This would be a serious mistake in  view of the proposed harbor developments at that  point.

This  move is regarded generally throughout Canada  as a wise one. Saturday Night of Toronto, an independent newspaper, says of it:  Good J-i.fi*  "The report from Ottawa that the Dominion  government is taking active steps to secure immigrants from Norway, Sweden and JPenmark is  gratifying to those who wish to see Canada peopled witb the proper kind of men. The prospe**  fty of the great State of Minnesota, which is  >/, largely populated by Swedes, shows bow Norse-  r men would flourish in our northern clime. Not  only the West but the Province of Ontario should  welcome newcomers from these countries. There  are many sections of Ontario which Danish settlers especially would find congenial. The Danes  are the finest dairy men in the world, while Ontario is unsurpassed anywhere as a land suitable  for this industry. If our populace is to be fed  there must be a large increase in the output of  agricultural products, and therefore an influx of  men whose training would assist tbis increase is  devoutly to be wished.''

Because he has made good as Mayor of Vancouver.  We may differ from him in some details as to method, but in the main his year of  service has been energetic, able and honest His motives cannot be questioned and  his ability is well known.  He has directed the affairs of the ,city through one of the most trying years in  its whole history/ and with marked success.    *'  Mayor Baxter has won a host of friends by the clear, energetic manner in  which he has handled our affairs, and has, irodoubtedly, earned tiie right to a second  term. . !

BAXTER  HY V**Y P*AJt tUTU������D4Y iUKSfT  ������y Prof. E* Odium, ������.A., B.Sc.  Dear "Sunset Glow." .'Z^^_i.,^  Jn the twilight "glow" of your last issue, you  were kind enough to talk to me, or about me, on  the very front page of your inimitable sheet-���������  journal.  Now it is a pleasant occupation to read your  editorials at all times, when a person haa nothing  else to do. because you are racy, caustic, amusing  original, pointed in speech, frolicsome in language,  clever in saying wbat is not fact on all fours,  ready at insinuation, aud a fairly good, all-round  Liberal-pen-driver.  So you have had a nightmare, Mr. Editor, as a  result of reading a paragraph or two of prof essor  Odium's remarks, truthful and timely remarks, on  "Helpless Protestantism." Be of good cheer,  dear Sunset. The "nightmare" will take to heels  and gallop away into utter darkness; and in due  time your normal condition will return, provided  you do not read another paragraph written by  that man, Odium. Look the matter straight in  the face, and see if Odium's letter if very much  out of place; or in truth a timely production of a  practical mind. Here is a quotation from the  above heading, "Helpless Protestantism:"  " . . Now where is our boasted, enlightened  Protestantism? It is nearly a myth from a  political viewpoint. It is a round, senseless zero.  And it cannot organize. It has no means for  organization. It lacks the constructive power,  and in an election it nullifies its own actions.  Practically as many vote 'yes' as 'no.' They are  helpless and useless."  The above quotation is clearly put.   Now, Mr.  Sunset, in place of trying to fool around this tre-  m melons fact, and throw dust in the eyes of your  , readers, take up my proposition and tear it to  pieces, if you have the ability.  In any contest where the Roman Church is  united, and there is an election on of a party  political character, and where the Conservatives  and Liberals are nearly equally divided���������who  must inevitably turn the election scales their own  way ? You know, if you are capable and sincere,  that in just such a case the result will be to give  the Roman Catholic people the man they wish.   ^  The old line parties nearly nullify each other  in voting where they are fairly divided.

Sir:  I am glad to get your valuable paper every week with its notes of passing events and comments on general  topics. I sometimes visit Wesley  fchurch on Sunday mornings and  walk the whole distance and enjoy it  very much until I get to the Public  Market on the corner of Smithe and  Grandville streets and see the place  wide open for business. I saw in your  last issue that the police were closing the. shops in South Vancouver on  Sundays? All stores in Kitsilano are  closed on Sundays, yet a Public Market on a principal street in the West  End is allowed to be wide open. It  seems to be the .law does not work  out equally or else the law officers  are not doing their duty. Crowds of  people pass that corner on their way  to places of worship on Sundays and  it must be very annoying to see such  open desecration of the Sabbath.  How to stop it is a problem for  consideration.  Yours truly,  T.  WOOTTON.  2526 Ind. Ave. West.  October 22nd, 1913. ���������   ....  ON A PRAIRIE TELEGRAPH POLE.  By Arthur Stringer.

