 Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME III  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British, Columbia, MAY  26, 1911.  Old System Best  Board of Control System of Municipal Government, Now in Force Here Over a Year, is Not  Saticfactory Claim the Ward Politicians-  Business Men and Good Citizens Generally  Approve of It���������Canadian Teachers Unexcelled  Say British Experts���������Vaccination for All is  the Order���������Eighteen-hour Day the Limit  Thinks Doctor.  (From Our Own Correspondent.)  Mpntreal, May J7th ���������The Board of Control,  or Galveston plan of commission g^yernment for  cities as it is called in the United States'-yhere it  originated, is a failure in so' far as Montreal is  concerned, according to a band of ex-aldermen,  would-be contractors, ward heelers and others  who have formed themselves1 into an organization  whose aim is to recapture the city hall for the  old form of aldermanic patronage1 arid plunder  carried on so successfully until last year under the  old system of civic government by [ aldermanic  committees. y"'  The  commissioners  have held'the  reins of  office for slightly over a year now.   Anyone who  Ltakes the trouble to compare, in ever so casual a  Tmanner,.the results which have been achieved in  ithat short year in ,the way of civic< improvement.  with the results which were promised but which  [were never forthcoming during the many years of  aldermanic sway, will agree that the new system,  \instead of being a failure as1 claimed, has been a  great success.   There have been shortcomings, of  [course, but all around it may be safely said that  never before has the city's money and energy.  |been put to better use than during the last twelve  [months.   When the oBard of Control was elected.  lthe number of aldermen was cut down, from two  1 to one for each ward.   This left a few gentlemen  [jat home who had had a taste of political life, and  lankered for more.   Up to the present they have  jeen kept quiet, but now, it appears, they are  {getting together and intend to make a concerted  effort to obtain control of the municipal purse  strings once more.  "Disbelieve it, if you wish;' 'remarked an,  informant, "but it is a fact.  The proposition is to  isaue a petition which the people will be asked to  Sign praying for a referendum on the question.  -The argument is that tbe oBard of Control is no$,  Hving satisfactory results, and they contend that  referendum wauid put tlie board out of exist-  hoce., L    " -_; V  "Behind thia movement are a number of the  members'of the old aldermanic regime "and certain  jontractors who complain that the controllers are  lot firing them a fair -*0*-  "This petition is actually in preparation.  |Tnless the plans of the promoters miscarry, how-  Wer, the petition will be launched on the public  i the near future with a beating of drums and  ie tonnd of trumpets.  Watch for developments.''  COWTKUIP OM Ni*T J������AOT-U*W!Pi EtfVATO.*  *.0. W3CWCT������0UfUW.  North Vancouver ia beginning to feel the press-  * of tho heel of her master, the B. C. Eiectric  ���������vaiiWay Co., and judging from reports, it is not  |oudueive to harmony-between. tbe_ corporation^  ad the company. J  It aeems that the Company in its usual arbi-  manner changed a route, the council.pro*  _���������^4 and received a veiled threat in reply to tha  fffect tbat if they did not behave that the.com-  lany would return to the old half-hour schedule  Ind the public convenience could go hang.  It looks as if North Vancouver had ita bands  aU to deal with the subtle move* of this un-  Krupulous company.  trans TO clow POWH.  iTfce mines and smelters of the Boundary and  lootehay country ttate that shortly they will be'  hmpette* to close downvfor want of fuel, caused  ly^ht Crow's Nest coal strike.  (*fhis will be a serious loss to the country, and  n usual the ones to suffer most severaly will be  ie workers.   Surely we are sufficiently enlight-  jied to adjudicate differences by arbitration in-  lead of by war, actual or industrial.   Strikes,  jke wars, are an economic waste and should be  loided.  CHINA A REPUBLIC.  According to despatches from China it is the  srpose of the revolutionists to establish .a repub-  f in that ancient empire. It is hard for the  jscidental mind to conceive of an Oriental repub-  s, yet such is the usual course���������a despotic mon-  %hj is usually supplanted by a republic. As  ktaneejjv#e] have/France, Portugal, Mexico and  [>ain on the .Verge of ity  |We are of the opinion,   though,   that" China  [raid find it rather diffictdt to organize a repub-  K in fact it would soon degenerate-into a more  solute despotism than as at present exists.  