He made f'-iends  with   all   the  riegrb  delineators' who"  .visited. Toronto.  One of his old friends  ', in after years'was'' George Christy, of  the-original   Christy   minstrels,   and  . Dave Heed, bf Wood's  minstrels.   He  ���knew,Birch/of; Birch & Donniker's  troupe,   Cu nan's   troupe,   Buckley's  serenaders,      Campbell's      minstrels,  Skill* & Gaylor's combination, Duprez  &,.Green's, and others  then known as  the leading travelling companies.  -���'About 1800 Cool organized a troupe  '.-��� -      ���      i-  '  ���jvith William.and George Grainger,  Pat Redmond; with . three or four  others, and Frank Somers as agent,  and hilled all the small towns within  a hundred miles of Toronto.

Pearson said Cool would make  a good man for the show, for as an end  man with the bones, Cool was unexcelled. '.'.-���  The engagement was made and Cool  started off. Ho had quit his trade, and  thought that as he was making hia  start witii agood company, he would  make the t<*ur not only one of business,  btitot pleasure. Iu fact it was his  honeymoon, for he married Miss Edna  Stephenson Taylor of Toronto, and his  bride accompanied him -ot. this minstrel tour. .-"������> ���__-  7 .!'-  After this tour was over, Cool and  Charlie Reynolds, Wallie Thomas and  Bobby "Newcomb, formed a troupe aud  travelled in the States. Jack Haverly  was their agent. Then they sold out  to Sam!

He  engaged with Sam Hague, of Hague's  Minstrels, in Liverpool, aud after that  engagement he played in London with  Moore & Burgess at the St. James'  Hall, with NUgent at the Royal Cam-  liridge, and with Jennings at the Oxford. He visited all the leading cities  and was well received.   ,  'His great feature was "Nicodemus  Johnson," a song and dance that he  got from Joe Murphy in the sixties.

And in  these days when so much is heard of  the struggle for life and contemporary  pessimism, Irish drollery becomes an  even more precious asset iu the world's  wealth than in times less sophisticated  and strenuous. Most certainly it was  not to Ireland that. Horace Walpole  applied that terse phillipic, "The whole  nation, hitherto has been void of wit  and humor, and even incapable of relishing it," for if there is one thing  more notable than an Irishman's own  fun it is hii great appreciation of a  good story told to him.  These are some of the reasons why it  is at times difficult for any stra.ngers  to appreciate the Irish properly. You  may remember how Lord MorriB summed up the difficulties of the Irish  question:���  "It is just the caseot a quick-witted  people governed by an intensely slow  one."*  And what is true of politics is also  true of humor.  Au Irish landlord delivered himself  of tbis :���  "Home Rule is always advocated by  those who can't rule their own houses,  and daren't call their names their own  within earshot of their wives.!'  An Irish member of Parliament once  within the House of-Commons vilified  tbe Chief Secretary in a superb "hull"-:  "The right honorable gentleman,  who so shamefully misgoverned my  unfortunate countty. has *pttfchonor'so"  ..-r-,��      -   7^r.  '.?*-    "*-^:-' r-w    .      -<  far behind bim that be, can uot'see it  when it is staring hitii iu the fitce."  Wit does not belong only to the  lower classes, as was shown by * the  Irish bishop, who, having been entertained witb every known legend of the  ghost which haunted tbe room in  which he was to sleep bu a certain  night, woke to find the ghostly apparition calmly gazing at him. The cleric  was not'in tiie least taken aback', but  entering into conversation with him  asked _tini who be was. Ou tbe spectre proclaiming bis identity, the bishop  replied'!���'-  **.' Will I ford the. str^me anywhere  here!".   A'  ���    "Bedad,    ye  may,   but   you'll   be  drowned," 7 /"...  "Is there onny boat at all?" ;  "Faith, there is Pat Mulligan's on  tbe.other side."  "How wijl I get the. boat across to  fetch rae?"  "How the dMl should I know ? All  tbe same you would if you forded tbe  strame for lt.".A  And that is. tlie kind of impasa whioh  seems, characteristic of so much tbat  goes on iu tbd' distressful country.���  JIomeGord6n{H Author of "Reminiscences Of an Irish Land Agent."

