the blaze which early today destroyed
a tig grain elevator owned hy the
Armour Grain company, 'twenty minutes after the lire was discovered and
when it was believed to be under

Hotel at Banff.
Calgary, Feb. 8.��� A disastrous (ire
in Banff Saturday afternoon resulted
in the partial destruction of the
King Edward hotel and the burning
of the delux  moving  picture theatre,
the electrical shop of C. Kriesen and
the tailoring establishment of J. D.
Anderson. The total loss Is estimated
at  $2o,O0u.
But for the failure of the water service   during   the  first   Iii   minutes  of
i the fire the conflagration  might  have
I b> en checked with    but    small    loss.
i The  hydrants   were  frozen  and  valuable  time  was  lost   in   thawing  tbem

j complished and the pressure was suf
ficieiii to retard the progress of the

same block were practically in asheg

to saving the new  brick addition of

���Chicago, Feb. 8,-Zero weather���
Ihe first of the year here���brought one
death and suffering to thousands of
poor here today, The cold wave arrived last night and at 8 o'clock this
morning the thermometer registered
zero. At 5 o'clock 7 degrees below
were marked, and the mercury since
then  has hovered around zero.
Seventy-five fires, most of them resulting from over-heated stoves and
furnaces, kept the fire department on
the move all day. Tonight the department was badly crippled, many of its
members suffering frozen hands ami
feet.    Two   Episcopal   churches   were
I damaged by fires. A Jewish charitable
organization gave meals to more than
i 1000    persons.      Other   organizations
were busy among the lodging houses
and among the poorer districts.
At the hospitals,    particularly    the
, Cook county hospital, there were con-
j stant appeals for help. Adam Zuneski,
I a teamster, froze his hands so badly
j that in removing his glove his index
finger snapped off.
Only one death due to the cold was
reported to the police. Twenty-six
hundred men were cared for tonight
in the municipal lodging houses and
as many more were turned away, the
police said.

Rculette Wheel, Faro Bank and Crap
Table  Make  Huge Bonfire at
Baker, Ore.
Maker. Ore., Feb. 8. Gambling outfits taken by Colonel Dawson and his
militia men from Copperfield and
Huntington last month went ln smoke
today, in accordance with orders of
Governor West. A huge bonfire, built
on the edge of the city, was lighted
and every roulette wheel, faro bank
nnd crap table captured from the saloons of the two towns In the eastern
edge of Baker county, was plied on
this bonfire.
There wns no resistance on the part
of the attorneys for the Copperfield
saloon men, in fact they did not even
appear on the scene and paid not a
whit of attention to the movements of
Governor West.
Adam Schortgon, who has been a
special agent for Governor West for
several months, did the work.
He did not destroy the liquor taken
fiom the Copperfield saloons, but
turned it over, to a local transfer house

Government Commandeers Whole Fuel
Supply cf Vera Cruz to Operate
London, Feb. 8-Admiral Von
Tirpitz, German naval minister, makes tho interesting
confession that his refusal to
entertain Mr. Churchill's suggestion of "naval holiday" Is
mainly due to an "industrial
reason." England, he sayB,
having so much work abroad
could cease building for the
British navy without demoralizing her labor conditions, the
German yards, on the other
hand, would bo compelled to
shut down during a naval holiday.
Vera Crux, Feb, 8.���The straits to
which tbe Mexican government is reduced for coe.l with which to continue
the operation of the National railway
lines is shown by the commandeering
today of virtually the whole fuel oil
supply of Vera Cruz, thus threatening
the speedy suspension of nil traffic
between this city and the capital.
The government sent last night a
train of 18 oil cars with a capacity of
12,000 gallons each to Vera Cruz. Today an officer at the head of a squad
of troops made a formal demand on
the agent of the Aguila company to
surrender all oil tn Its possession. The
agent replied the oil had been sold to
the Mexican railway, which is a British corporation and was told it waB
immaterial to whom the oil belonged.
There now remains in Vera Cruz
only a bIx days' supply of oil for the
operation of the Mexican and Inter-
Oceanlc railway and there ts no prospect of recelvl i-g more oil from Tampico. Under the circumstances It Is
believed It will be Impossible to .maintain communication with Mexico City
beyond the end of the week except
In the case of trains for government
It Is asserted that the next move
of the Mexican government will be to
seize the locomotives and rolling stock
of tho Mexican railway to replace the
locomotives and cars recently destroyed In the north, it Is possible quickly
to transform oil burning locomotives
into coal burners, but there ls virtually no coal In the country.
It Is reported, apparently on the
best authority, that a decree has 'been
prepared and only awaits the president's signature, doubling the duties
on all Imports from the United States.

