The Editor's Review
Of Current Topics.
JKING
..FT.
For the past two weeks
practically the whole of
our   editorial   comment
has been devoted .to em-
basizing the evils of the present system of
[inking in Victoria; evils which have been
ng recognized and have recently given
be to angry murmurs of discontent, not
tly here  but throughout the whole of
ritish Columbia.   Among the large num-
|r of letters* we have received on this sub-
at there is one appeal which is common
I, all—a request that The Week will con-
aue the good   work   and,   as   many of
|r correspondents put it, keep on ham-
ering away until beneficial alterations in
le present system are effected.   Most wil-
jigly would we do this, but the field to
] covered by this—the only provincial re-
jjw—is so great that it is impossible for
to continue, in fairness to our outlying
Ibscribcrs, after this week, to devote the
pno sf)ace to this one subject.
A Constructive Policy.
I We could easily fill the whole paper with
|ainples, shewing the stagnating influence
the commercial life of British Colum-
|.i of the present bank monopoly, but we
|ould be repeating what is a self-evident
ct to every business man of average in-
Iligence.   Our object is not merely to
lunciate a destructive policy, but to out-
le a constructive one.   We have not the
[ghtest desire to check the honest pro-
ess of Eastern banks, but we do desire
\ build up a financial centre in the far
ost because we hold thc opinion that it
laot healthy for any business community
J permit its currency—which is its life
|od—to be monopolised and controlled
men who ave neither resident nor in-
lested beyond collecting and using it for
fcn purposes.
KVc think that the time has come when
[opportunity should be seized and the
BANK OF VICTORIA founded.
Must Take Risks.
iVe have been told that Victoria lacks
J necessary energy and pluck to take the
Inge; we say that such a remark is a
ll on tlie merchants and business men
jthe Capital eity. Individually they
le never hesitated to take risks, to or-
lise, and to develop; probably the only
licism which could be made on this com-
|nity is that it has not yet fully learnt
tremendous power of unity, and that
Is by united action that the world's
litest works have been accomplished,
lat are these risks which are vaguely
Red at, but seldom expressed in the con-
Le? Surely all great movements are
ended by more or less risk. The Brit-
lEmpire as it stands today is the result
faking risks. What added India to tht>
Ipire ? A small body of men who dared
|ake a great risk and hazard their lives
their fortunes in the enterprise. The
[lding of a bank in Victoria does not
i for any such heroic measures. What
ed Canada to the British Empire ? An-
jtv small body of men who took a risk,
tit was it tliat lost the United States
lhe British Empire? Simply, the re-
lance of King George III nnd his mini's to take the risk of allotting a cer-
measure of self government to the
toon colonies. Had they taken that
here is very little doubt but that tlio
lie of tlio continent of America would
I: boon colored on our Empire map to-
Favourably Situated.
Now, let us see how Victoria is situated
for the founding of a Western bank, for
this purpose it would be wise to take a
glance at a few of the leading financial
cities of the world; we will take the four
greatest—London, Paris, New York and
Berlin. The question of age need scarcely be taken into account as New York and
Berlin—in a financial sense—are mere
children in age compared with London and
Paris and yet they have forged their way
to the front. The banking industry has
become the main channel through which
accumulated wealth is distributed in its
earning capacity; hence, surplus wealth
for loaning purposes is necessary and an
advantage which +hese four cities possess
in a greater measure than any others.
Every bank manager and director in Canada knows that Victoria possesses a
similar advantage as a banking centre.
What Other Cities Have Done.
Out of the four cities taken as our example, three are capital cities; whilst
this is not a necessity, it is undeniably an
advantage—an advantage we may point
out which Victoria also possesses. Two of
the four cities mentioned are sea-ports;
this point can be strengthened from the
well known fact that large sea-ports all
over the world have always been prolific
in the foundation and building up of
banks. Liverpool, Boston, Montreal, San
Francisco, Melbourne, Sydney, and many
other examples could be cited; the reason
for this is well understood by all financial
experts. Victoria is a sea-port and bids
fair, at some day in the near future, to be
a large sea-port. We venture to predict
that long before the end of this century,
the harbour of Esquimalt, the Royal
Roads, and the adjacent sea frontage will
teem with shipping engaged in the huge
Oriental trade which is bound to come!
What has banking done for the tonicities mentioned, and for every other city
which has become a financial centre ?
We say that by the magnetism and
power of finance it has attracted industries, enterprise and wealth, to those centres as well as developing native resources.
Victoria's Advantage.
During the course of this week a well
known bank manager made tlio remark that
Victoria had every advantage necessary for
the foundation of a Western bank; the
only difficulty would be tho necessity
for Eastern avenues through which
SURPLUS DEPOSITS MIGHT BE
LOANED, as lie doubted if a sufficient
outlet could bc found locally. We scarcely pause to point, out that the remark emphasizes the fact of Victoria's abundant
wealth, A MOST IMPORTANT POINT
in thc foundation of a bank. But we go
on to take up tlie implied challenge and
say tliat the moment a Victoria bank has
surplus money, the same moment there
will be a thousand and one applicants for
it from tho East and Middle West; but
there is a far more useful outlet for this
surplus.
Develop the Island.
From Alberni, from Quatsino and from
Nanaimo, come abundant evidence of an
awakening; this is due in part to the magic
wand of the C. P. R. and in part to local
enterprise. There can be no doubt tliat
in the very near future growing centres
of business activity will ]io right at Vic
toria's door. Surely these are the natural
outlets to which any surplus will find its
way; FOR EVERY SUCCESSFUL
BUSINESS CENTRE DEVELOPED
ON VANCOUVER ISLAND MUST
GIVE ADDITIONAL IMPORTANCE
TO. VICTORIA. Moreover the main
purpose of the founding of TIIE BANK
OF VICTORIA is to enable us as a community, to become masters of our own
currency, to use our own wealth for our
own development instead of—as at present—exporting it to distant parts of the
Continent.
Develop Victoria.
In addition to curing the evil from
which we are now suffering, we have pointed out how the financial industry of banking is a tremendous advantage to any city;
we wish to emphasize this fact. The
founding of the head office of any well
managed bank draws in its train dependent industries. It also materially assists
the existing local industries outside of ordinary banking matters; for instance, the
whole of its printing and stationery would
naturally be ordered locally; the whole
of the head office staff would naturally live
in Victoria; and, better still, Victoria bred
youths would obtain an avenue through
which they might rise to the head of the
banking community in their own city instead of—if they are ambitious—having
to migrate to a distant part of the country.
How It Would Work.
THE BANK OF VICTORIA would
start with groat advantages over existing
institutions. As soon as it is safely and
solidly launched the city's account would
naturally be handed over to her own institution, and this should be followed by the
Provincial Government's account. If there
be any who would say: "But suppose the
City of Victoria or the Provincial Go"
ernment at any time requires a large sum
of money, how would a local bank bo able
to handle the matter?" The reply is:
''Exactly in the same manner as it is done
at present."
The money required could be obtained
by our local bank just as readily, as easily,
and on thc same ternis, as banks obtain it
now.
AHold-TJp.
Wc could hardly be worse off than we
were four years ago when the Bank of
Commerce held up the Province, through
the Government, and threatened to stop
supplies unless an obnoxious Assessment
Act was swallowed " holus bolus."
Not Fault of Local Agents.
In offering this criticism on Banking in
Victoria we wish it to bc understood that
we do not lay any blame at the door of thc
local managers. They are all gentlemen,
and do as well for the community as their
insatiable masters will permit. They and
their staffs arc underpaid and arc allowed
no discretionary power. They are not
endowed with the responsibility of management; they are simply delegates who
mechanically chronicle the decrees of
Eastern directors.
Fault in the System.
The fault lies in the system; now is
Victoria's growing time and therefore her
opportunity to inaugurate a now regime.
Her favour, which moans her money, is
being courted; let her answer be, "Yes, I<
have money, but I want it spent for the
development of local resources and the
establishment of native industries, and
that can only be ensured by the foundation
of a local Bnnk." Under the exportation
of currency system Victoria lins boon n
veritable ' Sleepy Hollow" for forty years:
henceforth lot it reverse the policy and
thrive.
The erstwhile political
Political bed-fellows  who  respec-
Criticism. tively edit the Colonist
and the Times, have
fallen out in more senses than one, and
on both sides of the fence vituperation is
now the order of the day. The latest dispute is waged around tho somewhat interesting but rather recondite question as to
tho net result of the Liberal regime. The
editor of the Colonist, relieved from tie
obligation of his Liberal vows, declares
that he can see no result beyond the acquisition by Victoria of a Senator in Mr.
Riley and a Minister in Mr. Templeman.
The editor of the Times on the other hand,
thinks that the only fitting thing for
British Columbia to do in view of its overwhelming obligation to the Dominion Government, is to sing the doxology. As
usual both extrcmeists are wrong, there are
usual both extremists are wrong, there are
other things which may be tabulated
among the net results of the Liberal regime and one is the endowment of the
only "Conservative" Journal of Western
Canada with a Liberal editor, of which
circumstance the Victoria Times should
be the last to complain.
The result of Premier
The Foot McBride's visit to Eng-
Of the Throne.     land,   even   if   nothing
remains to be added,
would fully justify the course he decided
to adopt. He may or may not succeed in
securing hotter terms for British Columbia
thnn those offered at the Ottawa conference. That remains to be seen, but he has
furnished nn object lesson not only to tho
Dominion of Canada but to the British
Empire of the freedom of our institutions
and tlie accessibility of the highest autb-
ii'i v to overy suppliant. Hereafter no
1 distant colony, however insignificant,
111 cd hesitate to follow in the steps of Premier McBride, and petition the, Throne
in person for thoso rights to which it considers it is entitled. It, did not need the
visit, of Mr. McBride to London to establish this fact, although tlie Liberal press
of British Columbia was a unit in denouncing and in declaring that he neither
could nor would reach tho Throne, but the
incident has emphasized in an impressive
manner the privilege which every country
enjoys under tlie British flag. Political
critics who have all along declared that
Mr. McBride was merely running a bluff,
and seeking to make political capital, may
not hnvo the fairness to admit it, but they
must now sec that, he is a Premier of a
different calibre to tlie one they depicted,
that he has already scored two notable successes in the fight, the wringing of an
admission from Sir Wilfred Laurier that
Britisli Columbia wns entitled to special
treatment, nnd the securing of thc ear of
Lord Elgin and the Colonial Office, and
nn opportunity to present the case in person. The constitutional method adopted
hy Premier .McBride is bound to bear
fruit; it may not secure just what is
sought, but that it will be barren of results
cannot for a moment bo believed. If our
Premier scores a final success, he will have
rendered a notable service not only to his
native Province but to the cause of constitutional appeal throughout the Empire.

