and Russia.
Vieaaui, Jan. 21���"The net result o
the BrttlBh and Russian action ln Persia raiders a nation, which was making progress towards peace and o**-
tier And waa building up its finances
ior the establishment of u constitutional governmenL * land' of chaos
and anarchy, without prestige among
its own people, aaii ln addition has
annum tbe sacrlftoe of hundreds ef
innocent lives."
This statement was made yesterday
'by Mr. W. Morgan Shuster, tbe Araor-
inHii who was dismissed as treaeaner-
goneral of Persia recently, aad who
hns arrived here.
"Great Britain ond Russia, far from
being on a mora, solid basis of ftfend-
iihi|>, ure now face to face on opposite
sides of a disorganized territory.
"The Russian anl British legations
nre the real governing forces in Persia. They nre acting throngh a 'Directory of gev��m Persians in cder to
mold International rcs'ionslbiaty, but
morally they are respenslblc for the
destruction o'f Persian nationality
when lt give promise of accomplishing a stable constitutional government. Tbe seven men who are nominally governing Rersla are without chir
acter or reputation. They do not
command the slightest Tespe^t. rff their
countrymen and would not ��*lnt a dav
without the protection of the Russian
and British legations.
"Russian forces and 'Influences are
steadily advancing southward, and unless there Is a break in the present
trend of events, tbe realization of
Russia's dreim of a warm water nort
Ih a matter of only a Tew years. Great
Britain wITI then be confronted with
a living Russo-lndlan frontier problem.

Money Not   Tight���Is   Available   for
Leans on Good Termc���Deala In
Cheaper Property.
While lhe real estate business ls
still quiet In this ctty, Inquiries are
becoming more and more tre-iuent. A
steady sale of small lots ls also taking place, and some business property
looks Uke changing hands very shortly. At present, however, It would be
* mistake to call the mai ket active.
although promising would not be an
exaggerate 1 term, as there seems to
be a spirit of optimism abroad this
.year that should mean good time* la
abe near futon.
Am agreeable feature of the pree-
fttnanclal conditions Is that money Is
ia little looser now, than It has been
for some time. Collections are not
always quite as easy as they might
'he, but there is money available for
loan purposes ln several quartera.
This Is a satisfactory slate of afflrs
and it is under such condltloas that
activity may spring up.

On Lhe proposed Winnipeg schedule
the greatest Innovation is a measured
service.    An Individual line to a .private residence with tlie right of thirty
calls a month will cost |1.80 a month,
j while every extra call  will cost tivo
'cents.    The flat rate wlll.be $4.00   a
month.    One   hundred   cabs   will   be
made on a husiness Une .nieisun-d ser-
. vice for $4 a month, excess c ills again
j being  charged  at  two  cents  apiece,
'while the flat rates ceases to exist, it
ls believed that the   result   of doing
away wltb tbe flat rate will be to   relieve the lines of many  unnecessary
calls, which are made under that system.
The proposed Vancouver rates, thc
only .place whei o au aflranee has as
yet been announced by the B. C.
Telephone company, will be as follows. A flat rate of %?. a 'month will
be given to private residences. Business 'phones can be charged for
either-at a flat rate of J5 :i -month or
at a measured rate dl $4 a month
with the right to 100 outgoing cdlls.

