At the commencement of its seventh
ilyear of publication  the  Editor  of  The
[jWeek extends   the   heartiest   Christmas
(greetings to its readers and wishes them
all the peace ancl joy wliieh the season affords.   Thanks are clue for much kindness
eand forbearance; also for much appreciation ancl recognition.    Not for the first
lime this paper asks forgiveness for any
('unkind words which may have crept into
its columns, ancl begs to assure those Avhose
.public acts it may have felt called upon to

und that, at this time especially, the goodwill of all men is sincerely desired.
\Wm ANNUAL
j* Once a year, just about Christmas time,
ji A'ery well printed, good-looking sheet appears in Victoria. It changes its name,
nut it voices the same sentiments year by
;|ear and obviously speaks for the same
This
it calls itself "The
Jieople.    lins year      ^_^^^^________
Citizen," ancl claims to be the organ of the
Local Option   party.    It commenced  by
{gating itself from the Y. M. C. A. rooms,
|nit at the urgent request of some of the
[upporters of that noble institution, fin-
|*.lly drifted to an office in Yates Street.
The last number Avas a well-Avritten, care-
lully edited production; it did not con-
jlain one offensh'e expression, Avhich is a re-
Hiarkable thing for an organ of this class.
The Week believes that it Avould be an ex-
|ellent thing if this little paper could revive sufficient financial support to secure
iiiblication Aveekly because it is quite certain that no other paper will advocate the
{ifieAVS it sets forth, ancl as it aims at doing
[goocl, although, as The Week belieA'es, in a
imistaken manner, it Avould be a not unmixed evil for the cause of true reform if
it-iie fanatics could have the opportunity of
(Continually stating their case.    Tavo niat-
1 ters are mentioned in the issue referred to
J upon Avhich The Week wishes, to .comment,
even at the cost of giving a gratuitous advertisement to the paper.    The first is a
complaint that the daily papers will not
publish the speeches of the great men avIio
-take the platform in the NeAV Grand Theatre on Sunday afternoon, of Avhom Dr.
Ernest Hall may be considered the high-
■| priest ancl Mr. Hinkson Sidall the acolyte.
The comment of The AVeek is that if the
speeches referred to are of such vast importance, it is rather remarkable that the
"Citizen" refrains from publishing them;
it is not incumbent upon the daily papers
to do so; it surely is incumbent upon the
organ of the party for whom these men
speak.    Having listened to last Sunday's
deliverances The Week is prepared to assert   that   any   paper   publishing   those
speeches verbatim Avould meet with the
same fate as overtook the "Fruits of Philosophy"   about,   thirty  years   ago,  Avhen
Charles Bradlaugh and Mrs. Annie Be-
sant were sentenced to twelve months imprisonment for an offence "against public morals."   The other matter mentioned
in ' The  Citizen"  to  which   The   Week
Avould refer is the statement that there is
jplenty of room in Victoria for another
Jnewspaper, independent in character.    If
this is an academic proposition The AVeek
assents, for it Avould be very easy to show,
although  "The  Citizen"  does not  even
mriake the attempt, that the present, daily
press consistently ignores important matters and important news for reasons Avhich
cannot be too closely examined into; but
'is a commercial proposition an independ-
!
nt daily is an anachronism, the latest at-
empt cost its backer. more than half-a-
nillion dpllars and finally climbed off the
'ence intoa political fold. What tlie 'To*-,
onto Daily NeAvs failed to do Avith the
financial backing of AA7. F. Flavelle ancl the
editing of the leading Canadian journalist,
J. S. Willison, is not likely to be successfully achieved in A'ictoria.
THE MAYORALTY
The friends of ex-Alderman Alec SteAvart are urging him to accept a nomination
for the Mayoralty. The AVeek A\'ould
strongly second the appeal on the grounds
that Mr. SteAvart is an old-timer, one of
the most respected of A^ictoria's citizens,
a man of the highest integrity, fair-minded ancl the last to sIioav partiality to any
section of the community. If Mr. SteAvart Avere mayor every man Avould get "a
square deal" and, having no axe of his
own to grind, the City Avould be sure of securing a Chief Magistrate Avho would haA'e
a single eye to its prosperity ancl adA'ance-
ment. Tliere may be difficulties in the Avay,
many of Avhich haA'e been created by the
vagaries of tiie present incumbent of the
office. It is indeed a thankless task to take
hold of the reins of civic management and
endeavour to put things into shape. Only
a strong man can do it, and a man can
only be strong Avhen he is backed by public
sentiment on the outside ancl by a solidarity on the inside. The present Mayor has
never been able to secure either, and for
that reason a crisis has been precipitated
Avhich must be dealt with competently, or
the City will suffer for many years to
come. No doubt, Mr. SteAvart feels a natural disinclination to sacrifice his personal
interests ancl to tackle a difficult problem,
but, if lie sees his Avay to accede to tlie request of his felloAv-citizens, he will lay
Arictoria under a deep obligation and Avill
assuredly receive popular support.
LOCAL OPTION
Local Option, or, to be more accurate,
the Scott* Act has been defeated in Prince
Rupert and Chilliwack. The A'otc iii the
former Avas very decisive, shoAving a majority of 103 in a total A'ote of less than.
500, and practically reversing the plebiscite figures of a year ago. The latter gave
a small but unquestioned majority, and
that in a rural district which Avas generally expected to be favourable to the Scott
Act. Dr. Spencer, the Secretary of the
Local Option League, declined to make
any statement on the result of the polling,
until he had taken several days to think
the matter over. AVhen he did speak the
only excuse lie offered Avas that the real
issue had been "side-tracked" and that the
question had been made a political one,
that of support or of opposition to the
Provincial Government. Being Christmas
time, this statement may perhaps be characterised as 'Svide of the mark." It is singularly inapposite, coming from the representative of, an organization which,
throughout the campaign, did its best to
convince the electorate that Local Option
and the Scott Act Avere one and the same
tiling. The AVeek is in a position to vouch
that not a single, political allusion Avas
made at Prince Rupert during the whole
of the campaign; indeed, the bare suggestion speaks poorly for the intelligence of
those avIio make it, since thc opponents of
the Scott Act Avere appealing to men of
both political parties and any attempt to
make a political issue would have created
a split. Many causes contributed to the
defeat of Dr. Spencer and his friends,
but the principal one Avas the reasonable
determination of the electorate to give a
fair trial to the Provincial Liquor Licence Act before trusting themselves to the
tender mercies of one which had failed
Avherever it had been tested. This determination Avas unquestionably strengthened ,n.Y tlie splendid record of enforcement,
which the supporters of  the   Provincial.
Act Avere able to sIioav. WitliiTT'luin lUUliuis
tliere had been over tAventy convictions,
aggregating many thousands of dollars in
fines and there had been over seventy refusals of neAV licenses and cancellations of
old ones. The comment in almost every
instance being "not in the public interest."
In vieAV of such a mass of evidence it aviis
impossible to argue that the Act Avas not
being, ancl would not be, enforced. It was
equally impossible to infer that such drastic enforcement would not lead to suppression of the greatest evils of the drink
traffic. This attitude of the public is one
Avith which it is impossible to find fault.
EA'en the Scott Act devotees should realise
that their only hope of success lies in creating similar confidence in the public
mind. Although the Scott Act contains
many objectionable features, some distinctly un-British ancl unfair, The AA'eek
does not hesitate to say that whenever it
can show a record of enforcements at all
on a par wi th those standing to the credit
of the neAV Provincial Act, it will at least
have over-come the initial difficulty of commending itself to the suffrages of the jieople. Meanwhile, so emphatic a pronouncement in favour of a licensing laAv as opposed to Prohibition in any form is a
warning to those engaged _n the trade to
set their house in order ancl co-operate with
the Government iri enforcing the laAv. This
is the stand which The AA7eek has consistently adopted since its first issue, and it
repeats to-day what it has said before, that
the greatest, enemies of the liquor trade
are not. those avIio attack it from Avithout,
but those Avho are recreant to tlieir cluties
and responsibilities within.
RUGBY FOOTBALL
The AVeek directs attention to the series
of Rugby matches to be played on the
Oak Bay Grounds during the next ten
days. These matches are to decide the
ownership of the McKechnie Cup for the
ensuing year, and the credit of Victoria
as well as of the local team is at stake.
The men avIio have come from Berkeley
University are all first-class exponents of
the game and sonic of them stars. Undoubtedly the local team Avill have all its
Avork cut out to Avin. Since the English
Rugby game Avas introduced into California the various University teams have
abandoned the American game in its favour ancl have practised with an assiduity
which has made them both expert and formidable. The right to defend the McKechnie Cup aviis gained by the A'ictoria
team Avhen they defeated Vancouver last
season. The committee has had to put up
a A'ery heavy guarantee, which with local
expenses Avill reach the sum of $2,000. A
minimum of 1,000 people at each match
Avill cover tllis and The AVeek strongly
urges the public.to turn out, both to encourage the best Rugby team A'ictoria has
had for many years, and to prevent the
committee from sustaining loss. AVhat-
CA'cr the result, the spectators are bound to
ha\'c their money's worth.
THE BRITISH ELECTIONS
The British Elections are o\'cr and the
result is practically "as you were," although to be technically correct the Unionist party Avill have a majority of two over
the Liberals in the next Parliament,
Avhereas in the last* the .numbers wcre
equal. Less than a month ago, Avhen discussing the forth-coming elections The
AA'eek expressed the opinion that dissolution Avas a mistake, that there was no legitimate pretext for appealing to the
country and that the result Avould be the
return of Mr. Asquith to power by a
slightly reduced majority. It also said
that tiiis Avould leave the balance of power
still in the hands of Mr. Redmond ancl the
Irish -Nationalists. Hoav accurate this forecast Avas our readers can judge for themselves. AVhat are the lessons of the contest . Undoubtedly that there is no inarked
hostility in the country to the House of
Lords. The acceptance by the Upper
Chamber of Lord Kosebery's Resolutions,
eliminating the hereditary principle as
applied to the whole of the House, and
substituting elective clauses, is as radical
a measure as the people of the United
Kingdom are prepared for, and when it is
remembered that it is more than twenty
years since Lord Rosebery, then the leading Liberal Peer, introduced these Resolutions and found practically no support,
it Avill be realised Iioav slowly and surely
the march of constitutional amendment
proceeds in the Old Country. In the opinion of The AA'eek the acceptance of these
Resolutions by the House of Lords disposes of the question of the "A'eto." The
Government has certainly received no mandate on this subject unless it bc to leaA'e
it alone. The next trouble on tlieir hands
will be to settle accounts Avith Mr. Redmond, ancl this is where the "veto" pinch
conies in. He knows perfectly well, and
the Government knows, that the House of
Lords Avill never give Ireland the kind of
Home Rule which the Nationalists still
demand; and yet this alone can be the
price of Mr. Redmond's support. On the
straight issue of Home Rule the constituencies haA'e but one answer and it would
be repeated just as emphatically in 1911
as every time it has been propounded since
188.6. This is why the country Avill sustain the Lords in their power to A'eto, and
why in the opinion of The AA'eek, Mr. Asquith will find it impossible to do more in
the next Parliament than he did in the
last, deal with the Budget and -arrange for
finances. Any question of intervention by
the King, or creation of 500 peers to
swamp the House of Lords is.as ridiculous
as it Avould be unconstitutional, despite the
assertions to the contrary by many American and two Canadian newspapers.
THE HOSPITAL BOARD
The AA'eek has no intention of interfering in the controversy which Mrs. Hasell
and Alderman Sargison are conducting in
the columns of The Colonist with such
marked courtesy. It, however, begs permission to say a word on the not unseasonable subject of "good cheer." In the
balance sheet which Mrs. Hasell published
after Alderman Sargison's criticism appeared, it will be noticed that the Ball
Committee had tp pay the management of
the Empress Hotel $1.75 per head for refreshments. The representative of The
AVeek, avIio on this occasion, it being in
lhe cause of charity, paid for his ticket,
and therefore has a right to criticize.
Would respectfully point out that a better
cold collation could be procured at three
up-town restaurants for 75 cents, than the
supper which aviis provided at The Empress; It was a travestie on dance suppers,
as are most of the feeds which the Empress has put up on similar occasions. Of
course, if it is intended that the $1.75
should be classified as 75 cents for supper
and $1 for use of premises, there is nothing more to be said, except thai it would
be fair to let the public know that the
hotel is not being lent for the -.'occasion,
but that it is costing the committee anywhere from $700 to $1,000. The public
is getting tired of these contributions to.
"sweet charity," whicli are, in reality,
commercial transactions of a highly profitable character.

