is a friend of the clerk of the weatlo"
and so all was sunshine and smlio?,

The May Queen held ne rayal

back were His Honor Judge Uowav,

the Coronation.
Miss Welsh has dark hair, Miss
Staton's is light, and the pair formed a most pleasing contrast. Like
the maids of honor they were tl essed
simply in white, and presented a
chaining e.\ample of the girlhood of
the fairest city of Biitish Columbia.
The retiring queen then delivered her
pai ting address to her subjects in
these words:
"My Loyal Subjects: For the last
time I have the houor of addressing
you as such, and in so doing, I desire to express my thanks to you, one
and all, for the many kindnesses
shown me during the year that ls now
almost past.
"I shall, in the future, recall many-
pleasant memories of events during
my reign; many are personal, some
aie of a public character, for even a
\oung girl cannot fall to notice the
many improvements constantly taking j lace in tiiis city; and as your
May Queen, I ain specially pleased to
notice that the citizens who so honored me are sup; o: ting the advancement of the Ro;al City ln every pos
slide manner.
"Our leign h-'s been saddened by

"I no.v welcome Mlss Annie Siaton

At the conclusion of her speech she
turned to her successor and placed
u;on her head a chai let of flowers.

Presentation of Medals.
Then came the march past of the
Boys' Brigade, Boy Scouts and Girl
Guides, truly a most Imposing spectacle, and the bodies were then drawn
up In order for the presentation of
medals to members of the first organization. The list ia as follows, Queen
Annie, shyly regal, making the presentation and each red coated boy saluting smartly as he received hls reward.

Happily the May Day celebrations
passed off with little hitch, but It was
b.v the narrowest margin that a most
serious accident was averted. Soon
after the children had dlspeised for
the presentation of candies and
oranges, and as Ihe decorated automobiles were returning to Columbia
stret. one of the cirs by blowing its
hooter startled a borse whicli waB
drawing a buggy in which were two
young men named N, Newman aud D.
Aimitage.
The hoise dashed off at top speed,
throwing the occupants of the buggy
to the ground and caieerlng away
down towards the entrance gate.
About 50 yards from this point a lady
was walking with hsr two little girls
and Into them the excited anima'
dashed, knocking thein down, but
marcellouB to relate not injurying any
of thein beyond the shock and a
hrulse on one of the lillie children.
The buggy was overt i- ned at tho
scene of this marvellous escape, and
the horse having evidently jumped
clean over them, continued its course
until cant.ured at the entrance by the
mounted scouts.

OBSERVE MOTHER'S
DAY ON SUNDAY
Old Custom Revived���Carnations and
Slmr.el   Cake���Come3 from
Philadelphia.
Sunday is Mothere' Day. On this
'ay everyone is expected to honor ihe
memory of bis mother, whether dead
or living, by the wearing of a Ho .ver.
For a dead mother a white carnation
is worn aud tor a living one a pink
or colored carnation. Flower* a��e
alto put on the slaves ot mother* -asbo
'.iave gone to ths Great Beyond.
The origin of Mothers' Day Is not
very c'.ear.   According to one account
the keeping of this dhy is an old English custom.    In that countiy,    however, lt was observed on   iMid    Lent
Sunday  and   Its  special   feature  was
the "simnel" cake, a delicious delicacy
for wliich  ti.e  southwest  of England
is  famous.    According to the    other
story,  Miss Anna Jarvis, of Philadelphia, desired to commemorate the anniversary of her mother's death and
began the custom of wearing a flower.
She wrote to the papers at the same
time and  very soon  the custom was
adopted throughout the United States.
Mlss Jarvis suggested the white carnation as the most suitable flower to
^e worn, because, as she   said,   "Its
whiteness Btands for purity; its form
beauty;  its fragrance, love:  its wide
field  of growth,  charity;   its  lasting
ouallties,    faithfulness;    all    a    true
mother's attributes."
Whatever its origin, this touching
observance is honoied very widely in
the United States and Canada. Not
much attention has been paid to lt in
Westminster ln the past, but there
are signs that in tbe future many
people will be seen wearing the carnation on the second Sunday ln May In
honor of their mothers.
May Queen  and   Her Court Attend���
Opens Ball with the Master of
Ceremonies.
Eight o'clock came round very
swiftly and with it the gieat ba.J
room in the exhibitions building filled
with crowds of children and grown
ups ready to receive the May Queen.
Soon she entered with ber court and
the giand march toon place. Surely
there was never a happier man than
the gallant master of ceremonies as
with Her Majesty, a plctuie of girlish
grace', leaning on his arm, he led oft
the march.
A.nd after that what fun there
was. There were treai big men dancing with pretty little girls, theie were
girls of all ages dancing together, and
there were little bojs ln uniform
chasing each other around the pillars
when they were not doing the same
outside the circle. Around sat hundreds of parents and still more chil-
dien watching the animated scene.
The band played very nicely, and jjst
when one was getting down Into the
swing of the lance It had a habit of
stopping, just eo tuat everyone could
clap and wait anxiously until it started again, and then think how good It
was to rlay a little longer. So at
least, the Daily News and a little girl
ieasoued It out.
It was' much nicer to dance than to
look on, because there were so many
people crowding around the room, although the ball commutes had provided seats for over half a thousand.
From a dais railed at one en.I of tbe
beautifully decorated hall the May-
Queen, and her maids of honor surveyed the srer.e, that is when they were
not. dancing. And that was only between |he various .ItemSj Busy msn

