Servia Declares War, Followed by Bulgaria and Greece���
King Ferdinand Leaves Sofia for Frontier-Holy Crusade
Proclaimed-Greek Success in Struggle for Mastery of Sea.
Belgrade, Servla, Oct. 17.���War
against Turkey was formally declared
tonight by the Servian government.
The declaration waa transmitted to
the Servian minister at Constantinople this afternoon and Instructions to present it to the Porte tomorrow. The minister will leave Immediately for Belgrade.
The grest powers will also receive
notification   tomorrow   of
declaration.
Immense crowds paraded the
streets, singing and cheering, after
the announcement of Servia's determination to light. The crowds are
increasing hourly and an enthusiastic
war spirit prevails.
Greece Follows Suit.
Athens. Oct. 18.���2:'30 a.m��� Greece,
not wishing to detach herself from
her allies, sent Instructions early tbis
morning to the minister at Constantinople to communicate a declaration
of war to the Porte. Greece,' at the
same time, sent a fraternal greeting
to the allied states.
Servla was the first of the three
states to declare war last night Bulgaria followed with a similar declaration.
Bless Holy Wer.
Soda. Oct. 17.���King Ferdinand is
on his way to the headquarters of the
Bulgarian army near the Turkish
frontier. The King's manifesto to the
people proclaiming war will be pub-,
lished tomorrow. A special service
will be beld in the cathedral when
the archbishop will Invoke a blessing
on the holy war on which the country
ls embarking. Similar services will
be held throughout the country.
Premier Ouechoff Issued a statement today on the attitude of Turkey
saying:
"With pride which ill accords with
the miserable role she plays ln the
European concert. Turkey has Jus'
declared that the identical note of
the three Balkan states docs r.ot
merit an answer."
The premier characterized this aa
comical In view of Lord Salisbury's
definition of Turkey at the Berlin conference as "a power dependent upon
other powers for Its existence," and
adds:
Ridicules Turkey.
"Turkey also accuses the Balkan
states of   lacking   deference   to the
igreat powers, lt is ridiculous that a
government, that (ince the Crimean
war bas done nothing but trample under foot its pledges to the great
powers upon whose protection it depends, should accuse ns of failure to
show respect for its protectors."
Little is likely to be heard of the
European conference until some decisive action has been fought, when
Servia's doubtless the European concert will
renew Its efforts to bring about peace
on broad lines.
On Land and Sea.
The war is expected to develop into
a land campaign between Bulgaria
and Turkey and a naval struggle between Turkey and Greece. It ls believed Turkey will concentrate her
strength and attack the Bulgarians
separately before the Servians corns
to their aid. Much will depend on
whether Turkey gains command of
the sea, which would facilitate th?
transportation of her Asiatic troops
to the theatre of war.
Little is known as to how far the
allied Balkan states have concerted
their plans. The Independent action
of Montenegro seems to indicate that
a settled course is beipg followed.
The Bulgarian cahfnet Is sitting to
night In continuous session, but is
having difficulty In communicating
with Belgrade and Athens. News of
actual fighting Is indefinite and conflicting, the Turks claiming substantial victories over the Montenegrins
Greek Naval Victory.
The Greeks are rejoicing over their
first naval victory, two gunboats forcing Prevosa strait. This feat give3
the Greeks command of the Gulf of
Arta and secures a supply of stores
to the army of Eplrus.
Through the official declaration of
war, Greece ls deprived of tbe services of a Chinese cruiser which she
had arranged^Jo purchase at Newcastle, as she has been obliged to
abandon the purchase for fear ot
diplomatic complications. The four
destroyers which Greece purchased at
Liverpool shipped naval crews at Algiers and have started for Greece,
conveying the steamer Macedonia,
which has on board Greek reservists
from New York. These sea wasps
will prove serviceable If they succeed
in reaching a Greek port without be
Ing Intercepted hy Turkish ships.

Perhaps one of the most brazen
holdups ever committed in the citv
was that which took place last even
ing at the B. C. E. It. waiting shed
adjoining the Gr'eat Northern station.
When one bears of a holdup, it It
generally Imagined that the affair
took place in some dark corner, bu:
tbe individual who spent the night
In the cells, charged with tb* attempt
made no bones of pulling off thr
atunt uader the glare of as electric
llgbt standard. His name and that oi
tbe man held up were unobtainable
last evening but the following factt
tell the story.
Both men boarded a Sapperton cat
at the end of tbe line, one of then
handling a gun in a suspicious man
ner. Conductor Couglar told the mai
he bad better stow the weapon ou
of sight or get off the car. They bot'.;
alighted at tbe Great Northern cross
lng and Couglar caught a glimpse o
the gun sticking to the other man*,
ribs.
He reported the affair to the potlc-
about 8.30 o' clock and Sergean.
Bruce with a constable immediatel;
requisitloned the patrol and found
the couple in the B. C. E. R. shed
the fully loaded revolver still bein;
pointed in a dangerous position.
The assailant was arrested and wll
have the opportunity of explaining
his side of the case before Magistrate
Edmonds In police court this morning. According to eyewitnesses, the
man appeared to have been drinking
but was In such shape as to understand the position he was bringing
upon himself.

