Ancient Order of Foresters
A conclusion  to the Article   which appeared in our
Last Week's Issue
"At    wlmt timo Forestry came in-,corpB(i    to bo buried at Winchester),
to existence no ono eau tell. Like
many other Institutions its beginning in lost in ilie midst of time.
The earliest reliable glimpse we net,
ot it is in the yenr 1791), in a list of i
member., imide in Court No. 1 of the
Ancient Royal Order ot Foresters inj
the l'lirish of Leeds, which lint ie
still in tho \n■t.-THMiun of the Supreme Secretary of the Order. As to
whether "No. l." commenced it's
career in that year, at present, it ia
Impossible to tell; but from that
date onward until "No, l" went out
of existence, In 1868, the records of
that Court ure in existence, As to
the darkness which shrouds the doings of the 18th Century Foresteis,
the caueo iH well understood. The
Governments hud no confidence in
men who mot in secret, us did the
early Foresters, Druids aud Odd Fellows, nnd they laid at time-i, heavy
bands upon them. BookB were not
kept, particularly in the yenrs immediately following the great French
Revolution, and a list of members
was not thrown open tor the world
to gaze upon.
Of the existence of Foresters prior
to 1790, we have at loist tradition,
and thia tradition weakens the popular notion tlmt Forestry is a special
product of the land of Robin Hood
and Little John. Hut more stable'
than brnrtition is the unmistakable
fact that women Hhnrcil with men the
honor of establishing iriendly societies ln the 18th Century; and that
the female Forester of today fs only
a revival of the system of self-help
that commenced or at all events existed, in the new-forest over a hundred years ago.
"OrderB of Foresters" wrote Mr.
A. J. Dyet, D.S. Southampton, "can
be traced from almo.t time immemorial within Hampshire precincts,
and especially In and around the
new forest. • * * Many of them had
been designed to commemorate the
events of past history, for branches
of Foresters were named after Sir
Waltee Tyrrel, King Rufts, Bill Pur-
kls    (who   carried     the     monar.h's
j and other celebrities. Our grnndfa-
i there told us of how their grabdfa-
thers remembered the events of the
olden time, when candidates for initiation were ushered into tlic place
of meeting by brithern dressed tn
the part, of woodmen, and carrying
boughs of trees, to depict as best
they could the surroundings of a forest—how on meeting nights a snnd
glass was placed on the tn;.le to indicate the passing hour and everybody was expected within a lixed
limit of time to drink his prescribed
portion of liquor, or be subject to
penalties; and then the nre .test
crime of which a man could bo guilty was to fall out of the procts-uoa
on its way to church on feast-dni,
or tail to do justice to thi. viands,
provided for him at the tnbltj of
mine host."
Forestry was first Introduced in
the United States of America iu the
year 1832 by the opening in Philadelphia of Court Good Speed No.
201, of the Ancient order of Itoyal
Foresters. In Canada, Forestry
made its appearance in the latter
part of 1843 by the opening of Court
Maple No 1654, at the bouse of Mr.
Issac Moffat's London Tavern, Lombard Street, Montreal.
Having taken rank as one of the
oldest, largest and foremost friendly
societies in the world, ?he Canadians
exult in their affiliation with the
Grand Old Order in the dear Motherland on whose Courts "the Sun never sets" so rich in its historical
traditious, so wealthy in its glorious memory. Among its honorary
members the Order hnB the honor of
having H.R.H. Princess Louise (Duch
ess of Argyle) a=i vice-patroness ol
Court 8160, Countess of Aberdaen,
of Aberdeen, Counters of Glt-scow,
Countess of Klmberley, Baronjss Ra-
versham, Lady Primrose, Lady Peily,
etc., 150 peers, 800 Sons of Peers,
21 Bishops, 5 Deans, 136 Ba-onet-j,
6 Judges, 111 Knights, over 150 mem

