VOLUME 7, N5?-7 JR. 119
Desires of Fifth Street Rate*
.payers Concurred In By
City Council.
All Wires to Be Placed In Conduits���
Will   Approach  Telephone   '
In the opinion of Alderman Kellington, chairman of the board of works
the decision arrived at by the joint
meeting of the city council and the
Fifth street ratepayers yesterday
morning in regard to au extensive local improvement lighting scheme, on
Fifth street will have a very important bearing on the future lighting
and laying out of Improvements, in
the  residential  streets.
The plan decided upon by the meeting was to place all lighting ahd telephone wires in conduit, concealed beneath the thirty-six foot boulevard
which will divide the proposed two
thirty-six foot bltulithic roadways on
certain streets. Connections to the
houses would be made beneath the
pavement in the same manner as water or ���sewers are at the present time,
while uinsightly telegraph poles, telephone wires and derrick are lights
would be replaced by neat Iron standards ln the centre of the boulevard
surmounted by a white globed arc.
which would cast light on all sides
and not be shadowed by overhanging
The Street Beautiful.
Mr. J. J. Mahoney, the spokesman
(or the Fifth street deputation, wished th�� committee of the council to
understand that the city would not
be required to pay for the proposed
Improvements. It was to be strictly
financed by the property owners who
were desirlous only of making the
street one of the most beautiful ln
the city.
Alderman Kellington, on behalf of
the city, stated that the action of the

Instruct   Electrician.
Many American cities on the Paci-
Clc slope, declared the alderman, were
advocating similar streets to ���this, and
be thought it would be well if the cltv
electrician, Mr. Patrick Bowler, should
be Instructed to evolve a consistent
scheme of lighting and submit It to
the council at an early date. This
might be optionally adopted by the
ratepayers of other city streets as the
opportunity afforded.
The suggestion of Alderman Kellington was put In the form of a motion and adopted, and he was asked
to proceed immediately with the

Greek    Restaurant   Keeper   Knocked
Girl Insensible to Floor���Fined
Twenty  Dollars.
In pronouncing sentence on George
Spilos, a Greek restaurant keeper of
Uegbie street, convicted of assaulting
a girl employed by bim as a waitress,
Magistrate Edmonds yesterday morning regretted that $20 and costs was
the heaviest penalty he could impose
under the circumstances.
His worship remarked that, as it
appeared to him, every feature of the
case had been particularly brutal and
unwarranted in that there had been
absolutely no excuse fcr the action
of the accused in striking the girl.
The young lady, who was the informant in the case, mounted the witness box with bruises caused by
Spilos' fist still plainly/evident upon
her face. She stated that she had
been employed by him fn the cafe for
some time as a waitress. He had
made indecent proposals to her, aud
this had been partly responsible fos
her decision to leave.
..She informed her employer of her
Intention, and asked for her wages. A
quarrel ensued, and In the heat of
passion Spilos struck her heavily in
the face, knocking her to the floor insensible.
The girl exhibited several minor
bruises on the arms in support of
her statement that she had been
struck more than once.
Spilos did not offer any defence,
pleading guilty to the charge.

Victoria, July 24.���To enter the service of the Fraser River Mills, the little, towboat Dreadful, Capt. Manning,
will pass up at the end of the week
en route from Newcastle, Eng., for
Vanoouver. She will call off this
port to pick up a pilot to take her to
the Terminal City. Word was received from San Diego yesterday stating that the tug had put in there on
Saturday for coal. She got away on
the last leg of her long voyage yesterday and she should thake the run
up the coast in flve or six days.
The Dreadful ls making a fast trip
from the United Kingdom, reaching
the California port 75 days out from
Glasgow. This is one of the fastest
passages made for some years by a
vessel of the size of the Dreadful and
she Is making better time than some
of the larger steamers that have arrived recently. She should complete
the 15,000-mile voyage In about 82
days, The steam trawler Orontes.
which arrived here only a short time
ago from Bowling, Scotlan*, took over
100 days to come around Cape Horn.
The Dreadful Is to engage In towing the booms of logs from the logging camps to the mills at New Westminster. 8he was built by Messrs.
Jones, Pollock & Sons, on the
Thames, and is a staunch craft. The
Dfeadfut will be overhauled at Vancouver before she commences her
duties on this coast as a towboat.