All the two hundred who signed

Chicago, Oct. 17.���Throughout a
day of unbroken calm. Colonel Hooee

with virtually no variation of his

with the ever-present.possibly of
complications, but with lessened fears-
on tbe part of those who were on
watch.
Colonel Roosevelt appeared to havs
recovered from the shock of the bullet which for a lime drained bis
vitality, and. so far as a casual observer could detect, he was in hls
normal condition, but there was no
relaxation ln the strict regime, and
his physicians said he waa not out of
danger.
Colonel Roosevelt's physicians were
discussing among themselves tonight
the time necessary for tbe colonel to
remain In the hospital. It was thought
It might be safe for him to leave for
Oyster Bay Monday or Tuesday, but
not even a tentative decision was
reached.
The clinical records were tbe most
encouraging of any day since Colonel
Roosevelt entered the hospital. During tho morning the variation in tem-

Ottawa. Oct. 17.���A new system
adopted by the department of labor
requiring contractors to keep a record
of the names and addresses of all
their employees, is' resulting in much
good to the laboring classes. In the
past many an unknown workman bas
died ln railway construction camps
without-his family being even notified as to when or how he came to
his death.
Under tbe new regulations the eon-
tractors have to send in a filled form,
supplied   by   the   department,  which
immediately communicates with   the
family of tbe deceased and forwards
hls   personal belongings.   A   recent
case ln point was that of a Russian
workman who was killed in a dynamite ^Jirfbatoh'at the end tr
on the G. T. P. In British Columbia.
The department, through the Rasslan
consul at Montreal, forwarded tha sad
news to his wife In Russia, together
with hls personal belongings   aad th<s
money coming to blm Irons fhe contractors.
Had this accident occurred a   tew
months  ago,  the' family  ��* tbo    **>_
ceased would In all probability never I
have learned what happened to hiss. I
The system has also worked te tbe
advantage of several Canadian families who have lost  relatives through
sickness or accident when engaged on
construction work.
Ottawa, Oct. 17.-Thar the resign*
uon of Hon. F. D. Monk Is now in ttn-
mads of Premier Borden and that it
will shortly go into effect tt practically certain. The probable, early retirement of the minister of public
.works has been the subject of much
���peculation todiay in the capital and.
while there is a general agreement to
the effect tbat he will cease to be a
minister, there ib nothing definite aa
to Just when the resignation wiU go
into effect.
j T^ie reason for Mr. Monk's retirement from tbe cabinet is that he believes the government should submit
its emergency naval proposals to a-
plebisclte of the Canadian people: Aa
the majority of the members of the
cabinet are opposed to such a proposal, Mr. Monk will seek retirement.
Strain of Public Wprks.
The general impression Is that the
minister will not accept a place oa
the bench, but will retain his seat iis
parliament. Apart from his disagreement with the majority, W his colleagues on the navy question, it can
be safely stated that Mr. Monk has
never been enamored with his position as minister of public works. A
man of fine scholastic attainments and
a student, he has found the burden of
detail of the department of public
works f. wt&rtrome load'which he will
not be sorry to ��ay dow,P..,
The cabinet council met this afternoon and again thisevenkigL butthere
was no announcement as .jto'the data

Washington, Oct. 17.���Lavish us?
of money by the supporters of President Taft in the Michigan primary
campaign was figured before the
Clapp committee today by James O.
Murfin, a Detroit lawyer. >.
Murfin said that when he and Cap
tain Alger raised $1500 and offered it
to John D. McKay, in charge of tin
Taft campaign, McKay said: "Ha
had plenty of money���more than he
had ever had before ln any campaign."
"lt ls a matter of general knowledge," Murfin testified, "that the primaries in Detroit this year were the
most corrupt on both sides that were
ever known.
"It was as bad on one side as the
other; but our people were the most
skillful and we got the delegates.
"I asked Mr. Warren how much
money was to be used In Wayne County. He asked me how much I
thought was necessary. I told him
that not more than $2300 could be
spent honestly. He told me Mr. McKay Insisted on having $5000 before
he started.
" 'Well,' I said, 'we'll have a rotten
campaign,' and we did," declared the
witness emphatically.
"It was the worst campaign we ever
saw."
"Why, senator," he exclaimed, answering Senator Pomerene, "both
sides bartered for those delegates likg
so many sheep. Some of them accepted money from both sides. Of
courst, I don't know the details, but
that was the general situation."
"Who would know the details?"
asked Senator Pomerene.
"John D. Murray."

