LAND POLICY  The FARMERS' VIEW     .CANADIAN CANALS  N&Kf  5>  7  WERN JESUITISM  There has been considerable adverse criticism  ���������of the Provincial Government's recent order-in-  council re price of Provincial lands. It is well to  note, however, that most of the complaints are  being made by those interested in the purchase of  large tracts of land for speculative purposes. We  have but little sympathy for any person or company whose chief complaint is a shoe,k to their  speculative ambitions. It is true all should be  treated alike, and we are entirely in accord with  the demand that all who have proceeded under the  terms of the "Land Act'* should have fair and  equitable treatment, and no doubt when applications are made a fair adjustment will be arrived  at. It should be borne in mind, however, that it ���������  is impossible tb make a change, such as the one,  recently made by the Government, without someone being hit.  .The "Land Act" is a farce in any case, and in  our mind one of the weakest pieces of legislation  in existence. Under its provision a syndicate or a  company may get the names of as many persons  as they please and send out men to' stake a section  for each name.' then get an /assignment of the'  rights of the staker and thus'secure control of  ���������wftole valleys or districts, which they then proceed  to sell to bona-fide settle ra. at an< enhancedvalue.  The intention of the act was to prevent that precise' condition, but for years there has been this  flagrant circumvention of the act, and with the  full knowledge of the Government. For this and  for the weakeuess of thelarid ptflicy we /would '  take the Government to task, but not because they  have jarred a few land-sharks. s ���������    /  "We should have in B.

We  cannot cease expressing our admiration of the  patriotic and statesmanlike way in which the Liberal and Conservative members acted in the deal.  There was no petty quarrelling; no sparing for  party advantage; no long-winded speeches for the  benefit of their faithful followers.   The fact that  these men were simply 'casting their pearls before '  swine' to give six weeks-work for $1000 was ap- J  parent tb the dullest one among them.   Then of  course there was the usual, suit case grab that is  pulled off at the first session of every new legislature.   Our readers probably are not aware that <  each one of the members got away with a handsome suit case at the1 expense of the people.   It's  a wpnder they don't provide themselves each with  an automobile..  Probably they will get to that -  soon.   Ordinarily political parties in the legislature, of Manitoba oppose each other.   When they  do occasionally agree it is upon some, great crisis  or upon some trivial matter.  Now, the salary grab '  "was a great question of national importance.   It,..  was the greatest effort of the sessionand no party ,  bickerings could be allowed.   Even the most rabid  of party politicians can agree unanimously vrhen  .  the greatest of all questions���������their personal pockets-rare under discussion.' But when any little -  question such as the welfare of the citizens of the  m The statistical report of the Deputy Minister of  Railways regarding Canadian Canals is before us  and is a most interesting document and a thoroughly reliable basis from which tb view the'progress of Canadian trade. >  In 1901 the total tonnage through our canals  was o.boo,2t>y tons.   In 1910 this was increased to  42.990,608 tons, or an increase in ten years of  over 700 per cent.   This, of course, is largely due-  to the remarkable development of the Canadian^  West. " v' .   4.  The wheat trade, of course,' has increased to  a remarkable degree.'In 1901 there passed through'  the; canals 9,639,o34 bushels, this' increased in 1910 .  to;51,774,833 bushels.   Of course -the"Soo" has  the .heaviest traffic, carrying 84%er( cent, of the  total canal traffic.   Another interesting point is .  tyafover 87 per cent.^of the tonnage was east-  bound, consisting chiefly, of minerals and wheat.  ' A point of great significance js that although  !_ freight rates to Montreal were three-quarters to  " ope-and a half, cents per bushel'less than to New  ,(By. Professor Odium.)  %'Tr  In the March number of "The Truth," which  is published in Jerusalem by Solomon Feingold, is  to be found a very interesting article on "Modem  Jerusalem." He is-the introduction of the article  and a list of religionists therein given. One is  amazed at the whims) philosophies a^d religious  sentiments of humanity.  /,'Jerusalem, like Noah's/Ark, contains within  its prescribed limits a heterogeneous multitude of  creatures, clean and unclean.''

