The world is slowly, awakening to the fact that  man, for "sport" or gain, is committing an outrage upon the future.  When a man inherits a landed estate which is  "entailed," as we say, ha J* only a sort of life  trustee. He is not allowed, to cut down the timber,  or to sell the precious picture* or other heirlooms  which have come to him. - These are to be preserved for the 'enjoyment of future generations  of his family. Jt is only right that the same principle should hoi$ good regarding animal life.  Life cannot be replaced; a species once exter-  minaated is gone for ever. What right have we  ruthlessly to slaughter tiie birds and animals  which we find in the world, 60 that in future  they shall be a name and nothing more to those  who come after us?  This is the outrage upon the future that we  .are committing now. We are slaying all the useful wild animals, all the lovely birds. Everything  that ia scarce has a market value. If there were  only one dog left in all the world, dome wretch  with* a gun would want to shoot it, to sell its body  to place in a museum.' Within the lifetime of our  books,-great families of the animal world have  been entirely blotted out. The dodo and the  solitaire are gone f the great auk is represented  only by a few eggs. Still morerecently the bison,  which, within the memory of living men, roamed  the prairies of America in countfe** swarms, has  been so nearly swept out of existence that only a  handful are preserved as curiosities in a few public parses.  Sn all India,  has wrought  jessed declaring  animals without Government'perjaijsiou.  Great Britain has been robbed of ft great number of the birds that used to visit her shores, as  well as of native birds' which lived all the year  within Her boundaries. We seldom hear now of  the arrival of a rare bird, uu!e������s  3  m  Columbia, MAY 31, 1012.  ���������M������������|aaf������teMM������������-H*������M  By G. *������'%%  V  NO SALOON FOR HIM  v SMJ  It was hoped at one time that Hon.

Showmen cater to the  furnished.. '  Sealskin is fashionable, sable is fashionable; oil  from the blubber of the common seal and the  whale has a value.  So the butchers slay and slay.  They have so persecuted the Arctic fox and the  sable that if these animals are given years of un-  harried freedom they, can scarcely replenish their  numbers. The sea-otter is almost exterminated.  The fur-bearing seaei\J8 seen only in dozens today  where once it was seen in thousands.  In the case of the fur-bearing animals, there is  just a shadow of excuse that the fur worn is  better than other clothing���������though if it were as  common as rabbit-skin this argument would never  be used. There is not, however, a bit of excuse  for the slaughter of birds, which has been carried  on to such an extent that good men are shocked  and ashamed. Why are our beauty birds slain  and their little ones allowed to perish in their  nests t Because vain, hardhearted women insist  on wearing their plumage.  It cannot be urged that women do not know  the shameful cruelty which their fashions cause.  They do know; every woman knows that the  bautiful plumage worn on women's hats is obtained at the cost of the lives of birds.  ' To gratify woman's vanity, men are stripping  the world of its beauty birds. Birds of paradise  and other birds of splendid plumage have been  harried almost out of existence.  It is a strange and bitter reflection on our  civilization that this wrong has been done at  the instance of our wealthy women; the poor  cannot afford the barbarous luxury of rare birds'  feathers. The cruelty is practiced for the gratification of those whose purses lay their whole  world open to their choice. To please these  women the fashion of a summer.may blot out  fro mthe book of life a species of birds which  Nature has taken millions of years to bring to  perfection.  Future generations, when they look back on  our day, will feel ashamed of us, as we feel ashamed of the monsters who exterminated the American bison, the dodo, and the great auk; as we  feel of those who, in America, have reduced the  myriads of passenger pigeons to a fe wstragglers,  who have almost exterminated the egrets, the  trumpeter swan, the wood-duck, the rosy spoonbill, some of the- curlews, and other birds with  which the wild solitudes were once gladdened.

Yet in the person of Mrs. Ellen Calverley, 309 Lip-  pencott street, both of these miracles  are presented to the view of Toronto  citizens.  Mrs. Calverley is a quaint old character to talk to, and her deep-set blue  eyes still flash fearlessly while she  is'speaking. The hair that is once  again her crowning glory, lies in light  folds of snowy white across her head,  giving her face a winning expression  that is almost irresistable.  Her youngest son, Mqses Calverley,  lives in South Manitoba and is known  to many of the citizens of Vancouver.  Mrs. N.