PUBLIC'S RIGHTS  NEED PROTECTION  Mr. H.H. Stevens Urges Legislation Covering Industrial  Disputes in Order to Prevent  Strikes.  (From News-*Advertiser'  At the meeting of the Ward V,  South Vancouver .Conservative Association, held at Fraser Hall last  evening, Mr. H. H. Stevens, in an  address, expressed himself as in favor  of a Dominion law by which industrial disputes would be brought under control to protect the interests-  of the great third party involved in  all differences between labor and  employers���������the public. Mr. Stevens' utterances were loudly applauded, and a vote of thanks was tendered  him.  Mr. F. Way, president of the association, occupied the chair, and Mr.  Stevens was preceded on the platform by Councillor Thomas, School  Trustee Campbell and Mr. A. H. B.  Macgowan,' M.P.P. School; Trustee  Campbell urged measures whereby  easier access to farm lands for local  people, particularly for the young  men graduating from the High  schools, could be secured, and Mr.  Macgowan detailed what the Provincial Government was doing to encourage land setlement.  South  Vanvouver Helped  Mr. Stevens dealt with postal "facilities in South Vancouver, stating  since the Conservatives had come  into office the service in South Vancouver Had been doubled, and that  other improvements were being established from time to time and in  contemplation. He dealt with the Oriental influx at some length in reply  to a request and then turned to legislation, which was proposed to be  taken up by the Conservative Government at Ottawa. He dealt with  the naturalization bill, which was to  be submitted at the next session and  expressed himself in favor, of restriction which would raise the standard  of citizenship.  Taking up the question of industrial disputes he said that the matter  presented one of the most serious  problems in the world today, in New  Zealand, in Europe, in the States and  in this country there was at the present time a series of occurences in  the dealings between capital and ja-  b6r that showed how deep rooted the  trouble was and how necessary, it was  to immediately take steps to cope  with it effectually before the evils  that were known and not remedied  struck too deep into the social fabric  of this country.  tabor l-sws Inadequate/  Here on this coast we had witnessed-the happenings in the coal  mining area of Vancouver Island and  what had taken place there had shown  unmistakably the total inadequacy of  our labor laws. The results of what  legal steps had been taken had been  absolutely futile/ He was not entering into any controversy as to the  rights or the wrongs of either side.  He was just pointing out that there  was no machinery in the- Dominion  or in British Columbia that could  bring about a settlement of the dispute-  There had been much talk of the  rights of the employers and much  talk of the' rights of the employees  and he did not want it to be inferred  that he was taking a position antagonistic to or in favor of either.  What he wanted to point out was  that conditions should not exist which  would allow any interest to supercede  the rights of the public in the matter.  AU three interests had rights in the  matter and all three should be protected.  Neither the Provincial Government nor the Dominion Government  officials had exhausted all the resources in their power to bring about  a settlement. As far as Mr. Crothers,  the Dominion Minister, was concerned, he could say conscientiously  that he had done all he could do  within the letter of the law, but to  Mr, Stevens' mind, in a case like  that existing on Vancouver Island,  it was the duty of a government official to go even beyond the letter of  the law and employ methods which,  if not sanctified by legal enactment,  would certainly be supported by the  moral strength of the community, in  whose interests they would be  tended.  *  ex-  r he -  Where tt pays to deal.

