He pointed to the fact of  many of our public men having condemned the agreement because of the  injustice and harm it would worij: upon the fruit industry of Canada, an  industry which represented an investment of many millions, and one employing many thousands of laborers.  To the peach growers it meant a  tax of $1 a tree on the home-grown  fruit, and the loss to the Canaldian  apple growers was but little less.  Fully 95 per cent of the fruit growers of the Okanagan were opposed to  the reciprocity compact, as were also  the fruit growers of Eastern Canada.  Mr. Mackelvie predicted Mr. Burrell's election , by   upwards   of 1500.  At the conclusion of Mr. Mackelvies  remarks, Mr. Jas. Johnson, the Socialist candidate for this constituency  addressed the audience for 20 minutes on    the   issues   confronting the  the States refused to hear us. It is  different now. Canada has her own  transportation lines, her own market  and factories, and what we haven't  yet, we are getting���������������������������from the States.

An old gentleman at last rose and said, gravely:  "1 tbiuk if the lady knew that she  had a large hole in each of hor stockings she would not exhibit herself in  this way."  This had the desired effect; she immediately sank down on her seat. A  young minister standing by blushed to  the temples and said:  "Oh, brother, how eould you say  what was not a fact?"  ' '- "Not a fact!'" replied the old gentleman. "If she had not a large hole in  each of her stockings, 1 would like to  know how she gels them on."

Several  trotting associations have already  demonstrated that the popularity of  tho sport with a great majority of the  patrons does not depend on pool selling by the success of their meetings  with the gambling feature eliminated.  That the light harness sport does  not depend on the pool selling, is easily proven by watching the betting  ring at any of the meetings where pool  selling is still permitted. Not one-  tenth of the patrons are seen there.  Speculation is confined chiefly to a  few who follow the circuits for that  purpose solely.

Not ouly  that, but one two-iri-three-heat race  was sq stubbornly contested that it required six heats to decide it.-T Five different horses won a heat, the best time  being 2:1G"V*. with a last half in 1:07^4.

The wise  man alone knows how; to eat." But not  always. It would scarcely be incorrect  to describe Balzac, A'oltaire and Victor  Hugo, for instance, as wise men in their  own way; and yet, they were human  gluttons, whose gastronomic feats  would strike the average reader as  somewhat amazing, to_say thejeast.  ==^a=iraT=h1aTF=t"6~M  the end of a night of hard writing'hc  went to a certain famous eating-house  in Paris and there ordered, and ate, a  little dinner carefully composed of  twelve dozen Ostend oysters, twelve  mutton cutlets, a duck, two roast partridges, a Normandy sole, fruit, coffee,  and liqueurs. Victor Hugo, whose iron  teeth could crush a cutlet bone as if it  wore an almond, sometimes a mused his  grandcluldrcn, after eatiug through. _a  dinner of six courses, by collecting the  remnants of soup, entree, fish, roast,  vegetables, and sweet dishes, mixing  them, and eating this horrible "rftilad"  there and then with obvious pleasure.  Voltaire, who almost lived on strong  coffee, bragged  of drinking sixty cups  John-  record  in the matter of tea.  Judging, however,' from the information contained in. an interesting  book lately published in France, on  "Dining and Its Amenities," it "would  appear that not even Balzac, Hugo,- or  the moro modern eating champions we  occasionally read aboutf/whose feats' for  wagers���������������������������such as, disposing of a trifle  like 20 lb. of plum-duff,, fifty or sixty  eggs, or a score of-pigeons���������������������������would no't --  havo stood much ' chance if matched  against ont or two of the French kings.

Of the  three who6e main lines are shown upon  thc railroad map published ou page 588,  thc Canadian Pacific is completed, and  the Canadian Northern and Grand  Trunk Pacific are under construction  and both slated for completion in the  year  391*1.  Canadian Pacific Railway.  Tke.charter granted by the Canadian  government   to   the   Canadian   Pacific  Railroad,   February   18th,    1881,   prescribed   that .the  road  should- be  car-  .        ricd through to the coast in ten years'  -    .ime.    Fioni  the  government  by  way  of encouragement, the company received $25,000,000 in cash, 25,000,000. acres  of land-fit for settlement, and-713 miles  of Tailroad iu which were included two  of the most difficult sections.    At'that  time the great northwestern section of  Canada 'had  been  favored^ with   little  .or'no . settlement.

So great has been the im  migration into the Northwest, particularly of energetic and thriving farmers  from the United States, that the company at the present time is building  between 500 and 700 miles of new railway each year in the endeavor to keep  up with the development" of the northwestern  country.  It was less than fifteen years ago, in  December of 189G, that the first train  to earn revenue for the Lake Manitoba  and Canal Railway Company���������������������������the nucleus from which has sprung tho present Canadian Northern Railway system���������������������������left Gladstone, Manitoba, on its  one hundred mile trip to Dauphin. Tho  gross revenue from the huudred miles  operated the first year was $60,000;  thirteen men and a boy constituted the  staff, and the payroll was $650 per  mo������������������tk. Within less than fifteen years  the gross revenue of tie Canadian Nor-  1 ''-  \ i  17  I  them and its allied railways has grown  to over $18,000,000, its staff has increased to 48,400, and today the railways of the Canadian Northern systems are mnning in six provinces with  a mileage which has grown at the rate  of a miTe a day for fourteen years.  Farmers of the prairie provinces have  over 3,500 miles of roads at their service, and a glance'at our railroad map  will show that it needs only the completion of connecting links which are  being built between Lake Superior and  the Ottawa Valley and between Edmonton and the Pacific Coast to make  of this system a transcontinental railway, with a widely-diverging and comprehensive system of branch roads.  The expansion of the Canadian Northern' in the wheat-growing belt is being carried out upon a plan which will  result in the possession of five principal  lines running east and west with certain  northwesterly* developments which will  make the system������������������as serviceable*to the  Hudson Bay bread route to Europe as  it is to the present route, by way of  Lake Superior and the St". Lawrence.  One thousand miles from Lake. Superior  the company is opening up vast areas  of wheat land,-as fertile and more.extensive 'than those which have assured  to Manitoba aud South' Saskatchewan  their great reputation ns wheat-producing districts. Southwest of Saskatchewan the line is being built across the  fertile Saskatchewan plain. From the  first seventy-six miles of line in this  district there was hauled in ,1909'2,000,  000, bushels of wheat to Port Arthurj  and in addition to the wheat .business  there are vast timber tracts to the "east  and. northwest .of Prince Albert, which  the new road has brought into, touch  with' the,,commercial world.      -  ..  .The expansion of the Canadian Northern from', Alberta-to the Pacific Coast  was assisted by the guaranteeing, of  the bonds of construction up to $35,000  per-mile by the British Columbia government'. It is -a distinctive "feature  of this system 'that/it/has "been*, produced from witliin the prairie" provinces,"  and'the earning whichit had displayed  assisted greatly-in.securing government  support,' which 7���������������������������was- formally assined  by .ah,.act'passed iu 1910, 'and. was  speedily followed by, the commencement  of- construction ' eastward from'- the  mouth..,of 7the Fraser .

