that tnere shall be one hundred male '

so that it may be ready for Immediate use in case of a sudden   mobilization of the Germany army.   The men

Mrs. Cornwallls-West Plans to Reproduce Sixteenth Century Community.
London, Feb. 22.���Tho busiest woman ln London at present is Mrs.
eorge Cornwallls-West. She has always been energetic. It Is in her American blood. When Bhe first came|to
England as Lady Randolph Churchill
she gave London society a' fillip. Never
has sho been content to travel in a
groove. But Just now sho has ln hand
a scheme which is by far the biggest
she has ever evolved.
Everyone knows bow she planned
and carried out with Immense success
1 tho Shakespeare ball last summer. Sha
intends to tollow up thiB summer with
a Shakespeare exhibition, lasting from
May until October. Not an exhibition
consibJng of rows of glass cases, nor
one that is made up of switchbacks
and open-air music. "Shakespeare's
England" at Earl's Court will be a
reproduction of llie sixteenth century.
"My idea," said Mrs. Cornwallis-
WeBt yesterday, "ls to raise money
for the Shakespeure memoiial by making people more familiar with the ago
in whicli he wrote. Thus the whole, of
the Karl's Court exhibition that ls under cover wlll be turned Into an Elizabethan town. From the twentieth century the visitor will walk straight Into the sixteenth. I have a large number of plans and drawings, many of
them representing actual houses, and
I from these we shall erect our buildings.    1 here will be greens and open

dancing circles, and  the Academy of
Dancing Masters has drawnvup a set
of rules   called'"the   ten   commandments of dancers," calculated to counteract   the frivolous   influence which
has lately Invaded society ballrooms;
Here  Is the  Dancer's  Decalogue.
They run as follows:
Have beautiful movements and you
have noble thoughts.
Correctness of carriage gives correctness of mind.
The drawing room dance should be'
a silent expression of courtesy and not
u series of unseemly movements without orier or taste.
The mental effect of dancing should
be a feeling of gentleness, politeneSB
and respect, and not of coarseness. ,
A coarse gesture is more harmful to
the min.I and often inspires more >a<l
thoughts than vulgar-speech.
Discipline your muscles an J always
maintain correct attitudes toward
friends.
Young man, hold the lady respectfully by the waist. Young womau, do
not rest altogether upon your partner
in dancing, keep a pleasing, gracious
attituue and you will oe respected.
Let your Intelligence, goodness aud
potueuess be known uy your movements.
Physiology should always correspond cioseiy with psychology.
Dance like a civilized being, and not
like tt savage.
Plan to Edify Americans.
It is stated that this "dancers' decalogue' is to be bent to tne principal
dancing schools in America, where it
win be exhibited in a prominent posi-
tion for the eduication of tne pupils.
Paris dancing masters are now at
loggerheads as to what to decide
about the latest Invention, the "Long
Boston," which seems to be something of a compromise between thi
"two-Btep" and tue "tipanish Boatoa."
Some of them have expressed the
~ ! opinion that notuing bat irencu
dances should be iusmonaoic in fu.i:s
{fail rooms, others, tue mode>ni^u, me
riJicuiiug the attempt to nationalize