The announcement that General
Villa would protect Spanish subjects
in his invasion of Torreon brought relief to officials here, who had been
swamped with petitions on behalf of
the threatened Spaniards. Urgent

Tho inauguration of the Canadian parcels post service, which will take place tor/Sorrow when the postmaster
general will send to the governor-general an appropriate
gift by the hands of a mail carrier, will prove in the hands
of the people of the Dominion an effective weapon to use
against the high cost of living. While the new Canadian
parcels post regulations will permit only packages up to
eleven pounds in weight, still the concession to the convenience oi the public will he appreciated and undoubtedly
will be widely used.
Across the border, where much heavier matter is carried by the parcels post service, it has been found that
hundreds of thousands of dollars are saved from the
monthly payments that formerly went into the coffers of
the express companies and it is to be expected that similar
conditions will obtain in Canada when the system gets into
good running order.

Some U. S. politicians think the price of Britain's
friendship is high, particularly in the matter of the Panama canal tolls. American friendship came high a few
years ago in the Portland canal agreement.  Tit-for-tat.
When the court didn't seem inclined to swallow the
evidence for the defence in the trial of a young man of
Portland on a bogus cheque charge, the prisoner did the

Most of us remember the wonders
that were performed with liquid air a
few   years   ago,   and   confident   were
the prophecies that by its use modern
life might lie revolutionized In many
respects,    Yet    what,    use   Is    being
made of liquid air today?   Ii is a wonder, but  where does it enter into the
life of the average man?    What dis-
uase does it  cure, what labor does It
save, what effect lias it upon the high
cost of living?    Looking back we realize  now  that   liquid  air  is   wonderful
juRt like a performing dog is wonderful,  but  that  its  use, like the  use of

it is as wonderful as water or air. We

Twelve Years ot Radium.
It is bping claimed by some doctors
iu Toronto and elsewhere that radium
cures cancer.     By other doctors it is
declared to be valueless for this purpose, and  even  dangerous.     Probably
no medical man has had a longer experience of radium as a  therapeutic
agent   than   Dr.   Thomas   Edwin   Eldridge, of Philadelphia, who  was the
first doctor  in   the  United   Slates  to
import radium from the Cruies,    He
has  tho radium  yet.  for  tin*   remark
able thing about radium is that if you
have it once and It is not lost or stolen you will always have it. Vou cannot wear it out or lessen u* power Inconstant use.    In 1903, when Dr, Eld-
ridge  received   his  little  tube of  ra
dlum, it  was giving off heat     It  is

dlum on scores, If not upon hundreds,
of patients, and  has made every experiment with It that he thought likely to result  in  new discoveries.    He
^inows also what other doctors and
scientists have done with  radium.
Radium and Cancer,

and t'.*..��� experience of others be sees
no   reason   to   believe  that   radium   is
a  cure   for  cancer,     lie  has   seen   it
used and has seen it fail, and Dr. Eldridge dees nol believe that radium will

"As the blood is, so is t'.ie man;
He is just as weak, juat as strong.
The  Myrtery of  Radium.
Radium may have some affect, upon
the blood, but it  is hardly reasonable
' to snppeise that it has, and a consideration of what radium is will make
this  clear.    As a  matter of  fact   we
do not know  what, il  is.    It  Is some
times spoken of as a mineral, bul II
has   never   been   secured   in   metallic
form, the* usual form being a chlortdle
i or  a   bromide,    It   looks   something
! like salt,  and  is always contained  iu
a'glass tube, which in lurn is confined In a leaden casket, that keeps the
���Vat in, and prevents the radium exercising  a   perhaps   beneficial   effect
1 upon anyone in the neighborhood. The
peculiarity about   radium  Is  its  temperature.    It   is  always  from   two  to
: five   degrees   warmer  than   its   sur-
r undlngs.    It gives off heat, sufficient Indeed  to  melt more than  Its

to detect any chemical change in  the

It is reported tiiat an eruption occurred at two o'clock on Tuesday
morning on Takakuma-yama, a hill
not hitherto regarded as volcanic, and
situated several miles from Sakura-
iima on the eastern side of Kakoshima
bay. The villages at the foot of the
hill were endanger. No accurate information is available, however, owing  to  lack  of communication.
An eruption also occurred at Mount j F^Vnce'^of