Higher Salaries for Provincial  Police
Recommended���Gaol Overcrowded
���Hospital Too Small.
Having disposed of the cases
brought befoie them, the grand jury
yesterday made an investigation into
various conditions and yesterday
morning made tbeir piesentment to
the presiding judge. In this ihey
noticed the large calendar of indict
ments, 21 in a.l, submitted to them
and regretted that '-rime iu the province was on tne increase, partly due
they though; to the increase in popu
Iation and the mi..ed nationality ol
tbe immigrants.
The piovlncial police force they
consldeied was hampered by the
sraallness of Its numDers, but tliey
exp:e3sed their appreciation of its
wcrk under the piesent conditions.
"We consider," they went on, "that,
the wnfces paid to this force are in-
sunicient lor the nature of their ser
rices they render and we lecommend
that the question of increasing then
salaiies should have consideration."
'The pio\Incial jail we found to be
in pertert order and everything spotlessly clean, but tliere is much overcrowding. This ls a condition of
things that ought to be remedied at
once, and we recommend that there
be nn entirely separate building for
the female prisoners.
"We wish to express our approval
of the precautions taken at the land
registry office for the pievention of
flre and preservation of the documents, the institution in this respect
being thoroughly up to date, but the
wor"k of filing applications, etc., is
one year In arrears and still accumulating. This would seem to call for
an increased Etaff and a lai ger build
ing.
"At the Royal Columbian hospital
we found that the matron, Miss Scott,
assisted by a capable Etaff, is rendering efficient ssrvics under very ad-
ve-se conditions. The building the
grand juro-s unanimously condemned
as tco small, .insanitary, and unsafe
in case of fire."