P. programme  a few weeks ago for construction work  in this vicinity, a decided stimulus is  in evidence in building and real estate  lines in Melville. Arrangements are  now completed for the erection of the  new city hall, to cost $55,000; and  many houses and store buildings are  also planned for construction during  the present season. It is also stated  that negotiations are now in progress  which will assure this city a new post  ofllce in tfie near future. The coming  of the Dominion Milling Company with  new 300-barrel flour mill Will mean the  erection of a whole new row of houses  for workmen.  Not Overlooking Lethbrldge.  LETHBRIDGE, Alta.���������Preparations  are already being made for tbe entertainment in Lethbridge on July 10 of  the party* of investors, business men  and manufacturers who are to tour  Western Canada next month. It is announced that the party, wbicb includes  tbe head officials of about fifty of tbe  leading industrial concerns of Great  Britain, representing an aggregate capitalization of some 1250,000,000, will  sail for Canada on the Empress ot  Britain on May 1. The itinerary of  the tour will include practically every  important centre from coast to coast,  the entire trip occupying about six  weeks. It is noted that since the commencement of Letbridge's world-wide  publicity campaign in connection with  tbe coming dry-farming congress many  capitalists and large and small investors have been making special investigations on their own account with a  ������������������.lew. to the purchase of real estate in  and around Lethbridge.  of new industries about to locate in  Medicine Hat will be in excess of all  past records. Among these industries  most recently listed as certain prospects are, a window-glass plant, a pottery plant, an iron foundry, a fire-clay  plant, a barbed wire and nail plant, a  glass works and; clay and sewer-pipe  plant. These various plants will employ all the way from 60 to 1,000 hands  each.  Mecca for Eastern Investors.  LACOMBE, Alta.���������The Lacombe district has in the last few months become a veritable Mecca for Eastern  investors, and many well-known syndicates now have extensive interests  here which: are likely to play an important part in the future of this city.  WEAR;YOUR BEST.  When you have anything better to  wear then do not go forth shabby.  When you have anything prettier to  wear, then do not attend the party  looking like a scarecrow.  Never don a ragged garment if you  own a whole one of the kind. Treat  your clothes and belongings after the  manner of the manna in the wilderness.

In most large irrigated  sections the water supply is under the  control of the Oovernment or private  corporations.   However, if the supply  is to be secured by private enterprise,  the farmer must make use of available  sources such as natural springs, lakes,  rivers, creek* or wells. It may be  necessary to build ditches of various  lengths to carry the water from its  point of origin to the land. Oftentimes co-operaition between, several  land owners will reduce the cost of  building such a ditch to a minimum,  the water should be carried to the  highest points on the land to be irrigated, and distributed by means of  small lateral ditches or flumes. Since  the loss by seepage from an open ditch  is great, the use of wooden flumes is  advisable whenever possible. These  are not only fairly permanent and  economical of water, but permit complete control 'of ;the: water when irrigating. The flumes, from which the  water is to be delivered into the.furrows, should be placed at Intervals ot  about twenty-five (25) rods. The size  of these flumes varies from six to ten  inches; however, the. eight-inch flume  is the size most commonly used. The  water is drawn from these flumes by  means of one-inch holes placed at in-  Great West Cartage Co.  B. F. Andrews.  Limited  .  H.W. Ellis  H. H. Williams  A. E.