Interesting Kind st Meeting
of Savants.
Vancou\er, Jan. 21.���A discovery o.
woiio-Mlde interest, and of especla:
interest to Brltisn Columbia, waa announced oy Mr. Charles itlil-Tout, o.
Abbotsiord, the ether day ln ttu>
couise of bts address u,.on "Neo
Uthic .Man in British Columbia;" glvea
before the annual convention of this
Archaeological institute of Ameiija
at Pittsburg. Mr. Hill-Tout, who in
the best known anthropologist in Canada, and one of the half-uozen moat
widely known on thc American continent, reported tbe discovery at Kant-
loops of the skeleton of a man whlcn.
if it is proved upon expert examination to be of the period which the
Under and the professor believes it
to be, puts back tbe neolithic period
in B. C. many milleniuuis farther than
any previous teaeaiches.
Mr.   Hill-Tout,  who  is  well  known
as a resident of Vancouver in tbe old
days   and,  ln  a   wider  field,   as   the
author of the -flrat o.  tbi Ame'lcan
volumes lu "The Native -.aC03 of ttt*
Km;.ire ' scries, when questioned by ��
newspaperman In  \ ancouver    ye^tef
day. had a n imber of in.eiesting particulars to   give   regaiding   the   discovery.    "Yes,"  he  admitted,  "if tlie
discovery proves���as I think It will���
to be genuine lt will have a very important bearin.; archaeological ly.    We
flnd on the American continent, as in
Kurope, that the same general result
has been reached ln our archaeological studies. As our investigations proceed  the neolithic  period is seen to
extend   fai ther  and   farther  Into  too
mists of prehistoric time until  it ie-
cedes quite beyond our ken.    Taking
that part of the American continent
. in  which  my  own  labors h ive  been
c.'irrk'l  on,  and  with  whose .archaeology I am most familiar,   this    discovery of a human skeleton in    the
ancient clay silts of Kairioops wouid
seem to extend the neo.itii.c pei tou t,
British   Columbia  back  many   milieu-
turns further than nny    previous'  ie
searches have carried life.''
{    Apked as to the manner In    which
the skeleton was brought to light. Mr.
| Hill-Tout said this was done hy the
action of a small stream, which "had
[cut a channel for Itself hi itihe cl^vs.
i "The bones were seen to ibe protruding  from  the  nice of    this    channe'.
about 12 feet down from the top." he
explained.   "They lay ln a disordered
condition,   apparently   jumble:l     together as if the skeleton had    been
rolled  by the action of water while
it still held together.   The <diatt<ict in
which the skeleton    was   found    Is
I known as the 'dry    belt,'    and    the
scarcity of   water   characteristic   of
this locality would thus account for
the remarkable preservation   of   the
bones, the dry clay acting as a hermetic cement coffin for them."
I    "But apart from any interest   thev
���may have along these lines, the   re
���mains ore of especial Interest on ac-
| count of their age to those Who, like
.myself, have made a study of prehls

,Biecovery   of   this   skeleton  extendi

Vancouver, Jan. 21.���Judgment,
fraught with possibly serious consequences to property owners In Soutn

the municipal council of court of revision subsequent tp May 7, 1892, ant
prior to the llrst meeting of the council ln tbe new municipal hall, has
been delivered by the isupreme ccurt
ot Canada ln the appeal brought before that tribunal by Mr. R. A. Anderson, wbo was originally plaintiff ln
the action of Anderson versus the
Municipality of South Vancouver,
Sarah Ralston and Mary C. Fleming;
ln wbich the plaintiff sought to est
aside a tax sale conducted by tao
municipality, at which certain property was sold to the other def-nd
Four of the flve judges of tbe highest legal tribunal of Canada tsieie
practically ln accoid on the view that
tbe sale was illegal, as it was held
without the municipality. This view
seems to have been held, to some extent at least, by tbe one dissenting
Judge, Mr. Justice Brodeur, who states
as a reason for opposing the sppeal
that "in declaring all tbe proceedings
of the council null and void, we would
simply create a Uate ot chaos ana
confusion and cause the min of many
Innocent i.eisons."
In delivering his note of reasons for
his decision, Mr. Justice Idingtjn
states ln part:
���    "On  May 7, In the year 1912, the
council then in,office held a meeting
within   the   municipality's   limits    ��j.
which a resolution was carried 'that
the next meeting be held at the office
of Shannon & McLaughlin on May 21,
at 1 p.m." This place was on Hastings
street, ln an adjoining municipality.
I    "it thus began a long course of iile-
| gal conduct.    Of that I  have not   a
-shadow of doubt.   The only doubt   I
have ln that regard ls whether Illegal
acts so done were nullities or   mere

