New Logging Machine     |
* What is expected to revolutionize;
the field work of the lumbering in-
dustry is a machine invented by twoi
Portland men. which, it is declared,
will reduce the cost of logging from
50  to   75 per cent, in addition to|
saving an average of eight feet tn the I
tree that is wasted under  the  present methods.
An equajly important function of
the device is the removal of stumps
in cutting over lands, and it is the
practical solution nf the perplexing
land-clearing question.
The machine is a simple piece of
mechanism, consisting of a gasoline
motor similar loa motorcycle engine,
to which is attached s drill opejated
at 60C0 revolutions a minute By
moving the drill back and forth it
cuts its way through a tree with
sueh rapidity that it will fall a Ire*
eight feet in diameter at the butt
within five minutes.
According to the inventors the
machine will fall and cut into logs
a tree at a cost of 25 cents for each
1000 feet. By the present method
of falling, it costs from 65c tn tl tn
do the work. Two men operating
the mnchint- can cut 400,000 feet of
logs daily, while under the present
system two men are able to cut nnlj
30,000 feet daily, declsie the inventors. The device can be so placed as
tn cut a tree at anv an_.lt"
By digging the earth Irom around
a tree or slump, the machine can be
operated at an angle to make the eut
from one to twn feet underground.
With the stump thus removed the
hole is Hnveied up and the ground
is restly fnr the  ilow.
Since public attention was focussed
on tbe naval issue and its underlying principles by the dramatic dead
lock in parliament, says an Ottawa
dispatch, the response to the Liberal
demand for an appeal to the country has exceeded the highest hopes
of those engaged in tbe struggle.
Telegrams by the hundreds, have
ponred Irom all parts of Canada to
the Liberal leaders and to tbeir followers, enthusiastically endorsing
the stand taken, and assuring them
thst the country is with them. Last
Friday Sir Wilfrid Laurier himself
received over two hundred telegrams
of this character, and it is significant
that the majority came from Ontario, where the Liberal defeat in
September of 1911 was most severe.
Several of these came from representatives of the farming and labor
ing interests. The old chief has been
suprised at the signs of reaction,
especially in the premier province,
and the eagerness manifested there
for a fight. Tbe only backdown
now must come from the Conservative side, and it is frankly admitted
hy many of the ministerial supporters tbat the party leaders made
s big mistake in getting into thc
present predicament. They are anxiously looking round for snme way
out that will prevent going to the
country and getting the - verdict of
tbe people at this juncture The
boasts nf tbree months ago are heard
uo longer.

A NOTABLE COIN
This Piece of Gold Has An Interesting
Record
Albert Almon, the well-known collector of Louisburg relics and other
articles of antiquarian Interest, showed The Montreal Gazette a French
Bold coin of 1730, worth probably between ?10 and $15 for the gold ln It,
aside fiora its historical interest,
which formed part of tho treasure In
u ship whlcth was lost shortly after
that date at Point Mlcheau, Richmond
County. Tho coin ls practically as
good as new and on one side bears an
effigy of the French King, Louis XV.,
with a small Hon rampart below, with
the Inscription: I-iid. XV. D.G. Fr.
et Nnv. Rex. On the reverse there
are the lleur de lis and shield, arms
of France and Navaree, surmounted
by a crown, and snrround<*d by the
Inscription: Chrs. Hegn. Vine. Impel-, with the date 1730. The initial
T below the heraldic device would Indicate tbat the coin was minted at
Toulon.
The history of this coin ls an Interesting one. About the year of the
first eelge of Louisburg, a French
gun boat left France with $7,500,(1000
of gold coin to pay the troops and
all other expenses which were standing for some time In Louisburg. On
nearing the Cape Breton coast a fierce
storm arose and drove the little ship
off her course towards Point Mlcheau (which name Is a corruption of
Poin Mlcheau, after this ship, which
was named St. Michael). The ship
stranded on u reef at Point Mlcheau
kuown as Gros Bos fblg rock). All
tile crew were lost. The gold was in
oak kegs bound with coppc:- or brass
hoops.
That the story of the loss of this
treasure ship was true was shown ln
the year 1900, when a big storm swept
over this shore aud a piece of oak
keel 40 feet long, with copper bolts,
r;i# ashore. Further proof was
given by Ihe finding of many gold
coins on the western beach, one man
finding six coins. This created much
Interest In-tho Point Mlcheau gold, so
that hundreds went there. The
beach was plowed and dragged, but no
more gold was got at the time.
The piece owned by Mr. Almon was
found last June and 'and owned by
Mr. Taylor. It was obtained through
Wm. M. Murphy of Point Mlcheau.
The coins were all of gold, dated 1725
to 1780. Mr. Almon states tliat in
his French histories mention has been
made of ships leaving France with
gold for Louisburg, and he thinks
that through further study the story
of this ship could be secured In full
detail in some of the histories or
from the French navy records.
Now Is thc morry season when the
family has to retrench because the
head thereof picked the loser twice'
A contrary man Is one who won't

