What is a Salvage Department ? Answer    The Sewerage   By-Law      <'The    Geisha's"    Success
What Does it do fur thc poor and the unfortunate
This article tells
To be submitted again to the Ratepayers

Local Musical Talent proved itself
Worth its weight in Gold
The problem ol dealing with unemployment has never heen a serious
ono in this land of ours. That there
is work for all and plenty of it, is a
fact that cannot bo disputed. At tho
same time we aro forced to recognize
the existence in our larger cities, of
a certain number ol unfortunates,
who, through one cause and another,
are "down and out." A considerable
proportion ol them are mere loafers,
who prefer idleness to honest, toil,
For them wo havo no sympathy. We
hold to the   Bible precept that if   a
crippled with rheumatism, and had
no lood or lire. When questioned, he
said that ho depended solely on his
wife tor support, that she lind fallen
down and hurt herself and had to go
to the hospital, aad that lie was now
alone and helpless, Furthermore, the
landlord had threatened to turn him
out on the street if lie did not pay
the rent. This seemed to distress
him more than anything else, tor he
kept saying. "Mary will have no
home to go to when she gets out ol
the hospital."    The old couple   did
have gone nnd what would you have
done had It not been tor The Salvation Army?"
"We'd huve gono to jail, ami alter
that—well who knows?" answered
"Tho Salvation Army's all riglit,
and they have helped as out tine",
said another.
Three out of the seven afterwards
came hack to buy clothing witli the
lirst money they earned. It wns one
way of     showing    their     gratitude,
An old man was found by an officer  living in a dark and dirty backroom
man will not work neither shall he
eat. But some there are who, alter a
long tight against sickness and other
misfortunes, have at last come to the
ond of their resources and know not
where to turn for help. These are tbe
really deserving class, and It waB
with the object oi assisting such that
the Salvage Work of the Salvation
Army waa started in Canada some
three years ago. Tho development ot
the work haa been a surprise, even to
the officers engaged in It. More and
more do they now see the opportunities ahead of them,for helping the
poor and the unfortunate, and they
are linking hands and co-operating
one with the other in order to do
still more effective work. The unique
organisation of the Salvation Army
is a great factor in their success.
Without it they would fail to accomplish half aa much.
A glance at tho results for Just one
moment only will give our readers
some idea of what is being done,
during one months work in Toronto
alone fonr hundred persons were
supplied with articles ol clothing entirely free of cost, while seventeen
hundred obtained clothing at a nominal price. In addition to this tour
hundred men werc given temporary
employment, and one hundred and
forty-sli ex-prisoners were met at the
prison gate and supplied with meals
and clothing.
The practice of making a small
charge for the goods, which barely
covers the cost of collecting and distributing, helps the deserving poor
to retain their aelf respect, and the
institution to be self supporting. We
do not agree with the policy of doing our charity to the poor after the
same style as thc monks of old did.
Our aim is to help the poor to help
themselves, and not to pauperize
them. This plan, we tind is succeeding admirably, and hundreds ol
struggling tamiiles In our big cities
are today much better dressed, and
havo more furniture In their homes
than they could have hoped lor had
there been no Salvage store where
they could purchase goods at a low
figure. We will just mention two
cases as typical ot many.
Ona day a little girl came into the
store leading her little brother hy
the hand.
"Please sir, can you give Johnny a
pair of boots and some stockings for
five cents?" she asked.
Johnny was promptly 11:tod with
the desired articles and went ofl feeling proud of the fact that they had
been bought  and not    begged    (or.
On another occasion a ragged and
dirty urchin was observed examining
a bicycle in the store.
"How much do you want for this,
mister?" be asked.
"I think you want a new suit more
than a bicycle," said tbe officer.
"Now, I'll tell you what to do. Oo
borne and ask your mother to give
you a good wash. Then tell her that
if she will pay fifty cents I will give
you a new outfit, boots and all."
The lad run ofl and soon reappeared
minus the dirt and plus the half dollar. Ho got the outfit, and both he
and his parents were mightily pleased.
But occasionally a poor family ts
discovered who are utterly unable to
pay anything at all for either clothes
ol furniture. It ls plain that such
persons must ho helped gratuitously
or not at all, and so ths Salvage
officer does not hesitate to supply
their wants.
On one occasion a very old man
wae lound by an officer living in a
dark and dirty back room.  He was
not own a stick of furniture, and
their prospects thus seemed exceedingly dark and comfortiesa. When
asked why he did not go to tlio poor
house, the old man began to cry and
said: "They'd heen together tor over
sixty yeare now, and we want to he
with each other to the end."
Under these circumstances the officer thought it best to help them get
a nice little home where they could
paas their declining days in peace.
He rented a nice bright room (rom
the Salvage department. When tbe
old lady came out of. the hospital
ahe waB overjoyed to find auch a
comfortable home awaiting her. Tho
old couple were helped for a tew
weeks, and then the woman was able
to resume her former occupation and
earned enough to support the two.
They are very grateful to The Salvation Army for thus tiding them
over a difficulty, and are especially
thankful that they now have a lew
blta of furniture to call their own.
If the kind persons who give articles of furniture could trace the final
destination of those gifts and witness
the appreciation of the poor folks
who benefit by them, they would
surely be convinced tbat the Salvage
Bepartmcnt meets a great need.
Another direction in which our
Salvage Department proves of untold
value ls in providing temporary
employment for those who are down
Another case was as follows: A
man came to the city with a few
dollars in his pocket, thinking he
would speedily get employment. He
was disappointed, however, when
his money was all gone ho pawned
his clothes. Still he could not find
a Job. In despair he thought of
suicide. Whilst in this frame of
mind he happened to pass the Salvage Store, he turned to the Salvation Army as his lost hope. He did
not want charity, he declarod.—he
wanted work,
Just at that moment thc telephone
rang. A gentleman wanted to know
if tbe Army could send him a handy
man to do work about the house and
garden (or a few days. "Here's your
opportunity," said Stafi-Captain
Sims to the would-be suicide. The
man's (ace lightened up wonderfully,
nnd he set ol! to the addrcas given
him with a new hope in his heart.
That temporary job proved his salvation—from a Bocial standpoint at
any rate. A few days later a permanent, position was found for him,
i and he Ib now doing well.
I The saving of drink victims is also
quito a feature of the Salvation De-
1 partment.     On several occasions eni-
: ployers of labor have sent men to
the Officer in charge, requesting him
to try and cure them of drunkenness.
It is gratifying to learn that not
only hnve several of theao men given

