 M&mw.  -/~.  ion  //  B SUBSCRIPTION SI A YEAR  ���������-" IN ADVANCE .'-������������������  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME III  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia,   JULY 7,   1911.  No. 9  aMcouver  )n the whole, the present'strike, of theTniild-.  trades has been conducted on clean lines,  pre has been, however, a few rcgretable inci-  its, and for which it is difficult to attach the  [ime to the guilty parties.  Several buildings were damaged and some of  men roughly handled.   It is not kuown.in.all  cases just who Avas to blame, but it is gently understood that the perpetrators were acton their own initiative and have not the sym-  fchy or approval of the uiiion leaders,   ln faet  S) labor leaders have repeatedly iurged. the men  , observe the law.   His worship the Mayor, in  of his addresses to the men, admonished-them  to use violence, but to peaceably picket'the  fious jobs  in  progress and  only to use  per-  ifsion with the men at work or while they were  ng to and from the work, but in: all cases to  in from violating the laws.  JVom this we are safe in saying that the strike  lers and union men generally are anxious to  5d any unpleasant disturbances, arid ithat any  iches of the law which may have occurred,  ijfe only the acts of irresponsible individuals,  many people are only too anxious to.lay all  urbanees at the dbbr of the unions.   This is  ,>fair. and in absence of positive proof it should  ,be done.   We cannot, however, too strongly  lemn those responsible for these acts of vio-  Be.    They injure the cause they claim to be  {rested in, and violate all sense of' fair-play,  -must ultimately bring discredit on anything  which they are identified.  rOKLD'S PRODUCTION LAST YEAR.  lat Canada will some day become '.'the gran-  Stof the Empire" is a possibility, but that day  >ars remote, in the light of the world produc-  tbf wheat in 1910, when the total was 3.574,-  bushels. to which Canada contributed a  lg 149,990.000 bushels. Seven countries ex-  fed the wheat output of Canada last year,  le an eighth���������Germany���������almost equalled it.  lice alone produced more than 100,000,000  lels in excess of Canada's yield. The Russian  lire leads the wTorld, with a yield greater than  i-fqurths of a billion bushels, and the United  fs is a comparatively close second. TBritish  comes next with about one-half that of the  fed States. Argentina, Chili, Australia and  [Zeajand are a most important factor.  ie following figures are reported by the Inter-  ]|nal Agricultural Institute:  1909.  fun try: Bushels.  buy  138.000.000  ria v.-     58.468.000  aria     32.072.000  :iarlv^.^.=....,.,...-.,.   .^_3.77l.(MX)^  i  144.105,000  urn     14.603.000  ee   .-..  359.178,000  Britain and Ireland 63.197,000  tarv.  125.907,000     189.961.000  nburg  ...........        617,000  i&v         312.000  brlands 4.112.000  jania   . ...     58.873,000  an Empire ... 790.245.000  en       6,910.000  erlaud ...........      3.568.000  la  166,744.000  d States ..'..-'.., .. 737.189.000  Hi India 283.495.000       22.296,000  lia     34.769.000         6,430.000  litina.