A CIVIC GALLERY
Montreal Now Possesses a Handsome
Building for Its Pictures
A new era in matters artiBtlc in
Montreal has been inaugurated by the
opening of the Art Gallery Just built
by the Art Association of that city,
aided by generous contributions from
a few public-minded citizens. Nol
only will it mean a big "step in advance by those who have striven so
hard, and with so much success, to
make Montreal au art centre, but it
will make a substantial addition to
the attractions of the cily for residents
and visitors alike.
Up till now Montreal has had no
public picture gallery. Tho city is
peculiarly rich ln artistic treasures,
but most of them are either in private
collections or In the senil-prlvate collection of lhe Art Association.
The Art Association has hitherto
existed exclusively for its members.
It has had a certain social prestige
that has always been carefully maintained, notwithstanding that Its rules
and its fees have placed but little restriction on the qualifications for
membership. From time to time the
question of extending Ms usefulness
by giving the general public free access to Its galleries has been discussed, but It has always bcen felt that
this would destroy the essential character of the Institution, for whicli Its
leading members have worked hard
and made many sacrifices.
A year or two ago there came the
bequest of the famous Learmont collection of pictures by modern and ancient masters—a collection of almost
priceless value. One condition attached to the bequest was that the
galleries ln which the pictures were
displayed should be opeu free to the
public for two days In every week.
The bequest thus focused the question ot public privileges Into a crisis
ln the history of the association—a
crisis that was accentuated by the
fact that there was no room In the
old building in whicli to hang the collection.
The net result was a quickening of
Interest that ultimately determined
the council of Hie association to sell
the old Art Gallery—which being In
the centre of the shopping district
had greatly enhanced its value—and
to erect' a new building commensurate In size and dignity with the city
of Montreal. It was further decided
that this new Art Gallery should be
open to the public free for two days
in every week. Thus, when,-on December 0, the building was opened by
H. R. H. the Duke of Connaught, a
new and valuable centre for the elevation .of the public taste will be
placed freely at the disposal of the
citizens, while at the same time an
opportunity will be given them ol
seeing many of the treasures In private collections, for the most comprehensive loan exhibition ever held ln
Canada ls being arranged for tbe occasion.
The building Is on Sherbrooke street
In the centre of the most fashionable
residential district, and quite close to
the magnificent Rltz-Carlton Hotel,
now nearly finished. It Is of marble
throughout, much of the Interior fittings being of marble -quarried and
sculptured tu Italy. The huge'columns surmounting the steps at the
entrance are solid monoliths which
the architect claim are the largest on
the American continent. The design
inside and out, ls on simple classic
lines harmoniously blending Into an
Impressive and dignified whole. Inside a pleasant relief to the white
marble is afforded by balustradlng of
dull bronze and capitals and bases for
the columns of the same metal.
Perhaps one reason why the fool
killer is out of a job ie because he
soldiers on lt.
SAVE THE BABY
Baby's Own Tablets are the
one safe medicine to make
baby well and ieop him well.
They are guaranteed by a government analyst to be free from
all Injurious drugs und are absolutely safe to give even to
Ihe newborn babe. Concerning
them Mrs. Oscar Bedard, Man-
Beau, Que., writes:—-"I have
used Baby's Own Tablets and
have to thank them thut my little one is living to-day. I know
of nothing to equal them as a
children's medicine." The Tablets arc Bold by medicine dealers
or by mall at 25 cents a box