The musical treat that hns heen
looked forward to for some weeks,
proved on Thursday night to be au
unbounded success. The hitherto
untuuehed and undiscovered mine of
musical talent, brought tu light hy
the untiring aud energetic efforts of
Mi. Qeorge D. Ingram, musical con
dUOtor, proved to be pure. gold. In its
execution of that well known play
"The Geisha", Every performer,
from the etiorus to the lending principles who took part therein ts deserving uf the highest praise. Such
excellent work, taking the company
an a whole is seldom found on the
stages of our theatres, even by the
professional artists who travel
throughout the length and breadth of
our province. Special mention must
also he made to the splendid work oi
the orchestra, all of whom were Io
cal  talent.
The Auditorium was full almost
every seat being occupied before the
orchestra began their opening overture.
As the orchestra commenced to
play, the curtain slowly rising, revealed a beautiful stage setting, and
some forty Oelsha and Japanese
girls, beautifully costumed, who rendered the opening chorus "Happy
Japan "in a way that brought forth
rounds of applause. Then followed
the entrance of the officers of H. M.
S. Turtle. R. T. Brymner as Reginald Fairfax, and D. J. McSweyn as
Dick Cunningham proved to be favorites  with   the large  audience.
Mr. McSweyn, rendered "Dear Little Jappy Jap Jappy" combined
with a dance, that was greeted with
applause, and un eiicore.
Mrs. E. Paterson aa tho chief Oelsha girl, Mimosa San showed distinct
talent In her rendering of the "Amorous Goldfish", and the "Jewel of
Asia" and responded several times
to repeated encores. The lesson she
received from Reginald Fairfax, "Mr.
Brymner" of the ways and customs
of English lovers, brought forth
hearty applase from an appreciative
audience, and a beautiful bouquet
from her friends.
The lamentations of "Wun Hi" the
!»> the stringent and harsh orders of
the Marquis Imari, governor of the
province, and chief of police, was
splendid; the aingiug and acting of
Mr. Archie Raworth, as Wun Hi,
showed a complete study of the part
Miss Henley, as "Miss Molly Sea-
more" one of the guests of Lady
Constance" was exceptionally good,
the rendering of thia character, combined with her sweet voice captivated
the audience. The effectiveness of
hei acting was undoubtedly due to
natural way she bad in all ber
movements, and proved, as we often
heal said,"to the manner horn". Later during the performance Mis*
Molly was presented with a beautiful bouquet. A song and dance,
"Chow Klma" by Miss Molly, at the
auctioning ofl of tlie Geisha girls,
at the command of the Marquis, was
one Of the most effective numbers
rendered during the whole evening,
calling forth unstinted applause, aud
a handsome bouquet from some ad-
mlrlng friend.
Mrs. F. Bouchard, aa Juliette
proved herself to be an able interpreter who knew just how to take
care of herself, yet scheming to become the bride of the Marquis. Her
song "If that'a not Love, what is"
was encored, and she also received a
lovely  briquet.
Thc chorus singing throughout tbe
whole evening was of the most perfect kind, together with the dancing
nnd light effects was worthy of the
utmost praise.
Mr. George Ingram ia to congratulated upon his untiring zeal and the
efforts he has made to make this
musical    production a great success.
Mr. Ingram in undertaking this
work realized the hardships that possibly might be met with in organising so large a company and securing
a proper rendering of the production,
by the hearty co-operation ot all
those who took part in his labors,
not only will tbe musical aide of hia
work be a great help, perhaps, who
knows, but that it will result In the
organization of a permanent choral
society in our city, the social side of
which cannot be overlooked..   Cran-
proprietor of the Tea House, caused  hrook is proud of its musical talent.

Bent to Staff-Captain Sims from the
Toronto Police Court. They had
been brought before tho magistrate'
for vagrancy, and he was about to
send them to prison, whon our Po-!
lice Court Officer pleaded that thcyj

The magistrate consented, and the
men were duly set to work In the;
Salvage Department at such jobs as
sorting paper and rags, cleaning
windows, and helping the drivers unload. They were all in a ary dilapidated condition as regards their
clothing, and three ol thorn wero
without shoes—wearing only mocassins. In the summer they had worked on n lake steamer and earned
good money, but having spent all,
they were now in tho condition of
the Prodigal Son—penniless and far
from home. They all seemed very
glad that a chanco had heen given
them, and worked very willingly. In
leaa than two weeks the Staff-Captain had found positions lor all ol

writes the Apostle (Acts 11, 84). Tl.
Divine verdict went forth thut He had

highest plane — the divine nature
iKnhesi-ina i. 20. 91).
Our fancies muy legitimately picture that tne hul) angels marveled at
tne Redeemer's experiences from the
lime that He left the heavenly ulory
and was made flesh and dwelt amongst
us until, by His resurrection change,
tie returned again irom the earthly
nature to the heavenly plane, "far
above angels.' As they sang at His
nativity a rapturous song uf glad
tidings of great joy to all people, su
they were tilled with amaxemenj,
surely, at how the Father perin.ited
Him to be tempted and tried aud
injured for Him His cup of suffering,
which He drained to the dregs. They
marveled when "He died, the Just
for the unjust." They looked ami
wondered, as hour after hour He remained in the tn tub—dead. Their
loyalty to the Heavenly Father wa_
tested dur.ng tnat pei.od, but was
rewarded when they beheld that Divine power raised Him up even to a
more excellent glory than that which
He   had   before.
With what alacrity the angel, must
have acknowledged the risen Oue, in
harmony with the Father's declaration, "Let all cue angels of Cod worship Him." "Worthy is the Lamb to
receive glory and honor, dominion,
might and power." The poiu_t to be
specially noticed is the change of nature which our Redeemer experienced
In His resurrection. That change did
not take place during the three days
uf Jesus' burial, but during the three
and a half years uf His ministry,
which ended with His resurrection.
When thirty years of age He gave |
Himself—He surrendered His earthly
privileges and rights and hopes into
the Father's hands, to be obedient to
everything which Divine providence
might permit. At that moment Hia |
sacrifice of His flesh was accepted.
The evidence ot its acceptance waa
the impartatinii of the Holy Spirit,
which as a dove rested upon Him
aud exercised a quickening and il* j
lumiuating influence upon His mind, I
enabling Him tu understand more I
than human things and to perform
more   than  human   acts.
It was Jesus, a New Creature, be* I
gotten of the Spirit at Jordan, that 1
did the mighty works of the Father. [
Hia flesh. His humanity, was gradually  laid down sacrificial ly, in  harmony   with  the  Divine   providences.

