Mexico City, May 3. - Dr. Ryan, confidential agent of the American state
department, who was arrested a few
days ago at Zacatecas, and whose release was demanded by Secretary
Bryan, arrived in Mexico City today

Th- authorities here offer no explanation as to his arrest. Huerta's

Duke   of  Connaught   Will   Make   Proposed Trip Very  Phortly.
Ottawa,  May ;',.���The  following  an
nouneeraent was made by government
house   today   In   response   to   an   en-
i riuiry as to the effect of the death ol

('owes. Isle of Wight, May 2. The
Duke of Argyll,, son-in-law of the late
Queen Victoria and former aovernor-
general of Canada, died tonight at
Blast ('owes, aged 89.
The ninth Duke of Argyll was per
haps more closely identified with the
founding of many of the older Canadian enterprises, literary and otherwise than any British peer not Canadian born. As governor general from
1878 to 1883, when he was Marquis of
Dome, he founded the Royal Academy
of Art, In conjunction with his wife,
Princess Louise, and the Royal Society
or Canada, which had for Its object
the promotion of science and literature
in the Dominion. Indicating that he
was not Interested in literature alone,
however, was his presentation of its
firsh challenge trophy to the Royal
Nova Scotia yacht club and he was
also one of the promoters of the movement for making a national birthday
presi nt to Canada In connection with
the Quebec tercentenary two years
He was DL.D. (hon.) of Queen's
University. Kingston; a Lit D. of Laval University, and a vice president of
tbe Royal Colonial institute. As president of the London committee for the
restoration of the library of Toronto
university he assisted that committee
in sending 3(1,000 volumes to the library  in  1892.
The Duke's Tact.
All the marquis' well known resources as a diplomat were called into
play during his visit with Lady Out'
ferln. I'rincess Louise, to the Pacific
coast in the summer of 1876. They
travelled by way of San Francisco and
reach) d Victoria some time in August
when the feeling of the people against
the federal authorities were very
strong. The colony had just become
a province and was waiting for the
Dominion government to fulfil its promise of Unking tlie east and west by
a. ti"an��troiitlm��iitai railway. A royal
reception was tendered the marquis
and his suite, but a number of the
arches both in New Westminster and
Victoria bore pictures Of a railway engine and legends in big letters asking
"When- is the Railway?"
The tour extended as far north as
Port Simpscn of which Indian mission
Dr. Crosby was In charge- and it Included the Queen Charlotte islands.
En route' south the royal party called

they were cutting down to show her
how it was done was not large enough
to be a typical Douglas fir, although
Bhe hcrse'lf thought It was a pretty
big tree. She received 40 letters when
th>- Inlet was reached. The party
crossed on a bumpy trail eight miles
to New Westminster and thence up
to Yale, where a trip was made on
the Marquis of Lome, a handsome
tally-ho, built for the occasion by the
proprietor oi Barnard's express. The

The Duke of Argyll, whose full title
would fill a great deal of space, was
In the imperial house of commons before and after official residence at
Rldeau Hall. He represented Argyllshire from 1868 to 1878 and South
Manchester from 1895 to 1900. Born
In Stafford House, 'London, Aug. 1.
1845. the son of the eighth Duke of
\rgvll and the daughter of the
Durlns-i of Sutherland, he was edu