NO DATE FIXED EOR     NEPHEW OE DIAZ AT
PARLIAMENT OPENING    HEAD OE REVOLIITIOO
London, Oct. 17.���Reports from
Constantinople today show tbat Turkey has opened hostilities and Ottoman troops have crossed the borders
of Bulgaria and Servia in several
places. Three divisions of the Turkish army 'are taking part in the advance.
The formal declaration of war
against the two Balkan states was
published by the Turkish government
today.
On the northern borders of Greece
there have been important engagements between the Ottoman guards
and bands of Oreek soldiers.
Greek gunboats A. and D., according ito a cable from Athens this morning, forced the Turkish blockade at
the narrow entrance to the Gulf of
Arta despite the heavy fire from Fort
Prevassa, which dominates the entrance. The gunboats reached the
Greek port of Venltza, on.the southern shore, and suffered little damage,
the marksmanship cf the Turks being
poor.
From Sofia comes the news that
King Ferdinand has left for the headquarters of the Bulgarian army on
the Turkish frontier and it is believed
tbat on hls arrival there he will make
a formal declaration of war.
In the advance on Scutari the Montenegrin princes, Danilo and Peter,
have been busy in the engagements,
personally leading their forces. Prince
Peter has been promoted to a major
for gallantry.
General Marllnovitch's division has
worked its way closer to Scutari, and
it is stated that an Austrian vessel
has been ordered up the Boyana river
to bring the Austrian consul and his
colony from Scutari.
The conclusion of peace between
Italy and Turkey has greatly relieved
the shipping trade, owing to the
heavy insurance premiums imposed
during the activity of the Italian
fleet in the Turkish waters.
Massacred Non-Combatants.
London, Oct. 17.���The Dally Mail's
Constantinople correspondent says he
is informed by the war minister that
there is a division of Montenegrins
descending to the west of Lake Scutari who destroyed on Tuesday all
the villages between the lake and the
sea, massacring women and children.
Did  Turkey Get Loan.
Berlin. Oct. 17.���Notwithstanding
the denials In America it is positively
asertcd from an important d'ploma-
tic e.uarter that Turkey actually succeeded in getting a loan of twelve
million dollars ln New Ycrk over a
week ago.
Destroyers Convoy Patriots.
Algiers, Oct. 17.���An escort of four
Oreek destroyers is conveying the
Greek steamer Mayo Donia with
Greeks. Bulgarians and Servians on
b^ard returning from America to join
tlieir regiments in tbe fight against
iii" Turks. She carries a large cargo
of ammunition.
Not Part of ^heme.
London. Oct. 17.���The Sofia correspondent cf the Times says: "So far
from Montenegro having begun war
is part of the allies' plan, both the
Bulgarian and Greek Governments
have addressed remonstrances to
King Nicholas against precipitate action. Tbe Montenegrin Government
was resolved not to let pass the unique-opportunity to begin a war wblcb
has been forseen many years."
Conditions  Are Terrible.
London, Oct. 17.���Considerable bodies of Servian troons hnve been sent
across the Bulgarian border to jo'n
Hie Bulgarian army, says a despatch
from Nlsch.
Describing the terrible conditions of
the hospital at Tushl. a Podgorltza
^err"seondent savs tbnt a hundred
wounded Turks are lying about hair
raked awaiting treatment. The floor*
ire littered with Putrid med'oal dre*"-
Ingi. The Tnr'Msh doctors are apathetic, doing nothfng.
The Cettlnje correspondent of the
Dalllv Mail tells of the crying need
for first aid societies. He savs tha
hospital arr��ngements at Podgorltza
are very bad.
There is no proner sanitation, and
operations are performed ir the crud
��st manner after dvi of delay, with
",o preliminary dressings.
Reported That House WHI Net Assemble Until January���Talk of Naval
Policy.
Ottawa, Oct 17.���A meeting cf th"
Cabinet Council was held today, anc
when it was over it was stated tha
the date for the assembling of parliament bad not yet been fixed. The delay in the announcement lias led to
the revival of the report that the
house will not meet until January. It
is probable, however, that no definite
decision has yet been arrived at.
The report that Hon. F. D. Monk
will resign before tbe house meets
has been revived. The report naturally ls connected with Jhe consideration
of the naval question, it being asserted In some quarters that the Minister
of Public Works desires to bave the
proposal to grant an emergency contribution to the exchequer to be sub
mitted to the people.
It ls stated that the proposal which
Premier Borden will submit to his
cabinet ls the Immediate contribution
of $30,000,000, and the repeal of ths
Laurier Naval Act. This will constitute the temporary pollcy of the government, the permanent policy to be
brought down later. Whatever trvth
there may be tn tho renort that Mr.
Monk may resign it would appear that
there is something under the surface
that Is delaying the announcement of
the date of the onen'ng of pnrl'a
menL In both political and officia'
olrcles the Impression Is gradual!;
growing stronger that there is at leas
an even chance that parliament wl"
not convene until January.
A decision to defer tho opening un
til the latter dato would be pleasin-
to the majoritv of the Western ant"
Maritime members, manv of whon
have within the past couple of montn
expressed the desire that there jhoul''
be no November session with a lon;
recess over Christmas and New Year
which makes It necessary for tbem t
either take a long trip to their home*-
or remain ln Ottawa with nothing t:
do f r a period of three weeks.
Says  Revolt  Started   at   Request of
"Best Element of Army and Revolutionary   Army."
Mexico, City, Oct. 17.���Dispatches
rcelved here today from Vera Cruz,
where General Felix Diaz, nephew of
Porllrlo Diaz, deposed president of
Mexico, has raised the banner of rebellion, attribute to Diaz the statement that he started the revolt at tha
request of "the best element of the
army, and almost all of the revolutionary army."
Tbe statement adds: "My program
is to re-establish peace, and to deliver
the government into the hands of ths
men whom the people really want to
rule."
After entering Vera Cruz with 60i>
of the 21st Infantry and one battery
of six guns, revolutionists Were then
placed In charge of the gunboats
Bravo and Tampico, which were ly-
iny In the harbor.
General Eugeniolls, commander ot
the troops ln tbe state of Yucatan, ls
reported to favor Diaz, and It Is feared here that he wlll join the uew rebellion.
Congress today Is seriously considering the demand that members, of
President Madero's cabinet resign.
The ministers involved are charged
with having secured millions of dollars through grafting methods.
MEN STILL NEEDED
IN HARVEST FIELDS
WILL   REIMPOSE   CEMENT   DUTY
Remission Concession Expires at End
of This Month.
Ottawa, Oct. 17.���The per'od set by
the government d.iring which half cf
the duty should be remitted upen cement lmrorted into Canada expire?
Oct. 31. and after that date there wll'
be no remission of the duties pa'd
The remission was granted as the result of strong representations from
boards of trade and contractors of the
various western cities which are unable to procure the commodity from
Canad'an e.omnaniei. After careful
cons!d3raiicn tbe minister of finance
reconnrnded. In v',ew of the searcltv.
thft hnlf of the duty should be remitted to those Import'ng from the
United S��a��es. The remission has **���
tended over a per'od of about five
months during which time an Immense ouantlly of cement has been
Imported and a lar^e amount cf
money returned bv the d��partmentof
customs. After Oct. 31. however,
there will be no further remissions.
Any further action which may be
taken will not be made publ'c until
tbe budget ls brought down next session.

