CURRENT  ;i  H  Methodism Politically a Negligible Quantity  The Rev. Doctor Chown and the officials of  Methodism are quite properly and justly worked  up over the "Norway House" Indians. The matter stands somewhat thus:���������For over one hundred  years the Methodist have taken charge of and  oared for the Indians, at Norway House. They  have Christianized, civilized and educated them  until now they are among the foremost Indians  of the Dominion of Canada.  Just lately, the Roman Church has made a move  and has brought influence to bear upon the Dominion (Government by which a.large sum of  money has been set aside for that Church, so that  this church may, at the extra expense of the people of Canada, establish a cause and erect buildings by which the Indians will be educationally,  religiously and nationally divided into two factions. ���������/.���������������������������������������������  Even though the money runs into the large  sum of thirty sthousand dollars, if I mistake not,  there are only three Indians of school age under  the tutelage of the Roman Church. Concentrated  effort of that. Church, ia aa unreasonable undertaking, is of more power at Ottawa than the entire  influence of the Methodists of Canada.  Why: is this? Surely the Methodists are air  intelligent, perceiving and public-spirited people.  JFhey are up to the times, and as successful as any  other people. Very true, bttt still they are a  NEGLIGIBLE QU&NTITY atOttawa. and elsewhere in Canada, where there are parliamentary  centres and groupings. They have no voice, and  never had in a straight contest with Rome, or  other body. They aro "hatf ;s^k*!f.������ ^When a  contest comes in the pomicsli?i|p(pi^ split, so  as to nullify one another's vote. Hence tbey are  a zero, a cipher,-a nothing, a political cofnpauy  Of iiaclcilflDCBsi  Our good Doctor Chown has consulted Ottawa  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., BSc.)  in Canada.   Here is a safe ground for effectively  opposing all unjust religious legislation.  While at this topic let me say one thing:   It is  clear to an observer that Rome goes into any com  mumty to carry on its work, even where the peo  pie are well provided for religiously, as witness  the Norway House affair.   Le������ the Various religious bodies of Canada enter upon a most strenuous campaign among the Roman Catholics, and  especially amongst our fellow citizens of Quebec.  Give them the light of the Gospel and let (them  have a taste of personal freedom.  Let them come  straight to the feet of Jesus Christ the only true  Priest oh earth or in heaven.   When they see the ,  light and taste personal and religious freedom,  the rule of the Jesuit priest will depart forever.  may fall when overloaded wilh Guinea' hrews,  The Method ifo fa a^ ourselves unduly.  A more  a positive objection to the course adopted h^t-the  Borden Government in relation to the Indian! at  Norway House. .     m  But they are only kicking at the wind. /They  hit nothing and nobody. Our astute Roman Catholics know that the Methodism of Canada does  not count in the political sphere, and therefore  go forward fearlessly. Who can blame tbem?  They think tbey have the right of way, and especially as they are the political ruling power at  Ottawa to a large extent. ���������       ������������������ ���������    ���������*  Now I would.like to say to the Rev. Doctor  Chown and the Methodist officials tbat which they  know full well. It-is this: tbey have never hal  *an organization by which tbey could effectively  oppose the political machinations of Rome. They  have no organization today, and are therefore  helpless. Hence the Roman Church, as well as  Borden and his ministers, know that whe������ an  election comes around tbe Methodists will split  about even and therefore be a political nonentity.  This is true largely of the Baptists, of the Presbyterians, of tbe Anglicans and of the other Protestant denominations. Religiously the Roman  Catholic church alone is organized on political  lines, and is a tremendous power in the land.    ^  If Doctor Chown, the Methodist officials, the  leading men of the Methodist Church as well as of  all the other Protestant churches could see clearly  one important fact, and take advantage of that  fact, tbey would in a short while count politically  to an extent that would throw down the present  dominance of the Roman Church into utter helplessness. Then all true and public matters could  be squarely legislated upon, and wisely earned  through the executive processes.  Here is that important fact: Iu addition to  the Roman Church there is one other organization  in Canada that counts politically, and exists for  the purpose of preventing the unjust and determined efforts of that church in securing advant-  sgreesfhat should belong to all the people, and not  to any body of religionists. ...  This organization is the Orange Association,  which stands for "equal rights to all." One flag,  one king, and eventually one language in English-  speaking Canada!  Let the Protestants of Canada do one of two  things: Let them form an organization to squarely  meet the schemes of a political sort managed by  the Jesuitic party within the Roman Catholic  Church; or let these Protestants who in their  hearts would be glad to prevent the unjust encroachments of the Jesuits, join the Orange Association in large numbers, and strengthen the  hands of tbis body of patriots, of loyal supporters  of the Throne, King, Flag, National Education,  the freedom of the Individual, of the Home,1 of  the Community, and of the Empire.  Here, then, is an invitation to the Rev. Doctor  Chown and the leaders of all the Protestant bodies  THE B. 0. WESTERN CATHOLIC  I see by a number of that comic paper that the  Rev. Austin Bonner is the editor, and I conclude  'that he is therefore editorially responsible for the  contents of that Vancouver weekly. Lo, an issue  just placed in my hands, I find that the "Reverend" calls mightily upon the Honorable Attorney-General Bowser for help, against the Orangemen, presumably of Ulster and Vancouver. He  says:"We would like to ask what does Attorney-  General Bowser propose to do about such a  treasonable document?" Yes; he "would like to  ask." Then why not ask, and be quick about itt  I can tell him the answer he should get: "Poor  silly man, keep to your prayers, and beads,1 and  quit, drinking what is bad for your religions,  moral, intellectual and clerical health."  In the same "Western Catholic" this same  Reverend, Holy Man of the Roman Church speaks  of Orangemen as if they are drunkards. Hear  him: "As the only ditch the LoyalUlster Orangeman is ever likely to die in is that into which be  -_������**___*.��������� ���������':������---- ._?. _.**___  ;��������� .������������������������������������.���������..��������� ....��������� ���������./-..  :���������,:   .-^v,.

