Odlunw MA.. B.Sc)  V( The Xtord said to Abraham:���������"Unto thy seel  have I given this land, from ther River, of Egypt  ' unto the OREAT RIVER, the River Euphrates*'  Now let us have a short historic chat with you.  Mr. Public. Tou are always ready to listen to  reason and sound sense, particularly wherein you  have deep interest.  The .territory included in the above promise  amounts to ,2,500,000 square miles. King Solomon  ruled over, about 75,000 square miles, a small part/  ol the grhole. At the end of, last century Oreat  Briisin was in actual possession of about 1,250,000  square miles, qr the one-half of the whole, given  hy Divine promise to the "seed of Abraham."  In 1839 Aden came into British possession, Later the north shore of the Gulf of Aden followed. In 1855, Kuria Muria Island-,, and in 1857  Perim and Mosha followed and. came under British control. Thus the entrance to the Red,Sea  was under our command. Later on, the Islst-d  ���������f Bahrein in the Persain Gulf became British*  and about the same time the one independent  kingdom or sultanate, that of Muscat, came into  ���������nr Empire,-so that Oreat Britain is dominant  all the way from Aden to the month of the Euphrates.  Besides, the Arab tribes along the shores of the  Persian Gulf are in a treaty pact to co-operate  with Britain in all important matters,,thus git*  ing Britain the defacto ownership of tne Persian  Onlf. , .  In 1878, when ths great powers of Europe were  sitting in solemn conclave on the "Sick Man, Tur-  . key," Britain made a treaty with Turkey hy  whieh Cyprus wss added to the long list of Anglo*  Saxon possessions. Cyprus is a. most^mtjortant  gate overlooking Palestine," iyria, and ore*  Egypt. Thus we find from 1839 to 187* all the*-  additions,in thst pan of the world were made to  the sway of the Union Jseic.  fn 1882 Britain- -was forced to. eater^lfyjrf to  save the country frot* tlje internal trouWee and  civil war which were mining the land of the ancient Pharaohs. I* 1885 our flag was raised over  the southern coast of the Gulf of 46>n, and if)  ths year 1986 we added to the list*1 the large isl-  and of Seeotrs. In 1888 British rule was extend*  ed into centra} Africa down to the wroatorial  . regions.. J* the asms year on?

The same Lord of promises to Israel set forth  that Israel would possess Edom. Now Edom is  Turkey in Asia. And since Israel is to possess  Turkey, it'.follows that, since Britain is Israel,  Britain will shortly take charge of ancient Edom.  And bear in mind that Edom and Israel arc  brothers. One from Esau and the other from  Jacob.  During the war between Italy and Turkey, the  latter seeing that Italy would undoubtedly possess the land of Solium and its bay on the south  of the Mediterranean Sea did a strange thing.  Turkey, to save' Solium from Italy, gave this  large stretch of Africa to Britain, or what is the  same thing, to Egypt. And while I writs, Lord  Kitchner is supreme over Solium, as he represents  KfogJ&eorge ^-B^b6 Empire.'  * Is it not a mosji ^remarkable ..thing that Britain.  wjieh������r}at ws? or at peace, goes' on the same and  eats up the waste bits bt this earth! And she  does it quietly, peacefully, naturally, snd even  nonchslently. -What other power on this globe  could do this work in,a similar manner! None,  no not one.  And, rhstly, so fir as this talk goes, I shall ask  Bdy readout if they know that at this moment  British Vmk are tn possession of the EAST SIDE  of the STJH CANALT   Turkey in 1966 and in  1907,4rged tin Vy a certain European power, sent  soon of her troops to the east aids of the Buts>  Canal. - Britain r^qnired a removal, slid so insisted thai tiie soldiers of the Moslem retired and-  the Bed Goats of ths Briton took possession.  By  this set Oreat Britain seenred both sWjes of the  Canal, pushed lis? boldiug* farther eastward into--  OOOD FRIDAY AMD BAITER.  britub FAOiho ooax. oo.  For centuries Good Friday,and Easter have  been observed with a measure of religions devotion: the first in memory of the death of our  Saviour, and the second in honor of His resurrection.  } It is fitting that Good Friday shouldlie a day  ������������f sober tenderness for the Man of Galilee who  gave his life a sacrifice for the human race; on  the contrary, Easter should be a day of general  ^rejoicing in that our hope of a resurrection from  the dead and reunion beyond tiie grave are baaed  upon the certainties of the resurrection of our  Lord on the third dj.y after his trsgic death..  v The two memorials easily combine to form one  of chastened sorrow and exultant joy that.shsll  forever remind man that death and life alike are  made subserviant to hia needs by Him who holds  death and life in His hands.  LTvTNCWTONB'B OBHTEKARY.  The Christian world is emphasizing the life of  the immortal David Livingstone, the intrepid missionary and explorer, who one hundred years ago  made his advent into-this world in a little humble  cottage in Scotland. - -���������--.'���������  Human learning, eloquence and love are taxed  to their extreme capacity to do honor to this gen-  nine hero whose faith and benevolence lifted him  ont of obscurity and forced him to the top of the  ���������pinnacle of fame.  .