See the strong .tendency to  English Style  Oi THREE-BUTTON MODEL 61  Type-Natural  Narrow  Shoulders  Shapely  Waist; and  Snug Skirts  CliMewart  The foolishness of throwing open  for homestead entry, in the usual way,  extra valuable areas of land that bave  been unavailable hitherto, was demonstrated last spring at Edmonton. A  tract of land In an old timber berth  was to be offered for homesteadtng  on the morning ot Tuesday, April 22.  On the Saturday before a rush Into  line began, but the police dispersed  the crowd. On Monday evening, however, after a conference between the  police and the land office authorities,  it was decided to let the applicants  line up. This Is how the News Plain-  dealer described the delightfully genteel Incident:  "Immediately the clock tolled the  hour of nine, a free fight took place  between the applicants for positions  and the police. Blows were, exchanged  freely, with the result tbat one man,  who, by the way, headed a petition to  the Dominion Oovernment ln June last  year, that the land be thrown open,  received a blow on the back of the  head with an Iron bar which rendered  him unconscious for several minutes.  This fracas lost him his position ln  line, but a personal friend jumped Into his place, and held lt till he recovered. He obtained fourth position,  which he held till morning, when he  secured his pick."  How pleasant! What a fine expression of good government! What a  perfectly just and desirable way of  giving the weak an equal chance with  the strong! What a business-like administration of valuable public resources!  It 1b really time that our homestead  regulations were revised to meet occasions of this Bort���������Canadian Countryman.

He considered that South Vancouver, with Us  large area and Ita Industr.al sli-S, was  an ideal place for a municipal plant  which would prove a success. It the  difficulty of expensive sites could be  gotten over by the securing of land at  a reasonable price, and power was  supplied at a reasonable rate, Industrial concerns would gladly avail  themselves of it At the first power  would be obtained from steam, the  latest form of turbine being brought  into use, which would not take much  room.. Steam would be generated by  the burning of coal and wood/; and  might ultimately be obtained by the  burning of refuse as had been found  quite practicable. Mr. Rawden gave  a large number of figures, which had  evidently been cornplled with care and  labor and seemed to bear out his contention.  The members of the association  present urged that it was impossible  to over-estimate the Importance of  Mr. Rawden's statements, but they  said that It was a matter which should  be thoroughly discussed and expert  opinion obtained on it One Of the  members said that he wished to correct an opinion which had gone abroad,  about the Council submitting a by-law  for the municipal plant The fact was  petitions were being signed throughout the municipality, and lf the petitions were sufficiently'signed such a  by-law would be submitted! In view  of tbe importance of the matter, it was  locally agreed that the next meeting  of the association should be devoted  to this discussion, and Mr. Martin, secretary, said he would see the executive and find If lt could be arranged.  It seems probable that next Thursday  the association will have a public  meeting, to which the Reeve and Council will be Invited. Mr. Rawden will  be present to answer any questions  with regard to the matter. A member  stated that as these proposals, if can  ried out, would effect a large area  and population, he hoped that tiie ratepayers would study the question so aa  to give an intelligent Idea of the mat-  _S~  S-**i  w*  ~"  -*  though there was no money yet itter.

He.saw a car making at him from one  side, a motor-cycle on the other, a  motor-lorry in the rear, and a taxicab  threatened his waistcoat buttons.  Zing-gling! He looked up, and  saw a runaway aeroplane in rapid descent. There was but one chance.  He was standing on a man-hole cover.  Quickly seizing it he lifted the lid  and jumped into the hole, but alas!  'only to be run over by a tub train.  The Board of Works, which met on  Saturday, brought In the recommendation for several miles of new sidewalks to be built, of which S140 feet  Is 4-foot sidewalk and 12,170 feet ls 3-  plank sidewalk. The light department  have recommended the assigning of  ten new lights at the following points:  Milton Road and Oak Street, Sperling  Road and Oak Street, Hudson Street  and 8perllng Road, Hudson Street and  Markbam Road. Sperling Road and  Granville Street, on Sperling Road  midway between Hudson and Oak  Street Eighteenth Avenue and Highbury Street, Twentieth Avenue and  Dunbar Street, and Cunningham Street  and Howe Street, and on the corner of  Tupper Street end Sixteenth Avenue.  The secretary /was Instructed to write  the City Council to se If they would  pay one-halt the sum tor this light,  as It is situated on the city limits.  The acting chief of police was asked  to bring in a report as to what other  new lights were necessary.  H. K. Dutcber, electrical engineer,  was asked tor copies ot his summary  on a municipal electric light and power plant that they might be presented  to the various ratepayers' organizations.  Thirty-five building permits were Issued for the past month, this sum total  of which amounts to about f 51,000.  KERRISDALE.