Itatlsfs ft Aheott Si.  Vaacoaver, B.C.     ~  tervals of about three feet. The supply is regulated by a tin or wooden  slide nailed over the hole.  In clean cultivation with young trees  a furrow is made on each side of the  row, and in old orchards the space  between the trees is furrowed at intervals of about three feet or even  closer in sandy soil. These furrows  are made about four inches deep with  a small plow or single-shovel cultivator.  The.slope on which all ditches or  flumes should be built is of great importance. It is common fault for a  new man to get the fall too great.  One inch to twenty-five feet is plenty.  However, if the contour of the land  demands a greater fall, the progress of  the water may be checked by means, of  small stones or short lath "strops"  placed across the flume.  The minimum fall for furrows between the trees should not be less  than four Inches to each hundred feet  for_clay soil and eight inches for sandy  soil. The maximum fall is governed  by local conditions. If the land is  very steep the furrows must be made  across the slope and not up and down.  THE ADVANTAGES OF WATER  UNDER PRE88URE. So far the use  of Water from open ditches has been  discussed. However,-in many districts  people are placing water under pressure, and the results show it to be a  very feasible plan. The pipes used to  carry the water are made of concrete  and are placed under ground. Small  one-inch iron pipes with stop-cocks  extend up to the tree rows from the  the house and barn for domestic use.  Having now constructed the means  of distribution of the water, we will  consider its application.  THE APPLICATION OF .THE  WATER. Having the leveling 'done  and the ditches and flumes constructed, the' process of applying the water  is simple. The water 1b permitted to  enter the lateral ditches or flumes and  tbe small gates are opened. As the  water creeps down the furrows the  irrigator must watch to see that no  furrows become blocked or run together. The time required to finish  Irrigation varies from three days to a  week or more, but may be determined  by tbe methods mentioned In paragraph on "Amount of water to use."  In case the land is newly graded, it  should be well Irrigated to settle the  loose place* before planting is started,  or great difficulty may be encountered.  It is & good plan to place clover or  some crop on the land one year previous to planting. This not only permits it to settle, but also enriches the  soil.  AMOUNT OF LAND ONE MAN  CA NIRRIGATE. This is rather a difficult question to answer because of  the variation found in different locations. The crop grown, soil, contour  of the land and ability of irrigator  limit the amount handled by one. man.  If thdr-sreoard Is in clean cultivation,  one njan should handle .from thirty to  fifty acres. This may seem a large  area to some men, while to others it  will appear very small. However, a  small area well cared for is better  than a large area neglected.  RELATION OF IRRIGATION TO  TILLAGE. In a previous paragraph  mention was made of the importance  of cultivation after irrigation. Since  this Is a very important point, the  writer feels that it should be given  special attention.

These pipes should  extend a foot above the surface of the  ground and be placed near a tree, so  as not to hinder cultivation.

This- represents a  total deduction from the area sown of  about 345,000 acreB (229,000 acres in  Ontario and 116,000 acres in Alberta).  The average condition of winter wheat  on April 30th was 72.63 of a standard  (71.24 per cent, in Ontario and 76.80  per cent, in Alberta). From these figures it is calculated that the yield  per acre from winter wheat in 1912  is likely, to be about: 20 bushels per  acre or 13 per cent, less than the average yield of the three years 1909-11,  viz: 23.33 bushels per acre, provided  that average conditions prevail between now and harvest.  In  the  Maritime  provinces  spring  seeding on April' 30th had only begun  here and there, most of the ground  being still under snow.    Very  little  progress had. been made by the same  date in Quebec, the amount of seeding  done   representing   not   more    than  about 3 or 4  per cent.    In Ontario  about 15 per cent of the total seeding was completed, but thia applies'  Chiefly to the western and southern j  parts of the province.   In the North* j  west provinces the wet condition of i  the ground, coupled with cold_ weather | ^^ve^hat we  and the small amount of fall ploughing completed last year, has caused  seeding operations  to be  somewhat  backward.   In Manitoba 50.13, in Saskatchewan 71.54 and In Alberta 61.26  per cent, of the   seeding   of   spring  wheat was completed by the end of  April and of total seeding done the  percentage proportions were:    Manitoba, 36.63;  Saskatchewan, "49.30, and  Alberta, 51.50.'

There was a remarkable gathering  of scientists at Manchester. They  came from many parts of the world,  all with the same object���������to talk about  earthquakes. That is their business  in life. They are appointed by the  governments of nations to study these  awful mysteries.  An earthquake may overthrow a city  In a moment and bury great numbers  of people, as happened a few years  ago at San FranciBCO. A disaster of  a still worse character devastated  Messina, in Southern Italy, where over  .150,000 lives were lost, about three  years ago.  /Oreat Britain; seated upon a mountain of great extent, which is made up  of what is regarded as very solid rock,  1b no- stranger to earthquakes.