.Marama on which they were traveling, Mra. J. li. B. and Miss Florence
McLeod, arrived at their home in this
city yesterday after a live months'
trip to Australia.
ihe travelers had a most enjoyable
time while away and visited all thc
leading towns of the eastern section
of Australia as well as Auckland, New
Zealand. Suva and Honolulu.
"Leaving Westminster on February
21, Mrs. and Miss McLeod took, passage at Vancouver on one of the Australian liners for the land of the
Southern Cross. The first call made
after leaving the Terminal City was
at Victoria, which was merely for the
purpose of taking on a f^w passengers
and mails. Eight days after leaving
the Capital the steamer reached Honolulu, the famous city of the Hawaiian
islands. A stay of several hours was
made here, and the tourists went
ashore and visited some of the most
attractive spots of the mid-Pacific
Suva, in the Fiji islands, was the
next stop after leaving Hawaii, and
then the vessel proceeded straight to
Auckland, the great port of northern
New Zealand, where the steamer laid
up for another short period. About
three weeks after leaving Vancouver
tbe distant shores of Australia were
sighted aud the port of Sydney was
Sydney Harbor.

s^Viertfl'-Other places were visited.    ���
The ladles were .very much Impressed by the beautiful harbor of
Sydney, which is said to be the larg
est and finest in the world, but considered the city itself rather old
fashioned. Very few of the streets of
this place, Mlss McLeod statad, were
straight and modern and it is said
that tbey were made originally out
of old bullock trails which used to
run in all directions from the town
when it was not quite so large as lt
is at the present time. Tbe tourists
however, thoroughly enjoyed their
stay there and were rather sorry to
Mrs. and Miss McLeod considered
that Melbourne was the best city In
Australia on account of its modern
and beautiful appearance. The travelers were very much struck with the
excellent suburban steam train service tbat is operated In Melbourne.
This they declared to be a decided
improvement on the existing means
of suburban transportation In Vancouver and New Westminster and the
traveling charges were reasonable.
"Tbe states of Victoria and. Queensland," Baid Miss McLeod, "were suffering greatly from drought when we
were there, despite- the Wet that It
was winter time in Australia. The
cattle and sheep as well as human beings suffered greatly, and ln some
places through which we had occasion to pass thero had been ho rain
for over three months, and as a result there was very little grass left
for the cattle and sheep to feed on.
"We kuow of one instance where a
man lost 700 head of sheep by starvation, and cattle and rabbits were dying in large numbers throughout the
affected area dally. Of course, the
farmers were glad to see the rabbits
die as they are considered a pest in
thc country, but it was a different
thing when thetr flocks and herds
began to decrease with the scarcity
of grass and the unusual heat  .
"In som| places every scrap of
jreen was either burned up or eaten
and we often wondered how the surviving animals managed to eke out
their lives."
.    Call England "Home."
Speaking of the characteristics of
the Australian people. Mlss McLeod
said: "The people of Australia are
very English in both their style of
living and .dress, and thay would be
iiard to beat for hospitality. Everybody ls loyal to the British empire
and they think a great deal of 'Home'
\b they call England, Scotland and
Ireland. -
"In New Zealand the people are
'ven mere patriotic to Britain than
ihe people of Australia, and they are
always prepared to demonstrate
'.heir loyalty."
Australia, Miss McLeod thought,
was not sp far adyaped as Canadi
'.n the way cf modern butldlngst electricity and such like. The crying
lecessltles In the court.rv at the presort t'me, Mlss McLeod sa'd,'were
farr' laborers and -domestic servants.

Labor Leader and Crowd Ask God to
Strike  Lord Devonport Dead���
London, July 24.���Volleys of stones
were exchanged and many men hurt
in a tight between striking duck
workers and strike breakers at the
Clyde Shipping company's dock this
morning. The strikers to the number of thousands, tried to break down
or scale the walls, out tne polite
clubbed the strikers off.
Ben Tillott, the labor leader, pray
ed publicly at a mass meeting ou
Tower Hill today, for the death of
Lord Devonport, the inn who the
strikers consider the bitterest oi
their enemies among the empire.
Strike Him Dead.
The strikers in Tillett's audience repeated after him in thunderous
chorus: "Oh, God, strike Lord Devon
port dead."
James O'Grady, M.P., v-ho withdrew
from the House of Con-;>ions because
the speaker would not permit a debate on the strike, referred to Lord
Devonport as tbe "earth's best criminal."
The control of the strikers' families
has become difficult. The streets ate
filled with hollow-eyed women and
children. Many have died, wholly
from starvation. The number of victims is so great that the authorities
and private charitable organizations
are unable to cope witlj the situation.
Lord Devonport is chairman of the
port of London. He was formerly H
K. B. Early, M.P. for the Devonport
division, and was made apeer In 1908.

press calling for tenders contained no
notification that a cheque was required, and consequently a -deposit had
not been enclosed.

