The Victoria Tourist and

just had an experience
not uncommon when
one has to deal with people whose
training is inferior to their education.
The Reception Committee of that organization, assisted by a number of
I the lending ladies of the city arranged for a reception to the teachers'
convention in the rooms of the League
on Port Street. Every preparation
was made; flowers and refreshments
were contributed ad lib., and many
personal sacrifices were mare in order to show courtesy and dispense
hospitality to the visitors. The large
number who attended enjoyed themselves thoroughly, and seemed to appreciate the function, but the officers
of thc convention neither recognized
the item in their official programme,
nor did they reciprocate by issuing a
complimentary invitation to any of
the officers of tho League to their
public meeting annonuced to take
place in the Victoria Theatre on Wednesday night, nor to their special picnic in the Gorge Park on Thursday
evening. Apart from the ignorance
which this omission indicates it is a
distinct slur on one of the most important organizations in the Capital
City, and a poor advertisement to go-
out into the Province that the convention did not consider Victorian
hospitality worthy of this recogni-*
tion.   Who is responsible?

Captious Critics.
Captious criticism of the institutions
of which Vancouver is wont to boast
herself, is the vogue just now. The
Police Department is for the present
sub judife, and now the talons of the
"kickers" are fastened on to the Fire
Department. Tliere occurred a fire the
other day, which, with the assistance
of an unkind providence and an unfair
wind, might well have cut a wide
swath through the business section of
Vancouver. As it was, it burned a
house or two and scorched a few adjoining buildings. But why, asks "Indignant," "Citizen" and "One Who Was
There," in the daily press, was this
terrible damage allowed to be done?
"Indignant" conies to the conclusion
that it was because the firemen forgot
to put on their helmets. 'Citizen" is
sure it was because the Chief drove
up at a 40-knot gait in his shirt sleeves,
while "One Who Was There" is cno-
fident it was because the fire laddies
(amateur journalese) had forgotten to
put on clean collars. Anyhow, the
the whole tribe of these chronic sufferers from "cacoethes scribendi" are a
unit in the opinion that the affair was
deplorable. With one voice this triumvirate demands the head of the Fire
Chief in a charger. As a matter of
fact the fault lay with the water 'supply, and will lie in that cool seclusion
till a city council is elected that can
cope with business concerns a little
more exalted than a bun-shop.

That great moral daily, The World,

A Worth-While Market.
In despite of the pettifogging parochial politicians the plump persons who
sit at, ease in the City Hall have decided
to give us a market place which may
in the dim future do some credit to
this city. The small men wished to
cut down thc appropriation lo a sum
f.mple for a third-rate feed store, but
fortunately some interested person
managed to work a majority of the
aldermen beforehand and in consequence
a "busy mart of men" will ere long
hum over the other side of False Creek.

Let It Pass.
Official Vancouver has decided to ignore the existence of Dominion Day.
The privilege of holding the celebration
annually in the Terminal City was
fought gallantly for in the old days audi
up to last year was taken full advantage of. But 1906 will record a blank
on the City Hall calendar as far as a
First of July is concerned, the Council
concluding that more practical matters
demanded the expenditure of all the
money in hand. Consequently anything
that is done to commemorate Confederation will devolve on thc outside of
public bodies who fortunately have .decided to wipe the eye of the Powers that
be and make the holiday a notable one
for those who do not draw civic emoluments. As for little North Vancouvsr,
though still in breeches, it will have an
affair "all on its own," and will probably carry it out in a manner justifying
ils early admission to the ranks of

The big senior championship lacrosse
match for this date is of cource the real
event of the day.   The Vancouver men
have certainly been working most ex
cellently well, and there is small doubt
of the result here,
A practice game is to be played on
the Jubilee grounds by the Victoria
team, who are to play Vancouver at
the latter's ground on Dominion Day.
Victoria is putting up a strong combination, and there is every prospect of the
palm being awarded to the Capital City.
The date for the annual regatta of
the North Pacific Association of Amateur Ooarsmen, held at Nelson, has
been changed from the ist of July to
the 27th and 23th of the same month.
The J.B.A.A. crew are in active training, and mean to show that if by any
chance they lose the trophy which they
have won so often, it will not be for
want of practice.
Messrs. Gibbons and Denham celebrate Dominion Day by opening their
great London Bioscope entertainment at
the Gorge Park. This should be a
drawing card, as there is no charge for
admission. The entertainment which
had a long and successful run in London, is the best of its kind extant, and
is specially designed for the amusement
of large crowds in the open air during the summer season. With the special facilities now provided by the B. C.
Electric Car Co. in the sixteen cars running between the city and the Gorge,
there should be no difficulty in satisfying
the demands of their patrons.
Thc Burrard Cricket eleven came
back with a broad grin from Victoria.
The club has never succeeded in keeping up its wickets for very long against
Vancouver and that it should, to all
intents and purposes beat the Victorias
hands down, has awarded it thc owner
of the Smile thai won't Come Off. More
power to your ofif-leg, Burrards.

