Artillery Attack Develops all Along Tchatalja Lines���Turkish Warships in Action-Nazim Pasha Reports Repulse-
Horrible Scenes in Cholera Swept City���Powers Land Detachments from Warships���Turkey Nearing End.
London, Nov. 17.���The negotiations
for an armistice have failed, and the
Bulgarians opened today the attack
against the Turks all along the Tchatalja lines. The heavy artillery duel
continued throughout the day.
It appeared to be a Bulgarian preparation for an infantry attack. The
Turkish fleet participated vigorously
ln the defence at the Marmora sea
end of the lines and Turkish war
ships probably assisted at the Black
sea end also.
Nazlm Pasha, the Turkish commander-in-chief, in a despatch this
evening, claims to have repulsed the
Bulgarian attack and destroyed th?
three Bulgarian batteries.
No news of the battle has been received as yet from the battlefield nor
any information as to the strength ot
the forces engaged on either side.
Nazim Pasha's headquarters are
near the Hademekul railway station.
According to latest reports the battle
ceased with nightfall.
"Establish Accomplished Fact."
The resumption of hostilities Is not
regarded aa indicating the collapse ot
the peace negotiations, but rather as
a means to hasten Turkey's acceptance of the allies terms by proving
her complete helplessness, or as ono
correspondent phrased lt, "to establish
an accomplished fact before making
further communications."
The Bulgarian government organ
Mir reverts to the subject of peace
and plainly Intimates that the allies
are prepared to consider the question
of an alliance with Turkey, provided
the latter promptly accepts their
terms which would give Turkey ths
opportunity of welding her terrltorleh
into a modern state and maklir-
frlends of her conquerors.
The Balkan statea clearly have ln
mind the formation of such an alliance
as would be able to defy European
interference in tbe disposition cf the
jyolls of war.
Thousand Cases Dally.
Every day brings fresh delpatcheu
regarding the terrible spread of
cholera. It is now stated that ther I
are a thousand cases daily, with a
mortality of an per cent., while the
Turkish authorities are impotent to
take any measures to prevent its further spread. ThiB belug the case, it is
doubted whether the Bulgarians wlll
risk the danger of marching on Constantinople. It is therefore believed
that hostilities have been resumed in
order to hurry the Porte's acceptance
of whatever terms the allies dictate.
The sanitary board at Constantinople has adopted a resolution expressing grave concern at the prospect of
either the Turkish or the Bulgarian
army coming into the capital. The
ambassadors of the powers have taken
the battle had ended, but again the
booming was heard and the movement
of troops could hi observed not far
from the very gates of the capital. A
detachment of several thousand from
f'ie Tchatalja lines was replaced by
fresh troops who had been held ln
reserve near the city.
The refugees behind the lines began
breaking camp early In the day and
moved back toward Constantinople.
The Greek villagers, who heretofore
iad remained admirably Indifferent to
events, prepared to desert their
homes. While calm prevailed, there
was a deadly tension ln the knowledge
tbat the fate of the capital and of th-.��
Turkish army for those who watted
���inxlously in Constantinople was at
Magnificent Duel.
Several members of the legions and
other foreign residents witnessed the
artillery duel, which they describe
as magnificent. Shelling from height
to height across Biyuk-Chekmedys
lake and over the plains towards the
north, the flashes of guns on both
sides were visible to observers over
miles of low country.
Within the city eyery military pre
caution was taken. Pickets were posted at various points and patrols guard-
ed the streets. The ambassadors held
a meeting at the foreign ministry with
the commnnderB of the Ottoman gen
darmeri and advised for the safety of
A Stricken City.
Constantinople, Nov. 17.���(by Inde
���pendent route.)���There are more than
a thousand cases of cholera dally in
and around Constantinople and the
death rate has reached fifty per cent.
I ho authorities arc powerless to copo
with the situation.
On Thursday laat 3000 cholera pa
tients arrived by train at San Stefano.
They would have beeu brought here
but for the protests of the railway
cr>���r-nny and tho Austrian ambassador
who a<-,ktid that they he sent to the
Lazarettos at Brcos and Ismidt.
Horrible Nenlect.
For twenty four hours the patients
rpmalned in the train on a siding at
San Stefano without water, food or
medical attention. Then they were
shipped to the quarantine station; it
they had been lower animals they
oould not have been more neglected.
Yesterday, a foreign doctor assist-
'**t "n the military hospital, discovered by accident that five soldiers dying of cholera had been placed among
the wounded. He ordered their removal. Bearers took up the dying
men on their shoulders, but their condition was such that the doctor ordered the bearers to drop them.
This they did. and the unfortunates
were left lyinsr In the mud for an hour,

