 %<  ARE YOU OIS( OUR UST?  NO! WHY?  Vancouvsr City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province ^  VOLUME II  VANCOUVER, British Columbia,   NOV.  18,   1910.  N0^28:'  ATHLETICS  VS.  |.      -Man has always attached greati'n porta nee: to high  physical  [-development.    In all ages the athlete has been the object ot! ad-  ( miration, men seem to glory iu the achievements*, of 'JfjfWi's.   We all  love to >vit,iies.s a eon test of strength and;;skifl-   Tlas teiulencv is  V right in the Very blood'of the raee. and it-is as-it should -be'.-"'"It  is also worthy, of note that in order.to reac'h.ji.nv degree o.f eminence..  \ in the realm'of athletics it is essential that tlie "competitor live a  ' plain, simple life.   No feasting, no whiskey, no--re������kJe������s-living can  M>e allowed,'otherwise'success is impossible.    It is because .of this  b latter fact that, parents frequently encourage their boys to,-join  Athletic clubs, fueling that they'are unlikely to form habits of dis-  I sipation, as lorrg'as they. are engaged in healthy .recreation.  .  ' For a.good'many years the local  "athletic   club"   has   been  j  viewed in this light and has succeeded iii producing many prominent   athletes   in   various  branches of sport7 It has generally been  viewed Ms a place where a yoiing man could surround himself with  healthy'^; influence* ,and companions.   It will therefore be. a subject  I for sincere 'regret.with many" to know that an attempt is being  I made to merge the '���������athletici club" with the "Commercial club."  "We have nothing whatever to say' against the hitter organization,  it is a ������������������club" in the ordinary sense of the term and as such has its;  "bar" which is perfectly legal, and as far as we know it is well'  run, but is it advisable to have a young men's athletic club connected   with a social organization where liquors   are freely and  |habitually used?    This is a pertinent question and one in which  the citizens of Vancouver are, or should be, deeply interested.   We  submit it is not advisable and every effort should be made to. discourage the union.  I        Of course it is well known that the moving spirit in both or-  1 ganizations is the proprietor of a prominent local liquor business.  J There is no desire ou our part to cast any reflections, upon a citizen  ��������� because he happens to be in that business, but on the other hand  ^the "athletic club" has been a serai-public institution,, at least many  [citizens subscribed to the stock of the institution simply to help it  along, and on more than one occasion appeals have been made  [to the public for aid, and consequently in our opinion it is undesirable that this semi-public athletic association should be coupled up  with a private club or .too closely identified with any private business interests; .7...   .,  ,7 ...- v.77.,7 \7.-,,-77���������.'  The "Gold Seal" road race is now recognized as a championship  affair and is started from a liquor ptpre and finishes at the same  place, the dressing room is among the whiskey barrels of this  establishment, this again is undesirable. If any concern wishes to  run a road race for advertising purposes, lef; them do so, but when  the winner is declared to be the provincial champion it is time to  call a halt, nnd question the wisdom of the course pursued.  Sport is one of the best tonics society can have, and if properly  conducted is a great benefit to the youth of the community. But  sport and whiskey is an unholy alliance wrhich will xdtimately  result in the ruin of both the sport and the competitor. _���������      -  BRIDGES.  Money by-laws are to be submitted for the two new bridges  -one from the foot of Burrard street to Kitsilano, and one from  Iieorgia and Dunsmuir street to Harris street. The council heard  umerous deputations for various sites and finally decided as  bove stated.  It There was a strong difference of opinion regarding the bridge  jonnectiug Harris street to Georgia and Dunsmuir by means of a  'Y" in the bridge. Aid.* MaePhersOn contended for a cqnnec-  ion between Harris and Dunsmuir, leaving Georgia to be connected  ater to Barnard and Prior, but West End influence prevailed and  it was decided to connect the two into one bridge. It means the  sxpenditure of very large sums aud the citizens should go carefully  ������nd study the situation well before finally voting the money. The  present action will -affect- the future very -materially.^7 ^   BRITAW'S ANNUAL PKINKTOt  Mr. G. B. Wilson, Secretary of the United Kingdom Alliance,  is just submitted to   The   Times   the annual estimate of   Great  ritain's drink bill for 1909.   The to^al amount is placed at nearly  70,000,000.   This, however, while large enough, is a decrease on  ie figures for 1908 by $20,000,000.   To this national bill for intoxi-  [ants England and Wales contribute nearly $643,000,000, and Scot-  ind and Ireland each about $66,000.    The average per head of  Iiopulation is estimated at nearly $18.00 for England and Wales,  Iver $13.00 for Scotland, and about $15.00 for Ireland. It is  stimated that only about 55 per cent, of the people consume these  [quors, so that the average for the drinking public will be nearly  wble these figures, and will be about $33.00 per head for the  iglish drinker, $24.00 for the Scotch drinker, and $27.00 for the  [���������ish drinker. If we take the average family as consisting of five  Iprsons, we find that each family in England and Wales consumed  the average 4 barrels of beer and 6 gallons of spirits, wine and  [thier liquors; the Scotch family used only about 1 1-5 barrels of  ?er and 7 4-5 gallons of spirits, etc., while the average Irish family  id 3 barrels of beer and about 5 gallons of spirits, etc. To most  us in Canada this consumption of alcoholic iiquors will seem  iartling. aud when we consider that two-thirds of this enormous  jink bill is supposed to be paid by the working classes, the magni-  ^de of Britain's drink curse will be even more apparent. The workmen of Great Britain cannot afford to waste over $500,000,000  *nually upon beer and whiskey. National degeneracy must surely  ^company such an expenditure.  AN IMPORTANT DISCOVERY.  A mamomth cave has been discovered in German East Africa in  It. Nangoma. about an hour to the south of NandenVbo. Though  fscovered in August, 1909, it was not explored till, February, 1910,  len the police officer, Weckauf, and a missionary named Ambros  lyer made a partial investigation of it. The entrance is 43 meters  de by 21 meters high, and the whole cave has a length of 329  jters. It is of pipe-like shape and has a funnel-shaped opening,  lused by a cave-in. It is in a chalk mountain and caused by water  jsion. The natives had long known of it. but concealed its exis-  ice from the whites. During the uprising of 1905-06 they used it  [r a hiding place for thousands, completely baffling the enemy,  i contains a spring of fresh w'ater, which gives it additional value  a refuge. Its entrance lies in the primeval forest. Evidence is"  rong that it has been the habitat of thousands of bats through un-  ld years. It is hoped that i'unds will be forthcoming to provide for  thorough exploration, since this can hardly fail to yield prehistoric  lains and antiquities of great interest and value.