This Easter Sunday celebrates the
momentous event of our Lord's resur-
rection from tlie dead. His resurrection ia either a truth or a falsehood.
In our text St, Paul assures ua that
if It ia untrue, our faith, our hopes,
our preaching and teachings are of
ao avail—useless. If the resurrection
of the dead is impossible, then the
resurrection of Jesus waa impossible.
it the resurrection of Jesus did not

Let noue avoid the question I Let
all decide at once! Kitiier we believe
i.i a resurrection from the dead, or
we do not believe in it. If the resurrection be a myth then, say a the
Apostle, all those wbo fell asleep with
faitn in Christ are perished—they are
not in heaven, Purgatory nor eternal
torment. If we believe in the resurrection of the dead, both ol the juat
and tlte unjust, tbeu, logically, wt
must believ: that they are dead, except in the Divine promise, purpoae,
arrangement. The decision of this resurrection question is a most moinen-
tuous one. as it affects practically
every doctrine of the Christian
(.'hurcti. ll we get straight tbe doctrine i,( the Ransom effected through
the Redeemer, and the doctrine of the
Resurrection of the dead, all of our
doctrines will fall into line, and all

The Apostle's words give a furthei
suggestion:   Uur   Lord   in   His  resurrection   became   "the    lirst-fruits    ut
then that slept."   This signifies that
none was ever raised trom the dead
I  before Him.   As another Scripture de-
I clareS. "He was the first that should
| arise   from   the   deud."    '1 here   were
indeed  others   awakened   from   the

!   there   must   of   necessity   be   after-
j fruits.    And this the Apostle proceeds
[ to   prove,   declaring   tnat   "as   ull   iu
Adam die, even so all ni Christ shall
be   made   alive"   vl   Corinthians   xv.
29).   Glorious resurrection hope! Pre
clous   Bible!    The   one   Book   aloft
which  teaches  a  resurrection ol
dead,  or  that   tiie  dead   are dead.
The Apostle proceeds to tell us that
the dead will not all be resurrected
together ut once "but every man in
hli own order" tl. Corinthians xv,
*£l). The lir.t order nr rank will be

be the Work of the entire reign of

Jarawaa for such crimes. Perhaps
those, in authority thought in their
hearts tbat two or three convicts
more or less did not matter much.
Or they may even have considered h
to be a case of "good riddance to bad
rubbish." Anyhow, it was argued, to
try to seek out these savages in their
native jungles was worse thnn the
proverbial search after the needle iu
a haystack.
On the date of the last two above-
mentioned raids, however, there
chanced to be in command of the
Anduinuncsc native police at Port

The proprietor of a London chop-

and fortune by the discovery of a

sound came from a newly-opened barrel of oysters. With eagerness he
hunted for the cause and found sn
oyster which seemed to amuse itself
by whistling. The innkeeper advertised it, and hundreds came daily to
his hostelry to listen to the musical
oyster. In due time the oyster died,
and its secret died with it. It ia supposed that the sound waB caused by
the inspiration and expiration of air

Best-Looking Man In Society.
'i.ie Earl of Chesterfield, who was
recently the central figure in an action relating to the sale ot a valuable
suit of armor worn by one of his
ancestors, comes of an illustrious family, whose members have done good
service to the state.
Sir Edward Stanhope was knighted
on the f.eld of battle by Henry VII.
for his intrepid aid in suppressing a
Cornish rebellion. The first Earl of
Chesterfield fought gallantly for King
Charles against tbe Parliamentary
Army, his house at Shelford proving
a stronghold for the Royalist party
until it w&s burned to the ground and
his son Philip killed.
The fourth earl wag not only au
ah!; diplomatist and capable Lord
Lieutenant of Ireland, but also a writer of ability, whose letters to hia aon
and to his godson have become English claasica.
The present Lord Chesterfield, who
is credited with being the best-looking and best-groomed man in society,
was treasurer of the King's household
in 1892-4 and captain of the Corps of
Gentleinen-at-Arms in 1894-5. while at
& resent he is Lord Steward of His
lajesty's Household. In thia capacity he has command of the hall, kitchen, and pantry, and also tlie wine,
beer, and coal cellars.

It was about twenty years ago that
Lord Waleran had one of the narrowest shaves ol his Iile.
It was on a Thursday in Ascot
week, and thc Liberals had arranged
a very careful little plot for a snap
division. It was sprung at a tine
when many Unionist M.P.'s were disporting themselves upon the classic
racecourse, but by herculean efforts
the whip managed juat to avert defeat. It was only a majority of lour,
but it was a majority.
On another occasion his lordship
broke one ol the most cherished rules
of the House by passing in Iront ot
Mr. Balfour while the latter was
speaking. The House, instead ol
shouting "Order I" merely gasped, but
Lord Waleran had done it intentionally to show the Prime Minister that
he had something of great importance
to communicate. The division list a
litue later showing a Government matt; later showing a Qovernment majority of only twenty revealed what
that "something" was.

