'  The Hon. the Minister of Education Dr. Young,  aid a flying visit to North Vancouver on Monday  open the handsome new Ridgway School, and in  ourse of his remarks complimented the architect,  r. C. F. Gillam, of Vancouver, upon the modern-  : his school planning, by the separation of the  xes in cloak room and entrances, and by the  cation and general layout; and went so far as'  say that the Government would in the future  ake these ideas and arangements imperative in  ty new schools they may erect in the larger mu-  palitics.   This eeonium from the Minister of  ducation was quite a feather'in Mr. Oilman's  'chitectural cap.    The builders, Smith & Sons,  d also be praised tot good,  honest work  ell performed partly under trying weather oon-  tions.   The new schools are a good advertise-  ent for architect, builders and for North Van-  uyer. t  Great is truth and it will prevail in ,the end.  ver and over again in these columns it has been  erted for many months past tbat the B; C.<  ciety of Architectg would get a' square >daal  >m the McBride Government in the Point Grey  hiyersity competition, therefore the announce-^  ent made by the Minister of Education, the Hon.  Young, "that the Government would appoint  cial assessors and enlarge'the, time, also meet,  ������ Society 4>f B. C.' Architects wishes in many  ������r small matters, is a most gratifying state of  Fairs that does much credit to the Government  the Society alike, to whom the thanks of  rchitects throughout the Empire are certainly  ie.  Of no loss importance is the announcement that  Jr. W. D. Caroe,,M.A., is to be one of the asses-  Mr. W. D. Caroe is a famous English archi-  2t, a pupil of the late J. L.

Happening along Seymour street one day this  Itveek J saw a free demonstration of Vancouver's  [newest "fire baby" in the shape of tho Webb  ferial ladder. This newest acquisition to Chief  *arlisles fire plant cost the city no less than $15,-  pOO, which all went to a St. Louis firm. Now  surely this is a great mistake all round as I hap-  Ipen to know similar and quite as efficient gear  lean be bought in Great Britain, the home of fire  lighting efficiency.       ^ .,  Anyone who haa seen the London brigade turn  out to handle a big bin. e will appreciate the point,  ������������������is also the fact that Chief Carulse's brigade ranks  [next but one to them. Here is a point for the  New Timers to get busy on, and J trust more official attention will be paid to use and employment of both men and materials of Canadian and  British origin, the appointment of an American  Engineer from Seattle to Strathcona Park, to-wit.  0 temporal 0 Mores!  ouy w-tbToomjo suppusmbnts.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN  A TOTAL ABSTAINER  _������������������_���������_���������_*__ i.  AN UNFLINCHING PROHIBITIONIST  Published in the Interests of Vancouver and the Western People  VANCOUVER, Brits? Colombia, APRIL 1?, 1912.  W. J. Gain  A young mother is dying in a little log cabin  in the back woods of Indiana. Though limited in  knowledge and this world's goods, she loved God  and was a beautiful Christian. Standing by the  humble, bed in the little cabin was a boy nine  years old. What a solemn moment this. The  angels cannot be far away. Already this mother  has offered prayers that the boy wil never forget.  What wil her last word be? What will be her  last request? I am sure that heaven is interested.  "Abe, I want you to promise me that you will  never touch strong drink." With-bitter sobs and  scalding tears the promise was made, and sealed  with a kiss on the lips that were already paling  in death. And from that day to the day when  the white soul of the great statesman flew away  to realms of life, to meet again this mother, queen  of the wilderness, that pledge was never broken.  When twelve years old, ho wrote his first essay  ���������on temperance; Its publication was requested  and it was widely read. Six years' before Mr. Lincoln was elected to the presidency, Judge Weldon,  of Washington, says he met him in Judge Dong-  las* room in a hotel in Bloo'mington, 111. Social  treating being the custom in those days, Douglas  said: "Mr. Lincoln, won't you havo something  to drink? Judge Weldon says Lincoln declined  courteously but positively, saying: "I don't  drink anything.*' A year before he waa elected  to the presidency Leonard Swett says, Lincoln  told him that he had never tasted liquor in his  life. Robert Lincoln says: ''Father never used  liquor, and preached to his boys, "Don't drink,*'  After tistening io the momentous message which  informed him that he had been nominated aa a  candidate for the presidoney of the United States,  Mr. Lincoln said: N  ' "Gentlemen, nfter traveling so far, yon must be  thirsty; yon will find a pitcher of water on Hie  library table."  A few months later writing to a friend concerning this incident he said: "Having k/pt  house sixteen years and having never held the  cup to the lips of my friends, my judgment  that I should not, in my new position change my  habits in this respect." Once Mr. Lincoln j~aa  ill atitea.- The captain of the ship brought him a  glass of champagne. But he refused to drink 4t,  saying, "No, thank yon, captain; I have seen too  many people sea sick on land from drinking tbat  stuff." John Hay, who was so intimately associated with Mr. Lincoln, declares hira to be a total  abstainer. His private secretaries, Nieolay and  Stoddard, declare him a total abstainer. Stoddard says when friends sent liquor to the White  House Lincoln sent it to the hospitals.  Lincoln belonged to.a temperance society���������The  Sous of Temperance. He also assisted in the  Washingtonian temperance movement, and delivered on Washington's birthday in 1842, one of the  most remarkable temperance .addresses extant.  When interest in this society waned, Lincoln kept  county by delivering addresses and advocating a  up the interest in total abstinence in his own  total abstinence pledge which he himself had written. Thia pledge has been signed by tho many  thousand1 of the Lincoln. Legion. "Whereas, the  use of intoxicating liquors as a beverage is pro-:  ductiye of pauperism, degradation and crimed aud  believing it is our duty to discourage that which  produces more evil than good, we therefore pledge  durselycs to abstain from the use of intoxicating  liquos as a beverage. ���������" He said, *' Let ,us make it  aa -unfashionable to withhold our names from the  temperance pledge as for husbands to wear their  wives' bonnet to church, and instances will be just  as rare in, the one case as in the other."  In September, 1863, a committee of the Sons of  Temperance visited the White House in the intcr-  .i������q)0 SnOmy .... %.nua onj ui ;t;>u*uoduu������j jo ;������o  things Mr. Lincoln said: "If I were better known  than I am, you would not need to be told that, in  the advocacy of the cause of temperance you have  a friend and sympathizer in me. When I was a  young man, before the Sons of Temperance, as an  organization had any existence, I in an humble  way, made temperance speeches, and I think I  may say that to this day I have never, by example,  belied what I then said. I think that the reasonable men of the world have long since agreed that.  inte.mpciT.iice is one of the greatest, if not the very  greatest, of all evils among mankind. That is not  a matter of dispute, I believe. That the disease  exists, and that it is a very great one, is agreed  upon by all."  Mr. Lincoln was also an unflinching prohibitionist. He spent weeks in Hinois campaigning for  constitutional prohibition. The following excerpts were the_ keynotes of liis speeches:  " The \legalizecL liquor traffic, as carried on in  the saloons and grog shops, is the great tragedy  of civilization. The saloon has proved itself to be  the greatest foe, the most blighting curse that has  ever found a home in our modern civilization, and  this is the reason'why I am a political prohibitionist.' Prohibition brings the desired result. It surpasses the saloon by law. It stamps and brands  the saloonkeeper as a criminal in the sight of God  arid man.  '' By licensing the saloon we feed with one hand  tbe fires of appetite we are. striving to quench with  the other.

