The Titanic ,brave that  jtre sunk beneath the wave close i>y Newfound-  Land's shore.   Long before the Carpathia docked  st week I expressed the tlipught that it would  >rove to be some error in navigation or' faulty  >okout. All sorts of wild tales were soon flying  [round the waterfront, and I was fortunate to  lave a long talk with Capt. W. Clayton, once in  (he New Zealand Royal Stenmshiip line service.  le informs me that it was always the custom of  Now, as to having Ores against Americans,  I must confess it is time some one had a-bias of a  kind against certain forms of Yankee "slickness."  St. George's Day has" come' and gone once  more, and wherever Englishmen foregathered we  saw the"good red rose in evidence. '  Attorney-General Bowser graced the Collingwood festival with his presence and delivered a  bright speech redolent of the claims of that  "Little isle set in the silver sea.  Which nature built as fortress for herself  'Gainst invasion and the hour of war;  That England that.other Oden dcmi-Paradise,  That dear' dear land  .     .     .     famed for its breed," etc.  How well the Bard of Avon touched the national chord in.those" grand lines as well as when  pointing out the English disregard of opposing  numbers as when he makes Harry the King say:  "We few, we happy few���������we band of brothers,  For he who Sheds his blood with me this day  Shall be my brother.   Be he ne'er so vile,  This day shall gentle his condition."  "Our absent.-loved ones" given at the Duf-  ferih dinner was a toast that went straight to  every Englishman's heart present, and it was a  Merrie England gathering of the very Tjest.

Good luck to its youth.  The enormous sum of one million dollars for  paving, contracts and the unwise diversitv of the  material "makes oUe furiously to think." as the  French would'say. as to whether the city is acting wisely in dumping these enormous nobs on the  market without having firm convictions'as'to the  best mode of paving and proper admixture of  materials. One firm Who claim to be experts,  says the City Engineer's specifications are all  wrong���������and he does not seem to know his own  mind either. How many of these firms are Canadians?

The fruits  of a godless, or bibleless teaching are showing today. And irresistibly as well as eternally, "By  their fruits shall ye know them" prevails.

W.'s and other hordes of lawless men and  women are the result iu part. \  But this is only one of the phases and causes of  the universal unrest and lawlessness prevailing  today. There are many other agencies at work.  One of these I shall now refer to in a few short  paragraphs.

These men. for the most part, have been and are  disbelievers in the truth, and authenticity of the  Bible. They see it as one of the products of human thought and activity. But they do not see it  as the direct revealed word of God. They are  numerous in the pulpits of Protestantism, and are  forever throwing light, sueh light as foolish words  may carry, from their wild speculatings and  imaginings out upon the heads and hearts of  humanity. I have conversed with many of those  who pose as HIGHER CRITICS, and "never yet  met one of them who believes that the Scriptures  are true and reliable.

The Question  is causing all sorts of discussion between persons who regard: them Its  the only effective means of keeping  down the rat and mouse population  and those who object to having their  slumbers disturbed by nocturnal feline bowlings. According to the latest  feline census It Is estimated that there  are a quarter of a million cats-in this  city, as compared to 25,000 dogs, and  ln view of the rapidity with which the  former are increasing in numbers it is  proposed either to license or exterminate them. The proposal to license  cats is attended with many difficulties  and objections. Aside from the difficulty of catching a quarter of a million strays and establishing their ownership one expert holds that auch a  step would be on a par with licensing  birds, white mice; or rabbits. On the  other hand an expert of contrary  view*' paints a shocking picture of a  cat-ridden city in the near future if  steps are not taken to eliminate these  animals. According to him In the  thickly settled districts the cats are  really wild animals attacking chiefly  the odoriferous garbage can. A recent investigation shows that these  animals come out only at night so that  to catch them it became necessary  to travel about the city in automobiles  in company with the forces of the  street cleaning department engaged  in collecting garbage. However, the  advocate- of the cats point out that  these animals If unmolested might  weU relieve the city of the expense of  garbage collection, while the foe* of  Tabby and Tolntny paint the horrors  of a city in which it will not be safe  to venture forth at night for tear of  the predaceoua felines.  :-    "' '  ' -'x '���������'���������'���������   V ' . ������������������,.'"  *~V ." ������������������'      ,,  Killing Coets Monty.  The manner In which humanitarian  laws may occasionally work considerable expense to tho city undreamed of by their framers was illustrated  here this week in a novel manner, in  a case Involving a cost of something  like ten dollar* to put to death one  small mom. The mouse in question  had been captured In a trap by a  resident of Westmount who had heard  vaguely that it was unlawful to put  such rodents to death in certain ways.  Lacking exact knowledge of the subject,, be wrote to a local newspaper  askini* that the Soclet-/for the Prevention ot Cruelty to Animals,be notified that he had a live mouse in/his  possession which he wanted killed,  adding "I want some one to come and  take him away. I read It is against  the law to put rats or mice to death  by feeding them to gods, etc., and I  am a law-abiding citizen. I don't  want to commit an unlawful act by  drowning the said mouse." The letter was turned oyer to the Society  and an agent assigned to take care  ot tbe mouse. Before it could be re  moved it was necessary to sign a document authorizing him to put the mouse  to death, after which it was trans  ported to the gas chamber and subsequently asphyxiated. Figuring in all  items involved, the cost to the city  amounted to nearly ten dollars. Incidentally the agent assigned to the job  stated that while he had been called  out to kill a bear, several lions, one  tiger and any number of mad dogs  and cats, this was the first mouse that  cither he or the Society had even been  asked to put to death.