He was a partner with Judge Elwln

piled an equal share. of the capital
necessary for bringing the cattle for
breeding purposes Into the country.
Mr. Bowe and his friend the judge

to Bring Back Dean to

tWl the result of a conference wbleh I
Cblot otWoltoe Bradshaw will holOhsft
Seattle -today with the Plnkerton detectives employed in running the perpetrators of the Bank of Montreal
robbery to earth, wlll hinge several
important Issues which have been
slowly but surely maturing for weeks
and months past.
One of the most important of these
wiU be tbe removal of Charles Dean,
one of the most notorious of tbe several suspects from the prison in Los
Angeles where he has been detained
for a matter of six months or so, to
the Westminster jail. Dean fought
extradition doggedly, and his attitude
caused a considerable loss of time for
those who had the law on their side,
but on Tuesday the last obstacle was
removed from the path of the Canadian authorities wbeu the extradition
papers were signed, and the Los Angeles police declared their ". ilingness
to relinquish ali claim on the man.
Hefore he left last evening Chief
Cradshav declared that it wa-s- iworo
than possible tnat be would bring
Dean back with bim when he returned one week hence . This, however,
would depend largely upon the decision reached at the meeting today.
It was to be a communion of the
powers, and its portent would be decidedly disquieting, to several suspects, ot which as yet the public had
not heard. Nothing definite, however,
could be given to the press at this
stage as the advantageous moment
had not yet arrived.
Inspector Ahearn, of thc Pinker-
ton's, who ls directing the case for
the Bank of Montreal, passed through
this city on Tuesday on his way to
Victoria, where he has recently been
retained ln another Important case.

Fays Eloquent Tribute to
Late Judge Mabee.
The flrst anl dominant impre?
made by Judge Mabee, as presi'
officer and directing genius of
Railway Commission was one of pow
er. A man of magnificent physi^iM.
with a keen intellect and a faculty
for epigrammatic expression; he was
master of his court, and nl every
qtiestion and situation which came
before it. Patient and considerate
w;.h the untried lawyer cr the liti-
g;...t without counsel, he was merci-
leci in tearing to pieces any sophistical argument presented to him by
counsel learned in the law. Lacking
something perhaps of the patient industry and talent for analysis which
distinguished his predecessor, tho late
Judge Killam. he brought to tha work
of the commission much of the spirit
which animated the latter during his
brief service and supplemented this
with a boldness snd originality peculiarly his own. He thoroughly grasped
the underlying purpose of the railway
act, namely, the establishment of a
sympathetic tribunal to adjudicate tli *
grievances ol the plain people and
the  municipalities  against, the great

their lives.    At the  Dome the week
before the fateful July II they had
had a tough fight with fire nud had
dug s reservoir in the centre of the
propeity to supply wster for the pipes
that had been laid from one end ol
the property to the other. When
therefore the fire leaped down on ths
Dome from the bush that hot afternoon Mr. Meek and everyone else
thought they were well prepared to
meet it, and he and his staff fought
it till the last gasp. He remained so
long, in fact, that he did not arrive
back at his own house, where his wife,
his wife's mother, Mrs. Paddock, and
his two children were, before the
flames had leaped clear over the intervening space which had been cleared and set his house on fire. With
him were F. Battersby 1). G'. Bissett,
L. H. Solman and a man named Cooper, all of the Dome staff.
The fire raged around them, cutting
off  every  chance   of  escape   and  for
what seemed eternities they huddled
nn the little grass plot near the rain-
barrels.    When   all   appeared   to   be
over, Mr. Meek says that he can just
remember seeing a face appear out of
the  smoke and  a  minute  afterwards
he felt a splash of water on his face.
It was Fdward Bell, who was ladling
water out of the barrels with his old,
soft felt hat.   Then he lest consciousness. He learned from Bell afterwards,
though the foreman carpenter of the
Dome does not talk iiiue'i abo'it tho
incident, that when  he arrived  Mrs.
Meek's skirt and  foot were   on   flre;
.ind  that he flrst applied  himself t>
putting   it   out.     Then,   coolly   and.
calmly, while the fire swept all living
organising out of existence all around
him   and   the   hot   air- scorched, the
lungs, he continued  to dip ir.to tha
barrels,  sou*e  himself  and  distribute
the  water  impartially  over the  proa
trate  figures   round  nlm.
The fire was at its heiaht at two
o'clock, at four the danger was over,
snd Edward Boll and a few square
inches of grass had savr I gpv^n people. They had grHT.etl deatli, but tliey
were alive mainly because Edward
Bell walked out a sons of comparative safety into a whirlwind of smoke
and flame and for a lull hour, never
knowing when he would be roasted
alive, with a level heud ftnd a steady
hand, threw water out of hi* old liat
wherever hc snw a spark full or a
flame burst nut on the exhausted (inures round the water barre'.s.
Edward Bell still works at the
Dnme. and it is safe to say that the
me,i who work for him and tlio��e
win work with him know nothing of
this story, for he is not that kind of
man; he acts, he doesn't talk. But
Mr. Meek did talk, aud he talked to

