London, Feb. 11.���John Strange
Winter, the writer of "Booties' Babf"
and more than a hundred other
novels, left when Bhe died recently
only a little more than $2500. lt Is
true that during the thirty years thut
she was writing continuously she
earned some $200,000, and at one time
her Income was well over $15,000 a
year. But Iii 1891 she and her husband, A. E. V. Stannard, started a
weekly magazine tlrst called Golden
.Gates ahd afterward Winter's Weekly.
They kept it going for four years* *st
a heavy loss, and ^Jvst as lt was beginning to turn the corner Mr. Stan-
nard's health broke down. They
sold the magazine to a lady for a
mere song and she discontinued !t
alter a few weeks.
After this John Strange Winter's
sales fell off, but by 1891, the middle
of her career, over 2,000,000 copies of
her books had been sold.
Out of "Booties' Baby," her flrst
great success, whicb was published at
a shilling ln 1884, she made $1500
from the sale of 150,000 copies, her
Royalty betng one cent a copy.
She afterward got another $650
from the' sixpence edition, her royalty
being thirty shillings a thousand
copies. So that from the sale of 250,-
000 copies of "Booties' Baby" she
made only $2150.
From the dramatised version of the
story of Hugh J. Moss, which ran for
122 nights at the old Globe Theatre in
1888 and afterward for flve years In
the provinces, she got more than her
total rcelpts from the book, her share
of the play being 25 per cent. In
connection with "Booties' Baby" it
may be recalled that Ruskin declared
the book gave the finest picture ever
written of the British soldier, and it
Is recorded that he was very disappointed to flnd the writer was a woman.
After "Booties' Baby" John Strange
Winter always got a royalty of two
pence in the shilling. Among the most
successful of her 103 novels after this
were "Houpla," published in 1884, of
which more than 100,000 copies were
sold, making a profit for her of $4500;
"Mrs. Bob." "Dinna Forget" and "Har-
vest," published in 1889, made $2500;
"Goodbye,' in 1981, made $3000; "Only
Human," in 1892, made $5000, her biggest figure; "A Blameless Woman," in
1894, made $3750, and "A Name to
Conjure with," in 1900, made $2250.
This last she always considered her
best book, and It was highly praised
in the press.

���    For Their Lives While Learning.
Nowhere in the world has such progress been made in the way ol open-
air schools as in the big and little
cities of England. What Leicester is
doing in this direction is novel aud
extraordinary. j
Leicester is one of the most ancient
cities,of Great Britain. Centuries ago
it was one of Juliui Caeser's fortified
camps; to-day it has a population of
about 250,000, and is one ot the
manufacturing centre of the British
midlands. . In,the huge mills where
te*t*jfs are" manufactured tens ol
thousands of men. women and children toil day after day. Tuberculosis
has run riot among .tt)eni."��*Wiere is
little fresh air in this crowded, smoky
town, and so the Municipal Kducatiou
-Committee decided recently to try the
experiment of sending to the seaside
a number of the children who were
disposed toward tuberculosis.'
The village of Mablethorpe, on the
coast of the North Sea, .was selected
as the healthiest possible location for
the experiment. It is about 100 miles
from. Leicester, but the distance made
no difference. An open-air school wa*
inaugurated there with 30 boys and 20
girls, all of whom are described a*
pre-tubercular; On their arrival they
were housed in a block building close
to the ocean. Then the experiment of
teaching them in the open air wai
begun. This was less than three
months ago, but already the sea air
has brought back the roses to the
cheeks of these delicate children. It is
expected this open-air school will be
continued all through the winter, for
the climate along that part of the
coast of the Norlh Sea is comparatively mild.
These English children, who are
getting a chance for their lives, study
and p'.ay under various novel conditions which could be duplicated easily
by any big city. Their class room is
always under the open sky. Sometimes the pupils sit in an old boat
half imbedded in the sand. The teach-
ed perohes in the bow and listens to
their recitations.
When the winds are blowing harshly the classes seek Shelter on tb->
slopes of the sand dunes that ,look
out upon the sea. A black l>oard is
set up and work goes on just as it
would indoors.
In between lessons there is a "recess." This playtime is every half t*r
three-quarters of an hour, and is
taken up with calisthejiic exercises
calculated to give these delicate children the health and strength that wa.-

