VANCOUVER CONSERVATIVES j  At the annual meeting of the Vancouver Con-i  servative Cljjh, Jan. 28, the following officers  and representatives were elected*.  President$Mr. R. S.

Thomas Kirkpatrick; Ward IV, Mr. Joseph Hos-  tin; Ward V, Mr. D. E, Hyhdman; Ward VI, Mr.  George M. Endacott; Ward VII, Mr. James Reid;  Ward VIII, Mr. R. B. Hetherington.  Auditors elected for 1913 were J^r. James Cre-  han and Mr. Jaimes Bennett.  From Mr. H. H. Stevens, M. P., at Ottawa,  came a telegram conveying greetings. It read:  "Convey greetings to your annual meeting;  the Conservative cause making great progress  under our able leader, the Right Hon. R. L. Borden, who wishes me to extend his appreciation of  the Vancouver Conservatives. "  The speaker of the evening was Mr. W. J.  Bowser, Attorney-General, other speakers being  the local provincial members.  The Attorney-General, although suffering from  a severe cold, gave an interesting address, in  which he dwelt on many matters of vital interest  to the country. 7\  Briefly he touched on the police board and the  appointments for 1913.  "In framing up the police board this year we  felt we must get men who would inspire the public confidence. We have, I think, this year got  two men who will please the public and will show  the confidence of the government was not misplaced."  Secretary's Report.  Mr. R. L. Maitland, secretary of the organization, submitted the usual yearly report, which  was in part as follows: 'v;'?_  "At t&e present time our organisation is in  splendid shape. AU fne ward clubs have1 elected  their officers for the coming yeftr and we believe  we have in these officials men who witt do credit  to themselves and to the party as a whole.  "Without any election m sight and after having passed through two strenuous campaigns, we  were able to register some 2,100 names ai against  709 by the liberals and Socialists combined.  "We-feel that w������ cannot'1^t^i^fervtb''thr'VeTy  splendid and effective work that has been accomplished by bur Federal member, Mr. Jf. J$.  Stevens. He enjoys the confidence of every  member of the Borden Cabinet and has been able  to do more for the City of Vancouver in one year  than tiie Laurier Government did for us in twelve  years. We feel that the present Dominion Government is alive'to the importance of this city  from every standpoint and that we may look  forward* to a square deal for Vancouver during  the lifetime of the pesent Government."  "In closing and on behalf of the executive we  would like to express our, appreciation of the  earnest, energetic efforts of our president, Mr. W.  J. Baird, in his endeavor to maintain and to improve the good record of the Vancouver Conservative Club. Mr. Baird has given a great deal  of time to this work and always took his stand for  what he thought was in the interests of the party.  In thanking the members for his election, Secretary Maitland complimented Mr. Victor Love, the  assistant secretary, for his help, saying the splendid condition of the records today were due to  Mr. Love ind his tireless work in the% interest of  Conservatives. V*  Mr. Walter Leek, as the retiring treasurer,  read that official report. The expenditures for  the year amounted to $6,012. The surplus on hand  was $406.  Dr. McGuire took occasion to pay tribute to Mr.  H. H. Stevens, M.P., at Ottawa, and the vast  amount of energy he was displaying in the interest of the city.  f KiMO������-MIM'M������MI*ll'M'f MI M 11 IK HI 11 lllf < H HI IIIM M ������l I ���������������>!������ t������ 11 Hf U H M Ij  By Alex*  ���������<;���������'��������� The recent snow storm proved a hindrance to: traffic, a wet blanket on business and a dis-  t'couragement to social events, because it was unusual and hence caught the people wholly un-  X prepared for such lavishment from the skies.

The census of the Manufactures of Canada, taken in June, 1911, for the Calendar year 1910,  denotes a gratifying movement of the country's industrial prosperity during the last decade. Compared with the census of1901 for the year 1900 it shows an increase in the ten years of 4,568 in  the number of working establishments, of $800,667,122 in the value of capital, of 176,030 in the  number of persons employed, of $127,759,066 in the earnings of salaries and wages and of $684,-  922,264 in the value of products.

