Leader of Ontario Liberals Regrets Dominion's Aid Is not
Greater-Britain Still Has to Man and Maintain Ships-
Says Canada Is Able to do Both-Would Revert to Naval
Agreement of 1911-Take Responsibility for Pacific.
Gait, Ont., Dec. 6.���N. W. Rowell,
K.C, leader of the Ontario Liberal
party, today addressed the Gait club,
a non-political organization on "Canadian Autonomy and Imperial  Duty.'
Speaking of Mr. Bordeu's naval pronouncement, Mr. Rowell said: "In
view of the great burden Great Britain
now carrying in naval defence,
burden involving the gift of her sons
to man her ships, as well as of her
money to maintain them, In view ol
the great demands on the British exchequer for money to carry out im
portant schemes of social reform, 1
cannot but confess my own great personal regret that Canada ts not manning and maintaining, as well as giving these dreadnoughts.
Take Responsibilities.
"Why should we impose on the British people and the British exchequer
the obligation of manning and maintaining ships, when Canada is well
able to do so herself? In view of
the statemeut that Great Britain has
neen compelled to withdraw her naval
forces at the center and that Bhe n
not able to maintain naval forces
either In the north Atlantic or In the
north Pacific, where admittedly such
forces sre needed, I cannot hut express
my personal regret that Canada is
not now undertaking to carry out the
naval agreement ot 1911 between
Great Britain, Canada and Australia,
whereby Canada assumes the responsibility for providing the forces necessary, both in ships and in men, to
protect these naval bases; to fly the
white ensign on these seas; to protect
the trade routes as well as the honor
and integrity of the empire, Just as
Australia is now doing ln Australian
Have Been Long Enough.
"For over, 25 yearB Great Britain
has been asking us to take part in the
naval defence of the empire. Surely
the people of Canada have had time
enough to make up their minds as to
what our r.aval policy would be. Sure
ly It is not necessary to defer longer
a statement of this policy.
"The whole of the address of thr
prime minister was a most cogent argument against further delay and as a
Canadian citizen, may I express the
earnest hope that the government will
see its way clear before the present
bill goes through the house to undertake the manning and maintaining of
the ships which it Is proposed to build
and definitely to assume the responsibility on behalf cf Canada of protecting the naval bases of the north Atlantic and north Pacific as provided in
the terms of the naval agreement of

Synchronising with announcements

Premier Commends Canada's Magnificent Response to Call of Imperial Defsnce.
Wellington, N.Z.. Dec. 6.���Speaking
tonight at Lawrence, the premier,.
Thomas McKeuzIe, declared that Canada's proposal to add thre powerful
battleships to the naval defence ot
Great Britain was a splendid one���
'h.n r-anada had risen to the occasion
lr  i"  magnificent  manner.
He said NeW Zealand's contribution
to the Imperial navy was assured;
that several warships would be given,
but they would not be fighting ships
as compared to battleships.
He said that a representative of tha
government, Hon. Allen, would visit
England shortly and confer with th��
naval authorities and when he re-
���urnid the local government would
declare lta naval policy. If more than
naval assistance was needed he asserted New Zealand would readily respond.

