Alderman Gray said that during the

of deep Interest which were touc'aed

Increase of 50 Per Cent, for April���
Prospects of Reco'd May
The story of the advancement of
tl e city may wed tear watching
through its monthly building re.uins.
Here is what the past month has to
tell. Number of permits istu.d, 78-
amount of money represented, $154,-
360. Comparing these figu es with
ihore for tha corresponding month o'
Inat year, It will be seen that tli?
year thowB an advance of over 50 pe
cent. In this respect.
Last April's figures were 53 permit-
issued of the value of $100,950. It 1?
of interest also :o note that the totals
for the first four months of the present jear aie 156 p rmlts is. ud, o
the value of $519,448. As the records
of the builJlng inspector's depart*
nfent only go back to some time in
February of last year, it is not possible to make a comparison for thc-
period of four months. May was tha
blgeest month during? the past twelve
months with its total of 62 permits
Issued of the valuj of $290,255, and
It may be confidently exre:ted tiat
the reaord for the month no.v opening
will be far la excess of this excellent total.

dial others from work. "This country Is free," he said, '"and every man

they moved out of the country the

New Year's Gilts.
The custom of making Kew  Yenrs
presents is derived from a remote hu
tiquity.    There was a grove in  Roma'Iman   who
dedicated to the goddc c Stretti-i
whom tho Romans regarded as llie
patroness of gifts, and from that grove
it was customary to get fresli twin's
to give as presents to mends a-:d relatives on New Year's day. During tin
sway of the enipercrs the people made
New Year's gifts to their sovereign.
The custom of making New Year's
gifts was continued after Kurope hnd
become Christian. For a time present
making was transferred to Easter, but
later on it atznin became associated
wit'.i the lirst day ol January,

An important engineering feat was
the construction of the Lake St. Clair

Those who omitted to visit
opera house last night made an error
which they wiil fln.l it hard to rectify,
lor they missed witnessing one of tit
cleverest and most amusing plays
wliich tbe Westminster opera house
has had the opportunity of providing.
It was particulaily regretted that
more persons haa not seen thoir way
to attend, as Manager T.'dy had gone
lo great t.oubh to s.cure Mr. Fuver-
sham and his success was worthy of
much better support from the citizens
than they accorded him last n'ght.
"The Faun," by Edward Knoblauch,
is a play which, although at times���
and those times occuired very frequently���rocking the house with
ldurhter, also causes one to pause a
moment and think how t.uly attiflcal
a great ��-art of our modern so-sailed
civilization is, or as it Is very tersely-
put by Mr. Knoblauch In one ef h's
witty sayings from the mouth of the
Faun, "Fol'owlng society ? Why, w;
used to call that following the herd."
The plot Is a very novel one; n
Faun, the Incarnation cf tha foices
ornntme, appears in Lord Stcn3-
bury's library Just as he is about to
take his life on account of hi* iec:u!
losses at horse racing and makes i:
compact with him that, If he will sho,\
hlm this modern society of his, he,
lhe Faun, will recoup for him his Ioji
foi tune. The pact is sealed and from
that moment, aml.'st some veiy amua
ing situations, lbe Faun staits o..
bis mission of making a complete
metamorphosis in the hearts of all he
meets. He shows them the artificiality of mcde:n soclity ini ideas and
of the curbing of natural Instincts
and feelings and bring3 this mission
to such complete success that every-
body concerned finds out, to their
great astonishment, who their naturai
affinity reiil.y Is.
Mr. Faversham, as the Faun, llvei
up to his reputation for versatility,
both his comic anl emotional pat-
being very convincing. Miss Julie
Opp in the pari of Mrs. Hope-Cl.uk
the society matron, wes in her happiest mood. In fac. tl 9 whole com
pany deserves the higi-.est praise, but
the laurels must be given to the cu
thor, some of whose witty saylngt
should become classical.
The audience, although not verv
large, was very app.eciative", tor they
all lelt that they weie leceiving of