Public vs. Private Service  Some Questions for Commissioner Edgett���������Why Do the License  Victuaiers Support Bim?  The office of license commissioner is a purely honorary position, bearing no emolument and is in the nature of a public service,  gratuitously given, at least that is what it is supposed to be . The  duty of the commission is to see that the license laws are properly  observed and that the piiblic interest: is carefully conserved. It  will readily be seen that no man coultl properly and impartially  discharge such onerous duties if he wei& directly or indirectly connected with the business of the licens������ej������$tywas because of this that  the legislature decreed that "no person holding a license could act  as a member of the board, nor any one interested in a hotel oi* restaurant holding a license." This, however, does not go far enough  as it permits a member of the board to enter into extensive business  relations with those who hold licenses, such as supplying groceries,  meats, provisions, crockery, furniture, etc.  The mayor cannot supply the city with goods or enter into any  contract in which the city is interested. An alderman is not allowed  to profit by his position.  A school trustee must religiously refuse any monetary advantage his business may give him.  But a licence commissioner may do business directly with as  mauy hotels and restaurants as he can induce to deal with him.  Tliis is manifestly unfair and unwise, and is a privilege which has  been much abused in the past and is being seriously abused at the  present time. ���������������������������  A member of our staff has been carefully investigating this  .abuse for some time, and, as stated in our last issue, we purpose-  laying    before the public    the facts,  also asking    Commissioner  Edgett to publicly reply to certain questions which the citizens have  a right to know:  ������������������    Fact No. 1���������The "Louvre'Ion Carralstre^^  and Cordova streets, is masquerading as an hotel, when as a matter  of fact, it has no proper dining room, but only a lunch counter.   Is  it not a fact that they now buy their supplies from Commissioner  Edgett?  Fact No. 2���������-About one year ago the proprietor of the Astor  hotel wras summoned before the license board to answer for the  trivial offence of allowing people to stand in the doorway.  Is it not a fact that prior to this time they had been buying their  meat from Commissioner Edgett and had just changed their account  to purchase from "another shop," when they were summoned, as  above stated? And is it not also true that immediately following  this summons the said hotel again gave their account to Commissioner Edgett?  It is also stated that the party in charge of the buying for the  hotel explained that the reason they closed their account with the  "other shop" was because it was better that Edgett should have  the account.  Fact No. 3���������The Waverly had some difficulty about their building not complying with the law.  Is it not true that upon some small concession being made to ���������  them by the commission they transferred their account to Com- ;  missioiter Edgett.   Why?  Fact No. 4���������A certain hotel on Cordova street, not a mile away  from the Russ house, had been sub-letting their dining room, which  is contrary to law. They had been dealing with three different  grocers who gave very good satisfaction. This house reeeutly took  over control of their own dining room fearing they would get into  trouble with the commission and instructed the steward to buy from  Edgett. It is reported that the steward refused, result, resignation and exit steward.  Fact No. 5.���������The license commission is also used as a medium of  collecting accounts. Frequently appeals are made to the commission to force hotels to pay up. Thus it will be seen that the hotel  trade is a very desirable trade for the grocer and provision merchant.  Will Commissioner Edgett deny that his trade with the hotels  has vastly increased since he became license commissioner?  Why does he openly boast that he cannot be defeated?  Will Commissioner Edgett deny that he is strongly supported  by the license victuaiers?  Will Commissioner Edgett support an amendment to the city  charter prohibiting license commissioners from dealing wjtk* the  holders of licenses? ~"~^  We submit that the foregoing questions a/e Periin^itl2Vj:JSr'fe  an answer; The -erectors1'place a citizen1 6fi tn'encense commission to properly protect their interests and not to advance their  own personal ends. We contend that it is time the present abuse  of privilege were ended and independent, impartial persons elected.  who will enforce the law, and this Commissioner Edgett has not done.  Ill .

