Useful Suggestions for Owners
ThiH in ihi' beginning of tho season
of dealings iii eggs for hatching und
dny old chickH. Many new recruits
to the runkft of the rapidly growing
Industry will hu added dining the.
next few months. Many of them' have
never kept a clitckon of any description, hut hnve for a long time harbored a ilesire to become possessed of
ii few of the feathered beauties. Their
tnates hh to breed Ih iih varied us the
number of breeds ,ynd varieties, Some
hnve a fancy for one variety, some
for another, and ko on. it is the
Biune old story repeated every season
with the exception that each season
adds an Increased fervor.
Some will select the egg route,
others the bnby chicks, for the entrance into the fancy. The degree of
success met by each Individual will
depend entirely on the individual
alone. Some seem peculiarly adapted to tbo successful management of
fowls, while others nre just the opposite. Mnny in their anxiety to
have their first venture a success,
overstep the one great, essential, com
mon sense, and by fuss and worry
kill the helpless little fellows with
kindness.
It should be bourne in mind that
when the chick makes his advent, into
this world, that nature hud supplied
it with sufficient nourishment to meet
nil requirements in this direction for
the first seventy-two hours. Thut
is, when the chick leaves the shell,
If it be a well matured and healthy
chick, it is fortified against starvation, with nn abundant supply ol
nourishment In the form of the yolk
of the eggs from which it wus hatched. Nature by a method peculiar to
herself, hns allowed the yolk to remain intact during the entire process
of Incubation, nnd then just before
tho exclusion or the chick, this is
taken into its abdomen, The truth
of this may be verified hy any novice
or those whom wo mny term skeptics
by n post-mortem examination of a
chiek that gives up the struggle th
first day or two. If the examination
is made upon n chick just hatched,
very little difference or change will be
noted in the appearance of the yolk
with the exception of the uot work of
fine veins, with which it hus beeu
supplied by the process of incubation
otherwise in form and size very little
will be noted.
The presence of the yolk in the ab
domen of the newly hatched chick, is
the strongest argument presentable
why we should refrain from feeding
the little fellows for the lirst two or
throe days, it is perfectly natural
for the little fellows to hustle nround
and pick ut small objects that appeal to the eye, but if wo allow them
food ns noon as they nro hatched, it
is only to invite disaster, und complications are sure to follow thnt will
somewhat dampen our ardor in regard to poultry raising.
The safe sufe wny to withhold food
for at leust forty-eight hours to give
them a chance to properly absorb
and assimilate the yolk, then give
them a little lino grit and a little
wnter with the chill removed, after j
they mny be fed sparingly ut frequent j
Intervals, always exercising euro that
their apparent hunger is not quite
satisfied.
Pin head out meal, rolled outs, j
stale bread, moistened with milk or
some brand of the various chick food
on the market, may be used for the
lirst lew days with success. After
a few dnys a dish of dry mush composed of bran, corn meal uud middlings, equal parts, mny be placed before them in shallow dishes, nnd later
on u small percentage of good fresh
beef senilis of line grade may be
added to the mush with good results;
occasionally a few lettuce leaves or
sprouted oats for green food will be
found advantageous. If this method
is followed und the quantities Increased ns the attendant, of good)
judgement thinks the demands re-
quire, very little trouble should be
experienced in securing the proper]
development of any brood of chicks
that nre endowed with the necessary
stamina nnd vigor.
Ko method has ever been devised
thnt will over successfully rear chicks
produced from weak nnd inferior!
stock. The breeding pen is the be-!
ginning of the chick's life, if health,
(tatnina and vigor ni* lucking here it
s nor reasonable to expect it to he
present in the chick.
You would not give n carpenter
lull tools nnd poor material and expect him to do a high class job. You
cannot expect satisfactory results
from nn inferior breeding pen; if one
essential is lncking, the chances ure
ten to ono that it will he greatly
magnified in the chick.
Premier McBride in London—Reciprocity Designed to Detach Canada
[from Empire
Hon. Richard McBride, premier of
Hritisb Columbia, who is now on a
hurried visit to London, is much interested in President Tuft's admission
to Colonel Roosevelt thnt Canada by
reciprocity would become nn adjunct
to the United Stntes of America.
"1 have never hoard such u blunt
admission before, but it. correctly represents tbe view we took in Canadn
before tho genernl election. The
American reciprocity movement," con
tinned Mr. McBrlde, 'wns deliberately
designed to detnch Canada from the
imperial domain and defeat the coming imperial preferential policy to
which Canada is fervently devoted.
In ii week's time Premier Borden, us
1 hope, will give the people of England his views ou this nnd other
questions of vast importance. Yon
will tind him a strong, straight nnd
sterling man, a good Ctinabiun und a
great Imperialist,"
.Speaking of the Dominion's naval
policy, premier McBride declared that
the Canadian electors condemned the
inadequate nnd inept naval scheme of
the Laurier government nnd the responsibility hud now heen assumed by
the Borden ministry of superseding it
with n brondor und more effective
plnn. "This is a mutter which closely
affects British Columbia. Since the
withdrawal of tho pacific squadron
we hnve been left practically defenseless on the Pacific const. We have
heen greatly impressed with tho vigor
nnd the strength of Mr, Winston
Churchill's naval policy und we have
hope nnd confidence thnt any naval
scheme in which he nnd the Canadian
government concur will restore to
British Columbia a full and fair measure of naval protection.

