Support of Municipal Ownership���Other

South Vancouver during Recent Years-
Mr. H. B. A. Vogel Emphazises the
Importance of the Location of Industries
The marvelloui development of
South Vancouver during recent year.
at iln- eloquent theme of several
tepeakera on  Wednesday  when  mem-
ers of the South Vancouvei Council   Souih Vancouver Board of Trade
i d the harbor commissioners for the
North Ann eel the Fraser Kiver were
ike Km ms of the Progress Club. The
i tensible purpose oi the gathering
was to hear an address on "Municipal
Ownership of Public Utilities" by
Knee Kerr, and the opportunity was
taken by several speakers lee make
mure widely known the pasl progress
ami future development eif the municipality.
Besides Reeve Kerr the principal
speakers were Councillor J. J. Willi, rs and Mr. II. II. A. Vogel ami
there was a good attendance of representative men of South Vancouver,
lu the course of his address on
"Municipal Ownership eif Public L'tili-
ties," Reeve Kerr informed his hearer- that South Vancouver Council
was unanimously in favor of ils adoption. Municipal ownership, he said.
practically meant thai public utilities
would be owned by the people for
the people. These utilities would in-
I'luilc street car service, electric light.
gas, water, public wharfs, telephones,
industrial   sites     and     sireet     paving
Referring t��> the public and economic advantages "f civic ownership,
Reeve Kerr cited cases in Great Britain and other countries where the
system had worked with highly sat-
isfactOry results. In the Old Coun-
Irj such cities as London. Liverpool.
Derby, Conway. Glasgow, Devonport,
Norwich, Perth and Wolverhampton
had adopted municipal ownership.

K'- and electric lighting would be
cuisiderally  reduced  in  price.
Hr did not think, said Mr. Kerr,
thai the extent and importance of the
Pari ihat Soulh Vancouver plays in
tin fortunes of Greater Vancouver
w,ii sufficiently realized. The quiet
hin wonderful development of Seeuth
Vancouver, even during a period of
financial stringency, had imt been excelled by any other part of the pen-
'nsula. He believed that South Vancuuver by owning her own industrial
waterfrontage   and     industrial      sites
would greatly encourage industries to
locate in ihe municipality.
Special attention was devoted in
lln- remarks of Mr. H, It. A. Vogel
ie. iln- greal future before iln- Xorth
Arm nf ihe Fraser River a- an indus-
tria.1 centre. South Vancouver hail
some e.f the best siu-s in iln- province
available for industrial purposes, and
il was industries that were uieesl urgently needed al the present time.
The Fraser River was destined, he
-aid, in become one of ilie greatest
harbors 'if this continent.
Councillor J.    J.    Wilbers    spoke
strongly in support nf municipal owner-hip, referring I.i the general feeling   throughout   ihe   municipality   in
its   favor.
Mr. Hugh M. Fraser Entertains Number  of West  Burnaby  Liberal:,
Al lln- home of Mr. Hugh M. Eraser. "Beaufort," llurnaby, was held on
Monday evening a splendid banquet,
the occasion being the annual supper of thc West Uurnaby Liberals.
Members of the executive and offi-
cers eif the association were the invited guests. Mr. Robert Williams
presided and proposed thc loyal toast
which was Imnnred with stalwart vocal expression, and the "Maple Leaf
Forever" resounded immediately after  the  imperial  national  anthem.
With splendid feeling lhe te.asl.
"Our Leader, Sir Wilfrid Laurier,"
.vas proposed by Mr. Tims Mayne.
and responded tn by Messrs. Jnhn
Churchland   and    Bryan.
Mr. Thomas Dickie for Reeve
"If the people want me, I will take the lielu." is said to have b:en
the statement made by Mr. Thomas Dickie when ssked if he would
run  for  Reeve of South  Vancouver this year.
Petitions are being circulated throughout the Municipality and
are being signed by many who believe thtt Mr. Dickie would make
a desirable chief magistrate. These documents will be presented to
the well-known retired lawyer, praying that he beccme a candidate
for the position held for two terms by  Mr. James  A.  Kerr.
Mr. Dickie is said to be a man of large rtRans and would like'.y
give all his time to the position if elected. Ke is. however, a man cf
great modesty, and would not, as an individual, p'.2ce himself to the
fore. He has had a long experience in municipal life, wss for many
years a member of the Manitoba bar, and has large business interests
in South Vancouver and the city.
It is likely that Mr. Dickie would oppose incorporation, immediate
action in the securing of municipally owned public utilities and would
declare for a retrenchment in all departments of the municipal administration.