Although the lacrosse match last Saturday between Victoria audi New Westminster ended disastrously for the Capital City, the local boys fully demonstrated their ability to hold their own
against a first class aggregation up to a
certain point; that point was reached
when superior physique and better
training began to tell their tale. In the
first quarter the Victoria boys surprised
their supporters; they were swift,
tricky and resourceful; the first goal
scored by them was a beauty, the result
of an extremely difficult shot which,
however, safely landed in the net. The
second goal was hardly less meritorious.
Then the Westminster boys woke up,
audi playing with more stamina and
somewhat better combination had matters their own way. A fair comment
on the game is that with regular, steady
practice the Victoria team would do
credit to itself against any Western
club. The youngsters are speedy and
have plenty of dash; all they lack is
combination and experience. Campbell, the goal-keeper, is a "peach' ; some
of his saves were little short of marvel
Ions; he was never out of the game for
a moment, and when he was not returning shots he was invariably worrying an
opponent, and as invariably got the better of the tussle. With such material it
would be a thousand pities if through
the indifference of the public, or the
short-sightedness of employers the team
should not be beldi together, and every
true lover of sport should make it his
business to take an interest in a team
capable of playing the national game
so well.
The J.B.A.A. have lost a valuable
member in the person of Mr. George Y.
Simpson, who has gone to Vancouver
lo take up a position in the Canadian
Fairbanks Company, which is the biggest wholesale machinery and supplies
firm in Canada. Mr. Simpson, who has
been acting as under-sheriff in Victoria
for the last three and a half years, was
a very prominent member of the J.B.
A. A., working as he did on thc Managing Committee, House Committee and
being chairman of the Tennis Committee. He rowed in the senior fours' boat
on May 24th, when thc club was successful in obtaining the championship
of British Columbia, but he has received
strict injunctions not to give away the
fatuous Dan Sullivan stroke, which is
so coveted by the oarsmen of the Terminal City. His departure will be a
real loss to the club, but one and all
join in wishing him every possible success in his new surroundings.
The lacrosse match on Wednesday

Centrals resulted in a win for the former by 10—2. Tbis means that each loam

A Bear Story.
A gentleman visiting a minister was
askedi to attend his host's Sunday school
and address a few remarks to the chil
dren. He took the familiar theme of
the children who mocked Elijah on his
journel to Bethel—how the youngsters taunted the poor old prophet, and
how they were punished when two she
bears came out of the woods and ate
forty and two of them. "And now children," said the speaker, wishing to learn
if his talk hadi proudced any moral effect, "what does this story show?"
"Please sir," came from a little girl
down in front, "it shows how many
children two she bears can hold."—

