The pass.ipfe    through thc Duid.iii

Lipparcntly     insigniticant    in    itself,

though no answer has been returned,
uiy possible explanation has been already    anticipated    and discounted.
Jl'hc action of the Russians was    an
■open violation of the Treaty of Par-

il.tuous   indignation,     and    Huasia

BalUbnr..'■ Famoun Mang.
When England and. France under-
Itook to uphold the totteiing Turkish
U-uipire, and threw themselves   upon
Jtussia in the Crimean War, the for-
liner country, as Lord Salisbury has
■since said, "put its money on the
Jwrong horse."   However, the "wrong
horse" waa first under the wiic.
|When the war was about at an end,
Lord Lyndfiiirst vigorously declared
Ithnt "there could be no place with-
lout first destroying Russia's Black
KSea fleet, and laying prostrate the
[foitifications which protected it."
I'Jherefore    the    great    docks      and
defences of Sebastopol, designed    in
1830 hy an English engineer, were
^demolished, and the Treaty of Paris
_Whi__i concluded the conflict expressly
provided that the fortress should nob
rebuilt and that thc Black Sea
Ts'iould be free from the warships of
[every power. The key to the Black
'."-'ed is the Dardanelles, swinging ostentatiously at the Sultan's guide.
| Russia's eye has ever been upon i*-
tint Violation or Treaty.
Prince Gortchakofl, whose ambition
lit was to be the Birsnarck of Rustia,
l~-~.w his opportunity in 1870 when
] France and Germany were at war.
I He issued a curt notification of the
' Czar's intention to abrogate. that
lause of the Treaty of Paris which
Lforbade the rebuilding of Sebastopol.
rFrance was in no position to object;
[England could not but file a formal
Jprottst. Thus Sevastopol is strong-
fer than ever before.

By   the   treaty of   Berlin in 1878,
[which   made   peace   between   Kussia
land   Turkey after their second conflict,    all the powers were rewarded
I for their kindly forbearance. It whs
iithcn that Britain got Cyprus,  while
'the Black    Sea was made formally
[what it already waa geographically,
la Russian lake     No .restrict ions were
[removed, however, from the passage
of the  Dardanelles.      These    straits
were    to     remain    inviolate.       Tba
'Czar's land frontier was extended t>»
► embrace Kars, a port of |Batoum.  It
"' wet* stipulated that Batoum shou.il
remain unfortified, but Russia    soon
found fccrasion to disregard that provision.    This violation formed     the
text for other charges of bad faith;
but it is said now that there was a
secret understanding among the powers at the time of thc treaty     that
Batoum might be protected.

Dean Farrar, who was at one time
head master of Marlborough College,
had what one ol his boys, who writes of him in Cornhill, calls "thc
great maimer." Therefore, he was
admired and reverenced, and sometimes gently smiled at. Often,
in his teaching, his mind
wandered to other things while
ho mechanically. repeated . the
statement \Vhieh the lesson demanded. It happencji, too, that he sometimes forgot how often he had said
a thing important enough to be uttered more than once. The boys
noticed this, and were sometimes
tempted to play upon his unsuspicious 'nature; but whenever any of
them led him into the trap, they
were always speedily sorry (or it.
During one term there wore weekly
lessons in thc Septuagint, where the
Greek words for "word" and "work"
&rs interchanged, llcgularly every
Monday morning the dean would explain- this confusion in the words'.
"The reason why ergon is used here
instead of logos is that it is a
translation- of the Hebrew word da-
bar, which means both 'word' and
'thing.' "
The last monosyllables would come
rolling out, in the grand manner,
like thc boom of a great boll
One morning a light-minded boy
Whispered to another, "Wc have not
had dabar yet.   Shall I get it?"
"Do, if you dare."-
"If you please, sir," said the mischievous one, "why is ergon used
instead of logos, in the passage just
"Ah," replied the master, "you
could not be expected to know (hnt.
The reason is—" and forth rolled thc
usual explanation.
To see thc dean walk with stately
tread into the open trap was not too
small a joke to please a schoolboy.
There was a moment of suppressed
delight, but succeeding that a remorseful silence; and after the session the boy-joker was begged by his
fellows never to repeat the jest.
No schoolmaster was ever more
sensitive to poor results than was
this one. . At a certain history lesson, when a boy bad failed to answer some trifling question, thc
master flung down his book and exclaimed, "My dear boys! I am profoundly discouraged. For fifteen
years of my life 1 have been letting
down a bucket into an empty well,
and drawing it up' again. For fifteen years of my life I havo been
pouring out water' upon the arid
sand." Then he gathered up his
books and fled.
A few boys laughed. The others
cried, "Shame! shame!" on those
who did it. And the next lesson
was splendidly prepared,

