FIRST SUBMARINE.
|~«'.« Sarvlvitr of   I Ii.t   V«»s«l of  the Sort
Eur Mixlr.
Mr.   W.   A.   Alexander  is  the
survivor of the first submarine to be
I successfully operated in time of war,
and ought ihc»eiot« to be a peison
hi interest at the present moment,
vhen submarihes Seem expected to
day.so great a role in modern naval
Warfare. The first submarine was a
most primitive boat, hand-driven,
and constructed out of a cylinder
boiler 25 feet long. As a member of
the artillery it fell to Mr. Alexander's lot to build the submarine, and
he did it, without, of course, having
any .experience -to guide him. Mr.
Alexander, a white-haired, gentle old
man, would not give anybody thc impression that he would J show daredevil courage enough to go down in
__v boat that had already three times
I drowned it* c.few of nine men.   Mr.
Alexander was only prevented by   a
mere, chance irom going out on the
last occasion   when   tho Confederate
submarine disappeared witbMv. Ved-
efaf   cruiser     sfle destroyed.     There
•wns  no  means   of replenishing   the
air supply, and once when a test was
being made as to how long the boat
could remain   under water a candle
would not   burn more   than twenty-
I tivo    minutes,    so  rapidly  did     the
[breathing   of the    nine men   of the
[crew oxhaust' tho oxygen.     It gives
some idea of the nature of these men
I that they  remained  below  the   sur-
f face   of the   water some   two hours
1 after    the     candle    wast    out.—St.
I James' Gazette.

Major G. II. G. Mockler, 30th Bur-
'■ ma Infantry, at present attached to
the intelligence branch at Simla,
whose appointment to command the
i«ew Coolie Corps, now being raised
i for service in Somaliland, was announced in The Times of 8th September, is one of the officers who
came under prominent. notice during
the operations of the allies in China
in 1900. Referring to the appointment, The Englishman eays: "Owing,
in the first instance, to, his extraordinary gift of languages, Major
\' Mockler was appointed chief of pol
ice at Tientsin. At that time tht
settlement was overrun not only by
ruffians of every nationality, but was
garrisoned by troops belonging to
various armies, large numbers of
whom had got quite out of hand ow.
ing to the excesses they had been
permitted to indulge in on landing
Major (then Captain) Mockler organised a police force, and presently
law-breakers found that they got a
very short shrift. For a few weeks
the chief of police went in danger of
his life. One attempt of assassination nearly succeeded, but in the
course of a -month or two, while the
rest of northern China was still in
in uproar, Tienstin became a model
town. Tho officers of the foreign
nowers found some difficulty in believing thnt the terrible chief of
nolice was a mere captain in the
Ind'.-a aimy."
A Matter of Tnr.t Ik,*. '
There arc prosaic men and women,
..nd     there a<e matter of fact dogs.
Wor    purely business purposes    they
jure often the best.
We once owned an excellent, retriev-
■,ig    spaniel of the simple order    of
nind,    without    a    grain ol humor
Ihis    dog accompanied    us unasked
..hen we wanted to shoot a bullfinch
i the garden to stuff.    The gun went
ilf, ami the poor bullfinch dropped.
Now. this dog had been used, when
• lie    gun was fired, to go and    look
*'»r a doad or wounded rabbit.    So,
''intend  of  looking  under  the   apple
roe,   he  disappeared  into the hedge.
nd    in a few     minutes he returned
ith a ru libit in his mouth f So much
r 'J~o  value  of a matter of    fact

