In spite of.the many ^counter attractions in the city, the L beral  meetfng' in -_Jthe opera house on  Tue.-day evening was one of the  most largely attended ever ,h"ld  h-re.    All the seats were filled when  Liberals, if given power,   would  en-  believe what is not true."  Mr. Oliver drew the attention of  the audience .to one of the most important provisions of the Liberal  platform, namely, the creation of a  department of labor under a responsible mini.-ter of the. crown. The  duties of this department would be  to keep thoroughly informed   in  re  act laws that would force the speou-  lors to dispose.of   their  vast   hold  ing-j to bona fide settlers   at  reasoti-  bel prices  Mr. Brewster examined Mr'Ross'  President Melntyre, of the local as-!statement about the fifty thousand  sociation, took- the chair" on 'the ' alleged pre emptors, and asked  stage, accompanied by H.

The Conservative   party   of  Brewster dealt at length with- the  waste of mouey in the  appointment  the  province had  of royarcommissions, the   payment  lived past its youth, and senile decay was now setting in. He described as a patriotic movement  rather than a political one the growing determination of independent  Conservatives to effect a change  of government, a movement, of  which very striking instances are to  be found in all sections of province.  When the present government came  into power they- found an empty  treasury and an  unalienated   prov-  of commissions to par,ty friejids  for moving Indians to new reserves,  and the system of public works ex-  pendiiiir s which was so corrupt  and inefficient that only 50 per cent  was honestly expended and the bal  ance used to keep the machine running. A liberal allowance was made  to the hired government press,  which had to be pap-fed.  Honest John Oliver, ex-M.P.P.  for Delta, who followed Mr. Brewster, was pleased'to note   the   many  in  ince     Now, after  eleven   years   of,  rulej there is an alienated province j improvements made in the city  and the same wail of an empty since his last visit here. He touched  treasury. Premier McBride had rs on nearly all questions of the day of  cently made the boast that there [ public interest, but devoted most of  were $2,000,000111 the treasury.

He-referred to Premier  McBride's statement in a recent  speech, wherein it was said that it  -had been necessary to sell land to  get money for the prosecution of  public works. Properly expended,  money was well spent which' was  laid out in that way, though in this  province there was a decided lack of  care.in the expenditure. But with  all the best of the,avaiiable land  alienated, and held by speculators  at prices which no bona fide settler  could   pay, for what   settlers   were  i     ���������  i the   lateral   roads   and   trails to be  Since the eighth page of this! builtir* The premier tried to fright-  week's issue of The Sun was printed en }he people by asking where the  it has been found advisable to!

Contrasted with this was Mr.  Wednesday evening, February 11, j Bowser's statement in Vancouver  to Thursday evening, February 12, j that there was practically no more  in order not to interfere with other land beyond a little at the coast for  attractions. sale.    Mr. Brewster said   that   the  LIBERAL MEETING  being unqualifiedly in favor of  equal suffrage. "Are not tho mothers of the land," he asked, "who  have tbe forming of the minds of  the rising generation in their care,  as-well qualified to vote intelligently  as the men who.work in the streets  and in ditches?" In the state of  Washington the women had now  exercised the franchise for' several  years. As one of the results of  their participation in public affairs,  Washington had now on its statute  book the most perfect workman's  compensation act on this  continent.  Mr. Oliver said there were some  people who admitted that the pres-  sent government is corrupt, but they  invariably supplemented this admission by saying that if the Liberals  obtained power they would be just as  bad. "This is taking a degraded view  of public life," he said. "There  is such a thing as honesty among  those who administer public, affairs.  During all the years I spent in the  house, do you think that I did not  have opportunities? And do you  think I took advantage of any of  !)hem?   If   you   believe- I did, you  ommend and secure the passing of  needed legislation for providing additional* safeguards for prevention  of accidents and disease, and generally to protect the interests of la  bor throughout the province.  The speaker then came  to   what,  to his mind, was of the   utmost importance   to   the   workers  of   this  province, the providing of the  necessaries   of   life   to the persons injured during the course of their employment,   and   for  providing   for  those dependent upon them in   case  of death, It was true that we have a  workman's compensation act   upon  the statute book at tbe present time,  but it was very limited in its  scope.  There were so many doubts as to its  applicability   in   any   specific case,  and resulted in   so much   litigation  that it was probably more injuriout  than   beneficial   in   the  aggregate.  Authentic   statistics,      covering    a  period of seven years, show   that in  the state of Washington   48 per cent  of the amount paid in   premiums to  the casualty   companies   reach . the  injured workmen.    From this must  be deducted litigation expenses, and  in many cases the injured workman  fails   to   receive  anything.    About  three years ago the state  of   Washington provided industrial insurance  for a limited number  of  classes   of  employees, and this system   of   insurance provides certain and prompt  compensation for injured workmen.  Litigation   betweeu   employer and  employee   is   abolished;" 91.8   per  cent of tbe premiums paid by  employers are available for   compensation purposes.    The Liberals of this  province propose to adopt the same  principle   as   that  of   Washington,  but will extend scope of the law  to  include all hazardous   employments  and simplify many of  the   working  details as  well.    Briefly  stated, we  will create a department   of   industrial   insurance.    This   department  will be  administered   by   commissioners.    These commissioners  will  be as far  as possible free  from,  po-  The concrete piers for the C.P.R.  bridge in this city have been completed, and the steel for the superstructure has commenced to arrive  on the ground.