***************<*
It was a day of so many delightful
episo.'.eB, this May Day which at last
has come and gone, that It Is hard to
pick upon one which for any reason
stands out above the others. But
there Is one side to the earliest, functions of the May Queen which appeals
to all in its meaning, one which Is to
some extent hidden from public view,
but which is rl;e in food for reflection as to tte (.ooi effected by the
observance of the grand old festival
of spring.
Woman Is no.vhere seen to better
advantage than when bent upon an
errand of ministration to those who
are In need of help ln any sense ot
the word. So while the school children aie eagerly diminishing the piles
of candies and oransea In the big machinery building lt may be of Interest
to follow the movements of the queen
and her court.
The royal party has Its presents, the
grey horses are called and away they
go down the hill, away to the left,
and so come to the Royal Columbian
hospital. It Is a sight Indeed to see
the pain drawn faces light up with
loy as the little maids pass through
the words giving flowers ta the inmates. It Is indeed as though a ray
of sunshine has been wafted Into the
place. The matron and tbe nir ses
welcome the party, and after a little
wblle off they go again.
' The next halt Is at St. Ann's academy and here a royal welcome waits
The girls of the institution are all
drawn up in readiness to receive the
(iueen and one of their number steps
forward and presents her majesty
with a delightful basket of the
-hidf est (lowers and an address
breathing of tenderness and allegiance.
At St. Mary's hospital the party
again stops, and again flowers are dls
tributed by the girls to the patients
there. Last of all the court proceeded
to tbe home of the e\-queea, and there
���he regal banoyet was enjoyed. To
serve othera as well as to reoeive
homage ls an attribute of a queen in-
I deed.
May Day Scenes and Parade of Fire
Brigade Were Recorded.
The moving picture operator was a
busy man yesterday, so too were the
city  engineer,  who  steered  the auto
containing the machine, and also the
publicity   commissioner.    Just  befoie
noon  the   whole  of  the  fire   brigade
turned out and passing down Columbia street  formed    up    near    Eighth
stroat and  came back up the street
as fast as  the horses could  run.    It
was  a   brave   show  witb   Pire  Chief
Watson in his red auto leading   the
way.
The cinematograph was used ox*
tenshely during the time that the procession was making its way to the
park, and tlie chief incidents of the
plrturesque ceremonies were recorded by It such as the crowning of
the queen, and the presentation ot
medal.-; to the boys' brigades, and the
old English Maypole dance.
Messrs. Pathe Fieres' representative assured the fire chief that the
pictures were a g;eat success. They
will be shown at the opera house in
about ten days time.
Besides the moving pictures several
photos were taken by iMr. H. E. Leash,
who recorded several circuit pictures,
one at the Crescent and others during the proceedings at the jark. His
services were arranged for by the publicity committee to be used ln articles
which will appear in various magazines. They wlll be placed on view
eventually in the Colonial Institute
the Canadian government office, and
the office of the agent general for
British Columbia ln London.
The amateur knights of tbe bulb
were there ln their scores, and many
good pictures were obtained.

The case is to come up again at tha
next assizes.
After a forenoon spent with the
writing experts the court assembled
again at 2:30 p.m. to continue the
same kind of evidence. The defence
put on t vo witnesses who testified
that they did not believe the critical
documents were tne work of the same
person. Tbe accused did not take the
stand.
In his charge to the Jury, Justice
Clements explained to them how they
must deal witb the writing and the
expert testimony; that if they thought
that such a witness showed bfas then
tbey should throw out such testimony.
He also reminded tbem that the accused had the benefit of tbe. doubt.

Seattle, May 10.���The police tonight
arrested a Socialist speaker who was
addressing a large street meeting at
Fourth and Pike streets. He was
booked for using profane language.
The speaker, who was evidently
t-ikon by surpi tse, asked the crown to
disperse In an orderly manner. Wben
the patrol wagon rolled away wltb
the prisoner, tbe crowd gave a cheer
for blm. Hls place on the aoap box
was taken immediately by another
speaker, and still other speakers were
made ready for the expected ordeal
of arrest. However, the second orator, who avoided the profanity of hls
predecessor, was not molested. So
far as known there ls no Intention of
beginning a "free Speech" crusade.
but only to compel the Socialist orators to abstain fiom..obscene and profane language. No Socialist street
speaker has been arrested since ths
free speech war of several yeara agov
which was won by the Socialists.

The fine weather, while keeping
many from attending the weekly market, on account or seeding time,
brought out a une attenaance yesterday morning. While loath to leave
tbe farm work, which is important at
this time of the year, the farmers,
who have children in their household,
bad to respond to the call, and killed two birds with one stone, that of
attending the market and also taking part as interested spectators in
the annual paiade.
Very little difference was noticed in
the prices from those of last week.
Eggs and butter found a ready demand, both these commodities, keeping to the same figure, the forinei
selling at 86 cents per dozen while
butter found ready buyers at 35 and
���10 cents per pound.
Vegetables appear to be scarce,
very little being brought in. It is
thought however, that with the good
weather now prevailing, there will be
a plentiful supply from now on. Rhubarb was au exception in this respect,
the growers up river tending down a
plentiful supply hy boat, which sold at
10 cents per bunch or tive cents per
pound.
The fish stalls had on sale a good
supply of lhe finny tribe, the variety
and  quality being   exceptionally fine.
Beef and mutton were as scarce as
ever and thc little olfeied for sale
found ready buyers. Veal was tlie op-
posite, while quite a stock of porn
was shown,

