Bulgarians Take More Turkish Positions on Tchatalja Lines
���Servians Successfully Storm Important Albanian Town
*.���150,000 Casualties in Less than Month���Turkey Playing
for Time���Austrian View of Albanian Situation.
London, Nov. 10.���The Bulgarian at
tack on the Tchatalja lines goes on
relentlessly. According to a correspondent at the front, further Turkish
positions have been captured but their
location has not been Indicated, in accordance with the Bulgarian plan never to give Information to tbe enemy.
There Is another unconfirmed report that Monastlr has been captured.
This and the capture by the Servians
of Dlbra, an important town ln Albania, after heavy flghting, constitute ali
the military news of importance since
Plight of Europe.
Paris, Nov. 10.���"Dangerous, but
not hopeless," is the way the political
plight in which Europe finds herself
is summed up in official circles In
The diplomatic controversy between
Austria and Servia over the question
of Servia's access to the Adriatic has
the centre of the stage, overshadowng
all else, even the war Itself.
Efforts at mediation have been proposed because of this, as the complication retards the attempts to briny
the powers nto accord. A hopeful
feature in the situation lies in the
knowledge tbat powerful influence is
at wcrk on both sides to induce the
disputants to find a compromise for
the vexatious question.
Turkish Deadlock.
Should this fall, Europe would fin)
herself threatened by a deadlock between   the   Triple   Alliance   and the
Triple Entente. |
Discussing the complexities of the
situation a prominent diplomat said:
"1 think we should not be too pesst-1
mtstic. It Is almost certain tbat wo
shalt pass through difficult and dangerous chapters before the gloom Is
dissipated, but I think that we can
reasonably expect that Austria and
Servla will eventually settle their differences In an amicable way."
Powers Nearly Agreed.
Paris, Nov. 10.���Great Britain,
Franco and Russia, constituting the
triple entente, and Germany, Austria
and Italy, the triple alliance, are believed to be at the point of reaching
an agreement ta nrevent the Bulgarian army froc occupying Constantinople.
Tbe six governments find themselves tn accord on that principle ana
active exchanges are in progress as to
the means to be taken to bring about
this result.
One  suggestion  is  for a  collectiv
contributing to the peace of the Balkans, would be a source of perpetual
trouble and disorder among the Albanian people themselves, who never
have been independent, have no national feeling and are of various religions and nationalities, with no
common language.
These disorders, it is argued, will
inevitably spread to the surrounding
states and instead of a permanent settlement, Europe woulJ be left with a

outstanding feature of the year had
been the creation of t2h royal flying
corps. Numbers of the regular array
were fully maintained and Its efficiency was probably greater than at any
time In its history.
Besides the regular army and th?
national reserves, there remained that
great citizen army, the second line ln
this country and the Dominions oversea and of this he would say that tbey<
were drawing in numbers greater than'
ever before. He did not mean to say
that all was perfect���far from it.
Much remained to be done and great
efforts must be made if the forces of
the crown were to continue adequate
to the Immense responsibility resting
upon this country.
He also looked forward to the day
when every man would follow up that
same dictate of civic patriotism for
which this country was renowned by
"1 will extend my civic patriotism
to the duty of defending my country

London, Nov. 10.���Prime Minister.
Rt. Hon. H. H. Asquith, tonight made
a statement on the situation in the
Near Bast at the Lord Mayor's inaugural banquet at the Guildhall. In this
statement he said:
"Upon one thing. I believe the general opinion of Europe to be unanimous, tbat the victors are not to be
robbed of the fruits which cost thera
so dearly."
The Prime minister referred to the
unsuccessful efforts of the powers tc
prevent the conflict and to,the great
changes the war had made In the map
of Europe. He said the fall of Constantinople might occur at any moment, and added:
"In these anxious times It ls satisfactory to be able to announce that
the relations ot* England with tbe other powers, without a single exception,
were never more friendly and cordial."
I "The map of Europe will have to be
recast," the premier said, "and nowhere was there a disposition to belittle the magnitude of the struggle or
dispute the decisiveness of the result.
"Even the campaign of Austerlitz
did not produce such sudden and
startling changes as the Balkan nations have wrought in the map of the
Near East. It may be that our preconceptions and politics will have to
be reconstructed, or even go by the
board altogether."
"England," he said, "has no direct
Interest in the exact form which the
political and territorial redistributions may take. The special relations
of the other powers, geographical,
economic, ethnical and historical, with
the scene of the conflict are such that
they cannct be expected not to claim a
voice when the time comes for a per
manent settlement."
The Prime Minister refrained from
indicating the points that must emerge for solution.
"For the moment and as long as the
state of belligerency continues," he declared, "His Majesty's Government
deprecates the raising and pressing of
isolated'questions, which, if handled
separately    and    at once   may seem

