nature, changes are wrought

there is no doubt but that the

as all living creatures adapt
themselves to their surroundings—these were probably at

that they have become adapted

forms, a climb to the peaks will

writer has studied their habits
closely, and has sat for many
an hour on the high cliffs
watching their movements.
As with all other animals,
freaks occasionally occur.
Practically all of these (lougers
have the short legs on the right
hand side, but instances are on
record where the short legs are
on the left hand side. Unfortunately, the writer has not seen
any of the latter, but it is his
hope that in time persistence
may be rewarded.

.\n addition to rule 7J is nn exceedingly strong one ami puts n heavy responsibility upon every trainer unci
driver. It is evidently meant as un
extru guard against ringing or driving
suspended and expelled horses. The
terms are very explicit:
"A driver cer rider shall not drive or
ride u horse in a race without personal
knowledge as to the eligibility eef the'
horse to compete iu said contest. A
driver or rieler violating this rule shall
lie subject to the penalty, if any, that
follows the horse, except where tlie
driver or rieler is substituted or appointed bv the- judges.
We have our deeulets as t,. whether it
is fair to put  the whole responsibility
equally true. We sincerely hope that
congress will at least pass the rule uud
see how it works for twe, years. lis that
time both trainers uml the secretaries
eef small associations will have got over
the scare and will realize that the new
rule is better I'or nil parties.
As to the duration of races, rule Hit

as two in three races are concerned, it
is a highly important inn*. It says:
"t nless otherwise expressly Stated in