"God rest ye merry gentlemen."
Let no one think that by placing
the above adage at the head of my
column I wish to exclude the ladies
or the dear children from my pious
blessing. Far be it from such; in
particular, I would have every child
as happy as Christmas Day is long; incidentally, I would have him or her
rest peacefully throughout thc livelong night following. But tllis is only a prologue to my expressing my
hope that everybody I know, that
everybody avIio knows me and that
everybody who doesn't know either
of us will have a thoroughly jolly
Christmas, followed a Aveek later by
the beginning- of a prosperous New
Year, such beginning in its turn to be
folloAvcd by a continuance of the
same.
* *   *
And after all Avhy shouldn't wc be
happy. We can all see that the sun
of an era of prosperity has not only
risen above the horizon to shed its
welcome rays over this favoured
Province, but that it it rapidly climbing up towards its zenith. Moreover, the Clerk of the Weather, who has been so unpropitions
of late, has apparently received a
well-timed rebuke, whether from Santa Claus or from Jack Frost I know
not, and at the time of writing has
ordered out the material sun to
cheer the somewhat dampened spirits
of those avIio Avould bc merry devotee's of Father Christmas.
However, even as it is a fact that
in the midst of life Ave are in debt,
according to an old lady of the Mala-
prop persuasion, so it is equally true
that in the midst bf Christmas festivities the Lounger has his weary
dirge to chant and, much as it goes
against the grain, being shackled with
the chains of duty, hc feels it Incumbent upon him to cast the shadow of
pall over a joyous city by reciting
one or two complaints whicii have
reached his unwilling cars. The
Eastern King required a faithful
slave to remind him each morning
that he too Avas mortal. I stand in
the position of the slave and Aveckly
raise my voice to point out the defects of their city to those Avho might
otherwise consider it a Paradise on
earth.

And let us start with orange peel.
Oranges arc a good and Avholcsome
fruit; their peel makes marmalade,
and they are strongly in evidence in
tllis season of the year. But that is
no reason why their exterior coating
should be scattered broadcast upon
the sidewalks. A two-fold vice is
apparent in this practice, viz., extravagance, because the peel might be sold
for a large price to the jam-makers;
and thoughtlessness, because many a
person might spend his Christmas in
bed and many a family rendered miserable, owing to the absence of their
best beloved through a broken leg
caused by tllis same orange peel.
Time ancl again have 1 seen old men
and maidens, young men and children
sauntering down the street, peeling
the golden fruit and dropping the
husks as a trap for the unwary. And
yet these are not alone to blame; it
has been urged on the City Authorities both in these columns and in the
columns of the Daily Press that public receptacles should bc erected at
suitable intervals along the principal
streets. Man on the average is a reasonable being and withal, if his attention bc drawn to the matter, considerate. True it is that there would
still be many who Avould continue to
imperil the limbs of their fellow creatures, but I have a high enough opinion of mankind in general to believe
that a vast majority would gladly
avail themselves of tidily and safely
bestowing their discards Avhere they'
would neither disfigure the street nor
afford a menace to the public.
* *   *
It is ahvays a gratifying thing in
the development of a city to witness
thc    advance    of    advertising    pro
grammes. But there are some advertising schemes at which any respectable city should draAV the line. During the current week Victorians have
been treated to the most disgusting
type of degraded American advertising. An enterprising firm, for, to give
the devil his due, it is enterprising,
and which appears to deal with
"photo-picture-postcards," has imported from the States the hayseed
style of advertising. A Rube, fictitiously drunk or imbecile, has been
seen wandering up and down the
principal streets, grotesquely clad,
waving his umbrella and leering at
the passers-by and the neighboring
windows in a most repulsive manner.
This form of advertising may result
in good business for thc moment, but
it most certainly is not appreciated in
Victoria, and I venture to say that for
every individual who may bc
enticed to patronise the studio, at
least two were kept aAvay.
* *   *
Victoria has had two splendid
Christmas presents. True, she has
had to pay for the one, but she received her money's Avorth. In this
connection I refer to the renovation
of Bastion St. which, after long years
of neglect, has received at the hands
of the Worsfold Paving Company
that attention Avhich Avas deserved in
the legal centre'of the tOAvn. The
other Christmas present is from the
C. P. R. and takes the form of a
brand-new, palatial, single-screAv
steamer, the Princess Adelaide, to
wit, Capt. A. A. Lindgren has brought
a superb vessel fifteen thousand miles
to serve on the Victoria-Vancouver
route, She is a thing of beauty and,
though she cannot be a joy forever,
still, she Avill satisfy the luxurious requirements of the modern generation
until such time as we forsake the sea
as a medium of communication in favour of the air.
# *   *
Complaints have reached me as to
the way in which night is now made
hideous in thc residential portions of
thc city owing to the frequent passage
of automobiles carrying cargoes of
dissolute passengers to houses of ill-
fame. Residents on Rockland Ave.,
Linden Ave. and St. Charles St. are
kept awake by the constant buzzing
of these cars. But Dr. Ernest Hall
told us last Sunday that this was
right and that it yams a good thing
that these houses should be in business in residential parts. He gave as
a reason for this astounding statement that the more advertising they
received from the better class citizen
thc sooner would thc public put doAvn
its foot and stamp out the evil entirely. In this he may be right. Who am
I, a Lounger, to dispute the Avords of
a learned man like Dr. Hall? I won't
dispute them; I'll just venture to disagree and to express my opinion that
in course of itme he will find that
public opinion as expressed by the
residents above referred to, Avill not
result in repression but in segregation. Which is as it ought to be, and
there are few avIio do not agree with

