bimy to go out wllh him every time
ho went. As for letting him run loose
around these streets with nothing to
do, lhat would bu sheer foolliardlncss.
It wa.-i tun into In tbe season tu enroll
him in the public schools and even that
would bave lefl him Idle during the
long summer months.
Wo talked Borne at first <>r Bonding
him off iiiiii the country to a farm.
There were two ur three families back
where Ruth bad lived wbu might be
willing Lo take him for three nr four
dollars n week and we had the money
left uv<t irom ihe sale of nur household goods lo cover that. But this
would mean the sacrifice ui our emergency iinui which we wished to preserve more Cor the boy's sake than
our own and it would mean leaving
Ruth very much alone.
"I'll do It, Billy," sho said bravely
"but can't we wait a Jay or two beforo

In ihe morning and I'll leave my work

Ku she would. She'd huve worked
all night to keep him at home and
then gone oul with him all day ir
had  been  possible.    1  saw   il WOUld  be

right Hon ami ibere that somo other
solution must be found fur the problem, Good Lord, alter I'd led her down
hero tin' least l could do was to let
her keep tho one. And to tell tbo
truth 1 found my own heart sink at
ibe suggestion,
"What do the boys round here do
In the summer?" she asked.
I didn't know and I made up my
mind to find out, The next day I went
down to a settlement house which I
remembered passing at fume time or
other. I didn't know what it was but
it sounded like some sort of phllan-

il if so they might tn be able
to answer my question thero, Thc
outside of ihe building was not particularly attractive bul upon entering
I was pleasantly surprised ut ibe air
uf cleanliness and comfort which prevailed. 'Ibere were a number of small
buys around and ln one room 1 saw
them reading and play ing checkers.
1 sought out the secretary and found
him a pleasant young fellow though
with something of Ihe professional
pleasantness which men In this work
seem to acquire. Mc smiled too much
and held my hand loo long to suit me.
lie took me Into hia offlce and offered
me a chair. I told him brletly that I
had Just  moved down here and had a
not all; a young man Louk
ii'r over llie building and showed me
the library, the reading-room, rooms
u here ihe young men gathered Cor
gamos, ami then down stairs to thc
well equipped gymnasium with lis
Bhower baths. Hire a buy could take
a regular course in gymnasium work
under u skilled instructor or if 'ho
showed   uny   skill   dovoto   himself   to
such spurts as basketball, running,
baseball or swimming. In addition to
these nd van lages amusements were
provided through the year In tbo form
of lectures, amateur shows nnd music,
lu the summer, special opportunities
were offered for out-door spurts. Moreover the Association managed summer
camps  where  fur a  nominal  feo  the
buys could enjoy the life of Ibe wouds.
A boy must be poor Indeed who could
not afford most of these opportunities,
And If he was mil nf work the employment bureau Conducted here would
help him to a position. 1 cume buck
to the main ulliee wondering still more
huw in tin1 world I'd ever missed such
chances all these years. lt was a
question 1 asked myself many limes \
iluring the next few months, And lbc
answer seemed to lie in the dead level
of thut oilier life. We never lifted uur
eyes; we never looked around us. If
wo wore hard pressed either we accepted uur lol resignedly or cursed
our luck, and let it go at lhat.    Theso
hood a
had nu lot and didn't know the meaning of luck. 'I'he others could have
bad them, too—can bave them—for the
taking, but neither by education nor
temperament are tbey qualified to du
so. There's a good Held for missionary work there fur someone.
Before l camo out of the building
I bad enrolled Hick as a member ami |
picked out for him a summer course
ln English, iu which he was a 1»U back- |
ward. 1 also determined to start him
in somo regular gymnasium work, lie
needed hardening up.
I came home aud announced my huo-
coss lo Ruth and she was delighted.
1 suspected by Ihe luu); in her eyes
thai she bad been worrying all day
fur fear there wuuld be no alternative
but tu send the boy uff.
"1 knew you wuuld Iind a way," she
said excitedly.
"I wish I'd found it twenty years
ago," 1 said regretfully. "Then you'd
have a lawyer for a husband instead
Of   II—."
"Hush," she answered pulling her
hand over my mouih. "I've n man
for a husband and thnt's all I care
The way she said It made mo feel
that after all being a man was whal
counted and that if 1 could live up to
that day by day, no matter whut happened, then I could be well satisfied.
I guess tbc cily directory was right
when before now It couldn't define mc
any mure definitely than "clerk." And
there Is abnut as much man In a clerk
as In a valet. They are both shadows.
The boy fell tn with my plans eagerly, fur ihe gymnasium work made him
uver before. I thrilled with Ihe Joy uf
ilie constructor, the builder, even in
ihls humble capacity, l felt superior
io theso for whom I was building, lu
a coarse way 1 suppose il was a re-
lleclion uf some urtislic sense—something akin to ihe creative Impulse. I
can say truthfully lhal tit the end uf
that ilrst day 1 caino home—begrimed
ami sore as I was—wilh u sense of
fuller life than so far I hud ever experienced.
1 found Ruth walling for me with
some anxiety, She came into my toil-
stained arms as eagerly as a bride.
It wns gnnd. 11 took all the soreness
mil of me. Before supper 1 look the
buy and wo went down to the public
baths un the waterfront nnd there 1
dived and splashed Hive a young whale,
The sling of the cold salt waler was
all the further halm I needed. 1 came

