The Gouiwr Amis
A smnll item  wns  published  in
lust issue of the Free Cress   front   a
correspondent   in  whieh   reference
wns ninde to the illness of  Mrs.   C.
C. Dnvies of Fairfield Island, whom
Dr.   Patten  was   attending.     The
wording of Ihe item, permitted those
who were so disposed,   to read a
different inclining into it than wus
obviously intended   by the contri-
Imtor, nnd which in its travels from
mouth to mouth, bus been   colored
und seasoned to suit the taste, until j
we incidently beard the story,  and
find Ibut it bad,  by  a marvellous]
stretch of imagination,   originated:
from the item referred to.    ln lair-1
ness to llr. Patten we have deemed j
this explanation necessary.     None
bnt nn irresponsible gossip would!
have lieen uncharitable enough to;
have used what was clearly a clerical
error, for the starting  point  of an
injurious fabrication.

.Messrs. Lnwery and Lewis of the |
Ilnssniu Pavement Co., Viineouver,
then addressed the Council, on  the
merits and cost of constructing this
pavement.     Mr.   Lnwery   pointed
out that before uny permanent road j
making was done a system of sewer-
ago und drainage should bo worked
out nml   installed.   He   bud gone
over Mr. Buck's plans and   profiles
and advised ti dual system, drainage i
and sewerage.   The cost he thought
WOttld be in   the   neighborhood  of
tho estimate of Mr. Buck mad.- lust!
yenr.   The question wns not one of
advisability but one  of   necessity. I
He estimated the cost of Hassan, j
pavement   at $-.85 or 82.40 perl
square yard complete. The City rock
would not be suitable Ibere lieing al
mixture of soft und huld rock.   This I
uld necessitate the procuring of
rock ut an outside imint und in
addition to this the cement was
much higher here tban at the Coast. |
In connection with tlie procuring of
suitable rock the abovo gentlemen
lo-getber with Alderman O'Hearn
visited the Government rock unary j
at Vedder Mountain on Tuesday j
but the quality of this rocl; is slated [
'to be no lietter than the city quarry I
product.

The Mayor reported on the trip
of Alderman O'lfenrn, Gervan nnd
himself to Westminster   and   Van-

discussed, "Scientific Socialism"
is a topic of considerable and increasing interest to men. Socialism has many advocates who view
the subjects from almost as many

Somehow, iu our minds Ihe Barb and
Arab is always a groy, whereas they
vary much iu color, uud it is curious
to recall the Arab superstitions in this
respect, in which, no doubt, soma grain
of sense founded upon oxporienco is
hidden among somo amusing chaff. Of
theso quaint proverbs, hall' poetical and
half rollgious, Whilo as woll practical, a
fow may bo mentioned briefly Jioro:
Select the spotless white liko a idlkeu
flitg, black around tlu* v,ycs.
The bla.k should resemble night
without moon ur Btars,
Desire Ihe cheMuiil, when he Hies it
is the wind; the I'luphet himself pre
fened  the  ehestnul.
The bay should bo nearly black or
golden.
Tho dark grey (pigeon grey) should
resemble the stones of the river.
WhltO Is tho color of princes, but ill
stands  the  heat.
Black is a lucky color, but is ill suited for rocky ground.
The chestnut is the lightest; if a man
tells you ho has seen a horso Ily in the
air, believe him if ho says it was a
chestnut.
Tho bay is more hardy and temperate; If you aro told a horse has leaped
over a precipice without injury, believe
it was a bay one.
Of course, many curious and interesting legends accompany these. The unpopular colors are as follows:
Tho piebuld.—Avoid it as tho plague,
it is the brother of thc cow.
Tho dun with black hairs brings bad
luck; nii chief will mount one, nor the
tribes let it remain for a single night
among them.
The roan is called the pond of blood;
its muster will bo taken, and will never
take others.
Then .nines much quaint low ai to
markings, tufts of hair, some forty iu
number, twenty-eight trilling, twelve
Important, six lucky, and six bringing
bad luck to the owner. Foolish as it
might be to take these traditions seriously altogether, and though wo may
say that a good horse is never of a bad
color, yet these are founded on long experience, and provo the Oriental's love
of the lioise, which, indeed, ho has for
many generations evolved for us as the
foundation of our thoroughbred stock
throughout thc world.
Still thc question remains to define
exactly what the Barb is. Perhaps the
tendency has been to draw too defined 0 lino between tho Barb and tho
Arab horse. It is, in fnct, correct to
life either word for tho Eastern raco,
that great family whose origin is lost in
the depths of antiquity, nml whicli has
been so developed, extended, and in
turn modified by varied breeding, cli-
inato and training, as well as the pur-
puses to which they have been applied
and other influences. Strength, activity, vigor, endurance and courage aro
the attributes of the tribe from Morocco to the Caucasus, thence to tho Euphrates throughout tho land of islam
is found the faithful companion of the
Arab man regardless alike of starvation
and fatigue. Call him us you pleaso—
Persian, N'umidian, Barb, Syrian, Arab,
no matter what the family name should
bo, still tho horse of the Kast. His motto might well he the proud words of tho
Arab song, "Ho conquers hunger, ho
conquers thirst."
CELLULOID
Celluloid is a species of solidified collodion produced by dissolving gUOCOttOfl
(pyroxylin) in camphor, with tho aid
of heat ami pressure.
The guncotton is ground in water to
a fine pulp in a machine similar to thai
used iu grinding paper pulp. The pulp
is then subjected to powerful pressure
in n perforated i oisol to oxt racl  tho
bull:  *il" the  moisture, but siill  leaving
it slightly moist for tbe nbxt operation.
This consists in thoroughly Incorporating finely comminuted gum •camphor with tho moist guncotton pulp, i
The proport ions employed are said tn be'
ouo part by weight *»f camphor to two
parts by weight of tho pulp. With this,
mixture any coloring matters required
can now bo Incorporated-
The next Step is to subject the mass
to powerful pressure In order to expoll
from it; the remaining tracos ui moisture, nnd incidentally to elicit also the
more intimate contact of the camphor
with the pulp.
The dried and COmproSSOd mass is
next placed iu u mold, open nt tho top,
Into which fits n solid plunger. A heavy
hydraulic pressure is brought to hear
upon the plunger, and ut the same time
tho mlxtUTO Is heated to a tempernturo
of about three hundred degrees Fahrenheit.
When tho mass is taken out of tho
press it hardens and acquires the ex
trnordhinry toughness and elasticity
whieh are the distinguishing characteristics of tho product.
Among its many uses celluloid is vo.y
largely employed as n substitute for
ivory, which is imitated with great
success. Tortoise-shell, malachite,
mother-of-pearl, coral, and othor costly
materials ure also so successfully Imitated that tho average person can hardly detect tho origiual from tho copy.
Celluloid is also usod as a substitute
for porcelain iu the manufacture of
dolls, which will stand a great deal of
rough usage without breaking,
SWORD ETIQUETTE OF OLD JAPAN
In Japan until within recent times
the sword was considered a badge of
tho aristocracy. The etiquette that regulated tho wearing of tho long und the
short sword was expressed in a number
of minuto rules.
Tho most trivial breach of theso
minuto observances was often tho cause
of murderous brawls and dreadful reprisals. To touch another's weapon or
to como into collision with tho sheath
was a dire offence, and to enter a
friend's house without first leaving the
sword outside was a breach of friendship.