"The New Awakening In Civic Affairs" was the theme of Rev. J. 3.
Henderson, wbo at SL Andrew".*
Church last evening dealt with th��
movement known as the Citizens
League, recently organized in the eity.
Taking hls text from St. Luke, 19.
14: "And when be was come near, he
beheld the city, and w^t over IL" Mr.
Henderson flrst depicted the scene at
Jerusalem when Christ, returned from
His tour of Israel, found moral conditions mucb against his taste and drove-
out the commercialism which existed
ln the temple.
"We are sometimes told of the
'good old days,'" he said, "bnt w<*

in many vital particulars, the living:
throbbing present Is better.
Citizens League.
"It was with the object of becoming
more intelligently interested in civis
affairs that a citizens league was
formed in this city' a tew evenings-
ago, the birth of which has been heralded to the four corners ot the earth.
"We are not organized to publish to
the world the city's shame. We axe-
not seeking fame by placing emphasis on certain deplorable conditions in
the city. We are not responsble for
the scare headlr.es in the paper���for
the echoes which get beyond tha
walls of our civic home. This Is a.
civic home affair, lt is a serious,
united, determined effort at civic
house-cleaning. New York, Minneapolis, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver, am
all at it.
"We are not going to advertise oar
city's shame, but we are going to flnd
out what is going on. We are goin��
to tell the authorities, what'is go?ng

that such action Is necessary to protect the subjects ot the respective nations and to maintain order.
Bulgaria's Attitude.
The Bulgarian government appears
to bave indicated that It had no Intention qt trying to hold Constantinople, and that It would occupy the
Turkish capital only until peace had
been arranged.   .
This, tt is stated, is not satisfactory
to the powers. It is pointed out that
such occupation might continue indefinitely ahd cert'anly during the
long discussion preceding a peace settlement, rendering a permanent agree-j
ment more difficult by the European
conference,   t ''. -'
It Ib considered essential for fhe
great international interests that the
Bosphorus, Constantinople, tbe Dardanelles ahd a narrow zone ln European Turkey be retained by the Turks.
Price of Buttle.
Some Idea of tno bloody nature of
this war may be formed from the fact
that it jb now estimated tliat 150,000
men have been put out of action on
both sides since the opening of hostilities. The Turkish government clearly has little hope of holding the Tchatalja lines. The dispatch of 100 Morass to the front with the avowed Intention of stirring up religious fanaticism in the army Is Interpreted as
the counsel of despair.
There ls no confirmation of the report that the Turkish authorities hare
opened direct negotiations with the allies. Turkey's Immediate object appears to be to gain time, hoping for
something .from the rivalries of the
European powers. Sbe also is making
urgent diplomatic efforts tb prevent
the Bulgarian troops from entering
Constantinople. In this connection
there Is an Idea in Sofia that some Important diplomatic action is afoot to
this end.

anxious only to preserve Albania's national and political freedom and. In
this object has the support of Oermany and Italy. But, the paper adds,
the mere assurance by Servla that she
would nojt fortify her harbor on tho

her passage through Albania can not
be conceded.
According to an Inspired statement,
the view of tbe Balkan allies Is that

Lord Carrington used to be a great
practical joker, but he was onoe the.
victim of his own reputation. He was
at the time stopping at a hotel in Cape
Town. In the same hotel were a young
couple, and the husband having it
bad cold, the wife left her room to
i>btain for him the solace of a mustard   poultice.    She   left him  asleep!

