THE  i '-ki^m  SUBSCRIPTION $l.tt A JrfiK;$$OT|&'  - "7,7\-'yMi  IN ADVANCE  Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME II  VANCOUVER, British Columbia^ AUG 5,   1910.  No. 13  HERE AND THERE  IS IT A FARCE?  Some time ago the lieense of the Atlantic Hotel was cancelled  because of three distinct violations of the law, and convictions for  the same. Now oue of the proprietors comes before the License  Commission and asks for another License,, on the grounds that he  was not to blame but that it was his partner who had violated the  law  It was pointed out by Com. Findley that tliey, the proprietors,  had been offered $30,000 for their business and in his opinion they  ( should accept the offer. The mayor pleaded that he had a good  'character and that he, the mayor, had ascertained from the Lieense  Victualers' Association that they had pleaded in vain with the partner of the applicant not to sell on Sundays, and in the opinion of the  mayor the license should be granted. He was supported in this by  Com. Edgett and consequently the License will be issued.  Here we have another illustration of the positive absurdity of  [the methods used in dealing with the liquor traffic. In this case  \ there was the most barefaced farce of tlie law by these men.  I According to the reported statements of the License Vituelers they  lhad made a common practice of selling liquor on Sundays and three  ^consecutive convictions were secured against them, but in spite of all  {this, a license is granted on first application.  In the name of common sense what are our laws passed for?  [Apparently by this, and other actions of the Board, the law is a  [sort of foot-ball to be used as a medium of diversion for the Lieense  [?Board, the hotel keepers and the License Vituelers Association to  \while away au hour or two at their joint monthly love-feasts.  We had looked for some definite action from the Board and were  led to believe that our hopes would not be disappointed, judging  from their actions in the earlier part of the year, but a careful  [analysis of the total results of the present Board's administration  fails to show anything startling by way of improvement. Many  licences have ben suspended or cancelled, but they seem to be like  ������he proverbial cat, to have nine lives, for almost invariably the  jicencee gets his licence again in some way or other.  Another illustration of this is furnished in the same meeting,  ie Tulk combination applied some time ago for a licence for pre-  lises on Hastings street. It was refused, for reasons, and presumably dropped. Archie Robinson, the ex-Licence Inspector, applied for a licence on Pender street and (to the scandal of the  loard, be it said) he got it. He now applies for a transfer to the  premises before applied for by the Tulks and this too is granted,  tt now transpires that Robinson and Tulk are all one and the same  irm or combination. Thus again the Commission are seemingly  ������ere tools in the hands of the Licence Vituelers. All we ask is  mt the laws be enforced impartially and the public interests pro-  :57iy protected���������this is not the case at present.  THREE DEATHS JN ONE WEEK.  The above is the tribute for .one week demanded by reckless  [rivers in Vancouver. Two deaths were caused by vehicular traffic,  Tad one by the street cars.  I)   We print in another column an article by Profpssor Odium which  a fearful arraingment of the reckless driver.  In regard to the street car accident (?) the coroner's jury retried a verdict that the death was caused by the excessive speed of  ie ear. About two.months ago the City Council passed a resolution  ailing upon the B. C. Electric Ry. to place adequate fenders on  ieir cars. The Company replied that they would equip all their  irs within one month with the "Watson Fender." This has not  fceh done. Huge freight cars are permitted to traverse our business  pre'ets in the most congested hours of the day with only a "cow-  itcher" for a fender. It is nothing short of criminal to permit the  ���������. C. Electric to continually hurl, defiance in the face of repeatedly  cpressed public opinion. The life and convenience of the public are  bthing to them, so long as they can extract from the pubile purse  revenue. We propose to continue to expose the utter neglect by  tis Company just so long as it exists aud will advocate the strongest  bssible measures being adopted, if need be, to place this impertinent  Micern in its proper place as a public servant.  