m SUMS REQUIRED
School Trustees Tabulate Extraordinary Expenditure.
RATEPAYERS VOTE JANUARY
Nearly   $100,000 Wanted   for   Public
Schools and $176,000 fer High
School Purposes. '
Two hundred and seventy-four
thousand dollars , odd ls the sum
which the people will be asked In
Jaauary to pay by way of extraordinary expenditure by the school board.
TU* estimate was drawn up by a
committee of the school board and
accepted by the full board yesterday
afternoon. In recommending to tho
council that this sum should be incorporated in three by-laws, and presented to the people at the time of
the general elections, the trustees
are acting simply as ratepayers. Steps
will be taken by tbe city council to
secure a petition signed hy the necessary 10 per Cent, of the ratepayers to
allow them to submit the proposed
by-laws, and It will then be left for
the people to vote on them in
January.
This large sum of $274,790 demanded by the school trustees is necessitated, they claim, by the past and
probable growth of the city.
For convenience It will be distributed
among three by-laws made u;t as follows. First, a by-law for public
school purposes. This will contain
an item of 140,000 for an eight room
school to be built probably on the
Lord Kelvin site, fifteen thousand
will be needed for the extension of
tbe Sapperton school, and $11,110 to
pay off the balance owing on tho
Sixth avenue site. A small sum of
$2180 Is devoted to excess expenditure
on tbe Queensborough school, aad
$-0,000 is put aside for the purchase
of a new school site. With the addition of $11,590 for costs, whicb Includes the discount at which thq
bonds were sold last year, and will
probably be sold this year, the total
for public school purposes amounts
to $99,790.

IS THI8 EVIDENCE
OF 8ILENT TRAGEDY
What may turn out to be the evidence of a silent tragedy was discovered yesterday by some government workmen engaged ln laying
down a sidewalk between the Brunette mills and Millside. These men
found a heap of clothes, bedding and
other necessaries with a bundle or
letters written in a foreign hand, a
watch and an oilskin overcoat lying
near their work.
Chief Wilkie, of the provincial
police, went down to Investigate, but
no further traces of the mlkstng
man were discovered. The letters
have been brought back to the head
office, and seem to be written in Finnish or some kindred dialect.

beginning of the year to the end of
November there have been collected
ln fines $6436.20, as against $4322
during tbe same period of 1910. it
was also shown that tbere were on

.182 Homer street, Mrs. 8. Goodall waa
rudely Jostled by a big towering maa,
wbo flnslly   wrested   her chatelaine

