An official dispatch Issued tonight
Ottawa, Feb. 7.���At the opening of
the house of commons today J .A.
Robb, Huntingdon, Que., read a dispatch rrom Saskatoon, stating that of
44 samples of butter wblch bad been
examined by the civic authorities only
one had been found to be pure butter,
the others all being mixtures of various ingredients, lt wa* charged that
there were four or five firms ln eastern Canada or in Winnipeg that were
shipping the stuff ln and Mr. Robb
wanted to know from the minister of
agriculture what he proposed doing
about it
Hon. Martin Burrell said be had
not seen the dispatch himself and ln
any case it would come under the
adulteration of foods act which was administered by the department of internal revenue. He promised to draw
it to the attention of Mr. Nantel at
. Hon. Mr. Pugsley said he had seen
in the newspapers that the proposed
steamship service between maritime
ports and the West Indies, which is
an integral part ot the West Indies
trade agreement, would include Boston as a port of call. He said that the
matter was arousing a great deal of
attention ln the cities of St. John
and Halifax, and he would like to ask
the government if it was their policy
to subsidize a line calling at button
or other United States ports.
Premier Borden replied that he had
heard tbese rumors, but that Halifax,
St. John nor the hen. member for St.
John need not give themselves the
slightest concern. *
Mr. Martin, Regina, resumed the naval debate in a lengthy speech. He
said the question which was being
discussed was one which would change
the whole position of Canada -in the
British empire and he lamented tin
fact that the government side of the
bouse had seen fit to discontinue participation in a debate which had sucii
important bearings.
"I would not want to say that the
prime minister has gagged his followers," he said, "rather, I think I recognize the coarse or fine hand of
the minister, of .public works who ls
accustomed to such tactics, but 1
would like to say to 'him that he cannot  carry on any  such  practices in
thu house"  .    , iger  from ��,  smaller  iieet. .*ne  au-

Ontario. He had said that the present
proposal was only the beginning and
that there would be a permanent policy. It had been stated in the ho-ose-
and not denied, that the government
had given a secret pledge to abolish
tbe naval service act Whether thi*
Is true or not he could not say, but
the government had allowed the expenditure made by - tbe late government to go to waste and ha* done
everything lt can do to discourage the
Canadians from joining the navy.
Mr. Martin referred to tbe fact that
all the western memberr. represent- ���
ed constituents containing a population in excess of that which they
would be entitled to ln the event of
a redistribution. Fur tbis reason, he-
said, a redistribution should be passed
before this act ls allowed to becomo
law. He did not say tbat the government proposal was not constitutional
under the terms of B. N. A. act, although the minister of justice ami
Mr. Monk, ex-minister of public works,
had both expressed tbe view tnat
Canada had no right to make tha
proposed contribution. Mr. Martin
objected to the proposal because tt
would shift a great responsibility
which the government, the people or
Canada, should assume to the government of Great Britain. On the othei-
haud, if we commence to build ���
-mall Canadian navy It will grow and:
in the course of time Canadians
would be proud of it. Mr. Borden
had said that it would take from 25
to ��0 years to build a Canadian navy.
That is all thc more reason why We-
should , get to work at ortce. Thi-
policy cf ccntraliiation which was involved In the government's proposal,
he said, waa the old Tory doctrine.
!t would not work out in a manner
satisfactory to the empire.
Mr. Michaud. liberal member for
Vlctoria-Madawaska, who followed
with a short speech, said that the*
policy of the governmont was "no

The main estimates for the year 1913-14 were tabled
this week in the Dominion house and a perusal of them
shows that the sum of $50,000 only was contained therein
for the harbor improvement work at the actual mouth of

This amount, we are enabled to state, is money re-
TOted for the completion of that section of the retaining
jrier which was undertaken last year. It may be confidently asserted that the money for the carrying on of further portions of this important work will be brought down
to be voted upon in the supplementary estimates.
These estimates are likely to assume unusually large
proportions this year as they will include the money to
be devoted to the gift of three Dreadnoughts to the navy.

