new comers are from Great Britain, the others being from the
different countries of Europe.
The settlers are of the best type
of immigrant, and bring with
them quantities of furniture and
personal effects. The trains com
ing into tbe city are crowded to
the extent of being uncomfortable, but the authorities state
that the trip from the east was
made with little incident. Thirty
special trains were required to
bring the immigrants from Montreal. Most of those arrived today will proceed to the wester 1
provinces to settle on farms,
British Columbia is said to be the
objective point of a great number
who have been informed of the
almost British climate which pre

been driven from their homes by

coast.

B. O.'s Day Come.
Victoria. Mar. 29. Speaking
of the results of the election Premier McBride said:
"The government will more
than ever realize its responsibilities to the people of the province.
The victory which the Conservative party has achieved is a victory for the future of the province, for the government will go
on with those larger issues that
are now but dimly dreamt of in
regard to development and general prosperity. In the past we
have labored with many handicaps. We have so far been enor
mously successful. That we will
as a government continue to
measure up to general expectations is my firm hope, in view of
the magnificent attitude of the
people as shown at the polls. From
now on British Columbia will
forge ahead as she has
never done boforo. Faith in the
country's potentialities has been
splendidly vindicated and with
that great warrant to back us,
die government of the province
hopes to inspire the same confidence in the investing world that
the people themselves have so
plainly exhibited."

A LETTER FROM THE DE'IL.
The following: letter arrived at

be that even the Devil is a pow-

THE CANADIAN COLLIERIES, LTD., TO
SPEND $2,000,0000 IN CUMBERLAND
By December 1st a Railroad from a Point  to
the north of Trent Eiveron the Main line
to No. 8 Shaft to be in Operation.
COAL FROM NEW SHAFT EARLY IN NEW YEAR
New   1 OOO Foot  Shaft find other Improvements.—
All Steam Equipment to be Discarded and
Replaced by Electricity Entirely.
It is doubtful if there is nny place in British Columbia,
nnd certainly there is none on Vancouver Island, outside of
Victoria and Vancouver where such an immense sum of money
is to be expended in development work as in and immediately
adjacent to Cumberland during this year 1912. In the city
itself there are U> be expended some 125,000 in municipal improvements. Without doubt a considerable sum will be required for the proposed government wharf at Roy's Beach.
Then, it is very probable that this year will see the C.N.It.
from Fort Alberni in to Cumberland. A large force of engineers
are at work and apparently this work is being pushed.
Practically all winter the Canadian Collieries, Ltd., have
been prosecuting work in boring for coal, the preliminaries in
the opening of a new 1,000 Coot shaft, locally known as No. 8.
The company now have matters in such shape that they have
definitely announced the expenditure of two millions ot dollars
between now and December 1st, All this zone of development
is adjoining and tributary to the the city of Cumberland. It
is hard to guage the importance of the expenditure of all this
money upon the growth of the town. It means that at least
750 more men will be added to the working force in the mining
oi the coal. It will mean a large floating population in the
construction of Llie railroad from Trent river to No. 8 Shaft,
Representatives of Mr. Clarence Hoard, who has the contract
for the building of this branch, were in Cumberland last week
arranging for the installing of camps and the beginning of
work. It is announced by the company that this road will be
completed by December 1st, and that coal from the new shaft
will be delivered at Union Bay early in the new year of 1913.
The expenditure of all this money in our midst can but
attract homseekers and other outside capital to our section.
We may look to see, within the near future, all this good
agricultural land surrounding us, and now lying idle and unproductive, fully settled upon and brought into cultivation.

A DANGEROUS JOB
WHAT is the most hazardous job in
Canada? A rather interesting
question. Mining lias Its dangers, railroad accidents are numerous
every year, but neither of theso occupations are attended with so much peril as
lumbering, according to the view of a
British Columbia newspaper. Tho British Columbia mnn wlm has doue thc investigating says that more lumberjacks
are killed every year in bis province
than men in nny of the so-called "extra-hazardous trades." This fact is not
generally known because obituaries of
these victims anpear but seldom in the
newspapers. News from the logging
camps buried in the bush does not filter
out regularly. When a big tree knocks
a mnn out, there is no reporter ou the
scene; sometimes it is weeks before
word uf the accident is received.
A CINDER IN THE EYE
PASSENGERS who put their heads
out of a railway-carriage window
often get a cinder in tlio eye. It
is both painful und dangerous. The foi
lowing hints should be kept in mind
when one experiences this common mis*
hap.
Nine persons out of every ten with n
cinder or any foreign substance in tne
eye will instantly begin to rub it with
enc hand while hunting for n hand
kerchief with the other. This is all
wrong. The right way is not to rub
the eye with the cinder iu it, but to
rub the other as vigorously ns you like.
"A few months ago," says a railway
engineer, "I was riding on the engine
•f a fast express. The driver threw
open the front window of the cab, and
I caught a cinder in my eye, whicli
guve me intense pain. I began to rut
the eye desperately, when tlie driver
sailed to me: 'Let that eye alone and
rab the other one.' Thinking he was
chaffing mc, I only rubbed thc harder.
'The doctors think thoy know every
thing, but they don't; and if you will
let that eye alone and work on the
ether one you will soon have the cinder out,' shouted the engine-driver. I
did as he directed and soon felt the cinder drawn near the inner corner of the
eye, and made ready to take it out. 'Let
it alone and keep at thc well eye,'
again shouted the driver. T did so for
n minute longer, and then, looking into
u small glass the engineer handed me, I
saw the offender on my cheek. [ have
tried it runny times since, always with
sucaoss."
HIGH HORSES
HOUSES have crept up three or four
times in value during the last
ten years; even the ranchers are
rebelling. This was quite strikingly
fllustrnted not long ago, Messrs. Ryan
and Fares, Winnipeg, and Mr. E. P.
Bay, Medicine Hat, wanted to build
tanks and reservoirs on their properties.
Horseflesh, they concluded, was too dear
to waste on this kind of work. How
was construct ion to proceed? Thou
same a happy idea. The ranchers quietly disappeared. After a few weeks'
absence they came back to Portal with
228 cow ponies and 146 mules. There
was silent envy among other cattle
men who can't pay the long prices for
horses. Tlii' presence of the new steeds
was explained. They had been roped
hi off the Mexican plains. Despite the
heavy duty, the ponies uud mules nre a
cheaper Investment than horses. There
is work in (hem, too, The eow ponies,
who have been trained to bull fighting,
are expected to pick up the tricks of
Wie roundup with ease. Their board
bill won't cost much; they live till forty
and over, munching only the tough
prairie grass..

THE town council of a small Gorman
community met to iuspect a new
Bite for a hall. They assembled
at a chapel, and as it was a warm day
a member suggested that they should
leave tlieir coats there. "Some one
can stay behind aud watch them," suggested another. "What for?" demanded a third. "If we arc all going out
together, what need is thero for liny
one to watch tho clothes?"
CHARLES SUMNER, when in London, gave a ready reply. At a
dinner given in his honor be spoke
of "tho ashes" of somo doad hero.
"Ashesl What American English!"
rudely broke in an Englishman; "dust
vou menu, Mr. Sumner. We don't bum
our dead in this country." "Yet,"
instantly replied Mr. Sumner, with a
courteous smile, "your poet Gray tells
us that 'Even in our ashes live their
wonted fires.' " The American was uot
criticized again that evening.
• •    »
HE had run up a small bill at the
village store, nnd went to pay
it, first asking for a receipt. The
proprietor grumbled and complained
that it was too small to give a receipt
for. It would do just as well, he said,
to cross the account off, and so drew
a diagonal pencil line across the book,
"Does that settle it?" asked the cus
tomor. "Sure." "An' ye'11 niver be
nskin' for it agin?" "Certainly not."
"Faith, thin," said tho other coolly
"an' I'll kape me money in me
pocket." "But I can rub that out,"
said the storekeeper. "I thought so,
said the customer dryly. "Maybe you'll
bo givin' me a receipt now. Here's
your money."
THIS is a jury-room secret that has
como into circulation :n some mysterious way: "Look bore," said
one of tlie jurymen, after they had retired, "if 1 'understand aright, the
plaintiff doesn't ask damages for any
blighted affections or anything of thnt
sort, but only wants to got back what
lie's spent on presents, pleasure trips,
and so forth." "That is so," agreed-
tbe foreman. "Woll, then, I vote wc
don't give him a penny," said the
othor hastily. "If all tho fun he had
with that girl didn't cover the amount
ho expended, it must be his own fault.
Gentlemen, I courted that girl once myself."