The  c of the Chinese population are of the coolie.  8, who are ignorant and subservient, and have  [en so for millenniums, and it is absurd to imag-  that they are capable bf complete self-govern-  [nt, in fact those who are heading the revolu-  [h have no idea that they should exercise such  privilege, but hope simply to secure the reins*  power, and thus control the destiny^ of that  leat nation,  [t will. be interesting to watch this, the latest  ick, on the Manchu dynasty.  FIRE DEPARTMENT TO  BE INVESTIGATED  Mayor and Aid. Enright Defend Chief and Fire Department.���������Council Overrule Mayor's Arbitrary  Action.  The   following   resolution,   moved   by   Aid.  ' Stevens, was passed at   last   Monday's   council  meeting:  "That the fire and police committee be appointed under the powers granted in section 197 of the  city charter to thoroughly investigate the administration of the fire department, with-full power  to .summon witnesses and examine under oath  such witnesses on all matters pertaining to the  department, its management, system of drill and  promotion; also as to,the efficiency .of the apparatus, its cost in comparison with other makes  and all such other matters as may, in the opinion  of the committee, be necessary to secure a full and  impartial investigation."  This action was taken as a result of the statements made in these columns during-the past few  weeks. The question first arose in the Council of  May 1st, 1911, when Aid. Stevens objected  to accepting a tender of Seagraves & Co. for an  aerial truck for $17,000, which was $6,000 higher  than the Ctancliff tender; he also objected to purchasing a $4,300 touring car for the chief, in view  of the fact that the chief had received a new car  only-last June, and that it was used for private  purpose in taking long trips around the country  in place of being used, exclusively for civic purposes. At the meeting when these matters were .  brought up, the Mayor refused to allow further  ���������discussion, and it was subsequent to that time that  Aid. Stevens, as editor of the Western Call, discussed the question in these columnar  Last Thursday Aid. Enright attacked the editor  of this journal for publishing these articles, char-  ' acterizing them as ^knocking" the city rind willing the editor a "cur," a "yellow dog" and ������  few other choice appellations peculiar to the vo*-  cabulary of the chairman of tha fire and police  committee.  On Monday last, when Aid. Stevens moved a  . resolution for a special committee to investigate  the fire department; the Mayor left the chair and  made a vigorous attack upon the Western Call,  its editor, and we believe he intended to include  the-whole staff, machinery,' etc.   He1 said that the  articles had been written and "cast forth as a fly  to catch some unsuspecting person and that Aid.  Ramsay had 'rose and fell' upon it." He did not  toy whether, when Aid. Ramsay "rose and fell,"  if anyone got hurt, but we presume he intended  to infer that the anxiety which he and Aid. Enright were being occasioned was the result and  one which he deplored.  The world came out Tuesday with the following  headlines: <  "Stevens' Scalp Being Sought by the Council"  ���������that is a "World" fact���������which someone has  said is a lie and a half. When the Mayor called  Aid. Stevens to order the Council, on motion of  Aid. Kirkpatrick and Aid. Crowe, promptly overruled the order -and asked Aid. Stevens to proceed.  The public can judge by this action if the Council  are "after Stevens' scalp." The only persons affected with "scalpittes" are Aid. Enright and the  Mayor, who are very anxious tp block anything  approaching an investigation on fair and impartial basis.  The World further states in that report: "Representative of Ward V must substantiate or retract charges made." This is contrary to fact.  ' This was the recommendation of the fire and police committee report, but wm struck out at the  Council meeting and* Aid. Stevens' motion for an  investigation under oath was carried.  When the question was up for discussion on  Monday it was,dearly evident that every possible  ' .effort wonld be made by the Mayor to block the  Jfo&atigation. 7 He;'refused to permit any remarks  /Which wonld reflect on, the: department, hut allowed the wildest possible refha^ks on the other'  side.   Why the Mayor is so anxious,to avoid an  investigation is beyond the comprehension of the  average citizen.   There has been ample evidence  placed before the Council to warrant the most exhaustive enquiry, and the whole Council are anxious., to have the matter probed, but the Mayor opposes.   Jt, is, of course, as well-known fact that  bis worship is exceptionally favorable to the.chief  and is presumably allowing his personal feelings  WAfONi WHY *X BCVliTOATlOJ!  