In the annual report on the public
accounts of Canada for 11102, the
Deputy Minister, _Jr. J. 31. Courtney, oilers the following remarks:
"I find that this is tne twenty-fifth'
annual teport 1 have had the honor
to present as Deputy Minister of Finance. At the time of the publication of my first icport, the f.i* il.t.cs
for keeping in touch wilh ihe different parts of the Dominion were veiy
different from what they are to-duy.
At that time it was a matter of as
much dillicult,. to go from the eastern part of the Dominion to the
western part as it is to-day to go
from Ottawa to South Africa. The
provinces have I,em moulded into one
confederation, 'lhe Dominion of Canada has arrived ut a sluge of development that even the most sanguine Canadian of tho.c di,. s hardly
dreamed of, and there is e.cry likelihood that the progress of. the coming years Will l.e even gie tor.
"it has b_-_i iny pleasant d..ty and
privilege to have taken part during
the past quarter of a c■■•■■ tury in
solving many public finai.ci 1 problems, and lookirg bac- o>er the
perjod 1 feel it can be si id t ut, as
a whole, tbe dcpaitmctt Ins not
heen unsuccessful in i.s unf'ol'LU i gs.
"As the   busiiuss   of the
increa.e.l the worn of tie dc
increased  in like proj o   i n
idea  of  this  evolution  i:.. ,v

§2..i The total amount of Dominion
notes in circulation Ins increased
threefold. The deposits in tho savings banks, both Government aid
postotlke, have in:reused se infold.
Owing to the ievelo.nc.it cf tho
ban. ing facilities throughout the
country, in cmscqueii e of the opening of the bianclus of tho variot s
chartered banks, the nuinl er of deposit entries for revenue uc.i.ed has
very largeiy increased. The lotul absolute turnover tu cash of tie daily
transactions of the depart:! ent has
advai.cd from $85,086,!*'54 o:i Juno
30, 1879, to $'22!\ 091,827.04
on June 30,1902. All the work entered by this expansion has been
met without the slightest increase in
the cost of the department.
"With advancing age, that necessarily prevents me taking up new
financial problems, my oll'cial career
must soon close. The department
requires as its deputy head a younger and more active man, thoroughly
well versed in the vari.d features of
modern finance, who shall be able to
give to the head of the department
that advice and assistance which the
intricate and Important financial
questions of tho day demand.
Salaries of Officials.
"Perhaps, 1 might be pardoned if,
at the close of my career, when my
remarks cannot have any reference to
myself personally, 1 suggest for the
consideration of the Ministry whether, seeing the opportunities of betterment ~ tut are now presented!
throughout Canada to men of intelligence, good judgment and industry
by reason of the development of the
resources of the Dominion, the conditions of the public service are such
at present as to uttruct the best
men. Men of this class are needed
to undertake the increasing quantity
of high class work that the Dominion demands. The employment of
the best class of men for the best
class of work, at generous rates of
remuneration, is the truest economy
in the olid. Resignations from tho
service are    now  of frequent    occur
rence, and something will soon have
to be done to meet this new condition."

Scarcity of Canadian Timber. We
have heard it slated by several who
are interested in the trade, that the
scarcity of Canadian timber, especially for building purposes, is already beginning to be felt by a considerable increase in price. This is
atciibed to the circumstance of so
many vessels being dev&ted from the
stu| lo traffic of the Sifint Lawrence
in order to convey emigrants to Australia und thc States, and us the
weather may shut up the chance of
further supplies, for some time, it
is feared that those who have entered into large building contracts when
timber was at a low pi ice, will now
suffer loss and emburrasstnent by its
increased value in the market.— Liverpool Albion.—Irom The Globe of

Frnb.'t-m »f Immunity.
Prof. J. J. MclCenzie of the University of Toronto lectured at the Canadian Institute on Saturday night on
"Recent theories in regard to the
causes of immunity to infectious disease." He sketched tho history of
our knowledge of immunity and said
Fhrlich's observations have shown
that, the conditions which determine
tho death of a microbe introduced into the blood depend upon the presence of two substances, the first of
which is spci'ilic and acts only upon
tho specific microbe, the other of
whi h is common to the blood of
ttli) ;t animals. Th<} practical endeavor of bacteriologists has been not
only to increase the amount of specific substances which hns proved
f.iiily easy but also to increase the
amount of the non-specific substance
Which so far has proved difficult.
These observations have shown also
thnt the question of immunity is of
much broader bearing than thc mere
question of prevention or cure of infectious disease, because it is evident
from the results so far obtained that
it has a bearing upon the whole
question of the nutrition of the animal body.

