poked about for his Baudelaire, I  stood gazing at the glass and thinking of all I had ever read of the Illiterate, but saucy, sprightly actresB  whose sole claim to fame bung on her  winning the favor of that easy-going,  royal hypocrite, Charles II.  ��������� ^Here'sjtneJiindingIiLL.beard Cam-,  eron say: and turned from the mirror  to the table, where he had found his  sougbt-for treasure beneath a pile of  heavier, grosser works.

And yet 1 was scarcely  prepared for the inexplicable ruin  which my sight encountered. The  glass of the Neil ''Gwynne mirror was  In atoms.  Cameron rose, a little unsteadily 1  thought, and coming around tbe table,  Joined me In closer inspection of his  wrecked hereditament. I can find no  word adequate to the description of  what we experienced. Amazement  and all its synonyms are far too  feeble for the task. We were certainly more than appalled. What we saw  suggested to me spontaneous disintegration. If such a thing were possible, which I believe it is not, it  might have explained the condition of  the ��������� mirror. No other ascription  seemed admissible; for, though the  glass remained in its frame not so  much as a splinter having been  dropped, it was fractured into a  thousand tiny pieces, resembling /a  crystal mosaic, incapable of any but  the most minute reflections. And the  change to this condition from a fair  iinmiarred panel had been wrought  without sound and seemingly without  human agency.  - For just a moment Cameron stared  in dumb awe. When he turned to me  he appeared suddenly' to have, aged  His eyes were lustreless, and his  'cheeks wore a gray pallor.  ������������������ "My God!" he murmured in a kind  of breathless whisper.  I would have given a great deal to  'have been able to allay that terror of  the impalpable which was gripping  him. But I was helpless. Shocked  and astounded, myself, solace was not  at my command. More to escape the  ��������� piteous appeal of his silent gaze than  in hope of making discovery, I turn  ������d in haste to one of the long win  Idows which opened on the outer bal-  jcony. Drawing back the sashes and  {flinging them.wide, I stepped outside  jand, listening, over the railing.  But the night was strangely still.  i There waB no sound, even, of stirring  'leaves.    A brooding    hush    seemed  1 spread over all the outdoor world���������  I that ominous silence which often precedes the breaking of   a   storm.     I!  looked    up    to   find    the    heavens  i wrapped in a pall of inky cloud. And  then, with a feeling of having fled  from a leaser to a greater evili I re-  ; turned to the   lighted   room,   and  closed the window to shut put tbe  horror of the night.  !had some brandy brought, and forced  Cameron to swallow a stiff drink of  ��������� it, in which I joined him.    But even  (this stimulant had small effect upon  ihim.   And when, finally, I reluctantly  ,bade him good-nisjht,    I    was    over-  'whelmed by the pathos of his condition.    So  wrought  and   tortured,  indeed, was I, by the sad picture of dethroned  courage "which   followed   me  homo, that sleep fled me and left me  wide-e>ed until the dawn.  The tidings which came to mo with  }my coffee that morning were more  ,than half expected. Cameron was ill,  and his physician had been sum-  imoned from New York.  1 When I reached Cragholt the doctor bad come and ' gone, and a'  grained nurse was , in attendance.  (Bvelyn, meeting me in the hail, conveyed this intelligence in a breath,  'and then, laying hold upon me, a  islender hand upon each coat sleeve,  pleading and anxious;  [her big eyes  ishe ran on:  i "It is shock, Dr. Massey says. Deterred shock, he called it. He says  Uncle Robert has suffered from some  sudden grief, fright, or other dreadful mental impression.

