Christmas entertainment for those
whose fortune had not taken just the

to provide for themselves the entertainment which is the ambition of
every good Bpirlted citizen on sach a
festive occasion.
To be sure there were others who
would have taken up the work of providing for tbe poor and needy bad the
firemen not done so. but it is very
doubtful whether the work of providing the hundred and one things distributed on ChrlBtmas could have been
done in the same good-hearted manner as the Royal City's rire fighting
contingent did it. And it was some
task at that. Anyone who believes
that Secretary Joe Hall had a cinch

the railroad company, the latter even

Mr. MacNeill, however, objects to

place to a more modern and more
substantial building In event of the
G. N. R. not entering Into an agreement with the Canadian Northern Pacific llne tor a union depot. The proposed new depot Is to cost ln the

It Is expected thai another meeting wlll be held In the near future

A .IOU WHAT IS.
We folks in Canada sometimes arc inclined to throw
out our chests and elevate our nasal organs when we talk
of the great tilings we are doing, and at present, the great
things we arc planning in regard to port works in preparation for ihe opening of the Panama canal. Of course, nobody begrudges us a reasonable assortment of pride in our
accomplishments and projects, but it takes a little starch
out of our pomposity when we pick up a paper and read
that Holland, a little two-by-four postage stamp on the
map of Europe, not one-three hundredth the size of thisl^r'^n
Dominion, is planning to drain the Zuyder Zee to get more'
land to build industries on. | Manitoba

more country and not being in a position to annex any
of thoir neighbor's back yards, the subjects of Queen Wil-

it has been practically decided that the old, historical Zuyder Zee must give place to farms, city streets and factory
chimneys.   This stretch of water was in days long gone
by a prosperous agricultural district, but the ocean was
too strong for the people then and wrested their fields
from them.   The Dutchman's grip, however, is hard to
break and donw through the centuries he has cherished
the idea of some time reclaiming the area stolen from him.

"Tiel.els!'' cried Ilu' eunilnelor. Ami
both geutlemeu plunged lulu their
pockets, tin' younger neglecting tu re
ply tu tbo other's question When bis
ticket bad heen luken up lie said:
���Mr,  Wlti'ldge,  i i-unie-M that your
.'iiiuounceiiieut bas .'ilTeeled me terribly. 1 dread being alone Ilils evening
l don't know what I may do I wish
Jim wuuld dine with me and keep me
company till bedtime."
"My dear buy, cume home wltb me,
i am alone in a big bouse uud win ba
delighted to entertain you."
So the unfortunate suitor wenl bomo
wild Mr. Wltrldge. and tiie two sat
down togetber to dinner The cider
man had dined alone nearly every day
since his wilV ami daughter had gone
abroad, mul It was a great comfort to
liiin   tu   bnve   n   companion,     lie   was
mucb pleased at his guest's appearance
ami thought that If Elsie bad given
her heart tu such a man the pill would
nut have been su bard to swallow'.
Mr. Wltrldge regretted deeply that
Klsie had not thought proper lo listen
lu his suit.
"Iiiii she encourage ynu?" be nsked
"Klicournge me! That Is nut the
way tu put it. Had she not made this
trip abroad all would have been differ
ent."
"I don't doubt It I was opposed tu
her going, H's a mistake tu expose
girls to those broken down foreign fortune hunters and American globe tint
ters. If I hail my way Elsie wuuld
bare remained at bome. llut If you're
ever man led. young man. you'll lind
ihat your wife knows everything and
unt know nothing "
"i nnly ask tn see yuur daughter
once iu win ber nwny from this fellow, She loves mo and me only.
Doubtless sightseeing together abroad,
dawdling In picture galleries, boating
cu the Italian lakes with hlm, ha\e
made ber think that sbe bas found a
new love. As sunn ns she [jets awny
from bis Influence sho may very easily
be brougbl under mine."
"Vou dou't menu It!"
"1 ilu    i am perfectly confident thai
In the 1 ottmn of my heart she loves
tne and ine only."
"Well, young man." be sni.l reso
lulely. "if yuu wish to renew your ml

The guest reached across ihe table .
nml   fervently   pressed  the  speaker's
hand.
"What  are  you   going to do  in  thc
matter?" naked Mr. Wltrldge preaentlj
"I will meet your daughter at the
dock wben she binds nnd be guided by
linuinstances."
"Hut  likely you'll  Ami thc other fel

