By some he was  legarded as a miack, awl Ins success  at the Russian court caused him to  be bracketed with Cagi.ostro for impudence, audacity  and intrigue.

Serge Basset, -dramatist and writer on theatrical matters for the Figaro Dr. Encausse  distinctly states that he saw Philippe cure a child alll'cUd with tubercular meningitis. Thc healer looked  at the child and then asked an the  persons present to give their word of  honor that they wouitl not say any  thing evil of the absent for two days.  This extraordinary request was complied with and the child recovered as  ir by enchantment.

"  WIDOWS AT FIVE  (Continued Irom Page Three )  anccs,   and   ot wearisome  attendance  at religious functions.   Though     the  English law  would recognize the legality of .rc-marriage, inexorable custom forbids it, and its occurrence is  rare. There     were,    in 1901, nearly  126,000  widows under 15 years     of  age,     of whom   nearly   20,000  were  less than  live years old.  Whence can  we expect the remedy for this terrible state of affairs,  this mass of human misery?   Sirdar  Arjun  Sing  advocated a mild measure of more    or  less permissive  legislation,' and quoted the example set by thc 'great Hindoo States " of Mysore and Baroda--  To other Indian speakers  it  appeared, as itm.sl appear to Englishmen  who know India,   that such a course  was  un practicable  for  a government  in thc position of ours.  Absolute neutrality  in respect  of religious     customs'has always been, and must -ai_  ways  he. the  policy  ot the   IVritish  government in India, save only wh:n  such customs  as  in tho  case of "salt"  are opposed to essential* princi-  ials of Western  criminal law.  That  was the principle  which  guided    .the  government   in  refusing  to accept ������er  ci in  proposals for legislation on this  subject in 1W,   and also  warr mted  the passage  of the1 Age of Consent  ���������Vet in 1801. That  Act" was valuable  in'preventing actual marriage,  in the  European    sense,' irom taking place  before a girl   reaches  the  age  of  12.  There is nothing to prevent early betrothals,  Reform - in    that respect  must,  as--the government  said,     be  left to "the gradual operation of the  mental  and   moral  development     of  the people by the spread ot education."     To.   that  remedy  alone  the  Indian speakers  at the  recent Mieet-  ing looked  with hope.  It was pointed  out  Hint   female education   must  play   the  most  important part,   and  that the education of men was pow-  cilis.s wil hint  it to complete there-  form.   In  domestic affairs female influence is  as powerful  in the East as  in    thc West,      and .until    education  turns H in  the direction of marriage  reform' it must remain an almost irresistible   obstacle to   thc bettei-in-  fotiiiod ���������.iews  of  the  male members  of   thc family,  "lhe   impulse   must be  iii veil    by       the people  themselves.  Some progress has been made in the  education of men; very little '.n't at  of  woment  Hope of gradually  eiadi-  cating a custom    so deleterious     as  that of early marriage must rest on  ther. appreciation by men of the benefits'.of the education they, receive and  of ths desirability of extending it <p  women. .-'   '   .''.. ���������;"  Sample Goods  WE HAVE RECEIVED A CONSIGNMENT   OF'  SAMPLES   IN  DRYGOODS WHICH WE OFFER PO OUR   CUSTOMERS       AT  25  PER CENT.
