The fortieth annual report of the 
British Columbia hospital for the men- 
tally afflicied, which was laid on the 
table of parliament a few days ago by 
Hon. L>r. Young, is more than usually 
Interesting as an official publication. It 
not only presents the customary and 
very comprehensive array of facts and 
figures iiKlicattve of the extent and na- 
ture of the institutional activities for 
the year under review, but also in a 
manner takes the public into close con- 
fidence. It affords at least a super- 
flciMl realization of the Intricate and 
rx.;ci>ti.>nijlly tiiorough practice In the 
Lreatmcnt of each inaividuai case, By"'»

jorlty of readers as dry-as-dust mat-

Impression, and all who take an Inter-

suffering from a first attack. fifty 
from a second, and eleven from a third.

The parents have rrcrived no dlrert

however, a telegram from their son. 
Ben Mllbrath, in Gary, Ind.. saying his 
atint, Mrs. Helena Dlckmoyer. liad re- 
c»ived a postcard dated Portland, Ore., 
from the girl. The postcard read: 
"Married Friday. Well and happy. On 
honeymoon trip to Europe." 

The parents fear that Cooper, find- 
ing himself closely pursued, will aban- 
don their daughter and leave her penni- 
less In Canada. Their forebodings arc 
are .mrrngthened by inelr daughter's 
evident inipllcit confidence In Cooper. 

It developed today that the marriage 
Icense, which Cooper was believed to 
have forged, had been obtained in the 
customary manner at tbe county clerk's

Cooper's criminal career became known. 

Count von Aehrenthal had been sufter 
In*. '-- "^e last month from leucocy- 
te i disease characterized by pro- 
found changes In the blood and Internal 
organs, and no hopes were entertained 
for his recovery. 

He was born In 1854. He was 23 
years old when he was appointed provin- 
cial attache in Paris. Later he was at- 
tached to the embassy In St. Peters- 
burg. After serving in th« foreign of- 
fice m Vienna for five years from 1SS3 
he was again sent to St. Petersburg, and 
in ISSZ received the title of minister. 
He served also as minister to Rou- 
mania, and then was appointed ambas- 
sador to Russia. He had been foreign 
minister for Austria-Hungary since O*

The change in the ministry Is likely 
to have an important effect on the 
monarchy's position abroad. The new 
minister Is highly esteemed at «!. Pet- 
ersburg, and his assumption of the 
portfolio of foreign affairs probably 
will result in improving the Austo- 
Russlan relationship. It Is also under-

ROME, Feb. 17— The death of Count

an aviation meet at the old Emery-

10 the ground. One after another the 
birlanes were cauKht by the wind, which 
was broken into combatting currents by 
tb„ islands -of San Francisco hay and 
the hills and mountains that surround 
It. Before the aviatorc could pitch their 
planes to meet one burst of the half 
gale another, from a different direction, 
would upset t|lr entire equilibrium. 
Fainham Fish, ihe youngest aviator at 
the meet, bpcame lost In the fou, and it 
was feared he had fallen Into th« swift 
tide, which races past the fe<leral mlll- 
lary prison on Alcatrar. Island, but he 
fliiaily landed. 

Hoff was trying out a new machine 
when he met misfortune. As he flew at

The Canadians were in the van 
thnroKt'out the dstU at l^iiardebers. tne 
British Columbians having the .end or 
the line nearest the e^iemy. It was on 
the morning of the 26th that the surren- 
der took place. The plan was carefully 
conceived. At e given hour, between 
midnight and i o'clock in the morning, 
the whole regiment was to advance from 
the forward trenches under cover of the 
darkness. The front rank was to carry 
entrenching tools with their rllles slung 
and to advance, keeping in touch at 
arnVs length. The second rank armed 
with' riiles only was to follow In the 
seme manner with an Interval of teti 
naces. Absolute fllence was to be m«in* 
tained and the first discharge froni the 
eneiV.ys lines both rank- w-re to faU 
nat on their faces without return Ins 
nre The Gordon Highlanders In tlie 
nank trenches on one side, and tlie com- 
pany of Canadians across the jl^er os 
ih« other flank were to ans>-cr the Boer 
tire and thus cover the silent advance. 
The Shropsblre regiment, occupying the 
rear trenches were to act as support. A 
detncljment or l"f roya^ vn^.-.-i--- 
to advance at the same time under cover 
of the high river banks.

Garrard and Pott* had sold to McNair

plaintiffs had Mr. Oarrbrd arrested un-

When it !■ considered that provlom 
to last night, the local feminine bnskot- 
ballers had played excluaively behind 
closed doors, ohe might think that they 
would perhaps be shy and nBr\ou«. But 
on the contrary, they came out from 
their club room, took the floor like 
veterans, gatliered for their school yell, 
which although It showed some weak- 
ness in voices, was plainly audible, and 
dug into the game as though the cause 
of Mrs. was really* and 
truly behind them. 

l-'or the visitors Miss Cocking, who 
iiUiiough hurt la^; bpckss^^JT»at=h^r^^

centre, and scored no less than seven 
points. Her work was jjood throughout.

and hardly gave her opponent a: chance 
to stretch herself.

Something Unique in 
Peek, Frean*s Biscuits 

.Next Thursday night, February 22, 
the Drill liall will be the scene of one 
of the best series of Inter-clty boxing 
bouts that the fans of this city have 
had the pleasure of witnessing In many 
a day. In fact It has been several i 
years since American lighters have in- 

and each and every bout— there are at 
least nine counting the wrestling- 
promises to provide something worth 
seeing in the ttstic line and all kinds of 
Iceen interest. 

Tlie seat sale has opened and it 
looks as though there will be several 
thousand at the big meet. A special 
section of the building has been set 
off for ladies. No smoking will be per- 
mitted and Btrlct check will be kept 
upon the crowd, if any unneces.sary 
language arises. Tickets can be had 
at Dean & Hiscocks; corner Broad and 
Vatcs sireetn: W. IT. Davles, 641 Fort 
street, and .Mr. Harry Skuce at the 
James Bay chibhonse. The ringside 
seats are selling at a surprising clip. 

Should a failure occur tlnan.ially 
'in this coming tournament it will 
likelv cause a break in the fight game 
in this city, as the undertaking of 
bringing the visitors here is a big one. 
It requires support and suppoi-l i; 
must have if there is to be any m^m 
of them.

One Defeat Did Not Worry

14 Points to Nil 

rsauaiiiuu ^ "-V 


Victoria's stellar soccer organization 
had lltt'e tUfflculty in defeating the 
visiting ^Nunaimo City team at the 
Royal At-ilouc park yesterday after- 
noon by a score of 4 goals to 1, and 
there was not a time during the entire 
"contest that the up-islanders looiicd 
anv way dangerous. The one goal 
scored by the visitors came as the re- 
sult of a penal'y in me last minute of 
play. OutsHo ot that Nanaimo had 
but few shots at the loo.^. nets and 
Goalkeeper Horn might have been 
elsewhere, than for uU the work he 
id during the match. 
Throughout Victoria liud the better 
y the play, showing better defence 
Vork, combination and steady foot- 
work It was no tieid for football— 
the Hoyal Athletic— but despite the 
fact, the strength oC the locals was 
apparent from the outset. The visi- 
tors might have made a bett.^ show- 
ing had they been able to hold their 
passes among tnomsclves, but in this 
particular, they showed some poor 
judgment. The work of Goalkeeper 
AValkcr was alone the outstanding fea- 
ture of anotherwise moderate team. 
Walker was called upon many times, 
in fact dozen-s of times, and while not 
steady in "H hi.'s saves, played the 
game The shots scored against him, 
the whole four," were far to fast for 
him or any "iher goalkeeper to han- 

whVre N^YmlmTlrngnt lmv« scorsd.J 
each time the shot went wide. There 
was only one truly good shot sent at 
Horn, which wa§ In the second half 
"nd which he handled well. The right 
wing player of the visitors kicked sev- 
eral shot« over, or to the side of the 

Pickeriag and Tbowaa

match. In the flnal period, th* visiting 
captain. Ml^s Gladys Cocking, was 
rather badly Injured by twisting her 
side in a fall, and retired from the

I places over the ground and it was 
easy to see that accurate play was 
0U-. of the question. Oak Bay started 
with cinly fourteen men and lost an- 
other at half time so that they had 
none of the best of the luck. In the 
first fifteen minutes they compelled 
tin ir opponents to touch down three 
times in self defence. Nason In a 
short nin made some ground but hla 
pass out to the right went forward. 
Shires on the other side was dribbling 
neatly again and again. Oak Bay were 
then forced to touch down and direct- 
ly after a Law Student was held up 
over their line and n fifteen yards^ 
scrum' resulted. A cross kick by the 
Students threatened their line again, 
hut Nason relieved by a good kick 
which found touch. At this point there 
w.iS a good deal of talking which the 
referee had to check. Clarke, tho Oak 
Bay back was saving and kicking In a 
very safe manner ana Vincent by an 
excellent kick checked the Students' 
attack and the first tweniy-flve min- 
utes ended with no score. 

On resuming It wao noticed that 
George Dickson was absent and it was 
soon apparent that the odda were too 
great in favor of th^ Studenta. Galli- 
her, who had come up from back to 
three-quarter, took a good pasa and 
running atrongly through three or four 
men touched down behind the poata 
and Stewart kicked a goal. The Stu- 
dents again attacked and a bad caae 
of Interference with a man who had 
punted over the three-duartar's head 
must be recorded against an Oak Bay 
man: it passed unnoticed, however, 
and the next lijcldent wa« a good save 
by Ogdcn who also found touch well 
up the line. Qalllher took a good paaa 
but waa grassed promptly. 
SUrtla aootM 

The next minute, after some excel- 
ent passing Martin got over on the 
lefts MoTftqn was, a'l the time doing 
,Btodt"*ofl«-ftt half ana MllUgan among 
'the forwards. 'A loose rush by three 
of tho Students, Including Talbot, 
again to«,k the ball over the Oak Bay 
lino and o try resulted. Clarke was 
doing all he knew at full back and had 
to touch down once more In self de- 
fence. The Stud^ts' three- auarters 
again combined and .obtained another 
try and the >{0i' e endod In the Stu- 
dents' f'^vrtr bv one goal and three 
tries to nothln*. The teams were as

As the result ot yesterday's Morley 
cup matches, Garrlswn defeating the 
Wests, 2 goals to 1 and Sam LorTmer's 
eleven trimming the Foresters. 1 goal 
to nil, three teams are now tied lor 
the first position in the raco for the 
championship and ultimately the 
right to play for the MoBrlde Shield, 
emblematic of the iBritish Columbia 
amateur football championship. Yes- 
terday was for from being a day for 
good football, but nevertheless two 
games were played. The Y. M. C. A.- 
Sons of England match was cancelled 
by Referee Lorimcr, declared the 
North Ward park unfit to play upon, 
ilthoush t*^** 'wr> teams were ready to 

The Garrison fought a hard game 
with the Wests and upheld their rec- 
ord of never being defeated on their 
home ground.s. The Wests had equally 
as much of the play and showed good I 
all-round form. Gale scored both the 
goals for the soldiers and T3ob Whyte 
connected for the Wests from a cor- 
ner kick. It was anybody's game until 
the call of time and both teams had 
plenty of chances to swing the game 
one way or the other, the honor, how- 
ever, falling to the city champions. 

The James Bay team looks like a 
formidable contender In the race this 
season and won a close victory ovei 
the Foresters yesterday at Beacon Hill 
one goal to nil. Totty scnrep the only- 
goal of the game in the first half, 
which was for the most part in favor 
of the Bays. In the closing period, the

on which Is printed his name and some 
expression fif good will. These paate- 
board.s are left at the homes where 
vLslls arc paid. 

Splendid Affaire 

In former years the cards were .splen- 
did affoiirs that measured anywhere 
from postcard sixc to sheets of red 
paper two or three feet square, which 
were rolled and tied with colored string. 
Whenever a caller wished to present a 
card he was compelled to undo the roll, 
sort out the sheet he wished to leave 
and tic up the others. But modern Idea.s 
havo affected even the calling card and 
now the white man's size 1« good 
enough for the yellow man. AH the 
Inscriptions, however, are In Cliinese 
Idcagraphs and no visitor would take 
the chance of censure that would follow 
the presentation of a card printed In 
English characters. 

Every house Is open to relatives, 
friends and mere nodding acquaintances. 
The visitors are warmly greeted and 
offered food and tea in exchange for 
the gifts they bring. The New Yftjir 
sweetmeats arc set forth on tea woofl 
tables in the inoat vAlualile and precious 
chlnaware that the family can afford. 
There are cimdles for the delight of the 
little boys who accompany their fathers 
on the visiting round; fruit, melon seedi, 
Chinese wines and fancy teas for the

T»kM ma «•• 

Tha visitor U itben presented vith » 
cup of tea, the persona offorlnj the 
bevarac*' bains required to hold it 
In both hands in accordance with an 
immemorial Chinese custom. A tray 
containlrfT candy, preserves and melon 
seeds, the soeda placed in a dish In 
tho centre oJ the oalTcr, is th«n plnn«d 
before tha guest. Tha candy and 
in«lo.n Be«ds signify gold dust and th-e 
more a caller eats the more gold and 
gems he will have during the ensuing 
year. While the ceremony is going on 
tha elders converse about the weather, 
irisb each other a successful and pros- 
perous new year with plenty of good 
luck land express the hops that they 
may be succesjiful In drawing the 
•■eight" and "nine" spots In the Chinese 
lottery. The usual greeting to those 
who have relatives at home in China 
Is that they may have such prosperity 
in their business" during tne year thai 
they will be enabled to return home for 
a vLslt. 

While this is going on the children 
are wiatchlng the visitor furtively. They 
prunpeci him ineiiUtUy lii anttCipS''-'''" 
of the amount of leeshee or luck money 
that he may leave ihem. CouCcalcu 
somewhere in the clothing of the caller 
are a number of little red packages 
In which gold and silver are wrapped. 
J5ftnh of th« little ones receives a lee- 
«h(>e package and it may contain any 
coin from a quarter to |5, according 
to th« wealth and Influence of the 
haad of the liouse. Sojne of the chil- 
dren of the wealthiest parents In the 
quarter receive $300 or |A00 from visi- 
tors desirous of showing their regard 
for the family. And the children are 
not niggardly with their leeshee but 
spend It royally on clothing, candy 
and In entertainment of their com- 

Tha Bachelor's ?art 
When the call la concluded the visi- 
tor iarises and wiaUes his hosts their 
heart's desire during the year. Ho 
•then begins backing out, bowing and 
smiling, while the household escort 
him to the door, wishing him long life 
and happy returns of the Sun Nln 
Heason. As he goes, the caller leaves 
a new year's card and receives several 
In return. During the last few diaya 
of the old year many families cook 
pastries such as usually are to be 
found only In China. These are sent 
to the homes of bachelors land those 
who have no relations in the new 
world with pictures or mottoes re- 
calling ancient honme customs. The 
purpose is to vecall to tho wHnderer 
the happy days he enjoyed In his home 
during tho Sun Xln and the exile Is 
supposed to return thanks and say that 
ths cooking Is "i'A-ir llk» mother used 
to make." 

The women customiarlly do not pay 
vl.«ilts until the second day of the Sun 
Nln. The wife satUes forth accom- 
panied by her girls who be^r Chinese ^ 
lilies, apples and oranges as gifts. The j 
tea and cakes are served, felicitations j 
oxlended Jind the presents are left with j 
the hostess. The caller however re- 
ceives lilies, apples and oranges in re- 
turn, and so when the day of visiting j 
!9 over a thrifty Chinese woman should ! 
have as many presents as she gave. 

After the first three or four days of , 
celebration Chinatown begins to take 
on again Its wonted appearance. The I 
restaurants open and are husy day and | 
night catering to the demands of those j 
who have 'arranged for dinner parties j 
to their friends. I 

Parades are held In the lighted '. 
streets, the lanterns helng lit only dur- 
Ing the Sun Nln period. Strings of 
tirecrackers •wtafc 'ormsr.y cTip-o-c- .n ; 
front of every house to drive away the j 
devils of bad luck and priests held j 
their ceremonies of prayer and chant- I 
Ing at the street corners, but the ex- ] 
plosion of firecrackers Is permitted only ' 
on few occasions. Perhaps some bene- 
volent association will borrow the 
-rcat lien that f<?»ds on greens iand 
money for the purpose of collecting 
funds for charities and will accompany 
the beast through the streets beating 
gongs and drums. 

Tha T%t*n K«w Taar 
The pagan celebrates his New Year 
even more strictly than the ChrlsUan 
Chinese. In every home where Con- 
fucius Is honored more than Christ 
tapers and ligiits In peanut oU arc kept 
burning. lno.«n««> sUcks send up their 
lazy smoke fumes 'to the god of luck, 
food Is laid on the altars and prayers 
are hung before the Joss petitioning for 
Tils favor. Tho lists of ancestors of 
the fsumily, the long and the aoclety 
are conned and each is petitioned to 
grant protection, «.ftecUon, money, fond 
and itriumph over enemies for the next 
12 anoona. 

Quarrels during the Sun N!n are con- 
sidered sacrilegious and truces are en- 
tered upon between warring tongs or 
business rivals. 

Nothing is more modem than the 
modern Chinese. He is tho product 
of fused clvilizationsr that never have 
agreed In the past and never will i" 
the future. He is more or less of a 
hybrid ■nfflclent unto himself in tha 
land of his adoption, but mistrusted at 
home and in a very small minority 
when dieeklng to put forth Improve- 
ments and innovations that ha has 
.learned from his western teachers. Ho 
Is compelled to go slowly at home, for 
fear of arousing tha people to resent- 
ment against reforms and thus cause 
them in anger to revert ^to their 
allegiance td an emperor. He has had 
a difficult fight on hand with the older 
Chinaaa. who still cling to the loved 
custom* and ceremonies of their 
f^thcra, but he is young and growing 
and the alders are dying off. Tat the 
Toung China are •hrewd and aw the 
nacaBsity of proceeding slowly. Prob 
ably the moat radical action they have 
taken haa baen tha abolition of the old 
Cblnefie New Tear, and the leaders 
know that a real test will come when 
tne naxt tyvVi *«>•» «»■ wii«.~..>"i-i-— --=■-»

whether the 300,000,000 of Chines© in

Chtneaa in America and Europa in ob

The British bark Gulf Hlrftam. which 
left GlasKovv on .^prll 2!Kli with a cargo 
of fire brkk. sewer pipe. etc.. consigned 
to l-Jvans, Colciuan & Kvans, of thi- city, 
is now unlnsurnble, and has been posted 
foi enquiry at Uloyds. This in Uie 
t.Mual step, which precedes the po-stiug: 
or a vea»el a.s misning. and Indicates 
tlal very slim hope l.s entertained that 
♦ ho vcBsel l.s still afloat. The bark Sol- 
WU.V. recently posted as missing, swell- 
cl the total of .satllns ve.sscls lost while 
carrying from Newcastle to South Am- 
erica tv eleven In as many years. 

The Norwegian bark .Solway. which 
nailed away from Newcastle, Australia, 
last June bound for Julnln on the west 
coast of .South America, has disappear- 
ed just as many another equally fine 
vtBsel has done, and no doubt will do 
.'I gain. 

What tjltfipo lier end took will be 
Bhrouded in the usual lmpenetrablf> mys- 
tery atta.ched to such happenings for 
a;l lime, no doubt.. After the first sen- 
satlen has pawed oyer ^Ije vessel's name 
will po Kradually from mind. imJens 
some «lgnal occv^Jon arise- thpt n-.o^a- 
.nltatea rei-ords hclndr brouKht-to use for 
seme purpoBO. 

*riicre is one thing, however. In con- 
nect lo.l With the vessel's end that 

Capt. <itto Sverdrup, master ot Ex- 
plorer Fridtjof Nanscn'a Fram, w'hlch 
he brought safely' through the Arctic 
ice pack after the explorer abandoned 
the ship for a dash toward the pole, is 
in Seattle to outfit for whaling In 
Alaskan waters. Ho said: "I expect 
to build two vessels, each 105 feet long, 
with 400-hor.>5e-power engines. I hope 
to sail ill May. I spent a short time 
whaling in Alaskan waters last year. 
I have arranged to secure two trained 
gunners who are now on their way 
from Norway to join me. I have done 
soi-ne considerable whaling off Green- 
land. I believe that Alaskan walei'a 
contain the linest fishing grounds In 
the world." 

The Nansen expedition, with which 
Capt. Sverdrup went as commander 
of the Fram, was based upon Dr. Nan- 
sen's theory that the drift of ice noes 
carries them from Siberia to Green- 
land directly across tne polar njaom: 
Dr. Nansen expected by designing a 
iihip which would withstand ice pres- 
sure to lodge his company in the Ice 
and drift a-cross the North pole or 
close to the pole with the Ice pack. 

His theory was proved correct. He 
.failed of the pole, but reached 86 de- 
grees 14 minutes, north latittide. 

The programme was carried out as 
agreed. On March 4, 1895, the Fram 
WAS fast in the ice at 83 degrees 50 
minutes, north latitude. Dr. Nansen 
determined to explore the unknown 
Arctic regions beyono. "nd, with Lieut. 
Johanscn, aet out on an exi->€dltlon 
over the Ice hy dog team. Capt. Hver- 
drup was left to bring the expedition 
to civilization. 

Nansen and Lieut. Johansen even- 
tually met the Jackson-Harmsworth 
English exploration party near Cape 
Flora, June 17, 1836. and returned to 
civilization by the steamer Windward, 
operated by that e:ipedUlon. 

In the meanthne, Cspt Sverdrup and 
the sturdy Fram were locked In the 
ice. Thp drift of the Ice brought them 
across the Arctic basin from 85 de- 
grees 95 minutes north. On August 
13 that year the, Fram was near open 

Capt. Sverdrup determined on a bold 
exipcdient 'before winter came upon 
him. He blasted his ship free of the 
(Iocs with giant powder and steamed 
for open water, reaching Tromsoe 

AVhen the Fram reached civilization 
she was still provisioned for three 
years in the Arctic. The captain

ing ihe road In the first place was a 
great piece of engineering, when you 
consider that it was built for Its en- 
tire length without the use of a sin- 
gle horse or a wheelbarrow." 

Mr. Cummlngs will stay In the, city 
about a week and then he will go — 
back to his first and only love, Carl- 
boo. He was very sorry to hearr of 
the death which occuiTcd the other 
day of Mr. J. B. Hobson. "He was a 
fine man. 1 knew him well. ' He was 
one of my greatest friends." 

For fifty years Mr. Cum-mlngs has 
been taking out annually a miner's li- 
cense. Last year he made .application 
for It in the usUaF way. and the'-lwdl- 
dent came to the attention "of the

During the last few years a new tex- 
tile Industry hiia ttlitirii in which plno 
fibre in the form of i>aper atade. from 
wood-pulp, la employed. .\n article on 
the subject, by C. P. Hellberg, of Swe- 
den, has appeared in the Textile Instl- 
luto Journal (1911. 2. 23). The paper Is 
cut Into strips, which arespuii into 
jtv-arn on a ring spindle. This paper 
yarn is said to be suitable for packlng- 
twln« and cords, whilst carpets made 
from 'It are already in grejit dfimand 
on tha Continent. It can be combined 
with cotton for the manufacture of up- 
holstery fabrics and workmen's aprons, 
and will doubtless compete with jute for 
the production of oil-cloth and Backing. 
The paper yarn is not damaged by wa- 
ter, eltJier hot or cold. 

Is the most alluring beauty In the 
world. It is a prize within reach 
cf alniost every woman, if she will 
but give proper attention to her skin 
and her general health. 

The evil effects of raw winds, dust, extreme 
cold, woridng in overheated and steamy rooms or 
In bad air, can be counteracted by using

General Manager Bury Tells of 

Big Expenditures on Con^i- 

pany's Western Lines 

(World. February H, 1913.) 
One completely equipped unit of 
the mammoth new Coqultlam termmal 
j,.i.em» 4s to be constructed by the 
■anadlan Pacific Railway durinK tiie 
coming =(jiai>!r «*"" s-"^-'-'-'* '^ 
to an announcement made today By 
Mr Geirse J. Bury, vice-president and 
Keneral manager of the C.P.R., who is 
in the city on an Inspection trip of im- 
provements that are contemplated In 
the west generally and Vancouver and 
Cociultlam in particular. 

The expenditure that is to be made 
this year alone in Coqultlam In, the. in- 
stallation and erection of one unit of 
the company's terminal plant wi 
amount to over $600,000. Biit llVet will 
lie only a start. Mr. Bury declares. The 
entire big terminal scheme Is laid out 
in units to be constructed as the in- 
crease of traffic demands. The first of 
these units which is to be completed 
next fall. VIU comprise a round house, 
about 25 miles of tracks, car repair 
shops, paint shop, machine shop, tem- 
porary bunkhouse for the men, ooal 
bunkers and such other minor buildlni?s 
and equipment as arc necessary for the 
establishment of lernilnaljia.cllltics on 

such a large scale. 

l!:ventually there will be four or five ] 
units and about 95 miles ot tracKs al- 
the eompany-a Coquitlam terminals. 
But it has all been designed on the 
unit principle, and the units will he 
added and the terminal facilities in- 
creased as the growth of commerce 
and traffic warrant it. Mr. Bury em- 
jvhaslzed the fact tbat in establishmg 
these terminal facilities at Coquitlam 
twe company was plan.ilns "Ot cn.y^-or 
wonderful growth and demands of Van- 
couver's world-wide commerce during 
the next few years, but even what that 
commerce may Increase to when the 
large proportion of the trade that is 
expected to follow the opening of the 
Panama canal Is directed this way. 

ana <ihat tne constn«^-j_^^^, 
awaits the favorable tLClmm'0^ 

That the construction of the line 
must be started in the neer 
assured beceus* of the fact that they 
are now under contract to deliver loss 
from the vicinity of Mission Junction 
to the Pitt River within thirteen 
months. This will not .n*an ^that the 
road will be entirely cotppleted by that

one of New Westminster's old pk- 
tablished machine shops will be trans- 
ferred from its location on the water- 
front of the Royal City to a site which 
has recently been purchase<l In Coquit- 
lam. It was announced in New West-

and a small block of stock placed on 
the market. A site of flfty-slx acres 
having en extensive frontage on the

been acqulrad.

Mr. John y. I^ansan, repreaentlng a 
.syndicate of local and eastern capital- 
igfs todav clofied a deal for the pur- 
chase of 100 lots in Coqultlan>. The 
lots are located in the fJheuKhne.ssy 
subdivision, and are the last of the lots 
In this section. The price named in the 
sale was about STiO.OOO 

Shnughnesay subdivision Is the resi- 
dential section of the Coquitlam town- 
site and is considered to he one of the 
best locations In Coquitlam. 

It Is announced by the Coquitlam 
T'ernilnal company that the first ad- 
vance In their properly at Coquitlam 
will take place in «b')ut ten days. The 
Increase will be on an average of .'iO 
per cent, of the prices now quoted. This 
19 the first advance that has taken 
place since the Coquitlam property was 
put on the market. 

Mr. George Bury, vice-president of 
the C P. R./ and general manager of 
all lilies west of Winnl^peg. arrived in 
Vancouver at 10.47 o'clock thl« morn- 
ing, and will spend the greater pert of

Mr I.. D. Schaffner and Mr. Kllas G.

who were In Vancouver last week, have 
returned home, tout not without having 
formulated a plan which will meiu a

Ized than hv sending It up In smoke. It 
Is the intention of these two men to put 
It to better advantage. The two have 
joined forces and will sell lumber to 
those desiring to build and will them- 
selves crecit a large number of houses 
on property they have acquired. 

