NUMBER 20  JUVENILE  CRIMINALS  George Johnson's Interesting  Figures.  A wealth of valuable information was  compressed in a paper written  by Mr.  George Johnson,   retiring  Dominion  statistican, on juvenile crime.     Tbe  paper was read before a body of Methodist ministers in this city and gave  the reverned gentlemen and all others  interested   in the   welfare of society  something to think about.   While Mr.  N. Johnson found that the   figures  for  1904 showed a diminution, the calculation being made on percentages based  on an approximate estimate of population, there is every reason for serious  consideration ofthe causes of youthful  depravity.     Like all statisticans Mr.  Johnson divided and sub-divided his  subject and gave   much information  that was more or less startling in character.   While youthful offenders under  sixteen years of age seemed  to have  had a "go" at all kinds of crime the  predominant tendency was to larceny  by far the greater number of charges  being for that offence. .  Just why there should be so much  youthful thieving in a country   like  Canada,  with   no   densely populated  centers, aud consequently no squalor  and no slums is hard to determine.   It  is a serious question and calls for the  must thoughtful consideration of the  clergy, the teaching profession and all  others who assist in the moulding of  character.   Mr. Johnson quoted figures  covering several years and dwelling on  1904 took evident pleasure in pointing  to a decrease in juvenile eriminalty.  He asks for tbe reason and points out  that'it could not have been leniency  ou the "part of judges and juries as the  peffcetitage of convictions was  68.21,  quite equal to any previous year.   The  essayist arrived at the conclusion that  "the decrease was due to an aroused  public conscience, to the efforts made  to instil into the youthful mind the  value   of   character, to   the   greater  watchfulness of parents   and in  the  greater insistence by the pulpit of the  fact that amongst all the changes of  modern life, all the severing influences  of socie y and business the* ten commandments are still in force."  "H=^Mr.-Johnson's-viewsHmay-l.e=strictly-  accurate but it seems to the Citizen  that back of   all the preaching  and  teaching stands the home, and the imperfection of parental example and restraint has more to do with juvenile  precocity in evil than any other factor.  Probably to properly diagnose the cause  for criminal tendencies each case would  have to be treated separately and  the  home life and environment given minute investigation.    It is a disgrace to  the great province of Ontario with its  vaunted school system, thousands of  churches, and comfortable homes that  it furnishes more than fifty per cent, of  the youthful criminals of the Dominion.   If the army of recruits for  the  filling of penitentiaries in. the future is  to come from boys and girls who start  their career of sin early in life there is  abundant, need for  a change in   the  point of emphasis inthe teachings in  churches   and  Snnday   schools,  and  such conditions, go to justify the demand made in some quarters for religious instruction in  public.schools.  Wnat is needed is apparently less stress  on.   purely  doctrinal   and  dogmatic  theories and a thorough   drilling of  children along ethical lines. ;.. As Mr.  Johnson   well says, they  should   be  taught that the ten commandments  are still in force.   The duty of respecting each other's right in  property, cannot be too strongly impressed.    The  business ethics of to-day are somewhat  inclined to run ih the direction of get  all you can and do the other fellow-  first and  that tendency but increases  the responsibility of those entrusted  with the training of the young.  The Citizen would suggest that iu  Ottawa one of the most glaring defects  in tiie home life is the presence on the  streets at night of boys and girls who  should be at home under parental influence. Young girls are altogether too  uunterous on the streets for their owi>  or the city's good. This is a case where  the police have.to be very cautious  about interfering and there is no doubt  that the blame rests entirely with the  parents. Fathers and mothers guilty  of laxity in the period when character  is forming are entitled to but little  sympathy should their children prove  a disappointment later in life.���Ottawa  Citizen.  the Ministers  at hedley  Speeches by Messrs.

Mr. Green had many  opportunities of. pre-enting the policy  of their Government to the people,  but at no place did they go into this j  matter so exhaustiviey as they did at  the meeting at Hedley.

