THE COUNTRY GIRL
ADMIRABLY PRODUCED BY THE CRANBROOK OPERATIC SOCIETY
BEFORE CROWDED HOUSES
Mono) Monckton's two act musical,
comedy, "Tlu- Country Girl" was
admirably produce*! at the Auditor-'
lum by tin* Cranbrook Operatic j
Surjoiy ni Tuesday and Wednesday
evenings of Ihis Week, This produc-
hon was quite tlio most pretentious
ever attempted by loeal talent and,'
in fairness, ii must Ih* suit) tlml the
production reflected tho greatest
cmtit upon all concerned. To Mr*
Geo. l>. Ingram, under whoso direction llir comedy was produced, tbc
entire performance must havo been
exceedingly gratifying. Krom start
to finish everything went oft without
tlte slightest hitch. Staging, scenery, costumes, and, above all, the
orchestea, were quite exceptionally
good fnr an amateur performance.
That. Cranbrook possesses some exceedingly clever musical artists was
once again abundantly emphasized.
On the whole ithc performances would
have done credit to the best travelling musical organizations on tin*
road, in (act, very few of them tbat
have si ruck Cranbrook in recent
years, have ever provided anything
half as good.
ll is somewhat of an Invidious task
to particularize in commenting upon
an amateur production of this character, and Where all were so goml
special mention of individuals is practically uncalled for. However, some
brief mention of the chief performers
will not be out ot place. Mrs. Oeo.
F. Stevenson, as the Princes Mehc-
lanch of Hhong, thoroughly sustained
ibe reputation tbat preceded her arrival from , Fernie, as a finished actress. Her singing was a rare treat,
and her rendition of M Under the
Deodor" was one of the decided bits
of the performance. Mrs. R. It.
(Benedict, as Manjery Joy, was equally charming, Iht singing of the
»'C,»o" song elicited a very hearty encore. Mrs. P. Bouchard's "Nan*'
nnd Miss Margaret Kennedy's "Madame Sophie" were two exceptionally
clever comedy roles, well sustained
throughout! and quile one of the
most delightful features of the performance. Mrs. a. l. McDermot, as
Mrs. Quinton Itaikcs, made a very
handsome am! imposing SOClot) queen.
Miss Itiimsey, in a number uf special
dances,  proved herself an exceedingly
clever dancer,  whilst   tlw Misses Flu-j
nis ami Service aduurabh sustained
thei I respective roles. Among the
im re men, probabl) tin* highest medc
of praise should go to Mr. a. Ra-
wiuili, wlm was fumiii i than evet

S. Macdonald, secretary of the

Mr, Brewster, in resuming the debate ou ilu* second reading of tho
'Forests Hill, was given a hearty reception.     He said:
"The hill now licforc the bouse
one of such vital inlcrcsl, touching
ns it docs possibly tho greatest
set in the province—-llial of its
timber— that it is ono which 1 think
should receive a very large measure
of discussion on the lloor of the
Ionise. This bill must have a very
far-reaching effect, ami I think that it
is only fair to expect that every
member here, and especially those
who represent constituencies in
which large timber areas are included, should give public utterance
to iheir convictions and their views
on Uie matter. The bouse should
expect—and I believe Uie country will
give this measure thorough discus-
rion before allowing it to become
law. 1 do not believe that il is
enough that the question has been
discussed in caucus hy the Conservative party uml possibly found to be
measurably satisfactory to that'political party, hut it is due to tbc
country that such further discussion
should take place as io familiarize
those interested with the legislation
which it is Intended lo pass.
"I look on this matt?r seriously,
and would call on tbe honorable
members to note that in this matter, wbieh affects the greatest asset
of the province, they are, in the
house, acting as directors on behalf
of shareholders, ami these shareholders the electors of a great province,
should and will bold them responsible
for their actions. The minister of
lands, in mot ing this hill, travelled a
long way. He travelled Into ancient
history, made an exhaustive Inquiry'
into old conditions; and applied
them as he thought they applied to
ibis hill. He travelled a long way
and delivered, as 1 think, a very excellent stump speech. With your
permission. Mr. Speaker, 1 intend to
follow him a considerable way Along
the trail he has blazed through bis
Forestry Act. He proclaims thai
the Umber policy stopped laml aid to
railways, ami I have no douhl he
thinks in making such a statement
thai he is appealing to the people
ot the province and asking them to
lake note thai this is a move which
the Conservative government. has
taken, and lhal to the Conservative
government all credit should i«* git-
en. Welt, sir, he is cotfUod to whatever credit lu* is able to get from
this particular statement, but 1
would remind him that in 1900 the
very point he claims tvas the policy
of the Liberals oh the lloor of
this house, and that in 1002 many
Conservative members now here, and
one minlstei now on tlu* treasury
benches, favored giving the Canadian
Northern Immense territories of this
province, to the extenl of some ten
million acres. Il was proposed to
give ibe companj $10,000 and 20,000
acres |kt mile. Tho honorable gentleman should have told us thai the
credit id the defeat of that proposal
was due to the Liberals of that
turn- So wc see that relegation to
Ihe scrap-heap nf tlte policy of land
aid to railways was not due to the
Conservatives bul had very active
support from iln- Liberal members of
that time.
"Then again, the minister makes
the statement thai the experience of
modem times is that forests are taest
cut under public ownership. It
stems strange to me , and 1 think
it will seem strange to others, that
tlie honorable gentleman at the bead
of the lauds department should make
lhal statement! especially when the
government of which be is a member
seems to have thought so differently,
for be will lind if he looks hack
that under this administration there
has been tlie greatest amount of
timber alienated from tbe crown
tbat has ever taken place in the
same length of time probably in
tbe world, and certainly in Canada.
We iiml that the Immense territory
of between 11,000,000 and 12,-
000,000 acres, as a matter of fact,
bas been taken up, alienated from the
crown under this government, The
very best thai can he said is thai the
government may claim a nominal ownership over ibis vast area. So, as
an answer to lhe honorable gentleman's statement, we have the very
I acts of tlie government of which he Is
n member to prove that this is not
their policy.