The house was of tho "choap apart-

lived a fat woman who passed all her

brought up hor family exclusively on

had just moved in oa the second floor,
the third was tenuntless, and tho fourth,
that directly under her own, wus occupied by a quiet, unobtrusive, middle-
aged man of single estate. He boarded

Margaret was twenty-eight yeurs old,

What a dreadful world it was, anyhow] It gave nothing. Kvery thing
hnd to be bought, buiignt with money—

hor stepsister had at last convinced

and cynical, petrify intu a sharp old

below. Thoy had met on the stuirs
several times and he had politely raised
his hat, but GOUrtOsiOB had gOUO no
further. As he stood there in the doorway Margaret noticed in him. as she
always had noticed, the air uf breeding
and grace of manner marking him out
unmistakably as a guntIonian; though
ho must be n very poor nne, else what
would he be doing iu this dwelling-
place of limited   incomes /
"I—1 beg your pardon for the intrusion '' he wus painfully disturbed by
tho sense of it—"but 1—-er— tho fact
is. u great deal of water has been coming through the kiicheu coiling, nnd 1
thought—l  wondered—"
"Ooud grnciouEt"
He stood for a moment uncertain
what to do next, then followed her
down tho hull.
' Hood gracious!'' said Margaret
again. Tho kitchen floor had becoiuo
a miniature lake. "It's tho tubs—i
put some things to soak and forgot to
turn inc water off. Oh! 1 am so sorry!
Has it douo much damage."
"Nev_r mind tho damage," ho answered; "we'll get vour kitchen dry
first."
And that is how "it" began, fur
evidently whon twu peuple have mopped up a kitchen floor together they can
no longer stnnd tu ouch other iu the
relation of strangers.
Hefore he left she decided that gray
hair gave him nn added air of distinc*
tion and that ho was oven better-looking than sho hud realized—handsome,
in fact.
Arthur Wardell was his name iu full.
She wns glad it was uot. Thomas or
.lames ur Andrew, for in her innermost
soul  Margaret was romantic.
'Ihey were sitting in her small draw*
ing room, whither he had ascended after
dinner tu pass an hour in such sociability as thc situation offered, for they
had long ago disclosed to each other
a fund of geniality unsuspected of the
world. Also Margatet had discovered
that he was as simple -minded uml guileless us a child iii the matter of petty
conventions; and, with scant respect
fur thom herself, promptly dropped
thim from her own scheme of life; so
his tirst Intermittent visits fast led to
a customary evening ihat which they
both looked forward tu as the chief
ovent of the day. His attitude toward
her was unique in he:* experience. He
always called her Margaret, ami did it
v.ith the same fatherly familiarity wilh
which he wuuld havo culled a small
girl in short skirts by her Christiuu
name. At first she did not know what
tu make of it, nor how tu adjust herseif
to it, but there was no denying that it
was pleasant. It made her feel vory
young and induced a buoyancy of
spirit winch was rapidly undermining
lho gravity befitting a worn and weary
teacher of elementary music.
On thc particular evening in question,
however, cbeorfulaoaa seemed iu abeyance, ovorpowerod by the hush of somo-

"Much as t have it at heart—and it
moans more to mo than I can possibly

"Thank you," said Margaret feebly.

Thoro being nothing sho could answer

"(Jf courso such a thing would huve,

"People of forty-five don't adopt

"Twenty—" Ho was tuo astonished
to round out tho number.
" Yes, twenty-eight."
"Why, Margaret, you're not twenty-
eight."
"Indeed] I am, every year of it."
"It's incredible. I've thought of
you, I've treated you as a mere child."
He became woefully confused ut the
recollection.
"As to your being old," said Margaret, "it's ridiculous,"
"Forty-six in a few months."

