Toronto, Jan. 15.���Right on top of
th�� gigantic land deal of John F. Hansen a day or two ago with tbe C. N.
B. came the announcement today of
another land purchaae ln Port Mann
and Montreal, Involving an expenditure of $2,500,000. William McBaln
of Regina, is the man woo has got
control ot this enormous amount of
real estate.
An Investment of such magnitude
would seem almost too risky for- the
ordinary man to think of, but Mr. McBaln has apent a year ln Montreal
nnd on tbe Paciflc coast looking over
these properties trom every possible
standpoint. He ls enthusiastic over
his purchase and stated today that he
had made one of tbe beat investments
in his career.
"1 have Just purchased," .said he
"12,500,000 worth of town lota at Port
Mann, nn the Fraaer River tn .British
Columbia, and in the City ef Montreal
irom the Canadian Northern Land
Company, through Davidson A McRae,
general agenta. I have been purchasing landa from this firm for ihe last
lour or five years, my purchases probably aggregating ln the neighborhood
of $5,uo0,000, and In coming to Toronto from time to time to close up these
land sales my attention was called to
Xhe ts.Lt that pioperty Ib selling at
very low prices ln the eastern cities."

A Reversion   to   Olden Times���Why
Did King Do It T
1 King.George has numerous precedents for his pollcy of changing the
capital of India trom Calcutta to
: Delhi, as Ex-Attache points out in an
! article In the Pittsburg Dispatch. In
| India itself there 7b a most notable
Instance of this, provided two centuries ago by Jey Singh II., who
abandoned Amblr for Jeypore. Ambir
still remains, but its marble palaces
| are inhabited by snakes and
i monkeys and the tropical verdure haa
invaded the streets. Some of the
temples and other public buildings
J must have cost great fortunes to rear,
but the ruler showed his people what
1 a truly great man he was by care-
��� lessly disregarding the loss of wealth
{that hla whim entailed; and even if
! similar disaster should overwhelm
i Calcutta lt is likely that the majority
\ of his majesty's Indian subjects would
j be only more deeply impressed.   As a
matter of fact the change is not likely
j to be nearly so serious a matter for
j Calcutta, which wlll always be lmport-
jant as a port of entry, though lt wlll
no doubt resent the transfer of   Its
official prestige to Delhi.
Other Capitals Changed.
In our own time there have been
similar changes. In 1867, tor Instance, the Mikado transferred the
capital of Japan from Kioto to Tokyo.
The capital of Italy haa been twice
changed, once from Turin to Florence,
and again ln 1870 to Rome. The moat
recent example is that furnished by
Australia, which Ib building a new
capital at Dalgetty, and abandoning
both Melbourne and Sydney. It is said
that Alphonse XIII. Is now considering
1 a plan to remove the capital of Spain
'from Madrid to Barcelona. Madrid is
| probably the most unhealthy of the
; large cities in Europe, while the climate of Barcelona Is salubrious. Barcelona, however, has won an International reputation as the strcnghold
of Spanish liberalism, and we may
be sure tbat this will not enhance It;
value ln the eyes of the King of Spain.
He has a precedent, however, in the
transfer of the capital from Toledo.
Peter the Great moved the capital
of bis empire from Moscow to St.
Petersburg in order, as he said', that
he might have "a window to look out
upon Europe."
Unhealthy Calcutta.
Slam's capital has been changed
from Ayuthia to Bangkok, and Wasn-
ington is the third capital of the
United StateB, both Philadelphia and
Annapolis having previously enjoyed
the honor. Canada knows what it ls
to have had alternating capitals, and
| China may yet move her seat of gov-
| ernment from Peking to Nanking. As
far as Calcutta is concerned, it is a
mere mushroom, or in view of lta
deadly climate it might be more cor-
I reet to say a mere toadstool, for it
has been called Golgotha with aome
reason. It is built on a swamp, and
| is bo unhealthy that for several
monthB each year, the government is
practically removed to Simla. What
sort of reputation Simla has, need not
be explained to anyone who is
familiar with Kipling. The city In the
hills has been described as at once
the blight and the cure of Anglo-Saxon
officialdom. Its atmosphere Is as
deadly from a moral point of view as
it Is bracing to the jade'J nerves, and
���scandal, indolence and intrigue are
as pervasive as the breezes from the
! The World's Oldest City.
I At Delhi, there wfll be no need for
a retreat on the part of the officials,
for lf the climate Is not always balmy
it is about the best to be had ln India. A thousand miles from Calcutta,
it Is high above the sea level, and a,
man might have a worse fate than
lifelong residence there. The climatic
advantage is only one of the many
that Delhi can Justly claim. The fact
that lt is the oldest city in the world
and the ancient capital of the Punjab
has been made familiar to most of ub
in the course of the discussion of th*
Durbar. It dates back to at leaBt
3000 years before the Christian era,
and there is point ln the old Baying
t that under one name or another Delhi
has always been in elxstence since the
I world began. For the first British
| ruler of India ever crowned In the
i empire   to proclaim    Delhi   for   his
��� capital was a stroke of diplomacy well
'calculated    to   strike    the   Oriental
imagination. All the auguries are now
fulfilled. The rossesslon of the Koh-
i-noor marks King George as the
rightful ruler to many of his Indian
subjects, while the ownership of the
jeweled Uma has a like significance
to others, and to them all the change
of the capital to Delhi makes a strong
It Ib a long time since such an Important state secret was better kept,
for wben the announcement was made
it plainly took Lord Lansdowne and
Ix>rd Curzon by surprise, though tho
latter Is supposed to have tlie king's
ear regarding India. The secretary enabled the agents of the government to
buy all the land required at Delhi at
prices much lower than would have
prevailed had any inkling of the
change leaked out. Now that the coup
has been made many writers are wondering why It never occurred to the
astute Lord Beaconsfleld, who foresaw the wisdom of having Queen Victoria proclaimed as Empress of India. It Is worth noting that Lord
Kitchener is credited in some quar
ters with having originated the Bug