By THE LOUNGER
In my time I have commented upon many nuisances, but for thc most
part have dealt with abstract or in-
, animate objects. This week I wish
to say a few words on the subject of
human nuisances. Of course there
arc various kinds, including duns,
brass bands and book agents. The
class that 1 havc in my mind, however, is nf a more subtle kind, and
has no idea that any person can possibly hold thc opinion that hc is not
flic most entertaining individual, on
thc face of thc globe.
First of all there is the window-
starer. This extraordinary human
proposes .a walk down the street and
insists on stopping at every shop window to. look at the articles there displayed. In a woman this is excusable, as it is part of her prerogative,
and could bc no more easily abolished than her inalienable right to have
the last word. It is one of the weaknesses of the sex and has probably
been indulged in since the time when
the prc-historic maiden stopped her
brawny lover to discuss the comparative advantages of ah ichthyo-
saurean skirt ur that made out of
incgalosaurus.
.In a man, however, such a habit is
most- cbndemnable. There are two
reasons for this discrimination between the sexes. It is a well known
;|kiom tliat a woman can never make
tip her mind whereas determination
is the recognized character of the
man. If I happen to require any
article. T tyiow what I want and I
know the class of store in which it
is* sold; I, therefore, repair without
delay to the'emporium in question and
inquire if "they havc what I want in
stock. There is no need for mc to
gaze in thc window to disturb my already made-up mind. Secondly, this
habit of window-gazing is calculated
to induce the uuweary passer-by to
waste his substance on things of
which hc has no need. The class of
people who indulge in this idle folly
are a source of nuisance to their companions, owing to their perpetually
nudging them in the ribs to "Come
and see this." Time is wasted, regret is felt'that thc want of cash
prevents its purchase, or else, and this
is more often the case, credit is obtained, debt ensues and thc last end
of the window-gazer is worse than
the first.
A similar nuisance is thc companion
who will take you for a country walk
when nuts, blackberries or other wild
edibles arc in season, and will insist
oh diving into thc hedges or wayside
shrubs in order to pick and ca.t For
ihe such a course of conduct destroys
all the pleasure of the ramble, and 1
invariably return home sulky and irritable.
. There is, however, an even worse
pest  than   either  nf  thc  above-mentioned, in the shape of the amateur
botanist.    Imbued with laudable craving to learn thc truth about Nature's
beauties, he has not the consideration
to pursue    his investigations    alone,
where hc would bc able to take his
time,   and  pursue  his  erratic  course
without annoying his friends; hc usually suggests the walk, and then enlightens you as to his dread pursuit.
Argument   is   useless;   in   all   probability you arc enlisted in the enterprise, and probably return home laden
with rank weeds and noxious grasses,
a source of ridicule and contempt to
all whom you may meet.   Yon have
been dragged up almost inaccessible
peaks; you havc descended into what
appears  to have been  the pit  itself.
You have walked three times as far
as  you  wanted,  and  then  you  have
been made a beast of burden.
* tt   is   such   little   things   as   these
which make life intolerable to those
who arc devoid of such transient and
minor interests.   There is an clement
of deceit underlying thc whole system.
If you want to walk down thc street.
do so; if you want to walk down the Price* from 35 cents to $5.00, according
street to look into thc shop-windows, to site.   Write for seed aad tree cata-
do so, but warn your companion first, log.
If there is a hollow craving in thc
interior of your anatomy for black- JAY & CO. VICTORIA, B. C.
berries or nuts, get up an expedition
to go and pick them, but do not enlist an incautious friend whose tastes
lie rather in the direction of philosophy or the stage. The amateur botanist, geologist and any other "ist"
should never set out on his tour of
exploration without first explaining
his intention in no mistakable language.
There was a magnificent parade of
automobiles in . Victoria on Sunday
last on thc occasion of the visit paid
to the Capital by a large party of
Mystic Shrincrs. Every public car for
hire was pressed into service, and
there were also two or more private
cars, while the number of tally-hoes
and hacks which were interspersed
with their horseless rivals was extraordinarily large. Fortunately the
weather was magnificent up to five
o'clock and the drive round Oak Bay
and back down the Dallas Road must
have been perfect. The sight of the
masses of clouds grouped on the
Olympic range, so far from having
a detrimental effect on the view, seemed if anything to lend new grandeur
to the scene. It seemed impossible
to believe that so many automobiles
could have been imported into Victoria within so short a time as two
years, for I believe that it was just
so long ago that the first made its
appearance.
It is a pity that some means cannot be devised by which the scavengers might obviate the dust which
they cause when loading the refuse
of the streets onto their carts. Obviously this refuse must be dispsoed
of, but when the dust cart comes
round in dry weather it is almost impossible for residents to keep open
their windows or doors without having the house filled with a most unhealthy deposit of dust. I do not
think that a very scientific expedient
need be resorted to. On the analogy
of sprinkling water on a wooden floor
before wcilding the broom, I would
suggest that the city invest in a
number of large watering pots, with
which its employees could gently
moisten the beeps swept to the roadside before shovelling them into their
carts. I feel confident that there are
many who will agree in this.
Next week I hope to regale you
with an account of the numerous
comic incidents which are inseparable
from a pnblic holiday. I would do
so this week if it were possible, but
as I have to submit my copy on this
occasion before Thursday, it is manifestly impossible, unless I exceed the
bounds of truth and tell of things before they happen. This I cannot do,

