Two Magnificent Big Ships to be Added to

The coning season of the transatlantic
travel pi anises tn be the most notable of all
in the history of neean voyages up to the
present time. Not only will there he a
greater number of vessels in the service than
has before been known, but. ell'orts will probably be made to reduce all previous records.
The two vessels in process of construction for the Cunard Couipany, one ot which
will probably be ready for service (luring
the Summer, will bo more splendid than any
ever seen. Their dimensions are so great
that those not directly versed iu the art of
shipbuilding ami marine engineering would
scarcely lie able in grasp the .subject without an explanation. When the Cities of
Paris and New York, and more recently the
-Majestic and Teutonic appeared on the
Atlantic rnule, il was supposed that the
apex ul engine power and fast steaming had
practically been reached, bnt in this age ot
scieniiiic progress comparatively little is impossible after all.
Tin-new Cunarders are each lobe over
WW feet long and to register 13,500 gross
tens. Tlie engines will be niarvels.anil their
power will be far in excess of anything
afloat, ll is also in tended to have these
ship i outstrip all others engaged in the Atlantic trade iu elegance of equipment.
When the City of Paris broke the record,
covering the distance from Queenstown to
this port in 5 days, 19 hours and 13 minutes,
two years ago, her engines developed about
23,01)11 horse-power, so that to get the odd
hours out of the way a vessel with nearly 3,-
000 tons more weight to carry will require
30,01)0 effective horse power, and it is expected that the twin-screw engines nf these
two new vessels will actually work up to
thai figure.
In 1891 the record was made by the While
Star line Teutonic, which covered the distance from Sandy Hook to Queenstown in 5
days, 12 hours and 3 minutes, steaming in
that time '2,71)0 knots, In order to cover
the distance in five days an average speed of
twenty-three and one-half knots pur hour���
equal tn about twenty-seven land miles will
have m he maintained, It is said that each
of the Cunarders now in process of construction ou the Clyde will cost ��410,000.
During the past two months nearly every
one of the fast ships Ins been overhauled.
Extensive work has been done upon all
and have been put hi first-class condition
preparatory to the commencement of thc
���Spring and Summer voyage?, Already much
booking has been done by the various lines,
and there is every indication that the eastward passenger business this season will surpass that of auy previous year.   Hy Apnl
1 every one of the g-eat ocean flyers will be
running nn its regular trips east and west.
Of lhe total number of vessels that will run
thirty-six may be classed as specially fast,
but of this number there will be only five
contestants for lienors as record makers or
breakers, as far as the New York-Queens-
town voyages arc concerned, The live will
be the City of Paris and City of New York
of the Ionian line, the Teutonic and Majestic of thc While Star line, and the new
Cunarder, and all interest will centre during
the season iu the performance of these grey-,
The contestants in other lines will proh-1
ably be confined tn the Fuci-sl Bismarck, |
Normannia, and (lolumbia of the Hiunborg-
American line, and the Havel and Spreo of
the North Gorman Lloyd, in the passage
between Southampton and this port, and !
La Touraine and  La Bourgogno of the
French lino between Havre and Now York.

In America everybody feels that equality
is not merely a name, and that thc humblest
citizen may aspire to be President; but an
idea prevails that in Kngland class distinctions and "the cold, shade of the aristocracy" prevent those who are born without
social advantages from ever rising to a high
position.   That idea is not altogether correct.   'There is a certain sturdy spirit of
equality in the Anglo-Saxon character, and
there never was a time when England disdained to place her highest public offices in
the hands of men of obscure birth, if they
showed capacity for them.   " Dick Whit-
tinglon, thrice Lord Mayor of London," is
no fable, though the slory is 400 years old.
Cardinal Wolsey, Lord High Chancellor,
was the son of a butcher.  Oliver Cromwell

who never had a grandfather to speak of.
George Joachim Gosohen, the most distinguished Chancellor of the Exchequer of
modern times, with the exception of Mr.
