Cholera Epidemic Favors Turks Who Transform Famous
Mosque Into Hospital to Check Bulgarian Ambition-Allies
Far From Base of Supplies While Fresh Ottoman Troops
Pour in from Asia Minor���Plenipotentiaries Meet.
London, Nov. 20.���The war has
shifted for a time from the Held of
arms to that of diplomacy. It may
be that the war Is near an end. Plenipotentiaries for the belligerent powers wtll meet tomorrow at the vll-
lay" of Madeinkeul, a few miles outside the capital, for a preliminary discussion of the terms of an armistice.
In the meantime the Turkish, Bulgarian and Servian commanders hav!
ordered a cessation of hostilities, although cannonading, which Nazlm
Pasha reported as unimportant, took
place this morning.
The sweeping terms' which the
allies were said to have demanded
yesterday as a basis for the armistice
appear not to have been advanced,
but it is almost certain that they will
be on the basis of the Balkan states
holding all the conquered country until a permanent treaty of peace is
The Cholera Spectre.
How much of his former power
th'ey are prepared to concede the
Turks depends largely upon two factors���the strength and supplies of the
allied army threatening the gates of
Constantinople and the" extent to
which the cholera spectre has embarrassed their plans.
It is certain that great transport
difficulties hamper the Bulgarian
army on account of the distance from
their oase and the rough roads.
Cholera Is counted on by the Turks
to weaken the Bulgarian ambition for
a triumphal march into the Turkish
capital and the celebration ot mass
lu St, Sophia. As a further check
against entering the Mos ine. the Turk
has restored to the amazing plan of
transforming the Mcsque Into a pest
house, and has crowded 200 cholera
stricken patients within Its walla.
As In the Daya of Old.
Athens, Nov. 20.���An official report
from Trlkala, Thessaly, says thi
Turcc-Alpania chief, Beklr Aga, wi^h
a thousand irregulars, taking advantage of the advance of the Greek army
towards the Interior of Macedonia
made a sudden night attack on Gre
vena. He drove out the Inhabitants
and pillaged and burned the shops.
Peace Looms Up.
��� Constantinople. Nov. 20.���Nazim
Pasha, commander-in-chief ot th?
Turkish army; Izzet Pasha, chief of
general staff of the war office and lai<'
���commander-in-chief ln Yemen,'' anc
Chadcn Bey, councillor ot state, have
been appointed Ottoman plenipotentiaries for the negotiationa of an
armistice with the Bulgarian representatives.
The question of peace looms large!
in the foreground. The fact that the
official communications with regard
to the Bulgarian reply lasued at Con-.
stantlnople and Sofia make no mention of preliminary conditions, has
given rise to comment, aa lt was generally expected that Bulgaria would
insist upon fixing bases before consenting to begin negotiations.
Indeed, the belief was general that
Bulgaria would demand the capitulation of Adrianople and other fortified
places, and the foreign minister recently told the ambassadors that Turkey would refuse to entertain any
auch stipulations.
War Until Signed.
- Apparently Bulgaria has found good
reasons for refraining from such an
attitude, especially as the entering
upon pour purlers will not compel the
supenslon of hostilities until the
armistice actually has been signed.
Aa has been pointed out, the question of cholera complicates the Issue
at Tchatalja. and today lt la rumored
the Bulgarians are retiring to more
sanitary positions baek of Tchatalja.
A violent cannonading, audible this
afternoon ln the direction of Derkos.
would indicate that some engagement
ls progressing ln that quarter,
This morning all waa quiet fa the
neighborhood of Blyuk Chekmedyl and
Tchatalja, but Vresh troopa are arriving daily by steamer and train
from Asia Minor.
Naval Contingents.
The Porto baa applied to the embassies and legations for the withdrawal of the naval contingents landed on Monday, on the ground that
tbeir presence la not necessary, while
it Is added that ahould danger arte.
there wlll be time enough to take
measures of precaution.
The ambassadors and ministers today discussed tbe request. It la under
stood they decided to leave the matter ln abeyance for the present.
A telegram from Nazlm Pasha
"There was no aevere fighting today. A slight cannbnade and fulllaado
were exchanged at the right and left
Wings. We have collected the arraa
and other elfecta abandoned yesterday
by the enemy."
St. Sophia aa Hospital.
It ls believed generally that the object of the authorities In quartering
2000 patients In the Mosque of St.
Sophia la to deter any enemies from
setting foot within tbe building. The
talk in the Sophia papera regarding
the singing of Te Deum In that liis
torlc pile undoubtedly produced an
impression on the Turkish government which resorted to this oriental
expedient of thwarting such a design.
A letter from Drama says that long
before the Bulgarians approached tho
town the authorities were seized with
panic and besought the foreign consuls to arrange a peaceable surrender
Next day the governor, the mllltla
rommancier and the commander of tha
gendarmerie, attired in mufti, abau
doned the place, while many of th1?
soldiers and gendarmerie imitated
their example.
For   Telephones���Company  Installing
Additional Circuits���Westminster
Cutovsr by December 15.
The cut-over of the New Westminster common battery system, an event
which it was expected would have
been history by this time, has been
unavoidably delayed through the non-
receipt of material from manufacturers, states "Telephone Talks." the official organ of the B. C. Telephone company.
Lacking the material, which had
been on order for months, lt was
found impossible to complete the work
tn accordance with the schedule ot
progress laid out when the transformation of tbe service was undertaken.
If everything goes smoothly It    ls
confidently expected that the cut-over
| will take place not later than December 15.
The necessary material has been
received by the company for the con
struction, of two additional circuits between New Westminster and Ladner.
he stringing of wbich Is to be started
immediately. A Circuit will also be
���nstalled between New Westminster
and Milner, and an additional one be
tw6en this city and Cloverdale.
The rapid settlement of the lower
Fraser valley on the southern side of
the river has been responsible for a
large increase ln telephone traffic between the outlying districts and West
minster, this city being the commercial and social centre of the territory.
The .modern rancher apparently requires telephone service In common
with tbe city business man, and thn
influx of settlers to tho valley has
therefore brought about a demand for
telephones that has taxed the existing
facilities and made necessary the extension of old lines and .the construction ot new onea through the territory.
Hard  Day for Interpreter and  ��
grapher���Application for Dii
missal Refused.
The third day ot the trial of Isshni
Singh II was opened by Mr. J. A. Rub
sell, counsel for the defence, pleading
fur the dismissal of the case on the
grounds thut there was no case to
gp to the jury with, that tbe crown
had utterly failed to prove the part
of their Indictment which aet out that
between 7 p.m. on August 14 and the ^
morning of August 15, 1912, accused
had not been In Vancouver. Another
point advanced waB the alleged faulty
Interpretation. Mr. Justice Murphy repelled tbe application.
Then counsel for the defence in
formed the court that as he had
eleven witnesses to examine the trial
would last the whole day. Accordingly
the unempannelled jurors and witnesses in the remaining untried case?
were dismissed for the day and tbe
case proceeded until Mr. Wilkinson,
the Hindustani and Punjaubl interpreter, complained at 4:30 p.m. of exhaustion and the court moat sympathetically expressed that the interpre
ter and stenographer must be considered and adjourned the court untll
A sensational incident In yesterday's trial was the assertion of a wit
ness, Googur Singh, an employee of
tbe Walsh Sash and Door factory, in
answer to Mr. Russell, that he had
been prevented by Mr. Law of that
company from attending the assizes
on Tuesday. Mr. Law is an important
witness for the crown. He said Mr.
Law was the timekeeper and would
not give him leave.
This raised a question between
counsel on both sides and the court
as to whether this Googar Singh was
the man Mr. Law referred to. Ultimately it was decided to recall Mr.
Law, Mr. Grant, for the crown, in
dlgnantly repudiating the slightest
suggestion that the prosecution wat
unwilling to produce any witness call
ed for ln order to elucidate the real
tacts of the case.
Then the weary reiteration of contradictions, witnesses for the defence
swearing stoutly tbat both Isshar
Blngh and the accused and his nam<-
sake the convict were in Vancouver
on the night that witnesses for the
prosecution Just as positively took
their Sikh oaths that they were ln
New Westminster.
Mr. Grant, for the crown, subjected
them to the most rigorous cross-examination, getting generally slmilat
oriental parries as were given to Mr.
An element of humor waa Introduced by one of the defence Siughs.
Pressed by Mr. Grant as to whether
!t was a Sunday a certain occurrence
happened, he replied in English he
was not the timekeeper.
It is fairly safe to prophecy th-:
case will last most of today.

