British Columbia Harbor stretches from Port  Moodv to Prince Rupert, and is the greatest harbor iii this world. Port Jackson, Rio Janeiro and  all the other seaports in actual use, when put together, are not equal to this mammoth land-locked  harbor of over 500 miles in length.  On one side it is walled by the mainland, and  on the other it is bounded by a wall of countless  islands.  At irregular intervals there are openings  through which ships of all sizes can go safely to  the ocean, or come therefrom.  For beauty, magnitude, scenic glory, enchanting  bewilderment and safety, this water stretch, which  I prefer to call "British Columbia Harbor," is unequalled. It is more: it is a land-locked canal,  compared with which the much-talked-of Panama  canal is dwarfed into pigmic insignificance.  The   trip   there   through   reminds one of the  ByG.A.O,  Street Improvement  < ���������  Notwithstanding much complaint and numerous criticisms. Vancouver is making rapid progress in street improvement. True, many apparent blunders ,are being made, such as paving  streets, laying sidewalks and constructing sewers while the widening of s������id streets is pending.  Commercial drive is a good example. Upon investigation, it will be found that all new and rapidly growing cities are subject to similar mistakes. They seem to be unavoidable. Patience is  essential under such circumstances. In time these mistakes will be largely corrected and forgot-  J \ ten in the presence of general progress and stupendous developments.  Harbor Construction  The proposed construction of harbors in Vancouver has given an impetus to improvement  throughout the city and province. South Vancouver and New Westminster are fully awake to the  commercial value of harbor accommodations, and are getting busy.   The Fraser River Develop-  < I  ' made in the world's commerce.  preparing  Infant Industries  Thousand'Islands of the St. Lawrence, of the north     .. ness people if it could be kept at home  Before manufacturing reaches imposing magnitude, it has to begin and pass through many ; |  X experiments with attendant ups and downs. The Manhood of Industry must be preceded by a  '* term of Infancy. Vancouver has not yet produced the Infant. Strange that a city of such enter- !!  prise should neglect an essential of permanent success. Today we are losing millions of dollars by ;;  the absence of manufacturing industries. We fully concur with the World, of the 23rd inst., in the  following:  "A sum aggregating at least seventy-five thousand dollars a day is being sent away froru Van-.*|  couver for manufactured products and the necessaries of life.    Leaving out of the consideration ������  the question of how long Vancouver can stand the heavy drain, it is obvious that this large amount  of good Vancouver money put into circulation daily in other centres would greatly help our busi-  of Lake Huron, of the Chishima Islands, or of the  great Oriental "Inland Sea."  I have taken all the great island water trips  of this world. The best by all odds is the 500-mile  trip through the unequalled British Columbia  Harbor.  Men and money provide the little Panama  canal, but God and eternity have given Canadians  this unapproachable Western waterway which  could carry all the fleets of this round globe.  Here-is an indescribable crowning glory of inestimable value to the Grand Trunk Pacific tourist  enterprise.  E.

Which stands for British liberty  To white, brown, red and black.  "The loss to Vancouver is not alone that of the cash withdrawn from the trade arteries, but is  also the loss of the value of this money in developing our enterprises and resources, in creating  more money. This materially increases the exhausting effect of this continual financial bloodletting."  Notice  .

Now. let's go and  attend to the rations."  The boys did full justice to tbelr  lunch, and sauntered back to tbelr  seats. Their maps and papers lay  apparently undisturbed, but Solano  contracted bis black eyebrows significantly as he examined the tlme-tabJd  It had been opened, and the blading  stamp had been torn in two.  "Still after us, old man," remarked  the Cuban. "No, no, don't fasten any  Sherlock Holmes gate upon the other  passengers. Don't show a sign of surprise or worry. That would be playing right Into their band. Listen,  cow: when we reach Jersey City, let's  make a lightning exit without waiting  for the train to reach the west-shore  terminals. Let's take a chance on get-  , ting our clothes dusty. If anyone is  fool enough to rush out after us. we  have him spotted���������It he stays on the  tram we have a lot more chance to  get away before he can land ta the  station."  "Wish we had hopped off al Philadelphia," sighed Brockett. "In a city  of that size we might have made a  better escape, and I happen to know  the streets of the burg pretty well.  Well have to make the best of it now,  though. The moment we hit the sod  weir run so last we'll discover several new streets in Jersey City."   ; '  Solano was silent for a few minutes, and then his features lighted up.  "Do you happen to have an Eastern  league schedule about you?" he demanded. ��������� -..  "Think 1 have. Oot one with schedules of twenty leagues In It���������this note*  book;  What's the IdearV  "Is Jersey City playing at bom* to-  oay?". y ;,.: ���������   .        :.;.���������  "Yes���������-playing Newark.