(Hailstone, and the most influential member of the Salisbury .Ministry next to the
Premier, and the First Lord of the treasury,
i.s a marked instance of a mi Idle-class man
who has risen to a high position. His fUher
was a London Merchant of not great prominence in business and of no social standing
at all, who was commonly supposed to be a
German Jew, though in fact he was English
by birthain, was a Christian, whatever his
progenitors may have been. When young
Goschen was bom, in 1831, to be suspected
of Jewish lineage was a great disadvantage-
No Jew could r-it in either House of Parliament or hold any public ollice under the
Crown, or cuter either of the universities ot
any of the public schools.   Except in business or on the turf, in fact, Jews were excluded from the avenues to  success.   The
elder Goschen boldly sent his son tn Rugby
and to Oxford, and he distinguished himself
to much by his scholarship and his independence of character that lie regained the
respect of all the men of sense among his
fellow-students.   He had to suffer a great
deal of ill-treatment,  nevertheless, on ac.
count of his  Hebrew  physiognomy aud
foreign name. Many of his contemporaries in
public affairs remember one little inciden-
of his life at Rugby, where he was a favorite pupil of Dr. Tait, tbe late Archbishop
of Canterbury.   The students had a very
offensive trick of inventing doggerel rhymes
like this:
1 hail a hit of pork,
I stuck it on a fnrk.
And gavo It to the Jowboj- Jew I
I hud a hit of mutton,
Isl lick it on a button.
-Anil gavo il In the Jew boy, Jew I
1 hail a hit of beef
I stuck ft on a loaf,
Ami guvo it In thc Jew boy, Jew 1
and so en, with tiresome monotony.   Goschen took this very gond teniperedly till one
day a student who was old enough to know
better,  and  whose noble birth gave him
great prominence, went a step too far.   He:
wrole the " pnrk " stanza on a piece of paper, and pinned it up in the pew where Gos-
clicn used to sit in chapel.   The result was
an explosion nf laughter among the students
dining service, and an inquiry on the part
of the head master.   Hector 1'ait was quite
ready to > unish the offender, bin Goschen
begged him not to take any notice nf ihe
affair,   Ho intended to look after that mat- j
tor himself,   II,'sought out bis tormentor

Into power In IHIID ho gave Mr. Ooiohon one
high nlliee in his Catmint after another, and
Identified bun as closely as possible  with
himself in his financial schemes, and he soon
bad his reward. The Ministry were defeated in 1874, and a general election followed. There was a strong reaction against
the Liberal party, especially in London,
where the Conservatives carried every seat
but one. The solitary Liberal member for
what bad formerly been a Liberal stronghold was .Mr. tloschcn. Probably no other
man could have saved his party from utter
extinction in the city at that crisis.
lieing now out of ollice he turned his attention to what may be called financial diplomacy. At that lime Egypt was over head
and ears in debt to French aud English capitalists, and the affairs of tliecountry were in
such a horrible muddle that the interest was
unpaid, and the principal was in danger,
notwithstanding that thc unhappy Egyptians
were ground to the very earth by taxation.
Mr. Gosohen went to Cairo as delegate for
the British bondholders and speedily devised a scheme by which the Khedive was enabled to pay his debts, while the crushing
burdens of his people were greatly relieved,
It was a brilliant stroke of financial skill,
and, as it touched the pockets of many thousands of very influential people in England,
it doubled Mr. Goschcn's reputation and
gave him a great ciaini on public gratitude
Before this .Mr, Goschen had given a very
striking instance of the old spirit of independence which be showed at school and
college. Finding that bis Beat as member
for the city of London was not altogether
comfortable and that his constituents were
inclined to grumble at some of his doings,
ho boldly faced the situation, wrote a strong
letter, and retired from the seat at the first
opportunity. The electors of Ripon, in
Yorkshire, returned him witlinul difficulty,
and he afterward was elected for Edinburgh,
being one of the few men who ever sat in
Parliament for both the English and the
Scottish capital.