Debate Upon Abolition of Ward
Edmonds, Nov. 17.���Whether tha
present ward system In Burnaby wlll
be abolished, will probably be decided
on Monday evening when the councillors will have to record their votes on
a by-law. presented by Councillor
Madill. This question has been coming to the front during the past few
weeks following an adverse vote in
the council chamber when the representative from East Burnaby failed to
pass the measure.
In the January election a plebiscite
was submitted to the people on the
abolition of the ward system and was
carried by a large majority. Whether
the councillors will dare to disdain
thgjnandate of the people remains to
be seen and the voting on the by-law
will be watched with interest by thc
It is known that Councillors Mayne
and Brltton will support Councillor
Madill on his motion, which would
thus leave the question to be decided
by the reeve. Since the franchise bylaw was again Introduced, thc three
members of the council mentioned
abeve hare been very friendly in
municipal matters and state they will
make the otber councillors show their
hands on the ward by-law.

The women are said to have repre

names as Flora and Cherry Delmore
Defoe also is said to have shot at each

Edmonds, Nov. 17.���"The report
which appeared lu the New Westminster paper on Saturday afternoon
which stated that-1 have definitely de
elded to make the' run for the reeve-
I ship, was published without my
authority, and at the present time t
am not ln a position to state whether
I will entter the race or not."
This statement was made by Mr. B
G. Walker, stipendiary magistrate of
Burnaby, thia afternoon, "it is true,"
he continued, "1 have been approached
by the officers of the Edmonds Ratepayers' association with reference to
making the race, but until that body
meets on Thuraday evening, I am not
in a position to give out anything
definite as yet.
"If I do decide to run it will
mean a personal sacrifice to me as 1
should have to resign my position of
magistrate, and as you know, the
salary of the reeve is a very small
amount indeed. My position rests entirely with the electorate and I was
very much surprised to read the report on Saturday which was entirely
without permission from me."

Covering a dlsianfco of over 12,000
mllea, visiting all the Important trae
tlon systems in the United States; Mr.
Allan Purvis, Interurban manager of
the B. C. B. R., returned to Westmin
ster last evening, having been away
since October 3.
Mr. Purvis left here In company
with Mr. H. W. Dyson, assistant comp
trailer of the company, for Chicago,
where they attended the annual convention of the electrical traction company officials, leaving there a few
days later foe New Tork.
Seen last evening Mr. Purvis spoke
highly of the observations obtained
during his travels. During his visit
to all the Important centres he met
with the, best .treatment from tha
officials and civic authorities, the high
standard set by the B. C. Electric having preceded him. Although non-oom-
raltal on the subject. It is understood
that his report to the bead office of
the company will result in many lnv
provements to the present Interurban
system of the B. C. E. R.
"Tbert were many Ideas whicli
could be placed Into effect with good
advantage by the company I represent,
but Just what wll. be done I am not in
a position to give ont," he aald.
Mr. Purvis wlll occupy his office
this morning and during the week
will make a tour of Inspection of tbo
different, lines running out of New
Westminster- to notice or order anj
taken by the jury in the inquest held
Into the death of Young Joy last Wednesday. On Friday afternoon License
Inspector S. J. Pearce, accompanied
by a membtr of the staff of this paper,
made a rigid inspection of the place.
So far as Chinese residences go It
may be said to be fairly clean, but for
hospital purposes it does not appear
to be the correct thing. Located on
Agnes just ..past Eighth, it ls a small
bungalow building standing in the een-1
tre of a large lot. There are there
flve rooms, all of which appear to be
of a fairly comfortable nature and I
moderately clean.
A peculiar feature ot the visit, however, lay ln the fact that the Chinaman In charge persisted in reiterating
to Mr. Pearce an appeal to come back
the next day at three or four o'clock
and he would have everything cleaned
and tidy.
The place Is not properly considerel
a hospital but an old men's home, lt
is operated under the auspices of the
Chinese Benevolent Society, which, it
is understood, provides for tbe upkeep. The old and Incapable Chinese
are sent to it by tbeir fellows rather
than have tbem placed a burden on
the corporation.
It is asserted that medicine is supplied to the Inmates when they are Indisposed, but it is generally of Chinese
ooncoctlon and believed by those who
administrate it to be the proper treat-
men for the Illness from which any