How Champagne
Is Made
Chapter 3.
Shortly after the wine is
bottled a fermentation takes
place, and, the grapes being
grown on chalky soil, the fermentation is sufficient to produce the effervescence in
champagne, thereby forming a
sediment which later on must
be removed. After the wine
has become ripe for consumption, G. li. Mumm & Co. have
this done by placing the bottles in racks and shaking each
bottle several times a day,
turning it a little and gradually standing it on its head so
that all sediment formed in
the bottle rests on the cork.
This operation requires from
four to six weeks and is performed by skilled workmen
called "Rcmueurs."
After the sediipcnt has settled on the cork, the full
bottles, head down, arc carried on electric runways iu
Mtunm's cellars to thc degor-
guer, who, holding thc bottle
by the neck at a slight eleva-
vation, removes with pincers
the cork, which is ejected with
great force by the natural effervescence of the wine, carrying the sediment with it.
The dosage is then added, the
proportions of which depend
entirely on the taste of the
market for which the wine is
being prepared. The bottles
are then recorked and wired
and arc ready to be capped
and labelled for export.
Conclusion.
The dosage is the last process
in the preparation of French
Champagne and depends upon
the market for which the
wine is intended. France,
Germany and in fact most of
thc Continent preferring not
as dn- champagne as Great
Britain and the United States,
which demand wines of extraordinary dryness. Thc fact that
Americans arc always willing
to pay for thc best is one
reason why the house of G. 11.
Mumm & Co. exports its choicest products to this country.
Some brands produce heavy
wines by the addition of alcohol, but G. H. Mumm & Co.
havc always aimed to furnish
a pure champagne and of the
very best quality, thc Extra
Dry being of its type unexcelled, while thc Selected
Brut is pronounced by connoisseurs the finest , brut
champagne imported into the
United States, all cuvces being
made of vintage wines.

Spring is here and with it a
wealth of blossom and bloom.
Wild flowers and cultivated sorts
in plenty now—and picking is a
pleasure at this season.
But when picked, where do you
display them? Do you make a
fruit jar or a water pitcher answer
the purpose of a dainty flower vase,
and wonder why they aren't so
"very pretty" as some your friend
carefully placed in a ten-cent vase?
There is no excuse. Vases are
so cheap that every home should
have several.
We have provided  one  of the
most interesting collections of both
foreign and domestic kinds for this
season's selling you've ever been
1 asked to look at.
The prices vary according to
i make, style and size, but all are
fairly priced. In fact, some are so
low priced as to cause comment.
But come and see the beautiful
things for yourself—that's the better plan. The prices will be found
as interesting as the goods themselves.
We have a showing of Webb's
famous Hand-Made Glass, of which
we are justly proud. Clear, sparkling glass, artistic and attractive
shapes these Vases and Rose
Bowls at the prices quoted here
are better value than is offered
anywhere else in the city in flower

Great Britain is described by foreign crtics as at once the most greedy

The sin  you  would  not  sin,
Who comes to look In your two eyes
And seo what might huve been."
"Oh,   long  ago  and   long  ago
I  cast  you  forth,"  he suid.
"For thut your eyes were all too blue
Your laughing mouth too red,
And my torn soul wns tangled in
The tresses  of your head."
"Now mind you with what hitter words
You onst me forth from you?"
"I bade you back to that fair hell
Prom whence your breath you drew,
And with great blows I broke my heart
Lost  It  might  follow,  too.
"Yea, from the grasp of your whlto hands
I  freed  my  hands  that  day
And hnve I not climbed near to God
As   these  hls  henchmen   may?"
"Ah, man, ah, man! 'twas my two hands
Thnt led you all  the way."

That they might sec aright."

Music and Stage.
The musical treat afforded Victorians last Tuesday evening proved an
•immense success. The Institute Hall
was well filled when at 8.30 Signor
Claudio and his orchestra, The Mar-
gherita Mandolin Club, appeared. The
orchestra was assisted by well known
amateurs in town, whose talents won
a well-merited recognition. The club
lias done well during the past year,
and testifies to the ungrudging attention of both players and conductor.
All tlieir pieces wcre played with expression and in perfect accord, one
with another, and also with the conductor. This is as it should be, but,
alas, so many amateur orchestras arc
composed of players who arc quite
content if tlieir instrument can be
heard above any other. The Margherlta Mandolin Club can congratulate
itself on this point, that all the players seemed to be playing as a whole,
and not as a unit. Mrs. Harry Young
was the accompanist throughout the
evening, and never has she appeared
to better advantage. The accompanist is too often left out in musical
critiques, which is grossly unfair, as
a bad accompanist will spoil the best
siiiger. Mrs. Young is both sympathetic and accurate. Miss Brooker
as a violinist was excellent, as was
Mr. B. Foote as a cclloist. Mr. Arthur Gore sung "The Bandillero" with
good effect and Mr. Henry Griffith
pleased all with his rendering of
■ ''Voices of thc Woods" as set to Ru-
benstcin's melody in F. Miss Jennie Bishop also scored a success with
her song. To show that the concert
was a success it is only necessary to
say that every one of the individual
turns was encored, and that all the
ladies received bouquets. Needless to
say Signor Claudio himself was enthusiastically received when he gave
his violin solo and was compelled to
return again.

