dittinction is that ho is enormously rich.
Were he not so rich ho would not have
10 many eseellent opportunities to offer
what to most people is a most unpalatable article—good advice.
From proffering gratuitous advice to
necessitous youug men who have tbeir
own way to make in the world, and wbo
will probably, despite all tbe good advice, make itiu their own particular way,
Mr. Oarnegie lies bourgeoned forth an
the counsellor of princos, potentates r.ir.1
powers. Nay more, to offering whole
continent, his views as to what tbey
ihould do not be happy.
From this high level it is only a sl(-;•
farther to jogging the elbow ot Omni-

in men and things. It is quite easy

pollen the imagination of a Julei Verne
to behold in fancy tbe French Hon lying
down in peace with the Gorman lamb;
or the Russian boar affectionately enfolding the Auitrian double-headed eagle
to hia bosom in a l'an-Europenn league
againit the transatlantic ogre, who, according to Mr, Carnegie le going, one ol
thoie dayi, to devonr European nations
for breaklaat,
Mr, Carnegie never wae an admirer of
Canada or Australia. To hii democratic
mind they preient an odious example of
grovelling monarchy-worship. They are
mere dependents, who could not stand
alone in tbii wicked world, and who,
deprived of the protection given by the
Biitiih navy would inevitably on the on
hand, disappear into tht capacious maw
of tho United Statei, and on the other

Truly, a Kuropean "combination" offensive and defensive agslnst Brother Jonathan takes the palm for whimsicality,
in au age which hai leen great genial to

But as one whoabhore war, who stands

it ie quite a mistake to think that Mr.

Waihinglon, Out. 2°—The United
Statei Geological Survey estimates the
world'! production of coal in 1001 at
866,165,140 short tons. The three great
coalprodticing countries of the world are
the United States, Groat Britain and
Germany. AuBtria-Huiiii-ary cornea
fourth, France fifth, Belgium sixth and
Ruaiia seventh. The last country, notwithstanding its vast area, produce!
only about 0 per cent as much coal as the
United Statee. Prior to 1899 Great Britain led among the world's coal producers,
but during 1899,1900 and 1001 the United
Statei hat made such remarkable iucrea-
•it in coal production, due principally to
the unprecedented activity in the iron
and iteel and in other metal trades, that
it now ittnd! far in the lead of all competitors, with a production in 1901
txeeeding that of Great Britain by 47,-
966,938 abort tone, or 19 per cent. Up lo
tbe close of 1900 the coal production of
Great Britain and her colonies, taken
together, * stall exceeded tbat of the
United Statee, the excees in 1900 being
3,308,826 short tons; but tbe enormous
output of the coal mines of this country
last year exceeded by about 26,000,000
abort toni the entire output ol Great
Britain and her dependencies, including
India and the Transvaal, Of the output
in 1901, the United States produced
83,86 per cent; Great Britain and her
dependenciei, 30,86 per cent, and Ger
many 19,42 per cent, or combined 81,14
per cent ol the total production.

when they are gilt or steel. Oxydlsed

evening dresses bave already made tbeir
appearance. The new velveteens are so
bsautifully warm and eo delightfully soil
that they can be used practically lor any
smart occaiion.
A determined attempt ll being mtde
to revive the arm scarf that beautieB of
the Empire found eo useful. It is useful
in shooting boxei and draughty country
houses as an adjunct to the evening toil-

preaent continues lo be so really fashionable its white cloth. But there il plenty
of choice for those of ue who want more
modest ideas. Many shades of red cloth
are now worn, varying from quite a brilliant tone to a dark claret. The latter is
most becoming. There is also a pretty
rough, red cloth with tiny etripoe ol
black ou it—not regular stripes, but a
series of dailies. Kough material! are
to be a good deal seen, of tbe smooth
camel-hair type. These will be delicious-

conjunction with dark blue, and etripod

Tha weekly report ol J, W. Harrison,
ol8tnFrancisco, ii as follows: Since
the Bteamer Ventura sailed, there have
been the following arrivals of Australian
coal tt this port: Dora, 1,701 tool; Fran-
ci.co Guliieppe, 2,U40;oua; Dltton, 4,232
toni; total 8,933 tons. Tbere are, in
all leven vessels on the engaged Hit from
Newcaitle, N. S. W„ witb about 20,000
tont carrying capacity. Juit one year
ago there were 37 vessels on the char
tared Hat, with a carrying ctpaoity oi
fully 100,000 toni. Thii clearly demon
Itratee what the Australian coal loading
buiinm meant to thii port. Tbe principal cauee of thii ibrinkage, ai ia known
to all, lithe subititntion of oil for eoal
tl a ttetm produoing tgent, Thii wai
looked tor over a year ago, but it wai not
anticipated tbat Ub influence would become to tpptrent in such a limited space
of time. Another cogent reason for the
small Hit oi vessels to load li the extremely low ratei ol freight at preient
ruling locally ior grain cirgoel fn

Australia product being ao low shippers
can only afford to pay a meagre Irelgbt
rate, henot lulling veneli there mult

Methodist Harvest Festival,
The Harvest Thanksgiving service!
at the Methodist Church were most satisfactory. The church had beon decorated suitably for the occasion and was
much admired. The preacher, already
well known to many of the townspeople
as a former Wellington pastor, was

modation waa taxed. Mr, Evans sang a
solo In excellent voice, On Monday
evening there was again a full house, at
nn entertainment, The visiting minister, paBtor, Eev. Mr, Walker, and Archdeacon Seriven were present. Among
the contributors to an excellent programme were tbe following. Mr. Aubln,
Miss Bertram, Mr. Barron, Miss Jones,

A Cure for Heart Sorrow,
There is no anodyne for lieart-u.-nrow
like ministry to others. If your' life is
woven with tbe dark shades of eorrow,
do not lit down to deplore your hapless
lot, but arise to seek out thoso wbo are
more miserable than you are, bearing
them balm lor their wounds and lone for
their heart-breaks, And if you are unable to give much practical help you may
largely help the cbildron of bitterness by
listening to their tales of woe or to their
dreams of foreboding, The baldened
heart longs to pour out Its tale In a sympathetic *-eor. There Is immonso relief
in the telling out of pain. But it cannot
be hurried; it needs plenty of time. II
you oan do nothing else, Helen well, and
comfort otheri with the comfort wherewith you yourself have been comforted
by God. And aa you listen, and comfort,
and wipe the falling tear, you will discover tbat your own load li lighter, and
that a branch or twig of the true Iree—
the tree of the Cross—has fallen Into the
bitter wastes of your owu life, making
the Marah. Naomi, ond the marines dl
salt tears will have been healed.—Rev
F. B, Meyer.

The scarcity of coal through Ibe country hai bruught into notice new devices
for producing gas, which might be applied to light, heat and motive power
says the Mou ireal Star. Too plan is not

at Three Rivers a couple ol years ago, to
produce gas by tho use ol sawdust. A
few days ago, at the Novitiate ol the

made a successful experiment with old
lumber, cordwood, and cast oft ahoei.