As men _sow they reap sooner or later. From  this there is no escape.  The Trades Unions are now wondering as to  whether there will be a pulling down of the Oriental fences ere long. And no wonder they wonder. The Labour people for years have been:  teaching that capital is a curse, and that men of  wealth should he robbed of what they posses, so  as to bring them .back to the common level:  These labour men have come to believe that  they are the only producers of wealth, and, all  others are parasites. They have agitated and  talked against the incoming of the Hindoos, Chinese and Japanese until the various governments  have almost stopped the influx of the Asiatic.  Then the next move was a strong attempt to  prevent the European and the Britisher from eoiu-  iug into the country. Now there is a fierce onslaught on all kinds of men coming into Canada.  This is managed by the leaders, the professional  imitators, so as to make competitive labour scarce.  A most idiotic attempt!  The next step, the one taken with the utmost,  vigour, is the attempt o prevent the men in the  eountry from working. This is a pretty mess,  and no wonder the men who are the eause of these  foolish doings are afraid that the government will  let down the bars so as to bring more workers into  competition with those already on the ground, and  who are not willing to work or let others work.

One of these is that the  real 'basis of the early British language Is the Hebrew. ������  Now I venture to ask for a_ explanation of' this wonderful fact.

"I have been In villages where, half  the bouses were unroofed���������the timbers and straw sold for food. Questions as to their condition often receive pitiful answers. 'How has that  family managed to have grain in their  home at this late day?' I ask of one.  'Oh, he sold his daughter the other  day and bought some grain!' 'What  has become of that man's wife?' I ask  another. 'He sold her. They were  both starving; a man at another village has a little something, was a  widower and offered, If she would  come to him, to feed her, and give her  husband a little money present besides.' Such instances can be multiplied.  "If you were a famine sufferer you  would probably stop eating meat and  would go without' luxuries. There  would be no more sugar or butter.  You might be economical and cut  your family down to one meal a day,  but you would make that a good one.  When the grain was all gone, you  might take part in a riot or lie down  and die. The Chinese famine sufferer  does not do it in that way. He has  been through famines before and  knows how. A large family is often  divided; part goes off as refugees,  part stays at home. Those remaining  at home take stock of v/hat they have  They perhaps find enough grain to  last the five mouths that are left four  months, if they eat the usual quantity. But four months' supply -must  feed them for seven months, therefore they immediately begin to make  their food thin, that is, eat gruel instead of dry bread. Thus tens of  thousands live through the famine  i who would otherwise die. The gruel  | gets thinner and thinner and contains more and more weeds .and greens  and less and  less  grain.

Looking around at the great throng of  men, he said timidly to one of the assistant doctors, "Please, sir. I should  be very glad if one of you gentlemen  would say just a little prayer for me."  There was a profound silence. Nobody moved, so the little slum child  knelt down and said: "Dear Jesus, I'm  - great doctor who examined him had  to tell him that there was just a fight- only a poor, weak, little lad, but please.  ling chance for his life.  ���������  The seats of the operating theatre,  rising tier above tier like the gallery  of a church, were filled with long rows  of students, who had come to witness ] table and lay back while a smile light-  the greatest surgeon of his time, use ed up his face."

I am a prohibitionist  because prohibition destroys destruction'.  "We must not be satisfied until the public sentiment of this state, and the individual conscience  shall be instructed to look upon the saloonkeeper,  and the liquor seller, with all the license earth can  give him, as'simply and only a privileged malefactor���������criminal. ,  "The real issue in this controversy, the one  pressing upon every mind that gives the subject  careful consideration, is that legalizing the manufacture, sale and use of intoxicating liquors as a  beverage is wrong���������aa all history and every development of the traffic prove it to be���������a moral,  social and politicar wrong."  The liquor dealers of the nation have persistently belied our great temperance apostle and  president by inserting in their advertisements  fake quotations which tend to show his sympathy  with the saloon. To further pro\(e this we -will  quote from the apendix to volume 42, part 8 of  the Congressional Record of the first session of the  sixtieth congress, where the facts as'to Lincoln's  position on this question are given. ''It should be  stated distinctly, squarely and fairly, and repeated often, that Mr. Lincoln was a practical and  total abstinence man���������wrote for it, worked for it,  taught it by precept and example, and when from  a long and varied experience he found that the  greed and selfishness of the liquor dealer and the  saloonkeepers overleaped and disregarded all barriers, and every other restraint taught by the lessons of experience, and that nothing short of the  entire prohibition of the traffic and the saloon  would settle the question, he became an earnest,  unflinching prohibitionist.  "It has been said by those most competent to  judge that Mr. Lincoln surpassed all orators in  eloquence, all diplomats in wisdom, all statesmen  in foresight, and this makes him and his name a  power not to be resisted as a political prohibitionist."  On the morning of the fearful day of his assassination (April 14,1865) Mr. Lincoln in speaking  to Major J. B. Merwin, of St. Louis, Mo., a personal and political friend, said: "After reconstruction, tho next great question will be the overthrow of the liquor traffic."  In a speech prior to this, prophesying the overthrow of the liquor business, he said: "And what  a noble ally this to the cause of political freedom  With such an aid, its march cannot fail to be on  and on, til every ion of earth shall drink in rich  fruition the sorrow quenching drafts of perfect  liberty.