The Winnipeg Clearing House—
Accurate Barometer of Trade
How on important business institution works in settling accounts that will make the billion-dollar mark
this gear.  A speedg, sure and economical method of clearing Winnipeg's banking business each dag
rpiift Winnipeg clearing hou.se is an
JL institution that is much hoard of
through tho figures it gives out;
that is, the figures are widely known
and justly esteemed remarkable, and
by this remarkableness, some fame
conies to the organization which producer these iigurus; figures • that
epitomise the wonderful progress of
;• community without parallel iu the
world today; figures that tell the story
uf this progress truly and woll to the
understanding mind uf thc business man
of other parts, to which these figures
go out, full of information, accurately
setting forth the rise nnd fall of the
business barometer of Winnipeg, simply
accurate, convincingly strong.
(Hearing house figures announce that
there is an increase in the Winnipeg
t-auk clearings for the week of half a
million dollars over tho corresponding
wecek of a year before-—perhaps a million or more over thc week of two
years previous. This news is printed iu
the local papers and goes forth to the
press cef either cities. Every city uf consequence in Canada has the news; business men nf Xew York, Chicago and
Huudun bear of it; and, iu general, thee
world knows that Winnipeg bank clearings have mude a big advance. For half
a million a week i.s u big advance; a
year of such advances puts the city's
■anil clearings twenty live millions
ahead of the year before, unci many of
the older cities would be much more
than thankful for such a mercy'—they
would be hilurinus. Hut half a million
increase in a week is no wonder in
Winnipeg. The largest figures for a
week iu 1909 exceeded the largest
week's figures nf 1908 by more than
five millions, the difference between
190S and l!l(17 was about the sumo, and
even so fur back as 1903 and 1900, tho
iigures for the latter, year—for the
best bunk clearing week—show an increase of almost four million dollars.
Measures the Flow of Trade
To  the  bunker  and tho  experienced
business man these figures tell a story
• f trade and business transactions that
iocs not advance with the slnw, cautious steps of communities whore the
search for a dollar is a work of care
and the process of making ten thousand
dollars tho  task of u lifetime;  it tells
• f commercial and trado development
•hat takes its strides liko a giant and
covers as much ground in a day as oleics cities do in a month or even a yoar.
This is an open book to the man who
knows whut a clearing house^ does and
whnt its figures mean, but the average
eitizon reads the weekly, monthly and
yearly publication of the doings of his
fity's clearing house with only a vague
comprehension of .what they mean nnd
—usually—with a vaguer idea of how
they eome about, how such figures inn-
pened to be published; thoir cause; their
effect. In the case of the Winnipeg
bank clearings, it is, indeed staggering to be told that tho figures for
1909 were if!770,B49,S22, and still moro
staggering when this enormous total is
placed aguinst the total for 1901—only
eight years before — and it is seen
that the yearly bauk clearings for that
year were but $100,056,720, or less
than one-seventh of the amount in 1909.
Again the bunker and thc business
man know what these figures and these
comparisons mean; again the average
citizen sees no more than two sums of
money, one enormously larger than the
other, but each beyond his Icon as a
thing real, tangible; handled by men
in the regular course of business; carried along the streets; passed ubout
and exchanged from man to man; counted, measured and taken account of by
actual process and all in a matter-of-
fact, everyday way—as u carpenter
shinglcB a roof or it bricklayer builds
a cottage chimney.
