Referendum Vote Among Crow's
Nest Miners Decisive.
Feksie, April 12—At a mass meet,
ing ot the mineri of Coal Creek and
Fernie held here yesterday afternoon
it was decided by a referendum vote of
741 to 42 to quit work unless the
operator! conceded their demands.
The demands are embodied in the
lollowing circular issued by district
president Sherman:
" In order that the public may
understand what the demands ol the
Canadian mine workers are at this
time, I wish to state thnt we are willing for the sake ol peace thnt the
present standard ol rates shall be continued with an advance ol 10 per cent
upon all rates. The minimum rate
for outside labor shall be $2.50 for a
ten hour day. That wages be paid
every two weekB. That the eight hour
bank to lank day be established at all
mines in Alberta. We do not desire
to enter into any legal technical agreement with any coal company in this
district. An agreement as to wages
and hours will suit. All existing customs to be maintained. We do not
insist upon an open or closed shop.
Neither do we seek to keep any advantage over any coal company in a
legal or technical manner. We are
prepared to negotiate at once with any
company in this district without waiting for an investigation board. F, H.
Sherman, District President.
Premier McBride Goes to England-Will Lay the Claims
of B. C. Before the London
To lay before the Colonial Conference at London the claims of
British Columbia to better terms
than those offered the province as
tlie result of tho famous Ottawa
Conference of Provincial Premier?
some months ago, is tlie mission of
Premier McBride, who passed
through here yesterday, en route
to England, accompanied by his
Private Secretary, Lawrence MclUe.
" I am going to lay the case of
British Columbia before the London conference before the amendment to the British North America
Act, authorizing increases in
Provincial subsidies, is passed,"
declared the Premier." The $100,-
000 which was offered the province
is, as every resident of B. C. is
aware, entirely inadequate, and
that the Ottawa conference realized
that this was the case is shown by
the admission that B. C. because of
its physical characteristics, waB
entitled to special consideration
" I will stop off in Ottawa for a
duy in order to secure my credentials."

Ice Jamb Causes Fracture to
Wing Dam—Strain Heaviest Now.
"Water is a very pecular thing,"
is the standard and general answer
by all employees on the wing dam,
when interrogated as to the possibility
of tbe dam holding this spring against
the expected abnormally high water
this year. The answer is certainly
non-o:mnnttal and yet is a correct
one, (or water when deflected from ils
natural course snd made to go where
it does not seem to have tho inclination, is certainly a "very peculiar
thing." It is almost impos-ible to
judge correctly before hand, the ac ion
ol water when intercepted and turned
into artificial channels by artificial
means and an example ol tins has
been seeu on the wing dam at the
point where tbe new work, of tbe past
year joined Uiob" ol the year before.
At that time there wae only five feet
of water at that point, where as now
there is 20 feet and this continual
washing out of river but has bad the
effect of considerably weakening the
structure, the piling having only a
small holding power in the bed. To
add to the trouble a large j .mb ot ice
freed by the sun and rain came down
the river early Thursday morning, the
whole mass being carried violently
against tho dan. at this point, throwing the piling out ol plumb by several
feet and fracturing the timbers, In
order to save any further destruction,
which would probubly occur owing to
the weak spot in the dam being found,
a large gang of men was concentrated
on repairing the damage and to prevent its repetition by dumping in
masses ol rock behind the piling. The
danger bai beeu averted, as no further weakening lias been reported, but a
carolul watch is being kept in case tho
structure shows sings ol giving way,
If the dam sustains tho pressure ol
tl.e water under the present conditions, seeing that it has no weight ol
water at tbe lower side to countcrnot
tho pressure on tlie upper side, it is
certain that tbe structure will hold
good when tl.e river is at its height
when the pressure is distributed equally over the whole dam, except of
course when friction is taking place.