May number of the Canadian Bulletin re-  fig   the   publications   of   the   International  lultural Institute, contains the latest-statistics  pning the world's cereal crop's, and several  sting articles on Agricultural Co-operation:  Jes are given showing the condition of win-  real crops on April 1st, 1911,  comparison  I .made when possible with the conditions on'  1st, 1910.   Generally the percentage of con-  is slightly higher than last year.   The tables  production of wheat in the different conn-  |or 1910 have been revised to date, showing  pld-'s total for 1910 of 3,574,573,000 bushels  ^red with 3,581,007,000 bushels in 1909.���������  fttary Times."  Evidence AU In���������Civic Autos on Joy Ride���������Sea graves' Agent Gives Evidence.  The investigation into the affairs came to a close  on Tuesday last with the testimony of several witnesses re misuse of chief's car.  Archie Hughes, an ex-fireman, stated that he,  Avith the deputy chief and Sam Goth ard, had taken  the civic auto on a joy ride on one occasion last  fall. They left Vancouver late at night and proceeded to New Westminster, where they spent  several hours, returning home early in the morning sometime before 6. He admitted having had  "a couple of drinks," but could not say if they  were intoxicated or not. They called at the police station at New Westminster. Hughes claimed  he went in to get warmed, did not know why the  others went there. Mr. Armour asked him "if  they went there to get information as to where  to get liquor after hours?" Hughes answered that  he. had not, but could not say why the others7'  ���������'werit.'\..   .. 77.. '������������������:���������-  Mr. Craig sought to show that the ear used was  an old one, and asked- leading questions to that ���������  effect, but witness did not knowr.  Allen Brown, e x-driver of the chief's car, testified that last year through the camping season he  had frequently taken parties to Boundary Bay,  where Chief Carlisle was camping. He usually  went there on Friday evenings^ leaving the parties  and returned a gain Monday mornings for them,  thus making two trips each week.  He had also driven Sam Gothard and Chief  Carlisle to the hanging of a Jap at New Westminster last August.  T. J. Whitesides, ex-alderman and chairman of  the fire and police committee for last year, gave  evidence to the effeet that on no occasion had the  chief or anyone else asked or received permission  to use the civic autos. He, also, testified that complaints had been made to him re young girls frequenting one of the east end halls and that he had  reported it to the chief, requesting him to immediately put a stop to it.  Mr. Craig, counsel for the department, called  Mr. Phillips, of Seattle, an agent for the Seagraves  Company, and sought to show that the city had  not paid too much for the aerial truck.  Mr. Phillips said that he had recently sold a  truck to a city in California for $13,500. He further stated that Seagraves Columbus refused to  allow him to bid in this territory, as it was covered by W.E. Seagraves' Canadian patents.  Questioned by Mr. Armour as to his explanation of the invoiced cost of the Vancouver truck  at $8,000, he said that this was the factory price  and the difference between that and; $17,500 was  in profit, freight and duty. He did not t hink  the profit, high. Mr. Armour pointed out that the  sworn statement of Seagraves to the customs department was that the selling price on the open  market in the United States was $8,000, and that  meant to anyone. Mr. Phillips admitted he could  not explain it.  YMr. Armour Sums Up.  In summing lip the evidence Mr. Armour said  he would be very brief.  ^^JPheYfast,^  for 'other than civic purposes, had been amply  proven and it was an exceedingly bad precedent  and an expensive one to allow officials to use civic  autos for'private pleasure.  Charges 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7 all referred to the Sea-  grsives Compauy and' favoritism. Iu his opinion  the explanations were flimsy, to say the least, and  the correspondence between the chief and the  company showed such an intimacy between them  as to prove beyond doubt that they (the Seagraves  Company), had been favored, and also admitted  of a construction to reflect on the action of the  department. This was demonstrated when W. E.  Seagraves, of Walkerville, Ont.. got the contract,  the chief insisted on the machine being built in  Columbus. Ohio. "Then the exhorbitant price paid  and the great difference between $8,000, the sell- ,  ing price, and $17,500, the price paid, was sufficient to ;show that the city got the worst of the  deal.      ,  While he did not wish to reflect on the chief,  he thought it a mistake to refer all purchases to  the chief and King, the expert, as the chief had  admitted on the stand that he knew little about  machinery and King was prejudiced.  It was also shown by the evidence that the Seagraves were experimenting, as the Vancouver  truck was the first they had constructed.  Re promotions. The evidence showed that length  of service was never taken into consideration, but  only the whim of the chief. There was no system and all things being equal, length-of service  should decide the advancement of the men.  