A'GBNTLBMAK is never  hurry, but this should not  to paying the printer.  in  a  apply  Wants a Man.  Down in Alberni a girl is advertising for a husband. She wants a  young man, not over 42.   -  What, in the name of the little  naked god, is this western country  coming to? There is something  radically wrong with the times  when a girl has to go out after  tbem with a "want ad." It may  be the damp climate down there  at the coast that accounts for the  backwardness of the "young men  under 42." Or it may be the increased cost of living. Bents are  high and family washing has gone  up 20 per cent in the past year.  But this does not excuse the Island  swains. When duty calls, mere  material considerations should have  no weight in deciding their course  of action. The only way the  Island bachelors can redeem themselves is to offer themselves iu a  body to the fair advertiser and let  her take'her choice. J  A girl has a right to marry if  she wants to. By the limits of  conventionality situ 'to required to  wait until an acceptable swain offers her his hand, and latoh key.  Under these circumstances.., what  is the first duty of a single 'man ?  Every man who has attained his  majority should paste on a conspicuous place on the outer surface  of his hat these -words, "Will you  be my wife?" Justice and gallantry demand it. Conditions warrant it. The girls would appreciate it. Every single man should  he so labelled. Then, at last,  would the weaker sex have "equal  rights" and an even break. A  girl has a right to tell a man she  will be a sister to him. Man also  should have tbe refusal privilege,  provided he could show cause.  Otherwise he should come through.  It is a crying shame that a girl  should have to blow in her pin  money on publicity when she could  use it to much greater advantage  on new trimmings for last year's  hat.���������Fernie Free PreBs.

Talking about war; a soldier  in Victorio leaned out of a barrack  window and shot an officer. No  doubt they will' hang him, which  seems absurd,I as a lot of money  had been spent training him in the  gentle art of killing. The difference, however, seems to be that he  killed a man whom he bated, in  his own behalf, which is criminal,  whereas he should have confined  himself to killing somebody ho-  didn'6 even know on somebody  elso'B behalf, which ia glorious.  Then, instead of being hanged he  would have been given a medal,  aud possibly allowed to starve to  death on the Euibankmeut.���������D.  ih. McKunzio.  In Pbuenix, D. J.