deal of attention and tbe flying of the

is the ollclal, flag of the exposition

The mctto of the City of Desttnv
wrou.hr in huge electric letters appealed to Mr. Parker. As a motto
"\ou'U Like Tacoma" was regarded
bv the hl;h financier of tbe wireless
scheme as nifty and particularly attractive on a sunny afternoon when
one has time to kill.
Swinging along Tacoma's streets,
chatting amiably with his eon, Mr.
Par.er, clothe 1 aa becomes a man ol
wealth, ain cared to enjoy his ocur-
lion outside the pi Ison. The afternoon was alluilng, antl there appeared ta le no need of hurrying back to
the Island.
fca'tle residents who knew the

minded he gave no el~n.
The mvsterv of Parler's excursion
was solved when It became known
that he bad gone to Tacoma to consult an ear s-eclallst. For several
vears Parker's hearing has been
somewhat Impaired, and It was to re
rel-e a hl^er skill than the prison
doctor could give that the trip from
the Island was arranged.

CLECTRIC  SMELTING.
California Pig Iron-Professors and
Iron Masters Co-opsratlon.
San Francisco. May 10.���The flrst
carload of |lg lion ever shipped ou
of California and the first commercial
lot of electrically smelted P'�� ��r��n
ever shlpi ed anywhere, left Shasta
county for Salt Lake City yesterday.
The ore was mined from large deposits on the Pitt river clo'_<�� to the
smelter which now has a capacity ol
12 tons daily and has heen In continuous o eration for 23 days. A second furnace Is building. Heat Is generated by electricity transmitted from
a water-driven power plant. The pro-
cess-has been rented by scientists
of Btanfod university, co-operating
with | radical Iron masters, after six
years of experiments.
California Is rich In Iron but barren
In coal and the cost of Importing con-
lng roal has made blast furnaces unprofitable. The compsny belleves.it
^ can compete successfully in western
markets with eastern and southern
pig Ircn.

CHINESE FAMINE FUND.
The Chinese famine fund does not
appear to be growing with tliose
leaps and bounds which would In all
probability have followed an appeal',
say for the Titanic survivors, or any
other cause affecting more nearly our
own kith and kin. We have the Chinese among us in Iiriiisb Columbia.
Many people doploie their presence
perhaps many more go further than
merely deploring, but, however, this
may be, we should not. let our attitude towards the Chinese in our midst
interfere with our attitude towards
their unfortunate countrymen in
China itself.
The ciuestlon at issue is upon a far
���wider plane ihnn one of race or creed.
lt. is one of humanity as a whole.
Some 50 cents of our money will save
a man's life. Suiely, if this could once
be fully realized by the people of
Westminster there would be no lack
of contributions. Men, women and
children are dying literally by the
thousands in China. Tbe failure of
tlie harvest and the upheaval which
has resulted in the birth of the Chinese republic is responsible for this
statt of things. Food supplies are
short, and will be until the new harvest is gathered in. Pitiful talcs are
told of Fiinllar famines where numbers of people bad not quite enough
food to tide themselves over until tiie
growing crops should have been garnered, and died in scores by the side
of the fields of slowly maturing grain.
A few cents can easily be spared by
every one in the city who will turn
for a moment to call at either of the
following places where contributions
are received:
The Hank of Montreal, tlie City Hal
(collector's department), the Brit isl;
Columbian office and the Daily News
office.
Other cilles in tUe'.Domiiiion are responding to  lhe  call.      Here  is  ho.v

