Perhaps he is under the impression the people  gave him a mandate for his "tinpot" navy in  1910, consisting of the RainboWand the Niobe.  The latter vessel has spent most of her time in  dry-dock, recuperating from the effects of attending political picnics in Yarmouth County, while  the poor old Rainbow cannot put out to sea for  fear of going to the bottom should a gale blow up.  With Mr. Emmerson reading the Declaration of  independence, Dr.. Neely of Humbolt discussing  Revolution and the Boston Tea Party, and Mr.  White of Victoria, Alberta, declaring on the floor  Of parliament that the tJnited Empire Loyalists  came to Canada because they were, afraid to fight,  ;the Iiiberalsare making excellent campaign material for the Conserv^ives these days. ��������� A hearty  ..Vote of thanks should be tendered these gentlemen by every Conservative Association executive  throughout the Dominion. The issue is a clean-  cut one.

The Opposition has'been for months accusing  the Government of altering the grades of the  Transcontinental Railway and of making other  alterations in the standard of construction, to the  detriment of the road.  These charges were made on the basis of  rumors. Those who made the charges were not  content to wait for information as to the actual  facts. That did not suit their case which depended upon the lack of accurate information.  At a somewhat late hour the facts have been  aaked for, and the information elicited explains  the readiness of Liberal members to get the  charges out ahead of the facts. It had already  been stated officially that such grade changes as  bad-been decided upon would in, no way lessen'  the hauling capacity of the road, while they  would contribute toward more economical construction. The information lately asked for by  the Opposition and furnished by the Government  shows that the changes made in regard to grades,  bridges and trestles were recommended by the  Chief Engineer of the Transcontinental Railway  Commission, and tbat on the estimate of District  Engineer H. M. Balkan), the saving in cost so  far has amounted to $27,797. '  NOTHING TO IT.  Hon. George P. Graham, former Minister of  Railways, asked these further questions:  "How many temporary trestles on the eastern  division of the National Transcontinental Railway, originally intended to have been permanently filled, have been substituted for permanent  structures, and where are they locatedt  "How many temporary or wood bridges have  been substituted where concrete and steel or per-  mm made  BACHELOR  Ask the man who smokes thtm.  By Our Special Correapoo^ilat, Arthur R. Ford  /  Ottawa.���������Every session of the House of Commons serves to bring to the front men who by  attention to Parliamentary duties joined to natural ability are soon marked as coming leaders'  in their party. This session of the Commons has,  it is true, been unusual in the fact that thus far  its energies have been so concentrated on one  great issue that men whose abilities are marked  in other lines have suffered under a disability.  Tet out of that outstanding question of the navy  there has come demand for men able to handle  what might be termed side-issues and to back up  the heavy artillery with the, machine guns of  clear cut constitutional argument and effective  reply to specious arguments. ���������;'-"'������������������''..  The Conservative party in the House of Commons today is fortunate in the band of young  men wbicb it possesses who are energetic, resourceful, hard-working students and public spirited. More than that,/they ajfc men of ideals and  ambitions, men who if they continue in public  life will fully maintain the traditions of the Conservative party.  There is probably no man in the House who  has come to the front more ;rapidly this session  than Arthur Meighen, member for Portage-la-  Prairie. He has been prominent in every important debate, and the, confidence which the  premier and the Government repose in him is  shown by the fact that on a number of occasions  he has handled the brief fcgr the Conservative ���������  party, and handled it on every occasion with con-  snmate ability. One of tiie:j.otabie speeches ot  the session waa bis presentation of the case for  a system of rural credits through co-operative  banks. The subject would batdly be described aa  one of entrancing interest t$ ^  but Mr. Meighen preeented ni������ case in snob a  brilliant manner, and ;brougtgjs: such strong evi-  dence to back up all bis opinions, that he was  followed with keenest interest by a full house,  and' at the close there eai^ ra^ the finance  minister, Hon. W* T* lfaite,ithe complimentary  reference that Mr. Meighen had presented his subject In "an absolutely fascinating manner."  Mr. Meighen haJTone of the keenest legal minds  in tbo Hoiwe today, bis power of analysis being  acknowledged generally to he second only to that  of Hon. George E. Foster, whom in many ways  be resembles. In addition he is a deep student  and is one of the best posted men in the House  on Parliamentary procedure and constitutional  issues. During this session he has had a particular opportunity to exercise his ability along these  lines. An unusual number of knotty constitutional  and Parliamentary problems have come before the  House this session. There was the famous Miller  case���������-a. case without precedent in the history of  the Canadian Parliament. Mr. Meighen handled,  this difficult situation, so important to the work  of Parliamentary committees, with notable skill,  and was generally congratulated on bis brilliant  speech on the subject. Not less notable was his  work in connection with the charges made against  Hon. Louis Coderre, secretary of state, while in  the matter of the constantly arising questions of  rules of tbo House,* so much to the front this  session, bit services to the Government have been  invaluable.  