Bought a Double Corner 

Mr. Sohaftner bought a double corner 
in the business district for |::.500 and 
several small building lots. The oub- 
rll visions at St. Mary's HeightB. James 
I'ark and Shaughneasy hAvo been select- 
ed a.s the scene of operations. Mr. 
I>angley bought property to the extent 
of »I5 000. The doals were negotiated 
by the Coquitlam Terminal company. 

The same scheme is also under view 
bv Messrs. Brown and McKay. This 
firm has already bought ground in Park- 
view and will have a mill to employ 
RO m«n. This will mean that builders 
will be enabled to purchase lumber on 
the spot without having to pay the nc- 

ceasary ireiBni «•»»■«»••*••'•— —— — ■ - - 

ver mills. 

.Steel manufacturers are also taking 
their hats off to Coquitlam. The 
Schaake Machine company of New Weat- 
mlnster. a concern employing IsO men 
sold out their business recently and 
have purchased a site with trackage Ja- 
clllties at the point where t''« ' ^f;; 

begin the construction of a factory to 
employ the same number of men as were 
at work in the Royal city. Money Is 
alPo being raised In the east by Mfssrs. 
Brown and McKay towards the forma- 
tion of a $100,000 Steel corporation.

One thousand men are needed at Co-

ceived In the city this morning by an 
engineer closely associated with tnc C. 
p R The company will shortly issue 
instructions to have their working force 
at the new terminal town Increaaod to 
that figure. The order will go into ef- 
fect about the first of March. 

Something like :iOi> men are tlready 
em-nloyed at the C. P. B. town. TbU 
will mean empioymcnt for 800 more. 
The company will rush this seaHon s 
work there. - 

No definite information a^ to whether 
men wrlll be employed by contracting 
company or by the railway company 
was received, but directly or Indirectly, 
It is certain that a thousand, or nearly 
a thousand, workingjnen will be shipped 
up the Pitt river and put to work clear- 
ing the site and preparing th.e way for 
the shops, the trackage and all t!>e other 
equipment which the hig transconti-

The company itself will p\it on two

west of Winnipeg, who for many days 
was In Montre«U In conference with Sir 
Thomas Shaughnessy, president of the 
C. P. R. 


(Vancouver Province, Dec 2Z. 1911.) 

-The tendency of the age m r«llw«y 
pracilcp on the continent Is for tho 
roads to lay out railway yards some dis- 
tance from the Mg cities In °r(itr in 
facilitate' the handling and dl«lrlbu Ion 
of freight tr.iffic." he said, "it was just 
-this motive that prompted the C. P. R. 
to make extensive purchases of land Rt 
CoTUtiam. It would be unwise to con- 
tinue to utilize as freight yards prop- 

erty in trie oly woi iT.. saj, a. -t tr 

dollars a front foot. Montreal has al- 
ready had tl-.p same experience. Our 
freight terminals and yards there are 
located at Outremonl, some miles out- 
side the city limits."

Plans for New Depot 
No word was received about the big 
new depot for Vancouver, other than 
that the plans are about ready for the 
builder and that in the course of the 
n^xt'few weeks something very defin- 
ite will be given to the public. The ap- 
propriation for the new <iepot is not 
Included in the ^5.000.000 which ma 
been set aside for uises west of Held. 

In a great number of instances large 
amounts liave been set aside for the 
,-eplaclng of temporary structures

concrete or steel work so that the

greater safety, more pleasant traveling

At Cotitiltlam the largrest Expenditure 
Will Be Mads 

Here the company has decided to put 
Into operation a part of their extensive 
plans for making this one of the larg- 
est terminals in the Dominion. The full 
development of the terminal site wU 
not be accomplished at once, but the 
approprlaWon this year is sufficient to 
keep large crews of men at worn for 

A tweive-aiake i-Vnirid-hOuSS is t© .>8 
constructed In addition to a coaling 
plant and water service. Twenty-five 
miles of track for yard purposes will 
be laid this year, and everything done 
to provide Coquitlam with complete ter- 
minal facilities. An Industrial trunk line 
from the yards 'Into the, townsite is to 
be surveyed In the course •' of a short 
time, and win be <<sonslructea' in con- 
nection with the other work at Coquit- 
lam. \ 

Two subways, in accordance with the 
agreement with the municipality of Co- 
quitlam, ere to be builf. They are to be 
located on the ea.stern end of the com- 
pany's property on the Dewdney trunk 

The main thing announced Jat this 
time for Vancouver Is the roe1< filling 
which Is to be placed under piers A and 


In the near future there will probably 
be further announcements lo bs mad" 
regarding the contemplated Improve- 
. ments of various sections of the line. 
Those things which pertain to Vancou- 
ver imrtlcularly and in which there ds 
considerable interest, such as the dock 
and the station, will probably bo com- 
pletely covered in other and later mes- 
sages from the head of the C. P. R.

Australian labor party, the creation of 
an Australian state bank, competlnij

A system federation of the employees 
in the operative department of the Den- 
ver and Rio Grande railroad, numbering 
approximately ?000. has just been ef- 
fected. This federation represents the 
Brotherhood of Locomotive Kngineers, 
Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, 
Order of Railway Conductars and the 
Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen. This 
is the first system federation among 
the brotherhoods to occur, and is fol- 
lowing out the policy of the American 
Federation of Labor organizations in 
federating organizations on the railway 
systems employed outside of the operat- 
ing department.

Oriental X^tbor 
The question of the exclusion of 
the Sikhs and other Orientals from 
entering Canada, which Just now Is com- 
manding 30 much attontlon has given 
rise to a charge of incon-ilstency and 
unbrotherllnees being made by outsid 
ers against the labor organizations for 
their hostile attitude on this question, 
says the Toronto Star. If unionism 
stands for a new religion, so to speak 
of unlver.'»al brotherhood among all 
the world's workers as claimed for it 
why this unbrotherly attitude toward 
workers of other nationalities, especi- 
ally Mlkhs, Chinese, aiiu bo on? The 
t,roublo Is that the ldfo.1 .conditions 
which make for universal brotherhood 
are as yet far from -belhg realized. It 
is the conditions of today which have 
to be dealt with today, though we may 
at the same time work more Indirectly 
for the looked for Ideal conditions of 
the future. It Is not the fault of the 
labor organizations that they are com- 
pelled, owing to existing conditions In 
the InduaUlal world, to assume an at- 
titude of apparent hostility towards 
llielr brothers of other natlopalltlea. 
White men and Oriental.'^ are alike vic- 
tims of an Industrial situation which 
allows them to be exploited by the pres- 
ent BKatem which can only be described 
as capitalism, even though the use of 
that word doee imply In this con- 
nection a certain antagonism towards 
tabor. It la. therefore. In the long run

Properties In Which No 
Mistake Can Be Made 

Thos^iohave the means to invest in Victoria real estate 
are forlunale, more fortunate thanthey know. I'he men who 
are well off in lliis city today, who have retired from Inisiness, 
have not made what they have out of their l)usiness or out of 
their labor, but out of their investments in city real estate. 

jf these investments have proved gilt-edged in the past, 
what about the future, for the future holds more prospects 
of expansion and development for the city than anything in 
the past. 

No great events have taken place in the past but at present 
ihP ritv^is on the eve of greater events than perhaps any other 
city on the Coast. The completion of the new ocean docks, the 
gtneral improvement of the harbor to accommodate twcntij of 
the huvest shins afloat, the opening up of ifie Indian^ reserve 
for general railroad and Inisiness purposes will'tteiV' 
V/c/or/a.evcrvfootofwalcrfrontage on tliis side or the other 
side of the harbor will be affected, and we strongly advise to- 
day all who have money to invest to see us and let us submit to 
them a list of properties on me watemont ... ««..i-- »--"„.. '<-"^- 
other properties in Victoria West, immediately adjoining the 
Reserve and adjacent to it, which are directly in the path of 
future development. 

We would again ask if the faith of the investors has been 
justified in the past years, is it possible for them to make a 
mistake now before all the things which arc going to happeh 
have happened. 

In the adjoining columns you will find some properties 
v%hich are verv valuable, which can never be bought for any 
less, and which thoroughly justify the price asked for them to- 
day. The people of Victoria and British Columbia should 
awake to tlieir present opportunities. 

James Bay Waterfrontage 

60 feet on Belleville Street, close to Kingston, 
running down to the water, $26,000. It only re- 
„..;,...< 'iiROOn t<v handle this, balance 1, 2 and 3 
years. The above is the biggest snap in that dis- 
trict or in fact in the city and is $10,000 below the 
price of other lots. This price is for immediate 
sale. There is $40 per month revenue from this. 

James Bay Waterfrontage 

120x250ft. A fine piece of property for a 
safe investment, $62,000. Terms can be ar- 

T^*^^o TK^^T \M at f^rir nutate 

The finest piece of waterfrontage for sale 
around Victoria. A full 120ft. in the very best 
situation with splendid i)uildings for their pres- 
ent purpose. Easy terms, $100,000. There is a 
certain $50,000 ])rofit in this price. A good in- 
come can be had now from this splendid busi- 
ness property. 

Victoria West 

Where many large deals have already been 
made and where many much larger ones will 
be made in the near future. 

We have over thirty separate pieces of prop- 
erty in this district ranging in price from $5,000 
to $26,000, all of which are in the immediate 
tract of the future developments. For obvious 
reasons it is not policy on our part to publish 
these locations and prices at the present tin^e, 
but we urge those who desire to invest in tjiis 
district to call' at once and secure the informs* 
tipn \y e do nojt care to give here.

Surrounding Country, in 
which -over 200,000 acres of 
Farm Land have been re- 
served and surveyed for Pre- 
emptors ONLY. 

iMir the past two years we 
have published a pamphlet in 
which i'; g^-ivcn all informa- J 
t ion • available about Fort 
George and Central British 

\Ve have continuously 
made public the outstanding 

That there is no prairie 
land in the Fort George Dis- 

That with the exception of 
small areas of open mead- 
ows, the land is covered with 
a growth of timber, some 
light and some heavy; 

That 50 per cent of the 
land is light soil, with sand 
and gravel ridges; 

That the main rivers, such 
as the Fraser, Nechaco, 
Stuart and Salmon, are 

below the .bench land 
through which they run; 

That there is an abundance 
of pure water in creeks, 
lakes and rivers; 

That the climate is sup- 
perb; and 

That one acre of the good 
land is worth as much as five 
acres in any other part of 
Western Canada. 

The truth is good cnou.u;h 
about Fort George, and \n c 
are publishing this advertise- 
ment so that the intending 
settler and investor shall 
know the truth and not l)e 
misled by exaggerated re-

"WblU DO dLitluctt\-« .epoch marWi 
the hlHtory of the Inetttutlon for laitt 
year." write* Dr. Doherty, the medical 
aupMrlDtendent, in hin re^aumo tor 1011. 
"the policy of the hospital alonif the 
Ilnea of a progreaatve inquiry hae been 
maintained, sreatly aided by the spirit 
of eameat and sealous endeavor on the 
part of all th* officer« and ataff to ad- 
vance and enlarge iie u»e£uiiitjSo In the 
•pecial branch of work for which the 
institution waa estabilBhed forty yettre 
a«o. The procpe^to of useful work in 
the treatment of our mental cases in 
this province were never so bright or bo 
full of promise aa today. The hospital 
is now receiving the closest attention 
of the many keen intellects of our pro- 
vincial cabinet and members of our pro- 
vincial legislature, without whose aa- 
alBtance in the supply of facilities all 
our efforts would be without avail. 

■The average outside practitioner 
may be of the opinion that the suc- 
cess of an Institution depends entirely 
upon the man directly In charge, and 
upon the rational methods adapted by 
him m his means of management, di- 
agnosis and treatment. True as this 
is to a certain extent, for tne iunua- 
mental principles on which the general 
treatment of mental cases Is founded 
are to some extent the same today aa 
in the past, still there Is an ever- 
changing routine !n tiie prs-ctlce of all 
medicine, but pa-ticularly In this the 
case in the branch of psychiatry, and 
even still more no in the methods of

pendent Insane In public hospitals; and 
It I« Just licrc where the m-^rllonl sup- 
erintendent and hl« assistants tind 
themselves entirely helpless unless they 
have as superior otTlcers men large- 
minded enough to grasp the situation, 
and sufficiently conscientious to see 
tliat the finsD^Lal aasistance is includ- 
ed in their yearly estimates. 

Oreat personal Interest 
"While probably in Canada there is 
not yet an Institution In which thti 
eiuipment measures up to all demands 
of the clinical service as the several 
superintendents would have it, still 
this is no reason why our new hospital 
at Coqultlam should not do so, and 
thanks to Hon. Dr. Voung's great per- 
sonal interest and energetic efforts. I 
am inclined to think that British Co- 
lumbia's new mental hospital, now ra- 
pidlv nearing completion, will approach 
more nearly the ideal standard than 
any other Canadian hospital ^'«t con- 
structed. Here we will have buildings 
of the very best possible construction, 
absolutely flre-proof throughout, with 
j separate buildings for the chronic 
I cases, comprised of large, a!^iT-'^dorml- 
I torlea and single roomo; w-ith day* 
1 rooms. «'i "f which have natural light 
i from three sides, are artincialiy venli- 
1 lated, and each of which opens out 
I upon a comfortable solarium. The 
I acute buildings are splendidly adapted 
I for tho reception, examination and 
1 proper treatment of those acutely in- 
I sane: while the hospital pavilions for 
I the treatment, medical and surgical, 
of those physically ill, I think will 
compare with the most up-to-date 
general hospitals In this Dominion. An- 
other feature worthy of mention is the 
isolation hospiUl for tubercular and 
other cases, which Is admirably laid 
out for the purpose for which It Is in- 
tended, as also are the buildings for 
manual arts and crafts training, with 
all the needs which experience has dic- 

i tatcd. 

I "Given such an erjulpment, It ccr- 
! tainly behoves us all to form the hlgh- 
I est Idoals of the partK-uLar part which 
i each is to play In the carrying to suc- 
.»«» of hl« or her aoeclal duties in this 
new hospital. Now, by Ideals. I do 
not associate my views with any slov- 
enly or weak sentimentalism or cor- 
rupting counterfelt.s; 1 mean the real 
senUmcnt, the rational instinct for 
service: no star-gazing or crystal- 
reading.'?, but work. In our new hos- 
pital, let our ideal be application of 
Imaginations to realities, tne grealoal 
of which will be the patient himself. 
Work of AlUaUt 
"Before ouUining our general routine 
of treatment for the past year," con- 
tinues Dr. Douherty In his annual re- 
port addressed to the minister, "I wish 
again to assure you that humanity has 
always taken the first place, both 
where the care and treatment of those 
acutely Insane, as well as where tho 
happiness and welfare of those chron- 
ically afflicted, were concerned. Much 
mistaken sentiment exists, not only 
among laymen, / but very often, also, 
even amOng general practitioners and 
surgeons, that where a person recov- 
ers from mwnlty 'he gets well him- 
self; thftt Is, unlike other dUeasea. 
medical Interference has little effect 
In curing the patient. How absurd, 
for. at a matter of fact, this Is not a 
whit more true of mental cases prop- 
erly handled tjian It is of most phys- 
icil dieeases In which recovery takes 
place. Let the house surgeon from 
any general hospital go Into the ofCi- 
cea of a modern mental hospital, and 
he will find that the diagnosis are not 
by any means haphazardly undertaken, 
he will nnd the aSienj-t with his bac- 
terologlst and clinical clerks diving 
into histories and making examina- 
tions so thorough that hie Is astounded. 
When shown the charts of the hospi- 
tal's patients, he will ascertain how 
thoroughly the family and personal 
history of each patient is secured; he 
will notice that the history of the pres- 
ent Illness shows step by step the pa- 
tlenfe approach to mental unbalance. 
If he looks a little further, he will no- 
tice charts acquainting him of all var- 
iations of body- temperature and blood- 
counts, and variations from normal of 
all seoretlotis and excretions. Take 
him Into iba acqte wards and let him 
see for hlms«lf the precautions taken 
In feeding maniacal cases In order to 
support- strength against exhaustion; 
let him s«« the production of quietude 
of mln* and sleep hy baths and other 
proper sedatlvel: let Mm see the up- 
building of nutrltHm by forced feeding 
and suitable t<»tlo»: and. if not yet sat- 
isfied. Uke him Into the shwps, or bet- 
ter stin om to tha »arro, and let him 
^t*mp,^-.titmr,.mniiuiiiM at the sluggish 

uj- in carrying p«ti«ntf oy« thp ori»l» 
of pnwmonia/or that adopted by hlra 
In tha appUcatioa of , spUnts U> tha 
treatment of a fractured l«g- 

In fact, if he has been properly 
shown through the mental hospital, I 
think he will admit that here it re- 
quires, to a much greater extent, an 
Insigbt and knowledge of the individ- 
ual and of human nature seldom oalled 
for In the conduct of a case of bodily 
Illness. During the year, 882 patients 
received such treatment as described 
above, while the percanUge of recov- 
eries aa a result was I9.&t. those dis- 
charged as Improved being 27.4. 

"In respect to hyarotherapy. much 
attention has been given during the 
past year to thils most useful method 
of treatment. More than ever am I 
convinced of the efficiency of contin- 
uous baths and wet packs, and now 
hardly an acute case enters the hos- 
pital who is not given a shorter or 
longer course of this treatment. Dur- 
ing the year we installed an additional 
hydrotherapeutic plant in our refrac- 
tory-female ward; and this too has 
given splendid satlafacUon and is a 
great assistance in the routine han- 
dling of sub-acute cases. On the male 
side. Mr. A. G. Beaton has again had 
complete charge of our plant, and has 
handled this department to our entire 

satisfaction. ^

previous year's cost was only 50.5 cents, 
but during last year much now furni-

and new temporary buildings at Coqult-

made in t<he estimates and wh:*.h, ac-

Attached to Dr. Doherty's general re- 
port for the year is a series of tabular 
staWstlcal tibstracta showing the aver- 
age number of patients in residence for

Ion as to the exact quality and standing

stallions and brood mares and some 
twenty head of dairy cattle Were shown 
in competition at the Dominion fair held 
at negina, Sask., early In July. For re- 
sults I refer you to the various t;*"*-

Journals, all of whle«i agree that Brit- 
ish Columbia, represented by the Colohy 
farm, furnished the surprise of the year, 
winning over twenty prises, •including 
Ave cbampionahlps and three grand 
championships." The aggregate work

OMPARE them on a value basis. There is more 
real value in Tudhope Cars-more service, more 
equipment, more refinement- than m any other

A broad statement ? We can prove it ; Tudhopo

Mining authorities vvlio have followed the 
ncvelopment of the mnieral wealtii o^ British 
Columbia for years are authority for the state- 
ment that the mines of this province have 
contributed over $400,000,000 to the wealth of 
the world, considerably over one-half of that 
having been produced in the last ten years. It 
is predicted that the next few years will see 

_ _.l;ii i..^t.u^~ o,-fi,r<fv i" th<» nrodtic.tion of the 

gold, silver and copper-bearing ores, as with 
the amount of new railway construction now 
under way and projected the areas which will 
be made available and profitable to the miner 
will be greatly enlarged. 

That this province has been abundantly 
blessed in the distribution of valuable miner- 
als has long been recognized, but owing to the 
difficulties of transportation only the richest 
portions of the deposits could be worked ow- 
ing to the expense attached to placing mach- 
in^ery on the ground with which to do the min- 
ing and the plants for the recovery of the min- 
eral values. In many cases' this feature was so 
formidable that all thought of extensive works 
at the mines had to be abandoned and the ore, 
and onlv the richest of it, could be handled 
profitably in this way, freighted by packhorse, 
rawhide or wa^'on t'^ the. nearest smelter or 

mill. " ; 

Tt is now hoped that a new era is opening 
up for the miner when, with additional rail- 
ways, heavv machinery can be delivered at 
points which have up to date been inaccessible 
and deposits known to be of large extent buj 
not running high enough in vaiuc>. to stanv^ 
the heavy expense of crude freighting, sys- 
tems will be capable of development on a scale 
sufficientlv large to make the returns remun- 
erative". 'This will not only mean a big in- 
crease in the wealth of the province by the 
production of new bullion, but it will give em- 
ployment to thousands of men and thfc mining 
camps and mining towns have always beer, j 
the best markets that the merchant or the sell- 
er of farm products could obtain. 

In the January number of the British Col- 
umbia Mining Exchange, Mr. E. Jacobs of 
' Victoria. B. C. has an exhaustive article on 
the increased development of mining in the 
province and the prospects for further activity 
This progress, he says, will be strikingly 
shown by a comparison of two portions of the 
time during which there were records of the 
mining industry of British Columbia. The 
aggregate value of production for the fifty 
years from 1852 to 1901 wa.s $172,242,000, and 
for the ten succeeding years, 1902 to 191 1. 't 
was about $224,800,000, showing that nearly 
fifty-seven per cent, of the- aggregate ya.ucs 
produced in the sixty years was made in the 
last ten years, leaving only forty-three per cent 
for the entire half century preceding. Fur- 
ther than that the proportion of the last five 
years, 1907-191 1, was $123,000,000, as against 
$101,000,000 for the first half of the decade. 

The reeults of the mining industry in the 
province last year are regarded as exceedingly 
satisfactory notwithstanding that statistically 
British Columbia is not in a position to make > 
the showing that the condition of her mineral 
proucing areas should place her. Owing to 
the strike in the coal country, during which 
the employees were idle for two-thirds of the 
year, the labor dispute extending over a period 
of eight months, the coal production was nec- 
essarily heavily curtailed, and in addition to 
the lack of coal led to the cessation of opera- 
tions at the biggest copper mining properties 
in the west, and in addition a large number 
M the smaller copper mines were affected ma- 
terially in the amount of theif output. 

In connection with the production of gold 
6n? large and several »maUer hydraulicing 
systems were installed in addition to those al- 
ready in operation, and to the older workings 
wcrj^ added extensions of water supply sy»-

In the Cariboo mining district, which com-

ions, the value of the placer gold recovered 
was estimated at less than $220,000, as com- 
pared with $239,000 in 1910, the season being 
short for placer work, owing to a late spring 
and lack of rain in the autumn. Placer min- 
ing also was the chief mining industry of the

Here are some striking appreciation?, of 
Dickens, George Saiul ami Slriiulbcrg, all 

wiilicu iiuiii iiiici cBLiiiy' pOiiitn \:>i VlC'iV. 

Principal George Adam Smith, preaching 
ill Glasgow Cathedral by request of the Dick- 
ens Society, spoke on "The Clirislianity ol 
Charles Dickens."' It is of special interest in 
view of the centenary of Dickens' birth. 

"There niay have been," .says IViiicipal G. 
A. Smith, "in every century men and women, 
wlio. born to bear the sin? of others, have 
lived not only to articulate tlieir suffering into 
a gospel for their generation but iu translate 
it into effective and ])er.sii.tent works of re- 
ilemption for their fellow victims. 

"Charles Dickens was one of tlieni ; and 
that is the biggest fact about him— far bigger

guage. He was no mere artist, with the gift 
of vision to sec that in the life of the poor, and 
particularly of the children of the poor, which 
lie had enjoyed peculiar opportunities of ob- 
serving, there was a wealth of picturesque 
characters and situations, of dramatic possi-

bitleniess and borne- the shame of, the sins of 
his time. Out of these he had come baptized 
to the work of delivering others from them. 
and till the end he carried on that work with 
unwearying energy and passion. 

" 'He hail 1)cc(ime terribly earnest in the 
"matter? ^a^.^ the friend who knows liim best 
His own words uttered when he was planning 
')ne of his earlier novels, are these: "i am 
bent on striking a blow for the poor.' And his 
friend and biographer, Forster. adds: 'With 
the \"ery poor and .unprosperous, out of whose 
sufferings and strugglings and the virtues as 
well as vices, born of them, Iun not least splen- 
<iid successes were wrought, his childish ex- 
periences had made him actually one. They 
were not jiis clients whose cause be pleaded, 
with such i)athi's and humor, and en whose 
side he got the laughter and tears oC all the

The Hero in Dickens 

"So that whatever fascination tlic wonder- 
ful fertility, both of lii^ e.\i)crience ;uid imag- 
ination may have for us — or on the other hand 
however we may be compelled to recognize 
CNtravag»anccs in his art or errors in his life 
into which the forceftdncss of his nature be- 
trayed him — we admire in Dickens not merelv 
the great artist, but in a very real sense the 
hero — the hero in action as well as suffering 
— the hero with the hand of God upon him. 
and driven by that hand along the way of 

■"The unswerving faith in Christianity it- 
self. a|)art from sects and schisms, which had 
never failed him at an_\ period of his life, 
found expression at its close in the language 
of iiis will. 

" "I romnTit mv soul to the mere} of God, 
Ihrt.iugh our I/:)rd and Saviour Jesus Christ, 
and I exhort mv dear childreii humblv to trv 
j^ .truidc thcmseh'es by the teaching of the 
ir* i estamcnt iH-ita-broad spirit, aiul lo put 

faith in an/ man's narrow construction of 
its letter, here or there' 

"'i'hc clhie which tliese definite convictions 
supported was lofty and disinterested. To his 
youngest son he wrote that he. was "to do to 
other.s: w'hat he .wouid that they should do to 
him. without T)eing discouraged if they did not 
do it.' To the Birmingham jjeople he said that 
they were 'to attend (o self improvement, nut 
becau.'^e it led to fortune, but because it was 
right.' and again 'All kind things must be done 
on theii; own account, and for their own sake, 
and without the least reference to gratitude." 
■ Nothing of uhat is n(;bly <lone can ever be 
lost ' 

"Xo writer of our time has d'.Mic more — 
though some have done it with greater sul)tle- 
ty — tojMcture 'the inevitable and unfathom- 
able consequences of sin.' Out sin. the orig- 
inal sin of selfishness, no writer has tracked 
witli so remorseless a pen. 

"Again- there is the uniailing purity of his 
writings, so often the subject of the praise of 
the best of his countrymen, and a much nced- 
cil rebuke to many of the novelists of todav. 
The works of Charles Dickens bring their 
readers into an atmosphere in which cant dies 
and hypocrisy is exposed to itself, wicked- 
ness is alwayis ugly, .-ind goodness seems rnore 
possible than it was l)cfore. 

■'His novels put a new conscience as well 
as a new heart into British philanthropy." 
George Sand 

George Sand, the great French novelist. 
was not, says a writer in the Quarterly Re- 
view , "a politician, not a thinker, but none the 
less, in her ekxpience and passion, a true ci\ii- 
izer; though Sainte-Heu\c would reserve the

the time 1 had already ceased lo adore her but 
it . was impossible to penetrate further into 
her private life without becoming her adorer 
again in au'nher and a better sense. Seeing 
her, anyone felt iintnediatel}' that he was in 
the presence of a nature i)rofoundly generous 
and bcne\()lent, in which all egoism hud long 
since consumed itself in the incxtin.guishable 
flame of poetical enthusiasm and her faith in 
the ideal; of a nature ti> which every human 
interest was accessible, dear, and from which 
there emanated help ;tud ssinpaiiiv. ... 
And beyond all that, a.s it were, the uncun-

thing lofty, free, heroic' 

George Sand's IdcillMM 
"A fierv at'd ^''cncr'.'us he^'-VL "-"ciii in the 
service of idealism — that is the exjjlanation ofv 
George Sand. \'o oihcr is needed. ,She had 
pity upon mankind. The pain of the wurld

and crimes that abounded. The defect ■.o'i<.\

care tcSWpiPTA-e 'her own welfare apart from 
'tliat of all. Weary of herself, of men, of al ! 
things, she had traversetl the regions of doubt. 
liut one fine day 1 said to myself. 'What docs 
it matter! The world is great and fair. All 
we believe so important is not worth tjiinking

punished for my stupidilv ; 1 ha\-e suffered as 
much as one can suffer; pardon may surely 
be granted me. Let us make our peace with 
the God of goodness." ' 

"So she wrote in her later (lays to Dmnas 
fils, consoling liim in his hour of gloom. She 
was ever ready to console in her letters, as in 
her novels; not only bending the show.<« t»f 
things to the desires of the niind. but claiming 
in her copious and limpid elo(|uence that the 
wyrld of fact shonld and could be shaped to 
the fairer dream. Herself and her ))erforni- 
ancc she held in the slightest esteem. She 
care<l little for what she had writteti. She 
ne\er hail the leisure, as she siirhed f<:'r a mo- 
ment, to please her>elf. to shai;e tiiat master- 
piece which is lacking, which is diffused the 
rather through her hundred \ulumes. '1 know- 
nothing about anvthing, except to lo\ e and 
belie\e in an ideal.' 