Miss Barrymore's Summer Tour.
Ethel Barrymore is now playing at
the Empire Theatre, the most .successful engagement she has ever known
in New York. Iler engagement there
closes on May iSth and she immediately goes on tour for a summer
season, whicli will extend well into
August. Miss Barrymore has been
having a busy time of it. Last October she went on tour in J. M. Bar-
iic's play, Alice-Sit-by the Fire. Later
she appeared iu Captain Jinks which
she also used for her opening play
at the Empire. Following this she
has appeared in "The Silver Box,"
"Her Excellency thc Governor," and
'Cousin Kate." Miss Barrymore will
be seen in "Captain Jinks" on tour
and will visit this city. Clyde Fitch
-never wrote a more delightful comedy
or conceived a sweeter love story
than that told in this play. The

Approval From Vancouver.
Vancouver, B.C., May 13, 1907.
Dear Sir,—I have been much interested and instructed by your articles on Banking Graft. Allow mc
to congratulate you on your courage
and the fearlessness with which you
have attacked the Trust which has
control of the whole money power
of the people of Canada, and which
is almost, if not altogether, responsible for thc backward position of
British Columbia, compared with the
Pacific States to the south of us.
We in Vancouver, sir, can sympathize witli Victoria people in the
extraordinary and unjustifiable position in which they have been placed
by thc transfer of what you so aptly
term "Thc Life Blood of Commerce"
from its legitimate arteries; but we
have found a remedy, or, to speak
rightly, the remedy has asserted itself. Some weeks ago, when financial institutions began to put on thc
screws here, there was a rush for
money by people who had payments
to meet on their real estate investments. Money became so scarce after
a few days that, in several instances,
men of substance and responsibility
were compelled to discount the
amounts coming to them on agreements of sale at rates that ran as
high as thirty per cent, per annum.
Almost immediately, depositors began to withdraw their money from
the savings banks and go in for the
discounting of agreements, and for
the good mortgages which wcre offering as high as eight per cent. The
banks soon became aware that their
action in closing down on legitimate
investors was proving a boomerang,
and today eight per cent, money is
going begging by the thousands.
There is another remedy, sir. There
are in British Columbia several institutions, controlled and managed by
well-known local business men, which
offer depositors a fair rate of interest
on tlieir money, instead of the paltry
three per cent, which the savings
banks allow. These institutions can
offer as good security in proportion
to their deposits as the banks. They
invest all their money in British Columbia, and persons dealing with them
do not have to suffer the humiliation
of impertinent questions and advice
from thc upstart clerks who constitute the bulk of the "puppets" mentioned in your article of the nth
inst. When a man deposits his
money in a local institution, he not
only gets an increased rate of interest, but he knows who is handling
his money, and that it is working in
his home town, not in Mexico or
South America, or on the Stock Market in New York, upholding American enterprises.
Yours sincerely,
AUNTY GRAFT.

The New Grand this week has certainly been putting up a good show as
befits the time when Victoria is expecting a large concourse of visitors.

who uses his toes and feet with infinite more agility than docs the ordinary person their fingers and hands,
entranced the audience who sat spellbound while witnessing his extraordinary marksmanship. Thc utmost

A Trot Round Victoria By a  New
Comer.
I have in my lifetime more than
once been lost in a city or town of
picturesque North or South Wales
and, upon seeking advice of location
from a native Cambriau, found that
he knew nothing except "Dim Sassenach," or whatever is his gutteral
translation of "Don't know English."
Upon the offer of sixpence, however,
Mr. Taffy can always rise to the' occasion and intelligently direct one to
take the street to the right, perhaps
called Llanbawdanfwarr-y-nylly-phwr
for two blocks, and then another
street to the left which sounds like
Pwyll-yel-zstnyth, and then keep going down the steep incline to Mor-
gannystyddllan-dudno or some such
nice, easy appclation for a belated
Englishman to pronounce.
* *   *
I remember once, some summers
ago, taking a short walk up a street
of a small Welsh town while I waited for the next train. Standing at a
corner of the road was a fair specimen of the nervous pink and white
young English curate, in tourist attire. As he appeared to be somewhat
familiar with thc place I ventured to
ask him the derivation of its name,
Machynclytth. He was a very fair
young man with hair the color of unwashed flannel and hc blushed painfully and appeared to be greatly distressed that, in his bashfulness, he
could not give mc thc English of. it.
Later on in the day I was introduced
to a bluff old Welsh farmer whose
mock modesty did not prevent him
from saying: "It do pe called Machynclytth, pecause it do mean pig-in-
milk."
* *   *
Were thc streets of our own beautiful Victoria as hard to pronounce
as those of romantic "Welsh Wales"
I imagine that the patience of our
esteemed friends, the Tourists Association, would be taxed to their uttermost. The stranger within our
gates should certainly be considered
much more than he is in the matter
of street names.
* *   *
This last week I have done considerable trotting around and I find
our Victoria street names frequently
conspicuous by their absence. In
many cases where the street names
are there they are unreadable, battered-looking as though they had been
through sonic celebrated seige. There
is not always a native interpreter upon thc spot and the unfortunate stranger hast to walk along until he meets
someone, or summon up courage to
ring somebody's door bell for proper
direction. I am now, of course, referring to the residential streets.
* *   *
A lady told me thc other day that
she walked rapidly after another lady
to enquire the name of the street she
was on, only to find the other woman
puzzling herself with the same query.
She then retraced her footsteps to
meet another, rather an elderly lady,
who also proved to bc a stranger to
Victoria. This lady was equally puzzled. Finally, these three distressed
females from a sister province paused
to ask advice from an old and extremely stiff-backed gentleman whose
chesty air, fortunately for them, betokened him to bc a walking encyclopedia of information regarding localities.

An Excellent Appointment.
The announcement made by thc
|felson Daily News that Mr. R. R.
ledley is to have charge of the col-
fcction of mining statistics and the
■reparation of reports, dealing with
lie subject of mining and smelting in
111 the Western Provinces, will be
lelcomcd with delight. It would
ave been impossible to find a more
l^mpetent or a more trustworthy
bntleman for the position. Mr. Hed-
ly is not only a trained Mining En-
Jneer and an experienced smelter
Ian, but he has done what none of
is predecessors could do, in rescu-
|g the Hall Mines Smelter from a
[indition   of  bankruptcy,   and  made
into a successful and economical
hoposition. Other people sometimes
laim a share of thc credit for Mr.
ledley's achievement, but all Westin men know that he alone deserves

they are. customers for about 70 per
cent of the total output it will be
seen how important this concession
is, and what a substantial contribution it makes to the solution of the
fuel difficulties.
Labour Shortage.
Lest Victoria and Vancouver should
think that the Coast alone is hampered by shortage of labour it may
be well to repeat a statement recently made to the press by as competent
authority as Mr. J. L. Retallack, the
well known mining man of Kaslo. He
declares that labour shortage exists
along Kootenay lake points and the
Slocan to an alarming extent at the
present time, and that at the moment
there was work waiting for 100 miners and muckers and 20 carpenters,
none offering. During the winter
time. Mr. Retallack said, there was
generally a supply of good local men,
but during the summer months these
men were engaged in looking after
their own interests, doing assessment
work, fruit farming or prospecting
and there was none to take tlieir
places.
General, and considering the difficulty which a premier usually experiences in making satisfactory appointments to his ministry, it is not a
little surprising to witness the unanimity and case with which the Liberal organs nominate Mr. Bowser for
the position. It is probable that the
guess is as near to comparative accuracy as the performance of the
same organs last year in predicting
the date of the Provincial elections.
A Square Deal.