in the car at the time of any faux pas
or not. In point of fact in the case of
a proved charge of over-fast driving
the owner, together with the man at the
wheel, has to pay a fine for the first offence; for the second he has to endure
the horrors of gaol for tlle period of
one month; if found guilty a third time
twelve months of his happy life-time
have to be spent in confinement. That
is the English law, and it is enforced
as much in the interests of automobile
owners and maufacturers, as of the general public. It is a disgraceful thing
that an industry which, although almost
in its infancy, is so universally acknowledged to be the parent of coming means
of locomotion, should be at the mercy
of half-trained and wholly idiotic lunatics, who by their crazy ideas of what
they think is a fine "show-off," make
this form of vehicular traffic unpopular
where there is no necessity. B. Combe
was charged this week by Arthur Davis
witli dtiving at a furious rate on the
Dnllas Koad, to the danger of the public. This is the second time that this
gentleman has appeared to answor a
similar charge. Unfortunately Mr.
Javis was unable to swear absolutely to
the face of Combe, as he was travelling
too fast, but he was prepared to swear
fn ihe car. As a result of the speed
Dr. Hart, in order to avoid the mad
m*!i, ran over a dog in his attempt to
ge: out of the way; Combe reappeared
to see what had happened; Davis recognised thc car, but as he was not in a
position to affirm on oath that Combe
was the driver who had just passed, the
case, was dismissed. From this it would
appear that owing to legal technicalities Combe escaped a justly earned pen-
■ilty. It cannot be too strongly urged
upon the owners and manufacturers oi
these intensely useful andl agreeable machines that it is to their interest to see
that their employees possess some kind
of common-sense, and that if they make
1 mistake and entrust a car to a hotheaded record-breaker the law should
slop in and impress on them the desirability of not making such errors in the
Let's have another quotation. "And
things are not what they seem." This
applies to the extraordinary case of
Mr. Martin. Anyone reading the report
of this gentleman's appearance in the
police court to answer a charge of fighting in the public streets would imagine
ihat be was a brawler of the worst type.
The Lounger likes to see justice done,
and if he roasts, he also makes a point
of putting the ice in when required. Thc
facts are these. At a club, not a hundred! miles away from Fort Street, Mr.
Martin and two "gentlemen" (sic) bad
:in argument, One of these so-called
gentlemen is a sprig of the nobility; the
other is an ex-jnurnalist who made
himself conspicuous with regard to the
Oak Bay golf-links transfer. The argument was heated, and led to an adjournment outside. Here the two set
on Mr. Martin, who is a much smaller
man than either of them; forced him
down nn the pavement, where they battered his head against the cement; one
held him while the other hit; on the
apprnach nf the pnlice the two gallant
heroes retreated at discretion, audi left
Martin to lire tender mercies of the
patrol waggon. That is thc true stale
of affairs. Personally I have no hesitation in saying that T wnuld rather be
in Martin's shoes, even with the $15
li'"' tl.rown in, than feel myself to he
a despicable sort nf cad.
Meet me at the races nn Saturday nr
Monday; I have heaps nf things In tell.
The races promise to be rather above
thc average, and should draw a goodly
crowd. The Lounger wil be in possession nf several tips, which he will pari
with   fnr  a consideration.
Exchanges With Our Kindred-
Hands Across the Sea
Pince Nez or Monocle.
The Liverpool Post tells this story of
Mr. Chamberlain: Some twenty years
years ago, when the ex-Colonial Secretary—then in the forties—occupied the
post of President of the Board of Trade
in the Gladstone Cabinet of the day,
he suddenly appeared in the House of
Commons in decorous pince-nez. Whether lhe frailty of single eye-glass ap
pcarcd to him to be out of place in the
case of a Cabinet Minister, or whether
he was simply assaying an experiment,
no one knoweth. The almost stupefied
House, however, was not long confronted! with this unusual spectacle. After
a brief struggle with his new optical
glass, the right hon. gentleman reverted
as suddenly to his old love, to which he
he has remained constant ever since.
Lord Wolseley's Career.
Few men have had a more exciting
career than Field-Marshall Lord Wolseley, who on Monday celebrated! his
73rd birthday, and who now lives over
again the stirring scenes of his strenuous life amid the solitudes of Hampton
Court. For his services, which form a
brilliant passage in the records of the
British Army, he has been thrice thanked by Parliament, and enjoys the honor
of being one of the only three men who
were ever toasted by the late Queen
Victoria. This was at Balmoral after
his return from Egypt, when her Maj
esty congratulated him on his "glorious
and well-deserved success." Lord Wol
seley, like Lord Roberts, has no son to
succeed him, andi the title will pass to
his only child, the Hon. Frances Wolse
ley, by special remainder.
A Real Spook.
There is a riverside house in the south
western district of London which might
repay the attention of the Psychical
Research Society, says the Tribune. A
few weeks ago it was tenanted by a very
distinguished judge. After his death,
the new tenant—who did not know the
judge—was sitting one late winter afternoon in his study when (so the story
runs) he was startled by a voice ex
claiming, "What are you doing here in
my study? And sitting in the dark!
I did not ask you to come." It was the
judge, who did not know that he was
dead. He has since, however, found out
his mistake, and he frequently puts in a
friendly  visit.

The Panama Hat.
The panama hat, once the pride of
every youth with the slightest claim
to be fashionable, has had its day, and
its possession no longer sets the crowning seal on the summer "swell." Like
many other fashions, the panama has
been killed by popularity, and the consequent imitation of the genuine article.
At the seaside, nn the river, and in the
country, nn Innger are the panamas to
be counted by hundreds, but only in
solitary "ones." Three years ago, when
the panama boom was at its height, women appropriated the panama, and no
"river girl" was complete without one.
This season, it is quite the exception
tn meet any young woman in anything
so informal, Directly Tnm, Dick, and
Harry secured cheap imitations of Ihe
real article, the people who wished tn
pay from Iwn to five guineas for the
distinguished shape, ceased tn buy it. "T
have snid very few panamas this year,"
said a well known Bond street hatter to
an Evening News representative. "At
nne time. I snid them in dozens a day,
but now thc demand fnr the dearer
article seems alinnst to have ceased.
The latest novelty is a felt hat', made in
straw shape, and the greatest run is on
thc straw hat of the style women call
the sailnr." Panama hats will perhaps
retain their popularity, for fashions run
in cycles. Tt is a fact, however, that
they dn nnt suit many penple, and they
nre little better than useless unless you
pay a gnnd price."