Passes the Women's Suffrage Bill
The members uf ihis popular institution met in session again on Tuesday. Owing to prior engagements
several of the prominent members
sent apologies for their absence.
The members of the independent
party were in force as usual and took
advantage of their numerical strength
to press the government .cry closely and it was by a very narrow margin  that  the    situation    was    saved.
After preliminaries, passing of accounts, etc., the attention uf the
hnuse was occupied with the motion
of Mr. Charleton dealing with '.he
government providing land in the
clearing of which they find work fnr
(he vast number of unemployed.
The government contended that a
number of '.he honorable members
own constituents, whu had been vnl-
untarily unemployed in Nanaimo,
were at present engaged at land
clearing on governmenl land in llurnaby and being fed, clothed and lodged
at the government boarding house
there. The method was not popular
nor profitable and a vigorous demand
was being made by their comrades
that they be immediately discharged
and return to their homes to again
subsist nn despised charity. Furthermore, the majority ol the unemployed, it was contended, was not of the
class to which land clearing and logging would offer much Inducement.
Despite these statements, and the
offer of the Premier to Consider a
private member's bill dealing with
the land settlement question on a
broad and radical basis, the members
of the independent party took advantage of their number to carry thc
motion urging the advisability of improving lands for settlement and thus
giving  men  work  to  do.
The House then took up the Wu-
mtn's Suffrage Bill and Clause 2 and
3 dealing with residential and racial
qualifications   wcre   carried  by  small
majorities. Clause 4 and 5 were after
vigorous debate deleted as being unnecessary to the wording or working
of the act.
On motion of Mr. Hurry, of the
independent labor party, an additional
clause was added making it imperative for each voter to obtain an identification card to be used when travelling from one district to another.
The bill was now passed up for its
third and final reading at the next
Mr. Lamond then introduced the
Incorporation of Municipalities Act
and it was given its first reading, but
as the hour was late the House postponed any discussion until next Tuesday night at 8 n'clnck, when a full
attendance of all parties is particularly requested.
The  following  is  the bill :

What Book is More Used Than The
Telephone Directory?
Advertising space is valuable, because the book is in use
by everybody, on duty constantly, every day in the year.
It is the only medium that cannot be read at one sitting
and then laid aside and forgotten.
The Telephone and the Directory never part company.
Side by side with the means of advertising, it is the means
of making the sale.

was taken by the cross-benches of

Western unionists would expect of

on  Vancouver   Island are  concerned.
On Wednesday last President J.
I.'. Watters ami Vice-president Fred
Bancroft waited upon Hem. C. I. Deig-
hcrty. Minister of Justice, Ottawa,
and made a strong plea for a reduction of the heavy sentences imposed
on the Xanainiii strikers, already
convicted by Judge Howay.
Without waiting to be asked, the
executive (oftncil members of the
Congress intimated t" the Minister
eef Justice that every branch of organized labor in Canada would support thc plea they were making 'en
behalf of the imprisoned miners, and
that  the nation-wide  campaign    for
their   release   had   eenly   commenced

Maist "' us iri our ain mind hae
ideas o' what's responsible for the

It's the easiest thing in the world
tac  say  it's the bum cooncillors we
at the dose it wis defeated by a single vote. The minority say
they're gaun lae demaund a referendum on the questyin so that the rate-
leaver- should decide the questyin.

There's an' auld sayin' there's better men inside the gaols than OOtside
an' maybe it wudna hurt the coon-
cilhir-' feelins if somebody telt them
there were better men ootside the
cooncil chamber than inside.
Tae come tae the pint, hooever,
I believe what's mainly responsible
for a lot o' the bad management is
the want o' co-operashuu between
the cooncil an' the ratepeyers.
* * +
When a questyin o' sic importance,
wi' its tremendous potentialities, as
oot aiu beloved Carter-Cotton wud
say, comes afore the cooncil it should
be discussed wi' the ratepeyers in
eepen meetin' afore bein' rudely pushed aside. One or two meetins wherein the proposers o' the nioshun wud
be enabled tae lay their views afore
the people wud dae a whole lot o'
guid in educatin' the general public
on questyins they hat- only a crude
idea on.
It has come tae me pretty strong
that the main reason i"r Bowser
turnin' doon annexashun wis the fact
that wi' Sooth Vancoover bein' amalgamated tae Vancoover it wud pit
quite a bit o' p<joer in the haunds ������'

slmnists hae taen hert an' think they'll

Ihey tell yae that Sooth Vancoover

That's an indisputable fact but they
dinna show yae where they're gaun

It is said that the tatc Father Stanton once met a drunken man who
was clinging for support to a lamppost. The parson approached him.
and in a friendly way suggested that
it would be better for him if he took
less liquor. The wretched man turned unsteadily, still clinging to the
lamp-post, and said: "I am a teetotaller. Yes, a real one! But I'm not
one of those bigoted fellows."

