THE WEEK, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1909
One Dollar Per Annum
With the electoral campaign
The now ten days old, it is pos-
Campaign. __\_\e to make a forecast
with some degree of probability as to its outcome. It is stating no
more than the truth to say that the pub-
1 lie attitude throughout British Columbia
1 grows stronger every day in its support
of Mr. McBride's policy. The benefits
which will be conferred on the whole Province by the construction of the Canadian
Northern are so obvious, and the route selected traverses so rich ancl varied a section of territory, tbat the most influential
districts throughout the Province are lined
up, irrespective of Party, in support of a
policy which means so much to each man's
individual constituency. In this connection emphatic and favourable comment is
heard everywhere upon the fact that the
route of proposed construction is on a line
which benefits constituencies notoriously
hostile to Mr. McBride's administration,
no less than it does other places whose support of the Provincial Government has always been a thing to be relied on. The
fact of the matter is that, the closer the
Provincial Government's Bailway Policy
is looked into, the more clear do its benefits appear to the whole of British Columbia, and the more decisive is the public's attitude in its favour. It is each day
becoming more clearly realised that this
policy is of so beneficial a nature to the
welfare of every section of British Columbia, that it ceases to be a matter to be discussed from the standpoint of party politics at all. In a word, it is not a Conservative policy or a Liberal policy, but a
British Columbia policy; ancl, being such,
Mr. McBride has, in bringing it before the
people, achieved the height of true statesmanship.
Looking at home, the past
Victoria Week has shown beyond a
Benefits. doubt how much the con
struction of the Canadian Northern is going to mean to
Victoria. Politicians may squabble as
to this or that feature of the proposed railway policy, but the man on
the street, the man in the store, the man
in the office, and the investor, have no
doubt as to the desirability of Mr. McBride's railway policy in the interests of
Victoria. Ancl their opinion is eloquently
testified to by the sharp upward rise in
the prices of city and outside property
wliieh has taken place in the last few days,
culminating on Thursday in the purchase
by the Bank of Toronto of a business site
on Yates street at the record price of
$2,000 per front foot. It is very evident
that the people of Victoria have made up
their minds that the McBride railway
policy is the policy for Vietoria and for
Vancouver Island, and in taking this view
of the results, their opinion is amply warranted by the growing influx of capital
which is setting this way.
, A Good
f'VSign.
The result of the bye-election on Thursday in the
Bermondsey division of
Southwark, a Parliamentary borough of London, is a very significant indication of the fact that the loud
talk of Mr. Lloyd-George and the smaller
robbers who follow in his train does not
by any means represent the public sentiment of Great Britain, even in what may
be called Labour Constituencies. The
figures are sufficiently astonishing, considering that Bermondsey is a typical working class constituency, the vote being:
Dumphreys, Unionist, 4,278; Hughes,
Liberal, 3,291; Dr. A. Slater, Socialist,
1,435. The struggle was a straight fight
between Budget and Tariff Keform, and
has from its commencement been regard
as a test case whereby the strength of the
opposing parties might be estimated, with
a view to forecasting tbe results of the general election which cannot now be long
deferred. It is a matter of no little gratification to all who have the true interests
of the Motherland sincerely at heart, that
the first combat waged in the great
struggle which is coming between the
forces of rascality and the forces of law
ancl order should have resulted so decisively in favour of the latter.
The spectacle of Mrs.
Woman, Chapin    burning    ballot
Lovely Woman.   T-,oxes aI1(j election officials
with the deadly acid
known as corrosive sublimate, on one side
of the Atlantic, and Mrs. Pankhurst calmly excusing the miserable female's cowardly crime in a public interview on this side
of the water, brings to the front very emphatically the need of corporal punishment
for this class of women. It is argued by
some sentimental person that corporal punishment is degrading, but nothing on earth,
or anywhere else, could degrade these un-
sexed creatures more than they have already degraded themselves. You can never
govern a woman by reason. She only
knows two controlling motives—love and
fear. The first of these great incentives
to upright ancl decent living has long since
been cast aside by these women, who have
cut themselves adrift from family affection or pubjic respect. It is, therefore, an
excellent time for the strong hand to teach
them, by the salutory influence of severe
bodily pain, the error of their ways.
