Evidently prompted by the fear that the ultimate
result of the Ulster deadlock will be dissolution, Premier
Asquith of Great Britain has reached a hurried conclusion
to give notice that before the present session ends he will

Should the Ulster crisis bring on the death of the Asquith

Prior'to tepurchase, the population)

"lean highly recommend "l'ruit-a-

lot of (rood and I cannot speak too
11 in 111 y about them. About four years
ago, I commenced taking " Kruit-a-
tivcs" for a general break-ilowu ami
they did me a world of good. We
bought a good many dollar's worth.
but it was money well spent because
they did all that you claim for them.
Their action is so pleasant, compared
with other laxatives, that 1 found only
pleasure, as well as health, in taking
them. They seemed to me to b*-
particularly suited to women, ou
account of their miltl and gentle action,
and I trust that some other women
may start taking ''Fruit-a-tives" after
reading my letter, and if they do. I am
satisfied the results will tie the same

"This imposing structure, the high-
e*St   in   Yucatan*,   rises   seventy-eight
feet above the plain. The pyramid on
which   the  temple  stands  is   19,"   feet
long   and   covers   about   an     acre   of
ground.    It is made of nine terraces
of  faced  masonry, each  terrace  elaborately panelled  to relieve the monotony of effect.    Up the center of each
of  its   four  sides   rises    a    stairway
thirty-seven   feet   wide.     These   stairways have massive stone balustrades
.carved   to   represent     serpents,     the
heads being at the bases of the stairways and  flanking them.
"The  Castillo  would  seem  to  have
been  the  center of  the  ancient   city,
and  probably its chief sanctuary.    To
, the north lies the sacred Cenote, well,
and  the  causeway  leading to  it.    On
the east is a vast group of buildings,
colonnades,    courts,    and    pyramids,
.'The   City   of   a   Thousand   Columns.'
iiis someone has picturesquely describ-
I ed it.   Due west is the group of structures  known  as  the   Ball  Court.    To
the   south   for   half   a   mile   or   more,
scattered through the jungle, are pyramids,   courts,   temples,  and   palaces.
The  central   location  of  the  Castillo,
with reference to all ot these, as well
as  its  great  size  and    commanding
height, argue strongly that it was the
chief sanctuary of the Holy City,    hi
another   structure  the  'House  of  the
Tigers'   are   found   the   remnants   of
several     beautiful    mural    paintings.
One of these represents an attack by
an enemy on a  large city, splendidly
executed,   and   presents   perhaps   the
most   remarkable   piece  of  aboriginal
painting   known   to   be   in   existence.
The  total  area  covered  by  the  ruins
has   been   estimated   at   ten     square

; lor Hose, chairman of the committee,
i said that he bad been in formed by

; the commission intends to see that
' this municipality shall get its share

j thought that Burnaby would get the
i first consideration on account of the
large number of industries that wish
i i d to locate within its boundaries.
Councillor McDonald said that it
i was all a real estate bluff. N. ither
! he nor Councillor Bevan could see
why the survey of the North Arm
should cost $50,000 when a survey of
the main river only cost iti the
neighborhood of $15,000. Councillor
FauVel agreed with Councillor Rose
that the scheme of the harbor board
wculd result in bringing industries to
the district.
A motion was made to lay the question on the table for an indefinite
period, but the dirk Informed the
committee that the motion was out of

Old  Toronto Doctor    Itehenrses
Days of Hi*. AlHucnce.
Forty years ago old Doctor John
] ��� the rest of bis name does not matter���-celebrated bis fortieth blrth-
iday, a leading citizen of Toronto, a
doctor with an extended practice, the I
i owner of drug shops, and a veteran
lol the 10th Itoyal Irish Regiment,
j with service in India.
Recently tbe old doctor celebrated
his eightieth birthday in Toronto
jail, having been senT down for sixty
days, homeless, penniless, and drunk.
Hut he is no ordinary drunk. He
drinks to remember and not to forget. When he finds the memories
of his prosperous days slipping away,
the little old man goes away by himself and drinks to refresh the memories tbat are his one interest ln
life. The whisky does more than
refresh them, It brings them so close
that he lives them over again. He
unearthed a. plug hat and a faded,
old-fashioned, bottle-green, cut-away
coat, takes a battered satchel In his
band, and starts out on his professional rounds, just as he was accustomed to do forty years ago.
Down to the lower ends of Jarvls,
Sherbourne, and Simcoe streets goes
tbe doctor, to where bis fashionable
clients once lived. He does not see
that these districts have aged and
grown shabby, like himself. Up be
stumps to tbe faded doors, and instead of a neat housemaid ushering
him in, and taking his hat, a lodging-
house mistress blocks his way. To
her, the dignified old ghost of
memories is only a fuddled old
drunk. She calls a policeman. Tbe
old doctor ls taken to court, where
Mr. Ellis kindly remands him to
sober up--to come out of tbe past.
But in a sort while the aged man
goes anain to the bosom of his
memories, on  whisky-light feet.
Old Dr. John is a graduate of
Trinity College, Dublin, and served
��� as army surgeon and as soldier In
| several Indian campaigns with the
i 10th lloyal Irish regiment. In 1871
| be came to Toronto and set up prac-
j tlce. He owned four chemist shops,
one at the corner of Queen and Sher-
j bourne, one at the corner of Dundaii
| and Koxley streets, and others at
I places forgotten by him in the ad-
I vance of days. He bad an extended
I medical practice, but it grew away
(from him, and when, eighteen years I
I ago, bis wife died, the doctor began
lo subsist on memories.
Seen in tbe cellB, Dr. John said he
knew of no relatives.
"1 once had property, but it got
away from me," he said. "I still
bave this���top hat and coat���to
make my calls in." He was still
several years away.

