Church edifices are public institutions and; as such are not taxable property, but a parsonage,; vicarage, or by what  ever other name. it may be called, is the  private home of the man who occupies it,  whether.it is given him rent-free or not.  It is no more reasonable to refund the taxes  paid upon these properties than it is to refund tne taxes paid oy.any other business  institution or home owner. Parsons are  paid by the community in which they labor,  and they should be., Civil government  costs money, and a tax is levied to raise  the money;   It is the citizen's first duty  to give good things.  A BOOKLET on. the Northern Okanagan,  just issued by Mr. H. W. Harvey, embracing the districts of Enderby, Grindrod,  Mara and Mabel Lake, is very attractive  Jn its ^general getupr and a great credit to  "the "man whoJCJTTO^  enterprise as this'that wins, presenting to  the prospective buyer the advantages of a  district teeming with possibilities and rich  in resources, and presenting them in such a  manner as to. interest and entertain. We  hope to see much activity in the movement  of: outside property as the result of Mr.  Harvey's venture.     "' "~~" '"���������������������������     s*  THE promise is big for this year's winter  poultry show by the Northern Okanagan Poultry Association.

Waddell is going to send prize winners to the big Guelph show.' Secretary  'Brandish has been untiring in his efforts to  get in touch with the best things for the  Association, and has several important  matters to bring before the next meeting,  which, by the way, will be held in Enderby  next Saturday afternoon. It will be to the  interest of all poultrymen to place themselves in touch with what is under way.  IF the right .of way is given to the city,  the city will build a road giving access  to the Lawes hill property. If the right of  way is not given, in this case or any other,  the property owners affected do not want  a road sufficiently for the city to build it.

MAN'S DECEIT
AT THE'PHONE.
TELEPHONE GIRL SHOCKED BY
EXCUSES SHE HEARS.
She is on Duty When the Husbands
Explain to Their Wives Why They
Can't  Come   Home  for   Dinnar.
(X. Y.  .un.)
Tlio  tele-photic girl on    evening duty
at a subterranean public station pretty
close to that pulsating corner. JJroadway and Forty-be. .nd street, think-
that she has classified the men folks all
right, .he says herself that she's "got
the men's number," which means thc
same thing as classifying 'em.
lk'iug in charge of a central and Ten-
��������� . erlonish phone station and on the evening, watch this telephone girl catches,
you see, most of the ���������'���������'excuse" phoning
trade; the business, that is to say, of the
more or less involuntarily downtown detained men who use thc phone to explain
to their wives why they can't be home
to dinner.
"O-o-oh, such liars!" said the telephone girl during a lull, picking her
gum from the top of one oi the unused
switch pegs. "Such awful, frightful, terrible, hideous, dazzling, unholy liars as
men are \"
The indictment was so overwhelming
that she was asked to elucidate.
'"'Oh, the outrageous lies they phone
to their wives to excuse their not being
home as thoy ought to be!" said the
telephone girl/ looking, however, not
quite so horrified as might have been
expected, "and their deliberate, calloused, cold-blooded, foxv wav of lving���������
o-o-oh!"
Detailed counts of this indictment
were called i'or.
"Well," said the telephone girl, "you
ought to hear 'cm' that's all. Two of
'em that came in here about 7 o'clock
this evening were samples���������samples of
ihe limit.
"They were men around 30 and both
were what you call happy soused. They
strolled in liere arm iu arm, sort of
leaning on each other. They weren't so
���������happy soused that they had* lost any ot
Iheir foxiness, though��������� men' never ' become so far gone _a _o lose their foxi-
ucss, in my opinion
explained the fat man. 'but I guess
that's a shrimpy number, anyhow.
How'd it do to just tell 'em we're
soused, and that we'll be home next
Tuesday week if the day isn't cloudy,
and let it go at  that'r'
'��������� "Now f know you're crazy,'* said the
lean man. 'Let's go have a little gill and
think it over." and out they trudged arm
in arm again, aud they didn't come back,
and so 1 suppose thoy ended by not
sending any kind of word to their
wives.
"The way those two did fan over
what they called the old stuff, the excuses they'd used so often before! Do
you wonder that telephone girls have
got to be shown before they'll consc.it to
lislcji to the tinkle of their own wedding
belli?
���������''J'he men that come here to send
phone excuses to their wives don't mind
the phono girl at all. Thoy lake it for
granted that she is used to all that-stuff
���������which of course she really is���������and so
they aren't n particle shy about discussing just what lies they're going to try to
fix up for their wives.-
"Why, some of them even ask me to
suggest a new excuse.
''A case like that only a couple of
evenings ago. He .was a careless looking middle aged man, and he was
twisting lm moustache and looking real
reflective as he sauntered toward me
hero. He gave me the number he wanted,
and then he leaned over, not leeringly
or flirtily at all, understand, but just
in a businesslike way, and he said:
" 'Cot anything new in the square it
at home line'.
"I knew perfectly what he meant, of
course, bn L wasn' going to admit it;
but my refusing to admit it didn't cark
hint  any.
:,iA thing that there's a great need
for/' hc said to me in a reflective tone,
is a sort of ".Everyday J3ook of Lies."
A little brochure like that would save
fired people like myself, for example, a
lot of trouble.
"'For instance, if there were such a
book on file here at the present.moment
I'd be spared not a little irking~thoug.it.