In 1SS0 came his memorable quarrel
with Mr. Gladstone on the home rule
question. Ol all the politicians who severed themselves from Mr. Gladstone at
that time and formed the Liberal-Unionist
party the two who incurred the bitterest
displeasure of their former chief were
his ex-colleagues. Sir George Trevelyan
and Mr. Goschen. The Grand Old Man
was besides himself with rage when he
beard of their detections, and he not only
covered them with abuse in terms quite
unworthy of him, but he took measures
for driving them both out of public life.
Both were defeated at the polls, and Sir
George Trevelyan's courage gave way.
Ho cried peccavi and returned to the
Gladstonian fold, Mr. Gosohen look a
very different course. He easily got another scat, and at once beanie one of Mr.
Gladstone's most formidable antagonists.
He made him bitterly rue the day when
he called him a " Tory," and tried to expel him from politics. He furnished the
Unionist party with just what they stood
most in need of, an aide financier, and to
crown his vengeance on Mr. Gladstone, he
stepped into the position that great man used
to fill. He became Chancellor of the Exchequer in Lord Salisbury's Ministry and
contributed incalculably to their Buccess by
a succession of brilliant budgets, lowering
the taxation, paying off largo sums of national dcbt,abolishing vexatious imposts,and
yet always having handsome surplus. In
short, he has carried out in (ive years measures which Mr. Gladstone never hoped to
be able to carry in double the time. The
greatest of bis exploits undoubtedly, and one
by which he will be longest remembered, is
the reduction of the rate of interest on consols trom 3 per cent to 2 1-2 per cent, tt measure which gave a great stimulus to industry
and commence both by cheapening money
and by checking the tendency lo hoard up
money unprodiietivcly.
This and oilier such startling strides
ahead, however, have made Mr. Goschen
very unpopular wiih the Conservatives;
a,id when ihe other day there was a talk of
his being made First Lord of the Treasury
in succession to Mr, Smith, there was very
nearly revolt in the party. To tell the
truth, Mr. Goschen is not liked, No one
can deny his ability or his many valuable
q ... : .,- ; but he is lacking in that rare
faculty of conciliation, which made Mr.
Smith so powerful, and equally so in that
lofty courtesy and chivalrous unselfishness
which has made Mr. Balfour beloved even
by his hottest political foes. Willi all his
intelle I and all his versatility, Mr. Gosohen
has never succeeded in becoming quite a
gentleman, and that will probably stand in
the way of his ever attaining the highest
posit "ii- of all.

Slovo of Kiev reports some curious instances of popular doctoring in south Russia. The rural dentist places his patient
upon a little stool and examines him. If ai
upper tooth is to be pulled he performs the
operation with a simple pair of tongs like
that uted by cobbler. But if a luwer tooth
is to he extracted the operation is more
complicated. The tooth is tied very skilfully with a violin siring. The oilier end of
tbe string is fastened to a hook iu the ceiling, Then the stool is removed with a jerk
from beneath the patient, who falls, his
tooth remaining on the siting, sometimes
with tho flesh around it. Intermittent fever
i.s cured either by live frogs or by fright.
When the sickness breaks out the patient is
made to carry about biin as ninny live frogs
as can be put in Ins ololhos. If lhat treatment does not help the patient his fellow
villagers try to frighten him. The most
popular method of doing that is known by
tho name of Likeniye, A crowd of men and
women come into tlio house and raise a quarrel with the patient. They treat him to
tbe loudest and must offensive terms of reproach. That naturally irritates bim, and
be answers in similar terms. The crowd
takes offence at his rude expressions and resolves to lynch him. A rope iB put around
his neck and he is dragged about until he is
insensible on account of fright.
Practical Difficulties of teat Train Speed.
First nf all, we must know how snot, after
receiving warning of danger, a train of 3,r)0
tons, running a mile in 3H seoonds, can be
stopped, it is estimated that if running at
00 miles per hour, with the full braking
weight nf ihe train utilized, and the rails in
Ve. must favorable condition, Ihis train
could be hroilgb to a lull stop in 000 feet;
at SU miles per hour, in 1,000 feot j at 90
miles per hour, -n 2,025 feet ; an 1, finally,
al 11)11 miles p r. uur, in 2,500 leet.   These
figures at on, 'nblisli the (act that under
ihe best possible conditions the track must
ho kept clear of all obstruction for at least
2,500 feet in advimc - of a train running at
tbe highest limit ; bit wo must estimate
the clearance for the worst conditions, such
as slippery ruila, foggy weather, and unfavorable grades; the personal equation of
tlie otlgineinan must also be considered in
u train covering 145 feet each second.