Regarding the actions of No. 5 Hall he-would  say but little, as the evidence was before them.  It, was a disgraceful state of affairs. He did not  blame the men so much as those in charge. It  was demonstrated that Stephens, the lieutenant,  was the instigator, and that Captain Jordan was  aware of what was going on and they should be  held responsible. ,;; As far as Captain Jordan's  evidence was concerned it was not worthy of consideration. Any man. of his experience who would  say that he thought empty liquor bottles lying  around were simply empty horse medicine bottles'  was childish and he must have known what they  were for.        n ..-  The fire engines had never been tested at all  that was clear and this was a matter which should  receive the attention of the council.  Re the ehief taking property belonging to the  city to his own house he claimed to allow this to  pass would'be'tantamount to giving any. official-;,-  the same privilege, which would be exceedingly  dangerous. The practice was reprehensible iii the  extreme. The city should, through its Storekeeper,  sell all machinery or such property not iu use,  and realize all possible on it, and credit the department with the amount.  In concluding Mr. Armour thanked the committee for their courtesy;  Mr. Craig.  The counsel for the defense, Mr. Craig, said  that there had originally been filed ten charges,  but that subsequently when it was evident that  the' inquiry was a fiasco other1 charges were filed  after a search had been made to scrape up everything possible against the department.  He claimed that there had been no evidence  submitted,"not one word." The correspondence,  of 'which so much was made, only went to show;  that the chief, after twenty-five years' service,  had formed an opinion arid made a few frierids  ofj those with whom the eity had dealings. We  should be proud of the chief for forming these  /friendships. . . 7'.'  7 "I am hot concerned," said Mr. Craig, "whether  or no the Seagraves passed their apparatus  through the customs officials under a false valuation. If the Seagraves were wrong it is of no interest to me." He proceeded to show that as the  apparatus was under Canadian patents it would  necessarily cost more.  The (machine cost $8,000, $2,800 cduty, $500  freight and the balance of the $17,500 was accounted for in profits to the Canadian agent.  This, in his view, was a good bargain for the city. -  Re the chief's auto it was a most trumpery  charge. The ehief was paid a salary and given an  auto for himself as a gift or a perquisite of'Office.  It was not to run to fires with, but to use as he  thought fit and part of his pay. (That is a new-  view. Salary, $4,200; auto, June. 1910, $2,700;  auto, April, 1911, $4,300. That is going some.)  --'Mr. jf'fa.ig^said he, was not.concerned as to.,  whether the promotion system was good or bad.  He claimed the chief had kept to the rules, if  there were-any. if it was bad or rules not efficient,  then it was up to the council.  Re the boiler the chief took to his own house,  it was no good and he admitted the chief made  a mistake in not asking for it, but would anyone  say the chief intended to be dishonest ?' Was this'  little thing to be considered, in the face of the  chief's twenty-five years' service? We cannot  deny the mistake, but it would be disastrous to  condemn the chief for it.'  Regarding the practice of allowing women to  frequent the halls, this was a.matter which, should  not have been brought out at the investigation  at all. The chief had no knowledge ofit, and  there was an excuse for the chief not taking any  action.  The result of the investigation was, in his opinion, a high tribute to the department as a whole,  and to the chief in particular.  : _^7  ._ :.  This closed the investigation and it is now up  to the committee to bring in a report which"-will  be done in the course of a Week.  The "Call" claims that every charge made has  been amply demonstrated in the face of bitter  opposition. The public should keep this fact in  mind, that every scrap of evidence had to be  gathered from within the department, which made  it doubly difficult. Some of the witnesses deliberately lied while"'under oath. This made it a  most difficult task for the prosecution, as its own  witnesses would thus testify falsely.  We leave the matter now with the committee,  and trust that even what evidence has been adduced will be taken into consideration, and if this  is done impartially we shall have no complaint.  SECOND NARROWS BRIDGE.  Last January the citizens voted $200,000 for  slock in a "publicly owned bridge" across the  Second Narrows.  Since that time a tentative arrangement has  been made with the V.. V. & E. Railway to amal-  gamate with them and allow the railway.'company to become a part owner of the bridge to  the extent of the cost of tlie approaches,, which'  they agree to construct. ���������-,..-  In absence of the full agreement, we are unable  to comment upon it to any great extent, but it  would be-well for the public to follow closely the  proceedings.  