Poetry of Common Folk 
"She could be content if it was .gi\en her 
to win over a lew contemporaries to share her 
own ideal of gentleness and descry with her 
the poetry of common folk and things. Yet 
it is becoming- more and more recognized that 
she and Balzac, loyal admirers of each other, 
raised the French novel to its height. The 
kingdom indeed is to the forceful; and litera- 
ture is measured by intensitv. He who is 
haunted by the. vision of evil, and can sound 
the dread capacities of human natt'.re. will 
necessarily overshadow his fellow of the hope- 
ful and trusting heart. 

What George Sand Did 
"But George Sand does not lack her force 
and intensity ; it w as she and jiot Balzac who 
stirred the prolilenis of Ibsen and Tc<lsto\ in 
advance, urging the freedom of woman to be 
noble, and the social reparation that springs 
frbi-ii' the setisc of fraternit}. She was the 
■Aeolian lyre of her times, it has been said; 
the echo of the century in its most generous 
aspirations. The widest \o\-v. of faith and 
hope were her portion. 

''She lived bv admiration. :u\i] looked to 
the triumph of the good, the fair, the true. 
.■\ble to console and inspire she well may eon- 
tituie to propagate the sense of the ili\inc 
within us. And it were ungrateful to look 
narrowly upon her shortcoirungs." 

August Strindbcrg 

Dr. F.dinund Gosse, in the I'all .Mall, writes 
an a])preciation of the great Swedish writer, 
Strindberg, apropos of the gift to him on 
Tuesday of a' national i>urse of money, as a 
tribute of admiration. 

"He is," says Dr. Gosse. "one of the 
extraordinary men now living in Europe. 1^1 e 
is perhaps the greatest writer of Sweden. Init 
even that is not certain. .V perfectly judicious 
Swede might, J think, rcconmicnd to a foreign 
student the work of Sclma I^agerlof as repre- 
senting the Swedish language at its highest 
point of purity. Miss Lagerlof, a writer Of 
magical sweetness, rarely sinks below a cer- 
taiti high level, while Strindbcrg i.s able to 
grOvel to the very depths of ugliness and 

"But what makes him impor'.-' is the vio- 
lence of his temperament, the emphasis of his 
Iiterar> cliaracter. so marke I that in no ex- 
cess of higli or low c;ui he f<^.- a mornent be 
• orgotten. He is unruly, excessive, exasperat- 
irg, inspiring. But with -all his astounding 
faults and incoherences, he has one domiriant 
faculty, that of towering above his contem- 
poraries like a Goliath. 

".August Strindbcrg was born in Stockholm 
sixty-three years ago. His eafly career wa.s. a 
struggle against poverty, against opposing 
forces of every kind. It was not until his 
thirtieth year that he began to make hini.self 
felt in literature, as a dramatic poet of extra- 
onlinjiry breadth and penetration, in 'Master 

his sour novel of 'The Red Room* (1879.)

Dr. Chalmers Mitchell terminated his sc- 
ri.c.*< of lectures at the Koyal ln.*iitution on the 
Childhood of .Animals, taking as his filial sub- 
ject the way in which the young idea begins 
to shoot, says a London exchange. '1\) give 
{)oint to his remarks he brotight with him a 
cotnplele n-ienagerie. and the lecture \<3s 
punelualed throughout with strange .rounds 
and cries. There was a cockatoo wlio pro-

The animal which takes long^.-^'t to grow

all the H.ine, ha* the brightc.<t future before 't^ 
and hei-e we see that the conlin\ied success of 
I'eter Pan is l)ecau-c he won't grow up at al'. 
To compare nian w ivli monke} . i^utr nearest

our noble selves, we find that a t-fian's voUth 
may be said to qxtend I" -'O ^ ears. an<l I he

monkeys ,to eight or twelve years. It is .\a- 
turc's own .sy.?tcm of education, and. acc<ud- 
ing to her standards, nian might be called a 
university graduate alul the chimpan>'.eC a 
l)roduct of the \-illage scliool. So what chance 
lias the tadpfde. who h.ns no education at, all? 

In the lower nimals. as in the case 'of the 
turhot. we sec that millions are produced iit 
order that a few mav live. That 'is the hap- 
hazaril way of tloing things. P>ut with th^ 
higher animals it is entirely different. Only a 
few youiig ones are produced at a time, and' 
r.ach of tliij^se has great care and attention 
given to its educatii->n. Here the lecturer 
>]Knved the difference between instinct and 
education, and pointed out that with the hid' 
er animals, such as the lion, the tiger, the 
monkey, and s(j on. even including oitrselve.«, 
go thr(-iugh a periotl of yotjth or educatioti 
which gradually repl.-iccs blind instinct by 
reasoned intelligence, and during w-hich they 
learn to fit themselves f<>r the years when 
they will have to set up house "on their own."

tion to the part they will perform iu adult lil>

Dr.' Mitchell has an educated carachh or 
lynx, at home which is a :ilrikijig example of 
one of the higher animals which is fC'rgetling 
its instincts .and developing reasonetl acts 
.After it has been fed it puts up its face to be 
wii)ed, a thtng wiiirh it liAs learned to do, and 
witich does not come from inherited institict. 
.\nd after it has been for a walk jn the garden 
it .w-aits for some one to come and w-ipe its feet 
with a towel. It hates the proce.^s. but reali:<es 
that it is the cot-rect thing to do,^' It i-s like a 
man who has risen very much in tbe world 
froiti small beginnings, and who dresses toi 
dinner. He does not like it. but kilows that it 
is expected <)f him, and .=10 does it. 

The lecturer then gave a series of exjieri 
mints with i-i-ienagerie-hred animal.^, wliich 
hlvnved triumphantly the ascending scale of \o- 
tclligcnce in the animal world. He took i 
large snake from a bae. and let it wave about 
over a guin<*a pig. The guinea pig sCetned 
unaware of its presence, so stnpid was it. The 
cockatoo regarded the ?nake with Aomc indig- 
nation, but was otherwise ttnmnved. ^A sqtrir- 
rel seemed faintly curious. .A lemur, least, in- 
telligent of the mo'nkey tribe, wanted tu play 
with it. A baby monkey, who had neve:- sif^cti 
a snake shrank into the furthest eorner of its 
cage, and a young baboon spat and .•'crtame'd 
in terror, so paying the i?enalty of intelli- 

Finally the lecturer had .something to say 
about (hat interesting young aniniil. the boy. 
It was wrong to think that hi began with a 
mind which was a slaic. Tli.s tnrn'd. on 
the contrary, was a most amazing niix'ture of 
instincts and attributes which had come down 
from f.-»r-off ance.stoi?.«, and, th^ long-draivn-

down thcs(J Inherited instincts and to dian|fc

from liirth to majority" — the work of mormal 
and systcniati." revision wfts undertaken, and 
the present volume is the t^esult.

undoubtedly be subject to certain reservations, 
full of comrnendation and concurrence. It

tht saws derived from a masterly survey ni>t 
merely of naval history as such but of the il- 
lumination throw-n on it by "the principles and

which it is "compared and contrasted": atid

the deposit of teaching and reflection whicli

ff'ntnded on th.** experience Jind teaching of the

"Historical irm-ilrations alui Lon-iments. and 
secondly. "Foundations and . Principles." and 
these are followed 1>>' two others dealing \vith 
theapplication of the ]jrinciples so detern-iined 
to the special consideration of the stratcg}- <,>f 
the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean S^ea, the 
"Mediterranean" of the Western Hemi-

five immcdi-ately preceding them, constituted

The arrangement of the. volume here indi- 
cated is a little intricate perhaps, and its gradu- 
al growth is attested by many indications. 
There ai^e frequent repetitions in it, esperiaily 
of. ])hrases w-hich almost lend to become 
catchwords: as when we are told on page af- 
ter page that war cannot be made without tak- 
ing^. as Napoleon said, or still more ire- 
qilently. pcrhaa^, that, as Xapoleon also said, 
war is a htl,4lne?s of positions. . Again, the too 
frequent reference, always in terms of greater 
or, less disparagement, to "The Blue Water 
School" aiid "The Fleet in Being'* becomes 
rather tiresome, especially as the Admiral, 
who is for the most part laUi;!ahly judicial in

George Clarke, "An effective fleet" — pre- 
sumably inferior, as Adrtiiral Mahan concedes 

-r."is a most powerful deterrent to naval oper- 
ations, and especially to the oversea transport 
of military force.?," no one, says our lecturer, 
will quarrel with, such a statement. This be- 
ing conceded, the argument may be closed, so 
far as our present purpose is concerned, by 
quoting a very sound maxim enunciated by Ad- 
miral .Nlahan in another and more general con- 
nection : "None but a hopeless doctrinaire 
would deny that circumstances powerfully 
modify the application of the most solid gen- 
eral |)riuciples." 'J'he discussion mainly turns 
ov. the position of the Russian Fleet in Port 
Arthur. Was it or was it not a fleet in be- 
itig? The ijuestion might be debated endless- 
ly >o long as we are dealing merely with 

terms aiul fhporips Rut a< ^r^yn a« we COme 
to facts ,\ilmiral .Mahan answers it decisively. 
It was nijt a fleet in being, he says, "for it 
was nc\-er nscd as such." For the same reason 
the .Admiral sa\-s it was never even a Fortress 
Fle.ct — to adopt the comenieiu term coined by 
hi in to describe the theory of naval action 
^Vhich underlay. the dispositioys of Russia, the 
making the fleet so far subsidiary as to have 
no reason fi.)r existence save to help the fort- 
ress." It would seem that the Russian naval 
authorities regarded the fleet as merely an a|>- 
pendage to* a fortified harbor, its principal 
function being t o engag e in the defence, and 
main's hi the passive defence, of that harbor. 
This ijrings us lo the question of Coast Forti- 
fications, v/hicli forms the subject of the Ad- 
tiii.rtirs last chapter and furnishes the occasion 
for a few more gibes ar the so-called Blue 
Water School. J-iere. if we niay say so with all 
respect, the great exponent of sea power seems 
lo ])itt his case much tou liroadly. He states it 
in thi.s way : 

"Men begin: Coast fortresses serve only 
for defence- They continue: The Navy de- 
fends better than nnv I'ortress can. They con- 
clude: Theret'orc, money spent on fortresses 
i« vasted, and should l)e spent on the fleet. 
This i-. briefly . the -^} llogism of the ijlue Wat- 
er School. (Granting the premise the con- 
chision fo)1'->^vs : but the premise is erroneous. 
S,trategicallv. coast fortresses arc not tor de- 
fence, but for off-:nce by sheltering and sus- 
taining that force which against an invader is- 
aii offensive arm ; that is. the Navy. It fol- 
low-s that they mu-^t be ilcveloped on the land 
.Mde^as well as on the sea side, in order to 
preserve them against reiluction. either by 
coup de main oi-'l)v prolonged siege, as at Port 

^^ e do not know if a Blue Water School 
exi.^ts in the United States, nor. if we did. 
shonld \vc presume to discuss the question 
whether its tenets are or are not applicable to 
the circumstances of that country. But we 
would point out that its tenets are certainly not 
inapplicable to a country which, like Gr^at 
Britain, aims, and must always aim, at su- 
pren-iacy at sea. and therefore does not. and in- 
deed cannot, regard invasion as a contingency 
to 'be contemplated, until, and unless, it is 
beaten at sea. beaten "to a frazzle." as Mr. 
Roosevelt would say. In such a case there is 
in our judgn-icnt nothing erroneous in the pre- 
mise that "I'noney si>eiit on fortresses is wasted 
and should be spent on the fleet." For this 
reasciin. without in any way disputing or even 

l■||^CilS^illg lui" dpiniLaiioii of Adiiiiiai Ma- 

han's arguments to the special circumstances 
of the I'nited States, -^-c have only to say that 
in our judgment they afford no conclusive 
answer to tiie counter-considerations, specially 
applicable to this country. Which were long- 
ago advanced by the late .Admiral Colomb in 
an essay entitled "Local Fortifications and a 
Moving Navy.''' 

But enough of criticism, which must al- 
wayf> be an unwelcome task in the case of a 
book so ftdl of sound rfoctrine and of saga- 
ci<»us application thereof as is this of Admiral 
^lahan's. ( )f his general treatment and pre- 
sentation of his subject we can only speak, 'ex- 
Ceptis excipiendis." in terms of almost un- 
qualified praise. It .should be lx)rne in mind, 
of course, that these lectures were originally 
prepared for and delivered to an audience of 
American naval officers, and that therefore, 
while in its purely historical survey the book 
is at once general and comprehensive, in its 
p/actical applications of the teachihg of his- 
tory its point of view is adjusted- rather to 
the lungitude of Washington than to that of 
London or of any other European capital. This 
will account tor the gfcat stress laid»-h$gftt>. 
mately enough from the point of view actt^ttd,

For many long and weary days the town 01 
Kimberley had been beseiged by the Boers, 
and though hope dies hard, there were few but 
felt it w>as only a question of hours now when 
the garrison must either die at their posts or 
surrender. Rations were low. For days the 
inhabitants had been subsistnng on horse 
flesh, and living in burrows under heaps of 
mine refuse. Now the horse flesh was prac- 
tically gone. Each day the suffering of the 
people grew more acute. At c.cven o cock 
every inorning they gathered in the square to 
receive their meagre allowance of lood, and at 
this hour the Boers concentrated their firing 
on that one spot. Added to the devastation 
wrohght bv the guns of the enemy there were 
the terrible dust storms to contend with, and 
the fear of trouble from the negroes, whom 
Cecil Rhodes kept with difficulty at*\vork. 
"\\'hen General French's troops were stiH 
eight miles distant, the signalling corpr- in- 
tercepted a heliograph message from the be- 
leaguered garrison to the Plodder River, say- 
ing. - •The" Boers are shelling the town. 
Fr^ench's advance column replied, 'This is Gen- 
eral French coming to the relief of Kimbcr- 
Icv." The garrison was incredulous and 
th'ou=h.t tile messao'e was a .Boer ruse, and 
na'shed'the query, "what regiment are you?'

iously-awaited succor was at hand, and a few 
hours afterward General French, at the head 
of his column, made a triumphal entry into 
the town, the inhabitants surrounding his 
troops and intermingling with them, cheer- 
ing wildlv. grasping the soldiers' hands, wav- 
ing flags, hats and handkerchiefs, and cxnimt- 
ing in manv ways the intensity of their joy

"Two Worlds," by Lt.-Col. Andrew C. P. 
Haggard, D.S.O. A novel by Col. Haggard 
is sure to have many readers in this part of 
Canada, where he has a wide circle o\ friends 
but this book has much merit, and commands 
interest on its own account. Its title is sus- 
ceptible of two interpretations. One of them 
is that the two worlds mean England and 
Vancouver Island, and the other that they re- 
fer to the material and the psychic worlds. 
Whatever may be the author's intention m 
this respect, he has succeeded in producing a 
.^tory that abounds with interest. It is .some- 
what banal in its opening chapter, in which he 
deals with the Victoria water supply, but 
when he gets into the valley of the Cowichan 
he draws' pen pictures with much vividness. 
His character sketches are .striking and mark- 
ed by a pleasing consistency, and a touch of 
the mysterious runs through the volume that 
holds the attention and excites the imagina- 
tion As a love story it is decidedly clever. 
The intcreft i9,w$.ll. sustained throughout. 
Ind<«d» it grows toward the erid, for the au- 
thor has been able to invest his tale with an 
element of uncertainty somewhat rare in these 
days when novels seem as if written by nia- 
chinerv. Col. Haggard is better known to

Literary critics, politicians, men of affairs, 
story writers, and that vast cbngregaiion 
known as general readers, have endorsed pub- 
licly and privately Kathleen Norns'^ novel 
'Mother"— endorsed it as a literary product, as 
;i remarkable human document, and as a strong 
presentation of a vitaFquestion, all iirtjne. 1 o 
these now are added the commendations ot 
clergymeh of every denomination, who unite 
in welco.ming it cordially. f 1 

The Rev. J. Herman Randall, pastOr of the 
Mount Morris Baptist Church, characterizes 
"Mother" as "a beautiful story most charm- 
ingly told," adding that "its glorification ot 
the true type of the old-fashioned mother is 
not amiss in these modern days." The Rev. 
George C. Peck, pastor of vSt. Andrew s Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church, holds that "because 
of its restraint the book is calculated to do 
the more trood among those who, caught by 
the barbarism of physical ease and spiritual 
poverty, have been setting trifling values on 
the fundamentals of life. It is a sort of delight- 
ful rarity among modern novels." Dr. Peck 
rroes on to sav, -I am impre.-^sed will! its re- 
straint as well as its essential wholesomeness 
of tone." "One comes, into the sweet, whole- 
some atmosphere of 'Mother,' " writes the Rev. 
ilcnrv Cobb of the West End Collegiate 
Church, "from the morbid current fiction with 
a great full-lunged breath of relief and satis- 
faction, as one comes out of- the sick room into 
the simlight and air of the world God made. 
Here i.s true realism, the portrayal of such a 
mother and such a home as clean men have 
known. Women like Mrs. Paget do not talk 
about ideals and do not know that they have 
them, but thev exalt the ideal of womanhood

English Critics and American Books 

Kathleen Norris' "Mother," Edmund Les- 
ter Pearson's "The Believing Years" and Rob- 
ert Herrick's "The Healer" are the subjectsof 
many commendatory reviews in the British 
press at present. "Mother' is a big title for 
a' story, but Kathleen Norris justifies it," says 
The Manchester Guardian. "Rarely has one 
read a better description of a home and of the 
l,p;i,l of it or an ampler justification of the 
mother's care. ... It is a heartening book. 
. It IS very nniriau uiiu \v-ir >-i». ♦..-., ^-^— 
The Southern Guardian characterizes Mr. 
Pearson as "an author with a sympathetic and 
far-seeing eye. who writes with literary grace 
and charm. . . . Seldom," The Guardian 
continues, "have we read sketches that more 
TaithfuHy--rcpfoduced- the .escapades ^^nd ,ex 

citements of youth than do these in 'The Be 
lieving Years.'" /Of "The HcaKr," The Lon- 
don Daily Mail writes. "There is a fineness 
about Mr. Herrick's work that lifts it above 
the ordinary level. He writes with a keen of the larger humanity and yet with that 
feeling for rugged nature which one expects 
from a Canadian story. . . . This is a book 
instinct with humanity and intolerant of the 
shame of so-called civilization. Its passion. 
often rises to lyric pitch; its characterization 
is shrewd ; its humor of the quietly sufficient 
kind that lasts."

Although the book bears the iiall mark ot 
the scholar throughout, the style is so spirited 
and graceful that it has the charm of per-sonal 
conversation with the traveller who knows 
and loves his ground, and is willing and anxi- 
ous to sharcits wonders with his friends. 

The reader has vivid glimpses of Constan- 
tinople, from its founding as a Christian city 
in the sixth century, to the gorgeous color of 
its four hundred mosques (rich with porphy- 
ry and marble, mosaic and stained glass), and 
it.s modern streets, the centre of the Moslem 
world today. *

peasants standing ankle deep in miry water.

slight formalities of the Persian Custom 
House compared with the miseries of our

Derbent. where Haroum ar Raschid, of Arab-

whose experiences are such as come well 
within the knowledge of a large body of the 
.-\merican people. There are no exciting or 
hair-breadth escapes, no adventures born of 
lively imagination. lUit there is a faithful pic- 
turcof home life in a Massachusetts town and 
of the problems which confront parents as 
their children arrive at maturity and must 
make decisions for themselves. . . . There is 
much sane philosophy and bits of gay dialogue 
which reflect youthful high spirits and enjoy- 
ment of mere being. A pleasant book,"' The 
Times concludes, "for the reader who does 
not care to gallop through a story and can ap- 
l)reciate a truthful picture of real life." 

The Man of the Hour 

Foremost among the philo.sophers of the 
day is Henri P.crgson. Although his lecture 
i-oom is the largc^st in the College dc France 
it is always crowded. Bcrgson's students 
(who represent a verital)le Tower of Babel so 
diverse is their speech) call him "The Lark." 
because the higher his flight the sweeter his 
song. The phenomenal spread of his philos- 
ophy in Europe and America is due to its in- 
trinsic value, his per.sonal eloquence, and its 
nearness to the questions of the hour. In his 
recent book "Laughter" he lays stress on the 
fact that'man, long defined as "the laughing 
animal," is also the only laughing animal. 
There is nothing really comical except human 
beings- The animal world is solemn beside 
the .so-called lords of creation. Man alone is 
an object of ridicule. The book has some new 
and startling presentments of the causes and 
effects of laughter.

When Alaric, the Goth, undertook to set 
up and dethrone the Emperor of Rome, the 
.£(reat Drama of the Seven-hilled City might 
i)e said to have closed, but as the imperial au- 
thority lingered a little while longer, the story 
mav as well be told to the end. Honorius, the 
lun'peror, who, as we have seen, took refuge in 
Ra\enna from the successful army of Alaric, 
(lied thirteen years after the pillage of Rome. 
It is notable that the Gothic leader, Adolphus, 
who succeeded Alaric, resolved rather to pre- 
serve the Empire than to complete its destruc- 
tion. He is quoted as saying: "In the full 
confidence of valor and victory, I once aspired 
to change the face of the universe; to obliterate 
the !iame of Romp; to <«rec(- on its ruins the 
dominion of the Goths; and to acquire, like 
.\ugustus, the immortal fame of the founder of 
a new'' empire. By repeated experiments I was 
gradually convinced that laws arc essentially 
necessary to maintain and regulate a well-con- 
stituted state; and that the fierce and intracta- 
ble humor of the Goths was incapable of bear- 
ing the salutary 3-okc of laws and civil govern- 
ment. ,,,Krom,_that nioiiirnt I iMoppsed^to nn:- 
-self a different object ut giory and ambition: 
and it is now my sincere wish that the grati- 
tude of future ages should acknowledge the 
merit of a stranger, who employed tl^e sword 
of the Goths, not to subvert, but to restore and 
maintaTrrtlTe glory of tbe Ro tn an Em pi f e. 
this noble ambition was beyond human pos- 
sibility. Adolphus led his forces into Gaul 
to drive out the enemies of Rome, but the re- 
sult of this campaign ultimately was to deprive 
Rome of a part of its most valuable territory. 

Adolphus. or Athaulf. to give him his true 
name, was doubtless impelled to abandon Italy 
by reason of his romantic attachment to Pla- 
cidia, sister of the Emperor Honorius, who had 
been among the prisoners taken by Alaric. 
when first he invested Rome. I4onorious de- 
manded her release, but Adolphus, influenced 
by bor beauty, determined that she should be- 
lonic his wife, and to this the princess made 
no objections. The. ceremony of marriage, 
which was performed in Gaul, is said to have 
been of great magnificence. Fifty youths, each 
bearing in one hand a ba-sin of gold and in tlie 
other a. basin of precious 'stones, placed gifts 
at the feet of the I'rincess, who was clad in 
imperial rob^s, and before whom Adolphus 
stood as one offering homage. This new .lUi- 
ance strengthened Adolphus in his determin- 
ation to secure the safety of Rome, and his ef- 
fort.; in that direction met with a fair degree 
'•f .'.nccess. His treatment of his enemies was 
;eni(';:i. and in 415 he was a victom "of the 
sword of an assassin, whom he had received 
into his service, although he had formerly 
been a leader among the troops of Ws bar- 
li-irian opponent. He was succeeded by Sin- 
gerii, H total stranger to the Goths, a man 
who showed himself to be an inhuman mon- 
ster. Three years later, Singeric died, and the 
th;-(.)iic of the Goths fell to Wallia. who was a 
general of renown, and '.ucceeded in driving 
~t&e..y:andal3out--o£ Spain and intOf Africa, lie 
restored Spain to Honorius. but that imbecile 
ruler was unable to retain it. Wallia returned 
to Gaul and established a kingdom ' there. 
About this time the Franks and Burgundians 
settled in Gaul. 

^^'hi!e these e\ cuts were transpiring on the 
Continent. Britain, denuded of her Roman 
garrisons ,and exposed to the ravages of the 
Picls, Scots and Saxons, declared herself in- 
dependent of Rome, and the action was recog- 
nized by Honorius. It is worthy of note that 
the letters of Honorius. acknowledging British 
independence, were addressed to the cities, and 
the cities were the virtual rulers of the land 
for forty years, or until the Saxons came in 
force to take possession. Thea^ forty years 
were of enormous importance to the people of 
Britain, for in the cities were preserved the 
ancient Roman traditions of self-government. 
They were the origin of the boroughs, which 
have played so important a part in the develop- 
ment of English institutions. 

In 423 Honorius died, after a disgraceful 
reign of twenty-eight years. By this time the 
Western Empire had been shorn of Britain. 
Gaul and Spain, and very little was left of 
Roman authority in northern Africa. On his 
death the throne was seized by John, who bad 
been his principal secretary. He was over- 
thrown by a force despatched against him by 
the Emperor of the East, who placed Valen- 
tinian III. upon the Western throne. Valen- 
tinian was son of Placidia, and therefore a 
grandson of Theodosius the Great. As he 
was only five years old at the time, hi.s mother 
ruled in his stead, and filled the post of regent 
for twenty-five years, during which period the 
military power of the Empire steadily de- 
clined. Valentinian was weak and dissolute. 
His nominal reign was marked by an invasion 
of the Huns under Attila, who was. however, 
opposed with some success by an army under 
the tommand of Aetius, a general who has 
been called the "Last of the Romans." Val- 
entinian exhibited the meanness of his nature 
by causing AetitJs to be assassinated, a fate 
which he himself experienced two years later, 
iiJs Hiotiier hAvin^ prcdeceaaeu hiiw by five 
years. He was succeeded by his murderer, 
Maximus, who reigned three months, during 
which Rome was sacked by an expedition led 
by Genseric, the VatJdal. from Africa, with 
whom were many Moors. During the next 
twenty years onic so-called emperor aflcr an- 
other was invested with the porpite and de- 
posed as suited the Barbarian masters of Italy. 
If} 476 Orestes wakaibte to secure the shadow 
ol'what was' once an imperial ctoyin, bttt he 

did not long enjoy the empty honor. He was 
overthrown by Odoacer, a Barbarian, but not 
before he had named his son Romulus as his 
successor. Orestes treated this youth with 
disdain; he was ignominiously driven from the 
throne, ajid his fate is absolutely unknown. 
He was the last person to claim the title of 
Emperor of Rome, and it is one of the ironies 
of history that he should have borne the name 
of the founder of the imperial city. Odoacer 
thereupon proclaimed himself King of Italy. 
He reigned fourteen years, exhibiting much 
wisdom, restoring peace to Italy and repelling 
all invaders. Odoacer, while virtually indc 
pendent, acknowledged the suzerainty of the 
Emperor of the East, but his comyiieror and 
successor, Theodoric, chief of the Ostrogoths, 
nroclaimefl himself KinP' of Ttalv and refjKpd 
to recognize the authority of Constantinople. 
He founded ntfftf'Osirogoth kingdom, which 
lasted for sixty-two years, when it was over- 
thrown, after which time the political history 
of Italy became chaotic, and the once Mistress 
of the World ceased to be a factor in anything 
but the religious life of Europe.