Around the Capital City the air has
been decidedly sulphurous during the
past week, and casuals like Bohemian
have found it no easy task to secure a
quiet spot where a man of unconventional tastes, and more or less playful
tendencies could smoke his cigarette
and chat about unconsidered trifles. The
conditions complained of are due mainly
to the escape of political gas in a particularly noxious and offensive form.
The comedy has been played pretty low
down, and the manufacturers of shoddy
news and slanderous epithets have been
hard pressed to maintain the consistent
vulgarity of their effusions. Innocent
of any political experience or knowledge
I was at first scared into thinking that
the scribbling gentlemen really believed
that there was a modicum of truth in
.their utterances; I have since learned
that this is all in the game, and is only
intended to be taken seriously by ten-
derfeet like myself. Bye and bye I
hope to be able to adjust my view point
to the somewhat novel and exasperating
conditions; meanwhile I join in the fervent wish of all Bohemians that the
storm may clear the air, so that we may
at least have breathing space minus
Victoria has been charged with being
a non-musical city; the imputation was
foolish and easily disproved. The recent performance of the Arion Club,
and the splendid success attending the
highest class musical entertainments
held here for many years, have removed
that reproach. I have heard it stated
in select circles that Victoria is not appreciative of art in other forms, and
the lack of a public picture gallery in
a city of its age and importance might
lend color to the charge. This week,
however, any doubts which one may
have had on the subject have been dispelled by an occurrence as impressive as
it was unexpected.
The city authorities in the interests of
high art, and in order to encourage
the study of the masterpieces of mo'd-
em painters have caused a splendid
specimen of waler color work to be displayed at James Bay causeway. The
canvas is large, probably 12 ft. by io fl.
It portrays a touching episode in Western life. Two gentlemen of the road,
clad in the remnants of picturesque
habiliments are comparing notes on the
excellence of a specific, the application
of which is calculated to recall the memory of the immortal dreamer of Bedford. As these latter day pilgrims make
their progress under difficulties over the
railroad tics they chuckle at the efficacy
of the remedy which to judge from their
cheerful faces makes life a joy, and toil a
pleasure. Needless to say tlie other details of the landscape are filled in with
equal fidelity and beauty, and a colored
blue-jay gazes with rapid outline upon
the touching scene. Thousands of passers-by pause to stare at thc masterpiece,
:ind to pay their tribute to such a noble
example of imported art. I have vainly
endeavored to procure a duplicate for
my own studio, and 1 am therefore unable to invite my friends to study it,
unobserved by the vulgar gaze of the
multitude, but it still  decorates James
iiay causeway and no doubt Mayor
Morley believes it to be a thing oi
beauty, though not being carved in
stone i fear that it will not remain a
joy forever.
When 1 am not too lazy, or otherwise
when 1 am recovering from a lit oi
laziness, 1 sometimes take a gentle stroll
in thc James Bay section of the city; 1
prefer this section because there are no
hills to climb and the improvements in
roadways and sidewalks are rapidly
making it the most attractive district in
the city. In common with many strollers 1 am looking forward to the time
when Government street will be completed right through to the Dallas road,
forming a line approach to the best marine drive in the West. Just how long
it will take to complete the southerly
extension I don't know, but I am prepared to join in a howl against the manlier in which the section extending from
the Cameron property towards the sea,
has been dealt with by the civic authorities. At the far end a row of posts
has been put in to prevent vehicular
traffic; the end nearest the sea has been
left open, a new sidewalk has been graded between these points, and by a careful measurement the opening at the
south end has been left wide enough to
allow a team passing through. This
nicety of adjustment results in constant
traffic and the ploughing up of the sidewalk. It would cost $2 or less to put in
another post or to remove all the posts,
which would be far more sensible, and
allow the traffic to pass through. Is
it too much to hope tha tthis very modest and inexpensive request may be
complied with.
I have before time had the temerity to
criticize Victorian organizations for
bringing in outsiders to do something
that could be done much better by residents of the city. Just how some artists
get their reputation is a perpetual source
of wonder. Both these reflections are
emphasized by a little incident that occurred in connection with the annual
festival of the Provincial pedagogues.
A. Mr. James Hughes of Toronto was
brought down with a great flourish of
trumpets, and if I mistake not, so great
a draw was he considered that his expenses were generously paid. He talked
Education and gave a desultory chat on Dickens devoid of
literary merit, or originality, but
after all this grand-stand plav for
some reason which neither he nor the
officials of the convention saw fit to announce he returned unexpectedly, before the chief perfomance took place.
As far as one can judge there is no reason to regret this amusing denouement,
a conclusion which may be fairly deduced by the experienced observer, and
set forth in an aphorism not unlike those
to be found in the Pilgrim's scrip, so
dear to the heart of Meredith's hero; il
would run thus: "When men call thee
conreited, and women say thou lookest
well on the platform, it is time to gel
(by hair cut."