Criminal Court Msthoda Thera Utterly
Diffsrsrrt From Oura.
Criminal court trials In Italv are conducted under a very simple system,
though utterly different from the system whicb governs procedure In American or English courts, says nn exchange.
Tbe trlnl takes place before three
Judges nud a jury, to which nre ndded
u certain number of extra Jurors, who
are sworn nnd are present ln court to
hear the testimony and are held ready
to take tbe place ln tbe jury box of
any Juror who may ln the course ot
the trial be Incapacitated from further
service. The depositions df all tbe
witnesses have been taken ln writing
and signed before the trial .begins.
Ench ot the judges has a copy of these
before blm. The prosecutor nnd tho
counsel for tho accused furnish to tbo
court a list of tbe witnesses tbey desire culled, and these are all summoned by tbe court, which has power to
punish nonattendnnce.
The flrst thing thnt happens when
the trial begins Is tbe questioning ot
the nccused by the presiding justice,
in Itnly. ns In most oi continental En-
rope, ii man accused of 11 crime ls considered by tbe law to be the very best
witness to tils own guilt or Innocence.
In England nnd America tbe accused
need uot testify unless he chooses. In
Italy be ls the first and most Important witness.
The accused Is allowed the widest
scope In defending himself, fle bus
n right to tell his own story In bis
own way. to offer nnythlng he can In
the way of Justification or palliation.
Even hearsay evidence Is ndmlsslble.
The judge bns absolute discretion us
to what testimony niuy be received
nud what excluded, nnd any Judge
who exercised this discretion unfairly
Would bean object of execration. Bias
on the pnrt of one Judgf Is possible,
but there are tfl ways the other two
Judges on the bench w|tli him. und
they are a perfect' check ugiilnst unfairness.
When the accused has given Ills testimony he ts confrouted personally
"with bis accuser. The licenser is necessarily tbe prlnelpnl witness against
'him. Strictly speaking, the prisoner
has no right to Interrupt Ills nceuser
while the latter Is telling bis story,
but In practice the Judges permit It.
and the confrontation sometimes becomes n three cornered debute between
accuser, licensed nnd judge, the latter
giving the nccused the widest leeway
to demonstrate his Innocence.���Case

taught the bird to do was to hold a

owner, lit n cigar.    It  went through
this trying performance without flinch,

The most amusing trick of all. however, was to see this clever little rooster answering his master's imitation
of a rival bird crowing. This he

Mr. Louis Carre, in England, has
invented a process for the artificial
production ol wood from straw or

the wood only ln the manufacture nf

to be cheaper than-.nutural wottf. The
straw is pressed through crushing

Afterward, supplied witli an adhesive,
the stripe, enclosed on top and bot-.

where they are subjected to nresnure

��� The great convention of the Nation
al' -Education   association,  in  session
July 11, 1902, at Minneapolis,, Minn.,
unanimously adopted the following ae
part of their declaration of principles:
"It is apparent that familiarity with
the English Bable as a masterpiece ot
literature is rapidly decrease iwwn;
the pupils ln our schools. This is the
direct resiilt of a conception which regards the Bible as a theological book
merely, and thereby leads to its exclusion from ' the schools of som*
states as a subject of reading and
atudy. We hope for such a change
of public sentiment ln thla regard as
will permit and encourage the reading
and atudy or the Engllah Bible as a
Hterary work of tbe highest and pur
est type, side by side with the poetry
and prose which lt has Inspired and
in^large part formed. .
"We do not urgo this in the interest
of sectarian instruction of any kind,
-but that this great book may ever ba
the teacher's aid in the interpretation
of history, of literature, law and life���
an unrivalled agency ln the development of true citizenship, as well as in
the formation of pure literary style."
The New South Wales (Australian)
system of. Bible instruction in state
schools described as the, New South
Wales act, clauses 7, 1< and 18, provides as follows:
7. In all schools under this act thc
teaching shall be strictly non-sectarian, but the words "secular instruc
tion" shall be held to include general
religious teachings as distinguished
from dogmatical or polemical theology
Under this clause the school teacher
In school hours gives selected j Bible
lessons from a book provided for the
purpose, but is not allowed to give
sectarian teaching.
17. Any minister of religion is entitled in school hours on days to be
arranged with the school committer
to give children of his 0 wn denomination, separated from others, an hour's
religious instruction.
18. Any parent may withdraw Jiis
children  from <U1  religious teaching,