Canadian   Borrowing
It is beginning to look us if the
day of cheap money in London is
over. The recent issue of Vnncouver
4 per cent, debentures wns fnr from
being a popular success, nnd In consequence Montreal, Toronto and Otto
wn have decided to postpone proposed flotations, "Canada" refer-
Ing to tbe attitude of London towards Canadian issues, says:
"No sane publicist in the Mother
Country doubts for u single minute
thut Canada will repay every dollar
she hns borrowed from us; or questions that, ninety-nine per cent of the
money lent to her will be employed
to good advantage. Canada's credit
in Kuropc has not diminished by even
u minute traction, nnd Britain will
continue to readily supply nil the
funds which must be raised here for
its development for mnny years to
como. But hero, ns elsewhere, the
laws of supply and demand ure in op
oration, and if the absorbent powers
• if the British investor nre taxed beyond their capacity indigestion must
Inevitably follow. In addition to
this, some of the issues offered in
London of late hnve failed to come
up to the standard demanded by
those who have been instrumental in
maintaining Canada's credit at its
present high level, and it wns felt
that the time hud arrived to warn
Canadian financiers of the danger of

says: "Englishmen will ask themselves whnt wrong the British empire
has done to the United States that
the American government should be
llherutely sot to work to plot the absorption of the splendid dominion of
which our nation 'is so proud. At
best, it was an unfriendly net. Mr.
Tuft's letter proves how serious was
the danger nnd how warmly we

