Talking Ahout Canada.
I "When I first came to the Senate,"
laid Senator Cullom to those lunching at the same table in the Stnate
restaurant the other day, "I had
{treat ideas about a greater United
■Hates. My eyes Wero not turned
f'outhward, where everybody seyns to
[e 1 o'ing nowaduys, but north ward;
was lust as sure as sure that before
his time we should ha\e gobbled up
i'anada. I did not think that we were
.'rolng up there, and make a conquest
J if thc country, hut I could not. see
, ny chance of its getting away from
j s. .-hv, when I was ele.ted the
record time, and went out to Illinois
|to make my bow to the Legislature,
my lit' lo spec h was fillod with the
annexation of Canada. Since that
fiire. I have watched Canada sli|i-
ylig farther and farther away ftom
us, until now it takes a brave inan
even to suggest that some day the
'.tars and Stripes may float beyond
northern boundary. I have of-
Iton wonder, d if any of the members
|of that J e?Mature remember my
■speech. If they do, they, must think
|that I am a mighty bad prophet"
•*;Yes," sld Senator Burrows, who
Ihnd listened as befitted a man so
linnc'i Mr. Cullom's junior, "you
l.otild not pry Canada away from
JCIieat Britain now with a jimmy."—
Making at  Handmade  G«o«U Will Gnltl
.vate It la i anadntne.
In Canada, above all other coun-
tii s, we have gr.at need to ct.cour
a.e individuality, for our system ot
pui-lic education, howexo.' cxceile.it,
|'tales but little count of the individual, and from a certain slii.iiUi.-oi.u
we are educating on a system which
tends to destroy anything like s.roi g
in( i. iduality. ln fact, if you take
th-_ spit it which prevails iu our
s .iullv.'r towns and villet^oa you will
lind a positive rcBcntn.cnt ajruitisl
the man or woman who dares to
strike out in any line of his own. Co
into our large stores and you will
tind one huge table covuicd with tho
same form of hat, reproduced a thousand limes. Pass into the mantle do
part ment, and on great ttecs Iiuiih
Coot, and jackets of the exact cut
and make and color; and all this is
influencing our people and th-ir view
of individuality and its right to assert itself in any line in lie. With
all our boasted freedom, as compar-
•J to the past, we .fall into line 11 o
mild-eyed sheep and follow the mass
In the old days we inight have been
led by individuals; to-day it is the
unthinking crowd that takes tl o
leud. l'ow many people think or
care what has been the oil.in or
inspiration of any fashion we follow
So blindly? Surely there is nothing
so deadening, so calculated to still
the best that is in the human soul,
as inci.Tereiice. Can thc Society for
Arts and Crafts stir up tbe public to
take an intelligent interest in tht
thought and viitue which are ox-
pressed in the handmade artide, they
will bring closer to the mass of purchasers in the Dominion the problems
wlv."*h face the men and women who
design and execute the work they
propose to encourage. Those great
factories hide so much from tis that
is beautiful and worthy ir. human
lives and the struggles ot the workers to beautify their own rives by
contact with beautiful thin*ss. CiU.
we but encourage work which will
not separate men and women from
thiir homes and.their children, can
we but raise the taste of t e richer
-clnsses in the Dominion so thnt they
will take into consideration all thu'
a. good handmade article represents
and 1 e wi ling to pay for that ideal
(|uulity of human individuality, •*
Well as for the time and labor ex-
i ended on its cdnstftcMoii, we. shnl.

