Ert   a discission,   Councillor
seconded    the    motion,   al-
Pdistlnctly opposing any    such
inclllor     Mayne,     in   speaking
Inst the motion, cited the case of
Burnaby school board,   where   a
prse presented his nnme to the
iBr,i   road     to
travel  If it goes through.
"Thle move Is socialism pure and
simple. Tho most popular man in the
-most populated district would get the
nominat'on." he exclaimed. I
'Councillor McDonald spoke ln the
same vein, and cited the result ln
Vancouver, where be had been a councillor formerly.    lie said  that    body
turned lt down by a heavy vote. "Tm
from Missouri, you've got to show
me," he wound up.
No Representative Mandate.
Reeve W*art spoke a few words
from the chair, stating that hi tie
election on January 13, 1912, 383 votes
were cast for the abolition, while 255
were against it. rtowever, as tbere
was a total of 971 votes cast on tbat
day, the figures did not show a representative vote on the question. Ae
far as he was concerned no body or
clique, he thought, could control municipal affairs, as any one district that
attempted such a deal would have tbe
opposition of the rest of the districts.
If a convention was called in order to
select candidates, he could hardly see
where a dark horse could slip in,
On the vote Councillor Madill was
the only aye, while Councillors Britton, McDonald, Fau Vel and Mayne
voted against the proposition. Councillor McGregor, who was present at
the meeting, left before a vote was
Mayne Resigns.
A lively interlude occurred at the
meeting of the hall and grounds committee, Chairman Mayne tendering his
resignation. When asked for a reason
the councillor told hls associates that
he felt liis work in this connection
was not meeting with their approval,
and also lie felt that he had been
sidetracked when the heads of the different committees were apportioned at
the beginning of the year.
"Some cf thc new councillors," said
CduncTllor Mayne, "are at the head of
three committees while as for myself,
I was handed just one."
The' resignation was left on the
table until the next meeting. In the
meantime an effort.,will .b'j made    tc
ve bin* reranalder his decision.
Saving lbe absence of tbe treasurer,
tbere was a full meeting of tbe fifteen
enthusiasts who compose the citizen's
picnic committee at the board of trade
looms last night. As previously announced this hardy annual will be
celebrated upon July 17, and Arrangements have been made wltb tbe C. P.
R. for a steamer capable of carrying
SOW or 750 passengers (as may be decided upon) to come up the river and
take on the crowd who will proceed
to Victoria, returning the same day.
At last night's meeting lt developed
that tbe starting time would be 7 am.,
price of tickets would be $1.50, and
that the return time would be about
10:30 p.m.
The main business of the gathering
wa* the adoption of a badge calculated
to spread envy In the hearts of the
citizens of Victoria. This magnificent
streamer jvill be red In color, nine
inches long by one and three-quarter
Inches wide. It will cost 10 cents, and
will bear the legend "New Westminster, the Harbor City." The latter
phrase is to be very prominently displayed.
Some discussion took place over the
advisability of dropping the prefix
"New," but this was Anally retained.
This evening a memorial will be
presented to the council asking for
the declaration of a civic holiday upon July 17, so as to enable as many
as possible to join ln the joyous event.
While recognizing the claims of business it is hoped that as many as pos
Bible will make the trip, with advantage to themselves and the city from
which they hail.

officers and  men  of tbe  104th  regl-
aent of Canadian militia arrived back
tbls city last night from their   annual camp at Victoria.
Acting Adjutant Captain P. H.
Jniith staled last evening Mujl tbe
Camp was the most successful held ln
fears, the men had been complimented on their work by the D. O. C, and
the officers had also received praise
jfor their efficient methods of training.
"The part played by the 104th in
lie sham battle on Sunday was very
lportant," said Captain Smith. "At
p.m. the regiment which formod
part of tbe defending force, left Macauley (lain and was taken across ��� to
Esquimalt by ferry, ths men marching
from the landing to Oolewood two
liles away. At the Colewood hotel
orders from the main body were received, and then the regiment marched two miles farther along and took
up its position on advantageous
ground near the main body, where it
remained all night.
While occupying thia position    the
lix th  regiment and the 72nd Hlgh-
uders, cf Vancouver, made their at-
but after two furious onslaughts,
lhe (umpires agreed that the skirmish
had gained nothing."
In speaking of the camping ground
t Maeauley's beach, Captain  Smith
lid tliat in his opinion It was    one
the fl��e3t ln the west.   The city of
Victoria nearby had piped the   entire