With stern endurance they marched

instead upon the smaller stockaded

It is to be regretted that no relief is to be looked for

House cleaning in winter time Is a

little favor with thc majority of householders, but It is what Dr. Mahood, of
'Sl^ary, advocates In a modified form

which Is brought In so many varied
'orms by the common garden or
housefly, upon which the hosts of
science h.ivp heen waging war for
oome considerable time without, however, havin** yet succeeded ln effecting extermination.
Dr. Mahord thinks that in the dis-
rtnt future ���.vh-ni van and especially
woman will have become so civilized
'hat they will do things right at the
proper time, house cleaning will be

Street Manners Need
A Little Burnishing
We are running up against each
other as we walk in the streets, for,
In spite of the subways, the overhead
railways, the three-story tubes, we
are moBt of us walking, and walking

streets that are narrow to the men

about their height.
Obviously the proper method ls
that the shorter man should pnss his
umbrella under the umbrella of the
taller man. But men ln the street
are not polite about their inches, and
their manners forget the rule of the
road, that the big horse should have
precedence. Continually one finds

What Not to Do.
So soon as you emerge upon the
street your manners become important It is not only -that- when you
turn to buy a newspaper without holding up a warning hand (as the bicyclist does), not only that your sudden twist towards an alluring shop
window, throws the traffic out of
The nursemaid with a perambulator alwavs has tbe slew toward the
shop window. The manner of the
man who walks has a good deal to do
with the conduct of the umbrella or
tbe stick. In fine weather the walking stick is a common object of the
street. It Is used, swinging, to Induce reflection; It Is used, stuck under the arm, while the owner lights a
cigarette, as a horizantal menace.
Now the man who swings a walking-
stick In London���In the Strand���la a
man who should   be abolished;    tne
thead    She sees everything, but dote
not turn her coiffure.
When you walk out with coat umbrella, or walking stick, with pipe,
cigar, or any appurtenance* you mu*
n member that you are one of many,
and that with every step ln the street
v**u inflict yourself upon otber people.
Remember that If you swing a stick
you will probably hit someone In the
eye. If you-whistle a tune you will
certainly annoy somebody. If you
sway towards the shop window you
will disorganise the traffic. If you lift
an umbrella you may have to apologize for taking up double your space,
if you do anything but walk straightforward you will be a nuisance to your
fellows. Your duty as a walker in
the street is to walk circumspectly,
and that word means 'looking around.'
But in the crowded city the circumspect man who keeps the rules Is as
the ihsect with eyes all round Its head.
He looks ahead and avoids side issues. That is the proper manner of
the street���T. P.'a Weekly.

Experts Believe Not One Bushel
Grain Will Be Shipped From
Terminal City's Harbor.
The following communication dated
Feb. 5 from Mr. O. Wynn Wilson of
Vancouver, to the Sun, Is of interest
Last evening tbe Russell Hotel was
the scene of a very bright gathering;
When the Westminster Graduate Nurses Association gave a banquet tn
the 1913 graduate nurses of tbe Royal Columbian hospital . The long table was prettily decorated with pink
carnations and silver tulle, salmon,
pink and silver being the colors of the

"Sir,���In your leading article this
morning, and on many previous mornings, you describe Vancouver as"hav-
ing a natural destiny aa perhaps tbe
greatest grain-shipping port on the
North American continent."
As a matter of fact those who know
most shout the grain shipping business that will follow the opening of
the Panama canal, believe that not
bushel of grain will be shipped from
Vancouver. May I bave a little space
to give one side of the case?
Grain will be shipped west by three
roads, the C.P.R., the C.N.R. and the
0. T. P. At the present time the C.
P. R. handles about fifty per cent and
the 0. T. P. fourteen per cent These
are the figure* of the 1911 harvest,
latest I have, but no. doubt these proportions were maintained In 1912.
The otber day the C. P. R. announced that they would ship tbelr wheat
from Coqultlam. The C. N. R. has
announced a number ot times that
their elevators will be at Port Mann,
and If the O. T. P. do not ship theirs
from Prince Rupert, the chances are
they wlll send their share ot the
wheat traffic down the Pacific coast
eastern to Newport.
Of course Vancouver will he the financing centre for all those wheat shipments and that may he what you
mean,' but lt ts safe to say that tho

frontage and track* ln

Thc pictorial program at the Edison
last night was of exceptional excellence. "The Vengeance of Durand,"
alone would have repaid the audience
which packed the house. A tragedy of
Jealousy nnd revenge in a French
home the drama depicted dumbly but
so vividly, thrilled the spectators as
-only a powerful tragedy, portrayed by
artists of the highest talent can. Every
scene and especially the duel and
house burning incidents kept the audience spell bound.
Another telling series of pictures
was "The Submerged," wltb its pathetic "bread line" where the down
and outs are shown lining up for a
hunch of bread and a cup ot cofteee in
a manner that would Inspire sympathy
and benevolence in the most flinty
hearted. Interwoven is the story of a
young man reduced to suicidal despair,
restued. by the interposition of a
young*nady and by a happy circumstance restored to home and fortune.
A reciprocal rescue and wedding follows.
The* "Three Black Bags" gives the
desirdd humorous relief, while the
���spectacular scenes are all first claBS,
varying from President Taft's. reception at Florida, to Parisian fashions,
the Emperor of Germany's deer hunt
and the funeral of the Countess of