Milwaukee &������8t Paul Railway,  Into Vancouver from at. point M 'welty  present line to Seattio, are reported"  from competent authority.   Tho project is the construction of a through  railroad from United States to Alaska.

The Standard Oil Hone/ Interest* ._  are connected with the scheme. With-  tn tho past yoar valuable oil Balds -  have been discovered In Alaska by experts sent out by the big oil trust, aad' "  tt Is believed that with adequate development tho new fields will become'  extremely profitable.  With tbe building of this road a  long-cherished dream of the United  Statea Government will haye bean realised, direct rail connection with Al*  aska, which would be invaluable la  caae of war. Tho question remain^,.  where would Vancouver stand to gain  by the scheme? According to tha  plans of the promoters, aa outlined IS  brief above, the value of the line to  this dty would be more apparent than  real. The fade ot tho northern fait  of the province and of the Yukon,  which should have ita natural market  In thia dty, would very probably'find  ita way to Seattle, for .Vaa-oopvar  would be only a way station on the  new railway, and -Seattle would be -he  terminus. This is an aspect of thi  project which will probably appeal to  the business men of this dty tad dip*  trlct, and no doubt strong representations will be made to the Provincial  Government to protect the tntereata of  British Columbia merchants.  For over a year the Chicago, MU*  waukee ft St Paul Railway haa been  trying to secure entrance to Vancouver, and the terminal site sought was  the Kitsilano Reserve. Later negotiations took the form of agreement to  divide or share the temjnala then  with the Canadian Northern.  Another portion of the plan waa to  secure running rights over the Canadian Northern from a point near Chp.  ltwack, hut within the past few weeks  agents of the Chicago, Milwaukee *  St. Paul hare been negotiating for lit  purchase of the radial right-of-way  from Chilllwack, hut without oncosts.  Ultimately, arrangements wW probably be made with the* C. N. R. for  running rights.