is follows:
"We do, by the?e presents, for us,

she fled from tho room and, rushing
down tlie passage, discovered her ow,i

The units   iu Vancouver   are now
starting on their training season once
more.   Tbe Duke ot Connaught's Own
and the medical    meu have    already
commenced aud  the Highlanders ex-
pect to receive orders   to parade as
soon as Colonel Leckle arrlvea from
the East.   It alwaya seems to me that
something   ln   the  nature of a daylight   saving   bill   might   advantageously be adopted with regard to the
drill period of the   mllltla.      lf  tbe
rough weather and cold winter evenings were passed by and work here
commenced about March and continued till  the    end   of   September,  it
would give officers    commanding    a
much better chance to tran their units
ln a practical    manner   out-of-doors.
March   and April could be spent   in
drill and lectures   in tho   armouries.
May, June and July ln company training, August ln battalion training, and
In September the   terminating   manoeuvres could be held. There would always be enough    keen ones to keep
i classes   of   signalling, machine gun,
fleld cooking,   etc., going  during the
winter months,  but the majority  of
the time oould be devoted to recreation to keep the men together until
the reopening of tho training.   I havo
always lit'iyd It advanced against summer work tbat the men havo so many
other   things to    do ln    the warm
weather, but I rather favor the theory
that winter evenings are, as a rule,
more fully occupied, and at any rate,
it could do no harm" for one or two
units to be Instructed to give the plan
a trial.
No one could -reasonably expect men
to train out-of-doors In the sort of
weather we have been experiencing of
late, unless there were some very
��� specific object to be attained, and for
that reason the amount of Instruction
which ls Imparted to the average mllltla unit during the course of the year,
is, to say the least, a very negligible
quantity and of a very inferior brand.
During the warm evenings much work
of a useful nature, such aa outposts,
night marching, etc., etc, oould be got
through and apart from proving a
hardship wonld doubtlessly be a very
profitable source of pleasure to all
concerned. As It Is, a little drill ls
done, a lot of talking goes on and by
the time the annual Inspection comes
round the men know Just as much
about soldiering as they did when they
started. However, since tbe Inspecting
officer generally knows about a little
less than half of that, nobody says
anything and tho same old farce Is
perpetuated from year to year. It Is
a great pity that we cannot get a D.
O. Ci who will forego that idiotic and
time-expired march-past and try to tesi j
the  fighting abilities  of  the  vanouu I
corps rather than the correctness of
the compliments they pay blm. |

from the recently finished war with

such an extent that fanaticism has disappeared almost entirely but nothing
has taken its place, and to complete
the disastrous state of affairs, political corruption has undermined the organization of thetr forces and sapped

In full flight before the victorious Bul-

highest order. From all accounts during the flrst days of fighting tbeir
plan of campaign can be summed up
by the Immortal words of Lord Nelson: "Nover stop to manoeuvre, but
go at them," aud having once forced
the Ottoman troops to congruence a retreat, by a tireless harassing of the
flanks and rear, they have turned
that retreat Into a hopeless route
which can only stop at the Straits ot

that the highest orders of even Oer

Sir Wilfrid Laurier, made a special
visit to the great north country ot
Canada to make the address at the
opening of the Cobalt building. Cor
bait is a "mushroom town" that sprang
up in a few years on the discovery of
silver, and now numbers a population
of tens 'of thousands. One-fourth of
the cost of the building vvas borne by
mining companies. Lord Strathcona
was a larger giver.
Sir Wilfred said: "I have know the
good work being done by this society

versty 40 years ago, and I have seen
it in Montreal and Ottawa for the past

The soc'al benefits of the Younr
Men's Christian Association, for boy<
and yo'jng men, are unlimited except
for the lack of men in the association
work. Interlocking with the social we
find thp physical, educational, and
spiritual branches, all of which are
needed in the building of such a character a3 will stand through life and
be a blessing to home and a credit to
any man.
The comradeship of fellow association, whether it be in the association,
in the camp, or on a hike, under the
supervision of a Christian leader, is
worthy of the highest praise, and cooperation of every father and mother.
In the camp life where the bov is hi?

spirit of comradeship and on the alen
to do something for someone, we flna
him laying the foundation of life.
Here he becomes acquainted with himself as never before, and learns how-
to control and govern the boy that he

No where do we flnd such an inter

Men's Christian Association. With

do all they can to help that boy by
becoming his larger brother and coun

Sir���in the course of the last few
years I have had the pleasure of publishing a number of volumes of verse
by poets whoBe Inspiration is drawn
from their experiences of the wild
ind remote life on the distant frontiers of civilization.
Among the most notable of these
volumes have been "Songs of a Sourdough" and "Ballads of a Cheechako"
by the young Canadian poet, Robert
W. Service; 'Songs of Nigeria" by
"Adamu" (E. C. Adams); "South Africa and Other Poems" by A. Vine

and from outside the British Empire,

Of the good poetry that has been written and is still being written by pioneers of civilization, and I trust to
form a collection of sterling and stirring poetry which will make "Songs
From Overseas" a familiar name to all

keep the names of already well-
known authors before the public to
whom they most appeal, and serve as
the most effective medium of introduction for pools hitherto unknown.