The steamship lines will be operated. The  mines will be worked. Farming operations will  coutiuue. Financial institutions will do their business. Mercantile and industrial pursuits will be  undertaken and prosecuted. .  And these things wjll be continued with or without the aid of our anarchic socialists, the J. W.  W.'s and the senseless trades union people who  imagine that they will not permit others to work,  only as they please. They are not willing for a  Briton to come to Canada. Aud the Briton w  worth a dozen of such noisy vermin. Weil, the  Briton will come. The Teuton will come. The  Scand, the Italian, the Bulgarian, the Galician,  and even tbe Yankee will continue to come in  vast crowds, in spite of the bawling of the senseless strikers, and the noisy whiners of the various  organizations who plan to stop all progress unless  they are in control. ' _      , _     . _   .  The Canadian Northern, the Grand Trunk Pacific, the Canadian Pacific, the Pntih Columbia  Electric, and the other huge and necessary enterprises will proceed with their work; and the  country go forward, even if the dead carcases of  scores of the 5. W. W.'s are to be sepultured in  the process.  Jf the "Whiteman" now here will not work,  then the public, the government, and the best interests of British Columbia will see that foreigners  be permitted to enter in numbers sufficient to  carry on the work. Let me tell the unprincipled,  drunken, debased "whiteman" who is'ready to  destroy everything and everybody in sight, that  the sober, industrious, level-heaed foreigners are  much better citizens from every standpoint than  8re those who are determined on the destruction  of life and property, to suit their passinig whims.  Until these men with diseased brains and perverted hearts are converted to sober sense and  a willingness to labour, they must put up with  the influx of others who will do work that the  vast undertakings of Canada are calling for. Let  all who are interested, know right well that with  or in spite of the wage howlers, our mighty enterprises will be forwarded. _  On behalf of the true and illmg workman, I  urge the Trades Unions to clean out from their  ranks "all who maketh a lie."  VENABLES AND COMMERCIAL STREETS.  An Unreasoning Public���������The B. C. Electric Tramway Co.  Complaints are made against the Electric Railway Company because the corner of Venables and  Commercial Streets is not in good running order.  The fault does not belong to the Tram Company.  But it lies at the door of the grumblying public.  Here is how the matter stands and has stood.  The Tram Company would have had that corner  fixed last year, but it was unable, as it was necessarily waiting for the City Council to purchase  the South West corner, so that a proper curve  could be made.  This very purchase was provided for by the  Council in answer to a strong request made by  the public. The City Council did its best and put  before the Electors* a small By-law to purchase  the ground, the money required therefor being  onlv about $4,000.00. In this way the public did  its best for the time being, the City did its best,  and handed the by-law over to the vote of the  electors. All this time the Tram Company was  waiting to make the curve and connect up with its  But lo, at the last moment the electors turned  down the little by-law, and so the City was unable to purchase the corner, and the Company  had to delay, much to its own-discomfort as well  as to the discomfort of the public itself. But let  it be understood that the grumbling public that  turned down tha small money grant is the body  that is accountable for the delay.  The delay has caused inconvenience, but neither  the City Council, nor the Engineering department,  nor the Company is to be blamed. The big, unreasoning, grumbling public alone must carry the  blame.  SAID ABOUT THE BIBLE.  Here are some tributes of great and wise men  to the Book of Books: - .  My own experience is that the Bible is dull  when I am dull.���������Horace Bushnell.  The Bible is a window in this prison-world  through which we may look into eternity.���������Timothy Dwight.  If we read the Bible aright, we read a book  which teaches us to go forth and do the work of  the Lord.���������Theodore Roosevelt.  The best evidence of the Bible's being the word  of God is to be found between its covers. It  proves itself.���������Charles Hodge.  The sacred Scriptures* teach us the best way of  living, the noblest way of suffering, and the most  comfortable way of dying.���������Flavel.  Take all of this Book upon reason that you  can and the balance on faith, and you will live  and die a better man.���������Abraham Lincoln..  Only a slight acquaintance with the Bible shows  that nothing is there revealed to us which cannot be transmuted into life.���������H. G. Weston.  The reason why we. find so many dark places  in the Bible is, for the most part, because there  are so many dark places in our hearts.���������A. Thol-  nek.  What other book besides the Bible could be  heard in public essemblies from year to year,  with an attention that never tires, and an interest that never cloys t���������Robert Hall.  The English Bible-ra book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would  alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power.���������T. B. Macaulay.  If there be anything in my style or thought to  be commended, the credit is due to my kind parents in instilling into my mind an early love of  the Scriptures.���������Daniel Webster.  People often say they cannot speak or say much  in meeting. No wonder they have nothing to say  who daily read twenty columns of newspaper to  one Iquare inch of Bible.���������H. L. Hastings.  Whatever I have done in my life has simply  been due to the fact that when I was a child my  mother daily, read with me a part of the Bible,  and daily maed me learn a part of it by heart.���������  Buskin. ,. ���������  The Bible is God's chart for you- to steer by,  to keep you from the bottom of the sea, and to  show you where the harbor is, and how to reach  it without running on rocks or bars.���������H. W. Bee-  cber.    :[  J am heartily glad to witness your veneration for  a B^k which, to say nothing of its holiness or  authority, contains more specimens of genius and  taste than any other volume in existence.���������W. S.  Lnndor.  Do you know a >ook that you are willing to  put under your head for a pillow when you lie  dying? Very well; that is the book you want to  study while you are living. There is but one  such book in tbe world.���������Joseph Cook.  Many books in tny library are now behind  and beneath me. They were good in their way  once, and so were the clothes I wore when J was  ten years old; but I have outgrown them. Nobody ever outgrows Scripture'; the book widens  and deepens with our years.���������C. H. Spurgeon.  In the Bible there is more that finds me than I  have experienced in all other books put together;  the words of the Bible find me at greater depths  of my being; and whatever finds me brings with  it an irresistible evidence of its having proceeded from the Holy Spirit.���������S. T. Coleridge.  Young man, my advice to you is that you cultivate an acquaintance with and a firm- belief in  the Holy Scriptures, for this is your certain interest. I think Christ's system of morals and  religion, as he left them with us, the best the  world ever saw-or is likely to see.���������Benjamin  Franklin.  < ���������1..Im|i.M"1"1"M''M'������'������I"1' H 1 VI Ml m| i|. l |.������  ****  No Delivery  ***<-******4~l-****4****\  *1  No Credit  Phone: Fairmont 621  W8 glvt/Mtfce benefit ef all eipanse af  delivery  and fesele  keeping  OUR SPECIALTY  Tha boat QuaMty for tho Lo\*aat Prtoo Poaalhlo  Spoolal This Week  MEAT  Pea Lb.