the break is a serious oue, menacing

Burned to Cinders.
Fort William, April 12.—Information o' an .mini calamity on the C. P.
R. east of Clnipleau has reached here,
but it is impossible to secure anything
like a detailed account of the disaster.
The information is to the effect that
when No. 1 through train from Montreal bad reached a point twenty miles
eist of Chapleau late yesterday several
cars lelt tbe track, and at least two
were overturned into a ditch.
By some means lhe cars were quickly in flames and as quite a number of
pasiengers were underneath an awful
iceno ensued. J uit how many lost
their lives it would be difficult to state
but it is known that eleven persons
were burned practically to cinders and
as all identification papers were con
sumed with them it will be some little
time before it can be determined who
they were.
There must be a large number of
passengers on the Injured list, but information ns to their identity is unavailable.
WiNNii'Kti, April 12.—An ollicial
statement made by the manage
ment of the C. P. ll. in reference to
the horrible disaster to the west
bound express yesterday near
Chapleau station, states that there
wore 15 lives lost. Nine ndul..-.
and six children went down to
their death and iheir bodies were
According to official statements
the train wus running at the usual
rate of speed, about 22 miles east of
Chapleau, being the regular transcontinental train whicli left Montreal on Tuesday morning, when
the train was partly derailed by a
broken rail, The cars ran down
an embankment and caught lire,
said to have arisen from the
cooking range. It is believed that
most of the dead were occupants of
the tourist car and were pinned
down in the wreckage and were
either killed outright or cremated
as the lire consumed the wreckage.
Their names are: William Hay,
London, Eng,; Winnie and Susan
Morton, Charing Heath, Kent,
England; 0, S, Goulding, his
brother ond his brother's wife and
two children, of I'alistow, Essex,
England; Mrs. Bjorkland and
children of Worcestor, Mass.; Mrs.

Revelstoke Districl and Arrow
Lake is now Favorite—Latest Phase of Boom in Koote-
nays-A Growing Area.
Dealing in Kootenay fruit lands lin
lately token on a new phase, nnd one
uf very considerable importance, Al-
though it may involve a diminution ol
profits to land dealers in inland citieB
nnd towns, it will probably mean n
much more extensive and rapid settlement ol the country by ranchers.
Fruit growing has taken a decided
hold on the interests of the people of
Revelstoke und indeed the whole of
the district, and now that the possibilities of fruit becoming a staple
pro luct of this part ot the province
are becoming better known, and the
realization of the fertile nnd productive nature of the soil, especially in
this vicinity, has evolved in the minds
ol the peoplo, a very short timo uill
elapse h. fore Kootenay Iruit will be in
tl.o forefront of the markets of the
world. The available fruit lands along
the shores of the Arrow Lukes ure
being rapidly tnken up while ninny
acres havo already been developed.
While owners of some of these may be
willing to sell tbey will do so only ut
prices for proved nnd developed properties. It bus been demonstrated
that the estimates of the extent of the
fruit land in Kootenay ninde ns lute its
two years ngo and characterized nt
that time by many ns wild exaggerations, arc Inr short of the actual facts
Nenrly three-quarters of the land bordering on the Arrow L.ikcs, and adjacent to the Columbia River in tbe
Revelstoke valley, is splendid Iruit
laudjhr example as the total length
ol the lake from Arrowhead to RobBon
is 117 miles, and as for nearly ball
thut distance tlie BhoreB Blope back
very gently to the ridges Bonie estimate may be formed of the total urea
aviiilnble for cultivation under Iruit.
Theu again, there are acres upon acres
of riel) alluvial soil, at our very doors,
which lund is made accessible to the
city by a trallic bridge, and it cleared
and plnnted with trees, would not
only augment the fruit growing industry in the Kootenuys but also would
materially and directly benelit Revelstoke and add another attraction for
capital to come in. , Prospective Bet-
tiers still prefer, and will probably lor
some time continue to prefer locations
with a north Blope, und moreover the
proximity to u market and to a reBi-
dentinl city, us well us a good climate
und the iiiitural beauties ol the locu-
lion, all contribute to that result.
But there in a large class of settlers
with whom such consideration as
scenery, climate, etc., hardly count.
They want the host they can get and
in fertility the shores of the Arrow
Lakes are at least as go,..!, if not better
il.aii the much talked ol Okanagan—
and they want ii as cheap as they can