A Strange Tale of a Clever
Which Was Returned.
We are officially informed that the
three miniatures stolen from the Royal Academy at Burlington Hoi �� on a
recent Saturday morning hsve been
returned and are now placed in the
exhibition, says a London paper.
The miniatures have returned but
the mystery remains. They came hick
in two brown paper parcels, duly
sealed, stamped, snd addressed in
printed letter? to "The Royal Acsd��my
of Arts, London. Glass with care.'
One parcel was delivered at 8.30 p.m..
the other an hour later.
If evidence was needed to prove
that they really did come through the
post it mght be found in the fact that
the class of one of the miniatures was
broken. But other clues beyond this
and the letters "BY." whicii may be
the postmark of Rugby or Derby, there
is none, for the sender forgoi to give
his or her name and postal address.
It is clear, therefore, that the sender
is not anxious to be thanked either
as a penitent thief or as a public
benefactor, for in one or other of these
roles he or she must appear.
The manner in which the portraits
were    abstracted    leaves    no    doubt
about the theft.    When the doors of
the  Royal  Academy were  opened  to
the public on Saturday morning there
were displayed in a velvet-lined case
with   a  glass top,  three   miniatures.
One was the  portrait of  Miss  Mary
Anson Farrer, in a white frotfk, smither  was   a  portrait  of  Mrs.   Westley
Richards in a lace fichu with a pink
rose, while the third was a portrait
of Mr. Ernest Crofts, R.A.   The case,
firmly  screwed  to a  slopping  stand,
was   in   the   water-color   rooms,    to
which there are three entrances���one
to the refreshment room, another to
the  black  and  white  room,  and  the
third to another room  leading to the
vestibule.   The risk of discovery was,
therefore, threefold.
During the first hour after opening
the visitors are few and it is admitted
that on Saturday morning some of the
janitors were withdrawn for other duties. The conditions, therefore, were
favorable, as was evident' from the
core with which the pictures were removed. It was no clumsy or amateur
housebreaking performance. The wire
pins of the brass hinges at the back
ol the case were taken out and there
was nothing more to do but raue the
glass lid and take ths miniatures from
the pins on which they hung. Miniatures once in one's possession are eajy
to hide and the ordinary visit' r to
the Royal Academy is not usually suspected of carrying away art treasure?
So much for the manner of the
crime. What of the motive? The fact
that the property has been promptly
returned suggests to the authorities
that someone has been playing "a stupid joke." If it was a practical joke
the excuse msy be discovered in the
remark of another of the chief officials
of the Royal Academy: "It may be
that the person who took them wished to demonstrate that a sufficiently
keen watch was not kept over the
exhibits. Anyhow, the detective guard
has since been increased."
It, as seems more than probable,
this is the explanation, Ihen it is clear

Under the patronage of the proponent educational societies, a lecture la
to be delivered tn the Opera House
on Nov. 14 by B. R. Baumgardt. The
lecturer haa bad a privileged Euro-
. ean experience, associated for some
time with Oxford, and has been a welcomed guest amidst tbe antiquities of
the. museums ot London, Parla, Berlin, St. Petrsburg and Alexandria,
tram which be has gathered the subject matter of hie lectures.
The title, illustrated educational lectures, conveys a meaning which Mr.
Baumgardt impresses upon: hla Hearers with a selection of views that today, are unequalled on the lecture
i.ntat'frT",   T^e'nnnortunlty to realise
that somebody has been  keeping in
mind the theft of Leonardo da Vim
ci's "La Gioconda" from the Iwnvre
in   Paris.    Whe-i  this   outrage   was
14   perpetrated Mr.  Bsiley wrote tti The
111 Timee  suggesting  that- jrreater vigil-
, ance should be exercise^ at the Royal
' Academy  and  hinting  at  opportunities.    To this warning Sir F. A.  Ka
I ton, the secretary of the Roya] Academy,   replied:   "1   would   merely   remark that if Mr. Bailey hsd attempted   to   remove   any   picture   in   the
Diploma or other galleries he would
soon  have found out whether there
was anybody looking after them; also
that though the staircase may be long
I there   is   no  way  out   of   it  except
I through the entrance hall, where there
is always a porter."