taken so that the smaller vessels cf
the fleet might be built ln Canada.
In England, he said, all matters
affecting tlie navy are settled in an
amicable spirit by the two parties
The same condition should prevail in
Canada. Let our parties, he urged,
forgive and forget tho past and start
square. Why not go hack to the reso
lutiojii'of March, 190&, which was
passed unanimously, and let both par
t'es unite in creating an effective
Canadian naval service and unite now
in -building three of the host shipB
possible and lending them to the admiralty. '
Should Maintain Ships.
Col, McLean aiso ajgued that Can
ada should undertake the maintenance of the ships which the Dominion, way have constructed. Further,, be held, that as soon as Canadians can be trained tor naval service
the Dominion should undertake the
manning of the ships as well.
He. was following out this part ot
his speech when the house rose for
the 6 o'clock recess.
In a play which has the seal of a
"command performance" for the late
King and his royal guests, Mr. Lewis
Waller, one of England's most notable
play* rs and conceded to be the greatest romantic actor of his day, conies
to the opera house M-nnlay evening,
February 17, in Alexander Dumas'
comedy, "A Marriage of Convenience."
For his initial bow to Canada, it is
poss.ble that a better selection could
not have been made, for aside froir
the fact that Mr. Waller haa to hla
���credit in England many distinct triumphs the role of Corate de Candale
is said tn he particularly fitted to him

Sharpe, North Ontario, ln which Mr.
Sharpe bad advocated the combination of the government and the opposition proposals and had expressed
the opinion that the two proposals
are not contradictory "but complimentary. He would join with Mr.
Sharpe, Col. McLean continued, in
urging that the liavy question should'
be removed, from the realm of contentious politics. ���
Should Have Conference.
Col. McLean went on to urge that
tbe leaders of the two parties Bhould
meet in conference over the question
with a view to bringing about unsn
imitv. Conference of an hour, he said
wonld settle the outlines of a policy
on which both parties could agree' il
the respective leaders appointed the
conference in the proper spirlt.-
Coutinuing, Col. McLean suggesteu
that a Canadian defence committee,
made up from both parties, should be
appointed to consider questions concerning defence. The proposals of
the government should be carried out,
taking the recommendation of the admiralty as given in paragraph 10 oi
the memorandum and making the
number of dreadnoughts three as sug
gested by the premier.
"Then," he said, "let Us have tula
special defense committee appointed
and let It take up and study tbe whole
question with a view- of determinins
what form Canada's permanent naval
aid to the empire should take."
This committee, he said, should sit
during the parliamentary recess, visit
England and obtain expert advice and
make a full report at the next sitting
of  parliament*,   then   let  the  scheme
evolved he submitted to the people In

Heirs Join With Church���Latter Will

Work Suggested.
Boston, Feb. 7.���Litigation over the
bequest of two million dollars made
to the Christ Church of Christian Science of Boeton by Mrs. Mary Baker
Eddy, ended today when her natural
heirs Joined with the trustees of tlie
church in proposed decrees entered In
the several courts involved.
Coincident with these actions, the
Massachusetts house concurred with
the senate in an enabling act which
permits tbe mother church to accept
the use of the money for the advancement of Christian Science as directed
by Its founder.
Four stipulations compose the decrees, which were entered simultaneously in the courts of Massachusetts
and New Hampshire and the federal
courts for the district of New Hampshire.

