"p��j nni-,w  lead that some of the men, with $250 or $300 to their  credit, have received nothing beyond $20 paid them  when they first landed at the Cape In some instances a portion of the pay dne has been given to-  gether with furlough, and the men, in an utterly  strange country, have been let go to become the prey  of harpies and sharks. All this could have been  avoided had the War Office simply notified the accredited representatives in London of the colonial governments, that men from their several contingents had  arrived* and where they were, and thus brought the  young fellows into touch with friends, Representations have been made by the agents-general to the  War Office authorities on the subject, and it is to be  hoped they will have the desired effect. We recently  called attention to the case of a man invalided home  from South Africa, who was put on the train at Quebec with but $3 in his pocket to defray expenses to  New Westminster. The man was shipped in a colonist car, without blankets, although he was suffering  from a broken leg. There is much to indicate that  the War Office is in need of a thorough overhauling,  and tins it will probably get on the return of Lord  Roberts from South Africa.  Tint London (Eug.) School Board im just started  its 19th session of night schools.      The  number of  pupils attending these schools is steadily  increasing,  124*000 having come under  instruction last year, as  against 109,000 in the previous session,      Heretofore  fees were charged, but it has now been decided to give  night school instruction frfee.    This seems to be rather  reversing the natural order of things.   As these night  schools are  intended for   persons who are employed  during the day,  one would imagine  that  the pupils  could from their earnings contribute something towards defraying expenses.     Those attending the day  schools are charged a fee, small, it is true, but nevertheless a fee      To curtail expenses,   the  board has  succeeded in obtaining several voluntary school premises.      Three- hundred and sixty-three schools have  been opened for general instruction,   sixteen  for special instruction in  commercial subjects;   and nine in  science and art.      Experience has  proved that thtse  night schools are productive, of the best results.    The  very fact that they are so  largely patronized shows  that there is a big percentage of people anxious to improve their education,   and these are found to be apt  .pupils,.-    What is to prevent the general introduction  of the night school system in Canada?      Here public  school education costsjnothing, and is compulsory���-a  condition to  which must be  attributed the fact that  the  percentage' of illiteracy is much smaller in  this  country than in any other.    But the young Canadian  generally engages in the battle of life at an early age  ���>*�����-  > -   ���. ��� ",''!;  I-   ��  '"V L  r.  I  a  '���:  ': f  IV 5  r  j!

We do not anticipate any trouble on this  score. The hours suggested for the ringing of the  belt are the most unlikely hours for a fire to break out.  Besides, people would quickly discern between a fire  alarm *nd the few tolls necessary to announce the correct time. Public feeling is strong on the point, and  as the arrangement suggested would cost nothing and  would obviate a ^reat deal of inconvenience reluctantly  endured, it is to be hoped the committee will act in  accordance with a suggestion so liberally endorsed.  A significant feature of the present campaign in  Tale-Cariboo is the   apparent lack of interest of the  newspapers.      Whik the  majority of the papers are  professedly  Conservative, yet  there is very little in  the editorial columns that would seem to indicate their  political inclinations.    Indeed, it seems as if the press  was gradually drifting in  the_.direction of independ"  ence     This may be accounted for by the fact that neither the papers nor the people are any longer content  to have their politics  made  for them by  a few self-  seeking politicians whose only aim is to secure prefer-'  ment and the spoils of office.    It may be we are coming to that point when party lines  will be completely  obliterated.  Tun Manitoba F>ec Pre?* has issued a neat souvenir on the occasion of its going into its new building. It is strange that in recounting the birth and  growth of that publication the name of the man who  was iudissolubly connected with it should have been  omitted. We refer to Mr.Wui.lv Luxton. Mr.  Luxton was at the helm of that paper when Manitoba  needed a champion, aud under his guidance the Frai  Prr��a grew to a position of great influence. Although  he is no longer a force in Manitoba affairs, he did  much to make Manitoba what it is to-day. It would  not have been out of place to have at least referred to  Mr. Luxton in the souvenir.  Thk labor men hold their convention to-day, when  the course of organized labor in the present contest  will be decided upon. It seems scarcely probable  that they will make the mistake of bringing out an  independent candidate. This is the rock on which  organized labor has so often gone to pieces.  Whilk the Liberal nominees in Victoria are exceedingly popular gentlemen, there is not the slightest  possibility of their election.