Would it be too much to ask that tho en-
gineman receive his warning three-quarters
of a milo before he must ball?
The difficulties of arranging for the passage of trains of this character arc manifest)
we are nut speaking of special trains, but
rather of regular trains, running as frequently as may be desired. It should be remembered thai, in u two-hour run, the fastest
trains of to-day would require a leeway of
uu hour, and slower oner, would have to
atari proportionately earlier, or be passed
on the way,
The moat Improved forms of signalling
and interl.icking, be tbey mechanical, pneumatic, electric, automatic, or otherwise,
which are so necessary to the safe movement
of passenger trains, may be introduced, but
cannot bo placed nearer together than three
quarters of n mile. The very presence of
these signals, while giving the maximum
safety, has in practice made prompt movement more difficult, This state of affairs
would point to the necessity for an increase
iu the number of tracks, bo that passenger
trams could be grouped on the basis of
speed just as it has been found already necessary, on crowded lines, to separate the
freight traffic from thc passenger,���[From

" But Jack hain't we ergoin' ter try an'

and taken off the child's shoes.   " Andnow
dearie, pile in, an' take a real good snooze."
"But, Mr. Jinimie, you must hear me
say my prayers first."
If a shell bad come crashing into the dugout it could not have created more astonishment than the simple request of the child.
Quick-witted Jimmie had however pulled
himself together quicker than a HaBh, and
before the child noticed the astonished and
confused looks, be bud carefully spread a
bearskin tin the dirt floor, and gently as ber
own mother bade ber "say her prayers."
The beautiful Lord's Prayer was repeated
in the clear childish voice, and then came,
" And please, my Heavenly Father, bless
my own dear papa and mamma, and little
baby brother, and Mr, Big Jack, and all
the boys at the Stone Corral."
Starting up and drawing the back of his
hand hastily across bis eyes, and endeavoring to steady his voice, big Jack said:
"Jimmie, you an' Juan stay an' tend ter
the leetle un. We uns are ergoin' to help
the folk."
Crash, and the dug-out door flew open,
and five determined men���yes, men in every
sense of the word that night���rushed to the
corral, buckling on lbe heavy six-shooters
aa they ran.
"Take the black."
"You take the sorrel."
" No, he had a lung day's ride already."
"How's ther blue roan?"
" He's fresh."
" Be sure an' all get fresh horses, boys ;
God knows we'll need 'em bad enough.
" I'm taking the blazed face bay.'.
" Better not���he's stiff in the shoulder."
"Pinto is fresh."
The heavy stock saddles are slapped on,
and muscular arms tug and tug at the long
latigo straps, until the chinchas seem as if
they would cut through hair and hide, so,
tight are they.
" Be sure and cinch 'em well, boys, we
can't stop to tighten 'em after we get started."
" Ay, ay,yer kin bet on us, Jack."
"Are yer all OK?"
"You bet."
"Then head for the Baldy Mountain an'
if ever you spurred, spur this night."
Out and away, leaning low, until our
breasts almost rested on the saddle horn,
and with spurs tightly pressed against our
brcuchos' sides, we swept swiftly away
from the Stone corral. Big Jack was on the
left and a little in the lead; and as we
rushed over a low sand ridge. I saw him
and his horse showing dark aud clearly cut
against the sky. He waB riding his best this
night, and his blueroan was stretching himself like a thoroughbred.
On and on, with a rushing noise, like the
sound of great wings now a sharp ejaculation or a smothered oatli from somebody
as his horse made a stumble, and now pushing silently on, cutting the cool night wind
like arrows���and yet, dear heaven, we may
be too late!
" Pull er leetle to the left, boys ; we kin
make belter running."
