Purpose for Which Such Buildings are Erected is Explained
in Excellent Address By CR. Sayer���Formal Opening Today to Which All Are Invited.
Yesterday began the series of meetings In connection with tbe dedication of the new Y. M. C. A. building,
which will make this week memorable. Excellent music and on address by Mr. C. R. Sayer, Westeru
secretary of the Y. M. C. A., contributed to tbe enjoyment, Interest and
uplifting of an audience of men
which almost completely filled the
large gymnasium.
Mr. Sayer delivered a plain, practical, impressive address to men. The
speaker said that if he had correctly interpreted the conception of the
work entertained among the leaders
of the movement, lt was not buildings or associations ln themselves,
which counted. The building an.l the
Y. M. C. A. were here to minister
to the making of manhood, that we
might have a better city and a better country, that the boys and young
men, growing up, might be better
fitted for the battle of life.
World Problem and Some Solutions
He announced his intention of
speaking on the world problem of
sin, some suggested solutions, and
the Divine solution. The problem of
sin was an old one. and hs could not
hope to tell the men before him anything they had never heard before
The best he could hope to do would
be to remind them of some things
they had heard, but rerhaps forgot
ten. It might be asked why this
problem should be discussed today
and on this occasion. His answer
was because the Y. M. C. A. was In'
the business for dealing with the
world problem of sin and the solution
offered hy Jesus Christ. It was their
business not to multiply buildings or
gmrnaslunis or baths; they wanted
to reaffirm and emphasize their
faith in Jesus Christ. There was no
other way. no other person'that could
overcome t'in other than the Saviour
from sin.
Effect of t>-e New Building.
This building was going to have a
tremendous effect In the strengthening  of   men     to     resist   temptation.
Every Issue of every newspaper bore
witness to the existence of sin. Every
poltce   officer,   every     lawyer, . every
Judge   on   tbe   bench   bore   teetUamsr
that this problem exists.    Men might
have different ideas about it.    Some
of the men he had referred to might
think little of it, but they were tes
tlfvlng to Its eriatence.
It was a ptoiilem of long stan.Hng.
Most people '.ere familiar with the
story of Achan at the siege of Jericho. The victois were forbidden to
pillage. Achan had a wife and family and he wanted to get on. There
were several thousands there to
whom the ban applied, but Achan
was the only one to go down. Penitentiaries, housese of refuge, all these
bore temtimony to the existence of
sin. Every individual knew something about Its insidlousness. how
prone we were to think things we
detested, and how often thoughts became words and acts. God himself
said, there is none righteous, no, not
Men talked too much about the
grosser forms of sin, while there were
others just as bad. The sin that overtopped them all was the stn of unbelief. Also, there was the sin of procrastination, of rutting off the thing

Description of the Building.
Description of the building, at the
stage' to which tbe furnishing and
equipment have been brought, must
necessarily be Incomplete, lt is apparent, however, that a high degree of
skill and ripe experience have been
brought to bear on the work. The
gymnasium, which may be used for
public meetings, as was the case ye3
terday, is spacious, well lighted, heated and ventilated and Is an admirable
expression In stone and lime of the
principle underlying the motto, "Men's
sans In corpora suno"���a sound mind
n a sound body. A gallery, which
will probably be later used as a running track, encircles the auditorium.
The swimming pond is another admirable feature of the building. In
length is measures 50 feet, with a
depth of four or five feet at one end
and eight feet at the other. All over
the building, shower baths and toilet
room speak their messuse that cleanliness is next to godliness, and that

almost nil.   The chances are still further   decerased   by   the   heating   arrangements, which  are probably  the
best on the coast.
The bedroom accommodation provided will meet with the approval of
the most fastidious visitor. In all,
there are thirty-six beds. Tre rooms
are models of cleanliness and of comfortable, sanitary equipment and furnishing. Later, the two top floors
may be used as dormitories.
Of recreation and entertainment
there is no lack. A fine billiard table
and a pool table have already been installed -to-whtch access is gained off
the ball. In tbe basement a room is
available for use as a bowling alley
and   a  shooting  gallery.
The entrance hall is most attractively furnished. Writing materials
are conveniently to hand, and the entire equipment harmonizes well with
vases of flowers and many other
touches, apparently trifling which
speak to the young man of home and
the refining influence of mother or

Tbe fame ot Welsh choral singing
became world wide, wben In 18V 2 a
mixed cbolr consisting mainly of
Welsh village folk, under the leader
sblp of Caradog (Grlrlfth Rryg Jones),
won tbe Crystal Palace Company's
$6,500 challenge trophy, and a cash
prize of $500. This fame, was en
hanced ln the following year, when
the same choir under the same leader
again won the trophy, beating the
London choir, known tben as the
Paris Prize Choir, under the leadership of Mr. Proudmnn. The sons and
daughters, especially the daughters,
of the principality, have ever since
maintained tbe fame and ever enhanced the standard established and
set by the Crystal Palace victories. .