Well, bow's this ft  supplement to our first Idea, then;  right out to tbe ball park, buy bleach*  er seats, and mix In with tbe crowd.  It's hard, awfully hard, to locate anybody In a ball park, and tbe task would  be twice as bard for some foreigner,  wbo wouldn't even know bow to find  bis way around tbe stands. We wanted to kill time In Jersey City till evening-���������where could we kill It more  pleasantly or more safely?"  "Some of your Ideas, dear Ramon,  denote almost human Intelligence. It  listens good to me. But, say���������-we are  just rolling into Jersey City now. Wait  a bit���������she'll slacken a'llttle���������NOW!"  The boys sprang from their chairs  and bolted down the "aisle. An astonished negro tried to, intercept tbem  with a cry of "Hold on boss���������we ain't  4n de station yet!" but only received  a shoulder and an elbow as reward.  Solano unhesitatingly leaped, struck  on a gravelly spot, went to bis knees.  snd then shot forward on bis palms.  Brockett swung off a shade more carefully, landed fairly on his feet, and,  after staggering a doxefi yards, regained his balance.  "Any bones broken, Ramon?"  "Nothing but a suspender and my  pet pipe. Little gravel in my knees  snd bands. I'll bet they think we sre  a pair of escaped crooks, but they  can't back up the train. Hurry���������-let's  get a vigorous move on!"  Twenty minutes later the messengers of state were burled In a mass  of howling fans at the Jersey City  ball park, where ancient rivalries with  tbe Newark team were being settled.  They picked a position halfway from  the front of the bleachers, and the  swarm of fanatics all around tbem  formed a veil that would have baffled a Vldocq and an X-ray to pierce  through. Here, safe from pursuit or  treachery, they gave themselves up to  their favorite delight, and enjoyed the  battle to tbelr hearts' content Both,  of course, were absolutely non-partisan when tbey entered the park���������-  the troubles of Newark and Jersey  City were nothing to them. Before the  game was half an Inning old, however,  they had become rabid "bugs," and  were abusing each other in the glorious fashion that only lovers of the  game can know. Solano became an  ardent admirer of the Jersey City  club; Brockett allied himself with  Newark, and each cast virulent aspersion on the other's judgment, opinions  and personality.  Newark, to the intense delight of  Harry Brockett, drew ahead and won  out, while Solano, after declaring tbat  his friend was a base-born idiot, that  the umpires were a porch-climber and  a door-mat thief, respectively, and tbat  tha Jersey City manager was solid  stone 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 the  outgoing myriads.   As they  poured  across the new in the ruck,' they  crossed the track of the Newark players, bearing tbelr bate triumphantly  away. A gray-sleeved arm reached  out from tbe group ot victors and  caught Brockett by the aboulder. Th*  boy turned and looked into the grim,  weather-beaten face of Iron Man Jo*  McOlnnity.  "You're young Brockett, tbe colleg*  alugger, aren't you?" growled the  Iron Man, ln what he meant for an  amiable and conciliatory tone. "Uh  bub. I thought so. You aee, son, I  don't often forget faces, specially when  they belong to kids who did wbat you  did to my pitching two yeara ago. I  rather expected you'd take up the  game when you left college."  Scores of curious fans were staring  way atation met their view. As tbey;  descended the stairs the clangor of anj  approaching train was heard. Putting:  on a buret of speed tbey scurried for-,  ward, slapped tbelr coins upon the;  ticket-window, and leaped upon a car'  without the fraction ot a second to-  spare.  ��������� '.-.'  Once seated and their breath recovered, they bent over the strangely de-j  livened  letter.    Inside the envelope!  was pne small sheet of note-paper.)  and across the sheet was written, to:  Brockett's.own cipher:  "WP TC Pin Pos W SH AB SHi  2BH HR EEHRE 2BH BB SH PO  PO PO TC TC BA SB TC W BA SH  PO PO WP." ;  "Which reads," translated Brockett,;  "You sre beginning well���������look out forj  Kelly." 1  CHAPTER IX. j  "Outside the gentleman mentioned!  In the song, and a number of good hall*  players," aald Solano, "I never heard  of any Kellys. There appears to be  something doing. Harry."  '.'That Is evident st first sight," responded Brockett. "It look* as If both  our friends and our enemies were  hanging to our track. Aa far as  tracing us Is concerned, I'd have  thought lt rather harder for our friends  rto keep close watch over us than either the Japanese or the big German."  "I can figure out," commented So*  ,lano, "juat bow sheer luck would help  '.anyone to locate us ln Jersey City.  (Anybody who knew our tastes  and  (To be Continued)  Phone: Fairmont777  A.