Inhabitants of a North African Town
Live In Cavss.
It is interesting to hear and know
about some sections of the world of
which seldom nny mention is made.
A writer tr��veling through southern
Tunis in Northern Alrica came across
many cavs dwellings. The troglodytes who live in them to-day are
descendants of the men whi lived in
similar caves when the country was
part of the Roman Empire. The traveler describes his visit to the region
in thia manner:
"Imagine arriving at a town of
5.000 people and not seeing a single
house; only a picturesque mosque
built since the French occupation.
There are 20,000-people in the district,
of which this town of Matmata is
the chief city. All of them are troglodytes.
"There is, first of all, a great hole
dug in the earth; the average hole is
perhaps 28 feet deep and 45 or 50 feet
in circumference. This hole is used
as a pstio, or courtyard. Numerous
caves dug in the walls serve as living
rooms, chambers and storehouses.
"One enters these dwellings by
means of a passageway tunneled
through earth or rock. Some of the
ceilings are roughly ornamented with
Arabic designs cut in low relief in
the rock, and the dates when the
dwellings were dug. None seems to
gn back more than a hundred years.
The earlier troglodytes were all
"climbing iroglodytes," dwelling in
caves in the mountains.  ..
"WalkinR through the passage into
the circular courtyard, open to the
sk", one sees large caves cut into the
sides, that serv2 as grain storehouses.
Thera are also caves here for goats,
sheep, and donkeys. A square trough
of masonry pipes the rain water into
a large cistern in the centre of the
courtyard. It rains rnrely, but when
it rains, it pours, and every drop ol
water is carefully preserved���so carefully that horses and animals are
watered "nly once every 24 hours, and
th?n get not all they want.
"Sheik Ferdjnni asks us to enter. A
young man burns a handful of dry
esparto-grass, which flames up and
shows us tlie steps and turns of the
"The courtyard is lull of children.
At least a down from 2 to 12 years
old are curiously watching us.
"Pushing open a door of palm Iree
boards, we tnter the sheik's cave. It
was whitewashed. To the left is n
wooden eh"st and a gun, one of mnny.
Pinck of the gun is a shelf cut out of
thi rock, and and oil lamp standing
on it���the shape dating hack to Greek
and Roman days. There is also a
bedstead cut out of the rock, and on
it nr,> comfortable mattresses filled
with wool, and native blankets or
rugs. Above the bedst"sd is a cupboard.
"The wive? of t'.ie sheik live in n
cavj similar to tlvs. nnd so do Iheir
sons, and their wives and children.
The question of rent is not of great
importance. Hollowing nut snother
cave is not a very difficult task."

which appeared again on the litle

silk was chosen to work this smocking nnd the result wns not ouly a
thoroughly practical gown, but an artistic and pretty one as well.
The English smocked blouses for the

they nre wonderfully good looking.

"There is a regrettable modern tendency to disrespect the difficulties of
some of the great Alps, especially
those whose ascents have appealed to
popular favor. The Wetternorn, or
Storm peak, that huge rock embattled
sentinel of the Grindelwald giants, is
the most notorious example of this,"
writes George D. Abraham in The
Pall Mall Magazine. "Truly even on
mountains 'familiarity breeds contempt.' It has been lightly named 'the
Ladies' peak,' but with tar too terrible frequency a fearful revenge ha.��
been extorted; its death roll is equalled hy few of the Alps.
"The following tragedy of 1908 is
typical of many others. A young
English lady, aided by the best of
guides, mado one of the earliest ascents of the season and innocently left
a silken handkerchief fluttering in
the summit breezes. This wss noticed through the large telescope at
Grindelwald, and a Swiss workman,
roused by the sight, wsgered forthwith that he would bring down the
trophy  single handed.
"He won the wsger, but lost his
life in the winning. Common sense
prevailed to the extent of taking a
companion as inexperienced ss himself, and fortune smiled upon theni
until they almost reached the foot ot
the Great Couloir on their return.
There the young workman untied
ffiim the rope and, waving the trophy
of success in his hand, started to
glissade direct down the snow slope
to the glacier.
"The friend's example and advice
to follow the usual descent hy the
rocks at the side of the couloir were
utterly disregarded. At express speed
lie rushed downward until suddenly
he saw the end of the couloir overhanging nothingness and the glacier
some hundreds of feet below. It was
too Inte. With a shriek of warning
to his friend he dashed outward over
the edge into space and eternity. The
next day tlie remains were recovered.
In his right hand the unfortunate victim of Ills own folly clutched the
handkerchief; he brought it down to
10 acres on Main road, all cleared, planted in assorted fruits.

"I suppose the disappearance of the
true Cockney accent and vocabulary
is partly due to our Influence," said
an East Eud schoolmaster.
"Personally, 1 regret the loss of Its
peculiar vocalbulary, though the mod-
-m accent pleases my own ears much
belter than the Cockney accent. But
the disuse of a word Is a blow to anyone who has been accustomed to employ or hear it. The Introuctlon of
modern schooling is seriously Impair
Ing the Cockney vocabulary and practically eliminating the Cockney accent from the Street*. Such a tnn
Cockney word as 'skelllngton' for
'skeleton' Is hardly used at all now.
We schoolmasters have no longer any
occasion to prick up our ears In order to understand what our boys and
girls say."