Hawaii ror Taft.
Victoria. Oct. 17.-The Hawaiian Is
lands are in favor of Taft for president, according to Mr. A. Lister of
Honolulu, who Is here on a visit. As
the Inhabitants of the Islands have no
votes for the presidency, their Opinions do not really make much difference, but they are opposed to Wood
row Wilson on account of his attitude
on the tariff. Sugar is the Important
article In the Islands and If the tariff
Is removed they fear tbey will be injured by foreign competition. Mr.
Roosevelt has very little following.
King Good Horseman.
London. Oct. 3 7.���Englishmen are
particularly proud of the fact, If fact
It be, that King Georije during the recent army inaueuvres covered a
greater distance on horseback in en-;
Any thn" his Imnerlal covn'n. Emperor Wlllhelm, whose record for one
day at the Kaiser manoeuvres Is g'ven
as 34 miles, while King George's is
put down as 50.
Winnipeg, Oct. 17.���"Harvesters ars
coming in," said Mr J. Bruce Walker,
"but not in as large numbers as I
would like to see. Saskatchewan U
very much ln need of men, and at
Saskatoon the farmerB are paying as
j high as $4.50 and $4.75 per day."
From the harvesters' ticket ofTice at
the C. P. R., it was learned that about
300 farm hands from the East had already arrived this week, and about
200 are expected on each train from
the East today. It seems that at
every point In Manitoba farmers are
short of men ard nre offering a uniform price of $3 per day. At Virden
100 men are needed and a loud hua
and cry comes from Morden, Man.,
Pilot Monnd, K.Harney, Deloraine,
Carman. Elm Creek and Treherne.
The rate of one cent a mile In Manitoba will be in effect until the end of
October and the half cent rate will be
effective to points further west until
the 35th. Even the small number
that have responded to the call, will
heln solve the vexing question of tho
gathering of the grains before th)
frost comes and with a continued dry
spell the farmers are quite sure that
there will be very little left of the
vast crop by the end of October.
In the agricultural   llstrlct   aroupd
Saskatoon    the demand  for help , Is,
greatest. At this point as high as $!.?}
a day has been offered, and ye(
farmers declare they connot get
clent men.
On No. 1 trains   tonight   a
party of men  from  Ontario   ai^g
pected, and It Is understood that'
wlll go   directly   to   the   dlst
points In Saskatchewan.

