The chief articles made here are first-class guns,  small rifles, and bits, that is, boring bits.  The striking thing about the bits is thcfact  that there is a patent covering the special make.  It is unique, and effective. Instead of having the  usual ont point at the end of the bit, it has two  points. The effect is that it takes the wood in 1**  time than the old-fashioned bit. The small screw-  feeder, which draws the bit itself down to the  wood, has really a double thread, and feeds more  rapidly than it could do otherwise.  As to the gun-*, there are many varieties, some  of them running as high as $250. No neater and  more effective shotguns are made.-  However, what I aim at in these short notes  is this: This factory is an index of what Canada  ia doing and of what Canada is coming to, in the  near future. Mr. Tobin, on finding out that I was  simply trying to study the various trade relations  of the Dominion, gave me .special advantages.  He showed me all through his works, explained  the various machines and the work being turned  out, and then he took me to his office and turned  open the order book. .       '   .  To my mind this was the most educating part  of ray trip. Orders are there from nearly all the  countries of the world. The Tobin Gun, that may  not be specially famous out in British Columbia,  is known wherever there are sportsmen in other  lands. Thus Canada, through the Tobin Gun, is  being advertised in the jungles of Asia, on the  broad plains of South America, in the mighty  mountain ranges of many countries, and amongst  the sportsmen at the crockery pigeon shooting  ranges. . ,       . ������  So far so good. But there is another phase of  this matter that might well be mentioned. The  Order book shows that these Canadian goods go  to the various countries, very largely through the  big exporting houses of the States. Here is room  for some remarks.  OUR TRADE AGENTS.  At present I do not know just where Canada  has Trades Agents placed. Nor do I know exactly what their duties are. But one thing clear  to my mind is this. A trades agent should have  much to do in helping to secure a chain of IMPORTERS of Canadian goods. Instead of a New  -York house being the medium of transferring  Canadian goods from the factories to Australia,-  this work should be, done by* an Australian importing house. . , ' -  v Our trades agent in Australia, perhaps, tries  Ito bring about this state rather than to let the  work be done in the other roundabout way. If  not he should. It seems strange that when Rangoon wants Canadian goods they have to be  ordered from Chicago or New York. Why not  have direct connections made between Rangoon  and Canada? This is a matter for our Trades  Agents, to some extent at least.  It is well known that Consuls, and Consuls-General are Trades Agents more than anything else  Their work is to push. forward the business of  their own countries. Germany is the most up-to-  date eountrv in the world in this regard. The  United States comes next.

A thorough survey of Fake Creek with a view to its improvement, either by dredging or the  building of suitable locks and dam at its outlet, or both combined.   Meanwhile the dredging  at the entrance to be continued, as it is very important to the shipping interests that the channel  should be deepened to allow the class of vessels that use it at present, and can only get into the < >  Creek at high water, to enter at all stages of the tide. ���������  As regards the general improvement of False Creek, the firat step, in my opinion, to be taken  is the relocation of the Canadian Pacific Railway bridge (now used by the British Columbia  Electric Railway) which, in its present position, is a menace to navigation, and an obstruction  *, to the fairway leading up the Creek. In rebuilding this bridge, the draw span should be at least  * as wide as that in the new Granville Street bridge, and, if possible, the centre line of the bridge  ][ should be at right angles to the channel. The City of Vancouver should be ordered to at once  ��������������� remove the old Granville Street Bridge, which is also a menace to the navigation of the Creek.  *���������*  % First Narrows.  The work of dredging in the First Narrows is progressing very favorably, but it should  be prosecuted most diligently day and night, until the work of widening is completed and Part hia  S Shoal is removed.   The waters of the Capilano River should be diverted to the. West Channel to  t prevent the sand and gravel, which are carried down during the flood season from being washed  into the channel which is now being made by the dredge.  This program is submitted as one which can be carried out immediately, and until such time  as all the information to be obtained from surveys is available, when a general scheme of improvement may be elaborated and submitted for approval. If sanctioned, immediate orders will be  issued to have it carried' out.  The sum of $500,000 now available is ample for all requirements during the present fiscal year,  as some time must be taken up for the preparation of the necessary contract plans and specifications.