Very pretty language from a drunken reverend! A bright and  shining religious light to tbe followers of his  church, and a worthy follower of the Man ol  Nazareth.  The Holy Reverend "Father" should read a  little true history concerning the bravery of the  Irish Orangemen, and he will not call tbem "cowardly poltroons" again in a hurry, if bo be honest.  The Irish pre-eminently broke the power of bis  pagan, savage priestcraft; and their control of  Ireland. King William and the Irish-rtrue Irish,  not Canaanites of the Jebusite order���������saved Ireland from foreign, anti-British control, and tied  up tbe papist priests neck and crop in utter helplessness.  Here is a quotation from the "Treasonable  Document" concerning which Mr. Bonner wishes  the Hon. Mr. Bowser to take drastic action:���������  "We (the Orangemen) are determined not only  to remain members of the British Empire, but alio  to defend it. if necessary, with onr lives, as was  done by our forefathers at Derry, Enniskillen and  other centres in our beloved country, Dear Old  Ireland."  Now, dear, holy, father, do you think the Attorney-General is likely to come to your assistance  on the strength of this sensible Orange statement,  and help you to curse the men who are among the  noblest patriots of all time? Do you? Were you  drunk, or sober, when you appealed to the Attorney-General?  Tou know that the basic trouble of the Irish  of today, as always, is the insolent, unreasonable  interference of the priests, directed towards securing control of everything worth having within  the bounds of the Emerald Isle. Tour own people  are growing tired of your methods, and are looking to the time when they shall have intellectual,  spiritual, individual and domestic freedom from  priestly wiles chicanery and slimy meddling. If  the Roman Catholic laity were left alone, and  could freely throw in their lot as citizens of the  empire, having free use of the public schools, and  be a true part of the community, then there would  be peace and prosperity of a sort never possible  otherwise. *  Were you gentlemanly, Mr. Bonner, in your  treatment of public matters, no man would honor  you more readily than the Orangemen whom you  so despise and villify. Try and act the manly,  Christian part. If not, your Vancouver Overlord  will soon place you outside the control of the  "Western Catholic,' as should have been done  long ago. Keep sober and be just, or justice will  overtake you ere long. Do not speak falsely of  others, lest the truth be told of you, whieh would  be worse than your misrepresentation of good  men.  August attending the International Geological  Congress. The only other minister who ever at-  tempted the long overland trip to Dawson City  was Hon. Frank Oliver. As a Westener it was  only a little jaunt to Oliver, but for a tenderfoot  like Coderre it will be a big undertaking. There  are a number of mining problems which are worrying the Yukon which will be given personal  attention by Mr, Coderre while in the Far North.  i Hon. W. T. White, minister of finance, is also  planning a western trip tbis year. Mr. White  knows the West pretty thoroughly now, he is  no stranger to it. Before he accepted a portfolio  in the Borden government it was his custom to  make an annual trip to the West. He is only continuing his old habits. Mr. White will not go  until the fall, when harvest is in progress so that  he can get a more intimate acquaintance With and  better idea, of financial and business conditions  and can study better the problems which are facing the farmer of the West. Mr. White is particularly interested in the grain transportation problem. He was very strongly in favor of the plan  of interior storage elevators and gave the western  ministers strong support in their advocacy of the  scheme. As the holder of tbe purse his support  meant a good deal. Mr. White will go through  to Vancouver and will spend some time in British  Columbia. Hon. J. D. Hazen, minister of marine  and fisheries, is planning an early visit to the  West. He has a number of fishery problems to  take up with the British Columbia authorities and  will spend some time on the coast. He has particularly interested himself since coming into office in the protection of the fisheries of British  Columbia from poaching and in the encouragement of white fishermen. His efforts have already  been very effective. Hon. L. P. Pelletier, postmaster general, is also planning a western trip,  though just when is indefinite. Western postal  problems are the minister's biggest worry and he  wants to get personally acquainted with Western  conditions. He is at present working on the parcels post scheme���������which may delay him in his proposed trip. Hon Robert. Rogers'is of course expecting to visit the Coast this summer to inspect  the big harbor development works which are  being planned at Vancouver and Victoria. The  minister anticipates that with the opening of the  Panama Canal there will be a tremendous development of trade and is anxious that the Coast  cities should be in a position to handle the increased commerce. Both Vancouver and Victoria  will be made real national ports. The contract  for the Vancouver work will be let very shortly,  while plans at Victoria are under way.  Tenders are being called at present for important changes to Rideau Hall, the official residence  of the Governor-General in Canada.

The corridors snd lobbies whieh  fofc-y the past seven months have buzzed with  activity, aro deserted, and Rooms 16 and 89,  the Conservative and Liberal headquarters, are  under lock and key. The sanctity of the Commons chamber is only disturbed by an oeea-  Bidnal country visitor pr American and Engj  towrist. Most of the seats are already eovi  with dust and cobwebs. The only seals  ai-a kept clear of dust are the; Premier's and  Sir Wilfrid's: Every visitor insists on trying  thi. chairs of'% the two leaders. The much  carved seat of the Speaker is always tested by  tourists.