Running! they are running like racers
now ; bul can they keep it up for twenty
miles over the sandy, heavy ground ?
But there were no signs of weakening yet,
and at every lift of the steed they plunged
forward like frightened deer.
And now we came to a long stretch
covered with loose and jagged granite ; at
any other time we wonl.1 have pulled upand
carfully picked our way over. But to-night
the stake we were riding for was far loo
preoious to care for horse-flesh, or even our
own necks; so with slightly tightened reins
and only our toes resting in the broad stirrups, we pushed madly across, the sparks
Hashing as the iron shoes clashed against the
rough rock. Across at last, thank God.and
once more on the smooth plain, our gallant
cayuses, with ears well forward, and distended nostrils, were stretching themselves and
throwing dust like hemes.
Rising abend of us and looking almost like
a small cloud was the "lone tree."
"Half way, boys!"
"Thank heaven ter that; but do yer
s'pose the cayuses kin keep his gait and git
Xo answer to that question: we a'! feared
that the brave brutes would drop, and���but,
dear heaven help us, we must get there, to
save the mother and babe, or die trying.
With a slight swerve we passed the lone,
tree, looking Strangely weird us it stood all
all alone, like some gigantic sentiniil keeping watch and ward over the plain below.
Toiling over more sand ridges, the horses
wore breathing hard and running heavily;
but still doing very little stumbling,
Out of the sand and up the rim rock we
tried a spurt, but the jaded animals were
doing their best, and the steel failed to get
an extra jump out of tbem. Another mile
would bring us to a point where we would
be able if it were daylight to see the settler's
Through a long sag, then a dry creek bed;
crashing through the stunted willows that
lined its banks, we breasted the slight ascent, and in another minute Were on the
summit, Wc involuntarily checked our
panting horses, and a thrill of horror ran
through us as we saw a bright glare of light
"Ton late, too late, boys! The reds
have gol 'cm." Jack's voice sounded almost
Ilk,-a .roan.
" II uv far arc we from the place?"
" Erbout lhc miles 'round by the wagon
road, but we kin lead our horses down the
deer trail, and git thar in two."
'Then let's follow the deer trail; wo
may vn be in lime ter help 'em some way."
Leading our staggering, trembling horses,
we cautiously crept down the precipitous
trail, a. : moutltlng, headed straight lor ihe
glare, which ci en iu the valley could be distinctly seen,
N'obnily now remembered that we wen-
only live tn thirty, and, goaded and cut by
the spurs, the cayuses carried us rapidly
over the ground.
When wilhin half a mile we halted in the
shadow of some overhanging rocks, while
Hank cautiously crawled up, and out on a
projecting shelf to reconnoitre, for if the
Apaches had any scouts thrown out wc
should have to be careful, as our only
chance of success was to surprise them.
While wc were waiting we carefully examined our six-shooters, and in another
minute, to our great joy, Hank was telling
us that the barn was on lire, but the dwelling-house was still intact, and that he could
distinctly hear the crack of rifles showing us
plainly that the brave settle wr.s still defending his loved ones.
"Now, boys, here's tber best plan I kin
think on���I hain't extra much of a gineral,
but I hev an idea thct it's tho best way fer
us ter do. We'll lead our critters down this
gully till we git ter thet scrub brush���wc
kin lo thet without the reds ketching on
ter us���then we'll mount. Yer see by that
time the cayuses will be gitting their wind
purty well. Then we'll ride right square
down on 'em, yelling like fury, an' wliarcve
a red gits up we'll down bim. Then if they
make it too hot for us, we'll dodge inter the
"An' what then, Jack?"
" Wal, we'll Boater help the settler to
hold the fort. Anyway we kin keep 'em
from setting the shanty afire, 'till the cavary
comes. By this lime the trnops must be on
the trail an' after 'em red hot. They can't
be a great ways off, nohow."
Silently as spectres then we led our horses
down the gully, carefully avoiding the rocks
that here and there cropped out through
the sand. Reaching the scrub willows, we
found ourselves within .'100 yards of the
house, and perhaps about 400 Irom the burning barn.
