[Whilst enclosing my annual donation for.the  lorthy causes wider your wise superintendence,  (beg to bring before your notice the following  Cresting communication, received on the eye  last Purim, from the moat aristocratic club in  akio, which is composed of the wisest and moat  lamed men of the Japanese empire.  I After congratulating me on the occasion of the  lurim festivity, the members invited me to ait  Jpon their specially appointed committee which  |as for ts object the search for true religion.  What we wish for, they say, is a religion that  lould be compatible with logic, reason and bu-  tanity.  The theories of our ancients were perhaps good  bnough for their respective generations, but they  have evaporated before the effulgent rays of modern science and philosophy.  I We do not wish a religion merely to deaden  tar sensibilities, to soothe our deranged nerves,  \r palliate the proclivities of degenerate minds���������  ������rhat we wish for is a living religion which, whilst  jisciplining our souls for their future high calling,  frail, at the same time, inspire us with lofty  ieabi, genuine philanthropy, tolerance, forbear-  nee, and unalloyed affection one towards an-  bther. ~ '  Although we have scrutinisingly passed under  |ur notice, almost all professions of faith, we have  iund nothing that could quench our thirst for  ie Truth.  Even the Christian religion, with all the advantages to her credit, and with all her boasted civ-  [ization, does not agree with our ideal notion of  Ihat true religion should and must be. ^  l,We find in it flaws and deficiencies that are  jsolutely incompatible with attributes of a true  leity.  1 Also, its anthropomorphism made us stumble on  le very threshold of enquiry.  [When we began to study its history from the  Irk ages onward, what did we find?  [We found persecutions, torturings, venomous  freed-hatreds,  and bloody hostilities even between the Christian nations themselves.  iWhere do we find among them evidence of a  peat, divine power to muzzle and bridle their  tssions, and restrain them from committing such  ktrages? '  Even now, are not those nations which claim  be the most Christian busily occupied in pre-  Irations for war, and in^the construction of in-  irnal engines for the destruction of their fellow  re-n?  fNo. dogma, no sophistry, no speculative theo-  Igieal theory, and no human eloquence can weave  Igether an apology for the unspeakable horros  lat we still find entwined with the life, morals  Id politics of the Christian nations.  [Nay, nay, far from us be such a church which  t-poe'ritically and artfully-condones the inhuman  practices of war���������a church that prays to her  Deity for the victory of her nation to the detriment of another Christian nation, which equally  prays to the same Deity for a diametrically contrary effect.... "  There is, however, one religion of which we  have not yet sounded the depths, nor measured  the altitudes, that is-���������Judaism.  We beg you, therefore^ to put us into communication with the wisest and most learned men  among your coreligionists,' that we may be initiated by them into the true elements of their faith  ' ���������-a faith which claims to have, been revealed to  them miraculously by the Creator Himself.  The above is to show you, my beloved kinsman  of the House of: Judah, the spirit of earnest enquiry which has been poured out upon the intellectuals of Japan.  Would it not be in accordance with the high  mission entrusted to lis by the great' Jehovah, if,:  you were to appoint a committee of learned theologians and Bible students from our various sects,  whose object should be to crystallite all the infallible proofs of the divine origin of Judaism,  so that this wonderful Japanese people may be  reclaimed from gross heathenism, and be brought  to. the rational truth of Jehovahism in fulfilment  of the first seven verses of the forty-ninth chapter  of Isaiah.* /  We hear that the Jerusalem rabbis are giving  .the matter "serious consideration, and intend to  refer it to the highly accomplished Chaoham Bashi  of Turkey, Rabbi Haim Nahoum, who soapte, years  ago. was comroissioned to visit Abvssinia and  report upon the Falaahae.