Washington, April :i -Despatches
from Brigadier-Dcueral i'unsten on the
situation at \era Cruz were the sub-
jtct of a long conference at the war
department tonight between Secretary Harrison and Major-General
Wetherspoon, chief of staff of the
army. It was said General Funsten
hat- asked for instructions in view ot
the hostile attitude of tlie Mexican
army near the city.
It became definitely established today that General Carranza would not
agree to the request of the mediators
that he suspend military operations
a&ninst Huerta pending the mediation
proceedings. It is said this will have
!io effect on checking the general
plans of mediation.
Close associates of Carranza, who
have now arrived here, say that no
mediation between them and Huer-.k
Is possible and thut any move on the
pari of tlie mediators, to include In
their program a scheme for the general adjustment of .Mexican affairs
will be regarded as being outside the
sceipe  ot   their  labors.
Meanwhile the campaign against the
Huerta forceg In the north is proceeding full force, the mediation work
not being considered by the coiiBtltu- j
tlonali&ts ag having any bearing on
tlie relat.ons between Huerta and
themselves. The inarch on Mexico
City, according to those near Carran
��a," is to be undertaken as soon as
militaiy   operations   will   permit.
Carranza'B refusal of an armistice
between nim and Huerta is the first
adverse reply the mediators have re
ceived. On the other hand a favorable comment is made in circles close
to the envoys upon the amenability
Huerta  has   shown.
The mediators have discussed
Whether it may become desirable to
go to some neutral point outside
Washington to carry forward their
V-KOiiatioiijj with the three parties
concerned. The only purpose in this
would be to forestall the feeling that
their sessions at the seat of government here might tend to a leaning
toward the I'nited States, the desire
being to make their deliberations as
detached and independent as possible.
Tbe upsetting of a canoe from
which they were fishing cost the lives
cf John Thompson and David Auvache, residents of I'ort Hammond, on
Saturday morning. Tha accident took
place In a small lake six miles north
of Port Hammond. Dragging operations were carried on throughout yesterday ny provincial constables and
private citizens, but to no avail, and
It is likely that nature will be allowed to do Its part in the recovery of
the bodies.
The party, which also included
John Newton, left Port Hammond for
the lake on Wednesday of last week
intending to spend several days' fishing. Mr. Newton left his companions
on Saturday morning in order to secure a new supply of provisions and
on his return found the old canoe
they had been using floating bottom
upwards in the lake.   Thompson's hat
as floating nearby while the fish
ing rods the men had used were also
floating in the water.
After making a hurried searcli Newton returned to town on Saturday to
nutify lhe provincial police, who were
on the scene yesterday "with no success in locating the bodies. Thompson was a married man and leaves a
widow and children to mourn his loss.
Mr. Auvache, who was only 20 years
old, was the son of the Port Hammond Baptist minister.

British   Columbia   Has   Largest   Per

Ottawa. May 3.���School attendance
in Canada is set forth in a statistical
work   just   published   by   the   census
branch and based upon the last census.
The total population between Lie a��e
of six :uid twenty years was 2.141,909.
ot   which   number  1,124,800   were  attending school  in  1910.    The  percentage   is   52.51.     Of   the   total   991.534
were   Canadians.   58,115   British   and
75,151   foreign   born.     In   the  eastern
provinces   the   highest   percentage   of
attendance  between  7  and  14  yearsa
was   ln   Prince   Edward   Island   with
84.60   per   cent,   closely   followed   by-
Vera Cruz, May 3. -Persistent reports continue to circulate here that
(Ieneral Huerta Intends to retire from
the provisional presidency of Mexico
on condition that he be assured a safe
npndiiet to a port and placed on board
a foreign warship.
It is declared In some main circles
here that General Huerta was readyt
to  resign a  week ago,  but  was prevented from so doing by internal dissensions in his cabinet.
The  disappearance  from  the main
cabinet of Jose 1-iopez  Portlllo y Ro-
jas, the foreign minister, coupled with
reports that there is a growing undercurrent    of    feeling  in   Mexico City
against Huerta, is interpreted here as
fore-shadowing a change in the situation in the federal capital.    Some of
the closest observers of the government's   situation   assert   that   Rojas'
resignation   may   clear   the   way   for
the appointment of a foreign minister,
who under the Mexican constitution,
could succeed    General    Huerta.    In
these  circles  it  is  pointed  out  that
while General  Carranza declined  to
treat with General Huerta, he might
consent to enter into negotiations with
his successor and thus facilitate mediation.
The effect of the continued rebel
successes In the north and the outcome of the pending attack on Tampico may, according to well Informed
opinion, bring about a rapid change in
Mexico City.
While the federal capital was re
ported quiet today, people who ar
rived here said that the populace the'-e
was beginning to learn that General
Huerta had been deceiving the people
by issuing false reports of federal successes over the constitutionalists.
The news of the peaceful way in
which the Americans are occupying
Vera Cm?., it is said, has spread to
the capital and has convinced them
that the American invasion of that
port is not for conquet or aggression.
Refugees assert that the Inhabitants
of the capital fear the coming there
of General Villa more than they fear
that of the American troops.

