 $������.'J.-S  '  ::.������������������ ���������  m& MlUJONB^iatt WILL*-HI������ BELIEF.  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.)  New York, April 19.���������"I commit my soul into  the hands of my Saviour In full confidence that  having redeemed it and washed it in His most  precious blood He will present it faultless before  the Throne of my Heavenly Father; and I entreat  children to maintain and defend, at all hazard,  afed at any coat of personal sacrifice, the blessed  doctrine of the complete/"atonement for sin  through the blood of Je*us Christ, once offered,  and through tbat alone. "f ';, \]  The "King of Finance'* has gone into another  aphere of activity, and on his departure he left  much behind him of value to mankind. ���������"'  So much has already beea'taid of the man thai  it is not necessary to add afcjnthing at this time.  On the whole"he was strong, wise, honest "and  philanthropic man. However,, he made use Of the  present day system of economics to the ftill and  succeeded as business men call success^  He lefy behind him many millions, and the control of more millions than he ostned. -I wonder  if he, in life, fully understood that lie was not  t only the custodian of-his own money arid that of  others who entrusted theirs to his financial skill,���������  but that all he had ef his own and in trust for  ethers belonged to blm to trust for Sim who owns  ths gold, aad the silver of tl* earth and aU tbat  tJHfihi is. I believe, from the nature of his will,  that he had some clear notion that he was but an  agent for his Heavenly. Father, and used his time  and ability with that conviction beforeTiis mind.  His will was short, jetaty; and concise like his  prevaling charae^eriftties. He saw, decided, acted  and-the matter wps Settled. This was his common  method and state, af mind: So, in his will, He  did. in terse terms, just wbat he designed to do.  He gave little to charity, religion, education, and  philanthropic institutions, button sUve and active he used his money'fr^^li^difections.  Hence bis will was not specially required for aa  extension in these matters.  His belief can e������������|lf be/perceived by/the quotation at the beginning of these comments. #e-  was a deeply religions man, 9 firm believer in the  historic Christ as the Slbne Saviour of man without any intervening priest or other cleric. For  him Christ was all and sufficient.  It is in conneetion^with-his belief that I write  these'notes, for I am desirous ef bringing to th������*\  notice of a hostof our limd talkers who pretend-  that they are too #weil educated, too well experienced, too up-to-<tate to look upon Jesus the  Christ of the Living God as more than a man..  But one of the strongest and clearest brained'  men of this advanced civilization, J. pierpont Morgan, who made a mighty mark in his day in every  circle of busness and finance, and in the political  world (for economics reach to the entire human,  race),' has said in the clearest terms that the  atonement of Christ was sufficient, and*the atonement for mankind.  .* *< '���������k  This" ought to be a lesson to the infidels-'of  much noise and little intellectal capacity. It  ought to set the pulpit "higher critics" athiuk-  iag on higher and clearer lines. It ought to show  the Roman clergy that one of the mightiest men  of this century sets ��������� forth that here is no room  for any interference of clerical gentlemen, who  ftretend that they and* they alone can give abso-  ution for sin and save mtm:from eternal loss.  ������J. P. Morgan says h j wants none but Christ,  an(| his speech will be published in the press of  *$������ entire world. ^j|s will shortly will appear  in papers, magazines, and by other means, so that  the reading human'family can see how a mighty  man of gjpnt intellect views Christ and salvation.  His will tells the whole world that there is only  ONE PltlEST WHO CAN GIVE SALVATION  TO A HUMAN'BEING, AND THAT ALL OTHER PRETENSIONS AND PRETENDERS ARE  FALSE, USELESS AND UNWORTHY CONSIDERATION. '       *  S-'y ���������',.:......   3610 Bella Vista St., April 21st, 1913.  Editor Western Call:  I was much interested in the Scriptural riddle  which appeared in last week's issue of The Call  and which I remember first seeing in the Bible  Class and Youths' Magazine, a monthly periodical  published by the British Sunday School Union  nearly fifty years ago; The answer appeared a  few months later. It is: "An image of wood,"  and the reader is referred to, the 1st book of Samuel 19th Chapter 12th to 17th Verses.