EVENTS AND  GOSSIP  The story is told of a well-known  man who, not finding bis wife, went  out into the kitbhen where the.laundress was husy ^ith the family linen,  aud.inquired : ''Bridget, do you know  anything of hj^^wife'e whereabouts?"  "Yis, sor," replied Bridget, "I put  them in the wash.'.' '  A certain old hiald had a timorous  admirer who Confided to a man  friend that be baa tried ia vain to propose, but alwayiTlacked tbe necessary  reasonably found  with Mr. Campbell  In this connection, and any one who  Things Talked of During the  Week in Nelson.  The refusal of President Doull of the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company to sign the agreement between  the city and his company that had  been prepared With the consent of bis  representatives, will not convince the  public that Mr. Doull possesses a very  high sense of business honor. In all  his dealings with the city the word of  Mr. Campbeil has been taken as that  of one having authority to act for the  West Kootenay Power A Light Com-  pano, and it cannot be contended tbat  Mr, Campbell did not believe that be  was acting as the duly accredited representative of the company. Yet tke  president of that company after nego-  tions bad almost reached the climax  absolutely refused to be bound by tbe  word of his representative, and on  one pretext o.r another cancels his  pledges to the city.   No fault can be  nerve to pop tbe momentous question  "Why dou't you telephone?" said tbis  flippant person.' .'Tbe idea appealed to  the timid one and he put it in practice. "Is that Miss Brown ?" ."Yes."  "Well, Miss Brbwii will you marry  me?" . "Yes !   Who's speaking?"

There  is nothing on the surface to show that  Mr. Campbell does not now regard the  concessions made by tbe, city all tbat  could be reasonably expected ; so that  the conduct of President Doull Is left  open to the very worst:construction  |hat can be placed upon It. Tbe latter  may flatter himself that he bas done  something very shrewd, but tbe public will interpret verjr differently his  open refusal to he bound by the pledge  of hi* representative....

" It bas been   proposed   tbat a vote  should be taken as to whether the city  disease, nor is Lit health���much nearer: shall continue to be.a customer of tbe  the former-tban  the latter.

In_ the present temper of_the  people it is not difficult to foretell - tbe  "Hooligan's 'Troubles,'* which Manager Arthur J. Aylesworth brings to  the Opera House on Monday, is said to  make no pretensions to -be other., than  a farce of the most furclal nature. It  has one advantage over other comedies  In that it is mirth-compelling from be*  service, should suffer some; inconvenience. Last month the city paid tbe  company $1,300,. and this is about tbe  average cost tothe city every.month.  About the only great inconvenience  would be the stoppage of the street car  serviee. This would be only temporary, and the public would not complain when a vital principle is involved.  Hon. R. F. Green, Commissioner of  Lands and Works, is now making a  tour of his own riding and will reach  Nelson early, next' week.     Since Mr.  Green accepted office in the McBride  ginning to   end and more, diverting1 Government be bas made it his duty  than many owing to the almost endless complications ��� in which "Hooligan" flh'ds   himself.

