 iiillflir"  ������/���������  .  Published in the interests of Vancouver and the Western People  I  VOLUME III  H. H. Stevens, M.P., EDiTOR-in-Chief  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, MAY 3, 1912.  No. 62  NOTES OF THE WEST  f ************************** *********************** i ***** ************************  i  I  {Contributed by W. D.)  It would be well for the Board of Trade to form  an outside auxiliary Merchants' Commission to  assist in handling what Vice-Chairman'Scott called a "most serious matter, and one the Board pro-  poses to stay on the job with until it is finished.".  That will be good news to many a rate-harassed  trader. I heard of one the other day who had to  pay $24 for a ear of sand hauling 13 miles.  ''Going some," eh?  The dry rot from the C. P. R. Winnipeg office  must.be put an end to in the public's and company's interest on Western lines'or more valuable  vacancies will soon want filling.  The B. C. Empire League should be really more  careful with their propaganda and not frighten to  death men whose non-Imperial scalps should  $i\dangle from their belts. I refer to young "Mas- Jj  ter Launcelot Roosevelt," the seven-months-old  transportation love child of Home Payne himself.  I am told it was a personal New York after dinner appointment, and it has proved not a very ,  happy one at that.  The only transportation Mr. Roosevelt has succeeded in raising to a very high pitch are "transports of joy" that the old tried and true men  will be again in the saddle.  Now, let the company give them a fair chance,  and if they are not above taking a suggestion,  they will add automobile patrol service to the  transportation and despatching system. Signals  and telephones are all very well, but these have '  neither brains nor eyes'. What is wanted to grasp  the growing needs of Vancouver's enormous traffic is a road .observation service outside the car  service���������to note the traffic delays and their causes.  Chief Engineer Conway, being a keen observer,  might give that despatching department a few tips  as to how to do once and for all.  Dear, dear me. I had no idea Mr. Mawson, the  landscape artist, was such a close reader of the  " Western Call;'��������� furthermore that he would ever -  gor and write the ideas set out in this journal  That Hagenback Zoo idea, for example, was one  recommended to the Park Commissioners, in these  columns, on March 16th, for Stanley Park;;; It  was then said, "What is wanted is an open-air  Zoo like the Hagenback one in Berlin���������Hamburg  should have been written.  Mr. Mawson's whole report is worth, much care-  jut tiuMght^aTO THave m doubt ^n^uvet will  readily adopt many of his schemes as time goes by.  Peep sympathy towards Aid. Crowe on the loss  of his beloved wife and eomrade. May the Great  Healer send him solace in his trial  South Vancouver School Board has had rather  troublous times of late by the resignation of two  of its members, and but for Secretary Kirkland's  cool head and good work Ave would have suffered  serious business discolation. Mr. Kirkland has  evidently saved the day and now Trustee Vogel's  timely resignation is a fact, the affairs of the  Board would go forward, smoothly and well, with  a determination to do the square thing and the  very best for the children's and ratepayers' interests.  So the eat is out of the President's tbag and  Uncle Sam got the fur and claw's only. "Adjunct" we were to be, eh? I would like to hang,  draw and crucify that word across the brow of  every Grit in the land. Long has the view been  held in some minds that Laurier was doped and  duped and delivered, bound hand and foot, at  the White House.  Exactly who was at the bottom of this deep  conspiracy, it is hard to say, but 13. G. Macdonald  was only the eatspaw���������the real deadly feline was  a far bigger thing than so slight a man as Macdonald has proven.  I dare venture that the Knights of Columbia  know more about this dark plot than will ever be  unveiled.  They are the most dangerous, deadl secret society in Canada, if not in the world. We will  keep an eye on them in future.  LOSS AND COMPENSATION  Infinite wisdom and power has so arranged and continues to control this world as a small part  of the universe that all events, including accidents resulting in loss, have their compensation. This  law applied to the wreck of the Titanic, and the appalling destruction of human life and property  will require a compensation commensurate with the loss. Judging from the present outlook, the  gain will be in improved protection to passengers on ocean liners. Today every ocean voyager  takes great risk because of inadequate life-saving equipment in the perils of the deep, such as  storms, collisions, explosions, fire, rocks, icebergs,'etc. ���������  The littleness of man compared with the gigantic proportions of Nature, become more evident as human knowledge increases. '      ���������     ���������     {  Nature, God's handiwork, is mightier iri forfee and majesty and immobility than man. There  are elements which cannot be conquered. There are natural situations in which man is as helpless.  as a worm.   All he can do is die. , i  The horror of a shipwreck is that every victim goes!, consciously to his doom. Reason for the  moment may be whelmed or overthrown, yet there remain the sinking into the wave, the struggle  for breath, the farewell to life, the suffocation, the blotting out of enlivened memory, the end of all  O the terror of it! Who now will.go to sea in ships? Puny man with all his boasted skill  can neither, foresee 'every danger nor guard securely against it. He may expend ten millions of  dollars, in the building of his one boat, fit it up like a royal palace., attract patronage from the rich  arid wise and powerful and famous of earth, but he caniiot make absolutely certain the safety of  his chosen path across the deep. ; i  Two miles below the surface of the wreck-strewn Atlantic the Titanic sleeps. No human eye  will ever again gaze upon her. Her beauty of form, her /might' of hulk, her. power of speed, her  wealth of finish, avail nothing. She sleeps! Crushed and broken and helpless and silent and hidden forever.   The Titanic sleeps! f ��������� .. (  Should the Titanic disaster, heart-rending as it was and is, result in bringing man as it were  to his senses, teaching him anew that humanity is. punyy life a gift that must be surrendered, the  earth but a tiny speck of the vast universe, the sea but a drop in the hollow of God's hand, thought  but an emanation of infinite mind, and that soon all of hs, like generations that have passed, must  render up our account, it will have accomplished a great end in its place among human events.  The strife for size and speed and luxury in ship-building is likely now, since the Titanic disaster, to yield place for a time at least to the paramount question of safety in crossing the mighty  deep. '���������';>.������������������:' '���������������������������-��������� '  It is of less consequence whether a man crosses the ocean as a prince in five days than whether  he crosses as a live creature at all. \  So long as life is helo!*p>eciou8 the average voyager; would rather take more time and land  safely than to plunge ahead recklessly, and then plunge to the bottom forever.  It is possible that the limit has nearly been reached in the scientific construction of ocean ships  for rapid travel, but attention should now be paid.to devices for security of life.; ;;v^'   ;  More lifeboats are needed on the average liner itshe is ^venture voutid^^  arrange the schedules so that the boats on different, lines; can steam off together in fleets or convoys, keeping w;ithin reachable distance of each Other, and perhaps preeej^ by a scouting ship to  warn of iceberg and other dangers.

