A., of Peachland  the author of the Okanagan novel,  -"Is It Just?" will visit Enderby this  week to introduce her book to the  notice of our citizens. The book has  received very favorable comment'  from those who have read it. It  is filled with human interest, reciting  as it does the trials and misfortunes  of a Manitoba family, who, having  sold their prairie home, move to the  Okanagan to go into the fruit-grow-  THE SPINSTERS' RETURN  The Spinsters celebrated their return to Enderby last Monday evening  in the Opera House. They told an  overjoyed public how' they captivated  stray millionaires and other man animals in the far-off Klondyke,'and incidentally they explained the mystcryv  of mysteries���������������������������the way to a spinster's  heart. - It. was all jso delightfully  odd and capricious the audience enjoyed two hours of hearty laughing,  and carried away glad hearts.  The winsome characters with- foul  names and" hyphenated- experience  were all admirably assumed.'- Special  mention should, be made of the excellent _work by Mrs. F. Prince las Mrs.  Samanthy Jane Allen Nojoqui "Ma-  tilija Mallaprop.-'Also "that* of Miss  Alden,. as the little Dutch maiden who  had-married and .was'-henceforth willing to 'remain a member', of ^the .spinster sisterhood.

Mr. Taylor as Professor Dinklcspiel  and���������������������������Mr. Schmidt in his winsome un-  gainliness and automobub'ble stunt,'  and Mr. Milt Stevens, as,the professor's hypnotic, subject, each in his  own way afforded a barrel" of fun for  the" audience. All of the, characters  were delightfully taken," but these  were particularly amusing.  The entertainment was given in aid  of the Vicarage building fund of the  St. George church^ .The receipts were  $133. , After the expenses are paid it  will leave something over $100 to aid  in the purpose of the fund. '**    <  MASQUERADE AT MARA  THE  NEW  SCHOOL  SITE  It is understood "that the Board of  -School���������������������������Trustees���������������������������haveTselectediTrsHar  suitable site for the $50,000 school to  be erected in En'derby, three acres in  the Flewwelling addition, west of the  railroad, and formerly known as the  .Forbes home, now the property of S.  Poison. Thc land is high and dry  ancl well drained, and the price at  which it can    be   bought is $600 per  acre, It is on_the_main road, facing.  the railr/oad, and is less than ten  minutes' walk from the main business  street. It is in the direction in  which the town is growing, and  would afford an admirable site for a  school building such as is contemplated. The- only objection that  has been raised to the site, is that it  is situated on the jther side of the  railway track, and the school children would have to cross the track to  get to it. This is hardly a serious  objection, and the THembers of the  Board feel that they have done the  best they could for the city is making  the selection. With this object an  option has been taken on the property.  Mara citizens always are prepared  to entertain well at any'of their concert, and social affairs, but when it is  a dance, and a masquerade dance at  that���������������������������well, they make things "go"  most merrily.  At .the masquerade ball held there  last Friday evening, the Mara hall'  was crowded .to the doors.~ There  were 180 guests present, including 45  from Enderby. The costumes worn  were excellent,- few indeed that were  not of the-highest rank, and the floor  and music -provided all that was necessary "toxmake~the affair one of the  tig successes of'the district. Every  Enderbyite .felt well repaid for the  long drive to and from Mara: and it  is not'to be .envied,-a 12 or 14- mile'  drive'home "thc morning" after;" cold  and. weary, with .the waking day and  its cruel realities nipping at one's  heels: But all this -was forgotten in  the enjoyment of the occasion.  Tt was impossible to get the* names  of- the "owners'.of..the .many excellent  costumes, for .the- reason_that they'  did not'wish publication* in'view-', of  the"'probability 'ofJJtheir wishing to  appear, again" in'the same character."  but'lhere are the prize winners: - . -  _Miss Airth, of Enderby, as "Night',,  Mr. E. Bennett of 'Mara, as an Indian Chief, and (for.the most comic  costume) Mr. W. Ahier of Mara, as  "Cassey Jones.". .7  The judges 'were:   Mrs.  George,  of  Grindrod,    Mrs.    J.  ��������������������������� Robertson  and  Mrs. Edwards and   Mr. B. Green, of  Mara, and Mr. A. Fulton, of Enderby  Supper was served just before mid-,  night,    and,     though   many    "more  guests were    in- attendance than the  refreshment committee prepared  for,  there was a bounteous supply for all'  and enough for the waiters.  The sum of $102 was taken in at  the door. The tickets were $1.50 for  dancers in fancy, dress, and 50c for  spectators; ladies in both cases being  .admittecLfree r������������������������������������������������������, ~ r-==  The music, which was highly commended, was provided by Messrs. C.  Rosoman and A.   O. Holland.     The  Legislative Business of Past Week; -_k  ,   Estimates and Railway Bill Delayed,  . It was anticipated" that Premier  McBride would bring down a bill incorporating his new railway policy  on Tuesday, but he- failed to ''do so,  and the features of this interesting,  document are still unknown-to the  press gallery. The estimates were  also looked for in time for this weekly news letter, but they have not yet  been presented to the house.  - The^ outstanding feature of the past  week in parliament has been the full  report presented by. the Prime Minister of the recent mission to Ottawa  and the crystalization of its results  in a telegram to Hon.