And professor Odium but expressed the sentiments of the meeting in his last sentence, pregnant with meaning. Expressed the sentiment of  the men who have made'their mark by keeping  step with the march of progress, and  Plain Hat Ctonvtaelng.  It was an eloquent word picture of the future  possibilities of Western Canada, and strangely  enough it was given without eloquence.   It was  just figures, and conservative figures at that. Anyone can take pencil and paper and work it out  for themselves.   It is the logical outcome of the  opening of the Panama Canal and the development of the broad acres of the prairie provinces  of Western Canada, and when Professor Odium  finished many a delegate who came to the convention thinking that he realized to the full the  possibilities* opened up to Western Canada by  the Panama Canal, began to wonder if he realized  the one-thousandeth part of what this big waterway means to this part of the Dominion.   The  figures were stupendous, staggering, and yet the  speaker did not go into the matter as -fully as  he could have gone.   In imagination his hearers  could see the steady stream of loaded grain cars,  Tolling over the prairie.   One every hour, 15 cara  to the train, they saw them.    Without stop or  cessation, day and night, for 300 days of the  year.   They saw the steamships clearing for foreign ports daily, but only the grain situation waa  touched upon.   Nothing was said of the lumber  industry, the stockraising industry, the huge train-  loads of farm machinery that would have to come  West to supply the machinery for the cultivation  of the vast grain fields, or the trainloads of mer-  chandise that would pour into the West from the  manufacturing centers of the East.   Of the cities  and towns that would spring up in Western Canada, each with its own manufactories.   Of the general activity that would prevail over flic whole  Dominion.   Of the new markets of South Africa,  South America, Asia and Europe that would be  opened up to Western Canada.���������Calgary Newa  Telegram.  Other features of the convention will be given  later.

FARMERS PLCASEO WITH  CROPS��������� LUMPER INDUSTRY  IS  FLOURISHING  WINNIPEG, June 28.--"Tbere seems  to be less speculation and more steady  development taking place," sold Vice-  President Bury of the C. P. R. today,  in speaking of his trip to the far West,  from which he hag just returned.  "I found, generally speaking, that  the farmers gave a very good report  regarding the crops. The lumber industry also appears to be flourishing,  with lots of orders ahead. Indeed, the  country all over is enjoying steady  growth."  A 8TATE FAMILY eiaLC.  Kentucky is  one ot  the southern  states which has recently adopted a  modern law for the registration ot  vital statistics, says The Journal of  the   American   Medical   Association.  Put into force a little over a year ago,  it bas been on trial.   As usual, it encountered  opposition. -, Some  people  were .unable  to see why birth and  deaths should be recorded: others did  not like to go to the trouble to moke  out on orderly record of these occurrences.   Because physicians and medical   organizations   led   tbe   way   In  securing this needed legislation,   it  waa, of course, regarded as something  for the benefit of   physicians rather  than for the public good.

In this connection, the editor philosophically refers  to the state, bureau of vital statistics  as "Kentucky's Big Family Bible."   A  happier name could not well be  devised. When the people of Kentucky  understand that  the  object of birth  registration te to record the name and  date of arrival of each little citizen of  Kentucky, so that its legal identity  may be established, ond that the state  is  simply exercising the some core  that leads a father to inscribe each  birth In the family Bible, public support of the measure will be increased  and assured.