A ROMANCE OF THE SLUMS
"I bet a bob, Sally, that she don't
come." Joe Wackitt took his pipe
from his mouth, put his head a little on one side and looked Avith a
half smile in the face of the girl
standing so near him under the gas
lamp that the folds of her shabby
black skirt touched him. The lad had
a very honest face, and a twinkle
in his grey eyes which played sad
havoc with the girls' hearts, but so
far he had been faithful and true to
his first love, little Sally Meadows,
with whom he had played in the gutter in their somewhat sad childhood.
Both wcre orphans who by sonic miracle of diplomacy on their part or of
strange neglect on the part of the
proper authorities had escaped thc
Union. They had supported themselves and helped one another for the
last eleven years, and were only waiting a favourable opportunity to take
up a house together, as man and Avifc.
They were very young, and hard Avork
and insufficient food had retarded
their growth so that both Avere a little undersized. But since he had
been elevated to the post of drayman,
and his life was spent in the open,
| Joe had become decidedly more
healthy looking, while the girls' club
Avith its drill and health exercises had
done wonders for Sally. She was a
blouse hand in a Fore Street factory,
and spent the most of her time stooping over her work.
"She'll come rite, enuff, Joe,
bob or no bob. 'Tain't necessary to
bet on e'r—" she answered and there
was a somewhat sad note in her
voice.
"I dunno as I wants 'er to come
particler, Sally. She's agin mc, thet's
wot she is, an' I think it's time if yer
asts me, thet we 'ad a 'ome of our
own. A feller like mc, earnin' good
money, didn't oughter to be lyin'
round promiskus-like in lodgings. I
Aean to 'ave me oavii 'ome this side
I o' Christmas or t'other at least, an' if
yer won't, well theer's some as Avon't
sy no."
A rebellious drop started to Sally's
eye, but she shook her head.
"I ain't goin' to marry till we've
got enuff saved fer our 'ome, Joe.
Miss Emmy she ses 'tain't rite. Yer
should 'ear 'er talk. She'd soon mike
yer see 'tain't rite to 'ave Avot yer
can't pay fer."
Joe spat upon the ground, and muttered something under his breath.
"It's all very well fer toffs to come
down like your blamed Miss Emmy
does an' preach to pore folks, as to
wot's rite an' wot's Avrong. Set 'em
dahn 'ere any bloomin' toff among
'em, rite 'ere in Flinders Court, an'
see what they'll mike o' it."
* * * *
Sally's eyes dwelt a little wistfully
on his face. It was a curious place
to keep tryst, just under the gas
lamp at the entrance to the Court,
but though people constantly passed
and repassed them nobody took the
slightest notice. There Avas a curious air of detachment about the dwellers in Flinders Court, as if each one
had sufficient to do with the problems
of life to prevent them taking any undue interest in their neighbors. And
yet they were all willing, Avithin possible limits, to help one another. Sally
Meadows herself, and little Tim, her
invalid brother, had received much
kindness at the hands of her neighbours. It had all been taken as it
Avas given, as a matter of course. As
for thanks, they had to be taken for
granted in every case; certainly none
were ever expressed.
"I'm dead sick on it, Sally, an' me
'ome I must 'ave. Boxin' Day or the
folloAvin' week. Thet's me mind on it,
tike or leave it, as yer likes."
"I've only got eleven shillin's saved, Joe, on account of Tim being so
poorly and needin' so much medicine.
Miss Emmy, she promised to come
'ere yistiday an' to bring a letter fer
the Convalescent 'Ome, but she ain't
come."
"No, nor won't," put in Wackitt, a
trifle savagely. "An' I wish to bloomin' goodness she'd stick to 'er own
plice, an' mind 'er own business.
"You don't talk like thet abart my
Miss Emmy, Joe Wackitt, or I don't
stand 'ere wiv yer annuvver minnit.'"
"All rite, chuck it. Boxin' Day or
not at all, I gits me answer to-mor-
ra, Sally, and if it ain't Avhat I likes,
why then I speaks to Tilda thet's all."
So saying Joe sauntered off, not
once looking back, and after standing
a few moments looking wistfully after him, Sally ran back to the door of
* the big tenement house at the top of
1 which in one tiny attic room she
dwelt with her brother Tim. Tim
was only thirteen years old, poor Sally herself not yet eighteen. Her face,
however, had many lines upon it, such
as experience and thc grim reality
of life carve on human faces, telling
their own pathetic talc. Sally, Iioav-
ever, as a rule was a very cheerful
little person Avho did not indulge in
any morbid dwelling on the hardships
of her lot. She was as well off as
the most of her compeers, and better
off than some. For she Avas her oavii
mistress, and could order her life as
she pleased. It was only of late,
since Joe had become so masterful in
his ways, exercising the male prerogative to arbitrate destiny for others,
that she had had any problems to
face at all. She loved Joe Wackitt
dearly, but she likewise loved Miss
Emmy, the dear friend who came
doAvn one night in each week from
the West End to spend three hours in
the girls' club, and avIio never allowed
any engagement, hoAvever tempting,
to stand in the way.
* * * *
Xow Miss.Emmy did not approve
of. Joe, that was the crux of the
Avhole matter. She Avas very fond of
Sally, whose sweet Avays and odd refinements of nature had at the beginning of the club, singled her out for
special attention. Sally was pretty
very pretty indeed, but Miss Emmy
regarded her as a child and had
wrung from her a promise not to marry for another two years at least.
Miss Emmy had not worked so faithfully in the East End all these years
without discovering some of the
causes of the misery whicii abounded.
Next to drink, she placed early
marriage, before either of the parties
realised their responsibility; or had
made any provision for the future.
She had talked so much, and so earnestly on this very subject to her
girls, that she had at last succeeded
in making them agree partly with her
views. A few, Sally among the rest,
had faithfully promised not to marry
any man Avho Avould not fulfil certain
conditions. Two of these, Miss Emmy
urged to be all important, viz., that
the bridegroom should take the
pledge for his love's sake, and also
that hc should provide a home for
her, paid for out of his oavii earnings
before she married him.
At lirst Joe bad made no objection
to these conditions, and had started
manfully saving for the purpose. Fie
had been very steady then, but after
he was elevated to the drayman's
seat, temptations were more frequent,
and of late he bad fallen away. And
with it there had come a change over
his sunshiny nature, which vexed Sally's heart terribly. He became irritable, exacting, and above all indignant and resentful about the girls'
club and all its Avays. Tavo ultimatums he had already laid before Sally,
and her failure to accept them Avould
mean the Avithdrawal of the light of
his countenance from her, Avhich Avas
a catastrophe Sally was not prepared
for. She had told Miss Emmy part
of her trouble the last club night, and
had written to ber the next day; after
she had received Joe's ultimatum Miss
Emmy had Avrittcn that she Avould
come down to havc a talk with them
both, and had set the time, but the
day had passed, and another day
without bringing news of her,* Sally
was desperate, and after Joe left she
ran up to see whether Tim Avas all
right, and whether he Avould mind if
sbc'.left him for an hour. Tim did not
mind. Hc was a sunshiny..JiUJe chap,
! avIio could always amuse himself, and
since   Miss   Emmy   had   taught   him
HoAver-making and found a market
for his wares he had been very happy indeed.
Having seen that he was comfortable, and had a nice bit of fire to
keep him company till she came back,
Sally set off to the station at Aldgate
whence she proceeded to Baker
Street for the West End. It was not
the first time she had paid an evening visit to her dear Miss Emmy,
and she Avas in no doubt as to her
Avclcomc. Even the grim-faced butler had a Avord and a smile for her,
though she had brought him from his
evening meal.
She Avas shown into the pretty morning room, Avhere in a few minutes'
time Miss Emmy appeared, a beautiful vision in a shimmering white
frock, with a necklace of shining
stones on her neck.
"How are you, Sally, and whatever
has happened to bring you all the Avay
from Mile-End Road on such a wet
night?"
"I 'ad to come, Miss Smmy, an'
oh my, I'm glad I did! You do look
lovely, like a real angel, an' no mistake!"
Miss Emmy blushed a little, not so
much at Sally's compliment, as at the
fact that someone else had not long
ago made the same observation to her
with an added fervour from a pair of
handsome blue eyes which had mightily stirred her heart. There was a certain compassion in the rich girl's
SAvect face as she Avaited very tenderly and kindly to hear what the poor
one had to say. Miss Emmy had not
dared to tell her girls that the OAvner
of the pair of blue eyes aforesaid had
come from India to take her away.
"Well, and what is it, dear? I hope
Tim is not any worse."
"Oh, no; Tim's all rite. It's Joe,
Miss, 'e's goin' on somethink orful;
ses Ave must git married Boxin' Dy or
tbe week arter, an' not a minnit later.
Ses if I don't he'll tike up wiv Tilda."
She wiped her eyes, and flopped
down into a low chair the image of
despair.
"That's a very arbitrary Avay for
Master Joe to take, Sally, f thought
it was usually the bride who fixed the
day. Well, and what did you say to
this?"
"I sed I Avouldn't, 'cos you see, I
ain't got  hardly nuthink laid by."
"And Joe?" asked Miss Emmy anxiously, knowing full well that it Avas
the wife in nearly every case who had
to bear the burden of the dual life
after its bonds had been forged.
"Oh, 'e ain't got a penny, and t'other nite I met 'im wiv Tilda, jes goin'
inter the Blue Boy in Dean Street.
I've never gone into no pub wiv 'im
or any man, Miss Emmy, since ever
you told us not to, but my! it did 'urt
to see 'im wiv Tilda, an' 'er Aviv a new
fewer from 'cr club; I ain't never 'ad
a fewer in me life."
"Poor Sally, but you shall have a
feather for Christmas, I'll see to that.
Let me see, Avell, it's only three
weeks till Christmas now, not very
long in which to get ready."
* * * *
Sally shook her head.
"No, Miss ;an' thet it ain't. I don't
wants to git married at Christmas. I
ain't ready fer it like, nor is Joe. But
thet ain't wheer it 'urts most. If 'e
was steady an' nice like 'e used, I'd
—I'd maybe stretch a point, see, see-
in' as 'e wants a 'ome so bad. It's
since 'e's took odd times Aviv Tilda
'e's got on to me like that, an' I
knoAvs Avot she 'opes I do, thet she
can git 'im away from me, for she
don't care whether she pays for
things or not, or Avhether 'er chep be
drunk or sober. 'E 'ad some drink
to-nite, Miss Emmy, though on Sunday 'e promised mc faithful to tike
the pledge."
Here a fresh stream of tears blinded poor Sally's eyes, and Miss Emmy's filled for company. It Avas this
delightful quality of sympathy undoubtedly which had endeared her so
much to the hearts of her club girls,
and enabled her to do so much with
and for them.
"Theer's anuvver thing, Miss Emmy; 'e's begin to kick about Tim livin'
wiv us, though I told 'im, o', ever
so long ago, I'd never leave go of
Tim. 'E even had the cheek to sy as