A Story of Labouchere  Labouchere's popularity at Frankfort, according to his own account as  given in 'The Life of Labouchere,' rested on a very simple- basis. Great Britain was represented at the diet by Sir  Alexander Malet, one of the most popular chiefs to be found in the service.  But I was even more appreciated  than my chief, he would relate, and  this is why: Sometimes there was a  ball at .the court which we wore expected -'to attend. At my first ball  supper I found myself next to a grandee, gorgeous in stars, and ribbons. The  servant came to pour out champagne,  I shook my head, for I detest champagne. The grandee nudged me and  said, let him pour it out. This I did,  and he explained to me that our host  never gave his guests more than one  glass. So you see, if I drink yours I  shall have two. After this there used  to be quite a struggle to sit near me  at court suppers.    \  After Long Practice  3he is taking long chances. She is  his  third  wife.  Others all divorced?  Yes.  He ought to know how to treat a  wife by this time.  Making a bluff is an art that many  people practice with a great degree of  success.  It is, easier to be foolish than it la  to  square yourself for V.\e foolishness.  -Tt Is a heap' easier to deceive ourselves than it is to deceive any one  else.  A lover has the sympathy of most  people. They all'know what is coming  to him.  The devil is often blacker than he is  painted, especially when he paints red.

"I rubbed on different remedies;   Salvo and ���������: Cream but they did no  good. Then I saw tho advertisement of  Cuticura Soap and Ointment and sent for a  sample.

He  adds the following anecdote, ' which  seems to show that he would , have  been quite at home in the atmosphere  of assassination which lie.believed to  exist in St. Petersburg: Once in Tientsin "a low fellow caine into my courtyard and told the banner captain in  charge that he intended taking ray  life. He had a long piece of wire and  said he was going to hang me to my  own gateposts. I had to have his  head cut off before he would stop talking.  Sometimes we can't even enjoy the  pleasant temperature of the house because we are thinking what a lot of  luxury our coal dealer is "able to purchase.  When a giil learns how to make  fudge she thinks that the whole range  of culinary attainments arc hers.  The keynote of character is some  times unduly .emphasized by the overtone of conceit.

Some time ago a notorious character  in the north of Ireland was sent to  jail for two months. During the time  of his incarceration a false report got  circulated about the village that he  had died in jail.  One day, after comi-ig out of jail the  priest met him in the street.  Well, Pat, said the clergyman, I  heard you were dead.  Oh, sure, I heard it myself, replied  Pat, but I didn't believe it.

Migrating Birds  During.many of the nights in September the inhabitants of tho island of  Helgoland are astir with big lanterns  arid a kind of enormous butterfly net,  the former to attract an . dazzle the  migrating birds when they como to  earth to rest, and the latter to secure  them. Mr. Seebohm, the great au-:  thorlty on bird migration, states that  ho has known as many as 15,000 skylarks to be caught on the Island in a  single night. The migrating birds are  always interesting to the ships that  ply across the North sea and the Baltic. In September they settlo on yard  arms on deck rather tired, and the  seamen catch flies and collect them  into receptacles for the benefit of the  birds.