(Owing; to several corrections being  mode the following article is republished.)  Whereto Thin.  As soon aB the crop can be determined and the supply of labor permits, thinning should be commenced.  Start with those varlties which are  moat advanced. Generally, apples,  pears, and peaches are thinned when  about the size of a hickory-nut, and  the thinning should be completed be*  fore they are more than double that  size. On the various plums the work  should be commenced as soon as possible after the dropping, familiarly  known as "the June drop," is over.  Apricots, cherries, and crab-apples  are not usually thinned by hand, because the crop which they are to bear  is a reasonably certain quantity, and  can be controlled to a certain extent  than in the larger fruits by proper  prunning. The Italian prune and the  peach plum are not usually thinned,  because normally the set of fruit of  these varieties is not great enough to  warrant the expenditure.  How to Thin.  To set rules for thinning is even  more difficult than to1 set rules for  pruning. The fruit-grower must determine for himself jast how much  crop the tree will be able to carry.  Much dependa on the variety, the age  of the tree, its vitality, the soil, cultivation, climate, and district Under  equal conditions the Winesap may bo  thinned to, say five inches, where the  Jonathan would be thinned to six or  seven, and the Northern Spy to eight.  In climates auch as that of Vancouver Island, where no Irrigation Is  available, and the rainfall averages  about halt aa inch per' month during  the oummer season, or one-fifth that  of the average Ontario district, all  varieties are thinned to a greater distance than In districts of greater rainfall or where Irrigation is available.  In this district It Is advisable to thin  many crops, the whole of which could  he carried to advantage under other  eondiUbns. Unhealthy or diseased  trees ahould not be expected %o grow  as great a load as those In perfect  health, while trees making extensive  growth mar van* well be allowed to  carry much more than average trees  under the same oonditions.  By one role which Is practiced to  some extent the grower slses np all  the conditions on4. determines how  many boxes of fruit the. tree should  carry. It Is a small matter to determine how many fruits there should  be left on tbe tree.  Another rule which might be taken  attractive business might be revived.  Tbe Interest awakened by the latter  movement on the part of the Federal  in connection with the previous one  is to thin plums to about I, 2 1-2 or 3  inches; peaches, 4 to 8, depending on  the earliness of the variety; pears and  apples, 5 to 7 inches apart. In thinning pears and apples, it is only with  early varieties that more than one  should be left on any fruit-spur, and  with these early varieties part of the  crop may be removed In one picking  and the balance later. With winter  varieties of apples it is a good rule  to leave fruit only on each alternate  spur, to encourage annual bearing.  On slender twigs and on wood of tbe  past season's, growth (where many  varieties bear heavily in British Columbia) it is well to thin to a greater  distance than on strong fruit-spurs in  the body of the tree. On the outside  twigs and shoots the fruit will average smaller than on the stouter  branches; they are unable to grow a  close crop of fruit to perfection.  A very important point, well illustrated by tbe Yellow Newton apple.  Is that the centre apple of. the cluster,  and not one of the side apples, should  remain. The centre blossom of the  cluster comes out first; its stem is  usually shorter and stockier than  those of the outside blossoms, and at  the time of thinning the apple is usually much larger than the others  and on a shorter stem. The centre  apple usually hangs better to the  tree; is the typical apple of the var-  ety, is less liable to variation in  Bhape, and having a shorter stem is  better for packing and for appearance  sake.  Fruit-spurs vary greatly in size and  vitality; the best spurs bear the best  fruit; the weaker spurs should he  given a chance to develop into strong  ones before next year's crop.  " In tbe production of fancy fruit,  thinning pays, and pays well. It  means much in the assurance of crops  of only high-class fruit. It is not  likely to be of value unless the orchard is right in the matters of variety,  fertility, cultivation, pruning, and  spraying; it is not likely to give good  returns unless the high-c.lass article  produced is properly packed and marketed by business-like methods. Thinning is an essential feature Of the new  orchard-culture.  Present Indications, are that this  year will see the largest crop of tree-  fruits BritiBh Columbia has yet hod.  Throughout the Province from Vancouver Island to the Kootenoys the  apple, prune, peach, pear, and plum  treeB have been full of blossom, and  there has been no loss from frost or  unfavorable weather.,-Most of the  trees are certain to have a heavy load  of fruit, of which very much will -be  undersized unless thinning is practiced. .It is hoped that fruit-growers  will grasn/the situation rightly. The  prices for undersized fruit are never  very remunerative. It is always the  good, large, perfect fruits that bring  paying returns. This year the difference In price between fancy and low-  grade fruit will be emphasized. Large  yields of iruit are promised in Ontario, in the Middle States, Colorado,  California, Montana, Idaho, Oregon,  and Washington, as well as in British  Columbia. The Northwestern States,  in fact, have the bumper crop of their  history; and they look to the Canadian prairies to buy a great deal of  it, as times are god in Canada, while  money is scarce in the United tates.  