Goodall lost $7 which abe carried   la
tbo bag.
i *3C*wooly thing that I saved," ghe
���aid, "waa the handle of the bag. I
held on to It In spite of the fact that
I was horribly frightened, hut tho
brute tore it away from me."
Usually Mrs. Goodall, who is suffering from nervous trouble, I* accompanied when she ha* occasion to
leave the house by her friend, Mr*.
J. Brown. This time Mr*. Brown wa*
busy and Mrs. Goodall left tbe hou**
aloae.
"I was going home after making a
purchase In a downtown store;" she
said, "when a man came rushing up
behind and after snatching at my
wrist tore away at my bag. Ho got lt
- after a While and I was so frightened
that I nearly fainted."
Mrs. Goodall haa not recovered
from tho shock and It may hd necessary for her to go to a hospital. .   .
The man who held her up must
hare been six feet tall by the description which she gives. He had a cap
on and wore a short dark overcoat.
Sbe was sure that he was a white
man. .
-City detectives have been advised
of tbe holdup, but they have failed .to
make any arrest in connection'with it,
Those who attended ��� the concert
given by the Mountain Ash choir last
evening did their best to make up by
enthusiastic appreciation for the
Bmallness ot their number, it was a
good oncert. ��� I
'lhe opening piece, "The Soldier's !
Chorus," brought out, to the full the
splendid volume of sound of which j
tue choir 1* capable.    The' familiar
"Old Black Joe." half-happy, half-re-'
gretful, .stirred the heart   like    sad-
sweet, fireside memories.   Tben with !
a swing the singers dashed into the
laughing "Gypsy Chorus," and mirth
prevailed. t      j
Perhaps the   soloist to score   the
greatest success in the first baflhof i
this program, yraa Mr, Harry L*wla, I
whose glorious tenor voice   Is    the'
delicate Instrument of every motion,
every delicate turn of feeling whica
a song   demands.   "How    Vain - la
Man," he sang, only to be recalled
by aa encore, that would not be denied, to charm everyone with "The
Dear Little Shamrock." Welsh, though
he ls, Mr. Lewi* endowed theso simple
words with alt the peculiar charm of
Ireland.
Mr. Steves Jenkins In "Good Company" also achieved a notable Success, while Mr. Hopkins, who sang
"Annie Laurie" by request, did not
mar the tuneful simplicity of the fine
old song by fancied airs, that a stager
of leas taste or skill might ' have
chosen to employ.
At this stage of tha program Mr.
Edgar Jones, accompanist, played
Chopin's Waltz ln B Flat, aad then,
as an encore Paderewski's lightly
tripping "Minuet." Mr.Godfrey Price
saqg "The Burgler" ln a fine baas
voice that set the listener's blood,
leaping through, his veins,- as the
Hlsst
make. Several of those present objected to this ruling, so politics it
was.
The First Speaker.
Mr. Rumble was the first speaker,
and he dwelt for thirty minutes on
his record as representative of the
municipality and on a few of the
planks of hiB platform in the present
fight. He criticized the present way
of opening ud new streets and advocated a plan where a sti eet once started was to be stumped and graded
at one time. He also advocated tne
use of gravel on the streets which, he
claimed, while not as substantial as
crushed rock, was cheaper, and the,
money spent would cover a large area |
He favored the scheme of dredging
Burnaby Lake and making it a pleasure spot. The B.C.E.R. franchise
was gone over, and the speaker remarked that the whole affair had
been bungled from start to finish.
He Was given a good hearing by
the large attendance.
Councillor Coldicott.
.Councillor Coldicott was given the
same length of time in which to address the meeting as had been given
to the other speaker. He told his
hearers that the municipality needed
a better engineering staff to cope
with the increasing work ia that department.
Mr. Coldicott attacked the present
policy of the council in regard to
the awarding of contracts on street
work, mentioning that the present
plan gave the local mmi absolutely no
chance to bid on the work. He favored the idea of dividing them up
and giving actual settlers a show
Instead of Southern European laborers doing the work .
The B.C.E.R. came ln for a grilling
aa a grand wind-up.   The Speaker told
Blggar,    of   South Westminster.
F.'obbed and Property Damaged���
Provincial   Poilce.
".     ���*'*.*    ....,-.   ����������-.- ���
~***r ���
About 4 o'clock this morning the
premises of Mr. li. B. Blggar, of Sout.i
Westminster, were burglariously entered. A shotgun and some loose casi
were taken, while the robbers did
damage to property to the extent of
$100.
Mr. Biggar states that the thieves
took out one of the top windows and
entered by this means. They went
to the cash register, which was in
the store, but apparently did not
know how to open it. Accordingly
they tried unsuccessfully to break it
open. "In any case," chuckled Mr.
Biggar, "there was nothing in it." The
robbers then stole the above mentioned goods and left on hearing movements above.
"I notified Mr. Wise, the policeman
here," complained Mr. Blggar, "and
rang up the headquarters of the provincial police in New Weatmlnster.
The latter did absolutely nothing.
They did not even come over here."
Interviewed yesterday afternoon,
Mr. Wilkie. chief of the provincial
police, explained that this matter was
within the Jurisdiction of the municipal police of Surrey. Any interference on his part would be purely complimentary, he *aid, although, of
course, in any serious case the provincial police were always ready to
lend every assistance in their power.
"As to this case," he wound up, "Mr.
Biggar rang me up around 10 o'clock,
and the robbery took place early ln
the morning. Also, he had notified
the local policeman, so, in any case,
what was the use of my going down
there?"

Prince Chun's regency a smooth one.

