Mr. W," \V\  B'tor has written au interesting  ai tide for the Times; the most in  teresting pait is the tabulated  statement which shows that Vancouver pays from ten " to twenty  per cent more fur its food supplies than Seattle. Mr, Uaor should  carry the matter further and show  what Victoria pays, for a comparison ���������of the prices of a few standard articles has convinced The  Week that thore is as much differ  'encp between Victoria and Vancouver as between Vancouver and  Seattle. Roughly speaking, the  Capital City to-day pays twenty-  live per cent more "for its food  supplies and from twenty five lo  forty per ceiit more for its dry  goods than Seattle. In addition,  its "extras''"aie enormously-high,  and in housekeeping it is astonish  ing how* the little, things count.  Such items as car' fares, transfer  ���������charges, hack hire and casual labour cost at least- twice as. much  here as in Seattle.

That is  what tho Calgary press did with  excellent effect, and that is what  is being done in many parts of  Canada. W.hile there are worldwide causes for an increase.in the  cost'of living, there is uo legitim  ate* reason why the Canndinn increase should outstrip all others.  It is a* mat tor of common, knowl  edge that this is mainly duo to  tho arbitrary control of prices by  combines.

Presently with tears sho told her  mother wbat bad happened, and lliey  wepi together in their joy.  In tlie morning Thorold himself appeared and .loan was greatly relieved  to bear that the missing poet had  turned up .-.gain In bis chambers.  But he miiBl have been jolly late,  declared Thorold, for I was a bit  restless myself nnd went round about  two in tbe morning and there wasn't  a sign of lilm. But when I went just:  now, he was getting breakfast as cool  as you please.  But where liad lie been? asked  Joan. ,  Why, eaid Thorold, looking puzzled,  that is wbat I can't make out���������first of  all he wanted to say he bad not  been out at all. Ue said be had been  working iit a poem and he showed  mc tha draft of it���������rather n jolly  thing*, Tborold -ad nil tied with some reluctance. So then I asked to"lobk,at  his boots and tbey were thick with  mud, but he hadn't the least idea,  where be bad been, and If you believe  me, he didn't* even know what day it  was. lie .just seems to, have., lost  himself for" about twenty-four hours  composing this poem, and now he is  like a man recovering from a heavy  debauch.

It's oven botllng whether ho  will get a scolding or tears when he  ���������joes.there���������probably both together.  In wliich guess Thorold proved a.  true prophet, and tbo erring poet was  soon forgiven ns soon as Dora was  convinced that what they bad ��������� seen  had not been a vision of himself sent  to. announce his death as she had been  In private much inclined to believe.

HEREDITY  IN  HANDWRITING  Science Wakes up to a Fact That tho  Public Huve Long Realized  Non scientific persons havo long  realized tlie remarkable similarity lu  handwriting; of members ot tho samo  family, sometimes lasting for half a  dozen generations, and now, it seems,  science is at last waking up to this  .suggestive fact in heredity,. Sir Rick-  man Goodlee, president o������ the Royal  College of Surgeons, said recently;  1 have lately been reading old letters datingnhacl\ to tho early part of  the eighteen century, and I have been  | struck wllh the way in  which mere  j handwriting is    handed    down    from  j father to son, and mother to daughter.  i   ' It Is Impossible to traco quite clenr-  I ly my great-grandfather's writing in  : that of my cousin's and father's and  my own.     If mere handwriting Is thus  Iraimmluod, together with tho tone of]  the voice and lhe shape' of the nose,1  the question arises whether any ono  need be ns.uuned of ills defects, sorry  for his misdeeds, proud of his success,  or satisfied with the consciousness of  virtue.      We may feel the long arms  of our  npe-lll.o  ancestors stretching  out of the past and molding our char-  aeiei's.''     We may read al'. that lias  ever been written about free will from  the   lime  of  Aristotle,  and  we  may  hug the notion .tliai our actions have  heen  predestined  from  Ih?  nebulous  stato of our planet.       ._,._  But it makes, no difference fo us.  We aro prill doggedly convinced that  by taking thought we can add one  cubit ,fo our stature, or at any rate  prevent it being one <*;iblt less.

Woolen Cloths  The first woolen cloths manufactured  in  England  were  prodi.ced  by  a  colony of  seventy families of Dutch  cloth-workers, who landed in England  July 26, in the year 1331, having been  induced to settle in England by a liberal grant from Edwa:*d HI.    Worsted manufacture was   commenced   in  Norfolk a few years later, and the industry so launched soon reached large  proportions.     Every effort was-made  to protect lhe infant, industry, and in  14G3   it~<wa's  enacted  that   no  cloth  but of Wales or Ireland should be imported into England.    , In the seven*  -teent-h���������century-,-- during���������the-roign���������of-  Charles II, a law was passed'that all  persons should  be burled  In woolen  cloths.      In 1700 an act. was,passed  by parliament, prohibiting .the importation into England of Indian muslins,'  chintzes;  and  cottons,    which    were  threatening to supplant- woolen cloths  In popularity!

