Irrigation is Chief Item in Legislative Bill of Fare Presented in  Speech from Throne.  Vernon, B. C.  Beyond forecasting the enactment  of legislation governing the distribution of water for irrigation purposes,  the enactment of various pension  clauses in connection with the civil  service act, the speech from the throne,  delivered by lieutenant governor  Dunsmuir at the opening of the house  contained nothing new. The speech  referred to - . the prosperity of  the province, the success of the negotiations of the government with the  G. T. P. and the bountiful harvests of  fruits and other products.  The day was cloudy and threatened  rain so that the crowd attending the  opening of the third session* of the  eleventh legislature was not as large  as in other years. All the members,  but five weie in attendance. J. H.  Hawthornwaite, Nanaimo, will be~pre-  sented to the speaker later on.  The house adourned until 2 o'clock tomorrow.  - lb isrumored that W. H. Hayward,  M. P. P. for Cowichan, will bo the new  Conservative whip, to   succeed   Hon.  Thomas Taylor, now minister of public  works.  The finance minister presented the  public accounts for the past fiscal  year. The minister of'education presented the thii-ty-seventlv annual report of the public schools. The attorney general introduced the first bill of  thc session, entitled an act to amend  the Magistrate's act, the sole provision  of which is that hereafter magistrates  .will make quarterly returns to the  attorney general as well as to the  provincial secretary.  The minister of education, also presented the first report of the free text  books branch of the department of education. ...  '--- -,   ;���������  The public accounts show that the  total revenue of the province for the  past fiscal year- was $5,979,054.96V and  the total expenditure $3,686,349.96,  leaving the handsome- surplus of  $2,292,705. The chief source of revenue  was timber, the total coming from that  source by way of. leases, licenses and  royalties, amounting to $2,332,609.72,  an increase of over- a million over the  previous year's revenue from the same  source.  WIKELESS SAVES  APPALLINGDISISTER  S. S. Republic  Rammed and  Sunk by the Florida.  C. P. R. REACHES OUT.  x\EARLY 2000   LIVES   IN  PERIL  Until "Wireless Brought Aid���������Dense  Fog Caused Accident���������And Made it  Difficult for Rescuers to find Survivors  On Saturday hist about 200 miles off  the coast of Massachusetts the S. S.  Republic with 761 on board collided  with S. S. Florida, on which, besides  the crew of 200, were 900 refugees from  the earthquake disaster in southern  Italy. The collision occured in a dense  fog and it was at once apparent that  the Republic would go down. The  wireless operator on board the Republic sent out the emergency call  which is recognized in wireless circles  as the ambulance call of the sea, and  soon the land stations as well as other  ships caught it, but were unable for  hours to*"reach the scene of the collision or to find them after they reached  the vicinity. Meanwhile the Florida  took off all on board the Republic, but  was herself in peril nnd required other-  craft to stand by until all danger was  past.  It anything was wanting to insure  the pass.age of the bill before congress,  to compel all passenger-carrying craft  to equip with wireless, this certainly  should supply it.  Also the new invention held by  United Wireless for locating boats in  a fog should be added to the compulsory equipment.  Benefits to be Derived from  Control of  Wisconsin Central  The transfer of the control of the  Wisconsin Central Railway company  took place to-day at the Carnegie  Trust company. Newman Erb and  associates, who some time ago acquired options on a majority of the  company's stock paid for these securities to-day. The deal involves between  $4000,000 and $5,000,000. Tlie directors  of the Wisconsin Central road will  meet to-morrow when several members  of the board including president Bradford will tender their resignations.  Their places will be taken by men  friendly to^ the new owners. It is  understood that the Wisconsin Central  will hereafter be, operated in the interests of the Minneapolis, St. Paul  & Soo road which is controlled by the  Canadian Pacific railway. - The Wisconsin Central runs from Chicago to  St.Paul and gives the Canadian Pacific direct connection over its own  and subsidiary lines between Chicago  and Vancouver.  GENERAL NEWS  The   C. P. R.  have struck   natural  gas at Medicine Hat.  Winnipeg   is'   putting   all  wires underground.  electric  i  PRINCETON WEDDINGS  WEST FORK LOOKS WELL.  Sally    Gets     out      Three    Car-loads.  Progress   on   Bell Tunnel  The past fortnight has been one of  special interest in Princeton, two  weddings taking place.  As contracting parties are well  known in Hedley the Gazette in joining congratulations with friends reproduces the following notices from  the. Star.  BRIDGE WHIST MATCH  Hedley   Leads   Keremeos   in   Friendly  Match of Bridge.  