tlons, the Royal Welsh Ladles' Choir

The visits of the Royal Welsh Ladles' Choir to Canada Is by no means
a new venture. Indeed, it Is now a
matter of history. Americans were
first thrilled by those human night-
gales from the land of song as early
as 1893 when the musical daughter-.)
of Wales won a first prize at the
World's Fair, Chicago. The choir was
then under the direction of Its found
er and first leader, Madame Clara No
vello Davles, In February of the fol
lowing year, the late Queen Victoria
commanded the choir to appear and
sing before her at Osborne. The con
cert took place In the In Han Durbar
room, in the presence of several of
the crowned, beads of Eurspe. As a
proof that the Royal Welsh Ladies'
Choir has, under the leadership of
Madame Hughes Thomas, sustained
the high standard and renown estab
lished by the first choir, the choir as
at present directed and constituted
has won laurels fn all lands and wa3
also commanded to sing before the
late King Edward VII. ln the presence also of royalty.

The little township of White Rock

Not only-are the agents of the original townsite planning for extensive development work ln the way
of trails, roads, park and water system, etc., to be done this winter and
spring, but it is stated upon good authority that a syndicate of wealthy
Vancouver people have purchased a
40-acre tract of the Goard property-
just north of the mill and, facing the
sea front.
This syndicate have announced
their intention jrf putting on a gang
of men " to clear, grade and run
streets through the townsite addition
and the lots will be placed on the
market next aeason as soon as the
work Is completed.
A further transfer of about 30
acres also of the Goard pioperty was
made a few days ago, the purchasers
being a svndicate of business men of
whom Mr. H. T. Thrift of White Rock
and Hazelmere ia the chief mover.
The purchase price was upwards ot

"Should  the    unhappy    day    ever
dawn when the common fatherland is j
attacked,   Dutch   and   English   Afrij-1
kanders  will  be  found    shoulder  to
j shounler, defending the fatherland to
the very last."
' In these stirring words, which were
received with loud cheers, did General
Botha conclude un address tu his con-
stitumts in the Losberg district re-'
cently. ' lie was referring to the
question of the neutrality of South
Africa In time of war, and said he j
much regretted the publication in
July last of the "Volkstem" article,
advocating South Africa's remaining
neutral In the event of the united
king dom being engaged in war, because it had created undeserved distrust and suspicion of the Dutch Afrikanders'   loyalty.
Ho Insisted on the necessity to
avoid injuring a better understanding
between the two white races, nnd
considered that the "Volkstem" doctrine was unjust. There could not he
the slightest doubt that only the government of a self-governing colony
could des-ire whether its ships aud
troops should be sent out from their
own territory to fight elswhere ln
the event of Great Britain engaging
in war; but the refusal to send ships
and troops did not amount to a declaration of neutrality.
Neutradity would mean the refusing of all facilities to British warships
In the harbors'of thp union, such as
Simonstown, where the British government had spent millions, or no
more facilities that the South Africans dared give to the enemy's warships. It would also mean that every
Hritish soldier, in South Africa would
have to he disarmed, and that Great
Britain would he treated on exactly
the same footing as the enemy.
The least diference In treatment
would mean the violation of neutrality. It would be impossible for any
dominion of the empire���Canada n^
little as South Africa���to remain neutral without cutting itself asunder
from the empire. It was impossible
for one portion of the empire to go
to war while another remained neutral. South Africa today was in a
position of total helplessness. Therefore, the government would establish
a defence force at the earlleBt moment to relieve the empire as much
as possible of the task of defending
the country.
General Botha emphatically denied
the newspaper statement that he recently expresed himself in favor of
a moderate extension of the colored
vote. H certainly would not allow
the matter to be dealt with without
a referendum.

was killed by a train, taking with
hlm Into the grave what local friends
describe as an uncanny Invention. j
This invention, which according to
Gus Wenke, a bartender at Fifteenth
���treet and Franklin avenue, who was
Rock's most Intimate friend ln St.
Louis, was never patented or entirely completed, although Rock, who waa
about forty years old spent a lifetime of study and work on lt. He
never revealed to unyone. Wenke
says, just befv it was operated, and
although both he and others examined the device without Rock's knowledge ln his room at 1108 Franklin
avenue, ahout a year ago, they wero
unable to decipher the source of Its
strange power.