Rumors of bank mergers which  came into Vogue a few months, ago,  and agitated the speculative mind bo  much, have come into being again.  The fashion being revived, it is not  unnatural that a fairly large section  of the "Street" should fix upon the  Bank of Montreal and the Royal Bank  as a frame upon which to work theories. The activity, of the shares recently gives further aliment for the  report. /  It Is again persistently stated that  circumstances have trended in a direction which makes it advisable for  the Bank of Montreal to add to its  power, and that the best and most  feasible way to ensure the supremacy  of this institution's world-wide reputation itf for it to unite with a growing and influential corporation like  the Royal Bank.  It was stated by a close observer  this morning that negotiations between these two banks were slackened purposely recently while the gossip of the merger was at its hottest,  but that they have been quietly resumed again, and are likely tb prove  productive. The same authority said  he was able to furnish no proof, but  would leave time to corroborate his  remarks.'

In other words, the fisheries of Canada last year produced as much  wealth as did. the wheat of Alberta or  Saskatchewan.

VALUI-OF CHARACTER  A Detroit newspaper recently announced the death in a charitable institution for old men. of a portrait  painter of "some tame,"- at the advanced age of 80 yeaiB. Ill-health and  grief at the loss of his wife and two  children at sea when he was still,  comparatively, a young man, had, it  was said, robbed his right hand of its  cunning. His patrons slipped away,  and at 60 he was both homeless and  penniless. As is hot always, the' case  under similar circumstances, a number  of his old friends stuck to him in his  adversity, and agreed that If bis admission into some institution could be  managed, aa being the only open door,  they would pay for his maintenance.  This was arranged, and, the offer' communicated to him, only, however, to  be received with scorn. Later he was  told that he had been appointed assistant of the home without salary, a  position (?; which he occupied for 20  long years, and he died innocent of  the deception and rejoicing in the belief that he had finished his days without becoming an object of charity.  Cases such* as this should be. startling  enough to awaken the most Indifferent  to a realization of the terrible, condition of an old age of want and penury,  and to an immediate determination  to adopt some absolutely sure means  of safe-guarding himself against .such  * calamity. The Government of Can-  ad* haa supplied its people with this  means, and by the payment at any  Postal Money Orter Office of a small  amount weekly, monthly or as may be  otherwise arranged, protection against  an old age of dependence and humiliation may be made with absolute certainty. For example, the payment of  $1 a week by a man of 26 until he is  56 would give him an Annuity from  the latter age of $268.28, payable quarterly; while if he continued paying  until he n a* 69, his Annuity would be  $397.86. In either case, if he died before the date fixed for the Annuity to  begin, all his payments with compound  interest at three per cent, would be  refunded to hi* legal representatives.  Literature descriptive of the features of the Annuities System, and tables showing the cost of Annuities on  different plans, may be obtained at the  Post Office'or on application to the  Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa,  to whom letters go free of  THS  FATHER  TO   HIS  MOTHER-  tEMCHll-DREN.  Mr. W. H. Baldwin" once delivered  an address before a body of young  men in Brookline, Mass., which is ee  peclally valuable on account of the  speaker's long association with the  interests of young people. ���������-y  "The brave young man," said the  speaker, "is the one who stands  boldly up in the presence of companions and positively refuses to do that  which his conscience tells him is  wrong, when tempted, as so many  young men are, and so*very ofteii.  He is the brave young man who has  the courage to say no, or to say yes,  decisions which shall be at the time  based upon the prompt action of his  God-given conscience, the great guide  and dictator, which God has so kindly  given to each and every child of his  creation.  "The coward is the young man who  cannot, or rather does not, stand the  pressure of evil companions or friends,  who tempt and urge him, and who.  though he knows what is right, is  weak, has not the moral courage he  should possess���������in fact, he is the coward.      ''������������������  "Abraham Lincoln was once, called  upon to address some young people.  He responded to the call, but said he  would not attempt to give them an  address, but rather a short sermon.  The sermon was as follows: 'Don't  swear, don't gamble, don't, lie, don't  cheat, don't steal, don't drink, <ion't  smoke, don't chew; love God and man,  and be happy.'"  Our cities are full of young men  seeking employment. The question  is often asked, What kind of young  men are needed in the city? To this  question a part of the address of Mr.  B., who has large acquaintance with  the business men of the country,  makes a conclusive answer.  "Young men of character are in. demand. Young men without character  are not wanted by business men and  others in need of assistants."  "Lives are like liquors; the good  ones are sweetened and the bad ones  soured by the elapse of. years."  Come, gather closer to my aide,  My little smitten Hock,  And I will toll of'Wm who brought  Pure water from the rock;  Who bo|d|y led God'a people forth  From Egypt's wrath and guile,  And once a cradled babe did float  All helpless on the Nile.    ;  You're weary, precious ones, your eyes  Are wandering far and wide;  Think ye of her who knew so well  Your tender thoughts to. guide?  Who could to wisdom's sacred lore  Your fixed attention claim?    .  O, never from your hearts erase  That blessed mother's name.  'Tis time you sing your evening hymn,  My youngest infant dove;  Come press thy -velvet cheek to mine,  And learn the lay of love.  My sheltering arms can clasp you all*  My poor, deserted throng;  Cling as you used to cling to her  Who sings the angels' song.  Begin, sweet birds, the accustomed  strain;  Come, warble loud and clear;  Alas!  alas!  you're weeping all,  You're sobbing in my ear.  Good-night!   go say the-prayer she  taught  Beside your little bed;  The lips that used to bless you there  Are silent with the dead.  A father's hand your course may guide  Amid the thorn a of life;  His care protect these shrinking plants  That dread the storms of strife;  But who upon your infant hearts  Shall like that mother write?  Who touch the springs that rule the  soul?  Dear, mourning babes, good-night!  "Oh, ivlr. S-," said a young lady at  a church fair, "I want your help for a  moment. I have sold a tidy for $15  that cost fifteen cents, and I want you  to tell me what percentage that is."  "A transaction of that kind, my dear  Miss B.," said Mr. S., who is a lawyer,  "gets out of percentage and Into larceny."  PHONE  FAIRMONT  510  Little Willie was missed by his mother one day for some time, and when  he reappeared, she asked: "Where  have yoa oeen, my pet?"  "i gave a letter to all the houses in  our road.   Real letters, too.''  "Where on earth did you get them?"  questioned the mother in amazement.  "They were those old ones in your  wardrobe drawer, tied up ~with ribbon," was the innocent reply.���������Selected.  *���������***11 M..frM.fr.M-M'������������*������<"M"M"l'  W*****H'*****v***i>******i  mm mm _s"     m% 0% ___f proprietor*:  Int.