"Sally, I do think you're a brick,
and far too good for Joe Wackitt.
Well, and when are you going to give
him a final answer to all this?"
"To-morra, Miss, so please tell mc
wot to do."
Sally sat up, dried her eyes, and
Avaited with a perfectly submissive
air for guidance. Miss Emmy looked
much perplexed.
"Dear, I'm afraid I must leave this
to you; I can only help and advise. I
cannot act for you. You know I have
often told you that life would be happier for all us women if Ave took a
little thought about matrimony. I
only ask you to consider Avhat are
your chances of happiness. You have
feared that of late Joe is less steady."
"I know 'e is, Miss, and it's along
o' Tilda. Joe, 'e never spoke a Avord
about gittin' married till 'e began to
tike up wiv 'er. An' she doesn't care
a fig Avhether a chep is drunk or sober,
so long's he's got the money to
spend."
"Sally, dear, there isn't anything
in the world I Avant than to see you a
happy wife. I Avouldn't stand in your
way for worlds, but I'm very much
afraid o' Joe Wackitt."
"So am I, Miss Emmy, so am I,"
said Sally, without a moment's hesitation. '"E ain't wot 'c Avas. I know
Avot it would bc like. I've seen too
much of it da'an there, an' I ain't,
no, I ain't, agoin' to git myself an'
Tim into sech a 'ole."
"But on the other hand," went on
Miss Emmy earnestly, "there is thc
saving of Joe to be considered. Do
you honestly think that if you married him on Boxing Day he Avould reform and settle down into a good
husband?"
"No, an' thet I don't, Miss Emmy.
'E won't give up a blessed think feline now, an' is it likely 'e will arter?
Xo, it ain't.    I knows wot men is."
* * * *
The small and experienced philosopher delivered this crushing statement
with much deliberation. Miss Emmy
did not even smile.
"It is a matter, dear, you must
fight out with yourself. I've only one
thing to say. If you do decide to
marry I'll help to furnish your rooms.
1 am determined that you shan't start
I mite ast you to git 'im into some
insitootion. I up an' tells 'im instoo-
tions is only fer them pore critters
who ain't got no folk.   As long as I
J can work for Tim, 'e 'as a home Aviv
your married life under a cloud of
debt, after the brave fight you've
made."
"Thank you, Miss, but I shan't tell
Joe thet. 'E's too much of a one fer
thinkin' Ave should git more from the
likes o' you. Good-night, Miss, an'
thank you ever so much; my, you do
look like a hangcl, an' I'll try to tell
Tim abart you."
"Just Avait until I get something
for him from the dining-room," said
I Miss Emmy, and shortly returned
with a small basket packed with fruit
j and biscuits.   And she gave poor Sal-
1 ly a kiss at lhe door, which sent her
off in the seventh heaven of reverent
' delight. Miss Emmy was very busy
with her own engrossing affairs just
then, and though she gave much consideration to Sally's case and also
wrote to her, it Avas a whole Aveek
before she saw her again. And then
it Avas a Sunday afternoon, Avhen with
her soldier lover she made a pilgrimage to Mile End to inquire concerning
Sally. She found her very depressed,
and learned that the breach with Joe
was almost complete. It was not till
long after that Miss Emmy learned
how nobly Sally had stood up for her
rights, and how she repudiated the
idea put boldly forward by Joe, that
Miss Emmy should bc asked to provide the wherewithal to start the
home. A week later, Miss Emmy
heard from Sally that he had engaged himself to Tilda, and that they
wcre to bc married on Boxing Day.
Miss Emmy was at her father's country house then, a long way in the
country, and could not pay a visit of
condolence and encouragement to
Sally, but she did not fail to Avrite
and to send a Christmas hamper for
her and the boy.
But it was a very dreary Christmas
and in spite of all her efforts Sally
could not keep a bright face. She had
been very fond of Joe, she had mothered him in a way for so many years,
that his sudden slide into the broad

NOTICE.
The Editor of The Week wishes to
thank the 250 business firms of Victoria, who so kindly gave their advertising support to the Special Wide-
Awake Number published last week.
This number consisted of 44 pages
and on the testimony of all the outside newspapers it is the best advertisement of the resources and business opportunities of Victoria and
Vancouver Island which has ever
been published as a Special newspaper
number. An acknowledgment is also
due to Mr. C. E. Cameron and his
staff for the able and thoroughly
satisfactory manner in which they
handled the advertising department.
Not a single complaint has been received and The Week has nothing
but praise and appreciation for their
services. The fact that the local
press did not see fit to recognise the
number is the best testimony to its
efficiency and effectiveness.
PRINCE      RUPERT,     THE
NEW   WESTERN  CAPITAL
BY BOHEMIAN
I havc just returned from my first
visit to Prince Rupert, the new Western Capital, the City whicii is destined to share with Vancouver thc honours of the Pacilic Coast. Its geographical position determines its importance; it is the only possible centre of the great development which
will shortly lake place in Northern
British Columbia. It is not only the
terminus of a Trans-Continental rail-
Avay, but of necessity the distributing point for all the minor towns and
camps which will bc established in
that country. It has already commenced this work of distribution; the
ocean-going steamers running from
Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver discharge their cargoes at Prince Rupert; the local Mosquito Fleet picks up
at least 75 per cent, of these cargoes
and scatters it along the Coast up
the Skeena, up Alice Arm, Observatory Inlet or among the Islands
where already farming operations
have commenced and lumber camps,
canneries and fisheries have been established. The wharf at Prince Rupert is as busy as any Avharf in the
Province, and if there is so much evidence of activity in the beginning,
what will it bc in a few years' time,
when the day of small things has given way to an era of established industries and general prosperity?
I havc said that thc geographical
position of Prince Rupert determines
its importance, and the statement cannot be gainsaid. Every vessel passing north and south between Alaska
and Puget Sound must call at Prince
Rupert. So much for its location.
Now what are the principal assets of
tllis wonderful, new city? First of
all one of the finest natural harbours
in the Avorld. It is a deep Avater har
hour, entirely free from obstruction,
completely land-locked and therefore
unaffected by wind or storm; it
stretches at least twelve miles in
length and it is from two to three
miles across. Nothing finer could
be conceived as a haven for ships
The G. T. P. has already built a large
Avharf and the Provincial Government
is bttflding one half-a-mile to the
West. The latter is a unique structure owing to the use of concrete
piles, which should make it permanent and get rid forever of that "bctc-
noir" of shipping wharfs, the teredo.
I went up on thc "Beatrice" and
found the accommodation ancl attention in every respect excellent. I
came cIoavii on the "Prince George"
and even the most captious critic
could not find a fault with it. I think
it is simply wonderful that in the early  stages    of its    development    the
Northern part of this Province should
be so admirably served by a steamship service which cannot be improved on anywhere.
The trip was thoroughly enjoyable
and I was greatly surprised to find
that the passage was so well protected. With the exception of Queen
Charlotte Sound, where wc Avere exposed to the swell of the Pacific, the
entire voyage was smooth and, so far
as 1 could observe, no one suffered
from "mal-de-mer."
We called at Swanson Bay, where
I had a look at the Pulp & Lumber
Mill; this concern has not had a very
happy experience, having had to encounter till the difficulties incident to
a new industry, including mismanagement; but it is a big enterprise and
is, I am told, settling clown to business.
Approaching Prince Rupert one
cannot fail to be impressed Avith the
beauty of the scenery. The city rises
from the water's edge in a scries of
terraces to a mountain range ill the
back-ground. The distance from the
harbour to the foot of the mountain
is probably t\y_ft»,,miles, and as this
terrace is ten or twelve miles in
length it will be seen that there is
unplc room for a city of almost any
population. I was greatly surprised
at the amount of building already
done. There are half-a-dozen expensive blocks, such as the Mclntyre and
the Hclgerson, which would bc a
credit to any city. There are half-a-
dozen hotels of ample accommodation
and good management, and there are
scores of shops, all doing a large
business. I should not like to make
a guess at the number of real estate
and financial offices, but their name
is Legion and they have plenty to do.
The one thing that Prince Rupert
lacks to-day is streets, but that will
soon be remedied. Street building is
by no means a "cinch" owing to the
alternating of rock and "muskeg,"
and the very irregular grades. To
help matters out the Government and
the G. T. P. built many miles of
plank streets and sidewalks, which afford access to every part of the city.
These are gradually being replaced
by graded streets. On the latter work
nearly a thousand men are employee!
continually; they arc removing hil'.*.-.
beside which the famous gravel-banks
of Seattle look like molehills, but
they arc gradually getting there, and
when Second and Third Avenue arc
completed, in a year from now, Prince
Rupert will take on- the true semblance of a modern city.
I Avant to say a Avord for thc climate. It might be better and it might
be Avorse. I experienced tAvo line
days there, which would havc clone
credit to Victoria in August or September. They were days of the
brightest sunshine and the bluest
sky. Afterwards it rained, but I believe it sometimes rains, even in
Vancouver and, in any event the records show that Prince Rupert has
fewer rainy days in the year than the
Terminal City. The people of Prince
Rupert, however, have solved thc
problem of how to be happy though
wet. They simply dress suitably and
go about as if they enjoyed it. And
no doubt they do, for there is little
or no sickness and everybody agrees
that it is a thoroughly healthy place.
My last word must bc one of recognition for the excessive kindness
shown to "a stranger within the
gates" aud for the splendid spirit of
courage and optimism which prevails.
Neither the Aveather nor the delay in
completing the G. T. P., nor even
the shadow of the Scott Act could
damp the enthusiasm of the people.
They believe in their city; they know
that it is going to be the greatest
city on the Coast; they back their
opinion with their money and their
brains, and if anything can resist the
Prince Rupert spirit I have yet to
learn what it is.

MUSIC
AND   THE   STAGE
Victoria Theatre
On Monday last Mr. Turner's or-
hestra gave their initial concert at
he Victoria Theatre. Seeing this is
he first attempt of the kind made
n the Capital City and, seeing also
hat Mr. Turner had alloAved himself
inly a short period within which to
rain his some thirty-five members,
he greatest credit is due to this en-
erprising musician and there is ev-
ry ground for hope that if he will
ontinue the good work, it will not
>e long before Victoria boasts an
irchestra second to none on the
oast.
To come doAvn to details it must
: confessed that if Raoul Pereira
Portugal's foremost violinist, Por-
ttgal is somewhat lacking in musical
ilent. Signor Periera is a performer
bove the average, but he is by no
leans a virtuoso, nor does there
eem any likelihood of his rising
bove the ranks of first class orches-
ra'l players. Mr. Max Steindel is a
.ellist of merit, but his rendering of
The Rosary" which he gave as an
ncore lacked soul. Great praise is
ue to Mrs. Gibson, who proved her-
elf an accomplished accompanist. I
ould offer one criticism as to Mr.
"urner in the role of conductor; he
ould seem not yet to have acquired
tat magnetic personality Avhich liter-
ly drags the members of an orches-
a up to the level of their leader.
The above must not be taken as
erogatory of this new orchestra
hich will, doubtless, do much in the
tture to enhance the credit which
ictoria already possesses as a musi-
il centre. I understand that many
eople, desirous of giving their pat-
mage bought tickets which they
ere unable to use owing to the
ress of Christmas business. This will
0 junt for the fact that the theatre
as not filled to capacity.
New Grand Theatre
The tAvo star features of the week
ave been the turns contributed by
liss Josephine Ainsley and Messrs.
arroll & Cooke; the former appear-
lg in dainty costume and singing
everal humorous selections. Miss
\insley has a good voice and presents
most graceful appearance on the
tage. The former are two delight-
ul comedians, the one grave and the
other gay; but the grave one has a
winkling eye and the gay one has a
ugubrious countenance; both have a
und of Avit and humour which it
would be hard to beat. McDonald
nd Huntington appear in song dur-
ng the course of Avhich the lady
ings a charming French ditty with
ppropriate action. Fresh from tlieir
uropcan tour the Peters Com-
any are to be seen on the S. & C.
rcuit Avhere they are scoring a huge
ticcess.
Lyceum Theatre
At the Johnson Street House the
Bernard & damage Musical Comely Co. are holding the boards. They
are submitting the usual programme
f musical farce; they have a bevy of
inging girls, two excellent comedi-
ins and a leading man and woman
,vho are above the average.
The Majestic Theatre
The great feature of this week on
Wednesday and Thursday night has
ieen the representation of moving
icturcs taken by the Edison Com-
any during their recent visit to Vic-
oria. These films have not failed to
lelight residents and cannot fail in
qual measure to advertise the
harms of the Gem of the Pacific.

ited on having been far-sighted

a ticket; this offer holds good to the
end of the year. Even this "extra"
does not satisfy the enterprising
Manager and so he has engaged Mr.
D. Black, the concertina man, who is
a marvel in Ills own line. That Mr.
Jamieson is not at fault in his judgment is evidenced by the rapidly
growing houses.
The Romano Theatre
Frequent complaints have been
made that moving picture houses do
not provide sufficiently comfortable
chairs for their patrons; nor can this
be wondered at when it is taken into
consideration that the entrance fee is
only ten cents. But the management
of the Romano Theatre have checkmated this objection by installing a
completely new set of upholstered
chairs. Mr. Quaglotti has always furnished first class films and now he is
furnishing first class accommodation.
This combination will insure capacity
houses.