matter up whole-heartedly ami lni.)
the facts beiore the Carnegie Hen'

While Judue Ms bee, on the bench,
brushed aside technicalities and stood
in little awe of precedents, ha was
laborious and exact in all his investigations and many of his written opin-
i iona will long remain as monuments
I to his industry. His great faculty,
however, was his immediate instinctive sense of right and justice. He
was to some extent handicapped by
the failure of Parliament to establish
standards and principles Ior the guidance of the commission and was often
compelled to limit his judgments by
the somewhat arbitrary rates and classifications so elaborately huilt up hy
the railways of this continent antH
sanctioned by the United States Inter-
sta'^e Commerce Commission, a body
also handicapped by the timidity uf
Uie national legislature. On the other
hand, in certain cases, notably in
the case of the Toronto viaduct, he
entered decrees, knowing them to the
ultra vires of the Railway Act, heing
confident that Parliament would ratify
th�� same by curative legislation.
One of his last decisions was thst
rendered at Ottawa on April 10. which
placed upon the railway companies
the onus of justifying higher freight
rates in the we.-t than those prevailing
in the east of Canada.
He la^t sat in the commission at
the hearings in Toronto on April 29.
He presided with his usual force snd
ability, holding counsel well in hand
and expediting the business before
him. One matter which came up was
nn application from a citizen in Locust Hill, who had several complaints
to make ahout the railway company.
"This mnn," said an official, "has
written about twenty letters making
al^ sorts of complaints."
"Oh well." said the chairman *mil^
ingly, "he is evidently an Irishman
and he is entitled to write all the
letters  he wants to."
It will !>e hard to replace Judge
Mabee. When Judge Killam died
many felt that the Government hsd a
hard task hefore it in choosing his
successor, but the Laurier Government
measured up to the task superbly
when   it selected  the  late  chairman.
Thero will be no division of sentiment throughout the country. He
was a big man in every serine of the
word, brave, ahle. and public-spirited. He adorned the bench and shed
lustre upon the Railway Commission.

Rainbow's  Complement   Return

Absolute Failure.
Or Britain Will���Petition for rtedress
of Red Rubber Atrocities in
'We Furnish Your Home Complete."
bert & Sullivan aspect, ln a week or
two the cruiser Rainbow will be depleted of half of her complement as
tho agreements under which the men
Signed on are about to expire and 50
of them will roturn to England leaving the cruiser half-manned and with
no prospects of securing more men.
When Sir Wilfrid Laurier launched
his navy scheme  with  thc  old   cruisers Nioble  and   Rainbow, purchased
��& for training purposes, the  ships were
manned by the royal naval men who
signed on for the Canadian Government, some for two years, some for
three years and a small number for
, five years. These men worked the
ships out to Halifax and Esquimalt respectively and were full of enthusiasm
at the beginning.
In the case of the Rainbow, she
paid her first visit to Vancouver on
Nov. 23, 1910, when Commander Stewart voiced the sentiments of the
ship's company. But the reluctance
of the Canadian boy to go to sea was
something which could not be foreseen and so the Rainbow has been on
the coast 20 months and the recruiting has been an absolute failure. Furthermore, the cruiser has also lost a
number of the royal navy men who
came out for instructional purposes.
The last time the cruiser was in Vancouver she was short-handed below
and d'd not muster a full sea watch
on dec!<. The two-year men whose
time ts up shortly, are all going back
to England, and the Rainbow seems
destined to become a fixture at Esquimalt dockyard, for no recruits have
come on. ^^^^^_
It is well known that the sailors
have not been delighted with the
treatment meted out by the Canadian
Government. The pay and victualling
allowances are lower than the scale
obtaining in the Australian service
and another matter which has caused
irritation is that men on the small
tugs used for government fisheries
protection are drawing nearly double
the pay of the trained men on the
Rainbow who have been engaged in
��� similar work.
In view of the great interest In
Premier Borden's forthcoming announcement of a navy policy for Can-
) ada, it is well to bear In mind that the
formation of a Canadian navy, if the
department of naval service, depends
on Canadians to man the ships, will
be a matter of extreme difficulty.
Twenty months on the coast, practically no recruits, many trained men