Put tbe bark into a gallon of water  and set It on the stove, allowing it to  boil ten minutes. Then strain and pour  the strained water into a tub containing sufficient amount of warm water'  to wash the skirt. Rub thoroughly In  this water. Do not use u board, but  r������b tbe garment between tbe bands.  Put the strained water back on the  stove wltb cold water and beat it Just  warm enough for rinsing water. Rinse  tbe skirt in tbis and bsng out to dry.  When it is almost dry take it from the  line and Iron it on tbe wrong side  while it Is still damp.  A bit of old kid glove or old canvas  sewed under the band9 of the skirt  Just where.the books and eyes are to  be placed will prevent the bands tearing away.  Te Prevent Drafts.

They make, by their;  foolish, reasonings and conjectures, the Book and  the Christos of the New Testament figments of the  traditions of the past, or of mysticism largely prevailing today. ���������.'  Thes*e men tell their listeners that when we read  such words as:���������''The Lord spake unto"' Moses,  saying:���������"we are not to believe that the Lord  talked to Moses direct, but that Moses gathered  from his thinking, his reasonings, his experience,  his observations, by the teachings of good men  who preceded him, by other ordinary and natural  means, and by all means except by a direct revelation that it was wise to set out the Ten Commandments. This is a common kind of speech given out  in the pulpits, theological classrooms, and in every  conceivable place by these men who pride themselves as "Higher Critics."  How do these men know that Moses found  "Thus, saith the Lord," by the above mentioned  means? How do they know that "The Lord did  NOT speak unto Moses, saying:���������"? They do not  know that they are right. Not one of them dares  affirm that he is right in his wild conjectures, on  these matters and speculative interpretations.  These men need not answer me and say*:���������" Odium  cannot prove that he is right in accepting the  Bible as the exact and sufficient word and revelation, of,God." This is not the question. I freely  admit that proof is not forthcoming from any  source, either by the Higher Critic, or by those  who accept unhesitatingly the word* of God.  What I am at here is this:���������Higher criticism  unsettles the people. Higher criticism is cold,.  cheerless and purely speculative. Higher criticism  never did, and never can arrive at any settled  basis, or fixed spot. Every higher critic who is  not a fool, or dishonest, or abnormally ignorant,  knows that the moment he enters upon the usual  course of the "higher critic" he enters upon a  problem of imagination, conjecture, and on a  course that leads him into religious quagmires,  and spiritual death.  No living man can believe in the Bible and disbelieve in it at the same time.  I read these words in Genesis:���������''Unto thy need  have I given this land, from the river of Egypt  unto the great river, the river of Euphrates.'' The  higher", critic asks nte>--"How \did Moses know-  that these words were spoken to Abraham t" Did  not Abraham live hundreds of years before Moses,  and how did these words come to the great leader  of the Hebrew, people? Were they handed down  from father to son? If so, did the father deliver  his message properly and exactly ? Did the son  catch tbe exact meaning from his father? And  so on ad infinitum. With these interrogations the  higher critic rushes out upon the unwary, upon  the simple believer, and.sets him on a line of cruel  doubt. WH'at good is the question? What man  can or ever did make answer? No man ever did  or can. This and ten thousand similar questions  are unanswerable. But what good are they to the  cpiticor to any other human being? They are no  good. They are the questions of simpletons and  not of wise men. "  J would much rather follow; the teaching of the  Pope of Rome, so far as the meaning and infer-  pretation of the Scriptures go, than listen to and  be pestered with the conjectures and senseless  ravings of the modern Higher Critics. They have  thrown doubt upon the Bible and the crop of unbelievers and lawless ones on earth, numbered by  millions, come largely from their follies.  So far as I can see, I am of opinion that among  the Protestant denominations there are fewer unsettling and unsettled "higher critics"/in the Anglican Church than in any other. They have -their  standard and hold closely to a steady and sane  interpretation of the Scriptures. This constancy  so manifest in that Church and it* splendid ritual  and service make that branch of the Christian^  Church exceedingly safe, and comforting both for  young and old, as weiras for the lettered and less  scholarly of its adherents.  The Roman Catholic Church, in like manner,  has its set interpretation of holy writ, and abides  most closely thereto. There-can be*no doubt that  apart from a few of the special, and secondary  notions, the interpretation of the Roman Church  is kept up to a high and safe standard. < I would  most assuredly accept the interpretation of the  Roman Cath6l'ic Church in preference- to that of  Professor Jackson, a prominent Methodist, Ciunp-  beH of the City Temple, .and many of the lesser  lights who follow or ape their teachings.  .y^Tneintei-pretation of'the Scriptures'by the^An^  glican Church does not tend-to infidelity^, nor 3oes  that of the Roman" Church, apart from some of,her  claims that are not, and never were Christian.  In-the'-other churches there are too many go-as-  you-please expounders of the intent of the Holy  Bible. The average college minister imagines he  is fitted by his degree and superficial training to  solve the problem of the universe. Hence his influence and his individual attempts at expounding  the Scriptures are a failure and. Itend to infidelity.  The next step is a disbelief in the presence and  overlprdship of a Great Ruler. And with this  comes a general tendency to lawlessness.  The final result of this kind of uncertain interpretation of the Scriptures is unbelief, lack of restraint and positive godlessness. Hence the  higher critics of the churches who delight in their  scholasticism, and refuse to abide by a general  standard, viz., that of their church, is laxity of  moral law which is always followed by laxity of  the country's laws.  Out of this comes a crop of men ready to do  anything that suits their monetary xwhims, anger,  vengeance and hatred of a solid fixity of order.  I have said that the Roman Catholic Church,  in so far as it has helped to drive the Bible out of  the public schools of the country, has helped to  bring about the terrible unrest of the present day.  But I4o not wish it to be understood that that  church desires to lessen the respect for, and belief  in God who rules over the world and all therejn.  The real objection to the use of the Divine Book  in the public schools is, so the Roman clergy assert, their belief that the common individual  every man's interpretation, is more hurtful to  religion in the end than the exclusion of the Rook  from the schools. They claim to give the Bible  .teaching by the many means within the reach of;;  that ehurch, and they prefer their methods of  teaching religion and interpreting God's Word to  the old-time State, method. Instead of trying to  exclude the teaching of the Bible, they claim that  the methods they adopted and are using, are giving a safer and wiser interpretation of Scripture  to their people than could be had by the free use  of the Bible in the hands of all sorts of teachers,  some of whom do not and never did shine for  their religious habits and notions.  Be this as it may, I claim that the Roman  Church, the Higher Critics, and others whom. I  shall mention later, have "helped very materially  tb bring about the unrest and lawlessness of the  civilized world, such as is common to extreme  socialists, materialists, anarchists,'the nihilists,  and the vagabond I. W. W. brotherless brotherhood of non-workers, or perhaps spasmodic  workers. ;v" ���������;'.'. > >  A COAL OOMIOSSION.  Prices of coal, in this city, are so high, so unreasonably high,-that many people for ar long  while have been asking if there be no way to  improve matters, and prevent the soaring of  charges beyond* whqt is reasonable.. . r   ..  There is no use of using strong terms to'condemn the men who are accountable for the ruling  prices of this necessary'..commodity. What is in  my raind, and seems reasonable, is this:���������There  'should be an effective means by which the rates  could be regulated. It is right that capital, as  such, should have a return. This is reasonable  and necessary. ;  Interest varying from 6 to 8 per cent, should  be allowed to capital account. After this there  should be.a delivery of coal to the consumers exactly at cost.. This means that the consumer  should pay no more than the actual cost of production, plus the percentage as dividend or interest above mentioned.  Jl is clear that the coal miners and coal dealers  , will never on their own initiative attempt to reduce the prices. Hence, if a change is to come, it  must come by aid of the government. This could  *e effected in one of two ways, either by the government owning and operating sufficient coal  deposits to serve the householders and others who  should have this'commodity at a price as'above  stated, or by the government appointing a commission with a uthority to regulate the selling  prices of coal. This commission could have given  it similar power to that which is given to the  Railway Commission of Canada. This is one of  the best and wisest moves of late years made by  any government.'- ' If our people see their way  clear to urge for sueh a commission, then let them  through the press, and in other ways, impress on  tho McBride Government to make provision therefor at our next legislature.  ,4.4i.i..i.������.i.������.ii,iiiii.ii.i..iiii..iii|l|i,1���������iii|ii|li|ll|i������ <������>%.M~^.v^^^������������������i������������������;..������l,^���������^.,^���������������������������,,^..��������� i.,i���������|I,*,.h,.������  No Delivery  No Credit  Phone tFalrmont 621  Weglveriitkeinp*  ..  fit of ill eipeue sf *  . delivery  aii keek  keeping  We Have the Goods at Prices You Like.

