Robert Kelly Gets 'Decision Concern-
t
ing Hazelton Lands Against

Surrey school board Is to follow in
the footsteps of practically every
progressive municipality of British
Columbia, and will pay higher salaried
to Its teachers ln future. Lately the
trustees have had to regret tbe departure of some of their best teachers
for better paid positions, and yesterday afternoon the boarj obtained
from a public meeting of ratepayers
an expreaalon of their willingness to
pay faithful teachers, who stayed
with tbe board for more tban two
years' an Increase in wages of from
$5 to $10 a month. ,
At the same meeting the school
trustees were asked by tbe chairman,
Mr, Voaey, to give an account of their
actions during the past year, and in
the absence of Mr. C. W. McCallum, I
Ottawa, Dec. 19.���"If any private

I want .to say so most emphatically.
The finding is that an order be Issued
compelling the Grand Trunk Pacific
to locate its station at the point ai
which lt agreed to do so, and that
an injunction be issued against their

With this clincher Judge Mabee of
the railway commission, gave the
conclusion of tbe argument In the appeal of Robeh Kelly, Vancouver, for
fulfilment of the contract by which
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
company agreed to locate a station
near Hazelton on lot 882.
It appears that after accepting the
agreement the company proposed to
change the location of the station to |
lot 861. The chief commissioner was
most emphatic in his denunciation of
the railway company. He declared
once moie that so far as lay in bis
power he would put a stop to the exploitation of public lands by railway

The facts of tbe case, which was
pleaded by Mr. W. Q. McQuarile for

follows:    Some time ago Mr. Bray
arranged   a   logging   deal   between
Joseph Gauther and the Brunette aaw
mill in connection with aome timber-
lands up the coast, which tbe owner,
Mr. Merrill Ring, of 8eattle, had just

Central Park Was Scene of Attempted
Robbery Monday Night-
Robbers Driven Off.
Two men, masked and armej, attempted to rob the Northern Crown
bank at Central Park on Monday
evening, but were driven off by O. H.
Bibbs, a Junior clerk who sleeps oa)
the bank premises.
It appears that about 11 oteleek
Bibbs was retiring to rest when there
came a loud knocking at tbe back
door.. Bibbs sleeps in a little room
at the back of the ' bank building.
Snatching up a revolver he ran to the
door. He was met with an order to
hold his hands up; he fired bis re
vol ver Instead. The robbers returned
the flre, and in the duel that followed one bullet lodged In Bibbs' left
wrist and another grazed his temple.
Partially disabled though he was,
Bibbs held his murderous assailants
at bay till an opportunity occurred
for him to rush oft for help. Constable Lee, of Colllngwood, waa'
among the citizens who were presently on the scene, but wben tbey arrived the robbers had decamped.
Bibbs ls now in ih% general hospital at Vancouver. He describee tbo
robbers as tall and wearing dark
clothes and hats. Nothing was taken
from tbe bank. A box of cartridges
was found pn the corser pf AvondaleJ
avenue and Westminster road yester->
day, and two cartridges on the corner
of Patterson and Westminster road.
The follce force !�� every city and
district on the lower mainland is oa
the watch for the robbers, and tbe
courage of Bibbs is commended on
every hand.

carried the secrets of half the English aristocracy and not a few of royalty's. His regard for a secret went
far toward making his reputation anl
his fortune.
Some of the famous criminal cases
in the annals of the British law in
the second half of the nineteenth century were entrusted to Sir George's
keeping, and almost Invariably he car
ried his charges through safely.
When he was on the side of the prosecution the prosecution won, and
when he was for the defence hls
client usually was acquitted.
Among the famous cases which he
handled, cases which had an international Interest and signflcance, were
the Hatton Garden diamond robbery,
the baccarat scandal and the Parnell
commission. Sir George himself was
Inclined to regard his vindication of
Mr. Parnell as the greatest triumph
of his career. Of this last case he
said:
"It was the greatest case I ever
had. It lasted fifteen mouths, involved the honor of sixty-five members of
parliament and in addition the word
of Parnell that he had never written
the lac-simile published by the Times.
After I had received various documents I cameto the conclusion that
they were forgeries and by Piggott.
During the first six months of that inquiry I had to sit with the secret that
I knew who was guilty and unable to