Thi Proud and Independent, Yet Al-
ways Charming, Geisha of Japan.
The geisha arose naturally out of
ihe peculiar citiditions ol Japanese
civilization. In u country where
Confucianism so restricted women
��� hat it \\&z not considered proper (or
them to uppear ut gay or public
functions as the companions of men
the need of tlie eternul feminine was
nevertheless fell, as a waitress, if for
on other reason; and if a waitress
was necessary, why should she not
be a womnn of grace and accomplishments? Moreover, the house of the
average Japanese gentleman was on
too small a scale to become a convenient place fpr comfortably banqueting in, so thnt the host usually
had to tnke his guests to a restaurant,
where the company was naturally
waited on by the maids of the establishment.
Men and women do not dance in
real Japanese society. All dancing
is by women*, and the geisha is the
ideal exponent of the art
The dancing of the geisha is nn art
of a high order; and no one who has
witnessed it can regard it as otherwise than a lu rmless if not aesthetic
form   of   entertainment.     Then   the
?:eisha combines with her capacity
o: entertainment the further essential of waitr.'s;. Aa a waitress she
is perfection. Thus she is a person
of numerous accomplishments. She
can dance, sing, play the sumisen.
chut, tell stories, and smooth the way
for genial conversation in a manner
thnt gives a Japanese feast its most
enduring chnrm.
The Japanese geisha is, then, a pro-
/essional waitress and entertainer.
She is th�� outcome of thnt advanced
state of society which marks a careful
division vif lubor. She is a professional and really artistic medium of social
intercourse. Without her Japanese
gatherings would lose much of their
vivacity and pleasing abandon. Endowed as the geisha is with more
lhan the ordii;a-y share of personal
attractions, elegant nnd accomplished
in all the arts of society, she is popular among all classes, though not un-
naturally she is a source of nnxiety
to elders and of temptation to youth.
If she falls it is the fault of the men
who should protect her. and her imperfections are not greater or more
glaring than those of the actress ami
other professional entertainers of tlie
Just as in Europe nnd America lhe
actress and the music ha'.l singer or
dancer are fciven a lighter name than
they really deserve, so has tin- geisha
suffered in Jnpan. But her character
depends upon herself and her companions, just as the character of other
women does. True, she is more exposed than otlier women in Jnpan;
���hat is because the mothers of the
nation must he protected from public
gossip und dangerous associations;
but the gefsha is not more exposed
than the women of Kurope who attend
balls and other gayeties of the season.
The men whom the geisha meets nn
not less desirable than many who
dance with the wives and daughter!
of the west during an evening hop.
The geisha does not attain unto lvr
superior nccomplislimsnts naturally
or by accid'iit. She lias to undergo
n life-long course of training. If :i
man intends Hs daughter to become
a geisha, he must send her to lbe
geisha schools as early as 7 years f
age. Then she mu<t remain uritil
womanhood, undergoing daily practice
in singing, dancing and mu/ic. She
learns to become a sort oi oners singer; for she must lie able to tell nn
interesting episode or a thrilling tnle
in song or dance, to the strains of the
samisen, often being her own accompanist. After she enters upon her
career it is very diflieult to qui!, unless by good fortune some wealthy
lover mnrries her, whieh not infrequently happens. The wives of some
quits prominent persons in Japan
were once geisha.