As Attorney-General Bowser priilcs himself on his
(.���semblance to Napoleon and models himself on thc
,'reat Corsican, it is not surprising to find Itim display-
ng the dictatorial style and methods which character-
ze bis conduct at Victoria. Probably his chief regret
s that he is not yet first consul hut only second in the
government of British Columbia.
Then, sad to state, there is the Mem. 11. K. Voting,
vhn is minister of education, ami who, therefore.
nighl to know better, haughtily declining to attend
he recent convention of the School Trustees of British Columbia. Was lie not the very man who ought
to have attended such a convention? But Dr. Young,
like his confreres in the autocratic government at Victoria, evidently thinks that he holds an unassailable
position in office, and can afford to ignore the expressed interests of mere school irttstces.
There may he a rude a wakening in store for those
complacent office holders at Victoria, and at no very
distant date. In the meantime they are having plenty
of rope.
a T the time of writing it is not known what exact-
A ly will be the net result of the visit of the South
Vancouver deputation to Sir R. McBride as regards
annexation. It may be safely assumed that the project will be turned down. The members of the delegation will he treated by the Premier in his usual sauve
manner. lie will tell them that he has the highest respect for them as representing so ambitious a municipality as South Vancouver, lie will express his entire
sympathy with the legitimate aspirations of its residents But he will gently intimate that the government is not prepared to grant the necessary legislation
at present. Possibly by and by. a few years hence,
he will say, South Vancouver may have its great ambition gratified by annexation to the city of Vancouver.
As to the city of Vancouver, its council does not
seem at present prepared to annex South Vancouver.
Its mayor and aldermen talk indefinitely of annexation
a "few vears hence," or "one of these days." The
city, in fact, is having some difficulty in managing
its'own affairs. Speaking a few days ago on the proposal of engaging "four able men" for the positions
of controllers, Mayor Baxter stated: "The board of
control plan would be of great benefit as the city grows
larger, for one of these days we will take in South
Vancouver and other territory, and a council of thirty
or forty aldermen would be hard to handle."
The relative merits of annexation and incorporation
will remain a matter of dispute. There can be no dispute as to the danger of delay in settling the question
of annexation versus incorporation. It seems a question really of annexation indefinite years hence, or im
mediate incorporation.
Incorporated as a city, South Vancouver would at
once "enter into its own kingdom." As compared with
the present antiquated municipal system, it may be
argued that incorporation would greatly enhance the
prestige of South Vancouver. Compared with annexation, the new council would have greater powers 0f
local control and development.
Advantages may easily be cited in favor of annexation to thc city of Vancouver. That such eventually,
"years hence," will be the destiny of South Vancouver
need not be now questioned. But iu the meantime,
while incorporation appears to be of the most immediate necessity, it is well to bear in mind its indisputable advantages. Some of the most salient of these
benefits cannot be very well exaggerated. Incorporation for one thing will mean the speedier development
of that part of the North Arm contiguous to South
Vancouver. It will enable the council to give preferential attention to the location of industries within the
municipality. It will obviate the risk of increased
taxation in the direction of Vancouver's present high
rate. And not the least advantage will be the increased prestige of South Vancouver as a city by which its
borrowing powers will be greatly strengthened.
It is, however, the lowering of the cost of farm and
���anleii produce that the new service should help to
���ring about. This will affect South Vancouver as well
is the city. The Delta is probably the most prolific
���art of th'.' lower mainland as regards vegetables and
roots, while the cattle, sheep and swine raiseil th re
ne unequalled throughout the pre evince.
While the produce brought over from I.adner will
it first chiefly go to Vancouver market, the new service lh ruld eventually promote the speedy establishment eif a market in South Vancouver. This project,
although apparently "l abeyance is more than ever
desirable. It would be another factor in reducing the
cost of living. In the meantime, or as so >n as the new
ferry and motor service is in full swing, some of the
tradesmen of Prase* Avenue should materially benefit in the matter of quicker, fresher, if not cheaper,
supply of produce.
As regards transportation from Woodward's Landing and South Vancouver to the city, an official of
the 1!. C. E. R. informed the "Chinook" that increased
facilities wee in contemplation.
WE should not like to say that the present government at Victoria is quite so had in its methods
as Tammany Hall at its worst. Even Tammany Hall
in its early days, before Boss Tweed gave the organization its evil sway, was comparatively public-spirited
and just in its political influence. But long years of
power and the assiduous spread of graft among Tammany's leaders begat their inevitable consequences. In
similar manner, the unbridled power of the McBride
government at Victoria has developed into a political
despotism of the worst kind.
A big and disproportionate majority is a bad thing
for any party government. Unrestrained and dominant, with no controlling nor compelling influences of
a near equal opposition, the lust of power at Victoria
has developed a kind of autocratic demeanor in its