In this particular  Vernon stands as high as any other place of .qual  size in the Province, her hotels in all particulars  being good ones. The average traveler requires  the best of service, and in at least one of the  hotels of Vernon this service has reached to a  marked degree of comfort, elegance and style in  hotel keeping. This is Hotel Kalamalka, which  is centrally located in the very best business section of the city. The furnishings are of the most  comfortable obtainable and are designed as much  for comfort as for beauty and exquisite luxury.  The lobby is large, light, and the substantial leather cushioned chairs and appointments tend to the  comfort and convenience of guests.   The dining  phone in. each room, hot and cold water, electric  light, and nothing is left undone by Mr* McAuley,  the enterprising and progressive manager, to  make Hotel Kalamalka the travelers' mecca. This  house is the just pride of Vernon and the Okana-  gan Valley, and it merits unstinted praise. Mr.  McAuley has had wide experience in the art of  catering to the public, and has made a scientific  study of it, bringing keen intelligence, tact and  discretion combined with executive capacity and  energy to bear in his dealings. He has the happy  faculty of handling to its perfect satisfaction the  drummer and tourist trade, and considerable town  custom as well, and he is an important figure in  the hotel trade in this country.   There is probably  ���������UtoK"*'** ������3<.������!  Y,r ������.!   ������  The Titantic enquiry as conducted by Senator  Smith is giving rise to tense resentment and  American non-judicial methods of examination  are coming in for sharp comment on both sides  of the Atlantic. Until this painful process of making New York Press copy comes to an end and the  British Admiralty take hold of the enquiry,  very little illumination will be thrown on the  matter. I was glad to note the manly letter of  Capt. Copp and others standing up for the honor  of the cloth. Even poor old Ismay���������most unfortunate of all living beings���������is finding some defenders of his behavior. On the other hand Major  Penhcon becomes'a very poor "pinchbeck" hero  indeed. It would be good for the Toronto command if his name could be perpetually lost sight  of.  The Grim Reaper has been busy again in C. P.  R. circles and the  sudden removal of General  Supt. Oborne at   the   very   beginning   of   what  -j promised   to   be   a   brilliant   Western   railway  p. career, is a sad blow both to the company and  the public at large.  His early history shows him to have been a  man of remarkable tenacity of purpose and good  brains.  Now. good brains and more of them is what  tthe C. P. R. sadly lacks on Western lines as  worked from the Winnipeg engineering side at all  events. The company are blundering and stumbling along in a tortuous, uneven gait unworthy  of a great company and their own ultimate interests.  These are days when even railway emperors  room with the walls artistically colored in bluish  tint is testefirily and elegantly furnished, and the  more than ordinary good looking waitresses are  prettily uniformed to match, while the table would  suit the most fastidious epicure. The best markets  are ransacked to place before the guests the most  tempting dainties and the finest viands. Nothing  is too good to be placed before the guests and the  service is an par with the sumptuousness of the  table. Every traveling man who stops here is loud  in his praise of Hotel Kalamalka. The house caters to the best class of the traveling public and is  headquarters for commercial men, tourists, etc.,  visiting the Okanagan Valley.    There is a tele-  no occupation that requires more tact or a greater  knowledge of human nature than this does, but  Mr. McAuley is eminently well adapted for it in  every case. He is to be congratulated on his  well drilled force from chef to housekeeper, and  everything runs like clockwork. Mr. McAuley  during his residence in Vernon has won the confidence, and esteem of his fellow townspeople. He  is progressive from the word "go," and besides  having large intersts here, he has valuable holdings adjoining Vancouver, the metropolitan city  of the west. The above cut shows Hotel Kalaraal-  ki, Vernon's leading first class hotel, and mecca  for the "Knight of the Grip" and tourist.  It is about time for-the Dominion Oovernment  to look carefully into the exact condition of the  . lumber trade of this province. And aa surely  as it takes a comprehensive and a detailed survey of the facts, and all the conditions, so surelv  will it feel the need of coming to the relief of this  exceedingly important industry.  No man need tell the public, or the legislators  .either at Ottawa or Victoria, that one of the most  important industries of British Columbia, and for  that matter of Canada, is that of lumber, in all its  branches. Not long ago the Dominion Government  would have -put on a protective charge against  the vast quantities of aheap waste lumber sent into  Canada from'the States, were it not for the selfishness of the prairie farmer.  Let us hurriedly look into one of the chief facts *  bearing on this matter.  The saw mills of the Pacific coast in tbe States  have a population of scores of millions to serve  in their own country.   Most of their .customers  require high grades of lumber.   As a matter of  fact, about seventy per cent of the lumber out by  the United States mills is of high grade and this is  sold at home.   About thirty per cent is rough, a  low grade quality, and cannot be sold within,the  country.   Hence there is a vast amount of cheap.  unsaleable lumber that lies in the mill yard*; amu  is of no real value, only so far as they <Uri%'jget.,''  out of the road by shipphtg to the CttBp$Jjp',  ���������ties where low grades will sell readily.' ���������-t^ VV/;  The Yankee lumbermen have to .ba^anee. bs^  tween selling their low grade surplus to OfekSitt ������*  cut-rate prices, or burning.it as wsaW-;'  every dollar for which they sell it *C  saved.   This means that the British 1��������� w,  lumbermen cannot compete with the iniUsirttith.  Besides there is another phase of this matter bat-  legislators should examine into and know. It is  this The farther our lumbermen are forced to go  eastward, in the province, to establish mills and  cut lumber, the greater the p^c^c^gd ot, %#  grade lumber. All mill men and students of our  economic conditions know that tiie trees in the  mountains eastward furnish a much poorer quality of lumber than the mountains at the coast.  Hence it follows that largely this poor grade of  lumber is the staple, and normal trade material  of the British Columbia interior millmen, while  this very kind of lumber is the waste, the refuse of  the American mills. Thus our B. C. lumbermen  are faced with a competition that is ruinous, and  which must shortly put many of them out of business.  When this time comes, as come it will, then the  United States lumbermen will have the Canadian  prairie farmer by the throat, and up will go the  prices of what is now the waste or refuse, which  they would rather sell at $5.00 a thousand than  let rot in their yards. In fact what they sell for,  however low the price, is practically all gain.  They must get it out of the road, so as to annually  make room to cut and ship the high class lumber  which represents about seventy per cent of their  cutting.  How much better it would be to put on a protective charge and save our own mills from destruction, I mean the mills above referred to, and -at  the same time protect for the near future; our  Canadian prairie farmers.  The trouble with our prairie farmers is that  common to almost all farmers. They fail to see  that what hurts the factory men will in the end  hurt them. And they seem to stand for free importation of all stuffs they use, so as to get a temporary gain, forgetting, or not seeing, that the  less is sure to come quickly, when our home factory competition is crushed out, and the foreigner  is enabled to rush up the prices at full liberty.  Here is room for the Borden Government to  do something of national worth.  Salvation is not rescue from an externa! peril,  but cure from an internal condition.���������S. E. Eastman.  Happiness is neither within us nor without us-  it is the union of ourselves with God.���������Blaise  Pascal.  cannot afford to flout the public and to start,  Nero-like.'a fiddling whilst their Rome is burning by which I signify whilst other and younger  rivals are storming their once inviolate capital  of monopoly. Already the outworks are down  and the long entrenched tariff of high rates that  are in many eases an outrage upon common honesty and a menace to our Western progress and  a bar to our civilization, are slated for removal.  Some rates are little short of open, downright  highway robbery, and a long-suffering but a well-  remembering generation are after the C. P. R.  official scalps as sure as ever they were born.  I therefore take it as a partientary unfortunate and unhappy thing for the company that  Chief Assistant Engineer .Sullivan of Winnipeg  should have turned down his Vancouver's executive advices over the awarding of several Western contracts. Take the case of a recent roundhouse award which is being boosted by the real  estate boomers as a $50,000 contract. I -will do a  little estimating for my reader's benefit. Twelve-  stall roundhouses appear on the company's own  appropriation as $3,000 per stall proposition.  That is for the modern 90-foot No. 2 engine house.  Twelve stalls at $-3,000 each , $36,000  A boiler engine house of brick and concrete will cost     8,000  A new turn table pit without steel turn  table is worth     4,000  Total cost  $48,000  Of this work at the very least the company pro-,  vides $4,000 worth of steel beams, etc.. which the  contractor has to handle, so that at $50,000 as pet-  real estate ads., would be an even break, but what  if I tell the public that this much crimpled vaunted roundhouse which "will be built   in   a half  circle" (vide daily press) has been let by Engineer Sullivan for less than half of $50,000. So  far as my information goes, the amount is just  over $24,000. which is an absurdly dishonest  price for the company to accept. Either  Engineer Sullivan has something up his  sleeve or he has a most eold blooded way  of tapping a sucker for $10,000. In "the  interests of his company." no sir, not by a long  way. but to their everlasting discomfort* if but  dishonor in doing business on those "slick American lines." Mr. Sullivan, I believe, is a Yankee  bred and born, but whether or no he is showing  a lamentable Jack of Strains in accepting sueh bids  for his company of the (.'. P.

