"It is cruel that you should be
deprived of every pleasure because
home one else met a sud lute by
going to the city. Many a sailor is
lost at sea, but that does not deter
others from breasting the billows.
Your fate would be different from
that of the poor, pretty girl who
sleeps under the aaisies yonder. But
never mind; somo day you will marry,
and your husband can take you to
the city, Vou are so bright, so
vivacious, you would enjoy life
—eva blushed red as1 a rose, looking shyly at him from beneath her
dark, curling lashes, but could lind
no words in which to answer him.
Days lengthened into weeks and the
weeks into months. For two months
Oscar Glendenning had tarried beneath that roof, loath to leave the
little red farm-house half buried beneath the trailing rose-vine and golden-hearted honeysuckles, though he
had been able to use both arm and
ankle long since. And at last it became whispered about among the
farm-hands that there 'was an attraction at the old farm-house for
the handsomo city chap, and that tho
attraction was Neva, Farmer Cray's
pretty  daughter.
John Anderson, one of the helpers
on tho farm, hoard these whispers
with compressed lips and- darkening
brow, bending his head still lower
over his work, but speaking no word.
Neva was Tout a little child when
he had come to work for Farmer
('■ray, ten years before, and ho wus a
lad of seventeen. For ten years he
had watched her grow in health and
beauty, and he had learned to love
her as the apple of his eye. He had
been very frugal, and had laid b_. a
goodly little sum 'against a rainy
day. Ho had his day-dreams, loo,
and they were golden and roseate as
the flush of a sunny summer morning. His heart was in his work; he
was toiling hard to save enough to
buy the little farm across th'i way;
and then, perhaps, Neva Gray would
many him, he often said to himself;
and he whistled away or sung snatches of song over his work, quite as
happy as the day was long.
But from the moment the city chap
crossed the threshold of the old red
farm-house, life had gone wrong with
him. Neva did not como down any
more to the stile to watch him as lu
drove home tho cows, ner linger in
tho deep meadow grass for a little
chat as he wended his way homo from
work through tho Holds. It was all
different now. The city chap, Glendenning, was always "bv her side, from
early morning until the bright sturs
came out in the sky. John Anderson bent his. head lower and lower
over his toil, and his lips grew more
compressed and his nature moro
mori.se. No one knew of the terrible
ti'ight that had fallen over hiin, eating at his heart like a worm at tho
ho^rt of a sturdy tree.
He grew to hate Glendenning with
. a deadly hatred born of direful jealousy. He hated his white, soft hands,
handsome face and Hue ways, and he
Jonged.for the time when he should
Bo on liis wny, leaving the old red
farm-house and the treasure jt contained far behind him. Once away
from her, ho felt quite sure that ho
would soon forget the pretty, winsome face of lovely Neva Gray. As
for the girl, she might miss him for
many a day, but in time her .life
would drift bark once more into the
name old channel in wliich it had run
ko uneventful before the handsome
stranger had crossed her path,
Neva's father, too, had begun to
wonder why the stranger tarried beneath his roof now that ho was perfectly able to resume his journey. Tho
farmer's wife grew a trifle uneasy,
too. She did not like to see Neva
strolling about under the light of tho
moon with the fascinating stranger.
The girl's happy, ringing laugh grated harshly on her ears. At last sho
spoke to her husband about the matter, and was quite surprised to learn
that he, too, feared that Mr. Glendenning was making himself altogether
too agreeable to Neva, and they both
agreed that it could do no harm to
suggest to tho hnndsome stronger
that he had no reason to linger longer, and that ho was in good condition to go where he liked, both arm
and ankle being entirely well. And
to make his leaving them imperative,
the fnrmer had concluded to suy that
a party from the city, who always
engaged that room evory year at
that season, had written to say that
they might expect him any day. lie
could not well remain after that.
Glendenning listened to the awkwardly worded fabrication with something very like a covert smile on the
lips his fair,drooping moustache covered.
"I was just about to toll you that
I l'iavo vou    to-marrow."    ko said,
siinYe.y. Hi- could Huve laughed out-
right to see the farmer's honest old
face br.ighten, strive hnrd as he could
to repress his delight at this intelligence.
"We'll miss you n heap, Mr. Glendenning. But 1 allow you'll bo glad
to git back 'lnong your friends," he
"I shall leave behind me the plea-
santest friends I have ever known,"
Glendenning suid,  gallantly.
"I reckon everybody heroabouts'll
bo powerful sorry to see you go,''
said the farmer, pulling vigorously
at. his pipe.
For a little while silence fell between them, and Glendenning took
his hat and strolled out into the
grounds. Down by the gate Neva
was waiting (or him, as he knew she
would be.
"1 have been here an hour, Mr.
Glendenning," she said, pouting a
little. "I—I—almost, thought you
hud forgotten me."
"Mister!" he repeated, reproachfully. "Why so formal on this day,
above all others, iVcva? You pain
me; and as to forgetting you, am 1
not about to prove to you to-day
that it will be impossible for me ever
to forget you, in this world or the
The little hand on the gate crept
confidingly into his. Her pretty head
drooped, and she looked up at him
shyly with her dark, bright eyes.
"I am going to make you my wife
to-day, Neva," he suid, with dignity.
"That is proof positive that I cau
never forget you."
"It seems a little hard not to say
anything to father or mother about
it," murmured the girl, ruefully;
"and not exactly right, Roger" ; tikis
falteringly. "1 wish we did not have
to keep it a secret."
"It will only be for a little while,"
answered Glendenning. "Surely, if
you love me, Neva, you will make so
slight a sacrifice uncomplainingly for
The girl sighed.
"Perhaps vo'u know best, Roger,"
sho said, adding, alter a little pause:
"Would you mind ' telling uie one
thing that I would givo the world
to know?"
"I will tell you anything you ask
of nie," ho replied.
"Then tell nie if you ever loved
any other girl but nie?" breathed
Neva, softly.
For an instant a dead silence fell
between them as they walked slowly
arm in arm together down the country path. Only Heaven knows what
impulse prompted him to answer her
truthfully, when {he simple word
"No" would have saved him so much
"Y'es, Neva, I have loved before I
met you," he answered, knocking oil
the heads of the daisies recklessly
with his walking-stick, "I loved "a
proud and beautiful girl who did not
care for me. She laughed at my declaration of love and turned niy
words against mo into a fine joke.
We met often after that, but I never
resumed the subject. She was too
haughty and I was too proud, and
ho ono ever knew that I had dared
to lovo her, not even her father."
"What was her name?" asked
Neva, huskily.
Ho hesitated. Was it best to tell
littlo Neva?. Ah, well, why not?
They would never meet; the whole
width of the world would soon be
lying between them.
"Will you not tell me?" whispered
Neva,  wistfully.
"Her name was Olive Kneeland,"
he answered.
Sho repeated it Softly under her
breath, telling herself that she should
never forgot that name.
What a beautiful Sabbath day it
was! How bright tho sun looked
sailing In the cloudless sky overhead;
how its bright beams twinkled, and
how joyously the song-birds twittered in the green boughs overhead, as
though sorrow was unknown to them.
There was to be a camp-meeting
down the road, and all the farmers
for miles around would be there, and
after it was over and they had gona
to their different homes, Glendenning
had planned that the marriage should
take place.
He was really fond of the pretty,
innocent young creature, she had cast
such a strange influence over him. Hq
had never experienced such an odd
sensation before, partly of awe and
partly of worship, and he had met
lovely women the world over. For
thn first time in his life, Oscar
Glendenning folt his own unwort.hi-
ness. He wished he hud led a better
life. Her greatest, charm for him lay
in the fact that the girl know nothing whatever of the great world outside. She was a child of nature, and
a» free from guile as an angel. It
hid puzzled him from tho Hist to
know how to talk to her, what to
sf.y to her. He never attempted to
flutter her as ho hud flattered other
Ui'-Su»    -_»■'-__.  ...ler    _iu__i_.it   thoughts
aiid artless 'waf of phrasing them
captivated him completely, and he
often said to himself that had lie
met her years before life would havo
been different with him. He was in
deadly fear lest she should ever find
out what his past lifo had been, or
of the crime that hung even then,
like a dark, formidable cloud, over
his guilty head. He would never
have thought of asking her to link
her bright young life with his, hnd
not the teai'6 sprung to her lovely
dark eyes and her lip quivered when
he told her ho was going nwny, und
hud brought her out under the apple-trees to say good-bye to her
alone. She turned her hend nwny,
and he saw her lovely fnce grow
pale. He stood leaning against the
trunk 'of a tree und watched lur.
"Will you bo sorry when I am
gone?'! he asked, slowly.
It never occurred to her to answer anything  but the simple  truth.
"The old farm-house will never be
the same to, me again," sho answered,  faintly.
"Did my present brighten your lite,
Neva?" he asked huskily.
"It was like the sunshine breaking
over one's lifo after a dull, cold,
gray morning; but after you go the
sun will set for me."
Still leaning against the tree, he
asked, slowly:
"Do you care for me, Neva?"
She looked up at him with stnrtl-
ed eyes, then buried her face in her
little, trembling hands, and her dark
head nodded  in the affirmative.
"Do you care for mo enough to
marry me to-morrow?" he asked,
She raised her face from her hands
and looked at him in amazement.
"I—I—haven't thought of—of—
marrying     anybody,"     she    gasped.
"Will you think of it now?" he cut
in shortly. "It must bo now or never. 1 will give you just five minutes
to decide. If you say, 'No,' I will
leave the house within the hour, nnd
you will nover see me again. If you
say, 'Yes,' I will remain over until
to-morrow—Sunday—and we will be
"Father and mother might not
consent to—to—so sudden a marriage," stammered Neva, clasping her
hands nervously together.
"You must not ask them. Trust
to me blindly. They must not know.
They might refuse to give you to
me, a stranger. But once wedded,
they can not help but forgive us. I
would not counsel you to a step
that I believed wrong. From this
time on my life will be devoted to
you, if you consent. Is it yes, or
For answer the girl placed her little hand in his, looking up fearlessly into his face.
"What you want me to do must bo
right, and I—I—will do it," she. said
in a low voice. "I—I—will marry
you, if that will keep you here always, for my life would be so lonely
without you."
The girl spoke the words chokingly, out of the fullness of her heart,
and they were admission enough to
Glendenning to assure him that sho
loved him.    S
"May you never regret it, Neva,"
he answered, fervently. "My life in
the past has not been, what it should
havo been, but from this hour all
that shall be changed, so help mo
God! You will make a good man of
me, Neva!"