These two oien have heen Can*  ada's Sir Wet-blankets on all imperial affairs. And  neither of them knows enough to stop the cold-  water-pouring operation, even though Canada haa  proved herself the'most loyal member of the  Mighty Imperial Federation.  Another thing comes home to one reading the  Globe. It is this. Editor Macdonald prates everlastingly of peace between Germany and Great  Britain. He minimises the true causes of the  pressing dangers menacing Britain from Germany,  and magnifies the attempts of certain German  public men looking towards peace, even when  these men mix false pretensions with something  of truth and candour. His attitude is, perhaps,  unconsciously taken, but it is one of help to the  Teuton and adverse to the beat interests of Great  Britain. This comports with his steady endeavors  to aid the interests of the States as against Canada, unconsciously, perhaps!!  He is playing the role of Stead, when the latter  was a strong supporter of Russia for long years  against Britain. He could always see Russia to be  good and Britain bad���������very bad. And Stead  played the role until he was turned down cold by  Russia when he went so far as to imagine his  services, which he offered to Russia, would .be  accepted for internal reforms. Russia did with  Stead what the States have been doing with Macdonald. The big bear patted him ou the back  as long as his pen and influence went against Britain and in favour of Tiussia. He imagined that  Russian friendship was sincere. Tt was just as  sincere as her friendship is Avith any tool she can  use against her enemies.  During the Boer war we had another striking  manifestation of the craze of a certain kind of  clever man for taking part against his own eountrv, and in favour of the enemy. Lloyd-George  was happv. only so far as the Boers were successful. As with Lloyd-George, so with Stead, so with  Macdonald, and so largely for a whole generation  with the late Goldwin Smith. Of the four, Editor  Macdonald is the only one playing at the old  game. Perhaps he, too, will learn to improve and  Join the majority later on, thus blessing by his influence instead of blighting.

The report says further: "While the  rainfall In Minnesota, Wisconsin,  fowa, Illinois, Missouri and Indiana  la ordinarily sufficient to produce good  crops one year with another It la  known from personal experience aad  observation tbat It is possible almost  anywhere to increase the yield of  crops by following dry-farming me*  thods. A wide-spread adoption of  such methods would mean adding  millions of dollars to the income of  farmers all through the central portion of this country."���������Gas Review,  Madison, Wisconsin.

ARGENTINA'S CORN CROP.  The International Institute of Agriculture, Rome, Italy, estimates   the  production of corn In Argentina this  season at 295,854 bushels.  Small fruit on tne farm Is a source  ot Joy and satisfaction. You often  bear people say they can buy tbe fruit  cheaper than they can raise It, but  they don't; and what's more it never  tastes so good as the home grown.  It is estimated that about $35,000,000  worth of pork products are shipped  into the Pacific Northwest annually  from the Central West. This should be  changed. The opportunities tor swine  raising were .never better.���������Westeta  Farmer, Spokane, Washington.  ���������  FORGET-ME-NOT CHAINS.

