Department of Agriculture
Will Continue Its Educational Work
The department ol agriculture, in
accordance witb its policy of education, will continue the fruit packing
schools ae inaugurated two years ago
and extended last winter. Tbe five
schools, with a total attendance of
120 pupils in the spring of 1910,
grew to a tola! of thirty packing
schools, With a total attendance of
3>S5 pupils in the spring of 1911
These schools proved very popular,
and bave undoubtedly filled a great
need in the districts in which they
were placed. The decision of the
department to continue its praviou-
policy and to extend the seii a ol
schools to cover every district
will, it is expected, meet with tl e
approval of the fruit growers It is
hoped that this year schools will In
placed iu every fruit district of tin
province where a sulKcieut numbei
of pupils can be secured.
The expert instructors who were
secured for tbe previous years, we
are glad to say, will be in charge
this year. A comparison of . thi
class of instruction furnished hen
wilh that of Oregon, and Washington, has demonstrated lis elliciene \
lor the purposes of meeting al
modern competition in fruit packing
The standing and experience ol th.
instructors secured, and the coiifi
deuce reposed in Ihem hy the de
pertinent of agriculture, guiirunUi
to the fruit growers the highest pus
sible class ol instruction.
The policy of placing the local
administration of the packing schools
in the hands of a responsible local
body, euch as the Farmers' Iusti
tute, tbe Fruit Growers' association.
or the board of trade, haa proved
entirely satisfactory, and the samt
plan will be continued tins year.
The department of agriculture
provides the instructor, and pays his
expenses. The department will alsn
bear the cost of the packing paper,
tbe fruit, and all otber legitimate
expenses, except that of secretarial
work and of hall rent, which it has
been found most satisfactory to
leave to local arrangement.
The responsible organization in
each case will he required to guar
antee a minimum of twelve pupils,
but not more tlmn fifteen, with the
proper qualifications, at a fee of £'.'.
each, to take the twelve lessons of
two and a half hours a lesson, the
school extending over one week. In
a limited number of districts a double packing school can he arranged
for any in which the minimum
guarantee will be twenty-four pupils, hut uot more than thirty, for
the same number ol lessons. Tbe
guaranteeing organization will also
arrange for and bear ihe expense of
tbe hall, its .heating and lighting.
The ball for fifteen pupils must be
at least thirty feel hy fifteen feet,
nnd well lighted. It must he heated
price. About three boxes per pupil
is necessary. The hardier varieties,
sucb at Ben Davis and Gauo, are i
preferred. Fruit must be in good
condition, but need not be graded,
and nonesuch run under 2j inches
in diameter. Organizations should
at once secure the necessary fruit,
or, if none is now available, the department should be expressly noti-
iied, and will then procuie snme.
The instructor will bring with
him the necessary packing tables
and fruit paper. On his arrival, he
sbould be met by some responsible
person, who should provide him
with all necessary information, so
as to get the school under way with
nut loss of time.
The advantages of packing schools
1. Principally, practical and thorough instruction in actual commer
Dial packing. Each pupil is en
.aged in actual packing under the
p raonal supervision of an instructor
who knows and can teach commer
id packing.
2 Pupils will learn tbe methods
in equipment used in up-to date
ond progressive associations in picking, grading, wrapping, packing and
handling of fruit.
3 Instructions will he given in
i he proper marking of different sizes
a id grades of fruit,  and the   inter
.relation of the Fiuit Marks Act.
4. Packers whom the instructors
uive a score of 75 efficiency in the
picking school, nnd who put up n
C ■ -(limbic pack tbe following year,
.vill he entitled to a diploma certifying the snme, from the department
>f agriculture.
5. Fruit growers not attending the
school regularly, may visit the
packing school to secure infornia-
lion, at tbe discretion of the instructor.
6. An evening meeting can be arranged, at which the principal features will he the following: (a) Packing demonstrations, by tbe instructor; (b) packing contest, by the pupils; (c) fruit judging, botb in plat, a
an I boxes of fruit, hy all present;
(d) a general discussion on tbe Frirt
Mirks regulations, tha ii.arking of
boxes, fruit handling from the
orchard to the car, packing house
equipment,  etc., by the instructor.
The demand for packing schools
is already evident, and, oa it may be
necessary to start operations in - December, districts wishing lo avail
the-nselves of this opportunity
sbould send application as soon as
possible to H. H. Winslow, provincial horticulturist, at Victoria.