SAIE START* SATURDAY, NOV. X  STANLEY t CO.  Mount Pleasant Decorators  POona fat*. 008  2317 Main Street  My Very Dear Saturday Sunset  (Continued from pafe 1)  the Roman machine must make the /turn, if there  be no other party to counteract. In many electoral  districts the Orangemen do this work. But the  whole point of the letter on "Protestant Helplessness" is to bring'out the fact that Protestantism,  cms such, has no machinery to match that of the  Romans except so far as they use tiie advantages  of the Orange Order. Now, sir, am I right or  wrong in my plain statement? Don% be afraid.  Speak up boldly. You will gain more aid for your  paper and party by talking plainly. Talk to the  point. No man of sense is influenced, more than  momentarily, by your fun-making squiblets.  These jocularities may do for the. banquet table,  'but for every day life, fin* solid business, and for  party progress they are useless and harmful. Do  you imagine you are attracting 'the "twelve or  fifteen per cent'' of Catholic votes by poking fun  at Odium? They are not fools. But they measure  up the attempt made by your jokes to catch them,  and in turn laughingly say: "The Sunset is  funny. It is trying to bring us into its party. It  is too thin, too superficial, and 'too raw' to draw  us from our straight line of duty." ''./'"���������'  No, Sir, the men who fdra the "outlook committee ',' of the' newly organized party are too  astute to let your gibing and joking win' them  from their course. Give up the attempt and settle  down to solid journalism as you can when so  minded. Once more i forgive you, for you are  trying to do something for your paper and party.  A word now in relation to Mr. H. H. Stevens,  M. P. I see you make reference to him in your  remarks about Odium. Certain letters, such as  V. S., U. S. A., and other, you use; so as to sarcasti-  cise at his expense... In this you fail. The "V. S."  used by you signifies that Mr. Stevens, in his  desire as an intelligent, enterprising young man,  seeking knowledge and experience, found a way  by which he was enabled, at the expense of Uncle  Sam, to visit China and other Oriental lands. And  surely that very experience, so obtained, has  aided and is aiding Mr. Stevens to give most  valuable help in directing the attention of all live,  public-spirited Canadians to the pressing subject  of Chinese economics in China and the Dominion  ��������� of Canada. Qis very trip and observation among  the Orientals have helped in fitting him for his  present advantageous position at Ottawa.  Surely, Mr. "Sunset Glov^" with emphasis on  the sunset, you are not jealous of the success  attained by Mr. Stevens, in spite of those who  would gladly throw him down. I see also that  you are still after the political scalp of the Honorable Attorney-General. You assert that Mr.  Bowser didn't want Mr. Stevens for a candidate.  Are you saying the thing which is true? Again,  speak up, fpr we would like to know. Did the  Jlonprable Attorney-General of British Columbia  so inform you? Did he so tell his friends? Get  to work and let the public have all the facts.  The people are curious to know the facta and  truth. This charge against the Honorable Attorney-General is old now, and has--been-roadisbyn  -you before. It is too serious to be made and  reiterated without proof.  But I would a word with you in passing. You  seem bothered concerning those "Four Stamps."  And why, pray ?" Have you another of your journalistic nightmares, or one of the "conniption  fits" you are fond of using as padding in your  paper? A stamp is intended to make an impression. You call certain men "Stamps," therefore  they must have impressed you considerably.  Perhaps you do not like to see so many stamps  tied together in a fourfold band. They are too  strong and effective to suit. Their allegiance and  loyalty bother you. And they are "Rubber" too!  Gracious! Now we .know that rubber is useful,  and one of its best qualities is its elasticity.  Would you have public men unyielding, inelastic,  and domineering? Are you in search of public  men who have only one bone in their back? If  so, you cannot find them in the four men whom  your paper so frequently, reviles and discredits.  Are they hot good, useful and able men, and  faithful servants? Whom would you use to supplant them? Of course one of your choice would  be the Editor of the '' Sunset Glow. "He would  make a very good public servant, if he were a  little more serious and devoted to the general  welfare. Still, there is hope for him. Iii fact as  soon as he is sufficiently improved he can count  on my vote. This is one solid Orange vote, but  he must be worthy, to make sere of it in the  pinch.  AN IMPORTANT MASS MEETING.  * Jewry is stirred throughout 'the world because  of the" monstrous brutalities of the Russian  Government and ruling people in high positions.  The Jews in Russia, as well as elsewhere over the  earth, keep their old-time feasts. One of these is  the Feast of Passover. And in this connection, it  lias been the habit of officials of the Russian people, under inspiration from the government, to  adopt a most despicable method of persecuting the  Jews of that great empire. The general plan is  to teach, affirm and officially say that the Hebrew'  people, in order to prepare for the ceremonies,  murder a child so as to secure blood for the  religious purposes of the Passover Feast.  The immense majority of Russians, and of the  civilized World, know this brutal charge is based  on lies and designed fabrication intended to turn  the hate of the ignorant people against the Jews,  and to some extent away from the corruption of  a corrupt officialdom.        '      , -X  The above mass meeting will by held by Christians and Jews on Sunday the 5th instant in the  Dominion Hall on Pender Street at 3:30 p. m.  His Worship the Mayor will preside. Among  the speakers 'vdUv;be.ythe:''.]i^y.\;Dr.;:'^a8f������-,' the  Jewish Rabbi, Professor Odium, and others. All  citizens of Vancouver are invited and urged to  attend for the purpose of expressing their sympathy with the cause of alleviatirig the persecutions of the suffering Jew who has been charged  with the most inhuman act possible to mankind.  Falsely has he been charged, and at this very time  the machinery of corrupt Russia is grinding out  the heart and life-blood of these persecuted  Hebrews. Surely Christendom has a heart of  loving sympathy, and ywill show it to some extent  next Sunday afternoon in the Dominion Hall at  3:30 pro.

It was decided to  recommend to the council that street  lights be burned throughout the nlgbt  trom November 15 to April 1.  The lighting bill to the municipality  at tbe present time in f 30,000 a year.  While the council are ot the opinion  tbat 200 more lights are needed In the  municipality, ln view of the fact that  the cost would be f 10,000 and require  V contract with the; lighting company  to keep in operation, it Is thought  best to deter action tn the matter  unttl the question ot a municipal lighting plant has been disposed of.  The recommendation of Water Superintendent Muliett providing for a  considerable reduction In water rates  and for a sliding scale of rates by  meter ls to be referred to the council  at its meeting on Wednesday. The  the new rates are adopted they will  |'take effect on January 1, 1915.  The water superintendent also reported' that the mains have a 60-lb.  pressure at high level.