He had secured a very good and reasonable price from the Indians and the department at Ottawa had expressed its willingness to con^pt, but  in view of a i-equest froin the provincial government for a Commission to deal with  the Indian lands thcs6!ttawa authorities decided as an act of courtesy to ^he Provincial -Government to await the sittings of the Commission before taking action. It  was at this point Mr. Bowser decided to take action, believing the time opportune  to get rid of the Indians with the result that he paid off'the Indians who have since  vacated the Beserve. It is understood he had no special objection in; view other  than the sale of the Reserve^to private buyers, but on learning of Mr. Stevens' pro-  posals be^ms sinre stated heVill be glad to discuss the matter; One thing is certain; Vancouver must have that 'Reserve:for. public purposes only- No ^ffprt will be  spared to accomplish this. -y  y ( >  It is most unfortunate that anything should arise to hinder or delay the exten-  sive improvements that Mr. Stevens has planned for Vancouver, This;city cannot  afford to let;'tii!e^Kitsilano^^ Beserve be diverted to private purposes or to pass into  i^e hands of any corporation however closely allied to the city.   Vancouver's rep-  ', resentative in Ottawa has given this dockage scheme much of his time and thought  and without parade or demonstration has reached a definite understanding with the  Government Tfor large expenditures upon transportation facilities. To now stop  is utterly but of the question. H. H. Stevens is not built of timber that fails in  emergency. He will measure up to the occasion and will be heartily sustained in  his commendablevefforts by?all public spirited VancouvCrites. Wejoaye no doubts  as to Mr. Bowser's ability and readiness to adjust this matter at the earliest oppor-  ��������� tunity. Vancouver expects this and the Attorney-General can meet their expectations without friction or loss of good will.  There may be significance in the fact that Mr. W. E. Ditchburn of Victoria,  inspector of Indian agencies for the Province, paid an official visit to the Kitsilano  Indian Reserve. It is understood he is acting under the instructions of Dr. Roche,  Minister of |he Interior at Ottawa.

Britain, God's Aneient  Israel, mu^t go to Asiatic Turkey, subjugate and  possess the Ia,nd. It was given by an oath, by  "an everlasting covenant to Abraham and hw  seed forever."

A Parisian Novelty .���������In Europe it is 4wed this year as  a little Easter present, or rather a mark of courtesie to  friend^and relatives. Its value as a token lies more in the  novel raea than in the price of the article. It is arranged  so that it can be sent, just like a post card, for a cent or two,  to any place in Canada or the Unied States. The endearing  idea about it is the embedded LUMINOUS CROSS, which  will shine all night long (or in any dark room).in a GLORIOUS, MYSTIC BLUE LIGHT, after you had it exposed to  daylight for a.few minutes. The price is so low that anyone  is enabled to be convinced of its real nautre. It is indeed  an article which is held in high esteem by any Christian  family or person.

C In the Division of Animal Husbandry an experiment completed during February Indicates that feed flour  may be given to swine as a substitute  Tfbr oats and bailey,' with good results. During the month there have  ihee Height litters of pigs among the  three breeds <kept at the Farm and in  each-case the young have all come  strong,. again demonstrating the advantage of the open air meth of wintering brood sows.  In connection with the dairy cattle  a test is in progress as- to the value  of molasses to supplement the' meal  ration. A trial is also being given to  several different types of milk pail  to determine their relative merits  from the standpoint of the purity ot  the rallk.ln another experiment, now  being conducted, a comparison is be*  ' Ing made of milking by hand and by  machine, | both as regards economy  and purity of the milk.  J. A.

The snow, which has  been leaving quite slowly, Is still very  much in evidence. However, it haa  been a fairly satisfactory month for  getting work done. All classes of live  stock on tha Experimental Farm are  in excellent condition, and there is a  generous crop of lambs and spring  pigs.

