And it  is what is the matter with our  civilization. Life, real life, consists in developing one's personality  and gifts, in doing useful work for  the joy of it and not for pay, and  in being good because one likes it  and not in order to get to heaven.  The moment you do any of these  things for any sort of a price you  have become a moral libertine, you  belong to "this evil and adulter-  And you prob-  cording to Doctor Ainsworth, the  services of tho clergy aro no more  required than they are in the transfer of real estate. And marriage  itself was once a transfer of property. Clergymen yet ask the  question, "Who giveth this woman  away?" The civil law knows  nothing about anybody having a  claim as an adult, so to give her  away. Doctor Ainsworth says,  "Nc thing can be found in the  Scriptures authorizing the, performance of the marriage ceremony  by ministers of the Gospel; and  such being tho case, I do not see  why the clergy should mix in the  matter at all." Doctor Ainsworth  then intimates that marriages are  never made in Heaven, and couples  are not actually joined by the  hand of God; that these statements  are merely poetic and have been  tbrnst upon the Church and the  state were actually one. Now that  tho Church and the State have  seperated, the matter of contracts  of every sort should be relegated  to tho officials of tho State.  Doctor Ainsworth thinks that  the question of marriage and divorce should be left to our law  makers and law executives, and  that the' world would be a great  deal better off if the clergy did not  seek to assume a dictatorship over  the private lives of men and women  ���������Philistine.  Letters from Jane Ann  By Moore Anking  Deau Peggy,���������You don't seem  to tell me awful much in your loving letters just now, so I s'pose,  dear, you get tired at whatever it  is you're doing for a living.

I've heard   pay  that your  and I always think when young  folks in single rooms take a lodger  somebody's bound to feel the pinch.  Still, I'm glad for your sake  Clara's got someone she can  tell her troubles to, and I  shouldn't wonder if you and her  get to ' be thick as thieves.  What I mean to say is, you happen  to be well-matched you two, . and  there's no reason why that  shouldn't brighten the home-life.  If the lodger's not a particular  sort he ought to find you a great  comfort. And after all I ��������� don't  see that Clara could be fruitful and  multiply much on what her John  scraped up by selling pie-dishes off  a barrow. Not for long together  she couldn't.  Now that your puzzel's disappeared���������not wanting any con-  joogal rites, I s'pose���������seems to me,  dear, if I was in your place I could  settle down and treet marrid life  with despisory. Chasing persons  round the bandstand don't seem  to be reoly helpful in your case,  and you don't get any younger or  more beautiful, do you, queen?  I wonder you  don't try for a  soft   job at the   sack-making   or  something like   that.    Bottle   of  fiewid and a bar of soap like I  sent Clara would help you past the  doctor and in three or four years  you'd very likely be able to make  your own  cos-turaes.    You want  to think of the fowcher,  queenie,  and  clothes is   something   you'll  need as long as you  live,   unless  you should go abroad among your  own people, and its nice to be earning good money even it isn't much.