They further consent thst the trustees holding $175,000, whicb ts the

A crust of a defence that quivered
and broke when Ernie Johnson was
compelled to retire ln the third period,
tells the tale of a* Vancouver victory
obtained in six minutes overtime last,
evening at the Westminster arena, tho
first ever played in this city.
Hopelessly beaten from pillar to post
in the first two periods, Vancouver
mustered their forces in the third and
taking advantage of the absence of
Johnson coupled with the fact that
Charlie Tobln was but a passenger
with an injured ankle, slipped two
goals into tbe Westminster net, aod
in five minutes and forty-five seconds
of overtime play the local fans had tbe
mortification of seeing Fred Harris
take the puck up the ice and pass to
Frank Patrick who smashed the rubber past Lehman for the winning goal.
Apart from the few fleeting ino
ments in the third period Westmins
ters were masters of the situation anil
the crowd of 250 had the satisfaction
of knowing that although beaten In
the final rush the Royals were far the
better team. There was no getting
away from the Westminster team last
night. They played hockey of a caliber that brought the Patterson.cup to
this city last season although playing
on Strange ice throughout and were it
not for tho liodoo that has accompanied them throughout the present
season neither of the other two teams
would be perched ln the high positions
they find themselves In today.
The game Itself was one of the best
seen this season, either in Vancouver
or Victoria and while one unfortunate
Incident happened when Oatman anf
Grlffls came to blows, the public had
an excellent brand of hockey dished
out to them, which will tend to Increase the attendance at the rest of
the home games.
The fans who have been wondering
what the Nil.A. were doing the early
part of the season, had a chance to
peek at Ihs six-man game when Oatman and Grlfris were cent off for ten
minutes each, and while tbe individual
rushes were perhape-tliex most exult-
ing, the combination plays Of either
side win ii playing the seven men undoubtedly appealed more to the crowd.
Parr's Great Game.
Westminster took the offensive
from the first drop of the puck and
throughout the first \���-' ���*j)f���- bussing around thn Vancouver nets, the
stellar work of Parr between the posts
being the feature of the first 20 minutes. Charlie Tobln whipped the puck
into the net In the first period but
the whiBtle-had gone previously. Ko-
chon made quite^a hit when he went
through the bunch ami hit Parr ln
the chest with a lightning shot.
, The opening of tbe second period
found both teams on un equal basts
and It was evident that the fireworks
would soon open on the scoring line-
Johnson missed his chance to place
"the Royals In the lead when he failed
to pass to Mallen who was unguarded hut the latter soon made amends
for swinging a long pass near the geal,
Captain (lurdner beat Parr for the
first tally. Tho crowd broke loose al
this and egged on by tbelr enthusiasm
the Royals pressed still further.
"Moose" Johnson made one of his
brilliant rushes through the Vancouver
defence but waa tripped -up hear the
nets and crashed with full force into
one of tbe,goal poBts. lie resumed

Charlie Tobln, lurf before the gong
annulled, recovered th* puck nonr his
own real end making a beautiful center ice sweep, whipped tke rubper past
Parr for the second tally.
The third period found the Royals
clamping on the lid when Mallen was
rent off for what appeared to be a
foul by Harris. The crowd booed the
officials, ln a mrxup nter the goal

other staples over and adore the honse
consumption required even for her
teeming millions, that the capacity
of her seaports Is betas doubled.
There are fifty steamships in the
harbor of Bombay today. A new dock
and steel sheds, which rival those of
Montreal, arc nearly finished at a coat
of $7,000,000. At Karachi, a seaport
500 miles west of Bombay, the commerce has doubled In eight years, anil

