I  is openly said that-fre'dom  of expression is not.allowed in the-Uniou  and   the proposal to   call  a public  Jn ass  meeting   next week  to  fully  consider all pnases  of the probLem  is under way.    This does n<>t, however, involve  any wavering on   ihe  part  of the men to the principle of  organization.    They are as firm e-n  that question as ever; but they le-  gard the matter in a'great many of  its phases, as a public one requiring  a public btatement,  ami  the claim  that a public discussion might clear  up many of the difficulties now in  the way.    One story of the meeting  today says:���������that a motion endorsing action of the Federation in the  distribution   of   relief   funds   vvas  parsed   by a good majority.     The  news that the Cumberland men had  come out caused  no surprise here,  the general opinion being that they';  had no other course under the circumstances.

This lady was -..in excellent  voice^ and in response to a rapturous  encore  sang   v'The  Banks  of  Allan   Water."      Mr   J.   Denton's  song "The Wolf," was well received,  also  the  numbers  given   by   Mrs  Banks, Mr Hutchinson, and Misses  Bennie, Halcrow,.Denton, Abrams  and Cameron.    A large number remained for the dance Which   was  thoroughly   enjoyed,   music   being  provided by'Messrs Roy and Vater,  after which refreshments were served which was not the least pleasing  feature of the exercises.  The 26th of April was the 84th  anniversary of the institution of  Oddfellowship ' in America. The  Lodge attended divine service on  that day at Grace Methodist Church  where ah appropriate sermon was  pve*2hed by Rev Mr Wilkinsi n,  the Order attending in large numbers in full regalia.

It may be doubted whether those of  us who are able to obtain sufficient-  food .without difficulty can appreciate  the craving for sustenance experienced  by sea birds and other animals which  have often by the force of circumstances to fast for long periods. Gulls  Avill cat until they cannot fly and when  they find pilchards on board a boat  will continue their feast until they can  only lie down and gasp. A superfluity  of food comes at such long intervals  that when it docs come the avian intcl-  1 leet reels at the prospect, and what  seems a horn of plenty brings dire dis-  'aster. Seeing that 'gulls and gannets  kuow no better, we are not surprised  to hear of a John Dory, stntled to the  very mouth, floating helplessly on the  surface of the water, unable to escape  from a flock of sea birds which have  deprived it of its eyesight and will  quickly take away its life.  A snake which thrusts its head  through the palings to seize an unwary  frog and finds itself! unable to draw  back again with the frog in its throat  has wit enough to disgorge the amphibian and to deftly draw it through  by the leg so as to s-wallow it on the  safe side of the palings. But probably  a snake which happened to be on the  wrong side, in company with a frog,  would consume it on the premises and  so render itself incapable of wriggling  through the bars.���������Longman's..  ��������� ��������� Wo.-ilth   of   II'XMl.trsiM.