tor whom no conJuct money was tu

side of the limit3 of the municipjlity.
for if it could go a mile beytnd, lt
could, go twenty or morel And when
the council is given power to nanu
the place, of which notice has to be
published, lt must be beld to be found
to name a place within said limits.
j "I know not how it operated in the
peculiar circumstance of this municipality, nor do I as a matter of law
here need to care. But I ara quite
euro that to sanction, as legal such a
proceeding as the sonstitution of
these courts by such methods, and
the giving of directions Involved ln
the councils fixing a place outside
their jurisdiction as the only one for
them to sit, would be fraught wjth
danger to our municipal systems,
which are nearly all. In their main
features, and especially in tbis regard,
after the same pattern.
- "To hold such a thing legal would
be ln the results Intolerable. To hold
it a mere irregularity would be to
open tbe door to reckless spirits, o*

mirable municipal systems depend on
all such men being sharply taught law
and order."
It ls understood that there will be
an appeal to the privy council.

"It ls as deep a stain upon the
national flag that Its folds should
wave  over  slum-bred   and   half-
starved children, over ill-paid, lilted and Ill-housed working men
and women as tf it were to wave
over defeat in a stricken field."
The foregoing is one of the salient
sentences of a speech made by Lloyd
George, Chancellor of the Exchequer,
before, a conference of ministers and
laymen at Cardiff on tbe sublet   of
current social problems a few days ago
and cabled to this side.
About 1,500 men and women attended, drawn from all the churches and
sections in Wales. The Bishop of
Llandaff presided, and prominent
churchmen and Nonconformists occupied seats on the pltaformT Among
them was the Rev. F. B. Meyer, who,
in response to a demand, spoke a few
words while the meeting awaited the
arrival of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, i j 'fe.: I
To Rouse Public.
Mr. Lloyd George, who was received with prolonged cheers, Bald the
problem was one which lt was very
difficult for a politician to discuss, because people were' suspicious of politicians, without the slightest justification. They were tljs simplest and most
common-sense persons In the world���
when one got to know them���but
whatever they Bald there, was always a
feeling as to what they meant. Were
they thinking about the insurance bill
or some other measure on which tbey
were more particularly engaged ?
"I do assure you," said the Chancellor,   "that   I  am  not  here    today
to advance the cause   of   any party.
I am not here to put ln a plea direct
or   indirect,   for  any    political     programme.   I am here rather to help to
rouse a spirit that will compel every
party. In Its tuin to deal with these social evils, and that seems to me to be
, the sphere of influence of the church-
,es���not to support particular parties,
I not to advocate  particular measures
| of reform, but to create an atmosphere
in  which  lt  will  be  impossible    for
anybooy   to   remain   a  ruler  of    the
realm unless he deals with these social problems.
"Our foreign policy ls outside party
Influence, because it Involves our national honor.   So do slums, go do pub-
! lie houses.    After all, it Is as deep a
i stain upon the national flag that its
, folds should wave over slum-bred and
| half-starved children; over ill-paid, 111-
fed,    ill-housed     working    men   and
j women, as  If  it  were to wave over