Will Be a Billion Dollars This Year
If tho Winnipeg bnnk clearing figures
keep on increasing as they have done
during the months of the year that
have passed, thc yearly total for 1910
will be a billion dollars or very near
it. Given n crop as good as that of
1909, and there is every probability
tbat Winnipeg bank clearings will pass
the billion mark. The first quarter of
tbe year is notedly dull in respect of
bank clearings, as a rule, but tbe total
lacrcase of this year's clearings over
a corresponding peridd Inst year, runs
up to the tidy sum of $39,799,720. That
is to sny: There has been nearly forty
million dollars worth more business
transacted in Winnipeg than thero wus
for thc same period of time in 1909.
This important fact has been determined by the Winnipeg clearing house,
an institution so .simple in its working,
ind so accurate in the results obtainable, that the man who sees it in operation for the first time, cannot fail to
be struck by the bald, open, unadorned
way in which exchanges of millions are
made and accounts handled that represent a larger fortune in the daily transactions of the clearing house than it i.s
given to more thun a very few of mankind to roll up in a lifetime nf strenuous business life.
How the Clearing House Works
Thc Winnipeg clearing house has ils
home in the basement of the Merchants
Bank. Like the way to the spider's
chamber into which Ihe Hy was cor-
dially   invited,   the   approach   lee   the
In thc room where these bank employees assemble every banking day in
the yoar—rain or shine, blow high ur
blow low—there are twenty-one booths,
arranged in horseshoe form, und at the
open eud of the shoe a raised platform
with a desk. Across this desk is a strip
of wood with hooks on it—twenty-one
hooks; one for each bank, again. Behind
the desk is a man, fair-complexioned,
alert, businesslike, and with that sort
of facility at figures that enables him
to cast up accounts that mount to millions, with ono bund, and—figuratively
—to carry ou a conversation witli the
other. This man is Kdward M. Counsel),
for four years manager uf the Winnipeg clearing house, and thoroughly experienced, by this and other work in
banking,  fnr   his  position.
The Autocrat of the Clearing House
At his desk in the clearing hnuse,
Mr. Counsel! is monarch of all he surveys. It is one of the rules of the clearing house that any person who has to do
and bank clerks are not bo sumptuously
paid that they can a,ford tn lose
half a dollar very often. There
ure a few minutes uf strenuous work
and then it is found out that a clerk
made a mistake of a thousand dollars
in adding his figures. He admits his
error and the account is corrected, if
it had been cents instead of dollars, the
case would have been the same; the accounts must be gone over until the error is found and corrected.
Daily Settlement Made
When the correction has been made,
the clerks may go, not before. In a
few minutes they arc all gone and the
whole transaction covering the balancing of perhaps several million dollars
worth of accounts—has taken no more
than forty minutes. The day's work is
nut over, though. Mr. Counsel! makes
out a daily account sheet which he
sends to one of the tellers of the
Hank of Montreal, who acts as
settling   teller   for   the   clearing   house,

Fur a comparison uf Winnipeg bank
clearings with tbose of a city in the
United States, the case of Providence,
icliueie Island, is instructive and encouraging—tu Wiunipeggcrs. Providence is
a city uf over two hundred thousand
population, and is noted as a centre of
trade anel bunking not only in the state
where it is, but among the cities uf like
size in all ihe slates. Last December,
the newspapers ut Providence gloated
over the fact that the city's bank clearings fur 1909 shciweel an increase of
mure than sixty-one millions over
best year pnur' to 1!)UU—that uf 1900.