They were discussing charity in the  drawing room, and one of the gentlemen was inveighing with some sarcasm  against benevolent folk who. make donations and have their, names published iu the papers.  "Nearly all charitable acts," he said  eloquently, "have pride or vanity as  their motive. For my part I hate ostentation. I remember once when I  was traveling through a part of the  country where I was not known I came  upon a lonely .little station, where in  the waiting room there was fastened  to the wall a contribution box for the  benefit of the sufferers through recent  inundations.  "There was not a sour there, not a  person in the neighborhood kuew of  my presence or was acquainted with  my naine, and I went and dropped a  goldpiece into the box and slipped  away unseen. Now, sir, what I contend is that my secret offering was a  more meritorious oue  than if it.  hn-i  rditor Writes Thai Ail the U������d Weather  I>i>ci> ."CJot Dri^niale There.  Fred  G.  Forstcr,      editor     of   The  Mcdkiae  llat  News,   has  written     a  somewhat long" letter to The Chicago  Trioune,   defending  his  town   against  the  aspersion  that  all the  bad  weather    comes     from that plo.ee.       He  says:     "Medicine  Hat  is   a  town    of  "2,500 people, delig-htfitlly fcituated in  tlie  A'alley  of  the South     Saskatchewan  Ilivcr.    "We are 1,000 unlet.'west  of JLaKe  Superior,   :200  miles  east  of  the  JJociaas,   ancl  70  miles  north  of  the 31 onlana boundary  between  Canada and   the   United States.     To    bo  mole exact, our   latitude isiHO degrees  1    minute   north,   our   longitude   110  degrees 87 minutes .west, and  our  elevation   above   sea  level,   2,161    feet.  We are in  the  centre of that district  of   Western   America   which   is   Fwept  by  chinook  winds.     These  winds aro  tiie bright influence  of    ovr   'Banana  Ilrlt'   winters."        Continuing,      Mr.  Forst'er  remarks  that:   "There     is    a  district  around   Medicine   Hat   about  1200 miles in .diameter where the winters  are short and  the temperatures ���������  moderate.        The    district   comprises j  what is  the stock grazing country of  the  Northwest���������which   district  is  attracting attention     from      stockmen  from  every   stock  state  in  the  country to the south of us.    The town is  a growing,   progressive place,  a railroad centre,  has coal mines,  and is a  great       stock  shipping point.        The  town  enjoys the advantages of up to  chite  commercial   aud  business  facilities.    The town owns its waterworks  plant and supplies citizens with good  water at a moderate rate.    The town  owns      its natural g-as system      and  gives   citizens  gas for  fuel   and   light  at  Jess  than  20  cents   per   1,000  cubic feet.     The  Canadian Pacific Railway   has a yearly pay roll of  $250,-  000, and this yctar the stock business  hVought   into    the ranches.������800,000.  Wc  have'Tn*e .churches,   two  schools,  two hospitals,  three chartered banks,  all lines of mercantile b-usiness represented,   nnd     are,   in   fact,   a   uniqtue  community.     The e-iiizens  know how  to enjoy life as they find it hero, Jand  life on  the prairier and in the prairia  towns   has   an    enticing    fascination.  Thejie    is   an      unaccountable   charm  about the free,  open Western life."  There is probably 110 characteristic  of human nature-   more  general    'or  mores    highly    developed  than'   that  viluoh reaches    out    after  knowledge  .of (.Ileal People or Great Places.

The' man  who    climbs    to'  p:c-emincnt promL-  nen e by 'the    ladder of' politics, -   of  literature or  of war,  the place whi h  comes before  the public as 'the   sce:,e  of some    great achievement     is     tiu  man  or place   upon   whom or    upon  which    all eyes  are  cast.

Thus the address'"of the Uon.  J.  \v"  LongJey  recently    on   "Men and  Women J   Have    Met"   to  two   .luindroi  members, of the 'Canadian     Club     m  Toionto      interests     everyone-'   who  reads or thinjks, containing as it did,  interesting sketches,of the King, Joseph    Chamberlain,   , aiarie    Corolli,  Grover    Cleveland,'    William    Mokin-  icy,  Joseph lTowo  and  others about  whom  all have heaid.    .A   politician,  lawyer and   -litterateur    Mr. Long ley-  is  welr-l.nown, in   Ontario,   a ��������� co'upl'e  of his claims to 'undying, fame >b&ng"  the authorship of a work on "Love,"  and ; the    aulhoi ship . of what     any  waiting-   politician'    would  call  a sublime    but 'stern truism,   being     the  statement that  "Too Jong' in    oilice  is not.good for one party."  1 Ay ImuliouUiiLi (,������;utre.     '  The test of a politician as well as  the gracefulness of -a litterateur and'  the shrewdness of a , lawyer were  combined in Mr. Longley's opening  sentences, in which he-expiossed his  pleasure at havmg- an opportunity of  holding communion with so manv of  the? leading men of "this intellectual  centie (Toronto)," by which of  course he would have them know  that, they werenot ttie least important men he;, h'ati 'met. This sentiment he afterwards .made clearer by  assunng- theiri; that if he did not  mention their names individfally  among, h'is lb-���������t of distinguished 'men  it was because of-his reject'-, for  their modoUy and because of-no iack  pf appreciation of their merits. This  sentiment' was popular, and- Mr.  E-ongley* was already regarded , as a  man-of large aud quick discretion.  A   Ci.-i.,i.s ,i{ u S>tiH   Jim*'.  .Launching    into    his    theme,     Mr.  Longley took his hcaieis in    thought,  and  imagination  back  over  a    little  journey  of his in 1SU5,  when for the  first    timo    he    visited    tho    Ibitish  House of Commons,  which sta'ncls    in  sublime grandeur en the banks of the  .Thames.     Sket hmg    little   incident?,  illustrative of the  diiliculty  of securing  admission    to  the charmed     and  solemn  precincts  thereof,  he told    of  the 'session    then    in progress���������-dull,  monotonous,  ioutin-3.     It was in  the  precarious days of the Koseb-crv Government,   which 'struggled   along     on  a  majority of eighteen  or so���������a   majority which Mr. Longley seemed    to  scorn  as   paltry.     Howe\e.-,    at  this  particular  tune  they  went  into  com- ',  mittce of    supply    on the  war    ecti-  mates,    and    "Jllr.  St.  John  lirod-. ick  mo\eJ a reduction  of    iUOO  in     the  Minister's  salary,   the  point  being  of  couisj   want  of   confidence.     Sir   William  llarxouit  was out in   tne smoking room, remarking in his own English   way   that   "it  was awfi.Uy     dull  and monotonous to have a day wj-h- j  out a crisis,-'   when  the  di\ isic.n bell '  r.ang.   and   IV!r.

