Why is Point Grey t Because of Harvey's  "saucer" t  That is a mote question that has bothered many  a one of us from time to time, but it begins to  be self-evident that everyone and everything is  going "grey1' in that locality owing to the crass-'  headedness of the P. Gv Council.  Take this sewerage contract, for example, which  they first let to Mr. Geo. Webster, ihe well-known  local contracting engineer, for a sum of $153,000  odd. The next thing one hears is that they have  changed their minds���������bless the dear children���������  and re-let the same contract to a Seattle firm for  $155,000   -Just $2,300 more!  The ratepayers will, of course, appreciate the-  kind care of the local funds this shows, and also  will no doubt provide all the needed packing cases  needed to send the good dollarsI of Point Grey  over Uncle Sam's way. "Harvey's sauce'' with a  vengeance.  One redeeming feature, ia they seemi to have a  clerk who knows his business and who diligently  pursues it., I often wonder what kind of a glorious tangle some of these petty municipalities  would find themselves tied lip in, were it not for  more buBiness-like oflRcials than some of the councillors themselves seem to be.  If "dead men tell no tales,'' Deadman's Island  seems to have excited the! living to" tell a few  fairy stories from time to time, and even our  "only Joe Martin''---the political clown of the .  West���������-eomes up with a "Here we are again'���������  sort of expression,,as if there being some dirty  party work to be done, he couldn't possibly keep  out of it even for a consideration.  That Ludgate lied when he alleged it was the  desire of the people to have a $250,000 sawmill  there, was obvidus aftet the remark of Mr. H. H-.  Stevens, MP., at the Pender Hall meeting. That  many others have been'lying abont this shady  transaction ever since seems also painfully evident. X  Here is a small portion���������an offshoot aa it were���������  of Stanley Park lying right down by the mouth  of Vancouver's land-locked  harbor,  and  absolutely essential in these1 days for purposes of bar- "���������  bor defence, yet the Laurier������������������', government calmly :  give away what for aU intents and .purposes is a  part and parcel of Stanley Park to a private,  clique.  "Born in iniquity," as Mr. H. JI. Stevens put  it, is none too strong, and it would not surprise  me to find out in the end that it is the Ludgate  interests who are the real trespassers on the \Dead-  man 's Island portion of. the people's domain���������  Stanley park. A lease obtained by such obvious  fraud, and put through with such indecent haste,  can sometimes be upset if it can be shown that  the intention of the parties were dishonest, or  that the government of the day acted ultra vires  and gave away jrhat did not belong to them.  The harbor question is of such vital interest, not  only to Vancouver, but throughout the West, that  /it certainty is fitting that it be made a national  port. The docks and wharfage accommodation  must be of the very best* and access free and unrestricted for the business public must be provided at all times.  Every good dock has a public approach free  from all restrictions, and Vancouver's must be  wide open in that respect. That a strong Board  or Harbor Trust should control it goes without  saying,  Once more it becomes necessary to call attention to the need of a Merchants' Commission to  assist the Board of Trade over the railway rates  question. There are, there must be lots of merchants who have no connection with the Board  whatever, who can produce thousands of examples of overcharging by the railways that will  never see the light of day else.  Two months ago I suggested that the new depot  have a good roadway alongside it which would be  an extension of Granville Street. Now I see by  their plan in the Province that is what they propose, and very great will be the improvement.  One of the finest ever done in Vancouver and the  company should not be stingy either whilst they  are at it. Why not take my other suggestion  and extend an elevated concrete roadway right  along over part of the tracks and next the waterfront?  What a beautiful boulevard could be made from  say MAIN Street right along to Coal Harbor, and  the cost would not be so enormous either. Speaking roughly, I would say the whole business could  be well done for $1,500J000 for a 36-foot roadway  and a 10-foot sidewalk overkanding. The expense  is a mere bagatelle for the city, seeing to what  extent they are spending money like water, paying out to and around the scattered real estate in  the distant suburbs.  That was rather an amusing suggestion to erect  a memorial column to Point Grey 1912 councillors. These gentry seem to need some-stern discipline and I note Avith pleasure the B. C. Empire-  League is after their scalps. The most effectual  way to get even now is for the B. C. League to  go before the Provincial Government every time  Point Grey wants some favors, and show .good  and sufficient cause as to why they should not bo  granted,  ���������o  Effort! Being Made to Prejudice Public Opinion���������Beware Fictitious Advertising���������Protect Public <  Domain. ��������� ������������������/'*��������� *  "The child of political iniquity" is perhaps the beat description of the Deadman's Island  scheme. This question has been before the public' ever since February, 1899, to a greater or.  lesser degree. Last year the Privy Council decided that the CITY'S claim to the Island was  technically unsound, which decision for the time being settles the dispute between the city and  those who are behind the alleged lease. ��������� '  Our object is to draw to the attention of the pubjic the facts as regards the original granting of the alleged lease by the late Minister of Militia of the Laurier administration.  ���������. - On the' 20th January, 1899, Joe Martin wrote to the Militia Department, on behalf of Ludgate, asking, for, the Island. In his .letter Mr. Martin stated that the City Council and citizens  were in. favor of'the projeet. This was known to be incorrect, because Ludgate had seen Jas.  Garden, the mayor, who had objected to anything^ the kind.  On February 3rd, 1899, Theo. Ludgate made application for a lease. This lease was issued  by the Minister within eleven days (February 14tb>>.| The Minister wrote the city about February  8th, asking their opinion, but before the council had received the letter the minister had granted  the lease.   :   .' >���������/ .y y x. . -.,-, . /;::^". -x,.-- y-  v   The minister also asked the chief commanding officerhis opinion, who (on February 8th)  replied, strongly opposing the granting of the lease.  The minister also wrote the admiral commanding at Esquimalt for his opinion, and in his  (the minister's) letter he said there was great heed for haste, which was rather an extraordinary  condition for a government official to find himself in.     v   ~ ;y  The lease was granted, as stated, within eleven days* of application, but TWO DAYS BEFORE THE ORDER-IN-COUNCn; AUTHORIZING IT WAS MADE. This again demonstrates  the anxiety of the parties interested to get throughwith the business.  As soon as the city authorities knew what was going on they held a meeting and dispatched  a delegation to'Ottawa to present a very strongly worded protest, but this was on March 9th, a  month after the application was made.   This is a remarkably short time to get word and to call  a council meeting and actually have a delegation in Ottawa' within a month,  BUT  not  swift  ! enough for the political tricksters who were back of the game.  When Joe Martin observed the terrific outburst of popular opinion against the government's  action in granting the lease, and its possible effect, he advised the government to so amend its  grant of Stanley Park to the city so as to make the Ludgate lease valid beyond question. This  request of Joe's is significant in two respects���������first, it demonstrates that in his (Martin's) opinion Deadman's Island belonged to the city at that time; second, it demonstrates that the representation in his letter of January 20th, that the city favored his application, was absolutely incorrect, and the natural conclusion is, if the minister was influenced by that statement then the  whole thing ia based on false representations and should not be recognized.  Such ia the early history of the "DEAL'V-one of the finest examples of political piracy ever  pulled oft* in this city. ��������� , y ,  But the same general course haa been followed, since. M*. Ludgate admitted in Ottawa last  winter that he had agreed with Col. Sam. Hughs* th* present Minister of Militia, that, pending a  settlement, he WOULD NOT CUT DOWN THE TREES, and that he would maintain the Island  as a park, if permitted to develop the waterfront. In any case it was definitely agreed'that the  tree's would not be cut. Col. Hughs had scarcely turned his back on Vancouver before this outfit,  Kinman, Ludgate, et al., cut down those magnificent trees and turned the picturesque little Island  into an-unsightly eyesore. This act waa absolutely unwarranted and was pure vandalism and  , spite work.. The object was to destroy the beauty of the Island in order to change public opinion, ajap to create evidence of possession. 'A more.;,reprehensible act cannot well be conceived; it  was inexcusaoie, and ohl^  behind this "DEAIj."   In our opinion, they have forfeited all right  to  consideration  at  the  hands of the public and should be shown none. ,, /  Another illustration of their methods was given in the publication recently of a plan, with  the statement that the Norton-Griffiths Company were interested;. This was PURE FACTION  generated deliberately by Kinman.    Norton-Griffiths were never identified with the scheme at all.  Kinman took the plans into Norton-Griffiths' office at 11 a.m. one morning, asking them to  "look them over." The Province was on the street in about two hours with a cut of the plans  published and a ''story." Norton-Griffiths did nothing, nor were ever connected with the scheme,  and just as soon as the "STORY" was published, Kinman came and took his plans away. The  whole thing was a ^clever advertising dodge and a subtle way to secure the use of the name of a  reliable firm like Norton-Griffiths to give an inr of respectability to it. And so the game goes on,  but Deadman's Island belongs to the public, and the public must and shall have it.  Epitome of Prof. J. Odium's Address  Delivered nt Anti-Home Rule Meeting, Dominion  mM������y7th.Wa,  H. H. Stevens. M. P., left last night for Ottawa to,  Icok after Vancouver's interests".  ThJt is an important problem that has come  before the Empire, once more in a concrete form.  All hoheat men are no doubt trying to find the  best solution. The two factions arrayed in antagonism most prominently and determinedly are  the Roman Catholics and the Protestant Imperialists. ���������  I shall confine myself to a few thoughts tonight  as there are two able speakers who are the shining  lights of the evening. I am here to open the  question rather than give a lengthy address.  And yet, though I am to play a secondary part,  I feel quite honored to be asked to say a little  on a subject so important and far-reaching.        \  The highest interests of the Empire are at  stake and in the balance as the conflict wages.  One party says we shall have Home Rule, and  the other says we will not. The first says it is  best, and the second says it is worst. We are here  to see just where our minds run in the study, and  to express our convictions in a concrete manner.  Personally I have no quarrel with the Irish  Home Rulers, or with the Canadian Irish Home  Rulers.    My antagonism to Home Rule, as it is  demanded, is based in part upon the following  reasons, or facts.  First :������������������The ablest and most astute Continentals  who are in deadly array against Imperial Britain  are strong advocates of Irish Home Rule. Any  man who follows the press comments of Europe  will see that in proportion to Continental antagonism and hate towards Britain, in that proportion Irish Home Rule is supported and advanced.  Hence when I find the strongest diplomats and  statesmen, who have the strings of statecraft at  their fingers' ends, urging and supporting the  Irish, I am sure that from an Imperial standpoint  Britain should refuse. If Germany and Austria  favor home-rule, then Britain would do well not  to give it until her whole people have had an  opportunity to speak on the question in the clearest terms. Borden saved Canada by*this method.  He carried Reciprocity to the people and thereby  to its death.  The Roman Catholic Stand.  Second: It is clear to all readers and students  of history that the Roman Catholic church is at  the bottom or top of this movement, demanding  Home Rule. In this connection we are forced,  from our- exact knowledge of the workings and  constitution of that political machine, to conclude  that since the Roman Catholic church demands  Home Rule, the demand, the command, the time,  the method, and all most intimately connected  therewith have origin at Rome. The Vatican in  fact has assumed to control the British House of  Commons and the destinies of the Empire. Hence,  since this is the most positive interference of an  Italian foreigner, one who has no official standing  or recognition in or by any country on earth in  relation to political affairs, hence, on this count I  would say to British statesmen, you are on most  dangerous grounds. Do not obey an Italian priest  or any number of priests or others who are simply  their tools. My strong point here is this: Foreigners have no business meddling with the internal  affairs of the Empire, and especially when they  undertake to do so as a matter of divine right and  superiority.  From the pope to the most obedient newspaper  of Roman Catholicism, there is the constant and  insistent announcement that the Vatican Rule is  supreme over and above every earthly rule. Every reading man here tonight knows that this is  a fact. And on this ground the pope, through his  cardinals, arch-bishops and priests, is demanding  Home Rule for Ireland.  The New York Catholic World says with authority: "The Roman Catholic is to wield his vote  for the purpose of securing Catholic ascendancy  in this country. All legislation must be governed  by the will of God, unerringly indicated by the  pope. Education must he controlled by the Catholic authorities; and under education, the opinions  of the individual, and the utterances of the press  are included. Many opinions are to be forbidden  by the secular arm. under the authority of the  church, even to war and bloodshed."  The Catholic Times. January 21st. 1910. say.s:  "As a matter of fact the Home Rule question is  a religious question. We have said this many a  time, and Ave repeat it now." This must be true,  for it is in perfect harmony with the affirmations  *%f popes, cardinals, councils, archbishops, priests  and the church as an official institution.  Hear Cardinal Manning in a thrilling speech  which he made in 1870, to the Third Provincial  Synod of Roman Catholic Priests at Westminster,  London, England:  "It is good for us to be here in England.

