 7&  I .  -ARE YOU ON OUR LlsT?  NO ! WHY ?  VOLUME II  PLEA FOR LAW ID ORDER     SINS OF A CITY  Acordirig to the "Hope News" the town of  Hope is growing very rapidly in every direction,  social, industrial and criminal.    The News says:  "It will be well understood when we state in  a general way that from the very nature of things  many undesirable, citizens are among those to  flock into a new and promising city. It is also  far from surprising that a place where hundreds,  or later on thousands, of miners, railroad builders, packers, tearajsters, .'prospectors, surveyors  and all manner -of men with money congregate,  that there will be all kinds of trouble occasionally, unless there are men whose business it is  to suppress the riotous and unlawful tendencies  of.the trouble-makers.     - , ' " '  "Up to date we are absolutely without any such  protection. We have not a single constable,  police officer, watchman "or "other person with the  least, authority to act in cases where interference  with" the unlawful element becomes necessary."  A plea such as this cannot go unheeded: ���������; It is  ���������the duty of the, Provincial .Government to1 make  provision for the proper protection of life and  property in such' cases, and no doubt ^the ease is  ,now under consideration^ but we*'feel'1 that the  matter should, not be allowed to go even as far  as it has before*action is taken. Y    . ,    ^, ���������  The News further says:       '     /    /    "  "We'would suggest as the best .means .towards  obtaining relief immediately that the citizens and  property owners of this city assemble jn meeting  and appoint a committee of active men whose  duty it shall be to take temporary charge of  the community's affairs and who will go to Victoria to make''-the proper representations to the*  Government officials, urging them to take steps  "without delay, so that:relief may, come before any  serious crimes^are committed and before the city  (of Hope's fair-name becomes-blighted,by rumors;  of prevailing lawlessness within its borders."  It is ,a,n opportunity for the^ better class of the  citieehs of,-Hope to get control of the destiny of  the,hew'town, and thereby prevent' the criminal  > and profligate :from', becoming ..a: factor; 6������*im>,  portahee; W0ftr������&*$Rfr 'dc^lh^sttctfrd^ttfetr  with dire results'. ';'*������������������  ' i ,i  -*T-  JWSNOTHt UNTO CAUSAE.  " * ��������� ; (Standard^of Empire.) /-.,��������� t  "Among Imperial topics of the day'Cantaaian-  U. S. A. reciprocity still holds first place. The  past week has brought important developments in  Ottawa, in "Washington, and in Jjondon. In the  latter city the publication of the< Tariff Commission's report on the Agreement has roused widespread attention among thoughtful people. The  question is asked, and not without reason: How  comes it that the British public obtains its first-  full and practical information regarding the  schedules of the agreement from the Tariff .Commission? All this valuable and most important  information, * with its very direct bearing upon  British trade, has been in the hands of the Imperial Government for a full month. Why has  it been suppressed? "Why has the Government  preserved a studious silence, touching, for example, such a salient feature of the, .Tariff Commission 's ��������� report as the* anouncement that on the  Anglo-Canadian trade of 1909-10 the Agreement  _iwould have had'the effect-of extinguishing" the"  preference of ������668,000 worth of goods, and of  reducing it on ������439,000 more? Toward this end,  then, we learn from across the Atlantic (in the  teeth of governmental quibbles here) Mr. Bryce  has been working at Washington. And in all this  matter, so vital to British interests, the Home  Government has reconciled with its sense of duty  |���������to the Home public a policy "of what may fairly  be called suppression. There is- certainly some  ground here for the mutteriugs and the criticisms  'of the past few days.  Recent events, as between the Dominion and  her powerful neighbor to the south, are the logical and inevitable outcome of the Imperial Government's continued neglect of those warnings,  and of-Canada's outstretched hand; inevitable,  because Canada's development as a great trading  [���������nation is too big and fundamental a thing to be  fe held in check"; logical, because the only alterna-  _"'.-tivc'from the course for which Canada plainly  \t showed her loyal preference during thirteen long  yyear's.--   We recognize no party connection here  for in Canada.   