The comparatively small increase bo-

left Port Macpherson on Peel's River,
early in the afternoon of August 1st,
and with a very favorable wiud behind
us, reached the mouth of the river iu
a short time, soon coming to another
small river, in the mouth uf which thc
water was literally boiling with jumping fish, a sight with which I was to become quite familiar ere we reached our
destination. We put to shore here, aud
while we were getting the cooking utensils on laud, anel bringing wood for the
fire, three of the men got into their kui
uks and going out among the fish, managed in a few minutes to spear enough
to furnish us with all wc would need
fur ourselves ami the dogs. These fish
were cleaned and scaled in a very indifferent manner, and after being cut into
twee cer three pieces, were thrown into
the pot, heads ami all. Then, un another
lire, a big put of rice was placed, which,
with a can of marmalade and plenty of
streeng tea which I provided, made a
vory good meal indeed. The fish that
llu1 Eskimos or "Huskies'' as they are
called in the N'eerth, got at this river,
were kuiiney.s, a big tish very much resembling the cod iu taste. They also
j have large quantities of whitelish, pike,
I trout, herring, ami suckers, and iu the
Arctic Ocean they get large quantities
of salmon, trout and herring, and they
also get in the lakes, a vory lug tish, bigger than a sal.nun, tilt* name of which
1 have been unable tn learn. I never
saw but one uf these fish. It was caught
by hook through the ice in winter, while
1 was living in an Eskimo fishing camp.

in agri'enieiit—and for the purpose
of doing good tn each eether. At
the fool of the stair are two guards,
armed tier emergencies which, happily,
iiuve never arisen in Winnipeg. Down
tho stairway there come, every bank'
ing day but Saturday a troop nf men.
Three in a row, so to speak, they come,
a clerk, a messenger and an escort
from each cef the twenty-one banks in
the city—sixty-throe men all told. The
messenger carries the' packages containing chocks ami monoy that represent
the business of his bank on the previous bank day, the escort and clerk

it, and so safely that the first less is yet

By ten o'clock of the ordinal.- banking day, and by nino-forty-fivo tu .Saturday, these sixty-throe men nre assembled in the basement room, that is
occupied by tho Winnipeg clearing
house. They must bo tjicrn on 'ime

At ten o'clock he says: "Is everybody here."' If there is uo answer, he
rings a bell. At once, the doors arc

At once, the messengers who have
brought cases full of packages of checks
and money, begin to puss around thc
room leaving the envelope or package
for each of the other banks with which
his bank has transacted business the
day before. As a rule, every bank does
business with every other bank, and,
therefore, each man will have twenty
packages when he starts to distribute
them and when he comes around the
second time, to collect the packages
from thc slant-bottomed metal box underneath the desk of his bank, there
will be the same number for him to
carry back. It takes perhaps five minutes to exchange theso packages and
four or five million dollars may pass
from hand to hand in this short space
of time; more than that, even, since
one bank has been known to contribute
a million' and a half to the clay's business. Everything is done with precision and celerity and at the end of
five—perhaps six—minutes, Mr, Conn-
sell asks his second question: "Are you
all done?" Again, if there is no answer, the bell rings. The guards open
the doors and the messengers and their
escorts file out, treasure-laden and treasure-guarding, as they entered, the
clerks stopping behind to go over the
clay's accounts.
When   Columns  Do  Not   Balance
The millions have passed out with the
messengers who brought them, but there
still remains the task of finding out
whether everybody has done his part of
the day's work with the same degree
cef accuracy.
The banks have presented their uc-
cceuuts of the business done thc day before; each envelope brought by a messenger contained chocks aad money
showing one bank's share of that business. Suppose that the business of all
the other banks iu the city with the
Hank nf Montreal's customers amounts
tn a million dollars; it may be moro or
less, but whatever it is it musl be paid.
It may be that the Bank of Montreal
heelds enough uf the' eel her banks' obligate,,as tc wipe' this celll ; if sn the othei'
winding j banks owe the Hank of Montreal the
difference; if met the Bauk of Montreal
eewes the difference tu them, or, since
there i.s a cloaritlg Incuse, they owe
il tu Ihe clearing house. The clearing