Climbing quietly into our saddles, we
bent low to keep out of the glare, and Jack
whispered, " Are yer all ready ?"
" Yes," whispered back, and we pressed
our sombreros tightly down on our heads.
With a rush and a crash wc tore through
the brush and rode at full speed ou into the
clearing, now almost as light as day, for the
big, heavy barn timbers were burning clearly and steadily. Across we went, our excited animals plunging and leaping like
panthers, but still no Indians.
Past the house and within a few yards of
the burning barn we pulled up. The silence
confused us. Were we too late after all?
Mechanically we closed up���a fatal move,
for with unearthly yells and blood-curdling
whoops, the Indians, from a low sag in the
groiiiit' on the left, sent a murderous volley
crashing into our midst.
Down went our brave horses, and down
went their riders. Four of us scrambled to
our feet as we cleared ourselves from the
stirrup leathers, only to throw ourselves behind our lead-riddled, dying animals just in
time to save ourselves; for again the villains
poured their lead into us -this time, thank
heaven, doing us no harm.
Using our horses for breastworks, we tried
to return their fire, but they were effectually
"Anybody hit-"
"Yes, I saw Hank throw up his hands and
fall facedown."
"Boys, we've got ter get out of this or
they'll surround us sure."
"Kin wc make a break for the cabin?"
"I think wo might manage to crawl thar,
by kinder keeping the horses between us and
the red cusses."
"Hark, somebody is hollering!"
Looking over our shoulders, we saw that
the door of the shanty was partly open, and
the settler vigorously beckoning to us.
"We must try an' see if poor Hank is
clean done fer, fust."
One of the boys crawled cautiously around
to the deed horse and fallen rider, and returning in the same manner, whispered sorrowfully that " poor Hank lied passed in
his checks."
" Now, boys, we'll make a run fer it,���
sloop low," and with a spring, away we
rushed for the door.
Another stream of lead whistled by ub,
but nobody fell, and in another second, we
were inside lbe heavy door, and helping the
1 settler barricade il.
"I heard you when you charged by,
men, but it took nie some time to open the
door, as I bad a bull lot of things piled agin
" Are ye all safe so far, Stanton ?"
" Yes, thank God. My wife is guarding
the back of the house, and I'm watching
this part. What we feared most is that
they will fire the place, like they did tho
barn. My little daughter reached you safely, did she?"
" Yes, and is staying in the dug-out r.t
the corral. We left two of thc boys with
" Now, men, I'll show you the loop-holes
In the logs, and I'll go and tell the wife 'he
little one is safe."
Hour after hour wo strained our eyes,
peering through the loop-holes trying to
calch sight of the redskins, But they were
very wary and seemed to have a wholesome
dread of venturing into the firelit space in
the front of the house.
Presently Stanton came quietly in and
said, " Boys there's something going on at
the back that I don't understand,"
Leaving one man in the front room, we repaired with him to the room in the rear of
the building,
J,*.ck pressed bis face close lo a loophole

.Eternal Vigilance in Mending-
I once knew a large family of romping
girls and boys who always looked neat and
tidy, although, as I happened to know, they
did not have half as many new clothes as a
neighboring family who were iu rags half
the time. I asked the mother of the tidy
children's garments always neatly mended.
She replied, that aside from her regular
weekly mending siie went every night after
her children were in bed and looked their
clothing over, and if there were any torn
places in any garment it was mended then ;
if a button was oil, it was replaced by another : if a stocking had begun to be " holy,"
it was immediately treated. It made mc
tired (I don't mean to be slangy) when I
thought of that mother's nightly round
among her children. Their clothes were
common, sometimes almost mean, and without any frills or furbelows; for this sensible
housewife preferred that they should be
plain and mended rather than rullled and
The policy of this wise mother is applicable in other ways. How soon a building
becomes dilapidated if one is not constantly
on the lookout to make the needed repairs
���a broken binge here, a broken pane of
glass there, door-knobs working loosa, a
patch of falling plaster, paint worn off or
grown gray, leaks started which will spoil
the plaster and paper unless qnickly
attended to. Neglect of all these little
things soon gives a house a gone-to-
ruin look. A few nails, hinges and screws,
a lump of putty, a few cans of paint, some
varnish and brushes kept on hand and
used on the principle of "a stitch in time "
will keep the new look on buildings and
their surroundings, If the housewife is
supplied with paper, paint, varnish, whitewash and brushes, and has the strength to
course injures one's self and many others besides.