The News quotes the News-Advertiser as follows:  "Mr. Stevens returns from Ottawa with the  record of the best session's work that has ever  been accomplished by a representative of Vancouver. A member less alert, less persistent, less adsi-  quately fortified with knowledge of local requirements could not have done so well under the best  conditions at Ottawa. Mr. Stevens is not a mere  local representative. He takes his shsre in sll the  discussions of national and Imperial policy. He  has strong convictions on the larger public questions. But st this particular time, snd in view of  the previous neglect of this city snd province, he  had to give the closest attention to the requirements of this city and port."  The News then adds:  "Such praise is well merited. Mr. Stevens has  addressed more than one Toronto meeting and  he is known in this part of the Dominion ss sn  able speaker and a forceful personality. In and  out of the House he has been particularly active  on behalf of the workingman, and may fairly be  described as the Conservative-Labor representative for Vancouver. As such he is a consistent  upholder of the national policy and of Imperial  interests. He recognizes that moderate protection  and British liberty are the best guarantees of the  average Canadian's welfare."  BOYCOTT  A "boycott" is in progress in Vancouver. As  to the right of such procedure we may say nothing  now, but of the effectiveness and the wisdom we  are satisfied that the "boycott" is usually abortive, therefore unwise. The friends of the "boy-  cotters" will in many cases act as suggested, but  a large per centa ge of citizens will throw their  patronage in the way of the "boycotted." Human  nature revolts against extreme measures and real  or seeming unfairness. Persecution has always  been suicidal in its final results.  The sticking of tags on windows, doors and  walls is offensive and arouses antagonism. This  practice should be discontinued.

It wlU be remembered that last Sunday week, he gave a  lucid description of the deplorable  state of Rome. Last Sunday evening  he went into the religious beliefs and  condition of the people of Judea and  Gallilee. He said there were three  special sects, the Pharisees, the Sad-  ducees and the Essenes. The latter  were not of -much account Small in  number, they lived apart, in the  wilderness. The Pharisees were the  most powerful Influence outside  Rome. They believed ln God, but  their belief was inadequate. They  acknowledged Him Creator at the beginning, and Judge.at the end, but in  the meantime He was a far-off. Diety.

X-etti exchanged pul-  plta with the Rev. P. B. Stacey of  Wesley Church. Mr. Stacey took as  his text a clause from the 2nd verse  of tbe 32nd chapter of Isaiah, i.e., "A  man ahall be . . . . as a shadow  of a great rock in a weary land." He  pictured a desert with the ever moving, ever drifting, ever changing sand,  and a large boulder standing out and  above it all, with the sand banked up  on the windward aide, and ln the  shelter of the rock vegetation and  life. He showed Israel at tbe time df  the prophecy being threatened by invasion from Babylon and Assyria, and  how sbe sought to safeguard herself  by forming alliances with Egypt.  Against such alliances the voice of  the prophet thundered, telling them  to foUow out God's commands and to  trust in Him Instead of in horses and  chariots. Mr. Stacey said that not  alone was his text to be construed as  concerning the coming of Christ. Here  was philosophy of all human history.  Great men, that is, good men, did very  -materially contribute to the world's  progress, to the development of a  nation, of a community, of a church.  They were the great rocks affording  shelter. Mr. Stacey finished with an  appeal for men "to put their trust in  God, the Great Rock, and find perfection and salvation." Then would  they become rocks. He quoted the  words, "No man liveth unto himself,"  and said they should become rocks in  the community in which they lived.  "Do we stand up and stand forth as  shelters and protections for those  who needed it? That was the meaning of his text. By our lives and characters, by our comportment as a  Christian and a citizen. Were we  moral rocks? We must plant ourselves like rocks against every drift  of evil and sin, that men and women  and little children could come under  our protection and feel safe."  In the evening, Mr. Lett continued  his address on the conditions of Pal-  this one of the most satisfactory of  pavement*. Vancouver's pavements  are largely of the. same material.  Eighty-two per cent, of the new paving in Minneapolis is woodblock, and  Saskatoon and other Western towns  are giving the wodblock paving the  preference.  Best results are obtained from rect-  angularshaped blocks cut from South  ern or Norway pine which are thoroughly seasoned and creosoted. Tbls  -latter process not only lengthens the  life of tbe wood but reduces its ab  aorptive capacity tor water, thus preventing the weakening of the wood-  fibres and reducing its tendency to  buckle. The most approved method of  laying this pavement used in London,  New York and other large cities, ia to  first make a concrete foundation four  to six Inches thick on which is laid  a thin layer of sand, or, better still, of  moist Portland cement, Into which the  blocks are closely set.    s  The blocks are from five to nine  inches in depth and must be free from  defects. Care must be taken to place  tbem wltb the grain perpendicular to  the roadbed. If laid with the long  edgea at right angles to tbe curb the  joints are apt to become worn bl the  calks on tbe horses' shoes, so to prevent this and to best provide tor pos  slble expansion, the paving is laid at  an angle of about sixty-seven degrees  with the curb.

Hotel
Mr. A. Grossman has purchased the
Dunsmuir Hotel-���land, -building and
business���from Mr. David Gibb. The
property has a frontage of 100 feet on
Richards and 120 feet on Dunsmuir
street. The price paid waa $365,000,
which is probably the largest price
ever paid by a single Individual for
any Vancouver property.
The hotel building ls one of five
storeys, with 186 rooms. Mr. Grossman said that he. intended soon to
start work adding three storeys, which
would Increase the number of r-ooms
to 300. Mr. Gibb has leased the hotel
from tbe new owner, and will continue
to operate it.
Knfl Edward L. O. L. 1819 held their
regular meeting in the Orange Hall,
cor. 8th avenue and Pine street, on
Tuesday evening, 17th inst., when there
was a record attendance. Visitors
from Mount Pleasant, Kitsilano, West
Point Grey and other lodges came' in-
such numbers that extra, seating had
to be provided. A* considerable amount {
of business was disposed of, including
Initiations in all the degrees but one.
12th July celebratons were discussed.
This lodge, accompanied by Kitsilano,
West Point Grey, Eburne and Steveston Lodges, will parade from the Fair-

