As an illustration of Chief Hiissoy's
liiiiiiaiiily to mail, there is no better
story ilinn iimt ol his dealings wilb a
giant sinker attached to one ol the
Hrilish warships stationed at Es'i|Ui-

The dark cell only made mailers very

The I'lin-f went at once and met Ibe

In spite oi repeated protests and
warnings, tbe i hi. i insisted on having
his wishes carried out. "I have no

oribably precious content*-it wai K
ipuvenjr ol highest value. Wtuit
hand* had penned it. What lyes had
scanned it. What lips bid read
it aloud to what wondering mgtf
gttions. But it* very existent* had
been long forgotten," ll not entirely,
at least by the great mass 1.1I tit
people. Quick tnd great won lha
gains al honoring God in th* rrltiHt-
tion of his tempi*. In that prude eg*
there were no safety botes or vaults.
The sustom ol hiding triasura main:
tained the high priest probably secreted the money raised lor Ihe repair,
He put it under some old plunder in
one of the onoocupiod rooms perhap*.
It was while ransacking the place for
the hidden treasure lhat he mads the
most remarkable1 "And" ol that agt.
He unearthed the only, the Ion} lost
nopy ol the Bible. The result of thi*
discovery was nl first importance. A
rule of life for both individual and
nation was Inund, a standard to
which either king nr peasant might
resort. No yonder that at first reading the king rent his clothm in regiet
and (etr, the will ol God as hen expressed having been so long tnd
grossly neglected. Became of Iho low
standard of education tt that tims
an interpreter was imperative, sotti
one with Ihe inner light, Ihe seme ol
the Divine, mud needs be found. Il
was in this way that Huldah entered
the trinity of women prophets, joining
Miriam and Deborah.
THE TEACHEH'S I.ANTEBN
It is sn ancient slory with modern
applications. There are many today
to whom the Bible is as perlaclly a*
lost a book aa it waa lo .iosiuh. The
public display of the Bible on tlie
cr.-il desk ii to be commended. In
sight it is in mind. Yet the Bible U
never lo lie a fetich. It' is only God's
vehicle. To worihip tho initiument ii
idolatrous. H the liook could speak
il would cry as the angel did lo
John "See (hou do it not I" Lite is
more than Ihe "hook". In ths nliiiu
ate analysis it is not so much what
a mun knows as what he is. Interpr*
tiiiiiin ol the scripture is Ihe diitinct
function nf the ministry ai it waaol
thu prophets iu olden lime. Not,
however, lhat the minietry haa ths
monopoly ol the lunclion. Many un-
ordained persons interpret skilfully.
But as general education inertness
need of specific interpreters decrease*.
Here ia an old time illustration of tbs
principle that .loans enunciated "He
who does ahall know." .loiiah waa
"doing". It waa when ha began to
repair the temple he found "th*
book." The' bible ia a potent 100k.
The reading nl it bringa things to
pass, It provokes either revolt 01
obedience, losiah sought an interpre-
lor to make iti content! plain. .Iihoi
akin reached lor a knile lo cut il in
shreds. The bible receive* tho sime
opposite treatment today. It should
not be thought a thing incredible
lhat the bible waa loat in that di*
lant and crude day. Thoae who
could read il could lie counted on
one's lingers. The bible wa* practically Imi again in the middle agei
even in those seats ol learning, tho
monasteries. Luther waa twenty
years old belore ha even saw a Bible.

.was first taken up by tba council apd
discussed clause by clan**, Mr. tiM-
fee flatly charging the cngiuoor with
personal spite in firing hinn-ll and
gtng, which however, he vat untitle
}p prove. Another point wbiflb tbt
litter demanded explanation was, why
be, |be oldest foreman on the division
htd been discharged and men hating
been at work only a few moot hi 1-ept
on.
In answer tp tbit, Mr; Pptgmye
stated that bt fas unaware oi tbt
time Mr. HcAffcc bad been employed
by the district, tnd that bit discharge
htd limply meant a saving pf money
He also explained the difficulty nl firing a foreman whose work was not
completed and putting tn old.r man
unfamiliar with the work in hi* plant.
Henve XeNaught thought that tbe
engineer should not discbarge men
without fint consulting lb* Board ol
Works, and that in every case the
reason ol precedent tn others should
be taken into consideration.
Councillor I.oulet thought that this
would not be feasible as il this rule
woro followed put, necessity would occasionally arise lo shilt foremen from
ono corner of Ihe municipality lo the
other.