His face was very sad, his voice had

"Margaret, what did you thiuk I

As fast na tho wax is produced it is

cells uf the femnle servuuts—the non-
producers—there nre two other kinds
of cells—tlioso of tlie males ami those
of the mothers or "queens." When
tho wax masons have built, a large part
of tho new tier of eells and placed some
of tho partitions farther apart, with intermediate juncture cells, they build
on tho same tier cells of the same appearance- but much larger than tho
•workers' cells. The larger colls are
for tho drones, and their proportion is
about one-third of the whoio number
of cells.
I ii some cases, when tho colony is
about to swarm and to emigrate to a
distant point, the workers build a few
large cells, and in thom the mother of
the hive lays eggs of large size, the
larvae evolved from whicli receive special nourishment; ami the bees thus developed aro perfect females. They are
tho mother bees of the new colony, or
females who remain hi tho old hivo
und take tho place of tho departed
mothers.
Scientists attribute the constructive
knowledge of the beo to instinct ac*
quired by heredity through thousands
of centuries. Uut when bees are
hived under conditions never known
in nnture—when, for Instance, bees ore
put into ready-made, artificial hives
containing nothing but eells of workers
— tho been do not settle down to business. They look about thc hive and
study it. If there is tho least space
between the tiers of cells nml the sides
of the hive, they set to work ami construct, males' eells—cells much larger
than workers' cells. If there in space
above the hive, although the bee never
normally places males' eells at the
top, the dissatisfied workers set n tier
of males' cells above the top tier.
If there is no space in the artificial
edifice where the indignant bees can
build males' eells according tu their
notion, of what honeycomb ought to be,
the females enter the artificial ells and
deposit workers' eggs in every cell. All
the cells contain workers' eggs; not a
mala's c^ can bo found. After a
time the colony notes the link of males.
Then squads of masons, specially detailed for the emergency, break down some
of tin* partitions of tho workers' cells
and build the largo celts known to tho
bee mothers us suitable for drones'
Oggs. , It is possible that the ordinary
work of bees is accomplished by In*
stiii'-t, but the work performed by the
bee in times of crisis seems to be nctu-
ated by nothing less than reasoning,
WINTER STORAGE OF CARS
When the use ol the ear is given up
for tho cold weather season, tho car
should bo jacked up off the tiros, somo
air let out. of them su ns tu reduce tho
pressure, ami ihe whoio washed very
thoroughly, particular attention being
paid to Hie removal of ull traces of oil.
The Automobile is authority for tho
statement that water dues not harm tho
tiros or t..o rubber composing them in
tho least, but oil und gasoline do. Iu
case it is desired tu go into the matter
n littio further, and do a more thorough
job of putting thom up for the winter,
proceed as follows:
After washing thoroughly, take tho
tires off tho wli cols, take tho tubes
out of the shoes, paint the inside of
the shoo und outside of the tube with
graphite, wrap both very carefully in
cloth or heavy paper, paper over cloth
being the best, then store iu some dry,
dark place, preferably where the torn-
pornture is very even ull winter uml
not far from 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
Llghl is a great enemy ni rubber, as Ib
also heat; by putting the protective
covering around the Urea, then Ke-p-
iug them nway frum light nnd heat,
there will be absolutely no dedri.ration, no matter huw long they may bo
kept pu' away This method of pro-
COiluro is really worth tin time it ta.os.
Of course, i,our uf the ordinarv oils
used for paint Indies would ba suitable
fur this purpose, as they would rut the
rubber. Whal is meant by painting
with graph 1 to is that it should be applied in its powder form,
CHRISTMAS TREE.S FOE THE
BIRDS
Four thousand school children in
Northamptonshire, England, ined in
a movement to decorate Chi itmaa
trees for the birds last year. Living
treeB in their home garden, were hu'i;j
with meat bones, suet, split cocoanats
and other dainties. Grain and other
seeds wero scattered about od the
ground, and pails and pans of water
were supplied. The birds came by
thousand-" and feasted. The supplies
were daily replenished tun: ugh the

Dear Sii—As I looked ovor .your
paper last week I was surprised to
see, an application I'm- another
llbonso tn sell "Intoxicating liquors.'' That wonl Itself, looks to
nie, to bolong to Siiiiin himself,
I suppose thai is why it was print-
led in the smallest type. Any true
Citis-oii who has lived in ibis City
for tho past throo yours, must know
'iluil license lo sell "Inloxloating
drink" is mil helpful in nny way.
I will nslc the question again,   who
j IlllS been lii'lielilleil liy lliis "Intoxicating Liquor" business in Chilliwuek? Tiiis is ii full- question ami
ought in be thoughtfully uiiBwored,
If Ibis was refori-lng lo the water
system it   would  bo   fairly   and
!squarely iliselisseil nml is Ibere   uul
fur greater need lo talk vonsonitbly
about Ihe snle uf "luloxientiilg
drink" whieh ouiiBos so much
sorrow, sn niiiny ruined lives of
I men nnd buys, sn muny ivrolehed
liniiies, broken hearlod wives nml
•neglected dent' little uhildrcii.
jWhnt dues ii iill moan? Did ynu
over think   of  lliis'.'   Now   if  the
| l.ieense ('iiininissiiinei's   grillll   Ibis
| new lieelise ur reiieiv the ul her twu.
wbu will prnlil ?   Will   their   own
boys? Nul   Will  anybody's buys?
'Nn!   Will   Ihe   hotels   be    bottor
hoarding  huuses'.'  Nu!   Will   thai
locality be safer and more pciwoful
lu live in? A  Ihniisainl  times  Nu!
Dues the liooiiHod bur, eiiuso the sale
of''Intoxicating liquor"  In cease,
in other places?   Aro thero not   in
this City many moro drunkards toil duy   tban    when,   we    hail   "no
J license."    What   are we   going
to do to stop  this   lawful   sale   of
intoxicating drink?    Statistics tell j
us that tho saloons of this country