Britain was first made known to
tha civilized wen Id by thc famous
Koman general, Julius Caesar, in ihe
year bb before the birth oi Lhiist.
Caesar had conquered Caul, a country which included oar present i ranee
and Belgium, and brought it under
thc rule of Home; but in the course
of his conquest he learned that . to
thc west, of Otytil lay an island named Britain, whose peoples weie mainly of the sanio race with the Gauls
and gave them help in their struggles against thc Roman armies.. Ho
resolved, therefore, to invade Britain, and in two successive descents
he landed on its (shores, deieaied the
Britons, and penetrated at last beyond the ihampsr.. ~No event in history is InoJe mcmoiuble than this
landing of Caesar. In it the greatest man of the. Roman race made
known to the world a land «hose-
people in the after-time were to recall, both in their temper and in the
breath of their rule, the temper and
Empire of Rome. Caesar, however,
was recalled from Britain by ruings in
Gaul, and ior a hundred yoars more
the island remained unconquered. It.
was not till the time of the Eniper-
or Claudius that its conquest was
again undertaken, and a war which
only ended under the Emperor l.o.ui-
tinn at last brought all the spnl.il-
ern part of tho island under the rum
of Rome. Britain I'cmainod a province of the Roman Empire for n ore
than thiee hundred years. During
this time its tribes were reduced tt>
order, the land was riviiuetd, towns
were built, roads made from one end
of the island to the other, mines were
opened, and London grew into one
of the great l orts of the world.
But much oppression was mingled
with this work of progress, and
throughout these centuries thc province was wasted from time to time
by inroads of the unconquered Britons of thc North, whose attacks
grew mora formidable as Rome grew
weaker in her struggle against the
barburians who beset her on every
border. At last thc Empire was forced to withdraw its troops from Britain, and to leave the province to
defend itself against its foes. To aid
in doing this, the Britons called in
bands of soldiers from Northern Germany, who gradually grew iuto a
host of invaders, and became in turn
a danger to thu island. These were
the lirst Fnglishinen who set foot in
Britain. The characteristics of these
remarkable men arc thus described
by John Riihard Green in hii iamous "Short History of the English
people."
For the Fatherland of the English
race wo must look far away noni
England itself, ln the Tilth centu.y
after the birth of Christ the one
country which we know to have
borne the name of Angelin or 1 ng-
land lay within the district whiih is
now culled Sleswick, a district in
the heart of the peninsula that parts
tho Baltic from the northern si as. ,
Its pleasant p_.8iiires, its black-timbered homesteads, its prim littic
townships looking down on inlets of
purple water, were then but a wild
waste of heather and sand, girt
nlong the coast with a sunltss Woodland,' broken here and there by meadows that crept down to the inui-fh-
es a"d the sea. 'lhe dwellers in thi*
district, however, scrtii to hu.e biij'i.
.........i.,     *.-    „*.,i„i„_.     frauiiienl      DI
what was called the Etigle or Fng
lish folk, thc bulk of whom lay
probably in what is now Lower Hanover and Oldenburg. On one side of
them the Saxons oi Westphalia held
the land from the Weser to the-
Rhine; on the other tho Eastphalian
Saxons stretched away to the Elbe.
North again of the fragment of the
English folk in Sleswick lay another kindred tribe, the Jutes, whose
name is still preserved in their district of Jutland. Engle, Saxon, and
Jute all belonged to the same Lou-
lierinan.branch of the Teutonic family, and at the moment when history
discoveres them they were being
drawn tog-llur by the ties of a common blood, common speech, conn, on
social und political institutions.
There is little ground, inleed, for
believing that the three tribes looked on themselves as ontS people, or
that we can as yet apply to them,
save by anticipation, the common
• name of Lnglis-hnun, But ench of
tlieni was. destined to share in ill •
conquest of the land in which W>
live; and it is from the union oj a__
of them w'hen its conquest was eb .1-
pleie that the English people has
sprung.
The ehergy of these peoples foeinl
vent in a restlessness which drove
them to take port in the gi n i ai attack of the German raee on the.Empire of Home. For busy tillers a. d
busy fishers as Englishman were, \7.ny
weie at heart lighters, and their
world was world of war. Trilx! v, a -
red with tribe, and village with village; even within the to.vmhip ' itself feuds parted househoid from
ho-stluid, and passions of hatnd and
vengeance were handed on from iaih-
er to son. Their mood was, a, o e
all, a mooJ of lighting nieii, ->.n-
tureiJnie, telf-reliant, proud; \\ ith a
dush of hardness and cruelty in it.
but ennobled by the Virtues which
spring from war, by personal ■ milage and loyalty to plighted word, by
a high and stern sense of manhood
and the worth of mah. A grim joy
in hard fighting was already characteristic of this race. War was the
Englishman's "shield-play" aud
"sword-game" ; the gleeman's verse,
took fresh lire as lie sang of the riihh
of the host and the crash of its
shield-line. Their arms and weapons, helmet and mailshiit, tall
spear and pavclih, sword and seax.
the short broad dogger that hung h.1
each warrior's girdle, gathered to
tnnni   much of the    letrcnd and     th*
art which gave color anc. poetry to
the life of Englishmen. Fach sword
had its name like a living thing.
And next to their love of war came
their love af the sea. Everywhere
throughout Beowulf's song, a_:
everywhere throughout the liie that
it pictures, we taich the suit whirl Of
tho sea. The 1 nglisl.:iuii: was tin
proud of his s.-a-craft as ol his wiir-
craft; sword in teeth, he pit itgrd ini<..
lhe sea to inept walrus and sen ion;
he told of his whale-chase amidst * Inky waters of the North. Hardly lets
than his love for the sea was th.-
love he hole to tlio ship that tra\er-
seei it. ln the fond playfulness of
English virse the ship was "the
wave-lloatrr,'' th# "feiam-necl ■ tl.''
"like a bird" as it skimmed the
wave-crest, "like a swan," as iis
curved prow breasti-d the "swiin-

