The press has gone one better, and made the  doctor say many things, and; much he never even  dreamed of. ** **.  Young, inexperienced reporters come upon the  stage and try their best to make reportorial  strikes. At times they succeed beyond expectation. This Schaefer Chemical Soul case is one of  this sort.. The learned doctor made a. scholarly  reference to chemism in its various applications,  and, lol the newsmen made a "big talk, never intended by the scholar.   .  As a matter of fact, Doctor Schaefer said nothing new. What he said has been said a thousand times during the last two hundred years. He  .and others speculate and wonder as to possibilities, but affirm nothing new, or striking. The  Bpeculmtions may 6e striking, and the young newsmen grab at the will 'o tiie wisp, and give it out as  a solid fact, substance, or scientific conclusion.  And the whole world stares astounded. ���������  * Doctor Schaefer, like every other living man,  is absolutely ignorant of the nature of the human ;  soul. By * ���������soul" I presume he means the "spirit." ;  Not even in the realisms of speculation has any  man in human life perceived or apprehended the  nature of spirit or life. Np man is capable of  auch a perception.  In no case has any chemist produced life from  that which he knows to be dead, inorganic matter.  No man has ever arrived there by any method of  chemical analysis or synthesis. I make this statement knowing well the attainments to date of the  ���������chemical world.  No man has ever arrived,, by any- system of  chemical composition or decomposition, at a point  wherein he could say "this is life produced from inorganic death.  Let us suppose a case most favourable to the  matorjalistic chemists. Let us suppose that some  ' clever man either by accident or by a series of  carefully made experiments, should produce what  he and other chemists would call organic life. This  world would at once demand to be told, or assured  of several things.

In old pictures this month was repre-  * executive authorities, might be borne out by a careful study of the situation. ;;   **}*?$ hj the figure of a man sowing wheat, or  What is essential to elevators is: First, a proper site having good foundations \ j  ��������� to bear the tremendous weight of millions of bushels of grain, and adequate track- j j  ;; age facilities. Secondly, deep water approach, suitable for large, deep draught j j  ���������; freighters, so that the vessel can load direct from the elevators. Thirdly, the june- ] j  ; j tion of the water and rail transportation should be as far inland as possible, con- ������|  ;; sistent with safety to shipping.  UNION MADE  BACHELOR  CIGARS  Ask the man who smokes them.  Port Moody undoubtedly has all of these advantages. There is ample level and i I  solid ground to accommodate an extensive   system   of  elevators  with sufficient '*',  trackage, and the channel at this point is deep and safe, so that a huge freighter *!  may with perfect safety steam up, without assistance of tugs, and load from the * j  elevator direct.  Again, there is no point contiguous to deep water which reaches so far inland ;',  and which, at the same time is convenient to the C. P. B.  It should be remembered that it would cost the C. P. E. a large sum to move tr *;  ainloads of grain over that section between Port Moody and any other point in ���������;  Vancouver. In fact so congested is the traffic now that the movement of freight in :;  i that area is considered as demanding terminal charges, so that the company are :;  :; desirous of avoiding this congestion, and heiice the decision in favor of Port ::  J Moody on the part of the officials who have the matter in hand, a decision, we repeat, ; I  I which is eminently wise and founded on sound logic, and which, no doubt, will be, :'.  or has been, confirmed by the executive head.  The establishment of these elevators cannot be delayed much longer.   We know ;;  I it is the intention of the C. P. R. to build them during the coming year and that ;;  **. they need have no fear of competition from the government, because the policy of ;;  a sample market, adopted by the Master of Trade and Commerce and endorsed by ;;  the Grain Growers, largely eliminates the necessity of a government elevator, and  '.'��������� places the elevator business on a sound footing.  We would also point to the fact that the C. P. R. will have completed its double j j  ^racking to Calgary about the same time as that proposed for the completion of the j \  elevators and of the opening of the Panama Canal, which, to say the least, is a j ���������  remarkable coincident. '< ���������  It would appear that at last Port Moody is to come into her own, and that those  :! who retained their confidence in this old town will reap richly the reward for their i *,  '. long wait. Nothing can stop the development of our great harbor, and all parts !!  !: of it, from east to west, will be benefited.  ���������������  4 fH^WfWWW-W-K-Wti- **t*M>**4<*****4******4>4'4****4r*W***4'*M  with a basket of chestnuts on his arm, and' he  was clothed in a mantle the color of a fading leaf.  ���������November has never borne any other appellation, although the Romans wanted to compliment  Tiberius by naming H after him.