I were bore in uur City   during   tho ,
past year?    The claim  that   the;
licensed saloon furthers legitimate I
business    in  a    community,    is.
effectively answered in the .following
experience. "This City, substituted
license  for  prohibition,"  said  a
I business man.   "I did  not think'
JI tho  change eould  effect business
f | much, but in less thnn three months
Jil knew heller.    Working men who
hud always   taken  their  months.'
wages homo in full, under prohibition,   soon   formed   the   habit  of
leaving hull'or mote of   it iu the]
licensed saloon where Ihey now  gol
lor drink.    As u result their  wives,
have less, often nothing at   all,  to
pay for home necessities."   1 have
yet to Iind the man who can .show-
when and where the licensed bur
helps any good business.    Any close
observer   must   admit   that    Kims
51 and Bottles go  together.    Money
spent by wage earners for  Intoxicants cannot buy clothes and food.
A child climbed upon his Father's
knee and asked,   "whieh   way   will
you vote, Daddy?   wet   or dry"?
"wet     of    course"    replied    tho
parent," the saloons   help   to  pay
my taxes. The little fellow hail lieen
deeply impressed by a lecture that
evening re voting wet or  dry,  and
he failed to comprehend,   how   his
own father could not understand as
he did.    He then asked,   "Daily!
ain't 1 worth   more  to  you than
your  taxes?    If  you   vote    wet,
maybe some day I'll  lie a drunkard."   That small son   wanted   to
know which is most vital, a human
life or a mere tax   levy.   Should a
father value a few dollars   paid   in
just taxes, above  the very  life  of
his own child.    It was  a  sleepless
night  for   tbnt   father,   for   those
dreadful words kepi ringing in   his
cars, "If you vole wet Daddy tiia.v-
lie I'll Ih- a drunkard  some   duy."
Today that father says "that boy is
WOrtll more   lo   nu-   than   all  llie

I had pulled down the walla of my
houao and was living my life opon to
tho view of tho street." Por a man
wlni.se homo means what it does to nie,
thoro'fl nothing pleasant about tlmt.
However, I received some letters following that brief article which made
Ihe discomfort seem worth while. My
wife and I read thom over with something like awe. Thoy came from Maine
and tbey came from Texas; they camo
from tho north, they came from tho
south, until we numbered our unacoii
friends by the hundred. Running
through those letters was the racking
cry tliat had once rondo_ our own
hearts—"How to get out!" As we
read some of theni our throats grew
lumpy,
"Ood help them," said my wife
over nad over again.
As we read others, we felt very glad
that our lives had been in some way
;ni Inspiration to them. Alter talking
the whoio matter over we decided that
if it helped any to let pooplo know
how wo ourselves pulled out, why it
was our duty to do so. l-'or that purpose, which ia the purpose of this book,
-iirloton is as good a namo as any.
My pooplo were all honest, plodding,
middle-class Americans, Thoy stuck
where thoy were born, accepted their
duties as they camo, earned a respectable living and died without having
money enough left to make a will

a bit more ambition stirring within him
than liis ancestors. He started in the
lumber business for himself in a small
way, toil with the lirst call for troops
sold uut. and enlisted. Jfo did not distinguish himself, hut lie fought in more
battles than many a man who came, out
a captain, lie didn't quit until the
war was over. Then he crawled back
Iiuiii.- subduod and sick, lie refused
evor to draw a pension because he felt
it was as much a man's duty to light
for his conntry as for his wife, lie
secured  a  position as head clerk nnd
confidential man with an old established Lumbar tirm and hero ho stuck tin-
rest of his life. He earned a decent
living, and in tho course of time married and occupied a comfortable homo.
My mother died when I was ten, an.l
after that father sold his bouse and w--
boarded. It was a dreary enough life!
fnr both of us. Mother was ihe aorl ul

the family tradition, father accepted
liis lot stoically and as Iinui. Nn one
iu our family ever married twice. With

home ceased and that was th.- end of
it.

was trying to sew. 1 went fo his sido

He looked up but he didn't know mo.
lie never knew me again, lie died a
fow days afterwards. I found theu
that ho bad invested all his savings in
a wild rat mining scheme. They had
been swept away.
Sn al eighteen I was left alone with
the only capital lhat succeeding general inns nf my family ever inherited-—