One thing is certain, and that is it'would.-'be.  unwise for the city to sink .+200.000 in a concern  iu which any one railway company had an advantage  over other  roads,  which would  be   the  case in the proposed scheme.  It was intended that this bridge should be open  to all railways upon equal footing. How can  this be done if one road 'owns a large share of the  stock, with one or more representatives on the  board of directors'? ���������  As far as we can see, the only thing accomplished by this agreement is to relieve the V.. V.  & E. of about two-thirds of the cost of the bridge  and at the same time giving them, to a large extent, control of the situation, or in any case a  decided preference.  We want that bridge, but only as a PUBLIC  CONCERN, without any strings.  DR. W. J. DAWSON the central attraction.  Ocean Park Summer School  One of the surest signs of the growing import-^  anee of Western British Columbia is the rapidly  multiplying advantages. A summer school; with  one of the world's great men as a central attraction-would have been a dream of eastern days,  and that not very long ago. Today this is an ac-'  complished fact.  Ocean Park, where the summer school, or Pacific Chautauqua, will be held, is au ideal summer  resort, and a beauty spot indeed.  There is a beautiful beach for boating and bathing, and a vie^ of mountain; sea and island that  equals the besf points of ,th������ world-famed Mediterranean. Yet this*lies at our very door, thirty  miles from Vancouver. You can hire a tent, buy  your meals and have the-very best company you  can think of.  In addition to all this, a large auditorium will  provide a meeting place, where a series of moat  invitiug meetings will be held.--  - -- .  Dr Dawson will lecture each day from 11 to 12,  and from 7:30 to 8:30. If you have not heard  Dr. Dawson, you have heard OF him. and read  about him. He is one of the really BIG MEN of  the Christian world of our day. lie has a special  message on Social Subjects, and on Modern Evangelism. Dr. Dawson has aroused the thinking  world on present-day problems, and lie will arouse  you if you will come into touch with him. There  will be other meetings for devotion and, the discussion of many phases of Christian work. These  conferences will be conducted by well known  leaders, and will be helpful and inspiring.  You are looking for a holiday for a few weeks,  or a few days. Dr. Dawson will be at Ocean  Park from Sunday coming, July 9th. to July 16th.  A single ticket admitting to the whole course of  twelve lectures by Dr. Dawson costs $3.00. A  family tieket-for'the'whole course is $5. For individual lectured the fee is fifty cents.  For those who cannot be in residence for the  ^whole-time-a special-train-has^bee!uarranged7for,._  and a special fare. The fare during the six days  of Dr. Dawson's visit will be $.1, return, and the  special train will leave the Great Northern depot  at 8:30 in the morning,leaving Ocean Park in  the evening at 9 o'clock.  You want, to escape from the strain of city,  social and business life and to have dear old  Mother Nature whisper to you her message of  quiet and rest while you look into her face as  she Avears one of her most charming expressionsl  Then go to'Ocean Park.  You want all this and inspiration for the coming fall and winter, when again you must face  the pressing problems of Church.7 .Home and  Society. Then take the chance to touch and  hear-a man who has faced these very problem's/���������  and who speaks with a master's experience.  ll. N   P.  SMOKING HABIT.  "We arc informed that seventy-five per cent, of the  applicants  for  positions  in   the   Canadian   navy  were  refused because of "moving picture eye and cigarette.';  heart."  This is appalling and should make us consider  if we are wise in allowing a habit to secure such  control of our youth. The tobacco habit is comparatively modern, dating from about the 16th century.  It is. we believe, growing more and more common.  It is essentially an acquired habit. Medical experts  tell us it is dangerous to health. It is selfish, being  offensive to the non-user of tobacco. Then, we might  justly ask. "Js it worth ivhih'.-"  We have no desire to be prudish, but when one  coolly considers  tbe  cost,  in  money  and  health,  and  balances this with the pleasure, there appears to be a���������  sad discrepancy.  Wc  venture  the  opinion  that  over  half of  the  smokers are so in self-defense, that is. men find themselves in tbe companv of other men vvho arc largely  smokers:  the  result  is  that   unless  they  acquire  the  habit they invariably suffer severe headaches or similar ^  complaints, and consequently large numbers "get the  habit."    Gentlemen arc usually careful not. to offend -  a non-smoking neighbor, but unfortunately some are  not so considerate and frequently We see some thoughtless boor puffing smoke  into the face of a lady or v  others in the vicinity.   This, we do not hesitate to con- 7  demn as unmannerly and unutterably selfish.  f-  ���������x- THE WESTERN CALL  City Fire Alarms  3���������Granville and Beach. .  4���������C. P. R.

