D.)  ICHABOD! The once great and all powerful  [Liberal party in this fair Province has gone down  [to as smashing a defeat as was ever recorded in  [the history of any party, in any clime, at any time.  In a word, they were annihilated, pulverized almost to powder, aud then scattered to the four  [winds of Heaven.  This used to be the fate of the greatest malefactors in old time past, the stake, the Are and  T;he gibbet���������until these instruments had done  their work and society became more law-abiding  |md decent.  |> That is what is wrong with the Liberals, they  fere law-breakers rather than law-maker8-*-hav-  jng great power they used it to their party ends  find the public might go hang.  The comparison between their use of power,  hnd the beneficent use McBride 's 4^vernment  fnake of it, to pass sound beneficial laws, to promote industries, railways, new and good, roads,  found Universities, obtain control of their own  [ailway belt lands���������long denied, them by the Lau-  }ier government���������is so obvious that he who runs  (nay read���������and has read by the hundred and by  |;he thousand, as the state of the poll showed.  That these were all "rogues and fools"���������in the  hlegant phraseology of a party h$elcr*-^will in time  to come be remembered���������and not to that party's  (idvantage or profit.  That the Parks Commissioner did well in bringing Mr. Maweon, the eminent landscape artchiteet.  eo Vancouver, must be the verdict of all Who have  [ittendcd one of his many lectures.. Landscape  ['architect," by the way, seems an uncouth term  Lo call anyone, who presumes to help "lick, Gre-  lition" into shape by laying her out in more beau-  Iif ul and orderly lines.  I would rather term him a relayer, or re-arrang-  [ng artist than an architect���������too many now-a-days  |>rofane the use of that grand old word���������as the  funis building to-wit���������but speaking of Mr. Maw-  Jon, what struck me personally was the charming  [lumber of mistakes he makes in his suggestions.  Fancy advising one day to adflpt the only universal style of architecture, th^CWiwc--and another suggesting a Scotch BaroidaI~-crude as the  erm is���������for an artistic adjunct to Proipect Point.  Shades of oatmeal and porridge! What could  e more out of place than to see Sandy MoQov-  rn's old huinous Baronial stuck out on Prospect  *oint?  No sire! We want no old "Scotch Baronial*" 6ft   ;;  hraspect Point, hutif Mr. Mawaon ia |(gr4 up for  K subiaet i will give him a suggestion.   To that  locality J would put a .group of Indian chiefs  [with one tall sv^ltwiicarn^ut^^holdinis* bacfe the  wild fauna of B. C, the hear, the wolf, and the  mountain leopards being herded about him, driven  I back by the advancing force of another majestic  figure symbolizing CIVILIZATION:  Grave mother of majestic works,  From her isle altar gazing down,  Who God-like grasps the triple forks  And Bang-like wears the crown.  Such a group would be a famous setting to the  natural beauty of the entrance to our grand harbor, which it seems is destined to become world-  famous.  Now the elections are over, we shall soon hear  something more of the New-Timers League, which  J hope will have a successful career���������more especially in regard to that part of its programme  which aims at creating City Garden settlements, in  our midst. * A combination one may take t, of the  Garden City idea and these learned settlements  which abound in London.  The central idea being to have a common grass  court and tennis and bowling lawns, and a number  of pretty, home-like cottages grouped around. A  large central hall or club house being used for alt  kind of enjoyable soeial functions, with rest rooms  und studios, and of course a stage where the budding artist can strut his little day. In connection  with these settlements small culture could be very  profitably undertaken, and the whole business  ������-ould well be made a profitable investment���������and  a joy forever.  victory-tip: "solid five."  The Conservative victory in the Provincial  election was big enough to surprise even the most  sanguine. The electors recorded their unshaken  confidence in the McBride Government. There is  no room for doubt. A more formidable showing  <������f the Liberals would have added interest to the  campaign.   Opposition was light.  In Vancouver the "Solid Five" swept the  ^ hoard clean and everybody is satisfied. The vote  wds as follows: McQuire, 5,150; Bowser. 5;105;  McGowan, 5059; Tisdall, 5051; Watson, 5,000.  Prof.   Huxley,   whose   pre-eminence   in   the  world of science  is  recognized throughout the  universe and whose accuracy of expression and  ���������iearness of statement make him an authority,  [declares alcohol to be a poison., A friend wrote  illuxley wanting the opinion of the scientist as  I to the advisability of the moderate use of alcoholic  'liquors as an aid to intellectual effort.   In Prof.  [Huxley's reply he said:  "I understand that you  [fiak me what I think about 'alcohol as a stimulant  |fry the brain in mental work?'   Speaking for my-  | *i������lf (and perhaps 1 may add, for persons of my  temperament) I can say, without hesitation, that  fl-would just as soon take a dose of arsenic as I  would   alcohol,   under  such   circumstances.     In-  hiced. on the whole.  I should think the arsenic;  Uafer: .less likely to lead to physical and moral  ���������.���������-gradation.    It would he better to die outright  Ithan to be alcoholized before death."  Stott from tlfp Spai  The Resurrection of Jesus, the Christ, is the stronghold of Christian faith  and the chief hope of the world as to future life and immortality. Belying  upon this historic event the grave becomes the gateway of a larger life and the  threshold of heaven. Attacks of infidels have only served to bring this tenet  of our faith into prominence and to reveal the breadth, depth and solidity of  the foundation on which it rests. At Easter time we gladly commemorate the  resurrection of our Lord.  ?������  hrist the Lord is risen today,'  Sons of men and angels say;  Raise your joys and triumphs high;  Sing, ye heavens; thou, earth, reply.  Vain the stone, the watch^ the seal,  Christ hath burst the gates of hell;  Death in vain forbids His rise,  Christ hath opened Paradise;  Lives again our glorious King;  Where, O death, is now thy sting?  Once He died our souls to save;  Where >s thy victory, boasting grave ?  Soar we now where Christ hath led,  Following our exalted Head;  Made like Him, like Him we rise,  Ours the cross, tW grave, the skies.  ������������������''.-'*"���������>,.���������Charles Wesley.