I true, of course, In uuy occupation, The
man who works without an Inspiration
j of sqme sort is not only discontented
but a poor workman.    I remember distinctly  that  when  1  opened  my  eyes
and   realized   ray   Burroundings   and
traced buck the Incidents of yesterday
the  ditch,  1  was concerned  principally wiih the problem of a stone In
path   upun   which   wc   had   been
working.    1 wanted  to get back  to It.
Wo bad   Worked  upon  it  for nn  hour
without fully uncovering it and I was
•user  ns   the   foreman    to  learn
whether it was a ledge rock or Just a
fragment.    This Interest was not usso-
•luted with the elevated road fur whom
the work was being done, nor the contractor who  had  undertaken  Ihe job,
nor the foreman who was supervising
It.   R was u question which concerned
only me anil Mother Earth who seemed to he doing her best lo balk us at
every  turn.   I  forgot  tho sticky, wet
clay In which 1 had floundered for nine
hours, forgot the noisome stench which
at   times   we  were  forced   to   breathe,
forgot   my   lnme   hands  and   back.   I
recalled   only  the  problem itself and
the  skill   with   which   the   man   they
called Anton handled his crow bar. He
was a master of it.   In removing tho
smaller slabs which lay around Ihe big
one he astonished ine with his knowledge tif how to place the bar.   He'd
come tn my side where 1 was prying
wilh all my strength and with a wave
of  his   band   for  ine   to  stand   buck,
Would   adjust    two   nr   three   smaller
rocks as a fulcrum and then, with ihe
gentlest of movements, work the half
ton weight Inch by Inch to where hi
wanted  It.   He eould swing tlie rock
lo the right or left, raise or lower It,
at will, and always he made the weight
of Ihe rock, against which I had striven so vainly, do the work.   That was
something  worth  learning.      1  wanted
(o gel hack aud study him.    I wanted
lo gel back and finish uncovering lhat
rock.    1 Wauled to get back and bring
the job us a  whole  tu a  finish so ns
lo have a new one to tackle.   Even at
end of thnt first day I felt I had'
learned enough lo mako myself a man
oC greater power than I was the day
before.    And always lu the background
was tho unknown goal to which this
toll was to lead.    1 hadn't yet stopped
tu  figure  oul   what   the  goal  was  but
thut It wus worth while I hud no doubt
for I was no longer stationary.   I was
a constructor.    I was  In touch with a
big enterprise of development.
1 don't know llmt I've made myself
clear, 1 wasn't very clear In my own

very conscious Impression of ihe sort
which I've tried to put Into words,

Horse breeding hns been followed as
a trade ever since animals were first
domesticated, but for only about a
century have stud-book records been
kept of the breeding of the different
families of horses. The study of types
has only quite recently been taken up
by men of science with a view of ascertaining the origin of the species and to
differentiate their characteristics.
As a result of this study, based upon
those anatomical differences und variations which have resulted from wide
geographical distribution, uud which
probably originated in early geological
times, it may bo accepted that there
are four families or species of horses.
The first typo iu this classification is
the Celtic horae, found on the west
const of Norway, known as the Fjord
horse ia Iceland, Faeroe, Barra, und
other small islands nf the outer Hebrides, in northern Scotland, on thc
.Shetland Isles, and in Cotineninru ur
northern Ireland. There litis also been
found a -lose kinship between the Celtic horse and the true Tarpan horso of
Russia. The principal characteristics of
this type are tlmt, ia common with tho
asses and zebras, it has nn callosities on
its hind legs, and litis a black stripe thu
entire longth of the hack and through
the tail. It is also frequently striped
on the legs ami shoulders like the asses,
and is uf a brown or light dun color.
Nature establishes harmonious groups
of plants, trees, and animals, and, certain conditions of climale heing given,
certain groups of animals ami plants
are found associated. Thc small red
deer of Norway was un original associate of the Celtic horse, and as this
deer is related to the rod deer of sonic
parts of France and of Spain, also of
Sardinia and ihe Barbary states, the
question naturally arises whether tho
small ponies of those same regions,
though not known only as domestic animals, may not be proven to bo kindred
to the Celtic horse. If the characteristics mentioned above arc present in any
lABUTO it would B001I) to prove the
point. Scientific research in this direction has not been pursued, and an inviting field is open to any one who cares
to follow this subject   further.
The second typo of horse iH the Pro*

steppes of central Asia, Thero nre a
few of theso in Fnglaiul on tho estate
of the Duko of Hedfonl, and several