Deer in New Zealand.
Mr. F. W. Godsal. one of the provincial flre guar.llans stationed at
Cowley, Alta., has a photograph of the
head and antlers of a red deer stag,
the interest being greatly heightened
by the fact that this particular stag
was sent fiom Windsor Park to New
Zealand in 1867 by the latf Prince
Consort. At this time the stag was
three years old, and ten years after
was shot, by request, by Major Campbell, as he was becoming dangerous.
lt will interest Canadian readers to
know that in 1908 no less than :>0U'i
deer were killed at one station in
order to reduce their number. The
deer, Indeed, have increased In New
Zealand until they have become a
nuisance und their horns grow to a
size unknown in Great Britain. A further item of interest is found in the
fact that trout introduced from
England grow to an enormous size
and Increase rapidly in the virgin
streams of New Zealand.

SPAIN   AND   MOROCCO.
The Franco-Spanish "secret" treaty
tit 1904 assigned to Spain ail the Med-
Itei ranean coast of Morocco from Mel-
iila to Ceuta and the Atlantic shore
as far as the mouth of Lukkos. It
included the cities of Tetuan, Arizilla.
Laraiche and the town, of Ksar el Ke-
bir, but it left the disposition of Tankers and the French sphere.
Since that time the Spanish have
occupied all the .ports assigned to
thera by that treaty, although one article expressly provided that they
should do this .only after consultation
\yit:j France. The French march to
Fez last spring waa a signal to the
Spanish that the disintegration ol
Morocco was Imminent, and their occupation iof the shore that the treaty
had marked .out for them was prompt-
Having .now bought off Germany,
the ftanch have still to negotiate
with the Spanish as a final step in
the Moroccan -debate. Replying upon
their earlier agreement, the spaaisti
ha\e demanded that they sball be re
cognized ln the territory they now
occupy and also ln Tangiers, the real
price of northern Morocco. It ls on
this basis the Spanish are prepared
to confer.
The French .position ls materially
dlffeienL One ^et of colonial champions Insists that .the Algecn as con-
ventian repealed the 'secret" treaty
of 1904 and that Xhs .France-German
arrangement of JLhla year, with its
"compensations," entit.es France to
a larger share. The final Invalidation
of the treaty ot XW\, several French
newspapers insist, was .the action of
the Spanish in occupying Laraiche in
the spring without giving proper notice. ���
A less extreme view is held by a
larger party, whose Journals recognize that the Spanish cannot be compelled to leave Laraiche and Arzilla
without the threat ot war at least, and
that the British public opinion will
sMpport tbe Spanish claim to Tangiers, because thla will remove any
danger of a French navoJ station st
Tangiers facing and weakening Gib-
CTAt"x-
The moderate preaa proposes that
alnce the conditions have changed hetween 1904 and 1911, Spain, like
France, should be prepared to make
certain concessions. These, so far
as they have been outlined, include
the evacuation of Ifnl. south of Agadir, recently occupied, and the long
sti etch of arid coast opposite the
Canary Islands, which constitutes the
Rio d'Oro colony, of slight value te
Spain and encroaching upon French
West Africa.
In return for these concessions on
the Spanish part the French should
recognize the Spanish title to Tangiers. Tetuan and the whole Mediterranean coast, as provided by the
treaty of 1904; thla Is the argument
of the conservative French newspaper*, nnd lt. is the view which the
London Times has also indicated as
representing the British idea of the
just and honorable course.
As attempt on tbe   part   of   the
iifciit'li to coeice the Spanish would
at ouse -indignation in oieai liruaiu,
lt successful it might cost Alfonso
and his hinglish queen their throne.
It would also create in Spain the
same sort of Hostility wmcii tu*a
trench expedition to Tunis aiou3eu
in. Italy in 1S&1. That Great Britain
would permit trance, even unuer existing (.cnuitions, to occupy 'i anglers
is doubtful, anu a dispute might enu
iij a 'rupture of tne Anglo-*'i encn entente, whicb has recenuy chown iu>
usefulness and strength.
i if Tangiers is finally left to' the
Spanish there can be no doubt tnai
fajiitin will get tiie immediate prize ot
Morocco. Algiers and Tunis and even
C'.aiio will have to recognize a new
rival aa a place of winter pilgrimage.
That Tangiers, and not Gibraltar, will
then he the port of call of ships from
America to Italy nnd the Orient is
equally certain. Climate, the attraction ior tourists of the Arab and his
world, and the advantages it has as
the place of departure for the interior of Morocco, soon to be .opened by
the French, will insure a prosperous
future for Tangiers.
Tha  conversations  between   Spain
ana France aire   to   begin   a t once.'
When they are over the   Moroccan
question will be .settled.   The real debate will be over Tangiers, ain.ee Tetuan and the Riff lan coast .are already {
recognized as certain .to .fall .to Spain, ���
British   support   for   Spanish   ciaims'
on Tangiers seems likely to he   de-,
cisive, and the prospect is that any
Spanish concessions wiil bo in    the!
Rio d'Oro and at Ifnl.    If the affair
is finally settled on this basis the lit-!
tie Spanish enclave between  Melllla j
and Laraiche will be the nnly interruption  to  French poseuion of the
African  coast   from   the    Trlpolitan
frontier* pn the Mediterranean to the
Gambia river ln West Africa.
DETECTIVE TURNS AUTHOR.