Some years ago a New York pastor, Rev.  Charles A. Savage, requested a number of prominent men to state in brief space the strongest  proof or intimation of immortality they knew.  Here are a few of the striking responses, which  were printed in the New York Independent at  that time:  To me the strongest proof of immortality is  Instinct���������the instinct of a moral and self-  conscioua being, there are innate ideas. God,  space, immortality are such ideas. They are necessary, undeniable, absolute.���������George S. Bishop.  The Instinctive protest against annihilation,  conjoined with the demonstrable fact that every  normal liaed finds its corresponding provision.���������  DayJ4 B. Frazer.  Everything in redemption presupposes immortality, and bears directly upon it. The promises  of the Lord declare it. These promises are emphasized and illumined by his personal ascension  to the heavens. The Epistles and the Apocalypse  arc alive with the assurance of it; and all answer  to a true and vital intuition in the human soul,  which no people or person can destroy, and which  no careful student of life and history can ignore.  ~ R. S. Storrs.  To me the strongest proof of immortality is  the same that satisfied Paul:  "He who was manifested iu the flesh,  justified in the spirit,  seen of angels,  preaehed among the nations,  believed on in the world,  received up into glory."���������William Hayes.  My confidence in the reality of a future life  for man is based on the following points, taken in  connection:  1. Man's sense of the inadequacy of this life  piv.seiit"for the full development of what is latent  in him.  2. The historical part of the resurrection of  our Lord Jesus Christ.  3. The Word of Christ to his disciples, "Because I live, ye shall live also."  4. The marvelous effects wrought upon human society by the acceptance of this "Gospel of  the Resurrection" as true.���������William H. Huntington.  PRIACHURB' BOY8.  The sons of ministers are continuing to do  well.  A failure now and then serves only to prove  that parsonage-trained  boys generally succeed.  Rev. Christian R. Reisner recently preached a  sermon from which the Chicago Record-Herald  bureau gleaned these interesting facts:  "According to 'Who's Who in America'ministers' sons succeed in life 221 timw more frequently than those of any other class of people.  "In England an iuvestigator has discovered  that of the men prominent in English history  1270 have been ministers' sons, 510 children of  lawyers and 330 offsprings of doctors.  "An investigator selected one volume of the  sixty-six of the 'Dictionary of National Biog  raphy' and found that one in every nine was a  minister's son.  "De Caudollo, a French scientist, says: 'The  sons- of clerical families have actually surpassed  during 200 years in their contributions to the roll  of eminent scientists the similar contributions  of any other class of families.' "  Hail, then, to preachers' boys and may the  good tribe of them increase.  COLD FIGURES ABOUT GOAL.  When Daniel Webster was asked by a friend  what was the greatest thought that had ever impressed his mind, the great man bent his heavy  brows for a moment and then replied: "The  greatest, thought that has ever impressed me is  the thought of my responsibility to God."  E. W. Parker, coal statistician of the United States Geological Survey, says that the unofficial estimate of ���������* coal production in 1911,  is between 480.000,000 and 490,000,000.  The first record of output was twenty-two  tons, in 1814. By 1850 the yearly production had  grown to what was then considered the enormous total of 7,018,181 tons; by I860 this figure  had doubled to 14,610,042 tons.  This was less than the production for Alabama alone in 1909. The centennial year of 1876  saw a production of 53,280,600 tons; iu 1880.  71.481,570 tons; yet this is loss than the production of Pennsylvania in 1909.  In 1890 the production had jumped to 157.-  770,000 tons; in 1900. to 269,684.027 tons; in  1907, 380,363,424 tons; in 3910, to 4GO,S0H,416  tons.  What will the output be in 1920? What will  it be in the year 2020? Where is all the con!  coming from to meet this growing demand?  No wonder there is a lively scramble for possession of the Alaska coal fields. The speculator  who can establish in his family line a title to  boundless coal.veins will bequeath to his descendants the raw material for a thousand fortunes as  big as those of the Guggenheims and Morgans  and Rockefellers now.  (lo wherever there are ignorant to be instructed, timid to be cheered, helpless to be succored  and stricken to be blest, and erring to be reclaimed. Go wherever faith can see. or hope can  breathe, or love can work, or courage can venture.  Go, win the spurs of your spiritual knighthood  there.���������William Morlev Punshou.  The path of virtue is closed to no one. it lies  open to all; it admits and invites all. whether they  be freeborn men. slaves or freedmen. kings or  exiles: it requires no qualification of family or oi'  urupt'i-ty; it is satisfied with a mere man.--  Seneca.  |    (By Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc., April 1st, 1912.)  The Late Provincial lltotkm.  Like other writers, I must have a word or two  on the causes and results of the British Columbia  elections on the 28th of March, 1912 A. D.  The "Sun" tells the public that the Liberals  are thoroughly satisfied with the results of this  election. This is remarkable. The Socialists  elected two in the whole province, while the Liberals elected not one. The Conservatives captured  all the seats but the two the Socialists won.  And yet the Vancouver "Sun" says the Liberals' are satisfied. If so, they have concluded  that the government is safer in the hands of the  Conservatives than in the hands of the Liberals ''���������  who are within reach. It is strange. But it is  not a statement of truth. No man in British Columbia believes this statement of the "Sun."  Again, the "Sun," before the election, foretold  great Liberal,success.which was to perch on their  banners as a result of the free action of the electorate.  But since the election returned not one Liberal,  the same "Sun" informs the public that they, the  Liberals, did not expect to succeed.  Now what shall we say T  Is the "Sun'' an hon*  est, reliable paper?  Is it not an insult to the public to play fast and loose with falsehood and truth  in this manner t   Men will not trust a man who,  as a newspaper writer,- openly and co-ftantly  laughs at truth and belittles manhood and all that  stands dear to the best of human nature.   No  wonder the writers of such stuff are turned down  by the public- A man should not lie even in politics, much lest in writing reminiacencea on the  results of a great public struggle.   Mr "Brace''  should take this to heart.IJe ia not playing will  children.   Men are: watching Wa jugglery, *m  . press performances. He is but a young man yej,  aud has time to win J^e odpfidence of the publif;  but he eannot do Vt by misrepresentation aijd  coaipencss of language auch as is common in w*  editorial utterances. He can do better.   ?  A^d other writers would rejoice to sea him  converted���������from a newspaper standpoint A news-  paper should reflect the best and not the worst.  ***** *"���������"aT*^"|"^^^~ 4a~fm*~aa&<-^aa^afa**mjaa]am].-\ *a^aamaama^!*aaa~mmm~m*- ��������� **j^99W9 ***9r ���������'Of&9jlfa]*yl9t9*'+  It is no use hurting the feelings of those who  have been defeated.   I. am aiming at soma foundation facts.   Of course we are told that graft,  political pull, corruption, and other very bad arils.  are among the causes which so completely overwhelmed the Liberals and Socialists at the last  Provincial election.   But this says too much for  those who so say.  Let us see the exact meaning of  these charges.   Any man must know well that  there is no need of Conservatives buying staunch  Conservatives in such an election.   Suppose one-  half the electors are Liberals and one-half are  Conservatives.   If each voted truly according to  his party, we would have a tie.  But if twenty-five  thousand more vote the Conservative ticket than  vote the Liberal ticket, then what?  If graft does the work, then tbe leakage in  favour of the Conservatives must come from the  Reformers. Then it follows that those who are  purchased are the Liberals. Hence we see that  the "Sun" and similar papers are but saying  that their own people arc "open to graft and corruption."  But I take issue right here. There was no graft.  The vote was a straight, honest, honourable and  intelligent vote. Very many Liberals voted for  the Conservative Government, simply because it  has been giving the country good legislation.  Moreover the best and wisest of the Liberals could  plainly see that the conventions did not bring out  their truly representative men. And in addition ~  there was no coherent and applicable platform  adopted with which to win the electorate. Let it  be clearly understood that in no part of this world  can he found a more careful, reading and independent vote than in British Columbia. These  men are not bought and sold like sheep. They  stand for something of a definite nature, be it  good, middling or bad.  Now let us ask the press of British Columbia  why such a large number of Liberals voted with  the Conservatives, both at this and the preceding  provincial election? Further yet. Why did so  many Liberals vote the Conservative ticket last,  Kept-ember at the Dominion election? It is a-fact  that in British Columbia the Liberal Party has  gone to pieces. And it is not the result of Tory  money. It is not the result of the oft-asserted  Liberal graft under the Laurier regime. Money,  graft, civil-service rewards and the like had little  to do with the tremendous fact.  I shall not attempt to give the fundamental  eauses in these comments. It is well to let this  question remain for consideration a while. It is  of prime, national and internatonal importance,  and should be carefully answered. It eannot be  laughed out of court. It demands a hearing, aud  every honest, thoughtful Liberal is trying to solve  1he unsolved problem. And he will be thankful  for help leading to a solution, and to a reconstruction of the broken party.  Furthermore, it is of great value to the whole  public that the party he restored, at least to some  considerable extent.  In the next  number I shall undertake to give  some plain  indications of the course to be taken  (Continued on page 4)  4. THE WESTERN CALL.  ;'/!^i?"

It  may be contended that State and people are convertible terms; still the  State often regulates without reference to the will of the people. If then,  so utterly different is the system now  pursued to that inculcated under the  Biblical regime, that the moral training and education of our children is  taken out of our hands by order of the  State, what a responsibility rests with  the 8tate in arranging a coarse of education that at one aad the same time  should inculcate our duty to the God  and Father of all, as reflected .in our  corresponding duty to the fellow-  creatures of His creation.

And then the Master would continue in gentle but reproachful tones, "My lambs require  daily nourishment, more than my  grown sheep do.