"PLUMS
The "plums" of life are for the people who know   how to
them and where to pick them. You have heard of Penticton.
ard McBride knows lt, and this ls what he says of It: "Penticton ever
to the fore."   Where do the "plums" tome ln?
Penticton in the literal sense cannot help growing them because
of its sunny dry clime and fertile soil. It Is rich In Its orchards and
richer ln Its possibilities. Probably you wer^ at the Exhibition last
week and saw exactly what can be grown ln this Penticton. Such apples. Have a look In the window of the Peoples Trust Co. and see
the display. It will tell you at a glance better than we can in writing. But lt is to the possibilities of the town we want to draw your
attention. It is the centre of the Okanagon fruit growing district. It
is prosperous even now with the water transportation on Lake Okanagon but with the railway now being built the city wlll grow by leaps
and bounds.
Your plums can be picked now by securing some of the cheap

VARIETY OF SPORT
^    AWAITS TOMORROW
Native  Sons Rugby Club Will   Make
Debut���Rovers and Celtics���
Ladles*  Hockey.
There will be enough sporting
events to go around on Saturday
afternoon. At Queens park the Westminster rugby team wlll clash with
tbe Native Sons of Vancouver, tbe
latest acquisition to the Rugby union.
Thc Royals have yet to win a game.,
but the way in which they held the
Highlanders to a close score playing
in Vancouver leaves reason to hope
they will put one over the NatlveB.
That the newcomers must have
strong reasons for entering the league
is undoubted, and they will probably
field a strong fifteen. However, If
the Royals wlll only use their heads
more a victory for them should be
assured. Time and time again on
Saturday last the forward division
missed chances which should have
resulted ln touchdowns. However,
tbeir hopes are not dashed by any
means and with play equalling the
enthusiasm a victory for Westmlnstei'
should be forthcoming.
The Rovers play the Celtics on
Moody park. This Is the second meeting cf the clubs this season, the
Celtics being defeated In a friendly
paint in the opening bout. Their defeat by the Thistles to the tune of
6-1 on Saturday last, was one of the
surprises of the day, and up to the
present the fans have yet been unable
to fathom the mystery.
Manager Grant will take no chances
whatever and with all his players in
the rink of condition, the Rovers
should have little difficulty in notch-
ine tiirir first  victory.
The City league teams nre to clash
cn til*? Sapperton park, tiie arrangements ha vine; yet to be perfected.
The Burnaby and New Westminster
I ad'es Hockey club will meet the R. i

WESTMIN8TER     OPERA     HOUSE.
The popularity of Verdi's masterpiece, "II Trovatore" (The Trouba
dour), written in the flrst flush of his
youthful genius seems never to wane.
Always It fascinates and charms b>
Its hauntlngly beautiful music and its
tragic tale of medieval Italy. Th?
story turns on the fact that the Count
dl Luna has lost a young brother t<
kidnapping gypsies, and that thi.
child, now grown to man's estate at.
Manrlco, the troubadour, wlthou-
knowing the relaUpusbip,. fallen jiqvc
with the beautiful Lenora. the same
lady who has inspired dl Luna with
the tender passion.
The count chances upon Manrtci
when he is serenading his lady love,
and a flght ensues, from which Manrlco escapes with a slight wound.
Nursed back to health by Azucena, hs
foster-mother In the gypsy camp, he
hears that Lenora, convinced that he
has been killed. Is about to take tin;
veil. He rises from his sick bed to
ro to the rescue. Arriving, he find
'hat dl Luna has already abducted her
from the nuns, but he overpowers thi
count's men and takes her to the
���?ypsy camp. Here preparations for
the wedding are being made, when
news Is brought that his loved Azuo
cena has fallen Into the count's hand
and is to be tortured.
Breaking away from the weeping
Lenora he hastens to tbe rescue again,
but Is himself captured and thrbwn In-
'o a dungeon to await execution. The
lesperate Lenora, .thereupon, offers
herself to dl Luna If he wljl liberate
Manrlco. The count agrees and per-
nits her to carry the news to her
lover. He guesses what has happened, but does not see the full extent
)f her sacrifice till She sinks dying
having contrived to escape the count
*)y taking poison. The latter enters,
and full of rage at the trick, orders
Manrlco instantly executed, arid as
the axe falls outside, Azucena, broken
and dying from the rack, rises on her
elbow and curses the count, telling
hlm he has killed his own brother.
Tonight the Sheehan organization
will present "II Trovatore" at thB
New Westminster Opera House.

A Mining Camp  Melodrama With an
Unexpected Climax.
Joseph Jefferson used to say that bis

Ibe bud lu a small western town.   He
��t tliat time was a member of a small
pioneer company wblcb progressed by
means of three "bull teams" from one
ruining camp to another.    They were
u I ways heartily received by tbe miners Hnd cowboys, wbo readily psld tbe
f.'i In gold  required to witness tbeir
performance.    Mr. Jefferson wss tbe
traditional melodramatic villain and ln
tbe third act was supposed to kidnap
"the  child."    The  supposed   mother,
bearing Its cries, rushes upon the scene
Just as be ls about to escape and flres
s fruitless shot from a revolver.
Cpou this particular occasion all had
gone well until this scene wu reached,
and the audience, many ot whom had
never before seen any kind of theatrical performance, sat as If spellbound.
At tb* crack of th* mother'* revolver,
however, tbe spell was rudely broken.
"By heaven ah* missed hlm."' a red
sfelrted miner la tb* front row shouted, drawing hls own six shooter and
leaping to his feet "Round to th*
back door and bead blm off 'for* be
can git a hoss. boys!" be yelled, and.
following him, half th* audience stampeded for to* exit.

