 >Wy'' " ������������������ I ?K    L^  IfPl^Pfl  P������  VOLUME IV  (By Professor E. Odium.M.A.. B.Sc)  Ste says the Vancouver "Daily. Sun.''   And this  it journalistic luminary ought to know.   The  ^d editor does the Prof essor much honor in the  production of a certaifrrTacy series of remarks  fry Mr* Hughes, the "satiric" writer, attached to  Tie staff of the London, England, "Daily News."  Of course, when such great journals as the Van.  juver Sun and the London Daily News give space  j the ''learned professor," and when literary  falters so famed give so much attention to this  j������an Odium, he naturally feels bashful but greatly,  >liged for honor thus copiously shed upon his  imble endeavors in a journalistic way.  That element which is most pleasing in this  .iiole matter7is the fact that the Vancouver Sun,  Ided by thei Daily News' "satirist" are impelled  i give the Prof essor this public attention through  fell known loving-kindness and a warm fellow-  eling.  '���������'  I presume that the Sun is read by several scores  'thousands, and the Daily News must surely be  lad by half a million. This is flattering to the  lan who "attracts attention." He certainly en-  ������ys the good work these giant journals are doing  M* him. More power to their nimble pen-nibs.  [However, it would be a,treat to get at the modus  jerandi of the production by these two dailies in  fetation to Professor Odium.  ,1 wonder what was the exact process by which  ,ie "Western Call'' got into the hands of the  (itirical Mr. Hughes. Who sent him the Western  .ill, and why?  i Then again, why did Mr. Hughes give so much  ftention to Odium, a man so far away from old  ugland, and so completely unknown to the sa-  histf  Furthermore, how did the Hughes produc-  >n in the Daily News come to the office of the  J-ancouver Sun? And when it got there, how did  le ssid Hughes article come into such prominence,  Jad find so much valuable space in our Terminal  |ity luminary? And once more, who in the Sun  ice set the machinery to work to say so much  out Odium, and WHY?  It may seem strange for me to say it, but still  venture to make ������P guess. X see -the cloven n$of,  ie forked tail and smell the burning sulphur of  ie living cause1 of the London letter, and its pro-  action in Vancouver.  I may say to the Western Call readers that tiie  ���������tele referred to, which Mr. Hughes was so good  write- seems to have grown out of my article  , the Western Call oh "Prairie Parasites."  I This article seems to have set other big presses  t work, aud wonderfully stirred up considerable  rain storms in certain cerebral centres. The  oroments of Mr. Hughes on my article are quite  seless to base an answer upon, as his criticisms  re hurled at short quotations, which are broken  rom their logical and sequential setting.  But this I can say: The Sun and Mr. Hughes  nust be of opinion that the Professor's article on  'Prairie Parasites" is so strong and telling tbat  hey give much time and vast quantities of news-  iaper to throw up a rampart against its effects on  ie public.     .  Perhaps one of the chief troubles is the fact  lat "the learned gentleman of the Western Call"  i too much of, an Imperialist for the Daily News  nd the Sun, which papers reflect the ancient  grasshopper" spirit often out of the twelve spies  'ho were sent to spy out. the Promised Land,  hey said,���������"We be grasshoppers."