Thus the iatlon recognizes the  necessity tor the combination ot religion with secular education. It Is  not without interest to note tbat the  average increase in Germany's population corresponds exactly to France's  decrease, namely, 25,000. In Switzerland, Sweden and. Norway, generally  speaking, some religion Is taught in  the State schools. In Australia and  New Zealand, I believe that It quite a  number of parents demand It, religious  instruction is imparted at stated times  during school hours by the minister  who represents their religious convictions. A friend of mine, who Is now  a rector in England and who previously worked in Australia, used to impart  daily halt an hour's religious instruction in the public   school where his  work lay.  Turning back to the fountain-head, I  would draw your attention to tbe place  taken by the Bible in the religion of  the people of the old country. T here,  at all events, in their common love of  God's Word, they stand shoulder to  shoulder, hand in hand, in their reverence, in their love, and in their study  of that incomparable Word of God. I  witneBB thankfully to its value as a  teacher, to its value to master and  scholar alike; its value as a fount of  literature, and interest upon history.  No one can read the best works in the  English tongue, whether prose or  verse, without meeting at every turn  the influence of the Bible upon its  greatest writers. I refer not only to  the works of strictly religious writers,  but to those of distinguished men, who  in some stage of their life seemed to  turn away from religion. At all times,  in prose, in verse. In the speeches of  politicians, and the writings of journalists, everywhere one found in the  best, its influence on the English people. Then, again, there is no tie which  has bound together all the members of  the Anglo-Saxon race with a closer  bond; and so unquestionably the power for unity for the common interest  among the nations will grow, as the  Bible comes to be studied more and  more among them all. The marvelous  preservation of the Bible places it in  the fore-front of all literature, sacred  and profane, and that alone should insure its careful study in our public  schohols.  It is now some. fifty years since  Archbishop Temple, in an essay of remarkable originality and power, drew  the attention of church people to a  truth as startling then as it is commonly accepted now. The truth he  endeavored to emphasize was what,  from one point of view, we may call  the evolutionary character of mankind's religious belief, and from the  other, the gradual nature of the process by which God has educated the  world; the particular application of  that truth is profound and valuable���������  namely, the gradual apprehension of  , religious ideas, and the gradual maturing of spiritual powers in the life his-  _. unknown Rook in the ci  schools. As a life-long worker with  boys and young men, I gladly bear  witness to the great work of the  church societies, but 1 have always  dealt with those who were daily  grounded ln the Scriptures; but here  we work at a discount, and contrary  to Divine injunction. We must agree  together on one point: The Bible must  be the foundation of our educational  system. We want a good intelligent  knowledge of the Old Testament stories, and a really close knowledge of  the gospel story���������these are the two  essentials. If thoroughly grounded in  Biblical history in the day schools, the  doctrines arising from such can be imparted In the Sunday schools and  Bible classes, am| the appalling ignorance ot the most elementary Bible  facts now shown in Sunday school  classes would be removed. Besides,  we owe dally Bible instruction to the  children of the thousands of old country people we are attracting' to this  province, who are accustomed to daily  Bible reading, and to whom it is a  rude shock to find that the old Book  they love so well is as "despised and  The following is the full text of the  latest Papal decree, the substance of  which has already been published in  our columns:���������  Transactions of the Apostolic See.  Official Memorandum.  Of our own Motion, concerning bringing Clergy before the Tribunals  of Lay Judges.  Though all diligence be employed in  framing laws, it is often Impossible to  guard against every doubt which may  subsequently arise owing to adroit interpretation of the same. Sometimes,  moreover, on the part of jurists who  have undertaken to investigate the  nature and force of a law, there are  such contrary opinions that what has  been settled by law cannot be otherwise ascertained than by an authoritative pronouncement.  This, we see, has happened after  the promulgation of the ordinance of  the Apostolic See, limiting "Censure  latae sentential." For among writers  who have expounded that ordinance a  great dispute has arisen concerning  Section VII.���������vis., whether the word  "compelling" applies only to legislators and public persons, or whether It  applies also to private individuals,  who J>y appealing to a lay judge, or  bringing an action before the latter,  may "compel" the lay judge to bring a  member 01 the clergy before his tribunal.  Doubtless the meaning of this section has been repeatedly declared by  the Congregation of the Holy Office.  But now ln these times ot Injustice  when so little regard is paid to the  Immunity of ecclesiastics, tbat not  only Clerics and Priests but also  Bishops, and even their Eminences  the Cardinals, are brought Into a  court of laymen; the case altogether  demands from us that by the severity  of the punishment we keep to their  duty those men who are not deterred  from an act of auch sacrilege by the  gravity of their offence. Therefore,  we of our own motion do ordain and  decree as follows:���������  Whatever   private   individuals;  whether of the laity or in holy  orders, men or women, summon  to a tribunal of laymen, any ecclesiastical persons whatever, be the  case criminal or civil, without any  permission from an ecclesiastical  authority, and constrain them to  attend publicly in these courts-  all such private individuals incur  excommunication at the bands of  the Roman Pontiff.  Moreover, it is our will and pleasure  that what haa been ordained by these  tetters be established and ratified, notwithstanding anything whatsoever to  the contrary.

Are the Stars and Stripes to be  draped In mourning? A dally paper  suggests tbst we might as well order  the black bunting for this purpose now  aa the opening of the Panama canal  four years hence will show the necessity for it.  The particular ground of complaint  is that as compared with other nations the United States has no shipping, no merchant marine, no home-  owned facilities for International traffic Hence the digging of the Panama  canal, at a cost to this government of  1600,000,000 is to be practically for the  benefit of foreign ship owners, unless  international war should demonstrate  the military and naval advantages to  the United States of tbe great and expensive two-ocean ditch.

Then would  Canadian children no longer sit dumb  in Sunday school, while the boys and  girls emigrated from the old country  are ready with eager hands up to answer the question? asked.  I will conclude with the words of  Bishop Perrin in his last charge to the  Diocese of Columbia on "Religious  Education":  "The condition of the children of  this diocese is far from what it ought  to be. I have tried to the utmost of  my power to press the crying need of  religious instruction in our day  schools, but I have failed. It is not  really our divisions: we could agree  upon a syllabus of Christian doctrine,  as 1b done in practically all the council schools in England. It is the indifference of ������o many, and the timidity  of politicians, that bars the way. But  it must and will come. Morals without religion are on the most uncertain  foundation. The fruits are becoming  apparent to those who are behind the  scenes of life. It is not only that  honor, duty, reverence are waning;  but the deadly sin of imourity, and the  ruin of bodies and souls through unbridled . passion and lust is an apnal-  ling fact that we have to face.    The  Christian doctrine that our bodies are  "the temples of the Holy Ghost" will  alone keep our boys and girls, as well  as our men and women, from yielding  to those temptations that are rampant  in our midst, and may God hasten the  time when it may again be taught in  the day schools of this province."  It only remains for me to add that  each province of the Dominion of Canada   regulates   its   own   educational  code;  and it should not be a difficult  matter to bring sufficient influence to  bear on the government of this province, so largely peopled by families  from  the old country to whom daily  Bible instruction is part and parcel of  their nature, to grant permission. for  the Bible to be taught daily   in   our  schools.  Other Canadian provinces, much less  British than this, have done so; and if  our   provincial" government   saw that  the religious community were bent on  having it, it wouid assuredly come.  ���������>'������������������!��������� f~  Tbe Reflabte Sheet Metal Works  3127Westminster R4* Phone: Fairmont868  ������������������ -    -        ���������        ���������������,      . -   - ���������  Cornkea, Jobbing and Roofing  FU JtNACE WOUK A SPECIALTY.