Tlie Canadian preference ought to  have been reciprocated by Britain before the Liberal party-came into' power here.   Ther, Conservative party in Canada could not have shown more,;  tendxiring' patience, or more loyal statesmanship  Khan'has been -shown, in-this-matter by the: party  "which, under Sir Wilfrid Laurier, introduced the  (preference to England."     7. ; ;Y  The heading of this article was the subject of a  masterly sermon by the Rev.' Lashley Hall, B.A.,  v B.D.^ at the Mount Pleasant-Methodist Church  last Sunday. The address was delivered in the  usual eloquent and thoughtful manner ol the ;.  speaker, and judging from the deep silence which  prevailed throughout its delivery must have made  a deep impression upon the audience.    . ..e     '  The/speaker pointed out that the city by its  very constitution lent itself to >the ,development  and , culmination of   certain flagrant sins.    He  .  stated that while this was the case,1 it-was- also*  true that great movements ,'for the advancement   ������  of civilization and the uplift,of matt originated in  the city.   He said he had no sympathy with those  who were constantly saying that the world was  getting worse and more. depraved, at the same  . time he felt that it. was madness to close our eyes  to .fac^s, and these facts were that evils were  rampant in our city as'in others.  In touching   upon   the ' projected ' /campaign  against the "restricted   district,"   the speaker  said'he was in accord with any broad and,care-  , fully thought out plan to abolish this evjl, but  he knew that to pass resolutions was not enough.'  ,   "You.may multiply indignation meetings until .-  Doomsday, but if you do riot'get ������to the root of "  ��������� the-problem you will do little good," said the  speaker.   He laid .the cause largely to'the great,  number of "homeless men and homeless women in ' ^  our city," and hoped that this, fact would be ^  taken into consideration when dealing with the  question.   He then referred to "the curse of the   --,'  apartment house}.where men and women, absolute strangers, were .continually   brought into  close .contact with each .other."   Another cause  .  was the liist for gold.   "Everybody comingrWest'V  did not do so tot come to Sunday school or to, make, 7  a home," said the speaker, "but to seek CkicL 7  They -went to the prairies toiestablish homes, out. -  T^lhfiycome here because^of thejuje olwealth^nd   '  this was; the cause of much sin."   .; *V "^-    "V  j ��������� j ���������> *>  Again, "a city is the., haunt' of ��������� the criminal:  > -Why?/Because it provides;''an opportunity for  him to operate. Prosperity' augments criminality,  The city is the happy hunting ground of the loafer and the criminal." The speaker then told how  "human vampires" ^ere daily planning the  ruination of the young girlsj of the city by alluring them to the wine .cafes and to shows of questionable character. He warned the young women  to observe the advice of their mothers and to refrain from walking the streets late at night with  men with whom they were only slightly acquainted.  "The sins of a city can be classified under two  heads," said he, ',women and wine. The two invariably go hand in hand. Abolish the saloon  and you go a long way to solving the other problem.   The saloon is the fount of sin."  -He said he "would like to see a move-to generate an interest in social sanitation. We spend  millions in sewers, which is right, but how much  more important is the social purity. Cotiid we  only a.ccompl_ish_this jwe_should_then7have .reached -,  the goal of the City of God. For," he said in  conclusion, "the City pf God was not projected  into the skies, but came down from the heavens.  It is on the cities of this old world that we should  concentrate our efforts and not only on the future."  A BASEJNSULT  French Canadian Judge Holds British Institution^  in Contempt���������Pope Supreme in Canada.  IlAYOR QOIBEFfIfl  Last Monday evening, when, the city council ? %*> JlJ  j We are a long-suffering people and exceedingly   .  liberal in our'vieAVS, and invariably accord,to each ������  and every citizen the right to think and act for  himself, just so long as he respects our laws. . Re-0  cently,' however, by tacit consent, or more* property*ty lethargic"indifference, we have admitted a  new standard in this regard���������we peraut a lnev-  archy to dominate our statutes;   we allow oi,  judges, if so inclined, to interpret the law accora-  'ing to the decrees of the Roman Pontiff; we.permit pernicious priests to enter our Canadian homes  and destroy family life by specious arguments as  to-their mode of living, when they have been married by a Protestant clergyman'; we meekly suffer'undesirable agitators and intriguers, such as ~*  the 'Jesuits, to infest the land and defy our laws  and most sacred ordinances and customs, and of  fer no word of protest.  ''Recently we have recorded numerous concrete  incidents which show conclusively the truth of  4hese statements, but the latest is as follows:  "Montreal,,March 23.���������Because they were not  married by a Roman Catholic priest, Justice Lau-  rendeau has adjudged Eugene Herbert and Marie  Couston" not legally married in 1908. The mar;  riage accordingly has been annulled." v  We wish here and now'to enter a protest against  ihia insult to our national'traditions and laws!  The reason' this marriage is annulled is that "they  'were not married by a Roman Catholic priestT".  Itrinay be contempt of cburi to "say it; yet we.  state it advisedly and deliberately, that this judg- ,  ment of* Jvuttce lAurendeau, based upon such /  grands "W theft; is a travesty bf justice and any- '  or to British institutions and unfit to pref ide in  a British, court. -      ,    ,      '*        ^  If such 'an outrage is to be tolerated, where will  be our boasted freedom of speech and action?  Are we to be dominated in this free country by a  narrow-minded, discredited, old man, sittinsr in  the Vatican at Rome, amidst false piety, intrigue  and Jesuitical plottings? It is time for Canadian  citizenship to protest against such gross insults. -  Where is our national pride,' if we are going to  allow such impositions as these to be perpetrated  almost daily in our midst?  The situation has become so critical that we believe it is sufficient to warrant a petition to the  Dominion authorities to take steps to settle once  and for all this question of "Marriage Laws." and  that every person who enters this country should  be given to distinctly understand that our statutes  are supreme. We further believe that this "Bull"  or ."Decree" or "Syllabus" of his Holiness the  Pope should be publicly and officially declared null -  and void as far as Canada is concerned.  ^  paper.

BORDEN'S JU5SJCWATTON.  *��������� "i" \ r  TWO FEARFUL DISASTERS.  COAL STRIKE.  It is generally expected that an extensive and  widespread strike will be called on Saturday next  in the East Kootenay   and South   Alberta coal  fields.   It always means a serious loss to botli parties when-a strike is called.    More especially so .  to the men.   We believe that if the men would be  a little'patient in this case that possibly through  the offices of Mackenzie King, this matter,might  be settled.   Coal barons are often unreasonable,  so sometimes are the men, so it Yvisable to go a  little slow at times, giving-'ample, time-for mature  consideration.     On   second   thought    we  often   -  change the conclusion arrived at in the heat of  argument.  -Already large numbers ofthe miners  ,a:re leaving the d al cities and, camps, which goes  to show-that .they are not interested in the ultimate  success, but-'o'nly. accepting the inevitable  and seeking employment elsewhere.":      --' Y  '     We hope that moderate counsels will, prevail .on  both-sides, and thus avert a serious loss to all.

We see that some are improving  their phone system by instaling the  watch phone. We believe from experience this ie a great improvement.  During the past week there has occurred two  awful calamities whieh have shocked all who have  read the accounts of them. We refer first to the  dreadful holocaust in New York, where about 150  girls and women lost their lives in the burning of  a shirt-waist facton. From the accounts given a\ e  would gather that scores of thes unfortunate creatures never hacha chance for their lnes. We are  told that the firemen had to baiter down many  doors with axes in order to release those who  otherwise would have suffered the same late of  their less fortunate fellows. Such catastrophies as.  this are an awful warning against high buildings  and inadequate fire escapes. It is "criminal to allow  them to be constructed, and we should not wait  until we are warned in this way before administer- .  ing preventive methods.  The second is that of the   foundering  of. the  steamer Sechelt just outside of Victoria.   This case  touches us nearer home.;   Many of us have frequently sailed up the-coast-in the "old tub."   She  was not a seaworthy vessel, "and no man.-had any  right to. send" her outside of a harbour.   She 'might  have been moderately safe in Burrard Inlet, but  tO;let her go out into tiie Straits of Georgia was .  