l.e'rr Colsmann said also that as the
War Office declined to onie/any Zep-

to appeal to municialitics and private
capital in order to guarantee llu- continued activity of its extensive installation. Count Zeppelin had already been
iu communica-tion with various town
councils and had received- promi.-es of
support from some of ihe most import-
ant cities.
The town council of Cologne.'for instance, is willing to invest $125,000 in Un'

line of air.hips which will establish aerial c.nniiuiiiii..ilion between Cologne _mi<1

The eggs are not always a century old,
but you are' able to got them of many

"The Celestials have a preference for
the egg of the duck or goose. They are
placed with aiomatic herbs in slaked
lime for a period more or'less long, the
the minimum time of treatment being
five or six weeks. Under the influence
of time the yolk liquefies and takes

The term "Necessities of ocean travel"  has departed from the category of thc  cross-sea wandcier.

ELEVATORS AND TELEPHONES. .  The equipments and appointments of^  thc state looms were improved, bedsteads were installed in'place of old-  fashioned berths, and, as a natural sequence, magnificent public rooms, such  as ^the lounge, social halls, ladies' parlors, smoking rooms, etc.. were soon regarded as .indfepcusable to "every ship.  Thc same-idea was responsible for the  elevator, electric light, baths, telephones,  gymnasiums, wireless and sub-mraine  lie 11 systems, etc. -  The' truck' faim and green house on  the Kaiscrin Auguste Victoria is but  the natural' outcome of a well-ordered  scheme. Formerly fruits, vegetables and  flowers, in. order'to be available for the  table, were kept in cold storage rooms  in thc hold of the ship. Now a steamship gardener is one of the'regular staff.

Stein, the archaeological explorer,  thioughout his great journey of 10,000  miles, undertaken oirbehalf of the Indian Government, through Central Asia  into China and back.  Though the aggregate "of thc marches  amounted roughly to 10,000 miles in two  years and eight months, the actual distance coveicd by Dosh, taking into account his'canine habits of progression,  may be estimated at .well"over 20,000.  units. Dash made that-journey on foot  practically the whole way, except when  he went "pony back" for short distances  at times.of great heat. ''When in the  'J_.klamak.an desert Dash," like the'rest  of thc party; had his water allowance  strictly limited. It came irom the supply carried on camels in thc form of ice.  Dash went over mountain 'passes' as  high as 1S.00O feet above sea level.  Throughout the journey the dog kept  well and his menu was made up of  scraps from the comp larder. Jiach night  he slept in Dr. Stein's tent, and on occasions proved himself .a very use till  watchdog. On the high Tibetan uplands  his chief recreation was chasing' 'wild  donkeys, yaks and the like. He managed to kilf several hares and bring them  in to supplement the store of food.  Upon many journeys along the Indian  Northwest frontier, .Dash has. also" been  the comrade of his master, .and he has  probably -Seen ��������������������������� far more of the world  1 ban most ^people.