A number of people stood on the  piazza of a summer hotel leading into  Washington, now looking at their  watches and 'now up the road as if expecting something or somebody. Among  them was a young lady dressed evidently for nn automobile ride.  "If he gets here at 3 o'clock he'll be  an hour ahead of time," said one.  "What time Is he due in  Washington?" asked another.  "At 0."  "What's up on It?"  "Oh, nothing valuable.   It's a gentleman's   race   against   time.    A   dozen  pairs of gloves are all there Is In IL"  .   "Here he comes uow."  The last one of these remarks was  scarcely spoken before a minute cloud  of dust was easily discernible up the  road. An automobile appeared a mere  speck aud began to grow in apparent  size. In -mother minute it pulled up  nt tbe stops of the hotel. A young  man jumped out, culling for gasoline  nnd such other automobile equipments  as he needed. _ The lady mentioned  stepped up to him and said:  ".Mr. Champlln. I believe."  "1 am," replied tho auto man. bowing'and trying to get hold of his cap  to pull It off.  "My eoiiis[n.,.Ui[rr.iphrey Cook, knowing that 1 was here, tlmt I adore auto-  mobiling and that I wish to go to the  city, has  written  me  that, you  would  stop   here  aud   possibly   would   Cake  me in."  Mr. Champlln hesitated.  "I'll be uo trouble," the lady added.  "Really   I   should   be  delighted   for  your company, but in case of any de-  Jay I may have to proceed at breakneck speed."  "The faster you go the better I sl'all  like It."  "Very well.   I'm an hour ahead and  If nothing breaks shall have no trouble  In reaching the goal on time.  Are you  ready ?"  "1 am."  "Step in. Miss��������� I beg your pardon.  I didn't get your name."  "Hood���������Jaqueline Hood," replied the  glrL  Mr. Champlln started. "Jack Hood!"  he exclaimed.  "The same. Is there anything about  Jack Hood that you don't like?"  "I've heard she's the worst feminine  daredevil the world has ever seen."  "You've also heard probably that  she knows all about an auto. Perhaps  ehe may aid you in case of trouble."  x By this time Miss Hood was settling  herself comfortably in the auto, tying  , 'her veil under ber chinT There was a  singular look on Champlin's face. Ele  had bet Humphrey Cook that he would  drive his auto to New York and return by a given time. Might not Cook  have sent this girl to delay him?  "I'm sorry. Miss Hood," he said,  "but I've changed my mind about taking you."  "1 haven't changed mine about going."  A bewitching smile hovered on her  lips, and her eyes danced with mischief.  "Very well." he said, 'Til take you.  But remember that in case there's any  rascality perpetrated I shall treat you  just as If you were a man."  ���������'Good! That's the way I wish to be  treated.".  During this scene the onlookers hnd  gathered around tbe machine/ and at  the last words some of the men and  nil the women clapped their hands.  Cbamplin got in, and the couple rolled  away, tollowed by cheers and the waving of handkerchiefs. In another minute nothing could be seen of them but  a tiny dust cloud.  For an hour Miss Hood entertained  the driver of the auto In such a way  as to make him forget everything but  her. Nevertheless his eye was on tho  speed gauge and the clock, and nothing pertaining to winning his race was  neglected. There are women who can  do more with a man in an hour than  other women can do in a lifetime.  Miss Hood simply absorbed him.  "Have you time to stop for a glass  of milk?" she asked.  "Certainly."  "Well, there's a farmhouse off the  road up there. ��������� Would you mind getting one for me?"  Mr. Champlin stopped before tha  gate and went up to the house. A woman answered his knock at the door,  and he went inside. He was no sooner  out of sight than Miss Hood jumped  out, took a small nickel plated monkey  wrench from her pocket, unscrewed a  nut and put it In her pocket. She had  not finished her work before Champlln  reappeared with a glass of milk In bis  band. Miss Hood was awakened to  his presence by hearing the breaking  of glass on stone. Looking up. she  saw Champlln the picture of astonishment nnd chagrin. He, knew that he  had been "done."  Striding with n quick step to tho  auto, he said sternly:  "You know what I said before leaving���������that  If there was any  rascality  perpetrated I would treat you just as  I should n man."  "Oh, yes." she replied, making a face  . at him; "I remember that"        v     ,  :     "Give me what you have removed."  "I decline to do so." ���������  Champlln made a dive for ber.   She  ���������Idled around the auto.    He followed.  #baalng her In a circle.   She was, too j  fleet for him.   He was strong, but she  wus* agile.   At every stop there would  be the pretty face brimming with mis-,  chief, her eyea riveted on' him  that  she should be ready for bis slightest"  move.   Finally be gave it up.