Impure  Candy,
Beware of Impure candy. Sugar In
candy quickly ferments after eating,
nnd if too much is eaten serious troubles often result. Furo sugar dissolves
quickly In water and leaves a clear

candy In a glass, aud over It pour boiling water. Let lt stand twenty-four
hours. If there ls any foreign substance !n the candy a sediment will be

Gives Advice to the Bank of England—
"Rainbow" Cheques.
In his home ln a quiet North London
suburb a clean-shaven, resolute young
man, with a clear-cut business head
and a precise and careful manner, sat
and discussed with a Dally Mall representative the past—and the future.
It was William Barmash, the man
who was concerned ln the most sensational forgery of Bank of England
notes of recent times. He has just
been released, after having served only
a third of the sentence of ten years'
penal servitude passed upon him ln
December, 1902. He was the. yuunfjest,
and certainly not the most blameworthy, of the forgers', and his liberty
has been given hlin, lo use his own
words, "So that I may mnke a fresh
start ln life, and devote my energies
to a more Jionest and less hazardous
Barmash was transferred from Park-
hurst to Pentonvllle prison after serving three years and three months, and
then released to rejoin his wife __id
children. For "general good conduct
a__d sendees rendered" Bannash's original sentence of ten years was reduced
to Ave, with a further reduction of
three months a year for excellent behavior.
To his credit It must be said, he has
done all In his power to make atonement, and his attempt to readjust the
balance of justice, although It has not
altogether commended Itself to former
associates, lias won him the highest
opinions of the police and prison authorities. This he firmly Intends to follow up by severing all the old criminal
Under a new name Barmashi has
made a fresh start, and none of hia
neighbors who see a well-groomed,
kindly-mannered man with his little
ones making much of him after hia
long absence connect him with the notorious ba_k forger.
It will be remembered that after the
trial his father, Solmon Barmash, paralyzed and a cripple, who had been
sentenced to fifteen years' Imprlson-
men, shot himself ln a _cell In Newgate. How he procured the revolver
after the careful search, and despite
the prison precautions, has remained
a mystery.
"In the library at Parkhurst prison,"
said the younger Barmash, "I have
read all kinds of fancitul theories that
have from time to time appeared ln
the newspapers as to how he secured
the means of death, but only two or
three living people know the real truth
at present.
"After the dreadful past," young
Barmash went on, "I Intend to commence a new life. I am eager for any
opportunity. In Parkhurst, where are
most of the prisoners who for -Tielr
misdeeds are best known to the public,
my fellow-prisoners placed me in the
front ranks of crime — an undeslred
honor, and one which I mean to live
down If possible. They would Insist
on placing me on the list of notorieties,
second only to the brothers Bldwejl,
whose forgeries were executed to rob
the Bank of England of a million of
money. Our scheme was on a much
humbler scale, and whereas the Bid-
wells had £5,000 capital our resourc.-
were limited. That makes a great difference."
Out of the wealth of his experience
Barmash gives a hint to tho "Old Lady
of Threadneedle Street," which coming
from an undoubtedly well-informed
source and being offered In retribution,
is worthy of every consideration.
"The old-fashioned way of printing
bank notes ln a dull, single color
should," he said, "be changed, and each
note printed ln many different colors.
This would prove too difficult to Imitate, and forgery would cease to pay
and thus stop.
"Even the much-vaunted, secretly
prepared water-mark paper on which
bank notes are printed can be copied
to deceive an expert, arid secret marks,
of which we hear so much, are now
known to the public a.nd the majority
of bank cashiers. Rainbow color printing is  the  only  real  remedy."
There is quite a tragedy — a grim
tragedy — In Barmash trying to cash
a genuine Bank of England *niTte.
"Memories of the forgeries still linger
In the public mind,, apparently, and
make them cautious1," he said, and related how, after reporting himself at
Scotland Yard Immediately after hl«
release, he and his wife were unable
to change the only money ihey had with
them—a five-pound note—a note abovl
all  possible suspicion.