Conservative     Orflan    Tremendously
Impressed���Dally   News   Indulges
In  Severe Criticism.
London, Dec. 6.���The London morning papers, more especially the Conservative organs, are tremendously
Impressed not only by what Is characterised as Canada's splendid contribution to Great Britain's naval power
but by the frank avowal of the perii
the Empire stands In by the rapid
growth of rival navies, as pointed out
in the naval memorandum published
In London and referred to In Premier
Borden's speech.
The Telegraph say: "Canada has
Bpoken. What response shall we In
the Motherland make of her unique
and magnificent tribute to the IdealB
of peace and freedom?"
The Morning Post, expressing pro
found gratitude to Canada for her
magnificent evidence of loyalty and
faith In the Empire, sayB: "if thi
reciprocity agreement with the United
BtatPs had been carried out, this
great contribution would never havr
been proposed."
Tho Standard says: "If the Cana
dlan Parliament accepts the proposals
we shall enter In to a new era of hop,>
and security, supported by the knowl
edge that it Is not an Island Kingdom
but a World Empire with whicii
Great Britain's enemies will have tt
Most of the other papers are elml
larly euiofflstlc. The Dally News, rep
resenting the Little Navy party, how
ever, indulges in severe criticism. It
doubts whether the urgency is so extreme, and fears that the political
consequences will be very grave. It
says: "Unless there ls a correspond
Ing reduction In the British prograrr
of naval construction Canada's g'f
will get to be a burden for the main-
It-nance of the Canadian ships." The
paper asks how the new development
is to be reconciled with the preserva
tlon of Imperlal control over the foreign policy. Altogether, It thinks It u
most hazardous step.
The Times heartily approves of the
appointment of a Canadian minister
as a member of the Imperlal Defence
Committee, and adds: "Similar ap
pointments by the other Dominions
would be equally welcome, for they
mean more than the creation of
navies or the contribution of ships."
Beresford Talks.
I/ondon, Dec. 6.���Lord Charles Beresford. speaking to a Daily Express
representative on the Canadian nava'
proposals, says:
"What I recommended that the Dominion do was to defend their end of
the  trade routeB  with   stronp   naval
bases, mines, torpedo boat destroyers
and ligltt cruisers.     The trade routes j
are unprotected and now our  danger
is starvation, not Invasion.   The coun- ]
try was deceived and fooled by state-1
ments retarding the Dreadnoughts of j
���other nations.    We were Insulted   bv j
tielng told a Dreadnought could   sink
three whole fleets.    The peopU- sp-ak
of    nothing   hut   Dreadnoughts, quite |
forgetting thnt a fleet Ib composed of I
a varletv or units, any one  tit which \
being defective or   short,   jeopardizes j
the whole."
obeyed by Servia seems now probable |
enough always provided the civil authorities   at    Belgrade   continue    to
wield the supreme power, for yester-
day the semi-official   Servian  organ,
Samouprava, announced  the  decision ]
of the government to submit unhesl
tatlngly to Europe's decision.

Net Afraid of Man.
In Japan fireflies are more than mere
beetles. They are Cupid's light to
guide lovers, souls of ancient soldiers,
tbe devil's snare to tempt wanderers
to death. In tbeir light of magic gold
with a tint of emerald green the Japanese see stars of hope, sorrows of
broken hearts, tbe everlasting spirits
of warriors, but, most of all, the Joys
of lore aod lovers.
Whenever tbey see the glimmering
faint green light of fireflies ho wring
over tbe stream running into tbe dark
ness of night the Japunese dream of
love and loving hearts. Tbe light of
fireflies Is the guide of lovers going
aloug tbe narrow paths to meet tbeir
Tbe Japanese fireflies sre mucb larger and give brighter and more steady
light tban those seen ln Europe or
Amerlcn. In old days many poor Japanese students, unable to buy candles,
were wont to gather fireflies In a bag
aud read their books by tbeir light
The Hotaru kago iflrefly cage), made
of flue laces, placed on the veranda
gives almost as bright a light as tbe
large stone lantern, but mucb more