LEGIST  Copyright, 1902, by tho  S. S. McClurc Company  Mrs. Josiah Peabody, wife oF Dea7  con Peabody'of the village of 'Glen-  ville, had- a remarkable umbrella. It  had witnessed the struggle for American independence and had taken many  ,3'ourneys by land-and water. The ribs  had been bent or stove in on numerous  occasions and the handle broken and  glued together half a dozen times. It  had attended funerals, camp meetings,  . quilling bees, husking frolics and town  meetings without number and at the  age of 120 years was still doing business at the old stand and holding its  /own against all competition.  Mrs. .Levi Cantwell, wife of .Deacon  Cantwell of the same village and living right across the way from Mrs.  Peabody,  was' a  remarkable woman,  ' and what more natural than that a re-  markablef/ woman ; and a remarkable  umbrella  should   ..dventure 'together?  ,Mrs.'Cantwell was remarkable 'in  so !  cents."  "I do, and here it is," replied Deacon  Cantwell, "and I'm free to say I think  you are a mean man."  "I don't want any words with 3'otf."  ���������    "Nov I with you."   '  ,  "You'll take your boss out of my pasture!" 0    ,  "And you'll keep your hogs outer my  garden!"   ' <-  The .minister naturally heard of the  rise'and fall of the remarkable umbrella, and. although he refused to become  an adherent of either side, he felt it  his duly to touch upon the affair from  his oulnit. He didn't mention the umbrella by name, nor was he too hard  upon the hungry cow. He didn't hint  that Mrs". Cantwell was careless or  Mrs. Peabody impetuous, and the meeting between the deacons was passed  over entirely. He simply found a Biblical parallel and worked it up for the'  benefit of both sides, and the result almost wrecked the church. For the  next three months there was more  backbiting in the village than should  have been heard of in ten'counties,  and.there were no signs of a let up  when incident stepped in - to- restore  peace.  One day Deacon Peabody's' wife went  up into the garret%> overhaul on old  trunk. The place needed airing, and  she raised a window. Ahaiid organ  was playing downrlhe street, and she  noticed that the .bride was very pale,  and the bridesmaid noticed it about the  same .time 'and proceeded to take the  bride's cheeks between her thumbs and  fingers and give them a good, hard  pinching. Under this process they soon  showed a good color, whereupon the.  bridesmaid carefully performed the  same operation , on herself, and they  proceeded with glowing .cheeks to the  a liar.   !  much that she would never stir out of !'hoId UP tbe' sash witl1 on9 hand and  her house without an umbrella.

