The report is that she foundered shortly  after leaving- Sydney, B. C. This means that she  went down in comparatively quiet waters, and  the cause must have been faulty loading.  Two weeks ago the Sechelt foundered just out  of Victoria and about twenty lives were lost. We  remarked 'at that time that there were other  dangerous craft on this coast .which should not  bo allowed, to carry pasengers. , This is true.  Surely these two terible accidents will result in  an investigation by the authorities-. We fear that  the public are usually too indifferent, the companies to mercenary and the officials to dilatory  in these matters. ,   i  The public must not allow: this occasion to pass  without the most exhaustive inquiry' being made  and a ful public explanation given. We do not  want a quiet investigation with the official report  filed three -thousand miles away in Ottawa, but  every word of the report should be available to  the public."

[That great branch* of the English-speaking people  urhich~is at present presided over by President  H'aft is already securely incorporated.

A man named Lemieux was tried in Montreal  list week for holding up at the point of\% pistol  Jie secretary of a Masonic lodge and robbing him  If certain papers in connection with':>'the lodge.  Ihe accused confessed his guilt, but pleaded that  le committed the act in defense of his religion-  lie Roman church.   The judge said:   '' Gentlemen of the jury, the proof is perfectly sufficient,  emieux took part inian atrocious attempt on lib-  r*ty.   One meets in certain families some person*  Effected with heart disease and other trouble who  Idght he killed instantaneously by the tight of ���������  bvolver.   It was a bandit's trick.   Do your duty,  .you are honest and intelligent you cannot do  jtherwise than report a verdict of guilty against  lie accused."   Notwithstanding the evidence and  ie judge's charge the jury acquitted the prisoner,  he only defense of thi/accused was'"that he had  Jited for the church.