McLsnnan's Fate Now Established
Mystery which surrounded the sudden disappearance of the young bank
clerk, John B. McLennan, on March 22,
was cleared ^away Wednesday afternoon when Mr. Jervis, manager of Molsons Bank, positively identified the
body which Police Constable McTavlsh
found floating In the waters of False
Creek shortly after two o'clock aa
that of young McLennan.
No marka of violence were found on
the body. It la the opinion of the
police that the unfortunate young man
had stepped Into the waters of the
creek in some accidental and unexplained manner.
While Police Constable- McTavlsh
was patrolling his beat shortly after
two o'clock, Mr. J. B. Oaudie, i'45 Fifth
avenue east, a Great Northern Railway
foreman, informed him that he thought
he had noticed a body floating in the
creek. Together tbey made an investigation with the result that the body,
which was floating face downwards,
was taken from the water.
As the body had evidently been lnthe
water for some months, it was badly
decomposed and presented a gruesome
spectacle. The body was that of a man
5 feet 8 inches in height, and was
clothed in a dark suit and black shoes
and stockings. In the pockets of the
clothing was found an Invitation to an
At Home" from Mrs. Jonathan Rogers
addressed to Mr. John McLennan, a
cheque for $2 drawn on the Molsons
Bank, and a little over $1 in change,

man was thought to have had in his
possession at the time of his sudden
disappearance.     Fastened to a chain

Ottawa, June 13.���A bulletin of the
Census and Statistics Office issued
today gives preliminary estimates of
the areas sown to the principal grain
crops, and reports on their condition
at the end of May, according to the
returns received from crop-reporting
correspondents throughout Canada.
The reports show that the. month of
May.proved cold and dry. with frequent night frosts, and that these conditions, whilst favorable. to. seeding,
retarded the growth of the crops sown
and caused them to be unseasonably
backward.
The total area under wheat ln
Canada ls provisionally estimated at
9,816,300 acrea. or 67,900 acrea more
than in 1912, the area ln spring wheat
being 8,990,600 acres, or 13,100 acres
more. Oats occupy 9,608,600 acres,
compared with 9,216,900 acres in 1912,
an increase of 391,600 acres. Barley
occupies 1,425,200 acres ,an increase
of 10,000 acres; and rye 126,500 acres,'
a decreaae of 9,610 acres. For wheat,
barley and oats taken together the in*
crease represents 459,500 acres. The
estimated acreage under hay and
clover is 7,475,600 acres, compared
with 7,633.600 acres last year.
For the three Northwest provinces
of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Al*
berta, the total wheat area is estimated at 9,013,800 acres, as compared
with 8,961,800 acres; that ot oats at
5,207,700 acres, compared with 4,913,*
900 acres; and that of barley at 852,-
600 acres, compared with 809,800
acres, these differences representing
Increases of 52,000 acres for wheat,
293,800 acres for oats, and 42,800 acres
for barley, or 388,600 acres for the
three crops.
On May 31 the .condition of the
crops was reported as generaly favorable throughout Canada. Expressed
in percentage of the usual standard
of 100, taken as representing the promise of a full crop, the condition on
.May 31 for the Dominion was as fol-

NOVEL   FORESTRY
EXHIBITS
In connection with the Canadian For*
estry Association Convention ln Winnipeg, on the 7th, 8th apd 9th of Julyi
there, will be interesting exhibits of
forest woods and forest Insects, which
will enable the people of the prairies
to see at once the quality of the various klnda of timber growing ln the
province, and the pests which are moat
destructive to them. Experts have
bean engaged in research and collec*
tion with the object of making the
form of these exhibits as Interesting aa
possible to the general public. ,
It la expected that there will be a
number of other features ln connection
with the convention which will give, lt
a distinctly unique interest to all those
attending. There are assurances from
a large number of forestry experts and
officials, both in Canada and the United
8tates, that they will be In attendance,
and It is assured that the convention
will be one of the best in the history
of the Association.
Mr. Lawler, the secretary of the Association, reports tbat the recent advances In ideas of wise use of the
forest resource are very noticeable in
the West at the present time, and that
it Is not unlikely, considering the demands which are being made on all
sides for further scientific management, and In view of the Importance of
the questions to be considered at the
Winnipeg Convention, that considerable progress should be the direct outcome of the present activities.
PULPWOOD EXPORT
due to the decline in price of pulpwood In the local jnarket, the average
price paid by' Canadian Anna being six
dollars per cord, Whereas foreign inns
paid an average1 price of six dollars
and elghtgr-two, cants ($6.82) per cord
for the pulpwood exported. Thia exported wood, had it been worked up in
Canada, would have been sufficient to
supply fifty-four pulp mills of the
average sits operating in the oocu_tr>
at present. It would have produced
771,136 tons of pulp, which, at the
average export price ot 617.10 per ton
as compared with the price of $S*SS
paid for the manufactured pulpwood,
represents a net lose to the oountry of
over alx and one-half million dollars.
Btatlatlos show that spruce still eon*
atltutea over seventy-five per cent of
the pulpwood cut, but there haa been
an Increasing use of balsam fir In the
eaatera provinces aad western hemlock in British Columbia, with very
satisfactory results in each caae.
When the sulphate process,' recently
brought into use in Canada, comes Into
wider use, there will be a decided Increase in the amount of fir and hemlock used for pulp. This process,
which is used at present by three mills
in Quebec, yields excellent pulp for
the manufacture of finer grades of
paper and for wrapping. The solution
used for dissolving the chipped wood
into pulp, consists of seventy-five per
cent, sodium sulphate ("salt-cake"),
and twenty-five per cent, of lime.. No
acids are used, giving economy of
maintenance, and almost all klnda of
wood are adaptable to the process,
which is, in this way especially, superior to soda and sulphite methods.'

In five minutes from the time  the downpour commenced the streets  were four inches deep in rapidly-flowing water, and everyone was hurrying  to shelter. Thunder broke at intervals  and lightning played with a vividness  rarely it ever experienced here. A  terrific clap of thunder occurred when  the rain and hail was falling its  fiercest, and the report echoed brer  the tops of the buildings as If the  city was being bombarded.  Other Districts .Escape  Curiously, while the heavy downpour ln the business section pf the  city astonished all, it was only a little  drizzle in South Vancouver. Residents  along the Fraser River heard the  thunder, wondered ajt the flashes of  lightning, but felt scarcely any pf the  rain. Hall whitened the* lower slopes  of the mountains on the Nortb bhore.

