Stevens, Editor.  to  No. 47:  *,  1  1  A  License Bddrd  Mayor Taylor has~ written at letter, tp the License Board resigning his chairmanship and refusing to act in conjunction with them apy longer.  He gives as his reasons���������"It is a purely political  board." The board is constituted of two members elected by the city at large, the Mayor and  two citizens appointed by the Government. From  this it will be observed that the citizens elect three  out of the five members from, the city Jat large.  The two members appointed by.the Government  are Messrs. Pike and Dr. Patterson, two gentlemen absolutely above reproach.- The only objection the Mayor dare make tp these gentelmen  is that they are guilty of being of a different political stripe than he is. His Worship has repeatedly stated that he has no politics-^we^ assert ������that  Reciprocity  Feeling of Unrest Spreading���������Change in Fiscal  Policy Not Favored.  Now that the nation has had an opportunity to  give careful consideration to the proposed reciprocal agreement, the public expression of opinion  is becoming more and more hostile.

The general revenue was all  appropriated a week or two ago, so the only  source to draw from for the remainder of the  year is the balance of our borrowing power. This,  borrowing power is based upon 20 per cent, of  the average of the last (.two preceding year's assessment. Taking in our very latest assessment,  which has just been revised, we can borrow, $17,-  914,080.79.  Our present debtjs $16,074,171.21, leaving a  balance of $1,839,909.58.

"The price of wheat has already fallen from 10  cents to 12 cents per bushel since the reciprocity  bill was,introduced in Congress, and the wholesale  prices~df many- other farm products" affected by  that measure have also fallen. If the bill is  would collect through the courts the charge's for enacted prices will fall still lower, with the result  keeping tl 3 children.   This is rather a high-handed   that the 35,00O,Q00 people living on farms will have  'matter in our estimation, and,.only emphasizes the  need of some cominon basis upon which air our  civic grants should rest.  h  CONFEDERATION AND THE BRITISH  NORTH AMERICA ACT.  That the Provinces could have continued much longer  distinct was .mposible. With separate tariffs, no method  of promoting intercourse between themselves, no means;  of combining to make representations abroad on qeus-  tions jointly affecting them, or to unite in the redemption of '.th e Northwest from savagery, a union of the  Provinces had to come. The pity is, that it should have  been accomplished at the time and with the object it  immediately served. A Constitutional deadlock had  arisen between Quebec and Ontario, caused by the  clashing .of church and state. The remedy, the removal  of all semblance of connection between the two, the  politicians of the day would not face. Both parties  agreed".���������!��������� *���������. ������,r!i?.:rver; new arrangement was made, they,  would leave the institutions peculiar to Quebec alone.  It was acordingly agreed to copy the American system,  to substitute a federal for the existing legislative union.  Ontario and Quebec were to separate, each to be autonomous and self-governing as regards local affairs7 with a  federal house to deal with maters common' to them and  the other provinces that had agred to join. There were  no compunctions as to leaving the English speaking people of Quebec to the rule of the majority. Protests from  the minority against tneir abandonment were treated as  the expressions of bigots, somewhat the same as similar  protests from the Protestant minority in Ireland regarding  Home Rule are treated to-day. - It was represented on  behalf of the Quebec majority iullie same way as Mr.  Redmond is now talking on behalf of the Roman Gather  lie Hierarchy in Ireland/that there was nothing to fear,  that the Protestants would be the objects of their most  considerate care. McGee scouted the idea that the  Protestant minority would be in anyi way injured. He  declared that they would be the pets of the njajority, the  spoiled children of the new Dominion, that, they would  be smothered with kindness. Others, whom such gush  did not blind, thought that the minority could not suffer  with a preponderating Protestant influence; in the Federal  House,, while.there were those who looked on Confederation as a temporary stage, bound to end in a legislative  union. The representatives of the minority gave little  (Continued on page 4)  just so much less >money with which to buy manufactured articles. Will a decrease in the purchasing power of the farmers benefit the factory workers in our towns and cities ? On the contrary, will  it not injure'them by depriving them of a part of  their most valuable market for their products?  " -Will not this mean less goods handled by our railways and sold by our merchants? Any legislation that .diminishes the capacity of the farmer to  buy manufactures hurts all other business inter-;  "���������ests."���������N. J. Bachelder, Of the American National'  Grange."'" ,. 7  Mr. C. W. L. Launspach, of London, England,  says in a letter than." an inevitable result of the  reciprocity agreement is therefore that Canada  must not. in future expect as favorable borrowing  terms in Great Britain as has been the case-these  last few years... The attitude of the English investor will be that, if Canada looks to the United.  States for Her trade, she must'.'also look to the,  United States for her money."  The Harvester Trust says: "Should the reciprocity agreement with Canada be consummated,  additional plants will be constructed preparatory  to increased demand for its machines. There is no  question but that reciprocity with Canada would  greatly enhance its agriciiltural position, and this  fact,, together with harvesting machinery going  into Canada free pf Charge, would result in earnings of the International Harvester Company  showing a pronounced increase."       ���������  LONGER HOURS FOB HOTEL BARS.