healed arguments Ibat pass d lie

"Thai on account nf reducing the
day wnrk in tho district, the engineer
issue instructions that all things lie
ing cipini, tho ratepayers ol the district shall havo the preference, and
thai niiliidc men lie laid 00 first."
Councillor Allan then mado it a mo-
lion that Mr. HcAffee be reinstated.
Ilr. HcAffee, however, rvfueod to again
serve under District Engineer Gus-

Hireling wai passed. The motion was
ai follows: "Thtt in diioharging lure

Into    Climate - Novel    Cooking
School for ¥»n,
(Prom Own Correspondent)
That Muiitroal will Iw Iho lirst oity
i» tha world to ba oopM artiNaUy
during tb mimnwr months, ns soon
as an efficient system lor aspontpllsh-
ing this r*sMlt i* oorapl*Hi is lb*
ptost striking result ol tha repent hot
wave which in nvS days caused more
than 1<W deaths and nearly 1000 prostrations, and kept tb* ambulances going through th* streets to such an at.
tent that the oity thoroughfare* resembled an enormous racetrack.
Tha possibility of providing a muni
cipni cooling system ha* bain dismissed before, but never has anything lam
dope  because ot ths  lad   that it h*S
been thought that th* aspens* ol its
installation would be too<gr*at. Now
however, the realisation has pom* Ibat
it would work tremendous rconomies.
tfxperls who have looked into the
matter, figure Hint every sliding day
onuses n loss ol at least lilly tliousind
dollars to the city's business interests
through the decreased efficiency pi labor of all kinds under tb* enisling
conditions. Every day what the thermometer shows ninety degree* or over
means a decrease in working, efficiency
of about forty per cent, it is figured.
Moreover, practically every kind ol
business feels the cffict through the
slaokcned publio interest.
Cool air would be supplied the r%
during Ihe summer, along exactly the
same lines as though on a larger scale
as those by which heat is supplied to
the great office buildings In winter.
The solution ol Ihe problem has el
course not yet been worked out, but
il* actual value in dollars and cents,
makes ils ultimate arrival seem inevitable.
MALE CULINARY EXPERTS
An invasion ol women's right* on
the part ol the male aex is now imminent here as a result of tbs establishment ol a novel cooking ichool ex
cluiively lor men, the first ol it* kind
in the city. In it tbey will ba initiated into all sorts of culinary mysUrles
which heretofore have been taught to
women only, and within six weeks it
is expected that the sixteen pupils
who have entered up to the pnaunt,
will be able to make biscuit* which
will far excel the best that lather ever
mude and rival the fuinnue mother
product, incidentally ihey will Itstm
to cook meals, maka pastry, maiu-
laeturc a pie, or prepare uny other
dish which may be desired.
The establishment ol this school is
not, however, an effort lo educate the
husbands for suffrugettes who can oare
lor the household while the wife s <n-
gaged in i„,liiie.. or businefs. The idee
is merely lo undermine Ihe sovereign
independence ol Ihe cook who at pre
sent comes close to being Ihe ruler pi
many households. The founders o
Ihe school lielieve that us soon as a
leali/uiioii is achieved of Ihis lhat a
threat lo leave on the part of the
cook does nol mean thai Ihe '.only
will lie left in dire straits, a fairer le-
lalion will be established all around.
Incidentally, a course in the new
sell.,,,I will lie vuluahle lo the husband
left ilesolale in (lie city during tbe
time his family is al the seashore or
in the mountains.

■
Is a Loaf of Bread weighing
16 ounces and sold for
five cents, any cheaper
than a loaf weighing 20 ounces sold
at the rate of four loaves for 25
cents ?
fl The correct answer is NO, the
selling price by weight being identical
in both cases. Therefore, a man
that tries to make you believe that
one 16 ounce loaf for five cents
is a cheaper, buy than one 20 ounce
loaf at the rate of four loaves for
25 cents is deliberately misrepresenting facts, and the law of the
land brands such a man as being either
a knave or a fool or both.