pluntarily   relinquishes   a   pecuniary
Ivantage.    Under the stress of cir-
[mstances individuals have occasion-
jjy done so, but not so Companies.
lie C. P. R. has behaved handsome-
to the Coal Mining Companies in
le   Crow's   Nest  Pass  and  Eastern
[berta.    These   Companies,   as  has
len pointed out by The Week, have
[en mining coal at a very small pro-
and the recent  10 per cent ad-
Ince  in  miners'    wages    hit   them
jther hard, in spite of the fact that
C. P. R. had contracts with most
the mines,  they havc voluntarily
creased  their  contract  price  10c a
In to meet the advancing wages. As
To the Point.
The Slocan Mining Review, com-,
menting on the settlement of the coal
remark: "While we were all pleased
to learn of the termination of the coal
strike, makes the following pertinent
strike, we cannot help feeling that
a few more strikes will have the effect of forcing the Government to
assume control of the coal mines.
That is a desideratum we in common
with thc Socialists dream of, but it
certainly will not bc attained so long
as the Crow's Nest Company have
thc dead immortal cinch on the public, and arc subsidizing a certain newspaper not a hundred miles from
Nelson.
Disingenuous.
When The Week announced the receipt of a despatch from Toronto
predicting the early resignation of
General Manager Lindsay the News
wasted a dollar in telegraphing to Toronto for confirmation, and of course
for the coveted denial. Six months
ago when The Week announced that
shortly there would be a fresh issue
of stock by the C. N. P. Co., the Daily
News and another Provincial paper
obtained an official denial. On Sunday last the Victoria Colonist announced that Mr. Lindsay had authorized the press to state that there
would at once bc an issue of $500,000
worth of new stock by his Company.
Let the Editor of the News possess
his soul in patience. In less than
six months, and probably in less than
three, the prediction of Thc Week
will be verified, our authority is thc
same well informed person who gave
us thc first information about the
issue in stock, and also told us that
it would synchronize with thc exhaustion of thc funds which had been
raised by selling stock at a premium.
Since the new stock is to be issued
at $250 for $100, it is quite evident
that the system has paid well enough
to be continued. It is also equally
obvious that thc Nelson News is not
in thc confidence of its financial
backers.
so when the city was engaged in a
legal fight to protect its rights, thereby greatly weakening the hands of
those who were straining every nerve
to prevent a giant monopoly from
appropriating its power site. Now
that the West Kootenay Co. has absorbed the Cascade Co., on terms
which would never have been secured
if the Daily News could have prevented it, and now that the litigation
with the city is settled that paper is
reading the citizens of Nelson a lesson on the beatitudes and particularly the one which declares that it
is blessed to manifest the spirit of
meekness, and when you are smitten
on one cheek to turn the other. It
argues that Nelson ought to be very
much obliged to thc West Kootenay
Co. for condescending to transact
business in the district, and it urges
a reversal of the policy pursued by
thc civic authorities of the city in
vigorously defending their rights. As
far as Thc Week knows Nelson has
never engaged in an offensive campaign against the corporation in question; it has unfortunately been compelled to wage a very costly defensive war, in which it received no assistance from the Daily News, and
the virtuous platitudes of that organ
will only tend to deepen the impression that at no stage would it havc
been a safe ally.
mals had considered the direction in
which they wished to drop their trees
and gnawed accordingly. The exhibit
is attracting considerable attention."
We Stand Corrected.
The Kelowna Courier has seen the
point of thc observations made in Thc
Week with respect to its diminished
size, and now wishes to explain that
its proposal is simply to cut out
boiler plate, and give nothing but original matter. Thc Week did not understand this before or would not
have hesitated to say that one page
of local original stuff is worth twenty
of imported boiler plate. In abolishing thc latter the Courier is following an example set by thc Colonist
as soon as the present management
came into control, a course which is
to be commended. There is not the
shadow of a doubt that subscribers
generally have no use for American
inserts. When they want American
or Eastern material they buy it at
first hand. The Courier will be well
advised to act on the result of thc
vote already to hand. It will save
money, time and patience.
Another Guessing Contest.
The Liberal press of the Province
is once more busily engaged in a
cheap guessing contest, the puzzle is
to fill the portfolio of the Attomey-
Easily Explained.
Thc Nelson Daily News has always championed thc cause of thc
West Kootenay Power and Light Co.,
against  thc  City  of  Nelson.   It  did
The Industrious Beaver.
The opportunities for observing thc
beavers at work arc not as numerous
now as in pioneer days; it is therefore interesting to note that so near
to an industrial centre as thc new
coal city of Hosmer. interesting specimens of their work have recently
come to life. The Fernie Free Press
says: "Cree and Moffatt have in their
window some unique curios in thc
form of stumps off which the trees
have been cut by beaver at Hosmer.
Thc cut of the beaver will compare
favourably with the axe work of many
a man who considers himself a chopper. From thc nature of their cut
it is evident that the sagacious ani-

These many days my soul has breathed

I've walked in dreams, as   one   set free
From life's old jar and  noise.
The burden of the long, dread years
Your magic hands did raise.
The stifled cry my heart gave forth
Grew glud before your gaze.
I looked und I nm parched to taste
The redness of your mouth.
The  golden  glint  athwart  your  hall-
Reflects the ardent south.
But Spring—the promised happy time,
You say will never bloom    *    *    *
The orchards blighted stand, and stark,

Sanity.
By BOHEMIAN.
Sanity.
Larcn, S. R. Crockett, and J. Nevi-
son lirst appeared in the British
Weekly to substantiate my case.
But when I started out I had no
intention of saying so much about
literary criticism, but rather to direct
attention to the use of the term sanity
as applied to the judgments of men
with respect to their fellows, and here
the term is not so definitely understood. As a rule if one speaks of a
man as sane, the antithesis occurs to
the mind, and we find ourselves balancing his mental equipments as
against that of thc insane man. Perhaps for example he is endeavoring
to sustain a difficult and trying relationship, a relationship which is permitted only because it is recognized
that hc is an exceptional man, with
an exceptional character. Part of
this may be due to natural endowments, and indeed must bc, but a large
part may also be due to wide experience in human affairs; for any man
who brings an invariably sane judgment to bear upon the incidents or
life must have fathomed the depths
of human experience, must have
known what it is for thc iron to enter
his soul, and above all must have outlived that period of dreary pessimism,
which attacks every man of character however virile, when he first reads
dards which we could never reach,
but which have to be aimed at. I
suppose this is one of them, but
whenever I hear a man complimented on his sanity, and accorded pri
viieges on that account, I stand afar
off and worship; he is not a man, he
is a god. If he triumphs, he will
emerge from the conflict with mortal
wounds, and a visage marred more
than any man's, but he will have acquired thc distinction of having preserved the faith of the world in hit*
man sanity, that will be his reward:

to think that tliere is any connection
between the title of my sketch this
week, and lunatic asylums, or "dementia Americana." My resolve to
write on the subject of sanity is
traceable to a totally different origin.
Thc word sane is frequently used to
denote a man of sound judgment. I
imagine the word has crept into this
usage because it is fuller and more
•expressive than any other. It implies
a correct judgment and also correctness infused with humanness. A judgment which springs not only from intellectual grasp of a subject or an incident, in relation to all its bearings, but from the sympathetic assent
of a well-balanced mind and a gen-
eious heart.
izes thc truth of the great teacher's
dictum, that "all is vanity and vexation of spirit."
In the first shock of this conviction most men stagger, it means the
dispelling of a bright dream, the shattering of an idol or the revealing of
"feet of clay." This is a small matter to a weak man, or to one who does
not take life seriously, it simply means
a superficial bruise but no deep wound.
He will quickly recover and either become cynical or sceptical, and iu any

