THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 1908
One Doixajl Pro. Annum
I The forecast of The Week,
ederal mac[e two montha ago, that
lections.        fa Federal Elections would
«J| probably take place during
|ie last week of October, or the first week
November is practically confirmed by
|ie latest news from Ottawa. The Week
arived its information from a high auth-
*ity in close touch with the Government,
id it is probable that within a few days
1 official announcement of the exact date
ill appear in the Gazette. Sir Wilfred
aurier has been at the head of the Cana-
ian Government for more than twelve
3ars, and if the forthcoming election had
be fought out solely upon the personal
piation it is probable that he would be
itrusted with a new lease of power by a
ibstantial majority of the electorate. It
, however, a singular Nemesis which has
screed that the Administration of a
atesman of high personal character and
iotless reputation should be placed on
5 defence in respect of charges of a gross-
scandalous and disreputable character.
Hie fair page of Canadian History which
.r Wilfred the noble Knight would fain
ive handed down to posterity unsullied
is been besmirched by those whom he
lied to his Round Table, and although
> breath of scandal has assailed the Pre-
ier he is none the less responsible in his
IEicial capacity for the misdoings of those
lio have brought contumely upon his Ad-
inistration and have cast a shadow over
madian public life. The first essential
any servant of the State is high personal
aracter, but this is only one requisite.
' it must be added qualifications adapted
I the sphere in which the service is to be
udered. The position of Premier is the
ghest in the gift of tho people. The
sition is as responsible and as exigent
it is honourable, to all the gifts and
aces of mind and heart, must be added
knowledge of human nature, and the
iverning instinct and power to control;
the absence of any of these failure must
oner or later result. In lofty ideals, in
noble conception of the requirements of
e Dominion, and in the preservation of
fine character Sir Wilfrid Laurier has
aintained the best traditions of party
jidership. In the choice of his Ministers,
supervising and controlling their pub-
sations, and in taking cognizance of mis-
ing not only in high places, but among
e common law breakers who have cor-
pted Canadian elections, the most chai-
Iible observer must admit that Sir Wiled has wofully failed. It is true that
ie by one the chief misdoers have been
reed from public life, but only after pro-
aged and determined efforts on the part
■ the Opposition, and long after they
lid been tried and condemned at the bar
I. public opinion.    The Week has no
_sire but to be strictly fair when dealing
ith the public career of a Premier so
iiinent and in many respects so admirable
Sir Wilfred Laurier, but it is impos-
Jble to resist the conclusion that on the
Te of the Federal Elections he stands con-
eted of the failing which was laid at
|e door of Eli "whose sons set themselves
I do evil and he restrained them not."
ie Conservative press seems already to
ve determined that this will be the issue
Ithe forthcoming campaign.   As a mat-
. of fact in one form or another it is
,vays the issue.    It seems as if the day
yet far distant when a Canadian Genii Election can be fought on any other
jjunds than those of alleged mal-admin-
Iratioii and scandal.    The most regret-
dc feature of the whole matter is that
J leader who in himself is above suspicion
mild have proved so incapable of gov-
EDITORIAL
erning others. In the opinion of The
AVeek this must be regarded as a fatal
objection to the Laurier Administration and to its continuance. Sir Wilfred himself has deplored the prevalence
of corruption in Canadian public life. In
twelve years he has failed to check it, indeed the evidences are that with increasing
age his control has diminished and corruption and misdoing have proportionately
increased. Unfortunately during the last
two sessions Sir Wilfred has shown a growing disinclination to permit the probing
of scandals, and has adopted a policy whicli
at any rate lays the Government open to
the charge of screening wrong doers.   It
ernment asking them to secure and make
a present of it to the City. As long ago
as the 16th of August, 1905, the Secretary of the Esquimalt Waterworks Company offered to supply water to the City at
the following rates:—Eor the first million
gallons daily, 2 cents per thousand gallons; for the second million gallons 1%
per thousand; for the third million gallons, y% cent per thousand; for any excess over five million gallons per day up
to but not exceeding fifteen million gallons, free. The company offered to contract on these terms for twenty years, renewable if the City desired it for another
fifty years.    The Week doubts whether
is with these recent experiences fresh ill
tlie public mind that an appeal is taken
for the country. Upon the family escutcheon of tlie Laurier regime the bar sinister will loom large in the eyes of the
people, and the names of Sifton, Emerson and liyniaii will remind the electorate
of a reign of plundei and profligacy, which
has done nothing to purge its offence and