Ore Shipments
The ore shipments Irom mines In
Bast Kooteii'iy lor the past year
were as loliows:—
Sullivan   31.895 Tons
8t Eugene   1,042     "
Society Girl        94     "
Monarch   1,144     "
Total        34,202 Tons
During the pr-st yor the Sullivan
has been a heavy shipper and it is
expected that there will be a large
Increase ln 1913.
It is rumored that several cars ol
ore will be shipped Irom the "Stjm-
wlnder" mine at Klmbeeley as soon
as weather and other conditions permit. 	
Prospecting of the placer ground ol
the Big Bteam-shovel Co., nt Perry

holes have been sunk to bedrock
with most satisfactory results.
Everything points toward the lact
that the Society Olrl mine nt Moyle
will be a large shipper in 1913.
There were 9,151 tons ol ore milled
at the Monnrch mine In 1912 which
produced 1,144 tons ol concentrates.

Lord Milner's Ideal
of Empire
Interesting Speech delivered at Author's
Club, London, England
Viscount Milner wus a guest cl
honor recently at the regular "Mnn.
day Dinner" ol the Author's Club.
S, [Andrew mm mm,m mmm mm mm
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle presided,
the topic for the evening being
"Journalism and t'.ie Empire." In
point oi numbers the gathering was
the largest in the history of thc
club, and it was generally declared
that thc occasion was the most successful of this series of "Monday
Dinners," which have become one of
the most popular features ot the
Viscount Milner, who received a
great ovation on rising, said: "Allow m© to thank you for the extraordinary cordial reception which you
have given to this tnnst, and you especially, Mr. Chairman, lor ths very
kind terms In which you have proposed it. If I had no ether reward
for coming here tonight, I am s-ire
i should have neen sufficiently rewarded by listening to the sreech
which hns jimt been delivered, and,
ot course, showing great literary
beauty in its form. (Hear hear.)
I don't know that I subscribe in all
reaiects to the views expressed by
the chairman, but I do think t'u t on
broad lines he has given a wonderfully true—and excepting his somewhat too flattering references to myself (No)—wonderfully appreciative
summary of recent history in South
Atrica. Well, gentlemen, it is a
great honor to be invited to initiate
a discussion ot the Author's Club
At the same time, I must admit to
you that the choice o( a topic has
caused me no little perplexity, lt
has been suggested to me. quite prl
vately end unofficially, that an appropriate subject (or one who, like
myself, has at one time been a writer for the press, and at another
time, and (or a much lenger period
anlmperlnl official, would be "Journalism and the Empire." I do not
know that there is any coherent series of ideas which I feel capab'e ol
arranging under that heading. I
will nBk you to give me a little
more latitude than that theme, as
I understand it, would afford. But
I take the hint to this extent, that
I will confine my remarks to one as.
pect of the great subject ol Imperial union, an aspect often neglected,
hut which should, I think, appeal
especially to men ot letters, and
therelore, as tho greater Includes the
lees, to all journalists who take a
high view, and It is the only right
view, of their profession.
Let me define what I mean by Imperial union. I mean something
which at present doeB not exist, or
exists only in an embryonic or rudl-1
mentsry lorn*. I mean a real Em-,
pire State, with Its necessary concomitant, nn Empire cltl-enship. My
ideal is a common citizenship which
IB something different Irom, some-
thlm' more than, a sense ot blood relationship nnd n community of language and sentiment, such as may ex
ist, and happily docs often exist, between people belonging to different
'amies politic, as, lor Instance, the
Austrian Germans and the Germans
ol the German Empire or the British p oplo and the people of the
United States.
When tho advocates ot a unltsd
empire sum up its advantages, they
dwell mainly on two points. The
first is thc greater strength nnd security which would rrsult 11 all the