He blessed, the bread, but vanished aVthe word.  And left them both exclaiming, '"Twas the Lord!  Did not'our.hearts feel all He deigned to say.  Did they not burn within us by the way?"  Seekf to Justify Hi* Action re Sewerage, but Blunders Along By Mis-statements.  The World, tbe mayor's organ and mouthpiece,  is 'kept pretty busily engaged straightening out  the tangle His Worship has gotten himself into,  and evidently finds it rather a difficult task, judging from the many contradictions and misrepresentations which appear in its .columns.  Last Saturday, in a lengthy editorial in which  the Attorney General was the chief object of its  attack, it honored Aid. Stevens by,referring to  the views which he had expressed on annexation  and sewerage. ���������. To .show the consistency of the  World, we will quote two clauses in the same  issue referring to the same speech > "Aid.  Stevens briefly outlined the history of annexation  . . . Quoting figures to show^that the City of  Vancouver- wis" now" in a financial position to  atend to the question. . . " Compare that  report with, "Last, night Aid. Stevens argued  that the dity is not in a position to provide South  Vancouver with sewerage.'' Both items are referring to a the same speech. Which does the  World expect 4he public to accept t So much for ",  ito consistency.  Here is an illustration of the misrepresentation  resorted to in order to draw atehtion away from  the mayor's hopeless position: "Early in December Aid. Stevens went to Victoria, an dwhen he  came back he reported to the Annexation Committee that it was his impression the Government  would grant enabling legislation for annexation.  Twice during December Aid. Stevens went to  Victoria." This is indeed- a jewel. In the first  place the word "December',' should be spelled  "January," then in the next place the report to  the Annexation Committee refered to Hastings  and D. L. 301, not South Vancouver; and further,  there were no Annexation Committee meetings in  December. G,  The facts are as follows: Early in January  Aid. Stevens went to Victoria to adjust with the  Provincial Government some details necessary to  consummate the annexation of Hastings Townsite  and D. L. 301, and while there took-occasion to  ���������enquire'if South Vancouver had as yet made apv  plication to the Government for "enabling legislation," and was informed that they had not.  He then returned to Vancouver and immediately  ��������� wrote ��������� the"'following letter to Reeve Pound of  South Vancouver:  Vancouver, B. C, January, 1911.  "City Clerk's Office,  "Reeve Pound,  "South Vancouver, B. C. %  "My Dear. Mr. Pound:���������y     "������ "V7Y -  "I have just returned from Victoria, and while  there interviewed Mr. Bowser regarding ^he proposed amendments necessary to enable you of  South Vancouver" to' secure the required vote for  annexation to the City.  "It seems the matter has not been taken up  with him from your standpoint, and he suggested  that the time was rather short to do anything this  session, but has promised to take it up With the  Executive. *  V-' "JP^p#?#M|ire--  =���������;��������� ^^^^k^W^iSmr  ���������;tt'3ffi^X*.<tt!������---..-,!S.:&vK.-j  "I think it'would be a wise move for you and  your Council to take early steps to bring before -  the Government the extreme difficulty under  which you labor in connection with this matter,  and this will probably result in the necessary,  amendments being secured.  Yours truly,  "H. H. STEVENS,  Chairman Annexation Committee."  A brief explanation at this point is necessary.  Last summer, when negotiations were first opened  re annexation with South Vancouver, Reeve  Pound intimtaed that it would be necessary to secure "special legislation," andagreed with the  "city" members-of the^ebmihittee-that-South Van- ;  couver would attend to that part of the matter,  consequently nothing was done at all by the city  committee, and when Aid. Steven's learned in  January, just before the House met, that nothing  had been done, he at once wrote the letter quoted.  Itawas not until early in February that any application was made to the Government for, the special legislation of .-which we hear so much. The  Government turned it down; and as far as we are  concerned we disagreed with the action of the  Government, but not to the extent that we would  feel compelled to blackguard the administration  unceasingly. We believe that having lost in that  case we should adopt another course, and have  ever since most persistently urged the adoption  of the joint sewerage scheme. Not so, Mr. Mayor;  he feels it his duty to block, ridicule and oppose  , every suggested solution to the sanitary problem, insisting on harping back to the Government's refusal to give special legislation, and will  listen to no reason.  The mayor has been holding.meetings in South  Vancouver at which he tells the residents "The  City is in a position to provide sewerage works  for South Vancouver, and next year two millirin  dollars can be spent, on sewerage works alone, if  necessary;" lie also tels them he will give sew-,  erage relief in six months^if only they were annexed.  Aid. Stevens pointed to the financial obligations  of the City and aserted that in his opinion the  joint trunk sewerage scheme should be financed  independent of the general debt of the districts '  involved. To do this, he said, it would be necessary to obtain special powers from the ^Provin-  cial Government as no such powers existed at  the present time, and also that'it "would be wise  to have the Government represented on the committee in order that they might be familiar with  each step. For this he was taken to task by  the World. The mayor is quite welcome to-hold  any; opinion he may see .fit,'but-we question his  right to mislead the public. We are as desirous  as anyone to see a Greater Vancouver- in factr the  editor of this paper is responsible for the question  taking practical form, but we deprecate any effort  to deceive the residents of South Vancouver into  iithinking that anexation will give immediate relief.