Result of Plot to Cauae Downfall    of
Ottoman Cabinet���Conditions at
I^ondon, Nov. 20.���Both Ottoman
and foreign interests ln Constantinople, while awaiting the publication
there of definite news regarding tht
progress of the war are chiefly concerned In the large number of arrests
of politicians and writers belonging to
the party of union and progress.
According to a special despatch
from the Turkish capital, the Ottoman
government, ' through a local press
agency, has issued a statement that
only. forty arrests have been mado
and that the sole reason for these
was the organization of a demonstration by university students in front of
the government offices on October 7.
Diplomatic circles, however, attribute the arrests to a very different
reason. They believe they were due to
the. nomination hy the Sultan, at the
behest of the Unionists of Mahmound
Shttfket Pasha as inspector-general of
the army. This action was intended to
cause the fall of the Ottoman cabinet.
Servia has yielded to the Austrian
demand that an official from the
Austro-Hungarian ministry of foreign
aaffirs should be allowed to proceed
to Prlsrend to investigate the complaint by the Austrian consul there
that he had been hindered by the Servians in the performance bf his duties.
All the reports emanating from
Turkish sources alleging that the
Turkish troops had gained victories
over the Bulgarians along the line
of fortifications at Catalja are said
to be untrue by the Bulgarian war Office tnrt��v.
The Bulgarian troopa operating be- j
fore tbe line of fortifications defending Constantinople at Catalja havi
received orders to cease firing and
merely to hold the positions they hav-;
won, as negotiations have been begun *
for the conclusion of an arntlstice at
the request of Turkey.
Bennett Burleigh's Story.
London, Nov. 20.'���-Bennett Burleigh,
the noted war   correspondent  of  ths
Dally    Telegraph,    wiring    Monday,.
says: I
"I   witnessed  the  bombardment  of (
the Adrlanople forts to the east an.i I
north of the city. The firing was not
heavy, but accurate.    The   besiegers
are not attempting to break or destroy ,
the city, but are devoting their atten-
tlon solely to the demolition of thi.
Turkish forts. The works ln the east- j
ern and southern section of Adrlanople are easily within reach of tbo
Bulgarian     gun     position.      Prom
Hademkeul to the south, tbs artillery
might leave  Fort  Mlnarits and  the
Mosque of Sellm II., but thus far no |
corner of that or other well-known^
landmarks has been struck. -  (
"The Bulgarians are addressing
themselves to tbe Turkish works on
which many iuterlinea of trenches and
bastions have been constructed. The |
bombproofs are legion. The Turka
have artfully concealed their gun positions and most of their Ore ls delivered from batteries securely hidden'
far behind tbe front.
"They must have worked very bard
and skillfully to construct such a
honeycombing of the terrain around
Adrianople. But irresistibly tbe Bulgarians are advancing���always contracting their steel baiter. The Turks
again attempted a sortie to the eastward. Fighting desperately they
strove to harass the enemy, but this
Bulgarian gunners and Infantry
brought them back Into Adrlanople.
They left rows of dead. The Bulgarians were able to follow them up and
moved their lines of attack still closer
lo the ponderous mass of ramparts,
bastions and trenches.
Greeks snd Bulgars.
London, Nov. 20.���The Salodlkl correspondent of tho Tines says that
the relations between the Greeks and
Bulgarians are far from amicable.
"The fact," he says, "that more ser
ous developments have not occurred
is due to the pacific intervention of
the Bulgarian minister to France, Dr.
3tancoff, who Is now attached to the
staff of Crown Prince Boris. When
lhe Greeks entered the city, three col-
inins of Bulgarians had apprpaohed
within striking distance. The Bulgarians began a battle with the Turks
at Avail and pursued the enemy to
within two miles of 8alonlkl.
"An envoy sent to demand the surrender of the place found the Greeks
'n possession. The Greeks refused to
allow the Bulgarians to enter the
town, with the result that the Crown
Prince and his brother, Prince Cyril,
were compelled to Bleep under a
hridge at Avail.
"The Bulgarians then sent an ultimatum to the Greeks, threatening to
enter the town forcibly. The Greeks
abandoned their position and nfter
waiting 24 hours, fdr the entrance of
King George? the Bulgarians and Sei
vlana were permitted within the walls.
The Greeks express discontent with
the actions of the Bulgarians ln the
town after the occupation, but the
latter claim that they were on ths
spot and could have entered at the
same time.
i "The Turkish commander supports
the Bulgarian assertion, maintaining
that although the surrender papers
were drawn up November 8, they were
not signed until November 9 and that
during Friday night the Turks wero
still in the entrenchments.
"Unpleasant incidents between tho
two services have been frequent.
Their relations have been complicated
by trouble over a locomotive which
waa driven from Serres by a Bulgarian officer, and by placing of sentries by the Greeks to guard Serres
which had been captured by the Bulgarians. The Bulgarians suspect tbat
the Greeks are endeavoring to Interfere \vith the transport of their food
supply, thus giving the Greeka an excuse for their retirement from Salonikl, owing to the difficulties over the
commissariat. The allies also have
quarrelled over the occupancy of the
Mosque of St. Sofia by the Bulgarians.
On two occasions the Greeks have attempted to seize the mosque, on th-3
ground that the Bulgarians wished to
dedicate it to their church. The Bulgarians declared that they only wished to use it as a barracks.
rf Annoyance has been caused by tin
Bulgarians by the appointment cf
Prince Nicholas as a military commandant. The Bulgarians desired
only to recognize the authority of
their own general. The two occupy-
iny armies are about equal tn