This journa.1 is absolutely free,  from corporation control, j In politics we are independent and our  columns open to all to discuss any question, just s6 long as it] is  discussed in a fair and courteous manner. t 7  Another gentleman remarked that he had read the "Call"  through carefully and then re-read it and found within its eight  pages more mental pabulum than in all the rest of the city papers  combined." These were his own unsolicited words. We gratefully  accept the same and will''simply say, that it is our intention, to improve with age.  "You do not discuss live topics," said one man. A late copy  of the paper was laid before him and he had to confess he was  wrong. We do not claim to discuss all of the live topics, that is  impossible. We select those which we view of most general importance. ';  "You do not publish the news the people demand." Correct, that  is, if it is meant by that, we not publish sensational news. We do  not intend to. Jt is not the fnnction.of any newspaper, daily or  weekly to pandor to the passions; of the public by, publishing sensational items of public gossip. Unfortunately too many journals  do this and flourish. By this practice they create the demand for  light questionable reading. This journal has \iothing to offer to  those who wish to have the sensibilities tickled with all manner of  shady news. We seek to publish that whieh may be read with profit  and interest.  "You claim'to be reformers but do not reform.'* We make no  such claim, nor do we wish to be classed as such. We are not philanthropists, but a business concern seeking to run our business in a  free independent manner;! ol~ad-  vertising, such as liquor ads. patent medicine, etc., but on the other  hand this journal does publish criticism of the companies holding  local franchises such as cannot be secured through any other source  and as stated is absolutely free from corporation control.  BRITISH COLUMBIA FRUIT.  "There are probably still a good many people who wOuder what  British Columbia is doing with a national apple show, and what  interests can afford to supply the $25,000 of prize money that has  brought to Vancouver one of the most remarkable collections of  orchard products ever gathered together in America. We are apt  to forget that British Columbia is going to be one of the chief  fruit-growing centres of the continent. In the valleys of that  province land that ten years ago was growing sage brush and bunch  grass is now as carefully tilled and as beautiful an orchard country  as the stretch between Hamilton and Grimsby along the shores of  Lake Ontario that is a source of pride to every Ontario man."  The above is au extract from the Toronto Weekly Globe and  indicative of the growing interest in British Columbia that is being  takenJby out friends in_the East. ,..���������_.._ ^^,...,..^i..^^.____.^=J^^.^j,  The national apple show was the greatest add Vancouver and  British Columbia ever had and is a most gratifying result f������r the  effort of our citizens. ������  GREATER VANCOUVER  The Commission Form of Government Turned Down.  The city council last Monday turned down the recommendation  of the joint "Annexation Committee" that a commission form of  government be adopted by Greater Vancouver. The opposition was  led chiefly by Aldermen Hepburn and McBride and ably supported  by Aldermen Whitesides, Ramsay, Roberts, McTaggart.  The only reason submitted being that it was time enough to  change when the people asked for it. But in strange contradiction  to this the same aldermen refused to allow the question to ever  go to the people for decision.  South Vancouver is very determined on this point, and we  think justly so, as our present system is hopelessly inadequate and  incompetent. Not necessarily the members of the council but the  "system'' is what is at fault, and until we have a change in thi*  regard it seems hopelessly impossible to get competent administration.  CAPILANO BRIDGE.  Quietly aud unostentatiously developments are going on of  whieh the public hear little. Mr. H. Peterson has just completed  a large trestle bridge, for the B. C. Electric Railway, over the  Capilano for the car extension in that section. The bridge is a  structure 4S5 feet long and 83 feet high and has over 7,000 feet of  piling and 200,000 feet of timber. It is not only a bridge of considerable size and importance but was a most difficult one to construct, owing to the nature of the ground.  Mr. Peterson is a resident of Mount Pleasant, Vancouver, and  an experienced bridge builder and is to be congratulated upou the  successful completion of this big contract.  WHY NOT IN BRITISH COLUMBIA?  The Manitoba government is being urged to adopt the same  ^policy, as the, Ontario government in connection with the supply  of electric power in bulk to the cities and towns and municipalities  of the province at cost price. As in Ontario, the Avork of distribution of light and power to the consumer from these centres will be  undertaken by the local authorities.���������We would add why not ia  British.