HOSPITAL BYLAW.  A Bylaw to purchase land for the purpose of extending the  bneral Hospital grounds will be introduced at the next regular  feting of the Council.  l>   There has been much dissatisfaction with the management of  hospital as at present constituted.   It is claimed that diserim-  jtion occurs against the working man and that if he is admitted  is unable to pay his way he has to suffer all the indignities of  Jpauper. It has been urged by the Trades and -Labor'Council  it the City assume the management of the Hospital as a civic  3titution and thus make it a purely public institution. Unless  Is is done it is doubtful if the Bylaw will pass  "JOE MARTIN."  "Fighting Joe Martin" is very much to the fore as usual. He  Is the knack, of getting any amount of advertising! In this respect  ���������resembles-Teddy" Roosevelt and Jack Johnson.  "Joe" has been expatiating on the transparency of the public  brals m England and incidentally of the exceeding "muddv"  uracter of Canadian politics.  "Joe" will always be found ready to "hand out" a blunt opin-  on any question and especially on politics. Having received  Inewhat the worst end of the deal in Canada he decided to try  fi Imperial House and states that he is highly elated, and has  fir-   attained the height of his ambitions."  "Joe" tells us that in England politics are "clean" and "free  corporation control," but in somewhat sharp contrast to this  ogj ot our fighting hero" comes the statement of Rider Hag-  fcL.who has been compelled to abandon his candidacy for election  the same house as that in which "Joe" occupies a seat, because  lthe exhorbitant cost of an election campaign: Mr. Haggard  Ims that unless one is able to secure aid from "headquarters" it  [practically impossible for a private individual to finance his own  7'.paign.  But, then, of course, we should remember that "Joe"  Ipd that m Canada he has been able, by careful economy, to  ipe together a competaucy," this no doubt in his case obviates  ���������necessity of an appeal to "headquarters."  THE GREAT  OF IE OCTOPUS  ��������� r-^r-     ���������  NEW WESTMINSTER AND THE B. C. ELECTRIC.  John A. Lee, Mayor of New Westminster, deserves the highest  commendation, not only of his own constituents, but of all the residents of the lower mainland, for his fearless stand against the impertinent demands of the "Electric Octopus." Mayor Lee wrote the  B. C. Electric the following letter which is self-explanatory:  R. H. Sperling, Esq., ���������> \\  General Manager B. C. E. R. Co:,  Vancouver, B. C. "  Dear Sir���������I have been waiting scry patiently to see what you  are going to do in reference to the Millside, Lulu Island and J^M&|f^  line in the City of New Westminster. -1 hardly think that^yoftVan'  expect us to keep patience indefinitely in regard to thede malters, as it  is imperative that we should have the lines opened at an early date.  I do not think that you can find another city on the American continent with as poor a street car service"as New Westminster has. Not  on the line you are operating, which is being improved very, but  in the general service to the various parts of the city.  I will be glad to know what yoii purpose doing, not a general  statement, but in a definite premise, if you can possibly do so.  Very truly yours,  -    '        JOHN A. LEE, Mayor.  New Westminster, July 16, 1910.       <���������"   ,>  Iii reply to this he received a letter containing the following  clause and signed by "F. R. Glover," Assistant Manager."  "With reference to the matters referred to Mr. Sperling has  had, I believe, one interview with you,.and myself two, and at each  of these meetings you were given an assurance that as soon as we  were assured that the further development which we are carrying  on at Coquitlam Lake will be no longed opposed by Neew Westminster, we will be prepared to begin at once not only with the matters  whicii you refer to, but several others of exceedingly great importance to New Westminster. I think' I am quite safe in reiterating  this promise." -    -"        ,  Mayor Lee could scarcely believe'his eyes, so, in order tliat no  mistake should occur, he wrote#again as follows:   '  .