Black smoke rose to a great height
and the rumbling of the mountain
was heard many miles away.. Some

The Care of Porch Floors.
The   best   way   for   cleaning   porch
floors In the fall or early winter Is a
question that taxes the patience of mis*
tress and maid alike.    Mistress Insists,1
and maid objects.    Each Is right.
Fortunately there is a way to clean
floors that will solve Ihls problem ol
the mistress nnd maid to the satisfaction of each.    Make a strong solution
of soap and very hot water.   Have the!
water nt a temperature of nt least ISO
degrees I*\    Hot water in the fall oi
winter is necessary because cold watet
freezes   and   produces   ley   steps   and'
floors.    Then with the aid of n good,
mop go over the porch floor rapidly. |
Use plenty of hot water nnd wipe the
floor well.    Go over it quickly.    The
hot suds will take up the dirt.    Start
nt the farther end of the porch  and
back  up  toward   the steps  so  ns  to
avoid tracking up the cleaned floor.
A good mop wringer will not only
save time, but will save tbe bands,
temper and energy. It will cause n
more even distribution of the moisture
and allow scalding water, which Is so
desirable because more cleansing, to
be more freely used.

Debate in House on
New Rules for Bisiey Meet
The dl bate on the dispute between
tin* National Rifle association of
Great Britain and those responsible
for Bi ailing of the Bisiey team io
England ln the house on Saturday
brought out an Interesting discussion.
The following wen* the speeches of
those wbo took pari in the debate Including the minister of militia, the
results of which were' publish* d in
The .News on Saturday:
The question was raised by Mr.
MacDonald, I'ietoii. who refi rn 1 to
the report that tht men who had won
their places in the 1). R. A. competitions laBt year might not go across
the Atlantic this year. Mr. MacDonald said that the interest evoked In
rifle shooting in this country had
been very ureal and Canadians would
like to see the past successes of their
team maintained.
The N. It. A. was not for Great
Britain alone, but for the dominions
ns well, yet in tbe past there had
been what he termed "pin pricks" at
ihe  riflemen  of    Canada    using    the
Ross rifle, the national weapon. In
the past this hud brought vigorous action by the Canadian authorities and
had resulted In the recognition by the
N- It. A. of the right to use the Roeis .
rifle  in  competitions.
The chief question at issue was con-
cerned   with   the  use  of the  aperture i
sight.   This had been adopted in Canada, was to become a part of the new
British  rifle,  not  yet  issued,  and  its
use In the United Stales was also permanent.    But in Kngland recently the
war office bad intimated to the N. R.
A.   that  in  certain   competitions,    the
king's prize for example, the aperture
sight could  not  be  used.    What was
to  be  the attitude of  the    Canadian
militia department ?   Were Canadians
to be compelled to compete under adverse conditions after being    trained
with  this weapon or  would  the minister  stand  by  the  rifle  which    had
been proven complete and satisfactory
in every particular.
Free to Compete.
Hon. Sam Hughes in reply said tha'

������'., the taol that In ret ent year Greal
Britain bas made but little progress
in the developmenl ot her national
army. In Canada the Boss rifle had
been produced. The Canadians had
compiie.i viih the British rifle in

Colon, i Hughi s went on to Bay that
while the N. R, A. was only Informally apart of the war office, it. was
tnon or less al the mercy of the
military authorities. The war office
��� be said, had always adopted fads, and
their latest was a Held Bervlce target, a tad which is dying out. Tht
war office had coerced the X. R, A.
Into using them, and had made regulation providing that no rifles but
such as ar equipped with open sights
ean be used ai many of the big matches at Bisiey, including the contest
I'.r the King's prize. The men who
framed this regulation, he said, must
know that It means that we must,
either use th? obsolete Lee-Enfield
rifle or abandon the field. "So far
as I am concerned, no volunteer will
leave these shores under any such
handicap" he said.
Colonel Hughes went on to tell the
house that for four years the British
i war office had been trying to get out
an improved rifle. He hud learned
the details of this rifle when in Washington and also In Germany, but when
he went to lhe war office he was referred to som.' subordinate official,
i declined to go around to any back
door to get. this information," said
the minister.
He next read from reports from the
war office, statements admitting that
the aperature* sight is superior to the
open sight. One point of superiority
is that the old eve is relieved of the
blur caused by the triple alignment
of forward and back sight and can
locate the target just as quickly as
the young eye.