Terre Haute, Ind., Feb. 22.���Possds
scouring the country have found uo
trace this morning of the bandits who
attempted to bold up the V andalla s
Sew iorn-St. Louis mall train no. 11
last ni���ht near Liggett, ind., six miles
Hest oi heie.
Because of more than an hour's delay ln making up a special train to
carry Sherlil Walsh and his deputies
to tne scene of the attempted roDbery
and the cutting ot telegraph wires, tbe
bandits obtained a good start.
Besides the oandit on the train who
Bhot at tne engine crew, lt is the opln-
.on ot train men that other members
of the gang weie hidden in a deep cut
througn which the train had just
passed and that the plan of the robbers to stop tbe train in the cut failed
because of their not understanding
how to give the signal with the bell
cord.
.Railroad officials say no effort was
made to break into the cars. It la
! their belief tbat when the bandits
failed to stop the train In the cut, they
abandoned their attempt and fled.
Work or Amateurs.
As tbe tratn approached Liggett one
of tbe bandits riding on tbe tender
.iailed the bell cord. The signal was
wrong, and when the train did not
stop the robber climbed over the tender and began firing at the engine
crew. One shot knocked a cigar from
the mouth of William Davis, the engineer. When the train was brought tu. j.lenrv
a stop lt was near a telegraph tower. ] tho ]^t
The robbers had evidently planned
to slop the train near a ravine, where
several men were ln hiding. Tbey attempted to open the mall care, but
were frightened away.
Davis, who had crawled from his
cab, ran to the tower and sent word
to the city. Just after hla message
was received, the wires were cut.
A special train carrying police and
special olllcers was rushed to Liggett,
but the robbers had escaped.
Sheriff Walsh, of this city, believes
the attempt to rob the train was the
wort of amateurB. He organized ft
���voBse of farmers and began a search

iThe Queen Victoria ot 8paln, -who
haa jusi made herseif very uopmar
with uie Spanish people by Influencing
King Alfonso to grunt clemency to tan
revolutionist i num. is only iA yeara
o.a. sue has lour ii\ing cniidicn uud
one.
She herself was born in 1887, the
first juoilee yeur of tne late Queen
\ lctoria, bhe wag the first royal child
boru in Scotian'o since tue oirtn oi
iving Charles l. tne.e in ltiou. LLte al.
ineinoers of the luitiah royal family,
tue youug Princess t,na received a
broaa education and has many accomplishments.
From her mother she inherited a
love oi music. Mie herself sings and
plays well, bhe is fond of the drama,
uuu as a child she became a ciever
anu competent little actress. With
nappy recollections of ber own childhood, yueen victoria ls an ideal
mother, and Intensely fond of children.
She also takes a keen Interest in the
children of the poor, and not long ago
presented a handsome sum to a creche
that had been opened at Seville.
Queen Victoria has kept up her love
of outdoor life. Her stable ls one or
ber chief delights. She owns many
fine British horses, and often has a
favorite mount brought out to ber in
the courtyard of the palace, to feed
with bits of sugar, carrot and apples.
Sbe and the king do much motoring,
und in summer the queen, who loic-.s
a picnic, will often give one tor her
children under the forest trees ln
sight of the snow-capped Sierras.
Wben at Madrid the queen likes
nothing better than her dally visit to
La Cranaja (Spanish for farmhouse),
the royal estate near the capital,
wliich nas exquisite gardens and fountains and terraces, which rival those
of Versailles. Here King Alfonso
plays polo and tbe queen amuses herself with trout fishing.
Queen Victoria Eugenie bas her
mothers love for lace, and owns the
wonderful lace brought to England
close on 400 years ago by a Spanish
princess, Katherine of Aragon, wben
she ctfnie to that country as qu^en ot
VI11. This lace belonged to
the late Queen Victoria, who left lt to
Princess Henry of Battenberg, who ln
her turn presented it to the then Princess Ena at the time ot her marriage.
A queer turn of fortune's wheel has
brought this old Spanish lace into the
possession of a queen of Spain who
was born a Britisbwoman.
Tbis recalls to mind that priceless
lace is owned by different members of
the British royal family. Queen Mary
has a rare flounce of honlton lace
that was on the wedding gown of her
mother, the late Princess Mary, Duchess of Teck, and also some splendid
point d'alc.ncon lace wliich once belonged to Queon Adelaide. The Duchess of Connaught has a large and very
valuable fichu of Youghal point given
her by Queen Victoria, and Princess
Henry of Battenberg owns and wears
old lace of great beauty and value
which was a present from Queen Victoria at the time of bor inarrliGe.���

LAND   SPECULATION.
There is eY^ prospect that this
year wlll be"-thw greatest in real estate transactions that Canada has
ever seen, it should be remembered,
however, remarks the Montreal Witness, that great booms have their reactions sometimes in the form of a
crash, and ihat at no time is it moro
necessary to be wary than when Invited to plunge with thousands into
a prosperous current. Such conditions
as we have today naturally attract
promoters of wild , cat propositions,
and a word of warning Is timely, lest
those who are not accustomed to
making investments may flnd their
savings gohe into a hole from which
they .will never be reoovered. There
are over three .hundred real estate
firms' doing business In Montreal, the
majority of them doing business legitimately; in fact, Montreal is remarkably free from land sharks who offer
fakes in the vicinity. Dishonest men
choose something beyond the reach
of easy investigation. But there are
in Montreal, as well as in every other
city in Canada, and even In the country places, men who are selling town
lots situated in Western Canada, and
other places that are absolute
swindles.
When one takes into consideration
that from the Montreal   postoffice to
the outer fringe of Westmount Is but
a distance of three miles, it Is plain
that,  bought   with   reasonable   care,
there is very little chance of loss within that radius if one buys property for
use.   Of course, some properties will
increase in value much more rapidly
than others.   Some may even go down
in value, but if secured for use and not
for speculation  tliey  will even  then
make reasonably sure returns.   Every
holder of real estate will not be a! le
to duplicate a case reported , ie otl
have opened offices In Moritreal and
are even canvassing from house to
house and by sensational advertising
are trying to palm off thelV littlo
patches of prairie land upon the unwary as town lots. Of course this
does not mean that every western
land proposition is a fraud. But land
investments for other than Immediate
use soon eat their heads off and belong to thc speculative order.   Better
other dress is of brilliant red taffeta,
and one of the principal characters
wears a black satin dresB with a
white ninon Jacket trimmed with a
little flounce and a great &reen bar
across the lYont "like a gate."   -
Th�� appearance of these creatlonB
provoked quite a gasp of astonishment In the audience. 'Still another
frock was of violent green color, with
gol.len brown satin sleeves and underskirt. The actress who wore this creation had donned a alue hat and car-
i ried a bright blue bag.     One of the
far to buy a home with the purpose of j 'n^osi elegant Paris   actresses   In   the
use   and   put   the   property to use | audience remarked, after the produc-
without delay.    We have ^^^^^X^a^eti^i
sertion to many obviously improbable | paix ���
advertisements.   In these  matters we
prefer to err on the side that will
help our readers rather than Injure
them. At the same time we need very
obvious ground for refusing, so that
this caution must by no means be
taken as guaranteeing all the bargains
offered.

Force  in  International   Relations.
It is often asserted that the existence of the armed forces of Europe,
one over against the other, Is provocative of war. They might be, they probably would be, if during negotiation
or in a moment of excitement they
were paraded ln threatening manner. Sensible men, however, know
well that oher sensible men will avoid
a known danger, unless circumstances
are such that avoidance may be taken
to show a yielding to fear: and therefore, unless desirous of collision   for
the world of highest development In j
material progress and in artistic and I
literary culture, is tending toward the I
elimination of that active display of j
force which we coll war.   May it not (
be that in confounding force with war
we are simply ignoring a fact of not
only general but universal existence?
Law Itself, -which its    extreme -advocates desire to see installed In place
of war, is, in the last analysis, simply
force regulated���a most desirable end
���but ihadequate for the very reason
that It is only one manifestation of a
power which is manifold ln Its exhibition.    Not only does the law for Its
efficiency depend  upon    force, as is
shown by the entire paraphernalia of
Justice, from the single policeman,to
the final court of appeal, but under
law and within law force continually
controls.���North  American  Review.

