Mrs. Macken Writes for the CHINOOK
An Interesting Article Favoring the
Establishment of a Juvenile Court For
South Vancouver
Members of the executive of the
South Vancouver Social and Moral
Reform Council took a preliminary
step in establishing a juvenile court
by interviewing the municipal council
on Thursday evening and asking that
an appeal be made to the Attorney-
General to have the word city struck
from the provincial enactment regarding a detention home and that the
word municipality bc put in its place.
The following from tlie pen of Mrs
Macken is of timely and especial
terest :
The object of a children's court is
to separate adull and more hardened
offenders from those beginning, or in
dangtr of beginning a career of crime,
and to try to reform rather than merely  to punish.    Many  of the younger
time. Particularly is that thc case
where we have been able to awaken
the parents to a sense of their responsibility to the young life entrusted tei
their care. In the cases where second
and third offences have been committed thc cause can frequently be
traced back to the criminal neglect
of the parents, the hopeless conditions
of the home life, Ihe sometimes hostile attitude of the parents to the Juvenile Court, and the utter disregard
n-1 for the moral growth of the child.
I In   numerous  cases,  where   the  child
has been in the Detention Home fo
some weeks, under the wise and kind
control of the Probation Officer, Mr.
Collier, and subjected to the sweet,
motherly kindness of Mrs. Collier,
thc   improvement  and     development,
law-breakers sin through ignorance, i morally, of the delinquent is marvel
never having been under discipline or I Ious. It is saddening and painful, then
training, others from bad example, I to send back the child to the same
others from love of excitement, while wretched, hopeless and helpless con-
many of the offences for which juven-1 ditions which were mainly responsible
iles arc summoned are technical ones, I for its fall. What else is to be ex-
not real moral offences. j pected than that the unfortunate one
The adoption of thc Juvenile Delin
cjuent Act. passed by the Federal Government is in different places producing excellent results. Some of the
conditions of the Act are as follows :
1. That a proper detention hemic*
has been established, and will lie
maintained, for thc temporary confinement of juvenile delinquents, or
children charged with delinquency.
Thc Institution must bc conducted
more like a family home than like a
penal institution, and must not bc under the same roof as, or in the immediate vicinity ..I any peilice station,
jail, lock-up, or other place in which
adults are confined or may lie imprisoned.
2. That an Industrial School as
defined by Clause II of Section 2 "I
the Act, exists, to which juvenile delinquents  may  be  committed.
3. That there is a judge or magistrate having jurisdiction in the city,
town or other portion of a province
in which it is sought to have the Act
put in force, willing lo act as Juvenile Court Judge, provided for without
recourse to the Federal authorities.
-I. Thai remuneration for an adequate staff of probation officers has
been provided for liy municipal granl.
public  subscription  or  otherwise.
5. That some society or committee is ready and willing to net as Juvenile  Court  Committee.
Under thc Juvenile Delinquent's
Act no children under sixteen can be
classified as criminals, or placed under arrest in a jail or lock-up and
brought before a police court or herded together with other criminals The
whole method is humane ind sane.
The great problem of juvenile delinquency cannot be considered apart
from environment. It is impossible
to adequately judge any child who
ceimmits an offence apart from his
surroundings and especially ire mi
what they generally term "hemic."
When a deliuqueiU child is brought
in to the Detention Home in Vancouver Ills or her home conditions
arc at once enquired into by one of
the officers who visits the home, and
��� eti court day, when the child comes
before the judge of the Juvenile
Court, a parent or guardian must appear for the child, to answer to their
responsibility, in the care and management of the delinquent. Here let
mc quote what Judge Shaw says in
the Annual Report of the Juvenile
Court :
"Since my appointment wc have had
before the court many individuals, and
the results have been very encouraging, a very large percentage of the
juvenile delinquents dealt with have
not had to bc brought back a second
must fall again and again? Some
thing of the nature of a Boarding
School or Parental School should be
provided, where, removed from these
baneful influences and directed by
wise teachers, the child can be trained for some years, until the moral
character is strengthened and hc or
she can walk .-lone, and I urge all
interested in these wayward children
to further our efforts and have such
a   school   established."
Once in a while we get a boy out
of a good family���that is. men.illy
spealcing���who has taken advantage
of his parents because they had too
much confidence in his ability tei
choose his own companions. Needless to say, sucu cases arc easily eloalt
with and. with a short period of probation usually turn out entirely satisfactory.
A better idea of the working of our
Detention Home cannot be given than
just to qm >ie what the matron, Mrs.
Collier,  says :
"No one but those ass niated with
me can form any idea of what it
means to handle these juvenile delinquents, coining as they do from all
sorts of homes, .-mil some from no
heeines at all. Some have come duty,
and some clean, some sickly, and others in robust health, but each and all
with a decidedly wrong idea of life,
and it takes all the lad and wisdom
one can command lo get them to
grasp the right idea. We try to teach
thein that they were created for a
high and noble purpose. That they
are part of the plan Of a Divine mind;
that to- sin against themselves they
S-poil their chances "I fitting ltit.> the
place which has been planned for
them, and that for their own sake
they must be good and honest, and
straightforward in all iheir dealings.
Senile do not grasp il readily, .but
others soon catch the idea, and when
they do tlie work of reformation soon
commences. Some will say that this
line nf thought is too high for lliese
children, but I say no; for il is the
one sure principle to build up character on, and as thc foundation must
be right, the work musl ceunincnce
early. The principle of doing right
because it is right, and leaving wrong
because it is wrong will help them
past many a pitfall. Then, too, we
try to teach them system, and that
this might be more successfully carried out we have a regular schedule
of work for each day put up in a
conspicuous place so that they know
what the duties of each day will be.
Besides this we try to teach them
regular habits in connection with
their food, etc., and we have a regu-