It is necessary, however, that we should be alert,  and sharply on the lookout for a good  market.  The Argentine presents a profitable  market for the manufacturers of printing paper. Owing to the paper industry being a prominent one in Canada,  and likely to grow to much larger proportions in the future, this trade  should be of particular interest to the  mills, or to those which may be reaching out for an extended market.  The detailed statistics for 1909, the  latest to date, show that for the quinquennial period ending that year, the  republic imported 59,440.918 kilos, or,  approximately 60,000 metric tons, valued at $3,566,449 gold. A metric ton  Ib equivalent to 2,200 lbs. The average for the five years was about 12,000  tons per annum. But the consumption  of this article would appear to be a  rapidly increasing one. as the imports  for the year i909 amounted to over  16,000 tons, which marked an Increase  over the previous twelve months of  nearly 3,500 tonB. The fiscal year,  ending December 31, 1910, bears out  this statement, for-the imports rose to  23,602 metric tons, and the returns for  the first nine months of 1911, furnish  farther proof, as during this period,  they are given as 19,544 tons, which  1b 2,272 tons better than the same  period of the preceding year.  Although the Dominion has vast  pulpwood forests, unmeasured water-  power, large mills, and, in every way,  would seem to be intended by nature  to be the greatest producer of paper  in the world, up to the present, her  manufacturers have evinced but small  Interest in this great market   From!  Is so necessary, and if fair dealing that  is so decirable.  Op- But whatever the arrangement may  be, a permanent representative is essential to success. . Some mills have  tried the experiment of sending a man  to this country periodically, to call  upon the newspapers; but the plan  has not answered. The publishers  here will not be hurried into making  contracts, and for good reasons or no  reasons at all, will not infrequently  put an agent off many times, so that  he may have to return again and again.  In addition there is a certain time in  the year when contracts are made and  renewed, so that it is practically useless to try to do business at any other.  Besides, the personal factor enters  largely into these matters.  Packing or Printing Paper.  The German method of packing is to  enclose each roll in wood, out this adds  much to the cost, that is not warranted by the risk of damage. The United  States shippers content themselves  with wrapping each bale in burlap,  which,, with careful handling, is sufficient. But packing is a matter for  discrimination, and should depend  upon the treatment likely to be experienced. For example, if a consignment were destined to a port where  it would be necessary to transfer it to  lighters in the open roadstead, the  packing would necessarily need to be  more secure than if discharged on to a  quay, or even Into lighters inside of a  harbor.  Expert Assistance.  Where a vigorous campaign may  have been determined upon, it would  be well to consider the permanent  maintenance of an expert from the  factory, on this continent Such a  man, with say his headquarters, in  Buenos Ayres, would be in a position  to aid not only the agents in this republic* but those also in Brazil, Uruguay and Chill, ln selling the factory's  . product, and he would be available for  the 1909 report, it is found that Can-jticta|cal advice whenever this might  ada is credited with a poor 1,747 tons,'De n^cg^Bary>  for the quinquennial period ending that  year, and that her trade .was declining, for in the last twelve months, her  shipments only amounted to 49 tons,  a decrease ot 480 tons from the pre-  '������������������ Terms of Credit.

Most of the passengers  were breathless, realizing the imminent danger of the little dog.  A collie that was on the sidewalk  grasped the situation and made a  bold dash in front of the car.

(Continued from Page 1)  in the future by the old-time Liberals.  And further, I shall try to indicate several  things that the present Conservative Government  would do well to consider and act upon to some  extent; They are in power, and are big enough,  strong enough, and wise enough to hear plain  words from plain, outspoken men, on living topics.  Lands, Coal interests, inspection of all public or  semi-public institutons, and the protecton of weak,  foolish and overly religious persons from undue  domination, tyranny and slavery, are among the  subjects which shall be made manifest before long.  From Scandia to Canada.  A man named L��������� came all the way from  Scandinavia to Canada, big with hope and strong  in faith as he looked forward to the future. And  his future came on apace. Another strong man,  full of faith and hope in his coming days, appeared in the City of Vancouver. Here he had  bright prospects and planned things as great  as his spirit and intellect.  These two men lived in the Terminal City and  their plans ran, as their lives, side by side. Each  had his views of life, and each had his circle of  friends. Each looked to Vancouver as a place in  which to live and succeed. The Scand, by many  Steps over dangerous ground, landed in a fit of  inebriety and, as a common drunk, broke the law.  The other was a guardian of that very law, and  in the line of his duty he ran across the Scand,  and went to his death. The accompanying set of  exciting and complicated acts brought about the  death of the drunken man, as well as of the policeman.  How many homes are made unhappy by this calamitous act no man can tell.  The Scand grew up from some mother's" home,  as did the Policeman Byers. Each at one time  was a bright, happy, hopeful lad and later on a  strong, ambitious young man. They went through  many changes and influences until they came into  each other's presence last week, and then into  eternity they passed without any warning or time  to make preparation.  These two men were destroyed by drink. Every  man in Vancouver is aware of this fact, if he be  possessed of ordinary knowledge and the history  of the case. Two prisoners in the Okanagan shot  a policeman last week, and he is dead, too. These  men will tell the world that drink was the real  cause. The two murderers in all probability will  hang for their guilt, and rightly, too. But the  real hangman is not the rope, nor the sheriff, nor  the man who performs the act on the day of execution. The real hangman is whiskey cursed  drink. It is rum, put up for the public and  made legal by our own acts, extending over years.  Who is the destroyer of the Scand t Who of  Policeman Byers f l*% our officials, our lawmakers, our electors, our ministers, our people,  make answer and say truthfully: We each are  stained with our brother's Blood. '"_'_'  This is the fact whether we like it or not. And  we, who have minds, whoi are possessed of manliness and common decency must take steps quickly to end this devil's business. As bad as are the  public, so bad, and much worse are the men who  are, for money, making these drunkards.  No man of heart can sit still and see the very  best of our race cut off almost daily by this drink  traffic and. escape condemnation.  flow long must parents see this bloody tyrant,  this drunkard-making system remain in force,  upheld by our laws, and protected by our legislators?   We are all in the same box.  The Bi-Wngual Fight to Ontario.  The Roman Church, as a tool of the Jesuits, has  undertaken to make Ontario French in every respect. The Protestants are getting aroused at the  insolence of these meddling Jesuits, and are determined to stop their machinations against the  public schools and English language of Ontario.  " These priests make no secret of their plans.  They are determined to oust the "cursed public  school system of education." This they are bent  upon, because the public schools train up men  and women-to be independent of priests and spiritual guides who have certain pagan mummeries  for religious consolation instead of the simple,  loving mercy of an everlasting, loving Father.  - Here is the pith of the Jesuit coy, on educational  matters: "The Roman Catholic is to wield his  vote for the purpose of securing Catholic as-  cendancv in this country. AH legislation must be  governed by the will of God, unerringly indicated  by the Pope. Education must be controlled by the  Catholic authorities; and under education, the  opinions of the individual, And the utterances of  the press are included. Many opinions are to be  forbidden by the secular arm, under the authority  of the Church, even to. war and bloodshed.'' These  are words of .warning, copied from a Catholic paper.   ''"*..''"'���������      ������������������.������������������"-���������'  Rome,-under the Jesuits, is ready, when she can,  to deluge this or any other country with "bloodshed.^ ' ^   T      *  -These plotting; insolent, Rome-cursed Jesuits  have been chased out of.many lanjls no less than  eighty times. They have been banished from the  Rdmah Catholic Church, so far as power has been  at hand to accomplish the task.  But just as.the Trades Unions gradually went  under control of the Socialists, and these in turn  hayje, gpne under the control of Anarchists, so the  Ronian Church has - gone"; body and bones, under  the sway of the Black Pope. The Jesuits are in  control-,'and are hurrying the.machine to the pit.  Police Magistrate Shaw on the Moving Picture  Shows. '  Our4 practical and observant Police Magistrate'  does well to dr_w the attention ofrthe public and  especially the parents to the. bad results of moving  picture shows. They are valuable within certain  limits, but beyond these limits they are hurtful.  Bovs and girls who should be in their homes in the  evenings are frequently let out by thoughtless  pareuts to go to. these shows. Instead of being in  their, homes .under good influences, and in some  degree giving-attention to study they are gadding  about- the- city, and learning much that will produce rV-ery injurious effects later in life.  Children are made restless, and taught to seek  practically all their, pleasure outside of home influence. ' ���������  It is bad for their habits, morals and schooling.  In  addition,  the _ constant  attendance  at these  flickering-light shows is hard on the eyes. Sooner  or later the children, who go so frequently, must  suffer, and perhaps be forced to wear glasses as  one of the dire results.  But the moral effect is not good. There is too  much revolver play, too much shooting and immoral representations of betrayal of marital trust  and domestic purity. There is a rudeness; a  coarseness, a murderous savagery that in the  end presses down to lower levels those who are  young and who are permitted to indulge in these  shows as often as their whims may make demand.  Parents are very thoughtless to permit their children so much shallow and hurtful pleasure at a  time when the most wholesome influences should  be at work for their future. One of the worst  features in this matter is the bad habit of running  around the streets to very late hours. Children  but do not tell them the other places they visit  tell their parents that tehy were at the shows;  and the company they get into betimes.  FATHER DONNELLY THE REVIVALIST.  The eloquent priest has come to Vancouver  with his message. From all accounts he is a shining light, and truly devoted to the cause of his  Church. Moreover he has given most excellent  advice, such as would be good for the Protestants  as well as for the Romanists.  He spoke fromthe standpoint of Holy Mother  Church on the Ne Temere Decree, and showed  clearly that in connection with the church Sacrament there can be only one marriage. The State  may or may not perform an act of civil or legal  marriage, but it has no power to perform a true  marriage as intended by the church. Hence, if  any pair jbe married otherwise than by a priest  of the Roman Catholic Church, that pair is not  truly married. This is the logical and inevitable  conclusion. Hence from the measurement of the  evangelist lather, all Protestants are living in  adulter^, lind their children are illegitimate.  The good father had a hit at me while doing  his church work. He seemed to be bothered by  the letters that the newspapers put before or after  my name. They are very easily understood. All  university men know their signification, and have  knowledge of the long years of labor preceding  their legal and official possession.  Now, I would like to ask the holy father why  he is dubbed "fathert" Is it because he is not  married and is not a father, or because he is a  father outside of wedlock? Children born outside  wedlock-arc illegitimate. Absolutely reliable history of South America informs us that large numbers of children are born to the priests. This has  been too common by the Roman Catholic priests  of many lands. But they are fathers in this sense  in spite of; the commands of the church.  80U**I8* ANP HW NJSW CATHOLIC  PABfY.  ������ ��������� ���������      i  This is a joke. There is no new party under  consideration: All Canada knows that from.the  first Bourasaa; bas had no other party. His master  is not a Canadian, and never was. His meter is  not a Briton, and never was. His master is not a  freeman and never was. He is a foreigner, and  an abject serf at that. He belongs, body and  soul, to the Jesuitic machine, and is under strict  marching orders. However, let Bourassa and his  master enter upon an open and aggressive policy  of establishing a Catholic Party outside of the  Liberals and Conservatives. He will begin the  work which will drive the Jesuits out of Canada  where they have become so strong. Are they so  blind as to not see the "handwriting on the  wall?"   Let them beware in time.  "TH1H3E 0RANPE8T WORJW IN THE  ENGLISH LANGUAGE."  The three grandest works in the English language, or any other, are the  Holy Bible (divine),  Shakespeare (genius), and  Webster's dictionary (educational).  Together these books form a library of inexhaustible mines of wisdom, enchantment and  culture.  The Holy Bible and Shakespeare are finished  products; old, yet ever new, with no one to question their supremacy and immortality. To add to  or take from these mighty volumes would be sacrilege ; an impairment of their inherent grandeur,  beautiy and power.  Webster's dictionary differs from these other  books because, albeit resting on a basis of solid  scholarship, it is nevertheless an expanding and  evolutionary work, keeping step with the music  of progress and gathering into its insatiable maw  all the additions to the English language.���������Troy  Press.

