THE IROQOUIS DISASTER
There is general gratification at the certainty that the Iroquois disaster will be
thoroughly investigated both in the criminal and in the Admiralty courts. The
course finally adopted by the Dominion
and Provincial Governments will meet
with universal approval, and everyone will
be content to await the outcome of the
various enquiries. So far the action of
both Governments fully justifies the stand
taken by The Week, and .there is little
doubt that in the end that, measure of justice will be attained which is the most cherished privilege of every British subject.
It is not a little gratifying also to find that
the loss of the Sechelt is included in the
scope of the enquiry. Anything more unsatisfactory than the perfunctory investigation into the matter could hardly be imagined, and The Week will be greatly surprised if the more expert examination of
the Admiralty Court does not result in
further criminal indictments. It is fitting
now to wait, but meanwhile attention
should be called to the subject matter of
the letter of Mr. A. G. Sargison, calling
attention to the remarkable statements of
Mate Isbister. He showed a total lack of
judgment and an entire absence of responsibility, and if there are many more men
of his calibre to whom certificates have
been entrusted we have not yet heard the
last of Iroquois disasters.
RESCUE WORK
A few weeks ago The Week published a
paragraph referring to the visit of a lady
to Victoria for the purpose of finding
homes for girls who had been rescued from
a life of shame. Several ladies prominent
in reform work in this city wrote complaining that the paragraph in question
was incorrect, and that neither the W. C.
T. IT., the Y. W. C. A. nor the Women's
Council had any official knowledge of the
visit of such a lady or of her proposals.
In justice to these institutions The Week
has made further enquiries ancl finds that
the facts are as follows:—A little while
ago a lady identified with rescue work
across the Sound visited Victoria for the
purpose alleged, bringing with her proper
letters of introduction. One of the leading ladies in Victoria took the matter up
and a drawing-room meeting was held at
her house, when the proposal was considered and as the original informant of The
Week who was present stated—turned
down. There is, however, another side of
the question which in justice to the excellent organizations mentioned should be
made public. It is that for upwards of
twenty years rescue work of the most effective kind has been carried on in Victoria by the W. C. T. U. There is a home
to which women of the class under consideration are taken and cared for, and in due
course if they continue to evince a disposition to lead a better life, they are placed
out, generally at a distance, and through
the medium of other branches of the W. C.
T. U. The Week is informed by the
President that an average of about twenty
women a year have passed through this institution and that the majority of these
have been permanently rescued. The
Week has the greatest possible pleasure in
giving publicity to these facts, and in paying a well-deserved tribute to the self-
denying labours of those who have been
able to achieve such splendid results. It
is evident that the ladies who "turned
down their thumbs" are not to be found
among" those who have been active workers ror the reform organizations of the
city, but rather among those to whom an
afternoon drawing-room meeting furnishes
a slight distracting interlude between two
sessions of bridge.
A SEISMOLOGICAL OBSERVATORY
A memorial has been forwarded to the
Dominion Government urging.that a seis-
mological observatory should be established in or near Victoria.. The petition
has been printed verbatim in the daily
press, and has received the endorsation of
the Board of Trade, the Natural History
Society, the Vancouver Island Development League, the Trades and Labour
Council and the City Council. A good
case is made out by the petitioners, who
are able to point to the excellent work already done in this field by Mr. Napier
Denison. The application is greatly
strengthened by the opinion of Dr. Wal-
cott, the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, who considers the Pacific Coast a
specially favourable location for such an
institution. The total cost of one installation is estimated at the very modest sum
of $30,000 and The Week hopes that the
Government will see its way to make the
necessary grant, and to appoint Mr. Denison to take charge of the installation.
When a man's scientific work has been favourably commented on by such eminent
professors as Dr. Knott of Edinburgh
University and Sir George Darwin of
Cambridge, there can be no question of his
competency to continue the very important
research work with which he has been engaged.       	
PRIVATE MEETINGS
No doubt there are times when it is desirable to hold sittings of the City CounciL
"in camera", and possibly when the delicate subject of promotions is under consideration the procedure is justifiable. But
The Week would strongly urge that the
fewer of such sessions to be held the better,
indeed, it is doubtful if the object in view
would not be better served by admitting
the reporters and leaving the matter to
their discretion. No reporter who values
his professional reputation would abuse a
privilege of this kind, and since nothing
can prevent him getting at the facts it is
far better that he should get them at first
hand. A suggestion from the Chair Avill
always ensure silence when the public interest is to be served.
is to say the least of it, extremely unwise,
and if the Police Magistrate were less considerate and courteous he would undoubtedly have had something to say on the subject. The Week would be glad if the law
prohibited bail in such cases, but since the
magistrate has no option but to grant bail
it would appear that not even so admirable
an institution as the Childrens Aid Society had any right to appear in court to
prefer a request. It is hardly conceivable
that this step was taken either with the
consent or on the advice of the counsel of
the Society, and in any event it should not
be repeated. The other incident is of an
extremely serious character, and The
Week can only express the greatest surprise that it was not followed by drastic
action on the part of the Police Authorities. The Crown prosecutor, Mr. J. A.
Aikman, made the definite statement that
a man named Harry Morton had made an
offer of $5,000 to the guardian of the unfortunate girl if he would drop the proceedings against the accused. If anyone
can thus endeavor to thwart the ends of
justice, and compound a felony, without
being called upon to answer to the courts
there must be something rottener in the
State of Denmark than most people will be
willing to believe.
THE LIBERTY OF THE SUBJECT
The Week must own to a little impatience with respect to illegal incarceration
of a Hindu by the police authorities. No
doubt it is the intention of the Police Commissioners to make some enquiries, and at
least to satisfy themselves that no injustice
was committed. All The Week is anxious
to know is how far the police are prepared
to go in locking up prospective witnesses
at the instigation of private prosecutors.
This is a matter which affects the personal
liberty of every man, and in this connection an Hindu is of just as much importance as a white man. It is not a question
of race or colour, but of British justice.
The Week is not pre-judging the case; it
has taken a great deal of trouble to obtain
signed statements. These have been before the public and the police for more
than a week, and it will be satisfactory to
have some statement on the subject so that
British subjects may know just what
risks they run when they happen to be in
a position to furnish evidence.
STRANGE PROCEEDINGS
In Tuesday afternoon's Times a report
appeared of a case whicli ccurred in the
police court on that day, when a Vancouver man was charged with a most serious
offence alleged to have been committed on
a young girl. The charge will be dealt
with in due course, but two incidents occurred which certainly call for investigation. The first was the intervention of a
representative of the Children's Aid Society asking the court not to allow bail. It
seems to The Week that such a procedure
THE MONTREAL WITNESS
The Montreal Witness is the most eminently respectable newspaper in Canada.
Its editor, Mr. John Dougall, comes of a
distinguished literary family and is easily
one of the most brilliant editorial writers
on the Continent. Indeed, when dealing
with great subjects he rises to a level in
which he has few if any rivals. The Witness has been established a great many
years, and has always enjoyed the respect
of the public, and yet it does not pay, and
its financial fortunes have reached such a
low ebb that the proprietors will be obliged
to cease publication unless the churches
come to the rescue. The fate of the Witness presents no problem to the man in the
street, and furnishes the best possible illustration of the fact that the public want
to read the news—all the news—and that
news cannot be suppressed without the
policy reacting on the paper that ventures
to depart from a wholesome rule. The
Witness boasts that it has never published
a whisky advertisement, a tobacco advertisement, a sporting news item, or any police court case containing objectionable
features. All this may be, and undoubtedly is, highly creditable to the principles
of the proprietary, but a journal which follows this course is in no sense of the word
a newspaper and however brilliant its literary qualities, it cannot succeed. On the
subject of advertising The Week has nothing to say. It is probable that the loss it
has sustained by refusing wiiisky advertisements has been more than made up by
its friends, but when it comes to a question
of circulation it is hopeless to expect people to buy a nowspaper which carefully
eliminates the news. No pretence will suffice to prove that the world is all good, and
that everything is just as it should be.
Men are not made strong by a milk diet.
People not only want to know but have a
right to know what is going on round them.
And while every decent journal will carefully edit its police reports no newspaper
worthy of the name will suppress the news.
Such a. course is as illogical as an attempt
to enlighten people by keeping them in the
dark. The Witness will probably pass; it
is an anachronism; it could not possibly
live without special contributions from the
churches, and of all organizations the
churches will be the last to make any special contribution for the support of the
Witness. The day will come when the reform organizations of the world will control the public press but that time has not