nccepted in this ma ter hy people who
vould not pay h'm .«• a d 1 of potatoes
hvithout first s.,, , •, it to i...~kc sure of
[the length.
I have it from   Tiimmas  Haggart that
|until the extraordinary incident occurred
vh'eh I propose celling as he dropped it
llnto   ny mouth,    ho   was -uch   a man as
Imys.lf.    True,   he was occasionally per-
Isuadcd   by   persons   of   Lookaboutyou's
■ stamp to   gloss   ov.t  this admission, as
Jinc-edible on the face of il, but that was
I in his last years,   when   he.  hnd   become
[something of a shov., and was in a puzzle
aF'lt himself.    Of the several re. s u,s he
gave me   i?'   proof  of  a  npn-liuiqorons
period in   his   life  the   following  seem
I worthy of especial attention:—
First, that for <■ ,ne years after hi.
marriage he had never thought ot him oi
| as more nicely put together than oth-1
men. He could not say for certain
whether he had ever thoi, -ht of liii-ie '
at all, his loom taking up s i much o
his time.
Second, t it Christy Was able to aggravate him by saying that if which was
which she w .Iti hav* married Ja'H\,
Third, that   he  was   held   of little ac
count by the neighbors, who spoue of in
living  ' above   Lunan's     shoppy,"   but
never ltcalized the shop as   "below Hag-
gart's house."
Fourth, that while on his wanderings
he expei ienced certain novel and singular sensations in his inside, which were
probably liis humor trying to force a passage.
Fifth, that in the great scene which
ended his wanderings, his humor burs,
its banks like a dam, and had flowed in
burns ever since.
During nearly forty years we contrived
now and again to   harness   Tain mas   to
his story, but often lie would stop at the
difficulty of realizing the   man   ha must
have   been   iu   his   prc-humorous   days,
and remark, in his   sarcastic   way,   that
the one Haggart could   not   fathom   tho 'I
other.  Ihus our   questioning:, sometimes '
ended in silence, when   we all   looked in :
trouble at the lira and then   went home.
As for starting him on   the  story   when '
he was not in   the  vein,   liko   breasting
the brae against a high wind.
Wnen tl e events happened I was  only ;
ft lad.   1   cannot   send my mind back tc j
the time  when   1   could   pass   Haggart
without   lhe     side-glance     nearly     all !
Thrums  offered   to   his  reputation, and I
he is best pictured hunkering at Tillyloss, '
one of a row of his admirers. After eight
o'clock it was the pleasant custom of tho
weavers to sit in the open against a house
or dyke, tl eir knees near their chins and I
their ears   ready for Haggart.    Then   his
face would be contracted in pain as some
strange, idea bothered him and he searched '■
for its   humorous   aspect.    Perhaps  ten
minutes afterwards   liis   face   would expand, he would slap   his   knees, and we
knew that the struggle was over.   It was
one of his ways, disliked at the time, yet
admired on reflection, not to take us into
the   secret of his   laughter; bu'   he usually ended hy looking whimsically lu the
direction of  the   hu.ying-gi.mnd,   when
we were perfectly aware of the   source of
the joke,   and those   of   us nudged  each
other who were   not   scared.    Until   the
spell was broken we   might   sit  thus for
the space of a quarter  of an   hour, none
speaking, yet in the completest sympathy,
because   we   were   all   thinking   of  the
same thing, and that a gravestone.
Tillyloss is tiiree broken rows of houses
In the east end of Thrums, with gardens
between them, nearly every ono of which
used to contain a pig-sty. There are other
ways of getting into the gardens than
by windows, for those who are sharp at
knowing a gate when it looks like something else. Three or four other houses
stand in odd corners, blocking the narrow
road, which dodges through Tillyloss
like a hunted animal. (Starting from the

Tbe entrance to Lunan's shop was
brneaih Haggart's stair, which provided
a handy curing place in wet weather.
Lunan's personality had the enormous

more crab-
o-seers that
story of tiie
As boys we
envied, more than learning, the companion whose father kept a shop, aud I
remember Lunan's son going with his
list for the bankers sou who—though he
never leally believed It—said that hi3
father could have a shop if he liked.
Yes the grand romance of Haggart choked
the fame of Lunan even with the lads
who played dump at Tillvloss, and the
shop came to be localized as "beneath
Haggling stair." Even Lunan's stoutness, which war* a landmark in itself,
could not save him. 'Ji'ie passage between
liis counter and the wall was so narrow
and the rest of his shop so full of goods
that before customers could enter Lunan
had to come out, but in this quandary
his dignity never left him. He always*
declined to join the company who might
be listening on the stair to Tammas's
advenfcui -s, but some say he was not
above hearkening through a hole iu one
of the steps.
The exact date cf Haggart's departure
cannot be determined, though it was
certairj. in the back end of the year
1834. He had then been married to
Christy a little short of three years. His
age would be something beyond thirty,
but he never knew his birthday, ami 1
have heard him say that one of the few-
things he could not understand w„- how
the relatives of a person deceased could
know the precise ago to send to tho
What is, howVver, known for cert.dn
is that Tammas's adventures began within a week of the burial of old Mr. Yuill,
tlie parish minister. There had been a
to-do about who should preach the funeral sermon, two ministers having words
over it, and all Thrums knowing that
Mr. Yuill had left seven pounds to the
preacher. At this time Haggart did not
belong to the Auld Lichts, nor was he
even regular in his attendance at the
parish church, hut the dispute about
the funeral sermon interested him greatly, and when he heard that the session
was meeting to decide the affair, he
agreed with Chirsty that he might, do
worse than hang around the door on the
chance of getting early information.
There was a small crowd at the door on
the same errand, all of whom noticed,
though they little thought it, wonld give
them a tonic to their dying day, that
Haggart had on his topcoat. It had been
an old one of Mr. Y'uiU's, presented to
Tammas, who Could not lill it, but refused to have it altered, out of respect to I
the minister's memory. It has also been I
fondly recalled of Tammas that he was i
only shaven on the one side, as if Chirsty
sent him to the meeting in a hurry,