I think I am as good a judge of the different  nationalities and their characteristics as are the  average writers. I say, unhesitatingly, that the  Englishman is needed as much as is any other  man on this round ball. And I do not except the  Canadian, especially the ignorant1 and impertinent  sort who seem to take a delight in insulting Eng-; .  lishinen. *  These men from the "old sod" make good to as  large a per cent, as do native-borne Canadians.  They are as successful as are those of any other  nation. They carry with them characteristics' '  which are a boon to any commonwealth, be it old  or young. ' . _ s ������  Personally, I welcome the Englishmen, and amY  always proud to see them coming into our midst.  Moreover, they are coming whether they are invited or not.   They do not have to wait for an'  invitation.   They are a very different breed, and Y  go, as they always have  gone,  just  when and,  where they please.   They are the most .successful  and populous migrators in the history of mankind.  They are coming to Canada by tens and hundreds  of thousands whether Canadian snobs like it or '  ' not. Canadians who are true men, who are revned  iri spirit and observant,  most heartily welcome  -��������� these Englishmen,c.and have no fears about the,  helpful' advantages they carry with them to any  land they visit and' make their home, ���������  The Englishman has that in his nature that fits  him to come, and still come in spite of opposition  and ridicule.   He is of a kingly class, and is one  of the earth's best and most successful rulers for  a long period.   And hisv mind and spirit are made  up on the question of -coming to Canada, when  he pleases, and will ask not any man on earth  whether an invitation" and a welcome await him:  Come on, Mr. Englishman, by ones, twos, tens,'  . hundreds, and scores of thousands. There,is ample  " room for yotf' ihtnis'Dominion of 'Canada.'" You;  are, by nature and intellect,,loyal to the' Grand;  Old British Union Jack.   Come along, with your  gruff voice, your/domineering ways, your self-,  assertiveness, your love of truth, your brave and  fearless spirit.   There is room for millions of your  sort in Canada.  Every land,,to which you and your nation have  gone for an abiding place, has been bettered by  your presence. Whether we blue-blooded Canadians like it or not, your mission on this earth,  ,from the days of Joseph in Egypt to this hour,  has been to uplift the human family, and no men  in the history of the world haVe done so* much  of nation-building and uplifting as has been done  by your race. And this work is awaiting you right  here in Canada. You are welcome, because you  are needed. ' Our country needs you and those of  our Canadian-born sons most of all. -",  I am Canadian-born, and raised in the land I  love most, but I am proud to be able to claim  not only good British blood, but English blood in  my veins. And there are, more descendants of the  Englishman in Canada than of any two other nationalities on earth.   Come on!  E.  ODLUM.  First we must have a "trunk sewer system."  This will cost millions, and most of it will have  to be constructed as soon as possible, hence tht  _ absolute necessity of some very careful financing,  if other public works are to be carried on as re-'  ������������������quired. ���������.'.-''��������� '  ������������������ y' ���������  We submit to our readers the following data,  and ask that they judge for themselves. The  City's borrowing-power, including the very latest  revised assessment roll, is $17,914,000. The present bonded debt is $16,074,000, plus local improvement now passed, of which the city has ���������  legal liability of $217,064, or a total debt now  of $16,345,064, leaving a surplus of $1,568,936.  Against this surplus there is now before the City  Council money by-laws amounting to $3,955,000,  which means a deficit this early in the year of  $2,386,064. In other words, provision has been  made in April, 1911,-"to spend nearly two and a  half million dollars beyond our borrowing powers. We have nine months of this v^ar "till to r:������r?  and heavy expenditures on local improvements  are sugesteid, of which it in estimated the C'tv's  share will reach close on another million, besides  many other schemes which wil arise*before the  year closes. ,  It is argued by the Mayor that next year the  City"will,add $6,006,000 to its borrowing powers.  That may be true, but next year will bring its  own demands. It-will.require-every-cent'.we can  get to put in lateral sewers, without expending a  cent on trunk sewers. There is a large portion of  the city simply reeking in filth and crying for  sewers. If the mayor is such a magician that he -  is going to give South Vancouver sewers in six  months, why does he not*make some suggestion  of how we "can sewer; the older city?    j,  It would appear that limited to  "talk," and is incapable of practical action.  Many of us expected great things of him a year  ago, perhaps we expected too much. If so. he is  to blame, not frince -who tmcWi bim. ITe has  promised great things but has failed to bring before" the. Council'any practical sctieme of public  improvement, but on the contrary has attacked  others who have, and ibost assiduously opposed  and obstructed all efforts to get a permanent solution of these vexing problems. 7  *v '  / 1~  THE WESTERN CALL  +-H*������^*^:^^^^H-*H.^^^ **H>**H.������^ V***  f  New stock of CAMERAS, FILMS,  PAPERS, Etc. at I.