Discrimination Against the
West
Onus Placed on Railroads to Justify Rates
TORONTO—After hearing H. W,
WhlLln ol Winnipeg, counsel f,,r the
Dominion government, present elabsr
ate tables of figures showing the enormous discrimination against the
west, running in some cases to over
200 per cent, the railway commie
slon decided today thut the onus
must be placed on the railways und
they must Justify tbeir existing western rates. The inquiry, however, will
not stop at that, and nfter an interesting legal contest Mr. Whitlu and
James Blcknell, K.O., the government counsel won n decided victory
bv securing a ruling that every phase
of the freight rates will be Investigated, not only the question ol dis
crimination against the west but, if
necessary the reasonableness ol the
enst us well as the west, und the gen
eral hasis upon which they were es-
tublished.
The railway counsel tried hard t»
confine it to merely the question of
discrimination, the position which
wns tnken hy M. K. Cowun, K.O.,
counsel for Alberta und Saskatchewan, nnd objected to it going further
and this Mr. Whltu und Mr. Bickno
strenuously opposed nnd finally won
a signal victory which in the end
may mean much to the western shipper und consumer.
The date for the next sitting, whon
the railways will assume the onus of
justification, wus not tixed, but lt
wus made very clear that there must
be no delay and the railways are to
give notice   liy   May iii when they   can
proceed with the case.
"This is the most serious und Important case the board has ever considered," said Mr. Scott, "and we
want to give the railways time
enough, but we hnve started this enquiry nnd we want to sUy with the
job. We will give you until tbe next
Sitting of the board, May 81, to pre-
pure for the case and notify us wheu
you nre ready to proceed."
QUBBR DISCRBPANCIBS
An interesting development of the
inquiry was the fact thut the C.P.R.
presented to Mr. Whitlu tables alleging to be the revenue and operating
expenses <>f recent years which were
found to be entirely different from
I tables presented when the Vancouver
rate case was before the hoard. The
new statements, Mr. whitlu showed.
Increased the total operating charges
on all the various di visions, in one
case, the Winnipeg division, by an
amount no loss tban $sr,n,0OQ. The
now tables also increased the expense
per mile by $428 on one section. Mr
Whitlu pointed out that it wus very
strange that two such strikingly different statements should be presented
Mr. Chrysler, counsel for the railway
said they would explain the differences In due time, but vouchsafed no
Information to the board today, Iu
addition to enormously increasing
the operating figures the new tables
lecreosed the earnings by, in oiib
case, $436 per mile.
A very quiet wedding took place on
Tuesday night nt tho residence of Mr