She complimented "the order highly on  their activity and the rapid advance  they had made in the short space of  little more than one year, whicb had  elapsed since she was present at their  organization. Another matter commended by the speaker was the formation of a girls' auxiliary, which holds  Its first meeting (Friday) afternoon.  Miss McKenzie said the' order had  had been making rapid strides in Canada because it was meeting the needs  of city, town and country. The  Duchess of Connaught from her appeal to the people of Canada had  raised an investment fund of 1222,000  and the interest of this had helped  the work of the organization. The.  development of all the branches  around Vancouver, the speaker said,  is very marked. Everyone of these Is  forging ahead.   North Vancouver finds  work for several nurses. Steveston,  Burnaby and South Vancouver are  each planning tor hospitals. Among  the organisations formed by Miss McKenzie on her present Western tour  are One at Uno Park, in the Cobalt  region, and two at Manitoba, one at  ABhern, a new town north of Winnipeg and tbe other at Roblin.

Yet, not everyone realizes just how  much truth lies in this statement.  For the old rhyme puts in popular  form what Is now known scientifically of the value of fruit in the diet  We might well take counsel of this  maxim and be guided by it to make  more generous use of fruits, especially at this time of year when they are  plentiful and easily obtained.

C. fruit. Here's  just one paragraph:  "Granted that fruit ls worthy of a  prominent place in the dietary, one  is constrained to ask how cooking affects its value. Fruits when stewed  lose part of their content so lt is important to use the juice in which they  have been cooked. Tbe cellulose of  fruit is softened by cooking, and also  the pectins are converted Into jellies.  The general effect of cooking'Is to  make fruit more digestible, although  some of the fine flavor may avaporate  in the process. Unripe fruit Is difficult to digest because it contains so  much cellulose and because of. the  large amount of acid whlh Is Irritating  to the digestive tract-As fruit ripens,  this acidity tends to disappear. When  thoroughly ripe, fruit Is not difficult  to digest and the cellulose, when not  too tough, is a useful stimulant to intestinal action. For this reason fruit  such as stewed prunes is a remedy  for constipation. When fruit is overripe, dangerous and irritating acids  develop, so great care should be taken  to use only such fruit as is in perfect  condition. Fruits may be divided as  food fruits���������those containing less than  80 per cent water-****_nd flavor fruits���������  those containing a percentage greater  than that The latter class Is represented by a fruit such as the apple  which, however* is one of our most  valued fruits. We are all glad to welcome tbe rosy cheeked beauties when  the season arrives, and no one does  so more gladly than the housekeeper  who finds In them such a delldous addition to the dietary."

These men should be  brought to the bar of public opinion.  It should not matter who these men  are; if this was the truth the public  should be made aware of tbe true  facts.  These things emphasized the need  of a change of the laws governing  such matters, and he advanced such a  change. It was necessary to make  both the unions and the employers  responsible parties, responsible to  the law. Under the present Lemieux  Act there is no means given for enforcing the award of an arbitration.  He did not care much for the term  "compulsory arbitration," but something on that line should be porvided.  . Both parties must be made amenable  to the award.  Unions Not  Responsible.  The unions now are not responsible and they should be incorporated  by law, and the employers' association, which in many cases is a strong  factor in the disputes, should be converted into legal entities or not allowed to do business. This was the  subject that must receive immediate  attention from our statesmen. Doctors and lawyers and professional  men were permitted to incorporate  into legal entities, many of them  with great powers over their members and the public, and no good reason could be advanced why this right  should be denied to the workingmen  with the formation of their guilds or  crafts.  It had been charged that some of  the labor organizations were aliens  because they had affiliation in the  United States. He wanted to say  that the same applied to many of the  employers' associations, who had  headquarters in the country to the  South.���������News-Advertiser.  SOUTH VANCOUVER  Cedar Cottage.