T1SPALLS LIMITED  (Successors to Chas. E. Tisdall)  618*620 Hatting* St., Watt  FIFTH ANNUAL HORSE SHOW,  VANCOUVER, B.C.  , The fifth annual horse, show, April  22 to 27, 1912, is now on and the center of interest in Vancouver.  The horse show colors are in great  prominence this week everywhere.  Stores, hotels, a great many pedestrians and even the horses are gaily  decorated with rosettes and ribbons.  The show being an open one, has  brought horses from Washington, Oregon and distant, provinces in Canada,  as well as in our immediate vicinity,  thus making an aggregation of useful  and beautiful horses such as has not  been equalled  in  the history  of  the  )ise show, in this city.  There are about 1,000 entries, which  are divided into 171 classes, covering  all varieties from the Shetland pony to  the heavy draught, and embracing delivery, express, saddle, hunting, work  and stock horses. Among many exhibitors and their exhibits it is hard to  particularize.  The building, gaily decorated with  flags of every description (among  which were a large percentage of  American flags), and draped with purple and gold, made an attractive setting for the many beautiful horses  shown, in the arena.  Exhibitors Oskar Huber, W. L; Corbet* and J. D. Farrell are representatives of Portland.   Mr. A. Laidlaw rep  resents Spokane, while Miss Lura Gal-  kraith conies from Seattle.  From Calgary there are three carloads of good horses, exhibited mostly  by Count de Roaldes, Count de Char-  mac and R C. Lowes. Vancouver, as  might be expected, furnishes the majority of the exhibits. Many of the  best are the property of T. J. Smith,  president of the show, D. C. McGregor,  S. L. Lowe* J. A. Russell, F. W. Rounse-  fell, W. SV Holland, P. Burns & Co.,  Mainland Transfer Co., S. J. Gilmore  of Terra Nova and Bond & Erickson.  Two of the greatest favorites are a  hackney mare, "Aranya," a new arrival  from London and a winner there in  her class, shown by T. J. Smith. Mr.  McGregor showed the "Ear^l from Bal-  linasloe," 'a' prize hunter from Dublin.  On the way across the continent he  took prizes in New York also.  Trophies.  A striking feature of the show is the  beautiful and costly trophies that are  awarded the champions in their several  classes.  These consist of ten regular and one  special, the gift of Dr. The Honorable  H. E. Young, provincial secretary, for  the best draught mare, in the breeding  classes, and offered as an incentive to  careful breeding.  The regular trophies are:  Draught Horse Championship Trophy.

'-,  The population of South Vancouver  is growing so rapidly that it is tnougat  tents win have to be erected to provide sci.uui accommodation.  ' A concert was given in the Marfew  Hall at Cedar Cottage last evening  under the auspices of the Grandview  Lodge of the Sons of England at  which the feature of the evening was  ah address by the Hon. W. J. Bowser,  attorney general. This address, which  rang British in' every sentence, traced  briefly the history of England from  pre-Roman days, calling' attention to  her greatest men in letters, science,  exploration, navigation and warfare.  Then, speaking of British Columbia  where climatic conditions were the  same, he said that a stock of stalwarts should develop here. He referred to the great Englishmen in the  early part of the province's history  notable among them being Begbie the  judge, who preserved law and order  in the colony among the gold seekers  an saved it to the crown, and of Col  Moody whose work laying out roads  was as great in its way as the earlier  road building work of the Romans in  Britain. Replying later to the vote  of thanks, he said that when the gnest  of Britain at the coronation he waa  more .than ever before impressed with  what a glorious privilege it was, to be  an Englishman.   His reference to the  On Saturday, Aim ii 20th, Mrs. Far-  ist, 1725 Commercial Drive, has the  sortment of ,wall  papers, as  can^ be'magnificent naval display at Spithead  found anywhere in Vancouver.    The evoked much applause.  reputation of carrying as hne an as-  thing, of 2941 Woodland Drive, reported damage done to two houses by falling timber which was a result of blasting operations being carried on one  hundred and fifty yards from the damaged property..  As is shown by the.various organizations which have been formed in the  district, Grandview is surely waking  up to a sense of ita. own iihportance  and the necessity M co-operation for  the general good; The churchea. ratepayers' association, .and lodges are all  doing a share In this all-important  work, and it remains tor the individual  to do his part in furthering local prosperity'. Often the public lose sight of  the fact that every dollar spent at  home helps to lower the rates and  strengthens the financial standing of  the place; whereas every dollar spent  outside means just so much loss to local public interest.  Perhaps the business men of Grand-  view, are themselves, in great measure, to blame if the conditions of trade  do not correspond with the growing  population.  In other places will be found publicity committees and business men's  organizations, which not only keep the  claims of local preference before the  public, but also gain the interest of  near-by neighbors.  There are many good business men  in Grandview, but all are as unconnected links of a chain. Unity is  strength. If someone would take the  initiative and arrange for,.a meeting  of the business element, an era of ever  growing prosperity might result.  The "Western Call"���������the reputation  ot which is well established, and which  is widely read in Grandview���������is ready  to support any organization or object  whose aims are worthy of public interest.  The programme was good all  through and nearly every artist was  called pn for second selections even  though some of them were long���������and  they all deserved it.

