Any man who may be inclined to
think that some of t'e modi rn hats
are large should read the fullowing
description of a matinee hai of 1779,
which appears in Mrs. Maxione Graham's book, "The Oliphants of Cask":
"If I had thought of it in time I
would have sent you a drawing of a
cap which I got from Paris, a commission I undertook for a young lady
in Holland.
"It is the admiration of all beholders being in ,he newest and most Court-
worn taste.
"It   has  a  tow'ring  feather  on  the
Right,   a   drooping   one   on   the   Left
and a bouquet of Jasmin in the Centre.
i Likewise a Bouquet of Hyacinths to-
1 wards the Left and a fine Gilly flower
:wi,h Buds almost hid behind the high
Feather on ihe Right.
"The   whole   is  surrounded   with   a
j ow  of  ln ge   Pearls  inot   real),   from
i which hangs down at the left side and
' far back a dangling Bunch of Pearls,
something like a Bell.
"There  is   a  great   deal   of   Blonde

N. G. Mcintosh, a school trustee of
Wright township, Greene county, has
placed a ban on the timc-honered custom
of punishing school children by keeping
them in at recess. The order has been
issued to the teachers in the township and reported to the state board of
health, which has heartily indorsed it.
In his letttr reporting the order, Trustee Mcintosh wrote:
"I do not beli ve it is right to punish children by denying them the privi-
legi of adding 11 their health and
strength."
When Dr. J. N. Hurty, secretary of
the board received the report he made
a long mark on his desk blotter. "Another sign of progress," he said.

No Preparation for Child-Bearing
The home, the school, the vocation,
ihe sta.e, and the church, arc the five
great   institutions   that   iducatc   and
! shape the destinies of the membtfs of
our race.    And what are the requirements for entrance upon the work of
each?  The school teacher must produce
| a certificate indicating a relatively high
��� degree of proficiency. Tho vocation
requires special preparation on the part
\ of   those   who   would   enter   it.     The
! state likewise holds out ita offices only
i to  those  who  a.v comparatively  well
| fitted by natur*- and experience to occupy such positions.    The minister in
the church must pass through a long
period of study and probation before
the day of his ordination.
But what of the home-builders?  There
is no required preparation of any consequence,   whatever.     The   weak,   the
halt, thc diseased, the ignorant, and the
criminal,   are   permitted  to  share  tht
sacred   office   of  child-bearing   equally
along with the  physically strong, the
erudite and the pure in spirit.    It is
\ an anomalous situation.   We have spe-
| cial college courses in poultry raising,
' pig raising  and  horse brieding, while
parents go right along in the good old
��� way rearing children by gut��s, hearsay
' and supt-rs.ition. As a constqut-nce, the
I first children in many a family are used
ifor experimental purpoaca, and though
they may !*��� well born, their prospects
of a useful career are often blighted
forever.
The  lime  will  come,  yea   it   must
come, when  the state will require all
prospective   home-builders,   before   entering  the  marriage  relation,   to  take
I a  thorough   course  in  human   animal
; breeding and child rearing.   Until such
i thing can be brought about we must go
Ion  blundering  fearfully  in  respect  to
j these  matters.    Parents  all  about  us
j are   failing  sadly  in  their  efforts   to
train their children in the home, not so
| much   because   of  indifference   as   be-
I cause   of   lamentable   ignorance.     For
example, they commit again and again
! the serious fault of assuming that it is
'soon enough to train a child to work!
��� when he has become old enough to take
| part in productive labor.   But nothing
could be further from the truth.   On the
Otbff hand, much effort  and patience I
must be experienced in training the child ���
'to the principles fundamental in woru'
Large red apples when served whole
at the table are polished with olive oil.
A cold boiled potato may be used as
a paste substitute for fastening back
bits of torn wall paper.
In making a cake, grease the tin
with sweet lard rather than butter, and
sift a little dry flour over it.
When making a steamed or boiled
p dding pleat in the cloth at the top to
allow the pudding to swell.
The soft brushes used for polishing
hardwood floors may be washed most
thoroughly by the use of kerosene.
When beating eggs observe that
thtrt is no grease on the whisk, as it
will prevent the eggs from frothing.
A glazier's knife will be found an
excellent thing with which to scrape and
clean the bottoms of tins and kettles.