death waa a heavy blow, but thu mere

the prospect rather roused me. I had
•.miked iii tlm inimdi'iiiii atmosphere of
the boarding houso bo long that tlio
idea nl' having to earn my 0WU living
camo rather as an advonturo. While
dependent nn my father, I had been
chained to this one room und this one
city, but now 1 felt as though the
whole wide world had suddenly been
opened up to me. I had ao particular
ambition beyond earning ;i comfortable
living, and I was sure enough at
eighteen of being able to do this. If
I chose, I could go to sea—there wasn't
a vessel but wlmt would take so husky
a youngster; if I wished, I could go
into railroading-- here again there was
a demand for youth and brawn. 1
could go into a factory and learn
manufacturing, or I could go into un
oiliee and leurn a business. I was
young, 1 was strong, I was unfettered.
There is no one on earth so free as
such a young man, I could settle in
New Vork or work my way west and
settle in .Seattle or go north into Canada. My legs wore stout and I could
walk If nm I's-mry. And wherever I
was, 1 had only to slop and offer the
use of my back and arms in return for
food and clothes. Most men feel like
this only once iu their lives. In a few
years they become fettered again—this
time for good.
Having no inclination towards the
nne thing or tlie other, I took the first
opportunity that. offered. A chum of
mine had entered the employ of the
United Woollen Company und seeing
another vacancy there in the clerical
di par!ment, he persuaded mo to job.
him. I began at five dollars a week
I was put at work adding up columns
of figures that had no more meaning
to me than the problems in tlie school
arithmetic. Hut it wasn't hard work
and my hours were short and my associates pleasant. After a while I took
a certain pride in being part of this
vast enterprise. My chum and 1 hired
a room together and we both felt like
pretty important business men as we
bought our paper on tho car every
morning nnd   went  down  town.
It took close figuring to do anything
but live that first year, and yet we
I pushed nur way with the crowd into
thp nigger heavens and saw most of the
good shows. I hud never been to tho
theatre before antl I liked it.
Next yiar I received a raiso of Ave
dollars and watched the shows from
the rear of the lirst balcony. That is
the only change the raise made that 1
can remember, except that I renewed
my stock of clothes. The only thing
I'm sun* of is thnt at thc end of the
secmd year I didn't have anything loft
over.
This is true of the next six years.
My salary wns advanced steadily to
twenty dollars, and nt that time it took
just twenty dollars a week for me to live.
I wasn't extravagant and i wasn't dissipated, but ovory raise found n new
domaud, It seemed to work automatically. Vou might almost say that
our salaries woro imt raised at all, but
that we were promoted from a ten dollar plane of life to a fifteen dollar
plane and then to a twenty. And we
all went together—that is the men who
-tailed together. Kadi advance meant
unconsciously the wearing of better
-billies, rooming nt bettor houses, ent
ing at better restaurant- smoking bet-
tei tobacco, and mme frequent amusements. This left us bettor satisfied
of course, but after ail it lefl us just
■.*. here we began, Life didn 't mean
much to auy nf us ai this time, and if]
we wero inclined to look ahead why

hnd been forehanded ami of a saving
nature, he couldn't have done much

liked Ihem.
Ruth was such a woman as my
mother would have taken to; clear and
laughing on the surface, but with great
depths hidden among the golden shal
lows. Her OXporionco had all been
among tin* meadows and mountains, so
lhat she was simple and direct aad
fearless in her thoughts an.l acts. Vnu
never had to wondor what she meant
wheu she spoke, and when yuu camo io
know her you didn't even have to wonder what she, was dreaming about. And
yot she was never the same because she
was always growing. But the thing that
woke me up most ui all from the lirst
day I met her was the interest she took
in everyone and everything. A fellow
could not bore liuth if ho tried. She
would have the tiiue of her life sitting
on a bench in the park ur walking down
the street or just staring uut tho window of her mint's front room. And
that street looked like Sunday afternoon all the week long.
1 began tn do some figuring when 1
was alone, but there wasn't much satisfaction in it, 1 had the clothes in
my room, a good collection of pipes,
and ten dollars of my last week's salary. 'A mar. couldn't get man red on
thnt even to a girl like Both, who
wouldn't want much. 1 cut down here
and there, but I naturally warned to
appear well before Ruth, and so the
savings went into new lies and shoes.
In this way I fretted along for a fow
months, until 1 screwed my* conn
to ask for another raise. Thosi „_,.,
prosperous days fur the United Woollen
and everyone from the president to tho
ofiice boy was* in gnnd humor. I went
to Morse, head of the department, and
told him frankly that I wished to got
married and needed more money. That
wnsn 't :i business reason for an increase, but those of us who had worked
then,* some years had come to f-el like
one of the family, and it wasn't unusual for the company to raise a man
at such a time. He said he'd see what
he could do about it, and when I open*
ed my pay envelope the next week I
found an e.xtra live in it.
I went direct from thc offieo to Ruth
and asked her to marry me. She didn't
hang her head nor stammer, but she
looked nie .(might iu the eyes a moment longer than usual ami answered:
'All right, BHly,"