THRESHED HER
15 Long Yeart
''For over fifteen years," wrttes a
patient, hopeful little Ills, woman,
"while a coffee drinker, I suffered from
Spinal Irritation and Nervous trouble.
I was treated by good physicians, but
did not get much relief.
"I nevor suspected that coffee might
be aggravating my condition. (Tea is
Just as injurious, because lt contains
caffeine, the same drug found in coffee) . I was down-hearted nnd discouraged, but prayed daily that I
might find something to help me.
"Several years ago, while nt a
friend's house, I drank a cup of Postum and thought I had never tasted anything more delicious.
"From that time on I used Postum
Instead ot coffee and soon began to
Improve In health, so that now I can
walk half a dozen blocks or more with
ease, and do many things that I never
thought I would be able to do again ln
this world.
"My appetite Is good, I sleep well
and find life is worth' living, indeed.
A lady of my acquaintance Bald she
did not like Postum, lt was so weak
and tasteless.
"I explained to her the difference
when lt ls made right—boiled according to directions. She was glad to
know this because coffee did not agree
with her. Now her folks say they
expect to use Postum the rest of their
lives." Name given upon request.
Read the little book, "The Road to
Wellvllle," ln pkgs. "There's a
reason."
Postum now comes In concentrated
powder form, called Instant Postum.
It ls prepared by stirring a level teaspoonful ln a cup of hot water, adding
sugar to taste, and enough cream to
bring the color to golden brown.
Instant Postum Is convenient;
there's no waste; and the flavor Is always uniform. Sold by grocers—
45 to GO-cup tin 30cts., 90 to 100-cup
tin SOct's.    '

He Lacked the Agility
When Louis Cyr, the .famous strong
man toured the fall fairs around- Ontario back in the Nineties, his appearance ln Bruce County aroused
probably greater*interest than anywhere else. On one occasion when
he was. performing et the Kincardine
Fair, two Tiverton Scots watched his
exhibition with the canny reserve characteristic ot the race. After the big
feat—that of lifting sixteen or seventeen husky countrymen crowded on a
platform aud weighing ln tne neighborhood of two tons or so, thc larger
of tlie two Scotsmen observed to his
companion: Yon's a strong man,
Sandy." The other one, who was of
the wizened, drled-up variety of transplanted Highlander, weighing about
one hundred and twenty pounds, nodded his head: Yon's strong a' rloht, he
tald, but he ncter had tho 'agility that
I had.

' to, totally expel worms from the system. They may cause vomiting, but
thli need cause no anxiety, because u

work. No worms can long exist
where these Powders are used.
Helpful Idea
Do you think we ought to have women on the police force?
Yes; I believe It would be a good

TURKS     THREATEN      TO      SUE
POSTUM CO.
The Turkish consulate In this city Is
Indignant. Whether it ls because the
Turkish people have been called the
"most nervous people ln the world,"
or because the statement has been
made that they are "also the greatest
coffee drinkers ln the world,", ls not
clear, because the Turkish consul will
say nothing further than the Turkish
people have been libelled, or nearly
so.
The whole trouble came about because of an advertisement of the
Postum people ln which the statements already mentioned were printed,
and lt was added:
"See the point?" "Wo are not quite
sure we could help them, but Instant
Postum helps lots of people. "There's
a reason."
The Turkish, consul's office called
several newspaper offices on the
'phone, and said the advertisement
was "Silly," ridiculous, and threatened to bring suit In the courts.
At the office ot the consul, 65 Liberty street, a man connected with the
oflice, and. who acted for the consul,
said:
"We did telephone about the ad, and
have the matter under consideration,
but no action has been decided upon
as yet. A statement may be issued
In a few days."
"Will thero bo any court action?"
he was asked?
"There msy be. We haven't quite
decided. We can give you no further
Information Just now."—New York