The  grating voice ot Joe McOlnnity carried a long distance, and if tbere waa  anyone within twenty yarda who  hadn't heard bim that person must  have been atone deaf from childhood.  Brockett, nervous and agitated at this  loud announcement of his name, yet  secretly pleased at tbe patronage of  the great old warrior, flushed' and  slammered, while 'Solano's eyes, bespoke chagrin and apprehension.  ' "Tell you something,'Brockett," the  Iron Man went on, "I know a ball  player when I eee one, and If you want  to take up the game you don't have  to start wltb any Class Z leagues. I'll  take you on tomorrow, If you want.  Come see me' ln Newark during tbe  day. will you?"  ' Solano's eyes telegraphed a message, and Brockett understood. Speaking in a voice loud enough to be  heard halfway to the grandstand, be  answered: "Yes. Two o'clock be all  right? I'll be there," and then, shaking the Iron Man's band, retreated  once more to tbe shelter of the crowd.  "Annoying luck, that." remarked  Solano, "it anyone was bunting us In  that ball park it's a certainty that Mr.  McGlnnity tipped us off In grand style.  You made the proper play, though, by  making an appointment���������which we  will be unable to keep. It may lead  some one of our faithful followers  astray."

Some  desert parts of California and Arizona  are well suited to the cultivation of  the date palm; but the one drawback  is that the natural heat cannot be depended on to bring the fruit to perfect  ripeness. But Prof. Freeman's invention, which is a simple affair, ripens  the dates perfectly and renders thern  as sweet and delicate in flavor as the  naturally ripened fruit, and far superior as a table delicacy to the dried  and pressed dates with which we are  familiar. The industry in tbe southwest promises to become of great importance.  PMONE: Collingwood 81*  Box 236 Mceay P. O.  KEEFER SUPPLY STORE  ERNEST SHAW, D. C.  (Robert J. Burgess kMgr.)

Once a poet wrote a sonnet  All about a pretty bonnet,  And a critic sat upon it,  (On the sonnet.  Not the bonnet)  Nothing loath.  And as if it were high treason,  He said, "Neither rhyme nor reason  Has it.   And it's out of season!"  Which?   The Bonnet?  Or the bonnet?  May be both.  "'TIs a feeble imitation  Of a worthier creation,  An aesthetic innovation!"  Of a sonnet,  Or a bonnet?  This was hard.  Both were put together neatly,  Harmonizing very sweetly,  But tbe critics crushed completely,  Not the bonnet,  Or the sonnet,  But the bard.  OUR YOUNG FOLK8  If I Were You  If I a little girl could be,  Well���������Just like you,  With lips as rosy, cheeks as fair,  Such eyes of blue, and shining hair,  What do you think I'd do?  I'd wear so bright and sweet a smile,  I'd be so loving all the while,  I'd be so helpful with my hand,  So quick and gentle to command,  .  You  soon  would see  That every one would turn to say,  " 'TiB good to meet tbat child today."  Yes, yes, my girl; that's what I'd do  If I were you.  Or, if I chanced to be a boy,  Like some I know,  With crisp curls sparkling in the sun,  And eyes all beaming bright with fun���������  Ah, if I could be so,  I'd strive and strive with all my might  To be so true, so brave, polite,  That in me each one might behold  A hero, as in days of old.