military nnd nnvnl InrceB ol tho Em-
nlro, present and Iuture, were controlled by a single authority. The
second is tho economic argument lor
union, well exprrsscd by an American Irlenil ol mine, who contemplating r.s a Iriendly outsider the varied
nnd mutually complementary resources ol different ports ot the Empire,
summed it up as 'a tlrst-rnte business proposition.' And certainly I
should he the last man to question
tho Immense Importance of either of
those considerations, But that Is
not the whole story. Even In an ern
ol   uni'.'crsii   paice, evon II not only
wars but tariffs were to be absolute
ly abandoned, I should still remain
an Imperialist. I should still want
my country to be tlio greatest in thc
world, by which I do not mean the
biggest, lt le not mere size that I
am thinking of, though site has its
value. No, but the gieitest, let me
say, in the amplitude und variety ol
its resources, and In that which ma
terlul ri-Bourcr'B are only the meanB
to—In Its civilization, Its achievements, the spirit and character ot
it's people.
"But what is my country? An
eaBy question, you might think to
answer. And so it is tor most oi
tho members ol the human race
But it is not altogether so easy lor
any subject of his Majesty King
George V, . Ma; I be allowed to
say bow I personally should he dls
posed to answer? The line saying,
"The Empire Is my country" Ib not
a phrase ot my coining, though it
precisely expresses what I feel. It ls
the phrase ot a Oanadlau Imperialist
who is not the less loyal or devoted
Canadian on that account. I can
see, as Mr. Balfour well said the
other night, no. antagonism whatever
between two patriot is ub. The Germans have a good expression to
meet a somewhat. Bimiliar situation.
They talk of "the narrower" and
"the wider Fatherland," meaning by
the former Prussia, or Saiony, or
Ilnvnrin, or whatever it may be, and
by the latter the whole Get.uan Empire. That seems to me, "mutatis
mutandis," to he applicable to our
own case. My hope ls that a day
may come when the words -the Empire is my country' will not be a
hard saying to any civilized man—I
don't care what the color ol his s'tln
in any part ot It; when over and
above his local and racial patriotism
he will recognl-e that his highest allegiance is to the Empire as a whole.
To that end It is necessary, at least
in my view, that the Empire should
be a real etate, and not merely a
number ol saperate, more or lesB
closely associated communities under
a common sovereign. Oviously we
ore still very far trom Buch a condition of things, though, aa I have
said, I believe the tendency is towards It not away Irom It. But my
point Is this, that its attainment is
desirable, more than that, it is the
highest ot all purely political objects that we can pursue, not only
(or the sake ol greater strength and
security or ol ampler and better as-
snred economic development, but lor
higher reason still—lor the sake o(
wbat I can only call thc greiter epir
itual content o( the wider patriotism
"Without being too metaphysical, 1
suppose thnt a (eeling o( pride In
one's country, a sense o( the privilege ot belonging to a land ot "just
and old renown,' with a great history and great traditions, nnd the
resulting desire and impulse to preserve nnd haply enhnnce that heritag
—these things surely are ol ths essence ol patriotism. And among the
nobler motives ot human action it ts
one ot the most potent, and despite
its occasional excesses, of the mist
beneficent. But patriotism is a rope
ol many strands, nnd the various
elements which make it up appeal In
very different proportions to different minds. With one man lt is the
heroism ol our warriors and explorers, with another the genius ol our
great writers, with another the beau
ty ot the Innd itself enhanced hy the
art nnd enro of many generations,
with yet another Its eontrlhitlnn to
human progress, In raising the standard nl justice nnd humanity, and-in
Betting an example ol orderly (ree-
ilom and ctmitlt itlonil government
