FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 1904
Now that the city election is over,
and the old council is about to go
out of power and the new one come
in, there are all sorts of rumors ns to
the policy of thc new regime. Some
who appear to be on the inside track,
say that the city will be thrown wide
open, and that all'kinds of vice and
gambling will be tolerated; others
say that gambling will be allowed
under restrictions, while there are
Btill others who believe that the city
will remain as it is with regard tn
the gambling policy. Sizing up the
standing ofthe new council] there is
nothing to lead one to believe that
any radical change will be made in
the city's government. Three of the
past year's aldermen have been reelected, and tbe three new members
nre intelligent nod practical men,
and there is every reason to believe
that the city's affairs will be handled
in a moral, businesslike way during
the coming venr.
Alex Miller returned yesterday

He will remain in the city for a few

H. Kellaher, arrived in tho city,

the business affairs of the late P. H.
Kellaher. •

N. B.-Themornliifr light Is the hest'for
Children's picture* this time of the year.
Anecdotal.
Queen Victoria, on her last trip to
Italy, visited a church at A.isisi, where
ehe met a very devout monk, who escorted her through a chilly corridor. Hia
bead was shaven, and ehe asked him if
he did not feel the draughts, wearing
the tunsure In the way his order did.
His reply was not in Italian, as she ex-
pected,-but in perfect English, tinctured
with Celtic brogue: "No, madame. 1
don't suffer at all in that way. You
know, we Irish are a hot-headed race!"
The long-suffering disposition of the
London Bobby is well known. Once upon a time, however, an old lady buttonholed one of these obliging officers of
the law and proceeded to put to him a
etring of questions compared witli
which the Shorter Catechism simply did
not amount to a circumstance. Finally,
having exhausted her stock of queries,
she asked: "Why do you wear that
funny sort of strap under your chin,
constable?" "That, madam," he replied,
gravely, "Is to rest our jaws when they
get tired of answering silly questions."
Howard Paul says that on one occasion William J. Florence, at the end of
a not very prosperous engagement in
San Francisco, announced a benefit for
himself and his wife. The late John W.
Mackay happened to be in town at the
time, and wrote to Florence for one or* ■
chestra seat. It was duly sent, as a
matter of course, and Mrs. Florence remarked to her husband that, considering the friendship existing between the
two men, she thought Mr. Mackay
might have taken a private box at*least.
"Walt," said Florence, "he has not paid
yet, and I am in no hurry." Tbe benefit
took place, Mr. Maekay came from Virginia City to occupy the seat he had
taken, and a day later he sent Florence
a cheque for $1,000.
A woman waa charged the other day
In Paris with shoplifting, to which Bhe
indignantly pleaded not guilty, her contention being tbat it was a case of mistaken Identity. But the judge,' who waa
a, wily old gentleman, addressed her fcfl
follows: "I understand, madam, that
you contend that the detective is altogether wrong In thinking that you are
the lady who attempted to remove a
variety of articles under cover of a cape?
■And yet the description which is given
of her ,exactly corresponds with you,
(Reading) i 'A young lady, tall, striking, and remarkably handsome, lustrous
eyes, a perfect figure, small feet and
hands, exquisitely dressed—tu "Stop,
Monsieur le Juge," exclaimed the young
lady, with a far-away look in her eyes,
"I plead guilty."   "An!" said the judge.
Talleyrand used to excuse his marriage with a woman so lacking in tact
and sense on the ground that clever women might compromise tbeir l.usUnda,
whereas stupid women only compromised themselves. One day i.enon, the
famous Egyptologist, dined with the
Talleyrands. M. Talleyrand instructed
his wife to read Denon's books. She
dutifully went to the 'iofary- but ou tbe
way forgot the name. die wuld only
remember she wanted the book of a
famous traveler whose name ended in
"on." The librarian •-'ave bar "Robinson
Crusoe." Mme. Talleyrand read the
book, marveling that a jjraat vraveler
»uld write such an interesting work.