Ford  Ottawa, April 1.���������That the Liberals' when they  went to their constituencies at Easter found that  they were very much "in wrong" on the naval  issue and that the lesson they then learned has  been taken to heart is very evident from the chastened attitude that they have been taking since  the House resumed its sittings last Tuesday. It is  a meek Opposition that now faces the Government,  anxious to have the House and the country forget  the turbulence they created and the Parliamentary  anarchy they sought to create, and striving to  atone by a more or less mild behavior for the  secessionist doctrine that was so startling and so  notorious during the second week of the obstruction of the navy bill.  But the fact remains that it is still the party  that talked of the "Boston Tea Party," the party  whose leaders read the American Declaration of  Independencetand found in it and in the historic  struggle that it prefaced their parallels for the  present situation. True, this good behavior may  not last. The outside element that by its sinister  influence dominated the councils of the party  within the House and led it into unparalelled excesses under the leadership of Hon. William Pugsley may once again become dominant and add still  further to the degradation into which Liberalism  has been brought in the eyes of the people of  Canada.  The course of the Government has been made  very clear by Premier Borden in thje two mani-,  festoes which he has recently issued; These public utterances have cleared away the clouds which  the Liberal orators have sought to raise in an endeavor to hide the real issue. The Premier showed  that his proposals were a temporary plan for  Canada to do something big, something prompt  and something effectual for the strengthening of  the naval defences of the Empire. Canada has  lagged shamefully behind the other Overseas Dominions and the Conservative plan is, at one  stroke, to redeem the good name of the Dominion.  The permanent policy will be formulated later,  after further consultation with the admiralty arid  will be submitted to the people before it becomes  law. The Premier showed that the ships dould not  possibly be built before the next election is held.  If the country should decide in favor of the Laur-;  ier plan it would still be possible to utilize 'the  Dreadnaughts for the proposed Canadian fleet  units. This statement has absolutely cut the  ground from underneath the Liberal obstruction  and gives the Opposition no justification for continuation of its tactics. Their main plea for obstruction was that Mr. Borden had decided on contributions as the permanent policy for the Dominion. This the Premier has declared to be absolutely incorrect. The Liberal appeal that the  country should be consulted as an excuse for  blockading is equally ridiculous, as before anything final can be done the people will be consulted.  If, the Liberals continue their policy of holding  up the business of the country, closure will be, introduced, for the Premier is determined that Parliamentary anarchy must cease, and that Canada  shall have role by majority, not by minority.  The amendments to the rules which have been  proposed to facilitate business of the House have  already, been prepared and a copy has been sent  to the leader of the Opposition.   Notice of the  closure has not yet been given by the Premier;  whether it comes or net will depend entirely upon  the Opposition. The Premier would much prefer  to have the bill, pass without any changes in the  rules being made necessary, but be. will not hesitate to take such a course if the Liberals assume  an attitude that makes this necessary.  That the Government is determined to maintain  the inland waterways of the country to the point  required to properly handle the commerce of the  country was made evident by the discussion in  the House on Thursday afternoon when the general question of the improvement of the St. Lawrence River led on to the further and larger question of improving the inland system generally.  The department of marine, which Hon. J. D. Hazen  is administering with such notable efficiency, ia  about to undertake a very important investigation  into the effect which the continued dredging of  the St. Lawrence River is having upon the water  levels of that great waterway.   If it is found that  the tendency is to reduce these levels, it is likely  that a plan will be adopted of providing what are  known as "compensatory works." these being in  the form of partial dams which will tend to hold  the water back and restore the, levels generally,  while at the same time maintaining the deep water  channel from Montreal to the sea.   It is unnecessary to say that this is of extreme importance to  the whole of Eastern Canada, but of even more  general importance is the attention that is being  given to the larger system of the Oreat Lakes and  connecting waters.   From the ports at the head  of Like Superior to the foot of Lake Erie there is  todair a 30-foot channel.   The deepening of the  Weliand Canal to the same depth will extend this  deep waterway to the foot of Lake Ontario: Ifrom  Montreal to the ocean there is similar depth.  This  leaves but one portion of the whole system un-  ipiroyided for****-that is the section between Lake  Ontario and Montreal where a system of small  canals still prevails. ~ In the House on Thursday  Premier Borden intimated that the Government  had had brought before it the duty of also dealing  with; this section and of making it conform to the  bataisce of the waterways., He, intimated further  that ise carrying out of the gi*at wbrjk^h^  be necessary might be facilitated by the joint action of Canada and the State bf New York, the  government of that state having given indication  of readiness to consider such an undertaking. One  point that was emphasized by a member from  Western Ontario, Mr. W. M. German, was the possibilities present of generating electrical energy in  large amount through harnessing the waterpowers  on the St. Lawrence along between Lake Ontario  and Montreal.  The economic importance of a completed 30-foot  channel from Fort William to the ocean can hardly  be overstated. It would mean that cargoes of from  two to three hundred thousand bushels of grain  could be carried direct from Fort William and  Port Arthur to Liverpool, instead of the changes  from ship to rail and back again to ship necessary  under the'present state of affairs. Such an improved condition as would result from a clear  waterway-to the sea for Canadian grain could not  fail to build up a great Canadian carrying fleet  and stimulate Canadian shipbuilding.

Year-book of the United States  Department of Agriculture, 1911, Washington,  1912.)  Farmers are said to be responsible for nearly 90  per cent of the approximately 1,000,000 acres of  forest plantations in the United States today. Of  these 1,006.000 acres, 860,000 arc found in the so-  called central treeless region (States of Illinois,  Iowa, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, the prairie district of Minnesota, and portions of Oklahoma and Texas west of the hardwood belt) 100,-  000 acres east of it, and 40,000 acres west.  1  In the older settled portion of the treeless region  the area of planted timber is decreasing. Plantations of such rapid-growing species as white wil  low, soft maple, and common cotton-wood, established 30 or 40 years ago chiefly for the protection from winds- are not being cut, because they  are mature and for the most part arc situated on  land which is more valuable for agriculture than  for" the production of timber of low value. Future  planting in this region is then likely to be confined  to the establishment of narrow belts of some coniferous tree for the protection of farm buildings or  to the production of timber from some rapid growing species as hardy catalpa.  In the ther portions of this treeless region planting is on the increase, chiefly for the purpose  (Continued on Page 8)  PRINTING, THE LATEST AND BEST, DONE  with  dispatch by  skilled  workmen, at  the  Terminal City Press, Ltd., Cor. 8th and Westminster  Road, Phone Fairmont 111+0.

Here, on the Pacific Coast*  Spring tiptoes into our presence without parade,  the witchery of Nature's inimitable mvfaic or any  distinguishing demonstration to arouse our contented' senses and indifferent sensibilities.  The contrast is emphasized by the scarcity of  wild birds and domestic animals in this land of  money-madness and dearth of aesthetics.  MONlYPAMlHfc  A money-famine threatens thia Western ,coun- ���������  try today.   It may be traced to several causes,  among which are the European war situation, the  lack of industrial and agricultural enterprises,  and especially the Over speculation in real estate.  Enlarging upon these, we may predict an early  settlement of the Balkan war since Turkey officially accepts the terms of peace proposed by the  European Powers. This/when consummated, wm  open the money vaults and put their contenta in  circulation. The whole world will share in the  benefit, but British Columbia will not escape from  the embarrassments now experienced because industrial and agricultural interests are almost  either absent or strangled in birth. Investigation will satisfy that wild speculation in real estate is the chief cause of depression. So long aa'-'{  outsiders were rushing in and buying lots prosperity smiled on our streets and in every place of  business, but when the influx of money ceased,  our revenue supply was cut off. Not haying industrial or agricultural pursuits to giv$ employment to our people and to furnish tha wherewith  to live, empty purses result -, idle workmen, disappointed and dissatisfied citizens complain, leave  their holdings and go elsewhere to publish us as  robbers and incompetent failures. The liigh price  of real estate in |;r^ish Columbia is practically  ^prohibitive and suicidal. The present money  shortage was easily f orseen and could have been  prevented.