rich agricultural district in Hampshire,
met "a inuil in velveteens, with a gun
uver his shoulder." Uo calls this man,
who was dressed like a poacher, "tho
typical rustic" of tho rogiou. "Jn
him lies no hope of tho future. "While
lie remains, tho husbandman departs."
He describes ouo of tho villages,
Coonibo by name. Coombo, otymolu-
gically, means a "hollow valley" in
tlm iSuutli Downs of England, generally peopled and having a church in
the centre. The Coombo this writer
visited had lost all its inhabitants,
shepherds, plowmen, carters, etc, by
migration to the towns. "At Coombe,
lying stagnant iu tho cup of tho hills,
wu come upon grim tragedy, unrelieved."
"The field I crossed to reach the
village wus full of withered, unbar*
coated grasses and tall seed-bearing
wild carrots and thistles, shoulder high.
1,'ubbits scurried awuy at almost every
step, while pheasants and partridges
filled tiie air with a whir of wings. The
lirst cottage I lighted on was literally
I ailing down. The thatch had long
disappeared, leaving the rafters and
beams bun* us bones tn the skies; the
garden a waste uf luxuriant weeds,
where brambles were trying to cover
this rueful desolation. As I entered
the village I passed a row of four cot*,
tages under one thatch, Only one was
occupied, the othor threo, with tlieir
doors ami windows bn 1 term I ia, had
been given over to tin* rats to play
havoc in and for the wind to wlilatlo
through, Prom the occupied collage
issued a slatternly young womnn with
a sporting dog, probably a gamekeeper's, at her heels. They fell im)
thai many of the cottages in tlm village
and must of the laud are ownod by a
cily mngnnto, and lhat wheu a family
loaves a cottage, to seek employment
or the higher wages nml the larger
freedom of the towns, no attempt is
made oil hor to repair or to relet the
cottage. Por an Influx of human life
may disturb tlie pheasants. Where
pheasants are wanted, the peasant is
nnt. Vory much thi* sutuu thing seems
to bo dominant at Coombe. Coombo is
uow uue vast  rabbit-warren,"
Standing on one of these height.. ...
Km-I nnd'« southern hills where Lord
Macaulny describes the beacons a
blazing to warn the country uf the aj
proacb of Philip's Armada or to colt,
brato England's triumphs, he gloomily
observes:
"Hut to-day, though it would not be
difficult to find the rubbish to bum
from the acres and acres given over ti
sport, it would lie difficult to get tlu
men frum tho hillside or valley tu build
the beacon. A gibbet to-day --.tamls
as a landmark, nrrcsting, sinister,
pointing, on the right and on tho left
to an empty countryside."
Ho fin-Is all "the beautiful wooded
estate of Norman Court" given up to
game. The peasantry have vanished,
"Starvation, it is true, may not be
.0 apparent on the countryside as it
wa-i of yore. It has merely shifted its
quarters. As the people leave tho
countryside, starvation, attaching itself
as a cnmp-followcr to the rural exodus,
finds its lair in the foul dens uf the
cities." Walking through this fertilu
district, he remarks:
''The absoncg ot- Itumuu beings iu

begin to wonder if you really are iu

Mr. Green, who is n Conservative,
blames Mr. Cobdea and his disciple,
l.loyd George, for the desolation of
England, lie vituperates free trade
and demands small holdings for Hodge

*A BRIEF FOR THE CENTIPEDE
The centipede—which really never
has a hundred legs, in spite ui his name
—has always enjoyed a bad reputation.
A Frenchman, At. J, Kunckle d'Hereu*
lais, recently came to the defense of
this insect in a paper before the Academy of Sciences in Paris.
lu the first place, the animal is uot
pobonous, ns is commonly supposed.
There is only one authentic case of poi-
snning by the centipede on record fur
America. That was reported by Dr.
Josiah Curtis, uf Washington. A woman was walking in her room at night
in bare feet and was stung or bitten
by a centipede between the toes. The
bite was followed by inflammation and
severe pain that lasted for thirty-six
hours. Mr. d'Hoivutais (piestions even
this case. In cause the symptoms were
wry much like those produced by the
sting of a bee or hornet and also because experiments bad been mado with
much larger species of centipedes and
these were always harmless.
Hut he nlso finds the animal useful.
On several occasions he came upon individuals of the species scutigera
i-oleoptruta catching fiios and uther insects. The centipede grasps the Ily
with the front legs and quickly bites it
iu the thorax, injecting a juice that
kills the Ily instantly. When there aro
many dies ubout, the centipede will kill
several before beginning to feed. Instead of chewing at its prey, it sucks
out the soft parts through a puncture,
leaving (lie head, legs, wings, and other
Said parts.
Another argument for the harmless*
ness oi the centipede is deducted by the
author from the fact that when the animal is grasped it does not try to dcfoil I
itself, but seeks rather to escape. It
often escapes by "leaving its legs behind"—that is, tlie aniiiml automatically throws oil" a number of legs th.it
have been ,*nught by the enemy and
limps off on the remaining nm"--. It
can easily spare a dozen or two of its
thirty legs, for the lost number; -m be
"'generated.
The centipede is found pretty v.ell
scattered in nil parts of tlm world. The
ipcclos common in the United States,
icutigera forceps, was reported over
twenty years ago us devoting the nights
to killing hnuse-llies. Ard later uu observer detected one in tho act of capturing u bulterlly much larger than it-