leading lights. Some of them, such as Premier McBride, Attorney-General Bowser and Hon. Dr. H. E.
Young, minister for education, appear to have lost
all sense of proportion in their own estimation of their
national importance.
Premier McBride, for instance, astounded all Canada by making a party political speech at a recent meeting of the Canadian Club at which the Governor-General, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and Mr. Borden were present. In over-riding the generally accepted rules for
such non-political gatherings, the premier was only
exhibiting the latest development of his imperial manner.   "I am Sir Oracle, let no man speak."
CONSIDERABLE exception must be taken to part
of the recent report of the industries section of
the Vancouver Progress Cluh. The Progress Club
has done good work in advertising Vancouver. It
has recently shown a disposition to look beyond the
mere confines of the city. It has had the good sense
especially of having this week a "South Vancouver
Day" when Reeve Kerr and other members of the
Council and Board of Trade gave their views on the
"municipal ownership of public utilities."
In the report referred to, however, the committee
has come to a hasty and too sweeping conclusion. It
states that it is hard for Vancouver to compete with
such cities as Calgary, Regina, Edmonton, Saskatoon
and other cities in the matter of industries, "owing
among other causes, to the fact that there are no
cheap sites on this peninsula." Applied to land within the city boundaries this dogmatic statement might
be near truth. But as embracing the whole peninsula,
or Greater Vancouver, the assertion is altogether misleading, unjust to neighboring municipalities and calculated to discourage prospective manufacturers from
making enquiries as to sites therein.
It is a pity the members of this Progress Club committee did not consult some of the members of the
Vancouver Board of Trade before publishing so rash
and detrimental a statement. They would have found
that even free sites on Burrard Inlet for industrial
purposes had been lately offered to the Board. They
would also have learned that Mr. Blair, the secretary
of the Board of Trade had recently referred enquirers to desirable sites in South Vancouver and that the
immediate location of two industries had resulted.
This Progress Club committee would have been further well advised in consulting the Boards of Trade
of South Vancouver, Burnaby, Point Grey and Richmond, before assuming knowledge of conditions in the
whole of the peninsula. Iu all of these municipalities
are to be found cheap and most desirable industrial
sites. On the North Arm of the Fraser and in various
parts of South Vancouver sites can be obtained cheap
and reasonable enough, having regard to the advantages of location.
In another part of this report the members of this
industries committee tender some rather belated and
sapient advice. They "suggest to the councils, hoard
of trade, progress clubs and candidates for future civic
honors in Point Grey, South Vancouver and Burnaby
the advisability of purchasing sites and leasing property to bona fide manufacturers." All this the municipalities have already considered and steps have been
taken in the direction indicated. The advice given to
other public bodies in this report may be useful if
somewhat theoretical. In the meantime, what practical good has this industries committee, or any other
in Vancouver done to induce manufacturers to locate
in Greater Vancouver?
There is at least one important thing that could lie
done. A list should be drawn up of industrial opportunities in Greater Vancouver. It should he so compiled as to show what industries are already established and where, while the different industries for which
there are openings, and the districts most suitable,
should be clearly given. Other information, such as
the advantages of different localities, water, lighting
and transportation facilities, suggest themselves. Such
information should not be difficult to obtain, and when
compiled and printed should be sent broadcast to industrial centres in the Dominion, the United States
and Great Britain. It is knowledge of this kind that
prospective manufacturers want, and it would at least
help in inviting enquiries for further information.
IT is possible to take too pessimistic a view of the
financial stringency more or less prevalent
throughout the world. Here in British Columbia, from
being over optimistic in the past we are sometimes
now disposed to go to the other extreme.
There are welcome indications that the worst is past
and that a general loosening up of the situation in this
province is in sight. It is satisfactory, for instance, to
learn that the Burnaby Council has received an offer
this week to take immediately $250,000 worth of 6 per
cent, three-year treasury certificates with a sixty days'
option on the balance of the issue of $1,000,000. I laving regard to the present state of the money market
this offer may be considered a hopeful sign of financial convalescence.
It is also an encouraging symptom that a number
of prominent London financiers have recently expressed their opinion that the money market was gradually
but surely becoming easier. In this connection it is
significant that a member of one of the leading banking firms in London conceded that the incorporation
of South Vancouver as a city wouhl tend to increase
its financial credit.
Another element which should materially help to
relieve the situation is the harvesting of the crops in
the prairie provinces and, to a lesser degree, in this
ptovince. The circulation of money should, therefore,
be considerably brisker throughout the West generally, and particularly, it may be hoped, in Greater Vancouver, within an early period.