As a matter of  convenience let  call   myself   Carlelon.     1 've   no   de;  to make public my life for the sake  notoriety.     -My   only   idea   in   writ  these personal  they may help  the same hole in which i found myself  mired. They are of too sacred a Harare  to share except impersonally. riven  behind the disguise of an assumed  name 1 passed some mighty uncomfortable hours a few months ago when  I sketched out for a magazine ami saw  in cold print what 17in now going to  give in full. It made me feel as though  1 had pulled down the walls' of my  house and was living my life open to  the view of the street. Por a man  whose home, means what it does to me,  there's nothing pleasant about that.  However, J received some letters following that brief article which made  the discomfort scorn worth while. My  wife ami, J read them over with something like awe. They came from Maine  and they came from' Texas; they camo  from the north, they came from the  south, until we numbered our unseen  friends by tlio hundred. Running  through theso letters was tho racking  once rondcid our own  to get out!" As wc  thom  our" throats  grew  cry  that  had  hearts���������������������������"How  read  somo  of  lumpv.  '' God  over and  As we  that  our  said   mv   wife  help   them,'  oyer again.  read others, we felt very glad  lives had been in some way  an inspiration to them. After talking  the whole matter ovor wc decided that  if it helped any to let people know  how we ourselves pulled out, why it  was our duty to do so. Por that purpose, which is tho purpose of this book..  Carleton is as good a name as any.  My people wore all honest, plodding,  middle-class   Americans.       Thoy   stuck  where  they were born, accepted their  duties as they camo, earned a respectable   living  and   died  without  having  ,.mo'ney    enough    left to  make a will  t'worth  while.    They were all privates  :-in .the ranks.    But they were the best'  type    of    private���������������������������honest,    intelligent,  and loyal unto death.   Thoy wore-faithful  to  their, families  and  unswerving  in   their   duty  to  their   country.    The  .records  of   their  lives  aren't  interesting, but they arc as-open as daylight.  M5' father seems to have had at first  a bit more ambition stirring within him  than his ancestors.    lie started in thc  lumber business for himself iu a small  way, but Avith the first call for troops  sold out and enlisted.   He did not distinguish himself, but he fought in more  battles thau many a man who came out  a  captain.    Hc  didn't   quit  until  the  war was over.    Then he crawled back  home   subdued and   sick.    He  refused  ever to draw a pension because he felt  it-was as much a man's duty to fight  for .his  country  as for  his  wife.    He  secured a position as head clerk and  confidential man with an old established lumber firm and here he stuck thc  rest of hia life.    He  earned a  decent  living, and in the course of time mar-  Tied and occupied a comfortable home.  My mother died when J   was ten, and  after that father sold his house and wc  boarded.    H was a dreary enough life  for both of us.   Mother was thc sort of  so thin was because he did away with  his noon meal.    It makes,,my blood boil  now  when  1  remember wlioie the fruit  of this self-sacrifice went.    I   wouldn't  recall  it  here except as a humble tribute to his memory.  One night I  camo back to 'the room  iand though it was not yet dark 1 was  | surprised    to   see   a   cra'ck   of   yellow  light,   creeping   out   from   beneath   tho  sill.    Suspecting something was wrong,  J   pushed  open   the  door  and saw  my  father seated by the lump with a pair  of trousers 1  had worn when a kid in  his hands.    His head was bent and  he  was trying to sew.    J  went to his side  and  asked  him  what tho  trouble  was.  lie looked up but ho didn't know inc.  lie never knew me again,    lie died  a ,  few   days   afterwards.     J   found   then  'that he had invested'all his savings iu  'a wild-cat  mining scheme.    They  had  been swept away.  So at eighteen I Avas left alone with  the only capital that succeeding generations of my family over inherited���������������������������  a common school education and a big,  sound physique. My father's tr.igic  death waa a heavy blow, but the mere  fact that ] was thrown on my own .resources did not dishearten me. In fact  the. prospect rather roused me. I had  soaked iu thc humdrum atmosphere of  the boarding houso so long that thc  idea of having to earn niy own living  fame rather as an adventure. While  dependent on my father, I had boen  chained to this oue room and this one  city, but now J felt as though thc  whole wide world had suddenly been  opened up to me. 1 had no particular  ambition beyond earning a comfortable  j o���������������������������l _-v-gs=1i eJ^=wliol<wliffi=  in.  ���������������������������n.ot-he-r���������������������������w!  caring for her men folks so that her  going left us as helpless as babies, For  a long while we didn't even know when  to change our stockings. But obeying  the family tradition, father accepted  his lot stoically and as final. No one  in our family ever married twice. With  the death of tho wife and mother the  homo ceased and that was the end of  it.  1 remember my father with some  "pride." ire" was- a Mall,-old-fashioned  looking man, with a great deal of quiet  dignity. 1 camo to know him much  better in the next, few years after  mother died than ever before, for avc  lived together in one room and had  feAv friends. 1 can see him now sitting  by a small kerosene lamp after J had  gone to bed clumsily trying lo mend  some rent in my clothes. I thought it  an odd occupation for a man, but I  know now what ho was about. J think  his love for my mother must have boon  deep, for hc talked to -mo a great deal  of her and seemed much more concerned  about my future on her account than  on cither his own or mine  Avas she���������������������������she was a woman of some  spirit���������������������������who persuaded him to consider  sending me to college. This accounted  partly for the mending, although there  was some sentiment about, it too. J  think he liked to feel that hc was  carrying out her work for me oven in  such a small matter as this.  How "'much he Avas earning and how  much he saved I never knew. 1 went  to school and had all the common things  of the ordinary boy, and I don't remember that I ever asked him for any  pocket money but what he gave it to  mc. ft was towards the end of my  senior year in the high school that I  began to notice, a change in him, He  Avas at times strangely excited and at  other times strangely blue. He askod  me a great many questions about my  preference in tho matter of a college and  bade me keep well up in my studies.  He began to skimp a little, and I found  out afterwards that one reason he greAV  iving, and I Avas sure enough at  eighteen of being able to do this. If  1 chose, I could go to sea���������������������������there Avasn 't  a vessel but Avhat would take so husky  a youngster: if I Avished, I eould go  into railroading���������������������������hero again there was  a demand' for youth and brawn. I  could go into a factory and loam  manufacturing, or I eould go into an  office and learn a business. j Avas  young, 1- was strong, I was unfettered.  There is no one on earth so free as  such a young man. I could settle in  New York or Avork my way Avcst and  settle in Seattle or go north into Canada. My legs Avere stout and I could  walk if necessary. And AvhereA'er 1  Avas, I had only to stop and- offer the  use of my back and arms in return for  food and clothes. Most men feel like  this only once in their lives. Tu a'fcAv  years they become fettered again���������������������������this  time for good. >  Having   no   inclination   towards  thc  ono thing or the. other, I took the first  opportunity that  offered.    A chum  of  mine  had  entered   tho  employ  of  the  United Woollen   Company   and   seeing  another  vacancy  there in tho  clerical  department,  he  persuaded  me  to  join  him.    I. began at five dollars a Aveek.  I Avas put at Avork adding up columns  of figures that had no more . meaning  to mo than tho problems in the school  arithmetic.    But it Avasn't hard work  and  my hours  Avere short and my associates pleasant.   After a Avhile I took  a certain pride in  being part  of this  A-ast enterprise.   My chum ancl I hired'  a room' together and Ave both felt like  pretty important business men  as  avo  bought   our   paper   on   thc   car   overy  morning and A\'ent down toAvn.'  ft took close figuring to do anything  but live that first year, and yet avc  pushed our way wilh the crowd into  the nigger heavens aud saw most of the  good shows. I had never been to the  theatre before and I liked it.  Next year I received a raise of five  dollars and watched the shows from  the rear of thc first balcony. That is  tho only change the raise made that I  c_u.-rninp.nibnr._cxcept  that I" renewed  who became my wife.

'The chances are that I shall talk more  j about her than 1 did the first time.

And it's just as true to-day  las it was in the stress of the fight.  |     L avus twenty-six  when  J   met  Ruth,  land she was eighteen.   Sho came out to  | the   club   one   [Saturday   afternoon   to  Avatcli some  tenuis.    It  happened  that  1   had  Avorked   into   the  finals  of   the  tournament,   but   that    day    1   wasu't  playing   very   well.    1   was   beaten  in  the first sot, six-two.   What was Avorse  I didn't care a hang if I was.    I had  found myself fooling like this about a  lot   of   things   during   those   last   fcAV  months.   Then as 1 made ready to serve  the second set, I happened to see in thc  front row of the crowd to tho right of  the court a slight girl Avitlrblue eyes.  She Avas leaning forward looking at me  Avith her mouth tense and her fists tight  closed.    SomohoAV I  had an   idea that  she wanted me to Avm.    I don't know.  Avhy, because I was sure I'd never seen  her before; but I thought that perhaps  sho had bet a pair of gloves or a box  of candy on  me.    If she had, I mado  up my mind that she'd  g-.t  Avhich" stairs', led to the next floor. To  the right there was a large room separated by folding doors with another  'good-sized room next to it,Which would  naturally be used as a dining-room. In  the rear of this was the kitchen and  besides the door there was a slide  through which to pass the food. Upstairs there were four big rooms  stretching the whole width of the house.  x\bovo these there was a servant's  room. The whole house was prettily  finished, and in the two rooms downstairs there were fireplaces which took  my eye. although they weren't bigger  thai) coal hods.