W"������B������������W W ^������������������Jw     ~^rr*\9      ���������T^^'pPW*  1. Because it is not }n the interest of  tbe city that its fire chief should have expensive touring cars for p^mtewte. TbAt  said car has been extensively Ssed for  trips to,points outside tbe city, such as  foundry Bay, New Westminster lacrosse  matches, etc. ,  2. That the city paid $17,000 to. Seagraves & Co. for an<faerial truck" which,  according to the statement" of Aid. Enright, chairman of the fire and police committee, was "The first they (Stagraves)  had made and was an experiment."  ��������� 3. That $17,000 is too high a price to  pay for Seagraves or any othcr^company  to experiment w.ith.  4. That undue partiality was shown  Seagraves & Co.  .     THAT QUEBEC LAW.  Mr. Justice Riddel has the following to say regarding the decision.of Mr. Justice L&urendean  in the "Herbert" marriage case. It will be remembered that the Quebec Judge stated that because they were not married by a Roman Catholic  priest that therefore they were not married.  Mr. Justice Riddell says:  ''Whatever," he added, ���������'the Legislature says  is a marriage is a marriage, and no Church, Roman Catholic or any other, has anything whatever  to do with it.. No Church, whatever it may pretend, lias any right whatever to say that a marriage, celebrated according to the law is not valid.  Make' no mistake ;;about that. No Church can  change the law of the land in any particular. A  marriage is valid or invalid, not because the  Church says ? so, but because the Legislature  says so." -y - . YY 7.7-7.Y''  This stateemnt coming from such an eminent  authority will be welcome to all lovers of justice  and freedom. It goes to show that we still have  some judges who have not as yet capitulated to  the Roman heirarchy. The scandal of Justice  Laurendean's decision has stirred the eountry  deeply and roused the citizens to the need of  guarding our national institutions from the control of bigots.  5. That the city's auto expert, King,  had been^ frequently used by the Seagraves people to demonstrate their apparatus in other cities, at the same time  he, King, drawing $135 per-mouth from  the city.  -6. - That- we_ storcd,_for_Seagraves_ Jfc.  Co., an auto fire truck at No, 2 Fire Jl&ll  for a month, pending its being adjusted  prior to delivery to New Westminster.  7. That the auto expert, King, received a gold watch from Seagraves, or  their agent, "for faithful services?*  8. That the auto expert, under pay by  this city, was given a month's trip east  at the expense of the Seaffraves Co. without permission of city.  9. That the system of promotion in  vogue in the department is unfair.  10. That the $17,000 aerial truck is  practically a failure, as it has been out of  commission the greater portion of this  vear.  PROVINCIAL JAIL.  We note with great satisfaction that a Provincial Jail is to be built in Burnaby. It ia very  badly needed.  A recent visit to the city jail revealed a condition which should not be tolerated in any civilized  country. Our present jail, that portion where the  prisoners are kept, is below the ground level and  without proper drainage. It is small and crowded.  It has poor ventilation and light. The men sleep  two in a cell, each cell being a cage of iron bars.  There are two tiers of these cells one above the  other. When these are filled, which is nearly  every night, a large room with cement floors is  used, in which sometimes 30 or 40; men are herded.  Cells for violent prisoners are merely vaults,  with very little ventilation, underground.  It is a common habit to blame the police for  these conditions. This is wrong. The chief and  his whole jail staff have been urging for better  accommodations for years. .  The blame must be placed iyi the Police Commission and the Council. The Commission administer the police affairs, t he Council supply the  funds. These two bodies should get together and  provide for this need instead of simply leaving  it to the other party to do. Something must be  done, and the sooner the better. y _    ____.  ,^  No. 3  5?  7SF-  Cigarettes  There is a law which makes it an indictable offense to sell boys under 16 years of age cigarettes.  It is also compulsory on the part'of the boy to tell  where he got his supplies.  Cigarette-smoking among young boys is very  prevalent and we believe tlie habit is growing.  No one questions the danger in the use of cigarettes by young boys' and the growing tendency to  their n se should be checked. \  Parents could greatly assist the authorities by  making their boys tell where they got them and  then passing the information on tothe authorities,  and in addition to this efforts should be made to  convict those who sell them. It is a dangerous  aud pernicious practice. >  LESS SALOONS���������LESS POLICE.  "The marked decrease in crime when the number of saloons is cut down is shown in the city of  Levis, Que. In a recent conversation with Mr. P.  G. Roy, secretary of the Board of Trade, and an  ardent temperance advocate, he stated that since  the, number of saloons had been cut from 25 to6  the decrease in arrests had dropped from about  20 to 25 per month to from 2 to 5. So marked  is the improvement that the people are quite satisfied with the change and would not return to old  conditions. No less than five counties surrounding Levis have done away with all licenses."���������  Canadian Municipal Journal.  SUCCESS OF POLICE DOGS.  According to the report of the Chief Constable  of Nottingham, just issued, the police dogs which  ftere recently introduced have been a great success. "The dog," the report states, "is a distinct  acquisition to the force, particularly in connection with the night patrolling of outside districts.  One dog has already proved himself most useful  in finding persons secreted in out-of-way places,  and has followed and stopped others at some distance away whom the* police were desirous of overtaking, but would have failed to get into touch  with had they been without the dog's assistance?'  THE TOEEI11 AKD TRBXIt iioTWmOW.  (Lumberman) ��������� >  In a speech in the far West hot long ago Colonel  Roosevelt is reported-to have said this: "One  of your great assets is your forests. If you pes-'  mit the fdr&ts to be destroyed you will be acting  just as foolishly as a farmer who would let his  barn burn down without trying to save it. . And  what would you think of a farmer whose barn,  was on fire and who did not want to spend any  money to put it outf That would not be merely  folly���������it would be niggardly folly."  Naturally, to guard forests against the ravagfta  of fires there must be protection, and, it is equally  obvious, protection of the necessary kind costf  money. Not to provide such protection is not  alone "niggardly folly";-it ia contributory negligence of the grossest sort���������it is in a way defenseless < destruction of. anets. Further on Colonel >-  Roosevelt "also admonished hi* hearers to sale  their forests "beeause," as he added, "you. will  need them in your business, became your childran  wiH need them ia theirs.?       -  This,, ot course, relates solely to proteettoo '  against fires; it is not an injunction to suspend .  -cutting forests to any extent needful-to meet tbe -  legitimate requirements of the country. A wide  diversity of means whereby the forests might be  conserved has bts%- suggested in the promiscuous  discussion of thisjsubjeet'in recent yean, none  equal in sanity and directness of practical purpose to that of protection against fire. But for  thin arch enemy Tbf the trees in the past there  probably today would be small, if any, occasion  for fear, warranted or' unwarranted, of any impending "wood famine." Regarding the latter;  the exact basis of existing conditions while more  or less problematical affords, if not certainty, a  fairly conclusive presumption of serious impend'  ing exhaustion and the need incidentally of any  practicable means of conservation. Individual  holders of forests, on account of their constantly  increasing value, are under no necessity of ont*  side pressure, of sentiment or of compulsion, ade-'  quately to protect and conserve them in any  practicable manner.  FOOLS AUD TREZB FOLLY.  .  We received a letter this week from a fool or  a madman, we know not which. The letter states,  "Misfortune and bad luck will follow whoever  has possession of this letter and does not give it  publicity." It then proceeds with a list of curses  which will fall on those Who fail to do certain  things. It relates the awful ill-luck which has  followed others who refused to publish it; in fact,  the whole letter is evidently the excrescence of  some demented mind.  As far as we are concerned we will simply commit it to the flame, and thus break "the link ia  the chain," but unfortunately these letters are  evidently being sent broadcast throughout the  land and many timid souls will be greatly perturbed by them. To such we would say, pay no attention to them, be sure of one thing, which is,  that the person who concocted the letter is nothing  worse than a harmless fool or idiot, and as such  his communication should be treated.  It would-be a good thing for both the public  and the instigator of the letter if ita writer could  be apprehended and confined to either the asylum  or the penitentiary, but the letter is unsigned and  incapable of detection.  