In most Canadian citieB owners  of property arc compelled to keep  their frontages clear of snow, leaving the city rospomlble for tho  clearing of Iho strepts,  TRUE BLUE SOCIAL  The   True   Blues   and   Orange  brethren   last   Thursday evening  entertained Mr Thos. Duff, grand  organizer of the Dominion, at a  social iu the Oddfellows Hail.     A  crowded hall showed the zeal of  the organizations in anything pertaining to the good of the Orders  and as the proceeds of the entertainment were to go to the Orange  Orphans Home in Selby, Ontario,  it was gratifying to note that charity is   a   leading   feature in   the  Orange doctrine.   The evening began  with a short   programme of  songs, addresses, and   recitations,  Revds. Misener, Christmas, White,  aud Elmhurst being the principal  speakers outside of Lodge members.  After the disposal of the first part  of the evening,   an   adjournment  was made to the ante room, where  a dainty supper graced  the long  tables, and to which the guests did  most ample justice.    After which  all again repaired to the main hall,  and then it was that Mr Duff made  the speech   of  the  evening.     Of  fluent, easy speech, good command  of language,and of couise thoroughly conversant with his topic, the  gentleman talked   of the Orange  Order, making many points clear,  which are generally vaguely .understood by the lay mind. (, Hu pointed  out the objects of the Society, briefly sketched  the history of its, formation, and gave accounts of the  causes leading up thereto.   Reverting to certain remark" made earlier  -by-the���������Revt^-M r-Elm h urstr-a nent-  the non keeping of obligations of  members, he pointed out that there  were black sheep io every flock,  religios as well as social, and that  this was no reason that any stigma  should  attach to un organization  on this account, that the strongest  efforts.of Orangeism were directed  towards keeping ail.men in the line  of a right life.     Much ap* lause  greeted   the  speech,   better  than  wbich has nol been heard in Cumberland Orange circles.  After a few further remarks and  some social conversation, the meeting dispersed, and the Lodge went  into session in order to benefit by  the exemplification of the secret  work by Mr Uuff.  The Rev, Mr White mentioned,  is the travelling superintendent Of  Methodist Missions, how visiting  here. He told, among other things,  of visiting Comox with his father  ���������who held services there, ia the early  60's.  ., ,��������������������������� ".'..JiSfl  mm  CASH STORE.  & Prizes  [GIVEN    AWAY  Every 25o. purchase in my Storo  entitles you to one guess as to���������  How many Beans there are in the  bucket that is in my window.  1���������Hundsome Meat Platter aud Vegetable Dish, v.*.lue $3 59  2-���������Doa.

Lyttell,  whioh was   held   last  Thuisduy  evening in the Cumberland Hall,  was largely attended, and to judge  from the verve  with which  the  merry maskers entered  into the  spirit of tho affair, the height of a  dancer's and masker's enjoyment  was   reached.    The   drosses  were  varied, and ranged front thu beautiful to the extravagantly ^rotynque.

But then It's too late.  It thus befell with TIarkness, and  Leda wore tlio two starry bands so  deftly, posed amid the knotted tangles  of her sunny curls that they suggested  a dladetn aud l������ nowise led any man  to the conclusion which time honored  custom has drawn from tlie solitaire.  Ia faet, before the betrothal was a  week old Harkness himself began to  wonder.  And wben, at a dance at the Lakeside club, young Wryeroft, the very  famous half back.

The couple were  gone an hour and seven minutes by a  watch which had come down through  three generatlons'of the Harkness family, and when they did reappear the  owner of the watch stood at the head  of tlie wide stair and claimed, the  young lady for the next waltz. W17-  t-roft. happily oblivious to > his crime,  strolled off, and, Harkness led the girl  ���������around the wide promenade to a place  which was quiet and retired enough  for private conversation. He was boiling within, but nothing couid have  been more sweetly calm than tlie way  jgjnjilcb hc_putJiis jirmjibout her and  Ho  asked with careless placidity:  "Did you row far, dear?"

Harkness passed his finger over her  pretty hair in ^llence for a few minutes, and thence suddenly gave a  sharp exclamation:0  "Good God, Leda, you've lost one of  your combsl"  Leda put. both bands to her head ana  almost shrieked aa eho realized ths  truth.