U. 982  The 96th annual report of the Bank  of Montreal is the jest ever issued by  Canada's oldest and best known bank.  The net profits for the year amount to  $2,648,000 as compared with $2,518,000  for the previous year, being at the rate  of 16.66 per cent, compared with 16.21  per- cent for 1912. 'An examination of  the report shows the bank to be' in a  particularly healthy .condition. The  Capital stock of the bank is now $16,-  000,000, while the Rest Account is also $16,000,000. , During the year,'dividend ��������� disbursement:; amounted to  $1,920,000, being made up of four quarterly dividends at the rate of; 2 _. per  cent, and two bonuses' each of 1 per  cent. - , Altogether the bank, has $3,-  451,000 available' fo: ' distribution,  which Is i:iade up of net profits for  the year of $2,648,000 and a balance  carried forward from the .previous of  $802,000. Dividend disbursements  absorbed $1,920,000 and bank premises account $485,000, leaving a bar  ance of profit and loss carried" forward  of $1,046,000.  During ihe year eleven branches  were opened and three closed, making  a net gain for the year- of eight  branches.  A further examination of the report  shows that steady and consistent-pro  stress .was made throughout the year,  Tho Note Circulation of the bank is  now slightly over $17,000,000, showing  a  pain of almost $1,000,000 over fh������  rpturns of the previous year.       The  Deposit'?.show a. sain during the year  of   $2.*"00.000  which   must  be  considered satisfactory in view of the many  calls for cnuital made during the pasr.  few    months.   The    bank    shows    a  healthy  Increase  in.gold   nnd   silver  coin; hut on the other hnnd. Government notes and othp.r nniokly avail i bio  assets show a slight falling off.

"' ,.  The address of.the pre^'dent was a  masterly summary of    financial    and  economic conditions both at home and  hbroad;     Mr. Meredith  reviewed  the  history of tha bank, touched on   'he  trade and Industrial exnansi-vi of ihe  pmviinion, referred to   the   mone'tarv  situation .abroad and thfo'T"*'out *i- r-T;  maintained a note of onti.riism. While  advocating  a  poliov of con'servittsiii  and onution. i'e emresned the oninlon  that the commercial eonrm-'^i of Canada was fundamentally sound.  Tn his discussion of the general situation. Mr. Meredith described the  year 1913 as a memorable one. Tn  Great Britain the demands for money  have been imusuallv heavy with tbe  result that the rates were hieher  than in other j'ears. He pointed ont  that there were miuiv factors effecting  the monetary situation, tho most not-  ahlp being the Balkan War. the world  wide trade activity, the ris.> In prices  of commodities and tho serious nominal disturbances in France and Germany. Further, the derr.xul for gold  on the part of several countries such  as "Rgynt and Tndia, added to the  acnteness of the mon3tary situation.  Counled with this was a considerable  degree of social unrest in Great Britain. Another disturbing factor was  "the Mexican situation.  In his review of the trade of Canada,  Mr. Meredith was most optimistic,  pointing out that the exnort trade is  now showing a marked advance- while  the imnorts "are nrae.tica.lly stationary,  indicating thereby "that Canada is paying lier bills by the exportation of  produce.  The aggregate foreign trade of Canada for the 7 months endinf October  was S636.000.000 as against $580,000,000  for the knmo period a year ago,'while  in the same period the excess of imports over evnorts have been cut down  from S190.0flO.fl0O to $145 000.000. Mr.  Meredith estimated the value of the  field c.rons this year, at prespnt nrices.  at $500,000,000. He then took up each  province, bv itself, ehowinc the conditions prevailing in each and summarizing tbe trade outlook, cloniper with the  following optimistic summary.  "Business as a whole continues  good. Our vast resources have been  scarcely scratch nl. immigration is  larsre. railway construction;! active,  new territory and new sources of  wealth are being steadily opened un  and the conOdence of British and For-  cIpti capitalists in our country Is unabated. A temporary halt can only  refresh Car.ada for yet greater achievements."  HURRAH, NO MORE  LAME BACKS!  This Case Proves That the Best and  / Strongest Liniment Ever ���������Made  is Nerviline  When It comes to determining .the  real merit of a medicine no weight of  evidence is more convincing than the  straightforward statement of some reliable and well-known person who has  been cured. Fcr this reason.wo print  the verbatim .statement of Juan E.  Powell, written from his home in  Carle ton. "I am a strong, powerful  man, six feet tall, and weigh nearly  'two hundred. I have" been accustomed all my life to lift great weights,  but one day I overdid it, and wrenched my back badly. Every tendon and  muscle was sore. To stoop or bend  was agony. I li.ul a whole bottle of  Nerviline rubbed on in one day, and  by' night I was well again. I know  of no liniment possessing one-half the  penetration and pain-subduing properties of Nerviline. I urge its .use  strongly as an invaluable liniment and  household cure for all minor ailments,  such as strains, sprains, swellings,  neuralgia, sciatica, lumbago, rheumatism, and muscular pain."  No better medicine for curing pain  was ever put in a bottle than Nerviline���������rub It on and rub it in���������that rubs  out all aches, pains,    and    soreness.  WOOD-USING   INDUSTRIES  Iver 1,200 Ontario    Firms ��������� Contribute  Statistics  According to a bulletin now obtainable from the Forestry Branch Ottawa, 807,456,000 fc-ct, board measure, of  wood were used by thirty-eight different industries in the manufacture of  all sorts of finished products, from  spools to ships. ��������� The value of the  wood so.used, a^ purchased in the  rough, represented a total of $.1.9,101,-  384, and the capital engaged in these"  industries' (which do not include sawmills, etc.), together with the labor  engaged in the manufacture- of these  finished products, represents a very  important economic asset to the -resources of the province."  Thirty-four1 different kinds'of wood  wore used, chief of which was pine,  representing 21.7 per con'c of the total  and costing, on the average, S25.60 per  thousand feet, board- measure. . Good  clear, white pine,' however,- is becoming comparatively scarce and' it is  being- increasingly substituted by  spruce, which cost: little more than  half as much, being one of the cheapest woods on the market. It is signi-  ficen't lo note that .only six .native  species were purchased entirely within the Province, considerably over $5.-  000.000 being paid for imported wood.