"  successfully carry oot the scb������me until sucb' time as  the district affected shall have become able to assume  tbe ������ulLre8ponstbility. This is ot very great importance,  as tbe'nnancial aspect of tbe Bcheme is tbe one wbicb  will present tbe most difficulty.  Tbe significance of this question eannot be overestimated, nor tbe urgency for immediate action. I would  therefore beg to impress on tbe committee the grave  necessity of facilitating tbe solution of this problem as  far as we posBibly can."  tion of tbe same;  Oowing to the bitter opposition of the Mayor  is was agreed to drop, for the present, clauses  X*'P" and "E" and leave them for the joint conference to discuss.  In considering this problem, which is undoubtedly the most significant that has ever been submitted to the city, there are ������ few things which  should be carefully borne in mind���������first, that in  regard to-rapidity and-permanence of expansion���������  "Vancouver holds a unique position among the  cities of the continent; secondly, this growth has  only begun as it were, and is destined to continue  for many years; thirdly, that because of this  rapid expansion the demands on the city's exchequer are very heavy, and consequently it is  advisable to adjust tht financial obligations so  as to jnake an equitable distribution of costs of  improvements, in other wards, when a large and ,  permanent work is to be undertaken-it would be  well to finance it independent of the city's ordinary improvements; fourthly, the question of sewerage is^of paramount importance and must be dealt  with in a most broad-minded mariner, making  provision for all time to come. This means that  the system when inaugurated will be greatly in  excess of the present requirements and hence will  impose" a very heavy burden on the tax-payer at  the commencement.  Some people have the idea that all that is necessary is to say, that "large trunk sewers should  be constructed," and, presto! it comes to pass.  It is this utter lack of appreciation of the stupendous difficulties to be surmounted whieh causes' so  niany citizens������������������ to 'unfa. 'ly.criticise..-the'tardy, pro-,  gress of public works, and is also the reason why  the civic authorities so frequently take a course  which will give immediate results, even though  they are only temporary. It requires both brains  and courage to wait for permanent results in the  face of a clamoring public.  The present, situation in Greater Vancouver  as regards sewerage is critical, in that the course  adopted now will decide what will be the sanitary state of Vancouver in years to come. We  have it in our power to lay the f mndations.upon  wb'sh future generations may build with confidence, or we can follow a make-shif-t iicy which  will mean that in five or ten years from now  the work will have to be done over again at great  expense and inconvenience.  The first step necessary- in carrying out this  scheme.is to make a complete topographical.survey, of .the'whole district and to tabulate the data,  '.then to.make plans and profiles for submission to  an expert sanitary engineer. '  This specialist should be a man of eminent ati-  thority and ability, ar -1 very great care should  be exercised in choosing him . Upon him ��������������� 11 fall  the responsibility of recommending the best system  to adopt, both regarding method of construction  and of disposal.    It-will also be necessary for the  ~    The Monetary Times,'in a very pointed: editorial,  states the case in behalf of the Public ^Farmers'  .