The Western Canada Power Company,^successors to the Stave Lake Power Company, are asking  .[ the city for another extension of their franchise.  The original franchise was granted in 1901, and  the request for an extension at this time is virtually giving the company a franchise in 1911 on  terms and conditions which obtained in 1901.  [This is a distinct advantage to the company, as  I conditions  have   greatly   changed, ,both   as   to  methods of carrying on the electrical business and  t in the possibilities of the city.  We are quite prepared to grant that the Stave  l\Lake Company have done much work in estab-  lishihg"tbeir plant, but_we also contend tbat, as  ��������� they have failed to keep their agreement with  the city, it is quite competent for the city to amend  the agreement as they may see fit.   Sir Charles  >Hihbert Tupper, acting for the company, contends  that the city should not take advantage of this  situation, but shoulcT simply extend the agreement  las it is.  There are several points in the agreement which  should be carefully considered; first, there is a  clause in the old agreement which prohibits the  companv  from-amalgamating  with  the  B.  C.  (Electric, but it does not forbid the company from  entering into a contract with the B. C. Electric  ���������ito supply them with all the power generated.. It  lis certainly in the interests of the city that these  iHwo corporations should not be combined, directly  or indirectly, therefore a clause should be inserted  prohibiting the Stave Lake company..from selling  ^ power to the B. a-Electric except after all the  demands of the city and private concerns are supplied.   And further, a price should be fixed which  is reasonable, and not, as in the original agree-  f ment, simply the same as that charged by the  B; C: Electric.     ^ ' y  Another point  is  the   privilege  to  enter  on  'streets/etc   We believe this right should be rigidr  ly guarded.    The company agree, i^ is true, to  Slace their wires underground "when other companies do the same."   This is absurd.   We find  1 it impossible to control the B. C. Electric, and why  [should we give same liberty to other companie^.  The old agreement contains a clause providing  [for a minimum charge of $2 per month and meter,  frent of 20 cents per monthY this charge should  jbe struck out and only where the consumption is  'less'than 50. cents per month "should:'the,meter be  [charged for.  Then, again, the agreement is for 50 years,  [which is quite a long time and should be made  [much shorter.  This application raises the whole question of a  [municipal power and lighting plant. This city  [should"' make provision for such a plant, and in  [granting a franchise to this company an oppor-  [tunity is given to make such an arrangement.  Both the Canadian and American Houses are  debating the reciprocity agreement, and in bo*th~  countries there is keen opposition, which fact  would suggest to the student of political economy  the question, "What is at the bottom of the movement?"  It is vain for those who see some commercial  advantage in the agreement to laugh at the senti-'  mental and patriotic view, because, after all, that  is the final view which must he taken of all questions if we are to have anything approaching  Kermanence in our national affairs. There may  e (f) some slight immediate advantage to certain  classes of industries, but this would be a large  price to pay, unless there was to be some permanent result mutually beneficial.  Annexation is undoubtedly the^ object that Taft  has in viewTahcTtbis is shared by thousands of his  fellow-citizens. They think that all they have to  do is to suggest it and we in Canada will grasp  at the chance. To tbe true Imperialist this is an  impossibility. l  There seems to be only one basis upon which  we can discuss this question of reciprocity and  that is the broad scheme of Anglo-Saxon alliance,  defensive and offensive, with free -trade throughout the Empire and the United States. Reciprocity  between Canada and America is suicidal to both,  but an Anglo-American alliance would ^ensure the  peace of the world to the distinct ^advantage of  both nations.  in length, with a difference in level between the  St. Lawrence and Lake Superior of 600 feet.  , \ -.  1 (  The Dominion canals, contracted between Montreal and Lake Superior/are the Lachine, Soulan-  ��������� ges, Cornwall, Farran's Point, Rapide Plat, Galops  1 Murray, -Welland,. and Sault SteT Marie. * Tlieir  aggregate length is 73 miles; total lockage Cor  ocean navigation, to the head of JLake Superior  is 48. The Soulanges canal takes the place of the  Beauharnois canal; the latter may,be abandoned  for navigation purposes.  Communication between Lakes Huron and Su-  gerior is obtained by means of the Canadian Stulat  te. Marie canal, and also hy the St. Mary's canal,  situated, on the United States side of the River  St. Mary.  Both these canals are free of toll.  It is important to not that the enlargement of  the canals on the main route between; Montreal  and Lake Erie comprises loclcs of' the following *  minimum dimensions: Length, 270 feet;, width,  43 feet; depth of water on sills, 14 feet. The  length of the vessels to be accommodated is limit-.  ed to 255 feet. At Farran's, in the canal of that  name, the lock is 800 feet long. A similar, lock is  buit at Iroquois on the Galops canal, the object  being to pass a full tow at one lockage.  "  NO QUARTO" FOR WB4T TRUST.  AH0T9BE YICTM.  "It is cheaper to pay damages than to protect  the public by using proper fenders." This seems  to be the policy bf the B. C. Electric Railway company,   i .  On Tuesday evening a lad', Thomas Foran, 12  years old, was run over by a B.C. Electric freight  train on Park drive.  These huge cumbersome cars run along our  main streets, sometimes at a very'nigh speed, without any fenders. We repeat without a fender,  for the apparatus used on the front of these cars  is worse than nothing. In fact, they constitute a  sure means of rolling the body under the wheels.  We have repeatedly attacked the company for  its barbarous practice of running cars without  adequate fenders, and only wish that we were able  to so rouse public sentiment that Vancouver citizens would take the same action as Toronto citizens .did. When the company operating in that  city ignored public sentiment they simply mobbed  the cars and smashed them up. Tlf the; B.C. Electric refuse to protect the public then the public  have the right to protect themselves.  The company promised the city council about  one year ago to equip all their cars with proper  fenders, but. as is usual, they have broken their  promise, and in our opinion never intended to  keep it, but simply laughed up their sleeve at the  city and its'demands. '  Citizens, we are paying in precious lives the  price of the carelessness of the company. Shall  we tolerate such treatment? Or are we going to  insist on reasonable protection?  Melborne.���������For several months past it has been  an open secret that representatives of the United  States Meat Trust have been visiting Australia  with the ostensible object of extending its operations to this part of the world. The Minister for'  Customs (the Hon. F. G. Tudor) said that the  -Commonwealth Government was determined to  take immediate and drastic, actions to discourage  and, if-necessary, prohibit *jts operations in Australia. It was not proposed to wait until the  combine secured vested interests in this country,  and he was already in communication with the  attorney-general with a view to bringing the full  force of the present l*w into ���������Deration, and, if  necessary, obtaining further and more effective  legislation for the purpose. There would be no  difficulty in this ,since, apart from the producers  and the industry generally, every householderv in  the community was interested in opposing the advance of a meat monopoly. "It is a. question of  'no quarter' for the monopoly," #rid Mr. Tudor.  TBI CORONATION.  * The full "Form and Order?' of the Coronation  Service has been issued by command of the King.  It embraces all the time-honored and impressive  rites, and with its minute directions, in language  which is at times almost archaic, it is exceedingly  impressive.    Among the interesting, point to be  noted is one in- corinection with, the oblation of  the sword at the altar:���������"The Peer," says the  Form and Order, "who first received the sword  shall offer the price of it, namely, 100s., and having thus redeemed it, shall receive it from the  Dean of Westminster from off the altar, and draw  it out of the scabbard and carry it naked before  his Majesty during the rest of the solemnity."  When the crown has beent placed on the King's  head, "the people, with loud and repeated shouts,;  shall cry, God save the King; the .Peers and the  Kings of Arms shall put on their, cbrorets; and the  trumpets shall sound, and by ai signal given, the  great guns at the Tower shall be shot off."

