United States Senator Shelby M. Culloiri, of
Illinois, who haa been senator for nearly thirty
'ears, longer than any other living man. has re*
sently given to the world a most interesting bookv
futitled, "Fifty Years of Public Service,'' in
irhich he discusses the men and measures of his
lime. __,
In the concluding chapter of tho work, he
eaks of his advanced age, of his family and
lis future hope, saying, "I have survived both

|f it now, I do not know where I have obtained
ie strength to survive all these sorrows. I bave

_ physical pain which usually accompanies it. I

We and those who have loved us. in some future world; but from my reading of Scripture", and
Iven admitting that there is a hereafter, I cannot

[nes who have gone before, I do not know but
lat I should look forward with pleasure to the
passing across.' Not having this belief, I am
.uite content to stay where I am as long as I can;
Ind finally, when old Charon apepars to row me
ver the River Styx, I shall be ready to go."
. Another man once aaid, "If I could be sure
|f a hereafter and know that I should meet'the
f>ved one gone before, I would crawl on my hands
ad knees from New York to San Francisco, just
gain that certainty.."   g

lime, we're united in sweet fellowship, holy wor-
���jjrip and thrilling conversation, as^they .talked
about the greatest event of aU the agea���tlw decease which Christ was to accomplish *t Jerusalem. The joy of the disciples was so rapturous, as
hhey communed with their Lord and tho heavenly
I visitors, that peter exclaimed, "Bet us build three
[tabernacles, that we may perpetuateTihis hUssful
joy, foritiagoodlo*i*j^tobehere;"j,
)    Did those disbiples ever doubt the fact of
(Christ's divinity or of heavenly recognition after
that supremo hwr?   No, never.   Thirty years
afterward, Peter said, "For we have not followed
cunningly devised fables, but were eye witnesses
of his majesty/' ���'      . .   .
Let us now im* to the words of the Apostle
"Paul, whowas^ cai^it np into the third heaven,
���who saw and heafa things impossible to describe,
and who ever bad a desire to depart and he with
Christ.  He aaysf'For the Lord Himself shall descend from hea*pn with a shout, with a voice of
the archangel am with the trump of God; and the
dead in Christ ahafi rise first j then we that are
alice, that are/eft, shall together witti them, be
caught up in ne clouds, to meet the Lord in the
air; and so sh/l we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore   comfor/one another with these words."
*What does ye word "together" mean, if not the
���reunion* will all departed loved ones; ���'together"
with convc/s whom ministers have led to Christ,
who shallJe their crown of rejoicing; "together"
with al/��e holy of the ages, dwelling in a perfected /tfjeiety, in a glorious fellowship, forever
Om*'Lord's words, as recorded in the fourteenth, Chapter of St. John's Gospel, are full of
comforting instruction on this theme.   He says,
"Letnot your hearts be troubled.  In my Father's
house are many mansions; if I go and prepare a
i place for you, I will come again and receive you
unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be
J also." Could any words be more direct and literal
Ithan these?   "Receive you unto myself!"   The
lglory of the future life will be in knowing, loving
land living with Christ and all the mighty family
lof God.
Heaven is not a solitude for strangers, but a
lome for all of God's faithful children.
In refusing to believe in future recognition
c��r in a future life, we refuse to believe the words
Df the Son of God, and must therefore reject the
Jible and become like a ship, drifting, without
japtain, rudder, star or compass���a mere derelict,
ioating to the Nowhere and Knownothing Gulf
jf Chaos and Oblivion.
When we lose faith in Jesus and His words,
lere is no other foundation, no Rock of Ages,
lO'hope for the troubled spirit. Without Him,
re can do nothing of immortal value and can
enow nothing of the eternal life.
Just before the martyr Stephen was stoned
to death, the Bible says, "He, being full of the
.Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven,
land saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on
tbe right hand of God." And as the shower of
-stones fell upon him, he cried out to his Lord,
baying, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." Millions
Isince that hour have had similar visions as they
Jwere about to exchange worlds. Skeptical minds