MEASURING DISTANCE BY SOUND.  An Ingenious plan has   been   suggested for measuring the altitude of  the   aeroplane.    The '��������� principles  . of  acoustics are interestingly employed.  It is known that- any'sharp sound,  such as a quick whistle, or report,  which may he differentiated from the  sound made by the machine itself, will  be returned to the ear of the opera'  tor, in the form, of an echo, from the  surface of the earth.    If, therefore  the time elapsing between the. sound  and the echo be noted, the corresponding distance may be estimated from  the known velocity of sound���������1,100  feet a second.   Taking this, and remembering that it is double the distance, going and coming, the operator in the aeroplane is able to estimate   quite  accurately  the  distance  from the machine to the earth.

The story is told of a man of large  wealth who lived most of the year in  a country home among the htllaTof  Vermont, U. S. A. All, his inheritance  and 'surrounding were those of culture and luxury. .All the temptations  of wealth drew him towards ease, and  selfishness.  But, instead of that, he was-known  in the little church of the place, ana  hroughout the neighborhood, as    a  self-sacrificing,    hard-working,   -onse-  crated Christian.  One day a minister who visited the  church asked him how he came to  throw himself so heartily into Christian work. His answer was quaint but  striking:  When I became a'Christian, and  began to read my Bible with appreciation of its meaning, I read that I  was called into the vine yard of the  Lord; and I made up my mind at  once' that I was nbt called, there .to  eat grapes, but to hoe, and I've been  trying to hoe ever since.  The man with the hoe is needed in  every church: Those Christians who  come Into the Lord's vineyard and  have no idea of doing anything- are  usually in the majority.  , "I|ve joined the church," said such  a man to his pastor,  I am saved. But you'll have to excuse  me from coming to prayer-meetings,  or taking up    Sabbath-school    work,  TRANSCONTINENTAL   IMPROVE;  MENT.  The C. P. R. are proposing to continue the double-tracking of ' their  main line from Brandon, Manitoba, to  Medicine Hat, Alberta, and it is believed that work will begin this  spring. At present the C. P. R.  double track runs west trom Fort William to Brandon���������over 600 miles.  With a double track from the Rocky  Mountains to the Great Lakes, the  C. P. R. will be able greatly to reduce  the running time of transcontinental  and local trains.  The Canadian Northern Railway  Company have made a fair start toward making this a record year in'-its  growth and business development.  Since the beginning of the year the  company have placed orders for rails  to be delivered in 1911 to the amount  of 90,000 tons, at a cost of over  $3,000,000. These rails will be laid  in Ontario and Western,Canada. There  are at present 520 miles graded and  ready for the.steel in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Last year  528 miles, of rails were laid, but that  record will be greatly exceeded this  ye������r. .    .  11 SPECIALIST in all kinds of Interior and Decor- ?