Burns���Not   Bobble���TaMe   Btory  of
Dynamite Trail, *
Following modern literary fashions,
I William J. Burns baa became a die-
! tlnguished      author    simultaneously
with becoming a world renowned detective, and writes In McClure's Magazine of the trail that led him to the
, McNamaras. It must be said that Mr.
| Burns has an unaffected   style,   and
i lays no claim whatever to phenomena
al   qualities    that    made    Sherlock
Holmes such a great reader of .riddles. He caats no air of romance over
the work of his men, whom he calls
operatives, Just as though tbey were
, factory hands, but he shows tbat la
i one respect our conceptions   of  detectives, as we   have   gained   them
from   romance,   are   well   founded.
Sherlock  Holmes succeeded because
he had a genius for observing trifles.
The   McNamaras   were arrested  because their pursuer  had   the  same
faculty  of   microscopic  examination.
A handful of sawdust constituted one
of the Iron links in the chain that
dragged them to the prlaoners' dock
In Lot Angles.
It ls to be remembered thst the de
struction of the Los Angeles Times
building was only one of a Ipag tsetif
ies of dynamiting outrages which ln
1!'08 amounted to a "reign of terror."
Not until September, 1910, however,
one moath before the Los Angeles
crime, were (toe detectives able to get
a' clew, but when the Lucas Iron
Works at P.aoua were dynamited, un
unexploded bomb was picked up in
the neighborhood. It was a homemade affair, coonsisting of an eiectiij
battery, a cheap aland clock and a
ten-quart can of nitro-glycerine. The
can was stamped with tbe name of
the rolling mill that bad turned out
the metal; a box enclosing the cloca
was also stamped, but neither of
these clews promised much, because
millions of similar boxes and pieces
of metal ware scattered through tho
country. The nitro-glycerine itself
was a likelier beginning for the hunt
Because of the risk attached to the
shipping of this explosive, and the refusal of railroads ta carry it, nitroglycerine ls as a rule used not far
from where lt ls manufactured, and
from tbe factory to the customer is
generally carried ln a wagon. A higa
explosives factory was located some
two hundred miles from Peoria, and
the manufacturer was communicated
with. He went U> Peoria and identified the can of nitro-glycerine as his
product.
A Handful of Sawdust. |
Then the hunt began for the man
who had bought it. Morehait, the
manufacturer. necaUled a "J. W. McGraw," who had represented himself
as the agent for a "G. W. Clark," of
Indianapolis, the owner of a quarry
where the rock was too hard to be
blasted by dynamite, who had purchased a hundred quarts of the ex
plosive. Five daya before the explosion at Peoria, McGraw had tete
phoned from Monde, Ind., agreeing
to accept delivery ef 100 quarts of
tbe stuff on tbe highway outside Albany, Ind., 'aa tt waa enlawful to
(transfer the explosive within the
town limits. So Morebart had driven
the stuff to the spot Indicated, and
on the road bad loaded it from his
waajan to McGraw'a. Tbe detectives
wane able to trace the wagon used by
McGraw, and in the bottom of it
tbey found some sawdust with some
that bad been found with the Infer
nel machine at Peoria and found the
samples to be identical.
The   detectives   had   thus   a   good
description ot McGraw, and a specimen of his handwriting from the reg-
t ister of a hotel.   Ihey traced him to
Indianapolis,   and   there   found    that
'��� one of his intimates was John J. Mc-
' Namara,* secretary-treasurer    of   the
I International   Association   of    Briige
I and  Structural Iron   Workers.      Mc-
I Graw had disappeared again by tnis
I time,  but   McNamara   was   watched
I night and day.    Then  came tlie Los
Angeles explosion and the finding of
two unexploded bombs, which showed
I unmistable   evidence   of   being   .tho
| product of the maker of the  Peoria
I bomb.   The trail in California was as
plain as the lines in a man's nana,
Detective Burns says, and it was not
long before the detectives had found
where  the  dynamite   in  the   bomb
had been purchased.   They were aid
ed in this search by the tact that the
explosive was not   an ordinary one,
being far more powerful tban ls ordinarily used.    Tbe detectives got on
the tsack of the purchasers, but were
puzzled to flnd no one answering the
description   of McGraw to be implicated.      Soon   afterward,   however,
McGraw returned-to Indianapolis, an.l
was seen    wltb   McNamaras.      He
went to Chicago, and there the detectives found out that his name was
Ortip McManlgaL
Still following McManigal, they
found him ln the company of a man
who answered the description of "J.
B. Brlce," one of the men who had
purchased 1000 'pounds of the special dynamite ln San Francisco.
Brlce turned out to be Jim McNamara. After this it was simply a matter of welting for a favorable opportunity to make the arreat.' This wad
simple, for it was desired to get the
men together, and when they traveled
they usually carried a suitcase full ot
high explosive*, lf theie had been
any mistake In tbe swiftness of the
officers at tba laat moment scores of
innocent people might have perished
ln the flght Finally the chance
came ln the lobby ot a kotel ln Detroit. The men had checked their
suitcases containing tbeir bombs and
their revolvers, aad tbe detectives
sprang upon tbem. MeNamara tried
to bribe bis way to freedom, but tailed, and in a day or ao Manigal confessed. "There waa no third degree uaed," aaftd Detective Bams;
"I never used It In my Ufa."