This is sometimes  sufficient for sash curtains, but   under  other circumstances     it may    . provide  mending material.  Irish point curtains are the most difficult to mend 'because of their fincjicss  and flimsincss of texture. One satisfactory method consists of stretching,' without" straining   much,   the   torn   portion���������������������������>  over an embroidery hoop. With a small-  scissors trim down* the "tear" until you" "  have a \lerfcct square or rectangle without any loose ends. Now cut a piece from  your Irish point remnant that will ex- ,  actly correspond  and perfectly fit into  this square or rectangle. If the rest is  in  thc  border or figured  part find    a  place  in  the remnant that will match.  With  No.   100  thread  and  exceedingly  fine stitches connect thc edges of   tho  rent with the ends of the inserted part,  so  that  there  isn't  the  slightest  overlapping or ruffing.  Irish point curtains have, under a  skilled hand, been so successfully treated this way that no trace of mending  was visible except on close inspection.  Bobbinetlc curtains, though of much  coarser quality, are best repaired ,in  the same way.  Thc hand made parts of Battenberg  curtains of intricate design, usually begin to ravel in places when they have  been laundered the third or fourth time.  Thc netting invariably outlasts thc open  work borders. The best way is to baste  thc tattered parts on the original pattern, and after carefully snipping off  the loose ends proceed with your needle  as in thc beginning. Another good way  to repair Battenberg curtains is to cut  out all Che drawn work, leaving only  ���������������������������the braid design. Lay this on plain netting, like the curtain proper, baste down  'evenly, sew along both edges by machine, and trim off tlio end of the netting.  Brussels .net curtains are considered  the most durable; when they begin to  tear they tear all over. It seldom pays  to mend them after they have known  four or five, years' service, but frequently the borders and tattered parts can be  cut off and the remaining portion neatly and quickly hemmed by machine will  suffice-.for a small garret or basement  window; /  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  August 19, 1909  ENDERBY PRESS  Published every  Thursday at   Enderby, B.C. at  S2 per year, by the Walker Pr...  AUGUST 19, 1909  City Hall Site  THE wisdom of the public  meeting which on Monday night expressed itself so  strongly in favor of the city  proceeding at once with the  erection of the city hall, will  not be questioned by anyone.  It is the sense of all that the  building should be pushed to  - completion this fall if possible, and all good things are  possible to a people who get  busy.   The matter of site is  still in dispute, though so far  as the public meeting is concerned, the Worthington site  is a two to one choice.   The  matter will have to be submitted to a vote of the ratepayers, and this will be done  immediately.   It is up to the  City to erect the  city hall  where a majority of the rate  payers want it,  and it is up  to   every rate-payer" to let  every other rate-payer have  a chance to  say   where he  wants it.   We understand it  is the intention of the City  Council to submit the matter  of site to the rate-payers by  the referendum next. week.  In view of the strong petition    acted  upon and  endorsed by the public meeting, it is doubtful if the result of the referendum will  materially change  the majority in favor of the Worthington site unless, many of  the signers vote differently  from what they talk.    It is  the duty of every rate-payer  to express a choice  in the  matter, when the opportunity  is'given, and to submit amicably-to the rule of the majority. It is not strange that  the property owners on Cliff  street should favor the site  on the corner of Cliff and  George   streets���������������������������not   more  strange than that the property owners in the vicinity of  the  Worthington   property  should favor that site.   But  this is not the real point to  be considered.   What all are  =Jnter-est.e-d������������������in,__in___=_.a____larger_  way, is in choosing the site  which will contribute most  to the city's advancement,  and give us the most present and futur _ value for the  money.   In either case the  city must purchase a site.  To say that we already own  a site  is only a half-truth.  The purchase of the 80-foot  corner of Cliff  and George  was made with water works  debenture money,  as an investment, and if the city is  to build upon this lot it must  pay back   into the sinking  fund the amount of the purchase price with interest ad-  ded���������������������������in all, about $900.    In  this lot we have 80x130 feet.  Two blocks north on George  street, with an east frontage  and 60-foot streets   on the  north and south sides of the  property,   we   have    eight  large lots,  all set  out into  trees, flowers and lawn, and  with  a   residence   thereon  valued at_ $900.     The price  at which it is offered to the  city is $2,800.    It is. up to  the  rate  payers to decide  which  of  these  properties  they want.    Selfish interest  W  should not be allowed to  overshadow public, interest.  For men to sacrifice the best  interests of the city to their  selfish interest, is not only  a future drawback to themselves but to the city. If  Enderby is to reach big  things, we must attempt big  things. Large ambitions are  the result of attempting big  things���������������������������all growth comes  from attempting big things.  To be content with little  spuds is always to live in a  potato patch.  Why Knock?  HJLE we do not like to  confess it, we^ cannot  longer blind our eyes to the  fact of there being at Vernon a number of men who  have insistently endeavored  to knock this end of the Valley to intending buyers. It  is nonsense to declare they  have not. In spite of this,  the Northern Okanagan is  steadily advancing, and each  week sees new settlers occupying land heretofore uncultivated. Recently Mr. Chas.  W. Little, who has done so  much in demonstrating the  great resources of' the Mara  clistrict, experienced the hard  hitting of the hammersmen  to the south of us. He had  a deal all but closed with a  wealthy syndicate involving  tiie transfer of 5000 acres of  land between Enderby and  Mara. The whole thing was  knocked in the head by a  man who has had no experience in the district and does  not know any more about  Mara's fruit-raising possibilities than he does about  the ice-pack of the north  pole.   To undo the damage  done by this "expert", Mr.  Little engaged-Mr. E. M.  Carruthers, manager of the  Kelowna Land and Orchard  Co. Ltd., to examine and  test the quality of the Mara  district soil and to report on  its merits as a fruit-growing  district. Prom what Mr.  Carruthers saw, and the  tests made, he was positive  in the statement that Mara  lands were in every quality  equal to the best at Kelowna,  and he believed the oppc_-  tunities for apple culture  were as great if not greater  here as there. This fact has  long been recognized by  practical men who know the  Northern Okanagan, and it  is folly for men who do not  know it to use the hammer  of ignorance.