Learned    and    Intellectually    Nimble
Sage Hits "Toronto the Good."
Toronto, Jan.  15.���Elbert  Hubbard,
the famous long-distance  talker and
printer of rulnouBly expensive books,
kept a gathering of several  hundred
members of the Toronto trade spell-
I bound   and convulsed,   by   turns,  for
Bex 4tt the space of more than an hour last
night, at a meeting of the Graphic
Arts Board of Trade, which was held
in McConkey's. Pretty nearly the
whole range of human activity and
experience was covered by the East
Aurora sage ln the course of his remarks, but "Big Business," und the
j constitution thereof, was the topical
.thread   underlying   hls   wanderings.
��� and though he appeared to skin from
(one inconsequent subject to another,
it was apparent from the nice way
ln which each fitted into the next that
his discourse was anything but Impromptu or extemporaneous.
! To convey an idea of Mr. Hubbard'.)
address would be Impossible, short of
a verbatim transcription, and only a
few of his more striking witticisms
can be selected as examples of the
whole entertainment. "A doctor," he
said at one time, "takes from $5 to
$500 for performing a very light service for you; a lawyer takes all you v^>
got, and a preacher takes what he
'can get. The last Uvea on tips, takln,;
up a silver collection when he needs
the money." Again: "1 have written
four editorials a week for Hearst for
the last rive yearB. He pays me twice
as much when he doesn't use mv
name on them, as then he can make
people think he wrote them. When
people ask me why I write for these
rotten papers, I say they are not half
so rotten as they would be If I didn't
, write for them.' ' Of a certain railway
magnate, the speaker said: "He
travels around the road, blowing up
everybody in each place. He is the
fiort that swears    up    the    elevator
��� damning five floors at a time."
I    Fra Elbertus had a great deal    to
aay about reciprocity, the Bum of his
statements being to this effect: "Half
our time, if we lived Ideally, should
j be spent ln farming, and a nation can
| only be prosperous lf half its popula-
I tion are farmers. We have only one-
third farmers now in the United
States, while you still have one-half
Kew York City Is always within 48
hours of starvation, and that is why
we want reciprocity ��� something
you've got and we want. But I'm glad
you did turn ub down; it was coming
to ub. You did not refute the arguments of the great and good Sir Wil-
frld Laurier (I always advertise him
because he favors reciprocity, and so
do I), but your votes were cast on
sentiment, which Is something higher
than making money. Even the Scotch
voted against it! You've given us our
answer���us, the men from Missouri,
who  had    to    be  shown.    Vou  have
shouted back, '111 show you,' you'va
shown us you can do without us, and
now tne States have more lespect for
Canada than ever before. You want
reciprocity only when it comes wltn
a smile���and it will come with a
smile, for we need your No. 1 hard."
Between times Mr. Hubbard preached a sound philosophical sermon from
his text of "Business," giving farming
ns the most Important business ln the
world, with i all way transportation
and printing as second and third
Each point was backed up with illuminating argument and reference, and
by the time he was through every man
in the audience felt the value of hla
optimistic gospel lying behind the
speaker's distracting epigrams an:t
queer mannerisms of speech and gesture. "To me a smokestack is Just as
sacred as a steeple, and a deal moro
necessary," he said in one place, and
the remark came as a keynote to tlie
whole discourse.