Miss D. S. selected my CPge lo rlile

She kept her eyes on her toes. 1 tried

I guided her to Mr. Jason's door nnd
told ber tlrot If nny son of n gun

at her he would hnve to light me to a

���Two hours after Miss Demure had
I'.arted In to take down borax dictation old Mr. Jason rode up and down
in my cage to get u chance to say:
"Sammls, here's a dollur for you."
"Thanks, sir."
"A wonderful coincidence has occurred."
"They nre always occurring around
a skyscraper."
"I!ut this Is something sltogether tin-
lonkrd for. You saw ihe youug lady
that came to my olliceV"
"Sure. It wns one of my personally
conducted tours."
"Did It strike you. Sammls, that there
<wns n strong family resemblance between us?"
"Not a strike, sir."
"Here's another dollnr, Sammls.
Think ngsln."
"Why. now Ihnt I come to think of
it I believe there Is a resemblance, a
most striking resemblance. Ves. I remember of wondering lf she could be
your niece."
"That's right, Sammls, cultivate
memory nnd It wlll put many a dollar
In your pocket. Yes, I have found out
that Miss Holllday Is my niece. I don't
think there enn be any mlstuUe."
"The strawberry mark ought to

"It has faded somewhat, but It I��

"Yes, sir."
Wonderful Coincidence.
"1 ndvertlsc for n stenographer, and

Indignation Grows.
In two days it became known from j
the ground Iloor to tbe garret tbnt old i
Mr. .Inson bad an hourl of a stenogm- ���

to ride up nnd down with her.   Tbey ;
came to me with their bouquets audi

gled notes under the door,  but tbey ,
were not answered.    1 told nil inquir- j
ers that D. S. was surely Mr. Jason's
niece,   but  nobody   wonld  believe   It. j
They simply laughed and winked.    It
was Mr. Harker, fhe sarsaparilla tonic man, who came to me and said:
"Sammis, we are thinking some of
calling an indignation meeting to denounce thnt old reprobate of a Jason."
"What's he done?"
"We don't   believe  that  girl  is  his
"Must be. Strawberry mark on her

"Then the old hog painted it tbere

"Dut what's your particular kick?"
"Yesterday  I  sent in a bouquet of
twelve  American   Beauty   roses; cost
?1 nplece.   I went dead broke."
"I saw them down in the court an
hour later."
"Yes: the old villain threw them
there and then sent me a note sr.ying
that for n innn eighty yenrs o!d I
ought to be ashamed of myself. Sum- ;
nils, do I look to be eighty yenrs old?" ;
"Not a dny over forty," I says as he

Com* of the Esssntial Things to 6s
Considered Before Making Purchase.
In up-article of advice on nepurntors
A. W. lliidnlcli. assistant in dairying
111 the Kansas State Agriculture college, suys:
In buying n separator the most es-
Keutlal points to Ite considered ure:
(li The amount ot milb to he separated, ch the etlii-ieiiey of the machine.
Oi the life or durability of the im-
chine, (ti the ease of cleaning the parts
cotnlhg in coiituet with the mill;, (5)
the simple construction of nnd rlgld-
ucss of the gears and pinions, (<!i tbe
oiling device, (7i the construction of
.���using or frame.
Tbe efficiency of tbe mncblne is a
very essential point Tbis does uot refer nlone ns to whether tbe machine
If You Don't Keep Records. How D.
You Know the State ot Your Affaire?
It tbere Is any business In tbe world
heed ina a set of hooks it is id.- farm.
A fairly accurate bookkeeping plan
wiil cause tbe farm to mnke more
inouey. because it will show up the
unprofitable undertakings, and tbls
showing will naturally cnuse the farmer to give bis attention tn those things
whicb are revealed us profitable. On
tbls matter of bookkeeping Andrew
Boss of Minnesota says In the Kaunas
"Furming Is now considered ns a
business. To lie successful as a business man tbe farmer must adopt business principles. He should know the
cost of production of tbe various farm
products and which products can be
grown and sold at tbe greatest uet
profit and witb the least draft on tbe
resources of bis farm. He should
know what he has Invested In his
business nnd tbe rate of Interest his
Investment Is paying; also whether be
himself ls earning anything or whether bis Income Is enrned nltogether by
his money. If tbe latter, he mny as
well Invest bis money in 0 per cent
mortgages and take It easy himself.
"The ouly way to learn these facts
Is to take un inventory of tbe farm
nnd equipment. Start a simple accounting system, carrying It tbrough
the year, nnd taking a balnnee nt the
close of tbe year. The accounting
system need not lie complex nor the
labor exacting. .Inn. 1 to April 1 Is a
good time to tnke nn Inventory, ns the
stock Is nt Its lowest usually during
that senson. Tbere are many simple
forms of accounting suitable to the
farmer's uceds. nny one of which
forms may lie used.
"The whiter season offers many
spare moments for studying these systems nnd putting one of them Into use.
Why not utilize the moments nnd do
something that will be useful nnd at
the same time add to the knowledge
of the farm business? Often a grown
son or daughter may he induced to lie-
come the account keeper, thus getting
s good business training nnd Improving tbe mind nt the snme time. And
(t Is surprising how much use will he