At a recent conference of Congregational ministers in Boston,  the Reverend Israel Ainsworth  made an address unlike any that  I have ever heard of, given by a  clergyman.  Doctor Ainsworth had evidently  prepared his speech with care.   He  read from manuscript,  because he  said that he did not want to go on  record with any statements that  had not been thoroughly digested.  His proposition was simply this:  That marriage in America is a civil  contract,  regulated  by   the State.  Marriage requires no clerical sanction, nor could the sanction of any  number of clergy make a marriage  binding if it did not conform to the  requirements of civil law. Neither  can Churchmen annul a marriage  For public convenience,   the law  authorizes the clergy under certain  conditions to perform the marriage  ceremony, in  which  instance the  clergyman acts the part of a justice  of the peace, and is, so to speak, an  attache of the court.  There    was a time   when   the  clergy  were  the   sole   clerks,   or  clerques���������that is,   they were   the  clerics���������and their business  was to  keep the records.    Thoy performed  marriage   ceremonies    and    they  made the record of the same, and  the fact that they now perform the  ceremony and that church  records  in America are a private affair of  which the State takes no cognizance, is all a sort of rudimentary  survival from   a past  age.   The  family record in   a  family Bible  comes to us as a breakaway on the  part of Protestantism,   and once  symboled the right of tho individual to keep hie own records.  foot, but I didn't bleeve it till I  saw her and then I wasn't over  sure either way, 'cause you can't  always tell what's in a person's  headpiece just by looking at their  dial, can you, dear?  I often thought after seeing your  mother and you what a treet it  would be to see your father, but I  never did. I s'pose he got sent  away before my time.  Father told us once how your  pa got called Old Testy. Seems  that a gentleman friend of the  parties was having a compli-ment-  ary benefit, he having had the mis-  forchune to set his wife afire. They  called it a testy-monial on the  tickets, and your father wouldn't  pay his tuppence. "He said he  didn't mind helping those he  knowed but he'd never heard tell  of Testy Monial and was going to  encurridge him.  I've heard say,   though,  in  the  hopping sea-son yonr pa was one of  the    quickest hoppers   that ever  hopped���������didn't   seem   to   let   his  right hand know what the left was  doing,    I   s'pose   the time   come  when  he didn't   know  what the  left was doing.    I s'pose" the time  come when he didn't know what  either of them was doing, else the  pleece   wouldn't have fetched him  out of bed in the middle of the  night.    Funny   thing,   dear,   but  most men get   into trouble with  their hands.    I   remember   when  Bert,s cousin come home on fur-  low, being a handy-man he thought  he had to be busy all  the timo.  He made  hissolf so   useful   that  Bert   had   to tell  him   about it.  There didn't seem to be much rest  and peace for anybody till ho wont  to sea again.  No, dear, you don't sur-prise mo  a bit to tell me Clara Parkins has  had to take a lodger,   'cause  I  didn't sup-pose that her John was  one to keep tho rent paid and ' do  for a family.    Clara will be busy.  I s'pose her and her chap take it in  turns to sleep in the fire-place,  or  else they'd a middling nice room  s'far's I can  remember, though I  didn't trust myself to stay long  when I saw it.   You never told  me in your letter which corner of  their room they've let.  One thing, dear, everybody says  young people ought to pull together  and it don't seem right to me that  "There is nothing more admirable thau thrift, and there is nothing more pitiable than when the  accumulations of thrift are pocketed by the rapacious harpies who  prey upon the small investor," says  the Economist (Eng.)  It is therefore not only desirable,  but it is absolutely necessary that  we should have some plan of investment under which we may by  putting aside from  week to  week  or month  to month a portion of  our    earnings    make    provision  against the   "Rainy   Day,"   and  this plan  is afforded  by the Canadian Government Annuities Act,  which was approved by members  of   both   Houses   of   Parliament.  The benefits to be derived from  the   purchase of   a   Government  Annuity  as a means of   making  provision for old age are, it may be  said,    far more    bountiful    than  those which may be derived  from  any other safe investment, and far  greater than the people have any  idea of, simply for the reason that  with every payment of Annuity is  returned a portion of tho purchase  money together with compound interest at 4 per cent.    If the Annuitant lives the average number of  years he may be expected  to live  according to mortality experience,  he will receive  back all that he  paid in as well as the interest thereon.    But this is not all, for should  he  survive   this   expectation the  Annuity will not cease, but will go  on until his death.    It seems p ara  doxical  that a man   can  use his  principal without his income becoming less, but this is made possible under tlm Annuities System.  The ago of   five is the earliest  age at which payments for the purchase of an Annuity may be begun,  and the age of 55 has been fixed as  the earliest age at which,  except  for  invalidity   or   disability,   an  Annuity may begin, but tho longer  it is deferred the larger of course,  will bo the amont received.    For  example,  the   payment .of  $1   a  week by a man of 25 until he is 55  would give him an Annuity from  tho latter age of $258.28,  payable  quarterly;   while if he continued  paying until he was 60, his Annuity would be 8397.36.   In either  Four species of wood were used  to make up the six hundred thousand cords worth three million, five  hundred   thousand    dollars,   that  were used   by   the  pulp  mills in  Canada iu   1910.     These   woods  were spruce, balsam,  hemlock and  poplar, as ascertained by   the Dominion Foresty Branch in a report  soon to be published  on  the pulp-  wood consumption.    The percentage of spruce, which   has   always  bcenthe chief wood  used   is gradually becoming less,  although still  forming over three-quarters of the  total pulpwood   consumption.    In  190S" spruce   contributed   S7   per  cent of tho total; in   1909,   83 por  cent; and in 1910, 78 per cent. The  importance of balsam, tho species  of   pulpwood,   is   increasing.    In  1908, it formed 12 per cent of the  total; in 1009, 16 per  cent; in 1910  20   per   cent.       Another   species  which is   rapidly   becoming   more  important   is   the   hemlock,   over  five times   as   much being used in  1910, as in the year previous.   The  use   of poplar   fell   off  over one-  quarter,   a   consumption   of only  three thousand, six hundred cords  being reported   for   1910.    Spruce  was the most expensive species at  $6.05 per cord   or   64   cents more  than    in    1909.v      During   1910  balsam became reduced 55 cents to  $5.71.     Hemlock  remained at the  same price for about two years and  is still the cheapest species.    Poplar has increased eleven cents during the year, the price being $5.92  in 1910.    The prices of pulp wood  are affected not only by the properties of different species,   but also  by   the   conditions   under   which  bought (whether   in   open market  or on limits) and by   tho distance  of the wood from the point of consumption.  jt jt jt jt jt jt jj ,# jt # & Jt JJ jt jt jl j>  ���������%  ���������*������  *>  <*J  -*,  %  i  leaves Mother Lode  9,30 a. m.  6:30 p. m.