But  Japan has earthquakes every^ day in;  some, part of her dominions.  ; It was from the earthquake districts  of the world that these scientists gathered together at Manchester o compare, experiences. They have discovered hat earthquakes do not occur  haphazard, but are led up to by certain definite circumstances, and.their  object is to get together such a body  of knowledge that they, will be able  to know when an earthquake.Is coming and to take precauti-r.s.:  Already they have agreed that they  may call earth-  I quake houses toy earthquake countries.  \ Bricks and mortar ViU not do; they  | topple down upon the occupants of the  j house and kil} them.

METHODISM PROSPEROUS.  The Methodist Conference held ln  Victoria has been an event of world  wide interest and importance.  The overwhelming majority in  favor, of church union, is an indication of the trend of the times. The  old time churchism is yielding to new  time Christism and the salvation of  the race. Denominational narrowness  is retiring and Christian liberality, intelligence and love having right-of-  way.. '   '��������� .  The vote was as follows:  Official boards���������For 951, against  113, out of 1267. Adult - members:  For 4725, against 393, out of 8651.  Juniors: For 517, against 24, out of  973. Adherents: For 1015, against 70,  out of 1375.  There are thus 7263 for   and    600  against, or twelve to one majority in  favor. The quarterly boards voted  nine to one in favor of the vote. The  returns will be forwarded to the general conference secretary.  Other evidences of progress were  shown in the building of church, colleges and raising of money for the  spreading of truth and the advancement of man's present and future conditions.  The conference will co-operate with  the Presbyterians in erecting and  maintaining a university at Point  Grey. $300,000 is to be raised for this  purpose.  During .the past   year   nine   new  churches have been built, representing a value of $87,500, four new parson-  'ages, valued at $12,964; one cemetery,  T  ������t'll4'������l������*l"l-������l"l"l'>l"l"ll'l"I"������'i"l"l'-l"Ill"������   ****************************  ������  Y*  *  I  Use Stave Lake Power  Those Industries are Better  In ultimate results which use our electric  power service.

The conference expressed commendation of the enterprise shown by  the Vancouver districts in seeking to  establish a church institutional building on the Scandinavian mission site  on Cordova street. It is proposed to  build a six-storey building, with all  the accessories of a modern church  building, and to add to the revenue by  renting the rooms above.' The report  was presented by Rev. A. M. Sanford,  who has been one of the most energetic workers in the Methodist church  extension movement in Vancouver.  There will be a church and manse  on the lower floor, a banqueting room  in the basement, and 137 rooms above  to be let for ��������� apartment purposes.  There will also be a schoolroom, library and other modern Methodist adjuncts. The report proposed to raise  a mortgage of $70,000 and subscribe  -the balance, about $150,000, from the  Methodists or the province.  We are pleased to note that Rev.  R. F.