Mr. Mc-  Quarrie has succeeded in getting  a foothold in every town in the  valley, and is supplying Glen  Gerrack milk and cream to the  homes of all desiring the best.  Speaking of the Glen Gerrack  dairy, the Armstrong Advertiser  says:  "That the Glen Gerrack Dairy  will be a model one goes without  saying. Thousands of dollars  are being expended in purchasing the best milch cows to be  added to the already large number on the farm, while other  thousands of dollars are being  invested in installing the most  modern, scientific and hygienic  devices known to the dairying  industry. Impurities of all lands  will be closely guarded against.  The pure mountain streams from  which the cows will derive their  drinking supply will be kept; un-  contaminated by every means  possible while the sterilizing process to which the milk will be  subjected will remove the last  possible chance of bacteria. The  milk will be delivered in air-tight  bottles that have also been subjected to germ killing processes.  Agencies will be estalished in all  the towns of the valley so that  fresh milk and cream can be delivered to every family requiring  same. That the sterilized luxury from the air-tight bottle will  replace the morning and evening  milk from the bucket is a foregone conclusion.  Snowdrop, the family cow that  we have raised from a calf and  have long since recognized as  one of the family, must be sacrificed to the butcher, or else  handed over to the regular dairyman, for ; even in a Snowdrop a  deadly germ may be waiting for  our coming, and we don't want  to come till he has been sterilized  and the dairyman can sterilize  him better than we can ourselves.  The passing of Snowdrop may  cost us a momentary pang, but  in this pure food age pangs of  that Kind are secondary in consideration to the danger from the  deadly germ.  That the Glen Gerrack Dairy  will meet with a large and profitable patronage throughout the  valley may be readily conceded.;  That Mr. McQuarrie's indefatigable efforts in its management  may be rewarded in a realization  of his object is our fervent  wish."