s ibe epitome of ber life as set forth
In the preface to this Interesting me
morlal of her: "At the ago of five she
was on the stage, at seventeen she
married) at twenty sbe was famous, at
the beginning of her twenty-ninth year
sbe died, after passing beyond the
hounds of public enthusiasm, and filling tbe world wllh the tale of her
achievements." This pithy story tells
the ■"..'hole tragedy. But poor Malibran
began the bard struggle of life early
if she had to leave her glory very soon.
Her father, Manuel Garcia, was born
in Seville towards the close of the
eighteenth century. He was a dynamic man. He was a singer, composer,
stage manager—above all, teacher. He
had exhausted the possibilities of
Spain whii he was still young, and
iought in Paris a larger stage. Paris,
so hospitable to real artistic genius,
took the Spaniard to its arms at once,
and soon he was Infusing Into the
chorus of the Opera some of his own
infectious enthusiasm. People spoke
already of his "Andaluslan fury"—an
apt phrase which accounts for something in the history of himself and his
greater daughter. His wife was also
an actress uf great talent, and thus
Marie Malibran wus born almust tn the
green room. Her birth took place lu
Paris within a few weeks of the arrival of her father there from his native
Spain, and she always claimed to be a
Parisian and a Frenchwoman. Garcia,
like most of his class, was a nomad,
and the child was transferred when she
was but three years old to Italy. In
that far-off period the children of tbe
stage had to help in the making uf
bread for the household at a pathetically early ago, as some of thc survivors of that dead epoch could tell
us to-day when they recount the story
of their youth—Mrs. Kendal and Ellen
Tony among others. It was In Naples
that Marie Malibran made her first appearance. This was a solitary appearance, for immediately after she gave
herself up to the serious study of
music. Two French musicians, who
had gained the travelling scholarship
known as Grand Prize of Home, antici
pated her future greatness, and de
voted themselves, wilh true artistic
comradeship, to the development of
her talents, Already, Indeed, sho was
a remarkable child, for she could speak
French* Spanish, and Italia i with
fluency. After another visit to Paris
she arrived in London- nnd she added
a perfect knuwledgo uf Knglish to her
other accomplishments.
Her father then settled down for a

he was terribly severe one. due day
iwo musicians, walking near the hOUSO
uf the OarehiH, heard agonising
screams, Ono said to the other with

daughter to teach her to get her beats

burst, after bis example, into various
dazzling trills, and even improvised.
Amid the thundering of appluuso which
greeted her daring effort she felt a
bard pinch on her arm with the word
Minx!" whispered in her ear by the
enraged rival. Then she went to
America with a brilliant engagement,
accompanied by her father. There are
Innumerable stories of the merclless-
ness with which thnt terrible father
compelled lier to work at short notice.
Tlie restless fit, however, came on him
again, nnd he went to Mexico, leaving
bis daughter in New York behind him.
It was n perilous position for one so
young nud su successful und so unhappy. For any refuge was welcomo from
a taskmaster so severe and su dreaded. "The precise facts," says our iiu-
thor, "leading up to lho marriage are
somewhat obscure, because it was contracted in America, ami It is rather
difficult tu ascertain them exactly, Tbls
much Is known; that Francois Mugetie
Malibran, a French banker, has established himself in New Vork; fallen In
love with Mile. Garcia; ami lhat she,
despite the tromondous disparity of
Ugo the was forty-live ami she seventeen),, (ihi uni reject bis proposal.
There were, 11 is said, twu reusutis.
The Ilrst is, dial, in spite uf Ilu; suc-
coss she hud nttalnod In America, sbe
had fallen temporarily Intu a strange
dislike for the stage—which she was
afterwards to love, almost tu dote upon
ami thai the Ilrst result uf Ibe new
union was tu make ber abandon ti
career sbe fur the (line being loathed."
This pleasant dream was soon falsified. For whilst taking up a new life,
and leaving her father to gain a husband, the poor girl had only effected a
Change Of misery, as she too soon apprehended. In reality, aud despite her
great attractiveness, It is said that
Malibran, in making his suit for her,
had Ids eye on business, nnd on nothing more, aiming at the dowry of
$10,000. If we can go by all that has
been said on this topic, tbe position
of this so-called banker, which everyone believed to be very prosperous and
secure, was, on the contrary, In most
desperate straits. The $10,000 enabled
him, for the moment, to put off his
creditors; but only a few months later
his credit hud vanished and he was
declared Insolvent.
Thus was Malibran thrown back
again upon her art. It was unfortunate for her personal happiness, but
without this calamity In her domestic
life sbe never would have attained her
glory. It Is seldom that glory is ever
attained except at the loss of something else ln life. Malibran returned
from New York to Paris, spent some
little time In retirement, awaiting
events and offers that she could accept;
and finally making a single appearance
ln opera, at once captured Paris, and
sent it crazy in honor of her gifts, her
beauty, and her misfortunes. From
that tlmo onward Malibran had no further difficulties ln her artistic career.
Every country and every great city
fought for her.
It was ln Italy, of course, tbat she
excited enthusiasm to Its highest pitch.
Tliere are illustrations of this enthusiasm which are scarcely credible.
Take, for Instance, an occurrence at
Milan—Malibran was singing In "Norma." At the end of the second act
there burst forth a storm of applause.
It went on and on till nt last a full
quarter of un hour elapsed, and still
tho shouting showed no sign of stopping. The authorities were shocked,
and the chief constable called upon the
audience to stop. They went on more
furiously than ever. Then the mayor
was called ln, and he at last threatened
to stop the performance, and then only
did It come to an end. "Perhaps the
Ilrst time," comments the chronicler,
"that police measures have bad to be
employed to stop an artiste being applauded."
It was soon after tbls tremendous
triumph that Malibran heard suddenly
of thc death of Bellini. She had
achieved some of her greatest successes
In his operns, and she was personally
acquainted with him, nnd the two were
alt ached to each other. The event
mnde a painful Impression on her. She
must have beon something of a visionary, as most artists ure, for she made
the sinister and sadly-realized remark,
"I foci I shall soun follow him." Sbe