The First Invasion of Egypt 
"We have read the story of Egypt now froin 
her earliest days Avhen the gods had their 
abode along the Nile, to the days when she 
had become a great nation, rich and powerful, 
and feared by all neighboring kingdoms and 
principalities. Though otilier monarchs be- 
sides the Pharaohs had waged wars and en- 
larged their domains, and other countries be- 
sides Egypl had become powerful by reason of 
their great strength and wealth. Egypt still, 
through, all the years, held first place. None of 
the other Asiatic kings dared to make war 
upon the stronghold of the Pharaohs, though 
they had met and defeated the Eg>^ptian army 
now and then beyond the border of the desert, 
so that two or three of the Assyrian kings, 
elated with the triumph, assumed the privilege 
of calling themselves kings of Egypt as' well 
as of Assyria. It was not, however, until 
after Sargon the Great, and the no less famous 
Sennacherib had died, that a king of Assyria 
was to venture to carry warfare straight into 
the heart of Egypt itself. 

This king was Esarhadden, who had come 
to reign in Assyria under rather tragic 
auspices. His father was Sennacherib, and 
Sennacherib had already crowned Eshadden, 
for old age had come upon the great king, and 
he wished to have the matter of succession 
arrangCr-t in case Ot nia suuucn dcctln. li was 
while Esarhadden was absent from Nineveh 
that a plot was formed against Sennacherib, 
and that aged monarch was assassinated while 
praying in the temple. So Esarhabben's reign 
did not begin very promisingly. However, so 
able Jt ruler did he at once show himself to be. 
that the people accepted him, and from that 
time on his reign was one of never-ceasing tri- 

It was in the-beginning- of the month Ni- 
san, 670 B. C, that Esarhadden, having con- 
sulted the oracle of Shamash, and received a 
favorable reply, left. Nineveh to join the in- 
vading army in Syria. Heretofore the great 
protecting desert had frightened all would-be 
invaders from an altack on the kingdom of 
the Pharaohs, but Esarhadden had no such 
timidity. Instead of traveling along the well- 
inarked roads, he forsook' the beaten way al- 
together, and plunged with his army into the 
very heart of the desert, traveling by short and 
easy stages, and taking plenty of time, so that 
by the time they reached the cultivated land 
of the Delta, horses and camels and men were 
in perfect physical condition. What must the 
thoughts of those soldiers in the frontier gar- 
risons have been, when they looked out on a 
sunny summer morning and beheld the green 
valley between tliem and the river, filled with 
a great army, their banners streaming, their 
armor gleaming, the sunlight catching the 
countless points of bayonets and lances. Very 
valiantly indeed the Egyptians disputed the 
ground with the invaders, but they v^ere no 
match against the well-disciplined hosts of 
the enemy, and little by little they fell back, 
and one by one the towns and the great cities 
surrendered to the conquering Assyrians. 
Memphis succumbed on the 22nd, after an a.s- 
sault lasting only a few hours, and the Ethi- 
opian king had not time to remove his court 
from the "palace of the White W»ll to the 
Said," so that all his household^ his queen and 
the women of his harem, the crown prince and 
all of the other children, were taken captive 
by the Assyrian. "He further imposed upon 
them a heavy annual tribute of more than six 
talents of gold and six hundred talents of 
silver, besides robes and woven stuffs, wines, 
skins, hoAes, sheep and asses; and having ac- 
complished this, he retraced his steps towards 
the northeast with immense booty and in- 
numerable convoy.s of prisoners. ... His re- 
turn to Nineveh was a triumphal progress; 
traveKng through Syria by short stagey he 
paraded his eaptlves and trophies before the 
peoples and princes who had so long relied on 
the invincible power of the pharaohs. ... 

Esarhadden thenceforward styled himself 
King of Egypt. King of the Kings of Egypt, 
of the Said and of the Kush, so great was his 
pride in havitig trampled under f<Jot the land 
of the Delta. And, in fact, Egypt had. for a 
century, been the only one of the .Ancient 
Eastern states which had always eluded the 
grasp of Assyria. . . . The victory of Esar- 
hadden proved that she was no more invul- 
nerable than the other kingdoms of' the world, 
and that before .1 bold advance the obstacles, 
l^laced by nature in the path of the invader, 
disappeared; the protecting deserts had been 
crossed, the archers and chariots of Egypt had 
fled before the Assyrian cavalry and jjikenien, 
her cities had endured the ignominy and mis- 
ery of being taken by storm, and the wives 
^I'td dauo^hters of Pliaraohs had been car- 
ried off into servitude in common with Uie 
numerous princesses of l^lam and lCyrilr'"Sr 
that day. Esarhadden had filled his palaces 
with furniture and woven stuffs, with vases of 
precious metal and sculptured ivories, with 
glass ornaments and statuettes looted from 
Memphis; his .workers in marble took inspir- 
"^riori froni liic sphinxres~in~Egy^^ 
the winged human-headed liorls upon which 
the columns of their palaces rested, .and the 
plans of his architects became more compre- 
hensive at the mere announcement of such a 
vast amount of spoil. The palace they had 
begun to build at Nineveh on the ruins of an 
ancient edifice, already surpassed all previous 
architectural efforts. The alaba.ster quarries 
of the .A.ssyrian mountains and the forests of 
Phoenicia had alike been put under contribu- 
tion to face the walls of his state apartments ; 
twenty-two chiefs. . . had vied with one an- 
other in supplying Esarhadden with great 
beams of pine, cedar and cypress for its con- 
struction. The ceilings were of cedar sup- 
ported by pillars of cypress wood encircled . 
by silver and iron; stone lions and bulls stood 
on either side of the gates, and the doors were 
made of cedar and. cypress, encrusted and over- 
laid with iron, silver and ivory. The treas- 
ures of Egypt enabled Esarhadden to com- 
plete this palace and begin a new one at 

The reign of this great monarch came to 
an end vvtiiic be was on his way fur a' scCond 
time to Egypt. He had ruled over the coun- 
try for twelve years, and had shown himself 
to be not only one of the most able of kings, 
but the possessor of an admiral)Ie personality. 
Of all the .\ssyrian rulers he was by far the 
most humane. Unlike his i)redecessors and 
those who came after him. he did not delight 
in pillaging and ravaging the cities he captured 
nor in torturing his prisoners. He was lenient 
to kindness. 


, One of the most interesting and useful fea- 
tures of the mineral kingdom is crystallization. 
The original application of the term "crystal" 
was to quartz, and it was given to it by the 
Greeks, who supposed quartz crystals to be 
petmanently frozen water, and so they made 
this word from another which means hard 
crust. If you ever .'^aw the ice in a lake or 
river break up in the spring, j'ou can easily 
understand how a people not well versed in 
the properties of matter might discover a re- 
semblance betwixt a six-sided quartz prism 
and the prisms" into which an ice floe often 
disintegrated. It was not until the Eighteenth 
Century that the term crystal was applied to 
all rock formations that "are bounded by 
plan^ surfaces at definite angles. '" \'erv much 
more recently the term has been further ex- 
tended to include "all substances whose phy- 
sical properties are the same in all parallel di- 
rections, but are generally different in direc- 
tions that are not parallel." This definition 
may be obscure, and it may be made more 
easily understood if we say that by physical 
properties cleavage, solubility, the' transmis- 
sion of light and the conductivity of heat are 
meant. Thus there may be a substance that 
is more easily dissolved in one direction than 
in another, that conducts heat more readily in 
one direction than in another, that breaks 
more readily in one direction than in another, 
and that transmits light more readily in one 
direction than in another. Any substance of 
which one or more of these things is true is 
regarded as a crystal. 

But what is popularly known by this term 
is a symmetrical body bounded by plane sur- 
faces which me*t at well-defined angles. It 
has been established that these angles arc 
constant in all crystals of the same matter. 
Here we have a useful test of mineral.s: Take 
a very common example of crystals, iron py- 
rites. This is always in cubes, although they 
may often be so shiall as to be microscopic. 
Another yet more conmion example is granu- 
lated sugar, which consists of a of tran- 
sparent crystals, and would be colorless like 
water if it were not that the crystals arc so 
small and .so numerous that light is reflected 
from them at all angles, and hence they ap- 
pear wliite. Separate one of the granules from 
the others and examine it through a glass and 
it will look like a minute block of ice. Brown 
sugar is also crystalline, but* being moister 
than white the structure is not so easily dis- 
e<>.rR€dv -MiJny persons are familiar with the 
ftik-sided crystUizafjon of galena or silver-lead 

If a substance, aay sugar, is dissolved in 
hot water, arid- the water is allowed , to cool 
and then evaporate, tlie siigar will be deposit- 
ed in the form of crystals of fairly unifbrni 
sKc. This is likewiiie true of al other solubie 
minerals. -This sitjggcsts that a crj-stal hati a 

limit of growth at whcih its enlargement 
ceases and a new crystal «.«; formrd. Th<- 
limit appears to vary with circumstances. The 
reasun of this limitation is not understood. In 
considering crystallization we are face to face 
with another of what were called in a previous 
article Nature's laboratory secrets. We may 
theorize about it. but we cannot hope to un- 
derstand it. When we reflect that matter is 
supposed to consist of molecules in rapid mo- 
tion, it seems impossible to reconcile the ex- 
istence of such motion with bodies of crystal- 
line structure. Motion suggests direction in- 
definitely prolonged, or else limited to a closed 
curve, but neither of these directions seems 
compatible with a crystal with several sides 
and well-defined angles. It may be added that 
investiyator-i hav<» vprv mn.'l. t.» le-jn-i <-r.i>- 
cerriing crystals and crystallization. This 
quality of mineral substances is fundamental 
and very much more may depend upon it than 
science has yet even imagined.

"^-^Tii=-a"rcert^tn-"<;ity-r-no"Biatter where;-b^ 
vyas not in \icioria. there were four ministers 
of the Gnspei. They had all received much 
the same degree of education, and in respect to 
matters and things in general were about 
equally well informed. One was a Methodist, 
with a mind that loved philosophy; one was a 
Presbyterian, and man of a strong, direcf per- 
sonality; one was a Baptist, who was the per- 
sonification of energy and fearlessness; one 
was an Anglican, with a lively wit and very 
broad sympathies. These four men \vere all 
good citizens; they led exemplary lives; they 
enjoyed the esteem of the community, and 
they were foremost in every good work. They 
were all very good personal friends and often 
co-operated with each other for the advance- 
ment of moral reform. If either one of them 
thought himself superior to the others ecclesi- 
astically, he kept his thoughts to himself. They 
were all Canadians and natives of the same 
province, in the congregations to which 
these four gentlemen ministered were people 
who were unable to understand how they 
could work to gether so harrnoniously. There 

were W O.i nC'^k^^Rt^ VV iiO J!H*.J *^i ciVti' li-OUliLh Ji 'dill ^' 

good thing could come out of Anglicanism ; 
there were Baptists who thought alTthe others 
were mere camp-followers of the trye church, 
which was of course their own; thfire were 
Presbyterians who saw the shadow of the 
Pope in everything the Anglicans did and who 
looked upon the others as vvithout any reai 
standing; there wtrc .Anglicans who thought 
their clergyman lost prestige whenever he ap- 
peared in public with his ministerial friends. 
But the ministers worked harmoniously to- 
gether until the Baptist went into journalism ; 
the Methodist was transferred according to 
the rules of his denomination, and the Presby- 
terian received a call to a more important field 
Three of them are dead and each of these left 
behind a record for good works. Yet there 
were points upon which these estimable gen- 
tlemen fliffered widplv anri it; was because of 
these differences that members of their respec- 
tive congregations felt as has been stated 

The point of these oljservations is that the 
facts stated showed that men, by agreeing to 
disagree upon religious points that are non-es- 
Scutiai, can find many spiieres of activity ill 
which they can work harmoniously and with 
great benefit to the community. Historically 
it is undoubtedly interesting to investigate as 
to whether or not any one or more of the re- 
ligious denominations can make a claim to 
Apostolic Succession for those who minister 
to them, but when we discover in our re- 
scsrciTcs Wiiat manner of men some of the ear- 
lier bishops were, and how they became bis- 
hops, we may be excused for doubting the 
value of the claim, conceding it to be estab- 
lished. The differences in doctrine which di- 
vide th^ dei"iominations may appeal to the in- 
tellect, and some of them may better satisfy 
the minds of certain people than others. None 
of us arc infallible, and we all, if we think 
about religion at all, are apt to bring our falli- 
bility to bear upon the solution of doctrinal 
and historical questions. .Some of u^ find 
what is taught 45y one denomination more in 
keeping with our understanding than what is 
taught by another, and we give our adhesion 
to that denomination ; but we would be foolish 
in the extreme if wp thrwiarht that thnap ^vhr- 
cannot see eye to eye with us are necessarily 
wrong. It is possible that we may both be 
wrong on the points upon which we find our- 
selves unable to agree. We believe that the 
great majority of the ministers of all denom- 
inations think this way, but a combination of 
influences, such as loyalty to their particular 
branch of the Church, fear lest by admitting 
the possibility of error in matters of detail 
tMey may unsettle the belief of the faithful, 
uncertainty as to where they themselves 
would land if they once cut their cables and 
set out on the troubled waters of doctrinal un- 
certainty, and a very earnest desire to avoid 
hcfng stumbliVig blocks to per-sons, whose cdu- 
cati6n and mental calibre unfits them to dis- 
criminate between essentials and non-essen- 
tials, prevent them, and perhaps properly so, 
from saying publicly some of the things which 
tliey thiilk privately. We have no criticism to 
malcc of this. There is an old saying that we'

reviled because of Him were all mentioned, 
but in the whole discourse, as reported in St. 
Mat^iew's Gospel, ^here is not a single word 
said about believing anything. Much is said 
about what wc should tlo ami what we should 
not do, but not a single word about what we 
should believe. It is never wise to draw con- 
clusions ft'om insuiiicient data, but surely i 
is not unreasonable tri conclude one of tw- 
things, either that Jesus Himself laid no great 
stress upon matters of belief, or those who 
made the record of the Sermon did not deem 
anything said upon that point' of sufficient 
importance tojje preserved. As_every remem- 
ber eU'uUerance of tlieT^Iai^ would un doubt-" 
edly have been handed down, the logical infer- 
ence seems to be that nothing was said about 
belief ifi that great Sermon preached to multi- 
tudes on the mountainside. 

(Jn some fufure occasion an effort may be 
made to give an explanation of what may be 
meant "by the use of the verb "believe" in its 
various tenses as employed in the sayings of 
Jesus, but that is somewhat foreign to the pur- 
poses of this article, which is to lay emphasis 
upon the fact that in proportion as the number 
of thing.^ essential to religious co-operation be- 
tween the various branches of the Christian 
Church are reduced in number and simplified 
in statement, the greater wil be the harmony 
that Avill prevail and the more potent will the

Parliament never missed a man more than

he retired from an active political and journa- 
listic life, and went to live in Italy, says the 
Standard. "Labby" was a parliamentary m-

ed their expectant and beseeching gaze when 
things were dull, sure that he would not fail 
them. The words "Labby's up" passed round 
the lobbies always meant a sudden filling of 
the House, and when Labouchere retired to the 
smoking-room the crowd was not long in fol- 
lowing him, eager to hear the latest witticism 
from the most brilliant talker in the House.

But I do wish he would not always say that 
Providence put it there!" 

Legends and stories have clustered more 
thickly round Mr. Labouchere than round any 
other 'tnan of his time. He lived for so long- 
he was born in London in 1831— and did so 
much in the time. He could have written an 
autobiography as amazing as that of Benven

it would seem, as time goes on, to fewer and

than that of his public speaking. The preacher 
when he was a cure, a parish priest, knew his 
souls as the shepherd his huddled sheep and 
could make direct appeals to the man, the wo-

function was then a different matter. He 
was giving his own people the needed lesson, 
the immediate admonition, the tender encour-

pline lying too heavily on his ardent spirits. 
He decided to travel,' and the first place he 
went to was Mexico, where, amongst other 
things, he traveled with a circus, taking money 
at the doors, and lived for six months with a 
hand of Chippeway Indians. In 1854 he glided 
into the Diplomatic Service, and for ten years 
twcaKeci liic llu^e ui tnai. auguht p.^^.^wss-v^— 
with siich enthusiasm and spriteishness that 
it is a wonder he remained in it for so long. 
The excellent stories told about his diplomatic 
experiences are innumerable, and the general 
character of them may be mea.sured by^ what 
he wrote of the diplomatists of that day. "Plow 
different," he .said, "are American diplomatists 
from the prim old women who represent us 
abroad, with a staff of half a dozen dandies 
helping each other to do nothing, and taught 
to regard all who are not of the craft as their 
natural enemies." He served his country, or 
made a pretence of doing so, at Wa.shington, 
Munich, St. Petersburg, Dresden, Frankfort, 
and Constantinople, and acquired a rich store 
of knowledge and experience of people and 
places which he made the best use of in his 
later years as a journalist, a politician, and a 
teller of good siorie.-3. 

An Irresponsible Diplomatist 

He regarded the "carriere" in the most 

light-hearted fashion. From Washington he 

was sent on a mission to keep a friendly eye 

_- on some Irish patriots at Boston. But a few

money except a few cents at euchre. The ho- 
tel he was staying at wanted daily settle- 
ments, and so' for two days he went hungry. 
This had to come to an end, and so, dropping 
into the best restaurant he could find, he gave 
a "carte blanche" order for dinner, and found 
the cuisine and the wine excellent, refusing to 
let the question of settlement disturb his ap- 
petite. But he was not called upon to pay. 
The proprietor and the waiters were all Irish, 
arid Labby found that they were unanimous 
in mistaking him for the "patriot Meagher." 
Tears were .shed over him. such a thing as a 
bill was not mentioned, and labouchere was 
seen off the premises with every mark of af- 
fection and esteem. 

His "sang-froid" was of the most amazing 
and disconcerting kind. In i860 he received 
instructions from the Foreign Office to leave 
his post at one of the smaller foreign capitals 
and proceed to St. Petersburg. He left his 
post, and then for weeks disappeared, and 
nothing was heard of him. Eventually he was 
discovered having a good time at Homburg. 
and when reprimanded by Lord John Russell, 
he explained that his salary not being hand- 
some enough to allow him to take the train, 
he found he had to walk to St. Peter.sburg, and 
hoped to reach there in the course of the year. 
Perhaps the fact that he had inherited a com- 
fortable fortune from his father and from an 
uncle had something to do with his perfect 
"Sang-froid" in these matters. 

Elected a President 
But there was reckless courage also, as wit- 
ness the fact that during the Commune he 
walked into the Hotel de Ville one afternoon, 
and, finding they were squabbling over the 
election o^ a President for the now Republic, 
proposed himself, and, there being nothing 
against him, was promptly elected. "While 
they were discussing the Ministry," so the 
story runs ,"I slipped out to inspect my offi- 
ciakl residence." His letters to the Daily News 
during the siege of Paris were remarkably 
vivid and interesting, and at once revealed him, 
to himseW as to others, as a brilliant writer. 

No doubt the success of "Letters of a Be- 
sieged Resident" turned his thoughts definite- 
ly to a journalistic career. Previous to this, in 
1865, he «ntered Parliament for Windsor, but 

But a few years ago, in 1907,116 
the work he had done, and it speaks for itselt. 
A true touch of Labouchere humor may be 
found in the first paragraph: . ■ , ^ 

"In 1897," he said, "I was able to show that 
out of all the actions I had foughtjt^,.30 year.-, 
only two had resulted in 'substantial' damages, 
and one of these turned uu a matter of one 
greater public or private interest than the pre- 
cise position of a village .putnp, as to which I | 
was misled by trusting to the evidence of two 
beneficed clergymen, a lesson which I have 
always remenUb'erc*! '-> ni> profit.. .Tlirpjigk^^ 
placing the village pump on the wrong side of 
the street I had to pay £100 in damages, with 
a much larger sum in costs. 

"During the ten years that have elapsed 
since I made that boast, though something 
like five-and-twenty aggrieved parties have 
gone -so far as to is.sue writs, only nine have 
brought their cases into court, though two par- 
ties also made applications to commit me for 
contempt of court. A gentleman named Caley 
recovered £100 for an allegation in Truth that 
he had published in the World a story which 
wa<^ identical %vith a 'Queer Story' previously 
published in Truth. The trial, showed that 
both the stories came independently from a 
more or less ancient .source, and, under the cir- 
cumstances, I could not grudge the author 
w.hat the jury gave him. 

"In the whole ten years the only case in 
which a verdict has been recovered again>t 
Truth for a libel puhlished intentionally was 
in the case of Mr. Caley. I take a pride in this 
fact, and I think every one will admit it to be 
legitimate. It must be remembered that dur- 
ing these ten year? many hundreds of asso- 
ciations, companies and individuals have been 
criticised in these columns more or less severe 
ly. I could easily point to dozens who have 
been accused of conduct unfitting them to as- 
sociate with respectable men. Every journal- 
ist who does this does it, in the present state 
of the law, at grave risk to himself, however 
sure he may feel about his facts. ... 1 am 
not the only journalist who has ever made a 
practice of 'hitting hard, but I think T may 
claim to 'be the only one who, after the

the whole of that time he has only been found 
guilty on about three occasions of hitting the 
wrong man." 

"Labby" and the Cabinet 
It was in 1880 that Labouchere's real par- 
Hairfotarv career began, when, with Brad- 
laugh. he\vas elected as one of the two mem- 
bers for Northampton. He . was throughout 
his career a most fervent Radical in politics, 
and in many ways a very narrow-minded one, 
but he was so pre-eminently a man of the 
world and a charming personality that his 
Radicalism, even to his opponents, seemed but 
another interesting facet in a varied character. 
Besides, he was often more trouble to his own 
side than he was to his opponents. His part 
in politics was often mischievous, as, for in- 
stance, when he and a few other member^ 
formed themselves into a clique with the in- 
tention of preventing the election of Lord 
Rosebery to the premiership and promoting 
that of Sir William Harcourt. But he ardent- 
ly desired office himself, and would certainly 
have been one of Mr. Gladstone's last Cabinet 
but for Queen Victoria. vShe objected to the^ 
inclusion of the editor of Truth in a Cabinet, 
and Gladstone had to give way, a circumstance 
which ruffled Labouchere for many years af- 
terwards. And the only reward he ever ob 
tained for his parliamentary labors was that 
of a Privy Counciilor.ship in 1905. 

La/bouchere's most famous exposure wai^ 
that of Pigott, the forger of the Parnell letters, 
who shot himself after being tracked to Ma- 
drid. The amounts awarded against him m 
damages were no measure of the cost of .so 
many lawsuits due to his vigorous attacks in 
Truth, and it has been estimated that £40.- 
000 would not cover these. 

In 1868 Labouchere married Miss Henri- 
etta Hodson, a popular and clever Irish actres.s, 
who died some years ago, a -bereavement which 
Mt. Labouchere felt keenly to the day of his

Many people today have . tacitly agreed 
that "the sermon is the least effective part of 
the church Mfvice," that "the sermon period 

«Vf'^ _-,-- t-U-H-^ - n^rirxA r*¥ tinrnwifort^hle 
IS »lll»C l»ltJ»C »."«»«• •» t-»— ■.— — -- 

waiting" and that the "conventional sermon 
is "a tradition wWch ha« survived into a gen- 
eration for which it has lost iti meaning." So 
the editor of Harper's Weekly affirms, com- 
menting pn a letter from an active church 

pie, but upon the universality of his knowl- 
edge and upon his power of penetrating the 
secrets and sorrows, the disappointments and 
feeblenesses of unknown lives. He must de- 
pend more than ever before upon the magnet- 
ism of his personality- ,>>Jo one wants to listen 
to a stupid man, a weak man, a dull man. Ihe 
demand upon the preacher then is that he be 
more gifted than average men. Just think 
how many of us are stupid and dull and weak. 
Not only are the demands excessive, but more 
and more opportunities of social service out- 
side~thc~pulpit are open lu men o f &piriluul 
aspiration. The work of the medical ntission- 
ary, the social worker in the almost innurti- 
erable charitable organizations, of teacher, in- 
spector, slum worker, are taking men away 
from the pulpit. 

"Secondly, the channels of information 
and of mental and spiritual upbuilding are now 
much more numerous than formerly. Books 
are so ubiquitous and so accessible, the num- 
ber of writers and thinkers so multiplied over 
the earth, that people are less and less trained 
to listen. When they do become pas-sive 
enough to listen they demand art—music or 
trained and beautiful speech. Perhaps aver- 
age discourse is apt to become apathetic when 
no one can answer back. Moreover, the 
drama, novels, music — indeed all the airts 
nowsdays— ^are self consciously and deliber- 
atelv inspiring. 'We live in a period of ad- 
venturous and insurgent thought,' writes^ a 
modern novelist, and no art can escape the in- 
fluence of the all pervading criticism levelled 
today at the customs and faiths upon which 
men's lives are based. It may be bad art to 
be didactic, but it is no art at all to be empty, 
and there is no doubt but that all the art.*; 
today try either to convey a doctrine or criti- 
cally to examine doctrine. ... The spread 
of general education, then, and the greater ac- 
tivity of all the arts, has had a neutralizing 
effect upon the power of the pulpit," 

Moreover as the modern preacher has of- 
ten been reminded, he "has to compete for the 
interest of the audience often aswell inform- 
ed and as avcH read as himself." Now this 
very condition might make things interesting 
if tHe «;prmon were a period of open discussion 
cuo-o-ests the writer we are quoting, "but re- 
garded as an exercise at which a large audi- 
ence have to sit still and listen to an intellect- 
ual thesis which they feel quite as capable of 
handling as the preacher himself, it is often 
painful. " 

I hen of course there arc many more miiiOr 
Rxternal causes for the unpopularity of preach- 
ing . For instance : 

"A preacher needs a well trained, carrying 
voice ; a good enunciation ; a correct, if not a 
beautiful command of language. It may seem 
puerile to insist that external culture aids a 
clergyman; the lack of it certainly can not 
nullify the influence of a great man or an im- 
passioned speaker, but a careless training in 
the use of speech will undoubtedly be an ex- 
tra deterrent to a mediocre man." 

In his attempt to interest his audience the. 
up-to-date preacher may choose any one of 
several varieties of sermon— •'"there is the doc- 
trinal sermon, based on minute and often ob- 
solete points of jlogma : the literary sermon, 
supposed to appeal to the cultured; the politi- 
cal sermon, or the discourse on immediate 
public issues." But "to these types very few 
people confess to devout listening." So the 
writer in Harper's Weekly concludes, after 
noting the universality of thought in some of 
the great preachers of the fourteenth and fif- 
teenth centuries, t'nat tlie type vi seruioii that 
is still effective and must always be is "the 
direct appeal to virtue; not to dogmas, for 
these change in form and meaning but to the 
simple ethical content of Christianity." Fin- 

"A simple statement of a great truth is not 
only compelling at the moment of deliverance 
but it will not wear out. Intellectuality 
changes its garb with every generation, and 
much that appealed to our parents is sheer 
futility to us. Doctrines are temporary mat- 
ters, but the will to submit to the larger good 
is eternal. 

"Only the universal will still appeal to a 
large audience. The days when folk isat un- 
der' a minister to be instructed in definite ob- 
ligation is passed. When Protestantism re- 
jected an infallible church tradition and an 
infallible papacy, it rejected more than it 
knew. The whole theory of infallible knowl- 
edjre was bound to follow, and the infallible 
Bible went in the wake. In the place of def- 
inite creeds and hedged belief.s there is in the 
world today a finer oof'n curiosity as to the 
meaning of life, a deeper concern for conduct, 
an awareness of the just claims of all men, 

Mr. Staniforth Smith, Administrator and 
Lieutenant-Governor of the Territory of Pa- 
pua, the gentleman who for close upon four 
months was lost in the country he helps to 
govern, and about whom alarming rumors 
were current last yejar, has arrived in Eng- 
land. This is his first visit to the home land. 