My answer is that there are hosts of splendid men  ���������and Women to be found in the ranks of paganism.  They are good in spite of their teachers and false  claims. This is true of all peoples and religions.  But the thing I would specially say is this: The  best men and women -on earth, independent of  their cult, are the spiritually minded, those whose  hearts are burning with love to Ood and man.  They are ministering spirits to all whom they  meet and influence. And all who are truly devoted to the higher life are good because they  hold sweet communion with their God, the Father  of life, love and a great salvation reaching past  this period down to distant ages.  All such characters are of inestimable value to  any nation or community.

Seldom have we witnessed an institution of  learning succeed so rapidly and persistently as  has the Success Business College on Main street  in Mount Pleasant. Principal E.

The pamphlet is known as that  branch's Bulletin Nov 36,. and is e:i  titled "Wood-using Industries of Ontario."  . .'."'; V-  For some years the Forestry Branch  has issued statistics as to the quantity and value, of wood' used in the  saw-mills, pulp-mills and other wood  manufacturing industries. The scopf  of this booklet, however, is different.  The tetm "wood-using industry," as  here used,, is intended to refer'particularly    to  those  industries  which  mands a lower price, however, than  Douglas fir, because pf the prejndtce  which exists against it.  When cut edge grain it makes an  excellent flooring material. It finishes  smoothly on account of the uniform  texture of the wood and it also wears  evenly. It is not suitable for use in  damp places on account of its tendency to warp under such conditions.:  As a finish lumber it has the advantage of containing practically no  pitch; it has a beautiful grain, Works  smoothly, takes stain readily and,  when properly dried, will not shrink  or swell materially under normal conditions. s It presents a comparatively  hard surface and consequently does  not mar easily. ��������� ���������  .Western hemlock slabs and edgings  are manufactured into lath, and as a  lath material it is equally as valuable  as Douglas fir or other wood. In this  form tbere Is-no distinction, made as  to species, all pieces of a ssitable form  to make lath bing thrown ln together  and used Indiscriminately.  It Is used to a large extent for barrels and boxes tor BhJpping foodstuffs. For this purpose it serves admirably,, since the wood is odorless  and tasteless. A great development  along this, line may be looked for  when British Columbia consumers  realize the true value of the wood, and  cease wasting it as at present.