Winston Churchill claims that the  Canadian ships are necessary to maintain sunt'  cient strength in 1916.  While Canada is spending months over the  question of $35,000,000 to add to the strength of  our Empire, Australia is planning much larger  additions cheerfully and without opposition.  With the modified tones of the Opposition the  Government is able to make some progress in  business. They have voted $27,000,000 supply,  which is about one-sixth of the whole estimates  for the new fiscal year.  The sudden death of J. P. Morgan removes one  Of the greatest and best of the world's financiers  from the tangible sphere of business activity.  Money-making did not blind him to the infinitely  greater things of life.  April first finds Turkey willingly accepting the  terms of peace proposed by the Powers. The acceptance is accompanied by hearty expressions  of thanks for their kind mediation.  Plucky, but over-confident Servia and Montenegro continue to bombard the Scutari forts notwithstanding the note from the Powers advising  discontinuance. The will of the powers must be  respected.

In all matters related to British Columbia H.  H.

" How to Cook a husband "  "A good many husbands are utterly spoiled by mismanagement. Some women  keep them constantly in hot water; others let them freeze by their carelessness  and indifference. Some keep them in a stew by irritating ways and words; others  roast them. Some keep them in a pickle all their lives. It cannot be supposed  that any husband will be tender and good, managed in this way, but they are  really delicious when properly treated,. In selecting your husband, you should  not be guided by the silvery appearance, as in buyuing mackerel, nor by the  golden tint, as if you wanted salmon; be sure you select him yourself, as tastes  differ. Do not go to the market for him, as the best are always brought to your  door. It is far better to have none unless you will patiently learn how to cook  him. A preserving kettle of finest porcelain is best, but if you have nothing but  an earthenware pipkin, it will do, with care. See that the linen in which you  wrap him is nicely washed and mended, with the required number of buttons  and strings sewed on. Tie bim in the kettle by a strong .silk cord called comfort,  as the one called duty is apt to be weak and they are apt to fly out ot the kettle  and be burned and crusty on the edges, since, like crabs and lobsters, you have  to cook them alive. Make a clear, steady fire out of love, cheerfulness and  neatness. Set him as near to this as seems -to agree witl him. If he sputters  and fizzles, do not be anxious; some husbands do this unti|they are quite done..  Add a little sugar in the form of what confectioners call kisses, but no vinegar ���������  or pepper of any account. A little spice improves them, but it must be used ���������'  with judgment. Do not stick any sharp instrument into him to see if he is  becoming tender. Stir him gently;' watch'the while, lejrt he Ue too flat and too  close to the kettle, and so become useless. You cannoT fail to7 know when he is  done.  If*thus treated, you will find him very digestible, agreeing, nicely witb you  and the children, and he .wjll keep as long as ybuu want,,unless you become  careless and set him in too cold a place." .     ��������� i.  --  Appropriate Quotations that  Appear in this Book  "The proof of tbe pudding is in the eating."  / ���������  "Such and so various are the tastes of men."���������Akenside  "A delicate odor as ever hit my nostril."  ���������   '-.- . ���������Shakespeare.  ��������� ���������*.

Vancouver Horse Show  Some Marvellous Items of Growth-���������  New Records Created in Every Direction $8000 in Cash Prizes 1000  Blooded Animals Will Be There 180  Classes, 60 Championships���������Second  Largest Show in the World.  With each day of this modern age  old records go by the board and new  standards are set up that to the un-  itiated are indeed remarkable. For  years we have heard of the onward  sweep of the automobile; we have also  thought many of us that with the  popularity of the horseless vehicle the  horse must sink into disuse and  oblivion.  But one great fact is borne home  to us that the better class of horse is  in greater demand than ever, costs  more and is receiving more attention  from breeders. This is proven by the  intense interest taken in Vancouver  British Columbia, and the entire North  West in the sixth annual Vancouver  Horse Show, which is scheduled for  April 21st to 26th at Vancouver.  It will in many respects be a world  beater, location and environment considered. While the Olympia show of  London is and has always been the  largest in the world, outranking Madison Square Garden Show of New York.  It will have 180 classes, of which  71 are for breeding purposes only; it  will have over 1000 blooded exhibits;  award over 700 ribbons, distribute  $8,000 in cash and donate some twenty  magnificent trophies, including the  famous one from the Duke of Connaught for draught horses.

The plan is not to show the things  man produces, but to protray the  history of man's progress through the  ages by exhibits of the methods employed at all stages of his development in all kinls of industrial pursuits,  the arts, and, so far as possible, in  ethnological and anthropogical studies.  The prime object of the San Diego  Exposition is to show the home-seekers  and the capitalist the opportunities  now existing for the development of  homes and natural resources throughout the Western coast of the American  continents. Nearly every WeBtern  state will have elaborate exhibits,  demonstrating their resources and  activeness to the prospective settler.  Nearly all of the countries of Central  America and several in South America,  reaching out for immigrants and capital, also will install exhibits.

