However  the system has worked so smoothly  and so Bucceasf ully that the limit has  been increased already to eleven  pounds, which has resulted in greatly  extending the usefulness of the service  to the general public.  1H8-ACT DRAMA "HIE IHE  CLOUDS" LOCAL ACTORS SCORE A HIT  last act the large audience waa deeply  interested then surprised and lastly  enthusiastic, setting the seal of their  approval by rapturous applause.

I/nit^ Stat^^-Ofowsiaiidr  is a city of about the same size as  Montreal, and when conditions are  noted'in the American oity it will be  recognized how much better Canadians are  under  similar conditions.  Cleveland's unemployment figures  are difficult to obtain, but they probably are somewhat less than Detroit's  ���������perhaps 40,000 wouh} no be below the1  mark:  "This is the worst winter that we  have bad in'CleveJand'fiitfoe 1008.'* said  Jas. F. Jackson, director of the ?Assp-  oiated Charities. The destitute of  Cleveland will cost about $90,000 thiB  year, of which more than $36,000 is being spent on food, clothes, and shelter.  "This month is the worst February  that we have experienced in six years,  and I don't think things will get muoh  better for some weeks yet, probably  not before tlie middle of march at any  M-teY.        ,; :y"-.  "Tha iron, steel, and other big employing in dustries have been laying off  thousanda of men, and with many of  them this is jUMt about* the time when  thier credit is beginning to run out.  When certain $4 and |5 men are laid  olf that mean that they will compete  for $2 and $8 jobs with tho lowor priced  men, and that makes conditions of distress even more- acute.  V'-The 600 families that are our hands  are all local?onos���������no transients. A  fow months ago the factories had to  run short handed, because thoy  couldn't got largo enough working  forces. It's a sadly dlfforont tale now."  No suoli conditions prevail in Montreal. And this state of olfrlrs < ta ?' in  Olovoland in ap'Ite of the Domocratlo  tariff tinkering.

MORE   GOOD  LEGISLATION-  Once again the Borden gov-  eraine*** wtfuttn in the keeping  ot its promises to the people.  In tlie r^lw������iy ^���������consolidated  bill introduced in the senate  yestesday by senator Lough-  eed there iff evidence most  positive of the govcrumcuta  determination to legislate in  the   interests of   the public  the. corpora-  rather thau for  ti.ons.  It is impossible to grasp  from the summarized report  an, adequate idea of its scope,  or of its far-reaching effect  when put in ' operation. Enough is shown, however,'to  give assurance that under it  the people will have far greater consideration shown them  than has been. It is also evident that the government is  determined to simplify as  much as possible the procedure in all dealings with thc  railways, and after the bill becomes laws the railway commission will become a more  ever important body in this  country.  It is not to be suppose this  consolidation of the railway  act Will be permitted without  protest from the railway companies. That they will be  stubborn in their resistance is  not, however, likely.

He says:  "We once knew a man who was too  stingy to take tho newspaper in his  home town, and always wont over to  borrow his neighbor's paper.  Oneevening he sent bis\ son over to  borrow; the paper, while the son was on  his way he ran into a large stand of  bees, ahd in a few minutes hisface looked like a summer squash.  "Hearing the agonized cries of the son  the father ran to his assistance, aud in  doing eo ran into a barb wire fence,  cutting a handful of flesh irom his anatomy and ruiuing a $4 (sale price) pair  of trousers.

A famous definition of the quality of  humor is.this: "For this humor Is an  adjunct diviuo; it is a value of life; it  makes for greater things than clean  laughter from the lurigs. It is the root  of tolerance, the proof of patience; it  suffers long and is kind; serves to  tune each little life harmony with the  world harmony about it; keeps the  heart of man sweet, his soul modest.  And at the end, when tho light thickens ond the mesh grows tight, humor  can shape the suffering vigils of tho  sleepless, can soften pain, can brighten  the ashy road to death."  Hard to Say.