lien is not unly chanced upon tho dis*
iron, but dwelt iu a laud
where the cattle were capable of being
loniesticuted and used as beasts of burden such ns tbe fierce buH'alo could
never become. There, too, tho wild
plants included those extremely useful
species, wheat, barley, and rice, much
more widely adaptable and useful than
the corn uud beans of America.
Consider for n moment what iron
means to US. Where should wo bo if
every scrap of metal should suddenly
be taken away? Suppose, too, that we
had no cuttle, uo sheep, no horses, aud
no domestic animals of any sort except
the dog. How long would it bo before
wc should be naked, and should be
fighting for the veriest rags to keep out
the cold airs of winter? How we should
fight for every scrap of food, liko veritable beasts! Thc strong, the sly, or tho
crafty would survive; tho rest would
miserably perish. Our vaunted culture
would vanish into thin air before the
inexorable primitive aeeds of food and
shelter. We should scour tho mountains for Hint, wc should bruiso our
hands in clumsy attempts to chip stones
into tools, nnd we should be filled witb
ilclight when we found a stick of wood
well shaped for killing rabbits.
Yet in the past how much the first
Americans accomplished! Without iron
or any other metal they hewed caves
and images from the softer rocks, or
broke hard sandstone into symmetrical
blocks for thc construction of dwelling-
houses. They felled large trees ami
mado them into beams, they cut pathways in tho faco of the dill's, built
houses of many storeys, tilled the land,
and did all manner of household tasks,
such as grinding grain, weaving cloth,
and making pottery. They raised their
structures to a height of three or even
five storeys without tho help of a single
implement which we would call a tool,
nad after a thousand, or perchance two
thousand, years some of their walls
still stand. Crude us their achievement was, it was, if anything, greater
than ours, for they lived in the dawn
of civilization. Who can say how the
history of tho world might have boon
altered had some accident disclosed tho
use of iron to America as well as to
Asia ?

As thc batalon of tho patron makes

Sometimes thero would bo a wild hog,
sometimes wild turkey, or a big, black
bird very much larger and more delicious in flavor; but it was tho monkey
that was tho standard diet for many
days. With seventeen able bodied appetites in tho outfit, the noon hunt was
a necessity, and monkey thc most ac
cessiblo game. If tliere ever seemed to
be a trifle too much, the Taoana crew
would rouse themselves during thc
night und have additional feasts, until
by dawn tho supply was gone. On
sand-bars they would forage for turtle-
eggs, and ovory day they usually collected a bushel or two of those. But it
wns monkey that furnished them with
the greatest delicacy and the keenest
pleasure in tho bunt.
Though monkey-shooting wns necessary and there was for tho moment tho
thrill of skilful shooting, yet tho element of pathos dominated.
A clean shot stirs no thought, but to
wound first, as must happen in many
cases, gives a queer little clutch nt tho
heartstrings that can never be shaken
off. The little monkey, the frightened,
hopeless agony of denth stamped on its
tiny, grotesque features, dabbles aimlessly with little Iwigs and leaves, stuffing them at the wound; sometimes it
feebly tries tu get buck ninniig thi
branches tlmt make his world, and, ns
you approach| there is never any savage
snarling stand where he meets extinction with tlio cornered heroism that
seems for the moment lo balance tho
scene. Instead, he pleads with failing
gestures of forlorn propitiation, and with
hoarse, cooing little noises, fur the respite that would be far less merciful
tliau the coup de grace.
Slowly tho days passed, and it was
with tho most cheerful emotions thnt
we at last picked up tho first signs of
tho frontier townrd which wo woro
working. It wns only tho shack of a
lonely rubber-picker, nnd tho poorly
mado hut was bare to tho verge of destitution. Near by there was nn uncultivated patch of rlco, corn, yuccas, bananas, and some tobacco-plants. Under
the cane bunk wns a pair of primitive
rubber shoes, mado of tho pure rubber
mixed with a little   gunpowder,   and

A Parisian surgeon has been served
with notice of an action which terrifies
It is not the damages, which will undoubtedly be heavy, but the fact that
his professional reputation is at stake
which makes thc case so terribly serious for him.
lt appears that a railway porter was
brought into tho hospital with un affection of tho right arm which necessitated an operation. On recovering from
thc anaesthetic, the unfortunate patient
was horrified to discover that it was
tho loft arm, thc sound one, which had
been cut open.
There was nothing for it but to submit to a second operation, but for the
blunder from which ho has suffered tho
man is suing tho surgeon.
All men make mistakes at times, aud
surgeons, being but human, make a fow
of tho many blunders that are made.
Some littio time ago an English lady
doctor was sued by a former patient
because, during nu internal operation,
a tiny sponge had been loft behind in
the wound, aud had afterwards to be
cut out.
But this wus nothing to the blunder
mado by the French doctor who operated on a woman and accidentally left
throe yards of bandages within her
body. The mistake necessitated another
very severe operation in order to extract tho dressings, nnd the lady recovered a thousand dollars damages.
Another similar case comes from
Lyons, where nn operator lost a ring
during hts work, nnd found that ho had
left it inside tho cut which ho had made
in his patient's abdomen.
Hearing of the efficacy of the Runt-
gen rays for the removal of -Uperflnoua