Carl Olsvick, Nephew of Former New
Weatmlnster Pastor,   Drowned
Off Frederick Island.
Carl Olsvick, of Vancouver, a
fisherman employed on board the halibut steamer Roman, was drowned off
Frederick island, one of the Queen
Charlotte group, on June 26, when the
Ashing dory in which be was working
capsized and precipitated him and a
fellow  fisherman Into  the sound.
Olsvick, and a companion, John
Morrison, had been working In Dory-
No. 9 all morning and were returning
to the steamer when ln crossing ln
front of the Roman they ran foul of
the bow, and their boat turned completely over. Morrison, clinging to
the slimy bottom of the upturned boat,
caught a lifebelt whicli was thrown
him by the mate, but Olsvick sank.
Second Mate Ulsteln, of the Roman,
dived several t'mes in a heroic attempt to save the life of Olsvick, but
his effort? were fruitless.
The unfortunate man was a native
of Sweden, and a nephew of the former Norwegian pastor here, Rev. Mr.
Sand, who is now In Vancouver.     '

Six U. S. Presidential
Candidates Reviewed
The World's Work for Juno con-
��� tains one of the most comprehensive
articles relative to the most prominent
candidatcs now In the field for the
presidency that has yet been put in
The article boglnB with President
Taft, and is followed by an estimate
of Mr. Roosevelt's character, and then
followed by a criticism of Mr. Bryan���
Governor Harmon���Speaker Clark and
Gov. Woodrow Wilson.
The statement of fact3 touching
every one of these candidates and the
estimates of each one as an executive
or statesman or available candidate Is
the most candid and truthful yet published.
Beginning with President Taft, the
editor of the World's Work, Mr. Walter H. Page, writes as follows:
Mr. Taft.
By temperament not suited for
sturdy executive duties, belug too
trustful of those near him and too inaccessible to those who speak plainly
to him; "a good man surrounded by
gentlemen who know exactly what
they want," "meaning well feebly;"
patriotic but indecisive till driven to
anger; compromising by nature���hoping that the Pinchot and Wiley troubles, for example, will blow over; Intellectually lazy till spurred to action
or party and of political procedure is
the aim of things and party loyalty Is
law; without any vision of statesmanship; a common politician of the personally respectable sort, lacking in
prudence because lacking ln knowledge; with a genius fo, blundsrinfe
speech; without hardiness of mind 01
of convictions; ln his race'as a stalk
Ing horse,Or dummy, as everybody
knows but himself, yet a possible nominee by a slip in the game of the managers of the convention; perhaps the
only Democrat whose nomination
would make Republican success certain, whoever be the Republican nominee.
Governor Woodrow Wilson.
A scholar In government, with an
historical and political perspective; a
man of profound convictions, holding
that theie should be no class that
shall receive privileges from the government; regarding boss rule and the
private conduct of public business as.
the worst crimes against political society; trustful of the people, a Democrat in fact; with brief but eminently
successful executive experience (the

amiable and attractive man at close
range, but an inept leader, not knowing the people; a man of policies rather than of fundamental convictions,
with a half confidence in mere party
leaders and a sort of childlike interpretation of party platforms; as
fierce in anger as he is amiable in repose, his smile giving place to violent
speech which sounds as if it were assumed; a man who has not reasoned
out a fundamental economic creed; a
formal minded man thinking clearly by
statutes rather than by principles:
a president of very considerable
achievement, for which he has not received due credit because of his lack
of commanding tones; like a quiet da-
after a cyclone, which seems dull and
heavy because of the wind and fury of
the day before; more unfortunate thar
blameworthy, approved by sufferance
rather than with applause; a pres1

to the witness through an interpreter
so that thc court could understand

was acting stupidly, and Mr. Champagne saye: ' I spoke to him in

said to him: 'Will -you tell me why
you do not answer that question:''