A referendum on Bible ln schools is

proposal that a referendum on the
question of Blblo reading in the state

Pursuit ot Sc'mnce Makes Min Pestle

(J Addressing the National ' Rome
Reading Union at. their annual meeting 'at Caxton 'Hall, Westminster.
England, the other day, Mr. Birrell
said-they must remember that they
wer' a society ol readers, not authors.
J that they belonged to the class who
had to pay for everything, lhe other
people. Were the producers. The consumers ultimately had to pay (or
Authors wer; n dangerous class, a
class to be-a little cautious about.
'The world was lull ol good* words
about books, the beatitude of reading, the inestimable value ol books;'
but they must remember that all the
beautiful descriptions were hy
authors, (Laughter.) It made one a
little suspicious���it was like a brew-
-er recommending beer, .or a distiller
aome particular blend.
He recalled an instance nf a book
being prefaced by a collection ol fin'?
thing*, said about books, but the stuffing wag knocked out of it by the
heading, "Opinions ol . Authors,."
(Laughter.) This society taught them
how to read-to ihaprove their roiful*.
AU great writers were not great readers. Some ol the greatest, authors
were the least bookish ��� John Hm-
yan, Isaak Walton, George Borrow,
and even Shakespeare.
I', was a mistake to think that the
pursuit ol 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 told, was identical
with poetry. (Laughter.) Science wa*
a fertile field for the loftiest kind ol
imagination; the mor�� a man pursued
science the more poetic and imaginative  he  became.
He disagreed with each *ide reading its own side only. "Read both
sides," he exclaimed, "and, for Heaven's sake, il you cannot do that, read
the other  side."

Cushions at Weddings.
The most..r/?markable feature of the
wjnter matrimonial season in London
ts the widening breach In traditional
practice ��t smart weddings. At one
time a bride would no more dream of
introducing nny innovation in the
mr.rrir.ge arrangement than of revis-
ihg the prayer book service to suit
her fancy. Rut the spirit of'change
which is abroad is now giving free
play, to thu desire for ostentatious
no fitly.
TYi'e latest illustration ol this is the
appearance of cushion bearers at the
.wedding of Mrs. Morton-Wood to VA*
ward Nettlefold. 5th Dragoon Guard*.
The   bride,   who   is   a   widow,   gaily
broke thp unwritten law that decree*
that when a widow  is married again
she   shall   be   unattended   by   linden-
maids or pages, and shall only he accompanied to the  altar by  a matron
of honor and whoever is to give  her
away. Throwing tradition to the winds.
Mrs. Morton-wood arranged that she
should be attendef   by two smart  Utile  pages  carrying  white  satin  rush-
lions,   embroidered   with   the   initial*
|of the  bride  and  bridegroom,  in  silver.   The, cushions were used  by  the
happy   eovj^le   to   kneel  upon  Juring
the ceremony.   ���

a winner in bgth football encounters,
'lhe opposingltieiama were of tbi'very
best class, the one being chapions ot

unbeaten record In the Amateur coc-
cer league. But the Rovers put lt over
the Celtics to the tune or 2 to 1, while
the Amateura held the upper hand
over the Cedar Cottage represent*-
. lives, and finished up with one goal to
their opponents' nothing.
Both teams had to be oontent with

victories, which put the one team in

other well ln the running for league
honors, should prove a stimulus to

was one of the hardest fought In the
league so far. Both teams were out

finish Westminster had that little bit
tho best of lt that means victory ln
tbe end. The play on the muddy
ground was as fast as possible, and
several of the players out up some
spectacular football. The solitary
goal was headed Into the net by Chlel'

One   satisfactory   feature   of   the
match waa the playing of Birchfleld ln
goal.    Sampher,  the  old   goaltender,
was a difficult man to replace, but the
new man put up a fine grime and It
looks  as  If  the   Amateurs   will    not
notice their loss now in the way that
had been expected.    Ferguson, Smith
nnd Caydzlen    all    starred    for   the
homesters, and McAllister put ��p his
usnal sterling game. The result of the
match  is to put  Westminster fourth
In the league with Coquitlam, V. A. C.
and Cedar Cottage above them. Next
Saturday the loca lmen will play the