The witnesses from  various parts of the country will be  heard next week and following the  taking of their evidence the committee will discuss the clauses around  which most of the criticism of the  present banking system centres.  F. B. McCurdy, the young member  for Shelbourne and Queen's, who defeated Hon. W. S. Fielding and who  as a prorgessive financier has studied  financial and banking problems has of.  fered several new amendments to the  act. Mr. McCurdy has very decided  views on the bank act and is particularly anxious to see depositors given  ample protection. Mr. McCurdy, as t  matter of fact, while seldom heard ln  the House, is making a name for himself at Ottawa through the soundness  of his advice and his sane criticism ln  both the banking and railway commit,  tees. One amendment which Mr. McCurdy proposes is that a proxy must  be signed within three months of any  bank meeting instead of two years as  the law now stands. Another amendment is that depositors as well as  shareholders have the right to inspect  lists of transfers of shares. At present  this right is extended only to share,  holders and Mr. McCurdy feels that it  is only right that depositors should be  allowed the same privilege in order to  know what is their security.  Other important amendments are  proposed by Mr. Middlebro, member  for North Grey, Ontario. He asks that  the act require that the shareholders'  auditor shall be selected only after  the election of directors; that no newly directed auditor or director in the  previous year shall vote on the ap.  pointment of such auditor, and that if  at the annual meeting one-fourth of  the shareholders request a special  audit or Inspection the minister of ft.  nance shall appoint the special auditor  who will report to him as to his investigations.  The minister of finance, Hon. W. T.  White, has stated his desire that the  Ready to take advantage of every  logical opening for the advancement  of Canadian commerce the Government has introduced: tbe legislation  necessary to come under the provi.  sions of the treaty which was concluded between Great Britain and Japan  in 1911 and the provisions of which  apply to Canada by this country tak.  ing the necessary steps, Canada gets  favored nation treatment by commg  under the pact, something that is of  notable importance in view of the  opening up of the Orient and the  growing trade between this continent  and the nations of Asia. Trade be*  tween Japan and Canada already  amounts to some three and a half  -sMion dollars a year. This new  treaty, which must be signed by May  5 according to the terms of the Anglo.  Japanese agreement, will, it is believed give a decided impetus to com.  merce between the two countries. It  should be specially advantageous to  the growing flour industry of the prairie provinces as Japan is a big im.  porter of this commodity.  Tbe Government has guarded Canada's immigration rights by inserting  a clause that makes it absolutely clear  that the control ot immigration from  Japan to Canada shall be vested as It  ought to be, in the parliament of the  Dominion. The safeguard thus afforded  is in line with the action taken by tn������  United States Government in asent.  ing to a similarl7 proviso to the. recent/treaty between the Government  of Japan and the Government of the  United States. *  It will be remembered that the for.  mer treaty with Japan which was' ratified by parlCfthment in January 1907  gave to Japanese subjects full liberty  to enter, travel or reside in any part  of Canada. Subsequently an arrange,  ment was entered into between the  late Government of Canada and the  Government of Japan by which the  Japanese Government undertook to restrict and control within certain limits  emigration from Japan to Canada. It  was strongly objected that tbis ar.  rangement gave to the Government of  Japan a control which ought to be  exercised by the Government and  parliament of Canada. In 1903 parliament passed an act respecting immi.  gration wbicb contains very important  provisions, among which are'sections  37 and 38 whicb 'are as follows:  37. "Regulations made by the governor in council under this act may  provide as a condition to permission  to land in Canada that Immigrants  and tourists shall possess in their own  right money to a prescribed minimum  amount, which amount may van* according to race, occupation or destination of such' immigrant or tourist *a&  otherwise according to the clrcnai.  stances; snd may also provide that all  persons coming to Canada directly or  Indirectly from countries which Issn*  passports or penal certificates to tot*  sons leaving auch countries, shall pro.  dace such passports or penal certli*  cates on demand of the iaatlgratlen  officer in'charge before being allowed  to land in Canada."  38. "The governor In council may,  by proclamation or order, whenever he  deems it necessary or expedient:  (a) Prohibit the landing in Canada  or at any specified port of entry la  Canada of any Immigrant who has  come to Canada- otherwise than by  continuous Journey from the country  of which he is a native or naturalised  citizen, and upon a through ticket  purchased in that country, or prepaid  in Canada.  (b) Prohibits the landing in Canada  of passengers brought to Canada hy  any transportation company which refuses or neglects to comply with the  provisions of this act; '  (c) Prohibit for a stated period, or  permanently, the landing in Canada,  or the laniding at any specified port of  entry in Canada, of immigrants belonging to any race deemed unsuitable  to the climate or requirements of Can.  ada, or of immigrants of any specified  class, occupation or character."  Now Canada is taking every precaution to protect this country from any  Asiatic invasion.

Am I old or!  ugly or mis-shapen tbat you avoid me?,  I might as well be a leper, or some  VUrty, rheumatic, infirm old-crone."     |  |   "As soon as I became aware of your,  feelings towards me, Mrs. Wycherly,  and being conscious of my inability  to return tt, I considered lt my duty!  |to avoid you." I  I "Will you please tell me why you  eannot return it?" I  ,   "Because you are not the kind of  1 woman -I could love." j  "In what way?"  "In every way; nothing about you  "But you won't, why should you?. I  am rich, beautiful, young, and devoted  to you. When I looked ln the glass  tbis morning I knew, though you might  make a show of resistance at first, you  would succumb ln the long run. Don't  you think lt ls more natural for a woman, so gloriously beautiful aa I, to  wish to gather roses ln the sunshine,  to long for a lover's arms, for his fren-  sled kisses, to give herself body and  soul, Into his dear keeping/than to  let her heart throb away Its youth in  solitude?"  "I can't say," he said, dubiously;  "my nature ls a cold one, but I am not  the only man in creation, Mrs. Wycherly. There are hundreds of men,  better born, better bred; moneyed  men, worthier In every way than I am.  Men whom you could captivate, and  Inflame with the passion you desire,  who would be proud to win you, proud  to call you wife. Why, ln the name  of common sense, have you fixed on  me? A nameless pauper, a man who  has to earn every mouthful of food he  eats,' who Is ln reality no more than  a servant ln the house of one of your  friends, whose means of subsistence  depend entirely upon his health and  brain power, and should one or the  other collapse he would drift like a  helpless log into obscurity."  "I want, to save you from such a  fate. I don't care a straw tor the  world's opinion. Whether you were  born witn a golden spoon in your  mouth or a metal one. It's all the  same to me.