By G. de S. W.
But for golf and Tim's incipient tendency towards spending quite as much
as he earned, I should have heen happy
—really happy; which is a great deal
to say in this world of disillusionments
and vain longings.
Certainly the rent of our house was
only £50 per annum, whereas that of
my dearest friend's exceeded £i,ooo.
But this didn't matter, seeing we had
everything which two average sort of
young people under twenty-five could
There was a stove in the hall (a dear
thing, unless one tried lo kindle a fire),
electric light everywhere, except in lhe
kitchen and servants' bedroom—where,
for economy, I bad insisted upon having gas (nobody knew about thc penny-
in-the-slot automatic meter fixed under
thc stairs, so no prestige was lost by
that!), white over-mantels, divine
friezes, bewildering dados (storks and
bulrushes—so sweet!); and, in fact,
everything that could come under the
bead  of "modern conveniences."
Ellen an.it Ethel, too, were treasures.
They  were  so  useful   in   preventing
joints from lasting too long, and one of
them had been under housemaid in a
titled family. I was very pleased when,
in moments of forgetfulness, she called
me "my lady" instead of "Madam," and
she usually happend to do this when I
was pointing out dust in the corners.
Yes, everything in its little way was
ideal, except for Tim's golf, and extravagant tendencies. Certainly it was
very good of him to let me take charge
of his cheque book, so that I knew he
could never spend more than a sovereign without my being aware of the
fact; but he was too fond of asking
for that said elongated volume in order
to fill up various amounts owing to
"pros," athletic outfitters, or some fiendish firm who had just invented! a new
3s. rubber-cored ball!
Of course, I couldn't say anything (at
least, not much), but it worried me,
and would, in time, bring wrinkles and
lines to my face, I felt convinced.
One evening, when we were sitting
down for a cosy after-dinner cigarette
and chat, I noticed a certain restlessness, combined with forcedi geniality, in
my husband's manner—symptoms with
which I was somewhat familiar, seeing
they usually presaged a request that I'd
"just—er—bring down the cheque-book
when I happened to be coming."
"By Jove! She's getting a fine puss,
isn't she! Never saw a glossier coat!"
said Tim, commencing a well-tried
method of propitiation, as he stooped
and stroked Ween's ebony back.
"I think, dear, I should be more inclined to call her a dainty puss," I answered, a little coldly.
''Well, yes; you're right—she is more
—er—dainty. (Hullo! pussling, come
along, old girl. There's a beauty!) It's
feeding and tree-climbing that keeps
her so fit. Nothing like open-air exercise for beast—and man!"
(Ah! He was leading up to it!
Would it be "Haskell's" or "kites" this
"Yes,  exercise  and—ah!   by-the-bye,
speaking of exercise, that reminds me!"
"Does it, dear?"
"Yes;   reminds  me  about  a  unique
opportunity that's just been put in my
way.   You know they're opening a new
—er—ahem!—a    new    golf    club    at
Rambler's Green?"
"I've heard you mention it—yes?"
"Well, I saw tiie secretary the other
day, and he tells me that members who
join immediately can get  in  for two
and three."
"Two and three?"
"Two pounds two shillings entrance
fee, and three pounds three shillings
subscription!    Marvellous, isn't it?"
"I suppose it is; but it doesn't interest you, dear, does it? You've got your
Northfields Park Club, andi that's all
you   want,   isn't  it?      By-the-bye,    to
change the conversation, did ?"
"But don't let's change it for one
moment, darling. I—I want to discuss
this little matter of the Rambler's Green
Club with you. I really think I had
better join. You see, it's far better to
belong to more than one, for—for many
reasons, and I told Billson—the secretary—.that he could put me up for
membership. In fact he has put me up,
and the subscription is due; so if you'll
be a pet, and fetch my ch "
"Then Mr. Billson can just take you
down again!" I interrupted, with one
of my rare bursts of real temper.
"You've paidi £6 6s. and £8 8s. for the
Northfields  club,   and  I   simply   won't
countenance "
At this juncture the door opened, and