ALL CAME FROM
THE SAME CAUSE
WHY     DODD'S     KIDNEY     PILLS
CURED MME. DUFAULTS ILLS
She Had Diabetes, Sciatica, Backache
and Hesdache but   Found   8ptedy
Relief in the Great Canadian Kidney
Remedy.
St, Boniface. (Special) .—After suffering for three years from a complication ot diseases, Madame Oot. Dufault,
of 84 Victoria-street, this city, ls onco
more ln perfect health and Dodd's
Kidney Pills are credited with another
splendid cure. Speaking-tit her curo,
Madame Dufault says-.
'Yes, I am again a well woman, and
I thank Dodd's Kidney Pills for lt. I
suffered for three yeara and I may Bay
I had pains all over my body. I had
sciatica, neuralgia and diabetes. My
back ached, and I had pains In my
head. I was nervous and tired all
the time: there were dark circles
around my eyes which wero also puffed and swollen, and heart fluttering
added to my troubles.
"But when I started to use Dodd's
Kidney Pills I soon began to get better. I took thirteen boxes In all, and
I think they are a grand medicine."
Every one of Madame Dufault's ailments Is a direct result ot diseased
kidneys. That's why Dodd's Kidney
Pills so quickly cured them all.
The witness on tho stand was being
subjected to cross-examination. In
answering the question he nodded.
Whereupon tho court stenographer
who could not seo the witness, demanded: Answer that question.
The witness replied:
I did answer tt; I noddod my head.
Well, I heard lt rattlo, but could
not tell whether lt was up and down
or from sldo to side, answered the
stenographer.
Thty Cleanse While They Cure.—
The vegetable compounds of which
Parmelee's Vegetable Pills are composed, mainly dandelion and mandrake, clear the stomach and Intestines ot deleterious matter and restore
the deranged organs to healthful act-
Ion." Hence they are the best remedy for Indigestion available to-day.
A trial of them will establish the
truth ot this assertion and dn more to
convince the ailing than anything that
can be written of these pills..   .

The Dog in the News
Kvery attentive reader of the
newspapers must have noticed the
almost daily appearance of the dog
iu the news. It hss been said that
three subjects are of, perennial interest to newspaper readers —love,
women and money. The dog is a
close fourth. He touches human
life at more points and more nearly
than any other animal. So the fre
quiint accounts of his inlelligenc-,
hi* bravery, his devotion in saving
people from drowning, from fire an-1
from burglars; his loyalty to Irs
master, his death from grief aid
even hie deliberate suicide, are rend
with avidity by all who really know
doits.
Not the exceptional dog, like i' e
one recently exhibited at various
universities, that dog has a viioab i
lary of over 300 word* and that do* s
all manner of impromptu stunts at
the, request of strangers, hut just the
common, ordinary dog, is full of
human nature. He has a sense of
humor and a.-ense of shame. Every
dog lover knows that there is no

Death of Pauline Johnson
The death of Mies E Pauline
Johnson has removed another tal
ented Canadian woman. She was
the daughter of a chief of the Mohawks, the most enlightened branch
of the Six Nation Indians, and was
endowed with Xhe natural dignity
and eloquenae which have heen the
distinguishing characteristics of that
proud and capable tribe. From her
mother, an Englishwoman, she inherited that profound regard for
British traditions and institutions
which was visible .in her lectures and
many of her literary works. She
was instinctively a child of the
Muse, at a very early age gave evidence of her L'ift, and as she grew
older her charming verse found a
ready acceptance in the prominent
publications of two continents. Tbe
pily of it is tbst on her the heavy
hand uf the destroyer should be
laid just as she reached the full
meridian m her powers.

As xoine lost melody returning stirs
The love of long ago;
And   through   the far, cool distance,
zephyr fanned,
Tne moon is setting into shadow-land.
Thu troubled night-bird, calling plaintively,
Wanders un restless wing;
The cedars, chanting vespers  to . the

Awaits its answrring,
That comes in wash  of  waves   along

(12°; lowest, 24°; mean, 42.6°, Rain-
fell on six days only. Snow on two
days. Frost wus registered on seventeen daya, and sunshine wus absent
on Hve days.
Taking into consideration the variety of breeds and strains coiiipeting.the
egg production for the month has
lieen very satisfactory. The yield averages a little better than 50 per cunt
for the whole forty pens.
The outstanding feature of the
month has been the performance of
pen 32 (Buff Orpingtons). It is true
that several records have been broken
this month, hut their yield of 140
eggs in 28 days certianly deserves
special mention. Appended is the
daily record for the month: 5, 4, 5, 5,