St. Louis, Mo., Sept. 12.���������Declaring  that the substitution by the Standard  Oil Company of steel for wooden barl  rels would throw thousands of coopers  out of employment, the Coopers'  Union of North America, in session  here, has adopted resolutions to unionize all cooperage shops of the Standard OH Company and to fight efforts  to substitute steel barrels.  appointed   to   confer   with   Alderman 1  Baxter, chairman of the bridges and 1  railway  committee of the city  council,   to  ascertain     exactly  what  the  clause means.  The clause states "other railroad  companies will be entitled to the joint  use of the terminals and station upon  a car basis of 5 per cent per annum  on the value of the property and  structures included within such terminals, they to bear the same proportion of the cost of maintenance, upkeep and operating." Several members stated that they believed it inadvisable to allow the . Canadian  Northern to control the terminal situation and they expressed the opinion that it could, if it so desired, place  difficulties in the way of other roads  using its terminals.  The clause stating that three-fifths  of the work will be done within three  years and the terminals completed  within five years also caused considerable discussion, but was finally accepted as satisfactory.  One side of the street is now paved between Twelfth and St. Catherines and  it is expected that at least one side  all the way from end to end will be  ready for use this winter with the  exception of the spots where fills  have be nmade, which will have to  be planked. The street is blng paved  with asphaltic mixture and form a  part bf the heavy yardage contracts  divided up by the board of works this  spring betwaen the Columbia Bith*  lithic Co., IM. P. Cotton ft Co., T. R.  Nickson ft Co., and the Canadian Mineral Rubber Co. This particular street  section is being carried out by the last  mentioned company.  Other Ward Five streets now being  paved with apshaltlc mixture include  ster Road and Victoria Drive, which  is practically finished. Vitrified brick  has been, used on' the sides where  there are heavy gfades. Other Ward  Five streets to be improved with  paving this year are: Scott, Eighth  to Fifteenth, sides only, finished;  Tenth, Westminster to Scott, finished;  Eighth, Scott to Westminster Road,  finished.  Aid. Baxter asserted today that  Ward Fife had received more paving in 1912 by far than during any  previous year. '  C. N. R. Agreement Sent to Council.  The work of the bridge's and railways committee on the C. N. R. False  Crek application' was completed on  Monday afternoon, when an agree-  mebt basis was seat up to the council. This basis of agreement covers  the ground already indicated in reports of former meetings and ln addition gives a number of modifications  arrived at yesterday.  For one thing new, the Canadian  Northern Railway Company will' fill  free for the city some 12 acres at the  southeast corner of the civic area, the  city reserving this-space for Us own  purposes.^ It will have frontage on  First Avenue. The northern boundary street between the civic area and  the Great Northern property, as snovn  on the Canadian Northern plan, will  be eliminated altogether, and the  southern boundary street will only extend from Main Street east to meet,  by means of a ramp, tbe proposed  viaduct across tbe creek from Princess^ Carl) to either Scott or Carolina.  The city will keep a strip 250 feet  wide east of Main Street, from the  north boundary south to the proposed  railway roadway on the south side of  the depot shown on the plan, as a  public park. Col. Davidson, of the  C. N. R., agreed yesterday to move  his tracks on the south aide of this  private roadway back east 400 feet  from Main Street. That is to say, the  city will reserve a strip 250 feet wide  from the north boundary to the private roadway immediately south of  the proposed depot and will reserve a  strip 400 feet wide from that point on  to the south boundary of the civic portion of the creek.  Col. Davidson and the committee  arranged at the meeting that the  C. N. R. would start paying taxes on  three-filths of the bed secured by the  company in three years' time, and on  the whole of the bed after five years.  The company is to be given an exemption on all improvements, such as  prevails throughout the city at the  prevent time, until 1924.  Heated ..scenes in which Aid. Hepburn and Aid. McNeill and Aid. Hep-  1 burn with Chairman Baxter figured,  characterized the committee meeting  yesterday, and. so marked did the  wrangling: among the aldermen become that it appeared at one stage  as if no business would be put through  at all.    -  . t.

The cold, wet weather which prevailed throughout Canada during August  delayed ripening and the harvest is  everywhere later than usual; but no  serious frosts have as yet been reported. All crops show an improvement  since the end of July, excepting peas,  beans and corn. The- average condition of spring wheat is 84.57 per cent.  Of the ctandard or full crop, which is  represented by 100; rye is 84.14, barley  87.29, oats 88.15, mixed grains 86.57  and flax 87.84. These figures are higher than those of a month ago by about  1 per cent for wheat; rye and flax, 4  or 5 per cent for barley, mixed grains  and buckwheat, and 7 per cent for  oats.