We are sorry that owing to lack of space  two articles by J.2W. Whitely and D. Spencer  are crowded out  They will appear in nextiaaue. THE WESTERN CALL ���������  LAKE-HEAD  ELEVATORS.  Plans for tbe construction of gigantic grain elevators at West Fort William, Ontario, on Lake Superior, have  been published by the Grand Trunk  Pacific Railway'Company. The scheme  includes three big piers for six elevators, each of ten million bushels capacity. Two thousand four hundred cars  a day will be handled. When navigation opens more grain will be stored  at the head of the Great Lakes for  shipment'than ever before. On March  24th the G. T. P. gave out contracts  for 117,000,000 worth of work in Western Canada.  The Canadian Pacific Railway are  sending out on their own steamers  about 1,500 emigrants each week, and  a report received from Montreal headquarters stateB that it begins to look  as though the emigration figures for  this year will almost double those of  ilast year.  Training Future Citizens.  Is the Canadian child "forward"?  Members of the commission of Eng-  . lish educational experts who are visiting Canada in the interests of education,  answer  the  question  with  an  emphatic negative.  "That is to say," said one of the  commissioners, "the children are not  'forward* in the sense of the word,  which is generally interpreted as rude-  .ness. On the other hand, they are  bright, and show an absolute absence  of self-consciousness which is really  delightful. Jt indicates an- individuality and an alertness which will make  them good, bright, self-reliant citizens  ot the future. It also speaks well for  the system of-instruction given in, the  schools, and is a testimonial of the  careful work of the teacher,' whose  salary is not commensurate with the  efforts that both he and she must  have made in order to obtain such  results..  .  The commission, which is composed  of leading British educationalists, is  making a tour of the Dominion with a  view to reporting on the school system here.  Vaccination for All.  General compulsory vaccination has  been ordered by the Provincial Board  of Health of the Province of Quebec  This will mean not only vaccinatio!  for those who have never been vai  ciliated, but re-vaccination for thos;  who have not been vaccinated for th  last seven years.  This stringent step has been adopt  ed in view of the discovery that case:  had  been   reported   in    more    than  twenty counties.  Moreover, the attention of the  board has been called to the fact that  as lumbermen returned from . the  bush, inspectors found many cases of  smallpox.  Dr. E. Pelletier, secretary of the  Provincial Board of Health, declares  that it is time to stamp out the contagion before it has become too general. "We are surrounded by smallpox," said he. Ontario is infested  and the neighboring states are also  on the verge of an epidemic.  We have discovered lately that  hundreds of cases have been shielded,  even by physicians, sometimes through  ignorance, and. sometimes quite deliL  erately. This is the explanation o'  the;. numerous outbreaks reported  from over twenty counties of the  province.  A Long Day's Work;  Eighteen hours of work out of twenty-four should be the limit for any  man, in any class of work, not only on  account of muscular' exertion and failing strength, but also because bf failing brain power, the man losing his  capacity to appreciate his surroundings and to  direct    his    operations.}  Such is the substance of the opinion  given  by Dr.  Francois de Martigny  chief surgeon of the Hotel Dieu, wlr  in the case of   Dame   L.   Laverdur-  against the Canadian Northern claim  ing $8,000 for^the death of her hu.  band.  Brouillette was killed in a fell  about ten in the morning after having  been at work since seven o'clock of  die. previous morning, having suspend-  3d work only for meal hours/and having  worked   through   day  and   night.  The  contention of  the  plaintiff  was  hat the company .had'no right to allow men to work during   such   long  nours.  Dr. de Martiany was called by the  laintiifs counsel to state what was  .he limit of a man's endurance, and  laced the limit of eighteen hours of  ontinual muscle or brain work, reasonable time being allowed for meals.  HOOKWORM  IN CANADA.  Health Ofticer Whitlaw says that  there is danger' of the negro immigrants from the southern states bringing the hookworm into Canada. This  disease was brought into the southern  states by the negroes from Africa and  some time ago John D. Rockefeller  gave $1,000,000 to combat it; It grows  to alarming proportions in humid climates, and while Dr. Whitlaw - says  the cold northern country will prevent  its spreading to any serious degree,  che danger nevertheless exists with  the coming of the negro. Hon. Frank  ./liver, Aiiuibler of the Interior, will  iiave his attention called to the matter.  