The cows are groomed about a halt
hour before milking, and then, just
In advance of the milkers, a man goes
wlth a pail of warm water—warmed
wheu the seasou requires It—and a
sponge for cleansing the udders. One
man can cleanse tho udders for nine
or ten milkers If tbe cows ure conveniently situated. In my eurly work I
had each milker go ovbr bis row of
cows and cleanse thom before cleaning
himself up. But 1 soon discovered, as
the cows wero put from the otlier stables Into this certified milk stable, that
there was very soon a shrinkage in
the milk, and It worried me. I did not
kuow what to think. My first thought
was that tho cows hud been Injured by
tbe tuberculin test. Finally I evolved
this Idea—that manipulation of the udder In the cleansing stimulated the secretion of milk, and to get the best results you must follow that right up
and relieve the cow of her milk at
once or else thero Is a reaction that
makes trouble. That solved tho whole
Clean  Milking:.
Then we discarded tbe first few
streams of milk from ea*ch cow. It
has not much value anyway; there ls>
uot much fat In It. We milk through
an absorbent cotton strainer applied to
the top of the pall. This ls regular
Burgeon's cotton. It ls placed between
two layers of gauze and put over the
top of tbe pall and fastened there. The
pall is emptied through a covered
spout, so the pall ls not opeued; only
the spout is opened when the milk of
each cow is weighed. From the burn
this milk Is carried In cans to the mill.:
house, and there It Is put through a
centrifugal separator.
That   "Animal   Odor."
You cannot have milk that Is right
and do tbe milking iu a stuble that is
full of floating life. The milk that
comes from tbe udder of a healthy
cow, after tbe first few streams are
taken, which riuse out the milk channel, ls practically sterile. The germs
get Into the milk from tbe Impure aud
Insanitary surroundings. I have .seen
men who seemed to think that the
germs were a part of the milk. They
would talk about the animal odor aud
seemed to think that the milk had to
have it, when uie facts are that the
animal odor is filth, pure and simple.
If we will take carp of our cows aud
our milk wltb the neatness with which
the women prepare tbe balance of our
food, we shall have no trouble with animal odors.

Wolfe—Neglected Hero.
Mr. F. C. Wade, K. C, of Vancouver,
addressed the Winnipeg Canadian Club
on the duty of Canada to Wolfe's grave
recently, and pleaded for a national
acknowledgment of the achievements of
th_ hero of Quebec. Concluding his address Mr. Wade said: "In contemplating the grave of Wolfe at the old parish church of St. Alphage ln Greenwich
one cannot but recall his marvellous
bravery and brilliant generalship that
planned the attack at the Anse du Fou-
lon, which led to the capture of Quebec
and the cession of thla continent to tha
Anglo-Saxon race. Tho first Impulse Is ,
to look around for some great monument, some vast mausoleum, or, In default of that, some memorial window,
brass or mural tablet, some Indication
of the love and sympathy or at the
least some rign of gratitude on the part
of the Canadian people. But there Is
nothing. The dark, mysterious crypt
Is there, as is the Iron grating which
Is pointed to as Indicating the exact
position of the tomb. Theso aro cold
and forbidding enough, but that ls all.
Canada has done nothing; New England and Its lineal successors, the
United States, have done nothing. Had
lt not been for tho efforts of prlvata
and unknown persons, by whom a beautiful memorial window was placed in,
the church ln 1896, nearly a century and
a half after the fall of Quebec, there
would be nothing at St. Alphage to indicate that to Wolfe the Anglo-Saxon
race on this continent almost owes Its
existence. Do not the people of Canada owe lt to themselves, as well as to
the memory of the great Wolfe, to take
some action which will fittingly express
their appreciation of the heroism of tha
illustrious peer to whom this continent
owes so much?"
The Club, after hearing the address,
appointed a committee to set wheels in
motion towards concerted action by
all sister clubs ln erecting a suitable
Nanaen on Sallora.

Springs are rarely found In the southwestern part of the United States, and
for this reason they have been from
ancient times prized as a most valued
possession. The people who dwelt In
this region, says Walter Hough lu
"Records of the Fast," saw ln these
sources of life giving water tbe founts
of continuance aud well being, aud
near them they located their pueblos.
Save air, uo elements of nature are
nearer to human life than those combined into the primitive fluid which
must always be within reach of men
who put themselves into the grasp of
the desert Tbe primary knowledge of
the tribes who were the pioneers and
of every human being wbo has since
made his home ln the great American
desert was complete as to the location,
distribution and ldosyncrasles of the
water supply.
Spring water ls naturally more prized
by the inhabitants of those desert solitudes than that from living streams,
because tt ls always drinkable and always at hand, while the watercourses,
which for the greater part of the year
are sinuous reaohes of dry sand, furnish
at flood a quickly disappearing supply
of thinned mud which will not be touched by man or beast except ln the distress of thirst
Oue Is not surprised, therefore, that
a primitive people will regard these
springs as sacred. In fact, the Indians
of the southwest are not peculiar In the
worship of springs. The sentiment is
worldwide, has had a vast range of
time, perpetuates itself in the folklore
of the highest civilizations aud presents
in its manifestations a most Interesting
body of myth and faucy. But ln the
southwest the arid environment has so
Intensified this feature of primitive culture that no spring ln the region is
without evldeifce of many offerings to
the deities of water.
It ls small wonder then that the Pueblo Indians came to regard springs
with special veneration; that they wove
around tbem myth and tradition and
made them objects of religious, worship.
To one acquainted with the environment and Its radical needs this seems
to have been a natural, even though
unconscious, generalization. Perhaps
offerings to springs will not admit of
such simple explanation. Perhaps the
mystery of the underground source of
water welling up from unknown
depths, Impressive always even to the
observer who believes himself free from
the trammels of superstition, has also
had a powerful effect on the mind of
the Indian, leading, like many other
natural phenomena, to an attitude of
worship of unseen powers behind these

There Is a Common Idea that fowls
I can only be maintained in health where
there Is a large grass run, but this is
quite a mistake, says the American
Poultry Advocate. . A few hens con-
flued in a small yard If fed properly
and kept clean will lay more freely
than those that have an unlimited
range, and, usually being ln more sheltered quarters, they are more likely to
lay iu the winter than farm poultry. It
ls not an expensive business to wire
off a corner of the back garden and put
up a small house. A wooden house for
half a dozen fowls need cost but very
llttle, and wire for tbe run Is very
cheap. Tbe house must have ventilation provided at the top above the level
of the perch. An old box with a little
well broken straw In It will do for a
nest The floor of the house can be
made of earth beaten hard and level.
A sprinkling of dry ashes under the
perch will enable the droppings to be
removed with a trowel ln a few seconds. A portion of the wire run should
if possible be covered so as to afford
protection from the rain, and under
this should be placed a good sized box
of dry sand or sifted earth. Iu this the
fowls will clean themselves, a great
essential, conducing immensely to
their health.
The feeding of the hens Is a very
simple matter. There must be a warm
breakfast of meal given as soon after
the birds are off the perch as can be
managed. This meal should be composed of middlings and barley meal in
equal parts mixed into a stiff paste
with hot water. Any scraps of meat
etc., from the house can be added and
stirred In with lt At noon some cut
grass, cabbage leaves or otlier green
food must be given and before the
birds go to roost some grain, such as
wheat Poultry mixtures of various
grains are not good; neither is corn,
except a handful or two in tbe Way of
a treat It is most Important that the
fowls should only have as much at
each feeding as they will eat greedily;
none must be left over. In cold or very
wet weather a little pepper may be
idded to the meal. There must always
be plenty of fresh water for drinking.