The Restoration ol the Name "Active"

Battle In Which th* Gallant Frigate of That Name, Along With
Three Other Ships, Beat the French
Near the I eland of Llesa.
': wo numea of lighting fame have
just lien udded to the modern cruiser roll ol thu royal navy, in special
honor tlie centenary—a unique event
in our naval annals—ol the dashing
Iriaati' buttle ofl Liasa, in the Adriatic, in iVturch, 1811. The Auiptuoii
and the Active are the two uumt-s,
and they are given to commeuiorule
at the Hume time two ol tlie llnest
cujitnius who ever trod a British quur-
tQr-deek—Slr William Host* and tiir
Juinoa Alexander Gordon.
More tlutn that, too, the pair were
br,pHiers-in-arm» in the lullest sense -
linked together in a Iriendship best
eiiui|,urat,ie with that between Nelson
mid Collingwood. It may be added
tiiat tlie battle ol Liasa is a unique
event us. being ttie ouly action on re-
curl lought between squadrons oi Iri-
Hoate, in the Amphion, was the
commodore—the oilier in cummaiid
—"Nelson's Hosto"—the great admiral's tuv,trite midshipman and iileloi.g
follower. Sir James Alexander Gordon, of the Active, was one of the
noblest fellows that ever lived—a typical British man-ol-war's man of tlie
best stamp. Passing through every
grade of naval rank with distinction,
he ended his daya aa tlte last Governor of Greenwich Hospital—the last
successor in that high post to men
such as Rodney and Hood and "Nelson's Hardy,"
On Marcli 13, 1811, Hoste and Gordon, in their two ships, with a third
frigate—the Cereberus, Captain H.
Whitby—and a small corvette—the
Valagc. 'apt.iu Phippa Hornby—were
cruising near the little island of Lissa,
which they used aa an anchorage and
watering-place, when there suddenly
appeared six lurge French and Venetian Irigates, with a flotilla of smaller vessels, proposing to seise and
garrison L'ssa for themselves. The
British frigates termed close line-
aheud at once, just as though they
were two-deckers—real ships ol the
line. The Amphion led, with the Active near her. Hailed Hoste to Gordon, as the enemy came on, from the
poop of the Amphion, "1 say, Jemmy
puss the word to keep the Hying jib-
boom over the tafl'rel; We mustn't
let the rascals break the line. Hall
an hour on this tuck ia worth two on
the other!"
The French came on in t*o columns
of attack, exactly copying Nelson's
Trafalgar formation. If numbers,
position and formation meant victory,
it was theirs. But the British leader
was not a Villeneuve, Hoste, as tho
Frenchmen came bowling down before the wind, hoisted his buttle signal — "Kememuer Nelson!" — which
was greeted with one tremendous
burst ol cheers along his line.
Tha next moment, as the headmost
Frenchman near them, the Amphion
and Active and the other two opened
a fust tiro, under which the enemy
reeled. They shrank back from their
attempt to break tlie line, hauling up
instead, U> run alongside the British
ships. Then an attempt was made
to board the Amphion, but a tornado
ol grape and canister from her car-
ronudes swept the decks of the foremost Frenchman clear of all but dead
and dying.
After that, the enemy tried to head
off the Amphion and Active, and then
double round on their line and get
It between two fires. The two squadrons went racing on meanwhile, cannonading hard. But Hoste was again
too clever for the enemy. He knew
there was a reef under water a little
wa/ in iront ol them, and, before
th.: French could get ahead ol him,
he manoeuvred so as to make their
foremost - ship run herself right on
to the rocks.
The moment the French commodore
struck, out flew a signal, and round
t'.ie British squadron went, turning
back all together and reversing their
order. The French ships did the
same, and sharp fighting continued
in line on the opposite tack, until the
badly beaten-ofl enemy broke up in
hopeless disorder, which gave individual captains their chance.
Within hall an hour a French 40-
gun frigate, the Flore, had hauled her
colors down to the Active (38 guns):
but Captain Gordon "disdaining the
parade of taking possession ol a beaten enemy," went on after another 40-
gun Irigate—also bigger than the Active—the Corona. He caught her up,
aud mude her surrender, within gunshot of the shore, just as the general
battle was closing.
Then he rejoined his consorts, to
lind that the surrendered Flore had
stolen away under cover of the battle-
suioke, re-hoisted her flag, and got
beyond reach. It waa a bitter disappointment to the gallant Gordon and
tin: cause ol much annoyance afterwards; for some of the London editors blamed him for not having secured her. lt was not so, however,
with those who knew the mau. As
Hoste himself put it: "People don't
know Gordon if they think he'd waste
1 minute over a prise while an enemy's flag was flying in sight!"—E. F.
in The Graphic.

Superstition Which Various Nations
Use to Safeguard Their Young.
Most of us ara superstition* upon
at least one point, and mothers ara
particularly so with respect to their
It is still considered a necessity in
many parts of England that a child,
when first leaving the mother's room,
should go upstairs before going down.
It frequently happens that the room
nf the mother 1, the highest in the
hnti*e. When such is the case the
dilliculty is met by the nurse setting
a chair and stepping upon that before she leaves the room.
There are numerous other superstitions. Prosperity and long life are
assured to the buby in whose hanJ
a silver coin or a new-laid egg is
placed, and tho same good luck will
be the lot of tho infant if it is placed
in a maiden's arms before anyone
else touches it.
The baby should on no account
make its first pubtio appearance out
ol doors unless it is accompanied by
a small loaf of bread, an egg, some
salt and a penny. If this precaution
Is omitted the grown-up career of the
hitby will be one of poverty and distress. The baby that cries lustily
during the christening ceremony is
supposed to have good luck.
The Spaniards also believe in determining the baby's walk In life at
once. To do this they place a silver
coin, a silver cross, a sword, a hook
and some fruit in front of him and
let him make his choice. If he takes
the coin he will go into business: if
tiie sword, he will be a soldier; th'1
cross, a priest: the book, a scholar,
and the fruit, s farmer. They also
believe that a band of gold or silver
or even jet, put around buby, will
keen him from harm.
The Truks put a piece of mud,
which has been steeped In hot water,
upon baby's forehead, believing that
the charms which have been used In
preparing the mind will protect the
child. The Hindus declore that baby
must be called after the name of a
god, for' tben will the deity be flattered at the frequent UBe of his name
and he induced to think well of the
child. The Arabians name the child
ns soon as it is born, as then the
tribesmen will honor it. The Persians string amulets ond necklets
around baby's neck, os th'-'ti the bad
spirits will not touch him.
The Belgians teach their babies to
make the sign of the cross, for they
believe that this will certainly outwit the devil.