So brilliant is Mr. Meighen a work this session  and so very evidently is he in the close confidence  of tbe premier and the cabinet ministers that his  name is being freely mentioned as the next to  succeed to a portfolio when a vacancy from the  west occurs.   That he would add strength to the  manent bridges were to bave been constructed,  and where is each located t  "Are any of the momentum, grades, or apportion of them, on trestles? Ifj so, in wbat district and at what milet /  "Have any yards or divisional points on the  line of the* eastern division of the National Trans-  contmenftal Railway been reduced from the original plan in area, trackage, buildings or efficiency 1"  The answer to each of these questions was,  "None."  ���������iv  VALUE FOR THE MONEY.  The work of completion of the Transcontinental  Railway since the overthrow of the Laurier Government has been carried on by business men  on a business basis. The work has been expedited. There has been none of the wastefulness  characteristic of the old methods. The people  are getting value for their money.  Government birth "rathe House and outside of it  an the Prairie Provinces is undoubted.   -  .Another young man who though with less  Parliamentary experience ia looked upon as one  of the coming men of the House is William F.  Nickle, member for Kingston. Mr. Nickle' vgas  in the Ontario Legislature, where he made a name  for himself, and he was one of the Conservatives  to resign when; the reciprocity campaign came  along in 1911. He and his Conservative colleagues  who left the Legislature to try for the House  of Commons under the leadership of Robert Laird  Boi-den were every oneof them successful and a  notable accession they were to t the Conservative  party at Ottawa. Mr. Nickle ia in many respects  very much like Mr. Meighen in appearance and  habits. He is equally as studious, and also revels  in fine constitutional arguments. He has made a  number of very able speeches on the questions  that have arisen on the rul������s pl^b)e House, which  have had siich bearing u!pdh tbe pi-ogress of  pnblic business this session. M^. Nickle in his  first session made what waY conceded to be the  ablest "maiden speech" in the House. It was  upon the question of old age pensions, not a  particularly exciting topic. The debate had been  dragging wearily, the few members in the House  reading papers or writing letters. Mr. Nickle  afose and at once caught the attention of ihe  drowsy House He spoke but fifteen minutes, but  in that fifteen minutes lie put forward as much  aycurate information and soUd argAiu&nt aa many  an able speaker would with diutclilty Mye covered  in two hours. The speech in its'wwwns a master-  pjeee, and brought commendation from both  "Pfremier^ord������& and Sir Wilfrid Laurie^  'From theJr^rthe^ West came in 1911 a new  niember, H.H^ Stevens, representing the city of  Vancouver* wlio has alao rapidly come tp the  % front. Mr. Stevens is one of the most conscientious  : and tnoBt diligent members of Parliament.  He is  1 f������}thful in Jiis attendance in the House, follows  the progress of legislation closely, and has. shown  himself a most useful member of committees. Mr.  ll|!?������������^^bo iri Bti^^  quite aHmfintife career.   He saw active opel%-  tions in the Philippines ahd later went through  the Boxer Rebellion in China.   He has roughed  it in every form and shape in British Columbia,  and has arisen from a fireman land stage driver  to be member of parliament for the most important city of British Columbia.   And at that  he is still in his thirties.   His Oriental experience has giveo him splendid opportunity of observing ���������'������������������ithe. Asiatic problems that  occasionally  come to the front in Canada, and he bad decided  views on the question of -Japanese, Chinese and  Hindu immigration into Canada.  Recognition of the ability of. a well known  Western Ontario member came at the beginning  of this sessioq when Mr. W. S. Middlebro, member  for North Grey,Vwas appointed one of assistant.  Government; nyhips in succession to Mr. A. S.  Goodeye, who was appointed to the Railway Commission. Anything that has to do witb the whip's  department is no sinecure, for it is the duty of  Chief Whip John Stahfield a.nd his assistants tQ  have the Government forces in order for any and  every contingency. But at the same time, despite  the heavy dut'e8 laid upon them, the positions are  regarded as those of honor. Mr. Middlebfo has  taken to the duties of the position with marked  ability, and the choi<fe made of him has been well  justified. But an even more signal recognition  came in the appointment o������ the North Grey to  the position of chairman of the Public Accounts  Committee, one of the stormy committees, of the  House. It does not often fall to the lot of tbe  chairman of his committee to deal with as troublesome a situation as arose over the famous Miller  episode where a witness refused to give information. To allow such conduct to pass would have  been to make a farce of the committee and Chairman Middlebro took prompt action by reporting  the matter to the House, and by recommending  that the recalcitrant witness should be called to  the bar of the House. That this was done and  the circumstances surrounding the occasion will  be well, remembered as one of the sensational  events of this session. The man Miller was sent  to jail and he is still there. The rights of the  Public Accounts Committee, as well as of all  other committees, were clearly vindicated.  In the naval debate, too, Mr. Middlebro took a  prominent part, bis speech on the second reading  of the bill being -regarded as one of the best  efforts on the part of Government members.