Last Saturday was and ever will be
a famous day in the history of Canadian roads. On that day there was
planted at Alberni in the presence of
over one nun lied automobiles and
nearly one thousand persons the lirst
and the furthest west post of the
great Canadian Highway which, It Is
hoped, will within three years stretch
from sea to sea, from the Pacific to
the Atlantic, from Alberni to Halifax.
I wonder how many of those who
were present understood the significance of the occasion. Probably
many were aware of It, but it ts not
likely that more than a few thoroughly realized It, appreciated it. Put after
all that does not matter much. The
thing is done and even if it was done
light-heartedly it can not be undone.
Ey the way though, it very nearly was
undone a day or rather a night, later.
Some of those rascally fellows from
Port Alberni crept over to the rival
town at dead of nhht "by the light of
u lantern dimly burning" and up they
dug tliat precious post, and carrying it
proudly to their o��vn domain, planted
it defiant in the centre of the new
town. Next morning thero must, have
been a terrible to-do. All the residents of the old town must have
fumed with horrid in UgnatlOn. Down
the canal at the poit the mayor summoned a hasty meeting of bis trusty
Councilors, With outward dignity but
inward smiles, they must have de
haled this tender problem of foreign
politics. Finally with tactful austerity they resolved tliat the post must
be returned with suitable apologies tc
those to whom it had been given. For
after all these are the days of clvlza-
tion, and highway robbers that would
rob the very highway of its posts car.

townsites. And so once more Uu

It was sure some crowd.
Coronation weather favored tbe

The tet corn on the left toe of the

later by the old veteran tailing a

Trading cn thn main street was at

The fctt.iim (,rgnn. a feature of a

The K. It. O, signs were placed tin
the 0lBCtTla cai s long before the procession. Very few delays occuried
with the service, special cars being
/jl.iccd on tho Vancouver run follow
ii<S the ceremony.
That is a magnificent run from Na

I wonder what the voices of the

that there ls one if only one Btipula

of ours that binds the company to an

That clause seems to have bean for
gotten. Why not revive It? Westminster is waking up these days aud
i c: haps tli3 sturdy shouts of the con
doctors would help ns to keep awake.
Al uny rate it would l.elp us to gpt

iave us trying to see In the dark

understand that and so it will prove a

SPORTING REVIEW
���������������������������������
��� BA8EBALL.
Tie trouble that besets Promoter
Jack Curley at this stage of his promotive activities is how to keep Jack
Johnson's face straight whll�� he (the
promoter) is trying to convince the
publlc of the sincerity of his efforts
to bring about a championship battle
to a finish between Johnson and Jim
Flynn. Johnson has done little but
ridicule the match ever since he entered into it, and his attitude is making it hard for Curley to Impress the
sporting public with the genuineness
of the enterprise or to bring it soberly to consider the fight ln the light of
a possibility.
The forfeits are up, Johnson's
jimong theni, and from the formalities
already complied with there woull
be uo valid reason that the intent Is
not to go to a finish with it lf Johnson, who Is the ipoat essential part
of it, would attune his conduct to the
pronator's policy of publicity. It ls a
(iue��r state of affairs when Curley
has to regard the principal party to
the agreement as the chief "knocker"
and has to resort to offers to bet to
counteract the effect of Johnson's
-sneering remarks.
Ileally what Johnson has been saying about the match when told again
means nothing, but lt leaves the impression that he Is not entertaining
seriously the thought of flghting Elvnn
In July. Until Curley clears the atmosphere on that corner the enterprise, which wlll have to Inspire a
healthy general Interest to make lt
pay for itself not to mention realize a
profit, will languish. Johnson's assistance will have to be enlisted to boost
In a positive and emphatic manner to
give the affair the true ring. It will
not do for him to remain skeptic or
oven Indifferent. He must be brought
to realize that it wlll be through his
efforts as much as through those of
Curley and Flynn that the light ls to
he brought av>out.
baseball weather with us now, It appears to be high Ume there should be
something doing in this line of sport.
The members of the Westminster
Cricket Club will hold tlieir first practice game on Moody Square this afternoon. Picked teams will clash with
each other, and all prospective members, who have hopes or making the
regular team, are requested to be on

