Defeated rivals unanimously and en- viously observed that the handsomest U reman on the ro.-ul had conquered the most outrageous little coquette be- tween New York and Buffalo. As a matter of fact, she had loved him from the start: the others served as thorns with which she. delightedly pricked his heart into subjection. The young husband settled down, re- nounced all of his undesirable habits and became a new man with such sur- prising inddennestf that his friends msrrriad aod-derided. A year of happiness followed. He grew accus- tomed to her frivolous ways, over- looked her merry whimsicalities and gave her tbe -full length of a free as be called it He was tented and consequently careless.

Nevertheless be could not make up bis mind to go back and resume the life of torture ber jealousy had begotten.

It cannot be neutral. In either 'mighty, our birth; going with us through life, clinging to us in death, and reaching into the, .eternal world. .The specific influences of husband and wife, of parent and child, of brother and sis- ter, of teacher and pupil united and harmoniously blended, ..constitute the home influence. Like the calm, deep stream, it moves on in silent but over- whelming power. It strikes its roots deep into the human heart, and, spreads its branches wide over our whole being. Like the lily that brav- es the tempest, and "the Alpine flow- :r that leans its cheek on the bosom .of eternal it is exerted amid the wildest storms of life and breathes a softening spell in our bosom when a heartless-world-is freezing up-the fountain of sympathy and It hdldi theJempire of the heart and rul- es the life. OUT habits, too, are formed under the moulding power "of home. The "tender twig" is there bent, the spirit shaped, principles implanted, and the. whole character is formed until it becomes a habit. The gray-haired father who walks in the second infancy, feels the traces of his home in his spirit, desires and habits. The most illus- trious statesmen and eloquent min- isters owe their greatness .to the fos, tering influences of home.

'After singing "AIL Hail the Power of Jesus' and prayer, Mr. Gor- don-gave a short talk asjan introduc- tion to the study; of the Book of Acts He pointed but that the old testament is the vehicle of Divine, revelation, arid, that, just'as a wise, teacher-leads his -pupils. :to more advanced know- ledge, so God gave the Jewish peo- ple more revelation of himself as they were able to understand it.-. In dealing, -with; tiie Book of Acts, he; contrasted style with that of Luke, and gave- several reasons for believing that Luke from the data given him by''eye-witnesses of. the. events, wrote both books. In these writings Luke showed how the gospel had grown from the be- till ii reached Eome. There were -many questions and much discussion as the talk proceed- ed, which helped to make the meet- ing interesting. Miss Tilney reported that Miss Jessie Macdonald had consented "to be chairman of the social committee a-nd the meeting unanimously ap. pointed her as Miss Tilney's succes- sor. The meeting-closed with the bene- diction. The next meeting promises to he of more than usual interest. Miss.

The railway companies are offering liberal terms to delegates, or the return journey for a single fare plus one-third; 100 or more, the return journey for single fare. -It is essential that intending delegates should purchase a single fare ticket and also procure a standard conven- -ion certificate from the station agent before boarding the train. Failing to do this they will 'be unable to bene- fit by the reduced rates. Delegates expecting hospitality are -equested io send in their names to he S. Young Imperial Bank, Edmonton, at the earliest pos- iblfi date. It is hoped that the conference will >rdve itself a blessing to the Brother- hood in this Western Country, and be great benefit to the work that is Christ's work, and so should, be un-J dertaken by all men willingly and, joyfully.

In Washington, IMPROVED FRUIT LAND bring, from S500 to per acre. v We call better lands unimproved at to per acre, according to location. You make good jiving pay for the planting and cultivating of your orchard, by growing garden truck between the trees. OR You can have your land improved to a six-year old fruit bearing or- chard, for to per acre. We have experienced orchardists to do work and charge per acre for which includes clearing, cultivating, supplying and planting two-year old trees (your selection) and the subsequent care of same for four years. Do these prices appear high to you? An Apple Orchard in full bearing, yields from 600 to boxes per acre, and nets the grower from to per box, hence if fruit land will yield a profit ef even per acre, thit profit is equal to ten per cent, on or ONE HUN- DRED AND SIXTY PER CENT, on the actual cost price. How many of the best farms, in other countries are netting the own- ers su-.h profits annually en the price tKey actually paid fer the land? We invite comparisons. Do little figuring for yourself. The climate ef THE ARROW LAKE DISTRICT is admirably adapted to the growth of vegetation. The win- ters are so short and mild, that semi- tropical fruits, figs for example, can be successfully grown. The soils of this valley are a com- bination of volcanic ash, sand from the disintegration of igneous rocks, silt from old lake beds, and humus from decay of vegetation. They comprise all the elements necessary to plant life, being from two to three hundred feet in depth, and are of inexhaustible fertility. says tnY New York Wail Street Journal, "are stubborn things and they won't down." .British Co- lumbia possesses lumber resources, greater than all the states of the Union, East of the Rocky Mountains. British Columbia is moreover now recognized as the orchard of the Em. pire. It has the soil, the climate and it wiil have the people. NOTE.

They will never be lower and will certainly be higher in a .very short time. We do not claim to have the only Fruit in British Columbia, but what we wish to explain, That our lands were personally se- lected by two old residents of the country, who understood conditions necessary for profitable fruit culture, and who were at the time fa- miliar with the climate and soil con- ditions of the country.. That, at the same time our lands were selected they had practically the choice of the country. That our lands were chosen for the purpose of fruit-growing, and was In their opinion, the best obtainable. That due consideration was given; to sections requiring irrigation and those said Tibt to; require It That our lands were chosen, with a. view to irrigation, should it be found necessary, and can be irrigated at a very small expense. That that time it has been satisfactorily demonstrated rigation is not required. That transportation facilities and conveniencesto market were over- looked. That the choosing of land in small isolated tracts where schools and churches could not be maintained, was carefully avoided. That we believe, there are no bet- ter fruit lands in British Columbia, than we are offering'at the present market price. We are not selling on COMMIS- SION. We own our lands and are. interested in satisfying our customers. Write us for full particulars and .literature. The ARROW LAKE ORCHARDS LETHBRIDGE AIxBERTA 'i.