"Nonsense!" cried Beth crisply.
"What have I. for Instance, to worry

"Perhaps you nre worrying about

"Out With it. Millie," suid the girl at

against Tom KlabeauV
Millie arched ber brows. "I? Nothing." she said.
"You hinted enough "
"1 merely heard [.ester Wimples utter a foolish remark to Irving Morris
and It set me thinking." admitted Mrs.
Lelghton after a little pause.
Beth's lips were pressed firmly together. "You bare said ao much- ynu

"Well, they Wre speaking about
Tommy's Infest siren. 1 suppose you
are fearfully Jealous."
"Not In the least," returned Beth
proudly.

"It's enough that she Is yellow and
shining and a siren of the first degree," said Millie.
"Bleached, of course." Beth's Up
was contemptuous.
"Tbey seem to like 'em that way,"
observed Millie thoughtfully.
Beth was thoughtful for a little while
and twice she ran her fingers through
ber brown locks and stole a glance at
her reflection In the oval mirror. "I
wonder If he hns had her out ln blr
new car?" she asked suddenly.
"I believe so." admitted Millie.
"Have you seen  her?"  insisted the

she cried warmly. "I have faith in
him in spite of everybody."
"It's Just ns well to tnke it tbst
way," soothed Millie calmly.
"1 wonder what her name is," said
Beth.
"Clare. I believe." admitted the
wldoW.
"Clare." murmured Beth thoughtfully. "1 'wonder whnt he would say if
1 asked him to Introduce me to Clare?"
"It would be the best Joke of the sen-
son." said Mrs. I.eighton. stifling a
yawn.
"Joke?" questioned Beth. "Dear Millie, I nm in dead earnest I promise
you the next time I see Tommy Flu-
beau 1 shall ask him to introduce me
to his latest siren. Clare."
"I'll see thnt you don't forget that
promise." snld Millie gleefully.
As the days went on Beth grew
strangely Jealous of her lover. Wliile
she had never seen her betrothed in
the company of another girl, she wus
constantly on the lookout to discover
blm in one of his auto rides about the
country. But when he left the hotel
he was invariably alone, and when he
returned he had no companion. Beth
refused to accompany him under one
pretext or another. First she must
know If he was faithful to ber.
Then one glorious afternoon, wben
she had Just emerged from the hotel
with Millie Lelghton. Tommy Kliibean
rounded the curved drive before the
door and shouted an invitation to ride.
Millie accepted carelessly, and lieth
found herself swept forward into lhe
seat beside Tommy, wliile Lester
Whapely appeared from nowhere and
occupied the otlier touncau seat besldo
tbe little widow.
Tommy Flabeau. usually carelessly
Jovial, was dark with despair, for hia
ladylove bad led him a most disagreeable chase the past ten days, lle understood Millie Leigbtou's ruse In getting Beth Into the car, and he knew
Belli well enough to be certain that the
Incident was as unwelcome and unex-
lieeled to her as to himself.
The machine flew over the perfect
roads with a low humming murmur
nud with a slight vlbrailon which
gradually Jarred Beth's flower trimmed hut backward on ber head untll
Its huge dimensions formed a frame for
ber lovely face, quite hiding It from
the couple In the tonueau.
All nt once Tommy Flabeau leaned
over and nsked Beth a question.
"What's the matter between you and
me, Heth?" he asked bluntly.
"Matter?" faltered Beth,
"Yes. You've hardly spoken to me
for ten days, and when you are newly
engaged to a fellow Ihat means something, you know." Tommy's tone was
unmistakably tierce.
Ileth's eyes tilled with tears of relief. It was good to make confession
In him, and she wns sure--sure Ihat
everything would come out all right,
lie would forget the horrid Clare, the
clrl wilh the bleached hair, whom Lester Whapely had vulgarly called n
"peacheiino" and whom everylwidy
called a "siren."
"It's your siren, Tommy," she said In
��� wabbly voice.
"My siren.1" almost shouled Mr. '-'In-
lieau. "What's the mntter with my
��lren. eh?" lie reached down, and Instantly there floated out on the evening breeze a few delicious, harmonious
notes. Beth caught ber breath sharply, for surely It was playing the o|��en-

Whapely had shortened to Clare.
"I never believed It anyhow. Tommy," murmured Beth, turning her
flower-like face to his.

bent down toward ber.

