London, March 3.���������The House  Commons tonight in Commit Ice of  Supply considering flic additional army estimates wiih'a reduced attendance, gave Lhe govcruniciit a majority of'only 27 on a minor a ciidmciil.  The result, of his division was received with- an outburst of cheering  by  the opposition.  Mr. Lloyd George, (Advanced Lib-  ������*_a*) ;.|!'!l���������!.,!J.ately moved to report,  progress. He accused the government  of filibustering to gain time and whip  up- the majority, thereby sacrificing  the time of the House He said it  was evident there was a split* in the  ministerial,, ranks and the Commons  were tired ofMr. Balfour and the  ministry.  ^"���������mier  Balfour,  in .replying,   said  e Commons were  tired of him it  -   .s an  easy matter  fo secure  a riddance.     A ."division" was  then     taken  the-result being lfi?  fo 101   iii favor  of the government.   This majority of  24,  .was    greeted   with  cries   of. "resign."     In  subsequent  divisions    the  government'-majority hovered  around  26   to 2S, ,   and   Lhc matter*   was the  subject  of  excited   comment,  in     the  lobby  as the House was rising.   Winston Churchill asked if  there was any  truth.in the rumor of Mr. Wyndham's  resignation of the chief secretaryship  for Ireland.   Secretary Acland Hood,  replied  that  the  question  ought   not  to  be put   to the  premier. Tt  was  untrue, he said, that cither Secretary  .Wyndham or the Viceroy Dudley  had tendered., their resignations.  London, March 3.���������The Government  embarrassments are thickening daily.  Mr.. Chamberlain evidently takes Mr.  Balfour's attempt to.change the issue from thc fiscal question to home  rule, as "lying down," and the result is seen partly in the reduction  of the government's majority yesterday and still more in some behind  the. scenes correspondence published  this morning as follows: "At the beginning of the session,. Lord Stanley  Free Trader and Mr. Fellows, M. P.  both members of Lhe government promised to go to King's Inn to speak  for Thomas Gibonson Bowles and  free trade, last evening. Their promise was confirmed- by Sir Alexander  Acland Hood and was repeated as  late as February 27th, but suddenly  the engagements were cancelled. Lord-  Stanley wrote to Mr. Bowles apologizing for an apparent breach of  faith, _ stating that owing to thc  pressure of his colleagues he and Mr.  Fellows would be unable to fill their-  engagement. A long correspondence  between the parties concerned which  Mr. Bowles has given the newspapers today, followed, in which Lord  Stanley and Acland Hood pretended  that Mr. Bowles was left in the lurch  on account of his well known tendency to criticize the government. It  generally     understood   that  Mr.  A RUSE.  Miss Violet Oakley, the young artist whose woik in illustrating "received the highest awards in St.  Louis, lives on the outskrits of PliiU  adelphia, in a quaint, low white  house ot English aspect, called the  "Red   Rose."  Miss   Oakley   was   serving   tea     in  her studio  the other afternoon when  the  vvoid  "ruse" came. up. ICveryone  had some episode about an odd   and  Miccesslul ruse  to narrate. Miss Oakley said:  "I,  too, recall  anise that succeed-  r ed   wondei fully,      an   unexpected   and  'original  ruse  thai  a fiiend of     mine  employed.

"My friend could not. think of taking her uncle to task about his table  I milliners; if she had, it would have  broken the poor old gentleman's  heart. Instead of taking him to  task, she employed a ruse upon him.  Her ruse, which was quite successful,  culminated like this:  "���������'Alary,' says the uncle at'dinner,  'this here knife of mine tastes  soapy.'  " 'Very well, uncle you shall have  another.'  "The second knife comes. The uncle with a grimace,  remark's:  " 'Soapy, too, Mary. Just like the  first one was.'  "My friend frowned.  " 'it's too had, uncle," she said.

At his left a dapper  middle-aged man, whose hair shov/cd  " a shameless tendency to retreat by  tlie back way, was. eating his soup in  a severely   business-like-manner.  Neither thc young lady nor the mid  die-aged man showed the slightest  ripple of i-iie-e.i in thc stranger at  the table, : ml v.-'th the chagrin of a  warm nature -whose open friendliness  has been silently declined, his glance  came   back to Miss Mitford.  Thc demure smile in 'her eyes seemed to   have deepened, and whether it  meant    sympathy or amusement was  an open question. -  At any rate Stu-  are   liar ton reset', ed his dscis-on and  decided that she was not so old a.fLcr  all, and that she .undoubtedly , uuut-i-  stood.  lie had heard of people so congenial  ��������� t'hat they were     old lrieuas ..eio_.i. ,.  tiiey   had time to *   become new * acquaintances.-   .