Eight Per Cent Advance on
all Divisions in the West
—Pay to be $1.62 per Day
—Both Parties Satisfied.
Winnipeg, Man., April 12.—The
trackmen on the C. P. R. between
Fort William and the Pacific coast
will receive an increase of eight per
cent over their present wage schedule.
The conference between the railway
officials and the committee represent*
ing ths interests ol the men, which
haa been going on Ior aome time, will,
fn all probability be concluded today,
according to' the statements of the
men. They further assert tbat tl.e
new arrangementt which are being
made, are satisfactory to both parties.
The committee of the trackmen
have been in the city for some time,
during which meetings have been
secured wilh Second Vice-Prea. Wm.
Whyte, General Manager G. J. Bury
and Engineer J. E. Schwitzer. The
request Inr an increase in pay was laid
belore the officials on the ground that
the increased prosperity ol the road
and the costs ol living entitled the
trackmen to a greater remuneration.
The present wage lor eectionmen is
11.50 to $1.55 per day. This will be
raised to range between $1.62 snd
$167 per day.
The change effects all the section
men between Fort William and the
Pacific, involving some 6500 miles of
road, In thia territory there are about
720 sections employing anywhere between 1500 and 2500 men.
Great Northern Acquires Many
Roads—3,000 Miles to be
Laid in Five Years.
Minneapolis, Min., April 12.—Now
tbat the Supreme Court of Minnesota
haa decided that the Great Northern
Railway company may invest $60,000,-
0P0 more capital in the ayatem, the
first thing the new management will
do will be to acquire the following
lines, which will at once become in
integral part of the Great Northern
system: Dakota & Great Northern,
Montana & Great Northern, Billings
& Northern, Washington & Northern,
in the State of Washington; Portland
& Seattle, in ths State of Oregon;
Vanoouver, Victoria & Eastern Railway 4 Navigation Company, in Britiih
Columbia; Brandon & Saskatchewan,
in the province oj Saskatchewan, and
ths Midland Railroad of Manitoba.
These branch linee, which are in
themselves the foundations ol great
systems in their respective territories,
will come under the supervision of Mr.
Louis Hill.
The outline ol the scheme ie aB (ol
lows: Ten million dollars acquired
through new stock will be applied on
Western Canada extensions. The system to be projected will be the equal
ol the present Hill lines in the United
imy.iiK buwih" 1...1*..iM"..    v..   ........
where extensive improvements are  to
be made during the season.
In order to further increase the "ili
ciency ol their cold storage trade service, the Canadian Pacific railway is
buildingan extensive refrigerator warehouse at Liverpool, which will be used
exclusively lor their trans Atlantic
trade. By this step it wilt be possible
for goods to be transferred in oold
storage from British Columbia to the
British market with only two changes
—Irom the train to the ship and from
the ship to the Liverpool warehouse,
where they will await shipment to the
Cold Spring Rains will Kill Cattle that Survived Winter
P. Burns, the big cattleman ol the
west, in a recent interview said: "At
least a loss ot 10 per cent of the stock
ol ranchers in the West is almost certain, and a substantial lise in the
price ol beef is therelore assured.
Cattle ranchers ol the Weat will do
well if they come through the present
winter with not more than an average
loss ol 10 per cent of their stock.
"That the past winter has been une
ol prolonged and exceptional severity
goes without Baying, but it is equally
certain that tbe actual loss to ranchers has been largely exaggerated. The
reports ol colossal losses published in
American papers are ol course lar
beyond the mark, and carry their own
condemnation with them. The damage done, however, lias undoubtedly
been great, and no proper estimate of
it can be, aa yet, given. The enow ia
still lying so deep on the prairies that
riders cannot cover the ground in
order to ascertain just what the actual
losses are. Two or three daya ol cold
rains, which olten come iu the springtime, would oause even greater damage, as hundreds of the already weakened cattle would be unable to withstand any unlav>.rable weather.
"Tbe losses which have occurred ure
chiefly east ol Medicine Hat. Among
the foothills between Calgary and
Macleod, where leed haa been plentiful snd easily obtainable, there haa
been practically no loss.
"That the price of beef will be affected there iB not the alightest doubt,
I anticipate a substantial rise in ths
price of cattle and beet belore the season is far advanced.
Agreement Between Western
Railways and Firemen.
The agreement between 31 railroads
west of Chicago and the Brotherhood
ul Locomotive firemen and engineers
has been signed. The pay of the firemen ot all classes ol engines ia to be
increaaed 26 cents per day of 10 hours
or leas, 100 miles or,leaa, ovsr the rate
of pay in effect Jan. 1,1907. No
ohange ia made in computing time,
. ani the advance ii not to apply to
men working on a basis ol 12J miles
per hour, The rate of firemen in
first class yards is to be $2.25 per day
ol ten houraj overtime pro rata. In
all other ysrda the rate ia to be $2,15,
The maximum rats tor firemen in ths
paaaenger service on engines having
cylinders under 18 inches in diamete
is to be $2.25 per day of 100 milea or
leaa, and $2.60 on engines having 18
inch cylinders or over. An increase
ot 15 cents per day ol 100 milea or leaa
is given to firemen on engines carrying a rate ol $2.50 or more. In addition to the increase ol pay the firemen
are to be relieved ol all work ol olean-
ing engines. The increase granted to
tbe firemen la estimated to be about
in the same ratio to that recently
granted to the conductors and trainmen,