B.C  FRIDAY,  FEBRUARY 6,   1914  The large attendance at the  Liberal meeting on Tuesday  evening was significant. It indicates that the people have  awakened to a realization of  the state of affairs in *_ this  province, and are now willing  to listen to all sides of public  questions. A few -years'-ago  they were so completely under  the spell of the Victoria machine that a Liberal speaker  could not get a hearing. We  yet hope to,live to see the  day m British Columbia'when  a man will be able to openly  avow his political' principles  without jeopardizing his business interests.  Perhaps wc should feel  grateful to the member . for  Grand Forks for tolling���������even  afthisjate hour���������the government a few facts about the  Doukhobors. .Perhaps the  government will- do something to remedy the evils,  or perhaps'it will continue to  follow the advice of. Commissioner Blakemore���������but' this is  too difiicnlt a problem for one  who"is not in the good graces  of the machine to solve.  {Concludedfrom Page 1.)  provided at the cost of   the   depart  merit     Compensation from the   insurance fund    is   at   once available.  There will be no quarreling, n.> litigation, no ill feeling.   .  .  After discussing a number,of other  subjects, Mr. Oliver  turned   his attention   to   Conservative   platform.'  He said it  was a very   good   docu  rnent.  Some of the  pj sinks    he .en  dorsed    The only'"bad'feature  about  it was that it bad not  been  carried  out.    He read it  clause by   clause,  but failed to find a single pledge, in  it that bad been fulfilled by the ad  ministration.     Ln    order   to   afford  the electors an opportunity of contrasting the principles they voted  J for with the government's policy,  The Sun reprints the platform , in  full:  1. That this convention reallinns  the policy of tho party in matters of  provincial road.s.and trails, tho ownership and control of railways and the  development of tho agricultural resources of the province as laid down  in the platform adopted in October,  1899, which is as follows:  To actively aid in the construction  of. trails throughout the undeveloped  portions of the province and the  building of the provincial trunk roads  of public necessity.  To adopt the principle of govern-  ment owncisliip of railways in so far  as the circumstances of the province  will admit, and the adoption of the  principle that no bonus should be  granted to any railway company  which does not give the government of  the province control of rates over  lines bonused, together with the op  tion of purchase..  To actively assist by state aid in  the development of. the agricultural  resources of the province  2 That iu tho meantime and until  the railway policy above set forth can  be aocomplished a general railway act  be passed, giving freedom to construct  railways under certain approved regu  lations, analogous to,the system that  has resulted in such extensive railway  construction in the United States,  with so much advantage to trade and  commerce.  3. That to  encourage   the   mining  industry, the  taxation   of  metallifer  on.-, mines should be on   a   basis   of  a  percentage of the net profits.  4. That the government ownership  of telephone systems should be  brought about as a first step in the  acquisition of public ntilities.  5; That a' portion of every coal  area hereafter to be disposed of should  be reserved for sale or lease, so that  state owned mines may be easily accessible,' if their operation become  necessary or advisable.  G. That in the pulp land leases pro  vision shonld be made for reforesting  and that steps shonld be taken foi  the general preservation of forests by  guarding against the wasteful destruction of timber.  7.   That the legislature and govern  ment of the province snould  persevere  in the effort to secure the exclusion of  Asiatic labor.  6'   That the matter of   better terms  in the way of subsidy and   appropriations for the  province should   be   vig  orously    pressed   upon   the Dominion  govern ment  6. That the silver lead industries  of the province- be fostered and encouraged by the imposition of increased customs duties on lead and  lead products imported into Canada,  and that the Conservative members of  the Dominion house be urged to support atiy motion introduced for such  a purpose.  10. That as industrial disputes aT  most invariably result in great loss  and injury both to the parties direct  ly concerned and the   public,   legisla  RELIABLE  ALARM GEOCRS  For these dark mornings  produce a tendency to ,  sleep in.