There  are well-defined suspicions that* some in high positions are balking justice.   The sudden removal of  Mr. Tra\ re to Kingston penitentiary was'effected  rL a critical juncture.   Perhaps incorrect/conclusions were arrived at by the public in consequence.  Now we are told that the Farmers Bank cases  which were anticipated to have come up before  Judge Winchester at the March sessions will be  traversed to the May assizes and heard by a  superior court judge instead of a senior country  judge in the sessions.   This is unwelcome news.  Delay is dangerous to the cause of fair play.   If  it is intended thus to soothe the public outcry, we  fear a mistake is being made.    The countrv intends to see the Farmers Bank scandal prpbed to  the bottt-in. i. ^d those responsible made'to suffer  the-proper penalties?'' '  \ ',  f  districts affected to agree upon some definite  system for control. Aid. MacPherson suggested  that we go n further than agreeing upon the general plans on paper, then each municipality carry  out its system to that plan as they found it neces-'  sary to construct. This was also favored by the  Mayor. Tf -e is a vital weakness in this suggestion wh would result in the complete failure of the scheme, for instance, we will presume  that the plans showed a trunk sewer running  through that part of South Vancouver known as  Cedar Cottage and the council of 'that Municipality decided to construct that part but that the city  authorities were not ready; or neglected, or delayed the construct; i of that portion running  through the city, immediately we would have a  row on our hands, with the usual bickerings, procrastinations and disputes as to "rights, etc. Agairi\'  presuming that the final outlet were in Point-Grey'  and the city completed; the main trunk to itsY  western.boundary, and Point Grey, not being able  to use the sewer and not able to fin?.nee it, had not  or would not complete the. system to its outlet  we again see that, the.difficulty and possible controversy which" would result. We, therefore, believe  that it is essential to the success of the''scheme  that there be a definite arrangement for carrying  out-its'construction in such a-way^as to meet-the  requirements most expeditiously. As we pointed  out previously this will entail great expense long  before the whole'system-will be used to .'.anything  like its'full capacity, and consequently it will be  necessary to have some staple method of financing.  The Provincial Government has offered to assist  In this respect'and-it might be wise to get special  powers granted to float debenture loans on the  system and induce the Government to either advance the money or to guarantee the bonds until  such time as the district is able to bear the whole  burden equitably. Y   . ,Y ���������  Another 'important feature is the fact that  neither ihe..City nor-the.-Municipalities, are now  empowered to enter into any such a joint scheme,  therefore it is imperative that some special powers  be granted. This must be secured from the Provincial Government, consequently we assert that  it is a wise course to make the Government a party  to the scheme so they may be in touch with every  need and detail, and be in a position to expidite  matters in the ways mentioned.       :^ l������ '-'��������� ~"r  THE WESTERN CALL  ������������������"���������'������������������~  ���������anjgnw'^|wi *  (  Ik  m  pf  ti  .*.**  WATCH!  **  WAIT!  aa  aa.  aa  **  **  -WWW'  ���������:">->������:  ^^���������������������������������������������������������������������������������^���������������������������������������������������������������������������������t*  SPEGIAL=Hand Roll  t  !  *  *  THE FAMOUS HAIDA BRAND made  fresh every day.

Tht  Earl, who Is an attache to the viceregal household, left Montreal early op  a Saturday and arrived at Rldeau.Hall  the following Monday night, thus  covering the one hundred and' ten odd  miles in three days. A Yukon dot;  driver in tbe pink ot condition would  hardly do better. This is not altogether  a record tor the peerage, however.

The new girl had been but three

been spent exclusively in studying the
domestic arts. As her mistress was
giving her instructions as to the
dinner she said: "Marie, don't forget