A Victor of Salamis.
William Stearns Davis, the author
of "A Victor of Salamis," is undoubtedly the leader among the younger
generation of American authors in
this class of fiction. Although he is
still under thirty, he has no less than
six books to his credit. Mr. Davis
seems to be the legitimate successor
of Gen. Lew Wallace and Sienkie-
wicz. His stories are equally remarkable for their correctness of historical detail and the genuine spirit of
romance that runs through them.
In this new story Mr. Davis has
turned to that radiant period in clas
sic history when Athens was queen
of Greece and Greece led the civilized
world. Hc seems to havc reserved
this brilliant stage for the time of
his maturer powers; and most successfully has he made use of the dramatic possibilities of that heroic
struggle in which Hellas saved herself, and in so doing saved all Europe from Oriental despotism. Recalling this momentous period it is
no wonder that "A Victor of Salamis" is a continuous narrative of glorious fighting and splendid episodes of
action.
The principal character is a young
athlete who wins the wreath of victory at the Isthmian games, and the
exciting contest, in which he meets
the champions of all Greece, is vivified with remarkable and exciting distinctness. Later, the athlete, through
the machinations of enemies, is driven
forth from Athens, and the scene
shifts to Persia, where the book glows
with all the color and warmth of the
Orient at the period of Xerxes' greatest power. This power is turned toward the subjugation of Greece, and
gives the hero an opportunity to redeem his name by manly feats of
courage at the* battle of Salamis and
elsewhere.
It is plain that a story which includes scenes and events so pregnant
and thrilling as these, when handled
by a man who long ago proved himself to be a born story-teller, must be
one to hold the attention of appreciative novel  readers.

the Blessed Voice," etc. 121110, cloth,

Literary Note.
Thc volume of Collected Essays by
Frederic Harrison, which has just
been issued by Thc Macmillan Company, is a book which shows thc religious tendencies of thc time no less
plainly than thc Rev. R. J. Campbell's much-talked-of work, "Thc New
Theology." As is well known, Mr.
Harrison has been for many years
one of the leading English Positivists
and members of thc so-called "Church
of Humanity." But he was brought
up in au orthodox High Church family, and hc has himself said: "I have
passed through all thc typical phases
of religious thought, from effusive
Ritualism to Broad Church, to Latitu-
diitai'ianism, Unitarianism, Theism,
and finally to the Faith in Humanity
in whicli I rest." In this book he
has gathered together his most important essays on religious and philosophical subjects, prefixing them
with an "Apologia pro Fide Mca," in
which hc tells thc connected story of
his religious evolution. This new and
hitherto imprinted essay is perhaps
Mr. Harrison's most important contribution to religious literature, beside being a human document of absorbing interest.

There's Many a Slip.
A Human Interest Sketch.
(By Mary Langton)
My old friend the wharf rat is still
:o the fore, so I am going to tell you
lis latest yarn.
"True for your, Miss, when you
lay 'ThereV-many—a slip 'twixt the
:up and~th«nip.' fj(~*''l
"They are good things, too, some-
imcs, those slips.
"Old Abe, yonder, says he wishes
hcy'd come oftener his way, pay day
light.   It's   often   this   way:   I'm   a
hinking,  Miss, there's lots of folks
vhat's just going to drink what the
ireachcrs call a 'cup full of the pleas-
:ris.s_o£ Ufc,' when suddenly something
SB-fit;   there's  a  slip,  and  they
hd out afterwards as they're all the
iore  happy  for  that  slip.   All   this
ire   reminds   me   of   something   I'd
kc to tell you about, what happened
short time ago.   One  cold  March
ight when I was a hustling around
usual with  the baggage, and oc-
isionally  putting  on  a  extra  spurt
keep warm, I seed a smooth-look-
ig dude  with  a long overcoat and
rey   kid   gloves   a-walking   up   and
own the wharf.   He was one of them
;gular town swells, with nothing to
d and lots of dough to do it with.
"Now, there's plenty of swells, me
id  Abe  comes  up  against,  regular
ecent sort of guys, and we always
ce as not takes a shine to 'em. But
[e didn't much like the cut of this
Ire  one's jib; he  seemed  too  sleek
|id perlite looking with a sort of a
jring-y   and  cat-like   walk.   Soon   a
lb comes along, and out gets a mid-
|e-aged man and his purty wife.   A
line man,  Miss, the boss of one of
lie   largest   firms   in   town,   and   I
eerd it said the smartest, most hon-
(it  and  busiest  man   in   the   place.
Jut  his  eyes,  Miss,  had  a   kind  of
Ired look, and his heavy beard made
fs   face   seem  old.   His  wife  was
Dung, one of them purty creatures,
liss, what seems to sparkle all over
|<e, when she smiles, and that was
1st about all the time with her theu.
then   that   smooth-faced  dude   sees
rn, off goes his topper, and he bows
pel   scrapes  and  'Ahs'   till   he   gets
jht up to 'cm.   The man sees after
|e luggage, and the lady smiles up
the dude as she says: T do hate
[ling away alone, even tho' its only
Seattle.'
I'T was a-piling up a truck, and I
juldn't  help   seeing  the   dude   take
Ir hand,  and heerd him say:  'The
Ixt time I won't let you go alone,
Iir.'   The lady kind of blushed and
Iked a bit sideways at him. Then,
Iss, I heerd a sort of quick drawn
"path, like, and there on the other
\e of the truck was the man, with
tired eyes all a-blazing, and just
lieering hard at them two over the
Jis of the trunks I'd piled up.
fVVell,  the  boat  pulled  out,  Miss,
111 the lady on board, ,a-smiling the
lie as ever at them two a-standing
[the wharf. The smooth-faced dude
lh  his  hat  in  one  hand,  and  the
Iter a-waving his kid gloves.    The
|cr man stood quiet like, a keeping
eyes  fixed  on  his  wife,  till  she
|s out of sight, and when the dude
'Good   Night'   he   didn't   move.
just    kept   a-gazing   after   the
[it.   When   we   started   to   fix   up
the night I sees him go and speak
[the  watchman,  then  get  into  his
and drive away.
[It   was   about   this   time   a   new
came   to   take  thc   night   shift
lh Abe and me, as thc work was
Iting kind of heavy and we needed
Ip.    He  was a clean shaved cove,
11 he didn't know much about the
as he'd been working in an ollice,
hc wanted to learn and guessed
ll  Hke the out-door life  all  right,
(was quite tall and young compared
f.i Abe and mc, and we called him
'White Kid.' cos' he was so clean,
always wore a soft black slouch
and   he   didn't   talk   much,   hut
j-ked hard, and wc all kind of cot-
led to him.    He used to get a bit
fvous-like when a boat was coming
or  going out,  and   I  thought  he
[n't  quite  onto his job yet.    But
Abe says to me 'That fellow's done
something and 's trying to dodge the
cops. Guess he'll vamoose one of
these nights.' Then, one day, soon
after this, I sees that pretty woman
a-coming down the gangway, and
there was that smooth dude to meet
her. I heers her say 'The wire reads
'Going away on business, better come
home at once to look after your
mother and the servants.'
"The dude smiles with his teeth,
and in a kind of sneering way, says:
'Oh, on business!'
"The. days and nights went by
quickly in the same old way, the
White Kid was sticking close to his
job, not mixing with the boys much,
and we never sees him anywhere when
off watch. Old Abe was getting
mighty curious: 'Bet he's in a deal
with the customs—anyway there's
something foxy going on.' But I
says 'Na, he ain't the kind to play
foxy with nothing; he's on the dead
every time, 1 can tell it by his face.'
"Yes, Miss, by his face. It was
a kind of a sad face, too, wid a yearning kind of look as if he wanted something so bad but was just a-biding
his time in hopes  of getting it.
"Sometimes when it wasn't our
watch, he'd slip away in the dark,
and we wouldn't see him again till
his next shift. One night, Abe.says
to me: 'Come on pal, let's follow
him,' and I've cussed myself ever
since for a-doing it. No, Miss, it
was no place for the likes of Abe and
me, a-hiding there like sneaks, behind the rocks, a-watching him walk
up and down the shore under the
stars, with only the waves to talk
to and his eyes a-gazing up at those
window lights in the swell houses on
Nob Hill. And when the glims was
all doused he goes back to the bunk
house for the rest of the night.
"Well, Miss, to go on with my
yarn—about three weeks after this
down comes that dude again to the
boat.
"This time hc was a-hustling round
getting a whole car-load of trunks
checked, and a-tipping all the hands
mighty handsome. The steward tells
me he goes on board and fusses about
the cabins he's engaged, opens boxes
of flowers, puts them in water, and
sees that everything is up to
the notch. Then, who should come
along but that pretty woman. She
wasn't the same, though, Miss. The
sparkle seemed all gone, and she was
nervous like, and her eyes looked sad
and strained. She didn't go on the
boat, but stood alone, back near the
freight shed, a-gazing up at the city,
the lights a-noddin' back at her as
she seemed a-telling them all a silent
good-bye. Then it was, Miss, that
for the first time I noticed the White
Kid. He was a-standing behind a
trunk near where she was, not doing
his work, but a-bending down behind
the boxes wid his hat off, and his
eyes just burning like coals in the
light as he peered into her face. She
didn't scc him, but kept a-looking up
at them blinking city lights till two
tears dropped on her hands. Then,
Miss, the Kid goes forrard, I thought
to stop him, but I tell you Miss, that
look in his face and his burning eyes
keep me back. And there he stood
before her, a-holding out his arms
and sort of crying like, 'Come dear,
come back home again.'
"And the boat slipped out with the
dude on board, and a night hand shy."