It.is also engaged on the  construction of a line west of Toronto  toward Buffalo. -During 1909 Ottawa  was connected with Montreal and  Quebec by a section of the Canadian  Northern Ontario Railroad, which by  connecting with the Canadian Northern  Quebec, gives*.to Quebec _its  shortest  route to Ottawa and a competitive line  between Quebec aud Montreal north of  the St. Lawrence.  For eight months in the year the  freight business between east and west  mainly goes by thc great lakes. By its  control of a fleet of lake steamers, the  Canadian Northern is, therefore, able  to handle freight from tide-water to  Edmonton for about eight months in  tho year. Tt is necessary to supplement this by an all-rail route, for  which purpose the gap between Cow-  gnnda Junction and Poit Arthur, roughly -150 miles, must be filled and eventually a short line to obviate the necessity of hauling freight from Montreal  to the West by way of Toronto. "This  will be accomplished by connecting Ottawa with the Toronto-Sudbury line at  or near Key < Junction, so as to give  rapid connection with Key Harbor. For  tho Cowganda-Port Arthur gap, the Ontario government has proferred a land  grant of 4,000 acres per mile, and it  is anticipated that the completion of  this line will synchronize with the completion of the line through British Columbia which is guaranteed for 1914.  The year 1910 is notable not only  for the advent of the Canadian Northern at the Pacific Coast, but for its  appearance among Atlantic passenger  fleets. In May the Royal Line of the  Canadian Northern system began a fortnightly service between Bristol and  Montreal, with the "Royal Edward"  and "Royal George," the two fastest  as well as the most splendidly equipped  steamers in the Canadian trade, which  gave Bristol its first up-to-date passenger service with Canada.  The third and latest of the. Canadian  transcontinental railways, the Grand  Trunk Pacific, has the unique distinction of being the only road ever planned and built as a definite transcontinental line, reaching from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Also it is the greatest length of railroad that has ever  been conceived and put under construction in one complete scheme, since it  is 3,556 miles from terminus to terminus. It is the first line to be thrown  across tbe North American continent  from oceau to ocean under one management, thereby being a transcontinental  railway in the fullest sense of thc  word; it crosses the mountains at a  lower maximum altitude than any competing lino; it has been built at a more  northerly latitude than was conceived  possible a quarter of a century ago, the  route laying for the greater part of  its length between the 48th and 54th  parallels, and it has easier grades and  curves than any other" line on the con-  tlneni.   ''  The undertaking owes its inception  entirely to-the bold, progressive policy  of Mr. Charles M. Hayes, the president  of the Grand Trunk Railway system,  who conceived the idea during the short  period he was in charge of the Union  Pacific for Mr. Ilarrimau. When the  scheme was submitted to the Canadian  Government for approval and 'support  it was waimly supported, and tangible  financial assistance was promised. The  Government, however, in deference to  public opinion,'- undertook to construct  and retain. one-half of the line, subsequently leasing it to the;Grand Trunk  Pacific Railway1 for' a term of fifty  years at a rental equivalent to 3-per  cent on the constructional cost, such  interest, however, to be waived for the  first "seven years,, while, the country  traversed was being-settled and developed, tlie company undertaking to de-1  fray maintenance expenses during this  period only. On the mountain section,  which "is perforcedly-the most difficult  from the. engineering point of view,  and consequently the most expensive to  build, the Government is contributing  to' the cost to-the,extent of 25 per  cent.  When the scheme was sanetioned.it  was - decided that - construction . should  be carried "out upon-a high standard,' in  accordance with the requirements "of a  modern railway to. meet the exigencies  of heavy fast traffic for. several years  to come, thus avoiding that realignment  and reconstruction-which is so*, severe  a', burden '^iipon . American - railways today^ For this-reason it was "stipulated  that the ruling grade should, not exceed  four-tenths -of 1 -per cent per "mile  against east and west bound traffic, and  "that curves'should not be sharper than  five "degrees. - Timber^trestles also were"  to -be * omitted j' "unless- itv was" 1 intended  that'such'-should'-be* afterward filled!in  to3fornr a'stable "embankment?; 7>--'----h  Thc _ Government -section -'is"-'l ,804184'  iniles^ti"'" length*,-" a'nd^exterids^.'from'  Monctohf; in ' New'?Brunswick, IwhichJ is  the Atlantic.seaboard^terminal, to'Win-'  nipeg, the ^G rand/Trunk-Pacific/carry:  ing^* tlie/.construction through - from the  latter; point *to.,PrinceVRupert, "onV'tlfe  Paeific'CoastJ/a distance of >about-JL-,785  miles. -It was'^also stipulated^thatrthe  line should *ruii entirely -thrbugluCana-"  dian -territory,;which' restriction';;compelled; the ..'surveyors"; to .-make' a% wide  detour around-the north of thc State  of Maine. ., *, "- .'���������������������������-���������������������������- -'/ /���������������������������;---' 7*i .*/ -  ,1. The railway 'is' to be- carried , across  the^St.-Lawrence River aboutTfoui* miles  above Levis," .After leaving 'Quebec-.the  line rises "sharply and'strikesin a north  and noithwesterly direction through .-the  heart of the .province of- Quebec, until  it crosses the 48th-parallel, keeping,on  the northern slopevof the "Divide" all  the way to ..-Winnipeg." The, construction  of the line through Quebec and Ontario,  has bristled, with.difficulties'/ the greater  part of which, however, were in regard  to the'sending forward of-supplies and  material. The road, 100 feet in width,"  has been cleared the' whole distance between Winnipeg., and,'-Quebec, some  3,344.39 miles, and the grading is well  aJLVj'McdltojraxbLcoinpletj.ojL.  track 3,868 ' tons. On a I per cent,  grade, however, it could handle only  810 tons;* but on'a four-tenths of 1 per  cent, grade, such as is provided on the  new transcontinental line, its hauling  capacitv would be almost double���������������������������  1,596.  The western terminus of the line is  at Prince Rupert, where there is a magnificent natural harbor varying from  three-quarters to one and a half miles  ���������������������������in length, which, varying from 160 to  600 feet in depth, with an unobstructed  entrance three-quarters of a m'ile wide,  is. considered the finest harbor north of  San  Francisco.  That this railway is destined to exercise a far-reaching influence upon the  movement of traffic across Canada,  owing to its easy grades and curvature  and closer proximity "to the Orient, is  admitted on all sides. Moreover, its  physical conditions, combined with substantial construction, will render it the  fastest line between Atlantic and Pacific. Its economic importance is also  incalculable, as it traverses a country  which is new, and the resources of  which arc practically untouched. . In  British Columbia a" 'virgin territory,  rich in mineral, timber, and possessing  excellent stretches of agricultural land,  is being opened up, and the route cannot fail to have considerable influence  upon our trade with Alaska, to which  it will be the obvious highroad, linking  it directly with our manufacturing and  industrial centres, and involving a sea  passage to'S'kagway of only about 500  miles. - '.     "    '       -  DETI  . t:  Westward of Winnipeg the "Grand  Trunk Pacific Jias completed- and inaugurated its service upon the 793 miles  of line to Edmonton.' This section is  laid over the rolling prairie, with thc  result that grades aiul curves are of the  easiest description.  The prairie section extends for 126  miles west of Edmonton to Wolf Creek,  a tributary of the McLeod River. "This  point is the official commencement of  the_mount.iinrdivision,.as.the" section .to  the coast is called, inasmuch as it has  to negotiate the Rockies and the coastal  continuation of thc Cascades. At Wolf  Creek the track is at an elevation of  2,700 feet'above the sea level, and yet  the highest point reached by this railway is only 3,720 feet in the bellow-  head Pass -where the Rockies arc traversed. Tbe Pass, however, is about  100 miles west of Wolf Creek, and from  the latter point the grade rises steadily  and continuously the whole distance,  but only on au average of 10 feet to the  mile, which-ascent is almost imperceptible.  Though the railway cannot offer such  examples of spectacular engineering as  the Rockies in Montana and Colorado,  yet the greatest achievement lies in the  avoidance of these very obstacles, so-as  to provide an almost level route, with  no stiffer grades and sharper curves  than are to be met on the open prairie.  To railway operation this is of far-  reaching value. For instance, a locomotive of the consolidated type weighing  107 tons would haul on a'perfectly level  . MOTORING.