thai   tbe   King   has   been   pleased   to
center the  honor of a  baronetcy  of
the-   I'nited   Kingdom   upon   Major-
General John William Campbell, C.B.,
of   Ardnamurehaii.   with   precedence
from 1S04.    Sir John Campbell Is de-
Igcrlbed by Burke as the ninth holder
;of  a   baronetcy   originally   of  Nova
Scotia, created in 1627. The llrst baronet, Sir Donald Campbell, was twice
married.      His  first   wife  was  Jane,
j daughter of the sixth Karl of Argyll,
'and  she died    without    bearing  her
husband   any  children.     Sir   Donald
| then  married   his   deceased's   wife's
half-sister, Anne, a natural daughter
of the- Karl of Argyll.    By her he bad
���n   son.   John,    but    tbe    latter   predeceased him, and bis other children
| were daughters.     To  perpetuate  the
baronetcy, therefore, sir Donald, in
1648, resigned  that dignity  into the
King's hands for a new enfeoffment
i of it. and the lands annexed In favor
[of   his   nephew,   Oeorge   Campbell.

The finding of the coroner's jury that the fire which
destroyed the tent colony, causing the deaths of thirteen
women and children in the Colorado strike zone, was started by militia or mine guards or both, paints a black blotch
on the history of the maintenance of law and order in the
United States.
By every law-abiding citizen the rash act will be regretted ; by the faction of the people which delights in agitating it will be used for years to come as an argument in
favor of resistance to constituted authority.
It always has been a mooted point whether the calling
out of militia to aid in suppressing labor disorders was
the proper course to pursue. The laying on the shoulders
of American militia officers of responsibility for the
deaths of thirteen defenceless human beings will go far, at
least across the border, towards effectually condemning
the use of citizen soldiers in such emergencies and during g-ggj- g Jj��� tjujjj ft  for *j^rt% lB0 year, and the

In the death of I he Duke of Argyll, son-in-law of the
late Queen Victoria, Canada has lost a firm friend whose
influence in the old land in favor of this Dominion has
been widely felt ever since he occupied Rideau Hall as our
governor general.
From the commanding position he held in the empire,
as well as from his intimate knowledge of conditions in
Canada, the duke was able on more than one occasion to
offer telling counsels distinctly beneficial to the Dominion
in which he had represented royal authority, while his
tact and keen insight into affairs pertaining to this land
often have been at our service, perhaps oftener than the
ordinary Canadian realizes.
He was a truly royal gentleman, able withal, and his I
death, following1 so closely on the passing of our own so-/
much-beloved Strathcona, leaves a still wider gap in the
ranks of the friends of Canada in the mother country.