Please don't I  ask me why I prefer uot to do so."  She cast  down   ber  eyes,  and   her'  meaning   was  plain.   She  had   "gone  soft" on Champlin.  She handed him the nut He replaced It, and in another minute they  were shooting ugaiu along the road.  Cuauipliu was delighted. Cook had  very nearly got ahead of him���������would  have got ahead of him had It uot been  that the girl bail taken' so great a  fancy (o him tjaat sheTiadu't the heart  to "do" him. What a splendid Joke it  would be on Cook and the party who  were present at the making of the bet  when 'Champlin aud Miss Hood rolled  up to the ��������� hotel on time! Miss  Hood hadn't eveu asked for the gloves  bur cousin had offered her to help hi in  win them. Cliaiiiplln told her thnt as  soou as he received the stakes he  would give them to her und she could  change-them for Indies' gloves. Instead of being pleased at this, she appeared to be very much hurt. Champlln begged her lo tell him why, and  she replied that she had not consented  to be a tui-iK-oat for a bribe. This left  him to understand that she had done  it all for hi in. There was a very tender scene between them, at the end of  which the misunderstanding was made  up. and for the rest of ihe journey  Miss Cook held the steering wheel,  while Mr. Chauipliri's arm was about  her waist.  - There were no more delays. On approaching tlie city, having still an  hour's leeway, they concluded to stop  al a convenient place and get the dust  out of their th ion is with an fee.  Champlln left the lady for a brief season while he poured out something  more effective than au Ice In dolug  away with dust. On rejoining ber they  partook of the Ices nud resumed their  journey.  "What are you smiling nt?" asked  Miss Hood of her companion.  "Oh, 1 was thinking how surprised  that cousin of yours will be when we  roll up on time. That was a rascally  proceeding of his, and It deserved to-  fall. If you hadn't been' tho dearest  girl In the world It would have succeeded. But just thiuk of his surprise  when he hears of the other part of it."  lie managed to get hold of her hand  with his left, holding on to the wheel  with one hand, and they bowled along  in this way until they met another  conveyance.  And now the dome of the capitol  with the figure perched upon it loomed  up faint in the distance. It was not  long before the outskirts of the city  were reached, and half an hour before-  the time limit had expired they stopped  at   the   ladies'   entrance   to   the      hotel.     A   liveried   servant   advanced  aud said:  "Mr. Cook and "a party of ladies and  gentlemen are iu a private dining room  waiting for you, sir." \  Entering the room, Champlin expected to find Cook eager to know why his  scheme had failed. Instead Cook handed his cousin a dozen pairs of ladles'  gloves. After this bo put,out his hand  to Champlin.  "I congratulate you, old boy, with all  my heart on your engagement"  Champlin stood mute with astonishment  "Champ, old boy," added Cook, "you  need an explanation. To make you  lose I sent my cousin Jack out to effect nn entrance into your nuto and delay yon on the way. If she succeeded  she was to have a dozen pairs of  gloves for a reward. She has lost the  gloves."  "That's plain," snid Champlin.  "Well, there was a bet between Jack  and me of another dozen pairs of  gloves against a hundred cigars that  she would make you propose to her on  the way."  .Champlin looked so many emotions,!  of which astonishment and sbume-  facedness were the most prominent  that all burst into a laugh, in which  he finally joined. Then, turning to Miss  Hood, he advanced, with a puzzled, in- *  quiring look on his face. t  "Was it all a sham?" he asked.

In connection with Mr. Birrell's recent speech at the Eighty Club and  his eloquent utterances on the question of imperial federation, it is interesting to note a very little known  precedent for colonial representation  in tbe British Parliament. Among the  state papers for the year 1536 may be  read a letter from John Bartelet to  Henry VIII.'s minister, Thos. Cromwell, stating that, in accordance with  the recent act, the mayor and aldermen had chosen Mr. Pryseley to attend the English Parliament as the  representative of Calais, and that hn  pri  such a hardened villain as to' delude  so many women.

The most interesting figure in the  industrial life of New Brunswick is  Alexander Gibson, who has just attained his. ninetieth birthday, and is  still able to walk about the streets of  the town of Marysville, of which' he  was the founder. ,,   , ,  Many years ago, Mr. Gibson', after'  'having arisen from the position of a  young day laborer in a sawmill to that  of the owner of a mill, disposed of the  latter property and removed to the  site of the present town of Marysville,  on the Nashwaak River.' The Nash-  waak'is a tributary of the St. John,  which it enters near Fredericton.  There was an abandoned mill on the  property when Mr. Gibson began operation.s He bought a large area of  timber land, cleared the stream arid  constructed driving darns, built a new  mill ancl brick tenement houses for  workmen; built a large church ami  presented it to tlie Methodist, denomination; and, in short," established n  thriving town on the'site of the old  abandoned sawmill. He also opmted  a sawmill at Blackvillo, on the Mir.a-  iiiic.hi, assisted in building a line of  railway to Woodstock in one direction, t and to Cratham in another, and  became a railway magnate as well as  "the lumber king" of New Brunswick.  Mr. Gibson himself took no part in  public life, but one of his sons was for  a-term' a member of tho'Parliament of  Canada.  In Mr. Gibson's later years he mot  with business reverses, and the immense property went into the hands ol  a company in which he had a large interest. Recently he retired, and the  property of tho company, which became involved in legal difficulties, will  be sold to satisfy the claims of creditors in'Canada and England. The cotton mill has already been purchased  by the Canadian Colored Cotton Co-  Both sawmills and cotton mills continue to be operated, and Marysville  is still a thriving town���������a monument  to the foresight and energy of a man  who was compelled to earn his own  living from his boyhood clays, and who  produced a property that is to-day  worth some millions of dollars.