One of those wlro had been on the

remark that, in Canada all t.te Worn

be.e.'it of ensla\ing them. >Vorigins
reply was that the relation wus not

low-workeis; tha*. wiile the here

as wheat for the man. Hay was cut

A Tillyloss Scandal
Author of "The Little Minister,"  "Auld Licht Idylls,"
Window in Thrums," Etc., Etc.
"No, I didua. It was in Edinburgh,
vnd my lust nicht iu the place, and ul-.i
my last button, so I thinks to mysel' I'll
have one tremendous memorable nicht,
lind then I'll go hame. Lads, I was a
sort of wearying for Chirsty."
"Ay, but there's four shillings and
saxpence to account for yet."
"There is so. Saxpence of it goes for a
glass of whisky in the smoking-room.
]jiids, that smoking-room was a sight
utterly baffling imagination. There was
no chairs in it except great muekle sat.
ones, a hantle Salter than a chaff hed,
and in ilka chair some nobleman or
other with his feet up in the air. Ay, I a
sort of slipped the first time I tried a
chair, but I wasna to be beat, for thinks
I, 'Lords ye may be, but I have paid one
and sax for my bed as weel as you, and
this nicht I'll be a lord too!' Keeping
the one and sax before me made me bold,
and soon I was sprawling iu a chair
with my legs sticking ower the arm with
the best of them. Ay, it wasna so much
eujoyable as awe-inspiring."
" That just brings ye up to twa shillings."
"Weel, there was another one and sax
for breakfast."
"Oh, a haver, of course, but we got as
muekle as we liked, and 1 ns ye it's
amazing how much ye can e..t ■*■ .en ye
ken yo have CO pay for it nt f r..t.e.
Then there was ninepence for a 1     neon."
"What's thai?"
"I didna ken mysel' when L heard
them speakin? about it, but io turned
out to be a grand name for a rabbit.-
"Man, is there r..bbits in Edinburgh?"
"Xest there was threepence ol a present to the waiter-loon, and I finished up
with a shilling's worth of   sandwiches."
"Na, that's just five and saxpence."
Haggart, however, would m;i always
tell how the remaining sixpence went.
At first he admitted having squandered
it on the theater, but after he was landed
by Chirsty i i ihe km,. I.lohl kirk he
withdrew this reminiscence, and put
another sixpence-worth in the smoking
room in its place.
As a convincing proof of the size ot
Edinburgh, Haggart could tell us how
he lost his first lodgings in it. They
were next house to a shop which had a
great show of vegetables on a board at
the door, ani Haggart trusted to this
shop as a landmark. When he returned
to the street, however, there were greengrocery shops everywhere, and after asking ut a number of doors if it was here
he livd, he gave up the se.irch. This ex-
pcr"".nce hi.s been paralleled in later days
by a Tilliedrum minister, who went for
a holiday to London, and forgot thi
name of the hotel he was staying at; s >
he telegraphed to Tilliedrum to hi.s wife,
asking her to tell him what address he
had given here when he wrote, and she
telegraphed back to him to come homo
at once.
Like   all   the   great  towns    Haggan
visited, Edinburgh proved to be running
with low characters, with whom, as well
as with the flower of   the  place—for  he
was received everywhere—he  had   many
strange ..dventures.    His   affair with the
biiilie would make a long   story itself, if
told in full as   he   told   it; also what he
did to thc piper; how he climbed  up the
Castle rocks for a   wager; why   he   once
marched indignantly out of a   church  in
the middle of the singing;   the   circumstances in which he cut off his sixth button; ikis heroic defense of a lady who had
been attacked by  a   footpad; his  adventures with the   soldier   who   was in love
and had a silver snuffbox; his odd meeting with James Stewart, lawful king of
Great   Britain   and   Ireland.    With  this
personage, between whom and   a   throne
there only stood the constables,   Haggart
of Thrums   hobnobbed   on   equal terms.
The way they met was this. Haggart was
de.ilious of the sensation of driving in a
carriage, but grudged   much   outlay   on
an experience that would   soon   be over.
He   accordingly   opened   the   door   of a
street vehicle and   stepped   In, when the
driver was not looking.  They had a pleasant drive along famous Princes street and
would  probably have  gone   farther had
not Haggart become aware that someone
was hanging on behind.    In his indignation ho   allied the   driver's   attention  to
this, which led to his own eviction.   The
hanger-on proved to bo no other than the
hapless monarch,   with   whom   Haggart
subsequently broke a button.  For a king,
James Stewart, who disguised   his  royal
person ln   corduroys,    was,   as   Haggart
allowed, very ill in order.    The   spite  of
thc   authorities   had   crushed   that once
proud spirit, and darkened  his   intellect,
nnd   he   took his   friend to a   gambling
house, where he nodded to the proprietor.
"Whether they were in  company, with
designs on my   buttons,"   Hugg.irt   has
said,    I'm not In ft position to  suy,   but
I bear no ill-will to thein.    They treated
me most honorable.    Ay, the king, as we
may Will lilm if we speak in a low voice,
advises nie strong to gamble   a bttttOU at
ine go, for, says he. 'You're sure to win.'
Lads,   it's   no   for   me   to  say  a word
irainst liim.   but    '    tl lit   I   ■»'" ' '
wink to the proprietor lad, r.nd so I says i
in a loud voice, says I, "I'll gamble half*
a-erown first, and if 1 win, then I'll put
down a button.' The proprietor sort of
nods to the king at that, and I plunks
down my half-crown. Weel, lads I wor
five shillings in a clink."
"Ay, but they were just waiting for