ENGLISH  NONCONFORMITY  PREPARED TO 8ING ITS  NUNC   DIMITTIS  With reference to the statistical  tables, which appeared in the Westminster Gazette, showing the relatie  progress of the Church and the Dissenting communities. Dr. THorton, one  of the Pillars of English Noncomform-  ity, has made an interesting contribution. "Particularly do ��������� I .agree," he  writes, "with Principal Selbie in rejoicing with the Church of England in  the success which is attending her  work. The Free Churches only exist  to supplement her deficiencies. When  she is able to meet the wants of our  community, they can joyfully sing  their Nunc Dimittis. But her prosperity is our joy. We resire nothing  better than to see the Church of England proclaiming the -Gospel of our  Lord to this country in its fulness and  its freedom, and gathering in the people of this country to the fold' of  Christ. We are content to decrease,  if her increase means the glory of our  common Lord." The excellent temper  which marks Dr. Horton's utterance  is a-wide departure from that ni which  the society to which he belongs severed itself from the Church, and appears  to us at least so inconsistent with the  principles of independency as to make  us' wonder wny and how Dr. Horton remains where his is. If there are deficiencies in the Church, they could  better be supplied by association with  It than by adhering to an organization  4 Call���������Terminal City Press A. J.  which, as facts seem to prove, is los:.  ing its power of doing the supplementary work.  Dhen we see in Canadian papers  columns of news with great staring  headlines of how the churches (the  title usurped by NonconformityW are  glorifying themselves, and contrast all  this with the quiet, steady, unobtrusive  work of the Church of England in  Canada, we are not surprised that  even here Nonconformity is beginning  to feel uneasy, not having yet learned  the truth of Isaiah's ernest exhortation, "In quietness and in confidence  shall be thy strength."  .   .

So was I.  So you strolled along the terrace,  Saw the summer moonlight pour  All its radiance on the waters  As they rippled on the shore;  Till at length you gathered courage,  When you saw that none were nigh.  Did you draw her close and tell her  That you loved her?   So did I.  Well, I needn't ask you further,  And I'm sure I wish you joy;  Tlunk I'll wander down and see you  When you're married���������eh, my boy?

(Northwestern Christian Advocate;)  Prince Max of Saxony, a younger  brother of the king of that land, has  been a Jesuit priest since 1896,: and  for five years has held the important  office of professor of canon law and  liturgy at the Swiss University of  Freiburg. Extremely gentle and affable in his manners, he has ever  enjoyed popularity, especially 7among  the poor, to whom much of his time  was devoted. He began his ecclesiastical career as a parish priest, and  worked for some months among the  poor of the East End of London.   He|after years of Patient stn^-   He had  demns. It characterizes' his article  as inconsiderate, but written in good  faith. Twelve hours after the prince  was kneeling befoi;ej:'the Pope asking  forgiveness and retracting all he had  said, the Pope?s letter to his bishops,  condemning the prince had been issued and was on the way to all four  quarters of the world. Never has  there been such haste at the Vatican.  Foundations Are Sapped.  Although the Vatican has dealt successfully with far stronger natures  than that of the prince, and we greatly regret the course of the prince, yet  no "one believes in Prince Max's recantation. He is a man of science  and his  conclusions were arrived at  is now a Tertiary of the great Dominican Order, and has always been  known as a strong rock of orthodoxy.  A Prince on His Travels.  This royal priest for some years has  been deeply interested in the union  of the Eastern and Western branches  of the Catholic Church, and recently  made a journey to Athens, Constantinople, and the great monastic establishment of Mount Athos, with the  object of studying the situation, and  of getting in contact with the leaders  of the Eastern Church, or as the  Catholic News (January 14, 1911) says,  to study "the delicate question of the  return of the Greek Church to the  true fold." On his way home he lectured on his experiences; the prince  rather made fun of those Greek and  Russian monks hiding there among  the rocks of Athos. TheBe lectures,  however, did not seem to have brought  him reproof or correction, probably  because they were confined to the  monks of the Greek Church.     .  Soon after he contributed an article  to a Catholic periodical entitled Rome  and the Orient, edited by a monk; of  St. Basil, the abbot of Pellegrini; this  article is mainly occupied in removing  the hindrances to the union of the  Oriental and Occidental Churches. It  haB caused a storm of indignation in  Roman circles, and has caused the  Vatican to summon the illustrious  priest to Rome, there to giv$ in explanation of his conduct and to ie-  cant his views.