I    "The first thing we have got to dD
is to create a temper, a spirit, and at-
j mosphere that will compel men of ali
I parties  to deal  with  these  problems
I whichever party is in power for the
j time being.
|    "Poverty," he proceeded, "Is not the
result of Providence,    which provides
abundance.      Poverty,    misery    and
wretchedness do   not exist in the land
because the land is sterile and   bare,
and does not provide enough for all.
Tbere are mlllons of men, women and
children In this, the richest country ln
the world,  who, through no fault of
their own, go through life sodden ln
poverty,    wretchedness and   despair.
I The area of poverty fluctuates without
. any fault of the people who endure lt.
I    "My other proposition Ib this:  that
tbere are multitudes who live a life
of wretchedness, misery and despair,
partly through their own fault,    but
I largely through the fault of their sur-
! roundlngs.    You cannot deal  with  a
problem  of  this  magnitude  by  mere
spasmodic appeals   to   the charity or
the benevolent.  (Hear, hear.)   That's
hopelessly  inadequate as    a remedy.
. You might as well try to    run    the
| army and  navy    by   voluntary    subscriptions.     (Laughter).    If you    depended for the defence of our shores
upon mere eloquent appeals to the pa-
triotism and the sympathy and    the
i humanity of the people you could not
build or maintain a navy of Chinese
junks in this country,
"in the same  way you cannot get
' rid of poverty and wretchedness and
Ibad housing by mere appeals of that
I character.   Tho community, as a com
iinuiiity, will have to deol  with them
with   the   whole     of       their    might,
i (Cheers.)    It is the community    that
alone can command the resources   to
drain tills morass of wretchedness ho
i as to convert it into a verdant and fertile plain.  (Cheers.)
Churches  Standard.
'What  is  the responsibility of    tho
churches here?    The responsibility of
the churches is this:  the churches of
Chi 1st in this land guide, control and
| direct the consciences of the community.    They establish the moral standards which fix the Ideals of the people.
They direct affairs not merely in the
! senate  and   in   the  council   chamber,
hut in the shop and the factory and in
all  the  affairs  of  life.    No  interest,
however powerful it may be, can long
withstand the resolute united onnosi-
tion of the churches.    Public opinion
in this land invariably responds    to
the call of the united churches.     As
! their power ls  great,  so is their re-
' sponslhility."
Poverty Greater Now.
Continuing. Mr. Lloyd Georgo said
he did not agree with the view that
the church was concerned solely with
Spiritual things; Those, who took
that view repudiated the precept and
doctrines' of the greatest Disciple,
whose first act cn founding a church
was in establish a fund for tho care
of Ihe i oor���the first Poor-law 7Uir-
tli-ivs ever established, /nd he re-
membcred   the   trouble   which  befell
had. There was a more severe economic bondage Mr labor. Today there
was not always guaranteed susten-
ance or security���a condition of things
foreign to the barbaric darker ages.
Wbat was the function of tho
church in reference to social evils?
The function of the church was not to
engage ln party brawls���it was not to
urge, to advocate any specific measures. It was to create an atmosphere
ln which the rulers of this country,
whether in the legislature or in the
municipalities, not only can engage
In reforming theae dire evils but ln
which It wlll be impossible for them
not to do so. How? First, by rousing
national conscience to a knowledge of
thf existence of these evils, and afterwards to a sense of Its responsibility
for dealing with them. And the aecoad
way Is by inculcating the necessary
spirit of self sacrifice, without which
tt ia impossible for any nation to deal
with gigantic problems of this kind.
The churches must insist on the
truth being known and the truth being told about these social wrongs.
South Wales, he proceeded, was naturally one of the wealthiest parts ln the
world, yet they had in certain districts, housing conditions which were
a disgrace to civilization. In some
cases they were such that common
decency  was  scarcely  possible.    He

he does. Tbe task Is a great, a colossal one. It ls a taajt our Master
came here for���to lift the neely from
the mire and the poor from tbe dunghill, and lt ls the Christian churches
alone that can accomplish it.
"If half the Increased amount spent
annually In preparation for war was
dovoted to the clearing out of slums,
there was no statesman who could not
do it with that sum. The church cannot stand by with folded arms while
millions are in despair. The church
certainly cannot Bay, 'Am I my brother's keeper?' I wonder what would

the statement that the Winnipeg

so all the critics have evidently not

The Free PresB, In an exhaustive article states that "there has betn - decided advance ln the price since the
merger was formed; and that the

