Kootenay Valley Nurseries MIRROR LAKE BRITISH COLUMBIA SHE WAS A CHAMELEON COW; WHEN LOST TURNED BLACK .Former Yellow Jersey Wanders Off and Animal of Another Color is Found in a Neighbor's Herd. Green application of lamp black had so changed .the color of a yellow cow belonging to Frank G. Lauer, proprietor of- the Sorrel Horse Hotel, near here, that it took two weeks .before the owner and two constables empowered with search warrants could locate and identify the animal under most peculiar circum- stances. Lauer's blooded Jersey cow had wandered from iher moorings several ago and despite all efforts to find her no trace of the missing ani- mal could be found.. A herd of five cows on the Kappen- stein farm close :by where the tenant is Percy Bracey, numbered six on clear days, and only five on rainy ones This aroused suspicion, and, accom- panied !by Constable John Bitting, of Red Hill, the owner of the lost cow examined the strange animal, for whose presence Mr. Bracey could tnot account After a rigid examination Mr. Lauer gave it "She has .the size, the missing tooth and one hoof is clipped; but my cow a yellow, color." Just then the constable stroked the the. color of, 'both Ms palm and the cow's coat of hair changed slightly, and after repealing fche operation with increased pressure a bright yellow streak was revealed and the yellow cow was found and taken home. Mr. Bracey's word was accepted and no suit was brought against the own- er of the herd.

I G- TINNING Rd., N. Ward Stirling H. Roach, Acting Manager. Grassy W. Balllle, Manager. (Special correspondence of the Toronto Star) Prince Albert, Aug. is about Fred Pardee. He has as much responsibility as any man in Canada just more. Grits would say Tories would say "less." At all events it is a very heavy re- sponsibility. It is a different kind to that which is borne by any other Can- adian. 'If he failed in it there would be trouble. The country would be in trouble. The Liberal party would be in .trouble, and Pardee would foe in trouble. It isn't money, and it isn't the good name of his party nor anything con- cerning its deeds or its promises. It is the leader of the Liberal party, the cnief of the government, and in short man Laurier." If anything happened Laurier it will he .because Fred Par-dee could not help it, and, as a matter of fact, if Pardee could not help it, nobody could. He does not carry a. gun, Pardee. It is not that sort of protection that he maintains over the Prime Minister. He is not guarding him against anar- chists, 'because there seem to ibe no anarchists in the western country; the nearest approach to that sort of menace is the Grain Growers' Asso- ciations and they don't use bombs or guns. Their missiles are petitions which begin-with "we your petitioners respectfully It is against these sometimes Uo ard- uous gentlemen and against one other kind of assassin thac Pardee guards the Premier. The other kind are the assassins of unadul- terated kindness. Pardee would never admit that they are assassins, but they are, nevertheless. They and the grain growers and an occasional local master of ceremonies, who gets a bit confused, are the chief menaces to Fred Pardee's charge. Premier's Arduous Duties For when a man of sixty-eight years matter how vigorous he may he out to travel ten thousand miles in the heat, of summer, and make speeches to thousands of people, and listen te scores of civic addresses and grain growers' petitions, it is a large undertaking. Nobody needs to be told what it would mean if the Premier's health were -injured toy it. Nobody needs to be reminded that great lead- ers are not found in a moment, and that the' head of a government is not disturbed without disturbing the whole national system. But weeks before Sir Wilfrid set out on his two months' tour of the West, the old wiseacres of the party shook their heads as they read ove'r the itinerary and counted the spaeches. "It'll -be an awful strain on they muttered, and when they saw that mere youngster in poli- chief government whip Par- wagged their heads at him a warning: that he must not fail in the trust they and the whole Lib- eral party have put in him. In the fisst place Pardee" and Hon George Graham figured out the trip They made it so that the Premier would touch pretty nearly every place of importance in that country which lies -between the lakes and -the moun tains. There were many places tha called themselves or importance hut that weren't. While Pardee was work ing it out 'the respective members o parliament for the various Western constituencies wrote letter after letter trying to get the Premier to spend as much time in their respective ridings as possible. These were Pardee's first trial. He haggled with them ove: the very minutes which tie .Premie: could spend there. He pointed ou how impossible it was for the Premier to do more than make a short speech from the back of the train, or spend thirty-seven and a half minutes in such-and-such a town. Sometimes.Par dee did not win out in the haggling and was forced to admit that such-and such an honorable member was en titled to, say, one whole day's use o Whereupo" that mem ber would go away feeling as proud and as happy as though he had Jus: sold four good coiner lots or H thresh ing machine. Giving Him a Good Next thing tor "Fardee to do was t> see that they didn't kill tha Premie in that one day, or whatever the was. "Well, mentions the honor able member who has bagged his lead er for a whole day, "we'd just like t give him a civic address of welcom at six in the morning. Then a motor drive at six-thirty. Then a reception n the city hall. Then take him to ee our new public school, then in- pect the-fire 'brigade, then have lunch with the Board of Trade. Then re- eive a two-hour delegation of grain growers. Then attend a lawn -social t my wife's house and meet -the lad- es of the church. Then have another uto ride out to see Bill Smith's new asoline plough. Then attend a han- uet by the Liberal Association, and give us a fiftyrminute speech, and a ttle reception at the evening meet- ng." says Fred Pardee, trying to ook unconcerned, "but I'm afraid ou will have to let him off some of hose things." And with infinite tact e cuts the proposed program down o something that will not utterly ex- aust the Premier. For handshaking s exhausting. Breathing fetid air is unhealthy. Riding in motors is tir- ng, and above all, the strain of