AT a recent English election two
laboring men were discussing politics (and four-ale) iu tho publie
bar of the Red Lion. Jones was a true*
blue Tory, while Smith was a Radical
of the deepest dye. The argument was
fierce. "Ah, well," remarked Jones,
at length, "ye can't get away from the
fact that Mr. Robinson's a pufflck genel-
inan. A reel torf, 'o is. Only the other
day 'e sent me a rabbit for my dinner."
"Oh, 'e did, did 'of" snapped Smith.
"Well, that's wot we calls bribery."
Jones began to get alarmed. "Well,
tlie rabbit was a trifle 'igb," he replied,
deprceatingly. "Wuss still," thundered Smith; "\vnss still. That's bribery
and corruption."
WTIE1V tho timo came for the re-
nomination of a member of a
Southern legislature, the member sauntered down to the corner store
one night to sound ont the opinion of
his townsmen as to whether iie should
be sent back to the capital of his State

TO a place ot entertainment had resorted a gracious and gaudy youth,
gotten up regardless "and resplendent in goodly apparel. Enamored was
he of tho singers in tho opera, and he
had brought with him a bouquet. The
lady appeared upon the stago to sing
her principal air, aud with foverish
eagerness he handed his floral tributo to
uu usher, and adjured him tu pass it
over tho footlights as soon as the song
was ended. But whon tho air was doue
the admirer of embodied art saw the
singer retire without his bouquet, and
directly afterward tho usher was perceived lugging the trophy up tho uisle
again. "Vou seo," said tho usher, on
reaching tho surprised youth, "I really
didn't have the faco to hand up your
flowers for that sort of singing. Why,
she blurred her staccato passages frightfully, and her crescendo near tho finale
broke right in two in the middle. And
her trills! Great Scot! Yuu yourself
couldn't havo failed to notice that sho
made a complete slump of thorn. I
can't encourage that kind of work oven
while acting aa somebody else's deputy," and he Hhovod the bouquet into
the young man's arms and disappeared
into'the lobby.

Then ho will rush down here, unsuspecting, to find the crowd of friends waiting

It weut off exuetly as planned. Wes-

held their breath whilo Mrs. Wester
Leigh called out excitedly, "Oh, Frank,

Evory light hnd beeu turned out, and
the parlor was in perfect darkness.
There was a rapid rush of feet down the
stairway, then a voice suid, "I don't
smell any gas.''
"Better light tho jet," Mrs. Wcstcr-
leigh suggested tremulously.
Thero was a sputter, and suddenly the
room was flooded with light. Everybody
screamed.    The hostess fainted.
For there in the centre of the room
stood Westerleigh, attired only in n natty union suit, with a fresh pair of

With the Horses
DO  AMERICAN HORSES LACK
STAMINA?
THE poor performance of the American colt, Sir Martin, in the Gold
Cup at Ascot, where he finished nowhere, has again drawn the attention of
the English critics to the quality of
American horses, nnH the verdict is that
Yankee racers have great speed but
can't stay. Sir Martin's rating last
year was a most peculiar one. Jn the
Derby he fell just before reaching Tottenham Corner, and not only put himself
out of the running, but it has been
thought ever since that he actually prevented William the Fourth from winning.
How much there is in tlie theory cannot now be determined, but it is a fact
that William the Fourth was interfered
with by Sir Martin and yet he finished
in tiiird place only half a length away
from Minoru, the winner. The subsequent running of St. Martin as a threo-
year-old gavo ground for a calculation
that he should have beaten everything
in tho Derby except Bayardo. ln Inst
year's Cambridgeshire Sir Martin ran a
une race when having the worst of the
weight by long odds. He was third to
Christmas Daisy and Mustapha. As the
raco came off in very heavy ground it
was probably not to his liking or he
might have done better.
The day following, when tho ground
bad dried up and was much better for
going, the American colt put up a recuid
performance in the Durham Handicap.
Ile won with the top weight, but was
not seen in publie again until he won
the Coronation Cup at Epsom. This
event was over the mile und a half
course, and Sir Martin put up a capital
performance.
Sir Martin's victory sent his stock up
greatly for tlio Gold Cup, especially as
Bayard0 had only given a very moderate display on his first outing this season. The horses had uever met since the
Lerby last year and there was great
curiosity to see them measure strides
after a twelvemonth had elapsed. Bo-
fore the horses went to tho post Uayardo was the favorite, principally on account of his splendid appearance when
he was stripped in the paddock. His
figure weis 7 to 4, while Sir Martin was
Q to 2. W. K, Vanderbilt's live-year-
old, Seasick II., started at (I to 1.
Tho race was ono of the best over
seen for the Gold Cup, the unusual number of thirteen horses going to the post.
The race is two and a half miles, nnd
for the first mile and a half Sir .Martin
was with the front brigade, Uayardo,
ridden by Danny Maher, bringing up
the rear. Coming out of the Swinley
Bottom, which is about six furlongs
from tlie finish, Sir Martin began lo die
tiway, while Bayardo shot from last
place into the lead. This change of
position happened in about 200 yards,
nnd is said to be tho most wonderful
piece of running ever seen on a raco
course. Bayardo finished with his ears
pricked, one of the easiest Gold Cup
winners on record. Tbo dope was that
he could give Sir Martin twenty pounds
and a beating over tho two and a half
mile course.
Commenting unon the quality of American horses, "Vigilant," says:
"It is remarkablo, however, that
horses bred in America have generally
been distinguished for speed rather than
stamina, though there have boon notublo
exceptions. Tho late R. Ten Broeek had
a string of horses over here many years
ago, among which wero included some
good stayers, anil although Prior, who
was reputed the best of tho lot, did not
realize expectations iu England, tho reu-
sou was uot far to seek, as ho never bo-
camo properly acclimatized, and after
several ineffectual efforts he died. Prioress, in tho same interest, wus more sue
cessful, and there are people still living
who remember a sensational Cosaro-
witch which she won iu 1857 after having run a dead heat with El Hakim and
Queen Bess. She won various othor
races over long distances, but was tho
recipient of a terrible dressing >vhe:i she
threw down Ihe gauntlet to Mr. Merry's
Special License fur the Whip over tbo
Beacon Course, of upward of four miles,
al Newmarket.
Another American that had a great
reputation ubout that period was Umpire, aud it mny be doubted if ever one
carried as much money ns ho for tho
Derby and again for tho Cesarewitch,
his trials having been phenomenal, He
showed tn little advantage in either
race, and metaphorically speaking Mr.
Merry's Tliormauby made him lie down
when they joined issue for the Claret
Stakes ut Newmarket. In fact, tho best
thing he ever accomplished was over a
much shinier course, to wit, the City
and Suburban mile and a quarter, when
he achieved a great performance by running second to Adventurer. Starke's
advent to this country was not preceded
by any great flourish of trumpets, but.
nevertheless, he wns one of the gamest
and best horses that ever came from the
land of Stars and Stripes, and among
his triumphs were included thc Goodwood Cup, in which he beat Thormanby,
Tho Wizard, and other good horses, of
which thc first named hud won the Ascot Gold Cup aud the second the Two
Thousand Guineas. He was afterward
sold to the Prussian Government and
sired a great number of chargers.
"A horse that came from the far side
of the Atlantic with a very tall rcpu
tiou was Preakness, who was said to
have beeu cue of the best horses ovct
reared in America. He, however, was
too far advanced in age to distinguish
himself hore, and Mr. Sandfnrd sold
him to the late Duke of Kara il ton, for
whom lie sired a useful horse in Tho
Fiddler, who finished third for tho Co
sarewitch to Foxhall, in my opinion the
best horso that ever came from the
United States. That victory of itself
was a great performance, but nothing
compared with what he did a fortnight
later whon as a three-year-old carrying
nine stone ho won the Cambridgeshire
and beat one of the best class fields that
ever assembled for that event. Mean
while ho had vindicated his claims to
classic consideration by winning the
Grand Prix of Paris, and in the following year set the seal on liis fame by
winning the Ascot Gold Cup. Here,
perhaps, he was n little lucky, as but
for ca.-.mg his horse, who was ostensibly
making running for Petronel, Teddy
Martin would never have been caughi
ou Faugh a Ballagh, aad thus the late
Duke of Beaufort wns robbed of liis
coveted trophy bv a head.
"That severe race probably got to
tho bottom of Foxhall, for uot only was
he woll beaten in the Alexnndra Plate
on thc following day, but never afterward ran up tu his form, and, moreover,
was a failure at the stud. Tt should
have been mentioned that although foaled in America he camo over as a yearling and was always trained hore. A
brilliant horse was Mr. Lorillard's Iroquois. but,p although he wen the Derby
and the St. Leger, I doubt if he was a
genuiue stayer, nnd a similar remark
applies iu the ease of the snne owner's
Parole, in spite of his having won the
Epsom Spring double of City and Suburban and Great Metropolitan, I had almost omitted to mention ns a good stayer Mr. Ten Broeek's Optimist, who won
the Ascot Stake*, nnd another that was
well endowed with stamina but not in
quite the first class was Blue Grass, who
took the Northumberland Plate, as also
tho Alexnndra Plato at Ascot. Wallon-
stein, who won the Manchester Cup for
Lord EUosraero, was above the avorago,
though, perhaps, not a glutton for dis-
tnnee, und others thnt may bo includod
in the same category may bo mentioned
in Disguise 11., who won tho Jockey
Club Stakes, and Cap nnd Bells, who
captured the Onks, both trained by Sam
Darling for Mr. Keene."
Soven milos of nnglers competed for
the Bolton and Mid-Lancnshiro championships at Galgnto, England, rocontly.