to a statement by James Carruthers.
one of the most prominent grain men
in Canada.   Mr. uarruthers says:     , ���
"lt ls a fact tbat tbe terminals at
Buffalo are already so badly congested that it takes ten days to get a
vessel unloaded. The bulk of the
wheat consumed all tbrough the New
England and Eastern States and practically all the export wheat of tho
United States goes through the port
of Buffalo. The American railways
east of Buffalo are already congested
aud they have recently increased the
rate on grain.
"I was over in England only a short
time ago and asked prominent vessel
owners why .more vessels are not
available for ocean freight and
especially grain as the rate on the
latter ls so good. They replied that
rates are good everywhere and It to
impossible to get vessels to carry all
the ocean tonnage offered. Thia, in
spite of the tact tbat every shipyard ls
filled with orders.
"It farmers would only consider that
every fall, wben they rush ttjelr grain
on the market and expect tne railways
to move sucb vast quantities in Bath
a short time.they are aimply taking
tbe most difficult course to force down
tbe market tbey would see that they
should have granaries and keep the
grain as the market absorbs it.
"The vast quantities of grain moved

Klr.g George Dictates Private Correspondence to HU Daughter.
Princess Mary, who is at present
paying a visit with the Queen to the
Dowager Grnnd Duchess of Meehlen-
hurg-Strelitz, at Neu Strelitz, a pretty
old-fnshionfd little town, some sixty
miles from Berlin, is having her first
taste of Continental life���part of the
necpssary arduous preparation for a
For all tho young member? of the
British Royal Family the upbringing
is at nil times of the most exacting
character, but as the only (laughter
of the King, particular care has linen
taken that PrinceRS Mary should he
equipped as befits an English princess.
Queen Mary, knowing the responsibilities of quoenship. is aware that
the education of her daughter, who
will probably one day fill n European
throne, is too vital for any mistakes
to be made, and in consequence
Princess Mary's career lias been
mopperl out witii painstaking care.
Princess Mary began her schooling
at the age of four together with hpr
brothers in the royal schoolroom. Thi.J
continued up till three years ago, when
th; question was discussed whpther
Princrss Mary should go to boarding-
school; but it was finally decided
that it wou!d be best for her to eon-
tinu�� her studies at home und->r
special tutors.
Like her brothers she has heen
brought up from infancy to speak
Franch and German, nnd. in addition
she has a very good knowledge of
Latin, Greek and Italian. It would
scarcely he imagined, however, that
typewriting would enter into a royal
curriculum. As a niatW of fact,
Princess Mary has had lessons on a
machine, and is now an expert typist.
This last little item of education was
an idea of her own. She was very
anxious to assist the Queen in attending to the huge hatches of correspondence which r��aoh the roynl residences
each Any, ancl it is now snid tlmt not
only the Queen, hut King George also,
dictates private letters for liis daughter to type.
' As everyone knows, Quf-n Mary i ���
u gr:ot lover ol linnip life, and in
pursuance of this fondness ha��
brousjht hrr dsiu'lit-r un to a [trncti-
enl knowledge of till domestic nffiiirs.
which sre necessary for the proner
pp'mnal control of a household. Thj
young prillCfas lias Iven tiuigbt needlework, r'lid i.- t] it ite proficient in tli:'
art of conking.
In addition. Princess Miiry is a vir\
fair all-round sportswoman, nnd. -ul-
though angling is one of her favorite
outdoor pastimes, she also follows the
hounds und enn bundle a gun.
In short, although her roynl hich-
ness is necessarily restricted in her
actions, she is always very happy,
and well fitted for the grent part she
is destined to pluy in yean to come.
An Enthusiastic Yachtsman.
The Marquis of Ormonde is always
to thp fore at Cowes, nnd since the
day when he succeeded the late Kinn