In order to form any idea of the
men und women uf the future it is
necensary to consider the men aud
women of the past, and those of the
present, Whnt has the past dune for
us? What are we doing lor tbe
future?
Development is gradual, one thing
has led on to another until today wo
tlml ourselves surrounded by many
luxuries and comforts never dreamed
of by our ancestors; and if luxuries
increase as rapidly in the future as
they have in the past fifty years, !
know not what tho coming genera
tions will have.
Conditions have changod very much
durlug the last century. The spirit
of change and advancement is abroad
overy where. Travelling has become
so luxurious and easy that pQOplC
from all parts of the world are dallj
brought Into contact with one
* I another, New territory bus been
| (opened   up   and   the   people   Of   all   Hfl
I tUmahties flock  their.   This  is cren
ting   a   very   cosmopolitan spirit        In
t this way  the advanced Ideas of   mo
i people become tlu* property   ol nil
Kspeiiilly  hns the position assigned
I to women    changed.       In    tho   pasl
I they  had to content  themselves with
(their homes    and  families,  and  poor
instead     was     the     one    who   bad
neither, for thero was very little [oi
'her In the outside world      Now  took
' nt   them       Where   may   they   not   go?
What    may    they    not     do?   Kearlj
every field is open to them. Nothing
le too ambitious for then, to attempt
Where    then     ambitions   will  lead
I them    In    the    future    It  is hard u
say        AR   that   wc   as   men   and   WO-
• men have gained we pass on to fu
ture eeneratu-ns. and it would be
Interesting to know how they appreciate the burdens passed on to them.
■ Especially the women lor their bur
dens are great now-, and if the women
of the future advance as rapidly as
this generation has done their responsibilities will be overpowering.
Physical strength and not ability
may prove to be the test.
The position Of men has not
changed SO much, they have had to
step aside a little and allow wom**n
to come up beside them; their dignity was wounded & little at first
but that feeling has nearly all pass
ed away, and now they stand side
by side and women occupy a position
they have never reached before. It
hardly seems as if this can be the
proper st.-ite of affairs, for women
have so many responsibilities that
men can never have, and can they,
'standing side by side with men, doing a man's work and a woman's
too, pass on the good principle that
bave heen handed down to them.
Have they in trying to do too much
brightened them, or have they tarnished them in the use and sent on
dull, miserable unlovely things, thnt
to all generations will rise up
against them. Responsibilities are
easily accepted, hut let us be sure
before we accept them that we can
curry out what tbey mean. If our
future generations are to be better
than we are then we must make tbem
so, for they will be pretty much
what we make them, and so as our
opportunities for great things are
great, much ought to be expected of
us. Preparing our children for the
future should be our sacred duty. It
may not seem great, but it is great.
Our influence on tbem ia never ending
all through the ages it goes—endless
as time itself. We are tbe makers
of the future.
Many of us do not realise this. Our
children's welfare must he vital tr
us. There are so many who never
try to work out the problem of th
future welfare of their children. They
are allowed out at all hours of the
night and often it is the parent(
themselves who want amusement, and
go they will, even though the child's
sleep is broken and it is good for
nothing the next * day. Sleep in
child life is so important that they
must have it in order to have proper
development, and if tbey don't get a
proper amount they degenerate and
who suffers? The children themselves and all tbeir descendents. It
is the same with other things, the
children are literally driven to the
streets because there is nothing for
them at home,
Ther,. must be no noise, no dirt, no
amusement of any kind for fear of
upsetting something. They grow up
some way. but nothing can be ex
pected of them. They In turn marry
nml as they have been brought up so
thev bring up their children and no
advancement is made, ami their
children ami children's children are
i no farther ahead
As    I    wild    before the care of our
children should be vital to us.     Tbe
bringing up of chlldeen seemH to be
the greatest    work thnt most of uh
i have to do,  ho let   us do  it   well.  Let
I no policeman have to Interfere lu tbe
i management of our children.    Begin
j early    enough    and  make  your home
I their    home,    and    they  uh the next
generation will have the right [doan
I of home life, and call pans them on
i Portiinntoly we have a larg"    '  '
number
I of parents   whom*   children's welfare
is   tin*   uppermost thought,    Thnn
in taught and practised in the home
and all matters pertaining to health
are mrnfnlly considered. Children
of such parents grow up to be a
credit to them nnd to the country to
which they belong and able to take
their pin COS in this busy world. IM
it not be our fault if we do not send
down through our children good
health and good principles.
One   thing  especially,   I   think   will
do    future   generations   much   barm
and  that  is the  large fortunes  tbat |
are made so rapidly.       People  who
have   never   had    money ami do not |
understand   the use of it,    suddenly j
find   themselves  millionaires.        Tbey
lose  their heads of course,  and  boys
ind   girls   are   given   every thing   that
Monoy can buy.     They have so many
imusomeuts      that      education      is  a
secondary    consideration,    ami    they
grow up idle,  good fOI   nothing, child   ;
reu.     They   think  the  world  is theirs j
to command,      The   boys    in   such
families   frequently   go from   bad to
worse    and end   up   well,    l   don'l
Know     where.       The    girls expect   to
marry,   but   what    man    can     many
them  except  ho has  mlllious at  bis
Ins command,  tor everything  must be
ready     lot     a   palatial   house,   liorsos
and     carnages,   uut OB,    jewels,   etc
but    all    oiu     young    men    an*   not
millionaires      and      tl      one      should j
happen to many ii girl with such;
ideas what is there In lite foi oithei
of them but disappointment und dis j
cord and posslblj divorce There
is a large number ol poople in this
class and out future men and women '
will sutler in consequence, for after ail
ease      and      comfort      never      begets
happiness        in n struggle   for   ad '
vancement    and    tllfl    overcoming   of
difficulties   there   is   real   pleasure   and <
something to look forward to, and ml
such au atmosphere we will have'
better boys and girls and later men j
and women. Ours is an age ot dis-j
covery and invention. Dozens of
useful things have been given to us,
uui dozens more t.i give excitement
to lift*. If the incoming generations
.ire not amused, it will not be for
want  of effort  to  make  them  laugh.
New things have come in to save,
labor. The town pumps is a thing i
of the past, and we, with our convenient water systems, feel live, apol-
igizing for- it; hut the good office of
the pump handle In developing muscle must not be forgotten. Tbe
spinning wheel has disappeared, the
scythe and the sickle—all are gone;
and even our poor homely old brown
books as if it might he put aside too.
These are all replaced by things that.
require much less labor, hut. will tbe |
ease and the comfort of the new be
better for us than the labor of the
old? Is it ease and comfort we need
to make men and women of us9 1
think not. Work is THK thing that
keeps us sane. What do our ease
loving people amount to? They make
good society men and women—but
what else? Home one else will have
to answer the question.
We think we have great luxuries
and comforts, but will they not be so
far surpassed In the future that they
will be looked upon in much the same
way as we look on the old pump and
and tallow candle. Yes, advancement must go on in every line.
Nothing can stop it.
The future men and momen should
be much more healthy than we arc,
for look what has been found out for
them- the germ theory alone has
revolutionized medicine in our own
time, and with all the brain power
aud money being expended on trying
to get at tbe cause and prevention of
disease, one wonders what marvels,
the future generation will see.
Women will get all they want lu
the way of public life, for one by one
the barriers are being broken down
which kept them out. Tbey will
have the franchise and our own brave
ones may even march oil to the warn
with their brothers. There will be
very little home life, for our women
will be stumping the country tor an
alection, nnd men will have to live
it the clubs ami such places.
There will be very few children tor
i women with a policeman's baton
to look after tbem. The consequence
will he a great decrease in the population, that is in the kind of population that builds and keeps up a
nation, for all the clever ones will he
engaged in outside work the same ub
their husbands, and only the dull und
stupid, and lasy ones who can't Und
employment outside will be at home
and have children and take care of
them  the best  way  they  know  how.
1 always live in hopes though for
in the present generation there are so
many sane and sensible women who
tnke no part in the mad rush for
more power. They are satisfied to
live In tbeir own homes nud take care
of tbeir children and do a great deal
of outside work ns well, without sacrificing anyone, nml let us hope thnt
the majority of the women of thr
future even If they get the franchise
and can If they wish enter all fields
of labor, still always remember that
they are doing a work which men can
never do, and their [tower for good
in the home uud in the world is unlimited, and why pile burdens on
themselves when they have so many
already, unless they want to go buck
to primitive times when the women
did all the work and Ihe men sat and
looked on.
In conclusion let me say that the
men nnd women of the future should
Interest us Inr loss than those of the I
present, for we are now to do our
part and take our share fn the world I
work of which there is so mtirh to he
done tf we only look for it.