A Tillyloss Scandal

Author ol "The Little Minister,"  "Auld Licht Idylls,'
Window in Thrums," Etc., Etc
"A
•'Ho has so, for she's sure to flinsr it at
him by iinel liy like a wet clout-. Women
has terrible memories for what ye blurt
out to them."
"Ye're repeating my words, Rob, as if
they were your own; but what ye say is
true. Women doesna understand about
men's minds being profound-;* than
theirs, and consequently waur t > manage."
"That's so, and It's a truth ye danrna
mention to them. But ye was come to
the outside stair, Tammas."
"Ay, I was. Luds, I climbed that stair
■Jill of a tremble, ani my hand was shaking so muekle that fer a minute I couldna turn the   handle of the door."
"We saw as ye a sort of tottered."
"Ay, I was uneasy; and even when the
door opened I didna just venture inside.
Sa, I had a feeling as it was a judicious
thing to keep a grip of the door. Weel,
lathies, I stood there peeking in, and
what does I see but Chirsty Todd sitting
into the Are, with my auld pipe in her
mouth.   Ay, there she sat blasting."
"How did that affect ye, Tammas."
"How did it affect me? It angered me
most michty to see her enjoying hersel',
and me thocht to be no more."
" 'Ye heartless limmer,' I  says to mysel', and that  reminds   me   as a man is
master in his own house, so  I bangs the
door to and walks in."
v    "Wha spoke first?"
"Oh, I spoke first. I spoke just as her
een liehted on me."
" Ye had suid a memorable thing?"
"1 canna say I did. No, Pete. I just
gave her a sly kind of look, and I says,
'Ay, Chirsty.' "
"She screamed, they say?"
"She did so, and the pipe fell from her
mouth. Ay, it's a gratification to me to
ken thnt she did scream."
".And what happened next?"
"She spyed   at   me   suspiciously; and
says she, 'Tammas   Haggart,   are you in
tho flesh?' to which   1   replies,' I am so,
..Chirsty.' 'Then,' cries she sharply, 'take
your dirty feet off my clean floor 1   "
"And did ye?"
"Ay, I put them on the fender; and
she cries, ' Take your dirty feet off the
fender.'
"Lads, I thocht it was best to sing
small, so I took off my boots, and she
sat glowering at nie, but never speaking.
'Ay, Chirsty,' I says, 'ye've had rain I'm
thinking;' and she suys, 'The rain's
neither here nor there; the question is,
How did you break out?' Ay, the crittur
thoeht I had broken out of my grave."
"We alFthocht that."
"Nat'rally,ye did. Weel, I began my
story ad the beginning, but With the
impatience of a woman she aye said, 'I
ilinna want to hear that, I want to ken
how you broke out." "
"But she wunted to hear about the
siller in the buttons?"
"Ay, but I tried to slither ower the
buttons, fearing she would be j_ud at
me fer spending them. And, loshTmad
she was I I explained to her as I put
them to good use by improving my
mind, but she says, 'Dinna blather about
yonr mind to me, or I'll take the poker
to ye!' Chirsty was always fond of
language."
"But what about the Well-wisher?"
"Oh, that was a, query. I says to
Chirsty, ' I did not forget your sufferings,
Chirsty, for I'm the Well-wisher.' At
first she didna understan 1, but then she
minds and says, 'It was you as sent that
bit cheese with D. Fittis, was it?' Lads,
then it came out as the cheese was standing in the press untouched. Ay, I tore it
in twa with my hands, and out rolls the
guinea. She had never dreamed of there
being siller in the cheese."
"Na, she was terrified to touch the
cheese. I mind when I could have bocht
it frae her for two or three lwiwboes. Ay,
what chances a body misses. But she had
been plensanter with ye after she got the
guinea?"
"I can hardly say that. She nipped it
up quick, and tells me to go on with my
•itory. Weel, I did so in a leisurely way,
iier aye nagging at me to come to the
■ lunrry, us I soon bad to do. I need
-carce tell ye she was michty surpirsed it
vasna me ye buried, but, after that wns
deared up, I saw her mind wasna on
vhat I was saying to her.- No, lad-. I
«•..» the length of Dundee in my st ry
vhen she jumps up, and away she g ies