Ethel entered the room, her face wearing the special look of vacancy which
it always assumed when she had overheard any fragments of marital discussion.
"The post, madam—just come," she
said, handing me a small packet done
up in brown paper, registered, and
"Whatever's this? Who can it be
from?" I ejaculated, with friendly communicativeness, quite forgetting that
we were in the middle of a disagreement.
Tim only grunted, but when I opened the packet and displayed a case containing a large gold coin, about the size
of a penny, he likewise overlooked our
temporarily strained relations, audi
showed signs of enthusiasm
mitted my features to soften; and then
—well, then we forgot all about the
£5-piece lying in its case on the mantel-piece, al labout the golf club, and,
in fact, all about everything except ourselves. We still have a way of doing
that sort of thing, though now we have
been married quite ten months, and—
Oh! it's very sweet!
After this nothing more was sairl
about the Rambler's Green Club, and
if it hadl not been for a grim and terrible reminder whicfi confronted m^
three days later, I should have forgotten the incident altogether.
But that was not to be—there could
be no forgetfulness when, on looking
over Tim's coats to see that they were
properly brushed, and that no buttons
were missing, I came face to face with
the cruel, treacherous truth!
There it was, lying face upwards on
the floor, just as it had fallen from his
pocket. I couldn't help seeing it, and
reading the frustrating printed and
written words:
"Received of T. Osmond, Esq., the
sum of is 5s., being original member's
subscription and entrance fee to the
Rambler's Green Golf Club. Dated
the 8th day of May, 1906."
With hands that trembled I raised
the incriminating document, and replaced it in his pocket.
The 8th of May—and this was the
Thus, two days after I had refused to
give him his cheque book, he must have
secured £5 ss., and paid the subscription.    Heart-rending!
And how could he hare got hold of
the money?
That he hadn't more than 18s. loose
cash in his pocket I felt sure, and it
was unlikely that he would have grovelled so low as to borrow!
Could it be that he had paw Oh!
no, never; never that!
Weary with the weight of lost illusions, I descended the stairs and entered the idirawing-room, in order to commence my daily task of dusting the
specially special ornaments which could
not be trusted to Ethel's somewhat
boisterous care.
Mechanically I removed specks from
the faces of smiling, happy, Dresden
china people, polished silver frames surrounding photographs of my richest and
most celebrated friends (the others I
kept in an album), and blew puffs 0?
wind over the ivory carved chessmen.
Then I caught sight of the case containing the fs-piece.
How foolish of me! I hadl forgotten
to put it in the little corner cabinet
which was devoted to odds and ends
—unmounted amethysts, Florentine
enamel  work,   etc.      That's  where    I
would keep it, and	
Here my designs came to a sudden
jolting and unnerving halt—(like when
the break is applied to a District Railway electric train), and my thoughts
(as in the case of passengers), were
hurled! one on the top of another in
struggling  chaotic  confusion.
I could understand nothing, think
nothing, except that the small velvet-
lined case was empty, and that the £5-
piece had gone!
Not for one instant did I dream of
suspecting the servants, because I was
absolutely assured! that their honesty
was as supreme as their appetite and
lack of reasoning power.
There was no one whom I mentally
charged with the offence except my own
Cruel evidence was so absolutely
against him. He had wanted £5—£5
was not forthcoming—and yet upstairs
was a receipt showing that sum had
been paid!
Yes, without doubt Tim had succumbed to the insidious voice of Temptation, who had whispered in his ear:
"Take the £5-picce. Dennice will only
keep it idle and useless in her cabinet!
She'll forgive you when once you've
done it! Think of the Rambler's Green
hazards! the best round London! In
another three months the fees will be
doubled. Take th!e opportunity, and
take the £s-piece!"
That is what Temptation had said to
the man who held all my heart; and
the words had not been whispered in