Now   we  Hon. J. H. Turner Delivers a  Patriotic Speech.  A late copy of the Navy League  Journal, give3 special attention to the  Nelson ceutenary celebration, in London. In a long list of the tributes on  Nelson column Trafalgar Day mention  is made of an "immense autumn-tinted  maple leaf bearing an anchor of lichens  and the emblems rose, shamrock and  thistle. "To the memory of Nelson,  from the Victoria-Esquimalt branch of  the Navy League."'     ,   .;     -  The Navy League banquent on the  evening of Trafalgar ;Day.was held at  the Criterion restaurant, presided oyer  by the Earl of Ranfiirly, G. C. M. Q.  J. H. Turner, agent-geueral for British Columbia, is reported at the banquet as follows :   My Lord, Your Excellency, ladies and gentlemen, in commemorating, as we are doing to-night,  the memory of tne greatest naval hero  the world has ever known, it struck'  me that   the   toast   "The   Land   We  Love" is eminently appropriate.    It  agrees with the sentiment of his life.  He showed by all: his life and actions  that he was an intent lover of his own  land.    I feel it a great honor to-night  to be associated with  my brother colonials in replying to  this toast, but at  this late hour I am sure that.all will  appreciate the fact that brevity is eloquence.     I must, however, in my position as the representative of my country, sa   that the Navy League of Victoria-Esquimalt���indeed, all the people  in British Columbia--will feel highly  *gratified=thaT"they^l^  upon to take part in this  memorable  commemoration., because all the people  of British Columbia are lovers of home.  The old land  is still home to tbem.  (Hear, hear.)    But ray Lord, the sentiment of the people iu the colonies in  this respect is stronger and deeper, I  believe,  than  the   sentiment   of  the  people of the Old Country.   The people  of the colonies aspire to the idea that  the whole of Britain, not the mother  island alone,  but Canada,  Australia,  the Cape, and all the other colonies,  are the Empire,  tliat they  form one  country, and  that country is the land  they love.   (Hear,  hear.)     It is true  tliat the ocean  rolls between, but we  must remember that the ocean  does  uot  divide.      The  oceau   offers   the  cheapest and easiest opportunities for  inter-communication.    The ocean also  enables a greater interchange of visits  between the people of all the component parts off-the Empire, und the more  of these visits  there are the better it  will be for all.   (Cheers.*)- Thesf.same  colonies to-day are. meeting, as we are  meeting, to commemorate our greatest  hero;   they  will   commemoaate  our  great Admiral  all round   the   world.  Though he is long dead, his  memorj*,  his self-sacrifice,, his   heroic  actions  will always live as an example to the  British raceand to the world. (Cheers.)  I thank you for the.cordial manner in  which this truly British toast has been  received.  those present what the Government  had done in the past and what it pro- |  posed to do in the future. He explained that when his Government  took hold of the affairs of the Province  the financial situation was indeed serious. A month or so later an audit  showed   him  that the Province was  W.  K.  Esling   lias   puflfehased   the  Rossland  Miner, and already that paper shows unmistakable signs of respectability.  facing insolvency. They were indebted $12,000,000 and had been told by  the bank that tlie limit had been about  reached. For this reason the elections  had to be brought on a month earlier.  He had been charged with trying to  take advantage of his opponents in doing so, but the real reason was the.  riaiicial condition. Immediately on  being returned to power he called the  the Legislature together to di vise ways  and means. His Government first arranged a loan to meet this over-draft,  and a considerable portion of that loan  has been paid off. In addition to this temporary relief they had  to provide for the future. To do so  means must be provided to secure more  revenue. This meant increased taxes,  and nothing could be more unpopular  than ; iucreased taxation. To -do so  they had started with those most able  to bear the burdens.  They had  been   accused   of  being  owned by railways, but the Premier  pointed out  that the  railways   were  forced to pay 500 per cent, more taxes.  This in the face of the fact that at the  first session the railways made a strong  lobby and threatened to curtail operations, but they had been made to pay  five,times more taxes, and instead of  curtailing he saw them coming to blows  with each other at Midway the other  dav in their effort to get into Hedley.  They had increased taxes on   the lum-  industry and to-day it was as flourishing  as it had ever been before.     They had  run the t_xon=wild*ilahdsa^vay"up1and"  the large land holders were dividing  up the land.    British Columbia securities  had risen and bankers were no I  longer nervous as shown by views expressed  by  a   prominent   banker  in  Montreal.   Unlimited capital was how  seeking investment iu the Province.  This was not a boom but a return of  confidence.  