Tho defeat of the French cabinet on the question of
whether the proposed issue of government bonds should
be taxed has produced such a crisis in France as has not
been known in that country of crises for years. The true
meaning of the loan is financial preparation by France
for war, and the proposal to tax the government bonds has
dealt a blow to French prestige that is stupendous,"while
the forced postponement of the loan lessens the republic's
readiness for trouble.
As a lesson to other nations the affair in Paris teaches"

The command of money has become in international politics a factor equally as great as the control of men and today the situation bears the aspect of being altogether in j

Every year sees greater numbers added to the inter-,
national party striving for universal peace and every year
sees public sentiment Veering a little more in the direction j
of curtailing the tremendous, useless expense involved in
keeping super-dreadnoughts afloat and regiments armed
for battle.   The war men of the different nations are do- \
ing their best to keep up their cry, but they do not seem
to realize that in increasing the yearly expenditures they
are gradually making strife too costly and thus forcing on the world the adoption of the peacemakers' idea
that war is an unnecessary evil.
Somebody suggests raising rabbits to cut down the

The Late Pauline Jo'-.ns-   Wa. . Fas
cinating Figure.
Pnuline Johnson, the well-known
Canadian Indian poetess, who died
in Vancouver, B.C., recently, was a
picturesque and ipter.ftmg personality. She was a princess ol llie Mohawk tribe ol North American Indians, lier native name bi'in^ Teka-
hionwake. She was a daughter of an
Indian chief anil was born near
Ilrantford, Ont., March 10. 1.62. Inheriting the love of outdoor life and
the beauties of nature from her father's people, she received literary tendencies largely from her mother's
Through tier English mother, Emily
Howells, she was related to the well-
known writer, William Dean Howells.
There was real romance in the mar-
riase of the Indian chief and the
white girl, who visited the Mohawk
reserve with her sister, the wife ol a
Church-of England clergyman. The
meeting between the handsome young
chief and the young Kngiish u'irl eiid-d
in their falling in love. Tliey wer*
married and the little roughcast liouse, ]
where Pauline was born, still stands.
The young girl was earetully educated, and early in lite began to writ-!
verse, hut she first came Into proml- J
nence as b poet-entertainer in H9'2,
when she appeared in Toronto and
read selections from her own works.
Her dramatic power and the s'ri'-'ular
fore and beauty of her lines made an .
instant literary sensation. Some years
thereafter she traveled, giving public
entertainments until ill health c<,m
pelled h-r to retire. She visited England in lf!'J4, and while there publisn-
ed a volume ol poems called The
White Wampum. She again visited
England in I'JOG as an entertainer and
wns well received wherever she appeared. In 1:111 her Legends of Van-
couver appeared, a volume of short
sketches and local stories, which had
been told to the gifted Indian girl
by the celebrated chief, Joe Capilano
This is the only proifi work whicli
Miss Johnson has published Flint
ind Feather. Mis-* Johnson's last vol-
jme, was published only a lew week;
Socially, Pauline Johnson was a ile- I
lightful woman, possessed of a gracious dignity, charming cordiality and
simplicity of manner und was a vt na.
tile conversationalist. Sh: was equal
ly at home i.i the realms ol politics,
literature or urt. Hit campaign son,',

Most of all she loved to write about
the history and legends of her own
people and her poems 'in Indian subjects are full of life and lire. Nothing
Stronger than As Red Men Die win

more jynjpatbitl-5 with nature ir more
artistic than In April.
Recently when His Royal Highness,
the Duke of Connaught, who is a Mohawk chief by adoption, was in the
west, he visiU-d Miss Johnson an I
talked with her familiarly of tormei
days, During the visit the poetess
wore about lier throat a line gold
chain, from which was suspended a
unique gold star | resented to her by
admirer* in the west on her final
visit to Vancouver as the premier lady
canoeist ol Canada. To her love of
canoeing we owe the beautiful poem.

We*t  wind,  blow  from  your  prairie
Blow Irom the mountains, blow from

The sail is idle, the sailor too;
O! wind of Uie west; we wail for you.
Blow!  Wow!
I have wooed you so,
Itut never a favor you bestow.
Vou rock your cradle the hills between
Hut scorn' to notice my white lateen.
I stow  the  sail,  udbIiip  the  mast;
I wooed you long, but , j wooing'i