the meeting of the board of works on
Tuesday  afternoon.     An   exact   comparison of the bids is impossible owing to the facl that some of the con-
��� eerns tendered on  the unit basis and
others for a lump sum.    As read they

Reeve Kerr Interviewed
Expresses Optimism Regarding
Future of the Municipality
Reeve and Councillors Work as Units at the Council Board for
the Weal of the Municipality
In an interview with a representative of the CHINOOK, Reeve Kerr
said he felt very optimistic regarding
the municipality as well as its financial situation. He had little doubt
but that they would be able to proceed with the paving of Bodwell Rom)
and hoped that in a short time they
would have quite a large amount of
pavement on Main Street. He was in
sympathy, he stated, with the idea of
paving Victoria Road, owing to the
fact that the B.C.E.R. Co. were ready
to lay their permanent rails and the
street needed improvement of some
kind. They were anxious to start a
lot of thc work as soon as possible,
while the weather was good and to
give work to thc unemployed.
When asked as to the harmony existing among the members of the
council board, the Reeve said everything was moving along smoothly,
with every councillor anxious that the
work of the municipality should be
going with a swing.

Sense from the Bench
A Nelson, B. C. dispatch says : "I
think it a reproach to our jurisprudence that men who are injured in
these industrial occupations should
be forced to resort to questionable
actions against employers," said Chief
Justice Hunter in the supreme court
in dismissing thc action for $.3,000
damages under the Employers' Liability act brought by Patrick Ward i
against the Canadian Pacific Railway
company. The state should make pro-'
vision for these industrial cases juste
as for the deaf, dumb and blind, he
continued, and he went on to point
eiut that very often the plaintiffs in
'such actions were successful but  that
aptain or some member o' the crew
The finest thing he saw wis the
wey the polisman at Ludgate Circus controlled the immense amount
o' traffic.
He menshuned he had seen the
Tower Bridge raised twice in ten
meenits. He couldna hae been long
in Edinburgh or he micht hae saw the
Iron Dook jump off his horse when
the wan o'clock gun fired tae feed his
horse a biscuit.
He only said he had visited Glesca.
Never a word mare. I wunner if he

There's nae questionin this is a wunnerfu' age we're livin' In at present.
In the sweet by and bye when the
history o' the present time is written
I've nae doobt thc historian '11 put the
period were livin' in as bein' the maist
remarkable  for discovery.
I wis jist thinkin' mysel the ither
nicht ee' the wunnerfu things that hae
been invented or discovered this ten
year back.
We bae sic practical wonders as
wireless telegraphy an telefony; aeroplanes an airships, an' as the auctioneer says���ither things too numerous
to  menshun.
Then in the field o' discovery we
hae the North an' Sooth Pole lined
up���deeds which hae tried thc metal
an' cost thc lives o' many strong men.
I telt yae o' anither famous invenshun a whitey ago���that yin o' the
twa pieces o' steel wire that could
determine the sex o' thc unborn chick.
Weel its inventor says its still in the
embryo stage yet. He's thinkin' o'
sellin' it an' buying some ile stock.
But noo of a' the maist famous discoveries that hae ever been made 1
think that Vancouver alderman that
went hame an' discovered the auld
country '11 rank as the greatest hero
o' the present age.
His mission incidentally wisna of
very great importance for a twa
cent stamp wud hae accomplished Ihe
same desirable object���but as it turned oot the money spent on that trip
has come back tae the ratepayers in
a wey that they didna expect.
Who wud hae thocht they wcre
sae faur advanced at hame as tae be
able tae draw the remark frae a Vancouver alderman : "She's a great
country, boy, she's a great country,"
meaning Scotland, of course, I presume.
Tac quote his ain words :
"Why, after leaving Fishguard it
was just like travelling through a
park all the way through England."
enthusiastically remarked the alderman. "Of course, we passed through
towns, but one moment we woulil be
spent in gien they fellies at the city
hall a jaunt n.io an' then. But who
wud hae believed the auld country
could hae taught a Vancouver alderman onything.

