The only tiling that is hindering our waterfront from being

is tlie folly ami short sighted
policy of the railway company
seeking lo run their railway
tracks along the whole waterfront

good reason, that our Hats and

There Is n common Idea tlmt fowls

there Is n large grass run, but this Is
qulto n mistake, snys the American
Poultry Advocate, A few liens oou-

and kept clean will lay moro freely
thnn those that hnve :,n unlimited
range, and, usually being In more sheltered quarters, they are inure likely to
lay in ilie winter lhan form poultry, lt
is net nn expensive business tn wire

up a small bouso, A woodou bouso lor
half n dozen fowls need enst Imt very
Utile, and  tviie  for tho run is  very
cheap, 'ilie bouso musl bavo ventilation provided at the top above tho lovol
of tbe perch. An old bos will, „ little
well broken straw In it will do for a
nest. The flour of lhe house can bo
niiule of earth beaten hard nml lovol.
a sprinkling of dry nslios under ihe
porch will enable the droppings in be
removed with n trowel in n few seconds. A portion of the wire run Bhould
if possible he covered so us ni afford
protection from tbe rain, nml under
ihis should be placed ,i good sized box
of dry Band or sifteal earth. In this llio
fowls will clean themselves, a great
essential, conducing immensely to
their health,
'I'he feeding of Iho lions Is a very
simple mailer. There must lie a warn,
breakfast of meal given as soon after
tho birds aro off the perch as enn be
managed. This meal Bhould bo composed of middlings anil barley meal in
equal parts mixed inlo a stiff paste*
with hot waier. Any scraps nf moat,
etc., from ,be bouso enn be added and
stirred In with it. At noon some cut
grass, cabbago loaves or othor green
food m„=i bo given nml before the
birds go to roost some grain, bucIi ns
wbeaL Poultry mixtures of various
groins are not good; neither is corn,

Stringent Bill to Oporato In England to
Stop Juvenile Smoking.
In their report Issued recently tho
Committee on Juvenile Smoking strongly urged the British Government to in-
troduco a bill nest session (partly on
tlio lines of sir Ralph Hitler's measure, which they prefer to Lord lteay's)
as follows:
1. Every person knowingly selling cigarettes, cigarette papers, cigars, or tobacco to any child under sixteen to bo
liable for Ihe tlrst offence to a line not
exceeding £2, and for subsequent offences not decoding £5.
2. Every child under sixteen found
smoking or In pa>ssession of cigarettes, olc, to be liable to a penally not
exceeding £2 for each offence.
3. Constables to bo allowed to stop
youths apparently under sixteen seen
smoking In a public place and to con-
nscato tobacco found on Ihem.
t. Local authorities to bo allowed to
extend some ot these powers to park-
keepers, schoolmasters, and others, and
possibly to railway and dock companies.
5. Provisions to b'' mado to exempt
children procuring tobaceo for tholr
parents or carrying messages for Ihelr
No recommendation Is mado In regard
to automatic machines. Teachers aro
expected to dwell occasionally on Uio
bad effects of the habit.
Tho committee are satisfied that juvenilis smoking has rapidly increased,
that It facilitates disease and leads lo
drinking, ond aro Impressed by tho absence of signs of physical drterlorallon
among girls who are as a rule free from

Nat a  Single  Professed  Anarchist  In
tho Good City—Tho Quetm
City Leader.
Toronto can,u)t bajast of having the
same number of Socialist workers as
Montreal, says The Montreal Standard,
In the latter city they are both numerous and aggressive. In the former
thoy nro less o msplcuous nnd more
conservative In carrying on their propaganda, for let lt not be forgotten that
Toronto has not yet had a .May Da/
liut If tho Queen City cannot boast
of having a Sieiaiiist movement an
strong and as no,ive as that of Montreal, lt can lay claim lo possessing a
great number of Intelligent Socialists,
who do nol rave ami tear their hair In
tho revolutionary fashion, but seek to
innke converts through Iho means of
argument nml Illustration rather than
the wholesale condemnation of everything capitalistic.
Members of Trade Unions.
Tho majority of Toronto English-
speaking Socialists nro nearly all members of their respective trndo unions.
Their advocacy uf their doctrines Is
not confined to converting Individual
trade unionists to their way of political reasoning, but tbey also liave mass
meellngs and seek to teach the toller
tho "facts" of their cult. What distinguishes Socialist propaganda In Toronto from that of Montreal Is that
while the followers of the red flag In
Montreal aro nearly all foreigners mora
than 50 per cent, of Toronto Socialists
ara all British subjects, Including the
recognized leader of the movement.
There are at present three groups,
the nationality of Ihem being English,
Finnish and Jewish, wilh an Italian
local In the course of formation. All
told, they number some f mr hundred.
Movement Started Five Years Ago.
Tho movement is not very old. having been stalled some flvo years ago
by a number of Canadians, and was at
the highest point of Its progress when
It could boast of 1,nvlng a newspaper
to set forth Its views. Since that time
It has not made great progress, but
Its followers never lose an opportunity
of making capital out nf ami exposing
tho ladles nf their opponents.
The Socialists lu Toronto and Ontario are, however, ahead of llieir Quebec brethren In one respect, end lhat
Is In the person of their leader, Mr.
James Simpson.
Believe In Their Leader,
The rank nnd Ilie of organized labir
In Toronto are thoroughly convinced
that though the movement of whloh .Mr.
Simpson Is the loral chief may not be
the right one lo Improve tbe condition
of the masses, there Is no questioning
his sincerity mid high regard for principle. That they believe in his since,'.
Ity Is evidenced by tho faet lhat he
has been, for the tlrst time In the hls-
toty of Ontario, 1/ not In Canada, elected a school trustee on tho Socialist
ticket, receiving over 6,000 votes. In
addition ho is vice-president of tho
Dominion Trades Congress, as well as
president of the Toronto Typographical Union, which recently elected hint
delegate to the Victoria Convention of
lhat body, which, If tho views of Ills
supp.ntors meet with the approval of
tho ninjiirlty of tire delegates, will elict
him president.
Introduced Socialist Resolution.
It wa* he that Introduced the memorable Socialist resolution which created such an uprtiur at the Montreal
convention of the Trades Congress,
Unfortunately, however, for the progress of lhe movement In Toronto, Ils
Intolleeiiial standard-bearer has not
been able to influence a large number
of his fellow wage-workers to think as
himself. There being lower aliens In
ihe chief city of Ontario than are to
be found In Montreal Is responsible for
lis slow growth.
The great mass of tollers there do
n')t seemingly care to Introduco the
chango of property ownership that Socialists advocate. They prefer lo work
alonr conservative trade union lines for
any Improvement In their natural welfare. With ihat stubbornness that char-
aoterlzcs the Englishman above all other, they Uu change, and thus It comes
about that though Toronto may Justly
claim to be a progressive city, from the
standpoint of those who wish to suh-
stltuio iho co-operativo commonwealth
for tho present competitive system of
production and sale, Montreal has the
distinction of having lhe largest number ot Socialists to be found In nny one
city In Canada, Strange to relate our
special Investigator, In spite of the
moat diligent enquiry, was not ablo to
locate on Anarchist, either piofessed