Ignorance No Plea.  .  The plea of ignorance will never  take away our responsibilities,"  said Raskin, and most people have  found this to be so. - The plea of  ignorance never suffices for a sufficient excuse in extenuation of any  mistake.  In this world it is our business  to know. Either we must find our  knowledge by .patient industry or  through the knowledge of others!  The former way of arriving at  knowledge is the only successful  one yet found. The other is only  a makeshift.  -  We are given   certain   responsibilities.   We are expected to carry  them with as much dignity as possible ancl to make,, them really the  helps that advance,.us in . our life  work. - And they can be ��������� just that  if we will only try to make 'them  so.   -  The responsibilities of a family  has held many a man true to his  course until his habits became so  fixed that he could work out his  success calmly and efficiently.

A beacon that directs one to the shores  ofthe untried land of endeavor,  where the true metal is to have  its real tryout in the furnaces of  experience.  So to, we must view the banishment of ignorance. Ancl ignorance  is always the'plea of the weak. The  strong person tries" to know. Of  course there are unfathomed secrets of nature thot keep all of us  in ignorance of certain principles  of life, of certain phases of human  character and of our own personality- but bhey do not interfere so  much after all with our quest to be  true men and women as some try  to believe.  Ignorance is a condition which a  little careful consideration will dispel.  That is    what   makes   ignnranoe  so pitiful���������because it might be easily overcome if   individuals   were  truer to themselves and less prone  to accept the plea of ignorance in |  all   cases.      Whatever   may have  been justified in the ages  when ignorance was a condition   resultant  of civilization   it   cannot   be said  now.    This is the age of light and  enlightment,  and the "plea of ignorance can never   take away our  responsibility"  for anything that  goes amiss.    As long as our intelligences are alive and working we  must advance to the fuller   knowledge and   so   dispel   ignorance.���������  Katherine Kip.

The election by-law was re-cou-  sidered, adopted, and finally passed, and then the Council adjourned.  THE BLACK SOUTH. ,  The following is by E. J. White  in the White Horse Star:  '���������Henry Clay Beattie who was  electrocuted for the murder of his  wife near Richmond, Virginia,  lately, was by no means the first  man in the South to disgrace an  honored name. While Henry  Clay, the famous Kentucky statesman, was never president of the  United States, he was oue of the  most brilliant men of his century  and for one to stigmatize the name  oE Henry Clay with - murder was  ono of the unfortunate features in  connection with the Virginia ux-  orcide.  Up to the time tho Stroller left  the South he had seen many men  named for every president from  George Washington to Rutherford  B. Hayes pay the death penalty  either by lynching or legal process.  In fact, it was quite common to see  au inch rope securely fastened by  one end to a cross beam or strong  limb and the namesake of a former president dangling on the  other end. When the Stroller left  South, they were still lynching  Abe Lincolns, Ulysses S. Grants  and an occasional James A. Garfield, but since then the Grover  Clevelands and Benjamin Harrisons have come in, while a heavy  crop of Teddy Roosevelts will be  ready to harvest within the next  few years. So far as death's mark  is concerned, there is nothing particularly brilliant among those she  gets over the rope route in the  South,   but   she   frequently lands  some very shiny names.  The Stroller was, present at the  execution of Andrew Johnson  Brown, sou of William Henry  Harrison Brown, and great-grandson of George Washington Brown.  Andrew had fired a pound or two  of old horseshoe nails and other  rusty hardware into the system of  a respected citizen aud it was up  to him to die for it. He did not  so desire, but it was the wish of  the Possum Trot neighborhood, so  Andy died. The Stroller was in  the cell with him during his last  houi* on earth, and when a,sked if  there was anything he wished, he  replied "Give mo a chaw of tobac-  cer." His secoud request was that  the Stroller convey a message, to  his widow, but he did not wish it  delivered for four days after he  was dead.  Andy was hanged on Friday and  when the Stroller called at his late  residence the following Tuesday  to deliver the message and asked  that he might see the widow  Brown, he was met by a stalwart  negress, who said:  "Dar aint no widdy Brown  aroun' hyah. Dar was one Friday  night and all day Satiddy an' until Sunday evenin' an' I was huh,  but dar aint no widdy Brown hyah  now, kase mah name now is Missus Rastus Jackson an' me an'  Rastus-Jackson was done married  Sunday night down to Amazin  Grace church."  In further conversation, the late  widow Brown confided to the  Stroller that there was several  suiters for her hand, but she decided on Rastus for the reason that  the late Andrew Johnson's .old  clothes came nearer fitting him  than any of the others, "an" she  concluded, "if dar is anything Ah  TOBACCO HABIT  Dr. MuTa-j-jfart's tobacco remeily removes  all ileslre for tlie weed in si few days.