ft
On many occasions previously have
I had to complain of the prevailing
habit of leaving packing-cases on the
sidewalks. Merely from the point of
view of scenic effect one would havc
thought that in a city like Victoria,
which justly boasts of its beauty, all
the store-keepers, wholesale as well
as retail, would have done their utmost to preserve the harmonies and
to avoid littering the pavements with
such unsightly eye-sores. But no.
Scenic effect may be all right but it
does not appeal to the firm which is
too lazy, or busy, or inconsiderate, to
dispose of its packing-cases before
the business day opens. I have a
very strong idea that if anyone were
to take the trouble to hunt up the
by-laws it would be found that such
practices are illegal and that the public-spirited citizen who was disposed
to go to the inconvenience of prosecuting could make things warm, for
the offenders. But nobody is likely
to do this and it remains for the
Lounger to register an occasional
"kick" when the matter is brought
forcibly home to him.
>. * *
And it has been very forcibly
brought home to him. I am not
really worrying about scenic effects.
I am worrying over a new pair of
trousers. Now that the Queen of
Spain is permitted to have legs, I
suppose a Lounger may be allowed
to have trousers. Whether he is, or
not, the fact remains that last Tuesday I ruined a pair owing to the
presence of a packing-case with a
jagged edge being left on the sidewalk on a prominent business corner. The week before, a gentleman of
my acquaintance narrowly escaped
having his eye put out by a packing-case with a big nail protruding.
I am not going to mention the
names of the firms responsible, for
the simple reason that there are
many others just as bad, but which
do not happen to have been so vividly, brought to my attention.
Doubtless I could get compensation
for my trousers, and if the other
man had lost his sight he could have
obtained damages from the firm; but
in neither case would the principle of
the thing have been affected. If it
isn't a crime and high misdemeanour
to leave packing-cases on the sidewalk it ought to be, and I hope that
next time there is a civic election
some of the candidates for aldermanic honours will make the abolition of this practice one of the planks
in their platform.
And whilst we are on the subject
of sidewalks it might be as well to
make some mention of the obstruction of Douglas Street opposite the
new Sayward Block. It is all very
well to allow contractors half the
pavement for their work-shops, etc.,
but when this means that every time
that there is a down-pour of rain
a lake forms on thc public highway
it is time to call a halt. On Tuesday
morning last quite a nice little pond
was in evidence, owing to thc drainage being blocked. Not much harm
was done, but there you are at the
principle of the thing again.
*   *   *
It is about time that various employment agencies in the States and
on the Mainland of the Province
were brought up with a good tight
rein. It is surely a serious offence
to book a man for a job, charge him
for the commission, take his money
and then land him out at a place
where they are already over-stocked
with labour. An instance occurred
right here only lately. A man was
sent over from Vancouver to work at
Colwood. He wasn't wanted there,
but he got a little work, just enough
to enable him to pay his commission
fee to find a dollar for the hospital
and to put $1.50 in his jeans. Once
on thc Island it takes money to get
away. That is to say that as long
as we permit out-of-town employment agencies to send men over here
on such jobs just so long are we
importing a pauper population.
* *   *
It's all very well to talk about
good times and to say that anyone
who wants it can get work. Bu' is
it true? I trow not. Have you noticed how many people will talk in
that high-falutin' strain who are entirely unable to makei good if they
are definitely asked to find a man a
job. It is so easy to say "Work, my
boy? Any quantity of it. Look at
all the building going on. Consider
the railway and tramway develop
ment. There's heaps of work." Next
time anyone says that to you, just
tell him that you know a man who
wants a job. Any kind of a job.
Then the tune is different. It plays
this sort of a measure. "That's too
bad. I wish you had seen me yesterday; I could have placed him then,
but now .   Really,  I  don't  think
1 know of anything. However, I'll
keep it in mind and let you know."
Is that true, my friends, or am I
drawing the long bow? You know
it's true. *   *   *
Of course, work is a beastly thing.
Nobody likes it, but unfortunately
none, of us can do without it. Those
people who don't have to work for
their grub have to hunt round and
either work at their games or go in
heavily for charitable institutions and
call themselves Hon. Sees. One of
the most miserable men I have ever
met is a relative of mine in England.
He was a busy man all the early
part of his life and then he quit work
on a big pension with money of his
own besides. He promptly developed a liver and an irritable temper
and has been forced to regard all
his games as work. Where another
man would say that he was engaged
for Monday because there was a
Board meeting, he has to say that
Monday is his golf day. Tuesdays
he consecrates to Badminton; Wednesdays to tennis, and so on. It is
really pathetic.
* *   *
As I havc often said before, the
real pleasure of work lies in the fact
that one gets so much more enjoyment out of a stolen holiday. The
Good Book tells us that stolen bread
is sweet. The same thing is true of
an extra hour in bed on a morning
when there is so much work to do
in the office that it is really hardly
worth while starting in on it. I suppose you have noticed that on Sundays, when we can all (parsons excluded) lie in bed as long as wc
like, some microbe wakes us up
earlier than usual and refuses to allow us to take the extra rest to
which we have been looking forward
all thc week. If we resist the microbe and continue between the
sheets, there is little or no satisfaction in thc luxury. Real pleasure
consists in lying in bed when there
are three appointments on hand and
your own telephone is out of order.
* *   *
And that word "telephone" gives
me my next cue. "Central" is a dear,
good girl, and she is as obliging as
she can be, and that is saying a good
deal.     But .   You've   noticed   it
yourself, haven't you? There is no
doubt about it, Victoria is going 'way
back on telephone service. I understand that there is to be a great
change in the near future; more
switch-boards are to be installed. At
present there is no doubt but that
there is a great scarcity of room, and
that the operators are worked off
their feet. Still, it is rather annoying to have "Central" make up her
mind that when once you have got
your  connection  you  are  going to
keep up a long conversation, and refrain from ringing you off when you
are through. At the same time I
think that "Central" is a very long-
suffering individual, a very obliging
one and a big creditor to the public.
There are times when I wonder how
on earth she manages to stand it. If
I had half the foolishness to put up
with which she has, especially when
the fair sex is on the wire,'I should
fire off a bad language stunt which
would disconnect the 'phone.
And that reminds me. I always
rejoice if I can remember a little
item, which does not show up the fair
sex in the angel department. I was
on a Spring Ridge car on Wednesday
last at the time when a number of
young ladies were going up to the
George Jay School. I entered the
car at the corner of Yates and Government Streets and I was rather
horrified to see that it was likely to
be crowded. I had had a lot of
walking to do, with more in front
of me, and I was honestly tired. I
certainly did not want to have to
give up my seat. The car filled up
in inverse ratio to my anticipations
of a comfortable ride. Somewhere
on Pandora Street another congregation, of femininity arrived. There
were seats for all save one; she was
fair, fat and about eighteen. A tired-
looking man in the corner arose and
gave her his seat, which she took
without a word of thanks. I was very
thankful that he was nearer to the
entrance than I was and did the
''graceful" before I had the chance.
I believe that I should have been
rude enough to have said: "I beg
your pardon." "I didn't say anything, sir," she would have replied,
which would have given me the opportunity of retaliating with, "Oh, I
thought you said, thank-you."
* *   *
But perhaps it was nervousness on
her part, which prevented her from
acknowledging the courtesy. Let's
hope so. But a consideration of this
incident brings 'me to another topic.
Have you ever noticed what lovely
roads and sidewalks there are outside
Victoria proper. By that I mean to
say that on the borders of the City
limits there are all kinds of luxuries
which are denied to mere dwellers
on—say Superior Street. True, there
are no houses as ye"t, or very few.
But cement sidewalks are there; roads
are in evidence and when the houses
arrive it will all be ready for them.
This applies to many districts. The
Dallas Road has streets opening onto it, all nicely repaired. Go out
into the country off the Edmonton
Road, and you will see magnificent
sidewalks. This is as it should be,
and all credit to the City Engineer,
but why shouldn't some of the inside
streets have a little more attention?
If Superior Street were put into proper shape I could die happy. I am
quite young yet and I may have thc
felicity of dying happy, but I doubt
it. The only other thing to which
I am looking forward is to the
breaking of my leg in that region
and thereafter living luxuriously in
the hospital at the City's expense.
Someone is sure to jdo it, and I
don't see why I shouldn't be the
lucky  one.
* *   *
I havc been asked to make mention again of the prevailing habit of
bicycle-riding on sidewalks. I have
refrained from so doinft for a
long time for the following reason:
Some months ago I was walking on
the sidewalk leading past the Jubilee
Hospital. The road there was impassible for cyclists and two boys
belonging to the University School
were using the sidewalk on their
wheels. I looked at the road, also
at the sidewalk, and came to the
conclusion that it wouldn't hurt me
to oblige them. Judge of my consternation when they both took off
their caps and said "Thank-you, sir."
I registered that incident in my mind
as something to the credit of the boys
of Victoria in general and of the
University School in particular. But
that does not excuse boys using
Trounce Avenue as a public bicycle
track. I am told that the police
cannot touch a boy if he is riding
Every Up-to-date Man
Now-a-days uses White Rock Water when entertaining.
As a dilutante for whisky, wine or milk it is positively
unrivalled.
This is the reason why few bottles of any water except
White Rock are now seen at any of the swell hotels, clubs
or cafes in any city.
White Rock is the most popular water, and it is only
right that it should be, for it is the best mineral water procurable.
While it is a little more expensive than other (so-
called) mineral waters, it is well worth the slight difference
in price because it is absolutely pure, delicious and sparkling.