London. Nov. 20.���Great enthusiasm

of protest against the Ne Temere Decree by the World's Evangelical Alliance this evening In the vast new
Central Hall at Westminster. Tbe
ball was taxed to its utmost capac-
-Ky; the chair waa occupied by l*rd
Klnnaird, and he was supported by
Dr. Hincks, of Toronto; Dr. Montgomery, Presbyterian moderator. In
Ireland; Rev. Chancellor' Q'Connor,
Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin; Rev.
Webb Pepploe; Sir Robert PerkSi Sir
RobeK ' Andersoh and Revi�� Fuller
Dr. Hhicks, whose address was
awaited with special Interest, moved **.
���resolution which expressed sympathy
with the Protestants of the' Dominion
in their determination to resist, the
papal decree and prevent Its legal eh-,
forcement. Dr. Hincks aald the Canadian Proteatant3 were absolutely unanimous against the decree.
After citation of several Instances
where the decree's operation .caused
hardship under the marriage laws In
Manitoba, Quebec and Ontario, the
speaker went on to aay that Canada
was at the present moment < passing
through her critical period In the
unification ht racSa. creeds and people. The people ot Canada were determined to haVs ultimately one unl-
form marriage law. No government
oould refuse the united requeat and
no political party could survive, six
months which openly endorsed this
infamous decree, yet today Romanism
on the banks of the St. Lawrence was
stronger than on the banks of the
Tiber In Italy. .
Dr. Hincks afterwards showed that
the main reason of the objection of
the German Bmperor to the papal decree waa tbat he had the aame prob
lem for Germany which the Dominion
had, namely, the unification of the
different sects, and. to a certain extent, different *nces. His appeal to
the audience waa received with the
greatest enthusiasm, thekreeolutlon be-
' ing carried unanimously.
Sir Robert Parks, who followed Dr.
Hincks, proposed the following reso-
.  lution, which was adopted:
"That as His Majesty's Government
takes no action to protect the civil
and religious rlghta of HIb Majesty's
subjects who contract legal marriages.
this meeting calls'upon the Imperial
Parliament to take steps to give the
neoessary relief to those who. while
lawfully married, are subjected t<? sufferings In consequence of the terms
of the Ne Temere Decree."