From basement to roof every  detail of construction ami furnishing  has been worked out in perfect accord  with this one idea and would seem to  assuro tho largest iroasuro of personal  enjoyment and restfultiess to its  guests���������a placo where comCort-loving  people might enjoy lifo to the utmost  and feel thoroughly at home.

THE     FORT    GARRY,    WINNIPEG,    MANITOBA  in its decoration and refinement the  cheer and comfort provided within its  walls���������and from which one may enter  the spacious dining and tea rooms, also the cafe and bar.  The central feature of the main floor  Is the circular tea room of impressive  and beautiful Adam design, unbroken  by columns, lofty in height, and finely  lighted by broad windows and circular  domed ceiling.  The Mezzanine gallery Is also a novel feature, and is obtained by the introduction of a store:' midway between  the office floor and tho parlors. It is  reached by a broad marble staircase  from the main entrance lobby and is  finished and decorated In white and  delicate shades of colo . It overlooks  the entrance lobly, dining room, cafo  and tea room and will be used as gentlemen's writing room. It commands  a splendid view of those portions of  the house where tho most life cccurs,  and yet at the same time affords a  quiet sense of retirement. On this  floor, is also located the ladles' parlor  and drawing room and tho executive  office,; of tho management.  The ball room, banquet hall and foyer havo been located on tho seventh  floor. These rooms are of the richest  of the public rooms, and havo been so  arranged with separate kitchen service, reception nnd dressing rooms, so  as to In no wa; interfere with tho privileges of the guests of the hotel. The  banquet room with Its stage and dancing floor, and on account of Its location, will bo particularly attractive for  concerts and meetings. I  Immediately In front of the foyer of  the ball room and >anquet hall is a  beautiful loggia forming a promenade  the entire width of the building and  commanding a view of the city of Winnipeg.  The building as a whole forms a  fine example of what modern science  can do in the elimination, of fire risk;  every girder, beam and rafter is of  non-expansive steel, every partition of  terra-cotta, every flooi of marble, tile  or cement,' and the stairways of iron.  It is absolutely fireproof, and while  every precaution has been taken to  insure absolute protection to life and  property, an equal measure of attention has been devoted to 'ts sanitation and the safeguarding of health.  Seventy per c. t. of the brooms are  outside rooms, all are lighted and ventilated with adequate window areas  and each room has 'its' own private  hath. No treatment of the Interior  which effects garishness has been  used. The color 'tones are in perfect  harmony and the furniture has been  mado to orde/ from special designs  such as one would ordinarily find in  private homes of refinement.  On "..5 first floor are the state  apartments, consisting of parlor, bedrooms and dining room, beautifully decorated and furnished In the Adam period. Thero aro als < four private dining rooms on the floor each one of  different glze and character, and furnished to suit the needs ot the most  fastidious. On each floor there aro  parlor suites consisting of two or moro  rooma.  FARMERS  Can always make sure of getting tho highest prlcea fop WHEAT, OAT������.

