This was  the anthem of our race Thursday that  swelled to heaven from 'freemen's  throats wherever the flag is raised.  The polar circles heard it on the very  axis of the earth and the sound passed  on over the tropics to the equator till  it circled ,the globe itself: It rang  from continent to continent" caught up  by the islands of ehe sea; aye, hy the  high seas-themselves crowded with our.  ''   ocean-borne commerce.    Loud as   was  '; the song raised in the mother-land  for  r. the venerable and gracious sovereign  which' it-honors, it lost no volume or  feeling as it sped westward across   the  u travelled Atlantic and ^through oar  own grand,' northern Dominion from  shore to shore.    No break occurred as  it sped across the wide. Pacific and  no  i ,     r  inhospitable oi-alien land   received  it  in federated Australia, New Zealand,  I, Tasmania, or in our  outposts  on   the  fringe ef Asia.    It travelled our high-  - way as it flew to' panting India and  Ceylon's Isle, and on its onward course  V    it brought fresh courage- to   our  arras  at'both ends of Africa.    It  filled   the  ' { i  Gulf of Persen; and the Mediterranean  1 in the heart of envious Europe sang it,  back from grim old Gib to the cradle  of its creation ,and every- man who  sang felt a' thrill.' As the current  swept through that binds us man ' to  man and people to people and united  .us all whether iu   Britain or  Greater  \. i ,  "'Britain in one grand chorus of song  ' we recognized in its spohtanety that  we were-really singing the anthem of  the free; that the cause of our Queen  \vas ever the cause of freedom and  justice, and i\uit in such strength we  should conquer arid our breed inherit  the earth. Bub there is also another  meaning to the Briton's song. We are  not alone proclaiming through our  Queen oiir imperial freedom of government  "broad   based   upon   a  people's  - will," but we are paying our homage  to'pure womanhood and honoring her  for her.own personal worth. The first  lady in tiie hind, she is -ilso- the most,  womanly of women, and for her own  sweet sake millions of men stand ready  to obey her call as  devotedly  as  ever  . they could do for her a Queen, , ,Sbc  has endeared herself to the hearts of  her people for a life of devotion to  state, duty and womanly sympathy  and, though there, is in view of her  advanced .age a touch of patho-s in the  line "Long Live Our Gracious Queen,"  it will be with heart .ind voice that  we shall continue to sing���������'Long to  .������������������ei������ii over us ---(iod Have the Quefcn .'

Amid the  general  interest  that  is  centered , on  the  provincial   elections  .campaign, the doings in the   more  extended field of  dominion  politics  are  liable to be overlooked. ��������� In   this  connection a recent decision of the dominion government is   worthy  of   having  attention     specially     drawn     to ��������� it.  Settlers within the railway belt will be  pleased to learn that   the -government  at Ottawa have decided to  grant  free  homesteads on Dominion lands in  this  province.    This will be a great boon  to settlersand will undoubtedly- assist  in promoting settlement in those parts  affected bv this most desirable   resula-  tion.    To   Mr. Hewitt  Bostock   and  Mr. Aulay Morrison is due the  credit  of having   obtained   this   concession,  which is thoroughly in   line with   the  general policy of the   liberal   administration.���������Inland Sentinel.,  ANALYTICAL CJMSMJST ANJJ  ASSAYIiK.