Salt For Fowls.
It Is a prevalent notion that salt Is
poisonous to fowls, and this popular
Impression IS based on mnny unhappy
experiences with it when fed too liberally. Of course, salt ls poisonous lf
fed largely; but, on the other hand, it
Is beneficial wheu fed ln moderate
amounts—that Is, at the rate, say, of a
half ounce to 100 adult fowls per day.
It ls true that a great many fowls have
been killed by eating salt and by having their food mixed with the water
In which salt meat bad been boiled.
The careless throwing out of rock salt
which the birds eat under the impression that they are eating grit, ls the
most usual way of killing fowls with
salt—Western Poultry Journal.

Don't look to society as a mass to
remedy the wrongs that are rooted in
your own dooryard. Start iu yourself
and help weed.
Stand ready ever and always to give
yourself—not -hooey,' not food, not
cast-off Clothing, though thoso have
their values, too-_ut yourself to the
uttermost farthing.
Feel yourself alone in the world with
the man iu want.   You'll help him.
Feel yourself alone in tbe world with
tho woman in despair. You'll comfort
Feel yourself alone in the world with
the shivering, half-clad child. You'll
feed and warm and lovo it.
Let eaoh of us take up and shoulder
our Individual Responsibility.

Mt. Pleasant, Nov. 15th.
The City Counoil has docided to submit to the electors in January the question as to whether the electric tram
cars will or will uot bo allowed to build
around Stanley Park. Probably the
moss-backs and sentimentalists will
create sufficient agitation to defeat the
proposal, but if not at the forthcoming
election tllenfat some future timo the
question will be decided in the affirmative. The hot, dusty walk across tho
bridge to the park, tho long tramp to
tbe recreation grounds must be done
awav with somet—no. A corline around
the outskirts of the park would enable
anyone to get ofl and penetrate the
forest at any point desired, to say
nothing of the pleasures of u trolley
ride over snch a rout j. The grandncr
of the forest, the pleasant, quiet, shady
walks, in fact the plan of Nature's
charm and beauties would in no way be
marred by a carliue ns proposed for the
purpose of making the park and its
pleasures easy of access to all thn
people. *

What mother with growing girls has
not experienced tne trials and discouragements of that awkward age, the
period extending over eome fonr years
of the school girl's life, from the age of
twelve to sixteen, when the body seems
to lose all its graoe, and dressing with
any degree of smartness is next to impossible. Asa child the lanky maid
may have been round and plump and
graceful, pleasingly proportioned in
every part of her small body, but after
the passing of a dozen years, like the
proverbial weed, she seems to spring
rather than grow up, and the problem
is indeed a hard one to solve.
Dress skirts may be tnoked And finished with wide hems so that they may be
lengthened to keep pace with the growing and immature figure of the future
debutante. The broadening of the
figure is provided for in an extra width
of shoulder and underarm waist seams,
and the sleeves are patterned so that
they may be lengthened if necessary by
the attachment ot a new and deeper
cuff. All this artifice may be resorted
to in frooks as well as undergarments
with satisfactory results, but not so
with outer wraps.
For this reason the greatest care and'
the soundest judgment must be displayed when making a selection. The
dreBBCoat this year will douqtles* be
the school garment next, a fact which
Bhould be kept in mind when buying,
otherwise its uwfnines., a second seasou
may be impaired.
The styles of coats for girls and
misses this season are snch that while
the garment apparently fits the figure it
is amply lurge, confining the body at
no point. There are no tight fitting
ooats iu the new styles. All hang in
long, loose lines from shoulder to hem
affording a charming grace to the slen
derest girl. Iu truth, they come as a
blessing in disguise to the girl who is
possessed of a snpofluity of bones.
For school and general everyday wear
the wool tex nlster of Euglish tweed represents tho smartest as well as the
most scrvicable garment one can buy
Tho material does not show soil and
whatever its color scheme—white-and-
browp, grey-and-white, or any of the
numerous plaid oompinaionB—it is al
ways in harmony with any color frock.
One model of a soft brown-and-white
mixture affords a splendid suggestion
for the lengthening of sieves which the
praotical mother may apply in tne remodeling of last years coat. The fnll
coat sleeve is cut out to within an inch
of the wrist and beneath this is set u
two-inch straight cuff of the velvet,
open on the back seam of the sleeve aud
trimmed with rows of soutache braid.
For drcsHy wear, when little Miladi
fweB forth iu her "Sunday beet," a coat
ot some dark-hued material, with a
fetching hat to match, i.. modish Monotone effects are fashionable in children's
as well us grown-up's wardrobes. Ths
follows out the all-white vogue of the
summer which haa just passed. The
all-white custnme is still n la modi, but
ouly for the wee folks under six.
Browr.3, blues, greens aud redB are
the staple colore in the plain garments,
and melton, in a beautiful soft quality,
u favorite fabric. This is sot off by
trimmings of novel buttons, frequently
in a variety of sines, aiid and velvet in
collars and culls. Snch a corn and a
hat of the same color in one of tho many
novol aud becoming shapes of tuo season
makes for a modish and charming simplicity

Ever alone, alone.
I  heard  the bells of the heather
Ring  In   the  summer  breeze,
6oft stir of fur and feather
And quiet  hum of bees.
The piper drew me yearning
Into the dim grey lands,
Where  there  Is  no  returning,
Although I wring my hands.
There to  the piper's  crooning,
I saw my dead again, f*
iill  ln a happy nooning
Of golden sun and rain. 1 >
Tou piper, kind and hoary,
Your pipes  upon your knee, *
If I should tell  my story,
The things you piped for me,
The folk would leave their selling;
And bid their buying go,
If I could but be telling
The things you let me know.

Symbol   of   the   Tyranny   and   Itntli-
lessncsa  of Modern Business.
No single subject In architecture Is
more generally and anxiously discussed nowadays than the skyscraper. No
construction of iron and stone is regarded with so much doubt aud pessimism as a necessity, but an evil one.
It ls an Overgrown gliuit usurping
the dimensions of a cathedral, a royal
palace or a house of assembly—a structure Intended to stand alone and dominate the smaller and humbler things
about, but Instead of remaining solitary nnd dignified it shoulders, monsters next it like mean houses in a
row, turns stroets into canyons, back
yards into wells, cutting off light and
olr from all lower structures and from
other tall buildings. The sun refuses
to shine into its lower stories, aud even
the winds of heaven rebel against It.
It is the stark and concrete expression
of the tyranny and ruthlessness of
modern business.
Yet it ls here as a condition, not a
theory. It rises und multiplies In every city, and many wbo read these
words have their places of business iu
a skyscraper and spend a goodly portion of their waking hours within, so
convenient Is it, and such a saving of
wearisome stair climbing are Its elevators. Not one of tbe architects who
most deplore and despair of its artistic
problems but would Jump at tbe opportunity of building the highest that
could be made to stand and frown insolently down on the roofs below. Mot
oae but would, for the sake of tbe fat
commission and the glory, do bis best
to get out the complete working drawings as soon as he possibly could to
satisfy his client's haste and save him
from the loss of rent not received and
taxes paid out that would accrue with
every day's delay. Not one would lu-
elst upon months or years to think over
and digest the problem that such an
-outlay as goes Into one of these steel
structures calls for in these days _ot

The Walls ot Cadis.
The historic walls of Cadiz are being
pulled down. It has long been the
dream of the people of Cadiz to demolish these picturesque but useless walls
to make room for factories and modern
buildings. This dream is not without
interest to the foreign traveler, sinoe it
Includes the laying out of gardens aud

in lengthening existing piers and reclaiming land from the seo, thus enabling vessels to load and discharge
cargo alongside of wharves luf'ead of

advantage of this to the desired revival
of trade ln Cadiz canuot be overestimated.