which is weaker at the close than at: any
previous period of its career.
When the rain comes people
The Water forget for the nonce all
Supply. about   the  water  question,
and possibly the same thing
occurs with the City Council, for which
reason it may not be out of place to remind all and sundry that the relief afforded by rain is just as temporary as
that which is aimed at by the expenditure
of money at Elk Lake. That the Council
is convinced that Goldstream is the only
satisfactory source of supply is fairly well
evidenced by their long continued effort to
secure it, and by the fact that the Mayor
wrote an open letter to the Provincial Gov-
the public has not long ago forgotten this
offer, otherwise it is not easy to understand why it has been allowed to lie. The
fact has not teen sufficiently emphasized
that if Sooke Lake should he adopted as
the source of supply, it would be necessary
to purchase and depopulate a large tract
of country in order to guard against contamination, whereas thc Goldstream watershed is practically uninhabitable, and contamination is almost impossible. Granted
that the present expenditure upon larger
mains is necessary in any event, and would
he available for the distribution of water
from whatever source obtained, it is none
the less both necessary and urgent that a
permanent source should hc speedily decided upon. The lapse of time before any
new supply could be made available is the
factor which seems to have received insufficient attention from the Council.
Since The Week last went
The Cricket to press the cricket tourna-
Tournament.     mex\\ wound up literally in
a blaze of glory. Never has
the relation between cricket, and character
been better illustrated than on Friday of
last week when the Victoria and Vancouver Clubs struggled for supremacy on
the Jubilee Grounds. The fortunes of
war ebbed and flowed. Vancouver with
104 to her credit had set Victoria a hard
task, when the quality of the Vancouver
bowling is remembered. And it is doubtful even now what the result would have
been if liigby had been in his best form.
Victoria went in, and with the century up
for three wickets looked to have the game
in hand. Then the fortune of war turned,
they lost three of their best wickets—Martin, Meredith and Lou York, for practically nothing. This heartened the bowlers,
with the result that eight wickets were
down for 131. Then the struggle was on
in earnest. W. York rose to the occasion,
and batted with confidence and skill, Cop-
pinger the modest little ground man, who
was expected to do nothing, gave a splendid exhibition of grit; he played like a
book, kept his wicket up against the most
tempting halls, and was content to score a
few odd runs while York was batting freely. Then the Vancouver Captain made a
fatal ..mistake. Seeing victory slipping
from his grasp, he changed the bowlers,
taking off liigby and Crossfield, and putting on Hodges, Thomas, and Sweeney in
turn. That settled it. Both York and
Coppinger batted with greater freedom
and raised the score twenty beyond the
needed number before a separation was
effected. It was a glorious victory, thoroughly well deserved by the winning team,
and leaving only one regret that the Committee had not been able to arrange for a
two days match so as to play out a double
innings. If this arrangement can be made
in future it will greatly increase public
interest, and be a fairer test of merit. The
Committee is to be heartily congratulated
upon the arrangements for the week and
especially upon the increasing popularity
of the tournament, as evidenced by the
large crowd which turned out on Friday
and Saturday.
Since there seems to be no
The Canadian difference of opinion as to
Club Luncheon, fa unsatisfactory arrangements for the last Canadian
Club Luncheon, it can do no harm to emphasize what everyone is saying. Before
doing so The Week wishes to exonerate the
President and Committee from blame,
knowing somewhat of the difficulties they
had to contend with and that they were
powerless in the face of obstacles which
almost necessitated the abandonment of
the luncheon. The trouble is that Victoria does not possess a suitable room for
public functions of this kind. It is impossible to hold them in a hotel or restaurant at the ordinary meal hour without
clashing with the ordinary guests. Then
again few people realize the difficulty of
securing adequate service for a hundred to
a hundred and fifty additional lunchers.
This is a problem whicli has been accentuated by the large increase of membership, and will have to be faced. One thing,
however, may safely bo said, that the Club
cannot afford to run the risk of subjecting
a guest of honour to such disgraceful conditions as prevailed at tho last lunch. The
members to a man will refuse to pay
seventy-five cents for such a collation as
was placed before them last Tuesday,
crowned with its decoration of a hundred
and sixteen glasses of iced water. Of the
service and the attendants the less said tho
better. Unless the Committee can do better
than this The Week would suggest eliminating the luncheon and substituting a
smoker in the evening. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 1908.