"So you gave ti������s ball, put yourself  -to all this trouble and lavish expenditure, Just to tell me that you loved  me?"  "Dont look at me like that," she  said, pulling a petal from the orchid  in bis coat, back again to her wilful,  wayward trifling; "not that alone, but  to ask you to marry me."  what contemptuously, "you realiy  make me laugh���������you can't coisyil a  man to marry you."  "Laugh Ly all means," she said, with  a quietness tbat was more formidable  than any violence, "I can wait until  your mirth has subsided. Up here,  away from the world, alone with you,  I can wait until the crack of doom."  "Wait fcr what?" he asked, beginning to st&mp his foot.  "For your decision. Once again,  Paul Farley, will you rrarry me?"  "No," he said, standing erect, in  calm composure. "I will not, and  nothing on earth shall make me."  "Then you take the consequences ot  your refusal?" she asked, throwing out  her arms as if freeing herself from  imaginary bonds.  "Will you tell me the consequence  that I may get it over quickly?" he  asked, inclined to smile at her dramatic gestures.  "I'll show you," she said, going to  the untapestried recess and taking  some object from a table patterned  with rich mosaic work. "This little  friend has stood me in good stead before to-day."  "Mrs. Wycherly," he shouted,  springing towards her, "for heaven's  sake don't act like a mad woman!"  "Keep back," she commanded, in a  hoarse, warning voice, "or I'll kill you  outright."  He stood still, fascinated, his eyes  on hers, staring at her strange beauty.  He did not for one moment doubt her,  lt was no idle boast, the woman was  in deadly earnest.  "I don't know whether you are  afraid of death," she said in a voice  so altered and distorted that it terrified him to listen to her, "but I am  not. I would rather lie peacefully in  my coffin' than drag out a long, solitary, miserable existence. I have suffered enough, as much as a human  heart can bear before the ultimate,  the final breakdown. My bodily health  all along has been good, but in mind  I have1 been ill, terribly ill, and now  that this crisis has come and Death.is  -at my elbow, it's not so very dreadful  to go away with him  "Mrs. Wycherly," he whispered, his  heart in his throat, "you can't mean  to do yourself a mischief? You won't  surely do anything so wild and wicked.  You say you love me, and yet you  would embitter my life with the poisoned knowledge that I bad been the  cause of your awful, irreparable sin."  She smiled, a pitying smile, as if she  felt a great compassion for his simplicity.  "I am hot going to leave you behind  a prey either to remorse or as booty  for AgheSyFletning, or any other woman vulture who may cross your path.  I shall send you first, and wherever  you go I shall follow.

"The witching hour of midnight!"  she said, with a soft laugh, lowering  her arm a morsel, so that tbe nozzle  of tbe pistol covered the region of his  heart, and then a silence settled ovei  the room, which fell thicker,, heavier,  and deadlier as tbe minutes ticked  themselves out.  Faintly, at intervals, he could heat  the deep-toned, long-draws notes ol  the bass viol. They were dancing  again, his friends, flirting, laughing,  Joking, all unconscious of his peril.

Perfect Health Is coordination or harmony between Mental and Physical, a condition ln  which the brain has free and  uninterrupted communication  with every part of the body.  Disease is inco-ordination or  discord, the communication between the brain and the diseased part being hindered.  Therefore, to bring a sick person back to health, co-ordination must be restored, there  must be free communication between the brain and the diseased part, the hindrance must  be removed.  Drugs and prescriptions do  not restore co-ordination. They  are supposed to act on the diseased part which is physical.  Operations cut out the diseased  physical part, and do not restore co-ordination.  Christian Scientists, Mental  Healers and others work on the  mental part by giving suggestion, etc. This does not restore  co-ordination.  Now  See  the  Difference  A Chiropractor, hy Spinal Adjustment, removes the pressure  which is hindering, communica*  v tion between the brain and the  seat of trouble.