If you prevent 500 men from enliet-  ing, you do nearly as good work, if not so exciting, as if you shot 500 men on the field of battle;  and also you are making tbe path smoother -for  the approaching Conquest of England by Germany.

Is it Home Rule such as Ontario haa in relation  to Canada ? 1 answer, saying, It is not. If it were,  it would be very commendable under certain conditions which could not be supplied from the very  nature of those making the demand.  Is it the kind of Home Rule that each one of  tbe States in the United States has, and enjoys!  1 answer again and say, It ia not.  Is it the kind of Home Rule that Quebec  Province has, and is determined to keep until it  can make improvement from its own standpoint?  If this were the kind of Home Rule Ireland is  asking for, it would be bad enough, but it is not  this sort.  Is it the kind of Home Rule that Canada, Australia, and New Zealand have? It ia not. If it  were this sort, it would not be so bad. But even  this kind of Home Rule in the hands of the Irish,  dominated, led, directed, ordered, instructed and  inspired from a foreign potentate, would be a  most dangerous thing to Oreat Britain: for in this  ease there would he a strong and restless enemy  close at hand in times of international danger.  In such a case, Ireland would control her own  army and navy, as Canada and Australia are determined lo (lo now and in tiie future.

On one occasion,  says a resident, a huge piece of rock  was hurled into the air and crashed  through the Clarke Drive bridge aB if  the bridge had been built of paper,  and very few mothers who live ln  the neighborhood are tardy enough to  allow their children out of doors while  blasting operations are being carried  on.