Cape Horn has always been thc
terror of sailors. Mr. Basil Lubbock, who went round the horn in a
"wind-jammer" and put his experiences into a book, tells how it leelt*
to be knocked about in the cape
seas. During thc gale of which he
writes the docks weie full of water,

Continuing,  Mr. Lubbock s.u>s:
"I was about fifth on the rope

We had hardiy la-.en two puilb i.t

Tlie building in We'-t Kensington,
which is to E_r\e iis the new Home
of Thrift, is colossal. Three of its
many rooms haCe ca h a leiiRth of
no less than 850 feet. it hus hetn
erected on a sitcv known as the
olyinpia annox. The front, whi h
fates Blvthe road, is in the Renaissance st.v'e. and built of Portland
stone and n<| brick. In the cent e,
which is almost wholly of stone, is
the main entrnn e, in the form of
three ar-hos, leading into Ihe quadrangle beyond. On either side of the
arches is a bay surmounted by a
dome-lopped tower, and between
these towels is a spare for a dock.
The centre, with its towers antl with
its facade decorated with a considerable amount of carved work, mal e:-i
the main f.-attire of the building,
from an ai chitcltiial point of view,
and breaks what would otherwise be
a monotonous array of windows in
so extended a front. In form, lhe
building is a hollow square, with
the north and south bloc' s continued on both sides beyond the cast
and west blocks, the pro.'e'ting ends
s iggesttng that the present structure, huge though it be, is only a
portion of the complete design, to be

Canada's Finances   Receipts Keach Theli
Highest  Klsui-e-Kxpaiision   in 25
Veins -Deposits l.iow Finely.
In thc annual report on the public
accounts of Canada for 11*02, thc
Deputy Minister, Mr. J. M. Courtney, offer., the following remarks:
"I find that this is the twenty-lifth
annual report 1 nave had the honor
to present as Deputy Minister of Finance. At the time of the publication of my first teport, the faiil.t.es
for keeping in touch with the different parts of the Dominion were very
different from what they aie to-day.
At that lime it was a matter of as
much difficulty to go f.om the eastern part of tlie Dominion to the
.western part as it is to-day to go
fiom Ottawa to South Afiica. The
province, have Lee;; moulded into one
confederation. The Dominion of Canada has arrived ut a stage of development that even the most sanguine Canadian of tho.e da>s hardly
dreamed of, and there is every likelihood that the progress of thc coming years will te even greater.
"It has bee-n my pleasant duty and
privilege to have taken part during
the past quarter of a cei tury in
solving many public financial problems, and looking back over the
perjod 1 feel it can he said that, as
a whole, the dopaitment his not
been unsuccessful in i;s undertakings.
The luiin.i-.'s  l-.xiuiiis..>n.
"As the business of tho count: y
increased the worK of the department
increased in like proportion. Some
idea of this evolution may be inferred from the statement that on my
entry upon the duties of the office of
Deputy Minister the amount of Dominion notes in circulation of all
kinds, huge and small, was less thun
the circulation to-day of the notes
of small denominations only (SI and
-■-•. The total amount of Dominion
notes in circulation has increased
threefold. The deposits in the savings bunks, both Government and
postoffice, have Increased sevenfold.
Owing to the development of tho
banking facilities throughout the
country, in consequence of the opening of the branches of the various
chartered banks, the numl er of do-
posit entries for revenue received has
very largely increased. The total absolute turnover in cash of the daily
transactions of tho department has
advanced from $85,086,954 on Juno
ao, 1879, to ¥228,091,827.04
on June 30,1902. All ihe work entailed 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 official 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 (he department
that advice and assistance which the
intricate nnd important financial
questions of the day demand.

