Russians Move Again
For Peace Conference
A. E. White yesterday completed one of the
best realty deals which has been put through in the
City lately, namely the sale of the Newcombe Estate
of Burnaby, comprising in all 55 acres, to S. J.
Thompson, of Vancouver.
The property is well known, being formerly
owned by the late Mr. Newcombe, of piano fame,
who purchased it when on a business trip to the coast.
Mr. Thompson owns 26 acres immediately adjoining his recent purchase and it is his intention to
sub-divide the entire holding of 81 acres into acre
tracts, with a view to creating a small settlement
on the land.
A road will be opened through the property, and
possibly considerable clearing may be done before
the land is placed on the market, although the latter
proposition has not been decided upon definitely
as yet.

chamf save the -first    of   the
.-��� rii    on the subject of   "The
standing of women
The chair was filled by Rev. Prin-
elpal Sipprell of ('(iliimbian College,
whei in his introductory remarks call-
ed attention to the vast Qifference In
lhe siiinis of women in ibe civilized
aectioaa of the world as compared to
the position of women under heathendom. While ln the latter woman was
simply a chattel of her husband, in
the former she had all the afreet ion:
all fhe money and in these days of
tailor made gartilenis. nearly all the
Clothes thai maji possesw-d. In a
few words Principal Sipprell then Introduced the lecturer.
.Mr. Howay at the outset said lhal In
dealing wilh legal matters, there- was
apt to be a certain technicality of
language, which he would endeavor to
avoid and make every word he uttered
as Intelligible as possible. Law was
composed of two parts, ihe written
and the unwritten. That, which was
unwritten naturally existed first and
was followed by the written. In England the unwritten law was divide"!
into two parts���common law and
equity, and in these were cystalized
the common sense of the British people. Common law at the outset, started in a very broad way and this was
gradually narrowed down by prece-
denl following precedent till the law
became S burden and led to the formal ion of the court of equity or natural Justice. Equity tool: the kernel
oui of the common law as required
and thai was moulded and formed by
thi' various federal, provincial and
municipal bodies. Common law- placed   women   under  the  same'  status  as
ihe- women in the biblical taw, as
having no legal existence apart from
ini husband. It therefore followed;
1.���That ii wife had no power io
make contracts. 2.���Tha' inasmuch as
bit Identity was merged in that of he-r
husband, ber property went with b.
The law remained thus until the year
1882 X" matter whal property a
'.em...ii, had ai the time ol ber marriage iin' husband could claim i', and
ii remained his after his wife's
death     When the husband died   the
propertj    went   In   hla   n-lati'ins.     Tu
offset Hns aparrent Injustice, howevei
the wile could commit no wrong for
which Bhe could In- made in suffer
punishment. If sin' legally transgres
seel the husband bail to bear the
punlshmenl and root tic bill. Equity
Btepped in and undertook to set matters straight and grive woman the
right tn secure property and also to
make bargains, thus ameliorating ber
condition as it had exisieei under common law
in 1S82 in England the- married woman's property act was passed anil in
1X87 a similar enactment was made: in
Canada,   which   mighl   be     called    the
Magna Charter uf woman's liberty.
n    was    tpunded nn a new principal
and arirne-el lhal there was no reason
why taallied women should mil have
a perfect right to huh! property in
her own name and do with It as she
foil disposed. The' new law also
made ,. married   woman   responsible
for In i own actions, lnsli'nd uf holding iln husband responsible. Again
the new enactment gave woman the
right in money or wages earned by
hexsell \\'li'-n a woman died without. \
ii will and wlthoul children ibe husband got lie- whole property Just, as
if was ., hundred years ago. With
regard to woman being responsible for
her own actions the law said thai
her husband was equally responsible.
Pp iii the year 1893, a woman had
nn authority in sign a contract nf any
kind unless she was a property owner.
Ill 1900 ibe law was changed and wo-
niau itis given the power lo sign contract whether she held property or
'ihe lecturer then took up the sub-
n-i i n' woman's dower. At one time
ihat if- pended entirely on the wording
of tin   marriage   service,   ami   only
dowered the wife wilh one third of
Hu- property (he husband hud at lhe
lime uf their marriage. If the wife
���died ll reverted to the husband. The
new act if there were nn will gave nne
third uf ihi' property to the wife if
there were children, and half If there
were no children, if there were
a will in lhis province lhe wife had no
right to dower and the husband could
���ellsposi of property as he wlsheel. In
Nova Scotia and Ontario the wife was
'entitled tO dower Whether there was
ii will or not. The existing law mi
ihe subject, the lecturer spoke of in
strong terms as ii mosl Iniquitous one
as it gave the husband full right lo
dispose uf all properties as he thought
fit without consulting Ihe wife. A
question which often arose was, who
had a light to the property accumulated dining marriage, nnd as it stood
at the present lime tho husband had
full power to absorb all. This was
not as it should be. Women might
often be compared to the Illlie lug be.
side the big schooner, she supplied the
power.    (Applause.)
The next nnestlon spoken of was
the  home.    Men  in   business  did  not
safeguard the home sufficiently, They
do so by taking
���    ������_  ���
the ladle        t . tl
audlec A to allow the
main made
-   : estate     as    in
that '-a.-'-, in case nf death the wif--
and family could not claim a ceut of
��� he amount Insured for. See that the
policy was made nn' so speclfially to
'le- arife and children, or to one or the
other. With leirard to the subject Of
deserted wives the speaker stated
that, notices which were often in-
serted In the papers to the effect that
the husband was not responsible foi
the wife's debt, were of no use. The
question must be first settled as m
who was to blame for the separation.
If the wife was deserted by the husband, she could claim uy to one third
of his income, governed by the rise
and fall of his Income. Further, the
husband must rapport "h" wife even
while she was suing him in the
courts ante) eventually pay all her legal
expenses. On the subject nf protection against drunken husbands, firs*