Fireflies are plentiful everywhere In

human beings and wlll often alight
upon the dress aud even oo the balr

fil"s fly Into one's pockets or sleeves. -

Oiant Sharks.
While the whale Is regarded as the
largest of creatures that haunt tbe sea.
there are some sharks that can be
compared In size wltb the former animals. These giant sharks, however,
nre very rare and arc known under
the nnme of the great whale shark and
the basking shark. The former, which
attnlns a length of fifty feet Is found
off the coast of India. Peru and Ixiwer
California. The latter's most favorite
haunt Is tbe Arctic ocean, but It Is
slso found near the grent whale shark
These monsters, curiously enough, are
quite harmless. Their teeth are very
small, ond they feed on tiny matter
that floats on the ��urfa<ie of the sea.

London, Dec. 6.���In the Dally Telegraph, Dr. Dillon, writing from Vienna, takes a hopeful view of the
peace situation and Insists that all his
optimistic prophesies are being verified. Casting bis eye aver the Balkans, hc reaches this conclusion:
"From what haa come to my knowledge lately, I am firmly of the opinion Ihat little will remain of the Bai
ikon coalition within twelve months
after the conclusion off peace, and
that Bulgaria, Turkey and Roumania

Commenting upon the probable action of the peace conference ln London -and the partition elf Turkey, he
goes dull

The more one studies the proposals
concerning naval defence, which at
long last have now been given to the
���country, the more ls one impressed
-with their present and ultimate efficiency.
No one in nritish Columbia will
���deny that as a nation it is high time
that Canada adopted some efficient
naval pollcy. We have writhed ioc
long under the delay now, we trust
.soon to be ended.
The nature of this naval defence
has all along been the bone of contcn
tion over which Liberal, Conservative
aud Nationalist alike have wrangled.
Now, if each of us asks himself whal
he would do were he contemplating
the launching of some great scheme
concerning which he knew little, his
course would undoubtedly be that ol
applying to an expert who did.
This course, in brief, is what the
���present government have followed.
True, it has been done before, but
the result of not following the advice
then tendered is known to all, and
meanwhile time has not stood still.

with emergencies as we are with

Therefore, for the presenl. our duty
Is to do as our brothers in Now Zealand have done, namely to take the advice of the Admiralty, to station our
ships where they are most needed nt
present, and to rest assured that .we
have done our duty for that present.
Our ultimate duty is to build our
own navy and to man our own fleets

llndon, Dec. 6.���Following the
Times' editorial of the success of the
strikes engineered during the past
year by the Trades' and Labor council, the report of the board of trade,
which wae issued today, shows that
the exact number who actively participated ln strikes in 1911 were 961,-
980 which ls a record.
The labor department reports also
that 138 profit-sharing schemes,
which Involved some 160,000 workers,
have survived out of 300 which have
been attempted since 1894.
Commenting on the board of trade's
report, the London newspapers anticipate considerable activity ln trade
immediately following the establishment of peace in Europe. British
trade at the present ls enjoying unbounded and unprecedented prosper
ity, and the business year book predicts that 1913 will see industries feverish and active.
There will be a big boom for a
time, and the demand for food sup
ply, clothes, and general materials
will be In excess to the supply. The
general prediction also is that all the
prices will be high, and wages good
while there will only be a minimum
of unemployed.
Industrial undertakings should
show an exceptional profit.
Lord Kitchener Introduces Motor Cars

Alexandria, Kgypt, Dec. 6.���Egypt
has, indeed, became a country of contrasts, for as visitors to Cairo and Alexandria know full well, camels and
motor cars, heavily-laden donkeys and
fashionable victorias Jostle each other
on their way through the streets.
Owing to the energy of Lord Kitchener the roads are steadily being improved and the completion of the road
from Alexandria to Cairo has rendered the motor car as usual a means of
conveyance In Egypt as in other coun
It is not, however, only for pleas
ure that they are used, for Lord Kitchener has introduced the motor car
and motorcycle into the government
service. Upper and Lower Egypt ar?
divided into well defined areas called
circles of irrigation and the inspector
of each circle now goes on his rounds
in a light motor car while his Junior
assistants are provided with motorcycles.