I wonder how long that queer man  will remain in Salme.  A Mormon, on being querried as to the cause  of his appearing in the historic city, made answer  as follows: "I came to Jerusalem to expose the  errors of Pseudo-Mormonism which has disgraced  Christianity by its licentious, bigamous practices.  ���������I intend to found in this city of the Lord a Church  of Latter Day Saints." I wonder who will help  him to show that the whole proposition needs to  be greatly recast.  The writer gives a glowing picture of the fierce  rivalries, fanaticisms, hates, and defamings cast  forth by each and all-at the balance,~as if only  one were right and the rest terribly wicked.  The editor in another number of Truth says:  "Jerusalem is the centre of schism, scandal-mong-  ery, revelry, covetousness, envy hatred, and party  strife." Then the question, is asked: "How is  it that the mist of zealotism is so thick that western civilization with all its radium and X-rays is  powerless to penetrate its density?"  "How is it that instead of progressing and becoming a model city of righteousness, wisdom,  commerce and prosperity, it is now considered by  'all the world as a spot only fit for moral and  physical lepers?" What is the cause of this awful anathema that rests upon the metropolis which  once the Creator of the Universe honored by the  presence of His ambassadors?"' The above questions are from a correspondent who signs himself  Y.-Z. - .y.y-        k ~������ 7  y  The editor very caustically makes the following reply:   .        Y  "O,. son of man thou dost not well to blame  Jerusalem, it is the dwellers therein that pollute  her . ������������������-, . c- "Can an edifice endure when each  of its stones is fighting for prominence? Can a  company prosper when its members are plotting  and conspiring against each other? Can a vehicle  advance rapidly when its' horses are pulling in different direction?"  The population of Jerusalem is between 80,000  and 100,000, and the nationalities represented  therein are almostYas numerous'.as there are on  each. .The diplomats therein are as. much and  fiercely at loggerheads as are the religionists and  non-religionists.   Company promotion is in a most  7 deplorable state. Germany, Turkey, Russia,  Greece, Austria, Italy, France, England and most  other nations have their patriotic financial representatives to add to this boiling pot-full of troubles. However, this too must pass away, for a better day Js coming to Jerusalem, if Holy Scriptures  tell truth about this historic capital of the ancient  Jews, the most wonderful people in the history of  mankind. 7  ���������y Vancouver, B.