This is the only instance  in history of anything like colonial representation at Westminster, unless,  indeed, we reckon one or two exceptional occasions when colonial grievances have been voiced at the bar of  the House of Commons, as they were  so brilliantly by Benjamin Franklin,  when Burke said the scene reminded  him of "a master examined by a parcel of schoolboys."  The  "Red   Earl."  Earl Spencer, who recently died at  Althorpo Park, Northamptonshire,  was almost the lust of the. old school  of politicians that link us with P>ea-  consfiekl and Gladstone, whoso great  friend tbe earl was. He had been  longer in the Lords than its present  leader, for he succeeded his father to  the earldom as far back as J857. Soon  after this he became attached to tlio  household of the Prince Consort, and  subsequently to that of the late King,  when Prince of Wales.  He was the first Lord-Lieutenant of  ! Ireland created by Mr. Gladstone,  and lie has been a member of every  Liberal administration since then,  excoptins tho present. There is no  doubt that, but for bad health, ho  would have been a member of the  present Cabinet.  It was in tho clays of his lord lieutenancy that ho was nicknamed tho  "Red Earl," a title that has only fallen into disuse since age whitened the  great red beard which used to spread  over his lordship's chest.  other medicine will bo of such great  aid to mothers in summer as Baby's  Own Tablets.

The Queen's Own, now at Aldershot.  dates back to April, 18G0, when an order .was  issued  uniting, a  rifle  company at Barri'ei another at Whitby and  four   in   Toronto  into  one   battalion.  During the stirring days of the Trent  affair,    the   outside    companies  were  dropped, and the organization became  a purely city regiment of ten compan-.  ies.    Its   first  active   service   was   in  IS64; its second, in 1866, when it'took  part in the battle of Limeridge in the  Niagara Peninsula.   Some of its members served in the composite regiment  under Col. (now Lord) Wolseley with  the Red River Expedition of 1870.   It  also was present, under Col. Otter, in  the Western trouble of 1885,  notably  at Cut Knife Creek. - It has also beeti  called upon for active service in connection with several provincial industrial   disturbances.    Lord   Roberts   is  its honorary colonel, and Gen. Otter  was once its commanding officer. Many  of the past and present officers of the  militia have graduated from its ranks  ��������� One of the most unique features of  the regiment is the fact that every officer, past or present, has risen from  the ranks.   Every private is therefore  a potential colonel, and it has often  occurred that a private in the rank-:  had  in  civilian"^life- a  higher  social  status than his'captain orbther superior   officer.     This   explains   why   so  many prominent officers of the militia saw their first service in this unique corps.   It also explains why the  regiment  is ,'able  to   take   expensive  trips abroad without assistance from  the   Government.    One  trip  to   New  York, lasting three or four days, cost  the regiment over ten thousand  dollars.   The expenses of the present trip  to Aldershot, which will require seven  weeks,  will  be borne mainly :by  Sir  Henry Pellatt himself. '  WOMAN'S CHARMS  Of Skin,  Hands and  Hair  Preserved.