Cantwell   might   havo   driven'  away  with the  umbrella raised  over  her head, but as she needed both hands  to manage the lines the deacon care-  ' fully stowed-it away under the seat.' '  ���������-. .Arriving   at   Rawsonville,   the   old_  1, horse was hitched to a post in front of  a store, and Mrs. Cantwell entered to  do some "trading." She was an hour  or so about it, and during'this interval  a stray cow came down the street  hunting for something better than burdocks to eat. She found it when she  looked over the tailboard of the wagon  and espied the sacred umbrella. She  had never seen the like of it before,  and the taste was novel and palatable.  The more she ate the more she wanted, and she never stopped until the  last inch of cover had been swallowed  and a vigorous but unsuccessful effort  made to devour handle and ribs.  Mrs. Cantwell drove home without  having looked under the seat and  realized what a wreck accompanied  her. It was only as she reached her  own door and Mrs. Peabody came  across the road that the tragedy was  discovered. Excuses and apologies' and  offers to make repairs didn't go. With  the wreck hugged to her bosom Mrs.  Peabody retired to her own house, and  good will to men flew out of the back  door as she entered the front.  A quarrel over a broken flatiron may  be confined to two neighbors, but a  difference of opinion over a remarkable  umbrella is a different thing. -No one  ��������� charged Mrs. Cantwell with deliberate-  -' ly bringing about the wreck, but she  rwas blamed for not keeping one eye on  '���������hungry cows outside the store while  she had the,other on seven cent calico  inside. She knew the associations and  sentiments surrounding that relic, and  sooner than submit it to peril she  should have hired a boy to watch it.  The pros and cons were discussed at  every fireside in the village, and of  course a feeling of bitterness was engendered. In'less than a week neighbors who had always borrowed sugar  and tea of each other were refusing to  lend, and back gates were being nailed  Deacon Peabody was a good man.  So was Deacon Cantwell. Together they  had passed the contribution boxes in  church and counted up the receipts after the sermon. They .had worked out  their road tax side by side and bad  stood elbow to elbow in temperance  crusades and town improvements. That  long friendship was now broken. After  looking at the dilapidated umbrella for  the fiftieth time Deacon Peabody had  said to his neighbor:  "Deacon Cantwell, I never dunned a  man in my life,  but you owe me 50  thing she knew she was hanging head  downward on the outside of the house,  while the sash rested on her ankles  and held her fast.  Deacon Cantwell's wife was sewing  carpet rags, in her, sitting room when  a scries of shrieks lifted her out of ber  chair and propelled her to the front  door. For a few. seconds she was overcome by tho sight opposite.'' Then she  made a run for it, and two minutes later she was in-the Peabody garret. Colonial umbrellas, hungry cows and the  tongue of gossip were forgotten as she  tugged and pulled at the hanging burden. When it was'finally drawn back  over tho window sill, both women fainted away and .tangled up with each other, and SilasGoodheart, who had heard  the last, shrieks and 'come running,  stood over' them with uplifted hands  and said:  "Now let the heathen rage, for,umbrellas is noAvhar, and peace is restored  to Glenville forever-more!"'

Somebody fhaV.discovered' that the  decadence in modern manners does not  necessarily, denote our increased brutality, or absolute indifference to, the  feelings and needs of-other people. It  is balm to the soul to be assured of this  fact, says the Atlanta Journal.  We have admitted to ourselves for'  some time past that our manners have  not the repose which should mark the  caste of cVere de Vere and that we are  indeed frankly discourteous to, each  other." We also know that many men  are no longer particular how th'ey act  or what they say in the-presence of  women and do not even observe the  small courtesies of life where members  of the opposite sex are concerned.- Men  no longer hesitate to let a woman wait  on thorn ,or to push her aside In a  crowTd or to smoke in her faccunapolo-  getically, as if that were their natural  right. We certainly are less polished  and ceremonious than were our forefathers.  Facing this fact, it is pleasing to ,be  assured .that the change is not due to  selfishness, but is simply the expression of our desire to be honest, to avoid  shams. Therefore if we sometimes ���������  overstep the limit and cultivate unpleasant freedom of speech and action,  manifest unrestrained rudeness/we are  to be excused on the ground of our excessive frankness and honesty.  ,  The  Zoo Race. , ���������  The animals thought they would have, a  race;'   ''���������,'.

He was not pleased with the surname of Mulligan, to which he was  condemned, and so when he applied for  a new position in another .office he decided to give himself a new name, and  for this purpose borrowed what he  thought was a name from the financial  statements which he had to sort and  file iii the office in which he was last  employed.