WOMAN  *  It is gratifying to read and hear of  the increasing interest of influential  and intellectual men in the political  freedom of woman. Abraham Lincoln  was a wise and large-visioned man,  and it's well to remember that he  said: "I go for all sharing the privileges, of the government who assist in  bearing its burdens, by no means excluding women." Says Theodore Roosevelt: "I believe in the rights of the  woman just as much as I do in those  of the man, and indeed, a little moje.  She can do the best work in her home  if she, has healthy outside interests  and occupations in addition." Again,  D. M. Valentine, Justice Supreme  Court, Kansas, says: "The women's  votes have generally been cast in favor  of good offices and good government."  Prom Hon. Samuel jyBarrows, National Prison Commissioner, comes the  following: "If police and prison mean  anything, tbey mean tbat, considered  aa law-abiding citltens, women are ten  times aa good as men. Whilst we cannot go quite aa far as Dr. C. P. Aked,  of New York, who went on record recently for woman suffrage, still there  is a truth in his assertion that 'As a  Chrl8tian*minlster, I can say that I believe that to give women the franchise  would bring as great a blessing to the  world as the coming of Christ'."  F; B. H.  wine, for "Wine is a mocker, strong  drink is raging, and whosoever is deceived thereby is not'wise." The people of Fresno County, Calif., became  so enthusiastic over their victory for  temperance that they attempted; to  have April 30 of last year set apart as  ''Raisin Day," when every one in the  country, from, the President down,  would be asked to eat raisins. Abig  advertising scheme was carried on to  boost this nation-wide campaign. The  liquor trust planned a boyc6tt on the  raisins of this county in Calfornia, because the people voted out the saloons.  This is a~ typical case of the fight  which is now oh in this-country between the forces of temperance and  the forces of the liquor traffic. Fresno  county wanted to raise and sell more  raisins and less wine, more food and  less crime for the United States. Every boy can be a volunteer in the  fight.

Shall;the grain and fruit of thia nation be used for good, healthful food,  to build up strong and athletic human  bodies, or shall these wonderful products of the earth be manufactured  into Intoxicating liquors-to polion our  bodies and minds? This ia a burning  question for our nation, and when we  aee a field of grain, or a vineyard, or  fruit orchard, we can aak thia/question, "Rum or raiaina?" "Bread, or  beer?" I saw some time ago the immense fruit rancher of California. "On  one great ranch I aaw on* of the biggest casks in the world. It held thousands of gallons of wine. And the cellar was filled with thousands of bot-  There are personal habits tending  to good health that every boy should  aim to acquire. One of these is good  posture, because without good posture  the lungs and digestive organs, and  often the spine, are liable to serious  injury by the daily work. When sitting, sit well back (in the seat, and  with the body erect, not bent 'over,  not twisted to one side, nor with the  hands placed behind the back nor on  the head. In reading the eyea should,  be at least ten' or better, fourteen  inches from the book.  In the standing position, the eyes  should be forward, the chin held In,  the chest out, and the weight thrown  forward on the balls of the feet.  The following are splendid habits���������  hygenic habits���������to be formed at home  by the boy:  1.   Rising as soon as he awakes.  - 1.   Going through some deep breathing exercise morning and night. ,  S. Proper habits as to washing and  bathing, use of the towel and use of  the tooth brush.  4. The proper mastication of food,  teeth, but use~them in getting the food  *eady for the digestive organs. Read  Fletcher on how to chew food.  5. The systematic use bf time before and after school.  Don't forget to  ties of wine which would be sold all  over the world.   The owner of this set aside some for play in the fresh  ranch was turning all of his delicious clusters of grapes into wine and  champagnes; and unconsciously, perhaps, he was supplying the temptation  to ruin thousands of boys and yourij;  men. I' visited other ranches where  the owners were turning their delicious grapes into raisins. When Christmas and other holidays come, the boys  and girls can feast on: the fruit and  raisins with safety. At night the owner of a ranch, who converts hit grapes  into raisins, should have sounder  sleep than the ranchman who manufactures wins and champagne to ruin  temperance sentiment and temperance  legislation swooping over this coup.;  try, which should bring joy to all lovers of our country. Many states and  counties and towns are voting "dry".  Some time ago Fresno, Calif.,' a dry  town of 30,000 inhabitants, had an  election, and the temperance issue was  at the forefront. Fresno is located in  the greatest grape growing centre in  the, UnitedStates, ifjaqt In the ^ ^(L  with over 100,000 acres in grape.-iies.  But in this centre of grape culture the  people saw the;evils of intemperance,  and they arose in their might and voted out the saloons by a small majority  of only fifty-seven votes. But it was  one of the most hotly-contested elections ever held in the city.. The' total  number of voters was 3,585, and,the  air, so much for lessons and so much  for reading.  Habits of this kind not only promote  health, but giye strong character. They  make the boy grow Into manhood, full  of vitality, ready to fill any position,  capable ot doing all kinds of work, a  credit to his parents, and a great  satisfaction to himself.