I     Wenke   says   the   machine,   which
Rock built from ahout forty dismantled  clocks  and    watches,    betrayed
I supernatural   powers.      Rock    would
'stand across the room, with bis friend

and a cloth of this shade would appear on the dial.
Rock's friends searched the room
for wires and other evidence of

thing about the operation of the device, except thut Rock wore a peculiar belt around his waist which they
deduced must have some bearing on
Ihe operations. Before he left St.

The inventor told Wenke he was

Rock spent about four winters at
tbe Franklin avenue rooming house,
and was constantly working to make
the device more nearly perfect. He
was last seen in St. Louis about a
year ago, and no word had been received of his whereabouts until news
of his death arrived. The inventor,

Change in the Habits of Wild Rabbits
German   natural  historical  periodicals are culling attention to an interesting change ln the habits of wild
rabbits, especially   ln    the    western
parts  of Germany,    as  for  Instance,
Westfalen.    The animals in question
are giving up their ancient habit of
burrowing,  and  have  commenced  in
great part to imitate the bares, which
as   is  well   known,  nest  only   above
ground.    The hares themselves were
once burrowers, and  gradually  went
through  the  same  change  in   habits
ln this    particular   that   aprears to
characterize the rabbits at the present day���at any rate in Germany.   In
woods    where    the    undergrowth is
thick, and which are therefore especially   suitable   to   the   rabbits,   they
find hdlng places ln plenty for their
nests; and even in open country, un-
wooded���and the rabbit seems to be
taking more and more to the open���
they take refuge ln board-piles, rubbish-heaps,   brush-piles,   brick   kilns,
drain pipes, and ditches that are overgrown  with    weeds.       The    female
makes little fortresses for her young,
to protect them from the cannibalistic  propensities    of    the male;    she
lines the nest warmly with fur from
her own breast, visits them secretly
at  night, and  perhaps suckles them
once more   during    the   twenty-four
hours; but each time that she leaves
them she carefully piles rubbish before the opening which leads to her
defenceless family, and defiles the obstructions    with    ordure.���Scientific
How Height of Aeroplane Is Measured

The question of what is to be the
naval policy of the new adminlstra
tion is one that has exerciBed thc
minds of all Canalians from the day
of the election. Vary little has been
said by the government organs in this
respect, but the Manitoba free Pr^ss
commenting edltorllly writes as follows:
"The people are not Impatient, because they reconnlze that Mr. Borden
ls having hls own troubles these
days; but they are looking forward
with not u little interest to the dec.
larntion of the naval policy of the
new go\V>rnn?ent which cannot ,ba
much longer delayed. Thus far, it is
only from the Nationalist-Conservative newspapers of Quebec that we
get any intimation of the nature ol

French-Canadian colleagues.,, LE^no-j Sugar cured  bacon    20c to

have all three courageously denounced the navy law, together with
Messrs. Bourassa and Lavergne. We
may be sure that they have not con
sented to become Ministers without
being given the assurance that our
principles will be respected more than
they were under the last regime.
"We were already morally certain
that the Hon. Mr. Borden, would redeem the promise implicit ind explicit which he made to the public
by voting in favor of the M#ik motion of December, 1D10, for the principle of referendum on the question
of Canadian contribution to the defence of the Empire."
This certainly foreshadows a referendum.    But what will be the nature
of the reference, if  one    Is decided
upon?   A series of abstract questions
as has been suggested by Bome, will
scarcely   serve.     It   would   be  much
better for the Government to formulate  its  scheme,  incorporate  it  In  a
naval bill and then submit this measure to the judgment of the electors,
to vote "ye9" or "no."   Meanwhile influential    Ontario    papers  like    the
tbe Hamilton Spectator, are declaring
very emphatically that there will be

In all about 100 opium pipes were
secured in the raid. They vary from
having been in use about a month or
two to about fifty years, the oldest
being the darkest and most richly colored. They are worth from $8 to $175
each. The most valuable pipe secured is tipped at both ends with
ivory, is mounted with hand carved
silver, trimmed with gold, and is
half century old. Its dark lustre and
polish is rarely exceeded. With the
pipes were found a set' of smoker'a
tools, comprising several silver needles. Bllvpr scrappers with ebony handles, silver and glass lamp used to
heat the opium and prepare It for
smoking, and ask trays,- The outfit
was contained In a teak-wood box of

