The Great Northern is allowed  by Canadian law to charge 25 per  cent more for moving freight in  Canada than tho State of Wasning-  ton permits them to do. Legally  I they have a right to charge more  for carrying freight from Myncaster  to Midway than from Chesaw to  Ferry.  R. C. Tiiinan of the Bank of B.  N.

To ray surprise, however, il  was as luxuriously appointed as any  I had ever seen. At least a dozen valu  able pictures���������I presume, they musl  have been valuable, though personally  I know but little about such things-  decorated the walls; a large and  quaintly-carved cabinet stood in one  corner and held a multitude of china  vases, bowls, plates, and other knick-  knacks; a massive oak sideboard oc  cupled a apace aiong one wall -and  supported a quantity of silver plate;  while the corresponding space upon  the opposite wall was filled by a bookcase reaching to within a few inches  of the ceiling, and crammed with  works of every sort and description.  A heavy pile carpet, so soft that our  movements made no sound upon it.  covered the floor; luxurious chairs  and couches were scattered about  here and there, while in an alcove at  the further end was an ingenious apparatus for- conducting chemical researches. Supper was laid on the table  in the centre, and when we had warmed ourselves 'at the fire that glowed  ln the grate, we sat down to it. As if  to add still further to my surprise,  when the silver covers of the dishes  were lifted, everything was found to  be smoking hot. How this.had been  managed I could not tell, for our arrival at that particular moment could  not have been foretold with any chance  of certainty,-* and I had seen no servant enter the room. But I was very  hungry, and as the supper before me  was the best I had sat down to for  years, you may suppose I was but little inclined to waste time on a matter  of such trivial importance.  "When we had'hnished and I had imbibed the better part of two bottles ot  Heidseck, which my host had assiduously pressed upon me, we left the  table and ensconced ourselves in  chairs on either side of the hearth.  Then, for the first time,-1 was able to  take thorough stock of my companion.  He was a man of perhaps a little above  middle height, broad shouldered, but  Blimly built. His elegant proportions,  however, gave but a small idea of the  enormous strength I afterwards discovered him to possess. His hair and  eyes were black as night, his complexion was a dark olive hue, confirming that suspicion of foreign extraction which his name suggested,  but of which his speech afforded no  trace. He was attired in faultless evening dress, the dark color of which  heightened the extraordinary jrallor of  his complexion.  "You have a queer home here, Dr.  Nikola!" I said, as I accepted the  cheroot he offered me.  "Perhaps it is a little out of the  ��������� common," he answered, with one of  his queer smiles; "but then that is  easily accounted for. Unlike the general run of human beings, I am not gregarious. In other words, I am very  much averse to what is called the  society of my fellow man; I prefer,  under most circumstances, to--'live  alone. At times, of course, that is not  possible. But the idea of living in a  ���������iat, snail we gay, witn pernaps a  couple of families above mo, as many  on either side, and the same number  below; or in an hotel or a boarding-  house, in which I am compelled to eat  my meals in company with half-a-hun-  dred total strangers, is absolutely repulsive to" me. 1 cannot bear it, and  therefore I choose my abode elsewhere. A private dwelling-house 1  might, of course, take, but that would  necessitate servants and other incumbrances; this building suits my purposes admirably. As you may have  noticed, it was once a boot and shoe  factory; but after the proprietor committed suicide by cutting his throat���������  which, by the way, he did in this very  room���������the business failed; and until  I fell across it, it was supposed to be  haunted, and, in consequence, has remained untenanted."  "But do you mean to say you live  here alone?" I enquired, surprised at  the queerness of the idea.  "In a certain sense, yes���������in another,  no. That is, I have a4deaf and dumb  Chinese servant who attends to my  simple wants, and a cat who for years  has never left me."  "You surprise me more and more!"  "And why? Considering that I know  China better than you know that part  of London situated, shall we say, between Blackfriars Bridge and Charing  Cross, and have spent many years of  my life here, the first should not astonish you. And as I am warmly attached to 'my-cat, who has accompan-  - led me In all my wanderings about the  globe, I cannot see tharyou should be  surprised at the other. Perhaps you  would like to see both?"1  As may bo supposed, I jumped eagerly at the opportunity; and upon my  saying so, Nikola pressed a knob In  the wall at his side. He had hardly  taken his finger away before my ear  detected the shuffling of feet in the  passage outside.' Next moment the  door opened, and in walked the most  hideous man I have ever yet beheld in  my life. In Australia I had met many  queer specimens of the Chinese race,  but never one whose countenance approached in repulsiveness that of tho  man Nikola employed as his servant.  In stature he was taller than his man-  ter, possibly a couple or three Inchon  above six feet, and broad In proportion. His eyes squinted inwardly, his  face, was wrinkled ,and seemed In every  direction, his nose had plainly been  silt at some time or another, and I  noticed that his left ear was missing  from his head. He was dressed In his  native costume, but when he turned  round I noticed that his pigtail had  boen shorn off at the roots.  "You are evidently puzzled about  something," said Nikola, who had been  watching my face.  "I must confess I am," I answered.  "It is this. If he is detff and dumb, as  you say, how did he hear tiro bell you  rang, and also how do you communicate your orders to him?" ���������.  "This knob," replied Nikola, placing  his finger on the bell-push, "releases  a smaller shutter and reveals a disc  that signifies that I desire.his services.  JViica I wlxh to nl**e him l-*flkuallnt-.s  ������*���������  "**"   '        -.  f "speak" To"h"im iTl liis" own 1T*iTgTiiTge,  and he answers it. It is very simple."  "But you said just now that he is  deaf and dumb," I cried, thinking   1  had caught him ln an equivocation.  "So he is," replied my host, looking  at me as he spoke, with an amused  smile upon his face. "Quite deaf and  dumb."   '  "Then how can you make him hear.  And how'does he reply?"  "As I say, by word of mouth. Allow  me to explain. You argue that because  the poor fellow has no tongue wherewith to speak, and his ears are incapable of hearing what you say to  him, that it is impossible for him to  carry on a conversation. So far as your  meaning goes, your are right: But you  must remember that, while no sound  can come from his lips, it is still possible for the words to be framed. In  that case our eyes take the place of  our ears, and thus the difficulty is  solved. The principle is a simple one,  and a visit to any modern deaf and  dumb school in London will show you  its efficacy. Surely you are not going  to ask roe to believe you have not  heard of the system before?"  "Of course I have heard of it," I answered, "but in this case the circumstances are so different."  "Simply because the man is a,China-  man���������that is all. If his skin were white  instead of yellow, and he wore English  dress and parted his hair in the middle, you would find nothing extraordinary in It. At any rate, perpetual  silence on the part of a servant and  physical inability to tittle-tattle of the  affairs one would wish kept a secret,  is a luxury few men can boast."  "I agree with you; but how did the  poor follow come to lose his faculties?"  "To let you Into that secret would  necessitate the narration of a long  and, I fear to you, uninteresting story.  Suffice that he -was the confidential  servant of the Viceroy of Kwelchow  until he was detected in an amicable  plot to assassinate his master with  poisoned rice. He was at once condemned to die by ling-chl or the death  of a thousand cuts, but by the exercise of a little influence which, fortunately for him, I was able to bring  to bear, I managed to get him off."  "I wonder you care" to have a man  capable of concocting such a plot about  you," I said.  "And why? Because the poor devil  desired to kill the man he hated, Is It  certain that he should wish to terminate the existence of his benefactor,  for whom he has a great affection?  Moreover, he is a really good cook, understands my likes and dislikes, never  I grumbles, and Is quite conscious that  I if he kief t me he would never get  another situation in the world. In the  nineteenth century, when good servants are so difficult to procure, the  man Is worth a gold mine���������a Wheel  of Fortune, if you like."  " "You would argue, then," I said, disregarding the latter part of his speech,  "that if a man hates another he is justified in endeavoring to rid the world  of him?"  "Necessarily It must depend entirely on the circumstances of the case,"  replied Nikola, leaning back in his  chair and stedfastly regarding me.  "When a man attempts to do, or succeeds ingoing, me an Injury, I invariably repay him in his own coin. Presume, for instance, that a man weie  to rob you of what you loved best, and  considered most worth having, in the  world���������the affection of your wife,  shall we say?���������in that case, if you  were a man of spirit you would feel  justified In meting out to hlrn the  punishment he deserved, either, in the  shape of a duel, or severe personal  chastisement. If he shot at you in any  country but England, you would shoot  | at him. Eye for eye, and tooth for  I tooth, was the old Hebrew law, and  whatever may be said against It, fundamentally it was a just one."  I thought of Bartrand, and wished I  could apply the principle to him.  "I fear, however," continued Nikola,  after a moment's pause, "that in personal matters the men. of the present  day are not so brave as they once  were. They shelter themselves too  much behind the law of the land. A  man slanders you; Instead of thrashing him you bring an action against  him for libel, and claim damages in  /money. A man runs away with your  wife; you proclaim your shame in open  court, and take gold from your enemy  for the affront he has put upon your  honor. If a man thrashes you In a public place, you don't strike, him back;  on the contrary, you consult your solicitor, arid take your case before a  magistrate, who binds him over to  keep the peace. If, after all Is said and  done, you look closely into tho matter,  what is crime? A very pliable term, 1  fancy. For instance, a duke may commit an offence, and escape scot free,  when, for the same thing, only under  a different name, a costermonger  would be sent to gaol for five years.  And vice versa. A subaltern In a crack  regiment may run up tailors* bills���������  or any others, for that matter���������for  several thousands of pounds and do-  camp without paying a halfpenny of  the money, never having Intended ,tc  do so from the very beginning, while  If a chimney sweep were to purloin a  bunch of radishes from a tray outside  a greengrocer's window, he would  probably ho sent to gaol for three  months. And yet both are stealing,  though I must confoss society regards  them with very different eyes. Let  clergymen and other righteous men  say what they will, the world in Its-  heart rather admires the man who has  the pluck to swindle, but he must do  so on a big scale, and he must do so  successfully, or he must pay the penalty of failure. Your own case, w th  which, aa I said earlier, I am quite  familiar, is one in point. Everyone who  has heard of it, and who knows anything of the man, feels certain that  Bartrand stole from you the information which has made him a millionaire he is. But does it make any difference ln the world's treatment of him1?  None whatever. And why? Because he  swindled successfully. In the flame  way they regard you as a very poor  sort of fellow for nubmittlnj; to hla in-  Justified.-    '  ���������"Cur'se'him!"  "Exactly. But, you see, tho fact remains. Bartrand has a house ln Park  Lane and a castle in Shropshire. The  Puke of Glendower dined with him  the night before last, and one of the  members of the Cabinet will do so on  Saturday next. Yesterday he purchased  a racing stable and a stud, for which  he paid twenty ttiousand pounds cash;  while I am told that next year he intends building a yacht that shall be  the finest craft of-her class in British  waters. It is settled that he is to bo  presented at the next levee, and already 'he Is in the first swim of the  fashionable world. If he can only win  the Derby this year, there is nothing  he might not aspire to. In ten years  If his money lasts and he is still alive,  he will be a peer of the realm and  founding a new family."  "He must not live as long. Oh, if I  could only meet him face to face and  repay him for his treachery!"        ^  "And why not? What is there to prevent you? You can walk to his house  any morning and ask to see him. If  you give the butler a fictitious name  and a tip he will admit you.' Then,  when you get into the library, you can  state your grievance and, having done  so, shoot him dead."  I uttered a little involuntary cry of  anger. Deeply as I hated the man,' it  was not possible for me seriously to  contemplate murdering him in cold  blood. Besides���������no, no; such a scheme  could not be thought of for a moment.  "You don't like the idea?" said  Nikola, with that easy nonchalance  which characterized him. "Well, I  don't wonder at it; it's a bizarre, to  say the least of it. You would.probably  be caught and hanged, and hanging is  an inartistic termination to tho career  of even an unsuccessful man. Besides,  in that case, you would havo lost your  money and your life; he only his life,  so that the balance would still be in  his favor. No; what you want Is something a little more subtle, a little more  artistic. You want a scheme that will  enable you to put him ������ut of the way,  and, at the same time, one that will  place you in possession of the money  that is really yours. .Therefore it must  be done without any esclandre. Now  I don't doubt you would be surprised  if I were to tell you that in the event  of his death you would find yourself  his sole heir."  "His sole heir?" I cried. "You must  be mad to say such a thing."  "With due respect, no more mad  than you are," said-this extraordinary  man. I have seen the will for myself���������  never mind how I managed it���������and I  know that what I say is correct. After  all, it is very feasible. The man, for  the reason that he has wronged you,  hates you like poison, and while he  lives you may be sure you will never  see a penny of his fortune. But he is'  also superstitious, and believing, as he  does, that he stands a chance of eternal punishment for swindling you as  he did, he is going to endeavor to obtain a mitigation of his sentence by  leaving you at his death what he has  not been able to spend during his lifetime. If you die first, so much the  worse for him; but I imagine he is  willing to risk that."  I rose from my chair, this time  thoroughly angered.  "Dr. Nikola," I said, "this is a sub-  !ect upon.which I feel very'deeply. I  have no desire to jest.about it."  'To Be Continued)  A JAPANESE TOILET.