The weakness of Christianity in In-
��� - dia, says Mr. Begbie, Ilea ta its sacerdotalism,   ceremonialism   and   pea-

"Christianity came as a priest and

Christianity Is rejected by Brahminism "not as the noblest thesis of
optlmtefli, bdt as an Interior thesis of
pessimism." Brahminism, Mr. Beg.
ble afflrs, has no knowledge of Christianity as the gospel ef optimism. Nor
does the divine message come from a

religion ot sorrow rather than or joy,
it baa' broken in Impotence against

Have you ever.heard of a ease of
catarrh, bronchitis, inflammation of the
lungs, or pleurisy that did not start
with a common cold?
Kvery cold you catch has in it the
makings of one or other of these diseases, if it can break down your defences.
And even if it does not develop into
something more dangerous, it will keep
you thoroughly miserable for a week or
two at least.
The wise course, as soon as you feel
the cold coming on, is to start taking
Na-Dru-Co Syrup of Linseed, Licorice
and Chlorodyne, and keep it up till the
cold is knocked out completely. This
splendid cough syrup will do the trick
quickly and thoroughly.
You can feel perfectly safe in taking
Na-Dru-Co Syrup of Linseed, Licorice

wanted for the lacrosse team, as
many supposed,' but to make Moody

The alderman then explained the
terms and intentions of the by-law In
detail.
Alderman Johnston.
Alderman Johnston said he wished
to preface hla remarks "with a few
.sweet nothings!'- a* the other speakers' had done, but/ the chairman held
him, down fast to the questions    on
the paper, whlgh he Answered without
more ado.   Tlje total debt of tit* city
.M retorted as $2,870,900, while   the
assets did not amount to more tban
$2,510,700,   of which $1,641,481   were
convertible assets, and $410,219 con-'
i.,plated   of parks,   schools,    markets
etc.    The sinking fund amounted to
practically $60,000, and    the   debentures  to $464,689, of which'all    hut
$14,000' hai been sold tor either 93.10
or 98.75.    The alderman then stated
/that he-wan not welt pleased with
certain things thatvwere going oa   in
the city.    He hoLej he would toava
-the opportunity at some future date
to discuss those ques Uo toe with   the
ratepayers and tell   them   what   he
knew and thought about them. .
Alderman Dodd, chairman of   the
health  committee, dealing", with tho
site for the isolation hospital; gave
the reasons   of the   committee    foi
chosing the old site for the isolation
hospital.    No funds  were    available
to buy any other.   The Koy^i colum
bian, very rightly, as he thought, had
refused permission to them to build
on   their   grounds,   and.,   moreover,
those who had bought propeity near
the site had done so ln full knowledge
that it was intended for a hospital.
An Episode.
While a vote of thanks was heing
'tendered to the mayor ahd aldermen
for the way in which they had answered the questions submitted to
them, Mr. W. J. Kerr rose and dim-
plained that the board of works had
got off very lightly. ' They have si en
thousands and thousands of dollars,"
he exclaimed excitedly, "and we have
got nothing for it" He accordingly
moved that the board be requested
ito draw up a report and publish ltln
the local papers.
These remarks called down on the
speaker the wratht and Indignation of
the mayor. From $150,000 to $160,-
000 had been spent, ke sail, repairing
and improving roads, and $90,000 was
still In hand unspent, because the material could not be secured.
Ideals, Instead of exercising her rightful Influence on the destiny of man,
she may deserve and incur man's bitterest contempt and scorn. With
rare exceptions, woman under the
Roman Empire kept slipping down
lower aad lower* on the incline, till
she is spoken of by th�� historian as
'La dlvlnlte de la corruption.' Seneca,
too, speaks of woman as "a shameless
animal," In whom he can see nothing
but a savage creature Incapable of restraining ita passion.' We all know,
in tbe time of Augustus, woman became so degraded and debased that
the very highest and noblest Roman
families were dying out for want of
heirs; while lower down the rounds
of the social ladder, woman having
lost her place in the family self-inflicted extinction obtained far and
wide, desolating whole provinces, and
even Rome Itself. Thus was sapped