It was a hard, fast, game, la which
the-Rovers beat the champion Celtics,
and the home team put up a fine exhibition of football. All through the
second half, particularly, the play
was very level, but the Westralnste-
team might have scored two or three
times In the flrst half.
Celtics were the first to net tha
ball, sooting ofl a penalty kick, The
liovei-K, nothing disheartened, . came
is trait ht ink with a acerb sti thc^W
own, Fraser taking tho ball neatly off
a rebound from the goalkeeper, and
slipping it past blm -with precision.
Tbe teams changed over with a goal
apiece, and It was not till late ln the
second half, after a lot of hard play
in which aome severe knocks vl.fite '
given, that Fraser scored a second
goal from a centre by Cairnduff. This
settled the Question, and soon afterwards Tlm Mahoney blew his whistle
for time..
Everybody agreed In praising the
fine game put up by Bruce tor the
Rovers at centre half, but the team
had not a bad man ln It* The Rovers
are now lo the final, and on March 2
they wilt have to play the Thiatles
for the cup. In the league each team
has beaten the other, but tf the
Rovers can take the fleld with Saturday's team there should be no doubt
that the cup will come to New Westminster for the rest of the year.
Celtics were playing on Saturday
without Moffat, and McCormick, their
usual goalkeeper, and tcok the field
as follows: Gow, McDougall, Ander-
Bon, Robertson, Thorpe, McKenzie,
Arnold, Moffat, Jardine, McLean and
Joliffe. For the Rovers there played,
Sampher. Lyons, , McMillan, Lewis,
Bruce, Melklejohn, Hayes, Cairnduff,

want them yet.    At present he's delivering weekly lectures   on   matrlm
ony, on buying furniture, on cooklns, -,,
on saving money, on rearing children i j
and on courting.    Here are'some of
Father Dalton's views on those   subjects:

London, Feb. 11.���The story of a

11. Walliis, ot Moore, Newcastle, Staffordshire, as follows:
"At a certain creamery ln this district a large number of pigs are kept,

the man who looked after them -and

this instance-" ��� *
A live stock expert who vvas askcl
his opinion on this story yesterday expressed uo surprise, and stated that
pigs which have, boen' transferred

���Frederick Taylor, F. B. Q. 8.. writing
in the Century Magacine about lite in
the Andaman lalanda, saya:
"Tbe sailing of tbe Maharaja from
Calcutta for tba Andaman islands was
oot accompanied by tbe usaal goodhys

"The prisoners were all manacled
and ahackled about the. ankles, with
chains fastened to bends at tb* wrist
Tbey were a despicable lot. ��t night
a continual moaning nnd ourslng and
hopeless sobbing came up from the
hatches and made sleep out of the
question for me. though tbe European
offlcer In the steamer's cabin apparently slept undisturbed. Burly the flrst
morning I went on deck and learned
thnt two of tbe male prisoners were
111 and had been brought up to tbe
-deck for air. They were closely guarded, and raw recruits wero stationed at
the railing to prevent them from committing suicide by jumping overboard
Into the Hugll river.
"TI*b Andaman* are literally the
homes of murderers. The Inhabitants
tire the moat vicious memlwrs of an
-older Civilization Hud the uncivilized

o sport nnd u pastime. In the nettle-
Bient are about 1.700 prisoners. Including 800 women. On arriving at Fort
ninlr the prisoners first spend six
months In solitary confinement In the
eellular Jail of Viper Island. They are
then transferred to one of tho associated Jails and the comparative blessing of hard labor In company wltb
���others, though still occupying separate

onse or starves. There Is also a system In vogue by which the more
friendly tribes of savs gee co-operate
with the authorities in rapturing **���
���raped convloas and receive rewards
for the return of tbe unhappy deserters. More often, however, the head
hunters kill the fugitive nnd return
only the bend, receiving the reward
Jnst the eame, the killing adding sest
to the chase and th* return of the