Jordan
River.
The approval of the Jordan
River power scheme by the
Lieutenant Governor on
Wednesday marks another
step forward in an enterprise in which not
only Victoria but practically tlie whole
south end of Vancouver Island is. concerned.* It is gratifying, as well as only
fair to tlie B. ('. Electric Eailway Company, to observe that, while tbe approval
given on Wednesday was a necessary official formality, tbe Company have not
waited to receive it before commencing
work. In fact, ever since the by-law
passed, a large force of me.n have been
engaged in the preliminary operations necessary before the main body of the work
commences. The certificate of approval
requires that the company shall commence
work within thirty days ancl the scheme
be completed within three years. The B.
C. E. Pi. are not the kind of people who
allow the grass to grow under their feet
when they make up tlieir minds to extend
their plan of operations—as witness the
magnificent work they have done in the
past three or four years in and around the
city of Vancouver—and, before the three
years are more than half over, some wry
considerable changes are liable to be noticed in Victoria suburbs.
The    fact    that    $21,000
Theatre worth of the stock in Vic-
Stock Sold, toria's projected new theatre has already been purchased is a very gratifying indication of
a successful outcome to the undertaking.
Still more gratifying is the fact that of
tbis amount $10,000 worth of stock was
purchased by Messrs. Mackenzie & Mann,
of the Canadian Northern. Considering
tlie well known business foresight of these
two gentlemen, and thc fact that they are
in a most excellent position to judge
whether Victoria's prospects aro such as to
render the erection of an up-to-date theatre
a paying financial proposition, their purchase of this stock gives it an endorsement as a sound investment which is worth
a great deal more than the mere face value
of the money.
The assassination at Harbin
The Usual this week of Price Ito,
Mistake. the most prominent figure
amongst Japanese statesmen, is, when one takes into consideration
the high character, broad and progressive
aims and great ability of the dead man,
one more illustration of the well known
fact that political assassinations almost invariably occur to men who have least
merited so violent a termination of their
earthly career. When the Eussian Nihilists blew up the grandfather of the present Czar on that cold March day twenty-
eight years ago, they set back the day of
constitutional freedom in Eussia to an extent that even now cannot yet be foreseen,
for the murdered monarch was the only
man whom the Eomanoffs have yet produced who combined a merciful disposition with political foresight and tbe
strength of character necessary to handle
the two classes of extremists over which he
ruled. It is now well known that, had he
lived, conditions in Eussia would have
been far advanced from what they are today. The murders of President Lincolu
ancl President Garfield on this side of the
water, and those of the late King of Italy,
the Empress of Austria, ancl the late King
of Portugal, are all instances of the same
foolish mistake. The administration of
the affairs of Korea as mapped out by the
capable and far-seeing mind of the deceased Japanese statesman, was such as
would have raised the inhabitants of the
Land of the Morning Calm to a very much
higher standard than they could ever havo
arrived at by their own unaided efforts.
It. is a poor kind of patriotism that has to
turn to knife and revolver to achieve its
ends, and Korea will fare very much better
than she deserves if Japan carries out her
expressed intention of pursuing unaltered
the programme regarding that country
laid down by a man whose untimely end
is deplored by right thinking men of all
nations.