OF INTEREST TO#l3������  7^/Vt^fs^ffi  lis  ELECTRIC LIGHT AND TELEPHONE POLES  % A lengthy discussion was precipitated at the last meeting^ of YV^fflPl  the City Council by the presentation of a bill from the-B, C. Electrie . {^**  for $180.00, being' the charge for moving a pole on Granville street,  which pole had become a public nuisance. The bill was passed ^iS^pl  by the Board of Works, "but was challenged inCouncil byT Aldermen^r' ������^������l$t  Stevens and Maepherson, who maintained that "as the pole bad be- .+ *'&$&&  come a menace to the safety and convenience of the publie the  Company should be compelled to remove it at the sole expense of  the Company,'' and a resolution was moved accordingly, but instantly a strong support for the Company developed from the, usual  quarters, anfl the bill was ordered paid. ��������� J _ -*'* V^-'  This is simply another illustration.of how utt^-iujpwvieot the  ^majority of, the Council ���������members are to the corporation influence.

LEE, Mavor.  New Westminster, July 20, 1910.  This in turn resulted in a letter from Mr. Sperling:  His Worship Mayor Lee,-  City Hall, New Westminster.  Dear Sir,���������Referring to your letter of July 16th, Assistant Manager Glover's acknowledgement of the 18th. and your reply of the  20th, Have to say that while we are ready and anxious to'proceed  with various extensions and improvements in and around New Westminster, we feel that pending a friendly settlement of the difference  which exists between us regarding our further development at Coquitlam Lake, we would not be justified' in entering upon the very  large expenditure which these works will' entail, more, especially  as the additional power we are seeking to> develop at Coquitlam iV  necessary for the operation of the extensions and new lines you ask,  and which we are willing to construct as soon as we are assured  of the withdrawal of opposition on the part of tlie citv to the New  Coquitlam Dam. "  . 7  Inasmuch as under the terms of our agreement' with the Dominion government in the.matter, the very existence of our companv  hinges on the maintenance of the purity of the City's water supply,  the suggestion that we would do or permit anything which mijrht impair the quality of Coquitlam water, would appear absurd! Our  stake m the matter is enormous, and we could not afford to take  even the most trifling risk. This, we think, you fully appreciate, and  it such is the case, we feel that further opposition in the completion  of the work should be withdrawn, and so enable us to give effect  to our desire to proceed' with our plans-in and around1 New Westminster^ which mean so much to its future prosperity.  Yours very truly*  R. H. SPERLING^ Gen. Manager.  As intimated in the foregoing communications there is a dispute  between the City of New Westminster and the B; C. Electric, regarding the' Coquitlam Dam.. The City claim if will' endanger the  water supply if the dam is proceeded with according to present  plans. The Company, however, see an opportunity of wielding the  big stick" by refusing to make necessary extensions of its service in  the city, and expect-in this way to wear out the opposition of the  city to its other project.  Such tactics are dispicable; and' clearly show tlie depths to  which a corporation will descend to attain its ends.  The New Westminster Council have decided to send the correspondence to tlie "Directorate" id England" and if it is approved in  that quarter then it is suggested that proceedings will be taken to  cancel the Company's charter on the grounds of non-fulfilment'of its  terms.  If the citizens of New Westminster" allow'their mayor to be  beaten in this contest for lack of support thev deserve 'to be the  victims of corporation greed to the end of the chapter;'- But'we do  not think .they will, but on the contrary, will marshall to his support  and force this^overbearingyCompanV to deal fairly;.  onable that these Companies should do this work at their own costf..  There are a number of agreements extant between these Companies  and the City, but as far as we can learn, as yet, these agreements  simply serve to tie the hands of the City and give to the Companies/  "carte blanche" powers.  That these agreements are not peculiar to past. Councils was.'  demonstrated by the introduction, at the meeting referred to, of- -,  an agreement with the B. C. Telephone, whereby the city agreed noi  4o ask the Company to remove any of the poles during tike "life*? i'  of the said poles.   