Old Country papers to hand give
more detailed descriptions of the gun
trials on the new super-Dreadnought
Orion when even the concussion opened the canned goods on board. The
Lcndon Daily Chronicle says:
The super-Dreadnought Orion reported that the trial of her 13.5 Inch
guns had been completey satisfactory.
The Orion is the first Dreadnought
of the world'B navies to be equipped
with ordnance of over 12 Inch calibre,
and the news that her hull well withstood the shock of the tremendous
discharge gave the greatest gratification to the Admiralty official.-.
The firing took place off Owers
Lightship to the south of Selsey Bill.
All the ten big guns are. for the first
time in a Dreadnought placed on the
centre line, to secure a full broadside flre, and even the inner guns
have an angle of flre of 110 degrees.
First with half charges, and then with
full charges of common and armor-
I iercing shell each gun was fired
singly, and the mountings, which are
nearly half as heavy again as those
of the 12 Inch ordnance, developed
no defects.
The supreme test, however, was the
firing of all ten big guns on the
beam with full charges. The seamen
and marine gunners and every person on deck or the upper works had
their ears covered with wool-padded
leather Napa, The guns were fired
silmultaneously by pressing a trigger
of a new patent appliarfte connected
with the range-finders, and operated
from a fire-control station at the
apex of the solitary tripod mast and

70,000 foot tons, would be sufficient
to drive the shell, at the maximum
elevation, from Dover to Calais. The
shells, however, were allowed to drop
into the sea in shallow water near
Selsey Bill. The force developed by
the combined explosion would be sufficient, lt is calculated, to raise thirty Orlons a foot.
She shook violently from stem to
stern, and yet the persons who were
least affected were the guns ciews.
They scarcely heard the explosion,
and all they saw was the recoii of the
gun through the six foot space in the
barbette, which happened like a
lightning flash. The huge wire-wound
steel tube, weighing 76 tons, returned
to Its firing position with equal velocity, under the influence of great

Crockery Smashed.
Below deck all loose crockery and
pieces of lighter furniture had been
stowed away, and they rattled ominously in their places, and dozens of
plates, cups, saucers, tte, were
smashed by the force of the concussion, which was even sufficient to
burst open tins of golden Byrup in
the canteen. The hull itself withstood the shock well and showed no
signs of damage.
The thick glass of dozens of sky-
lights were protected by armor
plates fastened down tightly with
butterfly screws. The most amazing
damage of all was that, under the
force of the concu.B��'.on, chiefly from
the central barbette, the bottom of a
boot  fell  clean  out.
The decks were practically undamaged. The area over which the
fl!a8hes passed was specially thickened with armored steel to resist the
tendency to buckle under the plunging shock of the discharges of hundreds of pounds of cordite, and the
Injury done was merely superficial.
Subsequently the Orion'B 20 four-inch
guns of her anti-torpedo armament
were tested, and the super-Dreadnought came into harbor.
The force of the concussion was so
tremendous that the windows of the
houses at Southsea, over twelve miles
distant at the crow flies, weie heavily

Senior Amateurs Win In Iroquois Cup
Game Which May Prove Merely
a Friendly.
New Westminster Just mlSBed being the whole thing ln football in
Vancouver on Saturday. The Rovers
and the Thistles met in a League
game. The Thistles, with the strongest team they could put upon the
field, played an aggressive and bustling game during the first half, and
their play was more tban emulated
by the Rovers. Ends were changed
without either team having scored.
The second half started with the
Thistles again on the aggressive.
After about thirty minutes play the
Rovers finished an effective and resolute raid on the territory of their
opponents, by registering the first
goal of the match.
The Thistles came back with a rush
.and repeated assaults on the Rovers'
goal were unproductive. Then one
of those things which no fellow can
understand happened. Shots from thu
Thistles at short range had proved
abortive. Tben from midfleld one
of the forwards tried a long shot. It
was a chance in a thousand, but It
came off. lt was a fine Bhot, and It
evidently took Jack by surprise.
There were so many players between
the place where the ball started and
the place where It would have to
land in order to be of any use that
it seemed negligible. It passed the
players In the field, however, and the
custodian of the goal as well, and
landed In the net.
Two minutes later the Thistles
added Insult to Injury by putting on
the winning goal. Matthews broke
through the Westminster defence and
shot into the corner of the net.
The players were:
Thistles���Park, Christian, Teed,
Chippendale, Irvine, Matthews, Butch-
art, Somers. Murray, Nicol and Bell.
New Westminsters���Jack, lyon. McMillan, Fraser, Bruce, Mlckleton,
Donald, Canduff, Lewis, Smille and
A. G. Beaton, secretary', has been
instructed to write to the secretary
of the Vancouver and District
League, claiming expenses, or a replay of the cup tie at New Westmln
ster. The question will probably be
dealt with at next League meeting In
Iroquois  Cup.
Tbe senior amateur team met tlie
second string of the Thistles on
Powell street grounds, where a good
lianic ,>as .'.vltneBsed. There ,wtts
some d, lay ln starting, owing to the
grorr.ds being occupied by two Junior clubs. When the first game was
over it became apparent that even
then there was something amiss. The
players of both teams were grouped
in the centre of the field discussing
some knotty point, and numbers of
men from among the spectators gathered on the outskirts of the group.
The official referee had not turned
up. Finally the teams agreed to play
under protest.
It was a pretty exhibition- of football in which from the first the West-
mlns*r men ehowed the better style
of play. The Thistles, especially in
the defence had the advantage of
weight, but the heavy men were at no
time rough.
The first half ended with no goals
to the credit of either side. It was
chiefly remarkable for some fine
runs by the New Westminster right
wing. The second half started with
an evident determination on the part,
of the Thistles defence to bottle up
the dangerous wing of their opponents. In this half the right wing of
the visitors was the more conspicuous, and did some good work. The
New Westminster centre half also
showed great adroitness and resource,
his play frequently drawing the applause of onlookers. In this half, after repeated tries, which were successful met by Dalcourt, the Thistles
custodian, the New Westminster put
on the only goal scored during the
Each side secured a penalty kick,
from which neither succeeded in