falls below 'i'i. degrees there is dan

Venner was emphatically of.the sumo
view; personally, he wns exceedingly
clad that the knot liml heen cut in
this Cushion und that thc unpleasant
business was ended. Ho discussed the
matter thoughtfully us he and the latter walked In the direction of his
rooms, for he had refused to spend
the night at Merton Orange, though
Vera" of necessity, had arranged to
stay there.
"I suppose one ought to be thankful," he said, "that matters are no
worse. Still, nt the same time 1 express that I should like to have a few
words with Zary. I wonder It we could
got him to take us back to Mexico
with a view to exploring the Four
l'lnger Mine. After all aaid and done,
It seeniB a pity that that rl.h treasure
house should be lost to the world." •
"Better leave It nlone." Gurdon said.
U makes me creep when 1 think of it.
All the snme, 1 am with you ln one
thing. I should certainly like to seo
Zary again.."
Ourdon and his companions were destined to have their wish gratified sooner than Ihey had expected. Thcjy let
themselves Into the farmhouse where
they were slaying, and Venner turned
up the lamp in tho big rambling sitting-
room. There, half asleep in n chair
before the fire, sat1 the very man
whom tbey had been discussing. He
appeared to be heavy with sleep—his
melancholy eyes opened slowly as he
turned them towards the newcomers.
"You have been thinking about me."
he said—"you have heen wondering
what had become of me. We ure
strangers and yet we are not strangers. Mr. Vender is known to me, and
Mr. Venner's wife also. I was awave
that my dear young mistress was his
wife when It wns a secret to everybody else. You are puzzled and mystified over the death of Mark Fenwick.
Mr. Ourdon hus been reading an account to you from the newspaper."
"You are certainly a very remarkable man," Gurdon said. "As a mutter of fact, that Is exactly what I have
been doing. But tell me, Zary, how
did you know?."
"You havo ii great poet." Zary said,
calmly and deliberately. "He was one
ot the noblest philosophers of his
time. I huve read him; I hope to
read hiin again many times. His rfame
Is Shakespeare, and he says 'therfrare
Now, don't you think we can begin to
forget all about this kind of thing?
Surely, we have had enough horrors
und mysteries, and I can only wonder
how those girls bore up against all
their troubles. Tell me, what are you
going to do? I mean as to your future?"
"Upon my word, I really haven't
given lt a thought," Venner snid. "It
Is not very often that 'a man has the
unique experience of being married
three years without a honeymoon, and
without more than half un hour ln his
wife's company. You can but feebly
guess, my dear fellow,, how terribly
I have suffered during the time to
which I refer. Still, I trusted my wife
Implicitly, though all the dictates of
common sense were against me, and
I am sincerely happy and glad now
that I took the line I did. As soon as
possible, I intend to take Vera away
for a long tour on the Continent. When
I come back I shall have the old house
done up again, and, I suppose, settle
down to tbe life of a country gentleman. But, of course, I can't do anything till Beth's future Is settled. I
suppose,* for the present she will go
hack again to Le Fenu'3 doctor friends,
pending her marriage with Charles
"The programme Is all right." Gurdon said. "But, suppose Lord Merton objects to the arrangement?"
"I don't fancy he will do that from
what I hear," Venner said. "All the
Evors have been wild In tbelr youth,
and the present lord Is no exception
to the rule. Depend upon lt, he will
be very glad to have his son back
again, happily married and eager to
become domesticated. Besides, from
what I understand from Vera, her father worked the Four Finger Mine to
considerable advantage during bis lifetime, and Beth Is something quite considerable In the way of an heiress. On
tbe whole, I am not disposed to worry.
Now, let us have one quiet cigar, and
go to bed like a pair ot average respectable citizens."

and so he Is finished with."
There was a pause for some time
until became evident that Zary had
no more to say. He rose to his feet,
and was advancing In the. direction of
the door, when Guidon stopped him.

Many Believe That Nothing Short of -

Thc agony caused by the Intense
Itching, the depressing and debilitating effect on the system, the dread lest
surgical operation might be 'necessary—these are the things which
make piles or hemorrhoids so distressing.   '
The doctors have heen recommending surgical operations as the only
cure. But the surgical operation, with
nil Its dangers mul expense and pain,
does not usually effect a lusting cure.