The Turks Are Not Very Clean, But
They Have Plenty of Food and
Are Bubbling Over With High
Spirits ��� Thc Depot at Aziiieh
Grows Continually to Accomrmdatj
Arab   Reinforcements.
Turkey and Italy aro still nt war,
alHioug ��� Cana;la hears very littii?
about it. In this contest Lr Tripoli-
tan supremacy the big engagements
hi.vc been few and far between. Yet
there has been considerable loss of
li." occasioned by the numerous potty, but still deadly forays, between
small desperate bands of Arabs and
the Italian outposts.
Amongst the snows of a 'Canadian
winter it is hard to conjure up vision i of a camp, situated In the heart
of a tropical oasis, all typical of heal
and of the Orient.
The only way to1 really understand
t!.j Turkish-Italian content is lo know
the national life us lived in Tripoli,
'lhe following is written by an expert
on the subject, and gives the render
the necessary information to under- [
Stand how hopeless is the task that
the Italians liave taken to themselves. :
Jebel Zoweiah, a Veritable Aero- ,
polis rising from .the surrounding
plains, had long been visible before
our eyes beheld the goal of our lon.'
an.', difficult journey, the Turkish
enmp at Azizieh, which lit : at the foot
of the hill. We found ourselves in
t'.".o midst of a wonderfully busy srene.
In a large open space, surrounded,
by irregular buildings, squatted hundreds of Ar."' chattering like magpies and carrying on a brisk trada
with ollicers nud men.
There appeared to be n > lack i !
food for the Sultan's fighting men in
Tripoli. On every side were sacks
and baskets full of onions, potatoes.
chillies, date.;, lemons, egg-, rice, mut.- j
ton or goats' flesh, suu'nr. and native
bread; there was oven a fair number
of rather lean fowls, but no trace i'l
coffee. Apart from tobacco, which was
scarce and costly, one could see ll.)
sin i of famine prices. Potatoes wero
selling at three pounds for 4 cents,
eggs iG cents a dozen, meat about tS
cents a pound. As far as food is concerned, the war might last for years
in the interior of Tripoli.
Thc market is bounded on the south

Cilawa OU Timers Recall Anecdotes
ot Great Canadian.
Old members, officials i.ni newspapermen around the capitil l-eunent-
ly distuss the late Hon. Edward Blako
these days and nil express much re-
sppet for the former ieadat and advo-
cate. "He was one ol the whites?
men who ever lived," snis an old
journalist who hnd gone through two
campaigns   with   hi:n.
A stcry told by Mr. IS. H. Hnltnn,
at one time member for Huntingdon,
wns recalled to illustrate Mr. Blake's
imputieneq with inexactness or guesswork. Mr. llolton nnd tl.3- lato
Judge Lister, then a niem'.cr ol the
House, hud a dispute over tho meaning of a certain chiuse in a statute.
They agreed to leave its interpretation to Mr. Illnke, and Mr. Hollon
was deputed t> seek nit the groat
lawyer and a.-k him tin question.
Book in hand, with his firmer in tho
plae\ he entered Mr. Illnke's room
to Iind him luiricd in books like a
, spider in the middle of his wob.
Without looking up, Mr. Blake said:
i "Weill-" Mr. Holton explained the
situation, and Mr. Blake thereupon
asked hia to r id the clause. "I
stood up there like a schoolboy,"
said Mr. Holton afterwards, in relating thc incident. "And v;hon I hail
finished the bnro reading of the
clause Mr. Blake said, 'Well, tliat :s
what it means,' and that is all 1 g^t
out of  him."
One     of     Mr.     Blake's     greatest
speeches  in   Parliament   wns   his  arraignment  ot  the   C.   P.   R.   bargain
made by the Government of Sir John
Macdona! I.    This  was   in   the  early
eighties.    The  speech  lasted  several
days,  and  was a  masterly  presentation  ill  detail  of the  Liberal   party's
criticism  of what they  believed  was
rank improvidence and extravagance.
The subsequent affluence of the  railway is taken by many as evidence of
tin soundness of Mr. Blnke's position
on this question.   The length and minute detail of the speech was nuittel
ior much comment, and-nt times cf
jocular  remarks.      Mr.   Blake's own
favorite story ol this speech, which
he  often   told   to  friends   afterwards,
] was  as   follows:   One  of  the   officials
I of the  House  who  was  engaged  oil
Hansard and had heard much of the
; speech   was   asked   oner   night   as   he
' wearily  emerg.'d   after   opj   of   hii
i "takes"  how  far  Mr.   Blake  hail got.
��� He  replied:  "He  has  crossed  to  the
I Pacific; he is on his way east; he is
over the divide of the  Koeky  Moun-
tains, coming down grade, brakes off,
all steam nil, and going likj hell."
The length of Mr. Blake's speeches
i used to cause embarrassment to his
political   advisers.    On   one   occasion
he  was  asked   to  cut   down   some  of
1 them   that  Ihey  miyht  be   uore con-
venier.tly   used  'in     pamphlet     form.