A special Christmas vaudeville bill,
selected personally by John W. Considine for Victoria will come here next
Aveek with the biggest feature of the
year to head it. This is Norman
Jeffries, presenting Ray Dooley's
Metropolitan minstrels of seven
youngsters, five of them girls. This
act was the headliner of Sullivan and
Considine number three road show,
and has been withdraAvn from its regular booking specially to send to Victoria. This septette is a royal treat
for everyone, young and old. The
seven are accomplished singers and
dancers. There is rapidity of wit and
all is quality.
The booking office at Seattle says
"This act can be boosted in advance
notices as high as you like. You cannot say too great things about it for
it will make good to the top standard
of vaudeville." Manager George
Trumbull, ncAvly arrived here from
Seattle, saw the act there this week
and adds his praise, endorsing thc
verdict of the other critics.
Scotch songs and sweet ballads of
the Highlands form the big supporting act of the new sIioav for Christmas Aveek. Sterling and Chapman
will bring a breath of the heather delightful and entrancing, presenting at
the same time a pretty Highland picture. There are several duets on thc
pipes and much singing in SAvett
voices of the old Scotch songs, and
maybe just a little dancing.
Every act a feat and every motion a
smile is the line handed to the Three
Alvarettas. The act is new in every
particular, with good dressing, much
apparatus and plenty of fun. They

turn is high class, clean and done by

expensive than all the whole years.

MUSIC AND THE STAGE
(Continued from Page 5)
dashing engineer is a designing villain of the Stanford White type, and
the crafty Frenchman turns out to be
a real hero avIio rescues the innocent
young maiden from the Avolfish desires of the American and then saves
her from the wrath of her insane
father. Not only is it an intensely
interesting drama, but there is enough
brilliant comedy interwoven to form
the basis of a popular musical comedy. Don't forget the date, next
Monday night only. Seat sale opens
Friday.
The Burgomaster
On Tuesday, December 27th, 1910,
"The Burgomaster" will hold thc
boards of the Victoria theatre. This
musical comedy, one of thc favourites, has bee nimproved ancl enlarged
since its last appearance here. "The
Burgomaster" is one of the best musical comedies on the stage at the present time and the music is pretty and
catchy. The play has been brought
right up to date, neAV costumes, scenery and electrical effects.
The Time, the Place and the Girl
to be seen at the Victoria Theatre, is
a musical comedy of heart interest
with a plot of strong dramatic
scenes yet full of fun, laugh-proving
dialogue and humorous complications
all set to music and with its acting
possibilities enhanced by half a dob-
en unique but thoroughly lifelike
characterisations. For instance there
is the philosophical young "sport"
with a mind of Avisdom expressed in
clean and down-to-date slang; the
trained nurse, worldly wise, but a
gentlewoman, the proud and petulant
daughter of the rich, who is tamed
by the "sport" the Italian labourer
avIio provided thc sentiment; the coal
heaver who is "just going to be married" and the classy man-about-town
Avhose wild oats arc harvested as
gamely as they arc sown. With
these types cleverly exploited "The
Time, the Place and the Girl" keeps
safely out of the conventional rut. It
is distinguished by comedy rather
than clowning, though there is a bit
or two of burlesque interpolated to
magnify the contrasts. Geo. Ebncr
will again bc seen in the leading role,
one that is peculiarly suited to the
droll amiability of his methods. Victoria theatre, Wednesday, Dec. 28.
"Chocolate Soldier"
"The Chocolate Soldier," which is
to bc presented at thc Victoria theatre on Tuesday, Jan. 3, by the Whitney Opera company, has established
theatrical records in more than one
way. As Mr. Whitney had eagerly
grasped at it as a composition of thc
musical wonder-maker, Oscar Straus,
two years before it Avas presented
abroad, the generally unknown work
Avas presented in NeAV York to about
the smallest beginning remembered
for operetta, but so great became the
enthusiasm of the first night audience,
the theatre was sold completely out
for four weeks ahead in the next two
days and so continued until the end
of the run. Its instant popularity
even survived the bugbear of the theatrical producer—a change of theatre
in the middle of a run—for by the arrangements made long before, "The
Chocolate Soldier" made its first bow
at the Lyric theatre, Avas soon forced to the Herald Square, back again
Aveeks later to the Lyric, and after
exhausting all possible time /there
was driven to the Casino to stay for
the remainder of the season quite as
if it was not the most affluent baby
of the theatrical year.
"Nancy"
One of thc most pleasing effects in
"Nancy" the new comedy in Avhich
Miss Grace Cameron will be seen at
the Victoria Theatre on Monday. Jan.
9, is thc curtain of the lirst act. All
through thc last scene, Miss Cameron
works with the theatre and stage in
absolute darkness with the exception
of the red glow of an old cook stove.
In this particular scene, the dramatic
situation is so intense that even
though there is not a word spoken
for nearly two minutes, you can hear
a pin drop or a breath taken unusually strong by any member of the
audience. During the action of the
play Miss Cameron will sing several

"The Squaw Man"
One of the most intense scenes in
"The Squaw Man" is that in the second act, Avhen Cash Hawkins, the
"rustler" invites the cowpunchers in
the Long Horn Saloon to "drink with
me," the invitation is emphasised Avith
a drawn 44-Colt. It is not used, because Hawkins had the drop on every
man present, and each individual knew
it. This is one o fthe feAV cases on
record where a "bad man" pulled a
gun and did not use it, and that the
failure later cost Hawkins his life.
Edwin Milton Roylc has taken the
incident from real life, and it actually occurred in the Rocky Mountain
Sheep saloon, "West Cliff." "Young"
Dick McCoy, one of the "bad men"
of Wyoming, dropped into the saloon, loaded with bad whiskey. Some
of the "Bar L" and "Broken I" outfit, most of who mwere Englishmen,
had come in from the round-up and
were quietly drinking, as McCoy vvith
an oath, whipped out his gun; waved
it tOAvard the bar, and in a burst of
profanity, declared "The house
drinks with me." I'll kill the first foy-
ote and "short horn" who don't ijtcp
lively." When the glasses were filled,
the rustler proposed a toast, as he lifted his glass 011 high and SAvept his
gun in a semi-circle—"Here's to the
Boers," a young Englishman, Hunter, stepped up to the desperado,
whipped out his revolver and placed it
against McCoy's side, blowing a hole
through his body. As he fell dead,
McCoy's trigger linger closed convulsively. When the smoke cleared
away, it was seen that Hunter's left
ear had been clipped off by the last
shot of the "good bad man." "The
Squaw Man" will bc seen at the Victoria theatre on Wednesday, Jan.  11.
voured device is like the ordinary
round conical electric light shade,
Avith the inside turned toward the

rats, alive or dead, shall be taken off
the ship. All those caught and killed
on board must be burnt on board.
Lastly, only one gangway is to bc left
betAveen the ship and dockside, and
that gangway shall bc whitened for a
length of ten feet at the end near the
vessel so that a rat crossing the gang-
Avay Avould be seen.
New Astronomer-Royal
The King, on the recommendation
of the Secretary for Scotland, has approved the appointment of Mr. R. A.
Sampson, F.R.S., professor of mathematics and astronomy in the University of Durham, to be Astronomer-
Royal for Scotland and professor of
practical astronomy in the University
of Edinburgh in succession to Mr.
F. W. Dyon, the Astronomer Royal.
UNIVERSITY SCHOOL
SPEECH DAY
Determined in all things to carry
out their original programme of
moulding the University School on
English Public School lines, the principals of the Mount Tolmie Institution closed their Michaelmas term
Avith "Speech Day" and not "closing
exercises." Thc growth of this school
has been phenomenal. At the present
lime they have a hundred aud fifty
boys wo can boast of more boarders
than any other school in Canada. So
rapid has been this growth that
many of the boys arc boarding out
but by next September new buildings
will bc erected which will provide
accommodation for an additional fifty
boys. It is largely the discipline
which prevails at the University
School that has induced parents so
spontaneously to send them there
iu preference to the public schools.
At the close of the distribution of
prizes whicii was undertaken by the
Right Reverend A. U. dePencicr,
Bishop of Ncav Westminster, a play
was presented by the boys in costume
entitled "Tile King's English." The
two stars in this were undoubtedly R.
Beech, as an Antiquarian, and E. Ashcroft, who made a remarkably pretty
girl. Thc whole cast, however, was
excellent and would have put to
shame many travelling companies.
There was a large attendance of relatives and friends and it was universally acknowledged that the university School had scored another
big success.
Rat Crusade
With a view to enforcing precautions for the prevention of the landing of rats, the Port of London Authority has just given notice of proposed new bye-laws, objections to
which can be received up till January 11 next, after which a public
Board of Trade inquiry will bc held
before the bye-laws are passed and
can bc enforced. The proposed bye-
laws arc three. The lirst makes it
necessary to lit all ropes and tackle

Twenty-five to forty below zero at
Winnipeg, Edmonton and other prairie points, one to three feet of snow,
is the record of the Prairie Provinces
to date. In the Okanagan Valley
there is no snow and only a few degrees of frost occasionally at night