Mr. Axelson has been one of  the largest prize winners at the  Dry-Farmed Products Exposition the  past three years, and for two years  his son was one of the prize winners.  This year the Boys' aud Girls' Corn  Club is arranging to send an exhibit  "of wheat,' as well as' corn, and tbe  youngsters have selected, their seed  and will prepare their plots, and with  the success of the boys in the 1911  seed corn contests, they look hopefully forward to bringing tp Colorado  a Rumely tractor engine, or some  other of the valuable sweepstake  prizes that are offered.  BUTTER PRODUCTION.  What a Little Thinking Has Dene Far  th* Dairyman.  The average farmer haa but little  idea, we are convinced, of the wide  difference there is in cows or m the  systems of management, says Board's  Dairyman. Wherever we have taken  cow censuses tbe farmers were greatly surprised at tbe difference ln results  as between different hard*. Tbat  ���������bows, that to tbe mind of tbe average  farmer the yield per cow er per, bead  te, aa be aanseees, abbot the fame.  fat U la suite; cdjndktt to find one  tiardmaklnt doable or more than don*  bib the clear profit tbat eao may he  on an adjoining farm.  Cran on experiment station farms,  where everything la supposed, to be  done scientifically, tbey demooetrate ���������  wonderful difference In cowa.  Tbe Minnesota station found cows In  Ita herd wbicb returned fStUM, while  alongside of tbem other cowa roturbed  only |8.lft after deducting the coat of  feed, which waa tbe seme lb each case.  Tbe Michigan station found Ita cowa  varied from fd.18 to $M.0ft after the  feed cost wee reckoned. Tbe New  Jersey station shows that, calling milk  worth fl par hundredweight. Its cowa  varied from 18 centi profit to 148*19.  TbeNCoonecttcut station Qaurea show a  difference aa between tbe poorest and  tbe beat cowa of 1*2.70 to fPU*  Now. there are thoaaand*' of farmers  who are keeping these low paying cowa  end don't know it gomethlof l������ tbe  matter, but they don't know what  Tbey know that tbey are getting  mighty little ont of tWrtr cowa.  We can see by this how necessary it  ta to bare an inquiring mind; The  right kind of'farmer will not -att  down under such conditions. Be will  set to work to change tbem, and the  first thing be will do will be to buy a  registered bail of some breeder be can  trust That right sort of spirit has  changed whole counties In Wisconsin  over from farmers whose cows averaged 140 pounds of butter per cow per  year to an average for the whole county of 250 pounds per cow.     ���������>.,  Dut the minds of these farmers were  stirred by dairy readjlng and thinking  before the change was made. A hundred pounds more of butter a year per  cow make a big difference In the fortune of thet fawner. -    - ._  GROWING 100 VARIETIES  OF POTATOES TO EXHIBIT  is  hot  Lethbridge, Alberta, April 26.���������Tillman Reuter, member of the executive  committee of the International Dry-  Farming Congress for Oregon, informs  the Executive Secretary-Treasurer, J.  T. Burns, that Oregon will be represented at the Dry-Farmed Product Exposition here October 21-26 next, not  only by himself, but probably by several districts, and possibly by the Oregon State Agricultural College at Cor-  vallis.  Mr. Reuter has reserved 7f> feet of  space for an individual exhibit and  will compete for all prizes possible.  He writes that he will enter probably  100   varieties   of   potatoes,   and   that  hile he does not desire to compete  single-handed against the government  exhibit, he is willing to take his  chances, and serves notice upon the  Canadian farmers that they must go  ���������some to beat him in vegetables this  Stall. >  i He won theJargest number of prizes  of any. exhibitor at the Exposition at  Spokane, and at Colorado Springs last  year he won 26 prizes. One of his feature exhibits will be watermelons, and  he promises to bring to Lethbridge  some watermelons that will make  Chairman McNichol of the Exposition  Committee devote "one whole day to  a watermelon feed.  Mr. Reuter is already putting in his  crop and he reports conditions in Oregon as excellent. He recently received  a call from President Kerr and Prof.  Scudder of the Oregon Agricultural  College at Corvalis, who after inspecting his large dry-farm 'expressed themselves desiroiis of establishing a dry-  farming experimental station in his  vicinity. The ilry-farming movement  is growing rapidly, he reports, and he  looks forward to a large delegation  from Oregon attending the Seventh  International Dry-Farming Congress  at Lethbridge in October.  Chicken Propping* and HeO*.  Pigs are very fond of chicken droppings, and that is the reason they-root  over the chicken coops when tbey get  to tbem, writes O. R. Abraham in  Farm and Fireside.  I have never noticed tbat the chicken droppings did tbe pigs any harm  and do not believe tbey do yet. for. as  a rule, tbere are enough pigs in a *rn ng  so that none get enough to hurt them.  I had u sow and pigs that were doing  fine, but tbe sow's appetite seemed to  leave ber. and she would neither eat  nor drink to do any good, though 1  did my bent to make up slop to her  appetite. 1 hardly knew what to do,  for i knew It wa������ going to become a  serious problem. So I endeavored to  find tbe cause of her loss of appetite.  One morning I called ber from ber  bed to slop ber, and she came direct  to the trough, but after taking a few  swallows of the best slop I could  make up she walked directly to the  tool shed, and of course a tool shed is  a favorite haunt of chickens.  After seeing ber gobble up the droppings made tbe night previous I concluded I bad the problem solved. Fastening tip tbe shed hog, proof, I was.  satisfied that I would get results, and,  sure enough, I did. In about twenty-  four hours she "came to ber feed" and  never missed a meal from that time  on.  ���������^ ��������� /  Color of Jerseys.  Tbe American Jersey Cattle club  makes no distinction between solid color Jersey cattle and those'of broken  color���������that is. those showing more or  less white. It is true, however, that a  good many people prefer the cattle of  solid color, but more or less while  does not indicate that the animal is not  pure bred, and any one who would reject a Jersey simply on account of broken color would exhibit very poor  Judgment Indeed.