Ormonde is a practical sailor, and
hns "passed" for the skipper's certificate of the Board of Trnde. He is a

A former British Liberal Whip, Mr.

n>nt him a note which read:
'Dear Whitekey.���Please try and re
serve for me, throughout the session,
s rent in the thiid row as near as

that he ought to attend a levee. "Can

It will be seen that the position ol

Westminster is intimately interested
in Saturday's announcement from Ottawa giving preference to white men
who will engage In the fishing trade,
for our income from the sea's harvest
and from those wbo gather it is ona
of our soiirceS or being. And the more
white fishermen the greater should be
that income.
Sir Richard McBride on arrival at
Ottawa recently referred to the unguarded coast, the unfortified terminals of Canada's western gate. We
have a little while yet to see what will
be done In this direction, but neither
Iprmlnals nor defences are so import
ant a local matter as introducing In
British Columbia good, solid white
men with their families who will
settle along the 7000 miles of our
coast. We may then raise up a race
cf men as hardy and as used to the
sea as are the "bluo noses" of our
eastern shores, the fisher folic of Newfoundland or the sea dogs of the Dogger Bank.
If we can get this most desirable
class of settler we need only copy the
example of "Britain's oldest colony"
to fnrnigi an efficient naval reserve,
whne the problem of supplying men
for our merchant service, whose
growth is now considerable and which
will unfailingly be rapid in the future
should be solved.

Our Most Ordinary Acts Havs Horrifying Names.
Are you a maniac? What a personal question! What an absurd su?-.
srestion! Of course, you ure not���at
least, you don't think you are. Mental
scientists think otherwise, and they
have just invented a frightful list of
names lor our little manias. After all,
a maniac is only a person suffering
lrom a mania, and although the word
is associated in our minds with the
inmates of asylums, "there are others," as the catch phrase Bays.
"Mother. Johnny will have to see a
doctor at once," any fond father
might well say after reading the British Medioal Journal; "the poor little
fellow has undoubtedly got 'stomuto-
"Oh, James, whatever makes you
��r-> that? What an awful disease I"
motheT would reply.
As a matter of fact, the awful-
sounding disease is really not dangerous, and is only Uie baby habit of
mania for suekine the fingers under
the selected scientific name.
No fretful little mister will ever dare
to Lite his nails Again after the latest
addition to our knowledge. Tell him
he is a regular "onycliophagomnniac,"
and if that doesn't frighten him nothing will.
There is hardly a single person-
man, woman or child���who is not the
victim of some mania or peculiarity,
many of which have been allotted'
blood-curdling names. Everyone has at
some time or the other seen distressing examples of the "equimagino.
maniac." Probably the afflicted person did strike them as being possessed
of a quajnt habit, but when they saw
him of the riding-breeches and leggings switching his le^'s under the
vain impression that he was bestride
a horse, they had no idea his case was
so s 'rious.
There is. after all, some good reason
for the modern craze amongst men t>
ruthlessly chop off their beards or
moustaches. The practice ie really
akin to vaccination. It guarvls, or is
said to guard, our sacred person from
the terrors of smallpox, and in tlm
razor lies our chance of safety against
becoming a , -"moustachio-strepsoma-
niac." Once we allow our moustaches
to grow we are in danger, und if we
find ourselves twirling a flowing military ornament or ner.'ously fingering a
stubby upper lip, we are infected with
the deadly disease.
Now tliat the holiday season is coming along mar.y of us will be going to
the country for a fortnight, and in the
fields and quiet lanes we may at any
moment be confronted by a "capiilioir-
We need not stay at home or purchase a "Brdwning autofnatio" for fear