THE   DELHI   DURBAR.
Tuesday the Day Fixed for tha "Recaption  of tha  Overlord."
The date of the Durbar ia set down
as Tuesday next. On that day King
George, Queen Mary, and their court
will be the central 'figures in the most
gorgeous pageant in the world's history.' The word Durbar means the
"reception of native rulers by their
overlord," but on this occasion it includes <an actual coronation. In the
presence bf representatives of his
millions 61 Hindu and Mohammedan
subjects King George will be crowned
as Emperor of India, and queea
Mary aa Empress. Delhi ls the an-
dent capital of the Mogul rulers of
India, and although Queen Victoria
and King Edward were proclaimed
rulers of India on the occasion of
their accession to the British throne,
the ceremonies were not to be compared for impressivenesp wltb those
that Delhi will see on Tuesday. Never
before did a British monarch visit
his Indian Empire; not since the day*
of tbe Mogul dynasty has there been
a coronation there. The event is onu
that can confidently be expected to
make a tremendous Impression ln u
country wbere magnificent and gorgeous ceremonies are valued more
highly than anywhere else on earth,
and where the idea of power, apart
from overwhelming display, can hardly be grasped.
"The Gate of the Kings."
The Royal party made but two stops
on tbe way to Calcutta, one at Malta,
und the other at Aden, where AbDa3,
the Khedive of Egypt, greeted his actual though not his official, sovereign.
The landing at Calcutta gave the
great princes of India their welcome
to their emperor. The Calcutta program Included a pageant that was one
of the most remarkable sights of the
whole visit, and a parade of 20.000
school children. The entry to Delhi
was most significant. In the wall
there ls a gate called "The Gate of
the Kings," through which the unci, ni rulers used to enter. It was
lust used in 1857 by the rebel leader
who set himself up as 'King of
Delhi." It is a tradition that no one
but a king must pass under this archway,  even   royal   princes' being   ex-

On the Historic "Ridge."
For twenty days the king will remain ln Delhi, receiving the foreign
princes and other notables, and holding levees at which humbler subjects from among the 236,000,000 people in India will be permitted to approach. There will be a notable program of sports, especially horse racing and polo, of which the Indians
are inordinately fond, and a grand review of some 90.000 troops. The
Durbar proper, or coronation, will be
held on Tuesday, in a huge amphitheatre erected on tho historic
"Ridge," where a handful of Britons
won undying glory in the days of the
Mutiny. The amphitheatre is outside the city, and a special line of
railway has been built to connect the
Hoyal quarter with the gieat temporary camp that will house the visitors, and with the city Itself. Here
the government wlll carry on a dairy,
a market, and other necessary conveniences, for it is to be borne in
mind that only great modern cities
like Wondon or New York or Paris
would be equal to the strain that the
Durbar would place upon them.
A Mighty Host.
The troops alone will number nearly, lf not quite, 9u 000, and the native
princes will have some 40,000 followers. The royal party and the tliose
specially invited will not exceed 400,
but there will be in addition some
12,000 European an.l American visitors. As to the multitudes of natives
wfiri are flocking to Delhi no estimatu
can be made, but they are great
enough to make the utmost demands
on the government that has been for
months making preparations for their
accommodation. Handling the traflc
for the coronation in London was a
trifle compared with making the arrangement for the Durbar, andjt is
even more important In India than in
England that there should be nothing
to mar the success of the ceremonies,
for the superstitious East would bo
keen to read ill-omen for the British
raj into any untoward circumstance.
- To One Durbar, $5,000,000.
lt has been estimated that the Durbar ceremonies will cost the Imperial government some $4,700,000, and
the provinces of India another million: ancT the splendor of the cere-
miunles can be surmised from the fact
that the brilliant Durbar in honor
of King Edward's coronation, gorgeous as T?',vas, did not cost more than
a million dollars. There will be a
considerable drain, too, on King
George's private purse, for he took
with him hundreds of gifis for distribution among the princes, nnd afi
those who have done anything or
will do anything to make the greal
event a success; but there Is no doubt,
in the mind of any Imperialist thut
the effect of the coronation on India
will be worth ten times what it is expected to cost.

