"A number of cases which  lave been bi ought to my attention  of late indicate! that there is danger  or' tliiB enviable reputation being lost  by the indiiference, and soineliii.i-.  iiicivility, of some employees. One of  the most frequent complaints is die  difliculty in obtaining information  wilh regard lo delayed trains. This,  of course, chiefly applies to ageiiio  ind opera tors, but lhe fact that  complaint is made on this score does  not establish lhal tlie agent or opei-  itor is always lo blame. Sometimes  it is the indiil'erence' uf a train dispatcher in replying to the inquiry of  an operator.  1A long lecture on this subject  ought not to be necessary. Business  courtesy is u most valuable cipi'pmciit  for any man who has dealing.-, with  the public; in fact, it, is an absoluta  essential. -An employee of ,i railway  company should never allow the idea  that people cannot travel or ship their  freight by,any other railway, to have,  the least weight in his mind in dealing  with the patrons of the road. A very-  large' proportion of-this- company's  business depends entirely on the good  will of the people, and all coucerneidt  officers., as well as employees, must  co-operalegto estahlisli and maintain  Lh.it reputation for P.-nisitni politene.-s  which was of so much uapib to' the C.  P.R. iu the lirst years'ol' its existence,  aud must understand tliat incivility  is an unpaidoinible offence and when  ovei-deterted.wiH be" followed'Oy summary punishment.

Of equal interesi to young Conservatives and young Liberals in the west
was the Hon. -George E. Foster's address on Tuesday last to the Junior
Conservatives of Toronto. Speaking
of the dignity of politics he deplored
the patronage system, and wished thai
both parlies in this country would
agree to put thepublic service on the
one basis of merit.
Another thing he said "we don't
want in this country, although 1 am
afraid we will have him for some time
longer,' the devil of corruption. It is
abroad everywhere, in our local legislature, in our Dominion house, in ihe
Grit party, in the Conservative party,
and if there is one thing more than
another that takes hope away from
me it is when 1 talk to men and they
ear, '"You can't get elected in such a
county unless you have lots of money
to buy votes." He appealed to the
young" men especially to raise up the
standard against the feeling growing
'"in the Dominion, that you" must have
money to fight an election  with.
It is a very singular thing that we
hear so much.talk of purity from politicians who are 0111 of office, but when
thev succeed in getting a cinch on
the" public purse they are dumb. Politicians on both sides are minted. Grit,
and       Torv bosses     alike     have
done       things      for which the
rank anil file ot the party
blushed. The men who are in office at
Ottawa today are doing the ��� very
things "at'which when in opposition
they**held np thir hands' in indignant
horror. . The good sense of the coun-
trv -will stand this sort of thing up to
a "certain point.but sooner or later the
corruptionists will be swept from
office, not, let us hope, next time to
make room for another combination
of corruptionists.but to be replaced by
an entirely new set of men who shall
be the choice of the Young Men of
Canada. Mr. Foster's appeal to the
young men is an eminently fit one. lt
is the political youth of this country
who can show thai elections can be
run���and won��� without money. The
patriot*-who requires to be paid for
his campaign oratory at so much a
���y-arn^ho"urd~~b"e"'-turiied~ciowiY. There-
is suflicient wholesome sentiment in
the ranks of the young men of Canada, particularly Western Canada, to
elect honest members o* parliament
if that sentiment is only well organized. There is enough latent oratorical
ability among young men 10 render
unanecessary the work of the paid
stump speaker of the old school. A
time will come when the organizgd
youth and hope and honesty of this
land will control the fate of governments and we believe that time is not
very far distant.
According    to the   American    Land
nd Titlo Register, a journal devoted
o municipal questions, the advent of
women Into the affairs of municipali-
ies has been accompanied by a most
cmarkable bucccss.   In more than 30
cities of this continent tho women or-
anlzoil  to  eradicate    somo    existing
municipal evil or to    introduco    somo
groat and necessary reform, and there
Is no record of their failure    in    nny I
nstance.    The  federation  of  women's
luhs has recommended    to Its    associate  societies   that  they   make   their
Ities.    towns     and      villages     more
ightly, even giving minute directions
for such    an    Improvement,  "and  all

Inn MacLaron, Rev. John Watson,
lecturing In London on Friday last,
described the typical American as
being: "Tall, sinewy, nervous, eager,
self confident and bright, with enormous Intellectual possibilities." He
added: "The New York man is the
money maker ami the Boston man is
the book worm. l'hiladelphia is a
city of old families where each man
knew his neighbor's grandfather.
Chicago is tho city ot hurry, in a
sense, a coarse city, but one where tho
navvy rises to own splendid art collections." 	
Nelson Miner: The Peace rive