And Jim wao in a  worse strait than tbe doctor. In the  awlrl at hla foot there were two small  objects, somewhat darker than th*  heaving darkness around, them. Tbey  might well have been pieces of drift  wood, being hustled down stream, but  to Jim they would be In that dreary  future in front of him, tbo horse be  stow and the man bo murdered. ,  And the unsteady lights of tb* Soda  Creek lanterns were dancing along tbe  riv*r*e course coming down stream towarda blnv neaior and noaror, until ho  oomM boor the voteea of tboa* who  carried them m spite ot the noise of  the waters.

Abduction         '"' "���������;  Very solemnly and placing each foot  with carefully calculated precision,  the little doctor made bis way from  the Ideal to the place where old man  Hayes bad been stored out of the way  of the dogs.  The awful heat and closeness of the  bar room which he had left, made tbe  chill of the night air more noticeable.  It struck.him like a bar of cold iron  across the forehead and made him  catch his breath with a gasp. But his  errand had no terror for him. He was  one of those who, having learned - a  great deal about the mechanism of the  human body," looked upon it as an indifferent piece of machinery capable,  of many improvements, and having  about it nothing of the supernatural.  Aa a locomotive he considered It beneath contempt. Walking was at best  but a succession of falls avoided.  That had always been his opinion, hut  he had never known so much difficulty before in getting up that hind  prop In time to save a collapse.  Before starting from ths bar room  door he had taken a line upon the  bouse which he wished to reach, and  be had contrived not to lose sight of  his points, but it was difficult to keep  them, moving as he felt compelled to  do, as a knight moves at chess.  Earth seemed for once to have no  solidity; the laws of gravity in his particular case seemed to have been suspended; his feet would not keep down  and he suffered from an almost frre-  alatible temptation to allow his legs to  collapse altogether, a temptation  which arose from a growing conviction  that they really had nothing whatever  to do with him, and tbat he could  move perfectly well by the mere exertion ot will power. But he wag not'  sufficiently drunk yet to yield to this  temptation. Ho still had some control  over his memory, and he remembered  that he had tried that game before,  aad had been found In ths street very  cold indeed the next morning.  Dr. Protheroe had a considerable  knowledge of the many infirmities cf  the flesh, but his knowledge cf the different expressions of alcoholic denoen  tla was comprehensive. He even dlag  hosed his own c������89 accurately as he  staggered a.cng.  "Drunk," he  said,  severely;   "very  drunk.   Itsh the cold air has done it.  liwaysb does it;  but I'm not 'trald.