As announced here last week a team  of'bridge players went to Keremeos on  Saturday last and engaged the players  there in a match game with the result that Hedley had a safe lead of  1562 points.  The Keremeos players were Mr. and  Mrs. J. A. Brown, Mr. H. A. Armstrong and Miss Ferguson, and Mr.  R. H. Carrnichaeland Miss Armstrong.  The Hedley players were Mr. Gladden  and Miss. A. Maclean, Mr. H. A.  Hinks and Mrs. Whillans, and Mr. L.  G. MacHaffie* and Miss Myrtle Maclean.  The match was played in three  periods allowing.each pair to be pitted  in turn against each pair of the opposing side.  Each pair of Hedley players led in  the first period which gave a substantial portion-of tho win and the game  for tlie balance of the match was  more closely contested.  The Hedley players.were all loud in  their praises of the hospitality received at the hands of the. Keremeos players, every attention being paid to  their comfort and entertainment.  It is understood that a return match  is to be played in Hedley in about a  month from now in which time tlie  rigor of winter should be pretty well  over.  .   .HUGHES-RUTHERFORD.  ���������Last Thursday e veni ng at the Presby-;  terian .manse a quiet wedding was celebrated by the Rev. J. Thurburn-Conn,  the   high contracting" parties   being  Thomas-Sidney Hughes and Mrs. Ada  Josephine Rutherford,, both of Princeton.    Mr. and Mrs.  MaeFadden  supported the bride and groom throughout the beautiful and impressive ceremony after which  the joyous couple  departed   for their happy home accompanied by  best wishes and congratulations of   the company.   They  were received at their home, Endclilfe  Avenue, by Mesdames Sykcs and Huston and a little later a large concourse  of friends arrived offering congratulations and making merry over this  the  second great event in life.   The  bride  and groom have many sincere friends,  with whom the Star joins   in  wishing  much happiness and prosperity.  WARDLE-LVALL  "At the residence of J.;G. Macdonell  on Monday, 16th inst., by Rev. J.  Thurburn-Conn, George E. Wardle to  Margaret Grace Lyall. In the forgoing sentence record is made of a  momentous event in the lives of two  of our popular young citizens. The  groom has been a resident ot this section for many years, being a pioneer-  in the business of which he is now  junior partner. In social and political  circles he, is held in esteem, always exercising his influence for the welfare  of tlie town and the country as a whole.  "The bride   has many friends  with  whom tlie Star unites in extending un  (Greenwood Ledge.)  F. F. Ketchum of Beaver-dell is  spending the week in Greenwood.  Mr. Ketchum says the high-grade  properties now being worked on  Wallace Mountain'are looking better  with every foot of depth. The Sally  will ship three cars of ore this winter  and the Bounty Fraction one. The  tunnel on the Bell is progressing  rapidly, and it is expected the vein  will be encountered about three hundred feet from the portal. This will  give a. little better than a ��������� hundred  feet vertical depth on  the vein.  TIMBER REGULATION  B. C. Lumbermen Want some Changes  Made by Government.  Fred Fraser, a prominent timber  limit owner of Revelstroke, informed  the Province that leading up-country  lumbermen were to have an interview  with Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister of  works, in order to urge changes in the  timber regulations with a view to  securing greater security'"'of'-title in  connection with timber leases. The  millowners feel that the provincial  government should go a .step further  than to guarantee, licenses for a.period  of more-than 21 years. They realize  that the present government does not  contemplate any policy of confiscation  after the expiration of the 21 years  period, but realize that future administrations might adopt a vastly different policy.  During a visit to England last year  for the purpose of selling timber limits  Mr. Fraser found that he was handicapped by the existing regulations.  All the financiers he met entered  objections, claiming that British capital would not be invested until the  government amended the timber laws.  In one or two instances people who  had brought limits in this province  were anxious to sell and actually gave  him options on several large tracks.  PENTICTON   ELECTS    COUNCIL  (Special From Gazette Correspondent)  The  first    election    for    Municipal  council in Penticton was held on Monday last.  At the nomination held  week  previous, the   honor of  being Penticton's  first   mayor   was  tendered  to  Alfred  Wade and accepted by him.  The result of the polling on Monday  last  was   the  election  of the follow-  feigned and soulful wishes for tlie" joy I inff gentlemen as councillors :  and prosperity of the happy couple.  The groom was supported by J. R.  Campbell, the bridesmaid being Miss  Nora. Lyall, sister of the bride."  The Great Northern Railway will  inaugurate a through train service  from Galveston, Texas, to Vancouver,  B.