DAME FASHION'S
DECREES
THK present Style of dress makes it possible, indeed obligatory, to have un nnusnnl number of outside garments
or separate wraps, and not only is there a jacket for
the simple street costume, but also afternoon and evening
(Wraps galore. Discussed nnd rodiscusscd is the question of
the length of the coat. Shall it bo long or short, tight or
loose, simple or elaborate? And alasl no definite conclusion
is arrived at, so that after ordering a long, loose coat it is
to aay tlie least disconcerting to ho told that tho short and
much more tightly fitting jaeket is far tho smartest of all.
Then* being uo rtite commanding all gowns made alike, it is
perhaps a wise plan to have tlie dilferont styles for tlie different costume*, but there are many women who prefer to keep
tbat look like Teddy bears, soft, wide wale serge, all sorts of
cheviots and rough cloths and the white blanket coats—
these are all to be found ready made, and tho private tailors
have never had so many orders as this season. Black aud
white plaids, uot small checks, trimmed with black satin
facings aud gilt buttons, are smart, but the moro conservative taste selects the light tan vicuna cloth without nny
trimming. Even raincoats are made becoming, and, while
light enough in weight to wear over un inside coat, havo
Suflicient warmth to be worn over a light gown, The Rose-
bery cloth and ull the cravenetted materials are really waterproof ami yet can be made both becoming and smart for
the purpose fur which they are manufactured—as a protection
from wind aud weather. *
t'loth flunks are not for the moment so smart as the satin,
but a cheap, good quality uf .siitiii is not tu bo compared with
a cloth of the same price, so for the woman who must count
pennies must the warning be given to buy cnredfutly. All
tho leading shops display a remarkable assortment of satin
cloaks and there are always to bo discovered some bargains
among them, but a striking color and good lines hide serious
defects und money is often literally thrown away in the purchase of an effective satin cape that after being worn two
or three times will look hopelessly shabby.
• •    *
A butter-color lace frill with a cluster of forgctme nots iu
the centre makes a pretty slipper rosette and another dainty
novelty for tho black satin slipper is a butterfly of wired
black lace with the wings embroidered iu gold dots. Tulle
rosettes with tl rhinestone button or a tiny buckle in the
centre are also attractive.
To change tho trimmings un the slippers cut an oval piece
of buckram .ibout two inches across and at the under side nf
each end sew a hook. To correspond tu tho hooks on the buckram make littlo blnck silk eyelets on the vamp. The rosette
or butterfly may be securely hooked on.
# »    *
The question of what to wear under tne exaggeratedly
scant skirt of the present fashions must he carefully considered iu making the summer outfit. Por sume time the drop
skirt, us is termed the silk underskirt fastened to tho belt
uf the gown, has been eliminated and the silk petticoat has
beeu doomed suflicient. Silk petticoats are thought by some
over zealous followers of fashion to be unnecessary, aud certainly the all too tight skirt permits of no additional fulness,
but it is noted that in the latest of importations the sorgo or
loth skirts are lined with silk, as was fashionable sume years
ago, the lining nol separate but made, with the material."
Another style has a lining fitted into the skirt half way
and then finished with a deep double flounce of chiffon, This
makes possible the tightest of skirls aud at the same time
is vastly more becoming, for, thin and light as is chiffon, it
prevents the skirt from falling in around tho ankles in too
ixflggeroted a fashion. Another point to be noticed in the
newest gowns is that, while apparently exaggeratedly scant,
there is more material used and double box pleats fastened
far down give width and a (hire that is far more becoming.
Satin Wrap with Oold Embroidery

