On    two    re'ent   occasions,     when
school children were to the for*,   attention    was   called b.v disinterested
[observers to their  lack of   courtesy,
ir_toys Thc Globe.
The Governor-General, in addressing the children in the park on Empire Hay, said: ""With all the self-
reliance that marks a new country
. like this, it would be well to remem-
lre.r the gcncrois traditions and the
courteous manners of the old country. There was sometimes a tendency to demonstrate self-reliance by
a want of respect to fellow-men and
to thos? in authority."
Mr. William Scott, Principal of the
Normal School, speaking at the
luncheon given by the directors of the
Exhibition on "School Children's
Dav," contrasted the kind and courteous ways of the boys and girls of
Quebec with thc rudeness, or at least
bluntness, of those in Ontario. He
had considerable expc: ience in Quebec, and was inclined to think one
reason for the difference is that the
people there live in the past, while
those of thin Province arc more democratic.

debate in Allegheny, I'n., will I e
[.fbduetive of great, good. From
«i. special issue of The IMttshurg
Cnze! te,'wliieli has come («- us,
we learn Mint, it six-day i'eli»ions
debate has been caiiied on iu t lie
Allegheny Music 11 all between Dr.
Kat.011, of the M. E. Church, and
I'asttu1 Russell, I_endei- of a. body
commonly called 'The Millennial
Dawn. Telling points were litinle
by both sides, ami the debate in
every sense is worth the reading.
Our particular reason for calling
attention to the debate is twofold, namely, because it removes
from our mind tin erroneous impression of Russell's leaching respecting a probation for man after death; and it shows that men
disagree only iu non-essentials
when the deciding standard between relifiiouscontestants is the
Word of God alone.
Iu our hearing, before this de-
bale came to hand, Mr. Russell
was referred to as a, teacher of
Ihe belief that those who have
rejected the message of Christ in
this life will have another probation after death. Mr. Russell denies this, aud says that this after
death probation is not suggested by scripture save to such who
iu this life had no chance to hear
Ihe gospel of Christ. "I nui not
s lying,"' remarked Mr. Russell in
the lirst day's debate, "that if it
is true of you, as it wiih of the
apostles", 'Messed are your eyes
for they see, ami your ears, for
they hear,' that you will have a-
nother chance after death to take
anotoer glimpse and to hear further of divine mercy, if you fail
to tise your privileges now."
We give this note in order that
t.n this important subject Mr.
Itussell may be understood and
wrong impressions correcte.|.

.Sometimes, when he was • living
with his parents at Denmark Hill,
he would enjoy a surreptitious row
on the river. "I - used to bo to.U,"
says the same companion', "not to
let hi» father and mother know wherj
he had gone."' Kuskin was then in
the forties.
It is easy to read here a woman's
fears and prejudice and dom nation.
Kuskin was always, quite properly,
under his mother's control; but it is
possible that if ho hud tad the outlet of reasonable athletics his destructive moods would have bein
less marked. It was during his residence at lienmark Hill that he was
anathematizing something or somebody  most un.oasonobly.
"John," said his mother, "you
tulk too much and you talk nonsense."
"Yes, mother," Itnskin replied, aa
humble as a little boy, and changed
the subject.
Ruskin was not afraid to admit to
M.hors la sides h;s mother that he
was wrong. In a lecture at Oxford
when he was Slade prol'esror, S.r
William Richmond defended the
feme which the world had accoided
to Miehelanl'elo and Rafael. 1 oiiner-
ly Kuskin had denounced Michelangelo, and was not very we'l pleased
with Sir William for presenting the
cither side. When Kuskin recovered
from the illness which hnd caused
him to give up the Slade protosdor-
ship, Sir William retired, that he
might till it again. Touching by
this, Kuskin sent, asking if he might
come down and dine wilh his former pupil, Who was delighted to have
him. At the close of a pleasant
evening, Kuskin suid:
"Willy, why did you make that
violent attack upon me about Michelangelo?"
"Mr. Kuskin, becnuse you talked
nonsense," ivplied Sir William.
Meanwhile Mr. Kus'.in rose to go.
"You are quite fight, Willy." he
said, in his candid way. "It was