'���It is an open- secret that Mr.

"Before-resigning his position

A FAITHFUL SERVANT
The death of J. Lome McDougall which followed a serious attack of paraly.-is, at his
home in Ottawa, has removed a
faithful public servant who for
over a ..quarter of a century discharged a. most important public duty.
He was Canada's'first auditor
general being appointed to that
"office during the   McKenzie, regime in   the  middle  seventies,
and although he   was   tlie'"first
to  hold the  office  it was not
created . for   him,   but ..rather
might it be said that it  was  he
who was created for the office,
aud the  need   has  never  been
questioned.      Both   the    office
and the appointee will stand as
monuments   to   the candor  of
Mr. McKenzie, no matter what
timkering may   henceforth  be
done to annul the effect.     Had
there been no  attempt  to  loot
the treasury in that day,  there
would have  been  no  need  for
the office;  but  there  was, and
the full powers given by parliament    to  the  Auditor-General
showed the  measure of candor
which  Mr.  McKenzie put into
his work,   for  to  the Auditor-
General was given the power to
refuse    payment   of   anything
that had  not been  authorized
by parliament and to publish as
fully as   he  deemed necessary,
at the  public  expense,  any  or
every detail of public  expenditure      So    well   did Mr.   McDougall discharge the duties of
his    office  that  he  earned  for
himself the name of -'watch-dog
of the Treasury."
The  Nelson  News in  its  reference to the deceased says
"Thirty years ago premier
Alexander Mackenzie found
himself besieged by the grafter
element in his party. As a
measure of defence he brought
in a bill authorizing the government to appoint an independent
aud-tor gener.al with full-authority ore;- tlie outlays. Mr. Mackenzie looked around for the
right man to fill the place, and
chose Mr. McDougall, then a
liberal member of parliament.

HEDLEY, B. C.
FOSTER'S WEATHER REPORT
IT A good stock of Horses and Rigs on
Hand.    H Orders for Teaming
promptly attended to.
Hon. li. L. Borden at the first
conservative caucus held this
session, precipitated the question of leadership by proposing
that the question be dealt with
at a caucus which he would not
attend, but the caucus would
hot entertain the proposition
and re-affirmed their intention
of sticking to the old leader although Mr. Borden protested
against having the question
disposed of so summarily.
When times were prosperous
about two years ago or more,
J.J.Hill was the first to sound a
note of warning, and when he
did so, he was subjected to more
or less ridicule for indulging in
needlessly alarming views.
Nevertheless a storm did come
and those who had shortened
sail in due time, were the ones
who rode it out the more safely. Those who look back now
over the past three years cannot but admit that Mr. Hill
knew what he was talking
about. The circumstance is
calculated to boost his reputation as a financial weather
prophet and it is encouraging
now to note that he is ready to
risk another prediction for the
early return of brighter times.