Tliis has been Thanksgiving
Civil week, and it is safe to say
Servants. that in no hearts wore joy
ancl gratitude more strongly
in evidence than in those of the Provincial
Civil Servants whose salaries have received
an increase consequent upon the bringing
down of the report of the Commission ap
pointed at the close of last Session by the
Provincial Cabinet to adjust the important
question of grading the different employees in the Civil Service of British
Columbia. The task of the Civil Service
Commission has, by its very nature, been
a lengthy one, but it has been done very
thoroughly, and, as was provided by the
Bill passed at the last session of the Legislature, al lincreases of salary are to take
effect from the first of April last. The
arrears of increased salary thus coming to
those Civil Servants whose rate of remuneration has been found worthy of increase
by the Commission will thus amount to
a very handsome bonus, ancl it is no wonder that Thanksgiving Day to these fortunate ones was no unmeaning word.
A Mystery.
The Liberal nominating
convention, which was to
have been held on Wednesday night, lias been postponed for reasons
not given, until an unknown date, and
speculation is rife in political circles as to
the meaning of the move—or rather ah*
sence of movement. As a matter of fact,
it is well known that there is a strong disinclination on the part of many possible
candidates on the Liberal side of politics
to allow themselves to bo led, even as the
Spring lamb, to the inevitable slaughter
which the 25th of November will bring
upon the Liberal party. Furthermore,
many strong upholders of Liberal doctrines, both in Victoria ancl throughout the
Province, have not hesitated to declare
publicly that, iu the interests of the general welfare of British Columbia, they
are not prepared to place themselves in
opposition to the railway policy of the
Provincial Government, which they frankly acknowledge to be conceived in the best
interests of all classes of the people. With
prominent men of their own party holding
such views, and with considerable dissension in their ranks caused by numerous
illustrations of the said old story of the
unequal distribution of wealth, it is little
wonder that the chiefs of the party have
found it advisable to put off to some other
date a gathering whieh would have undoubtedly included many elements—but
not that of harmony.
The present week has seen
Three two more gentlemen, in ad-
Richmonds.       dition to Mr. W. E. Oliver,
announce their intention of
entering the Muncipal field in Victoria as
candidates for the office of Mayor, namely,
Alderman Henderson and Alderman Turner. Both good men, but to all three
knowing them to be sincerely desirous of
advancing Victoria's welfare, The Week
would like to address one earnest request.
It is that when the Day of Decision draws
nigh, tlie three of them will meet in some
quiet place with a box of dice and allow
tho arbitrament of the ivory cubes to decide as to which of the three shall finally
ask the suffrages of the electorate. We
make the request for the reason that it is
a most unpleasant certainty, if all three
run, that the vote will be so split that a .
certain individual who formally occupied
the Mayoralty chair, will be able to rally
his forces and get auother term of office.

DISEASES OF THE MEMORY
A celebrated physician has written a very clever article
however, on the same subject, with a profusion of illustra-
upon this subject. Quite a volume could be published,
tions from the lives of Canadian politicians before and
after they got into office.
Lest you forget, we would call your attention to the
fact that connoisseurs drink G. H. Mumm & Co.'s "Selected Brut" because it is the only genuine brut wine
procurable, containing the natural alcohol of the grapes
from which it is produced. The alcohol in Mumm's
Selected Brut is not added as in other so-called "brut"
wines. Mumm's Selected Brut is a brut champagne of
the very highest quality. It is made of selected cuvees
of vintage years especially adapted for the making of
brut wines. This very dry and genuine brut wine is
absolutely pure without being heavy. The most critical
palates and delicate digestions can use G. H. Mumm's
Sleeted Brut and Extra Dry Champagnes without any
fear of unpleasant after effects.
If your dealer does not handle G. H. Mumm & Co.'s
champagnes kindly remember to 'phone us for the name
of one who does, for, of course, you desire the best.

*^^/iWV«»«*v(|w^/^)
I have put a good deal of time in
this week by taking in the shows—I
did so much street walking last week
and managed to earn a few cents that
I decided to spend it in amusement. I
took in all the moving picture houses,
which cost me but 30 cents, and here
I want to say that I have never had
so much for my money before. The
improvement that has been made in
film production is simply marvellous.