'  Farmer Says Apparition of Dead Wile  -    * Gave Him Warning.  , That a whispered warning in the  'dark by the ghost of his dead wife -  Baved him recently frorh death by as-'  hasmation is the belief of Charles H.  Durand, a farmer living in the hills  'nea'r Caldwell, N.J. His strange story  is being used as a clue by the authorities. Durand says that late one night,  as he was driving home from Pater-  son, his .horse stopped in the road and  began to tremble. In ,vain he urged  the animal to proceed. It would not  budge.  Suddenly the air grew oppressive  rind a faint ligh. like' distant heat  lightning appeared. Then gradually  amid'the dim> flashes, a white figure  assumed vague form beside the wagon. Durand himself commenced to  i quake. He tried to obey his will.  'After an interval, the apparition in  white spoke in a -whisper. He recognized, in fear and trembling, the voice  of his dead wife. .  "There is danjrer at home. Stay  away till morning," the voice said.  Cold chills cupt over Durand.  Scarcely had the supernatural warning been uttered --hen tlie' ghost vanished. It took th s former some timo  to recover nis nerve, and then he  I found the horse would not take a step  forward. He took off the harness and,  after two hours' work, brought the  animal out of its chill and slowly proceeded home.  Though badly scared, he did not put  much faith in the warning that had  been whispered to him in such an uncanny way. So long had Durand been  dolayed by his adventure that it was  daylight when he reached his farm  house, which has a lonely location.  Putting the horse in the stable, Durand entered the dwelling. He noticed  that a window on the ground floor  which he had fastened was unlatched.  Next he discovered muddy footprints  on the floor. As he was about to go  into his room upstairs, he saw a string  stretched across the open doorway  near the floor. It was just high enough  to have caught his foot in enteiing.  Standing to one side, Durand hooked  hij umbrella handle oyer the string  and gave the string a jerk.  A flash inside the room was accompanied by a report, and a bullet buried  itself in the wall of the hallway opposite the doorway. Durand then ran  into his room and found that the bullet had come from a pistol fastened to  the top of his bureau. The trigger  had been connected with the string  across the door. The shot would  have struck him in the breast had he  touched the string with his fopt in  entering the room. ,  Durand, who moved from the west  fiye years ago, says some one, whose  name he will not divulge, evidently  had lain in wait for him all night at.  his home, and would have killed him  but for the warning he received from  his dead wife's spirit.