Mania: Who Tried to Blow Up Police
Station Waa Working for
Higher  Wages.
Los Angeles, Nov. 20.���Strapped to
a cot in the Receiving Hospital, Carl
Warr, the German pattern maker, whi*
terrorized the Central police station
yesterday by threatening to destroy
the building with an infernal machine
unless Paul Shoup, president of the
Paciflc Klectric Company waa brought
to him, told a weird tale today.
"I didn't want to hurt anyone about
the police station," declared Warr.
"All 1 was after was the head of the
Pacific Electric. I did not eren know
his name vvas Paul Shoup until after
I was arrested. 1 did not eyea want
to hnrt hipi. i merely w*s going to
Shaw hah my-machine and ttjll him i
waa going to blow him up unlea? he
raised the wages of bis workmen and
otherwise Improved tlieir condition.
"If he had given me^ hia promise to
do so as 1 wanted I wobld bave re-'
leased him. Tf he had failed rae later,
1 would have cornered him again and
either would have forced him to do as
I wanted, or would have killed him.
"I figured that the best way to get
him to promise to do what I wanted
waa to go to the polio* station and
get the officers to co-operate With mo
in order to save tbeir own Ures.
"I had intended to. blow them all
to pieces at any attempt to thwart
me. They were fools to try to capture me. If they had been killed It
would have been no fault ot miae."

Today the centre cf interest to all
Canadians shifts from Southeastern
Kurope to the parliament house upon
the banks of the Ottawa river, for al
last the day has come upon which
the elected representatives of the people meet in conclave.
Never within living memory has so
great an interest been in evidence re
.carding the opening of parliament
the reason being that Premier Borden
will today make known his proposals
���oonccrning Canada's contribution to
the naval defence of the empire.
What form those proposaVs may
take no man may now state with certainty, but we do know that today the
��ycs of thc world, as well as those of
Canada, are watching intently for
some tangible indication of the spirit
with which the greatest of tlie domin
Ions will fall in line with her sister
dominions and dspendencies in this
most vital issue.
There have been rumors of a direct
^emergency contribution and an announcement to this effect will probably be made, bul from the time whicii
has elapsed since the government assumed the reins of power, we should
think that tliere will also be outlined
some permanent naval policy to bo
pursued in future. *
lt should be clearly understood by
the hypercritical champions cf thai
much misused word "autonomy" tha'
an autonomous nation, i.e. one that
has the power or right of self government, can do as it will with its own,
and therefore by giving emergency or
any otlier aid to the motherland.
Canada is merely exercising he."
work, laying the foundation for a general campaign for the Improvement of
farming methods throughout the Dominion,
Probably none of the efforts of agricultural reformei-3 are fraught witli
greater hope than those who preach
the gospel of co-operation. Already
in Canada much has been accomplished by the banding together of farmers to market their products. They
learn how to place their wares more'
profitably on the market, and they acquire better methods of production.
The basic principle of all such organizations is tho grading of the articles for sale, and this tends to bring
the enterprising producer ap to the
level of him who is abreast of the
best methods of the day. This principle has already been of great benefit in the fruit trade and in a lesser
degree in the cheese and butter trade
in this country. It Is the foundation
of the success of Danish butter in
Great Britain, and it is w iely applied
all over Europe.
Land credit banks are widespread
and successful in countries so unlike
as Germany and Italy, and they finance farmers on easy terms and to
an extent that Is quite impossible under our system. It is the success of
this movement that had led to the report of the United States ambassador
at Paris, and it is quite possible that
both ourselves and our American cousins can learn something in this regard from the agriculturists of Europe.���Montreal Star.