IT ENGLISH ACCENT]
>R. RAMSAY WRIGHT'S PRONUN-
CIATION  IS FAMOUS.
Toronto University Professor Whi Is
, Retiring 7r��m Active Work Is One
of Canadi't Finest Academic Lecturers and Is Widely Known For
His Scholarship ss Well as For ths
English Turn to His Words.
Dr. Ramsay Wright, who, in June
���retired from the position of Professor
of Biology in ths University ol To-
ronto, is sometimes spoken of as tha
"Scotchman with the Oxford accent."
Even when hs speaks French lt is
witb an Oxford accent. This fact haa
brought forth many jokes at the an-,
nual Mock Parliaments at Varsity.
The story is told that when Convocation Hall was nearly completed, ons'
<lay Prof. Ramsay Wright and Principal Hutton went over to try th*
acoustics of ths new building. Raising his voice tb* doctor called to a
-workman in one of the top galleries.
PI10F.  RAMSAY WRIORT.
""Aw, mah good f*llawh! Cawn you
���undahstawned  what Ahm  saying���?"
"How do you expect him iot" interrupted the principal. "I'm right beside you,  aud  I  can't."
Dr. Ramsay Wright ranks high
ariumff the world's biologists aud it is
only his zeal f��ir making Toronto a
teaching university mid not a ie-
search one that tins prevented him
3>eoomiM more widely known in the
ranks of scientific pioneers.
He is a sui>erb lecturer snd hundreds of Students who might have
avoided them had they wished recall
���with delight h* lectures in elementary biology. With I'rof. .John McLennan of the physics department,
lie shares first place as a lerlurcr at
Toronto University, and perhaps in
Canada. His grace, his wit. nnd his
celebrated accent are ol imperishable
memory.
Pr. Rnmsav Wright s not finishing
Ms career. Indeed, one might say ht
is beginning again. Jint a little
white a^o he took up tlie study ol
the Persian language, in order that
he might read the Pufl poet.* in the
original. The idea may he n novel

Tom  Hood's Test.
The following storv is one which
Tom Hood was rath.r fond of relating!
He was once asked to contribute to
a new journal, not exactly gratuitously, but at a small advance upon notli-
ic#. He aceented tlie terms conditionally- that is to say. provided tlie principle con'd be properly carried out.
Accordingly he wrote to his butcher, baker and other tradesmen, in-
forming then) that it was necessary
for the sake of cheap literature and
the interest of the readirw public thai
they should in future furnish hun
���with their several commodities at a
trifling percentage above cost price.
lt will be sufficient to quote the an
swer of the  butcher:
Sir,���Respecting your note, cheap
literalcr be blowed 1 Butchers must
live as other pepel, and if so be you
or the readin' pub'.ick wants to have

Condemned to Slavery.
Two hundred years am, when men
ar.d women were condemned to de th

in S.-otl..id in i-omtnule tho death sen-
tenc* into perpetual servitude tn spe
tified masterB. In otlier words, the
���condemned person became a -lave. It
was further ordained that be should
wear a metal collar round his neck
recorJir-g his sentence and punishment. Tbo Society of Scottish Antiquaries owns on�� oi.these collnrs, ll^h-
<��1 cut of the Forth above Al!��a. It is
brass, with this inscription: "Alexander Stewart, found guilty of death for
-theft at Perth, 5th December* 1701,
ar.d gifted by the justiciars as a ner
petual servant to Sir John Areskeu
of Alva."
Racing /tome For th* Spoon.
There is a good story of "Choppy"
Warburton, one time famous in bug-
land as a runner. When Warburton
oame t> London snd ran the southern
contingent off their feet, ���someone ask
ed him how he came to take up run-
"Well," replied the Lancastrian, "I

we only had on*, spoon in t* house at

Gloom Reigned  When  Thackeray snd
Charlotte Bronte Mat.
Those do not always shine who
should, as many a chagrined host or
hostess has found out Amusing fn
retrospect. If quite otherwise at tbe
moment, muat buve been tbe occasion
wben Charlotte Bronte, "the little lady
from Torksblre of whom all England
was talking." appeared at the London
bouse of tbe author of "Vanity Fair."
fTbe story ls told in Lewis Melville's
"Tbe Thackeray Country."
Thackeray gar* a dinner party to
meet Charlotte Bronte In June, 1890,
and among tbe guests were tbe Car-
lyles, tbe Procters, tbe Brookfields, Mr.
Crowe, Mlss Eliot and Mlss Perry.
"It was a gloomy and silent evening," Lady Ritchie bas recorded. "Every one waited for tb* brilliant oonver-
sstlon Wbicb never began at all.
"Mlss Bronte returned to tb* sofa in
tb* study and murmured a low word
now and then to our governess, Mlss
Truelock. Tb* room looked wry dark;
tb* lamp tegna to smoke * little; tb*
conversation grew dimmer and mor*

of the evening.
" 'Do you like London, Mis* BronteT
sbe asked. Another silence, a pause;
tben Mlss Bronte answered very
gravely: i
" 'Yes-no.' I
"After Mlss Bronte bad left I was
surprised to see my father opening the
front door wltb his bat on. He put
his flnger to his lips, walked out Into
tbe darkness snd sbut the door quietly
behind blm. Overcome by tbe gloom
and constraint, be was running away
to his club."