which does most ti nourish his pride
In nn attachment to his country.
"How loeB nil this lo ,k Irom the
other side? Can the idea ol Imperial patriotism, the sense ot membership of tho Empire, hnve the same
depth nl meaning, the same source ot
Inspiration to the Canadian nr Aus
tralian, us to the EnglMimnu, Irishman, or Scotsman? Why should It
not? The men who made the Bm-
plre wore their ancestors, as much us
yours or mine. The call to main
tain and prove it, the whole ol It,
not only one's particular corner, Is
as loud to them as it is to you and
me. Indeed it would not surprize
me il in the near iuture that sentiment were to become a more poteut
force in the Oversea Dominions than
it is hero. And it thnl does come
about, it will not be solely, or
mainly from a sense ol material advantages of thc Imperial connection.
There is auotlicr spirit at work
which counts for more, lt ls his feel
ing ol pride in his birthright, in his
membership of a great h storlc and
world-wide State, so various in the
character of its diftierent parts, so
rich In opportunities, with so imposing a record iu the past, and such
illimitable possibilities in, the Iuture
And that feeling will take the form
,.i a cluhu, a clului ti.u justice o!
which is indisputable, not only (or
thc entire control ol his local affairs
—he has got that already—but (or a
voice in the control in Imperial affairs. Of course such nsplrations, II
they nre to be realized, Involve a
complete overhauling ol our present
chaotic system, nnd the creation o(
an imperial constitution. But that
is just what thc Imperialism o! the
Dominions, il It follows the line
which I have Just indicated, is going
to bring it about.
"Only oue more remark ln conclusion. I do not admit that Imperial
patriotism of a kind may not be developed among the races that are
not Iiritish origin. Perhaps it will
never be ol the (ervid type, but to
say that Is not to say, that lt muat
be bused on purely material considerations. Gt\en complete eiuallty o'
status with their British fellow-
countryman, thay may not be Insensible ol the dignity ol their position
us citizens ol the Empire, or unwilling to share ln its burdens and its
glories. 1 can imagine thn French
Canadians, tor instance, under certain conditions, becoming ln this
sense quite sound Imperialists, as
some nf them are already. Indeed,
I go further. It would be a mistake
to undervalue the attachment to thc
Empire which undoubtedly exists
even among the siibjlct races o( India and Africa, however crude and
childlike mny be, must he I in the majority ol the people, their conception of whnt the Empire ls. I have
certainly had occasion to realise the
strength of thnt sentiment in some
of the African tribes, and I be'.leve
that it exists, though here I do not
apeak, from personal experience, iu
the mass ot the people ol India. No
doubt among a port'on ot the edu-
catedclasscs of that country there ls
not only n. feeling ol attachment to
the Empire, but, on the contrary, indifference, estmnr;e'rent, even bitter
hostility. But even It these feelings
were more widespread umong them
than, as lur as I can judge, they actually are, I should not despair ol
the future ot Imperial patriotism ln
India. Changes whlcb are bound
gradually to come about In tee government of that country, giving n
wider scope to native ability and
ambition, coupled with what I (or
ine hope lor, though I know how
difficult it Is lo accomplish, I mean
complete removal ol the disabilities nnd indignities to which even
the in,ist highly civilized Indians are
at present liable In some ol the
white communities of th" Empire
would, I am convince!, exercise a
momentiiB Influence on Indian sentiment. But Ini i- 1 touch ,,n tiie
trinne ol a very thorny problem, and
I have already detained you too
long, and raised more thun enough
points tor a single evening. I hove
tho Ideas which I Imve set out hetore
you, though they might havo been
less nebulously expressed, find a
place In your thoughts and in your
sympathies,  (prnlonied appl'ica.)