He is a nocturnal animal, walking
abroad at night and sleeping iu tbe
daytime. lie moves with sudden
rushes and without any noise what
ever. His odd name was given him
from the queer noise he makes, which
is something like the noise you would
make to start a horse with. Tlie male
gecko is of a gray color, so near the
shade of tbe old walls and rocks
among which he makes his bome that
he can barely be seen.
Chinese Children.
Tbe education of their children is a
matter of uo small interest to the affectionate Chinese mothers. They
watch the little one from the day he is
born, to note superstitious signs. Let
him cry lustily, and he will live long,
say tbe old granules. If he teetbs or
walks ton soou he will grow up unlovable In disposition. At first the little Chinese nre uot very attractive objects, presenting rather a scaly appearance, due to tile custom of not washing them lest tbey catch cold. A month
after his birth tlie hoy's head is shaved.
A great feast is prepared and celebrated, the child now receiving bis "milk

name is changed, as it is once more

There is a curious legend lu regard to
Deathman's place, Southwark, London.
An ingenious old writer says that the
name originated as follows: "lu Dead-
man's place, at St. Maryoverus. a manservant being buried at seven of the
clocke iu the morning, and the grave
standing open for more dead Commodities, at foure of the clocke in the same
evening he was gut up alive againo by
a strange miracle, which, to be true
and eertaine. hundreds of people can
testlfle that sawe hlin acte like a country Ghoste in his white peackled
sbeete." However, a more exact historian explained that the name was
merely a corruption of Desmond's

She Ih Steudlnm In Affection For Her
The Chinese mother Is very fond of
her children. She is happy in their
company and spenils much time car-
lug fur them, in a Chinese family the
birth of a child i.s a greater event than
witli other orientals. Long before the.
child is born the mother perforins rites
and ceremonies to propitiate the god>
that her child may bo a boy. After
birth the little follow is wrapped in
old rags ami in winter is sometimes
put in a bag of sand sewed close
around its neck to keep the little one
warm. Great rejoicing follows the
birth if tbe child is a boy; otherwise
there Is an uir of chastened disappointment. But good Chinese parents
make the best of their little lassies,
becoming very fond and even proud of
them. I have known more than oue
Chinese father to exhibit his toddling
wee girl for approval, though always
wilh the customary national verbal
deprecation of what belongs to oue.
Indeed, this evidence of excessive
courtesy may be fouud everywhere in
this Strange land. It is good form to
vilify what is miue aud laud what is
thine. "My good for nothing family
are all still troubling the earth with
their presence. How is your honorable family?"���Pilgrim.

Funny Blunders.
A  famous  sculpture' group recently
exhibited in Glasgow represents Aduin
I uud   Eve  after  they   laid   left   l-'.den.
: Evo,, lu despair, lies at Adam's feet.
Through a mistake an Intelligent attendant placarded it with this description: "Motherless."   Al tlie same exhl-
i bition was a Bleeping nymph, hy a well
known sculptor, which by another mistake appeared in the catalogue as "Mrs
-*���," greatly to the horror of Glasgow.
A Sunday school hoy recently gave
this account of the prophet Elijah:
"Elijah, tbe prophet, was carried into
heaveu by a whirlwind, and the ehil-
divn stood up anil cried: 'Co up, thou
baldhead! Go up, thou baldhcnd!' And
before he went up he divided the Red.

Many persons who haver an interest
lu archaeology will be surprised to
know that all the mummies to be seen
ln museums have not been taken from
faraway tombs in Egypt or other eastern lands. Well preserved mummies
have occasionally been taken from the
ruins of the cliff dwellers in the mountain canyons of Arizona and in New
Mexico and southern California. These
mummies, though very poor specimens
of tlie mummifying art, are considered
great treasures by scientists, because
they give the anthropologist a vague
idea of thc strange people who hnd tlie
earliest civilization on the American
con fluent. The best of them are ul-
most entirely Ignorant of who the
Aztecs and Toltecs were, how they
looked and lived and why they have
been so entirely obliterated from tlie
face of the earth.
The reason for this Ignorance Is found
in the fact that no satisfactory remuius
of the dead Aztecs have been foun.l.
These people were cremntlonists, nud
tbey probably burled household effects
with the dead, leaving little or nothing
for tlie scientist to build a theory upon.
Frequently a party of explorers In the
valleys of Arizona will come upon seal
ed jars of burned bone dust.

Flower- In  the Shmle.
It is not unusual to hear a complaint that one's yard has no sun,
and therefore flowers cannot be raised.
But there are a large number of flowers that prefer shade to sunshine lu
summer. The begonia is of this class.
Those who have north walls or fences
may have great beauty during the summer by setting out the different kinds
of begonias. Even the gloxinia, the
nehimenos and similar hothouse plants
bloom splendidly throughout the summer season when grown ou the north
side of walls.