This was giyorously assailed by Aid. Stevens and}  1 .A'  ���������flo  '>  7^7- '*���������  W1   -ST,  Considerable anxiety is still'apparent throughout Western Vuu-  ada regarding the crop outlook.   Showers of rain recently have to  some extent lessened the acuteness ���������of it, and a more optimistic,  view is generally taken.    J '  ^        '   > . '  The Monetary Times in a leading article sums up the situation'  as follows: - ,        ���������&  "This is naturally an uneasy time in business circles, because'  the commercial welfare of the Western eountry for another year?  depends on.avbatbapf������eii8. bet ween now and September 15th.   Jtv  may be a question as between a total production of 150.000 000  bushels and one of 100.000,000 bushels, and the difference is an'important consideration.   The lines of activity which reflect most sen-  sitively the prospects have adopted a waiting attitude for some  weeks, and this hesitating position will be maintained for another  month.   The merchants, M'bolesale and retail, the railway officials  the bankers, the manufacturers, and the other elements who shape  the policy of what is known as the business world are watching.  They do not care to take an advanced attitude, even if the general  feeling is one of confidence and hope.   The time to take advantage of-  the benefits accrusing from a successful erop is approximately that  in which the best assurances of a satisfactory return are indicated.  There will then be plenty of opportunity in which to rejoice and to  plunge.  The steadying influences represented in the men"holding the"  reins of credit are sufficient to keep the situation always in check  and to supress the boomster.'' '  ���������vv V  f k ��������� h���������  '^  *������,V  MIXED FARMING.  The exclusive "wheat" production, which is characteristic of,  the Prairie section, must sooner or later give place to "mixed farm--t  ing." This subject is being kept constantly before the farmers by  the "Nor'west Farmer" in many able articles on the advantages of  mixed farming. Its chief advantage being, that in case of o crop  failure the farmer still has his stock and dairy products to fall back  on. It will also lead to more scientific cultivation, which in turn  must result in increased production. All this will tend to relieve the  awful tension placed upon the.farmer as he watches his wheat,  constantly fearing drought, frost, or heat winds, which Mould completely wipe out his year's work. Then, again, the vast areas for  stock raising are rapidly becoming settled up and the consequence  is that there is a growing.demand for the "stall fed" beef. This  department.of Western farming will undoubtedly become a very  profitable and popular-one, and must of necessity work quite a  revolution in the methods of the Western farmer.  *   *   *   ���������  CHILD LABOR.       ,  A special committee of the British Government has just completed an exhaustive investigation of the practice of "street trading"  by children, and in its report urges that all such trading by-children  be absolutely prohibited by law.  The committee found that the life of a child "street trader"  was of such a character that it inevitably led to immorality and  crime. In-the. case of boys it developed gambling and vagrancy. In  the case of girls it invariably led to a life of immorality and shame.  That England is awakening to the grave responsibility which  rests upon her ind ealing with the social conditions of her great  centers is indeed a good sign. " 7  In British Columbia we also have our "child labor" problem.  In many of the coal mining towns of the interior young children  are allowed to work underground.. Our laws actually permit the  use of children in mines where the coal seam is too small to be  worked by adults. Just think for a moment of a lad 12 or 13 vears  of age working down in the bowels of the earth, in a narrow" contracted space, digging out coal, and this with the specific permission  of our Jaws.   The situation is diabolical.  The whole practice of child labor is a violation of the laws of  nature and the penalty will have to be paid in the form of a weakened and deteriorated race. But the cold, selfish spirit of commercialism demands the sacrifice of these innocent young lives to swell the  "Dividends," and this is the basis of all commercial morality. ��������� ~-r������  4     ~"MTI^������H    m^gggfmfm<  m        P������f������������IIW  "~-~    THE WESTERN CAU* YANCOUVBR.