Rain fell on six days;  frost was present on Ave mornings;  seven days were without sunshine.  The weather during the month'was  the best experienced since the con  test started. Brilliant sunshine was  reported on every day, excepting the  few dull days already enumerated.  Blasting is still carried on, and is  sufficiently heavy to Interfere very  seriously with hatching operations of  nearby,, residents/ Several have reported toBses of several sittings so  far owing to the explosions.  The month Just passed* together  with next month, are the periods generally recognized as those in which  the heaviest production occurs.. This  fact, together with the favorable climatic .conditions which prevailed, accounts for the very creditable records  made during the month. In class one,  pen 19 claims the distinction of being  the first pen In the contest to touch or  pass.the century mark. On one occasion 6 eggs were laid in one day,  and on six days 5 egga were laid dally,  and on six days 4 eggs were produced  during each twenty-four hours.  Otner pens deserving especial mention are pens 4 (96); 22 (95); 12 (95);  14 (94); 7 (92); 9 (90); 5 (89); 11  (89); 18 (86); 17 (83); 16 (82); 23  (8t).  The following pens produced 6 eggs  ln one day: 16, twice; 17, 1, 7, 9, 4,  once each.  In this month's standing Pen 19  goes up three places, pen' 5 displaces  pen 10 for fifth position, pen 12 moves  up two notches,'pen 18 ousts pen .6,  and pen 1 drops Ave places.  Pen 8 deserves special mention for  producing 75 eggs with only five pullets throughout the month.  The first case of broodlness among  Class One occurred during the month,  pen 10 furnishing a pullet.  In Class Two the pens producing  the largest number of eggs were: Pens  32 (102); 29 (90); 38 (87); 39 (87);  and 28 (77). Pen 40 managed to hold  sixth place, but by the appearance of  the pullets their performances during  the first three or four" months seems  to have completely exhausted their  laying powers. > The liBtless manner  iu which they move about indicates  lack of constitution and staying.power.  The following pens laid 6 eggs in  one day: 29, 32, 37 and 38. Broodlness was responsible for the following birds' removal from the pen during  the month: Pen 25 (3 birds); 29 (4);  30 (1); 31 (2); 35 (1); 36 (1); 37 (1);  39   (4).  All the runs were swept and litter  cleaned out during the month. Each  run was also partly dug up. Green  food in the shape of clo vefT chick-weed  and dandielion is supplied regularly,  and much relished by all the birds.  The fowls in Class One consume more  green food than the fowls in the heavy  class.  W. H. Stroyan, J. R. TERRY,  Superintendent. Secretary.  Humor and  Philosophy  ���������r 9VMCAM ft.

It is  Into]  the upper surface, frequently termed {  the water-table, of this ground-water  that wells are sunk for domestic and  other water supply.   It haa been **���������  timated that, If all'the moisture resident in the upper 100 feet of the  ground were    collected, the amount  would be the equivalent of a lake of  water some 17 feet deep. I. e., the  equivalent of about 7 years' rainfall  During periods or plant growth, this  ground-water- yields^ chiefly by capll  lary acttton, part of Its moisture to  the plants; and then, during seasons  of excessive rainfall, Is again replenished from the rainfall.   The annual  fluctuation  in  level  of the ground  water-table under normal conditions  Is .but a few inches.  The underground waters of Canada,  In some places, are now being tapped  and wasted. State after, state, ln the  United States, has enacted laws designed to conserve the underground  waters.���������From The Water-Pbwers of  Canada.

Broadway  Phone: Fair. 186  J  Ai .he recent meeting of the Westminster Road Improvement Association, the question of the improvement  of this thoroughfare and that of car-  line extensions came In for much discussion.  The municipal board of works were  severely criticized by President Black  for what he termed its delay ln carrying out the proposed Improvements on  Westminster Road. Thousands of dollars were being spent ln the improvement of the west 'end of the municipality, but tbe east end was unable to  get any work done at all.  Councillor Elliott stated ln reply  that the entire council was working to  have Westminster Road paved Immediately, and that when this highway  was finished River Road would be  dealt with.  A permit for the erection of stores,  with an apartment house over, at 866-.  70 Broadway East, to cost $11,000,  has been taken out by Mr. Peter Paul-  man. Work will be commenced at  once.

OWEN  X   2337 Main Street - Phone Fairmont 447 ������������������  A Day With the " Doones" and Black-  more.  All lovers of Blackmore who have  read "Lorna Doone," and who has  once read that romance that has not  been enthralled with the /glamour ot  the terrible doones, the beauty of the  fair Lorna and desired .to visit the  scenes of that famous story of Devonshire daring? "  Few, Indeed, who have read the  booh, but what have wished that they  might visit tbe "Doone Valley" and  view the scenes of the "girt Ian Ridds'  exploits,1 inspect "Baggary Water," see  the famous water gate, taste the Snow  prize butter, an dmaybe catch a  glimpse of the Snow girls a-dalrylng  amid.the Snow meadows, tbat produced the famous butter, so envied by  John's mother because it always fetched half-a-cent a p"ound more than her's  did.  It may be a surprise to Western  Call Lorna Dooners to know that old  Nicholas Snow is still allvje���������or was  when the writer visited tbe famous  valley.  The world is small at time, and It  once happened that, being in company  with a party of ladies on the outskirts  of London, they began to talk "Dem-  shtir," and the writer discovered that  one of them was a niece of the famous  old yeoman, the original of the Lorna  Doone Snow, who at the time was still  farming below "Baggery Water" ln the  parish of Oare, Devonshire,  A vow was there and then registered  that if ever the writer BUould find himself within twenty miles of Jan Rldds'  parich he would certainly visit and pay  his respects to Nicholas Snow.  The years rolled by with the promise unfulfilled, but not. forgotten. It  thus came about upon one bleak night  that I found myself on top of Her  Majesty's Mall between Barnstaple and  Lynton, Devon. - r  How 1 got there is another story of  bargaining and coaxing tbwards breaking the rules against carrying of passengers; but I must not give away these  things.

A far from encouraging reply was  vouchsafed  "I wish he'd never wrote It."  Myself: "But surely you feel fine  by being immortalized In it?" Only  brought the answer with rising heatr  "1 tell ye It's a passel o* lies, and  not wan word o' truth all dru It."  Myself: "Surely It must bring a  certain fame, and heaps of visitors?"

Upon the walk my Scotch companion  had been beguiling me with prowess  of horsemanship and daring with chase  and hound of his father's own Scotch  kennels.

I did not much  fancy a roll down Baggery steep sides  and kept asking Sandy   to take the  lead, but at length reaching the open  sward of the Doone'valley, which Is a  pleasant, fair green slope rising up  from the Water Gate for about three-  quarters of a mile, the ponies started  off at a gallop of their own.

Then, paying our reckoning at the  Inn, after a good breakfast, in which  Devon speckled trout^ Junket and Devonshire cream played a part, we sei  out.  The morning was dull and threatened rain, the path somewhat tortous,  winding along the banks of the bubbling Lynn, amid beautiful woody  glades until Watersmeet was reached.  Exploring the beauties of that famous spot consumed tome little time,  and so we rested upon a shingly bank  watching the swirling waters making  play of light and shade over mossy  rocks, then dying away Into quiet  dreamy pools with a murmuring cadence that made up a sight and sound  that lingered long ln our memory.  ���������At length, after another good stout  walk, we reached the Snow household  and there met in the flesh that fine  old yeoman himself.