Mr. Smith regretted his inability t|> speak 
about his late expedition, being under a 
pledge to reserve his statement for the Royal 
Geographical Society, before which he is to 
read a paper next month. He stated, however, 
that he had entirely recovered from the effects 
of the painful journey. ■ 

With regard to cannibalism, he said: 
"There can be no doubt that it exists in Pa- 
pua, although the natives observe strict reti- 
cence with regard to the custom. It is diffi- 
cult to say whether the practice arises from 
religious or gastronomic considerations or

often consumed." 

Dealing with the advantages offered by 
the new territory for the settler, Mr. Smith 
declares that there is abundant land for the 
cultivator, and as to the progress of the place 
since it came under Australian rule, he says: 
"The territory was transferred by Act of Par- 
liament in 1906, and from June .30, 1907, to the 
same date in 1908 the country shows the fol- 
lowing development: The white population 
has increased fro^ 690 to 1032; native labor- 
ers, exclusive of Crown servants in plantation 
works and in mines, have increased from 2000 
to 8806; the revenue, which was £21,813, is 
now £484^5: and the expenditure is £70,- 
699 now as against £45.335 four years ago. 
The area under lease has increased from 70,- 
512 acres to 364.088 acres, and the area of 
plantations from 1467 acres to J 5-88 1. At the 
present time the area actually planted is pro- 
bably between 20,000 and 30'000 acres. The 
total gold yield to date during the past 17 
years has reached £1,000,000. 

It is said," he continued, "that malaria is 
the bane of the territory, but a great deal too 
much is made of this bugbear. Some people 
liken it to yellow fever or 'black Jack,' but 
that is simply ridiculous. Everyone may have 
malaria out there and yet be none the worse 
for it. It is not the faver which is dangerous, 
but a careless mode of living." 

It mav not be recollected in this country— 
although' the facts were reported in Australia 
at the time, and, through the Australian 
Press, in some newspapers in Great Britain — 
that Mr. Staniforth Smith started on his ex- 
ploring expedition in November, 1910, from 
Goaribari Island with the intention of ascend- 
ing Mount Murray and traveling west in 
search of coal. He was accompanied by Mr. 
L. Bell. Chief Inspector of Native Labor; Mr. 
A. E. Pratt, staff surveyor, with 16 black po- 
lice and 33 native carriers. The party return- 
ed on reaching Mount Murray on December 
7. and then went up Turama River to look for 
indications of coal. The explorer wrote from 
Thursday Island on March 17 (having almost 
been given up for lost) : "With Bell, Pratt. 
and ir police and 17 [carriers, we endeavored 
to strike the west country. Exceedingly 
ranges. Pushed on, expecting to reach ievei

alluvial country drained by Turama and Ba-

must be upper "waters of Strickland River in

ered with jungle and scrub, through which we 
cut the whole way. We found the river a 
mass of rapids running through a gorge 1200 
.As it was impossible to cross or 

feet high. 

proceed along the banks, and bcheving it to 
he Rapid No. 3 of the Strickland River, as 
marked on the map, we made rafts and started 

down. - 

"The rapids became worse, and the ratts 
were dashed to pieces. Some of the carriers 
were killed. We lost all our food suppiws, 
tents, and baggage. After five days the mem- 
bers of the expedition, who were scattered 
along both sides of the river, were got to- 
gether. . . . We continued our journey over 
lao miles, which we walked in 34 days. Fre- 
quent stoppages were necessary to make sago, 
the supply of which was precarious. We then 
made rafts and reached the coast, finding that 
the river was the Kikori, whic4i we had fol- 
lowed for 300 miles. . . . Considerable priva- 
tions were experienced on the return journey. 
The party had been due back at the coast in 
the beginning of January', but since December 
7 nothing authentic had been heard of them, 
and rumors of massacre had gathered weight 
every day. In view of the hazardous nature 
of the undertaking and the known treachery 
of some of the natives, the prolonged silence 
of the explorers (from November to March) 
caused serious alarm for their safety. Mis- 
hap did occur, as narrated, but not through 
the gavap-crv o^ ^hfc can nibals of the interior as 

As bearin|^*u^n'^c question of cannibal- 
ism, Mr. Staniforth Smith, in one of his re- 
ports, sends to the Australian Minister of 
State for External Affairs an appendix from 
Lieutenant-Governor Murray giving the out- 
line of evidence in a murder case as follows: 
"Aval, of Baimuru, in the Gulf of Papua, was 
charged with the murder of Laura, a woman 
of Baroi, who was living at Baimuru. He said : 
'Bai-i told us to kill the three Baroi people. 
He told us to get into a canoe. We did so, 
and caught the three Baroi people (Aimari 
and his wives Laura and Aipuru) in Era Bay. 
Kairi killed Aimari, I killed Laura, and lomu 
killed Aipuru. I killed her with a dagger of 
cassowary bone. We put the bodies in the 
canoe and took them back to Baimuru. I did 
not bite off Laura's nose ; it is not our custom 
to bite off the nose of a person whom you 
have killed. If I kill a man some one else 
bites off his nose . Aua bit off Laura's nose. 
Kwai bit off Aimara's, and Omeara Aipura's. 
"'We bite off tlie noses; we do not cut 
them off. 

" 'Before we go to kill anyone we consult 
the spirit of the Kopiravi (wickerwork fig- 
ure.-^, about four feet high, which are kept be- 
hind a screen at the end of the Ravi, or men's 
house) ; the spirit comes out of the Ravi to 
the canoe, and, if the expedition is to be suc- 
ce.ssful, the canoe rocks. The spirit is invis- 
ible; the Kopiravi do not come out. 

" 'We got to Baimuru at night, and left the 
bodies in the canoe till morning. Then we 
took them to the Ravi and put them on the 
platform outside, then singed them outside 
the front of the Ravi, cut them up into small 
pieces, mixed the pieces with sago, cooked 
thcrn. wrapped them up in leaves of nipa 
palm, and distributed them. Woman and 
children may eat human flesh. 

" 'I cat a ^.ztA of A.ipuru ; I did not eat 
Laura, because I had killed her. It is not our 
custom to cat a person whom you have killed. 
If after killing a man you sit on a cocoanut. 
with a cocoanut under each heel, and yet your 
daughter to boil the man's heart, you may 
drink the water in which the heart is boiled 
and may eat a little of the heart, but you must 
be sitting on the eocoanuts all the time, other- 
wise you must not eat part of a person whom 
you have killed yourself.' " 

which is as truly religious as any acceptance 
of creeds. The letting down of sectarian bar- 
riers, the extinguishing <. 1' the old time i.atrc^ 
of sects ,will push the preachers into a wider 
field and force a deeper plowing. They must 
appeal to wider interests and search the 
deeper places of the human heart. 

"The more active .social life of the .social 
world today is an enemy to -neditation and yet 
i.s is only by meditation thr.t a man can plumb 
the depths of his own being, can reach below 
that which is temporary acquired, and exter- 
na! in himself to tha: which )is the hidde i. 
deep lying reality— the universal life. When 
a man' has the power to call out this part" of 
himself, his utterknce will always be li.tere:'

Dog whelks, which sit down by an oyster 
and by means of an armor plated tongue cut 
through the shell and devour the oyster were 
among the curiosities described to a crowded 
audience of juveniles and adults at the Lon- 
don Institution by Mr. F. Martin Duncan, in 
the first of three lectures entitled "In Nep- 
tune's Kingdom." Describing the various 
forms of seaweed, the lecturer said that they 
formed the food supply of a large number of 
creatures in the sea, and certain varieties 
were useful as food for man. Among these 
was the pepper dulse, which was collected 
round our own coasts; while in the tropics 
many seaweeds were used as the basis of high- 
ly nutritious soups. A certain quack made a 
respectablt; fortune out of "Irish Moss" by 
selling it in nice fancy boxes as tht *ov«rei|t» 
remedy for consumption. e t, u u 

Discussing a beautiful defies of Shell pllj&- 
tographs, Mr. Duncan gave interestiisg d«t«flt 
of the cockle, limpet, and other iso#teOajMft^ 
rine creatures. The oyster he »»jlt'W "^ 
enemies. While our nativ« Umpt|»<|li% 

ly vegetarian, those of the States were more 
carnivorous. Some of the latter had recently 
crossed the Atlantic and settled down on 
English coasts. If they multiplied at the same 
rate as English limpets did, this foreign in- 
vasion would cause a great deal of trouble to 
the oyster fisherfolk. Another enemy of the 
oyster wa^ the star fish the fisherman's "five- 
fingered Jack." Unlike our American cousin, 
the star fish was never in a hurry for its 
lunch, and, with hours to Spare, brought all 
its suckers to bear and pulled steadily until 
at last the oyster became exhausted and the 
shell parted. Formerly fishermen used to 
mutilate the star fish and throw him back 
into the sea, under the idea that they were 
killed. Now they knew that if cut in two 
each half would probably become a new star 
fish, and the fishermen sold them to the far- 
mers for manure. 

Mr. Duncan described the quaint and pic- 
turesque worms of the seashore, saying that 
by means of a cinematograph he had been en- 
deavoring to ascertain which leg one worm, 
with a multitude of such legs, moved first. 
Other worms built towers in which to live, 
with a contrivance like a fashionable hat at 
the top, these creatures being adorned with 
a wild tuft of hair. Apropos of the stalk bar-

he of benefit. The principle upon which this 
machine was constructed proved however to 
he the foundation ..f the Survey s new ma- 

The now predicting machine was complct- 
.xd durinu l-ebruary, 1911, after fourteen 
rs of experiment. The next book ot pre- 
dictions, soon to be issued for the coming 
vear will contain tables for the seventy pnn- 
"cipal ports of the world, the first to be turned 
out since the machine underwent its severe 
test for accuracy. 

To gain these results the machine is com- 
posed of nearly 300 wheels and pulleys group- 
ed into ^7 sets of gears. Each o tthesc gears 
represents an influence affecting the tides, in- 
cluding the action of the sun. the moon, van-, 
ous other planets, and local conditions. 

For each of these conditions there has been 
an average made, based on a number of years 
of observation. Wheti, therefore, predictions 
arc to be made for any locality the gears are 
set to correspond with these averages. 

(Jne operator only is necessary to turn out 
a year's predictions in from seven to eight 
hours. By simply turning a crank the gears 
will influence the indicators on the dials, thus 
marking the time of high and low water for 
each successive twelve hours during the year. 
Another dial will record the depth of water at 
each rise and fall of the tide, while, at the 
kame time a set of peiis will trace the gradual 
"rise and fall on time graduated paper and uvH- 
cate. as a check on the direct reading, the ex- 
act moment of high and low water. The 
curve representing this rise and fall of a year s 
tides will fill a strip of paper 380 feet long." 
The Coming Eclipse of the Sun 
The French observatories are looking lor 
uard with special interest to the eclipse of the 
sun which is to take place on April 17, 19^2- 
-\s the eclipse will be total or nearly so m 
France and Spain. The totality line as indi- 
cated bv Prof. Nordmann, passes quite near 
the French capital, but the eclipse will be to- 
tal in this part of France for only two seconds. 
On the west coast it will be four seconds, and 

At the age of fifty J. Pierpont Morgan- 
it would be highly un-American to speak of 
him as Mr. fohn Pierpont Morgan— was, ^ac- 
cording to hi s^jgi^MjaL^^^p he'-. Mr. Carl 

The newspapers rarely menftoned his nam<?, 
and then onlv in a bare sentence, as if it were 
the name of a railroad or a bank." He wa.^ 
very rich and financially powerful, and in his 
case there were no humble beginnings. His 
father was a prosperous banker, a circum- 
stance which excludes the son from the Rockc- 
fcller-Carncgie class of millionaires. And yet, 
because between hi.s present eminence and his 
status in 1887 there ^s as much difference as 
subsists between a mountain and a molehill, 
he deserves the title of "scli-made." A quar- 
ter of a century ago. in late middle life, he was 
"a banker with ideas." Today he is the "King 
of -Monev." the world's biggest banker, "at the 
head of the greatest power in control of all the 
-reat powers of wealth." By virtue of that 
control "the arch-consolidator" comes as near 
as one may may to owning ihe United States.

self if we niav trust Mr. Hovcy's picture ot 
him', i^ the model for a hero of modern fiction 
—a strong, silent, brusque, unsmiling, deter- 
mined, efficient, business man, who has a pas- 
sion for getting useful things done, and get- 
ting them done well. 

The Inevitable Morgan" 
Returning to his early history we find that 
in 1877 he began the habit, since frequently 
indulged in. of saving his country. The crisis, 
on this occasion was the \\ashington s Gov- 
ernment's want of money to pay the soldiers. 
The men reccivecl cheques, which they could 
not cash, except at 25 per cent, discount with 
a Jewish moneylender. In this predicament J. 
F'. Morgan, of Drexel. Morgan and Co., comes 
forward like the fairy godmother in a panto- 
iTiMUC and saves the face of the Government 
and the pockets of the .soldiers by providing 
all the necessarv cash at a discount of i per 
cent. But these' and -other such high and hon- 
orable adventures pale before the great rail- 
road rc-organization scheme which took Mr. 
.Morjtan into a wider arena of action, and .set 
him at last on a dizzy throne. In the 'eighties 
big railway companies were suffering from 
what American journalists called "criminal 
competition." Bankruptcies and deficits were 
iheir annual portion. This 'was a situation 
which vitally affected the banker and his cli- 
ents the investing public. He looked into it 
and he found thC'cause of the trouble was 
"foo! management." Accordingly "the inev- 
itable Morgan," as his brother financiers have 
.since learned to call him. stepped out of 

and S€nt abroad. Mr. Morgan . 
that it shall not. The crisis is over, and Mr. 
Morgan has earned the gratitude of the Init- 
ed States. 

A Mammoth Trust 
Ih KK'i Ml-. Morgan - effected his b' 
deal in creating the United States Steel Cor- 
poration by the flotation of a "billion dollar 

'ft was. and remains still, iiie greatest and 
most characteristic Morgan enterprise; an en- 
ormously complicated piece of business in the 
beginning, of which only the motive for doing 
it was simple and unc(')mplicated. The motive 
was the elimination of Carnegie from the steel 
industry. This was the starting point of the 
whole enoniKJUs transaction. 

The Morgan syndicate netted a profit "f 
about 2CX) per cent, on the amount of cash ac- 
tually paid in. and in order to make this profit 
the members had guaranteed the sale of se- 
curities amounting to one billion, four hundred 

million MUlial ^. .-^l ciii ) niJiC v. *,c.i».b .i-.j^y^ 

i,-,,^A /^.-,».cr»;rio,i t'-i Qwamn th<*m." Events did 
not so cons])irc. but if they had done so would 
this entertaining book have ever been writ- 
ten? Is it in fact possible for Mr. Morgan to 
fail? An anecdote about the multi-millionaire 
and an express train suggests, the contrary. 
P.ishop Potter, of -New York, was his guest at 
I Highland Falls. It was Sunday, and the 
1 Bishop wanted to leave early by a local train J 
to conduct an evening service. Rut his host t 
j .said there was, a later express train which 
' serve, and insisted on the staying for 
supper. After that meal Mr. Morgan drove 
him to the station. It was shut up, and the 
stationmaster had gone home for the night. 
The sound of an oncoming train was heard. 
Ideas in Action 
At this point for nine men out of ten the 
story would have stopped, the train would

missed the evening service. But the tenth 
man. "the banker with ideas." Was not in any 
trouble, lie "had" his coachman break in the 
doorwith a stone, himself entered, struck sev- 
eral matches, found the appropriate Untcrn, 
lit it. marched on the Hue and waved the light. 
The train stopped. The conuuclOr \^n^ very 
angrv. The financier disclosed his identity, 
but the democratic official' was upimpressed. 
and then Mr. Morgan ignored him. "All 
right. Bishop." he said to the scared prelate, 
••you get right in the caboose and ride to New 
York." which the Bishop did. 

There is a great deal more to be' said about 
Mr. Morgan. He always smokes and is al- 
wavs smoking black cigars— inade from a 
"special leaf" grown on his own province in 
Cuba. He once asked for and received a match 
from a man in the street to whom in exchange 
he gave one of his priceless weeds, which the 
recipient at once broke in bits and stuffed in 
his pipe. One of the few luxuries he "cannot 
afford" is to take his art treasures now storerl 
at Princc's-gate, to America. The duty on 
them he savs, would amount to .$().ooo,ooo. 
His +»abit of alloting the contributions of 
monev which he expects from his syndicate 
associates in any particular deal has led lum 
to adopt a similar proceeding when a charity 
subscription list is put before him. An Lng- 
lishman who conducted him in a special train 
across the Sahara reported that in the six hour 
almost the only words uttered by his 
were th^ irttfoductory. 

The Secret of Modern Beauty: The Banish- 
ment of Smallpox. Abstract of paper read 
to the Natural History Society of British 
Cokmhia, by Fleet Surgeon W . E. Home. 

To manv people it will not seem obvious 
that there i's any connection between the two 
titles of this paper: 1 shall, however, show 
you that it is because smallpox has been ban- 
ished (an.l that was due to vaccination) that 
good looks are so common in the world to- 
day. I can. best let you see that the English 
people have become better looking than It 
was a hundred years ago by quoting a letter 
from the gr<iat painter. Holman Hunt, whose 
-Light of the World" hangs in sn many homes, 
lie wrote to the Times in 1898 to tell the pcb- 
nlc who were becoming uncertain about the 
usefulness of vaccination, how dreadful were 
the now forgotten damages of smallpox. 

"About "he year 1862," he said, '"l^.^'-f^ 
conversing with the veteran judge, rne rvigm 
Hon. Stephen Lushington, and as his memory 
was at the time taking us back to the last dc-

bv a dairymaid, that set Edward Jenner (born 
in 1749) 'thinking. He found out that they, 
milking their cows, were sometimes infected

people so inoculated, or, as we say nowaday, 
vac-inated, did not get smallpox He was a 
doctor at Berkeley in Gloucester.shire. and did 
his first vaccination in 1796- It proyed suc- 
cessful, and was at once noised abroad, so in- 
teresting to everybody was any suggestion of 
a' means for preventing the dreaded smallpox. 
It was because the milkmaids had been vac- 
cinated that they did not get smallpox, it was 
because 'they did not get smallpox their com- 
plexions seemed .so much better than those of 
their stricken sisters. Thar is why a woman 
with a high complexion is still sometimes said 
to have a "dairymaid style of beauty." 

\'accination was introduced in England in 
and I he banisiiment 01 sinallpox .soon 
,oM...,?ed its effect on the appearance of the 
people.'' And already in 1829 'Captain ^larryat. 
who fought 'in the French wars, and wrote

acters in "Frank Fairleigh,' ' recommend a 
voung fellow to get married, pointing out it is

that not more than one person in twenty tnen

ever beauty there had been was very seriously 
marred, ft followed then that when a wo- 
man ha;! c:-raped' there vvh> .. disuo 
regard her as a beautv lor this cause alone, 
and if with this <he has chiselled symmetrical 
features, and good form of face and figure t..o, 
the adrhiration of her amounted to worship. 
The difference I see now is that every lady 
we meet would have been a beauty in my early 

davs.'" ^ n , K 

The damage done bv smallpox has been 
pictured for us bv Macaulay. in his History ot 
P'ngland, after he has just told how the Queen 
of England. Queen Mary IL. had died of that 
disease. Smallpox "wa> then the most terrible 
of all the ministers of death. Smallpox was 
always present, filling the churchyards with 
corpses, tcrrmcnting with constant fears all, 
whom it had not vet stricken. leaving/3n those 
whose Ih-es it had spared the hidcous'traces ot

may sav that some old letters were lately 
found In a country house in England, familiar 
communications between two brothers. Ihe. 
elder was thinking if he should make a match 
with a pretty and pleasant lady who owned the 
next property, a verv suitable match he 
thought, "but'." he said, "she has not yet had 
the smallpox, and. should she get it, ^vhatcvcr 
should I do if it ruined her beauty. I must 
marry .same one who has had it. Of her 
[ shall know the worst." 

And the damage universal. The rash 
of smallpox particularly attacks the face, and 
each .of the "pocks" or pockets of matter 
lelvts behind it a depressed sear.^ People so 
marked arc called pock-marked. Some people 
were hearing about Robert Burns from an 
old woman who had known him. By and 
"Was he pock-marked?" they asked 
yes" sAid she. 'Why did you not say so.' 
said thev. "Whv should I?" .said she; "every- 
hodv was nnck-marked then." The same thmg 
is shown bv the old advertisements for men 
niissing and runaways, in which it was the 
fact that thev were not pock-marked that was 
mentioned, as the surest guide to their appre- 
hension. How little help would that give to 
identification today! 

Onlv a few people escaped. They were gen- 
erally peop.}e who .living in the country, had 
been less exposed to the infection, constantly 
rife in the towns. There are traditions that 
thfre were about Edinburgh in 1800 young 
ladies who lised to drive into the towns, of 
beautv so exceptional that the townsmen used 
to cfowd about their carriages to gaze at 
them, and they walked to. do th^ir shopping 
through lades' of admirers. Those ladies. I 
wish ydu to. understand, were no more beauti- 
ful than the women of today. They dazzled 
the populace' because I't was. alas ! accustomed 
to its own damaged -features and dulled com- 
plexions, thfc melancholy result of the univet- 
<al smallpox. The helpless indignation, the 
feeling of reyolt against the common doom of 
universal ugliness is bitterly expressed in Ben

Wild ABimak as Pareuute 


Smith minor and Brown major were m 
tlieir glory at the Royalinstitutiou. There 
were real live crocodiles on the table and a 
load which carried its eggs on its back. The 
crocodiles — to be correct one was an alliga- 
tor— were lively little creatures, about a foot 
long and a year old, who tumbled over each 
other in a glass dish. Lucky that the lecture 
was not on algebra, or Euclid, or anythmg 
.stodgy like that, else the baby saunan.s would 
have had much to answer for. 

But the lecture was the fourth of Dr. 
Chalmers Mitchell's series, and the most in- 
teresting yet given. "Young Animals at

It is curious to sec how the great animal

of our own— or is it the other wa/, about? At

some babies are extremely well iind carefully 
'!:->oke('l after, and rSome have Tto shift at once 
for themselves.' And, is with lis, it depends 
on the size of the family. The tnrbot, for in-

This unnatural mother is among the most 
prolific of all mothers in the animal world. 
At the other end of the scale we have the ele- 
phant — and see at once how strong h the ef- 
fection there is between young and old. "The 
greatest naturalist who ever lived. Darwin." 
said the lecturer, "calculated that the average 
elephant lived a hundred ^ears, and that in 
t1iat time Mr. and Mrs. Elephant had only six 
rhildren, on whom they lavished the tenderest 
affection." It is a much prettier storv than 
that of the turbot. ■ _ 

Ajjd vet. in spite of the smsl) families nat- 
ural among elephants, if all the young born 
*o a single pair of elephants lived on and on. in- their turn helping to form families- 
of six every hundred years, we should at the 
end of 300 years have an elephant family on 
thc earth numbering 15.000,000, and it would 
be impossible to move for elephants. In tlu: 
same. way,. if a single turbot family all went on 
living we should be able to.walk arro.^s the 
Channel dry shod. Nature has to_ step in 
ruthlessly. There is, in fact, a "prodigious de- 
struction" going on among the youth of the 
animal world. Nearly all young animals are 
;:ood to' eat, "just, as a baby is better than .nn 
iild ijenllemdn," and herein lies the Spartan 

secret by which Nature relegates all annnals, 
from elephants to turbot, to their proper place 
in the scheme of things. ^. * • 

Throughout the animal kmgdom wc una 
that the one rule holds good: big families 
mean neglect, aild small famihes mean care 
and attention. Thc frog produces hundreds 
of tadpoles, and most of these go to make a 
fine harvest for the ducks. The toad produces 
a very small familv, and these are all fatheretl^ 
(for Mrs. Toad is not at all domesticated) un- 
til thev arc capable of looking after themselves. 
Often 'it is found among the lower animals that 
the mother will have nothing 10 do with the up- 
bringing of thc voung. The sea-horse, the 
stickleback, the toad and the emu are exam- 
ples where the father rocks the cradle. It is

Jf^it.i.s. considered necessary to subject rail- 
y engineers to tests nf their keenness of 
vision and accuracy of color-perception, what 
ought to be required of aviators, who not only 
have no rails- to guide their machines, but are 
n.ot even limited to the solid surface of thc 
earth in their movements? The motion of the 
locomotive is uiic-drmcriSionai, tuSt Ci n.c au-

lias all three dimensions for its domain. Tests 
for chauffeurs have so far been limited to then-

accidents to automobiles have often been due

atomic and functional integrity of the ear," 

Most vital of all, perhaps, the writer 
thinks, is the integrity of thc internal car. and 
especially of its three semicircular canals, 
which constitute a delicate organ of equililDri- 
um. Their ncrve-filament.s float in a liquid,

Still more is 

proper corporeal equipment necessary in the 
air-pilot, who must move in three dimensions 
and who is subject to the most varying condi- 
tions of temperature, humidity, and air-pres- 
sure. As tllis writer puts it: 
' " 'Know thyself becomes the very law of 
life to the aviator, and doubtless much of the 
appalling loss of life among aeroplanist.s might 
liave been avoided had the too reckless bird- 
men been aware of their own physical defects 
and limitations. Now that the aeroplane has 
demonstrated its ability to cany a^ very con- 
,-iderable number of passengers — a Sommer bi- 
;)lane has recently carried six full-grown pas- 
sengers on an hour's trip across i;ountry — pub- 
lic .r^^1:/.,• rloirisnrlc tliat a nhvsici.'ins certifi- 
cate of physical soundness be required of ap- 
plicants for a pilot's license. 

"A special study of thi^ subject has been 
ftiade recently by an Italian physician, who has 
reported some verv interesting conclusions to 
The Hospital Gazette. As a fir.-^t requirement 
lie observes th,at would-be pilots should have j 
perfect functional action of the organs of the 
respiratory ,and circulatorv systems, and of 
the nerve-centres, since all of these must be 
subjected to great exertion, strain, and dis- 
" "Precision of movement of tlic limbs is 
highl'v important, and so is the ability to jump 
or leap with accuracy, a quality which depend.^ 
i.ot only on leg action, but on flexibility of 
irhnlc and clearness of sight. Resistance to 
<hock should also be tested, as shouM keen- 
ncsf-i'of vision for white and for colors. 

"Soundness of thc auditory ot-gans i.s a par- 
ticularly vital matter. In the first place, the 
hearing should be nofma' because upon this 
faculty especially devolves the noting of thc 
proper and nnintcrVupied action of the motor. 
Also, a healthy state oL the drum and middle 
car, Ihc free plav of the chain of small bones, 
and ah ■linohstructed condition of the upper an 
passages and the Eustachian tuhcs are indis- 

midei made some especially interesting obser- 
vations, one to the effect that the sense of dy- 
namic equilibrium is made more sensitive by 
exercise. In one instance an aspirant for a 
pilot's license showed marked errors and illu- 
sions of direction. On examination of his ears 
there were found tarces of a previous purulent 
ear trouble resulting in diminution of hearing 
and functional trouble of the semicircular ca- 
nals. When aslced to walk in a straight line 
with his eye? shut he constantly bore to the 
right. This deflection wa« still more marked 
when walking in an arc of a circle, the circle 
enlarging at each turn if the trajectory waR 
convex toward the right and decrea.sing cor- 
respondingly if toward the left. The observa- 
tion of this case led the physician to formulate 
the circle test for the examinatio.l of the func- 
tional operation of the semicircular canals in 
would-be pilots. 