SIR   DONALD   MANN   GIVES   HIS
VIEWS ON RECIPROCITY

Ottawa, Ft-b. 11.���Sir Donald Mann
in an inuxviiw on tht* reciprocity trt-my
says:
"I bcliivu no hanii can come Lo our
Canadian railways from this reciprocity a-fre-mi-nt. It is trut that more
traffic will flow sou.hwurd acraaa tho
boundary. On thc oihir hand, the
wider murki i o|h> cd to ihe pradueta
of the prairie Provinces will a ,ract a
BTeator number of m-uki* from Eu-
ropt anil the United SlataS. Their pre-
sinr. will create more busin-.ss for the
Canadian railways eaat and west as
����� 11 as north and south.
"At present the transportation of
Canadian grain from the point of .in-
Kin lo the terminal elevators at I'uri
Arthur and Koi. William is in the
hands of Canadian railways. Bu. from
those points eastward ,.o both American and Canadian t xpon poin s it is
largely carried by watir. Tic Canadian Pacific Railway car. .is by the
Ioiik rail haul around the north shore
of Lake Supi'rior a certain amount of
wheat to be shipped as ballast in its
steanu rs crossing the Atlantic. I believe Canatiian railwuyi- will awlays
control the all rail export traffic in
Canadian grown wheat.
"In uny event it is evident that
whatever maybe the effect on Canadian railways, the situation is in the
hands of thc Uni.cd Siati-s. We have
alwayH tfcogniad tha: ul ima.ely the
United Stiu-m would rmiove tho duty
from wheat, regardless of whai Canada
does.
"On sentimental grounds, und in
common with many Canadians, I would
prefer u reciprocal tariff arrangement
with the United Kingdom, but, lhat
aside, I can BOO only benefit in improvement of trade rilutions with the
United statu-."
DETECTIVES GET

DISGUISED   AS   HINDOOS   THEY
ARE WELCOMED AS PREY
Forty-aix Celeatiala in the Bag-
Officer Held Them up and Took
Them into Cuatody with Money

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Feb. 11.���The Vancouver
detective force adopted u clever ruse in
rder to get hold of u gumbling joint

forty-six celestials into custody along
with all their money and gambling
outfits.
The detectives knew a watch was kept
for spies so they dressed themselves
up us Hindoos and instead of being
taken for spies were ushered in us prey.
Once inside thc joint thu doctetives

A   Splendid   Bill For Some People
Every tradesman or property owner in Prince Rupert who feels ihai he is
noi paying enough (or his lire Inaurance will hail wilh gliii the new Fire Insurance
Bill which Mr. Bowser introduced In In Legislature last Friday. It will res It
in an increase of .wo pur cent on tho amount now paid as premium, when the Bill
becomaa law.
The Bill is not discriminatory, t is not apoclally designed to knock Prince
Rupert. EveryOtU within cho Province will have their insurance rates raised without reaped u> creed or polidca.   In that reapoct ..he bill is a ver   ust one.
The Bill provides that no outside company will he able to operate within the
Province without paying $250 for a liconao and depositing -20,000 with the Treasury, and no citizen of Bri.ish Columbia will be allowed to purchase insurance
from nulla mod companies outaide lho Pr vinco without paying to the Government,
taxation a, ,1-.' rate ot two per cent DOT annum on the premiums. On the face of
it it is u piece o( Uglslbiion worthy of tht bureaucracy of Russia.
Tin* pretext which is to Im employed to deceive ihe ignorant is lhat ihe bill
ia to "protect" the British Columbia lire insurance tompan'es by giving them a
two |n.r cent advantage over iheir comin-iitors. But in order to thus increase
the profi.s of those people who hold stock in the British Columbia fire insurance
companies, every purchaser of lire insurance in the province is to be taxed two
per com. The government is going to "protect" the fire insurance in.crests by
increasing the cost of insurance to th, consumer.
The way t he matter will work out is this. The work of insuring risks in British
Columbia is principally don. by outside companies. It is their competuio i ihai
*K*.:i lho ra es, which even at present seem unduly high.