A few words will show his Biblical interpretation  and its manifest failure to comply with history and  revelation.  See Gen. chap. 49, verse 1, where Jacob uses the  words "Last Days." This good minister said  that "last days" here, and the promises referred  to by Jacob, were the days of the kings of Isreal,  and that the promises were fulfilled during those  days. Concerning the words: "A nation and ai  company of nations shall be of thee, and kings  shall come out of thy loins," he informed us that  this promise was fulfilled in Canaan in the company of na'vns* such as the Israelites, Amorites,  Moabites, Amalakites, Canaanites and the others.  In addition to this wonderful bit of information he  said fhe Israelites grew up out of a combination of  nations such as the above. *  (By Professor E. Odium. MA..

January 31,1913  Yield and Value of  Canadian Crops  Ottawa, Jan. 10.���������-Final estimates of  the yield and value of tbe principal  field crops of Canada for the season  of 1912 are Issued today by the Census  and Statistics Office of the Department ol Trade and Commerce. Upon  a total area under field crops of 32,-  474,000 acres a harvest bas been > reaped the value of which, calculated at  average local market prices, makes a  total of 1609,437,000. The area under  wheat last year -was 9,768,400 acres,  of which 781,000 acres represents the  harvested area of fall wheat grown  principally in Ontario and Alberta, but  also to a limited extent In Manitoba,  Saskatchewan and British Columbia.  The total production of wheat was  199,236,000 bushels, of the value of  $123,622,000. Fall wheat produced 16,-  396,000 bushel* of the value of 113,-  785,000. Oats upon 9,216,900 acres  yielded 361,733,000 bushels, of the  value of fll6,9i!<s,000- barley, upon  1,413.200 acres, yielded 44,014,000  bushels of the value of 820,406,000;  and flax, upon 1,677,800 acres, yielded  21,631^00 bushels, of the value of  819,626,000.  By comparison .with 1911, the results of last year's harvest, both as  regards total yield and value, are  upon the whole Inferior. The average  prices realised for most of the crops  were somewhat less, whilst the yields  from wheat, rye. peas, beans and corn  for husking were also lower. On the  other hand, oats yielded about, 13%  million bushela mor^ than in 1911, and  the following crops'also show more or  leas an excess yield: Barley, buck*  wheat, mixed grains, flax, potatoes,  turnips, etc., fodder corn, sugar beet  aad alfalfa. The a*erage~yielda per  acre for the rear 1912 compared with  1011 are as. follows: Wheat, 20.42  bushels against 20.37;, oats. 89.26  against 37.76; barley, 31.10 against  38.94; rye, 17.44 against 18.89; peas,  14.98 agalast 16.80; buckwheat, 26.34  against 22.69; mixed grains, 33.67  against 29.78; flaxseed, 12.92 against  11.41; beans, 17.40 against 19.06; corn  for husking, 66.68 against 69.69; potatoes, 172 against 144; turnips, etc., 402  against 874; hay and clover, 10.74 tons  against 8.66, and alfalfa, 2.79 tons  against 2 J4*  The quality of the grains of cereals  as shown br average * weight , per  measured bushel is somewhat, inferior  to that of last year in the case of  wheat, rye* peas, mixed grains and  flax, hot is superior in tbe case of oats,  barley, buckwheat, beans arid corn for  husking. . '  In the three Northwest provinces of  Manitoba Saskatchewan and Alberta  the production of wheat is placed at  183,322,000 bushels compared with  194,083,000 bushels in 1911; of oats at  221,758,000 bushels, compared with  212,819,000; and ��������������� barley at 26,671,-  000 bushels, compared with 24,043,000  bushels. The wheat production of  1912 in , Manitoba was 58,889,000  bushels from '2,653,100 acres; in Saskatchewan, 93,849,000 bushels from  4,891,500 acres, and in Alberta 30,574,*  000 bushels from 1,417,200 acres,  Conditions as affecting live stock  are reported to have been much the  same as those of 1911. Mild weather  through the fall and up to Christmas  enabled farmers to economize their  feeding supplies, and live stock have  entered winter quarters in excellent  condition.