THE OKANAGAN VALLEY is located in tbe interior of British Columbia, extending southward about one  hundred and fifty miles from Sica-  raous Junction, on the main line of the  C. P. R., to the International boundary  line. The valley has a varying width  of from a couple of miles to eight  mllea and Is wonderfully adapted, specially for fruit and vegetable growing,  and poultry and dairying. It is a land  of fruit and 'sunshine, and but for  many unscrupulous land sharks and  government parasites, hogging thousands of acres, the valley is without  uestlon a garden spot of the Province.  It 1* to be hoped the Single Tax ays*  tef will be put In vogue there soon  and compel those to disgorge, referred  to the same as Lloyd George is now  doing in England. There is much  complaint of the maladministration of  B. C. land laws in Victoria, that haa  been going on for years. It 1b high-  time to call a halt  The climate is superb, and the business men are up-to-the-mark and a*  progressive as found elsewhere, anywhere.  Enderby Is the llrst city south from  the main line of the C. P. R. on the  Okanagan valley, being 23 miles from  Slcamous Junction. The town has a  population of about 800 people, and  the business of the town 1* handled  by two large storeB, two first-class hotels, the Union and Bank of Montreal,  two butcher shops supply meat*, while  there are two restaurants, a first rate  livery stable and other small shops.  Tht town of Enderby. has a flour mill  with a daily capacity of 50'! barrels,  and a sawmill with a yearly output of  about 60,000,000 feet. The valley at  this section is about four miles wide,  opening into the Mabel Lake Valley,  which is a very fertile tract of land.  Armstrong is the next town south,  being nine miles distant from Enderby, and down here you will find that  the land cIobb to town is low and of a  very black loam, very suitable for the  growing of vegetables and particularly  celery, which they grow great quantities of. The lands out from the town  are all bench, and are suitable for  fruit-growing. These lands are all  taken up and under cultivation. The  town ot Armstrong has two hotels,  four stores, while other smaller shops  help to do the trade of tbe town.  Vernon is 15 miles south of Armstrong and 46 miles from Sicamous  Junction. Vernon is the principal and  largest city in the Okanagan valley,  and has the Court House and Government buildings, several large departmental stores. Five hotels accommodate the travelling public. The famous Coldstream Ranch Is four miles  south-east of Vernon, being one ot the  largest and best fruit ranches in British Columbia. Vernon is surrounded  by three lakeB���������Swan Lake, Long  Lake, (this being the lake used by  campers and pleasure seekers), Okanagan Lake ��������� to the south, on which  lake the steamer Okanagan plies daily  to the southern towns of the Okanagan Valley.  Kelowna is the next town south, and  I* Bltuated on the east side of Okanagan Lake. Frof train at Okanagan  landing you change to boat, which is  the only way of passage farther south.  Kelowna is a very pretty town, having a park on the shores of the lake,  and right near the docks as you land  from the boat. Kelowna has three hotels and a goodly number ot stores to  do the business of the town and the  surrounding district, which is highly  cultivated and has a great afount of  fruit  From Kelowna we go by boat to  Summerland. Summerland is built up  on the bench, about 150 feet above the  level of the lake. There is a quantity  of fruit grown in thiB section, which  is mostly side hill, each row of trees  being terraced out from the hill. Summerland has a fruit exchange and several town buildings.  Penticton is below Summerland  again, a distance of some 15 miles,  being at the south end of the Okanagan Lake. Penticton is more stony  and sandy than the other towns of the  valley, but is a good fruit "district, all  lands are fully irrigated. Penticton  boast* of one of the finest stores in  the Okanagan valley, which does a  large share of the business in that  south section.  All the towns south ot and inclusive  ot Vernon are irrigated lands, it being  found absolutely necessary. North of  Vernon, irrigation Is not necessary, as  the rainfall and snowfall is more  bountiful in this district.  Kelowna  J. p.

' Admiral Farragut tells this story of  his boyhood:  "When I was ten years old I was  with my father on board a man-of-war.  I had some qualities which-1 thought  made a man of me. I could swear like  an old salt, could drink as stiff a glass  of grog as if I had doubled Gape Horn,  and could smoke like a locomotive. I  was great at cards and fond of gambling in every shape. At the close of  dinner one day my father turned everybody out of the cabin, locked the  door ,and said to me: "David what do  you mean to be?'  " 'I mean to follow the sea.'  "'Follow the sea!' Yes to be a  poor miserable, drunken sailor before  the mast. Be kicked and cuffed about  the world, and die in some fever hospital in a foreign land! No, David;  no ' boy every trod the quarterdeck  with such principles as you exhibit.  You'll have to change your whole  course of life, if you ever become a  man.'  "My father left me, and went on  deck. I was stunned by the rebuke,  and overwhelmed with mortification.  'A poor, miserable, drunken sailor before the mast. Be kicked and cuffed  about the world and die in some fever  hospital. That is to be my fate,' I  thought. 'I'll change my life, and  change "it at once. I"U never utter  another oath; I will never drink another drop of intoxicating liquor! I  will never gamble.'  I have kept these three vows ever  since. Shortly after I had made them  I became a Christian. That act was  the turning-point in my destiny."  The Okanagan Valley  (Penticton, Continued from Page 2)  "They say she. looked daggers at  him?"

O, to be in England now that April's  there, may be rather a trite saying,  but will never quite lost its sweetness  as long as time is.  it is now 25 years almost to tbe day  that the writer took the jaunt upon  which this sketch will deal.  A misty grey morn broke snllenly  over the vale of Evesham tbat 23rd  day of April, upon which the pilgrimage to Shakespeare's birth town that"  I am about to relate, took place, but  time has not withered nor memory  staled the glory and enjoyment of that  trip.     ,  Arriving in the quaint old town the  visitor naturally first seeks breakfast  at the nearest Inn���������for, let me warn  you, that he who would visit Shakespeare's town must bave Time for bis  friend and companion���������and like Ben  Johnson, must "saunter" through���������or  half of the enjoyment and spirit of the"  place will be missed.  Shakespeare's house, the first place  of call, is one of a pair of fine old half  timbered cottages, which in their day  were no doubt considered a worthy addition to the old town and called "New  Place." Entering the street door one  comes into the quaint ball or "house  place," as it was called in Shakespeare's day. Here is a fine picture of  the Bard of Avon, painted from contemporary miniature sketches, showing him with the pointed cavalier  beard, the face high-browed serene,  the eyes steel blue, yet kindly, looking  down, gazes with a touch of majestic  sweetness upon the beholder.  All over the low-beamed ceiling, on  the walls, and even diamond graved  upon the glass, are scores and thousands of names of tourists and others  who have recorded their names, date  of their .visit,.upon them.  The house Is now well cared for by  the Mayor corporation and a charge  of 6d admission goes towards its upkeep and guarding the house and Ita  relics, which too ardent American admirers would carry oft piecemeal if  it were possible.  A short distance from the house. In  the centre of four cross roads, stands  a very fine memorial erected and  given to the town by Mr. Geo. Cbiilds,  of Philadelphia. It is in the form of a  handsome clock tower surrounded by-  four statuary groups, representing  Asia, America, India and Europe.  Mythical groups, symbolical of each,  adorn these blocks and are finely  modelled and carved. The tower it*  self has four long lancet windows,  lead-glased, showing the swing of the  ponderous clock and on a has relief  panel. this Inscription: "In ber days  " every man shall eat in safety what  "he plants, and sing the merry songs  ",' of peace to all his neighbors. God  "shall be truly known. And those  " about ber-���������from her shall learn the  " perfect ways of honor.  And by them  judge their greatness.  Not by blood.  Tbe memorial is a very fine addition to the town's artistic side. Now  we approach the sacred fane, in which  tbe asbes of tbe great Bird is laid.  Strattord-on-Avon Church would be  a notable and Interesting building at  any time, for. its own quaint old world  14th-century architecture ��������� its carved  pews and oak roofs���������its tracened time-  mellow stone windows and Its ardles  many times buttressed walls, crowned  by its graceful tapering spire, but being, so to speak, Shakespeare's shrine,  as well gives it at once an overpower  Ing interest.  Reading from tbe open glass-cased  in register of baptisms we -see  Shakespeare's birth entry April 23rd,  1563 Proceeding to the chancel en-  sconed high up on Its south wall is  the tomb of William Shakespeare, a  half-length bust of himself, tricked out  in sober colors, with a gray goose  quill In band. In the act of writing,  stands the monument to tbe divine  William.  it looks most life-like.  Summerland  "The inscription ends ��������� ��������� ,#  " with whoam uick nature did ye deck  "thetombe."  Then the Latin motto or epitaph, beginning "Judicio Pyllum Genlo Socra*  " tes.