Long List of Honors.
Sir George has probably the longest list of honors possessed by anybody except royal personages. He
'had the Order of Merit, which is possessed Ey very few, and the Grand
Crosses of the-Orders of the Bath, the
Star of India, St. Michael and St.
George, the Indian Empire, and the
Royal Victorian Order. Sir George is
the only individual not of royal blood
who has the Grand Cross of the five-
orders of knighthood, in addition to
medals and clasps innumerable, beginning wilh the Indian Mutiny and end
ing with the South African War.
The story ot the manner in wllich
the distinguished 'officer won his Victoria Cross is interesting.     The Afghans were on a fortified hill, and the
company of the young officer wavered
thinking the job of dislodging them a
forlorn hope.   White tock a rifle from
one of hia   men, crept   forward   and |
shot the leader.     This so intimidated
the enemy and   encouraged   his   men
that tlie position was soon won.
His Self-Pocsession.
Sir George was, during his career,
noted for his self possession, a quality whicli helped to make him the successful soldier he was.     This   same
self-possession   stood    him    in   good
Blead on a recent occasion when   he
was addressing a large    meeting   in
North   London  on "Military   Service
and Preparedness."      In the  heat  of
his argument Sir George went too near
to the edge of the platform���fortunately not a very high one���and fell over.
Disdaining all offers of aid he was on
his feet in an instant, calm and serene
as over. He regained the platform and
proceeded with his discourse thus: "I

Sir Thomas Llpton tells a humorous
story of a Scotchman who wont to a
race meeting for the first time in his
life. The old man's friends persuaded
him to risk a sixpence on a horse���a
40 to 1 chance.
With much trepidation, the Scotchman handed out the sixpence, and,
strange to relate, the horse won.
When the bookmaker handed out a sovereign and sixpence to Sandy, the
latter could not believe his own eyes.
"Do you mean to tell "me I get all
this for my saxpence?" he asked.
"You do," replied the bookmaker.
"Ma conscience!" exclaimed Sandy.
"Tell me, mon, how long this thing
been going on?"
Though Sandy had "greenhorn's
luck" and "picked tho winner" on his
llrst venture, he might not do so again
in 99 t'mes out of 100, as those who
"follow the ponies" could tell him.
The man who wanti to place his "sax-
pences" on a "sure thing" should investigate the Canadian Government's
Annuity System. Information in regard to which may bo obtained at any

T>o Vtao jii-npln of Seattle    ever stop
to think what it would mean to turn
loose the large fund which they have
authorized the port commission to expend?
Do they realize the enormous
amount of useful industrial energy
that would be loosened and quickened
aB a result of the wise and proper use
ef the money they have authorized the
port commission lo expend on harbor terminals?
Do they realize the actual, concrete
advertising benefits to be derived
from a scheme of comprehensive
waterfront improvements?
Do they realize that adequate port
facilities here will encourage thc early
investment of millions of dollars by
��utBidofaf:|i^Seattle enterprises? That
it will mean an expanding commerce?
That it will mean new factories and a
longer and a larger payroll?
It ls time for the people to realize
these things. For all of the whining
and whimpering of a few sly knockers
Seattle is all right; but Seattle is not
goiug ahead as rapidly as the city
should. It is not because of any fundamental weakness. The city is sound
to the core. People may be buying
less than they bought several years
ago; but they are buying what they
actually need, and that is enough to
keep the city going. Besides, they
are saving, instead of spending, the
excess they earn over and above their
actual needs; and that really Is n
wholesome and encouraging oondlt'on,
But v.e need something to stir the
latent energy of the city, something to
appeal to the imagination and rouse
the aggressive spirit of the people of
Seattle, and nothing will do it quicker
or mere efficaciously than will a comprehensive program of port betterments tfctirally under way.
It is t'me to wake tip and go to it.

paid railway employee in ttio United
StateB. tlie ordinary trackman, receives a graater compensation than
many of the railway employes of
France, even those of higher grades
and with responsible duties. The compensation cf railway employees is
from two to three times as high in
the United States as in Italy.
A recent report of the English
Board of Trade cn railway wages
shows that the ave. age weekly pay of
englneinen in the United Kingdom ir
1907 was ?11.17; of firemen, $6.67. In
the same year eng'nemen on American railways received an averagf
weekly compeus'J';T of $25.80, count
ing six days to the week, and firemen $15.24. Recent returns make it
clear that in 1912 enginemen and firemen in the United States are compensated at rates of pay for specific runs
tliat are two, three and four times as
high as '..he corresponding rates on
representative English railways. The
annual compensation of enginemen in
the United States, as reported hy two
representative railway companies
now range from $1100 i n switching
service to over $2S00 In passenger
service, and of firemen from $700 in
switching service to over $1700 in passenger service.
For Continental Europe official returns in requisite detail are not available fcr a later year than 100R. The
salaries and allowances of the typical
engineman in C.i .nanv amounted for

