At tbr meeting of tlio Canadian Pacific
Railway Company in Montreal to-day
President Van Home submitted bi'! annual report. The report is very complete and interesting. After referring in
tlie attitude ol the Canadian Pacific lo-
wards the Urand Trunk concerning Ibe
batting of rales, the address continues:—
Montreal, May 8.—The partisans of
the Grand Trunk following Sir Henry's lend, made an organized ;il-
link of tbe most unscrupulous character upon the credit uf tin- Canadian
Pacific, which, however, failed in its'ob-
ject. The company having, ns yon know,
secured the capital required on much
more favorable terms than ever before in
its history, The flood of false ami-damaging statements which were put before
the public in one form or another, day
idler day, frightened no doubt n t'ood
many holders of our sliiuvs niul bonds
Into selling out at a price fur below ibe
value of their securities. This, I am
sure, you regret as much ns I do. I inn
happy to believe tbat tbe rules of the
current year will so completely establish tbe ability of yonr company
to pay a dividend on its ordinary shares
out of tlio net profits of ilm Working that
Sir Henry Tyler will have no need in future to concern Himself about the welfare
of ils shareholders. We have seen
nothing in the Grand Trunk methods
Hint would justify ns in asking Sir
Henry's advice us to bow we should
Bhapeour legislation or finances when
Ibe results prove that bis methods are
right nml ours an1 wrong, We may ask
his advice, bul until then, I for one will
not thank bim for it. I havo always been
most anxious to see the two companies
acting together in harmony nnd good will,
for in this way only can the property Borvc the interests of their
shareholders I know Ibis bus been
tin1 feeling of every one of your directors,
nml 1 believe Hint no opportunity bus
been neglected to give eviuenco of il, but
we nro not likely to hi1 frankly anil fairly
met by Grand Trunk offlcirds on this side
of Hie' Atlantic so long ns their President continues to exhibit such n feeling
of animosity ns is evinced by bis half-
yearly speech lo bis shareholders, nor
until bo is willing to accept Hit' situation
und recognize in the Canadian Pacific an
independent but well disposed neighbor
—aneighbor who hascotnotostav and is
abundantly able to bold bis own. On
one point 1 am happy I" be
able to agree with Sir Henry und
Ibnl is to the government subsidy to
competing lines in districts already provided with railway facilities. The onlv
grounds upon which railway subsidies
can bo justified according to my views
nre theontire absence of railway facilities
nnd Ibe impossibility of providing tbem
by private nnd uuaided enterprise, und I
will promise Sir Henry mv hearty cooperation in nny effort lo induce the
Dominion mid Provincial Governments
to put ii stop to the susidizlngof competing lines, most of which if built will only
briiisr disaster to those who may be induced to invest in Ibein. I
earnestly concur with the hopo of
the president Hint it will not again
be necessary ut the annual meetings of
the shareholders of the company lo sny
anything abont our neighbors or to go
outside of the body of our formal report.
(Constituting the "short lino" to Ibo
maritime province), which, nl the vote of
the hist annual report was under construction, is practically completed nnd
ready for traffic. Its cost, owing in unexpected difficulties hi the construction
mid to an extremely unfavorable season
wns much larger than was anticipated
nnd the proceeds of the bonds issued for
its construction, proved inadequate. This
work wns carried on by the Atlantic nnd
Northwestern Railway Company for ibe
account of tho Canadian Paei lie and tlie
deflcii bad therefore lo be providqd for
from Ibe general funds of your company,
An agreement bus beon readied with the
government as subject to the ratification
ot parliament, respecting thai section of
the Atlantic nml Northwestern Railway
from Harvey to Moncton, New limns-
wick, about 110 miles, whereby the government agreed to coiiHtfnct the line,
and llio company to work il for lid yenrs
without rental, and In pay thereafter n
rental of $78,400 per annum, This agreement coupled with u trnilh- agreement
covering business lo niul irom iho Intercolonial Railway, which will mnke il of
value lo your company, nnd had been
executed by the government nnd on l>e
half of the company under iho authority
of the director, but it hns not been ratified by parliament nor hns the necessary
appropriation been made for the expenditure on  construction.    The mutter  is,
therefore, in abeyance nt present, but
your appropriation ol the action ol (he
board will be usked lor. The western
entrance io Montreal, nnd the central
passenger station in Hint eity ure practically completed) nnd have - been
in partial use lor (he pnst
two months, nml the eastern entrance
to Toronto and the line along the lake
frontof that city are well advanced and
itre expected to be ready for uso hefore
the end of the coming summer. The
company haa been harshly treated nt
Montreal in the nmtterof land dapiages,
imd the eosl of its work in tbnt city has,
in consequence, exoeedud the original
estimates nt Toronto. However, it is
nx-panted thai ibeurigiiinl estimates will
f„li v rover Ihe cost of the work. The
extension of the Ontario and Quebec
railwn'y (under perpetual lease to this
e'ompn.'iy) Irom London lo (be Detroit
River is• advancing rapidly, nnd the line
will be v.'SkIv for Irnilie before another
winter. This Una will connect
al Detroit ">"' a number of important rail *avs extending to Chieago
St. Louis, iVV     '
and  will til blice enable
the Eastern linos of tlie company I"
command u large and profitable traffic
from which they hnvo hitherto been debarred. An nttompl wns made to secure
the uso of ono of the existing railways