sheer madness.Y It was ten chances to oue that  she  would   go  down.    This  vessel  was  always  known to be top-heavy, ahd one never heard her  7 spoken,of, except in terms of Contempt'.and sus--  picion.   How an.v company would dare to operate  such an  unsafe craft in such dangerous waters,  as is constantly experienced in the Straits, is past:  comprehension. \,  ��������� ,.. In behalf of publie safety, in,, behalf of the  bereaved ones, in behalf, of eominoii humanity, it  is up to the proper authorities to make a tuost  searching investigation into this disaster. ' '  \ This is not the only vessel of the type, which is  being "operated-on this coast, and often large  crowds are packed on these craft ahd'a "pot-luck"!1  chance . taken for their. safety. The publie are  usually careless-of these matters and are willing  to trust to the transportation--companies,, some,of  whom are only too willing to reap a few dollars  at the risk of scores of lives.  The public have the right to demand the most  drastic measures being taken in.-, this case against  those responsible, and also to demand a careful  investigation into some other vessels in common  use on this coast.  There is a persistent humor that R. h. Borden,        w>*.,  the leader of the opposition at Ottawa, has re-^rf^fWjt  signed.   There is no doubt that Mr. Borden hast p^||#|  not been a very successful leader, but it shoulfli Z^-fM^  be remembered"that, he has been laboring under,. JJ}-$:f  severe difficulties.   In the first place he has only, *;:f������f  been leader of a hopelessly outnumbered oppofci������Y?'^V  tion, which is about the least likely position in r v -  which a man can gain popularity.   Then, again, '^>  Mr   Borden is a very quiet, reserved man/ alidK *.  absolutely honest in every act, and while^btfth'  -  his followers and his opponents admit his per- " ~f  feet honesty of motive, yet many lack confidence !+  m his ability as a leader.   We are of the opinion ,  that Mr -Borden-has-not-made-the-mow'TDi-hiar_"       '^"  opportunities as a leader of the opposition.'  He  has lost many chances of doing a good service "to  his country by not strongly opposing many measures which passed the House with but little opposition.    For instance,  the Autonomy Bill could  have been blocked and the present reciprocity  atrreement is slipping along with but little real  objection.    The  Conservatives  of the  provinces  are more alive to the situation than are the federal members, apparently.  Manv sugc&tions have been made as to his successor, but no one has^mentioned the one" man who  is pre-eminently fitted to lead the Federal ToriesY  viz.,  Sir Charles ^Hibbert Tupper.    Canada hasY       y  been   the loser   because-of the   absence   of Sir   ������������������  Charles from federal politics.    He. is a man of       -Yv  rare ability and wide experience.    As a speaker ^ 7;  he has no peer in the Dominion.   His integrity is       Y77-  beyond doubt and as a'" citizen he is a true im- 7  perialistic Canadian.

We ^  have had it in the annual reports of a Canadain  life company, the Temperance and General, now  merged in the Manufacturers Jjife. We have it  still in the figures furnished by various life companies of the Ignited Kingdom, where comparisons compared with the expectation under such  policies.

This com-"  pany's actuary, Mr. "Roderick MacKenzie Moore,  compiled and submitted io the British Institute  t>i Actuaries several years ago a paper, having  elaborate tables and diagrams, showing the comparative mortality' under assured lives of abstainers u.id non-abstainers for sixty":one years, namely, fr'-m 1841 to 1901. The paper in question was  an exnaiistiye one, dealing with 324,673 individual cases.   The investigation was begun by Sir. W\  1 P. Hardy, the former actuary of the institution*  and by him brought down to the year 1������&2. The  subsequent work has been done by Mr. Moore.  The paper sets forth tbat the following propositions are conclusively proved:  F" Y That the non-abstainers assured in  the Institution' are good average lives, generally  equal to the V<-t a'"'rtr������t"d standard of assured  life, namely, the Om Table. '  '���������'.'Second.'- That the abstainers show a marked  superiority to the non-abstainers throughout the  entire working years of life for every class of  policy, and for both sexes, however tested.  A pamphlet on  the subject of Teetotalers as  Insurants wa-.  published in >~ew York not long  ago by Mr. C   W. ScovpI. of the Provident Life,  which company, wo believe.