Flogging, ln public and otherwise, Is
not of mediaeval origin. In the middle
ages ridicule and not physical suffering
was the means employed for the correction of wrongdoing; hence the pillory, the stocks and the thewe—a chair
. suspended high over the heads of the
crowd, iu which women, generally
scolds, wero brought to a sweet rea-
Bonableness—but the wliipping post belongs to' the Tudor age. Tbe Elizabethan servant question was met by
flogging girls for Idleness on Sunday

to excess. As lute as 1801 six women

His Majesty Again to Take Up Yacht
For ten years past, remarks The London Standard, It has been the practice
of those directly interested ln the highest developments of yacht racing ln
British waters to refer to the seasons
In which the famous old Britannia led
the racing fleet round the coasts as typifying the high-water mark of tho
sport In Britain. There Is little doubt
that the magnitlcent sport enjoyed during these seasons owed much to the direct Interest and participation of the
then Prince of Wales, and there have
been those who held stubbornly to tha
opinion that the same keen Interest
and enthusiasm would never be reached
again unless the King returned to his
first love among the sports, and enrolled himself again among the racing
o timers.
Whether the revival Initiated so successfully this season by Mr. R. M.
Young of the Nyria and Mr. Myles B.
Kennedy of the White Heather, would
have developed far enough In another
season to have falsified this opinion
remains an open, question. In the
meantime, the universal feeling In
yacht racing circles is one of absolute
satisfaction that the matter has been
put beyond doubt by the decision of
His Majesty to hoist racing colors
again to the truck of a first-class cutter.
This decision;—or, rather, the negotiations which preceded tt—gave ' rise
to a variety of rumors, mainly conflicting, and wholly premature, and
the result is that those who have followed the matter with the closest Interest are most mystified as to tlie
exact position in which the matter
"how'Stands. It may now be stated that,
although. the negotiations have nest
reached the point at which the proposal to build becomes an actual contract, they have advanced so far as
to put it beyond all reasonable doubt
that there will be a new royal cutter
In the class which will lead the racing
fleet through the regattas of next year.
In the lifetime of the late Mr. Geo. L.
Watson, the most eminent of British
yacht designers, he was the authority
to whom the King turned for expert
advice on all matters pertaining to
yachting, and the cutter Britannia,
which' he designed for the King when
Prince of Wales, was easily the most
consistently successful racer ever built
in the first class, On the death of Mr.
Watson, the business passed—under the
provisions of his will—to Mr. J. T. Barnett, his chief draughtsman and assistant. It ls with the same firm, therefore, Messrs. Geo. L. Watson & Co.,
that His Majesty has been In negotiation for the building of the new racer,
and whether the new craft repeats all
the success of her predecessor or not,
there are circumstances which will
mark her an epoch-making vessel.
The keenest desire of the framers of
the hew international rule of rating
was that the change might do something for the encouragement of International sport among the yachting
countries of Europe, and the fact that
the flrst important racer to be buUt
under that rule will be for the use of
King Edward gives the best reason
for believing that this hope will be fulfilled. In the sketch plans which have
been made the definitions of the framers of the new rule find definite expression.
Britannia II., unless some great and
unexpected alteration ls made In the
plans, will conform to the latest fashion
in the building of racers by avoiding
altogether the extremes which began to
creep in when designers were a little
hard pressed to find a mean3 of checking the victorious career of tho previous Britannia. On the measurements
suggested she will rate So closely to the
rating of the first-class cutters, Nyria
and White Heather, that the measurement allowances due between them will
be of a very trifling description.
This goes with the spirit of the new
rules; but even more valuable support
to their provisions ls the fact that the
new vessel will be of exactly the
staunch and useful type which it is
specially desired to cultivate. Thero
will be nothing of the "freak," or of
the extreme racing machine in the design.
London's Infant Slaughter.
John Burns, the English Labor member and Cabinet Minister, the sixteenth
member of a family of eighteen children, nine of whom survived, said to
tho national . conference on Infantile
mortality In London: • ,
"I believe I am well w._thln the marl-
when I say that there are roughly 100,-
000 Uvea sacrificed in some form or another every year, not to man's inhumanity, but to neglect, carelessness,
thoughtlessness and ignorance. It ls
pathetic to know that In some districts
from 30 to 60. per-cent, of the total children born die under five years. Wealth
has Increased, but tile Infant has not
shared It. Physical comforts have Increased, and yet the weakest and the
smallest bear an undue share of the
burden of death. It seems as though
material progress ls hitting ths child
too hard."

The Vnder Side of Fish.
Experiments have been made with
flounders In order to determine whether
the whiteness of the under sides of
those fish Is due to the exclusion of
light, and the presence of color on their
upper skies to exposure to light. The
fish experimented upon were kept living in a glass tank, having a mirror
placed beneath, so as to reflect light
upon the under skies of the flsTi. One
of theso prisoners survived for three
years under conditions so strangely different from its ordinary habits of life,
and all of thom exhibited the development of spots of pigment on tbelr lower
surfaces. The experimenters concluded that It is exposure to light that
causes the coloration of the upper
parts of the bodies, not only of flounders, but of other fish, and, conversely,
that lt Is to the comparative absence
of light that the whiteness of under
sides of fish Is due. They extend tho
same principle to explain the colorless
condition of the skins of many animals
that pass all their lives in caves.
Bird  Songs.
Naturalists bave loug been puzzled
as to how birds learn to slug. .Does it
come natural to a bird of a certain
r.pecles to slug the song common to Its
kind or does It learn to Imitate whatever song It most hears during the
early days of Its life? Experiments
made by a well known student of bird
life proved that most birds simply learn
by imitation. He placed young linnets
to be reared by skylarks, woodlarks,
titlarks and other breeds, nnd in every
case the linnet learned the song of his
foster parents. Again, a number of linnets wero reared whero they had no
chance of hearing the song of any
bird nt all. In duo course they begun
to sing, but their song was entirely
original. Tho cuckoo, however, seems
to be an exception, for although It is
almost Invariably reared b.v foster
parents of any species but its own,
it nlways slugs to perfection its own
peculiar song, quite uninfluenced by
the vocal efforts'of its guardians.
Origin  of the  Strike  I'nnil.
Tlie earliest mention of a strike fund
occurred in the strike of tlio Parisian
stocking weavers in 1724, when a
crown a day was subscribed for every
striker and all blacklegs wero mercilessly boycotted. But the biggest strike
under the "ancient regime" was that
of the silk factory hands at Lyons
In 1714, when 12,000 men went on
strike aud so alarmed the mayor that
he conceded everything they asked nnd
wrote to his brother that he had "la
tete cassee par cette vile canaille."
The "vile canaille," however, had bad
their moment, and lt was no longer
theirs. Two months later the king
sent' down 20,000 soldiers "pour re-
mettre I'ordre dans la bouneville de
Lyon," and wc hear no more of strikes
till the supreme strike of 1780.
A Snail's Sense of Smell.
Professor E. Yung of Geneva discovered that the keen sense of smell attributed to the ordinary snail ia distributed

lips and the edges of tlie feet being
particularly sensitive. In the experiments mado a brush dipped In various
odorous substances in turn was brought
near the different parts of tlio body, and
responses were noted at distances of
one twenty-fifth of an inch to several
Inches. Only in exceptional cases was
odor perceived as much as fifteen or