Poor little Cuba seems to be almost  as discontented under independent  government as she did under Spaniard  rule. Her population, however, is so  diversified both as to races and conditions that much unrest is probably to  be expected.  Just now when armed intervention  by the United States to quiet local  turmoil seems to be necessary, there  are whisperings of bad practices by  corporations not Cuban, though related to Cuban industries.  One of the rocks on which the government of Cuba is in danger of being wrecked is the financial one;  When Cuba started as a republic ten  years ago she did so free from debt  But she has since borrowed and  spent S51,500,000, and also her $35,-  000,000 a year regular Income. The  funds of the island are at their lowest  ebb. A loan of $15,000,000 obtained  for the sewering, paving and Improve*  ment of the water system in Havana  and the installation of such a system  in CienfuegoB is gone with the exception of $3,000,000. Another $3,000,000  of the loan, opponents of the administration declare, cannot be accounted  tor. ������������������;.' ���������'.���������>-���������?,"    ���������:"���������.!��������� :-y- '���������'  It is now hinted that tbe big cane  sugar interests, knowing that it Cuba  were annexed to the United States,  the sugar duty would come off, have  been, along with certain mining Interests, indirectly fomenting the disturbances which now afflict the two  republics.  Already the situation in Cuba has  become so critical tbat American  troops and marines are on the spot  ready for bloody action the moment  orders are given.  Tommy has climbed up onto the  sloping barn roof, but the shingles  had proven damp and presently he  lost his hold and was slipping down.  "Lord save me," he prayed. Then his  clothes caught and he added, "You  needn't brother, Lord. I've caught on  a nail."

JOHN W. McDONELL.  Per SYDNEY A   LAKE.  Agent.  Dated 17th May. 1912.  Ever since the time of which  Chaucer wrote, English people have  been fond of meat pudding. Only recently has It been discovered, however, that the substitution of corn-  meal for white flour makes a much  more delicious dish than the time-  honored pudding. The receipt requires two pounds of round steak, or  other lean beef, two cups of corn-  meal, one cup of flour, one-half pound  of suet and one tablespoonful of salt.  Chop the suet fine; mix it thoroughly with cornmeal, flour and salt, and  add enough water to make a stiff  dough. Roll out the dough to a uniform thickens of a little less than a  half an inch, and place it on a cloth.  Cut the beef Into smal pieces and season with pepper and salt. Put the  meat on the dough, draw the cloth  together and tie it tightly, so that the  meat will be completely enclosed by  the dough.   Boil for live hours.