variety, and they make objections to this somewhat involved
state of affairs. Ou the other nund, the woman who delights
in always being iu most up-to-date gowns enjoys (lie contrasts
Hhe is able to obtain by being one day gowned iu one style
and another day in another.
The long, all enveloping cloaks uml mantles, for the old
fashioned word mantle is once ogniii heard in the land, are
most graceful and generally becoming. The lines are the
Name whether tin' garment is intended tor afternoon or
evening near, but (lie ev'Oding wraps are wider and longer.
It requires a good figure and a knowledge of how to stand
well to wear some of the most voluminous of these Wraps,
but so becoming nre they when correctly worn that it seems
strange that every woman in the world docs nut at once go
into training lo make the wearing of them possible. There
is no hard and fast rule as to what material shall be choseu,
Satin—Liberty sutdu—is fashionable, but soft finish cloth or
silk, chiffon, net and lace, one and ull a re/in style, so that
there is prnetii-nlly unlimited choice iu material as welt as
color.
•   •   •
It seems strangely paradoxical that, iu these days of exay
geratediy scant skirts and with every efl'ort made to look
as slight as possilde, tliis fashion of wide, full cloaks should
have gained ground. It muy be in anticipation of the full,
wide skirts that are predicted for next Benson, but it is certainly not according to thc usual order of events, and ran
only be explained by the tueury that Dame Fashion is deter*
mined the conspicuous uud incongruous shall be accepted by
her followers. Could there bo anything more incongruous
than one of the newest, the really, truly newest of models for
aa evening wrap or mantle, made of uuliuod pleated chilfou
in the most fascinating shade of brown and trimmed with u
deep bund of sable/ Fur in summer always seems like an
attempt to be original and a wish to lie conspicuous, but it
should be remembered that fashions are uot designed just for
one country only, where in winter the heaviest of outer garments are worn and iu summer the lightest possible, but for
a climate that permits of the wearing of fur all the year, so
that chiffon aud fur combined are uot so incongruous, Marabout ami ostrich feathers are even newer as irimming for
chiffon cloaks und are in great demand.
Much attention is paid to the fit over the shoulders of
all mantles, and it is the modiste's task to so arrange thnt
across the shoulders the garment shall lit tu perfection ami
then below the shoulders fall louse ami wide, measuring yards
in circumference. An effective and popular trimming that
helps to emphasize good lines is velvet, ribbon, preferably
Mack. There is no fixed rule as to the quantity to be used,
but it should be remembered that the lines must be kept long,
otherwise a thick, clumsy look will be given that will quite
spoil the most graceful cloak ever designed. AM colofs ate
fashionable for Ihese mantles, and black lined with color is
most popular, White, strange lo say, is least iu favor, although there are same most attractive mantles in white, lined
with a pale shade, that will look charming with white or light
colored chiffon or satin evening gowns.
The ovontirg wraps of sutiit are utmost Identically the same
as the others, onlv if intended wholly for evening they can
bo more elaborately trimmed. Oold ami silver braiding'looks
decidedly incongruous with any wrap worn iu the daytime.
A most effective and becoming evening wrap thnt has graceful lines is in deep crimson satin, with an embroidered de
sign in gold cutt-iug the entire cloajt. The same pattern can
be taken as a foundation, with the embroidery only around
the top ami down the fronts, and if economy has to be faced
then the embroidery only around the neck is suflicient, aud
big tassels or a flat ornament will finish off the embroidery
When the cloak is fastened. A delightfully luxurious touch
is to be noticed in the costly wraps. Ovor the satin lining is
u lining of rhtffnn. This is not new this season, but has gained in favor with the craze that is so widespread for veiled
effects. It is conteaded that the garment is much more easily
put on and taken off when there is this chiffon lining, but as
there are nn sleeves, nnd, as has been said, the wirier and
looser the cloak the more in style it is, this point cau hardly
be used in its defence. Rut it is one of those subtle and
fascinating fads that nre so dear to the heart of a woman,
and which give her the serene consciousness and consequent
poise that only the knowledge of being perfectly turned out
can ever bestow.
The wonderful advance iu dress is shown in the simpler
styles more than in anything else. The loose motor coat, light
or heavy, is a wonderful garment, while the so-called traveling or tourist coat is no longer ugly, shapeless and aggressively unbecoming, but is often one of the most becoming articles of clothing. To be warm and light is demanded of the
travelling coat, and the materials uow provided for the purpose certainly fulfil those requirements. Vienna cloth, coats

Concerning Maeterlinck and the tobacco habit a recent

If he has not overcome the need he has outflanked it. Smoking, he noticed, had lost its virtue as a stimulant, aud instead

THE MIRACLE OF DIGESTION
WHEN   one  stops  to  think   of  it,
there is nothing more marvelous
in the world than the process of
digestion.   H   is  taking place   all tho
time, too—right inside of us!
We eat certain food-stuffs, and they
form a living human body—flesh, bones,
muscles, nerveB, organs. And all of these
nerves, muscles and organs are capable
of living, moving aud acting upon food
Look, for instance, at that chicken 1
It walks about, picking up seeds and
grains aad worms and what not; and all
this is transformed into eye and comb,
bonk and feathers of multiple shades!
The fish that swims iu the sou lives on
its varied food, ami, in this ease, it is
transformed into scales aud fins and
glassy eyes, which give ono the creeps
to look at it! Ves, it is all very wonderful.
Oue fact of practical importance
must be borne iu mind here. It has
been said that "digestion begins in
the mouth aud ends in the lungs." The
meaning of this is as follows: After the
food has passed into the stomach, ami
is acted upon by its appropriate digestive juices, and after it has passed on
into the intestine, nud is acted upon by
the juices there, it is absorbed into the
blood streum, and carried to the lungs
there tn be mixed with uir.
The oxygen of the air combines with
the particles of food, and renders them
capable of being used by the system.
Until this process has' been * gone
through the food cannot be used by the
body. No mutter how much food we
eat, if it is not mixed with the oxygen
of the air in this fashion the body can
nut use it. (Hence tho great importance
of fresh air after eating).
From this fact we draw the following
important conclusion: That the more
food we eat, the more we should
breathe; and the less food we eat, the
less need we breathe. If the dispropor
tion between the two be great, and be
kept up for months aud years, grave
diseases are bound to follow in consequence,
Until recently it was thought that
digestion wns a comparatively simple
process. The protoids—the muscle
running f Is were, supposedly, quickly acted upon by the gastric juice of
the stomach and absorbed. The fats
and starches went on, and they were acted upon by the various juice's, and ab
sorbed hi turn. It wns all very simple!
Now, however, it is known thut the
process is tar more complex, and that
niauv changes arc passed through be
fore the food i- leally absorbed by the
bo.lv, or ready for forming bo-lily
tissue.
starches cannot be absorbed bv tli
body AS BUCK. They must first be
converted into a sort of sugar or "gin
cose." This cannot be done in an
acid medium; hence t he necessity ot
chewing all such foods very thoroughly
so that they may lie converted in the
mouth by means of tlie saliva. Protolds
are largely dissolved by the acid, gns
trie juice of the stomach. Fats and
starches complete their digestion in
the bowels. The fats are here made
into a sort of soap -an emulsion—nnd
iu that condition they are absorbed by
the blood, carried to the lungs, ami
finally grubbed up by the hungry tissue-
cells to make live bodily matter.
Most of the changes that are undergone in the process of digestion ate
now understood, and it has beeu found
that they are chiefly chemical in char
actor. The changes und reactions are
numerous and marvelous, but they can
be followed, From the moment when
fond is put iu the mouth until it reaches
the bodily cell as nourishment for it
these changes can be followed und in
large pleasure understood. Hut when
this food materia] is converted into
living mattor—whon it forms the body
—no one cun tell what takes place, nor
nave we rho slightest idea of the changes necessitated in bringing this result,
to pass.
The food Bee ins in some way "vitalized ''—ns though endowed with life
from the living cell, and then thnt it
forms part, of it. But the mechnnism
which brings this to pass cannot bo
comprehended. We are face to face
with the problem, "What is life?" We
may, in truth, eali it "The miracle of
digestion."
KINO ALFONSO'S CHIN
rp HE King of Spain, who went to
X Kngland for the funeral of King
I'Mward, is twenty-four. His Majesty, who is original in all things, is
snid to have had a hand in the manufacture of his face! This sounds a
strange statement, but it came about iu
this wny. When he was a very small
boy, he was found one day by his attendants standing in front of Velasquez's famous picture of Philip IV., of
Spain. The young monarch looked long
and earnestly at his ancestor's portrait,
and then snid: "1 will have a chin like
that." From this instant he set himself
the task of moulding his chin with his
hand into the true Bourbon shape with
the result that today his likeness to
Philip is singularly striking. King Al-
phonso hns a great liking for England,
and some years ago, when the outlook
was very black in Barcelona and other
parts of Spain, and he was asked by
a friend what he would do if he ever
found it nceessury to follow Napoleon
111., and other European sovereigns into
exile, he replied, "I should ut, once go
to Kngland and purchase a farm in some
country district, and try to forget there
was such a place as Spain or any land
that was less peaceful than the one in
which I found myself."
WHY BALLOONS ABE YELLOW
They Must Be This Color If They Are
to Be Preserved
THK up-to-date balloon is yellow, according to a writer ia La Nature
(Paris),   not    because   aeronauts
love this color, but  because it  protects
the  balloon   from  disintegration,    Wo
rond;
Tho yellow tint  of all the covers of
modern balloons, dirigible or other who,
has been rcmurl'od upon.   Tl hole.O of
this color has been li-tnie.l not so
much bv Dosthetlc considerations as bv
the fact that it is a capital eon lltlon
of the balloons preservation, l.lout. I
Col. Kspitallier explain* th It- in a i cenl |
number of l.a Technique AoronuiltlqilO. j
The textile fabric tlr.it fl s the enve!
ope of the balloon is covered with a
layer of caoutchouc which insures its
impermeability, but on condition that
the caoutchouc remains unaltered. Now
India-rubber, even when vulcanized, deteriorates rapidly under the action of
violet or ultra-violet rays of the solar
light. It must thus be protected by a
yellow pigment that absorbs the injurious rays.
In Germany, an nnilin dye is considered sullicient; in France, the use of
neutral chroma te of lead is regarded
as necessary, This is easily recognizable from its more brilliant color. The
lead chroma te produces an effect that
lasts longer than that of nnilin colors;
but, ou the otner hand, it must he applied before the last layer of rubber,
and this cannot be vulcanized; this
operation would require the use of heat,
which would destroy thc yellow color
of the chroma to. This inconvenience
is the more serious in that the rubber
deteriorates far more easily when not
vulcanized. The layer concerned, of
ctmr.se, is only the thin one spread over
the external tissue, the cover of the
balloon itself consisting essentially of a
double layer of fabric enclosing an interior one of caoutchouc, which is always carefully vulcanized, Nevertheless, the alteration of the outised layer
has an injurious effect on the whole 'envelope.
In short, our balloons must be yellow; this must be considered as settled;
but we have as yet no really satisfactory yellow pigment, so the aeronauts
are calling loudly for the chemists to
help them.
THE SEA'S VENTILATION
ONE of the reasons formerly urged
against the existence of living
creatures in the abysses of the
ocean was the supposed absence of oxygen fhere. It was deemed impossible
that any considerable quantity of oxygen could exist at great depths. But discoveries of recent date have shown that
them is no lack of oxygon oven at tbe
greatest depths. The explanation is
that the cold water of the polar regions,
cnarged with tho oxygen from the atmosphere, creeps along the bottom toward the equator from both poles and
thus carries a supply nf oxygon over tbe
whole vast floor of the oceans. The
surface water moves toward the poles,
and so a great system o( circulation exists, Were it not for this world circulation, one authority assures us, it is altogether probable that tho ocean would
iu time b mie too foul to sustain animal life, at least in its higher manifestations, and the sea, the mother of life,
would itself be dead.