About forty miles from Flagstaff,
Aria., In tho midst of II great plain,
there is a saucer shaped hollow about
three quarters of a mile across nod
COO feet deep. Tho rim of this strange
craler rise* between 1fiO and *JUO foot
above the surrounding plain, llocky
fragments are scattered for several
miles around Hie crater. Among these
rocks many fragments ot meteoric
Iron, some containing minute black
diamonds, have boon found. Tbe Inner
walls show that tho crust of Ihe earth
was broken when the crater was formed, yet no volcanic rocks exist there.
Geologists have offered several theories lo account for this singular phenomenon. (Uui Is that an immense
meteorite made the hole and that tbe

Hear Editor:—What do you Hay—
"my idea of Home" in the space
you indicate" A volume, and a large
one, would he roqulretl to discuss the
mere outlines of this subject. Mul you
hnve given me some time to boil down
my crude and imperfect, ideas on this
theme. A great writer, you know,
said on one occasion, "This is u very
long letter, hut positively 1 bad not
time to make it shorter."
*'An Ideal Home," you say. Well,
lt must be where love abides, rock-
rooted in confidence.
It must be where physical comforts
are uot wanting, but where luxury
and pretense have not usurped the
places of peace and repose. There
may Im* more joy in the hovel than in
the palace; but you ure asking for the
"idenl" home, and such fi home requires all the comforts.
There  must  be   music,   because   mu
sic ia the language of the
ordinary language fails.
There must be religion. 1 do not J
speak of creeds or doctrines or Bibles I
or prayer book. There must be ai
deep, reverential, God-fearing and
God-trusting religion, which exemplifies the doctrine taught in the "Sermon on the Mount." and the golden
rule,
There should tie calm, low voices
and quiet manners. There should he j