"The question is- not one of beauti-  fication merely, its essential character  is one of necessity for a working population in an industrial citq. In ail  large' cities of modern nations, which  have not been planned, certain very  great evils have been .found, to result  from size. The poorer people find their  work in the .centre of the mass, their  buildings.and habitation become- congested and. undesirable. . Light, air  and space for recreation are absent  and .the health of the people is lowered  and an alarming. death rate develops  The children, having no playgroundB  die rapidly, juvenile crime develops,  the growth'of population is stopped  and efficiency, is, immensely .lowered.  The enormous problems of. the slums  and degeneracy arise/ Much has been  done to remedy'these evils by sanitation and education, but it Is thoroughly recognized in,Europe that  nothing can replace good original  planning. Not only are playgrounds  and parks necessary in the centres of  cities, but .ampler, parks further out  tire necessary and .escape to,them 1b  provided by cheap, rapid, comfortable  transit facilities."  ,"    ,  News  from  Antwerp to  the  effect  that two immigrant steamers of the,  Red Star line, the Gothland and the,'  Samland, are tc be transferred from  the American to the Canadian service  is  surely a  sign  of the  times.    Al-.'  though the totals of immigration into  Canada  and  the   United  States  still j  show  a  large difference  in  favor of  the latter it cannot be questioned that  the ratio of increase in immigration,  not only from the British  Isles, but  from the Continent of Euiope, is pronounced in  favor of Canada.    While  immigration into  the  United  States,  speaking generally, is being maintained,  especially from the Russian and  Slavonic countries and from Italy, it'  Is   doubtful   if   the   total   number  of'  immigrants will rise very much above  its present proportions.  i  Immigration into the United States  reached its highest point in 1907 when  the total was 3,2S5,349. ln consequence of' the financial disturbance pf  that and the following year the total  fell to 782,870 in 1908 and to 751,786  in 1909. Each of these latter totals is  less than thatJ of either of the years  1903 and 1904 and is less, in fact, than  the total immigration of a year as  far back as 1882. In 1910 the total  rose to 1,041,570, but there is no reason to suppose that immigration into  the United States will ever greatly  exceed the million mark.'

Each of the candidates has his  political friends, whoare doing all the  wire-pulling in their power. Some  of the applicants' friends are quite outspoken.

Any one wishing to spend a delightful half holiday and at the same time  find a place for good investments, cannot do better; than take the Fraser  avenue car at the corner of Hastings  street and Main street, and go direct  to ��������� Ferris. - road, South Vancouver.  Alighting there, you will be surprised  at the exquisite views all around.  Leaving the grand mountain scenery behind, you look towards the  southl and. a beautifu,, far-spreading  vista will meet your gaze; passing  down the avenue across the, bridge,  over v the silver waters of the Fraser  River, the verdant, pasture land of  Lulu Island, backed by the sombre  bills of the States, at once revives the  spirits of the tired city worker, and  he Involuntarily' pauses to enjoy the  .perfect air which surrounds hlin.

He will  not be asked to buy, but if he needs  a  good   incsstment  he   can   rely  on  straightforward   and   honorable   dealing there. ......  No one can doubt that South Vancouver is a rapidly advancing city, and  the land is daily growing more valuable and the greatert credit should  be given to the murJ Jpality. for the they have made during  the last three years.   Good roads and  sidewalks are to be seen everywhere,  and new roau:   are being opened for  the  benefit of investors.    Stores  of  every description are doing well; thei  tradesmen call for.orders and deliver  their goods on the same day. Churches  ot all denominations are springing up.  St. Mary's Church of   England   was  opened by the Bishop of Westminster  a fortnight ago, and the large congregation spoke in favor for its future  success.    The  Baptist Church under  the care of the  Rev. aRedmen is a  (great favorite among many   of   the  '(residents, the pastor being a remarkably clever preacher.   And the Methodists are well taken care of by the  Rev.   John. Page,   whose   attractive  little church is a pretty landmark, on  Forty-seventh   avenue.     We   understand  the  Ladies'  Aid  Society  will  hold a sale of work next Friday, April  7th, beginning at three o'clock, at the  private residence of Mr.   and   Mrs.  Page, near the Methodist Church.      ������������������  The schools are also making wonderful headway and a new one is to  be built shortly in the vicinity of the  North Arm, the River Roal school being no longer large enough for the  number  of  pupils.    The  South  Hill  school is a fine building and is already  full of scholars.   Mr. Clarke, the head  master, makes a very proficient teacher.   We are sorry to hear Mr. McDonald, the assistant master, is ill, Buffering from pneumonia.   The boys of the  South Hill school were successful in  winning the "Grover Cup" last Friday  in the final test game with the Moun-  : tain; View team;    Both sides played  well and with great fairness.   During  the first part of the game the Mountain View boys seemed to have the  advantage, but ln the latter half, the  South Hill, team played up well, and  a goal being Percy F. James  decided a very tight battle in their  favor and also brought their football  season to a close.

