FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 19114
Railway news is not very plentiful at present. Nevertheless there
is no ground for assuming that there
will be no new construction carried
.out in this district in the near future. It would not be atoll surprising to those who ore keeping in close
touch with these matters, to see
work commenced on the Phoenix
branch as soon as the snow is off the.
entire right of way. And once started the line will be. rapidly constructed. This is only the lull before the storm.

"Port Arthur" is too English

We suggest Port Katoff as more ap-

means cat in thc king's English.
And a cat has nine lives. We claim

/f must have .t..i.k many of the
admirers of the melodramatlo
stage that the various outrafM
to which the hero la subjected
luring the course nf the four acta,
when he Is "up against It" good and
hard, are as like each other as a row
i>t Japanese dolls. The locomotive, tht
flre-ieel. the buzs-naw, the mine explosion, and the shipwreck, have been
worked over and over again. What we
need Is novelty. And If I might make
a suggestion, some new and starUIng
climaxes could be worked up from Che
modest Incidents of our dally life. For
there are climaxes In the domestic circle Just aa distressing as any depicted
on the atage. Even when the canvas
buzz-saw Is advancing on him with all
the energy a perspiring atage carpenter can Impart to It, the hero does not
suffer the agony of apprehension that
convulses the soul of tht average man
wtipn he arrives home at three o'olock
In the morning and hears the contemptuous sniff which apprises him that the
wife of his bosom Is awaiting him at
the top of the stairs. Nor does tht
heroine, when starving to death In tht
latest black cashmere "Dally Hint from
Paris," evince more trepidation than
does the average matron, when the
leader In her particular brand of "sas-
«lety" drops In and finds her In a cot.
ton wrapper with her stort tteth In a
tumbler of water and her magnificent
chevtlure lying on top of the bureau,
Tnere are calamities just aa soul-har-
rowing In the domestic circle as In the
drama. The trouble Is that the play-
wrlgihts have never tnken hold of them
In the true spirit of discovery.
We will take as an example one heroic Incident that lately happened In this
city when a prominent citizen Induced
a small girl to save her life by jumping
from the wlndowslll of a burning house
on to the tails of his ulster, which she
accomplished without even breaking hla
flask. We can easily picture to ourselves how this could be worked up for
the stage. The Angel cheelld Is backed
up on the wlndowslll will a pound of
red Are burning on a tin shovel behind
her. The hero comes tearing on from
the side scenes. He sees her, and clasps
his hand to his forehead. (Heroes always do that. It Is a kind of a send-
off.) He seizes a handful of clustering
locks from his wig and tosses tt Into
the air. It comes down "Tails!" The
cheelld must be saved. With a wild
wrench he whips off his liver-pad and
holds It outstretched In his strong
arms. The cheelld jumps and re-bounds
from It like a half a brick from a book-
agent'a cheek. Once more she springs;
and again he Is foiled. With a cry of
anguish he hurls the liver-pad at thc
sneering villain and catches her on his
breath. And aa she Is towered In safety
to tha ground  we see  the  uuivcrlng