"Leave nil Hint to me lie won't In

one has n liL'lit to do thut."
���Hut are you sure you enn manage
It nil?"
"Perfectly."
"Vnu were not engaged when Elsie
went away, were you'f'
"No."
"Then why nre you so sure?"
"Simply because l.'Nie lines me. and
uo man on enrth can take her nwny
frum me unless temporarily. As I have
snld. she has been under other Influ
ernes: then, too, she Is very young."
"Tonng! I should think so! She
should be In the nursery Instead ot

oi prot st.   The main demand of outh
u.i ��� tiiij-H is that the empire shall ea-
tahllsh   unemployment   Inaurance.  On
ibis subject the Socialists have Introduced  a  new  interpretation  into the
i. lc istag;  but It is probable that the
government answer -..ill be again unfavorable.    The agitation  is not confined to Socialists.   At buBseldorf the
antl Socialist Christian-National Trade
unions  have  passed  a  resolution  demanding   imperial   unemployment   insurance.    The Oerman    Inter-Munlci-
| pal council   passed  a  similar  resolution.
The Berlin Trade Union commission
lately issued rigures showing that of
.the 806,000 members of forty-six unions which furnished statistics, 86,000,
or 8.1! per cent., were workings. If as
high a percentage obtains among all
the ono million Berlin1, worktera of
both aexea. the total of unemployed
would I ��� 68,000. The Berlin Metal
Worker.' union report 6,122 unemployed; the wood workers 4,255;
members of the different building
I trades, 2,898. The German building
'trades always suffered badly in winter, but In the present winter they
have  suffered  worse than  usual.
The Vorwaerts clainiB tbat the industrial reserve army, is, in fact, increasing. If that Is so, two factors
have combined to create the present
serious unemployment crisis. These
factors atp. firstly, the increase in
the unemployed reserve army which
lio'-s on from year to year, independt-
ly of the condition of trade; and see-
londly, the fact that thla year is mark-
; edly a depression year
The tax on amusements imposed on
the Berlin music halls and cinematograph theatres seems doomed to
failure. It Is found to have the ef-
fed of severely curtailing the receipts of thoBe places of entertain-
' in nt. All efforts to paaa the tax on
' to the- vipters have failed, and if the
i ix Id maintained nothing but faila-e
tacei a number of houses of amnse-

and Ita directors talked of closing Its
doors. Now, however, lhey appear to
be sanguine that the tax will either
be reduced or abolished, for they have
made the following announcement:
"'1 be directors have now decided
not to charge any tax to the public
lng the week-day performances.
This i.s done in anticipation that the
city authorities muet recognize that

NO STEPPING ASIDE
fOR HIS VENUS
Spouse   of   Oregon    Want   Ad.    Wife
Hunter  Isn't Going to  Let
Him   Go   Easily.
Kuterprise,  Ore.,  Dec.  24.--Francis
M. Ohormley, who gained much nolor-
| iety by advertising in the press for a
: wife several weeks ago, wiii not marry
| the "veritable Venus" he discovered
|in  Spokane "in  about three weeks,"
as he stated to a newspaper reporter.
���Mr. Ohormley ��il lhave a hard fight
In-fore be is free to marry anybody,
for his wife has started a sensational
suit against him inthe Walolwa county  court.    Mb  son-in-law  is  attorney
: for Mrs. Ohormley.
The wife of tbe Troy school teacher
j who clainiB to have bad more than 40
. applicants  for  his  hand  in  marriage
! while in Spokane charges that instead
I of "having been a widower for many
[years," as Mr. Ghormley is quotej as
! saying be was when in Spokane, he is
not a widower at all, but a thoroughly
married    man and the lather of nine
grown children.
Separated in August.
Mrs. Ghormley states that she and
Mr.  Ghormley lived  together as htt_-
iband and wife until August 9, Wi:i.
when tbey sold their homestead and,
I having no place to live, .in*,   went to
Portland to live with a married daughter until Mr. Ohormley conld Mud a
home for her. Tbat instead of trying to rind a home he advertised in
the papers for a wife and visited various places to inspect- the "physical
charms" of the many applicants. That
after hiB visit to Spokane, where he
found a "ver'Uabl? Venus" whom ho
announced he would marry within
three weeks, "as soon og he transacted some business in Oregon-." he telephoned to Mrs. Ghormley at Portland
to meet him In Walla Walla and promised "to behave himself and be a true
husband to her." That she went to
Walla Walla, "relying on the promise
made hy UAephone" and met Mr.
Ghormley at the home of a married
daughter and that they resumed marital relation and lived together as man
and wife for one day.
Step Aside?.   No.
Then, Mrs. Ghormley says, her husband told her of the charms iie bad
met at, Spokane and told ber thai if
f'.is woman came to Walla Walla tii
marry him. as she had promised to
do, that she (Mra. Ghormley I wou'd
"have to su p aalda."
The charges of Mrs. Ghornil-'T are
contained In several typewritten pages
filed by her son-in-law, C. K. Cochran,
of Portland, who Is her attorney. Mrs.
Ohormley, who is 88 years old and al-
legt 'hut. Mr. Ghormley is the si mo
age. filed the charges In an answer
to in r husband's suit for divorce wiucli
he recently  began  here.     Sbe a?V.s a
divorce, $2110 as maintenance and $1.-
000 from the proceeds of the paie cf
their homestead. She alleges that the
homestead -was sold for $4.0"0 without any cash payment and that her
husband took a mortgage on the land
for |8,000 and gave her an unsecured
note for $1,000 as* her share. Sho
claims that the homestead wa.*. obtained by her, as she had lived upon
it and compiled with the requirements of the law while her husband
followed his vocation of teacher in
various schools.
The "veritable Venus" whom Mr.
Ghormley met in Spokane anil announced that he would marry is mentioned half a dozen times in th. an-
BWer and cross-complaint.

