A Facetious Entertainer
John W. Bengongb, Canada's
oldest and most famous cartoonist,
came to the front 1*.��6 Monday
evening in the Star Theatre, and
punched John Barleycorn to a
Verdnn finish. John was right on
top of a three-decked water wagon,
and with voice and pencil he soon
made the demon mm look like a
hobo Gentile in Jerusalem. Mr.
Bengongh, a generation ago, was
editor and artist of Grip, probably
the best comic paper, in a cartoon-
ical sense that Canada has ever
known. The Grip has been defunct
for many suns, bnt its memory
clings to John's upper stope.. like
perfume to the shattered remnants
of a broken ���vase, and it would not
surprise the writer to see Bengongh
again breathe life into Grip, and
make it a power in the broad Dominion. He will visit New Denver next week, and for the fin. t
time gaze upon the grandly mag-
nifident scenery that sorround-.

More than half of the people
who are striking daggers into John
Barleycorn are slowly killing them-
selver from the excessive use of
tea, coffee, meat and tobacco.
They gag at the sight of one gnat,
and swallow others of a different
color. ��� 	
The man who is filled with bate,
envy, spite and vindictiveness towards his neighbor, eats too much,
and does not get enough of fresh
air and exercise. Tbis makes him
sick morally, mentally and physically, and tortured by a rebellious
liver, and a diseased imagination.
Such individuals in their dementia
break loose every little while and
poison the mental atmosphere
that surrounds them. Such unfortunates should be treated in a
sanitarium until right living brings
back love, reason, and good will.