EXPLOSIVE SOCKS.  That various citizenB throughout the  country may be the unsuspecting wearers of gun cotton neckties and explosive socks liable to blow up at any moment, is the startling possibility just  brought to light here. Nor is the feminine .sex immune from the danger  since petticoats may likewise*ibe articles o< destruction. This unsuspected roTr1it'?n of aital1"* 'las bfpn cU������-  covered through a local protest re*  cently filed against the manufacture of  artificial silk from cellulose, in which  it appears that thfere ls a. possibility  that almost any article of wearing apparel made to imitate real silk may  actually be explosive. There are several processes it appears according u������  ,ue protest by which, artificial silk is  roduced from cellulose. One pio-  cess employs nitro cellulose which is  really nothing more than soluble gun  _otton. From it the threads to be  ether or alcohol. After the thread has  used in manufacturing are drawn in  been drawn and is ready for wearing  it is supposed to be denitrated. If it  is, it is entirely safe, if it is riot, it may  be, exceedingly dangerous, for it then  remains nothing less than gun cotton'  spun into a fabric. So in the future it  may be worth while' to, refrain from  stamping the "near silk" clad fott, or  yanking viciously at the cravat, of the  same'material, even though no casualties from explosive, garments have yet  been reported.  LIGHT AS A  BARRIER TO  EELS.  Some time ago the Danish government began, under the direction of its  biological station at Copenhagen, an  interesting effort to aid the fishermen  of the Baltic by preventing the migration of. eels from that see into the  ocean. The means employed is a barrier of light, formed by placing fifty  electric lamps along a submerged  cable between the island of Fano and  the coast of Funen. The effectiveness  of such a barrier depends upon the  fact tbat the.eels migrate only during  the.dark hours. Accordingly, as soon  as darkness begins, in the season of  migration, the lamps are illuminated,  and thus a wall of light is interposed  from which the eels recoil. A similar  principle is said to have been employed from time immemorial by fishermen, on certain parts of the coast of  Italy.  Toronto  University  has  4,100  students in attendance.  The Agent-General for New South  Wales despatched over 300 emigrants  on the steamship Norseman, which  left London last week. The majority  of passengers "were women and chil-  i dren who have been nominated for  reduced fares.    -  ^..^.���������;..;^j..j^j..X^;..j..;������.;^j^..r.^M.;..j..;,.^.j..;,.;..;.   aaa^..^********************  % ALL WORK CALLED FOR AND DELIVERED. %  I       MISS IDA FLINT       I,  * T   I  {.

He would never, move a  tree after planting, as he believed  that the natural roots were better  than forcing the tree to grow new  ones,  Mr. J. T.

Because the municipal hall has now  become crowded, Mr. G. H. Peake, the  recently appointed comptroller, will  move into a temporary building now  being erected at the front of the hall  when this is completed. Work on its  construction was begun yesterday.  Its cost is not estimated, to exceed  $150. Work will shortly' be commenced on the erection' of ��������� the new  hall.  On Monday evening the Mountain  View baseball t������nm will meet a team  from South Hill on the Hall grounds.  The game will be particularly interest- preacher,  ing In view of the early formation of a  baseball league in South Vancouver.'  So rapidly is the population increasing in South Vancouver that the large  school at South Hill is no longer able  to take in all its scholars at once, and  some ot the junior classes have to be  put oii half session pending the erection of more accommodation. We  were remarking about the building  activity last week, but as a matter of  fact they can't build houses fast  enough for the new inhabitants.  When we remember the danger of  bush fires in South Vancouver last  year that would have been very serious on several occasions if it bad  not been for the untiring energy of  Mr. Bramwell, of Second street, aided  by many o������ the inhabitants, we are  glad to hear that tenders have been  called for a site for a fire hall, and we  hope no delay will be allowed in this  matter, as with the increased population it is a grave necessity to have  proper aid near in case of emergency.  We hear tenders are called for a  bite for a rock crushing plant, so we  hope Bome good substantial roads will  be made in the near future.  We are very glad to be able to announce that Mrs. Greenslade has returned'home after her serious operation in the General Hospital.