THE WESTERN CALL.  AID TO THOROUGH-  U BRED   STALLIONS.  The policy initiated in 1911 by the  Department of Agriculture with reference to the granting of aid, under certain conditions, to the.owners of thoroughbred stallions is generally meeting with approval and is accomplishing, in part at least, the objects sought  when the policy was undertaken.  Amongst other things, owing to the  rigid conditions imposed, it is encouraging those maintaining really high  class horses aud is serving to organize  the system of breeding followed In the  different communities where thoroughbred stallions are located. The stiin  ulus given, in this manner, to the use  of thoroughbred blood will, it Is be  iieved, lead to an Improvement In the  light horse stock of the country. Thoroughbred stallions, if really good individuals, may be expected to exert  such an influence in the development  of Canadian horses for saddle and harness use, aa ia greatly needed and  greatly to be desired. The premium  placed upon quality, soundness and  prepotency, through the grants awarded by the department ia serving to  check the use of unsuitable aires -and  ia tending to, conserve a type of thoroughbred, the utility of which is beyond question.  While, as perhaps should be stated,  it ia not the Intention of the department to encourage the breeding of  thoroughbred horses or to develop a  type In l^flt horses approximating:  closely to that of the thoroughbred,  there is no question but that a strong  Infusion of thoroughbred blood in the  light legged. mareB of the country wilt  be of inestimable value in Improving;  the quality of the stock got from them  by stallions of the various light harness breeds.  '. Believing himself to be justified,  therefore, in further prosecuting the  fjolicy begun last year, the Honourable  Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture, baa authorized the continuance  of the grant, to be available for all  thoroughbred stallions, standing for  public service during, the season ot  1W2, which comply with the conditions  Imposed by tne department.  The conditions under which assistance WW be given are aa follows;  1. All horses on account of which  aid ia given by the department must  be registered in tbe Thoroughbred  Stud Book of the Canadian National  Live Stock Records.  2. Horses aball be of good siie,  quality and conformation and shall be  free from all hereditary unsoundness;  these conditions to be ensured by submission annually to a thorough, careful examination either at the hands of  the Veterinary Director General or  such other members of the veterinary  staff of tbe department, or other per  sons as the Minister may from time to  time appoint for this purpose.  3. Horses so approved shall be duly  and properly advertised to stand for  service of mares, under the ordinary  and general conditions usual in the  districts in which they are to be kept,  at an annual service fee (except in the  case of thoroughbred mares) of not  more than $10.00 to insure, such service fee to become due and payable  only when mares prove to be in foal.  Any person, firm or corporation owning or controlling any thoroughbred  stallion In regard to which all of the  conditions above set forth shall have  been duly and properly fulfilled, shall,  on production of satisfactory evidence  thereof and ot the fact that a reasonable number of mares, other than  Thoroughbred     mares,    have    been  served during the season, be entitled  to receive at the close of each such  season the sum of $250 from the funds  of the live stock branch. If, in the  event of a horse dying or becoming incapacitated for service during the season, an.approved substitute is immediately placed in the same district, the  Minister may, after due consideration  of the circumstances, authorise - the  payment of the subsidy amove mentioned.  The necessary forms will be furnished on application to the Veterinary  Director Oeneral and Live Stock Com-  raJssioner;Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa.'-;  i  GRANDVIEW RESIDENTS  TAKE NOTICE  That RICHMOND'S BAZAAR Offers Extraordinary Values This Week in the Following Goods:  AFTER  DEATH, WHAT?  Does death change moral character?  If so, we know little as to the nature of the future Btate.  If death may make bad men good,  or good men bad, then the worst man  here .may prove good enough tor a  happy heaven, and the beBt man here  may prove bad enough for the lowest  hell.  But if death produces no moral  change, then after death we shall be  in character what we: are before  death. ;  Still that life-history will, for the  most of us, contain records of sin,  neglect, failures, occurring before our  hearts, were renewed and possibly  after, and the consequences of those  misdeeds' will  be clearly perceived.  AH such facts will return to us in  vivid remembrance.  Even the gates of pearl cannot shut  out the. memory of facts. Can the soul  in heaven find joy in such memories?  There will be songs of Joy; but they  will; not. be ditties of merriment or  burets of unthinking exultation.  Those! songs will thrill with gratitude, aad glow with love, and swell  with adoration; but they will be softened with pathos and will vibrate  through tears of penitence.  Yes, efven in heaven there will be  tears; for God will there find occasion  to''wipe away tears."  'It the ^remembrance of our entire  earthly Watery shall go with us and  stay with us in tbe heavenly world,  the,bliss of that state will not be a  mare surface foam. Depths, of mystery and awe and solemnity and reverence are in it.  These memories may recall many  incidents^of.. hjpd * deeds and useful  labors, IOrW^'ff*^������ excite gratifying  emotions, but all these must be clouded by the remembrance that we loved  our own sinful gratlftcatlons more  than we-did Him who loved us and  gave Himself for us.  What will it be. to carry forever in  our own vivid recollection such a  history? Surely this probation contains germs bf everlasting fruitage.  Heaven is not a play ground. Jt is  rich in remembrances of penitential  sorrow, blending with and softening  and beautifying the deepest gratitude,  the most devout adoration, the purest  love.