Nowadays, the building of men-of-

complicated business, involving the
: employment of a powerful and costly
plant, and thousands of highly-trained artificers, is naturally centralized

There is a man who ma.kes shoes for children-
and sells them to stores all over Canada
But he is only just teaming 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 the throng of mothers at
the "Children's Underwear" counter. He asks for
Underwear for a child of 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 the purchase of a child's
shoes if the  salesman said  " They're Brown's" ?
Nobody knows Brown's shoes. Brown doesn't advertise.
The name Brown signifies nothing when used in connection with children's shoes. The salesman must use all hia
persuasive wiles to induce people to buy them.
~ZJ. " , ���       if  th�� mme Brown was as synonomous with Children's
Shoes^^'Blank's" fs SUnderwear, wouldn't Brown sell more shoes
with less effort? . _

In  connection  with    the   offer   tr, I
I Mrs.  Scott   of   rooms    in    Hampton j
| Court Palace, the old stories of the j
! palace ghost have been  widely   and j
I erroneously    repeated.      Only    one !
I room Is said to be haunted, the room j
in   which   Jane   Seymour   died   after
the  birth  cf  Edward VI.     She   was j
neglected  by    her   nurse,   and   the i
ghost of  tbe  nurse  appears  to any i
other nurse in the room at the lime
of the birth   of a   child,   and   with I
fatal results to the child.    Princess j
Frederlca of Hanover lost her baby
at Hampton Court, and some histor- j
lans believe it was fear of the midwife ghost that caused Prince Frederick, the father of George III.,   to
hurry his wife away from Hampton
Court to St. James' Palace   for   her
accouchement���not,  as  is   generally
supposed,   a   Hanoverian   desire   to

Welch  Had  Him.
Everybody  knows what n "welch
er" Is, but not one man in a thousand   Is aware of  the  origin  of   the
word.    More than a generation r.go
there lived  tn  London,  on  bis own
wits and  tbe   credulity   of   his   acquaintance, a mixture of Sir Affable
Hawk and Mr. Micawber.    His name |
was   David   Welch.    He   was,   as   a j
classical writer once said, "good at I
all things, but mostly at a bet."
But among the things at which he
was good was not. paying, for be
never paid. As each fresh victim
cropped up his sympathizing "pal"
would ask him: "What now���
what's the matter?" The answer
Invariably was: "Welch has had
me." This state of things became
chronic, until at last, whenever a
man bad a long face, it was said
that he must have been "Welch'd."
Mixed Metaphor.
Sir Robert Ball, the famous
astronomer, who Iut3 just died, was
rather fond of telling the story of a
���orrcspondent who wrote to blu saying that, although be was a grocer's
iBsistant, his great ambition wits to
become an astronomer. But he got
his Ideas somewhat mixed, lor this
was one of his sentences; "My
mind finds no rest for tho sole of
her foot save on one t,t tho heavenly-
bod les."

Know the Kind of Coal You Are Using
and Be Safe.
Coal li one of the most variable of
products.    Unfortunately there Is nn
yet no trademnrked brand for the consumer to rely on so be may know what
he Is getting.   If a package of a trade-
marked gelatin is worthless you can
get your money bach from the dealer.
But if you buy n ton of poor coal yon
will only have to wait until  It is all |
burned out.   There are as many kinds |
of coal ns there are places  where it
is  burned, so  many confusing names :
have entered in. and what is "pea conl" ,
In one locality Is not sure to be tbe
same elsewhere.    First tind out what
coal, size aud amount, etc., your par- j
tlcular boiler or furnace requires. Then
buy tbat kind of the most reputable
denier.   It may be stove coal, pea conl,!
I nut, etc., but lirst find out what tbe ;
; manufacturer of your furnace or stove
i says would be the best to use with his
I make of stove beforo you buy the fuel.