She'd look at him a-settin' there, with  one   cheek   pressed   agaiust  her  knee,  And then she'd softly stroke his hair  and sadly turn her face to me;  The tremblin' sighs she used to give 1  always fully understood���������  We felt afraid he mightn't live, because  he was so sweet and good.  Sometimes, when he had went to sleep,  we'd stand beside him where he  lay,  And hear his breathin' soft and deep,  and, whisperin' to me, she'd say:  "Oh, ain't he beautiful?   How sad tbe  world would be without him here';'  How innocent he is, bow glad we ought  to be to have him, dear."  And then she'd kind of choke and give  a sob she'd held back all she could.

And our city has grown in the most  natural and permanent manner. In  fact if ever a rapidly growing centre  kept its equipoise, in even balance,  Vancouver has done so.  The factories, large, ���������ahJct< small,  shipping lines, small and large; railway lines; long aqd 'longer; > tram  lines superior to anything in Canada,  and considering the population from  the beginning up to the present,, the  greatest on the continent;, the financial institutions, including banks and  loan companies; the schools and  churches; the vastness.and perman:  ence of the central buildings, private'  company and public; the street.'  sewerage, water-delivering and other  public advantages, all combine to hold  up Vancouver as a marvel of progress,  creditable to her citizens and to Canada, "the nation of the twentieth  century:-' What Canada will, prove  herself to be to the world, during  this coming hundred years in the race  of nations, Vancouver will prove herself to be, among the progressive and  life-throbbing cities of all time.  No man can look within her limits  and into her potentialities without  feeling assured of her immediate, permanent glorious advancement. No  man can look outside and behold the  splendid suburban centres, North,  East, South and West, without concluding that these growing wealthy  municipalities will shortly add their  strength to Vancouver in an official  manner, as they are now doing in a  practical every day manner.  Who can go outside the city and  observe the most enterprising and  well-timed plans of the B. C. Electric  Ry. Co., rapidly running into material  form, to the great advantage of the  whole public and to the growth of  Vancouver, without seeing a guarantee  of a population and wealth of a most  surprising character?