Red Deer Colony
In a letter to Hon. Dr. Young, the
provincial secretary, Mr. Warburton
Pike, who is now in the Old Country
on a special mission for thc Government, sends the encouraging neAVS
that Scottish red deer for stocking
suitable portions of this Province can
be secured for approximately $50 each.
The suggestion receiving consideration is that an island in the Gulf shall
bc placed under reserve, and the imported animals placed thereon tinder
proper care until they become acclimatized, this island reserve being subsequently used as a distribution depot
in the stocking of suitable localities
for red deer in A'arious parts of the
Province.
A Long Tramp
George E. Frye arrived at Kamloops last Saturday from Vancouver
on a walking tour across the continent, his destination being Halifax, N.
S., on a Avager. In order to Avin the
stake he had to start without funds
and cover the distance, 3,6000 miles,
in five months. He left Vancouver
on December 5. He is resting here
today, his feet causing him some little
trouble on account of his attempting
too much the first day out, but will
resume his tramp in the morning. Hc
is a sturdy looking fellow and should
make the trip within thc allotted time,
barring accidents. His capital amounted to $1.35  on  reaching Kamloops.
The Alberta "Mecca"
That the farmers from the United
States and Eastern Canada are fully
convinced of the value of Alberta
lands, is shown in the number of
homesteads that, during the past
month, havc been taken up in that
Province. Nearly 100,000 acres of
land passed from the hands of the
Dominion Government to private citizens in the Calgary land district, according to official report issued at the
Land Office, 500 homesteads were
taken up, most of them on territory
lying to the Northeast of Calgary,
across the Red Deer River. This is
very desirable land, being level and
avcII watered, and has been the "Mecca' of most of the homesteaders coming into that province during thc past
year.
Finds Buffalo Head
James Fleming, of the American
Hotel, Medicine Hat, has acquired a
curio which may eventually rest in

head of a buffalo bull. It has been
marvellously preserved in an alkali
formation for over 25 years. The entire carcass Avas found by Sam McKay, in a dried up alkalai lake sixty
miles north of Medicine Hat. Hc
chopped off the head Avith an axe and
brought it Mr. Fleming. The fleshy
parts arc soft and pliable, and resemble salted pork. The face and neck
wrinkles arc preserved in a manner
to actually fix the expression on the
animal's face. McKay is credited with
killing the last buffalo in this district
in 1885, when a band of forty had

board expects later to furnish a room
for cookery classes. It is proposed
that boys and girls from ten years of
age upwards shall be taught these
new branches of the curriculum. The
cost of installing the benches and
tools Avill be $1,200. Of this sum the
Provincial Government, in accordance
with the Act passed last session, will
pay three-quarters, or $900. The Government Avill also pay over 50 per

THE ART OF FENCING
One often hears people complaining
of the lack of amusement in the evening. A science that combines both
recreation and hygiene is the art of
fencing. No one is too young or too
old to take it up and the results from
a health point of view in a few Aveeks
time arc indeed surprising. To train
thc eye, to increase the energy, to
exercise the muscles, and indeed, to
renew one's youth lies in the charm
of foiling. To those avIio are troubled
with obesity it is one of the finest
and most natural cures; to those avIio
suffer from torpid liver, brain fag, or
lack of energy, what finer toning up
of the whole system could be found.
Fencing is a gentle exercise, it is not
a A'iolent straining of the muscles of
the body, and is beneficial to men and
women alike. It makes for a gracefulness of figure and carriage, which
cannot be acquired in any other way.
Manual Training
The Nelson School Board has decided to introduce at the next term,
opening January 2. manual training
and   domestic   science   at   the  public
lt is interesting and fascinating to
watch and a source of pleasure which
lends to everyday life an added charm.

the 16th The Queen's Lancers, ancl
was chief certified instructor at W.
McPherson's well known gymnasium
and school of arms, and West End
School of Remedial and Curative
Physical Culture, London, England.
A pupil of two International fencing
champions, Mr. West has fenced with
some of the most famous fencers in
Europe. He is Aviry, active, and alert,
and immediately he gets a rapier in
his hand and gets into position he becomes the power behind the sword.
Mr. West will talk fencing to you and
in five minutes -will interest even the
most apathetic of individuals. There
is something about fencing that grips
you and arrests the attention. We
have all at some time or other read
books of the old days, Avhen every
gentleman carried a sword and our
thoughts take us back to the books of
Dumas, Stanley Weyman, Bloundellc
Burton and others. In these matter
of fact days, avc do not have to defend our lives with the sword, but the
exercise remains and the advice of
The Week is  try it.
Cowichan, Dec. 4, 1910.
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—Some of your readers Avould
like to know Avhy the Dominion Gov-
crnnient is holding an enquiry on
Technical Education in this Province.
Wc understood that the Provincial
Government was responsible for education. It is known that the Dominion Government intruded on Provincial Education in order to force Roman Catholic schools on two Northwest Provinces, which it did by means
of corruption and bribery, Avhich is
almost ttnparallelled. What is the
game now?
Yours truly.

The Last Bus Home
(By Arthur Applin.)
"1 'arsked 'er Avhereabouts she lived," said the conductor, "and she
said "Ammersmifl' Now wy should I
go to 'Ammcrsmif, eh?" His voice
sounded aggressive. "1 don't work no-
wheres near 'Ammcrsmif, 1 don't. So
1 up and tells 'cr."
What he would have told her was
cut short by the time inspector, avIio
informed him time Avas up. The motorman, who had listened sympathetically to his story of the lady from
Hammersmith, sloAvly moved aAvay
and started the engine. The conductor looked inside the omnibus. There
wcre only two passengers, one a stout
lady and the other a seedy-looking
old man sitting in the far corner. Thc
stout lady, in addition to a large basket basket, had sundry parcels more
or less wrapped in neAvspaper, and
a huge umbrella with one of the ribs
broken and hanging in a forlorn fashion.
"Does this 'bus go to Edith Road?"
she asked.
"It passes near Edif Road. I'll tell
yer when wc gets there."
The stout lady nodded, closed her
eyes and went to sleep. Presently
a little old woman, executing a weird
dance on the pavement, hailed the
omnibus. "Come on, ole lady," thc
conductor grinned, "cam't stop 'ere
all nite; come on."
The little old Avoman stopped short,
drew herself up and with stern determination in her eye put out her
hand to grasp the brass rail of the
'bus. Thc conductor .pulled her in,
and she remonstrated, in . a shrill
voice: "Orl rite, old .dear, I'm a-
comin' ain't I? I ain't so yourig .is I
used to be in getting on these 'ere
new-fangled things."
The conductor deposited her gently on the seat, and she looked round
her with a vacant air: "I Avant to go
to Stakenand Road. Stakenand Ro-
oad, do yer 'ear, conduc-hic-tor? Put
me off at Sta-hic-stakand Road. Now
I've told you once an' that should bo
enough for anyone. Call yerself ti
man," she Avent on, her voice rising
gradually, "me a poor lone female
what has seen better clays to be treated like this. I call it a shame, I
does."
The omnibus slowed down and
stopped to allow several people to
get in. A steady drizzle of rain had
commenced, and there was a rush for
scats inside. The little old Avoman
looked at each one avIio entered witu
a stony stare; her bonnet by this time
had worked itself over her left eye.
Thc stout lady, having had all her
parcels knocked from her lap, was
f,ro_)ing around on the floor. Upon
raising her head, she saAV a faded-
.ooking woman sitting beside her.
"Well*" she cried, "who'd a thought
it? It's Liza Jenkins."
The faded woman turned a weary*
looking face towards her. "Good*
evening, Mrs. Smith, 'ow are yer?
It's years since I seen yer. Yer do
look well, but 'ow's yer 'usband?"
The stout lady sighed and wiped
her eyes with the black shaAvl she
Avas wearing. "Dead, been dead a
twelve-month now."
The faded woman appeared duly
shocked. "Oh, I 'adn't 'card! Poor
man, did 'e go off sudden."
Tlie stout lady shook her head tie
jectedly.    "No,   e    Avere    ill  a  loii'j
time."
The rumbling of the 'bus silenced
■ai,iy further confidences for the moment; the little old voman opposi*-:
commenced to sing in a far-away
voice "Won't yer dance the Merry
Widder Warlsc wif me," swaying her
head to the time of the refrain.
The conductor was collecting   the
fares. Thc seedy man looked up at
him ancl winked. "Thort you was a-
drivin' a taxi, 1 did."
"Well, an' if 1 was?" retorted the
conductor, "What about it, eh?"..
"Nofink, only 1 thort you was driv-
in' a taxi, that's all."
"Well, don't link," answered the
conductor shortly. "Any more fares,
please?"
"Don't forget Edith Road, young
man," said thc stout lady.
"No, mum." Hc held out his hand
in the direction of two youths:
"Fares, please."
"Four two's," said one of the
youths. They were both dressed in
thc fashion that one can scc any Sunday night in Hyde Park, and they
wore very vivid coloured socks and
brown shoes. They were accompanied hy two girls who sat with their
arms entwined between thc two young
men.
"You h'are awful," said one of the
young ladies, "you've made me feel
quite ill with laughing."
The youth to whom this Avas addressed winked. "That's nothinkl
You should 'car me sometimes when 1
feel in thc mood. I am funny then,
ain't I, Alf?"
Alf nodded his head, "Not 'arf; you
should have seen 'im at Brighton
once. 'E went on pretendin' to be
potty. Oh lor! I 'ad a fit. Nearly
frightened a poor old man out 'is
senses, 'c did. 'Ow I did laugh!"
Both the young ladies turned looks
of admiration upon the youth, who
smirked and then settled his tie with
an air of pride.
There was silence for a moment or
two. Then an individual who was
sitting next to the seedy man in the
comer spoke: "Yus, right through mc
linger it Avas! I'm going to St. Thomas's Hospital, I am."
The stout old lady looked at him.
"'Urt yourself?"
"Yus! Me finger's orf. Took it orf
wiv an' 'atchet, 1 did. It did bleed."
He said this with a triumphant air.
'"Spcct it did; I once' cut myself
orful, I nearly bled to death, 1 did
really!" Thc stout lKdy turned to the
faded woman by her side: "It were
just before my little Rosie was born,
too. A wonder I didn't die, ain't it?
'Ow's yer Sarer Ann?" *.
"She's orl right, she is," the faded
one whispered. "Got a job as waitress
in a eatin' 'ouse. Quite the lady she
is. Wailks out wiv a feller from the
boiler works and wears kid gloves. 1
tell yer hanyone would take 'er for a
lady. By the wye, what did yer say
yer was goin' ter Edif Road for?"
The stout lady aelnt forward and
whispered in her car.
"No?" gasped the faded old woman. "Well I never! Never even knew
she was married. Well I am surprised!"
"Yes," continued thc stout party.
"'Fr 'usband come up for me. "Urry
back 'ome,' I says, 'I'll come arter
yer when I get me things,' I says, 'an'
I'll bc up arter yer most at onct,' I
says. In a terrible way hc was, too,
but Isays 'she'll be orl right. I'll not
bc long,' 1 says. 'You 'urry orf 'ome."
"Poor thing, 'ope she'll be orl
right. I'll not forget the night when
my Alice Emmer was born "
A shriek of laughter came from the
end of the 'bus. "You h'are a caution, you are really! Isn't he awful?"
The two young ladies shrieked again.
"I'm a rogue, that's what I am,"
one of the young men gurgled: "I'm
a naughty boy," and he playfully slapped his hand.
The little old lady was still alternately singing and dancing her ill-
shod feet on the floor. "What yer
staring at?" she suddenly demanded
of the comic young man.
"Nothink much," he retorted;. "I
was a'looking at you,"
This Avas received with a burst of
laughter from his three companions.
"Oh. you was, Avas you? I'm a respectable  married  woman,   I   am."
'Shouldn't  have  thought   it   if  you
'adn't told nie," he said politely;
"really you do surprise mc!"
The little woman took no notice.
"Want to go to Stakcnroe," she Avar-
bled. "Conductor, put me off at Stakcnroe. Do you 'car me? It's my belief you're drunk. Conductor, you're
very, very drunk. I—hie—shall report yer tomorrer. I 'ave a friend
avIio owns these busses, I 'ave, and I
shall tell 'im when I sees 'im you're
drunk. What's yer number, constable"—(she was getting very mixed now)—"I shall report yer."
A short, sea-faring man swung
himself on to thc 'bus and sat doAvn
beside her. "'Evenin', ole dear," she
nudged him playfully; '"Ow arcyer?"
"I'm orl right," he answered. '"Ow's
yerself?"
"Fine."
'"Ave  a  drink?'  he  suggested.
"Don't mind if I do, old dear, not
that I never take hanythink, yer know,
but as yer so pressin' I will. I feel
so shaky, praps a drink will dome
good."
Ik- passed her the bottle, and she
look a long drink. 'Frc's to yer," the
little old lady hiccoughed.
The seafaring man following her
example. "Nasty night, ain't it! beastly night, I calls il."
She was glaring savagely again at
the comic young man. "What some
folk want to come in a decent 'bus
for I can't think; they ortcr take cabs,
they ort. They ain't lit to shoshiate
wiv decent people, they ain't."
"Why do yer then?" the young man
asked.
* "Oh, do bc quiet! You are awful!"
his young woman simpered. "Isn't he,
now?"
"'Frc yer are, mem, get orf 'ere
for Edith Road." The conductor beckoned to thc stout old lady. She slowly gathered together her numerous
packages.
"Dahn this street, turn to thc left,
and its two turnings after that.'
"But 1  want to go to Edif Road." 10