CORRESPONDENCE.
Cumberland, May 19th, 1907.
Editor Week:
Sir,—Mr. Sloan paid a flying visit
to Cumberland Thursday, leaving on
Friday morning. His mission was, I
have been informed, to enquire into
political management of the News.
He, witli one of his lieutenants, paid
a personal visit as late as half past
two o'clock on Friday morning to one
of his advisors. Did you notice the
announcement in the first issue, May
8th, after he had attacked The Week?
Fancy a man who supported the Liberal Government less than three
months ago, saying that the News
would not be conducted as a Liberal
paper. He was born in the cradle
of Liberalism—old Ontario. He will
simply create what he thinks will sell.
Is it supposable that any vender iu
the land would not rather sell Bibles
than playing cards, if he could make
more money selling Bibles? It will
even be so with Editor Bates. He
will create politics for his "health's
sake." There is a strong desire in
every town for a clean, reliable newspaper, printed with trustworthy news
of its town and the general news of
the world, and in any intelligent circle you may happen to drop into, the
common talk is the untrustworthiness
of certain newspapers. Whose fault
is it that the people do not have better papers? Whose fault is it that
they do not have a better House of
Representatives, or a better Senate?
Why is so much adulterated food
sold? Is it because the poor stuff
is cheaper than the good, or because
people arc ignorant, or because they
do not care? It goes without saying
that there will always be people ready
to sell anthing that others will buy.
The newspaper owner, like every
other owner of everything, is more
or less affected by the common desire to get rich, and to get rich speedily. And the means of attaining this
end differ among newspaper proprietors as they do with men in any other
business. Some are self-respecting
and honest, and some are not. Some
are tempted to address themselves to
the tastes of the majority. And what
is the taste of the majority? A mere
miscellany of sensational stories, a
desire to satify the newly awakened
desire for notoriety on the part of
certain of its readers. Thc newspaper
that attempts to present a picture of
its town's doings and to be trustworthy, must have an intelligent manager. The public is more and more
capable of forming its opinions—politically especially—without editorial
suggestions from men who boast of
"reserving the right of criticizing any
political party" when they really intend to serve the party which pays
thc highest price.