Page 3)  rain until the next irrigation, as indicated in a previous paragraph. -  COSTS. The question of ;vital importance to the man planning ^on  placing his land under irrigation"^  "How much will all this work cost?"  This question cannot be answered off  hand. Every farm is a problem in  itself. Some land may be brought  under for as little as $4.00 or $5.00 per  acre, while other land often costs  $100.00 per acre. Estimates on the  cost of grading and ditch construction  work may be secured from men who  follow this work as a profession.  In general the cost of clearing,  levelling and construction of ditches  ranges from $36.00 up to $40.00 per  acre. This varies according to cost  of labour and material to the conditions confronted while doing the work.  Any man who can do the work himself need not fear the costs, because  it is all of a practical nature and requires little experienced aid. Many  new and valuable ideas may be obtained by watching other people engaged in'similar work.  SPECIAL POINTS TO REMEMBER:���������-  1. Have land in good condition before attempting Ho irrigate.  2. \ Thorough applications of water  at long intervals are better than light  applications at shorter intervals.  3. Over-irrigation is more common  than- tinder-Irrigation; beware of getting your soil water-soaked.  4. Have good drainage to prevent  the accumulation of salts by evaporation of water from the surface.  5. Cultivate as soon as possible  after each irrigation,'and every ten  days or two weeks and after every  rain until the next irrigation.  6. Have land free from trash.  7. Even though you have more  water than you need, don't use it; it  is poor economy and may lead to disastrous results:  CONCLUSION. In this circular the  writer has attempted to cover the  main points and to make it as practical as possible,'Since he understands  that the ordinary Irrigator has neither  the equipment nor time to make extended investigations. The reader  must hot feel that the methods mentioned above a*re the only ones,, because they are not. Many systems are  much more complicated and require a  great amount of capital to install and  operate. The ones mentioned in this  circular are practical, economical and  have been found to-be very efficient.   ;  ************************** **************************  *   Bake Ovens Chiropractic Electric Thei  t* Spinal Derangements Nervous Diseases  | Hot Springs Sanitarium i|  | 725 3mytlie Street *  SPECIALTIES:  Ladies'Baths , Face Bleaching Hair Coloring  Electrolysis Chiropody  Miss Hone, Matron  Massage  ;������  ************************** **************************  ************************** **************************     I  * ARE YOU INTERESTED IN B.C.METHODISM?

I con h������  Ter bold up my head again if you  don't let me go."  There was such a genuine ring of  entreaty in the young:follows voice  that Rolt, looking at him, wavered.  He understood that, to a mjur like  Anstruther, -there might be worst  things than death.  "Couldn't we Bettle- it by drawing  lots? That's what they always do in  books."  It was Fairclougb who spoke. and  In the impasse to which they bad  come the suggestion met with some  favor.  y "If I agree to-Mr. Fairclougb'a sug-  gestlon," said* Rolt, seeing tbat the  feeling of the meeting was with the  last speaker, "it will only be on the  understanding, tbat all draw. I will  waive my right to go first If you will  all agree to that.   Otherwise I go."  For a few minutes Combo aud An  Struther tried to argue with him. but  though the easiest-going matt in British Columbia as a rule, Rolt could  be sufficiently resolute upon occasion.  "It ain't no use argufying," said Al.  Irritably. "Seems to me we had ougti.'  to know the Boss by now. He's tia;  blanked contrary that if every one  eise was keeping Christmas, lic'd p.;t  ln tha day hauling gravel. May a-  well cut for the deal If he says s���������.>."  This settled It, and Rolt, turning tt>  Anstruther, asked him to get a pack of  cards from Mra. Rolt.  -When Anstruther had gone to net  tbe cards. Rolt turned to Combe:  "Is it any good keeping this from  the ladles?    They might prevent  his  .going if the lot should fall to him.  ^Nothing else will, and I don't be lieve  tbat he could sit a horse for a mile.  His ribs can't be knit yet."  "Don't you worry about that colt.  Boss. He ain't used to our ranr-ie yet.  but he's a bit of good stuff and hard  er nor you think.

She had cast the cards on the  table, and now stood facing the men.  a tall, slight figure, as calm to aU outward seeming as if this were but the  beginning of a game of bridge.  "Yes, ma'am.

"Then I cut for my husband.

At once Jim, Al, and Anstruther  went to the table together, but Mrs.  Rolt held up her hand.  "hi order of. precedence, please,  gentlemen." And then with a little  curl about her lips: "Our,'.guest comes  first," and young Fairclough came j  from his corner with somewhat overdone nonchalance and turned a card  quickly. |  "No luck," he Bald, as he turned up  a nine.        *  "You don't know yet, Mr. Fair-  clbugh," she said sweetly.

"  His rule was Justified. The card  he chose had only one pip on It, but  for a moment his face clouded. Then,  be smiled again. t  "Ace low, you said, Mrs. Rolt?"  "I thought that Jim Combe was a  square player," she said, but there  wa*Ni������ censure in ber tones. "Ton  know the rule, Jim. Stand back.  Your turn, Al."  "Give 'me a little 'un, ma'am."  She hesitated. It Is not pleasant  to send an old friend to his death,  and the cards which had been cut  were all high.  "You want me to cut for you, Al?"  "If the Boss don't mind, ma'am."  Rolt nodded to her to humor the  old man, but her hand shook as she  turned up a five of spades.  "Ob, Al, I'm so sorry."  "Then you afil't got nd 'call to be.  It's what I asked for, ain't' it, and I  mostly asks for what I want," and he  swung gaily round on.bis heels to  leave the room.