The Premier dealt with the Coast-  Kootenay road at length. While many  corporations had been given charters  aud subsidies to build it remained with  the Great Northern to make the first  substantial advance. Now it looked as  if two railways were assured, with a  third a probability. Since Mr. Sbat-  ford had gone into the House he had  never ceased, day in and day out, for  this railway. He wanted a through  line aud due safeguards us to rates.  "Iu fact," said the speaker, "I sometimes used to get tired of Shatford and  tile Coast-Kootenay." The building  of the Fraser River bridge and the discovery of a pass in the Hope Mountains had paved the way, and Mr.  Shatford's intimacy with the Great  Northern .officials aud the confidence  which ho seemed to have infused into  them had finally induced them to do  without a dollar of money what others  could not be prevailed upon to do with  subsidies. Mr. Shatford had in a  measure discovered the Similkameen  to outsiders. They had heard of it,  but he had brought it home to them.  It is said that two lawyers would live  comfortably where one would starve,  and now that the Great Northern was  coming the C. P. R. would soon be  know, wnat British Columbia has.  We know more* of its vast mineral  wealth ; more of its timber ; more of  its agricultural atid fruit-growing.possibilities, and more of its climate.  From what he had seen iji that district, it was ho; vain prediction that  ���ten years hence would see 30,000 people in that valley, o  The school question was next taken  up. To-day British Columbia's school  system was second to none in Canada,  and superior to that of many other  provinces. Here weyhad not been  limited by custom or rules, and never  hesitated to take pointers from eastern  provinces or states to the south. Had  the old system been continued it was  only a matter of two or three years  until every dollar of taxation levied  ~    .Aa  would be needed tr  maintain school  expenditures. In remodelling they  followed the principles in vogue in the  east, only had not thrown one-fourth  of the burden of maintenance on  the people that tlie eastern  systems entailed. The advantages of  the change were pointed out, not the  least important of which was that it  wasfdoirig business in a business way  to appeal to the people abroad.  Hon. R. F. Green said he would  carry away different impressions of the  Similkameen. He had ^gone tliat afternoon about a mile towards heaven  and up into the clouds to see hot only |  the banner mine of the province but of  the world and the opportunity to do  so had been to him a great pleasure.  After a funny story at the Premier's  expense, lie said that when he took  over the lands and works department  he was made aware that there was an  empty treasury. It was up to. the  Government not only to demonstrate  that the Province had resources, but  the^bii8ihess���m^  upbuilding of the province, and drastic measures to replete were necessary.  A weaki r Government would have  been afraid to do tbis. Expenditures  were cut in all directions and  no department felt it more than  his own. ��� By getting the greatest possible service for the money he  was able to keep the roads up in as  good condition as they were before.  Mr. Shatford had told them the  truth that the Similkameen had got  tlie greatest share of its appropriations  from his department, and from what  he had seen it was evident that it had  been fully justilied, for it was destined  in the near future to become one of tlie  greatest revenue producing ridings in  the province.  When the Government increased  taxes aud reduced expenditure they  did it because they had faith in the  good sense and judgment of tlie people.  The introduction of party lines had  a steadying effect. The investing public had been frightened away by meddlesome legislation. The Government  were now responsible not only to the  people but to the party, for the party  must now shoulder the odium of all  bad legislation that goes on the statute  books. The timber regulations were  gone into in detail, and to sum up, the  effect will be f> give the Province the  full value of their timber and tlie  license-holder a more stable interest in  his holdings. .  He paid a warm tribute to the worth  of Mr. Shatford, who, he said, was to  be found in his place every day of the  session,  best done iivthe caucuses and commit-  j tees, and it was tiiere that Mr. Shat  {ford had donehis work in a way that]  no other representative had done.   To  the Premier also he paid a very high  tribute, and expressed his. pleasure in J  following him.    A "halo shoes" man,  he had served his native province in a  way to make them all proud of him.  While as leader of the Government he  had restored prosperity and confidence,  it was as leader of the Opposition he  had done his best work.  EVENTS AND  GOSSIP  Things Talked of During the  Week in Nelson.  THE MINISTERS  ARE PLEASED  With their Recent Visit to the  Interior.  Hon. Mr. McBride and Hon. R. F.  Green returned to the coast last Monday after their visit to the interior.   To  a Vancouver News-Advertiser reporter  they spoke highly of their reception  whereyer they visited, and Mr.  McBride had the following to wiy concerning their visit to Nelson : "I might  say tliat  the part we  played in the recent fusion of the Nelson Conservative  Association and the CohservativeUnion  was at tlie   request of  both organizations.   