It was not more than five years ago
when it made one almost blind to
watch them, caused by the continuous
flickering, but now I notice that this
unpleasant feature is eliminated altogether. The style of pictures, too, has
undergone a considerable change, the
films are very much longer and far
more interesting, and the color work
in some of them is beyond description
by me. Each house that I visited was
packed. This is not an exaggeration,
but a fact. Wouldn't I just like to
have the receipts of all the houses for
one night—I might then be induced
to go into business for myself, although it Would probably impair my
health to'do so.
* * *
I have seldom seen my clear old
friend the Colonist so thoroughly
stirred up and so plain-spoken with
regard to what, I suppose, may be
called a religious matter as it was on
Thursday morning over the attempt
of the Lord's Day Alliance to deprive
the soft and much-enduring public
from access to its letter-boxes on
Sundays. "An unwarrantable ancl impertinent interference with other people's business." Just fancy the Colonist picking up spirit enough to make
an editorial remark like that about the
professional Christians who are fuch
a heavy burden on the people of Canada. But, seriously, thc Colonist is
perfectly right. The attitude of the
Lord's Day Alliance in this matter is
very decidedly impertinent, and also
an exceedingly bold attack on personal liberty. I have spoken to a lot of
business men in Victoria in connection
yvith the matter, and t hey, one and
all, without distinction of creed, denounce the conduct of the Alliance
and warmly endorse the sharp rebuke
administered to this high-handed and
intolerant body by the Victoria Board
of Trade. It is a mystery, to me anyway, what on earth reason there can
be for people like the Lord's Day Alliance folk going ramping up and down
Canada and setting the people by the
ears. I have been a resident of the
Dominion for a good many years, but
I have also lived in several other
countries, and I can truthfully say
that, in the matter of Sabbath observance and general law-abiding, Canada
can take a front place with any land
which I have ever seen. It certainly
seems to me that, in this matter, the
Colonist, like Jonah, 'does well to be
angry, even unto death."
* *   *
Twenty-one thousand dollars subscribed already for the erection of the
new theatre. That sounds pretty good
to me. And to see a firm of the
standing of Mackenzie & Mann placidly investing their good money in the
stock of the new institution is a pretty
good evidence of what the men who
have most to do with the Canadian
Northern think of the paying possibilities of a new theatre in Victoria. With
an example like this in front of them,
there is likely to be little hesitation
on the part of the public in financially
backing an institution which will fill
a long-felt want.
Speaking of the Canadian Northern
reminds me of a curious thing which
you may observe all around town. It
is that, although an election campaign
is on for practically the sole object of
determining whether the Canadian
Northern will be built or not, and although all the newspapers have got
their hands in each other's hair in
heated disputes to the worth or otherwise of the Provincial Government
Railway policy, the great public—
which, after all, has really got the
final decision in the matter—has apparently already made up its mind
that the railway is going to be built.
A sharp movement in real estate, numerous arrangements for the starting
of new industries and the expansion of
existing ones, a rapid rise in certain
coast mining stock, and a general air
everywhere of confidence and progress, are very noticeable, and are in
sharp contrast to the unsettled state
of the public mind which is usually
to be found when the two big political
parties lock horns in an election duel.
They say straws show which way the
wind blows. This is a pretty big
straw, and I think the direction it
travels is in that of a Conservative
victory of a most overwhelming character on the 25th of November.

I notice wtih pleasure that one of
the evening dailies jumps with both
feet upon the over-zealous official who
put a stop to the soccer game at the
North Ward Park last Saturday. I
also observe with pleasure that the
dear old City Council was real mad
with that official, too. This is a good
sign, and a timely one. The official
in question appears to have acted in a
thoroughly official manner—that is to
say, he showed neither tact, discretion
nor a knowledge of his place. There
are one or two other public servants
of his stripe knocking around the
neighborhood, and the list has shown
of late a disagreeable tendency to increase. These men need a sharp lesson to teach them that they are the
public's servants and not the public's
masters. They must learn that, when
certain powers and authorities are
given to their sort of person to attend
to this or that branch of the public
needs, it does not mean that they are
entitled to bully and interfere with
respectable citizens. The United
States is the only civilized country—
so called—where the man in brass buttons is allowed to play t he tyrant
over the people who feed and clothe
him. We are not going to allow Canada to be degraded to the level of
the United States by allowing our free
people to be subject to the insolence
of their hired under-strappers.