the two plays, unless it be

impersonation of "Glad,"
Llliott, and the exquisite por-
of "The Servant in the
_y Mr. Manson. Both were
sed by intellectuality, subt-
restraint; and both made an
impression on the audience,
st thing which strikes one

at a change! Her work in
wn of a Tomorrow" was
and definite as it was grace-
harming.   She distinctly re
called some phases of Jenny Lee's
immortal impersonation of "Poor
Jo," whilst in other parts of the play
she arose to a height of which that
actress was never capable.
"The Dawn of a To-morrow" is
as wholesome as it is interesting and
Miss Elliott's acting was as convincing as it was entertaining. She
had some supreme moments; the
most dramatic being in the act where
she visits Holt in his chambers in
order to force him to save her lover.
There was literally a thrill in every
word she uttered, and the final
triumph of her sublime trust was depicted with an artistic perfection
which  nothing  could  excel.
It is not to derogate from the
merits of Miss Elliott's performance
to say that she many times suggested
the personality of her distinguished
husband. She has even caught some
of his characteristic movements, ancl
has certainly developed some of his
marvellous elocutionary powers. Her
voice, which at one time was rather
weak and ineffective, is now strong
and full, and the air of languor which
one associated with her manner six
or eight years ago has given place
to one of brightness and vivacity.
On the whole Miss Elliott may be
said to have scored a great triumph
and to have played her way into the
hearts of her audience. She was fortunate in bringing a splendid play,
but even so her matured acting gave
promise of still greater things, and
if she continues to improve as she has
done recently she may yet attain the
very highest rank amongst English-
speaking actresses.
of the best being "Thirty-Minutes
Jack" which was a good comedy, and
"The Storm," which was a powerful
drama. I should like to make special
mention of the Romano orchestra
which is a feature of the show by
no means to be passed over without
a word of commendation.
The Crystal Theatre
I always enjoy going to the Crystal because Herr Nagel has such a
happy knack of playing the right
music at* the right time. It would
appear that many other people think
the same thing for I have noticed
that the attendance now-a-days is
much larger than it used to be and
though the hall is by far the largest
in the town, it would seem that it
is by no means too large. There
have been a capital set of films running all through the week.
The Majestic Theatre
A. good dramatic film was that presented in the middle of the week representing a scene from the Civil
War in the States. Humour was well
represented by "Father against his
will," a film which kept the house in
roars of laughter. The Majestic is
always to be seen with S. O. R. sign
outside, Mr. Christie invariably supplying the right Kind of pictures.
The New Grand
The Nat Nazarro Company have
been running a first-class turn at the
popular vaudeville house this week;
their balancing is really good and
some of their feats are unique. I
consider their act is one of the best
seen in Victoria. Barnes & Robinson have a rather mediocre stunt
which includes dancing and music.
"Taking the Third Degree" is the title
of an extremely amusing little sketch
presented by Monroe & Mack which
is far ahead of the usual one-act
comedies. A dancing turn is put on
the boards by Bruce Morgan and his
Piccadilly Johnnies, and they are all
artists on their feet. In these days
of aviation it is satisfactory to know
that it is possible to live and havc
one's being in mid-air. Claude Ranff
is the gentleman at the Grand who
shows how to do it.
Romano's Theatre
Mr. Quaggliotti can always be de
pended on to give his patrons a good
hour's amusement and instruction at
Romano's and this week has been no
exception to the rule. There have
been many good films on view, some
Madame Sherry
At the Victoria Theatre next Tuesday and Wednesday, Victoria playgoers will have their first view of
''Madame Sherry," the musical comedy or French vaudeville which scored so tremendously in Chicago and
New York, and which, from all accounts, approaches the perfect mark
in merry and tuneful gaiety. If the
merits of an attraction can be guaged
by the many flattering reports which
precede it, then "Madame Sherry" is
the most satisfying offering the musical stage has produced in many years.
Production, costumes, scenic effects and all other details of the performance denote individuality and absolute "class." "Madame Sherry" is
entirely different from any other
musical offering, and it is almost a
foregone conclusion that the local engagement will establish a new record
for attendance and satisfaction.
The Sheffield Choir and Musical
Reciprocity
The forthcoming visit of the world-
famous Sheffield Choir to this city in
May is a musical event of the first
importance. It signifies thc outcome
of a widely expressed desire for
closer and more intimate relations
between Canada and Great Britain in
matters musical, and Dr. Charles
Harriss, who has organized the
world-wide tour of the choir, has included Victoria in its itinerary in order to comply with requests received from numerous citizens that this
great choral organization should pay
us a visit. On the occasion of the
Choir's tour of Canada two years ago,
they paid a flying visit to Buffalo, and
the immense Convention Hall of that
city was taxed to its utmost capacity at the two performances they
gave there, the press united in eulogistic articles, declaring that no such
choir had ever been heard there before.
The Choir Dr. Harriss is bringing
this time is an even better organization, for Dr. Henry Coward, its famous conductor, has submitted every
member to the severest possible
tests, and as a result he has gathered
together the finest body of trained
singers he has ever had under his
baton—the greatest choir, he declares,
the world has ever known.

Holiday Resorts
BY BOHEMIAN
There are probably few holiday resorts which are so little known as the
Isle of Man. Most people associate
it with the name of Hall Caine, a
three-legged crest and a House of
Keys. Few, however, seem to have
looked upon it as a place of interest
or as a spot where a fortnight can
be most pleasantly spent by the jaded
worker. Of course, it is not advisable to go to the Isle of Man during
the summer holidays. Douglas, the
principal town, is then over-crowded
with Lancashire cotton operatives
and their wives and the whole island
takes on the aspect of a Margate on
a bank holiday. The time to visit
the Isle of Man is in the off season—
say about Easter time, just after the
rush.
It must be about ten years since
I went there. I had made arrangements to spend a fortnight with a
iriend in tramping over the island,
and at the last moment he failed me.
': had made up my mind to go and I
went alone. The first thing that,
struck me on landing from the Liverpool boat at Douglas was the number of women touts from the various  boarding  houses  in  the  town.
They might be classed with the
"boys" at Tangiers or the hotel runners of this continent. I was not
intending to stay in Douglas, however, so their attentions did not worry
me. From Douglas an electric car
runs to Ramsey, a delightful country
town with all the conveniences of
modern life and none of the nuisances. To anyone who may take advantage of Coronation rates and who
may have the time to run over to
the island, I would recommend the
Mitre Hotel at Ramsey. It is not
a modern hostelry with lifts and
electric lights, unless these have been
installed since my visit, but it is comfortable in every sense of the word.
But someone will say, "Why go to
the Isle of Man?" And the answer is
"to walk." Never have I been in a
place where walking is better worth
while. And in every direction there
is something to be seen. The island
abounds in glens which are literally
fairy glens. Waterfalls, rustic
bridges, picturesque scenery are all
to be seen within a minute's walk
from the highway. That is one of
the things which astounded me most.
For a small charge, the visitor is
conducted from,.,, civilization into
primeval surroundings; and to the
everlasting credfciof the Isle of Man
authorities in ntf~--ease have they allowed improvements to disfigure
Nature.
I think it quite possible that I have
a sentimental affection for the Isle of
Man because it was the first and only
time in my life that I had the privilege of spending a holiday entirely
by myself. For a whole fortnight,
I held no conversation with a fellow-
being except in the way of ordering
my meals at the hotel, or when I was
buying something in a shop. There
is something very attractive about
being alone. You can walk your own
pace; you can talk if you want to
and there is nobody to interrupt; you
can criticise the scenery without fear
of contradiction, and you can think
a whole lot.
One thing I noticed and that is that
the  natives,  the  original  Manxman,
do not like strangers. I had been
told of this failing of theirs before,
but it was brought very forcibly to
my notice in the hotel. As soon as
ever I entered the smoking room all
conversation ceased and I felt myself
the cynosure of all eyes. Of course,
this might have been due to my
own- personality and they may not
have thought me a prepossessing individual. But let that pass. I always
look back with the keenest pleasure
to the fortnight I spent at Ramsey.
*   *   *
But there are other spots nearer
home; that is to say if you happen
to be living in the eastern counties of
Engand. The Norfolk Broads offer
entertainment whicii is well worth
trying. It is a very favourite diversion of 'Varsity men to put in a week
or so on the Broads. No experience
is needed, because the wily yacht or
wherry owners of Oylton or Yarmouth know their class of trade and
keep their skippers trained. I remember a wherry-yacht at Oulton one
summer ten years ago. For the benefit of the uninitiated I might remark
that a wherry is a boat built for business on the inland waters of Norfolk
and Suffolk and that it is propelled by
means of a'pole. Not a punt-pole;
this is worked differently and they
call the method of propulsion "quanting."      ■
We went from Oulton to Beccles
and then on to Yarmouth. All along
the river banks there are riverside
hotels with bowling greens and skittle-alleys, and I know no happier way
of spending a holiday than sailing quietly up to one of these places, mooring
the boat and emulating the example
of Sir Francis Drake on the bowling-
green. One has to be careful crossing Bradenwater outside Yarmouth.
If there are any storms about they
are pretty sure to catch a boat here.
Yarmouth itself is a charming place
for a holiday loafer. It is old-fashioned and provided that the holiday
season is not on it is full of interest
for the visitor. The quaint little
streets; the church dedicated to St.
Nicholas which is the biggest parish
church in England, and the beach all
help to interest anyone who is not
looking for anything too exciting.
I have never been able to understand why it is that so many people
find it necessary to leave their own
country in order to go for a holiday.
Wherever a man is he may be sure
that within a short distance there is
a place which will afford him all the
recreation lie requires. ^Hl
Mischa Elman
The Victoria Musical Society scored
a notable success in the engagement
of Mischa Elman, one of the most
delightful violinists whom it has been
my good pleasure to hear for many
years. The critic who writes in a
morning contemporary says that "Elman is not yet a Sarasate and Ysaye
nor a Kreisler." He might just as
well have added to the roll of honour
Paganini, Joachim and Neruda. Suffice it that Elman is Elman, and
many people not altogether devoid of
musical taste derived as much
pleasure from his playing as they
would have done from almost any of
the great masters of the past. One
thing at least may fairly be said, that
if Kubelik has greater executive ability, Elman has an infinitely tenderer
tone, and a more poetic temperament. Whilst the former "clubs" his
instrument into obedience the latter
wooes it, and I venture to think with
a more humanizing effect. It is a just
criticism that Elman has only one
fault and unfortunately that will be
remedied all too soon—he is young.
With years he will gain breadth and
colouring.    Beyond    that    there    is
little improvement to hope for