j! A Country j
;   Library
��� i   It Wielded  a Strong but    ..
* [ Silent Influence
By   P.   A.  MITCHEL
To me, a city business man, there
Is nothing more delightful, by contrast
with my accustomed tumultuous life,
than a country library. Tbere ls no
need ln one of these secluded nooks
for tbe card used In city reading
rooms, on which Is printed tbe word
"Silencer a word which seems to recognize the fact that there Is turmoil
about and a great effort is necessary
to keep It out
Being nervously tired, my physician
recommended me to go to a quiet
place and rest. I chose tbe village of
B., where no summer boarders were
to be found, and. finding qunrters In a
private family, si-ttled myself down
for a season of do nothingness. At
first tbe sensation of Idleness was
pleasant but 1 soon grew tired of It,
and one morning passing the town
library, a dainty little building built
for the purpose. I went In.
Tbe librarian was sitting at a table
witb books ln  piles about her.    Tbe
door closed behind me noiselessly, and
my footsteps made no sound on tbe
rug thnt led from It to the desk.
"I shall be in this towu for awhile,"
I began, nnd my voice, sounding very
loud, I lowered It "My purpose being to reBt 1 would like to acquire the
privilege of reading bere."
"This Is a tree library," she replied.
"Any one may use It,"
I wondered if her voice was natural
ly sweet or hnd become so from constant  modulation.    I   wished  to hear
more of It so I spoke of her surrounding*
"Tour library," I said, "resembles
In one particular, and only one, a cemetery. In the cemetery ail Is death, tbe
bodies resting In graves or on shelves
ln tombs. Here there are no bodies,
bnt your shelved are loaded wltb living
8he raised her eyes to mine, and I
saw that whatever there might be In
my comparison appealed to her.
"There are graves bere. loo," sbe
It was now my turn to listen.
"Now nnd again," she continued, "we
weed out books that nre dead. Some
of tbem are Ihe remains of a past that
has no longer any existence. Some nre
composite photographs, never bavlng
had any. life hi tliem, while some are
bad. These books Iind a tomb In the
cellar or are cremated."
"Do all of your had books find
graves?" I asked.
"Yes. ln time.    It Is tbe good that
"How do yon swonnt for that?"
"For the reason tliat there Is n con
stnnt development In mankind out of
our primitive condition Tbere waa
In that condition only the germ of bu
man good hurled in brutality. As we
advance the good Increases, while the
brutality drops ofT"
I was amazed to hnve come from s
great city, wltb Ita Intellectual stars,
to n country town to tind this feminine
"But pardon me." ahe continued;
"my time belongs to the library. How
can I serve you?"
"By permitting me to go Into one ot
these nlrnve tombs���or columlmrlimm.
as the Romans called the receptacle!
of tbe urns that held the ashes nt their
deed���nnd enjoy the books."
"Tour simile Is Inept" she replied,
smiling. "These shelves do not hold
the nshes of authors. The volumes
would hetter be typified as phono
graphic records."
"Right but even that simile falls,
for the book���or the phonographic record���Is only a medium through which
tbe dead lives."
Feeling that 1 bad taken up as much
as or more of her lime than was eirns.
able. I left ber, entered one of tbe
"columbnrlums" nnd begnn to nose
over the books. But I found that theee
living-dead peraons were cold, while
tbe librarian was full of life snd
warmth. Between me and the former
| there was nothing but a mental contact, wblle the latter drew me by a
living force.    I tried to banish tbe
��� girl and take hold of the books, but
I found the latter tasteless beside the
former. Finally 1 took up n literary
urn on the cover of which was the
name of Nathaniel Hawthorne. In ll
I found that which permitted me to
reod and dream while 1 read. I- dream
ed of the librarian. 1 created tn my
dren ma of ber something between the
living in the flesh und tbe living In
tbe paper nud which partook of the
earthly parts of neither.
I was sitting tn an easy chair read
lng and dreaming when 1 was sudden
ly recalled to myself by seeing the
librarian standing before me.
"I am sorry to disturb you," sbe
said. "It Is an hour past the time for
closing. I would not interrupt yon.
but I bave duties at home ns well as
"Why did you not call me before?"
I asked, looking up at her hnlf dazed.
"I found some odds and ends thut 1
could as well attend to, and 1 did not
need to calLyou." "���
"Nonsense, Vou were too good to Interrupt me."