She clung to him with a sudden  gust of passion, as if the contact of  bis lips had added fuel <-to the flame  burning beneath the heave and swell  of her perfect bosom.   .  "You'll marry me soon, won't you,  Paul?" she asked, letting him go reluctantly.  "We'll talk of that, another day." he  said .decisively, "your duty now is to  your guests." |  "I mean to love, honor and obey,";  she said, with a joyous laugh, "so I'll  commence being obedient at once.  She drew a tiny silver whistle from]  the body of her gown, communicating  a   subtle,   cautious   meaning  to her,  summons.    His acute,  sensitive ear \  caught the slight grating of the turn*!  ing loch, and before she fully realised  his purpose, he bowed, strode to the  door, opened it, dashed past the stal- j  wart yellow statue, and leaped down  the stairs like a deer. <'    j  Meanwhile Felix, after a long and  unsuccessful search for Paul, prompt* j  ly found Agnes another partner, and  went away to solace himself with a  third cigar.   He was leaning against (  the wall in the   corridor,   leisurely!  smoking and watching the   bustling  servants,   me   sauntering, thronging,  light-hearted couples, his keen eyes  dh the look-out for a dark, refined,  Intellectual face, when, suauenly and  unexpectedly, he saw   his   renegade  friend come bounding down the stairs.  "Hello, there, Farley!" he exclaimed, stepping forward'too late to Inter-.  cept his rapid progress. |  "What on earth's the matter?" he  asked himself, staring at the open  doorway through which Paul had disappeared into th nigfit. "The fellow  came down that stairway as if the  devil himself were behind him." And  without more ado he followed him out  into the grounds. j  The Squire's eyes were strong and  long-sighted, and ured to scanning uncertain objects op dark nights in all  weathers, and without the aid Of the  moon through the rifted clouds he ,  could have discerned' Paul's white  shirt-front against the background ot  sable landscape. He was on the further side of the huge sweep of lawn.  Bitting on a rustic bench, his arms,  folded, his chin on his breast. j  "What cheer?   Anything special on :  the carpet?" he asked with jaunty indifference,  sitting down beside  him, ]  and taking a good steady look at his  pale face.  "I���������I'm nci well, perhaps I've  danced too much, anyway don't bother  me, Felix," he said deprecatingly, putting a shaky hand on his shoulder.  It was the first time he had used  his. Christian, name, and Felix made a  mental note of it.  "But you won't stay here without  hat or coat?" he Inquired, "you're not  used to an outdoor life, you'll take  cold."7 ,  "No, I'll���������I think I'll go home.  Would you mind fetching my cap and  Inverness?" he asked diffidently, "I  would rather hot return to the house."  "Certainly, I will," he said, jumping  up with alacrity. "Can I do anything  else for you? Wbat will you fcp*ve to  take? I daresay I can smuggle a half-  pottle of champagne, or Rhine wine if  you prefer it. Sir Thomas and I split  a bdttle of dry hock of really a very  decent bouquet, would you���������"  "Don't bring me anything, it would  choke me," he protested. "Tbis lovely fresh wind is stimulant enough."  "Delicious!" Felix breathed, moving  off, then returning a few steps, he  said: "Report says, Farley, that our  charming hostess,has some genuine  Tokay in her wine-bin���������pure blood of  tbe grape, you know���������so genuine and  desirable that connoisseurs of the  vineyard bave offered her f 180 a dozen  for her hoard. If Mrs. Wycherly only  knew your knees were Jostling one  another and your teeth chattering she  would doubtless gather up ber flimsy  skirts, beard tbe spiders in tbeir  webs, and dive into the bowels of her  cavernouB cellar for your sole and entire delegation."  He said it jestingly, with no other  design or motive than to rally his desponding friend,. but Paul, watching  bim over the grass, knew tbat the gist  of his innocent remark was tbe essence of truth, soon to he an embodied  fact, and he groaned aloud ln his Impotence to do aught save wait on  events.  He looked up at the firmament, and  as he did so a star shot across it and  appeared to drop into the misty  swamp of the marshes. Presently another followed suit, and then another  In quick succession. He sat watching  the Bky and musing, when suddenly  the phenomena presented a simple  soothing suggestion, a way to settle a  point that had teased him for the last  ten minutes.  "If I see another shooting star before Felix returns I'll take it as a good  omen, and tell bim now to-night without troubjrng to think the matter out  first.   If not I'll keep it to my���������"  Felix touched him before he was  aware of his approach. The phenomena had not had time to repeat itself,  and the few spare stars in tbe dark  heavens twinkled palely as If assuring  him the yhad no Intention of falling  from their high estate.    '  "You've been quick," he said.  "I meant to be," Felix rejoined  briskly. "Get up, that vapory moisture hovering above the marshland  will wet you to the skin in no time."  He rose somewhat stiffly, and  swayed as if he were not quite sober.  "I don't think there's much amiss  with you beyond a touch of vertigo,"  Felix said in a casual way, helping  with his coat, "but, I say, my dear  fellow, if ever you are in any trouble,  If ever you should need any sort of  help���������I don't care whether it is pecuniary or otherwise���������or any advice,  where an older man can trot out his  experience for the benefit of the  younger, you know where to look for  a staunch friend who'll be proud and  gratified to do his; level best for you."  "Thank you," he said huskily, "I  know you would," he groped about a  moment, found and wrung his hand.  "Would you like me to walk back  with you?" Felix asked.  "No, thanks; I would rather be  alone," he said, withdrawing his hand  a trifle forcibly from the Squire's detaining clasp and turning on his  heel, "Good-night, and thank you."