What the Editor has to say.
The great sympathetic strike of the coal miners in tin'
old country is practically at an end and like all such strikes
was and is a failure. The cost to the la holing class lias been
astounding, both in money and suffering. Upward of a quarter of a million of pounds sterling have been lost by the laboring people, to say nothing of the hunger and anguish brought
t ii  uivt*s and children.    Even had   the  unions  won   nil
ml l lie) fought for, it would have been at a fearful cost.  The
1 .sts to the coal operatives has been slight, merely the. loss of
ui.,- market,,    In other lines ol business, having not the slight
est connection with the coal mining industry, many  men anil
linns have been ruined.
This strike shows what is becoming wore and more fl|i*
|,parent: That the strike as a weapon ill tlie hands of the !"■'
lorer is a dismal failure. It is obsolete, just as much so as
t ie war club and the ancient flintlock. The time must soon
come in the civilized world when the law will place the strike
i the category of criminal conspiracy, as it has already placed
tne boycott.
It is up to Mr. J. II. Hawthornethwaite, late socialist
member of the provincial house, to do a little explaining to his
comerades iu socialism. Iu 1004 or '05 he stepped from a munificent position with pick and shovel on the government road
at $2.50 per day, to the provincial house to fight the battles of
his comrades. He retires from the house with the comfortable sum of$ 125,000 in his jeans. This last year he cleaned up
$65,000 on one land deal. Of course, we can but admire the
brain, the business ability that has enabled Mr. Hawthornethwaite to do this, but we fear lest his comrades in socialism,
at least those who are yet delving with the pick and shovel,
may feel that they are entitled to a share of this "unearned
increment." Or does each in his turn expect to become a
member of the house? Anyway, we can now the better ap
the blow lately dealt to (Jomerade Lefeaux.
It looks as though His Mnlesty were determined to put
the fear of the Lord into the heart ot Cousin Wilhelm, the
Kaiser. Great Brittain is building at Clyde Bank a battle
ship the biggest and fastest ever. She will displace 30,000
tons, make .'(0 knots an hour, fire a projectile weighing 2,000
p muds and deliver a broadside of 8  tons.
Light is breaking. There is now hope that tho laboring
class will make some advance toward the amelioration of their
condition, In the great sypathetic strike in the old country,
thi! miners have rejected the advice and leadership uf tlie socialists, and are carrying on their own campaign from the la-
bur point of view. The miners' union of Blltte, U. S. A hnve
kinked the socialists out, hooting the socialist mayor oil' the
street. The mayor and socialists were urging tlie union not to
renew its contract with the mine operators—deliberately trying to stir up trouble. The union is now treating with the
operators as workingmen and not as politicians The city of
Milwaukee, famous for beer, has turned the socialist government down. When the unions shall refuse to he led by the
nose by the politicians, either socialist or other, there is some
hope for the cause of organized labor.

With the Horses
r
T is the opinion of Gilbert Thoiup-
kius, agent for the Boston Work
Horse Association, that the motor
wagon will never completely tuke the
place of the work horse. This state
ment is sent out by the Boston Association following u thorough investigation
bv Agent Thoiupkins, who gathered his
'information in New York and other
large cities, ns well as iu Boston. Many
dealers in commercial cars and automobiles were interviewed and particular
attention was given to finding out the
real feeling of those who wore using
such cars or had already tried I hem.
The conclusion reached is that the
motor cannot compete with tin1 horse
in the short haul delivery work and
trucking of the -bity; bat in the longdistance service of suburban uud outlying delivery the machines are more
oflicient and economical than horses can
ever be.
One tliinp is clear, and that is that
the increased use of motors is not going to benefit the horse that most needs
to be benefited. Only rich concerns can
afford to substitute motors for horses,
and such concerns usually treat tlieir
horses well. The over-worked,  lei-
fed liorse will still be with ns, nunc
What may, and workhorse parade and
humane societies should not relax their
efforts in his behalf. -Many horses arc
working today thnt should not be allowed to put iu harness; but the supply of
even fairly usable secondhand horses
is far below the demand, ami prices for
all kinds of horses nre very high.
Under normal business conditions,
there seems to be no possibility for
years to come of the supply of horses
•quiilling the legitimate demand. <>w
ing to the capital required and to other
•uitHOH mentioned in this report, the
commercial ears cannot begin to displace enough horses to allow for the
natural Increase in tlieir use. The demand for farm products alone will keep
countless horses in the country that
would otherwise be available for the
low-priced delivery and peddling out
tits of the cities and towns,
The extermination of the horse in
business use has been prophesied at intervals since the first railroad.   It s i
ed rensonflbly near when cable mads
and trolley lines began displacing the
street enr horses. At that periods one
blow after another seemed to fall on
the horse's chances for continued use
fulness. The boom iu trotting slock in
the 'eighties was followed by nn inevitable over-production, on top of which
came the panic of "!.::, Then the bicycle
fad was added to these other eauses of
lowered prices, of which oi f iInmost far-reaching was the alter lack of
any demand for horses for agricultural
(ISO,  for   farm   produce WUS then  selling
below any reasonable cosl of production. In those days horses really were a
drug on the market.
But ns im- country began to prosper
again values slowly crept up. iu spite of
cable .-ins, trolleys, bicycles, the shadow
of  tl utomobile  and   Ihe  threat   of
the commercial car. Ami even with tlie
increasing numbers shown by the Government reports, horses' of'all usable
grades aie higher iu price today nnd
harder to get thnn ever before.