Will Grandview be Chosen?  The circulation of the report that  the proposed new drill hall is to be  located in Grandview has been responsible for a great deal of excitement recently in real estate circles. It is confidently asserted that options have  already been secured on the property  on Commercial arive between William  and Charles streets, comprising a  whole city block. The options are  held by private parties, it is under  stood, who refuse to disclose the plans  for the proposed use of the tract.  Rumors are being circulated to the  effect that the federal government is  negotiating for the block. However,  as the property is on a hillside, it is  claimed that,it would not be suitable  for a drilling ground.  Another pertinent suggestion is that  the property may have been acquired  as- a site for the proposed Canadian  Northern Railway hotel. Alderman  MeSpadden, who is one of the owners  of the property, absolutely refuses to  make any statement regarding the negotiations.  Inquiries for property in Grandview  during' the past week have been  numerous; several sales have b*een  made, in fact, there is ah unusual demand for realty throughout this section. The owners in the majority of  cases are holding fast to their property in expectation of a big rise in  vales at an early date.  Charles E. Smith reports the sale of  property on Bagley street for 34,300.  The land was purchased by Mr.  Donald McDonald, who will erect  three houses on the property.

Sixteen years ago Samuel Gordiano  lifted up bis eyes and found San Luis  Potosi, Mexico, very "poor stuff. So he  moved on. He was only twelve years  old. It'ls rather dusty walking along  the Mexican bolder, but be kept putting one foot after the other until he  found work on a ranch in Texas. Not  being bigger than a pint of cider,  Gordiano got bis pay in cakeB. That  Just suited bim. He had grown pretty  lank on that stroll across tbe frontier.  There were times when if he bad swallowed a bean some surgeon would  bave wanted to operate on him for a  tumor. 7- 7  Ten years ago he moved on to Ny-  ack, N. Y. He could talk pretty fair  English and a man's size ambition had  grown up in him. He worked his way  through tbe seminary at Nyack. Part  of tbe time be washed dishes and  waited on table, and did other menial  tasks.. But he was graduated with  scholastic bells on. By this time be  bad grown In mental stature. He was  able to make his living as an interpreter and translator while he studied  at the Union Theological Seminary  here. Sometimes he was pretty hard  up. It isn't recorded that he ever  asked for help. If he borrowed a dollar now and then, he always paid that  ducat back before lt could be asked  for. He won the degree of A. M. at  Columbia University.  He was approaching that ambition  he had sighted at along the barrel of  the years. By the aid of various  agencies he established an evangelical  church for the Spanish-speaking population Of New York. When not enough  of the 20,000 N&w Yorkers who were  "born to the Spanish tongue came to  blm, he went to them. He used to  preach to the cigar rollers between  times. Sometimes he spent hours on  the* watertjront looking for Spanish  sailors who were "up against ' it."  Finally the Iglesia Evangelica Espano*  la���������having grown out of pocket slse  ���������was given permission to hold its  weekly meetings in Pr. Parkhnrat's.  church on Madison-avenue. And how  Gordiano is in fair sight of what he  has been working for.  The' corner-stone Of bis new church  Is toisbe laid-in a few days. It will be  the first evangelical church, for the  Spanish folk in the two Americas.  The Rev. Samuel Gordiano is happy.  Chairman of . Bridges and Railways  Committee Explains Clauses But  States that Criticism Is Premature.  Over forty members of the Grand-  view Ratepayers' Association were  present last week at a special meeting  called to consider the question oi the.  C. N. R. entry to False Creek. A  resolution declaring that the meeting  disapproved of the action of the  bridges and railway committee was  declared carried by the chairman, half  of the attendance Btanding up to vote  for it in response to the request of  the chairman, but the other half took  nq action. Messrs. W. R. Hamilton,  A. B. Chapman and James Held, who  are interested in the real estate business, were the principal speakers on  the part of the opposition. * In addition Alderman Woodside, chairman of  the bridges and railway committee,'  Aid. Hepburn and Aid. Ramage were.  present   ���������/.'������������������  Mr. Jas. Reid, Dr. Strong, Mr. Thos.  Odium, Mr. E. Adair, Mr. Shannon  having spoken,- and several other  members having been called upon to  speak who, however, preferred not to  do so, Aid. Woodside was called, upon.  He explained his position as chairman of the bridges and railway committee. He claimed the city had secured the very best agreement possible, and spoke of the personal, stand  he had taken in regard to securing  the concession made as to the wages  to be paid to laborers.  He considered it rather premature  to discuss a proposed agreement not  yet printed for reference, and he  thought the meeting was evidently  called for the purpose of opposing the  agreement. Notwithstanding this, he  went on and touched oh features of  the agreement, ultimately stating that  if it was passed by council on Monday night the bylaw would then be  advertised tor twenty days, which  would give every opportunity for the  expression of public opinion.  .. Aid. Hepburn claimed there had  been introduced so many things into  the agreement, that the amount' the  city would be getting out of It waa  obscured. He estimated the amount  would be only $1,103,650, made up as  follows: $70,074 for filling in First  avenue, $48,888 for filling in land behind block, $72,000 for filling in twelve  acres, $8,888 for filling in Main street,  $28,000 for filling in west of Main  street, $15,000 for' widening First  avenue, $200,000 as half cost of Carolina e-r Scott street bridge, $60,000 for  cost of concrete wall 27 feet west of  Main street. -From this, he said,  should be deducted (if this work was  not done) $28,800 for filling west of  Main street, $30,000 for concrete wall  and $300,000 for property in block 25,  a total of $358,800, leaving $744,850  net, from which $7,150 cost of paving  Main street should be taken, leaving  Everybody's doing it-Who's doingit?