"The  truth  at  all  times firmly stands
And  shall   from   age to age endure."
In an Ontario town there was a boy
whose father was dead and wlie.se
me.ther, a woman of weak intellect,
supported herself and the lad by doing scrub work by the day. The boy
was alert, active, kindly disposed, but
very impudent. William Hanks, as
we will call him, roamed the streets
of the town with other urchins, and
while still a very little fellow, one of
his games was to annoy the teewn constable and have that very officious
gentleman  give  him  chase.
Sei bold did young William beconie
that, by the time he was twelve years
of age, hc was leader of a band of
te.wn boys who smoked cigarettes!
and who broke away from school and
played "hookey."
William's mother was getting old
and her earnings grew hss and less.
One day. when the boy was about 14
years of age, lie strolled Into the town
market, where the rich farmers had
their produce for sale. One old farmer was offering a fine line of fresh
meats. While the e.ld chap was busily
engaged framing a new policy for Ihe
then decadent Ross government, the
lad sneaked up behind him, grabbed a
thick beef steak and made off with it.
It so happened that the town constable's office was at thc front of lhe
market. William had to pass that
way in order to make the street. The
constable saw the lad and the steak
and swiftly made the deduction that
some one had done wrong.
The next morning the rich farmer
testified against the boy who was
charged in open police court with
theft. The. constable gave evidence
against him and several citizens testified as to the lad's evil temperament, and that night the town paper
came out with a half humourous storv
to the effect that "Bad Bill Banks'"
was in trouble again and had got
thirty days in the county jail for a
daring and  spectacular  theft.
After doin? thirty days, the boy
went back to live with his mother.
Other mothers forbade their boys
to have anything lo do with the
youngster. It wasn't very long after
that "Bad Bill," as thc town paper
had dubbed him, was in trouble once
more. The offence was not of a serious character, but the sentence was
again  thirty  days  in  the  county jail.
At sixteen, the lad was a drunkard
anil a cigarette fiend, His mother,
who had met with an accident, had
been ushered off to a charitable institution, and thc boy earned his living
working about the pool rooms ami
bar rooms of the town. One day, in
a pool room, he playfully took a dollar
bill out of the pocket of another lad
of liis own age. alsei employed in thc
pool room. The other boy jumped on
Bill and took the money away from
him.    The police were notified.
Ovi'.' more the town paper said:
"Bad Bill Banks Again in Trouble���
Seven Years in Kingston Penetentiary
for Robbery  from  thc  Person."
This sixteen year old boy was man-
acled and taken away to the penal
institution in which he is still serving
out  his  sentence.
In that Ontario town there were
many churches and many schools. It
is one of the oldest towns in Canada
and civic government should there be
found to have reached a high degree
(ef excellence. They have a great
Canadian college in that town and
there is much culture. There is much
wealth in the town and little poverty.
There was in this eastern town a
charitable organization which took
upon itself the responsibility of taking care of William Hank's mother,
when worn out and aged, she was unable to sustain herself; there was an-
j other organization  of  policemen and
I turnkeys   who   took   it   upon   themselves   to   punish   the   boy   when   he
I committed   a   breach   of   the   criminal
code.     But  there  was  lacking in  that
'centre of culture and wealth any organization to reach out and rescue
a simple child freem the jaws of vice.
It is encouraging to note that the
progress of South Vancouver is not
confined tei materialistic matters. This
week a committee of citizens, including leading clergymen, waited upon
the .Municipal Council for the pur-
peise of securing the assistance of that
body in the establishment in the district of a juvenile court The laws
of the land do not at present permit
mere district municipalities to have
juvenile courts. The stand is probably taken that district municipalities
are only juvenile cities. An "effort
will be made to have thc law changed
so that in South Vancouver we may
have a tribunal such as they have in
the City of Vancouver and in Calgary,
Denver, Chicago and other leading cities, before which children who have
erred- may come and receive humane
and  Christian  treatment.
Magistrate Johnson of South Vancouver is one of thc originators of the

