The twenty-third day of July,
nineteen hundred and four, is one
long to be remembered by residents
of the Royal City. Early in the
morning people from the surrounding district began to arrive in tbe
city and not the least gratifying
sight was that of so many farmers
who were present, all interested in
ibe opening ot the structure, upon
the usefulness of which such great
hopes have been built.

Ottawa, July 25.���Sir Frederick
Borden, Minister of Militia, took
occasion when the House met to-day
to call attention to the honors woo
by Private Perrv of the Sixth Dufce
of Connaught's Own Rifles Of Vancouver, in gaining the King's'Prize
at Bisley. He said that this was a
matter of congratulation for .parliament and for all the people of Canada. The prize had been /won
once before by a Canadian, but this
is the first time that ft had been
captured by a native-born Canadian.
Col. Sam Hughes endorsed what
the Minister of Militia said, but he
believed it did not matter where
Perry was born so long as he was.a
good citizen of Canada. He was
not a stranger or a foreigner,
whether born in Canada or not.

Cplumb an College.
Following is a record of the standing obtained by Columbian College
students at the matriculation and
undergraduate examinations ot Toronto University for the year. It
will be noticed that fully the average number of supplemental examinations in different subjects must
be passed by the students here be**
fore completing the year's work.
These papers can be taken in September so that the year's work i*
not lost. There are some who ask
how it is that the work done in the
College has such a fine reputation
while every year some ot the stu
dents have one or more supplemental papers to pass. The explanation
is that every student is given an
opportunity to advance as rapidly
as is at all possible. Ordinarily
two years are taken lor matriculation when in other institutions three
years at the very least must be
spent. Moreover, s udents ol
greater age, who for special reasons
wish to get through rapidly, are
often allowed to proceed to first
year work without taking matriculation. For this reason there will
be the yearly list of supplemental,
but the reputation of the College
will not suffer thereby.

A settlement worker, having been requested by anxious mothers to address
the younger women of the settlement
dobs on "heart Interest" topics, decided to do so. She talked with tbe girls
earnestly, urging upon them the deep
and Intrinsic sacrednet* of all love and
marriage relations, the coarseness and
vulgarity of indiscriminate flirtations,
the great and growing need for high
Ideals, standards and action on the woman's part Then, just ss she took her
seat, it occurred to her that she might
have talked a little bit over the heads
et her listeners, and sbe sprang to her
feet with an added remark:
"Please believe that what I say Is
true, my dear friends," she exhorted
earnestly, "and please don't think I
���don't understand my subject. I know
what I'm talking about, girls���I really

The Ward "Jolly."
On the adoption of tbe word "jolly"
Into tbe English it bad the meaning of
beautiful, as It has among tbe French
today. Tbe English dramatist Beaumont of tlie sixteenth century speaks
of our flrst mother as "the jolly Eve."
In time, however, it came to mean hilarious, regardless of physical beauty.
But this latter meaning is probably
the right one after ail, as the word
doubtless comes from Yule (Yu-Ie). tbe
pagan Christmas, so to speak, for be lt
known tbat what we now observe as
Christmas day was a heathen holiday
called Yule, and tbe Yule festival waa
one of noisy demonstration.
Yule Indeed means noise or outcry,
praising in loud voice, chanting, singing, making outcry in honor of their
god. From yule, then, to jolly the step
is short and easy, both meaning revelry, rejoicing. Ours is a risen Lord,
theirs tlie same. Tbe words are Identical. So, too, in large degree tbe Christmas jollities, praises and those of heathen Yule. Into such close relation do
simple words sometimes connect tbe
present with the past.
Peach  Pfta.
The statement has been made that
prusslc add was made from peach
stones. This is altogether a mistake,
for, although under certain conditions
a trace of the main principle of the
deadly poison can be found in peach
stones, there is not sufficient to produce tbe acid without other essential
ingredients. Indeed, without tbe process of fermentation there is no evidence
at all of prusslc acid ln the stones.���Exchange.

Early Polities! Platform*.
It is In the seventeenth century tbat
the first beginnings of tbe platform
must be sought, but these early trace*
of its use are very slight. That there
must bave been some little employment of it ln a demagogic way may be
Inferred from the "Characters" of Butler, the author of the ever memorable
"Hudlbras." He describes "a leader
of a faction" aa one who "sets tbe
psalm, and a'.l his party sing after hlm.
He is like i figure in arithmetic���the
more ciphers he stands before tbe mora
his value amounts to. He is a great
haranguer. talks himself into authority, and, like a parrot, climbs with bis
beak." It ls probable, moreover, that
the first form of the platform was tbe
.oiiventlcle or meeting bouse of tbe
Puritan or Dissenter, for Butler, ln his
character of "The Seditious Man,"
says that "if be be a preacher he has
tbe advantage of all others of bis tribe,
for be bus a way to vent sedition by
wholesale." But tbe platform at this
time was of no practical account Such
attempts as there were outside parliament to Influence opinion were made
by nieuiis of the press, partly by tbe
book, partly by tbe pamphlet and partly by the journal.-C. B. Boylance Kent

Chinese humor wbicb, if the sourco
were not known, might well be mistaken for American humor.
There is a Chinese story which tells
how a very stingy man took a paltry
sum of money to an artist���payment ts
always exacted lu advance���and asked
him to paint his portrait. Tbe artist at
once complied with the request but
When the portrait was finished nothing
was visible save tbe back of tbe sit- ,
ter's bead.
"What does this mean?" cried the sit- '
ter indignantly.
"Well." replied tbe artist, "I thought \
a man who paid so little as you paid
wouldn't care to show his face."

The First Lawbook.
The well known Assyriologist, Dr.
Hugo Winckler, published an account
of tbe legislation promulgated by King
Amraphel of Babylon, wbicb, so far as
is known at present, was the flrst book
of laws ever given to tbe world. King
Amraphel lived 2,250 years B. C. and
bi mentioned in tbe Bible as a contemporary of Abraham, so that bis statutes
were drawn up fully five centuries before tbe laws of Moses. Tbey number
282 aud contain tbe following:
"If a woman wbo sells beverages
gives bad value for the money paid
her, she shall be thrown into water.
"If a wife be a spendthrift or if she
j otherwise neglect ber duties, ber hus-
band may put ber away without compensation, but if a man put away bis
wife for no other reason than tbat she
has no children be shall return ber
whole dowry.
"If a betrothal be rescinded, tbe man
shall pay the woman compensation.

Oreat natures are always generous.
They are fountains not only of vitality,

of the service rendered, and no man

Bllsabethan Excise Law*.
In striking contrast to the present
laws to prevent habitual drunkenness
were those passed iu tbe reign of Queen
Elizabeth. TbeLansdowne manuscripts
in tbe British museum record thut In
1594 orders were set down by the lords
and others of ber majesty's privy counsel for the reformation of the great disorders committed by the excessive
number of alehouses, which tlie justices were ordered to reduce. The publicans were compelled to give to the
coiiRfnble of the parish the name und
business of every oue who frequented
their houses and were forbidden to
have any games played therein. On
Sundays no persons dwelling within a
mile of tbe public bouse were allowed
to enter except substantial householders traveling to church, and then ouly
for a reasonable time to refresh themselves. Curiously, the chief complaint
against publicans was tbe "brewing
stronger ale and beer than ls wholesome for man's body."���London Chronicle.