straight for the net, but again Dalcourt was there. The Thistles' pen.

BaldheadnesB tn footballers ls usually attributed to beading the ball, but
this could not be the case with the
once-famous Corinthian, G. H. Cotter-
Hi, who used to head very little. He
had grown quite used to being told
to keep his hair on, but once he was
more than amused by being asked
by an admirer If he knew the past

ill, "Why, bald, or course!" replied
the questioner pointing to the Corinthian's cranium.
The  patchlng-up  process   when  an
accident  happens  to  a  player's  gar-
| ments and his comrades gather round
I him in a circle, ls an incident which
j ls always mirth raising, and one leather-chaser   who   dashed   off   the   field
holding  his  remnants    together was
asked by the funny man at tbe gate
why he was going off.
"Why, to hide my blushes," was the
retort, which was even funnier than
the satirical observation of the Birmingham spectator who, when a player met with a catastrophe to his garments, remarked to a chum, "Mere
football form, Bill, another bloke fallen  to  pieces!"
In most towns shopkeepers Saturday nights display the notice. Football Results Received here." On Saturday, in a Scottish match, there
had been a lot of rough play, and the
halfback of the visiting team bore
many marks of a strenuous conflict,
friend took blm to a barber's shop
where the notice mentioned was displayed. "You receive football results
here, don't you?" he Inquired Innocently. "We do, sir" was the reply.
"Then," said the wag, drawing the
half-back forward, "here's one; put
him in the window!"
In one of the Crystal Palace games
the referee had given some really
amazing decisions, and one of the
hume supporters on the grandstand
had got exasperated. He had exhausted his available stock of emphatic
phraseology, and Just at the moment
when the referee gave a particularly
idiotic decision a boy who was selling
football guides came along.
"Has lt got the rules of the game
in it?" asked the spectator. "Yes,
sir," replied th lad. "Then here's a
penny. Take one to the referee with
my compliments!" was the crushing
order. The laugh which followed
was cheap at a penny.
Whenever a policeman returns the
ball to play it is always an occasion
for mirth in the crowd, but the gentleman in blue on duty at Tottenham
last season ls probably still wondering what a spectator meant by the
remark, when he returned the ball to
the goalkeeper from touch, "Great

enough, from somewhere was promptly loosed a yellow cat. and the two
felines, meeting in the middle of the
field, trotted off together in the most
amicable manner to the loud cries
of "A draw;  A draw!"
Particularly when the actual play
gets dull does the fun in the crowd
become acute. To let off fireworks is
a silly practice sometimes indulged
in, and when at Nottingham some
years ago a spectator hurled an explosive into thc midst of the players
with a view to livening matters up.

"Catchers are allowed to wear one

The pitcher's task, however, ls the
most difficult of all, though he seldom goes to the well. He has to tie
himself In knots, throw somersault3

place his toe in his mouth, untwist
himself suddenly, throw the ball at

"delivery." Fortunately he manages
It without a doctor. The more twist
he gets on the ball the larger becomes
hts stipend. He does not draw wages,
because wages havo a bad habit of
dropping whilst stipends rise.
Pitcher's Skill.
"Most pitchers rub earth on the ball
so that the batsman may not see It so
soon. An exceptional clever pitcher
can put enough twist, on the ball to
drive It Into a salmon. As time goes