It works out pretty well, this general  owning and general use of motor cars.  There's a cash implication that goes  with each car, and the people who own  them exercise considerable moral influence ovor thc chaps who build roads  and thc like���������������������������when moral suasion fails  they use clubs and other gentle and  refined means of getting good roads  for their cars.

WORDS OP LIFE-LONG LIBERAL  "I speak to you young men of Oxford who are now casting your first  votes to register them against this  measure and in favor- of thc policy  that has brought Canada to its present enviable position."  These are the words of Hon. Clifford Sifton, delivered in an address  against reciprocity given at Oxford  some days ago. The strongest argument against reciprocity heard in the  present campaign was given by Mr.  Sifton' in that memorable address.  ���������������������������"I am not splitting arguments/'  said he, "about the difference of a  cent or two 'between New York or  Montreal on a Canadian delivery, b'ut  I ask you if it is logical that, after  spending millions to develop this  great home market we should throw  it open freely to the United States  and all those other countries. The  market of the Ontario farmer is today the finest, the steadiest, and the  surest in the world.  "If there is an intelligent reason  why this ��������������������������� home market should be  thrown open, this is certainly the  time for that reason to be stated.  There is no jVlace in the world where  producers are so ruthlessly oppressed  by trusts as "in the United States.  It is to the tender mercies of the  beef trust and its ilk that they propose to hand you over, and this,  you are told, will rid you of the mid>  dleman."  Mr. Sifton dealt at length with the  hope of the United States of securing  access , to the natural resources of  Canada and the encouragement that  .would be given to the shipment out-  of Canada of everything in its' raw  state to be manufactured in the United States. The inevitable result-of  such a policy could not,but be a de:  creased population and a diminished  production.    -  There is a tendancy on the part of  some Liberals tor criticise -Hon. Mr.  Sifton for the stand' he has taken on  the reciprocity pact, claiming that he  is unfaithful to his lea'der, Sir Wilfrid Laurier. The fact is, Sir Wilfrid is unfaithful to himself, in that  he has turned his back upon the policy he has advocated for years past.  Listen to Sir Wilfrid at the imperial  conference of 1907: "There was a  time when we wanted reciprocity with  the United States, but ,our efforts  and our, offers were put aside." ' We  have said good-bye to that trade  and we now- put our hopes upon  British trade. '  What has happened to cause Sir  Wilfrid to turn his back upon his former policy? Nothing, so far as Canada is concerned. But the past five  .y_cars^ihav_e=,witnessed=the-==greatcst.  emigration of Amerioan farmers to  the Northwest that ever has' been  witnessed in the world's history. It  has been a period of greatest prosperity, for* these emigrants have  brought millions of dollars with  them and have induced other millions  to follow. The manufacturers of the  United States - have likewise moved  across" tlfe line and established Canadian branches to supply the demand  of the Canadian market. All this  has meant the annual loss to the  states of many millions,, and also the  loss of thousands of her best citizens.  Everything possible was done by the  states to check the exodus to Canada  without avail. Finally, seeing what  Canada was doing, and being unable  to stop the inflow of American capital and men. and institutions, the  proposition came from tlie United  States government for reciprocity.  And Sir Wilfrid,��������������������������� astute as he is,  jumped at the bait. Had Sir Wilfrid at that time answered the request from the United States with  the words uttered.by him at the imperial conference in 1907, he would  have won the esteem of every Britisher and every Canadian. On the  contrary, he deliberately walked into  the trap set for him, and now he is  attempting to  justify  his course.  If prominent Liberals refuse to follow him, he must accept the responsibility, not they. Mr. W. T. White  of Toronto, vice-president of the National Trust Co., and one of the 18  Liberals who signed the anti-reciprocity manifesto when the pact was  first made known, put the question  correctly in an address at Toronto a  few days ago. "In my opinion this  is not a question of party politics,"  said Mr. White. "It is a great eco-;  nomic and national issue in which all  minor political differences are absorbed -and merged. It is a question above parties and above individuals. * * * It is said that both  parties have been committed ,to- reciprocity since confederation. This  is not true, although it is a fact that  both parties were favorable to it for  a great number of years. We all favored it when we were dependent upon the bounty, of the United States  for admission to her markets, but  that day has passed and gone forever. There are no birds in last  year'is nests, and reciprocity is an  old nest, a generation old now, and  there are, no birds in it for Canada.  * * * The other contention is that  reciprocity is an advantage to the  farmers of Canada. Now I have  only one speech on this aspect of the,  case for the city, and..the country.  * * * My political faith is that,  situated as we are, this country needs  a reasonable protection for all its industries including farming,' and each  part of the community must be content to see others receive the share  of protection to which they are respectively entitled. Now,' having  settled this principle, let-us examine  this agreement. .Canada has a population of 8,000,000." United States,  90,000,000., Both countries are:. principally agricultural, producing many  millions in-value more than they consume. Both are manufacturing nations ambitious to extend their trade  "Now  what   about   this..wonderful  market of 90,000,000 we hear so much  about ? One would think that 90,-  000,000 people were standing in :a  bread . line .just , across* the bolder  waiting ��������������������������� to be fed ���������������������������!

CHAPTER  IX.  Adrift Again  WELL. I rode purty tol'ablc slow  Some way I didn't want to go  back to the Lion J lead Hand). 1  liuew 'at .lim would be glad to see me,  but 1 knew I'd be lonesomer there than  among total strangers; so 1 just floated,  punehiu' row's mostV the time, but not  'ninniii' very long over Uie same range.  It wa* ,ju>t aliout this period that 1  begun to loi-e my seriuu.s view o'life  and get more man-like. The usual idea  is. that a boy is a careless, happy, easy-  yoin' sort of a creature, and a man is a  steady, serious minded, thoughtful kind  of an outfit; but just the reverse. A  boy starts oiit bciievin' most 0* what's  iold hini an' thinkin ; that it V his duty  io reform the world; an' about the only  thing he is careless of is human, life���������������������������  his uwii or anv one else's. Fact u' the  matter is that if von watch him close  enough you'll find out that even in his  "���������������������������lines   a   boy   is   about   the   solemnest  ���������������������������Uiin������������������  on   earth,  air   you   have to know  an,' he  lay down  last resort.  the game piirtv ttiorougn to tell when  it drifts into a real light. That's why  all wars have been fought by boys.  Thev believe in anv cause 'at looks big  cMioufb to lav down their lives for, an'  that's their chief ambition. - A man,  though, gets to see after a time that  the1 's'niost generally somebody up behind who's, working the wire  yets so 'at he don't want to  ���������������������������uivbody's life, except as a  He looks favorable upon -amusement,  an'- after a while lie kind o" sort o*  etas hardened to the fact that the  whole thing's a joke and he'd rather  laugh thau shoot. Why, J 'd be more  afraid of a bov with a popgun than I. d  be of a man with a standiu' army.  So as 1 wiid, it was just about tins  " mv life that L begun to hunt,  places to eat and sleep;  an' it I heard of  next countv 1 turned out an  round. l" did a little of every  lugged a chain  surveyor  chance in  of gamblin  first thing  time in  up   pleasant  in    the  went  in  1  ar  thing;    even    ...bfc-  outfit, but the wasn't enough  that, i got to have a trace  in anything I do; so the  knew'j was down in Ne-  ������������������������������������u- .������������������������������������������������������". i'or the treasure 'at Bill  Brophv had buried there.

