1 don't think my last note hurriedly
written  win* a. fair fulfilment of  my
■promise to semi you a letter, and 1 will
now endeavor to help tho lust one out.
I. am the more inclined  to do so as
now our long Journey .Is ovcr and-we
haive smelt tlhe salt water again at St.
John, the eastern terminal; and1 a "fs.T
-cry from  Vancouver,"  as wc ^ Scotch
say.    I forget where I waa wlii-Hl
wrote my last, but thlnlc It -was North
Bay.    A<t any rate  we-.'had"'splendid
meetings   at   almost   every point we
■were Wiled at.   Hat Portage was ono
•exception, and ns we'were 15 or rather
more liours going from' Winnipeg to
thiit place, and took two hours to crawl
over ionise bridge, I could  not help
wondering If all these delays were for
our'benefit.   Any way, It .got us into
the home of  Messrs.'. Pope und  Shaw
after 11  o'clock at  night,  and  so  the
goodjieople of that stirring burg did
not hear, the 'address, "'Wilson' on  the
lEdicts of the Pupe," e;tc.   However
NO 1
a; I all the noise, but I 4*211 -you when
tl-«"j(S maritime provlnoe people talte

I f«\;l that now Uhe Journeying Is dune,
tliere is nothing to regret, and from
St. John to Vancouver tlhe bund of
steel of the <_.■' P. Ut. is not «o strong
as the bund of Jove connecting our
C. IV R. muintcnanue-of-way-men with
.each other and with their chief. And
for all the weary work done by ine in
trying to bring this about. «nd to realize for our .good girls and boys their

I will writo again
The Main Object    ,
of our trip was accomplished, and  we
met our own ibrave fellows and 'hud a
good time.    Then on .to Fort "Wlllia'.i,
and all our other stopping points, and
there   was  no  mistaking  tl_e  pleas.iiigj_,
fact that everywhere Uie public gave
our. chief  a  most    cordial/' welcome.
Should we ever lie In a contest with,
the C. P. R. again, we will have a pub-,'
He who can't be prejudiced against the
ibrave  boys because of any  lies  published about a leader wliom. the people
ji "have met and respect.   Pembroke was
■a memoraible.'meeting,  becaiuse of t'he
pulblic turn-out    to    welcome  us,  tiie
brass band being bi ought into requisition, tlhree M. P.'sion the prograinmu,
a. doctor In the chair andi a doctor of
divinity  (13r.  Boyne.  one of Onttiiio's
most prominent and able ministers) and
another  preacher,   and  a  few  of : the
town's   pu'bllc  nifn  on   t'he    platform.
This was my old division, where IS of
my  best,  and    happiest    years    were
spent, and we Had a line turn-out of
.old  comrades.    The  chief    was    very
much gratllled witlh the reception.   Indeed his gieeliiig fiom the public all
Klong was of tlie '
Most '.Cordial Character.
Ottawa was our next stop off. Here
we met Mr. Puttee, M. P., ot Winnipeg, already stirring in lalior Inlcresis,-
Wr.X«ga.ii,1 a .'supporter of the government, but a strong man and a. good
friend of ouis,-and who has placed a
notice of motion on the docket ,IJj.-it
trackmen on tlit\I. -C. K. shall receive
a minimum of ,$1.30 n day; Mr. I). J.
O'Donoghue, fair wage olllcer and father of trades uuioutsm in Canada, and
many otlier good friends of labor, as
well as our own boys. Wo jjad 'our
usual crowd of our own good men mid
true,. an dtheti .off tor Montreal.   Here
a. downpour of rain kept most men at
*   •
wortk,   but  enough    were    detailed  to
meet tihe chief, and give him, as thiy
said? "Welcome homo." And so without a .single unpleasant incident ended
our trip. Wo weie glad to go to bed
without any thought but gratitude for
all the kindness leceived and all the
good men met, and all the hopes of the
future. Tihe next few days weie veiy

Canadian Pacific contemplate impelling labor from Boston. Would suggest
that/alien labor ofllccr prevent infractions of law1."
The department replied:. "Alien
labor act as amended last session
mates provisions for enforcement of
law in cases of:Infringement."
The mayor of Port Arthur got .the
same answer at great length.
D. Stamper lodged a complaint witli
full particulars, and In replying to'him
the department more fully explains
how it Interprets the law. It holds'
tihat private parties have to prove in
the courts that the law' has been
violated, and then the department,
with the consent ot the attorney-general, may deport the men proved ito
have bee nl illegally .imported.
This interpretation is not considered
by labor mea to be warranted.