; A Betrospect���Is Our City Growing Better Or Is It Growing Careless t-���Morals
**"^ -.
a Factor Worthy of Consideration.
Whenever the question of a community's morals is raised there are always a !'.
large number of persons who immediately commence to scoff and ridicule the ef- ��� >
forts of those who express a solicitude for the moral life of its citizens collectively. ;:
The cry goes up that each person has the right to choose his or her owjq moral ! \
course; one should have the liberty to do as one may desire so say the wise ones. ��� ���
Why have we health by-laws I Why do we compel people to keep their yards-;
clean? Why do we insist on immediate report to the health authorities of any case ;;
of contagious diseases? Why do we isolate such cases? Why���except to protect \\
others? Is it right and proper (and no one will question it) to compel persons ;���
to protect against transmitting physical disease, then why is it so abnormally wrong \!
to insist that moral disease and vice be suppressed? We do not suggest a paternal ' '���
supervision of public morals, but we most emphatically condemn public conniv- j |
ance with personal vice. '�� ;:
The migration of the demi-monde from Harris Street to'Alexander gtreet ::
roused a storm of protest from a large section of the citizens, not simply because ��� |
they moved, but because it was evident that the move was made as a result of a defi-^;;
nite understanding with tho authorities. There is no question on this point, it is.!!
admitted. The police commission and chief undoubtedly knew of the Whole pro-'�����
poeal, long before it was a��eomplishe<L It is- the natural sequence of the policy ;;
adopted in treating social vie*, viz., '���toleration and segregation/' With this ; I
policy we desire to take issue. There ib not a city on the American continent or < \
5nyw!iw*e ejse, for that mattWr, wlwrtv the p^i^r of -rjegregation Is followed but::
has a nwr^extensive practice of clandeirtme vi^ ^an.the city which supmrssUM I
tb90yilfwte*9V9%*^^ "i , - *��*&* ,   v    **��. ^--L' -';;" T^' i j;
It is arguec^that ^ou cannot blot it out, that the social evil is peculiar in tbii;'
respect an4 it is"usejess to try. Tt is useless to try 9tit% stop meft from stealing o? ;:
from murdering, hnt do we "segregate" it?   Po we prescribe certain areas where :
crimes may be committed under tne supervision of tbe police? 11
* because murder is a distasteful subject, 4o we permit murderers to walk i>
at large and perpetrate further crimes? Not so. ��very law-abiding city expend^ ;:
e\evy possible e#ort to suppress crimer todetect and punish tbngs, thieves and nrar-! -
dSrers, but when it comes to the crime of social evil, forsooth, wejnust pamper it* j;
It is not expected of the authorities that tbey will eliminate this vice, nnfi'
more than it is expected that there will be no more murders, or ^burglaries, but we ' ���:
do feel that the decent citizen has the right to demand that the social vice, whicb Js ; >
a vidlition of law, according to the crwalnAi code, shall be dealt with in the same ;;
manner as other crimes, that it be rigorously suppressed wherever found. ;;
It is not enough to say that some men holding high office are frequenters of |;
these places and must be protected, because no man has the right to violate the lawt ;;
nor has he the right to perpetuate, with impunity, a vice and crime against society,; |
no matter how high the office he may hold. While we realize to the full the difficult;;
and distasteful task set for the mayor and police commissioners in dealing witb tills ���;
problem, we are impelled to say it is their duty to enforce the law, public opinion-;;
demand it, and the moral welfare of the city requires it. ;;
J^ooking backward for fifteen years, we feel we are justified in saying that vice j;
is as rampant in Vancouver today as ever it was. ( It may not be as bad as many ;;
cities, but it might be much better than it is. The police force cannot be held re- ��;
sponsible, they are the instruments of the commissioners, and if ordered to act, ;;
will do so. There is only one apology which can be offered by the commissioners, viz., ;;
that the problem is difficult and distasteful but that is not sufficient excuse for a vio- ;;
lation of public trust. u ;;
Another unmitigated evil and curse is the present race meet in Minora Park. ;;
; Not the speeding of the horses, but the deceitful practices of those  who operate. ;;
The clever, crooked gambling.   The unmanly advantage that is taken of the fool- ;;
ish public. ;;
The present meet will last .about sixty days, a direct violation of the law. This
���' is accomplished by running the meet under a number of different associations and
-; clubs. The promoters have deliberately conspired to evade the law and have little
;; reason to expect sympathy from the public. The present meet is frequented by
;; some of the most notorious crooks on the continent, and are giving the police no
;; end of trouble.
<; What interest nave horse owners or horse lovers in a sportless old sport who
;; brings a string of horses from some track in California or Kentucky? Everyone is
;; aware that these race meets are simply a get-rich-quick game and void of all true
;| sport. A real horse race is a noble sport, but these made-to-order gamester farces
|| usually imposed on a willing but foolish public are a libel to the nanie "horse
|; race." -       ���
|| Sir Montagu Allen says, "I do not know what the authorities are thinking of
| kin Vancouver to permit a sixty days' meet. It means that a gambling c rowd come
11 in here from the United States and take away all the money they can secure. Tf a
|| meeting lasts more than two weeks it degenerates into a betting proposition and
" the 'wise ones' carry off the public's money/'
11 Mr. Hugh Springer says, In 1909 the Montreal Jockey Club derived $76,000.00
11 from American bookmakers and the sale of advance information to poolrooms"
Both these gentlemen are experts and the above is what they say of each
;; Other's track. One is therefore quite safe in saying that race meets such as that
|| in progress at Minora is a disgrace to the community and steps must be taken to
11 make 'such a meeting an impossibility in the future.
Again we say that Vancouver has niaoV. a retrograde movement in sanctioning
such meetings.