WHAT A REAL
TOWCML DO
Strikes at the Root ol Disease and
Gives New Health.
It yon look ln your dictionary you
will find the word "tonic" defined as
*a medicine that Increases the strength
and vigor of the eystem." That tells
why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a
real tonic. Thousands of men and
women are ailing to-day, not sick In
bed, but without strength and ambition, utterly tired out after a day's
work. No one organ seems to be at
fault, yet the whole system ls lacking In health. They do not sleep
well and are always tired and nervous,
many have headaches, backaches and
stomach trouble. All these people
need the tonic help of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. The beneficial Influence
of this medicine reaches the whole
system. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
do more than relieve the symptoms,
they, actually remove the cause of the
trouble. The case of Mrs. J. H.
Sharpe, London, Ont., ls one ln proof
of the above statements. Mrs.
Sharpe says:—"I was so run down
and weak that lite was a burden. The
least exertion would exhaust me so
greatly that I could hardly breathe.
If going up stairs, I would have to
rest several minutes when I reached
the top. My heart would palpitate
until I felt as It It .would choke me.
I was extremely nervous. In fact a
complete wreck, and would sometimes
have to remain ln bed for a couple of
days or more at a time. I found no
help from medicine until I began using Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and my
experience with them was that they
made a complete cure, I gained ln
weight and my friends tell me I look
younger than 1 did ten years ago—I
know I certainly feel younger. I feel
sure that what Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills have done tor me they will do
to other women if given a fair chance."
If you are at all unwell do not tail
to try Dr. "Williams' Pink Pills, and
you will find new health and strength.