THE WAY TO G000H  There is a right and a wrong way  to do everything; and since coughing  is unfortunately one of our common  acts, perhaps it is as well to know how  to set about it. London Answers tells  us:.��������� -    ^ ^������ .7    '  Few people know', how to !cough  properly! In fact, it never occurs to  the oidinary. individual.that there are  right and wrong ways of doing it; yet  it is a matter of no small .importance.  . It every sigh mejins a drop of blood  out of the heart, as people say, every  cough means some greater or less  proportion of time .knocked off pone's  life. Most people'cough as loudly and  forcibly as they can. Some chronic  coughers seem proud of the noise  they make. But it is a, rather costly  noise, for the simple reason that it  tears and inflames the lungs.  The lungs consist of an extraordinarily delicate, sponge:like tissue,  "which sometimes gets inflamed and  choked, with phlegm. When we .try  to get rid;of this substance we cough.  But, ojbviouslyf if/we remove it violently we must necessarily injure 'the  delicate lung tissue.  Therefore train yourself to cough  as gently as possible7 After *a little  practice you will find it. quite easy  to do so. In that way you. will do  a minimum of mischief to 'the .lungs,  and add years to your life.  Mrs. Caller:���������"I understand your  husband is troubled with rheumatism."

One day a Bishop chanced into the  shtiiT of a druggist Who was 'jreryifoiqL  of a joke���������on somebody else. The  druggist, wishing to have a joke at  the Bishop's expense, asked:  "Bishop, can you tell me the difference between an ass and a Bishop?"  The Bishop could:not.  "Well," said the druggist, smiling all  over, "an ass carries its cross (burden)'  upon its back but a bishop carries his  cross ��������� (of gold) on his breast.  "\tary good," replied the Bishop, and  then continued: "Now then, my friend,  can you tell the difference between an  ass and a druggist?"  After some hesitation. the druggist  answered:."No, sir, 1 can't."   .  "Neither can I,'* retorted the Bishop  as he walked out.

M. C.  A.'s. S. A. undertakings, and all the  rest of necessary improvements, are  prodigious, imperative, urgent . and  persistent.  The electors are asked for large  sums of - money and must vote these  sums, not only for their immediate  advantage, but in the interests of the  highest economy and for the best  service to be handed down to the  future  generations.  Frequently I am asked my opinion  of the future. My answer has been  steady, pointed and unchanged for  twenty-two years, so far as Vancouver  is concerned. Our future is safe, sure,  assured, even glorious among the'great  cities of all history. We hold the key  of Western Canada, and Canada holds  the key of the growing competitive  nations of the world.  Population increases.    The breeding  of the human race, Its natural increase,  lis   constant   and   multltudinously   advancing  at  a momentous  pace.    The  [sparsely populated, well governed, law  abiding, healthful aud naturally wealthy   countries   must   win   out   at   an  enormous   rate   over   all   other   competitors;   and  among    these    Canada  'stands pre-eminently at the head.   And  as  before  said  Vancouver  holds  first  place in Canada for the future.  Hence to sum up in a few words: ���������  My advice to all who are debating  about the future, is to stand at your  post in our Terminal City, and de-  ! termine to make it your permanent  ihome on earth. When leaving Van-  vouver go to the next, the only best  in the universe, viz., to the New  Jerusalem.  This is the place, Vancouver. I mean,  ifor optimism and faith in the future.  I And. as bad as we imagine ourselves  jto be as a city, I must say that our  [city is as well governed as the best in  I Canada, and therefore as well as" any" j  ion the continent. In closing these hur-'  ���������vied   reiharks,   I   v.ov.ld   say     to     the  electorate, vote liberally at tho doming  pVetion ii; Jan-nary, for the p:;s-age of  the money by-luvs. and go slowly ar.d  Icerefully iu the way ot' changing the  Vancouver.