A slight flush wns all the reply I received. I left her pinning on her hnt
and went out feeling that my doctor
had sent me to tlie right place, lu tbe
library I would find rest and refreshment In tbe books I would find
friends, while in tiie librarian I would
hare an ever present companion, both
In tbe eflsb and In the spirit
I went to tbe library every dny nnd
stayed each dny till I wns asbnined to
stay sny longer. The librarian wss
very good to me. and when I made
excuses to draw ber Into chat instead
of doing her work she did not repulse
me. I found the quiet of the place with
Its presiding divinity restful ns well as
delightful. I disliked to bnve nny one
come In fo break the seclusion. And
when now and again some man's sonorous voice resounded from the walls
and rolled tbrough the alcoves It seemed very much out of place.
1 remained at B. as long as I wns
able to be absent from the city, then
bade adieu to the library nnd the librarian. I told her at laking leave of
her how grateful 1 was to her and It
for the rest 1 had received and exacted
a promise from her thut If she ever
came to the city sbe would let me
know of ber arrival. My transition
from tbe quiet I had enjoyed lo the
turmoil of a metropolis grated on me.
but I soon got used to It. nnd within
twenty-four bours after my return I
wns again Immersed In business. Then
the library and the llhrurlnn were forgotten except after the work of the day
was over and I laid my hend upon my
pillow for a night's sleep.
During tbe winter I received n tiny
envelope containing n card with the
name engraved on It of Mlss Mildred
Trnsk and nn address. Who wus Miss
Trusk? Wbere had I met her? I
could not remember. However. I called on the lady and was received by���
tbe librarian.
I   hnd long  looked  forward  to  this
meeting, but now It was realized I wus
disappointed.     Mlss   Trask   did   not
seem to be the same person.   I was not
able lu the new surroundings to resume
the  relationship thut  bad existed  be   |
tween us In the retreat at U. lu which
I had passed so mnny dfcnmy hours.
My remarks were perfunctory, and her
reptles were, equniiy so.   I noticed that*1
sbe,   loo,  showed   disappointment.    1
fancied sbe blamed herself for sending
me ber cord.   This wbeu I began to gel
up some degree  of cordiality  put  a
damper on my effort
To make matters worse, I was obliged
to leave the city tbe next day to be
gone during the whole period of ber
visit and was thus prevented from
showing ber that attention I would
bave liked to sbow her. As I took
leuve of her ber hand lay passive nnd
without warmth lu mine. I tried to
say something genial, but Rhe did not
belp me. 1 wished she budn't come or
hadn't sent me her card.
I found It Impossible to let the mat
ter rest and wrote Miss Trask a letter
say lug-untruthfully-that   I   was   not
very  well nt the time of her appear
ance In tbe city, ami since my enfore
ed absence had prevented toy showing
ber any attention I  wished she would
come  ngnln     She  replied   that  there
was no probability of her soon being
able to leave her duties at the library.
The mntter troubled me lo such n de
gree tbat when tbe neit summer came
ou I determined to spend my vacation
st   B,     I   desired   to   re-establish ��� my
former relationship with the librarian,
not with Mlss Trask, for she and fhe
librarian did  not seem  to me as oue
and the same person, bill the girl of
whom I hnd dreamed In tbe alcove.
One day I made my entrance Into
the library Just as I had made II the
year liefore The door closed noiselessly behind me. nml | advanced to lhe
dealt Tbe librarian, sitting at her
table, continued her work, but I
thought I saw her start ns though she
divined the entrance of some person
of moment lo her 8be arose from the
table, turned her face to mine, ami mir
eyes met A smile of welcome broke
over her features, whicb wns returned
tiy ine In kind.
"Why were yon so repellent," she
nsked. "when I senl you my card? You
asked me to do so "
"I could not hnve answered tbnt
question till this moment II wns
meeting you In this delicious plnce."
"I'erhnps thnt was wbat was the
matter with tne."
"To he sure It waa"
Never In my life was there so qtitck a
transition ns upon my second entrance
to thc library. There bad been something dormant In me of which I bad
been unconscious, but which sprang tn
life the moment I reentered thtf place
where It hnd been born.
"Come wltb me," I snld. "Into the el
cove "
She went with me There w*. no
one besides ourselves in tbe building
1 took her in my arms,