Spiking Is Obsolete.
The Manchester Guardian says'
"One reads In the war news that the
Italians found the guns ln the Tripoli
forts 'spiked.' If that is meant literally they must have been guns of
mainly antiquarian Interest. The expression, 'spiking guns,' is a survival
from the day when all that was necessary to put a gun out of action
(provided, of course, that you had access to it) was a large nail, or splits,
and a hammer. You simply drove the
nail into the touch-hole at the breech.
If the nail was long enough to turn
round at the end, on the bottom of
bore, so much the better. It is just
as simple, perhaps simpler, to put ,\
modern gun out of action. All you
want Is a hammer. The breech block
of the modern gun Is held close by
screw threads; after the breach block
Is shut on the shell, a turn or two or
three Inches engages the threads. By
knocking the burr on these threads
you prevent them engaging. Any attempt to flre the gun without the
breech hlock being perfectly clcs.^l
would, of roui'Ee, be mate iai assistance to thc e&enu.

Great Olympia   Motor  Show. Proved
Small  Cheap Car Popular.
Although,  comparatively   speaking,
only a few of the motor cars used in
Canada   are of   English   origin, the
great majorljty of the imported cars
being manufactured    in    the United
States, the comments which an expert, Mr. John Proileau, makes on tha
great Olympia Motor Show,   in   the
London Mall, ought to be interesting
to Canadian automobile owners   and
those who Intend to become owners
next year.    The outstanding feature
of the show was the proof It offered
that the day cf the big car was past-
There were many big cars on exhibition, and probably there will always
be large, expensive cara In   use   for
touring purposes; but the day has gon
past when the cars of   great   power
are occupying tho chief place ln   the
calculations   of   the   manufacturers.
The small, cheap car is the car of
the day and of the future, according
to this expert.   It ls not only the car
for the man who cannot afford a big
car, but for 90 per cent, of the car
buyers who could afford a dozen big
cars if they wanted them.
Good, Cheap Cars.
The Daily Mall gives a list of some
20   cars,   of   British,    French   and
American make, that can be bought
with full equipment at sums ranging
from  $1000 to $1500, and every one
of them a thoroughly good car. us the
expert can testify from   his   own experience or from  the experience  of
friends  who have  tested them.    Another list containing about 20 different  makes  includes  cars  costing   up
to $2000, all  recommended.    In    tbs
second List no    American    cars    are
mentioned, not because there are nit
many good American cars to be pur-
clmsed at this price, hut because the
writer does not happen to have had
personal    experience of them.    Only
one    ot these 40 cars, and that    an
Americun   car,   selling  at  $1100,   lias
25  horse power, and  most of    them,
ln  both classes, have only 10 or    12
horse power.   This ls the feature that
the Mull's expert dwells    upon,   the
practical  disappearance of the heavy
car of great horse power.   He points
out that a few years ago great power
was required if the car was io get up
Any speed, but steady Improvements
ln  the engine have    made    the    15
.horse power car of today as powerful
as  the   50   horse  power  car  of  five
years or so ago.
What to Pay for a Car
From $5,000 to $10,000 was considered no great price for a good car a I
few years ago.   Today for $2,000 one ,
can purchase a car as good in every j
respect as the $10,000 car of five or
six   yi nrs  ago.    There  is  just    one
qualification to this   statement,   ami
that only applies to a comparison be-
tween the $2,000 and the $10,000 car
of today.   That Is unnecessary and ex-1
t. ep.ie speed.    Tho powerful car may
b* ahle to make fifty or sixty mile* j
an hour on country roads, and    take
hills In its stride.   Since the law pun-1
ishes drivers who attempt this speed. 1
th>o si&ertorlty of tbe   powerful   car
amounts to little or nothing after all, |
, and for all    practical    purposes    the j
* Daily Mail writer asserts that the man !
who pay8 more than $2 000 for a motor car ls paying more than he needs. 1
He goes so far as to insist that even |
were the prices thc same, the better
eur of the two is the light car.
The Good Light Car.
It will give sufficient speed for all
or-.tinary purposes;  it is just as well
made, just, as comfortable and reliable.    It will cost less to keep, and it
will last longer.    That the first cost
or u motor car Is not the most   important   item is   now pretty well recognized,   lt is the question   of   up-'
Keep that tells the tale of expensive-
1H-8S.   Tires, gasoline and oil are the
chief .Hems of expenditure.   The heavy car, that Is to say, the high-priced
powerful   car,  is   harder on   all   of
.them.   It requires far more gasoline,
more .oil, and ls deadly ln its wear on
tires.   In fact, the writer tells of ono
friend whose fad ls high-power cars
wbo spends $2500 a year on tires. On
the other hand, the owner of the 15
or 20 horsepower car has a right to
complain   if   his    yearly   tire    bills
amount to more tban $150. ' Of late ,
years  there   bas   been  a   great   improvement ln the matter of reducing
expense on ti'.e account, due to the
better distribution ot weight, g.eater
lightness   of    construction   au.i    Improved   brakes,   the   last   being    the
most important factor in leugtuening
the life of tires.
The  First Conspiration.
Although he is a champion of tho
lOW-priced car, Mr. 1-rioleau says the
tue purchaser must demand quality
before everything else. There are
goo.l and bud cars at all prices, and
one is more apt, perhaps, to get a bad
car ior uttle money than for niucn
money. Tho point is that thero are,
as be says, at least 40 manufacturers, Hritish. French and American,
who make .cars of extreme quality
and sell them at prices ranging from
$1000 to $2000, so that there ought
not to be much risk "connected with
the purchase if a man will take the
time and trouble to make a few enquiries before buying. With the right
car. he need ast expect to bave any
lenewals, except tires, for three or
four yeSrs, and then only such small
items as sparking plugs, valve springs
and carburetter floats. The other
parts of tbe car are now so well
made that they may be expected to
last aa Jong as tbe car itself. These
are the chief lessons empnasized by
the great London show that has Jus:
closed.