Uow much dirt or personality can be

the parties who have their names

Avenging Her Father
Frauleln lllrtl, iho daughter of u

put on trial for ansaulting her father's
superior officer, Lleuteuant Field Marshal vou Horoevlc, tho commander- of
an army corps. The affair hus

Into sharp relief some of tho evils
of ihe AuH'iinu military regulations
undor which Junior officers are forbidden lo many unless tlio bride can deposit lhe prescribed dowry, which
varies from $10,00(1 for a lieutenant's
wife to f37B0 for that of a major.
Twenly years ago Lieutenant Hlrll
fell In love with u penniless girl, and.
apparently, tn llie hope that the regulation might some day be relaxed, the
pair jollied liieir lives without any religious ceremony.     Tho union was a
happy one. three children were horn,
and when lllrtl recently iitluincd the
rank of u cujonel, when no dowry hut
only a formal permission to marry is
necessary, lie applied for   leave   to
marry his faithful companion, os this j
would, under Austrian law also mako I
his children legitimate.      The ileld-
marshal however, refused this permls-1
sion, told Colonel Hlrll that he had j
best send In his papers and declined ;
to have any social relations with him.
Thla Interview took place Just liefore a dinner of the garrison ut Mun-
lines, and Colonel lllrtl, instead ot attending, went, hniiio and told his fam-j

More About
The Loading Platform
The presont geaeratlon ot Western farmer:; will r.ever know iha
difficulties and vexations experienced hy t'aeb predecessors In to*
earlier years when no one couU get a carload of graiu shipped In
hulk except hy loading It through on elevator The system forced
the majority of farmers to sell t'aclr grain lo tho elevator owner..
at arbitrary prices, nnd oft times lo submit to heavy dookage nnl
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now, however,
the distribution of ears as fixed by the Grain Act. and tho uso nf Ihe
loading platform, provide facilities which enable the farmer tn scenra
satisfactory treatment ln tho di.posal of his praln, and Ilio Iilt-iies:
market prices at time of Bale. Svcry farmer therefore, should mora
and more ondc.avor lo use tho loading platlorm Ir shipping his grain
to the terminal elevators. It Is the safeguard o,' lhe farmers' freedom In disponing of I1I3 grain to Ihe best ndvautage for himself. II
farmers refrain from using tho loading platform freely, It might re-
suit ln Its holag dona .-.way wltll, because railway companies anil
elevator owners are strongly opposed to it. II. ii easy to understand
why elevator peopla desire tho loading platform abolished. The ral'-
way people ou their part say it delays the loading of cars n'ul he'p. tn
ensure car shortage. This wo know U be '.-.011861180. because fr?-
qnently after cars are loaded, whether with grain, eoal, lumber, or
other merchandise, they are Bldrlracked Tor days nnd even we-V.
Instead of bolng promptly moved forward to Destination, It Is englr.s
shortage and shortage ot competent train men that mostly cau*?i
grain hlockales on railways and not lack of cars, f^et every faf*ffie:
therefore, do all he can to use tho loading platform and become an In-
dependent shipper. In suhseyi-nt advertisements wo will sta*,. In
detail the savings and other advantages ot direct *oadlni. Into can
compared with loading through elevators.
Wc handle the fanners grain strictly on commission, make ll-isn!

but she somewhat rudely refused; At

who had given vent to a particularly

To Fit the Crime
| Kor a scolding wife the branks and
i ducking-stool were formerly regard d
! as Infallible correctives. Not more
so, however, thnn the method employed by a Saii/.uurg burgomaster, who
sentenced p woman, convicted of virulently abuaing her husband, to stand
ih a public place, nnd for six hours
every day for a week direct a torrent
of violent objurgation against a straw
effigy fashioned to represent her
spouse. Not a minute's respite was
her tongue allowed, the briefest silence
being sharply punished by a stinging
cut from a whip wielded by an official
who stood at hand to sec lhat the sentence was duly carried out.
A Russian smuggler wae shot recently by Cossacks just ns he waa crossing the Austrian boundury, nol far
from CzcruowltK. Tho body fell

ready wit. In the very early days
of his career he was ordered out to
Bombay as A.D.C. Shortly after his
arrival he had to make a visit to Government Houso, whero a new and very
supercilious military secretary was installed.
Tho room was crowded with people
wheu the young subaltern entered
and proceeded to explain his business.
The military secretary who. in the
conscious pride of his new position,
had a hearty contempt for subalterns
of all degrees, with a glassy stare
llirougli his monocle offered him two
fingers to shake.
The A.D.C. quite unabashed, looked at him for a second or two, e.ntl
then said genially: Hang it all, major,

very athletic, he easily swung himself
from the platform Into the car. but ho
did not find It an easy matter to stay

him by *.\*n hhoulders, propelled hlin
towards thc side door, and practically
ejected him to the platform below.