Bff McKenale St MONDAY, MAY 4, 1914.
By D. Maxwell Merry
No one deserves to succeed in advertising who
is not prepared to spend a good deal of trouble over
the work. The manufacturer and the retailer spend
both time and trouble over the selection of efficient
salesmen and the work of educating them to accurately represent their goods to the prospective customer. Yet both of these frequently neglect the
silent salesman���the newspaper advertisement���
upon which their success largely depends.
Even without painstaking effort, even written
as poorly as it generally is written, retail advertising pays the storekeeper. Practically no one ever
loses by it. But there is very little retail advertising
which, by work easily within the powers of any man
with brain enough to run a store, could not be made
a great deal more profitable than it is.
The kind of thought required is thought about
the goods in the store. Nothing has been put into
stock without a reason. There is nothing there that
the dealer would not recommend to his customers.
It is surely not much more difficult to write a recommendation than to frame a verbal one.
A few sentences are all that is required.   Select
something which deserves a good sale, and write
down, exactly as if you were talking to a customer,
the reasons for thjnking well of it, and you have the
basis of an advertisement which is certain to pro-'
duce a run on your goods.   That is the basis���not
the finished advertisement.   This requires a little
more thought.   Decide what are the selling points.
Describe them, trying to get the facts into the smallest number of words that will hold them.   Use the
plainest, simplest, most straightforward language,
words that are in every day use, the shortest sen
tenftes.   Do not be content with saying the goods are
excellent; say why they are excellent.
If retailers would only realize how greatly their
interest in business would be increased through the
fact of always having an advertisement in preparation���a new one every week or day���they would not
regard advertising as expense or trouble, they would
do it for the pleasure of it and the satisfactory returns derived from good advertising.
Every dealer understands his goods. He knows
why he bought them, and why they ought to be easily
sold. He could talk about them all night. Yet when
he begins to advertise them he is apt to display his
name in the biggest type and a few prices of various
lines without entering into the selling points of his
goods in the way that will convince the reader.
The price may be an important factor in getting
business but it is only in exceptional cases when people can be induced to buy goods merely because they
are cheap. Ordinarily the reason is that they want
them. The purpose of advertising is to make people
want the goods.
Don't blame the newspaper because your advertising does not pull as you think it should. If your
goods are right and your prices are right, you have
just as much opportunity of success as the next man.
The newspaper gives you so much circulation for so
much money���it is up to you to make your advertising appeal to the readers by giving it the earmarks
of attractiveness and honesty. You are selling goods
that they want, and it is not difficult to convince
them if you put painstaking effort and thoughtful-
ness into the method of appeal.
The Dinner Hottest.
It ls Imperative that tbe dinner
hostess be ready and unruffled by
baste, a little ahead of tbe time set
for her guests to arrive, if civility
counts at all, one's guests ure usually
on time. It Is proper to wait a few
moments ror tbe late comers. Tbe
rule laid down by a clever hostess In
London some years ago was: "To
wait dinner five minutes for an earl
aud countess, ten minutes fur a duke from
nnd duchess and fifteen minutes for
the Prince nnd I'rincess of Wales.
The king is never late." Which proves
tbe great of the eartb are punctual in
keeping their engagements.
It Is not kind nor proper to spoil a
gcod dinner for many guests because
uf the late arrivals of tbe few. It is
proper to announce dinner live minutes after the arrival of the last guest
���unless we adopt tbe American fusb-
lon of having cocktails served in tbe
drawing room before dinner. Then
dinner is announced tlve minutes after
that little ceremony ls over. The conservative part of tbe world of fashion
follow the foreign idea and omit tbe
cocktail. Tbe wines are usually very
simple���a good white wine and champagne with the dessert and fruit Tbe
men linger over tbe wines and nuts
a very short time today.
Tbe table linen may be as elaborate
as the pocket book permits. Yet tbe
dictates of good form point to tbe less
trimmed cloth, a tine damask or linen
bemstltehed with napkins to match.
The napkins are large and square, with
tbe initials embroidered ln tbe center,
and folded in three parts.
Tbe decorations In glass and silver
are less ostentatious. The glassware
is now uf rock crystal and tbe tumbler
tor water���cooled, not Iced���has a tail,
slender stem, the wine glasses and
champagne glass tbe same shape in
The display of knives nnd forks Is reduced to a mere nothing today. Tbe
old time bewildering glitter was too
formidable���It spoiled our dinuer by
suggesting "too much fur digestion's
The- number of plates Is also reduced.
A   guest  should   never   be   without  it
plate before him.   "The little aperitif' ;
ls on a small plate resting iu u larger
one, and when removed a dinner plate
is at once placed in front of the guest
and removed as the plate upon whleb
the soup plate rests is put before tbe
guest.   Auotber plate is substituted rot
the entire course in tbe same way.    It
is very simple, and tbe only rule t*
there should not be a vai-uut place Iu
front of tbe guest   A plate should always be there.
A little block of bread or "petit pain"
is put by tlie napkin to tie used as a
convenience in nniiiuglii;: wilful tirluit*
which evade tbe fork, with a gentle but
decided coercion.
finger bowls of rock crystal, with a
little plate to match, and a pretty lace
doily under the bowl are brought iu
with the dessert plates at a home din
tier, and with tbe plates for fruits and
bonbons at a more formal affair. Tbe
water in tbe bowls should tie warmed
just enough to take the chill off, and a
bit ot lemon should tie added to the
water, which should cover tbe first
joint of the fingers.
le.visli Shade bans Derive fiood
Comes as (io-lietwrens.
It will, no doubt, surprise many
Londoners to learn that there are
scores of Jews who live comfortably
In tbe Knglish capital simply by contracting marriages between tbelr coreligionists. Tbese marriage-makers
are known as "Shadchans." The custom wblcb prevails among the Ghetto
Jews of getting married through the
agency of a marriage broker imported from the Continent, where Jews
consider It immodest for young in- n
to do their own ccurting without tbe
intervention of a "Sbadchan."
The descendants of Pharaoh's
brickmakers, who dwell east of Aid-
gate, have great respect for the
"Shadchan," for they never know
when they might have to utilize his
services. The remuneration of the
"Shadchan" usually consists of a fee
tbe bride and bridegroom, according to their means, and often he
also claims a percentage of the dowry
as his perquisite.
The business of the "Shadchan" is,
apparently, In a very flourishing condition.  Tbe other day on< of the fraternity   Informed   the  writer  that   a
Jewish  marriage  broker would con-
1 aider it a bad year indeed If he ( d
jnot "make" $2,000.   Only recently a
: "Shadchan" well known In the East
j Knd  of  London  died,  leaving  more
! than $35,000 accumulated by fe'^s for
bringing couples together.
A "Shadchan" Is never tired of ei-
jaggerating Ihe advantages to be de-
: r'ved from the union which he pro-
i poses, but It is mainly the old-fash-
honed Jews who rely rn this medium
to  bring about marriages   for  their
jsons or daughters. The name denotes
a  "bringing  together."  as  it   is  the
j 'Shadchan" who initiates the whole
Jews who have been in England for
! many years, and v. bo engage the matrimonial  services  of  a  "Shadchan,"
| contend that they are still there, and,
consequently, are compelled to make
uue of the knowledge and experience
of an expert marriage broker.
A "Shadchan" sometimes employ?
curious   means  of   persuasion. le
threatens the prospective bridegroom,
whom he has introduced to one of his I
el'ents, with a breach of promise ac-
tion should he refuse to marry her. ,
Think or the responsibility of a man
who may be blamed for a Bcore of un- |
happy   marriages!    Fortunately,   the |
���najority turn out well, and the most j
prominent     individual     under     the