A Singular Call
L
It Came From One Who Had
Seemed Ungrateful
By P. TOWNSEND SMITH
1 wns starling for tbe office ot the
Henderson Wrecking company, by
whom 1 wus employed as a direr,
when s boy stepped up to me and
knitted me u telegram:
Alec Is caught In ths Clapham reservoir.
Come quickly and set blm out.
MABEL.
1 ran for the station to take a train
for Clnphnni nud found one made np
tn Mart In twenty minutes. But It
seemed nn hour before I was rolling
out of (lie station on a flfty minute
trip. While I nm making It I will tell
how I conic to receive tbe telegram.
I received a common school educa-
-Hon. One dny In tbe school yard I
saw one of ibe boys take a doll from
• little girl, and, holding It by Its legs,
be smashed Ils cblna bead against the
html, sandy ground. 1 walked np to
tbe boy and without saying a -word
•lapped hk face.  Of course there wns
* light, st whicb 1 got ths credit ot
knrlug thrashed my antagonist. Out
tbls wns ratber because tbe boy I
fought whs In the bablt ot doing mean
things for no cause whatever rather
Hum for any advantage 1 gained over
fcltu.
The llllle girl whom I bqd befriend-
ed'surprlsed me alter Ihe fight by making n face ut me. Children are but nn-
grown men nnd women, and I suppose
say resenting hor HI treatment was like
Interfering In family feuds, for everybody knows ibat protection against
tyranny In the case of (hose who are
fund of each otber is liable to result
disastrously to the protector. Refraining from showing any feeling at tbe
girl's Ingratitude, I walked off with
my bands lu my pockets, whistling s
tune lo make It appear that It was a
waiter of no consequence.
Dining the rest ef my school days I
fend the mortification to experience the
111 w|ll of both this boy and girl, both
•f wbom seemed to bave taken a dislike tu uie. It was a period wben we
were passing out of childhood Into
youth, and for the several years remaining before we finished school
something nbout the glrl-1 knew not
what-was growing upon me. Her
treatment of me pained me—indeed, I
wuuld bare given my best tennis racket for a smile from ber. When onr
last term .at school was finished I found
myself In love with ber. True, I was
but sixteen years old and sbe fifteen,
but my experience ia the matter bas
proved tbnt tbe younger the person
tbe more violent tbe love.
it was very distressing for ine to see
• girl wbom I hnd befriended and
whom 1 loved not only showing repulsion for me, but lavishing ber admiration upon tb; boy wbose malicious
treatment of ber I bad punished. But
In matters of tbe heart ons never
knows wbat a womnn will do, sod s
n-u u Is not much more lo bo depended
npon. Be this as It may, I saw my
lore grow lo womanhood lavishing ber
■erection on the person who bsd out of
pure deviltry smashed ber doll. 1 think
tbat os s child ber turning against me
was natural. As a woman It mgy hsvs
bcen encouraged by my rival.
Kate threw tbs three ot ns together
■ot only-us children, but sfter wo bad
become men and women. Tbe girl 1
secretly worshiped married my rival,
■nd I attended their wedding, tbough
ratber, as her guest tban his, for my
Intimacy wss always rather with her
family than bis. There was a coldness
between me and bim that never wore
•IT. Whether bis betrothed snd afterward bis wife suspected my feelings
for ber I did not know. But 1 did
know that nfter her marriage she treated mo In a mucb more friendly manner ibiyi before.
About the lime wo flulsbcd school
■nd wore ready to go to work a ship
was sunk In the harbor on which we
lived, and divers were sent down to
put lbs chains under whereby to raise
ber. There can be nothing mors Interesting lo a boy than a man dressed
In a diving suit going under water,
while tbose above pump air down to
him. We boys wer* constsntly on
band watching Ibe process, snd the
consequence ot It all was tbat several
•f ii* determined to adopt diving as a
trade.
Tbls brings me lo my telegram.  It
wnin aiec was crossing ins mrt on
Us clothes wltb his bands.
Furthermore, there wss every resson
to believe that wbst I was called upon
to do T would do at tbe risk of my
life. If It were an easy matter to rescue Alec Granger I would not have
been summoned. I ssw In Mabel's telegram ■ cry for help lu her distress.
I can give no Idea of my feelings at
such a call. Let sny one reading my
ttory put himself ln my place and try
to conceive how be would feel. I can
•nl; ssy tbst among the confusion
Within me there was one predominant
sentiment -1 was eager to give com*
fort to ths woman I still loved by restoring her busband to ber.
Wben I reached Clapham I. found t
man waiting for ms at tbe station
with ■ carriage, ln which ws drove
at a gallop to tbe reservoir. On tbe
way he told ms that Granger bad been
sent down to examine the outflow of
wster from beneath and while doing
so had got caught In tbe powerful suction at tbe orifice through which the
flood was escaping. Air was being
pumped to blm, but It bsd not been
possible to draw blm up. Two different men bad been sent down to fix
about blm s rops strong enough to
bear his weight and overcome tbe suction, but neither ef tbem bad dared go
near him for fear of being sucked
Into the snme position as he. 'It was
upon this Information tbat I realized
fully that Mabel had called upon me
to probably sacrifice my llfs In attempting to save that of ber husband.
On reaching tbe scene of the trouble tbe group there all turned toward
me. Mabel was present, and wben
my eyes met hers I was at a loss to
understand, tbs expression tbere was
tn tbem. I had expected to see a pathetic appeal. Whether she realized
that such an appeal would be asking
ms to risk my own life, perhaps give
It, tor her husband, I did not know,
nor do I know now. She simply looked
at me. Perhaps" she considered ber
telegram an appeal which sbonld not
be repeated.
I put on a diver's outfit, snd a two
Inch cable was looped under my arms.
I vtns lowered some distance from the
hole through which the water was flowing and walked toward it till I began
to slightly feel tbe suction. I stopped
and ssw Granger lying partly across
the hole. After ■ few moments'
thought I signaled to be brought to
tbe surface. On reaching lt 1 called
for another two Inch rope-besides tbe
one under my arms-looped at tbe end.
I would bave preferred wire rope, but
It was not at band.
"What are you going to dor I was
asked.
"There's no wsy to save blm but to
go into the suction myself, place the
rope under his arm and signal you to
draw us both np."
"you'll both perish," was tbe response.
Mabel was looking st me, and my
was Intensely pannui, tmn unry un
stoutest rope could stand it Ws
moved so slowly that I would not hare
known we moved at all had I not noted
our positions ln relation to tbe masonry. Suddenly tbs upper part of our
bodies passed beyond tbo suction column of water, and tbe strain was perceptibly lessened. Tben it diminished
rapidly, snd we began to rise.
There was no shout when we reached
the surface, for lt was not known
whether we were alive or dead. Those
present soon knew thnt I lived, for I
motioned them to nttend to Granger.
When bis helmet was unscrewed bis
wife removed It Her bead dropped
on bis breast, and I knew that he was
dead.
No ons conld do enough for me to
show appreciation of tbe risk I had
taken to save a fellow man. Wben
Mabel and I parted sbe conveyed her
thanks by a pressure ot tbe hand without looking at me. 1 heard nothing
from ber and did not go to see ber for