Dear Madge:
Linen, galatea, and zephyr frocks
are to be greatly worn-—sing hey for
the merry, merry laundress and the
tub! Some of the colours in dress
linens are lovely, and rose-pink is
said now to be dyed in so that it does
not fade. Grey-striped linens are also
provided, and nattier blue has been
successfully produced, which is a relief to the minds of its many linen-
loving admirers. It is a dainty fashion, and one befitting our scrupulously cleanly British womenkind. Pleasant as it is to look upon fresh, clean
washing-material frocks, it is pleas-
anter to reflect how clean they are.
Our glove bills for the season of
grace are going to be very heavy,
when fashion decrees that pearl and
French grey, mastic and pale tans are
the shades to wear, suede the material, and twelve or sixteen-button
length the style, then the woman with
a strictly limited dress allowance be-
biris to feel anxious. I don't know
why it is, but even in high summer
two afternoons' wear kills a pair of
delicate-lined gloves; everything one
touches leaves a mark, and things
must be touched. Some women buy
one long pair and half a dozen short
pairs to match. They cut the hand
parts off the long ones and hem the
arm portion, whicli is pulled down
over the short gloves and fastened
under a bangle. It is an ingenious
plan, and answers quite well. Needless to say only the careful and
troubled ones of us do it, so that the
gloves do not suffer greatly because
of the economy.
As if choosing and buying our
clothes was not already sufficiently
difficult there is plainly a worse time
to come in front of us. That mysterious body of people whose identity
and whereabouts no one seems to be
able to even guess at and yet whose
existence dominates every garment we
wear, seem to have given their secret
commands that every length of material that is used shall bc dyed some
different and obscure colour. This
mania for new colours is growing to
such lengths that it is adding perceptibly to the burden of life. Particularly so is it in the case of the women who arc trying to dress in blue,
and as most of them are determined
to dress in blue just now, they are
all more or less cross. No two of
these new blues can be found that will
have anything to say to each other;
they positively shriek if we attempt
any blending, and as no two different materials will dye the same shade
our difficulties are ten-fold. But what
arc we to do? No Nattier-blue frock
—for instance—is in the least the
same colour as any Nattier-blue hat,
and yet no woman would be so cruel
as to inflict a peacock blue hat with
a Nattier blue frock upon the eyesight of her fellow creatures. And
as black hats do not "go" in this case,
and all other colours are suicidal the
woman possessed of a blue frock
must obviously go hatless or spend
long days of agitated matching. One
imagines how lucky men are to be
quite exempt from this kind of difficulty. They never have to go careering round searching every shop for
a shirt to match their coat, lucky
creatures. All men being resolved
upon looking as exactly alike as possible, thc tailors and hosiers simplify
matters by bringing out all the slight
variations upon their few wants quite
simultaneously, so that no man need
•walk a mile to get exactly what every
other man possesses. Thc only exception to this I ever met was a man
who proudly owned to orange-coloured pyjamas with large black lozenges.
Whether these were the result of long
search or accident T never heard. At
any rate men should bc daily thankful for their escape as no one but
herself knows thc agonies endured by
a woman with an "eye for colour."
After a long period of degrading
opulence an awakening has set in in
the artistic perceptions of thc people
who make it their business to scc to
thc floral decoration of dinner tables
and    ballrooms,   Thc    unhappy mil
lionaire finds that several hundred
dollars' worth of orchids on one table
no longer bring him either admiration or envy, while the woman who
understands how to arrange three
roses in a vase is raved over by her
friends. The reaction is a healthy
one, both for mind and purse, and
long may love of simplicity be with
us. The enormous palm as a necessary furnishing of a room or hall is
now fortunately as out of date as the
"orb" or draped pot it once stood in,
and in place of them we have the
most graceful of natural little tree
ferns and shrubs in rough earthenware pots of uncommon designs. A
delicious variant upon these can be
had just now by plucking long stems
and branches of hawthorn and other
bushes while they are still only in
bud; the soft brown stems and tender green buds look exquisite wedged
in large bowls. One hears it called
sacrilege to pick unopened buds, but
I fail to see why we should not enjoy the beauties of foliage in all its
stages.
The cult of excessive slimness has
reached us in its most violent form.
The new short-waisted frocks make
it almost a necessity, and figures are
being compressed and diets curtailed
to a great extent. Diet of a most
rigid kind is self-imposed by the majority of women, and Lent may come
and Lent may go, but it could not
possibly inflict any further penance
in the way of food. As this kind of
living invariably results in the face
being the first to suffer and to look
haggard, continual massage with fattening creams and skin foods is necessary, and the life of a woman determined upon an elegant figure is
not one to be envied just now. Besides the encasing garments from
shoulder almost to knee of whalebone,
etc., great attention has to be given
to the choice of petticoats. A favourite method to obtain an extremely straight line is to wear thin silk
combinations and then a long princess petticoat of soft silk perfectly
plain and heavily hemmed, the hem
filled with a roll of small shot, the
skirt will then fall over this in undisturbed and clinging folds. Shall
we soon be damping our clothes to
make them cling, like the mediaeval
ladies? I am quite convinced that all
the doctorings of makers of rational
and hygienic underwear would go for
naught if the damping process was

The   Passing  of  Chameleon  Jones.
Oil, listen to the touching tale of gallant
Captain  Jones.
Captain,  did  I say?    Lieutenant,  by
the way;
He also blew the bugle (Oh, the sweet
pathetic tones!)
Bugle, did I say?    'Twas the band he
had to play.
Bugle, drum and life and all, he'd got
'em well in hand:
He played in perfect unison because, you
understand,
The band was all composed of Jones, and
Jones was all the band,
And that is   how   we  managed   at
Esquimalt.
Chorus:
Corporal    und    Private,    drilling    of
himself—
"Quick march, right wheel, halt!"
Jones was not allowed to rust or stand
upon the shelf—
Poo-Bali Jones  of Es—qui—malt.
Oh, listen to the touching tale of gallant
' Major Jones.
Major, did  I  say?  And  General  half

On  Sundays ho was  Chaplain   (Oh,  Ills
piteous sighs nnd groans!)
Chaplain, did I say?   Yes, he'd hardly
time to pray.
He   had   to   change   his   uniform   'bout
fifty times a week.
And   If   lie  disobeyed   himself  or   gave
himself snme check
He formed the whole Courtmartial; was

Opportunity Still Yours
The 2000 shares of National Investment Company Limited
Stock, offered at par, are being rapidly subscribed.
When the balance of this issue is sold, a premium will be
added to the par value of the stock. Therefore it will be necessary to make application without delay in order to participate
to the full extent in the profits earned.
Terms of payment are: 5 per cent with application, 20 per
cent on allotment of stock (about two months), 25 per cent in
one year, 25 per cent in two years, and 25 per cent in three years
thereafter. As there is no impairment of capital through the
issue of promoters' stock or the allotment of shares to Directors
and Officers below par, the Provisional Directors are confident of
being able to pay at least 10 per cent in dividends the first
year, especially as it is costing practically nothing to place the
first issue of 2000 shares.
Any number of shares may be secured on the above terms.
Application  forms  may be obtained at the office of the

"That seat is taken," said a morose
old gentleman; "my friend has kept
it with his bag."
"All right," said the wily passenger
affably, "I'll occupy it till he comes."
Of course the friend never came,
and just as the train was moving out
of the station the wily passenger
seized the bag and threw it out of
the window.
"What are you doing, sir?" shouted
the old gentleman furiously.
"Anything the matter?" inquired
the other. "You don't want your
friend to lose his bag, do you?"

It is very evident that this summer
is going tn bc a dead one as far as
baseball is concerned. Although it is
now practically the end of May there
has been no definite step taken towards forming a team. In a large
measure thc baseballcrs are like thc
lacrosse players, waiting to see how
much they can make out of thc game,
and would rather remain out if they
cannot make some money. This is a
very poor sporting spirit and one
that will have to bc overcome before
Victoria can claim to havc a winning

Modern British Modesty.
Thc Briton of very modern times
has had instilled into him the quality of diffidence, and to be aggressive
has been represented to him as
amounting to vice. Hc is also more
than ready to acknowledge the merit
of those whom aforetime he used contemptuously to designate as foreigners. This modesty is commendable;
but it would bc dearly bought at the
expense of that sense of greatness
which used to belong to thc nation.—
Country  Life.
Is the essence of the finest
grades of wheat.
It is prepared by special process
which eliminates all parts of
the grain useless as human
food, retaining only that portion of the wheat kernels which
contain every element necessary for the human body in due
ratio.
Nemo is a malted food; in the
malting process all thc starch is
neutralized; .all germ life is destroyed; all the grain is thoroughly sterilized. It is purity.
As a food it is perfect; NEMO
ALONE is sufficient to sustain
robust life and health.