On Mimday Capt. Tatlow, .M. i'. P.,
In the provincial assembly at Victoria,
debating the  lledlstril.utlon bill, sjioke
as  follows:    "Mr.  Speaker:    I  cannot
help admitting a feeling of disappointment in rending this act after heating
bhe repeated ass-iiranco of the lion, attorney-general    that     the,. <bill  whsn
brought" down'"will 'be satisfactory to
everybody."   To commence with, I Hit 1
bhe bouse is to ;be Increased from .IS to
42 members.   1 do not see how this eai
be justified,;as our house to-day is, if
anything, too large in proportion to our'
population and resources and there Is
no reason to add a direct-increase pf
over'.10 .per cent, to' the. cost of legislation. Loolklng over tliepastten yeaivi
.we And that Uhe cost of ■legislation lias
■been steadily Increasing,    as follows;
1S02, $29,50.6;; ISM,  $30,675;  1S94,  $4S,Ulll;
1S.15,  $39,419;  lS9fi,  «30,SS4;  1S97,   $3t,r.Ui;
1S98,   $39,132'; "1899,   $43,603;  1900,   $47,91)1.
It shows a steady Increase'in the'cosi
of legislation. wil'iieh' is', to-day. propor-
tlonately too high for/our, population
and revenue, and yet it is proposed to
inci'.ease t'he:same by .over 10 iper cent.

The  real,  genuine  Gin-is- ���  tinn   man   talks  chiefly   about.,    this '���  life ���and,'tlie grout/eternity 7'.beyond ]  and not so much: about the insignia- ,  cant pass"bcl.woi 11  these-two-     resi-J  donees..    : And yot Iiow few      circles '  thoro are where tlio. religion of .lesas .  Christ is welcome.    Go into a circle  even of Christian : people, where thoy  ore"full of joy and hilarity, and.lalk  about  Christ  orheaven; aiid    everything is immediately silciiretl.   As on  tt/summer.day ,when the forests    are  full  of, life,  chatter, chirrup ami carol���a mighty chorus of bird 'harmony,  every tree ''branch 1111 orchestra���if    a  hawk appear in the'shy,  every voice  stops and .the forests arc still,  .lust  so .1/have seen'a lively religious circle     .silcnci.d  on  the appearance'    of  anything 'like,.religious conversation.'

It is".brighter than  the waters; it is more cheerful tliun  tho .''sunshine. Unknot'go around  groaning about, your religion when  you ought to lie singing il or talking it in cheerful loncsof voice. How  often it is that, ive find iiion whose  lives are utterly inconsistent wiui attempt, fo talk religion and always  make n failure uf It! My friends, wc  must livo religion or wo cituiiot talk  it. if a man is cranky niul cross  and uncongenial nnd liuril. in liis  dealings and then begins l.o Inlli  about Christ nnd lienvoii, ovcrybody  is repelled by it.

A startling sentence but'you know it to bo true. Scarcely a day  passes but somo death from consumption, pneumonia or similar ailment emphasizes tho truth of this statement. It is well to remember that a nowly-contractcd cold can, in almost every case, be cured, lt is ihe  neglected cold that loads lo death���tho cold that runs on un on���tho cold that ia added to by fresh coids  from timo to time. > 1  But what treatment is to bo chosen from tliu great number of remedies that aro recommended ? You en 11  uso common .sense in buying modicine, jusl us you can in the purchase of a^piano, a bicycle or a sowing inn-  chine. Kind out what treatment has tho best record in the post, apply the test of timo and get tho opinion  ol people who know from experience.  If you apply this test to medicines for coughs, colds and similar ailments, you will select Dr. Chase's  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine, becauso of tho extraordinary merits which it possesses, and which havo be-  como known to tho public generally through years of trial. Tho sales of this remedy tiro'far in excess of,any,  similar preparation, and havo nc\er teen so largo as during tho present season. These two facts aro, :we believe the strongest evidence that can bo produced in verifying tho merits of any remedy that has been thoroughly tested for years.  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed nnd Turpentino is prized especially qecauso of its far-reaching effects, even in  tho most serious cases of bronchitis, whooping cough, croup and asthma. It is not a mcro relief for coughs,  but acts on tho whole system thoroughly curing tho cold and removing chest pains, soreness of the lungs  and bronchial tubes, and all inflammation of the respiratory organs.