"Shakespeare, with whom quick  "Nature did ye deeked the tomb."  Near by in a mural tomb lies the  body of the old money-lender, John a*  Coombs, of whom It is reported tbat  after many inducements to the divine  William this epitaph was written of  the ten-percenter:  "Ten In the hundred  Lies here engraved.  It's a hundred to ten  His soul is not saved.  If any man ask Who lies in the tomb?  Oh, ho. quoth the Devil, It's my John  O.

Mount Pleasant is steadily and surely becoming  the heart of the city. Main thoroughfares are being graded and paved in  all directions from this center, and  unlike many weBtern townships, the  best roads of Mount Pleasant are not  those which lead from it, but those  which lead to it. No part of Greater  Vancouver is progressing at a more  rapid rate than is Mount Pleasant.  New buildings, both residential and  for business purposes, are going up  in all directions; civic and other improvements are being carried on as  quickly as possible, and the merchants  and other residents of this promising  neighborhood have it within their  power to make their district the most  prosperous part of Greater Vancouver.  Merchants should lay themselves out  to get and retain the interest and  patronage of the people, and householders should realize that to deal  locally is to raise the value of their  own property by making the neighborhood a more prosperous one.  Sophia street is being graded from  Westminster Road to Sixteenth avenue.  Mount Pleasant boasts some of the  best business houses of any part of  the city. This is proved by the fact  that some of the merchants draw a  large percentage of their patronage  from outside points.  ward into ten separate districts. Each  of these districts will have a chairman  and an individual organization, which  in tUrn will send delegations to the  parent ward association.  In New York, Chicago and other  large cities the prices of meat have  been soaring away above the reach  of many working people during the  past week, but, strange to say, this  will make but little difference to prices  at the Sanitary Market, 2513 Main  street.

A simple timber fram- f  ing with studs sixteen inches apart on  which the boards are nailed and the  joints covered with four inch battens  bedded in elastic weatherproof cement  will make a structure sufficiently durable to last for years, and which can  be readily taken to pieces and transported when necessary.  There Is no need for bricks, mortar  or plaster. Asbestos boards being fire  proof can be used as material for a  flue, if it is necessary to have a fireplace inside. In the hands of a carpenter or a handy man, a few hundred  dollars will put up a smart little bungalow, while less will build a useful  shack or hut more weatherproof and  comfortable than made of timber  alone and quite as cheap.  This material is used extensively  in Germany and elsewhere on the European Continent for the erection or  chalets, also such buildings as Schools,  Barracks, Isolation Hospitals, Shooting lodges, etc., as being safe, more  sanitary and economical than any other-that can be used; besides having  the advantages of rapid erection and  easy removal.

Montreal, May 3.���������The law and not  the physician may yet become the  final factor here in deciding whether  or not an illness or disease is curable  as tbe result of a unique situation  which, if carried tb its logical conclusion, may fake it necessary for an  aiking person in search of a cure to  consult a statute book instead of a  doctor. This strange state of affairs  has been brought about as the result  of an extradition writ issued by a  neighboring town to compel a practitioner of | this city to stand trial on  the charge of receiving money under  false pretenses. Tbe facts in the case  show that one of the city's beBt-known  physicians who has been profinently  identified with a number of its medical institutions, rendered a bill for  $12 for his treatment for the disease  known as hydrocepnalus, or water on  tbe brain, of a boy in Como. The doctor says physicians now recognize that  this disease is in some cases curable  by medical treatment, while the indictment says that it is ncurable except by surgery. As the doctor in  question did not attempt the latter  method, the charge of obtaining money  under false pretenses is made. Should  the town win its case a curious situation would arise under which it might  be called upon to codify all diseases  with the proper treatment for each,  for physicians might be slow to undertake treatment if such an act, through  conflict with the views oi the authorities, might lead to indictment and  punishment. A legal code of all diseases and their proper treatfents  would undoubtedly be a remarkable  work, and the picture of the authorities prescribing castor oil for juvenile  stomachache is no less wonderful than  would he the predicament of a physician who, at a critical moment, happened to have misplaced his code  hook.

ORCHARD  INTER-CROPS.  (P. E. French,  B.S.A:, Assistant  Horticulturist.)  The growing ot crops between orchard trees until they reach productive  age is one of importance not only to  the individual fruit grower, but to the  economic stability of the fruit industry as a whole. A few years ago a lack  of knowledge as to the successful marketing of these inter-crops, such as  small fruits and vegetables, together  with a wave of enthusiasm for absolutely clean cultivation of orchards,  'iiscouraged this practice. There has  recently been a change in both respects. A great increase in the available market, and ��������� the discovery that  carload production was an essential  to success with main-crop vegetables,  together with experimental proof that  careful men cculd grow inter-crops  witti financial success and without injury to the trees, have materially altered the situation.  There are, however, certain requisites to success. The soil must be  deep, in good physical condition,  fertile, and be possessed of adequate  moisture. A soil in condition to support only the growth of the trees  cannot carry both trees and intercrop without injury to the former. A  first step is to get the soil in proper  condition by the use of cover-crops or  barnyard manure.  The climate must also be suitable.  Wealthy Apples thrive, and attain  the best results in districts where tomatoes and corn can be grown successfully. Early vegetables are successful only where they can be produced  in time for their market. Some non-  irrigated districts are so dry in the  summer time that many inter-crops requiring a large amount of moisture  suffer or fail. These points all require  local study.  The third important requisite to  success, and perhaps the most  important, is the market. Co-operative marketing is almost essential in  getting a new district under way.  Carload production as - mentioned  above, Is often most desirable. Given  a careful study of the entire situation, success is reasonably assured.  There is usually a living to be made  from the land while the treeB are  . coming into bearing age. Many crops  which will bring good returns can be  grown between the rows of trees,  while tbey are young, but It should  always be remembered that the young  trees are of first importance, and upon their present health and vigor depends tbe future usefulness of tbe orchard.  Inter-cropping of young orchards  is generally discouraged for the reason that tbe trees are likely to be  neglected or misused and the soil depleted of plant food and moisture. It  Js by injudicious cropping, however,  . (hat young orchards are often most  seriously Injured. Extra care should  be taken to maintain tbe fertility of  Die soil by tbe application of manure  nnd fertilizers.  The growing of light crops is a  means of keeping tbe land stirred  when it might otherwise be neglected,  and if t|������e grower is careful to see  that the physical condition of the  land 18 improved, and adds enough  plant fond to supply tbe lost? the  light cropping of orchards for the first  few years may be a decided benefit  The. danger is that the fruit grower  might continue too long and expect  too much from it. When the orchard  comes into hearing, give it the entire  land.  In orchards set less than twenty-  five feet apart the land should rarely  he cropped more than three years,  but apple orchards set thirty feet or  more, may be lightly cropped four  or fire years if extra good care is  takes.  In  Irrigated  sections  there   is   a  vegetables that can be grown at a  profit. The kind of crop grown will  depend also largely on the type of  soil and the location of the .orchard.'  Grain or hay should never be  grown in the orchard. "' They are  especially objectionable because they  do not permit the cultivation of  the soil nor shade it sufficiently to  keep it from baking. Of course, such  crops as wheat, rye, oats, clover, etc.,  may be grown late in the season as  cover crops to plow under, but if  grown for grain or hay it is too hard  to preserve the moisture and the physical condition of the soil is not  improved. A hoed crop is much  more desirable. The growing of  nursery stock in young orchards  should be discouraged. This crop  makeB the same demands upon the  soil as the orchard itself, and it does  not allow the variations in cultivation  and management which are possible  when different crops are grown. Nursery stock is known to be particularly hard on land, so much so that  nurserymen seldom grow two crops  of nursery stock in succession on the  same area. y  Potatoes may be mentioned as a  crop well adapted to grow in young  orchards. It is a staple commodity  and is often shipped across the continent, but in order to do this the  community must produce a sufficient  quantity to ship in carload lots. If  early potatoes are grown, a cover  crop of rye or wheat, or sometimes  clover, may be planted after the  potatoes are harvested. Potatoes  thrive best on the light or medium  soils, but occasionally heavier soils are  found that are adapted to the crop.  Potatoes require the cultivation of the  soil in the spring and early part of  the summer, and consequently are  among the best to grow ln the orchard.  Early corn, onions, carrots, beets,  etc., are good crops to grow as  inter-crops in the young orchard, because they all require good cultivation and generally tempt the manager  to liberal fertilizing.  In fruit districts where canning factories are being built, such crops  as tomatoes, corn and beans may be  grown, as it is often difficult for tbe  factories to get a sufficient supply of  these crops.  When clovers or vetches are grown  it 1b well to leave a good wide  strip on each side of the trees for  cultivation, especially where irrigation  is not available, so that the trees  will not suffer from lack of moisture.  One crop can then be taken off, and  the second crop allowed to grow.to  plow under next spring. This sup  plleB nitrogen and adds humus to the  soil. Small fruits are often grown  as inter-crops and sometimes with  very good results. Bush fruits should  never be planted within nine feet  from the row of trees, and the ground  needs extra good cultivation. There  is always a danger of leaving bush  fruits too long in the orchard. In  irrigated., sections, strawberries are  sometimes grown with good results.  Tbere Is not tbe danger of over-watering this crop that tbere is in the  case of the bush fruits, as the strawberry season is over quite early.  Young orchards should never be left  in sod. Sod lands are not only  drier than cultivated ground, but they  are favourite . breeding places ot  insects. Mice often harbour, in sod  lands, and they often do considerable  damage to young trees.  Tbere are a few cases where sod  may he grown In old orchards, but  It is tbe exception rather than tho  rule. In such a case as a very steep  hillside, where there was plenty of  moisture available, It might be an  advantage to leave the orchard in  sod. However, nothing should be  taken off the ground. Tbe grass  should be cut and left on the ground  We are often asked if it pays  |to grow inter-crops in   the   bearing  VERNON  (Continued from page 1)  W. C. POUND. The rapid growth  and development of the Okanagan Valley and the Vernon section in particular is amply shown in the establishment here of Mr. W. G.