£&*
is a class of amusement that is minus
of   monotony   and   always   full    of
changes—you can smile, look sad, or
hold your sides with laughter.
New Grand Theatre.
Aside from the other unique attractions and the usual features the Grand
show next week will be specially attractive to music lovers for Manager
Jamieson has secured the Rusticana
trio of Italian musicians who will render a number of original vocal and
instrumental selections. The members
of the trio are Elies Crema, violinist;
Domenica Carra, baritone, and EnriGO
Fontana, tenor. They are real Italian
street singers and accomplished musicians. They have several good songs
in the native tongue to violin accompaniment. It is a very high class re-
lined act and should be much appreciated.
"Jessie Jack and Jerry," a comedy
feature, eccentric and odd, is to be
played here by Bradley Martin and
Company. It will probably make an
instantaneous hit as it is different
from the rest of the comedy sketches
on tour and bubbles over with humor
and naturalness that is irresistable.
Bradley Martin plays the leading part
and his support in other cities has always been good so it will probably be
high class here also.
Billy Clark is to be with Victorians
again and will bring his own drop
curtain. He will appear in "From
Onionville Virginia." He guarantees
to make an audience laugh in spite
of itself and his appearance here will
be a pleasure.
"Like Mother Used to Make" is
what Crimmins and Gore will show as
the fourth act. The act contains lightning changes and shows a Bowery
restaurant. Miss Gore will be seen
as the Boston Belle in the latest
Eastern finery.
Thomas J. Price is going to sing
"Any Old Time At All" and there will
be new moving pictures that will delight old as well as young people.

Pantages
Mr. Pantages does not seem to be
afraid to put more money into vaudeville production; this is evidenced by
the improvement of his circuit over
three years ago. Last week, and, for
that matter, this week, Pantages' offering was exceptionally good, and
numerous Victorians commented upon
the growing popularity of that house,
and if they don't soon erect a larger
structure they must give three shows
a night, for the place is barely large
enough at present. They are, however, going to build, and when they do
Victoria will have a vaudeville house
which will be another creditable building added to thc city's architectural
display. It is quite likely that this
improvement in vaudevilel is due to
the great popularity of the moving
pictures. If so, we can safely look
forward to tsill better shows. Some
people have remarked that Victoria
gets the tail end of the Grand and
Pantages' circuit, but this is ridiculous
when wc remember the Grand's production of this week and the pronounced improvement in Pantages'.
Vaudeville shows are always well patronized by the public in every city; it
Sporting Comment
The defeat of the B.C. Soccer team
that journeyed to San Francisco at
the hands of the California team came
as a surprise to many of the local supporters. It was naturally thought
that the B.C. team would win, and the
only matter of doubt was how big
the majority would be. To be beaten
in the first match and tied in the
second is not much of a record, and
it is hoped that the next time a B.C.
team is sent travelling that care is
taken that the best men are selected
and not left to a clique.
The decision of the football association regarding the complaint made
against Dufty of the Victoria West by
the Bays, was fully in accord with the
rules of the association, and their
manner in dealing with the report
from the B.C. A.A.U. shows plainly
that the majority of the players at
least are in favor of strict amateurism.
The game will have to be replayed,
and to those who like to witness a
soccer match the decision will be hailed with delight, as it will give them
an opportunity of seeing another good
game.
Now that the association has taken
action in this mater they have established a precedent, and it will go hard
with any club infringing the rule.