"If the pilots of dirigibles and of floating 
balloons require less rigid tests in some re- 
spects, in others they are more liable to dis- 
t.,t.Kor./-*. Ufi/ruria.f nf the Pfreatcr heichts at 
which they commonly move and because of 
thc much longer duration of the flight. For 
them, heart and lung power are of graver im- 
port, skin sensitiveness should be consiilcred. 
and gastric irritafcility may play a .significant 
part in the diminution of strength and resist- 
ance and the. general loss of staying i)owcr."

"Our aim is to make flying safe. The im-

planes that will go 150 miles an hour, but to

Mr. Wright, smiled. 

"I'm reminded of a flying story,"' he went 
on; "a story about a man who callcil at a bi- 
plane selling agency and said: 

" 'My elder brother bought- a biplane here 
last month. You told him if anything broke 
you'd supply the missing part.s.'

,^|M^ opportunity, 
/of view the meeting of Democratic:' 
■s not much significance, except w-hat 
is derived from the fact that Mr. Bryan, after , 
being regarded as entirely oi^t of the running, 
has, without apparent effort, resumed his im- 
portance in the Democratic party, and that so 
completely that his attitude towards another 
possible nominee for the Presidency is the 
thing that ])eople instinctively talk and specu- 
late about. What his intentions are no one 
knows, what he may do next no one pretends 
to guess, but it is now generally felt that he 
may make a strong bid for the nomination if 
he chooses to try, that he may exercise a 
powerful influence on the fortunes of others if 
he cares to play the part of king-maker, and 
that in any case he is a highly disturbing fac- 

tor in ItlC C<lH_ui<lllOlJ,'3 '-'I- ".iH., iyLiiyjv,. «*!..>. 


On the Republican side there is a curiosly 
similar condition of affairs. Mr. Roosevelt, 
though his popularity has waned, has no such 
record of failures as Mr. Bryan, and has never 
perhaps been so generally regarded as an ex- 
tinct force. Still, he has undoubtedly fallen 
considerably into the background, and not 
long ago would have been regarded as a high- 
ly improbable nomination for the Republican 
party to make. In addition he has always de- 

clared that he would not again seek nomin- 
ation, and he has not receded from that declar- 
ation. But in spite of all that, Mr. Roosevelt s 
name has become very prominent in Kepub.i- 
can spcculatipns. His mere refusal to seek 
nomination now goes for nothing, and it i> 
held that nothing can avail to take him out o 
politics except an explicit refusal to accept 
nomination even if pressed upon him. He nas 
not made any such renunciation so far, and m 
view of the great change that has occurred m 
his relations with Mr. Taft, no one seems to 
expect with anv confidence that he will niake 
it. He has not shown any reluctance to join 
the insurgents in discrediting Mr. Taft's poli- 
cie^s. and."according to some authorities, he has 
been aware of the movement to secure his 
nomin;'tinn and has done nothing to discour- 
age it. Amonjr the many possibilities of the 
situation there is, therefore, the possibility tnat

Mr. Taft will do his best to secure nomin- 
ation in any case, and his best may be much 
better than is supposed by speculators of the _

Ite and relatively stable. He may fail 
„ ^„ase many people upon various grouu-b, 
but'^he may very well please more people on a 
balance of considerations than any other can- 
didate. He is not so crowd-swaying an orator 
as either :Mr. .Bryan or Mr, Roosevelt, and for 
H| at reasbrt ht8 support ers make less show in - 
proportion to their numbers. But his digni- 
fied and tenacious attitude is very well fitted 
to appeal to quiet voters all over the country 
who can only be distracted and perplexed by 
the fragmentary policies advocated by various 
leaders, none of whom represents any coherent 
and settled bodv of doctrine or conviction com- 
mon to his whole party. There arc Radical 
Republicans vying with Radical Democrats in 
propounding rash schemes of change. There 
are Conservative Republicans who can be 
matched with Conservative Democrats. But 
there is nothing, so far as the spectator can 
see, to convince the electors that any distinct 
Hne of policy can be expected from a new^ lead- 
er on either side who has no really united 
party behind him. It is not improbabk in 

hands mav appear to moderate men every- 
where the'safest to which the direction of the 
nation's affairs can be committed at a time of 
political turmoil and confusion. But it is quite 
possible that the indications may prov« very 
uncertain on both sides, and that we may wit- 
ness on one or both what is called a "stam- 
pecje" — the sudden nomination of a man whom 
no one really wants, because no section is 
strong enough to carry the man of its choice.— 
London Times. 

Britain still rules the waves, nut as far as 
commerce is concerned, she rule*; them 
through the a.gency of Sir Owen C. Philii)ps, 
K. C M. i"<., who recently completed 
the greatest sleanishiu mcrecr in his- 
tory savs the Toronto Mail ami Eni- 
pirc. A few years ago when I'ier- 
pont ?iIorgan establisherl the Intcrnalional 
Mercantile Marine Company he smashed all 
existing records in the matter of con.solidating 
shipping interests, but Sir Owen has surpass- 
ed the Morgan mark by far. The Interna- 
tional Mercantile Company represents 127 
steamers of 1,113.107 tonnage; while 
the Philip'ps concern controls 300 ships, with 
a tonnage of 1.370,000 tons. .\or arc these 
figures apt to permanently represent the 
^treiigth of thc new combine, for there is a 
l)ossibilitv 'that the Orient line will' be ab- 
sorbed in the near future. For more than 50 
years thc Orient has harl a working agreement 
with the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company, 
and as the agreemcnr has now^ expired the 
probability of the Phjlipp.s company either 
swallowing its only .African rival seems 
greater than that of a v..le wAr between thc 
two. One of these alternatives is considered 
almost inevitable. 

Buys the Union Castle Company 
The coup by which Sir Owen Philipps ^ 
rounded out his shipping trust was the pur- ' 
chase of the' Union Castle Line, which shares 
with the Orient the South African carrying 
trade. P>efor<» this stroke he was recognized 
as the most important man in- the British 
shipping industry, but the general public 
knew little of him, famous though he was in 
certain circles. His absolute mastery of the 
great trade through his latest purchase has 
attracted attention to Sir 0^ven, and the peo- 
ple are being made awaic of Wuat a rcmaric- 
able young man has been at work in their 
midst. It would not be correct to say that he 
has been undistinguished until the past fort- 
night or so. for he was a well known figure 
if for no other reason than his height. Fle is 
six feet, seven inches tall, and some time ago 
a popular periodical calculated that if Sir 
Owen and his two brothers were laid head 
to heels they would stretch over considerably 
rftorc than 19 feet. 

Of Ancient Family 
Tiic father of tlicsc three giants is Sir 
fames Erasmus I'hilipps, canon of Salisbury 
Cathedral. He is the twelfth baronet of his 
line, the family being a very ancient one. of 
Welsh extraction. The Philipps trace their 
descent, in common with practically all Welsh 
men to Cadifor ap Colhon, a witness of the 
Xorman invasion, and if i)Ut to it can stretch 
.still farther back and prove that Maximus. 
Emperor of Rome, was one of their ancestors. 
In fact Sir Owen is now su important a man 
that he can prove his descent from nearly 
anyone he chooses. He was born in 1863, and 
was educated in Newton College, South De- 
von, but did not come before thc public until 
at tiic age of thirty-two he contested Mont- 
gomery Boroughs and Darlington as a Liberal 
He eventually entered parliament in 1906 as 
member for the Pembroke and Haverford 
West division, but at the last general election 
he retired in order to devote his wdiole time to 
the shipping combine that he has now com-

that he has been High Sheriff of Pembroke-

shipping rings, a director of the London and 
Southwestern Railway Company, and the St.

One Way to Get Auburn Hair 

It has been found that the way to abtain ats- 
burn hair is to get a job in a soda ash manu- 
factory. A new soda ash plant started abroad 
employs many men in the processes of chang- 
ing the salt as it comes from t,he huge veins 
which underlie the locality. When these mjn 
went to work they wore hair that ranged from 
the light blonde of the natives of Northern 
Europe to thc dark and shiny locks that grow 
upon the heads of other races. Gradually it 
was noted that the hair of the bloride men was 
assuming a golden tinge, and as time wore on 
the golden hue deepened until now thc hair 
ranges through all the shades of red from a 
golden auburn to a fiery red. The change 
from the brovkrn hair of some of the men to 
the reddish tinge appeared to be slower, while 
the black hair resisted longest, but now virtu- 
ally every man who has worked in the fJant 
more than a year can truly say that hU ^£»J|P

average Etonian records, of which we h»ve a 
l;iro;e tiocic on hand. Perhaps we may say it 
is a little more so. We will therc^fore pick out 
a few wh'' 1 we do not emember to have seen 
before. K'lt Neville thinks th,ii Montem 
might ha\c been m.^dified instead of being 
abolished Queen Victoria was so ry to hear 
of its abolition, and v.^hy she did not say a 
word in its favor is a question we will not 
presume to answer, thougli we are not with- 
out some suspicions on the subject. An am-

The Montem has always been patronized 
by royalty, and the black jackets and tail coats 
which are now the regular Etonian dress are 
said to date from the death of George III., 
when the whole school went- into mourning, 
which they have never laid aside since. In 
Eton itself up to the thirties of the last cen- 
tury on everv Ash \\'ednesday was held a pig 

"When Gladstone was a boy at Eton con- 
siderable brutality existed in connection with 
the fair, the boys, according to old custom, 
hustling the droverS' and then cutting off the 
tails of the pigs. Gladstone denounced such 
cruelty, and he dared the boys, if they were 
prou dof their work, to sport the trophies of 
ii in their hats. On the following Ash Wed- 
nesday three newly amputated tails hung in 
a bunch at his door with a paper inscribed: 
•'Quisquis amat porcos porcis amabitur illis, 

Cauda sit exemplum ter repetita tibi. 
We hope for the honor of Eton, the false 
quantity is a misprint. remaps Ine w_'''-i 
"et"' was left out. Underneath these lines the 
future Prime Minister wrote a challenge to 
the pig torturers inviting them to come for- 
ward and take a receipt for their offering, 
which he would mark in good round hand 
upon their faces." 

Bullying, says our author, was unkncnvn 
among the Oppidans, and their health and 

comfort wt«e looked after as much as they 
are now. , 

"Nevertheless, in olden days they had a f^r 
greater knowledge of the stern facts of life 
than is at present the case. The rambles round 
the slums at Windsor, visits to the fair, and 
contact with the rough and undesirable char- 
acters in the vicinity, taught them what hu- 
man nature really is ; while the fighting which 
was then recognized precluded' all traces of 
namby-pambyism. In those days Eton sent 
forth few sentimentalists into the great world 
but it undoubtedly furnished England with 
the very best type of officer to meet the 
enemy in the Peninsula and at Waterloo, it 
was an era when the sickening cant of hu- 
manitarianism born of luxury and weakness 
had not yet arisen to emasculate and enfeeble 
the British race." 

We have the Duke of Wellington's testl- 
;Tiony to the same effect. But we must not 
suppose that Eton is entitled to a monopoly 
of these masculine qualities. Westminster 
boys had at least equal if not greater oppor- 
tunities for becoming acquainted with the 
"stern facts of life." and combats with "the 
rough and uiKicSirabfe'-cfiatactcf^^'-in the vi- 
cinity of Dean's Yard were of frequent occur- 
rence. The same may be said in a more re- 
stricted sense of all the other London public 

No man who was at any public school, or 
scho ol condu cted on similar principles, before 
tile process of degeneracy set in but will al- 
low, we think, that the rough-and-tumble 
system was no bad preparation for such as had 
to make their own way in the world. Sir 
Walter Scott notices the great importance of 
officers being gentlemen, and there is no 
doubt that private soldiers are more easily led 
by tliem. 

In the same spirit Mr. Xevill writes again 
referring to the abolition of Montem : 

"The truth is that at that period all over 
England old fashioned merry making was be- 
ginning to be checked by the chilling force of 
that utilitarian commercialism which has 
since dominated the country." 

There is one question however on which 
Mr. Nevill seems a little infected with the 
modern spirit himself, and that is the value 
ot classical teaching'. He Lhin'Ks that it should 
be left to the boys themselves to say. whether 
they wish to learn Greek or not. This, it 
seems, is now the system in force at Eton. 
There is this much to be saicT however, many 
a boy who hates Greek at 12 learns to love 
it before he is eighteen, and is very glad that 
he was compelled to learn it instei'l 'of having 
his own way and rejecting It. 


Lord Rosebery, Chancellor of the Univer- 
sity of Glasgow, formally opened the new 
headquarters of the Officers Training Corps 
connected with the University. After the 
ceremony at which Principal Sir Donald Mac- 
alister ''resided. Lord Rocphery delivere<l a 
speech on the need for military preparedness 
in view of our Continental obligations. 

In the course of his speech Lord Rosebery 

Armaments — never forget this-j-must de- 
pend upon your policy, and it is extremely dif- 
ficult for us who know nothing about foreign 
policy but what we see in the newspapers to 
form any accuiatc judgment as to what that 
foreign policy may be. Do not think that in 
saying this I am disparaging the«knowledge 
of foreign policy which is derived from new.s- 
papers. I am only saying this, which must be 
familiar to all who have any knowledge of the 
subject, that what is seen on the stage of for- 
eign policy is but a -small part of the whole. 
By far the greater portion is what takes place 
behind the scenes, and as we ordinary mortals 
arc not admitted behind the scenes, not even 
to the door of the Green Room (laughter) our 
knowledge of foreign policy must be mainly . 
based on speculation. If you were able, or if 
you were willing, to adopt a foreign policy of 
abstinence and neutrality all over the world, 
if that were possible, you might go on with 
very defective military preparations and even 
without the same sedulous care of our Fleet 
which we are obliged to take. But, at any rate 
this we do know about our foreign policy, 
that for good or for evil, we are now embrac- 
ed in the midst of the Continental system. 
That I regard as perhaps the gravest fact in 
the later portion of my life. We are, for good 
or for evil, involved in a Continental system 
the merits of which I do not pretend to judge 
because I do not know enough about it; but 
which, at any rlate, may at any time bring us 
into conflict with armies numbering millions, 
and our own forces would hardly be counted 
in such a war as they stand at present. We 
know little, but at any rate we know this — at 
least I think we know it — that, during last 
summer we were on the verge of a great con- 
flict in Europe in which we were to take a 
foremost part. I do not know myself exactly 
on what grounds, but the grounds do not mat- 
ter so long as the fact and the liability were 
there. Now I take it for granted that the na- 
tion approves of our foreign policy, and, if so, 
it must be prepared to back it up, to make 
much greater preparations and much greater 
sacJCifice^ than it has hitherto been called upon 
to make. (Ctteers.1 

W« luive entered into liabilities the nature 
and extent of which I* tor one, do not know, 
but which are nist the less stringent and bind-

any moment, so far at any rate, as I can dis- 
cern the signs of the times, may lead us into 
one of the greatest Armageddons which some- 
times ravage Europe, and which would be 
greater than any war which we have known 
since the fall of Napoleon. I am not uttering 
surmises to you. I am not pretending to 
know any more than you or any other readers 
of newspapers know, but this', at any rate, 
all readers of newspapers must know, that wr 
have certain vague liabilities, connexions, en- 
tentes—I would rather they were definite alli- 
ances, because, after all. allianco limit and 
define— we have certain vague obligations the 
nature of which I do not profess to know, but

stances which are by no means unlikely to 
occur. I think this position of liability, of un- 
written and vague liability, if you' may .'^o 
speak of it. is one of extreme danger and one 
for which we cannot be sufficiently prepared. 
... Ami what I complain of in our imme- 
diate foreign policy is this. I am not accus- 
ing any man. The present Foreign Secretai*y 
is a man for whom I have the most unbound- 
ed affection and respect. I am not accusing 
or criticizing any man. I am only putting be- 
fore you this .simple thesis, which is. that if 
you have, as you have d^iberately, as I un- 
derstand it adopted a policy of perhaps unlim- 
ited liability on the Continent, you must be 
prepared at the proper time to make good 
that liability. I do not care what form it takes 
so long as it be sufficient.

When the Cockney accent reprimand- 
ed recently at the conference of the Associa- 
tion of Teachers of Voice and Speech Train- 
ing the reprimand was probably conveyed 
with the most correct elocution, says the Lon- 
don Standard. One can imagine that all the 
standard rules of voice producion had been 
rehearsed before the anathema was launched ; 
the accurate play of the tongue .xnd the teeth 
and even the appropriate use of the nasal or- 
g?n as a medium of emphasi.;, had no doubt 
been adjusted to the occasion. One may even 
wonder whether the speaker had not suffered 
some such accident as fell to one's own elocu- 
tionary acquaintance. He was hard at exer- 
cise on the larger diphthongs in his study, 
emitting waves of unfulfilled sound, when a 
too devoted servant, passing the door, thouj^ht 
it best to lock him in quite stealthily and ap- 
ply for advice to the police. 

But althought the ear. of the auditor was 
perhapH pleasantly tickled by the tones in 
wrhic|i this reprimand was uttered, and by the 
syllable cleanness and the conclusive lilt that 
can^d the emphasis, it is a question whether 
the Cockney deserves the, blahie imputed to 
him. The .^ame speaker dcpiored the loss of 

dialects in njodcm England, and if it is pos- 
sible for any one to believe that dialects are 
no longer in full vigor in our OQuntry one 
should, mistrust that person's judgment even 
upon the aesthetics, of the Cpckney accent. 
For it could be Wagered that the most culti- 
vated voice-and-speech trainer existing at the 
present time would simply not understand the 
speech of at least one third of the English 
people. It would be a delightful occupation 
indeed to take such a person into some Cum- 
berland kitchen and inaugurate a dialogue be- j 
tween the farmer and the voice-and-speech 
trainer. At the end of it they would not be in 
the slightest rapport, and the head of the 
voice-and-speech trainer would be buzzing 
with accents so "misplaced" that the most 
familiar words must have sounded to him an- 
gry and barbaric. 

If then the dialects of the provinces are 
really vigorous and still constitute strong bar- 
riers, can it be legitimately said thai the 
Cockney accent is corrupting and equalizing 
their quality at the same time? Surely, if 
one is of the North one knows well that feel- 
ing of welcome which comes to one when the 
zone of the Southern accent is passed, and 
when ±he f^orters throw about one'-'* baggage 
with the brave voice and broad speech of the 
isolated Northerner. ^The Cockney accent cer- 
tainly has not travelled along the railway lines 
nor passed from the music halls of the prov- 
inces, though they are fed by London, into 
; the^life . of the crovincial streets- Both 
voice and speech are still produced by most 
of our countrjTnen with' a locar'quaintaess 
and with rooted traditional differences of ac- 
cent. . 

But it also seems to have been {[uite unjust 
of the oracular voice-and-speech trainer to call 
Gockneyism a. corruption and a vulgarity. The 
Parisian accent, for instance,, is distinctly dif- 
ferent from the accents nf the Fre^ich pro- 
vinces, so much so that a Parisian docs not 
introduce you' to a provincial without a sort 
of apology for his mode of speech. That is to 
say, the correct standard of French elocution 
is quite generally held to be that of the cap- 
ital. \\'hy then have we come to such a pass 
that the accent of the Londoner is not equally 
accepted as a standard for the English people, 
and is indeed disapproved? The real feeling 
that one p9ssesses about the Cockney accent 
is that it is a fine and legitimate dialect, but 
that now one rarely hears it used. In fact, if 
the speaker at the conference had possessed 
a full knowledge of the English people, the 
surprise expressed would have been a sur- 
prise, first, at the. tcnacitv -of most Ena-M-sh 
dialects, and, secondly, at the disappearance 
of the Cockney dialect. 

It is still occasionally possible in our al- 
leys or at a music hall to listen to the flooding 
volubility of this womlerful London creation, 
with its scrtfaming vowels and its mouthed 
diphthongs, but it is a recognizable relic, like 
the horse omnibus. The reason of this sad 
decadence of the Cockney dialect seems to be 
in the growth of huge commercial concerns in 
which the association of all the workers acts 
as a levelling, influence, even upon what the 
associations call voice and speech production. 
The standard accent of the English upper 
class "is, it may be truly said, almost univers- 
ally employed in London trade. One could 
test it by entering a hundred shops, sinall or 
large, between Holhorn and the Marble .'\rch 
or from Hsni'^stead to CliErin'^ Cross and one 
would not hear a word accented or pronounc- 
ed in the Cockney Vay. For the poor Cock- 
ney has been civilized or .standarized — call it 
which you will — foreign labor from the prov- 
inces has taken the moulding from the Lon- 
don accent out of his mouth. Park-lane now 
sets the tone of the conversations held in 
\\'alworth. One almost pauses in one's Lon- 
don walks when on some happy occasion 
there rises above the hurjidrum humming ac- 
cent of the crowd the splendid stridency of 
what may he termed the last Cockney speech. 


1LJ@@@ (sd Seaweed 

; A wonderful substitute fo'r vulcanite has 
been prepared by a London chemist from 
common British seaweed, says the London 
Standard. So remarkable are its properties, 
particularly as an electrical insulator, and with 
such ease can it be manipulated in the work- 
shop, that it is likely to gain immediate fa- 
vor wherever vulcanite is in uf^e. The com- 
mercial value of this new product has been so 
firmly established by experiment that a com- 
pany is about to be registered for its produc- 
tion on a commercial basis. Lord Tenterde.n 
is the chairman of directors, and another dis- 
tinguished nobleman has displayed an inter- 
est in the development. The factories, which 
are ready for equii)ment. are situated U])On a 
tidal creek of the Essex coast. 

••Seagumite," as this new composition i-s 
called, exists .so far in two ms^in varietie.*--— 
one closely resembling vulcanite, and the uutrs 
sim.ilar to brown leather. In each case it pos- 
sesses the valuable property of entire non-in- 
flammability. Not only is it damp, germ and 
weather proof, but it is quite unaffected by 
the action of heat or cold, acids, or oils. As a 
substitute for vulcanite it has no less than four 
advantaires. First ^-il-aa^ing QJ <^pproxin\a te-

■ In iiu interview witlv-oue-oijJie directors. of 
the nevv company at their office, 26 Shaftes- 
bury. Avenue, a representative witnessed a 
demonstration of several distinctive properties 
of seagumite. Numerous samples were dis- 
played and answered to all the tests that could 
be applied outside a scientific laboratory. 
A Commercial Revolution 
•'We anticipated that seagumite in its sev- 
eral forms will revolutionize many businesses 
in which vulcanite, leather, and papier machc 
have hitherto been employed," said this gen- 
tleman . "'We have already had inquiries from 
several large houses, and if our plant were in 
operation today we could accept from three 
depaitments alone orders for half a million 
fountain pens, ten acres 01 waterj^roof roofing, 
and several hundred accumulator cases. The 
most remarkable property of seaguniite ap- 
pears in its high electrical resistance. Not only 
has it a higher efficiency than vulcanite, and 
therefore the highest commercial efficiency, 
but 'this efficiency increases when it is ini- 

There was an unwonted btr^tle and ex- 
citement to be observed at the Helping Hand 
Club in Settle street. Commercial road, E., con- 
sequent upon the news that between 150 and 
200 of the members of this useful organization 
for tramps are to be accommodated in the gal- 
lery of the Court Theatre to witness the per- 
formance of Mr. Tom Gallon's play "The 
Great Gay Road," says the London Standard, 
and to pass professional judgment on the tramp 
life depicted on the stage. The Rev. Richard 
Wilson, who founded the club as a winter re- 
fuge for destitute tramps, was besieged by 
photographers, who had traveled to the East 
End in order^to take pictures of the gentlemen 
of the road. "But I have sent them all away," 
Mr. Wilson explained. "I cannot allow my 
friends at the club to be subjected to the in- 
dignity of having their jwrtraits taken for 
show. Anything that hurts the self-respect of 
a human being should be avoided, and the one 
place where these poor fellows can come for a 
little rest and relaxation must be protected and 

Across the narrow roadway the Helping 
Hand Club stands. Not an imposing building, 
nor yet a luxurious one. but »• very paradise of 
rest and happiness to the poor derelicts who 
take advantage of its open door and its cleaiily, 
honest welcome. In the daytime the club 
rooms are 'given up to cleaning and scouring 
and airing, and the "members" are not admit- 
ted until' eight o'clock. The men who pcrrorm 
iWt pleasant task of making fresh and bright 
the simple, homely apartments are thefhselves 
tramps, who are selected front the night's vis- 
itors by Mr. Wallace, the secretary, who 
chdoses the most deserving caseis Tor the' la- 
bor of domestic siervice, for which they are 
paid at the rate of. sixpence an hour. 
; ''And-vfry thankful we are to get it," said 
oneitr4mp,rijMng from scrubbing the floor »n- 

mersed in water. The phenomenon is at 
present inexplicable and greatly disturbed the 
scientists at the Westminster Electrical Lab- 
oratory at tiie time of the tcst.s, ocsng contrary 
to all previous experiences. It was only after 
repeated tests with several samples that this 
laboratory issued their report. A tension of 
32,000 volts was successfully withheld by each 
sample under test. As an outcome of these 
experiments seagumite is likely to find popu- 
larity as an insulator of deep sea cables. It 
is a striking coincidence that seaweed should 
find a commercial use as a protection against 
sea water. 

'•As a material for steam-jointing, engi- 
neers will fiujj it of immense value. The 
jointings of the gigantic gas engine plant at 
the Crystal Palace during the summer, which 
were made of seagumite, successfully with- 
stood au tests of heat ano strain. 

"You .may bo surprised to hear that the 
embossed dadoes in two important London 
hotels are made of this product of seaweed. 
Unlike man^ of the patent dado materials now 
in use, seagumite is absolutely dampproof, and 
requires no ' varnishing. As a roofing ma- 
te rial it will displace tiles , and on s hips, when 
"Ti|nBBp''has failed t >'> ^'otn|^|M|p|pkl i n g p r'o-~ 
piWif^^,, It 'should beca^^^^^i'.lar floor-| 
cloth. As a matter of fact, samples are under-IS 
going expert examination this week by a large 
firm of linoleum manufacturers. 

•'■Wherever leather is in use seagumite will 
enter into competition. Tests for durability, - 
comfort, and hygiene have been made by sup- 
plying boots soled with the material to Lon- 
don policemen. "The tests have proved em- 
inently successful, for after nine months' wear 
these boots still remained waterproof. Their 
cost was less than half that of leather boots. 
As a substitute for guttapercha in composite 
belting seagumite is also proving effective. 

"The commercial application that will ap- 
peal most directly to the public is its use as 
outer covers for 'motor car tyres. For the. 
hoods and linings of motor cars and carriages 
it may find considerable vogue. When it is 
considered that seaweed, the principal com- 
ponent, exists in inexhaustible supply all round 
our coast, and that the entire cost of raw ma- 
terials for this new composition is estimated 
at 2d. per pound: it is obvious that the dis- 
covery should benefit the public, whilst allow- 
ing a large margin of profit to the manufac- 
turers, who will hold the patent rights for the 
entire world." 

to a condition of spotless purity. "Why, it

The man was young., not yet thirty, with hon-

Struggle for Self-respect 

These men who were working so cheerful- 
ly at the Helping Hand Club all seemed of. a 
highly respectable class. They looked clean, 
and, though rather thin and pale owing to 
had food and little enough of that, seemed in. 
fairly good condition. They cannot^ either 
eat or sleep at their club house, whicK closes 

^i- » T r-.Vl,-v/-lr onr»rir ovAti i n (T Kiif rifi .Slll1fla,V.S 

they are given cups of tea, and every day they 
can" rest and warm themselves and gather to 
gether those remnants of their self-respect 
that the vicar, Mr. Wilson, rightly considers 
the most important element in human na- 
ture. "To lose one's self-respect." he says, 
"is to lose faith ; to lose faith is to let go of 
honor, of de<"enry, of humanity itself. Pre- 
serve your self-respect, and there is always 
?■ motliing to look forward to. 