for the purpose ol reaching the Detroit
River, bul this could not be done excepl
on conditions In which your directors
fell ii woiilil'i..' most unwise te submit.
Aside irom the Detroit extension
mid tlie eastern entrance te Toronto the
only new work now on hand is a branch
of ten miles from Mission, B. <'., forty-
three miles easl of Vancouver, i" tlie iii
ternational boundary te connect with n
railway that Is being made by un
Independent company extending south
ward to the Important city of Keattle,
I'ngi'l  Sound.   This shorl lirnncli Is the
LAST LINK
in Iho chain ol railway connections along
Iho Pacific coast from'tho Canadian Pacific railway te Ihellulf of California.  Tbe
constructlo ihis line will add largely
to the through business of your railway
which hns heretofore been unable to
reach Iho citlesof Ibo Pacific eoasl except hy water from Vancouver. The
growth of traffic between Ottawa nnd Ibo
Northwest snd Ibe Pacific coast, an.l iho
disadvantage under which Iho company
has boon laboring in carrying
this traffic ovor its very round
about lino by in.' wav of Smith's Falls, a
disadvantage on time as well us in expense of transportation led yourdirectors
early last year te cause n survey lo be
made for u direct line between Sudbury
Junction und Toronto, which would
answer not alone for Ibe main lino trallic
but lor Ihnl of linos by way of Sault Ste.
Mnrie ns well. A favorable route wns
found from a point live miles wesl of
Sudbury to Kleinburg on theToronto,
Grey und Bruce section, near Toronto,
over whirb u railway with eaBy grading
nnd good alignment could be made al
moderate expense and upon which by
Ibe construction of twenty-four miles of
new line the distance could be reduced
between Toronto nnd Sudbury 288 miles,
us against 028 miles by the way of Smith's
Falls, saving no less than 290 miles. Tne
Grand Trunk Company, through its
purchase of ibe Northern nml North
Western Railways, bud acquired a
line from Toronto to a point on the Canadian Pacific, by the uso of which ibe distance between Sudbury nml Toronto
would be llllli mill's, and although its uso
would require trallic to be carried 71
miles further than hy tho surveyed line
before mentioned, nml us your company
would hnvo to bear ull or nearly ull ol
the expenses due to tho longer distance
il wns deemed expedient tn arrange if
possible with tho Grand Trunk Company for handling ibe trallic between
Toronto and North liny over its lino und
thus lo avoid nny additional expenditure
of capital, Such nn arrangement is
nearly completed and hns been anticipated bv sending the trallic Hint way
for the pnst two months, ll is hoped
that tbo arrangement mny bo found so
satisfactory to both companies us in prevent Hie construction of a new lino (or a
long timo to come. The connections
necossnry lo the full completion of your
railway Bysteni nro now few in iiuinbor.
Tho iniisl important are between Toronto
nn• CookBvillo) ami Hamilton, Hamilton
nnd Niagara Falls, nml Hamilton and
Woodstock nml will require short linos
30, I" and 17 miles respectively. Tho
South Ontario Pacific Railway Company,
a friendly organization, is likely sunn to
provide these connections. The construction of these short lines will give your
company no Independent ncceBB lo Hamilton, the third eity of importance in the
Dominion, nnd to the important manufacturing towns of Brantford, Dundas,8t.
Catharines, Thorold and ui ihe same time
atl'ord a much desired connection between
TIIK   ISIUU'KSIIKNT    AM1EKK AN
railways centering at the Niagara Falls
nml those west of Detroit nnd an urgently
needed connection between your
linos ami those linos leading In
Now York from .Niagara Falls
nml Buffalo. 'I'ho only other connections
Hint remains lo be established is one
from the south end of your St. Lawrence
briihie near Montreal, southwesterly
to a junction with the Rome Waterman
and Ogdensbnrg railway near Dundee.
This line, fi.'i miles in length, is proposed
to be constructed by the Southwestern
railway company, another friendly organization, ana will extend through
achalnof towns on tbe south bunk of
the St Lawrence river, and afford lo your
company's lines oast of Montreal, adirocl
connection with tho Central and Western
railway. It is highly desirable that a
branch lino of aboul itiO miles should be
inude us soon us prnrlii'nblo from Brandon,
Man., southwesterly to the Soures coal
field, Tbo country along the Sotuvs
River is already well settled and is suffering for want of railway facilities, and the
early construction ofl.no line is necessary
besides for the protection of yonr Interests In southwestern Manitoba. This
would hnvo to be made by yonr company
under its general powers in respect of
branch lines. In order to effectually
Boctire the company's intercsis wobI ol
Sault Slo. Mario certain ;i.I\-.i11<-.-.- have
been made in connection with tho sys
loin of railways extending from lhal
point. Tin'-io aro credited in iho uecoiints
receivable and miscellaneous securities
as shown by Ibo balance sheet, and represent Ihe major porl ions of I ho increase
under Ibai head. At Hn- lasl session of
the Dominion Parliament an ail was
passed providing for ibe consolidation of
tho various obligations of tho company
into n perpetual debenture Block, bearing
u rate of interest notexceeding I percent.
and if is Imped lhal arrangements will bo
made for the conversion of n considerable
portion of ibo existing securities un
terms that will bo advantageous in iho
company. H was deemed wise at the
same lime lo obtain tho power io provide
Inn reasonable extent for ftiluro requirements in the way uf Improvements ami
facilities not alone for the lilies owned
by the company, hni for those leased tn
it, but tbo authority to issuo debentures
at the rule of £600 per mile [orthese purposes will imi hnvo In he passed nt