A Tale of the ZZ
^11 a*. .."*' ���'*"���,>. . ****** *���** '��� ��� 14 * '��� ��� ���( I
Tbe sand of tbe desert shimmered In
the Intense heat Tbe sun shone brazenly down from a merciless blue sky.
(Shifting winds had riffled tbe sands
Into wavelets, witb here aud there a
mountainous billow.
Winding In and out among the billows were shallow Indentations���camel
tracks In tbe sand.
Ford Cameron turned to his companion.
"Dow long. Abdir
Tbe Arab leaned from his horse untll his face almost touched the sand.
Wltb a single movement of bis lithe
body he sat upright again.   "Ten minutes, salre," he auld, witb a shrug of
the shoulder.
Cameron frowned.
"The last caravan we rnn Into tried
to rob us of what tbe others hadn't
stolen," he muttered.
"Tbls is tbe same one, effendl," remarked Alxll.
"Ilow do you know that?" Cameron's tone was sharp.
Again the Arab shrugged. "1 know!"
"Let us go another way, then," suggested tbe American Impatiently. "My
Journey to the ancient ruins of Gib,
wbere I am to Join the archaeological
expedition, bas already been Interrupted five times by encounters with
bandits and holdups by both Italian
and Turkish scouting parties. Is there
no otber route we may take���oue that
Is less frequented?"
AMI's fierce glance seemed to overleap the billowed desert and became
concentrated on tbe far horizon, where
something glittered for an Instant and
tben vanished.
"Tbere Is a different route that may
prove to be safer," he said at last
"Lend Ihe wi.y, tben," ordered Cameron Impatiently. -
Obediently the Arab wheeled his
horse to the left, away from tbe mute
which tbey hsd chosen snd which wss
the aame taken by the thieving caravan whose camel trucks bad momentarily halted tbeir journey.
As Cameron followed his guide be
occasionally threw a glance over to
the right, where one might reasonably
expect to glimpse seme truce of the
caravan which hod passed only ten
minutes before. He was hoping that
tbey would elude the thieving Arabs
who bad plundered tbeir provisions and
tried to steal tbeir horses. A quick
battle wltb automatic revolvers and a
repeating rtrte had put the Arabs to
flight Bnt they hovered near. One
day's uninterrupted Journey would
brine him to thp expedition camp on
the site of ancient Gib Urgent business had prevented his Joining the party at the appointed place; consequently he bad to make tbls lonely trip
across northern Tripoli with the uncertain loyalty of an Arab dragoman
as his sole dependence.
Cameron decided to be on the lookout for treachery from his dragoman.
"WliaMs that?" he asked suddenly.
Abdl Inclined his ear respectfully.  A
faint yapping sound broke the stillness.
"Jackals," declared  Abdl. shrugging
bis shoulders.
Cameron knew that the Arab lied
and felt tbat bis suspicions were confirmed.   Therefore be aald nothing.
He drank some strong cotfee of his
own preparation and ate a few tinned
biscuits from bis own aaddlebags. He
decided not to sleep that nlgbt In an
unguarded moment Abdl might murder blm wltb s shot from tbe silver
mounted rifle be carried slung over
his burnoose.
Cameron propped bl* saddle against
e sand bIHock and. sitting down, lean
��d bis bead agalnat tbe leather bags.
nis cartridge belt was buckled outside
bia coat and In either band be beld aa
automatic revolver.
The three horses. Ahdl's. his own
and tbe pack horse, wblcb carried bis
luggage. <tt*r* gw��u|ied near at hand.
Once again there came tbe distant
cry-of tbe Jackal"? Cameron lielleved
otherwise. Abdl turned bis bead away
and listened.
"H la ��� ^algnat cry." thought ��aln
eron. wbo knew something of the wire
(ess telegraphy ef tbe desert trltiea
"1 wonder If tt n-latee to my atfalra
or are tbey on tlie trail ef Italian
scontsf Very lltoeiy they are on the
scent of otlier game���something big
ger than I ran offer wltb my meager
equipment nnd sllv*r watch"
After awhile he arose and trtwMwd
himself, offering a splendid target for
Abdl'a rifle, but the tall Ara* did not
even turn hie Mend, lie was muring
out Into tbe fathomless gloom of the