Copfederalion and British North American Act
(Continued from page 1) In every^ regard, outside of inter-pro-
opposition.      Party    allegiance    con-,j vincial relations, she was not to be
held accountable. The power of the
bishops soon grew so that the church
was able to completely control the political life of the Province.   One of the
strained part of them to silence:
others were bribed by promises or
office. There were, protests from isolated bodies of electors, but they went
unheeded.     The   one   danger   in   the'judges of the province gave a decision
eyes of many was the educational.
Make our schools secure and we will
go in for Confederation, was the cry
of many. Sir A. T. Gait satisfied
these people by getting a clause-inserted that their schools were to be
continued as they were, and that
should any complaint arise of invasion
of this provision, appeal could 'be
,made to the Federal authorities. In
the proposal of this clause, the Church
of Rome saw her opportunity. If, said
her representatives in th e conference,
we concede this, we must have equal
security for the schools of the minority in Ontario. The schools of the
Quebec minority were Public Schools,
the schools of the' Ontario minority
'were the schpols of a church, there
was no parallel between them; yet
the demand to place them on an equality was successful, and just because
the English-speaking people of Quebec
prayed for protection against the possibility of having their free,' open, riori-
sectarian schools changed into confessional schools, ,the price of that
protection was, that tbe people of Ontario should have fastened upon (hem
for ajl.s time, as far as the British
North America Act could do it/ the
Separate Schools that, had been in the
flpst placejmposed upon them by Quebec votes. They who speak of' the
framera ��� of ttlxe-Confederation Act an
statesmen, may take this as one instance of several,* of how their political idols were ��aade to kiss the Papal
rod.   * >      .-���-,��..
In the discussion of the proposals
for* Confederation^ one true voice was
raised. Col, .Haultain, member ,for
Peterboro, asked whether it was.jusi
to ignore the.aversion of the Protestants teBldlng iii Quebec to Confederal
tion,, because it would place thenx.ai
the mercy of an intolerant hierarchy.
A syllabus had just been issued By
the Pope; -and amongst other, things
which it condemned was the statement, "that1 "emigrants to' Catholic
countries should have fredem of worship." - Col. Haultaih pointed ont that
the Pope 'was the head of 'the controlling influence 'in Quebec, and
therefore * the fears-1 of the minority
we're not unreasonable, 'when called
upon to put ' themselves into the
power of the hierarchy, for to them,
that was what Confederation meant.
The Colonel was jeered by members
who had declined to commit themselves to the suport of Confederation
'Until' the' scheme- had. been submitted
to the Pope and had received his
approval. At the consecration of <&
church at St. Johns, Que., Cartier pre.
ste&ted A ��cppy of the, proposed ^consti-,
tution to Bishop Bourget, who considered it with his confreres, and finally
sent it tq tbe propagandas at Rome,
which returned It with' its'- enctorsation.
A constitution relating to British colonies had to reeeive the Papal stamp
before it went before the legislature!)
of the people affected. The constitution, withheld from the direct vote of
the people of Canada, was sent abroad
for a foreigner to consider.       -    -
Confederation was supported by the
leaders of the two parties in Quebec
and Ontario as a device to leave the
connection between Church and State
as it was, partially releasing. Ontario^
from the hold of the hierarchy while''
strengthening its grip on' Quebec.
Confederation prolonged the life of an
evil, the meddling of the Church of
Rome   with   thie?'"government  of  the
that the priests belonged to a spiritual
order and were therefore above the
law and beyond the jurisdiction of the
courts. There were decisions recogniz.
ing canon law, and buiial was refused
in tbe parish cemetery to the body
of a man because he had been a member of a society which had declared
for the principle of religious toleration.
Public men, made it their boast that
their obedience to the bishops was implicit and unreserved, and In pleading
before the electors, held this up as a
claim for support, rival candidates competing on the hustings in depreciating
each others loyalty to the Church.
The subserviency of the legislature to
the bishops was complete. The care
of lunatics, reformatories, refuges,
were handed over to buns and monks,
and free grants of money and land made
to the organizations of the Church.
They not only thus ceased to be public
institutions, acceptable to all classes,
but passed from the control of the legislature, for by virtue of their vows
and ordination, nuns and monks, progressing to be bf a heavenly class, resent the superintendence . of laymen.
A 'striking instance ot a legislature
calling itself British surrendering its
sovereign and exclusive right to make
laws, was,shown ,in, regard to a bill
'which the Government had brought
down- to amend the Education Act.
The Archbishop of Quebec sent for the
Premier and expressed his indignation
at its being introduced -without consulting him.- The bill was hastily drop,
ped, and the promise made, which is
still observed, that no measure .affecting education should be introduced
without being first submitted tp him
for his approval. The law was so
changed as to place education,-under
'he control of Jthe bishops. The council of public instruction was reconstructed so as to be composed of an
equal number of ecclesiastics and laymen. An ecclesiastic was given the
privilege to'send & substitute to any
meeting'that he could not attend, but
this -privilege was withheld from the
lay members.1 Consequently the-priests
are always in the majority. Thus the
educational system, by one fell swoop,
was given into tbe ��� hands of the
bishops, the legislature divesting itself
of what it defines in the Act es part
of tbe civil service, and handing over
to ecclesiastics the control of tbe expenditure -of>the public money for
schools and colleges. Additional instances  could   be  added  of the  sub-