He waB  gay enough when you and he went  from the music room. What happened afterward?"  Caressingly I rested my palms upon  her shoulders.  "My.dear.little girl," I said, soothingly. "I am sorry I can't satisfy  your very natural Curiosity."  "But it isn't curiosity," she correct-*  ed, promptly.   "It's interest." '.-���������-  "Well, interest then. "I'm ' sorry, .1-  say. Something did happen; but to  tell you just what It was, and why it  was a shock to him, I am not able.  Not now, at least. Maybe, some day,  you'll know all about it."  There never was a more reasonable  jyoung person than Evelyn Grayson.  IMost girls, I fancy, would have teased  jand grown peevish at being denied.  ���������But she seemed to understand.  j "Do you want to see uncle?" she  [asked me.  I' "I don't believe it would be wise,"  jl answered. "Probably I, being a  {reminder, might do him harm. Tell  jme how he seems? He isn't unconscious?"-: ��������� ' V  J "No. He answers questions. But  ;he never says anything for himself..  [And, Philip, he looks so pinched and  (old and pale! And his bands are so  jcold. The nnree has taken away hi6  ^pillows and raised his feet, audit's gruesome, that's the only word  jthat describes it."  j   "But he'll  soon be  better?    The  doctor said that, didn't be?"  ;   "Yes.   He Bai^ that."  But the reaction which usually follows shock was only partial in Cam-  i eron's case, and for days his life was  in danger. Then followed a period of  slow, general recovery." '  I i As the month of October. pro-  'gressed I feared the liability to relapse. I knew, instinctively, with  what dread sensations be must be  awaiting the fourteenth of the month.  Cameron was standing where I'had -jg; ba4 been forbidden, of course, tp;  left blm.    He looked woefully tired  and haggard.. ^''-'  "Explain It!"   he cried,   hoarsely.  "My God. Clyde, explain itl"  yi would; to Heaven J could," was-  my forlorn reply  CHAPTER VII,  "From Sight of Men Into Tormtnt."  Seldom have I passed a more miserable hour than that which followed  upon the seeming phenomenon I have  described.   Cameron was   nervously  itt'tattera^atid m^  something more than threatened. The  sight of a usually brave, strong; self-  contained person of stolidly   phlegmatic temperament transformed into  a   relaxed,   nerveless,   apprehensive  creature is enough of itself to   try  one's fortitude, even with theimost  favorable collateral conditions. 4 And  the collateral conditions   here   were  quite the reverse. That which had affected Cameron had exerted an:,Influ- ,  ence upon me as well, knowing, as IJ |^J  did, all the circumstances and being)  interested, as I was. In my friend's;  problem.   And so while   his   plight  tore at my heartstrings, my own In-  receive any mail. Just as* be had4  been denied visitors; but I felt that;  in an uncertainty that must ot necessity prove injurious. And so I took!  Pr, Massey. in a measure, into my  confidence, and gained from blm permission to see Cameron for a brief  moment.'/' -.���������  "He has been asking for you," the  Physician informed me, "but I fancied it better to make no exceptions.  Now, however, I see that you may be  a help instead of a hindrance."  ;_Despiterr_the_more.i.or^less.sclrcum-,'  stantial reports as to his condition,  and appearance which had filtered to  me from the sick room, through the,  medium of Evelyn, Miss Collins, the  nurse, and Dr. Massey and bis assis-,  tant, Dr. Thorne, I was not altogether prepared for the marked change  which less than 'three weeks bad  wrought in my friend. He was peaked  and bloodless and tired and old.   And  bis voice was little more than a whis-  lL?ledi"U? 7ery iel,caifand b���������au' a"*������ty to b'������pp'������ v1^' ��������������������� ������������^ry  tlful polntil e traceries.   It was a ver- j c^,,^   ^ added   ^^4   dlf.  : ltable gem in its way, and I could not < tre>|<  'blame Cameron for his raptures.  j    When I had   applauded   and   be-  i praised to his content, he took the little volume from my hand and open-  j ing It, with a sort of slow reverence,  observed with something like patron-  ism:  "Fm afraid yon dont quite under*  stand Baudelaire."  "Does anybody?" I flung back.  "He is not so obscure as > bis critics  would have us believe," Cameron asserted.   "Sit down in that   lounging  jit is the most exquisitely bound little..���������.^h-Ir.-a moment, and   111 read   you  KTjlTmr.mW'   C������m* ".������������������*���������*  Jometblng."   And as I   obeyed,   he  ft to you.'  