TERROR OF A BOMB.
A Oramatlo Incident ef the Political
Unrest In Russia.
Here Is the story of a Russian anarchist outrage In the words of one
wbo wns nearly killed ln the explosion: While staving at Cannes H.
Jones Thaddeus, author of "Recollections of a Court Painter." met the
Grand Duchess Eleue of Russia, who
gave him an nccount of the then recent attempt upon the life of the czar.
Tbe czar was a few minutes late In
his arrival In tbe dining room, nnd fnr
this reason (he explosion was premature. After describing lhe event the
grand duchess told Mr. Thnddeus:
"When the echoes of the explosion
died nwny a demt silence succeeded,
which, united with the darkness pre-
rnlllug. so dense ns almost tn lie felt,
conduced to render our helpless |k��sI-
tlou still more painful and iiuemlnr-
able. We dared not move. There was
no eseitpe from the peril which surrounded us. Presently out of the darkness cnme the Wear, cnlm voice of die
csar, '..y children, let us pm}!' The
sound of bis voice, while reassuring
us ns to his safety so far. relieved the
awful strain on our nerves aud brought
comfort to our hearts.
"We sunk to our knees, sobbing.
How long we remained so I really ilo
not know. It seemed an eternity of
anguish before the guards appeared
with csndles, little expecting tu flnd
us alive. Some of ns were nearly demented when the welcome relief arrived, and our feelings were not calmed
as we then contemplated tbe awful
nature of tbe destruction we had escaped.
"A few feet In front of the csar was
��� black chasm where so short a tim*
before bad heen tbe brilliantly lit dining room tilled with servants. Not a
truce of It or of them remained."
Th* "Copper."
There are two theories ss to tb*
source of the term "cop" or "copper."
tbe fsmlllar nnme for an offlcer of the
law In the mouth of the rnlschlevmia
gamin. One derives It from the letters
C. O. I*.���<-entntl office police-but fhe
other and more usual explanation of
the word Is that It referred to the
eight point star mnde of copper snd
surrounded by a copper ring worn by
the Metropolitan polb-e of New York
In the late tlftles. "hls limine, n hiiw��
affair, which was fnsfened to the buttonhole by n chain about four Inches
long, wns later superseded hy a s|tecial
badge of smaller size.
THE GOLDFINCH.
Changes In Plumage Thst Are Pur-
cling to th* Novice.
Most every one In America is acquainted wltb tbe goldfinch, but many
people know tbe bird by the name of
lettuce bird on account or Its bright
yellow color. Goldfinch is s very appropriate name, as tbe bright yellow
of tbe male wben be Is In breeding
plumage ls like burnished gold. Tbe
female goldfinch Is -more modestly
dressed than ber mate. Tbe changes
in plumage of the male aro very Interesting and to tbe novice somewhat puz-
sling.
Until tbe student becomes acquainted
wltb tbe bird he may wonder wby be
sees no males during the winter. The
truth is at tbls season tbe flocks or supposed female goldfinches ure really ot
both sexes, Ibe male bird having assumed In the previous full, usually
by tbe end of October, a plumage closely resembling that of the female and
young bird of the year. The male retains this Inconspicuous dress until
late In lebruury, when uu* can notice
n gradual change tsklng place tu some
ot the birds.
Tbls renewal of feathers Is actively
continued through Slarcb and April,
nnd by May 1 our resplendent bird Is
with us nen In. Tbe song period with
the male goldfinch continues ns tout: as
be wears hls gold nnd blnck livery, tor
ll commences as early as tbe middle ot
Murt-li and ends late lu August.

to learn of his return.
He has been collecting a force of
men during the past month, and
these will materially Increase the In

Reeve J. W. Weart of Burnaby. and
associates have secured the necessary
capital and will erect a fifteen story |
building in Vancouver which will holt'
the  unique   distinction   of  being   thc '
tallest building In Vancouver���rnles
the city ordinance is so amended a (:
to permit    buildings    of    a    greater ;
height.
About a year ago a ciar.se was en-
tered  in  the Vancouver  charter    by j
whicli  no  building  In  the  city cculd
be  erected   above   ten   storeys.     The
reeve  had  taken  out  his  permit   tor
this   building   before  the     leg:slnt'on I
was enacted and it therefore ha3 no j
effect on  his undertaking.
The building will go up on t'li coi- !
ner of   Hastings  ami   Richard   .-itreet.!
will  be. of  steel frame  construction!
and will contain 420 of rices on the upper floors in addition to a large nu**-
ber in thq basement.    Five passenger
elevators, two of whieh will travel art
the express: rate or 600 feet per min
ute. will be,installed.   There will also be a large freight elevator serving all floors.
Construction on thc sky scraper
which Is' expected to cost between
$600,000 and $700,000. will be started
out'jin the spring. Mr. Weart !s acting
as managing director of the Investor's
Guarantee Corporation of Vancouver
in his dealings ln connection with
the building.