Haggart came home on a Saturday
evening, when the water-liarr..ls were
running over, and our muddy roads hud
:]pst their grip. But at all times he took
.small note of the weather, and often said
it was a fine day out of politeness to the
acquaintances he met casually, when
Tillyloss dripped in rain. To a man who
has his loom for master it only occurs at
an afterthought to look out at the window.
His shortest and natural route would
have taken the wanderer to Tillyloss
Without zigzagging him through the rest
nf Thrums, but he made a circuit of the
town, and came marching down the
"I wanted to burst upon the place sudden like," he admitted, "and to let
everybody see me. I dinna deny but what
It was a proud moment, lads, as Thrums
came in sicht. I had naturally a sort of
contempt for the placey. and yet I was
fell awid to be back in it too, just as a
body is glad tc slip into his bed at nicht.
Ay, foreign pnrts is grand for adventure,
hut Thrums for eomfiany.''
At the top of the Roods he was recognized by two boys who had been to q
farm for milk, end were playing at
swinging their flagon over their heads
without dropping its contents. The apparition stayed the flagon in the air, and
the boys clattered off screaming. Their
father had subsequntly high words with
Tammas, who refused to refund tbe price
of the milk.
"Though my expectations was high,"
Haggart said, "they were completely
beaten by the reality. Nothing could
have been more gratifying than the sensation I created, not only among laddies
and lassies but among grown men and
women. Very weel I ken that Dan'l
Straohen pretends he stood his ground
when I came upon him at the mouth of
Sauners Rae's close, but whaur was the
honor in that, when the crittur was paralyzed with fear? Ay, he wasna the only
man that lost his legs in the Roods that
day; Will'um Crewe being another.
Snecky Hobart, you was one of them as
I walked into at Peter Lambie's shop
door, and I'll never speak to ye again il
ye dinna allow as I scattered ye like a
showman in the square does when he
passes round the hct."
; "I allow, Tammas, as I made my feet
my   friend that nicht."
"And did I no send the women flying
and skirling in all directions? Was it me
or was it no me that made Mysy Dlnnic
faint on her back in the corner of the
"It was you, Tammas, and michty
boastful the crittur was when she came
to, and heard she had fainted."
"And there's a curran women as says
they hung out at their windows looking
at ine. I would like to hear of one proved
case in which ony woman did that except
at a second story window?"
"Sal, they didna dare look out at low
windows. Na, they were more like putting on their shutters."
"And did some of them no bar their
doors, and am I lying when I say Lis-
beth Whamand up with hor bairn out of
the cradle and ran to the door of the
Auld Licht kirk, thinking I couldna
harm her there?"
"You're speaking gospel, Tammas.
And it wasna to be wondered ut that wo
should be terrified, seeing we hod buried
ye five months before."
"I'm no saying it was unnatural. I
would have been particular annoyed if ye
had been so stupid as to stand your
ground. And what's more, if I had met
the Auld Licht minister he would have
run like the rest."
But this oft-repeated assertion of Haggart's was usually received in silence.
His extraordinary imagination enabled
him to conceive this picture, but to such
a height we never rose.
By the time Haggart reached the Tene-
' ments the town had sufficiently recovered
to follow him at a distance. How he
looked to the populace has heen frequently discussed, Peter Lambie's description
being regarded as the best.
"Them of, you," Peter would say,
drawn to the door of his shop by Haggart groups, "as has been to the Glen
Quharity Hieland sports, can call to
mind the competition for best-dressed
Hielander. The Hielanders stands in
their glory in a row, and the grand leddies picks out the best-dressed one. Weel,
the competitors tries to look as if they
didna ken they were being admired, implying as they're indifferent to whether
i.hey get the prize or no, but all the time,
there's a sort of pleased smirk on their
,aces, mixed up with a natural anxiety.
_y, then, that's the look Tammas Hag-
,art had when he passed my shop."
"But ye saw a change come ower him,
lid ye no?"
"I did. I was among them as ran after
im along the Tenements, and, though I
ast saw his back, it wasna the back   he
..ad on when he passed mv shoo   1 would
say, judging from his back, as bis chest
wus sticking out, and he walked with a
sort of strut, like the Hielander as has
won the prize and kens it would be a
haver to make pretence of modesty ony
"But ye never saw me look back,
Pete," Haggart said, when Lambie's version was presented to him.
"Na, it was astonishing how he could
have kept frae turning your head. Ye
was like one unaware that there was sieh
a crowd running after ye."
"Ay, lad, but very weel I kent for all
that. Thinks I to mysel' as I walks on
before ye—' This scene winna be forgotten
for many a year.' ''
"And it will not, Tammas. It did the
work of the town for a nine days. Ay,
I've often said myself that yoi» walked
hame that nioht more like a circus procession than a single man. The only
thing I a kind of shake my head at is

Priest Islands, from the fact that
they were coloni od by the Irish Catholics who first introduced Chiisti-
anity. 1 hire was a solitary troi't

that now remains is a ruined homestead, for the place is used purely
for gra ing purposes. A striking
feature of the isles is the fact that
no mice can live there, ar.d on vat'i-