io the lowest shelf in the dresser. I
•topped in my talk and watched he .
She pulls out the iron and lays it on the
rable, then she shoves a heater into thc
.Ire, and brings an auld dicky out of a
• irawer. Lads, I ht:d a presentiment what
-he was after."
" 'What are ye doing, Chirsty?' I snys
■vith misgivings.
" 'I'm to iron a dicky for ye to wear
:.-morrow,' she cries, and she kicks ray
.oot off the fender.
" 'I'm no going to the kirk,' I warns
i er.
" 'Are ye no?' dhe snys; 'ye gnng
iWine, Tammas Hfiggart, though the
\uld Lbht minister has to drive ye to
.10 door with a stick '
"Ay, when I heard she had joined tho
Auld Licht 1 kant 1 wns done with lax "
Sabbaths. Weel. she ironed away at that
dicky with tremendous energy, and then
all at once she lays down the irons and
she cries,
" 'Keeps us all. I had forgiiten!' She
was the picture of woe.
" 'What's the matter, Chirsty?' I says.
"She stood there wringing her hands.
" 'Ye canna gang to the kirk,' she
moans, 'for ye have no clothes.'
" 'No clothes!' I cries. 'I have my
b'acks.'
" 'They're gone,' she says.
" 'Gone, ye limmer!' I says, 'wha has
them?'
" 'Davit Whamand.'.she says, 'has the
coat, and Hender Haggart the waistco t
and the hat.'
"Ay, lads, I can tell ye this composedly now, but I was fuming at the time.
Chiisty's passion for genteelity was such
that she had imi.ated grand folk's customs and given i.way the clothes as had
been worn by the corpse."
'' That came of taking a wife frae Balribbie."
"Ay, and It's not tho only proof of
Chirsty's vanity, for, as ye all ken, she
continued to wear her crape to the kirk
long after I came back "
"Becuuse she thocht It set her?"
"Ou, rather, just because she had it.
But it was aggrav ting to me to have to
walk with her to the kirk, und her in
widow's crapes. It would h;ive provoked
an ordinary man to the   drink."
"It would so, but what said ye when
ye heard the blacks was gone?"
"Said? It wasna time for saying. 1
shoved my feet into my boots and flung
on my bonnet, and hurries to the door.
" 'Whaur are ye going?' cries Chirsty.
" 'To demand back my blacks,' I snys,
dashing open the door with my fist. Ye
may mind there was some of yo keeking
in at the door and the window, trying to
hearken to the conversation."
"Ay, in d wj flew frue ye ns if ye was
the Riot Act. But we was thinkin by
that time as ye micht be a sort of living. '
"Mnyle, but I wasna thinking about;
you. Na, it was the blacks as was oi ny
mind, and away I goe ."
"Ye ran."
"Yes, I ran straight to the Tenements
to D.ivit Whamnnd s house. Luds, I said
the pot was very nj.tr the boil wh -n I
marched down the Rc.ods, but my humor
was getting cold again. Ay, Chirsty Todd
had suddenly lifted tie pat off the  nre."
CHAPTER VI.
"Davit's   collie   bi.rked  at me," Hng-
gart continued, "when it heard   mi lifting the sueck of the t'.oor, but I cow ■ I io i
wich a stem   look,   und   stepped   inside.
The wife was   awi-y   cracking  abou; me j
too   Lixzie   Linn,   but   there was D..vic j
himsel' with a btintum cock on his kn e,
the which was ailing, aud   he   was f iio- !
ing a   little butter into   its   nib.   He let
the ber.se fall when   he   saw   me,   and T
was angered to   notice   as   he   had b.en
occupied with a bantam when   he should
have been discussing me with consternation."
"It was the greater surprise to him
when in ye marched."
"Ay, but my desire to be thocht a
ghost had gone, nnd I says at once,
'Dinna stand trembling there, Davit
Wiiamand,' I snys, 'for I'm in the flesh,
und so you'll please hund ower my bluck
coat I' He hurdly believed I was human
at first, but at the mention of the coat he
grows stiff and hard, and says he, 'What
black coat?'
" 'Deception will not avail yc, Davit
Whamnnd,' suys 1, 'for Chirsty has confessed nil.' I
" 'The coat's mine,' snys Davit, glow-
•ring. j
" 'I want that coat direct,' I says.
" 'Think shame o' yoursel',' s»;ys he,
'and you a corpse this half year.'
"The crittur tried to speak like a minister, but I waved away his argil ment
with n,y   hHnd. ,