Would Havs Some   Changea, Though
In   Borden's  Policy���Canadian
Men Only on Vessels.
London, Dec. 6.���Bernard Shaw, ths
famous playwright and Socialist, gave
the Canadian Associated Press the following opinion:
'Premier Borden's scheme for
building up a navy for Canada by putting out her ships to nurse with the
British fleet at the expense of the
British taxpayers until the time comes
for the recalling of them to form au
Independent navy for the Dominion,
seemB to me to be clever and altogether a good bargain for Canada, but
for obvious reasons. Premier Borden
should stipulate that after sufficient
delay to allow for necessary training,
the Canadian ships shall have exclusively Canadian crews.
"I notice that some English' paper"
regard the scheme as a metfapd cf
strengthening the British fleet! af the
expense of Canada, and If I thought
that Premier Borden meant that, t
should recommend his immediate removal to a lunatic asylum.
"Canada must be able to defend Itself before it can be a source of real
strength to England or any other
power. It need not cut painter, but it
assuredly must cut apron strings if it
la to take Its proper place in the
world as, a grown-up state."
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the celebrated writer of patriotic verse and
author of "The Great Boer War," who
politically is a Unionist, but believes
in Home Rule for Ireland, wires:
"Magnificent, every Briton must rejoice."

How can you help your husband to save more money
than he is now able to do?
Sit down at your desk and figure it out. How long
have you been paying rent ? How long do you expect to pay rent ?
Suppose you have been paying rent for 5 years���
$25 monthly, $300 a year or $1500 in 5 years. Do
you know that we will build you a home for that
amount and let you pay for it with what you are
now paying out as rent. What have you to show
for last year's rent? Can you say that you are
$300 nearer owning your own home ? If not, make
a start towards that end today. Come to the office
and talk it over; tell us the size of a house you
need. Let us show you the 4, 5 and 6 roomed houses
we have already built for people in just your circumstances; people who cannot make big cash payments
on a house, and have been paying rent.
Tell us just how you would like to have your house
built and we will start to build it, and all you have
to pay is $25* Come to the office at once and let
us help you to get ahead of the game.

Apropos of the servant maid difficulty I heard a good story tlie other
day. The wife ol a very well known
Irish official was in want uf another
nurse, and among those who applied
for the position wss a good-natured
looking girl of about seventeen. "You
tell me," said-the official's wife, "that
you are very fond of children. That is
all very well in its way, but do you
understand anything about the duties of a nursery? Have you suy experience of children?'" "Yis, mum,"
waa the reply. "Sure, I used to be a

A Cask's Capacity.
Should you wish to get the capacity
af a cask you can do so in the following manner: Take the measurements from the bunghole to the bottom of each end ol the cask in inches.
Average the two measurements. Multiply this figure by itself twice. Then
multiply tht product by .002266. and
the remainder is the number of gallons. Example: 31 inches, 2't inches
(average 30 inches). 30x30x30���27,000.
which multiplied by .002286-61.182.
The contents, therefore, sre sixty-out
gallons  and  a  fraction.