Edinburgh was only a corner in Haggart's field of corn, and from it I have
not pulled half-a-dozen stalks. He was
in various other great centers of adventure, and even in wandering between
them he had experiences such as would
have been a loiui for any ordinary mans
back. Once he turned showman, when
the actors were paid in the pennies Hung
at them by admirers in the audience.
Haggart made for himself a long blood-
red nose which proved such an irresistible target for moneyed sportsmen that
the other players complained to the management. He sailed up canals swarming
with monsters of the deep. He proved
such an agreeable companion at farms
that sometimes he had to escape In the
night. He rescued a child from drowning
and cowed a tiger by   the   power  of th#
human eye, exactly as these things undone in a book which belonged to C hlrsty
He had eleven guineas with him when

Histo  iml Society- A  Valuable
Canadian (ollirlion.
There are few places in Canada as
full of the traditions of the past as
Niagara, and the Niagara Historical
Society is doing an impo.tant work
in collecting and preserving those of
a material character. It has chosen
the 17th of September us its anniversary, because on thut dav in the
yew 17*>i_ the lirst Parliament of
Upper Canada met at Niagara-on-the-
Lake. The settlement was at lirst
called West Niagara, then butlers-
burg, from thc leader of the Hangers,
whose name hns been preserved in
Butlers Barracks. Col. Simcoc, who
was made the first Governor, chansr-
ed the name again to Newark, nnd
that became the first capital of Upper Canada. In the short space of
seven yours the society has made one
of the best collections of historical
documents and articles in Ontario;
it has placed eight stone posts to
mark historic spots, and has printed
ten pamphlets, all bearing on the
early and vital history of Canada.
The credit for the work that has
been done to preserve from oblivion
these relics of the past is chiefly due
to the President, Miss Janet Carnochan.
There i.s much doubt as to where
the first sitting of Pailiament was
held, but the weight of testimony is
in favor of the old wooden building
still standing and known as Navy
Hall. Tho Parliament first met on
Sept. 17, 1792, and The Upper Canada Gazette published there says
that on June 4, 1793, Governor Sim-
coe held a levee at Navy Hall And so
the probability is that Navy Hall
was the meeting place. It is certain
lhat many of the official documents
of the early part of the yer r were
dated from the hall. Tho building
is slill standing, though in a sadlv
d; lapidated condition. Tho worst
wrench was given bv a farm >r who
us'.ed the hall as a stable. Throuirh
the efforts of the society the atten- i
tion of the Government was called
to this, and the farmer was ordered
to vacate, but in doing so he tore
down a portion of one wall in order
to carry out his cattle stalls. If this
is really the fist seat ol constitutional Government in Upper Canada, more than the antiquarian will
approve <>f Is rescue from destruction.
The slone markers which have been
placed aie: (1) Tht- site of the first
burial of Sir Isaac Brock, Fort
George. 1 Ml I?-1824; (2) site of military council and Indian council
l.ousc: (3) silo ol Gleaner printing
office, I.S 17, and of Masonic Hall.
1792: (4) site of Government. House,
burned in 1812: (5) spot of burial
of bodies of three soldiers who fell in
battle, May 27, 1<St3; (6) residence
af Count, do Puis aye, built in 1798;
.7) site of Niwy Hall and first Parliament House; (8) Court House of
Counties of Lincoln, Wclland and
Haldira-and, 1847.
Among Iho pamphlets which the
society has issued are: (1) Taking of
Fort George by Col. Cruikshank,
edition o_~t.u_~.tr-d' (2) slave rescue.
Fort Niagara. cento_ii..al poem; (3)
blockade of Fort Griorge, Col. Cruik-
shank; (1) Memorial t<i U.E. Loyalists, battle of Ciueenston Heights; (5)
historic hous.-.s; (6) Niagara library.
1800-1820, early schools, by Janet
Carnochan; (7) historic buildings;
(8) family history, by Wm. Kirby
The collection  of the society, numbering over 1,600 articles, is now in
a small  room  ou the second floor of
the old    Court,  House.      It     includes
books nnd papers printed in   Niwaaia
or    relating  thereto,   starting     with
The Upper Canada Gazette of    Julv
3, 1791, a large number of portraits,
pictures,   maps   and   drawings    Which
have  proved  of  groat  assistance     in
settling disputed points of historical
interest,   military   clothing,   weapons,
household  utensils,  Indian  und other
relics.    Cno    result   of  tho     energetic
president's    researches    hus bein    to
: show    that  St.   Mark's   Church     was
I built   in   .1801,   and  not   in   1792,   as
; stated on the brass tablet set in the
1 wall.
Notwithstanding the inconvenience
of location, the collection has hem
inspo-tcd every year by thousands,
and forms a valuable addition to tho
historic memories of the place. 'Iho
space, however, is altogether too
limited to permit of proper exhibition and arrangement, and there is
always the danger of fire.
Recently the following were appointed a committee lo devise steps
for obtaining a suitable building for