Seventy-Five  P-r   cent   of Wheat   in
"Winnipeg, July 24.���The Free Pres3
crop report today says:
"In the Interval which has elapsed
since the last report appeared on July
9, the weather has twice been exceptionally cold, with touches of frost at
a number of places. Reports of Hessian fly and excessive hail damage
were current about the grain exchange.
"Ninety-three points reported 75
per cent of the wheat in blossom.
"Eighty-six points, well distributed
over the three provinces reported
frost varying from 1 to 7 degrees.
Twenty-seven points report additional
hail damage since the last report, and
ten points report damage from Res-
sian fly. This d.image is very slight,
with the exception of one point,
which reports 20 per cent.
A very few points report damage
from cut worm, these principally in
Alberta. A Bmall portion of points report rain still needed, but 19 points
report needing sunshine.
It has generally; been held by farmers and others experienced in wheat
that one degree of frost damages

from tests just made, however, by
Prof. Bedford, the new deputy minister of agriculture, that it depends on
the state of thc blossom, and that
while the blosj im is always exceptionally suscepti'ile lo change of temperature, there io a stage when it is
said to bear a sl'gfct degree of frost
without apparent Injury.
"It will not be possible to ascertain
the damage until the wheat is threshed. Very often partially filled heads
which are attributed to blight are
really due to a frost nip In the blossom stage."

HUMOR Or  Ba*Lo*uL.
The following statement, which waa
Kivenjyestefa��y afterneon �� Mr.
Wait) r ThonJltMif^romfttoat i^atlrnc*,
tor o   Vancouver, shows the trend of
��� feelin f thntiisisleta oailbediVwH libs"
lano ver the action of tbe Vancouver
lacroi it* team In cresting a deadlock
ki siiy n. C. Lacrosse association.
Mr./'ihomas, while feeling reluctant
to ;;ivi; out any statements. Is of the
���opinion that the real cause of tho
preseht crisis must be laid against
the Vancouver press In their partial
nnd Misleading reports of the games
played tbls season.
Ills.statement la as fellows:
"Thfe real lovers of sport ln Vancouver view the present regrettable
deadlock ln lacrosse circles with
alarm! I have followed the game for
the plet twenty years, and have had
the pfcasure of witnessing nearly all
the gknes between tbe Westminster
and Vancouver teams. Also In 1910
J had an opportunity of becoming acquainted with the inside workings of
the league. ���
"I Am (Irmly of the opinion that
thefe are hundreds of true sports ln
Vancouver wbo, after witnessing the
last game in New Westminster, think
that the local club was perfectly within its rights in refusing to play in
Vancouver last Saturday.
"The game referred to was reported
In the. Vancouver press as sterling
lacrosse of the finest brand, whereas
the tactics of the champions under
the direction of Mr. Jones was without exception, the poorest exhibition
of lacrosse on the part of Vancouver
that   the   spectators  have .ever   wit-
��� nesscd. |
"Sportsmen    In Vancouver   regard
the threat of Mr. Con Jones to put on
two eastern teams at the same time
as    the Westminster   'exhibition    as
little else but childish, to say nothing
of its al .solute lack ot sportsmanship.
The proposition to bring out another
casterfo team would be very unpopular in 'Vancouver, and, speaking for
hundreds of fans in that city, would
prov* a dismal failure.    Such games
would be  lacking of the  -snap    and
spice that the Westminster team has,
and would certainly give the sport o'n
i the coast a black eye from which   it
would take years to recover.
"The people of Vancouver, taken on
the  whole, are good sports and  will
not tolerate or support any brand of
'ieros��e inferior to    that    which    we
have bad the pleasure of witnessing
fnr nome time past with the exception
. of the one on July 13.      ,    .