Here ls one of the man; cases In whicli

benefited from the household box of Zam-
Buk. Gol-Sgt. Louis Elliott, 3rd Co., ■Kth
Battalion, Peterburo, Out., says: "Tho
lower put of my face, cheek aud chin
broke out In small red p mples, which
liter festered and broke, forming nasty
■orei and dry scabs. The itching sot un
by these eruptions and sores was terrible,
and seemed far worse during the night.
All kinds of soaps, washes and ointments
were tried In the vain attempt to get
relief, even to bathing with carbolic acid
and water. Finally I thought of Zam-Buk
and straightway procured a box at the
drug store. One night's application
brought great relief from the Intense
itching, and aa I kept on applying this balm daily, the Inflammation
waa soon drawn ont, and in leu than a week's time the sores were
thoroughly healed and every scab banished."
Mrs. Elliott, 139 Shubrooke St., Feterboro, telling of ZamBnk'a
effoc t on her younger ion Walter, says •■" He slipped and caused a wound
on his right kip, which developed Into a running sore. From this
smaller sores spread until his lower limbs were covered with ulcers.
These proved very aJa—nim and I feared blood-poisoning I I began tho
Zam-Buk treatment, and It really seemed to aid like magic I In a
remarkably ahort apace of time the raw running sores were all healed,
I am very grateful indeed for Ilia cure, and I strongly recommend all
mothers to keep Zam-Buk always handy."

Meanwhile (May IKltl-Sovember
1850), what is commonly regarded as
Dickens' masterpiece of narrative fiction, "David Copperfield," appeared.
Dickens himself thought more highly
of the novel than of any of the others, and looked upon it with much
affection. The reason for both the
popular and the author's judgment
probably lies in the autobiographical
character of tlie hook. Tbat is to
say, Dickens here speaks more profoundly from his own experience,
tells with more closeness and reality
the taJ.e of his early days, and introduced a large number of those inimitable characters, which, however
comic ami retouched, are founded on
observation   of   actual life.

CHARLES DICKENS
(Continued from page six),
garded    as-   approximating    bis high
plnce,    have   been    so much beloved.
Dickens'     maimer of expression    has
bad a wide  effect on    popular style,,
ami many of his   sentiments, as well
as a whole -galaxy of character**}, have
become common    property.    Foreign
writers, like   Hamlet, have to    somo
•degree, imitated bis style.     Furthermore, few     writers havo bad so long
continued     a vogue,      Single novels,
like "Undo Tom's Oabin," may   have
surpassed any of Dickens' works, ami
(several contemporary novels biive had
marvellous success, but witli tbe    except inn ut   Seott, there is in English
fiction HO instance of such widespread
and lasting popularity fot sn long    a
succession of iHivcts.        Of late years
th;*!!' has Ini'ii some    critical disparagement of   Dickens as an artist, mil
it Is doubtful   if this bus in nny way
it lice led his popular vogue or lesseiit'd
tbe solid esteem   tlmt people (Ml for
llllll.
The    reasons   for bis great  success
ami Hie Juki estimation In which     In1
is belli are usually accounted to     be
tbo   marvellous vitality and ivsourc
luiitess of bis characterizations,    the
copious   ami     tup id, though lengthy,
movement uf   bis narrative, and     the
unfailing   spring of    bis humor,   His
power of    seeing rfleets in situations
and huiui rs in    character ami ol depicting    them      with a   few   salient
strokes, have probably been tho cause
of bis   adding more figures to      the
common store of characters than any
writer since   Slmkespere.     Most    of
tliese   figures,   it has been frequently
observed, are taken from thc    lowerj
strata of society;    witli the so-called
higher   classes   he is uniformly    less
successful,   and     iu   some   Instances
wholly   u neon vi ueing.        His natural
habit of mind ami his training as    a
reporter early gave him    thc faculty
of taking   in a large number    of details at a   glance,     ami bis boyhood
experience and   bis active life in London bad furnished bim with an abundance of material.     The subtler    effects t f    a more   refined or intellectual society were foreign      to      his
early impressions     ami   were beyond
tin-   scope   of his swift,    definite delineation.   In this respect lie will fall
short ot Fielding,   Scott and Thackeray as an   analyst of various human
life, but outside   of these three writers it is doubtful if any Knglish novelists have   so great a rahge of characterization.       Certainly no  Knglish
novelist has   depicted a greater number of characters.       His performance
remains, iu spite of attempts to disparage his genius, one of the      most
vigorous and lasting in Knglish literature.