Editor  Chinook" :
Sir.���Might 1 through the medium
of yuur valued paper, with all due
deference,   offer   a   suggestion   tie   tlle
Reeve ami Councillors. It is���if I
may call it mi���a co-operative scheme
between   the   working   men   and     the
municipality. It is used in Manitoba
to liquidate the road tax, and with
some modification, works admirably
and gives every Satisfaction. It is
simply this. Let those that arc ratepayers receive a receipt from the
foreman, countersigned, if you like,
by the engineer, for the work they
have done, payable, say, every fortnight, anil the amount to be applied
to their tax account Some may have
only live 'ir six dollars to pay, in
which case they will receive a receipt
minus the live or six dollars, the same
they can band over to their storekeeper te. supply them with goeids,
he presenting this receipt to the council when there arc funds, which wemld
bc duly been.ircd. By this means the
men are constantly employed, and
tlle City improvements successfully
carried onwards. If, on the other
hand, work ceases until funds arrive,
the men remain idle, with no diminution of their tax account, and their
store bills increasing and giving them
no chance to liquidate their indebtedness. Of course this is only a temporary scheme.
Whilst on thc subject of work, it
seems rather peciliar to say tbe least
of it, that one foreman can keep a
gang of men constantly employed,
married or single, whilst another has
constantly tei dismiss bis men or keep
on a lew married men. under tlle plea
that be must keep down expenses,
which is a g 1 move if properly applied, bul the foremen's pay goes on
all Ibe same, whether there's work
or not. Are these dismissals the
fault of the foreman or the engineer
���a problem the men would like to
solve? It Is beyond dispute there is
an immense amount eif work yet to
be deme. and if all cannot bc let on
one piece of work there arc others
tbat tequire attending to. Perhaps
clearer beads ill the council than mine
can put my crude ideas into a workable feerm. if so, I shall feel happy
in that I have in a small degree contributed to the contentment of others.
���Yours, etc.
It is so.   Why not?
Editor  "Chinook" :
In the early spring, I took the liberty of addressing you, pleading for
work for the unemployed. The question . was "Why not? If s<>. then
why not?" Will your readers listen
once more, seeing that the season is
open, and offers every inducement for
beautifying the gardens.
Kind-hearted people did 'phone the
Salvation Army (Seymour 259) and
men were sent to their houses to put
their garden in order, for a small
sum of money, and all those who asked for flower secd9 were supplied

Mr. F. R. Benson, the gifted actor,
1 so recently a welcome visitor here,
once wrote a very charming paper on
the festival at Stratford on Avon. He
I gave many good reasons why such a
j festival should be held in the lovely
Warwickshire village and all those
reasons can bc given with much more
force ior a "Fesitval Day" in Vancouver. True we have not, as r. ov,
a wealth of history, but we have
crowded many events into a few years,
we arc still making history and can
show "history in the making" as well
as indicate our aspirations ber the future.
Then in this wonderful Cosmopolitan City we have people all proud ol
their history and traditions and it is
good now ami then for us to remind
ourselves of the romance, poetry and
folk-lore of the lands we have left.
This stimulates the Irtic patriotism
which will show itself ill ibe civic
spirit and urge us to wnrk for the
welfare of the city ill which we have
made   iur home.
Il is lien early le. prophecy what the
Vancouver "Pageant" will be. At the
lime of writing 1 am receiving, hourly, notices of "floats" which will be
seen in tbe great parade. I may venture to promise, however, a fine spec-

Tbe pageant-maker will bc true to
ristorical data; he will, to use a theatrical term, "preserve tbe unities,"
but he will, without anachronism, see
thai the Btately ligures and beautiful
costumes of the days of Charles 11,
the wonderful dresses of the early Indians, the wealth eef color introduced
by the Orientals, the "Garb of Old
Caul." worn by the Highlanders, the
costumes and banners of England,
Ireland and Wale?���nay. of peoples
and provinces of all nations represented in this wonderful cosmopolitan city, shall "cume into the picture."
"The Pageant of Vancouver" will
deal with the past, tbe present and
the future. It will be Historically
Retrospective, Pictorially Descriptive
and Histrionically Prophetic.

It is good for the modern man, !
whether friendly or unfriendly in his
attitude toward organized Christianity, to get down to lirst principles in
bis effort to discover wherein lies the
apparently unconquerable vitality and
tremendous strength of the Christian
church. The complexity of present
day church-life, the multiplicity of
sects, their power in money and members, their prestige and influence, and
on the other hand the presence in the
church of arrogant pride and self-
righteousness, of luxury and sloth, of
hypocrisy and lukc-warmness, all lend
to confuse us in an honest endeavor
to find those elements which constitute the living power of the church
of Christ.
To get out of thc fog let us go back
to the founder of the church, and look
into his message and method in winning bis first disciples. It is a simple
little story. John the Baptist saw
Jesus passing by and spoke of Him
as the Lamb of God. Whatever John
meant by those words they at least
held in them sufficient to interest two
who heard him so that they started
to follow Jesus. He heard their footsteps and turning said "What seek ye."
They asked him where he dwelt. Their
question was merely formal for they
were interested in the person and not
iu his house. Jesus however takes
them at their word and says, "Come,
and ye shall see."
You will notice that there is no
miracle about this story. Something
that one man thought he knew was
spoken and aroused the curiosity of
two others in regard to Jesus. They
wanted to become acquainted and took