LETTEES FROM THE PEOPLE.
Knn.'i: Cut imi:i::-- Being absent from
lown for some time 1 have lost trace of
several matters in which I am somewhat
interested, If you or some of your numerous renders could enlighten me I would
feel very much obliged. 1 hear that a
would drive hiraaway. Thocaptain ordered | bench of magistrates refused to grant any
him to go about his business, not wishing t* j more licenses for the sale of intoxicating
toso a man, but Finch waited until tho officers wore off their [guard, and then went
overboard off the lee bow with a great splash.
Thero was a wild cry from the crew and a
rush With ropes, but Tom looked up nnd
laughed aud swam around tho stern of the
ship. Tho big man eater had backed off
about twenty feet at the splash, but two
others, almost as large, had come up on tho
quarters, and there lay threo of tho wickedest fish iu tlio Atlantic ocean. Everybody
shouted and gestured, and half a dozen
ropes' ends wire thrown to Tom, but ho
would not mind us. He suddenly sunk below the surface and made a bee line for tho
big fish, niul, to my surprise, the old fellow
darted aside Lo escape the collision.
It is truth to ti.e letter that Tom Finch
drove overy one of those monsters away from
the ship, and for an hour be paddled about in
the water and was unharmed
liquors, and that a judge has ordered a
license to be given. There is something
serious involved iu this, as ninety
petitioned against the license and only
one for it.. Again, bow can one man living in Victoria be a better judge of what
is required in Nanaimo than eight m.-n
who are residents here, if a judge can
order a license to be issued (which is
doubtful; see ruling of Chief Justice in
the case of Towle nt. the Magistrates of
Langley), he can also issue a license.
Hence a licensing bench is a farce unci