"Shadchan." who is held In high esteem by all assembled on the happy

Douglas Fir 250 Feet in Length Will
Be Presented to England By
Iiovwl  Statesman  In  Vain.
A romance in the life of the Right
rion. C. P. Villlers, the statesman
who represented Wolverhampton in
Parliament for forty-five years and
died in 1898, is recalled by the death
ot Mr. Hamilton Fane Gladwin of
Seven Springs, Gloucestershire. Eng.
Mr. Villlers, who was born In 1802
was in his yotKh and middle age a
strikingly  handsome man.     Sir   Edward Russell, in his book of reminia-
cenoes, "That Reminds Me," says, in
allusion  to him,  that  "The  Duke of
Buckingham was not the only Villlers
who   bad  a   reputation   for   manly
amenities  and   fasrination  and    kind
reception by the fair."    His personality attracted   the   only   child  and
heiress of Mr. John Mellish, of Hani-
mels'  Park, Hertfordshire,   who   fell
ardently  in  love  with  him.
The affection was not reciprocated
but. nevertheless, on her death Miss
Mellish made Mr. Villlers her heir to
Victoria, May 3.--Mr. II. It. Mac-
Millan, the chier forester of the Provincial government said y.-sterday
that he hoped the difficulty of trans-
porting the 2ii0-foot Douglas fir flagpole, which the province is presenting
to the Kew Gardens, iu England, had
now been overcome, and that a shipping company had been found to undertake the task of delivering this
huge stick to an English port. The
dimensions of such a flagpole will
necessitate Its being carried as part
of a deck cargo. At one time fears
were entertained that it might be
found necessary to cut it In two and
splice it on erection at  Kew.
The following facts that led up to
| the   presentation   or   this   pole   were
gleaned In an interview with Mr. McMillan  yesterday  morning.
More than half a century ago, in the
year which saw the opening of the
great American Civil War, there was
erected in the Kew arboretum a flagpole which has since- remained one of
the most conspicuous landmarks ot
the neighborhood.
It was the second of two spars presented with great public spirit by Captain Edward Starp, and was made
from a British Columbian fir. The age
of the tree from which it was cut
was about 250 years, and Its total
height 180 feet. It was broken ln
the course of erection, but is believed
to be the tallest spar in the old world.
As the years passed the base of the
flagstaff gradually became decayed,
and in 1895 it was declared by the
admiralty to be unsafe. Expert opinion was obtained, and it was decided
to splice a new base of pitch pine on
to the flagstarr in place of the decayed portion. The pole was successfully moved, the butt removed and the
splice made and clamped into position
with iron bands. The spar was then
| It was thought at the time that the
(life of the flagstaff had been prolonged for another thirty years, ln May
1 last, however, after one of the fre-
' quent overhaulings to which the pole
J is subjected, the workmen refused to
ascend it again, declaring it to be un-
j safe, in November it was taken down
i and the fears of the workmen were
found  to be  justified.    Dry  rot    had
spread up the new butt to a height of
about seven feet, while at the bottom
I for a height of two  feet, more than
half the sectional area had been com
pletely  destroyed.    The original spar