Sir Walter'Parratt Has Brother Living  <    ' In  Montreal.  .- Sir Walter Parratt, who, as organist  of St. George's Chapel Royal, Windsor,  and. Master of the King's Music, had  charge of the musical arrangements at  King Edward's funeral, and is already  at. work ���������preparing the music for the  Coronation of King George the Fifth,  ���������is-a cousin of Mrr- John Parratt, for  many years well known \c Montreal  business men as an agent! Mrs. Parratt, thanks largely to the recognition  of her" talents 'as a pianist by Prof.  Couture, immediately after her arrival in the city,,soon gained an enviable position in musical circles in  Montreal, acting for several years as  assistant accompanist to the Philharmonic Society, and as accompanist to  the Montreal Amateur Operatic Club.  Her son ancl daughters were also useful members of both those organiza-'  tions.   r   ,  Sir  Walter   Parratt,   who   has   for  some time'been.an honorary "fellow of  Magdalen College, Oxford, and since  1908 professor of music in the University,   recently  received   the honorary  .degree   of Musical   Doctor   at Cambridge.   In presenting him for the degree tho public orator made a point  of referring to Sir Walter's abnormal  memory.   This was illustrated by an  incident related by tho warden of St.  Michael's College, Tenbury.  While on  a visit, to the college on one occasion,  Sir  Walter   Parratt^  who  is a  great  chess player (he is president of  the  Oxford   University  Chess  Club,   and  has  been  twice captnin of the eight  ohoson   to  play  against  Cambridge),  undertook to play two of the company,  in consultation, without looking at the  board.   The game lasted an hour, and  during that  lime  the Master of  the  Kiug's Music sat at the piano playing  continuously   from   memory   excerpt*1  from' the great masters, and directing  tho movement of his'chessmen on tlie  unseen board at the same time.   In addition, he maintained a conversation  with others present in the loom, wh-j  did all they could   to   distract   him  without success.  When the game wa.������  finished, Sir V*/alter, who was the victor in the chess game, explained that  besides playing chess and the piano,  and  engaging in animated  conversation, he had been speculating on the  chances an unfortunate fly had of escaping from a spider's web in which  it had become entangled.  Sir Walter Parratt, by virtue of his  official position, occupies apartments  in the cloisters at Windsor Castle. He  was born at Huddersfield and educated privately, his first musical appointments as an organist being in country  parish churches. He is Past Grand  Organi*st of the Grand Lodge of England, A. F. and A. M.; president of  the Royal College of Organists, and  past examiner in music to the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, London and Wales.  The Delayed Carto������n.  The preparation of the cartoon -in  Punch is not always an easy matter.  Writing some years ago in The Magazine of Art, the late Linley Sambourne  said: "Difficulties in the production  of cartoons sometimes arise in the  impossibility of foretelling what, not  a day only, but a week may bring  forth. In December, 1871, when^Hin  Royal Highness the Prince of Wales,  to the profound sorrow of the entire  nation, hovered between life and  death. Tenniel drew two cartoons, to  be used as events might dictate. To  the intense relief and joy of all, the  one that was issued was called 'Sirs-  2>ense,' with some beautiful verses entitled 'Queen, People and Princess.  Three Hearts in One; while the other,  a gri f stricken figure of Britannia,  lay almost forgotten in the engraver's  bureau, but was remembered, and had  unhappily occasion to appear thirteen  years after, oh April 5, 1884, to note  the sudden loss of His Royal Highness the Duke of Albany."

Clifford Sifton, ex-Minister of  the Interior, in an address recently  on the peat supplies of Canada said  among other things:  "Wo, in Canada and the United  States, have been living amid a bountiful supply of the natural resources  of wealth. Wo have hardly known  what it was to be in need of anything  that is really necessary to existence.  In this City of Ottawa ever since its  existence there has been a constant  struggle to got rid of the wastage of  manufacturing which, in other situations, would have been of great commercial value.  Ottawa is, therefore, a typically difficult place in which to get people  to realize the value of fuel. Some of  us who stand hero were born upon  farms, upon where, when fuel was  required, it was only necessary to go  out and cut it���������the destruction of the  tree in itself was regarded as adding  value to the land from which it was  cut. We are, however, coming, if  somewhat slowly, to a better realization of what these things mean and,  among other questions, we are beginning to realize what the fuel problem  means to great masses of people afU*r  the supply of timber has been so far  depleted that cheap wood fuel is no  lorigor available.

