At present there are those who  woulu imbue the youthful mind  vith the Imperial spirit by having the Union Jack raised on the  ���������school grounds before the  opening oi the school each  morning  und then lowering it again  after  .���������chool is called.    If raised ,A all  why not display the flag during  lhe lull number of school hours,  so as to further impress the youth  iitl mind.     But why  raise  the  flag at all each day. It would be  a duty added to the now very  i.mn<L*rous ones of the  principal  of a large school, or the one teach  er of a small country school, aud  would it really be an   advantage  alter all?   It is claimed that it  would make the boys and girls  respect the flag a great deal more  a.ud   make more patriotic men  and women than at the present  time.    What is the matter with  Llie present patriotism?  J There is a tendency nowadays  ion to another class of pT< spect-  ive citizen suld asserts  there is  a  well-laid plan to bring to Canada  the thousands of French   people j  who (in 111 wish lo remain in the ;  nioil.tr countV; , France, a'ter the  disav* wai cf the Roman Ca toll lie ,  church b> the Slate.      He contends il at ibis t lis eat ens the best  interests id" the 1 oniiuiou inasmuch as dies'.relish of that denomination had recently inereai-ed  to a remarkable extent  t rough-  out Canada.  Sun ly it ought to be enough  to ask that Caiia<'a-l-e whitenmn's  country and curtail all other objections unless it be that to keep  out critiunals. Allow a man to  choose his religion.  10 regard the flag as a fetich~tb~  be worship rather  than an era-  1 lem to be kept 'worthy of reject.    Tlie raising of the flag  w ith our cousins across the border has reared a nation- of flag-  worshippers, and often narrows  down to the narrowness that ev-  * 11 on national holidays no flag  .should fly except the Stars and  ������Stripes in the United States.  In  t ttnada we do not want flag-wor-  .saippers;  patriotic citizens will  be all that is required; and if pat-  rotisin is to   be  taught iu our  .-���������Jioools   more   thoroughly the  1.using aud lowering of the flag  inch morning will not secure the  it si red end and teach  the duty  . 1 ihe young citizen to the state,  Better teach the children some  t -ing of   "the patriotic dead"���������  o: ihe King Harold, or the Nelson, or the Grace Darling, or the  I,aura Secord style of hero.   Every child loves to be told of hero-  1 ������������������ deeds, and our history���������both  Ca .fivlian aud English���������is   not  ���������  .iitiug for heroes und heroines,  1 le.c should be thc stnrting point  1 ' her than thc hoisting of thc  U.iiou Jack on the top-most pin-  '   l.aole of the staff, and it will be  1 ucli more successful iu tlie tench  ii g of patriotism', to rc.'-p'.ct the  1 ij'iits of others and thu du lies -to  1 ur fcllowmau in the turmoil oil  ������ vcryday life.

Tost]  Y   DEAR   LITTLE   GIRI.-1.  have just received your delightful letter telling me all  about the  preparations  for  your wedding.   It carries me back to  the time, some forty years ago, when  your dear mother was making similar  arrangements and i was doing a little  stunt ln the same  line, myself.    Iu.  those days the fashions In joyous apparel for men were not so rigidly fixe J  us now.   All your William will have  lo do Is to ralso the price.   In my day  it was different.   To be sure, the cut  of a man's coat and trousers and bnt  for  such   occnslons   didn't   admit of  .much variation, but he had more latitude in the matter of color and goods,  '.nd.nB-to walsteousts, shirts nnd ties.,  he could go as, far as he pleased without fracturing any. rules bad enough  to shock society.   1 vividly remembec  what a deuce ot  a time I had toying to decide between  a   bright  yellow waistcoat    covereit  with   little  bluet  flowers   and   a.  white one with  black dots on It.  I finally had to,  ask  your  mother's advice about  it,  and she   favored the white  one.    Of course  What a swell your   her preference-  daddi/was. settled the busk  ness, but my memory still lingers fondly on that yellow vest. I wore a ruffled,  shirt that it took my old colored mammy a whole day to iron and a bine  necktie that made the little stars twin-  ���������Ulerirwi^sO"brlitiantr"AhTmy'littiegii*i;--  you can't imagine what a swell your  daddy was when he was a youngster*  Did I ever tell you about tbe time E  had getting my bridal suit? I dou't  believe.I ever did, and this is a most,  appropriate time to reveal to you one  of the dark chapters of my life.  Thero was only  ono tailor in  our  town, and he .wasn't much of a tailor-  Besides, he had a habit of looklug on.  the wine, or Its Missouri cquLvjilfiutj.,  when It was most Inconvenient for hi*  customers,   His name wn* Johnson, but;  It wasn't Andy,    He resembled Anfiy  In his nffectlon for certain brauds of  corn Juice, but tlmt wns as fnr as tho  likeness went. .Well. I hnd given Johnson pretty freo rango and oodles of  time lh tho matter of my outfit, aud l:  mnde It n point to call on hlra every  dny nnd give lilm n mild lecture on tho  evils   of   Intemperance,    particularly  whon wedding clothes wore Involved.  I held him up pretty well, nnd he'win*  getting nlong line with tho job unlll'  the day boforo the grent one, whon nn  old pal of his from Kentucky blow Into  town.   Then Johnson fell, nnd so <1' I  my hope*.    I  was going home tlmt  night, with my feet In the tall grns.-t  und my bond up tu the solnr, sj-hIuiu.  somewhere, ns happy as a honoybco In  Juno, when 1 mot the tailor nnd tlio  Kontucklan coming up the rand.