This means that there will be plenty  of poor fruit for sale in our markets  without any from British' Columbia,  and the returns for this class of fruit  are bound to be low. Neither do the  canneries want small fruit; there la  no money in pie-peaches for any one.  Every grower should resolve that he  will not grow any peaches smaller  than "90's." Any shipper knows that  there will be no market for the small  stuff, and that even ln the earliest  varieties we con grow, returns will  be unsatisfactory for the small grades.  Fortunately there is no good reason  why any grower should have any percentage of the Bmoll sizes to market  It Is unlikely that any fruit-grower  will thin too' much; it ie quite certain that moat-growers will not thin  enough. While the average man may  know about thinning, he is short the  nerve necessary to carry It out Moat  ot the growers ot British Columbia  have not yet had enough experience  to realize the difference in profits on  large and small sixes. Those men  who see the situation dearly and who  recognise the fundamental necessity  tor adequate thinning Should use-tbelr  influence by getting their neighbors  to take it up.  THE   LEGEND   OP  SIR   RICHARD  WHITTINQTON AND HI8 CAT.  THE POVE.  The Bible contains a remarkable collection of birds, of every sort an!  sise and hue���������the soaring eagle, the  croaking raven, the cruel-hawk, tbe  moping owl. the twittering sparrow,  the darting swallow, the cooing dove  and many more. We like them ail.  but many choose the dove as their  favorite. Hardly is there a house in  our country districts���������mansion or cottage���������without its dove-cot, hung up  In .some corner, where choice pigeons  may moke their abode, build their  nests, fly out and in all the day long,  delighting the little ones with their  kindly ways and their soft cooing  voice.  Po you know the meaning of the  word "dove?" It is from an old Anglo*.  Saxon term���������duva, signifying to  "dive." Then the dove is the "diver;"  ao called, perhaps, from the way It  has of bobbing up and down its little  head, and of quickly rising and falling in the air. "Pigeon," again, has  its root in a Latin verb, "to chirp or  cheep," whicb you have often noticed  young birds do.  Now, it you will open your Bibles  and search for the dove, you will be  astonished to find how often it appears���������so often that you are inclined  to say, "If the dove be my favorite, It  is God's favorite too, as it is so often  spoken about in the Holy Book."  Besides those wild pigeons, which  are very ahy of man, much is made of  tome pigeons, like those that flutter  about so many homes. Isaiah probably referred to these when he said,  "Who are these that fly as'a cloud,  and as the doves to their windows?"  Isa.  60:8.)       s  ' The Egyptians, three thousand years  before Christ, were in the habit of  keeping doves. At the present day in  Palestine, the pigeon is the invariable  companion of man, wherever he has  a settled habitation. The village chief  marks his wealth by the possession  of a large separate dove-cot, built of  mud or brick, and roofed over, filled  with earthen pots, with a wide mouth,  each of which is the home of a pair  of pigeons. The poorer people rear  them in their houses; so also in many  parts of Scotland.  Btu there is another kind of dove  that figures in Scripture- more perhaps than any-other���������I mean the turtle dove. This is a sort of pigeon  which cannot be tamed. You may  catch it, put it in a cage, and be as  kind to It as you may, put it in a  cage, and be as kind to it as you may,  but it won't take to you or trust you.  It simply pines and droops, content  only when,, escaping from confinement,  it can fly away to its mountain. (Ps.  11:1.)  Oreat London city, thrice beneath his  sway  Confirm'd the presage of that happy  day,  When echoing bells their greeting thus  begun,  Return, thrice   Mayor!   Return, oh  Whlttington. ���������Bishop.  Tradition tells a strange story- ot  Sir Richard Whlttington, three times  lord mayor of London, England, and  one of the richest men, and the  greatest philanthropist of the fourteenth century.  Dick, according to this legend, was  a poor orphan boy. He lived in the  country until a rich merchant of  London, named Fltzwarren, took  compassion on him, and gave him  work to do in his kitchen.  Here the chief cook treated him  roughly, but Miss Alice, his master's  daughter, showed him great kind-'  ness.  Dick slept in the garret where the  rats and mice were so thick as to almost worry out his life.  By some means he procured a  penny, and with it purchased a cat  which soon killed or frightened off  his plagues.  Dick's mooter, shortly afterwards,  sent a ship to sea, giving all hia servants permission to send out a ven  ture in her.  Poor Dick had nothing ln the  world hut his faithful cat, and with  tearful eyes he committed her to the  captain -of the merchantman, saying  that now he would-be kept awake all  night by the rota and mice.  Everybody made sport of the crying boy*o venture, which added greatly to hla misery.  But Miss Alice bought bim another  cat  The ship was driven to the coast  of Borbory, and the captain having  sent out5 specimens ot his cargo to  the king' of the country, he and hla  chief mate were invited to dine at  the royal court  The table was spread, but no  sooner were victuals brought out  than rats aad mice swarmed from all  directions and devoured the food.  The aina sold he would give half  his wealth to he delivered from the  tormenting creatures.  Then   the   captain    remembered  cat, and had her brought to  Terminal City Press, Ltd.