One manufacturer says he has  sold over 4500 silos, and no doubt all  manufacturers have done a bigger business than ever before, says the National Stockman. The shortage of hay  has had a good deal to do with this,  of course, but aside from that the silo  has been steadily growing in favor for  years. There is at present a marked  tendency to utilise the silo for summer feeding.  The milk that passes through a separator Is equally as healthful as It was  before It passed through, except that  the removal of the butter fat obviously makes it less suited to the needs of  the calf. Bloat and scours are more  liable to be caused by skim milk than  by whole milk, as the former does not'  quite so fully agree with the digestive  organs. Separator skim milk from a  creamery should be pasteurized before  it is fed to either calves or pigs, as  the milk from the herdB of some of  the patrons may carry germs of tuberculosis. The milk Is no more dangerous ln this respect after passing  through the separator than before.���������  Inland Farmer.  The covered, barnyard Is rapidly  coming into favor, as a commodity to  the farmer and dairyman. Built Jn  any length and dimensions desired, In  having this the dairyman, and farmer  haa his cattle insured against all 'inclemency of the weather at all times.  Though left out in yard for exercise,  no matter what the season, the cattle  are under shelter. The manure also  is left In the best possible condition  and can be hauled out at any time  daring the winter when It Is proper  ��������� that It ahould be hauled out in the  fields, as U does not freeze under cover, which Is a great advantage in It*  self. The straw also Is utilised to the  vary bast advantage; Whether he  threshes from the barn or from the  field, the farmer has his straw deposited In the capacious mow of bis covered barnyard through doors opening  tm all sides. Dry straw, available ajt  all times. Is certainly a boon to any  farmer who has this advantage to his  credit..'  It is estimated that 3S.000.000 acres  of arid and aemt-arld   lands in the  United States can yet be reclaimed by  Irrigation and about 75,000,000 acres  of swamp land by drainage,   One hundred and ten million acres is an area  almosT as large as that of France,  which supports a population of 40,-  000,000, and of Germany, wbfch haa,a  * population of eo.ooo.ooo, and only little  lass than������the area of Austria-Hungary,  wltb a population of 47,000,000.   It is  equal t^ about one-eighth of the entire area now under cultivation In the  United States, and therefore without  a resort to Intensive farming, (which  Is. however, tha farming of_ the future), this country can support, without any tear of hunger or privation, a  very much larger population than we  are likely to see In our day.-���������Farm  Journal.  Do not sell those large, fine pullets  this fall. They are the winter layers. Get rid of tbe small backward  birds. True, tbey do not weigh as  much as, the others; but also, it Is  only too true���������the small ones will not  lay before March and April.  Comfortable shelter goes a long way  towards making dairying pay.' Tbe  stable should be fairly warm, entirely  dry. aa light as possible, and contain  dry bedding all the time. Plenty ot  bedding helps to save the manure, and  this is worth lots.  Since some of the characteristics of  the stalk and how the -ear hangs on  it are to be taken into consideration,  the seed may be selected from the  field with better results than when  taken from the crib when ready for]  planting. A box nailed to the front  end of the wagon into which every  likely looking ear, is thrown when  husking the corn, is a method practiced by many, but it is much better  to go through the field row by row,  selecting such ears as appear to-conform to the desired type. These ears  are husked at once and those which  have the desired size and shape of  grain are put away in a dry place,  where they may again be sorted over  when ready to shell ln the spring. In  selecting corn from the field, only  those ears should be picked which  grow at a reasonable position on-the  -stalk. Ears which grow too low or  too high should be discarded as should  likewise those having very long or  very short shanks.

Crop Rotation is Crop Co  operation.  Rotation includes crops that prepare  the land for the next crop.. In continuous grain-growing, weeds, insects;  and : plant, diseases are , encouraged.:  Wheat, not being a fighter like these;  gets the worst of the battle. "Letting  weeds grow in grain is like feeding a  hog and a lamb in the same trough."  ---J. H. Worst. :;:  2. Crop Rotation Keeps Up  ''���������\..::JF8^ii^.v'.-::-'---. :,;v:/;  Alfalfa and clover enrich the soil  In nitrogen and. humus.   Grasses add  humus.   Corn nukes plant food available.   Manure, la the best fertiliser.  V Crop Rotation Eradicates Wssds.  The cultivation 6?ve^ corn and potatoes kills weeds/ Alfalfa, grasses  and clover crowd out weeds and prevent their seeding.  The owner of an apple orchard In  Spokane has constructed an apparatus)]  with which he hopes to rid his orchard of ^be codling moth. He uses electric incandescent lamps, surrounded  by a metal netting, which is charged  with electricity. The moths, attracted  by the light, strike the wire and are  Instantly killed. The cost of the storage battery and lamps is comparatively small.  The apple crop of central Illinois  tfiis year is phenomenal. Trees are  heading under the burden of fruit and  a very large proportion of the crop  will never be harvested. Many prch-  ardiats, unable to get pickers, are turn-  ������iik tbe hogs in. While the product of  Illinois orchards has never been slow  la respect to flavor, there has seldom  been such an immense yield or such  unusual size. Not. only have the trees  produced more in most instances than  f-.'ae limbs .could support, but the size  has also been abnormal.  It is not practicable for every farm- j  er to follow the scientific methods of  plant breeding as practiced by many  of the growers of seed, but any farmer can select his own seed corn and j  (.hereby improve the quality and yield, j  4. Crop Rotation Eliminates T  Plant Diseases arid Insects.  Each plant disease lives on a certain  crop, dotation removes that crop for  a few years, so that the plant disease starves out. Insects likewise  prefer certain crops.  a.  Crop Rotation Saves Moifturs.  The cultivation given corn and potatoes saves moisture. The humus  added by alfalfa, grasses, clover and  manure increases tbe water-holding  capacity of the soil. The enriched  soil haa a more concentrated solution  of plant food, consequently the planta  need less water! to make a given  growth. -..';���������'- \y   ,���������  *.  Crop Rotation Decreases tha  Drifting of the Sell.  The humus added by the alfalfa,  grasses, clover and manure holds the  soil grains together. This prevents  drifting, Just as the bunch of shingles  will not blow, but when the band Is  cut the wind carries the shingles away  one by one..  7.   Crop Rotation with Live ttocK  the Most Profitable.  In feeding crops to stock the product  secured is worth from twice to several  times as, much 'as the crop. The capital, work and expense needed in feeding the crop is not as great as that  required ln producing It. From this  it is plain that tbe most profitable  part ot farming is stock-raising.  . 8. Crop Rotation Distributes Work.  In grain growing the work bunches.  This makes the labor -expensive, inefficient and har'd to secure. When  crops are rptated the work Is spread  over a longer season. v Competent help  is then more easily secured at reasonable prices.  9. Crop Rotation is Crop Insurance.  Rotation of crops brings Increased  returns and returns every year, favorable or unfavorable, and continuously through the year. In grain growing  the returns grow less and come only  at threshing time. Some years  threshing time never comes.  10. Crop Rotation's Better Returns.  Necessitate more manufacturing,  more transportation, more banking,  more merchandising, more professional work.  Keeps more boys and girls on the  farm, and  Brings better farming, better roads,  better homes, better living.  The products of the farm are the  foundation and measure of commerce,  industrv, prosperity and happy homes.  \  *  HORSE   LORE.

The harder and faster the  work a horse bas to do the more  nutritious, the stronger and  more liberal must be his food.  The colt when once baiter  broken should be gradually accustomed to tbe bit and in succession to all other parts of the  harness.  With horses it Is not so .orach  overwork, or scant keep as It is  the Irregularities to which tbe  animal Is subjected that cause  'the trouble.