serviency of the legislature, but perhaps the most striking of all was that
of the Mercier   government   in 'l$88."
Bi$hop Bourget invited, the general of
the Jesuits to renew his order in Canada, and in 1842 six Jesuit priests were
sent to Montreal to establish a college.
Whoever chooses to look over a parliamentary guide will see how many
members, both at Ottawa and Quebec,
have   received   their   training   ln   St.
Mary's College, and will realize how
deeply, through the men imbued with
its��� principles-  in  that chosen  seat,
Jesuitism influences our politics, and
shapes the destinies of the Dominion.
These newly-arrived Jesuits and their
successors described to their pupils as
an a<j$ ofcspoilation the confiscation of
the Jesuit Estates by King George at
th^time- of the conquest, and claimed
that" compensation ought to be made.
None of the scores of young men who
passed through their hands and rose
high  in  the political  world dared  to
country; an evji-.which ought to have  propose that the Jesuits  be compen-
been-dealt with,'in 1866, and which,
assuredly,-will-r^et%have to be dealt
with, for it is inconceivable that a tree
people will continue to submit to their
government being subject to the influence of any church; that cardinal,
archbishop, or ablegate has to be consulted when a question comes before
parliament in which the Church : of
Rome claims a voice. The right of
the people to have their affairs managed by a parliament and administered by an executive, free from clerical dictation, is self-apparent7 - In
copying the American plan of union,
the fr'amers of the Act of 1867 did not
base it upon equal rights. An article
forbidding the establishment of any
church in any of the provinces, would
have ensured peace and permanence.
The United States constitution carefully avoided the subject of negro slavery,.and doing so resulted in the greatest civil war that the world has ever
sated for the act of a British administration, until Mercier appeared: Visiting Rome; he made'a proposition to
the general of the Jesuits, and this
offer was afterwards ratified. by the
Pope. On .the .assembling of the legislature,' he introduced; a resolution to
pay out of the public funds the sum of
$460,00, as compensation to the Jesuits
for the estates the Crown had declared
public property over a century before.
The resolution  was adopted and the

that does'not mean that blouses will be

The lower part of the skirt, for example, may be entirely of the heavier

trimming motifs, may be fairly cobwebby in its fineness. Another idea
frequently developed shows very sheer

For the fiscal year ending 31st of  March', 1910, our" purchases from the  United States were ?223,591,809, their  purchases from us $113,150,778. For  the past decade the returns in round  figures show imports from the United  States of $1,600,000,000, exports to the  United States of .$800,000,000. In other  words seven million Canadians  purchased twice as much from the  United States as ninety' million people  in the United States purchased from  Canada.  As the result of some investigations  conducted by The Monetary Times  and subsequently verified and added  to by officers of the Canadian. Manufacturers' Association, it is known that  at the present time at least 200 United  States manufacturing companies are  operating branch factories in Canada,  representing an aggregate investment  of $226,000,000. For this influx of  capital, with all the benefits accruing  to the Dominion therefrom, we must  thank a tariff which made it worth  whlle-for those who hoped to,sell us  goods to come to this side of the line  to manufacture. Had that tariff not  been a protective one, those United  States manufacturers would probably  have enlarged their home factories  to take care of Canadian business  instead of building on this side, in  which case we would now be using  goods made from United States material with United States labor, instead of goods'made from Canadian  material with' Canadian 'labor.