But during the long painful servitude of the  dark ages the sons of Italy still remembered the  days when Italia ruled the world, and they could  see no good reason for remaining down under a  cloud and in mental and superstitious darkness.  Hence they longed for light, for mental freedom,  for spiritual manhood, for an uninvaded home, for  a fair educational and national chance to compete  among, and with men of all nations, as formerly  they successfully had done to the amazement of  the whole world.

Board of Works estimates . -which  will probably come up before the City  Council next Monday, contain, an item  of |3,000 for street name plates, with  which it is hoped to remedy many of  the corners of the city that are defective in this respect. Name plates of  the ordinary blue and white enamel  type are to be used for the present,  and the estimate of $3,000 will provide  for only a portion of the needs of the  city.  Ultimately Chief Engineer Fellowes  hopes to have an illuminated sign sys  tem to cover the city, but owing to  the condition of the city's funds this  year it will be impossible even to  start upon it. The system used in other  cities is to have lighted signs on the  street-lighting standards, with information as to the house numbers in the  blocks. The present method of nailing  a name plate on a building or stamping it on the concrete sidewalk is  useless at night.

On the 20th the coldest day  occurred since the contest started, the  thermometer registering 12 degrees of  frost. Heavy wind storms have been  sandwiched in between bright, sunshiny periods, and rain as well as  snow, the latter just a flurry, has contributed its quota to the . month's  weather make-up.  Some.good records have to be again  recorded to the past month. Pen 32,  with 164 eggs laid, have again distinguished themselves. This month they  have again beaten all records for  American contests. Their daily yield  for the 31 days just past is as follows:  6344536546656655666566  64 5 56666 6���������164.

Professor Villari In a work dedicated to the late Mr. Gladstone, has much  to say tn regard to the Borgias. Of  Lucretia's father the followins will  give one an idea aa to what one would  expect the daughters to be. This eminent Italian historian says: "The  name of the new Pope Alexander VI.,  has too evil a notoriety for it to be  necessary to speak of him at length.  Rorferigo Borgia was of Spanish birth,  and had Btudied law in. Italy. Owing  to his great facility of address, astonishing aptitude for business, particularly in the management of finance,  and above all, by the favor of his  uncle, Galixtus III., be had risen step  by step to the rank of cardinal and  Editor of The Western Call:  "Lucretia Borgia'* was the chief  drawing card in the moving picture  business last week. Most pictures of  the Italian kind are used for the glorification of the' church, but for this  time the Borgias and religion were  kept strictly separate. From the pictures of the notorious Lucretia one  would have never known that she was  the. Illegitimate daughter of his holiness Pope Alexander VI., of blessed  Memory, as papal biographers would  ���������ay. Let us not be too severe in passing Judgment on Lucretia and her  Holy Father, for in those days when  they were prominent figures in Italian  life, immorality as we of today would  look upon lt, was non-existant. At  all public and private functions at  Rome the pope's illegitimate children  usually occupied the place of honor.  "Burchard'a Diary" gives many instances which will prove the truthfulness of the assertion. We are indebted to the Bishop of Strasburg for  the following: "On Sunday, 16th  November, before luncheon, in the  Apostolic Palace at St. Peter's, in the  hall beyond the park, immediately  after the hall of the Pontiffs, a mar-j the possession of large revenues.