" This  is a smoking compartment, madam," politely said  the owner of the Shamrock." '��� It is not," the old  lady answered with asperity. ** I begyour pardon,"  persisted the gentleman, pointing to the legend on  the window, " it is/1 " I don't care/' she retorted.  ** At any rate, I never allowed any one to smoke in  my presence." Sir Thomas shrugged his shoulders  and by-and-by produced a favorite pipe, the gift of an  exalted personage, and commenced to smoke A  moment later the irate female had snatched the pipe  from him and flung it far out of the carriage.  Quick as thought���he is not an Irishman for nothing  ���the aggrieved smoker lifted her pet dog and hurled  htm after the pipe. The lady raved and the knight  smiled shamefacedly until the next station was  reached, when the pwnerofthe deprived dog gave  the proprietor of the missing pipe in charge. Of  course, the latter protested���emphatically���rand the  argument bade fair to last for manv hours while  justice stood undecided by. But the difficulty was  happily solved by the arrival of the little dog carrying the pipe in his mouth. P. G.  HUSTLE AND BUSTLE.  You can't tell the size of a fire by the amount of  bia*e and smoke. The other day a stable and loft  took fire that made more reflection and sent forth  more smoke while the affair lasted, than the ten story  building down town that was demolished a week  later. To see the flames and the dense volumes of  smoke that poured skyward, you would have thought  half the block on which the old thing stood was  doomed ;' but twenty minutes settled the whole business. There are people that, to hear them talk and  see them fuss, you would think that they were the  only ones on earth that were doing anything worth  while. You have only to look a little closer, and  know a little more about them, and you find there is  a good deal more wind than wheat going through  their machine There is considerable difference between "hustle" and M bustle/\ If people would  hustle there would be less cause for bustle, says  Solomon in the Leather Journal. Bustle is caused by not  being up to the mark either in grip or application. The  bustler is a man who is always in a dead sweat either  because he does not know his business or because he has been asleep or loitering when he should  have been at it The hustler is the man who is  14 in it" from th* drop of the hat, and for all he is  worth Hustling and bustling may look alike, but  the results tell the tale. You can/t; to save your  soul, tell a turtxip seed from wild mustard as they  He side by side in your hand. But plant them and  you will soon find out.  The hustler *' gets there ;M the bustler is just as  far behind on the last lap as he is at first. Don't try  to hide laziness and supiueness behind a show of  activity.

He was often to be seen creeping by the first    brother and six other  light of a winter's morning through tKe great gate of    ' * -  the lower ward of Windsor Castle  into the  narrow  back streets of the town.     He used to wear a roque-  laure, beneath which appeared a pair of thin legs encased in dirty silk stockings.     In wet  weather  he  ..,   carried a large umbrella aud walked on pattens.     He  lived in  one of the houses of the military knights,  then called Poor Knights, to which body be.'.belonged.  Except the eccentric possessor, no human  being  entered his abode, and he dispensed  wijh nil  domestic  service.     Dinely in the morning went forth to make  his frugal purchases for the day-a faggot, a candle.  a small loaf, and  perhaps a herring.     The  Poor  Knight of Windsor might  have  fared better,   but  every  penny   except   those  laid   out   for   absolute  necesssaries of life was capitalized in the promotion of  an  absording and quixotic scheme.     Regular attendance at St. George's Chapel was Dinelv's duty ���  and thefflong blue  mantle which the Poor   Knights  wore covered his shabby habiliments,  as the dingy  morning cloak hid red herrings and farthing candles  Such were some of the phases-sombre,  squalid  phases-of Sir John's existence. But there were  -periods when the Poor Knight assumed the externals  ofamtocraticopulet.ee..

The actor Allryn,  founder of Dulwich college, enjoyed the lucrative  post of " keeper of the King's wild beasts or master  of the Royal Bear Garden in Southwark." The  profits account for the fortune of which he died  possessed.  A BIT OF HISTORY.  The destruction of the Roman  Catholic  cathedral  in Pekin by the Boxers, says the Daily Chronicle,   is  a reminder that Catholic missionaries have been laboring in  China since  1582.     It  was one of the first  fields selected by the Jesuits after the foundation of  the famous order.   Pope Gregory XIII, made it their  special  preserve,  and  forbade  any other  religious  order to enter China,     This restriction was removed  in i6Si, and the Dominicans appeared on   the scene.  Then arose a  bitter controversy over the  "Chinese  rites M or the concessions made by the Jesuits to secure  converts.     This included a modified   worship of ancestors,   marks of homage to   Confucius,   and permission to use the Chinese word  for sky or  heaven  as equivalent to God.     The Dominicans   denounced  these practices as idolatrous ;   the Jesuits maintained  that they were  innocent traditional   customs of immemorial antiquity    The controversy was prolonged  tor close on a century, and was not terminated until  CCvC-C'^SMcilfe  Vr  'r     "A  >AI  .

The mine is not turning out as much ore  as it is able to produce, and the management say this  is due to the factttbat the smelter is not capable of  handling more material than is at present shipped  from the mine. The additions and alterations recently made at the Northport concern have not been  sufficient, and must be materially extended to meet  the growing requirements of the mines.