How many of the 188 fires of which  the causes are still unknown were the  result of an untehded camp flre is  open to surmiset'but as In most of the  other'riska such as railway and road  construction, and logging operations  the existence of, flre ls at once known,  the camper may be Justly held to account for aiVery large proportion .of  the season's conflagrations.  Stringent regulations have been  passed by the Board ot Railway Commissioners of Canada to cover the  risk of. mew railroads under construction, ln the Province,' the patrol has  been doubled on the rights of way,  and every possible precaution urged  upon logging operations. The Forest  Branch is endeavoring to' co-operate  in. every way with those who. have  work to perform which . is attended  with danger to the forest. But the  greatest danger of allr-that of the  man who' is careless with his camp  flre, still remains open, and it can be  removed only by increased watchfulness o nthe part of every Individual  who uses the woods for pleasure or  profit.  Thts year the officers of the Forest  Branch expect a harder season than  ever before. The very conditions ot  dampness, .and consequent". heavy  rowth of grass and weeds which made  the year 1912 one of the best in the  standpoint of flre' 'protection, will  combine to make a great flre hazard  this spring.  The rangers now appointed \by thi  Branch are being given particular instructions^ with regard to warning  campers and ^securing their co-operation in. keeping .down -the danger to  the forest. .       ;> .7:,v. '..  The six simple rules which the  rangers will impress upon all those  they meet in the woods, are:  ���������li ' Be sure your match is out \ before you .throw it away.  N '' :- :'���������. - '       . " ' 'X '.  2: Knock out your pipe ashes or  throw your cigar or cigarette stump  where there is nothing to catch flre;  3. Don't build a camp fire any  larger than is absolutely necessary.  Never leave it,, even for? a short time,  without putting.it out with water-or  ���������earth.  4. Don't build a camp fire against a  tree or log. Build a small one where  you can scrape 'away the needles,  leaves or grass from all sides of Mt.  5. Don't build bonfires. The wind  may come up at any time and start  a flre which you cannot control.  6y If you discover a fire; put it out  if 'possible; If you can't, det word of  ���������It to the nearest forest ranger or  flre warden as quickly as you possibly can.  MYSTERIOUS PREMATURE EXPLOSION OF 21,000 LBS. DYNAMITE  . A premature explosion of .dynamite  occurred last Saturday afternoon between the Pedro Miguel Locks and  the Mirafores Locks of the Panama  Canal. Three men were killed and 25  wounded.  JJynamite to the amount of about  21,000 vpounds, filling 9$ holes, "let  go" from some unknown, cause. The  electric wires were not attached, and  the only possible explanation seems to  be that a sulphur formation at tbis  point generated heat. The explosion  occurred just at the moment that notification had been sent to the foreman  that everything was ready for the  blast -  The material broken up consisted of  hard clay. Had it been rock the. rock  gang would have been annihilated. The  casualties were confined to laborers  from the West Indies and nearby places. ' :.",  PRIMROSE DAY.  In every part of the British Empire  where they could be -obtained primroses were worn Saturday by enthusiastic admirers of Benjamin Disraeli,  Lord Beaconsfleld, and worn, too, by a  good many just because "Primrose  Day" has become an institution. The  most curious feature about this celebration is that "Dizzy" never seems  to have shown any particular predilection for this simple wild flower, and  indeed, its simplicity was not in accord  with his rather florid tastes. Few-  people were seen wearing primroses  in Vancouver yesterday, but the reason probably was tbat there are few  promroses here to wear.  HE    HAD   THE    MONEY.