A n^wspap^r, generally referred to as V The,
Vancouver We/* has connected with it a dirty
mud-slinger, properly dubbed "Silly Sam."
Ever since his advent to Vancouver bo has been"
one of the most debased characters on the Pacific
eoast.   He has been, and is yet, a mora! monstrosity, an immoral fool.
^ "Silly Sam, ex-sbam-fireman,** never was very;
wise at his best (while asleep), bnt when heioin-I
ed with the would-be rioters (being true to bisin*"
stincts) On Powell street ^grounds, he was well:
thumped on the head with a policeman's club.
Ever since then he has been raving against the t
police and the police commissioners, including the
, mayor.
His brain-box was somewhat cracked by the
club, and so his course of late has been worse than
formerly, if that be possible.
Hia paper, "The Vancouver liie," is out for
blackmail, so far as muck-rake Sam is concerned.
Some years ago he was the tool of a clever public
man, and he worked the blackmail somewhat successfully. This has encouraged him in a second
attempt. "
Apart, from his own nefarious course, he is
again the tool of a designing master, who uses the
coarse mind and filthy heart of Silly Sam to prepare a political or civic opening in the near future.
The rottenest, foulest paper printed in Canada
is "The Vancouver Lie," and all sound thinking
readers say so.
The tobacco spitle, running down the chops of
this rowdy journalist, is but an index to his dirty
mind, and would mark him in any company as
unfit to be associated with dejeent people. Should
he continue to spew and splutter I shall give him
some attention of a character somewhat pointed
and drastic, and historic, too.
(Continued from First Colnmn)
have considered these revelations as the results
of distorted imaginations, or illusive dreams, but,
do we accept the Bible record regarding the de*
parturc of the holy Stephen? If we do, then rec-
o%nition begins often before the spirit has left
the body.
Abraham Lincoln, when he left his home in
. Springfield. 111., starting- for the inaugural ceremonies at Washington, knew nothing of the great
future in governmental affairs, that awaited him,
but he firmly and confindently trusted in the guidance and providence of Almighty God, and, going
forth in tbat faith, he achieved immortal glory,
in this world and in the world to come. So, every
child of God, going out of the present life into the
undiscovered country, "is sustained and soothed
by an unfaltering trust" in the promises of the
infinite Creator and in eJsus Christ, his only begotten Son, who has brought life and immortality
to light in His glorious Gospel, and by His triumphant conquest of death and the grave.

