THERE will bc general dissatisfaction with the
decision of the Supreme Court of Canada to
the effect that women are not 'persons' within
the meaning of the British North America Act
and are, therefore, not elcgiblo for seats in the
Senate. The emancipation of woman from her
political disabilities has been a long process but,
evidently, the complete abolition of barriers to
sex is not yet an accomplished fact in Canada.
The decision of the Supreme Court will probably
have the elt'ect, however, of hastening the day
when, in Canada at least, the mothers and wives
of men shall no longer be regarded as political
The judgment of the Supreme Court of Canada
i nthis matter raises the question, if women are
inelegible to ait in the Senate, what makes them
eligible for membership of the House of Commons? If Miss McPhail, Canada's only woman
M.P., is a "person" in the Commons does she cease-
to be a "person" in the Senate ? Or, to reverse the
position, if women are elegible to sit in the Senate
Chamber, not being "persons," are they legally
entitled to sit to membership of both Chamber-;
or of neither. They cannot logically or legally
common sense would say, be debarred Irom one
legislative body while being admitted to the other
both legislative bodies being branches of the same
sex, the "female of the species," as Kipling terms
woman. You never ean tell what influence an
attractive woman might wield over those susceptible old gentlemen, most of them in the "sere
and yellow leaf" and, consequently, not well-fitted
to protect themselves from woman's wiles. The
morals of men must be protected at all costs,
assuming that Senators have morals. Perhaps,
on the other hand, the judges thought the ladies
might not be safe in Senatorial company. This
is a compliment to the Commons but a terrible
reflection on the Senate. Perhaps the judges
think there are too many of women in the Senate
THERE is much talk of Ca lada being prosperous today. It is doubtless true. The country s
prosperity need not be questioned, Most of
us are more concerned with our individual prosperity than with the country s. This is a quite
natural feeling, though possibly somewhat selfish.
Possibly the best way to make and keep a country
prosperous i.. to have each individual in the
country prosperous, ll is not true national prosperity when there are some tu.prosperous.
There is an individualism in regard to prosperity that is often overlooked. Prosperity is largely
a matter of personality. If one decides to be
prosperous and refuses to be poor, he can be
prosperous . It is harbouring the thought of
poverty that keeps us poor. Will. Shakespeare
said, "There is nothing evil but thinking makes
it so," which may be applied to man's financial
condition moil aptly. Perhaps we might put it
this way, there is nobody poor but thinking makes
him poor. This sounds like but poor consolation
to the fellow who is hard up, to the wife and
mother making a desperate struggle to make both
ends meet on the husband's low wages, or to the
man or woman out of work. Yet it is true tha
the very sense of poverty, the feeling of it, make,
poverty worse. It induces a feeling of hopelessness, dims the eye and slows the step.

She pressed Bruce's arm warningly
Sho hul heen .-o foolish as to arouse
his suspicions-poor Oarl. She said
hurriedly: —
"Of course.    I only meant, If"-
"If!" Carl repeated. He sat down
hefore the typewriter, his happiness
vanished, fated only hy Uie possibilities of another failure. Paull whispered to Bruce:—
"Please"—and started toward the
dining room,    llruce said quietly:—
"Well, I'll have to have a copy to
take with nie to Loudon. I'd almost

sulky with suspicion.
"I ehant. Word of honor. 111 take

The clouds vanished. Carl jumped
up from tlie chair and took his friend
by the hand. Ills face was jubilant.
A producer iu London! And Bruce
said he'd be sure to take tlie play!
"You and Pnuli," said Carl, huskily;
"my best friends—my good angels.'
"Oh, come! 1 don't fancy myself in
wings nnd a pleasing smile," said
Bruce, laughing. He thought, poor
hoy, wliat will become of him? These

! "Pauli," suid Carl in a strange voice.
; "Bruce. I want to speak to vou about
I Pnuli."
The door bell rang sharply. Bruce's
grave face cleared. He hadn't warned
I to talk nbout Pnuli. He wasn't one to
; speak of the Lhings nearer than his
1 skin, dearer thnn his life, closer thnn
. his heari   bents.
;    "Oh, damn," said Carl, "I suppose
' it's the Winckelmans."