English Brssd , Noted Per Hardinsss  and Freedom Prom Diiaass.  At the present time tbe Romney  Marsh, or Kentish sheep, as they are  commonly called, are comparatively  Uttle known In the United States.  There are. to be sure, some fine flocks  of-these splendid animals, but when  their excellent qualities become better  known the Writer believes their number will increase very rapidly, writes  EL K. Parkinson in Farm and Fireside.  With the object ot studying the good  and bad poirit8 of Romney Marsh  sheep.and with a view toward the  practicability of increasing our flocks  in the states the writer made recently  a most Interesting trip Into Kent county. England, which Is the native heath  of this breed and where every farmer;  as a matter of course, owns a flock of  these sheep.  A ewe seen yielded fourteen pounds  of greasy wool when ten months old,  and several stud rams were seen whose  average wool clip was seventeen and  one-half pounds of washed wool  (twenty-five pounds of greasy wool).    '  The hardiness of these Kentish sheep  may be realised from the fact that the  writer saw a flock of 100 ewes sum*  mering in a t;wenty-four acre pasture  which, . owing to a two months'  drought, was covered so thickly with  manure that it\was difficult to step in  any direction without stepping Into It,  and yet the sheep looked and felt Well  ted.

Tbe best specimens of Marsh Sheep  have deep bodies, heavy bones, very  good heads well covered,with .wool  and large, thick ears. The ewes lamb  about tbe 1st of February, and the  number of twins where the soil is fertile Is large.  In England, where sbeep are to be  seen on every bsud snd' are always  kept under tbe eye of tbe master, they  are very docile and essy to manage.  A boy of sixteen, wltb a dog. will keep  a large flock well In band while feeding on tbe wheat stubble or while driving tbem to market l  Those of us who sre Interested In Improving our flocks or Importing fresh  blood will, the writer believes, do well  to consider the Romney Marsh breed  before making any other choice. ;���������  Th* Hard Milking Cow,. .  It Is important when milking the entire herd to determine as to whether  they are all milking In a normal-condition or not A . hard milking cow  may create more disturbance and annoyance ln the management of a herd  than most anything else that might afflict them. If a cow or heifer be found  to be a bard milker she should be given  the proper treatment to overcome this  difficulty, which is a very simple treatment consisting of inserting a teat  ping into the hard milking teats once  or twice daily for a number of days.  This will soon expand tbe contracted  sphincter and permit the cow to milk  ln a nice, easy, normal condition, oftentimes Increasing the value of the animal, thas paying the owner for this  little extra trouble.

Late August i������ the time to watch  your valuable old shade and fruit trees.  Watch for the hollow trunk, the broken Itmh or tbe ex|Hised wound where  fungi may enter and ruin the stately  old friend. , ,*;.:  . From any wound remove all the decayed wood, wltb a chisel and adz. to  the sound, hard wood,' and smooth off  the edges of the cavity to allow the  free growth of tbe Inner bark.  After tbe cavity has been thoroughly  cleaned out disinfect it with corrosive  sublimate,, creosote or even paint  Creosote is better, as it penetrates farther into the wood. The cavity should  now be filled with concrete, one part  Portland cement to two parts sand.  Make it thin, so that It can be poured  In at the top of the opening. When  the cavity is large It is necessary to  re-enforce the concrete by,placing iron  bars across tbe inside. It Is also best  to drive large nails part way In around  tbe Inside, and this enables'the concrete to adhere better to tbe trunk.   .  As the filling shrinks considerably in  large cavities the walls should be first  coated with a thick layer of tar. This  expands and fills the shrinkage crack,  making the cavity air tight There is  now no chance for any disease to enter  and get in its work.  After,the filling has set a Uttle the  surface should be smoothed off even  with the Inner bark, ln a few years  the cambrium will completely cover  the filling, making a good looking tree.

Tours Is dead, ain't It? If they  want tb shcot the others, we can't stop  tern, blank them. Come," and Bolt  iWho by this time had his head near  old Al's heels, saw these draw quietly  way from him.  Imitating his companion, Rolt  qulraed on bis belly through the  bush which closed over him, so that  it was only with the utmost .'difficulty'  and half by Instinct that he. managed  *������ follow Al, of whose tortuous progress be could see but little, even  when he was within arm's length ot  him.  He knew that he was going down  bill, and that the ground under him  was growing softer and softer, until  at last he might almost as well have  been swimming, but he could see nothing.-  '������������������''.'  "We're all right new."