New Year's Resolutions

Why not resolve to do all in your power to beautify Victoria by beautifying; yonr oavii premises?   A sensible resolution because
there is money in it for you.    Every merchant owes to himself and more so to his customer good service.   You cannot render
rood service without eood iiaht.
Beautify Victoria by Beautifyinq Your
®wn Store wi,h Osram Tunqsten Lamps
You know how you feel Avhen you pass or enter a dimly lighted shop. It gives you a A'ery poor opinion of that certain man's
business. You feel that he cannot be doing very much and you can't but believe him when he says "Nothing doing"! Good
lighting speaks prosperity and prosperity begets prosperity.   It is only natural for people to patronize the store that is well lighted.

A Avcdding of interest to Victorians
Avas celebrated recently in Portland
when Miss Hilda Anita Englehardt, a
well known Victorian, daughter of
Mrs. J. F. Englehardt, 60s Fort St.,
was married to Mr. Thomas Angos-
ton Sutherland. Only the immediate
relatives of the bride and groom were
present at the ceremony.
A very pretty and charming Aved-
ding was celebrated recently at Happy Valley, Metchosin, Avhen Miss Wil-
hclmina Flesh and Mr. Benjamin H.
Sturgeon were united in marriage by
the Rca'. Thos, W. Gladstone, at the
home of the bride's parents. The
bride was gowned in a dainty white
embroidered silk and carried a bouquet of white carnations and smilax.
The bridesmaid Avas Miss Alberta
James, who Avas attired in Avhite. After the ceremony a dainty Avedding
breakfast was served at which a
large number of guests were present.
Some very costly and handsome presents were received by the young couple. The bridegroom is the foreman
of the Vancouver Island Power Company. The honeymoon is being spent
in Los Angeles.
A very charming double Avedding
was celebrated recently at the home
of Mr. D. D. England, 312 St. James
Street, when the following couples
wcre united in marriage: Mr. D. H.
England and Miss Edith Lejeunc,
avIio  were supported    by    Mr.  Fred

Mr. Allan C. Pindon and Miss Eve-
lyne E. England, avIio were attended

and pink carnations. After the marriage a Avedding breakfast Avas served at which many friends of the
young couples were present. Later
in thc day they left for Vancouver,
where they intend residing for the
future.
*    *    *
A first recital was given on Thursday, December 15th, by Miss Gladys
Flinton at the house of Miss S. F.
Smith, 011 Dallas Road. Miss Flinton comes of a musical family, her
father, the Rev. Mr. Flinton, of Saanich, has an excellent voice, whilst
her mother is a charming singer.
Miss Flinton in every way justifies
her descent, for though slightly nerv- !
ous at her first appearance in pub- 1
lie, she gave some fine renditions, not- '
ably Chopin's Valse Brilliante, Pad-
crewski's Flodie and Mendelssohn's
Spring Song. Miss Flinton plays
with great feeling and expression and
her technique, considering her age,
leaves nothing to bc desired. A brilliant career lies before this talented
young lady. Assisting in the recital
were Master Curtis Dean, Miss Florence Miles and the Misses Watson,.
Clarke, Heaney, Bendroit and Williams, Avho all acquitted themselves
well. A pleasing feature of the recital was the rendering of two vocal
solos by a former pupil of Miss
Smith's. The lady has a magnificent
voice and will doubtless rise to a
high position in her profession. The
Rev. J. H.'S. SAveet presided and
commented more than favourably on
the meritorious showing of the pupils. Miss Smith may well congratulate herself on having marked anothcr
red-lctter day in her calendar of success. THE WEEK,  SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24,  1910

A Romance of the
Slums
(Continued from Page 3)
She did not envy Tilda, which
showed that after all her deepest feelings remained untouched.
On Boxing Day she decided that
she must get out of Flinders Court,
so as not to come in contact with the
Avedding party, ivhich Avould be certain
to flaunt itself in the neighborhood
of the girl Avhom Joe had cut.
That Avas how Tilda spoke of Sally,
ancl certainly she Avas determined that
Sally should miss nothing of the pang
of the final renunciation.
* * * *
But on Boxing Day morning, just
when Sally Avas tidying up the house
and wondering what excuse she could
make to Tim for leaving him for a
whole day, something happened.
Christmas came to Flinders Court.
Hc did not come in a white robe,
Avith a hood over his snowy hair, but
in the guise of a seafaring man,
Avhose face was bronzed and tanned
with suns of many climes and many
seas. He had a great asking for
those of the name of Meadows, and
finally with much noise and deep
breathing made his Avay up rickctty
stairs of the tenement house where
the orphans dwelt. He knocked
loud and long at the door and Sally
with a mop in her hand, ran to open
it, wondering Avhoever the intruder
might be.
"Anyone of the name of Meadows
ere, little maid?" said the big stranger Avith a half twinkle in his eye.
"Yes, sir, please sir, I'm Sally Mea-
lows, an' Tim 'e's inside."
"Right-o!" said the stranger, and
jefore she could resist he had swoop-
id down upon her small sweet face
ind kissed it. heartily.