Tolerance is a fine virtue���������and there  is great need of it in this.Canada of  ours���������there is need of it even jiu  Vancouver.  Just now there are a great many  British arrivals here���������all sorts of men  and women.  It may perhaps be as well to point  out to the Canadian citizen, that they  are not all remittance men, and the  usual judgment of condemning the  bunch as no good, is not fair, to say  the least of it.  "Have you noticed the increasing  number of Britishers coming this way."  Can'you Imagine what this means?"  They are forming Fraternal Societies,  here, there and everywhere, massing  together to help each other, and it in  right here where the older element of  British citizens can check the' in.  tolerance of the new; arrival. At present the prevailing feeling in the  Lodges is to be tolerant to each other.  Occasionally some bitterness arises  ���������some decent Britisher anxious and  willing to become a good Canadian  citizen���������anxious for the uplifting of  his countrymen butts up against;  some callous minded individual  through inexperience, and. his Judgment is for a time biassed, but as time  passes, with the instinct of fair-play,  he sees why his Canadian brother is  up in arms against him. The prairies  with their remittance men, tbe* towns  and cities with their new arrivals,  dudes, etc., who tell the Canadians  "all about it, and how to do it, don't  you know style," we must admit this  is not right.  For seven years I have watched the  growth of the. city, its incoming ant  outgoing people, and occasionally oik  comes up against a countryman, s-  bigoted, so narrow, tbat we feel almost  ashamed of him, and can oli'i^'leavt  it to time and experience to changi  such a persdn'svlews.  There is this to say, however, fpi  such a person. The chances are that  he has never been 50 miles away, from,  home or his own city, the impressions,  environment and everything else is  so new, that for a time at least we  ought to bear with this kind of animal.  This is a plea for tolerance���������give  the British a show. He'll have it one  way or another, and the majority  will make good. This is showing itself in this city now. It is weil ti  remember that wheu he comes her-  he has not left home and country altogether, Canada is still home io him  and he has the right before any othei  man to settle here if he chooses.  To the broadmiiided or ti ave". led  Canadian this article does not appeal  he knows and understands, tint t'  every Canadian not. in close touch  with the Mother Country. 1 hops thi  will appeal to his consideration.  We Hritish are here to settle���������to uplift with the mother country's teachings and flag, all that is best, the home  life, the fraternity and the loyalty  already   here.  Let us help each other and be tolerant. To the Britishers let us remember thut the lordly air ot" indifference  and patronage is out of place here or  anywhere else, and whatever one may  think, it is foolish to forget that this  is a new country���������and that progress  will iiot be stopped, which m?ans that  when these large new cities on this  glorious continent have reached tlieir  ambitions���������rhe old cinos of th? world  will be behind in many things com- i en" by our young people was also de- j  paratively. To the Canadian it is well | lightf'ul. A very pleasing and very j  to remember that you can't stop the  incoming of men and women of all  nations, and surely the British have  as much right to become good .Canadian citizens as the Galic-ians.

Don't forget if any industries arrive  here, it means British Capital, labor  Tbe South Vancouver Council has.  voted $500 for the expenses of a delegation to Ottawa in reference to the  iredglng of the Fraser.

The Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners opened a new  branch of their organization at Central Park on Friday, November 11th.

Henderson, secretary of Vancouver First.  Brother J. Anderson, Sr., was elected'  president,. J. Anderson Jr., secretary,  and Brother F. Woodrow, treasurer.  Central Park branch is very lucky in  haying such a member as Brother J;  Anderson, Sr.; as their first president.  For 38 year6; has Brother Anderson  been a member of a "trades union and  'iis long and varied experience will be  i great, benefit ������0 the new branch.  A "chip off the old block,"-is Brother  J.

Woodrow the branch has a trustworthy treasurer. His genial presence  in the Vancouver First branch will be  greatly missed. There are quite a  number of old time members in the  branch and with the Central Park organization is assured.