desert as If bis falcon eyea would
ptere* Its mysteries.
Cameron remained standing. He
felt a vafrte iiWrtminfcui Wiping over
him. He tbougb! be m*rA fotstepa
padding lo and ffo In tlie sort naml
{among the hillock*. 1 bife mwnird t��
jbe a burden of whispering lb the still
air, but whenever he grew rigid nnd
tense wltb listening theiv was nothing save the murmuring breeze trou
bllng tbe grains of sand.
The hori.es stirred ttatlessly Md one
ot them whinnied Cameron caught
thf beginning of an answering whinny
-it was never endwl. Bonn-thing
sti Dad It Into silence
���Wbat waa tbat, Abdir aaked Cameron sharply.
The Arab turned. "That, effendl?
Thy servant sneezed."
A grim smile curved Cameron's lips.
"Traitor," be muttered to himself as
he listened.
After thut a great silence fell upou
the desert. Tbe wind ceased blowing.
The horses drooped their beads uud
were quiet Abdl stood a dark stutue
throwing a gigantic shadow on the
Cumeron's eyes ached* wltb the
watching aud wltb a longing for sleep
to cume tu bis burning eyelid*
Suddenly a tiny spark appeared at
tbe top uf a nearby hillock. It dls-
apen red.
Instantly Abdl struck a fusee and
lighted a cigarette. As his lean dark
face was exposed In tbe glow of tbe
brief llgbt Cameron aaw a look of
eagerness spreud over the grim features of bis dragoman.
"A signal," decided Cameron, wondering whether It wuuld not be Winer
to bowl tbe traitor over wltb one shut
now and If there was to be a battle
let It begin at once and have It over
There would be small chance of bis
escaping alive If tbe enemy should
surround blm as they wuuld be likely
to do. Eren now tbey might lie crouching behind the very sand duue against
which be was leuning.
Almost anything was better than the
strain of watting for something tu happen. He would give them ten minutes
more and then���, lle glanced ut bis
watch and saw tbat It wus two hours
after midnight.
fle was Impatient at the Idea of bavlng bis arrival ut Gilt delayed by another day and be could not understand
Abdl's stppldity in prolonging" the Journey except In the light of bavlng betrayed bis master to the bandits.
Abdl smoked his cigarette peacefully and finally flung the burning end
to the ground. Cameron watched for
some answering signal but saw notblng.
"Perhaps tt ls the signal to attack
'now," be muttered and at that Instant
Abdl turned swiftly and yelled at bim.
"Baalek!" (Lookout!) was bts cry. and
It was flung as a warning to Cameron.
Cameron dropped Into Ihe shadow of
the hillock and awaited with quickened
pulses tbe swift padding of feet among
tbe sand dunes. He saw Abdl throw
himself Into a similar attitude and be
was asbsmed that be bad mistrusted
the loyal fellow even as he thrilled
with the realization thnt he wns nut
fighting ulone��� tliere were two uf
Abdl bad the point of vantage; he
could see what was coming. Cameron
watched bis dark form.
Buddenly Abdl sprang to nls full
height and screamed fanatically:
"La illah Allah, Mohammed Rnsoul
ll Allah!"
There came a sharp shot ont of the
silence that followed bis challenging
cry. and tbo Arab tumbled back,
clutching bis arm.
"Come on out of thnt yon Jni-knla!"
sang out a strong English speaking
voice from tbe dlrecttou of the shut
tbat bad wounded Abdl.
Cameron's breath uearly left his
"HI, there! Who are you?" ha called
"The devil!" was the astonishing ox-
plosive retort "Come on. Appleby;
let's Investigate this civilised Individual." And footsteps came nearer, nearer, and finally rounded the tililoi-fc
against which the groaning Alidl leaned, and two men dressed In European
garments and wearing wblte pith helmets appeared.
Tliey stopped st sight of tho group
of three horses, the wounded Arab
and the solitary form of tbe American
In garb similar to tbeir own.
"Appleby, who Is yonr fool friendV
asked Cameron coolly as he approached tbem
"Ford Cameron F ejaculated Appleby, staring with all his might "Have
we been stalking you all the e\*a*
"You have." returned Cameron
grimly. "It's a wonder you dMii't get