Not the waste drops from thy cup overflowing,  Not a faint spark from thy hearth ever glowing,  Not a pale bud from thy June roses blowing,  Give as He gave thee, who gave thee,to live.  Pour out thy heart, like the rush of a river,  Wasting its ��������� waters forever and ever  O'er the burnt sands that reward not the giver,  Silent or songful thou nearest the sea.  Pour out thy life as the summer shower pouring,  What if no bird through the pearl rain is soaring,  What if no blossom looks upward adoring,  Look to the Life that was lavished for thee!  Thus the wild wind strews its perfumed caresses,  Evil and thankless the desert it blesses,  Bitter the wave that its soft pinion presses���������  Never it ceaseth to whisper and sing.  What if the hard heart gives thorns for thy roses,  What if on rocks thy tired body reposes,  Sweetest is music with minor-keyed closes,   .  Fairest the vines upon ruins which cling.

Give as the heart gives, whose fetters are breaking  Life, love and hope, all thy dreams and thy waking  Soon at Life's River thy soul-fever slaking,  Thou shalt know God, and the Gift that he gave!  The prayer that begins with trustfulness, and  passes on into waiting, will always end in thankfulness, triumph and praise.���������A. Maclaren..

Thursday, 28th /March, was a blue--  ribbon day for the boys..of St. Paul's  Presbyterian Church, as on that date  the much spoken of inspection of the  5th Vancouver Coy. Boys' Brigade  look place.  A large number of friends turned  out to Judge for themselves the value  of the work the Brigade was doing.  Capt Q. H. Botham, of tbe 13th Middlesex V. B., and one time Inspector  ot Cadets for the Duke of Teck, acted  as Inspecting Officer, with Capt W.  B. Fleming of the 4th Vancouver B. B.  as bie aide. After a minute Inspection  of the uniform by the Inspecting Officer, and a few introductory remarks  by the Chaplain', the boys under the  command of Lieut. Fiddes started  upon their night's work, which Included military drill, figure marching,  free gymnastic*, lantern drill, wand  drill, parallel bars, and high leap competition. The various items called  forth oud applause from the spectators, as they were done with an enthusiasm and accuracy, that would  nave been, hard to beat, ami in a  manner that reflected great credit on  the boys and their officers.  After Jhe presentation of prites  Capt Botham gave his report He  said, that he had had considerable experience of boys' movements ln other  parts of the world, but he could honestly say that he had never seen such  work as he had witnessed that night.  He had never seen so much energy  turned to such good purpose in one  night before. The drill ot the boys  was done with splendid precision and  accuracy, their equipment was clean  and smartly worn, and1 their gymnastic exercises exceedingly, well performed. He heartily congratulated the  boys and officers on the result of their  labours.  The Chaplain then called on Capt  Henderson for his report. Capt Henderson pointed out that what had been  sees tbat night was but' one side of  the Brigade work, and that every Sunday morning a Bible otass was held  at which the boys ***** the papers  with undoubted success. The Company, he said, showed sn attendance  at both drill and Bible class of 96.4%,  which he considered, moat creditable.  The Chaplain in closing said that the  Brigade had met with a good Ueal of  opposition at first, but alter what bad  been seen that night that not only  should the company be proud of Its  work, but the church should he proud  of its company, as it was undoubtedly  handling In a manner unequalled, the  greatest problem of Canada, How to  get Hold of the Boy.

Jiin  The Western Christian Advocate  has been digging down into its own  archives and hss resurrected the following temperance . pronunciamento,  Which it printed August 14, 1861, over  fifty years ago:  "It appears t hat the Hon. Edward  C. Delavan of- South Ballstown, N. Y.,  and at one time secretary of state for  New York, had taken ifeupon himself  to secure the signatures of the different presidents of the United States,  that had served during his lifetime, to;or  the following document:  " 'Being satisfied from observation  and experience, as well as from medical testimony, that ardent spirits, as  a drink, Is not only needless, but harmful; and that the entire disuBe of it  would tend to promote the health, the  virtue, and happiness of tbe community; we hereby express our conviction  that should the citizens of the United  States, and especially all young men.  discontinue entirely the use of it, they  would not only promote their own personal benefit, but the good of the country and the world.  " 'James Madison,  " 'John Quincy Adams,  " 'Andrew Jackson,  " 'Martin Van Buren,  ���������'    '"John Tyler.  " 'James K. Polk,  "'Zachary Taylor,  '"Millard Fillmore,,  "'Franklin Pierce,  "'James Buchanan,  " 'Abraham Lincoln.'  "It is a matter of great regret." saVB  the Western, "that Mr. Delavan had no  successor to secure the signatures of  our later presidents, and thus have an  unbroken chain of evidence againstthe  arch-foe of the human race."  We agree to that, especially in view  of the tact that our later presidents  have seemed so loath to refer to the  subject of temperance in any way.  Not a man among them has ever  touched the question in a public message, though every man among them  has touched upon questions far less  important.  TEMPERANCE.  If a sprig of parsley dipped in vinegar is eaten after an onion, no unpleasant odor from the breath can be  detected.  - A teaspoonful of lemon juice to a  quart of water will make rice very  white, and keep the grains separate  when boiled.  When . finely-chopped' -nuts are  needed for cakes, salads for sandwiches, run the nuts through the  mincing machine.  To prevent salad dressing, custard  cake  filling   from   curdling,   beat  quickly for five minutes or more with  a-wire egg beater.  The odor from the burning kerosene lamp or lantern is as disagreeable as It Is unbealthful. It is said  that a tablespoon of vinegar put into  the lamp after it Is filled with the oil  will prevent the smoke and odor,  and will also make the light clearer.  Some housekeepers claim that if the  wicks are boiled in strong hot vinegar before they are used most of the  disagreeable odor will be. prevented.  Creamed Apple Pie:���������The use of  cream In making apple pie is a novelty, but It gives a delicious bit of  pastry. The pie must not be baked  too fast or the cream will curdle.  Line the pie plate with crust, fill with  sliced tart apples, .sift a tablespoon  of flour over them, add sugar to taste,  pour, a cup of rich cream over and  sprinkle with a little grated nutmeg.  Bake in a moderate oven until the  apples arcj done.  To preserve orange peel, steep the  peels Id salt and water for some time  then lift them out and put them ou  in fresh water, watch them reboil,  then draw the pan to" the side of the  stove and let it simmer gently until  they are soft enough to be pierced  easily with the head of a pin. Now  boll one pound of loaf sugar.In about  half a I'int of water for five minutes,  then pour this over the peel and let it  strain off the syrup, bring it just to the  boil, then lay hr th* peel, and let it all  boll gently together till, the peel looks  clear, when you lift It out, spread It  out on a dish to cool, dusting it well  with sugar, and leave it till perfectly  dry. when it can be put away in airtight tins.   .