He    makes    the  mounting of deer heads a specialty  and has an extra large, classy Polar  bear rug and musk ox and wolverine  robes for sale. He does quite a mail  order* business and all orders receive  prompt attention and we will here  state that outsiders receive just exactly what their orders call for and at  prices that challenge competition witti  concerns living in big cities that have  to charge their patrons usually two or  three prices to help pay for-their enormous rent. Mr. Pound also carries a fine'stock of gloves and fancy  ladies' furs and burnt leather work.  He was born in Ontario and is a  prominent member of'the A. O. U. W.  and W. O.

S. paper, showing the conditions of ice cream manufacture in  New York:  Following the lead set by other  eastern cities in a war against impure  and doped foods, particularly milk, ice  cream and other products, an investigation into conditions in this city has  been started, and the few tests made  of certain articles show frightful results.  Among twenty-fire samples of cheap  ice cream purchased in Manhattan at  as many different manufactories,  Hochctadter & Riley, analytical^ chemists, have discovered, in twenty-three  coli bacilli ranging from 50,000 to 4,-  000,000 per cubic centimeter. About  a quarter of a teaspoonful Is a cubic  centimeter.  Not one of the samples came up to  the government standard, which requires tbat ice cream shall contain 14  per cent, of butter fats. Two or three  of the samples showed as. high as 7  per cent., the balance betweeu'2 and  3 per cent.  These ice creams are made of dried  milk, condensed milk or .skim milk.  None of them are made of cream, aB  would be necessary to come up lo the  government specifications. The> are  thickened with glue and starch.  The glue, by courtesy, is called gelatin, but little of the product thus  named would come up to the standard  necessary to distinguish it from common glue.

However, this need not be If  extra good care Is taken to replace  the plant food and humus which is  lost by tbe growing of crops. It  must always be remembered tbat  where crops are growing between tbe  trees, tbey are taking food material  out of the soil, and tbat It is necessary to fertilize the ground well ln  the meantime, so that the soil will  not be in an impoverished condition  when tbe trees begin to bear.  NEW POLICE SQUAD.  THE PROGRESS OF THE WIST.  tendency to over-Irrigate If there are'orchard.     There   Is   no   doubt   but  interferons. This, of course, Is detrimental to tbe trees. Quite often  It makes the trees grow late in tbe  fall and tbey are sent into the winter  in a soft and unrlpened condition.  When inter-crops are grown an open  ���������trip, free from crops, should be left  oa each side of the row of trees.  Tbe width of this strip will vary  somewhat according to tbe kind of  crop grown. For an ordinary hoe  crop, the space free of crops should  be about four feet on each side of  the row of trees the first year, and  this area should be widened each year  as the treeB grow older. This  tihould be kept cultivated regularly  throughout the growing season. The  roots of a tree generally spread farther from the trunk than do the  branches, so tbat in no case should  crops be grown within a foot and one-  half of tbe line below the outside of  I lie branches. The drier the land the  less it should be cropped unless irrigation  water is available.  CROP TO GROW. Only annual  crops should be grown in fruit  Iiiantations. In general, some low-  growing crop which demands good  Ullage and comes off early is best.  Almost any vegetable crop may be  grown, but with all such crops the  (iuestion of markets should be care-  fully considered before planting any  large area. In any section there  is  always   something in   the  way  of  tbat It does not pay. One cannot  expect to get two crops of produce  from the same ground. The roots  of the bearing trees require all the  ground for the best development of  tbe tree and fruit. The only crop tbat  should be grown in a bearing orchard  is a cover crop to plow under.  The writer does not advocate  cropping the young orchard in all  cases. Where a grower has sufficient  capital to carry him over until the  fruit trees are bearing, It may be  better not to take anything off the  ground. He has a much better chance  to enrich the ground by plowing  under leguminous crops, as clover,  etc., when the trees are young than  when they are large and bearing. It  is sometimes hard to get a good  catch when the trees are large and  shade the ground. If one is in such  a position, he should be able to  have the ground in a better condition  when the trees are old enough to  bear fruit than the man who is  obliged to grow inter-crops. However, we are not all able to do this  and we must be governed largely by j  our circumstances.  Taking the situation as a whole,  it would seem that the opportunities  for the small fruit grower are encour-l DubijSh.?  aging, not only to make n living, but  an income as well, while his orchard  is coining into bearing age.

Roland, Industrial Commissioner of this city, has Issued a comprehensive statement concerning the  progress of tbe West, In which he  says:  Tbe Immigration movement into  Western Canada has advanced very  rapidly in the past* five years. In  1907, 262,469 persons came In from all  sources. The next year, 146,908  came; ln 1909, 28,794; in 1910,  311,094, and in 1911 the figures show  350,420 settlers, all of whom have  come with the avowed intention of  taking up their permanent residence  with UB.  The wealth of Western Canada's  partially developed natural resources  is yet untold. With only 10 per cent,  of the vast stretches of fertile land  under crop, with lumber and mineral  resources merely surface touched,  with millions of acres of free land and  other millions of acres of cheap land,  Western Canada is bound to have first  place among the countries of the  world as a place in which people may  come and settle and make for themselves a home and business equal to  their ability, capacity and capital invested.  "Cops de luxe," a variety hitherto  unknown, capable either of chasing  crooks or furnishing exhaustive Information to feminine bargain hunters,  and calculated to make the ordinary  policeman turn green with envy, are  soon to grace St Catherine street, according to tbe plans of merchants  whose establishments line both sides  of tbat famous thoroughfare. For  some time complaints nave been common- that the famous street has become a favorite bunting ground for  all sorts of panhandlers. Accordingly  merchants now propose to Introduce  guardians ot their own. Imposing physical and sartorial requirements wbicb  will make them the observed of all observers. As a start it is planned to  put eight men on duty ln tbe business  section. Two of them will be plainclothes men In a technical sense at  least, though whether they will be  clothed ln frock coats and silk hats Is  not yet announced. The other six,  however, will be uniformed in gorgeous style, resembling somewhat the  London "bobby," and somewhat the  Prussian grenadier. Each member of  the new ultra exclusive force will be  of herculean build and clad according  to present suggestions in a blue uniform with crimson or gold facings.  Not only will they be expected to detect and banish all crooks, but to be  walking encyclopedias of tbe knowledge dear to- the feminine Bhopper.  Altogether their advent will set a new  standard in the police service not only  for Montreal, but the whole country  as well.