While referring to association football, I have been requested to call attention to the evident neglect of some
of the referees that are appointed to
officiate at the games. As I am informed that the referees are paid they
should at least notify the Secretary of
the association of their inability to be
present. For instance, on Saturday
the A.O.F. and Bays were scheduled
to play at Oak Bay, but at three
o'clock no referee had appeared, consequently the game was declared off,
notwithstanding that the grounds
were in good shape, although it was
raining slightly when the game should
have been called. In this instance
it worked a hardship on the A.O.F.,
as their full team was on the grounds
ready to play while the Bays had only
eight. If the referees are appointed
by the league, they should either act
or give some good reason why they
do not. When a game is advertised
those interested in the different clubs

want to see that game played if it is
at all possible, and if they are put to
the trouble to travel to Oak Bay and
get disappointed they will not do so
in a hurry again, and if the game is to
increase in popularity in this city the
patronage of every devotee is required.
It is noly a couple of weeks ago that
I referred to the death of a well-
known athlete of Ladysmith, and now
it is one from Vancouver. The death
of Robert Cameron occurred in the
Terminal City on Monday, the effect
of a blow received in a lacrosse match
received three years ago.
Bob has been out of the game for
the past couple of years, he having
played his last game against the Tecumsehs at the New Westminster exhibition of 1907, but there are still
many to remember his dashing r'ay
with the Vancouver team of 1905-6
and 7. On and off the field Bob was
always a gentleman, and if the game
happened to be going against him he
would only play the harder and try to
score the goal that would give his
team t he victory. He has now scored
his last goal, and his friends will always remember him as one who did
his best to uphold the national game
in British Columbia.     —UMPIRE.
A Corner on the Curb
(By Zoe Anderson Norris)
Mrs. Charles Wriglesworth will be
at  home    hereafter    on the    fourth
Thursday of each month.
*   *   *
Col. E. G. Prior spent a few days in
Vancouver during the week.
It was not on Wall street that the
blind man had a corner on the curb,
as would appear at first blush; but on
First avenue, there at Twelfth street,
at the pushcart market where the
pushcart people gather of a Saturday
morning and stand and sit on the
curbs yelling and selling their wares
from early dawn till dark and after.
"He has had that corner for twelve
years," grumbled the little old brown-
wigged orange woman who wanted it
herself.
She said it loud enough for him to
hear. I stood there in the sunlight
by his side and I heard it. How, then,
could it escape his ears, whose sense
of hearing was doubly quickened by
his loss of sight?
I hurried to speak with him for
fear he had heard.
"These short fat candles are not as
heavy as they used to be," I said,
"and they are dearer, too, aren't they?
Two cents apiece!"
The blind man took up a short fat
candle, and weighed it thoughtfully.
"They are not so heavy," he decided. "The panic has affected th-i
candle trade. But, then, it is a curious
thing that while the short fat candles
cheaper. You can have them for a
cent apiece to-day."
As a matter of fact all his candles
were cheap enough, cheaper than any
others in the neighborhood.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1909
CHRISTMAS
IS ONLY JUST AROUND THE CORNER
Thanksgiving Day passed, Christmas, the King of all Festivals, seems close upon us, when
the subject of cooking "the roast Beef of Old England" or the Xmas Turkey, etc., seems a
paramount subject.
Have you ever thought about cooking with
Gas? It is far superior and more convenient
than any other method,—safer, more economical,
much more simple and it ensures a more uniform
result.
fef^
Just try cooking with Gas and you'll never
wish to cook with anything else. Gas does away
with all the hard work and inconvenience of coal
or wood, it matters not what you desire to
prepare.
t V,
Call here at our Showrooms and let us practically demonstrate to you the safety, economy
and simplicity of Gas for cooking and heating purposes. Just now we are offering splendid values
in Gas Ranges, Gas Stoves, Gas Radiators and Gas Heaters.   Easy terms of payment if desired.