IN MEDICINE HAT some little time ago an agita

wanting to change the name as too reminiscent of Gilbert's lines commencing, "Chin, chin, Chinaman."

SEVERAL ALDERMEN and pressmen of Edmonton a few days ago had a tough experience on a visit
to outlying oil wells having to walk about 70 mile-
through brush and mud, returning to Edmonton "footsore, weary, tired, thirsty, half-starved and exhausted." This comes of soaring too high. If like tin-
councillors of South Vancouver they had been content with visiting their water wells all would have

THE SHAKING OF dice for cigars is a popular
sport in Vancouver. In Rossland last week Judge
Plewman, who probably has a sweet tooth himself,
decided that in British Columbia throwing dice for
candy was not illegal, even apparently on a Sunday.
IT was announced a few days ago that the new Ladner���Woodward ferry service would begin on or
before today, November 15. Although the service is
starting somewhat late in the year, its inauguration
is of the utmost importance to South Vancouver as
veil as other parts of the peninsula.
Both passengers and freight must reach Vancouver
via Fraser Avenue, now one of the principal roads in
south Vancouver and destined to be also one of the
leading business thoroughfares of Greater Vancouver.
The new service will thus give added publicity to the
nunicipality. Some cheap industrial sites which have
���scaped  the  attraction  of  some  "industrial  commit-
ees" may even be discovered and appropriated.

the lady, who was leaning forward,
jlbows on knees and face between
hands, did neet perceive this convulsion   of  nature.

Simple  Monograms  Best  for   Linens
The womaii who likes needlework
enjoys marking ber oWn household
linen, Tlie day has gone by when
the young engaged girl spent hours
and hours working over the lingerie;
for a little price the shops now sell
beautiful lingerie that is made with
more style and smartness than any
girl could make herself. The bountiful trousseau is no longer the order
of the day* so it is foolish for the
engaged girl to spend days working
over line frocks and ihirt waists.
Hut there is no law against a plentiful supply of well-marked household
linen. To be sure, there are changing styles today, even in tablecloths
and pillow-cases; but the girl who
likes to use a needle and who wants
to feel that she is contributing ��ome-
thing toward the charm of her new
home can mark and embroider all the
linen she has time for and is fortunate enough to possess without fearing to accumulate too big a supply.
A certain simplicity characterizes
the lettering of the finest household
linen. Monograms arc in good taste,
but they must lack ornatcness. The
three letters���sometimes only two are
used���are joined together very simply. Often the letters touch each other
only  at  the  point.
Plain script, worked in satin stitch
is in greater favor than any other
sort of lettering, and really seems
more in keeping with line damask and
other table linen. Block letters are
also used a good deal, and two or
three of them, formed into a simple
monogram, are very effective.