What'B the use oi a  range that will not bake  properly ? That's what you  get it for i and yet there  are a lot of stoves on tbe  market that won.t bake satisfactorily because the heat  does not circulate around  the oven so as to keep it at  an even temperature. But  this cannot happen on  liiirney-Oifqnl  Chancellor Steel Ranges  The divided flue sends half the heat over the front of  the oven. This means that every corner is available because  the oven is heated, back as well as front, evenly.  Then the wonderful Oxford Economizer, **.hich will save  20 per cent, on fuel, holds your fire twice as long as before  and ventilates the kitchen. And it's so simple���������just the  moving of a lever and the stove can be controlled.  Call in and sec us next time you are down town.

Well, me lad, be  that as it may, we were walkln* State  street, not too far from Taylor, when  we heard sounds'lndicatin' that: Satan  had bruk loose in a coon, restaurant!  nearby., We went over, an' I'm think-  in' we were just in time.

"Now ye remind me of It," said the!  policeman, "there surely was���������big Sam;  Oruttt, the human elephant.

"Just the same/' declared Brockett,!  "the trouble started because he had!  stolen something of mine���������or, rather,!  had something of mine that anotberi  man had stolen. A money belt, containing considerable cash vand���������well,  anyhow, containing all ray money."   <  ������������������He showed the belt ������n thia restaurant," put in Solano, f"and we, accidentally happening to be there at the  time, naturally tried to take It away;  from htm. Then, J suppose, they all!  jumped) oa us." I  "That they did, an' the only thing!  I'm surprised at" remarked the of*;  fleer, "la that they didn't use thelrj  razors on ye. Bad lot of coons hang!  ���������round that place, I'm tellln' ye." j  | "We fully believe It," said Solano,  with a grimace of pain. "But say,;  officer, how long have we been tn!  here, and how long have we to stay?"!  "Te have been In only a matter of  three hours, lads.'V replied the policeman, "though I suppose it has seemed  a week of Sundays. As to how long ye  stay���������well, ye haven't been booked  yet Pm not a bad Judge of people  when I see them, an' ye look aU right;  to me. In fact, I haven't a doubt of;  the troth of your story���������ye can explain the details farther- to me later.  :I'll take ye out of this, take ye upstairs where ye can wash up, an' then;  ���������we'll have a little talk about ways an'!  means of recoverln' your property.'  jCome along now���������It's glad ye ought;  to be that youse are both llvln'."

Offlcer Hogan treated them'  'like younger brothers, assured tbem!  that no charge had been entered!  ;agalnst tbem, and tbat they might con*  eider themselves as simply held for  safekeeping. "Better stay right here  till evenin'," said tbe hospitable om  cer, "an' then we will sally out an' try  to get hold of the big nigger. I bave  a half-Idea aa to where we can locate!  him. He's up against the dope���������smokes]  hop regular���������an' lt won't be hard toi  find him. Along after supper, lads,  well go out an' do the best we can."  : Neither Brockett nor Solano could  find words to fit the case, but the  twinkle ln the big policeman's eye told)  that he fully understood their feel-:  lugs. He shook hands with tbem re*!  assurlnfly, brought them a bundle of  newspapers to while away the time,;  and then busied himself with the rou-*  tine of his report upon the days!  events. The boys were burled in the;  printed columns, when a Uttle packet!  of paper seemed to waft Knelt through;  the window by which they w-ara sft-i  wnether we can keep "faKh as prom*  ised or have to give it all up and ad*  mlt ourselves utter failures!"  ..���������'**'  CHAPTER XIX.  ��������� The day passed somewhat dragging,  ly, for time flies with leaden pin-feathers when you are in a hurry. Brockett  and Solano knew that they had little  time left for action, and that If they  failed to recover the messages now in  possession of the big negro their jour*  ney would abruptly end, an utter failure. Most ot the afternoon and early*  evening was spent in discussing the*  giant Mack, and tbe chances of finding*  the documents still ln his possession v  "I only hope," said Brockett, "that",  he hasn't thrown away the envelopes.,  He might very likely destroy them tol  make the chance of identifying the!  belt so much smaller, and to protect!  him In the possession of tbe money." ���������  "I hardly think ao," Solano encour*.  aged the worried youngster. "When;  we get the negro, we'll get belt, papers, money and all. And I think Of-;  fleer Hogan will come pretty near to*,  rounding him np, if anybody can."  "I wonder tf the big fellow remem-i  bered us from Detroit?" mused Brock-!  ett "If so, he might also remember'  the card he passed us, something of j  its general appearance, and, If he'  opened the envelopes in the belt, the1  duplication of the writing might im~  press him."  "Hardly probable," dissented 80-1  tono. "He was simply told, In De*!  trott, tb hand that card to us, and!  was paid something to do it Hej  might remember us, all right, but  would not be likely to remember any-)  thing about the message that he gave  us. Quit fretting about the whole)  business. I firmly better* everything!  will wor* out all right, and that the  lost envelopes will oome back to you!  before morning. Then we can hurry1  towards Mexko as fast as you may de*!  ���������Ire."  It was about nine that night wbenj  Officers Hogan and Flynn���������the latter  as big, as husky and as truly Irish wi  his partner���������aummoned the boys for.  the expedition that should spell abso-;  lute failure or a chance to retrieve)  lost fortunes. Both were in plain!  clothes, both were heavily armed, andi  both teemed to regard the evening's!  program as a rare bit of diversion.  "Dop't you worry, me lad," chuckled;  Hogan, "we'll get your nagur before  the stroke of twelve, an' we'll get tnej  goods with him. He's no spendthrift^  nagur, that felly, an' he'll bave pretty  near all your money still with him."   ;  Td be willing," said Brockett, "to:  let him keep the money If he'd give!  me back wbat else was In the belt"  "Let bim kape notbln'," growled]  Flynn. "Wud ye encourage a chape*  nagur to unlawful dotn'a? Ye'd spoil)  Wm be lettln' htm have money. We'llj  get him, an' the money too."