Now come, and we'll bat  them yet." and stooping aa he ran  the old frontiersman led hla companion along the creek bottom under the  shelter of Its banks, Into the heavy  plae timber. There they threw themselves on the ground, soaked to the  bone and panting heavily.  "What now? Are"*e going to fight  tbem here?" asked Rolt at last, s-ending up toilet some of the water drain  out of blm. .   '  "Fight Injuns In timber? Not much.  We're another five.minutes before  they'll miss us. but the light's cpming.  They're getting Impatient Hear  mat?" '������������������>���������-<'���������  "That" was another volley poured  Into the hollow.  "Hain't missed us yet. anyways.  Ate yoa good for another buret.  Boss?" ' *-'  "If We not too far." Rolt's running  days were over, and he was # .heavy  man, used to riding.  "No, tt ain't far," and the,old man  ������������gan to run again as If he bad been  re and twenty. Toms and the; other  Indian   loping   along   as easily as  wolves, whilst Dan the big-footed, sobbed wearily far behind.       -     ��������� ���������  At last on the extreme edge of tbe  K" ie belt, Arpaused. Beyond the tlm-  r the open country rolled down towards the Fraser and the dawn had  came.  "It'e our only chance and a slhn  one. It's got to be that cherry patch"  Al aald. pointing out to the open.  "There ain't another place ln sight as  would give us a show," and he set off  running again at top speed for a Uttle  four-cornered, patch of wild cherry  bush, about a thousand yards from  the timber.  It looked about as bad a place to  bold against an enemy as you could  Imagine, lying as It did In a hollow  and containing nd timber big enough  to serve as a shield sgainst rifle bullets; but tbere was nothing bettor In  sight, and It bad just one thing In Its  favor.  For seven or eight hundred yards at  leaat on one side, and for seven or  eight miles oil every other side, there  was no cover of any kind larger than  tbe thin bushes ot sage brush and the  patches of bunch grass. A coyote  might have crawled through that unseen. It, seemed impossible that anything else should.  Realizing that -at any^ moment their  enemies might reach the edge of the  timber, Rolt -and bis companions  raced over the space intervening between the pines and the cherry bush  at headlong speed. When Rolt crashed  Into tbe edge of the cherry patch he  had not another yard of running .power left in him. With a feeling tbat h  had not known since he had wen the  quarter at Rugby, he dropped where  he. was and lay still.  "Euchred them so far," panted Al.  cheerfully, "and now I guess well  take some killing. Out wltb your jack  knives, boys, and I'll show you a  trick as I learned of the Crees," and  he began to hack down the boughs  and young trees all round him, building with them a kino* of "wlcky up,"  or small circular bothy, such as Indians use for bath houses. Over the  top of this he threw IiIb blanket, which  he lied carried strapped to- bis back  until then, and over that again he  piled loose soil and soda, keeping a  nervous eye all the time on the edge  of tbe timber.  "Chuck your coat over your sticks if  you-haven't got a blanket," he said  to Rolt, "and_ then fix it this way,"  and be went down on his knees and  (  ._  .*> going to "bury a "bone.  Ait'the earth he took out he piled  upon the blanket, throwing with It  moss and leaves and small boughs, until when he had finished with It It  looked like a great ant heap Just sufficiently within the cover ot the brush  to save It from detection.   .  Then he lent Rolt a hand with his  mound, ordering the boys to do the  same at their respective corners, and  "8hove boys; shove like hell. If you  ever want to eat bull, beef any more.  They ain't here yet, but they can't be  long now."  . When men are working for their  lives It is marvellous how much can  be done in a minute, and these men,  knowing how much depended upon  their Speed, had their shelters finished, when a tow "hist".from Al sent  them all Into their holes like rabbits  into their borrows.     -  There was no sign of Indians that  Rolt could see, but as Al lay motionless he Imitated blm, and> for a full  fifteen minutes'sJnjost. held bis breath  to his burrow.   :���������������'.'  At the-end of that time he heard a  voice behind him, and turning, saw  Al lying at full/ Uftgth In the scrub,  calmly whittling a pipeful of tobacco.  "They can't see me here," be said.  "I'm too far back in the scrub. Have  you got your bury good and deep.  Keep a whittling of It out so as you  can lie low and the bullets'U go over  you. Savvy? I'm agoln' out now to  take a passear end see If them fortifications look natural." ���������  "Don't be such a fool," commanded,  the Boss.  / "I ain't no fool, Boss. No Ihji -;  ever hit a man at a thousand yards;  and I've got to know how our little  show will strike the gallery, likewise I'm anxious to know If we have  a full house," and so saying, he struck  a match and wandered out into the  open.....";  In the most unconcerned way in the  world the old fellow strolled along  straight towards the timber, smoking  as he went, and looking back occasionally St his handiwork, and for  about three hundred yards he went  unmolested,  i' '���������'���������" >.x  JThen/iav eboV waa fired, the dry  earth was kicked up a hundred yards  In front of him, end hla hat fell on  the ground whilst hla rifle went to bia  shoulder, and bis own shot was echo-  ed bj twojinore from the cherry patch,  under tbffpover of which tiny volley  he dwhed t*ek to his lair.  '���������All rlg^g-'ba aald. as be crawled  under bis mound, "the seats is all took  and the currtaln's up. It's just three  hundred yards to where l dropped my  cap. and now I'm goin' to put in time  dlggtn'. If I was you I'd do the sanm  It's goln' to be safer underground tbgo  up a tree by and by," and after that  for a long time the Boss saw no more  of A|.  v CHAPTER XX. .  The Chinook wind which bad been  blowing before midnight had dripped,  and In tbe last hours ot darkness had  been' succeeded by a crisp clear air  with more than a'suspicion of frost Id  It, so that when the dawn came, it  spread through skies of such rare  lucidity as are never seen except in  high northern lands. 0  Along, the horizon the light grew  gradually, until in the east the havens were of a pale lemon color, so  clear, so utterly fine and transparent;  that the gloom,ot the rigid barrier of  pines' hurt the eye wltb Its contrast of  stiff solidity. i  Even the pine belt itself was not  quite proof against the dawn. The  tops ot it were touched with a pale  glory and. though the gloom of the  black boughs swallowed up the light  that struck them, a bole here and  tbere was caught by It and brightened  with a wash of tenderest golden grey.  But tbe prairie welcomed the dawn,  which flooded its frost-touched sage  brush, so that It rolled in sheets of  sparkling silver, from the pines to the  cherry patch and away beyond as far  as the eye could see towards tbe still  shadowy bed of the Fraser.  The dawn hsd made all things plain,  had emphasised every outline: the  peace of it called attention to every  least sound which might break tbe  holy stillness of the waking day, and  yet Rolt, listening in his burrow, could  not bear so much as the breaking of  a twig, or see s sign of life in the  direction from which he had fled.  Most of the events to which we look  forwsrd In life (snd probably in  death), either with desire or dread,  are curiously unlike our forecasts of  them. A battle upon either a large or  small. scale is no exception to this  rule. Men laugh In the crisis of a life  and death struggle, and in the last  South African war a volunteer,, told  off as one of the escort of a big gun,  remembers only of Splon Kop that it  was fought on a "jolly" day, that the  weather and the smooth grass slop ;s  suggested pink parasols and picnic  hampers; that there were funny  little balloon-like puffs rising at intervals from the ridge opposite to that  on which he lay; that the sun was  warm and comforting, and that some  confounded fellow woke him up with  the toe of a ..service boot when"'the  battle waB over and it was time to  take the gun home.  It was with Rolt as it was with  that yeoman.  After Al's departure he worked  feverishly at the making of his burrow, expecting every moment to hear  the hum of bullets through the- scrub  over head, but no bullets came, and  at last, even with his jack knife, he  had managed to scrape out a hollow  ample enough to contain his body.  . Then he lar In lit and watched, until the minutes grew into an hour, and  tbe dawn into young day, without any       sign of life showing itself upon the  be"gan"to'sc������teh *ttkhla knlfojlke  ajiidscape, except ������ coyote, shadowy  ra cog who ���������>'.*"'""* ���������  and utterly noiseless, who came  stealing down from the hills, until  he was nearly midway between the  pines and the cherry patch.  There he checked sharply, his nose  went up and his brush dropped, and  wheeling ln hiB tracks, he went back  at a lope to the nearest rising ground,  on which he stood awhile reconnoitring. ,  Something in the country displeased  blm, for after a prolonged survey he  loped back the way he had come.  The coyote's behavior was" suggestive ot suspicion, but a little broad-  winged hawk which poised in the  clear air or swung noiselessly overhead with a keen eye ^ for mice or  beetles, contradicted the habitually  suspicious vagabond. I'������������������'->���������..:  Rolt found it Impossible to remain  strung up to concert pitch for ever to  such an atmosphere ot peaceful  beauty, just as the half alarmed buck  does, when pitted against the everlasting patience of his hunter, and  was actually dosing when a voice behind him asked:  "Have you* got your Holland along  with you to-day, Boss?'*  Bolt started, but though only halt  awake., hsd sense-enough to He still. /  ~ "Yes," he said, without turning.  "It's good for long shooting, ain't  it?" ���������  '"It's sighted for five/hundred  yards."  "I guess that's good enough. Do  you see that yallerlsh looking bunch  of sage brush, the biggest in sight,  away, there to the right? Jest perforate H. will you?" -  Rolt raised bis rifle, and looked  questlonlngly at old. Al, whosje head  was now along-side his, own.  The old man noddeH, and Rolt adjusting his sights to the five hundred  yards range,- cuddled down' on his  rifle. J- .'.\----x;  "fclgb or low?" he asked.  "I gueee it's most solid near the bottom," chuckled AI.       - -  Then Rolt drew a long breath, for a  moment there was absolute silence;  and then a Uttle puff of dust fifty  yards beyond the sage brush, recorded the fact that the foresight had be: n '  taken too full. A few sprigs of the  yellow weed fell,' but otherwise there .  was no sign from, tbe bush.  "Sits stillsr. nor a fool hen," commented Al. "Try her lower BtlH,  Boss."  ' Rolt took the' same bead again, but  this time he took It upon the very  base of his target. .At his second shot  the bush which he had watched for an  hour became alive. A horrid scream  followed the Impact of his bullet and  ln place of the Uttle fountain of gild-  en dust, a man's body sprang high into  the air and then'pitched headlong on  the near side of tne bush writhing and  tying itself Into,knots amongst the  branches of the withered rage-brush.  "Must be quite a holler ther; a'most  as good aa thia one of ourn. 1 seed  htm earning from the time he started.  Holy smoke!"  Al's ejaculation was the result of a  perfect blizzard of bullets which suddenly borat upon the cherry patch,  cutting the feeble brush Into ribbons  and tatters and making the defenders  crouch in tbelr lairs like frightened  rabblte. ���������.."���������������������������..- ,  "Fire a good many shote tor fifteen  Injuns," growled Al. "Mker fifty.  It's the hull Cbllcoten tribe, Wank  'em," and then rising recklessly to his  knees, he roared.'Turn It loose, boya.  Don't let the, 'beggars' get away." and  he emptied the jMsgssine of his repeater with a rlntdity which would  have done credit to. a machine, gun. '  Five minutes earlier the Boss had  tired of watching the motionless sage  brush over which the hawk had swung  and from which that coyote had retreated so promptly, and now whilst  the rifles rattled and tbe smell of  powder tainted the air, there were a  doseo wild figures dashing from it  for the pine belt..  Only two of tbemvfell, and one of  these got, to his feet again and was  hauled Into cover by his fellows.  "Blanked bad shobtln'. Say. Ross,  that shot of yours turned on the bull  bloomln' orchestra. How many did  you git?" <  ."I'm afraid I did not touch one of  them."  "Guess /you're better at sitters.  Didn't you spot any of 'em before I  told you to shoot at that brush? Lord!  I've been watching that fellow over  there for nigh on *to an hour. It's  lucky as I didn't wait for bim to come  in range of my old shootin' Iron."  "Why, what difference would It  have made?"  "All the difference between living  and dying. They'd have rushed us ln  another ten minutes, and shooting as  we did, they" would have got in. But  I reckon they won't try that game  any more for awhile."  Rolt    sincerely   hoped    that    they  would not, or that if they did old Al's j  eyes would keep watch for them,   1c '  his own eyes he bad lost all confl ,'  dence. 1  For a long time silence fell again !  between the pistes and the cherry ���������  trees. There was no sound, but for I  the crack of an occasional twig as one '  of the defenders moved uneasily in  bis narrow shelter; no movement ex- i  cept from tbat twisted figure by the  sage bniBb.  It was a long time before that became quite still, and Rolt was thankful when that time came. j  Before the attempted rush the sage '  brush hsd been equally still, and the !  memory of that fact so worried Rolt \  that he now Megan to Imagine enemies j  In the most ridiculous grass patches. {  He was beginning to lose his sense of J  proportion and imagination magnified  the most absurd trifles.  It was a relief when a single shot  broke the strain of long waiting. The  bullet dropped about a couple of hundred yards from the cherry patch and  rlcochetted through the highest  branches of It. There was a slight  pause and then a second shot from !  the same spot in tbe timber, the bullet dropping this time a hundred ya'rds  nearer -Al's screen.  "Jest so," muttered Al. who had  again crawled to Rolt's side, "and the  next will -be nearer, still. They are  getting our range now. Had ought to  have done that the first (go off. I  guess there'll be no room here for two  now. Lie low, boys, it's goin' to >storm  again," snd he crawled back to his  own position just as it began again to  hail bullets.  For a good quarter of an hour the  Indians in the timber kept up a steady  stream  of  independent  firing,  as   if  they would fill up that little hollow  with lead or reap the thin cover in It  with their concentrated firer but  though their bullets cut down the  standing brush as'if it had been slash-  oould fire again, as his fellow-creature  collapsed ln a heap and lay still.  ilea fighting for their lives have no  sentiment, and' perhaps Al never bad  much at any time.   The sight of Wood  ed, riddled it, and left it ln flying tat- ,had ������>������Bed all his fighting Instincts,  -         .������____ - .      **��������� ���������       onrl   f*A*> tKa tMAm^nt   ka  ������rea   aa   ������v-������n1rstasia  tens, the men under ground remained  untouched. Neither did they attempt  to reply.  "Don't stir, boys, and don't shoot  back." commanded Al. When they  think they're-killed every insect in  this bloomin' brush patch, they'll  maybe try some other racket. Then  we'll get our work In."  \        CHAPTER XXI.  The Indians were very thorough In  their work of destruction, and thanks  to the looting of Rolt's , store-house  they had plenty' of ammunition to  spare, but at last even they were satisfied. , '  The cherry patch looked like a field  after.- a Manltoban hail storm, and  there could have been little doubt In  the Chllcoten's minds that anything,  that had sheltered In it was as dead  as Julius Caesar. But being Indians  tbe elected to run no.risks. When  the firing ceased a sound of chopping began, and' Rolt who should have  known better. Imagined that the coldblooded brutes were" going to* teed before picking up their blrdst but he  misjudged tbem. An Indian Is sufficiently cold-blooded, but not on the  hunting trail; or tine war path. Then  he thinks a great deal less of his belly  than does a white man under similar  circumstances.  Before long 'a great tree crashed  down, and before the sound of its fall  had died away, they saw the top of  another lean slowly oyer, hang for a  moment, and, then _ disappear In a  spray of shattered boughs and pine  neediest  Three fell in all, and SU1L the chopping went on. Then for the first time  Rolt noticed what looked like a great  saw. log just outside the line of the  pine trees, lying parallel with thai  line, and as he noticed it two'more  came to Join It.  There was no doubt that they came;  he saw them emerge slowly, like, some  footless monsters, moving sideways  down the hill. ������. ���������,!��������� '������������������-;������������������  Ah, here they come! They're get-  tin' dawn to business at last. That's  ihore-like Cree flgbtin'l I wouldn't  have thought tbat they knowed so  much." muttered Al.  But at first Rolt, who'had not Al's  experience, did hot understand, and  the sight, of those three great pine;  logs creeping down abreast, apparent-'  ly by their own volition, "was> very  horrible. r ,,    -.  From time to time a rifle tpft redly  from the timber, but tor {b^ Wet part  the slow progress of the ma* down  the sloping prairto waa" mine In absolute silence. The, - sun. ~ creeping  across the heavens seemed to move  fastoT than they did. ��������� ' ,  "We've got to get them .other two  over this side.'-' said Al. ' "We can't  stop them." pointing to the logs, "and  when they get here there'll be a blanked hot time in the cherry pat:h."  "Can we spare them? Won't the  Indians sneak round from behind?"  "Not Jlkely, and If they do we've  got to jfifcr#>:'-l guess theylbwipe us  out fbfs-time," with which cheering  remark he crept *way, returning with  Toma.   .:"- ���������  . "I've left the other galloot where  he wm," be explained. /"He ain't any  account as a rifle shot, but he's so  plum scared that he'll make a.pretty  smart looking m������n. Hulloh! What's  got that log?"  The centre log bad reached the spot  where ATs hat lay, and as it pas:ed  over it,, possibly one of tbe hands  which propelled the log reached for  the derelict "Stetson" which bad been  the old, man's pride. At the same time  the slope ot tbe prairie Increased suddenly, and this particular log had been  trimmed too fine. By nature it bad  grown absolutely round, It was a white  pine and young, andjherefore smooth  and heavy, and the men who had���������  trimmed rt bad taken all theiimbs*oft  close to the trunk.  The result was that though it had  crawled as slowly as Its companions  up to this point, as soon as it felt the  sharper incline it.began to turn over  more freely, each revolution giving  additional impetus, until it was obviously rolling.  Already it was twenty feet ahead of  Its companions, and then for a moment a brown hand showed shove it.  Al's rlfhf came to his shoulder, but he  was too slow; the-hand disappeared  before he could press the trigger.  "Look out. Rolt." he cried. "Th*y  caln't hold It! itv got away wi:h  them! If they cain't stop it, they're  our meat, sure." and he eto d up r. ck-  Icssly to get a better chance with hia  rifle.  Faster and faster came the log, and  again a hand showed, and this time an  arm and shoulder with it. aud the old  roan fired, but the arm, broken at 'h������  wrist, had fallen behind the log. before bis bullet chipped the bark of it.  "Bully for you. Rolt. I take it all  back about them sitters." But Rolt  did not even smile. His lips were  thin now and .set, and his eyes were  glued to that log, whilst he held his  rifle as men hold tbelr guns at the  pigeon traps at Hurlingham. '  If the.covering party in the timber  had been able to hit a haystack at  seven hundred yards, the fate of Al  and Rolt would have been sealed, for  In the excitement of the moment both  men stood up, every thought intent  upon their pray, utterly regardless of  the leaden bees which hummed harmlessly past them.  And then the expected happened.  Four men however desperate cannot  hold a green pine tree from behind  when it1begins to roll, and realizing  this, one of the Indians let go and  bolted back towards the timber. He  fell with Rolt's' bullet between his  shoulders and Al's through his thigh  before he had gone a dozen paces.  The others held on for one more  breathing sr.ace, and then the log  broke clean away from them, rolling i  merrily down the hill, whilst three  miserable devils writhed in the sage  brush in the vain hopo of hiding from  the white men's ��������� withering volley.  One wretch ran perhaps for fifty,  yards with an arm swinging help"es=--  ly from his sripulder as he ran, ar d  they saw him wince and stumble as a  second bullet touched him.  "Outer to me, Boss," shouted AI.  pumping up another cartridge, ''bull to  you." he added, regretfully, before he  TO~fae* ts* iftrwr  dar.  Ho bad hardly  fierce white face.   Tha aajrA  eTMettttauk  ....     *;tsj  seemed to rise up aad ttrifea tan- im  and for the moment he was aa reckless  as he was pitiless.  "Oh shoot; and be blanked!" he  cried, as halt a doxen bullets hummed past him. "It's our turn now.  Pull them other traps, caln't you."  But the other traps were not pulled.  Whilst tbe centre log was betraying  Its masters, the two outside logs bad  come to a standstill, and so, In spite ot  Al's glbfcs and th������ bullets with which  he made-chips of them fly. they remained, great, black bars on the  prairie, three hundred yards from th-.*  cherry patch, whilst the November  sun crawled down towards the hort  son. Suddenly it dipped into a lo*  lying bar of cloud and the light failed  ao suddenly that Al noticed xlt.  "We've got to hurry. Boss," he ������a!d  sinking Into' his place by Rolt's side,  and ebaking a spray of blood oft his  hand where a bullet bad skinned It,  "We caln't Itt them fellows stay ther*  after dsBrk."    ",��������� ������ / '':  "What are we going to' do to pre'  vent It?   We have lost our horees."  'That's so; but If we stay here well  be roasted as soon as it's too dark to  shoot.