'���No or.�� In this district." nays Mr
Benner, "can estimate the amount of
business the opening of the Panama
Canal will bring here. New Westminster certainly made no mistake in voting on her recent bylaws as she did.
"The greatest problem in connection
with the opening cf the Panama, however, is not how the Pacific Coast will
take care of the new business, but how
she will take care of the population
that will come here. This, to my mind,
will be thc graatest problem the coast
has -ver nad to face. I look to see
thoua&tids of people from Southern
Europe lo'iow the canal to the Pacific
Coast. The Question then will be how
will we assimilate these people. The
majority of these people will not be of
the high intelligence of our people
here now; all their Ideas, customs,
manner of living���everything about
them���will be foreign to us. Will we
be so situated that we can educate
them up to our standard of living or
will these people still continue to fol-1
low their old habits and mode cf life? Coldicott Blk,
Right now there are various societies
in San Francisco and other places for
the uplift of people whom they particularly deal with who are making
preparations for the care of thousands
of people annually after the canal is
opened, wher3 as they used to make
provisions for two hundred annually.
The Eastern StateB now has certain
nationalities In large number* In New-
York City and other places whom they
have not successfully assimilated,
Will the same condition prevail here
a few days after the canal Is opened?

In Its sport columns, headed
"Lacrosse Jottings," the Vancouver
News-Advertiser yesterday came out
with a big splurge about the heavy
checking of the Salmon Bellies. Local
fans came to the conclusion after the
game a week ago, that all the Terminal City scribes had taken a tumble
on to the situation and would give
credit where credit was due.
Not so, however, with the News-
Advertiser, and the thousands of fans
who attended the game at Recreation
park on Monday have looked with
ridicule upon the partial account of
the game which appeared yesterday
njovj'ng in the Vancouver sheet.
It is nothing less than an insult to
practically Insinuate that Referee
Turnbull turned his eyes away from
���OOnei where Westminster players
were pulling olT rough stuff. Alex has
not played the game and not benefited
by it. It is a safe guess that
tliere is no official in the province today who handles the whlBtle so impartially as he does.
Both the commissioners, representing the lower mainland, were spectators at the game and It ls practically
a sure bet that their report, If one Is
necessary, will give credit to the
official work of Referee Turnbull.
The N. W. R. A. had another good
day at the rifle ranges on Saturday,
Mr. C. Crooks getting the weekly competition spoon, und Mr. H. Lindahl getting a "possible'' spoon at the 200-
yard range.
The score:

After the regular firing the members Indulged In a little "rapid flre"
practice at the 500-yard range, the target being exposed for one minute, and
the contestant having seven shots to
place in that time. Mr. Sloan finished
first witb 28 out of a possible 35, and
had eight seconds to spare.

Have you ever realized that il you

Hughes in Tbronto Globe, And for
the one hundred and fifty miles north
of Haileybury there are settlers from
the bii: barns and wide clearings at
New Liskeard to the logs shacks and
tl.e holes in the forest at Cochrane?
Where tbi the people come from