At the recent convention of the
Nortli American I'iah anel tJaine Fre>-
toctive Association at Ottawa, Colonel Turner, the United States Consul ut the capital, deduced that the
Dominion is the greatest country in
the world for game, This is a
.statement which may surprise iion-
spoiting cith.ens, but which, nevertheless, is quite true.
World's Kent Hunting Ground.
Americans come over here by thousands at different seasons of the year
for a few days' sport with gun and
rod. New Brunswick boasts thc most
aristocratic fishing clubs in the
woi Id, the membership fee of one pf
whicjh amounts to several thousand
dollars. Most of the lakes in all the
eastern provinces swarm with bass,
•aid to be the gaincst fish in the
world, with the exception of the salmon trout. Quail is found in the
Western peninsula, and partridge is
common in nearly every county in
the country. The ran_.o of the red
deer and the black bear is- equally
wide, while moose, thanks; to a long,
close season; ell* and cariboo are reported plentiful at the outposts of
civ iii uti.m. With Manitoba and the
Territories the home of the prairie

crane, with grixxly uud silver *ip,
mountain sheep, and tho grey wolf

The great game fuuiily lacks two
mcmbcis—the lordly bunalo and the
wild |.i_e_>n. 1'oiiy years ago the
buiialo roamed the Western praii ies
by the tei.s of thousands, while n*o
flights of blue rocks liierallj eu.iken-
ed the sun. To-c.uy there is not a
s|,C-iii.ci_ of eitiiC* in the country out-
sieie of a zoo—-except, as to buiialo,
the he,d at Bund. They have been
wiped from thc face of the earth. i\o
word but "cii *.e" can be u(.piled to
thc determination of the b. ..ulo by
while "sportsinen." At ti.e same
time, though nothing can compensate for their loss, the wholesale destruction of one groat species has
ser.ed as the most powerful argument for the preservation of others.
'J his is the precedent cited when a
elofce season is (c. ired for any bird
or l.e.*st. Son.e years ugo it was
found imperative to nioie ligoi'ously
prote.t the hocr in Canada. The
shooiing of moose was prohibited altogether for a time, and the open
season for cariboo, elk, and red deer
was limited to a very few days, 'lhe
desired end wus achieved and the
rieor increased in a most gratifying
manner.

Mr. Roger Jocosk's stories of the
Canadian West in the 'eighties, related in "A Frontiersman," nre of
ne^or-failing color and vivacity. In-
vnlided from the N.W.JI.P., he became a missionary to the Indians in
au inaccessible corner of Biitish Columbia. There was much to do, he
snys. The heathen lived healthily in
their well ventilated barns of hewn
cedar; but the righteous must needs
huve etuffy little houses, microbe
traps to cultivate the phthisis which
sent them up to heaven in a hurry.
They sacrificed much to dress like
missionaries, gave themselves aiis
antl graces among the heathen, and
were needlessly uplifted because successive white men had been sent
from the outer spaces to learn their
precious language. I flatly declined
to leam thut .wonderful dialect, because they had need of English, und
I had no occasion for (3actkshiu.ni
wore gum boots or deerskin huntinir-
dross in church to show that religion
did not consist of ugly garments,
und discouraged the endless loquiwity
of their prayers as tending only to
self-righteousness. It did them
good to be shocked, because a mission has no need to be a ranch for
raising prigs, und a Christ inn Indian
ought not to be distinguished from
his fellows for unctuous rus.'ality,
vanity and gloom.