I excused myself to Mrs. Lancaster,  and with pretended   formality   bent  over Evelyn's hand, brushing it with  my lips.  "Won't you be back?" she whispered.  "I hope so," was my answer. "But  I can't promise."  "Oh, what a trial it. is to have a  selfish uncle!" she murmured as I  went.  Cameron led me through the library, across the hall, and thence into his study, where be dove into a  miniature book rack reserved for his  favorites. After a moment of fruitless  search be said:  "It Isn't here. How stupid! I took  it upstairs a week ago, I remember.  It Is In my dressing room. Do you  mind coming up?"  Did I mind coming up?   How glad:  drew up a chair for himself, speaking,  'all the while in denunciation of Tol-i  istbl and the injustice of his criticism.  One poem after another he read,  while I lay. back listening. To his:  icredit he read them well, though he  'paused of ten in mid-verse to explain  What he thought I might regard as an  affectation or, as Tolstoi has put it,  "an intentional obscurity."  There was one verse which impressed me particularly as he read  It, and remained with me for a long  while afterward, for, In view of everything, it seemed to have a special ap-  posttiveness. The lines to which I  refer have been translated In this  way:  He made a brave effort to smile, as  I came in, but it resulted in a sad  grimacing failure. I lifted one of bit  thin, clammy hands which lay Inert  oh the coverlid, but it gave me only  the feeblest answering pressure.  "I'm so glad you're better," I told  him, cheerily. "Fancy the doctor allowing me to see you! That shows  what he thinks."  "YeB," he whispered, "I'm coming  round, slowly. And I wanted to see  you, Clyde. What day of the month  Is this?"  "The twelfth."  "Day after tomorrow, it will come,"  be said.  "Don't be too sure," I replied. "I  think they've done about enough to  satisfy any ordinary villains."  He was silent for a moment. Then,  with just the faintest turn of his head  To my dismay I found Cameron  quite incapable of anything approach-,  ing a calm, common-sense discussion  of the matter, and realized to the full  the mischief which this last performance, coming as a climax upon a  week of more or less disquietude, had  effected. ;������kv".;-:  He Bat most of the time with head  bent forward and knees doubled,.his  itoes touching the floor but his heels  ;raised   and   in   constant   vibrating  'movement,  as  though   stricken: with  palsy.

In vain I endeavored to arouse him; to stir in  him a spirit of retaliation. Some one  was playing tricks upon him, and that  some one must be discovered and  brought to justice. Common sense  told us that, however mysterious  these happenings appeared, they  could not have occurred without human agency. It was our task to discover the agent and punish him. This  was my line of argument; but  through it all, Cameron sat unmoved  and unresponsive-  And then there came to me again,  that unwelcome suspicion that all  along he had.been hiding something  Tram Heaven's hl������n balconies '   from me> .������������* ne divined the cause  Bee!

"But they are not ordinary villains."  ���������Well," I said, "If it does come, I  Bhall find out how it got here; and  that will tea step towards bringing  them to justice."  "You'll find out?" he queried, incredulously.  "Yes. I'llo get. your'mail that day,  myself. I'll tell that monument of  pomposity, your butler, Mr. Checka-  beedy, that I am to Bee every letter  that comes to the house and know  how and by whom it is delivered. Letters can't get here without hands, you  know."  "Other things seem to be done  without hands," was. his conclusive  comment; and I had no reply for him.  Concerning Murphy and the murdered Chinaman, Cameron did not  ask, and I was glad he did not.   For  Murphy had been discharged from  custody, foi lack of evidence; and  though theLe were some desultory efforts making to place the blame for  the Celestial's violent taldng-off, I  doubted that they would have practicable result.  The precautions against surprise on  the fourteenth, which I had outlined  so briefly to Cameron, I carried out  with added detail. For instance, I instructed Romney to report to me every person who passed in or out of  the gates guarded by hi<? Lodge. I  had Kilgour, the superintendent of  the Cameron acres, issue similar orders to his men concerning any strangers seen on the estate that day.  And, finally, when not fetching the  mail from the post office, myself���������  and four times I made the trip���������I sat  on guard in Cameron's Btudy, waiting  and expectant.  