THE DECEASED WIFE'S  SISTER,
The i io»t long-suffering ami ll"' worst-
used ol h.-r sex. says tbe Edinburgh
Scotsman, is the Deceased Wife's Sister.
She is constantly being " talked about."
Her conduct and'her wishes, hor rights
and her wrongs, are annually laid upon
the table of Parliament, of ecclesiastical
Oour.s, and of Social Bcience Congresses,
and there publicly dissected nnd commented upon. It cannot be shown thai
she has committed any sin worthy of
Bach a punishment Mind the sooner she
can be permitted to retire again into
private life, the better it will be for herself and for private business.
The latest indignity attempted lo l>o
put upon her is that of being taken to
hits anil smuggled piecemeal through
Parliament. Mr. Arthur Elliott submitted the portion allotted In Scotland to
the notice of the House of Commons on
Wednesday, and after ahurriedexamination it was allowed to puss one of its
ordeals. A real, tliou;;li not n large
grievance, and an undoubted scandal, is
implied in the anomalous position occupied by the sister of the deceased wife
who consents to marry the husband oi
her deceased rister.
Formerly, it seems, she could he hanged. Now the most formidable weapon
raised against her is the eighteenth verse
of the eighteenth chapter of Leviticus.
That is a text which Biblical critics cannot agree in interpreting; and it therefore passes the wit of those who a.ic not
versed iu the law and tlie prophets, even
when they are willing to admit that all
tiie refinements ofthe Mosaic Law are to
be held decisive of tho marriages that
can or ought to he legalized in this year
of grace. In spite of Leviticus—if Leviticus is against marriage with a Deceased's
Wife's SiBter—smii bonds are recognized
as legitimate and permissible in the
United States and in many oi the Hritish
colonies.
They are contracted also in this country, though they are not yet legalized;
and while the principal parlies do nol
suffer loss of caste, their children, even
when they ure the children oi people who
have entered into a perfectly legal ami
binding marriage in another part of the
British Empire, are subjected to the reproach and wrong of being held illegitimate.
The opponents of this admitted anomaly and grievance must know lhat il con
be removed in only one way--hy sanctioning such marriages. In these circumstances, it is not. easy to see what service they expect to render to public mortals hy persisting in their attitude of resistance, more especially when, putting
aside the dubious evidence of Leviticus,
it will seem, upon careful nml unbiassed
sifting, that the weight of argument,
based alike upon family expediency, is in
favor of giving the sanction of law to
these unions.
On the other hand, it is doubtful
whether Ihe advocates of the change
have done well to try to Introduce their
principle piece-meal in ll Bill which
seems to he "rough" with careless drafting, and rich in dubious statements,
concerning the marriage laws of Scotland. This may have been a sufficient
reason why the Lord Advocate should
have opposed the second reading, I hough
there must have been doubts, even in his
own mind, after he he luul heen closured
and defeated with the aid of some of his
own colleagues.
To such as aro not profoundly concerned in the question, it is curious to observe how much the efforts of the advocates of a change in the law are stimulated by those who have already broken il,
. and how generally it seems to he assumed hy opponents that the fact that thoy
have no desire themselves to marry a ile-
ceaseil wife's sister is the best of reasons
why they should not allow others so
minded to exercise their judgment and
discretion upon the point,
At Battleford, we learn from the Saskatchewan Herald, steps are being taken
to bring to a consummation the plan to
erect a memorial to the men who fell in
tho rebellion. The proposed monument
will be erected In the Mounted I'olice
burying ground where the dead now n-st,
ami it is fitting thai so worthy an iulen-
tion as thai of honoring the memories of
tho brave tellowf who died defending the
Integrity of their country, should not be
unnecessarily delayed In its carrying out.
The project is one that will be sympathetically viewed everywhere in the
Dominion. The admiration for tho
courageous defenders of law and author-
it) in the Northwest is still warm and
sincere throughout the country.