•uddenly exclaiming: "Mon Dieu, mon-

The historian Freeman had. always
ieen a very regular attendant at church
•ervices, and knew almost all the Psalms
by heart. Sometimes, according to Professor William Clark, he gave evidence
•if ihis knowledge in a manner savoring
.lightly, of irreverence. Writing of Dean
Alford in tbe "Saturday Review," to
ivhich he was a frequent contributor, ne
made a reference to the copiousness of
the dean's contributions to the pcrioji*

he said, seemed incapable of abstaining

Psalmist, and saying: "I kept silence.

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the Work and promptness in
tiie 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, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requiretnents of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesBon in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

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
thc Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
'months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of 11.00 a
year bv 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 thc dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price ut which it is sold, but
mainly upon thc intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unifjue features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
the home and district news, and
the big 12-pngc dailv keeping you in
touch with events ail over the world.

Misdirected Zeal.
A clergyman somewhere by the sea
has expressed hie displeasure be-
sause some of the women who
tome to hit church have fallen into a
lummer habit of coming- without their
"at*. Be has cited St. Paul aa his authority for declaring from hla pulpit
that women ought to keep their heads
iovered ill church. They certainly look
rery nice with their heads covered ns
am- church-going sisters are wont to
cover them, but it seems reasonably
doubtful whether St. Paul, if he had been
managing a seaside church in the United.
States in this year of grace, would have
thought it expedient to raise this question of millinery. In the matter of women's headgear the times have changed
very much, and in nineteen hundred
years both the cost and the distractive-
ness of women's hats have momentously
increased. It was the fashion In Orien.
.tal Galilee In St. Paul's time fer women
to keep their heads covered in public
places. So is it the fashion here now,
but circumstances alter cases. That our
Women have recent)*' consented to take
off their hats in the I Ilea ten has been
hailed as a merriful concession, but the
theaters are as public as the churches,
and no reason suggests itself why what
is good form in the one place shouldn't
be good form in the other.
Moreover, in summer some of our
grown girls are just now disposed to go
about bareheaded. One sees them so in
automobiles in town, and in the streets
of the country villages. Why object, if
they like It and think their complexions
will stand it! It is in tne interest Of
economy, and some people think it is
{;ood for the health, too. It is a pass-
ng quip, and bound soon to yield to
freckles and ton, and when it does so
yield the practice of dropping into
church -without a hat will gd with it.
St. Paul himself could well distinguish
between essentials and inessentials, for
after setting forth his views about cor
end heads for women and tor men, doe-
he not say, "But if any man seem to' b
contentious we have no such custom
neither the churches of G>d." Whic!
waa saying in effect that, after ail, th.
question wasn't wortii dUfratiiig over.
A kindred question baa come up—,-
the papers say—iu Vermont, where 1
young woman who expects soon to 1.
married objects to promising to obey he:
future husband, and has been looking fo
a clergyman who will leave "ubey" on
of the marriage service- which is to nml
her a wife.   She has found one, but n
In her own church.   All the same,. It wl
make little practical difference wheth
she promises to obey or not.  If she ma.
rles a man worth obeying she will oh.
at a pinch, and be glad of Ihe chum-
Tha husband still ranks as the head ol
the family, and though cases are amount where he is not really In command
the happiest families are those in whine Is equal to his job.   It is not am
word of Scripture, or law, or a proml-i
In the marriage service that makes the
husband  tbe  senior and ruling partnci
but nature and tbe force of clrcum
stances.
Moreover, the fear which some younv
women have of. having to obey a hu-
band is just a bugaboo.  As things tun
out there is division of responsibility
and therefore of authority.   The wil
has her realm and rules in It.   The hit-
baud takes her orders in mstters und-
her control, and she his tn some oth<
matters, and over other    matters sti
they consult and agree upon a cour>.
Of course a bossy husband is objectior
able, but a bossy husband is apt to be
good deal of an ass, and no young w
man ought to marry a man who is r
rood deal of an ass unless the exigency ;
pressing and the can   positively do Ik
better.—"Harper's Weekly."