Well, ['.ranged around in tlie uioim-  tain** between .Nevada and California,  lookin' I'or a flat-shape<f voc-k with^ a  mountain-peak on'caeh side of it. air a  cold- wind swecpin' up .the canon-���������������������������  1 don't know just how the cold wind  got included, 'but the dyin' outlaw  dwelt upon that cold wind something  particular. 1 stayed out purty  thc season, an' if cold winds  tifyin', Brophy had his treasure buried  niii'ty- impartially nil  over the West  ney. We worked like beavers for a  while, gettin' our stuff outdoors, an' it  was as hot as summer outside.  "That's the only drawback to this  cave," said Slocuni. "It will be all  to the good wheu the winter settles in  earnest, but it will be some bother  while it'o still snowin' an' thawiu'."  I told hini that I agreed with him to  <iifh an extent'that if I could locate  the burro I'd rather risk gettin' back  to humanity than to dyin* there of  rheumatiz.    I was wringin ' wet through.  "Nobody can't die of rheumatiz  around me," sez Slocuni, an' he went  to oue of his packs an' got out a piece  of root. ''"'Chew this," sez he, "an' il  will drive the rheumatiz out, of your  system."  Anybody would have trusted those  eye.--, so I chewed the root i'or about a  minute, an' then L chewed snow an'  mud au' tobacco an' red pepper for an  hour, tryin' to get rid of the taste.  Drive the rheumatiz out of your system? Why, the blame stuff would drive  out your system too if you' chewed it.  long enough. Tt was the tarnatiouest  sruii.' 'at ever a human man met up  with.  "It's most too strong to fake pure,"  sez Slocuni, "but if you grind it an'  put a small pinch in a quart of alcohol it makes a fine remedy. Don't  throw the rest o' that root away. There  is enough there to do you a* lifetime."  "Ves," sez J. "there is, an' more."

Prom   that   on  the first of  1 begun to  think in a circle, an' my intellect  creaked like a dry axle before the bluebirds began to sing. Quiet? 1 could  hear the shadows crawlin' along the  side of the house. The snow was seventy-five feet deep in fhe canons, so you  might say 1 was duty bound to stay  there. As a general rule, I don't shirk  breakin' a path, but when the snow is  more than fifty feet higher than my  head, I'd rather walk fourth or fifth,  When the outfit came back in the  spring 1 was tho entire reception committee; but T bet the' never was one  more able  to  de its  pan.  ain't no slave to his envirament  burro  cause  he generally eats it. -My burro was fat,  an' the clump of pine trees had mostly  disappeared. I loaded up my stuff,  shook hands with S'loeuni,  down the mountain  started Slocuni sez to ine, "I'm sure  sorry to see you go. L don't generally  get much friendly with folks any more,  bnt f took to you from thc first, an' any  time I can clo you a favor, all you got to  do it to wink."  "What's your general plan of occupation, Slocuni?" sez I.  "All that L ever expect to,do for the  and started  Just as I got fully  "I'm  remainder  search  for  - "Well,"  to do me a  I'm  late- in  was idea  nnpa  I'd  fallen  in   with-Slocuni.  1   reckou   I 'd   have  died  if  I'  .1 if I hadn't  Slocum was a  oncer lookin' specimen!, when you first  came upon him. His skin didn't fit  him very well, bein' a trifle too big,  an' wrinkled an' baggy in consequence; his eves was kind ot a washy  blue, an' thev stuck out from his face,  jrivin' him liie most, sorrowful expression 1 ever see. Von just couldn't be  suspicious of a man with such eyes as  that; he seemed to have th rowed himself wide open an' invited the whole  world to come an' look inside. Why,  a perfect stranger would have trusted  Slocuni with his last plug of tobacco,  and like as not he'd have gotten part  of it back. Well, as I said. 1; was  headiu' i'or warmer weather, but I got  overtook an' had about given up all  hope when I' noticed the smell of smoke  in the air. I was walkin' on foot air  pulliir a burro with a pack behind me,  .nii-Laftcr-a-tiniC-  J.Jocated  that smoke  comin' right up through  thc snow.  L veiled and shouted around for a  while without gettin' any response.  Night a nd the snow was both fallin *<f ast,  an' that smoke was exceeding temptin'.  Pinallv I took a piece of burlap ofl  the pack, put it over the hole where  the smoke was comin' through, an'  piled snow on top of it. I was curious  to see what would happen. 1 waited-���������������������������  perhaps it was only live minutes, but it  -s-eeined -that many-hours���������������������������an-'~_thon- a'  low, calm voice, down somewhere beneath me, sez. "'Get off that chimney!"  "[  will,"' sez I. "when yon  tell  mo  how  to get   to  the  fire."  I waited again, an' then a man with  a lantern emerged into tlie cut about  f'urtv feet below me. au' told me how  I co'iild wind around aud come down to  him. Well, me an'  worked it out, air  with long whiskers  vhirt-sleeves in front  mow.  "    Vou   like   to   a'  lie   grumblod.

'"'Got any tobacco?" sez he.  " Plenty,'" sez L  ' ��������������������������� Vou 're  welcome,''  sex.  he.  We took  the  burro over to a  of   pine   woods  an'   turned   him  an' then T crawled in through the tunnel to Sloeum's fire.    Tt was in a  cave  which  had  a   natural   chimney  riinnin'  up the  hill, au' it  looked  considerable  much like Paradise to me.    We ate an'  smoked to gather for a week, an' then  one day our fire went out an' a Hood of  water poured  down   through  the  ehim-  hiiiiney   to   work  that was the only  it tract  vour ai-  sez he.  I, .'.'but 1 'm  there 's room  clump  ioosc,  ever expect  of my days," sez he, "is to  my Rheumatiz Remedy."  sez I, "any time you get  favor in that line, it'll be  when I'm to weak lo wink." So we  parted the best o' friends, an' 1 went  on to a lumber camp, where I put in  the winter bossin' a gang. I. didn't  know much about lumber, but the men  there.was just the same as anywhere  else,  an'  wc got  along  fine.  I was" bossin"' a little ranch up in  Idaho next J'uiic when .1 heard ..tell"of a  big strike in the Esmeralda " range���������������������������  not such .a*-great distance from where.  I had spent the week with Slocum. The  report had it that a feller named Slocum had located the big ace of gold  mines, an' L was some et up with curi-..  osity to see if it was the same Slocum;  but I was needed at the ranch that  winter, an' as J took a likin' for the  young feller who was tryin' to make  it go, I stuck to him, au' it wasn't until the followin' July that I pulled out  an'  floated  down  that way.  Well, it was the same old Slocum sure  enough, ile was, the most unlucky cuss  'at ever breathed, 1 reckon. Every  time he had made up his mind to do  something, Fate had stepped up an'  voted again it. lie had "wasted the  best part of his life locatin' gold mines  "at wouldn't hang out. until at last  even he got disgusted an* went to  huntiir for his Injun root to cure rheumatiz with. First thing he knew, he  had stumbled on a bonanza lode in thc  Esmeralda range. This here lode was  a peach.