"Oh," replied the gentleman, "that  is a native of Australia."  The countryman covered his eyes  with his hands as he exclaimed in  horror, "Well, well! my sister married  one of them!"���������Judge. :  ,7 JACKED AGAINST TIME.   ���������:  A charming Southern girl, as Lip-  (pincott's avers, who was convalescing  from typhoid fever, received an invita-.|  tion from a young man who was very  much in love with her to take a drive.  She obtained her physician's permission on the promise of returning in  half an hour.  The young- man ^stuttered badly,  an,d, overjoyed at seeing the girl again  after her long illness, arid knowing her  keen delight in tormenting him, his  difficulty was greater than usual.  "W-w-w-w-where," he stammered as  they started off, "sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shall  w-w-w-w-w-w-we g-g-g-go?"  "I think," she replied demurely, "it  it is time now to go home.'  ;   COULDN'T GO THE LAST.  An Irishman had just "come over"  and, being hungry, went, to one of the  swellest hotels in New. York. When  the waiter appeared lotake his order  he said: '"Bring me the best you  have."  After being gone a few minutes the  waiter returned .with a glass of water,  a bunch of celery and a lobster.  When about time ��������� to; cl^ecli' him up  the waiter returned to' the' customer,  asking why he had not eaten his meal.

W- Keen, ot Philadelphia, who has  great repute as a'surgeon*. In New  York, one^winter afternoon last year,  her saw 7a~ican7������lip7;on: on icy pavement and fall heavily. He hastened  at once to the prior fellow's assistance  and found that he had broken his leg.  Dr.?Keen used fiis umbrella as a  splint,; and, with his own and several  borrowed handkerchiefs, bandaged the  broken limb tightly. As he finished  his task the ambulance arrived.    -  "You've bandaged this rather well,"  the young blue-uniformed ambulance  surgeon said to Dr. Keen.  "Thank you,''' said the other.  "O, not at all. I suppose," the youth  resumed, "that you have been reading  up some 'first aid to the injured'  treatise, eh? They say a little learning is a dangerous thing, but, really,  the little you have learned about  surgery you have put to good account.  Give me your name and address, and  I'll forward your umbrella to you."  "I'll give you my card," said Dr.  Keen. He did so, and the young surgeon flushed a little as he read on it  the name of one of the greatest of  modern surgeons.  WHAT JOHN   KNEW.  The teacher of one of the classes  in a school in the suburbs of Cleveland had been training her pupils in  anticipation of a visit from the school  commissioner. At last he came, and  the classes were called out to show  their attainments. The arithmetic  class was the first called, and in order  to make a good impression, the teacher  put the first question to Johnny Smith,  the star pupil.  "Johnny, if coal is selling at $6 a  ton and you pay the coal dealer $24,  how many tons of coal will he bring  you?"  "Three," was the prompt reply from  Johnny.  The teacher, much, embarrassed,  said: "Why, Johhn, that isn't right."  "Oh, I know it ain't, but they do it  anyhow."���������Philadelphia Record.  .

Justice Giegerich, noticing his  friend's plight, laid a soothing hand  on the latter's shoulder, and said:  "jlv dear fellow, can I do anything  Tor- you?"  "Yes. your honor,'' replied the law-  ver. in plaintive tones, "you will  greatly oblige me by overruling this  motion.-'  o     SERIOUS   BLUNDER.        7  Newport was aroused last month  over a story that J.

"An American took in Trouville's  grands semaine last year. When his  bill was sent up he paused in his  breakfast and studied it with a sarcastic smiie. Then he sent for the  hotel clerk.  '"See here,' he said, 'you've made a  mistake in this bill.'  "'Oh, no, monsieur, Oh, no!' cried  the clerk.  " 'Yes you have,' said the American,  and with a sneer he pointed to the  total. 'I've got more money than that,'  he  said."���������St.   Paul   Dispatch.  We  Busy  Already making pictures for  Xmas for our customers. Don't  put off till the last few weeks.

Joseph   Jefferson,   the   actor,   once  told this story to a friend:  "I was coming down in the elevator  of the Stock Exchange building, and  at one of the intermediate floors a man  whose face I knew as I know yours  got in. He greeted me very warmly  at once, said it was a number of years  since he had met me, and was very  gracious and friendly. But I couldn't  place him for the life of me. I asked  him as a sort of feeler how he happened to be in New York, and he answered, with a touch of surprise, that he  had lived there for several years.  Finally I told him, in an apologetic  way, that I couldn't recall his name.  He looked at me for a moment, and  then he said, very quietly, that his  name was U. S.-Grant."  r. "What did you do, Joe?" his friend  I asked.  j "Do?" he replied, with a characteristic smile. "V.'hy, I get out at the next  \ floor, for fear I'd ask him if he had  j ever been in tlie war'.''