The thrift of France is wonderful.
It enabled the nation to bear the enormous losses of the Franco-Prussian
war, including the payment of 5,000.-

no demoralisation of trade and with
hardly any depression of industry.
Ou. uf 10,000,000 French electors
9.000,000 have money in the bank or

Everybody saves. Ill various savings
institutions there are 4.000,000 accounts of only 20 francs or less each,
and the totul number of all savings
accounts reaches 13,000,000. One million live hundred thousand small investors hold probably 20.000,000.000

The kidneys are most susceptible
to cold and a suildcn lowering of
temperature throws an extra burden
on them by closing the pores of tlie

Pimples,     Eruptions     and   "Spotty
At this season, scores of people-
girls and young women especially—
find their faces disfigured by pimples, dark spots, eruptions, etc. The
skin needs attention—needs renovat*
ing aftcT tlie trying time it has passed
thruugh during the winter.
Just think what it has gone
through! You have been out in the
rain and sleet and snow. You have
beeu at one moment perspiring from
skating or some other exertion. Then
you have stood to "cool off." You
have spent hours of the day indoors
at u temperature equal to summer
heat. Then you have covered up
your skin—except your face—and
gone out into a temperature away
below zero! No wonder that, with
all these changes, the skin of the
face and neck shows signs of need'
iug attention.
Zam-Buk and Zam-Ituk Soap are
the remedies. Smear Zam-Buk lightly
over the spots, the eruptions, the
sallow patches, at night, and wash
with Zam-Buk Soap (only 25c per
tablet) each day. Then notice how
quickly your appearance improves.
As the rich, refined herbal essences
sink deep into the tissue, the hard,
scurfy-like patches arc removed.
Better color results. The cells of the
skin become transparent. The blood
beneath is able to impart its proper
coloring to the tissue, nnd the delicate bloom of health replaces the
sollowness and pallor of disease.
Zam-Buk is also a sure cure for
skin injuries and diseases. Eczema,
ulcers, ringworm, yield to its use.
For cuts, burnH, bruises, children's
rashes, etc., it is unequalled, and for
piles. Mothers will find Zam-Buk
Soap best for baby's bath! All druggists und stores at 50c. box for Zam-

To the average circus audience a
clown is a clown, pure und simple.

Earl Knit, Secke.
The Earl of.Anucaster, who i. Lord
High Chamberlain ol thc English
court, has taken up the pastime ol
knitting socks in order to prove, for
one thing, that he can practice his
belief in the promotion of home in
dustries. This at first cicited tin-
merriment of the duchess, but it is
understood t! at she now not only
sympathizes with the idea, but assist-
the earl iu tilling orders.
The earl insists that homemnde
socks are infinitely more comfortable
to wear than the machine made var
iety. He acc.uired the practice by
finding that when idly sitting around
he smoked too much. He took u|i
knitting, therefore, and found it wa-
a great preventive ot the undue use
of tobacco.
On hearing this confession the
Bishop ol Lincoln immediately gave
the earl au order for two pairs ol
socks, which was duly booked, hoo
others in Burke's Peerage fell in with
thj fashion.

A Sartorial Tragedy.
Mfiny duds an; to be .uuuht at Na-
gyvarad, Hungary, as the result uf n
dispute about the costume worn by
the president of the local union uf
solicitors at a ball. It appears that
lie attended a ball given by the X.-nry-
varad law students in a light blue
summer suit and brown shoes. Tlie
townsfolk who had been invited to
tlie ball interpreted this costume as
an insult. A meeting of the law students called to debate the question
was uf a stormy nature.
One hundred and twenty-two "deadly insults," it is recorded, were offered and are to be wiped out by a corresponding number of duels. The po*
Uce broke up thc meeting. The duel*!
are tu be fought with swords.
Reason Enough.
A negro had been arrested for chick-
e.i stealing. He had stolen so many
that his crime had become grand larceny.
He was tried, convicted and
brought in fur sentence.
"Have you any reason to offer why
th judgment of the court should not
be passed upon yuu?" he was asked.
"Well, jedge," he replied, "I can't
go to jai. now, nohow. I'm buildin'
a shack out yonder, and I ies' can't go
till I git it dune. You all kin sholy
see dat."

The critical condition at Ottawa
on Saturday last resulted in tlie sudden recall of Flarl Grey, governor-
general, from Winnipeg. Karl Grey
has canceled alt present engagements,
and left for Ottawa during tho evening. The determination of the Opposition to light reciprocity with the
United States all summer if necessary as outlined by leader Borden,
thus preventing Sir Wilfrid Laurier
from attending the Imperial Confer
ence aud Coronation has caused a
crisis in political circles,
• • • *
There are so many indications that
point to a general election in. the
near future. The Toronto Star,
Liberal organ, in close touch with
govet-nment leaders, a few days ago
published a dispatch from Ottawa to
tbe effect; "That the latest report
from semi -official sources, and which
is received wtth a good deal
ot credence, is that we may expect an election some what sooner
then was anticipated. It is now
said that the government plans contemplate an adjournment about tbe
middle of May. During the summer
the work of taking the census wilt,
it is .said, be gone on with, special
attention being paid to the wost, and
an early session ts to be called in
September, a redistribution act passed, and dissolution, and an appeal
to the country to follow In November. This programme Ib one which
would meat with general approval.
It ts reported that Sir Wilfrid is
anxious to appeal to the country on
the reciprocity issue but that there
will be no such appeal until the proper representation iB given to the
* • • *
The Reciprocity debate continues,
although tt ls announced that Liberal members are to he choked off. The
future discussion may be left to the
members ot thc Opposition, who are
building up a great case against the
pact. It ts Idle to pretend that the
opposition to reciprocity is sectional
when such men like Qlen Campbell
and Mr. Bradbury of Manitoba, and
Messrs, Burrell, Goodeve, and Taylor
of British Columbia arc so cut-
spoken against it. The strongest
argument against reciprocity is to
ho found In thc special message of
President Taft to the United States
transmitting the report of the Tariff
Board. Thii. Board has heen ei gaged foi thc past year in collecting
statistical information as to lhe
comparative prices of farm products
in the United States and Canada.
This report abundantly proves that
prices arc almost iniformly higher in
Canada than they are In the United
States, In a word, thc Canadian
market is to be thrown open to the
American farmers, The Amerirtn
market will be open theoretically to
the Canadian farmer, but goods do
not go to the cheaper market.

mice is doomed to failure There is
no reason to believe that the Prime
Minister of Canada will be just' as
well pleased to have no Conference
at all. He is already threatening
not to go to Loudon unions the Conservatives withdraw their opposition
to Reciprocity. Major Herron, the
sturdy and stalwart member for
Macleod, very aptly said the other
dny that it made no great difference
ii Sir Wilfrid Laurier did not attend
the Imperial Conference, His absence would not dampen the Imperial
enthusiasm any more than would his
presence; at all previous Conferences
he was an obstructionist; instead of
putting hts shoulder to the wheel he
put a stick between the spokes.

