In Canada, above all other coun-
tri.s, we havo gtvat need to encour-
a e individuality, for our system of
public education, howe\e.- excellent,
takes but little count of the individual, and from a certain standpoint
wo are educating on a system which
tends to destroy anything like strong
individuality. In fact, if you take
tha Spirit which prevails in our
s.nailer towns and villages you will
lind a positive resentment against
the man or woman who dares to
strike out in any line of his own. Go
into our large stores and you will
lind one huge table covered with tho
same form of hat, reproduced a thousand times. Pass into the mantle department, and on great tices hang
cor.ts and jackets of the exact cut
and make and color; and all this is
influencing our people and their view
of individuality and its right to assert itself in any line in lifo. With
all our boasted freedom, as compared to the past, we fall into line li o
mild-eyed sheep antl follow the'ma.'s.
In the old days we might have been
led by individuals; to-day it i.s tho
unthinking crowd that takes tlo
lead. 1 ow many people think oV
care what has been the oii.ia or
inspi ali.jlt of any fashion we follow
so bli.-dly? Sutely there is nothing
so de.tdening, so calculated to still
the l.e-t that is in the human soul,
as lhc i.Verence. Cnn the Society for
Arts and Crafts stir up thc public to
take an intelligent interest in tho
thought and viitue which ure expressed in thc handmade at'titlo, they
will hi ing closer to the muss of purchasers in thc Dominion the problems
whi h face the men and women who
design and execute the work they
propose to encourage. Thoso great
factoi ies hide so much from us that
is beautiful and worthy in human
lives and the struggles ot the workers to beautify their own J.yes by
contact with beautiful things. Can
wc but encourage work which will
not separate men and women from
th ir homes and their children, can
we but raise the taste of t e i ichor
classes in the Dominion so that they
will take into consideration all that
a good handmade article represents
and le wi liag to pay for that ideal
quality of human individuality as
well as for the time and labor cx-
I ended on its construction, we. shall
have much to thank the Society of
Arls and Crafts In Canada for. —

Among the great ground landlords
In London the Crown is one of the
gicatest. owning prope ties iu various pa ts of the Capitol yielding iu
ground rents 41460,000 I>cr annum.
Fifteen years ago the estates puidrc-
ed £250,000 only, but many leases
have fallen in within that time, and
the inci-eascd rent, have been exacted for renewal linos or for new leases. Tho Carlton Hotel is a striking
instance of the increased value of
ground in London. Formerly t'-e
site on width the hotel stands was
held for the Crown for a ground rent
of 4~7t5.'l per annum, now £4,200

apparently insignilicant in itself,
but, viewed in the light .of Groat

of invs.ioi.si le alarmists, it appears to be almost a menace to the
existence ()f the Empire, i is Majesty's repusoa'-ativo at Constantinople
has protested to tl.e Lotto, who is
tl.e gttaidi ,n of the l^lack bea, and
though no answer has been returned,
any possible ox| la.n~.tion has been already anticipated and discounted,
'ihe action of the Russians was an
open violation of the Healy of Paris. ■ England as.siuues her attitude of
vi tuous indignation, and Kus&ia
quietly pursues her policy.
iSnUsbur  '.i Fiiiiiiius ' .a if.
When England and France undertook to uphold the lott.iiog Turkish
Enii ire, and threw themselves upon
llissij. in the t.riinean War, the former country, as Lord SalisiUiy has
since sai.l, "put its money en the
wrong hoise." However, the "wrong
horse" was hist under the wi e.
When the war was about at an end,
Lord Lyndhuist vigorously decL.rtd
that "there could be no place wilhout first destroying Russia's 1 lack
Sea fleet, and laving prostrate the
foiti.lrations which pr.ottcted it."
Therefore ti.e great docks and
defences of Scbastopol, designed in
1830 by an English engineer, were
demolished, and the Treaty of Paris
Whi h .con-hided the conflict expressly
provided that the fqr.tre.s should not,
le rebuilt and that the Clack Sea
Should be free from the warships of
cve.y power. Tho key to thc Black
Se.i is the Dardanelles, swinging os-
tentatioutly at the Sultan's guide.
Russia's eye hos ever Leen upon it.
. ir»t Violation ol Treaty.
Princo Gortehakoff, whose ambition
it was to be the l.i. umrck of Russia,
s.iw lis opportunity in 1870 when
I'tante and Germany weie at war.
He LsuCil a curt nolilicution of the
Czar S intention to abrogate that
clause of the 'treaty of Paris which
forbade the rebuilding of Sebastopol.
France was in no position to object;
England could not but liie a formal
proUst. Thus Sebastopol is stronger than ever before.
Au ..IIi'hihi llieuck of Kalth.
By the treaty of Bet Hit in 1878,
which made peace between Russia
and   Turkey  after their second  con-
1 ice, all thf powers were rewarded
for their kindly forbearance. It was
then that Britain got Cyprus, while
the Bit-'.. Sea was made formally
what it already was geographically,
a Russian lake. No restrictions wero
removed, however, from the passage
of tho Dardanelles. These straits
were to remain inviolate: The
C.ar's land frontier was extended to
embiace ICars, a port of|Batou~n, It
was stipulated that Batoiim should
remain unfortified, but Russia soon
found occasion to disregard that provision. This violation formed tho
text for other charges of bad faith;
but it is sai'l now that, there was a
secret under itanding among the powers at the time of the treaty that
Batoum might he protected.
Kin-tin Not Conquered.
In 1870 one clause of the Treaty
of Paris was abrogated: in 1908 another. On both occasions Russia has
been accused of faithlessness, If she
could le frank with her accuseisshe
would say that an individual or a
nation is not morally hound by uny
promise whi.h may be extorted by
armed forces.    The vital point to he
rememleied is "that Ru:* ia vvas h_"C~
a conquered nation at tho end of tlie
t'l i c n Wnr. ' h • pec'td 1 a iiii-
miliating peace, it. is tri.e, but since
then she has tome to know her
strength. She wanted to rebuild Scbastopol as a fortress. She did so,
I ecause she was strong enough, 'ihe
wanted her two unarmed t-t'iot'o-