California Woman  Gives up Trousers  to   Becomo    Brida.  After masquerading for over a year  in trousers, Miss Anna Mary Egger,  a clerk in a delicatessen store in Sac-  "ramento, otherwise known as "Frank  Egger, has just become a bride. During that time -"Frank" Egger was  regarded by her acquaintances as "a  rather mild-mannered youth,. but no  one, except the woman who gave her  the first suit of men's clothes, knew  of her disguise, or even suspected  that the beardless clerk was a woman.  She became engaged two years ago  in this city to Ernest F. Brunner  while she was working in a local  hotel. She was then every whit a  woman, but when her fiance _ went  away to Truckee, Mrs. M. Diepen-  brock, of this city, whom she had  nursed during her long illness, suggested that for her better protection  and convenience she don male attire.  Miss Egger succeeded in keeping  her fiance in ignorance of the change  she had made in her appearance.  When he saw her for the first time  in two years, clad for all the world  like a man, he was at first angry, but  was pacified when she promised to  again put on the dress of her sex.  "It's great to be a man." said the  bride to a reporter.  "I do not think men are half as  wicked as women. I've actually had  two women propose to-me, and I had  the hardest time in the world shaking  them. I am nearly thirty-four years  ,old, and I knew my husband when we  were both children in Switzerland. I  dressed like a man because. I could get  [better wages as a man and because 1  felt that I was better"protected in  trousers than in skirts.  AUSTRALIANS ARE PLEASED.