CHAPTER   TEN  A Winter at Sloeum's Luck  They only  brought- out  gang that, summer, an' they  about half a  kept them  probin' around all over the neighborhood; but though they found enough  stuff to about pay .expenses, they could  not get back on the main track. Both  the Eastern-capitalists showed up along  toward ��������������������������� fall to see what was doin',  air' when it came time to knock off  work, they tried to get ine to repeat  my little performance as watchman.  I thanked 'em for their trustfulness,  but I politely declined the honor. I  told 'cin 'at T was purty to!'able quickwitted, an' it didn't take ine four  months to study out what I was goin'  to say next. But I compromised by  sayin' that if they would give me two  other fellers for company I'd stay;  otherwise they'd have to rustle up  some poor devil 'at needed the money.  They knew 'at I was reliable, so they  agreed; an' I selected out, my companions in affliction. What I mostly  wanted was .a heap o' variety, air"  when "the number is limited to two. a  feller has to be some choicy; but T reckon [ got. the best the' was.  There'd been'a little light-haired feller there all season, kind o' gettin' familiar   with   labor,   like.     He  store an' got three bushels o' nickle  libraries, enough grub to do six men  six months; enough "tobacco to 'do twelve  men a year, an' a little yeller pup 'at  we give six bits for. 17didn't 'low to  run any risks this deal.  When we got back 'most everybody  had pulled out, an' the roads was begin-  nin' to choke up. Slocum an' the two  capitalists was there waitin for us,/but  wheu all their stuff was loaded on the  wagon the' wasn't room for the men;  so Miller, the youngest capitalist; who  was a bit of a high-roller, an' had been  shakin' up the coast off an' on, he took  olf four trunks, an' sez to me, "Happy,  if you run out of clothes, here's four  trnnks-fiill." Then they hopped on  the wagon an' left us alone in our glory.  1   reckon, take   it   all   in   all,   that  was    about    the    most    florid    winter-  1    ever    put  spoilt    me  the    cookin  in,  air  it    purt  for    hard    work.      I  the   innocents   did  nigh  did  thc  chores, an' we got. along as bully as a  .fat, bear for a while, livhr in the hotel.  The' was a hundred rooms, but - we  didn't use 'em all. Locals, he wrote  most of the time, when he wasn't look-  in' at the ceiling an' tryin' to think.  Hammy, he walked barefoot in the  snow, an' hollered at thc snow-capped  mountains. I read nickle libraries, an'  we didn't care a dang for the Czar of  Russia, until along toward Christmas  a spark lit. in my pile of litac-hnre, an'  doggone near burned the hotel down.  Then we began to feel snowed-in. Locals had writ himself dry, Hammy was  tired of listeniu' to himself, besides  havin' chilblains up to his knees, an'  I was half crazy, 'count of havin'  nothing   to   read.     Wc   didn't   have   a  there all  iar   v  Hi-count to work  was no  he couldn't even learn  to tie"-'a knot; but he talked kin' o'  blotchy, nn' it was divertin'. to listen  to him. One day we was kiddiir him  about being so thuniby. -an-'-he sez.  "Th'at-'s "right, boys, laugh" while yon  can; but I'11 have-you all between the  covers of a book "some day, an' then  it-will "be my grin, f.- ain't swore to  no cverlastiir felicity to thc holy cause  o; labor: I'm just gettin' -local color  now."  .Xoxt. day he fell into a,barrel of red  paint, he,was swobbin' on thc hotel to  keep her from, warpin ', an-', every blessed'man in ca in p" passed out. about six  jokes apiece relatin' to local color. He  never  saddened   up  none,   though,  just  he pitied  nickle between us, so we couldn't gamble, an' I resigned my mind that when  spring climbed np the trail the'd be  two corpses an' one maniac in that-  cussed  hotel.  -One day ITammy came stalkin' in  to where me an' Locals was playin'  guess. Guess ain't never apt to be a  popular pastime 'cause it has to be  played without any kind o' cheatin'  whatever. The. one who is it, guesses  what the other is thinkin' of, an' if he  guesses before he falls asleep, hc wins.  Well, Hammy he breaks in on our game  just the same as if we hadn't been  doin' anything at all, an' I knew by  his action that the' was somethin'  afoot. Whenever Hammy was ready to  speak something, he always walked  like a hoss 'at was string-haltered in  all four legs. "Well, he paraded up to  us-that day, hip action, knee action,  and instep action all workin', stopped  in front of us." folded his arms, au' sez,  "Good sirs, 1 have conceived a fitting  fete.''  (To be  Continued)  smiled  sorrowful,  as  just looked as if they's said, "Now  then, there's Slocuni; he been hammered so long he's got callous to it.  Let's jus' see how he'd act if we  .-witched his luck on him." Air.they  sure done it.  Slocuni, he scratched around until he  see that if was no joke, an' then he  set bait I'or a couple of capitalists. He  trapped two beauties, an' they put up  the assets an' went in, equal partners.  They sunk shafts-nil.'-built'stamp mills  air' smelters an' retorts���������������������������oh. they sure  made plans to get the metal wholesale. As soon as it began to flow in  they built stores and shacks an' a  big hold���������������������������they wasn't timorous about  puttin' their coin into circulation, you  bet your life, an' it looked as if they  was going to flood the market,  Well, S'loeuni. he owned a third of  everything, mind, au' his expression  flopped square over like a  an' stayed points up. He  those years 'at he'd been  muddy end of it, an'  got 'em to call the  Luck." The' wasn't  such  an insult as that  on  taugliu  though  up everything  after  mine  no  ci  into  dry moon,  forgot all  havin' the  a time he  " Slocum ;s  ill to hurl  the mouth  of an honest, hard-workin' mine, an'  naturally, as soon as it was done, the  mine laid down in its tracts an' refused  lo give up another ounce.  They came to a break in the lode  an' couldn't find the beginning again.  The same twist that had hove one edge  out of tho ground had unjointed the  other. But they had got out a tidy  .sum already, an' they knew the' must  be a loose end somewhere, so they was  anxious to keep their outfit in good  order.  Slocum hadn't swelled clear out of  shape with his new fortune, an' when  1 made myself known to him he had  give me a purty tol'ablc decent sort  of a job. where there was more bossin'  an' responsibility thau brute labor; an'  I felt kindly toward him. Winter lasted  full  four months out  there.    It  wasj  us. au * went  ho touched.  An' then there was another curious  specimen! there; a tall, thin feller, with  oue o' them lean chiuny faces. He  claimed 'at he had been a show actor,  but his lungs had given out���������������������������claimed  he was a tragudian,' but Great Scott!  lie couldn't  even turn a  handspring.  He said he was recuperatin', and he  sure did hit his liquor purty hard; but  I never could make out what he expected to get out of a minin' camp,  'cause he was full as useless as Local  Color. About half the fellers you meet  strayin' around ont here are a bit onesided .-bit L���������������������������w_e._(loii.lt -care, so-long���������������������������.a s_  they're peaceable. When you'd guy  this one a little stout, he'd fold his  arms, throw back his head, an' say,  cracklin' o' thorns under a pot, is the  laughter of fools." This was the brand  of landwidge "at flowed from this one,  air" hc wasn't no ways stingy with it.  Well, they had kept these two at.  boys' jobs an' boys' wages, an' when  I offered "cm the position of deputy  watchmen, they fair jumped at it. Said  Local-Color." It will be a golden-opportunity to perpetuate the seething  thoughts which crowd upon my brain."  Said Hamlet, "f thank thee, sir, for  this, thy proposition fair. In sooth  I 'II I ry the cold-air cure, and in the inn  jesty of prime-evil silence, I shall make  the snow-capped mountains echo to the  wonderful rhapsodies of Shakespeare."  Well, the' was a .superabundance of  cold air an' prime-evil silence an' snowcapped mountains, an' I didn't care a  hang what, he did to 'em, so long as it  kept me from gettin' everlastin' sick  o' my own company.  1 never see any company yet 'at  wasn'r a shade better-'n just my own.  I knew I could stand these two innocents for four months, an' if they got  violent I could rope 'an tie 'em. When  everybody begun to get ready to pull  out, I took the twenty-mule team down  In town to get our needin's. I look the  children along with mc, an' I sez to  'om. "Now, boys, no drinkin' goes up  above through the winter. Wc simply  have to go out an' get disgusted with  it before we start back."      /  Well, avc sure had a work-out. On the  sixth day Hamlet, he throws his arm  around my neck an' busts out cryin'  an' sez. '* Happy, it is the inflexible  destiny o' the human race to weary of  DUELS WITH DEATH  It would be difficult to find," in all the  records of brave men's heroism, a more  stirring example than is given -in the  story of the great Kiiiiberley mud fight  which took place a few years ago.     :,.__  As a result of it-six English miners  were a warded,1 the Lid ward medal, -and  wore hailed by our late King as patterns  for the Empire. . ..   -   -    ,  They worked in the famous diamond  mines of Kimberlcy, and part of. their  duty was the supervision of bands "of  natives-engaged in the work.  One morning, wnen everything was  going along as smoothly as possible, aud  a party of these natives were hard at  work in a comer of the mine, they were  startled by a dull noise outside as if  a few tons of some soft substance had  been hurled against the high door that  separated the spot where they worked  from the Jong tunnel leading,to the  shaft. " .  "The mud!" they cried, and dropped  their picks in nn instant.  There was no mistaking the sound.  It was the dreaded mud, the terror of  diamond miners. -  A m.ud rush means" certaiii death to  all on its track, ft gives no warning.  It comes along silently, like an ugly  wriggling snake working its way swiftly, sparing nothing, covering every-  thing, a sucking, suffocating foe that  strikes fear into fhe hearts of all who  sec, .it   To make mutters worse, the place  where thc natives worked was a sort  of hollow���������������������������n little chamber which, as  already indicated, they reached by descending a steep hill. Had the tunnel  been flat they could have opened the  door "-nd floundered through the mud  quitb easily, but owing to the slope, the  slime quickly had them prisoners, It  had risen higher than the door in a few  minutes, and if it poured long enough  there was-nothing to prevent its rising  till it streamed. over the high wall in  which  the door was fixed,  They shrieked for help, and the Englishmen at the opening to the tunnel  roared out, "Climb to'the top of the  wall," which the miners promptly did.  They were safe there, for the time at  least.  "Stnv when  Suddenly, almost in the moment of  victory, the outlook was blackened. A  loud,- .terrifying cry ran through the  workings.  "The mud!    The mud!"  There it was again, a black stream  of death rapidly refilling the tunnel.  Within a few minutes the work of mauy  hours had been destroyed.-  The deadly swish delivered its mournful message to the imprisoned natives,  and their agonized wails mingled with  the sighs of the trtrong, beaten men  staring moodily at the inky river rising  and rising.  The river flowed our 'Soon the tunnel  was a tunnel no longer; H was a dull  mass of rising slime that deadened the  cries of tho mud-barred miners.  It (lowed for hours. Then, like some  tired-out torturer, it slowed down again  and ceased, leaving -d great black bar-  ner as a memento of its mastery.  The rescuers sat round on a neighboring rock and looked down at the all-  powerful King of Diamonds, for the  minute they were nonplussed���������������������������hopeless.  Then they held a council of war. Each  man was invited to suggest what he considered thc best means to adopt in tackling the enemy.. All manner of suggestions wero made, most of them worthless., but in thc end it was decided to try  and reach the men, not by removing* the  mud, but by passing over it.  It was a perilous undertaking. One  man placed a plank upon the face of  the mud and stretched himself on it,  the others standing by ready-to drag  him off if thc support showed signs of  sinking. Fortunately it didn't. A littlo spade was handed to the roscnor, and  he began to cut into thc mud and so  pull his.way along down the tunnel like  a man faco downwards in a canoe pulling himself forward witb a paddle.  When he had gone a few yards the  danger became greater owing to the  fact that he was now beyond the roach  of his fiiends. He was solclv depend-"  ont .now on the treacherous mud. If it  failed him he would sink and be swallowed up before the eyes of his comrades.  But he worked bravely on���������������������������half-inch'  by half-inch. Another plank followed,  with another man on it.  Jn half an hour six men wore laid  flat on six planks in the middle- of the  mud surface. If thc mud took to seething ,ancl bubbling for a moment they  were doomed. There was no way out.  Sixty-five feet of mud, and between'  them,and it a plank that might keel  over any second and send them to a  suffocating death.  Ahead were the shrieking natives;  behind was the hidden spring of destruction that might let loose its slime again,  flood the tunnel still more, and cause the  planks to capsize like a cockle craft-ou'  a turbulent sea.  And   the   rescuers, ��������������������������� forgetting   it  all,  plodded on their muddy way, half-inch -  by half-inch. . -    ,  As the news went, round- thousands -  of people thronged-to the head of the  shaft.--and by the-.time'the first lu'a'ir-  reached the prison- house all -South..