Mr. Editor:
Since the-"man on the

uny be snid the pews ina-. answer
he pulpit. Such being the at-1
mosphore exception was taken to
he astounding claim thai God had
liven to a certain individual sonic
5450O0 of an "unearned incrcmont"
is John Stinirl Mill terms il or what
bus come to bo called upon the
it reel rise in land values on real
'slate. Iii the lecturer's reply we
were pleased to hear his avowal of
speaking ilcc|llllilltlinco with the
science of political economy. Now, [
Mr. Editor, If ihis science moans
anything al all for ti |ieoplo il must
mean the    square deai"   or  tlio
seii of living equitably together.
And yet the lecturer boldly claimed
'ipiily for the private nrpiisition of
ii trlllo of $45,000 of unearned land
value. That this mothod of getting
wealthy is legal, legal ns law enn
mako it, is freely iiilniilled, hut Ihnl
il is moral is strenuously denied.
For ouo In gel something for nothing "unoarncd luoreiuont" involves
another giving something for nothing. A wrong is done, Toacquiro
Is one thing (n earn is another.
Why did this friend of lbc leoturor,
acquire $-15,000, thus cosily, simply
because the established order of
things, the "system," 11i:lili- him the
ti   beneficiary of special  privilege,
private law passed for the benefit of
tin- individual as agftining the community, tho whole  of  the  people.,
'these special privileges   being   but
lho outcome of arrogance and greed
on Ihe one   band,   ignorance  and1
helplessness on Iho otber.     When:
the peoplo wore asleep these man-,
aeles  were   rivelted    upon    thom.
These laws are inan-niaile laws per-
llicous man mado laws, every one of
them, and yet in the   face of the'
mural economic awakening, a niini-|
sterol'! In-(iospel invites mt audience
off the slieel to calmly inform  il
Uml God gave $45,000 of an  "unoarncd increment" to somo favorite.
Small wonder under such circumstances that bearded men  cease to
lie churchmen to become "men ou
tho street."   Since the world began
there has of course been  tho  globe
and ninn upon it.     Since civilized
history began some, nol nil, of thc
sons of men have owned   thc  earth
10 charge rent, economic rent, and
collecting "unearned increment"
fur its use. But according to the
lecturer when the recipient of this
gift from the community hnd
whacked up as it wore with lho
church equity wns satisfied, Never
a word that this $„,000 should not
have been legally appropriated.
Never a word lhal this sum should
have been left iu the pockets of the
people. If additional proof were
needed that God is truly u God of
love is it not found iu the fuel lhal
He does mil arise iu his wrath and
give snnie of  bis  self   elected   vice
regents down hero on earth a back

It is learned from a reliable source 2
that engineers are now in the field j J
surveying a route for the Port Mann, J
extension of tlie 11. C. E. It. Kritsorli
Valley line, and while the line is J
not definitely located, tentative plans
show a route whieh in addition in
taking in I'orl Mann, will shorten
the present line to Chilliwack by
abrtut ten miles. As now projected,
the line will branch oil' from the
Chilliwack line just north of the
South We-t mi lister station, and
following the hillsides will run into
Port Mann on a one por cont grade.
From Port Maim, the line will take

But while thoro is thus plenty of

We have recently witnessed has wholly
subsided, tho fooling is that tho main
danger-points havo been successfully
passed. Tho upheaval while it lasted
was sufficiently serious. It will bo
long beforo .ue llritish peoplo, with all
their remarkable gift for forgotting,
ceaso to remember tho second aud third
weeks of August, 1911. They were
mado to feel something of the effects
uf a war in which tho British ileot
hud been worsted. They saw tho Metropolis brought within measurable distance of starvation, thousands upon
thousands of tons of food rotting on
(ho docks, and as unattainable as thuugh
they woro on another continent, the
prices of all kinds of provisions doubled
and even trebled In a week, the moans
of getting ubout the city suddenly dim*
iuishod by one-third, owing to the
shortage of petrol, goods piling Up in
the station yards without a chance of
delivery, bullion conveyed from the
Hank of England in taxis and private
motor cars to evade the detection of
tho strikers; perishable food, urgently
needed, convoyed from the depots to tlio
markets under armed and mounted police and military escort; newspapers
driven down to their last day's supply
of paper and at their wits' end how
to effect delivery, thc Kast Knd a daily
and nightly set-no of battles between
Mrikers and poli.-e, a quarter of a million peoplo thrown out of work, the
whoio transport service of the city violently abolished, soldiers occupying the
railway stations, special cunstahles enrolled by tno thousand, nnd all London in imminent peril of being cut off
from railroad communication with the
imtor world. 'Ihey saw the great port
uf Liverpool paraly/.ed, a fortnight pass
l.y without a single consignment of
goods leaving the docks or depots, except under a powerful convoy, thc
transatlantic steamers compelled to
cancel their sailings, and all tho strikers
and hooligans iu the city in frequent
and bloody collision with the police and
-ioldicry. They suw Miailar scenes on-
acted in Manchester, Newcastle, Shef-
iicld, Bristol, Ilu-.. Swansea, and a
dozen uther ports and manufacturing
i-cntros. They saw finally an attempt
to bring to a total stoppage tho entire
railroad syHtem of the country, an at
tempt that failed in its main object-
two thirds of tho railway employees remained faithful to the companies
throughout—but that disorganized.tnif
lie overywhoro, paralyzed it iu certain
districts, threatened the end of all industrial activity, and was accompanied
hy uot a fow sinister acts of subotage
and destruction. It seemed for a while
na though all labor hud broken loose
aud waB combining in au assault upon
tho vury framework of society, as
though some sudden madness ol vio
leneo and pillage had descended upon
tho masses, us though all social obliga
tions wert* being thrown to the winds.
It is impossible to go Boriatim into
tlie grievances put forward by so many!
different grades und classes of workers
mi so many different trades all over the
country. To attempt to do 10 would I