Before the ship's return to England, however, Dick had run away  to escape the ill-treatment of the  chief cook. When as far out as Hol-  loway he sat down on a stoned on the  site of which Is one now Inscribed,  "Whlttington's Stone," and dear  which stood the famous Whlttington  College with the figure of its founder  as a bare-legged boy sitting on a  stone, erected In its central court  By some means poor Dick was Induced to return to the city, where  he became possessed of his fortune  from the cat, married Miss Alice, became a rich merchant, an alderman  and a knight, and subsequently was  chosen lord mayor of London.  Whether there is much truth in  this legendary history we know not,  but it is certain that Lord Whiting-  ton was very wealthy, that the name  of Lady Whlttington was Alice Fits-  warren, and that cats in some countries were once worth an enormous  price, one having been sold In South  America for alx hundred thousand  pieces of gold.  When Sir Richard died a costly  tomb waa raised to his memory, and  that of Alice, his faithful wife, who  died twenty yeors before him. The  following epitaph wos written on the  tomb, ond continued perfect until  destroyed by the great fire of London:  Here lies Sir Richard    Whlttington,  thrice Mayor,  And his dear wife, a virtuous loving  pair;  Him fortune raised to be beloved and  great,  By the adventure only of a cat  Let none that read it  of God's love  despair,  Who trusts in him, he will of him take  care;  But growing rich, choose humbleness,  not pridfe;  Let these dead virtuous   persons   be  , your guide.  ���������Selected.