As the north reckons, Ertglehsrt Is,
an old settlement, and therefore it is
to be expected that there vritl be some
\ irl-,.   ItomuH In %txe  vie&ntty.    Not -wl\l
you be dU&ppotixtea.   Bon* years ago
an English couple, the husband a
gardener in an Kngiish country house,
set:fed on one of the concession lines
bet-ween Knglehart and Charlton.
The individuality of the man is re-
fleeted very closely in the character
of the house, the trim, well-kept lawn
in front, without which to a certain
type of Midlander no house is a
home. Opposite him lives a German
family with a quiverful of children,
raising prodigious amounts of onion
and cabbage, and in a roomy, go-as-
you-please domicile.
Nearly eighty miles north the Pullman cars attached to the T. & N. ().
trains four times a day pass within
view of the log shack of yet another
German settler. A year or two ago
he came here from Brazil, where a
great number of Teutons are seeking
"a place in the sun." However, this
particular family found that it was
quite possible to get even too much
sun, particularly when it is combined
with malaria, and they jumped clear
across a continent to northern Ontario. The good wife in the middle
oi winter sometimes sighs for thn
langorous heat of South America, but
the husband last year raised the
charnpion crop of nats along the T. &
N. O. and will certainly stay with
the country for some time to come.
In the little settlement of Homer
there lives a German-Canadian, Sigis-
inund Freiburger. He built the log
house and has lived in it; he has
cleared the land around it and raised
crops on it; yet on the books of the
Ontario Government lis name cannot
be tound, and legally he hns no right
to either the clearing or the home.
It ia part of the burden of the settlers in Homer, this uncertainty of
tenure of land.
It is work for a man, this settlement of the north in the Arctic cold
of the midwinter day, when the settler earns his^bread cutting out spruce
for pulpwood waist-deep in snow; in
the forcing-house heat oi the" spring,
when the winter roads have gone and
the cattle must be fed with grain
brought in, on the settler's back,
over a swamp trail where a horse
would founder; in the early summer,
when the -blacktly and the' mosquito
make life a burden; in the late summer, when the bush fires flame in the
sky; in the fall, the best time of all
the year, when man and nature are
preparing for the long hibernation.
And why all this travail and heavy
labor? For the landless, doKarlcss
man, a home and a stretch of land
that he acknowledges no man's right
to walk on but himself; for a place
where his children can run abroad
without inhaling the dust nf tho
streets. Little it may seem to those
reasonably well to de, but, oh. how
infinitely to be desired by the thousands of town dwellers in the bye-
,streets where the weekly salary is
regularly eaten up by the weekly expenditure, and where the future holds
out no hope oi protection ior a rainy

Canadians now have their flrst gold
coinage���that is, those who are for>
tunate  enough to get'hold of them,
for no doubt the gold coins will prove
shy and elusive as always have been
the silver ones or the paper currency.
Will our flve  and  ten  dollar gold
pieces come into as common use as
prevails in the Old Gountry with respect  to    sovereigns    Bnd  half-sovereigns?   Possibly nott. for some time
at any rate, because this generation
of Canadians is not accustomed1 to car��
ry any considerable amount- of money
in  coins.    The  Englishman  has  his-
neat tittle coin-case, and it is an ordir
nary practice for him to meet- current
expenditure by paying- ouV gold.   Tha
only coin* w\U\ which-most Canadian*
are  tainiiiar   are  thoao- ol. eiiv��r,  and
we only use them as- "smalV change.
When small change will nob pay tlte
bill we use the notes: of ttie Dominion
Up   to   four  dollars,   and  bank,  notes
for larger amounts..
A use of our new gold coins wonld
possess certain advantages, one being
its cleanness. The filthiness ot much
of our paper currency- is notorious. It
has been complained' of time and time
again, and several Ministers of Finance, Mr. Fielding in particular, promised to do something to drive dirty
paper money oi��t of circulation. The
promises have not been fulfilled, and
there seems to be more filthy bills in
circulation this year tban ever before.
Gold will be elean, but it is heavy,
and although not a bit harder to
spend than a bank note, it is easier
to lose.
However, there will be seme demand
for gold, and the demand will increase, and its use will increase as
the people become mora accustomed
to the prettiest money in the world.
Any way, it is a matter of legitimate
pride that hereafter the demand of
the Canadian people for gold coins
will be supplied by a Canadian gold
There is one thing which the Mint
might do to good advantage in imitation of a determination just arrived
at across the- border. It might make
it possible for us to sub-divide equally
the live-cent and the twenty-flve cent
pieces of our present coinage. It is
undeniably hard on our poor people
that they should have to sacrifice the
half-cent in paying three cents instead of two and a half, and thirteen
instead oi twelve and a half, as is
often the case in making their tiny
purchases at the stores. There is no
reason why we should not have a half-
cent coin for the convenience of shoppers. It will be found on enquiry
that the approach of civilization generally demands subdivision of the currency coinage. There was a time when
two bits, or twenty-five cents, roughly
speaking, was the lowest coin in use,
west of the Great Lakes. Until quit!
recently one bit, or ten centa, was
the unit nf smallness.. Following the
civilization the railways brought, one
rent has now become the smallest coin
found in the West. It is fully time
that we had half cents for the use nl
i our more crowded population. We
i cannot, however, see the'necessity of
I adopting the Chinese plan of punching
i a hole in the half-cent, as is likely to
be the case elsewhere. Our ladies are
1 unlikely to carry their copiers ihrcu h