A Dingy Store Front Doesn't Improve Business!
Putting on a good front applies just as strongly to the business house as it does to the business man.   You may be all right
inside, but if you don't look it nobody believes you are.   "The apparel oft proclaims the man."   It's the same with a building.
A gloomy exterior is a bad index to the store within.

| of Automatic Guns Is Objected to
[wing to  their  destructiveness  to
le birds, Mr. Bryan' Williams, pro-
Rial game warden, has recommend-
j:he British Columbia Government
prohibit the use of automatic guns
lhe province.    As the  Game Act
Ids at present it is possible to do
'' by order-in-council.   The present
[however, does not at present ap-
Ito pump-guns, which are almost
[illy destructive, and in  order to
It this difficulty the Game Act will
lably   be  amended   next   session.
, men sent by the game warden to
some   measures   for   the   exter-
lition of wolves in northern Van-
J-er Island have returned with the
[rt that they could find practical-
lo  wolves there,  though  cougars
|: very plentiful.   The game war-
observes  with   satisfaction   that
li government   bounty   of   $15   on
[■es and cougars is working well,
j a great many of these  animals
(being destroyed.    This year thc
Irnment voted $28,000 for the de-
ftion of these pests, and the mon-
inducements must work a great
lof good.

|e Canadian Pacific Railway Corn-
has awarded the contract for the
[ing of the Swiss  Village, about
rnile west of Golden, to the firm
layden and'Skean, Calgary. The
lings will be completed by Sep-
ler lst.
C. P. R. Looking Ahead
|e C. P. R. is going to keep its
litain hotels open all winter in
lutiire, and a great deal of atten-
Ivill be paid to winter sports and
"ptions. Toboggan slide, skating,

be encouraged and taken  up at
each mountain resort through the
main.line where the C. P. R. has a
hotel located.
Two  Canadian Eights for Henley
That the Argonauts intend sending
their crack eight across to Henley is
the information contained in a letter
received from a member of the Toronto club last week, the. missive stating that the crew was now at work
indoors, but as the entries for the Old
Country regetta did not close until
June lst, that the official entry of the
Argos would not be announced until
just previous to the registration of
the crew. This is the crew that was
withdrawn from the Canadian Hen-
Icy last year because of the unfortunate drowning of one of the Taylor
boys, a member of the crew, the day
before the St. Kitts races. Western
rowing supporters claim that this boat
load can trim the champion Ottawa
eight, and it is claimed that this is
the main reason for the trip of the
Toronto oarsmen, iust to get another
chance at the Ottawa squad. Canada
will have a splendid chance of whipping the Old Country crews should
both the Ottawa and Argonaut clubs
send their cracl.s across the pond, and
with Argos sending a senior four over
and Butler, the Canuck single scull
champion also taking in the jaunt, the
northern rowing world would bc well
lepresented.
High Grade Ore Struck in Tunnel
A lead of high grade ore was struck
in the big tunnel on April 12. It was
encountered at a depth of 818 feet
from the surface of the Defrance
claim and at a distance of a little over
1,800 feet from the portal of the tunnel. The lead carries ore worth more
than $100 a ton. The ore resembles
that found in the Providence mine.
This strike is the most important
event that has occurred in the Boundary for many years. It demonstrates
that the high grade ores of this camp
can be found at great depth.
Steel Plant for Vancouver
To arrange a site at Vancouver ioi
a mammoth steel plant, Mr. W. Owen,
the famous English steel expert, has
returned to the coast from England.
Mr. Owen has secured large iron
areas in B. C. and since his arrival
has negotiated for the purchase of-
three additional in n properties in the
interior. Construction on the plant
will begin immediately, as a desirable
site has been secured in the vicinity
of Vancouver.
Million Dollar Paper Mill
A paper mill, costing $1,000,000 and
having a capacity of 100 tons a day
will be erected by the Spanish River
Pulp & Paper Company at Espanola,
Ont.. where the company already has
a 6,000 square mile concession, and
will erect a model village of 2,000
families.
Locating Line of Kettle Valley
Three engineering parties are in the
field locating the main line of the
Kettle Valley railway. Two are engaged east and west of Princeton
while the third outfit is working wesl
from Coldwater summit to Roberts
Pass, a point south of Aspen Grove.
Construction gangs arc now busy at
grading work from Midway west to
Bull Creek canyon, a distance of 30
miles in all. About 20 miles of this
grade is finished. There is also great
activity beyond the end of the railway
south of Merritt in the Nicola valley.
The management expects to have 100
miles of track laid before next fall.
This total will include the 20 miles already built south from Merritt.
Calgary Health Officer
Dr. A. S. Estey of Calgary has been
appointed   medical   health   officer to

The Queen Charlotte Cold Storage
and Black Cod Fishing Company,
Ltd., has been incorporated under the

$300,000. The officers and directors
are well known Vancouver business
men, viz.: President, Mayor Taylor, of

Bee Keeping in British Columbia
An illustrated pamphlet of some
fifty pages dealing with the subject of
- ee Keeping in British Columbia has
been issued by the Provincial Department of Agriculture. It is the work
of Mr. F. Dundas Todd, who is an expert on the subject, and contains all
the information that could be desired
by any person who wishes to.go into
this profitable industry. Most of the
pamphlet is of a technical character,
designed to be of strictly practical
value, but there are nevertheless some
facts in it which may be of some use
to thc general public.
New Telegraph Line
Word has just been received at Battleford from Ottawa that an appropriation of $37,000 has been made for the
construction of a portion of the proposed government telegraph line from
Battleford to Isle Lacrosse, 250 miles
north of here. An appropriation has
also been made for the prosecution of
surveys on the Saskatchewan River
and an engineer is now engaged with
a party taking cross sections of the
river at this point.
Eaton Invades Calgary
It has been announced that Eatons
are to invade Calgary, and that a
splendid big departmental store will
be built in the Alberta metropolis.
President Eaton stated that the store-
will be built in record time. W. J,
Gunn, manager of the mail order department of the firm, has been for
some time in Calgary, where he has
been making careful observations,
and his reports have been submitted
to the president of the firm. The recent activity of the Hudson's Bay
Company and other big firms, such
as Pryce Jones, both of whom have
planned big stores in that city, is responsible for this move on the part of
Eatons. 	
Greenwood Steel Bridge
The C. P. R. will build a steel
bridge at Greenwood ' this summer
that will cost $6o,ooo. Between Nelson and Midway this year two steel
bridges will be built, and six other
bridges filled in. About 8o miles of
the road will be re-ballasted, and the
73-pound rails replaced with steel rails
weighing 85 pounds. It will be a busy
year in the Boundary for railway
workers.
A SIGNAL FAILURE
Prohibition having proven in practice a signal failure in Tenessee,
changes to be made forthwith will
take the form of an excise law under
which no fewer than three hundred
liquor licenses will be issued for Mem
liquor licenses will be issued for
Memphis City alone. The law will
provide for segregation in the downtown district, absolutely prohibiting
saloons in thc residence neighbourhood. Strict closing regulations will
be included in the law, and license
will be placed at probably from $1,000
to $1,500 a year each for the state,
county and city, and failure to observe the state law or the city ordinances will result in forfeiture of
the license.

The Chinese Tax
•the Editor of The Week:
lir—Taking The Colonist's figures
correct, there are other inferences
|ides those in their paragraph on
of  April.    They  say   that  the
|ount paid—$2,000,000 in a year—
Iws that the exclusion tax does not
Eude."   ->ut the inference I would
|w is:    The amount paid is  evi-
wpe of the need of Chinese labor,
tors were the chief witnesses who
lid their trade interfered with, and
ced the tax to be imposed, but
In told the Japs have greatly dis-
[rited thc Chinese and the white
in this trade.    Further, it was
fccted  that  keeping  out   Chinese
lid  encourage    women    domestic
lice in the cities, but this expecta-
lin has ended in complete failure,
Mr.   Laurier,  instead  of  being
id of the amount of the tax, has
lonfess its failure.
i have  more  than  once,  in   Vic-
papers,  called attention  to the
ng done  to  farmers in  the pro-
particularly   about   Duncans,
re  a  superior  class  of  farmers
Ibought lands and employed Chin-
1 labor.     These    farmers    cannot
jthe wages  which  would  induce
lese to go there to work.   When
1 farmers   settled   in   the   district,
lamen  were  most  useful.    They
led  steadily at  clearing land  as
Ither workman works.    Whether
because farmers are not given
jemonstrate or because they rely
Inuch on our Victoria newspapers
Ithey had come to believe it was
\se to protest, the farmers have
at any of their meetings, pass-
l-'solutions on this subject. How-
things  look   brighter  now;    I
at the first meeting of farmers
will pass a resolution in  favor
Jduction of the Chinese head tax.
lyone knows they all want Chin-
labor, but this is not enough.
\e hundred ladies of tlieir own
rd petitioned thc Board of Trade
lie subject, every man you speak
yants  them  to  come  in;   every
-hold of the middle and upper
(shall   I  call  them)   pays   for
ese   service   double   what   they
[before Mr. Laurier legislated on
pubject;  and  very  many  people
nail   means   can   hire   no   help,
by the month or by the day.
Ipcople ol Victoria refuse to acidic law and instead of assisting
lep the Chinese out they rather
Ime  those  who  come  in  in  an
ll   way.    Mr.   Laurier   will   do'
to amend the law and the amend-
will surely be in the way of re-
»n.    Merely   reduction   of   the
[tax   may   not   be   the   wisest