Steel in the West.
Settlers, coming Into Canada net.
..•pa.1- will have at (heir service many
miles ot new railway lines for truns-
pcitetlort into new- sections of the
prairie provinces, In Saskatchewan
alone the Canadian Pacific Railway
has at present under construction
nearly six hundred miles of new
branch lines. Hundreds ot gangs of
laborers and track-layers are at work
lu various parts of the country, and
surveyors aro at work mapping out
other llrxw ln all parts of the province. As fast as these lines are completed and Inspected regular services
are being inaugurated, so that when
the yearly laish of new settlers to the
West stints, next spilng, there will be
plenty ol new territory opened up.
Th* largest of the new lines In Susk-
ateliewan being built by lhe 0. P. Ills tliat between Regina nnd t'olonsuy.
This line iuns almost directly north
Trom Keslna until Craven Is reached,
wheti It branches' off In n westerly
direction to Winnipeg—Edmonton
line, lt is 13:; miles from 'Colnnsay
io lteginn und on this, a service will
shortly be Inaugurated between Colonsay. and Imperial, a distance of 49.7
miles. South of Imperial track-lnyitig
has advanced another twenty-five
miles. This line passes through u
splendid farming country whicli will
be thickly settled before long.
Another of the new C. P. H. branch
Hues In Saskatchewan of over a bundled miles ln length Is that between
Outlook and Kerrobert. Tills ia really the middle division of the Moose
.IttW-Macklln branch. Services hnve
been operated for some time between
Macklin and Kerrobert and Outlook
and Moose Jaw. but there are still a
number of miles of thc middle division to be built. When it Is finished
tlie entire branch will be 2G7 miles
long and will eventually form a Junction with the Lacombe—Castor branch
at Kerrobert. This new line will be a
great boon to all classes in Saskatchewan for not only will tbo tanners
along tbo right-of-way benefit, hut lt
will give tbo towns and cities, ln Its
territory, direct new connection with
the main line of the Canadian Pacific
to Moose Jaw, Regina, Brandon, Winnipeg, Minneapolis, St. Paul and
\ third hig branch under construction is from Weyburn to Lethbridge.
Up to March nf this year track on this
line had been laid as far as Omega,
fifty-two miles from Weyburn. There
Is now a through service between
Weyburn and Omega. On -the rest of
tho Une from Omega westward grading was commenced In Msy of this
year and up to last month fifty per
cent of It luid been completed up to
miles sixty. This line when completed
will permit of a new route from Portland, Oregon, tb St. Paul, Minneapolis,
Chicago, and it will also open up a
very fertile country.
From Swift Current there are being
built two branches, northwest and
southeast. Both of these branches
were only started three months ago
but on eaeh fifty per cent of the grading Is now completed. The first named branch will give good transportation facilities to the farmers near the
South Saskatchewan River.
There arc also two branches being
built from Wilkie. Ono ot thess
branches reaches out In a northwesterly direction and the other In n south'-
westerly direction. On tlio former,
which Is 3(i miles long there is 73
per cent of the grading completed,
while on the latter out of hi miles
there Is 15 per cent of the grading
finished. The Southern branch from
Wllklo will he further supplemented
by a branch running from Kerrobert,
ln a northeasterly direction. With
these two brunches completed, transportation facilities for the formers In
the country through which they pass
will be unsurpassed, and they will
probably prove n big factor In the
Inducing of new settlers to locale In
that locality. This branch from Kerrobert, northeasterly, will bo twenty-
five miles long. Up to date eight
miles of grading have been completed.
On the Estevan, northwest branch,
there nre fifty-five miles of new track
under construction. This branch connects with the Weyburn—Letlibildge
branch at Forward. On Regina—Bul-
yeu branch, 42 miles, track-laying has
been completed and a service will
shortly Uo instituted. On the double-
Hacking from Paequa to M00M Jaw
eighty-five per cent of t.ho grading Is
completed but no steel baj as yet
been laid. About equal progress has
been made on tbo double-track between itlooso Jaw and arnn.

The salary question ia the
latest war cloud to make its
appearance in the local horizon. The ratepayers, some
years ago, expressed their disapproval of paying salaries
to aldermen, and the mayors
during the past seven or eight
years have magnanimously donated their services to the
municipality. As the duties
of the present city officials
have not been of a more arduous nature than in former
years, there is no reason why
they should not display the
same magnanimity, especially
as the city is as much in need
of money aow as it ever was.
If the impending controversy over the salary question
serves no other purpose than
to awaken the citizens to the
importance of taking a deeper
interest in municipal affairs,
it will not have been raised
in vain.
Ald. Lequime and Downey
have placed themselves on
record as opposed to a salary
bylaw. The latter gentleman
says he intends to fight it to
the end. We expoct to see
the honor roll grow.
The salary bylaw should be
referred to the sanitary department.
Nelson now counts that day