ubject. Not only has he helped me
heap ridicule on the misguided
lUthors of the abortive by-law, but
ie has laid the community, or at any
ate all dog* lovers, under an obliga-
ion hy quoting extensively from Hel-
iwell  Sutcliffc's classic "A   Bachelor
Arcady.
No   one  can  read   the
'dog-tax." This precious section pro*
vides that a "kennel licence shall ON
DEMAND be issued by the City
Treasurer to any keeper of dogs upon
payment of ten dollars annually, and
such payment shall discharge the person paying the same from liability
for the above annual tax in respect
'xquisitc   sketches   of   this   lover

j of each ten clogs, and for over ten $i
for each additional dog." The effect
of this is that any person who owns
liculous "Bumble" can make himself  or rents a shed can on demand obtain
a  "kennel  license"  for  thc  breeding
of dogs, although he may have nothing but mongrels; and although no
censorship of any kind is established
to govern the dogs he shall breed.
This is putting a premium upon mongrels with a vengeance, and guarantees the perpetuity of the very evil
which it should be the object of the
by-law to allay.
Boiled down into a sentence all that
the City needs is control of dogs on
the part of the owners, liability for
jt any damage they may do, and such
legislative enactment as will make it
worth while to breed good dogs only.
Therein lies the solution of the, problem. It has aroused a degree of
public attention, in consequence of
thc ineptitude with which it has been
handled   by   the   authorities,   that  is

developing  into   public   hos-
riien dealing with matters of which

Thc spirit of the men who attempt-
d to enforce the precious by-law is
veil illustrated by the fact that they
nade their first attack on Mr. Leon-
rd Solly who had rendered himself
onspicuous by his effective criticism
if the measure; this savours alto-
;ether too much of the Canadian prin-
iple  of "getting  even."
I have before me as 1 write a copy
f  the   new   by-law,  which   contains
o less than twenty-four sections
full  of  incongruities  and  betrays
woeful lack of acquaintance with
.hat is demanded by the public in-
erest.
For instance, take Section 8, which
lassilies dogs with a host of other
nimals such as the horse, ass, mule,
x, bull, cow, cattle, swine, hog,
heep, goat, goose and duck. By what
rocess of reasoning it is possible to
lete out the same treatment to all
lie creatures named in this list passes