The correspondents of the office report that in the Maritime provinces and generally throughout eastern Canada the weather of June continued cold and wet, and growth was  therefore slow. In the Northwest  provinces the weather of June waa  hot and dry, and rain was badly needed at 'the beginning of Jaly. Rains  have since fallen, however, and conditions have improved. Prospects for  spring sown crops are generally favorable.  According to revised figures obtained at the end of June the total  area under wheat this year is 10,-  047,300 acres, compared with 10,377,-  159 acres as returned by the census  of 1911. The area sown to fall  wheat in 1911 was 1,097,900  acres, but winter killing has reduced  this area to 781,000 acres. The area  sown to oats is estimated at 9,494,600  acres, compared with 9,233,550 acres  in 1911, and to barley 1,449,200 acres,  as aga'nst 1,403,969 acres in 1911. In  the three Northwest provinces spring  wheat ' covers 9,029,000 acres, aa  against 8,946,965 acres in 1911, the  Increase being in Saskatchewan and  Alberta. Including fall wheat the total wheat acreage in the three provinces is 9,246,100, compared with  9,301,2$3 acres in 1911, the decrease  being accounted for by the large area  of fall wheat winter killed in Alberta.  Oats ill the three provinces occupy  5,037,000 acres and barley 826,100  acres, as compared with last year's  census figures of 4,563,203 acres for  oats and 761,738 acres for barley.  Whilst not equal to the exceptionally high figures recorded this time  last year, the condition of spring sown  crops 1b generally good. The highest  figures for spring cereals are recorded ln Prince Edward Island and British Columbia, the per cent condition  ranging, from 97 to 99 in the former  and from. 90 to 96 in the.latter pro*  vlnce, the average for the Dominion  being from 80 to 89. Fall wheat  remains low, being only 70 for Can  ado, 73 for Ontario and 71.6 for Alberta.) Last year tbe condition was  also low, viz: 75 for Canada; the  average of the four years, 1908-H,  was 81.5. Spring wheat is 89.73 p. c  compared with 94.78 last year and  88.25 the four years' average; oats  86.43 against 94.46 in 1911 and 90.42  average; barley 88.58 against 93 In  1911 and 89.28 average. Rye Is 87.84,  peas are 80.08 and mixed grains 84-98.  Hay and clover show a condition per  cent of 85.59, against 84.97 in 1911;  alfalfa 90.59 against 82.31 and pasture 95.66 against 90.77. In the three  Northwest provinces spring wheat,  oats and barley range from 80 to 88  p. c, figures which are close to tbe  average of the four years, 1908*11,  and which are below last year's exceptional records by from about 10 to  '.5 p. c.  The estimated numbers of live  stock show further decreases except  as regards horses and dairy cattle,  the former being 70,400 and the latter 14,500 more than last year's estimates. The census figures of 1911  are not yet available. The condition  of all live stock in Canada is uniformed excellent, the number of  points being 97 horses, 98 cattle, 97  sheep aud 96 swine.

Photo-plays produced by the moving  picture manufacturers of the present  day are of the highest quality and  most educational features. With the  advance of the moving picture world,  productions are not of the dime novel  feature as they were in the beginning  and should not be barred the children,  as is the case of non-frequenters. It  has been decided by some of the biggest institutes of Great Britain, Canada and the United States of America  to be. one of the best systems in the  present educational sphere. One's own  common sense will teil them that  seeing one of these perfectly produced  educational features will become impressed more vividly on one's mind  than all the reading to be got.  It will be my ambition to procure  every feature of this character that  is delivered to Vancouver. Apart from  these education films, the present productions of drama and comedy plays  go through such a thorough examination by the censor boards that nothing is passed but what will suit the  most refined of tastes.

Brantford, July 20.���������With the arrival  at Brantford last week of a surrey  party for the Canadian Northern railway, the first step in the company's  projected line from Hamilton westward to Detroit seems to have been  taken. The party, which came here  from Dundas, included engineers and  began at once to locate the route  through this district.  Sir William Mackenzie, some time  ago, said that it was in his mind to  build through to tbe boundary at Detroit in the future, but the railway president then said that the matter had  not proceeded beyond the embryo  stage. Things have evidently moved  quickly during the last few weeks, as  the surveyors who are here clearly  mean business, though they are not  communicative as to the scope of the  work they have come to carry through.

The Putumayo river is about 1,000  miles long, and it was not the main  stream of this little-known river, but  the two northerly affluentB, which was  the theatre of the atrocities described  in the Blue Book, to which many men  from Barbados, British subjects, bore  witness.  The Blue Book contains a preliminary report, presented in January, in  which Sir Roger said that the natives  almost everywhere bore evidence of  being flogged, in many cases brutally  The marks of tbe lash were not confined to men or adults. Women, arid  even children, were more than once  found with their limbs scarred with  welts left by the thong of twisted tapir  hide, which waa the chief instrument  used for coercing and terrorising tbe  native population of the region  Worst Charge* Warranted.  The crimes charged against many  of the men In the employ of the Peruvian-Amazon Company were of a moat  atrocious kind, including murder, assaults on women, and constant flogging. The conditions revealed fully"  warranted the worst charges brought  against the agents of th?' Peruvian-  Amazon Company and <ts methods of  administration. The United Statea is  co-operating with England in uncovering and suppressing these atrocities.  The English suffragettes lave pressed their campaign ot attacking leading  statesmen till the task of furnishing  them with guards has been made necessary. There is grave danger that  the tactics employed will prove the  downfall of the suffragette cause.  China is in a serious turmoil. It now  seems quite probable that the empire  will be split in halves. The task of  reconciling the radicals and conservatives Is fully as difficult as was found  to be the case at the Republican convention at Chicago.  2m MAIN STREET  PHONES: Fairmont 496,497  **������*��������������� * ***>*<****** ���������*������������������*���������'*'������������������������������������*"���������.". <'������*������<*������0������������-t'4'i-M--*-*������'M-*l-*I'*I"l"l-������4"ll'l"l-'l'-l1'll������*  Advertise in THE CALL  ANATOMICAL SHOE- STORE  MMK HOUSTON, traftrlesor  6352 Fraser St., Opposite 50th Avenue  Repirs a .Specialty  Harness anal Shoomaklng  SUUct) Vo-kma-isMs Csarratcet]    A trial Sottdte*  The murder of the noted gambler  Rosenthal in New York recently has  stirred the authorities to vigorous ac  tion.