The latest excuse nflcie-d for tbe non-

Ibo unlOM it shows a belter disposition lo play fair.
Me.inwbil.- the real situation in
Sniitn Renfrew is shown by tbe last
issue of The Renfrew -lonrnal, the
Conservative paper iu (he riding, lhe
Journal does not mum* its language
in its condemnation ot the course of

Dr. Malonev, the Conservative candl-
dale, in delinance ot the now famous)
agreement. It is especially caustic
nl the expense of Htm. ,1. D. Reid,
minister ol customs, saying in thc
report ol the minister's speech nt
tlio Conservative convention on Friday week:
"Dr. Iteid closed his remarks with
some cheap claptrap about there
lieing no family quarrel in the Conservative ranks in South Renlrcw,
nml suggested that if tho party followed Ms advice thc quarrel would
lie  In  lhe Liberal ranks."
Again, hi regnrd to Dr. Ileitis

turned   his attention    to the    good
roads movenent    advecated by     the
Conservative   government at Ottawa,
ant)   the bald  way that  he    handled
this topic disgusted   all decent    men
who   look for something higher    than
this  kind    of talk Irom a      cabinet;

(*f Dr.   Keid's speech    was to tho effect   tliat South Renfrew should vote.
for  Dr. Malonev and the Borden gov-!
ctnment   would   then spend money
this district for good   roads.   It was
put   as openly    us   that, and       was
throughout the sort  of low,  mercenary    appeal        that     Conservatives
fought against as disgraceful in     the
case  of  men like    Pugsley. The latter, however,   usually Imtl the   grace
to respect   his   audience enough      lo
put    a      polish       on   the       wltolesille
bribe."
And again. "Tbe decent, people of
South Renfrew will decide In stand
behind Mr* men of their own riding
rather than follow lhe dictation of
three nr four men from North
Renfrew, with a twetve-yoar-oUl
grudge to satisfy, and a meddling
minister rrom Ottawa, whose, stand
aid of political ethics hardly reaches
to thai generally -held by decent
people in South Renfrew."
Editorially, The Renfrew Journal is
most outspoken. After asserting
Ihati the honorable Conservatives
will stand in honor hy the agreement, ami again reviewing tlie situation arising out of tlm agreement
ami the breach thereof, The Journal
says: "Because of these tilings—
things that belittle and disgrace a
great party—and because of tho low
piano of appeal adopted in Renfrew
by the visiting cabinet minister, and
because Uie people of South Renfrew
are quite capable of attending tt
their own aflalrs, The Renfrew Jour
ii,il would liko Io -see Rt. Hon. R
Borden, not only as premier of
Canada, but also as leader of tin
honored Conservative party, show ii
no uncertain way that In and his
cabinet will not connect, themselves
in this affair, that savors of breach
of honor and tlie flouting of political
decency."
Tlie Journal says that as it in the
past fought consistently in the Conservative interests against machine
polities under Liberal manipulation,
so it will now strenuously oppose
tin* machine politics of Hon. Dr.
Rrid. "There is," It says, "an element that, desires an election, not
because of this candidate or that,
but because of thc money tbat inevitably seems to come their way
during an election contest in South
Renfrew. If this element believed
that North Renfrew would send no
funds for » Mil, and that tbe
government at Ottawa would give
no support of a financial kind, the cry
for an election in these quarters
would soon lessen to less Ihan a
whisper. Dr. Malonev would have
been able to see, perhaps with more
clearness of vision, it men from
Ottawa and outsiders had not held
out tbo hope of that embracing word
'support' to incite and cheer the
eonvention proceedings in Renfrew
were deliberately garbled hy the
tin* reports of the Conservative
convention proceeding! in Renfrew
were deliberately garbled by tin'
Coiworntlve press. It says: "Everj
Conservative daily newspaper In Ontario seems to Imve received a
garbled am) misleading report
what occurred here on Friday, ami
tin* similarity of these reports sin*.
gests tlieii origin. Cooservotiv*,
newspapers refused accurate and un