Rich Deposits Found in the
Lillooet District.
Victoria, April 12.—From time to
time there haa been discovered in the
placer, mines ot , tbe Cariboo and
Lillooet ssnd containing platinum,
which la more valuable than gold ol
the same weight, A. W. Smith, ol
Lillooet, brought to the city a smalt
quantity of this crude platinum,
which a prospector had recovered
from the dirt in washing Ior gold.
The sand waa turned over to the provincial mineralogist, W. Fleet Robert-
eon, with a request to place it on the
Mr. Robertson did so, and sent tbe
two ounces to where he lelt the beat
results would be obtained. He has
received a cheque for $50 for the two
ounces or $25 an ounce. Thia has
been turned over to Mr. Smith for
the prospector.
The platinum sand, it will be seen
trom thia, ia very valuable. Hitherto
the difficulty haa been in the recovering of it from the dirt.
Royalty ol Two and One-Half
Per Cent, too Small
Ottawa, April 11.—On the aecond
reading of the Yukon Bill, Senator
MscDonald, Britiah Columbia, complained that the gold produced went
out of the country, the royalty 2} per
cent, being too small. Enough could
be taken out ol ths products of the
country to pay the costs of administration. He thought that the administration of the Yukon ahould be turned
over to Britiah Columbia.

Says Prince Rupert is a Splendid
'    Inspector of Agencies Bredt Returns
from Norlhern Trip
P. M. Bredt, of Regina, Dominion Government inspector of agencies and foreign
colonics, has returned to Victoria, accompanied by Mrs. Bredt.
In lhc fall of last year Mr. Bredt visited
lhc coast for the benefit of liis health impaired hy loo close application to the
arduous duties of Ilia office and made his.
headquarters in Victoria. The balmy:
climate of lliis Island had its customary
effect and in a few weeks Mr. Bredt was
sufficiently recovered to make many excursions about Ilic Island taking notes of
its conditions and advantages; and among
oilier Iuiiii ions, lie attended llie Cowichan
agricultural exhibition at Duncans, where
In- acted as one of the judges, afterwards
taking a sea Irip up lhc wesl coast as far
as Port Si..ipso...
"My opinion of Victoria and its surroundings," said Mr. Bred!, "is sufficiently
expresseil by the fact that f have taken
the earliest opportunity of coining back
again to spend my summer holiday with
yon and that 1 have brought Mrs. Bredt
thia time to share niy enjoyment, I have
this year repeated my west coast trip, Ihis
time extending il as far as Skagway. Il
is certainly the most picturesque country
1 one could imagine. We were delighted
and surprised at ils grandeur, it is like
several Xorways in one wonderful panorama. Among many othcr changes for
(he belter Ihal 1 noticed,was lhat of the
improved conditions of travel. The boat
in which we made Ilic trip was commodious and comfortable, luxuriously fitted
with thc latest improvements, with the
additional recommendation ol good cuisine and attendance, a good seaboat, a
genial commander and pleasant and capable ollicers. Wc enjoyed the trip immensely and were fortunate enough to
have as fellow passengers President Hays
and parly of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Raiiroad. We had thus a chance to visit
Prince Rupert. In my opinion it is an
ideal location for the terminus and the
harbor is unsurpassed on the coast. At
present lhc hydrographic survey is still
incomplete and mariners enter for the
first time with natural caution, but once
having made the entrance they say that
they would have no fear about entering at
any time. While we were there the
