Glacial Movements.
A few years ago, says ihe Rossland
Miner, geologists confidently asserted
that at one period in tiie woilus history a great ice cap came nun iug down
from the polar regions, and swept over
North America as fur south as latitude
38, carrying with it great boulders—
which lie ihout on   lopes ,md  hilltops
to this day tu prove it—and Bcrai ching
the record of its movement upon tbe
clitfs and ledges.   Then   ibis   icecap

We very much regret that the editor
of (he Now Denver "Ledge" has proved
conclusively lhat signs don't count,
otherwise Ihe size of our woodpile
would indicate a mild winter in 'the
Bouudary country,
The dangers of modern warfare are
insignificant when compared with an
Knglisli celebration, There were
more people killed at the reception
accorded the City of London (Kng.)
Imperial Volunteers upon their return
from South Africa, lhan during Ihe
two engagements of that regiment in
the Transvaal.
(he very fnceof it The rules oi ine
company may have been violated and
certain irregularities may have existed
but to give liiith to a report implicating nearly every C. P. R. employee hetween Rossland and Midway, is not
only making the paper publishing
such rot, appear ridiculous, hut is
grossly insulting to the railway em
ployees. 	
The American Customs officers not
only look neat in their official uniforms
of hlue with brass buttons, but strangers looking for one of these government servants cm distinguish them
from Ihe coinmo.i herd and need nol
mistake one of them for an ordinary
moital. Would il not be well fur tbe
Dominion government to imitate Uncle
Ham and provide uniforms for tbeir
collectors of tariff ?
A week ago last Thursday some one
stole a quart of communion wine from
at. Aldan's Cathedral, Toronto. Our
water bucket was purloined the same
evening. We are now convinced that
there are just ss black-hearted wretches
in lhe west as in the older provinces,
for a man that would steal from a'
printing oflice would swipe from a
church. Bothinstilulions are general
ly on the same financial if not on a
religious fooling.
At the last session of the Imperial
Parliament, Swift McNeil, an Irish
member, during the course of a speech
declared tbat "as brave a heart may
bent beneath the tunic of an Irish
Fusilier as beneath the kilt of a Gordon Highlander," Mr. McNeil is evidently of the opinion that the unatoniy
of a Highlander is dilferent from lhat
of an ordinary human lieing, otherwise he never would have'supposed
for a moment lhat a Highlander's
heart heal beneath bis kilt.
The moral atmosphere of €KWa||b is
becoming more severe each yenr:* The
other day Mrs. H. P. Colegrove, the
orlgifutor ot the divided skirt, as ap*
jilted to .equestrian purpose*, wbo
recently entered two horses for the
Chicago horse show, had her entries
reverted because she wished to:ap*g*-ai<
in the arena in a double barrelled
skirl. The Chairman of the .iuatfctal'
Committee said thut it was agreed that
no woman should wear IWo half skirts
without lieing joined together.and ride
astride in lhe ring. Leave tbe Windy
City Mrs. Colegrove aud com* to lbe
Boundary country, where yon won't
he ttimflammed. You can ride your'
horse any old way, and it doesn't
matter if yonr skirt has more apart*
litems tluin a tenement house.
Thu determination of womankind is
strikingly illustrated iu the Countess
"f Minto. Upon the occasion of his
first prorogation of Parliament Lord
Minto was threo minutes late. This
want of punctuality was occasioned by
his Excellency's four-in-hand state
carriage lieing obstructed hy three
heavy country wagons, hut tbe Countess of Minto Ib determined that never
again, while the hand of Minto holds
sway over this fair Doniinion, will
history repeats itself in this particular
instance, fur she is now spending enormous Bums of money in huilding a
good road in order that a more convenient toute may be obtained forthe
Governor General when he drives up
in his carriage to open Parliament.
There were only two ways of preventing a repel ii ion of Iiis Excellency's
tardiness, one was for him to start
three minutes earlier, the other wns to
build a good road so there would
he no chance of heing delayed on the
way— Lady Minto has chosen the
latter.