Ixindon, Feb. 7.���The disappearance
from her home at Chlswlck of Mfs.
Lavinia Everley, and her subsequent
death, unknown to her relatives In
Long Grove BBylum, Epsom, form a
strange chapter of London life.
Mrs. Everley, nn infirm woman of
74, quietly wandered away from her
home on Dec. 28, 1911, and her path
afterwards lay through police celis,
a prison, a workhouse, aud an asylum.
On Doc. 10, last, leave was given
In tbe probate division to presume
her death. The attention of the asylum authorities was attracted to the
case, and lt was established througu
a photograph that the woman for
whom tho relatives, aided by the police, had been anxioufily searching for
a year, had been buried the previous
April in an unknown grave In the cemetery adjacent to the asylum.
Mrs. Everley's mental condition had
for several years been causing anxiety, and it was thought advisable to
watch her carefully. But on Dec. 28
1911, while the woman In whose charge
she had been left was conversing to
a visitor, the old lady walked Into
the street attired only in her indoor
clothing and wearing Blippers. To a
neighbor whom she met, she said
gaily that she was going to visit her
mother, though, In fact, her mother
had been dead for forty years.
The police were quickly Informed
of Mrs. Everley's disappearance, ana
a minute dlscrlption of her was Bent
to all the metropolitan slntlons. That
night an old woman was arrested in
Cray's Inn road. London, on a charge
of be-tglng. Her memory seemed rather feeble, but Bhe said she was Amelia Francis, u widow, agod 62.
She was remanded to Hollawny jail,
and on Jan. !> she waa sent to the City
road workhouse. Twelve days later
she was transferred to Long drove
asylum. There she gave no name, and
no clue aa to her identity could be
found.   She died nn April 24.
Two photographs were taken at th?
asylum of this woman���both side face
nnd full face���and a Ron of Mrs. Ever
ley, on visiting the asylum, found the
photographs to be those of hiB mother
London, Feb. 7. -Captain Kjnar Mlk-
keinen, the nanlFh Arctic explorer,
speaking at the Aeolian Mall, London, on his three years' expedition to
Northeast Greenland, Bald when the
food supply whb runnliiK out they
dreamed of food at night.
One night he dreamed he saw a
large plate full of beautiful sandwiches, but when he approached them
he found they were enclosed with
glass and he could not Ret at them.
Another time he saw in n dream a
plate of sandwiches covered with a
newspaper, but when he took away
the newspaper he found another newspaper and etlll another and could
never get to the sandwiches.
Uskup, Feb. 7.���One of the most
powerful of the Albanian chiefs in the
Sanjak and Uskup was an old bandit
named ldras Safar. He was head of
the Kara Dagh tribesmen, and ruled
some 3000 scalawags with a rod of
He wns simply a robber, and had
taken scores of lives with his own
hand. Idras was a fanatical Mussulman, bnt early one day he left his
mountain fastness in a blinding snowstorm and rode Into Uskup to make
a treaty rf peace with the Servians
and offer bla allegiance to King Peter,
Thanks to the good offices of my
friend Captain Milan Georgevitch, an
officer on the staff of the military
commandant at Uskup, I was enabled
to meet the old bandit within an hour
of his arrival and have a cbat with
Old Safar most have had a severe
Journey down the Kara Dagh. It had
been snowing steadily for over twenty
hours, and the passes through the
hills were deeply covered. But he
had determined to make his peace
with the Servians, and braving the
wintry weather, he rode for some eleven hours through the whirling snow-
flakes to Uskup.
With him was a Servian officer.
Captain BoJIen Slmitch. one of a type
to be found ln all armies, men who
are alwaya on duty and ever seeking
an opportunity to serve their country.
Two yearn ago Captain Simitcb
took a few week's leave, and dee'ded
to spend it exploring the wild Kara
Dagh range, Just as the officers of
our own Indian army occasionally
spend their leisure among the fierce
tribesmen of the northwest frontier.
During hie wanderings Captain Sim
itch met and made friends with old
Idras Safar.
They exchanged the "Uessar'* or
pledge of friendship. When Idras decided to throw in his lot with the
Servians, he bethought him of his
friend of two summers ago, and sent
a token indicating that he wished to
meet him. Captain Slmitch obtained
a safe conduct tor the old bandit, and
so he rode through the snow to Us-
Robber at Ease.
When I met him he was sitting in
a comfortable room, smoking a cigarette through a holder about a foot
long, and taking occasional hearty
swigs from a big tankard of imported
German beer with a gusto unexpected
in a devout Mussulman, who by his
religion ls debarred from all indulgence In alcohol.
When I was Introduced to him by
Captain Georgevitch the bandit eyed
me grimly for some seconds. Then the
fieirce old face broke into a. kindly
Bi.;^e R'slng, he made the salaam,1
and then ��vretching out a gnarled fist,
he gave my band k Finn's grip. Safar
was a rugged old figure. A short,
sturdy frame was surmounted by ft
big round head covered with whit"
bair. The face, which looked as if
lt had been crudely carved out of SU
oak root, was lighted up by a pair of
wide open blue eyes, placed very far
apart. A snow white moustache droop
ed across the lips to a firm chin. Over
the whole deeply-lined countenance
was a look of alertness and iron resolution that bespoke a lifetime passed
in eireumstanees tbat required instant
and unwavering decision.
It ts no easy task to rule 3000 wild
Albanian hillmen, and Safar had done
It for more than forty years. He wai
dressed in a sort ot uniform, with a
gold embroidered cummerbund and a
red Bhawl wound around his temples
below the small, white skull-cap, tha*
is the typical Albanian headdress. On
the collar of his short Jacket shone