But the day passed, it seemed,  without the looked-fpr incident. Every letter, liy post or by hand, which  came that day, Inside the Cragholt  limits was by me personally inspected, and amongst them all there was  no one which bore the faintest resemblance to those two baleful missives of tie two preceding fourteenths.  When I had made my last trip to  the post office, finished my final inspection, and was almost jubilant  over the significant cessation of the  threats which, in their ultimate fulfilment at least, had brought my friend  so close to dissolution, I made hagte  to carry to Cameron the glad news.  Oddly enough, his condition in the  past forty-eight hours had materially '  improved, and. as Dr. Massey attributed this, in part at least, to the influence exerted by my brief visit, I was  now permitted to repeat the treatment at pleasure.  It wanted but a few minutes of  eight o'clock, and Checkabeedy  seized the occasion to inform me. aB  I passed through the hall, that dinner had been waiting for nearly a  half-hour; a fact Which I knew quite  as well as he, but when I had chosen  to disregard in favor of more pressing and Important employment. Nevertheless! had dressed before going  for the last mail, and as a moment  would suffice to assure Cameron that  all was well, I relieved the mind of  the distressed butler, by assuring him  that dinner should not wait over five  minutes longer, so far as I was concerned.  A very light tap. on the chamber  door was answered by Miss Collins,  who came -out into the passage and  closed the door behind her.  "I fear it Is not advisable for you  to see him, now, Mr. Clyde," she  said. "He has suddenly had a return  of some of his worst symptoms, and  I am sure Dr. Massey would object  to his being at all excited."  "But I shan't excite him," I ex-  pained. "I have the very best of news  for him. It is his anxiety over a certain matter, no doubt, which has  brought about the symptoms you  speak of. I know I can relieve his  mind, which I have reason to believe  has been all day under an unusual  strain." .���������������������������������������������'  But still this efficient-looking,  white-clad woman was not wholly  convinced.  "It must he only for a minute then,"  she finally allowed. "You can go In  alone. But at the end of sixty seconds," she added, as she glanced at  the little gold watch she wbre pinned  to her spotleBs waist, "I shall interrupt you; and then you must leave."  Yielding, perforce, to her condition,  I entered. And as I did so. Cameron  half rose on his elbow, regarding me  with what I thought was anxiety for  my report.  ^!������It?8 all right/' I Bald, quietly. i/AU  right.    Not bo much aB a line from  the enemy.    They have withdrawn,  Just as I���������*���������  But he Interrupted me.  "Here, quick!" he was saying. "Take  this!"   And I saw then that one band  was drawing something from beneath  bis pillow;   The next moment *e had  given me a long envelope of that thin,  waxy texture I bad learned to loathe.  For a heartbeat I stood   appalled,  transfixed.  "Quick!" be insisted/excitedly.  "Open It! Read it! She'll not leave  us long and I must know its contents."  "But how���������" I began, as I tore the  end of the envelope.'..  "God knows," he answered, before:  I had put my question into words. "I:  had been dazing; about an hour ago.;  I stretched out my hand,, unconscious-'  ly, and that lay beneath It, on the,  counterpane. It crackled as I touched'  It; and I knew then, even before I;  recognized the feel of It."  Sixty seconds! Was there ever such;  an Interminable period? Sixty lohg;  seconds "before that door would open'  with the interruption that would  spare me. 1 fumbled with the devil-'  Ish paper; let it slip through my  Angers; tore a bit here and a bit  there; finished the tearing; and then,,  dissembling, began tearing the other  pnd. And still the seconds lagged;!  still the door remained stationary.  "My God, Clyde!" Cameron cried,  In ft frenzy of impatience. "What's  the matter with you tonight? Are  you never going to get that thing  open?"  And then L desperate, 'top, with  byes fixed Imploringly on the door,  was about to answer him with the  truth���������that I did not want tq open it;  that I would not, could not read the  contents; that he must wait and trust  me, absolutely���������when, quite without  design on my part, the envelope fell  Ito the rug at-my feet. And as I  stooped to recover it, I heard the doorknob turn.    >-  When I regained the upright, Miss  Collins was entering, and the letter  was in the pocket of my dinner jacket. -  "And so you see, Cameron,", I salu,  speaking distinctly and with double  puipose, the nurse being in ear-shot,  "everything is quite right. The matter you spoke of shall be attended to,'  at once, and I'll report to you, tonight���������before ten o'clock, surely."  The rerjroach in his eyes stung me,  and the pain of it followed me from  the room and slabbed me at intervals during dinner. And yet it was  not the part of sanity to have acted  otherwise tLan I did. The temptation had oi^urred to me to invent  phrases and sentences expressive cf J  satisfaction over the effort of the  previous communications. But I  doubted that, in my 'agitation, I  should be successful in the deception.  And so, my only course had been delay���������stupid, bungling, palpable delay  it was, I suppose, but after all it had  served; and, though it left Cameron  in doubt, it gave me time and opportunity to arrange some plan for extracting the7 fangs of thisT epistolary 1  adder before it could strike its prey.  Purposely I delayed reading the let-J  ter, myself, until after I had dined, ij  chose uncertainty as to its contents!  as less likely noticeably to affect my J  demeanor than ah exact knowledge of]  the minatory message which I felt]  sure it carried.  I think 1 fancied I should be ablel  to conceal my real state of mind. Cer-f  tainly I willed to do so.    But. I "was!  very soon conscious that Evelyn hac"  divined my dissimulation.    Her eye^  became suddenly grave and question!  ing, her laughter quieted, and her con/  vereation, which had been glad and  gay, relapsed abruptly into. the serl|  ous.���������'" When the coffee and    liqueur  had been brought on, Mrs. Lancaster  asked to be excused,    and    left    UE  alone together.

Let me humbly point out some truths that are  not generally considered by either of the great  sections of Bible students.       /  . "First.���������Joseph, not Judah, received the birth  right forfeited by Reuben.  Second.���������Israel, not Judah, or the Jews, were  ���������are���������and always have been God's chosen  earthly people.  It is the confusing of the Jews with Israel  that has caused the error and is responsible for  the blindnesses of today.  We all see clearly that Cod's Spiritual redemption is brought into this world through the  Seed of the Woman���������Jesus the Son of Mary. Do  we all see as clearly that God's Physical redemption is to be brought into this world by the seed  of the man. Abraham, and not merely by any of  the seed of Abraham, but specifically. "In Isaac  shall Thy. seed be called," and of Isaac we hear.  As it is written, Jacob have 1 loved. Esau have I  hated. Jacob had 12 sons and these 12, taking  the God given name of their father, were the  progenitors of the nation Israel, called "God's  Ancients," or "God's Chosen House," or "God's  Covenant People."  Each one of the 12 sons of Judah were allotted a special work in the history of the world,  described in Jacob's blessing '(Genesis 49) and  reinforced and enlarged in Moses' blessing of the  Tribes (Deut.:33.)   ,  Reuben, as the first born, had the birthright,  but fo"feited it. The birthright was given to  Joseph and not to Judah, as had been foretold in  Joseph's dreams.  In 975 B. C. national Israel was disrupted  and formed two separate kingdoms, always thereafter called Israel and Judah.  The question now arises, Avith which of these  tAvo nations did and does the purpose of God  abide? And upon the right decision of this question must rest our contention.  Official Christianity teaehes that Judah or  the Jcavs are God's chosen people and that Israel  is dispersed and lost.  The Bible teaches that Israel is God's chosen  people, and that Judah has been broken off, as a  branch, and will never be grafted in again, except as she returns physically to Israel, a thing  which Ave contend is uoav rapidly taking place,  and that for every Jew that is going to Jerusalem  100 are coming to Canada and the United JBtatea^J  [       The study of books other .than tW Bible -������*'' [y.  not helpful in this matter.

That later His honre city was Capernaum and not Jerusalem.  And finally, that the Jews persecuted and  crucified Him, and later on drove His Israelitish  disciples into exile in spite of the most tremendous signs and wonders the Avorld has ever seen,  whilst amongst the cities of Israel His gospel took  instant root and the largest single church this  Avorld has ever known Avas formed in Antioch,-  which became the greatest misionary force from ,  then till this present day.  ��������� y.i  ���������>v.