-m-mklng generally, ono may suy that
through all the many dlvlllODl of Ihe

The cabled reports of American comment on the strikes indicate that In

eloMQB are, generally speaking, under

wages was therefore jUBtlfiod, So far
us tho dockers and their allied groups
an* eoneorned 1 shall roy that American opinion was right; but I nm more

un.l would urge that to tako "over-

Mm) allotments at price., thai bnrdly re
turn two per cent, to the companies, In
Great Britain, as in tho United States,
to enter tho service of a railroad is to
capture ono of the prizes of the labor
market, and no company ever has the
slightest difficulty in filling all its vacancies. Indeed, while the demand for
higher wages undoubtedly operated
with many sections nf railwayinen, wliat
caused tho attempt at a general strike
was rather resentment over tho dilatory
workings of the Conciliation Boards
set tip liy Mr. Lloyd-Goorgo in li)07 to
settle all internal disputes, coupled with
tho determination of tlie trades unions
to secure recognition. There wero of
course many other contributing influences of a more general description. Labor in England, ns elsewhere, growing
yearly mt re mechanical, grows yearly
more bored. Of late years, too, it has
beon worked upon by the golden promises hold out by tho government of a
new social era. It was never more
conscious than now of tho inequalities
in tho distribution of wealth and opportunity and it has begun to see that
many of the measures adopted by thc
Legislature for too special benefit of
the working classes carry with them
considerable disadvantages. It is right,
for instance that omployors shuuld
compensate their workmen for accidents
and injuries; but when tho result is
legalizing tho principle of compensation
is to make it difficult for a middle-aged
workman either to keep or find a job,
can it be said that labor as a whoio is
greatly benefited? Another and more,
immediate cause of tho striko was undoubtedly tho excessive boat. Nothing
like it has been known in England for
a generation or more. Wo havo all
boon wilted, irritable, inclined to be
lazy, still more inelinod to magnify our
grievances and complain of our lot;
and 1 have a good ileal of sympathy
with any ono doing manual work under
au almost tropical sun, living iu a festering, sweltering slum, who feels tho
temptation to lay off for a whilo and
vary tho routine of lifo by cracking a
policeman's skull. It is quite probable that if wo had a normally cool
and rainy August tho discontent would
either not have come to a head or
would have taken a far milder form.
A prominent feature of thc crisis has
been the testimony it hns borno to the
increasing solidarity and interdependence of labor. A strike formerly, and,
as a rule, was confined to a single section of a single industry and was directed against a single employer. The
other sections in the same industry, or
the same sections working for other
mplovers, wore neither dragged into
the struggle nor felt any call to parti*
ipatc iu it. If the stevedores struck
against one of tho dock companies,
othor stevedores in the service of other
and possibly neighboring dock companies might still remain at work without
incurring reproach or running the risk
nf being violently intimidated; aud because tho stevedores struck that was
no reason why thc lightermen and carmen should follow suit. A strike used
thus to be a strictly lucalized affair,
Trouoe on one railroad did not necessarily imply trouble on ull railroads.
The porters, again, might strike while
the signal-men and engine-drivers would
remain fnithiul. But we have learned
once nnd for all from the recent convulsions that those easy, haphazard
methods are obsolete. Labor nowadays is far better organized und far
more alive to tho value of unity and
cohesion. The result is that we have
scon men, with admittedly no grievances at ull, leaving their work and
throwing down their tools in order to
show tlieir sympathy with their fellow laborers who had struck for some
definite cause. We have seen a strike
not ot sections or groups, hut of whole
Industries, Wo liave seen tho principle enforced that no one section or
group could return to work until all
Sections and groups had been satisfied.
There is no necessary connection between dockers and railway men. But
both are engaged in the Inisiness of
transportation, and at Bristol Ihe phon*
nmenon was witnessed of dockers, whose
demands hml been complied with, ro*
fusing to go hack lo work heeause a
small majority of them could not work
whilo the railway men were out on
strike, hi the same way ihe troubles
at the London docks have been greatly
prolonged because all sections, or almost all, hung together and would nol
resume work so long as any section
remained unappeusod. In the sunn* wuy,
uguin, the men employed hy different
railroad companies have struck not because they had any grievance of their
own, but GocnUSO men OUlplOYOd in other
capacities and by other mil roads had
struck. This is a very significant de
volopmont. It means that n strike
ngninsl particular employers quickly
turns Into a strike against the community at  large.
Another feature of tho disorders wns
the extent to which picketing was carried "ii by the strlrton with a view
both nf coercing the faithful to COmO
nut and to preventing the employment
of "scuh" or "hluckleg" labor.
11 Peaceful•" picketing is permitted by
llriti-h law. That i-> to say, u striker
may '' peacefully" persuade a non
striker to leave work. But in practice it wns found all over the, couutry
thut   this  legnl  permission   resulted  in
the grossest and most violent intimidation and was, indeed, one of the main
causes uf llie turmoil in the streets nnd
of the continuance of the strikes.   The
question  is  if infinite    difficulty
Whorevor industrialism exists. On the
one hand, a man who desires, and is
willing to take, n vacant post ought, it
is said, to be free to do so, and all the
power of the state should be exercised
to prevent liis liberty to choice tint! notion fn*m being taken nway. On the
Othor hand a mun who steps into a job
vncntOU hv a laborer ou strike is com
milling, from the itondpolnl of tho
working classes, the  crime  of  crimes.