Let anyone read the Toronto
Globe's special cotrespoudencc from
Washington, dealing with chances
that reciprocity has in the senate of
the United States, and whether it is
a wise thing for Canada tn place the
making of her tarlll—and that is
what is really the issue—-in the hands
of the Congress of the United
States. According to the Globe the
senate is not only divided into parties, but each pnrty is full of internal warfare, and what with the various kinds of strategy as between
warring elements within each party,
and as between the two hig parties,
the prospect is anything but bright
for the passage of reciprocity.
furthermore it is certain that if wc
even put ourselves in the same hole
again the same will happen yoar after year, and time after time, and
tariff uncertainty will be the rule in
We cannot afford any such condition of affairs; if we wish to be let
tn American goods on lower duties
let them in once and for all or part,
and change it when wc want to; and
if the Americans wish to do the
same with regard to our goods, let
them do it. But this idea of reciprocity or joint arrangement is a
delusion and a snare, and the greatest enemy to Canada's fiscal independence that was ever perpetrated.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has made the
mistake of his life, and so has the
Liberal party, and the sooner they
net awny from it the better it will
he for them and the country. We
believe now more than ever that
there will be no reciprocity treaty.
London, Mny 3.—The Mail's Rerlin
correspondent says that while it Is
impossible in German official quarters
to obtain cither confirmation or dental of the Ottawa report that Germany hns begun preliminary negotiations for rcciproelty with Canada,!
he is enabled to state that the Ger-
man has stretched out feelers in the
direction of n German-Canadian j
agreement. The German government
makes no secret of its anxiety at thei
disadvantage thnt wll! accrue to the!

Toronto, May -1.—Tt is stated here
that the charge made Iiy "Admiral"
McOlllicudy, late of Calgary, against
a member of tho Laurier govornment
in connection with a land grant
transaction is that a $50,(100 amount
on the credit side of a certain bunk
account is trarcahle to nn order In
council at Ottawa , that permitted n
railway company to exchange 660,000
arret- of Mnnitolm swamp land for
660,000 acres of .Saskatchewan prat-
rio land, The company was entitled
to the Mnnltoha swamp land under
the Manitoba & Southeastern   char-1
ter granted iu 18J#t. in L907 they
dropped the Manitoba land and were
given the area in Saskatchewan. The
order in council relating to this transaction was part of the evidence submitted to Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Tho explanation is given here that
the land grant was changed to Saskatchewan tor the simple reason that
there were no suitable lands for selection in Manitoba.
Ottawa, May 2.—Mr, Oliver declared that there was no foundation for
such insinuations, and no special
charges made, nevertheless he would
ask that u special committee of the
house be named to enquire into and
charge which might be made in con
miction with this matter.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier then  moved for
the appointment of a select commit
too ot live members of ttie house   to,
enquire Into ttie matter to which the
minister ot the interior referred.
R. L. Borden enquired as to the
scope of the proposed enquiry, Sir
Wilfrid snid tbat tho committee
would enquire under oath into all
circumstances surrounding tho issue
of this order iu council.
Mr, Borden suggested tbe advisability of allowing the formal motion
to stand over till tomorrow. To
this the prime minister' agreed and
the matter was dropped.
Wllmer, May 3.—Navigation on the
Columbia river was opened this week
by passenger steamers from Golden
to Windermere. A large amount ol
freight is at Golden which will he
transported up the river to points in
the Upper Columbia  valley.
The Columbia & Kootenay Railway
and Navigation compnny following
in the footsteps of the government
has recently announced an increase
in the price of wild land to $10 per
acre. The private sale of two pieces
of land comprising l.GOO acres has
been announced. Tlie lands are partially improved in each case and
afford excellent views of the grand
scenery which surrounds the headwaters of the Columbia river. The
prices arc not made public but are
said to be sufficiently high to be
above high watcr mark for similar
lands in the past.
Among the residents of the vnlley
who have returned from European
tours nre Captain R. S. Grant Tbo

Bruce is vice-president of tlie Columbia* Valley Irrigated Fruit Lands

He is enthusiastic over tbe doings of

Referring to the local doings of

Eczema U a ikln -.miction to which men

health or present only at certain scusoris;
at the other extreme, tho wholo body may
be involved ln a torturing eruption. The
latter condition may gradually arise through
the neglect or Improper treatment of lesser

ln a singte day, become a mass ot eczema.
But whatever tho form of the alTecitun, th«

resorted to, many, perfectly harmless and
equally Ineffective,' others so ofTeimve to
every sense that, were It not for lhe relief
they are supposed to afford, no person of
refinement would tolerate them for an Instant.
To such sufferers, discouraged hy repeated

Instant relief afforded by the first bath with

Do Not Use Harsh Purgatives
—A Tonic is All You
Not exactly sick-hut not feeling
quite well. That's the way most
people fed in tlie spring. Easily
tired, appetite fickle, sometimes
headaches and tt feeling of depression. Pimples or eruptions may appear on the skin, or thero may be
tu inges of rheumatism or neuralgia
Any of these indicate that the blood
is out of order; that the indoor life
of winter has left its mark upon you
and may easily develop into more
serious trouble.
Don't dose yourself with purgu-
ti\es as so many people do in the
hope that you can put your blood
right. Purgatives gallop through the
system and weaken instead of giving
strength. Any doctor will tell you
this is true. What you need in the
spring is a tonic that will make new
blood nnd build up the nerves. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills is the only medicine that can do this speedily, safely
and surely. Every dose of this medicine helps to make new blood, which
cleara the skin, strengthens the appetite, and makes tired, depressed men,
women and children bright, active
an I strong. Mr. B. Martin, Deux
Rivieres, Que., says: "About a yetr
ngo I was all run down. 1 was pale,
weak, and had hut little appetite. I
also suffered from a severe pain in
the hack, and though I tried several
medicines nothing helped me until I
began the use of Dr. Williams' Pink,
Pills, and these soon fully restored
my health. I can strongly recommend these pills to every weak person."