The Supreme Court jury hearing  the libel action awarded Mr. Alvo  von Alvensleben the sum of $25,000  against Editors Blockberger and  Schumacher. The evidence set forth  that a special suplement of the West-  liche Canada Post containing the  libel complained of was published but  not circulated in British Columbia.  Copies were forwarded to representative men in Germany, thus attempting to hurt the credit and reputation  of Mr. Alvo von Alvensleben.  Calgary, Alberta: In drilling a  well "about 30 miles southwest of  here, at a depth of 1,800 feet a high  pressure body of gas was tapped,  which is rolling out at an estimate of  3,000,000 cubic feet a day. The  strange feature is that it is "wet"  gas, which can be cheaply converted  into gasoline at the rate of three gallons to the 1,000 feet.  Dr. Darby s   Impressions"  tCtfitinuert  frurn  Page   I;  lovers of Britain today, for the sake of temporary  quiet, would hand over Ulster to the Irish Nationalists, who are the willing tools of a hateful  Italian priesthood. I wonder if the good Doctor  is not among that number.  AN AWARD: BAD OB GOOD?  It is a very simple and easily understood fact  that in cases of arbitration there must be a' final  decision, known by the name of "An Award,"  It is not and cannot be necessary that an award  be a "Good Award." This, on the face of it, is  short of the mark. Practically every award given  by a court of arbitration is called bad by one  side, and either fair or good by the other. What  would be called "good" by one party would be  an is generally caled "bad" by the other. The  Arbitrator is appointed to giye an award, but not  of necessity bad or good. He .alone is judge:  surely not the interested and conflicting parties.  There are two chief elements for guidance in all  arbitration proceedings.   These are, &*st:    The  arbitrator shall properly conduct the proceedings  from start to fnnsh. Second: The arbitrator shall  give the award, honestly, according to his apprehension and understanding of the facts produced  by sworn evidence. The above are the two main  an prominent elements governing all honest and  properly conducted arbitrations.  It is a mistake for an outsider or an interested  party to play on the words "good award" or "bad  award.'' If the above two elements are carefully  watched and applied, then the award is an award  inside the exact meaning of the law, and harmonises completely with the spirit of the Arbitration  Act of this or any other civilised country. A man  does not need to be a lawyer to see and understand this fact. Many awards have been given in  Vancouver of late, and, where the men have been  honest and capable, the awards have been  AWARDS: and this is, or should be final, according to sound sense, and ordinary enlightenment.  (Prof. B. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.)  the Key to Happy Ljving  The rewards of life are for service. And the  penalties of life are for self-indulgence. Human  service is the1 highest form -of self-interest. It is  a movement in the line of self-preservation.  We preserve our sanity only as we forget self  'in service.. "��������� '���������'���������->' :���������';..������������������'  To center on oneself .aiid forget our relationship to society is to summon misery, and misery  means disease, dissolution���������-death;"  .    Just a few plain rules, and the whole matter  of life is automatic and self-lubricating. ,  Health is a habit.  Drugs and chemicals that work while you  sleep are a little later going to prevent your  working when, awake.     ,  What we want is to be very much awake in  the day time and very much asleep at night.  And these things are possible only to people  who eat right food, think good thoughts, and  observe the every day, common laws of health.  It is a mistake to blame the medical fraternity. The fact is, doctors minister to the prejudices of the times, because they are a part of the  times. Doctors are men, just like the rest of us.  We have better doetors now-a-days than ever before in all history.  Nature intended that each animal should live '  to an age approximately five times the numbers  of years which it takes to reach its bodily maturity.  .,; Man reaches his height and maximum  strength at twenty; and should, therefore, live  to be a hundred.  The brain, being the last organ to develop,  and grawing until man. is past seventy, should  sit secure and watch every other organ decline.  As it is, the brain, with over one-half of the individuals who live to be seventy, loses4ts>power  before the" hands and feet, and death reaps something less than a man.  Health is the most natural thing in the world.  It is natural to be healthy because we are part  of nature���������we are nature. f  Nature is: trying hard to keep us well, because  she needs us in her business.  Nature creates man that he may be useful to  other men.       .  Action is one law of nature. Everything is in  motion.  Keep at work. Have a vocation and avocation��������� a job and a hobby: *  Do not overeat.  Do not underbreathe.  Live out of doors as much as possible.  Work, play> study* laugh���������flavor all with love,  and you have' tbe key to happy living.Nash 's  Magazine.    \    ���������*{���������.���������  How labor Can Salve Its town Wrongs  During the panic of 1907, when banks were  failing and business crumbling and wages being paid with clearing house certificates, when  they were paid at ail, $96,000,000 in gold was  imported from Europe^to relieve the stringency.