Add oil and vinegar or lemon  juice alternately, stirring or beating  constantly, until two tablespoonfuls  each of vinegar and lemon juice and  one and one-half'cupfuls of olive oil  have been used. If the oil is added too  rapidly the dressing will have a  curdled appearance. A smooth consistency may be restored by taking the  yolk of another egg and adding the  curdled mixture slowly to it.

He wore no  overcoat, and the icy wind twisted his  threadbare clothes about his shrivelled  body.  "Wind," he demanded, whimsically,  "whar wuz you dis time last July?"  The mother of the girl baby, herself  named Rachel, frankly told her husband that she was tired of the good  old names borne by most of the feminine members of the family, and she  would like to give the little "girl a  name entirely different. Then she  wrote on a slip of paper.'Eugenie," and  asked her husband if he didn't think'  that waB a pretty name, o  The father studied the name for a  moment and then Bald:  "Veil, call her Youaheenie,    but    1  don't .see vat you gain by it."  There was company at dinner, and  father was carving his prettiest on a  fine roast. Suddenly, though, the knife  struck a skewer, made a sliding upward motion, and came out on top.  Father attempted to cover his real  feelings with insipid jests about the  indigestibility of roasted hard wood,  the inadvisability of a butcher running a w Dod yard, and the like. There,  was an embarrassing silence. Willie  took advantage of it.  "Cook has burned her nose orful," he  announced.  "Too bad," muttered father, still  wrestling with the roast. "H(ow did  she do it?"  "Tryin' to pull them skewers out  with her teeth!"  Suitor���������"If you refuse me I shall  never love another."

The New York Board of Health has  recently thrown open to public inspection the records of bacteriological examinations of milk on file in its labor  atories.   This action is greatly to the  interest of the public health,   as   it  enables users of milk to judge of what  they are buying and stimulates dealers : to furnish as pure an article as  possible, declares Dr. Charles E. North  in  The  Evening   Post    (New   York,  April 14th).    Dr.  North, who is  engaged in public health: work, begins  by reminding his readers that the tiny  plants called -bacteria find in milk unusually favorable conditions for rapid  multiplication.    Some of these plants  are poisonous, such as those causing  -yphoid fever, diphtheria, tuberculosis,  scarlet fever, and infants' diarrheas,  ind the fact that these may occur ir.  insanitary milk is the real reason foi  he agitation going on throughout the  country in favor of pure milk supplies.  He continues:'  /'Bacteria of most kinds of milk can  *eadily be counted by mixing a few  Irops of milk with a warm beef-juice  felly which then  cools and hardens  olding each germ fast in its place,  n a few days the location of eacr  rem can be seen with the naked eye  or the  reason  that  each surrounds  limself with many"������������������ thousands' of de  .cendahts,  forming' a  'colony'  Avhich  ippears as a white 'dot the size of/a  ;>i'nhead.   TlieBe dots can be'counted,  nd this kind of counting is the bsEsis  of the statements often seen that milk  :ontaifis so many hundreds or so" many  housands or bacteria.   About twenty  lrops of milk, or about one-third of a  ;easpoonful  equaling a unit   in' the  aetric system called one cubic'caiti-  ieter; is the quantity of milk regular  y used by laboratories for'the enumeration-of bacteria.' Oiir city Department^ of Health has for a long time  =Teeh"takihg-samp.les-of-milk^from^aii  f the large milk dealers for the'pur;  ose of making" these examinations,  ut Until recently  the   results   have  een  kept  privately  for ��������� the "depart-  ient'8 own informatibn;'and persons  mtside  of" the departtneiit have not  ad access to them.-' I  "The important and startling action  .vhich but Health Department has now  reh is to throw the results''of these  ���������aborafory examinations open to the  ��������� ublic.    Any   milk   consumer  in   the  ity Who" is sufficiently interested ir  the purity of the milk delivered at his  ii.   iu   inquire   may   find  out  just  what the character of his milk supply  is by inspecting the reports of the  aboratory examinations on file at t!;<;  eaith Department office.    There he  /ill see the list of dealers selling milk  i the city, and opposite each name  \e numbers of bacteria found in his  lilk.   These numbers give each milk  rating, so thai it is possible to ot-  erve which milk  is the  purest,  i.e  ause the bacteria, are   fewest,   and  ^hich. the most impure, because the  acteria are most numerous.  "Because bacteria and dirt travel to-  ether,   and   because   bacteria   grow  apidly in milk not properly iced, the  roups of medical men who supervise  ie production of the 'certified' milks  ave established standards    for    the  umbers  of bacteria,    believing    the  umbers to'be an index of the care  aken in matters  of cleanliness  and  efrigeration.    .    .    .    It is greatly to  ae interests of "public-health that the  eople should  learn  to^ judge of the  haracter of  milk  by its  laboratory  nalysis.    The   milk   consumer   need  6 longer be in ignorance as to which  lilk is pure and which impure.   The  umulation is directly applied to the  lilk dealers hy the rating which they  2ceive in the list to put into opera-  -<n the sanitary methods which alone  HI  prevent  large  numbers  of  bac-  7..