the weather was very slormy with a nasty
sea running outside. Inside, however, it
was perfectly calm, the position being
well protected from the prevailing winds.
"Certainly," cootinucd Mr.Brcdt, "there
is room there for a greal city and Digby
Island would make an ideal suburb or
summer resort. Communication would
have to he by ferry 1 Ihink, though the
dividing passage is narrow and the distance short; not greater than between
Nortli Vancouver and Vancouver city, if
as far; it would be practically a part of
the city.
"There is plenty o-f activity in evidence
at Prince Rupert; houses for Hie engineers
are being rapidly constructed and gangs
of men are busy clearing land for the
townsite. Already there is a very serviceable wharf which they intend to extend immediately, and everything seems
to point to quick development.—Victoria
A GROUP of people were dismissing
the popularity of a mutual acquaintance, and were i* little al
loss to account for it. The man
was not specially attractive, witty or
clever, His manner was rather brusque,
his mode of speech often rugged, yet he
counted his warm friends by the score.
"I believe," said one young girl, "it

"Your frankness, like that ot most

sweetly.   **is the hat really unbecoming,

Well, yes, but with Its element ol

OOD NIGHT, Miss Mary.
Sweet dreams to you when
you get to bed, and dun't
furget  about Uncle."
"No, dear, I'll not forget."
And, with a final tuck und pat, Miss
Mary left her little charge. Then
she took her embroidery down to the
library, where sat the master of the
house, Doctor Mabey.
"Well, Miss Mary." he said, greeting her entrance with a smile, "Is our
Princess Snowball safely in bed?"
"Y?s, Doctor, and her last word was
'Don't forget about Uncle,' so I shall
tell you at once what the child is
thinking about."
"Aha! She has something on her
mind, has,she?"
"Yes, a very Important matter, Indeed."
"This aftornnun she was reciting
her spelling lessnn tu nic nnd nn-' uf
the words was 'helpmeet.' She asked
fm* ihe meaning, and l explained it
ns well as 1 knew- huw, She sal in
silent thought for a few moments,
then she said, 'Since Ainu Janie's
death. Uncle has had nn helpmeet
then, Miss Mary. Hut why can't 1
barn lu help him? 1 want tu, indeed
I   dn.'"
"Bless her little heart!' murmured
the .   ctor under his breath,
"So then she begged me tu tell her
what Sin- COUld dn tn be n helpmeet
to her uncle. Apd 1 lold her I would
think about It and tell her in thi'
morning, And it was to be a secret
from you until she was ready for you
to be told. But, of course, I had to
tell you tonight so as tu get your advice. What do you think 1 had better tell her tomorrow?"
"The   sweet   child!"   exclaimed   the
Doctor.  "I will tell vou, Miss Mary,
what she can do. She oan go out with
me tomorrow, If it Is a nice day, on
my rounds, and bring up the subject
herself, nnd I shall tell ber whnt she
can do to be Uncle's little helpmeet."
And   thus  It came  about  that  the
following day Snowball I little Princess

of her problem how she might become

"Yes, dear."

gravely Into the little girl's eyes.
"Yes, Snowball. You can, if you
"Oh, I will, Uncle, gladly! I should
be so pleased to be a helper to you."
"Very well, my dear. You can help
me by helping those whom 1 would
help if I could. But it takes time to
really help sick and unfortunate people, and I—a busy doctor—can only
give medicine and money, not lime.
Don't you see how you can be my
little helpmeet? I'll give medicine
and money. You'U give time-that
will complete the circle of usefulness."

