COROT'S RUSTIC HABITS.
flow tbe .*.*.������ C��me .o Lire Hie t_i��i
uf n  reiiMimt.
Corot's father was a little, dry, thin
old man, whose correct appea ranee,
precise gestures und short speech were
In singular contrast to tbe geniality
md jovial ways of Camllle. He wns
lhe typical business man. lie wished
his sou to go Into business and apprenticed him to a wholesale cloth merchant Camllle, who dreamed only of
painting, conceived a violent aversion
to commerce and seized every opportunity to escape from the shop ami go
up to his room to copy drawings, His
employer was very ilissntistied with
him aud complained to his father, wbo
reprimanded hlm severely. At last one
day the young man did not go to business and told his father that he must
follow his vocation, even if it brought
bim misery. Seeing that nothing could
alter this decision, "Very well," tbe
I'ather answered. "I wlll give you 1,200
Crimes iinuually-uot a centime more���
and you will make the best you can
qf It."
Camllle leaped for joy. He Immediately made preparations for departure, loft home and installed himself
in the little hamlet of Morvan, at a
farrier's whose numerous family was
crowded Into tbe only room, which
was the forge. Corot there contracted
the habits of tbe peasantry, which he
retained ever after, lie had no needs,
lived only for his art and found complete happiness In it.
For a long time Corot remained at
the farrier's, sntislied with the coarse
food, happy in his liberty and feeling
rich with bis modest allowance. Endowed with robust health and being
Jovial by nature, be always sang while
he worked, and bis gayety never deserted bim.
At his father's death Corot found !
himself possessed of a revenue of -40.-
000 francs, but this opulence did not
ehainge his rustic habits. He continued
his simple nnd laborious life. Always
ap before dawn, he put*on the peasant's clothes that he wore all his life,
ate his soup, lit his pipe and with his
box ln his hand nml his easel on his
shoulder started for his work, his sonorous voice ringing out joyously.���Q.

w  Watch.
The bewitched watch ii a trick
ihat proves puzzling to many people
Borrow a watch from any one in
the company. Ask all your friends
to Hand around in a circle. Hold
the thatch to one person's ear and
���ay: "It is going. Is that not sol-*"
Ee will say, "Yes, that's so."
Hold it io the next person's ear
and say: ,fNow it is not going. Isn't
that so?" He will say, "That's so,
for I can't hear it going."
So all around the circle. One
person, will find it going. The next
one will find it not going.
Tlie trick is done by means of t
loads-tone which you hold in one
hand. When you want the watch
to 6top going transfer it to the hand
containing the loadstone, which will
immediately rtop the nTov#ment of
the works.
When you want it to go take it
out of that hand and shake it gentlj
while doing so. It will start to going again.	
Game of Bookbinder*.
In the game of bookbinders t_M
leader stands in the center of a cir-
ele. Each one holds out his hands,
palms upward, and upon them t
book is placed.
The leader then goes around tbe
circle, catching up tbe books in
turn and trying with each book to
strike the hands that hold it
Each one tries to withdraw hit
hands before they are struck.
The same leader continues until
be succeeds in striking some one'i
hands, whereupon the victim musi
take li is place.
If one's hands are withdrawn and
the book falls on the urourjd
th. ugh a false movement on the
part of the leader, it counts th..
���Shift.	
Favorite Royal Horses.
Kin? Edward and Queen Alexandra show their affection for theii
horses in a curious way. When s
favorite dies its hoofs are cut c*f!
and polished, and the horse's name
is inscribed on each hoof. These j
are placed in a row in one of the
harness rooms at Sandringham. On
the wall above are photographs oi
prints of the owner of the hoofs.
Their majesties have their favorite
dogs as well as their favorite horses.
Against a wail at the back of their
residence at Sandringham may b�� .
aeet a stone, "Tc the memory v,
ieaj eld Rover."