The ex-governor escaped, ami in his
stead an inoffensive citizen was shot
A serious riot eiisiu d at the conclusion of a meeting of the partisans
of Antonlon Maura, the' former premier, which was addressed by Senor
Ossorio-Callardo. The former governor of Barcelona is an Intimate friend
of Mama's, but is unpopular because
of the part he took In quelling the
rioting in Barcelona, where martial
law was proclaimed because of a general strike.
A mob gathered outside Ihe bulld-
llig. and iu spile of repeated charges
of police, they forced their way to
an automobile in which it wa3 supposed the ex-governor was riding. A
volley of revolver shots was tired
into the machine, and when the body
of the victim was taken out it was

the authority of the court to take

Shot Plum Pudding In Cannon.
When the Boers advanced on Ladysmith in the Transvaal war the late
Melton Prior was one of ihe twenty
newspaper correspondents who threw
in their lot with the British army, instead of making the hurried retreat
that was still possible. In his book,
' Campaigns of a War Correspondent," be tells many interesting incidents of the siege.
The enemy succeeded in plating
thirty-two guns on the heights above
the town, and kept up such an incessant lire that the troops and civilians
were soon engaged in digging bomb-
proof shelters.
In spite of the havoc that these
cannon worked, tht soldiers soon
grew accustomed to the shelling.

the bills, ���watching the game. Then,
when It was all over, the firing started afresh.
But this was not the only courtesy
the enemy showed. On Christinas
Day they saluted the happy morn by
salvos of shells. The first two that
fell Into the camps of the Carbineers
and tbe Imperial Light Horse did not
burst. When the shells were picked

had been inserted In place of the

Slinkespenre's Name.
It has often been a puzzle to students of Shakespeare why his name
is spelled in so many different ways.
Shakespeare himself is said to have
s! ned his name on different occasions
"Shakspeare" and ' Shakespere," and
learned disquisitions have been written to prove which is the proper
spelling. None perhaps was moro
amusing thnn the "weather" reason
given in 1851 by Alberl Smith, who
averred that be had found it in the
Harleian manuscript, it was as follows:
How dyd Shakspeare spoil hys name?
Ye weatherre mayde ye change, we
So write it as ye please;
When ye sonne* shone lie  mayde
When wette 'e took hys E'es.

Into the black hole of Calcutta during

Like a number of other eminent
soldiers, he was not blessed with too
sweet a temper, and when bis old
mother was told that the prisoners in
the black hole wero tied together her
only comment was:

If Vancouver and Victoria Break Even
and Westminster Wins Remaining Games.
Tin* brilliant showing made by the
New Westminster hockey team during the past few weeks is exciting unusual interest among the fans in this
province, more so than at any other
period during the existence of hockey
on tl*.-' coast. Standing at the foot
of tin* league ladder with a record
conHid< red by all lo mean third place'

ended, the koyals have fought their
way to a position whereby they are
b< rlously threatening the other two
clubs  and  have  a   possible  chalice  of
gaining the coast championship.
Must Win Next Three.
Westminster has three more games

away from hc.m.*. They must capture
all three games lo win Die championship, on.* of which they should per
form at Queen's park arena Friday

games and al the present clip they

why they should not lake nil three,'

Vancouver play in Victoria tomorrow
night witli chances of the Senators
taking the game following the showing made by the Terminals during the

Every member of the Westminster
team Is in the best of shape for the
coining struggles. Several hard bumps
Were received in the Vancouver game
last Friday but these have been attended to and for tiie rest of Cue week
the players will take things easy. The

