Speakers at Borden's Picnic Give That Impression to the Audience. Trenton, June climax of Hon. R. L. Borden's .Ontario tour was reached here when five thou- sand people iiUeutleu a combined pic- nic of the counties of Hastings, Prince Edward and Northumberland. A sensational feature was the in- troduction of applause given Sir Mac- Kenzie Bowell, who appeared to refer pointedly to Hon. G. Foster, in con- gratulating Mr. Borden upon having such a follower r.s Judge "whose public and private acts are prompted by the highest ideals. He will be loyal to his leader and to his principle. The Conservative party gains by his election." J. W. M. P. P., added that when Mr. Borden was called noon to form a cabinet it should contain no one with a tainted record. "The Con servative party cannot afford to carry any one who has used time or money to his own advantage that owed to business in which he was employed.

THE sudden leap of Redcliff into the limelight is one of the remarkable things of a remarkable country. Nature provided sn ideal site with mar- velous physical conditions at the eastern end of a district which had in the past two years the largest influx of immigration of any point in Canada. Be- fore even the railway and the surrounding country had begun to take notice of Redcliff, industries had sprung up there, giving employment to over 200 laborers. The secret of it all Gas; natural gas means heat, power, light and fuel at practically no cost. The gas found in this region is shown by test to be the purest ever discovered anywhere, having over 1100 British Thermal Heat units as compared with 600 for the average illuminating gas, and it affords unlimited power at a cost scarcely worth calculating. It 'means to the manufacturer the most perfect fuel with practically no expense -or skilled labor anyway.