Some  despatches, which appeared   ii. ci rtain Coast papers, were  more than misleading.   One, in which  it   was   particularly  stated   that   Mr.  Greet!   and   myself threatened   that  means would be taken to deprive Mr.  Houston of his seat in the Legislature  in the near future, was not only- false  but   malicious.     Many people on the  outside have heard that the party in  Nelson' is brok'eii';-the' contrary prevails, the feeling among tlie members  being   excellent.   Of course,   in  any  association, Liberal or   Conservative,  in  matters of detail there may be a  difference of opinion, but tiiere was  nothing in Nelson or any of the ridings visited which would indicate anything but harmony.   Mr. R..S. Lennie,  who might be called the fusion President of Nelson's Conservative Club,  is one of the most promising men of  British Columbia, and Liberals as well  as Conservatives are glad to see him in  the position he has recently attained."  There was a good attendance at the  Baptist Church concert Wednesday  even ing, and the;_.evgn_j__j___a_4M_9ttJJ_tl_  have been an artistic and financial success. Miss Crowley was, of course,  the great attraction, and her two solos,  "Tell Her I Love Her. So" and  "Good-Bye," were applauded to the  echo. Miss Crowley has .firmly established herself in the'hearts of the  music-loving citizens of Nelson. Mr.  Bodmer added greatly to the enjoyment of tlie evening's entertainment in  his piano solos and accompaniments,  and Mrs. Shanks, E. Grizello and F.  D. Arundel were heartily encored.  Tbe suspension of the Tribune has  given rise to a great deal of talk this  week.   One curious thing in tbis connection is that the paper was dead several days before its absence was noticed.  This shows that it did not cut much of  a swath iu Nelson.   Tiie sheriff, t n old  newspaper mairhimself, has taken possession for the wages of the employees,  and Charlie Waterman is holdingdown  the editorial chair on   behalf of  the  landlord.    The type-setting machine  was reported to have been sold  to a  Victoria man, buta well-known citizen  announces that  he   has secured  the  linotype    machine,    will, buy    the  plant, and will shortly revive the paper under another name.   With this  end in view he is now  engaging a  competent business staff.   There are  daik things hinted at in  connection  with the Tribune, but The Economist  is in no way interested in either the  stories or the threats .that are being  made by certain interested individuals.  Neither is this paper interested in the  future of that paper.    What most concerns th s great family weekly at the  present moment is its determination to  abandon the weekly field ori; April 2nd,  on which date The Economist will  appear as an eveniug paper.    The advertising rates will  not be greatly increased from the rate now charged in  the weekly paper* but the public can  rest assured that The Economist will  j'l'e'ver miss an issue, it wili be s'eif-su p -  porting from the start; and there* will  be no $500 a month deficit.     It will  contain more reading matter; than has  ever appeared in a daily paper in the  interior, and one month from its first  issue it will appear as an 8-page paper.  In view of the fact that about one hundred thousand dollars have been squandered in newspaper enterprises iu Nelson, the  undertaking may seem hazardous, but The Economist has no  fear.  It has friends who have remained  faithful to it since it first started, nearly  nine years ago, and it has their assurance that they will   stand by it in the  future.

We   may   write   volumes of  explanations and yet fail to reach the  vital point   in   an  agreement   which  might be arrived at by a few minutes'  heart to heart talk.   What is true of  ordinary business life is much   more  true of the business of political life, in  which the personal is- always a large  element.   It is well for this members of  any government and   the   people  to  know each  other  personally.    It  is  well for the members of any government to find out for themselves the  position of affaiis in each  disirict as  far as that is possible.   They, as a consequence, j dge intelligently respecting the recommendations of the representatives  or  of  thejofficials  of the  government, or of other persons  regarding the various matters that come  before them at various times.    They  are enabled to know the public feeling  locally in regard to each of these matters, and they are not at the mercy of  their supporters.   The members of the  McBride. ministry are, therefore, to be  commended for doing what was to a  great extent rieglected by previous administrations.   We think some of the  mistakes for   which   the  latter   were  most severely blamed arose out of not  being sufficiently in touch with  local  sentiment throughout the province."  "Jerry from Kerry," described as a  roaring musical farce comedy, comes to  the Nelson Opera House Monday and  Tuesday evenings next. It is said to  provoke much laughter, and as, the  majority of people prefer comedy to  tragedy, it wiil probably he well pat  ronized. The Calgary Hearld says  "The band of this company is one of  best ever heard in Calgary and tlie orchestral effort elicited much applause.  