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

form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of territory that remain unprospected
3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds-^—'
increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here. Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds o~ large and small game
abound. Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
4. Its Salubrious Clifnate_«^^
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit maybe grown, and

There is an enlightened aid now which takes bold of a man instantly.
Instead of dulling a drinker it gives hint almost initio diately liie fci.ap of
new; liie and power—lets the sunlight oi hope into hit ton I at once and
seta bit> mind into operation with ali its best intelligence — a prompt result of effects on tbe. neives, stomach and w'tole hotly which are quick
and marvelous. While at this point the cure has only begun, tbe encouragement is so great that piobably no medical woik equals ibis in
satisfaction to a patient.
W'itii tlii-' help against tbe drink habit any man who wants to lift from
his life tbe handicap of liquor using can do so wfib immediate results.
This guaranteed treatment is within reach of all. Convenient lertiH can
be arranged satisfactory to any one wbo is at all reasonable, though, as
all people, nndcrstand.it does rot compute with the woith'ess quacks
cuiea advertised at so much per package, or "Free", etc. It is a different
matter Irom all this to perfect a course of ti.orough. special, personal
treatment that will really do tbe work and cure forever. It is a .eiious
undertaking and rt quires a high form ol tcieuiinc professional w ik. All
the different knds ol cases are htndl* d under guaranteed r. suits. Only
•kill that ia developed to the higlu-st can doit. Only professional fees
can pay thr the time it requires, though they are made moderate slid co.i
venient for anybody. Tbe n ethods of practice used in this work has cost
years ol tlth", vast study and expensive expernients. Tbe originator, Dr,
William H. Saunders, had attracted wide noine i**i his wurktui Neivous
diseases long before petfecting this treatment. A i.l si ill nothing but care
and personal attention to caseB today makes it pus idle fo- liim to accomplish the absolute cures which he guarantees, So the reader will see
this treatment means thorough scientific, professional attenii-n. I'.ut it
-l-o means results that are absolutely certain. Tne splendid rir.t effects
on a man are alone worth tbe entire cost of treatment.
This treatment can be given WITH or WITHOUT the Inowledge of

~f Madame Albani Uye was a great
singir.  she i.s 8.ill  a gioat in.sic.Lm,
devoted    to    the    Uplifting und     ag-
, grand Lenient of her art. So tr"?   i.,
the i spiration of her artistic feeling
that  she  does  not  hesitate  to  bring
in her train  voices  which  are    ft eh
and full,  clear and true,  without one
thought    that tl ey  may    furnish   a
contrast   to   her     own—a     co: trasi
which would be avoided by a woman
of  less  great  fibre   than  the     prima
donna,  whose modest demeanor   hns
endeared  her to thousands of    Close
struggling in tho musical profession.
Theie is much  concerning thc    life
of Albani whicli hus never been published,  and  will  never  be    published,
which would prove of great interest
to Canadians.       Possibly  no    artist
has ever obtained such a world-wide
reputation  as    Albani   for     ipiulite;
which have inude her the pride of the
race from which she sprung. The fact
that she took the name    of Albany,
from which city in the United States
■ she received her first serious    aid   in
her subsequent cureer,  points to   the
fact that    gratitude  is one    of    her
many virtues.     This ought    to be a
leFSon  to  Canadians  to  keap a lookout for all possible means of helping
their  native-born  artists  in  the     future,  says The Toronto  tfews.      But
the one most charming aspect of Albania character   is the retention of
that modesty of demeanor which lie.-
conventual trui ling had so thoroughly  instilled.     One cannot  be    in  Iter
. presence for any time without recognising that,  great as  is  the   artist,
the strength pf hor  honest womanly
attributes is greater. She has curiied
unsullied, through all the    difficulties
of a long musical career and through
ill thc emotional  pitfal'a which surround the artist in grand opera,   the
•eputation of that excellent type    of
.French-Canadian woman  who is  up-
ight in every action of her   private
nnd public life,   without    a taint   of
irudory or purltanism, who hus i all
he    tact and   finesse    necessary    to
nake.hcr a welcome guest    in   social
atherings    in    every    part    of    the
vorld, nnd who yet carries under*her
.'oak of Spontaniety and gaiety   the
