Sir Charles Tupper  is       suddenly   ���������   missed      from,    the  front of the outfit, whicli  was so recently beating  ton-tons, waving.flags,  pounding .drums,   lighting     bonfires,'  Mowing   bugles,   and    screaming-for  more   soldiers   and 'more' money and  inon- war and more  blood ;  and���������God  save  us  from  such   another sight���������is  discovered   in   the adjoining province  playing   to- a different  audience and  'makingspeeches which aie remarkable  not only  for their   untimely   diskryul  spirit,   but  for   the   inaccuracies   for  which he, as an Imperial federationist  and   British   Empire Leaguer, must he  held   strictly   responsible.     So   many  years he sei ved in (because which he  now denounces without sparing either  language   or  truth,  that, he  muM   be  held   as  either an   actor  who i.s more,  anxious   in   exhibit   his   versaliliility  the     Celebrated j than his, virtue, or else as a politician  rOSpeCLOr     Shoe,     no J who is absolutely unscruptilou.', either  as to fact or theory, and like the barns-tor mer who is described in the car-  loon, anxious to produce any sort of a  play suited to any sort of an audience.  Thi.-, of course, is the role which Sir  Charles has a riglit as a citizen of a  free country to play, hut Canadians  who, occasionally, are willing to be  entertained by harlequins, fakirs, and  curtaiu-chewers in the theaties, are  not quite dense or reckless enough io  choose their' political leaders irom  amongst the performers of a political  playhouse."

Ottawa,   May   12.���������Now   .that   the  budget debate is finally out of the way,  "  there  is   promise of some progress in  the   serious   business   of   the session.  Very, little lias yet Iwen  done with the-  estimates,,and it is seldom that they  ,   are disposedof in less than live weeks ;  moreover the Opposition threatens to  ���������;iclivi'de(.he house, early and often upon  many.items therein  contained, so that  there is   small   prospect of   any  time  Jjeing   saved, > and   if    tlie ��������� session   is  brought to a conclusion  in time, to let  the   members   reach their homes   by  Dominion Day, everyone will be profoundly,thankful.    There are however  those who doubt if even that distant  ��������� date will   see   prorogation   an  accomplished fact.  Evidences of the dire disaster which,  accoiding to Sir Charles Tupper, was  to overtake Canadian' commerce when  tho liberals came into power', continues  to accumulate. ,, According to   "The  American  Miller-," orders for machin-  '; -ery for six  new roller flour mills"have  '   been sentlroui Ni-w  Brunswick points  p within a tew weeks  past.'    The   mills.  will  have a'  capacity of   fifty -banels  daily each; and will be located at And-  ��������� over,   Lakeville,   Bristol,   Centreville,���������  Canterbury, and  Killem's Mill, and it  is said that another- mill may be built  atMoncton.     When these'new mills  are  built and  running  there  will   be  eighteen   mills   in   operation   in New  Brunswick, and it is expected that the  combined capacity of tbe mills of that  province will  soon'reach  1,000 barrels  a day.  Nova Scotia too. is getting her share,  for "The Maritime Merchant," asserts  , that the greatly increased demand for  Nova Scotia coal will be one"of' the  most gratifying features in provincial  industry this year. The collieries have  been kept hard at work for the past  nine months, and  the output has been        .  marketed  readily at increased   rates. I ������r.vate Hus-nll, R.

Into :i,'Valuable Arcliijielt-fsn.  ,   A million,or so years ago, according to  .the   government   geologist,    the    l'hilip-  ' jiines  consisted   largely   of  swamps  nnd  shallow   sea1-.    Tliere  was  an, iiumou-so  ���������luxuriance  of  tropical   plant, growth   iu  the "swampy   regionv where   accumiil.-i-  tions of vegetable debris werc.eveiitually  covered with mud and transformed .into  ,n kind of cual called "lignite." which today is probably the most.valuable mineral   asset   of   the  American   India.     At  longtii  there came a crumpling and upheaval   of  the  catties "crust  so  tremen-  ��������� dous,>as 'to be felt all the way from  Switzerland to the Himalayas, where the  bottom ��������� of tho ocean was uplifted into  mountains three miles above sea,level.  'Indeed the strata representing these ancient marine beds are now found in the  Himalayas at an elpvation of 3U.000 feet.  The   Philippines  shared   in   this   uplift.  '    which   also  formed   the  laud   bridge 'to  ,As'ia already mentioned.  Across the land bridge from the mainland came' all sorts of animals to the  archipelago, and in a later age they were  cut off from returning by a general subsidence of the islands. The hitter sank  so much indeed that the group was reduced to a mere sprinkling of hilly ir-lels,  four of which existed within tho present  area covered by Luzon, while Colin was  completely submerged. At this time there  began- a series of volcanic eruptions,  mostly submarine, which threw up a  great a mount: of material from the ,bow-  . els of the earth, thus adding largely to  the laud aiea. and about 10.000 years ago  there "came another uplift, which raised  the archipelago to its present status ap-,  proximately. Tt ds believed, however,  that lhe islands are still rising gradually,  occasional earthquakes being merely jars  incidental to the slow .process of elevation. Tho volcanic phenomena have not  yet ceased. A few years ago there' was  a.violent eruption of Mayon, in southern  Luzon, which is the most beautiful, symmetrical volcanic cone in the world,  sharply pointed at the apex.���������-Philadelphia Call.o   .  Dean Stoken''Story.  "The lute Dean Gilbert Stokes of tho  Anglican church," says the Rochester  Post-Express, "used to tell the story of a  conversation he had with the old verger  of a certain English parish church. Probably he embellished it. polishing it like  old silver with much using, but anyhow  this was the lale:  '" 'Who, my good friend, takes the lend  in Sunday school matters here?' asked  the dean of the verg-'iv  *' 'I do, sir,' was the proud reply.

The human face is n most ���������iniiruit-  wortliy index of human character;  Can you think of a single great humorist who had a merry face? Artemu������j  Ward had the face of'an undertaker.  Mar*-: Twain's face is a study in beetling  lirows, furrows, wrinkle.4 and solemnity.  Nasby, in whose funny war' sketches  Abraham Lincoln used to find endless entertainment, had a' face as'.serious as a  tc������i baton e.  And who, 1o look, at Lincoln's own pathetic features, would believe that he was  a,man of infinite humor and-jest'/  If you think of ineu of great intellect,  how few of them have had faces that  suggested it! Ciibbon, the king of histo-.  riaiss. had a red, Dabby, vulgar face. Dr.  Johnson had one of''the same type and  'was so blear eyed'that; his expression was  one of extreme dullness. Voltaire's'inight.y  intellect was masked behind a face that  was almost" repulsive. His nose and chin  nearly met, his 'checks were hollow and  wrinkled, and his eyes were curtained by  a pair of beetling brows.'  Hume,, tho ��������� famous English historian,  had a fat, gross face that had in it no  . suggestion of his intellectual power.  Charles Dickens' face .gave no assurance  'of the splendid'range of his powers as a  writer. And to turn from George Eliot's  novels to a portrait of the author, is to be  not only disappointed, but shocked.  The same failure of faces' and charac:  tei'3 to correspond with each other is  found in the portraits of famous criminals. Very few murderers have had cruel  faces.