The owners of the properties on the
Brunette road not acquired by the G.
N. R. company are in violent apposition to the deviation proposal. They
have petitioned against the proposed
divergence cf the road and will b^
represented ln opposition at the sitting of the railway commission. They
state that their interests in the

that they have been so neglected and
that their properties would be materially depreciated by the mucn

The opposing proprietors explained
that the proposed deviation was
against their material interests and
the G. N. Tt. company had made no
effort to consult their convenience or
offered any compensation  for the al
I leged depreciation cf their holdings
The council replied that their inter

spite that assurance the deputation
lias decided to be specially represented.   They   resent   the action of   the
railway company in arbitrarily laying', the Government, will be adopted,

Australians Lose Flrat Match In British Columbia���Downpour Spoils
Good Open Gems.    ,
The touring Australian rugby foot
bailers who came up from California
with the fine record of ten games
won and only two lost, the defeats be
lng both by the margin of just one
point by teams they had previously
comfortably beaten, sustained f.ieir
third and heaviest defeat yesterdav
at Vancouver. The victory for British
Columbia was gained by two tries to
one and lt waa only ln tbe closing
stages of the match that the Wara-
tahs, so-called from their national
flower, were.able to register their
The Vancouver forwards were great
In footwork and their brilliant dribbling rushes paved the way for the
���defeat of their formidable opponents.
The Australians were evidently out of
their element In the drenching, chill
1ug rain, but gave glimpses of the
form they might be expected to show
on a dry day by fast sprinting and
well conceived passing bouts.
Three times passing nearly broughl
them to the line, but the moments in
two cases were rendered abortive
wben the Vancouver defence was
practically beaten by Inability to further handle the wet ball.
Vnncouver wisely accustomed them-
-selves to the conditions and the forwards kept the ball at thetr feet and
showed great speed, determination
and accuracy at it. They were up
against heavier men, but they stayed
on their game to the finish and deserv-
*d their success. The Vancouver
lacks were sonnd, sure in their catching and good at touch finding.

Sscond Round of Westminster Cup st

The second round of the Westminster cup will be played on Moody pari;
next Saturday afternoon between tho
Rovers and Westham Island. This is
the first visit of the Westham Islanl
���eleven this season, but their pertc.^.i-
.ances on their own ground loads one
to believe that the Rovers will hav*
their work cut out to gain the neces-
nary two points to keep in the race.
So far this season the Rovers have
a. clean sheet both in the senior league
and in the cup tte matches, constituting a recoid unbeaten by any Westminster eleven for many years. With
several flrst league players recently
signed up, Including Tomllnson, of the
Hibernians, a victory la looked for by
Royal City tans who are expected to
turn out ln good force at the park.

Versatility is the secret of the Rex
Vaudeville company which hist night
opened a two nights' engagement at
the opera house. There was a fair
crowd for each performance last evening, the unusual bad weather keeping
away many. They will all be back this
evening, however, together with many
more, for an entirely new bill Ib promised. Tbe company has three'distinct
bills, two of which | will be put on
Nine high class artists make up the
company, and there ia enough variety
to make the production well worth
seeing. Harry Lancaster,' A native of
Edinburgh, is probably the best of the
bunch with his Scotch songs and
humor. The others all made distinct
hits, however, last evening, the sketch
"Confusion," ln which the entire company appears, even to the dog and
baby, getting a good reception.
Harry C. Willis, ln hla ventriloquist
act, made a distinct hit, as did alsi
the Mackay sisters In their singing
and dancing specialty. Dave Canton
eccentric comedian, is an addition to
any bill, his scarecrow dance being
particularly good.
Miss Edith WUma sings several old
songs whicii were popular a generation or more ago, but which are not
by any means forgotten ndw. They
were well received. Miss Marion Yale,
dramatic soprano, has an ^excellent
voice, and gave delightful renditions
of difficult pieces.
Two shows will be given this even
lng, at 7:30 and 9 o'clock, and ac
cording to the manager of the company the bill will be even better than
last night.