Tweflve-Month Term for Cheque Artist  Charged with obtaining money under false pretences and issuing worthless cheques, N. A. McGowan was .sentenced to twelve months' Imprisonment by Magistrate Shaw this morning.  McGowan, who is alleged to come  of a wealthy and respectable-family  from Texas, had. made several efforts  to obtain help from his folks by telegraph, but no word had been received.  vMr. J. K. Kennedy stated that It  would be fair to the prisoner to say  that he, Mr. Kennedy, had seen testimonials speaking of McGowan ln the  highest terms, but his offence had  been too heavy and too repeated to  be excused  and that may be caused by Inability to  secure material for the steel bridges  ia contract time. There are no less  than 17 big bridges to be built in the  British Columbia section, and" contractors have been complaining about delay in the forwarding of material.  This delay in shipments is due in a  great measure to the enormous demands for all kinds of structural steel  all over the United States and Canada. ������������������ ".'��������� ... .,  Aggressiveness for City Market.

A definite decision to proceed as  soon as possible with the Improvement of the Kitsilano and English Bay  bathing beaches and bath-houses was  reached last week, when members  of the Park Board and Mr. John  R. Honeyman, architect, waded  through the snow on an inspection  tour, examined the' bath-houses and  looked over the beaches.  Messrs. Honeyman and Curtis, are  to draw up plans in the near future  for changes in the bathhouses, wttb  the object of making them more convenient. The beaches will also undergo changes, but to what extent or  wbat improvements will be effected in  the bath-houses are not known as yet,  for the Park Board has done nothing  definite beyond deciding on action:  One thing haB been practically decided, however, that this is the establishment of the locker system in the  bath-houses, as used at the Beattie  bathing, resorts. The locker system,  it is stated, will make it possible to  accommodate five 'times as many  bathers with the same facilities aB at  present. InBtead ef each bather having a bath-room, as at present, he  will be {riven a room in which to  change his bathing suit, after which  he will surrender this room to other**.  and put his clothes in a locker to be  p'aced iu a general locker room.