The mischief take the crazy  jade!"  CHAPTER XII.  The Paragraph in the Papers  It was eight o'clock, the breakfast  hour at the Manor House.  Felix sat in his accustomed place at  the foot of the table, the Morning Post  propped against the silver dish covejr  In front of him.  Four hours hack they  were dancing at The,   Larches,   and  now  the  October sunlight streamed!  Into the parlor, putting the Squire's  cheerful, fire to the blush.   Agnes was  not yet at her post behind the cosy,  so Felix had poured out a cup of cof-'  fee, helped himself to  a  couple ot)  rashers of bacon and one or two finej  mushrooms.    Two letters lay beside!  hns plate, which he turned over with  some   curiosity,   opened,   and   read!  while he ate.  ; -The first was rather a bumble, but  withal a manly, honest, straightforward epistle from Dr. Hunter, asking  permission to pay bis  addresses   to  Agnes.    The second was  an  anonymous   one,   ill-spelt   and   curiously  worded.   It informed him that young  Mr. Farley, up at the Hall, was courting a certain gent's sister, that tbey  did their billing and cooing under the  eaves ot a disused mouldy summer-!  house, reeking with dry and damp rot,'  and moreover, it was possible, aighiy.  probable,  the little love-birds would1  chirrup there on the next evening but  one.  ' "A droii. idea that!" he muttered, as  the door opened to admit Agnes.  He smiled to himself, and threw a  fine glance of trustful affection towards her as she seated herself at the  breakfast table,  "You're a sensible girl, Aggie, and  generally able to bring things into  their proper focus. Read that, and tell  me your opinion of it,'' he said, tossing Dr. Hunter's letter into her lap.  The other, whose skulking author  was hitting in the dark, and. for the  nonce hitting harmlessly, he smoothed  out, put carefully /and deliberately  into its flimsy envelope, slipped it into  hiB breast pocket, and went, on with  his breakfast, resuming hiB perusal of  the leading article from where be left  off at the last break.  - "Hum!" he remarked, sotto voce,  for no one's special benefit, "these  daily records of casualties and series  of mishaps, the lack ot foresight and  inability on our side, present the uncomfortable suggestion that the British army is degenerating into merely  a home profession fc- our wealthier  classes."  He took a piece of toast from tbe  rack, buttered it,, turned; the paper,  and leaned it back again in its former  position upon the cover. He bent forward, crunching the crisp, dry crust,  running a keen, quick eye over the  fresh page, until a paragraph containing several familiar names caught bia  attention and arrested further progress .  A sharp, short exclamation and a  low peculiar whistle, indicative of  dismay or astonishment, caused Agnes  to lift a flushed face and eyelashes  fringed with suspicious moisture.  "Why, Felix," she said, surprised,  "how funnny you look! - I mean you  look flabby, liverish, out of sorts."  "Caught Farley's complaint, no  doubt." he said, with an uneasy laugh.  "He was a bit bowled over last night,  or rather this morninng By the way,  Agnes, I don't think I've heard you  express an opinion one way or the  other about that young man. How do  you like bim? What do you think of  him?"  "I like him very much," she said,  heartily and naturally. "I took to him  the first time I saw him."  ��������� "You thought him a well-behaved,  clever fellow, cultivated'manners, and  all that sort of thing; no humbug,  eh?"  "Yes, I did, and I tbinn so now," she  said, smiling.  "Did it'ever strike you there waa  anything between bim and Mra.  Wycherly?"  "Ntever. He has told me more than  once be disliked' her. if there bad  been I'm certain you would have  known ot it."  "I'm not so sure, he Ib very reserved,  a young man evidently who can keep  his own counsel, aa to-day's paper can  certify."  "Is there anything about him In the  paper?" she asked with. interest; "I  expect he's done something horribly,  gloriously clever."  "Exceedingly clever! Listen to  thiB: '. narriage haa been arranged,  and wiii Bhortly take place between  Paul Farley, Esq., of New York, U.S.A.,  at present, in England visiting Sir  Thomas Hargrave, M.P., of Weyberne  Hail, and Rowena Matilda, widow of  Guy Wycherly, Esq, late of The  Larches, Weyberne.*"  She sat bolt upright in astonishment.'    ���������   -  "It's untrue, absolutely untrue," she  said very earnestly, "there's not a  shade of a shadow of truth in it."  "You are very positive, Agnes," he  said, lifting his eyebrows; "as imaginative and resourceful as we know  our charming widowed neighbor to be,  still, I don't think she would dare to  insert that announcement without  some foundation to go upon."  "I; simply know wbat he has told me  himself in the ordinary conversational  way," she answered, instantly seeing  that a temperate middle course was  the only safe and practicable one to  pursue. "Mra. Wycherly may have  inveigled him into something like an  apology for a proposal and taken advantage of it."  He leaned back, looking at her  thoughtfully, tilting his chair to a dangerous degree.  "I expect you've about hit it, Aggie," he said, admiringly, "and I can  tell you the exact time it occurred.  It was fifteen minutes past twelve  when I saw him come careering���������great  Scott! if my surmise is correct, this  notice must have been sent to the  paper before Farley proposed. It  must either have been posted early  yesterday morning, or overnight."  "But how could she be sure he would  ask her?" she demanded, with round  wondering eyes; "how foolish she  might have made herself look."  "Shells a good deal more likely to  make other folk look foolish, mj  dear," be returned quickly. "I won-  4ssT- whv- he reJbaaad to, confide hi, mo'  I felt sure the trouble came from that  quarter, and that he waa In an un*  holy dilemma."    ;  "Did you ask him to confide in you?"  "Not in so many words, but his not  doing so amounted to a refusal after  the way in which I. opened up tbe invitation."  "How did you know there waa anything wrons?" she asked, leaving her  place to fetch bis cup.  "Why,- I saw him* come leaping  downstairs, three steps at a time, with  a face like a hunted stag.

He turned again to the paper with  the air of one who had done with a  matter, at least ao far as he was concerned. But bis face was set and  ususually grave; be looked vexed, disappointed, and hurt. Agnea was  silent, she scarcely knew what to say,  it was all so mysterious and unexpected . She was quite certain that it was  Paul's intention to keep clear of Mrs.  Wycherly, to treat her with all due  respect and politeness, but to give ber  a wide berth, not to go one bair's-  breadth from the cool, calm, civil role  be bad adopted since his terrible mistake to the shrubbery.:.       ... m.. ���������   (To be Continued)  "With the forests of British Columbia opening up as they are, it is difficult to estimate the great probab'o  increase in the amount of timber user,  in Canada," says the Review. "While  the industry is capable of an expansion of five times its present bulk  without impairing the wood capital,  one rather shrinks from the thought oT  what condition forest fires, if they on.".-  got headway might leave. Canada ha-i  ah estimated growth per acre of 15C  board feet and a cut of 125 hoard fec-t,  hut the fire loss is 525 board feet. The  terrible disproportion between th"1  amount grown and the amount -removed every year is something which must  be overcome if Canada is to maint -iln  her place in the fore of the timber  producing-nations.