In this way he was enabled  oa, and depository of our Most Holy!to accumulate the immense fortune  Lord the Pope, and the Lord Alfonso'that served to raise him to the papacy  del Carretto, Marquis of Finale, and  the bridal ring was put on in the presence of our Most Holy Lord the Pope,  their Most Rev. Lordships the Cardinals of St Pietro in Vlncoll and St.  George, the Archbishops of Contanceo  and Benevento. the Bishops of Aleria,  Volterra, Tournal, Auray, Cortona,  Melfltano and others. After the ceremony our Most Holy Lord left the  , hall aforesaid and came to the ball of  the Pontiffs with all the persobages  aforesaid, where three table's were  prepared for luncheon, of which tbey  jaartook. At the first table aat our  Most Holy Lord, with the two sajd  cardinals;  at the second the clergy  . aforesaid and others, also the. Lord.  Mattia Clbo, the apostolic sub-deason,  the Lord Ilario Gentile, and certain  others; at the third table, either opposite or at right angles to this, sat,  the vices' of this time just as Cardinal  Gibbons is denouncing the matrfmoa-  ial vices of today.   Savonorola   was  strangled  and buime-1 for hia pains,  just as would have beea dona to our  modern Savonorola of Baltimore had  he lived iu the Eosplou* age ve allude to,"  Of the family quarrels in the  Vatican Professor Vtheri haa this to  say: "Juat at this time one ef those  atrocious tragedies occurred with  which the Borgia family were accustomed to stir the horrors of the world,  even in an age that was among the  most scandalous ever recorded lb history. The Duke of Gandia. the pope's  eldest Bon, was killed by a dagger-  thrust on the night of the 14th of  June and hi* corpse was thrown in  the Tiber. His brother. Cesare Borgia,  Cardinal of Valencia, was the murderer, having; been impelled, it waa  said, to the crime by unnatural Jealousy on his sister Lucretia's account,  and also by an unbounded ambition  that could tolerate no equals In power." It ls significant that at this time  when Lucretia.was at the aenith of  her inglorious career a chubby flaxen-  haired little'German boy was playing  around the streets of a town in Saxony  a boy whose name waa Martin Luther. When Martin threw off the yoke  of Rome, scenes such as are here  described -became lees frequent. This  is one reason why the papacy should  never speak - lightly of the Reformation.  CHURCHMAN.  The Red Coat is  Robert Jackson, Peruvian Representative Here, Died Under Peculiar  Circumstances.  Addicted to license and sensuality, he  was always the slave of some woman.  At the time of his election he was the  lover of the notorious Vannozza, by  whom he had several children. This  woman's, mother was said. to have  been his. former mistress, just as he  was afterwards accused ot a. shameful  connection with his own arid Vannoz-  *sa> daughter, Lucretia, known to all  the world ae the cause of the many  scandals, and sanguinary jealousies by  which the name of Borgia became a  disgrace to humanity." Such was the  character of Lucretia's father; such  was4he character of TPope Alexander  VI's daughter Lucretia. But the aged  pope had a large family; some historians say six sons and one daughter,  and others say seven sons and Lucretia; two of whom at least gained  great notoriety. Savonorola denounced  Robert Jackson, Peruvian consul  here, was asphyxiated on the 6th inst.  at the home of his friend, Mr. F. M.  Hack, who has apartments at 1748  Davie street. Mr. Hack had left Mr.  Jackson in his room late in the afternoon, and when he came back about 8  o'clock he found the room full of gas  and the lifeless body, of his friend lying on hia bed.  The windows had been closed and  the gas cock supplying the gas heater  had been left open and was still pouring gas into the room when Mr. Hack  arrived; ������������������.-  Mr. Jackson was probably, better informed on 8outh American politics  and history than any man in the city,  at he had spent many years in different South American republics, and In  more- thro one of them had ��������� received  honors .for services to, - the. state. It  is Baid tbat he was intending to leave  here on April 24 to take a high government position in Peru, the country  which be had represented here for  sjome time.  RESPLFNDANT UNIFORM TO GIV������  PLACE TO MORE SERVICEABLE KHAKI.  The red coat of .the British infantryman, which, for hundreds of years  has been one of tiie most striking features of the armies of the world, to to  disappear, and soon the world will  know no more "the thin red lines of  heroes." According to well authenticated reports of the plans of the  British war department, it is understood that the secretary of war will  disclose in his forthcoming army estimate as onevof the principal measures  of economy a proposal to abolish the  famous scarlet full-dress uniform ot all  the infantry lines, the royal marines  and the light infantry.  Khaki Preferred;  The khaki service'dress is to be the  uniform of the future. That prospect,  particularly for the recruiting sergeant and the nursemaid in the park,  la not at all pleasant, but as an economic departure the scheme has much  to recommend lt. If the proposal finally comes before Parliament it is sure  to meet with strenuous opposition  from those who regard the bright, attractive tunics as an important stimulus to recruiting, also from those who  merely consider the army as something more ornamental than necessary,������  and a wordy parliamentary war between sentimentality and utilitarian-  Ism is promised.  Like the Kilt*.  The sentimental feeling of the English people for the historic uniforms of  their soldiers, has been only .recently  displayed in tbe opposition against discarding the kilts of the Highland  troops. When this proposition was  put forward there was a general protest, not only from the whole country  and it has resulted, so far at any. rate,  in the kilt being retained, and it is  hardly possible that the red coat will  be discarded without a struggle.  '  Dashing Guardsmen.'  For the moment it is- not suggested  that. the .dashing guardsman ahall have  the beauty of their apparel Interferred  with.   Neither Ib there any proposal  made to strip the cavalry., royal artillery or. royal engineers of their resplendent trappings,    although    thiB  probably will follow as a matter of  course.    When the change is made  each infantryman    will    receive two  khaki tunics, one to be kept for parade purposes- only.  .Suggestions   already   are forthcom  ing from the opponents of such a drastic change to khaki. They argue that  it has nothing to recommend it from  an aesthetic point of view. Grey is  considerably more favored as the  most suitable shade, and those who  advocate this are probably not unmindful of the smart appearance the  French infantry present in their new  service dress.  FRENCH EXPERTS MADE AN EX*  AMINATION OP ZEPPELIN IV.  AT LUNEVILLC.  Paris, April 7.-���������Minute descriptions  of the air cruiser Zeppelin IV, which  landed at Luneville and was captured  by the French, are already appearing  In the French newspapers. These descriptions, which were written by ex*  ports, describe the Interior of the airship in detail and show that the fears  of the German army officers and newspapers that the French discovered  some valuable secrets are Well founded.  Many official photos of the Zeppelin  ship were made while she was In the  bands of the French officers. The ex*  perts differ as to whether she Is really  such a terrible engine of war and it is  evident that there will be a long technical controversy oh thia subject.