OUR SPECIAL surpasses all others, lb.
Washington, Feb. 10.���Anticipating
the formation of a multimillion dollar
telephone trust, the United States department of justice today detailed
special agenta to investigate every step
taken by representative of the Independent Telephone Association, which
is meeting in Chicago thia week
It is report d thai a plan is being
considered  to    connect    all  the independent systems in the United States
with   the   Bell-Morgan  system.    This
.combination, if effecive, would apply
,   ,.     _       to all toll service, and particularly to
Ladies Free  .. ,    , __
I those  sections   of  the  country   where
competition between present systems is
said to li. ruinous.
The department of j slice holds lhat
thc project is likel-, to become a eombi-|
nation in restraint of trade, und it is
probable thai any aic|>s taken toward
its completion may bo considered illegal
and action begun al once.
On lhe pari of the promoters ol the
combine il is likely thai an injunction'
will be sought 15 prevent tho int.rfer-'
I ence of lhe government.

Charleton, Ont., Feb. 11.--It is feared
in these parts that two settlers, Ford
Teeyle. and John McCoy, have perished in thu wilds. Two weeks ago
they left here to go on a trapping and
prospecting expedition. They took dogs
and four days' provisions with them.
Th y have not returned. Their provisions must long since have run out.
The prevailing belief is that the men
were overtaken on their homeward
way by the storm which raged through
the country, and without food or shelter
lay down in the snow and died from
exposure.

j CHIPS FROM THE
! HUMORISTS I
An Irishman was sitting in a depot
smoking when a woman came in and,
sitting down besidu him, remarked:
"Sir, if you were* a gentleman you
would not smoku hero."
"Mum," he said, "if you wuz a lady
y 'd sit father away."
Pretty soon thc woman burst forth
again:
"If you were my husband I'd give you
poison."
"Well, mum," returned the Irishman,
as he puffed away at his pipe, "if you
\vuz me wife I'd take it."
The young husband halted at the gate
and retraced his ste|>s.
"Did you come back for another kiss,
dear?" inquired thc bride.
"We'l, I'll tak,, anothir kiss, but what
I came back for was my overshecs."
"Bridget," said Mrs. Grouchoy. "I
don't like thc looks of that man who
called to see you Inst night.
"Well, well," replied Bridget, "ain't
it funny, ma'am? He said the same
about you."
T. e freshman class in trignometry
was reciting.
"And have you proved thia proposition?" asked thc "math, prof."
"Well," said the freshman, "proved is
rather a strong word, but I can say that
I have rendered it highly probably."

"And how did the young couple   fare?
"Excellently. The groom's mother
donated 10,000 trading stamps and the
bride's father gave them enough tobacco
coupons to furnish their parlor."
Always Unfortunate
Here I stand within the hall,
For the elevator bawl
With a frown. ���
"Going up?" I loudly cry,
And the urchin makee r.-Ipy,
"Going down."
Here you see me buying stocks,
Hoping to acquire both rocks
And renown.
"Going up?" I loudly say,
But my broker answers "Nay,
Going down."
When old Charon I shall meet,
Looking mystical, but neat,
In his gown.
"Going up?" I'll murmur low,
And he'll doubtless answer "No,
Going down."

In proportion to ita length, thi re are

"Vanity of vanity; all is vanity."
"All is vanity and  vexation of spirit.
"The race is not to the swift."
"All lhe rivers run to the Bca, yet the
sea is not full."
"A living dog is better than a dead
lion."
"Woo to him that is alone whan he
falloth."
"Cast thy broad upon the waters."
"Of making many books there is no
end."
"���or the Pitcher bo broken at the
well."