-Much has been said lately regard-
ins ihe useless ami extravagant system of education in vogu* throughout
the greater part of Canada. Boys and
girls are trained by ton thousands to occupy positions in life that
will never come within their crasp,
and bv their very attainments are- being fcjrced to leave the country ami
seek their fortunes elsewhere. Canada is essentially an agricultural country and one woultl look for ai least
an elementary course in agriculture-
in our public schools, giving the youth
of the country an inclination'towards
the 'development of the countless
riches of the soil: but instead of such
a policy we find days and months
���wasted "in the indiscriminate study of
algebra and mathematics and - the
dead languages. We aro turning out
Fchool masters and doctors for the
-Western United States and are robbing our own country of its bone and
sinew."���Ex-President Wilkie. _'. the
Canadian Banker's Association.
The most curious thing about the
position of affairs today is the way
in which the different powers are
grouped on different questions*. It
may be that this will prove to our advantage in the end.    ,-,
China���Great Britain. Germany,
Italy. Japan vs. France, Russia.
Syria���Germany vs. France, Russia.
Egypt���Great Britain, Italy, Germany vs. France, Russia.
South Africa���Great Britain. Germany vs. France.
In looking over the list is will he
seen (1st) that France and Russia are
never in hostility (2nd) that they are
generally opposed to Germany. It will
almost seem as If Germany was ln
greater danger than England.

Modern Greek -peasants exchange s.
Sold and silver wedding ring, and they
drink wiu* from the inmo cap! Bat tho
regular-ritual of the Greek church ordains that __1 ��ma botrcthal precedes the
actual njurriage, iu whioh aro used gold
and -ilver wedding rings blessed by
tho priest, the gold ring being given to
the man, the silver ring to ths woman.
The form of tho espousal is then repeated, and tho rings are placed on the right
hands and then exchanged that no inferiority nuiybo betokened by tho worn-
Sn wearing the silver ring and also to
indicate a common ownership of property.
An Armenian mother usually chooses
her daughter's husband. Aftor all business preliminaries are settled between
the families the bridegroom's mother,
accompanied by a priest and two matrons, visits'tho bride and gives her a
ring in token of espousal, nud with this
ring ths couple aro ultimately married.
Ainoug tho fUliing communities very
a__it.ii- aud elaborate rings nro used,
and they descend as heirlooms from
generation to generation.
In Japanese marriagos arrangod between Tery young peoplo tho girl receives a ring in evidence that the uuion
is binding. In Malabar an old nntivo
custom seats both bride and bridegroom
on a dais, aud a relative washes the
feet of the bridegroom with milk and
puts a silver* riug on thc great toe of .the
right foot. He theu hands a gold ring
to his kinsman, nnd a necklace and
chaplet of flowers aro put on the bride's
neck and head.���London Mail

The United Stales hael not long sup-
pre.-scd tlio slave trade. There woro plenty
si ill of lowland planters, with money In
both pockets, ready to buy whatever of
''black Ivory" olher men would fetch in.
I.afitte, the "Louisiana pirate, kopt up tho
business of such fetching in. Ills haunts
were no great ways from tlio Bowie habitat. Moreover, young Jainos was in tho
way of coming upon the pirato whenover
the business of board rafting took him to
"N'cw Orleans. Ha was too shrowdly American not to grudge such fair profits to a
pack of foreigners. In company with his
brother, Rezin Bowio, Jr., and two others
of liko ndvou-iirous mineis ha undertook
to get a fair sharing ln it.
Money was" needed to begin. Bowio sold
his land to got it. Then lho four entered
into treaty with Lafitte. IIo sold thorn
sound and likely blacks oil his slavoships
nt lho rnlo of 511 a pound. That mado the
average prico something like $1-10 the
head. In the open market the blacks
would fetch from 5500 to?l,C00 each. But
there was another and a better chance of
gain, which tho trading crow woro quick
to seize upon. Under the laws then standing all Africans brought in in violation of
the statute were confiscated aud sold out
of hand, ono half the prico going to tho
authorities, tho other to tho informer,
Bowio nud his comrades mado a practice
of informing upon themselves; then when
the slaves wero soi/.od and sold they bid
them in, pocketed half tho monoy they
paid and,found themselves freo to offer
their purchases wheresoever they chose,
for tho blacks wero now lawfully within
United States boundaries nnel acoiiimoclity

Tho profit was enormous���nobody ever

ings. Altogether the company realized a
profit of some $05,600 within 11 couplo ot
years." But the business involved such
mummery and flummery of false names,
pretended disguises and pretended seizures
that the Bowies pretty soon tired of it.
They dissolved it, and at least set about
spending as strenuously as they had gono
about making.���Martha McCulloch-Wll-

Saint Norah and the 1'otato.
St Xoruh was a poor girl, nays the
London IJunoh, who prayed St. Patrick
for a pood gift that would make her not
proud bur, useful, and St. Patrick, out
of his own head, taught her how to hoil
a potato. Asael thing aud to be lamented, that tho secret has como down to so
few! Since tho highest intellectual and
physical life is depe.ndent upon diet���
since the cook makes, whilo tho physician only mends���should not she. who
prepare., our pies bo as carefully trained
as ho who makes our pills?
Certainly whatever may bo tho
knowledge or the ignorance of the s'crv-
ant in tho kitchen, the mlstrcs of the
house, be she young or olel, ought to be
ablo, like St. Patrick in tho fable, out of
her own instructed heuel to teach Norah
how to boll a potato or broil a steak so
that they may yield their utmost of relish nnd nutriment.
Until she can do that, no woman is
qualified to preside over a household,
and since few reach adult lifo without
being called to that position in tho
household of husband, father or brother, the legend of St. Norah has a wido
8iKnificance.���Youth's Companion.

of the mysteries of nature!. Recently a