Very much later in the evening while  Uarkacss was twofltepplng with Mrs.  Lancaster a sudden turn showed him  I-eda speaking earnestly to Wryeroft.  Wryeroft looked terribly used up. and  Harkueaa smiled grim I v, ,;  "Oli, whnt a mmllor.aaia Mrs. Lao������  raster. "It's both ��������� Impressive and  frightening.

He gave the bell two punches  for hot water and twisted the dressing  rase toward the window as a preliminary to shaving'. This mirror refieetod  tbe Point, and as Harkness started to  tip it he saw a girl 'disembarking, alono.  He unhung his field glasses.  Yes. it was Leda!  -Ho threw the glasses on the bed nnd  vent on with his toilet.

Iinrkness felt the corners of bla  mouth suddenly give way even while  his temper rose.

Leda's mouth tlew open in mulls-,  giilsed fright  "Who told you we were, to the  rolat?"        .,*'���������*  "I knew it all the time."  She began to cry.  "I never will again, truly."  "How could you behave so?" said the  iover, launching himself suddenly into  the full tide of his righteous wrath,  "i'ou pat me beyond all patience; going off like that with Wryeroft, when  you know perfectly well that you belong to some one else, and then actually  letting him"���������  Leda '(seized his arm.  ���������"Only once." sbe protested earnestly,  ���������only onco."  "Once la otace too often," said Harkness. a great and exceeding bitterness  welling up In his tone. "Once is a great,  ���������rreut-many times too often, considering the situation. Now, Leda, listen to  me." he continued sternly. "Either  promise me that you will never, never  again do anything in the slightest degree questionable or we'll call it all off.  and you cun give me back the comb  tlmt yoirstttrhave;" '  "Oh, I'll promise:" said Leda. with a  subtnissivo choke. "I'll never, never do  so again. Truly, truly. Upon my word  and honor."  Harkness looked to the right and  left arid behind. Then he leaned down  and kissed her.  Leda smiled happily, almost forgetting the side comb.  "She's a dear little girl," said her  lover, and, taking all the driving apparatus into his right band, ho thrust ths  left into his breast pocket and-''drew,  forth the missing comb.  Leda screamed.  "Oh. whero did you And it?"  "I didn't find It anywhere," he aald  coolly, as be adjusted the reins again.  "I look it out of your hair myself last  nljht."