South Africa oi tne woFK accomplished in locating and curing lor thc
(.'una-lian soldiers' gia\es. the difli-
cu.t.e.t which have been encountered
and overcome have been many. Owing to the great distances and the
unsettled state of the country, oven
for a long period after peace was de-
cla ed, transportation to certain
distr.cts was, until quite recently,
refused to travelers. In addition, the
unusual climatic conditions, the vagaries of the South Af. ican vegetation, "which at some seasons has the
vitality of Jonah's gourd, and at
others the appaient dryness of Aaron's rod," have all contributed to
make the work of the Guild- of Loyal
Women of South Africa- an almost
impossible task. How faithfully the
guild has worked is shown in a report from the secretary of the Central Committee, Cape Town, who
states that no single grave that
could by any reasonable possibility
be reached by members of the guild
has remained unyisited.
At Woodstock,  Modder River, W:yn-
berg,  Bioemfontein and other    places
all the outlying graves,    as \vel>   as
those in the cemeteries,  aie in excellent order,  and decorated  with  flowers at  Christmas and Easter by  the
branches in those places.  At Magers*
fontein and  l'aardeberg only   a   verv
few months have elapsed since it was
possible   for     ladies    to    visit    the j
graves.   Now the work is being pushed   forward   as  rapidly  as     possible,   |
and the    Toronto secretary has    re- j
ceived     very  encouraging  ietteis     of
the progress    made  from the    sccre- '_
tar ies of the branches in    charge    of |
those graves.    At Paardeberg several j
permanent    stones have been erected  •
by relatives,  through the   agency   of
the Ixjyal Ouild of Women.
Money hus been sent from time to
timo by the Imperial Order of
Daughters of the Empire for all Canadian graves, and with special instructions that the Canadian graves
at Paardeberg and Hart's River be
put in order without delay at the
expense of the Canadian fund. Up
to date the amount sent to South
Africa by the i.O.D.E. totals S850,
the rest of the fund subscribed having been invested, the income therefrom to be expended annually for
the care of the graves.

characteristic of womankind. After a
series of pads all round—pads that
always seem to me to invite a thorough good and well-deserved spanking—next spring we are to be treated, according to the fashion-mongers,
to "skin-tight gowns, that will havo
no hips." This decree is seemingly
promulgated at this season in order
that every woman may have ample
time to remove her hips. Of course,
this means only those cleverly designed, but not always deceptive
panniers, which at times creukinglv
betray their presence and make every
latitudinal protuberance to be regarded with suspicion. They will now
go to join the bustle in the attic.
But no one can imagine that the fair
sisterhood mean to wear "skin-tight
gowns" over a natural framework
that has not often been moulded on
the best lines of art. The dressmaker will now be put to the pains
of designing a figure as well as a
costume, and as a natural consequence, a dress may be two inches
thick in one place, where it is only
that of a sheet of paper in am l hor.
Clothes are no longer a mutter of design and color combination. The
"occupant" of the coming di'OBU will
have to look as 11 she has been poured into it. It will be with much
compassion that the .masculine world
will look on this ncw -development in
the fashions of their sisters. It
means that woman, poor woman, is
to be more uncomfortable and costly
than ever.—Captious One, in Toronto

Attracting Attention
on account of
i. Its Fraser River Placers.        --,____,
As far back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beel
bar, near the town of Lillooet.   The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
Uie present time.
A company is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $350,000, to operate an improved
dvedge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.=-^
Anderson lake and bridge river mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles o_  territory  that remain unprospected
3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds-^*-**--
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts oi the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here.   Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound.    Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
I liea luxury.
4. Its Salubrious Climate.
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
he climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit may be grown, and
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in the gardens of the town
Nearest Railway towns are ashcroft and lytton, on the Canadian pacific railway.

An effort is being made to stock
Ontario forests with capercailzies,
the famous game hird of northern
Europe. Under the direetion of Mr.
Thomas Gibson, Director of Provincial Parks, 30 birds have been imported from Norway and were recently released in Algonquin Park. The
greatest care was laki ti with tho
shipment, and the birds were in good
shape  when released.
They cost $8 each in Sweden, and
the cost of transportation was no
small amount. A special commissioner was sent to New York to meet
them, and take thein to their new
The capercailzie is a large, glossy,
black grouse, and as it thrives in all
the pine forests of Northern Europe,
it is thought that it should get
along in Ontario. It became extinct
in Scotland and Ireland during the
eighteenth century, and has heen
reintroduced to the Highlands by
methods similar to those now adopted by the Ontario Government. Thc
bird is familiarly known as "Cock o'
the Woods."
An effort was formerly made by Mr.
Gibson and three were imported.
They were placed in Rondeau Park on
LaKe Eric and tho weather turned
very warm. To make thein more
comfortable their keeper moved them
to a shady, cool place, and next
morning found their throats had
been cut by a weasal.
It is hoped this trial will have
better luck. Mr. Gibson, who is still
in Northern Ontario, saw them released, and says that most of them
rose straight up and went off to the
wilderness. Others were more affected by the two weeks' confinement,
but after hobbling around for a few
minutes they, too, took to the