Thc Chinese are manageable;

labor   as   an   inheritance.     Our

Ion of trade unionists is absurd,

Ah, Muther, Muther, sure ye'U mind the
madness av it all!
Ye'll mind I had no shmile for him, no
eye for him at all!
Och,  Muther,  I  was mad wld  love  for
laughln' Kindree Tim;
I'd given up me sobbin' lips and all me
heart to him!
And Shamus was a dour man;
And, och, he seemed a sour man;
"And yon," says I; when first I sent him
on his way again,
Wid  all  hls  sad and  patient  eyes  so
clouded up wid pain—
"Faith, yon's a cold man
And yon's an old man;
And   I'm   for    warrum   and    laughln' j
ways—and I'm for lovin' Tim!"
The way wld life and lovin', sure, ye'll
niver learn at school;
It seldom goes be ralson and it niver
goes by rule!
'Twas half wid pity, Muther, half wld
pique at struttin' Tim,
I let dour Shamus spake the world that
bound me up wid him.
Widout a thrill av rapture and widout
a throb av hope,
I took him for me wedded mate—him,
solemn as a Pope;
Ay, him widout a chune or laugh, and
wid his solemn way.
He  took  me  from  ye,  Muther,  and  off
across the bay—
And, och, the bitther tears
And the thought av empty years—
And  sobbin'   that  I'd  rather die  than
face another day!
I've borne him chllder', Muther, and I've,
been an honest wife;
We've had our thrials together, faith; j
our ups and downs wid life.
I've minded what ye tolt me, Muther—
kept me throubles still
And bent me way to Shamus' an,d made
his wish me will—
But here's the wonder av It! Muther,
Muther, tell me why
The midday love grows stronger when
the mornin' love must die—
The solemn love grows dearer when the
madder  love  goes by?
For here I'm waltln' like a gurl to hear
me Shamus call;
Ay, here I'm waltln' for the man who's
now me all In all,
And when I see him throubled, sure, it
cuts me like a knife—
And, faith, it's not a sad world, *
And sure it's not a mad world;
For I love him, Muther, Muther, och, I
love him more than life!

At the City Gate
'Twas at the city gate we met;
A blazing sun had flung
On flashing spire and minaret
Banners of blood that hung,
Like brazen streamers in the wind
That whipped a flaming sea, -,
And drooped not there, nor fell behind,
But stretched from you to me.
The streets a million footfalls held:
Yet only one I knew.
The burdened heat of voices swelled:
I heard the cry of you.
And, lo, the heavy, waiting years !
Fell from me, as you came,
And all the bitterness and tears
Were shadows in a dream.
The city sounds throbbed faint, remote,
Like plaintive echoes thrill,
The dim call of a bird's lone note
Came from a silent hill.
Then, braggart  monster,  Trutli  stalked
near,
As when night clouds the day
With veiled scoff at hearts that fear,
And scourged our love away.
The light of God was not upon
The earth or mocking sea,
When you went back to Babylon,
I—to Gethsemane.
—Margaret  O'Grady,  ln The  Canadian Magazine for April.
The greatest opportunity that has
ever come to the people of Victoria
to buy high class clothing, hats and
furnishings, at a fraction of their real
value, is that opened by the B. Williams & Co.'s going-out-of-business
sale.
The high class stock carried by this
firm is too well known to the people
of this city and surrounding country
to need any other recommendation.
While the firm expected a ready response to the announcements of this
sale the rush has been far beyond
their expectations, but they have a j
large staff of competent, obliging and
experienced salesmen who are seeing
that everybody who gains admission j
to the store are having their wants
properly and satisfactorily attended
to. It becomes necessary at times
to lock the doors to prevent the
store from becoming overcrowded
and uncomfortable, as the firm is determined that the shopping done at
this sale shall be satisfactory.
The bargains being offered are unprecedented.
The sale hours are:—9.30 a.m. to
1 p.m.; 2.30 p.m. to 6 p.m.; evenings, 7.30 p.m. to 9.00 p.m.
This stock must be cleared by May
ist, when J. N. Harvey, Limited, will
take possession of the premises. See
price list, on last page.
A "Scotch" Verdict
A group of Scottish lawyers were
met convivially at an Ayrshire inn one
cold evening. The conversation turned
upon  pronunciations.
"Now, I," said one of the barristers,
"always say neether, while John, here,
says nyther.   What do you say, Sandy?"
The hot tipple had made Sandy doze,
and at the sudden question he aroused
and replied—"I?   Oh,  I say whuskey."
Charity
"Oh! Lady Jane, you must take some
tickets for a charity dance I'm help

"And  what's lt for?"
"Oh! er—the—er — indigent' something or other—and the duchess ls
bringing a party, and we've got the

"Delighted, I'm sure. One's always
ready to help a really good cause."
Courteous Highwayman
"You  don't  mean  to   say  you  would
accept this old timepiece?" faltered the
man who was being held up.    "Why, It
Is  only  an  apology  for a watch."
"That's all right, friend," laughed
the bold highwayman, "I'll accept the
apology."

Clerk's £300 "Sweep"
To win a sweepstake prize of £300,
and to be debarred by the rules of
his employers from accepting it, was
the fortune of a clerk in the Bank
of Liverpool. No gambling or any
racing event is allowed by the directors of this institution. The directors and officials having satisfied
themselves that the rule was not
known to the lucky clerk, determined
like good sportsmen, that he should
not lose. They therefore told him
that he must return the £300 to the
sweepstake committee, and they they
put their hands into their own pockets
and made up a similar sum, and presented it to the clerk.
Diamonds on Show
A collection of diamonds worth two
million pounds is being lent by the
De Beers Consolidated Mines, Ltd.,
for exhibition at the Festival of Empire at the Crystal Palace. The exhibit will be the largest and finest
collection of diamonds ever seen in
England, and every one of the Kim-
berley mines of the well-known company will contribute specimens. To
protect such a wonderful exhibit a
special steel safe is being built, of
which the construction is a close
secret. It is regarded as quite burglar-proof, which is saying a great
deal in these days of chemical and
other appliances as aids to safe-
breaking. The same firm's exhibition
showing the work of diamond mining in actual progress will be an admirable supplement to this collection.
Mystery of a "Whistler"
A picture, supposed to represent
Whistler caricaturing himself, and
painting three pictures at once, has
been printed by.the "Graphic." The
illustration was Seen by Mr. Charles
H. E. Brookfield, actor, author, playwright, and recognized by him as his
own work! The picture represents
Whistler painting'* three portraits of
the late Lady Meux—one of the portraits being the "sables" picture which
has never been found. Mr. Brookfield
said that it must have been fifteen
years ago that he drew the caricature
for Lady Meux. She took it to
Whistler, and it was probably found
among his effects and regarded as his
work. Whistler is represented
stretching halfway across his studio
with three immensely long paint
brushes in his right hand.
Launch of Latest Dreadnought
The Dreadnought battleship Monarch, the Tyne's largest warship, was
successfully launched from the Els-
wick shipyard of Messrs. Armstrong,
Whitworth, and 1C0., on Thursday
afternoon, March 30, by Mrs. Lewis
Harcourt, the wife of Mr. Lewis
Harcourt, M.P., the Colonial Secretary. The vessel made a world's re-
ocrd for battleships in respect, of her
forward state at the time of launching, having her boilers, funnels, and
bridges installed, and a large portion
of her armour on, whereas usually
battleships are launched minus such
equipment. The Monarch has a displacement of over 23,000 tons. Her
length is 581 feet, breadth 88}4 feet,
draught 271/1 feet, and horse-power
27,000, to produce a speed of twenty-
one knots. The main armament consists of ten 13.5 inch guns, mounted in
pairs on the middle line of the ship.
All can be used on either broadside,
and four ahead and four astern. This
compares with eight 12-inch guns on
a Dreadnought and gives a broadside
of 12,500 lbs., compared with 6,800
lb. on the latter vessel. She will also
mount sixteen 4-inch guns. The armour at the thickest part will be
twelve inches deep. She will be propelled by turbine engines. Speaking
after the launch Sir Andrew Noble
said the launching displacement was
11,500 tons. This vessel was the
forty-third warship built for the Admiralty by his firm.
"Kits Coty House"
In a forthcoming land sale is included the famous Kentish cromlech
known as "Ki.j Coty House." This
relic is supposed to be of greater antiquity than Stonehenge, and to have
been erected not later than 1800 or
2000 years before Christ. Several
Kentish historians sp'eak of the monument as being the burial place of
"Catigern," the British prince who
was slain in single combat with Horsa
in a battle fought between the Britons
and Saxons at Aylesford, A. D. 455,
when the Britons were victorious.
"Kits Coty House" which is said to be
in a remarkably good state of preservation, is scheduled under the Ancient Monuments Protection Act of
1882.
CANADA'S LOYALTY
Lord   Strathcona,  the   High  Commissioner  for  Canada, presided at  a
lecture on Canada, given by Miss Ag-
1 ncs Deans Cameron at the Imperial
: Institute.   The Duke and Duchess of
i Connaught    and    Princess    Patricia,
Princess  Louise,  Duchess of Argyll,
and the  Duke of  Argyll, the  Landgrave of Hesse, and the Hon. J.  H.
Turner   (Agent-General   for   British
Columbia),  were  among those  pres-
! ent.    Miss  Cameron,  who  has  been
1 further north than any other Englishwoman, said, in the course of her address that she had once been asked
whether Canada was loyal  to England.    Her  reply was:  "No,  Canada
is loyal to the British Empire.    Let
England look to it that she also is
loyal to the Empire."   Over here she
had heard the phrase "disintegration
of the Empire"; but in the Dominion
anyone using it seriously would be
considered disloyal. Those who felt
alarmed at what they called "the
Americanization of Canada," did not
realise the pride Canadians felt in belonging to the greatest of Empires.
Canadians would have nothing to gain
by joining the Republic, which she
was destined to surpass in wealth and
population as she did in extent of territory.	
THE   BRITISH   PACIFIC   COAL
COMPANY TO OPERATE ON
LARGE SCALE AT SKIDGATE INLET
The British Pacific Coal Company,
with a capitalization of $1,500,000, has
placed upon the market a most attractive proposition.
The property, 8,320 acres or thereby, is situate on Skidgate Inlet, where
there is one of the finest harbors on
the Pacific Coast.
With unequalled transportation facilities and a ready market at Prince
Rupert—only 80 miles distant—the
Company will, to a large extent control the coal market, since the coal
which has been found on their property to the extent of 36,000,000 tons
is the finest quality of anthracite
averaging 83 per cent, fixed carbon
as against 43-53 per cent., the average of the bituminous coal mined
from the various mines in British .Columbia.
Quite a number of eminent geologists have reported most favourable
on the property controlled by the
British Pacific Coal Company, including the late Dr. Dawson, probably
one of the most noted mining experts of recent times;
Mr. Alex. Faulds, M.E., M.Inst.
M.E., the well known mining engineer, last year, after a careful examination of the property pronounced it to be one of the best .coal fields
on the Pacific Coast.
Mr. Faulds has detailed certain
work which will incur an expenditure
of about $50,000, based on which he
estimates a daily output of 200 tons
daily, developing to 1,000 tons a day.
With a view to raising the necessary funds for this development the
Trustee, T. R. Morrow, with offices
at 617 Trounce Avenue, Victoria, has
put upon the market the first block
of shares to be sold at 25 cents per
share. These shares have a par
value of $1.00 each, are fully paid up
and non-assessable.
It is now only a matter of a few
days until the first block purchasable
at 25 cents a share will be absorbed,
and as we understand the Company
intend commencing operations early
in May, the next block to be offered
will either be at 35 or 50 cents per
share.
That Prince Rupert is going to be
a great city goes without saying, as,
judged by the progress it has made
during the last few years, and with
the advent of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, making its terminus at
that City, and the coal being of such
excellent quality the Company has
certainly a bright future before it.