Bill Carey, part owner of the
Springfield Club of the Connecticut
League, tells a funny one. Recently
a manager of one of the clubs in a
semi-pro. league came to htm In
search of a good pitcher. "What's the
matter with you>- present pitcher?"
asked Mr. Carey. "Hasn't he won
every game this season for you?"
"Yes," replied the manager, "but last
week he won by only one run." It
got a little too close ��� for comfort for
the semi-pro. manager.

tjoeptfoned as to whether fh�� Marama on her return trip, arrived at
Honolulu at the same time as the
Zealandia reached there with the Vancouver cadets who started out on a
trip to Australia about two weeks
ago, Silos McLeod stated that the
Marama arrived and left just one day
ahead of the other steamer.
Ermine Broke Down.
While within a day's journey of Victoria, one of the shafts of the Mara-
ma's engines broke down and the
steamer had to proceed for a few

the Capital City, however, the engines of the liner were again got into
working order and she arrived in

Miss McLeod is looking extremelv

Several baseball statisticians claimed thst McCormick won rnore than
20 games In succession, i Rube Mar-
m-n-d "ith his list ot consecutive vie-
just now.
Richardson, the. great Surrey .cricketer, met with a tragic end In France,
nnd now comes news that GeOrge J.
Ilonner, one of the most striking figures In Australian cr'tckeL has passed
the prey ferry.
A prominent member of the New
South Wales team and a distinctive
figure || test cricket In the early 80's,
he wasmnc of the hardest hitters that
ever liJfd. juid with" the single exceptor. f.f r,llb*rt Jessop, had that magic
gift of frouslng more than other men,
the enthusiasm of the crowds to fever
���iHnh. Vor although as a rule Bonner seldom stayed long at the crease,
he was not the man to waste his time
while he was there, and a couple of
overs during which his heavy bat was
swinging was warranted to do tar
more to demoralize a bowler than a
careful display lasting 20 minutes.
Bonnor's height was the remarkable
one of 6 feet 6 inches, and he was an
almost j perfectly proportioned man.
His grent head was crowned with a
mass of vellow hair, hla sun-tanned
fiee was frtfiged with a short yellow
beard, and as he stponed he looked
the very" king among his fellows. Na-
t'"-allv he was generally out through

thi. respect one ot hla sayings is
worth quoting.
He said once:   "If I oonld only re-

nortjon. reuularitv or irreenlarity.
This indicates the- disposition and
m.-asure of your facilities, your method of thinking and feelinq. Pathoe-
nomy is to be sfndied in the skin, its
' color, tension, and relaxation. It
gives evidence nf the passions, the
actual state of the spirit within, and
| the use it has made of its natural
gifts: '
' Foreheads seen in profile may be
divided into three broad classes���
those that are projecting above, flat
on the eyebrows, those retreating from
behind well-developed -brows, and
those perpendicular. Generally speaking, people with'prominent eyebones
act promptly, on the judgment, per-
' haps the passion nf the moment. Bnt
they err very seldom, for their gifto
of intuition and extremely rapid deduction guide tbem Tightly.
High foreheads, lacking in this
quick spirit, pause and consider the
matter before taking action, and, being \*n* imaginative, less passionate,
less resourceful and tactful, they cannot afford to make mistake.
The man of action has a short forehead and prominent browa; the man.
of intellect hlgfi. well-developed tem-'
pies. A forehead square on the temples and retreating into the hair on
either side is indicative of lasting
memory and well-balanced judgment.
The typical forehead of a leader of
men is that 6/ Viscount Kitchener-
short, compressed, with prominent
eye-bones and thick, straight brows,
square and receding on th.e temples.
People with this manner oT forehead
cannot fail to judge character nf circumstances with quickness and accuracy; they store away observations
in a retentive memory and act <-n
conclusions with promptness and decision.
lt is singular to note that Bismarck
sid Li Hung Chang both showed the
distinctive signs of immense cuteness
and genius for intrigue���namely, the
eye-bones that project so sharplr ns
to cause the hair of the brows to bristle outwards���and the careers ol these
two statesmen stand in corroboration.
But it is the eyes of the individual
which kfford most reward to the character-reader.
Eyes are the mirror of the soul.

grudge that it has fallen to the lot of
our political opponents to be in office