and balsam forests suitable for pulpwood. The twenty-flve pulpmills ln
Quebec reported the consumption of
fifty-seven per cent of tbe total for
Canada, or twenty-three thousand
cordo more than in 1901). Ontario,
likewise increased the amount consumed ln Its lifteen pulp mills 'iy
over twenty thousand cords and used
over one-third of the total consumption, forming with Quebec, 92 per
cent of the total. The mills of Nova
Scotia consumed nearly thirty thousand cords. New Brunswick used
barely one-fifth as much as in 1909,
contributing in that' year fifteen per
cent of the total. In 1910 the amount
used was only two per cent 0/ th';
total, due chiefly to the closing .if
one large plant. The average value
of pulpwood In 1910 was six dollars
per cord, and Quebec was the one
province in which the price w;is Ies3

this province fell off thirty-live cents
to five dollars and a half per cord.
The hi;-hest price raid was In Ontario

Mara Women Dia Than Men.
Regarding the remarkable tact that
ln Quebec women Tall more readily
victims to the disease than men, the
commissioners say that fof the six
winter taonths the women of the
provinoe, as a rule, spend most of
their time Immured Indoors, and to
preserve warmth tbe houses are too
frequently sealed against any fresh
air. Even in the summer it is the
custom to keep the blinds down and
the windows closed, ln order to make
the houses moderately cool. They
mention the fact that the high blrtli
rate among French-Canadian wome.i
may also be a factor, since, following
childbirth, the resistance to infectiou
of any sort ls lowered. There*"!* also
to be considered tbe fact that the
larger families of th6 French-Canadians makes necessary the huddling
together of many persons ln small
rooms, a condition that Is highly favorable to the development'of the tubercle bacilli. More than twice as
many French-Canadian women die of
tuberculosis, according to population,
as English women. Compared with
tlie Incidence of the disease fn the
male sex, tbat among the women fs
as 222 compared with 164. *
Climate and Disease.
As regards tbe relation of climate
to the disease, the. commissioners
find that, apart from the effects of
people keeping too much Indoors, lt
is an insignificant one. The disease is
slightly more prevalent In March than
in any other month of the year, and
is slightly less prevalent In September, October, November and December. They do not fail to point to the
probability of tbe germs of the disease, which manifests itself in the
spring and summer, having established themselves in tbe winter months.
Cold 'in itself ls not more favorable
to the growth of the bacilli tban heat,
and the report quotes approvingly the
words of Dr. Trudeau, who says: '"It
is not so 'much* where the consumptive lives as how he lives that is of
the most importance." The cllmat.)
of Quebec is not necessarily more favorable to the spread of the disease
than that of British Columbia.
A Very Ffigh Death Rate.
Just how serious the problem of
tuberculosis is for the province of
Quebec may be judged from the fact
that one-third of all the deaths In the
province, are attributed to It. It is
more deadly than all other infectious
diseases combined. Only infantile
diarrhoea of all specific diseases commits great ravages. In tuberculosis
more than half the victims fall between the ages of 15 und '*'A, and more
than one-third hetween the ages of
20 and 45. Only two states in the
Union, which keep accurate records
have a higher death rate; than any
other city on this continent or in the
British Isles, and In comparison with
seventeen civilized countries, Quebec
stands sixth as regards the death
rate from tuberculosis. A first long
stride toward improving her position
has been*made by the publication ot
the valuable report from which these
facts are taken.