WHAT THE BIRD'S CQO SAID-  I held a wee bird's egg up to my ear,  To hear what It might say;  And these are. the words It whispered  to me,  As close to my ear It lay:  Frederick William Faber, D. D., was  a Roman Catholic priest, born ln Eng  land, June 28, 1815, and died in 1863.  He was a man of deep piety. Tbe  following poem describes his conversion: :  The chains that have bound me are  flung to the wind,  By the mercy of God the poor slave  is set free; ,  And   the   strong   grace   of   heaven  breathes fresh o'er my mind,  Llkei the bright winds  of  summer  V:    that gladdened the sea.  There was naught in God's world half  so dark or so vile,  As the sin and the bondage that fet-  .   tered my soul;  There was naught half so base as the  malice and guile  Of   my   own   sordid   passions, or  Satin's control.  For years I have borne about hell lu  my breast;  When I thought of my God It was  nothing but gloom;  Day brought me no   pleasure,   night  gave me no rest  There was'still the grim shadow of  '    horrible doom.  I_ seemed as   If  nothing  less   likely  could be  Than that light should break ln on  a dungeon so deep;  To create a new world were less hard  than to free  The slave from his bondage, the soul  -s-   from Its sleep.  But the word has gone forth, and said,  let there be light.  And It flashed through my soul like  a sharp-passing smart  One look from my Saviour, and all the  dark night,,  I   Like  a dream scarce  remembered  was gone from my heart  I cried out for mercy, and fell on my  knees.  And confessed, while my heart with  keen anguish was wrung;  'Twos the labor of minutes, and years  vV of disease  sfeH as-fast front my soul as the  words from my tongue.  And now, blest be God and the dear  Lord tbat died!  No deer on tbe mountain, no bird ln  the sky, ��������� .  No bright wave that leaps on the dark  '   bounding tide  Is a creature so free or so happy as  I.  BIO SALE AT  RICHMOND'S BAZAAR  Grandview  >.

Montreal, March 12.���������It Is estimated  by the Departments of Agriculture of  both Canada and the United States  that at least two thirds of the productivity of cultivated areas is lost by  the depredations of worms, bugs, maggots and similar Insects. That is to  say, when a field Is cultivated In the  ordinary way, the value of the ultimate crop is only one third of what  It might be were the incursions Of insects obliterated;  In   Canada   especially,  and   in   the  more recently populated districts most I  particularly, the scourge of these little I  enemies has caused so much discus- j  sion and comment that of late years  scientists  of   European  and   international  reputation have been devoting  much time and energy ln an endeavor  to find a remedy.    The Government  has spent money lavishly in making  experiments with various methods of  preventing Iosb. Agricultural societies,  independent farmers and orchardlsts,  private philanthropic persons, have  scoured the world for a cure for these  pests. Up to the present; although  many have been tried, not one method  of treatment has succeeded. Paris  green, samT" and kerosene, carbolic  acid,, mineral and,organic fertilizers,  bisuiphid of carbon, poisons and repel-  lants of all makes and descriptions  have been used and failed. That is to  say, although in certain instances the  nuisances seemed to abate for the  time being, they never have been absolutely exterminated by any method  generally employed.  About two years ago the attention  of a well known foreign scientist was  called to conditions existing in this  country. By personal Inspection and  investigation he found that Canada  and the United States, two naturally  excellent countries for producing large  crops, were losing millions of dollars'  a season by so called crop failures.  Blight was spoken of freely. The invasion, of certain Insect enemies to  growing crops was referred to indefinitely. He went out Into the fields and  studied the question first hand with  nature. He found, as he expected,  that insect life in the new countries  was stronger than in the older and  longer cultivated countries of Europe.  To the layman this seems surprising.  But it is easily understood when one  recals that game in a forest undisturbed by the hand of man grows to  greater strength and numbers than  in territory surrounded by elvilization.  .After studying the question at first  hand this chemist, whose name is  withheld for the present, set to work  to find the. remedy. He has found it.  The fact has been undeniably proven.  Experiments have been made in the  United States, which absolutely prove  that the day of these pests Is done.  Naturally his method Is a secret. It is  known, however, that it consists of  treating the ground before planting,  probably a month before. Not only  are the insects wholly destroyed but  the eggs may be found under a microscope wholly exploded and scarred.  By this method, too, the ground becomes beautifully fertilized, and in every instance has yielded a record crop.  When the weather becomes milder,  shortly before the time for spring  planting, experiments are to be made  before agriculturalists in Canada. The  treatment is efficacious for- the ex  termination of cut worms, potato bugs,  corn worms, red lice, linseed worms  and all kinds and natures of pests that  destroy growing vegetables, fruit, field  crops and so on.  COMMERCIAL TELEGRAPH 8TATI0N8 CONSTRUCTED BY MARCONI* WIRELESS TELEGRAPH CO. LTD,  , AND IN OPERATION  Details of the proposed arrangements between the Imperial Govern*  went and the Canadian Marconi /Company for an "All Red" wireless ays-  tern to encircle the British Empire, a  Kcheme which eventually will embrace the whole world, have been received by Mr. A. F. fteocb, secretary-  treasurer of the Canadian Marconi  Company, Limited, here. -i   ;  . The plan embraces nigh power stations at various strategic points within the Empire by which messages can  be taken and forwarded, so that the  BritiBtf Empire will eventually become independent of cables. The Importance of this plan Is very great, as  it would mean that in case of war  with any power the British authorities would be able to go ahead with  their planB whether the cables were  cut or .not, and could keep In close  communication with the fleet anywhere between London and Hongkong.  While  this  arrangement,  has   been  entered into by the government'as an  Imperial move, something similar to  the All Bed Route project, the stations will, of course, be used for general commercial purposes, and it is  anticipated that this wide extension  of the wirelesB system will result in  aA considerable cheapening of long  distance communication. It is expected that the establishment ot this  chain of main long distance Btatlons  will result in the installation of a1  number of smaller ones, which will  act as feeders, so that every colony  which has one of these stations will  he brought Into wireless, connection  with a radius of two or three thousand miles, and with other parts of  the Empire through the main sending  stations. Incidentally, it is expected  that it will mean a great reduction  in rates to some of tbe colonies, aa  some of them have now to be reached  by cables over a very roundabout  route, which means great expense.  r,,or instance, the  present cable rate  between Great Britain and British  Guiana is fl.75 per word, while by  wireless It Is expected to bring it  down to 25 cents.  But while the Bcheme has big com*  mercial possibilities, it is from an Imperial point of view tbat the governments have taken It up. It is considered that the value of .such an Inter-  Empire wireless chain can hardly be  overestimated, since by it not only  will the Imperial Government secure  cheaper and quicker communication  with the colonial governments, but tt  will obtain a more speedy and reliable communication, with the fleet. All  the vessels are equipped with 'wireless, and in this way the warships on  the Pacific will be brought within almost as close touch with the Admiralty as the fleet sailing in home water*; and as these messages are all  sent by secret code they would be of  little use to possible hoBtlle powers,  even If picked out of the air by other  wireless systems.