the very foundations on which an empire rests her very life."
Ideals Govern the World.
Father Vaughan went on to Bay:
"The world is governed more by
Ideals than by ideas, more by example than by precept. Accordingly, tne
unique moral and social status universally recognized in every Christian
community since the Incarnation, ls
to be ascribed in a very full measure
to Christ's mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. She it ls who may be said
to have created the Christian home.
Home, we are told, is the place of
peace, the shelter not only from all
injury, but from all terror and division; and wherever a true wife comes
tbis home is always around her. The
stars only may be over her head, tbe
glow-worm in the night may be the
flre at her foot; but home is yet wherever sbe is; and for a noble woman
lt stretches far beyond her, shedding
Its quiet light for those who were
elsewhere homeless. 'Happy men,'
exclaims the ancient chonlcler, 'to
whom Cod has given wives and mothers such as are to be seen throughout Christendom; but observe well
that the prototype set up before
Christianity is not the Spat tan mother, or the Roman matron, or the vestal virgin but the mother known to us
as the 'blessed amon*; women,'
Elevation  of Women.
"It Is to this woman to whom I refer, that the modern nationalistic historian,  attributes  revolution  brought
j about  In   woman's  moral  and social
i status,  'because   of  ber and  through
j her,' says Lecky, 'woman was elevat-
I ed to her rightful position .and tho
j sanctity  of weakness  became recog-
niied as well as the sanctity of sorrow.
"What a power for checking evil
end promoting' good ls in her hands;
.with what a magic delicacy does sh*
not bestow sympathy, mitigate pain,
and alleviate sorrow; how wisely
does she inspire virtue, and create a
very atmosphere of purity wherever
she has a mind to do so. Follow her
from her well-ordered home into the
slums of poverty and misery, Indeed,
wheresoever you will, wherever there
is wrong to be redressed, or suffering
to' be redeemed, or sadness to be comforted, sorrow to be pitied, loss to he
mourned, there, you will be sure to
Apd some self-sacrlflcing, self-forgetful Christian woman."
Likens Life to Game of Chess.
i In another passage of his inspiring
address Father Vaughan said: "You
know that St. Paul compares life tq
a race. If he had lived in this our day,
1 have little doubt he would have likened lt to a game of baseball, or football, when both players and, specta
tors are not so much intent upon the
merits of the game, as upon the gate
money, and their own winnings upon
the gamble.
"Today I will borrow a lesson from
the Pauline letter, as I will ask you
to see ln the game of chess, a strongly-painted picture of life as lt actually
is ln our midst. On the chess board
I notice king and queen, bishop and
knight, castles and the rest of lt, and
the troop of pawns. The chief point
in the game ls for each piece on tbe
checker board to hold its own against
all comers, to refuse to checkmated
and tossed aside off the battlefield ot
life; but any how I notice this, that
no matter how splendlly king and
queen and the res; ot }hem may have
held their own and triumphed over
others, a time inevitably comes when
i child's hand may sweep them all
without bote tit distinction from king
to pawn, right bit the chess board,
and into the little Woofen box which i
is slipped away out of sight. That is
the end of the game.
The Pettiness of Life.
"When I turn from it and notice all
our little social and political distinctions, I observe that the mission of
pver> one in life is to hold his own and
to make the best of the opportunities
offered him. But in this game, too,
the end comes and is not only the
end of the individual, but of all petty
notes of distinction between them, for
without a single exception they are
all swe;>t off the board when the gapte
of life is done, and dropped into a
little wooden box euphemistically called �� coffin and hurried out of sight.
"If life is a game," said Father
Vaughan, "play the game, and play
up, doing your best wherever God ha3
placed you, remembering that the
hierarchy of social distinction set up
on this little planet, Is a negligible
quantitly before Him who wants you
only to play tbe game of life according to the rules which Ke has given
you."