Mr. Kelly, with the aid of Mr. Budlong, has put in one of the most pleasing store fronts in Mount Pleasant,  and we hope to see others follow the  good example. Painted in white with  glazed tile front, gives the store an  up-to-Kelly appearance. Oh the inside has been installed a new silent  salesman, which is the first of a number Mr. Kelly is securing.

Mr. Robert Harris,  the dean of Canadian artists, instead  of weeping, is smiling.

Easter Dinner Menu. ,  ���������:��������� y   Onion Soup.  Beques' Baked Mackerel.  ���������     Cucumber Ribbons.,  Chicken Paprika.     Spring Croquettes.  French String Beans.  -     'Grapefruit Salad.  Toasted Fromage Rolls.  . Bavarian Panache.  Bonbons.; Salted Almonds.  Cafe Noir.  A soup which bears the homely  name of Onion Soup is now being  served at many fashionable hotels.  It certainly deserves a better name,  for far from being commonplace, it is  very'delicate and may well find a  place in a formal menu. Make eight  or ten gashes in a six-pound piece of  beef cut from the shin; put in a soup  kettle, add three quarts of cold water,  cover, heat slowly to the boiling point,  and let simmer seven hours; then  strain, and remove fat. Thinly slice  five small onions, and cook in two  tablespoonfuls of butter until the  onions are soft, stirring frequently,  12���������Call.. cmfwyp etaoinnupJ  that tbey may not burn. Add onions  to six cupfuls of stock-brought to the  boiling point, and add two and one-  half teaspoonfuls of good beef extract,  and salt to taste. ' Cut bread in one-  third-inch slices, and toast. Place a  piece in each, boup plate, sprinkle  with grated Parmesan cheese, and add  soup just before sending to the table.  Begiies' Baked Mackerel hast tickled  the palate of many a' traveler when  visiting the interesting city of New.  Orleans. A mackerel from Northern  waters or one of the Spanish mackerel  may be used for this dish. .Certainly  no simpler fish" course" could be  planned for. Wipe the fish with a  cheese cloth wrung out of cold water,  brush over with olive oil, put in a  dripping pan which has been brushed  over"with'olive oil, sprinkle with salt,  pepper���������and^ finely- chopped-_ parsley,  and bake in a moderate oven. ���������  Cucumber Ribbons are very much  more attractive than sliced cucumbers. ' Cut a thick slice from both ends  of cucumbers, and pare; then cut in  one-thlrd-inch slices. Cut the slices  round and round to form ribbons, using a small, sharp vegetable knife.  Plunge into iced or very cold water,  and let stand thirty minutes. Drain  and pour over a French dressing made  by mixing one-half teaspoonful of salt,  one-fourth of a teaspoonful of pepper,  three tablespoonfuls of vinegar and  three tablespoonfuls of olive oil.  Sliced cucumbers require less time  than cucumber ribbons and are very  pretty if one plays a little trick with  the vegetable in this fashion: After  a cucumber is pared, draw, a three-  tined fork its entire length, and so  continue until small cuts have been  made around the cucumber; then.cut  in thin slices. By this use of the fork  the slices have a cut edge which is a  novelty to many, and I have seen people who wondered how it could be  quickly accomplished. They presumed each piece was dealt with separately, an operation which would involve too much time to make it appeal to the practical.  Chicken always furnishes a satisfactory central dish for an Easter dinner. A recipe for Chicken Paprika  reached me last fall which.I feel quite  sure is new to most of my readers.  Dress and clean two chickens, cut in  pieces for serving, wipe with a piece  of cheese cloth wrung out of cold  water, and sprinkle with salt and. pepper. Fry one-half cupful; of finely  chopped onion in four and one-half  tablespoonfuls of butter fifteen minutes, stirring frequently, that the  onions may not burn. Add chicken,  and sprinkle witli four and one-half  tablespoonfuls of flour; then add one  *~>^*HHf������H-������H-^**4^ ^^H*^-^-^X--H--:-^^-H^^H^H,I''t"l?  SPRING GOODS  SPRING STYLES  i.  teaspoonful of paprika and one and  one-half cupfuls of chicken stock.  Cook on top of the range twenty minutes, put in a casserole dish, and cook  in oven until the chicken is tender,  adding more stock if necessary. 1  think all my readers know that in  speaking of chicken stock I mean the  liquor in which a fowl has been cooked. Of course, if one does not own a  casserole dish, she need not be 'de--'  barred from introducing this chicken  with her menu, for any earthenware  dish may be used in its stead. Chicken paprika may be served on a bed,  or, as chefs say, on a socle of hominy,  .ind garnished with spring croquettes.  