lares that not only shall none of

On Picnics.
I attended my first picnic in Canada
last Saturday; needless to say it was
the great Conservative picnic at Sidney. It was also my first visit to
the picturesque little settlement whicli
is chiefly celebrated for the frequent
references in the press to its antediluvian railway service, and the scarcely less frequent comments ■ which
one hears from the stage of the New
Grand when some smart monologuist
wishes to cite an illustration of a
dead-alive place.
Of the railway system volumes
would fail me to tell; it is fearfully
and wonderfully mad-^ fearfully and
wonderfully managed, and fearfully
and wonderfully operated. I doubt
whether any other civilized country
in the world can duplicate the unique
arrangement by means of which two
thousand people were carried from
Victoria to Sidney and back last Saturday.
The train on which I went consisted of three coaches, a baggage
van, and three flat cars, needless to
say all were packed to capacity. Of
the total number of people carried I
estimated that at least 30 per cent,
had a standing up seat, but evidently
they were accustomed to it, for no
one grumbled, preference was given
to the ladies and the children, and
even the discomfort of such a trip
could not dampen the enthusiasm of
the picnicers.
Of the return journey I cannot
speak as favourably. I came back in
the baggage van, which was crowded
not unlike the Black Hole of Calcutta. There wasn't room to turn.
Ladies were seated on his Majesty's
mail, on valises, and even on the floor.
Children were packed into every conceivable corner, and one dear little
mite crouched on the floor between
his father's legs, peering out with
wonderment at the struggling mass
of humanity. When the van was
chock-full a stout man insisted on inviting his equally stout friend and
a by no means slightly built wife to
"step up." They stepped up, and our
cup of woe was full.
My last reflection on this railway is
that it is bad without a redeeming
feature, and that there ought to be
some means of compelling the Company to handle passenger traffic in a
civilized manner.   Further, I am con
vinced from observation that a good
railway service would render Sidney
a popular resort and a very acceptable recreation ground for those who
want a little change from Victoria.
As to Sidney itself, it is a pretty
little settlement, I counted one hotel,
on Trading company, one store, one
saw-mill, one landing stage, and one
street; indeed pretty nearly everything seems to go by ones. I did,
however, manage to count up twenty
houses, and now I think you have the
capacity of Sidney.
There is a beautifui water front,
and in Robert's Bay the water is
warm enough for bathing; indeed, I
confidently expect to see a large summer hotel established at this point
within a few years. Land on the
water front at Sidney is valuable, and
will prove to be a good investment.
There is one lot of four acres on the
market. I am not paid to boost it,
but if the price is what I was informed, it is a snap, and will grow
into money rapidly.
So much for the railway and the
place, and now for the people. The
inhabitants of Sidney must have been
scared out of their wits, for by train,
boat, and road three thousand people
invaded its quiet. They filled the
hotel, they lined both sides of the
main street to watch the sports, they
overflowed into the woods where they
opened their baskets, and they scattered along the sea front and the
children, at any rate, indulged in an
enjoyable paddle.
It was called a basket picnic, and
lived up to the title, for everybody
seemed supplied with provisions, and
everybody had a good time. To use a
boyish expression, the committee kept
"the pot boiling" all the time.
First came the sports, in which
the fat men and the married women
distinguished themselves. Then the
side shows, including Aunt Sallie, the
cocoanut, games of skill and chance,
and later on the redoubtable tug-of-
war in which the Victoria policemen
were no match for the Nanaimo
miners.
From four to six was devoted to
oratory; a platform had been erected
at the base of a large tree, whose
overhanging branches formed a canopy. About half the holiday makers
squatted on the grass and listened
to the various speeches; the attention was excellent and the addresses
were closely followed, especially by
the old timers, who did not hesitate
to indulge in frequent ejaculations.
One veteran announced, under the
influence of a stimulant, that he had
lived there forty years, and he was
"no Canadian," he was "a British Columbian," and unless I greatly mistake, there are still a few old timers
in the Province who have yet to be
convinced of the benefits of Confederation. The Premier and Mr. Shepherd both spoke well, and made themselves heard, which is not an easy
thing in an open air meeting. The
latter was perhaps a little too argumentative for such £11 occasion, but
he was well posted and unless I greatly mistake will prove an effective campaigner. The official proceedings
wound up with the crowning of the
Queen of Beauty.
Viewed from every standpoint the
picnic was a success, the numbers
were far in excess of anything expected; thc weather was perfect, thc
committee most capable, the organization admirable, and the influence
as favourable from a party standpoint
as such a gathering could be.
I closed my political ears and my
political eyes and tried to regard it as
a human interest story in which three
thousand people took part, everyone
bent on enjoying themselves, everyone leaving the restraint of city life
behind, and giving a glad hand to
their fellows. It was an afternoon
under happy auspices and of happy
augury.
"Yaas?" replied the jealous neighbor.    "Dat Mistah  Green sho' is  de
mos' keerless, onsuspectin' man!"
On the Contrary.
Large—There   goes   a   man   who
takes life easy.