You ain't fit to go, and there ain't anything there no lower than a five."  "There are three lower, Al. It yon  please, Mrs. ,Holt."  Mrs..Rolt looked up into the quiet  smiling face, aud saw a light in it  which she had: never seen before. It  was as if Anstruther knew what lay  in store for bim, and the knowledge  made him hold his head more proudly.  "He is right, AI. You pledged yourselves that all Should cut. Take your  card. Frank."  As she spoke Kitty Clifford moved  from her friend's side uncertainly towards Anstruther, and then stood  hesitating, her lips trembling and her  sweet eyes full of unshed tears.  "What Is it, Kitty? Do you want to  cut tor him?"      '  She tried to answer, but no sound  came from her parted lips.  "Shall she cut for you, Frank?"  "Will you. MIbs Clifford���������Kitty?"  and he held out his hand to her. For  a moment the boy and girl stood there  band in hand before that .altar of  chance, forgetful of the world and  reckless of the betrayal of their secret.  It was a strange betrothal, but such  tt seemed to all who saw them. In a  silence which could be felt, tbe girl's  wbite band began to, move uncertainly over the pack, touching a card here  and another there, as if afraid ta  choose.  The others had drawn their lots at  once. To tbem it seemed that minutes elapsed whilst that little hand  wandered over the table, and each  man prayed in his own fashion that  she might choose aright.  At last, like a child who fears to see  the knife, she shut her eyes, and  clutching a card, held it up to Anstruther, over whose face a proud smile  spread as bright and genuine as daylight.  "Thank you, dear. You have saved  my honor. You don't mind if I spoil  your pack. Mrs. Bolt. I shall want  this card by and by more than, you  will," and kissing it, he put it into his  breast pocket.  But Kitty caught at his hand and  cried to him to show it to her.  "Another time, dear. It is the best  card in the world for me."  "What was it, Frank? Show it to  me, oh, show it to me!"  "Not now, Kitty," and bending  down, he kissed her white brow- bo-  fore them all, and with his arm round  Ler waist, half led, half carried, her  to Mrs. Rolt.  "Take her away now. For God's  sake take her away!" he said, and  Mrs. Rolt led Kitty sobbing from tbe  room.  "Oh, Mary!    Mary!    I have killed  Frank���������-"  ain't pdtting up a job on us?" ,  "No, Al.

"Leave Miss Clifford's name, out of  the question, please. I'm very much  obliged to you for what you suggest,  but there are some things you don't  understand. I'm going, and there's an  end of it."  "When?"  "When I am ready," Anstruther answered, and left the room.  "Pretty rough; on them kiddies, ain't  it, Jim?" said* Al, when, Anstruther  bad left the room, "and she's dead  stuck on him.  But I guess he's right."  "Right?"' snorted Combe. "Right?

Perhaps half a dozen Indians followed directly in Anstruther's footsteps  likeya pack of hounds running in view,  but the main body of tbem, realizing  their quarry's mistake, skirted, making for the dip where the road went  through, to which they imagined he  must eventually come, if "be would  cross the canyon.  For half a mile tbe going was good,  firm, grass-covered cattle land, and  over this the red coat sailed, going  two lengths for every one covered by  his pursuers.