London, Dec. 24.���Teaclmra of the
tango are dancing tht-mselvf's Into affluence. This extraordinary dancing
ania that has burst on Condon without warning; or reason is ri sponsible
for liftin certain men and women
trom obscurity and a modest livelihood hue. incomes of 176,080 a year.
In fact the tanro craze in London is
a better paying institution than is
baseball in America.
The rush to become tango teachers
is like a rush to a suddenly discovered gold field. Bank clerks, comedians,
musicians, chorus girls, students are
some ot the diverse types of gold-
teekers suddenly brought together
into this new profession, which has
heen created by the imilativ eness ot
crowds;.
Society "discovered" the tango yeara
after its firm establishment as a popular dance in other parts of the
world, lt raged in Paris three years
ago and has been an institution in
South America for a generation, but
Lodon Is now smitten with it as by
an epidemic, and will shortly dance
itself tired ct" the very name of it.
If you walk down Shaftesbury avenue any afternoon you will see a long
line of women waiting eagerly at a
certain theatre in the hope of having
an Interview with two tango experts
who pause there for a few minutes, ln
their whirlwind round of "tango" teas,
to give one or two dances on the stage.
Every woman wants to book them
for a private exhibition at her bouse
or to arrange for lessons.
If every day had twice twentjr-four
hours tbls tango-tired couple could
not fulfil all tbe engagements offered
them, nor dance at half the houses
wbera cheques of from ten to twenty
guineas can be had In change for m
fifteen-minute visit They practically
live in a motor-car, dashing from a
hotel to a matinee tea, and then to
two or three crowded West End mansions, and then to a couple of dinner
engagements, and tben to aome of Htm
restaurants tor sapper.
They have no Ume to eat, and very
little time to aleap. They make a flying trip to a aeaslde town, dance for ,
an hour and receive $280. In one day
they "tango in a doaen different
parte of London. Their services are
In demand from the luncheon hiue'un-

MRS. TV'IM, Cily Manager.
(..85)       237 Six'.h Street.
There is a man who makes shoes for children���
and sells them to stores all over Canada
But he is only just learning how people buy.
It was this way: His wife ��� let us call her Mrs.
Brown ���'phoned to him and asked him to buy some
underwear for little Brown.
Picture Brown now among thc throng of mothers at
the " Children's Underwear" counter. He asks for
* Underwear for a child (if six. He looks it over helplessly. What on earth does he know about Children's
Underwear? For lack of anything better to say he
asks: "Is this good quality?" The answer is short
and quite conclusive: "It's Blank's"���naming a well-
advertised line. That short word says everything.
Brown pays his money and goes home, quite satisfied
with his purchase.
Now what bothers Brown ��� a manufacturer of shoes,
is this:   How would it affect thc purchase of a child's
shoes if the  salesman said   "They're Brown's"?
Nubody knows Brown's shoes. Brown doesn't advertise.
The name Brown signifies nothing when used in connection with children's shoes. Thc salesman must use all his
-.icrsuasive wiles to induce people to buy them.
Thc point is���If thc name Iirown was as synonomous with Children's
Shoes as "Blank's"'is with Underwear, wouldn't Brown sell more shoes
with less effort?

