The announcements that the war in

that China is commencing in earnest

The Government will appoint eight
thousand census enumerators hefore
the electoral campaign is over. Ministers are evidently preparing for defeat. Hy a precedent of their own,this
patronage would he denied them if
Ihey met disaster at the polls, and
they aie resolved to exercise it while
siill in ostensible enjoyment of the
confidence of the country.

Tho expected is happening. Rumor
1ms persisted in maintaining for h<>v-
eral yenrs past that Mr. Ilujfh .1. Macdonald would return to Dominion polities, and that on the retirement of
the atfed ehieftain, Sir Charles Tupper. he would be made leader of tlie
Conservative party. These changes
would seem to lie in progress. On
Thursday  Mr.    Macdonald   accepted a
nomination for Brandon* in opposition to the Minister of the Interior,
whom lie will have no trouble in
whipping   out    of his    hoots, and   the
rest will doubtless follow in due
time. Conservatives will be sorry to
part with their present veteran leader; but there is no making of compromises with Nature, and it is only
a matter of a Short time when he Khali
lie obliged to lay aside his mantle,
whether willing or not, ami there iH
no one so tit to take it up as the son
of his old chief, wlio has proved ids
mettle hy capturing Manitoba from
the enemy. Sir Charles will no doubt
retain thc leadership throughout the
Ooming campaign, but with Mr. Macdonald always in evidence an Iii . siie-
OGSSor. The Conservatives are playing
a skillful game, and few thingB in
the future nn- more  certain than that
it will be a winning one.   in oonneo

(From The London Mail.)
One spring night eleven yenrs ago, a
stout gentleman with u red face, nut
cracker features, anil prominent eye,
cunic tumbling into Vienna out of
the   mysterious East.
His great-uncle begun life by herding swine,then founded a dynasty, He
himself had just renounced   a throne.
For the rest he owed a lliidapest
hosier   seventy-eight   florins,   with  a
trifle to his tailor,   On  reaching  the
hotel he popped into beil like u philosophic monai'Oh,     lie slept as  be   bad
never done in Servia, where, under
the style of Milan V. he bad been u
pattern for his people.
Over in Belgrade his son Alexander,
agetl twelve, reigned in his stead,
Queen Natalie, his divorced wife,
preferred any other part of Europe,
she was the daughter of a Russinn
colonel   named  Keohko,  a large land
owner in  llessarabia.
"I had a dowry of seven millions,"
she exclaimed sadly to her lady-in-
waiting, while the two were one day
smoking cigarettes! "and my mother
came of royal blood. 1 should have
married better."
Her husband   concurred,     lie spoke
of her us his worst enemy.
Tlieir quarrels Culminated in a fracas at the cathedral on Easter Sunday, The serivce had jimt ended,
and the court   wus   filing   out   before
the royal pair. According to the national custom, tho King kissed eaoh
man upon the lips, tlie Queen each
woman,   A woman presented herself
whom Natalie chose not to notice.
The woman stood there expectant,
stopping' tlie procession, waiting to
be kissed. Tlle Queen. with face
averted, stared coldly at the high altar, she was paler than usual���that
was all.
'KISS MADAME!"
The significance Of the episode pen
etrated from end to end of the cathedral.     Milan turned.
lie had come  straight from  dinner
to attend tlie service, nnd showed
temper.
���Kiss  Madame���,"  he   whispered
huskily, clutching ut his wife's   arm,
"No."
"Kiss Madame," he repealed, this
time in tones which could be heard
throughout the building, Natalie
still refusing, the King then ami
there proceeded to personal violence.
Many assert he tried to strangle her.
It is certain that some of the courtiers antl foreign Ministers found it
necessary lo interpose. They hurried
the poor Queen away.
She went abroad, taking the Crown
rince   with   her.    duly,  1889,    found
tbem at Wiesbaden.
The woods behind the Platte, the
Kursaal Gardens, where one of the
most superb of string orchestras wails
nit Wagner twice a day, constitute
un environment befitting afflicted royalty. But tlie rain fell that summer
s it has never fallen any Bummer
lnce. Natalie's villa at the edge of
the town was desolation. On the
most desolate day of all, and at Hint
niosi desolate hour when luncheon is
jnst   ended,   the son stood nt the (lining room   window   thirsting   nfter   a
���ak in tlle clouds.    The  bell   at the
front door rang.    It proved the   knell
f a mother's happiness.
THE DEVOTED FATHER.
It proved likewise an enunissary
from King Milan, who found that be
joubl exist no longer without bis
���liild. Tbe events which thereupon
-���lisuetl in the squalid tragedy of these
inointeil sovereigns scandalized Europe.

Pan Points
Tin Pans are not all
alike. There's the difference in the tin, in the
ironing, and in the making. All the points that
go to make the difference
between good and bad
quality are embodied in
tin pans.
We Have Tin Pans of
Every Kind and Size
made from extra heavy
stock, and warranted to
wear well. All our Hardware is equally meritorious.