The News has no sympathy with the  wild-catting carried on by some of the  real estate firms of Vancouver and  other cities, of properties adjoining  the city of Red Deer. In many in*  stances accounts of Red Deer's growth  are grossly exaggerated, and in some  cases actually untruthful. The truth  regarding our city ls good enough, and  false statements should be frowned  down. For instance, a Vancouver firm  reported the G.T.P. as entering Red  Deer. Another stated we had Indus*  tries here that do not exist in our  midst; others represented the A.C.R.  yards with fifty tracks, all of which  are contrary to facts. Subdivision  property is being sold miles out in the  country at exborbitant rates, and tbe  poor, deluded purchasers will soon  realize tbey have been1 duped and a  black eye will be given our fair name.  It is time the Council and Board of  trade took the question up, and  warned the people exploiting farm  property in the neighborhood of the  city as town lot subdivisions that they  would be shown up unless they ceased  their nefarioua profession of apparent  fraud.  Red Deer la holding her.own with  any of.the towns or cities of the West.  While business is quiet; aa it is everywhere, tbere Is a feeling of solid ae  curity in our growth in the future, and  a feeling that we must maintain our  good name at any cost Therefore,  we wish to emphasize again tbat the  truth la good enough tor Red Deer.  ���������Bed Deer Newe.  JUST ASK THE LADIE8* AID  "Blue Monday Musings" to the Living Church: I have been saving these  verses tor a long time. They remind  me of a faithful mother ln Israel, who  rehearsed all that the women did in a  certain country pariah. "What does the  vestry do?" I aaked; and, with no glint  of Irony, ahe replied, 'Oh, they stand  by us!" The poem ls from the Christian Endeavor World:  The old church bell has long been  cracked,  Ita call was but a groan;  It seemed to sound the funeral knell  With every broken tone,  "We need a bell," the brethren said,  "But taxes must be paid;  We have no money we can spare���������  Just ask the Ladies* Aid."  The shingles on the roof were old;  The rain came down in rills;  The brethren slowly shook their heads  And spoke of "monthly bills."  The chairman of the board arose  And said, "I am afraid  That we shall have to lay the case  Before the Ladies' Aid."  The  carpet had   been  patched  and  patched  Till quite beyond repair,  And through the aisles and on the  steps  The boards showed hard and bare,  "It is too bad," the brethren said;  "An effort must be made  To raise an interest on the part  Of members of the Aid."  *******4 ��������� * ****** I'! .  ���������<���������< 4i4'H"l 4 *** v II tin < I 14 * *���������  STANDING PRIOE8--NOT SPEOIAL    '  PERJ_B.

BIRCH ANP BEECH FOR FLOORING  Birch and beech, on account of  their cheapness, are becoming more  and more popular as the supply of oak  and maple decreases. This statement  taken from a bulletin soon to be Issued by the Forestry Branch, Department of agriculture, Ottawa, on the  Wood-using Industries of Ontario, is  based on reports received from over  twelve hundred firms, and is therefore,  worthy of consideration. Tbe average  wholesale price per thousand feet,  board measure, given in the above bulletin for maple and oak flooring ia  $22.82 and $66.78, respectively. The  average price for birch and beech flooring, on the other band, is $19.71 and  $21.74 respectively, which represents  quite a saving, especially when compared with oak.  But these woods have other qualities  to recommend them besides cheapness. Twenty-two per cent of the  flooring manufactured ln Ontario is  made from the wood of the black and  the yellow birch, the more common  white or paper birch not usually growing to a sufficient size for this purpose. Birch is a hard, strong, finegrained, reddish-brown wood, which  takes a high polish and, therefore, is  very suitable for flooring. It can be  stained to imitate more expensive  woods, such as mahogany, cherry or  walnut, and, being easily worked, it  is also extensively used for furniture  and interior decoration.  Beech is one of Ontario's cheapest  hardwoods, the ordinary grades of lumber, costing only thirteen dollars and  sixty-one cents per thousand feet,  beard measure. It -frequently won  stitutes one-tenth to one-third of the  cheaper-grades of birch floorings, but  its qualities justify its separate use  for it is strong, fine-grained and so  hard that it becomes quite slippery in  time. It is also UBed for furniture to  some extent  Of the birch and beech used in On  Trimble ft Norris have good buys.