London, Oct. 22.���The story of a
notable journey of a cat from Kingston, Surrey, to its former home at
Glastonbury, ln Somersetshire���a distance of about 133 miles���is now told.
In April last a cat���mottled grey,
and described as half-Persian in breed
���was sent from Glastonbury, where
it had been reared, to the matron of
the Kingston Nursing Home, it was
sent In a packing case, drilled with
air holes, and obviously the animal
had no opportunity of marking the
points of its journey. Socn after arrival at Kingston, the cat was lost,
and despite the most diligent searching no trace of It could be found.
The matron of the nursing home
has now received a letter from Glastonbury stating that the cat has
found its way back to its old home.
It arrived emaciated and footsore,
and apparently had walked the whole
of the 133 miles.
The letter described the cat on its
arrival as "a mere shadow of its former self," and expressed the belief
that, although terribly weak througn
its wanderings, it can be nursed back
to a healthy condition.
Brightness of Rising and Setting Sun.
Camille Flammarion undertakes to
answer, tn L'Astronomic the following question, proposed to him by a
corespondent: Why are our eyes less
dazzled by the sun toward sunset
than just after sunrise? Is the early
morning sun realy blighter than the
late afternoon sun?
There are two answers; one physiological, the other physical. The retina becomes progressively more sensitive in the dark. A sudden Illumination at night dazzles our eyes,
whereas the same absolute intensity
of light would have much less effect
in the daytime. During the day the
eye becomes gradually more and
more accustomed to the light; in
Other words, less sensitive to it.
However, the setting sun is probably actualy less bright than the rising sun, because of the diminished
purity of the atmosphere through
through which it shines. Solar radiation pumps up an enormous amount
of moisture from the earth during the
day.���Scientific  American.

Ixindon, Oct. 20.���Decrying American women und finding an Arcadian
simplicity in the opportunities in
England to buy bread at a postoffice
and to hire bicycles at a baker's, Mrs.
Anne Warner French, the writer, says
she has found out how to live an
Idyllic life on a modest income. She
has now settled down in a Dorsetshire
Seek to Be Envied.
"I think women at home In New
York," she says, "who think of nothing but tlieir own enjoyment, rouging
their cheeks, strutting Fifth avenue,
wearing costly gowns and winning
the envy of their less fortunate fellow creatures, are an incumbrance on
tlie earth.
"I cannot imagine how women can
go through such ulmless lives without ever having hud babies to care,
for or dally duties to perform.
"Even housekeeping is charming ln
England. Last year I lived near Salisbury und bought everything at a
blacksmith's. Here one gets bread
at tho postofflce and hires bicycles
at a baker's. I devote the morning
and two hours ln the evening to my
work, and go to bed at B o'clock, full
of health and strength and childishly
Her Idyllic Life.
"In this peaceful old village I can
lead an Arcadian life on a modest income. There Is no peace or rest for
the middle classes ln America. Rest
can he enjoyed only by a millionaire.
I came here to live because I discovered that the petty trivialities of
American dally life were too much
for me and interfered with my woik.
Here I can invite friends to visit me
for the week-end; then they go
away and leave me In peace to my
writing. In America my friends used
to come and stay a month, and so
much of my time was taken up that
the only way I could get literary work
done was to sit up till 2 or 3 o'clock
in the morning.
"My Englishwomen fi lends take
such broad views of life ln their dally
occupations that their conversation
is much more intertalnlng than that
of women of my own race. For Instance, English women take an Interest In all kinds of healthy outdoor
sports, hunting, riding, golfing and
tennis. They do parish work, understand politics, know the career of
every living man of note, have a
knowledge of music, Including the
latest opera, and books, and know the
merits, from an artistic standpoint, of
paintings of note ln the Royal Academy.
Converse on Cook,
"On the other hand, the average
American woman politely yawns after ten minutes' conversation on similar subjects, and breaks ln with the
remark: 'Did I tell you about my trouble t  with my  last cook?'
"Ihe charm ot tbis side ot tbe
wa:er is that one learns the great se-
cre' of being able to rest. Sometimes I think that from ocean to
ocean America never rests. I know
1 never refitted there."
Mrs. French denies that she made
all manner of disparaging remarks
about America before leaving Minneapolis to take up her residence in
England. Her views on the superiority of English life, as given, are
published in the Daily Mirror.

Since the days of Carlyle the people
in England were rather more religious, especially the working classes.
They are more temperate, more has
been done for the poor, especially in
the housing them, the violence of
trades unionism, especially when they
were ln formation, has abated, the
Parliament of 1006 contained more
worklngmen than ever before, and it
is was more serious minded. It was
blundered into in 1889 the wise judgment of the democracy, has made that
war a Joy even for the defeated.
These were some of the points
made by Dr. James Bonar ln discussing Thomas Carlyle and ln crltcis-
ing his political philosophy ln an address delivered by Dr. James Bonner,
Ottawa, before the St. James Literary Society recently. Many members
and their friends were present, and
in the discussion that followed hiB
paper great appreciation of lt was expressed.
It is thirty years since Carlyle died,
said Dr. Bonar. Many of us shed
tears at the news. AH the young
men of the colleges then read Carlyle, but even in 1881 his fame was
fading. A change of feeling towards
him was-perceptible especially among
tbe writing fraternity. This was not
owing to. but hastened by the Indiscretion ot Fronde.   Was Carlyle great