Hitchcock indignantly.

lound useful oy a number of local
motorists and saves many hours ol
patient waiting. All that Is needed
to the outat is a three-jointed Ashing pole with a wire attached to
hook over a telephone, this with a
regulnr telephone box, a spike and
a wire for grounding, give Immediate
connections to points along where
telephone wires ars strung, thus enabling the motorist who Is out ot
•nsollno or has a breakdown to secure what assistance he- might need.

Turning Over  New Leaf
and Keeping it Turned
The Neal Treatment will Enable Drinkers to Stick
to New Year's Resolutions by Destroying All
Craving for Drink—Three-Day Miracles
at the Cranbrook Institute
Today thousands ol peoplo ure
turning ovor a now leaf und writing
"dry" on tliolr tlrst pugo of the new
To make a resolution is oue tiling
but to keop It ia quite anothor—particularly if tho one resolving is a
heavy drinker.
Many nu excessive drinker who Is
bartering business, health nnd happi-
noHB for ovorlniliilgeno) In ilriuk will
turn Irom liquor on this New Year's
day only to Und himself drawn hack
to old drinking ways. Such a man
does not drink because ho "wants to
but tor the simple reason thut Ills
will to uuit Is overpowered liy Irre
iiistinle craving for liquor.
There is a way to turn over a uew
lent and keop lt turned. The Neal
Treatment (or alcoholism will ln
three short days take Irom any
drinker—moderate or exccsulve—all
craving and desire for Liquor*.
The system ol the excessive drinker is impregnated, with alcoholic poison that Is takon on too fiat for nn-
turo to throw off nnd this accumulated poisoa causes tli,.' intense craving
und dt'Rire which more drink and
then more drink only temporarily
Tho happiest und most profitable
period ol tho Vuletide to any drinking man would ho three days spout
at the Cranbrook Hospital.
The excessive drinker needs medical help as badly as does the typhoid fev.M- patient. As a well
kuown business mun advises:
"To any one who wants to 'cut
out' drink I would say—Don't lie
foolish and try and light it out with
all the tortures of Hell rucking your
body and aoul for wveks while making the tight. Take the Neal Treatment   and   get   the alcoholic poison
out of your system In three days.
You will then be In a position to
meet Mr. John Dnrlsyeorn anywhere
on equal footing."
This snme business man hud bean
u periodical drinker for over 20
"I managed to get good and drunk
from two to four times a year," ha
said. "Now ths thougnt of ltqour la
The Noul Treaoment insures a happier, brighter and more prosperous
New Year to the excessive drinker,
and it only takes three daya to
bring about this rcsnlt—three days—
not the month or more which other
treatments require with no auch
cheerful results,
Ths Neul Treatment consists ol
the administration by a trained
nurse, who Is in ennstnut attendance
of a perfectly harmless vegetable
remedy takon Internally, with pool-
lively no hypodermic injections.
The N'enl Treatment neutralises
und eliminates all the stored up alcoholic poisoning ln tbe system.
When this is done, the drinker Is in
the same physical condition that ha
wns in before ho ever had a drink,
so far as liquors are concerned, for
it is the stored up alcoholic poison
In the system that causes this appetite, and when once the alcoholic
poisoning ls eliminated, the appetite
is nlso eliminated.
Satisfaction Is guaranteed or money Is refunded. The Neal Cure waa
discovered aad perfected by Dr. Ben,.
B, Noal.
If you have a friend who ought to
rid himself of the drink or drug habit, don't delay a day. Call, write or
phone Cranbrook Neal Institute (or

Here we go, erecting slaUies and monuments to generals and peers and

right. Why shouldn't there bo a
statue of Adam somewhere, erected
by his grateful descendants?
Thero certainly ought to be, Mark,
replied Mr. lk-echer, but nobody
knows what Adam looked llko.