CHAPTER XXXI.  The Wife of His Bosom  It was late ln tbo afternoon, and  snowing. Johnson, tbe friendly waiter  who had assisted Paul to catch the  mall train to Weyberne, stood In the  'ball of the "Pendennle." watching  through the half-glass door the slow,  feathery swirl of flakes. He waa musing upon the winter's early advance,  when a man ot fine physique passed  the bon palings, entered the gateway,  land aacended the steps of the hotel.  The stranger was the tallest and the  broadest man he had ever been called  upon to behold, and Johnson looked  M him with Interest as he pushed open  the half-glass door. He was hand*  some, too, be saw In a decided satisfactory way. There was no shillyshallying about It the first glance  chronicled the undlsputable fact and  tbe second encouraged and maintained  tbe good impression. His features  were good, remarkably good; a tali  complexion bad been colored and tinted to a nicety by Nature's artiste���������the  son and the wind; tbe eyes were grey,  and had a look ln tbem aa lt tbey  oould focus aa object some distance  ahead The bronse moustache, the  ends having aa upward curve, was  dewOy damp, and glistened to the light  as the door swung to behind him.  "Mr. Farley in?" be inquired, in a  pleasant slightly anxious tone.  Johnson answered ln the affirmative, and hesitated when, tbe straagei  asked to be shown the way to his presence. He was unwilling to disturb  Mr. Farley, he said, because tbe last  time he peeped into tbe little sitting  room behind tbe hall tbe gentleman  fast asleep.   Tbe teal truth of  ly he entered and closed tho door soil  ly on Johnson.  The room was ia semi-darkness am  comfortably warm still, though the fin  had 'burned low. The couch stood be  tween the fireplace and the table, am  Paul lay there asleeep, the woundei  hand in a black silk sling, and th.  other tucked under his head. Fell:  tip-toed across the room and bent ove:  the couch.  Paul awake, alert his nerves on thi  stretch, looking out for danger slg  nals, and Paul asleep, unconscious a  criticism, the muscles of his face re  taxed, the emaciation, the wearinesi  the hollows beneath his eyes plainl-  -visible, were totally different persons  Felix had nb idea he was so thin, ei  Worn, so clearly, unmistakably, ill, am  awhile back, a month, sure, be wai  fairly plump and looked bo uncommon  ly well. This was a revelation; Felt-  was gaining an insight Into what Far  ley had suffered, what he had endure,  while unswervingly prosecuting thi  physical and mental struggle he haf  waged in order to attain his doubtfu  inglorious ends. Presently, he drop  ped on one knee and looked mon  closely at the careworn face.

Felix asked, seating himself on th*  couch and ignoring the table.  "To eat? Oh, I don't know, any  thing Josnson likes to bring; I havi  no particular appetite."  "Wbat Is lt you are doing?", glano  ing at the heterogeneous mass of pa  pers on the table.  ' "Odds and ends. There are som.

Lee in an impressive  manner. On the suggestion of Mayor  Gray, endorsed by the Business Men's  Association, all places of business  were closed between the hours of 1 and  4 as a period of mourning and a mark  of respect for the deceased.  Flags all over the city were flying  half mast   Thirteen hotel proprietors < ���������  in the city held a meeting and decided !  to close their places of business between 2:30 and 3:30 in deference to  the memory of Mr. Lee.  A public funeral was held at Queen's  Avenue Methodist Church Friday afternoon at 2:30 of an impressive nature.  Nearly every public body in the city  and district was represented, and  thousands of private cltisens attended.  A private service was held at the  family residence preceding Ahe church  service.  The pall-bearers were "Sheriff T. J.  Armstrong, King Solomon Masonic  Lodge; Mayor A. W. Gray, representing the city; Mr. W. T. Reid, representing Queen's Avenue Methodist  Church; Mr. L. M. Richardson, representing the Board of Trade; Police  Magistrate H. L. Edmonds, representing the Conservative Association; and  Mr. T. S. Annandale, a close personal  friend.  The order of the cortege was as follows: City police, city band, firemen,  Vancouver- Board of Trade, city Board  of Trade, Progressive Association,  mayor and aldermen, Grand Lodge of  Masons adn Masonic lodges, the hearse  and pall-bearers, mourners, mounted  olice, Oddfellows' lodges, civic officials  and employees, members of Parliament Vancouver city representatives,  Royal Agricultural and Industrial Society, local and provincial Conservative  Associations, Union of B.

"Beggars can't be choosers," he  said, smiling; "I havo my living to  gat"  "Get It when you return."  "This appointment would be snapped up; it's one ln a thousand. I havo  applied for it, and I must stick to my  t-fluns. Besides, I am still ln Sir Thomas's pay. I am working for him,  else I could not stay herf. I am sorry.  When do you go?"  "Not at all; I am not going alone,"  he said, and a dreadful uncomfortable  silence ensued.  .   "What about Miss Agnes?" Paul von*  fitured nervously; "couldn't she go?"  "I daresay sbe could, but I dont  want her. I am in quest of a companion as much as a valet."  Paul looked at bis toot on tbe fen.  der while * elix stared at the fire.  "Paul," he said nt last, looking up  Into tba dark troubled face, bis own  rather whl^, Ws^grsy eyes^very witt-  ful, "It's all humbug about the companion valet; I didn't know how to get  it out, but I want you to go with me  r*ge my wife���������ni my dear wife���������wjll  |W������?"