In picking fruit for storage it ahould  be picked while firm, as fruit that has  advanced to a stage of ripeness to be  best for eating, will almost always  "break down" and often, if it looks  well when taken out of cold storage,  will be decayed at the core. Some  fruit men who grow high quality fruit,  pick their orchards more than once,  gathering the fruit as soon as it is  well colored, leaving the poorly colored and immature fruits until they  have become well colored.  If you want to try new kinds of fruit,  buy a small tree. When yoa set it  out/save all the twigs you trim oft  and graft them onto an old tree. Trim  the old tree to give these scions the  sap, and you will have fruit in two  years.���������-Farm and Home.

The  e������>est method is to cut Into the crop  and remove the congested food.- Remove the feather and near the top of  the crop cat a silt throujfh the outer  skin a half inch long. Then cut. a  similar silt Into the crop, and with the  handle of a spoon or finger remove the  mass. {Clean the crop with warm  water, using a small bulb syrlagrt.

Of thia $40,000,000 came  from luxuries, chiefly liquor and tobacco. Incidentally the increased tax  has caused a decrease of twenty per  cent in the consumption of alcoholics  More tax on unearned incomes of more  than $750 a year and on earned incomes of more than $15,000. The super tar on incomes of more than $25,-  000 has produced $15,000,000. The extra death duties falling on estates of  more than $25,000 yield $35,000,000.  The big feature of tho budget, however, is the tax on the unearned increment of land and this will not be levied until all the land in England, Scotland, Ireland" and Wales is valued by  the state. Experts now are working at  this gigantic task, but will not complete the work for. three or perhaps  four more years. When it is finished  the world will have an opportunity  of seeing a radical departure in taxation methods put into operation. The  new tax, which Is expected to yield  many millions in revenue, will be levied when land is sold or is transferred  on account of death. Oh these occasions twenty per cent of the increase  in value above the state, valuation, provided it is more than ten per cent and  is not ude to improvements, must go  to the state. This is an application of  the Henry George principle which will  be watched with interest the world  over.  taemaaaBsaaaaammaaaawamm  **************************  mmmaam  \**}********* ****** M******  I  "Are you ever troubled with insomnia?" _  "Oh, it amounts to the, same thing.

Brockett nodded eagerly, but Solano  could not shift hia great black eyea  from the general's visage. The old  warrlorlresumed hia speech.  "Mr. Brockett, a key of your cipher,  and a message, written ln tbat cipher,  must be carried, by a messenger on  CHAPTER ||l.  | Brockett returned at out o'clock,  accompanied by Ramon Botano.

All  jflvt of the sheets were in proper  place, but the third carbon from the  lop had been removed, and a fresh carbon substituted.  j General Cole, kindly and   affable,  had the boys feeling thoroughly at  borne before they bad been In hia office for five minutes.   Tbe old soldier  (waa ln cheery spirits, and his genial  mood communicated   Itself   to   bia  young visitors,   who���������-long   counted  among the most ardent admirers   of  lb* general���������were at first Inclined to  baahfalness wben actually m the presence of their   Ideal   fighter.   Solano,  jwbose father hod often spoken of Gen-  fral Cole and his prowess oa shown in  he rush up San Juan Hill, was almost  n rapture* over the unexpected in-  ���������rvtew, while   Brockett,   wondering  pinch oyer the events of the past four  Ears, waa 'trying to figure out what  earth would happen next He waa  t long left ln suspense, for the old  warrior plunged into his reasons for  requiring their attendance in his office.  "Brockett, my boy." said the general, pleasantly enough, but with  something governing the tone of the  calm, even voice���������something that  ��������� seemed to electrify both young men  like the current of a mighty battery  ���������"I believe that I can make yoa���������and  your young friend���������quite useful in the  immediate future."  Solano gasped, astounded, and fixed  his big black eyes upon the general's  face. Brockett nodded, and leaned  forward, expectantly.  "I have had considerable experience  With government and military ciphers," the soldier continued, "and I  must say that yours is the most extraordinary Jumble and most weirdly  mangled collection of hieroglyphics I  ever looked upon. For that very reason, my boy, I am forced to believe  that you have stumbled upon aome-  IbHf of real valae to the army, the I  whom we eaa unhesitatingly rely, to  a person���������a person wbooe name can  be revealed only to tbo moooenger  and one companion���������lo tbe City of  Me**ioe.