Mrs. Frevert recently iSCelved from j maintenance or the general    interna-
I D. Appleton & Co., who published most | tional  balances?    The point Is inter-
I of Phillips' work and with whom he | esting, especially at this present mo-
' had royalty  contracts,  statements of
1 amounts due him on which It is possl-
: ble to estimate the gross returns from
his literary work.
Mr. Phillips left no real estate.   His
personal belongings were few.      His
clothing would probably not bring
i more than $50 at a forced sale.    He
had little jewelry.      His watch, if it
were not  for its associations,  would
not bring more than $-5.     He had a
scarf pin  valued  at $���!,    shirt  studs
i worth $12 and a $3 per of cuff links.
Practically his entire estate���capital
and income���was in his literay work.
He had only a small bank account,
' $21)8.48, in the American Exchange
1 National  Hank.     At the time of his
death he hadon hand one short article,
three   novels and four short    stories
among his effects.     These were not
completed and Mrs. Frevert, who has
made efforts to sell them as executrix
of the estate, believes t>lie will not be
able to do so.
Mrs. Frevert was made her brother's
heir under a will made in Paris several years ago, which was witnessed
by Ernest Poole and Willi." m English
Walling. According to the statements
made to her b.v Appleton & Co., she
will realize about $13,000 from royalties to be paid by them.

But people with small Incomes cannot be too careful about Investing
their savings in oil lields or orange
groves or town lots in the magic west.
The west will continue to grow���of
course it will���but the great bulk of j
alleged town sites advertised by western land promoters are miles away
irom the towns, the trade mark of
whose, names they attempt to fringe. I
For instance,  lots In  Northern-;	
or Western may be ten milea
from the parent .town, which doubtless is thriving enough. At a glance
ten miles from a western town seems
nothing* but reflect for a moment how
many miles from the .Montreal post-
office was worth anything at all but
to grow oats and peas on. A lot just
big enough to build a house on is of
practically no value unless It can be
reached by an electric car service.
Uow many years wlll It be beforo
electric cars roach most of these alleged town lots? How many years
will it be before the population of
oven the most thriving of these new
towns, Just tapped by railways,
nt retch out to a radius of ten miles ?
If a main highway passes tbe lot II
may get an early value, but this will
be .i very rare case. In the meantime these western promoters are look-
ini        ���astern money.   Many of them
estimated at $1967.60.   "Joshua Crane"

The Westerner's Ideal.
The westerner's willingness to give
up home, neighbors and old associations lor the sake of a "claim" on the
prairie is not sordid. His stern pre-:
occupation with "getting ahead" is a
part qf his inherited passion for personal independence. I bave seen a
grey hue steal over the face of the
settler when speaking of someone who
. had "lost his farm" and had to go
out by the day." For the wage earner's lot the true-born westerner feels
a dread quite incomprehensi >le to cit-
, ies and  to oU communities.      If   he
I ruthlessly sacritlces comforts and cul-;
! ture, it is that he may win a footing

Paris, Feh. 22.���An extraordinary
display of bizarre and outre frocks
seen on tho stage of the Vaudeville
theatre at the production of the new
play, "The Rue de la Paix," by MM,
Abel Hermant and Marco de Toledo,
has provoked lively indignation lu the
real Itue de la Paix.
The action of the play places the
world of dress on the stage, and enthusiastic reports heralding the marvelous display of frocks which was going to be seen led Parisiennes to
await the dress rehearsal with breathless interest. But general disappointment was caused by the daring color
contrasts seen in some of tho. frocks,
and today tho real Rue de la" Paix
says that violenco is done to the exquisite taste In cut and hue for which
I'aris is famous.
A dress expert who attended last
last night's production furnishes the
following particulars: In the first act
one of the Parlslennes visiting the
dressmaker's salon wears a day dress
of pink velvet trimmed with Bwans-
dowti. another a creation of violet velvet trimmed with fur, with a cerise
jacket, nnd a third an extraordinary

Nothing means more to a man of

N'cxt to his private fireside, hls home
town ls the place that should have tho
best that is in him. That ls the
place that he knows best; that knows
nim best And all things being equal,
there is no place on earth where a
man can Invest bo advantageously as
In his home town. This is true, speaking generally. But of New Westminster it is especially true. No jnun
ever had a better Home Town than
you or I, who live ln New Westminster lmve.
If you would read the letters that I
get every day from people where cold
weather, falling crops, uncertain climate and other disadvantages are almost unendurable, you would thank
the good fate that sent you here to
make your home. You would never
have a thought of going elsewhere, and
your entire energies would be directed
toward getting as much property as
you could right here ln town, and
keeping it.
For when all the people that are
looking for a gaod place to live the
good free life, come to settle ulon-;
this Fraser river, I tell you, property
will be worth a good many times what
you can buy it for now.
So If you live in New Westminster,
buy in New Westminster.

s       BENNET BURLEIGH.
	