The picture test was first demonstrated In America at Clark university
by the pioneer fn this field, Professor
William Stern ot the University of
Breslnu. At this time two unusually
intelligent children, a boy and n girl
In tbe upper grammar grades of tbe
Worcester schools, were shown separately for the period of a minute a
colored picture entitled the "Bauer-
etube." giving ttw interior qf n German peasants butne. Among otber
details is seen a table ut which a man
find n hoy nre sealed, while a woman
fs standing.
The mnu hns removed hls coat, nnd
tils bright red rest Is clearly exposed
to view. The boy Ih sitting on n bench,
bis bare feet not quite touching tbe
floor. The woman wears a brilliant
red skirt, over which Is a blue-green
apron She bus 11 yellow shawl over
ber shoulders.
Near  by   Is  n   cradle  of  (lie  same
Btriklng blue green as the apron.    At
the rear ot (he room Is n bed, and Bret
It hang iljrei1 pl'diee.   These picture!
depict   fnnjtiinpo.s.   and   In  one  Is  4
Jong avenue ot trees.    At the foot of
J.he bed Is a   window  through   which
nothing is risible except a brunch of a
tree.   Near fhe window Is a clock wltb
"the pendulum swung to one side. The
bands point to exactly half past 12.
'ill of tbe details of lbe picture are extremely clear.
��, The children examined by Slern had
an opportunity In tbe minute allowed
tor tbe examination of (be picture to
study It In some detail.    Tbey  knew
tbat tbey were to he tested Immediately on what they  hnd seen.    Had

dence that even at tiiat period the art
of bottle-making was by no means in
its infancy.
The early history of the bottle is,
as a matter of fnct, somewhat shrouded in mystery, for the reason doubtless thai the true bottle has never
been a thing of great beauty except
in rare instances, but rather a humble vessel ol no particular intrinsic
In these days glass bottlas are turned out in enormous quantities. They
are of all sorts, sizes and descriptions. In the manufacture of the ordinary glass bottle of commerce sand
soap boilers' waste, brick clay or oth
er material, according to locality, is
When run down into a molten mass
the product is skimmed and the first
operator,   known   as   the   "gatherer,"
takes   a   little   of   the   glass   on   the
end of a heated pipe.   When this has
cooled   somewhat  he   again   clips   his
pipe into the glass, having "gathered"
in   the   two   dips   sufficient   material
whereof  to   make  a   bottle.    This  he
hands  to  the  "blower,"  who,  as  he
blows through the tube, rolls the product on  a  stone,  thereby  fashioning
the bottle neck.   The roughly shaped
mass is then placed in a mil and the
operator continues  to ��� blow  until  he
has brought it to tlie required form.
The bottle is now passed to the finisher, who, by touching ths neck with
a small  hit of iron dipped in  water,
completely   severs   it   from   the   pi[H?.
He  attaches  the  pontee,  an  iron  instrument   tipped   with   molten   glass,
to the bottom of the bott!e. thus piv-
irg it {be usual rounded shape.   Ibe
next  atep  is  to   warm   the   bottle  at
"ie   furnace,    The   finisher   takea   a,
small quantity 01 the product on what
is known as a ring iron and. timiine
it around the mouth, forms the ring
seen   at   the   top   of   the   neck.     He
trims the neck  with  shears.    In  Ihe
centre of one blade of the shears is a
piece   of   brass   tapered   like   a   cork
which  forms  the inner mouth,  whils
the other blade lijs a piece of brass
fastened to it for the purpose of shaping  the   ring.    An   assistant   lifts  the
completed  bottle  on  a fork  and  it is
then   taken   to   tie   annealing   arch,
which   contains   about  ten   nr   twelve
gross  of  bottles   placed  in   bins  one
above the other.
The above processes are those employed in the making of even the
cheapest and most ordinary bottles
It may be imagined with what care
and labor the workers operate to produce the bottles of the finest grade.