Furthermore, you say  that you have learned to speak a'llt*  tie Spanish. How would you like to  carry a message of importance, and a  key to your cipher, as far as the capital of Mexico?"  Brockett choked up, flushed, and  stammered a vogue sentence which he  th al) probability meant to signify ac*  ceptance of the proffered honor. The  general smiled, reassuringly.  "Sou don't say it -very clearly, son,  but your meaning is easily under*  stood. Now, then, something along  tne same- lines.- if you had o companion on this journey, a man who  spoke Spanish by right of birth and  blood, and who could be trusted as absolutely as yourself, the chances ofi  success would be more than doubled.:  Ramon 8olano. I knew, your father. Ij  have heard good reporto of you. If  you are even half the man your father  was a dosen years ago, you are already selected for this commission."  The Cuban gazed straight Into the  eyes of the fighting man, and the gen*;  ���������ral understood.  "Now, boys," the veteran continued;  . "let's get busy without delay.    You  I will please make arrangements with;  ; the folks at home for a somewhat pro-;  j longed absence.   While you are gone,  Mr. Brockett, your mother will receive  your salary���������and perhaps    a    little'  more.  Mr. Solano, you are not in government employ���������"  The Cuban waved a supple hand.  "I have ample resources of my own,  general, and shall consider It a pleasure to expend them on ouch a mission."  "Nevertheless," answered General  Ccle, "the government will take the  liberty ot supplying you both with the  funds needed in the completion of the  enterprise. Enough money to cover  oil probable expenses will be advanced  you, and when you reach the frontier  arms, hprses, general equipments, and  reached for a pen. It waa broken. a*+  'other pen proved equally useless, and  Solano fumbled ln his pocket for a  pencil. A little man seated on the  next stool turned quickly, and proffered him an ink-pencil, one of those  annoying contrivances which were invented a few yeavs ago to displace  both ,lead pencils and fountain pens���������  and which are now a memory, and  nothing more.  "Very annoying, the unpleasant delay," said the little man, amiably. "Per-  jhit me that I am of a little assistance?"  And Solano, as he scribbled Ills brief  cablegram, gave thanks, with true  Latin politeness, to the stocky, ocor-  cheeked Japanese who had walked  post Brockett and himself the previous evening. When the Cuban left  the telegraph office, the Uttle brown  knan caught up the pad of cable  blanks, scrutinised the impressions  left by his message, and, despite the  fact that the cablegram had been written In Spanish,,seemed to have, no  trouble In deciphering Its .meaning.  Whatever Information he gatned, however, seemed to afford but small satisfaction. He smiled mirthlessly,  tOBsed the pad back upon the counter,  and walked out Into tbe buoy thoroughfare.  - Brockett's mother, a sweet-foged,  ^thoroughly feminine, but thoroughly  sensible woman, did not offer any serious objections to her aon'a acceptance  of tbe strange commlasion ao shortly  to be entrusted to hia care. Mra.  Brockett, ln fact, cherished an abid-  ing^belief in the foresight and the  cleverness of her boy���������a belief that he  could take care of himself under almost any circumstances. Bertha  [Brockett, Harry's only slater, waa  -much more worried over the possible  dangers of the journey ^than either her  mother or the young athlete himself.  ���������She forecasted terrors of the road and  hobgoblins of the passes. In her six*  teen-year-old imagination, Mexico  teemed with bandits, Taqui oovages,  and ferocious insurrectos. As Miss  Brockett was not only eloquent, but  extremely pretty, her arguments might  'have dissuaded almost any young ad*  [venturer���������unless the adventurer happened to be her brother. Sisterly  counsels and entreaties have been  wasted on the wandering wtndn for  'many centuries, andVpresumably, ol*  ways will he.  Young Brockett had disjed, bad received some excellent advice from his  mother; and had rebuffed tbe implor-  tng tdster with mueh humor. He waa  glancing over tha evening paper, and  waiting tbe arrival ot Ramon Botano  br ot tbe messenger wbo should bring  blm bit Instructions, wben tbe door  bell tinkled lightly. Bertha, answer-  lag the ben, admitted a stocky, well-  dressed am of middle age���������a swarthy  Uttle fellow, wltb. out cheek crossed  br a broad, indented scar. Tbe boy  ht once remembered tbe Japanese  whom bo b������d *een atop Miss Lawson  on the previous night but gave no  op you another time. -1 will bid you  the honorable good evening."  foe Japanese had hardly departed  when Ramon Solano put in an appearance, much to the delight of the  Brockett family, with whom the Cuban  woo a prime favorite. Greetings exchanged, the boys plunged promptly  Into the subject of mutual Interest,  Solano firing the first gun.  "No message yet from General  Colel**  "Not yet Just had an odd caller,  though."  "The Jap we saw talking with that  Stenographer loot night? I passed him  as 1 came in.