THE WEEK, SATUKDAY, APRIL 22,1911
have obtained from the Census and Statistics Branch, I thought it
best to refer the matter to you, and should be glad if you would
reply to the inquiry made",
Accordingly the following letter has been sent to the Editor of
the Canadian Gazette:
"Dear Sir,--In reply to your letter of the 2nd inst. (to Dr. Saunders) your correspondent does not indicate very precisely the source
of his statistics as to the production and exports of Canadian wheat,
but according to the figures published by the Canadian Department
of Trade and Commerce he appears rather to have underestimated
the average production and to have overestimated the average exports. These figures are, as regards production, supplied by the
provincial governments, and in the three earlier years they do not
include the province of Quebec, nor in 1905 that of British
Columbia.
"Being responsible only for the Dominion statistics I would
prefer to limit attention to the annual estimates of production for
the whole of Canada (British Columbia excepted) as published by
the Dominion Government for lhe three years 1908, 1909 and 1910:
The following are the actual data as to the production of wheat in
Canada and the imports and exports of wheat and flour for the fiscal
years 1908-09, 1909-10 and 1910-11:
Schedule 1908-09       1909-10       1910-11
Bushels     Bushels        Bushels
Estimated production  112,434,000 166,744,000 149,989,600
Imports for home consumption
of wheat and flour       224,000       200,000       336,000*
112,658,000 166,944,000 150,325,600
Exports of wheat and flour ... 57,104,000   63,785,000 61,000,000*
Balance retained for home

Seed  13,563,000   16,266,000 18,813,000
41,991,000   86,893,000   70,512,600
Consumption at 6.24 bush.
per head   44,833,000   46,736,000   48,578,000
Deficiency and surplus  -2,842,000   40,157,000   21,934,600
*Estimated.
In the foregoing statement the requirements for seed are reckoned at the average rate of 1.75 bushel per acre upon the acreage of
the following year, i. e., 7,750,400 in 1909, 9,294,800 in 1910 and
10,750,000 estimated for 1911.
"The consumption of wheat per head in Canada is admittedly
high. Some authorities have placed it at 6.70 bushels. Figures I
collected two years ago indicated 5.80 bushels as the per capita consumption in the Northwest provinces . The estimate of 6.24 bushels,
above used, is based upon the statistics of production of the Census
of 1901 and upon the imports and exports of that year, the population of Canada being estimated as 7,184,744 in 1908-09, 7,489,781 in
1909-10 and 7,784,900 in 1910-11.
The table shows a deficiency for 1908 which would have to be
made good from the stocks held over from 1907, of which there is no
record. In 1909 a proportion of the surplus would be required to
replenish depleted stocks in the elevators and mills; and in this connection it will be noticed from the table that while the production of
1909-10 is 54,000,000 bushels in excess of 1908-09 the export is only
about 7,000,000 more.
"It may be reckoned that about 5 p. c. of the total production,
as above estimated, should be deducted owing to losses in cleaning,
etc., and if we put the average losses from frosted and other grain
used for feeding at 3 p. c, a total reduction of 8 p. c. reduces the
above surpluses by 13,340,000 bushels or to 26,817,000 bushels in
1909-10 and by 11,999,000 bushels or to 9,936,000 bushels in 1910-11.
"In the spring of each of the last two years data have been collected from agricultural correspondents as to the amount of the previous, year's crop then remaining in the hands of farmers. These
showed that of the crop of 112,434,000 bushels in 1908-09, 20.23 p. c.
or 22,747,000 bushels remained in farmers' hands at the end of February, 1909; ancl similarly that of the crop of 166,744,000 bushels in
1909-10 18.28 p. c. or 30,484,000 bushels were in farmers' hands on
March 31, 1910. The Weekly Report of the Department of Trade
and Commerce gives the total quantity of wheat in store at the terminal and eastern transfer elevators for the week ended February
24, 1911 as 9,931,062 bushels, figures whicii happen to agree rather
closely with the reduced surplus of 9,936,000 bushels above
indicated.
"The whole question—one that has been raised on previous occasions—is difficult, and with the data available it is not possible to
arrive at very certain conclusions. The estimates of the wheat crop,
as published by this Office, are based upon returns of reliable agricultural correspondents, and any tendency to exaggeration or to too
sanguine estimates is carefully guarded against. At the same time
the figures published are only estimates and have not the authority
of actual statistics. Such statistics will be available upon completion of the results of the forthcoming Census on June ist next, when
records of area and of yield wil be taken for every farm throughout
Canada.