The assailants escaped without being identified. The postman was not  seriously injured, and was able to resume his journey and report the affair  at Rathmore postoflice. **  Nothing #of any value was taken  from the post bag, although there  were a number of letters containing  remittances to peasants from relatives in America.

SWAZI3 AND GENERAL, BOOTH.  Salvation   Head's   Quiet   Talk   With  '     ,    African   Chiefs. ,  Three of the Swazi chiefs-who recently visited England, took tea with  General Boo h at his. residence' at  Hadley Wood during their stay. They  were Prince Malunge, Nogcogco, and  Nehemiah Vilakazi. The other two  chiefs were indisposed.  After tea the General addressed his  duskyj visitors, and his words evidently made a profound impression on  their minds. Vilakazi, who is himself  ���������a preacher in his native land, trans-'  lated the address, sentence by 'sentence,'to his compatriots.  "Welcome' Welcome, my children,"  said the General, cheerily. "You are  all my children, black and white.^ I  heard you were in England, and I ex--  pressed a' desire to see you. I just  want to talk to you. I'have just  como ' back , from a visit" *to various  parts - of the' world!*. I have been to  Japan, seen the Emperor, the Con-*  gress, and 'all the. people.

"When you go back, tell your own  king from me to put his foot down and  enforce the liquor laws, Make ihem  stronger still. I am expecting to"come ,  to Africa next -year. So no doubt -I  shall be popping in to give you a  look-up. Now, what do you Bay to  that?"  Vilakazi replied, "We are all very  pleased indeed to see you,: and we  shall be all ^very pleased indeed to  see you at > our place. The drink is  already strie'ly forbidden there by order of the Government."    ..  "Salvation is'the-greatest blessing  on earth," went on the general. "Get  right yourself witH God. It will be  best for your own heart and life, and  hen you can spend your time'in putting other, people right. God help--  those .who help Him.

"I have tried what I recommend.  It is a religion which suits all nations,  all races, all colors, all conditions -of  black and white, rich and poor."  Prince Malunge said they thanked  the Generpl' very much. '"We will  try to live up to what you have told  us. We' are delighted to see you, having heard so much about you."  "Let us ask a blessing on your people, on our King, and all Africa,"  said the General. And the Swazi chiefs  knelt down with'the old Christian  warrior ' while he 'prayed with ��������� his  usual fervor, Vilakazi again trans-"  lating.  Then the General and the chiefs  were photographed together. Afterwards he presented to each a signed  photograph of himself. Finally he  shook hands warmly with them, telling them never to listen to seditious  words in their own country.  ADVICE TO WOMEN.