"If you jump down you'll  be sucked in and suffocated in two  minutes."  And while the natives sat there  staring wild-eyed at the great black  mass that cut them off from safety the  other men at the ont ranee to the passage set to and fought the foe with huu  dreds of buckets and shovels.  It, was dreary work, The men slaved  steadily on all day. and the natives  looked on, and prayed, and cheered, and  wept. The rush of mud had stopped,  fortunately, and after thousands of  bucketfuls had been removed the rescue  seemed certain.  'Tis a Marvellous Thing.���������������������������When the  cures effected by Dr. Thomas' Eclectric  Oil are considered, the speedy an-:I permanent relief it has brought to the suffering wherever it has been used, it  must bo regarded as a marvellous thing  that so potent a medicine should result  from the six ingrodieuts which enter  into its composition. A trial will convince the most skeptical of its healing  virtues.  A DIAMOND SAW  There i.s in use in France a circular  diamond saw for cutting stone. The  diamonds lhat form the cutting teeth  of the saw are common crystals, worth  about 10s. a carat, and they arc fixed  in a steel disc over ti feet in diameter,  which is mounted on a-spindle and re-_  yolvedby electric poweFirTtLe VnTinuer"  in which an ordinary circular saw is  operated.  For sawing hard stones there are 20#  diamonds in the cutting edge, and the  speed is .'*00 revolutions a minute. Thc  saw enters the stone about one foot in  that time.  For soft stones the teeth arc of steel,  with diamonds at-intervals about every  five teeth/aud at a speed of twelve  turns a minute the saw advances a yard  a minute. This saw cuts and dresses  the stone on all sides and gives it sharp  outlines, and it accomplishes its work  at one-eighth to one-tenth the cast of  hand labor.