Indeed  they're a good deal younger, and so  is your mind, \o_-r age is just light  it is 1 who-am  beastly young.  Don t  ever mention it again, for" I feel lilis  a mere kid .when you talk-like this."  _ iia-'ing .disposed of the suggestion  in this summary manner, he liegan to  talk  of other and pleasanter  things,  and  before long Miss Mitford's clear  Jaugh  was ringing out lii-.e a girl's.  Mis.-,    Selwyn    'was passing through  the hail, heard it and wondered in a  v agi,ely.. nettled nvay.- what Mr. Uar-  ton    saw in that ' old maid.   There  were times  when she half regretted  her hauteur to the' young stranger.  His eyes actually were fine. .Besides,  it.touched her*   pride   that a     man  oliouid  deliberately turn  to another  j  woman  when she was at hand..  'Ihe !  fact that the ".woman was her senior .  and__.noJ-efli.ii.y.en!}'*made the offence  more heinous.  By degrees,  therefore, her manner  tov_.ard hini changed, thawing slowly  "I know what you are going     to  say," he began,  "but it's no use.__i  love you, and I'm old enough to know  my own mind.   This is an exception  al case, and there's no  use of youi  loLineiitiiig yourself and  mc by hot;.  ering about outrages.   I am certainl.  going to marry you, so you might as  well make up your-mind to it."  lie paused for breath,  and.  though  she eyed him in disdainful silence,   a  dangerous  excitement,   a triumphant  happiness  danced  iu her  blood,   and  she dared not trust herself to speak.  "You love mc���������you know you do,  Alice," he resumed exultantly,     an I  at     thc protest that she tried her  best     to make   convincing he only  laughed indulgently.    With a shock it  came to her, that he was right.   She  did love him.   When she spo e a moment  later her voice was very  low  and  tense.'

It was a soft'April ,.ay. Thc tender green and misty greys of, the  park .vera like a wistful promise of  beauties to, come. * In the air damp,  earthy--smells of early spring floated  the; sweet, breath of:the soil as it  awakened 'from ils -winter trance.  "With-a sigh of enjoyment'she seated herself on one of the green benches, and Barton took his place beside  her. l-'or some moments they sat gaz-  ing at the scene before them in dieam  mg silence, tailing long whill's of the  soft, air* with sensuous delight. Thc  blurred, faint loviiness of it all bespoke fair,, land.,  He     did  not-speak,  but she ljjew  that  he  was   watching her  intently.  With  a sort   of  helpless,   bewildered  dismay     she  realized that she  was  Hushing* like a schoolgirl.  "A woman  of  thirty-eight,"  she taunted herself  an  interest which had not always been  accorded Mieni, and' which did not  fail of its effect. ���������'- After the jaded,  cynical opinions of-; older men,' she  ��������� ryallj found them as exhilarating' as  wine. -���������" Always they parted with a  grudging sense-of bi caking off at-the  most interesting point,-with a parenthetical "To Le,continued," _like;a  serial' story.    _.,���������.. -      .    .     .    -    ������������������ *���������  JMorc than once she^ had surprised  amused glances on -the fac-cs^ oi other  boarders, and she was far too acute  not to interpret their meaning accurately. But she remained; tranquil, *  too happy and engrossed to" care  what the common, conventional herd  might think.  "I suppose you know that they aro  .saying all sorts of (lungs about us?"  she said to him one evening when -  iVIi.ss Selwyn*s bclia.ioi; al dinner  had amounted to nothing less than a  reprimand.    .  Tl/en, she went on mercilessly:  "They probably say that 1 am leading you on, and that I am oW enough   to  know  better,   that' I am    a  ways. But youth has ever a  memory, and a year contains  days.  "I'm going away immediately," she  continued, with a little' break in her  voice, as she realized what life would  seem without him. "For a year I  shall drop out of exis'tence, so far as  you are concerned. But at the end of  that time"���������  A year had passed and another had  begun befoie Stuart Barton found  himself again in that particular part  of the park. An before, lie was accompanied by -Uady, young, proud  and superb looking, and as they seated themselves,on the identical green  bench that he had occupied on a former momentous occasion he awaited  anxiously for the reply she had promised him. Later, the first flurry r.f  excitement over, ehe looked at him  with an inquiring face.  "You  were awfully  attentive     to  that  2Miss  Mitford  last  year,"     she  remarked    tentatively.     "'I alwajs  wondered what you could sec  in     a  woman so much yoiir senior."  Consternation seized JJarton.    Now  he knew why the spot had vagi.eQ(J  Haunted hini; why it reminded him of  .something .once vivid,  b. t now forgotten.   His face- went pale.  "She  was a lovely  woman,"     he  said quietly.  THE WEEKLY FREE PRESS.  Tlie   Weekly Free Press,  Winnipeg,,  is the oldest established and the lead  ing weekly of Western Canada.

Mr.  A. E.  jMainwaring, manager of
the II.  &W., met with a serious accident  yesterday afternoon,    lie  was
attending  to   the  feeding   of  a grinding-machine,   and  as the same      be
came slightly     clogged  he  put    his
hand down to clear it.   In doing so
his  nngj-rs  were caught in the guilder,   with thc result that  three were
torn off and the leader of the   large
middle  finger  pulled   completely  out
from     the elbow.      In spite of the
most  terrible agony Mr.  Mainwaring
had the presence of mind to summon
a doctor,   who  promptly  dressed   the
injuries.    It     is feared the accident
may cripple the entire arm.