I Now, this was sowing the wind to  reap the whirlwind, for they had all  received permission to go to their  homes to spend Thanksgiving, and,'  Having spent all his money Instead, he  nnd not the wherewithal to pay for a  ticket on the'rallroad to anywhere.  ��������� "What'U you do, .Tack," asked Joe  Baxter, one of bis mates���������"go back  aboard the ship for the ordinary  {Thanksgiving dinner of salt pork, with  ���������olum'duff thrown In for Thanksgiving, or walk where you are going?"  i "I'll not go to the ship," Jack replied. "I don't like the railroads, any-  .way. They're dangerous. They swing  "around tho curves in a way to make  en old salt sick, and if they don't make  LIm sick they scare him to death,  .which is worse. There's no sea room  on a railroad, and when two trains are  comiu' together head on on the same  .track there's no, sheeriu' off, and  there's.no savin' of life by jumpin' into  the water, for there's nothin' but hard  ground below. No, sir. I want an  open sea for my meauderin's. I'm goin'  ,to walk."  i   "What you going to do for grub on  She way?"  v>  l "Reckon I'll fish In the streams."  ' "Fish! You can't eat the ineaslj  little fish that swim in fresh water."  i. This staggered Jack. He was bom  ton the ocean, his father having been  taptain of a schooner, and his knowledge of tbe land was very meager. His  "ion can't be inr maegie I"  f  parents were both dead, and ho had  no brothers or sisters; consequently he  had no .reason for going lo where his  'mother bad lived. There was no one  he cared to see, no one with whom to  'eat a Thanksgiving dinner after he got  there. He was somewhat discouraged  at the information that fresh water  fish were not eatable, for be could not  Jthink of any way to support himself:  on a journey except by grub out of the  water. He hesitated whether to try it  or go back on to the ship.  i But there was one attraction that decided him to go on. During one year  that he had lived on land he had played with a little girl named Margie.  'What ber other name was he didn't  know. Margie was the only being living���������if, indeed, she did live���������who connected him with tin past. He longed  to -nee her just once to ask her if she  remembered playing hide and seek in  tho haycoek3 with him.  , So he started out tho morning of  {Thanksgiving day to walk to the village where he had spent this one year.  Ho didn't remember much about the  route, but had been told that ho must  proceed iu a northwesterly direction.  Baxter hud 25 cents left, which he be-  Btowed upon Jack. After a discussion  as to how the money had best be  spent It was decided that Jack would  need a compass even more than food,  go they stepped into a shop, bought a  compass, and nftcr a farewell hnnd-  ���������liake Jack started on his journey..  Jack soon found that ho could get on  better by Inquiring the way than by  relying on his compass, for sometimes  tha coiiinass would take him across ������  bay, ana7 a man he met toia mm uuw  he could go by road. About noon, getting, hungry, he stepped into a small  restaurant and traded his compass for  a couple of sandwiches. During the  nfternoon a glimmering of memory  eame.to him as to the route he passed  pver, and here and there a house, a  clump of .trees, a meadow, a bridge,  Itruck him familiarly. About dusk he  came to the schoolhouse where he and  Margie had learned to spell words of  ������ne and two syllables, had played at  recess and had gone together to their  fito'mea, aftfer school let out  ;"~ After that he didn't need a compass*  or any one to tell him- the way���������th1*-,*  is, he wouldn't have needed either had  it not been for night coming on. He  pursued his way,'guided rather by distance than sight, and, presently coming" to a crossroad, bo remembered  that Margie used to live down the road  to the right for about half a mile. So  he turned into It' and walked on,  though'overhanging trees darkened the  way.    .        , ���������  Jack had proceeded down the' crossroad about a quarter of a'mile when  he came to a house. It couldn't be the  house'where Margie had lived', for that  house,- as has been stated, was half a  mile from the crossing of the roads.  At any rate, it had seemed that distance to Jack sometimes when he triangulated it with his little seven-year-  old legs. But what surprised him was  that the house looked like'tbehouse in  which Margie had lived. The only  light was ,one downstairs in the rear.  Jack went back where ha saw the  light and looked in through a window.  The sight he saw excited an appetite  already keen. He was looking into a  kitchen, and viands were cooking on a  stove. There was no sound except the  sizzling of the cooking viands. Jack  put his; hand to the sash and found he  could easily raise it. He did so, and  the odor of the cooking, mingled with  the sound of the sizzling,' was delicious.  to ja; hungry man. Together they took  away every vestage of conscience. He  climbed into; the window, determined  to partake of tho refreshment before  him.  The. first thing he did was to throw  open the oven door, and there was a  turkey just turning a delicious brown.  Jack had served a term in the galley  aboard ship, and he instinctively basted  tho sizzling bird. Then he uncovered  a dish on the rear of the stove and  from the delicious odor it emitted judged that it was a miuce pie being warmed. Other dishes were in process of  preparation, but Jack was so entranced  with the turkey and the pie that he  took little notice of them.  It was hard for him to wait till the  turkey was thoroughly cooked, but he  held on to himself and waited. Finally he could refrain no longer, and,  "dishing up," he placed the various  viands on the table nnd sat.down to  eat. ���������''������������������������  Jack remembered that his mothei"  used to ask a blessing before each  meal. He could not repeat a blessing  to save his life, but he was so thankful for the delicious dinner provided  for him by Providence that he shut his  eyes, bent his head and expressed his  thanks in his own peculiar way. Then,  straightening up and opening his  "blinkers," he sat for a few moments  rigid. A young woman stood looking  at him from the other end of the room.  On her face was an expression of consternation at seeing a man sitting at  her table about to eat her Thanksgiving dinner.  "Ship ahoy!" said Jack by way of  speaking to this person, who had so  ���������suddenly appeared on the scene.  "Well, I declare!" was the reply.  "Would you mind tellln' me what  port you hail from?"  "Would you mind telling me what  you mean by making yourself at home  In my house and eating my dinner?"  "Is this your dinner?"  "My dinner! Goodness gracious,  what impudence!"  Had Jack not been in his sailor togs  doubtless the girl would have been  frightened out of her senses. As it  was, she was simply astonished. Besides, Jack was a good looking chap,  with an honest eye in his head, and  when, realizing the situation, a smile  broke out on bis comely young face  the owner of the dinner could not help  responding in kind. Jack rose and in  a few words told her how ho had just  reached port and had been given leavo  to go home for.Thanksgiving; that ho  had no homo-and had been looking  for a little girl ho used to play with  called Margie when hungry as a bear  be had stumbled on a dinner. Then he  begged her pardon for proposing to eat  what belonged to her and added that  ho would go on a quarter of a mile  farther to where Margie used to live  when he was a boy.  "Why, my name is Margie," said the  girl.   "I'm Margaret Wharton."  "You can't be my Margie! She was a  little bit of a��������� Anyway, It was farther from the crossroads to her house  than this house is."  "Are you Jack riunter?"  "Of course I am. How did you stumble on that?"  "Why, Jack!" .  "What's the mailer? Is l.h'ls a story  In a book, or am I Jack Hunter, able  seaman on rue"--    , v  "You're Jack, and I'm Margie, and  you've just come in time to eat a  Thanksgiving dinner with me. Sit  down."  They talked so fast, each constantly  breaking in on what the other was saying without stopping from doing justice to the dinner, that it would bo impossible to lay down just what they  said, but Margie got In information that  her parents were dead; her only brother was somewhere else, and she was  teaching school In a neighboring' city.  She had come to the old homestead to  spend Thanksgiving by herself and  while wailing for tho dinner to -be  cooked had gone������to a neighbor's to borrow some articles which she had forgotten to provide.  Well, to make a long story short,  these two, each be.'ng^ quite alone in  the world, decided, as Jack expressed  it, to convoy each other. Jack concluded not to go back to sea, accepting a  position with a boast builder. In time  Margie gave up Inr school, and thct  couple are now q\ He contented^ with  their lot and under Margie's able man-'  agement of their fli ances slowly accumulating funds as well as a family.  \ Prehistoric Relics From Africa.  . Central Africa was once the home  of c~ highly civilized people. The  latest proof of this comes from Leo  Frobenius, a German explorer, who  collected and brought back to -Berlin  recently many specimens of ancient  art. Much of this material is not  older than the sixth century after  Christ, but the various objects were  found in the ruins of places from 15  to 25 feet below the surface, and  these buildings had been built on  the ruins of still older and more, pretentious structures. Th'e^tatter were  of Bolid, well built masonry with  court yards and gardens surmounted  by roof3 of tiles, :  Some of the finest specimens of  statuary and bas. reliefs in bronze,  terra cotta and carved quartz come  from these prehistoric ruins. They  rival In perfection of workmanship  the best relics of ancient Egypt, thus  proving that In very remote ages Central Africa must have been inhabited  by a highly civilized people, and supporting the theory that Africa .was the  seat of the first high civilization  which was transmitted acroBs .the  Mediterranean to r.urope, while the  peoples who had founded It sank  gradually Into a condition of savagery, through what caug-> we can only,  conjecture.  .Shady and Sunny Side of Japan.  A remarkable diffe-ence exists be*  .tween the climates ot western and  central Japan, 20 much so that these  districts are distinguished by the  two names Sanindo���������shady side���������  and Sanyodo���������-sunny side���������i-espec-  tively. During the long and rigor-,  ous winter of western Japan the central provinces, bordering the inland  sea, enjoy dry and comparatively  mild weather. The two regions are  separated by mountain ranges, and  the factors determining their climate  conditions are distinct. A Japanese  writer says that while the winter  climate of central .and southern Japan depends on the southwestern  monsoons, that of the western coast  is direct--- related tc the barometric  area of noith China.