"And the governors said,
Why, what evil hath He done?
But they cried out the more,
saying, Let Him be crucified.
"When Pilate saw that he
could prevail nothing, .but
that rather a tumult was
made, he took water, and
washed his hands before the
multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just
person; see ye to it."
The city band is no doubt
an admirable organization. It'
has been liberally subsidized
by the municipality. The city
purchased the instruments,
furnishes the band-room, and
has made a number of appropriations for music. In return for these favors, the
band has given but one open-
air concert, and in its dealings
with the citizens it is notoriously biased. We have no
grudge against the band. We
merely wish to remind it of
the fact that fair play makes
the best kind of music.

Your Money Back If You Are
Not Satisfied With the
Medicine We Recommend
We are so positive that onr remedy will permanently relieve consti-
pation, no matter how chronic it
may be, that we offer to furnish the
medicine at our expense shpuuld it
fail to produce satisfactory results.
It is worse than useless to attempt
to cure constipation with- cathartic
drugs. Laxatives or cathartics do
much barm Tbey cause a reaction,
irritate, and weaken the bowels and
tend to make constipation more
chronic. Besides, their use becomes
a habit that is dangerous.
Constipation is caused by a weakness of the nerves and musolm of
the large intestine or descending
colon. To expect permanent relief
you must therefore tone up and
strengthen these organs and restore
them to healthier aclivity.
We want you to try Rexall Orderlies on our recommendation. They
are exceedingly pleasant to take, being eaten like candy, and are ideal
for children, delicate persons, and
old folks, as well as for the robust.!
They act directly on the nerves and
muscles of the bowels. They apparently have a neutral action on other
associate organs and glands. They
do not purge, cause excessive loose
ness, nor create any inconvenience
whatever. They may be taken at
any time, day or night. They will
positively relieve chronic or habitual
constipation, if not of surgical variety, and the myriads of associate
or dependent chronic ailments, it
taken with regularity for a reason
sonahle length of time. 12 tablets,
10 cents; 36 tablets, 25 cents; 80
tablets, 50 cents. Sold in Orand

The Beautiful Picture for Grand Forks Sun and Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star Subscribers
this Season.  ^An Inspiration of Love and
Affection—<^4 Picture that will be like a
Member  of  the  Family—A  Daily
Study for Old and Young
'PHE Family Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to he
I the greatest and best family and firm paper on the continent, has nn
many occasions given its readers most delightful premium pictures,
but this season they have secured what il beyond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper reader., It is entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful inoideut between two friends
who meet after anxious separation.
■'Laddie," a collie dog, (anions for his beauty and gentleness, winner
ol many prices at dug snows, the pride ol the family and neighborhood,
has been stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in bis struggles for freedom dangling Irom his collar.
His familiar bark brings bis little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
sbe throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
whicfl bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
wbine.'which in his dog language means—"Where 1 love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager hoy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, ber affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture thai will win a favored place
on the walls ol any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. l'.lsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture ''Horns Again" on b*?«vy !>•"'• paper 22x29
inches all ready tor framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Star for 1912.
The small sum of 81.50 will secure the two papers for a full year in-

easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact il could not he bought at tbat price.!

Importance   Recognized
"Uo you think that man really appreciates the Importance of tlie office
id which we have elected him?' said
one foils'Ituent.
"1 guess ho does," replied the other.
"The first thing he did was to any
tt ought io command a larger salary.-'
An eminent scientist, the other day,
gave his opinion Hint the most wonderful discovery 61* iccotit years was
Uie discovery of Zam-Buk. Just think!
As soon as a single thin hiyer of Zam-
Btil: is applied to a wound or sore,
such injury is insured against blood
oolson! Not one species of microbe
has lieen lound thut Zam-Huk does
not kill!
Then again. As Boon ns Zam-Buk Is
applied lo a sore, or u cut, or lo skill
disease, li stops the smarting. That
'ts why children uie such friends or
Zam-Uuk. They care nothing for the
science of the thing All thry know is
that Zam-Buk stops their pnln. Mothers should never forget this.
Again. As soon ns Zam-Buk is applied to :t wound or to a diseased part,
the cells beneath tlie skin's surface
ere eo stimulated that new healthy
tissue Is Quickly formed. This forming or fresh healthy tissue from below
Is Za.m-I.iuk'.. secret of healing. The
tissue thus formed Is worked up to
the surface and literally casts off the
diseased tissue above it. This Is why
Zam-llul. cures are permanent.
Only 'the oilier day Mr. Marsh, of
101. Deloj-imler Ave., Montreal, called
iil.oit Ihe Zam-Buk Company and told
them thnt for over twenty-five years
he lin.il been a martyr to eczema. Ills
hands were at ore time so covered
with sores -that lie had to sleep in
gloves. Four years ago Zam-Buk was
Introduced to him, and ln a few
months lt cured him. Today—over
three years after his cure of a disease
he bail for twenty-five years—he is
Btlll cured, and lie lias had no trace
or any return ot the eczema!
All druggists sell Zam-Buk at Mc.