The  anger, the resentment, the Indignation, had died bard, but it was quite  but, gone now, and he waa sorry, more  sorry than Paul would believe or perhaps ever know. Agnes married and  at Eaat Weyberne, Farley gone from  the neighborhood, the old loneliness,  tbe solitary evenings back!

the brain and the tissue cells.

the spine of the sick person re*
.- moves the pressure. The nerves .
< which bave been dormant by rea-
-' son of the pressure again become
active, and Nature by this means
effects a cure.,
���The Chiropractor never claims A
A  to cure.   All, be does is to remove tbe pressure and -thus open 7 ���
������. the. door for Nature to do her
wonderful work-;.7.77
The Chiropractor- never . wor* : >

seeking to give a name* to the
7  trouble.- The trouble: Is simply
,7. an effect for which there must
7, be a cause.   "Every effect haa a

Sir Thomas tbe wisdom of my dismissal. I know I am of use to him, and

Between them and without so much
difficulty as he anticipated, considering hia stiffness. Paul mounted and
aet off down tbe avenue in a fairly

"Where are you going, Mr. Parley?"
T*om Hargrave asked, watching Paul
button himself into his thickest and
warmest overcoat.
"To EaBt Weyberne, ton a little personal business."
"Are you going to walk??.
"I am going to ride Shank's pony.
"Because it's a long way and you
haven't seemed well all day. If you
can ride, sir, you may take my   hi*
"Will you have anything to take,
sir?" Paul heard her ask.
"Tes," be said briskly, "give me a
whiskey and soda." i
"If you will go into the sitting-room, j
I'll bring it in to you," she remarked,
in an easy, natural tone, and Paul
wltb bis heart almost in bis throat,
rose hastily from the couch and stood
palpitating on the hearth-rug.
"No, ..ianks, Mrs. Radler," he said,
contentedly, "I'll drink it here."
Paul's heart stood still. For an infinitesimal. space his galloping pulse
seemed to suspend Itself and then
rush on again ln hot, tremulous, haste.
"There's a gentleman In the sitting-
room. Sir, waiting to see you," she
said carelessly, banding him the
glass; "perhaps you will like to take
this with you?"
"Waiting to see me?" he asked, surprised.   "Who is it, Mrs. Radler?"
But Mrs. Radler had opened a (green
baize dqpr and disappeared down a
long atone passage leading to the kitchen; she had something to do at the
back; there waa something that re*
quired immediate attention, and the
squire's question missed fire. On
Paul's part there was a moment's
breathless pause before Fleming's
heavy tread came grating along the
Banded flags, and he pushed open the
sitting-room door.
"Last night about this time he wat
thrashing me," Paul was telling himself, "and now in a few seconds we
may be friends again, or���worse���
foes. Oh, God, teach me, tell me, what
to say and do!"