DEATH  SPEEDERS.  To see_ many of the automobiles  rushing through the streets of Vancouver, as too often they do, is to wonder what the "lightning chauffeurs"  have in mind. How few acidents  happen is one of the marvels of the  age. 7   .������������������.   .'���������':-. .������������������..-.7  There is real pleasure: in. watching  an automobile gliding about the  steeets, carying people who are not  speed mad. Personally I am an admirer of this new up-tc-date vehicle,  and so profound is , my admiration,  that frequently I fund myself standing  watching these splendid and most  commodious machine's transporting  their living freight, in 'a manner so  charming and attractive as to set me  into a study of my purse and the cost  of purchasing one of these carriages.  But just then some thoughtless person, or some light-headed fool comes  along on a mad rush, as if on a chase  from impending danger. Then my  blood boils and 1 would like to use  "the club" on the driver. At times  I do take down the number for the  purpose of giving information, but so  far I have always relented, and let  the trespasser go free.  To my mind the man who rushes  through a thoroughfare at a mad  rate, as often happens, has in him the  thoughtless spirit and carelessness of  the brute who would laugh at maiming or killing a human being, were he  sure that punishment would not reach  him.  An automobile speeder on a city  street, or a driver of any other vehicle who rushes along at high speed  deserves general despisement, for he  publishes by his lunatic-like act that  he has a heartless nature and holds  human life cheap indeed.  Daily one may see certain drivers  driving along at a rate far beyond  safety, and passing" cross strets, not  knowing that there may be such another mad-cap rushing at similar  speed on the street at right angles,  in which case it is difficult to avoid an  accident. The man who prfcrms such  an act in a populous city whr au-  tomobils ar gliding along all th inner streets, should not be^ermitted  to drive one of these vehicles. Not  long since I saw two autos run into  each other, as they, out of sight,  came rushing; towards a common  point, along two streets at right  angles. Had it not been fcra timely  third incident that changed the  there would have been an awful acci-  all or some of seven persons who  were in these ying carriages.  The abuse of the streets^ the endangering of human life, the heart-  and the positive ignorance of others,  make it' necessary to tighten the regulations that look towards public  safety. Themen who know how to  move about the streets in a wise, careful and obliging manner are numerous, and are increasing in numbers.

Poaching was  then regarded, except by the victims  of it. as a venial offense.  Of the first six or seven years of his  life ia London we have no definite information. The tradition, that he first  found employment in holding horses  at the door of the Theater is not improbable; but he soon got inside the  Theatre ��������� in a menial capacity as  "prompter's attendant." tradition says.  ��������� and later became an actor and began his literary career by revising old  plays for a new lease of life on tne  stage. The earliest mention ot him in  London (1592) Is a satirical one hi a  pamphlet by a disappointed and dyins  playwright, Robert Greene.  Early iu the very next year (159:.)  Shakespeare's "Venus and Adonis" appeared, and in 1594 his "Lucrece," both  of which were extremely popular, nip-  idly passing through many editions.  His earliest original plays ��������� as distinguished from mere revisions ��������� also  began to appear, and he became famous as dramatist no less than poet.  Honors came to htm from men of rank  ��������� .the Earl of Southampton, to whom  his two poems had been dedicated ���������  and from Elizabeth, before whom h3  acted at court In December, 1594, nnd  often afterward.  Fortune accompanied fame, and he  soon became a rich man. In the spring  of 1597 he made his first investment ir  real estate by the purchase of New  Place, the best mansion in Stratford,  with nearly an acre of land in the centre of the town. Sir Hugh Cloppton,  for whom It was built, referred to ir,  as his "great house", a title by which  It was popularly known for more than  two centuries. Shakespeare improved  It, and it was doubtless occupied by his  family before he returned to share it  with them ��������� probably as early as loll.  Previous to that time, according to rra,  ditlon, he visited Stratford every year.  He must have-been'there at the death  of his son Hamnet In August, 1596, ind  probably -when his father died id September, 1601, and his mother In 1608;  also at the marriage of his daughte  1616, his widow undoubtedly continued  to make her home at New Place with  the Halls, who are referred to in town  records as living there in 1617. The  house had been devised by will to  Susanna, and the household furniture,  etc., to her and her husband. After  the death of Doctor Hall in 1635, his  NOTICE.  