With Safar were two of his leading
tribesmen. These were also Introduced to me. One of them. Safai-s
cousin, who strongly resembled his
chief, and had a black cross embroidered on his skull cap, on shaking my
hand proclaimed himself a Catholic.
Wben I said I also was a member of
that faith, the old ruffian Insisted on
embracing me and cheeking both my
cheeks. Religious sympathy apart,
he was the last person In the wond
I should have selected for this purpose.
Double Translation.
Idras Safar spoke no language save
Albanian, but his kinsman knew -< r-
vlart, so by a double proo*"-* n( Initis-
latlori, first Into Servian *n1 inn ir-
to French, by >-v��' kn i'v 'Mlorptisl-
tlon pf a Servian officer, I managed
to have a roundabout conservation
with the bandit. All through tbe chat
Idras made frequent appeals to the Almighty, and I noticed with some Bur-
prise that he always used, the Ser
vlan word "bog" for the Deity. He
may havo done no for convenience,
as I have since learned, on discussing
the point with a gentleman who knows
tbe language, that tbo Albanian word
for God consists of four syllables.
Safar's first remarks coincided remarkably with those of other Mussulmans I have met. He declared, with
great emphasis, that it was evident
Macedonia must have a new master.
The Servian arms were Invincible and
he had come to tbe conclusion tbat
lt was his duty to nuibmlt. Then I
asked If his example were likely to
be followed by other Albanians. All
the Kara Dagh, he replied, would submit, except, perhaps; one small district; "and," he added, grimly, "1 can
settle with tbem myself." Asked of
his experience under Turkish rule, Safar aald be had many unpleasant
hours under lt, especially since the
Young; Turkish, regime begnn.
Bave Ue Nothing.
"They promised ua everything," he
added with fine scorn, "and they gave
us nothing, nnd then they wanted to
take our rifles from us." ' That, of
course, was the last indignity, because
an Albanian prizes his gun rather
more highly than his wife, or even
than several wives, when he ls rich
enough to afford a plurality.
So Idras Safar and hla fellow rob-
had a grudge a gainst the Young
Turks, which he at least was paying
back with in treat in their hour of
Asked why he had deserted the
Turks, Safar said that he saw that
the day of the Turk waa done, and
he was ready to obey the new master
"I have served the Sutan faithfully
since I became a man. Now I am ready serve King Peter as faithfully as
for many generations I and my people
have served the Sultan." And he
rose to his feet and saluted.
Paid Back Grudge.
Then we talked generally, and Safar said he was sure that the Servians
would rule more Justly .than the Turks
All he desired was that his own people should get the same treatment as
the Servians, have liberty to practice
their religion, and tbat the seclusion
of their women should be respected.
"All this has been guaranteed to me
and I am content. If the Servians are
not Just to us," he concluded, "tbere
is a god above who will punish them."
So I bade the old felow and his two
henchmen goodby, and tbey went out
into the snow guarded by a squad of
soldiers. Old Safar's life was not
safe just then In Uskub.' The news
that he had come ln to make peace
with the Servians had spread like
wildfire among the town-dwelling Albanians, and they were buzzing like
a beehive Into which one thrusts a
stick on a July afternoon.
The old bandit, accustomed all his
days to carry his life In his band*',
minded all the ferment not a Jot. But
his life was precious to tbe Servians,
and they took good care that nothing
should happen to him. That night he
was safe again among the glens of
the snowy Kara Dagh.��� II. J.McHugh

Friends of Aviator Vedrlnes Are Very
Rough  With  "Human Tenderness��� How to Restore It.
Paris, Feb. 7.���-When Aviator Ved
rlnes was defeated aa a candidate for
the chamber of deputies bis supporters expressed their disappointment by
overturning, a statue in Limoux which
stood by the river bank and repre
sented "human tenderness." Not content with hurling the group from Its
pedestal, they draged lt to the river
Aude and threw it ln.
That waa eight months or mor*
ago, and there at the bottom of the
river Aude still lies "human tenderness." It has become a merry Jest
ln Limoux that human tenderness Is
not to be found tn that vicinity.
The Joke will lose Its point, However, if John Durand has his way. In
the chamber this week he recited the
whole story and wanted to know when
the statute Is to be replaced.
The people of Limoux refuse to go
to the expense and all the public bod
les are equally unwilling. Mr. Durand has been looking up musty records and finds that an ordinance
dated 1777 directs the minister of
public works to remove at publlo expense all rubbish dangerous to navigation In navigable rivers. The Aude
ls navigable If one Is very careful,
and so "human tenderness" may once
more hold sway In Limoux.
The price of eggs took a bound upward on the city market yesterday owing to a scarcity ln the supplies. The
visible supply of hen fruit has been
greatly reduced during the past week
on account of the rigorous character
of the weather and lt was owing to
this that the vendors were short yesterday. The rise amounted to between three to five cento.
Taking it all round the market was
not quite up to the average of last
week but a fairly satisfactory business waa done.
The situation aa regards stock was
practically unaltered.    There was a
good stock of chickens on hand which
found  ready  sale  at quoted  prices.
Vegetables were practically a negll-
gable quantity and will be for some
time yet.    Fruit, as was the cose ln
the previous week, waa conspicuous by
ita absence except for a h.uf do-ten
cases of apples of a poor grade.
It is  intimated that should the
rigorous  weather of  the    past    few
weeks continue a great shortage ot
vegetables may be expected.