With Jim before her.  Kitty had been a small, angel to bis  rival, but Jim had gone at early dawn;  there were no longer and loud men's  voices about the corrals. The quiet  of the place Invited meditation, and  the more Kitty meditated the less she  lould find to justify her attitude to  Jim Combe, and the less she saw to  admire in the man she had induced to  stay behind. Indeed all her own small  sins took a bodily form, and called  themselves Frank Anstruther. As he  smoked his last cigarette before turn-  4ng hV'that gentleman had come tq, a.  decision. He waa quite sore then that  the only woman fit to succeed but  mother at Bilbury Park waa the giji  he had, been singing to, and h������ had  decided;'that he .would put his fortunes  to the test before he was a day older.  Kitty Would not say "no" to him. of  that he felt sure. She was not one of  those woman who would willingly  spend all their lives In an humdrum  Canadian ranch.  But though he suffered without pro-  tost, aa a man must, by midday Frank  found himself wondering whether after  all a world without women would be so  utterly unendurable.  As for Mrs. Rolt, she had privately  Towed'that her favorite should nave a  fair chance, and that to prevent poaching in his absence, she would haunt  tho two young people like their shadow  until Jim's return.  No self-constituted duenna ever  found her duties less exacting than did  Mrs. Rolt; no pair of reputed lovers  leas anxious to be alone than Kitty and  .Frank.   -..-.��������� ���������  Indeed, In such a pitch of misery was  that unfortunate young man reduced  before evening, that Mrs. Rolt found  herself trying to make some amends  to him: for the girl's perverse temper.  In her heart she began to hate  "young people." Without them there  had been peace at the.ranch, whereas  now It was almost as bad af being in  love again herself.  But this thought brought a smile to  her sweet face. There had never been  any rival In her case to big Dick Rolt  She scarcely thought the man existed  who could have been.      ,  The- night after JlinV departure  there was no music at the ranch,'and  the music next morning was neither of  man's making nor to hi* liking. For  days past the great red "Hereford*"  had been crowding in closer and closer  round the corrals, and for five days the  filouds had grown more and more  fnnrky overhead, whilst a bitter wind  fept whlniug uneasily amongst the  sage brush and the willows. Perhaps  the absence of the men really accounted for the gloom which seemed closing  round the ~anch, and yet.there seemed  more than-mere loneliness in the depression which took bold on those who  bad been left behind.  The last golden leaf had fallen from  the cotton woods along the creek bottoms, and now and again dry balls of  sage brush would race and bound  along upon the uplands, driven by unseen wind devils, or the trees in the  recently burnt patch of pine, timber  just beyond the corrals would for minutes break out with a.great groaning  and grinding ot limbs. But these  things only occurred by fits and starts.  The strangeness of tbem was due only  to the fact that there seemed to be no  storm to account' for them. Such  winds as there were, were purely local  and abort lived until tbe Wednesday  morning.  Then the dawn broke in weird fashion, with such devilish storm lights,  auch unearthly and terrifying shadows  ap are only seen on the sea or the  prairies, and the first act of winter began.  <u half an hour every loose thing  about the ranch bad been blown from  Ita position. A wagon which the Indians had left out was lifted right over,  and lay bottom upwards in the yard.  Fences which the biggest of the built  had respected, were laid flat bb If they  bad been but card houses.  The little creek which a week before had threatened to run dry, became a swollen torrent. Pieces of.  board and tin cans whirled along In  the Wind, battered and rattled against  the walls, whilst the old house itself  throbbed and hummed like an organ,  and from time to itme an earth-Bhaking  report announced.the downfall fo some  great Douglas pine in the slashing.  Whilst the storm, lasted there was no  sun. Tbe racing clouds bloted him out,  ao that a' vague dull light prevailed,  auch as might have 'existed when the  Spirit moved on the face of the waters.  The three in the house cowered at  the windows, and watched, the desolate scene with that feeling half of  pleasure, half of awe, which is natural  to human beings safely entrenched in  a cosy, storm-proof house when storms  rage without, until a miserable looking  Object with lowered head and streaming hide .came trembling past the windows towards the barn.  "Oh, my poor little Mawltch. Mary,  look. There is my .fawn. Those idiotic Indians must "have let it out."  "Well, she can go into the 'barn If  she wants to.-. I think she is going."  But the fawn, like other only half-  civilized things, had lost its wi!d wits,  before it had acquired the reuse of the  domestic beast, and now btood shivering in the very eye of the wind, looking for some human being to take care  of it, insteau of taking care of itself.  "Mary, I must let it in, poor, miserable beastie.   Do you mind, dear?"  "No, of course not; though I don't  suppos? that it will come in. Try if  you can tempt it, Mr. Anstruther."  With a piece of bread in his hand  to entice the fawn Anstruther went  to the main door, glad to do anything  to win a smile from his -offended lady,  but the very elements warrel against  the unfortunate  lover mat ua>. As  soon as the latch gave under bis band  tbe great door burst inwards with such  a noise that the fawn fled, whilst Anstruther himself was sent reeling before the blast, and pictures, stick  racks, and bear hides clattered and  careered along the floor.  _ Aa usual In this confounded country  he had made a mess of it. No one but  a fool, he reflected, would have, tried  to open a door on tha weather side  of the house; when it would haye been  much easier to have brought the deer  round to the lea side, but it waa too  late to think of that now. He bad to  bring that beast in. He simply dared  hot face those two women without it,  jk>, with a glance at the damage he had  done, he pluage^l recklessly into the  ttornt bareheaded, dragging the great  door to behind him. ;-v  * It required All AnstrutheVs strength  to abut the .door, and for a anoment ha  had to cling to the handle of it for support before he could make good his  footing against the wind. Like most  newly-arrived Englishmen'he was still  particular about his attire, but in less  time than it-takes to write it, the glory  Of his boiled shirt and smart collar had  gone, his' riding breeches, built wide in  the latest fashion, were clinging to him  like the skin of a fish, his long coat-  tails were performing like a giddy  wind-mill, and bis whole appearance  waa such as to justify his belief tbat  the ladles at tho window Were convulsed with laughter. As he crossed  the paddock it occurred to him thai  Mrs. Rolt was signalling to him to  come back, but he was uncertain, and  in any case he did not mean to go back  without that infernal little beast which  tempted him yard by yard across the  corrals, and towards the patch of  shrieking and groaning timber.  