With each day of this modern age  old records go bv the board and new  standards are set up that to the .initiated are indeed remarkable. For  years we have heard of the onward  sweep of the automobile; we have also,  thought many of us that with the  popularity of the horseless vehicle the  horse must . sink into disuse and  oblivion.  But one great fact Is borne home  to us that the better class of horse Is  in greater demand than ever, costs  moire and is receiving more attention  from breeders. This is proven by the  Intense Interest taken in Vancouver  British Columbia, and* the entire North  West in the sixth annual Vancouver  Horse,Show, which Is scheduled for  April 21st to 26th at Vancouver.  It will ln many respects be a world  beater, location and environment considered. While the Olympia show of  London Is and has always been the  largest in the World, outranking Madison Square Garden Show of New York. ]  It will have 180 classes, of which  71 are for breeding purposes only; It  will have over 1000 blooded exhibits;  award over 700 ribbons, distribute  $8,000 in cash and donate some twenty  magnificent trophies, including the  famous one from the Duke of Connaught for draught horses.  it is tbe one great Social event of  the year!

His colors of purple and gold  flutter from one end of Hastings to  the far end bf Oranvllle; from one end  of Main clear away to the palatial  homes of Shaughnessy Heights.  Six thousand eager devotees of pur  equine friend crowd the only building  on the Pacific Coast entirely devoted  all the year round to the horse; and  the only exclusive horse show building onthe^Cpsst.  The Provincial grant for 1913 was  f 4,000, but so great is the expense connected, with the Horse Show that laat  year the breeding classes alone cost  tbe Association 97,600, and it ts hoped  in the laudable work of the Association the Province will In 1914 increase  the grant.  J. M. Gardbbuse, of Weston, Ont..  will Judge the heavy draught horses  and the 71 classes devoted to breeding; while Captain McCann, of Hood  River, will Judge the light harness  class. s.He has just opened a S 150,000  horse breeding farm in Oregon.  His Excellency the Duke of Connaught will donate again this year the  Connaught Trophy, and it will be  awarded In the heavy draught horse  class. It was won last year by  "Harry," a horse weighing over 2500  lbs.  William J. Clements will be ringmaster. He. is known from coast to  coast. The opening night will be  graced by,the presence of Lieutenant-  Governor Paterson, Sir Richard McBride, Premier of -British Columbia,  and from advance notices a large representation from.Seattle, Portland, Tacoma, Spokane, Victoria, New Westminster, Edmonton Calvary and farther East.

Port Moody, April 8.���������At the inaugural meeting of the council held  yesterday a number of recommendations were outlined which Included  street work, to be done under local  Improvement general bylaw, a bylaw  exempting ordinary improvements  from taxation, the determination of  the source of future water supply and  adequate protection from fire. He also  suggested that the questions ot street  lights and city hall and offices should,  be given prompt attention. Mr: W. J.  Ferguson, B.A., was appointed city  clerk.  STRONG WORD8 FOR PREACHER  During the past few months the  Live Stock Branch of the Dominion  Department of Agriculture has been  in receipt of numerous inquiries as  Xp where lt might be possible to purchase either Angora or Milch goats.  It would appear that in many parts  of the Dominion the demand for these  useful and profitable animals Is rapidly developing and that those who  at present have any surplus stock can  find a ready sale for them If a channel  of communication between aupply and  demand ia established. Accordingly,  as a means of starting a convenient  Directory, of Canadian Breeders ot  Angora Goats and Milch Goats, the  Live Stock Commissioner will be  pleased to receive from such breeders  InformaUoa regardiof their respective flocks covering the following  points:  A few months ago The Western  Watchman, the organ of the Roman  Catholic Church, published a sermon  preached ln St. Louis by Archbishop  Phelan. The following passages in the  Bermon have attracted a good deal of  most unfavorable comment. He said:  "Tell us that we think more ot the  Church than we do of the United  States; of course we do. Tell us we  are Catholics first and Americans or  Englishmen afterwards; of course we  are. Tell us, In the conflict between  the Church and the civil government  we take the side ot the Church; of  course we do. Why, if tbe government of the United States were at war  with the Church we would say tomor.  row, to hell with the government of  the United States; and If the Church  and all the governments of the world  were at war we would say, to hell  They say we are Catholics first and  with all the governments of the world.  Americans decidedly afterwards. There  is no doubt about It. We are Catholics first and we love the Church more  than we love any and all the govern*  ments of tbe world. Let the govern.  1 ments of the world steer clear of the]  'Catholic Church.'* And yet they won*!  der why Protestants hesitate about |  placing Roman Catholics tn positions  of great public responsibility.