Wi T  -yf  Q.HCPE JONES  He Deliver? a Lecture  oo Sticking to It.  f Copyright. 1903, by C. B. I-owls.]  ITIZENS of Jackson's Corners-  It cost me the,sum of $1.50 to  Uill this town tor tho entertainment now awaiting you,  but I bave a feeling deep down in my  breast that after tho usual collection  has been taken up I shall come out ut  least a quarter ahead and be able to  move on to the next town.  The subject of my lecture, as you  have been informed,, is "Perseverance;  or, Sticking tp It." Give me liberty or  dea tii. but also give me a man who  won't let go after he gets hold. Truth.  umbltion. virtue and honesty are good  Duildiug stones, but you must have the  mortar of perseverance to cement them  together.  Let us' take the case of Ca>s.*tr. He  began looking ahead when he was fen  years old. At flftc-en his father wanted to apprentice him to a cobbler, and  hia mother wanted lo establish him in  n Troy laundry. He had mude up his  mind to be a ruler of men and events,  but. for live years every sort of (lis-  courogetnent was thrown in!his way.  Ills father got him Into a baseball  ^team, hoping that would satisfy his  ambition; his uncle got him a country  school to teach, thinking b? would in  time become an Uncle Rube; his brother-in-law tri������l to get him to go part-  nova in tlie windmill business, aud the  family doctor said he was threatened  with consumption and should put in  most of his time fishing.  Somo young men would have given  up and started out as tiu peddlers or  joined a circus, but Caesar bad the root  hi his teeth, and he never let go.  It was sticking to it that shoved him  along until*, he reached the position  where he could send a thousand people  to jail by a, nod of his bead. They  bored in on him at last and finished  him off, but that simply came from  jealousy. He had lived lo elucidate  my contention that sticking to it beats  even a beef trust.  Some of you here at Jackson's Corners, which I find consist:** of fourteen  houses, a store and a blacksmith shop.  ~and"is~pictnres(iuely-situated-0T5-thrce-  -aides of a horse pond, must have hoard  of Christopher Columbus. At any rate.  I will take It that you bave and call  ���������jwjr, attention ��������� to the'fact that if bo  ' hadn't stuck to.It we might bave been  born In Africa instead of the United  States.  Uo first got it into his head that  tbere was an acre or two of laud out-  He hung to it and pushed it a Ion?;,  and foot by foot he climbed up. They j  tied grindstones to his coat tails. hut i  they couldn't hold him down. There  was no one to pat him on the hp.nd and  tflJk about '���������Excelsior," but he wouldn't  let go. When he did get a start, there  were those who did their best to stand  hlq on his Ihettd, and he bad to fight  against envy and malice. !  From a farmer's boy to the ruler of  the world's destinies! Think of that!  He had ambition and energy, but, better thnn aH, he had the stick to it  1 notice amoue the audience a r**d-  Headed boy who is half asleep. He Is  redheaded, freciUe faced and stub  nosed, and he has probably never been  to a circus or bad his tlil of lemonade.  but can 1 say that thirty years h.eiice  he will not be a greater man .than  Tom Piatt or Mark l-launa? If he's  got the stick (o It under all that red  hair, he's bound to get there, and only  death can keep him oaek. ���������  My   friends,  1  don't   want to  hurt i  your feellugs by making comparisons. *  1 bave no doubt that if you had been  born  when   George   Washington   was  you'd bave been as big a man as he  wns and  perhaps  biirge'r. ���������   It  wasn't'  your fault that you had to wait  MM)  years later, and I'm not the man to humiliate, you.   I simply qUote bim as another successful specimen of the stick  to it policy. After be had determined to'  become the Father of ills Country he  never let go.   He got the worst of it on  a hundred occasions, but he felt that  hanging on would bring success in the  end, and he hung..  And 1 now come down to Q. Hope  Joues. the man who stands before you.  I am a living illustration of .-what perseverance has doue and ������i*p"-ao.   When  you look" at me you see-'perseverance',  itself.    My  parents yere honest and .-  respectable, but my father didn't know'  enough to sharpen an ax or my mother  enough.to make catnip tea. ���������"   ,  As a-baby 1 was lop shouldered and  knockkneedl; as a child I was humpbacked and', had the earache. When-' I  was five ye'&rs old I didn't kno.w a  goose egg from a bapnidoor, but clown  in my own mind I had a plan. I had  determined to become great and famous and to place the name of Q. Hope  Jones beside, that of the greatest of  earth.  Once. I had made up my mind I .allowed nothing to discourage or dis-  suade me. 1 was fed on joknnycako  and buttermilk. "I went barefoot in"  winter and bareheaded in summer. 1  got up at 4 o'clock in the morning to  feed the bogs and sat up till 10 o'clock  at night to feed tho cows. The only  schooling I had was what I taught my-  , self from reading over the tax receipts  and mortgages on my father's farm.  As a young man I wasn't looked  upon aa nny thing too good to hoe corn  at 30 cents n day. and those who didn't  predict that I would go Into the drive  well business were sure tliat I would  eventually open a side show with a cannibal for the leading attraction. They  threw me down and piled It on lo me,  but they could not bold me down. I  got up to stick to It stronger than ever,  and you see the result before you,  Q. Hope Jones stands before you as  a man whose mime Is known from pole  to pole, and It Is known nowhere hut to  be honored, lie like me. You enn if  you will, and It Is not too much to hope  thnt my remarks here this evening will  Incite such alms nnd ambitions tlmt  twenty yours hencp North America  will be ruled from Jackson's Corners.  I will now close and pass it round the  lint, and It ls needless for me to sny  that if any one here has made up Ills  mind to drop In aa much ns n dime r  shall expect him to stick to It nnd not  put me off with throe coppers and half  a dozen buttons.

The breeze from- the  window had. blown her hair into a  fluffy, careless state, unlike its usual  businesslike primness, and there were.  ink blots on her second fing<*r.  "I'm going lo stay here awhile," he  said.   "And 1 don't give a rap for your  ���������'ladyship's permission.   I' have come to  have a talk with you."  She lookod at him amusedly.

Such schools  existed in luigiand when Upper Canada College was the site of an Indian camp.

The absorption of parents in commercial .'pursuits  tiatuiaily rniniiui-'se  -culture-ia-tiie-horue; Doys-are-lcitr  largely to their own devices,'' to  promiscuous''contact with lads not  of their own age, and to the perilous  Influences of th*.- street.

