So  far as  is known, the President has not taken a positive step  in  this direction.  The impression  here continues strong  that Japan .only  with due reluct am:-;  could  be  induced   to  forego the advantages   of   hir   slragctic  position,  which, in spite of lhe tone of thc oi-  licinl  advics   from  thc  front,   is regarded  as  being altogether  .avori'id.:  lo Field   Marshal   Oyatna.   and agree  to a suspension  of hostilities  for   at  least six   weeks, during   which   thousands  of reinforce ment s  -would   reach  General   Linevitch  and   Vladivostok,  which will he strengthened wit" -"i..!  t ions and  supplies to withstand      a  siege.       Indeed, it is suggested  that  Japan delilveralely    planned ro postpone the meeting long enough to give  Oyama a chance  to administer  to the  Russians a fresh  defeat on land   and  water, to rob the war party in Russia of  their Jast card,   and  facilitate"  acquiescencc to her terms.

A.   SMART.  Deputy Minister of  the Interior.  Department  of the Interior,   ���������,  IMPKIi.SSlUNS OF  FRKNCH  CANADA  Mr.  Paul  Louis Crochard,  has lately puid a      visit  to   French Canada,  lias published his inipressi<ms in  ui-.l  a lecture  del.verc-d  by  him      on    the  suhjict    at      Surbame    He  explains  lhe   dilTeronce   between   lhe     success  here  and   the failure clsewhcic which  lias  attended   French cole nidation  by  the events  of 17G3,  when he declares  (lie whole gioup  of functionaries and  poor  nobles   who  looked   upon       the  colony as      a  milch cow,   left it forever,   the only    Frenchmen  remaining  behind  being the     small  agricultural  population.   Those,      he says,    truly  enough, tl-;: priests have since welded  into a     nation     compact enough to  withstand even the enormous absorbing power  of the United States, and  he confesses,     with as much fairness  as grace, that    this result  is largely  due to the     example of good government  and  love  of     liberty  displayed  hv their     neighbors, the  "energiq'ues  cl scrieii\     Anglais."     For the rest,  ho finds many of the good old l-'iench  ideals preserved     in Quebec,  the only  town  on  the continent where,  according to hun, anyone has time to spare  and  slill more  in  the  interior of the  province.   Merc,  he says,  arc  no millionaires,      but    everyone is   well off,  and has no need to count the children  who arri-.c regularly every year. The  only  drop of bitter  in his cup is Vh������  loss by  the colonists of their artistic  'sensitiveness, as     shown by the fact  that there is  not   a handsome church  in French      Canada,  and in  the con-  slant   adoption   oi   English   locutions  into  their own charming   tongue.   ?n  Montreal    he  was  shocked  by seeing  Marclianii;se"s     Seches'  as  the legend  on a  'Mercuric',    and on hearing the  natives say  'moi pour un'  instead of  'quant a moi"    'palates machecs'  for  ���������puree dr pommes de terrc,' etc. Yet,  -to let him into the secret, these bar-  luiianisms     arc mainly the  work  of  American immigrants, who,  with the  national love of saving labor,   prefer  lo  translate literally   the almost sac-red  words dry  goods,  rather    than  I rouble to learn its Frei.ce equivalent.  *-!AYS TIM'S KINO  BUSINESS  rS  NOT   WHAT-IT MIGHT  BE.

The. table should be  simply di'coratcd, loses and white  flowefs with maiden-hair ferns malf-  ini!, an attractive display, writes Ma-  jone March in the June Housekeeper.

Another merry   feature  would  be     to  have hot  tea  pound  by  the      bride  during the dessert course, the teapot  hawng'rjio strainer.  A  little list      of  "meanings''   of   tea   leaves   in   a cup  can easily be     made up beforehand,  and lhe bride'can turn fortune teller  in a un"t*|e  way.