A CORNER ON THE CURB
(Continued from Page 4)
At first I wondered if he pilfered
them, but when I got to know the
blind man that thought perished. It
wauld be impossible for a man of his
broad philosophy to steal. Sometimes
when I had no need of candles I went
down to his corner on the curb to
hear him talk. I wrote small squibs
of his quaint views for the newspapers. Indeed, through this method,
the blind man became quite well
known, though he never knew it. As
well not, else the keen edge of his wit
might have worn thin. That often
happens.
At first, standing there in the sunlight bare-headed, my little market
satchel on my arm, I had it in my
heart to pity him.
Standing in the midst of the brilliancy of the pushcart market, revelling in the rich, ripe coloring of it—
the dark flashy-eyed women with the
red ribbons in their hair, the red-
cheeked men, the baskets o foranges
lighting the day along with the sunshine, the cool clear green of the
grapes, the yellow of the bananas—
seeing it all and he so near me in the
pitch dark, I pitied him. But that was
when I first knew the blind man.
Never afterward. I quite forgot in
time that he was blind; that is, I
forgot the pity of it. He seemed not
to care, so why should I care?
And how strange that he should
have selected the selling of candles,
the lighting of the homes of other
people, he who was blind!
"Don't you lose a lot of money?" I
asked him once, seeing a boy take a
box of five-cent matches, hand him
two cents, and skip.
"I suppose I do," he answered
tranquilly. "Some of these people are
thieves, I suppose, but then a lot of
them are honest, too. This world is
made up of the two kinds, good and
bad, but I have some friends around
here on the corner, who won't let mc
be robbed too much. 1 have been
here so long."
And remembering the little old
brown-wigged orange woman, I
thought hc had some enemies, too, as
he put five short fat candles in a paper
sack for me and ten long thin ones.
I handed him a new nickel. Pie fingered it thoughtfully and was about
to hand me back change for a quarter
when I took it from him and laughed.
"You see," I said, "how easy it is to
fool you. Thc nickel has as rough an
edge as the quarter. You can hardly
tell the difference. Now, how many
people have passed it on you for a
quarter, do you suppose?"
His face showed some chagrin at
being so easily gulled.
"A goocl many, maybe," he acknowledged, "but I do like to hear you
laugh. 1 can tell how you look, I
think, by the way you laugh. It Is
so joyous."
"How do I look?" I asked him.
"You are tall and slight and blue-
eyed," he answered, "and your hair is
yellow like sunlight, and you have
little white hands."
"Good!" said I, wishing some of my
male acquaintances might tell how I
look by my laugh, seeing I am so different.
Not that I wish they were blind.
Oh, no! But if they could bc just a
little blind!
But I was keeping customers away
from the blind man. I turned to go
and then it was that the little old
fiendish orange woman roosting ueai
said once more aloud, as she held out
an orange in each hand—hands thc
color of old parchment, and as
wrinkled—
"He has been on that corner for
twelve years, lt is time for him to go
away."
I turned on her. The blind man was
busy selling some short fat candles. It
may havc been that he hadn't heard.
"You ought to be ashamed of yourself!" I stormed, "to begrudge him
standing room in the world, and he
blind!"
For life is simple on the East Side
and you speak your mind.
"His blindness sells his candles for
him," she sniffed. "It brings him
luck. He ought to be glad of it.
He'd be plowing if he could see."
"Something will happen to you for
that," I threatened. "Either the goblins '11 get you or all the people will
quit buying your old oranges."
But nothing happened to her. Nothing ever happens to the wicked
people. They go on greenly flourishing the same as in the time of Solomon. The goblins passed her by and
the next Saturday morning when the
pushcart market was in full blast,
there she sat serenely on the corner
with her basket of oranges, and the
blind man was gone.
"Where has he gone?" I demanded
to know. She shook her brown-wigged head.
"How can I tell?" sTie queried. "He
may be dead for all I know. Want
some oranges? Three cents apiece!
Two for five!"