"When my friends who are members of 
this club," he'said. "go as guests to the Court 
Theatre next Saturday, they will go feeling 
that they can hold up their heads among their 
fellow-creatures. They will go not as out- 
casts, but as guests, and they will be a well 
washed, carefully shaved band of gentlemen, 
whose shabby clothes will not matter, 
they will be clean and well brushed. This is 
the object of this club— these men have got 
careless and untidy and hopeless frequently 
through no fault of their own. Here, in their 
own meeting-place, they can at Icasf repair 
som.e of the marks that time and weather and 
misfortune have made U|5on themselves and 
their garments." 

In the big as.sembly room, prettily decor- 
ated in honor of Christmas and the New Year 
with gay flags and festoons of colored paper, 
there hangs a large square cardboard, on 
which the following notice is carefully print- 
ed by hand: - 

"The White House (the Helping Harid 
Club) is open every evening at 8. except Wed- 
nesday, for recreation. Monday, Wednesday 
and Friday it is open for shaving and wash- 
ing, a ticket for which must be obtained the

A Neat Appearance 

"They cannot get work unless they look 
fairly neat." he explained, •'and they must 
have their clothes quickly dried for obvious 
reasons. Please don't think that our tramps 
are chronic non-workers. They are in nearly 
every case victims of misfortune. That man

pany. He met. with an accident while work-

"It is remarkable what real cleverness is 
to be found among this \vandering fraternity," 
said the vicar, as he stood in the little room 
that had just been so carefully scrubbed and 
dusted. "VVe gave our own Christmas enter- 
tainment here, and my good friends the mem- 
bers provided every item of an excellent pro- 
gramme. They sang and danced, recited and 
did conjuring tricks, and 1 assure you we were 
very merry. To he sure, many of the audi- 
ence and the performers had to tramp about 
for the rest of Christmas night and day. but 
their Avarmed hearts must have given some 
comfort to their starved bodies. So when we 
send our gathering next Saturday to the West

so wearily in reality, believe me there will be 
a discriminating audience of intelligent Critics,

A few years as^u the Insh water spaniel was 
little known in this country as an all-'round 
sporting dog. Today i.e is coming to tl-e iront 
so fast that the :vapply is not equal to the de- 
'iiand; for the maif that shoots is oegmnuig 
lo realize the fact that this spaniel is favored 
l)y nature for all-'round work, and if not 
•ibused is one of the most companionable ot 
the entire dog family. This dog has an under- 
roat which thoroughly protects luni from the 
wet and told, and in addition he is favored 
with an unusually strong constitution. Con- 
-^equently he is able to withstand cold and ex- 
posure without flinching, and as, if properly 
liandled, ne is no unucr, mc ainuxt.v»n "■■- — - 
orgv of a good specimen of the breed is amaz- 
Micr' His nose is the equal of that of any other 
sporting dog. He is not the prettiest dog in 
the world, but there is something about him 
which draws the experienced sportsman to 
1 1 i 1 1 ! . and - onte - huvsug--beeeme-asc4--4:«>-^n'*^-^<^:- 
oLher variety of hunting .dog can take his 
place. His style, intelligent look, activity arid 
cjeneral makeup are such that he commands 
attention everywhere. 

Shooters in gcnoral used to have the er- 
roueouaJmpressi. the Irish water jpan- 

iel did not possess a good nose. i\o_ doubt 
some of them have been deficient in this, par- 
ticular, and I will with regard to this say that, 
as anv other species, they must be bred for 
this valuable quality. Will Watson, who was 
once the owner of that grand old dog, Ch. 
Dennis C, told me that when hunting quail 
once he had for companions tw^o gentlemen 
with setters, and that when the day was over 
he had quite a bit of pleasure teasing his 
friends, for old Dennis had found more birds 
than either one of the setters. My Ch. Dowdy 
Girl (now dead) was broken for quail. T have 
never seen her equal at finding birds, and 
when holding a point she certainly was a pic- 
ture. At a recent dog show a prize was offered 
for the best field dog, and .she was entered. 
However, as there were several protests from 
•icltcr men. they cUiisnin.o- she was a water dog, 
I withdrew lier. In the judging' ring was a 
covered cage containing three quail. In pass- 
ing, not a single setter or pointer stopped at 
the cage. I obtained permission to try my 
spaniel and immediately she came within ten 
feet of the cage she stopped and came to as 
pretty a point as anyone could wish to See. 
One setter maiu-wJao had two dogs entered, 
afterwards told me that the best thing of the 
entire shmv was the pointing of this .spaniel. 
Some six vears ago I was shooting ducks 
over my favorite dog,^Ch. Mike B., when a dis- 
cussion arose as to the ability of any of the 
dogs p'rcsent to find a wing-tipped mallard af- 
ter it had been down twenty minutes, tlie 
ground being jiarticularly favorable for a 
ouick getawa'y for the duck. The argtiment 
finally'resulted in a match, the competing dogs 
uv:-— ' - Corilon av. ^"^n^Uslv sc'ter. and my 
spaniel, the stake being $6o. the owner of each 
dog puting up $20. ' The bird was turned 
Inosc, and when the twenty minutes' time was 
up the dogs were brought from the shack, 
taken to the spot where the biid ^^ •'■- turned 
se, and > i their w\y. After waiting 

xibiislv h-i ^, .iiic Hrtle^ time^-^e "saw: mikei;^ 
cr.ming "in with the bird, he being, about a 
half-mile away and neither of the other dogs 
within 200 yards' of him. 

.\.s to big game hunting, 1 have used my Ch. 
Pat M.. successfully, as the following will 
show. Two years ago I was invited by the 
owner of a large mountain ranch to come up 
and bring a couple of my friends for a deer 
shoot. 1 took Pat along just for the e.\ercise, 
never suspecting that he would be nf nny u^o 
lo mc. 

While we did not get a .shot the first day, 
Pat learned something, and was working in 
earnest The ne.Kt afternoon I took him with 
me again. .\nd, after we had ridden about 
three miles. Pat put up a fine young buck, 
which was brought down with two shots. 

I do not believe in hunting deer with 
hound's that will nm tlic animal a day at 
a time. But in a country where hounding is 
'permitted and the deer lurk in almost im- 
penetrable bru.^h, 1 am i«'r a stand on a hi,. 
side with my .spaniel sent into the nearby ra- 
vine to start something. Tf he jumps a deer 
and I do not get a shot, he will run only a 
short distance, will not bark on the trail, and 
return to me in a few minutes. If T

not too wide or round between the fore legs,

behind the shoulders.

and tlien the dogj rush in on llvc lallen ar.ima., 
speedily administering the quietus. 

After securing the pelt, which, with the 
bounty offered, is valued at eight dollars, we 
started on our return journey keeping a bright 
look out for a second coyote. 'However, we 
had no further luck in that way and arrived 
home hungry and happy. 

Often enough there are some laughable 
experiences in coyote hunting. The bane' of 
this kind of hunting is the jack rabbit. It is 
verv aggravating just after sighting game and 
loosening the dogs to have a big jack dash 
out in front. Away go the dogs, making a 
mighty diversion, and with them all chances 
of 3 coyote. A wolf-hound will run a j^ck 
rabbit down either on stubble or soft snow, 
tmi on hard going the jack Vv-h. casi.y ge. 


On several occasions we had sighted a 
covote very close to the town, but in various 
ways he was always able to give us the slip. 
So often did this occur that we got up a stand 

front, but feathered behind down to the icet.

fused to go into a trap, hut nothing was said 
of the' impossibility of shooting it. 

In ignorance, therefore, of thi> important 
fact, I spent several days stalking it with a 
i2-bore Parker as it sat erect on the mound 
at the mouth of its burrow; and always it 
dodged undergroujid just wlien I came within 
long shooting distance. So I changed the 
Parker for a big 4-bore goosegun, fondly be 
lieving that the woodchuck would not suspect 
'he difference. But susi>ect it he did. Finally 
the conviction fastened on me that 1 was ""ui) 
against" a difficult proposition, and then, of 
course, the killing of that woodchuck becarne 
an obsession — a point of honor (or was it dis- 
honor?), and I felt that kill it I must, even if 
4.1,., ^-.^«. .-.f «n.. i-nortal H'jv.; wpnt in the effort. 
So 1 wrote home for my 40-90 Winchester 
single-shot, an anfi~tirarha"^^ 
for so ignoble a purpose, but which could be 
depended on to be as faithful in mean things 
as in greater achievements. Three days pass- 
ed before its arrival— three days, during 
which I_2ay flat on my stomach in an angle of 

and carried it off to the haystack, where we 
stuck it upright in the snow jubt where the 
coyote was fondest of playing. Then, as the 
light was failing fast, w-j hurried back to the 
ranch-bouse, rested the new rifle on the win- 
dow-sill, and each took a shot, the first bullet 
clipping a piece from the edge of the board, 
the second passing through the centre. 

Next dav a very much surprised coyote 
spun round "in the snow at the first crack of a 
rifle looked first at one side, then at the other, 
amr,' reckoning life not worth living with a 
hole through the liver, promptly laid itselt 
down and died. 

In the foregoing cases, gratification at the 
death of the object of my spite was more than 
sufficient to relieve mc of any humiliation I 
might otherwise have felt at finding myself 
capable of harboring so low a passion as a 
grudge against an inconsequential animal, but 
in the following incident there was no such 
saving satisfaction, and because of this lack, I 
review the occsion with the liveliest self-dis- 
gust. Vanity, speaking with no uncertain 
voice, says ''Keen it dark!" Confession, how- 
ever, is said to be good for the soul (though

apture the old boy. One day when 
I was out on my pony, accompanied by two 
of the dogs for the purpose of exercise, I was 
more than surprised to' see' Mr. Coyote get up 
about fiftv yards ahead of me. The dogs saw 
l;in! and were off like the wind.' In the short 
space of two or three hundred' yard.s" lh< y 
pulled him down. The explanation of the 
short run was speedily apparent when 1 ex- 
amined the carcass.. The left front paw had 
either been shot off or taken off in a trap. On 
other occasions when we lost. him he must 
simply have lain down in the snow and thus 
escaped our observation. 

One thing that always puzzles me is the 
fact that the dog« will run a live coyote to 
the death, but will turn and run away from 1 
the pelt of the animal. Perhaps some of your 
readers, with wider experience than 1 have 
can given an explanation of this apparent mys- 
terv.— A: H. Visser in Rod and Gun.

.bat the grudge often piays an csotenc 
part in every form of jport is well known, but 

^ _^^"ose ^ 
W?Tr"'"^-*often as it^stuck its head above 
ground. Towards the end of this vigil T aged 
rapidly. Wicked thoughts are said to shorten 
life, and I must have lost in those three days 
enough years to carry me on to a hale de- 
crepitude sonivvvMcrv in the middle Pf tlie 
twenty second century. 

Then, one evening, the rifle came, and w^ith 
it a box of long, w^icked-looking cartridges, the 
sight of which acted on my drooping spirits 
like a powerful tonic. 1 hardly slept a wink, 
that night, and long before anyone else in 
the house was up I w^s out in the dewy dawn, 
making stride? for that ba"Kl place in the grass 
in the angle of the fence where 1 had s])ent 
so many fruitless hours. 

It was a beautiful morning. The world 
was at peace with itself, and 1 with the world 
—barring one woodchuck! Flat on my stiun- 
ach in the wet grass I lay. with my rifle barre' 
thrust between the rails, its busines.s-likc muz- 
zle trained on the enemy's earthworks, and 
when, m due course: the woodchuck perched 
itself thereon and took a cynical survey of

Following is the" standard of the Irish water 
spaniel as given by Theodore Marplcs: 

Head— Skull and muzzle must be of gofvV 
size; skull hicrh in dome, good length, and 
r.iirly wide, showMug large brain capacity; 
muzzle long, strong, and somewhat square in 
appearance; face perfectly smooth, 'i'opknot 
.should consist of long, loose curls, growing 
down to a well-defined peak l.>ctvveen the eyes 
and should not be ;n the form of a wig. i.e., 
growing straight across . 

Eyes — Comparatively small, dark amber, 
and very intelligent looking. 

^Ears — Very Jong and lobe shaped in the 
leather, set low, hanging quite close to the 
ch^drs, rnv^r*i1 with long twisted curls of 

hair, ^ 

N6se— Fairiy long, strong, ajid arching. 
carryin|r the head well above the level of the 
back and strongly .set into the .shoulders. 

Body (including size and symmetry)— Fair 
sized, (round, and barrel-shaped, .so stout and 

••Have you ever been coyote hunting?'' is. 
a question very often asked any man with 
Western experience. Whenever T hear the 
cpiery I am always reminded of many excit- 
ing moments spent after the wily coyote. 

In the first place readers should not confuse 
the coyote wolf with the prairie dog. They- 
arc very different animals. People have asked 
me the' question: "Does a prairie dog put up 
a very hard fight at the finish?" Their knowl- 
edge on the subject is very small or they would 
';carcelv have asked the question. The prairie 
dog. w'hich is very little larger than a grey 

amusing to see the members of one <>r their 
manv colonies sitting wp '^n the little mounds 
of earth thev throw up in digging their holes. 
Paws are drooped and they present the ap- 
pearance of a lot of little soldiers. At the 

slightest motion of .llilliai^^-J^?-? -.^.^^^P.?^^^^ 

as if by magic. ' 

There are also strong -differences between 
covote-s and timber wolves. Any coyote hunt- 
er whose dogs return badly used up may 
know that they have been trying conclusions 
with a lone timber wolf and came off second 


Covote hunting is generally followed in 
winter. In summer it is impossible to locate 
these animals on the level plains, and even in 
winter it requires a .sharp pair of eyes to see 
the grey animal standing like a statue along- 
side a str.:iw stack. 

The dog.s used in coyote hunting are a 
cross between a Russian wolfhound and a 
staghound. Well bred dogs are very expen- 
sive and sell as high as seventy-five dollars 
each. They are divided into two kinds, 
known a^ rough and smooth. The only train- 
ing necessary'is to run the young dogs on a 
few occasion's with the old timers. 

I have a particular recollection o' one 
morning when the thermometer stood at twen- 
ty below and my friend Charlie proposed a 
c'oyote hunt. I acquiesced at once and we lost 
no time in making our arrangements. With 
five (logs in leash we started, the cnsp air 
making our l>lood tingle with new energy. 

After driving five miles Charlie pulled up 
the team and remarked: "No\v use your eyes 
for one of the fellows I know saw a coyote 
here yesterday." 

Carefully 1 glanced rOund and by the tune 
the horses stopped I caught a glimpse of the 
-ame. The animal was just on the edge of 
a coulee. Stepping out of the cutter I loosed 
the dogs and hied them aw^y. With a few 
eager yelpr. they were off. Old Killer in the 
lead and Jock a close second. Away over 
the level stretch and down, the coulee they 
rsn. the coyote well ahead. W^ith a quick 
turn the covote circled back to us. striving to 
gain the shelter of the coulee and soft snow. 
The endeavor was un.successfnl. Old Killer 
rushed him, and in a few seconds it wa.s all 
o\-cr. Only rarely does a coyote shQw.miich 
fij^bt and tliis was no exceptiqn io iiic «ciies5i, 

rule. ., ,, 1 ■ r .' ..J i ... 

Mostqf thc! fteopIc.-are.«iidpr; the impres- 
sion Ihat the first dog up does the killing. 
This is a mistaken idea. The leading dog 
simply runs into tU coyote, knocking it down 

the sense of injury, of personal affront, wdiicl 
.sometimes goads the sportsman to pit him- 
self again and again against a particular ani- 
mal or bird that obstinately refuses to allow 
itself to be killed is a matter of less general 
cognition. Most ihooting men, however, are 
familiar with this type of grudge, the intensity 
of which is, curiously enough, usually m in- 
verse ratio to the size of the animal that 
causes it. Why this should be so I am not 
prepared to say. unless it is that trifles are 
rather more apt to inspire iU-will than things 
of greater dignity ; but there is no question-, 
ing the fact that there are times w-hen noth- 
ing exceeds the power of an utterly insignifi- 
eanl creature lo obsess a- with the grim 
rpsolve to scatter its anatomy in infinitesimal 
fragments oxct the Iduuscapc. or ji'.mGC. per 
ish in the attempt. 

It is. of course, sadly humbling to human 
self esteem to have to acknowledge, even to 
oneself, that some wretched animal, wdiose 
onlv interest in your sight is. likely enough. 
its 'ability to flo".t you.with.impunity, should 
have the'power to rouse within you an all-con- 
suming thirst for its life-blood; but. as a set- 
off to this rather negative humiliation, there is 
the positive exultation, the fierce glow of sav- 
age joy. which is the unholy reward of vic- 
tory. Whether, given the power to choose, it 
vvo'uld be worth while to go through so much 
to gain -so brief a gratification may be argu- 
able; but there can be no doubt that, having 
suffered the vexation of spirit, the moment 
when our grudge is satisfied pays us for all 
that has gone before.' 

Such, at least, has been my experience; and 
I have nourished some remarkably robust 
grudges since the day when, as a youngster 
of 9, I tore down about 20ft. of stone wall to 
get at an impudent chipmunk, to which I had 
taken an unreasonable dislike. I failed to get 
the chipmunk on that occasion, but I got 
a sound thrashing instead, and it was as much 
because the memory of the licking rankled in 
my mind, as from any ill will I bore the chip- 
munk, that during tlie rest of my holidays I 
made its life such an endless round of terror 
that it must have been almost as'bappy as I 
was when at last a well-aimed bullet from 
my catapult put a violent end to its harassed 


It was. no doubt, because of the boundless 
capacity of youth to suffer and enjoy that the 
gratification of my thirst for vengeance on that 
innocent chipmunk was perhaps the keenest 
satisfaction I have ev^er felt at the successful 
paying-off of old. acores. But there was a 
woodchuck! T blush now wdicn I think of it, 
and fain would erase the incident from my 
memory. But facts are stubborn burrs, and 
this one sticks fast, reminding me that I, a 
man grown, once spent a whole fortnight in 
the hottest part of a hot summer trying to out- 
wit a wily old 'chuck that had made it.«» burrow 
in the middle of an old pasture, where the 
nearest cover was out of gun-range. 

Half the countryside had shot at that 
woodchuck unavailingly. and the other half

the time with my uncle, on whd!*e land the 
burrow was, and it whose fiendish suggtw^'on 
I was ihttoduced to the aniffial by a diab^ical 
"coiisin. I was told ,as.a sort of exctt«t l0r its 
presence, that th« .woodchuck poMti¥# *«^^ 

tered a considerable portion of its anatomy 
over the scene of frequent human discom- 
fiture and final triumph. 

On mature reflection. I am disposed to be- 
lieve that this woodchuck was the most- de 
moralizing influence that ever disturbed the 
serenity of a naturally angelic disposition. 
But a coyote can incite almost to madness. I 
was in the \\'est in the early "nineties," partly 
on business, partly for pleasure, and on the 
wav home, at the peremptory invitation of an 
old' school chum. I spent a fortnight at the 
H.E. Ranch, where cattle and coyotes were 
the cl'.ief scenic features. 

These latter animals at first afforded me 
considerable amusement. We .shot several 
from the ranch verandah as they played around 
a haystack near the corrals, but it was nn- 
r.ertr-iin work, owing to the distance. I was i 
using a 45-70 Government Winchester, with 
the 500 gr! bullet, an arm that does not endear 
ilselV to the shoulder; whileAlr. Ogilvic. the 
owner of the ranch, used a worn-out 45-90- 
single-shot rifle that was fairly accurate up to 
300 yards, but was liable to hit almoj|gi||H^ 
of ihe landscape at gicaU-i raiiges.-^ipBipipiBBr 
At the range at which we were shooting, 
however, and with a coyote for a target, one 
rifle was about as good as the other, and at 
the end of the first week our scores were near- 
ly equal— Mr. Ogilvie's two and mine three. 
Then on Sunday, while I was making a call at 
our nearest neighbor, ten miles away,^ Mr. 
Ogilvie killed two coyotes with two consecu- 
tive shots — a really remarkable incidence of 
luck, which evidently exhausted our credit 
with Providence, for thereafter, although". we 
fired away much ammunition, it was a long 
time before either of us secured another vie 

There was one coyote, bigger than any of 
the others, that tried our tempers sorely. His 
impudence was prodigious. A coyote is said 
to be a cross between a wolf and the devil, but 
this particular coyote was apparently a pure 
strain of the latter. He knew human tricks 
from A to Z. and had resources in reserve 
against many tTiat man had never thought of. 
At last we began to lose patience. And 
wdien men on a lonely ranch begin to lose pa- 
tience with what they cannot get at they are 
very apt to rend what is within their reach. 
So the ranch-house began an abode of discord. 
We wrangled over the veriest trifles; and 
ever that coyote, like an animated King 
Charles' head, kept getting into our argu- 
ments. FMnally we could do Mttle else than 
glare at each 'other,, what time we were not 
absorbed in the mutual interest of. vvasting 
good ammunition at the coyote, which daily 
added .original items to its programme of mv- 

At that time the new high-power, small- 
bore rifle was just being introduced to sports- 
men, and Mr. Ogilvie's brother was inspired to 
send him one. A cow-puncher from a neigh- 
boring ranch brought it from the railway one 
grey afternoon 'when the Chinook was veiluig 
the nearby foothills with thaw-haze, and we 
tried it at increasing distances in the gathering .^^ , 

twilight. Skeptical at first of the ^l'optm|^} to gOl^ 
qualities of so small a catibre, our prenmmaTy 
range was 100 yards. Result: A bull's-ey'* 
Other targets at 200 and 300 yards served 
augment our confidence, and after a s*'^ 

look tt-each other, we i«cked 9p tke 

■ 1. 

and since I derived no other benefit from the. 
episode. I may as well secure what psychologi- 
cal good 1 ca'n by a belated humbling of my- 
self at the confessional. 

This is how it happened. In company with 
two friends from Nev/ York. I was spending 
_Ahe,winter of i8oi -^- in thp. North wood s, our^ 

stndv iiic wilderneW in nf^ard^r moodsji 
But,' of course, a little shooting did not comi 
amiss, and we 'tended our three lines of traps, 
aggregating ninety miles in length, with bu.«;- 
ness-likc regularity. We had a comfortable 
^4^,g eamp on a dcadwater,.sixty miles from the, 
nearest settlement, and here for month.s on 
end. we lived the life of primitive backwoods- 
men. For next-door neighbors we had twi.> 
trappers, whose range embraced the head- 
waters of our stream, from whom we received 
occasional visits; and at irregular intervals on-*, 
or another of us did the twenty odd miles on. 
snowshoes to a lumber camp to fetch our 
mail, which was brought in to that point once 
a week by tote-sled. In this wise we passed 
the time very pleasantly till after the main Iqg 
drive on the river, and it was just when the 
ice was beginning to break up in the lake, two 
miles below our camp, that I spent an entire 
afternoon nursing one of the most unprofit- 
able grudges that ever made the world seein 
well lost in the pursuit of it 

'ri->» inr-ider* Vipo-an rhns: Mv comoanions 
having left camp early to bring in some di.s- 
tant traps, I spent part of the morning pitching 
our canoes, which had weathered ill under 
their brush shelter, and then took my rifle out 
for an airing, not so much in the hope of see- 
ing anything worth shooting at that season of 
the year as for the companionship of the iron. 
To men living practically alone in the forest a 
gun becomes almost a living presence, and I 
can imagine that the feel of its weight in th>'. 
arm-crook is as comforting to the hunter as 
the cling of his lady's hand is to the arm ot 
the lover. 

Wandering somewhat aimlessly through 
the woods, in rather a good-by mood, 
for we were "going out" very shortly, and this 
walk was .therefore, in the nature of a solemn 
leave-taking. T came out presently on the shore 
of the lake, still ice-covered, save for a narrow 
strip of open water .some 200 yards off shore. 

where the lake began to feel the "pull" of the 
outlet. A stiff wind was blowing snappy Httle 
waves across this lane towards me, and bob- 
bing gaily up and down close to the ice on 
the^'hither side was a pent-looking duck, at 

t . r 1. : -1- ^^£*-r>*-^rs,A ^-^rsrs^ ■.-'^ n 1 cKort anrl 

1 thought only of how good that fowl would 
taste served up smoking hot on the morrow. 

Of course, duck shooting at 200 yards with 
a 45-70 bullet is apt to be unsatisfactory work, 
even if you hit the duck, which is unlikely; but 
1 had subsisted on pork and beans until even a 
fragmentary duck strongly appealed to my 
appetite. So I laid my barrel across a con- 
venient "blow down" at the edge of the tim- 
ber, took a careful aim, and loosed the trigger, 
making a beatitiful line shot that kicked up the 
water iust over the back of the fowl. 

Somewhat surprised that the duck did not 
fly (as indeed I was to see it there, anyway), 
but presuming it to be one of those freaks 
which the sportsman encounters now and

hav« been so imposed as to encourage 
people to raise or to make as much 
as possible in our own country. In Mon-

many other cities there are large sugar, 
cotton, tobacco, paper, boot and yhoe or 
other factories. In the Kootenays tjilver, 
lead and copper are amelted as well as

in the long years wlilch have passed 
since .losepli r, later was born in a 
little English village In 1827, no one 
has done so much good as he. When 
the young surgeon went to practice In 
an Fidlnburgh hospital, thousands of 
people died every year because of the 
Inflammation that followed operations. 
Many more died of diseases that might 
have been evired hut for the dread < % ] 
the surgeon's knife. Dr. Lister found 
that the Inflammation was caused by 
the tiny living things that found their 
way into the open wound. He discover-

wounds could be dressed that would 
prevent the entrance of these dlsea-se 
germs. More tli.'^n tha,t he taught u ic-

HOW tlnr Vm* 4l* rw\ Uam mum^ 

Once upon a time there was a ver.\, 
verv small fish called a Mummy Chug, 
and" he lived In the great ocean close 
beside the other sea things.— and whales 
and the lobsters and the codfishes. They 
were all much larger and more import- 
ant than he. But the Mummy Chug, if 
he were so small, had very large ideas 
about himself. 

He used to lie in the shallow water by 
the beach and watch his fins glisten Iri 
the sunshine -tnd he thought that all 
the children at play on shore had come 
down Just expressly to look at him. 
He thought, too, that he should like to 
go up on the sand to chow them hi« 
fins closer. He would really have gone, 
too, except that he was afraid the ocean 
would not be able to get along Without 

"Why did you not grow a tall like 
mine?" the Mummy Chug asked a lob- 
ster one day. But his voice was so tiny 
that the lobster did not hear him. 

"Why have you no glittering fins like 
mine?" he called one day to a huge 
whale that was so far out at sea it 
could not possibly have heard anything 
less than a fog horn. But the Mummy 
Chug was sure that the lobster and the 
whale had not replied because they had 
no proper answers ready, and he was 
.still quite contented with himself. 

One day the little Mommy Chug 
thought and thought for a long while, 
inen ne iii«.u« ui> «•»« .***.*%• . — .--«.. 
thing. He thought that such an impor- 
tant little fish as he was not safe in the 
great ocean. 

"Just fancy If I got a fishhook in mv 
mouth!" he said to himself. 

"Or suppose the lobster men shOuU 
bait one of his pots with me! 

"I'm certs'"'y i" great danccer everv 
day here in tho sea. Perhaps the 'waves 
win miss me when I am gone, but they 
will have to get along as best they can 
■without me. I am quite decided. 1 shaP 
go up and sit on the beach awhile." 