The ruinous loi-^i'd  Wil..
When Napoleon prepared to inade
Russia he caused a vvill of t'eterthe
Great to be for~o:l by M. Ltsur. This
fabrication was designed to thoroughly tor.ify Europe as to Rus ia's
i.itent iot.s, and to via inttrnatioi al
sympathy for the Gersiccn's great
venture. The documc.it is _e.rvi.ig

the dictator of Europe. No mesion
should be lost, therefore, to pi o • ' e

■Rudyard Kipling, it appears, is
fond of apple pie baked on the American system. To gratify his taste a
glass rolling pin apctially used in
the manufactuie of these pies has
just been forwauled to tho notollst
from Wanamakcr a. Tho glass loll
ing pin has among o her advantages the me it of always being
sweet and clean, and of being hollow
so that it can be filled with ice to
cool tho pie trust. "When Mrs. Kipling, who is tin American, was in

lv admired this contrivance, i n.l
knowing that her husband tti.il children were fond of American pies, da-
tided to get them tho next best

Itave taken the wanderer to Tillyloss
vithout zigzagging him through the rest

own, and came marching down the
"I wanted to burst upon the place sud-
len like," he admitted, "ami to let
sverybody see me. I dinna deny but what
t was a proud moment, lads, as Thrums
!ame in sicht. I hud naturally a sort of
tontompt for the placey, and yet I was
tell awld to be back in it too, just as a
_ody is glad to slip into his bed at nicht.
[Ay. foreign parts is grand for adventure,
Ibut Thrums for eompany."
A. the top of the Hoods ho was recognized by two hoys who had been to a
farm for milk, i:nd were pluylug 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 subsequatly high words with
Tammas, who refused to refund the prico
of the milk.
"Though my expectations was high,"
Haggart said, "they were completely
beuten by the reality. Nothing couli
havo been more gratilying than the sen-
Ration I created, not only among laddies
and lassies but among grown men and
women. Very weel I ken that Dan'l
Straehen pretends he stood his ground
! when I came upon him at the mouth of
[ Suuners line's close, but whaur vvas the
honor in that, when tVe crittur was paralyzed with fear? Ay, he wasna the only
man that lost his legs in the Hoods that
day; Will'um Crewe being another.
Snecky Hobart, you was one of them os
1 walked into at Peter Lambie's shop
door, and I'll never speak to ye again if
yo dinna allow ns I scattered ye like a
showman in the square does when he
passes round the hut."
"I allow, Tammas, as 1 made my feet
my   friend that nicht."
"And did 1 no send the  women flying
nnd skirling in al' directions?   Was it me i
or was it no me that made   Mysy lMnnio
faint on her back in   tho   corner   of the
"It was you, Tammas, and michty
boastful the crittur vvas when she came
to, and heard she h;»d fainted."
"And there's a curran women as says
they hung out at their windows looking
at me. I would like to hear of one proved
case in which ony woman did that except
nt 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 her 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 bo wondered at that we
should be terrified, seeing we had buried
ye live months before."
"I'm no say lug it was unnatural. I
would have beeu 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 nsser; Ion 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 Tone- i
ments tho town hod sufficiently recovered i
to   follow him   nt h distance.     How  he
looked to the populace has been frequently discussed, Peter Lambie's  description
being regarded as the best. j
"Them   of   you,"   Peter  would   say, j
drawn to the door of   his shop   by Haggart groups, "as has been   to   tho  Glen '
Quharlty   Hieland   sports,   can   call   to .
mind   the   competition  for  best-dressed
Hielander.    The   Hlelanders    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 us they're   indifferent to   whether
they get the prize or no, hut all the time,
there's a sort of   pleased smirk  on   their
faces, mixed up with a natural   anxiety.
Ay, then, that's   thc look Tammas Haggart had when he passed my shop."
"But ye saw a change come ower him,
did ye no?"
"1 did. I was among them ns ran nfter
hint along the Tenements, and, though I
just saw his back, it wasna the back he