Popes like Innocent III.,  ������ ;Nicholas I., and Leo IX. have insisted  on this view. It is a view, says  irince Iviax, which must be given iip  if union is to be established. A  primacy at Rome cannot be maintained. Equally clear is Prince Max's remark about the temporal power. The  temporal power is of modern invention, unknown to the early . Church,  and only maintained on the questionable authority of false credentials.  This isa view^which^only^a.few,years,  ago was described as accursed by  Pope Leo XIII.  Primacy of Rome Denied.  Prince Max is equally explicit concerning his views ou the dogma. If  Rome desires union with the Eastern  patriarchs there must be no insistence oh those peculiar dogmas and  rites "fabricated" by the Roman  Church alone, and introduced'after the  disruption. Not only must the primacy'of'Rome be abandoned, bat tlie  peculiar Roman coloring given to the  doctrine oi' the purgatory, to trans-  substantiation, ami to confirmation  must not be insisted on. Ou these  dogmas the Oriental 'Church, has its  own views; and liberty must be given'  to it to retain those views. Tho belief ������������������ in the "Immaculate Conception of  .Mary was not held or recognized by  the saints of the earliest times. The  Apostle Paul must be given a place  of authority, equal to that held by St.  Peter. On "the general question of unon,  says   the   prince,   there   must   be   no  forcing of the Eastern Churches to  accept; the Roman standards either in  polity or'dogma,-there must be no insisting on contributions of money from  the East to the West for the support  of peculiarly Western institutions.  The Vatican Takes Action.  Briefly this is the substance of the  famous article written by this boia  Saxon prince. As soon as it was published, every effort was made by the  Vatican authorities to suppress the  magazine in which it appeared.  Hastily Prince Max was sent for.  Soon it was made luiown by the Vatican authorities "that he is ready to  retract all errors pointed out to him  by the Holy See" (Catholic News, New  York, January'14, 1911). The papal  epistle to the Eastern Churches states  that  Prince  Maximilian   in  the  pres-  not really yielded up his belief. All  he has done is to give his master, the  Pope, a salve to apply to anxious  spirits throughout the Church. It is  the opinion of the Catholic and Protestant Church in Europe that the  foundations of the Church of Rome  are being surely sapped, and cracks  are beginning to appear in the clay  feet of the colossus. Of course, It is  now impossible to obtain a copy of the  periodical in which the prince's article appeared, and judging by the  fresh light thrown on the article by  the European press the prince is a  modernist of the blackest type.  The Vatican in Germany.  - In the Saxon home of the prince the  incident has created most profund  excitement. The Catholic house of  Wettin, which rules in the Protestant  land of Saxony, has no sympathies to  spare for the Vatican or the ways of  the Vatican. This was shown pretty  effectively recentlp when the king of  Saxony sent his famous protest to  Rome against the language of the late  Borromeo, encyclical. The kiug himself is said to be in no way attached  to Rome or to the Roman confession,  and in his capital of Dresden rumor is  persistent that the drastic treatment  which- Prince Max suffered will move  the king one step further in the direction of secession, to follow the example of his Protestant forbears of  the glorious Reformation. The Vatican Burelp should know, if past experiences are not utterlp forgotten,  tbat among the proud, straightforward,  unbending Teutons the spirit of Martin Luther still lives and moves,  vdneat taoi taoin taoni aoin taoni aoin  BISHOPS EXCOMMUNICATED  With the exception of the case 01  'Father Tyrrell, it is. many years since  the Pope haB excommunicated any one  in England. A bull, however, has  just been received from the Vatican  containing sentence of "major excommunication" against Bishop Mathew,  of the Old Catholic Church, and  Fathers F." Ignatius Beale and A. W.  