Armstrong, Prop.  A Boston school teacher '������������������ had been  explaining to her class J about the  three kingdoms of nature���������the animal, the- mineral and the vegetable.  When she had finished she said to the  class:  'Now, who can  tell  me  what',the  highest degree of animal life is?" :  At this a little girl ia the rear row  of seats raised her hand, and replied:  "The highest degree of animal life  is the giraffe."

Lillian���������Dick was our canary, but  the cat extincted him.���������Young Folks.  J. H. P.  Nearly four thousand years ago Joseph wore a "coat of many colors."  Three thousand years ago Solomon  said, "Let my garments be always  white. Two hundred years ago the  English dandy's, dress consisted of a  "black velvet coat, a green and silver  waistcoat, yellow velvet breeches, and  blue stockings." In our day tbe coat  Is of any modified color that, taste selects. But no matter what tbe color,  or the cut, the coat always remains.  The ancient coat was a tunic, worn  next to the skip. The modern outer  coat has been tne same for two thousand years. The dress coat first became a fancy during the French Revo-  Initon. The vest was orlgnally called  a waist coat. Breeches probably had  their origin in the "coats of skin'  made in Eden six thousand years ago.  "Pants," the homely contraction of  pantaloons, is an American word, and  corresponds with "gents" for gentlemen. The two short cuts go well together���������only "gents" wear "pants."  Trousers first came into general wear  in England, displacing breeches, leggings and gaiters.  Hats came into use five hundred  years ago. Sometimes they wore them  "sharpe on tbe crown, pearking up  like the spire of a steeple, standing a  quarter of a yard above tbe crowne  of their heads; some have round  crownes with bands to please their  fantasies, never contente with one color two dales to an ende," In 1599 tbe  gold cable bat was all the rage.  Felt hats came about ib this way:  Bishop St. Clement of Rome, during a  long journey, blistered his feet. To relieve the pain he placed wool between  his feet and sandals. The heat, moisture, motion and Weight formed a mass  which suggested the manufacture of  felt for hats. Beaver hats are first  mentioned in 1580, as "bever hattes."  The cap is an emblem of liberty, and  was given to the Roman slaves in the  ceremony of emancipating' them.  The shoe is an .evolution.'' In the  age of stone the foot protection was a  piece of bark laid. under the sole  and tied Oil.' Out Of this grew the sandal, which bands reaching above the  ankles. From this developed the shoe  proper, perhaps two thousand, years  ago in Egypt,' Persia and Greece. Four  centuries ago, the English gentry took  a fancy for long-toed shoes, and car  ried the fad to such- an extreme that  the king issued an edict that "no one  under the. rank of a lord should wear  shoes more than ten inches' long."  Some of the shoe points had been so.  extended that men could not. walk unity tbey were fastened to the. linees.  with chains. The long points had been  preceded with square toes, six inches  wide. Shop, buckles superceded ribbons as fastened about 1690, and were  strongly dtsijounteuanced as "forbidden in Scfrptufe."  The boot is-mentioned by Homer 907  B. C. It was first made of leather,  but protected by a strip of brass or  iron as a shield against sword cuts.  The stocking was originally called  hose. Henry VII. of France wore the  first pair of silk h'ose ever made. Knit  stockings were taken from Italy to  England in 1564. Wove stockings  were of English device, in 1599.  Shirts were generally worn in western Europe early in the eighth century. Linen shirts followed wool in  the thirteenth century. Kings sometimes had their shirts embroidered  with gold lace.  Gloves are ancient. In the middle  ages  they  were  richly  made,  being  covered with white velvet. Gloves were  rare among Anglo-Saxons until the  eleventh century.  A  CLEVER   ELEPHAfTt.  A gentleman who lived ln India for  many years tells an interesting story  of the cleverness of an elephant which  he owned. ������������������ . ���������'.���������-������������������.'  Tbisgentleman had two small sons  to which the elephane took a great  fancy* So devoted was this elephant  that the father felt perfectly safe in  leaving his little fjoys ������n Its care.  One day the elephant and the two  *������^Aw:ent ������* on * twnp together.  They remained away so long, however,  that the father became anxious and  finally went to look after tbem. After  ^JSjttffl1!.$������ so,ne time, he came to  *H $ver\ bank, -and there a funny  sight met his eyes.  The, great elephant was standing  knee deep in the mud. with a happy  small boy squatting on either side of  him, and all three were fishing just as  hard as they could. The boys held  their rods in their hands, and their  companion held his with is trunk. Bye  and bye the elephant's line gave a flop  aud the boys crowded up to see whether it really meant that he had caught  a fish. He had, and while the big  brute, watched them solemnly, they  pulled out the line, detached tbe fish,  and then, putting on another worm,  gravely handed the rod back to its  owner.���������Herald and Presbyter.  SOME  COMMON   ERRORS.  The fourteen mistakes of life, as  Judge Rentoul recently told the Bar-  tholomenw club of London, are:  To expect to set up our own standard of right and wrong and expect  everybody to conform to it.  To try to measure the enjoyment  of others by our own.  To expect uniformity of opinion in  this world.  To look for Judgment and experience in youth.  To endeavor to mold the dispositions, of everybody alike.  Not to yield In unimportant trifles.  To look for perfections In our own  actions.  To worry ourselves and others about  what cannot be remedied.  ���������  Not to alleviate If we e;:n all  that  needs alleviation.  Mot to make allowances for the  weaknesses of- others.  To consider- anything impossible  simply because we ourselves happen  to be unable to perform 1t.  To. believe-   only   what   our   finite  minds-can grasp.'    ������������������������������������������������������  -To live as if the moment; the time,  the   day -were   so   important   that   it  would live forever.  To estimate people by some outside  quality, for it is that within which  makes the man.���������The Interior.  ****************************************************  Merchants Photo Co.

The dog,  feeling himself in disgrace, in order to  propitiate his master, went to every  tiedroom in the house, and collected  all the slippers and old shoes he could  find, which he deposited outside the  drawing room door.