to
U.
Ottawa, Dec. 6.���The Dominion
government has refused to intervene
in tbe censorship of motion pictures,
now under control of the various provincial governments of the country.
This was the reply made to the state
department ot the United Statea.
which, through Hon. J. G. Foster.
United States consul' general for Canada, asked that the drastic order of
tbe Ontario board el censors wltb
reference to their refusal to allow the
exhibition of Alms showing the
American flag, be annulled.
According to Hon. Mr. Foster   tbe.
reports    of    outward., manifestation
against the American flag are greatly
exaggerated.
In view of the refusal of the Dominion to take action, there seems to
be no relief for tbe picture men as
the American consul general can not
deal with a provincial government iu
a question of this kind.

Anxiety In Landon. f
London. Dec. '6,-7-Much anxiety ls
felt In official eirdtes over the coming
Durbar ceremonies. Before the King
left England there were many persons to whom his visit to India did
not seem advisable because of tbe
many outrages that had occurred recently ln that country. This feeling
has been revived by news of fires in
Delhi, although there is no proof of
the fires having been of incendiary
origin.

evening Mr,
Price sang wltlj Mr.
Lewis the duet "Love in<J War,"
which strengthened the good opinion
already formed of. him.
"The Italian Salad" Is a sort of
hotch-potch of musical terms, a very
kaleidoscope of emotions, ftnd is accordingly very difficult to sing. The
choir, however..ran off this tour-deforce ln shades of expression without
an effort, leaving the audience marvelling at the facility with which they
accomplished the feat. Twice more
did the choir appear in full, and twice
more did they charm their hearers
completely. In "Little Church" they
carried, their hearers back to the old
places.where they were born, and
���'raised sweet memories of simple
.things that all hold dear. Very different was "Tyrol," their rendering ot
which has been described so frequently of late In these columns.
Tbe muley cow remarked to the hen,
As she masticated her cud
(That ls, the cow did):    "Well, what
then?
You quit and your name ls mud.

And I'm given my stable and grub;
But the parrot gets that much���anyway \

Not a dribble of milk, the dub!"
But tbe hired man remarked  to  the
pair,
"You get all that's comin' to you.

Which is better than you kin do.
You're necessary, but what's the use
Of bewallln' your dally part?

WHAT'S THB   USB
OF   SHAM?
Why  Not,
Her Majesty Lends no Countenance to
Extremes In  Modes.
It Is the prerogative of royalty to
have a style of its own, and in this
respect Queen Mary ls a notable example. Brought up from her earliest
years in a simple, unostentatious man
ner, she has never adopt* tl the extremes of fashion. Her taste has inclined her to graceful dignified
modes such as become her \fine,
handsome figure, and the examnje
which she sets proves an excellent
influence*Jn checking the taste for
bizarre styles.
The queen has never worn a hobble skirt, still less a harem costume
and In face of the persistent and almost universal attempt to fashion ar- ���
biters and leaders to induce women
to array themselves in frocks of the
scantiest materials. Her majesty
held to her own mode of reasonably
ample skirts, and has thereby won
the gratitude of British manufacturers. Last May, when the queen's
dislike of the light, scanty skirts
was made known, court dressmalre^a
received back their clients' costume*
in hot baste to put an extra brestb , J
into the skit ti. Some grimabM, at *""
thf trouble and *-(fisfli-rangaj��eft
which this caused'in the worktoomb,
but time has shown how wiselV"%iii
the queen's Influence dilected not
only towards tbe discountenancing of
an extreme and awkward mode, but to
promoting increased trade in dress
stuffs. ,    ���
The new fashion was reducing costumes to a minimum of material
manufacturers and drapers were b��-
ignning to flnd that the quality df
goods ordered was falling off, and
that, too, ln the Coronation season,
when most people were faying, mors,
I new'clothes than usual ind record"
sales were anticipated. It the (pipelt's
influence did not kill the scanty skirt,
It certainly stemmed the tide of fash-
ion towards greater extremes, and
put many thousands of pounds into
the pockets of both manufacturers
and retailers of ladles, dress
terlals.
The wisdom of the queen's example was shown by the aftermath of
unemployment among the makers of
ladles' underskirts which followed
the adoption of the hobble skirt. For
not only does that harrow garment
take a small amount of stuff to make
it. but it precludes the wearing ijjjof
skirts underneatb, knd the conse'
quence the Northampton girls tost
their occupation ln tbe making of underskirts and were put to less profitable work. The recent strike and
lockout of some 1200 girls followed.
Turning to headgear, the' queeh's
Influence has been entirely oft the
side of moderation as to size. Neither
Her Majesty nor Princess Mary ever
wears large hats. Many years ags
Queen Alexandria Introduced tha
most bewitchlngly becoming and
compact form of headgear known as
the Princess ' bon.iet. which ladles
have of late been content to leave to
the almost exclusive possession of
nurses. The light, small toque allowed in the train of the princess bsn-
; net and still holds its own. For
many years Queen Mary Uvored the
small toque above all otber kinds of
headgear, but she has recently
adopted a style of her own In a hat
of moderate size with a neat smalt
brim shading the eyes. Trimmed high
on the left side with flowers or ob-
irlch plumes, the queen's hat achieve j
a happy, medium hetween the closely-
otting toque and the modern broad-