Lord Coleridge, Lord Chief Jtisti
of England front 18180 until U_*~*-i.
has been described us England's
givatest criniinul rjudge, A writer in
the Pall Mall Magazine says that in
appearance he has the veiy embodiment oi judicial dignity. lie was
ever courteous and considerate, and
never tried to win cheap applause at
the expense of an inexperienced barrister or overwrought witness.
lie had a curious habit, on tlio
bench, of leaning back in his chair
nnd closing his eyes, and this sometimes led the unwary to conclude
that he was asleep.
On one occasion, during the trial
of a prisoner for setting lire to a
dwelling-house, the counsel for tho
defence was much upset through his
ignorance of thc chief's habit.
Throughout the day he had been trying to get before the jury the fact
that a man other than the prisoner
had openly threatened to burn down
the particular house.
Each attempt to introduce testimony which the rules of evidence
would not admit, was checked by a
prompt objection, sustained by the
court. But when the speech for the
defence was begun Lord Coleridce
went off into his usual dee, and thc
counsel saw his opportunity.
"Gentlemen of the jury," said he,
"let me come to another and more
• serious point. Vie have heard from
the witnesses that a certain Bill
,Smith had, prior to the lire, been
dismissed by the prosecutor from his
service. Now, gentlemen, I can tell
you something—"
"Dut not about Mr. William Smith,
I'm afraid," came from the bench,
in gentle tones which conveyed no
sense of irritation or annoyance.
Death  lioll of tho PUffUC.
Over a million and a half people
in India have died of plague since the
disease first made its appearance in
Bombay in 18-5. In 18..6 there
were 1,700 deaths. The Mortality
increased to 56,000 in IS!)", to .118,-
OUt) in 181)3, and to 135,000 in IS'. *>.
The following year there was a big
drop the number of deaths going
down to 93,000, but the hope tnat
the. end was in sight was quickly
dashed to the ground, the year I'.Ol
see ng no less than 274,000 deaths,
while the total rose in 1002 to the
terrific figure of 5,7,000. Since iVen
matters have grown even worse, \he
f.rst three months of the current >ear
adding roughly another 800.000 to
the list of those who have perished
from the disease.

At the Canadian Institute rooms in
Toronto on a recent S-al'urday l.i.^bt,
an addre-s was read by It. A. .Stu-
par-fc, l'\K.S.C, on astronomical matters. Mr. Stupart said the wotld
was awaking to the importance of so-
le.r physi.s, meteorology, scismo-
giaphy ».,d terrestrial magnetism.
Much good wor.i had been done by
the Toronto Observatory, and he
was glad to say that Canadians generally were beginning to appreciate
The lecturer traced briefly the lise
and growth of meteorological and
niagnty^ science, and staled that the
Bii.iS* Assoc...♦ion in 1834 ordered
a magnetic survey to be made of the
pi i.i -ipal lands of the two hemis-
jlieics. In 1837 a report was publish.d, and in 1838 an expedition,
partly subsidized b.v Queen Victoria,
was organized under Sir John Ross
and sailed for the Antarctic mi a
voyage of discovery and magnetic Investigation.
Canada and Van Piemen's Land
were selected as being nearest the
magne.i'. poles, and St. Helena, because it wns in the sphere of 1 » si
magnetic disturbance, and in these
three places observatories were or-
dore l to be ctccled.
Toronto was chosen ns the most
suitable point, in Canada, and King's
College granted a site. In September, 1810. the lirst magnets weir
suspended iu a wooden structure, and
f.om then until IH.'_> constant ami
careful observations of diurnal
changei in magnetic declination and
dip were made, but in 1802 the magnets were ruined, as wero those of
other observatories in l'otsdam,
Greenwich, Kow and Washington by
t.he advent of the troll-y car. the electro-magnetic force utilized !><* g so

Novel Ways of IIiivIiik Stock.
The latest way of selling stock is
by measuring with dollar bills. The
other day a cow was sold in this
manner and the price determined by
measuring around thc animal's body
b.v $1 bills. it only roquired 11
bills to encircle the cow, and now
tht re is one mun in East Flamboro
who will never sell that way again.
Another game is to offer to buy a
hoise lor the amount of money required to measure it from the tip of
the nose to the end of the tail, but
instead of measuring up over the
bead and along the back, the horses
tail i.s drawn forward between his
bind legs and his head backward
between his forelegs, und it is found
that the distuncc between the noce
and the tail can sometimes be covered by one bill.