children, and brethren, and sisters, yea
and his own life also, he cannot be
my disciple. And whosoever doth
not bear his cross and come after me
bc cannot be my disciple. And whosoever he be of yon that forsaketh
not all that be hath he cannot be my
To all who come to him today be
will say what he said to the two disciples of John, "What seek ye?" He
wants us to count the cost, to know
the truth, to know about the steep,
hard places on the trail, the turbulent
streams to cross, the dark valleys to
traverse, the tempest, the storm, and
thc battle, as well as the pleasant
places, the still waters, the refreshing
springs, the resting-places, the wise
and tender Guide and tbe glorious
land that lies beyond the last dark
valley. Come to him and he will tell
you what discipleship will cost and
if you still will follow him then he
will receive you into the fellowship
of his suffering, bis service and bis
To the question of Jesus, "What
seek ye?" the two answered, "Where
dwellest thcu?" Where docs he dwell
today? I cannot accept any answer
which would localize or limit the presence of Christ. When we speak of
him as seated at the right hand of
God it only symbolizes his majesty.
Surely it cannot mean that God revealed to us in Christ (or if you like
the Christ-spirit of God) has forsaken
the world for a time and resides in
some far-off glorious corner of infinite space. I find it impossible to
think that the spirit of Jesus Christ,
Jesus Christ in the spirit, has ever
deserted this earth or any other part
of the universe, spiritual or material.
"God is a spirit, infinite, eternal and
unchangeable." He is omnipresent
and imminent. Let us humbly say
with the Psalmist, "Whither shall I
go from thy spirit? or whither shall
I flee from thy presence? If I ascend
up into heaven thou art there; if I
make my bed in hell, behold thou
are there. If I take the wings of the
morning, and dwell in the uttermost
parts of the sea; even there shall thy
hand lead me, and thy right hand
shall hold me. If I say, surely the
darkness shall cover me; even the
night shall bc light about me. Yea,
the darkness and thc light are both
alike  to thee."
No interpretation of the Bible can
be accepted as literally true which
gives us the ridiculous picture of
Father, Son and Holy Spirit flitting
here and there through infinite space.
It is all imperfect imagery. We cannot dethrone reason in favor of tbe
fancy of thc literalist and dogmatist
who sets seasons and times rind
bounds for' God. We must not be
asked to distort, degrade, or abandon our God-given intelligence when
we come to study the scriptures. Our
intellects were given ns of God as
certainly as tbe Bible was and they
were given first. Indeed if I had to
choose I would rather lose the Bible
than lose my mind. God would not
die if tbe Bible were destroyed and
forgotten and . he could still reveal
himself  to  a   receptive   mind.    This
tei quote if yen
is in the Bible
not   teach.
Jt seems a strange statement which
Christ made in thc last chapter of
Matthew, "Lo, 1 am with you always
even unto the end of the world."
There is a paradox in it. He was
saying "Goodbye" and at the same
lime telling them that hc was not going away. The simple explanation is
this; he is teaching them and us that
it is far better for him to be present
in spirit among us than in bodily
form. To lead them and us gently to
the place where we commence to lyrn
to trust in the person and not In the
home  of  our  soul,  wc  also
must  enter into  the  house of Christ.
Me has a  fold  which we enter if wc
are his.    What are its characteristics.
1. It is the house of Truth. It is
not the house of Error, or Supersti-
lilion, or Tradition, or Popularity. It
is built on and built out of Truth
Everything is sacrificed to Truth
I ruth in (he largest sense. Truth
which includes Love. Absolute righteousness, infinite love, omnipotent
power, these are the Trinity of Truth
within whose immeasurable walls
Christ doth dwell.
2. The house of Christ is the house
of Service.    Enter it and  hardly  has
| the Master welcomed you and the
appearance, In lhe spirit and not In pe8ce which paMetH understanding
the flesh. Prof. Driimmond points ha. barely entered your soul when
out bow very few of us could get to you hear hig voice ��,,.���

Only a few thousands out of millions)and death
could   ever   come   near   him.     There [and th
would be no time for words or communion with him.   Better far that the
body should disappear so as not to
blind us to thc presence of the spirit.
Therefore it is clearly foolish to watch
for the coming of One who has never
left  the  earth.    We  shall  of course
have fuller revelations of God's will.
How they may come I do not know.
There are many  today who can tell
you how and when and where.   They
have  been   admitted  to  the  cpuncil-
hall of the    Almighty.      Is    it    not
strange bow often in  the past those
specially favored ones who had been
told  the  day  and  date  should  have
been deceived by the Almighty.  Maybe they got into the wrong council-
chamber.   Let me suggest to you who
are anxious to know when the next
revelation shall come that instead of
puzzling  your  brain  and    bothering
your neighbors you    knep    working
along faithfully on the job Christ has
given you to do, namely, the tremendous  task of making your own life
right  and' helping  others  to  do  the
same.   In order to get this thing clear,
let us suppose it true that Christ has
gone away and left us at our tasks.
Can you think that he will bc well
pleased with the man who is always
stopping work, consulting his  watch
and going down to the corner to see
if thc  Master is coming?    You arc
far more likely to hear and see whatever more hc has for you by taking
your place in the work-a-day world
and trying your best to play the man
amid the common things of life.   Far
better than to clothe yourself in white
raiment and perch upon  the  house
tops with heavenward expectant gaze.
Read this homely verse ;
mg you forth
the ways of sill
out into the wilderness
c night where the Good Shepherd is so patiently seeking and saving the sheep that were hist. You
have work to do for Christ and your
fellowmen. From the whole world at
home and abroad, from rich and poor,
from neighbor, friend, and enemy the
cry of their need comes to you. They
are weary and burdened and oppressed, sin-sick and sin-deceived, the careless who need warning, the friendless
who need a friend, sin, injustice, selfishness, lust, all the horrid brood.
Against these conditions the Son of
God goes forth to war and you must
'-'" your place in the line of battle.
"A preacher of celebrity climbed- up
a  tall   church  steeple,
To be near to God and thence to give
God's words unto the people.
In  sermon  script  be  wrote  it down
what he thought was sent from
And dropped it down on the peoples'
heads, two times one day in seven.
In   time  God  said  'Come  down  and
die,' and  he  cried  from  out  his
'Where are tlneii, Lord,' and the Lord
replied,   'Down   here   among   Unpeople.' "
Wc believe then that Christ doth
dwell among us. He is not far from
any one of us. There is only one
place from which in any true sense
ean il be said thai Christ may bc debarred and thai is tbe innermost se-
Icret place of a man's own soul. Yet
it is the plaice above all others which
Christ with beneficietit influence
would enter. The door is locked on
the inside. The Master can ceme very
close, lie may knock insistently at
the door and his voice may reach us
clearly, but we can still refuse to open
our hearts  in   response to  his  warn-
Strange but true you cannot remain in
the house of Christ unless you go
out into the battle. "I came to seek
and to save that which was lost,"
'Where I am there shall also my servant be." "If yo love me, keep my
commandment and thise is my commandment, that ye love one another."
3. Lastly, the house of Christ it
the house of Safety. A grand old
truth that we weak men and women
need to make us strong in our soul*.
It is a long, weary march through
this unknown country of our earthly
life. It gives us power to persevere
that can be obtained in no other way
to know that with Christ we are safe
through life, death, and eternity. "Let
not your heart be troubled. Because
I live ye shall live also. I give unto
them eternal life and they shall never
perish, neither shall any one pluck
them out of my hand." The world is
full of mystery, of unknown powers,
of strange alluring voices, of experiences that test men's souls and make
them cry aloud because of the bitterness of the conflict. Yet througii it
all there standeth One beside you
who never lost a battle or a soldier.
When the contest ceases and the victors arc gathered to sing the song of
triumph on the hills of God you will
be there, saved because the power of
Omnipotence in which you trusted
could not know defeat.
Some may read this message with
doubt or scorn. To those who asked
him where he dwelt, Christ said
"Come and you shall see." So to you
Christ says, "Come and learn of me."
Christ challenges you fairly to test
him before you reject him. Learn
something of his bravery, his patience,
his strength, his .gentleness, his great
over-flowing love. To learn a little
will bc to long to know more, ac-
iiuaiiilanec will grow into friendship
and friendship will ripen into love. .1
believe that all the.noblest instincts
of your being respond to tbe virtues
which Christ embodies. Let yourself
come lo i Christ. To persistently refuse to give your better nature its will
is to commit spiritual suicide. You
deny your soul the only food .by
which it can live, the deep truth, the
infinite love, the noble service, the
denial life that Christ holds out to
all who wil!  come to  him. riGHT

Ye remember the day I was married?
It was the day before that I went
up to see Father Flannigan, to rehearse a bit, so as to be in trim for
the big event.
'By the way," says Father Flannigan, says he, "have ye your marriage
license yet?"
"License?" says I; "what's that for?
I never knew one had to have a license for gettin'  married."
The idea didn't suit me at all, any-
"Do they think I'm dangerous,"
thinks I, "de be needin' a license? I'd
not have Katie know this for ten dollars. She'd never take me at all if
she knew 1 bad to be licensed."
1 kepi me thought to myself, for
Father   FIannigan*s  a  mild,  decent
man, an' I didn't want to worry him.
"It's all right, Tim," he says, seeing what I was thinking about. "All
yc have to do is to go down to thc
city hall to Mr. Schmid's office, and
he'll fix it enit fe.r ye in a minute."
Barrin' the idea of it, that seemed
easy, so I buttoned up mc coat and
started off, not le.okin' for any trouble,
as ye well know, if ye know me at
1 walked into thc big door of tbe
city hall, and I spied a boy with buttons that looked like be belonged to
thc  place, an'  I says to him :
"Where's  Schmid's  office?"
"It's right before your eyes," says
thc boy, pointin' to the next door an'
hurryin' off before any one else
could come in an' bother him.
I walked into the doorway, and
there was three or four smart-lookin'
clerks sitting round, doing nothing
unless wishin' it was noon. I walked up to one and said :
"I'm lookin' for Schniid. Is he
The clerk stared at me out of his
goggles and was goin' to say something when he could think of it, when
a stout man came out of the next room
and, seeing me waitin', he says,
pointin' to a chair :
"Come over here and sit down."
I sat down an' he sat down by a
desk, an' the clerk with the goggles
came an' sat down at the other end
of the desk, with a piece of paper in
hls hand a yard long.