phantom" was all unfitted to take up
and bear a burden which he himself
had latterly found no easy one. True.
ithe succession passed easily and quietly from father to son. But it was a
barren and fleeting succession nevertheless.
!   Richard Cromwell waa crushed be-
I tween the Parliament and the army,
and was soon dismissed by the latter.
He disappeared into obscurity, or, as
Monck   said,   he   "forsook   himself,"
though in truth he had no great sell,
I none  worthy  of his  great  lather,  to
forsake, and, surviving until 1712, be
jwas    hardly    ever    known    by    his
I friends  to refer to the great station
he had once occupied.   To Dryden lie
was  "the foolish  Ishbosheth."   J. R
Green  says  that he was  "weak  and
worthless," which is true enough from
the  point of  view  of  high  politics,
though it does not seem to be true that
lie was "lax nnd godless in his morals" as the same historian also says.
Kindlier  nnd more   to  the  point  is
the verdict of the saintly Mrs. Hutch-
jinson���"Gentle and virtuous, but became not greatness."
|    It was in the welter that ensued on
I Richard Cromwell's fall that England
I found in Monck a great, silent, disin-
; terested soldier, who, having no axes
of his own to grind, as the modern
[phrase runs, was slowly impelled by
the force of circumstances and his own
(shrewd judgment of their lvearing to
pronounce    for    the    restoration    of
Charles II. as the only solution of the
existing confusion and impending anarchy.    His decision  was  immensely
popular, nnd he became the idol of the
Kingdom   until   Charles   himself   appeared on the scene.
We all know how the king was received, with what immeasurable rejoicing and welcome. "I stood in tiie
Strand." says Evelyn, "and beheld it,
and blessed God And all this was
done without one drop ol blood shed,
and by that very army that rebelled
against him; but it was the Lord's
doing, for such a restoraion was never mentioned in any history, ancient
or modern since the return of the
Jews from the Babylonish cuptivity;
no.- so joyful n day and so bright ever
seen in this nation, this happening,
when to expect or effect such it was
past all human policy."
Such was the :>entiiiient of the time
If the two sons of Charles I. had been
other, better, and wiser men than they
were, it micht have been the sentiment of to-day. Hut the revolution
came in due course, and tlie House uf
Stuart fell never to rise again.
Yet, in spite of the faults arid follies of the Inter Stuarts, personal |..y.
o'.ty to their House and Dynasty loug
survived the expulsion oi James II.
fmm the throne. It runs as a thread
of undying romance throughout the
otherwise drab texture of early Hanoverian times. It inspired some ol
the most winning paces of Sett, nnd
lives still in many a plaintive Jacobite
ballad wliich fills us all with tender-
Such is the tou-hing persistence of
"lost cause and impossible loyalties."
A   Piquant   Position.
Sir Henry Bellingham, who is His
Majesty's lieutenu: t for the county of
Louth, is a man of considerable influ
ence in Ireland.
He was educated at Harrow and
Exeter College, Oxford, and besides
being called to the Bar he served ns a
captain of the 5th Battalion Koyal
Irish Rifles. Hp was Commissioner of
National Education for Ireland, and
in 1380 he was elected M.P. for the
county of Louth, During his Parliamentary career his position was very
piquant nd interesting, for though a
Conservative he Was iui avowed home
ruler. To quote his own confession uf
faith, which he made recently: "In
the year I8S0, when I stood ns an
avowed home ruler for this county of
Louth. I received thc support both of
Ihe Oar'.to 6 Club and the Conservative Win. Further, during the time
I was in Parliament 1 was regularly
summoned to the meetings of th������ Conservative party, and I have letters in
iny possession from some of the Conservative leaders which are complete
evidence of complicity with h> me
ruW." Old letters generally wiusi