Kubellk's $235,000 fingers���Insured
for that amount���were twisting nervously when a reporter visited him.
The government had insisted on
holding Jan's two violins' valued at
$75,000, at the custom house, and
Kubelik had nothing on which to
practice. Nothing, though Nahan
Kranko had brought in so many vlo-
HnB from his own collection that no
one could Bit down without danger
of  smuBhing  some   valuable  fiddle.
Kubelik said he did not understand
why the government had deprived
him of his instruments. It had never
been done here before, and he supposed the violins could be brought
as tools of trade. Meantime, lest one
of his $235,000 digits might get out or
practice he must borrow an Instrument.
The reporter gazed respectfully at
the most valuable hands ln the world.
They appeared to be rather small,
well manicured, strong hands. The
fourth finger of the right one bare
a plain gold band and another set
with two rubles and a diamond.
Not Treated as Fragile.
"How   do   you   take   care   of
hands?" Kubelik was asked.
"Well.   I   don't   wear   them
muff,"  he answered.
The violinist added that he washed
them in either hot or cold water, as
was convenient, wore gloves when he
pleased, and did not apply any lotion
to keep them supple. In fact, he
seemed to treat his valuable paws
with   a  disconcerting  familiarity.
The insurance is in two companies,
the Oceanic of England and the National of Austria. It covers any accident that would keep him from appearing at a concert, and he pays
about $1500 a year in premiums. In
addition to this he carries $150,000
life insurance.
Kubelik looks as young as ever,
even on close inspection. There are
one or two threads of white ln his
long black mane, but not a line on
his brown face. He is as simple and
unpretentious as of old. He speaks

Italy's last attempt at conquest ln
Africa was disastrous, and the final
campaign in Abyssina wlll long be remembered, for lt Involved, In the
rout at Adowa, the worst defeat ever
sustained by a European army in
To go back, an advance by Italians
from Massowa had- been resented by
King John of Abyssinia and in 1887 a
force of over BOO was wiped out, o-
cept one man, who reached the coast
stripped and wounded. The Italians
had fought untll their ammunition
was gone. A large reinfoi cement was
despatched from Italy, and during the
"wars of succession" following the
death of John, took possession of
Keren, and the Asmera country. The
Italian government supported Mene-
llk.il., who had always befriended Italian explorers.
Menelik became Negus, or Emperor
of Ethlopa, In 1889. under a treaty
which virtually made Abyssina an
Italian protectorate. Menelik, however had ideas of his own. By Italian intervention he obtained arms
and ammunition from Belgium and
eoon organized an army of 10,000
men, abundant war stores an 1 twenty
cannon t**) well as having the support
of numerous feudal lords, who paid
tribute to Menelik, and had troopa of
their own. , __
The Italian government, in pursuance of its own alms, claimed possession of the Red sea littoral trom Cape
Kasar to the strait of Bab-el-Mandeb.
The Sultan of Obia, on the Samall
coast and another Samali ruler were
by their own desire, under Italian
protection, and by an arrangement
with Britain the protectorate extended along the coast of Samallland to
the Juba river. Brigandage was repressed, commerce and tillage en-
souraged, and native troopa organized, who were devoted to the Italian officers. In 1894, after a warfare
with Dervishes, the western *��"��'����
of the Italian colony was extended 260
miles inland from Massowa.
Menelik meanwhile was entreated
by the feudal princes to act against
the Italians, who had, they asserted,
occupied Kassana in order thenoe to
attack Abyssinia. Gen. Bartleri, an
old Garibaldlan, who commanded thc
Italian troops when Informed ln 1894
of the Intriguer,, sent out troops who
defeated the rebels In the field, and
concentrated for the defence of Mas
thors had no counterpart thirty years
ago, and they did not reach the higher publlc. A bookseller of London
was asked last summer about the
demaud for the works of Carlyle. He
replied that they had little or no sale,
but that a polloeman had bought a
copy of "Sartor Resartus" a few days
ago. But Carlyle's books were having a big vogue In Germany at the
present time, and 120,000 copies of an
edition were sold. They were not
dead yet. His great work was the
leaving of a favorable presumption of
Cromwell, and the making of Goethe
familiar to the English-speaking
world. On literary fame Carlyle set
his thought, but he was never tired
of deterring other people from striving for literary attainments.
Dr Bonar said that frequent passages in the pages of Carlyle were
likely to survive in all quotations or
eloquence. ���
He then recalled some of the peculiarities of   Carlyle, his   dogmatism,
his unusual style, his humor, his 8*
tire   his deep religious feeling,  and
his feeling that he had a goBpel to
preach, and he preached lt remorselessly, almost at the expense of his
literary quality.   The temper of Carlyle was not   sweetened   by prosperity.   He had no sympathy with democracy.    He never cast a vote ln his
life   'As a prophet Carlyle saw and
preached against what he conceived
to be the two great evils of his time,
Irreliglon and anarchy.    Ab Masslne
said though he preached silence,   he
loved  silence somewhat platonicauy.
He had a command of B 1 lngsgate, as
shown in some of his writings  but It
was not such language that conferred
immortality, as tbe letters of Junius
Droved.   The political mission of Carlyle   Dr   Bonar said, was unsuccessful,' though  he  was  right  ln  some
things.    From the first he saw the
iniquity of the Corn Laws.     He   espoused great causes, which were not
onlv then unpopular, but which to the
present age seem  unjust.      Dr.  Bonar likened Carlyle to an ancient Hebrew  prophet.    He    questioned  the
necessity of popular suffrage, and h?
preferred choosing  a leader  by  acclamation or adoration.   His Idea was
really some kind of theocracy with
rulers, both  spiritual  and  temporal.
But the words of Carlyle often awed
men laboring for their country in directions he never approved, said Dr.
Bonar.   John 8tuart Mill and Carlyle
were the typical figures of the life
of England of tbe Nineteenth Century, and Mill would fall out ot the
gallery  or  heroes   sooner  than  hia
contemporary. Carlyle wlll not all die
so long aa the English language lives
and so long as literature la a solace
of civilized man.
I drag their uncles miles out of their