Enpeck—Why, my wife, of course.

Why shouldn't they keep what they
make—
For who so poor as they?

interrupts the proceedings of this

Sporting Comment
The latest change in the lacrosse
chedule gives the local club two
nore games to play, the first being
his afternoon against the Maple
-eafs and the second against Van-
ouver on Labor Day, both of which
rill be played at the Royal Athletic
'ark. The decision to cut out some
f the games was a very wise one,
s under the circumstances it would
e impossible to play lacrosse so late
11 the year; as it is the schedule now
xtends into the month of October,
.he game this afternoon should be
good one, and if the local boys
ave any luck victory will perch on
heir banner.
The local baseball club won anther game last Saturday when a de-
eat was handed out to the Athletics
f Seattle in a ten-inning game which
ave the spectators a good run for
lieir money. Although the game end-
d with the score very close, the game
tns not as good as might have been
xpected as many costly fouls were
ade. This, however, was made up
>r by the brilliant fielding of some
f the players. As the season for
aseball is rapidly drawing to a close
ere will be very few more games
id if the locals manage to win the
imainder they will finish the sea-
n with a good record for playing,
ven if the club does come out bend. In connection with the game
1 Saturday there is one incident
hich I cannot overlook although the
iblic in general knows nothing about
I refer to the action of. one of
te street car conductors in ordering
to of the visiting players off the car
cause they did not have change to
iy their fare. In all the games this
:ason the players in uniform have
dden free and as these two players
had played in this city before they
took the car without taking fare
money. The conductor was informed
by several people on the car, including Manager Wille of the local team
that players rode free and they were
likewise threatened. I do not wish to
make any trouble for the conductor,
but a few more exhibitions of this
boorishness will soon loose for the
carmen their proud reputation for
gentlemanly manners.
That Victoria can hold its own in
aquatic sports was evidenced at the
Gorge last Saturday when several
championships were retained in this
city by some of our well known
swimmers.
As the season for football advances
there are efforts being made to place
strong teams in the field to represent
the Capital City. Both in Rugby and
Association there has been a tendency
in the past couple of years to place
too many teams in the field. This
is alright when only local teams arc
playing, but when outside cities have
to be counted with it is bad policy
and I hope that when the time comes
to see the championships played off
that Victoria will be represented by
the strongest aggregation that can be
secured as it is only by this method
that the players can hope to win
championships.
Although the Provincial Exhibition
does not come within my scope in
the true sense of the word, I am going to take the liberty of impressing
on the minds of Victorians in general
the importance that depends on the
successful conclusion of this event.
To commence with this show should
be looked forward to by every resident of this city with interest for by
the result of this  show  will  be  thc
coming of many new residents and
that is what wc are after. There is
scarcely a month before the fair is
opened and in that time every effort
should be made by Victorians to do
a little advertising, by letting their
friends ill outside cities know of the
exhibition. It is estimated that Victoria has a population of from 35,000
to 40,000. If one-quarter of these
people took it on themselves to get
one friend to visit Victoria during the
fair week, look at the crowd that
would visit the show and with a
little energy it could be done, and
their attendance at the exhibition
would assist materially in finances.
The directors of the fair are composed of Victorians who devote considerable time to the exhibition without the least chance of any remuneration but simply to advance Victoria
and  they should  be assisted.
1 have made enquiries during the
past few days and 1 learn that everything points to a successful show. Already every inch of available space in
the main building has been allotted
and several Victoria linns through
their own tardiness have lost thc opportunity of exhibiting. Entries for
every class are coming in steadily and
a record for the number of entries is
expected to be established. I am informed by Secretary Smart that the
Horse Show, which by the way is an
innovation in Victoria, is attracting
more outside entries than local. I
know personally that at least fifteen
individual owners from Vancouver
will be represented. Seattle and Tacoma arc sending their share, and it
is up to Victorians to get busy. A
careful perusal of the prize list shows
that there is fifty-eight classes alone
for the horse show which includes
tally hos and six-horse heavy draft
teams down to Shetland ponies. This
gives every person with a horse a
chance to enter, but as yet for instance in the two lirst classes mentioned no entries have received although one entry for a four-horse
team of heavy draft horses has been
received from Seattle and it is very
probable that the Vancouver Transfer Co. will enter their six-horse tally-
ho, which won lirst place in the Vancouver horse show. With the number of horses in Victoria there is no
reason why outsiders should come in
and get the prizes through the apathy
of the home owners. Entries do not
close until September 12th this gives
the local horse owners time to get
busy and I hope that they will make
a large entry list from this city as it
is only by these means that the show
will be made a success.
Small Boy's Theory.
"1 wonder why the bride is crying?"
remarked one of the guests at the
wedding. "Can it be because she is
leaving home?"
"No, I guess it ain't that," answered the bride's small brother.
"She's in love with the fellow she
married and I guess she's crying
'cause she feels sorry for him."
No Longer A S cret.
"So, that great invctor is dead and
the wonderful secret is lost—"
"Not at all. Hc told it to his wife
just before he died."
"Yes, that's what I mean."
Temptations of Cash.
There is no one so devil-tempted
today as thc young custodian ol tlie
cash drawer. Ile is tempted because
he assumes he is not paid enough;
tempted because he cannot indulge
himself as some who are better paid;
tempted because he is vain of a good
appearance; tempted because he
wants to shine socially; tempted because he loves devotedly and cannot
shower gifts from his thin pocket-
book; tempted because he is a neophyte in forbidden mysteries; tempted, most of all, by the desire to
emulate some other apparently successful young men who have made
great "killings" on the race track or
the stock exchange.
In Bad Company.
Gibbs (visiting)—What sort of
neighbors have you here?
Dibbs—A bad lot. There's a blacksmith who's engaged in forging, a
carpenter who's done some counter-
fitting and a couple of fellows next
door who sell iron and steel for a
living.
A Pretty Quarrel.
"Yes," said the suburban citizen,
"it is a very pretty quarrel as it
stands."
"No hard words, I hope."
"None, whatever. My folks are