It s-hould he* tanght with  a minimum ������f grammar, as freely as  possible,  not  at all   as a means of  mental discipline.   The Principal   regards Homer as more nccos������ary to  a  school boy than Milton, if studied in  the original.     He observes  that, tbs  tendency ��������� hero  is    to-teach  English  more than .classics.

At llrst blush it seems a paradox  that an English master should give  two dead langi*Bnres' precedence   over  the language of Chaucer, Sliakcspearo  and Tennyson,  as a s6urco"of   Eng*- ;  ���������Hsh culture.   But it must be reniemr  bered  that  decent Endish  is seepnd,  nature    to:   an    Engiisii'   lioy.

In  this country we are yet subject,   to  rustic dialect, bad patois," American--;  isms and  foreign1 languages.    Thwe-"  fore, English as a dolinitc object    of  study is. tenfold more, necessary here  than   in  lihigland. .,.. Principal  Auden  'wisely .believes that great 'models v of j  jioetry and prose should not be sul>  jected to the indignity of grammatical  analysis;  neither- should English  woixls be laboriously parsed.   "'     ;    ;  Hibl������ Slioul.l   Ho     <i,u*-*lit..>   ,  As to religious instruction; the  Principal believes tliat "the Bible  should be taught in the schools, lie  also contends that the best gospel of  all is the personal, every-day ��������� religion of a teacher's life and character. <��������� Kegarding women as teachers,  he believes that Ihey are a shining  success with young pupils, bui' fundamentally '���������. lacking, the gift necessary  to enforce discipline among boys  abovo the elementary forms.

Tenders are now  invited for the supply of bandoliers,  pouches and othor equipment���������12:*,-  550 bandoliers to carry GO rounds  of ammunition, 25.00U carrying uO  rounds, 2-17,3 Go pouches to carry 10  rounds, and 2<17,100 pouches to carry 15 rounds. All to bo made of  leather, the bodies of the bandoliers  of split cowhide, the pouches -if  bridle leather.  V The new bandolier is a collection of  small pouches fastened upon a'wide  ritrap. Tho ninety-round variety has  a curious double buckle to rest on  tlio soldier's shoulder and to carry  the steadying stfai'- The pouches are  sman,v und carry ten rounds of tin*-.  munition. Thoy arc li-irrower at tho  i bottom thdii^ ihe top. Thoir fastening JfO&.fetycry largo,���������v,  Eacli contains a leethor tongue  fastened at the bottom, nnd tapering very Tiup'at its other end, to be  folded round a clip of cartridges, so  that the pulling,of its loose end will  bring it out instantly. The extra  pouches are of tho some type as;  those lor the bandoliers, except those  to carry iiftcen rounds, *iVhich. are to  'have no leathern tongue. V*   ;;  This typo'of bandolier resembles  that which was employed, by the  Boors. Tlie'old type of bandolier,  used by English noldiers in tlie war  was mado of webbing,' and carried  cartridges horizontally packed in  separate divisions. It was found; to-  be useless, as it worked looso and  lost ammunition. Then a long flap  was added,'.which, fastened, kept the  cartridges in their places, but was  useless, too, for the buttons did not  hold the flap. Then came bandoliers  .of. the old'type* with flaps for every  ten, six, live, or four cartridges.  Those with flaps for five were useful.  Three weeks a,go split cowhide began to go up in price, rising one  penny per pound.  STATESMAN'S PATHETIC DEATH,  rnfttug of  H������n. Duncan ("ilUoa, Spsaltnr  of Vlcluriau I'nrllamsnr.

Since our last week's review there  has been some advance ic the wheat  markets brought about prmcijially by  renewal of rumors of war between  llussia, and .Inpun- The negotiatioiis  between these powers wero understood to have arrived at a more critical stage on Saturday last, and the  reports were xc'Mod on by the Ameri-  ican speculatho markets.and through  the covering by shorts aud the continued buying by bulls a spurt of ic  t^c took place. Monday brought a  calmer view of the situation ag-aiu,  and during this week to date there  has been little change in prices, und  indeed if it were not for tho nervous  situation caused by the uncertainty  of eastern developments prices would  easily sell off somewhat. While there  is not much change in the northwest  spring wheat situation," it being  about as bulljsh as previously, it is  beginning to be more generally recognized that the world's wheat situation may become much less bullish,  owing to the immense crop harvesting in Australia and Argentina und  the generally good prospects ������oi the  winter crop for next year. The movement, of wheat in tho United States  is now larger than at samo time last  year, showi'*������ that .farmers are sell--  in-g freely. Tlie world's shipments,  which were expected to fall off about  now are about as large as previously, u-ncl are running one-third larger  than last year, givinp: Europe ample  supplies. The tveather in Argentina  continues somewhat unsettled, but  harvest progresses and there is 110  word of serious damage.  Manitoba wheat is dull but steady.