that ninety-nine innocent men should

should escape, therefore he would find

While there la no fixed rule respecting tbe cuuipurutlve uges of husband and wife, there is a likelihood
that a very young mnn will seek nt
least the compuulonshlp of a woman
older than himself. Hut let him puss
over ten or twenty years and Ion to

flrl In her teens.
At eighteen I fulfilled the first part
Of this statement.   I wns uu oldish sort I
of fellow, fond of study and reading
books that youugsters of my age sel- )
dom look Into.   I wus half through college and Inking a good stand in my j
class, but I waa not tied down lu the
courses I pursued.   I was rather think I
log how I might utilize them.   I bad
but little to do with the young Indies
who were of an appropriate age for
collegians.   I found them mostly given j
to commonplace ehltrhat, witb which j
I had no sympathy.   They were schoolgirls only beginning to know how to !
entertain a grown mnn.
During my junior year In college I
formed tbe acquaintance of l.eonn
Whitney, a young ludy of twenty-six.
1 think she was disjiosed to be Interested In that freshness of youth there wus
about me, especially ns It showed it
■elf not In college pranks und athletics, but In a certain original way I
bad In looking upon u world Just opening up to me. At uuy rate, she liked to
chat with me. preferring evidently to
bear me talk to Miking herself. At
flrst she (rented me aa a hulf grown
nan, but by the time I wns ready to
leave college I could see no difference
In her bearing toward me nnd the
other young men of her acquaintance
AU this while, though I wae uncon-
■clous of It, Miss Whitney was exciting In me feelings other than tbose
\_»»-V -OHtS
In OWN KIND was mad. up at our n.
pertaining to friendship. I would cnll
upon her ln lbe evening when I should
be studying, Intending tu do tbe bitter
during tbe later hours of tbe night.
But on returning to my room and taking down my books 1 found myself
going over in my mind tbe topics we
bad discussed rather than tbose 1 wns
to be called to recite uikmi the next
day, or, rather, I would lie thinking of
Miss Whitney herself. She would
thrust herself between me aud my
•tudles In nn aggravating but at the
Mme time pleasing way.
However, I was assigned a part at
commencement and acquitted myself
fairly well. Meanwhile 1 bad discovered that I wished Leans Whitney to
be my companion through that career
upon which I was about to enter. Immediately before leaving college I
made her a proposition of marriage, t
bad a certain dread since 1 was so Juvenile and she so mature of facing her
•nd breaking over the line that bod
thus far separated ua.   Bo I wrote ber
■ note In which In a very few words
I asked ber to be,my wife.
i I left college a couple of days later, :
■nd before having received nn answer
1 left my address with the registrar
■o tbat any letters coming for me I
might be forwarded. Kvery day after j
my return home I looked eagerly for
■ome. word frum Miss Whtlncy. None
came. j
With   all   the   sensitiveness   of   • '•
youngster who hnd offered himself to j
■ woman considerably older than bim-
self, and one, too, who wits not with-
out offers from mature men, some of.
them desirable parties, I made up my i
mind tbat the lady considered my offer In the light of presuviptlon nnd
bad not deigned n reply, Tbis view'
of the case wns certainly not flatter- j
Ing to her, but when sensitiveness
comes Into a question valid reason!
take flight.
Twelve years gassed One day It
waa announced that the government:
was about to erect a building In the
town In which I lived. A year later
It waa finished and tbe postofflce
moved Into It Doing to tbe door ont
morning to receive my mail from tht
carrier, be handed me a letter, at tht
same time giving me an explanation
with regard to tt In tearing away
the natures of the old postofflce several letters had been discovered tbat
from time lo time bad slipped down
out of sight The letter he brought me
was one of these.
It wae postmarked it tbe town
where wu located the college ll
wblcb "l was graduated, bnd been for
warded, ond Ihe date stumped on It
.was Just twelve years before. It bad
been addressed to me at tbe college
and forwarded. The handwriting wns
tbut uf n lady, but unfamiliar tu me.
I opened It wltbout any thought
whatever as to wbo bnd written It;
but, looking first at the signature, I saw
It was Leuna Whitney. It wus a reply
to my proposal of mnrrluge.
It Is slngulur to be transported by
■ome Incident backward lu time. Holding ilmt letter lu my hnnd, I was again
■ youngster uf twenty, in love with a
woman I considered far above me.
Then  ll  occurred to tue tbat HJs_
Whitney must now be within a few
years ur forty, while 1 was thirty-two,
and old ut that
While these tboughta were flushing
through me I began to rend tbe letter.
It told uie that Ihe lady bad been
tout-bed at tbe expression uf Ibe tender feelings I bad avowed for ber and i
considered my proposal, to say the
least an honor. But there were reasons why sbe should besltnte. While
1 was far more matured than most
men of my age. It must t>e remembered
thut in ten or a doxen years I would
still be a young man, white she would
be past middle age. She confessed
thut this wus her only reason for nut
returning n fuvoruble reply to my pro*
pusul. She suggested tbut I was just
at the beginning uf my career and If
as time passed I felt tbe same sbe
would be pleased tu bear from me
While I was rending this letter I waa
sensible of having passed from my
youth to that jwrlod where a man begins to feel that young girls consider
bim old. I bad been much flattered
tbat my recent attentions tu n girl of
eighteen hud been looked upon with
favor. I bad taken her out a number
of times und persuaded myself that
the tender passion was stealing Intu
my aging breast. Hut I was not and
never bad been anything of a butterfly. I was und ulwuya hud been a
serious man. I found It somewhat
irksome tu go about as un escort lo a
young girl to auiusemeuls In which I
took no interest. The very night before I received the epistle from a
distant past I bad attended my little
girl tu a ball where sbe bud kept me
for "Just on more dunce" till 3 o'clock
In the morning.
It Is not strange thnt I was affected
by Miss Whitney's reply to a proposition made twelve years before. Tbe
dozen years she hud spoken of bud
passed und while 1 was still on the
lower side of middle nge sbe hud passed beyond tt. Nevertheless my Interest
tn buchelor life—If I ever bad nny—
hnd died down until Its pleasures had
turned to gull. My recent attendance
upon a society bud during Ihe small
hours of tbe morning was still fresh ln
my memory,while the Insipid nothings
I hud been obliged to Bay and listen to
nauseated me.
1 wrote at once to a relative of Mlse
Whitney nsking what bad become of
her, and received n reply that sbe lived
In tbe house In which she had always
lived, and In which 1 bud so often
called upon ber while I was a student
Bhe wns beloved nnd respected by all
wbo knew her aud my correspondent
wondered thut though abe bud received many offers she hud accepted uone.
A few duys after the receipt of thle
information I wus In Miss Whitney's
home and sent up my card with the
letter I bnd so recently received, having underscored un the envelope tbe
postmark showing the day it was mailed and nnother giving tbe day It was
Wben Miss Whitney came down to
receive me, with considerable embarrassment In her manner nnd a telltale
blush on her cheek, I was surprised
tbat sbe did not show ber yenrs by
half a dozen, and there was not a gray