An  I inbleii) of cheer to Sivnc and
of III Omen to Others,
The good old custom of banging
the mistletoe from the celling at tbe
Christmas festivities is said to bave
its origin In the Idea that since tho
plant did not have Its roots In tbe
ground no part of it should ever be
permitted  to touch  tbe earth.
Among the Saxons the fact tbat
mistletoe was suspended from thi
roof of a dwelling Intii ated to the
wayfarer that tbe hospitality of the
house was at his disposal, and beneath Its branches friend and stranger, vassal and lord, gathered together In comradeship and good cheer.
The religious aspect of the inUtle-
toe tradition, which had its origin In
the Druidical rites and ie gathering
of It by the Archdruid with his golden sickle, merged later Into a purely
social symbol, and the idea of simple liospitabilty developed into one of
merrymaking and a somewhat riotous
The kiss of the ScaJdlnavlan go.'.-
dess expanded Into the custom of a
kiss given for every berry that grew
on the bough. Small wonder that, In
spite of the mistletoe having originally existed In the cor of sanctity, the
church came to regard It ae; an entirely pagan symbol and refused to allow
It to participate with tbe holly and
thq evergreen In the Yuletide decorations.
There is an ancient belief that the
mistletoe was the tree from which
the Holy Cross was uewn and that
after this was made tbe plant withered and ever afterward became a
mere parasite growth, clinging for
suprort to other and sturdier trees.
Other stories, however, credit it
wltb divine gifts In the healing of
disease am tbe expulsion of evil
Itam, the high priest of the Celts,
received In a dream the intimation
that by means of tbe plant he would
be enabled to si vc his people from
the plague which was decimating
thorn. To celebrale their delivery he
instituted tbe Feast of Noel (new
health), a midwinter holiday which
ha3 come to be considered coincident
with the new y ar.
In many parts of the United Kingdom the silver berries and the gray-
green leaves o. the mistletoe are looked upon as anything tut an emblem
of good cheer; on tbe contrary, the
plant is regarded with dread as being
tbe brlnger of ill luck and the sign
of ill omen. T'.ls suoirsti ion exis..;
both in UevonLhire i nd in Ireland,
and, strange to say, In neither of
these places does the plant tlou.ish.

strangest in the long record of   the
university.     To    mark   their   disapproval of the sentence meted out by
the    Senate   to   one   of   the   undergraduates for disorderly  conduct at
a previous function  the students decided to boycott the ceremony.    Pickets were posted at all the cloisters
to ensure that no student other than
the graduands would attend.   About
140  graduand3 were  "capped."   and
not a single   student    was   present,

Canadiens Win   Easily.
Montreal, Feb. 8,- While the Wanderers were beating Oltawas at Ottawa,
the Canadiens were making a show of
Torontos in their scheduled National
hockey fixture Saturday night, beating them by a score of 9-3, The game
developed Into more or less of a burlesque, the Torontos being so completely outplayed that they did not
score until Manager Marshall sent out
a team composed of substitutes in the
final period. Cameron, the star of
the Toronto defence, wns so closely
Checked that he never got going. The
play was almost too one-sided to be
rough, although numerous minor penalties were handed out and Wilson
drew a major for deliberately striking

When an advertiser advertises lve wants to re.ach the people.
I'eitronage is needed to make a business a success. In having a
name and business always before the public, or the name of a specially
named product, buyers have it in mind when that kind of a thing
is wanted. If the ad. is in a handy place, only a moment is needed
to refer to it.
What better medium is there than the Telephone Directory? An
advertiser wants circulation, and he gets it. Thirty-one thousand directories are issued, and they go into every home that does considerable buying between Agassiz and the Gulf of Georgia. Every part
of the district is covered.
An advertiser apreclates a medium that is in constant use. The
directory is used an average of eight times per subscriber per day,
or over 200,000 times every twenty-four iieurs. These figures are not
guessed at but are'ascertained by actual count each month. More-
over, the directory is never .discarded. It is referred to unceasingly
and man, woman and child soon gets familiar with the names prominently  displayed therein.
An advertiser wants to make 3tHtt he Is reaching ihepeople he
wains. Who is there who does not coriftul?���s"'���Wewone directory

consecutive plages on the top or bottom, or if the name* of u epc-cia!