will skim clean when skimming a 23
|ier cent or :w per cent cream, but if
one must furnish n 40 per cent or 47��
per cent cream will this machine skim
cleaner than nny other providing other
requirements ure equal? The separator, with cure in keeping the temperature of the milk between SH) to 100 degrees l-\. having Ihe tnncbine on a solid
foundation, the howl running true and
turuing tbe crank at the required
s|ieed. should not lmve more thnu iive-
bundredlhs per cent of butter fnt In
the skimmilk when skimming a 30 per
cent cream. ���
A good separator with reasonable
cure and attention should last from ten
to fifteen yenrs, wltb few or no repairs.
When we say tbat the pnrts of the
sepnrntor whicb come ln contact with
the milk should be so constructed as
to be easily cleaned we do uot refer to
the number of parts to be cleaned, but
to the construction ot these pnrts. Can
every piece of the bowl be taken apart
ro tbnt we hnve no cracks or shoulders
to cleanV If lt Is a disk machine, will
all of tbe disks come apart so that we
enn wash them Individually, or, lf
there Is any other device, can It be
taken apart so tbnt all of tbe surface
wlll be exposed nnd be easily washed?
Rome machines may be so constructed
that there are only a few parts, and
yet these few be more difficult to wash
and keep clean than a machine wilh a
great number.
Tbe parts coining In fvntaet wltb
tbe milk should be bear lly finned, as
this makes wwh'ng paster and pre
Veots the parts from rusting, lf thc
pnrts start rusting It Is very tedious
work to keep tbe machine clean. Uow
ever, no separator Is so constructed
that It can be kept clean and sanitary
without taking It apart after each sep
aration. In order to get tbe best results from your machine wash and
scald all tbe parts coming In-contact
with tbc milk after eacb separation.
Most of tbe standard machines bave
vertical and horizontal gears, wltb
each end of tbe pinion In a bearing,
thus reducing thy chance of tbe gears
moving ont of place to a minimum, and
this kind of gearing will run for years

without any repair or adjustment if l ru'turlst
tbe machine can be easily oiled.   Tbe
oil nnd dirt should be wiped off occa-
���donnlly and the bearings flashed with
coal oil. Tbe oiling of a separator
should be as automatic aa possible
The splosh system that ts used on some
of the separators makes tbe oiling automatic, requiring attention about once
n week, and wilh an oil cup for the
neck bearing we have the danger of
the bot hearing reduced to a minimum.
Although a aeries of oil cups with the
snap lever proves very satisfactory,
oil must be furnished the neck bearing
either by means of a cup or a benvy
ell pad, because the bowl travels at a
tremendous speed und ueeds a constant
bath of oil to prevent beating. The
lower bearing of tbe spindle must also
be so arranged ns to be oiled constantly while the machine la In use. Tbe
other bearings must be provided for tn
eome wny or other and, na previously
stated, ns nearly automatic ������ possible.
While tbe construction of tbe casing
or frame of the mncblne may look like
a secondary problem. It really ts very
essential for two reasons: Pint does
It protect tbe operator from gettlnp-
caught ln tbe gears and chains? Second, la it so arranged tbat you can
get at the gears and bearings easily to
clean them occasionally, ami tnke out