How to Build up Health and Strength
- After Wasting Disease
When th" system is run down following attacks of fever, Ia grippe, or
other wasting diseases, Dr. Williams'
I Pink Pills are of speclnl value. They
niake new rich blood, which reaches
'every organ and every nerve In the
body, and In this way restore the
l'mtloni to active" health .and, strength.
In proof of this we give tlie case of
Mrs. James Randall, Silverstrcnm,
Siidk., who says:—"1 feel that If there
is anyone who ought.to testify to the
Imeilts of Dr. Willinms' Pink Pills lt is'
[myself. About four years ago I was
[taken down with typhoid fever which
(left me ln a very weak state and my
stomach so impaired tliat even a drink
of milk would cause me pain. To
make ninlteri worse the change ot life
followed, and although I was under
Ihe care of one of our best doctors,
1 was steadily growing worse. Before
1 Was sick I had often read of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, but thought no
more aboui them. Hut now when I
was sick nnd helpless and almost
hopeless, and with no benefit coming
from medical treatment, I kept thinking of Ihe Pills and finally decided to
try them. I did an and I am thankful to
ihe able to say that they restored me
to health and strength, and enabled mc
jto pass through that trying period,
ifrom which so many poor women
emerge wilh shattered health. I hope
that many nlhcr poor sufferers mny
read this statement and take fresh
courage from tt. as I nm sure that
what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
done for me. Ihey will do for others.
1 may add that I always keep Dr. Williams' Pink Pills In the home, and feet
lliut they arc better thin a doctor."

Funny   Llttlt   Welsh   Town   Whtn
Sexet Havt Chtnged Places.
Thers is Iti Pembrokeshire, Wales
a little town called Llangwm, which,
were it not for an exceedinglj
strange custom, would never in thi
wide world attract any more attentiot
than any other community ot litth
stone cottages and old world flsherlolk
Ot Flemish origin are the inhabitant!
ot Llangwm and in all the town men
man no longer holds sway aa head o'.
the household, nor is he compelled U
earn his own living.
If a likely youth and il arrived at
an age—not necessarily oi discretion
—and size that enable him to maki
himself useful about the house it
cooking, washing, cleaning, bed making and such other duties as usuallj
are discharged by the weaker sex, hi
is approached by some maiden win
has "laid eyes on him"; a few wordi
are spoken, perhaps kisses inter
changed, and the bargain is completed. Such embarrassing duties ai
"asking ma and pa" and those incidents peculiar to courtship in othei
localities oro quite unnecessary at
Llangwm. The marriage ceremony ii
of the simplest character, and no suet
thing as a honeymoon is allowed. Thi
youth settles himself down to his Iiii
job and is happy so long as he doei
not become entangled with the head)
of the other households.
The Llangwm maiden is an expert
flsherwoman. She rUea early and
braves all weathers. She not only
catches her fish but sells it in the
neighboring towns. She is usually
stronger than the average champion
oarsman and cau row with almost ai
much skill.
Of course the wife is the chancelloi
of the exchequer in this strange community. As she earns tlie money, she
naturally feels competent to spend it
to the best advantage. Indeed, thc
husband, known among fish wives at
"my man," is not considered sufficiently elevated to buy his own Sun-'
day clothes. Thc flsherwoman queen
selects euch garments as may suit hei
taste, and irom her decision there it
no appeal.
In religious matters Uie Llangwm-
itns are extremely straitlaced.
Dancing, card playing, novel reading
are absolutely barred. No intoxicating liquors can be obtained in the
place and ior years inhabitants have
revolted against tlie opening ot an inn
In the house conversation is not allowed during meals, and although
newspapers are sometimes brought iu
they are hidden away from .Saturday
night until Monday morning. The
villagers look askance at all strangers
picking their way along the narrow
street and stigmatise them ss foragu-
Fishing by Ut.
From Appledore (Eng.) the salmon-
boats pull out every day at this time
of the year, each with its huge mass
of nets piled in tlie stern, and mantled
by a crew of four. Tbey go down the
estuary just aa me flood tide begins
pouring in over th* great wastes of
golden sands that stretch across from
Westward Ho! eastwards. About a
score ot boats tn all work from Appledore and the other villages at the
mouth of Taw and Torritlge, and it
might be supposed that the crews
would quarrel tor the possession of
the best places to cast their nets.
But they never do so. At the beginning of each season—that is, in
March—the owners of thc boats meet
together, and au equal number of num.
bered slips are put into a hat, and
drawn, ln this way the place ot each
is settled for the season.
A boat does not stick to the snme
spot all through the season, lt Hshus
tor two tides from ono bank, ami
then changes over to tho other side.
Very large fish arc sometimes caught
iu this estuary. There is a record ct
a salmon of sixty-seven pounds. A
boat thinks itself lucky it it gets two
fish at a haul.
The price which the boatmen re'
ccive for their catch is usually Is. Id.
a pound..
A Lightning Freak.
The marks left by lightning on a
boy of 18 were described at a recent
inquest at fiattersca, England. The
medical attendant stated Hint the electric current seemed to haw* entered at
thc right side of thc back of thc lund,
cut a long, deep gash around tho rignt
side ot tne neck, and then to have
taken a zigzag courso down und
around tlie chest, passing down thc
riglit leg and out at the great toe.
A bullet like jagged hole marked the
point of i mergence, while the too was
turned perfectly black. Tlie cranium
was lacerated, a burn ou tho throat
showed where Uie collar stud had
been, and tree-like Impressions were
left on the thighs. DeAtu resulted Irom