I say, judging from his back, as his  chest

"Na, It was astonishing how he could
hare kept frae turning your head. Ye
was like one unaware that there was sieh
a crowd running itfter 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 ye,*r.' ''
"And it will not, Tammas. It did the
work of the town for a nine days. Ay,

Vie _o back to the march from the
Roods to Tillyloss. In less timo than it
would have taken Haggart to bring his
■sarcastic shaft from the depths where l.e
stowed these things and fire it into Lookaboutyou, he had walked triumphantly to
Tillyloss, and turned up the road that
was presently to bo named after hlhi.
His tail of fellow-townsmen cante to a
stop at tho pump, whero they had a good
view of Huggart's house, all but it few
daring ones, nearly all women, who ran
up the dyke, in hope of witnessing the
meeting with Chirsty.
"I suppose, lads," Haggart said to us,
"that ye're thinking my arrival at Tillyloss was the crowning moment of my

shows how little ye ken about the human

It wasna the view 1 was thinking abaut.

At this question Hagga-t's listeners
usually looked different ways.
"Lads," continued Tammas, "it ran
through me suddenly, like a cold blast of
wind—'What if Chirsty shouldna be glad
to see me back?' and I regretted michty
that I hadna halved the guineas with
her. Ay, I tell ye openly, as I found
mysel' getting smaller, like a gas-ball
with a hole in it, and I a kind of lost

Lillooet District
Attracting Attention
on account of
i. Its Fraser River Placers.
As far back as tlie year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near tbe town ot Lillooet. Tbe adjoining ground is being worked witli profit at
tbe present time,
A conipany is now working a gold dredger on tbe Fraser, with gratifying success, and
ti new company bas been formed with a capital of $350,000, to operate an improved.
dredge near tbe town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.-^
an di. use n lake and liii'.dc. is nt v lint mining properties \yill prove themselves sufficient to
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 tbe sportsman's
Paradise is lure. Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound. Anglers find tbe lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
4. Its Salubrious Climate.<^^>
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
at the present time,November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in the gardens of the town

Holies of old Newgate Prison were
fiold at auction on the afternoon of
tne 5th Feb., and hardly fetched th_
value of .crap iron. "There was a
large crowd of spectators present,
including u number 01 Ameticans,
but the bidding wus yeiy slaci.
There was __me competition for the
old oalv, the hangman s key and the
cupboard mentioned in "llarnaby

The old. death bell fetched §500.
The staf on whi It the bhek Hag was
hoisted went for §60; copper washbowls us-d b.v tho prisoners wer«
sold for §5 each, nine plaster heads
of persons executed we e knoc. ed

Gordon  rioters,   brought §150.
Newgate Prison, with the histoilc
.essions house, known as the Old
Bailey, in the heart, of the city of
London, which may be compared
with the Bastile of Paris, or the j
Tombs of New York, will have soon
completely vanished, to male room
for the new Central  Criminal Court.
The old jail was massively built,
of stone, and immensely str.ong,
though not impregnable, as many
irisor-eifi managed to effect their escape from its gloomy into'ior. It
dated only from 1770, and was much
damaged in the London "No Pop-
cry" riots, ten years later, whi h
make the most picturesque episode
in Pickens' ''Butnaby Kudge." The
tloters then battered in the door and
reiaased the pi i oners. Ioid George
Gordon, the fanatic ringleader, was
himself confined in the building on
its reconstruction.

Two members of Parliament have
quaint stories to tell of adventures in
Venezuela in times past.
An honorable baronet, while on a
visit to the Republic, had interviews
with certain members of the Government. Le dined with them in the evening, and retiied at a late hour, lie
was awakened from his sleep by a
noise in his room, and saw, as he
thought, one of his hosts disappear
through the bedroom window leading
to  the verandah.
Concluding that this was a polite
custom in the country, the visitor returned to sleep, but in the morning
he found his trousers upon the lloor,
their peckets tinted inside out. His
old-fashioned, highly decorated chain
purse was gone, but its contents wero
on the ground. His gold-edged cigar
case and some geld charms attached
to his fob had _ls„ vanished.
The Englishman went, straight to
the sent of Government, and coin-
|1 lined to one of the Mini-iters, who
expressed his dismay, and was thereupon informed that tho person scon
In the room bore a resemblance to
"Very strange," replied tho Minister, ' for there is no one alive who
resembles mo."
"In that, case," rejoined his visitor, drily, "you should have no difficulty in securing the restoration of
iny property."
Later in the day the Englishman
discovered an anonymous packuge
upon 1 is room table.. Opening the
cover he found all the missing articles save tho gold-edged cigar case
and one of the charms—a little god
dess in diamonds and emeralds.

Mr. Henry Labouchero went
through a revolution in Venezuela
son.e years ago.
"A battle took place on the Plaza
one afternoon," snid Mr. Labouchore
in telling his story, ''and I watched
it from a grass hammock on the terrace in front of my hotel. The Government fore s were put to flight,