Finding a, smell  of smoke In: the house about 3 o'clock,  Mr. Fitzlanders descended to the basement, but as soon as he opened the  door there was an explosidn, which'  turned put to be that of a tank of gasoline. The house was soon a mass of  flames and the fire department wa*  unable to save any part of lt or Its  contents. All the occupants escaped  and were cared for ln neighbors'  homes.  "What does this nation need?"  shouted  the impassioned orator.  "What does this nation require, if  she steps proudly across the Pacific,  if she strides boldly across the mighty  ocean in her mighty march ot trade  -and freedom? I repeat, what does  she need?"  "Rubber boots," suggested the  grossly materialistic person in the  rear of the house.  9999********************9*  Mr. J. H.

A Chiropractor knows that all  disease ls inco-ordination between the various parts of the  body���������lack of harmony between  the brain and the tissue cells.  This is caused by pressure of  nerves. The Chiropractor by a  skilful movement of his hands on  the spine of the sick person removes the pressure. The nerves  whieh have been dormant by reason of the pressure again become  active, aad Nature by this means  affects a cure.  The Chiropractor never claims  to cure.   All he does is to remove the pressure and thus open  the door for Nature to do her  '     wonderful work.  The Chiropractor never worries himself or the patient by  seeking to give a name to the  trouble.   The trouble is slmpiy  - an effect for which there must  be a cause. "Every effect has a  cause." 80 the Chiropractor  finds the cause, removes it, and  then Id the ordinary course of  things the effect should cease.  There is a magazine published  - in Toronto, named "The Canadian Chiropractor." If you  would like a copy, ask for one  at the addres below.

RAILWAY BUSINES8 FOR JAN.  . UARY7-     'A-yAA''^  The mild weather that prevailed  throughout the United States during  January and the good condition of  business in general caused the returns  of the railways to show large increases over January of 1912, a month  that was characterised by severe  weather impeding railway operation.  Operating income for each mile of  line averaged $7.66 for each day in  January. 1913. This average for Jan  uary. 1912, was $5.09.  The corresponding average per mile  per day for the last fiscal year was  $9.19, for the previous fiscal year  $9.52, for the seven months of the  current fiscal year $11.46. Com'  parison with these longer periods averages the effect of fluctuations of the weather and shows that  last January as usual was relatively a  poor month for railway traffic.  The fact that this operating Income  per mile of line per day averaged  $12.13 in November, $10.16 in Decern  ber, and $7.66 in January shows that  as usual this was a month during  which traffic diminished.  Operating income is the amount,  after the payment of operating er  penses and taxes, available to the  railways for rentals, interest on bonds,  appropriations for betterments, Im  provement8, and new construction,  and for dividends. In the aggregate it  averaged per mile of line for the  month $375 for the railways of the  East; $224 for the railways of the  South, and $177 for the railways of the  West.  These figures are from the summary  of earnings and expenses of steam railways operating about ninety per cent  of .the mileage of the country, made  by the Bureau of Railway Economics  from the reports of these railways to  the Interstate Commerce Commission.

Tree Planting By Farmers  (Continued from Page I)  w protection, but partly, also, for the  production of fence posts. East of the  treeless region forest planting is also  on the increase. This is due, among  other reasons, to the decrease in the  supply of native timber, the fact that  considerable areas are more suitable  for timber, than for agricultural crops,  and the expectation of quick and large  returns froni such trees as hardy catal-  pa and black locust. For these saire  reasons planting in these regions may  be expected to increase in the future. *n  a number of States planting Is also  stimulated by competent State forest officers, and, in addition, in Ohio,  Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York,  Maryland and Vermont, through dis.  {ribution by the State of forest tree  seedlings. West of the treeless region  planting tor future protection in irrigated districts and tor timber produc.  tion In those parts of California adapted to the growing of eucalyptus will  undoubtedly Increase.  It ls believed that in future many  fanners will be forced to raise their  own timber of general future use, .or  else pay an almost prohibitive price  for it. In some sections of the coun.  try the price of posts has doubled in  the last 10 to 15 years and may be expected to double again in the next 10.  16 years. This article discusses briefly,  for the region east of Nebraska, north  of Tennessee and North Carolina, the  best trees to plant, the methods to be  followed in planting them, and the  products they yield. Por convenience  the larger region is subdivided into  three smaller ones; the treeless region, which Includes the States of  Iowa, and Illinois; the hardwood re.  gion, embracing Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Southern Michigan;  and  the northeast region, embracing Penn.  sylvania. New York and the Northeastern States.  The chief suggestions may be practically summed up ln the accompanying table.  In addition to the products of the  manure stand, as mentioned in the  table, It must be . remembered that  thinnings will yield other material  such as cordwood and posts. No fig.  ures as to the monejtary returns are  given. It Is, however, stated, that  some lands, even lf planted to "the  slower growing species, will show returns equal to lf not greater than  those that can be secured from the  growing of agricultural crops. Moreover, that the values from timber  crops, and the returns from plantations  in tbe future may be expected to be  greater than those from plantations in  the past.  ;-���������/    :M   X  "The School of Certainties  i)  tlp-to-cjate courses.  t ���������:.'..... ..     .  ������������������"���������"'    r ���������"��������� " 7 "   " '" " 7  Bright, well ventila-  tecj sanitary premises.