that if I cut my linger it would not
bleed; my limits wero swollen far beyond their usual size. At the leas!

violently, aud I frequently had fainting spells. I was under treatment
by good doctors, but it did mo no

Thc justice of thc peace was in thc
South and a marked state of Ignorance. Ho was approached by a man
desiring a divorce, and he did not
know what to do. Calling a friend
to his side, he whispered:
What's tlio law on this p'int?
You can't do ii. was tho reply. It's
put of your jurisdiction.
The husband, observing the consultation and feeling keenly his desire
to escape from his matrimonial woe,
I'm willing to pay well; got the
money right here In this sock.
.-U this the justice assumed his
gravest judicial air. Obviously he
was deeply pained. Never before in
ail his life hud he been so bowed down
by grief.
You knew before you came here,
he said sadly, that it wasn't for me to

CHHALL women emulate Judith?
!.\ It is a novel theory that has been
*-* broached, and it has apparently a long
way to go before any affirmative answer xvill
be given that will hold good generally in
courts of law- or in public opinion*
It was propounded by a woman who had

primal, savage instincts remain in the heart of
the sex—and the psychologists who have tried
So prove that woman is a savage still have
been too numerous to mention.
But when the test of feminine sentiment
came to be made, there was an overwhelming
preponderance of condemnation for her who
shall take into her own hands the vengeance
reserved to the law.
Yet the feminine verdict, indorsed though
it has been by the letter of the law in all lands
and among all peoples, flics in the face of the
verdicts of history and is set at defiance by
almost every practical rule of punishment in
the civilized world.
The anomaly is tragic, audit remains one
of the century's problems, still to be solved.
Meanwhile it constitutes at once thc newest
and the oldest puzzle of that branch of criminology which deals with plain, unvarnished
IS THERE any not ot circumstances in which a
woman i3 Justified in slaying?
History  and   the  law   havo  found plenty  ot
them,   und common  scnao does not hesitate to
igree with both.
Dut those circumstances, such as thoy have been,
•would havo justified men as well. Under moBt of the
other conditions, lit which men and women can bo
equally culpable, tho world has consistently regarded
tho woman's sin of murder as unnatural and the
man's as something not very far from normal. JVnd,
with that, the world has formed a habit of sternly
hanging the mon and of weeping sympathetically
over tho women, until it's as hard to hang a murderess as It would have been to prevent her crime
onco sho wns resolved upon it.,
Here Is tho tragedy that flung the whole question
Into the limelight:
Madame Lawrence Rachel Bloch, ot Paris, brilliant
writer, charming lecturer, club associate oj the
Duchessc d'Uzcs, admired for her genius under the
pen name of Frederick de BcauUet, called on Mr?.
James Brldgman, a beautiful American resident of
Paris, whose husband was cashier there for an
American life insurance company. Tho scene wan