dwelling ou, The lirst is that the Labor members of parliament were tw much
surprised as tao rest of tho public by
tlio extent and violence of the industrial unrest. They did not originate
thc agitation nor could they control it.
So far as it was tho work of auy ono
person, the Labor leaders who havo always been bitterly opposed to tho notion of the Labor M.P.'fl and to tho
whole policy of labor representation iu
Parliament, ami who believe that
for the working classes thero is
only ouo really effective weapon — tho
univorsal strike—wero responsible for
it. This may mean, though I du not
think it will, that tne same sort of derision which already exists in Franco
will declare itself in England, und that
labor will be split up between those
who favor parliamentary agitation and
those who favor "direct action. The
"direct nctiouists,'' us they call themselves, havo at any rato given a startling display of their power, and in doing so they have shown incidentally
that the majority of the Lubor M.IVs
are entirely out of touch with tho special section of thc population they profess to represent. The second point
which the disorders have strikingly emphasized is that '' collective bargaining" which usod to be considered the
strongest point iu trade unionism is now
fast becoming impossible, because the
rank aud lile of trade unionists refuse
to follow their leaders or to be bound
by any agreements entered into in
their namo. It was one of the express conditions of thc railroad settlement of 1907 tnat there should be no
strike until 1914, Nevertheless there
has been a strike. Similarly wheu
the terms on which the trade union
leaders ami the railroad directors hud
patched up a truce a few days ago were
made known, they were repudiated hy
the men in one railroad centre after
another. The same thing happened in
the case of the various interests affected by the trouble nt the docks. Thc
phenomenon of strikes taking place
against the advice of trade union leaders, of meu rejecting the terms of peace
concluded ou their behalf by their own
executive, ami of lawlessness, inexperience, aad ia discipline triumphing in
the councils of trade unionism over
responsibility and common sense, is per
haps the most sinister development laid
hare by the recent disorders. Unless
it is cheeked it must infallibly bring
trade unionism clattering to the ground.

"Gatacro Majuba Bullcr,1' as at least

.Man and selfishness aro considered
synonymous, and no one worries much
about it but tho immediate victims. Vet
why should this utiluvnbio trait be winked at when maseulinu?
A selfish woman is aa abomination;
so is a selfish man, but he is not mnde
to realize it. Instead of deploring ttie
selfishness of men, light it. This may
menu ructions, but it will polish up masculine iiiunners.
Men are not hum selfish, and it is the
fault of somo one else that a nice man
becomes inconsiderate.
Who is to blame? Generally every
one with whom the boy comes in contact. It is uot tho heatheu parent
only who is puffed with pride over tho
man-child. No girl baby ever causes
the unctuous voice in which a young
father says, "My BOUl" Even the
mother hns a longing that tho iitst

What follows? Spoiling. Ho is
treated liko a special being, though he
may be trained to actual obedience.
Less is roqulrod of him, more is excused him, beeauso he is a boy. No
wonder ho exacts attentions us a
When the cook leaves, does brother
wash dishes? Not he. He is at the
ball field or at ease iu a hummock
while sister must put her hands into
tho greasy dishwater.
And the odd part of it is that, while
little sister may murmur at hor un-
genial task, may eveu sulk or storm,
she docs not demand that little brother help.
The mother is to blame here. Why
should housework be considered derogatory to boyish dignity? Why should a
man let a delicate young wife work
alone whenever the cook is out? Ue
wouldn't if the boy had been taught to
handle broom and duster, carpet beater,

Custom may be responsible for this
form of selfishness, but the new
mothers must override this had custom.
When a wife takes a hand it is too late;
.selfishness is secure.
If mothers only realized thnt they
were training their sons for unhappi-
noss they would take more pains to
make them thoughtful. Half the un-
happiaesK in marriage is caused by n
selfish husband.
One girl who visited iu tho home of
her fiance a month before the wedding
broke her engagement. She loved the
man, but not enough, sbe said, to be
the slave to him that his mother nnd
sisters were.
If in a family aay one must give
up, make sacrifice, it should be the
boy of the house. Girls are not so
easily spoiled; it is their nature to
lavish attention on loved ones, and
they will not make worse wives for
expecting unselfishness in a husband.
A man will not be a prig because he
can think of his mother and sister.
He'll make a much better husband and
father than if he cultivated his muscles
uml brain and let his heart be atrophied
with selfishness and thc tradition that a
man shouldn't help in the house.
The business of raising butterflies is
proving profitable to several persons in
this country and abroad. Costly specimens are grown to satisfy the whims of
collectors, and these earn fat prices for
the breeder. When the "butterfly