John Patten as Jerry was' vociferously applauded throughout the evening. The members have earned a  reputation for amusiug the public in  this section."  "The mining industry in British Columbia was never in a more promising  condition than it is to-day," remarked  a well-known mining man to The  Economist the other day. Iu support  of his contention he instanced the recent discoveries at the Ymir and other  mines, the splendid outlook for the  Reliance, and the reopening of the  Pilot Bay smelter. The last-named enterprise has particular significance to  the merchants of Nelson. There will be  several hundred men employed, and  the immediate benefits to lhe business  men of the city will bo quite as great  as if the smelter were operuted within  thc city limits.  The members of the lato Liberal-  Conservative Union met Ia��it Saturday^  evening and presented "Mr. E. C.  Wragge, who acted as secretary of that  organization, with a silver* coffee pot  and several other pieces of silverware,  as a slight recognition of his services  in connection, with the Union. The  presentation wasmade;by Dr. Rose in  a few well-chosen remark-, and Mr,  Wragge made a fitting , response.  Speeches were.' delivered by every one  present, the principal one being by Mr.  R. S. Lennie. All congratulated Mr.  Wragge on his marriage, and paid flattering tributes to his zeal in the cause  of his political party and his worth as  a citizen.  The Phoenix Pioneer has a half-  column editorial in which the merits  of the McBride Governmentare painted  in true colors, and coueludes with the  following paragraph : ." To-day Mr.  McBride has the confidence of tbe majority of the people, and many Liberals  are"fair"en"6u~gb"t6_admit~t_is. much as  Fred Simpson, of the Cranbrook  He-tald, will soon own more papers  than Willie Hearst. His latest venture  is the Lethbridge Herald, and as it  bears th<p stamp of Simpson on every  column, it is all that a newspaper  should be.  Gold   Commissioner   Renwick  has  satisfactorily adjusted the claims of the  various contestants for certain   lands  and timber between Trail and Castle-  The work of tbe session is I gar.  Several weeks ago The Economist  referring to the visit of the Premier  and Hon. Mr. Green to the Kootenay?,  commended the policy of the ministers  in keeping in touch with the people.  Several other papers in tlie Province  have complimeuted. the ministers for  tbeir wisdom in this regard, and the  Victoria Colonist in the course ofa loug  article nn the subject has the following:  "However-l'li-jwita minister may be  in finding out the views of the people  by correspondence or by meeting them  ln his office, he can never achieve the  same satisfactory results by dealing at  long range with Important subjects  affecting the material welfare of some  particular part of the province as by  personal contact with the people at  their ov\ n homes and investigating the  conditions on the spot.   We know how |  thay would like to prove the contrary.  The premier and his colleagues are to  congratulated by all, and, the better  condition of the Province generally is  one of tiie first results of lhe policy inaugurated." The reason fbr this U  that tlie McBride Government keep,  all its promises, a commendable quality  iu governments and individuals.  The Roscian Comic Opera Company  will begin a three nights engagement  at the Nelson Opera House December  10, The papers in thc towns where  this company has appeared are unanimous in pronouncing it the best musical organization that has ever visited  the west. The Calgary papers are particularly generous in thair praise, the  Hera_\of tbat city stating that "Man-  aget Cranston's aggregation is unquestionably the best comic opera company  that has ever toured Western Canada."  Acting-Mayor Gillett last night received a telegram from City Solicitor  Macdonald, at Victoria, to the effect  that a majority of the Judges of tbe  Full Court bad consented to additional  evidence in the case of Nelson vs.  West Kootenany Power Light Company. : The date for the hearing of the  appeal will be set to-day.  very difficult it is to arrive at a satis-J destination.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  Eveu the Liberals admit that the  McBride Government weut the right  ���way about restoring the credit of  tbe Province. Although this endorsation comes from an unexpected quarter, it is none the less  welcome and. convincing.  The railway policy of the McBride  Government is not so generous and  liberal as tbat of former governments ; but the railroads are being  built just the same, and the people  are not called upon to sacrifice their  heritage in order to secure the transportation facilities necessary for the  development of the Province.  The Saskatchewan elections have  been fixed for December 2nd. The  object of the delay is doubtless to  enable the "machine" to get in its  work, and if the Scott Government  goes down to defeat, it will not be  because he has failed in a liberal use  of the "metallic influence" which  has so often won elections in Canada.  England's heir to the throne,  Prince Edward of Wales, now  eleven years old, is a humorist.  King Edward asked him tbe other  day what he was studying, and the  little prince said : ''All about Per-  kin Warbeck." Asked who War-  beck was, he replied, "He pretended be was tbe son of a king, but  he wasn't; he was the son of respectable parents."  