The primary teacher asked for volunteers in story telling or singing,  and one little girl finally offered her  services..

One would  jthink that London is called London  ltho world over, but such is not the  case. Once you, arrive In France and  London become Londres. To most  persons in Canada, the capital of Turkey is called Constantinople, but the  inhabitants of, the Ottoman empire  call their chief city Stamboul, and  'it appears as such on all Turkish  maps.  Rome and Florence   in   Italy may  sound all right to the average Canadian/but once you visit the two ci-:  jties you discover that they are called  Roma, and Firenze, respectively.  Not  ��������� one in six of the ordinary Inhabitants i  jof Greece call their country by such'  name.   The proper name Is Helles.     j  l    Most travelers making, their first  '.visit to the Holy Lands are startle-!;  by the announcement that Jerusalem  is called-El Kuds, the Sea of Galilee,  Bahr Tubaripeh; River Jordan, Sher-  iat el Kebir; the Dead Sea, Bahr  Lut, and Bethlehem, Beit Lahm.        j  Every person in the Dominion  knows what country you are referring to when speaking of Switzerland,  but the traveler visiting the little  European republic discovers that the  inhabitants oZ; the same call it everything but Switzerland. The population of that country is mostly made  ,up of French and Germans with about  lsix per cent, of Italians and- those na-  jtionalities .call it respectively.