it was reported tbat he had failed
over the cliffs, Flamborough, on Jan.
18, and his death was taken for granted, although the body could not be
found, and a memorial service, at
which tbe bishop of the diocese
preached, was held In bis church. A
wuek ago yesterday, however, the
chief constable for Leeds made the
startling announcement that Knight
had been traced In Kngland since the
date of the "tragedy" and added that
there could be little doubt that he had
now left the country tor Australia under an assumed name.
The story published at the time was
to the effect that Knight and his wife
had gone to Flamborough to take
photographs. The husband went to
the edge of tbe eliff to take a flash
light picture and after the flash Mrs.
Knight saw her husband fall over
the cliff.

Deputy  Minister  Robbed.'
Calgary, Feb. 7.-W. *, Harmer, deputy minister of railways, was  rob.
Sofia, Feb. 7.���Quite the raciest
scandal since tbe war began burst on
Sofia yesterday. A "Dr." Roche,
from Chicago, a correspondent for an
American press agency, was admitted
to an audience with King Ferdinand,
disguised at a priest.
The affair has Just been found out
at tht. palace, which ls ln consternation, as the king is said to have said
things to Roche which he would say
only to a priest. Only an equerry's
astuteness saved the queen from giving the man an audience too Whether
Roche is an unfrocked priest or
merely knows how to tay a mass ls
not yet known.
For two weeks he bas played a
triple part, posing purely as a priest
to the Dominican Friars, who watch
over the king's spiritual welfare, as a
rich philanthropist to Dr. Count of the
American Methodist mission here,
and as a very worldly Journalist to his
colleagues who never suspected he
had anything to do with any church.
The first suspicion arose when he
helped to say mass at a service held
for the Grand Duke Ralner, some foreign attaches then mentioning Ue
fact to Captain Sherman Miles, military attache of the American legation, who said it must be merely a
case of likeness Yesterday morning
after "Dr." Roche had said msss ln
the king's private chapel, a young attache of the king remarked to an
'We had Buch a funny priest today;
he can not talk a word of French and
comes from Chicago."
The equerry made enquiries and
found out that Roche was staying at
the Bulgarian Hotel, as a Journalist
His Majesty ls reported to be much
distressed, because he feels he has
unwittingly done an Injustice to other
Journalists and being king he eau
not deny or denounce the Interview
as the king is supposed to make no
Dr. Count, who wrote a letter to
the queen recommending Roche and
asking her to see him, feels disgraced
for life.
Roche ls tall and grayhared, with
a hanging underlip and furtive eyes.
He has no tonsure, but got over that
difficulty by wearing a blretta when
with the king.
One  Hundred  In  England and Wales

ln a white paper Just issued by the
local government board. The victims
died ln Engb.-.d and Wales last year
���forty-four in London and fifty-six
In the provinces.
In fourteen cases a verdict was
returned by the Jury that death was
due to starvation, .or to starvation ln
conjunction with some other cause���
disease, exposure or neglect.
Eleven victims were ln receipt of
old-age pensions at the time of death,
and four of them had been ln receipt
ot out-door relief previously.
In eighty two of the one hundred
cases no application was made for
do", relief, or application was only
made when the person was ln a dying
Of the London victims, twenty-nine
were ni" i, thirteen were women, and
two children. The oldest man was
seventy-nine and the oldest woman
eighty-four. There was one young
man of nineteen, and tbe two children
were uged thirteen and fifteen months
In many cases the coroner's juries
expressed tho opinion in their verdicts tha; death was accelerated by
self-negl Kit Some of the victims had
described themselves to the guard-
lanaas "homeless" and several were
found ln the streets in a more or less
moribund condition.
Thirty-seven of the victims in the
provinces were men, fourteen women
and five children.

IB fact that men of stsndingsnd responslbillre*.