Even If he could hove read  it���������-it waa ln Spanish; too���������that  Wouldn't be of much value to blm."  ''Hardly. I am beginning to do some  extensive thinking about that Jap,  though.. Listen to the proposition he  made me ten minutes ago." And  Brockett rapidly outlined the tempting  offer made by Mr, Yaaimoto.  "Something doing, sure," comment*  led Solanp. "I can see one thing clear-  ;lyv~ He fancied tbat your would sell  'blm a dpullcate of your diamond ciph-  ier���������-though I cannot figure out how he  could get ln touch with that idea so  'quickly.

Then a  'small, solid figure climbed off the legs  ���������of the prostrate prisoner, and scurried In .the direction ot the street-  lamp.

I  am sorry, much, that I say this of my  own countrymen, but it is truth I tell  you. I have reason to believe that my  correspondence, both ln Japanese and  in English, is as you soy it, held up,  read by these not so honorable com*  petltors. So I have come to you, Mr.  Brockett."  T "To me? Why, what can I do for  'you?"  "That shall now be told you, Mr.'  'Brockett I could now make use of  some new, some very difficult correspondence cipher.

"Mr. Yazimoto, you have been misinformed. I cannot imagine where you  gained your information, but it is  wrong, completely wrong.

FROST  Phones 6167, 7741      Telegrams received  Money Orders  Auto traffic in Stanley park was the  chief topic of discussion at the meeting of the Board of Park Commissioners last night, and it was resolved to  amend the bylaw prohibiting automobiles entering the park on Sunday afternoon between tne hours of 2and 5,  making it read between the hours of  2 and 6:30 o'clock. - _,  Commissioner Owen moved tbat  clause 25 of the bylaws prohibiting  autos from entering the park daring  the hours of 2 and 6 o'clock on .tan-  day afternoon be el**ninated. He said  there was not now the same need to  prevent antes entering the park oa  Sunday as formerly. Horses had become used to them, tbere was a large  number of tourists coming to Vancouver who would like to go through the  park on Sunday afternoon, and* they  could oot go at aoy other time. He  thought It was against the Interests of  Vancouver to keen them ttgn^ seetir  tbe park. CcmVmissloner Lees aeconl  ed the motion. >  '  Commissioner Knowltynjji movedVsn  amendment that the bylaw be altered  to make,it read 2 o'clock to 8:30, in-  stead of 6 o'clock. He said there had  been a great number of complaints  lately ln regard to the danger and annoyance caused by autos on Sunday  afternoon, and the question which appealed to him was whether the board  should consider the safety of the residents of the city or the pleasure of  tourists. He thought it was the board's  duty to look after their own people  first CommlMloner ladonsewnded  the amendment. _ v  On being put to tbe vote, there were  two for and two against the amendment, and Chairman Rogers gave his  vote in favor ot altering the bylaw  from 6 o'clock to 6:30. Personally, be  would have preferred that the autos  be kept out of tbe park on Sunday  afternoon until 7 p. m., as there were  many people visiting the park on  Sunday, who could not go there on any  other day, and they should be considered.  The amendment prohibiting altos  from entering the park between tb6  hours of 2 and 6:30 p.m. on Sundays  was declared carried, and will come  into force on July 7.  TELEPHONE CABLE WILL REDUCE RATE TO N. VANCOUVER  Within sixty days there will be commenced the work of laying what is  described as tbe largest telephone cable In British Columbia under water.  Official sanction of the route from  Vancouver to North Vancouver has  been secured from tbe Department of  Marine and Fisheries at Ottawa, and  it is estimated tbat the total cost of  the work will be approximately fifty  thousand dollars. This is perhaps the  heaviest job that has ever been undertaken by the B. C. Telephone Co.  Though this announcement will be of  more than passing interest generally,  what will possess particular attractiveness for subscribers in this city and  across the inlet, is the statement that  the tariff for messages will be reduced from ten to five cents. Altogether one hundred and sixty-eight  wires will be enclosed in the new  cable, which will only be equalled by  the one across the bay from San Francisco to Oakland.  It is expected that intimation will  be received in the course of a few  days tbat tbe monster cable Is en  route from England to the west.