Paul gave a shivering, sobbing sigh,  raited his free arm, and laid it around  toe squire's neck.  "Tou know this thing, yon know me  aa I ana���������vain, careless of the welfare  of others, unmindful ot the misery I  brought to those who were kind to  me. Tou know, you have witnessed  my selfishness, you have teen to what  lengths I would go, you taw death  Itself made a stepping-tono to fame���������  and yet you ask me to become your  wife���������I don't understand it"  "Don't try," he said, soothingly,  stroking the glossy hair; "don't trouble, don't bother this dear head about  anything more. I am here to aee after  you, to take care of you, to think for  you, and no man ever knew better  than I what he's about It's a wife  I'm after, a friend, a companion, a  comrade. It's the dear woman I've  longed for, that I've begged Heaven to  send me. I once told you whoever or  whatever she was, when she came I  should take her to my heart, and not  question the Wisdom tbat sent her.  I am not taking note of the garb you  were sent in; I am thanking Heaven  #ou are here; that a wine, loving Prov*  Idence opened a way for me to grasp  the answer to my prayer when lt came.  I am so happy, so thankful, so blessed,  I am well nigh dazed with the wonderful knowledge that the grand festival  In my life has come! Now, if yon cry,  Paul, I shall cry, too, and lt won't do  for the attentive Johnson to come  ���������nd catch us two fellows crying in  one another's arms���������eh?"  Paul smiled through his wet eyelashes aa Felix turned up his chin.  wiped the tears from hit cheeks; and  tried to erase the blue shade from hit  upper Up.  "WlU lt wash oft?" he asked.  "No," Paul said; "but lt will wear  oft" y ���������  "How long will the process take?"  "A week perhaps, but not longer,"  he said; kissing the hand that was exploring his face; "you mutt know, you  must feel, you must think, I have done  wrong, and you ought to punish melt you don't, perhaps God will."  There was a silence, ln which Fella  held Paul's chin in the hollow of hit  hand, and looked deep down Into the  depths of his glorious eyes. Finally  he laid his cheeks on the hot, damp  forehead, a world of tenderness and  Ineffable love in the action.  "Tou will never hear a word of that  sort a word of reproach, trom me,"  he whispered; "lf you hadn't done  what you call wrong I should havo  dragged out a dull, lonely existence at  the Manor and died a bachelor. I  haven't room to feel more on tbat  point and at to punishing you," his  voice shook, "I tried correcting you  once, Paul, and tbo memory of that  punishment will haunt me to my dying  day���������lt will spoil my whole life. Tou  have no idea how lt has worried me,  how lt teases me; I've never had a  good night's rest since. Directly I  close my eyes I begin that thrashing  business. I can't get away from lt  Last night I was ln a dreadful state;  it seemed I had battered yon to a  pulp, and���������"  Paul lifted the arms about bis neck,  turned round, ad confronted the distress in the grey eyes with a face ex*  prtsslve of the liveliest astonishment  'Why, Felix," he exclaimed, rising  and standing on the hearth, while the  squire subsided into the chair he  vacated, "you don't mean to aay you  bare given that���������that 'rotten show,'  ss Tom Hargrave politely puts it,  another thought? I received no more  than I deserved. It you had thrashed  me evety day while I was at Weyberne I should only have had my de*  sorts. I did not really mind lt; lt was  not such pain and. suffering to me as  you seem to imagine. The chemistry  of the thing is this. Undoubtedly  where the soul heralds an attraction,  mind acts on mind, the Influence being'intensified and Increased by the  heat of an excited Intellect, whereby  the subtle sympathies would at once  be potent and plastic I don't pretend to define or understand the process, but I'U swear that in the excitement that night your mind met mine  and engendered a like heat; it radiated  and kindled a coirespondlng passion.  Tou were actively Inscnttble. I was  passively Insensible; in the heat and  mental commotion you were uncon*  tdout of striking, and Iii tht tenacious  hold of your will and mind over mine  I waa equally unconscious of the blows  struck���������the tact of my riding Tom'a  machine the next evening to Bast  Weyberne proves that. I waa not hurt,  or, laboring under tome tort of in*  fluenct, I waa not aware of any undue  discomfort" * ���������  "Tou want me to believe yon never  felt that thrashing?"

The only  antidote i know of for a mind poisoned  like mine is marriage, Paulus. I don't  sty It will cure tbe disease, but it will  allay tome bf the irritation. When can  it be. heart of my heart?"  "When you like," he said quietly,  smiling; "I am willing to sacrifice all  feminine prerogatives to your peace of  mind."  "Then if we are married and on the  set within tbe next fortnight I need  not feeel I bave bullied you into it."  'Wbat about Agnes and Dr. Hunter,  do they know?" Paul ashed suddenly,  sitting down on the couch, and remembering Cecilia Hay and her womanly  attributes. "Tbe doctor won't approve of this alliance."  "They bavent an inkling at present" he laughed, twitting round to  look nt blm. "and Jack's approval is  neither asked for nor wanted*- the  whole question consists of whether  you approve of me. Agnes will stay  with the Hargraves until we return,  ���������nd, what is more, postpone her marriage n month. 1 wonder wbat Matter  Jsck will say to that���������yon look very  white, friend Paul; bave I tired you?"  "Tou are not likely to do that. Felix, I���������"  Felix rote and looked at him anxl*  outly.  "There is an hour before we dine,"  he said, taking out hla watch, "I shall  order you a plate of toup; yon will  sat It to please me, I know."  He went outside to waylay Johnson,  and ordered a small quantity of soup  with a glass of the best port stirred ln,  waited for it and brought It in himself. Paul ate lt without a demur  while he meekly watched Felix tidy  the table, and without a tingle protest  tllowed him to collect the scattered  .mass of papers, dump them together  in one irregular, mixed pile, tnd tie  them around with a piece of string.  , Felix placed the empty plate on the  bracket in the hall and returned to  make himself responsible for the Invalid's general colnfort He turned  Paul's feet upon the couch, arranged  the cushions with exactitude under hie  head and shoulders, busied himself  immensely, and finally came around to  'the front leaned over, and looked at  him.  "I should very much like to take you  in my arms and kiss you, but I am  afraid of upsetting your dlsorganlseed  equilibrium; there ls such a quantity  of extraneous love pent up here,"  touching his chest "and you. seem so  frail I am nervous about touching you;  I am more than half afraid of crushing the breath from that slim, lissom  body. What shall I do with you, you  dainty, delicate morsel of humanity?"  "Oh, I shall be all right" Paul said  with quivering lips, "now the trouble  Is removed. Tou know, Felix, I have  hsd a good deal of worry one way and  another, and you yourself have been  a fruitful source of anxiety to me."  "I can return the compliment there,  friend Paul," he said, kneeling beside  the couch; "you've played fast and  loose with my feelings, you've hacked  my heart about just anyhow, and now  I expect to be compensated���������one kiss.  my soul, to live on thronghlEe night;  will you kiss me���������Pauline.