A, last Tuesday evening  was a great success from all points  of view. The Imperial Rink, where it  was held was packed to the doors,  there being over 1,500 present. The  exhibition opened with squads at work  on the various pieces of apparatus, and  some clever stunts were pulled off.  Thia was followed by a maze run by  tbe T. M. C. A. A class ot girls followed with a demonstration of marching which was well done. Freehand  exercises followed by a tumbling ex*  bibitton came next, the latter being  one of the best amateur performances  aeen here for some time. Torch  swinging which came next was very  spectacular. A classic dance and a  lawn tennis drill by the girls were'  very gracefully executed. An Indian  club drill, also by the girls, waa  heartily encored. The last event on  the programme was a number of folk  dances, In costume, which were very  pleasing, and the programme was  wound up by every one singing God  Save the King. Much credit, is due  Mr. Maxwell of the Y. M. C. A. and  Miss M. L. Magoun of the Y. W������C. A.  for the success of the exhibition.  Grace; skill and thoroughness characterized the work of all taking part, I  especially the ladies.      7 ' ���������  PHONE ?*\m*mt 1177  PHONE FtirgHHMH4R  ���������'mW- TRANSFER  Express and Paggage  Furniture and Piano Moving  x   Always in Mount Pleasant  PHONE Filrmos.

"Mr. Farley  ftad no more intention of committing  plmaelf with Rowena Wycherly than  fan had, I am certain of it, as sure  a* I shall one day lie in my grave."  He looked at her long and closely.  He bad never, known her to be so tenaciously positive about anything in her  head "back in the room, a twinkle In  bia grey eyes.  "If I should happen to come across  Hunter in my perambulations, aa I to  beam like an anticipatory brother-in-  law?" he asked; "or am I to assume a  stern, stolid eaat of countenance, such  aa I believe is necessary to nip bud*  ding hopes in their infancy?"  "Neither," ahe said, blushing a Uttle; "pretend you don't know anything about it."  "Can't do that," he protested; "the  fellow knows 1 had hie letter this  morning. I'll say we are thinking it  over."  "Felix, one moment. I know you  can't stop how, but tell me, do you  think lt worth while to entertain the  Idea at all?"  "Well, Agnes," he said, coming back  and closing tne door, "that ls tor you  to decide. You must follow the dictates of your own heart, my dear.  From my point of view Jack Hunter  la a splendid fellow, a man of good,  sound, solid principles, a clever, skilful surgeon, and one who has made a  bit of money at hla profession. The  last recommendation will be of service  to blm when he comes Into the title  at hla uncle's death; be will be able  to wear his honors with some assumption of dignity and style. I am pretty,  sure Jack would make an excellent  husband, but you must remember,  Agnes, thirty yeara ls rather a vast  disparity to bridge, aad requires some  cartful pondering. Think It over for a  day or ao, child, then come and talk  it over with me."  The door closed with a substantial  echo; he was gone for good this time,  ' and Agnes waa left with her housewife's duties and a motley boat ot  , thoughts that one abort October day  . had no chance ot disentangling.   Nor  I was ahe any nearer the solution ot her  own love affairs or Paul's strange predicament when at nightfall, wrapped  ln a large fur cloak and a knitted tam-  o'-shanter pulled over ber bronxe hair,  Felix helped her Into the dogcart, and  they drove away laughing and chat*  ting to Weyberne Hall. e  It was a merry party which .aat  down to enjoy the hospitality of  Sir Thomas's board. Tbe ball, of  course, was the chief.topic of conversation, ' although there was some extraneous matter worthy of discussion.  For instance, the approaching wadding  in the Hargrave family; and Mlas Patricia Primrose bad become engaged  tn Hubert Graham after twenty yeara  of devotion and romantic wooing. As  an Inevitable result ot this miraculous  event the barrister was in a festive  mood, in the seventh heaven ot delight, and unable in his great bliss to  let bia eyes rove far from bis ladylove's dark piquant face as she sat  smiling and daintily sipping a glass  of chartreuse.

The scalloped oysters, tbe soup, and  the fish had already come and gone,  and no convenient season had yet arrived.