Additional instances of damage to  buildings owing to the weight of the  melting snow on the roof has been  reported from several different outlying sections of tho city.  The most serious instance was the  structure used as the gymnasium ot  the Methodist Church, o>i the corner  of Sixth avenue and Fir street, which  totally collapsed this morning at 6.15  o'clock. The building was smashed to  the ground, and tbe damages are estimated at $2,000. In falling the back  wall was forced against tbe house at  the rear of the church occupied by Mr.  O'Sulllvan. His house was only  slightly damaged, however. The  heavy, watery snow so weighed down  the building that it fell together like  a house of cards. Fortunately nobody  was hurt.  The heavy snow is creating havoc  with the lighter buildings in the city.  A small galvanized house or shack on  Georgia street, opposite the Horse  Show building, collapsed this morning at 1.15 o'clock owing to the pressure of the melting snow. No damage  was done to the building, which is  only a temporary shack for building  purposes.   .  **************************   **************************  Mo Delivery  I  No Credit  Pbone.

The attendance was  very good considering the weather.  Bro. Brunt started the programme  with a piano solo, which did a. great  deal towards the success of tho evening.   Messrs. Peel and Campbell each  rendered   vocal   solos,, .which > were  highly appreciated by the audience.  The    two    instrumentals    by    the  Italian Quartette, were also a great  success.    Bro.   Cairns,   from   Chilllwack, as speaker tor the evening, gave  an eloquent address.   He spoke in a  very encouraging way, and said that  although he had as delegate been to  the Local House quite a number of  times in the Temperance cause, there  seemed no chance to accomplish very  vmuch until.the people had been educated to see the heinousness of the  great evil, over which legislation had  apparently such little control, but thai  the strides that the Temperance cause  was taking proved that it was Just a  matter   of  time  and this great evil  would be overcome.  The evening closed by singing "God  Save the King," led by the Italian  Band. A. O. F.  New Block for Mount Pleasant.

She  never failed to go over to a neighbor's  after a session with the old man and  complain bitterly of his treatment.  After a while the neighbors grew  weary of the oft-repeated tale, and  remarked: "Well, you seem to like  it. You always take it willingly. Why  don't you pick up something and hit  him with it the next time he whips  you?"  The wife considered the matter, and  the next time her lord, began to. beat  her she grasped a chair and smashed  it over his head.

John Opla'a First Portrait end What It  Cest Him.     c  John Ople. tbe English painter. Is  described in "Coke of Norfolk and Bin  Friends," by Mrs. A. at. W. Stirling,  ss a man of bumble origin wbo acute v  ed success wholly by bis own genius  and perseverance The story of bis  first effort In tbat line of art which  afterward brought bim fame be related to Coke, tlrst Earl of l.e|ce*ter ot  Bolkbaiu, as follows:  Wbeu a small boy of ten or twelve  be was left at home one Sunday afternoon witb bis father, while bis mother went to church. Tbe father estab  lisbed himself Iu the parlor wltb bit  Bible and told tbe boy to he quiet ana  ���������amuse himself.  Young Opie, wbo hsd procured some  paints, took up his position unobserved  Ln tbe kitchen directly opposite ibt>  parlor door. Very quietly he drew t  portrait of the old man bending ovei  bis Bible until he had finished everything except the* bead, when be begau  running backward und forward to  study his father's* race.  The old pentletnan grew very angr*  at these apparently aenseless Interrup  tions aud tiircatftiod Co punish his sou  if they cootiimcil  This was exactly wbat tbe boy want  ed, us be wished to palut bis father's  eyes tit up aud sparkling witb anger  So be continued his irritating behavior  until It met with tne desired result,  and bis futber. ji.stl.v wrutuful, adtnlu  Istered a sound lurashlug.  This achieved, tbe boy resumed hi?  task- eagerly aud transferred to hi*  picture the expression which be had  just seen upon the face of bis indignant parent  When bis mother returned frotr.  church he placed the picture trium  pbantly before her: bnt. altnongb aston  Ished and delighted with it. she thought  it her duty to scold her son severely  for painting on a Sunday.  Young Opie. however, cared no more  for the scolding than for the beating  he had received in accomplishing his  work nnd only hugged his mother de  lightedly in his excitement at Its sue  cess.  His father, coming into the room a I  that Juncture and spying the portrait  of himself, was so surprispd and pleas  ed at it that he told the mother not to  scold the boy any more.  Subsequently,  whenever the picture  was Bbown, he used to tell with great  relish the story of young Opie's plucky  acceptance of a beating in order to in  sure its success.  ���������URNS' ANNIVERSARY CONCERT.

