A. C���������Tho Orange Society  had its' origin iu the hostiliiy  that subsisted, bet ween the religious sects iu Ireland fr6m the  Reformation downwards, though  the'term wus first used after the  Revolution ot 1688. The name  was taken from that of the Prince  of Oraugc, William III, who, iii  Ireland, has been popularly i<len  tified with tho establishment of  the Protestant ascendancy which  it'was the object of tho Orangf  Association to sustain. The first  "Orange Lodge" was founded iu  the village of Lnughgull, County  -Armagh, on Scplmnbor 21, 1795,  Threo years later the Orange  Society had reached tho dignity  of a grand lodge of Ireland, with  a formal establishment in the  metropolis, and in the following  years tho orgnuiznliou extended  to Iiugluntl; a grand lodge  was  founded in Manchester, but wa-.  trnnsfiMT-T'd fo T/vulmi in TH->t  The n'.thjvct move thnn once w.n  brought under the notice of Par  lianioiit, especially iu 181,-5/mid  in coiiacqucncc the grand lodge  of Iiuiunu waj������ dihhi'iveti, mil its  functions were discharged vicariously through thu Knglish lodye  The organization revived after  1827, when the Duke of Cuinberlaiid became grand miwicr,  ami, it it* suted thai iu 1836  there were 145,000 Orangemen  iu Knglaud and 125,000 in J re.  land. After I'arliaiiH'utnry cu  quiry in 1835, Orange clubs  were broken up in conformity  with rofiol 11 lions or the House of  Common.-*-, but the institution  afterwards gradually revived.  This theory proved to be correct,  and after twenty-four hoars' constant'vigil pn the purt of Constable Ilannay tind bib assistant' De  puty Constable Tuui 'Richardson,'  Julian was seen rowino-'m tho  direction "of his cabin.

Dynecourt  spoke little. An occasional jerky remark about bis work, a few words  about his latest researches ��������� these  constituted tho whole of his conversation until he had led Clare to a little secluded dell,* where amongst the  young, springing bracken, a pool of  water lay like ,a golden shield in the  sunshine. * Overhead the balmy air  whispered among tho baby leaves; on  the branch of, a hawthorn a thrush  poured out Ills evening song of love  and'summer like, the undergrowth  showed a shimmering-carpet of bluebells.

Has Formulated Unique Plan  for Aiding "and Assisting Desirable Class of 'Settlers  ��������� A startling change In the land pollc?  of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company about to be inaugurated,. marks  an entirely new era,of land colonization by any railway company or other  large land owning corporation on thla  continent. Of the, land grant* of  twenty-five-millions of acres given, tha  Canadian. Pacific Railway company a8  part of Its subsidy for the construction of its line, about two thirds have  already beon,been sold. In the earlier days of its history, the company,  like other land owning railway lines  south of tho* International boundary,  sold its land without .reference to colonization or improvement of land, being forced to this policy, by,the financial necessities existing in connection  with tho early construction of all the  transcontinental lines. Of late years  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company has been endeavoring to follow  more of a'land colonization policy,  and for tills purposo - extends tha  terms of payment for lts:3ands, introduced the entirely new and original  scheme qf "ready-made" farms, augmented that by the, establishment.of  some thirty demonstration farms br  tlieir own, and then, went a step'further by agreeing to provido live stock  to assist fanners in going in for more  diversified agriculture. This* policy  during tho past three years has resulted in the sale of a vast area, of  land in Western Canada,, and'.has  had more to do than any other one influence in stimulating the remarkable  movement*of settlement from south of  the,-- International boundary, " from  Great Britain and Northern Europe to  Western Canada.  ���������Realizing that in connection .with  the disposal of tho seven millions of  acres'-of land still held by the company it. was desirable, to go even a  step'further in the effort to people  these lands with successful agriculturists*, the company has now come forward with the very startling policy  which involves a sale of land only to  actual settlers, and as ah inducement  has extended the term for tho payment of land from   ten   to   twenty  years; has undertaken to mako loans  to the farmers to assist themin erec*.-  mg their buildings; has, provided for  the advance���������of livestock so as to enable these' land purchasers to start  their farming operations on an intensive or extensive farming basis, ^and  has finally laid down the principle that  by the sale of land only-to actually  bonafide settlers under the very, liberal terms mentioned, it will be possible to colonize- the unsold portions  of_thehu.l_and���������gTants-,w-ith_fro"m-thirty  to forty thousand hand-picked agriculturists from the United States, Grent  Britain and Northern Europe and by  this method to introduce into western  Canada a class of people,who inevitably must have a marked effect upon  agricultural development of the country, upon-.its political'development as  a portion of Canada and   upon   Canada's position in tho Empire.  , It Is popular in'tho United States  and In Canada to attack largo railway  land  owning  corporations , from   the'  basis of selfishness' on their part in  the administration of their holdings,  but the general policy which has beon  followed by tho Canadian Pacific Railway in tho administration of tho land  grant given Jt as p'art of a' subsidy  for the construction of its lino, especially during late year's, and the extraordinary liberal   policy.'- now   announced, certainly indicates that this  company has beon and Is realizing to  tho fullest extent its responsibility to  so utlllzo Its land as to bring about  not only the host financial result to  itsolf but'tho greatost good to Western  Canada,  Merchants9 Bank, of Canada^  'v       ,   '.Proceedings at���������the Forty-ninth Annual Meeting of Shareholders "       *  or Ulhffi������ at, the he_I offlc  Corns and wartu   disappear   when  treated with Holloway'a Cora Curo,  Without leaving a scar.