Sir Thomas Moore, Bart., Whose Family Hat Com* Upon Evil Days, la
One of the Queerest Characters In
Romantic Ireland and Until Ht
Married a Scottish Womtn, Mils
Elphinttone, Ht Wat Well Known
on Streets.
Ireland lias never lacked quaint and
romantio personalities. Sir Thomas
Moore is the owner of what must uol
be described as a mushroom title, lt
did not grow in a night nor was il
conferred on him for any political
service. Sir Thomas is no mere \
knight, lie is a lull-Hedged baronet,
but aa in the caso ol many oi the
Irish aristocracy his title did nol
bring with it any ol the rich thing!
ot this world. 8o Sir Tliomas Moore,
Bart., was obliged tor quite a number ot years to resort to thc expedient
of hawking coals lor a living in the
streets ot the Rebel City, where he
became a conspicuous character.
Sir Thomas' finances could not even
reach the dignity of tho usual horse
and trolley, mostly adopted by coal
hawkers in Cork streets. A donkey
and barrow had to suffice, snd froui
this barrow the baronet weighed out
coal from 14 pounds upward to the
democratic citizens of his native town.
There was however some satisfaction to Sir Thomas iu feeling that
his poor customers enjoyed the unusual honor ot being Bcrved in this
way by a real man of title, wliaj
lr-oieover never manipulated the
scales to the disadvantage of the buyer. They said he was a real "barrow
knight." a
Titles to Irish men of honor have
often proved to be more of an impediment than a source oi income, and so
it has proved in the case ot Sir
Thomas Moore. No consideration, linancial or otherwise, ^..u.u induce him
to lend his authority to wild-cat
schemes where his name might be au
attraction on the front pag3 ot a company promoter's prospectus. Even the
nn Thomas unoaa.
blsndisliments ot American snd English heiresses, anxious to annex a
title, who Haunted their money bags
in the face ot this i-ipc-eunious baronet, failed for a considerable number
of years to move him Irom the position he hod taken up ot earning a
modest living by tlte obscure occupation oi coul hawker.
An amusing story is related ol an
Knglish society woman who came to
Cork with tlie hope ot persuading Sir
Thomas lo abandon bachelorhood. She
invited lum t'a dine witli her at »
local hotel. Thc burouet left his donkey and barrow round the next block
and put in an appearance at tlio hotel
covered in coal dust and with all thu
other traces of his occupation thick
upon him. In spite of that, the Isdy
was out lor a title aud was willing to
take Sir Thomas to the nearest Kegis-
try lajffice, but l.u amount ol beguiling or fascinating glances could soften the bachelor hesrt of the aristo-
crstlo etal dealer. "l*hu eame, slin