M. Loubet, who, like'liim, had a leng
innings as President of the Senate
hefore he attained the highest rank
that the nation could confer.
M. Loubet, on his departure from
the palace in the Faubourg Saint
Honore, settled in a flat at No. 5 Rue
Dante, a new house, with all modern
comforts, not far from Notre Dame,
and M. Fallieres has decided on installing himself in an apartment of
a house that be owns on the Boulevard Saint Germain, also situated on
the "rive gauche."
"It is quite a central position,"
as he has explained to intimate
friends. "I sliall have the Metropolitan Railway and every means of communication at my very door, and I
shall he within easy access of the
Chamlier and the Senate." Republican simplicity will, in fact, be the
rule with him as with his predecessor.
"The flat which M. Fallieres is reserving for himself consir'i of a salon, a dining-room, a study and three
tied chambers���just the ordinary suite
���and he will content himself with a;
housemaid, as he seems to be as adverse to liaving 11 man to wait or��
him as was Victor Hugo, who could
never tolerate a butler or a valet.
M. Fallieres, as may be added, has
taken a very wise precaution.
Since noisy neighbors are the chief
drawback to a Paris flat, he has made
the tenants who occupy tho apartt
ments immediately above and beiow
the one which he has selected for,
himself prorai 1 in their leases that
they will not keep any animals or
play the piano from morning till'
night, or tor that matter, from night
to nr rning.
It is wonderful how men like \f.
Fallieres and M. Loubet can adapt
themselves to such a change in theiij
positions. To exchange a palace for
a quiet flat ancl to be as happy in
the new life as one has been in the
old denotes a strength and a simplicity of character which are really
Since he left the Elysee M. Loubet
has found a field of useful activity,
without obtruding himself in the
slightest degree, and so. no doubt,
will it be with M. Fallieres. When'
he was President of the Senate M.
Loubet was fond of taking a morning
ride in an omnibus, and since his
removal to the Rue Dante cne often
meets him enjo: ir.g a constitutional
on the quays.
When he was President of the republic he went almost daily to the
Bois, driving u pair of fine hlack
horses, and now he is satisfied with
more homely rn?ans of locomotion. M..
Fallier- s already talks of patronizing
the "Nord-Bud" Railway, and hints
at the mo lest auto bus. Yet they both
must have derived some well deserved material profit from their sojounu

There Were Some Differences Be- j
* tween It and tbe First.
anything  of  my���my
Tbey met ln the sweet summer time,
trhen the days were long, and slnctf
neither of them bad anything to do
they filled the time wltb making lore.
Bat long as the days were tbey were
oot long enough for their loremaklng.
lAt least the houra between their waking nnd going to sleep seemed Inadequate to tbe purpose.
i Tbe most fervent loremaklng Is usually between those who bare no right
to love or cannot afford to love. These
two belonged to tbe latter class. He
(was not yet of nge, would have no
fortune when he came of age and thus
far bad made no move to secure even
B competence.
But Rogers was full of pluck and
enthusiasm nnd felt tbat for her he
could make several fortunes. He received nn offer of a position on tbe
Pacific coast and accepted IL She was
to wait for blm.
"Goodby," said Rogers. "Remember
your promise.. You are to wait for me
till I am ready to come bnck for you."
"I will wait for you, but ns to your
coming back for nie tbat is very uncertain. You are going clear across
the continent >'ou aay yourself thnt
you do not deem It safe to marry before you have an assured Income besides something laid up. 1 agree with
you. For us who have nothing to marry on and attempt to bring up a family
would be an Injustice to tbat family.
Better not to be born at all than to
struggle among those not equipped to
. tight the battle ot life."
������Yqu are u thoughtful girl."
I  "Goodby."
Rogers went to California. He was
twenty yenrs old. nnd the girl he expected to wait for blm wns the same
age He had good pluck, was honorable and would scorn to accept anything be was not entitled to from uny
' one. Rut he wus young, nnd Ibe young