Dlete recasting of the finances of the
b "iie rule bill for the remaining
twenty-eight counties.
That, of course, would mean an en-
tlreiv mw bill. True, its finance is (
Hi leaat palatable feature fur all
lriihiirn. but her. John Hull would
bare naw obieotione to raise from
th" British  standpoint.
Moreover, the Protestants In the excluded Ulster counties would not alone
ha Injured, but those throughout tbe
red of Ireland, who look to Secure
representation for their Interests In
an Irish parliament from the members returned for I'lster.
Such n "srttlement." therefore
would the the most unsettling seoclfic
ever applied to any political problem,
it   would   be  odious   to   the   excluded
Protastanta.   It would be haterui to
every Catholic. It would burden the
Pntrstnnts In the excluded counties
with a bitter Catholic question, und
would  throw   all  Ireland  Into unrest
Agavejtheai without knowing it. Ta- mating of tbe sparrows may be observed
at any time between March and June.
That sudden, fierce outburst of chattering which most ef us think mistakenly is the prelude to a fight is
really a courtship conducted in sparrow style.
"The cocks surround a lady sparrow, each crying out shrilly his own
excellences and tbe shocking demerits
of the others. Tlie lady accepts all
this homage by peckin. furiously at
all the excited Euiiors, Uut eventually
she rnako_ her choice and hies off
with one, and they live happily together for the rest of the season.
"The cormorant also has a most
interesting way with him. When he
is 'in love' he lie: down and, twisting
his neek round, lays it flat along his
back. And if Mi's Cormorant is
touched, aa sh�� should be. by this display of misery an ! devotion, she rent-
iy caresses with her bill the feathers
ol Mr. Cormorant at the point where
the neck curves over on I the body,
aud  all   Is well."

How often will lh" plant flower?"
"We do not know hom often it will
flower,  this  is the first time  it  has
flowered  .ince  broughl    to    Ottawa.
The only other known specimens are
In Washington and tluy flowered recently  one year after the other."
"Will this bloom hurt the plant?"
"Yes." said  Mr.  Davis, "from  what
we   can   learn   of   the   plant   we   expect it to collapse."
"Will the bloom last long?"
"The flowers will likely last a werk [
Jiul  then  w�� expect  to sec it   wither:
away and die."
"Well, will that mean the loss of the'
plant altogether?" atked the reporter, j
"No,  It Is likely that tliere will be
i  st 11  on  either the slalk or under
'he   leaves,   and   that   will   mean   the;
-tarting   of  another   plant."
The Agava Attenuate la on -exhibition ln the government greenhouse at
the head of Bank street on Wellington
Ftreet. It Is situated quite near the
door and  reaches almoet to the ceil-
It has a stalk 9 feet and 6 Inches
high. The individual blooms are too
numerous to count and run about a
foot along the stalk about the centre.
They are of a greenish yellow color
with yellow anthers.
The plant towers high above all the
rest in Its vicinity, and Is so striking that it attracts and holds the attention of a person when he enters
they greenhouse. The base of tbe
plant is something like the cadtus
plant. Half way up th? stalk the
flowers start and for about a foot
they are like a girdle around It. The
top half of tho stalk is something like
a thin evergreen spruce.
Fatter Last Month.
The growth of the stalk has been
very slow, but faster within the past
"lottth. From the time it was put ln
there It had only grown about about
live feet up till a month ago, when It
sturted to grow'faster. The last four
'eet appeared during the past month.
It was also just about a month ago
that the plant showed signs of blooming nnd was more carefully watched.
The gardeners In the government
*tr:enhouses don't expect to witness
such another rare exhibition In thetr
ItfB time.
"It's the chance of a lifetime," said
Mr. Davis this morning, "to Bee thla
ilant now. We hsve other rare plants
here, but nothing like this."
Mr. Davis and other of his fellow
gardeners have visited aome of the
'���irvest botanical gardens and green-
''-uses in America, and the only other
Mac? where they saw a duplicate of
Ihe rarity they have was in Washing-
ten  D. C.

Ilook Evolution.
"Boo''S" have rrcigressed from
the days when they were only wooden rods or bits of bark. For the
derivation which ronnecls "book"
directly wilh "beech." both having
been "boo" in Anglo-Saxon, is the
favorite one. "Bucbstaben,' the
Herman woril for letlors of the alphabet, means literally "beech
slaves." Many book words go back
to such vegetable origin. The Latin
"Uber," a book, whence comes our
"library," was properly the inner
bark or rind of a tree, especially of
papyrus. The Greek "biblon."
whence "Bible" and "bibliophile,"
meant much the same thing. A
"codex" was a Mock of wood,

Whether a dog ia the best friend
of man cannot be answered by me,

become domesticated the dog has
been shown to be the only one that
never knows the difference of caste,
class, wealth or habitation. Tbe

to the wasted toiler in the humblest