Here is n trick that is nlways effective, and, while it is very simple indeed,  still it is bound to appear just n wee bit  mysterious, and .many, especially your  little brothers and sisters, will be una bio  to explain it.  Take two o.-diitary claret glasses.   Fill  ono to the brim with clutet aud the other  equally full with clear water.   Cover tho  top of the glass containing water with an  ordinary visiting card so that thero are  no places around the edge uncovered by  the card.    Turn the glass upside down  aud place It on the top of the glass containing claret and adjust the glasses so  that their edges meet exactly nil the way  ui-ound.   Now move the card slightly to  one side so Hint there will bo a littlo  space nt onu side of the glasses Inside uncovered  by tho card.    At once a thin  stream   of   claret   will   begin   to   riso  through this space, "not mixing with the  water nt all, but witli its edges clear aud  sharply defined.   The water, too, will begin to descend into tho glass containing  claret, a pure, glistening white stream  against the ruddy red.    The stream of  claret, too, rising through tho. sparkling  white of the water, presents a! beautiful  effect, and in-it moment the claret will  begin lo spread about the top of the upper glass liki; the unfolding of a red rose,  and the water will spread in the bottom  of the lower glass.   The two fluids contrast of red and white, with sharply defined edges.  In n very short time the elnret nud  water will have changed places, the claret being in the upper glass nud the wnter  iu tliu lower. This is due to the'differ-  once in weight of the liquids. Tlie water, being the heavier, forces itself iuto  Hie lower glass, .and a portion 'of tho  claret is moved up to take the place ot  lite descending water.  A Trni.