Superstitions Exist In All Lands Rs
garding Little One's  Future.
Mothers  snd  their   babies  are  the
same  all  the world  over.      Whether
black,  yellow  or brown,  the  mother
has certain superstitions, and carries
tout certain ceremonies in connection
iwith the newly arrived and treasured
A very largj number of people believe that Mny is an unlucky month
in which to marry. In Cornwall "May
cheats, ill-luck begets," that is, a May
child is i.n unlucky one.
Mother and nurse have to face many
pitfalls of superstitions before the ba-.
by is safely started upon its span of
life. The most dreadful consequences
will follow if the baby is not dressed
correctly nt the beginning.
Never put its little clothes on over
its head for the first time. If you do,
its chances of success in life will he
hopeless. The youngster's first clothes
must lie pulled over its Let in order
to avoid ill-omens.
Everyone knows the superstition
that baby must go upstairs before it
goes down, in order that its career
shall be one of continual and increasing sucee:s. If bHby is born in the
highest room then tlie wise nurse steps
up on a chair before taking the youngster downstairs to be admired.
In many ports of England mothers
will not cut their baby's linger nails
until it is a year old. if they do, the
child will grow up to be a thief. Mothers are aHowed to bite tha nails into
shape however, and so avoid ail evil
Another widespread belief in the
North is that if the first cuttings of
babies' nails are buried under an ash
tree the child will sure to become a
first-class singer!
When the young lord of the house
begins to cut his teeth, then his fond
parents look out for squalls! In Rutlandshire, mothprs watch the cutting
very carefully, for should tlie upper
teeth appear before the lower, it is
considered to be very unlucky.
In Scotland shouid such a thing
happen, it is quite certain that ths
baby will be a bachelor all his life c.r
an old maid! It is an extraordinary
thine that an exactly similar belief as
the Scottish one is held aiming many
of the black tribes f South Africa.
Nor does the baby that cuts his uppeT
teeth first marry, for it is promptly
There are, perhaps, more superstl-.
tions held about christening the baby
than about any other ctremorty connected with it. Should two babies appear to be christened together, then
ths little boy baby has the precedent.
This superstition is current in most
places in Kngland. Siiould the little
lady lie christened first, then her baby
brother will grow up beardless ancl
effeminate, while she will be forced
to study patent moustache removors.
Babies should always cry at tho
font, that is, if yc:u want them to grow
up good men and women. A Shropshire mother wiil say, if the baby lias
been silent during the ceremony: "I
don't believe the parson will drive the
devil out of it, for he never cried!"
In Ireland thev made quite sure hy
pinching the "little darlint," and. bejabers, tliey make it ery for all its
Naming the hope of the family is
always a t/rrible task. Among tiie
Mohammedans tlie various names
about whicli there are any disputes
are written on slips of paper and placed in the Koran. A slip is then drawn
at random and the name drawn is the
one given to the child.
There is an excellent system in
China. Tlie Chinese baby is given a
name when it is a montli old. When
it grows up and gets married its father
gives him a new name. How many
little Majubas, Coronations, and Lady-
smiths would be glad if such a system held over here?
Why Coughing Weakens You.

to 250 units of heat, or the nourishment yielded Ly three vm? or two

First Pri
Success Follows a
' Tbe crowd pushed through tbe entrance gates of tbe big county fair In
a continuous stream. Outside tbe
great fenced In area was a maze of
vehicles of every description, from the
humblest bos wagon to tbe highly varnished and luxuriously equipped motorcar.
Inside tbe grounds, there was as
great a dissimilitude among tbe people
wandering from one exhibit to another, streaming In and out ot ths sideshows or gathered lo tbs retresbtneut
Phoebe Sweet bad arrived that morning In ber fathers comfortable two
seated carriage, all the available space
about ber piled wilh daintily wrapped
boxes, for I'hoebe always exhibited at
tbe Corinth county fair, and ber bread
and cake and canned fruit alwuys carried away tbe flrst prizes.
Today bad been an exception, however, tor one by one the coveted
prizes bnd been awarded to another exhibitor, wbo ln yeara past bad been
among tbe vanquished, and. although
I'hoebe bad smiled bravely aa she saw
ber products passed by. sbe was bitterly disappointed at tbe outcome.
Her father, arriving nt tbe building
too Inte, found ber at the door, flushed
(nd rather dejected. "Snme old story,
I'hoebe, bird?" he asked affectionately.
Sbe shook ber bead dolefully. "Wbat
ts the* matter wllb me. father? 1
didn't take a prize���not one!"
"Whyeece!" exploded Mr. Sweet,
aghast. "What lu thunder are tbose
fellows thinking shout anyway? Wbat
do tbey know about bread or cake or
pies, eh?   Let me have a look."
He was about to pass ber when
Phoebe caught his shoulder and shook
bim laughingly.
"It's no use. father, dear. Mrs. Sco-
fllle's products renlly nr* superior td
mine. Let us go buck and look at
tbem. aod please don't let any one
know we are very much disappointed."
"I'll look as glnd ns I can thnt Mrs.
Whsts her name hns enrrted off all the
honors." smiled Mr. Sweet as be led
bis daughter down the building to tbe
exhibit of domestic productlomi.
A few people were gathered about S
table on wblcb were set forth several
loaves of beautifully baked bread,
lorne toothsome froni ed enkes and a
WW of varl tinted canned fruits. A
tall, sunburned young mnn wns speaking to n short, plump, motherly look-
lim woman.
"Yoifve cnrrlwl off honors for the
family. Aunt Snbrlna." be wns saying
| "(iiHid land, lleorge'. I'm almost
ashamed to have taken It. Thnt pretty girl almost cried when tbey pnssed
over her thine* with Just 'honorable
mention.' There's so few girls who
run cook nownilnvs that they ought to
be encouraged Instead of nn old woman like me stepping In. 1 declare, tbere