* A Lady's Letter *
Y By  BABETTE. ^
Dear Madge:
It is quite plain to my way of
thinking that the restlessness of
modern society is the outcome of
' searching for work for idle hands to
do, and attaining the proportionate
amount of discomfort usually connected with this occupation, for the restless rush of modern existence is curiously non-productive, Having nothing definite to employ th eir time, fair
fribblers are ready to till their days
with a hundred and one indefinite,
impractical tasks that may comprise
anything from revolutionizing the
constitution to booming the latest
acrobat, or making a vogue for the
latest fashion. It may be all very
praiseworthy, all very energetic, but
it is all very futile, if women would
only be content to leave half the matters they now meddle with alone they
would escape much wear and tear,
which produces nothing save wrinkles.
Xot only would they be proportionately healthier, but they would be infinitely happier, infinitely nicer ancl
far more competent to enjoy the
pleasures offered by the life of ease.
For when all is said and done, a
woman's mission in life is to be
beautiful, and to smile at life if she
wishes life to smile back at her. Women defeat their object if they wear
themselves out with restless activity.
If they would but realize the fact,
life's labors have been justly proportioned. For such dreary privileges
as paying bills, exercising the franchise, and making money have been
relegated to mere man, who has plenty of time to spare for such matters;
for unlike womankind, he is not constantly occupied with change of fashion, change of figure, the wearying
care of the complexion, and the pursuit of pleasure—all matters which
in themselves alone are quite important enough to keep the average woman busy from morning till night,
and which, according to Goldsmith's
theory of an ideal life, should provide her with "A youth of labour,
and an age of ease." But alas, the
result is that tinder present conditions
women who have everything as far as
money goes, and who live the so-
called "life of ease" are all characterized by a sense of fatigue that
renders pleasure incompatible. As
everyone knows, a nerve-tired woman is a nerve-racked woman, who
is hardly responsible for her lack of
equanimity. Half the disagreements
of domestic life, half the jars of
family existence, the fierce quarrels
over bridge, the consequent actions
whicli bring such odium upon society, might well be avoided if women
only possessed that sense of restraint
that would prevent them undertaking
the task of attempting to do five or
six times as much as they can accomplish.
The question of flirtation has been
agitating my mind for some time
"Girl flirts" .1 am sure are inva'ri-
ably misunderstood; they are not so
much to be blamed as to be pitied.
They cannot make up their minds.
They have become "engaged" and all
has gone well for a time; when suddenly, for no reason apparent to other
people, they have broken their engagements, have renewed them, and
broken them again, and have finally
drifted into a state of mental irritation, the result of sleeplessness, worry
and impaired nutrition.
The usual notion is that they "do
not know their own minds" or that
they cannot make up their minds,"
whereas, as a matter of fact there is
not much "mind" in it. They are in
an impulsive state, and all their actions show it. The truth is that marriage means a good deal more to thc
woman than it does to the man; and
I maintain that many girls do positively shirk—when it comes to the
time—thc part they have to play.
Hence they vacillate, and end by a
series of inconsistencies which bring
upon them the opprobrium of outsiders who have not fully understood