The training has not only improved  the boys physically but has changed them from  irresponsible, howling little imps iu times of excitement  into well-mannered, self-controlled and helpful boys.  Physically, the7training has had au even better effect,  for a few years ago Winnipeg boys were, as a class, a most  ungainly, awkward lot, and walked about the streets more  like descrepit old men than healthy boys.  The scouts are easily distinguishable from the non-scouts,  "just by thoir carriage and tho smart way they pick up their  feet; also the high water mark usually so prominent around  the edges of a boy's countenance has receded farther into  obscurity on tho persons of thc Scouts, perhaps has been  obliterated altogether.  Not only have the manners and physique of the boys  been improved/but thoir mental faculties have been trained  in a way that could never have been accomplished in a  schoolroom. They are taught to keep thoir eyes and oars  open, and are able to give an intelligent account of all the  little incidents which have come under their notice.  We can all see the great benefit this training is to the  boys, but what about the girls?  There are girl scouts in Winnipeg, too, [ believe, but a  very small number of girls seem. to think their carriage  needs improvement, when, as a matter of fact, they need  physical training quite as much as the boys do.  Tn the United States the leading women's colleges have  introduced dancing as a part of each day's exercises, and  in the public schools "of New York, a young" woman is engaged to teach ~the national'dances of Russia and" Poland  and tho Morris dance of England. The schools of Chicago  have started the same movement and, perhaps in the���������������������������cburse  of.time, it may extend-to Winnipeg schools; and.our next  generation of Canadian, women may have as fine a carriage  and as free "and as graceful a walk as that for which,the  American woman, has always been noted.  ���������������������������    ���������������������������    ���������������������������        '- ",  Years ago, when I first road the -Yellow Plush Papers, L  thought Thackeray must'have had eitherNa bad nightmare  or a horrible imagination when he wrote them; but frequent  restaurant dining in the last few years has��������������������������� undeceived me;  and I know now that he wrote the sober words of truth.  3���������������������������TIie ways of a waiter,with one's food are wonderful and  worth watching.

" ������������������  These w.meri who go out to work by the day are the  hardest-worked individuals, either male or female, of any  in the community; bm notwithstanding all this, wc pay  Llieni thoir fifteen or twenty cents an hour much more reluctantly than we would hand out the same amount for  any other purpose whatever.  A woman who works by the day works every minute of  thc time she is in her employer's house; she takes not more  than twenty minutes at the most for her dinner where a  man takes always an hour, and ten minutes is more-often  the time she spends over her mid-day meal. She wastes no  time rolling and smoking cigarettes, a.s do the city laborers  at work on the streets.  These charwomen work day after dav at thc very hardest  work, washing, ironing, house-cleaning, scrubbing, pulling  about heavy furniture, and sweeping and shaking heavy  rugs and carpets; yet nine women out of every'ton who  engage them, grudge the pitiful dollar fifty or sixty which  they give in return for so much work.  Women have always been called harder taskmasters than  men, and certain it is- that no wonian would tolerate such  loafing among her household holpers as is to bo seen any  day wherever city laborers are at work. A woman works  fast and well���������������������������or loses her job; her aim being to get her  work done and done well; but a laborer's sole aim in life  seoms to be to loaf the minute his foreman's back'is turned  and, when he is obliged to work, to move as slowly as it is  humaul-y possible to do.  Being an invalid one summer T had nothing better to do  than to sit' on the verandah all day to watch the city  laborers putting in their time trying to avoid work. I  figured out that fully one third of the time for which they  were paid was spent in rolling cigarettes or leaning up  against their shovels or wheelbarrows���������������������������resting for the next  cigarette.  I now firmly believe that story of the Irishman who left  his pick hanging in thc air when" the dinner bell rang.  No woman employer would tolerate such a state of  things for a minute, she would either dismiss the loafer on  the spot, and probably do the work herself, or else pay  according to the work done, and the trouble with her would  be that she would err in the opposite direction and demand  the  maximum  of  work  for  the.  minimum  of  pay.  We all know that thc,cost of the bare necessities of life  has increased greatly the last few years, but we fail to  consider that our washerwoman requires these necessaries  as well as we do, aud that in order to meet the iucreased  c"ost she must have increased pay. I often have women  tell me that thoy consider it ridiculous to be obliged to pay  their charwoman a dollar and a half a day, while in the  East, where thoy came from, they could get a first-class  woman to work all daj- for seventy-five cents. Well, if  they can, and have done it, they ought to be ashamed to  tell it. It is certainly no credit to any wonian that she  allowed any other woman to work all . day���������������������������at. what all  women acknowledge to be hard work for seventy-five  cents. ..  *    f    *  A recent number of T. P.'s magazine contains a forecast  of the trend of ideas and activities in the new "reign,  written by the most eminent" authorities of the day, and,  among others, Mr. Robert "Ross talks of- the possibilities "of  painting and painters.  Mr. Ross is a noted art critic 'and contributor to most  of* the leading journals and magazines of England,-so it  may be taken for granted that he knows what he is talking  about; and his remarks are applicable" to Winnipeg as well  as to England.-  "Painting-can" never have, any part in the promised reconstruction of national life until, we have a school of  monumental artists, e.g., artists who are permitted to carry  out decorations on wall spaces- in* public buildings. The  English climate, particularly that of London, is unfavorable  to the preservation' of. fresco (in the Italian"-sense of the  word); but'there arc other methods by which the,difficulty  can be obviated: ,the application-of canvas,or zinc to the  wall; and where the light "is fair, the covering of the wall-  picture by glass. TJie revived use of "tempera should also  be developed for the purpose. Paintings in frames, which  can be carried about to exhibitions, removed and sold at"the  death of.the owner, have no relation to national life. .They  become the sport of the collector, thc dilettante,'the dealer,  and the expert. We have several 'great artists and,, many  capable painters at the present day. BuVthey are" unrecognized by official" corporations, or arc patronized along with  others who are incapable. The responsibility is'divided-be-  tween the .Royal -Academy -. (which ���������������������������,has* persistently- en-  .couraged-mediocrity for the. last, forty, years, and until recently ignored the more-vigorous art of'the day),-and .the  Chantrey trustees, who, with the exception of a picture by  Mr. Sargent, have, never purchased a-first-rate work7AVith-  out. the/reconstructipn or abolition-of both--these" bodies J  see no.hope for-national art. , ^ y- .;"- , ���������������������������.";,.  ,���������������������������-"/.* On' the" "other liaud,"c\*mists must, abandon' the-sacerdotal attitude wiiich'thcy'~adoptcd7'it" the 'instance "of-Whis'c-  Jerriii,.,the, last7 century;yThe^thcorylth'nt >no.;fpner u"nless;an  artist, must-"discus's,- criticize7oi7appraise a���������������������������work_;of .art",is  unhealthy-. --It-creates-,an artificial "gulf ; between ?thc'*pro"-  ducer and'consumer?-.- A-person ma'y7"not''Jciiow how-to make  buttey.but he can tell quite well whether the butter'is bad",  provided"- his .palate and. -olifactory- :scnses.*are, jn .normal'  condition.'.- -'A- predilection -for bad .-art-or- vulgar', art is^an  acquired*" taste; .like anything else. ���������������������������'Quite healthy, people  (healthy-.'children, for example)!" have,T'of-'course. -no taste  at aiy.at least'in. the arts.