'My experience has been that while below one  may fiy into the most violent passion  at the merest trifle. For instance,  the life line may be held too tight or  too slack; too much air or too little  or some imaginary wrongdoing on the  part of the tender or the men above  will often cause the temper to rise.  I'have sometimes become so angry in  a similar "way that I have, given the  signal to pull up with the express intention of knocking the heads off the  entire crew, but as the surface was  neared and the weight of air decreased my feelings have'gradually undergone a change for the better until by  the time I reached the ladder and  hadkthe face glass unscrewed I had  forgotten entirely what it was I came  up for."  Penalties of Being a Bachelor.  The ancient Romans were severe  ���������vith their bachelors, who wore made  to pay heavy fines, and, worse than  that, Camillus, after the siego of Veii,  is recorded to have compelled them to'  marry the widows of the soldiers who  had fallen in war. In the -time of  Augustus married men were preferred  for public office. The Romans who  had three children were .exempted  from personal taxes, and the bachelors  h.rd to pay them. Plato condemned  single men to a fine, and at Sparta  tlioy were driven at certain times to  "tie temple of Hercules by tho -women, who castigated them in true military style. In the French settlements  of Canada women were sent over after  the mon, and the single man, that they  might be forced to marry, wore subjected to a heavy tax and to restrictions on their business and their  movements gonerally.  How Ono May Grow Old Attractively  and Gracefully.  Growing old is not a condition to b������  dreaded. Youth is delightful and full  of zest, but that Is no reason why. Its  loss should be' bemoaned. A-woman  who wishes may gain attractiveness  with each year she lives and at thirty  be far prettier, more delightful and en-  tertalnlng than at twenty. This is the  working of'the eternal law of averages  thnt never fails if one will only put It  Into operation. Only, one 'must understand the situation and the law and  abide by it accordingly, remembering  that there is no gain without loss and  that to achieve one must work. -  / .To grow old gracefully is an art, and  to step into middle age successfully" is  a triumph. It Is women who;do th'ls of  whom one hears others say she Is "better looking than when she'was^a girl"  or Is "ever so much'nicer than when  she was young." Every woman may  be this by developing- attractions  'which'a girl can never have.  ,The original mistake that many wo-"  men make as they feel their youth going is to fail to bring out the next set  of attractions. Mere youth is pleasing,  and because of it much is overlooked,  condoned or ignored^ "She is a pretty  girl," some ono says and forgives the  evidences of bad temper.  But they will admire more a woman  of middle age who has learned to control her, temper and to show sweetness  and self control -when youth would  fly Into a rage."  A. middle aged woman who has learned from life as she has gone on Is Infinitely more attracUve than a girl.  The former has gained sweetness and  strength In trial. She is more entertaining, has more tact, more knowledge of how to please. When"a girl  pleases it is simply In the fact that she  is a girl. But with .this same power in  an older woman there is knowledge  before which a girl fades Into oblivion:  The adventuress In a play is never a  girl. She is ^always a woman past  thirty years of-age. She" must have  age to be clever,-but the mental ability which a woman of that type turns  to\bad purposes may in one who Is  honest and well bred be used^for the  best ends.  For- one thing, she makes herself  helpful and particular. A certain carelessness in dressing that in a girl may  be pieturesqueness in a middle aged'  woman is slovenliness, and one who  wishes to look and be her best will not  give way to it. It Is a mistake to  think that because one's hair Is turning gray how it Is done up doesn't matter. It matters a great deal, and especial pains must be taken to arrange  It well and becomingly. To try to  wear the same style frock as youth  does is ridiculous and unbecoming.  Gowns suited to the middle aged fig-!  ure will not make one look older. They  simply harmonize and do not by extreme contrast call attention to the  fact that-a woman is not a girl.' Littl-  alrs and graces of manner .that were  pretty ln the girl are elephantine in the  woman. Instead of these there should  be a sweet dignity of manner that will  charm all.    , ."���������_*' .  There is absolutely no need to dread  advancing years If only one will advance with them in dress, .habits and  customs. - One's friends are getting  along also, and all keep on together.  But every ono. and especially a woman, should grow old attractively and  not carelessly. To be too particular  about the neatness and detail of one's  clothes, that they shall be perfectly  put together and becoming, Is Impossible. Too many women are careless  about this, and it makes them look  horrid. On the other hand, there la**  nothing prettier ln the world than a  sweet and dainty old lady, and If her  character and mind are sweet as well  she has more friends and deeper admiration than ever fall to the lot of a girl.

A common result of an injury sometimes of even a tiny scratch is chronic  ulceration, the skin disease that ea*s  deepest into the tissue and is most  pa'nful;-weakening and obstinate.  Ulcerations are brought on often (especially in the case of women) by excessive standing or kneeling. Mrs.  J. E. Berryman of 91 Catharine St.  N., Hamilton, Ont., says: "I was  suffering for a number of weeks with  a badly inflamed and ulcerated leg  and ankle. I had.used one remedy  after another with rid material benefit.* My leg was swollen in some places  to bursting and day and night I suffered severe pains.