"Bandits. We hesrd yon were coming. How? Ivaert wlrclt**. nt course.

He pressed a gold coin Into tht

other two men.

A piano manufacturer recently made a
house-to-house canvass* He's one of those
men with an absurd fear of the "waste-
circulation" bugaboo���cannot get away
from the haunting thought that only 10 out
of every 100 readers of a newspaper may
be possible buyers of his goods.
So he refused to advertise, and went
canvassing���inviting people to come to
his piano recitals. Then he wondered why
they didn't come.
Thla la why:
He WASN'T reaching the people.
. His canvaaaers rang every doorbell
ln town. They talked to some one ln
every houae.
" But one in every household Isn't
enough���particularly It it doean't happen to be the right peraon���lt was a
servant or a Child, the woman of the
bouae was seldom seen; tbe man ot

j Now, If the piano maker had placed
an ad. in the newspaper, It would have
reached thousands, where tbe canvaaaers conld reach only hundreds.
And eyea though only 10 per eent.
cf the readers are actual piano buyers,
thla does.not mean.that the advertie-
i lng read by the other 90 per eent la

to tbe prospective buyer, but alao to

pretty soon tbere will be a piano In

Mlss Eva Mylott at St. Patrick's Hall
���Mlaa Hilda Aiken  in  Three
A great musical treat was provided
on Saturday night in St. Patrick's
Hall, by the Australian contralto, Mla.i
Eva Mylott's recital. The possessor
of a rich contralto voice, of wide rang*
and great flexibility, allied to a temperament which appreciates the inner
meaning the the songs she sings, MIbj
Mylott could not help making a sue
cess of her art.
Greeted by an audience who were
prepared to enjoy the fare provided,
Mlss Mylott opened her program with
two numbers, singing the original
Italian. With the flrst few notes
from her voice the assembled company knew they would not be dlsap
pointed of their expectations, and as
the timbre of her low' notes, and the
brilliance of her high ones was revealed, they became only moro enthusiastic as the program was pro
ceeded with.
There were songs in Italian, In
French, in German and in English. In
each of the languages ln turn Mi3M
Mvlott'B enunciation was clear ami
distinct. Of the many styles Included
ln her numbers the interpretation waa
good from end to end. In the dignl
led, ns in the light and dainty, she
was equally at home, and not less so
i the tragedy of her concluding number, "The Cry of Rachel."
Several of the items were encored
and at the end the people were Insistent for "one after the last," to which
Mlss Mylott graciously responded by
singing "Home, Sweet Home." Shi
had as her associate Miss Hilda Aik

accompanist, appeared as solo plan
iste, soprano vocalist. She rendered
two pianoforte solos, which were well
received, and at a later stage sang a

appreciated, and in response to a
hearty encore gave another of th��

"Give me a church with only fifty
members imbued with the right spirit
and they will outstrip a church with
500," declared Rev. J. S. Henderson in
St. Andrews Presbyterian church last
night while speaking cn the useless-
ness of religion if it were not put into
He said that he was tired when h,>
went out of the church to find its
weakness. The religion of the prosen*
day appeared to be a thing of whims
and it was only when it ceased to be
such that it gave life an influence for
good that had effect. Conformity to
the world never elevated. The Christian who tried to agree with the world
made a great mistake. Too many had
lost the power of moral Indignation
and passed over things which should
not have heen passed over.
Mr. Henderson illustrated his ser
mon by refining to the power of thS
disciples of Christ. They received
their strength through the divine
spirit and from no other source could
Christian power come. The power of
a Christian lay fn his religion and Its
influence and effect for good on the