TAKE NOTICE that I, John Hammond, of Nelson Island, occupation  farmer, intend to apply for permission  to purchase the following described  lands:���������  Commencing at a post planted at  th������ South East corner of Pre-emption  No. 2131, being about 3-4 miles in a  widow   remained  there  till  her   own South Easterly direction from mouth of  death in 1649. The estate continued in  tUe family until the death of the  poet's last descendant, Lady Barnard,  ii  1670.  The only reference that Shakespeare  made in this will to his wife is the  interlined bequest of his "second-best  bed with the furniture" thereof; and  this has been repeatedly and strenuously dwelt upon by those who believe  that they were unhappy in their conjugal relations as indisputable proof  of that theory. Indeed, it is the single  fact in their family history which at  first sight seems to support that mistaken contention; but in view of  other well-established facts, it furnishes reclsive evidence to the contrary.  In the first place, Mistress Shakespeare was amply provided for by her  rights of dow erin the estate, to which, j  as proved by an examination of hun-J  dreds of wills of that time, no refer-/  ence Is made in. many such documents.  On the other hand, bequests of beds  and personal articles of leBS value-  kettles, chairs, gowns, hats, pewter  pewter cups, and the like���������are often  made as marks of affection. One John  Shakespeare, of Budforth, near Warwick, leaves his father-in-law his "best  booots" as a sufficient token of respect. The younger Sir Thomas Lucy,  in 1600, gives' his son Richard his "second-best horse and furniture.*' Bartholomew Hathaway, Anne's brother,  in 1621 gives his son Thomas his "second-best pott." John Harris, -a notary of Lincoln, while leaving his wife  a freehold estate, specifies in addition,  "the standing bedstead in the little  chamber, with the second-best feather  bed with a whole furniture thereto belonging." The first-best bed was the  one reserved for visitors, and was often regarded as a family heirloom.  Shakespeare's "second-best bed" was  doubtless the one in their own chamber, and the gift of it was a token of  tender affection.

He bad apparently been in falling  health in January, 1616, and the rough  draft of the will is dated January 25th  of that year, but two months later,  when he was attacked by the fever  that carried bim off, the "January" was  crossed out and "March" substituted.  Tbe "25th" was left���������perhaps through  carelessness, although it may have  happened to be the right date. Later  he grew worse, and bis lawyer, Francis  Collins, was hastily summoned from  Warwick.  A Hatty Testament.  It is not though advisable to wait  for a regular transcript of tbe original  draft, and the three sheets of ordinary paper, after a few^ alterations hur-  py one.  Transient alienation, as In many of  the happiest unions, there may have  been, although we have no proof of It.  Admitting that such there was, the  main question to my thinking, is absolutely settled by indisputable facts to  which I have already referred ��������� particularly the fact, that Shakespeare,  notwithstanding all the attractions of  tbe metropolis. ��������� began, as soon as his  success brought him wealth, to invest  It In making a home for his family and  himself ln the little provincial town of  his birth.  This was no transient whim or fancy,  but the aim. that he steadily kept in  view from the time he bought New  Place in 1597 ��������� and doubtless much  earllei*. while he was earning and saving the money for that Investment ���������  to the time, fourteen years later, when,  after adding to his real estate, buying  the tithes of Stratford and neighboring parishes, and otherwise indent if y-  ing himself with local interests,  he finally.settled there for the remainder of his life.  Can we imagine that he looked forward to sharing that home with a wife  whom he did not love? His father and  mother and bis only son were dead, his  elder daughter was married and settled  In a home of her own. His wife and his  daughter Judith ��������� then 26 years old  and liable to marry soon ��������� were to be  his only companions in New Place. He  was only forty seven, apparently in  good health, and likely to live at least  as long as his wife did ��������� which, as we  have seen, was until 1623.  As It was, they were permitted - to  spend but five years together, but I believe they were years of unalloyed domestic happiness. Mrs. Shakespeare  was a Puritan, as her daughter Susanna and Dr. Hall also were, but there Is  no reason to suppose that the fact seriously troubled Shakespeare.  j te liiT& Heatiug tt.