At any rate, J. beat my man.  After the game J found someone to  introduce mo to her, and from that  moment on there avus nothing else oi  fo great consequence in my life. 1  learned all about hor in thc course of  tho next 1'oav weeks. Her family, too,  was distinctly middle-class, in the sense  that none of them had ewer done anything' to distinguish themselves cither  for good or bad. Hor parents lived on  a small Noav Hampshire farm and she  had just beon graduated from the village academy'ancl had come to town to  visit her aunt. Tho latter Avas a tall,  lean Avoman, who, after the death of  her husband had been forced to keep  lodgers to eke out a living. Ruth  shoAvcd me pictures of her mother and  father, and they might have been relatives "of mine as far as looks Avent.  The, father had caught an expression  from thc granite hills which most NeAv  England farmers get���������������������������a rugged, strained look; the mother Avas loan' and kind  and worried. I 'met them later and  Jiked them.. *,,    - ' ,-  Ruth avus such a woman as my  mother would have taken to; clear and  laughing on the surface, but.Avith great  depths hidden among-the golden shallows. Her experience had all been  among the meadows and mountains, so  that she Avas simple and direct ancl  fearless in her thoughts and acts. You  never had to wonder what she meant  Avhen she spoke, and Avhen you came to  know her you didn't even have to avou-  der Avhat she was dreaming about. And  yot sho aams nover the same because she  was always groAving.  Avoke  But tho thing that  me up most of all from the first  day I met her Avas the interest she took  iu everyone and everything. A fclloAV  could not bore Ruth if he tried. She  Avould have tlie time of her life sitting  on a bench in tho park or walking down  thc street or just staring out the Avin-  (Ioav  of  her  aunt's  front  room.    And  my stock of clothes. Tlie only thing  I.''m sure of is that at tho end of the  second yoar I didn't havo anything left  over.  This  is  true  of the  next  six years.  My   salary   Avas   advanced  steadily   to  twenty dollars, and at that time it took  just twenty dollars a week for ine to live.  1 Avasn't extravagant and I Avasn't dissipated, but every raise found a hcav  dcinniid.      .It   seemed   to   Avork   automatically.-  -Von-might-almost say-that  our salaries Avero not raised at all, but  that we were promoted from a ten dollar  plane   of  life   to   a   fifteen   dollar  plane and then to a twenty.    And avc  all went together���������������������������that is the men Avho  started together.    Each advance meant  unconsciously   tho   wearing   of    better  clothes, rooming al better houses, ont  ing at better restaurants, smoking better tobacco, and moro frequent amusements.     This   left   us   bettor   satisfied  of course, but after all  it left us just  where   wo   began.     Life   didn't   mean  much to any of us at this time, and if  wo   were  inclined   to  look  ahead  why  I think it | there were the big salaried jobs before  us to dream about.   But even if a man  had been forehanded  and of a saving  nature,   he   couldn't   have   done   much  -without  sacrificing  the    only    friends  most  of  us  had���������������������������his  office  associates.  For   instance���������������������������to  save   five   dollars  a  week at this time T���������������������������avouUI have had to  drop back into the fifteen dollars a Aveek  croAvd and I'd have been as much out  of place  there as a boy dropped into  a lower grade at school.    1  remember  that when   J  was  other   live  dollars  solved to put that  weekly.    But at this point  thc  all joined a small country  club  that street looked like Sunday afternoon all the Aveek loug.  J. began to do some figuring Avhen 'I  was alone, but there wasn't.much satisfaction in it. T. had thc clothes in  -jHy.roo.nl, a good collection of pjpes,  and ten dollars of my Jast" weclf'irsalT"  last" wcck's  A man  couldn't get married  on  oven   to   a   girl   like   Ruth,   aa-Iio  finally advanced a.n-  I half-heartedly ro-  amouiit in the bank  crowd  and I  ind either to follow or drop out of their  lives. Of course, in looking back I can  seo where- I. might have done differently, but T wasn 't looking back then-  nut very far ahead either If it would  have prevented my joining the country  club I 'in glad  I didn't.  It was out thero that I mot thc girl  ary.  that  wouldn 't Avant much. I cut down here  and there, but I naturally wanted to  appear avcJI before Ruth, and so thc  savings Avont into hoav ties and shoes.  l'n this way I fretted along for a few  months, until 1. screwed my' courage up  to ask for another raise. Those Avere  prosperous days for the United Woollen  and everyone from thc.president to.the  office boy av.'is in good humor, I went  to Morse, head of the department, and  told liiin frankly that I. Avished to get  married and needed more money. That  wasn't ii business reason for an increase, but thoso of us who had AA'orkcd  there some years had come to feel liko  one of the family, and it Avasn't unusual for thc company to raise a man  at nidi a timo. He said he'd seo Avhat  he could do about it, and when J opened my pay envelope the next Aveek ]  found an extra five in it.  I. went direct from the office to Ruth  and asked her to marry mo. She didn't  hang her head nor stammer, but sho  looked mo straight in tho eyes a moment longer than usual and answered:  "All  right,  Billy."  "Then let's go out this afternoon  and see about getting a house," I said.  I don't think a Carleton ever boarded Avhen first married. To mo it  wouldn't havo seemed like getting married. I knoAv a suburb whore some of  the men I hod mot at the country club  lived and Ave Avent out tliere. Tt Avas  a beautiful June "day and everything  looked clean and fresh. Wo found a  little house of eight rooms that we  know avc wanted as soon as Ave saw it.  ft was one of a group of ten or fifteen  that Avere all very much alike. Thero  was a piazza on the front and a little  bit of laAVii that looked as though it  had boon squeezed in afterwards. Tn  the rear thore Avas another strip of land  where avo thought aatc might raise some  garden stuff if we put it in boxes. The  house  itself  had  a  front  hall  out   of  HOW THE CHINESE RISING BEGAN  Japanese newspapers throw much interesting light, upon the revolutionary  uprising- in China. This is not surprising Avhen it is considered that such  influential journals as the Jiji (Tokyo),  the Asahi (Tokyo), the Maiuichi (Osaka), and the Asahi (Osaka) maintain in  almost every important city in China  special correspondents avcII versed in  the Chinese dialects and thoroughly conversant Avith affairs in tho Celestial  I'hnpirc. According to the Jiji the present rebellion avus started Iavo years  earlier than was originally planned by  such revolutionary leaders as Sun Yat-  sen and Whang Hsin. It Avas the plan  ot Dr. Sun and his associates, Ave are  told, to_infuse revolutionary ideas into  all tho .divisions of thc imperial army  in two yoars from now/ and then over-  throAV the Manchu dynasty by "a bold  coup.   But:  "An untoward incident precipitated  the outbreak of the rebellion much  ahead of thc prescribed time. In the  afternoon of October 9th, a Chinese revolutionist, Avhile engaged in the manufacture of infernal machines ina building in the Russian 'settlement' in Hankow, let one of the bombs explode by  mishap. Thc house Avas instantly searched by thc poliee, and avus found to be  the rendezvous of the terrorists. There  Avere also unearthed the flag of the  revolution, tho list of revolutionists,  and many documents containing much  information concerning the activities of  the anti-Manc.hu agitators. The revolutionists, seeing that their secrets  Avere discovered, Avould not await thc  inevitable arrest and prosecution which  Avere to bo expected, but lost no time  in inducing the imperial troops at Wuchang to join them in a revolt. The  soldiers, among whom the revolutionists  had been secretly working this many  a year, and Avho at thc time had particular grievances to complain of on account of peculation practised by an  officer,-readily responded to the call of  thc revolutionists."  Li Yuen-hucn,- before -accepting the  leadership.of thc -revolutionary.forces,  was a major-general "and" commanded  the Mixed -Brigade at Wuchang under  General Chang Piu, who has boen disgraced by the court for having deserted  his post i'or fear of his mutinied soldiers. In an "intimate delineation of  this revolutionary commander, the Osaka Maiuichi says:  "Li is about forty-eight years of  age. Formerly.a naval officer, hc avus  at the time of the Chino-Japancsc War  on board of the Chinese cruiser Chi-  yuan,Avhich Avas captured by tho Japanese off Cjicmulpo. Several years later  Li entered tho army as a caA'alry officer,  and Avas sent to Japan to study the  Japanese methods of military training  and stratcg)r. Unlike most Chinese officers, who are eager to line their pockets at the expense of thc private soldier, Li is noted i'or his honesty and  uprightness, and is deeply respected  by his men."  In an interview Avith the Hankow correspondent of the Yorodzu (Tokyo), Li  Yncn-huou confidently declared that hc  would haA'c no difficulty in converting  into revolutionists all the imperial  troops AA'hich Avere being sent from thc  north against the insurgent forces. "For  o many pieces-  of blank paper, for thoy have no trust  in the government. Apart from such  considerations, the people of Szechuen  had particular reason to bo indignant.  When the government nationalized the  railways in Honan and Canton, it paid  cash outright, fearing that any other  course would stir tlie ire of the people,  whose inflammable temper is proverbial.  But in the case of Szechuen the government acted in the most arbitrary  manner, knoAving that the people there  were meek and generally well-to-do.  Thc outbursts of public indignation'that  fonowed naturally furnished a golden  opportunity for the revolutionists to  stir up rebellion throughout the entire  Vung-tso region."  MADAME ALB ANTS REMINISCENCES  A few years ago the editor of a  leading Knglish magazine Avrote to a  famous singer and asked her fo tell him  about, her childhood days and hor dolls.  The reply cainc back, "������������������ never had a  doll."

That man is, wc arc told, Whang Hsin,  avIio is jn tlie most intimate relations  and" in "constant -communication- Avith  Dr. Sun Yat-sen. Dr. Sun is described  as a man of scholarly inclination ancl  of philosophical temperament, but Whan  is a man of action, endoAved with thc  peculiar ability of executing plans conceived by his colleagues.* As a matter  of fact, tho Declaration of Secession  recently issued by thc revolutionists at  Hankow is, the Jiji recalls, nothing but  (ho reproduction of a section of the  "Programme of Revolution," Avhich  was drafted as early as .1907, by Dr.  Sun and Whang Hsin at Hanoi, French  I ado-China.  Tho Peking government, in a vain  effort to quiet tho rebels, deposed Shong  Iluan-huai, minister of communications,  as hc Avas directly responsible for the  nationalization of the railways, Avhich  avus one of tho causes of the uprising.  "Tho nationalization scheme, as far as  Szechuen avus concerned, is decidedly  unjust," remarks a Avriter in tho Jiji,  adding:  "The people of that province had organized a joint-stock company with a  capital of $S,000.000 to build a raihvay.  'Noav the Posing government, in ordering the dissolution of thc company as  a necessary step toward tho nationalization of tho raiHvays, conferred upon  tho stockholders, Avho include practically all tho landowners in Szechuen,  bonds only to the amount of $5,350,000,  of which only $2,050,000 avus to boar  any interest.

Through tho character of the  vVclshman there runs a strong strain of  poetry and mysticism; ho feels, with a  special urgency, the appeal of the unseen. From his- childhood he has  breathed in  the religious fervor of his  eighties  that    the Young  Movement, of which Tom Ellis was a  leader, had  its  rise.  "Lastly, the Welsh ministry is a  ministry of great preachers. It inherits groat traditions. It remembers  Howell Harris, Daniel ftowlamls, John  Elias, Williams of Worn,, Christmas  Evans. It knows that the first business of the preacher is to preach. And  so it expresses itself, not only in the  pulpit in tho voice of the 'hawyl,' but  at the vast preaching meetings whicU  are still held, as they wore hold in  Rowland's day, wilh overy circumstance of fervor and over periods of  many hours.  "The influence which0 Mr. Lloyd  George wields in Wales is not, perhaps,  fully understood. It is true that he  attracts the admiration and enthusiasm  which arc the duo of the national loader.      So, however, ' did  Gladstone    in  England  and Pariicll in Ireland,     be  tween thc popular attitude - towards  these twain and that towards Mr.  Lloyd George thero is this difference,'  that Gladstone and Parncll, loved  though they wore by the common peo:  pie, were ..regarded not only with affection, but with a certain element/of  awe. They were felt to stand upon  another plan than that of their followers. There is very little of this  feeling among the men -who follow'  Lloyd  George.  "Mr. Lloyd George has an enormous  moral and political influence in Wales.  But he exercises, in a curious  an influence of quite another kind... j  only is he molding Welsh opinion; ho  is oven a fleeting Welsh psychology.  The minor note in Welsh character has  been observed.' But' the emergence  of a Welshman, in every sense, typical  of his countrymen, upon the.platform  of world history, has quickened tho  Welsh pulse, and widened the' Welsh  outlook."  experiments, simple washing in lukewarm water is insufficient to remove  bacteria, the adequate uso of hot water  should be insisted upon for all eating  and drinking utensils used by the public.  ,fJt is unfortunate that so many of  our boards of health arc hampered by  lack of authority and lack of funds in  tho carrying out of needed reforms, and  that we must be perhaps decades, if not  centuries, in entering the promised laud  of more sanitary living."