GOLD OR IRON?  There   was   a   suggestion   a   short  "Gold is the most valuable of all  metals," you declare. Are you sore?  Gold, it is true, is the most precious  of the metals and the highest-priced,  but if we are to estimate the "value of  a thing on the basis of its usefulness,  then gold would not be by, any means  the most valuable of our mineral products.   We are told that  "Iron vessels cross the ocean;  Iron engines give them motion.  Iron pipes our gas deliver;  iron bridges span our rivers;  Iron stoves for cooking vituats;  Iron ovens, pots and kettles;  Iron horses draw our loads;  Iron rails compose pur roads;  Iron anchors hold in sands;      *  Iron rods, and bolts and bands;  Iron houses, iron walls;  Iron cannon, iron balls;  Iron axes, knives and chains;  Iron augers, saws and plains;  Iron globules in our blood,  Iron particles in our food;  Iron lightning rods on spires;  Iron telegraphic wires;  Iron hammers, nails, and screws���������  Iron in everything we use."

It was .Grant aU right He told  me some things, but needed a day or  two to get other information. While)  waiting I came over here to Elmhurst,  land found Claire. She's the kind of a  girl you can tell things to. and I wrote  out what I bad learned, and left soma;  -of my papers. Then I went back to  Lone Tree. It was dark when I got  stbere, and I rode right into Fagin and  three of bis men. They had me before  IcoubUKt a hand."  "Just wait a minute. Mortimer," %  broke In, becoming suddenly aware  tbert was a grayness in tbe eastern  sky. "I want to creep in toward the  bouse while it remains dark- You can  tell tbe rest as we go along. Tom,  take these ropes ahd tie your man up.  Make him safe, and then come along  after us."  "All right, sir. I'll fix tbe lad so  bell b# safe enough for a while."  CHAPTER XXX.  We Attain the House.  "Come on. Mortimer, and well soon  find out whst ls going on." I turned  to the prisoner. "Where are the rest  of your gang?"  "You'll find out fer yerself, irlster,"  he answered sullenly, "an' maybe  damn quick too."  'They are In the grape arbor to tbe  soutb of the house," brake in Brie.  "That was where Fagin told tbem telle quiet and wait orders."  "Then we will explore along tbt  north side, keeping the fence bettwsen  us. I've got a handful of men over  there in the orchard. If you are both  ready we'll go."  I took a look myself at Tom's rope*  tying, and found lt satisfactory. Indeed; in remembrance of my own suffering, I even loosened the strain a  little, confident the fellow could never  free himself unaided. Then the three  of us. Mortimer armed with bis late  guard's gun, crawled up over the edes  ���������C tbe bank, ran without atopptag  across the open spaoe, and crouched  in tbe shadow of the fence. It was  still dark, although a faint gray tinged  ths eastern sky-line, barely perceptible  through tbe intervening trees. The  great house, a hunured yards away.  was but a blurred outline, distinguishable by the lights shining out through  open windows. At that dlstanoe no  sound reached ua. However, If Mortimer was right, the way would be  clear for our passage along the front,  under shelter of tbe fence,' even  though a sentry was posted there, aad  we eould creep up to the walls on the  opposite side unobserved. All we  needed to do was to advance with  caution. Whispering directions Into  the ears of the others, 1 moved forward slowly, Mortimer close to my  shoulder. I could see across the top  rat! of the fence, and the open space  beyond yielded no point of oonoeal  t  _Tell me the rest of your story,"  Where did Fagin take your"  to a sand cave; we rod* * alt*  and a day to get there.-"  "Treat you aU right?"