Shoe factories would run -overtime, clothing  factories would have to tur������ away orders.

The grocery  man would need more clerks, the butcher would  telephone frantically for n|pre 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 i$ a known fact that  beer and whisky supply a targe'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 work-  ingraan tp 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'-tbe victims of drink they  now shelter, better Uses could be found for them.  And the tax bill would dwindle steadily. Bat  who will ceniplain about that?  Labor has the solution of its wrongs in its own  Imnds. 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 hoa-  pitals, crush; forever the political alliance between-corrupt government and corrupt business,  elevate the laboring man and his labor to a  hitherto unknown dignity.  _1J^i_, JI^JCW* JlOjbJbjirjr,   ^     __  The breweries and distillers and saloonkeepers of this country have been taking two billion  dollars' worth of hats and shoes and automobiles  arid other useful products out of the general  store arid have been returning nothing but  whisky .and-dirt and disease and crime and in-\  sanity 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 eost  of your support.  How long are you going to stand it, Mr. Work-  iugman?  "THE CANADIAN-  FISHERMAN"  On    January   15th   the   Canadian'  Fisherman" made its initial bow to the  public of Canada.    This paper which  is published monthly,  is devoted to  the industry and sport of fishing, the  use and value of fish products.    The  paper  is  edited  by  Mr.   F.  William  Wallace,   probably   the   best   known  living short  story writer of fishing;  and seafaring life.    Mr. Wallace has  fished all up andN down our coasts,'  knows   the   fishermen,   speaks   their  language,  sympathizes with them in'  their  struggles,  and has thoroughly,  identified   himself   with   their   work.'  He has a big field to exploit, but wej  are  confident  that  he    will    "make]  good."  The time seems most opportune fori  the establishment of a Journal devoted f  entirely    to    the    fishing    industry.  Heretofore    fishing    and    fishermen!  were treated as a side issue, and had]  no journal in which their sentiments  could be voiced and the importance of I  their   work   kept   before   the   public/  That the industry is a large and imj  portant one is seen from government  figures.    Today,  there    are    ldO.C  men and boys engaged in the fishin*  industry,  while  the  annual  catch U  valued    at   nearly  $35,000,000.      Th^  amount of capital  invested in  boats  and   Other   equipment   exceeds   $2uJ  000,000.   At the present time, the-cos  of  living,   especially  the  rapidly  in]  creasing price of meat,_ is turning th|  attention of people .niore and   lnor^  toward the consumption of fis!.. while  the removal of duty' on fish entering  the United  States has given nn adji  ditional stimulus to the industry and!  fishermen are receiving higher ]>vi������e������  for their catch .than at any time' m\  their history.   The government is doing its full share in foresting the industry by the establishment of fisM  hatcheries on the Great Lakes and hy  restrictive   legislation   in   regard   to]  lobster  fishing on  the coast. '  It  is]  admitted,by everyone that the industry  is  capable   of  much   greater  expan.i  sion and we confidently predict that]  this will occur under the leadership of]  the  "Canadia    Fisherman"  and'  its]  able   editor.���������Journal   of   Commerce,!

His object is to compile aci  curate data for the Government. He|  will keep a log of all the drilling op.  erations in the Province, to get all!  possible information of the under-]  ground stratifications. This interest!  on the part of Ottawa is generally be-j  lieved to be the opening wedge fo|  substantial assistance in developing  the fields here next season.

Never cause was a greater than this one,  Mothers all should aspire for to win  Baby prizes, their name should be legion,  Such a motive would cancel much sin;  Then nations would risefrom oblivion,  And morals would profit thereby;.  Such manners Would hasten the millenium,  And babes then but seldom would die.  Mothers, too, would come back to the norinal,  In usefulness, comfort and health;  Things would graw less conventional, formal,  ......Fathers/top,.be possessed of more wealth.;".-  Simple living would tell a glad story,  Nature's laws would re-echo in song; ...