tht1 clearing house must be made
by half-past twelve uf the same
day that thoy arc determined, the hour
from half-past eleven to half-past
twelve being given over to this. Payments by settling banks begin at
twelve o'clock, uud must be made by
otic o'clock, an arrangement which
completes the work of tho clearing
house for the day at that hour.
In this short and expeditious manner
Ihe; Winnipeg clearing house handles the
accounts uf twenty-one banks—accounts that aggregated nearly eight
hundred   million   dollars  last  year and
could do, .lack Frost hurried back early
in the fall of 1H07 and between a late
spring und an early fall, the wheat crop
was sore pinched for room to ripen. The
ciup was short by twenty-five million
bushels or more, and trade in Winnipeg suffered in proportion, Nowhere is
this condition recorded with greater
fidelity anil accuracy than iu the bank
clearing figures. An advance of fifteen
millions was the besi they could do, us
against ninety-five millions tlie preceding year, and uf over one buudred and
liftysi.v '.he following year.
Thus the records uf fat and lean years

fording weekly, monthly and yearly
figures that give the besi possible Mac
uu the volume of business transacted iu
Winnipeg and the section served by
it in a business way, the clearing house
saves the banks of the city a deal of
cumbersome and costly work. Without
the clearing house, each bank would be
obliged to maintain a ledger account
with each of the other banks; with the
clearing house, no ledger account for
this class of business is kept at all. In
the days before the clearing house was
organized there was no way ot getting
such a settlement as is now effected by
the clearing house, but by sending an
account to each of tho other baaks. ThiH
was alow, expensive and unsatisfactory,
the clearing house is swift, sure and, by
comparison, the cheapest device for securing such big results that could bc
gotten up. There are two paid officers
—the manager and flic settling teller—
and two guards. All of thc expenses of
the clearing house for a year amount
tn no more than three or four thousand
dollars, and for the work that is accomplished, this is cheaper than gold dollars
at eighty cents each.
Stupendous Growth of Banking
It is nn misapplication of terms t.o
say that the growth of bunking business
iu Winnipeg hus been stupendous, enormous. When thc clearing house was
established in 1894, there wore hut nine
banks. So recently as April, 1902,
there were no more than twelve banks
in the city, or au increase nf but three'
in eight years. Between 1902 and 1910
—another eight year period—nine new
banks were established in Winnipeg, nr
as many as the* city had altogether up
tu 3894, twenty years after its incorporation as a city.
Hank clearing figures show the justi-
lii'ictice-i fnr the entry of so many new
banks intn thc field of business cover*
ed by Winnipeg. Taken by years, those
Iigurus are highly instructive to students .ef commercial growth, of trade
progress. For the nine years from 1001

lebit j lugs run into those figures:

the old settler how business was in such

be1 faulty ur his reply influenced by
some lucky-—or unlucky—happening befalling in his own cuse. It is a wonderfully well-balanced mind that nets dis-
regardful ui things personal to itself,
and man's memory is wretchedly defective in identifying time, place, and
conditions long past. Whether it be as
true as it used tn be deemed, fhat figures will not lie, may be a moot question, but it may be set down us wholly