Snowball's face fell.
"But don't you think  we ought to
give her the money, Miss Mary?"

"■No, Indeed!" replied the Doctor,
when the question was put to him
some hours later. "You wiil soon

"I'll do it!" cried Snowball.
They had driven nway from the
grand avenues and were now in a region of dingy, narruw streets and eruwd-
ed tenement houses.
"Stop at No, 5W, James." saiti the
Doctor,  then  to Snowball:
"Now, while T am In this house, my
dear, do you just keep your eyes open
and without appearing tn look, just
notice the people as they pass, and
think what it means to be very poor
and unfortunate In a big city."
Fifteen minutes later, when the Doctor   had   tucked   '•'  "   under   the
robe and directed James to the next
stopping place, Snowball spoke again:
"Uncle, you said you could not give
time. But surely those poor people
can't pay you, so don't you give your
time as well as medicine to them?"
"Well, yes, In a good many cases I
do," admitted the Doctor, "but still I
oan only spnre just enough timo to look
after the ones who are sick, not the
other members of tbe family, who
often ""ed a helper quite as much as
th- sl-    "nes need a doctor.
"Now, take the O'Briens, whom I
have just visited. The rather was
killed by an express train several
months ngo. The mothor has just had
her right hand cut off In the factory
wh"re she has been working, and now
that she cannot work, she and her
little children are facing starvation,
no du .ot."
"Oh, Uncle! What can we do to help
"That's the question, Snowball. I
have not the time to stop and Inquire
abo-..t these things, My time belongs
to the sick.   But you—"
"Ah, yes, I have the time ana I'll
use it to help you, Uncle dear. That's
settled. So now let's talk about what
I'm t«   do and when."
When Snowball renehed home, she
was full of the new project.
"Miss Mary. It is all settled. I'm to
i)e Uncle's little helpmeet, and he says
you will be glad to help, too. Yes?
Oh, I'knew you would. We're to have
nice old Jim—he's a lovely old horso
—and go to seo all the people Uncle
puts down on my list. And when you
enn't go, Uncle says Andrew (the buller) will. And now, first of all, lets
find out what to do for the O'Briens."
In a few rapidly uttered sentences,
she told the sad story of the O'Briens.
"And Unelc says," she concluded,
"that Mrs. O'Brien mentis.ed having