on Imported cement has been raised
from 40 cents a barrel ln 1896 to 61

the merger is protected more fully

that the duty ls really their source

My Dear Elsa���Hare yon tried tbe i
bobby bour? 1 bare, and It's the most j
wonderful restorative extant But tbe i
name, dear. Is Just a designation for
the oldest need of men and women���
the need of a definite dally recreation.
It means in my case settling down
luxuriously for sixty golden minutes
to do Just what I Uke. Now, Isn't
this tbe acme of bliss? During these
minutes I dismiss from my counclous-
ueaH the many wsys conscience and
my friends suggest for employing tbe
time more profitably. Profitably: As
tf anything you could do wltb brains
or fingers could be more truly profitable than the brief Interval of reading
or the turning out of mediocre works
of art or a useless bit of fancy work,
which keeps the younger workers
from growing middle aged and tbe
middle aged from becoming mere machines for producing so muc-b money
er money's worth dally.
The idea of tbe bobby boar Is to do
what you like, ho ions as you like It.
ond uot to strain yourself to do something which you fancy is good for you.
The bobby hour worked ont on these
lints wlll do you a world of good���a
reward which cannot be estimated, but
which will ulTect your whole life for
the better tn the renewed sense of
youth nnd hopefulness which It will
lufuse Into your working hours' self.
Now.  Elsa, If you  try  this scheme
Iei   nobody   and   nothing  rob  you  of
this hour's pleasure by any plausible
arguments as to wasted time or u*e-
lesH results.   Get up a little earlier If j
you   cannot   squeeze   In   your   bobby
bour otherwise,    lf early rising tine* \
not agree with you (and I know what I

some of your dally   work.    And  the j
more difficult you find It to ninke time i
for It and tbe harder to keep bold of *
as.ilnst tbe tnrusb  of  work   lying in
fruit for it the more certain Is'it that
this hour of idleness will be tbe most
valuable of the day.    To change the
subject,   I   reckon   you   have   heard

Mr. Arthur Hawkes Loom; Up Larger
Now Than Ever Before.
Mr. Arthur Hawkes, who has been
appointed by the Dominion Government to act as Special Commissioner
for lhe Department of Immigration,
has had quite a vai'cgated career. Of
course, everybody knows Mr. Hawkes
is "British-born." He was born in the
English oountr of Kent���where the
hops grow���a fact which may or may
not be significant in connection with
his qualities as a. rapid riser.
We have been told that Mr. Hawkes
passed through quite a romantic period, when as a youth he pursued fortune with hope and daring in our
great new Wes',, and conceived there
the needs and responsibilities of our
splendid British-born immigrants in
that land of promise, it was something like that. Then Mr. Hawkes
went back to England and worked as
a newspaperman in Manchester ��nd
London; traveled a good deal, and ac.
quired experience,' confidence, and
avoirdupois, in 1904 he returned to
Caneda, acted for a while as managing editor of The World, then edited
The Monetary Tim?s, and in 1907 became publicity ag?nt for the Cana-.
dian Northern Railway.
It was in December of last year that
the notable controversy ar^se between
Mr. Hawkes and Mr. J. Castell Hopkins at the Empire Club. The way
these patriots of widely different temperaments lambasted each other was
a edition. At least Mr. Hawkes' share
uf the lambasting was something to
remember. The row arose because
Bishop DuMoulin of Niagara; speaking to the Club, refemd to the British
Suffragettes a* vix'ns, and remarked.
so   Mr. Hawkes   averred,   that   they
light to be bitten by rats. Mr.
Hawke rushed to the defence pf the
vote-hunting ladies with characteris-
tic vigor.- The rumpus made good
r ;.<iing in the newspapers. One pa-
rier. we are told, had the following
really excellent heading in type one
iiay: "Mr. 'Awk"= nn<l Mr. 'Ookins."
Tut when Mr. Hopkins' dignity and
Vir. Hawkes' aggr��88iV��hfSl were fully considered, second thoughts prevailed end th? hsading was changed
to an crdinary, common-place one.
Mr. H'.wkes it not only aggressive
but methodically to. When he left
llie Canadian Northern last winter
and started his pai>pr. the British
M--Ai' cf Canada, everybody who kn_>w
;!l:: sr.id���or ratlic-r, thought���"Now
Hawke? is going into politics, and
he's going to do it by rounding up
the 'Sri tish-born'." Sura enough, the.
gu"ss was a good one. Mr. Hawke5
didn't get himself elected to Pari'a-
ment, a�� many ��upT��o*ed hn would,
but in the ree:nt Federal campaign
ir> suppli.-d a mass of literature in
the Conservative interests, many of
the r.rticies appearing under the now
fimous pen name, "John V. Borne."
And now Mr. Hawkes has his r ward
in the form of a roving commission
to look  after our  immigration.
Mr. Arthur Hawkes personally is a
big,, jovial, alwavs aggressive chap
who can make either frineds or ene-
inii-s with eas?. And he makes a lot
ci friends. He ls Comparatively