t*he had never experienced the lameness
that has now kept her off the turf for
three successive years.
It will be remembered that it was in
September, 1006, shortly after she had
lowered the unpuced record t'or mures
to -.UU:H, aod the world's record t'or
three heats iu a race by a harness horse
to J.O.'i. 2.03H, and L'.0l!:}i, thut uhe
broke down; this occurrence taking
place at La Salle, 111., whero sho had
been shipped for thu purpose of attacking the world's record over a half-mile
track. The event came very unexpectedly, and uever since that unlueky duy
has she been able to face the starter.
In a short time afterward she was,
to tilt intents and purposes, sound once
more, but in the spring of 1007 she turned up lame before her strong work had
Opened, so she was bred to the pacing
stallion Willie Benton, 2.0B&, and retired.
In 1908 she fouled a tine bay colt by
thut sire, and, appearing sound, wus put
at work in the full and given consider
able training, which she seemed to take
very nicely.
While sue wus brought down us far
in her work as a mile in 8,03, and iu
brushes could show all her old-time
speed, at the same time she also, while
B110 -lid not show a recurrence of hei
former Innieness, began to act "crimpy" that it was thought best to go no
furl her wilh her, but give her oue more
winter's rest and then try her for the
last lliuil time this year.
It now looks as if the wonderful little
Illinois, bred Hying machine might
eventually make good, too. I lean's
hopes for'her are higher than Ihey have
been at any time since she went wrong,
ami he is uow bending his energies to
getting her ready to ship to Winnipeg
for the big meeting there early in July.
The mure has been owned for three
years past by a citizen of the Western
Canada metropolis, K, .1. liochon, but iu
all that time has uever been out of
Bean's bands or across the border. Mr.
Rochoil is now anxious for her appear
uuce in what is her home town—although she has never seen it—and arrangements have been made for her
appearance at the ICxhibitiou ou Citizens' Bay—not in u race, but an exhibition mile, to lower her own, the track
and the world's mile over a half-mile
track. Thus it will be seen that The
Branch comes back in th" racing game
just where she left it, us it was prior lo
this very test that she first went lame.
It was at Cleveland, iu August, 1000,
I hat The Broncho paced her three consecutive heats in 2.113, L'.o:,-/, and 2.03%,
lowering a world's record which Star
Pointer had held for a decade, lu the
three season's which have since passed
ihe little mare's achievement has never
beeu surpassed.
After her appearance in Winnipeg,
duly Bt, The Broncho will be returned
to Dean's stable and prepared to race
iu the Great Western Circuit later on.
CANADA'S INDUSTRIAL FUTURE
EKXKST   CAWCROFT,    writing  in
the Book-Keeper, of Detroit, for
Jui.e,    discusses    the    industrial
future of l.'atiada.    In the course of his
article-—the leading article of tlie m'.g-
ny.ine, by the way—he says:
' 'The Industrial present of the Dominion of Canada is a fact; its Industrial future is assured. Canada has a
larger area than the United Slntosj and
as the population and development of
Canada are now somewhat parallel to
the growth of the United States in the
day:' when Alex-imler Hamilton and llii
iniM-dialo successtrs weie Founding the
fiscal system which has triumphed in
the Fedoralism of Roosevelt ami Taft,
it is iuteresiiug lo contemplate, both iu
its economic aspects ami as a study ir.
historical evolution, the industrial future of the Nation of the North. Today Kngland aud Germany are fighting
for tlie same markets; and iu view of
the fact that the period is approaching
when Canada will be a competitor ot
the United States in the West Indies
and South America, the prospective
growth of Canadian Industrialism is a
pertinent  subject  for consideration.'
"Jc.lferson foresaw the United siales
as a vast agriculaturul empire, but did
not allow t'or the marvels* worked by
the inventor. Stephenson sounded the
death knell of the Jefferson agricultural
empire and paved the way for the Ham*|
iltonian system of pr-oteeted manufacturing cities when ho invented the
steam engine. Why is that an evident
fact? Rer-niise tbe modem railroad is
too costly an Investment, and too ex-
pensive Irom an operative standpoint,
not to enjoy the necessity of what is
known iu railway circles us the "return
haul." In otlier words, no railroad
can afford to carry agricultural products
from the farms to the cities. If it did,
the expense of moving the freight curs
both ways would be absorbed from the
farm products. Thus the necessity of a
"return haul" forces the development
of industrial cities. This is what occurred iu Ihe United Statos between 1880
nnd 1ST.i; this is just what is destined
to occur iu Canada between the present
day nud the middle of the Twentieth
Contury,"
CRIME  IS RARE  IN JAPAN
THK Japanese police havo an uasiei
time than tlieir coufreres in Europe, Crime in the land of the
clirysuntliemum is almost limited lo
theft ami tragedies, or serious cases of
bodily harm resulting from street
brawls. It is next to impossible, the
chief of the Tokio police snys, fur a
murder to be committed without someone hearing of It at the moment, This
Is due to the fact that the houses are
composed of paper ami bamboo, so uny
noise in n house occasioned by robh.-rs
or nssiisins would not fail to attract the
til tent if mi of  neighbors.