Where the horae differs from other
animal acta ia this; anyone can put
him through his performance without
his trainer saying a word. He actually
adds and subtracts. One gentleman
wrote tbe followlni: figures on tha
black-board and King gave the co-rec
total, 03452.and 24120 nnd the horse
gave 87,578 ts the amount. He aUo
picked ��� out the best lookins
man, and tho one that he thought
was not the best looking, which
caused lots of laughtor. He also tell3
colors and picks out tho diffo ent
(lags as called for fiom the audience,
and mind you his trainer does not utter a ��(ord. Manager Gillis tried to
induce Dr. Boyd the owner ot thia
beautiful horse to hold him over tho
:cet of the wee''-, but booking arrangements have been made for (he naxt
six weeks ei> he will only show heri
for three days. Another act on the
same bill .thii would ordinarily be tha
featira Is boniest te Cervo, "the wiz-
arl of the acro'deon," who plays
on a speclaily built instrument that
cost over $1,000. He played two class
ical selections and a meMay consisting of "Oh, you beautiful doll," "the
rag-time viclln," "Barn Dance" and
several others. For his closing seise
tion he has ch03en one of hl3 native
land, Italy. Harry Young Is undoubtedly the best eccentric dancer that
has ever appeared at tie Royal anl
that Is saying a lot as there have been
numerous dancing acts In this house.
He sings a courle of songs and tells
i few gags but his turn consists mostly of dancing. The motion piciures
were excellent.
A movement Is on foct among the
shop assistants of the city to work
for a half holiday some afternoon during each wesk. The (lerfcs of the
grocery and clothings stores point to
the fact that the hardware stores
have agreed to close on Satu day af
frernoons throughout the summer and
while that day may not be satis!ac- i
tory to the proprietors, still tie/
think their demands reascnable for a
half day's res.!, say on Wednes'lay o.'f
Thursday aftornoon.
Those who have ths movenrn' in
hand point to the fact that in all th:
cities in Great Bri'ain the s ores'.
close iu the afternoons of one of the
two days and they believe that lf the
proper stoi s are taken Iheir wishes
will be granted. The movem'nt is
'ust in Its inception, but further developments aie expee'ed within th:
next few days.
Gives each day a list of items which, either becaus3 of lowered prices or unusual (jua.'1'y, Bhow values
above the o.di^a.'y. But qulto aside from these thcrs ere hosts of articles for every purpose, which offer
the advantages of wl.'e ce'.eciin and unlimited supply, things you noed every day and perhaps flnd difficulty In getting.

noticeable that the orchestra were

Tlie rendering of Klgar's "The Banner of St. Georgo" did Jis:ice to that
celebrate! compote:. Tie well bai
anced chorus handled this in
shape, the weird music in the
scene where the kingd-im of Sylene i
desolated by the dragon changing to
;i more cheerful tone In tin secon I
where St George an Ives ti f ght the
dragon. The audience during the tea-
dcrlu-r of the socend part of the program could depict the scenei en ctad
In these mythical days by the dlf.e-
c-nt tones, rising from one of mouiu-
fulness to one of triumph, when tb
dragon is slain. The final scene is
when the patron sa'nt of Fnglani

princess, and dei;aits to (igiit cther
ba' ties.
Mr. Mackness was th? rscij lant of
much applause throughout the evening, Rni ho thoroughly dese-ved I .