The Proper Way to Iron Table Linen
Before ironing a,tablecloth pull the
cloth straight iu order to make the
edges .and corners even. ,It should
be ironed with a heavy iron;' preferably on a large table, where free
space makes it possible to have a
large surface exposed without the
necessity of constantly. shifting the
material. Always iron the linen half
dry on the wrong side and entirely
dry on the right to prevent mussing
xyhile folding. Tablecloths' should be
filded in half lengthwise, then in
quarters lengthwise. These creases,
thus made, may be pressed with the
iron. The cross folds are usually not
ironed, so that they will not be specially pronounced when the cloth is
spread on the tabic. Napkins having
been ironed on both sides should be
folded in half, salvages together, all
edges and corners even; the half is
folded in half, then 'thc'-hemgHrtirWise
folds in half crosswise.1 In this fold
thc upper half should bc drawn back
about one-fourth inch, so that the
edges and corners will be even whejn
the last fold is made. Small napkins may be folded in three lengthwise
and three cross wise folds instead of
four. Traycloths, if folded at all-, are
folded in thirds, crosswise.
Doilies and centrepieces are not
folded. If they are large circles or
squares they should be rolled on a
paper roll. One can buy a cardboard
mailing tube for this use. If the
doilies are fringed brush with a fringe
brush, which may be bought for thc
purpose, or in its absence a strong
whisk broom, rather than combing.
The fringe will look newer and better if the broken fibres, due to wear
and tear, are trimmed even with the
fringe  proper,
Present Fashions and the Short Girl
Perhaps there is no one who puzzles and worries more over the question of designs In clothes than the
short woman or girl who so ardently
longs for thc graceful lines of her tail
and  dignified  sister.
Hut, surely on looking at'ound the
shops this season one is almost inclined to believe that Dame Fashion
had specially this very same 'woman
jn mind, when she so thoughtfully
tlcsigncd some of the new details of
I The newest designs suit the little
woman, although she should, except
ji) rare cases, adapt the long and
gracefully clinging draped skirt, and
leave the tunics and flounces to hcr
taller sister, who can so well carry
off  these   styles.
e The gown or blouse designed with
long front opening and high frill rising in the back in modernized Elizabethan style and falling on each
side of a dainty collarless yoke or
waistcoat when worn by a short girl
tends to make her appear taller than
she is, and somehow this soft and'attractive neck fixing just suits her.
The pretty sash, which this year
promises to outdo all former sashes,
when draped high at the waist, and
let fall at thc front or left side, gives
to the wearer a decidedly taller and
more dignified look. The sash truly
belong to the little woman, as docs
also the attractive fichu falling gracefully over the shoulders and brought
to a deep V in front.
In fact, all this season's neck fixings seem to become thc woman of
short statue. The collarless blouse,
which promises to reign supreme this
winter, is a real boon to thc girl in
question. Cut in either V or TJ shape
it tends to give the lacking appearance of height, whiFe the bareness of
the throat is most becoming to the
girl who cannot stand a high collar.
And after all, a collar to be stylish
and trim looking must bc high and
well curved, therefore it really belongs to the tall woman.
The sleeves, too, this year are particularly suited to the little woman,
for in spite of the collarless necks
many of the newest gowns, both for
morning and afternoon wear, show
the tight-fitting long sleeve.
���*   *   ��
. Nearly all blouses snown in the
9hops have low collars. There are
many kinds, of new collars in the
market, and all are large and broad
except the adapted Japanese collar,
which is about two inches wide, rolls
back on the gown, runs to the waist
in a negligent line and stands away
from thc back of the neck for two
Month of Marriages
In Holland, it may not be generally
known, the first four Sundays of November arc observed as fete days, being known respectively as Review,
Decision,   Purchase  and   Peissession.
All these titles have a matrimonial
significance. November is regarded
as the month for marriage, and many
mure nupital knots arc tied at this
period than at any other, the excellent reason being that agricultural
pursuits of the year are over, and the
yening people arc free to indulge in
the social pleasantries denied them
(luring the more strenuous periods of
the  year.
Review Sunday is so called owing
to the fact that after Church service,
which everybody is expected tei attend, there is a parade held in the
village, which is attended by the
youths and maidens, who gaze at one
another, but are not allowed to speak.
Decision Sunday is so named because
the young men seeking partners in
life's battle approach the maidens of
their choice. The man gives a cere-
muuial bow, and from its reception he
is left to judge whether his advances
are  welcome.
Thc most important Sunday of the
month, however, is undoubtedly Purchase Sunday, when, if the suit has
progressed during the week, the consent of tbe girl's parents is solicited.
This gained, the happy couple attend
their place of worship on Possession
Sunday as an officially engaged pair.

Good Times Ahead!
Folk talk of good old times
And make one feel quite glum;
Come, brighten up, and wear a smile,
The best days are to come.
You   cannot   eat  your  cake
And also have it, too,
But,  if you  wish to  be advised,
Then   share  it  while  it's  new.
Do not anticipate
Hard times and weary days,
For oft the unexpected comes.
And worry never pays.
We  cannot live  on  air���
Wc  cannot live without.
And isn't nature very kind
1 To spread so much about?
Iif it should happen that
Things go from bad to worse,
ihen, when your last red cent is gono,
And nothing's in your purse,
Just think of Sunny Jim I
Copy  his smile, and hum
Or whistle o'er a cheery tune���
The  best days are  to come.
Some  people  bear  three kinds
Of  worry  on  their  ways;
All they have had, all they have now,
And all they'll have���some day.
'Tis  better  far  to  hope,
To trust and never fear;
Don't  trouble trouble, but just  make
"rlie best of now and here."