Howarth. of the Roman Catholic diocese of Nottingham, who some months  ago were consecrated as bishops ot  the Old Catholic Chcrch by Bishop  Mathew. The bishop, who is the leading spirit of the Old Catholics in England, states that he has not been a  subject of the Pope for twenty years.  He is a lineal descendant of Sir  David Mathew, of Landaff, who was  a standard-bearer to Edward IV. One  of his . forebears was created Earl of  .andaff in the Irish Peerage in 1793,  and Bishop ^athe^^aiined'tKe^itie1  in 1894, bet has never submitted his  claim to the Committee of Privileges.  Shopping Sickness.  I am afflicted with "shopping sickness" and I have sometimes idly wondered, as I watched the throngs of  women who seemingly enjoy.- what to  me is utter discomfort, whether they  ever get dizzy and faint and utterly  worn out by an hour's globe trotting:.  There is my elderly aunt, for instance,  -he loves what she calls "seeing the  world ando getting ideas." She never  '.lesiiates to'ack what every novelty is  Intended to represent and quaint and  curious bits of knowledge she picks up  every day in lier saunterin'S'S. She  feas'is her eyes on lovely color effects  in silken weaves'or hanging deaneries  ".nd turns from the crude'"and ugly  where it'exists, ay though it had not  been. She knows the salespeople and  has a smile, and nod for those . who  have won her god graces. With me  it is the people in the stores among  whom I seem to fairly dro'wnded; the  coming and going, passing and repassing, make the waters go over my head,  and I come up gasping. The segments  of life seen in the elevator, hold me  fascinated, the various floors, being  each like dolls' houses, and the stiff  little people make me think of the up-  and-down women in the Noah's Ark of  childhood, who anticipated somewhat  the fashions of 1911Y  One man was killed and seven injured in the automobile races at Indianapolis, Ind:, May 30th.

LEPROSY CASE IN LONDON  Some time ago a lady living in North  London who was young and extremely pretty, went to a fancy dress nan.  The costume���������that of a Chinese lady-  was pronounced perfect in every detail. Unfortunately the wig she wore  was only too real. It came from the  East. About a week ago a strange  mark appeared on the girl's forehead.  She consulted her doctor, who first  treated her for eczema. The mark,  however, showed no signs bf improvement, and the doctor called in a specialist, who diagnosed the case as being one of leprosy. Arrangements  were immediately made for the removal of the girl to a leper colony.  Diligent inquiries have been made by  the health authorities to discover the  antecedents of the wig, as it is belieed  that it must have been worn at one  time by a leper.

League proposes to deal chiefly witn  the country districts, but will also  send girls to posts in towns whenever  the conditions are suitable. And in  thus finding work for the League's  applicants the representative is  pledged also to send them only to  posts which she has investigated and  can guarantee wholly^ reliable and offering adequate remuneration.  The C. I. L. therefor invites applications for women workers of all sorts,  confident that its guarantee as to their  ability and general character will  prove justified,  follows:  (A) A registration fee of 50 cents  and a further fee of 50 cents on engagement; or  (B) Enrollment in the League at  an annual subscription of (minimum)  $1.00, which entitles to the engagement  of two girls in the year without fee,  the usual terms (see A) being charged  for an engagement beyond that number, unless the  subscription is $5.00,  The terms for Employers are as  when no further fee is charged.  The terms for applicants are exactly the same���������the fee, however, being  not necessarily payable in advance.  Associates are enrolled on payment  of any sum (minimum $1.00), as either  subscribers or donors.  A copy of the first annual report  (headquarters) may be had for 5  cents on application to Miss Dorothy  Davis.