However we might explain that what the  poor black chimney sweep has been  obliged to do with much hard labor  and more dirt, the Invention of Mr.  Broadhurst accomplishes by one vigorous air-blast.

The plan, which will be tbe means  of bringing thousands ot settlers to the  farma and cities of Western Canada,  was first suggested by Col. Lamb to  General William Booth some two  ago. Tbere are 117,000 widows with  200,000 children in England who are  receiving outdoor poor relief, and Col.  Lamb estimates that there are an  equal number ln destitute circumstances who are not receiving any relief.

Phone: Seymour 15G7  ''WHEAT TO THE WEST"  Is me SHHwn of the Prairies  ���������'.���������-*>  And just as soon as the wheat does come west *ro*_*tt am Port Moody snoot up  with mushroom-like rapidity* Probably you do not realize that within twelve  mouths the Panama Canal will he open. Tou cannot possibly imagine what it  means' to Port Moody. Put can.you no realize why four of. the largest trans-  conteuinental lines in the world are centering their activities at this point? The  solution is easy. It's Burrard Inlet they are after, because it affords them the fin  est location for a competitive port forthe Oriental trade.  Burrard Inlet is on of the finest barhors in the world.   Millions are now-being  spent by the government and the city in making it the finest harbor in tbo world.  , From the Second Narrows to the bead of the Inlet, including the whole of the  North Arm, will probably soon be a fresh water harbor.   Pour million dollars  will probably be spent on erecting a mammoth dam across the Inlet.  All this preparation is being made for a purpose.   The purpose is to prepare  for the opening of the Canal and to make ready for the increased trade that -  will soon be coming to the Coast from the prairies.  When the Panama Canal opens there will be no more cry from the farmers of  a grain blockade. Instead of shipping the wheat to the Oreat Lakes and then  across the continent, it will come to thesoastvii  PORT MOODY  Three more transcontinental lines are planning to come through Port Moody,  and the C. P. R. is double tracking its lines from Vancouver to Calgary. The  grain elevators are expected to be~ereeted at Port Moody in the very near future,  and then Port Moody will be one of the big ports of the Pacific. It is only a  question of time before the great transformation takes place. Port Moody really  has almost doubled in value since we first put our lots on the market. There has  been a phenomenal rush for our property because the advantages of an investment  here were apparent to those who had visited Port Moody and seen for themselves  its marvellous possibilities.  Port Moody's natural resources are enough to make it a prosperous city.  It has been developing its own industries, and now its reputation as a lumber  centre is known all over Canada. The government is spending big sums on harbor  improvements, and the new Dominion government wharf which is now being built  will be completed by the new-year, when Port Moody will be incorporated.  Amongst the many improvements that will be made to Port Moody's harbor  are the reclamation of the tide flats at the head of the Inlet. This will considerably add to the city's territory. The C P. B. propose to remove their present  depot to the head of the Inlet in order to make it a better distributing point for  the grain that will soon be shipped there.  A lot in Port Moody is the safest and surest investment on the market today.  No other city has shown sueh gigantic strides in development in so short a time.  Port Moody has only just begun to grow, and in the near future it will be a beehive of industry, with the ships of the world anchoring in its magnificent harbor.