Formerly tliey  Were fashioned nil more or loss after one  design, nnd women were expected lo follow tlio style whatever it wns, but now  there is n wide choice, and all the different designs nre in fashion. Furs nre  mnde up into so many forms and shapes  that no one can tell about one-tenth ot  thein. Boas nnd small neck pieces with  ns ninny heads nnd tails as can well be  fastened ou them are extremely well  liked, and tliey nre so easy to slip on  and off that it is not surprising llicy lire  the favorites, particularly when tliey  nre so very becoming.  Tlio ail fur boas arc made in various  lengths, some of them reaching tlio feet  aud others scarcely covering the front ot  the waist. This week there wiis shown  n decided novelty in .[ho way of boas.  This wns niade in form of a stole collar,  and tlie collar laid Hut around the accl;,  though it could be raised in case of very  cold weather. Tlio fronts'readied quite  to the bottom of the dross!"in the regulation stole design, hut it was niiulo'of  rich black moire and bordered with a two  'inch.bnnd of Alaska sable. The moir.a.  was six inches wide, inid 'the bordering  of the fur brought it to eight. Tliere  wns a nmff to match. Tlie whole was  lined with tlie same moire, so lhat it  would have looked the samo with cither  side out. Alaska sable is the nretticsi-  and inost durnbl" fur there is, and it  seems to be adapted to any kind of garment. The short jackets in bolero and  E'on shape make the fur boa all that is  needed not only for wariutli. but nppenr-  "nneo. Nearly all the muffs are largo  find entirolv  luitriinmed,  though a ��cf  ; ;   1ACE EMP IBE, EVENING OOWS.'.���'  nre arranged with ruffles at the ends nntl  an occasional, bpw; of rich black ribbon.  But these nre more for wearing with  some special costume'and nt some very  dressy day function.        '.  Speaking" of dressy day; functions reminds me to tell of an .exquisite tea  gown shown to a select few recently.  The gown in question wns of the daintiest and most delicate eolionne in a faint  nplnkfsoifniiit=lliaPl't-=wns-nutiine,.s4in|i6sv  Bible to believe that it was not white.  The inner gown was of taffeta n shade or  to darker and wus cut to fit tlie figure in  princess shape, while the eolitmiio was  shirred nl the neck and gathered into a  French waist with a silver and pink  belt. The skirt was gathered and fell in  'natural folds to nbout twelve inches  from the bottom of it, whore ii wns set  in the form oC it flounce wilh shirred  heading. Over this wns n long and  loose surtout of the oolionni', whicli foil  from the shoulders lo wliere It formed ;0  part of the skirt anil was. slightly .gathered at the. waist niul hung over the under  porliou. All ttlotig tlio edge of tills surtout was n row of Irish point applique.  The effect of this rich lace over the pink  eoliimno wits exquisite. The sleeves  were shirred nt the top and then hung to  the elbows, uliero-dhoy ended in a deep  rullle or Iho lnce. By the way. the sm-'  tout wiisarranged so I lint tlie gown had  a square neck in pompadour stylo.  The Knni'Miiodiste showed mo n beautiful cvifiiing govvil of black luce nm!  white chiffon which is wort li nn extended  description, us it is ono of the real successes of the. season. The uiidfrdrcss is  ivory white siitiu nnd made in close princess shape wish a train. Over this is  another dross mnde of chiffon, pure  white. The front and. in fact, nil of this  skirt are of chiffon plisse. At the edge  of the bottom of the skirt tliere is a  very full double ruchittg of. the.''chiffon,  which causes the .desired flare. Over the  whole is a tunic of fine black elinntilly  lnce, the front portion being 'shorter than  the back, which roi'ins tlie train. Tlie  lnce iu the hack reaches to the top of tha  wnlst ��nd falls from there in wutteau  style. A rich satin drapery extends  around the front and back of the wnisl  in n crossed arrangement easy to comprehend hy regarding the illustration. It  fastens both in the back and front with  handsome imitation diamonds, and the  black lace is draped in on both sides.  The sleeves arc pieces of point lace, thus  making it a costly as well as elegant costume.  Lace dresses will be so often,seen this  season that you should be told ns much  nbout them as possible. I saw another  lnce gown worthy of spwinl mention.  Tliis was for a young lady, while  the otlier was for a young matron. It  is high in the neck nnd is intended more  for a theater gown than anything else,  though it is, quite as suitable for any  evening function except a bull. The underdrew is of dark blue taffeta, and there  EOLIENNE TEA C10WK.  is a (lcen, full flounce of this nt the bottom. Over tliis is n black tullo or lino  brussels net dress simply hemmed nt the  bottom. Around the bottom of the waist  is a drapery of blue velvet, and nbovo  that tho lnce is draped full in surplice design, nnd the fullness is drawn down to  the point in front, whore it-fastens under  six rosettes, set' three on each side.  Above these and drawn directly around  the shoulders nnd to a sharp point itl  front at the waist line is a bnnd of white  Irish point Insertion-three .inches wide.  This is laid ou lint. Tlie stock collar and  n small V point are 'also'of the lnce.  Thero are inner sleeves fitting snugly,  nnd these are of white Irish point, nail  over them are loose sleeves in bishop  form of black/ doited lace. The whole  effect is elegant nnd dressy, yet maidenly.  There was another lace .dross for it  yoiing lndy, but this was all white, tlie  whole beiiig niade of Valenciennes, wilh  tiny fuellings down tlio .skirt "between  narrow tucks. These only.'reached to.the  knees, however, and ended under an applique made of the tiny cachings of chit'-"'  fqti. They!were.put on in tlio "whirling  wheel" pattern and formed tlni outline,  of a deep 'flounce.'" At llie .bottom there  woro three lines of niching,/ivitli ono double edged rullle, each edge or which'in  turn iind another fuelling. All this  caused the skirl to sot out quite widely.,  The waist was low on thebust, but high;  at tlie shoulders, and finished witli a  double niching and: rosettes of the chiffon. Tho sleeves reached the elbows aiid  wore trimmed liko the rest. This was a  girlish and dainty dress., There was no  color. '���;.'"   ,'���;���'��� '.������''"'' '���'"' ��� ;: ���. ���'.