At  last oblivion came to htm, but not in  the kindly fashion to which be had  grown accustomed. There was a difficulty about his breathing which he  did not' remember^ to have noticed on  previous���������' occasions.,, It': waa - quite natural that he. ahould havo. turned ,over  on his back, but bia head was rolling  about in an unusual way. and there  aeemed to be an obstruction in front  of his mouth/  "Asphyxiashun," he decided. "Unusual symptom, rather think unnatural. Not had enough whiskey for  that," ami then he went out into space  where nothing matter id, and thought  Itself became a mere succession of  vague and disconnected suggestions.  One of these, the wost persistent,  was iv.iit he wns flying. He remembered, as you do in dreams, that he  had don? this before. He bad never  been quite certain whether it was 1n  dreams that he flew, or in waking  life. The dream had alwayB seemed  so real, but he knew that he was flying now. He felt himself going up and  up, and it was only will which supplied the motive power. He knew  tbat beeauBe he tried to. flap his wings  and could not. They were tied to his  sides.  "Heave him up on to the pinto, Bill.  He's dead to the world."  "How is he going to stick on?"  "You h������ajve him up," insisted Combe  from the other side of the stolen  horse. "Ill fix that. He'll ride as well  as the pinto's last passenger."  "The old man in there." replied TMU,  looking over ,hi8  shoulder nervously, |  and speaking in a hushed voice. . I  "Yes. Can you steady him like that !  whilst I throw a hitch around him. j  Don't let. him roll." |  "I'll try, Jim; but his less are like j  water. You'can't hold them. They,  slip all ways to om-e." j  ��������� "They   won't   do   that   long.    Now! !  How's that?" |  Combo had takejn the tie ropa from i  the pinto's raddle, and with it had j  lashed the doctor's feet together under !  ihe b*;Hy of his horse, after which he I  had pnsrrd the nfght of the rope round  his victim's   waist   and   secured  him  hia mouth gagged, and that someone,  also riding, was leading! hia horse  along the edge of a grey flood from  which came a roar and an Incessant  grinding sound. Dr. Protheroe'a earliest- impression of a river was the  union of/a doxen tiny, springs which  well up from the earth'a heart amongst  meadow sweet and frltlllariea, In. hla  naUve Wiltshire, or at the wildest a  Junction of little brown rills wbicb  wtad chattering to their meeting place  -through the purple heather of tbbt  which Gpglisb folk call a mountain,  and so gathered and united, wander  on, picking up a little friend here and  another more fully grown further on,  until together they turn a miller's  wheel or dream through lush hay fields  to the sea. .  But the Fraser, by which that silent  figure led him, is not a river of this  kind.'  Born of the snows in that barren  land where earth's ribs show above tbo  last of the black pines, the Fraser is  bitter and savage from its birth.  There are no lush grass lands for it  td flow through, no miller's wheels for  it to turn.  ��������� Its course is through sand and gravel; that it is gold gravel makes it no  more beautiful; past grey, benches  stained in leproua patches by vivid  metallic colors. It has nothing to do,  with farming until, weary ot life and  retired from business, it reaches its  muddy delta, where it farms because  It is too feeble to do anything else.  Its life's work was mining. It is the  great sluice box of northern British  Columbia, the great water power  which eats away the gold-bearing  rocks, wbicb builds the sand bars and  feeds them year by year with much  fine gold, which tempts the strongest  of our men with the possibility ot  quickly earned wealth, and having  sucked their lives out of them, leaves  them stranded in such back waters as  Soda Creek. -  The banks of it under which Jim  Combe led the doctor's stumbling  horse, were sheer cliffs of gravel, the  raw edges of a great earth wound,  through which the river tore its  course, and the brim of it was no place  Jim laughed a bird laugh.  "What is it then? You aren't drunk  ora:'fool.'' ' .  "Ain't I? That new tenderfoot, Anstruther, has broke himself up pretty  badly. Miss Clifford Is nursing blm  and wants a doctor."  "Ah!" grunted tbe doctor, and whifr  tied a strange hollow whistle like that  of a tog horn.   It was a curious trick  6e had on occasions of insight,   He  new the Risky Ranch pretty   well,  though he was no favorite there, and t  the flood, and for a few momenta the  water swept over the man, but before  either had been drifted to the level  of Protheroe, Jim had  regained his    horse's bead, and twisting tbo fingers fered her his  of one hand in the beaat'a long mane. x  swam steadily on tbo down atream  side of it   ���������������������������������������������--   ���������;-/:^-'-.^l  Once ha bad hU head above water,  the colt swam superbly, driving  against the current wltii all the energy  of young Hfe batUIng agabist death,  ao that; before, tbey had half orosaed  from shore to shore.

"No?" hesitating  questioningly  on  the monosyllable, "but you told Bill  so.   Why didn't you He to me?"  - "It    wouldn't   have   helped.  ~ You  didn't go for Bill's woman."  The doctor flinched tor the first  time, and opened his mouth as if to  defend himself, but thought better of  it, and shrugging hiB shoulders asked:  "Have you got all my instruments  and things there? That is my bag, I  think," and he pointed to the satchel  strapped upon Jim's horse.  "Yes. 1 got them before I left."  "Very thoughtful of you. Hand them  up for me to look at.

His only chance waa to cling to hia  horse; bis only hope of saving protheroe seemed to be to let go, and it;  possible, drag the doctor oot of his  saddle.  But at the last moment Protheroe  seemed to realize what was required  of him, and slid out of tbe radd'e, ho'd  Ing on to his bom's mane, and swimming ae Jim swam.  By this time both horses had drifted  below the level of the ferry, which waa  now crowding with men, gesticulating  and apparently shouting'to the two iu  the water, and some of the more sober  among the lantern bearers having got  the ferry out towards mld-strean*. were  endeavoring to let a rope do.iu towards the doctor.  But it was hopeless fishing. The  line was not long enough, and i be casting of it inaccurate. Neither Jim nor  the doctor attempted to avail themselves of it.  Side by side, stunned by the noise  around them, they battled with tbe  Fraser, whilst though the farther bank  Beemed to come no nearer, the red  lights of Soda Creek grew more dim  and distant, and the figures on the  ferry more indistinct.

Straining his eyes to the utmost,  Co.nbe thought that he could Just distinguish the line of the farther bank.  It was nearer than the Ice pack which  he could hear In the dark below him,  but was it near enough? They were  being carried down stream many yards  for every foot which they made in the  direction of the shore. It was just one  of those positions in which death is  made, doubly hard by the temptation  to struggle against it. Death itself is  probably not so very-dreadful. Nature-  is full of bogies to coerce her wilail  children, and the last bogie of all, used  mainly to make us play out our innings  to the end, is possibly the most gentle  fraud amongst them, but that struggle  In ihe dark against the Irresistible waters, with life and safety so near at  hand, was bitter to bear, and at the  very climax of it Jim's horse gave in  and turned Us h^ad down stream.  In a moment they were racing towards their death. After all that long  stubborn fight against the stream,  with the shore almost within reach,  tbe failure of the roan's courage had  ruined them.