The Babylonians made tbem awe**

Persia had them long before they
were known in England.
The Orientals also had rugs upon

The Illumination of dwellings has a
history. The ancients had no tallow
candles. Strips of papyrus soaked in
pitch and covered with wax were
used by some, and^oll lamps by others.
The Chinese made candleB from seeds
of the talow tree, mixing wax with
It to harden it. In England in 1300
splinters of wood dipped In fat were
used as candles.
The lamp used by the ancients had
many shapes, but only a Single wick,
and gave poor light. The wick was
made of a rush,'and later of tow.

have witnessed in the last few days,"
he says, "what can be done for Winnipeg b*Qi live real estate exchange.
The same spirit of energy and optimism can be set at work and made to
pay dividends for any other town or

who had business establishments on
Fraser street, within the quarter-mile
between Wilson and Ferris roads, and
with what result? An almost unanimous vote ln favor. Why? Within
this short distance, there are six
grocery stores, three barbers, two confectioners, three boot stores, several
real estate offices, etc., all competing

while the very men working on the

was the strength of the opposition

The cistern is almost as ancient as
human thirst. In hot countries It has
always been necessary to store up
water for future use, especially as
against the season of drought.
Coal as a fuel has been ln use several centuries. In 1316 the English
parliament sought to prohibit Its use
on the [score ot health, but the proclamation availed nothing. Coal was
used in smelting furnaces as far back
as .-170.5. American coal was not used
much until about a century ago. It is
said tbat the Indians knew of the
"black stones" and made pipe bowls
of them. Coal was for a long time
difficult to sell, as people supposed
that It would hot burn. Signed certificates that "stone coal will burn"
bad to be given to intending purchasers. Hard coal was first successfully used in a Schuylkill furnace In
1814. Tne coal cost $28 a ton. The
men could not ignite it. In exasperation they pitched a quantity of it into
the furnace, shut the doors and went
about some other work. Some hours
later the  furnace doors were found

recreation, In a manly and health-inspiring manner.
Meanwhile, those placed In temporary authority here in South Vancouver, by the votea of their fellow
citizens, should more fully realise the
serious responsibility they incur, by
granting a pool room license to premises in the direct view of the South
Hill public schools. It is not for want
of protest that this harm has been
done; but there is still plenty of time
before the School reopens for other
premises to be insisted upon before
the license takes effect.
, It is time that Parliament took into
serious consideration the whole question of saloons and pool rooms; for
the city of Vancouver Is rendered hid
eous and unsavoury in the sight of
all who have Canada's future welfare
at heart, by the piteous sight of Canada's youth continually passing in
Canana's youth continually passing In
and out of these places of resort.

A converted cowboy is reported to  have given this idea of what religion  is: "Lots of folks that would really  like to do right think that servin' the  Lord means shoutln' themselves  hoarse pralsin' his name. Now I'll tell  you how I lok at that I'm workln'  here for Jim. Now If I'd sit around  the house here tellln' what a good  fellow Jim is, and slngbi* songs to  him, and gettin' up in the night to  serenade him, I'd be doin* just like  what lots of Christians do'; but I  wouldn't suit Jim, and I'd get fired  mighty quick. But when I buckle on  my btraps and hustle among the hills  and see that Jim's herd is all right,  and not siifferln' for water and feed,  or bein' off the range and branded by  cattle thieves, then I'm servin' Jim  as he wants to be served."  2436 MAIN STREET  (I)EWE**N 80i and BROADWAY)  First-class Repairing a Specialty  Boots and Shoes.made to order.  ��������� yy  ?** "i--��������� y:'  A|so Corner of Sth Avenue  ���������6SI������l������IS6������l*l������ISI**a������l������l������t9<������4a������0->0*������l������tei*l������l������t*<������������������������  a  Outr Opinion on the  [e Question  We know we biive your confidence and we have  maxie oui^l ves worthy of it by handling the very  best mercharrdise in our line. -;������*���������*    |  We tre faimlisv with tn^ :  ^..,^.^,^11^^  Inotaropinion  tf|lB|^  'fSllJI*.

Two yeara ago the prospect of any  extension of sheep raising ln Canada  appeared very remote. Except In the  case of breeders of pure bred flocks,  tbe prevailing attitude regarding the  possibilities to be attained through a  developments of the Industry was  largely one of Indifference and unconcern. Today, however, a very  great change In point of view is manifested, particularly on the part of fer  ment of a sheep expert to assume  the figures exceeded 90 for all de-  charge, under the Live Stock Com-  scriptions of free stack, el* Ontario  . ���������        -.   .    .

This crop suffered from the exceptionally severe  winter in Ontario and from the lack of  sufficient snow protection in Alberta,  whilst the cold, wet spring has been  adverse to recovery and.good growth.