Exptrt Woodsman Reports on Forest  ���������^ Conditions.  . The timber of the Hudson Bay region (the southern part of the old district of Keewatin) is a topic that has  lately become of considerable interest.  Interesting observations with regard  to it are found in the 1911 report of  the Director of Forestry, published as  part of the annual report of the Department of the Interior for 1911.  These are in continuation of the report on the timber along the proposed  line of the Hudson Bay railway, published as Bulletin No. 17 of the Forestry Branch.  Mr. T.-.-J. Blackford, an experienced  woodsman, acquainted with conditions  In the north, reports on the conditions  of the forest around Oxford House, his  explorations covering some 5400  square miles of the country. Of this  only about 1600 square miles bears  merchantable timber; on the remaining 3800 miles the timber has been  burned. There is abundant evidence  that the whole country was originally  forested with spruce, tamarack, Jack  pine, balsam fir, birch and poplar, and  on islands which have by their position been protected from tire are dense  stands of trees two or three feet in  diameter.  PULPWOOD  EXPORT,  1911.  What Canada Could Do With Wood  She Exports.  Fifty-six per cent of the pulpwood  cut in Canada during the year 1911  was exported to the United States.  This is the fact shown by statistics collected by the Forestry Branch of the  Department of the Interior.  The total quantity of pulpwood cut  in Canada during 1811 was 1,520,227  cords. The quantity exported amounted to 847,939 cords, while the remaining forty-four per cent (672,288 cords)  was manufactured in Canada.  The value of this pulpwood was *>5,-  340,592 (an average of $6.29 per cord).  Had the wood been retained in Canada and manufactured here, it is estimated that the value would have been  increased to about $15,000,000.  Had Canada manufactured into wood  pulp all the pulp wood she produced,  she could have had enough to supply  a hundred and twenty-two mills of  the average size of those operating  in Canada, instead of the fifty-four she  now has. Quebec could have supplied sixty per cent more mills than  she is now doing, and New Brunswick  could have doubled the number of her  mills.

For the first half of 1912 Winnipeg  stands second only to Toronto In value  of building permits, the figures running over $2,000,000 ahead of the record of the corresponding , period of  1911, while the percentage of increase  is even greater than Toronto's. It is  conceded on every hand that Western  prosperity has been . reflected with  striking accuracy by the present industrial exhibition and centennial festivities.  G. T. P. at Biggar.  BIGGAR, Sask.���������Hundreds of carloads of steel rails have just been  brought into the Biggar district for use  of the G. T. P. construction camps for  the completion of the Biggar-Calgary  branch, line, which railway officials  state is likely to become in a few  months one of the most important  branch lines in this section of the  West, tapping as it will 350 miles of  rich farming country, besides the extensive producing coal regions 50 miles  southwest of the town.  The extraordinary railway development of the Biggar district is attributed by insiders to the record expansion of the district along industrial  and agricultural lines, the wheat export having increased from 5000 to  300,000 bushels in two years, and the  crop prospects for 1912 under present favorable conditions being about  double the, figures of last year. There  is pressing need, for at least two more  grain elevators in addition to the one  already installed.  Full Speed-Ahead at Moose Jaw.