Muscular and Inflammatory Rheumatism,
Lumbago, Sciatica and all other troubles arising
from weak, inactive or diseased kidneys, have
little chance against GIN PILLS.
The curative properties in these pills go
straight to the root of the trouble���the failure
of the kidneys to keep Ihe blood free from the
irritating Uric Acid which is continually being
formed in the body. GIN PILLS help the Kidneys to perform tbis function
properly, and the train of troubles vanish.
Just try it and prove it to your own satisfaction.   There ia no riil^-raoa-ey

Newspapers vs. Circulars
Which Is Best?
Have you, Mr. Business Man, thoroughly studied out
the relative values of the two advertising mediums ���-
newspapers and circulars?
If you have tried both you know that one lot of circulars will cost you far more for printing and distributing
than an advertisement of equal size published in a daily
The extra cost of circulars, however, would not matter if proportionate results were secured from their use.
But that's the question.
How many copies of The News* distributed to the
houses in New Westminster and district are not taken in
and read by everyone in the household? Not one-quarter
of one per cent
How many circulars are taken into the homes and
read by the members of the family who are buyers? Not
10 percent
If you doubt this statement go around some morning
after a bunch of circulars have been distributed and see"
bow many are left lying in the yard, kicked into the gutter or Mown about that street
People welcome the daily paper. The drctuar is
looked upon as a nuisance by many, particulgny these
who have to clean up the litter they make on Jgl lawns.

New   Book  Says  He  Loved  A   High
I Born Maid of Honor.
Mary wsa only called a maid of
"honor." She really wasn't one. She
was a wicked woman���and the theory
of Harris is that she wtvs the "dark
lady" of the Shakespeare sonnets.
According to the story, Shakespeare,
who was of lower social caste than
Mary, and who had been the victim
of a forced marriage and had separated from his wife, persuaded William
Herbert, third Earl of Pembroke, to
uits>rcc.l<* with Mistress Fitton in hia
beVi-tlt. Herbert interceded entirely
for his own beniftt.
Then Shakespeare took charge of hia
own interests with Mary; and the second section ol the sonnets consist ot
hia avowals of love for her and his
lamontings of her atrocious treatment
of him. Finally his personal standing
in London was quite wrecked by the
affair, and, in the height of his business and literary career, he was compelled to withdraw to ignorminious retirement at Stratford.
All (his explains why there are so
few personal references to Shakespeare in the literature of the time. He
was a socially discredited man.
There are many references to the
deceitful "dark lady" in Shakespeare's
plays besides tlie plain talk of tho
sonnets. Mr. Harris thinks that
Cleopatra in "Antony and Cleopatra."
is a sort of glorified and intensified
pictur- of Mary, and that this prodigious tragedy was inspired by Shakespeare's hopeless, love. One certainly
si's the same fierce personality in
Cleopatra that is portrayed in the sonnets. And aa one reads Shakespeare
in tlie y-fht of Harris' book, one frequently falls upon illusion* which
seem \o betray this love.
The principal difficulty about the
"dark lady" theory, as associated
with Mary thi maid of equivocal honor, la that an apparently authentic
portrait of Mistress Fitton has been
discovered ami it shows her as a
blonde and not a brunette I

Marriage   Bargains.
George A. Birmingham, the well-
known writer, ssys there is no coun
try in the world where marriage, at
least m the peasant class, is more a
matter of bargaining, and yet shows
a higher average of stability and content, than Ireland. Somctimea the
man has never seen the woman before they are bre-oght together, the
precise number of pounds, ows, or
pigs to be handed over having becn
*y that time settled.
This is illustrated in personal recollections just published by an Irish
lady. She was visiting with tin aunt
a cottage in the neighborhood, and
admired a fine mahogany che.it of
" Twas for that I wsa married.''
said the mistress of the cottage. A
young farmer had also seen and admired. A bargain was struck. There
was no money, but the bride waa to
bave a couple of sheep, a yeaning
bullock, and the chest. The prudent
young man measured it, and then
turned and asked:
"An' which o' thim little girls is

"An' so I wint," she said, "and was

The system finds favor with th*

especially those married couples who

England's Vanishing Lake.
The famous Dunkirk lake at North-
wleh (Cliesliire) bus vanished, tor the
second time within a year. In a few
ae.conds, millions of (-nitons of water
entered the bowels of the earth
through a er-tit chasm, 200 feet deep,
formed by a subsidence, and left an
empty snacc where the lake had been.
A, big landslide in this countryside,
honeycombed by subsidences due to
brine pumping, occurred abgut twenty
years ago, and in May Inst the lake
formed. TIiitsi months later it suddenly emptied itself and then began
slowly to refill. Traffic in thc vicinity of the i-himomenon was at once
stopped, and precautions have been
taken to prevent further collapses of
larth.���London Mirror.