This  change has  doubtless  been  brought  about on the one hand by the Increasing domestic consumption of mutton  and lamb.    On the other hand, bow-  ever. It has with equal certainty been  hastened and confirmed .as a result of  the Investigations of the Sheep Commission of the. problems confronting  the sheep farmer in this country and  of the manner in which a decadent but  Government was further strengthened  by the suggestive lectures delivered  by Mr. Rltch during the early monthB  of the present year at meetings attended by him in the Maritime provinces and later at, meetings'attended  by Messrs. Ritch and MacRae in the  provinces of Saskatchewan, Alberta  and British Columbia.   "The Govern*  ment Is doing something," waa.Jhe  appreciative comment of a Western  s*t**p man*,, after-_tbe concluskwr.idf  onV of the recent,: and tM*  statement is expressive Of the temper of-sheep growers, both in the  East and In the West, who are gratified to know that in their interest*  something definite Is now being undertaken.  s An announcement bas already been  made regarding the action of the  Minister tn making provision for a>  special sale, during the -months of  September and-October next, of pure  bred rams and grade ewes in "the  Maritime provinces and ln British Columbia. It has been ascertained that  these provinces have need, not only  of selected sires, but also of female  stock to serve as the foundation of  grade flocks for., the production; of  markable Jambs. The co-operation of  the Dominion Sheep Breeders' Association has been secured to assist in  this work and a grant of 915,000 -has  been made direct to tbe association,  to be expended for this purpose, in  accordance with "certain condition's  imposed by the Minister. The responsibility for the expenditure of this _. _ ,  grant has been delegated to a special | dustry,  committee of tbe association, ln con  junction wltb tbe secretary, Mr. A. P. CROPS ANP  Westervelt, and the members of this  committee, acting in association with  sltlon of Professor of Animal Hue  bandry in the New Hampshire Col-  lege, he has'devoted himself especially to experimental work in feeding  and breeding and has made a study,  under very advantageous  conditions,  of problems relating to tbe production and marketing of wool.   He has  organized,   amongst   the   farmers ot  New     Hampshire,     a     co-operative  scheme for the sale  of   their   wool  clip, and, in addition, has undertaken  considerable   extension   work   which  has given him very valuable experience.   He is now recognized In Canada and in the United -State* as a  specialist in sheep husbandry and haa  won for bia work the attention of  some of tbe most eminent experts in  breeding and experimentation.      - -  Mr. Arkeil la to join tbe staff ,of  the Live Stock  Branch  before . the  middle <ot the current month and will  proceed the-provlncee  of aekstcbewau and Alberta to advise with the woll growers regarding  the handling of tbelr present season's  clip   and   to .make   preliminary arrangements for the undertaking of an  extensive experimental shipment oj  Canadian woll to Oreat Britain in  1913.  A syatematic collection of wool  samples will also be commenced immediately to provide for illustration  exhibits of wool, requests for whicb  have already beep received from several of our Agricultural Colleges and  Winter Pair Boards. ' A comprehensive effort to systematize and Improve  the methods employed in, connection  with the production and lisle of wool  will, undoubtedly, greatly assist in encouraging ' abeep farmers throughout  the Dominion and in stimulating a  wider Interest in the business.

Twenty minutes later the messengers of state were buried tn a mass  of bowling fans at the Jersey City  ban park, where ancient rivalries with  th* Newark team were being Bottled.

Newark, to the Intense delight of  Harry Brockett, draw ahead and won  out while Solano, after declaring that  his friend was a base-born Idiot, that  tiie umpires were a porch-climber and  a door-mat thief, respectively, and that  tha JOrsey City msnager was solid  ���������ton* above the shoulders, calmed  down, smote a fat man two rows  'ahead of him with a bag of peanuts,  and looked Innocently at the setting  western sun. Then the boys, vastly  refreshed and cheered by the afternoon's diversion, mingled . with tha  outgoing myriads. As they poured  across the field In the ruck, they  crossed the track of the Newark players, bearing their bats triumphantly  away. A gray-sleeved arm reached  out from the group of victors and  caught Brockett by the shoulder. The  boy turned and looked into tba grim,  .weather-beaten face of Iron Man Joe  McGinnity.