DRUNKENNES8.  , It is coming to be recognized as ,one  of the facts of science that the use of  alcoholic'drinks is unfriendly to men's  best interests. The. reason why drinking is wrong is that it unfits men for  doing and being their best; if it were  otherwise, it would be right. Alcohol  Ib a stimulant which whips up, the physical powers for the time being,'and  then leaves them thaf much depleted;  it uses up the reserve strength which,  every man needs. It also tends to a  breaking down of particular organs of  he body, such as the stomach,,the liver  the brain. The latter organ it affects  in such a way that, on the one hand,  the mind, -which dwells in the brain,  cannot see things.as they are, so that  the engineer for instance, misjudges as  to the .situation,ahead and what needs  to be.done; and on the other hand, it  gives an unsteady hand or toot for  one's task, so that the skill is gone  from the hand, and the foot staggers  on the sidewalk. Moreover, while at  first it seems to be doing but little  if any harm, it creates a. growing appetite, which demands more and more  of it ln order, to be satisfied. For these  scientific reason's business men and  corporations will not hire drinking  men.  BEAUTIFUL WORD8.  Of twenty-five words selected by a  New York authority as entries in a  contest to determine the most beautiful words in the English language  three were, rejected, the other twenty  two being accepted as winning the  prize.   "Grace" was barred because ol  e hardness ofthe "g"; "justice" foi  the harshness of the "j"; and "truth'  on account of its metallic sound.'  "Virtue," "melody," "splendor," "adoration," "modesty," juid "harmony"  Were on the list.  An Italian ls authority for the statement that we have in the English language two words which, when joined,  have a beauty unequalled by any  phrase in the Italian tongue. These  beautiful words are "cellar door."  Forgetting their significance and preserving merely their sound, the Italian finds supporters.  RECESSIONAL.  (In Toronto Sun).

STUDYING THE INDIANS.  Dr. F. G. Speck, of the University  of Pennsylvania, has a unique method  of studying the North American Indians. He catches their language and  songs by phonograph., He spent last  summer with the Penobscot tribe, by  whom he is greatly esteemed, because  he can "make their voices talk again."  He has collected, on records, over 200  Indian songs, thus bringing the number in the museum up to 500. ,  He says: "I can whistle the air of  some song to an Indian and h'e will  recognize it, but if I attempt to harmonize the,melody by-adding the bass'  the natives cannot recognize-it. All  Indian music is in the same state that  European melody was in the Middle  Ages." ' ������������������>-'< '���������."���������'-.

Montreal, April 17.���������^Plans are now  under way and-are likely .soon tb be  adopted  which -provide  virtually  for^  the remaking of Montreal as a port.  Commissions composed of 'engineers  and harbor officials have been studying for a long time the problem    of  providing for the more efficient    and  economical handling   of the   tremendous commerce which .centrss in this  city and which has made it one of the  finest  ports  in  the  world.    This  Investigation has resulted this week ir.  the submission of two reports.   While  these differ in details, they are ali*e  in essential particulars and both pro  vide for the practical rebuilding    of  the entire waterfront.   The plan generally, favored provides for   the   replacing ���������ot--thj^ -antiquated--surface  tracks over which    freight    is   now/  hauled along- the' river front   by   an  elevated    road    to   be   devoted    exclusively to the handling   of   freight  and to have surface ripurs connecting  with-all piers.   Back of the road is to  rise a solid row of giant warehouses,  connected with the railway at the second story level.   By this means communication between any part of the  waterfront and every "other par^ will  be direct and convenient, and it ls estimated  that the cost    of -handling  freight will be reduced forty per cent.  The. great system of giant, terminals  will make a striking change in the appearance of the  city, and. it .lis.'expected that the cost of the improvements contemplated will be. $10,000,-  000 or more, most of which, however,  will be expended by private capital In  the   construction   of    the    terminal  warehouses.  Word that the Mexican Government  has at last decided to resort to active  measures for the suppression of the  rebel forces is received with rejoicing  here, for Canada is more than incidentally interested in the welfare of  the little republic Large amounts of  Canadian money have been   invested  in. Mexico of .late years.and have always brought rarge.returns.     Some'  people lately may have been worrying  about baying their money invested in  a country where . there   is    internal  strife, but their fears, for the most  part? -seem to be- groundless, for no-  2���������Western Call��������� W C J        , -up   on.  thing short of a   national    calamity  could affect their assets.