DeVaz  220 Broadway, W  There was a  large attendance    at  the Orange Hall on Sunday afternoon  to hear Rev. John' Simpson deliver his  address on the subject of "Romanism  and the Nations."     Prof.   B.   Odium,  M.A., acted'as chairman and in introducing the speaker took occasion   to  refer-to the teachings or the Orange  Asosciation,  pointing   out   that   the  order taught. the  principles    of    religious and civil liberty, and aimed to  have its members better citizens of  the community in  which they  lived  and' the country to which    they    belonged.    Mr. .Simpson in opening his  address took occasion to refer to the  letter of Mr." J. W. Whiteley in Friday's Province, saying it was a complete answer to the attempted explanation of the '.'Ne Temere" decree by  Father McCuIlough.   He also referred  to the letter" appearing in  Sunday's  Advertiser' and    signed    by   Father  Dowd.    The. letter was its own condemnation.   There was no argument  in It:   It was simply a glorification of  the Roman (Catholic Church    and    a  wholesale condemnation of Protestant-  | ism. ' No sensible man would pay any  j attention  to  it.    In  discussing    the  'subject oi the afternoon, Mr..Simpson  tmade the stateinent   that    wherever  ; Protestantisn} has, been a vital, force  ; in the life dt a nation, that nation has  aidvanced intellectually,, commercially,  riiorally and ^spiritually.

Prinee  of'Orange, came over and established  civil and religious liberty for the  KnglUu people, the land again prospered, and that prosperity baa eon-  timed down to the present day. Tbft  speaker ������lao compared the north ������ud  south of Ireland, following the progress of the north, where Protestant-  Ism flourishes, and comparing It with  tht Roman Catholic south, where Mr.  Michael McCarthy in hit hook.  "Priests ������nd Religion in Ireland."  aayt tbat priestcraft it responsible for  the misery and discontent found  amongst the people. At Mr. McCarthy, was born and brought up a  Roman Catholic, ht probably knew  what ht was talking about The  speaker also-referred to Spain, Italy,  Portugal aad France. Italy had freed  herself from tht temporal power of,  tht Pope, and llnce thftt time her progress has been remarktble. France,  once ��������� Roman Catholic country, haa  now 30,000 atheists. Rome had been  unable to stem the tide of rationalism.  Portugal bad broken loose from clerical control, and the people bad made  an entire separation of church and  state. 8paln bad once held the proud  position of being one ot the foremost  countries of the world, but where was  the today? Roman Catholicism,  through forcing the nation Into religious wars, and by the intolerant  attitude which she assumed towards  progressive legislation, had left 8paln  with only a shred of her former greatness. Castelar. the great Spanish  tUtesman of his time, said: "There  |s,npt a' single progressive principle  that 'has not been cursed by the  Papacy." But there were even signs In  8paln that the people were going to  cast off the Incubus of clericalism,  and do as the other Roman Catholic  countries had done���������have an entire  separation of church and state.