If I had been obliged to go without
oranges for the rest of my natural
existence, nothing could have forced
me to buy one from her. I walked
aimlessly along in the sunlight with
the screaming herd, thinking of the
blind man and wondering where he
had gone.   Had he died?
Well, if he had? There are worse
things than dying. Life sometimes.
And, anyway, I thought I knew with
what cheerful philosophy the blind
man would meet death.
I could fancy I heard him confronted all at once by the Bright Light
crying out:
"Ah!   How good it is to see!"
But he was not dead. I prowl about
much on the East Side, and in one of
my prowlings I came upon him. It
was a long way down on the Last
Side, not far from East Broadway,
on another corner, which was his bv
right this time, for he had bought it.
The blind man was running a news
stand on this corner.
I went gladly up to him and held
out my hand. I laughed as I said,
"How-de-do?"
"Ah," said he, smiling his bland
smile. "It is you? I would ha."-:
known you by your laugh if I hadn't
known you by your hand. 1" am glad
to see you."
"And how do you manage the selling of papers?" I asked him. "I can't
understand."
"I used to bc in this business long
ago," he told me. "It is easy when
you once get the hang of it. I put the
papers in an exact row. I know just
where they are. Now, here is a World,
here is a World, here is a Journal,
here The Herald, The Times, Thc
Evening Mail, The Globe, and The
Press," ancl he did put his finger correctly on each. "I get the boy to
place them for me every morning.
Then there is a little difference in
the size and shape of the papers. I
can tell them apart by that."
"But you can't tell which is yellow
ancl which has only the news that is
lit to print by their efel, can you?" I
questioned.
"No," he answered, "I can't tell
that," and he seemed a little downcast at the thought, so much so that
1 added lightly:
"Never mind. One has pictures and
the other hasn't, that is all. Ancl so
nobody pays you one cent ancl takes n
three-cent paper?" for at that moment a man came up and did thc
thing, hurrying light-footedly on,
fleeter, perhaps, and lighter for his
lack of conscience.
The blind man shrugged his shoulders.
"If they do," he said, "1 am none
tlle wiser, being blind, and what you
don't know hardly ever hurts you."
"Hut. doesn't it foot up at the end
of the day?" said I.
"Not so much as you would think,"
he reasoned, blandly. "There arc
thieves in the world, but there are
honest people, more honest than dishonest, I believe. These honest people and charitable often come by and
give me many times more than the
paper is worth because I am blind,
and so that evens it up, you see."
I bought a few papers and slipped
them back when he .had turned his
head. Why read the papers when you
write for thein?"
"I am sorry." 1 said as I counted
OUI the change, "that you have quit
selling candles on that curb. I miss
you. 1 liked your candles. They
burned so beautifully for my little parties. They were so heavy they burned
and burned,   No matter if they stayed
till four o'clock, I never had to
change the candles or light the gas.
Why did you leave that corner of
yours? When people sit on a pushcart corner so long it is theirs, isn't
it? You had stood on yours twelve
years."
Again the blind man shrugged his
shoulders.
"That was it," he said. "I stayed
too long. Everything changes in this
world. Nothing remains the same.
If you stay in a place too long you
get in a rut. You must keep on
changing if you want to keep up with
the times. And, then, too, there were
reasons."
I never asked the other reasons. I
knew. It must have been like pulling
himself up by the roots to leave that
corner of the curb to which he had
grown. It must have racked the
blind man's soul to change not only
his place of habitation but his occupation in life. Yet, not a word of complaint! Only a flush on his face that
faded and left it just a little sad.
Oh, yes; he must have heard what
the fiendish brown-wigged woman
said. Of course he had heard it. I
hated her for that. Never again did
I buy her oranges of a Saturday
morning when I went bareheaded to
the pushcart market with my net
satchel on my arm in the pushcart
style. I passed her without a word of
greeting.
But what matered that to her? What
did she care? She was in possession
of the blind man's corner on the curb.