If he went there seeing that the place

it was dangerous, neither could my

George Mam's Versatility.
Wherever George Ham, the veteran
newspaper man, and representative of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, goes
there Is sure to be a trail of stories.
Here are a couple of them, the first
told by The Nelson Herald:
"When George Ham, the well-known
C. P. R. official, -was ln Nelson last
week; a deputation waited upon him
and urged In eloquen' language that the
C. P. R. should build an hotel in that
city to accommodate the tourist trade.
George listened patiently to the harangue and at Its close remarked: "Well,
boys, I don't think the; C. P. R. can afford to put up an hotel here, but,' and
he put his hand ln his pocket and pulled out an imitation $100,000 bill given
to hiin' as an ad for Saskatoon and
handed it to the leader of the deputation, 'I am glad to contribute personally this amount towards the scheme.'
Nothing iaore was said about tho hotel."
The Vancouver Province chronicled
the other yarn:
"President Roosevelt, according to
the statement of Mr. George Ham, will
make a tour of Canada as soon as his
present term has expired, and will visit
Vancouver. No doubt amid the pressure of his other duties he has had time
to read our literature and inform himself of the advantages of this city as a
place for settlement."

Stringent Bill to Operate In England to
Stop Juvenile Smoking.
In their report Issued recently the
Committee on Juvenile Smoking strongly urged the British Government to Introduce a bill next session (partly on
the lines of Sir Ralph Littler's measure, which they prefer to Lord Reay's)
as follows:
1. Every person knowingly selling d-
gnrettes, cigarette pnpers, cigars, or tobacco to any child under sixteen lo b»
liable for the first offence to a fine not
exceeding £2, and for subsequent offences not exceeding £5.
2. Every child, under sixteen found
smoking or ln possession of cigarettes, etc., to be liable to a penalty not
exceeding  £2 for each offence.
3. Constables to *De allowed to stop
youths apparently under sixteen seen
smoking In a public place and to confiscate tobacco found on them.
4. Local authorities to be, allowed to
extend some of these powers to park-
keepers, schoolmasters, and others, and
possibly to railway and dock companies.
5. Provisions to be made to exempt
children procuring tobacco for their
parents or carrying messages for their
N6 recommendation ls made ln regard
to automatic machines. Teachers aro
expected to dwell occasionally on the
bad effects of the habit.
The committee are satisfied that Juvenile smoking has rapidly Increased,
that lt facilitates disease and leads to
drinking, and are Impressed by the absence of signs of physical doterloratlon
among girls who are as a rule free troin
the habit.

Contrast With Youthful Fancy of Bald
Facts and the Real Actual Scenes of
the Wonderful Land Watered by ths
Nile — The Egyptian Season — Old
Alexandria Gone—In Cairo, the Khedive's Capital.
How far away the banks of the Nile
■eemed to us as school children! When
the teacher recounted the Interesting
etory of the Infant Moses; his having
been cast upon the waters; his rescue
by Pharaoh's daughter, it all seemed a
delightful fairy tale concerning a far,
nebulous land and few exr.ected to
stand upon the actual spot where tradition says the great Deliverer was rescued. Nor did many of us then contemplate that we would ever behold the
mysterious pyramids or look mio the silent tombs of those mighty Kings who
ruled Egypt when the Holy Family lied
there for safety and shelter. These
scenes so absorbing to our youthful
(ancles, connected as they were so Intimately with our religious teaching,
■eemed so remote and Inaccessible that
fen. ventured to obtain even more than
m general idea of the story, without
thought of ever visiting the actual
scenes of this wonderful drama.
In those days the world seemed very
large and Egypt a distant land. There
was no cable then, no ocean greyhound,
no seventy-mlle-an-hour train, writes
Charles T. Long In The Toronto, Globe.
Jules Verne was thought :a' dreamer
and Juvenile romancer, when he predicted a trip round the world in eighty
days, which may now be undertaken
with comfort in sixty. : To-day, thanks
to electricity and enterprise, there are
no remote corners of the earth. An Incident of Importance happening at
Cairo, Toklo or London Is chronicled at
Toronto with the same facility as at
New York, Winnipeg or Vancouver. The
Nile, down which the Infant Moses glided, and which for long ages refused to
divulge Its mysteries, Is to-day an open
book to the thousands of Europeans,
Americans and Canadians who have
learned to regard as facts many of the
Biblical accounts long considered legendary.

Modern Alexandria, with two hundred

Africa and rivals Constantinople as a

Its shops filled with European merchandise, Its Board of Trade occupied by

Alexandria presents no evidences of
her ancient glory. Nothing ls to be seen
of her renowned library, nor tho forts

rrlors whose exploits furnished the
world with so muoh poetry and prose.
There are some splendid public modern
works, large hotels, beautiful gardens,
handsome palaces, great docks, well
equipped railway terminals, up-to-date
waterworks, etc., but outside the house
where Napoleon made his headquarters
there ls nothing of particular historic
•Interest The merchants are chiefly
Greeks, who also possess a large pro
portion of the tobacco trade of the
country. Egypt ls celebrated the world
over for tho excellence of her cigarettes,
and yet there ls not an ounce of tobacco grown ln Egypt; but that ls another story, and will be dealt with under the head of "British Rule" ln a future letter.
Cairo, the capital, Is one hundred and
twenty miles southeast of Alexandria,
The Intervening oountry forms the delta of the Nile, and Is rich ln agricultural products. Midway between the
cities Is the village of Rosetta, where
the French discovered the stone, now to
be seen In the British Museum, London, upon which ls Inscribed ln Greek
and Egyptian a decree which furnished
the key to ihe hieroglyphics to foe found
on the thousands of monuments and
ananuscrlpts throughout the country.
Since this discovery Egyptologists have
been able to master the ancient language, and are dally translating the
messages of the sages of old to those
who are Interested thr^e thousand
years after their time.

Institutions. In the European quarters
one might Imagine oneself ln London
or Paris were It not for the thousands
of Orientals, costumed ln the flowing
and beautifully-colored robes of the
far east, who Jostle the foreigners as
they hurry from place to place, or take
possession of the seats on the pavement surrounding the numerous cafes.
Leaving this familiar scene, lt ls only
necessary to cross the Central Square
to plunge Immediately Into the native
district, where Europe ls left a thousand years behind, and where the whole
aspect of things changes as though by
magic. Here the streets afe narrow.
The houses are very high, the top stories "built out sp as to meet and. form
an arch, through which the sun and
heat may not penetrate. The crowds
swarm like bees about a hive. The
workmen operate the same style of
tools as those found in the tombs of
the ancients at Luxor. Here may be
seen artisans producing swords, brass,
silver and gold work, mosaics, beaded
and silk ware, Jewellery, rugs and a
hundred other precious and curious
inings, rep—lauctions ox. me wonuera

If one could reconcile the nostrils to
the situation, the eye would delight ln
the profuse diversity of form and color
while laden camels, donkeys and oxen
wend their way through the tortuous
labyrinths followed by howling drivers
who seem always on the move, except
when the Mussulman calls to prayer
from the ubiquitous minaret. Then
every face turns to Mecca, every head
bows in worship, and ever heart pours
out Its longings regardless of the Inquisitive stare or scoffing remark of the
passing foreigner. During this period a
solemn hush falls upon these busy
marts, to give place ten minutes later
to renewed and more vigorous efforts
*.o drown rival voices. The merchants
ln th6 native shops, which are from
eight to fifteen feet square, are surrounded by workmen engaged ln manufacturing the article exposed for sale.
Each merchant confines his business to
a particular article or articles of a particular line, such as Jewellery, glassware, shoes, silks, etc., and strives to
arrive as near perfection ln workmanship as possible ln his own specialty.
The result ls of course, a much greater variety of design, the development
of more individuality and skill than ls
to be found under the English or American "trust" system.
The middle and laboring class Egyptian appears to be a kind, courteous,