A number of daily papers throughout the province bave given credence
to the story of the G. P. R. bonus
ticket transactions, which are said lo
have been cartied on between Rossland
and Midway. One coast paper in
particular devoted seven columns, with
a three chapter beading of poster type,
to explaining how the "game" ws*
carried on. As fiction it would bave
been a very interesting article, but
when a story framed from the imaginative niind of a fever-brained detective
Is sprung upon the puhlic, It is not
appreciated, A "scoop" of this kind
is a discredit to any paper, We can,
however, understand a coast, paper
publishing this absurd account as they
are tar from where the supposed irregu
larilles are said to have been earned
on, and are ignorant of the circumstances, hut for a Rossland paper,
published in lbe town, where most of
the deception was supposed to bave
heen practiced, tn copy the article is
beyond oar comprehension. Does it
teem plausible that if these railway
employees wereguilt.y.or even supposed
to he gulfiyi ttiatthey would still lie
retained in thn employ of the C. P.R. ?
Nearly every Eastern paper we pick
up gives an account of tbe meeting of
the old boys of some town or ciiy in
the East.   A number of hoys from u
certain town, whom fate has caused to
take up their residence elsewhere, meet
together fur the purpose of having a
pleasant time; tales are told, songs are
sung, and reminiscences nf their early-
lives are exchanged, while a few of the
number, possessed of more nerve than
the others, though not always gifted
with oratorial  ability, make speeches
which are invariably of a nature lhat
reflect no discredit on tbe town which
they all atone.Ume called home. Bach
points with pride at having, at some
time in his life, been associated with
sucb a distinguished place,   A banquet
is prepared, wine is passed around, and
in the redness of the cup toasts are
drunk.   When one wants a drink he
proposes a toast and all drink to it-
grand scheme for getting a drink.   It
opens the toast cells of lbe brain and
allows them to flow as freely as promises from tho lips of a C. P. R. official.
It is misleading to state tbat these
meetings are composed entirely  of
hoys,  often men wbo have attained
quite an bonorable age take part in
them,   lt might prove of inlerest to at
least some of our readers to know
where this custom, which is becoming
so general, originated, and it is for this
purpose rather than to describe the
meetings themselves, that this article
is heing written.   There is a town is
Western   Ontario  called Strathroy,
which is noted, among other things,
for ita educational facilities, and we
think we can state, without fear of
successful contradiction, that there is
not another town in the whole Dominion that enjoys the distinction of heing
the early borne of so many prominent
men.   Here the Hon. Edward Blake
spent his hoyhood's days.   The Hon.
0. W. Ross, premier of Ontario, first
began life as a school teacher in a small
school a few miles distant from the
town.   Dr. W. H. Montague, formerly
Minister of"Agriculture, received his
early training at its public, schools, and
Hon. 0. H. Mackintosh at one time
edited one of its two newspapers.while
it was in this town that all the devils
in tbis office flrst learned to lisp their
littlr'-prayers and set type; though not
at the same time.'' Of ehui-sc like all
olher towns it **as unfortunate in Ial-

matriculating, attended the Toronto
University. Thus It wss, when they
realized how many of 'hem were from
the one town, that they decided to
have a meeting of the "Strathroy Old
Boys," and as it was represented by
such a lot of prominent men, some of
whose names have already lieen men
tinned, and such an enjoyable time was
spent, that olher towns held similar
meetings, and now the custom has become quite general. Last year a number of the hoys from the old town, who
are nnw at the coast, tiietat.yancouver
and devoted an evening to discussing
the pecullarities-which are many—of
the east, hut all decided that although
that country offers great advantages
in the way of five-cent heers, they
were tired of looking st tbe imprints
on Iheir hands caused by squeezing
the almighty copper. There are at
present In British Columbia at least
fifty boys from this Eustern town, ami
we would suggest that they follow the
example set by lhe few that mat in
Vancouver. The place of meeting
could lie some central place — say
Kamloops—and a two day's celebration
held. No doubt special rales could lie
obtained from Ihe railway,and we feel
sure that nearly all would make an effort to attend. It has often lieen wondered that there are no Strathroy old
girls, but this is easily explained, as
there are no "old girls" in Strathroy.
They are all young and so bave to
forego the pleasures afforded tbe boys
hy these meetings.
The Return of the Troops.
The seal on nur nationhood, are these
Strong men returning victors from
the war;
Up to the battle's  very front they
bore
Our country's bonor, till with every
breeze
Fame sang their valor round the seven
seas,
For us Ihey  braved death in Ihe
cannon's roar,
Many there were among them who
no more
Will see the loved homes 'neath out-
maple trees.
Throw wide thy gates, 0 Canada,
throw wide
The portals of thy gratitude ; these
men
Have mused the God in us.   Now cast
aside „
All littleness of aim,   Witb courage
high
And loftier purpose to thy taslcsagsin,
And carve thine  own   illustrious
destinv.