With the rugby season clos?d and
the Parliamentary season at Ottawa
about b'gun, it is* int resting to recall
that the new House will be without
two members, who were notabla exponents of the gridiron game in their
youthful dav?. Mr. Maitland S. McCarthy, of Calgary, and Mr. Hal Mc-
Giverh. of Ottawa, who have retired
[rom F��<j:ral politics, are probably
UK* two best athletss who ever sat in
the  House  of Compters.,
Mr. McCarthy, who" is i oousin of
Mr. Leijhton McCarthy, K.C, of To-
ronto, was born in OrangeviUe, and,
that being the case, he. of course,
played lacrosse as a boy. He was
also a bas?ball pitcher when Orange-
vilie hftd a crack amateur team.
When he went to Trinity College
School he learned cricket and became
captain of the school team. He can
still play the English national game.
A couple of years ago Calgary was
playing Edmonton, the team was a
man short, snd at the last minute
Mas was asked to fall in. He was
looked unon as fl has-bepn. and was
cent to the bat last, but he hit out
the very tidy scor? of 37.
Mr. McGivern played Rugby both
with and against Mr. McCarthy in
the nineties, while as a cricketer he
stood in the front rank, playing on
s.'veral occasions for Canada against
the United States in the regular in-
ternational   matches.
Benwell'i Friend.
Th-rc died in England the other
dav a prominent churchman, Canon
Pelly. He was ths father of the Rev.
Douglas Raymond Pelly, who is now
vicar of Buckley. Chester, snd who
some .years ago wp.s connected with
perhaps the most famous criminal
-ase in the annuls of Ontario. Before
\e entered the Church, he and voung
B��nwell were lured to Can%i> by
Reginald Birchsll, an acquaintance o!
good fsmi'v snd education, on the
pretext that they were to learn farn*->
ing on an estate h" professed to own
n Ontario. Benwell, it will of course
be remembered, was taken to a swamp
and shot. Pelly escaped by ehanc*-
and was nretty well forgotten afterwards. It is interesting to recall
that he is now n quiet country clergymen, whose neighbors probably know
little of his Canadian adventure.
Nswspaper Chronology.
The first newspaper in Canada was
The Ha'.ilax Gaictte.
The second newspaper in Canada
was The Quebec Gasette, appearing
in .17W.
The newspaper business started to
boom after these two papers began
to increase circulation.
In 1778, The Montreal Gazette of
today was born.
The famous Upper Canada Gatette
���leetrifled Niagara in 1793.
But our century and a half of Cans-
liau journalism all originated in
Halifax, the birth place of the flr"t

|Ths Whit��.M*����*tl Boyish Celt Who
Preachss le Great Crowds Every
Sunday In thc City Temple, London, Has Raised an Outcry From
the Orthodox Because of Hi* New
Theology Movement.
The present visit of Rev. R. J.
Campbell of the City Temple, London,
to eastern Canada is enabling Canadians to hear one of the most remarkable preaohers of our age, writes W. T.
Allison in The Saturday Globe. During the last decade Mr. Campbell has
become the leader of a new school of
theological thought in the old land;
he has been the centre of n controversy which was peculiarly interesting I
because it was a battle between advocates of Biblical criticism and one
of their own number, who, in their
opinion, went too far along the path
of radicalism. When that dispute was
at its height Mr. Campbell became
known as the leader of the New
Theology movement.
I had the pleasure of hearing Mr.
Campbell prench in thc Ci:y Temple
on a vry hot July Sunday last summer. Iu spite of the heat the church
wns crowded. It was necessary even
for an early-ei.mcr to stand in the
aisle fur a long time until the regular
members had arrived. If some of th"
m.'mb'Ts were ;.b<ent, and you happened to be far.enough to the front,
y "i wer1 given a scat; if not, you
were obliged to stand.
Mr. CamplHl is not a rugged, fighting person; he is not very tall, and
he is ouite slight. To look at him
no one would ever dream that he had
f light manfully in theological wars.