After I had been ln the country several months and had become acquainted with some of the native gentry, I
was surprised to learn that while one
and all admitted the many benefits of
British rule, there was a strong undercurrent agaln3t the English, the reasons for whicll I shall reserve for a future letter.
While Egypt affords exceptional advantages as to health, comfort, sport
and education it ls not a country for a
person of moderate means. It ls a
country where European necessities ara
very expensive, while the natives are
able to live comfortably on half what
lt would cost ln America. The magnificent hotels are only open five months
ln the year, and must therefore charge
high prices to enable them to pay dividends on the great capital Invested. The
cost of railway travel ls about the same
as ln France, or about twice as expen •
slve as ln Canada, though the service,
meals, sleepers, etc., are much more
comfortable than In either of those
countries. Cairo Is perhaps as expensive
a city to visit as Monte Carlo yet the
"fashion, beady and wealth of Europe,
Asia and America congregate here, and
certainly every luxury, comfort and
amusement ls provided by those clever
people whose business It Is to separate
the wealthy foreigner from his money.
In Egypt one never hears the remark, "It ls a fine day," for tho reason
that every day ls fine and no one need
take the subject Into calculation when
arranging a trip to one or other of the
many beautiful environs. The Great
Pyramid Is but nine miles distant,
reached after traversing a splendid
boulevard the entire distance, with the
green banks on the Nile on the east
and fields filled with flowers on the opposite side. Arriving at the Pyramids,
Is found a grand hotel, where the smart
set meet dally and at afternoon tea arrange programs for the various enter-.
talnments when they will meet later In
the evening.
Dress of • Dandy of the Early Nineteenth  Century.
A cure for the confirmed roller
against modern dress might be a course
of inspection through a file of old
fashion magazines or the perusal of
such accounts as are given by the
author of "Sketches of Lynn." The
description is that of a suit worn in
the flrst part of the nineteenth century.
The boots were an important article
of dress. The toes were made as broad
as the ball of the foot, with the corners well rounded, giving the shoe the
resemblance to the snout of a shovel
nosed shark. They were very snug and
required strong straps. In order to get
into a fashionable pair the heel of the
stocking was well soaped and some
pulverized soap sprinkled Into the boot.
The length of time it took to get one
on depended on the strength of the
owner and the strap.
The stylish overcoat displayed five
capes, one above the other. The trousers were expected lo fit as tight as the
skin. Just how they were put on is a
mystery. The coat was especially snug
under the sleeves, and the velvet collar
scraped up the back of the head. The
camlet overcoats after a little wear,
became as stiff as birch bark.
The thing worn about the neck was
called a stock. This name was appropriate In its suggestion of an instrument of punishment. The stock was
from three to six inches high, and was
made stiff. A man was forced to look
straight ahead. Only by careful management could he see a little on either
side. About halfway between his eyes
and ears two little points of collar
stuck up like toothpicks.
Ruffled bosoms and wristbands finished the costume, with the addition of
a tall silk hat When inclosed lu this
manner, witb a dash of attar of roses
on his handkerchief, the man of the
period was considered Irresistible.
Position of Prince Albert, Royal
Consort of U—en Victoria.
A woman looked up with a laugh
from a heavy volume she was reading.
"Now I know," she said, "why Queen
Victoria was so fond of the prince consort. This husband did uot merely regard his wife as his equal; he regarded
her as Immeasurably his superior, saying tbat lt was his duty to sink his
own Individual existence In her. Listen to this letter that Prince Albert
wrote to the Duke of Wellington. Here
is a champion of woman's rights Indeed. Don't you think, though, it Is
going too far for a man to bumble
himself so low as this?'
She then read from her book In a
sarcastic voice:
My Dear Duke—In the question whether
lt is advisable that I should take the
command of the army I have come to the
conclusion that my decision ought entirely to be guided by tho consideration
whether lt would Interfere with or assist
my position of consort to the sovereign.
This position Is a most peculiar and delicate one. While a female sovereign has
a great many disadvantages ln comparison with a king, yet if she Is married and
her husband understands and does his
duty her position, on the other hand, has
many compensatory advantages and in
the long run will bo found to be stronger
even than that of the male sovereign.
But this requires that the husband should
entirely sink his own Individual existence
In that of his Wife and that he should aim
at no power by himself or for himself,
being content to be the husband of the
queen, the private secretary of the sov-
eieign and the tutor ot tho royal children.
Rending  on  n  Trnln.
If you travel back and forth into
town every day you no doubt reud
your paper or a magazine on the train.
While this is not, indeed, the best practice for the eyes, it seems a pity to
waste so much time which might be
turned to good nccount. Much of tho
annoyance which comes from truln
reading ls due to the Jolting of tho
cars, which continually knocks the
printed line out of focus with tho eye.
This can be hi some degree obviated
by laying a card or some other object
below the line to be read and moving
it steadily downward while reading.
This acts as a guide to tbe eye and
helps to keep the sight fixed. Those
who have tried lt say that it wonderfully assists to decrease the difficulty
of reading while in motion.
Net  a   Single   Professed   Anarchist   In
the Good City—The Queen
City Leader.
Toronto cannot boast of having the
same number of Socialist workers as
Montreal, says The Montreal Standard.
In the latter city they are both numerous and aggressive. In the former
they are less conspicuous and more
conservative in carrying on their propaganda, for let lt not be forgotten that
Toronto has not yet had a May Da/
Eut lf the Queen City cannot boast
of having a Socialist movement as
strong and as active as that of Montreal, lt can lay claim to possessing a
great number of Intelligent Socialists,
who do not rave and tear their hair In
the revolutionary fashion, but seek to
make converts through the means of
argument and Illustration rather than
the wholesale condemnation of every-
. thing capitalistic.
] Members of Trade Unions.
I The majority of Toronto English-
speaking Socialists are nearly all members of their respective trade unions.
Their advocacy of their doctrines Is
not confined to converting Individual
trade unionists to their way of political reasoning, but they also have mass
meetings and seek to teach the toiler
I the "facts" of their cult. What distinguishes Socialist propaganda ln Toronto from that of Montreal Is that
. while the followers of the red flag ln
Montreal are nearly all foreigners more
than 50 per cent, of Toronto Socialists
are all British subjects, including the
recognized leader of the movement.
There are at present three groups,
the nationality of them being English,
Finnish and Jewish, with an Italian
local In the course of formation. All
told, they number some four hundred.
I      Movement Started Five Years Ago.
The movement is not very old, having been started some Ave years ago
by a number of Canadians, and was at
the highest point of Its progress when
lt could boast of having a newspaper
to set forth Its views. Since that timo
lt has not made great progress, but
| Its followers never lose an opportunity
of making capital out of and exposing
tho tactics of their opponents.
The Socialists in Toronto and Ontario are, however, ahead of their Quebec brethren in one respect, and that
ls ln the person of their leader, Mr.
James -Impson.
Believe In Their Leader.
Tho rank and file of organized labDr
in Toronto are thoroughly convinced
that though the movement of which Mr.
Simpson Is the local chief may not bo
the right one to Improve the condition
of the masses, there is no questioning
his sincerity and high regard for principle. That they believe ln his sincerity ls evidence- by the fact that he
has been, for the first time In the history of Ontario, if not In Canada, elected a school trustee on the Socialist
ticket, receiving over 6(000 votes. In
addition ha Is vice-president of the
Dominion Trades Congress, as well as
president of the Toronto Typographical Union, which recently elected him
delegate to the Victoria Convention of
that body, which, lf tha views of his
supporters meet with the approval of
the majority of the delegates, will eloot
blm president.
Introduced Socialist Resolution.
It was he that introduced the memorable Socialist resolution which created such an uproar at tha Montreal
convention of the Trades Congress.
Unfortunately, however, for the progress of the movement in Toronto, Its
Intellectual standard-bearer has not
been able to influence a large numbor
off his fellow wage-workers to think as
himself. There being fewer aliens In
the chief city of Ontario than are to
be found In Montreal is responsible for
Its alow growth.
Tha great mass of tollers there do
not seemingly care to Introduce the
change of properly ownership that Socialists advocate. Thoy prefer to work
along conservative trade union lines for
any Improvement In their natural welfare. With that stubbornness that characterizes tha Englishman above all ot'.»-
er, they fear change, and thus lt comes
about that though Toronto may Justly
claim to be a progressive city, from ths
standpoint of those who wish to substitute the co-operative commonwealth
for the present competitive system of
production and sale, Montreal has tho
distinction of having the largest number of Socialists to be found In any one
city ln Canada. Strange to relate our
special Investigator, In splto of tho
most diligent enquiry, was not able to
locate on Anarchist, either professed
or silent, ln Its environs.
A Relio of th« Civil War.
A cannon ball, which had lain burled
since 1634, was recently recovered from
a field on the farm of Mr. Hampson, of
Acton, Nantwlch, Cheshire. The town
of Nantwlch played a considerable pari
In the war as the headquarters In
Cheshlro of Generals Fairfax and Brere-
ton. Much fighting took place at Ao
ton, where, during a portion of the
siege of Nantwlch, the Royalist forces
were located. On some of the masonry
of Aoton and Nantwlch churches there
are still visible the marks caused by
cannon shot
Trade EmblemII on Tombstones.
In Scotland lt was for a long time
usual to place on a man's tombstone
the symbols of bis trade. Especially
was thiB the case at Dunblane, where,
ln the burial ground of tbe abbey, It
bas been fouud that of those tombstones which are from 100 to 200 years
old about one-fourth are thus marked,
the symbols being In low relief. A
sugar cane may be seen as showing
the grave of a grocer; an ax and bow,
with hammer and nails, occur ou the
grave of a carpenter; au awl and a
hammer on that of a shoemaker. There
are many other graves similarly
marked.—London Answers.