Good Form In Posing.
Have you ever sat iu a restaurant
and looked around at the various tables occupied by pretty women and
then dropped your eyes to tbe floor
nnd scrutinized tlie position of their
feet? What a shock awaits you, for
tbe average woman assumes the most
grotesque of positions when she sits
herself down in a chair���or, ratber,
her feet take on the weirdest attitudes
that any oue could imagine. For Instance, she may be sitting correctly
from the waist iipward-the acme of
grace ns far ns tlie upper part or her
laxly ts conceriieil-biit her feet are
twisted and curled around the legs of
-the chair in a way that suggests a
contortionist, or if this Is not the case
per Imps she has placed her pedal extremities on the floor with lhe toes
turned In until oue suspects her ot being pigeon toed.
Why is it lhat so few women can
make their feet befcave? And wby
do the many who walk with tbe greatest amount of grace lose all their
charm (be minute they sink luto a
chair'/ The correct sitting position is
not difficult, and any woman can liwru
to assume it with a little care and practice.
When sitting down, whether at a
restaurant table. In an easy chair or
in a public place, do not forget that
the feet should be placed squarely on
the floor, the heels touching or very
nearly touching, the knees not too far
apart This position is just as comfortable ns any of the grotesque attitudes assumed when crossing the
knees, curling tbe reel around the
rungs of the chair or any of tlie hundred and one other ungraceful modes

Toronto, May 3.   -Within a short distance of the city of Toronto whither
he was coming to deliver an address
to the  Canadian   Brotherhood  at  the
Metropolitan   church,   Rev.   Sylvester
Home, member of the British  house
of commons for Ipswich, fell dead on
the    deck    of  the   Niagara   steamer
Corona on Saturday night at the feet
of his wife.    The visit of the distin-
gnished visitor to the American continent was for the purpose of delivering a series of lectures at Yale  university.     These   were  concluded   last
week,  and  his  visit to Toronto  was
the result of an  invitation  from  the
Canadian Brotherhood.
I     Mr. Home  was  president    of    the
j Brotherhood movement ln Great Brit-
ain, elected this    year.    Mr.    Home
\ spent two days at Boston and left on
I Kriday for Toronto by way of Burfalo
I and Niagara Falls.
Pet      At  Buffalo  he  complained  of  not
.700 ! feeling well.    At the Kails after vlsit-
.686 I ing the places of Interest he retired
,660  to his hotel but having apparently re-
.450' cuperated  decided    to    continue   his
.350 I journey to Toronto.   On the arrival of
.2410   the boat the body  was taken to  the
, residence of N.   W.  Howell,  leader of
I the opposition  In  the Ontario legisla-
��� ture.   Tomorrow morning Mrs. Home
I will leave for Montreal and will sail
for England  on  Tuesday,  taking  the
remains with her. The late Mr. Home
was born in 1865 at Cuckfield, Sussex,
England.   He graduated from Glasgow
university   and   subsequently  studied
theology at Mansfield college, Oxford.
On his ordination as a Congregational
minister he became pastor of Kingston
chapel, 'London.    Later he resigned to
become  identified   with  a   mission  at
Whitefields church, Tottenham Court
Hoad,  which  he  built up by a somewhat novel method and which is one '
of his greatest  monuments.    At the
general election Of 1910, he contested
Ipswick  in  the  Liberal  interests and
won it by a large majority.    In  1892
he  married  a daughter of Sir  II.   II.