D.)  What has come over the C. P. R.?  There is a well authenticated rumour in town  that the important C. P. R. contract for their  new*depot, etc., has been let to a New York  firm for $1,750,000.00. And this without any  Vancouver firm being given a crack at it!  There is truly something "rotten in the state  of Denmark" when such deals can take pkee  *tndcr our noses���������so to speak���������and the greatest  railway in Canada���������built through a British country by British capital���������can act so queerly towards  Iheir own countrymen. ' y'::  I say without fear of-wntradiction, there are  several firms in Vancouvei who could have han-  41<id this work ,:with\';e4n'i!ii.;iaeility':..;..to-. any New  Hfork firm-r-men who have carried out and successfully carried out-���������far larger jobs than this  new depot. One wonders how it comes about  that a Canadian railway can act in this offhand  fashion and so flout local public opinion as this'  company are now constantly doing.  Comparisons are odious, but one-cannot help  contrasting, say, any ordinary Vancouver firm,  who keep an office and staff here, the expenses  of which will reach anywhere from $600.00 to  $1,000 per month���������this contractor when he makes  g profit spends-���������bis-'money; here, and more often  than not invests in property which will be an  annual contribution to the local taxes. On the  other side of the picture we have a couple of outsiders whose address is a room in a hotel���������this  gerves aa their offices, too, and all business is-  conducted from it. Surely the ordinary man in  tfce street will say the C. P. R. will favor the  established local firm first; Not a bit of it; they  -|>ave just let a contract to such a bell-hop firm,  god one can easily imagine what happens to any  profit they may make. *'.-...  . Bravo the School Trustees! Here's a different  J#ncj of tale to tell and one cannot but admire  tt������e strong stand they have at last, i^enin award-  jri|r the new school* to Canadian firms pure and  ftmple, as the $. fc. Oso Co. That's as things  ghould be, and let any scoffer who doubts go  across the line and try to get a job on public  works���������he will be promptly told���������and quite  rightly so���������that TJncle Sam wants all his public  .work for bis own people, and he keeps it that  '"way.  There is a School Trustee, and there is a certain alderman who are everlastingly preaching  the gospel of accepting the "lowest price," no  matter who the firms are. Dago, Chink, or J3s-  quirao, it's all the same to these two men, but I  trust the Empire League will have an eye on  both these gentlemen when election day comes  round  again,   and will get after   them pr-stty  sharp.  Two blacks" do not yet make a white.    (  The thanks of all who were present at Consulting Engineer Conway's lecture on the evolution  of bridge building, were tendered that gentleman  for for his extreme urbanity in redelivering a  most interesting discourse. Mr. Conway has a  charming command of the English language, and  it was not only a learned discourse he gave, but  a splendid literary effort as well. The after, discussion was also very interesting, and hospitality  crowned the lecturer's efforts in a pleasing, manner. Hats off to the B..C. E. R. who lent the room,  furnished the.light���������and to Mr. Conway for his  very, able address���������which was one that every citizen could have heard with profit.  Vancouver undoubtedly needs an civic industrial commissioner, who should be a tip-top man,  closely in touch with all the leading manufactures  of the Dominion, and well posted in those of the  Old Country���������-suitable to, open here. "Wfe.shall  never build up an industrial city, outside building or railway-work else. lam moved to these  comments by hearing only this week of a man  who came to Vancouver to seek out a suitable industry, and to begin with he could not locate  a suitable industrial site, it seems to be nobody's  business to trot such around���������the Progress Club  are too busy and the -B.-C. Empire League have  not properly got going as yet.  Such a commissioner should be in the city's  employ and give his whole time to this kind of  business, his job would, of course, depend? on  results, and then we should soon get a start. T'he  whole thing, however, is a very- big question  and the time will come when the Government  will have to step in and ��������� establish industrial  CREDIT BANKS���������^which can advance certain  cash against a man's business assets in the form  of, say, debenture stocks.  That will be when thereal estate age comes to  an end and commerce comesinto her own. >,y-  One or two of us were chatting over this the  other.day and a few examples occurred readily  to mind���������typical of what the Briton has done  and can do yet���������in the field of commerce.  