Galtfornia Peppers in a
Graceful Blou/e
*T T  THATHVER else a woman may
\/\/     or may not dispense with In
» » planning her spring trous*
Beau, she must have a certain number of blouses and white waists-
plain, heavier ones for morning wear
end the daintiest possible for afternoon.
With all the recent muttering of
"wolf" apropos of the passing of the
separate waist, the fatal day of Ita
final going has not yet arrived. It
still remains one of the lndispcr.sablos
for informal occasions. What though
a woman no longer considers herself
fashionably attired should she don
the sweetest dream of a waist with a
dark skirt, and even in summer prefers the entire lingerie gown for
"dressy" wear, the separate waist still
has Us niche-and a very Important
one ll fs.
Since we couldn't get along without
It. it is very consoling to hear that In
Paris the lingerie blouse is more ln
vogue than ever—elbow sleeves and
all—particularly the embroidered ones.
Imported blouses are, unfortunately,
beyond the reach of the average woman; but If she can embroider, what
matters it? Tor nolliing but the eost
of the materlal-whlch may be much
or little, as her allowance will permit, though the finer the lawn, mull
or linen, the better-the results-a
charming ani! handsome blouse can
be evolved.
The California • epper used In today's design Is a particularly happy
choice for a blouse, as It unites grace,
daintiness and elaborate effect with
comparatively little work.
It is adapted to any material, eilher
cotton, silk or fine, smooth wools and
to colored or white embroidery; but
most women will doubtless prefer to
use either a sheer handkerchief linen
or Persian lawn and mercerized cottons.
Just the front is given, but the detached designs may easily be applied
to other parts of the waist. The two
upper sprays may be run uno on each
eide of the facing in the back, and the
horizontal spray may bc adapted to
the cuff.
As the pepper is a little stiff for the
collar, it might be woll to make it
of insertion, connected with narrow bands of the material worked
with dots to match the Individual
berry. If preferred, the cuffs may be
made in the same way, und the horl-
tontal spray used on the upper part of
the sh eve puff, which will be much
trimmed this coming season.
Thia design wilt be extremely easy
to take off by using impression paper,
and may be adapted In the way suggested ever, by the novice.
For working on the linen or any
Sheer goods, choose a very fine mercerized i otton Pad the b aves q lite
heavily with darning cotton and work
In a smooth satin stitch. Do tho stem
In a twisted outline or a very Uny
French stem -stitch.
The peppers and & U may be in satin
lUtch ir eyelet, aa one prefers. If you
are not tired -' the latter it gives a very
pretty open effect to the waist

problem thai confronts many
women in those days W. men
of large means arc inexcusable if they
arc not always daintily and appi iprl

tholr less fortunate sisters must em-

There are women who succeed in
malting a good appearance upon a hundred dollars a year or even less, but

MRS. N  is nt heart one
of the kindest women of my
acquaintance," remarked a
woman who Is having a hard struggle to maintain an existence, as (he
door closed after a recent caller,
"but she has u faculty for doing
renlly nice things In a way to mako
starvation seem a positive Joy by contrast. Tliis morning she came to tell
me that she had secured the work for
me that 1 have been hoping for for
weeks, nnd her visit hns left me not
exalted over my success, bul thoroughly depressed and at war with myself
and heaven and earth."
"There Is such a difference in thc wf y
nlco things are dono by different people," remarked the friend to whom sho
was speaking, thoughtfully, "and It
isn't always suavity or apparent gra-
clousness of milliner that makes the receiving of a favor pleasant.. I havo known
those who were considered lo have a
positive genius for tact to do things in
a way that simply left you wrilhlng,
and yet there really wasn't a word that
you cuuld put yuur finger un or n trick
of manner to which you could object,"
"Yes, 1 know," replied the first
speaker sadly, "I've been through ll all
hi the puut few months, and 1 have
almost come to (he conclusion that it Is
the rough-spoken, apparently self-absorbed people who do nice things fur
you in the nicest way,   There was Dr.
B  who attended me when I was eo
111 In the spring. He only came a few
times, but lhe trouble was serious, and
1 know it was his skill that brought rne
through and saved me from bad aftereffects.
"He did not send In his bill, so finally
I wrote for It, and In reply received a
curt note to thin effect: "Vou have no
bill with me-yuu wijuld have got well
just as quick if you hadn't sent for me>,
and 1 never lake money that 1 don't
earn.' "
"It didn't sound specially gracious,"
t*ald the friend, "but 1 think 1 catch
ynur drift, Vou weren't left with a
sense of obligation, and, after all, thnt
la one of the worst feelings In the
world. 1 hate doing things for peoplo
who feel that they must return (hem,
and I hate having things done for mo
by people who feel that I must return
in kind or else remain their everlasting
"It's only a wny they hnvo, 1 suppose," sighed the first woman, ns sho
turned back to hor work, "but tho
world would be a much more comfortable place for those of us who haven't
struck luck If the word obligation could
be cut out."
THE Philologist, the Purist and the
Poet were gathered ingether.
"Yes," said the Purist, apropos
of nothing, "what the English language
needs above all is a wmd in supply iho
place of 'his or her.' When I say,
'Every man und woman loves his or
her parents,' 1 am correct, but awkward If I substitute 'their' 1 am un-
grammatical. We need badly a word
tu take lho pluce of this Inconvenient
'his ur her,' "
"The Ksperanttsts," remarked tho
Philologist, "use 'onl,' taken from tbo
French." But no one paid any attention to him, for the Poet was speaking.
"What 1 want," said he, "Is a lot o|
rhymes for rhymetess English words,
Look at the words for which there Is no
rhyme: 'Orange,' and 'month,' and
'window' nnd 'scissors'—all without any
exactly corresponding words. And all
common words, too, and easily adapt*