Ten  bridges have been constructed,   and  Hew'the   Federal   Forest   Reserves \.W ������������������������'<>f telephone have been put  I  M  l! i?  US  I-  ft  ;S||  li  '���������\i.---  Are Being Developed.  The^Ckuninion forest service has  progressed farther than any other  service In Canada In the laying out  Of forest reserves and providing for  their proper administration. Sixteen  million acres have been definitely Bet  apart by act of parliament to be administered aa forest reserves. Additional ' areas are being examined  each .year, and some six million acres  additional are now under temporary  reservation and will shortly be added  to the reserves set apart by statute.  Tbe more setting apart of reserves,  though aa important step, is only a  preliminary one. v Although, unfortunately. In some cases it has'not  been realized tbat anything more is  necessary, this mistake has nqt been  n>ade In the federal administration.  Tbe reserves bave been organized  by appointing an Inspector In charge  for each ot tbe western provinces.  The inspectors selected are men who  bave had a thorough technical train-  Ins; hi forestry and who have shown  good administrative ability. In each  of the Inspection districts the reserve  areas are laid out In unlta or forests,  each under charger of a technically  trained man or a man experienced ln  timber adatAnlstratlon. Twelve such  dlvlalona have already been, established, and others are being organised and manned with forest rangers  as the development of the. reservee  dad tbe flre danger may render neces*  patrol outside of forest reserves on  asry^ TfeeeerdtvistoiM do not include  tbe large area of. forest not Included  therein. ' fa auch areas there are* ln  addition twelve patrol divisions, each  uader charge of a chief flre ranger.  On each of the forests( houses have  been erected for the forest rangers,  ee that they may be close to their  work and aire it careful supervision.  At different points'throughout the'  fore**,, huts have been erected as  fceadquarteni Im eummer patrols and  In some of the more Inaccessible districts 43* miles of trails and roads  *    *~y     '" *   , '.��������� '���������:- . - ~. ���������  in operation. A much enlarged programme of such, Improvement work  .bias been laid out for tbe coming  year.  A conference of tbe inspectors was  recently held at Ottawa to plan the  work' for the coming season and the  construction work will be pushed as'  rapidly as possible so as to have the  reserves, made Immune from flre, as  they are in Europe, in tbe shortest  possible time.  The damage done to commercial'  stands of timber in North America is  from $25,000,000 to $100,000,000 annually, according to experts who have  made a study ot the question. From  1880 to the present time tbe annual  loss is estimated to be $50,000,000.  These figures do not include, estimates of the losses sustained' In the  destruction of young growth and tor-  eat litter, ln which lies the hope of  future timber crops. The burning ot  the forest litter has tbe effect of  making stream flo wirregular, eroding river banks and destroying the  fertility, of iland over which useless  earth Is deposited by swollen rivers.  In some years there are forest fires  which assume the size of national disasters. Such was the Peshtlgo fire  which swept over an area of 1,280,000  acres in Wisconsin in 1871, utterly  ruining: the country and bringing  death to 1500 people. Other fires  which Stand out in the history of the  past century as examples of the nda-  ing power of the forest's great enemy  are: Miramichi fire, Maine aid7New  Bhingwick, 1825, 3.000,000 acres bprn-  ed and 16������ lives lost.      ^.x'A-y^^y  Pontine fire, Quebec, 1833, l.MfcOOO  acres burned. ���������>.\'\:'y:  A fire in Michigan in 1871, 2.000,000  acres burned.,  Michigan flre; Michigan. , 1881,; 1,*  000,000  acres  burned: and 138  lives  i*oety.A.,y.'-y-yyyyAy:yyAAA;.

Newspapers, and magailnes .discuss  Questions; of fire protection ail the  year through; rather than in the. periods of danger exclusively. Governments are adopting advanced legislation, the number of fire rangers ta  constantly increasing, and over sixty  forest protective associations on tbe  continent are actively engaged In efforts to reduce tbe flre loss.  With half the timber wealth of  Canada within her borders and an  annual revenue from the forest  which can attain a total of at least  $100,000,000, British Columbia's interest in the protection of forests from  fire is almost beyond estimate. The  forest branch Is taking active mean*  der efficient protection, to the end  ures to place tbe whole province un*  that no auch losses aa have occurred  in the past in other parts of the  country may take place here.     -  letterheads  Billheads  Envefapes -  Mkers  UngStatiwbry  Visiting Cards ,'->  Bills ot Fare     ���������  MlhTicms        7  Pcmce Invitations  Admission Twketv  Qtf promises are kept  Oqfr WdrV  Our prices are fair.

This is Mr. Gaebel-  eln's first visit to Vancouver, and  we are sure this will be a treat  that will be much appreciated  by the people of the city. At a  \ similar conference in Winnipeg,  recently, seventeen hundred men  gathered to bear an address by  tbis God-honored speaker. He  will be able to be with us for  this abort conference only, as  the calls from s<Tmany places,  aad his extensive work as Editor  and author, necessitates this  short stay here.  The meetings will be interde  nominational. He will deal with  Historic, Prophetic and Dispen-  sational Truth, and other Kin*  dred doctrines.  It 4s sincerely hoped that large  numbers will avail themselves  of tbls splendid opportunity.  To those who do not know\  and bave not heard of Mr. Gae-  belein, it might be of interest to  them to know 'that he is an associate worker with such men as  the Rev. C. J.