The best of theso are kept in glass

This is important to avoid mutilating

$24,000 toward the erection of a
810,000 high school, The city
council will submit .1 bylaw ut 1111
early date to raise Slio.OtlO to complete the amount necessary. To
any one who is acquainted with the
situation locally it is clear that a
new high school is an absolute necessity. The present building is_
inadequate to the increasing needs.
At present only 15 per cent, of the
available students ure aoeommo-
luted. The public school is also
•rowded and Iho present high
school building will hnve to he

Those who realize the importance of
education, and that should include
everyone, should take this mutter
up iu eurnest and bring il to a successful issue.

Feeding fine flavors into meats is

possibility of bringing these distances

which can ho done provided the fault of

not u matter of a faulty construction
or conformation of the hind quarters.
in all excessive approach of fore and
hind feet and their consequent Interference we should not entirely work on
the bind feet, but should also consider
the fore feet as being somewhat responsible for too great a backward extension and vicious curves of motion.
For Instance, trotters that paddle and
pacers that hit Ihelr knees arc both
subject to such an interference wllh
the hind feet. Tho remedies for cross-
firing are mainly obtained by modifying the Inward curves as In the previous defects discussed, and by controlling or rather by developing the
hind action by shoes that bring about
slightly more elevation and backward
extension of the hind legs.

Tho fundamental idea underlying all

line of motion nf the home. That is
to sny, fin* fool will travel in an in*
wurd curve toward the othor leg. The
remedy lies in widening the distuiieo
between lho two fore feel by slightly
i raising the outside half of each foot,

This outs!do breakover will somewhat
force Ihe foot to '' toe in'' slightly,
thus counteracting the outward dlroo-
I tion before observed and usually result-
ling in a much reduced curve Inward tbe
| inside. Tbc angle of the foot as it is
set down ou the ground is not so outward uud tbe breakover appears on the
soil as coming less at the inside nud
! more at the outside of tho too proper.
| Making the shoe a little wider or even
heavier on the outside will bring about
| less sinking in nnd hence a more elevated position of foot, nnd a roll on tbo
outside toe and toward heel will also
help the Intended breakover there. The
simple principle involved in such n
case is the reduction of tbo Inward
swing of the curve resulting invariably
from a breakover nt the Inside of tho
toe. Of course iu all cases thc paring
of thc hoof is the first thing to attend
to, nnd here the lowering of outside
toe, leaving the outside heel, and again
lowering thc inside heel and leaving
the inside toe, will in itself aid in giving the foot ami leg a better direction.

Thus the while-haired ludy came to

family uf anciont Uneuge.
Ono night, shortly after eleven
o'clock, when Mrs. M., as 1 shall call
lier, had gone up to her bedroom, she
thought she heard a mumilng sound,
und some one subbing as though In
gl^al distress. Mr. M. wan away from
home, lho servants slept In another
pari of tho house, uud she was quite
alone except for a friend who had
come lu keep her company during her
husband's absence, and lo whom she
had said good night only a few moments before.    Hut being a COUragOOUS
woman she resolved to make an investigation and soon located tic sound
as   Coming   from   nut doors.    Tiptoeing
over to ii window on the staircase landing sbe raised lhe blind and cautiously
peered oul.
BelOW, on the luwn, in the pale glow
nf lhe moon, she suw un D-masIng scene.
A mlddloaged man, stern of face ..nd
wearing a general's uniform, was
standing menacingly over a
girl who, with hands clasped .:. anguish, wus on her knees before him.
At the sight of his hard, unrelent og
expression, Mrs. M.'s one thought was
not of four for herself but :
ihe unfortunate girl.
"So much did I feel for her," - ,*-
said iu narrating ihe affair, "that
oul a moment's hesitation I ran down
tbe staircase lo the door opening upon
lhe lawn to beg her to cuioe in and
lell me her sorrow."
When she reached the do.-r the figures of lhe soldier and the gtrl were
still plainly visible on the Uwn, and
in precisely the same attitude,
the sound of her voice they .;.;..;.toured.
"They did nol vanish instantly," Mr**.
M. explained, "but more llk<
Ing  view—ihat  is,   gradua
did nnt leave the du...r until Ita
Months    afterwards,    wh-n
wllh    her   husband    at   a   i
house, she noticed on the wall ths   -
trait of a distinguished-looking man in
a military uniform.   At once she recognized it.
"That." sho told her husband, la wa
undertone, "is a picture of ihi ortknr
I saw on the lawn."
Almid she asked:
"Whose portrait is  tha.'.'"
"Why," replied her host. "'It is i portrait of my uncle, _*-n.;ra: =.r JL *_.
He was born and died in the house
that you now occupy. But why :. ■ .
When she had told th*i story ;.•-
host explained.
"What you say Is most singular F.jr
it Is an unhappy fact that Sir X, Y.'-i
youngest daughter, a beaut.tul gtaS
brought disgrace upon th*-! family vu
disowned and driven from horn*-! ay hnr