A. Prlngle (Storomont), moved the  following resolution: "That in the  opinion of this House the subpect of  improving the condition of the aged,  deserving poor, is worthy of and  should receive the early and'careful  attention of the Oovernment and of  Parliament." "  Iu support ot this resolution the  mover pointed out the. necessity of  establishing some system of contributory aid by the State for the benefit  of the aged, deserving poor of Canada, by reading to the House a letter  signed by the president and the secretary of the United Mine Workers  of America, and by showing how tbe  level of existence had been raised  amongst the aged, and deserving poor  of certain other countries. He reviewed reports and quoted portions of  evidence which had been submitted to  the British Parliament by Lord Ab*  erdare's Royal Commission in 1895,  Lord Rothschild's Committee in 1898,  Sir Edward Hamilton's in 1900 and Mr.  Grant Lawson's Select Committee on  the Aged Pensioners Bill in 1903. Sir  Wilfrid Laurier followed and the debate was continued by Mr. Maclean  (York), Hon. Mr. Lemieux, Messr*.  Verville, Porter, Robltaille and Bour-  wssa. Views favourable to a Bystem  of Old Age Annuities were expressed  in preference to non-contributory systems of pensions. The motion wat  not pressed to a vote and the resolution was withdrawn.  On the Srd February, 1908, Mr. R.  A. Prlngle moved: "That a Select Com*  uiittee of nine be appointed to Inquire  into, and to consider a scheme or  schemes by State aid or otherwise for  making provisions for the aged, and  deserving poor " This resolution was supported by Messrs. Mae-  donell (Toronto), Logan, Smith (Nanaimo), Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Hon. Mr.  Foster, Hon. Mr. Fielding, Messrs. A.  Johnston and A. A. Lefurgey.  On the 10th February, 1908, a Select  Committee was appointed: Hon. Mr.  Lemieux, chairman, Messrs. Mclntyre (Perth, S.R.), Sinclair, Smith (Nanalmo), McKenzie, Verville, Monk,  held It was found impossibles-owing  Prlngle and McCarthy (Calgar*). The  chairman had made arrangement* with  Messrs.

