In Europe twenty million men will lay dowu their arms and return
to the avocations of peace. Millions of them will, for a time at least,
be unemployed. A large number unquestionably will look to the Dominion as the country of their opportunity. The march on Canada will
be magnificent—if we are ready for it. But the men who come will he

"Nltro-glycerine!" echoed the first,
pronouncing every syllable, his eyes

Ontario and, as was their custom,
they made an examination of the

I'll And him. You go back," said
the second guard.
"Oh, no! I'll find the boss," said
the first guard, his cheeks paling.
"We'll both go," they eventually
agreed, and ln fifteen minutes three
forms could be seen on a handcar
dashing madly along the track toward the bridge. They stopped
about twenty yards from the bridge
and under the direction of the two
shivering guards "the boss" descended Into the hollow under the bridge.
Gingerly he approached the Bpot

Queen Anne's Gifts.
The   old    Mohawk   church   near
Brantford, one of the oldest churches
I ln Ontario,  has many relics of hiu-
| torlc interest still ln Its possession,
i among them a sliver communion ssr-
| vice presented by Queen Anne, which
1 bears the royal arms and the lnscrlp-
1 tlon,   "The   Gift   of    Her    Majestr
Anne, by the Grace of God of Great
Britain and Ireland and Her Plantations tn North  America,  Queen,   to
her Indian Chappell of the Mohawks,
1712."    A Bible,   also   the   gift   of
Queen Anne, ls Inscribed  with   the
names of royal visitors.    Both Bible
and communion service were deeply
revered by the Indiana and guarded
most Jealously.     They  were  burled
hy the   Indians   during   the   war   of
! 1812-14 and restored later to their
present position.
The tablets, altar cloth and royal
j coat-of-arms of George III., above
I the entrance, were sent from Eng-
' land by the Government in 1876.

Gas Below Standard.
The gu inspectors of the Dominion Inland Revenue Department have
found some remarkable conditions
ln a few Canadian cities, according
to the annual report of the department Issued at Ottawa.
In regard to Illuminating power
SI testa out of 23 ln Victoria, B.C.,
showed the gas to be below the
standard. In Winnipeg 75 out of
I 102 tests were below the standard,'
] In Ottawa 26 out of 82 tests were
the same. |
In Toronto, Montreal, St. John
and the majority of the other cities
and towns the gas was up to the
standard for Illuminating power.
The Inspectors of gas meters In
Toronto found that 198 had to be
rejected, of which 124 were too fast,
In Hamilton 73 were rejected, In
Belleville 34, and ln Peterboro,'
Woodstock and Ottawa none.
The report on electrical eneregy
■hows that the amount generated for
use In Canada was almost exactly
equal to the amount exported ln the
last flacal year. There was 117,986
horsepower for home um and 118,-
207 for export. The chief exporting companies were the Ontario
Power Co., which exported 43,900
out of Its total of 106,000 horsepower generated, and the Canadian
Niagara Co., which exported 81,241
out of 62,988*. The total horsepower |

■Chief Executives of Montreal and To*

A new vocation has sprung up for
Mayors of Canadian citiees. They are
being called into service as matrimonial agents. Every now and again
the chief executive of an eastern city
gets a letter from a bachelor somewhere, usually in the west asking him
to pick out a bride from the city's
attractive damsels. One of the clvlo

Martin, M.P. Last spring he announced that he had work for everybody
that wanted lt. There were five thousand men at the City Hall the next
day looking for the job. They followed him to bis bome on Logan avenue and pestered him so much that
he had to have police protection. _'*■

Now, however, he has a worse task