In a small building in London more  than a- hundred thousand pounds���������  actually over ������ 130,000���������changes  hands every minute for six hours a  day, six days, a week. Yet not a  single sovereign i's needed In this huge  business. Forty-eight million pounds  a day are thus dealt with, yet the  whole of the "money" is-paper!      '  The small building is what is called  the Banker's Clearing House, snd  there, every day. assemble representatives of all the great London banks.  To understand what they do, let us  suppose that you pay a tradesman's  bill by cheque. ���������  He sends that cheque,- not to your  bank, but to his own, and his bankers  regard the amount mentioned on the  cheque as'so much money paid to the  tradesman's account But the tradesman's bankers have got only a piece  of paper for the sum of money with  which they have credited him; there-'!' '  forev they must get the .money which '  it represents from your banker, who  must pay it out of the sum of money  which you have at tbe bank".  Now, there are thousands-of people  paying by cheque, and banks have all  these transactions to settle between  themselves. Instead of sending your  cheque round to the bank on which  it is drawn, it Is taken, with hundreds  of other cheques; from the tradesman's bank to the Clearing House.  All the other banks have representatives there, and a settlement of accounts goes on every day. Every bank  deals there with every other bank  whose cheques It holds and to whom  it has sent cheques.  At the end of the day each bank  knows whether there Is a balance  which it has to pay out-to other banks,  or a balance which ,|t has to draw.  The .cheques dealt with.In this' way  total dally, as we have'seen, 48 million pounds, and the settlement need  not involve the passing ef any money.  In a recent year the settlement of  transactions of this character representing over twelve thousand million  pounds was effected without the  agency of a single pennypiece.

Widtsoe of the International Dry-  Farming Congress has received from  Dr. M. Augstin, of Charlotteburg, Berlin, Germany, a report that great interest is being taken at the present  time throughout the German Empire  in the subject of dry-farming, owing  to the numerous dry seasons that  Europe has experienced the past few  years.  The bringing of American dry-farming methods into prominence in the  German Empire 'points to the possibility of a governmental adoption of  some, if not all of them, and it is  anticipated that Emperor William will  send official delegates to the International Dry-Farming Congress at Lethbridge, October 21-26th next, a formal  invitation havlns been sent by H. ft.

On one journey our representative found a blockade on Hastings  and Main (track repairing), a blockade on Sixteenth (track laying), along  Broadway another blockade (track repairing), then coming to Westminster  road with the full expectations of  meeting an old and well-worn barrier,  it was a shock to find the street paved,  the blockade gone and everything looking neat When all this road-tearing  and track-laylng is .finished will we  have good roads?  Burglars Again.  Last Friday night the inmates of 46.0  10th avenue east (two young ladles),  were awakened by hearing a chair  scraped across the downstairs floor.  The man of the house, Mr. Steele, being away visiting in the States, and  the ladies'1 alone, they were a Uttle  startled when the front doorbell rang,  and the next-door neighbors shouted  "There's a light ia the dlningroom."  On investigation, a back window was  found wide open, bare feet tracks of  a man and a small person in the back  verandah, but nothing had been disturbed inside tho house. This seemed  to be near enough however, for the  young ladles, so they bundled up sH  the cutglass and silverware, carrying  it next door, where it will wait the  home-coming of Mr. Steele.  ������������������t- ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ������������������������������ ���������!��������� ���������!������������������!��������� ���������!������������������������!��������� ���������!��������� ���������!��������� <;���������!��������� ���������!��������� <��������� -Irtv'l' '!������������������!��������� ���������!��������� <��������� ���������!��������������������������������� ���������!��������������� <��������� a-t- ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ������<��������� ���������;��������� -l-t <���������*?������������������!��������� -g-;' '!������������;*  LOUGHEED &  I  2343 MAIN STREET  PHONES, FAIrmoBt 49M97  We Live for Contentment}  Contentment means happiness.

^Howlwpuld yon Jifce to have a
steak fifty or a hundred thousand
years old served up to you?" asks
James Oliver Curwood, author of the
recently-published ; novel "Flower , ol
the North." Mr. Curwood tells how
In one of his northern trips he cainc
across some Indians who had dis-
covered the carcass of a mastodon, exposed by tbe falling of a frosen river
cliff.   "The flesh," says Mr. Curwood,
"was of deep red or mahogany color,
and I dined on a steak an Inch' and a
half thick.   My first taste Vof  the
flesh sent me back, I suppose, fifty:,
thousand years or more.   The flavor
o fthe meat was old���not unpleasant
���-but simply old and dry.    That It
had lost none of   Its   life-sustaining*
elements during those   hundreds   of
centuries of 'cold, storage' was shown
by the fact tbat the dogs throve upon
It."