He  is plainly a son   of the people,      In  deed,  every man who has moved the  mind of Wales during the past two  hundrod-years was- born -poor Moreover, with the exception of Mr. Lloyd  George, nearly every Welshman who  wields an influence over li is people has  remained poor. Any obscure Ihiglish-  man of modest prosperity going daily  to the city and living in a $300 house,  could have bought up most of the grrnt  Welshmen of (he past. They had il-  ways lo l?eop their wants humble.  J'Yoni inspiring thoir people thoy had  to face fin empty larder. But poor,  those men wore not despised.

For the danger of infection from'this  source was noted" at.least 350 years ago",  and rjossibly before that time.    And yet  the cup that may'iufcct.is still far from  abolished.    We are reminded that:.    ' ,  "In tbo "middle'of* the sixteenth-sen-'  tury avprofessor of theology in Strassburg  insisted .upon   having   individual  communion cups, and, during a plague  in luG-i, his demand"was"-enforced.    In  the eighteenth century, Jiletzgar, llul'e-  land, and others pointed out very plainly the dangers from infection, especially  from syphilis, from the'use ol'a common  eiip, and also from promiscuous kissing.  Yet, except among those whoso esthetic  sense is  offended  by  thc  custom,  the  public.drJnking-vcssel has survived.'  it  takes- something  more  than  the   mere  statements "of truths, oven with raised  voice', to shake mankind out of age-old  ruts, aud only the discovery by actual  experiment  within  the  last, ten   years  that as many as 2S,000 bacteria may be  deposited   ou  a  drinking-glass  by   one  contact, has been able, to really move  us toward obeying the preaching which  has been heard i'or hundreds of yems.  "As typical  of a half-way stage  of  .pxogressia t=\vh i ah=\va=sco!n=fco=h :we=ii  rived in the process of  weaning from  the common cup, there is on the public  square   of   one   of   our   large   cities   a  pump with chained tin cup, and beside  it  a  bubbling fountain  with   porcelain  mouthpiece.   The thirsty can take their  choice as to whether they will  imbibe  in the old or new fashion.    It is needless to say that, from habit alone, lhc  fountain   is   kissed   by  far  fewer   lips  l'l.,l,!Li'l������������������ 'Ji^'JiiL!!0'] _������������������l'Ll'._./l]?hy<,.cj.i_tj[c  two there is possibly not so groat choice  as wo might suppose, for in cither case  tho lips may touch thc container of  fluid, and it has boon found that glasses  washed in cold or even lukewarm water  and wiped with a sterile towel still havo  many bacteria clinging to them. If  there were some contrivance by which  the lips could touch the water only we  would have an ideal dispenser.  "As shown by the example previously  noted, tho public i.s no more ready for  purely voluntary acceptance of hygienic  methods of drinking than it is for willing obedience to rule of quarantine.  The groat majority of mankind must bo  educated by force into hygienic living.  If tho doing away with tho public  drinking or common communion cup is  to como about, it must bo by force'of  law. It is a good sign that the city of  New York has set an example in the abolition of the public cup, and that in lhe  public schools each child is to have his  own utensil for drinking purposes. This  movement will have its effect upon other  cities, which, liko sheep, will be apt to  follow the load of the metropolis, whoro  ofhciwirc their movements in such direction  would havo boon  long dclayel.  "Of equal or greater importance with  tho drinking-cup is tne sanitary condition of tumblers, spoons, and other utensils at soda-fountains and in restaurants.

Alexander, of Hawthorne,  after twelve years'   suffering,  tells  ��������������������������� the public what they "are doing  for her   '  Hawthorne, Ont., ��������������������������� - (Special).���������������������������  "There is nothing like Dodd's Kidney  Pills for a sore back." That is the  statement of Mrs. T. G. Alexander of  this place, and all her neighbors agree  that she should know. "I suffered for  twelve years from a pain in my back,  Rheumatism and Heart Disease,'-' Mrs.  Alexander continues. "I was always  tired and nervous and my sleep was  broken and unrefrcshing.-' Since taking  Dodd's Kidney Pills i am, feeling so  much better that I feel I must say.a  good word for them.

Cliff and GouritoSU..  .ENDEKBV  A delegation from the southern end  of the Valley is in Victoria this week  with the object of inducing the Government to open the question of redistribution far enough to, admit of  thc Okanagan being given two repre-  I sentatives   at   large.     While we are  ! not in a position    to know the Gov-  i  : ernment's mind on this question, ancl  j would not   pretend   to say what the  ! effect of such a delegation on such a  ! mission will be,  we believe the Gov-  \ ernment has   expressed its determin-  iation sufficiently   strong on the mat-  iter of redistribution   to warrant the  ; belief that the mission of the delegation will be of no avail.  |    There is no question as to the feeling of the electors   of the Okanagan  in the matter of additional representation.   This   feeling    has    been   expressed    often   enough,    through the  Boards of Trade and otherwise.   But  when the question    of   two members  being elected    at. large was brought  up in the Associated Board meetings,  last year and the year before, it was  voted   down.   This   is  significant.   It  indicates that,   while the district as  a whole feels that   additional representation is certainly due the Okanagan, we do not want these members  elected at large,  The diverse conditions existing in  the Okanagan make it imperitive  that the s district shall be divided  when this additional representation is  given. We believe the Government  ministers realize this, and we do not  anticipate any steps,will be taken in  this direction until the census returns have been made and the Government can go into the question fully conversant with all the details in  connection therewith."  To ask for an , additional member  at large, without dividing the district is jumping out of the frying.pan  into the fire. We-believe the Okanagan electorial district is entitled to  three representatives in the local  legislature, and we believe the Government, will see to it that such a  division is made when the question  of redistribution is finally taken up.  We foresee mischief growing out of  two delegates at large, and believe  the interests of all sections of the  district would be better looked after  with only Donc delegate at large in  the Government than if we had two  delegates at large.   -  In other words, , we do not believe  the opinion of the electorate as  expressed through the Associated  Boards of Trade has changed on this  question, and if the Government  should ,=,th ough_____.weJ^do^not^tlunj_L__it  will, grant the request of the eleventh-hour delegation for an additional representative at large, it  would be doing something contrary  to the expressed wish of the electorate. While thc ministerial duties of  the Hon. Price Ellison are no doubt  arranged to adjudicate on the rights  on each particular   stream,  of which  tliere   are   several   thousand.     It is  expected that within two months of  the passage   of   federal confirmatory  legislation, the Board will be actively engaged in the hearing of claims.  The. promptitude   displayed   in this  matter assuredly will bring gladness  to thc hearts of thc many Belt lands  residents who during years past have  been waiting   and hoping for an adjustment of thc complicated matters  relating   to   water    records and the  utilization    of     the     multitude     of  streams within the ten thousand odd  square miles    of   Railway Belt territory, for   irrigation,    mining and industrial purposes.  LOCAL OPTION,NOT GRANTED  Coincident with the introduction of  the amending , Liquor Act bill in the  local legislature this week by the At-d,  torney General, particulars of which  are given   on   another page, a large  and  influential   deputation  representative   of   the   B. C.   Local     Option  League was granted an interview by  the full   Executive,   renewing the request that. ,was   made   last year for  the bestowal upon   every community  of the ful^   control of liquor and li,  cense matters within its borders.   To  these visitors it was pointed out how  far the present   law   is going in the  promotion    of   temperance; how systematic   and    organized and uniform  policy and control would be impossible under the   plan   proposed by the  League.      The    customary assurance  that    careful    consideration   and attention would'be given the represen-.  tations advanced, judgment being reserved, was not the answer given this  delegation.     Instead, the Premier informed them at once, courteously but  firmly, that, representing all various  interests in the   community, and because it believed in the more practically beneficial character of the present "high   license   and strict regulation" plan, the Government does not  at present   contemplate the granting  of local option as requested..