mantle, had been left me by my predecessor in sky-piloting in the Arctic.
The Eskimos also begun to put on more
clothing, but neither the fog nor the
cold seemed in any way to affect these
jovial souls, for they began to sing a
" lioolahoola," a kind eif music that reminded me of thc bagpipes, which together with the beating of a drum, and
the strange gestures of the Eskimos,
suggested a cannibal war-dance, and although by this time I was rather tired
anel sleepy, I could not hope to sleep in
such a noise, in the summer months
the Eskimos keep awake during the
night, and sleep during the early part

they do this, for often during the midnight sun time the evenings are cold,
anil frequently misty, and then it always seemed to mc a pity to go to bed
just as the sun was rising again, but I
suppose that the Eskimos have good
reasons for doing this.
At about three o'clock in the morning, we put ashore at the mouth of an*
eether little river, where thc usual number of fish were playing, and here again
the Huskies managed to procure all we
wanted, by spearing. After making
camp feer the night, ur rather thc morning, they set their nets iu the little river, and ou rising later, found that the

On the latter part of our trip to the

made it very uncomfortable while in the

which nil thc hair had been removed,
and the skin put through some process
of tanning, which I never saw. The
other larger skins, on which the hair is
to bc left, arc rubbed on the fleshy side
with wood ash, anel then stretched on
frames and hung up to dry in the sun.

The double skirt has eoiiie iuto fashion once again, and
once again must the -question of the underskirt or Lining be
most carefully considered, or the gown will be a failure. Soft ,
silk or satin or silk finished linings are chosen preferably
and then a deep facing or flounce of the material is put on,
over which falls the gown, and if the lining is ii"t perfectly
cut and fitted then the task of making the gown is most difficult, of not impossible. With the transparent materials;
often two and sometimes three are used in order to gain ihe
desired shade of color, but this again is so difficult a task that ,
the amateur dressmaker will secure much belter results if she :
uses a more expensive lining of silk or satin and a more]
closely woven fabric, not so close but that the color and sheen j
of the satin will Bhow through.
Pot   the   moment   the  exaggeratedly   t ij-rl.t   skirts  are   in
style, and even when the upper skirts are full the linings arc |
still extremely scant, so that the same effect is given, espec- j
ially when the fulness is gathered with the bias fold or band j
around the ankles.    This fashion  requires to be most carefully dealt with, or the gown will look  vulgar and ugly;  iu
fact, too much care cannot be given to copying the original
models, as the fashions of  the  moment  are  so exaggerated
as to be unbecoming to the majority of women.    The lining
for the waist must be cut to fit tight around the waist, but
must have sufficient width across the bust and directly be
Death the bust, i'or otherwise the lines of the figure will  be
completely spoiled.    The seam from shoulder to waist line is
now thought better in the lining than the two darts, and it
is easier with it to give the desired breadth.
Since the exaggeratedly large hats show small sign of dying out, the hat box, large and clumsy as it is, must certainly
be reckoned with if a girl cares to have every detail o* her
private sanctum perfect. Even if a pretty paper covered box
is thought sufficiently attractive for a closet, it certainly
will not do if the box is to be kept on one of the new hat
racks, which are now resorted to in small rooms where the
closet mom is sn small as not to admit of more than two or
three hat boxes on its shelves.
These new hut racks, or, rather, bat 'box racks, are really
excellent in a small room. Made trianguhir in shape, they
will lit into an unused corner ;iml can be made with enough
shelves to hold as many hat boxes as desired. The plain
wooden frame can be either painted the color of the Wood*
work or of the room, or else rendered still more inconspicuous
by being covered with a bit of the same paper as that which
adorns the wall. The hat boxes an1 then covered with the
same cretonne with which the room is hung. A French print
framed with gold or silver metal lace placed iu the centre of j
one panel of the box is most attractive,
These hat boxes are already much in demand for prizes,!
while for gifts or for sale at a fair they are still sufficiently
original to be eagerly sought. Wheu not planned for any j
special room or rack there is, of course, greater freedom in j
tlie choice of material and eolor.
For a rose colored boudoir, a Dn Barry pink moire bordered about the box itself, as well as the lid, with a good sized
French print placed both on the top of the box as well as on
one or all panels is really beautiful. A well made hat box
with wooden frame must be procured to cover, for an ordinary cardboard box is not sufficiently^strong to be worth the
covering. AH the more expensive hats are now generally
sent home in these boxes having wooden framework, nnd if
a girl is not so fortunate as to possess such a box herself she
surely can beg, borrow or steal one from some friend or
The prints, of course, must be pasted to the material before the box itself is covered. The braid can be either pasted
or sewed on, the latter method being a little more trouble
and infinitely more satisfactory in the long run. To buy the
correct quantity of braid the box itself must first be measured, for every hat box today is a different size. The round
boxes, of course, take much less material, and for the square
box each side should be treated as a panel and adorned down
each edge. The braid employed should be about an inch in
IT will be remembered that King George V, when Prince of
Wales—two years ago on his voyage home from the Tercentenary in the Indomitable, went below in the stokehole and shoveled coal under a boiler till he sweat like a
navvy. King George will not be likely to shovel coal on a
man-of-war. There will be a number of princely diversions
which public opinion will lead him to eliminate. But he enn
never lose interest in the navy; and he will probably know
even better than did his father the minutiae of the latest developments of man-of-warisin.
For it is some years since King Edward was on tne sea.
He crossed the ocean in a dawdling old tub that must have