Famous Correspondent Hai Seen Active Service Since War of Secession.
Bennet Burleigh, now the doyen of
active war correspondents, is at "the
front" in Tripoli. It is not generally
known that the famous correspondent
of The London Daily Telegraph fought
aa a youngster on the Confederate
side in the American Civil War, and,
it may be added, was twice sentenced
to be shqt by the Federals in the
course ol the campaign. Sir Charles
Wyndham, the actor, was another who
saw service in the same war as an
army surgeon beforo hs decided to ex-
changj the medical for the theatrical
profession.
Mr. Burleigh has seen more active
service probably than any man living, not excluding proiessional soldiers, since he has participated uot
only in British wars, but in those of
all ether nations during something
like half a century, in the course of
which he has engaged in some twenty-five different campaigns. He has
gone through enough hardship and
exposure in pestilential climates to
kill half a dozen men, and has been
in the tightest of tight corners again
and again, but miraculous luck has
always attended him, and hia many
friends look to fee him back again
safe Hnd sound from Tripoli in due
course.
One of Mr. Burleigh's best "scoops"
probably was his interview with Joubert on the eve of the last South
African wur, The slow troop train by
which he was traveling was overtak
en by a special on which Joubert
and his stftff were going to the front.
Burleigh waited till it was just moving out o'. the station, and then bluffed" the stationnrtister into stopping it
by signal, telling him th%t he had
been left behind. The special stopped, nnd Burleigh got on board���to
n�� congratulated heartily by Joubert
on his enterprise, and to get fr<jm the
Boer generalissimo a capita! interview.

Wliile the Rev.  Sidney Swann, the

in  a  20-foot  racing  skiff,  in  the  ex

by   addressing   the  crowds  who  were
drawn  nightly  to the local Salvation

fact that from  that timt  the opposition commenced to subside, and some

After Keir Hardie.
The Liberals are out for Keir Har-
die's seal?. The uncompromising Socialist has been going up and down
the country condemning the Government, particularly for tneir action in
calling out the troops at the time of
the railway strike. Mr. Lloyd George
took the lead when he gave Mr. Hardie a dressing down in the House ol
Coittmons, which, however, made the
Socialist lender bitterer than ever,
and his attacks have been so sveere
that even the labor leaders have had
to repudiate them. The Libera] revenge is to take the form of opposing the re-election ol Mr. Hardie for
Marthyr-Tydvil. Hardie is a Scotsman
and has not been able to manage the
language ot Wales. To most of his
constituents Welsh is their native
tongue. The Liberal campaign against
Mr. HaTdie is, therefore, to be carried
on in Welsh, which the Chancellor of
the Exchequer al^d most of the Liberal /leaders (pt Wales can talk as well
as they can Fnglish, and it generally
carries a Welsh audience. Whether it
wiU wean the Welsh miners from

be seen.

that he richly deserved tbe penalty Inflicted. It is the custom to examine
prisoners, however, betore tbey are assigned to their cells. When this old
reprobate was brought up the Interrogation went thus:
"Wbat ls your name?"
"Bndd Dobbs."* ;   \?''���{'.' 'j

Persistency
Is a necessary attribute to
the most successful kind of
advertising. The effect of
an advertisement is sustained by one following it.
Advertising
Can never be overdone as
long as you can deliver the
goods, and it means as
much to your business as
fire in a locomotive. Steam
will generate so long as the
fire is stoked and water
kept in the boiler.