The well-bred guest should be there
and the way to the door should not ,

"always with you."
With  these   crude   suggestions ac- j
cepted and applied, I should say with
one   whose    literary shoes I am not
worthy to unloose:
"Home,    it   is   where   the   day-star
springs,
And where the evening sun reposes;
Where'er the eagle spreads  his wings
Kroni   northern   snows   to   southern

SALVATION    ARMY
All round the world the Ofllcers,
Soldiers and Friends of the Salvation
Army will, during the week of Mny
12th to 18th, be practising sonic form
f Self Denial In order to save a
little money to help forward the War
All through the year that has past
by its ten thousand agencies, the
Army lias been busy In different ton™
of sell sacrificing toll bringing happiness and salvation to the hearts
and lives and homes or multitudes of
people;
And all the year the Army haa
gone op, opening its arniN wider and
wider, entering now nations, attach'
Ing new neighborhoods, learning new
languages, enlisting new helpers. Inventing new plans, and so enlarging
the sphere of its operations and Ita
power to bless the world.
Dllt this combined and increased
activity require* money. A Utile
war can be carried on at a cost-fl
big one demands a proportionate
amount.
The Army people prove their willing
ness to help themselves,   ln addition
to their contributions for the support of their Ofllcers, and the rent of
their own Citadels and Halls, they j
will, during the Self-Dental Week,!
themselves in various forms in order
to tiHHist in the general support and'
extension ot the work.
Will the readers of this paper (join'
them? Whether agreeing with every;
method and principle of the Army or
not, they will know the Army are'
lighting against Bin, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, nursing the
sick, reclaiming the fallen, nnd seek-
Ing the glory of God through Jesus
Christ, and thnt the results prove, j
beyond question, that (lod Is with I
them.
The resident otllcer-t'nptaln Stride,
together with the locnl co-workers'
Is extremely anxious thnt the con
trlhution toward the Home and I
Foreign Missionary and Social Funds]
shall be a liberal one, nnd donations ]
may be handled to either the Ofllcers or members of the Army. '

It was a Battcrsea boy who waxed
indignant to the Daily Sketch at the
notion of having no Master holidays
because ot the London County Council's resolve to distribute free meals
to hungry youngsters.

Average price received for eggs 33
cents per dozen. Average mean tem-
porature 47.08. Rain fell on all
days; frost waB present on five mornings, seven days were without sunshine. The weather during the
month was the best experienced since
the contest started. Brilliant sun-
phine was reported on every day, ex-
repting the few dull days already
enumerated.
Blasting is still carried on, and is
sufficiently henvy to interfere very
iieriously with hatching operations of
nearby residents. Heveral have reported total losses ot several sittings
so far, owing to the explosions.
The month just passed, togethor
with next month, are the periods
generally recognized as those in
which the heaviest egg production
occurs. This fact, together with the
favornble climatic conditions which
prevailed, accounts for the very
creditable records made during the
month. In class one, pen 19 claims
the distinction of being the flrst pen
in the contest to touch or pass the
century mark. On one occasion 6
eggs were laid in one day, and on 6
days, 5 eggs were laid daily, and on
six days 4 eggs were produced during each twenty-four hours.
. Other pens deserving especial mention nre pens 4 (961, 22 (95), 12 (951,
14 (94), 7 (921, 9 (90), 5 (89) 11 (89),
18 (86), 17 (83), 16 (82), 23 (81).
The following pens produced 6 eggs
In one day—16 (twice), 17, 1, 7, 9,
4 (once each).
In this month's standing Pen 19
goes up three places, pen 5 displaces
pen 10 for fifth position. Pen 12
moves up two notches, pen 18 ousts
pen 6, and pen 1 drops Ave places.
Pen 8 deserves special mention for
producing 75 eggs with only pullets
throughout the month.
The first, case of broodiness among
class one occurred during the month,
Pen 10 furnishing a pullet.
In class two, the pens producing
the largest number of eggs were Pen
32 (102), 29 (90), 38 (87), 39 (87) and
28 (77). Pen 40 managed to hold
sixth place, but by the appearance of
the pullets, their performance during
the first three or four months seems
to have completely exhausted their
laying powers. The listless manner
in which they move about indicates
lack of constitution und staying
power.
The following pens laid 6 eggs in
one day—29, 32, 37, and .18. Broodiness was responsible for the following birds rcmovnl from the pen during the month: Pens 25 (3 birds), 29
(5), 30 (3), 31 (2), 35 (1), 3y (1) 39
(4).
All the runs wero swept and litter
cleaned out during the month. Kacli
run was aUo partly dug up. Oreen
food In the shape of clover, chick-
weed, nnd dandelion Is supplied regularly, nnd much relished hy all tho
birds. The fowls In class one consumes more green food than the fowls
In the heavy class.