vancouver's new ball park
Will be situated in fairview.
Long Lesss Takervof Property at Fifth
Avenue and Hemlock Street by
"Bob* Brown.
Vancouver's new athletic park will
be situated at the corner of Fifth
avenue snd Hemlock street, Just one
block east of Granville street and within six minutes' ride from the post-
office. Such was the announcement
made last evening by Mr. Robert P.
Brown, president of the Vancouver
baseball club, in a wire from Seattle.
Mr. Brown has been negotiating
with the C. P. R., who owns the above
property, for some time past, as his
lease on Recreation park expires this
fall, but It was not until last evening
that the deal was finally,closed. In
the agreement, Mr. Brown was given
a 25-year lease on the property with
an option to purchase, and it is his
intention to make the above site into
one of the finest* if not' the -finest athletic fields in the Northwest.    .'������: '_._
The grounds are Ideally situated,
overlooking False creek, and are sufficiently central'to enable sport lovers
to attend their favorite pastimes with
but little inconvenience.
As yet the grounds have not been
cleared but work will be commenced
immediately, and it is certain that by
the time the seal lias been placed on
the Homer street grounds the new
field will be ready. Not alone will
the grounds-be used for baseball, but
lacrosse, football and other athletic
events will be staged there henceforth.
���- Following is the wire received from
the Baseball Boss last evening:
"Have closed with O P. R. for oth-
letlc grounds at Fifth avenue and
Hemlock, less than: six minutes car
service from the yppstofflee. Expect
to make this the best field in the west
for baseball, lacrosse,'football track
and all athletic sports,
five years lease on these grounds with
option to purchase, so we are assured
of a good athletic field for lovers of
clean sport in Vancouver.   Expect to
are said to be of a serious nature, but
Mr. Page yesterday wss reported tb be
doing as well as could be expected.

"The American girl, generally speaking, is a nervous girl; the nervousness, in one form or another, seems  to crop up in all classes," says The  Woman's Home Companion.   -  *1 happened to be in the train the  other day with fifteen young girls  ���������who, with two chaperons, were going to New York city for a .-matinee.

It had been hoped it would not be  necessary to have to Insert the ssual  paragraph concerning the dynamiting  work, Owing to the fact that no ^plosions took place during the first two  weeks. Unfortunately, however, the  blasting during the last two weeks,  more than made up for the ^fortnight's lull. Lately the city authorities have been clearing the enormous  cedar stumps immediately surrounding the pens-  Several pens In Class One have  passed the century mark during the  past month, notably, pens 9 (117),  12 (U4), 2 (110), 23 (105), and 7  (104). The following have also distinguished themselves: pens l (99),  19 and 20 (96 each), H (������4). 5 (92),  and 22 (91).   Pens 14, 9,1.12 and W  are producing fine eggs taking weight,  size, texture of shell, and evenness  into account.''  Following pens provided broodies in  Class One. Pen 9, 10, 17, 19, (2 birds).  Pen 9 deserves special mention for  having produced six eggs a day on  six occasions during the month pen 12,  2, 23 (twice), and pens 5, 4, 1 and  14 (once).  Feather eating amongst the light  classes principally is still prevalent,  necessitating further use of the .bitter  aloes and lard mixture. This proves  very effective, until the birds remove  the mixture by dusting.  The star performers in the heayy-  weights    during    the   month    were:  Pens  37   (108  eggs),   33   (105),    38 j  (104), 26 (102), 32 (90). The following j  laid six eggs in one day on one or;  more occasions:   Pen 32  (twice),  37  (twice), 33, 38 and 34  (once).  A point brought out by the hot!  weather experienced on the Uth. 12th  and 13th of May was that the heavy  classes were affected more than the  light weights. In three instances it  was noticed ln Class One of decreased  egg yield immediately after the hot  weather. This occurred in those pens  only that were already laying very  poorly. In the heavy classes almost  every pen dropped in egg yield during  the 15th, 16th and 17th, and then  regained normal production again.  Coming to list of broodies for the  month, we find that pen 29 heads the  list, with 6 birds, 25. 27, 31 and 39  (five each), 36 (3), 28, 34.(2), 35 and  40 (1).  Pen 40 commenced to lay just as  the month ended, and may he expected  to give a better account of themselves  in the future. Their produce, however, is still very small in size.  Now that the birds are in full lay,  the animal food has.been increased  from seven to tejn per cent., which is  the limit proposed. The first increase  was given in the January-February,  period.