DAME FASHION'S
DECREES
OF course, everybody is talking about sleeves. As a mutter of fact, there is such a variety that a wido choice
ia possible. Coat sleeves, especially for tho strictly
tailored models, remain small and full length, only slightly
fiiHod into tho nrm'soye. For tho Moujlk or Russian cos-
time tho slcove is fuller and more varied in cut, but the fulness is rather between the elbow and the wrist than nt the
arm'e-eye, whero tho contour of tho shoulder is preserved.
The strictly tailored sleeve is seldom seen on tho Russian
eonfc tr blouse, for it is not nt nil in keeping.
nnd oven grotesquoly arranged, accentuated by the white
powdored faces nud vivid scarlet lips which tho American
woman now copies from hor Freueh sister. Ia uenrly every
caso, the coitturo is kept small and little, if any, padding
is worn* tho hair wrapping the head and bringing out a clear-
cut contour. If any building is done, it is at the back of tho
head.
Many of the younger women ore wearing folds of satin,
velvet or gold, or silver gauze twisted in tho hnir. Several
young girls, whom I noticed at a vory smart First Night recently, woro folds of satin the samo color as their gowns
wound round tho head closoly, quito covering the hair. A
delicato chain, fashioned out of twisted silver or gold gauze
ribbon, is also a noticeable coiffnro ornament.
As tho coitturo is now a really important part of tho genera) costume, there is apparently no end to the wonderful
cuitVure ornaments worn. -Narrow gold Oreek bands, jeweled
ur ornamented iu high relief gold embroidery, are very smart.
It is likewise modish to carry a chatelaine with an evening
frock, and these are now made to match the headdress ornaments and other jowelry.
Nearly every gowu one sees un those occasions, whether
it be of satin, crepe, or one of the countless supple materials
that are now worn, is draped in some way. Some ure caught
up in tho back with a motif nf lace, or galloon, or metallic
cabochon; others are draped under a tunic of chiffon or othor
transparent fabric, or are caught iu around the feet with a
band of trimming, But all are draped, and it looks as if
tho tunic in its many modifications had also come to stay.
e     *    •
Many gauze Liberty scarfs aro worn to match the gowu
in color, trimmed with marabout. They nre vory wide, and
exquisite in texture .uid sheen.
Every other gown one sees at tho play is of satin, and
thero are many of them veiled with a tunic of chiffon or
fine net. A lovely frock was of black and white striped
satin, covered with narrow silver galloon. Soma of the
tunics nro draped, but ofteuer it is tho undordress thnt is
driiped, while the tunic falls over the shimmering satin in
straight lines, One notices also that many of tho gowns
show the trimming placed on the satin underdross to gleam
through tho tunic.
Embroidered Chiffon and Satin Gown
Pretty sleeves of three-quarter length and even half
length arc noticeable on tho new foulard and pongee frocks,
s« that it is apparent that we are uot to be encased in the
Tory long tight sleeves of lust season. The suppleness of the
now fabrics makes possible many charming effects in shir-
rieigH, cordiugs, tuckiugs aud the like, aud as iu the Kussiun
continues, the fulness is more marked below the elbow. Hut
thero is this difference, thut iu these fabrics there is also a
fulness ut the top of the sleeve, especially where a transparent material is used over a tight-fitting underslecve.
Our Paris correspondent has this to say in a late letter
which comes to hand just as this is being written: "Sleeves
are for tho most part invisibly put into the annliole, und appear as if in one with the bodice, the fullness being dissimulated by tiny gores, and tho joining concealed by embroidery.
The elbow sleeve will have its innings in llie present season
as it is both practical and elegant.
"With the advent of the new models, many fancy sleeves
copied from old paintings will make their appearance, sleeves
with shoulder and elbow puffs, others rather full gathered
and stS-aight, and ethers still with tiny tops and full lower
portions coming from the elbow und gathered into a wrist
band. Metallic tulle veiled with black net or chiffon makes
pretty and becoming sleeves."
This recalls to mind an odd dream that 1 had just before
receiving this information, I dreamed that 1 was taken to a
very exclusive model house aud there shewn the latest frocks
that were Indeed wonderfully like the costumes shown in
paintings of olden times, with long pointed bodices mid
draped, berufiled uverskirts. Hut wlint seemed to interest me
most in the dream wus what my escort assured mo was to be
tho coining rage in sleeves. It was certainly a pretty
nodel, the material hugging the arm rather snugly at the
top where there was almost no fulness at the arm's-eye, then
flowing gradually out till it measured at least twenty inches
half way between the elbow and the wrist. This fulness was
not held by a Cliff, but only partly confined by a strap of
the material below which it escaped in a sort of frill, wil ten
fell over aa under frill of exquisite old yellow lace. T was
very emphatically informed in the dream that this frill was
tho most noticed characteristic of the new sleeve; that, and
the fact that the fulness was not caught In by a cuff, but
allowed the arm to show almost to the elbow, when even
slightly raised.

As in Paris, the opening or first night of a plav is now
regnrded iu New York as an event of decided importance
from a sartorial point of view. All the social world flocks
to these first nights aud the women vie with one another to
Imng oat their smartest nnd newest frocks on these occasions.
New York has experienced several first nights lately that
assembled really unusually brilliant audiences. The general visiting and foyer promenade between the acts now prevalent in New York theatres gives ample opportunity to
study tho gowning of womon. It is interesting to note the
general features of thc tout ensemble.
The majority of tho women now do not wear lints and
this gives scope to coiffuros that ore charmiugly, wonderfully
EARLY STAFFORDSHIRE POTTERY
THROUGH the generosity of Mrs. Abraham Lansing, of
Albany, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York,
hns como into tue possession of a collection of historical
Staffordshire blueprinted ware, consisting of thirty-seven
examples of plates aud platters decorated ia the majority of
cases with designs of more thau ordinary interest at this
time, when so much of old New York is vnuishing. Here are
records of such events as the opening of the Erio Canal, the
completion of tho Baltimore and Ohio railroad, the Texan
Campaign, and various pro-slavery and anti-slavery questions
that were to lead to the Civil War. At the beginning of the
last quarter of the eighteenth century block-printing was invented by Thomas Turner, of Caughley, and almost immediately taken up by Josiah Bpode and Stoke. Both potters
at first mado uso of the willow pattern and the amorphous
floral aad pagoda design quite commonly found upon tho
pseudo-Canton blue nnd white ware of China, which from thc
days of William und Mary to those of George III. were extensively used both iu Kngland and the colonies. At first
the ware .was printed in pale blue, the rich dark blue with
which we are so familiar appearing first towards the end of
the first quarter of the nineteenth century. As It. T. Haines
llalsey points out, in his "Early New Vork on Dark Blue
Staffordshire Pottery," 1899, the various decorative borders
of fruit, flowers, marine subjects, etc., so charming and distinctive in this printed ware, were first added about 1802
through the suggestion of J, Olive, u Tuustull engraver,
Among the pieces included in Mrs. Lansing's collection aro
mauy showing the distinctive designs for borders adopted by
such well-known potters as tho woods, Stevenson, Ridgway,
Stubbs and Clows, The Hoods came of a line of men thoroughly familiar witn the cermnnio art. From tho days of
Ralph Wood (1716*72)* earliest and best of the Staffordshire
figure modelers, down to the closing of the Burslein factory
direction. According to Halsoy, the chief characteristics in
tho decorative borders employed by the Woods are as foi
lows:
1. Hollyhocks, iris, and grapes on the La Orange and other
French views. '2. Sea-shells surrounding a circular opening,
It. Shells and murine flowers and an irregular opening ar*
ranged to givq the effect of a view from a grotto, *!. Various
flowers, among which double poppies are most conspicuous.
5, Small (lower dosi'-iis: roses, thistles and shamrock, found
on hollow ware, ('feces such as "The Landing of the Pit
grims" and "The Boston State House" havo their own
special borders.
As to the Ridgway8, .lohn and Robort, whose pottery is
now so famous alike for the brilliancy of its glaze and its
decorative subjects, they took over their father's factories
after his death iu 1 Hit. Between that time and the year
is:ill, when tlieir partnership was dissolved, the factories of
Shelton aad Wanlev were constantly turning out quantities
of this type of tableware. Bad the "Be.iuties of America''
series been their sole legacy, it would have made them fam
ous, so interesting are the designs there depicted.