Lest We Forget.
All Atlantic liners will hereafter
curry boats sufficient to take cure of
all on board in case of danger. So
fur as ls known there has been no oc-
cassion in the lifetime of this
generation when one of these ships
hud to use all of her boats for this
purpose. By the law of averages
that full compliment of boats will
uot be needed again for a lifetime.
But they will be on band and will be
ready for use until the Titanic accident is forgotten, and passengers
will havo ceased to think about
this kind of accident. Once in a
long lifetime an ocean traveller may
need u lifeboat. Every time he
crosses be needs, or thinks he needs,
curtain luxuries and much speed. As
before, the competition fur business
will not be among the safest ships,
hut between the largest, the most
comfortable, and swiftest. We need
not expect that the building of large
ships will cease. We need nut ex
pect that the slower ship will become
the most popular. Hut for a time
there will be new precautions covering peculiar dangers now hn night to
light. Travelling hy hout is as safe
as travelling by train. The authorities who ure investigating lu a
rather sensational way must have
obsorved that more tban 10,000 persons are killed every year In railway
accidents in the United States alone.
In the immediate presence of tbe
Titanic disaster the loss of life seems
so great that it is likely to destroy
lor a time the public sense of proportion.
Priests Ministered To The
Drowning
Winnowed from among many of tho
pathetic stories of tbe Titanic catastrophe yesterday was a tale of two
clergymen who went down with the
Titanic while ministering to tbe welfare of the souls of the stricken
passengers grouped on their knees
about tbem. Ono of the clergymen
was the Rev. Thomas R. I). Ryles of
Westminster parish, London, wbo was

age Sunday morning and, strangly
perhaps, each in his sermon bad
spoken of the necessity for mun to be
possessed of the lifeboat of religious
consolation in time of spiritual shipwreck. The story of tbe deaths of
the priests wns related yesterday by
three women survivors of the Titanic
Ellen Mocklnre, Bertha Moran and
Miss McCoy.
When the liner struck, they said,
Father Byles came down in the steerage passageway with bund uplifted,
commanding the people to be culm
and giving them absolution and bis
blessing.
"He led us to where the boats were
being lowered," said Miss Mocklare,
"meanwhile saying prayers, and helped women and children into them.
He whispered words of comfort and
encouragement to all. The passen
gers were deeply Impressed hy his
self control. Twice be refused to enter tbe boat, and save himself.
"After the hoat had left the ship's
side," continued Miss Mocklare, "I
could hear distinctly the voices of llle
priests and the responses of the
people to their prayers. Then they
grew fainter and fainter and finally
1 could only hear tbe strains ol
"Nearer, My God to Thee."
The person who stands on the
street corner looking around for
something to gossip about or to tind
fault with, can always llml what he
is looking (or, but what a life he
lives. His soul shrivels and withers
until it is shown in his manners aud
looks. For such n person life hits lost
its savor. It becomes sour, misanthropic, whining. Ile passes from
bad to worse and sees no good lu