If you ask anyone, layman or law-  lyer, outside of Scotland to give you a  correct   definition   of   the   marriage  I laws of Scotland, there is the ten-to-  one chance that he will be unable to  do  so.   People  have  been  heard  to  gravely declare that if a person, even  in jest, introduced a lady as his wife  to  somebody else  in Scotland,  they  were thereby tied toother in matrimonial, bonds.    Others who  do  not  "joke   with   difficulty"   have   been  heard to state their belief that many  Scots do not know whether they are  married or single!   Such matrimonial  travesties may have had some' sem-  (blance of reality in the romantic days  of Gretna Green, when runaway couples were united in wedlock by the  village blacksmith, but in these days  ahigher standard is placed upon the  ceremony of marriage,  both  by tho  'civil law and the l.w of the church.-  j     Only the other day an important'  ��������� point arising out of evidence given by,  ia Scottish roinister at a bigamy trial  [in London was settled by the Regis-  Sireng*'i of Eggshells.  Most people are aware of the  power of eggshells to resist external  pressure on the ends, but not many  Would credit the results of tests recently made, which appear to bo  genuine. Eight ordinary hens' eggs  were submitted to pressure applied  externally all over the surface of tho  shell, and the breaking pressures  varied between 4 00 and 675 pounds  per square inch. With the stresses  applied internally to twelvo eggs  these gave way at pressures varying  between thirty-two and sixty-five  pounds per square inch. The pressure required to crush the eggs  varied between forty and seventy-  five pounds. The average thickness  of the shells was thirteen-thous-  andths of an inch.

Herodotus learned from the Lyd*  ians that tho Greek ball game originated in a prolonged famine in Lydia.  For some time they endured it, but  at last they invented dice, knucklebones, the ball and all other games  except draughts. One day they  played these games so as to keep  their minds off food; the next day  they took food 'and did not play.  Thi3 alternation eked out their provisions for eighteen years, at the  end of which time, tho situation still  being desperate, half the population  emigrated. Ono can only suppose  that tho ball games were not very  athletic, otherwise the increased appetite given by liiora must have undone much of the caving.

The essence of the'  ; Scots' law is that marriage is essen<  Itially a civil contract.    Thus, If twoj  parties in the presence of witness"?,  solemnly and deliberately say to each  other, "You are my wife," "You are!  my husband," they are as indissolu-.  bly married as If the whole ceremonyj  of  banns,  clergyman,  r.nd marrlagai  lines had b<jen gone  through.      Nol  ��������� need, therefore, for anxiety on tho  ! marriage day about mistakes in these  j formalities; the want of any or all ofj  them does not in the least impair thai  validity ,of the marriage.   Or again.'  if a man and woman write, say, on,1  tho fly-leaf of a Bible the words, "I  take you, A, for my wife," -xd "I'  take you, P, for. my husband," re-  si.-ctively, and add their signatures,  both Intending to marry, they are aa  firmly knit as if they had been wedded by the Archbishop of Canterbury.  Such are the unromantic facts of a!  Scottish marriage. '  The propriety of allowing marriages to be effected in" this simple'  way without the safeguard of any religious ceremony has of ten been questioned, but the fact remains that the  Legislature allows it and that "it is  suited," as one authority has said "to  the Scottish national character and  circumstances." It cannot be said,  however, that such marriages are regarded with favor either by the law  'or by public opinlou.  Another interesting point cropped  up the other day Avhen a minister refused to   marry   any   couple whose>  names had been published on the registrar's board instead of having been  proclaimed in the parish church.   He|  did not object to the registrar's certificate on the ground that proclrm"-  tion in the church was a guarantee  of greater publicity, but simply that1  it was a prerogative of the minister,  that he was not obliged Lo marry parties   unless   after   proclamation   ot  banns.  In olden days the fees charg-'  ,ed by church officials or kirk session;  , .for proclamations of banns were very,  ��������� j heavy. An ordinary, charge was ������5 to  J!S7 50, but sometimes it rose as high  as  ?10.    After the Marriage Notica  Act of 187 8 came into operation (for  the express purporo of encouraging.