iy, lads, just list, n, an*. )
it came about as the gate
tyever to close again."
'Ye  had   the   stuff   in "ye, though,"
Lookaboutyou would say, "and therefore,
.'m ot opinion that  ye've been a humor
list frae the  cradle."
"Little you   ken  about  It,"   Haggart
I would   answer.    "No  doubt   I   had the
I material   < f   humor  ln   me, but It was
Lraw.   I'm thinking cold water and   kail
»nd carrots and a   penny   bone  are  the
materials broth Is made of?"
"They arc, they are."
"Ay, but it's no broth till it boils?"
"So It's no. Ye're richt, Tammas."
"Weel, then, It's the same with humor.
^Considering me as a humorist,   ye micht
[say that when my   travel-!   began   I had
put mysel' on the fire to boil."
Not having a Haggart head on my
lihoulders I dare not attempt to iollow
[the explorer step by step during his
fwanderings of the next live months. In
that time he journeyed through at least
[ono country, unconsciously absorbing
rivprything that his conjurer's wan.l
Lcould turn to humor when the knack
leame to him. This admission he has
'himself signed in conversation.
''Ay/' he said, "I was like a blind
P beggar in these days, and the dog that
^led me ty a string was my impulses."
Most of us let this pass, with the re-
, flection that Haggart could not have . al.i
' it In his pre-humorous days, but Snecky
i Hobart put In his word.
1 Ye were hardly like the blind beg-
Igar," he said, "for ye didna carry a
'tanker for folk to put bawbees In."
Snecky  explained  afterwards  that he
' only spoke to give Haggart an opportun
.ity.   It was, indeed, the way of all of us,
rwhen we saw an opening, to coax   Tarn-
was into it.   So   sportsmen   of another
kind can point   out   the  hare   to   their
dogs, and conAdently await results.
"Ye're wrong, Sneoky," replied Haggart.
As ever, before shooting his bolt, he
then paused. His mouth was open, and
he had the appearance of a man hearken
Ing intensely for some communication
from below. There were those who went
the length of hinting that on these occasions something inside jumped to his
mouth and told him what to say.
"Yes, Snecky," he said at last, "ye're
wrang. My mouth was the tanker, and
the folk I met had all to pay toll, as ye
in: y say, for they dropped things into
my mouth that my humor turns tc as
1 nuickle account as though they were
bawbitn. I'm no sure—"
"Tl ore's no many things ye're no sure
of, Ttmmas."
"And this Is no one of them. It's just
n form of expression, and if ye interrupt
me at ain, Snecky Hobart, I'll saya sarcastic thing about you that instant. What
I was to say was that I'm no sure but
what a humorist swallows everybody
whole that he falls in with."
The Impossibility of telling everything
that befell Haggart ln his wanderings is
best proved in his own words:—
"My adventures," he said, "was so
surprising thief that when I cast thorn
over in my mind I'm like a man in a
corn-field, and every stalk of corn an
adventure. Lads, it's usclesss to expect
me to give you the history of ilka stalk.
I wrax out my left hand, and I grip
something, namely, an adventure; or I
wrax out my right hand and grip something, namely, another adventure. Well,
by keeping straight on in ony direction
we wade through adventures till wc get
out of the field, that is to say, till we
lsnd back at Thrums. Ye sny my adventures sounds different on different nichts.
Precisely, for it all depends ou which
direction I splash off in."
Without going the length of saying
thut Haggart splashed mora than was
necessary, I may perhaps express regret
that he never saw his way to clearing up
certain disputed passages in his wanderings. I would, I know, be ill-thought of
among the friends who survive lilm if I
stuted for a fact that he never reached
London. There was a general wish that
he should have taken London in his
tmvels, and if Haggart hod a weakness
It was his reluctance to disappoint an
audience. 1 must own that he trod down
his corn-field pretty thoroughly before