Among these 132.000 deaths, 7.">.671 of them "were  among the moderate clrinl:r>rs and 56 S02 among  the teetotalers.

"Another, and a very recent tribute to the  benefit of insurants from teetotalism. is to be  found in the report for 1910 of an English company, the Sceptre Li1> Association, whieh has a  Temperance as well as a General Section of policy-holders. Calculating on the basis of the Actuaries' Ilm table, the mortality experience of,this  Company was that where 126 deaths were ex  pected in the General Section, 111 actually occurred; while 133 were expected in the Temperance Section only 61 occurred, v Here is a remarkable saving. And'to show that last year's  rate was not exceptional a table is submitted  showing the deaths in the two sections in twenty-  seven years., From 1889 to 1910 inclusive in the  General Section there were 3,352 deaths expected  and 2, 674 actually occurred. During the same  twenty-seven years in the Temperance Section  the deaths expected were 2,311, and only 1,214 occurred. To abstain from liquor, therefore, is  proved to have a commercial value in the insurance world by tbe experience of this company.  ANOTHBB WIXED WA&RUGJS.  Toronto "Sentinel."  Another case of domestic discord has come to  our notice as the result of a mixed marriage. In  this case an Anglican girl married a Roman Catholic, who is a Government official in Toronto.  Their pre-nuptial agreement was that while the  husband was to remain a Roman Catholic, the wife  was to continue to attend her own church,, and  their children should be brought up as Anglicans.  For seven years this arrangement was observed  with fidelity. At the end of that period, when  four children were born to' the couple, the parish  priest interfered and insisted that the children,  who had been 'attending an Anglican school and  an Anglican chuv.ii, should be transferred immediately to the separate  school and the Roman  Catholic Church.  ~ Up-tor this~poirr the-man- in -the-case- had -beei^  an indulgent husband and father.    He had kept  his agreement in an honorable way, but the advent  of the priest icto the home charged tU������ charactej  of the man entirely.   He refused to bo bound an\  longer by the terms of hiH agreement, and insisted  that the' childr<Mi should attend his church aud  the separate school.    It was in  vain the wift  pleaded with him to carry out his bargain with  ' lifer.    The priest had made him believe that it  was his duty to ignore the promise he had made  and to obey the instructions of the Church,   The  wife, being a woman of some strength of will,  resisted.   She refused to be coerced,    Tlw> strife  between the couple continued with growing in  tensity under the skilful   manipulation   of thi.

They are distributing literature throughout the city. They are  endeavoring by personal intercourse to  persuade members of many churches  to accept the doctrines of the so-called  Church of Jesus.  After some careful sleuthing on the  part of members of a missionary society, here, it has been learned that  two elders of the Mormon church have  been very successful-during the past  few-months in getting converts. Most  of the Mormons still practice polygamy and are putting up a strong fight  against those who are attacking their  methods and arguments in proselyting.

The promoters are working like mad to obtain the necessary consent to start  work. Montreal needs more ways of  communication with the mainland to  the south of her, but it is .doubtful if  she- is quite ready to go into bridge  building and tunnelling wholesale.  There is something behind all this ac-  -ivlty and excitement which the pubic, as yet, has not - been able to  athom. '       -   '    r  New Phase of Waterways Projects.  Heretofore Montreal has been look-  ad upon as an unanimous champion  of the Georgian Bay canal project, so  that it waa with some 'surprise that  he plans outlined by Mr. Henry Hol-  vate, the expert engineer, for th* i������-  velopment   of   Canada's   waterways,  were received so heartily.    Mr. Hol-  late asserts that if the present  St.  Lawrence route were improved as it  would be quite possible to improve it,  it would prove so much superior to  the Georgian Bay canal route as to  render the consideration of that vast  project entirely superfluous.  -  , '-    :,  vPor  many  years,''  said   Mr.   Hol-  gate, "theimprovement of the St. Lawrence canal system has been discussed,  but not in such a way as to produce  definite  conclusions.    