THE COLLEGE IN THE HOME.  The worker wbo realizes. Ms need  ot education and fuller Information  can get it. He must bave it supplied  to the home, to be studied from day  to day. It must be suited to bis. conditions, and be practical. To belp him,  it must add to what he knows or can  learn for himself from hia work. So  it must lay before him the experience  of others, as well as the facts dug up  by Science. And out of the great mass  of available material, careful selection  must be made for bim, so that the  greatest amount may be learned, of  the best value, in the shortest time.  The one instrument tbat can be relied  upon to give tbe greatest service to  the greatest number is the instructive  home magaslne.  A WIDER RANGE OF READING.  A paper, which exists to provide  technical and trade education to the  people who are developing Canada  must, however, in the nature of things,  do more than that. As life is more  than meat,' so are the people of this  great new land interested in more  than the work of their hands. The  women and young folks in our homes  are concerned, with the men, in  making home life more comfortable,  more attractive, more satisfying.  In    providing    articles    we    Bhall  assume that all our readers bave a  love of the beautiful, and that they  desire to realise it more in home surroundings and In daily life, and  thought. There will be profit in  studying beautiful designs. Interior  decorations and furnishings are of  course interesting to those to whom  their home is their city in one.  Gardening is an art as well as a science, and to many it is a delightful  hobby. None can, indeed, yield more  of happiness both to oneself and to  the rest of the family. .The garden of .  the mind and that of the heart shall  be cultivated by the stories and the  little histories and the other things  we expect to publish.  "THE GREATEST GOOD OF THE  GREATEST NUMBER."  Our men and women have an interest in public affairs which might be  intensified, and which should be fed  with fuller information. The fathers  and mothers of the Canadian people  of the next generation cannot know  too well the story of -their country,  cannot watch too carefully the conduct of governments. The difficulties  of governing and legislating for a  nation spread over four thousand miles  are intensified by the variety of nationalities and sectional interests  which exist.   The sympathetic appre  ciation of these difficulties and the  criticism of the government's shortcomings go properly together. Exclusive consideration of self or one's  class ls contrary to the spirit of citizenship, and is dangerous when it ls  the habit of many in the nation. There  is but one way to be -fair. It is to  understand. The people of the various  classes must get acquainted with each  other.  THE   NATIONAL  SPIRIT.  The first duty of the citizen and the  father of citizens is to know his country, all of it,, as well as he can. Thinking people will study ln fairness the  conditions prevailing in other parts'  than those with which they are familiar. They will seek to .balance evenly  the interests of all when they set out  to promote their own. At bottom, we  all need to know the facts more fully,  and to listen less impressionably to  the politicians that pervade our  bounds.  To give the facts as fully as we can,  and to open our columns to the  opinions of all sides of disputed questions, is the policy we shall follow in  such matters. We cannot undertake  to indorse the views expressed by  every writer. Neither shall we state  partial or one-sided arguments. The  Canadian   Countryman   will   be   the  blackboard on which everyone may  chalk up his ideas���������lf only he writes  a good enough band to please the  audience! In such matters the rules  of debate shall be Straight Argument,  Fair Play and Good Feeling. The big  thing is, to dig out the Truth.  OUR NEW NEIGHBORS.  We shall try to make Tbe Countryman especially Interesting and useful  to those who bave not been long  enough in Canada to understand very  well just what sort of a country this  is, or how to make the most of their  work here. We extend a warm welcome to these additions to our big  family, and offer tbem our. best.  THE  NEW  MORAL8  IN  BUSINESS.  One of the most striking features of  modern business has been the extent  to which we are dependent upon advertising for information upon the  articles and services we buy. We sell  our wheat, our bacon, our wool, to  people we have never seen, and they  trust to get good quality when they  know where the goods come from.  Similarly we buy from factories often  thousands of miles away, and the men  who make our shoes, our clothes, our  mowers and engines do not know us  from the heathen Chinee.  Yet they talk to us about their  goods. They explain their good points,  and give reasons for discrimination  between theirs and others; reasons  which we consider carefully when we  buy. When we are sufficiently convinced by this talk of quality and service by the advertisements, the. retailer or agent.haa a hard time of it if  he tries to change our views. But  sometimes in the past, and occasionally even ye.t, Ve'are fooled by false  statements or too plausible boasting.  There are useful things and useless  things advertised. ' There are occasionally exaggerated claims to merit  made for even the best goods. The  reader must have confidence in advertising on the whole, or he cannot get  along. Advertising should be cleaned  ef that sort which misleads, which  injures the public in "morals, health  or pocketbook," as one magazine has  expressed it. We pledge ourselves to  do our utmost to keep our pages  clean of all such questionable advertising.���������The Publishers of "The Canadian Countryman."  P. S.���������In the first issue of our  magazine (our special British Columbia issue, by the way) begins our new  serial story, "Gaff Linkum," hy that  prince of Canadian novelists, Archie  McKlshine.