Surely, he thought, the, ladles were  signalling to him, but he could not understand what tbey meant They wera  calling, hut the window was closed,  which in itself would have been enough  to drown their voices, without the  deafening din all around him.'  He waa within arm's length how, and  he made a spring at the fawn's collar,  touched it, but could not secure hie  hold, so that be only frightened the  beast, which in A few bounds reached  the timber. But here It paused, as it  it waa as much afraid to go forward as  to come back. Of course; Anstruther  followed tt- As be reached the edge  of the brule a dry bough no thicker  than bis little finger, whirled out of  one of the tops and struck him across  tbe hand. The force of that blow  from so small a thing -should haw  warned him, but at that moment victory seemed within his grasp. The  fawn, frightened by something tbe  man neither saw nor understood, hesitated, until with a quick leap Anstruther sprang in and gripped the leather  collar round its neck.  It would be a curious thing, tbe man  thought, which would loosen his grip  now until the provoking pet was safely  in Its mistress's keeping, and as tin  thought formed Itself in his mind  something happened.  To him it seemed that a terrific  crash was followed by Instant and complete darkness, accompanied by a curious sensation ot numbness and a letting go of all things, all things except  that leather collar. To that he clung  Instinctively, even when everything  rose and went away from him, feeling  and thought, wind and rain, and even  the crashing of the brule, and the anger at Kitty Clifford's laughter.  CHAPTER "TO.  Jim to the Rescue ������  "Put it out of its misery; it's back  is broken."  Anstruther recognized Mrs. Rolt's  voice, and wondered in an idle dreamy  fashion whose back waa broken, and  whether If its back was broken it  would wish to be put out of Its misery.  His back was not broken nor was he  in any misery. He wondered who was,  and turning to see was struck by a  hideous shock of pain, after which It  was night again.  When he came to himself he knew  that he was dead. He knew more than  that. He was lying In his coffin; he  could smell the new boards of it, and  they were nailing down the lid, but  this strangely enough did not worry  him a bit. Death waa a silly painless  thing after all, very much like sleep.  How even their strokes were. There  were two of them at work, one on each  side of him, beat, beat, beat! The  ring of their hammers- was rhythmical; rather good dream music he  thought, but how hard they worked,  and what a lot of nailing up that coffin  required. He wished that they had  not thrown the earth in before tbey  nailed him down, the weight of it  above him was so great that he could  not -move his limbs. And then qt He  suddenly the weight waa lifted, and- he  drew A great breath, and again the  fierce pain came and took him away  Into the cool dark where there was no  trouble.  Reckless of falling limbs and risking,  with eyes open to their -danger, a fate  similar to that of the man below them,  two of the half-breed boys of the ranch  had been swinging their axes as they  had never swung them before, and as  the blades bit and the white chips  flew, two pale faced women, drenched  with rain, and wild with grief and terror of the storm, pleaded with them to  work "ffcter, faster, for God's sak;.  faster," clenching their feeble hands,  and, yearning for. ' something to do  where there was nothing they could  do.  Heavens! how long the time seemed.  Surely between them they could lift  the tree off him now, and they strained  at a trunk, one limb of which was too  heavy for their united strength- They  might as well have tried to lift the  ranch ;house. Those only who have  handled a Douglas pine know what the  weight of It is.  The Indians way was the only-way,  and there was no help but ' theirs,  though by some miracle Frank Anstruther lived still. The hand that poor  Kitty held in hers was limp and cold  as a dead man's, but he was not dead  yet. Not yet. Surely the men could  work more quickly. Ah, if only Jim  had been there.  At the very last the half-breeds  stopped and consulted. Those two  men, as if time was of no value, consulted and argued, and then one of  them went to tho house for a saw.  That was the most insufferable five  minutes of all to Kitty, and even when  the saw cut through, and the ends of  the log were free, the log did not rise  an Inch. Another cut-had to be made,  and all the agony of waiting .endured  agc'.n. Even whsn a six-foot length  had been eawu out of the pine those  two imbeciles could not lift It, a log  which Jim would have carried on his  shouldersr->;:  It was wcM Tor Anstruther that they  could not. But for the broken limb on  the, underside which had hurled itself  many feet deep, and held now like a  tap root, Anstruther' would long sine?  have learned the great secret. I  Thanks to that bough he waa held |  blizzard, could neilHer hear'nor  anything. ���������        ^ ^  "Not yet, dear. I am afraid, but they  cannot be more than another day  now," and her own heart failed ber,  wondering whether it was all well  with her own man. /  But the great hounds, chained near  the stableB, contradicted ,her. First a  low growl, and then a chorus: Glory,  Lupus, and Venom, bayed their welcome as, dim and indistinct from tht  driving Bleet, half a dor.cn bors^iren  emerged and dismounted in the corral,  and before Mrs. Rolt could reach the  door Ktttv, a'l h-r waywnr<"n������"> f*-  gotten. was clinging to Jim Combe'*  arm, and dragging him toward, the  house.  For the others she had no word, not  even the Boss, but only, with wild hair  flying in tbe storm, she clung to her  old friend, crying:  "Oh, Jim. Jim; you dear old .Ti-n;  come quickly.  I want you so badly."  And Jim fell Into his old place at  once.  It was so natural to him to serve  this spoiled child, who always came  to him in trouble, that he forgot himself and answered:  "What Is It. dear? What do yon  want Jim to do for you. Can't it  wait?"  ���������. ���������       ���������        .