No  comprehensive estimates and surveys have been  made so as to determine the practicability  of  increasing the   capacity  of  this route to Montreal on such a scale  as contemplated for the Georgian Bay  canal, with locks 650 feet long, 75 feet  wide and a  minimum of 22  feet of  water on the sill.    I think the time  has come when such a study of the  St. Lawrence should be made, and this  before we commit-ourselves to heavy  expenditures on existing routes."  Mr. Holgate also made incidental reference to the proposed development of  power at Long Sault rapids, saying  that the idea of canalizing the river  by maintaining the navigation channel in the river and erecting dams below the various rapids had been the  dream of engineers for many years.  Industries on the  Boom.  Despite the fact that reciprocity does  not stand a chance of being settled  one way or the other for some time  to come, Canadian industries are booming, and there is a feeling of the ut;  most confidence pervading the atmosphere breathed"  by those    who have  money tied up in Canadian industrial  securities.     The   severe   depressions  which have prevailed during the past  twelve months in such staples as ce-  *g  ment, iron and asbestos are now lifting  and legitimate business is getting back  to.a normal basis again.   The Amalgamated Asbestos  Corporation,  for   7 -  stance, whose annual    meeting,   was  held last week, give promise of good  times to come by announcing that, although the output.from the mills during the past'season was large, with a  lessening of the.cost of production this  year, due to the adoption,   of newer  methods, and with more, activity, in the  trade this coming    season.7 of which  jsigns are now apparent; the results of  the coming year will show greta improvement.   An English syndicate has  purchased ??r'0,000 treasury bonds of  this company and ?200,000 more will  probably be purchased later on, so that  the organization now "has the same  working capital as at the commencement of its operations.   Shareholders  in this and other industrial companies  have great confidence in. the future, no  matter what the political aspect.  On the whole, industrial stocks and  bonds have never; been looked upon  more favorably than now. The P.

The people who are flattering themselves" that they have a right to be  called temperate because they abjure  whiskey while drinking beer, ought to  post themselves upon the latest scientific information available concerning  the physical effect of different forms  of alcoholic beverages. Some interesting facts along this line are set out  in a letter published recently in the  Hamilton Herald, written by Dr. H.  Arnott, in which he says:  "There is a widespread delusion  among people who consider themselves  temperate and sober, that beer is a  safer drink than whiskey. The very  reverse is the truth, but it seems slow  to be so believed. I think there is not  a medical man of any standing in this  country but will tell you that beer is  much . more harmful than whiskey.  The reason of this is that an acid is  developed in the beer during the process of fermentation that is very destructive to the kidneys. It is well  known that man can drink many  times as< much beer as water, because  the' beer acts so powerfully on the  kidneys as to carry It off very quickly.  That is why so many beer drinkers die  of Blight's disease of the kidneys.  "Life, insurances companies say that  a man at the age of 20, if he does not  drink' beer, may reasonably expect'to  live to the age of 61, but if he is a  beer drinker, he will not probably live  to be over forty, or forty-five.

Cheerfulness is an indispensable feature of a desirable home���������rcheerfulness  even  when  dark clouds  are  passing  over it and sorrow  is an occasional  visitor,    says  the  Rev.  J.  G.  Green-  hough.    Bright faces are better than  sunshine/ good  temper    is  a  white-  winged  angel  seated   or   tho  hearth.  Gratitude for all the good things and  a happy way of taking the cross things  is the sweetest part of religion, while  a spirit of discontent, with its gloomy  moods, sour faces, and perpetual naggings and complaints, s    vly destroys  all  the  be-^  feelings  aud  affections,  and makes a' home as uninviting as the  cheerless   streets,  and   sometimes" as  terrible as a haunted house.  A few seem favorites of fate  In Pleasure's lap caressed:  Yet, think not all the rich usi great  Are likewise truly blest.  But, oh, wnat crowds in  "ve^y land  Avi'' vrrteh'ed and folorn!