SEND  YOUR   I  Interesting Meeting of Road Men  . /, ���������������������������      in Session at Victoria this Week  A large number of- men interested in road making .will meet  in Victoria on February,22 and 23,  the date of a convention called  by Hon.-Thomas Taylor, minister  of public works, for'.the discus^  .sion of matters affecting the con-  . struction - vand. maintenance; of  .roads in British Columbia.   /    7  Deputy Minister * of -Public  Works, W. W. Foster, has extended to W. J. Kerr, president  of the Canadian High way. Association, and to P., W. Luce, the  secretary, a'cordial invitation to  attend these meetings. As representing the - Canadian Highway  Assocation/, Mr. ^ Kerr will have  something interesting to. say to  the delegates."     .     ;  The minister of public works  and his colleagues have been at  considerable pains to ��������������������������� secure  speakers who will deal with  stated branches of road' building  and they have succeeded in  arranging for the attendance of  men who have made their mark  in modern road building. J. P;  =Eord=wilLdeal=withlthe-subject  of "Road Location'-', while "Material for Road Construction"  will be the subject treated by  Duncan Irvine, who will compare  the advantages and disadvantages of the different materials  which go into the building of a  road.  Supplementary,to Mr. Irvine's  remarks; "G7P. Napier ~. whTdeal  with "Notes on the Construction  of Different Types of Roads." A  paper that will be of particular  interest to the superintendents is  being prepared by J. E. Griffiths,  who intends devoting; the time  alloted to him to dealing with  "The use of Modern Road-Making  Machinery." Mr. Griffiths will  endeavor to show that money invested in the purchase of road-  making machinery is one-of the  best investments that a district,  municipality or city can make.  Hamilton Lang, of Vernon, provincial superintendent for the  Okanagan district, has been asked  to speak on "Systematic Accounting Records for Road Superintendents," and will be ready  with papers and charts to clearly  explain his ideas on this important  subject.  Several other interesting papers  are to be read at this convention,  but probably the one most eagerly looked forward to is that by  R/H. Thompson, A.M., Ph. D.,  engineer of the city of Seattle,  who will deal with ' "Road Construction and Maintenance," and  will draw upon his fund of experience in Seattle and in other  cities,as,a;road builder.,andbver-r  seer.; y '-7  '-/,.     .    .'-;;-���������������������������..

ENDERBY APPROPRIATION  If there is a section of the province -that*has not as yet petitoned or urged by delegations the  extension of special aid to it out  of the Provincal treasury for  school or hospital purposes, the  Minister in charge of these affairs  would probably like to present it  with some souvenir typifying a  unique and isolate distinction.  Happily the requests but illustrate the rapid and substantial  growth of British Columbia and  therefore are gratifying rather  than- the���������������������������reverse,'- although  occasioning the Minister many an  anxious hour.  Another delegation interveiw-  ing the Minister with respect to  school matters recently came-  from Enderby, and was composed  of Mayor Ruttan and Mr. A.  Fulton, of the trustees' board.  They made out an excellent case  as to accomadation necessities,  and the decision has been reached  to include $25,000 in the estimates for Enderby school establishment, conditional upon the  city meeting this grant almost  dollar  for  dollar,   which  it  is  ���������������������������The NeWjYork American piib-  lishesthe following; "An agreement reached between the Cunard  Steamship Company and the  Canadian Northern Railway has  created much interest in steamship circles here,: while it has set  at restmany questions as to the  future policy of one of the most  progressive railways in the Dominion. With the completion of  its coast system, the Canadian  Northern; will be in a position to  wrest a large portion of the.trans-  continental traffic from its rival,  the C. P. R. The latter company  with its own  steamers  and  its  working agreement with the  International Mercantile Marine,  which has six steamers in the  Montreal run, had an advantage  over the Canadian Northern that  only the acquisition of a fleet  could equalize.  ' A COW BOY'S GIRL  The Cow Boy's Girl Company  will appear at the Enderby Opera  House on Saturday night, Feb.  24th. This play is a western melodrama, dealing with cattle ranching. The plot shows how Richard  Huntley (Mr. Paul Diablo) the  leader of a bunch of Mexican  half breeds, carries oh his business as a " rustler " and at the  same time endeavors also to win  the affection of Florence Curtis,  the boss (Miss Doris Gray) with  a veiw of obtaining full control  himself. Mr. Gerald Clute,' as  Frank Marole, the foreman of  the ranch suspects him from the  first and in conjunction with Doc  Rye (Mr. Johnie Pringle) and  Madge the romp (Miss Fay Norton) eventually, brings him to  earth. A considerable amount of  humor is introduced into the play  and intermingled with the serious business of the- ranch, .the  lovemaking of Doc Rye arid Miss  Arabella(Miss Carol Yann) comes  as a pleasing feature.

An Admiral's Narrow Escape  Ashore  While the adventures of the average naval oflicer occur at sea, the most  exciting of any in the life of Captain  i'Vank Helm took place several year-',  ago, when he thought himself quite  safely ashore. But then Helm is anything but an average naval oflicer. Tu  his friends the Captain is best known  us the "Admiral of the Philippine  Xavee," the propriety of which title is  Kjinowhat in doubt, for there is no  Philippine "Navee" in the first place,  and bocondly, Helm , maintains  that wero thore any such thing  in existence, he would have  none of it. What Helm really does is  to take complete chargo of navigation  in the Philippine Islands, and he does  it very well indeed. His lighthouses  alone s.ive hundreds of ships each year  \s soon as applied to a cut, j and  hc  is worthy of any insignia his  a bum, a scald, or any skin injury,  it relieves the pain and it sets up  healing, it also .prevents blood-poisoning or inflammation, it is a sure cure  too for eczema, piles, ulcers, old  wounds, bad log, ringworm, scalp sores,  festering, running sores, eruptions, cold  sores, chapped hands, etc. Us absolute  purity, alpo, makes it the ideal balm  for babies.

It happened, hc  tells us, in Pershing's famous campaign  in Mindanao, and that, says the Uap-  taiu, was in 3903.  At, that time Pershing was operating  about twenty-three miles from the coast.  1 did not get to his camp in time to join  him; in fact, T was a whole day behind,  and it looked as if I wouldn't get to see  anything at all. But Captain Fitzpat-  ricK of the Pifteeth Cavalry, who had  been loft in command of the camp, was  about to send food across the lake that  Jay between ns and the force in the field,  and 1 decided 1 would take a chance'  and go along Avith the natives who were  to work the boat.  There Avere six of them in the craft,  friendly'Moros, and when wc got the  suppiies aboard it Avas .aie 11. the afternoon. Dusic came on as ws neared Ma-  en., on the opposite bank. I could heaT  Pc'sbnig's guns going about four or  jv������������������ miles away, and that was some saris-  f.������������������i tion. a.though coineiiently witn" my  gathering in the sound camo a di.-i"ov-  ery of a lot of Moros, all armed, running  dviAvn to tho beach ahead. I way the  only Avhite man in the boat, of course,  and my companions told mo to lie down  flat in thc bottom, and when L had adjusted myself as best I could so as to  imitate bags of food they covered ,mc  Avith a sarong, 0 doth-,the natives ufo.  as a garni on 1.  As soon as avc grounded the armed  men swarmed about the boat. Some of  them sat ou tho gunwale, and 1 could  haA'e grabbed a dusky leg or tAvo, but  I had.no such-mind. 1 knew enough of  their lingo to gather what, they were  talking about, and it was by no means  inspiriting to hear thom brag about tbe  number of Americans they had killed  that morning. "In my position i Avas a  good deal cramped, but J. hardly dared  tobroathe, for I realized that if somebody lifted one corner of that sarong  that would be about all for me. In the  morning X had Avriltcn a note to Per-  shiuo" asking him to send a troop of  cavalry, ami I wondered whether my  messenger had got through.  ]t seemed I had been lying there ao  hour when shouts were heard ancl more  men came running down to the beach. I  was convinced that they were coming  after my head, and began to Avish I had  not been so enthusiastic about wishing  fo see a fight. Tliere Avas a lot of jabbering, and a.������������������ it proceeded my ears  pricked up and then T threw the sarong  oil' and got up and stretched myself, I  decided if they had to have mo .1 might  get a better chaxce standing up to take  a Moro or two along with me. T had  learned from fhe conversation that the  late arrivals wore messengers from the  Dato of Matin, whom Pershing had  whipped that morning, though as yet 1  \-no.w_L_Avas  the boat  was gone. The two in the rear still rc-  insuned, and I can tell you it. was far  from comfortable marching along there  in the gloom with two savage-looking  -Moros just a few feet behind me. When  avo reached a canal and the rear-guard  told me to cross it, 1 felt sine .1 was just  :ibout to get a blow on the-back of the  head. This impression icceived somc-  i...ng like confirmation as 1 stepped  into the ditch.  I had had an idea that tho water was  only about two feet deep, i'or it was  dark and there was no way of guessing.  1 wont iu over my head. Thc water, I  found when 1 got on my feet again, was  really only four leet deep, but, oiving  to my miscalculation, I had fallen,  which had almost thc cflcr.t of being  struck.  Whon 1 got to the other bank 1 started ahead as fast as 1 could go; for 1  saw tlie light of camp-fires. I did not  look back to see if my rear-guard was  following, but whistled as loud as .1  could. There was no answer, and fearing t.o attract a shot from a native I  dropped behind a dike. Then I crept  forward about 300 yards and dropped  again. 1 heard firing, and then T lit for  the camp as fast as J eould go, yelling  in English as I ran. The call af on  outpost for rne to stop yelling and come  ou in was grateful music. .It just happened that I had struck the side of the  camp from which they Avere jiot firing.