EDITORIAL NOTES
Sunday freight trains have heen ilis-
rontlnued on the Vauderbilt minis east
ol Chicago for almost purely religious
reusoiiH, iih Mr. Depew explains. Whether
this is to remain the permanent policy or
not will probably depend much upon
its economical results. The encroachments upon Sunday have heen growing
rapidly of lute, anil Ihey bode no (rood to
laboring men. An occasional day of rest
is essential to their physical well being
and the extra pay for Sunday work cannot compensate them for its loss. The
arguments for the observance of Sunday!
to the extent of refraining from work,
are unanswerable and conclusive. The
roan who rests one day out of seven will
live longer and accomplish more in the
end, other things being equal, than the
man who undertakes to keep the physical
machine constantly in motion. The
religious aspects of the question are entirely apart irom this view of it, and
should not be made the reason for Sunday observance except hy those who sincerely reCOi'nbie their obligation.
A United States court Iiiib decided
that "newspapers placed upon the top
of a letter box are not mailed," ancl that
a thief who carries tbem away does not
tamper with the mulls. If thnt is the
law, would it not be well for the govern-

WHAT   SWEETENS   HER   EXISTENCE    SEVERAL    REASONS    WHY    IT    MAV
AND   WHAT    DOESN'T- NOT   BE   PROFITABLE.
THE LATEST MECHANICAL WONDER.
A Figure That Poll* Out    Its    Watch and
Tells Ouo the Time.
Professor Charles KU-hel. tbe Inventor of
the flying mncbtut which nreated so much
Interest a few years ago, Is Just completing a
mechanical wonder which Is an astonishing
piece of mechanism. It promises to create a
great furor throughout the country He has
been over a year experimenting vt ith It, and
hat at last achieved result* which at the out
start seemed Impossible. II ■ was pi vou carte
blanche from a watch manufacturing concern
to get up the novelty, time aud expense be
log a secondary consideration. Professor
Hichel has kept the matter secret, and has
permitted nc ono to enter bis study excepting one or two intimate frienda A reporter
was given a private view lust evening.
Tbe entrance to tho studio Is by way of a
dark staircase on John street Double doors,
a screen and a heavy curtain shut out tbe
daylight. Electric lights aro used to work
by. There aro all Borts of grotesque hor Is,
arms and bits of plaster auatomy hunging
around the room, and up< in tbe work bench
are brass molds and a variety ot Una Unol*
for tbe purpose of working in stool and brass
The new wonder bu liieMzcdyoutbof per
baps sixteen years of ugu He is a fine look
ing ladt in perfect Imitation of the average
boy of the present day. The figure stands
upon the floor, and ls attired In Knickerbock
crs and laced shoes, vest, coat, etc—to all ap
pearances a living boy Professor Rfchel did
not approach the figure, but spoke to It, say
ing, " Good evening, Hobby; what time Is
It ?" The figure turned its bead and bowed
slightly, and with its left hand pulled back
the coat. The right band, which bad been
hanging at the side, was lifted up to the vest
pocket and drew out a wutch. The watch was
then carried up to tho ear, ut the same time
the head turned so us to bring the ear down
in a listening attitude, while the eyes closed.
When the silent youth was assured that the
watch was ticking the hand dropped slightly
forward; the head turned so as to bring tho
face to look full at tho watch, the eyes opened
and a pleased smile spread over the features
Tbe head was then thrown back, the band
which held the watch between the thumb
und index finger returned the watch to the
vest pocket and was tbon gracefully swung
back into Its resting position by tbe side.
The mouth opened, and with a pleasant
laugh the figure said: "It's Just half past 8,
gentlemen."
Bo naturally was all this performed that
for on Instant it seemed as If tho figure was
an actual living being. Thero was no Jerky
movement, nor the slightest Jar or noise. The
eyes opened and closed and tho head moved
about to all appearances like a living ono.
Professor Rlchel laughed and said, "Whatdo
you think of itP and then proceeded to ex
plain bow it waa operated, inside the figure
ls an electric motor. This had been set in op
eration by touching a concealed button In the
iioor several feet away where tbe professor
had been standing. Afterwards he opened
the chest of the figure and exposed where
the cams, springs, weight balances, spirals
and levers which had caused the arms and
bead to move* The cleverest parts are those
which cause the wrist, thumb and fingers to
move. The artlculatory mechanism is very
similar to tbat employed In a phonograph. -
New Vork World.
The Host and His Guests.
Social Intercourse or the exchange of ot vill
ties should be solely for the betterment and
refinement of mankind, and if the status of
snob Is not based upon a high sense of deli
cacy and cultivation the results must bo
fruitless.
A, knowledge of human naturo is also Im
portent In the grouping of people. A wise
entertainer knows the ability of his friends
and acquaintances, and would not invite
Casslus-llke frienda, with aversion to music
In their souls, to a mualcale, even though a
Rubensteln was to plav and a Pattl to sing.
Neither would he Invite the bigot in religion
to meet a rival one of another school, nor an
apostle of Voltaire expecting pleasure from
the discussion sore to arise. Nor would he
bid political antipodes to attend a "con
venation" on government affairs, with
out expecting warm words and un
pleasant ol as ning Of opinions. Neither
would such Invite the brightest lights of the
dramatic world to meet those whose religious
scruples prompt them to look upon tho drama
as a satanlo invention for the destruction of
human souls. Nor would it do to Invite tho
merry, light hearted, youthful Terpsichorean
to meet the sages of the court and the senate,
knowing Intuitively that there oould be nothing congenial between tho dignity aud
thoughtfuln&sfl of the one and tbe frivolity
and merriment of the other. A correct regard for tha taste and weaknesses of one's
guests must be considered, to bring only congenial people together as far as it Is possible
to do so.
In oflMaljssHsrlaliilng, hosts have no discretion, and are in no wise responsible for the
juxtaposition of discordant elements. The
rules of official etiquette fix the position of
rank and privilege In the social world, and
consequently the unavoidable and lncongru
one grouping, and unpleasant Incidents that
mTtT'r1*** occur.—Mrs. John A. Logan In
Chicago Journal,
Emperor William's Swords.
Thelate Emperor William only used two
■words and one saber throughout his long
fighting career. The flrst sword was his boyish
weapon, carried from 1810 to 1834, the second waa a present from the Czar Nicholas,
which served bim from 1834 to the time of
tbe war with Austria in I860. On the mem
arable day of Sadowu tbe emperor adopted
tab Infantry saber, which he wore to tbe last,
bod on which he bad engraved the names of
All his victories In the Austrian and Franco
Btansdan campaigns. These historical weap
on* aro to be stored In tbe Berlin museum,

"Well,   we havo to be hero at 8 o'clock
every morning, whether wo live on  the east
| side), the west side, fn   Brooklyn or Harlem,
and 8 o'clock isn't an  unreasonable hour at
ail, nor do wo ever complain, but If wo are
ten minutes Into, no matter why, we are
fined    Of course, to the nasb  girls this flue
means going without the cup of hot coffee or
the little bit of fruit she would havo bought
! to pjeosout her little lunch, hut, no far ns i
[ »iu  concerned,   '.  don't care anything about
the fine; it Is the restriction that I object to
I and the being reprimanded   1 don't intend
'■ to be late.    I am just, as  much interested in
i being hero iu time nnd selling a lot of goods
I as tho proprietor b bimsalf    1 like my busi-
j nesa, anil am proud of my sales and anxious
j to begin my work foi   tbe day, and the idea
; that because I happen to miss a car, or have
one of the thousand little delaying accidents
thut every   woman  and man, too,   for  that
matter   Ih   liable   to.   that  smuo man who
known nothing about me has a right to reprimand  me and  Hue me |ust makes me cross
and hurts my pride,
"Then tho hardest thing of all a shop girl
has to endure in the constant standing from
t) In the morning until o at night, with only
una hulf hour rent nt noon A few years ago
soma "he stirred up thin subject and seats
wm-e placed behind Ihe counter, but they
have heen all taken away The salesladies
in suit departments can Kit down, but not
in the room where the customers are. Of
course, if they go away In tho little side
room Lu rent they miss their customers, aud
the consequence Is thai tbey stand all day
outside We do nni mind It on busy days,
the excitement keeps ns up, but on dull day"
we almost faint away lorjietlrnns standing
still with nothing to make us forget how
(i red wo are.
"We have half nn hour for lunch, which is
tune enough for a person to eat a cold lunch,
but when a girl stands from 8 o'clock until 2,
nfter a 7 o'clock breakfast,.she wants some
thing besides a sandwich and a cup of tea foi
bei lunch. 1 used to go out and buy my
lunch and have a regular hot dinner, as 1
wonld at homo. 1 needed it, and worked ull
i he better for it, but of course 1 couldn't gel
a in half an hour. I was usually gone fort)
minutes After a while 1 was denied that
privilege, and 1 have to eat my lunch in tbo
lunch room. 1 don't liken cold luucb, ami
somehow the thought of tho being compelled
io do anything like that fills my heart witli s
kind of bitterness thut takes away all my up
w-tite ft isn't the cold lunch or tho hoi
ninth room where tbey make coffee In one
uud and eat In the other, though; that Isn't
..'tnctly what I am used to ut home, but it l&
i he restraint that 1 rebel against.
At 0 o'clock sharp we are all excused In a
batch, and away we pour out of the door like
a mob of factory hands, and tho people all
■-ay, 'See the shop girls." Now, ifsoniocould
when they had no customers, go at fifteen
minutes toO or ten minutes to 0, don't you
4ee we wouldn't all flock out together and at
tract attention, for part of us would goat
me time and part at another, but now it i.i
push und crowd und jam to get out, so that
if you would go decently and in a ladylike
way you have to wait until all tho crowd I.-
goua
'There are a great many things 1 might do
•veilings to enjoy myself, but 1 am too tired
'■nd feel so kind of bitter and sorry and re
■:entful In my heart that I don't want to go
■mywhere. I liko my work, am interested in
it, and do not want to glvo it up any mon
ilmn a man wants to give up his business
My employer Is very kind, my salary Is yer)