THE   USEFUL  SWALLOWS.  The Old Fashioned Door Plate.  - "Door plates are going out of fashion, said a man whose business it  is to make plates of all kinds.  "Twenty years ago every man of prominence had his name graven upon a  plate nnd that plat, affixed to his  front door, that all might know who  dwelt within. The daily task of the  negro houseman was to rub the door  plate until it. shone. It took the  place of the Lares and Penates of  the Romans, and was attended to  just as card-:ly as were the ancient  household gods.  "Everything is change J now;  though. I suppose the reason is ihat  people don't have homes as they  used to. They simply live in houses  and apartments and move around so  much that a door plate couldn't possibly endure the peripatetic existence.  A collection of brass door plates  screwed to the portal of a big apartment building would, I confess, look  rather odd.���������������������������From the Louisville Courier-Journal.

They aie  the most fatal" time of the year for babies and young children, because of the  great prevalence of stomach and bowel  troubles. These come almost without  warning and often before the mother  realizes that there is danger thc little  one may be beyond aid. Mo other medicine can equal Baby's Own Tablets in  promptly curing bowel and stomach  troubles' and an occasional dose given,  the well child will keep the stomach  and bowels free from offending matter  and ensure good health to the child.

Hitherto occupation of newly built  houses has been delayed in order to allow them to dry, but with the use of  this new. apparatus freshly plastered  *> rooms can be entirely dried within three  ��������������������������� days and the excessive moisture of the  wp.lls completely extracted. . .  The apparatus consists of a stove with  a firebox suitable for coke fuel, surrounded by a number of small diameter  tubes similar to gas pipes. By means of  the apparatus fresh, dry, outside air enters constantly into the air supply tubes  and is highly heated in the tubes surrounding the fire places. It ascends in  a dry, heated state in the room, passes  along the ceiling and walls, and absorbs the dampness, sinking down after being saturated with the same and  re-entering   the   the   apparatus.  It then mixes with the coke gases in  the.outlet tube for the smoke, and eventually escapes into the chimney. This  constantly renewed, fresh, outside air  furnishes an abundance of carbonic acid  to the mortar, thus handening it and  producing in a short time the same effect as if the mortar had dried naturally. It is claimed by this system that no  moisture can possibly show later on. A  strik i ng-^recomin en d a ti on__f or .the____app_a r____  atus is' that thc German law prohibiting  the habitation of any house until six  months after construction is abrogated  by thc authorities where this system is  used.

There are several old bells in Scotland,  Ireland and Wales; the oldest arc often  riveted togetht. says the London Globe.  At the monastery of St. Gall in Switzerland the four-sided bell of the Irish missionary St. Gall, who lived in the seventh  century, is still preserved; but more  ancient still is the bell of St. Patrick in  Belfast, which is ornamented with goM  and gems and silver filigree work.  The curfew bell is that    about which  "most has been written aud said.   It has  been  thought that it was only used iu  England, but it was quite common  on  the continent in tlie middle ages.  The ringing of bells by rope is still  very poular in England, especially in the  country, where almost every hamlet,  however small; has its church with its  peal of bells, which are often remarkably  well rung. The first peal of bells in England was sent by Tope Calixtus III. to  King's College, Cambridge, and was for  three hundred ye,ars the largest peal in  England. About the beginning of the  year 1500 sets of eight bells were hung  in a few of the large churches.  In the middle of the seventeenth century a man named White wrote a foin-  -ous^wor-k^on^bells.-Jii^vili.iclwh.e^introv  duccd the system of numbering thcml,  2. 3, 4, etc., on slips of paper in different orders, according to thc changes  intended to be rung. It is calculated  that to ring all the changes upon 24 bells  at two strokes a second would take 117  million years.  One of thc most famous bells in the  world is the first great bell of Moscow,  which now stands in the middle of a  square, in that city..and . is. used, as a  chapel. This 1_11 was east in 1733, but  was in thc earth for more, than a hundred years, being raised in 1SM0 by the  Emperor Nicholas. It is nearly twenty  feet high, ha.s a circumfcrem . of sixty  feet, is two feet thick and weighs almost  (wo hundred tons. Tho second Moscow  bell, which is the largest, bell in the  world that is n .furvlly in use. weighs 128  tons.