"Wbo? ������V~hy yoa yooraelt I should  Imagine. I venture to think no one  else would Interfere In Qie matter."  "How did such an interesting piece  ef Intelligence come to your knowledge?" he asked, biting his Up, and  twisting his long fingers round his  wine-glass.  "I read lt In tbe paper, ln the Times,  tbla morning. You are Paul Farley, of  New York, eh?"  The stem of the wineglass snaooet-  ln two. He caught the upper half,  emptied the wine Into a tumbler, and  removed the broken pieces from the  cloth to his plate. The lull around the  table had drifted Into silence, a deadly  silence. All eyes were turned expect*  antly on his white face; he opened  hiB lips to speak, thought better of it,  and held his peace.  "I beg your pardon if I have been  too premature," Graham, said, feeling  he had somehow got his, foot Into an  uncomfortable ruck, "but seeing It advertised, I thought the engagement  was signed, sealed, all settled up, duly  stamped, and the state of affairs public property. Have you not seen the  paper?"  "Not to-day . This la the first I've  heard of it, and I think there must be  some mistake. I don't believe I have  the distinction of being the only Paul  Farley in the States."  "The Times, Jamea,"Graham said,  shortly, without further argument.  When the paper came he found the  place, folded it neatly, and passed it  across the table to Paul. He read the  paragraph several times over, and  finally dropped It on the floor beside  blm.  "If tbat statement la not correct,  some kind, jovial friend given to practical joking has been playing tricks  with you, Mr. Farley."  "I waa not engaged wben that notice waa sent to the paper, I-���������"  "Well, you've not been much forestalled, the lady or her friends probably were anxious to clench matters;  that's merely a detail, ou���������"  , "Hang lt all, Farley!" Sir Thomas  exclaimed testily, "are yon or are you  not engaged to Mra. Wycherly?"  Bereft of momentary speech, he sat  staring down at the remains of cheese  and biscuit and broken glass on his  plate. Eventually he looked at Sir  Thomas in a dull sort of way, and  moistened his lips. Then, suddenly,  pushing his chair back, be rose and  stood a minute holding on to the back.  , "Let's have it before you make a  bolt of It, if tbat'a your dodge." Sir  Thomas exclaimed, laughing boisterously. "God bless my soul! You sly  dog! HOw and when did you manage  the courting? You've some presence  of mind to aspire to the best catch in  the county. Come, we all want" to  offer our good wishes. Are you really  going to marry our charming neighbor?"  "YeB���������no���������I don't know���������at least I  suppose so," he said, in a limp, nerveless way.   "I mean I really���������"  Whatever he was about to repudiate  or acknowledge waa never uttered, for  Judith, who had been gazing at him  with white face and frightened eyea,  gave a little cry, swayed forward, then  sideways, swooned, and fell with an  ugly thud to the floor.  "Keep your. seat. Pelham," Felix Insisted, springing up and pressing Anthony back into hla seat. "I'll see to  Judith."  He carried her out,, and placed her  , in a chair in the hall, where the door  was ajar, and the night wind blew  straight in from among the bending,  creaking trees. Lady Hargrave, her  Silken skirts raised and. hung over one  arm, followed, and Paul, who held the  door open for ber to.pass out,, went  also.  "Smelling salts?" Felix asked laconically.  She looked about her, distressed,  for the moment she bad no Idea where  to search. Paul remembered seeing  Miss Primrose sniff at a violet cut-  glass bottle during dinner, and! be  turned quietly back to tbe room and  asked her tor it. Without a word be  slipped it into tbe Squire's band,  walked to the ball door, pulled lt wide  back, and looked out at the -night* A  few minutes of intense quietude ensued before Judith stirred, made an  Inarticulate sound in her throat, then  spoke clearly, in a weak, querulous  tone.  "What ls lt?" she asked ,an impulse  of curiosity flickering among bet  heavy thoughts.  "Why, the beat ot the room, my  dear, turned you a little faint," Lady  Hargrave said soothingly. "I am  afraid we have alarmed poor Anthony."  "Anthony? No, not Anthony; tt was  Paul, yes, Paul said be was going to  marry Mrs.. Wycherly. He told me  laat nlgbt���������we were, dancing, when he  said he wouldn't marry Mrs. Wycherly  or Agnes, or anybody, and now���������"  "Hush," Lady Hargrave Implored,  looking round In consternation. "My  dear, the servants, Mr. Far���������"  "Hush, Indeed!" she exclaimed, her  eyes ablaxe with feverish, excitement,,  her cheeks like a peony. "For my part  I think It's time 1 spoke. I've consented to marry Anthony against my  will, against my better judgment,  against my Inclination, to please Paul  Varley; you understand, both of you.  to please him, and him alone. 1  thought I could: do anything he aaked  me, aad so 1 could except���������"  A strong, energetic hand cam*  through Paul's arm, gripped lt flrariy  'and marched bim over the gravel, and  ���������away from the house.  "We will take a Urn up to the* private road and back, and go to tbe  drawing-room by way of the conaorva-  tory and library, lf It's all tbe same to  you, Farley?" Felix aald with quiet  gravity, "it's poor sport listens** to  the unwholesome raving of an bystort-  cal woman, mare especially when  you've nursed her on your knee and  petted her as a sweet. Innocent little  child."  "I cannot help thinking that Miss  Judith Is very perverse," he made answer.  "Women are perverse. I sometimes  think It's this aggravating perverse-  aess, tbla eaprldousnesa hi a measure  tbaf attracts our sex. I believe a man  la more influenced, more attracted by  moods, than beauty. However, wa  won't discuss Judith, we won't by  word or thought add one grain, one  k>te. to Lady Hargrave'* trouble.  Apropos of nothing but my own  thoughts, what do you think of Cecilia  Hay?"  "What do I think of her?" he asked  slowly. "I think she la a good, dull,  plodding, praiseworthy girl. I don't  feel to have much ln common wltb  her; still, that Is my loss, not hers.  What are you thinking -yourself, sir?"  "Well, I'm thinking I never saw her  to greater advantage than to-night,  Farley, perhaps In contradistinction  to Judith, but she seems to look at life  In a serious, capable way.