When lioiniuy is used for such a purpose if is well to cook it using one-  half milk and one-half water.  Spring Croquettes conVblne potatoeF  and spinach in a- novel way.    Wash,  ,)are, and cook potatoes in boiling salted  water to cover;   drain, and force  through a potato ricer;  there should  be two cupfuls.   Add two and onchalf  j tablespoonfuls of butter, the" yolks of  /two eggs slightly   beaten,   and   one-  ; fourth of a cupful of finely chopped  cooked spinach.    Mix thoroughly, ana  season with salt and pepper.   "Shape  in the form of croquettes to represent  eggs, dip in  flour, egg and crumbs,  fry in deep fat, and drain on brown  paper.  Spinach will keep, its green color if  cooked in an uncovered vessel in a  large quantity of boiling water to  which salt, powdered sugar and soda  are added. Half, a peck of spinach  requires two quarts of water, one-half  tablespoonful of salt,, one-half . teaspoonful of sugar and one-fourth of a  teaspoonful of soda.'  A Grapefruit Salad 1b very refreshing for a dinner. .In the salad which  I offer as an illustration the grapefruit pulp is arranged on artichoke  bottoms, which are bought ln cans.  This part of the salad may be dispensed with if one so desires, but if  one cares for the novelty of it, let  me go into detail. Cook canned artichoke bottoms in chicken stock to  cover ten minutes; drain, cool, marinate with French dressing, cover, and  let stand one hour. Arrange on small  nests of crisp lettuce leaves, and  mound with grapefruit pulp which has  also been thoroughly chilled and marinated with French dressing. Pour  over all a French dressing, and garnish with strips of red pepper, xn  the dressing on this salad use red  wine vinegar and paprika.  -There can be no daintier conceit to  pass with a salad course than Toasted  Fromage Rolls. Cut fresh bread while  still warm in as thin slices as possible,  using, a very sharp knife; then remove crusts. Work butter until  creamy, using a wooden spoon;' then  add an equal quantity ofVcream cheese  that has been worked until creamy;  mix thoroughly, and season sparingly  with salt. Spread slices of bread evenly with the creamed mixture, and roll  slices separately; toast, and arrange  on a plate covered with a paper doily.  Lace paper doilies are so attractive  and so inexpensive that it seems a  shame not ��������� to' have them in every  household. I presume they- are not  for sale in small towns, but may be  bought of any large, first-class city  grocer. N  .. _ A Bavarian Panacne is a somewhat  elaborate dessert, the notion for which  came from a Swiss town. First let us  consider the Jelly roll which forms  the outside. For a Jelly Roll, beat the  yolks of four eggs until thick and  lemon colored, then, add, gradually,  while beating constantly, one cupful  of sugar, and beat two minutes. Puf  one. and one-half) ta.blespoonfuls of  corn starch into a cup, and fill the cup  with pastry flour once sifted. Mix  and sift flour and corn starch with  one and one-fourth teaspoonfuls of  baking powder and one-fourth of a  teaspoonful of salt. Add three tablespoonfuls of cold water tp the egg mixture, then add the flour mixture, and  mix thoroughly. Add the whites - of  four eggs beaten until stiff and one  teaspoonful of lemon extract. Butter  ��������� dripping, pan, and line bottom and  ends with paraffine or tissue paper.  Put in the mixture, spread evenly, and  bake in a moderate oven. Remove  from the pan to a cloth sprinkled  sparingly with confectioners', sugar,  spread with currant jelly, trim oft* the  sides and ends of cake with a sharp  knife, and roll as quickly as possible.  Line a charlotte russe mold with thin  slices of jelly roll, fill with;. strawberry Bavarian cream", and chill.  For' the Strawberry Bavarian  Cream, soak two tablespoonfuls of  granulated gelatine in one-fourth of  a cupful of cold water, and dissolve  in one-third of a cupful of boiling  water; then add one cupful of strawberry sirup, a few grains of salt, and  sugar to' taste if not sweet enough.  I'obtain strawberry sirup from the  best brand of canned strawberries at  my command, and get a most satisfactory product for a moderate price.  When the strawberry mixture begins,  to thicken, fold in,the whip from one  pint of thin, cream, and turn into the  mold. ' a  For a Stylish, up-to-date  .