.«?o the Mummy Chug called to tin* 
tide, and he said: 

"O tide, will you please take me ur 
on the beach? 1 want to sit on the s'and 
for the rest of my life. 1 am tired of 
the ocean. 1 want to try another way 
of living!" 

"Oh. you foolish little Mummy Chug!" 
roared the surf. "Do you think you can 
live anywhere but in the water? Well, 
come along! .lump up on my back." 

So the Mummy Chug got up on top of 
the surf, and the tide took him In to 

The prince's parents have all along 
been keenly desirous that he should take 
up his naval duties seriously, and It 
is strictly In accordance with their ma-

applied generally throughout the service, 

and not excused a single duty, however ., ^

life of an ordinary cadet, and has shared

Captain Campbell, who had charge of 
His Royal Highness on board the Hin- 
dustan, said: 

"The prince has cheerfully and effl- 
clently discharge^ the 'ess agreeable 
t,r< well as tho most agreeable of his 
tasks. The other day, for example, he 
was bearing his share In 'coaling ship." 
and you know what that mean*. He has 
worked hard in the gunroom and at drill 
and has among other things, been as- 
sociated with the ending of small armed

ience of the noil' side of an Inspection

it was very strange for a flsh, espec-

We hjcar much about th.: decline of chiv- 
alry, and it must be admitted that m these 
days there does not appear to be very nuicii 
chivalry in evidence. This at any rate seems 
to be the case in our own country. In Amer- 
ica chivalry is not yet extinct, nor is pohtencss 
to a woman a lost art. Every woman am 
told is a "little queen" in America, while on 
this side she is usually more like a little slave. 
But what do we understand by cluvalry 1| 
may mean much or little, wc k\v uv-t r.ncrprci 
it alike In the ceremony of makin<^- kuighls 
about the vear Si(> when King Arthur reii,Mie<l 
in Britain, the brave and gallant candidates 
who desired to receive the Order of Knighl- 
hood were required to swear before God and 
their Prince "on the Holy Book'^ to keep tne 
oath of fealtv, and they were commanded: 
"Ye shall also swear with all your for^^e and 
power to maintain and defend all ladies, gen^ 
tlewomen. orphans, widows, women distressed 

woman Avliow^^^pert of help or protection 
could count upon getting it instead of l)emg. 
as in these davs, persecuted and slandered and 
alas! often robbed and injured simply because 
of her helplessness and unprotected condition. 
If (;bivalry means wdiat the above oath sped- 

il u.ed to be, but just a little delighted to 
play the old and eternal game ot tne cat wit"

lUit joking apart every woman hkcs to 
look her best, and she should try to put her 
looking into practice. It has been said that 
there is more moral support m a well cut

] Hake it that it does mean that,, then certainly 

chivalry is non-cxisLeut in the England of our 
day. Whatever remnant -^qf chivalry there 
may be left, whatever trace could be found 
that such a thing as chivalry ever did exist 
in reality and not as a mere chimera of the 
imagination then it nuist be found or at any 
rate looked for among our own sex and not the 
opposite. To hark back to the oath taken by 
the "Knights of the Round Table'' it appears 
to have been a very solemn function, and 
they were sworn to observe the following 
articles (among others far too numerous to 
quote.) Eirst ' that' every Knight should be 
well armed and furnished to undertake any 
enterprise wherein he was employed by sea or 
land, on horseback or foot. "That he should 
be ever prcst to assail all tyrants and oppres- 
soreof people." "That he should protect 
widows and maidens, > restore children 
to their right; re-possess such persons as 
xvere without cause exiled; and with all his 
force maintain the Christian faith." "That he 
should be. a champion for the public weal, and 
as a lion repulse the enemies of his country. 
"That if anv complaint were made at the court 
of this mighty King of injury or oppression, 
then some Knight of the Order whom the 
King should appoint ought to revenge the 
same." "That if any lady or gentleman, 
widows or maiden, or other oppressed person 
did pre.sent a petition declaring they<vvere. or 
had been, in thi.s or other nation, injured or 
offered dishonor they should be graciously 
heard, and without delay one or more Knights 
should be sent to take revenge." Xow, all 
these rules are -inrely most admirable in inten- 
tion, and if some of' these ordinances of chiv- 
alry obtained in our day we would probably 
be far happier women. \\> mSy it is true fmd 
young men who profess their readiness to re- 
pulse the enemies of their country if not "as a 
lion" at any rate as a "terrier," but I doubt

ined their claims to be adjudged siifficiently 
chivalrous to be worthy of Knighthood, and— 
alas! that it should be so— I have imt found 
one! Good men. clever men. high principled 
men. conscienious men, honorable men, kind- 
ly, generous and benevolent men there are in 
plenty, but a chivalrous man 1 have never had 
■ the good fortune to meet. The genus is ex- 
tinct, as is the Order of Chivalry. If there is 
a trace of chivalry in existence yet it will be 
found I repeat not in man. but in woman.

My Best Friend 

The feminine portion of the coinmuniiy arc 
without doubt sorely tempted to be ])'enscd 
when they are considered as a stumbling 
block to the peace of mind of the rest of the 
world. No beautiful debutante ever failed to 
be satisfied, for instance, at eclipsing the rest 
of lier contemporaries in the ball room. .She 
may perhaps pretend to herself that she was 
sorry that her dearest rival insisted upon ap- 
pearing in a crude and unbecoming shade of 
pink which quarrelled violently with her au- 
burn colored hair, but inwardly there is an un- 
admitted .glint of contentment at the deplor- 
able result. 

Our heroic frieds. the militant suffragettes 
are likewise not dismayed to be a thorn in the 
side of the reigning Government, and the more 
prickly this can be the better pleased they are. 
And then turning for a moment to a more sen- 
timental side of the question, what woman is 
not -.stcretlv delighted to up»et the mental 
equilibrium' of the mere male? The talc of 
-r^s..^mmm «;«hf«. onA walciniT hours of aucuish. 
cauaied through the unkindness of some harsh 
but fair one, never failed to fall pleasantly 
upon that fair one's ears however much she 
mav protest against the suggestion. In fact. 
at times no doubt the fair sex is just a httlc 

mind of herself. The lady of forty however 
who lias rr:u-hcd that Stage in .life without 
having learned enough philosophy to ensure 
her own comparative happiness stjikcs one as 
a sorry creature indeed. 

We are learning wisdom in many things, 
and one of the most pleasing signs of the 
times is that strong mindedness no longer is 
inseparably associated with a dowdy appear- 
ance. .Strong mindedness of course is a much 
abused term since every girl who has got suf- 
ficient pluck to think for herself and act on 
her personal convictions is likely to be labelled 
with the title, if not by her friends and com- 
panions, probably by the despairing head of 
the family, who sees the family roof being 
more deserted day by day by his "revolting 
slaughters." The truth is that aU women who 
are' not merely mechanical automata have re- 
alized tha't a good personal appearance is one 
half the battle of life, and that possibly one 
half is to rank it in too low a computation. 
The wise woman theret5)re give's as much 
thought and time to thc'dctails of her toilet 
as she can possibly spare, for she knows that 
any neglect in this way is not lightly for- 

.•Ml women who really want to look then- 
best know that in three details of their ward- 
robe thev as far as possible above 
reproach' In the first place there is the im- 
portant item of gloves, in the second the ii'.i 
less important matter of footwear, and in the 
third the all important subject of corseting. If 
these are right most of the rest will take care 
of itself. It is secondary matters such as 
these which are in point of fact very far from 
l)eing secomlary in actual .reality that tiic 
dainty woman displays her admirable fastidi- 
ousness of taste, and by such matters do the 
discriminating judge her. In these days when 
everything is planned for the complete con- 
venience of the shopper it is an easy matter to 
huv the best of everything, and in .many in- 
stances this does not necessarily imply the 
asking of a prohibitive price. .\ little judg- 
ment is all that is needed, both a^ to the ar- 
ticle itself and where to get it. When this is 
not lacking either by reason of our own wit 
and resource or by that of others, all will be 
well indeed. 

The reign of the straight frock with a 
raised waist and Magyar bodice still continues 
the even tenor of its way, although the new- 
est Parisian frocks have a decidely fuller ap- 
[)earance, with flounces or quillings, and the 
fichu arrangement might more aptly be de- 
scribed as brctelies for soft materials are drap- 
ed in this fashion the shoulders and 
cross ligH|ly at the front, wdiile the backs are 
graduatetf off quite narrow, and fasten under 
some .species of trimming. 

A tunic overskirt of ninon, with a fichu ar- 
rangement, to correspond, is a most useful 
possession, especially if it be .smartly trimmed 
with wide insertion, showing silk and tinsel 
embroiderv and the inevitable fringe, or ap- 
plique with grouped floral motifs on net. Toi- 
lettes in black and wdiite or black and gold 
are worn by quite young women, but pale col- 
ors softlv draped with white or ivory ninon. 
and displaying much beading and elaborately 
designed medallions and fringes, are the der- 
nier cri for the young. 

The very abbreviated tunic or overskirt is 
much trimmed or pretty on a ?hort skirt, but 
the long one is often exaggerated to absurdity 
the beaded fringe sweeping the floor below 
the skirt. The prettiest fashion is to have a 
moderately long tunic over a scanty trained 
skirt : the skirt with a very narrow tail by no 
means long, which does not spread, and . is 
usually finished in a point, the tunic sloped at 
the back, very closely fitted, and almost cov- 
ering the skir't at the' front and .sides. 

Some new lace gowns are fii+ished with at 
large ruche and worn over av clinging founda- 
tion, the ruChed hem being barely one and a 
half yards round. Som^ niches arc innkcd ouL 
in the old style, others have narrow fine lace, 
and snch skirts are invariably short; in fact, 
two or three inches off the ground. In satin 
with ivorv lace the effijct is smart whrn com- 
pleted "by a. satin Ijodicc with fichu drapings 



of lace, and some vivid color introduced either 
in velvet or by Oriental embroideries. 

Evening \vraps reverse the old order of 
things, and are tight and scanty below and 
exceedingly voluminous above; and the long 
evening coats have three or four oiicnings 
round the skirt, to enable the wearer to 
a trained gown. Exquisite brocades are cm- 
ploved in manv ways, but chiefly for trained 
gowns relievc'd by lace and emlu-oidcry. 
Young in style and exceedingly quaint are the 
short waisted bodices running off at. the back 
into a narrow train, the front finished with lit- 
tle tabs which fall like a tiny bas^iue from the 
waist over a skirt of soft satin draped with 
ninon. Silk, canvas and semi-transparent 
gauzes, heavily brocaded with velvet, are used 
in similar fashion, or form a ])icturesque short 
bodice with a deep band or border to the short 
skirt, which peeps below a fringed overdrap- 
ery of some ethereal fabric. 

The entire absence of waist is most notice- 
able on evening frocks, but the straight silhou- 
ette is more apparent with short skirts, as the 
long ones taper off and appear to draw in 
round the ankles and any fulness or superflu- 
ity is noticeable in the narrow trained back 
alone. Wide scarves are worn althost in the 
fashion of a transparent coat, and one or two 
Parisian models are actually arranged with 
kimono armholes. and have quite the effect in 
\t, front of a long ninon cotat.

"What is so great as friendship?"— Em«r- 

No one ever wrote more beautifully on the 
subject of that tic which is the strongest that 
the huntau race is capable of. friendship, than 
he who asked that question with which this 
article is headed. Emerson asked, "What is 
so great as friendship?" and we, everyday 
people, often feel inclined to answer his ques- 
tion with another. What is friendship?^ Of 
what docs true friendship consist? Now-a- 
day one seems to have so many friends, and 
yet, if vvc paitse to think, how many of thes^- 
are acquaintances only? To quote Emerson 
again: "A friend is a person with whom I 
may be sincere. Before him 1 can think 
aloud." With how many oi Our numerous 
acquaintances can vvc be sincere; before how 
manv of these can we "think aloud?" Ac- 
quaintances are delightful; a targe acquaint- 
ance, like a large correspondence, is fascmat- 
ing to those who have time, and whose mclm- 
aticms are gregarious. But all of us need 
friends, or at least a friend. Friendship, it 
seems to mc, is an essential to human happi- 
ness. One cannot conceivifc^f more piteous 
terms in which to speak of oiv&Viellow man 
than are summed up in the words "friendless"' 
and "outcast." It is easy to make friends m 
some cases, There are many people to wnom 
we are ;iaturally attracted upon first acqudnt* 
ance. . One sometimes experiences almot| 4 
sensation of having known intimately %ttil fof 
a lone time people, to, whom one has bttit W^

one may sincerely like, and with whoitv^ne 
mav become quite familiar but who still tc:_ 
main, z.viA always will, outside the magic 
gates which are unlocked only by the golden 
key of friendship, there is som^tlvng about 
real friendship that cannot be forced, and tttat 
never can be broken. While our friend* 
may do and say an infinite number of things 
which may annoy and irritate Us to the point 
of distraction, while we may see their faults a 
hunch-cd fold more clearly because of the love 
we bear them, vet we arc not estranged on 
this accr.unt. there is some depth of unfathoni- 
ed feeling which g^-c^.s far deeper than any of 
tliese superficialtics ; it is impcsvlblc to con- 
ceive of crit,icisni of one's friends with mutual 
acquaintances! \\ seems to mc that if one 
has a friend, one is always reluctant to dis- 
CU.SS him even favorably ' with other people. 
There is something so intimate about real 
friendsliip. s(nTiethihg .SO • ^^'iv:''l!y personal, 
which can ne-'Cr affect anyone but the two 
people concerned, .\noiher sure .sign^ of real 
friendship is its unselfishness. Emerson 
savs: "f do then with my friends as I do 
w:i'th ray books. I would have tiicm where 1 
"ctn'Hnd^icmv'lTufl'serdo . . 

course the ideal friend is alwa\> one to whom 
we turn when we need them. an<l we know- 
that the ideal friend is always there and Avould 
feel as hurt if, we did not turn to them for 
help as wc should in like case. But there i.s 
the perpetual "use" some people make of 
others, wdiich'ife^ as far removed from Tne'ifd- 
shi]) as is the stiii from this globe. Jealousy 
too has lio part whatever in true; friendship ; 
for we arc quite .-ecurc oi "Ur triends. if wc 
are not how can they be real friends at all.'' 
However wc may have rcal!\' friendly feeling.^ 
towards a person -.vho may uot appear to re- 
ciprocate tiicm mt'.ch. Emerson seems to 
think it quite possible "to carry a friendship 
grcatlv on one side, without tlue correspond-

had to submit to the tenderness of friendship

The offering =1'- ^^i<^ Victoria 
Theatre for Tuesday, February 
20, will be "The Red Rose." a 
musical comedy in tliree acts, by 
Marry li. and' Robt. B. Smith, 
with music by Robert Hood Bow- 
ers, which has made a sensational 
hit in New York City at the Globe 
Theatre. The production is un- 
der the personal direction of John 
C. Fisher, the noted producer of 
"Florodora" and "Tlve Silver 

Slipper' and many other bi_e 

«^5=^musicat successes. The company is 
unusually large and is said tb in- 
clude some stunning young 
women. There are twenty-eight 
musical numbers, with a variety 
<if popular song hits and others of 
greater musical worth. -Fronv- a 
.scenic and costume point of yiew, 
"The Red Ro|p" is said to be a 
sensation. Money has been spent 
galore.. It is, in short, a dness- 
maker's and milliner's delig^it. 
The stor y u following tale : 

A young Aia^....ui studying"' arC 
falls in love with a model, Lola. 
His wealthy father objects to the 
marriage. Stormy scenes follow. 
but in the end, Dick Lorimer. the 
^•oung American, obtains same 
pictures taken by a moving pic- 
ture syndicate, showing the an- 
tics of the father with a young art 
student. This, coupled w4th the 
discovery that Lola is really a 
baron's daughter, -enables Lori- 
mer to overcome his father's ob- 
jections, and the last act ends 
with a scene reminiscent of 
"Sappho" when the student car- 
ries his fiancee up a flight of 
sleps and they wait?: away in true 
Viennese musical comedy style 
:'iid arc married. 

The cast includes some of the 
best known musical comedy art- 
i.-^ts and is said by those who 
sliould know to be on the whole 
superior to the one which played 
New York City. This is easy to 
understand, as it has not been or- 
ganized as a "road" show and 
will only be .seen in the larger 
Southern and Western cities. The 
cidy one and two night stands 
this company will play are those 
necessary to break jumps between 
tlie larger cities. ()nc of the fea- 
tures of the performance is the 
"Students' Glide," a sensational 
ancing number which is now the

musical play, no matter how weak 
it may' be in libretto or music. It 
i< difficult- to describe its charm 
;i;ul rcepiires to 'be seen to be ap- 

thrilling, while a faithful repro- 
duction of the grand salon of tlie 
Marble Palace of Count Ani- 
heim, with seductive ballet, "'The 
Dance of the llouris" from "La 
Giaconda," given as a concluding 
divertiscment of an evening's 
fete, are alrnost pleasing as arc the 
beautiful musical numbers of this 
grand lyric drama sung by the 
following soloists: Blanche Mor- 
rison in the soprano role of Arline. 
Hattie Belle Ladd as the (iypsy 

eousness. The comedy has creat- 
ed the biggest sensation ever re- 
corded, and will be seen at the 
Victoria Theatre Thursday. Feb. 


The repertoire of the famous 
classic actor, Robert B. Mantell, 
grow-, larger and more complete 
each year. Mr. IMantell this sea- 
son is appearing in "Julius Cae- 
sar." "Macbeth," "Merchant of 

Venice/' "Richelieu,' 

the ordinary comedy described by 
Alan Dale as "a laugh or a song 
hit every minute," and which 
played an all-summer run in Chi- 
cago following a four-months' en- 
gagement at the Globe Theatre, 
New York. Werbu & Lues^her 
engaged Miss Lloyd for the title 
role of the play, ti'iinking her the

The story 61."Little Miss Fix- 
It" deals with the joys and trials 
of Delia Wendell, a young wo- 
man who loves her husband so 
devotedly that she quarrels with 
him over a foolish trifle, and then 
determines to forget her sorrows 
by making others happy. So she 
starts a wholesale matchmaking 
campaign and tries to "fix it" for 
everybody who is in love, or, who 
she thinks ought to be. This fur- 
nishes material for numerous 
amusing situations, interspersed 
with- tuneful songs, duets and 
choruses, winding up -with the de- 
sirable happy ending. 

In the strong supporting. com- 
pany are IJonel Walsh, "Frederic 
Santley. Frank Shannon. Joseph 
C. Lane. Grace Field, Nellie Mal- 
colm, Pauline de Lorme, Annie 
Buckley and C.rac^ Brown.

ardent suit. But with the aid of 
an aged and uncanny gardener, 
who invokes magic at the moment 
of the blooming of a century 
plant, the lover becomes a mythi- 
cal prince for the night and woos 
and wins the maid at risk of his 
life. Beauiiiul slaj^c pictures are 
essentially a part of the interest, 
and Mc>n H. Singer 'is said to 
have given "The Prince of To- 
night" one of the most gorgeou.= 
scenic productions ever seen^ on 
tour. Among the many song hits 
to be heard are "I Can't Help

Faversham. "Youth possesses in- 
finite possibilities, and if is the 
bounden duty of those of us who 
have had sufficient experience to 
foster budding talent, where wc 
find it, in a spirit purely of al- 
truism, and for the furtherance, of 
our art. The gradual disappear- 
ance of ^he old-tini^ *tOck' Com-

sible for newcomers on the stage 
to aquire the thorough tutelage 
which is necessary to the best ful-

tion to help, should do everything

A n«w "Bohemian Girl" comes 
"to the \'ictoria Theatre on Mon- 
day. February 26. This up-to- 
.'.,'te revival of. Balfe's master- 
]iiecc, which proved one of the 
truly great successes of last sea- 
son.'must not be confounded with 
■,r.\y previous jirnduction of this 
r.;)era in .\merica. The Aborn 
Opera Company in this particu- 
lar case is said to have prepared 
an ensemble of extraordinary 
magnitude and brilliancy, enlist- 
ing the services of a 'full grand 
npera complement of upwards of 
one htmdred people for this, their 
twentieth century revival of the 
Paris version (in English) of 
"'I'he P.ohemian Girl," especially 
prepared for the famous operatic 
festival of the French Second Em- 
jiire of 1869, and which v.'on for 
the brilliant Jrish composer, 
Michael William Balfe, the decor- 
ation of Chevalier of the Legion 
nf Honor, bestowed upon him by 
Napoleon IIL No expense has 
been spared in providing a l.ivish 
stage environment. 

And all the exquisite lyric gems, 
including those fine old airs. 
"Then You'll Remember Me," "1 
Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls," 
"The Heart Bowed Down," etc.. 
are promised with a stage spec- 
tacle of great magnitude — into 
which many novel and up-to-date 
features have been skilfully intro- 
duced. Among the original 
scenes are a Fair or Kermess of 
Old Bohemia, presenting a char- 
act«ristic array of troubadours, 
dancing girls, fortune tellers, a 
troupe of real Tzgani or Gypsy 
Acrobats, a cavalca<le of hor.^es, 
etc. The high ty dramatic episode 
of the Gypsy Chief .< escape over 
the mountains with the stolen 
child* and the cuvaH^rs in full 
pursuit on horseback, is said to be 

The Ernest Glover production 
of Sir Vv^alter Scott's immortal 
masterpiece, "Rob Roy," will be 
ia Til e attraction 
for two nights, Tuesday and 
Wednesday, February 27 and 28. 
Mr. Glover's family has been 
associated vyith the Scotch pto- 
duction of this famous play for 
the past century, and the coming 
Victoria |)roductiou has been 
planned and carried out in every 
detail exactly the same as the 
notable Theatre Royal Glasgow 

Some sixty peojjle appear in 
the cast, and the principals have 
for the most part been brought 
from Scotland in order that per- 
fection might be gained, and it 
is a notable fact that there is not 
a Scotch character in the whole 
cast which is not played by a na- 
tive born Scot. A whole carload 
of scenic and mechanical effects 
is carried by the organization, 
and the entire prodtiction is said 
to be the most magnificent on 

Mr. Glover is offering the first 
operatic version of the play 
whic!i has ever been given profes- 
sionally on the .'\merican conti- 
nent, and much interest is mani- 
fest in the attraction even at this 
early date.

Scenes and Characters in "The Red Rose/' which comes to the Victoria Theatre, Tuesday, Feb. ao ^ 

.^ who has won 
considerable success as a society 
entertainer is Mr. Sydney Grant. 
who will appear at the Empress 
Theatre during this week. 
?vir. Grant is one of the most 
pLOpitlar entertainer)? jof :.New 
York's "400." He possesses a 
personality rarely excelled. His 
stories are told in a refined and 
intelligent manner, and he has a 
style w hich .se ems- io add greatly 
to their effectiveness. His work 
is said to show a delightful de- 
parture from the usual act of its 
ind. This act consists of stories 
and mimicry, the latter he does 
with w^onderful originality. His 
appearance at the Emprcs?: will 
! no doubt furnish a splendid 15 
minutes to patrons of this popu- 
lar playhouse. 

Les Gougets, who will be seen 
at the Empress this week, 
come from Paris for a tour of the 
Sullivan & Considine circuit, witli 
high recommendations, having 
been for a year at the top of the 
bill, at the Olympia Theatre. 
They have many novelties to of- 
fer musically, including what is 
s.iid to be the largest French 
horn in the world. From this in- 
strument they give a concert 
equal in volume, it is said, to an 
orchestra of 40 pieces. 

c m Uisning isomc snappy Gsa- 
logue. clever dances and several 
songs is the offering served in 
palatable form by Merritt and 
Douglas, two natty appearing 
young men, who depend upon 
their talents and not their make- 
up for their success. Both are 
.■eaid to have good voices: and. 
plenty of native wit, which, com- 
bined with long stage experience, 
has placed them well along to- 
ward the top of the ladder as 
coming comedians. 

Empress patrons are assured of 
a rare vocal treat when Phil Ben- 
nett makes his initial appearance 
before them. He is possessed of 
a most remarkable clear lyric ten- 
or -voice, whicti he has trained tt» 
perfection. He was for yeaf.s a 
favorite in comic opera, but 
vaudeville offered better induce- 
ments and less strenuous work. 
He has received a remarkable 
■ amnnnt of press flattery since he 
began his tour of the Sullivan &' 
Considine circuit. Notwithstand- 
ing his long operatic career^ he is 
said to have preserved his re- 
markable volume without in any 
way sacrificing hi^ sweetness of 

T.tip R<»nnino^ton Brothers, a 
couple of exponents of advanced 
physical culture, come to the 
Empress next week in artistic ex- 
hibitions of strength and aero-- 
batics. They are two splendidly 
developed young men, and after 
several years as features at one 
of the big circuses, they are 
making their first appearance' in 
VaudcA'ille. They are said to 
have some thrillers in the Way of 
feats of strength and cndtar- 

Although George M. Cohan has 
for years asked the public not to 
take his stage productions seri- 
ously, but only aS a means of 
amusement, his writing of such a 
comedy masterpiece as "Get- Rich- 
Quick Wallingford" has changed 
the playgoers' view of this popu- 
lar author-actor-producer. For 
though ".Wallingford" is one con- 
tinuous laugh, it also sounds a se- 
rious note and bears a message 
of inspiration. It preacnc^s^ tnai a 
good woman i« the most potent 
factor for good in the WiOt4d, and 
that a clever roan \% a foi61 iof de- 
parting from the path of right- 

Lear," "Hamlet," "Othello," "As

"Louis XL," and "Richard HI." 
fn these he idays the titje roles ex- 
cept in "Julius Caesar," wherein 
he is Brutus. In "As You Lil<e 
It" he plays, of course, Orlando. 
and in "Othello" alternates as the 
jealous Moor and lago. It \vill 
be observed that all with 
two exceptions are* by Shake- 
speare. Mr. Mantell will give a 
performance in this city at the 
Victoria Theatre, Wednesday, 
March 6. The play to be present- 
ed will be made known later.

Actual Brake Test 

EA.CH WATERLOO BOY Gasoline Engine is submitted to an actual brake test to see that 
the engine Fill develop the horse power as rated. This test is prolonged to discover any defedivc 
material or workmanship in the engine. A record of the test can be furnished so that each cus- 
tomer may know the actual brake test of the engine he buys. 

We also test our engine in reference to fuel consumption. Each engine is sent out adjusted so 
that it is ready to run when uncrated. We use great thoroughness and care in testing our engines 

TPIE MIXER produces a perfect mixture of 
gasoline and air, gives the greatest power 
from the least gasoline. The suction of the 
piston draws the charge of gasoline mixed 
with air, into the cylinder. IT WORKS 

THE GOVERNOR is the centrifugal type, 
driven by gears positive in action, extremely 
sensitive, controls perfectly the speed of en- 
gine, regulates fuel supply to closest point 
of economy, saves batteries, igniter and fuel. 
The parts are few, simple and interchange- 
able. Can always be depended upon. Our 
governor is our gi-eat ECOMOMIZER. 

THE OPEN JACKET requires only from 
two to three gallons of water per horse power. 
Old style from 20 to 30 gallons. It is very 
compact, enables you to make the engine frost 
proof by using oil in hopper and greatly saves 
fuel. No system of cooling a gasoline engine 
is as satisfactory as the open jacket, 

THE SPEED LEVER works on the 
same principle as a throttle on a locomotive, 
by moving the speed lever you can increase or 
decrease speed of the engine from 50 to 75 
revolutions. This can be done while the en- 
gine is running. It works in close conjunc- 
tion with the governor in saving the fuel. We 
count our speed lever oiie of the SPECIAL 
and most valuable features of our engines. 

THE IGNITER is the make and break style, special composition points, trip and hammer case 
hardened, easily taken apart, cannot be put together wrong. Parts interchangeable. Uses bat- 
teries only when gas is ready to be ignited.