The .mahogany, standing green as it  does, will not burn (a danger that is  always foremost in Canadian timber  ventures) and the   business   of . the  company has gone on oblivious to any  disturbances.

Japan is taking an increased interest  in aerial navigation. Recently special  officers were despatched to study the  science of navigating . airships and  aeroplans in France. The government  has bought four aeroplanes', and the  brightest young men of the land are  experimenting with them, though no  great skill'has yet been developed. A  young man of Tokyo named Yamada  has invented an airship, but it has no  new ideas to give it the claim of distinction, most of its parts being copies  of machines seen in other countries.  Whether the much talked of harem  skirt is to become the. leading feature  in the city's summer feminine " costumes remains to be seen. Meantime  it is likely to become a political issue,  the subject of police rules, traffic regulations and a cause of excitement  in many "other ways. Already several  minor officials have been called upon  to declare their attftude- regarding  this form of dress. Its appearance on  the street is sufficient to collect a  crowd of proportions great enough to  block all traffic, and the problem ha*  arisen as to how the matter shall be  handled. One member of the police  force, when called to explain why he  had not arrested the wearer ot the  harem skirt who had attracted such a  crowd as to block temporarily the  passage of fire engines, answered that  he-did not know that it was a misdemeanor to appear in such a costume  and that he would rather lose his job  than be seen making such an arrest,  anyhow.    leather Knickerbocker'may  To Regulate Vice.

The task of counting  photographing them is now in  gress atJaoout twenty-five observatories in different parts of the world.  Greenwich has now photographed and  mapped out the sections which,-under  the scheme, We allotted, to it. Many,  of the stars thus catalogued are Invisible, not only to the human eye,1  but also to the eye aided by a powerful telescope. However, they appear  distinctly on ihe photographic plate.  This phenomenon is explained by  the fact that ln a certain kind of telescope a plate may be exposed to the  heavens for six hours or longer,  whereas ah' observer cannot keep his  eye closely on one spot for more thsn  half or three-quarteis of an hour; thus  the camera, in conjunction with the  improved telescope, sees more than  the observer can.  u ���������  NEWS   AND   VIEWS   OF   STENOGRAPHERS.

Y       '  Night Orders promptly attenJe   to.  Easter, wit., its delightful revelations  ot spring fashions, its'bewildering surprises and spectacular displays is rapidly approaching and me fashion shops  are overflowing with the most tempting and enchanting displays of feminine finery for the bonnie Eastertide.  Judging from the gorgeous exhibitions  in the large shops, the coming Easter  parade will be a thing to be remembered. '  A survey of the situation shows that'  one-piece dresses hold the- first position among spring tashions. Except  for the lingerie frocks, most of these  are elaborate garments, suited for eve-  ing and dressy aftcrcoou -;czi\ Sir.;?  Ier gowns are seen in serge, panaraa,  satiu, crepe, voile, marquisette, cballis  and foulard. These fabrics arc capable' of every modification from :i siir.-  ple and inconspicuous walking dress to  an elaborate robe for evening vcar.  Black and  white combination    are  Eggs in a Nest.  Cook six eggs twenty minutes in  water just below the boiling point.  Pen minutes' cooking makes the yolk  tough and indigestible; twice the  aiiiouui makes it dry and mealy. Re  move the shells and separate the  yolks, work them to a smooth paste  with a little melted butter to moisten,  and form into small balls. Cut the  whites in thin narrow slices, and mix  them with an equal quantity of cold  ham separated into shreds, and a  tablespoonful of fine sprigs of parsley. Put the mixture together lightly  with a fork, pile it in a circle like a  aost, on a platter, and arrange the  3-oIk balls in the centre. Set the plaL  ter over a steamer to heat the eggs:  Hake a pint of thick white sauce, from  milk, butter, and flour coked together  and seasoned with salt and pepper.  Pour enough of the sauce, on the platter to come half way up the nest, and  serve the remainder in a sauce boat.  Egg Balls In Cups., ,    ,  Boil some eggs twenty minutes.