To this loss of power no one need

The Ulster Loyalists.
Speaking of tho loyal minority, Mr.
Law said that it constituted, at the
\er.f lowest estimate, one-fouith of
the people of lie and. This minority
pays more than half the taxes, does
more than half the trade of the
country, and, fiom the point of view
erf character and everything ttut
makes for strength, it represents at
least the half of Ireland. To the
majority tn Ireland Home Rule would
come as a doubtful blessing; to the
lo>al minority lt would, come as an
intolerable curse. It was true that

What Ulster Wants.
Mr. Law spoke with eloquence of
the men of Ulster. "They have sympathized 'with us tn good times and
bad, and tn all troubles. In their
case there were no shouts of Jubilation when tbe news came that our
armies were defeated and that our
poldiers were lying dead in the defence of the country. They sympathized in our eorrowr, they shared
In our triumphs'. They have turned
what was itself one of the most barren parts of Ireland Into one of the
most prosperous spots in the whole
of the United Kingdom. They ask
now that they should be given the
same privileges, and nothing more,
that are enjoyed by every man and
woman in Great Britain. They. ask
only that they should enjoy these,
and should be able to hand down to
their children, the heritage whicli
they have received, the privilege of
British citizenship and the protection
ot British law."

useless. The house would not listen,

Japanese   Method  of   Resuscitation   In
Case* of Drowning.
An English scientist. Professor A.
Abrauw. has recently been making n
special study of the seinl-mlrurulous
restoration to life practiced by the Japanese, and. While he dues not fully explain why the men come back to life
after being to all Intents dead, he docs
tell how it Is done, und this In Itself
is Interesting. In jujutsu If a nutu Is
knocked out, beaten senseless, killed or
otherwise mauled and lf u man hus

face and extends tils arms side wine.
Then lie strikes the piitlenl ou the seventh cervical vertebra with his wrist

Thackeray's Tribute.
Posterity has endorsed the generous criticism of Thackeray in tbe
Kraser's Magazine: "Who can listen
to objections regarding such a book
as this ?" he wrote. . "lt seems to me
a national beneflt, and to every man
or woman who reads it a personal
kindness. The last two people I
heard speak of It were women:
neither knew the other, or the author, and both said, by way of criticism, 'Gol bless him!'
Many men were known to sit down,
after perusing tt, and write oft let
ters to their friends, not about business, but out of the fulness of heait,
and to wish old acquaintances a
happy Christmas. Had the book appeared a fortnight earlier, all the
prize cattle would have been gobbled
up in pure love and friendship, Ep-
ping denuded of sausages, and not a
turkey left ln Norfolk. His Hoyal
Highness' fat stock would have fetched unheard-of prices, and Alderman
Bannister would have been tired of
slaying. As for Tiny Tim, there ls a
certain passage In the hook regarding
that young gentleman about which
| a man should hardly venture to
| speak ln print or In public, any more
than he would of any other affections
of hls private heart. There is not a
leader in England but that little
creature will be a bond of union be
tween the author and him ;and he
will say of Charles Dickens, as tne
I women said just now. 'God bless
him 1' What a feeling is this for a
writer to be able to inspire, and what
a re war dto reap !"