The tube, replaced on the road,

this delay, trouble and expense is the
direct result of traveling 00 a deflated

Always initiate tires with air, never

Perhaps the Germans would bo sorry
to hear that England's sun is setting,
but ono of tbeir own editors evidently
doesn't think so, for, in the "Deutsche
Huudschau," wo find a slashing article
proving that tbo British Empire Is on
the rapid road to ruin, from tho pon of
Count Vay vou Vaja, a Hungariau
nobleman of prominence and literary
eminence. Ho is a member of tho House
I of Lords and of tho Reformed Church
Synod of his native land. Ho declares
he is a friend and admirer of England,
where he has travelled a good deal. So
evidently bo speaks "moro in borrow
than in anger" as he depIorcB tho passing of "tho Victorian Era," which
was glorious "in the material well-
being of a gigantic empire" an thnt ol
Elizabeth was iu "intellectual greatness." He dates the tlmo of decline
from the Boor war and .ays:
"That terrihlo war was indeed (iually
decided in favor uf tho English. 1 tut
jit what n price? By, that agonizing
fit niggle the whole nation wan shaken
ami Ihe Achilles heel of England's
war system laid bare. The hitherto
iindiaimid halo of British Warlike glory
vanished liko a shadow or a roll.ctloii
in one day. Other and youugor nations
•.plan-; into pro-omiuoneo with unexpected rapidity. Gormany and tho Un
Ited States of _morien showod thorn*
solves formidable rivals to Eugland,
■ml .udy Irom a political point of view,
hut in tlm domain of eomuieicr. The
markets of tho world woro uo longer
monopolized by tho English."
The rosull was that Englaud crow
di-imirali/.'d and discouraged. Kmigra
linn to America had opened English
,-vi.i in broader ideas, and to tho doslro
Cor Croedom, Then Ideas bogot tho
Labor party, which sent representatives
lu Parliament and propagated Socialism.    The Socialists in  public speeches
treated Parliament ns a "moro
coterie"; the Ministry wns "no safeguard to political freedom," it was a
ring of "bandits or tricky charlatans.''
"The crown was a sinecure, a burden
mi the people which should be abolished for tlm guud of tho couutry." Tho
Govornmont tolerated these utterances
from motives of prudence, but tho re-
-ult oi them was that "the Government,
tho law, the army, the court, all, in
short, which people' had been taught
to respect, wero openly treated with
contempt." This was anarchy, and tlio
Count thinks that although Russia and
North America have their anarchists,
"it is undeniable that the activity of
anarchism has reached its highest point
of danger among the working classes
of Croat Britain. '
The change iu the lower orders was
followed by what this writer styles
"the anarchy of the aristocracy and
upper class " Political life is degraded, statesmen are deteriorating,
demagogs and sophists have taken tho
place of the Disraelis and Gladstones of
another era. The tide of social and
moral anarchy is setting in, as is shown
iu "the contrast between tho dignified
Court of Queen Vutoria and that of
King Edward VII. and his 'smart
set. To  this  set   '' America,  Aus
tralia, South Africa, India furnished
their share of nabobs, nouveaux riches,
financiers,etc." "The contagion of thu
royal court Spread abroad." "The
most trilling usage of thc King wns
looked upon ns establishing an inviolably l'jlo of conduct." The Court of
Victoria "wns founded upon the uoble
principle, 'God ard my Right' "; in
that of Edward VU., "people seemed
to prefer the saying, 'After me the
Deluge.'"
But the most fatal sign of England's
decadence is tho predominating influence of the American woman in society,
of which wc read:
"American women arc clover in adapting themselves to England's forms
uml customs. Externally they can make
themselves exact copies of an English
pattern, and on great occasions, when
they don the antique costume of tho
peeress, they produce a fine impression.
Hut the. individuality remains out of
harmony and through all shows tho
spirit tif the 'Vankee.' "
Under the iultuenco of these enchantresses, "English morals aud English
customs disappear, superseded by thosu
of America. American shops, Amerimu
products, and often American bnrs aro
fouud in every town in Croat Britain."
Tin* Count thus continues his melancholy stury:
"That Americanism makes itself felt
in the most exclusive English circles is
shown by tho fact that so many lords
and other men of title have married
heiresses frcin tho Tinted States, lu

Sunday is uo longer a day of rest."
Tho consequence is that as "deterioration shows itself in private life long
before it infects the public administration, so corruption hns seized upon tho
moneyed class first." Tho result must
be "an eiifeeblcment of the race, of tbo
character and moral habits, accompanied by a laxity of religious principles which is spreading far aud
wide.''
Ho concludes by comparing tho splendor of the late coronation to a mirage,
a Fata Morgana, rising up amid tlie
luxury'which rivals tho dreams of the
Arabian Nights. Ho speaks of Westminster Abbey, crowded with "princes
from Kast and West, nabobs und multimillionaires, with their gold und silver,
their priceless jewelry." Never was a
coronation so gorgeous. "Who would

