Of cuur-iO their desire is  to have a. chance lo feed them  lor the bee! rnarlcel.  r  France 1ms a new jjnn for  coast del'eiiees, anel oue hundred  will be sul'licicnt to keep off all  invadiu.ic Heels.

Last November was the first  mouth   .since   lSSfi   in   which   no  a  case ol' lynching was reported in  the    United    Slates.      It seems  very   curioii.-.    Unit    Americans.  i i *  cannot undorstand why Canadians have'a strong rnpugnauce  to annexation.  The people of tho United  States are still trying to subdue  tho Filipinos, and are learning  that the ������white V.an's burden"  is not a light one". A good deal  depends, of course, on Ihe sort  of burden the while man makes  , l'or himself.  No Ikie! The people of Canada do not elect the members of  Parliament, ihcy, only think they  -do.t Tt is the judges who say  who shall sil, in the House of  Coi",  ions.  The town of Frank, is,, now  agitating for a road into the  Flathead from that place and a  public meeting was held last  week lo discuss ways and means  of furthering the scheme. Frank  is thoroughly alive lb its interests, and iii this respect shows a  worthy example to larger places  with probably stronger claim for  'the Flathead road.  Mr. Joseph' E. Wing,,, onevof  the American visitors ' to the  GJuelph.Stock Show, publishing  the impressions made oil hi in by  the incidents ot his sojourn ou  this side, says -'it is easily the  most, useful and instr.uctive stock  show" he has ever seen. r It  needs very few changes to make  it perfect hi estimation, and  these could be easily and cheaply secured.