ODLUM'S ADDRESS  (Continued, from Page 1)  t  Britain has the assurance of the aid of most loyal  friends, yea, of loving daughters.  But the Irish do not want this, and though As-  quit h may give them something of this sort, the  Irish leaders tell him and the whole world they  are after something quite different.  Then what do the Irish Home Rulers ask? They  are determined to have just such Home Rule as  Japan, Germany and the United States have in  relation to Great Britain. They are simply demanding to be a separate and independent kingdom, or republic. This is to be determined at a  later date by the will of their masters in Italy and  Germany. Berlin and Rome would direct Dublin.  The Educational Standard.  I would oppose Home Rule aa it is asked because  the Education of Ireland would go into the hands  of a foreigner who is not too favorable to modern,  common school education.       y.-.,-  The Roman Catholic Irish are behind the Protestant Irish today in their educational standing.  But this is not strange for in all Roman Catholic  countries Education has bad very Uttle practical  advancement.  l-ook at the Following Table of Comparison.  Of those who might read in the following countries here are the facts as nearly as I,have been  able to get them to hand. The percentage of those  who cannot read is here given:  Japan in 1905, 5.07 per cent; Canada, 1901, 14  per cent; Quebec, 1901, 20 per c nt; Italy, 1901,  56 per cent; Portugal, 1900, 70.6 per cent; Brazil,  80 per cent.  v" This--.is a terrible showing. Now if Ireland  lapsed into the helplessness of the teaching as  afforded in Peru, Chili, Mexico, Brazil, Paraguay,  Uruguay, Columbia^ Portugal, Spain, Italy and  other Roman Catholic lands, then our fellow Irish  citizens, Protestant and Roman Catholic alike,  would gradually drop into the ranks of the average teaching, so manifest by the order sent out  from the' Vatican and his masters. Thus, then,  from this, point, I feel strongly Opposed to the  attempt at Home Rule.as the Irish are demanding.  Again there is another count to be placed  against this proposition: The Irish have no business to have 40 members or any other number in  the British HouseT of Commons to aid in dictating  to the British people in England, Wales and Scot-  ' land how they shall or shall not act in purely home  matters^ If Ireland is to be practically free, then  let her Irish members retire, from the British  House of Commons, and her 28 peers from the  House of bords.  ���������     - ' "   THE PEATH OF THE NOTEP  WRITER, AGNES D-CAMERON.