HOW   TO    ENJOY    LIFE,  H  Happiness is that state of mind  whereby those who are fortune "e  .. f ugh to possess it cannot fail to eu-  ��������� life, aud to see the brightest ard  best side of things, especially if they  have health and all that is necessary  for their creature comforts. It iv said,  however, that some people are never  happy unless they are miserable, and  unfortunately it is" true. But what a  deplorable state of affairs, and how  very unnecessary, unless, of course,  circumstances are particularly adverse  and trying. Even then it iv wise to  make the best of things, ^n by so doing life becomes more bearable. For  what is the good of repining? It only  makas matters worse.  "When you make a mistake, don't  look back ai it long. Take the reason  of the'thing into your cwn mind, and  then look forward. Mistakes are  uns of wisdom. The past cannot be  changed. The future is yet in your  puwer.���������Hugh White.  or the bridegroom? The ushers are often chosen from the bridegroom's intimate friends, although the favorite  brother or cousin, of the bride is'often  included in their number, out of compliment to her.  When the Bride's Mother Has Remarried.���������Please -inform me what is  the- correct form of wedding announcement when the mother of the bride-  elect has been a widow and has married a second time? ;The daughter's  name should be given in full, as, fori  instance:  Mrs. Howard Henderson  announces the marriage of her daugh-  .  ter,  Marian Louise Wilson  etc.;  or the second husband's name  may be included with! the mother's,  which is the more usual form (unless  the marriage has been of recent date),  and the bride is described as "their  daughter." l  The Girl Who Does Not Dance.���������  May I accept an invitation to a ball if I  do not know, how-to dance, but should  greatly enjoy looking on? Yes, hut  you should explain it to your hostess.  The Engaged Girl and Other Men.���������  When a girl is secretly engaged should  she continue to accept the attentions  of other men? No. To such men as  are showing her particular ,or interested devotion, or going, to expense .to  show her attentions not accorded to  others, she should write, taking them  into her confidence',-.binding them to  secrecy.  Which Fork and Spoon to Use.���������  How "may- one ~know~ which-fork-" or  spoon to use at a formal course dinner? You should watch your neighbors  and follow their exainple. It is customary to kuse the fork farthest from the  plate first, and then take the others in  succession.  "R. S. V. P."���������Please settle a dispute. I have always supposed it bad  form to request a reply to an inyita-  I tion. One is supposed to know enough  to do so, except for an afternoon reception. Am I right? You are quite  right. Only because people are not so  well-bred or so thoughtful as they  should be are the letters "R. S."V. P."  appended occasionally to the invitations for a wedding breakfast, where  places are reserved for the guests at  tables.  The Bridegroom's Attire at an Early  Wedding.-���������As only the families of  bride and bridegroom will witness our  wedding at ten o'clock a. m., is it necessary for the bridegroom to wear a  black suit? No; at so early a wedding  a tweed suit may be worn with entire  propriety.  Drinking from Bouillon Cups.���������Is it  the proper thing to. drink bouillon^ from  the cups when spoons are provided? If  the  bouillon  cups  have  two handles  j spoons are  used.    If the bouillon is  I served in teacups it may be taken ,in  I either way.' "  French  Dressing.

The meeting of the Canada Medical  Association promises to be one of the  most: successful;in the history of that i  Socity. Many physicians and surgeons  of -World-wide_reputation_have .signified,  their intention, of being; present. Sir.  Thomas Ban, physician, to the late  King is to read the opening address in  medicine. Professor Alexander Prlm-  rqse of Toronto is to deliver the address in surgery. ,The celebrated- Doctor William'.Mayo of Rochester has .arranged to be ^present and is expected  to take a prominent part in the .discussions.  Amongst the subjects of great importance to Canadians at large which  will be discussed is a proposed campaign against typhoid fever. The experience "of Toronto, of Montreal in  1910 and.presently that of Ottawa have  made it essential that united action  should be considered to allay the terrors of this dread and yet preventable  disease.  Reduced rates have been promised  by railway-companies and already a  large number of Canada's Medical prac.  titioners have signified their intention  tb be present.  BOY SCOUTS TO CORONATION  Boy Scouts from the Over-seas Dominions will have official standing in  the Coronation   procession,    although  provision had not at first been made  for them.   Yet, how detachments are  to get to the old country and who is  to pay for the expenses of the trip is  another question.   The Canadian Century of Montreal is sending a squad  I of twenty, the boys to be drawn from  j parts of Canada, and it is not unlikely  j that Colonel Sherwood and the Domin-  ���������ion Council will arrange to send a second  squad.