It is rare that a clergyman of the  Church of Englnnd resigns for the  leasons' stated by the Rev' Roland  ; Allen, M.A., ���������Vicar of Chalfont St  Peter, Bucks, in the drocese of Oxford.  He was presented to the living, which  is one of the net value of ?2,500, by  St. John's College, Oxford, in 1904.  having previously served as>an S.P.G.  missionary at Pelrin, 1895-1903.' Mr.  Allen hns stated the causes operating  in hi=������ resignation in a letter- to his  parishioners.  He bays:  We see the strange and gainful  sight of men and women who-hnbitu-  ally neglect their religious' duties, or  who openly deny the truth of the  creeds, or who by the immorality of  their lives openly-.defy .the laws of  God, standing up ' as' sponsors in a  Christian church, before a Christian  minister, in the'presence of a Christian congregation, and as representatives of the church,' on behalf of_ a  new-born child, solemnly professing  their'desire for Holy Baptism, ".their  determination' to renounce the world,  the-flesh, and the devil, their stead-,  fast faith in the Creed, and their willingness to obey God's' holy ' will,  whilst they know, and everyone in the  church knows, that they themselves  neither do, nor intend to do, any of  these things. Then-they are solemnly  directed to see that the child is taught  the faith and practice -which they set  at noutrht. Or nernin, we see that snrl  sicht of the dead body of a man who  nil his life denied the claim of Jesup  Christ, or who* set at nought the  moral lnws of God, brought into  Christ's church in order thnt a service  mav be read over his body which,  whilst alive, he utterly scorned.  He admits thnt no priest is legally  bound to admit any but communicants -as --ponsors, but adds that immorality of life is no bar to the legal  use of the burial or marriige services. '   ,  Now. as parish .priest, it is my duty  to uphold morality and to defend religion, and I feel that in acquiescing  in these customs T nm neither uphold  ing morality or defending religion. 1  cannot satisfy my conscience by ex  horfing people to* refrain from doing  what is wrong, and then'in the last  resort if they will not listen to me  giving way to them.

The arguments with  which they justify their position, however, do not satisfy him. He  therefore n^ked the Bishop ol Oxford  to declare the vacancy at Christmas.   r  A Wedding Day Adventure.

Early last week word was received "at the office of the Waukesha Oil Company at Spokane that  two men were making careful inspection of the company's holdings  near Odessa, in Lincoln county,  Wash. Later \\f the week two  men showed up at the company's  office and tried to negotiate for  such large blocks of stock that the  suspicions of the officers were  aroused. ' While the strangers  were in the office, a stockholder in  the new company dropped iu and  ������������������ecognizad one of the men as an  employe of tho Standard Oil Co. in  southe-isteru Kansas eight years  ago. It is now believed that the?e  men were emissaries of the Rockefeller interests.

Thursday evening, of last week  the local Liberal association held  a large and enthusiastic meeting,  for the purpose of selecting delegates to the county convention at  Kelowna on the 1-l'th April, and to  listen to Mr. Nnden and Organizer  MoJntosh. Unfortunately tin-  organizer liad been side-jtracked at  Nelson, so the brunt of the oratory  devolved upon Mr. Naden. -  The first ���������business of the evening  was the endorsation of Mr.-Boss  as candidate'for Yale-Cariboo.  C. J. McAi-thiir was the first  speaker. He held that in politics  selfish motives governed most of  us, and patriotism ��������� to homo and  home interests should be the policy  of ������ local organization. The wider  interests of province arid Dominion could better bo discussed  at larger gatherings of the party.  'He wished to bring to the notice of  the association the faeb. that, the  Great Northern railway had not  carried out its agreomentto build  into Greenwood. He believed the  Liberal party could force the railway to. carry, out- its agreement.  He warned the association if this  were nob done the Liberals would  have difliculty in convincing the  electorate of their sincerity.  Geo. R. Naden, M, P. P., believed Mr. McArthur took a very  narrow view of the .'question, He  thought the duty of ������... public-  spirited* rnali was first to God  [winks],   his   country   [absentee  'membership], ' his neighbor [five  per cent, per month], and himself,  [the latter statement was received  with a nigh of relief]'. He thought  that tbe , people "of Greenwood  would bci in no better position in  regard to ��������� the railway were the  Conservatives' returned to power.  The logical "inference from this  statement is th'at, with Mr.,Naden.,  Deity and party are' interchangeable terms. He touched on provincial poli tics'and sat down.- ."