For wbat seemed to him five of the  longest minutes he had ever known,  the water crushed him against that  rock tooth, whilst his arm was recked  with the pain of keeping his fingers  crooked in that bundle of wet clothing,  which swayed with tbe current, but  which he had not strength to drag  back.  He could hold on to it, he would go  with It rather than let go, but be could  Hot find the strength needed tb draw  it to his own place of safety.  Jim felt his body slipping away from  the roek which sheltered him.   Gently,  Insistently, like an angler who puts all  'he strain he dare upon a lightly-hook-  d fish, the waters drew him from his  old, and thenVhere came 6ne of those  range chuckling sounds which water  akes amongst the boulders.  In his light-headed condition it was  *lo Combe the laugh of ar devil who  wins, and it touched some spring in  his nature, of which for the moment he  had lost control, the strength came  back to his muscles, and with a last  desperate effort he drew Protheroe to  him; dragged him somehow to the  river's brim, and dropped him tbere,  where the waters lapped over the firsc  boulders of the dryland.  For a long pauBe tbere was silence,  but for the ravings of the river,  baulked of its prey, and the little wind,  which wined like a wolf amongst the  sage brush along the cliff's edge.  Utterly spent, the two men lay  where they had fallen, as did the pin jo.  Only the roan stood upright, and even  his strong knees were bent, bis head  hung, and his whole body waa shaken  with shivering fits.  Combe was the first to recover.  Dragging himself to his feet, he went  over to the doctor's horse.  ��������� "You've got to get up, old fellow." b ���������  said, "or you'll die on our hands, and  we can't spare you yet,"- but the poor  beast lay with head stretched along  the ground and took no notice of him.  It had made up Its mind to die.  "Can you help. Doc?" Jim'asked, but  tbe doctor shook his head, and lay  still, nor was it until nearly an hdur  later tbat Combe contrived to get bis  companion and the two horses up to  tbe top of the cliffs, upon which he  built a roaring fire, not only for the  sake of comfort, but as a sign to any  whom it might concern that they had  survived the river crossing.  "And now, Doc, I guess you might as  well get along towards the ferry.  There'll maybe be someone there still,  unless they've all given us up for dead.  You will haye had about enough for  one while, 1 expect."  "What! Give up the run when l'v������  Jumped the big brook? Not much.  Jim."  "Then you mean coming on?"  "I started to get there, and I'm going  to get there with both feet, my son.  aa you would say In your picturesque  fashion."  Jim pulled at his pipe in silence for  gome time, then in a shamefaced way  be said:  "I owe you an apology, Doctor."  "For abduction? Yes, I believe that  there is some trivial penalty attached  to that form of amusement."  "No; not a blanked bit for that.  You'd have done the same only I didn't  know it. It's just for not knowing you;  I'm sorry. I ought to have known you  were a man."  "I was drunk. Anything Is good  enough for a drunk."  "There ain't another roan in Caribou would have risked his life as you  did, drunk or sober."  The doctor laughed.  "You did for one, snd that Is life  anyway. Do you think that th? less  of it would be such a terrible ^a'amity?  Think of It! No more whiskey���������bad  whiskey at that; no more graceful  badinage with the coy Kate Canyon:  no more delicate Jests with that fat  headed bar keeper; no more memory  perhaps.

"We shall have to walk, at first ;><  any rate."  "It can't be helped.   I suppose u :  we can get some feed for the hci--  at Braithwaite's."  "Yes, if we start now w? shouit-  there by sun-up." and lighting th  pipes, the two led their horses awi  towards the west.  ,.  CHAi i i-.it a v 1.  After Jim Combe's departure a  jstrange quiet fell upon the life of the  ranch. There were no galloping  fhorseB about the corral; there was no  inoisy cowbow chaff about the barns.  JThe one thing necessary was tbat  Frank Anstruther should be kept quiet.

"Them's baby tricks," she quoted  under her breath, and a proud smile  spread over her face as she thought of  the man who drove the great red devil  into the heart of the storm to do her  bidding.  "I wish that I could have seen Jim  start."  The voice came from the bed, and  Kitty flushed guiltily as she turned towards the speaker. Me did then read  her very thoughts.  "Why do you say -that?"  "It must have been such a grand  match between Jim and the stallion.  I don't think Jim has his equal as a  horseman."  "That is what they say about here,  but I don't suppose that he would be  any good In your country."   <  "Why my country and not yours?"  and then with a generous impulse,  "Jim would be good anywhere. Tbe  better the class tbe more he wou'd  shine in it. Sitting a fence isn't as  hard as sitting a buck jumper. Seeming is not worth anything compared to  doing," and he pushed irritably at the  bedclothes which encompassed him.  "Suffering ia harder than either,"  said a quiet voice at his elbow. "Kitty,  make Mr. Anstruther take this, and  don't let him worry about Jim. Jim is  quite able to take care of himself."  Jim's best friend was his worst advocate. It was Just that ability to take  care pf himself which told against bim  with the woman be loved; just the  helplessness and dependence of Anstruther which appealed to Kitty.  It almost seemed as if the quiet of  the sick room had leaked through the  log walls, and pervaded not only the  whole ranch, hut nature itself. Even  the storm had quieted down after that  one wild night.  As tbe house lay somewhat lower  than the surrounding country, *it was  wrapped in a veil of mist, through  and above which tbe rising fei:s  showed, patched with thin snow,  which emphasised the great distances,  and the beggarliness ot the November  foothills.        ..  It was the time of the year in which.  to a girl like Kitty, the contract between the sheltered life of the 0!d  Country and the homelessness of the  new would be most apparent, and as  ���������be dwelt upon this, looking hour aft r  hour into the gloom outside, the only  relief to her thoughts was the nece?-  iity for waiting upon the man who bad  become to her typical of England. To  her, in the midst of her reverie, came  phon. the Chinese cook.  "Missy Bolt here?"  "No; Isn't she with tbe Boss?"  "No can find her. Ole Mary come,  want some clothes. Heap cold,' and  the Chinaman gave a sympathetic  Shiver. "You go find Missy Rolt; me  plenty busy cook him grub.'  Kitty looked at Anstruther.; Apparently he was asleep, so humoring the  cook, she went down to the library,  where Rolt and his wife were sitting.  "Poor old soul; what a day for her  to come," was Mary Rolt's greeting of  the message.  "Just the sort of day to make one  want more clothes, dear. Have you  anything to give her?" asked Rolt.  "I can find something, I expect. I  am rather glad that she has come,  aren't you, Dick? It looks as If the  trouble with her people is blowing  over."  "Perhaps; but the fact that an Indian begs of you means nothing. You  know what cultus potlatch m ana."  "A free gift, that is a fool's bargain.  I know, but i tbink poor old Mary Is  grateful and really likes me."  Her husband smiled. He was not  quite certain which would be the  greater miracle, that anyone should  not like Mary Rolt, or that an Indian  should be grateful. He had known Indians for a lifetime.  After his wife had left the room on  her mission of charity,-taking Kitty  with her to "rummage" in the old  clothes box, the Boss eat for some  time, smoking and thinking, and his  thoughts were not cheerful ones.  A good many of his castles in the  air had fallen since Anstruther's arrival, and without Jim's help he did  not feel as sanguine of ultimate success on the Risky as he had done.  A sharp cry called him back frcm  the future to the present.  "What is it," he called, opening his  door.  "I dont know, dear, answered his  wife from the lumber room. "It must  have been Mr. Anstruther who called.  "Where is Kitty?"  "Here with me, looking out something for old Mary.  "She ought not to���������"  But at thi6 point be and his wife  reached the sick room together, wliere  Kitty was already bending over Anstruther.  "He has fainted again," she said,  chafing his hands helplessly, Trot even  as she spoke consciousness returned  to him.  "I beg your pardon," be murmured,  very faintly. "I give you all so much  trouble, but when I tried to call you,  -I got another nasty one, and went off,  I suppose, as usual. It seems to me I  can't do anything without fainting"  and he closed his eyes wearily, almost  as if he were going to illustrate his  1&b������ words y "*  "What did you want, old fellow?"  asked Rolt, kindly. "We won't leave  you again. It was very careless of us  to do so."  Anstruther lifted his band in deprecating fashion.  "Nonsense. I don't want so much  looking after, but when Kitty was  away I thought that I saw someone in  that little room."  "In my bath room?" ^  "Yes, Kitty sits there sometimes  when she wants me to stop talking and  sleep, and I thought that she had come  back."  "There is no one there now," said  Rolt, coming back from tbe room.  "Who did you think it was?"  s "I don't know. I saw someone peering round tbe door at me. I thought  that it was an Indian when 1 eat up  and called, you know what happened."  "Did you hear the man move?"  "No; I only saw the face, or thought  that 1 did. but perhaps it was only a  sick man's fancy."  "He is a fraud, Kitty," decided Rolt,  with a good-humored laugh," he want-  Kitty for the nonce had donned cap  ind apron, and Anstruther was not  the first to discover more charm and  coquetry in a maid's cap than in her  mistress's toilette.  "Does the family expect to be waited  on or does it stretch?"   she   asked,  saucily. ~ '������������������.���������.���������  "What do you mean, Katherine?  "Where I was last, the family had  to be waited on when it had a par.y,  but when it was by itself it stretched  like this," and reaching across the  table she possesed herself of a salt  cellar. ������������������,,'���������  "You went as a lady-help, 1 suppose," retorted Mrs. Rolt, severely,  "all lady and no help, like Miss Mo-  ran."  "What was her story?" asked Anstruther.  "Oh, she came out to help the poor  dear boys, her brothers. They could  not afford to hire any help, and just  nigged until she came.

