retary of the Catholic school board in
Verdun, said. "Tho reason given la
not a good one and not well consid-
Lots of the foreigners who
over here can read and write.
The fact of the matter Is, this luutc
number of illiterate people is due to
the lack of attendance at school.
There are relatively fewer children
in Montreal going to school than in
former years. You can see the reason
for that also. Their parents are very
poor and cost of living Is so very
high that they force their children
out to work before they are olcl
enough to learn to read, In the bulk
of cases like this attendance ha:v
never been very regular, with the result that you have many who can
neither read nor write. That, 1 think,
is the reason,    lt    is    an    economic
"I  was greatly    surprised    when 1
saw   tha*   report."   snid   II.   Howlnon,
secretary of tlle St. Kdouard Catholic
schoal  board.    "Forty  thousand  people  quite  illiterate  is  far too  many,
lt is very unfortunate that this should
be so.   it would be really bard to say I
wbat  the  cause  is.  although   I  think
xpiained the real
or all of the reasons I'or such a number of illiterate people.    1 think that ���
there should be an Investigation Into
this,    li  is a    grave matter.    There ���
arc people in the city who know the
local   conditions  better and   probably *
could arrive at  the causes if an Investigation was started."
L.  N.   (Heard,  secretary  of  the  St. I
Anslenie Catholic school  board, when
interviewed,   staled   that   lie   did   not
credit   t'ne nport and had  been pre-.+
vlously   inf. ruu-d tliafthe  number ofl
Illiterates i'i the city was _0.00fl.
"i do not think the rsport is cor
reel in its finding," he said. "As
far as the lonign population is con-
oi rned, tor Instance, there are as far
rs my experience goes only two illit
erate classes. Polacks and Italians
They rorm the majority of foreigners
who can  neither  read  nor write."
Efforts were made to secure expressions of opinions from other
prominent school board people, but
they declined to give th.-ir views.
The fact is. according to Messrs
Hogg & Hogg, Solicitors fer Mr
Swilzer, that Ihese rats aro so num
eroUS they require no less thnn twen
ty t'JOl fowl for one meal: and. as
Mr. Switzer has found, what they re
quire, they get.
However, although tlle fins are
satisfied with the breed of chickens
raised by Mr. SwiLier. they sometimes dine elsewhere than In his po'.il
try pens, for in the last three yeara
,they have, only killed and eaten a few
more than a hundred of his fowl.
Chapter are that tlie main Interior already contains 7S monuments and that
the space is full.   As .1 matter of fact
of these 7S only 41  rest on tho I'leor,
while  37  arc   appended   to   the   walls
and panels or are In the forin of windows,   Tbe ordinary visitor to the Cathedral  will  not  notice any  sign  of
; crowding, since the spnees aro architecturally so vast that these 41 memorials   merely   appear    as    simpl"
groups   here   and   there.     Nor   ean   it *
be suggested that they aie in thc way
!of  worshippers,   or   that   the    latter
would be Impeded if others were added.    There are  large  portions of  the
main area of the cathedral where noi
worshipper can see or hoar, and there-i
'fore  It does  not  seem that there ls|
much objection to stationing additional   monuments   or   really   outstanding
men in tli" cathedral. As against ibis.*
thrc Is the argument that II you stuff
a place of worship with Btatues you
miss  all  opportunity   ol'  appreciating;
properly  llie  architectural   attractive-
ness oi the building,   This is perhaps
the case wllh regard to Westminster
Abbey, where it  was recently pointed I
mn  ih.it  there exists hardly a polnl
BXCepI  one  position  in   the organ  loft!
from which the true proportions and
spaces of iiie Abbey ean t,o si en. and
from which Hs floor docs not look like

Ascunsion, Paraguay, Dec. 16.���
While Paraguay lias its serious eco-
iii in.c problems to d-*al with at the
! present moment, a financial Institution like the ilanco Agricolo decs a
ni' a: deal to help out the people with j
small means or no means. As the;
name cf 'he bank Implies, it devotes
iis energies mainly to the agricultural
element. Of the banks capital of
(over $14,000,000, almost half is loaned
out lo farmers, to be repaid in annual
Instalments covering a period of 15:
Tlie Paraguayan peasantry still!
needs to be sho,mi how to improve;
opportunities to best advantage, but
banking interests are as one in declaring that when payments on loans
fall due these arc invariably met by
the agricultural borrowers. The
Ilanco Agricolo is always ready to
furnish the fanners wilh seeds, free
of charge. This applies In particular
lo ihe newcomers who have to pro-
pare the soil and who have to wait
for results. Such settlers are also
provided with fencing wire, plows,
small cane crushing mills, etc., at a
\ ery low cost.
'I luie is no reason that the average
settler should not get along in tbis
country of bounteous natural supply,
.i.n! on" of llie helps extended by the
Banco Agricolo is a cash advance ol
-.", an acre, so that Immigrants may
overcome the fust difficulty of getting new ground cleared should thev
have no money available. If ll had
nm been for the government colonies
in Paraguay there could not have
tuiii tin presenl settlement In anc-
; tions pot considered ns acceptable as

Merchants and shipping nidi alike
aie unable 'o account for tbe s'.uinji
...id i'i.- return of prosperity as heralded i.y the actlVTt) iii ilie charter
market. Suddenly, wttboul any apparent warning, the bottom fell out
of the Kuropean market, business
with the Antipcdiis alone holding
good, accountable to an era of unprecedented prosperity  in  Australia,
drain and flour Interests were not
so mortally effected as the lumbermen. They, with standard logging
rales to contend with, lost heavily,
They could not cut down their operating expenses; the market for their
product was paralvted, and many bad
chartered steam and sail at ruinous
rates.. Tor a time it was widl ly predicted that every Puget sound mill
would have to shut  down.
As many craft have been idle, rates
remain nominal, although with bright
enlng prospects they are expected to
take a jump In tiie near future. The I
schooner Encore has been fix. d at

or Grays Harbor for Valparaiso, the