Red Is little seen except as trimming' touches on dark-  toned models, and other bright colors  are used n .the same way.  In nearly all the new suits the t&-  vored trimming is braid, especially the  wide braid, which sometimes forius the  collars, cuffs and revers, and trims the  skirt as well. Panels of braid coming  down the front and back of the jacket,  and continued in the same way on the  skirt, are distinctly the thing. Marrow  braid is also very smart, especially  when worked out in ornamental designs on the skirt and coat. A touch  of color is added by oriental embroidery on the collar, sleeves and revers.  There is merely a hint of this, and it  is not allowed to become too prominent in the color scheme. Buttons are  -also..very, much In evidence, some of  then^of tho same color as either the  suit or the trimming, or- as both, and  some ot them silver or gilt. These  latter are very small, quite tiny in  tact. In general, however;-" the new  suits, except the elaborate satin ones,  are rather plain,, comparatively little  trimming ot any sort, outside of braid,  being seen..  Handwork is the dominant- note on  many of the spring models of blouses:  Voile and marquisette are, perhaps, the  newest forms in which lingerie blouses  appear. ' The. cool durability of the  open-mes.. fabrics is' appealing to the  one who is planning an outfit for summer wear. Most of the new blouses  are ot the simplest styles. The kimono blouse is the pattern most general.  ly used. It is made collarless for those  who have pretty throats and the courage of their convictions. This same  type . can be worn with '��������� adjustable  guimpes. \  French knots are another effective  way to decorate the spring and summer blouses. They wash easily and  are readily made .by the amateur. Another idea on the same line is the mak.  ing of loops of colored thread. Both  French knots and the loops can be  grouped! to fill spaces that^ are outlin-  THE CHANGE.  Before she went to boardin* school she  useter romp an' play,  She druv the cows up from the field  an' helped take in the hay,  But she don't do that any more, because of this, you see���������  She went away as Mary Jane an'  came back Jeanne Marie.  She useter  wear  made-over  clothes,  an' always with a smile,  But now her dresses every one must  be the latest style/  She don't ride'bareback any more, nor  climb the apple tree���������  She  went  away  as   Mary   Jane,  but  ��������� come back. Jeanne Marie.  Her hair is all in crinkles now���������she  calls -'em Marshal waves;  She's up in all the etiquette, real  'stylish Bhe behaves.  Her ma and me are mighty proud o'  all she's learned���������but gee,  "We sometimes wish for Mary Jane  instid o* Jeanne Marie!  ed to represent petals of large flowers. This effect, tuat, after all, is an  imitation of bead work, leads us* to the  mode of decoration that promises to  be more popular than ever during the  coming seasons. Wash beads are used,  and the' designs are worked out in Jap.  anese, French and Bulgarian embroidery. The combination of beadwork  with lace motifs is very pronounced.  Scarfs are more popular than ever  and semi-transparent coats and wraps  claiming close kinship with the scarfs  of chiffon and lace are being shown  in many attractive forms. Scarfs for  use with evening and house frocks'  are decorated with bead embroideries  and in the shops exquisite things are  shown in chiffon and in tulle with intricate bead embroidery finishing the  ends deeply and perhaps continuing in  a border along the sides. The effects  obtained are often charming and the  weight given by the beads drags the  scarf down into the clinging lines, favored by-many women.     : w 7  White beads on black chiffon or  black'tulle are ln favoryl-but beads of  steel, gold, jet and colors are also  lavishly used. Beautiful scarfs of fine  lace are always coveted and some of  the new ones in both real and imita:  ticn lace are yellowed to the tint of  old lace and would,deceive any save  an expert.  Stand upright, and cut in halves cross  wise." Take out the yolkq,.and stand  the cups thus formed of the whites on  a small, platter. Rub the yolks to a  '4 smooth paBte, adding an equal amount  of finely chopped cooked ham, a tablespoonful of melted butter, and pepper,  salt, and mustard to season. Make  into balls the size of egg yolks and fill  into the white cups. Set the platter  over a steamer to re-heat the eggs,  and garnish with a sprig of parsley  on each cup. .Serve with thick white  sauce.  , Eflfl* on Toast.  \ Remove the shells from six hard-  boiled eggs, chop tbe whites fine, and  put .them in a dish oyer hot water to  keep warm. Moisten -the yolks with  a couple of spoonfuls of melted butter,  and rub them to a smooth paste, adding a teaspoonful of corn starch, salt  to season/ and a dash of red pepper.  Mix the egg paste Into a large' cupful  of rich milk, and cook in a double boiler until the mixture thickens. Have  ready some nice slices of buttered  toaat on a platter. .Spread the yolk  mixture over ������he slices, sprinkle with  the chopped whites, and serve at once  while hot.  Stuffed Eggs.  Boil six eggs twenty minutes, remove the shells, and cut the eggs in  halves lengthwise. Take out the  yolks, and keep each pair ot white  halves by themselves. Mash tbe  yolks together with some minced  chicken, moisten slightly with melted  butter, and season to taste with salt,  pepper, mustard, and a dash ot cayenne. Fill the cavities in the whiteB  with the mixture, and press each pair  of halves together carefully to look  like an entire egg. Spread the remainder of the yolk mixture on a platter, arrange the eggs on it, cover with  a thin white sauce, sprinkle over with  buttered crumbs, and bake in the oven  until tbe crumbs are colored a light  brown. *  Variegated Egg Dish.  Served in this way the dish has a  pretty color effect. Allow a cup of  cooked- lean-ham,-.chopped 'fine, -to-six,  hard-boiled eggs. Cook a third of a  cup of stale bread crumbs with an  equal amount of milk to a smooth  paste. Remove from the stove, stir  in the ham,- season with half a teaspoonful of ready-mixed mustard and  a few grains of cayenne! and mix all  together well with a raw egg. Roll  the eggs, from which the shells have  been removed, in the mixture till tbey  are covered with it, bake them on a  buttered tin pan in a hot oven till  very lightly browned. Cut in halves  lengthwise, and arrange on a bed of  parsley on a platter.  Potatoes with'-Bacon.;���������This dish is  as delicious as it is simple. Slice cold  potatoes and place in a pan with salt  and a slight dredging of flour among  the slices. Pour in almost enough  milk to cover the potatoes. ' Cover  the top with small pieces of thin  bacon. 'Bake until the bacon has become crisp and brown.  Ham Salad.���������This is very easily  made by mixing together cold boiled  ham grated fine, chopped celery and  chopped walnuts. Add mayonnaise  dressing and serve in a dish lined with  lettuce leaves.  STUDYING FIRE8.