Por more than a century- thc  old bell, still preserved in LibertyEall,  has been a shvine for countless pilgrims  from every eorner of the civiliz*,o<l world  who havo seen the large crack running  the entire length of the bell, and unfitting it for duty. This break was always thought to have occurred while Liberty Bell Avas tolling at the funeral of  Chief Justice John Marshall, on July 8,  1835, but other "stones at odd intervals  have gone tho rounds, and this one is  the latoet.  Now, more than three-quarters of a  century: after the old bell was silenced,  conies a man who declares that, none of  the more or less accepted -versions of  how.it eame to be cracked is correct;  that his version alone is the true explanation of the incident. For more  than fifty .years,, he declares, ho has  beon reading in newspapers- and elsewhere all the, A-ariouB conflicting stories  of thc accident, but, inasmuch as his  has been an extremely busy life, hc has  never bothered his head overmuch  about them until quite recently..  Being now old, and retired from act-;  ive work he has moro leisure on his  hands; his mind dATclls more and more  on the pact, his tenacious memory, ot  whieh he is extremely proud, is prone  to take him back to early youth and  review the happenings that still sin-ad"  out, from the haze,, of yesterday.  So, when a few days ago this man  saw yet another story of how the Liberty Bell was cracked, and realized y%et  again that his memory branded it as incorrect, he hastened to protest."  "I-Avas one of those who were present and assisted in the cracking of  that bell���������������������������perhaps I am the only person  now living who was present,:; he stated.  Those words Look a Times reporter at  once to his house with' tbe request for  X fi i Ind ctail si  The mau who, he says, helped crack  the oid Liberty Bell, is Mr. Emmanuel  Joseph Rauch, of ,'5S6 West llCth  Street. He is eighty-six years old, but  doesn't look it. lu fact, so straight  is he still, so squaie and robust, that  he seems scarcely older than his son,  a man Avho has turned fifty.  And Mr. Ranch's manner of speech  is such as to justify ihe pride he takes  in his .memory. . . llis.tiilk. goes..right.  ahead, without hesitation or confusion,  Jlo never adds anything concerning  which he feels the slightest, uncertainty.  He was born at Chester, Pa., of Pennsylvania Lutch stock, on November 0,  1812.1. and removed Avith his parents to  Philadelphia whon he was seven years  old. It was throe yoars Inter���������������������������iu JS'l.'j  ���������������������������that, according Lo him, tho cradling  of the Liberty Bell occutred. That is  the year usually given as the one in  which the mishap occurred, but Mr.  Bauch i.s emphatic in hia statement that  Lhe bull was not cracked cm tbo occasion of Chief Justice Marshall's funeral. Here is his own version of the  occurrence:  "The Liberty Bell Avns cracked, as 1  remember, on Washington's birthday,  liS.'hl, and this is the Avay it was done:  "I Avas then ten yoars old. On that  day I had been sent by my mother on  au errand to a shop not far from our  home. Ou my return from it, 1 was  walking through State House Square  when I. noticed that the janitor, or  steoplekeeper, of the old Stutc Houso  building Avas beckoning    to mo.      Bin  name Avas Downing���������������������������'Major Jack,' we  ���������������������������u������������������e������������������l to call him���������������������������and he was a well-  knmvn character in Philadelphia at that  time.  " 'Come here!' he called to me and  to several boys whom ho spied in the  square. After he had corralled, six or  eight of ns���������������������������I don't remember exactly  how .many���������������������������he told us that he wanted  us to ring the Liberty Bell in honor  of Washington 'e birthday. The idea  pleased us very much���������������������������we boys Avere  not in the habit of ringing the old bell  ���������������������������and we agreed lo do it.  "Then Downing climbed into thc  steeple of the State House and tied a  rope to thc clapper of thc bell. Coming down again, ho put the end of this  rope into our hands and instructed ns  to pull with all our might, which avc  did.  '' Wc were working away, and thc bell  had Htrnek, so far as ] ean recall, ubout  ten or a dozen times, when Ave noticed  a change in the tone. We kept ring-'  ing, though, but, after a Avhile, thc  Ktocplekccper noticed tho difference,  too. Surmising that something might  be Avrong, hc told un to stop pulling  the Tope. Then he dimbod back into  the steeple, we boys following behind.  ,"On the side of thc bell that hung  toward "Walnut Street we fomid that  there was a big eraek, a foot or fifteen  inches long. JDoAvning then told us to  run along home.     We obeyed.  "What happened after that I forget  ���������������������������boy-like I didn't do'any worrying,  v-and heard no more about the cracking  of the bell until some years later. Then,  however, and many times since, I-have  read of how the bell eame to be" cracked, but never have 3 seen the version  which "J have ;pist given. '��������������������������� 1 honestly  believe it is tho eorrcet one."   .   .    .  Investigation of. what 5b known regarding tho cracking of the Liberty Bell  gives considerable plausibility to Mr.  Ranch ;b narrative. First, there is, as  has been already mentioned, confusion  as to just how the bell waa cracked.  It was the enstom to ring it on im  jwrtant occasions, notably on each re-  currjixr J\>TiTth of .Inly, bnt, according  t,o one unthority, it wan not rang on  that day after 3853. This would explain how,-if the bell was indeed erack-  cd, as Mr. Ranch maintains, on February 22, 3835, the crack was not discovered on tho .following Fourth of  July.  Coming to thtt theory that the bell  *>-as craeked whiJe toiling for tho i'oneral  of Chief Justice Marshall, we are reminded that: ^  "While tolling'' ie an ambiguous  phrase. Is it not possible, probable  even, that, as stroke after stroke of the  clapper tnuot-Q lhe side of the bell, tl<ose  who heard detected something, wrong  in the sound, exaetiy an,did J>owning  and his youthful helper.; in Mr. Ranch's  narrative, anil promptly urrh'ed at the  conclusion tl������������������at the damage had been  done on'that very day,-being nn������������������,Ava re  that the-bell had.been,cracked before?  In view of the - unhesitating nature of  Mr. Ranch'ei statements, this view seems  distinctly plausible.  - There is something el������������������e whieh lends  the color of truth to the oetogenarian's  narrative. As he relates, it was by  no meane customary to have boys ring  the bell. .."Major Jack" Downing  evidently astonished young; Rauch and  the rest when he pressed them into service .'������������������ his cottdjutofs. ���������������������������-.

C, Feb. 19���������������������������Short,,  but exceedingly drastic is the hill to  amend the Liquor Act of 1910, which  Attorney-General Bowser has introduced in the legislature, and which is  designed to eliminate minor defects  in the law which have revealed themselves in practice. Through some of  these defects the spirit and intent of  the Act have suffered���������������������������through others  the licensees.  As an example of the latter, it has  been shown to be a common practice  fou dealers operating under city  wholesalers' licenses to send their wagons out into the "unorganized" districts with kegs of beer and cases of  bottled goods, these being readily  sold to men employed in logging and  railway construction camps, etc., t,o  the loss of the local licensees, and  not infrequently.' to produce disturbances of the 'peace. This reprehensible practice it is proposed tomake  an end of by ..the inclusion in the Act  of a new subsection, providing ��������������������������� that  "No licensee having a wholesale license from any , municipality shall  sell liquor, either himself or by an  agent outside the municipality in  which he is so licensed."  Another feature of the Act affording in ifts original fiorm a" loophole  for serious abuses in the sale of intoxicants 'to minors is clarified and  strengthened by - the amendment of  Sec, 77 to broadly prohibit a licensee from- "giving,' delivering "or  furnishing" intoxicants to- minors  "for any- purpose or upon any pretext whatever."  The most striking innovations of  the amending bill are, however, found  in its three sections dealing with interdicts, Sec. 101. making the interdicted person a compellable witness,  and should he refuse upon examination to give information Vs to .where  he obtained^ liquor,1 rendering him liable to" .a. penalty, ,;upon summary."  conviction; of $20, andin default to'  30 'days' imprisonment,-" with or with-.,  but, hard labor -'at' the' discretion* of-  the convicting magistrate.'  Not only is a sale t to an interdict,  as- the law already .provides, a scri-"  ous /offense, but it is further forbidden by a new section (103) for an interdict to be permitted to frequent  or loiter in "any room or place in  thc licensed premises in which there  is a bar or in which liquor is kept  for sale," the penalty provided for  infraction of this prohibitory section  being $20 fine or 30 days' imprisonment, which at the magisterial discretion may include hard labor.  And still another and entirely new  section is most drastic of all. This  provides that any interdict discovered by a constable or other peace  officer under the Influence of liquor  may be forthwith apprehended without warrant and compelled to divulge  the source >of his supply; and if such  interdicted,person refuse to disclose  from whom, where and when he procured liquor, he is liable to a penalty"  of $20 and, in default of payment, to  imprisonment, with or without" hard  labor, for thirty days, or to both  penalty and imprisonment, in the discretion of the convicting magistrate.  Another new section prescribes that  the presence of emoty beer kegs or  bottles' in quantity may be taken as.  prima facie evidence of the sale or  consumprion of liquor, not only in  unorganized districts,' but equally  within city or other municipalities.  There" is still another'section of the  new liquor'bill which will strike consternation to the souls of the "blind  pigger" and " peripatetic "boot-lcg-  gcr," whose fraternity, heretofore  have looked upon ' the fines imposed  on them on .arrest and conviction  much' in the nature of a license fee  collection, in "some cases even-ineuir-,  ing cf Provincial officers when to expect another'"assessment." The new  section (82) opens the prison door as  a warning to illicit liquor sellers, tt  is drawn as follows: - ',.,-,.'*;- -     -   '  "Any person ,selling,; vending, bar-,  tering' or otherwise disposing -of  liquor- in. contravention^ of \ Sec7 66 - of,  this [Act,,and"'any person keeping or,  having "any ..liquor .for the" "purpose "of;  selling," trafficking;or trading therein  or. bartering ^therewith "in contravention* of ^Sec.- 67-Jbf-this-Act, shall, up  on summary conviction for a first  offence, be liable to a penalty of not  less than $100 nor more than $300,  and in default of payment to imprisonment with hard labor for not  less than six months nor more than  12 months; and upon summary conviction for a second or subsequent  offence, such person shall be liable to  imprisonment with hard labor for not  lens than 12 months nor more then 2i  months."