| Phoebe had heard the frankly spoken words noil hnd flushed warmly.
Mr Sweet smiled good nnturedly. and
tbe woman, who wns Mrs. Scoville.
atep|ied forwsrd wltb.s pleasant, winning smile.
"Ton heard what I ssld," sbe remsrk-
ed. holding out n plump hand to Phoebe. "And I meant It too. Tour things
look beautiful, arid I'm sure tbey taste
ss good ss tbey look*        -
"Thank you, Mrs. Scoville. yon are
too kind." ssld I'hoebe gratefully.
"Tbls -Is my fslher; dad. IJ��I* Is \lrs-
Scoville. who carried off the prises Ibis
year.   We roust congratulate ber."
Mrs. Scoville warmly Insisted thst
Phoebe's dainties were ss good ss her
own If not much better, snd much time
wss spent In comparing the two exhibits.
"I nsed to see you carrylpg off tbs

"And that does not seem unlikely."
smiled Mrs. Scoville over Phoebe's em

"I dislike every eligible young mnn."
laughed Mr  Sweet gooif nuturedly.
In tbe grand atand i'hoebe felt a glow
of Interest iu Mrs. Scovllle's tiaiiUtfuiiie
npphew, tieorge Itelden, who appeared
In ii suinll sulky driving a dainty bluck
maru. lie scanned the faces In the
grnnd stand and waved bia cap toward
hls aunt.
"Ah, there conies Snm. driving Dewey!" exclaimed Mr. sweet as a straw
whiskered innn came Into view on the
course. The borse Dewey, which hud
won many a bent for Its owner, was a
long, ruwfioned specimen of equine
tiesb, but wllb an enormous power ot
reserve strength tbat broughl Its borne-
ly nose under tbe line every time.
Rum saluted bis employer, and Mr.
Sweet waved bis bat. aud I'hoebe fluttered a handkerchief. But ber father
noticed a singular lack of eulbuslusm
In her manner. Her eyes were nol on
ber father's horse, but were following
tbe course taken by Oeorge Beldeu's
black mare.
"If you go back on Dewey, daughter,
I shull feel thut you buve found nnoth
er sweetheart than your old dud," he
said lu a low tone, und Phoebe's quick
caress und blUbhlng protest seemed tu
sniisfy hint.
Presently they were away, and Ihe
crowd on the grand stand beld Its
breath wblle there sounded the sharp
trot-trot-(rot uround the course.
Prom the very beginning Dewey took
the lead, and the other racers stretched
out obliquely on his left. Tbe bluck
mare Princess held ber white nose close
to tbe left wheel ot Sam's sulky, and
Phoebe discovered herself harboring
traitorous thoughts.
Sbe wanted Dewey to win. and sbe
wanted Oeorge Belden to win. Sbe
didn't even know hlm to speak to. and
yet she didn't want to see ihe look of
disappointment come Into bis eyes.
Yet she blushed at ber own forwardness tn harboring sucb thoughts.
As for ber father. Mr. Sweet had
taken tbe purse ut lbe trotting course
for mnny years, aud wuuld he not be
disappointed if Dewey should fail blm
tbls lust year that be would enter htm?
So Phoebe turned ber blue eyes away
from tbe black mare und fastened tbem
loyally on Dewey's lank form and exerted all her mental powers to desire
tbst bis homely old nose should once
more come under lbe wire In lead of
bis fellows.
"Princess Is gnlnlng-gainlng!" cried
Mrs. Scoville Jubilantly, nud tben s
quick frown (-reused ber forehead.
Dear uie. Mr. Sweet. 1 do wish
Ororge's mnre was uoi running against
your Dewey! It makes It bard to be
'Much obliged. Mrs. Scoville. I shan't
tnke It hnrd If tbe yopngster wins ont
We old folks must retire some day.
It's got dowu to a race between Princess and Dewey ufter all."
"I know (leorge's heurt will be broken." lamented Mrs. Scoville as Dewey
flew under ihe wire to a loud demonstration from the crowd. "He'd set
1:1s benrl on Prim-ess winning tbls race,
and he wns so conlldeut that he planned to lake me on a trip to tbe mountains with the purse."
"I'm sorry, niu'sm." and Mr. Sweet's
eyes twlukled with pleasure In spite of
himself. "But I'll promise to put
Dewey Out to grass after ibis and give
the jounger ones a chance."
"Xo. nol Thnt wouldn't bo wbat
tieorge cslls ���sportsmanlike'" protested Mrs. Scoville os Ihey emerged from
the stand and wultvd near tbe gate for