Hon. Mr. Green in the conduct  of his department has shown how  much can be done with little resources but due attention to econ  omy. The lands and works department was most effected by the  impoverished condition of the treasury when Mr. Green took charge,  yet a great deal has been accomplished, quite as much as in former  years when the money was being  extravagantly expended by the  former reckless administrations.  Hon. D. W. Higgins has reentered tbe field of journalism, and  is now chief editorial writer on the  Vancouver World. It is nearly  twenty-one year- since Mr. Higgins  was actively engaged in journalistic  work, but it is not Jikelv that he  has lost any of his power during  that time. As editor of the Victoria Colonist for over a quarter of  a century, he made that paper a  strong factor in moulding the poli  tical sentiment of his time. He  knows British Columbia like a book.  and is always in close touch with  the political situation.  Province they found the treasury  in a depleted condition. How they  met tlie situation is well told in their  speeches at Hedley, and that tbey  proceeded in Uie right way the  present satisfactory condition of affairs is the best testimony. Two  years ago the Province was without  credit and capitalists were afraid to  invest a cent ; to-day the credit of  the Province is good, and capitalists  are no longer afraid to invest their  money in British Columbia. The  disease was a desperate one and the  remedy must of necessity have been  drastic, but a permanent cure bas  been effected.  Corner Mill and Josephine Sts.  Are you Drinking my  On another page is printed a report of a recent meeting held al  Hedley, at which the Premier and  Hon. Mr. Green delivered speeches.  The addresses of both men will prove  interesting as they outline the policy of the present Government.  When the McBride Government  fcpk charge of the affairs of tbis  The Trout Lake Mining Review  pays the following tribute to the  present Government:  "The tour of Premier McBride  and Hon. R. F. Green, Chief Commissioner of Lands and��Works, is  of vast benefit to the country at  large, and has a tendency to  strengthen the hands of the government. The big spending department is the one under the charge of  Mr. Green, and it is good policy ou  his part to personally know what  is needed in the way of public im-  prove^nents. We are all human,  and sometimes like to bave work  done and money expended that is not  really necessary just because some  friends want it done.

Ah, sportsman, cruel sportsman,  You have fierced my body through.  What harm might I ask thee  Have I ever done to you,  That you came from lands far distant  Over miles of trackless foam  To slay me in the wilchvoods  Of my free New Brunswick home ?  Ah, sportsman, cruel sportsman,  You have laid my body low  In this deep secluded thicket  "\V_tere I've wandered to and fro.  My body's on the brushwood,  My head lies on a stone  'Neath the birch and tapering cedars  Of my free New Brunswick home.  When you heard me you allured me  By that low deceptive call.  Then you lay for me in ambush  To pierce me with a ball,  Your cruel aim was certain,  It tore through flesh and bone,  And my life's blood stains the brushwood  Of my free New Brunswick home.  Thy heart is far more cruel  Thau that ancient tyrant famed,  Who history tells us fiddled  . While the Roman city flamed.  .The only voice of sympathy  That answers io my moan  Is the breeze that stirs the foliage  Of my free New Brunswick home.  Now my short career is ending,  I soon will be cold in death,  _. Perhaps an hour at the farthest  I will draw my final breath.  ..... Though monarch of the forest  I am left to die alone  j. 'Neath the spruce and tapering cedars  Of my dear New Brunswick home.  When my eyes shall close forever  Where my helpless body fell  'Midst the brush and tangled wild wood  Of this deep secluded dell,  You might place this short inscription  On tliis rough and ragged stone :  "I was murdered by an alien  In my free New Brunswick home."  ���RiiUBARii Tippling.

It brought back to my heart again my  eartbl\ griefs and joys,  That meeting-place with God to which  ���w��� went _whenave_w.ere,boys.^o__  The preacher preached a sermon from  a text of old Saint Paul's,  But I didna heed his message, for instead of whitewashed walls  They were painted on or fresnoed. so  beautiful and bright,  All the windows, too, were lan_e ones,  all aglow with colored light.  Instead of a long ste vepipe, the rows  of lamps between,  It was warm and light as summer,  though no fireplace could be seen;  They haye no lone precentor to strike  up a favorite hymn,  But a choir and organ rolling forth,  now grand und loud, now dim.  The preacher lid not argue much, nor  was his teaching deep :  Some of the people listened well, the  others fell asleep.  He talked to them just half an hour.  They all went out before  He came to say good bye to them, and  shake hands at the door.  They rushed home in the trolleys, not  across the churchyard sod.;  It seemed so very different from the  ways our feet have trod;   -  But I trust they'll come to heaven, for  they use ihe same old sword  As we did to fight the devil, and they  worship the same Lord.