nendont business women, earning as much
uud in many cases more than men fti th.
same places, and wo do not liko to be gov
crned like tbe Inmates of an orphan home oi
house of correction.
"And what kind of men do wo marry'
Well, they have to bo pretty nico, or wo don't
bother with them. Tho better class of sales
ladles rarely marry employes in the store
Don't you see we are independent, and unless
wo are going to better ourselves very much
or unless we get hopelessly in lovo, we do not
core to marry at alL I know many girls who
huve married very well, and have lovei-,
homos. Do we ever marry the customer'
whom we meet In the store! Well/ with a
toss of the blonde bead and a pretty flush in
the timid face, "1 kuow some who might
have married some of their customers, but
wouldn't
"As far as promotion ls concerned, that
rests entirely with ourselves, is based on out
ability, and 1 think is very fair and just
Some girls never get promoted because they
lock ability and push, and others got to tin
top in a short tuna The promotions are from
cash to parcel clerk,ffrom that to stock clerk
one who assists in keeping tho goods in ordei
then to bill clerk, saleslady, cashiers and flooi
walkers, and wages incroaso from two dollar
up to thirty or moro."
"How much pay do I get?" said a little,
tuir faced maiden behind the counter. "Fi vo
dollars a week, unless something happens.'
"And what does happen to prevent it!''
"Well, If Vm late a few minutes 1 am
lined, if I am half an hour late I lose oue-
'piarter of a day's wages, if 1 make the least
little mistake In my bills that is taken out of
my pay, and if I break anything that bos to
be paid for. If I am sick hulf a day 1 lose
that, and so you seo 1 don't always get the $5.
Tbe floor walker doesn't always Took when
she hears a crash, because if sho doesn't kuow
what breaks or who breaks it, why tben fihe
can't report it. But sho always docs took if
the superintendent is anywhere on the floor
Sometimes one dish costs a whole week'*
pay.
"No, our superintendent Isn't a woman,
and I'm glad of It, A woman does nothing
but scold and stew and fuss all the time over
little things. Yes, if ■ jwtfcr hard to keep
up all tbe fines, but I suppose ft' makes us
more careful, w "that we really do not havo
so very many to pay No, Wsjth&ve no seats
now; they have all been taken away. Sometimes two or three of us em wd on the edge of
a drawer that pulls out near Che floor, but we
fly up lively if we see tlio floor walker coming this way."
"The girls abused tho privilege," explained
the floor walker, a delicate looking girl
"They were uot quick to rise up when customers came in, and grow neglectful and
indolent Of course, it is tiresome to stand
so long, and girls need to be strong to endure
It, but they like tbe work aside from that,
and in time they seem to grow accustomed
to it, so that they do not mind it as thoy do
at first. fl
''The hardest things we have to get along