Adam  was as expert a walker as we are.  Cattle were probably the first animals broken to the yoke and to carry  riders. Horses were not common  among the Hebrews until Solomon's  time. Judges and princes rode on  asses.  Cattle were unknown in America at  the time of its discovery by Columbus. The Spanish settlers brought  them in 1493.  The ox was the draught animal in  Homer's time, the horse being em-  I ployed only in war. 1 he Assyrians  'ami Egyptians both rode and drove  i horses at a very early date. The  | Greeks first heard of the horse from  ; seeing the Scythians on horseback,  \ and they supposed the horse and rider  were one. hence the idea of centaurs.  j The Chinese sometimes harness  hogs, and make them draw "wagons.  ;The American aborigines could not  {have done that, as no hogs were  ! known on this continent until the  [colonists brought them.  The  word  "pony"  is  modern, and  [did  not appear in  dictionaries until  ' 1736, when it was defined as "a little  I! Scotch horse."  f j Just when the mechanism of a'Wheel  ������ i was discovered cannot be determined,  but it was long before . Pharpah's  time; and the people soon learned to  cover their wheeled vehicles as protection from sun and storm, and to  screen women from public gaze.'  The wagon and chariot came into  view at about the same period, the]  chief difference being the number, of  animals hitched up to them.  The first wagon wheels were nothing but circular blocks of wood, from  two feet to.five feet in diameter, rolling on rude wooden axles connected  together by two or three planks. The  first specimens had only two wheels.  Four wheeled wagons, or carriages,  have been known scarcely more than  2000 years. The beat of them at first  had no springs, but they were, fitted  out with cushioned seats, canopy tops,  and were drawn by four or six horses.  Coaches were first made for royalty.  The emperor of Germany, in 1475, rode  in a coach, to his cornation at Frankfort The earliest coaches were called  "whirlacotes." (  In 1550 there were only three  coaches in all the city of Parish in  1658 there were only 310; but in 1758  there .were more than 14,000.  Coaches were introduced into 'England in 1580, and twenty-one* #*%V*  later men were legally restricted*from  riding in them as being effeminate'.  :n 1619 English coaches were drawn  by six horses. Coaches with glass  doors were not introduced until; the  middle of the seventeenth century.  At the time of the Revolution only  very wealthy families in the United  States owned carriages, and these  were heavy, clumBy things.  The word "cab" 1b short for cabriolets, which were introduced in English royal circles in 1823, and were  much ridiculed.  "In days of yore when folks got  tired  A hackney coach or a chariot was  hired;  But now along the streets they  roll ye  In a shay, with a kiver, called  cabriolay."  The sleigh is old and popular, whether drawn by horses, reindeer or  dogs. Sleigh-bells are old, too.

This year he made $800  from strawberries and raspberries  grown on an acre where he has 600  chickens by the closed coop method.  A dairyman who has studied the  question of profitable rations says the  greatest success he has ever had in  his dairy was when he Yed a ration  about as follows: Once a day good alfalfa, all to be eaten up clean, and this  in the morning, ln the afternoon, cut  corn fodder, with the ears left in, all  that will be eaten up clean. This latter would be cut green, just before  the first frost, shocked in medium-  sized shocks in the field and left there  till wanted. It would then be hauled  to a cutting machine and cut as needed in about three-quarter inch lengths,  and when fed properly every bit of  stalk, cob and all would be eaten.  Then with this was fed about twentq  or thirty pounds of mangel-wurzels,  put through a root cutter, and to the  heaviest milkers from four tp eight  pounds of wheat bran.  Make your whitewash as follows,  and you will find that it rubs off very  little, if at all: Powder and sift quicklime without slacking; stir a quart of  It well into a gallon, of sweet milk.  It ought to be a little thicker than  cream. If too thick, add more milk; If  too thin, more lime. After mixing  thoroughly, add a teacupful of turpentine, stirring hard as it goes in. Apply  with a paint brush.���������Home and Farm.  While apples may be grown profitably on a wide range of soils, the ideal  is a rich, deep, sandy or gravelly loan  with clay subsoil. This makes a favorable home for the tree roots, and it  can be worked early In the spring and  soon after rain without fear of puddling or baking, it also responds  readily to the use of fertilizers and  cover crops, and produces fruit of  highest color and early in ripening.  The clay loams and even heavy clays  will produce fine apples if propertly  handled and thoroughly drained.  HOW IN8ECT8 MAKE MUSIC.  The katydid has a wing that is very  curious to look at You have seen this  little green Insect, I have no doubt \  Its color is light green, and just where  the wing Joins the body there is a  thick ridge and another wing. On  this ridge there is a thin but strong  skin, which makes a sort of drumhead.  It is the rubbing of these two ridges  of drumheads together which makes  the noise you have heard. There 1b  no music in it, certainly. The insects  could keep quiet, If tbey wished, but  they must enjoy making the noise.  Tbe katydid sometimes makes two  rubs on its drumhead and sometimes  three. You can fancy she says "Katy  did," "She did," or "She didn't." The  moment it is very dark they begin.  Soon the whole company is at work.  As they rest after each rubbing, it  seems as if they answered each other.  Did you know that bees hum from  under their wings? It is not the  stir of those beautiful light wings  we hear. It is the air drawing in and  out of tbe air tubes in the bee's quick  flight.  CHIC STYlfcS.

The white dog dreams in his sleep."  he said, "but his eyes are shut," and at  once the figure returned and took its  place in tbe muttering circle. Good  hunter aa Khelowna was, he made a  mistake. His forest training should  have taught him that the hunted feign  often. If h������ had remembered that. Jim  Combe might not have recognised In  the fifth figure Davies' murderer, an  v Indian who had been wanted by the  police for lite last three years. As it  was, Jim Combe knew what kind of a  ������ang was travelling the Risky run that  fall, and the hand which was beneath  the blankets closed quietly round tbe  lock of his Winchester.  But h* did not stir la his place, fie  wanted that man's life as every cowboy In the district did, who bad ever  heard of poor old "Lofty" Hart, shot  through his cabin window as be read  his home letters by lamplight, but he  waa not pre pared to Tisk the safety of  the women for th* chance of taking a  murderer. ,-  r 80 he lay still and watched, bis  whole body crying out for sleep and  his half closed lids heavy aa lead.

