are of a plastic material applied
with a trowel nnd adheres to either

used fur this plaster tins stood 1700

The cost of this material is about
one half that of the nr Hilary plaster
and less than half tbe cost of any
aggregate, tile or simple flooring.
An imitation marble Is produced

any otbei policy. Sir John Macdon-
aid was a ma«ter in its use, and
seldom resorted to it In vain. On one
occasion Sir John delivered an ad-
dress, which, for some mysterious
rea-on. wm slightly incoherent. The
following day. a newspaper man
called on him and diffidently showed
him certain notes which he had taken
of the speech.
Sir John aurvejred tlv nttes for a
moment and then turned to the reporter in a kind and fatherly man-
"Young man. will you let ma give
you a word of advicer"
"Certainly. Sir John," said tha
flattered  -erile'.
"Well, don't ever try to iwport one
of my speeches unlesn you are mra
that you are perfectly wlier. Now,
I'll tell ycu what I really did say"
And the young reporter wai wlae
enough to say "thank ynu."

Mr. llonlon has pledged liiin-elf

Canadian Navy, ami todo nothing
in the way of a permanent alternative policy until Wioh policy is
first submitted to lho people of

naval scheme that has to bfl evolved

bis colleagues is brought forth into
thc public view, It will l>c found to

beneficiaries not merely failed lo

ud tlieir former support. They
cannot blame anybody, unless il
may be tbat some time they may
blame themselves for I icing fooled,

Mr. Bordon, in his manifesto issued on Aug. It, pledged himself

of methods by which public expenditure is supervised. Increase is what
is known as ordinary controllable
expenditure from 821,600,000 in
1896 to nearly $74,000,000 In 1911,
is proof of extravagance beyond any
possible defence.
""2. Granting of the natural resources to the prairie provinces.
''3. Construction of the Hudson's
Bay Railway and its operation by an
independent commission,
"*l. Control and operation by lho
state of terminal elevators.
5. Necessary encouragement f**r
establishing and carrying on the
chilled meat industry.

John Hucklln I wua greitily pleased
-With blm. llii serious looks indicated
that tbe world wuh tu him an Important problem. I bud feared he would
turn out oue of tUtma mo called fascinating society men thai I did not admire. He was very deferential to me,
but If he bad heeu told tbat I bad
beeu picked out for him he ahowed no
consciousness of the fact. Altogether
our meeting waa satisfactory to all
respects but one. Mr. Rucklln showed
no etgu whatever that he took more
Interest lu me tbun wua warranted by
tbe fact that I waa man-bed wltb blm
at a wedding ceremuuy.
However, the acquaintance msde on
that occasion was continued, and Ur.
Bucklln became a regular caller at
our bouse. Be waa usually very busy,
but found time to ahow me some st-
CeutloD. Tet It seemed to me tbat be
waa doing It to plea*** Clara, wltb
whom be waa on very friendly terms
Occasionally 1 would twit her wltb Ibe
failure of her plan for me. whereupon
ahe would say: "I don't think John
considers himself able to marry Just
now. Ilealdes, Il seems to me tbat
you treat blm with marked Indifference." Aa to her excuses for Mr. Buck
Hu. t did nut consider tbem or any moment whatever. I was surprised at
her saying thut I treated him with Indifference, for I wus not conscious of
doing aa And yet Clura was doubt-
leaa right. If n mai'ih la designed by
a mutual friend and Ibe man lo tbe
cat* doea not make a move lo a matrl-
moots! direction the girt la very likely
to treat blm wltb either Indifference or
sometblog more pronounced.
Tbera was good reason why t should
marry. The family purse waa not plethoric, and father was growlog too old
to remain much longer In bualoeae harness. About thai time we discharged
our housemaid, giving out tbat we
couldn't get a servant, but really because wa couldu't afford to keep one.
I did ibt work tbat the housemaid hid
done. When I swept and dusted I planed my dress back and wort a towel
over my bead. Father encouraged me
by saying tbat I looked prettier In that
costume than wben dressed for A ball.
Out morning I waa sweeping tbe par
lor. It waa separated from tbe dining
room by folding doors aa well aa a portiere. At this particular time tbe folding doors and tbe portieres were both
cloaed. I beard the doorbell ring. I
couldu't go to tbe door In sweeping
costume, but father had not yet gone
out, and I knew ht would do so. 1
waa about to run opetelra when I
beard father's atep lo Ibe ball and
knew I was too late. Fearing be
snlgbt bring aome one Into tbe parlor,
1 stepped between tbt folding doors
tod tbt portiere.
I bad scarcely got Into concealment
wben father entered tbe room and
wltb blm another person. I couldn't
act wbo this person waa, but all doubt
on the subject was onou removed by
bearing ibe deep sounding voice of
John Bucklln. Naturally 1 waa very
much astonished.

"I hare uut. lu uny event I would

father. "I hnve nn objection. 1 will

But a mutter of fnr greater Importance urn-sled my atteutloo-at leant

again. Theu I heard him go upstairs.
"Where's Hiidie'*" "She's below."
"No, ahe Isn't" "She surely Isn't up

pomp and riches on every hand; of
the jaded woman who lingered there

sang no Bongs, hut wearied him with
tlieir social wrongs; and the judge indulged in another sigh, nud wiped