the conditions, i do not believe that
women invariably lure men into engagements, and then reject them for
Lie amusement of placing themselves
in awkward and ridiculous circumstances: for it is certain that thc
mental change which is involved in
the term "falling in love" is of so
complicated a character that though
it may (and often does) proceed to
a correct solution, it may on the other
hand seriously affect the mental life
of the individual. Let women be
credited with this—that for a long
time they have been coerced and kept
in subjection, that they have had to
act on the defensive, and have therefore been made suspicious that it has
become a necessity for them to test
the genuineness of overtures, and that
if they use their arts and attractions
•is decoys these means are after all
t.te only armour and weapons which
i.icy can employ to find out whether
tne attack is real, lias not one of
tne most astute of our sisters said
t.iat the wedding ring is but the token
of women's folly and men's presumption? In the true balance between
the emotional and the intellectual we
find the exact conditions best suited
for happy marriages. It is just on
this platform that the greatest number of social difficulties arise for the
emotional idea may be strongest at
the very time when lhe intellectual
i*- in course of development. The ancients truly said that "love is blind."
Often one comes across people who
complain that they have but few
friends. They will point to others
who have many, and wonder why
such   a  distinction  is  made.
The matter is easily explained for
as some one said, "The only way to
have a friend is to he one." For
friendship cannot be a one-sided mat-
I ter.   Just as it takes two to make a
bargain or a quarrel so does it taice
' the same  number to make a  l.neucl-
snip,
.\o one can stand aloof from
others, waiting to be sought, without
experiencing keen disappointment;
friendships are not made that way.
People do not look you over as you
stand off by yourself and say: "Now,
there's some one I'd like to know; I'll
make a point to draw him or her
out, and take all the pains possible
to establish a friendship." That's not
the way it happens in real life, although some still imagine that it is.
What really happens is this: Two
people meet, and gradually they find
points of congeniality; they do little
favours, one for the other, then a
feeling of affection takes root in each
heart. Neither one is thinking of
what can be gained from the acquaintance; rather, each is thinking
and planning to give instead of take.
In other words, both are trying to
be a friend, unselfishly. And lo! it
is the very thing which makes their
friendships.
Hear that in mind if you happen
to he among those who lament scarcity of friends.

Every B. C. Home Needs a Little Heat
Even in the summertime,
but why suffer work, worry and expense of coal or
wood fires when a Gas Radiator, with just a match
and a turn of the tap will
give all the heat you need
in spring, summer, autumn
or winter. The fuel economy lessened, wear on
carpets, furniture and draperies, as well as freedom
from work and worry,
soon pay small expense of