The dumb beast Is n*t aWawed to  I' complain in an Indian cwm. audi ������s  this ona would not cease howling, th*  bigger brute cinbbed it over the bean  with a treat tent peg; clubbed It until  it lay very still.  Thst Is the Indian method of mak'ug  s sleigh dog obedient snd one reason  perhaps why no Indian dbg ever shows  ���������any sign of affection for Its mister.  When the beast lay still the Indian  pasted, a rope round its neck and tied  It up to a tree. Tbe dog was not dead  yet, and" as it might possibly be made  to work sgain, be did not want to loss  It. but It was too nearly dead to nlte,  so be took one of its hind legs and  moved tt sideways. Tbe leg moved  easily from the thigh iu a ghastly  unnatural fashion, and the Indian  laughed.  "L������g broke." he said. His shot wltb  tbe pine billet bad been a good one.  Under tbat grey blanket by the white  man's fire a lover of dogs felt bis r>sh  creep and bis bands clench, but Jim  Combe, having been trained ln a hard  school, had learned when to interfere  and when to bide bis time. He could  not kelp the poor beast now, and his  first duty was to look after bis bors's  wife and that dear curly little head  under the bide robe. After this the  grey dawn began to come, a sad weird  light, sifting through the pine trees,  whilst tbe fires died down, and the  tiny chick-a-dees began to call among  the boughs, warning their woodmates  that those silent footed things who use  the "fire stick" were moving again in  their lairs, and would soon be creeping  up towards the high places whither the  full-fed stags were .already sauntering  for a day's siesta after a long night's  feed.  With the first hint of light, a busy  stir began in the Indians' camp, even  before that the women must have been  moving in their lean-to, for Bmma,  bent and old, began to put out strangely compounded packs, blankets rolled  and corded, and bloody parcels of  meat.  Then the lean-tos came down, and  they too were dissolved into packs,  and before the dawn had come, the Indian camp was completely dismantled,  the pack-horses loaded with hides and  meat, and everything ready for a start.  The Indians were apparently not going to stay to cook breakfast.  It had been a successful hunt even  for the Chilcotens, and every living  thing ln camp, except the braves, carried packs. Of course the braves  would neither pack anything nor allow  their saddle horses to ba packed bo  long as there was a tottering old woman, a child, or a dog in camp, which  could possibly be made to. stagger under another pound.  When the procession had wound  away into the woods, the toothless old  {Princess leading, bending under a  mountain of rugs, followed by bundles  under which tiny bare legs tottered.  and dogs upon whose b-cks clattered  pots and pails, by t he fire there still  lay one bale of cedar matting.  The young buck who had thrown the  pine billet came round, kicking the  charred sticks and peering amongst  the young pines stripped of their feathery frondage, and growing giants,  brutally gashed and wounded so that  their life blood would ooze slowly away  from them, leaving them dry and fit for  the camp fire, but though he turned  over the brush bedding and looked at  every extemporized peg on which anything could have been left hanging he  found nothing.  The camp was empty, nothing had  been left behind. Then his eye fell  upon the bundle of cedar matting. It  weighed nothing, so that he might  have tied it on behind his saddle; it  was ~ortij. nothing, so that be mi  V.maiess burden fell  wpen bis victim of the night before,  crouching where it had been tied, its  head stretched out along the ground,  not dead, but cowering to escape notice.  That was jrwt what the Indian was  looking for. Belting the dog's rope,  he untied it from the tree and dragged  the unhappy beast towards the pack.  At the first. Jerk the dog howled with  anguish, and Mrs. Rolt, whose ears  were always open to a beast's cry of  pain, turned sharply on her heel. The  howl was of course rewarded wltb a  curse and a kick, and then, screaming  at every inovoment, the poor brute was  Jerked along the- groundy its broken;  nones grinding together as it went, r  , In its agony Hurled to bite its tormentor, and in a moment a club was in  his band again.  "Oh, my (iod. won't someon? stop  the brute," cried Kitty, almost ln tears,  but the elder woman, white with rage,  said nothing. With her riding crop in  her hand, and her fine nostrils wida  and twitching, she was almost within  striking distance of the Cbllcoten,  when a strong hand caught her and  swung her unceremoniously out ot the  "You swine," she heard, as she. was  pushed on one side, and though it was  not pretty English for Anstruther, her  heart went out to the noy for it, as bis  fist crashed into the big Indian's fac^.  dropping him like a pole-axed ox.  Klsheenaw,   for  It was the chief's  son, struggled to his feet  "Want more  do you" drawled ths English voice,  now quiet and steady, and again the  fellow Went down    and    Anstruther  stood ovar him ready to repeat the dose  as often as the man should require it.  But a woman's voice cried to him.  ���������The rifle. Prank; the rifle," and he  was only Just ln time to put his foot  upon it before the figure at his feet  had got possession ot it  7 At that moment a man who  had  come running back from tending bis  horses stepped, white lipped and stern,  in front of Kitty Clifford, so that she  saw neither KJaeeshaw nor th* other  Indians who bad returned at the sound  ot the fighting, but she heard a rifle  Shot ring out, and If she could have  seen from where she stood, she might  have seen Jim square his shoulders  and put his head back, like a man who  prepares to take a shock.  But neither  Anstruther nor Jim fell.   Khelowna,  though he bad fired point blank into  tbe group, had not dared a* much as  that yet.   It was only the wretched  dogwbtcbrwltbastrange instinct, bad  crawled for preservation to Mrs. Rolt,  tbat turned over under her very feet,  and stretched itself in death.    The  blood of It splashed her skirt.  Then Jim Jumped forward.  "Prop them guns, you dogs," he  roared. "Anstruther, cover those men  and stand still. If they stir, shoot.  Now. Khelowna, drop tbat gun, or���������"  and his rifle said the rest.  The cowboy's tense face: was working with rage, but the Indians who were  fortunately in a group and unsheltered  by timber, saw tbat bis Winchester  waB as steady as a rock, and they knew  a white man's voice when it meant  business.  They know too Jim Combs's reputation as a rifle shot, and when Khelowna dropped his empty rifle the rest  of the band followed his example.  It takes a very brave man to shoot  when another and a quicker man ba������  the drop on him, and except behind  cover Indians are not very brave men.  neither are they good shots, and this  they knew.  "Let him up, Anstruther," ordered  Jim, with his eye still on the group,  "and now, you dogs, git to hell out of  that! No! leave them rifles there.  I want those in my business. If you  put a hand to them I'll shoot you,  sure."  Sullenly, but without a word of protest, the four braves slunk away, leaving behind them at one white man's  command, what they prized moBt in  the world.  When they had gone Jim turned to  Mrs. Rolt.  "That's a bad business, a bitter bad  business, I'm afraid. I lost my head  a bit, bo you mustn't mind if I did  swear, Mrs. Rolt. We've got to git  now, and only hit the high places between this and the ranch. Put Miss  Kitty up, Anstruther."  But Anstruther was busy collecting  the rifles.  "No! never mind them. I'll fix  them,"- said Combe, and taking them  one by one, he smashed the stocks off  them against the nearest pine tree.  "Won't dp much shooting for a while  with them things," he commented, surveying his work of destruction. "But.  Gee Wbiz! it's a bad business. Let  'em go," and be put his foot in the stirrup and swung himself into the saddle  whilst his horse galloped.  For six: long miles he gave them no  rest until Kitty was beginning to feel  weak in her saddle, though Mrs. Rolt  rode as if she would never tire, and  then be pulled his horse into a walk.  "Take a,bit of a spell now," he said,  "and don't try to talk. We are all safe  as long as it is light, and I don't suppose" that they'll try tp follow us any  way, but we've got to make the ranch  before dark, and that will keep ua  busy."  How do women telegraph to one another? Have tbey some Bubtler sense  which we male things have missed, or  is it\hat, through much practise, they  can really speak with their eyes?  This deponent knoweth not, but this  he knows, that when the four horses  were steadied to a walk, the natural  tendency of them was to come together, but at 8 glance from the girl,  Anstruther found himself in some un  explained manner, attached -flfitt?  against his will to Mrs. Rolt, and riding ahead, whilst Kitty aud Combe  followed them.  When Mrs. Rolt had taken Anstruther far enough ahead, Kitty Clifford's  colt sidled up to Jim's cayuse, and putting, her hand timidly on the man's  arm, the girl said:  "Jim."  "Yes, Miss Clifford."  "Why not Kitty; as it used to be?"  He flushed to the roots of his yellow  hair.  "Kitty then."  "Why did you fret in front cf mc  when that Indian shot the dog?"  "Did I. Miss Kitty? I beg your pardon.   Did you want to see him do it?"  "Don't be stupid. Why did you do  It?"  "Didn't know as I did do it."  "Didn't you, Jim? I think you did.  old friend, font I wasn't worth It, Jim.  I wasn't worth it"  What he answered or what more  they said, the prairie breezes may  know.

Boys readily learn a class of low,  vulgar words and expressions which  are never heard in respectable circles.  Of course, we cannot imagine a decent  girl using words she would not utter  before her father, or teacher, or most  esteemed friend.  Such vulgarity is thought by some  boys to be "smart," the next thing to  "swearing," and yet "not so wicked."  But it is a habit that leads to profan-  and fills the mind with evil  thoughts. It vulgarizes and degrades  the soul, and prepares the way for  many of , the  gross  and  fearful  sins  THE  TRAGEDY   OF   THE   QUICKSANDS.  Miss Prior being draped in pink sir   "hie hnow ocrrupt society.  Every young person should read  Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables,"  which is one of the finest productions  in literature. One of the features of  the book not soon forgotten is the  description of the man in the quicksands.  There is 8 mystery about the nature  and cause of quicksands. Some say  they are due to a soft, underlying layer of clay or mud; others have said  that they are caused by gas imprisoned between the different grains of  sand, due to the decomposition of organic matter.  Whatever the cause, great have  been the tragedies of the quicksands.  Prominent among those which have  claimed many victims are the famous  Goodwin Sands. It is said that ribs of  ships long lost reappear from time to  time on this treacherous shore.  Unfortunately for humanity there  are more moral quicksands far more  dangerous and subtle than the Goodwin Sands. They are also exceedingly plentiful and exist in places which  outwardly appear quite safe. We can  see examples of Victor Hugo's picture  every day. Evil habits, such as drunkenness, lust and selfishness, involve  their victims in conditions which undermine character as certainly as the  insidous, cruel sands envelop human  life.���������Onward.