after n lopse of two decades. But In

.\s it wns. he met with n pleasant sur
prise. The lndy seemed scarcely to
hnve chanced Ht all. The tlniriilnr part
it It nil was that he was tint eon
acinus of iinilug cliauged himself. It
did uot occur lo him that should his
former love meet him without having
tieen told who he was sbe would- not
recognize blm.
"Dear me." he exclaimed, "you hnve
���cnncl.v etinnged nt nil!"
"Nor yon," she snld considerately.
"And yet." he went on. holding her
bnnil In hls nnd looking at her fixedly,
"you nre clumped. There Is something
-I couldn't tell whnt It Is-thnt Is different from the girl 1 lefl yean agi*."
"Have I  lost
good looks?"   1	
"On tbe contrary. I think you bave
gained in comeliness. As to yc*itli, you
don't seem to have added hair a dozen
years to wbat you were wben I left
you.   You don't look over thirty."
At this tbe lndy cast down ber eyes
and repressed nu expression of dissatisfaction.
Of course a meeting between two
lovers one of whom bad beeu married
and widowed was not tbe same as It
would bave beeu bad they lived in tbe
meanwhile for eacb other. Rogers
saw at once that be could not begin
where be bad left off. There must be
a new courtship���not tbat he needed
one himself; be wns ready to take bis
love right into bis arms, aa be bad
done tbe day be left ber, but be bad
the good sense to realize that it bad
been far different with tbe widow.
Not only bad sbe lived a long wblle
wltb ber husband and must get used
to new conditions, but It Is woman's
nature to desire a courtship before a
Indeed, tbe meeting bad all tbe novelty of u new affair. Whenever Rogers would go back to their past intimacy tbe widow would say: "You
must remember that In my marriage
my engagement with you was obliterated. Since i lien it has had no existence for me. tbougb It may bnve
been continued for you. This is not
tbe Bame connection. Let us treat It
as If we had never met before."
Rogers could not but acknowledge
the reasonableness of tbis. in one way
It pained, In another it pleased blm.
It reminded blm that bis love hud been
possessed by another, but there wus a
freshness lu It that could not be expected from the renewal of nn affair
in middle life witb an old flame. His
courtship progressed very satisfactorily. He was an exuberant lover and
several times came very near spoiling
It all by attempting to go too fast
Then, too, there were the usual lovers'
spats. Tbougb more mature, Delia was
just as sensitive ns to the way sbe was
treated as during tbeir previous affair,
and Rogers had the same difficulty In
bringing her around as before. Rut
while be showed an experience of
years In the treatment of women she
seemed us wayward as when a girl.
This surprised her lover, but be attributed it to tbe fact that she bad tbe
experience of only one man, wblle he
bad been thrown In wltb a great variety of women.
Considering that they bnd been engaged before, a long courtship tvus required for Rogers lo win tbe second
time. Indeed, several times he was
tempted to give up the struggle. Finally, thinking It would lie well to assume a more Independent uttitude, be

Our Ancestors Had a Lore Not to D��
Primitive, tentative nnj slow a��
were the old world methods of foretelling the weather there can be no
doubt that they had a great charm
of their own. and gave to tliose wlin
practiced them more inducement tn
study nature at first baud than do
the scientific, up-to-date prophesies
of the meteorological office.
Perhaps for purposes of practical
utility the simple weather lore of um
British ancestors did not fall so very
short of the mora advanced knowl-
edga of to-day.
On one point all old-world weather
lore is unanimous. It is the advantage that results to health and crop*
from liaving seasonable weather. "A
winter spring is not worth a pin" waa
an axiom in those days.
January was expected to he cold,
and everyone, judging by the proverbial wisdom of the times, was resigned to it. Bitterly cold too it must
have been if we ara to believe thnt
"Janvier will freeze the pot on the
fire" and that "as the days lengthens
tin cold strengthens." Could it, we
wondei, have been any consolation
t'i freezing men and shivering children to rememlrr that "A green Yule
makes a fat Churchyard" or that "in
a year of snow the fruit will prow?"
February also was looked, on as es-
Bcntiully a winter month, As its pro-
\ iuce was "to ti I lhe dyke either with
tha black or white" tliere was ab-
vl ;s!y nothing for it to do but t'i
rain or anow. If it wearied of its
role and occasionally, by wav of novelty, brought a few warm days to a
frost-bound world its only recompense was the ungrateful title of
"doi-'ble-fticrd February." A clear
condemnation of such temporary alleviation! Shakespeare uses this expression In "Much Ado About Nothing," "Good Morrow, Benedict. Why.
what's the matter that ynu have such(
a February face? So full of frost and
storm uud cloudiness."
North of the Tweed (we can readi'.,'
believe it) no pretentions to fine weather were permitted to February. "A'
i llie months in the year curse a tn'.r
Februeer" says one Scotch proverb
and another declares:
"February  an   be  ye  fair

In most striking contrast to our
modern notions March, in proverbial
wisdom, is depicted as rather a pleasant sort of month. Rough and ready.
perhaps, and a trifle over fond of
bluster, but on the whole a good sort
with his hands full of benefits, and
not altogether an unpleasant companion. His is a (.'ry humor snd naturally one fully appreciated after the