body of the villain natled fast to the
blazing ruins hv ihe faithful liver-pad.
.There la another point to whioh I
■vould like to draw attention. And
that is the way In which Inanimate objects are neglected. We have dogs,
jeese, chickens and poultry In melodrama. But that It* all. I was once acquainted with a gentleman who played
a cake of Ice tn the river Hcene In "Uncle Tom's Cabin." And the barrel in
"Panjandrum" was a most lovable personage ofT the stage. Many friends of
mine have also formed part of the
"hoarse gathering murmur" which always arises In the wings when the hero
la getting fnto ft remark bly tight place.
But these were not strictly Inanimate
objects. They drew salaries, and wore
red 'neckties on Sundays. What we
need Is a further extension of the drama from the farmyard to the grocery
counter, and the hardware store. And
we shall get It. We shall yet see ft
drama tn which the leading comedy
part Is played by a tin of canned
salmon and the heroine Is saved
from the villain's clutches by a barrel
of patent glue. And why should wa
not? There are many comedians now
on the stage who would compare unfavorably from an intellectual standpoint
with a tin of canned salmon. And
there are heroes beside whose personal
charms a barrel of glue would shine fti
a paragon of pulchritude. A tin of
canned salmon would.prove far more
useful to the heroine When she Is lost
on the sandy desert, or afloat on the
lonely raft In mid-ocean, than a comic
Irishman with a Coney Tslnnd brogue.
If she did not care to tackle It herself
she could feed It to the villain and tie
him up In ao many knots that It would
take a traction engine to straighten
htm out. And the dramatic possibilities of a barrel of glue are simply Illimitable. She could use It for sticking
to everything from thc angel cheelld
to, the papers proving her to be rightful
heiress to the old baronial home. When
the villain sprang upon her, hissing
out "At last I have you In my pow-
er-r-rl" she could paste him to tht
-xttchen stove and go out for a walk.
How would the band of Moorish brigands look If she stuck them all to tht
adjacent rocks by the slack of their
loose trousers, while the manly hero
went through their pockets? A dab of
glue on her wlndowslll when the murderer was creeping, knife In hand, Into
her lonely bed-chamber, would compel
him to stay there all night or com*
plete his crime In a costume which the
management would not stand for even
for a moment. And then how useful It
would be to help her to adhere to her
salary. It la true that they might hava
to soak the hero In hott water to get
him away from her. But'then he often
richly deserves to be soaked. In every
other Instance the faithful glue pot
could give cards nnd epides and little
casino to the most use ul comedian who
ever trailed the villain to hie lair.
These are only two nf thc Instance!
In which the use of inanimate object*
In the cast would Increase the novelty
of the drama. But thplr number could
be Indefinitely Incrensed. We have long
had the wooded ttor. Why should wt
stick at the im-nlmate tragedian?
Herein we have n bright Idea for tht
budding playwrights who have dramatized every book that has a circulation of over ten copies, until the principal /Blue we place on the dictionary
Is th fact that even the most ambitious of them have never used It as tht
basis of a romnntlc play. And wt
chnrge nothing for this hint tn dramatists. It la an absolutely free graft.—

The Paris police have prepared a pic*
ture-book tor the lilt ol travelers who
lose things whioh, because of unfamil-

all kinds of articles, from keys to purses,
and the enquirer, after mi-Hintr valuables,
has only to turn the leaves and point at

WHY GO 15AST
Over the suii-burncd, sage brush
nnd alkali plains, when you may
just ns will take n delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rooky Mountains in
view of thc grandest scenery nn tht
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,'.'
thc only transcontinental line puss,
ing through Salt Lake City, fileiv
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enrouto to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, in-
eluding free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion ears,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his gucBta. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided hy these excursions.

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two olements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, hut hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customerB will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

THE TORONTO
DAILY NEWS
AND THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
...FOR   ONLY.
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures havo, been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise nnd originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of 11.00 a
year by mail Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine hns
taken holdof the people, so,.we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
ho paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at 12.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
the . home anil district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see
the paper first, write us and we will
secure n sample copy.

The Race That Failed
James J. Hill, the railway president,
began his connection with the transportation business through steamboat-
ing, but he soon deserted it for sail-
reading, says the Saturday Evening
Post. The road which he has since
made so widely known was at that
time considered the slowest in the
country. Mr. Hill listened good na-
turedly to the fun that was naturally
poked at his road and worked the
harder to improve it.
Meeting Mr. Hill one day on the
street in St. Paul, "Diamond Joe"
Reynolds, of upper river steamboat
fame, said:
"Jim, I'll match one of my steamboats against one of your trains in a
fair race for $500 a side."
"Well, I don't know,'" hesitated
Mr. Hill; "some of your boats are
pretty fast."
"Come, I'll race you up stream,"
urged Keynolds-
"Oh, thunder!" returned Mr. Hill
in a disgusted tone; "if you're going to
stick to the river then you might as
well drop the notion of a race. I
thought you meant you'd bring your
boat out on the prairie alongside the
track and give me some show.''