Professor Adam Shortt  and two other eminent sociologists  bad been communicated wlt]b,, who  were expected to give valuable evl  dence, but after three sittings ha^ been  to morning sessions of the Bous# giving begun, to reconvene the Committee. No report was presented ;^o the  House, other than a verbal statement  made by the chairman on the/lOtb of  July, ten days before the OhJ Age  Annuities Act, 1908, was assented to  by the Governor General.  Old Aoe Annuities Act, 1*08,  The attitude ot the Government, aa  expressed in 1907 on the subject of  Old Age Pensions during tbe/-cowse  of debate on Mr. Pringle's resolution,  was further revealed by a resolution  which Hon. Mr. Fielding moved on the  10th March, 1908, to authorize the sale  ol government annunities to people  domiciled In Canada. He accordingly  moved the House into Committee; the  resolution was adopted and the same  day Bill No. 120, an Act to authorize  the issue of Government Annuities for  Old Age was presented.  Before proceeding to the inquiry by  the Sleet Committee on Old Age Pen  slons ordered by the House in 1912, it  may be of Interest to state briefly  some of the provisions ot this Act.  Its preamble reads as follows:���������-  "Whereas It is in the public interest  that habits of thrift be promoted and  that the people of Canada be encouraged and aided thereto, so that  provision may be made for old age;  and whereas it is expedient that further facilities be afforded for the attainment of the said objects: Therefore His Majesty,' etc.  ,"(a) The Minister (Trade and  Commerce), acting for His Majesty,  may contract, with any person domiciled in Canada, or with any Bosiety or  association of persons, being a body  corporate for fraternal, benevolent, religious or other lawful purposes on behalf of such ot Its members, or with  employers of labour pursuant to agreement entered into with their employees In that behalf (such agreement to be of a form approved by the  Minister), for the sale of annuities not  less than S50 nor more than $600 payable by the Government out of the.  Consolidated Revenue Fund to such  purchaser on having attained the age  of 55 years. Note.���������Cost of annuity is  lower of purchaser draws first payment at 60.  "(b) Should tbe annuitant die before the date fixed for the annuity to  begin, all payments made will be returned to the legal representatives of  the purchaser with 3 per cent, compound Interest.  "(c) The earliest age at which the  purchase may be begun is 5, but it  may begin at any age thereafter.  "(d) There are no penalities or forfeitures. To ������������ach purchaser a contract or policy is issued. If for any  reason payments should cease, they  may be renewed at any time; and if  arrears are not made up the only effect will be that a smaller annuity will  be secured.  "(e) The annuity is not transferable, but it is provided under the Act  that where the purchaser of an annuity is made by husband or wife, he  or she has the right when the annuity  matures to say if it is desired that a  portion of the annuity shall be paid to  the other.    (Amended in 1909.)  "(f) The property and interest of  an annuitant in ,hls contract for an  annuity is exempt from the operation  Of any law relating to bankruptcy or  insolvency, and shall not be seized or  levied upon by or under the process of  any court, except where it is shown  that such contract was entered into  and payment therefore made with In*  tent to delay, hinder, or defraud  creditors. In the latter case the  creditors must establish such Intent  before a court, and the Minister la  authorized to pay to them any sum  paid in by the annuitant.  " (g) Payments can be made periodically to any agent of the Minister  appointed under the provisions of the  Act,  "(h) If a person has an amount at  his credit in the Post Office Savings  Bank, he may have this amount, or  such portion' of it, as ho may- desire,  transferred to the Annuities Depart*  ment for, or on account of, the pur*  chase ot an annuity.  "(1) Any one over the age of 55  may buy ah Immediate Annuity; and  last Survivor Annuity, Immediate or  Deferred, may be purchased by any  two persons by a single payment"  Friday, January 31.1913  Foreigners Interested in B.

Bthnologlcally Great Britain Is a  mixture of many races, resulting from  a succession of Invasions. When the  Romans invaded Britain the Inhabitants were Celtic, mixed with an earlier Euskarlan non-Aryan element.  They continued to be mainly so until  the fifth and sixth centuries, when the  level parts of tbe country were overrun by German tribes. Then followed  invasions by the Danes and other  Scandinavian tribes, and lastly the  Norman conquest. The Inhabitants of  England and the lowlands of Scotland,  therefore, sprang from an amalgamation of the original Celtic with German and Scandinavian blood. Wales  and the highlands of Scotland are still  inhabited by descendants of the  ancient Celtic tribes. Tbe people of  Ireland also are of Celtic origin, although there is an admixture of many  other races.  I  Lendooene Portioning  ,.