Authentic data are fa&klngf with to-  gard ib the durability..of wfefltern hemlock as compared wttb Douglas fir  and other woods. Tiie general inr-  presslos Is that Douglas fir i* ike  more durable. A few experimeDts  a*ade to determine the adaptablUty of  western ��������� hemlock to- treatment with  liquid preservatives .Indicate that, as  compared to Douglas fir, it offevti  about the same resistance to impres  nation across the grain, but that it. is  easier to penetrate along the grain.  Western hemlock is well suited fn^  use in all but the heaviest construction work, as shown by results of tests  which have been made, but up to the.  present time it has had a limited use  in bridges and treBtles. It bas been  used in some -Instances for. caisson  construction.  A considerable amount is cut into  cross tfes. Many of the western railroads use Douglas fir, western.larch,  redwood and western hemlock ox  clusively for tie material.' A largo  percentage of these ties are laid without preservative treatment.. Occa  slonally it is cut into telephone or  telegraph poles, but its use in this  form has been very limited. It has  the requisite, strength for pole Use  and grows in such dimension^.as to  make it very suitable for this class of  work. With a good treatment with  some efficient preserving fluid it  should give good service a* a pole  material. ,  Though practically all piling in the  province is of Douglas fir, western  hemlock is used to a limited extent,  however, for this class of work and  has aparently given satisfaction.  In house construction it is ueed a  great deal as a framing material. For  this class of work it serves as well as  Dsuglas fir. and locally commands the  same price.

Compared with  the previous year this, production  ���������hows an increase of |29,90S,495wtNr  nearly 19 pe^ cent. The mineral output la JStl, Jiowsver, was somewhat  iresirlotedjjp^^ extsaded u  GOOD TEETH- ������!g%%ar!  kiA in nt-j> off lantmaa  Of the total production in 1912 a  value of $.61*177,989, or nearly 46 per  cent., is credited to the metals,   and  $71,949,500, or 54 per cent., to non-  metallic products.    With, the exepv  tioh of petroleum every mineral mined,  in Canada shows an increased production in 1912, in so tar an value ia  concerned.   In the case of silver only  is there a decrease In quantity,   and  this slightly leBB than 2 per cent., the  increase in total value of silver being  due to the much higher price obtained  for the metal during the year. Among  the'metals, Increases in quantity ot  output are  shown as  follows:    pig  iron, 10.5 percent; gold, 28 per cent.;  copper, 40 per Cent, and lead, 50 pets]  cent.   On 'account of the generally  higher prices of the metals' the, in*  creases in total value of output considerably   exceed   the   increases   in  quantity, and are as follows: silver,  12 per cent, copper, 85 per cent, and  lead 93 per cent  ��������� The    morst    Important, increases  among non-metallic  products  are  in  coal, gypsum and cement.

".:,. ..'.;  It is a matter of;'regret to have to  .report a continued decrease in tho  production of petroleum.   The Canadian output of this  product a few  years ago was about 50 per cent cf  domestic consumption..   At the present time not over 5 per cent of Canada's consumption of petroleum and  its products is derived, from domestic  sources.    .    /.' ..���������  . ,  , The record, of production by' Province's given above, shows some slight  changes In the relative importance of  the production of each.   The   only  change In the order of magnitude of  output is that Alberta, the production  o'f which had exceeded that of Quebec  In 1910, but fallen below again j:������  1911, on account of Its restricted coel  output, again takes premier place in  1912. Ontario is still the largest contributor to the total, being credited  with , 38 per cent.; or |51,023;134;  British Columbia comes second with  32 per cent, or $29,665,323; Nova  Seotla third with 818,848,384. or I'  per cent; Alberta fourth with $18.

"You don't need medicine," the physician told him. "You need a complete  change of living. Go away to some  "quiet place for six weeks. Go to bed  early, eat plenty of roast beef, drink  plenty of good, rich milk, and smoke  just one cigar a day."  Six week6 later the patient walked  into the doctor's office looking like a  new man, and the doctor told him so.  "Your advice certainly did the work,  doctor. I wefit to tbe quiet place, and  did all the things you told nie to. But  say, doctor, that one-cigar a day nearly  killed me. It's no joke starting to  smoke at my time of life."

"We had best follow bis lead," be  said, drawing Paul's arm through his.  "Right you are, old man," he said,  addressing the dog. "get ahead if you  insist on dragging us Into your affairs." -  With a glad bark, he rushed on in  front, and they lost sight of him ln  the dim distance, but turning an angle, and looking down one of the narrow, devious paths, they spied him  midway, patiently and expectantly  awaiting them.    4  "What.ls he standing over?" Paul  asked.  Felix paused, unclasped bis friend's  band, uttered an. unintelligible exclamation, ran forward/ and bent over the  prostrate form ot a man. Paul reached him just aa, after tumbling with  tbe matches, ha struck a light. It was  a young man, tall aad fair. In evening  dress. He lay on his side, his gun  near him, V crimson stain upon his  shirt bosom between the gleam ot bis  diamond ituda. His blue eyes were  half open, snd his teeth clenched under the small blonde moustache.