I mission sent to Kyoto to ask Marquis Saionji to reconsldei bis decision
to retire trom active politics, was
only a subterfuge, the real aim being
to express want of confidence in Mr.

It must be explained in this connection, tbat, according to the rules of
organization of the Seiyukai, dictatorial powet is vested ill its president.

On "Summer
Summer months are considered dull in most retail lines of business.
That is a fact which we must face. But let us
go into the pros and cons of the subject and find
out why it is a dull season.
They say the buyers go out of town in the summer.   That is not so.
Some of the people do leave the city during the
summer���but do you realize what a small per cent-
age of the population is away at any one time?
Eight hundred to a thousand at most. And the 19,-
000 who are left have as many wants in the summer
as they have in the winter���and as much money with
which to satisfy them.
They say people won't buy goods in the summer.
That is the merchants' fault.
Do you remember when they wouldn't buy white
goods in the winter time? Now they buy more white
goods in January than in any other month in the
year. Advertising in the newspapers made this
A few years ago the quietest spot on the face of
the earth was a furniture store in February.   Newspaper advertising has made it the biggest month
with live merchants.    You can sell snowshoes in
August if you advertise them right.
Now let us get down to brass tacks.
The only reason why business is dull in summer
time is because merchants let it be so. They let habit blind them to the business that can be had. It
would not take many years to make the two weeks
before Christmas dull���if the merchants quit advertising and .acted as though there was no business to
be had.
We know that the people of New Westminster are
not all out of town���that they have the money to
buy all they need���that they will buy goods out of
season if they are urged to do so.

Vared  Expression* in Presi Relative
to Hindu Situation on Pacific
Ottawa, July 21.���Some contrad'c
tory views relating to the Hindu situa-
tion at Vancouver are appearing in
tin', eastern press. The Montreal Daily
Mail,  Independent, says:
"By their refusal to accept the
order of the courts of British Colum
bia upholding the government uf
<'anada in its decision to deport them.
th.' Hindus now * on the Komftg-U
Mam at the Pacific coast have alien
ated whatever public sympathy hail
Kone out to them in this country.
Thus the Canadian government may
now take action to deport them as
.!.__. tic as it chooses. In one way the
Hindus have done the Canadian people a service. They have provided
some, kind of work to be done by tlle
Ka.nbow and the Niobe. Hy their ex-
hiMtlon of militancy they have afforded the government an opportunity
to use the Canadian navy in the service of the people of the country for
the. first time, since Its use nl political picnics has gone out of style."
The Ottawa Morning Citi.en. lu-
dependent-Conservative, on ths other
hand, says:
"l!   would  seem   lo  he about    lime]
lhat someone  in    authority   realizled
fhe gravity of the Hindu problem    in
British Columbia.   The handling   ofi
the Japanese steamer I.oimr.iita Maru
with   its  shipload of  British  subjects
trom India Is clearly noi a matter to j
be left  to a  lew  machine politicians.
ll   should  never  have     been   left     to
them.    Since the com Ilig of the ship
to   Vancouver   it   has   been   painfully !
.virient   that     the     petty   politicians,!
both  provincial and federal, were out
of their depths.  The  latest exploit of ,'
sending a  tug laden   with  police and
armed gunmen i" deal with the Hindus at - o'clock on a Sunday morning
is   surely   the   limit   Of    comic  opera
After describing the scene at Van-
couver on Sunday morning .the Citizen continues:
"The   Canadian   Immigration   law
with regard to the landing of the Hin- j
tins would seem to have    been    con- I
ceived  in an evasive way by tlie Lib- ]
orals, but it will take something big- j
irer  than   the    statesmanship of    Sir i
Richard    Mcllride and H. 11. Stevens.

now  in over it.    Nor  will  the    latest '
< fficial move to Introduce the cruiser
Rainbow on to the scene add to    its
Oignity. The Rainbow has been a subject for stupid partizan ridicule   ever
since  it came to Canada.    After ridiculing it, to use the    little    British-
cruiser against   British    Indian   subjects would seem to be the height of
faict nsigtent Imperialism."