Skeleton and Old Books—Now Brunee
wick Mon  Discover Traces of
Dwelling Used 200 Years Ago.
A remarkable discovery was made on
a recent Sunday afternoon, by Charles
E. Stewart and his uncle, J. E. Stewart, near Johnsvllle, N. B., about eis*t
miles back of the village of Bath, where
the bones of a human being were
found In a 'blockaded cave. The Stewarts, who have long been desirous of
Investigating, went to the cave, and
with dynamite the obstruction to tha
cave was demolished. The men found
twelve stone steps leading to a passage seven feet long and two feet wide,
this opening Into a main room about
twelve feet square, where they found
the bones of a human being lying on a
bunk of stone.
No trace of flesh was there and tho
bones were dry and crumbly. Near tho
bones was a gold ring on which was
Inscribed "John Long, Dec. 1779." A
few Inches away was a sl'ver watch,
which boro the date 1740. Underneath the bones were found several
traces of coarse hair, which w->uld indicate that the body had la.lt- on a
skin or something of that nature.
Underneath the bunk were found three
books, two in Latin, the third writun
in English.
One of the Latin books was Suetonius' History of Rome, dated 1667, and
on the fly leaf were several Latin inscriptions. Inside was written: "B. A.
St.-ong, Oxford College, May 24, 1676."
Underneath this appeared the name
James Hayward, 1685. The other book
was Seneca's Tragedies, and it waa
marked the date 1659.
In the English book was written tho
names of David Fowles and Michael
Carney. Around the books, which wera
In a good state of preservation, was a
large piece of bark on which wera
marks believed to be plans of other
caves. At one end of the room and Immediately underneath the little hole In
the roof was an old fireplace. What
this signifies the people here do not
know, but tha investigation will b»
Though several persons by the name
of Strong have figured on the rolls of
Oxford University, none of them boro
the Initials "B. A." Moreover, there
was no one by the name of Strong at
the university in 1676, or within 2*
years of that date, according to Alumni
Oxonenses, edited by Foster. It might
also be pointed out that Oxford "collage" proves an alibi, though the term
might be used.
Praise For 'Tom" Talt.
If you ever meet a visitor from Australia and want him to say a good
thing for Canada and Canadians ask
him what ha thinks of Mr. Thomas
Talt the manager of the Government
railways ln the State of Victoria. Ha
ls sure to become enthusiastic at once,
unless he ls a Laborlte, and even then
he will admit that Mr. G. R. R. Cock-
burn's son-in-law Is a first-class administrator.
Mr. George Harris Hays, of Melbourne,    who   passed  through   Canada
en   route   to   England,   was   most  em
phatic ln his good opinion of Mr. Talt
when he said: "Our railways are ln the
very best  possible  condition.   We get .
fine service, we haven't had a block ln
two years, and, furthermore, the roads
are paying, and all that ls due to tho
man   you  sent  out  from   here  to  run
them, Thomas Talt.      He has dona a
great work there, a work which no oth-
| er man has ever been able to do.    He-
| tackled   ln   those  railways  one  of  the-
! toughest  Jobs  a  man   ever    ran   into,
. Railways in our country, you know, are
j owned and worked by 'he Government.
So when Tait camo along deputations.
came  to him  from  all over the coun-
i try to ask him for reduced  rates and.
all kinds of favors, and the politicians
j got after him and every one was trying
I to work him for all he was worth. Why,
I tried to do it myself.
i      "I went to see him with a great big
deputation,   and  we   told   him   ho  was
oppressing the poor people and small
I farmers.    All he answered was, 'I am
j going to make  the Victorian railways
pay.'    And he did make them pay, and
| iurthermore, he  is  the only man  who
has  ever   been  able  to  do   lt.    Befora
j he came along these railways showed
an annual dcllc.lt of £200,000.
I "Just think of that, and now they
pay, and on account of this great
gain the Government budget shows an
Increase Instead of a deficit for tho
flrst time ln the history of the country. Talt ls a great railroad manager, and he is now getting the credit
for lt In Australia from the very
people who, when he first came, tried
to bowl him down."

Dr. R. A. Reeve, dean of the medical
faculty of Toronto University, who was
recently Installed as president of tho
British Medical Association, ln spite of
his pre-eminence ln the medical profession Is a man of singularly quiet and

ls Indeed one of his greatest characteristics, and ha was almost nervous when
addressing the Medical Association. Dr.
Reevo ls a graduate of Queen's University, and became a fellow of the Royal
College of Physicians and Surgeons ln
Kingston ln 1866. In tha following year
ha became assistant surgeon of the Toronto Eye and Ear Inflrmfry, a position ho vacated ln 187*. Becoming a
specialist In these tnvo branches, he has