Wherever he visited he noted the successful administration of the a.  algqa of prosperity, and grand pros* &iw of the Chief Commissioner's of-  pects for the future.   .   .    - tice.    A designing man could make  representations to the Commissioner,  which, if acted upon, might cause  I grave injustice, as bas often been the  case in British Columbia. But when  It is known that the Cabinet Minister  will not act upon the uncorroborated  statement of anyone man, but will  seek the advice of the many, the door  closes on the man who would manipulate the department to gain his own  selfish ends. By pursuing the policy  of making personal investigations into  the wants ot the people generally, and  not depen ling wholly on the opinion  ion of one, the Lands and Works department under its present chief, has  won the proud distinction of being  conducted in a more efficient manner  than at any time since British Columbia became one of the Provinces of the  Dominion' The fact that the bitterest  opponents of the Government can find  nothing to criticize in the Government  at the present time is perhaps the best  testimony of tbe.efficiency of eve ry de-.  partment administered by Hon. B.  McBride aud bis ministers'.  FKOM THE  STRAY POETr.  Things that Furnish   Muse*  with Inspiration.  The praise bestowed upon Harold  Nelson for his acting in "Franceses  Da Biminl was well deserved. The  play itself ls one tbat calls for the best  efforts of an actor; it is dramatized  from Dante's story, the arrangement  being the one used by the late Lawrence Barrett. Mr. Nelson takes the  part of "Lanclotto," the cripple, a role  though widely different from any of  the classic parts in which he has beeu  seen here, demands the same inspiration and fire. Being, a cripple, he is  sensitive, and shrinks from exhibiting  his deformity before the woman who  has heen .chosen' for his wife. The  maiden falls in love with "Paoil,'' the  handsome brother who haa been Bent  to'bring ber to Rimini, and is horrified  wben.she discovers tbat-hie Hmot<to  he "her "fiuaband." She seeks revenge  for the deception that has been,- practiced upon her, the result being a domestic tragedy. The part of the court  fool, "Pepe," is taken by Clifford Lane  Bruce, and is a clever interpretation in  every respect. Miss Scott bas a splendid part in "Francesca," ar.d is seen  to great advantage. Miss Scott is improving all the time. Miss Patterson  was very good as the maid, and tbe  acting of Messrs. Blake, McKenna and  Desmond was all tbat could be desired. The elaborate scenery added  S!*_';Jy_*'0_the general success ofthe  "production.  JUST A WORD OF CAUTION.

IN these days of strenuous paret.t-  ' age, it may not be ��xalss t�� sug-  ���geat mildly that there may be. ln  "the constitution of e family, such  a thing sua too much parent. Time was  wh��n being & parent was incidental t��  other business In life.- Our grandfather* brougaht up children, a dozen at ft  time, with 0. careless familiarity that  takes aivay the modern breath. Each  of the dozen was disciplined and duly  chastened. They were whipped when  they told lies, and occasionally when  Uley did l��ot. They laarncd to read at  (our; were put to work at Ave, as *  matter of course; and developed, ln due  time, the -tuff that men are mad* of.  There waa never any particular fuss  about lt. Th* larger the family, the  more whippings It took. But there  were Always enough to go around, und  no one the -worse for It. The adver-  Ueement, "Boy missing. Run away  from home," vai not an uncommon  feature of the weekly newspaper. But  of the remnant who had the courage to  stay at home and grow up. It may be  aaid that -they made admirable citizens. They had. tihe rare privilege of  passing their childhood and youth ln  the presence of men _nd women who  had other and more important business  ln life than that of being parent to off-  ���pringv They grew up wlch a chastened  sense of their own unimportance in .  the scheme of being,-and a philosophic  expectation of taking the bard knocks  of life as they came.  We have changed all Chat. We have  listened to the voice of Froebel, "Let us  play with our children;" and to the  educational moralist, "A father ehould  be his. boy's best friend;" and to our  most famous and most unpractical  poet, "The child, Is father to the man:"  and the whole -business of child-raising  Is turned other end to. We no longer"  raise them by the dozen. One or two  at a time Is aa muoh as we dare venture, and very cautiously art thait. We  study the development and take notes  on the bumps, phrenological; the other  kind the mod��rn child ds never allowed  to ihave. "We agonize over our relation  to his moral arroTVtih.Hand drop tentative; trembling seeds Into the ground  of his being, end exchange specimens  If .anything comes of lt. The result,  as a. ���*hlole,.le not, it must be admitted,  altogether unpleaslng. There ls something-, aibout the welliborn, well-bred,"  wholesome child of to-day that make*  glad the eye-and the heart. But the  poor, parent! We .protest tfliat he has.  aever had a chance In life. Ten to one  lile own parents belonged to the did  school, and disciplined him' within an  lntfh of life. And now his children belong to the new. He ls ground between the upper and the nether stone.  Dnly In scattered, precious momenta  does he .dare call himself his own. Lat��  in -the evening, perhaps, when the all-  Important child has been adequately  played with and encouraged and developed and put to bed on his hygienle  Mllow, there comes a moment when,  the exhausted parent may sit down be- -  fore the Are and draw a comfortable,  grown-up breath, and gather strength  ���B_l wisdom for the morrow.