On his return to New York last
week after an inspection of the
Great Northern system he is
reported to have said :
"There is plenty of money in
the country. 'There has not
been so rapid a recovery as
some people looked for, but
that is just as well. There was
a great deal of damage done
last year and it takes someitime
to complete the' work of repair,
But it is going on steadily.
Perhaps the most noticeable
thing is the increase of building
operations."
Washington, 13. C, Jan 23.���Last
bulletin gave fore, casts of disturbance
to cross country J sin nary 18 to 22;
warm wave 17 to 21 ; cool wave 20
to 24. This disturbance was expected
to cause warm weather in lower Mississippi valleys, a cool wave and
blizzard'in northern states and Canada, causing very low temperature*
north of parallel 40.
Next disturbance will reach Pacific
coast about 22, cross Pacific slope by
close of 23, great central valleys 24
to 20, eastern states'27. Warm wave
will cross Pacific, slope about 22, great
central valleys 24, eastern states 26.
Cool wave will cross Pacific slope
about 25, great central'valleys; 27,
eastern states 29. .- ���   ���
This   disturbance   will cause

THE
high
temperatures, a great rise from the
low'temperatures ' preceding, and the
cool wave following will not. bring
very cold weather nor much precipitation. About and immediately following Jan. 23 greii t energy will develop all storm features, and severe
storms may be expected.
First disturbance of February will
reach Pacific coast about Jan. 29,
cross Pacific slope by close of 30, great
central valleys 81 to Feb. 2, eastern
states 3. Warm wave will cross Pacific slope about Jan. 29, great central
valleys 31, eastern states Feb 2. Cool
wave will cross Pacific slope about
Feb. 1, great central valleys 3rd, eastern states 5.
Indications are*that about the last
of January all storm features for all
sections of the country will change,
the storm centre crossing the continent well to northward, and the cool
waves far southward causing relatively
warmer weather in northern states
and Canada than in the southern
states. On eastern part of the continent the cold will cover nearly all the
country to the Canadian line.
The storm forces will develop great
energy from Jan. 23 to middle of February, and dangerous storms are liable to occur at any time. Trend of
temperatures will be upward till
about first of February, and then
downward till after middle of February. General forecasts of February
weather will be given in next bulletin.
T expect dangerous storms from Feb.

Ranchers in the Similkameen who  had a,good crop of potatoes last year  :arid housed them safely in the old-time  root house, stand to clean up some  money on them, for much damage was  done by frost, and potatoes are likely  to go high before the new crop comes  in.  During the cold snap daily papers  both in the interior and on the coast  had despatches dated from Phoenix  giving grossly exaggerated reports of  the minimum readings at Hedley..  Now why should Phoenix arrogate to.  itself the right to send out weather  reports for Hedley ?  A very handy pocket diary is that  got out by Laird <fc Lee, of Chicago.  It is of convenient pocket size and besides the diary, has a fund of useful information which marks it a veritable  time-saver, and a convenient feature is  a patent arrangement for postage  stamp and ticket holder.  W. H. G. Belt, of Montreal, inspector of the Bank of B. N. A. is iii town  this week inspecting the Hedley branch.