Much to Be Done in Preserving Them  Per Future Use.  ��������� "Of all tbe civilized nations In tbe  northern' hemisphere, Canada is doing  the least to treat "the publie timber-  lands as a permanent asseti'*  ' This Is tbe conclusion, reached by'  Mr. H. R. MacMillan, one of tbe  Assistant Inspectors of Dominion  Forest Reserves, after a study of the  present status of forestry in Canadad,  particularly in regard to the forest  fire problem. This study is published  by the Forestry Branch of tbe Department of the * Interior as their  Bulletin No. 9 ("Forest Fires in Canada").  During 1909 the loss through forest  fires throughout Canada amounted to  $210,400, and 1909 was by no means a  bad year for fires. Tbe expease of  fire fighting and fire protection  amounted to $380,000.  There can be little doubt tbat tbis  total of fire loss is much too small.  In the first place, the value of tbe  timber destroyed is arbitrarily placed  at $1.00 per thousand feet, board  measure, while  tbe actual value  ot  the trees as they stand in the forest  would average much higher-than this.  No account is taken of. the damage  done to young growth, which, while  not now actually saleable, will in the  course of a few years have considerable value. "An enormous amount of  cordwood," to.quote the words of the  writer, "destroyed, in districts where  it now has a value, and,in.other dis;  tricts where it will soon be needed,  has heither been estimated nor  valued." Many fires have undoubtedly occurred in districts remote from  present settlement, and have destroyed large quantities of timber,  which ultimately would command a  ready market.  . Extracts are given from many  works dealing with exploration in  Canada to show how widespread and  disastrous have been the fires In former years���������even before exploration  was attempted, in many cases. '".  Treating the subject more' generally in the first part of tbe bulletin,  Mr. MacMillan arrives at the conclusion that seven times as much timber  has been destroyed by fire in Canada  as has ever been cut by lumbermen.  This view Is sustained by many lumbermen, some of whose estimates exceed even this.  The treatment of land cut or lumbered over and destined to' remain  permanently in forest, is one; of the  big problems of forestry on this con  tinent. This is also discussed, and  plans are outlined for the cutting of  the timber so as to reduce as much as  possible tbe danger from flre.r'bf all  kinds of land, cut-over timber land,  with chips, tree-tops and othtrL debris  scattered around; presents the greatest danger from 'Ire���������a fact tbat is  emphasised by many fires which occurred' eVen during the past snmmer  ln British Columbia aad Western Ontario/ ���������     "���������  Any who-care to look further into  this subject may obtain copies of the  bulletin mentioned above, free, of  charge, on application to R. H. Campbell, Superintendent of Forestry, Ottawa. 1M0-14B.  THE  DAILY   NEW  YEAR.A  Every day begins a new year. The  date on the calendar does not matter.  The earth starts every morning on its  year-long journey round tbe sun as  truly -as on tbe first day of January,  and each new dawn is therefore a  fresh opportunity to begin right. It is  for us to determine what the year shall  be. Tbe demand upon us Is not tbat  we succeed, but only tbat we try; .and  to try manfully every day and all ,djsy  long is inevitably to attain in the end  a supreme success. < rtt���������,  v^rX-*  We wish to ������all your attention; to our  ������  i  v.-'JAiih,.''t-  We have a Nice Line > of  Ladies' Misses and Childress Hats  ���������8  tt  Y8<������  * l:J.  o  ������  %i  "���������'a.

The origin of lace-making is unknown, |  though-there are many legends referring to its invention. Upon the whole,  writes W. L. Puxley in the "Young  Woman," it seems probable that the  idea ot lace first hailed from Greece  or the Ionian Islands, where many arts  flourished long before they, reached  Western Europe. The many stories  of the extreme antiquity of lace are  without foundation, at least' beyond  -the fifteenth century, for it seems improbable that the fabric we. should  now call lace was known before about  the-beginning of the fifteenth century,  when amongst the inventories of tbe >  great Italian families mention of cer-jWith chopped cut-meats  Chocolate Loaf.  .

At  first it was made from a drawing done  on parchment, upon ,wnlch thread was  placed, and the main pattern was outlined in this thread fastened to the  parchment,.when the lace was continued by means of buttonholing and  other stitches done entirely. with the  needle, and hence known now- as  "needle-point" lace; while tbe first  known patterns' of pillow lace were  those published at Venice in 1557 in a  small book called "Le Pombe." From  its very beginning the art of lace-  making flourished greatly in the two  centres of pictorial art, i.e., Flanders  and -North-Italy, -and -the marvelous  beauty of the designs and the execution of lace-making which are seen in  the early lace from these two centres  has never been surpassed. Some  church work, as for example the lace  kept in the cathedral of Granada, and  shown as early Spanish, is in reality  Flemish lace, and was probably brought  to Spain from Spanish Flanders. Our  own best native lace, that known as  "Honiton," is a copy of the Brussels  lace, taught by the followers of the  Duke of Alva when;, he came to England, and never, quite lost.in Devonshire; while tradition tells us that the  lace industry in the Midlands was  brought into this country by Queen  Catherine of'Aragon, who interested  herself in teaching the art of lace-  making to the people of the Midlands  when she had been sent to Luton to  await her divorce.  >*���������  One Thing at a Time  "How is the new filing system?