Some awrward repitltlons and other  inaccuracies had been crossed out,, one  small bequest bad been transferred to  another person, while several for other  friends had been Interlined, together  with the one to his wife.  One alteration strikingly illustrates  the haste and carelessness in.writing  the will. The paragraph concerning  his luaghter Judith���������who" was married  on February 10th, after the draft was  begun in January���������began thus: "Item,  I gyve and bequeath unto my sonne in  L"; but "sonne in L" was crossed out,  and "daughter Judy th" substituted;  and "in discharge of her marriage por-  cion" was Interlined further on. 80  far as I am aware, this has not been  noted In any former comments on the  will.  In spite of Its informalities and defects, including the absence of the testator's seal���������the word "seale" being  crossel out, and "hand" interlined in  the rloslng sentence, "I have hereunto  probated, and is still preserved in the  registry in London. ^  Such is briefly the history ofthe very  last writing to which the dramatist  affixed his signature with the trembling band of a dying man; and the  very last addition made to it���������a few  yines before the end���������has been interpreted as a deliberate and unfeeling  attempt to disgrace the mother of his  children!  Of Anne Shakespeare we know nothing except the bare facts of her marriage and her death. Tradition says  that she earnestly desired to be buried  in the same grave with her husband,  and her tombstone is beside bis.

The wedding appears to have been hastened  on account of Shakespeare's failing  health, as it took place without a license, for which irregularity the couple  a few weeks later were fined and  threatened with excommunication by  the ecclesiastical court at Worcester.  There is no reason to suspect any opposition to the match on the part of  the Quiney family, and the draft of  Shakespeare's will made about a fortnight before the marriage proves that  he then regarded young Quiney as a  prospective son-in-law.

Ballard  1024 Westminster Ave.  THE CONTROL  OF DISEASE  It is well sometimes to pause and  take bearings with regard to the problems of health and sickness. With the  many wonderful discoveries, the serums, the immunities and the improved  knowledge of h>giene, what is the  situation to-day? There are plenty cf  statistics which, although they cannot lie, do not always tell the truth.  It is kaouu that although many diseases are v\ ii ed out, and many others  doomed to extinction at a near day,  theie aie other disordeis ominously  on the increase.  Typhoid fever, one of the most  dreaded of physical ills, is now positively known to be due to polluted  drinking water, or milk, or other food,  or to be spread from house to house  through the agency cf the fly, and its  days are numbered.  Yellow fever and malaria,are no  longer reg-ided as visitations of the  will of >-^eiven, but are recognized as  due io t.ie visitations of mosquitoes;  and it is not really necessary to have  those mosquitoes, although it may  take some time and hard work to get  rid  of them.  Diptheria still rears its head, but  it is no longer formidable, since the  antitox.a ior it has been found.  Tubeiculocia is still all too common,  ,ind the desiim .������.,������ of it will ^mean  coil and care for humanity for years  to come, but the work is well undei  way. The great start was made wh^..  .his dread disease was moved by common scientific consent from the "fatal"  to the "curable" class.  When this has once been done in  regard to any human ill, it is then for  humanity to take care of itself. ^  Those nations that are willing to  spend the most money and take the  most pains to wipe out disease are  coming out first in the race. Great  cities have learned the lesson that  it pays them to take care of the health  of their populations. It is much tot  expensive to permit unnecesary sickness. Clean water pays, clean streets  pay, decent housing for the poor pays  The boards of health are doing much  in thece directions and in many ctiiers,  and as time goes on'they will do more.  