Still, many  good housewives of limited means cannot get away from the idea that the  best parlor and the guest room must  receive first consideration in the expenditure, and that the kitchen must  put up with what it can get. Instead  of putting the kitchen last on the list,  suppose for once it should come flrot  in the spring outlay for renovation.  Once it is fitted up properly, it will  need only a little renewal from year  to year if the utensils and furnishings  are well cared for.  For.the finishing of the kitchen  walls paint is satisfactory, or an imitation tile paper in some soft light  tone that will look cheerful. To make  the room cheerful looking should be  the "guiding idea in the decoration' of  the kitchen. Two or three small washable mats, woven of cotton rags, may  be placed over the linoleum, covered  or painted floor to make it more comfortable to the feet, where one has to  stand a good deal, as in front of the  table. The sash curtains of muslin or  dimity should be so arranged that they  can be drawn back altogether on dull  days to let in all the light possible. A  reliable clock, n calendar, and a slate  and pencil or writing pad and lead  pencil for jotting down marketing re  minders, should find, convenient plq  on the wall.   There should be twe  three chairs, one of them an easy  but little in tbe way of furniture a]|  from the stove or range, tables,  required for.the primary work of 1  kitchen.    Where  space  is limited  hinged board covered with white]  cloth, that can be let down flat agal  the wall when not in use, can take/  place of one table.'   A built-in  board, with upper and lower secty  is worth contriving,, even at the  of letting the "best" rooms go  out extra attention  for one sp*  The tireless cooker is a saver of'  that is appreciated; especially injj  hot. weather. ; /  The list of kitchen utensils gi  larger every year, as   ney/   coif  iencea are devised.

A minister a man of great vigor  and > vehemence, while preaching one  Sunday, bent forward and shouted out  with great force the words of his text:  "The righteous shall stand, but the  wicked shall fall."  Just as these words escaped from  his lips the pulpit broke from its fastenings, and he fell out and rolled before his congregation. Picking himself up he said:  "Brethren, I am not hurt, and I don't  mind the fall, but I dp hate the connection,"  MUCH  TOO GOOD.  firi  CURED WITHOUT-MEDICINE.

No matter how difficult  our, position, It is our place of trust.  There is nothing bo inspiriting as'being trusted. It makes us try to carry  out the wishes of tbe one.who trusts  us to the r best of our ability, because-  he selected us to-carry out some work  that he thought no one else could do  as well. If, then, we feel an earthly;  trust i?o important, how much more  serious is the trust God has given us  to work out for Him? A sentry on  duty at the time of war is responsible  for the safety of many lives. .It does  not sound a very "difficult order to tell  him. to watch. But if he falls asleep  or fails in that one point, the enemy  may stealthily approach and destroy  every one in his camp. So it is with  our lives.