One" autnnin evening, not long after
ihe title of First-Baron"Tweedmouth had
���������come to the head of the family, a young
sportsman lost his way in tlie wild dis-
ti iet- around Guisachiin. the Marjori-
liiinks ho_ic, and ca ti . to beg shelter for
the night. There was a true Highland
welcome \ior him,'and then it transpired
that he wa_ the Earl of Aberdeen, .seventh holder of the ancient title and b;it
lately come into it and its great estate..
Tl was all a very fair imitation of old
romance brought down to a prosaic present, and the sequel '"came true" quite a -
the novel' reader would have had it. for
a few years later, the youngest of that
eventful night's hostesses' went forth
from Guisachan, to preside as Lady Aberdeen at Iladdo House.
THE FAMILY SAME AND TITLE.
John Campbell Gordon became, head
of the houseof Aberdeen when a youth
just turned of his majority, assuming
tlieii a title which belongs, it"i _ said, to
the longest-lived family in the Bri.iah
peerage; created in ItiSJ, it is only.now-
in possession of the seventh of its Dealers. The present Earl^is grandson of
that Lord Aberdeen who was Prime Minister from 1833 to 1835, resigning-just-
after ihe Crimean War- a, elo.se fiiend-
and trusted councillor of Queen A'ic-
toria's; and known, too, as thc founder
of the Athenian Society ia 180.3. It was
his appearance among Edinburgh review-'
ers that gave rise to Byron's couplet, in
the "English Bards and Scotch Reviewers'.