no danger of Japan going to war with

the Jeweller, who has just returned
from a three months' tour of Japan,
China and the Philippines. "Japan

"Japanese of the hlglur classes with

teil thi' assi .tions made by Mr. Mo-
ri ii.
The Dutch statesman declared that
so far as he was aware no costs had
ever been charged to the arbitrator!,
a certain sum of money being offered
by those powers which are bringing
their differences before the court for
On one' occasion. Mr. Lohman
thinks an arbitrator living at a very
gnat distance objected to the amount
offered as being insufficient. If, therefore, the' contracting powers consider
the amount to be paid to the arbitrators too great, they can, themselves,
li\ a lower rate, and any arbitrator
who is not satisfied can make an objection.
Solution Called Simple.
This. Mr. Lohman, thinks, a very
simple' solution of the problem. As a
rule, he continued, the powrts pay the
same amount to all arbitrators. It is
easily understood that this sum may
si'e'ni a great deal to one and quite
an ordinary amount to another. An
Englishman or a Russian accustomed
to much bigger sums being paid on
these occasions than, for Instance, a
Dutchman, but It would not eto to
make.' ally distinctions. Still, Mr. Loh
man thinks that In special elrcum-

The car, which had been shipped to

company could explain how the intoxicants got Into the car.
After reading about this, Miss Warden sought the Internal revenue officers at the federal building. She
told them her former suitor. Law lor,
while calling upon her eight weeks
ago. brought her twenty-four bottles
of beer and a quart of whiskey in a
suitcase. Lawlor told her it was from

Constitution Favors Amendment!.
If ten more states could be secured
to  vote  for  prohibition  it  would  become  the  law  of the  whole country.
Th" llrst step would be   for   a   two-
thirds majority of the qorum of each
house  of  congress  to 'send   such  an
amendment to the states for acceptance or rejection.   The president lias
no power to veto this resolution. Once
the amendment Is returned    to    the
states tiie c;iances of its being successful eventually are great indeed.    If a
I state votes for the prohibition amend-
' ment, Its vote must stand for all time.
] It canout change Its mind next year
j or the year after, in the event of the
, matter not being settled.   On the oth-
' er hand, if  it votes no, the decision

j be brought forward again and again,
; and It might almost be said that the
j state   will  continue   to  vote   until   it
votes yes.
i    The    motto    of    the    Anti-Saloon
strong movement is on foot for tne
preparation of a Musso-fieiniaii commercial treaty. The matter was fully discussed and approved at a commercial congress lately held at Vllna,
Which was attended by 200 deputies

It was deemed desirable that the
duties on colonial food products to and
from Oirmany should be reduced, and
that hotter regulations should be established in regard to the forwa.ding
of samples between the two countries.
The agricultural section of the congress resolved to use their efforts for
tlie abolition of all duties on motor
plows and agricultural Implements.
The industrial section declared that
there must be a reduction in the duty
on printing machines, and that the export duties on lace and similar home
Industries should be refunded.

says  the   Mall  and   Kinplre,  Toronto,
and some figures recently made public
show that this dream is not so ridiculous  as  most  people   might  suppose.
Most Canadians who visit the United
States visit the cities alone.   They go
to New  York,  lioston,    Chicago,    Ue-
troit, or Buffalo, and not even If they
remained In any of them for months
would they  be  likely    to    know  that
there was such an organization as the
Anti-Saloon League in the country, oi
any prospect of reducing the number
of saloons.    The fact to bear in mind
is that the majority of the people in
the United States do not live In the
cities.     If   national   prohibition   is   to
be brought about, it will be by lhe
[country people. How much they have