SMOKING AUTOMOBILES  The recent agitation against smoking  automobiles, resulting in city ordinances making the drivers of such cars  liable to fine, is not based ou mere supposition that such smoke is dangerous  .to the health of the community, but  rather does analysis show that this exhaust contains the very poisonous carbon monoxide. So poisonous is this  gas, in fact, that a proportion of two  parts of carbon monoxide to one thousand of air is considered dangerous to  ,broathe.

Exportation of British Pedigree
The departmental committee appointed some eighteen months ago to enquire
and report as io thc character and extent of the British export trade in line
with the colonics and other countries,
and to consider whether any steps could
be taken with a view to its development, have af length reported. It was
a representative committee, presided
over by Lord Strachie, then Sir Ethvard
Strachey, parliamentary secretary to
the Board of Agriculture. A large number of witnesses from breed societies,
etc., were examined, and, after due consideration, the committee arrived tit
, practically unanimous findings. Jn their
recommendation there is nothing that
is exactly new, but some of them put
forward views that have before been
discussed only quietly between Mends
or wu^in the guarded doors of; committee rooms. I refer to suggested
methods of purging the business of men
who will not or cannot go straight, if
'there arc any such engaged iu it���������in
other words, thc placing of the business
above suspicion. Some oi' the recommendations haruiy appear to go far
enough. -For instance, tho very first,
to the effect that the exportation of
inferior or unsuitable animals, should
be discouraged. All will agree to
this, but how can ���������anything be done?
A suggestion as to carrying it- into effect would have been useful. It is also
recommended that consuls , in certain
districts should have a knowledge of
live stock, and that the Intelligence of
the Board of Agriculture should have
a-bureau of* information for increasing
facilities as regards experts, etc.
Clause 6 is thc first really important
one, and iu many respects the most important of the whole, but, like the first,
it may be difficult to carry into cited
:it deals with the old question of thc
establishment of a tuberculin testing
station in this"'country.    There cau be
��������� - no question that it would be of immense
bonent to tho trade if importing coun-
'    tries  would  accept  the  certificates  of
"    such an institution.   Thc government of
'   each country concerned, the committee
recommends, should in thc first place be
invited   to  appoint  au   official ,in  this
country "for   thc   purposes   of -testing
animal's for. exportation, as thc Ameri-
'   can  and  Australian governments have
'    already  done,    if any 'government  de-
"clined   this", it   should , be   ascertained
"whether,,tho authorities concerned would
recognize a certificate.issued,at a government testing station iii this-country.
The committee recommends that a sta-
---tion  or stations" should he-;established
���������i. if .'the-exportation: of  live, stock  now
���������-- or in, the future'would-seem to. justify
the   expenditure.    Air.   Middleton,   the

..reservations, would'go ' further in this
"- matter/- JJfc* recommends - that   sin. experimental   station   be  started,, iimno-
. diatcly, ancl he maintains that in a very
short time it would pay its way.      J
-believe hc would receive a considerable
amount  of  support in this  contention.
Apart'from* the .report   of   stock,   we
- have no  official assistance in  the way
"    of encouraging thc test, and it is probable that such a station would be used,
to  some  extent," by  breeders at home.
,   IIow, much it would mean lo the exporters-if all testing was done in the
' exporting country ean readily bo under-
. stood.      tt  would   probably, alter  the
whole  conditions-of  trading.    At pre-
* sent an animal is generally bought subject'to thc rest, wdiich means it.has to
pass  in   this  country.    It may fail- in
. South America; that would bo tho ex-
.porter's misfortune and not the breeder's. The-latter is concerned with the
unofficial test here. Now, if thc final

this'test; and, as there would be abso-
sbould bo given to research work regarding infectious diseases. There aro
other recommendations, some of wliich
n\ean more assistance and facilities to
those engaged in the business from the
Board of Agriculture, but the chief
points in the recommendations havo
been attended to. and if some of them
watcrialize the trade will undoubtedly
be benefited.
Some of tlie members of the Hackney
Uorse Society do not sec eye to eye
with their council regarding the deletion
of several popular classes from the
schedule for the next Loudon show.' The
most of tho criticism is directed against
thc dropping of the classes for harness
horses ovor six years old and those for
stallions in harness. Thc show threatens to become a trial ground for novices, and some appear to see iu this
move the glorification of thc International Horse Show at the expense "of
that of the Hackney Society. Without
saying anything regarding this aspect
of the affair, one may^ marvel at the
deletion of important aiid popular classes. The harness horse needs overy assistance to hold its own. It depends
on its attractiveness, for men.in a huriy
in these days prefer an autocar, and
the horse of this type merely as a thing
of pleasure���������a thing of beauty and a
joy for as long as possible. Why, then,
appeal to the public only by young-
novices? It does seem that a mistake
has been made, and it should be rectified.
Amongst the foot and inouth disease
theories there is one, though giveu little prominence to in  public, may con
ceivably be less fantastic than it looks.
Tt is contended that foxes are smuggled
into this country from the continent,
and that they are the bearers of the
trouble. Everyone knows, of course,
that the disease is exceedingly infectious, and, granted that foxes do Ind
their way from me continent���������a good
deal to grant, certainly���������the rest of the
theory is not very far-fetched. "JVc are
daily expecting the names of the committee of enquiry, and the gentlemen
chosen will be up against a difficult
and serious task.

hitoly no risk, prices, would be better.
The fact that animals that pass here
sometimes fail at thc other end is no
argument against the test, being conducted in this country, for thc test is not
infallible, and others that have failed
in this country have sometimes been
risked and passed in excellent form on
tho other sido. Every exporter knows
__that_uicro_[s ahvaysa riskof .apparently sound animahi liiiiifig, and" that "a
few of the doubtful are a fair risk. If
we could prevail upon flic authorities
in other countries fo do then* own testing hero or to accept an official test a
great deal of money would be saved
in the freight of animals that aro condemned. If would give a confidence
to buyers that would do much for business, and wo cannot sec that thc test
would be any thc less trustworthy if it
were carried out on this side. Other
authorities would be allowed to impose
their own conditions and appoint their
own men to see that they were carried
out. Wc can offer the facilities and
can preach the advantages to both importing and exporting countries, and,
indeed, to all concerned in thc trade;
but the rest is in the hands of.our
friends across the sea, and the decision
lies with them.
Two clauses arc directed against
those -who may not keep thc crown of
thc canalway. Jf the existing law is
insufficient, it should be strengthened
to punish those who may doctor an
animal for the test, and also to penalize
anyone who may tamper with pedigrees
or makes any fraudulent use of certificates. These, of course, are quito independent of the time and place "of the
official test,'.-whether iii. this or in the
importing country. Then tho question
of railway charges, which is moro oi*
less a domestic question, is dealt with
in a few clauses. It is recommended
that no charge** bo'made in the existing
import regulations, so that tho country,
may bo kept as free of disease as possible, and also that official assistance

amount to over $12],000,000. The latter
shows an increase of over $9,000,000,
which indicates that the bank continues
lo do its full share in furthering thc
development of the country and that il
continues to grow with the country.
Thc call and short loans wliich the bank
keeps in New York and London, while
returning only a small rate of interest,
aro found to bo a wise provision. Thc
call of these loans placed in London
and New York is far less disturbing to
Canadian business than if they wero on