Vinol is not a secret nostrum, simply the medicinal elements of the  cods' livers, with the useless nauseating oil eliminated, and tonic iron added.

A New Line  It now begins to look as, though  the    Canadian    Pacific    Railway  would shortly begin work on  its  proposed new line from  Montreal  to   Toronto. via   the Lake Shore  route.   The route of the new line  which has been under consideration  for many years has been filed with  the   Railway  Commission  and  it  only waits for their approval, for  work   to   be   started.     Canadian  Pacific   Railway   officials   stated  yesterday that the route which Las  been surveyed is a  very advauta-  geous   one.     Compared    to    the  grade on the present line, the new  route is particularly good as the  grade is only a 4-10 one.    It is also  a trifle shorter  than   the present  route.  The projected new line leaves the  present Canadian Pacific Railway  main line at Glentay, just west of  Perth, about fifeen miles from  Smith Falls. This part of the  main line of the C.P.R. has just  recently been double tracked,  which would give the new line  double track from there to Montreal, a distance of 144 miles.  Leaving Glen Tay the proposed  line travels southwesterly to Belle  ville. There it strikes almost due  west for a few miles and then follows  the shore of Lake Ontario to Toronto. It is about 200 miles from  Glen Tay to Toronto by the route  surveyed and it is expected that if  the new line is constructed it will  enable the Canadian Pacific Railway to considerably lower, the  time for its Toronto, Montreal service.

A COPPER STREET, GREENWOOD A  R4M0l)S PEOPLE  BY FANNIE MLOTHROP    <^  EHfllO-S ^as^ls**WDCTlIs-i>  JOHN OLIVER HOBBES  The Literary Life of Mrs. Craiglc.  The brightest, wittiest and keenest of contemporary writers is Mrs. Craigie,  better known to thc world of letters as John Oliver Hobbcs. Her specialty is human  nature; sho delights to vivisect humanity as a whole, to put some poor struggling  emotion under the microscopo of her investigation and study it as Binct would a  bacterium.   The results of her findings aro delivered in epigrams, clear, crisp,  ' cynical at times, but always clever.   She stimulates thought in her readers; she  irritates at times, arouses antagonism, challenges opposition; but she forces attention. The threads of her destiny unite her to tho United States by birth and an-  , ccstry, to England by adoption and education, and to Canada by marriage, being  'the daughter-in-law of Ernest Craigie of Montreal.    Born in-Boston in 1867,  daughter of John Morgan Richards, now one of tho wealthiest druggists in London, she came from an ancestry of four Puritan divines on one side and a line of  Tory politicians on the other, her great grandfather being a member of the Halifax Parliament long beforo tho Declaration of Independence, :  When a child of.three sho was taken on the usual tour through Europe, the  beginning of her many travelling experiences. At a very early age she showed  preliminary symptoms of her appetite for literature in her unsalable reading of  tho books of others, and in attempting to add her few drops to the ocean of literature. At nine sho received a prizo for a story "Lost, a Dog," contributed to Dr  Joseph Parker's paper "The Fountain," but did no serious literary work untii  after her marriage. Sho was educated at University College, London, and took  later courses in Rome and Paris, receiving much of her training at tho Royal  Academy of Music.  When only nineteen she was married to Reginald Walpolo Craigie of tho Bank  of England, and her brief and unhappy matrimonial.experience was terminated  in 1895 by a divorce in which her young son was given into her custody. With  him sho went to thc beautiful homo of her parents, a delightful, solid, old-fashioned  mansion at Lancaster Gate, ono of thc fino residential sec-lions) of I oiulon. No  houso in tho English metropolis gathers within its hospitabid'wu!U a greater  number of famous people, thc dinner-parties often consisthij; of forty or fifty  guests and running the spectrum'of. attainment in all phases. In tli'd congeniul  and inspiring atmosphere Mrs. Craigie has blossomed into fuller power.  Her literary output, though in a dozen or more books is slight after all in  volume, but in individuality, intrinsic value, jiiquancy mid force, have given  their author world famo. Mrs, Craigio is slight, of a girlish figure ond a fucu eloquent with an inner brightness and intensity, a complexion singularly fair, beautiful dark hair and largo black eyes.