A contributor to a Boston paper says  that he always thought until recently  that the blushing cheeks of a bride were  a certain indication of either her embarrassment or her abounding health.  ���������Pie was disabused of this opinion by  what he saw at a wedding the other  day. The wedding party was in the  vestibule, all ready to proceed to the altar, awaiting the wedding march.   H*  Customer���������I'd  like to see something  nice in checks.

A   Curious   Royal   Custom.  When any Spanish sovereign dies, the  body is at once submitted to the process of fossilization, nor can it be placed  in the royal pantheon until the, body  has been absolutely turned into stone.  Curiously enough, the period required  for fossilization varies considerably.  Some royal bodies have become solidified in a very short period, while others  have taken years before the fossiliza-  tion took place. It took exactly thirteen years to convert the body of the  father of Alfonso XIII. of Spain into  stone.  An  Effective  "Attach men t.J'  , Attaching a man's property for debt  1 Is supposed to be a legal process, but  an incident which occurred years ago in  the city of Natchez, as related by Davy  Crockett in his "Life and Adventures,"  shows that there are other ������������������attachments" which sometimes, accomplish  'a beneficent purpose.   '  An qdd affair-_pccurred wheu I was  last at Natchez, say's Mr. Crockett. A  Steamboat stopped~at the landing, and  one of the' crew ,went ashore to purchase provisions. He went into a saloon on the way, and the adroit inmates contrived, to rob him "of all his  money. The captain of the boat, a determined fellow, went astiore' in the'  hope of persuading them to refund, but  ,they declined. " '���������''  Without further ceremony, tho captain, assisted by his1 crew and passengers, some ,300 or 400 in number, made'  fast an immense cable to the frame  building Avhere the theft had been committed. Then he allowed fifteen'minutes for,the money to be forthcoming,  vowing that ,if it were not produced  within that time'he would put steam  to his boat and drag the house into ,lhe  river. .     ���������   .       ..'_.., ,  '  The thieves knew that he would keep  his word, and the money was promptly  produced.

The pig should he kept growing continually, says Professor J. W. Sanborn. It requires a certain amount of  food for maintenance. If there ,are no  growth and no, gain, this' maintenance  c food -is actual loss. About .twenty-five  to thirty years ago good - hogs were  marketed usually at eighteen to twenty-four months of age, and the general  nverage of weights was not more than  is made now at eight to ten months,  showing the great improvement in the  present methods and the great loss of  feed by the old plan of long maturing.  Self  Feeders   For  Sheep.  Self feeders for sheep, have proved  an expensive saving. They save the  labor of regular attendance, but increase the amount of food consumed  to produce a given gain. This, owing  to the varying appetites of the sheep  and the love of change in food not being regarded, causes a sluggish action  of the stomach and consequent decreased assimilation.   FeedingYGrnln  to   Sheep.  Sheep make the best use of grain  when it is fed in its original whole,  dry condition. Masticating their food  thoroughly, the finest weed seeds are  totally fined and destroyed. Finely  ground grain forms a sticky mass in  the mouth and seems distasteful to the  sheep.  A Pointer  For  Stock   Raiser*.  Never before did the markets make  such a wide difference in the pricey  being paid for good cattle and infcriif..  ones. Referring to this Tho Live Stock  World says, "Prices being realized for  good cattle and the low figures being  paid for Low grade cattle leave little  doubt in'"Lthe minds of experienced  feeders and stockmen about what  should be done."  Potted   Plants.  The reason some people "never have  any luck with plants" is sometime')  because the drainage is defective. A  plant will not live in a heavy, sour,  soggy, soil, such as fills a pot when  the drainage is not complete. This is  especially'true' of palms, to which the  stagnant moisture is sure death, but it  holds true of any pot grown plant.  Feminine  View*  ot  It.

At the same ' time' there has  been nothing', definite to encourage  the buying" side, and between the  two speculating traders 'have stoo'd  still, awaiting for something' to develop which would show with some  clearness what might be expected of  the    future The export trade for,,  Europe has 'lately been extremely  backward.