Frank misses a guess he has regis-
Three weeks ago Frank was walk-
i in* along Abercorn strett, when a girl
j walked up to him and smiled.
"Could   you  tell  me   where    Duffy
! street west iB?" said she.
;     Frank paused.   He is good at many
! things, but as a pauser no one in the
First ward has anything on him.   He
reflected   for  a  moment,  being  good
at that also, and then said:
Just on His Way.
"Lady.   I   waa on   my  way  to  Duffy
j street   weal.     May   I   accompany   you
i there?" and   he    turrted    completely
around, so that he was facing the di-
| rectlon  of  Duffy  street  west.    After
that you have Frank's number.    He's
Well, that walk was one of the most
pleasant ones which Miss Zata Met-
lock, for it was indeed she, had ever
had to Duffy street west There was
something about the young woman
that made a lasting impression on
Frank, and although he had an engagement to color a meerschaum pipe
at i o'clock that afternoon, he wandered on and on. They passed Duffy
street west and walked nearly out of
the city limits before the spell passed.
In that walk Miss Metlock told
Frank that her family had deserted
her and that the police were seeking
her now to protect her from harm un-
As children, our first demand is for nourishment; our
second for facts.
All through life we go about
searching for information.
We make a new acquaintance;
but before we will accept him
as a friend or invite him to our
home we ask for facts about him.
We visit a foreign land; and from
the moment we step across its
border we are asking questions-
searching for facts.
. ��� "
We are asked to try a new food product; isn't it instinctive
with us to ask at once:
"Who makes this new article ?"
" How is it made ? what goes into it ?"
" Is it worth the price charged for it ?"
Facts���we are simply hungry for them.
Strange, isn't it, that we should so often have to search for
them ? Odd, that some manufacturers still withhold the facts
about their product. Not always because they are facts to be
ashamed of���for there are many worthy articles yet unadvertised.
But it will not be so much longer. The fact-hunger of the
human race is becoming keener and keener. The more facts
we get, the keener our relish for more of them.
Soon it will be impossible to sell a man or a woman anything
until everything has been told about the goods that can be tola
through Advertising.
The public has discovered that Advertising tells much-needed facts���
that, in fact, Advertising satisfies fact-hunger.

til some provision could be made for
'.ier. As they turned back toward the
city, a policeman approached them
and speaking gently, but firmly, told
Frank to place an egg in his shoe���
which, in the parlance of the police,
means "beat it."
Exhausted His Ingenuity.
From that day the odd courtsiiip developed.    Not a day passed but some
words  were sent  by    Frank  to Zata.
He slipped them under the jail window-
in cheery notes,  'landed them  to the
guards   who  tore   them   up  and   told,
Zata that Frank was feathery in tiie |
attic, and  some days  when  no other
means  could  be found he sent digni-
tied    telegrams    stating    that    Cupid J
still  held  the fort and  all  was  well, j
Lately it has been for various rea-
sons  rather  difficult  to    send    tele- i
grams.     The  guards    became     more
strict in their censorship, and Frank
decided to risk all in a final appeal
to the vision of Duffy street west. He
asked the jailer if he could have a
few words with Zata, and after receiving a communication from the jailer which was leathery and jolting he
made up ills mind to climb a tree and
Oiscovera an Audience.
He made for a tall elm just outside
the   jail   yard   and   climbing   to   tlie I
topmost branch, called softly to Zata. j
She was in a room almost on a level ;
with the top of the tree and she answered- softly.     In   fact,   the   whole
conversation  was very   soft.    Frank
asked he!  over and over again if she I
would    be    his    "little  tootle  wootie j
Wine   diilfum,"   and   she   said   some- :
thing just as unpronounceable, mean j
ing lii.it she surely would.
1 This had been going on for half an
��� hour when Frank looked down and
| saw that about 200 persons had given
| up work for the day and were in on
the courtship. All were straining their
I ears and some with affected hearing
| had speaking horns pointed skyward.
Frank got a great "hand" when he
! looked down, nnd now the whole town
! is hoping that everything comes out
all  right -including Zata.