Madame Ijloch. "Ho lias been your slave for four

happlnoss Ihcy can bear, and moro. Will you not

your four yenrs of possession? Havo you not, in

In i imli crimes of passion u greater snelnl danger
than attaches to lho cool, calm criminal. Mine, Uuulcl
TiCsueur, among tho best known of modern women
writers In France, held that those who kill must
frankly accept death us their punishment; otherwise
they are among the most cowardly of creatures.
"Woman's verdict was not unanimous against Madame
Bloch; but It was so emphatically In the majority for
her full punishment that it proved the truth of the
popular surmlso that, where women criminals are
concerned, the law will secure more Justice and loss
mercy with a Jury of women than it docs now with
Ua juries of men.
And this was In a case of passion where every
element of provocation and outrage appeared to have
been presenL to Inflame lho deserted wife ugalnsl a
rival whom in no other way she could defeut.
Tho murderess in fiction Is usually dealt with as
harshly as her colleagues of her own sex havo dealt
with Madame Bloch. Lady Macbeth, tho real criminal in Shakespeare's powerful tragedy, wns nn object
of horror for tho London audiences, who, in contemplating tho making of history hy their pltileBB Queen
Elizabeth with episodes us bloody and for motives no
more exalted, found the affectionate name for her oi
good Queen Bess. Attempts lo enlist the sympathies
of readers or auditors tn the woman who slays have
called for the genius of a Sardou and tlic awful situations of a "La Tosca,'' if the instinctive sense of
horror for the woman whoso hands aro imbued with
blood- Is to be prevented from welling up. Cleopatra,
much admired by her contemporaries, enemies like
.liillus Caesar included, would poison a slave as quick
ns look at lilm; but the art of a Thcophlle -Haulier
fails to make her better than repellent, ns lt falls
to leave the widow of King CandauleH look llko an
altogether lovable bride for the Gyges she Induced
to  murder hhn. /
History, unadorned, has generally treated llie
woman who slays much better. But that may he because, the famous femalo homicides have had the
advantage, so often, of motives which were unselfish,
although even purely selfish killings sometimes prove
to be justified ns ^evidence comes slowly forward to
show the mitigating circumstances.
That was thc case wllh tbo beautiful Beatrice
Cencl. Por many a long year sho bore the odium of
unforgivable parricide; and even the drama could do
little more for her in tlio imagination of the world
than palliate in some small measure the magnitude
of ber offense.
Her sufferings, hor retaliation, lier fate were all
llie products of her time, a period during which tho
paternal authority was absolute nnd when any rebellion of child against parent was deemed the most
heinous of crimes In tlio flight of God und man. Itut
of Beatrice Cencl, as time has worn on, history has
como to think moro pitifully; nud. curiously enough,
tho favorable  verdict   hns   been   steadily   coincident
With the evolution of modern faith and practice in
the theory of tho sacredness of childhood. Today the
fair Beatrice, heaving only the record of her Immoral
father In her hands, could eland forth before the
world and boldly say: "I slew him. Well, what of it?"
And the majority of the women writers who now
declare Madame Bloch's fate should ho the guillotine
would illng their arms around la Cenci's neck and
acclaim her as heroine und martyr.
Amnesty hus even been extended to the memory ot
Uie fascinating Blanca Capello, who finally became the
wife of Francis, grand duke or Tuscany. Mors was
for centuries a deteMed name among Hie Florentines,
with whom the traditions of the assassinations she
wns believed to have instigated remained a continual
source of horror. Blanca had not a moral quality lo
redeem her reputation; she wus as heartless as sho
proved unchaste; as ambitious as she wns scheming;
as unflliui ns she wns adventurous. But she managed
ber plans so well and she displayed such remarkable
qualities in government, once she had in her grasp
the power she coveted, that biographies of distinguished women compiled today do not fail to accord
her career extensive space, and do not refrain from
allotting her a high rank among the great women of
the world.
it needs unadulterated criminality, like Clytem-
nestra's, to force history into giving the murderess
her just dues. Her liaison With Aeglsthu.s might havo
been passed over na romantically us the poets glozo
the elopement of Helen with Paris. But when, nn his
return from lho Trojan war, Agamemnon, her husband, met death at Clytemnestra's hands, even lho
most gallunt of hlHlorlnns, in tbe most fabulous
period of Grecian chronicles, had to acquiesce In the
fitness of the destiny which left the murderess lo bn

Newspapers publishers and citizens
generally throughout the Dominion
are unanimous in their opinion that
the picture entitled "Mother's Treasures" given with The Family Herald
and Weekly Star of Montreal, this
season, is a most delightful and
beautiful subject. Here is the opinion of one publisher: "Mother's
Treasures," Is a marvel of beauty.
The subject is one that will have a
tendency to strengthen home ties.
We, in the same business wonder
how you can alTord to give such value in pictures besides the vast a-
mount of good things in The Family
Herald and Weekly Stnr." Signed