"Under these conditions there are

remarkably hazardous dashes for liberty have been made from time fo

Mr. Arthur Hawkes Loom j Up Larger
New Than Ewer Before.
Mr. .Vrthur?H,awkes, who has befen
appointed by the Dominion Government to act as Special Commissioner
for  the  Department of  Immigration,
has had quite a var.'egated career. Of
-coWse,, everybody knows Mr. Hawkes
is "British-born." He was/oorii iifthe
English   county   of   Kent���where   the
hops grew���.a fact which.may or may.
not be' Significant in connection wilh'
his qualities as a rapid riser.
We have been told thr.t Mr. Hawkes'
passed through quite a romantic period, wben as a youth he pursued fortune with hope and daring in our
great new Wes';, and oonceived there
the needs and responsibilities of our
splendid British-bom 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 and
London; traveled a good deal, and acquired experienee, confidence, and
avoirdupois, ln 1WH he returned to
Canada, acted for a while as managing editor of The World, then edited
The Monetary Times, and in 1907 became publicity agent for the-Canadian Northern Railway.
It was in Decemb;r of last year that
the notable controversy arose between
Mr. Hawkes and Mr. 3. Castell Hop-
kins at the Umpire Club. The way
these patriots of widely different temperaments lambasted each other was
a caution. At least Mr. Hawkes' share
of the lambasting was something to
remember. The row arose because
Bishop DuMoulin of Niagara; speaking to the Club, referred to the British
��� Suffragettes as vix��ns, and remarked,
so Mr. Hawkes averred, that they
ought to be bitten by rats. Mr.
Hawke rushed to the defence of the
vote-hunting ladies with characteristic vigor. The rumpus made good
r?e.ding in the newspapers. One paper, wc are told, had tlie following
really excellent heading in type one
day: "Mr. .'.Vwk��s-and-Mr. 'Opkins."
But when Mr. Hopkins' dignity and
Mr. Hawkes" aggressiveness were fully considered, second thoughts prevailed End tho heading was changed
to an ordinary, common-place one.
Mr. Hawkes is not only aggressive,
but  methodically   so.    When   ho   left
the   Canadian   Northern   last   wintc
and   started   his   paper,   the   British
K-in-s of Canada, everybody who knew
hlm   sr.id���or   rather,   thought���"Now
Hawkes   is   going   into   politics,   and
he's  going  to do  it by  rounding  up
the 'British-born'."   Sure enough, tho
guess was a good one.   Mr.  H��wkej
didn't get himself elected to  Parliament,  as  many  surmosed  he  would,
but in  the recent Federal  campaign
he  supplied  a mass of  literature   in
the   Conservative  interest*,   many  of
the i-.rticles appearing under the now
famous pen name, "John V. Borne."
And now Mr, Hawkes has his reward
in the form ol a roving commission
to look  after our immigration.
Mr. Arthur Hawkes oer.-.mally is a
big, jovial, always aggressive chap
who can iriake either irlneds or enemies with ease. And be make3 a lot
of friend*. He is comparatively
jjouns. and has many inter-'sts. Wirks
of reference record that his chief re-
rrcati-iu is gardening.���Toronto Staf-

Athletic ex-M.P.'s.
With the rugby season closed and
tho Parliamentary season at Ottawa
about begun, it is interesting to recall
that tbe new House will be without
two members, who were notable exponents ol the gridiron game in their
youthful days. Mr. Maitland S. McCarthy, of Calgary, and Mr. Hal Mc-
Givern, of Ottawa, who have retired
from Federal politics, are probably
the two best athletes Vho ever sat in
the  House  ot Commons.
Mr. McCnrthv. who is a cousin of
Mr. Leighton McCarthy, K.C. of Toronto, was born in Orangeville, and,
.that being tht case, he. of course,
played lacrosse as a boy. He was
also a baseball pitcher when Orangeville had a crack amateur team.
When he went to Trinity College
School he learned cricket and becam?
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, and at the last minute
Mac was asked to fall in. He was
looked u����on ns n has-been, and was
sent to the bat Jast, but he hit out
the very tidy score of 87.
Mr. McGivcrn played Rugljy both
with and against Mr. McCarthy in
the nineti-B, while as a cricketer he
stood In the front rank, playlhg on
several occasions lor Canada ngainst
thc United. States in the regular international   matches.