The forbidding of the enjoyment of scandal in public is, ai any rate, an acknowledgment of its vulgarity if not of its wickedness. It proclaims, too,the fact that society
thinks well of itself and its intentions, and
has a standard of some loftiness up to which
it endeavours to live, and that it recognizes
an interest in the possible ill-doings of fallen
mortals as something intrinsically low and
coarse and calculated to hurt its own structure, an interest in such facts anyway as indicative of an order of taste not to be desired, and its possessor a person not tobe associated with. It may be simply as a sybaritic precaution, ease and pleasure being so
much surer when uo uncomfortable suggestion thrusts in an ugly head, that unpleasant
topics of an unwholesome nature are tabooed in the conversation of the finest drawing-
rooms. But whether this is so or not, it is
plain thatgood society would like to be optimistic, it would believe in no evil and
would spcas no evil ; it has found that the
essence of good manners is also the essence
of the golden rule, and as the voice of scandal violates all its notions, it has laid upon
such utterance within its borders the penalty ofostrooism.
Why not a Provident Dress Society ?
To girls with slender allowances any sudden emergency in dress occurring just when
they have supplied themselves with a stock
of garments for the coining season is often
extremely embarrassing, and I wonder that
no one starts a provident dress society, to
which members would subscribe a small
sum annually, ami which would make grants
out of its funds on such occasions as having
to go into mourning; to go unexpectedly
into a climate requiring quite different sort
of olothint?; to act as brideinaid ; and in
some cases of marriage, when the relations
are unable to provide any outfit ; also in the
event of a member being suddenly called to
enter any new position requiring an immediate outlay on dress. Such a society, well
and honorably conducted, would be a help
to numbers of people, and would encourage
thrift in girls and often prevent them begin-
ing the dangerous habit of running into

Ihiu. il was for ci rluin gentlemen of
���Viotoria (naming them) to do the
same thing elsewhere. But two
mi pes never made a right, and bulb
triu.' net ions may properly bo termed
sloop practice. We speak in con -
temptuous terms of the land sj I m
in' lhe old country, but wo hi vc ti
woipi evil in our midst���tho grill biug
by rpeculators of land which promise0 to becomo valuable, and the
holding it until they can realise as
much for one acre as they paid for
the whole 360, to the great detriment
of the buna fide sillier. Mr. Keliio
do(s not seo eye to eyo with us in
this matter, Still, he's do ng vory
well. Ho spoke straight out on the
land question, lbe Iievelstoke town-
site question, the mismanagement of
the Dominion Government in regard
to the 20-niilo belt, and on tho do
structjon of game by Indians from
the other side of the boundary line.
In this last matter the Provincial
Government stated that it had no
jurisdiction, and shifted tho onus on
the Dominion Govornment, It now
renii irs for residents of West Kootenay to draw Mr. Mam's attention to
the mailer. Mr. Kellie came out
honorably in the A. rnnrct affair, tho
latter'*! apology to the .House proving
that the membir for West Kootonay
was entirely blameless. We should
have been grieved had Mr, Kellie so
far fi eotteii himself as to descend to
pugilistic methods within the precincts of the House, but from what
we know of him we do not think he
is a i-iiiu tobei''.suited with impunity.
Should the bill introduced by Mr,
Kellie become law it will sborteu tho
sittings of the House, us most of it:;
lime at present is devoted to private
bill legislation, and, furthermore, it
will piit an end to the present s'y< torn
of waylaying and button I
members, iii the lobby by private bill
steerers, Evidently oul ii nib r i
not afraid of the- task before him und
his outspokenness? has guined him
many adherents in Revelstoko, We
piust, however, enntjon him against
tho mistake of impetuosity.