his hand touched thc corn-stalk called
London, and that his London reminiscences never seemed to me to hnve quite
the air of reality that filled his recollections of Edinburgh. Admitted that he
confirmed glibly as an eye-witness the
report that London houses have no gardens (except at the hack). It remains
undoubted that Craigtebtickle confused
him with the question:—
"What do they charge in LomtoU for
I alf-a-pound of boil lug bei'f and a penny
Haggart answered, but a"
if he had forgotten lhe price
seems natural.
er  a pause, as
i which scarcely
liowivcr, I do
not s.iy that ne was never in ixnoon,
and certainly his curious adventures in it
we still retailed, especially one with an
,0I_c.rant policeman who could not tell
him which was the road to Thrums,
and another with the doorkeeper of the
House of Parliament, who, on being
asked by Haggart "How much was to
pay?" foolishly answered "What you
But though I heartily approve the
feeling in Thrums against those carping
critics who would slice bits off the statue
which we may be said to have reared to
Haggart's memory, some of the stories
now fondly cherished are undoubtedly
mythical. For instance, whotever Look-
aboutyou may soy, I do not believe that
Haggart once flung a clod of earth at the
Pope. It Is perfectly true that some such
story got abroad, but If countenanced by
Haggart It was only because Chirsty had
her own reasons for wanting him to
stand well with the Auld Licht minister.
Often Haggart was siSJ in hhf own presence to have had adventures in such
places as were suddenly discovered by
us in the newspapers, places that had
acquired a public interest, say, because
of a murder; and then he neither agreed
that he had been there nor allowed that
he had not. Thus It is reasonable to believe that his less discriminating admirers
splashed out of Haggart's corn-field into
some other body's without noticing that
they had crossed the dyke. His silence at
those times it a little aggravating to his
chronicler now, but I would be the first
to defend is against detractors. Unquestionably the length of time during which
Haggart would put his under lip over
the upper one, and so shut the door on
words, was one of the grandest proofs
of his humor. However plentiful the
water in the dam may be, there are occasions when it is handy to let down the
I thc moro readily grant that certain
of tho Haggart stories may have been
plucked from the wrong fields, because
there still remain a sufficient number of
authenticated ones to fill the mind with
rapture. A statistician could tell how far
they would reach round the world, supposing they were represented by a brick
apiece, or how long they would take to
pass through a doorway on each other's
heels. We never attempted to count them.
Being only average men we could not
conveniently carry beyond a certain number of the stories about with us, and
thus many would doubtless now be lost
were It not that some of us loaded ourselves with one lot and others with another. Each had his favorites, and Haggart supplied us with the article we
wanted, just as if he and we were or.
opposite sides of a counter. Thus when
we discuss him now we may have new
things to tell of him; nay,even the descendants of his friends are worth listening to
on Haggart, for the stories have been
pnssed on from father to son.
Some enjoyed most his reminiscences
of how he felt each time he had to cut
off another   button.
"bads," ho suid, "I wasna unlike a
doctor. Ye mind JDoctor Skene saying as
how the young doctors at the college
grew faint like at first when they saw
bloj.l gushing, but by and by they became so michty hardy that they could
oil' with a leg as cool as though they
were just hacking sticks?"
"Ay, ho said that."
"Weel, that was my sensations. When
I cut off the first button it was like
sticking the knife into mysel', and I
did it in the dark because I hadna the
heart to look on. Ay, the next button
was a stiff job, too, but after that I grew