"You mustn't take this too much to  heart," Felix said; with a kindlr Sympathetic pressure on his arm.  "Tell me," he gasped. "Is it��������� ?"  His voice failed him, only his Quivering lips framed the word "suicide."  "Hush!" Felix whispered,   looking  around about through the glimmering  indiaflnctness. and raising his hand  to Impress' caution, "it was an accident, he is still alive, and please God  he will live to be a hale old man.

"I Buppose you were on your v?ay  for me?" tie doctor remarked, back  ing into the hedge to turn around, and  hooking the leather apron over Paul's  knees.

It was  a dogcart hex perceived, a high, solid,,  useful vehicle, carrying a second man  lolling with folded arms at the hack  of it, and in a few seconds they had  overtaken and -slowed down beside  him.  "Hello, there!" the driver exclaimed.  "Are you Anthony Pelham?"  "No," he answered, twisting around  and peering intently into the man's  face; "do you know him? Are you  a friend of his?"  "Yes to both questions," the man  said, laughing. "I've just been to  Weyberne Lodge, and found bim out.  When I saw you in "the distance I  thought I had spotted my man."

He went out .to the steps to listen,  and turned his dark, anxious face to  the grey mass of drifting clouds hovering above the house like a great brooding human trouble. Little soft gusts  of homeless night winds cooled his  fprehead and the fever in hia veins,  and in a measure calmed the tumult  of doubt and confusion in his busy  brain.  Hark! There were low voices and  delayed footsteps in the stone passages. Felix was speaking ,and tha  doctor as punctuating his sentences  with little running comments. "I'll  come with you to the gate," he heard  Felix say, and they passed on and  were out of earshot before Dr. Hunter  spoke again."

He hired a detective to watcb Mr  Deane and report to blm lf tho nctor  were ever again seen ln Mabel's com  pany,  after  wbicb  drastic  measures  would betaken.  It Was pot Ions before the detective  reported that .Deane and Miss Worth  ington wfo*e ��������� teen Sitting side by side  at a matlpee.   The meeting was re  ported  to the banker,   who told  his  daughter that be bad heard of tier dis  obedience to bis order and if she defied  him  again  he  would  send  her  away  where she would have u<* o-t  Dortunity to see the actor..-...A'clnudes  Mne meeting took  place soon after  this, in which Mabel told ber.lover of  her fsther's threat, which she knew .  he would make good. '  The same evening she bad an Interview wjtli her father. .In which she  told blm tbat he must look to Mr  Deane to fulfill his orders. If the playwright Joined her be did it on bis  own responsibility, and ber father  must ceil him and not her to account  for such action. This was something  of a relief to the parent, who would  rather deal with a man than a worn  an. even If that woman were his own  daughter. He did not doubt that  Mabel would assist her lover rather  than her father in any contest that  might arise between the two, but be  considered himself a twitch for both.  Within a-fortnight his detective re  ported that the lovers bad been seen  together. Mr. Wortblngton spoke to  his daughter about the "matter and  asked her if It were true. She replied  that; as tht had Informed blm. be must  settle alt each questions with Mr  Deane end ahe bad nothing to any.

Deane wrote a reply stating that he  had not left his residence at A. on  the day bo was reported to have met  M*������e Worthlngtoa.  4t -bird report of a nteetlng between  the lovers came to Mr. Wortblngton,  but not through either of bis detectives.

The person report  Ing the meeting was a sister of Mr.  Wortblngton. who, ln tht event of Ua  daughter's death or disinheritance,  would inherit the principal pt*tt of hit  property. He telephoned at once to  his spy In A; asking If tbt playwright  waa ttea ln hit home on the day aad  hour named.