THE ROAD-CARS OF CANADA
By Donald B. Sinclair
(From Canadian Courier)
A DOZEN years ago nobody in Canada owned an automobile. Mauy
people had heard of the motor
ear; Ihey had seen pictures in the Sunday editions aud illustrated weeklies
of the new-fangled conveyance—tires
and wheels aud Intricate engine; they
listened almost hopefully to rumors
that it was likely to drive tho bicycle
into the serap heap; hopefully, because
they wished it would. For about this
time thoy were becoming a littlo tired
of the bicycioj those lulls! But did the
average, everyday, Canadian eity man,
pedalling down to business think seriously of the possibility of lying buek
iu a luxurious tonueau aud wateh the
telephone posts whizz byl Probably
he thought the automobile little more
within his reach than tho aeroplane today. As l'or tho farmer—well, ho had
read of horseless waggons; tho Yankees
had them. Accounts sometimes appear
ed in the local paper uf these machines
over in the States frightening decent
people's horses. A new fad, evidently—
his spanking greys, out thero by the
burn were-still good enough  for him.
The embryo automobile in Europe an
the States grew every month, became
faet in tho market, developed into a
very live thing indeed. Canadians heard
more about thc machines Uncle Ham
was turning out. liis factories begnn
to smoke with the automobile industry;
hero and thero bank clerks resigned
their jobs to learn the coming business.
The Dominion all the whilo was au interested Spectator, However, in 1890,
the automobile began to dribble into
Canada by twos nnd threes—great lumbering "one lungers" these playthings
of the predatory rich. Many people
wondered where the fun was driving
one of thoso snorting, malodorous ma-
chinos which made a noise like n thrashing. Only tho owners fully understood.
Tho other day I was talking to au enthusiast who has followed tho automobile gamo from the beginning.
"Do you know," he snid with tho attitude of a veteran trailsmnn of the
West—he was thirty-five—"! doubt, if
the chop who chucks the speed limit
over his hood today with a forty horsepower, enjoys hitiisHf half as much
as we did ten yoars back. Do you see
that turnout!" uud he pointed to a rakish, red touring car, purring gently past
us. It was leaving a fashionable hotel;
three or four ladies iu tho tonueau; on
the front scat the chauffeur, uu alert
young man in brass buttons.
My friend regarded this moving luxury with a quizzical air,
"Humph," he said, "tame; motorists
of today don't know the sensation it
used to be to go en tour when a sensible
Uow took his overalls along. There
was something you don't experience
uow—after your batteries had gone to
blazes, to stretch yourself on your back
iu the dust, under the car, prying into
the mysteries of a machine which no
uo really seemed to understand. Then
we wero heroes—and this is an age of
hero worship."   He laughed.
The automobile has hit Canada hard.
Its ascendancy in our midst hns been
mostly a matter of the past five years.
The asthmatic car which occasionally
pulled up street ill 1000 was au expensive enigma, Tho man had courage who
attempted to go any distance in ono.
There were not a hundred men in the
Dominion who understood the median-
sm of a gasoline engine. A man might
rot stalled in a country town. Should
there bo anything the matter with the
engine, well, the knowledge of all thc
farmers and blacksmiths in the vicinity
would nut save him; they knew binders
down to the ground—but as for the intricacies of spark plugs and magnetos !
How different conditions iu 10101
Manufacturers have got the mechanical
equipment down pretty fine. Not enough
yet—but the car will go. Being a motorist is no longer an exclusive accomplish
ment, A man learns tu drive a car in
three days—taught by a smooth agent.
Women and girls guide their runabouts
through the densest crowds of the down
town streets.
Nowhere is tho remarkable appeal ol
the new mode of transportation better
illustrated thau in Canada. 1 have be*
fore mo a trade dispatch from Washing
tou dated May ;t0. It is rather startling, It imparts the information that
Iho imports by Canada of American automobiles for the past ten months were
valued at $3,O57,4o0: for the preceding
ten months $1,138,873. Canadians i
spending over threo mililous of dollars
a year on automobiles, increasing tlieir
expenditure nt about the rate of 200
per cent. There are bctewen five and
ten thousand users of automobiles in
Canada; that many citizens of the Dominion whose incomes can stand a drain
of from ouo to six thousand dollars
every couple of years for the satisfaction they get out of motor ears. Aro
these citizens mortgaging their assetsf
L put the question to an agent.
"No:" he said, emphatically, "not
much motor-mania of that sort here.
Tho remarks of a certain American publicist as to tho situation in tho States
dees uot apply here. Canadians have
too much Scotch shrewdness."

LORD KITCHENER
LORD KITCHENER, who came so
near visiting Canada without doing so—whereas Lord Roberts was
hero for several days, about two years
ago, and lately General French—has
beon as much in the public eye as Col.
Roosevelt. But, like Lord Roberts aud
unlike Col. Roosevelt, the "K. of K."
docs not advertise. Following is an appreciative pen picture of Britain's
greatest soldier in a recent issue of
M.A.P.:
Home again after eight years of service for King ami Empire, service in
the farthest corners of the world; back
in Loudon t'or a few weeks before proceeding to a new command—is Field
Marshal Viscount Kiteheaer, of Khartoum, O.M., our greatest soldier since
the Duke of Wellington.
On dune 24th he will keep his sixtieth
birthday. When ho stepped from his
train at Waterloo the other evening to
receive the welcomes of his friends and
the greetings of a people not unmindful
of what he has done for them since he
lirst won distinction at Toski, twenty
venrs ago, he smiled his pleasure at his
return.
lie stands as straight as a dart. His
bearing is the hearing of a man who
has schooled himself through many
patient years of endurance and obed
fonce to'the degrco of leadership and
command.
In appearance he has changed little
since we bade him welcome home fresh
fi-i'tn hi* triumphs of war and diplomacy
in South Africa. Uis faco iias been
burnt n duller red by Indian sui.s, but
the tropics have uot blunted or blurred
the clear cut features or tbe firm-drawn
lines In which we all saw the hope of
our victory, ever nfter the holocaust of
Colonso. The outline of the jaw and
the folds of the throat are a trifle heavier! th: t is his ouly concession to his
years.
The steel-grey eyes pierce you with
their indomitable power, with their look
of frank courage and high authority.
These are the eyes under which strong
men have quailed in tho hour of defeat;
thoy are tho eyes that have mado this
man master, of Afrien first, of India
afterwards, of himself always; that
havo made him feared nnd respected
even where he was not loved.
"I like Kitchener," onee said De-
larey, himself a great soldier, when the
Boer generals came as honored guests to
England, "his eyes are so honest."
A bachelor, it'is sometimes said thai
he is a hard stem man, and that ho dislikes women. That is a half truth; be
is not a misogynist, but he believes thai
women should be kept in their proper
place, and he docs not think that soldiers should have wives.
Lord Kitchener has no very great
opinion of newspapers ns vehicles of
self-expression (he prefers deeds to
words), and he lias more than once
timed seme great coup of his to follow
a curious breakdown of telegraphic
communication. He hns dodged iutov-
viewers, or has sent them a curt message to tho effect that "Lord Kitchener
has no statement to make."
Ho is self-reliant, and ho does not
advertise. He knows his worth, und be
is indifferent to opinion,
Wen who have served with him know
that he is tireless, and that he has ne
patience witfc men whoso code is not his
code.
He filled the interval between passing
out of Woolwich and being gazetted to
his regiment by serving with the FroDeh
army against the Germans, The Duke
of Cambridge recalled him, nnd asked
him What be meant by it.
"Well, sir," ho explained, "I understood that I should not be wanted fer
some time, and l could not bo idle, I
thought 1 might learn something."
It was characteristic of the man, who,
many years afterwards, paid a surprise
visit to Cape Town, aud Bent every officer ho could find hurrying to the front
by tho first available train.
WHY THUNDER "ROLLS"
DIIRIN'O electric storms, when the
lightning is very near, the thus,-
der is board once only with a
sound like the discharge of artitle/y.
When the storm is farther away the
thunder is not a short sound, but n
series of closely connected explosions.
When lightning bursts between two
clouds, or between a cloud and the
earth, thc different points on the course
followed by tho ciocttlo discharge are
at different distances from him who
lie..rs thom, so thnt tho sounds, travelling from different locations, reach tho
listening ours oue after another, the
period between the discharges apparently increasing as they come from
greater distances.
That famous landmark which oeen-
pies so prominent a position ou the
Mambletoii Mills, in Kngland "Tho
Kilburn White Horse," has had a
"spring cleaning." Three tons of Hmo
hnd to be used for whitening the
"White Horse," which now stands out
very prominently on the hillside. Tho
"horse" has not been re-coated sineo
