the 31st October, 101L*. showed het
profits for tbo year of $2,518,000.
which with a balance brought forward
of fl.Sa.5,000 and the premiums on new

total of over $5,207,000 available for
distribution. Quarterly dividends
and two bonuses absorbed $1,894,000.
The sum of $1,000,000 was transferred

is doubtful if lho Bank of Montreal

In Paris al about 2 o'clock Wednesday morning a woman was picked up
iu the tunnel outside St. Cloud Railway Station. She was lying on tho
Hue, and both her legs had been badly crushed by a passing Ihraln.
She told a tragic story. Her name
is Vlctolre Lebegue, and she is an attendant in one of the Parisian theaters. She had taken tho last train
to her home In the suburbs last, night
and was accompanied part of the way
by a young man named Boncour, to
whom she is engaged to be married.
Boncour left lier at Asnleres, and

She tried to pull the alarm cord, bu!

from the carriage into the darkness
of tbe tunnel. She remembers no
more till  she was found.

London Symphony    Orchestra,    With
Hcecliam  Leading, Scores in
Berlin,— No othor foreign crches-
itra or conductor liar, ever received
more wliole-heurted praise from Berlin's usually grudging critics than that
accorded to Thomas Beecham's symphony orchestra, which gave Us flrat
concert here last night. With th.
exception ot passing flings at Mr,
Beeeliam's indiscreet gesticulations
with tho baton, it ls the unanimous
judgment tbat tbe English players and
their lender provided Berlin with genuine artistic pleasure.
The Local Anzeiger says; 1'rom the
purely technical standpoint the Londoners make an excellent Impression.
They aro apparently so good an orchestra as utterly th obviate the necessity of such personal mnnnerisms as
those to which Mr. Boecbam is addicted. Iio himself has no need to resort to such externalities as ho is without doubt not only a thorough musician, but a born conductor.
Tlic Deutsche Tageszeitung says:
Mr, Beeeliam's orchestra scored a pronounced success. The lender ls a
temperamental, resouroeful conductor,
who directs his woll-drllled players
with undeniable warmth and expression.
Englishmen, says the Borse-Cour-
ler, especially violinists, play with
sovereign assurance. It must bo a
pleasure to bo tholr conductor. Mr.
Boeclinm is primarily a master of effects. Ho is most nt homo among
the modorn composers and ln operatic music. In this latter domain we
should like to see the temperament ot
this militant artist, at work. The
Tagblatt saj-3: "Mr. Beecham's orchestra stands comparison with tho best.
The Mozart Symphony was rendered
with exquisite delicacy. Tho English orchestra revealed masterly training. Mr. Beecham la a temperamental conductor, and he hns dono much

Violation of the   Rules   cf   Aviation
Leads to Very Serious
Paris, France.—M. Jacques Del-
cassc, the 23 year old son of the
French minister of marine, was seriously injured last week in one of
the most extraordinary accidents in
the history of aviation.
Two aoroplanes over Vlllacoublay
camo Into collision in the air, just as
two motor omnibuses might como Into
collision at a Btreet corner, because
ono of tbem took tho wrong turning.
An airman named Callardot asked
M. DclCasse, who has just finished his
military service to mako a flight in a
Breguet biplane. It was the young
man's flrst aerial Journey.
M. Collardot was circling contrary
to tlio rule of the air,—that Is turning
to tho left Instead ot to the right. \
Siamese oflicer named Nu Tha Tick,
who was flying a Nleuport monoplane,
was circling nenr Vlllacoublay, and
suddenly 11. Collardot saw thc mono-
piano swervo sharply and come right
nt him at a speed of sixty miles an
He thought that the Siamese pilot
would easily avoid him; bnt Na Tha
Tick could not get out of the way. The
monoplane dashed Into the side of the
biplane, and the two aeroplanes fell
in a tangled mass,
M, Collardot was very llttlo hurt.
Na Tha Tick was seriously injured j
about tho head, while M. Delcasso
sustained fractures ot tho right arm,
right leg and left collarbone. Hd

G.T.P. Town Planning
In a recent thoughtful review oT lh°
events ot 191L' a western writer lias
this to say of Grand Trunk Pacific
Xhe railroad's methods of building
a real town are most interesting.
Take for instance, the lino from Edmonton to Calgary, which runs
through 2;j;i raile3 of the richest farming country in tbo west and which
eventually extends to the International
boundary, where it will connect with
railways giving direct communication
to tho important cities of the Uni'.ed
States. .Along this line are all ot
the conditions which go to make up
wealthy farming communities, and
thriving young cities. Had the
Grand Trunk Pacific been Intent on
making sales alone, it might have
planted, boomed and sold a dozen
cities between Calgary and Edmonton, and might perhaps have made an
immediate profit of several million
dollars. But the rond looked ahead
to Ihe reaction. So it pent out its
best engineers and investigated, and
In lhe end decided to build but one
city in that distance of 2,!.! miles, Instead of several. At the same timo
it placed on a dozon or more-smaller
townsltf-s, which were in no way to