Curious   Irish  Railroad.
Ireland is now offering to the world
i contribution in Ihe form of a monorail road of an odd design which may.
lie the germ of great improvement.
About a mile and a half north1 *of
Bully bunion stands Helmore, and'between those* two small towns extends
lhat quaint little road���the Bally-
bunion monorail.
t)n its single I nick, raised on a
trestle, and in its curious cars, passftii-
cters and freight are carried from Ual-
.iyhiinion to Bel more and back again
in the reninrkablo time of five inin-
tile*". The monorail on which its
slnuigo locomotive and trains run is
about.Ihreo feet high, while the distance-between the'lower rails, which
nerve io maintain the equilibrium of
lho rolling stock, is about two feet.
Most, remarkable of its equipment is
lhe locomotive, will) its-queer iill'pli-
?n| boiler and llrohnx. It lias one
ryliiiilor nn each side, the rods ol
which are inside conne'eled lo the
drivers, The interior of a passenger
!iir is divided into two longitudinal
roiii pa it me nts, which are entered by
-cpai'iile doors Freight and stock ear-*
uie similarly divided.
Curious Sacred Symbol That Has En
dtired for 8,000 Years. '
The scarab, like the swastika, is a.,
example of "���the curious, persistenci
with which certain forms of symbolism have held the popular Imagination
and. endured from the.; earliest timei
do*tyn to the present day. It is no\i
used as a decoration for clasps and
buckles arid also as. part of a headdress or fastening for cloak or. gown,
������Jith the peculiar, oval beetle worked j ���
.either in beads, enamel or metal.
Tho use of thi,j scarab as an embleiE
of the..ancient'Egyptian religion cau
he (raced as' far back as 6,000 B.O.
It was, in fact, commonly employed
in connection with religious observ.
ances, archaeologists being of th*;
opinion that when ^trung together it**
numbers, us found on ancient monuments and in papyri, they represented
���tho  rosaries  used   by  worshipers' in
Tlie practically  invariable presence
fof lhe scarab among, the wrappings ol
mummies and in the decoration oi
mummy   cases   points to  its   having
'been regarded by the ancient Egyptians as an emblem 01 resurrection.
This symbolic interpretation is, in
fact, connected with the old beliel
that beetles arose from tho dead, a
belief which doubtless owes its origin
to the habit of these'insects of rolling'
their eggs in balls of sand; so that
when the young are hatched they have
the appearance ��� of issuing unaided
fro*n the earth. Scarabs found -in
tombs usually hear some inscription
from the Egyptian "Book of the
Dead," referring to tho exchange of an*
old heart for a new.. Hence arose, no
doubt, the custom of placing scarabs
over the heart of a dead "person, the
preservation of whose body they were
supposed lo secure. In* many "cases
the   heart   was   removed   altogether
.when the. body was embalmed, and
was then replaced by 'a scarab.
The earliest scarabs were formed ol
soft'stone; later examples were made
of pottery or engraved on pieces -of
hard granite.  In color they-either Te-
, sembled that of the green Egyptian
cockchafter or were of that fine, .deep
blue so characteristic of Egyptian pot-
tery beads. The back is always in the
���form' of the sacred beetle and the flat
base is1'engraved, in various ways, ac
cording lo the period to which the
scarab belongs.' Some,bear the name**
of Egyptian' Kings, while others are
engraved with the portraits (rather
impressionistio in,,style!)* of Queens
and various royal personages. Amen-
hoten III. was accustomed to issue his
royal edicts on the face of enormous
scarabs, especially constructed for the
uurnose,, and smaller ones were .used
by him as gifts or to convey to friends
theassurance of his good feeling.'* ;-.
. The' meaning of those"pecujiar spiral
decorations ���which0 so1 often appear, on
scarabs-as well as on ancient.eastern"
monuments,     such as'i Cleopatra's
The Planet Mnr*.
| "A* to the hubitahlllty of Mars, tin
| planet popularly regarded ns. offering
the nearest approach to n duplication
of earthly conditions, E. Walter MaiiiV
der, P. R. A.--S., in "Are the Planet**
Inhabited?" is uncompromisingly negative. A. consideration of the Martian
temperature and atmosphere leads ulu>
to this conclusion:
... "What wo know of Mars shows us a
planet Icebound every night, but witli
a day temperature somewhat abovs
freezing point. As we see it, we look
opon its warmest regions, ��� and the
rapidity with which it is cleared of Ice,
enow and cloud shows tho atmosphere

seas aro probably shallow depression**

.Perilous Chewing.
One of tho troubles uf most European

rlble explosive cordite ns if it were s

But thej-eal danger of the habit lie**,
in the fact that though nitroglycerin

During tlie fhivid ' century ? B.C.
scarabs we're frequently -fashioned
from  gold  and  precious  stones, and
"the fact .that'they were wrought in
certain fixed sizes seems to."point to

and iu the, train the usual boastful
garden talk was In progress. "Havo
you got n quincunx in your garden?''
asked tho quiet man in the corner.
There was n dead pause. "A quercus,

politely. "No, a quincunx." , "Ah,
they're no good here," said the next
man, confidently; "won't bloom lu this*
soil, you'll find."
"I'm surprised you haven't got one."
said the quiet.num. "It was the ilrst
thing I planted after I laid out my

"How do you' spell the name?" asked
a novice (only three months .married),
respectfully, determined to look up the
catalogues at once. But it was tho
common, not garden, dictionary that
enlightened him. There (says the Manchester Guardian) he learned lhat a