Poor beast. It at any  rate would not come in again from  that storm. The tree had broken ita  back, and a merciful axe stroke had  split its graceful head from end to end.  And yet Kitty. wb������ at another time  would have weptfor a day over her  pet, had now no thought of it.  On a rude stretcher, Improvised by  the Chinaman whilst the Indians  chopped, Mrs. Rolt and tbe three men  carried Anstruthpr to the house., and  laid him in the warm, flrellt room on  the Boss's brd, and then the greatest  terror, the only one of ranch life, faced  those women.

"Frank.   Mr. Ahstruther."  Jim's face contracted as with physical pain, but he controlled himself,  and said no word until he was in the  sick man's room, where Mrs- Rolt welcomed him silently.  One glance at that strained whit->  face on the pillow banished Jim'*  devil for good. Hero was a comred  down, ard' all the woman in the big  fellow's heart came to the surface ������t  once.  It was a marvel how his long loose  limbs moved now. Even his great  Mexican spurs ceased to clank by the  sick bed. \  "What's the trouble, partner. Been  riding Job for ajiuscment?"  The sick man's eyes smiled, but the  involuntary effort to turn sent a  spasm of pain across his face.  "Lie still, old chap, and let me see  what the trouble is.

Anstruther might be dying for some  little help wbicb they could have given  him it only they knew what waa the  matter with blm. but they did not  know.-:  There was no broken hone that they  could find, no bleeding wound for  tbem to staunch, and yet whenever  consciousness returned to him, at the  first effort to move or speak he fainted,  and each faint seemed more and more  like death.  The resources of the ordinary ranch  In such cases as this are pitifully inadequate. As a rule the wife knows  a little about the treatment of ordinary accidents and the simpler ailments, and in the house there is generally some book which professes to  be a substitute for the physician. Vou  have only to turn to it in anjemergency  to discover bow little there is to jus-'  ttfy Its claims. ������  Mrs. Rolt wad such a volume from  cover to cover, only to tall back in  despair upon such simple remedies as  warmth and quiet. She could only  give nature a fair chance. Probably  .she could have done no better, and  half the doctor's success at least depends upon the patient's faith in him,  hut when you good folk at home boast  yourselves of your many colonial possessions, in which you take only an  occasional pride and a very little serious Interest, allow something not only  tor the courage of the men who hew  out fresh dominions for you all over  the world, but something too for the  martyrdoms of women, who watch  through the long nights of lone lands,  growing old between a aun's setting  and a sun's rising, whilst all that  makes life valuable for them Is fading  away under their eyes, for want of that  which to you is but a natural accesory  of your every-day life.  Through that long and wild night  those two women watched; whilst it  seemed to them that the winds clamored round the house for the prey  which had escaped them.  Towards morning, Mrs. Rolt, who  had been dozing in a chair by the fireside asked:  "Is he sleeping now, Kitty?"  "No, he is pretending to, but I can  see how his poor lips are pressed together. I don't believe he has slept  once since they carried him in," she  whispered.  "Ob, nonsense.

As the roan rose again on Ita hind  legs, Combe drove tho long, rowels  home with ail ths cruel force that there  was in him. and the panic stricken  beast rushed blindly from th* corral.  There was a fence at the far end of  It, luckily only of light poles, sat up to  keep ln young calve*.  "How did it hanhon?" be asked.  Anstruther told blm.  ^ "I see. I see," he muttered. It  a foolish thing to do to go into tn_i  brule when the trees were tumbling.  But then be would have done It himself for Kitty. That made all the difference.  ''Don't hurt any whilst you lie still,  does it? Hurts considerable when you  move." ���������"������������������.  :The sick ^an nodded.

You can come in,  ladles."  They came In followed by Dick Rolt.  "Is it, is it anything very had. Jim,"  whispered Kitty, taking both his hands  in her*.  "It ain't no undertaker's job, if that's  what you mean. Miss Kitty," laughed  ,Tim. " 'Twon't take so long to mend  as a broken heart, and they mend  easy. It's jrst three or four ribs stove  in.

Your job Is to keep him still if you  want him well again soon," and still  holding both ber hands in his, he ltd  her to the chair by bis rival's bedside  and left her there.

Yet h3  bad no time to fori the misery of it j  all. He was riding it peemed In a  great void, out of which from time t->  time huge beasts loomed uncertainly.  He knew tbc-n for the Herefords which  moved lumberingly- and unwillingly  out of his way. and alongside him.  though he could barely see It as he  raced past it. ran three and twenty  miles of the fencing of the winter pasture.  Twice he grazed it, so dark ������ad tbe  day become, and each tlrre Itc. leff a  fragment of h!s clothing behind him to  mark his course. On the second occasion he struck hard against a projecting bar, and his left leg seemed to lose  consciousness. But be sat down and  rode as steadily as ever. He could not  afford to worry about trifles, .and aa  it grew darker every minute, he realized that there were no precautlona  that he could take to minimize his  risk. He had to stop or chance everything. ,  He could not' see where he was going, perhaps the roan could, and even  if he could not, Jim was not going to  take a pull at him yet. As long as the  horse stood up and kept going, the  miles were rat en under his feet. That  was all that mattered. Time was of  thQ eusence.of Jim's contract.  His partner Fate was playing his  hand now for blm, and he refused to  Interfere In the game. As' long as it  lasted it was. excellent to fly through  the dark stinging sleet, and as to the  end he cared nothing. When the roan  first bolted, the wildness of the storm,  all the splendid energy of the crazy  beast between his knees got into Jim's  blood, and he became intoxicated with  the madness of his ride.  He cannoned into tbe flank of one of  tbe great Hereford bulls, half seen for  a moment in the gloom, so that his  "No.   I'll take the young roan.   He's  Ithe only horse that could make it."

BpiometTlst am Optician  There Comes a Time  When letters blur, wher lines run together and reading  becomes difficult, especially in the evening. This blurring is caused by the eye not being able to focus at the  normal reading distance���������fourteen inches. The vision in  the distance is as dear as ever and this fact leads many  to believe that glasses are unnecessary ; but this is just  when the first pair of glasses is needed. A continuation  without glasses causes an undue strain on the muscles of  the eye and a dull headache is the result. A person  gains nothing by going without glasses when they are  needed, in fact they gain much by having glasses fitted  when the first blur indicates failing vision.  m  BANK OF.OTTAWA  BUILDING  Office 106, First Floor Phone Seymour 532  Office Hours :  9 to 12 a.m., 1 to 5 p.m., Sat, 7 to if p.m.  "J  m  i-***4 ***4 4 ** ***********4'**  Broken Your Glasses  Bring them straight to  our repair shop.