Prohibition of Any But Recognized  Banners.  Last week an ordinance was passed  by the Seattle council forbidding flags  other than recognized by the U. S government to be used. This ordinance  regulates the size o fthe flag (the  Stars and Stripes) which must lead all  parades. Banners and emblems of organizations if carried must assume a  secondary place and must bear letters  showing what organizations they 'represent. This law is the outcome of the  parade on May Day of the Socialists  and I. W. W. Would not a similar ordinance be a benefit to Vancouver?  "The New North,"  ot Dceams."

It is estimated that the new1 works will raise  the annual profits to $250,000. The  total sales of products recovered from  sewage last year amounted to $500,*  000. Besides the grease a market has  been found for the pressed cake wbicb  remains after the grease has been extracted and large quantities of this  have been exported to be used as fertilizers In France^ South America and  other foreign countries. During the  coal strike a number of local factories  used the cakes as fuel. At present  Bradford is the only city In the kingdom which derives a profit from its  sewage. Tbe works are the result of  ten years' experiment by City Sewage  Engineer Garfield. When the new  works are completed over one hundred  presses will be extracting grease from  the city sewage.  Vancouver may profit by the enterprise and experience of Bradford. Why.  waste, where economy, ingenuity and  scientific knowledge can turn the apparently worthless into useful articles  and money.