Finally Bourchier and Hfs Mends
Destroyed ths Suit.
The English drama owes much to
Mr. Arthur Bourchier, who has been
one of the most influential actor-managers ior a number of years. He hss
portrayed all manner of roles, from
Shakespeare to very modern comedy,
•nd hia career has been as lengthy aa
it has been successful.
From his earliest years Arthur
Bourchier was stricken with stage fever. When a very small boy he wss
sent to a private school kept by a Dr.
Hawtrey, the uncle of Mr. Charles
Hawtrey. He spent the .greater portion of his pocket-money on toy theatres, in which he produced fearful
melodramas. Even at the age of twelve
he was noted throughout his native
place of Newbury for the zeal with
which he produced plays and charades
during his holidays, and all the boys
in the neighborhood were pressed in-
i> service for these dramatic triumphs.
I But when young Bourchier began
' to show signs of whiskers, his father,
Captain Bourchier, Informed him thst
his career was to be the army. Eventually a compromise was made by ths
father saying: "Go to Oxford—take
your degree—then you sball go on the
stage."
At Oxford young Bonrchier maintained his interest for things theatri-

form of nether covering,
"I think that there is no doubt that
within the next few years our dress
will undergo considerable changes in
style, color, and material. The manufacturers are sympathetic to the ides,
and already produce materials in
beautiful colors whose only fault is
that they are a little in advance of
the courage of men. Whst we wsnt is
pioneers, individuals with a little courage who will not shrink at the idea
of wearingy a green waistcoat simply
because it is green. Pioneers are always hard to find, of course, but they
are coming. There has been an enormous change towards brightness in
the lsst ten or fifteen years if yoo
only think of it. Take such things
as socks and underclothing, the garments that are hidden. Ten years ago
they were all of the "all-wool" variety, without color of any kind. Now
look at socks and undergarments—
they are produced in the meet beautiful colors. Go into the chambers of

as much as women, but they do not

"And, above  all," concluded   Mr.
Bradley, "let it be understood that
this is not a plea for what we used to
cail the 'masher' and what is now
called the 'nut.' We want color and
brightness, but we want it all in harmony and taste."

ties, they were in no mood for protracted toil. In Lord Brampton's own
words, "Judges and counsel- were exhilarated, snd business was proportionately accelerated." In confirms-
tion of this he notes that these "slter-
dinner' trials "did not occupy, on an
average, more than four minutes
apiece," and, in illustration, cites an
actual case, the paltry nature ol
which, contrasted with the enormity
of the punishment involved, throws s
lurid light on the inhumanity of the
times.
The case was that of a pickpocket,
in which the prisoner had, inconsider-
ately, pleaded "not guilty,!' and,
therefore, had a right to be heard.
We may quote Lord Brampton's ao-
count, beginning with the examination of the witness for the prosecution
by the prosecuting counsel:
"I think yon were walking up Ludgate Hill on Thursday, the 25th, about
2.30 o'clock in the afternoon and suddenly felt a tug at your pocket snd
missed your handkerchief, which ths
constable now produces?"
"Yes, sir."
"I suppose you have' nothing to ask
him?" says the judge. "Next witness,"
Constable stands up.
"Were you following the prosecutor
on the occasion when he was robbed
on Ludgate Hill, and did ynu see the
prisoner put his hand into the prosecutor's pocket nnd take his handkerchief out of it?"
"Yes, sir."
Judge to prisoner: "Nothing to say,
I Buppose?" Then to the jury: "Gentlemen, I suppose you have no doubtf
I have none.
Jury: "Guilty, my lord."
. Judge to prisoner: 'Jones, we hsvs
met before.  We shall not meet again
for some time.  Seven years' transportation. Next case."
Time: Two minutes, 53 seconds. As
this seems to be a "record," it is only
fair to add that the judge's name was
Muirhouse. Verily "nous avona
change  tout cola."