Legend of the Clay Belt
In  thc garden of Ontario, where the
soil  is  rich and  mellow,
Where the fruit grew, and the roots,
And  the grain was  tall and yellow,
Where the pumpkins were the largest,
And the squashes were the biggest,
And  the  melons were  the sweetest,
And  the horses were the  fleetest,
Where the winter snow was whitest,
And   the  summer  sun  was brightest,
And  thc gentle  shower from heaven
fell  just  upon   thc  just;
And the farmer rose at sunrise,
And toiled till sunset likewise,
And   rested  on  the   Sabbath,  for    in
God   he   put   his   trust;
It   happened   that   a   fairy   who   was
travelling   came   that  way,
And   through   the  gardener's  garden
and the farmer's farm did stray,
And she longed to linger longer, but,
of course,  she  could not stay,
Hut  a  handful  of  that  mellow  earth
the  fairy  took  away.
Straight to the north she glided, as
she sang a merry song,
She crossed thc blue Laurenfians, for
the fairy's wings were strong,
And  in  the northern    districts    shc
threw the soil away,
Nqw, there's sixteen million acres of
the   very  finest   clay.

He rendered yeoman service to thc
movement, which he left to others to
carry forward. He lived and work-
til hard from early life onward, and
gained a certain amount of fame outside politics. Hc had a brilliant record at the Bar, and in thc literature
of his time, too, he left a mark which,
it would have been imagined, would
have been more enduring than it has
He vvas "a marvellous boy." At
the age of 19 years he sold his trans-
latieeii of Ovid for $300, one of a number eif works in which he showed
great taste as well as scholarship of
a high degree. He found time to
write books so varying in subject as
land transfer and the history of Italy.
His three-volume novels created more
than ordinary interest, though they
wcre fated to be overshadowed by
the works of Lever and Carleton.
Sir Gilbert Parker Tells Edmonton a
Few Things
With that modesty so characteristic of novelists, and politicians, too,
Sir Gilbert Parker told Edmonton a
few things when hc was there the
other day. What struck him first and
most forcibly was that the streets
were greatly in advance of those of
its rival, Calgary, which, of course,
the Edmonton newspapers could not
refrain   from  putting  into  cold  type.
Sir Gilbert attended the opening of
the Appeal Court, and was pleased
with the interior arrangements of the
Cemrt House, but regretted that the
pavement surroundiii" the building
sheiuld be left in so unfinished a state.
Before committing himself ou the
pavement question, Sir Gilbert should
wait  until   he  sees  Montreal.
A "Sylvan University"���that is
what Sir Gilbert called Alberta's new
seat of learning. He was shown
abeiut by Dr. Tory, who, not long
ago, was a professor at McGill. The
doctor showed his guest a plan of the
university buildin so that he could
form some idea of the building as it
will be when completed. All met Sir
Gilbert's approval except a tower
which he advised Dr. lory "to cut
During his visit to the University
library, Sir Gilbert was told by the
librarian, that Dr. Rutherford had
presented a full set of Sir Gilbert's
work to the library. "That is very
good of him. very good," he remarked, "but I hope it is a decent set," he
exclaimed in an after thought. He
was satisfied, however, with Dr.
Tory's description that it was a good

eer Queen's, where the Scottish system is followed and the student has to

Salaries and Public Offices
Mr. Daniels, United States Secretary of the Navy was in Atlantic City
the other day and was asked how, in
view of the fixed charges and anti-
capital Impairment theories now so
loudly proclaimed in Washington, he
could venture to stop at an expensive
beach   front  hotel.     He  replied :
"It is not a question with me whether I can get alemg with my salary, because 1 have to get along with it.
If it was but $5,000 I would make it
do of necessity, but it is correspondingly agreeable to have it $12,000."
In commenting on this the New-
York Tribune says, "Mr. Daniels talks
as if going on the Chautauqua circuit with minstrels and prodigies were
not the inalienable right of a thrift.