To-day all .'Scotland  .rises up and calls'its authoK.blessed,  for the canny Scot calculates that'll tiring each season tourists, spend-.at  least $1,000,000 in seeing the spot?  made historical by the great master of  the English'language.   .,     ,    .,  The bard of Abbotsford didn't Io3e  by the poem either. He wouldn't sell  his rights for a mess of pottage;'as-did  John Milton with his "Paradise Lost"  or Goldsmith' for some of his classics.''  Scott got $10,000 for the copyright  ancl received more in after life.*-  None of Scott's former works vas  ever looked for with half the anxiety  as was the case with "The Lady of the  Lake." The cantos as they were sent  to the .press were read to select circles  by James Ballantyne, and popular  opinion greatly favored them.' Everywhere it was anticipated that a great  poem would appear, and when it was  published it excited an extraordinary  sensation. .  The first edition of -2,050 was soon  sold out, and then followed in-quick  succession four editions, so that in a  few months 20,000 copies -were sold.  AH the criticisms of the poem were in  its favor.  In his introduction to the 1830 edition Scott tells how the poem came to  be   written.   The   Highlanders,   with  their ancient manners, habits and customs, seemed to him to be particularly  adapted  to poetry.    He was also- familiar with the country, where he was  in the habit of spending the autumn,  while the custom of James IV.���������and  more especially James V.���������of walking  in disguise through Scotland afforded  him a hint of which he made the most.  Scott took groat pains to verify the  accuracy of the local circumstances of  the poem, one day going into Perthshire to ascertain if King James could  actually have ridden from Loch Ven-  nachar to Stirling Castle  within the  time supposed in the poem, and found  that it  was quite practicable.    And,  notwithstanding the great success of  the poem, Scott never grew conceited  over it.  "Never was,he a partisan of his own  poetry," Ballantyne relates, reciting  an anecdote. Being one day in Scott's  library shortly after the poem was  published, he asked Miss Sophia Scott  how she liked it. She replied with  perfect simplicity:  "Oh, I have not read it! Papa says,  there's nothing so bad for young peo-'  pie as reading bad poetry."  crippled er  Suffered' Tortures Until "Frult-a-tives"  Took    Awuy   The  rain.

There are 132,000 people in  Winnipeg, including Jimmy Ash-  down.  ar-  A Chinese washerman was  rested in Seattle for opium smuggling. The police found upon the  premises $150,000 in gold coin.  This iR no pipe dream, for the  yellow boy had the yellow boys, although it will never be known how  the cops got ko much money to the  police station without being held  up. Verily, Seattle is losing its  rep.  The trail to our ambitions is  often filled with tlie debris of exploded air castl. s, aud k.auntt-d  with the spectres of deferred hopes.

''He takes," said Mayor Sheehan'  with a smile, "too much credit.  He remind* ine of thv. my use farmer. This fanner came home one  night frura a banquet, and throwing himself down in -a ' rocking  chair before the stov������, he sighed :  . ''I'm about tired out.

Haggan,  and judging from the way in which  he sabres the shoestring boosters of  wild-cat mining companies that  journal should soon become .a  power in the land. In trying to  save the sucker from the shark,  that honest journal will get neither  thanks or money from. either of  them, but its editor will have the  satisfaction of making an attempt  to save fools from a monetary  sacrifice.

'���������See that he doesn't cry," said  the mother as she went out.  -   "But if he does?".  "Ah, cut his tongue out," replied the mother carelessly.  When she came back she asked  the little boy: "Did baby cry  much?" ���������'  "He tried to once," was the reply.  "And what did you do ?"  "I  cut his tongue out as you*  said, mother."   Then he stopped.  The frightened mother ran inside  and saw, to her horror, that her  criminal injunction had been carried out. ���������  In a fit of rage the mother seized  the boy who had obeyed her '��������� an d  threw him against a wall.