hike the simple gowns, every line and detail has been
most carefully thought out in the individual wearer and the
hat has been most ua.rofully constructed before it can pass
the gauntlet of the master milliner's scrutiny. All of which
takes time and skilled labor, and, although the prices asked
and obtained are fabulously high, time and skilled labor are
expensive, and must, be reckoned with in calculating the cost.
#    •    *
The constant change of stylo is terribly trying, not only
to the woman who has to calculate closely what she spends,
but. t.o the woman who is intent upon always being well
groomed and wbo, having spent many hours in selecting hats,
suddenly discovers that a new importation has arrived in
which each and every model is entirely different from any
she has in her present collection. It requires considerable
self control not to be swayed by the continual change, and to
<*oni iuite to wear the originally chosen hats with that serenely
conscious, self-possessed manners that a thoroughly satisfactory hat  bestows  upon the  wearer thereof.
Are large or small hats the most fashionable.' is a question continually askod and ono that is hard to answer.
Never was thore a season when smaller or miner move
close fitting hats wero worn, and yet never was there a season
when such immense, ones were fashionable, and ulso the medium sized hat is eagerly sought for. At one time \t
emphatically stated that small hats in the daytime and largo
hats in tho evening solved the problem, but now, with the
Oriental style of wrapped turban shape chosen for the evening and the enormous, all-enveloping hat made of crin or
straw, trimmed with bows of tulle or ribbon and many liowers
and unmistakably intended for day wear, all ideas are changed again, and it is indeed a tli Hi cult task to steer correctly
nlong the winding path that Dame Fashion elects her subjects
shall  tread.
Toques and turbans are tremendously popular, but- quite
distinct iu shupe and style from what wore called by those
names a year ago. The general outlines tire quite unlike. The j
head size is always large so that the hat goes down far on
the head, and as this sometimes is unbecoming, an inside
bund, ur halo, as it is called, has to be put iu to raise the
hat from the head and show at least a glimpse of hair and
l-'aio-y straw, wonderfully soft ami pliable and in every
conceivable color, is used in these hats, and, treated as though
it wero tulle or silk, is folded and pleated and fairly wound
around the frame. A stiff aigrette or bow of tulle, silk or
velvet or a jewelled ornament is the trimming thought the
smartest, but within the last fortnight have been seen hats of
this description where stiff sprays of roses have been the
trimming. The hats are soft in outline, but the trimming is
always stitf ami hard, in sharp but most effective contrast.
There tire toques made with brim of liowers and crown of
milUnetf, plain or (iguvedj these are round in shape, quite
lar^o, ami the liowers arc of the small blossoms; the crown
\> extremely full, with many loops and bows, generally black,
although lhere ate many with the clown of silk bows to
mil toll Ihe gown, while the flower brim may be a lighter ur
darker shade of the same color.
With the street costume, the simple tailor gown, is worn
this season a much plainer, more suitable stylo of hat than
Was seen last year. Medium sizes and small shapes are Ihe
best, although there are few of the larger shapes that are included   iu  the  latest   exhibitions.
A hat, something between n toque and turban in shape,
thai is popular, (its quite dose to the head, is apparently
small, although in reality il is of medium size; it has a brim
of hemp braid or crin that turns down; tho crown is of satin
or silk, quite high and full, and at the left side is a large still'
bow of the silk or satin. Another of the same description
has a black velvet crown with white straw brim ami a bow-
id' white straw that looks like n piece of luce. Then there i^
a modification uf one of last year's most popular walking
hats, with the brim rolled back'toward the front and caught I
with a fancy bow or still feathers. This ymy the shape tins a
Mghei' crown and a stifVer brim, but the lines are almost the
same, Hough straw nud with the satin finish is smartest for
this style of liut. uiftl in ;i,ll colors, ii- well as in black and
white, it is in coii^tatil demand, for it W generully becoming
uud must practical.
Ijiicc i- one of '.he most fashionable trimmings this season, [
both uiiilc and bltlck, and most beautiful pieces of lace have
boon taken from the family treasure chest   and made up into!
the laee hats tlltii   are so ell'oct ive and  becoming, or twisted j
firm)ml the crown iu must graceful style.
A  Hat hand oi   white Im n the brim  inside of a  I.lack
crin  Imt   is extremely  smarl   und the sharp contrast  uf tlie
white against  the black challenges attention al  once.    Then
when combined with roses, pink, yellow, red aiol white, there'
is  no  material  that   is  so satisfactory,     A   burnt   or Tuscan;
rough straw with the lnce around the crown and a spray of
pink roses ;it the side looks equally well with a light or dark ]
gown and is invariably becoming, whilo the white or black;
entire luce lull   wilh aigrette or roses bestows the finishing I
touch  to ,i  dainty  uml   picturesque summer   truck.
An almost iivorpuwering, hut it cuiiunl be denied a mosl
picturesque hut, is of black crin trimmed with black lace, pink
roses and aigrettes or ostrich plumes. Linger than any of
last year's shapes, with higher crown than has been cons Id
ered in style in years, this remarkable construction never
thetess challenges admiration and recalls the enormous pic
turo luits of the Gainsborough era. when powdered hair, puffs
and   ringlets  were   the  accepted   headgear of the  day.
And this shape makes its appearance just when  we lire   ,,f ;1 Meet.    King Oeorge hus bi  al sea
told that smaller hats nre to be worn, but the lace softens When he st.iked the Indomitable she mat
the hard outlines and the general effect is becoming, and it going hume, Tan of that record speed

A rather unfortunate incident
occured in connection with the
visit of the Michel football team
on Saturday. One of tho Michel
players, Harry Wright, who
was unable to come on the regular train in the morning,
travelled on a freight in the
afternoon, and in jumping off
before the train stopped, was
thrown violently to the ground
on his head, but did not appear
to sustain any serious injury.
Later in theafternoon,however,
he showed signs of complete
lapse of memory, could noteven
remember his own name. Dr.
Higgins was called in, and gave
a verdict of concussion of tho
brain. Tho unfortunate man
was taken home on a freight
late on Saturday night, the flyer
having gone through without
stopping to coal.

handsome residences on them
in the near future to meet tho
growing demand for accommodation.