Didn't Want a Postoffice.
| In most countries the introduction
of postal facilities is regarded as an
unmixed blessing, but it was not so
in Korea. The postoffice erected there
In 1885 had but a brief existence The
fln^/flAfo lj|in?LLltred of all inl
aovauoag, rlotea a..d uUrned it to tlie
ground. The natural result was t<j
make Korean stamps of the first issue
in a used state of great value. The
matter was allowed to drop for a
time, and it was not until ten years
later that the present system
established. -
WiU
J* Lighter Than Cork.
*""jr.e of the strangest tri i ip existence is the ambash, growing in the
shallow waters of Lake Chad, ;n
Africa, a body of water which when
at its max mum extent covers 10,000
square miles, and yet has on the
average a depth of only six feet. The
ambash tree grows so rapidly ss to
attain its full size, twenty-five high,
with a trunk a foot in diameter, in
two years. The wood when dried is
unrivaled in lightness, its density being only two-fifths that of oork.
Gravy sn the Tablecloth.
When gravy has been spilled hy,
some hapless diner on your pet table-*
cloth rub the grease spot thoroughly
with French chalk on both sides of
the cloth. Fold tha cloth nnd leave
;t until the next time it is needed.
Lightly biush off the chalk with a
soft clean brush, and your doth will
be a.- spotless as when freshly
laundered.
Not
What  She  Needed   Most.
"1 am sending you a thousand
kisses," he wrote to his fair young
wife, who was spending her first
-nonth away from him.
Two days later he received the fol-
owing telegram!
"Kisses received. Landlord refuses
o accept any of tnem on account."
Then he woke up and forwarded a
;heck.

Th�� Orchid.
Th# orchid Is a peculiar plant, for,
Strange as it may seem, there is nu
distinctively orchid odor. One smell*
like the Violet, others like the rose,
the hyaelnch the daffodil. Orchids!
are the monkeys, the mimics of tho
vegetable world, in oder as well as
form and tint. No otljer fywer j<;-
sembles an orchid, but orchids ara
forever aping butterflies, pansies,
boots, spiders, pitch plants, birds
snd what not. And they are not abJ
solutely certain to look just the same
twice   in   succession.
The  Happy  Number.
"Company remarks'' by children
sre fnmous for their innocent tactlessness and mistakes. Small Jennie's
mother, for Instance, had invited a
large company to her house and,
not having suificient silverware, hail
borrowed from her sister. At tabl*
Jennie silently but palpably "counted noses," then broke out with:
"It's a good thing no more people
came, mumsie, for we've only just
enough knives and forks to go around,
with Aunt Sarah's and sit."
Lst In the Light.
Light is a better protection thsn
any amount of barricades. Formerly
when men left their business places
at night they turned ofi the light and
put up great shutters. To-day they
have learned that their greatest safeguard against enemies is to pull back
the blinds and keep a bright light
oonstantly burning.
Stingy Steps.
An old man was passing our house
one afternoon, taking exceeding.y
short steps. My little'cousin watched him for several minutes and then
said. "Mamma, doesn't he walk
stingy?"
A  Platitude.
"Father," said the small boy, "what
is a platitude?"
"A platitude, my son, is a statement
whose truth yoa are compelled to admit uttered by some one whom joa do
uot personally  anlmire."