RECIPROCITY MAY DIVIDE THE DOMINION
Hon. R. P. Roblin, Premier of Manitoba, arrived in Toronto recently and on being interviewed regarding the feeling towards reciprocity in his province, said:
"Speaking generally, the opponents of the reciprocity pact in
Manitoba have made no effort to counteract the strenuous exertions
of those who seemingly have been inspired to action in its favor,
for the reason that many doubt that it will ever be carried into
effect.   There are a good many who are advising no action on the
Government; and that, if it ever goes into operation, it will be such
a disappointment, such a costly experiment to the poor unfortunates who have been misled and deceived, that the overthrow and
defeat of the Laurier Government will be so easy that there will
hardly be a contest at all.   "That view of the case is held, I may say,
by men who believe that the Laurier Government should be overthrown on its general administration, but who are satisfied that
with the reciprocity pact in effect the overthrow would be assured.
"My own opinion, Mr. Roblin continued, "is that reciprocity
will divide Canada into an east and west; it will produce a condi-
I tion of things that will destroy the work that bas been prosecuted
i towards binding the scattered provinces together in interprovincial
i trade ever since confederation."
Sees Disastrous Results
After pointing out that reciprocity would mean the certain
j wrecking of mixed farming in Manitoba, where this business is just
j beginning to be developed, Mr. Roblin went on:
"I make the statement that reciprocity will not only not benefit
;the people of Manitoba, but that it will work most serious injury
Sand financial loss, with more certainty and conviction than any
J statement I have ever made on any other public question. I can-
|not undertake even to estimate—it is too serious to do so—its final
[•effects upon Confederation and upon our relations with the Motherland."
Mr. Roblin has come east purely on a pleasure trip and left
jiearly this morning for Picton, Ontario, where he will spend Easter
[with his father at the old family home.
Manufacturers Standing Pat
"We have not retracted the statement drafted at the regular
lexecutive council meeting held in this city on February 16 last, and
|I have not heard of any attempt to retract it."
Mr. H. D. Scully, assistant secretary of the Toronto branch of
lthe Canadian Manufacturers' Association, made this statement
Iwhen asked if there was any tendency on the part of Toronto manufacturers to alter their attitude toward the reciprocity agreement.
"The next meeting of the executive," said Mr. Scully, "will be
■field on April 20. No retraction of the February statement could be
(made until that date, even if they did desire to retract or alter it,
ind there is not the slightest disposition to do so."
THE COMMON STOCK OF THE C .N. R. COMING
It is stated that an opportunity will shortly be given of obtaining an interest in the ordinary shares of the Canadian Northern
ly., which have not yet been offered to the public.
A prospectus will shortly be issued on the new Canadian
iNorthern debentures, and an apparently official statement issued
pxplains that holders of these 5 per cent, income charge convertible
jlebentures will be entitled to exchange into ordinary shares, the
fight extending until January, 1919.
The ordinary capital amounts to $55,000,000 in $100 shares,
■/hich has been privately held, none being offered to the public as
ye{ No dividend has been paid, but the surplus profits of recent
rears from railway operations and the sale of certain land holdings
limoijnted to"£3,500,000. It has been the practice to utilize this
jurplus for improving and extending the property. The convertible
|tock to be offered ranks as a mortgage charge immediately after
lhe 4 per cent, perpetual consolidated debenture stock.
STRIKE OF GALENA
At Paget's camp, about twenty-three miles down the river
Irom Hazelton, a find of galena ore is reported in one of the railway
Juts of the Skeena. Considerable excitement has been created in
[h nearby construction camps.
Assays of ore from the new strike on the Duke claim of the
Kilver Cup group returned values of 180 ounces to silver and 53 per
lent, lead, or $136.21 at the present commercial prices of those
metals. This is nearly three ancl a half ounces of silver to the unit
If percentage of lead.
THE G. T. P. TO BUILD 140 NEW STATIONS
Last year the Canadian Pacific R. R. company established forty
lliriving townsites along its new branch lines in Manitoba, Sas-
latchewan and Alberta. This record will be eclipsed this year,
Jowever, and it is expected that at least fifty new towns will be es-
ablished in the West along the lines of this company. The open-
ig of this campaign of extension is indicated in the announcement
lecently made by the assistant land commissioner, J. L. Doupe, to
■he effect that lots in five townsites will be offered for sale early
lext month, on the Regina-Colonsay-Prince Albert branch, the re-
Ipective points being Liberty, Stalwart, Imperial, Amazon and
fimpson.
The active work of the Grand Trunk railway, along the lines
idicated above, will greatly exceed that of the C. P. R.   E. J.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 22,1911
Chamberlin, vice-president of the G. T. P., stated in AVinnipeg last
week, that the company had recently purchased materials fpr the
erection of a total of one hundred and forty new railway stations.
There have been numerous inquiries from points in.the West
with reference to the erection of these buildings. Replying to a
question on the subject, Mr. Chamberlin said the difficulty in connection with the erection of these structures was that of securing a
sufficient number of carpenters. Last year a large force was employed and as many buildings as could be built were erected along
the lines in the prairie provinces.
This year, it is believed, it will be possible to do better than in
1910, and it is hoped that by the time the winter comes all, or practically all of the stations on the list will be in use.
The new buildings will be put up by the company by the use of
day labor. Xo contracts will be let, all the work being done under
the direction of the company direct. Last year there was some difficulty in securing materials for the depots, as some of the lumber
that was to be used was burned in the great conflagration in the
Rainy River district last spring. This year it is hoped no such
catastrophe will occur, and every effort will be made to provide the
s-ettlers along the line with the conveniences of a building for the
transaction of their business.
Of the new depots about one dozen will be located on the new
Regina and Yorkton branches. There will be fifteen on the line
running to the east from Prince Rupert, a station being located
every seven iniles. The balance will be placed along the main line
of the company in the three prairie provinces.
All the stations will be built on a standard known as "A" plan.
This shows a neat building with provision for the residence of the
agent and for the handling of the usual passenger and1 express
business, etc.

A RICH STRIKE
A lead of high-grade ore was struck in the Big Tunnel on
Tuesday, March nth. The ore is a little over 1,800 feet from the
portal of the tunnel and 818 feet below the surface of the Defiance
claim. The lead just struck is highly mineralized with ore tbat is
worth more than $100.00 a ton. The ore resembles that of the
Providence mine. This strike is the most important mining event
that has occurred in the district for years. It proves that the high-
grade ores of the Boundary go down, and will tend to produce
°reater mining activity in the mountains that surround Greenwood.

/," he continued, "yer'll take a
picture of her, won't yer? Make
est picture yer ever made in yer
hy?" asked Lucy. "Do you
it for your best girl?"
1.
"0 gee, I ain't got no best girl.
She waited and waited till she was
sick and tired of waitin' and so she—"
Here Bill found some straws in the
mare's mane which needed immediate
removal.
"O Bill, where's Bill Knapp?"
shouted somebody.
"Excuse me a minute, Miss," said
Bill, as he hurried off.
Lucy leaned against the stable wall.
"So it is  Bill," she said to herself.
She recalled the days when he used
to call her Fariy on account of her
ethereal appearance. She remembered how he asked her to wait for
him, for he was igoing to win a
fortune with his horses. She remembered the weary waiting and the races
that were lost instead of won. Then
people said Bill would never have a
cent and it all seemed so hopeless.
So she had given him up but had not
forgotten, while other lovers sought
her hand, only to be refused. Her
parents died, and she faced the world
alone, where she soon found that
great success comes only to the few.
She stroked the mare's soft nose.
"Good Fairy," she whispered, "Good
Fairy, you were named after me."
When Bill' returned, she enquired
eagerly if Good Fairy was running
that day.
"Sure she is, she's in the third race.
She's goin' ter win; don't say nothin' but it's her chance. She ain't
showed up yet, but she's ready and
she's goin' ter fool 'em all. Her
chance has come, and if she makes
good I'll be out of debt. If I only
had a hundred dollars I'd make a
fortune. She'll be thirty or forty to
one, and she'll win breezin'."
"I've got a few dollars to bet with
today," faltered Lucy.
"Put it on Good Fairy, by gums,
girl, put it on Good Fairy!" most
screamed the excited Bill. "Don't
say a word, but put it on Fairy.''
"We're goin' ter lay up about
third," he explained, "till we turn into the home stretch, and then—-"
"Mr. Knapp," said Lucy, "I want
to make one condition, and that is:
if Good Fairy wins, you share my
winnings with me."
"O go on now, Lady, I couldn't
thick of doin' that," replied Bill,
blushing.
"Then I won't bet," replied Lucy
firmly.
"Yer must, Miss, yer must play
Fairy," he implored. "I'll promise
yer anythin' yer like, for she'll win
sure, I know she will."
"Very well then, Mr. Knapp, that's
a bargain. I play Fairy, and we
share the winnings."
The grandstand was crowded,
everybody smiling and excited, for
two favourites had won. The bugle
sounded for the third race, the big
race of thc day. Everybody was dis
cussing the merits and chances of
their choice, but Good Fairy's' name
was not mentioned.
Lucy Chambers stood alone among
the motley crowd, her heart beating
to suffocation. She had put $50 on
Good Fairy. The hard-earned savings of five years, put by in case
of sickness. A thousand emotions
careered madly through her brain.
Could Fairy do it? Nobody seemed
to think she had a chance. Bill was
so sure, but then he always was and
so often lost. She had staked her
happiness on chance before, and lost.
Would she lose again?
"Wouldn't be surprised to see some
bloomin' long shot come home this
time," sais a hoarse voice beside her.
"Two favourites has just won."
"Here they come! Here they
come!" Thc spirited contenders for
the third race walked demurely and
daintily from the paddock and pranced
lightly by the grandstand. One, two,
three, four—they came in order. Then
Five, a bright chestnut with starred
forehead, ridden by a little jockey
in  yellow  colours.
" Good Fairy, Five," whispered
Lucy.   "Oh Fairy, you must win!"
Five minutes bf the Ipng-drawn
agony at the post, and "they're off!"
Four furlongs to go and the favourite leads.
"Who's that layin' up third?"
shouted someone among the crowd.
The uproad became deafening as
the   field   rounded   into   the   home
stretch. On they came, now three
of them abreast in the lead.
Lucy stared with fixed and fascinated gaze on the patch of yellow
tearing along beside the red and the
blue. Then it seemed as if the yellow got bigger and bigger till then,
right in front of all came a little
chestnut mare with a white star on
her forehead.
"Good Fairy! Good Fairy!" yelled
the crowd. "By James, but look at
her a-comin'!"
Luck closed her eyes. Click! Click,
went the numbers up on the board.
She looked and (there, under first
place was the number Five. As she
gazed, it seemed to grow suddenly
to an enormous size and come to
hit her in the face.
"What's the matter, Miss?" said a
rough, but kind voice, while a strong
arm grasped lier's to prevent her
from falling. "Did yer lose yer
money?"
"No," grasped Lucy, "but I—had
$50 on Good Fairy."
"By gums, and she was forty to
one!" exclaimed the man, in amazement.
Bill Knapp was standing with a
radiant face by his horse's stall when
T *
Lucy came.
"Didn't I say she'd wifl?" he cried.
"Mr. Knapp," said Lucy, trying to
steady the tremble in her voice. "I
have something to shpw you and I
don't want anybody else to see."
"Dodge right into Fairy's stall,
Miss," said Bill. "She won't hurt
you."
In a corner of the mare's loose box,
Lucy counted out her roll of money
before the astonished Bill.
"Two thousand plunks!" he ejaculated. "I ain't a goin' ter take half
of all that."
"Bill," faltered Lucy, "I know I
must have changed an awful lot
since "
And Good Fairy, who had not belied her name, wondered why her
master took no notice when she
nibbled his coat for twenty minutes.
So she retired to the opposite corner to ruminate, possibly on the
third race.

