events of the past week.
For years the spirit of militarism
has been combated by the mas * *,
and for years Russia has depended
upon her country-bred half-savage citizens for the best army material.
This was all very well while the antl
militarists were In the minority, but
with the advance of time socialism
has spread Its creed of passive resistance to such an extent that the
szar has felt the need of a reinstatement of military favor to strengthen
his forces.
To set about engendering this spirit
the government officials conceived
the plan of emulating England and
her boy scout movements. The campaign was quietly set afoot. Circulars
' were printed and distributed broadcast. Memories of jast military glory
were invoked and every known chord
of popular appeal struck by those in
charge of the venture.
The result has been far from satisfactory, and, though the movement
has been in vogue for some time, lt
was not until this week that Nicholas
felt himself sufficiently strong to
risk an asstmblage of a national char-
acter. It was decided, however, to
risk the derision of the populace in
an effort to stir a spirit of emulation
among the children, and today troops
and battalions of boys ure forming in
St. Petersburg.
It seems, however, that the marshaling of these children was Ill-advised, for scarcely more than 0000
have answered the call���many of
these from those half-savage parts of
the great empire where fighting is
the only occupation'.
The socialist press Is Jubilant, and
even the government publications
maintain  an  ominous  silence.

Many people will remember two
monkey mascots wliich created some
excitement during the Boer wnr.
j They both belonged to volunteer
reg ments. The first was a monkey,
which Strathcona's Horse picked up
on the march. He wus n miserable
little object when they found him,
but he soon thrived under the care
of hia army friends. He went through
the war. and when the Canadians
returned to I/mdon they presented
him to the Zoo. But evidently his
heart was with the regiment, for he
pined, und died soon after.
The other monkey belonged to the
C.l.V.'s. and had the honor of riding through London on a gun-carriage. It whs given to the regiment
by the Oxford Light Infantry, nnd
saw Paardeburtr. Diamond Hill, and
many other stirring lights, through

Ottawa. Aug. 28.���Is tobacco a
food? And if not, ls It a necessity,
and if it how much should a man be
allowed a day? These questions are
ones not met with in everyduy life,
but they confronted the officials of
the department, of the Interior the
other clay and were much to the chagrin of some of tho parties interested, decided In the negative, regarding the first two questions, thus not
making it necessary to answer the
third and last one, t
A t>arty of six men were employed |
by the department to do exploration
work In the northern part of Alberta.
The contracts of theS% parties employed call for "expenses paid" and
expenses are usually regarded as necessities while travelling. The chief of
this party in sending ln the expense
account of his party had marked
down "tobacco, $12." He waa written to by the government regarding
the matter but replied, protesting that
in his case tobacco was a food and a
necessity, and that without tobacco
his men would not accomplish as
much as they would lf they had tobacco. Although the officials of tho
department readily realized this fact
they found it necessary to consider
"the weed" a luxury and, did not allow it as an expense. , t,

Captain Clark, superintendent of the

the training of bloodhounds, Belgium1
potiesiei a special race ol these dogs,
and has such ii special way oi training
them that tiiey have- become a feature
of criminal investigation not only in
their own land, but also in France,
Germany and several other continm-

chief of the Natal police, who will
see whether they can be employed in
tracking criminals in a part of the
world where as yet they are known
only by repute. As they Hre strong
dogs, it is believed they will stand

Browning's Maid.
Browning had a maid in his service
who had a gift for saying quaint
things. When the poet wfts going to
pay the last mark of respect to
Geerg�� Henry Lewes she said she
"didn't see thc good of catching cold
at other people's funerals." And once,
when he was away on a holiday and a
journalist came to the door to inquire
if it was true that the poet was dead,
she indignantly answered, "I have not
heard so, and I am sure my master is
not the kind of a man to do such a
thing without letting us know."

Minneapolis, Minn., Aug. 28.���The
loud alarm that the United States
plans the political obliteration of
Canada and its annexation has been
raised in the western provinces in
the last few days. It is spreading
like wildfire, nnd John Barrett, director general of the Pan-American
union, who Ib in Minneapolis, after
his recent visit to the Paciflc coast,
sees in it the gravest danger to the
reciprocity treaty that has yet developed.
"I was amazed to find the extent to
which the patriotism of Western Canadian people is being appealed to
on false grounds," said Mr. Barrett,
who came in from the Pacific coast
to speak to the Commercial club on
the Panama canal. "R. L. Borden.
Conservative leader and head of the
opposition to the treaty, Is said to
have planned the campaign by which
in the Conservative strongholds of
British Columbia and among the Conservatives of Alberta, Saskatchewan
and Manitoba, the word has been
given to scare the Canadians, and it
looks as if a great scare wlll sweep
that country before the vote ls taken
Sept. 21. That such a campaign will
engender much bitterness is more
than probable. I don't believe that lt
wlll defeat reciprocity, but lt is a
darkening, growing cloud.
"Formed as lt ls of false statements of Implied purpose that is absolutely non-existent, lt misrepresent*
the attitude of the United States officially, misrepresents the temper of
the people of the United States, Is
foolish to the beat Informed men of
Western Canada, who see the purpose that gave lt birth, but lt Ib appealing to some who are proud of
their Canadian patriotism and who
give it attention because of the high
source form which it is said to emanate.
"My own judgment Is that it is unfortunate in every way, and this I
say without desire to speak for on;
side or the other of the controversy.
Whether one believes ln reciprocity
or ls agalnat it, is his own affair, but
that an effort should be made to defeat the treaty on a basis of falsehood Is deplorable." -