Boy���������"VvDhat is a white lie, Pop?"  Father���������"Most of the milk we buy,  my son."  GELATINE   DESSERTS.  Granulated gelatines are preferable  for general use, because they are easily  and accurately-measured. A box of  gelatine contains two ounces, or four  level tablespoonfuls, and -will"jelly  three and a half pints of liquid. Gelatine must always1 be soaked in cold  water until soft, in the proportion of a  fourth of a cupful of water to a tablespoonful of gelatine; then dissolve in  boiling liquid���������water, mill: or custard  ���������or by standing it in a pan of boiling  water, stirring until clear. The. cold  water softens and swells the gelatine  and renders it: readily soluble in the  hot liquid. Strain through "a fine  strainer after it is dissolved. Gelatine  should not be cooked, as much boiling  destroys its solidifying property.  Whenever a cupful is mentioned,1 a  standard measuring cup, holding half  a pint, is meant. Spoon measurements  are always level. ',,  Molds must be rinsed in cold water,  then drained, just before pouring in  jelly. Chill on ice. To remove the  jelly;   dip   the   mold   quickly   in   hot  French Charlotte.  Soak a tablespoonful of graulated  gelatine in one-fourth cupful cold  water, dissolve in one-fourth cupful  boiling milk, add one cupful sugar, stir  until'dissolved, strain.and cool. Whip  a pint of heavy cream until stiff, add  gelatine', mixture by the spoonful, th en  fold in six macaroons crumbled fine,  two tablespoonfuls each of candied  cherries and candied pineapple,' and  one cupful chopped blanched almonds*  toasted in the oven/until, delicately'  browned. "-Flavor^with vanilla. Tutn  into a mold and chill. Serve with  lady.fingers or. angel cake. Simply  made, but very rich.  Marshmallow Pudding.  Soak a tablespoonful of granulated  gelajtine in a fourthHsf, a cupfti^of cold  water, disolve in three-fourths cupful  boiling water, and add one .cupful of  sugar. Stir until dissolved, strain and  cool. Beat whites of four eggs until  stiff, add gelatine mixture by tho  spoonful, one cupful heavy cream whip-  ped until stiff and vanilla to flavor.  Divide mixture Into two parts. Tint  one part pink with red color, which  comes in package of gelatine, and add  one-half cupful cherries cut fine.  Flavor remaining part with orange,  lemon'or bitter' almond extract, and  add one-half cupful candided cherries  cut fine. Flavor remaining part with  orange, lemon or bitter almond extract, and add twelve marshmallpws  cut into dice. Put into a mold having.  pink layer underneath, arid sprinkle  one-half cupful English walnuts cut  into pieces between layers. Chill, un-  mold. and garnish with one cupful of  heavy cream beaten until stiff, sweetened with one-third cupful sugar and  flavored with vanilla, An7 attractive  and delicious dessert.  Chocolate Jelly.  Soak one tablesponful; granulated,  gelatine in one-fourth cupful cold water. Melt a square of unsweetened  chocolate in the top of a double boiler,  add two-thirds cupful of sugar and.two  cupfuls milk. When .hot, add the  soaked gelatine and stir until it is  dissolved. Strain, cool and flavor with  vanilla. Turn into a mold, chill and  serve with plain or whipped cream.  This is an inexpensive and healthful  dessert, of which the little ones are  usually very fond.  To readily change this into the popular Plum Pudding Jelly, add half a  teaspoonful of cinnamon and an eighth  teaspoonful of cloves. Soak one cupful seeded, raisins, one-half, cupful currants and one-fourth cupful sliced citron in hot water to cover for ten minutes, drain and add to gelatine mixture  when it commences to harden. Turn  Into one large or several small molds.  Serve with whipped cream.

While he  was waiting to be shown to the sick  room he fell to talking to the little  girl of the house. *  "It is very gratifying to Know that  your mother thought of me in her  illness," said he. "Is your minister out  of town?"  "Oh, no," answered the child, in a  matter-of-fact tone. "He's home; only  we -thought It might be something  contagious, and we didn't want to take  any .risks."