of the oil belt district.
While the buying of oil stock Is on the increase, the buying public is already learning to discriminate
between the "wildcatters'' and the companies operating dn a business basis. The Pittsburg Oil Company, Limited, is composed uf business men of known reputation and ability. These men would not and

"Yer name?" says the stout man
"O'Toole," said I.
"I want your full name," says
Schmid. "Yer name's Timothy, isn't
"It is," says I. Goggles put it down
on the paper.
"Htfw old are ye?"
"None of yer business," thinks I,
but   I   said :     "Twenty-seven."
Then he wanted to know where I
was born and all about it, the clerk
takin' down  me answers  every  time.
Then he asked me had I ever bad
the measles an' the mumps and the
scarlet-fever and the rickets, an' had
I ever had any trouble of any kind.
"None," says I, "excepting some
body clcse had more at the same
"I mean trouble with yer constitution," says hei "Have ye always
been strong and well? Yc can't always tell by tbe look of a man."
I was mad, but I kept thinkin' of
Katie, an' not knowing what the old
fellow might bc able to do to me if
I wasn't decent to him.
It's hard work feelin' murder and
being decent at one and the same
time; but I kept holdin' in, though
the old scoundrel seemed to suspect
I was deceivin' him by the questions
hc asked.
lie was very inquisitive about me
father and me mother and brothers,
and all me grandmothers and grandfathers.
I answered all his questions as fast
as I could, and all the time Goggles
was  taking  them  down.
"Now," says Schmid, "we'd like to
know something about yourself." Tbe
clerk turned over tbe page an' got
some more ink in his dish.
"Better spit on yer hands," thinks
I,   lookin'   at   the   clerk.    "It's   hard
work an' ye're not used to it.    I hope
you'll last till thc end of the job."
"All right," says I;   "ask away."
"Do ye drink?" says he.
I never in mc life heard thc question asked in that tone of voice, an'
I  didn't know  how to take it. There
was  nothin'  in   sight,  anyhow.

"I can't exactly say I do," says I,
riskin' that much, but imt quite seein'
me way ahead.
"Ve mean by that," says Schmid,
"that ye do use liquors somewhat now
and again."
"You've hit it exactly," says I.
"Now and again 1 do in the way of
sociability, but met regular like se.me
I  know."
"That goes against you, I suppose
ye know," says he. "You'll have to
knock that off entirely," says he.
I wal a>kin' him where he got his
information, but thinkin' of Katie
again made me lie eld me tongue.
"Do   you   chew      tobacco?"      says
"Very little," says I, "and stopping
now and again for a day or two to
show   mc   strength."
"It would bc better if you didn't
use it at all," says Schmid.
"Knowing kind of critter," thinks
There was no end to his questions,
and some of them was very impertinent. Some of them 1 answered with
the truth, and some of them 1 answered the best 1 could, not knowing
what   he  was  at.
"Well," says hc at last, "that finishes that part. Now come in here."
]1o ye.u know I was like to be kill-
in' him? But ye know what you will
do for a girl, or maybe ye don't. I
took my hat and went into the next
room, and Schmid came in and shut
the doe.r.
Then hc got out another piece vi
paper, near as big as the lirsl, ami
set out some ink and a pen for himself.
"I'll look ye over a bit now," says
he, rs cool as a cucumber.
No one ever said thc like of that
to mc before; but I think bc had mc
hypnotized, for I stood still like a
blind horse and let him size me up,
winch he did very easy and deliberate.
"Open your mouth," says he���and
I opened it. If he'd said "Unscrew
your neck," 1 suppose I'd made a try
at it.
Every once in a while he'd stop and
put something down on the paper
and dry it with the blotter, taking
all the time he needed.
"That's all  right so far," says  he.
"I  believe  you're  a  strong man,  Mr.
O'Toole."    He  was  right about  that,
"Now, off with thc clothes!"
"Off with the clothes?" says I.
"Yes," says h��.; "strip, an' be quick
about iti"
If there's any virtue in self-conlreel,
I'll bc canonized yet. I swallowed
me pride an' began to take off me
Then hc began, and me silly and
helpless. You know how it is, never
mind how good a man ye are, with
your clothes on, ye feel small, if ye're
in the presence of a stranger, with
nothing on hut underclothes.
Ile got out a hammer and thumped
me e;hest. and he hitched a hose on
me and listened througii the end of
He had me stoop and bend this way
and that, and he hunted for spavins
anil ring-bones, and he had me jump
up on the table and jump off again,
and other tricks like a trained dog,
some of which I didn't like at all.
"And now," says hc, "I'd like to
have yc run hard around the room a
few times till I tell you to stop!"
Off I galloped and come round to
the grand stand in very good form.
He seemed to think I was a good one,
and I thought he might be givin me
a blue ribbon.
He listened to mc insides once
more and gave me one or two more
laps with the hammer, an' then he
says :
"Now yer can be dressing yerself."
While I putting ou my clothes he
sat down and was fixing up the paper, wriliner down all my fine points.
I'm thinking, and taking me grand
total. When he had that all done he
looked up and he says :
"That will do for todav. Tomorrow afternoon ye can come in for the
reading and the writing examination."
"Tomorrow!" says I. "Tomorrow