ASSISTED IMMIGRATION
The old question of the unwisdom
of permitting charitable societies "at
homo" li assist "Incapables" and "un-
employables" to emigrate to Canada,
Is brought up again by a very fnank
article in the London Times from a
tspecial correspondent lately in this
country. He found many fellow countrymen who fall into these undesirable categories during his stay in the
Dominion���a stay which covered the
country from East to West and included much study of American cities
as well���and he canu- to the conclusion that they were mo.*i of them Londoners. Of course, he does not mean
thai all Londoners were like this; but
only that thost of "the degenerate
'Cockney type," made up the greater
share of these ������failures" in the new
land. Bul we had 'better quote his
own words:
It Is th.'.*.- people who are the curse
of the Empire, who are the cause of
the ".No English Need Apply" advertisements, who are doomed to fail
wherever they go, who are, and must
remain, helpless, shiftless wrecks. For
many yours  thv  philanthropists,    the
In   Ham bur*   270   letters   and   pom
eards nre mailed for every Inhabitant
j per year, whereas the number per tn
! habitant of the whole Oerman emplrs
i Is but fifty-six.
Tlie value of tho total product of the;
German automobile factories for the
past flve years Is stated to have been
as follows: Iu 1902, $2,(513,000; 1903.
$8,808,000; 1904, $9,520,000; 1905, $18,*
660,000, and 1906, $2a^,800.000.
Finding a canal bridge too low to
allow passage of his barge, a Oerman
jklpper Induced 800 grenadier guard*.
to step ou board and act as ballast
thus lowering the vessel ln the water
snd passing the bridge ln safety.
A novelty which has been submitted
to the police prefecture of Berlin for
approval is an automobile hearse. It
Is of tbe approved type, differing only
from the ordinary funeral vehicle In
not being horse drawn. The new
hearse created much curiosity as lt

the "-something' has taken the form
of assisted emigration, under the pitifully mistaken idea that clearer skies

a. useless to a useful member of the
community, perhaps, there may be a
great change, for, after all, there Is

they are a burden on communities that

necessary "tu-penny." It is Idle to
pretend that they are reached by the
Immigration agencies of the Canadian
Government; for our immigration
a-*, nts are particularly anxious to discourage the coming of just such types.
They are nelthi agricultural laborers
nor domestic servants; and to these
two classes are our Immigration efforts
now confined. Vet they arrive. And
'.he London Times man has Seen for
himself how utterly helpless and out
of place they are in a new country
where condition- press more heavily

To the Sporting Editor:  It may noi
be out of place on the part of a loyal
supporter to address a few candid re
marks  to the  management,    re    lasl
Friday's  game   between    the    Sham-
nocks and   Rovers,     I;   Is   to be    supposed   that   the   Hovers  still   have the
B,   C.  League championship   in   view,
and  on   Friday  they  lost a    valuable
! point, which may have ibeen very  use-
! ful later on.    Now, as to ihe game on
j Friday.    The  goal keeper did     -very
I tiling that   was   asked of  him,  which
j amounted to very little and he has to
j be tried yi t before he can be declared
I a success.   It is very difficult to make
I a goalkeeper out of a forward,    fhe
I full hacks are a very good club pair,
; and I prefer them to any I have seen
! playing  in   this  province,     They   are
j both sure kickers and tacklers, speedy
land  quick   at   recovering   themselves.
j The right hack is showy, but  tin- left
although not so dashing In his movements, is very effective.   The left half
I hack should not have    been    on    ihe
field.   The centre half was trying all
| the time  and   with    a    little    timely
1 coaching from those behind him may
I yet   become a  useful   member of  the
I team.     Hut   at  present   he     lacks     a
I knowledge of the game, ami i* found
i ��
ver; <i:i.n out of his position, thereby
! allowing  the   opposing   forwards     to
; break  through,    The  righi   hall   is   i
! good   tackier, can   use   his   head   and
feet  with  good   effect,  defends   well,
but has no placing ability, and gives!
the wing in front of him a lot ol useless running about. The outside lefl Is