What is the first thing to do when  a bottle-fed baby "is taken with an  attack of summer diarrhoea and vomiting?- I -know you have told us before, but I have forgotten just what  you said, and would like to have directions to preserve in case of heed.  First of all stop all milk at once,  as this acts like a poison while the  child is suffering from diarrhoea.  Give one or two teaspoonfuls of  castor-oil to remove any irritating  matter that may be present, in the  intestines.   Give plenty of pure, c|  water that has been first boiled.,  child may take this from a    bott]  spoon, glass or medicine-dropper,  food'  give   the   albumin-water  tioned on this page if the baby to  much, or else give barley, wheat'  rice water, if the child can keep tht\  down.     To   make   these ^waters  gruels take one teaspoonful of  flour, mix it into a smooth paste  a little cool water; then add It to  pint of boiling  water which  haa.  pinch of salt in it, and boil for tw*  minutes, adding enough water at  end of that time to make up the  (for  some  will  have 7 boiled  awa]  strain and give to the child  in  nursing-bottle,    feeding    the:   pro  number of ounces for a baby of  age every two or three hours. YAs  child: grows a little better the gn]  may  be made  stronger.    The  step is to add a very little milk to:  gruels.    Usually one ounce of  to a pint of gruel may be taken,  little by r little, add more milk ul  the baby is again back on his orig  formula.   When milk is added  gruel it is.best to add.also some lil  water���������about one ounce of the li|  water for each twenty ounces of  food.   You should always call a  tor to see the baby as soon as  sible, but you should stop the  and give the castor-oil at once,  out waiting until he can arrive. ���������\  THE WESTERN CALL  [TORONTO  [FURNITURE   STORE  3334 Westminster Avenue.

Not long  ago' there was a candidate for the de*  gree of doctor of philosophy. This  student had adopted spelling reform  as his particular line of work, and as  commencement day drew near he went  to President Eliot with a request.

T- U. an interesting  and enjoyable social was held on the  evening of tbe 13th Inst. In the Sunday   School   room   of   tlie   Mount  Pleasant Presbyterian church in honor  of the honorary members.   A   good  audience greeted, the White Rlbboners  and gave good atentlon too, notwithstanding 'the fact that a tiny mouse  ran across the room.   Still, too much  praise must not be given to those of  us who did not observe that nimble  visitor.    The programme   committee  had   arranged   an   Interesting   programme, which aroused thought   as  well as entertained.     The   earnest,  thoughtful address of Mr. Collier, of  the Juvenile Detention-Home, with ita  revelation of painful facts   and   pathetic experiences of the moral   delinquencies,   touched   every parent's  heart and stirred Christian workers to  greater determination to aid in this  all-important movement to save the  boys and girls, thus preventing as far  as possible the criminal product This  speaker-was followed by Mrs. 8mith,  former president of the Union; who, tn  her unique and motherly manner, referred to the moral phase of the work,  urging the great necessity of parental  oversight,   and   tha   Importance   of  "character" to young girls, because of  the seductive, subtle forms of temptation to which they, are subject���������a very  timely warning, because of the moral  lepers In human'society,'discovered  even in this fair cityof Vancouver.

During  the evening several sweet soloswere  rendered, much regret being felt that  Mrs. McDuffy was imable to eing owing to a cold.