that for many years Conservatives sat
as home rulers. Mr. Ponar Law must

A renin rkible personality is Sir
Dighton Probyn, who is now approaching fill 80th year. For moro
years tlian probably he cares to remember he has served the royal family, ar.d he is the second oldest courtier who is still in attendance. It is
sixty years since he Joined the army.
He wer.t through the Mutiny and was
present at the siego of Delhi, taking
part in innumerable engagements. He
commanded the 2nd Puniab Cavalry,
and wns rewarded with the Victoria
Cross for tlie gallantry he displaved in
several furious encounters with the
Sepoys. He fouaht his way through
a crowd of bloodthirsty rebels, and
succeeded in gaining- possession of a
standard, thus earning special com
mendation from his superior offlcer.
Following on the Mutiny he snw further active service in India, and added to his alresdy brilliant reputation

The name of Professor still clings
to him since those distant days when
he taught biology in the University
of Odessa. About thirty years ago
he took up the study of medicine,
particularly that part of it to which
biology naturally led up. He came
to Paris in 1888, or twenty-four years
ago. Since that time he has been
connected with the Pasteur Institute,
the immortal founder of which took
him at once to his bosom.
For Pasteur hud already read nnd
admired the works of the learned
Russian. Pasteur paid this savant
the small salary of eight hundred
dollars a year. But we must renumber that   th"   world-famed   institute.
Love May or May Not Be Permanent
as the Cate May Be.
A clever saying by Percy White,
in "The Patient Man," points out
tliat marriage is the great dispe'.ler of
the illusions with which passion binds
humun reason; that marriage creates
for its.lf perspectives in whicii character attains its justest value. Love
and hallucination are twin-brothers;
marriage the interpr?ter of their
mysteries. Now this, though cl��ver,
is not wholly true. Love can exist,
real, powerful love, without any
hallucination, and this is the love
that lasts. If the love does not last,
(lien it was not lov.\ hut hallucination or illusion, marriage or no marriage. It did not need the sacrificial���
for it is sacrificial, even at its best-
altar of matrimony to be the means
of dispelling the illusion. Time alone
would" have done that. Marriage may
be an eye-opener, but Time is one
also, and may' be a better one.
Husbands and wives choose one
another, or are chosen, or the
matches nre made by others, and it
seems to be the merest toss up, under
all conditions, as to whether the
match will be successful or not. There
is, of course, such a thing as "shaking down," in course of time, even
with matches that might in the beginning have heen described as unequal, or even unhappy- There is
sueh a thing a3 g'tting us-d to the

was then on'y such a tiny concern
that Dr. Metehnikoff deciinsd for n
time lo accept even the pittanc- which
Pasteur could ill afford to pay.
Only since 1910, when a legacy left
by tho philanthropist Osiris���the same
who gave the Chateau de Malmaison
to France���cnme into   operation, has
Metehnikoff begun to receive a salary
of three thousand dollars a year.   He
was   then,    and    is    now,    assistant
managsr   of   the   Pasteur   Institute.
As vice-president Metchnikoff's habits
ore of the simplest, h_> can afford to
spend what he earns on philanthropic
cuuses.   His clothes cost a minimum.
During th�� day,   while   occupied   in
his laboratory  at the  Pasteur  Institute,   he   wears   overalls.    When   hc

in a shiny black   coat   whieh at   its

usually awry and sometimes one side
of   a shirt   collar,   clamoring   to  hi
sent to the   laundry,   is   open.    His

Dr. Metehnikoff travels by the
underground railway to the St. Lazare
station, always second class. He pays
three cents for the trip. Out to his
tiny vi'.ia at Veil net h' also travels
second class, doubtless because there
is not s third. Here he and his wife
lead tha simplest of lives. Th��y are
almost vegetarians. They drink much
milk and eat many vegetables.
Dr. Metehnikoff is usually described as a Jew. and he has the characteristics of that ancient and clever
race. Yet his fath?r belonged to the
| orthodox or national churc'i ot Russia,
and his mother was a Protestant.

The nephew assented dutifully.

The nephew murmured sympathetically that he had always understood
that it was so.

Hats  In Mexico.
In    Mexico    and    ether    Spanish
speakirg   countri's   the  hat   has   for
centurits   be.'n   the   object  of  man's
vanity.   Tbe custom found its origin
in the days when th�� Hapsburg power  was  supreme.    One of the  most
cherished    privileges    that   the    old
grandees enjoyed was that of wearing
their hats in the presence of royalty.
The  absolute power  ol the monarch
left them little else to do but enter*
into rivalry with one another in regard  to  the  srl^ndor  of  their head
ooverings.   The   gay   cor.oeit   spread
raoidly throughout the Spanish dom-
in.ons, and even to^iay characteristic
gugarioal hats may be found in Mexico for sale at the astounding price
of from $500 to $1.000 for a single hat.

It is an impossibility to fully sympathise with another's experience
unless it has been at some time one s

A Bsar and a Log Jsm.
A big log jam that on one occasion
blvclted a river was broken in a pe-^
culiar manner. A brown bear was noticed by one of the rivermen prowl-
ii g around the skids and later was
observed crawling over the piled up
timber. Gradually bruin worked his
way down to the key log and atticked
it frantically. Instantly the mass ot
logs broke. The bear was crushed to
pieces. Later it was learned that the
key log was filled with honey.

The Friendly islands of the South
Sea are described as an earthly Eden.
The natives have nothing to do but
catch flsh, gather fruit, sing songs and
grow fat. The women are very .beautiful, but a trifle heavy, weighing between 850 and 400 pounds. When a
white man goes there to live he has to
e'eposit $50 with the Government. If
he lives a decent life this money is
returned to bim at the end of two
years. II he makes trouble the money
is confiscated and he is deported.