The belief is not in any way a new
one. It is well nigh fifty years old
Sir Charles Tupper and Sir John A.
Macdonald were both strong believers
in the value of reciprocity with the
United States. From 1879 until 189*1
there was ;in order in council standing on thp utatute books of Canada
for the granting of reciprocity in
natural products with our southern
neighbors. In 18:i3 reciprocity wa3 a
plank in the Liberal platform. But,
as must now be pretty well known,
lhe readiness of the Canadian government came forward and the terms
this matter had always been rejected
until a year ago, when the latter government came forward and the ttrms
o'. the agreement now under discus
Bion were formulated. i
Tho suggestion now frequently
made by the Conservatives that the
idea is uew is therefore as absurd em
la i;ntrue. Forgetfulness is often a
convenient device and in this particu-
Iur case it ls undoubtedly convenient
ifor t e opposition to forget that reci-!
procity was the policy of that party,
in fact of both i arties, for a number
of years, and right up to a few
months ago, when Mr. Borden suddenly made the government aware that
he ancl his party intended to oppose
the ratification of the agreement.

that considerable tracts of very fertile land have had to be abandoned
because they were too near the fastnesses of. the Ahors. The latter
would not cultivate lt, and so it lies
fallow, Its only sign of a former civilization being the remains of many
villages once populated by Miris and
Assamese, who are now British subjects. It has long been a cause of
complaint with these people that the
British government did not sufficiently protect them from the Abors,

The Frontier Treet.
The territory that is the seat of the
trouble  is   known  as   the   "Frontier
Tract," and consists of a trip of land
from 15  to 30  miles across and 100
miles* long, lying  between the  Brah-
maptura   river   and   the   Abor    hills.
The British have for some time claimed   that   this   land   was    under   tlieir
jurisdiction,  hut  the  Abors  have  denied the claim, and until the appearance   on  the   sc��ne   of   Mr.  Williamson claimed  ownership of the  whole
tract,    lf doinn something useful with
the land constitutes a claim to Its possession, the pretensions of the Ahors
must   be  disalowed.      It  has  always

est  to  the  hills  because  of  the marauders.    The rest of it they still occupy,   although   the  Abors   have   frequently  obliged  them  to pay tribute.
They  have  even  attempted  to  make
some of the English people in the district recognize their claims to the extent of paying taxes, and thereby purchasing Immunity from attack,
Blackmai'ed for Years.
A. J. Harrison, who lives in the district, and represents a company carrying on lumbering operations there,
says that on more than one occasion
he has heen visited by the Abor chiefs
who have demanded money from him,
and  though  he  refused, he writes to
the London  Times saying that other
business men in the district have not
got off so easily.    A hand   of Ahors
descends   and   demands  tribute,   and.
having  secured  it, makes off.    In  a
few weeks another hand will turn up,
and,   denouncing   the   claims    of   the
first comets, will demand taxes.   Ono
flrm had to submit to three of these
extortions   in   one   season.       Refusal
would  have  meant  attack,  and   business men llie world over would rather
yield   to   an   unjust  claim   that   does
not   involve   too   considerable  a   sum
than stand on rights which would be
moro  costly   to  assert.    So  this  aspect of blackmail has been going on
for years because the British government has felt that it. did not wish to
go to the expense of keeping a sufficient force in the district to control
the Abors.
Its complicity went even further,
for Mr. Harrison says that it has even
assisted the Abors to recover slaves
that escaped from them and sought
refuge with the Miris and Assamese.
The British people have such a hatred of slavery that we may be sura
the facts Mr. Harrison lays before
the readers of the London Times
have not heen known generally, otherwise we should have heard of mass

several years.
Mr. Young, though few people know
it, was the or.giuatjr of hansard, tlie
official record of every word uttered
in the House oi Commons. For some
time alter Confederation no record
was kept of the proceedings. They
were reported in the newspapers,
twisted and colored greatly in tuose
days by party bias. Cases arose where
mucn contusion resulted from members being misquoted. The House was
in tne same position as the Provincial
Legislature ie now, and we know how
a hansard is occas.onally missed tliere
���in such cases, ior example, as the
Gamey incident, when newspaper reports were the records to go before
tne commission of inquiry. Mr. Young
sugg.-sted Hansard, a committee wu;
formed and otlicial records were
tnereby established.
Mr. Voung was a room-mate of the
Hon. Edward Blake and the late
David Mills at Ottawa during the sessions of the first Dominion house. He
was also a great friend of George
Brown, and oiten toured the province
with him, for he was one of the strong-1
est stump speakers of those flays. J
t     ifr. Young lias special qualifications
as a political historian, as he always
kept a diary o' Parliamentary events

'politicians oi his time.   Even now h*.