Many British holiday resort= havs
gone extensively into the entertainment business for the purpose of attracting visitors. Among them is Margate, which twenty years ago had no
municipal enterprises in the shape o!
concerts, shelters, band stands nr
pavilions or bathing facilities. All
these were later provided and the total revenue for last season from all
sources totalled up to $75,000. as
against $55,000 in 1910. Pome of the
revenues are remarkable. The new

drew on the average $1,500 a week,
while two concert parties attracted
$2,500 a week and were paid by a percentage on the profits. The municipal orchestra produced $1,750 a week
on the average at its open-air concerts. An older pavilion, the Wectoh-
ville, has already been paid for oni
of the profits. Margate's record has
been surpassed in extent and results
in other watering places in England,
but it is an excellent example of thp
way in which a municipality can both
boost itself and improve its revenues.

Electricity and Plants.
The simplest of all methods of applying tlie supposed stimulus of electric-
Ity to- growing plants appears to be j
that of M. Busty of Antwerp. Itelgluui   ;
lie sets upright in the ground metallic
rods furnished with unoxtdtsable points
and  penetrating to  the depth  ef the I
roots of the plants to be treated,  These ;
miniature lightning rods are supitoscd
to  collect  atmospheric   electricity  and
conduct it Into the soil.    The area of '
action. M. Pasty calculates, ls a circle
of radius equal  to  tho height of the
rod.    As many rods as needed may be
employed at proper distances upart. As
applied  in  u  garden  at   Antwerp  for
several yearn past this method ls credited  with   having  Increased the yield
of   lettuce,   strawberries   and   similar
garden products from twofold to fourfold.

In these days of 32.01X1 ton Dreadnoughts it is interesting to uote how
much cun be done ou a limited displacement, as shown in tho case of the
three small ships of this type whicb
are being built for Spain, says the Scientific American. Though these vessels nro of but 14.700 tons displacement, which ls les�� than that of the
Connecticut, they wlll mount eight
twelve-Inch 50 caliber guns of the

Thirty  Miles  of Sods.
Forty million tons of the best washing material, supplied and manufactured by nature, are waiting to be
carried from Central Africa to the
Europ��an markets, and an extension
of the Uganda Railway is to be built
from Uiu to Lake Mr.gadi in order to
effect this. Lake Magadi is not really
a lake, but an area of thirty square
miles of soda deposit situated in the
heart of Africa.
Two expeditions have gon�� rut into
this soda lake region, which though
hot in the middle of the day, is declared to be quite healthy. It is in the
midst of one of the finest big game
shooting areas in the Rritish South
African Protectorate. In ordinary
times the lake has a perfectly level,
hard, and dry surface, like that of ��
gigantic mass of Fen ice, if a thirty-
square-mile area can be imagined.
It appears that in the past it hns
been left to the Indians to remove
soda from the lake. They cut out
blocks, and what is called "Mother
Liquid" spurts up and re-forma into
solid soda, which they cut away next
season. This It evidence that the soda
in the lake is being continually augmented.
In addition to ths many surface-
springs discharging considerablf
quantities of soda into the lake, there
are indications ol large springs in the
lake itself. On the removal of the
soda already crystallized the "Mother
Liquid," which takes its place at
once, starts to '"-form the crust.
It looks as if washerwomen can
sleep comfortably in their heds for
some years to come. So long as washing is provided for them, their soda
shall  be sure.