The unfortunate canines did  not understand the situati.-.n an.l most  of them would lie on thier backs a.ud  kick the ozone with thier frozen pawv,  while they howled like a Swede  learning to talk Gaelic.���������Le.i'go.  ���������The editor .of the press has disregarded Shakespeare's maxim "That a  young man married is a young man  marred" and has taken unto himself a  wife as the scriptures put it.  The announcement in the last issue  of the press was. somewhat startling,  as immediately under a short description of the wedding at Vancouver,  one read "Earthquake shocks at the.  coast." Whether.these had anything  to do ,.with the wedding or not,'I have  not yet been able to ascertain.  One thing I do know arid that is���������-  there was almost an'earthquake shock  in Penticton when w'e got our Presses  from the post office tied up with  white baby ribbon.',  Penticton has taken, unto itself the  dignity of a municipality and at present is in the throes of an election.  Nominations for reeve and councillors closed at two o'clock on Monday  when there being no other nomiria-  tions.the returning officer declared A.  H. Wade elected reeve by acclamation.  Mr. Wade is very deserving of the  honor awarded him; not only is he the  oldest timer in the district, but the  writer has always found him the one  man to give time and money to further.any. cause beneficial to the town.  On behalf of the Gazette I must congratulate the people, of Penticton on  their choice of the first reeve.  The following are nominated for  councillors viz:���������John Power, L. C.  Barnes, S. Hatch, Henry Murk, Norman Hill and L. A. Rathven. I think  it very probable that four out of the  fust five named will be elected.  There are eleven in the field to fill  the five places as School Trustees and  as they arc all pretty likely men it is  hard to make a forecast.  L. W. Shatford. M. P. P., left for  Victoria on Tuesday morning to attend the opening of the Legislature.  There are several posrtrons to be  filled on. the staff of the new municipality andif the council only exercise  the same judgment in the. filling of  these as the voters have in the selection of reeve they will have cause to  congratulate themselves all the time  they are in office.  Men who have never done a single  thinyf tor the town in the past  have suddenly come to light and are  engfiged at present in boosting themselves; for office. I hope the council  when making their selection will consider tlie claims of men who have  worked for nothing to make the town  what it is today, before those of the  pr Sessional office seeker, who is usually never to be found when anything  wants doing.  ������  ������  ������  ������.  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  s  ft  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ���������������������������������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������,  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������.  ������  ������  ������  ������.  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  f  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  ������  :Mkiai2MU������2BEEZEZ3mB&Wy*ZZ&l&i!W^  WE MUST reduce our stock before the  the 15th of February, on which date  we commence our annual stock-taking, and in order to do this we are  going to make  This is positively the Biggest Bargain Sale ever  attempted in the country.

ITH OF...ROYAL BABY.  QUEER   CUSTOMS   FOLLOWED  AT  SPANISH COURT.  Diplomats   and   Nobles".Wait   to   Sea:  Thai:  Changeling    is    Not   Substituted���������Crowds   Await   Hoisting   of.  Royal    Ensign���������Number   of   Guns  In Salute Announce Boy or Girl���������,  Queen's   New  Palace.  The  birth   of  a  Spanish prince   is  hedged    round   with   many   strange  ceremonials,    some   of    which   must  . form a trying ordeal for a girl brought  up amid the surroundings usual to a  high-bred  English  family.    Etiquette  prescribes  that   a  crowd  of. eminent  personages shall be in attendance to  await  the   birth.    Representatives  of  the  aristocracy   and   of  the  political  and diplomatic world gather together  in ah  adjoining apartment,  and,  accompanied   by  the   ladies-in-waiting,  wait to  greet the  latest addition   to  the   royal   family,   arid   also   to   bear  witness  that no  attempt is made to  palm off a chan.cjli.ng upon the nation.  "When at last the child is born it is  carried by the Mistress of the Robes,  on a gorgeous crimson velvet cushion  and covered by priceless lace, into the  presence, of the grandees and handed  to   the   Prime ^Minister.     The   latter  carries it round  the room for all to  see  and .then   returns   the   precious  burden to the Mistress of the Robes,  who in her turn restores the mite to  its royal mother.  Outside, on the Plaza de Oriente, a  huge crowd of the people await expectantly but light-heartedly, for the  broad bands of red and yellow with  the royal escutcheon to flutter in the  breeze, and to count the . number of  guns which boom forth their salute.  