One case was that of a small baker and confectioner .who, after carefully husbanding his resources, began to branch out into other fields with  the result he died worth $20,000,000.00, leaving  his son a cool $15,000,000.00 cash, besides colleries  and lands galore���������and it was said at the time  that the son was as rich a man as tbe father when  this happened. He is now the riehest commoner  in England, worth anything up to $50,000,000,  made in trade and commerce, which began with  making and selling a penny bun, and turning  and returning over the profits in other trades.  That jman's; name is Sir Chas. Seeley.  Another gentleman whose name came forward  as moving tbe amendment to the Home Rule  Bill, was the son of a carpenter who left him an  immense fortune and is now head of the Page-  Croft family.  JEWELRY MAN U FACTU RE.  the art of jewelry manufacture has  always enjoyed the patronage of  kings and princes, the blaze and magnificence of jewels adding dignity and  grandeur to their position, besides it  is one of the oldest of arts, dating  back to time immemorial. Before  Caesar was thought of and long before Columbus dreamed 'of a world  across the seas, the Phoenicians traded with the ancient Britons and bartered silks and jewels for their raw  material and. metals.  Ancient jewelry, though lavish in  its display of gold was always crude  in design and manufacture, the precious stones being uncut and the metal  hammered into shape, however the  advance of science and invention has  had its Influence In the manufacture  of jewelry and the cutting of precious  stones, especially so in the latter.  In the modern cut diamond with its  62 facets we have the last word of  science in stone cutting; by exact calculation the facets are cut at an angle  which allows the greatest reflection  from one to another, giving to each,  perfect in cut, stone the acme of brilliancy.  To the average person the fascination of a. jeweler's stock is proverbial  and few can resist the temptation to  stop and admire the display in the  window.  Notable among the first-class jeweler's stores in this city is that ot  Geo. (J. Bigger, at 143 Hastings street  West. During his twelve years In business it has been his endeavor to place  before the public the best goods and  the best service; today it is his position to offer to his patrons a stock unsurpassed In quality; diamonds of the  first water suitable for engagement  rings in solitaire 3-stone and 5-stone  settings, Bparkling cut glass and silverware of enduring quality suitable  for wedding gifts, to say nothing of  the endless array of brooches, necklets, chains, etc. In the watch and  jewelry department the highest standard of workmanship is maintained and  the finest work turned out satisfactorily, ��������� :' - ;.���������'-.- " '��������� ������������������'.'���������''  No first-class jewelry store is complete without its optical'department'  Mr. Bigger has given the public a  splendid up-to-date service in this respect A graduate optician is in  charge, who Is thoroughly competent  to test eyes, fill oculists prescriptions  and replace broken lenses. A visit to  Bigger's store will well repay one for  the trouble. .The greatest courtesy is  assured to all visitors.  **>  o  XI"  *������*>  ��������� r���������i  ::Ol  o  X  <v  ��������� i���������t  o  x  /*>  **-i  ���������*���������i  o  X  *v  Opifex Opifex Opifex Opifex  The Man Who Introduced 5>'  OPIFEX BIFOCELS  To Vancouver  9  Opifex  bifocals   have   become  estab  KA  lished as the best medium price bifocals >���������*���������**. j  yet produced. >^ t  W.Qrlmmatt  >*>  Opifex knife-edge wafers are" so thin ������5,  as to be practically invisible when on the r*-hj  face, thus making the ideal medium price bifocals. t ������B;  Opifex bifocals are placed on the distance glasses and distance rv  and reading equally clear. ^)  Opifex glasses are so made that that prismatic effect so annoy- **cT  ing in the ordinary double vision glasses is done away with.

A Great Chanat Thai Is Coming Over  London.  A great change is passing oyer London before the eyes of those who live  there. The horse is growing less and  less noticeable In the streets, and the  motor Is taking its place. The London  General Omnibus .Company, which  owned the majority of the horsed  buses, has still 94 of these vehicles,  worked by 1,300 horses, but the last  of them will have gone by the beginning^ October.  Nine years ago there were only ten  motor-buses In London, againBt nearly  4,000 horsed buses. The new inventions, which were imperfect, and often  held up on the roadside for repairs,  were laughed and Jeered at, but In four  years the motor-buses grew to over  200, and the older vehicles had begun  to decline. And now the end of the  horsed bus is in sight, except for out-  of-the-way routes. Ix)ndon has now  1,500 horseless buses, and the number  is rapidly growing. Better still, the  type is Improving, being more silent,  more reliable, less "smelly" and offensive, and the streets of the greatest  city In the world are growing cleaner  and healthier for the change.