rather ye wanted to ken what was the

"How muckle?"
"Try a guess."
"Twa shillings?"
"Twa shillings!" cried Haggort, with
a contempt that would have been severe
had the coins been pennies; "Say, sax
shillings is nearer the mark."
"In one nicht?"
"Ay, ln one single nicht."
"Ye must have lost some of it?"
"Not. a bawbee. Ah, T'nowhead. man,

As far back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the 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
dredge near the town of lillooet.

fan   Picture   of   CanaiU'i    New   Literary
Light    A Stalwart 1'oet.
A poet of almost heroic build is
Arthur Stringer. There are six feet
and an inch ot' him. Also he is more
or less good to look at. An English
recruiting sergeant would scan him
with longing eyes. Seeing him in a
crowd you might pick him out for a
champion athlete or, b.v his smooth
f.ice, i'or a matinee idol. There's
nothing about him to suggest the
itoet—save his- poetry. Neither does
he seen: to have tlie poetic temperament*, lie is no dreamer, no idler.
His mental poise secnu> to be as
sound nnd as well bala. ed as his
physical carriage, which is saying a
good dial.
Canada is rather proud of having
produced such a poet, and with good
cause. London, Ontario, is his birthplace. His years are. about thirty.
He comes from a fine old English
family in which there's an earldom
or something of the sort, but Mr.
Stringer carefully keeps this fact in
the background. He stands on his
own feet. You may see by glancing
at him that he needs no coat-of-
arms background to proclaim his nobility.
He studied and pieyed football at
Toronto University and at Oxford.
If they gave him any degrees he has
forgotten it. Before he was twenty-
five he had published two volumes of
verse iu Canada. They were slim
little volumes which brought him
small fame and less money. Yet it
was poetry, good poetry. The Canadians, however, prefer to wait until
"The States" discover their geniuses
bciore showing their own appreciation. So Mr. Stringer sailed down
into New York, prepared to starve
in a hall bedroom. But he didn't.
The New York magazine editors—
who are much maligned, vou know—
promptly discovered that-his poetry
was good and paid him well lor his
verses. Since then, both by short
stories and verse, he has been winning wide recognition and the regards which accompany the same.
.lust now, while his new book of
poems is being praised by the London critics, while thc publishers are
issuing his first novel, "The Silver
Poppy," Mr. Stringer is up in Ontario, on the shores of Lake Erie,
looking after his fruit farm, working
in blue shirt-and overalls and enjoying himself hugely. . Next fall, when
his melons and pears and grapes
have all been gathered and sold, he
will pack his trunks and typewriting
machine and start cither for New
York or London, where he will settle
clown for a winter's hard work.
Mr. Stringer's novel is likelv to receive an extraordinary amount of attention in the newspapers on account of the identity of the well-
known writer who figures in the book
as Cordelia Vaughn. Mr. Stringer
lirst mot the lady in the manner described in thc book, and his experiences of this "yellow vampire" ore.
faithfully described. Every writer in
"New York will know the original of
Mr. Stringer's heroine, and few will
dispute thc truth of his portrayal.
It is moro than likelv that Cordelia
.Vaughn's real name will soon be suggested in the newspapers.—The Reader.
Mr. Warrle's Little Joke.
James M. Barric, the famous Scottish author, who is very fdiy at social functions or banquets, and can
hardly be induced to either converse
freely or utter a speech, is not above
j'oking fun at himself. On one occasion there appeared in the Scots
Observer a brilliant lampoon in
■Which Mr. Barrio was represented as
attending a public dinner, keeping
every one in roars of laughter wilh
his unceasing stream of wit and
epigram, and finally ending up ly
making the speech of the evening.
When a certain literary friend of Mr.
Barrie's saw this wickedly clever
piece of satire, his indignation I new
no bounds, and he rushed into print
demanding by all the outraged gods
lhat th*. author of this infamous article should straightway disclose hiin-
*elf, and bo dealt with accordingly.
But, aias for the well-mentiing friend,
the author was ._■.__- other than Mr.
Barric himself.

One wet morning soon after her
arrival the old gardener, who did
not then know her, saw her about
to descend a treacherous bit of
ground from the terrace and called
"Be careful, miss; it's slape!" a
Yorkshire Word for slippery.
The ever curious Princess, turning
her head, asked, "What's slape?" and
at the same instant her feet Hew
from  under her nnd  she came  down.

negotiated by Mr. Col/den in 1S61,
would seem to have received a check.
The impo'tation of willl wines from
France has fallen off hy 807,, 000 bullous. The sales of Burgundy, Sau-
terne and Chablis have not mateiial-
ly varied, and the defitit is entirely
attributable to the comparative neglect of claret. In spite of war in
the first five months of 1902 and
high taxation, there was an increase
In the consumption of champagne of
nearly -" 000 gallons. The decline
of claret has naturally heen followed hy an increase in the drinking of
port. Thc importation of this wine
has increased by Hi),000 gallons, and
if Pr. Johnson's dictum be true that
claret is the drink for boys and
port wine for men, wo ought, I su|>-
pose, s iys a London correspondent,
to rejoice at the change, All good
patriots will be glad to lrarn that
the importation of German wines hasi
fallen off, und they will be equally
delighted to hear that, there has been
a growth in the consumption of Australian wines of over 256,000 gallons.