Kir T. Lauder Brunton does not use
tobacco in any  form.    Other eminent

Needed a Week's Notice.
It is now fifty years since the British postofflce bank was established.
In tne early days there wero some
hazy ideas as to the rules of the bank.
"Shure," said an old woman at an
Irish branch. "Oi want to bank five
pounds. Can I draw it out quick if I
want it?" "Indade Mrs. O'Brady," replied the postmaster, "you can draw it
out to-morrow if you give me a wake's

Largest  of  Flowers.
The largest ol all the flowers of th��
the world is said to be the rafflesia, a
native of Sumatra, so-called ufter Sir
Stamford Raffles. This immensu plant.
says The Scientific American, is composed of flve round petals of a briok-,
ish color, each measuring a foot
across. These are covered with numerous irregular yellowish white swellings. The petals surround a cup nearly a foot wide, the margin of which
bears the stamens. The cup of the rafflesia is filled with a fleshy disk, the
upper surface of which is covered
with projections like miniature cows'
horns. The cup, when free from iti
contents, will hold about twelve
pints. The flower weighs about fifteeu
pounds and is very tnick, the petal*
being three-quarters of an inch.
An  Ancient  Bet.
Near the ancient country seat of
the Carews in Cornwall, England,
stands a quaint old church, to the
door of which are nailed lour horseshoes. These have been in their present position for nearly 600 years. A
former member of tlie Carew family
made a wager with a friend that he
would ride his horse a mile out to
sea in Tor Bay and back again. The
feat was more difficult than appears
at flrst sight, for the cross-currei��u
are dangerous, even for boats.
He won the bet, however, and nailed the four horse-shoes of inl steed to
the church-door to commemorate liu*
performance.

a draft of poison, but th* essential
element In the concoction bad lost Its

Inclination to self destruction, which
he ever af terers rd held In abhorrence,
even during blf'hopeless exile at St
Helena. When during bis first consulship one of bbl grenadiers killed
himself Napoleon Issued an order to
tbe guards:
"The Grenadier Gobaln bas killed
himself owing to a love affair. He
was otherwise an excellent soldier.
Tbe first consul commands that tbe
guards should be Informed tbat a soldier ought to conquer tbe grief and
bitterness or bis passions; tbat there
is tbe same courage ln enduring with
patience tbe pangs of the soai as In
facing bravely the fire of it battery. To
give oneself up to grief witbout resistance or to kill oneself to escape la to
abandon tbe field of battle before being
beaten." '
In a conversation with Goethe, Napoleon blamed the poet for allowing
Wert ber to commit suicide, and in 1810
be aald to O'Meara:
"Suicide ls tbe act of a gambler who
has lost everything or of a ruined
profligate. I bave alwaya thought that