But Anstruther was not listening to  Mrs. Rolfs libel on lady-helps; Instead, he was gating intently through  the uncurtained window at the foot of  hie bed, to which the others had their  backs turned. ��������� v.  "Who would be camping down the  valley to-night, Mrs. Rolt?" he asked.  "In the hay meadows?   No one.  "Is not that a fire? Surely, my eyes  are not playing me false again?"

"Will you swear to keep sun,  Frank?"  "I swear.   Run, dear-  The girl obeyed him, and a few  moments later Mrs. Rolt, Kitty, and  the -frightened Chinese cook reentered the room.  "They can't get ln now unless they  burst the doors," sobbed Mrs. Rolt,  breathless with her exertions.  "Watch that back door, Kitty, whilst  I call the men," and she ran to her  husband's room again for the revolver which hung there.  Tearing away the curtains, and  throwing tbe little window open, she  peered out, but the light inalde waa  too bright.   She could aee nothing.

The November day was  drawing rapidly to a close, and he  knew that old Mary had seven miles  to trudge back to ber ranche rle, but it  was curious tbat she had not waited.  He could see the trail which led to  the gulch through which ran Mary's  road home, but there was no sign ot  Mary. Old as she was she must ha e  moved quickly to have gained the  shelter of the gulch already, or she  could not have waited long for those  clothes.  A question which Rolt wanted to  ask was suppressed before It left his  ter teed.   Keep cool and run now and  tell the men in the dining-room.