lasl written by the late E. Pauline
Johnson, the Indian poetess, who died
in Vancouver a little over a yenr ago.j
There nre fires on l.ulu Island, and tas
sky Is opalescent
With the pearl and purple tinting from
the smouldering of pent.
And the Dream Hills lift tlieir summits
in a sweeping, ha/.y orescent,
With the e'upiltnio canyon nt their feot.
There are (ires on l.ulu Island, and the
smoke, iiiilit'ting lingers
In   a   faded   senrf   < f   fragrance   ns   it
creeps across the day,
And the Inlet  and  tne Narrows blur
b.'i.eiiih ils silent lingers.
And the canyon is enfolded in ils grey.
Hut thfl sun its face is veiling 1:1. n
cloistered nun ��t vespers;
As towards tbe aitar candles of the
night n conser swings,
And the echo of tradition 'wakes frum
slumbering nnd whispers,
Where   the   Capilano   Kiver sobs und!
It wns Yaada, lovely Yaada, who lirst*
taught the stream its sighing.
For   'twas   silent   till   her   coming,   aud
'tuns voiceless aa the shore,
But throughout the grent forever it will
sin : the song undying
That the lips of [overs sing for ever

The things that men appreciate above everything
else are the practical gifts of things for every day
use���things that the recipient would buy for himself.
And then, too, you raise his opinion of you just
another bit higher when you present him with something practical and sensible-something he would
buy for himself.
Every time he wears the Scarf, the Shirt or the
Cravat or House Coat, or the Bathrobe, or the Hose,
or the Suspenders, or the Gloves which you gave him,
he thinks of you. Every time some friend speaks a
word of admiration for the gift you made him, it
brings a happy recollection of you.
Every time he sees the ornamental, perhaps, but
unuseful gift of someone else, he unconsciously remembers you for your practical, useful gift of something to wear.
So, when you select a present for "him,"remember
men are practical. They cherish the memory of a
practical, useful gift, bat soon forget the opposite
And make your gift to "him" something he will
really like better than all the present he receives���let
it be something he can wear.
And don't lose sight of the fact that most men instinctively  know  that anything which bears this store's label is absolutely rijfht in style and dependable
in quality.

Apiculture, ns the science nml practice of bee-keeping is called, has of
late years become a very profitable
occupation. Il may seem strange to
talk of a "hue farm," yet lhere are
many sueh farms in this country, devoted almost exclusively to tba rearing of bees. There are two ways of
making a profit out of hces, either hy
IN sale ol the honey they produce,
cr by the rearing and sale ot the
I,ees themselves.
in order io run a bee farm successfully It Is necessary, of course, to
lecome acquainted with tbe ways and
! ablts of tho bees themselves. A hive
consists of a queen, drones, and workers. Only one queen lo a hive; she
will brook no rival, her nil" must be
absolute. She lakes her consort from
i mong the drones, and produces both
drones and workers. Al (lie end of
the busy season the drones are either
I 'lied or turned OUt to perish us useless encumberances. An average hive
contains about 25,000, a large one as
many as 50,000.   Five ihousand bees
weigh  aliotil   a pound  when they are
charged with boney, The weight ot
starved bees is hardly perceptible, it
sometimes happens, In dispatching
them by rail for a journey ol several
(i*i.s, they will arrive at iheir destination either dead or In a very poor
condltlou, This is due to carelessness
or Inexperience. In buying bees by
weight from any distance, allowance
* 'soli Ui always be made for deterioration In transit, as they con: ume
tin '.   own homy.
A farm may, of course, consist c.f
sny number of hive.. A queen is
ready for fertilization fyom three to
1 ve days after birth. The worser be *
live only two or (hree months, but
li. ��� queens will exl I for bi v, ml years.
If a queen should die permaturely, or

,\t one time beea made tbelr own
combs: now tbey are r ved Cut trouble, for lie coml b ire made for ibem.
Tbe process Is v ir; Interesting. l>ir-
wax Is melted In a metal receptacle
cml kepi hot. Immediately above Hi s,
suspended from the celling, Is a contrivance like a wooden comb, the
teeth hem: strips of wooden board.
Tbe latter are o.unged Hire" or iour
times into the molton wax, wblc,
���... en it sels, can l>" p- ded off In
p' eels. Having become stiiT. it In
dipped In warm water to make lr
limp, and then passed ^between two
metal rollers, which stamp il wld
tlm pattern whicb the bees work upon
and draw out, thus forming Hi" cells.
I arger a Id thicker slieeis are required for c,e breeding franits than for
the honey frames, 'lhe wan sheets
are fitted in the Ives for the h.-es to
���������ork upon. It says much fo their
Intelligence that they readily accepted thh substitute for iheir own liandl-
\; i k.
lf there should he more than one
queen In a blve un" of tbe queens wlll
have It wilh a  following.   They will
"swarm"  upo.i   a   neighboring   tree,
'and must be hived. Tbls Is comettmes

Swarming is principally for breeding, and should be prevented aa much
ss poistble In  th" Interests of honey
l production.   The prices of beea differ
; a, cording   lo   Ihe   Ume  of  lhe   yea-.
: Kar Instance. In May and .lune a I.I

July a Irllle less, in August and Sep-