entered the house, instead of being Tim,

the stairs.    _^^^^^^^^__
"Oh! delay is even worse than th«J

rule great progress  in  Canada since any part of their lives at the wide otit-
Irtli courts have become popular; thc posts 0f Greater Britain,  in the  fast
nesses of the Himalayas or on the long
reaches of the Western prairies over
which the bugle call comes with an added
note of heartening. The movement for the
enrolling of such a body is one that deserves all the support that can be given
it by soldier or civilian. Many a young
man in Vancouver, who has served a
rough apprenticeship in the workshop
of Mars welcomes the possibility of
forming one of such a worldwide regiment and would do his utmost to raise
its name to the level reached by those
gallant riders of the plains ,the Royal
North-West Mounted Police, and similar workmanlike aggregations, who say
little but achieve much. By their silent
alertness along the confines of the
King's Dominions beyond the seas such
a check might be kept on the King's
foes as would vastly aid the work of that
great machine, the British Regular
Army, and act as the eye and ear to a
corporate force which alas 1 has been
proved to be often lacking in those
finer sensibilities. The existence of a
Legion of Frontiersmen four years ago
would have saved many a gallant life
in South Africa; have kept secure from
the oubliette of obloquy many a historic
name, and would have brought to a
close in as many months a war that
dragged on through three dreary years.

Dear Madge:—
Summer days and summer gowns. If
in the spring a young man's fancy
"turns," in summer it ought to have ar
rived, so bewitching do the girls look
in diaphanous garments and "gay attire"
like the tulips of the early Victorian
poet. Imagine for instance a dark girl
of radiant beauty adorned in a little
white chiffon gown, patterned with a
faint grey check with a wee blurred
nosegay printed at intervals in Wattealt
colorings. Thc skirt is adorned with
zigzag strappings of old rose silk piped
with black, lhe same coloring being repeated in the belt, which is unusually
deep in front, forming a pronounced
These contrasting strappings are quite
a feature just now, but it is a foregone
conclusion that one of them must be
black. Another pretty gown which to
sec is to covet is of saxe-bltte; it has a
fascinating pinafore effect with a
"tucker" of tan silk to match, while the
buttons and accessories have been
charmingly embroidered. Sleeves and
chemisette are of lace dyed to the exact
shade of blue, a touch of white lace at
the neck offering a concession to the
average complexion, for it must be confessed that the prevailing shades of
blue—lovely as (hey are—have a tendency to make any but (he mos( glowing
skins appear pale.
Voile, like poverty, is ever with us.
We have -rung thc changes for several
seasons past on woollen voile, silk voile,
cotton voile, and now chiffon voile with
its exquisite delicacy of texture and the
lightest and airiest of designs has
come it would seem to put to shame
the prettiest of muslins. Of the sleeves
of thc moment it may assuredly be said
that their form is legion and adapted to
the requirements of all tastes and shoulders. The short sleeve continues in
favor and reaches just above the elbow
an inch or two below. By the way a
useful bit of information is that West-
cott Bros, on Yates street have a large
stock of black silk gbves, the demand
for which daily increases, owing to the
ever popular "short sleeve."
Open bookshelves are the ideal for the
worker. But there is one great objection—dust. In buying book cases it is
well to avoid those with the top shelf
having a piece extending across the upper part, so that the books have to be
placed sideways to get them on the slHf
which, when full, makes it a difficult
feat to get a volume down singly. Projections at each end of thc shelf which
allow a volume to be hidden behind
them are a source of trouble to the
busy reader. Modern literary appliances
are better adapted for the book lovers'
requirements than anything old-fashioned.
Apropos Weiler Bros, have a splendid
stock of book cases, and book shelves,
in every shape and form, and in rearranging a silting room or library it
often improves such rooms immensely
to have a good book case, rows of books
present such a comforting appearance.
It is allowed by all admiring foreigners that tbe Briton is very fond of his
bath, but there was a time, T am told,
when soap was the luxury of the "well-
to-do," and as recently as 1853, or
thereabouts, the duly on that commodity
was enormous. Times have happily
changed since then, as the great soap
industries of the country amply testify.
We are now able to obtain the finest
bath sponges and the daintiest of perfumes at reasonable prices. A visit to
Cyrus 11. Bowes, the popular chemist,
will soon convince you of this.
The value of "Jap-a-lac" as a combined polish and sanitary solution for
wooden floors has been already conclusively proved on many occasions, but
its recognition for ordinary household
use is not yet so general as it deserves
to be. Many modern housekeepers, although they realize that polished wooden floors are fnr more hygienic and artistic thnn those covered with carpets,
Have hitherto been deterred from ndinpt-
inc them by reason of the labor they involve, but now "Jap-a-lac" has come to
the rescue and solved the whole prob
lem.    Mellor Bros, are the sole agents
for this splendid polish.
As time goes on more and more delicate, dainty and charming are the jewels on view at Challoner & Mitchell's.
One would have thought that the last
word had been said about the exquisite
intricacies of gem-setting in the beautiful baubles shown by this firm, but
fresh fields of fortune are being opened
up by the novelty and charm of their
enamels in combination with gold and
jewels. Take for example necklaces
and brooches which in design and execution arc worthy of the most famous
craftsmen in the modern or mediaeval
The ideal cottage, though more rare
than of old, before motors were and
when the adventurous city man contented his with a suburban villa, is
still to be found. A friend has just
showed me the plans of a cottage with
dormer windows here and lattice panes
there, three feet thick walls, and real
panelled oak. For the situation I suggested that Fairfield estate, where one
can pick up a two acre lot with the most
ideal surroundings and where Nature
may be cultivated at leisure and pleasure with the most successful results.
Daring and enterprising as motor-car
outfitters are they have not ventured to
popularise a respirator for the motorist's use, and yet quite a number of
people have been inquiring about these
articles. The appearance of a motorist
with a pair of goggles is hideous
enough in soolh, but what would it be
if in addition he had another uncanny
contrivance over his nostrils and mouth
so as to check the ingress of dust? The
comments of the small boys and other
wayside critics would be much too severe for delicate ears. The use of a
respirator presents many difficulties,
and in lhe case of a driver would nol
be au regie as it would prevent him
from speaking. Paradoxically, for the
same reason the respirator might be an
advantage if worn by some of the passengers.