I will go and  see to it at once." ���������  This was more than Rolt had bargained for. He had obtained tbe information he wanted without alarming her, but by suggesting a fault  where he knew none existed.  However, he  followed his  wife to  the room, and  was   relieved   to  be  shown all sorts of dirt and disorder,  which he himself would never hsve  noticed, but no trace could he find of  tbat for which he was looking.  1    Notuiug bad been touched; nothing  j that he could think of was missing.  i Even that damp outline on the boards  had dried off now.   He wished that ha  had examined It more carefully, but,  after all, it could not have be;n old  Mary in his room, though she apparently did know the way to it.  He paused for a long minute, and  went over everything carefully with  his eye. By George! his Winchester  bad gone. No. it hadn't. There it  was behind his oilskin, and there was  absolutely nothing else which she  could bave wanted.  That face peering around the doorway must have been a sick man's  fancy.  JDo*Inv I that was on hand, even if the noise  of saddling up and the burry of hoofs  beneath the window and the short  ���������harp sentences of the mounting men  had not told tbe tale.  "is It shoot, Al?" they heard someone ask.  "Shoot? Aye, shoot to kill, curse  them. Git, you devil," and a clatter of  hoofs told that the horse had "got."  "Never mind the near stacks, boys;  you can't save tbem.  Ride tor all you  are worth to the first that Is not lighted, snd���������" the Boss's voice died out  as he galloped away wltb his men.  I    At tbe back of the ranch and on  I both sides of it lay a great enclosed  meadow of about a thousand acres In  | a long parallelogram, and down the  ! middle of It ran a chain of bay stacks,  each fenced in, tbe teed upon which  | depended the safety of Rolt's stock If  , a bard winter should come.  I    There   are   years, many of them,  I luckily, in which these stacks need not  !be touched.    In an open winter the  I cattle are carried without having re-  1 sort to the store laid up for a hard  ���������pell, and in consequence some men  trust to luck and keep little or no  i reserve of hay.  j    These are the men who fail In the  ' cattle   business.    Sooner or later  a  deep snow- comes;  so deep that the  ! cattle cannot paw it away to get at  the grass beneath, and then the men  who have not  provided against such  times lose every head of Etock.  !    It means ruin to the improvident.  but Dick Rolt waB not such a fool as  to take any chances where the sat ty  of his cattle   was concerned.    Three  years' hay was stacked in the thousand acres, and if none of it should be ! toria."  straight.  The old man nodded and went out.  In a couple ot minutes he was back  again tor tbe lantern. When be returned again be handed the Boss a  key*  "I thought as you alius kept that  yourself, Boss."  "Where did you find It?"  "In the Coor of the store-house."  Rolt looked down at it for a moment.   "The old devil," be muttered.  "Jest so. But how did he come to .  get It?"  One who has bad considerable experience ln the evork of putlng np  stoves, says the first step to be taken  to put on a very old and ragged coat,  under the impression tbat when be ,  gets his mouth full of plaster It wfll  keep his shirt bosom clean. Next he  gets his hands inside the place where  the pipe ought to go, and blacks his  lingers, and then he carefully makes  a black mark down one aide of his  nose. It la impossible o make any  headway, in doing this work, until this  mark is made down the aide of tbe  nose. Having got his face properly  marked, the victim is ready to begin  the ceremony.  The head of the family���������who is the  big goose of the sacrifice���������grasps one  side of the bottom of the stove, and  his wife and the hired girl take hold  ot the other side. In this way the toad  ia started from the woodshed toward  the parlor. Going through the door  the head of "the family will carefully  swing his side ot the stove around, and  Jam his thumb nail agalnst-the door  post. This part of tbe oeremon*r I*  never omitted.  Having got tbe stove.comfortably ta  place, the next thing Is to find tbe legs.  Two ot these are left inside tbe stove  since the spring before. Tbe other  two muBt be hunted after for wenty-  five minutes. They are usually found  under the coal.  Then the head of the family holds  up one side of tbe stove while his wife  puts two of the legs in place, and next  be holds up tbe other side while the  other two are fixed;, and one of tbe first  two falls out.  By the time the stove is on its legs  he gets reckless, and takes off his old  coat regardless of bis linen. Then he  goes off for the pipe, and gets a cinder  in his eye. It makes no difference bow  well tbe pipe was up last year, It will  be found a little too short or a little  too long.  The bead of the family Jams  "Old Mary must have stolen it from-. hto bat over bis eyes, and takes a pipe  my room when she came bagging thl������ r *^  afternoon."  "Guess so. Women bad ought to do  their own chores. I ain't got no u.e  for Injlns round a ranch. Theyve  got all the rifles."  "Wbat?"  "All them spare rifles and three or  four dozen boxes of cartrtdg s. 1  should say. though some of them  won't help em much. The rifles are  forty-fives, and half the cartridges  were for your fifty hundred and ten.  Guess we bustled em a bit or they  wouldn't have made such a fool break  as tbat."  Whilst they were speaking Mary  Rolt bad remained unnoticed with  them. Now her husband saw her and  bade ber run up stairB and tell the  other two that It was all over and no  barm done.  When she had gone master and  man faced each other for some minutes in silence.  "Can't save tho stacks. Al?"  "That don't make no oddB. We've  plenty left."  "I suppose so, if we are lucky  | enough to live to want it."  Oh,   we shall.    We'll  pull  through  all right, but I  wish the women folk  ! were out of this, at Sody Creek or Vic-  :~:i-  | CHAPTER XVII.  ; In order to keep Anstruther amused  land quiet, Mary Rolt had dir.n;r  served that night for the four of them  in the bedroom, busying herself in  making the pretty place as vivid a  contrast as possible to the grim world  outside.  ; A wood fire glowed merrily on the  I wide hearth, and the light of it was  reflected by the silver and glass that  i nestled cosily in the folds of the roie-  ! colored cretonne hangings.  "Do you want all the blinds drawn,  : Frank?" she asked with her hand on  : the last of them.  \    "Not unless you wish it."  "Well, then. I'll leave this one nn-  1 drawn. I always snuggle into bed  ! more cosily when I can peep out into  i a bitter night like that. Can you see  | down tbe valley from where you lie  | without moving? A peep at it will  i make tbe fire feel warmer and the  ��������� room more homelike."  I "It alwayB feelB homelike where you  'are, Mrs. Rolt."  i She curtseyed to him with a laugb*  j and then, turning to Kitty, who had  i just entered the room, bade her be  ! quick with the dinner. ^  I "And see, my girl," she added,  I "that Is not the way to lay a table,"  and then with a few deft touches rearranged some of the silver.  used the next year's crop would be cut  and stacked just the same.  The sight which met the eyes of  those who watched at the window-  would have been weirdly beautiful if  tbe meaning of it had not been ao  "You think It ia war, then?"  "You bet it's war.    What did they  want   them   rifles   for.     They   oniy  burned the stacks to get a show at the  store."  There was no answer to this,   but  under each arm, goes to the tin shop  to have it fixed.  When he gets back he steps upon  one ot tbe best parlor chairs to see if  the pipe fits, and bis wife makes bim  get down tor tear he will scratch the  varnish off from tbe chair with the  nails in his boot heel. In getting down  be will surely step on the cat, and  may thank his stars if It Is not the  baby. Then he gets an old chair, and  climbs up to the chimney again, to find  that in cutting the pipe off, the end  has been left too big for the bole ln  the chimney. So he goes to the woodshed and splits one side of the end of  the pipe with an old axe, and squeetes  it iu his hands to make it smaller. Finally, he gets the pipe in shape, and  finds that the stove does not stand  true.  Then himself and wife and tbe hired  girl move the stove to the left, and the  legs fall out again. Next is to move  to the right. More difficulty with the  legs. Moved to the front a little. Elbow not even with the hole in the  chimney, and he goes to the woodshed  after some little blocks.  While putting the blocks under the  legs the pipe comes out of the chimney.   That remedied, the elbow keeps  hideous.    The night -as one which jthe two Jistenlng^ heard the>   beat  of; ^^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^  not only precluded any possibility ot  accidental ignition, but made it difficult to understand the rapidity with  which stack after stack burst into  flames.  The heavy Scotch mist with which  ; the valley was filled���������a freezing mist.  ! which was almost rain���������was crimson  j now. -  I Over twenty stacks, beginning with  the one nearest to the ranch house,  j were in flames, one here   and  there  ! which had failed to ignite standing  out black and exaggerated in size, in  j the fierce light made by its fellows,  j whilst tbe roar of the burning could  ! be heard where the watchers stood.  j Down in the middle of the valley  ran a chain of red fire, whilst the  walls of it were still darkness made  darker by contrast, and in this, imagination could paint the twelve or  fourteen men who rode with their  weapons in their hands and murder in  their hearts.  Once or twice a figure was seen  near the farthest of the stacks, thrown  out ln bold relief for a moment as the  devil's work succeeded and the flames  took hold, but though Mary Rolt held  her breath to listen, there came no  rattle of fire arms.  "Twenty-three, Mary, but It is ten  minutes since the last blazed up."  "Stop   where you are, Kitty.   Mr.  the returning hoofs, and before long  about half of the men of tbe ranch j  reined up their lathering   horses   in j  front of the mes3 house.

POOR OLD MOTHER.  In the correspoi dence column of a  contemporary there recently appeared  a question by a son-in-law with whom  his wife's mother had1 been living as  to whether other members of the family (three sons), who were said to be  able, though unwilling, could be compelled to bear a portion of the expense of the mother's maintenance.  She had been ..ving with one of the  sons, and the brother-in-law had been  asked if she could be boarded in his  house, so that the daughter might look  after her. This was agreed to, but the  board money was not paid, and after  eighteen months of squabbling the  question was asked. The answer was  diplomatic, namely, that the matter  was one which required most judicious handling, and that a solicitor  should be consulted. Had the person  in charge of the question column  known of the Canadian overnment Annuities System, the wisest thing he  could have done would have been to  recommend the purchase of a Government Annuity. At her age (75) an  annuity of 1300 ($75 every three  months), payable as long as she Uvea,  could have been purchased for $1922.  j The mother could then have lived happily with her daughter for the remainder of her dayB, the son-in-law would  have regarded the family ties would  have remained unbroken. But best of  all, the comfort and happiness of the  dear old mother, who had nursed them  in their infancy, had, perhaps, spent  many a sleepless night in anxious attendance upon them when the "Dread  Messenger" was hovering near, ready  to snatch them away from her, and  who had guided their young footsteps  in the straight and narrow path ���������  prlcelesB services ��������� would then have  been assured for all time. Happily in  Canada cases of this kind are few, and  they will be still fewer in tbe years to  come if the boys and girls of today  can only be induced to pay into the  Annuities System a few cents each  week. For example, a young man of  20, by paying in 50 cents a week until  he is 60 may purchase an annuity of  $352.76; and a young woman starting  at same age, and paying a like sum  for the same period, could secure an  annuity of $311.72, which, owing to  her longlvity being superior, is somewhat leBs than he would receive. The  age of -50 to a young man or woman  of 20 may seem a long way off, but it  may interest them to know that, according to mortality experience, of  10,000 of either sex starting at 20 considerably more than 50 per cent, will  be still living even at 65. There is  more than an even chance that you  will be one of the 5,000.  Information as to the cost of an annuity at any age may be secured on  application to the postmaster, or to  the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa, to whom your letter may be sent  without postage.  & CO.  2343 Main St.  Phone: Fairmont 497  Grandview and  **t IIIII M It I' 111 Mill I IU  All church notices, noticeB of  births, deaths, marriages and  items ot general interest inserted free.

The opening of the Cedar Cottage  Cricket Club season, which was  scheduled to take place at Hastings  Park creases last Saturday, had to be  postponed for one week oh account of  rain.  .Captain and Mrs. Smith, of South  Vancouver Fire Hall No. 2, at Cedar  Cottage, are receiving the congratulations ot their friends on the safe arrival of a baby daughter. It is reported that little Miss Smith has the  distinction of being the first child born  in a fire hall in Canada.  A tug-of-war team has' been organized at the Cedar Cottage Fire Hall,  and Captain Smith promises to give  some of the regular teams a hard  tussle, as he coached several teams  while in the Royal Navy.

This will add considerably to  the efficiency of this division.  Following the convention of dressmakers and milliners held in Chicago  recently, an active demand has sprung  up for "incandescent hats," and a  query has been received by the Montreal Light, Heat ft Power Company  here, as to whether they would be  willing to enter the field other than  in their present capacity as a prosperous and well-managed public utility  by getting out designs by which lighted flowers could be operated from  small dry batteries in the crown of  the bat.