The   Father of  Yiddish  Literature
A man who had earned for himself
the title of "Father of Yiddish Literature," died a few days ago in New
York. He was Elia Kum Zunzer,
and he kept a little printing shop on
the East Side of New York.
He was a Russian Jew, and had
lived only three years in the United
States, having removed from Russia
in   1910.
He was born in Yilna, Russia, on
October 28. 1836.
He wreite his first verses at the age
.if 13. His fame soon grew, and he
became known as Eliakum, the wed-
ding bard. lie married and seemed
to be on the road tei an honored and
happy life. Nine children were born,
when iu 1871 the cholera came and
wiped out his family. First the children and then his wife.
Her great grief ripened his song,
and his best songs were written in
the period just succeeding. He wrote
also one of the first Yiddish dramas,
"The Sale of Joseph." He married
again, anel another periled eif happi-
n i - - came that brightened his weirk.
lie was then recognized as the father of  Yiddish  literature.
Riots, in which many Jews were
slain and plundered, came in 1882,
and more songs were written by Zunzer in an effort to hearten his people. He wreite then "The Pyramid"
and  "The  Eternal  People."
Finally, lie became no popular as
lhe Jewish national poet that the
Government looked with suspicion at
his influence over the masses, and he
came to this continent.
Queen     Victoria     Preferred     Short
What is the ideal length for a sermon? The question is raised by Dean
Hole in Ilis "Memories." By way of
illustration, he tells a story of a
sheriff's chaplain who had once asked a judge what was the proper
length of a sermon. "Well, twenty
minutes," was the answer, "with a
leaning to the side of mercy." Thai
is advice which Queen Victoria would
have heartily approved. In 1867 the
Queen presented a pulpit-glass to the
Chapel Savoy; and it was timed for
exactly   18  minutes.     There   was   no
| mistaking the hint. If you wanted
to   please   the   Queen   you   stopped
I preaching at  18 minutes.
Gladstone,   who   never   omitted   at-
| tending service twice every Sunday,
had his own idea of what a sermon
shouhl be like and the effect it should
have upon its hearers. Sir Algernon
West recordl that one morning, coming away from the Chapel Royal, the
G.O.M. "exclaimed against a very
beautiful sermon of Mr. White's, of
the Savoy, 'because,' he said, 'he has
excited my brain by his quotations,
and  given  me anything but  the  rest
which  is  what  I  want and expect to
lind  in  church.' "
John  Wesley's  Rules
John Wesley had many rules to
make the scrmems of his preachers
popular. "I know," hc said, "that
were I to preach one whole year in
one place I should preach both myself and congregation to sleep."
Hence this week's flitting of the ministers. He believed, also, that it was
the short sermon thai geet the Weird
home. Hc ordered his helpers to
"begin and end always precisely at
lhe time appointed, and always to
conclude the service in about an hour;
In suit their subject to their audience;
to choose the plainest text, and keep
close to thc text, not allegeerizing or
spiritualising too much." And more,
they wcre not to shout. "Scream no
more," he wrote to one of his
preachers, "God now warns you;
speak with air your heart, but with
moderate  voice."
In the mouths of Wesley and
Whitefield the oft-reneated sermon
was both necessary and effective. For
they journeyed and  found new hear
ers for old sermems.    Wesley, for instance,  travelled  4,500  miles  a  yeai
until  he  was  well  on  towards   three
score  years  and  ten,  and,  travelling,
preached two,  three,  and  occasional

Health and disease are physical conditions upon which pleasure, pain,
success, and failure, depend. Every
individual gain increases public gain.
Upon the health of its people is based the prosperity of a nation, by it
every value i.s increased, every joy
enhanced. Life is incomplete without
the enjoyment of healthy organs and
facilities, for these give rise to the
delightful sensations of existence.
Health is essential tei the accomplishment eif every purpose, while sickness
thwarts the best intentions and loftiest aims. W'e are continually deciding upon those conditions which are
either the source of joy and happiness or which occasion pain and disease. Prudence requires that we
should meet the foes and obviate the
dangers which threaten us and grasp
the true science of healing mentalism
and relieve onr minds of the antiquated theories of the medical profession,
that are now being confessed lo by
eminent physicians and professors as
useless and disastrously dangerous
to mind, soul and body, When the
truth eel" scientific healing is fully
grasped by the world, the grim monster Heath will pass out of existence,
and life will become a pleasure to hc
enjoyed  eternally.
A sin (violation of lhe natural law)
is ileath.
Nurture the soul and so preserve
the hoily that is ever being renewed.
Guard every thought, wend and deed
and prevent ils destruction through
which you alone forfeit life eternity
here on  this  plane,
W'e, as a people, are becoming idle,
living in luxury and ease, and in the
gratification of artificial wants. Seime
indulge in the use of fogd rendered
unwholesome hy had cookery, and
think mure of gratifying a morbid appetite than of supplying the body
wilh proper nourishment. Others devote unnecessary attention lei the display of dress and a genteel ligure,
yielding themselves completely to the
sway of fashion. Such intemperance
ill diet and dress manifests itself in
the general appearance of the unfortunate trangressor and exposes his or
her fully to the world with little It ss
precision than certain vices signify
their presence hy a beer-blooded body,
rum-emblazoned nose and kindred
manifestations. They coddle themselves instead of practising self-denial
and appear to think that the chief
end of life is gratification, rather than
useful endeavor.
I purpose to express myself candidly and earnestly on all topics rc-
laiing to health, and appeal to the
common-sense eif the community for
justification. Although it is my aim
tee simplify the work and render it a
practical  common-sense  guide  to the
New B.C.E.R. Power House recently completed on Vancouver Island
us, then, prove worthy of this gen-
ereeiis commission, that we may enjoy the sweetest of all pleasures, the
delicious fruitage of hemest toil and
faithful obedience to the Divine and
Eternal Law.