It ls the new escalator at Earl's
Court. A privileged few were allowed recently to test Its gladsome
motion, and today all the world that
happens to call at Earl's Court station will be able to have a ride on lt
and feel what it is like to go up or
down stairs without the faintest
twinge even with the most rheumatic
The escalator ls fascinating in its
simplicity. You arrive at Earl's
Court Station by District, Intending
to take the Piccadilly Tube for the
next stage of your Journey. You step
down a few stone stairs, and there ia
a wooden stairway, all the parts fitted together with the neatness of a
cigar box, proceeding downwards at
the rate of ninety feet a minute.
oYu step from the firm ground on
to the wooden top of the stairs���the
division between them Is scarcely per-
ceutlble��� and find yourself proceeding towards the staircase. Will you
be shot over? There is quite a thrill
on the first Journey.
But you are not shot over. As you
reach the edge of the stairs the floor
beneath you breaks up���but ln such
a way that you cannot slip unless you
really trip���and becomes part of the
staircase, carrying you down untll, at
the bottom lt levels down Into merely
a moving platform  again.
And the most timid of railway passengers need not fear a slip In getting off. The rail at the side, which
moves down with the staircase, cuts
across the stair at the bottom, and
edges the passenger gently off.
So close and safe ls the working
that a cigarette dropped recently as
a test, was carried steadily down on
a stair, along the level part ot the
moving platform, and gently pushed
off, uninjured, at the foot.
Ten thousand people can be carried on the upward staircase of the
escalator every hour, and the same
number can go down. There is no
waiting, for the staircase never stops.
It has taken a third of a mllion bricks
to build it.

enable lt to be driven along the floor
of the sea, and a propeller which will
drive lt through   the   water.   It has |
glazed portholes that will enable the I
men Inside to see In every direction,
and a double bottom, which, when the
crew  wish  to  sink the  vessel, they j
can fill with sea water by means of
a hand pump.   Two air tubes aer at-
taohed.    Through one of them fresh
air  can  be  pumped  by   tbe  salvage |
vessel above,  while foul  air can be
drawn up through the other.
Hut the strangest feature of the
craft are several steel rods with ends
shaped something like human hands,
which project ln various directions.
These, by an ingenious contrivance,
are worked from within the barrel,
so that they can be turned at various angles and pick up anything
from the bottom of the sea. Other
rods are fitted with drills designed
to  bore through rock  or  armor.
The vessel Ib contrived so that
once it reaches the bottom it can, if
the ground be level, travel on Its
wheels, the elctrlc motive power being transmitted from the ship above
by a cable. If any considerable obstruction Is met. the crew can lighten the vessel so that lt floats above
it and then set the propeller going.
If lt ls desired to lift anything, the
rods with hand-like terminations can
grasp an object or attach grapplers
to it. If the Iron or wooden sides of
a sunken vessel cannot be broken,
the rods with drills will bore holes in
them and the other rods insprt explosives, which can afterwards be
fired from a distance by electricity.
Another feature of the inevtlon is an
air-lock, through which, If necessary,
a diver equipped with the ordinary
dress can step out on to a wreck.