Newsboys and "Swindlers,"
Toronto Saturday Night, a lew
months ago, got after men who bad
made lortutieB in fraudulent ways, and
the newsboys of Toronto weren't stow
to roullzi that the articles published
about those iDoii gave material for
startling cries hy which they could
Iiur y the Hale of that paper.
Hut tlie trouble with the newsboys
is thut they work these cries without
using uny judgment. When Mark
.'•' i.i died, some uf the Toronto newsboy.- noticed an article about him In
...turduy Night, and soon they were
crying, "All ubout Mark Twain, the
grevt swindler." And now the youngsters who soil papers are taking a
peculiar liberty witli the names of Tomtit i'e rich men. Saturday Night is
writiiu: up Toronto's millionaires, and
each week tho newsboys Irsiue up a
cry that startles many citizens. For
instance: on the night ol the Tetraz-
zini concert, the crowds pouring out
ol Massey Hull heard tho boys crying, "All about .lames Hyrie, the millionaire swindler." And at othcr times
similar cries vore made about Messrs.
Goodcrham, Flnvelle, and other Toronto kings of finance.

Drummond Hill Cemetery—or. aa It

The sexton did not like the looks

heroine the sexton stepped hack and
admired his handiwork. It satisfied
him thoroughly. He called several
friends to see the transformation
Wost of them came to admire and re

prepared fur criticism, and he ex
postulated with the dissenters from
his school of art. In vain he pointed
out the advantages over wear and

the storm of disapproval grew in violence.
Passersby on the street below the
rise of 'ground on which the memorial stands would stop and look in
wonderment at the unusual change
that had come over the figure on the
hillside. Then they climbed the
fence for closer inspection, and join

A Chip of tho Old Block.
Men who, after starting life with
out u cent, have accumulated o fortune, delight in lecturing the rising
generation on the way it was done.
Their advice may not be an accurate
description of their own work, hut
it is always highly edifying. A short
time ago a well-known Torontonian
who has made a success both financially end as a philanthropist, was
tendered a dinner by his employes
When the time came for speech-making, he told the young men how to
succeed. He took himself ns an example, How had ho achieved the
position which he now held? He always valued education. The first
dollar he saved, he put into a book.
That fact alone was the secret of hit
success in life.
When he sat down, leaving all those
at the table duly edified, his son, who
had enjoyed the privileges of the
wealthy, followed with a dashing address tn which he referred to the first
speaker. "I am a chip off the old
block," he announced. "I know how
the govirnor made good, and so at «
very eurly age I decided to go and do
likewise. Later on I carried out my
resolve. The flrst dollar I got, I put
into a hook, too, and I may add that
the bookie has it still.'*

Canada Has Very Few Memorials of

The  custom   of   expressing  public
sentiment  and  anpr elation  fur  the
deeds ot individuals by means of graven  images,   _taiuj.ins-   of   coins   aod

were thus honored and then it was
only queens who received the mark of
distinction because of their power and
glory, says KUith Carew in Saturday

seldom fail- to attract the attention of

Iu February, i.HXi, a fi-- occurred
In a sul iiu kin school of Montreal,
which occasioned u terrible loss ol
life. All Canada «*us thrilled hy the
heroism of one of the teachers in
that building, a Scotch girl. She hal
charge of the primary department oil
an iipiier floor and succeeded in con
ducting forty of the small pupils to
safety, hue went jack to the sixteen

death, aud when the flames werc sub
dued she was found dead with her
little charge.- abut her. Much enthusiasm was aroused by her act of
heroism and self--acrif.ee, aud a chil
dren's hospital of f.iat city was erected and dedicated to her memory.

her fearics. rescue of the settler's
family from a canoe in the very face
uf imminent death, have been recounted over and over by file even
lng fireside--. A true follower ot Joan
of Are, this little French maiden of
barely fourteen years was able to keep
up tiie courage of her little company,
which induced two cowardly soldiers
who would have blown Uie fort up
rather than tnnkt a defence if she had
not deterred their hands and spurred
them on to action. Her act of heroism merits more recognition in the
..«_, of public memorial than it has
yet received.
One of the most prominent historical figures among Canadian women is
unquestionably Laura Secord, who
has twice been honored by public memorials, one, a hrone bust at Lum
dy's Lane, where she is buried, and
the other a bronze tablet ou a marble
monument at Queenstoii Height*.,
near Brock's monument, but recently
All who knew Laura Secord in her
time testified to her noble character,
nnd there were none who did not rejoice to see her honored before her nation as, perhaps, its brav t woman.
Sh. was of fair face and kind brown
eyes, and a sweet, loving smile hovered about her mouth. The bust jit
Luudy's Lane more justly represent.**
these characteristics of her features,
while the recently completed tab! t at
Ou''**nston Heights represents her in
old life wearing her quaint white cap
framing a face lined with enre.
There are plans in a more or less
completed state to honor other Canadian women in thc near future, and
there has been some very recent talk
of a memorial to the mourning queen
mother, Alexandra. Only a few days
since a huge deputation were sent to
ask the Government for funds to erect
a monument to the men who tell in
the war of 1812, and in summing up
their appeal they asked that it be* nut
only to commemorate the men who
fought and fell in that war, but also
to the women who aided them so val
iantly, many of whom loaded their
husband's muskets and helped iu
every way iu their power to carry the
war on to victory. "They," said the
speaker, "merit honor t_uite as much
as tl-e men."