As people are educated in these matters they will be willing and able to  give more and wiser co-operation. It  is safe to prophesy that the day. is  coming when people will refuse to put  up with preventable nuisances.^ and  when the house-fly, the mosquito and  the rat will be extinct; and when, if  people want to know anything about  tuberculosis, they will have to read  about it in books.���������Exchange.  until 1662, having attained the ripe age  of seventy-seven.  William Black, in his novel, "Judith  Shakespeare," a noteworthy study of  the life of the period, assumes that the  lady could not write, and she made  her mark in signing two documents  in 1611; but autographs of her sister,  Mrs Hall, are e\tant. John Shakespeare was an expert accountant, but  whether he could write is a disputed  question. Like his wife and many of  his fellow officers in the town, he usually made' his mark, but Sidney Lee,  in his "Life of Shakespeare," asserts  (without citing it) that there is good  evidence in the records of his ability  to write.  That few women in common life  learned to w rite is certain. There were  no free schools for girls, and writing  was not generally taught In the grammar schools. Ink, parchment, and .the  thick paper sometimes used instead,  were too costly for ordinary use. Postal facilities were in'their infancy and  very expensive. The greater part of  leg-*I and official writing wdB done by  prciessional scriveners.  Dr. John Hall, who has been treated  very slightly, if slightingly by the biographers, was one of the most eminent  physicians of his day.  He was a master of arts, had travelled on the Continent, and had te  come proficient in the French Ian  guage. After his death, his ined'ea)  case-book, written in Latin, was translated and published in London (16^7);  and reprinted in 1670 and 1683.  Elizabeth, the only child o'f the Halls,  baptized  on February 21, 160?,  was  married in 1626 to Thomas Nash,, a  well-to-do resident of Stratford. He  died in 1647, and two years later she  married Sir John Barnard of Abing-  ton Manor, near Northampton. She  had no children by either husbanu,  and was therefore the last lineal descendant of the poet. She died and  was buried at Abington, in Februarv,  1670; but no monument was erected  to her memory until 1902, when a tab  let was placed in Abington Church bj  Mr. Stanley Cooper of Oxford.  It is absolutely certain that .William  Shakespcire"s own family line thus  came to an end in the third genera,  tion; and none of his brothers or sis  ters are known to have had any children, with the single exception of  Joan (baptized April 15, 1569), who  married William Hart, and survived  her famous brother thirty years, dying  In 1646. She had-three sons, whe  lived to be remembered in .the poet's  will, and a daughter who died Ie  1607, when four years old.

The annual report of the London Board of Trade shows that tlie  Railways of the United Kingdom carried last year ] .264.800.000 passengers and out of this number only one passenger was killed and  this "was the first ease for a period of 20 months. This is somewhat  of a contrast to the ruthless slaughter on American and Canadian  roads, where the traffic is nothing like so congested. The unfavorable comparison is caused by the carelessness of the officials upon  the roads on this continent compared with those of the United Kingdom.    We certainly have something to learn in this respect.  >��������� EARL GREY'S FAREWELL  Under the above captain the "Standard of Empire" prints  the following editorial note.  "Canada's popular Governor-General. Earl Grey, sails with  Ills family and suite for Canada today, after a brief (holiday0 visit  to England,  into  which  he has crowded  more  activity than  the  ������������������average man permits himself when in full work. Lord Grey's last  act in England was, like so many of his other preoccupations here.  ���������one of practical service to Canada's interests.   By the invitation of  "his Excellency and Lady Grey a large gathering attended the Charles  Urban Trading Company's Room. I'rbanora House. War-dour, street,  yesterday, and were entertained by a remarkable exhibition of  moving pictures, arranged by the Charles Urban Company and tlie  Hon. G. H. Turner.