On Wednesday, 20th inst., the wedding took place at New Westminster of
Miss Helen Clute, fifth daughter of Mr.
J. S. Clute, Inspector of M. M. Customs, to Mr. Stanley Mainwaring-Johnson, this city. The ceremony took place
at 2.30 p.m. at St. Barnabas' Church,
and was performed by the Rev. C. W.
Houghton, rector of the parish. The
bride entered the church on the arm of
her father, Miss Doris Clute and Miss
Elwena Martin acting as bridesmaids,
the groom being supported by Mr. Wcl-
land Gordon. The ushers were Mr. G.
B. Corbould and Mr. Gerard Clute.
Tbe bride's gown was of liberty satin
witb bcrtbe of Brussels point lace, with
the regulation wedding veil and orange
blossoms. The maid of honor, Miss
Doris Clute, was gowned in blue organdie trimmed with lace, and wore a white
lingerie hat, while thc bridesmaid wore
a dainty white organdie and white lingerie hat. The bride's mother's gown
was of spangled grenadine trimmed with
real lace. Only relations and intimate
friends of the bride were present, and
at' tbe close nf the ceremony all drove
to 'Fairvicw," the residence of the
bride's parents, where an informal reception wns held. Mrs, Johnson, mother

Mrs. Beauchamp Tye's gown was of

The presents were numerous nnd
costly, mutely testifying to the popularity of bride nnd groom. At five o'clock
the happy couple left for the Sound

hief Watson and his capable band of
irfornrers are to be congratulated on

\t being inclined to side with the en-
usiasts who    place him   among the
eatest actors of his time, it must be
needed that he is a thorough and fin7

Next Tuesday Henrietta Crosman will
ipear at the Victoria Theatre in Mary,
!ary, Quite Contrary. This talented
:ress is always worth seeing, and may
irly be classed with the half-dozen
?st actresses on  the  American  stage.
Ihe piece which she has selected for
csentation in Victoria is identified
ith one of her greatest" successes,
living attracted crowded houses in New
Jork during a long run. There is little
pubt that thc talented lady will revive generous support on her appear-
nce here. Apart from her established
bsition on the stage, there are circtim-
[anccs which tend to make her a popu-
Ir favorite. Born of rich parents and
tared in the lap of luxury, she found
prself at an early age plunged into
fcverty. Falling back on her own re-
lurces she cultivated her beautiful
pice with the intention of becoming an
peratic singer. When her training
as almost completed she strained her
Iiice and it was for ever ruined.. Such
catastrophe would have caused most
rls to despair; not so Miss Crosman,
ho at once devoted herself to dramatic
bdy, and in order to obtain the neces-
ry funds to complete her course
ilized her artistic gift of painting and
ised the money. Once upon the stage

who in the pursuit of his duties has entered vaudeville life in order to obtain
subject matter for his sketches. His
drawings are wonderfully good, and a
visit to the Grand is well repaid, if only
by the turn which he does. The other
features are all good, a particularly attractive show being given by Ada Hamilton and Company, who put on a small
Mexican* drama. Miss Ordell has a
fine voice, which is rarely heard! on the
vaudeville stage.
Next week the draw card will be

a large and appreciative audience.