1 newspapers  commenting    on  current
polit.cal questions, with all which he
��� is closely  familiar.    And  when theM
\ letters appear he is deluged with correspondence    from    old-time   Liberals
who   remember  and   honor  his  Iona
service to party iuid country.
At the age of 70, Mr.  Voung is still
active in^msiness.   He is president al
the Gore Mutual Fire Insurance Co.,

he is also a director ol the Confederation Life, and alniosi every Wednesday he goes to Toronto to attend the

he  ha.s taken the deepest interest in

then known world. It wt\g tbe chief
Roman clty of Asia. It Kid a population of a million or more and waa
famous for Its learning, art, and beautiful buildings. lt was far above
Smyrna, which was founded before
it, and ln which lt is aald the poet
Homer waB born.
Ephesus dates back for a thousand
years before Chi 1st. Some say it was
started by the Amazons, but we know
that It waa largely built by the
Greeks, who came from tbe Ionic is
lands over the way. lt waa a great
city ln the days of Croesus, who besieged the town 540 B. C, and later
was so famous that Alexander the
Great wanted to change its name
for his own.
Among the greatest wonders of
Ephesus was its temple to Diana, its
favorite goddess. People from every
where came here to worship her, and
her temple was considered one of the
seven wonders of the world. It covered more than two acres, and Its
mighty.roof was upheld by 127 marble columna, eacb as high aa a six-
story house. The worship of the god-1
dees was so famous that a business
grew up ln making statues of her and great gymnasium
portable shrines which could be carried away by tourieta anl pilgrims.
Athletic games were also connected
with the worship, and the month of
May was sacred to her.
Site of Temple of Diana.
But come, let us have a look at the
site of that temple today. We have
taken a special car at Smyrna and
have been carried by a little French
locomotive over the railroad to the
station of Ayasluk, which is forty-
eight miles across count^-. We have
gone through a land" of vinegards
and olives, where baggy-trousered
peasants are pruning the vines and
working the fields. They dig about
the trees with three-tined hoes, and
till their crops with donkeys and bullocks. The plows are one-handled
and about the same as those used in
ancient days. We go over the plains
which must have fed the Ephesians,

through the wide streets of marble,
which have been partly uncovered
and made photographs of bits of the
There is enough marble here to
build a structure equal to our national

There are pieces of friezes, columns,
and capitals lying our ln the open;
there are torsos of statues, the heads
and feet of which have been broken
off and carried away; and also exquisite ' carvings which would toe
treasures to any museum.
Here lies a piece of marble drapery,
the remains of a goddess; there the
broken-up limb of an athlete, and
farther on an exquisite bit from the
front of the temple.
Among the ruins are the remains of
stores, houses and markets. I climbed over marble blocks along the
street which led to the ship canal,
and stood among shattered columns

and wool market. In one place is an

aRked, with brotherly frankness. His

"Mostly In my imagination at pre*.

flamed unaccountably.
With a ruunlng leap Mr. White vaulted the dividing hedge. "Used to do

high in his hand and cast tt far from
him. At Bettie* startled cry he turned quickly, nnd her frightened eyes
looked straight into those o? her lover.
"You!" he exclaimed, aghast.
"Robert." the girl asked wondering-
ly, "what nre you doing here?"
The man spoke desperately:
"I mny as well confess. 1 iitole Into
your garden tonight wilh the deliberate intention of destroying that rare
plant whicb we hnve both been at lending for weeks, i'ou see, It wns uli up
with me. Bettie, from the moment you
looked into my eyes, nnd in my eagerness to become acquainted with you I
invented the first clumsy excuse which
occurred to rae. Truth Is I uever wn*
strong on botany, so 1 searched the
labeled jars ou my mother's seed shelf
thnt day, choosing for my purpose the
ones thnt looked good to me. Then
when I learned the real name of this
thing we have been lavishing so much,
care upon���well. I simply Iind to get tt
out of the way before you found out"
The girl's lips were twitching.
"Robert." she demanded, "tell me the
name of this plant"
He laughed shortly. "The allium (A.
cepal��� that ts. onion seed." he snld.
Bettie laughed until the tears glistened upon her lashes.
"Robert," she said severely. "It lo
very wrong to deceive even about a��
small a matter as garden seed, but yon
hare my full forgiveness, for 1 love
you and under Uke circumstances���
who can tell?���I might have bee��
tempted to do the same."
And a short time later a muffled vole*

Paris,    Aug.    28.���Parisians    have
found a new use for the Seine this
summer���they are bathing in It. Here-1
tofore they have only lished in it and
reproached it when it rose too high i
and caused loss and inconvenience.
Swimming baths have been install-
ed along the crowded water front, and :
from  early  in  the  morning  till  late
at night the heat suffering idlers may
be seen fighting for admission.    This'
has had the effect   of changing   the
whole aspect of the   Parisian water j
front.   It has wooed the French Isaac
Waltons from their "sport" and cast
gloom upon thousands, who, too lazy

joyed  their  daily  buery   anent   the