Pnuli opened the door.   But not to

Bruce, punning atrociously iu his own
language,   called   him   Pauli   remembered this, inopportunely enough, and
almost giggled as she greeted him: —
"Oh, Mr. Behrend, how nice to see
you!     Please come In.
Mr. Behrend advanced impressively
Inlo the room. He was a big mnn. amply hechinned, a mun whose upward
pointing mustaches, whose blond,
coarse hair cut en bosse. whose light,
restless eyes, nnd heavy, practical
bauds ail suggested vitality, energy,
will power. His clothes wore excellently cut, he wore too much--but
good jewellery. He looked what ile
was, successful, complacent, Insensitive nnd domineering.
He putted Paull on the shoulder.
"Little   Pauli."
Ills eyes roved over her in astonishment. Pauli, recalling her apron, put
back her hands to unfasten the strings
She snid, blushing a little, furious at
herself for caring: —
"My apron! I—thought it was earlier

Mr. Behrend beamed forgivingly upon her. His momentary agitation had
vanished. He hnd though! to be received in festive garments -had he

which  seemed  to shrink before  him.

apron Bruce mhde a long arm, took It
from her.lnld It over the machine Just
as Carl turned to receive his father's
greeting, one which  wns tinged with
■ Just the correct amount of parental
' tolerance nud patience"—
"Ah, my boy"—
He shook hands witli his son, nn unnecessary gesture It wouhl seem, considering the fact that they had parted
only a few hours hefore. Yet somehow the elder Behrend managed to
convey and not too subtly, thai he was
bestowing a fnvor upon his "boy" wltb
his hand, perhaps oven a temporary
pardon, or, at any n-ate. an armistice.
Now he turned to Bruce and greeted

Tbe Fates had Jan.   Carl's servant,

"Come in Jan." She turned to Baruska; unpack Mr. Bebrend's karlo-
wltzer aud put the bottles on the sideboard. And tell the professor tho

the side door some time ago; lie must
be In his room."
Baruska darted a bovlnely coy look
at Jan and led the way through the
dining room. Pauli turned back to
Mr.  Behrend.
"Do let me have your hat, and tlnd a
comiortable chair"—
Behrend, who regarded the slraigii
backed chairs in ttie room with

Behrend said carelessly:—
"l'er.-onaily, a music hall bores me,
but today ho must think lirst of Carl

He thumbed the tickets over and

young people exchanged glances ol'

his legs luxuriously und eying the

He looked at Carl as one who should

and continued:— "And so the boy's

he lighted bis pipe, and looked over

of paper from a pocket book and waved
It iu the air.
"Here.'' said Behrend. "is the schedule I've drawn up for the day"—-
Pauli seated near him, reninrkcil.
"We had some plans to"—
Behrend looked at her with tolerance. He continued with an nir of
brushing aside any plans other than
his own.
"After dinner we shall all walk in
the Prater."
Pnuli smiled hopefully.
"That was our idea, also," she said.
Behrend considered a moment. Bruce
thought, a lltlte angry, a Utile amused
"By Jove—-he's pondering on giving it

"Of course, you took the very words

"Let nie get." Bruce suggested diffidently.
"Certainly not! I'll telephone . .

He reached fur the telephone and,

he stared at tbe typewriter it had concealed. There was no mistaking lt. .

"What's this? A new typewriter . .

1ms received word from the Department of Education that on and after
July 1st the city will be raised from
a tliir class to a second class school
district. This superior rating is hardly a matter for congratulation, as the
charge is one that will cost the citizens ln the neighborhood of $460 per
year additional for scliool rates. It
will also benecssary for an election
for two additional trustees to be held
immediately, as the act calls for a
school board of live members in a
second class scliool district. At present the city Is receiving a grant of approximately ?5fir> toward eauh teacher's salary from the Government.
but under the new rating this will be
cut down to the extent of $!)() per teti-
cher per year. The school board bas
put up a vigorous light lo have the
city retain Its old rating, and iu this
they have been ably backed up by the
member for the district, but the uu-
swer of the Government is that the
fact that Cumberland has an actual
daily attendance of over 250 pupils.
It Is out of tlie cabinet to sanction tho
retention of the old rating. When the
city has an actual average school attendance of 800 pupils it will become
a school district of the lirst class, and
receive a still smaller amount of financial assistance from the Province
for school purposes. For yearn the
city has had an enrollment far in excess of this number, but the actual
attendance is still well under that

Diptheria Can Be Prevented
Diplheria ls caused by the poison
or toxin produced by the diptiheria
germs lodged in the human bodv
usually in the throat and nose.
When this toxin attacks the body,
the latter seeks to protect itself, and
it does so by producing diptberia antitoxin or anti-pol&on, which counter
acts or neutralizes the toxin.    If this
occurs quickly enough and sufficient
quantity  is  produced, the  body  wins
and recovery results.    Not only does
recovery   take   place   but.   something
happens   inside   this   human    body
i which enables it. In most cases, to pre-

Can protection similar to that conferred by one attack of the actual dis-
j ease  be  gained   without   the  danger
I of death antl without fear of the suffering that  comes  with   tbe  disease?
The answer is "Yes,"