Every Thanksgiving Day there is
a road race in Vancouver. This is no
new thing. Here is a picture that
will interest old Londoners. "The
Wonder"���he was known by no other
A Running Man of Long Ago
name���starting from old Vauxhall
Gardens and making a pace which
even our Vancouver athletes would
find it difficult to beat.
"Marriage license!" says he. "What
have I got to do with yer marriage
"I should say ye had a great deal
to do with it," says I, "by the way
ye've been goin' on the last two hours.
And if it wasn't for Katie I'd never
stood your insolence."
"Look here," says Schmid, "ye come
in here to get examined for the force,
didn't ye? and ye'll have to take the
same examination we put all the men
"What force is that?" says I, trying to speak easy and makin' a bad
fist of it.
"Police force, of course," says he,
"or don't you know what you're about
at all?"
"Whoever said anything about police force?" says J. "And if ye'll
have it straight from me I'll tell you
I don't know any meaner lot of crooks
than them, unless it bc thc doctors,
and, as near as I can make out, you
are on both jobs."
We stood looking at each other like
a couple of cats on a fence, for neither
of us could get a word more to the
te.ngne. I was the firsl t'i get my
pi e se nee of mind, us I think Schmid
will  remember  it  if yc  ask  him.
"You hope I didn't harm the man,
do ye?"^
I don't know as you'd call it harm
at all. It's likely it was the best thing
in the world for him. Anyhow, ye
can judge about thc harm for volir-
I hit him twice, good ones, ami
very hearty. A man's no business to
be the stupid that man was. It's bad
for the public safety.
Seeing Schmid was finished wilh
his questions about my health, I took
the liberty to get me hat and come
out the way I went in. I had a mind
to take a rap at the clerk with the
goggles, and maybe it's as well for
thc kid hc was out of sight.
Anyhow, I got out without doing
any more harm, excepting for breaking the glass in the door, more by my
haste than by intention.
Why didn't they arrest me?
Well, 1 think they would if it wasn't
for Father Flannigan . He's a great
man and a good one as well.
I had to go back and tell him, of
coures, I hadn't got me license, and
wished he would repeat the directions
to me once more.
"Ye had trouble in finding the
place?"   says   Father   Flannigan.
"Well, not exactly trouble," says
I. 'hut I'm wishing I'd rsjnenibercd
the name of that man a hit better. It
would saved mc bothering some that
was busy," says I.
Seeing that was getting no further
with the difficulty, and the time being
short, and me not daring to go back-
to the city hall alone, I had to up and
tell Father Flannigan the whole story.
The good man looked displeased,
yc can imagine, and a bit puzzled and
worried, but he says he thought he
could lix it for me somehow.
So off he goes, and by and by back
hc comes, very red in the face, but
smiling, and he says if Id come back
with him 1 could have my marriage
So 1 went down with Father Flannigan and got me paper without any
more disturbance of any kind. It was
for fear of Father Flannigan or they'd
never let me had it at all.
For Father Flannigan's not only a
good man and a great man, but a determined man as well.
But ye needn't think I heard no
more  of me  friend  Schmid.
Hc wasn't dead by any means. The
next d��y after the wedding Father
Flannigan asks me on thc quiet to
step down to the city hall with him
and uring along what money I can
well spare.
We went into a bit of an office,
and the man at the desk asked a few
question,  which   I  answered  truthful-
Then he says I can pay ten dollars, and no more questions asked.
I passed him out the money, and
went out without even havin' a receipt  for it.    But that  was all  right.
I don't mind the ten thc two little
pokes I gave Schniid cost me. That
was only five dollars apiece. If I had
plenty of money I'd���but then there's
no use wishing for what ye haven't