"-57. rom Princct on^Univcrsityr^FRris^ir
Privy Councillor and vice-president of
the Royal Colonial Institute; has been
J,ord Lieutenant of Aberdensheire since
1S80; was Canada's Governor-General between '93 and '98, and now lives as the
King's representative iu Ireland, having
assumed 'the Lord Lieutenancy four
years ago. Tho man behind the titles is
not tall,, is inclined to stoutness, and
finds his recreation in fishing or'land-
-&rap. gardening.- -         -  -    -
The Aberdeen children'(there are four
sons and a daughter; thc heir, Lord
h.uldo. being now in his thirtieth year,
with Harrow, St. Andrew's and Oxford
behind him, and a home on Cambridge
Square. London, to occupy his time)
have all been brought up "practically."
They had to learn how "to do things"���������
at one time a furnished collage was
placed at thc disposal of Lady .Marjorie.
���������who was expected to keep it "quite tidy"
without outside help; she had lo lay
fires and scrub floors, and she did both.
That cottage stood in a small garden,
which thc sons were told lo cultivate
and tend; each of tho quadumvirate is,
in consequence, more than a-mere amateur in thc growing of fruits and flowers.
FIGHTING SLAVERY AND IGNORANCE
The countess, cordial, sympathetic and
���������whole-hearted, has turned from the first
quite naturally to all sorts of philanthropies and reforms. On hor very wedding trip she made her initial move ot
any considerable sort. The two had
been in Egypt, and while there had
heard from the splendid Gordon of some
ot the awful horrors of thc African slave
trade, which then still flourished all too
-widely. Shortly afterward a dealer in
men, coming aboard the Aberdeen yacht,
offered certain muscular-looking, youths
for probable uses in the'upper reaches
of the Nile; they were seemingly to be
"rented," but their state a9 well a_
tltcir owners' intentions were' very- obvious. Lady Aberdeen took in the situation,' and, after a hurried consultation
with' her husband, stood by flushed and
triumphant, while he, pointing to the
lEngJish Jack, aaid: "Those boys are
free.   I claim them in the uame of the
Queen." And freed thev wer., then and
there.
Another long-ago instance of the coun-
les>' philanthropies was the formation
of "The lladd6''Ho. so Association." Mas.
ter and mistress],.were the first two
membci _^,bul soon'every servant and retainer wa ..''enrolled,' attending-classes in
singing and drawing and wood carving,
listening to,.cpi worts or lectures. It was
a simple enough sort of thing to do in
Americau eyes, but it was more than a
mere rift in the conservative lute of
England's social system. To-day its
democratic principles have widened and
3broadened into "The Onward and Upward Association," with a membership
of many thousands, and centres of work \
all over the '-'tight little, right little is-'
lands."
HELPING THE CAUSE Oh' WOMEN.
When, 1G years ago, Lord Aberdeen
crossed to the big Dominion to the north
of us, his wife transplanted .there her
enthusiasms and energies. '"The Victoria
Order of Nurses in Canada" was the
outcome of her presence, while one of
her first moves was to join'the then
starting movement to form a "National
Council of Canadian Women," to .bind
together in mutual aid and sympathy
the workers in connection'with every society "of national interests in the colony,
regardless 'of ' political or religious
views.
'In its best aud highest sense the entire cause of woman's higher education
,was mightily forwarded bv Ladv Aber-
_��������� m v ���������>
deen during her five years' residence at
Ottawa. Iu- '98, when she was about t������
return home; Queen's University, at
Kingston, conferred upon her an LL.D.,
accepting which she herself best outlined the aims and purposes which had
brought the honor to her.
"I urge the students of both sexe3,"
she said, ."to., remember that'only true
culture affects'-the whole life and being
and character. You may go through college winning prizes and distinctions, and
vet go forth' to vour future- careers in
the realest, most lamentable sense of the
word, uneducated. Vt _ know we can obtain from our universities men and women of learning and attainments,; but
let us obtain also an influence which
shall leaven with a high transforming
power the life of the whole country."
In her fidelity-,to something of this
high sort, .perhaps, lies the key to the
close friendship'which has for a dozen
years existed'between the Aberdeens and
"Ralph Connor," "the novelist-missionary, whose real name is Charles Gordon.
He had been asked to dine with . ;the
Governor General and his wife, and declined' the invitation on the plea of an.
earlier engagement, not to_ be biuken.-
It transpired vthat this engagement was
a promise to preach to some half-dozen
miners, at, a post far distant from even
semi-civilization, and the man's fine
loyalty to his word given" .to such an
end made the strongest of appeals to the
titled two who could so well appreciate
and  admire lm  motives  and .devotion.
MAKING MARKETS .AND  BARRING
"BRIDGE."
When the Aberdeens followed the
Dudleys at Dublin's Viceregal Lodge, in
1905, the good work3 of the Countess
were continued as a matter of course.
She has taken, above all else it may be,
a-deep interest iu the-"Irish Home Industries" cause a movement iu which
large mimbers of Irish workiugmen* and,,
women are1 engaged. She recognized the
sore, need' of, the' poverty-ridden land,
and her-energies and influence ' have
been constantly (and -successfully) at',
work to 'find* fit markets for the'beau-'
"tiful woven materials wliicir~liave come
from their cottage looms, for the beautiful woven materials which have come
from their'' cottage looms, for their exquisite l_ces,""and the marvelous carvings. From, this interest, and largely
through her generous "backing," the
"Irish --Industries Association" has
fcprung into active life. Shops have been
opened in London as well as in Dublin,
and in other large provincial towns, and
the" home-made goods put before thc
public. The result may be guessed:
sales have more than quadrupled and
good prices are maintained; nor is there
a middleman to eat up profits.
Aristocratic- Ireland does not wholly
approve the Duke and _.iclu_-i, however.
In the fir-t place, bridge is tabooed al
t}_c* lodge: in the second place, the L'.ul-
Ion, across iu London, furnishes the
wines and great dinners which the Lord
Lieutenant gives; and finally (and worst
of all in most eyes���������among llio^e, that
i-, who have the entree into the \"ie_-
regal circle) lhe Countess is an outspoken Home Ruler. Nol long after she
had-first come to Dublin, so'runs 'One

of the garden parties of the season:

three homes are at No. 38 Grosvenor
street. London; at ''Tarland Lodge,"
Aberdeenshire, and "Iladdo House,", in
tU.po-lee.iwhire. 'J"., this last the Earl
is said to,be most devoted. /The two-
cenlury-old 'dwelling lies in a rather
bleak corner of his titular county. 1/ut
its immediate surroundings are very
���������fine, the park housing some of the
.noblest'specimens of the old Scotch fir
known to the Highlands. The city
house, too dirty and sooty now (in the
manner of London buildings) well to
show the warm, dull red of its ancient
Georgian bricks, is, above all else, "livable:" those who know it best speak of
its library and drawing-rooms a3 more
.."homey" ' than anything else of their