The world was full of good words
about books, the beatitude of reading, the Inestimable value ot books;
but they must rt'meniber that all the
beautiful descriptions were by
authors. (Laughter.) It made one a
little suspicious��� it was like a brewer recommending beer, or a distiller
some particular blend.
He recalled an instance of a book
being prefaced by a collection ot fln��
things said about books, but the stuffing was knocked out of it by |h��
her.ding, "Opinions of Author^."
(Laughter.) This society taught tliem
how lo read to improve their minds.
All great writers were not great renders. Some of the greatest author*
were the least bookish ��� Jo'in Bu t*
yan, Ir.ank Walton, George Borrow,
and even Shakespeare.
It was a mistake to think that thn
pursuit of a single subject led to narrow-mindedness, because the more a
subject was pursued the more was it
found to be allied to some other subject, such as law and history. Mathematics, he was fold, was identical
with poetry. (Laughter.) Science was
B fertile field for the loftiest kind ot
imagination; the more a man pursued
science the more poetic and imaginative  he  became.
He disagreed with each side reading its own side only. "Read both
sides," he exclaimed, "and, for Heaven's sake, if you cannot do thut, read
the other side."

African Wilds. ' "**���
Adventures of the most perilous description have been the lot of Lieut.
Paul Grata, the German who is endeavoring to cross Africa by the
Zambesi River, Lske Bangweolo, and
the Congo River. M. Octave Friere,
a French cinematograph operator, who
was the only other white member of
the expedition, lost his life in a terrible encounter with wild buffaloes.
The tragedy happened on Sept. 9, but
the details have only just reached
The death of M. Friere occurred
just when the expedition was at Lake
Bangweolo. They had hardly reached the spot when they saw three gigantic wild buffaloes. With the almost automatic precision of the adventurer in savage lands the two un-
.slung their rifles and fired. Unfor
tunately the beaais were only wounded, and, unaware of their danger,
the hunters followed them As they
started and wheeled ofl in rapid
flight. But suddenly���so suddenly
that the pursuers had no time to escape���the quarry turned aud charged.
Against this furious onslaught the
men were practically defenceless.
They struggled fiercely, but the infuriated beasts caught and tossed
and crushed them, inflicting terrible
injuries. Lieut. Gratz had his jaws
broken, and was badly crushed, narrowly escaping d-ath. His colleague
was knocked down, tossed snd gored,
and only survived his injuries a
few hours, dying in sight of success.

Tiie most remiirkiible feature of the

is the widening breach in traditional

I wliich   i.s  abroad   is  now  giving  fre��
I play   to   the   desire   for   ostentatious

The career of Mr. Campbell seem* ,
to me to have all the marks of one '
who has been raised up to be a foun-
tniu of life to the men of this generation. His personal history is ex
tremrly interesting. As his name implies, he is of Celtic stock, and has
inherited the mysticism and poetry
and spiritual fervor of the son of the
Gael. His father was a Methodist
preacher in London, but he was
brought up in the household of a
Presbyterian elder in Ireland. Strange
to relate, he was subsequently con
firmed iu the Church of England, and.
after teaching school for some years
went to Oxford, with the intention ot
taking Anglican orders. His historical studies al Oxford and his revolt
against the attitude of the Anglican
Church towards the Nonconformists
led to. his determination to enter the
Congregationalist ministry. While ��t
OxfcrJ he took high honors, and
when he went to Brigaton to itcqme
pastor of a broken-down church many
of his associates predicted a successful career. But he exceeded the wildest expectations. His combination ol
spirituality and intellectual power
quickly filled the church, so that
the congregation had to move to a
lafge edifice which had been closed
gincfe, Paxton Hood's time. Nearly
nine years have passed since Mr.
Campbell' was translated to the City
Temple to succeed Dr. Parker. In
these years he has steadily gained
in reputation, sp that when tourists
from all parts of -th* world visit
London they go to hear Campbell as
they used to go to hear Spurgeon.
To-day he stands as a great world
preacher. Every sermon that he
preaches is published, and goes into
the far places of the earth.