Wu Tbere Nothlnt In It, or Wu
It a Scientific Wonder?
At Newport, It I., ls a bouse which
three-quarters of a century ago was
(he Quest of all tbe "cottages," as ths
dwellings of summer residents were
tben called, In the town. Even then it
was an old house and full of old
���furniture, such as four post bedsteads,
tables with three legs and claw feet
high bureaus wltb small mirror* oi
top and other seventeenth and eighteenth century articles.
From tbe settlement of Newport ths
property bad belonged to tbe Wlthrlngton family, tbe original Wlthrlng-
ton having come out from England
-with a patent from the government of
lands In Rhodo Is',.:,d.
Tbere was one VVIthrtngtnn-be was
tbe belr to the estate. Including tbe
Newport manor bouse���who went
abroad and was never beard ot afterward. This wns In tbe yaar 1857.
Kalph Wlthrlngton, tbe person referred to, bad a passion for science
and went to Germany to study under
the   then   famous   Professor   Htckel-
Schneider of tbe Cnlverslty of Bonn.
Wlthrlngton wus often seen by various
; -rsons entering and leaving the professor's laboratory. On tbe loth of
November. 1858, he was seen to mak*
sueh entrance. Ue was not seen to
depart at tho ususl time, nor was be
��ver seen aguln-at least ln Bonn.
Samuel   Wlthrlngton,   a   cousin   tn
America,  being  Informed that  Kalph
Inui dlsappeureil, went to Oermany to
Investigate the matter, but received no
satisfaction.  ProfessorHlokelschoelder
waa so universally  respected that no
charge of his having made way with
his pupil would  be received  by the
authorities.    Samuel   Wlthrlngton   returned to America and laid claim to

living human being.
Tbere were a few persons In Bonn
wbo attached some credence to tbls
story. No one else paid any attention
to It snd tt passed away as a Munchausen tale.
During the flrst decade of the twentieth century, wben tbe Wlthrlngton
propeity bsd long ago passed into tbe
Pushcartb family, a man apparently
about twenty-flve years of age entered
tbe place and, advancing to tbe bouse,
rang tbe bell, sent up hla card���Ralph
H. Withrlngton-witb the word that hs
belonged to the family that had for-'
merly owned tbe property.
Tbe butler took the card, ushered ths
visitor into a drawing room and after ���
brief absence returned, saying that tbt
only person wbo could see Mr. Wlthrlngton wu Mlss Pushcarth. wbo
would be down directly. A young lady
of haughty mien appeared, wbo maintained tbat reserv* to be expected
from one of hlgb degree But no sooner had sbe taken a fair look at ber
caller than sbe started. Tbere was an
unwholesome leatbery look nbout him
that appalled ber. Kh* knew all about
the family from whom ber father bad
pbtslned the plnce; that since ons
named Itnlph Wlthrlngton, tbe owner,
bad not given a deed to the property
the title was defective, and a dreadful
Ides came to ber that be bad returned
from tbe dead to claim bis own.
"Pardon what may seem an Intrusion," said tbe visitor. "Tou bave seen
by my card that I am a Wlthrlngton.
I have beeu spending some time ln
Germany nnd since my return have felt
s desire to visit tbe bome of my boyhood."
Mlss Pushcnrth shuddered the moment Mr. Wlthrlngton began to speak,
for bis voice had something of tb*
sound of a pair of leather bellows. His
throat appeared to be dry and the vocal
organs stiff. When he spoke of the
home of bis boyhood sbe Interrupted
"Kxcuse me. Vou hnve mistaken th*
place I was bom and hnve lived bere
all my life, snd I must be nearly yonr
"My ancestors, I should bave said,"
hastily replied the visit,,..
"I have heard." the lndy continued,
"thst one of tbe Wlthrlngton family
named Italph disappeared s great many
years ago. Indeed, I understand tbnt
be wss the owner of this property at
the time of bis disappearance therefore the title to It hi defective. Perhaps
you nre a descendant of this Ralph
Wlthrlngton and can supply tbe deficiency."
A singular expression cnme over tbe
young innu's fnce. Am Mlss Pushcarth
looked at blm ln tbe light dimmed by
the heavy curtains It seemed to her
that sbe snw lu blm tbe soul of s very
old msn. As to bis body. It was neither

one could scarcely tell whether be was
seventy-five or twenty-flve. Without
making a direct reply, ber guest lu the
courtly manner of hnlf a century before, assured ber tbnt he could make