Altogether the showing made by the
Bank of Montreal is a very satisfactory one, and reflects the highest credit
upon tho directors and upon the general
manager, who is now relinquishing tho
position which he has held for so many
years. Iiis successor will be Mr. 11. V.
Meredith, who has been associated all
his life with the bank whose affairs he
will in future direct.
Tho address of President E. B. Angus
was, as usual, a careful resume of tho
financial, commercial and industrial
expansion of the Dominion. The Bank
of Montreal, with its many branches
scattered throughout the country and
its intimate relationship with every
phase of our national life, is able to
present authoritative reports regarding
the country's growth and development.
Without exception, this year's report
by tha president was full of optimism.
That this was not unfounded is shown
by the bank's record for 1911, which
was the most successful in the 94 years
of its history.
Celluloid is a species of solidified collodion produced by dissolving guncotton
(pyroxylin) in camphor, with the aid
of heat and pressure.
The guncotton is ground in water to
a f]ne pulp iu a machine similar to that
used in grinding paper pulp. The pulp
is then subjected to powerful pressure
in a perforated vessel to extract the
bulk of thc moisture, but still leaving
it slightly moist for, the next operation.
This consists in, thoroughly incorporating finely comminuted gum-camphor with the moist guncotton pulp.
The proportions employed are said to be
one part by weight of camphor to 'two
parts by weight of'lhe pulp. With this
mixture any coloring matters required
ean now be incorporated.
"The noxt step is to subject the mass
to powerful pressure in order to expel
from it the remaining traces of moisture, and incidentally to effect also the
more intimate contact of the camphor
with the pulp.
The dried and compressed mass is
next placed in a mold, open at tho top,
iuto which fits a solid plunger. A heaA7y
hydraulic pressure is brought to bear
upon the plunger, and at the same time
the mixture is heated to.a temperature
of about three hundred degrees Fahrenheit.
"When the mass is taken out of thc
press it hardens and acquires the extraordinary toughness and elasticity
wliich are the distinguishing characteristics uof the product.
Among its many uses celluloid is very
largely employed as a substitute for
ivory, which is imitated with great
success. Tortoise-shell, malachite,
mother-of-pearl,-coral, aud other costly
material'- are also so successfully ' imitated that the average person can'hard-
ly detect the original from the copy.
Celluloid is also usedas.a substitute
for porcelain-.in the" manufacture, of
dolls,.wdiich will stand a great .deal of
rough usage without,'breaking. ;���������:. ' -���������

"In Japan until within ' recent'" times
the sword was considered a - badge -of
the aristocracy". Th_e etiquette that regulated the wearing'of the'long and the
short sword was expressed in a number
of minute'-rules. _ ,   -,.'  .    ". ���������**_
The most trivial breach of these
minute observances was often the cause
of murderous brawds and dreadful re-
prisr.Js. ��������� To touch another's weapon .or
to come into collision with the sheath
was a dire offence, aud to enter a
friend's house without first leaving the
sword outside was a breach of friendship.    ' . .
Ho whos' position justified the accompaniment of an attendant invariably left the sword in , his charge at
the entrance, or if he wero * alone it
was usually laid down at the entrance.
If removed inside this was invariably
done by the host's servants; aud it was
not touched by the bare hand, but with
a silk napkin kept for,the purpose.
Tin sword was placed upon a sword-
rack, iu the place of honor near the
guest, .and treated with" all the politeness due to an honored visitor who
would, resent a' discourtesy.
journalistic work, and soldiering, which
reminds one that the Earl of Yarmouth might fortune first as a Press
reporter, aud afterwards on thc stage
under the name of Eric Hope. It was
the Earl of Yarmouth who appeared
in a play of his own production, a musical comedy, entitled, "Tho Pigeon
House," which, however, scarcely met
with  tlie success it deserved.
Another peer who played in one of
his own productions, although not in a
professional sense, was the late Alar
quess of Anglesey, who in a treble bill
which he staged in 3 901 in the Gaiety
Theatre, Anglesey Castle, enjoyed the
distinction of being at once actor-man
ager and author. It may be remembered
that it was the Marquess who also startled the world somo years ago by appearing iu a blaze of jewels as principal boy in a pantomime in his own
Of late/years there have been many
instances of actresses leaving the stage
to enter the peerage, but in the case
of the Hon.' Helen Douglas-Scott-
Montagu, daughter of Lord Montagu
of Beaulieu, we have an instance of a
lady member of: the peerage entering
the theatrical profession; for under the
name of Miss Elaine Cecil she has appeared in "The Girl in thc Train."
Like Viscount Danganj Miss Cecil has
a great passion for the stage, and a
natural talent which ought to go a long
way towards making her an ornament
of the profession.        ���������
An actor who had been out of work
for many months and was, very much
run down at the heel���������who did not even
have a nickel lo his name���������heard that a
mummer of his well-known capabilities
was needed in a theatre that supported
a very fine stock company.. This the
aire was located in "Westchester, forty-
five minutes from Broadway, by the
'New Haven route, and about five
hours by foot. The actor was desperate for employment. Buttoning up
his Prince Albert coat and summoning
all his courage to his support, he struck
out from Forty-second street for "Westchester.' When ho reached the theatre the manager welcomed ��������� him with
open arms. "Of all the actors in the
world," the manager exclaimed, "you
arc the one I most preferred.". The
actor beamed with as much delight as
his, famished condition would permit,
but'with"dignity replied: "I heard you.
What do you want me to do?" '"Of
course, you    know lhat 'in.all stock
companies actors must dress their own
parts?"      "These many years have I
been   aware   of  that,"    acknowledged
the actor.      "Well,"    continued    the
manager,   "this  is  a  new  production.
You will have the fattest thing iu tho
piece.      J n the first act you are on a
yacht. You wear a cream serge outing
nit, commodore's cap, canvas shoes, silk
negligee  shirt, and a flowing necktie.
Jn  the  second  act you  wear  an  English   walking  coat,   trimmed   with  silk
braid,  gray   vest  with   pearl   buttons,
pin-striped    trousers,     patent    leather
shoes   with  gray  spats,   a   wing  collar
with a four-in-hand tie, a top hat, and
carry a gold-hesided    cane.      In    the
third act you wear a dinner suit, and
in  thc last act you wear full evening
dress.      Thc latter must be particularly proper and immaculate." The actor
regarded the  manager seriously  for  a
minute, pondering for a second  upon
his  poverty,   and  then   remarkd:   "In
God's   name,   who'1- wrote   this   part���������'

wished to show his friends his collection.
To express a wish to see a sword was
not usual unless the blade in question
was of great value, wdieu a request to
be shown it would be a compliment.
The sword would then be handled
with the back toward the guest, tho
edge turned toward the owner and the
hilt to tho left, the guest wrapping the
hilt""either_in" the little" silk" napkin
always carried by gentlemen in their
pockets or in a shed of clean paper.
The weapon was drawn from the
scabbard and admired inch by inch, but
not to the full length unless the owner
pressed his guest to do so, when, with
much apology, thc sword was entirely
drawn and hold away from tho other
persons present.
After being admired it would be carefully wiped with a special cloth, sheathed, and returned to the owner as before.
The short sword was retained in the
girdle, but at a long visit both host
and guest laid it aside.

The Perfection Smokeless Oil Heater, with its

room, whether in the country- or city home.
- No home is quite complete without a Perfection Oil
Heater. It is a necessity in the fall'.and spring, when it is too
warm to start the regular heating apparatus, and too cool to be
without heat. In the midst of winter it is. often convenient as

MAKING A "PLANTING  SOIL  " I have a little scheme for pre-  - paring the soil in which'seed is  to be planted, and I seldom fail  to get a good stand of plants if  the seed is all right. I make a  hand seive of convenient size 14 x  24x3������������������ in. using wire mosquito  netting for the screen. Through  this seive I pass sufficient garden  soil to give me three or four pails  of sifted soil. I also pass through  the seive the same quantity of  ���������������������������Houildei-s-sandt^t-hen^t-horoug^hl-y-  mix together the sifted soil and  sand. Passing it through a coal  sieve a few times will do the trick  although it can be done with a  shovel. The above quantity is  sufficient for any ordinary garden  for one season. After sowing the  seed in a drill,  I cover with   the  soil-land mixture and thoroughly  pack the covering on the seeds,  usually by standing on a narrow  board placed over the planting.  No matter how hard it rains or  how hot the sun shines, the sand  keeps the covering friable and  the seed-sprouts easily break  through. If the covering is dry it  will run from the hand the same  as timothy seed when a handful  is held up with thumb uppermost.  This facilitates equal distribution  of the covering. My plan takes  less=t-ime=in-the=aggregate-=-than-  the-old way of picking out the  stones and pulverizing the soil by  hand as seeds are covered. I use  the mixture on all seeds smaller  than corn, beans and peas. A  heavy clay soil may need a larger  proportion of sand. ��������������������������� G. E. S.,  New York.  Stationery.