There was something singular  |o tbelr motion or something the matter wltb my vision, for tbey would ad  vance and holt, advance and bait,  keeping up this motion continuously,  which seemed to me to be like the  swaying of sn object moved by waves  But as tbey drew uear me I did not no  tice such motiou. though tbla might  hove been because I was interested In  tbe persons themselves.  They were both young and. strange  as tt may appear, were walking enclr  cled In each other's arms, clinging so  tight that 1 wondered how tbey could  move at all.

And just then, whether it was  a breeze from tbe eastward or some  thing In tbe clothes of this singula!  couple. I smelled the sea. They did  not speak to me, so I addressed tbem.  "You are out late," I remarked for  tbe want of something better to say  "Yes.** replied the young man. "We  are going up on to the hill yonder "  There was but one hill, and that was  only an eminence on the crest of whicb  was our cemetery. There were n<>  bouses there, only the tombstones  wbieb even from wbere we stood werf  white In tbe moonlight Why in tb*  world should this young couple wish to  gcynp tbere at midnight?    ,  "There Is a fine view of the ocean a\<  tbere." I remarked-  "But it's cold." said the girl, with a  shiver.  "It isn't the view we want." said the  young man: "It's tbe rest. Tbe dead  tbere are undisturbed. Tbey lie tranquil hy day and by night. Tbey do  not bear tbat continued distant rustle  of the waves we hear now nor tbe  boom the waters make when tbey dash  against a rock. Nothing Is so frightful  as a great black cold wsve.

He looked down at tbe girl of wbom  be asked tbe question, and she replied  with a look of dread and by clinging  ���������'loser to nlm.  "We were bathing." tbe man continued. "The waves were running high,  and, we bad been advised not to go  In. The beacb was shelving and the  undertow strong. ' Both good swimmers, we delighted In buffeting tbe  huge rollers, and when women snd  children were dancing In the shallow  foam or a few clinging to tbe rone,  squatting to let sn expended breaker  sprinkle tbelr shoulders, we wslked  hand in band out to meet tbe advancing monsters, st first turning sldewlse  to let tbem pas'* no. then Jumping  above tbem snd at Isst diving under  tbem, in this way we got beyond  tbelr white triune* and swam, now  buoyed np toward the sky and now  lowered toward the bottom or sand.

"Rut when I looked and saw that we  were drifting, suddenly i became con  sclous, that the billows would not help  us back. It was. than that their merciless nature first struck me.

JBJ9--' "  -  Pekln, June 10.���������Teal Yuan Pel,  China's new minister of education, proposes compulsory attendance for the  entire rising generation of Chinese.  The minister does not want to overdo  matters at first, so for a time, he sag*  gesta that the legally required period  of schooling be only four years. Later  his Idea Is to increase It to six years  and' finally to eight.  Pointing out that If education Is to  be compulsory It must also be free,  the minister Is planning the almost  Immediate establishment of elementary grammar and high schools at the  government's expenses. From the high  schools students who core to go  farther will be eligible to admission to  Pekln university.  For tbe elementary, grammar and  especially the high schools, It Is planned to engage a good many foreign  .professors. Minister Baal conceding  ' that there are. not enough Chinese  with the requisite training to fill more  than a small proportion of the positions soon to be created.  The minister's programme will, of  coarse, require legislative approval,  which Is, however, virtually assured.  Though exact figures are lacking,  there Is probably 90 per cent or more  or Illiteracy throughout China at present  On a busy day a woman walked Into  the office ot the court room at Atlanta,  Qa.^tnd addressing Judge Blank, said:  "Are yon the reprobate Judge?"  "I am the probate judge."  "That is what I was saying," one  said, "and I have come to you because  I am In. trouble.

