The Victoria Times says editorially that the government was defeated
on Monday. The Times' views are
not those' of people who know the
true conditions under,which the vote
was taken. It was not a defeat.
At most it could be taken only as a
warning to tho government to keep
its forces better organized if Ihey
wish -to carry on to the end of their
term what they can' imdouibt'cdly do
if they "play the game." So far as
Newcastle is      concerned   nobody is
losing   uny particular sleep over > the   peri
matter whether the government's _a-

is    the   proper   view   for  one   in   the
position   of  a  leader     of   a  government   to  take;   but   there are   indications    that   this   expressed     conflden
ce   is  not   reciprocal.      Tho         trust
I is  not  mutual.     In  fact,     we      be-

the  opinion   that   there is on    undei
current    of distrust flowing   through

administration  that   it.might   be as
well  for     the    premier     to  make  a

They Were Not Mere Rlng-a, aa T_��
of the Modern Clrcna.
The arenas of ancient Rome were
not, as some people suppose, mere
--ings or ovals, such as may be seen
in tbe modern circus. They were
broken up and varied in character according to the nature of the fighting
to be done or to tbe caprices of those
in uutho-itj*. On one occasion an arena
might resemble the Numidian desert,
on another the garden of Hesperides,
thick set with groves of trees and rising mounds, while again it pictured the
great rocks and caves of Thrace. - ' ..
With these surroundings the com- j
batants advanced, retreated, encircled
their adversaries or kept wild beasts ���
at bay as occasion offered or as their \
courage or fear suggested. Men com- j

Perhaps the most ingenious and thc  most original of all schemes for ptt*  curing autographs was from a lady in  n western town. She -was raisin*; funds  lor the building ancl "support of a public  Cibrary, nnd she had conceived tbe idea  of Issuing n volume to be called "The  Authors' Recipe Book." Authors from  all over the country, the most dlsth**  gulshed of authors���������always authors  with a capital A���������bad been good enough  to send her a list of the favorite disbes  of their own construction, with their  method of making them.  The cookbook was one of the many  forms of literature to whiclr the recipient hud never turned his attention. He  had no in ore idea of cooking than be  had of milking a cow or of harnessing  a horse or. of setting a hen or of building a dynamo. He did not even care  what was cooked for him so Ion_ as it  contained none of the ingredient* of  tripe and none of the esseuce of tomato. But he was asked to contribute t  paper, which she would have reproduced In facsimile, stating what be  could prepare most to his liking upon  a kitchen range or in a chafing dish,  with his manner of procedure. This  quite nonplused him until he bethought  himself of one particular and peculiar  delicacy in the evolution of which he  could safely trust his reputation as an  expert. In reply, for which hereceived  no thanks, he said:  "Take a long paper cutter; attach to  the same by means of rubber bands,  and securely, an Ink eraser; insert the  ink eraser firmly into a marshmallow  plug and hold the same over a student's  lamp or study fire until the marshmallow begins to sizz, drops into the ashes,  puts out the light or burns your hand.  And eat while hot!"  Hc has never seen a copy of "The Authors' Recipo Book!"���������Laurence HuttoD  In Critic. -   -  Canned Fruit For Deaaert.  Canned fruit may be used for *es-  eerts in many ways. The Juice in the  *an should be heavily sweetened and  boiled down to a sirup. This makes the  fruit richer. Common canned peaches  heated in a thick sirup and served with  cream are very good indeed. Canned  raspberries make a delicious BavarUu  cream or charlotte russe.