"Kiss me my dear, I'm your Uncle
Ted, an' proper glad I bc ter see yer.
I kin tell yer. You're very like your
pore mother, an' she was the prettiest girl on Bromley Common when I
Avent away. Whcer's the boy?"
'"Ere," piped Tim's small shrill
voice, and the big man stepped into
the clean bright little living room.
When he saw the pale-faced lad lying
on thc old settee, something thick
came in his throat, and a moisture
rose in  his eyes.
"Well, I'm dashed!" he said and
stooped over the little lad with such
tenderness on his hig kind face that
Sally though very excited, loved him
for it on the spot.
"So you lives 'ere all by your little selves eh, an' keep the Avolf from
the door?"
'Sally does!" piped Tim whom
much reading of Miss Emmy's gift
books had made familiar Avith the expression.
"An' you 'ad rather a dull Christmas, eh, well you ain't, goin' to 'ave
any more dull Christmasses, see, nor
keep any more wolves from the door,
little Avoman, now your Uncle Ted's
got a 'old of you. I've got a bit of
brass, and dash it, ef we don't make
t 'spin together. An' we'll go to the
ountry to live and among the green
elds and the cows an' the lambs, the
ttle chap will get strong enough to
1tX.3bo.ut,. eh, .w.on'.t. tlij)*,. be .fine?,",.
Sally could not speak for her tears.
Deep down in her heart Avas a warm
comforted feeling that Somebody up
high, the Somebody about whom
Miss Emmy had told them, had
Avatched over them, and made Himself the Father of the fatherless. The
bridal party came through Flinders
Court in the course of the day with
much noise and laughter, hoping to
attract the attention of the pair in
the upstairs room. But Father Christmas had come to Flinders Court and
spirited them away.
TROPICAL TRIFLES
(By Onlooker)
The great topic of the moment is,
of course, Christmas and Christmas
presents. But as the latter are as a
rule no trilling matter the subject
would be out of place in these columns. In any case, we hear enough
about Christmas and "Merry Christmas!" and the inevitable answer
"Same to you," until Ave are pretty
well bored with the subject. As for
presents, I think the majority of
people find them a perfect pest, especially in this country Avhere it is
the custom to give not merely to the
children, but to everybody you have
ever spoken to. Somebody complained the other day that this was the
time of year when some grumbled
because a few children asked them
for almanacs. Almanacs forsooth!
You have got to "pony up" something
pretty good for the dear little innocents now-a-days, or you will be the
subject of severe criticism at their
hands, which reminds me of the remark of a modern child to its companion as written in the book of a
lady Avriter of no little fame. "How
do you like your new papa? I thought
he Avas a mean cuss Avhen he was
mine."
We do not hear so much about
those little shortcomings known as
"bad form" as we used to do, except Avhen artists begin to tell us
that the figures of Avomen are degenerating. A modern English artist
declares that this is indeed the case,
especially in American Avomen, Avhose
inc.* easing angularity he attributes to
athk'ic sports and generally too masculine occupations. Judging by the
antics of the English suffragettes one
would think that American women
would have to take second place
when, it came to a question of athletics for the gentle sex. However,
it is stated on good authority that iu
certain cannibal islands of the terrible Southern Pacific Ocean to eat
your neighbour is rapidly becoming
the height of bad form that no respecting cannibal islander would be
guilty for a moment, so let us hope
that even in this commercial age the
liner things of life, such as "good
form," and "bad form," will not pass
entirely away.
It is funny how extremes meet.
The British Peerage have been flouted for calling in the aid of American
dollars ■ when the fair American girl
decided that a title and a| place in
Burke were a "bit of alright," and
Lord Bertie found her really charming even if "Mamma and Poppa" were
rather impossible doncherknow. But,
hoav we hear that even the democratic
John Redmond is calling for thc aid
of American dollar's, and beseeching
the American Irish League to find
tlie needful. He says that the only
impediment to Home Rule is that
horrid House of Lords, but judging
by the actions of the gallant men of
Ulster, he is leaving a great deal out
of his calculations.
Turning to local trifles, Victoria
has had a comparatively quiet week
with only the usual number of complaints from taxpayers. In a letter to
the Editor of the Colonist a correspondent is guilty of thc very justifiable crime of asking the Hospital
Management for a financial statement
of the accounts of the late Hospital
ball, besides the mere statement of
the net profits. The Management
wcre quite sniffy about it but complied grudgingly with the request.
Everybody likes to know what happens t'o-tlijsir money and thc financial statement of tht Ball Was read
with interest by many who had contributed to the tune of several dollars.
The correspondent is quite sorry the

the catering cost $1.75 a person, and
he only got a cup of cold bouillon, a
plate of cold ham or sausage and a
dish of ice cream. Possibly those
fortunate enough to be in at the first
table may have got something a little better, but I myself heard a lady
say she was made positively ill from
that $1.75 supper (though I don't
think she ate too much) and possibly
might do as Avell for $.75 and give
sweet charity the benefit of the dollar.

THE  LAST  BUS  HOME
(Continued  from  Page 9)
"Well, mum, this is Edif Road."
"But you said you passed Edif
Road."
"This is the nearest wc do pass
Edif Road, mum."
"I think it is a wicked shame telling
people you go to Edif Road, when
you don't." She had reached the step
of the omnibus now. "Good-night,
Eliza. Tell 'em at 'ome I'll come up
a Sunday to tell yer 'ow Rose is if I
get  a chanst, and bring the baiby."
The conductor helped her off. "It's
a shame, I want to go to Edif Road
and yer put me orf 'ere "
The omnibus rolled away. "Like
me to take the bloomin' 'bus up to
the door praps and knock, too. No
pleasing some of 'cm."
"I Avant to go to Stakenroc," sang
the little old woman again.
"Lor love yer, mother, you've passed Station Road a long time ago,"
the sea-faring man laughed.
"I 'aven't," she snapped; "I know
I 'aven't. I Avant to go to Stakenroc,
condukr, do you 'car me?"
The conductor stopped the 'bus.
"You'd better get orf. Come on,
'urry up."
She gathered her tattered skirts
round her. "Goo' night, ole dear." She
lurched on to the step, and embraced
the conductor. "Give us a kiss, dearie,
you're the only pal I ever 'ad, you arc,
you knoAV you are!"
'"Ere, cheese it," he groaned; "get
off!"
As she did so be pulled the bell
sharply twice, and the 'bus started.
The little old woman held out her
arms. "I've loved 'im eversencc 'e
Avas  a baiby.    .
Love me an' the world is mine!" .   .
Her voice was lost in the darkness.
"What yer got yer 'and tied up for,
matey?" the seafaring man demanded
of his vis-a-vis.
"Cut mc finger orf wiv a 'atchet.
'Urt myself, too, I tell yer. I'm a-goin'
to Thomas 'Orspital, I am." He tenderly nursed his hand as he talked.
"He do look bad, poor thing, don't
he" a frail girl whispered.
Thc conductor shrugged. "'E's orl
right; that child's 'is," nodding towards a girl on the opposite side;
"she'll look after 'im. A good, girl she
is, always looks arter 'im, she does."
The two youths rose from their
seats. "Sorry Ave can't come any further girls, but time won't allow. See
yer tomorrer, eh? We 'ave 'ad a time,
eh, Avot; Good night. Come 011, Alf."
1 They passed out and the comic young
gentleman pretended to fall off. His
antics were received with approval
by the two young ladies.
"He's a cough-drop, that Joe," said
j one of them, "hc    docs    make    you
laugh.    Hc ought to go on the stage,
: he ought reely.    He's quite as good
;is  a  pantomime,  ain't he?  Paid  our
j fares,   too.   Quite   the   proper   thing;
looking forward  to seeing 'im again,
ain't you?"
"Praps they Avon't turn up. Thc
other fellers Ave Avent to meet didn't!"
"Oh, them, they wasn't up to much.
'Ere's our street; come on."
"Mind the step, girls," the conductor said.
Cheeky thing, who are you speaking
to?"
"Wow! Wow!" he retorted.
The seafaring man had gone to
sleep, and the seedy little man Avas
preparing to dismount. "Want to get
off at the next street," he said.
"Thought some'ow you Avas drivin' a
taxi, I did."
The conductor jerked the bell
sharply. "Some people can't mind
their own business. I ain't drivin' a
taxi, so there!"
The 'bus stopped. "Meant no 'arm,
matey. Only thinked as W you Avas
.drivin'—" He Avas left standing 011
the pavement.
"Is it bleedin' now?" the faded Avoman  asked of  the  injured  gentleman.
"Rather," he replied, "like any-
think. Been bleedin' for hours and
hours." He had his hand tied up in a
red pocket-handkerchief. "I'll be glad
when I get to the 'Orspital, I can tell
yer. It 'urts orful."
The seafaring man woke up. "Near
the King's 'Ead, pard?"
"Yus. next stop?"
"Orl right, Avant to get orf there."
The 'bus sloAved down. '"Ere you
are! King's 'Ead!" The bus started
again.
"'E does look bad. Shouldn't wonder if 'e fainted," said the faded Avoman, '"Oav are yer now?"
"Orful! it's bleding somethink 'or-
rible."   He staggered across the 'bus
and  sat  down   beside  her  and  proceeded to give her details. The con-,
ductor was writing on his board the
numbers of the tickets and whistling
dolefully, "Love me and the world is
mine." Thc little girl took no notice
of her father's  narrative, but looked
steadily out of the window. When she
rose the conductor pulled the bell.
I    "'Ere's Thomas Street!"   The   girl
1 touched her father on the shoulder; hc
I got up, still talking.
j    "But this ain't St. Thomas's Hospital," said the faded woman.
The little girl took no notice, but
led her father out. As the 'bus started again the faded woman spoke
sharply to the conductor: 'E Avanted
to go to the 'Orspital. Cut 'is finger orf, poor tiling. Why didn't you
take 'im on? 'E'll bleed to death, 'e
will. Nice thing, goin' and putting
out a poor man wot wants to go to
the 'Orspital!"
The conductor Avinked at her.
"Ain't nothink wrong wiv 'im," hc
said slowly, "'ad a drop too nv'.ch and
when 'e 'as a drop too much 'e always says as 'ow 'e's chopped 'is finger orf. 'Is gal goes an' fetches 'im
'ome. Good gal she is, but there
ain't nothink wrong wiv 'im.
The faded Avoman was unconvinced.
"Looked awful pale,'e did: Nice thing
if 'e bled to death."
"But there ain't nothink Avrong wiv
'im. 'E ahvays says that. . . . All
change!"
The omnibus stopped Avith an air
of finality. The faded woman sighed
and descended. "Looked mighty pale"
she muttered as she walked away.
Thc conductor took no notice. Hc
walked round to the front of the om
nibus, and gave an imitation in dumb
show of a thirsty man disposing of a
pint of beer.
"I could do with a gurgle," the motorman .said .thickly. ."This 'ere petrol
is worse than horses. . . 'Oav Avas
your little lot inside the bloomin' microbe chamber?"
The conductor expectorated, and
the motorman sighed sympathetically.
"If it 'ad been anywhere but 'Am-
mersmith," the former muttered, picking up his original theme where it
had been broken off; "if it 'ad been
anyAvhere but 'Ammersmith I might
have married 'er. But 'Ammersmith—
Avot would I want to live at 'Ammersmith for?"
"Gawd knows," the motorman replied dreamily as he led the way into
the public bar.

WHAT HUSBANDS ADMIRE
Men admire in their wives the virtue
of sympathy, which means a heart that
Is readily touched with a tale of Joy or
sorrow. They like Intelligence, but If
they can only have one or other of the
two qualities in their helpmeets, then
they would generally prefer that the
heart should be stronger than the brain.
They above all like women who seem
always to possess a continual source
of sunshine in themselves, and whose
faces are an index of the contented
mind, whieh is said to be a continual
feast. They like a woman to dress
well; hut that Is not necessarily either
expensively or conspicuously. They
want in women companions, who know
enough of the world ancl Its ways, and
of what is going on there, to be able
to talk intelligently to them of all In
whieh they. themselves are interested,
and of their hopes and fears for the
future, so that they may be ready with
eneering words of sympathy and encouragement when they are needed.

science.