By getting more in touch  with, literature, science, religion, and "scepticism of their  time, they will make art not the hand-maid but the hand-  mirror of national life as it was in Greece," in the Middle  Ages, and in the earlier Renaissance.- They must not enter  into competition with the camera and cinematograph," both  of which have relieved them of any necessity to be realistic  or actual or ephcrmal. They must avoid triviality of motive  in their pictures. The-old masters often painted their wive's  and mistresses as Madonnas. The modern'artist is much, too  inclined to paint Madonnas, as his wife or mistress. * Subject, is the most important thing in a picture, no'less im-  p.ortant_than_drawing, -color.-and-design.���������������������������-   sff) LOVE ROMANCES OF THE ROYAL  , ACADEMY  Only a pictured face on the Academy  wall A pair of blue eyes full of laughter and mischief, a dimple that seems  to eome and go as you look at it, a  tiny rosebud of a mouth, and a dainty  little head running over with golden  curls. Only a painted face. But what  potentialities of romance may lurk iu  its pictured beauty!  Such  was  thc  sweet  vision  that arrested  the eyes of Edward Fortescue,  the wealthy scion of the noble family o  of that name, at the Academy Exhibition   of  185-4.    Thc  picture  was   by   a  young and unknown artist, ancl it bore  the     simple     but     expressive      title,  "Springtime."     At   the   first  sight  of  that "fair young  face,  with   its merry  dancing   eyos,   Edward   Fortescue   lost  His heart.    Me determined at any cost  to find its owner, and, after weeks of,  pursuit,   ran   the  artist   to  earth   in   a  small   village   in   thc   heart   of   Wales.  From  him  ho  learnt  that  the  original  of  "Springtime"  was  his  only  sister,  who   had   died  suddenly,  tragically,  of,,  heart-failure   less  thau   a   month   after   ���������������������������  the   last   touch -had   been   put   to   her - ���������������������������  portrait.  Fortescue    was    inconsolable.      The.  sweet   face   haunted   his   waking tand , ���������������������������  sleeping   hours.     Por    him    no 'other,  henceforth, however fair, hold thc least?  attraction.    For a few years ho "sought  distraction in other lands, but the blue''"  eyes   pursued   him.    On   his   return .he  flung  himself   into   political ,work~ and  social pleasures, but nowhere could .-he' .  find  solace or -'escape. - One  Decembern-.;  morning in 18G6 he was found dead in:'7  bed in his chambers iu the Temple/and  in his right hand was clasped a minia- .  .  ture of the lady of the "Springtime." "\  An Indian Rajah was walking through',-  the Academy rooms-during "the exhibi'-.  tion of 1842 when he", was attracted by" ,  a painting of "Perseus and A'ndrome-*.  da."

Within half an-hour the-girl,' ae-Jy'-^y  tl  hi the same magazine Dr. Havclock Ellis gives his views  on what emancipation will mean to marriage and maternity. Dr. Ellis has written many works on kindred sub-"  jects, sueh as "Sexual Selection in Man." Sex in Relation  to Society." and "Studies in thc Psychology of S'ex."  He says: "Any reform in the sphere of the relations of  the sexes must come about slowly, especially in England,  where we find an extreme prudery in discussing such questions, for without discussion, no healthy public opinion can  be -crcatcd,--and- no-reform effected.- -Hence,-perhaps,"' our  reluctance .to make even the most obviously beneficial  changes. Such changes as we may expect can only be tho  outcome of forces already at work. There are at least two  such forces: (1) the Woman .Movement in its successive  phases, and (2) thc protective movement of social reform,  inevitably leading to eugenic measures. Thc woman movement began as a claim for general human rights, and now  that these are being conceded it is becoming more and more  a movement for specific womanly rights, culminating in  motherhood and the guardianship of the child. Perhaps  this will result in some form of insurance of maternity  (already established in some parts of Germany), securing  the economic position of mothers. The child represents thc  race, and we arc thus brought up to tho cugeiiic movement.  The immense expenditure of energy and money to which the  fit are put today in order to provide for (and indirectly to  a?9ist the production of) the unfit, is compelling ns to realize  that the control of human production has become a matter  of life and death to modern democracies. Hence wc have  the movement, gaining favor in England, for the sterilisation of the definitely unfit, a promising method which (as  in Switzerland) can be effectively carried out on voluntary  lines. It is probable that the eugenic movement will manifest itself primarily in the realization of personal responsibility, and by inducements placed ou the production of  superior children (not on the indiscriminate production of  children), and only secondarily by legislation."  "Marriage, however, is becoming more difficult, and. it  is realized that this difficulty must be compensated by making divorce easier. Wc may reasonably expect that before  long in England (as already in most progressive lands),  husbands and wives will be made equal before the law, and  that various additional causes for divorce will be recognized.  At the present day the Japanese Code probably represents  the high-water mark of progress. In England, however, the  introduction of divorce by mutual- consent, with whatever  safeguards, is still remote.'

He reports work on   the   Mara ball being  pushed   satisfactorily,   and  the  building under rooof this week.     The finishing work will   not take long,  and  it is the intention of the Mara Musical  &    Athletic   Association to open  the Hall on thc evening of Sept." 27th  by giving a   grand   ball, tickets for  which   will    lie   $2.50.     The proceeds  from the   dance   will   be devoted to  paying   ofl   the   balance   on the ball  construction    account.      The  completion of this hall marks a distinct advance in  the history of Mara.   It is  a monument   to    the public spirit of  Mara's citizens,    and a tangible evidence of   their   sincerity in  the  wish  so often   expressed   that they might  have    a   public   building   sufficiently  large and comfortable to invite their  friends  of thc Enderby-Mara district  to come to and enjoy their hospitality.     They are    preparing to royally  entertain their friends-on the evening  of thc 27th.    Supper on this occasion  will be served    at   the Hines' Hotel,  which is adjacent to the hall.  held at Vancouver a few days ago,  when it was alleged that American  competitors have taken advantage of  the absence of a duty on rough lumber to sell thousands of carloads of  dressed lumber in the prairie markets  without paying' the duty as required  by thc Canadian customs tariff.  Customs officers, it was alleged, overlook the improper classification of  imported dressed lumber and allegedly continue to wink at the devious  methods declared to be in vogue. A  strong protest will be sent to Ottawa  by thc lumbermen.

Said  Mr. Caswell to-day: "There is strong  opposition to the   pact in the cities  where they    think   it will take trade  away from them and send it to cities  on  this   side   of.  the    line.   I found  strong sentiment against the pact in  Winnipeg,  Regina,  Saskatoon, Prince  Albert and Edmonton, and from what  we  read about    the   fight in  eastern  Canada I should not be surprised to  sec the pact defeated."

A Reasonable Inference.  A little girl's papa had been  very ill with appendicitis and had  lain for many days in the darkened room after the doctors, had  come and removed his appendix.  The little girl had been told to be  very quiet and very good, vvith  the promise that she should go in  to see her papa at the earliest  possible moment. At last she  was permitted a brief interview.  She stood perfectly still gazing  at her father with loving eyea  Mt.when.the_nurse ..came,to,take.  her away she held back a moment.  "Havn't I  been   very  quiet,  papa?"  "Yes" whispered the fond parent.  ' 'And havn't I been very good ?"  Her father admitted it.  "Then   wont  you  do  me   a  favor/ - papa ?'' ���������������������������  "Certainly.   What   is   it   my  child?"  "Let me see the baby."  Mod  ern  Pha  nsees  Down in Toronto there is an  organization known as the Lord's  Day Alliance. By some means  or other that Divine organization  has had it tipped off to it that  Divine Providence does not approve of ice cream and sdoa  water being consumed on Sunday.  The Alliance has also been advised'that the Lord does not approve of cheap excursions on  Sunday either upon the. water or  upon the land that is riot under  the water. So being a bunch of  meddlers and having the time to  give "to. the job, they have hoodwinked"'the lawmakers of the  Dominion .and the administrators  thereof in Ontario, into prohibiting the sale of ice cream and soda  water on Sunday land the running  of excursions upon the. holy Sabbath.  Such class legislation promoted  by-hypocritical prigs has earned  for Toronto the derisive epithet,,  "Toronto the good"���������������������������and serves  her blooming well right for tolerating such a bunch of meddling  Pecksniffs'in her midst���������������������������Bruce,  in Saturday Sunset.