A Knowledge of Elementary Studies
Needed — Let Cookery he Learned at
Dome—Objections  to   Kitchens   In   City
SchnollHHiMt-H -   IN-lt blent     Puluts.
The women who propose to Introduce in
ntruction in the science and  art of cooking
Into the public schools-  undoubtedly  mean
well.    Their offer to pay   the expenses of a
teacher and to provide the  articles that are
to be prepured for food is commendable.    It
is understood, however, that this proposition
la only  with a view of  making a publlo ex
! periment.    If it is sueeessf ul the design is to
have cooking taught,  us reading,   writing, i
Uermau and musio uow are,  at the cost of
taxpayer:-.    It will take ltd place in the reg
ular course of studies.
That overy   woman,   whatever her rank. •
: should understand how to prepare the various '
' kinds of   food  tn common   use   is  certain
Nothing promotes the happiness of mankind
In general as much  as gtxxi  food.    Poorly ,
! prepared food ruins the health of many fam [
! iliea    Wasteful cooking  prevents the pros  :
I perity of a still larger number     Keonomy In I
j the kitchen. It is said,  enabled tbe  Hronch
nation to pay  the indemnity demanded  by
' (lermany for a foolish war, and allowed the
'■ peasantry to contribute millions toward dig
1 gtug the  Panama cuiml     Persons of every
age and condition appreciate a good meal
; Cooking deserves to be recognized as oue of
j tlie tine urta    For  its highest development
science as well as skfli and experience ore
j required.    It ls oue of the most hopeful signs
i of tlio times that several chemists have lately
I delivered  courses ot   lectures  and written
j works on the science of cookery.    The latter
j are now taking the place of the empirical
| cook book.
TOO MANY   HTl'blES.
The propriety, however, of Introducing
| cooking into tbe common schools Is question
; able. An attempt is mode to Impart lnstruo
j Mon in quite too many things now. The
| school life of the majority of pupils ls limited
to 500 days. They cannot learn to read,
write and compute simple numbers in this
short time. Every new brunch interferes
with progress in what ure known as the
fundamental studies If human beings are
to occupy a place above that of the common
animals It Is certainly necessary that they
learn to read lu the language of the country,
to express their thoughts on paper and to
compute numbers, A very large proportion
of pupils leave the schools uow only only one
step removed from illiteracy. German,
music, drum ing and gymnastics have each
had an Influence in preventing them from
learning bow to use the Kngllsh language in
uny other way than in conversation.
A knowledge of cookery can be acquired
out of school much better than a knowledge
of reading, writing, arithmetic and geogra
phy. If a girl can read and write well, mi
derstands the value of weights and mens
uses, and is tolerably familiar wltb tbe terms
employed in practical science, she con learn
much about cookery by tbe study of books.
A knowledge of the elementary studies ordl
narily taught lu common schools Is as im
portant to learning cookery as to learn ie
anything else.
BKVKIIAI. OBJECTIONS,
There ore great objections to fitting up
rooms In school bouses to be used for cooking
food Ovens, stoves, ranges and a large
number of utensils will, of course, be neces

I lay upon the moonlight sand
Lulled by the mighty threnody
Turumnied on the keyboard of the strsnft
By ghostly fingers of the sea.
I gazed into thc cloudless night,
Beyond the near and barren Star
That gives the world divines* light,
Out, out where vtowless planets are.
A weird dream flitted o'er my soul—
Bubllmer music filled my ears;
X heard Titanic breakers roll
On 6hores of undiscovered spheres.

Sketch of a Hoston Cat.
Our household Includes an aggravated cat.
It is a cat marked with idiosyncrasies, and a
great many of them. She is familiarly known
to the family as the "Lunatic," but any one
, of a dozen other  names  would  hit her as
hard.   Sho likes attention, does Kitty, and
1 will havo It or know why    She takes every
peal of the door hell as a personal summons
i to como to the fore, and no housejnnid proves
I agile enough  to  intercept her course.    Once
! inside the reception room sho is mistress of
; the situation.   Suddenly emerging from her
' retreat,  she    will    utter   an  ear  piercing
m-e-a-owl  delivered in a sharp staccato, and
' dash across the room, us if going to a fire.
I Returning, at short Intervals she repeats tho
['experiment till she makes a sensation.    She
1 likes also to call around during the night
1 watches.    When  tho  looking up process be-
I gins she dashes to concealment, a hackneyed
| and thoroughly catty trick, with no claim to
! originality, but if you find hor you arc lucky,
and if you catch her  you are luckier still.
Bhe has better things in  mind than a night
■ spent outside, or oven  down  cellar.    She
[ waits until tho dread small hours, when, If
' you are ever to sleep, you are Boundly sleop-
j ing, and then she comes to your room and
J calls you like tho trump of Gabriel—and calls
I again, and keeps calling.   Ro does your sense
i of duty, und you pull your senses together
I and do some calling in return. Silence reigns,
but your ears ring with her serenado; It was
no dream, so you got up and illuminate the
house.   The portiere system favors her.   She
has a long range.    You hunt and coax and
call, but no kitty appears.   It ls her little
Joke.  In the daytime you know whero to find
her.   Bars and bolts wouldn't keep her out of
your very best parlor.   There aro warmer
nooks, and, to your liking, cozier; but a parlor is a parlor, and one's dignity ls worth
something.   So there reclines all day Mine.
Fussy, the Lunatic, with method iu her madness.    Sho Is of  fair complexion,  in good
health, excellent spirits, and for sale at a
bargain.—Boston Commonwealth.
Geu. B. V, Butler's Famous Order.
While tha Ancient and Honorable artillery
visitors from London and Boston were in
Washington a party of them made a call out
evening on Gen. Butler, wbo happened to in
in town. The general was in one of his most
gracious moods, and as full of bis peoullai
humor as an egg Is full of meat He woe
glad to seo his callers, and made them feet
that they were welcome. Tho Englishmen
showed a great Interest In him. And came
away delighted with their reception. Then
curiosity waa quite equal to their Interest.
and they piled the general with question*
which were characterized by a sort of mix
turo of Yankee iuquiaitiveneas and British
bluntness. MaJ. Becker "wanted to know
you know," about that famous order at Mew
Orleans for the summary and degrading pu n
ishment of any woman who should Insult a
Miidier, tha major stating frankly that It had
caused a good deal of indignation among
chevalier Englishmen.
-'Well gentlemen," said the general with
a twinkle In his eye, "I am very glad to
tell you how that happened.    One of my
officers, a modest, Christian gentleman, went
to church one Sunday    Just aa he was about
to enter the door u woman stepped up to him
and spit In bis face.   On bis return he re
ported the occurrence to ma    'What did you
dof I asked.   'Do, general' said be, *what
could I dof  I just took out my handkerchief,
wiped my face and went Into the church.1   1
said:    That's all right, but i can's stand thlj,
sort of thing, nnd I'm going to do aoauthhig
about it'   Hooked over a whole lot of city
ordinances and municipal  regulations and
papers of that sort, und at last, goutlemen, I
found Just what I wanted in a regulation or
1 the city of London, which I copied and madu
I the basis of the famous order which caused
| so much Indignation among the good people
; across tho water and elsewhere.  I want to tell
! you furthermore," pursued the general, "that
j It was a perfectly effective order.   There
; waanotasinglecaseof punishment under It,
i The ladies of New Orleans wouldn't violate
I It because they did not wish to be taken for
| women of the town, and the woman of the
I town wouldn't violate it because they wished
i to be taken for ladles.''—Chicago Herald