If you have something to market, if you want to reach al! the
people all the time, take a look at the directory. It is a particularly
good medium for most purposes, and very probably it will be just
what you want.

however, because aperature sights
could be provided for tin* Lee-Enfield
rifle-, lie repeated that the only object, of the ruling is to exclude tbe
licss rifle from Bisiey or to force all
Canadians to use an open sight. "Why
should Canadian volunteers bow to
such n ruling lie asked, continuing,
������ihe aperature sight is now a part
and parcel of the Ross rif! and 1
pn pose to stick to it."
Endorses Hughce*.' otartd.
.Mi*. Carvell, Carleton, congratulated ilu* minister on the stand In* had
taken, ln regard to the Ross rifle
Colonel Hughes hud made no Changs
of front in years, lie had stood by
the rifle whi n it had taken consider-
aide courage to do so. in the end
li" would win out because he was in
lite right, .Mr. Carvell said that while
he did ii, i approve of tii.* minister's
lar-;,* expenditures, he did approve
i ' i ;���* ndlng mon \ to tt a 'i the young
men to shoot. Drill and training are
useful. Inn a soldier ho has not
been taught how lo handle a rifle is
a useless thing in tine* of weir. He
thought the minister had been a little magnanimous when lie offered to
loan Ross rifles lo the N. R, A. "If
we have the Inst rifle, we ought to
be allowed to use and In win with
ii." In* declared.
In Active Service.
Major Sam Sliarpe, North Ontario,
wanted to know if the aperture Bight
belonging to the Ross rifle would be
of utility in active service. There
was a difference of opinion as to
this. It had been slated thai while
ilie American aperture sight is a
good sight n i- active service, the lies,
rifle sight is not. Ile quoted Sergt,
Russell, the well known Canadian
shot, as stating in an Interview 'hat
lie would be willing lo use the Lee-
Enfield rifle at Bisiey. Tin* long
Ross rifle is the better match rifle,
lie saiel, and he would not prefer to
have this advantage. Sergt. Russell
bad added that the Ross rifle sight
is not  practical fcr active service,
Major Sbarpe was inclined to think
that the N. R. A. regulations were
merely designed to prove nt a peep
sight being used at Bisiey which
could not be used in actual service.
If thai were so, the regulations were
not unreasonable and he would be
sorry lo se,. as a result the abandonment of the annual trip of the Canadian riflemen to Bisiey.
Some Questions
Dr, Clarke, or Red Deer, while ad*
mit! ng that the discussion was out
of liis latitude, said he had a couple
of questions to put to the minister,
Dr. Clark asked (1) Does the war
office admit that the Ross rifle is
the best, and (2) Does the war office issue these regulations in an arbitrary manner or do they give any
reason   for   it.
Colonel Hughes in reply said 'hat
tin* war effice recognized thai tin*
Ross rifle had won first place in all
competitions, They had recognized
the Ross  rifle by declaring their own
New   York,   Fell.   S.-Tle;tr Admiral
' French E. Chadwick, retired, formerly president of the naval  war college
I at Newport, R. I., writing in the cur-
t'C'iL number of Hie Educational Review, dec-lares Unit women tutelage
in America has resulted iu "feminized
i emotional, illogical  manhood."
"No   woman,"   he   says,   "whatever
her  ability  may  be.  is  able  to  bring
i up properly a man-child, because uu*
BClOUBly she exerts a destructive influence on the masculine character of
the boy. A woman never really enters
into the thought of men. We have in
this result," writes Rear Admiral
Chadwick, "the cause in greatest degree, of our Bupineness in municipal
affairs, in our inability to struggle
against the capture of franchises, in
th** general want of stand-up ness. it
is not that women are not in their way
active in public matters, but the men,
in   the  man's  rt al   way,  are   not.
Rear Admiral Chadwick points out
that this "subjecting of our young
males to the psychics of the women,"
with its "evil effect." is a "greal and
vital question," which should be seriously considered at once, in ibis connection In- gives statistics showing

esrvice That Backs Up
Advertising Most Successfully
In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise. A man who supplies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing
number of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been swinging to this view of not only
large enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions. The merchant, large or small, who
does not sense the full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
That the more progressive business
men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
in advertisements: "Our store is your
store." "We pay the clerks for your service." It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
rules of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend this
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accordingly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is how groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcory service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and adds
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.

three of her snugs, was prevented by
the city from appearing at the Or-

and evening. The audience had fully
assembled before there.was any notification of this turn in events, and Mr.
Pilling announced that all who wero
dissatisfied could receive their money
back. About 1!5 per cent of the people
availed   themselves  of  the offer.
"The city takes the full responsibility," said Mayor Baxter. "She has
been putting on a show which has
been too near the verge of vulgarity