Dash it all, and  from a fellow, too, who hss served an  apprenticeship at that sort ot thing.  Now, I'm a novice; I've never gone  courting maid, widow or wife, but by  Jove!   I think I can surpass that"  Hitherto Paul had been kissed by  women, principally by a woman to  whom be objected, to whom he entertained an instinctive aversion, and he  was "naturally considerably taken  aback by Felix's masterful embrace,  by tbe enthusiaslum, the verve> the  passion of his kisses. The pressure of  the strong arms hurt his bones, and  the heavy moustache pressed tightly  over his mouth stopped'his breath.  He was making an altogether new and  startling acquaintance with Felix.  Felix had suddenly burst upon him in  a new light; Felix was no longer a  dear friend, a. good comrade, but a  strong, overpowering, passionate  lover. The experience was bewildering, rather alarming; he felt confused,  suffocated, hysterical. He loved Felix,  he could not resist him, he could not  hold his life "through his lips! The  hysterical idea, the foolish imagery ot  a nervous system out ot gear frightened him, and Felix was all at onoe  brought to his senses by a feeble flood  of unlooked-for tears.

(Written for the   Western   Call   by  Frank Li. Vosper.)  On the moors above the village of  St. Neot is an enclosure known as the  "Crow pound," and the legend connected with it is this: When Saint  Neot was a boy he was employed by a  farmer to keep the crows away from  the wheat, Now it happened on a certain Sunday morning that young Neot  was sent as usual to keep' away the  crows, with strict orders not on any  account to quit the field until night  had sent them to their roosts In the  woods that-then, as now, probably  crowned the hills above the valley'of  the Fowey river. But the young saint's  heart yearned to join In the service  that wat being, held down In the valley  where the handsome old structure now  stands that for many centuries has  borne bis name and which was being  conducted according to the beautiful  long before Augustine came to bring  that church under the domination of  Rome. Accordingly, when the fanner,  who was also a devout worshipper,  happened to see blm engaged in the  service, He did not interrupt bin., but  on coming out of church he called blm  and rebuked htm sternly for neglecting  his work. In reply to bit master's  scolding Neot led blm Into the churchyard and, to tbe surprise ot all tbe  congregation, pointed to the field where  the crows were penned in one corner  inside a slight mound of earth and  stones that the young saint had built  around them, with strict orders to stay  there. Now, l do not suppose there Is  a single Cornish man, woman or child  tbat believes tbat tbis quaint old legend is literally true, but, strange to  tell, there are hundreds of people in  British Columbia, Including many  members of the Government, who are  simple enough, or pretend to be, to  imagine tbat one and immorality can  be restricted to one corner of a city.  That, in fact, the right way to keep a  city clear ot undesirable characters is  to allot one part of the town to them,  and, following Saint Neot's example,  tell them politely to stay there. On  my recent visit to Cornwall 1 stood in  tbe old "Crow pound" and, looking  down on the lovely valley ot St. Neot  and up at the wild, rugged moorlands  above me, I recalled those and kindred  legends when an adder, one of the few  poisonous reptiles found ln Cornwall,  came out of a furze buih and was  quickly killed. Moral���������"Crow pounds"  snd "Segregated" districts swarm  with adders.   But will they stay there?  New Use for Pretty Wives  Certain motorists have discovered  a method of getting all repairs on  the road done free of charge and  without lifting a finger themselves.  The other day a man was motoring through Surrey to the south  coast when he came upon a car by  the roadside, with a young woman  trying to get one of the back tires  off. She was a very charming girl,  and gracefully accepted his offer  of assistance. He effected the repair for her. getting very dirty.  She thanked him and he went on.  After luncheon at a hotel a little  later, he wat sitting in the smoking  room when the girl drove up with  another woman and two men in the  car. The men came in laughing and  talking, and one said to the other:  "That's a splendid idea of yours,  deserting the car and leaving your  wife to prevail on kind passers-by to  effect your repairs while you sit at  a safe distance and watch."  The other replied: "She thought  of it herself. One day we had a  puncture, and I left her a few minutes to go to a cottage nearby  When I returned I found four  people offering to help. Of course,  on that occasion we did the repair  ourselves."  THE WawaBN Q__tf_  Ernest Shaw, D.C.  CHIROPRACTOR  Has removed his office  '" 'to..'  Suite 307, Lee Bldg.

I * **********   ������������������ \ I I M *** I M ********* *****  Pugilist Acquitted  Calgary, Alta:, June 24.���������'.'Not guilty," was the verdict in the trial of  Arthur Pelkey, heavyweight pugilist,  who was tried for manslaughter as  a result of the death in the ring here  May 24 of Luther McCarty, white  heavyweight champion. Chief Justice  Harvey's charge to the jury was unfavorable to Pelkey, but the verdict  acquitting the defendant was reached  after forty-five minutes of deliberation. As Pelkey stepped from the  prisoner's box he was warmly congratulated.  Prise Fight Defined  Chief Justice H.arvey defined for the  first time what constitutes a prize  fight ln the Dominion of Canada. He  held that an encounter with fists, privately arranged for, was a prise fight,  and was not permissible. Hit, interpretation of the statute, lf lt stands,'  puts an end to all boxing contests in  the Dominion where the authorities  are inclined to interfere. The Verdict  of the Jury was to the effect thit the  contest was a prize fight, but the jury  held against the belief that Pelkey  had inflicted a blow which dislocated  the neck of his antagonist.  Precedent Established .\  The'Jury, by its verdict, memorial-  lies the provincial legislature to pa_s  a law defining specifically what constitutes a prize fight, and prohibiting  the staging of such contests in Alberta in the future.  His lordship objected to the jury's  recommendation, asserting that his  definition of the law and the decision  of the jury established a precedent  and made further legislation unnecessary.  His lordship also informed Pelkey  that had the jury adjudged him guilty  he would have Imposed no sentence  on him, as the case was more to test  the law rather than to fix the guilt of  the defendant  Aasassins of Grand Vizier Executed  Constantinople, June 24.���������Twelve of  the men sentenced to death in con*  hection with the assassination of Mah*  moud Schefket Pasha, the late grand  vizier, were executed this morning in  Bayazide Square.  ������ The place was surrounded by a double cordon of armed military police,  troops and city police, but there was  no disturbance. /  The condemned men walked to the  scaffold with firm step.  ;   Several of them delivered addresses  from the gibbet.