(Continued from Page I)  Germany he would speak out candidly and tell  the latter her faults. He is not so much up with  peace as with the role of making big speeches on  peace, and writing miles of verbiage in the name  of peace. But that he is a man of peace, that he  would sink^ himself in the interests of peace, that  he is honestly striving for peace, tht he is other  than a sham when preaching peace, is a huge joke.  And all who know his public aareer know that  what I say is true.  Did any public man ever in the history of Canada more fiercely assail another public man in  Canada than the editor of the Globe did the  Honourable George E. Foster t Never. He bated  his able political opponent with a perfect political  hate, which was so full of venom during a long  trial that friends and foes* alike were amazed.  If he were a man of peace he would not.be so  bitter, and his editorial persecutions would be  less relentless. He would know enough to settle  down to the willjof the majority as shown at the  polls. He would not let his pride and self-worship  so run away with him as to serve the best interests  of the States against Canada; Canadians have  spoken. Does the peaceloveVsubside? Or is he  too angry, and full of bitter war to subside and;  abide by the officially expressed will of the ma  jority? His anger at defeat, and his self-worship  are so strong that he cannot or will not accept  peace. He would in big noisy spueeches'and by  long editorials, council Britain to make term's  with Germany; and Canada, to yield to the "Adjunct Plans' of Taft and Clarke; he would not  dream of making peace with the Hon! George E.  Foster, or the majority of his fellow Canadians.  Not much. This would come to,near home. It  would be too practical and manly, and Christian.  He prefers to keep up the holwing against Canada  and Britain for working out plans that are too  broad and 'high, and wse, for Mm to grasp.   -  The truly serious part of the whole matter is  this :--He has wrecked one of the greatest political parties of the last hundred years, and until  he and his sort are thrown put of the Liberal  camp there can be no rejuvenation, or upbuilding.  There should be one watchword of that party,  and in its concrete form it could be put in the  word:���������IMPERIALISM. v (  This would for a time clean out not. only Editor  Macdonald, but hosts of others. However, soon  would follow a mighty upbuilding that would  astonish Canadians .as well as the Liberals of  Canada.  COMMITTED 8UICIDE  IN HA8TING8 PARK  Revolver Lay In Hand of Badly Decomposed  Corpae Discovered  Yesterday.  After.lying for about six months  among some dense underbrush In  Hastings Park, at the corner of Eton  street, the badly decomposed body of  an nnknown man was discovered.yesterday afternoon. In the hand of the  corpse was a revolver with two of the  cartridges discharged. A box of cartridges was found lying by the side  of the remains. The body waa lying  within fifteen yards of the' main thoroughfare and within ten feet of the  trail. Thousands of pedestrians have  probably passed along the trail since  the tragedy occurred without having  any inkling of the ghastly spectacle  that lay hidden In the bush a few feet  away.  It Is Improbable that the Identity of  the deceased will never be known as  he had no effects which are likely to  be Identified. In ..the pockets of a  coat on the body were found a watch,  a prospector's compass, a magnifying  glass and 55 cents. The man wore  thick brown boots;  The body was discovered by Mr.  Louis Hotley, of the Hastings Park  Amusement company, who was, walking along the road looking for a friend-  He had been in the park hat a few  minutes when he noticed a hoot protruding from tbe buah within a few  feet of the trail. Getting a closer view  he discovered the body lying* huddled  up In the hush. The remains were removed to Harron Brothers' undertak  ing rooms.  The thick winter overcoat which  clothed the corpse, aa well aa a pair  of woolen mitts on the hands, showed  that the man met bis .tragic end at a  time when the snow was still on the  ground.  mmm  The careful. , housewife never  throws away a hit of bacon fat* Baa  uses it lor frying fish or potato** **>  good advantage.