ber If   'ie would Inherit It."
"It is mine slready," she snld. "My

my father a year ago. There Is nothing to trouble me In the settlement of

Doubtless he Is dead long ago and wtll

Odd Bequests by Rhymesters Have
Hald Good In Courts.
Mr. Thomas A. ArmMrong, of Dal-
ke;-, in Ireland, who died on .lune
&'lnl left all his personal estate in the
United Kingdom to bis wife. His will
ran uj follows:
All earthly goods I hsve in store
To my dear wife I lesve tor evermore.
I freely give, no limit do I fix.
This is my will, and she the executrix.
Mr. Armstrong wss only following
an example that has been s?t many
a time beiore. Hundreds of wills have
been written ln rhyme. We give here
one or two of the more curious.
A quaint will that was admitted to
probate ran as follows:
W.ien I'm lsid underneath,
I give and bequeath,
To my two loving sisters most deal,
The whole of my store,
Wpre it twice as much more,
Which   God's goodness has given me
And Hint none may prevent

Or occaB:on tlie least of law-racket,
With a solemn appeal

Joshua West, who left a p>oetical
last will and testament, was evidently
uncertain in his own mind if he had
anything to leave or not.
Maybe I am not worth a groat.
But should   I   die   worth   something
I leave it all, with my old coat,
And all my manuscripts in store,
To tho��o who wil! the goodness have
To cause my poor remains to rest
Within a fitting shell and grave;
This is the will uf Joshua West.
A'lthough hundreds of people have
left vindicative wills in prose, very
few have done so in rhyme. Evidently poetry gives testators a better outlook on life. The following will is in
distinct contrast to Mr. Armstrong's:
Here is my will: I leave to my wife
Exactly nothing a year for life.
I found her. while living, the dearest
I knew;

bnt It Isn't th* easiest thing In th*
world either to prepare th* pound of

The Latest Ides In England.
A National League for the Promo-
tion of Domestic Happiness is Uie
latest proposal for England. It has
tor its promoters a few clergymen
who have been impressed by the ex
traordinary number of coujilcs in their
parishes who have obtained separation orders from the magistrates becnuse of domestic strife.
Th^ idea of tlie clerics is that magis
trntes nre too accommodating to np
plicsnb chnfing under the matrimonial harness and if efforts were
rrndc to subdue domestic brertes they
would mostly he prevented from developing into gsles. So this lesgue
is to organize ministers of all denominations and kind Christians of both
sexes to set as peacemakers.
They will take their respective parishes under survey .and in casea of
household str;,'- where the husband if
at fault ths msmber of the league
most likely to influence him will bs
selected to intervene and subsequently keep an *y* on the culprit It the
wife is the offender then some sym-
psthetic woman will plead with her.
Most enthusiastic workers among
the poor, especially in the north, call
these separation orders ths "working
class equivalent to divorce." Uie lair

The consequence is they have no

where both husband and wife are

use. Lancashire alone hu 96.000

He  Wor* the ReSe.
A story is told ot the late Dr. Ped-
dii, a Scotch minister, to whom his
congregation l.ad presented a pulpit
robe. He had never worn a role, and
nfter acknowledging the gilt he said
he would wait in the vestry five min-
utee after service to hear any objectors to the innovation. Nobody sp
peered 1 ut one old lady. who. on being asked what her objections were,
answered that she had read the epistles' of 8t. Paul and could not find any
reference to the apostle wearing a
gown. "What epistle did ynu read?
asked the doctor. "From Romans to
Hebrews," answered the old lady.
"Well, Janet," said her minister, "1
have read from Romans to Hebrews
also1, and I could never flnd any refer
ence to th* apoetle wearing the bre-kn.
What would you think If you saw m*
going into the pulpit without breeksf"
The old lady quit right there, and
the minister wore the robe.
Motoring Msde Popular.
A British engineer has invented sn
apparatus which, it is claimed, will
prevent the clouds of dust raised in
dry weather by motors and other
chicles. The device, which is simple
and inexpensive, collects the dust na
it rises. The dust is drawn into conduits which nre funnel shewed at the
mouth and which run from tho rear
of the back whiels. These conduits
are connected with a box into wljich
the dust is driven by the pressure of
air, or this end can also be accomplished by the aid ot a centrifugal
tan geared to tha driving shaft of the
cur. The contents of the dust box can
be discharged by pulling a lever at
the front ot th* vehlole.