eru; despatches, the L ������. of dailv
orders, the holding of courts-martial,
the reception of Arab deputations
have all to take place in this one
ui artment, whieh also serves as the
mess fo.' all the meals of the staff.
I/ ever I snw compressed discomfort
I saw it in that untidy  room.
The borders of the camp have heen
continually enlarged since the beginning of December by the arrival i f
Arab contingents from east, south and
west. A war drum would be heard in
the distance, and gradually a column
would appear over the gent'; undulations of the desert. The Arabs advanced in ragged "fours," the result
of the elementary drill provided by a
couple of Turkish regulars who marched with them. At the head of the col-
umns rode the sheikhs, splendidly
mounted, and crescent flags, tinbrdi i-
ered with Koran texts, waved in the
air.
Amid loud shouts of welcome the
new arrivals would march round the
camp, and then, taking up tlieir bivouac ground, settled down in colored
musses "like garden beds," in the
words of the Gospel narrative. At
other times they ranged themselves
in hiy semi-circles, with the mounted
chiefs in the centre and tin standard-
bearers moving to and fro along the
lines.
The spectacle was really magnificent
in its display of elemental vigor and
p- ��� :ion. Suddenly in resonant tones
sonic Arab would chant the retrain.
"We are warriors, we fea' not death
for our fatherland"; and then tit-
massed ranks raised tlieir rifles and
swords and shouted with one accord,
"We are true sons of our father"���

disappearance of  the  House  of  Com
mons "orchestra."
Thnt orchestra was composed of two
M.P.'s, but nevertheless it was a
three-piece organization. The pair cf
M.P.'s weie Joseph Russell of Kast
Toronto, and Adam Crosby of Halifax. Both went down tu detent, in the
recent election, and so the niuhts are
no longer "filled with music" at the
House of Commons.
Joe Russell made but one or two
speeches, or rather remarks, while
he was in the House, but he made
music���lots of it. He could play two
instruments at once. He had contrived a wire arrangement to hold a
mouth organ between his lips, the
wire passing around his neck. With
his hands he played a banjo.
Adam Crosby was a clever performer on the tin whistle. He could
extract sweet melody from that till
whistle as easily 89 Joe could twang
the banjo. Many a time did they get
together and edify their fellow members with the strains of that good
old Scotch air, "Cock o' the North,"
It was their "piece de resistance."
M.P.'s would wander out into the
corridors looking lor other M.P. 'g
whom they could summon into the
Tory committee room and form an
audience. M.P.'s would ask other
M.P.'s Ior their favorite tunes, and
the orchestra would be asked lo play
"Kvery Kittle Movement." or "Home,
Sweet Home," but "Cock o' the
North" would be thc answer. No matter what was asked for. that orchestra
would crime to the front with the old
reliable "Cock o' the North."
And no it happens that Messrs.
Crosby and Russell are much missed
by their fellow members of the la-t
Parliament who were lucky enough
to get back to Ottawa.

For some time after the turning ofc   wanted   to  see   Mr.   Borden   himself,
��"d looking over the House when Mr.
Foster was not in the chamber, he
walked up and coolly seated himself
in the empty chair next to the Premier. The delegate is a big strapping
specimen of manhood, and Mr. Borden addressed him genially.
t "I'm glad to meet you," he said,
'and I assure you I never saw that

"Thank you," replied the Brantford

It is difficult to estimate the actual

I was, ami Turkish officers who had
means of discovering the enemy's
losses with some degree of accuracy
es''mated that several hundred of the
Italian infuutry and gunners had been
killed and wounded. At any rate, 200
rifles were actually collected and
brought in. Ammunition, boots, helmets, and hats stripped from the dead

And now the time had come for
the chlldien to join in as a whole and
speedily the ribbons were loosed from
the four Maypoles, which with revolving lops, were danced aroun.1 for
some time. Then thirsty little ones
were rejoiced with luscious oranges,
and bais of chocolates and tickets for
the merry-go-round. The vast crowd
which must have numberel some five
or six thousands then gradually dispersed for tea.