words I can't remember now, aud shnll
not until I get them info a poem and
have to change a verse to accommodate
"Well," snid the Philologist, "you people may say what yuu like about new

when once one lias seen lhe
ridiculous side of It, A laugh
salves the smart of defeat and blunts

The funny side of our Initial experiences in Swiss cookery was quick in
coming to the front. It lay In the discovery that not one of our family party
could speak the language of the region
in which we had pitched our moving
toiil for six months. An.l this although
u year in Italy ha.I glvon half of tho
number a colloquial acquaintance with
tin* musical, facile tongue. Granted n
tolerable familiarity with Bpoken and
written French and a substratum of
Latin, and Italian was the easiest of
lingual tasks. We had furbished up our
French In anticipation nf tin* year in the
Swiss KfjnihUc. for was it not tho vernacular of the fret-horn Swltser?
A Trying Lingual Experience
"Boy," now 5 years of age, and a glib
chatterbox in three languages, was one
of the tirst to proclaim our formidable
disability. Returning, red Of face and
swelling with rage, from a visit to the
excellent fruit market on tho shore of
the lake along which ran the crooked
strcots of the historic town, ho thus relieved his humble SOUli "1 asked an old
woman how she sold her grapes, and she
Bald a lung nonsense I had never heard
before.   And   when   l   told   her  'Non
CnplSCO Tedeseo,' silt' luUghed ill  Uie.    It
was good Italian, and meant 1 don't understand yuur horrid "id Dutch!"
We laughed, too, al tho small man's
disenmiiture, ami brought our proverbial
family philosophy to hear upon countless similar experiences no less surprising and Inconvenient, the unlooked-for
obstacles to settling down comfortably
In mn- choBon nesi. The Bpeeon of tho
common people of Lucorno nnd the surrounding region is a wretched patois of
blended Gorman and Fronon, wiih n
smock of Italian, Introduced, as our disgusted Parisian professor used to say—
"pour la rendiv plus dlfllcllo." As if It
wore nut diilieiili enough already in
make ihe earlier weeks of our sojourn In
Helvetian lodgings a series of distractions!
From lirst In lasl, the fruit market in
which "Hoy" had his hard lesson was a
BUrpI'lBO and a delight. Gronos, Iigs,
oranges, pears, nospolls (a novelty to us)
uml berries were a delicious Jumble that
set season at dellance. We ate Alpine
strawborrios in Novomber and grapes
and pears at ihe same meal.

An Uncomplaining Maid
Breakfast was served in the salon
upon a table drawn directly In front
of the hearth. It was brought up
from, the lodging-house kitchen, three
flights below, upon a huge nay, bomo
by a pretty maid nbout live feot two
inches in height, "When Marie comes

The Swiss breakfast differed from the
usual continental pattern in nothing
save lhat marmalade of some kind was
an invariable accompanlmenl of rolls
and coffee, and thai a slab of tough
Swiss . hi' se balanced tho butler, Nobody ever ate it, and, for all wo know,
the samo slab may have mounted

nre as strong on cheese as are the
Netherlnnders. 1 do not recollect thai it
ever failed to appear In some form at

ing the eight months we passed in the
tight little republic, Nor that break-
fust or luncheon was ever set before us
that did not display a glass dish of
"confitures," alias Jam, alias marmalade. The abundance and nll-thc-yenr-
nround supply of fruits may account for
tne crazo In this line. Every housewife
puts up her own fruit. "Canned goods"
have no harbor lu her larder. The