Twenty-one guns announce a boy.  The news is flashed all over the  kingdom, and the "Te Deum" is sung  in all the cathedrals. One of the first  of the numerous official messages is  that dispatched to the Pope, asking  him to act as godfather. The Catholic  Church requires that the christening  shall take place at the earliest possible moment, so that generally within four Jor five days at the most, the  'royal baby ha.s to go through, its.  second public ordeal.  Some of the rules 'of ancient Spanish etiquette die hard. Among these  is that by which everything in Madrid counts by nine days. . For instance, after a death in a family, the  Novenariomust take place; the widow  and daughters, or whoever the nearest surviving relations may be, are  expected to hold the Drielo���������that is,  to close their windows and remain  solemnly for nine days' in their reception rooms to receive the condolences of their friends, who visit them  in mourning. As it is the correct  thing for all to repeat their visits  daily during this period, though the  first two or three times they are subdued, it is impossible to remain so,  and the party insensibly glide into a  degree of gossip and chatter which  is not quite becoming to the occasion.  The advent of an English princess  at tlie Spanish court has resulted in  great improvements in the gaiety cf  the  palace,  where .those in  constant  attendance had found the atmosphere  somewhat  dull.     In . the   days   when  the  Queen-Mother   (Queen  Christina)  reigned as regent evening dress was  unnecessary,   but  under  Queen  Victoria  Eugenie  a general  brightening  of social  life  has  taken  place.    The  smartest frocks and the best of family  jewels only are displayed, while full  dress is always worn in the evening.  Innovations    are    seldom   popular,  and   the   stately   dowagers,   recalling  the different state of Queen Christina,  complain of the disturbances to which  their declining years have been subjected.   Queen Victoria Eugenie, however, is quite the vogue, and her musical  parties,   card   parties,   and   court  dances   are  enjoyed  very    much   by  those    members   of    Madrid   society  who  are  sufficiently  sprightly  to recognize the right of youth to   social  relaxation.  While music and bridge help to  pass many evenings at the Spanish  court, her majesty has also introduced the English custom of afternoon  teas, and delights in paying surprise  calls at four o'clock. At first this  somewhat embarrassed the senoras,  but now that they understand the  amiable young Queer requires nothing more than a simple welcome they  are delighted, and even enjoy the  " departure from the requirements of  Sprnish etiquette.  In the country no less than in the  capital the English Queen has had a  marked effect in each case, the modification or change establishing an  improvement. At La Granja, where  the royal family possess a beautiful  palace and the accouchement has  taken place, there existed a rule that  the Queen had to spend two hours  daily in the gardens of the palace  accessible to any who cared" to visit  her. Happily for the safety of the  young couple. Queen Victoria Eugenie  has discarded the custom and made  the famous palace merely the private  pleasure ground of the royal family.  Many alterations have been mad������  in the interior economy of the palace,  which was exceedingly insanitary.  Defects have been remedied and the  electric light has been installed, and  the residence, with its magnificent  gardens, world-famous fountains, and  many valuable treasures, is now a  merit charming retreat.  m  When you can get a good lot on the best residential streets  at from $200 to $250 on easy terms of payment.

Hoisting of  Royal Ensign���������Number of Guns  In Salute Announce Boy or Girl-  Queen's   New   Palace.  The  birth  of  a Spanish prince   is  hedged    round  -with   many   strange  ceremonials,    some   of    which   must  form a trying ordeal for a girl brought  up amid the surroundings usual to a  high-bred  English  family.    Etiquette,  prescribes   that  a  crowd  of , eminent  personages shall be in attendance to  await  the   birth.    Representatives  of  the  aristocracy  and  of  the  political  and diplomatic world gather together  in an adjoining apartment,  and,  accompanied   by  the   ladies-in-waiting,  wait to greet the. latest addition   to  the  royal   family,   and   also   to   bear  witness  that no  attempt is  made  to  palm off a changling upon the.nation.  "When at last the child is born it is  carried by the Mistress of the Robes,  on a gorgeous crimson velvet cushion  and covered by priceless lace, into the  presence of the grandees and handed  to   the   Prime   Minister.     The   latter  carries 'it round the room for all to  see  and  then   returns   the   precious  burden to the Mistress of the Robes,  who in her turn restores the mite to  its royal mother.  ��������� Outside, on the,Plaza de Oriente, a  huge crowd of the people await expectantly but light-heartedly for the  broad bands of red and yellow with  the royal escutcheon to flutter in the  breeze, and to count the number of  guns which boom forth their salute.  Twenty-one guns announce a boy.  The news is flashed all over the  kingdom, and the "TeDeum" is sung  in all the cathedrals. One of the first  of the numerousr official messages is  that, dispatched to the Pope, asking  him to..act as godfather. The Catholic  Church requires that the christening  shall take place at the earliest possible moment, so that generally within four or five days at the most the  royal baby has to go through its.  second public ordeal. .  Some of the rules 'of ancient Span-;  ish etiquette die hard. Among these  is that by which everything in Madrid counts by ;nine days." For instance, after a death in a family, the  Novenario must take place; the widow  and daughters, or whoever the nearest, surviving relations may be, are  expected to hold the Drielo���������that is,  to close their windows and remain  solemnly for nine days in their reception rooms to receive the condolences of their friends, who visit them  in mourning. As it is the correct  thing for all to repeat their visits  daily during this period, though the  first two or three times they are subdued, it is impossible to remain so,  and the party insensibly glide into a  degree of gossip and chatter wliich  is not quite becoming to the occasion.  The advent of an English princess  at the Spanish court has resulted in  great improvements in the gaiety of  the palace, where .those in constant  attendance had found the atmosphere  somewhat dull. In the days when  the Queen-Mother (Queen Christina)  reigned as regent evening dress was  unnecessary, but under Queen Victoria Eugenie a general brightening  of social life has taken place. The  smartest frocks and the best of family  jewels only are displayed, while full  dress is always worn in the evening.  Innovations are seldom popular,  and the stately dowagers, recalling"  the different state of Queen Christina,  complain of the disturbances to which  their declining years have been subjected. Queen Victoria Eugenie, however, is quite the vogue, and her musical parties, card parties, and court  dances are enjoyed very much by  those members of Madrid society  who are sufficiently sprightly to recognize the right of youth to social  relaxation.  While music and bridge help to  pass many evenings at the Spanish  court,'her majesty has also introduced the English custom of afternoon  teas, and delights in paying surprise  calls at four o'clock. At first this  someAvhat embarrassed the senoras,  but now that they understand the  amiable young Quee.i requires nothing more than a simple welcome they  are delighted, and even enjoy the  departure from tlie requirements of  Sprnish etiquette.  In the country no less than in the  capital the English Queen has had a  marked effect in each case, the modification or change establishing an  improvement. At La Granja, where  the royal family possess a beautiful  palace and the accouchement has  taken place, there existed a rule that  the Queen had to spend two hours  daily in the gardens of the palace  accessible to any who cared'to visit  her. Happily for the safety of the  young couple, Queen Victoria Eugenie  has discarded the custom and made  the famous palace merely the private  pleasure ground of the royal family.  Many alterations have been made  in the interior economy of the palace,  which was exceedingly insanitary.  Defects have been remedied and the  electric light has been installed, and  the residence, with its magnificent  gardens, world-famous fountains, and  many valuable treasures, is now a  most charming retreat.  When you can get a good lot on the best residential streets  at from $200 to $250 on easy terms of payment.  ������r  Now, during the quiet months, you might be building a  small house for yourself without much outlay.  ^  Call in and see what we can do for you.

J������-10  The promised development of aerial  navigation has brought out the fact  that the public have no more right to  trespass on private property in the  upper air than on the earth's surface  or in the deep strata of soil or rock.  The ownership of real estate, extends  from the centre of the. earth to the  outmost bounds of space. Our titles  presume to give the owner possession  of a part of the universe in the form of  a pyramid with its apex at the centre  of the earth and its base away beyond  the stars. This the owner holds  against all the world, and no one has a  right without his permission to tunnel  through this pyramid below the surface, to walk in it on the surface, or to  string wires, swing bridges, or sail on  aeroplanes or balloons through it at  higher levels. This principle of  measuring real estate is often made  the basis of legal decisions.  First Class  in  Every  Respect.