Dangerous Vegetables*
There ls light at lust ou a subject of vast
impart mice to all vegotable eaters. It sooms
that a green vegetable is as surely injurious
to health us green fruit. But cooking will
generally render a fruit harmless, while It
will uot do st) for a vegetable. A recent case
of wholesale poisoning of French soldiers
was traced to thu BOJanine iu unripe potatoes.
This esculent U poisonous more often than is
supposed. If dug before maturity the tuber
is by no means safe. But far worse is it to use
a potato for food that has, after being dug,
been exposed to the light for any length of
time. They should he stored in the dark as
soou as dug. If bitter thoy should never he
eaten. Tlw more discoveries aro made as to
our health and to our sanitary needs tbe less
wo seem near to a true knowledge of the best
conditions for sustaining health and life.—

An Old Fashioned Gun.
A curious Thibetan musket or matchlock
has found its way from Sikkim, where It was
picked up after a battlo, to Calcutta. It is
described in the Indian papers as of primitive design, although comparatively new. It
is a smooth bore muzzle loader, mounted on
a long, narrow stock. Tho barrel is fitted
with a double pronged rest, tho points of
which aro sharply shod, so that tho rest itsolf
may either bo placed firmly In the ground or
used, if necessary, as a bayonet. Tho con
trivanco is ingonious, and the weapon Is not
altogether u> bo despised. Attached to it is n
holt, on which aro strung six hollow wooden
plugs for'powder charges and a small horn
for priming powder. —Philadelphia todger.
Chinese Ohont Lore.
In various parts ot China there ls a belief
that tho souls of very atrocious criminals
who have either been executed or diod in
prison aro sent back from hades bv Yenlo,

of imprisonment, one death not being enough
to expiato thoir crimes. When the second
term of imprisonment is adjudged to have
expired the district magistrate beseeches tho
tutelary deity of the city to accompany him
to the prison In order to acquaint the ghost
with his release. The order ls supposed to
reach the Imprisoned bv burning it, a ceremony which is solemnly carried out in the

Journalism for literary work, and with
that end in view, and also to restore bis
health, he took a trip to America. .Mr.

tbat tbev were not nearly so bud
us tbey were painted. Ho particularly
referred lo the dryness of the atmosphere
ami said that be bud frequently left the
cold more on H really raw day in London. Hut it was only when speaking ol
llriiiab Columbia thai Mr, Glaser became really enthusiastic, lie bus been
travelling for pleasure, and with Hie intention of picking up Information for his

as far as Duncan's Hay, and it is bis intention to return to that district at a

lead a nomad's life in the far west.
Mr. tilaser and bis wife have travelled
in many climes, but itremainedfor them
to visit British Columbia lo discover a

tbo "Ultima Thulc" we read about. It is
the intention of Mr. Glaser to write up this

there are so many there who are merely
dragging out an existence and wbo
would be so much happier in this favored
clime. He will go lo Victoria by this
morning's train with the intention of returning at an early dale. Mr. Glaser
said that it was quite a relief to be absent irom large cities, among which most
of his journalistic career lias been spent.
He is very anxious lu study the habits uf
the aborigines uf this country, and perhaps when be lias be will be as tired of