yet arrived. The financial corpor
ations and the professional politicians are having their innings, and
the Montreal Witness is not strong
enough to stem the tide even in its
own city because it" lacks the
genius to adapt itself to the requirements of the age.
PERFORATION
It seems that after all there was
something wrong with the Smith's
Hill Reservoir, although it has
taken the City Council two years
to locate the trouble. It now turns
out that there are eighty-six perforations in the floor, of whicii
three are major, and eighty-three
minor. Tlie holes are being
plugged, and the escape of water
is sensibly diminishing. The perforations are admitted to be due to
defective workmanship, and it
may uot even now be too late to
find out who is responsible. One
thing is certain that the repairs being made are only temporary, and
tliat preparations should be made
for such permanent repairs as are
necessary at the earliest possible
moment. Meanwhile, it is a matter for congratulation that there is
no further agitation for the employment of Mr. W. L. Adams.
A QUESTION OF FANNING
It would really seem as if Victoria might become a baseball city.
The advent of Manager Wattelet's
team seems to have aroused considerable excitement to judge from
>fhe crowds which throng Broad
street to study the bulletins of the
game as they appear in the windows of tlie Colonist and Times.
One wonders first of all that so
many people would gather to await
A fence of this kind only 16 to 23c. per running foot. Shipped in rolls. Anyone can put
it on the posts without special tools. We were the originators of this fence. Have sold

patiently the arrival of eacli telegraphic message, and to watch the
figures steadily grow on the diagram from the first innings to the
ninth. But one wonders still more
why such enthusiastic votaries of
the ganie do not spend the afternoon at the Eoyal Athletic Park
and SEE the fun. In such a prosperous city as Victoria it -cannot
be that anyone lacks the necessary
trifle to pay the admission fee, and
yet The Week can vouch for the
fact that numbers of young meu
spend the whole afternoon round
the bulletin board. The whole subject of baseball is replete with interest ; it is one on whicli no tenderfoot is competent to speak, and
one which no Englishman would
ever understand; but he would be
blind not to realise that the game
has a strong hold on the public and
that no other game arouses quite
so much enthusiasm of a vociferous kind. If we are to have baseball let us have the best there is,
and let every fair-minded man acknowledge that the team which
Manager Wattelet has got together
is rendering an excellent account
of itself.

NOT SMART ENOUGH
Will the readers of The Week
kindly notice that Mr. A. J.
Brace's manifesto as published in
The Colonist commences as follows:
"Dominion of Canada, Province of
British Columbia, County of
Victoria.
"In the matter of the article appearing in the "Citizen" newspaper of the 12th January,
1911."
And goes on to say:
"2. Either on the last Friday
in January or the first Friday in
February last I was at my home
at 612 David street in the said
City of Victoria:"
In other words, the lying
article appeared in The Citizen three weeks before the incident occured on which Mr. Brace
relies for his justification. The
Colonist did not notice the inconsistency !

MUSIC AND THE STAGE
(Continued from Page 3)
est choral compositions in the whole
range of ancient and modern music.
The tour  will  be  specially memor-
The works to be performed by the
Choir will include many of the great-
able by reason of the fact that Dr.
Harriss has contracted, at enormous
expense, with England's greatest
composer, Sir Edward Elgar, to come
out* with the Choir and personally
conduct his master-piece, "The Dream
of Gerontius," and his other great
work, "The Kingdom," and has also
made arrangements for several of the
best known conductors in the United
States to appear with their orchestras
in conjunction with the Choir. Thus,
at Chicago, the Theodore Thomas
orchestra will combine with the Choir,
and in Cincinnatti, Minneapolis, and
other great centres notable orchestras will take their part.
Dr. Coward, who will be the general conductor for the whole tour,
is admittedly the world's greatest
choruSsjnaster. As such he has been
acclaimed throughout Germany by the
leading critics and musicians, composers and leading musical authorities everywhere, having joined in the
chorus of praise which greeted his
tour throughout the German Empire
with the Sheffield Choir in 1906.
Klaw-Erlanger and Shuberts to
Combine
By an arrangement which has been
completed between Messrs. Klaw and
Erlanger and the Shuberts, it is
learned the long-standing war in
booking theatrical attractions which
has been waged between these two
concerns is at an end.
According to the story told on
Broadway, Marc Klaw completed the
arrangements by whicii Klaw and Erlanger and the Shuberts will operate
together. Klaw sailed for Europe two
weeks ago. There he saw Charles
Frohman. It is understood that Frohman agreed to the combination with
the Shuberts. Thereupon Klaw got
busy with the cable, and the result
was a deal by which the Klaw and
Erlanger theatrical syndicate will consolidate with the Shuberts.
Chevalier Coming
Arrangements have now been definitely completed by which Albert
Chevalier, the greatest character actor
in the world, and England's highest
salaried artist, will visit Western
Canada under the direction of Frederic Shipman. The tour, which will
be a very limited one, will open at the
Walker Theatre, Winnipeg, on May
22nd, and will extend to Vancouver,
and Victoria. Chevalier's coming may be regarded as a distinct
event. Foremost among English-
speaking character actors, incomparable as a delineator of coster and cockney types, he occupies a position peculiarly and positively his own. Thc
interest already shown and the great
number of letters received by the
management since the first announcement of Chevalier's prospective tour,
satisfactorily demonstrate to Mr.
Shipman that he is correct in his contention that nowhere in the English-
speaking world will the people respond more readily for the great artist
than in the Canadian west.

fcany new ideas in the arrangement
~[>laits and folds are constantly ap-
|.ing. A wide inverted plait at the
of the skirt instead of the
light panel left open from about
(knees is seen in both cloth and
'skirts. The skirts with this plait
tas straight as ever, but with this
less the ugly lines are done away
T. The panel skirts are not smart

ate and deck every material, linen as
well as chiffon and silk.
Surplice lines are also in evidence
on the simplest frocks, as well as for
party gowns. The material is a deep
V beneath a yoke of lace or chiffon,
is always becoming, while if this design gives too plain an effect for a
slender figure a fall of lace over the
surplice, either on one side or both
sides, will at once render the style a
becoming on-e. Wherever possible on
the new bodice there seems to be a
touch of sheer lace or ruching. Cream
colored maline is a favorite lace, and
since this lace is fairly expensive it
can be combined with silk net of the
seem to be the favorite materials for
young girls' frocks this spring. These
voiles will also be seen in great numbers among the summer gowns, for
the material is delightfully light in
weight and will wash as well as any
cotton fabric. In white this voile is
especially pretty, while it is attractive
in all the pale as well as the darker
colors. Summer gowns are made up
without linings, but afternoon dresses
of voile for this time of year are given
foundations of softest silk or satin.
Many gowns are also draped in voile
instead of the less durable marquisette
or chiffon. For separate waists the
very cheapest qualities of cotton voile
make up extremely well and will be
found to last much longer than sheer
lingerie bodices.
* *... *
A three-piece costume in rajah or
voile combined with foulard makes a
serviceable dress always. It is well,
if the gown is really built on simple
lines, for waist and skirt to be separate, so that the gown may at one time
appear as a pretty shirt waist and
dress and again, worn with a lingerie
bodice, be a convenient suit for the
cooler days. There are many new designs among foulard silks which are
attractively youthful, and a girl who
stays late in the city or is to spend
her summer in travel must surely be
provided with a gown of this delightfully cool material, which wears
splendidly and looks well under all
circumstances.
Stripes are more in vogue than
either polka dots or figured patterns.
There is a bright blue foulard with a
hairline stripe' of white which is extremely pretty, and there are numerous foulards of varied stripes, all of
which are sufficiently youthful. There
are many check and striped silks in
bright colorings which make charmingly pretty afternoon dresses and are
especially to be recommended as foundations for voile or marquisette.
* *   *
This marquisette which is so popular is a quite delightful material, since
it is every bit as soft and sheer as
chiffon, yet wears admirably. It is to
be had in every shade from delicate
coral pink to brilliant cerise—the fashionable red of the moment.
Marquisette and voile are also combined with cloth. One smart little
.three-piece costume was fashioned
with the gown of voile trimmed with
bands of cloth, of which the jacket
was also formed. Foulard trimmed
with bands of. silk, with a jacket of
the silk trimmed with revers, cuffs and
lining of foulard, was a favorite combination last year, and is as much in
favor as before in the afternoon costumes for the school and college
undergraduate. Tl.e- jackets are all
quite short, cut with the fashionable
square lines, and are not trimmed nor
braided as are Hie same style of jacket for older persons. These little
coats open far down in front and show
wide revers, with generally a sailor
collar in back. The sleeves are long
in the majority of modeis.
* *   *
The fashions of the moment seem
to be especially designed for young
girls, for to none other are the
straight narrow skirts, the high round
waist lines, the full frill about the
throat and also the bright colors so
becoming as to the girl graduate.
•I*   #   j*.
Ire arc no absolutely plain skirts
rear. There are overskirts and \
J, folds of the material or wide,
■ht flounces, and on part frocks
[are bands of lace and occasion-
lestoons of flowers holding thc
J chiffon or net. The combining
lo or more different textures in
fie gown necessarily means that
kirt cannot be really plain, for
(raped material has always to bc
fed off in some way, either with
Ir ribbon or a band of hemstitch-
JFolds of satin adorn all gowns
lthe plainest to the most elabor-
same tint and mesh, thus greatly reducing thc cost of thc trimming. Maline lace is especially pretty, since of
simple design, for trimming the costumes of. the school girl.
Cluny lace is seen on some of the
net tunics covering undcrgowns of
satin, and if used in small quantity
this Cluny is not out of keeping. Baby
Irish in narrow insertions for yoke,
collar and cuffs is as popular as ever,
hut plain net had better be employed
than machine made Irish.

remedy for Eczema, Psoriasis, and all
other forms of skin diseases, it is now
known that there is no other wash,
even those used by the beauty specialists, that can compare with this
mild liquid for cleansing the skin of
pimples, blackheads, rash, and all
other similar skin affections.
For this reason alone, a bottle of
D. D. D. should be kept on hand in