COUNTRY KOADS
The oliler roads in our country, especially in New England, commonly
lead one over Ihe tops of hills, oven
whoro a shorter way between two
points could havu been found Liy thu
valleys.    The  Mime  thing is true  with
regard to the roads of England,
Pains have been taken liy inure than
one writer of history to show how tho
|_ngliBU pooplo havo been occupying
lowor and lower ground as the centuries
passed. _■ list, thu high lands only wero
cleared ami cultivated. It was only
there tl at the mul was dry onongh uud
warm enough for tillage. Later generations occupied the lower slopes, until
now the diaiuugu of tho country has
been carried to such a point thnt oven
tho feus and marshes can bo brought
under cultivation.
Something lllto such a course of clearing and sottling marked the growth of
New England, -More than all else, perhaps, was tho force of tradition and the
habits of thinking and feeling which
tlie colonists brought with them.   Their
Bank of Montreal
Ninety-fourth Annual Meeting of
Shareholders
The Bank of Montreal lias -just completed 94 years of business in Canada,
which in the history of a young country
is no inconsiderable period. The 94th
annual meeting was held on December
4tb, with President 11. B. Angus in thc
chair. In many ways thy meeting was
one of the most memorable in the history of tbo bank, owing to tho fact
that thc net profits for the year were
tho largest on record and that the retirement of Sir Edward Cloustoti as
gonoraJ manager wus announced. Another feature of more* than ordinary
interest was tho re-adjustment of thc
salues of the bank promises. For years
theso wero valued at $0011,000, but a
recent appraisal increased this to $-1,-
000,000. Tho $-,-100,000 thus secured
was partly used in increasing the rest
account, which now stands at a sum
equal to the paid-up capital, whilo tho
balance wns carried to tho profit and
loss account.
The total assets of the bank uow
stand at $880,000,000. making it ono of
the strongest financial institutions on
tho continent. A more detailed examination of the report shows that
the net profits for the vear amounted to
♦2,270,618, ns Compared with $1,707,1)92
for tho previous year. Tho balance of
profit and loss carried forward for the
present year was $1,855,185, or practlc*
nlly double the figures for 1910, which
amounted to $001,780, Premiums on new
bank stock issued by the bank during
tho year amounted tn $305,077, while
the re-adjustment of the bank premises
account brought in an additional $_.-
400,000. Thus n total of slightly over
$7,000,000 was made available fur distribution this year, of which $1,110,000
was expended in dividends, $8,000,000
credited to tho rest account and $708,-
000 to now premises account, leaving a
balance of $1,855,000 to bo carried forward as balance of profit and loss. A
further examination of the report shows
that tho bank hns deposits bearing interest of nearly $186,000,000, while its
deposits not bearing interest amount
to over $46,000,000, The amount of
call ami short loans in Groat Britain
and the United States consists of over
$42,000,000, while the current loans and
discounts in Canada and elsewhere
amount to over $121,000,000, The latter
ihowi an increase ot aver $0,000,000,
which indicates that Ihe bank continues
to do its full share In furthering the
development Of the country and tint il
cdiitilines to grow with the country,
Tlio call and short loans which the hunk
keep*! in New York ami London, while
returning only a small rate of intorost,
nre found to be a wise provision, The
call of these loans placed in London
and New Vork is fir less disturbing to
Canadian business than if they were un
call in Canada.
Altogether tlie showing made by the
Hank of Montreal is a very satisfactory une, and reflect! the hlgnist credit
upon Ihe directors and upon the general
manager, who is now relinquishing the
position which he has held for su many
years,  Wm successor will bo Mr. II. V.
Meredith, who has been associated all
his lit'.* with the bank whose affairs he
will in future direct.
The address of Prosidont R, B. Angus
was, as Usual, n careful resume of the
financial,   commercial   aud   industrial
expansion of the Dominion. The Hank
of Montreal, with its many branches
scattered throughout the country nml
iti intimate relationship with every
phase of our national life, is able to
hroiont author)tftttvo reports regarding
the country's growth nnd development.
Without exception, this year's report
by tlm president wns full'of Optimism.
That this was not unfounded is shown
by the bank's record for 1911, which
was tin* most successful in tho 91 '.«-*ars
of its history.
ambition und prido was tn make their
now home as nearly liko the old oao as
climate aud soil would permit.
It is easy to find many reasons why
tho early roads should go uver the hills.
It is thero that the soil is dryest, that
the woods aro most open and best lighted. From the hilltops views could bo
had of the country about.
If tho first paths led over tho hills,
and tlio earliest clearings were mnde upon tho hilltops, it was natural that the
roads should keep tho same location to
tho present time.
DEPOSITS ON CYLINDERS
It is a common belief among motorists that the hard carbon residue found
in the cylinders and on the valves is
the result of too great a quantity of
lubricating oil. This is true to a certain extent,' but the nard doposit may
bo formed even when the proper
amount of the best quality of oil is
used. It has been found that the nucleus of this deposit consists of tho
products ot Imperfect combustion of tho
mixture, which collect on the piston
hear] and walls of the top of tho cylinder in the form of n sticky mass. This
Ctltchos bhe dirt and dust from the
road as it is " breathed" into the
motor through tho carburetor, nnd the
resulting compouml gradually hardens
until n sullieient deposit is collected to
make a thorough 0 V Or haul lag ami valve
grinding necessary. It is consequently
important not only that tlm proper
grade and amount of lubricant should
be used iu tho cylinder, but tho carburetor should bo regulatod to deliver
the proportion of air and gasoline vapor
that forms tho most perfect-burning
charge for each explosion.
THE TURTLE'S PARADISE
Many turtles are to be encountered in
South American waters nil along the
Orinoco, but upon tlie island uf Buena
Vista nature seems to have arranged
everything for the turtle's convenience,
and tlio number of the creatures is there
vory great.
The islaad is about a league in length
and U surrounded by sloping banks of
sand. In this fine sand the turtles deposit their eggs, whicli aro hatched
out by tho heat of the suu.
Some time in the mouth of February
thousands of turtles come out upon the
shore of the island as well ns upon the
neighboring banks of the river and begin promenading up and down as if ascertaining where it is entirely safe to
lay their eggs. But they do not begin
laying until March. Then they dig a
number of little holes in the sand, in
whicli each female deposits from eighty
to one hundred and twenty eggs.
The natives declare that the turtles
will not begin to lay their eggs until
the Southern Cross, which is tho characteristic object of the firmament in
tho southern hemisphere, is completely
formed—that is, not until the four
stars which form the cross have moved
on through the heavens until they aro
perpendicular to the horizon. '
lt is reported by a member of one exploring expedition in Venezuela that at
midnight, when tho turtles wero being
wached by thc naturalists, tho great
mass of the creatures had gone back into tho river without laying, lenviug but
a few of their companions behind thom
to act as sentinels. But nt half past
two in the morning, nt the moment
when the Southern Cross seemed exactly pcrpeudieular to tho horizon, a great
commotion wus perceived on tho shore
of tbo river and thc turtles wero coining out in battalions.
They scattered rapidly in every direction, digging up tho sand, laying
their eggs and covoring them, apparently taking great pains to leavo tho sur-
fuco as they had found it.
Tho members of the expedition captured throo of theso turtles, the shell
of oue of which measured eighty-five
inches in length by twenty-three in
width. Its weight was more than sixty seven pounds.
The nntives capture large numbers of
the eggs of these turtles, as well as
of the creatures themselves, which art*
used in the manufacture of a kind of
oil.
The nppcaranco of tho turtles upon
tlio beach at the :i pa rent moment of
the complete formation of tho Southern
Cross on each night during their laying season, is, of course, due to coincidence, nnd tho superstitious natives
connect tho two circumstances just as
tho ancient Egyptians connected tho
setting of tbe constellation Arcturus
with tho rising of the I-iile.