"I'm afraid I bave made extra work

Harry Clifton reassured blm. snd,
soon the two became deeply Interested
In a small model of a new Invention

turned tbe model over.

Presently Mrs. Clifton appeared, a

Ever since Stuart dsys the Commons hsve had their own chaplain

! It is a noticeable fact that, how-

t%p a member who is present at prayers is entitled to retain tbe place he
then ocenpies Sasinst all comers until the House rises. Thus, if a legislator is anxious .to listen to or take
part Li an Important debate, he can
only make sure of a seat by claiming
it at prayer-time.
To make quite sure of the seat he
has thus secured he takes from a boa
on the table a small card bearing the
words "At prsyers"; he writes hia
name on it, and places it in a slot
provided for the purpose st the back
of his seat. This done, his seat, for
the rest of the day, is as inviolable
as the crown itself. He csn leave the
House when he pleases and for any
length of time; others may occupy
his seat during his absenee; but the
moment he returns the interloper
must vacate it in his favor.

Dsunkardt' Patron Saint.
What has come to be known as St.
Martin's Summer consist] of a few
I lovely days about the second week of
i November. We hear a great deal
about 8t. Luke's Summer; but St.
Martin's Summer and his name-day.
November 11, suffer neglect���possibly
because the saint was French, and
not English.
Perhaps, too, the knowledr,. that he
is the patron saint of drunkards has
not added to his reputation. That office came to him by accident. The
reason he had thus doubtful honor
thrust upon him after his death was
rsther curious. The Vinalia. or Feast
of Bp.cchus, was always celebrated
on November 11. La'er. when the
Christians decided to merge Bacchus
into Rt. Martin, the reputation of the
former was unfortunately handed on
to the saint, although quite unmerited
by him.
Before his conversion he was a military tribune, stationed at Amiens.
When one tlay, so lhe story goes, in
midwinter, at the city gate of Amiens
a miserable beggar appealed to him
for help, the soldier drew his sword,
and, dividing his cloak, gave half of
it to the wretched beggar. At night,
so it is said, Christ in person appeared io the astonished soldier, clsd in
tbe very cloak he had divided with the
beggar a few hours before.
Another legend is that the Saint,
having been annoyed by the behavior of one of the geese in bis poultry-
yard, ordered it to be stein and served up Ior dinner. He died immediately sfter partaking of it, and the anniversary has ever since been observed
in France by the eating of goose on
that day, November 11.
Morris' Drssm Poem.
Coleridge   was  not  the  only  great
ret who sometimes dreamt in song,
was talking, says a correspondent,
to William Morris about Coleridge
and his wonderful dream fragment.
Morris was eloquent in its praise,
and I inquired of him if he, too,
, ever wrote poems in his sleep. Morris
sat down promptly in a seat���we were
walking in his big garden at the
back of Kelmscott House���and broke
into one of his big laughs. "Oh,
yes," he said. "One night I had been
reading 'Kubla Khan' again and wishing that I could dream anything hall
as fine. And I did dream a poem that
moved me to actual tears by iU beauty." "And did you remembar it when
you woke up?" I asked. " Yes," said
Morris grimly, "one Une. And the
line ran:
The moonlight slept on a treacle sea.
"And then I ceased to weep," he
added, "and haven't wished to dream
poems again."���London Standard.
