lecture with a definition of the words
Patriot ism antl Loyalty and impressed on bor listeners tbo impni'tunec
of training  the youthful   mind  ill

for, to qhott- her words, "Thfl hoys
and girls of today will Is' the men

many, and though ono tuny claim
Canada as his "home," another
Australia nnd so on and fool a
pritle, and a just one, 111 his homo-
liind," il must be remembered tbat

"Tho house which greeted tbem on

wus a fair house, and lust night the
company played to an audience
which was more in keeping witli its
worth. The program is old country
in its ty]ie nud wns enjoyed to thu
full by the audience, whicli had

performance. The lirst half of the
programme consisted of musical
numbers by various members of the
eoinpany, each one of whom acquitted themselves admirably, nud the
second wns a musical comedy sketoh
witb a prairie sotting, "In the "Camp-

"The Yorkshire Lad in London,"

and collectively, is one of tlie most

small an electric force that a gal-

a BUdden nervous impulse from Ihe
eel's splnnl cord raises a potential
of many volts with very little heat
and so small an expenditure of matter as to defy the most expert chemist lo weigh it. Fireflies, glow

The Housewife Hay Use As Much "Gumption" in Spending the Family Income as
the Husband does in Earning it
"Gumption" is not a slang word, by any
means. It is Americanese for' 'practical sense''
It the housewife doesn't us it, generously, in
making purchases for the home, she will find
the family income always insufficient—grow-
ingly insufficient!
Iinpruilence---which is a form of non-gumption—will discount nml
make futile even tin increase in family income. For the easiest thing
iu tlio world is to drift along, paying a dollar too much for this thing
and a dime to much for that! And this is the invariable practice of
those buyers of family supplies who think it " too much trouble to
read tho ads." For, you see, the ads. are as important to the buyer
of home supplies as are the market reports to a broker.
Tho merchant's "store news" should be served to patrons, nnd prospective patrons, as promptly and as sntisfnctorily as he would make
delivory of goods.     To do this profitably use the Free'Press.

The Mukden Cemetery
A recent traveler through Manchuria Rives us a picture and description
( t the sreat cemetery which the Japanese have nearly, completed and
which some time ago they consecrated to the Russtau dead who fell
in the battles about Mukden. lu
iheir precipitate retreat the armies of
the Czar left thousands upou thousands of their fallen comrades unhur-
ieil. After Lhe signing of the treaty
of peace the soldiers of the Mikado
collected every last npno and every
bit of ragged uniform and every broken weapon which the Russians had
left upon the Held, and buried them
with soldierly honors. ln the centre
of this, vast plot they enclosed by a
white marble fencing a reserved space
for those who had evidently beeu ollieers. Over the graves of the common soldiers Iron crosses in the
Greek form were erected, and over
thn graves of the cuimnandlug ollieers
crosses of white marble. Then as
a pivot to the converging lines they
reared a terrace aud on the terrace
built, a marble temple, all at a cost of
50,000 yen. When the work was
ready Tor dedicatory rites they invited Russian ecclesiastics from Pekln,
Harbin and Viadivostock. together
with such military commanders as
were near, to assemble for religious
service In this chapel, where, amid
the assembled men of both races, tho
iand was solemnly consecrated as a
resting place for tho Russian dead.
We think wn have not done badly
when 50 years after the Battle of
Gettysburg we Invite the surviving
Confederates to meet ns where they
fought us, and with their Northern
fellow-citizens glvo thanks to-day for
a united country. But the .laps have
bettered, as well as anticipated, our
net. For within live years of tho
battle of Mukden they laid out the
field as a cemetery for their conquered enemies, burled them decently, had
religious rites celebrated by priests of
their own faith, and paid personal
tribute to the courage and loyalty of
the men they had vanquished. All
of this without one word of suggestion from out sido.

The Psychology of Italic*
Boctors of stylo In the writing of
English .leclare that the use of Italics
for emphasis Is a positive fault, showing weakness of cunsiruction and inability to express ideas strongly by a
r!g!if arrangement of words. Nevertheless, Italics are used deliberately
by some torceful writers to gain added
effect and to fasten the eye and tbe
mind of tl e render upon important
polms somewhat as a speaker will
strengthen his oration by vocal emphasis anU g"sture. Whatever may
ne said foi or against the use of italics
tliey certainly reveal the writer's
sense or relative Importance in tho
things be has written. He has
selected wouls and phrases, nnd has
given ihem special prominence. As
we note tbelr significance we bei;ln
to kfiow more of the man behind
the words. His choice of emphasis
tells us wlmt manner of man he Is.
His Italics are either an Index of his
nu-ntal or moral character.
We arj all writing history day bv
day. On every page some things
are written small, others stand out
'coldly in italics. Take up the book
it night and rend the story of the
day. It will he an Interesting record—perlians n startling one. Doubtless we shall feel very much like cor-
reetlnc the proof when we iind where
the Italics are set.—Christian Herald.

Site of Future Ships
Sir William White, a lending naval
architect, declared recently that the
facts that tend to limit the Incrcaso
In the else of ships nre chiefly commercial. I-argo Bhlps cost more to
build than Bmall ones, and are more
expensive to operate. Moreover
they aro net bo suro of obtaining
their complements of passengers or
cargo without delay. In addition,
comparatively few harbors possess
channels of sullicient depth or docks
large enough, to accommodate vessels even of the length and weight of
iho ManretnnlB. Sir William believes tha- although large ships will
continue to ply between a fow favored porta fur special services, and
even larger ones may bs built, the
great bulk of ocean trafflo will continue lo he carried by vessels o( moderate else. . .

the king culled upon tlle buron to cou-