Should   First   Cousins   Marry?
The seriousness of the risk run by
first cousins who marry ii emphasized by Miss Ethel Klderton, a co-worker with Prof. Karl PearRon at the
Galton Laboratory for National Eugenics, London University. Marriages
between near kin. such as uncle and
niece, aunt and nephew, or grandparent and grandchild, nre forbidden
mainly on the principle of resemblance. Miss Elderton therefore determined to see whether cousins are as
much alike as any of these pairs of
relatives. She studied the cases of
no fewer than C.000 pairs of cousins,
with s view to endeavoring to measure the derree of resemblance in
health, intelligence, success, temper,
and temperament.
The conclusion she csme to waa this
���that the general resemblance between cousina is about half that hetween brother and sister, and practi- .
cally the same as that shown by sta- i
tistirs of uncles and nieces and of '
aunts snd nephews.
"If the Undes'.rabiiity of marriage
withim certain degrees is foanded on
the closeness of resemblance," say?
Miss Elderton, "the law which forbids the marriage of uncle and aunt
with niece and nephew should aleo
restrict the marriage of first cousins."
Superstitions  Up-to-Date.
All of us are superstitious, more
or less, but it is doubtful if there are
many who would regard a piece of a
suicide's rope as a luck-bringer. Yet
it was only the other day, at an inquest, that a man asked to be allowed
to keep a portion of the rope with
which a fellow-worker had hanged
himself, "tor good luck." It reminds
one of the curious belief which exists
among many people that to wear any
article of clothiny, or to carry a piece
nf au article ot wearing apparel,
which belonged to a dead relative is
sure to bring good luck.
In the west of England the superstition that green clothes bring trouble is still believed in, and one often
hears the saying quoted, "Wear green,
wear black."
And how many people th?re are who
still consider that to walk under a
ladder brings bad luck; that seven
years' misfortune will follow the
breaking of a mirror; and that disaster is sure to follow the spilling of
talt, unless three pinches are immediately cast over the left shoulder.
In the east end of London particularly it is a popular belief that
misfortune is bound to befall a baby
who gaxes into a mirror before it is
twelve months old, while it is very
lew people, however mueh they may
laugh at superstitions beliefs, who will
sit down at a table wher* there are
thirteen guests.

An African Concert.
Mme. Ads Cros#ley. the well-known
contralto dinger, has just returned to
England from a visit to South Africa,
una has been narrating some of her
experiences, which included, among
others, the shooting of crocodiles. Referring to her glimpses of native life,
she remarks that among < the Rhode-
sian mines "we wefe treated to a.
thrilling war-dance and a concert with
a native orchestra of forty musicians.
Their instruments were chiefly drums
and a strtnge contrivance much like
a xylophone, only a great deal larger.
Weird but real harmonies were somehow beaten out of these crude instruments, and at times the effects were
quite dramatic. Their favorite tune
was 'Tarara-boom-de-ay.' which they
played eternally, but so differently
that it never grew monfttonous."
Cansries Cross Ocesn.
A remarkable scene was witnessed
at the Hslifax (Eng.) railway station
recently, when 2.000 canaries of various breeds, comprising Yorkshire.
Norw.frh. Border, Fancy, Lizard and
Lancashire-were despatched to America.
j    At Liverpool the canaries were shipped oil the White Slar liner Baltic,
which sailed on a Thursdoy.   Special
'arrangements were made to feed the
i many mouths on the ocean trip.   All
, the birds were bred in the west tiding
sf Yorkshire, and the exportation it
by tar the biggest ou record irom the
To the Manner Born.
Max Muller, the famous Sanskrit
scholar, was fond ol recalling that
he had once eeen Queen Victoria and
the Empress Eugenie enter a Paris
theatre together. The audience cheered itself hoarse, but what interested
Prof. Muller was the contrast in the
conduct of the two royalties.
Both bowed in answer to the plaudits, and then sat down, but whereas
Eugenie glanced behind her, much
as vou or I would do, to make sure
of the chair being there to receive her.
Victoria kept her eyes to th i front snd
took the chair for granted.
That wes the difference between
being born into the purple and marrying into it.

. Dickens st the. Sea Shore.
For fourteen years Dickens made
Bror.dstairs his principsl summer
home in England. London alone
held a superior place in his affections. He ielt his powers at their
amplest wben he was at the little
ehannel coast town. Dickens has given the best picture of himself at his
summer routine at Broadftairs: "In s
bay window in a one pair tits from 9
i'clock tn 1 a gentleman with rather
long hair and no neckcloth, who
writes and grins as if he thought he
jvere very funny indeed. At I he
disappears, presently emerges from s
bathing macbihe and may he seen, a
kind of sslmon colored porpoise,
splashing ubout in the ocesn.

A quaint paragraph appeared in ths
will oi Mrs. Julie Hall of Brighton.
England. At tbe reading of the will

hsd bequeathed $500 to her coachman,
provided he is in her service at her
death and "it I do not die through
or from the effects of a carriags accident when he is the driver."