Now that hostilities have commenced between Russia and Japan,  we are all curious to obtain an insight into, or an idea of Russian  life. Russian novels are most eagerly read now, and not altogether  for entertainment, but out of curiosity.   They seem to open out to us  .V"  a world hitherto unknown ; they  introduce us to strange life and  manners. To some readers they are  depressing, but to others they give  pleasure, although a hopeless fatalism pervades them. Russian life is  depicted to the letter, studies of  real life, descriptions of dress, home  farms, &cV The glimpse we get of  the nobility is most debased, the  people 'seem to most of us to be the  most disagreeable on earth, and  Jife in Russia, in any social grade,  would have fewer ..attractions than  anywhere elee. The machinery of  the government is cumbrous in the  extreme, imperfect, save as regards  the central motive of autocracy  which directs the wholfe kinship and  ties of blood, which are peculiarly  Hitr^g"in~R"UsSi'a7"yierd"preference to~  the rights accorded to useful work  in all questions of distribution of  property. Their regard for the  greatest of christian virtues is aptly  illustrated by a legend, quoted by  Stepniak. St. Gassian and St.  Nicholas appeared before the Lord,  the one clean and in decent apparel,  the other dirty, with torn,, mud-  besmeared clothes. "What hast  thou seen on earth?" asked our  Lord, of St. Ca8sian. "I have seen  a peasant with his cart upset,  floundering in a ditch by the roadside," replied St. Cassian. "Why  didst thou not help him out?"  -* Because I was coming into Thy  presence, and feared to soil my  dress." Of St. Nicholas the Lord  asked, "Why comest thou thus  filthy and begrimed into my presence?" "Because," replied he,  " I was following St. Cassian, and  seeing the peasant of whom he  spake, I helped him out of the  ditch." "It is well," said the  Lord. ���������'Because thou, Ca.-siun,  hast cared ho much about thy dress  and so little for thy brother, I will  give thee a name's day but once in  four yours; but thou, Nicholas, because thou acted as thou didst, thou  shalt have a name's-day four times  in every year." And thus it happens that St. Oaseian's Day falls on  the 29th of Fobruary, ovory leap  year, while St. Nicholas' Day oomoB  every quart or.  DEATH.

Victoria, Feb. 28���������Steamer Queen  from San Francisco put into Port  Townsend at ten o'clock this morning She caught fire at sea and  fourteen lives were lost. The  steamer's stern wae all burned  awny, but rest of Bhip intact.  The Queen had reached a point  fifty miles south of Columbia River  when fire was discovered about four  o'clock Saturday, cause is not  known. It originated ih the dining hall aft, and only the coolness  of the officers prevented a panic.  The passengers had come forth in  their night clothes. The vessel appeared to be doomed, and Captain  Cousins launched four of the life  boats. One of these capsized drowning four of the crew. The other got  away but one foundered in a heavy  ���������"Sta,drowning.five.' As soon as fire  was out boats returned to.'steamer.���������  She reached Port Townsend Sun.  day morning. The aft part of vessel is gutted, damage being $40,-  000. Marine men are amazed that  the fire was put out. The woodwork for fifty feet from stern is  burned while the iron work is  twisted entirely out of phape. The  Queen had 175 passengers and 78  of crew.  The steamer was headed into  the wind while the fire was foimht.  Second f-ngineer and first officer  took charge of two lines of lioi-e  while engineers kept pumps going.  So intense was heat that for part of  the time it was necessary to be  swathed in wet cloths The' vessel  obeyed the helm throughput al-  i hough tiller roper were at white  heat at times. So intense was heat  that great steelbeamt were bent in  all shapes. The steamer proceeded  under her own steam, reaching  Port Townsend at ten Sunday  morning.  Russians' plan of campaign contemplates the relief of the Russian  troops without opposing the Japanese landing and when sufficient  reinforcement** arrive the offensive  will be taken and Port Arthur will  be relieved.  Seoul 28th���������-Ping Yang will probably be tbe Bcene of the first engagement shortly.  A large body of Russians with  57 guns has reached Arign Plmils  north of Ping Yanj**.