Even the doctors seem puzzled, and they are not doing her  any good.  How often we hear statements  like the above. Are you in such  a condition If so; you should  consult a Chiropractor. Have  you friend or relation who is in  such a state? If so, you should  tell him to see a Chiropractor.  A Chiropractor knows that all  disease is .incoordination between the various parts of the  body���������lack of harmony between  the brain and the tissue cells.  This is caused by pressure of  nerves. The Chiropractor by a  skilful movement of his hands on  the spine of the sick person! removes the pressure. The nerveB  which have been dormant by reason of the pressure again become  active, and Nature by this means  'effects a cure.  The Chiropractor never claims  to cure. AH he does is to remove the pressure and thus open  the door for Nature to do her  wonderful work.  The Chiropractor never worries himself or the patient by  seeking to give a name to the  trouble. The trouble is simply  an effect for which there must  be a cause. "Every, effect has a  7 cause." So the Chiropractor  1 finds the cause, removes it, and  then in the ordinary course of  things the effect should cease.  There is a magazine published,  in Toronto, named "The Canadian Chiropractor." If you  would like a copy, ask for one  at the addres below. It is free  for the asking, and will tell you  things worth knowing.  [Ernest Shaw, D.C.  Chiropractor.  250 22nd Avenue East  (Close to Main St.)  )ffice Hours:  1:30 to 6.  Free.

The Way of the Transgressors Is Hard  Paul, with his cap on the back of his!  head, his Inverness thrown open, exposing a conspicuous expanse of shirt-  front, stood In the rustic doorway of  the Fleming's summer-house waiting  for Agnes. He looked at hla watch,  put it back in his fob/and was fumbling for his cigarette case, when he  heard the fall of light, approaching  footsteps. I  Presently    she   stood   before   him  dressed in a blue velvet toque and a  neat tweed coat and skirt. Just as she j  had driven with the Squire to the Horticultural Show.  "Are you only Just back?" he aaked,  surprised. "I heard wheels and a vehicle drive round to the front about ten  minutes ago."  "Don't apeak ao loud," aha aald, in  an undertone. "Felix Is Just over  there ln the stables. The mare had  two shoes come loose, and we had to  walk, her several miles before - we  came across a blacksmith. Felix is  rather put out at the animal being  carelessly sent that distance* without  proper inspection."  "I wonder how long he will stay  there?" he said, rather nettled.  "Till he'a given Ralph a bit of hla  mind, which he can do to some purpose lf he finds his easy-going, good-  natured rule or authority Imposed  upon."  "Well, come in." he said, In the tone  of one who was going to make the  best of a trying circumstance; "I can  tell you all I want you to know In a  quarter of an hour."  A touch of frost in the air combined  with the dampnees. of the. crazy bench  prevented all idea of sitting to enjoy  a whispered tete-a-tete. To a certain  extent the little thatched summer-  house was. secluded, so they felt fairly  tonVa's Ter^h^^^^  she can persuade a kindly-disposed  squire of gentleman at large to offer  ber his home���������that- is to say, a  strong Substantial chair and a table,  representing good square meals, she  will end by going out into the world  as an upper servant, or a lady help."  "That is the unkihdest and the bitterest thing I have ever heard you  say, Farley."  "I feel bitter," he said, laughing unnecessarily loud. "I have had enough  to make me feel so these last few days.  What fellow likes to think of his  friend, his dear chum, contemplating  matrimony? Think of the fishing, the  shooting, the driving, the hours, the  happy hours in the keeping-room, it  can never be the same again."  - "I am not contemplating marriage,  at least not yet, though some vother  folks are, I trow.

She's not brilliant, but I think she  would make me a comfortable, agreeable wife, and 1 would not hang back  If it were not for the fear of after  wards meeting a woman I could really  love. I have strong affections, strong  domestic tendencies, and if later on���������  though married to a nice good girl like  Cecilia���������she came, 1 am afraid, terribly afraid I should���������revolt. Will you  pass in first?"  In the conservatory they found  Agnes fanning herself under a palm.  She smiled r.ud patted tbe vacant seat  beside her, and Paul dropped obe  diently into it with a sight of relief.  "I shan't stop for a cigar with Sii  Thomas," Felix said, looking from one  to the other. "I'll have the mare put  in. I suppose I shall find you here,  Agnes, lf I come back in ten minutes?"  "Oh, we'll be here," Paul laughed;  "I'm dead beat, glued to my chair.  I could sit here ten hours."  "Paul," she whispered, as the  Squire's tall form disappeared through  the doorway, "how badly you have  managed!"  "Execrable management it must  seem to you.  I muBt tell you the whole  the entrance facing one another, Paul  with his left hand on her right shoulder. She clasped her sable collarette  higher to her throat, for the wind came  over from the plantation and caught  the entry at the angle where; she  stood. Her feet were numb, and she  chafed her blue fingers, hoping the  energetic friction would circulate the  blood.   ''You should have* brought your  muff," he said, regretfully, taking one  of her hands and holding it between  ola.   ���������;  "How warm your hands are," she  said, looking at him in the semi-darkness.  "I don't feel the cold a bit," he answered smiling, "and, a tew years ago,  I used to have the moat wretched chilblains. But you see, Agnes," he added seriously, "I am better housed and  better ted than I've been In my life,  and I drink a good deal ot wine both  at luncheon and dinner, and always a  flass of whiskey or other spirit before  go to bed. Well-nourished blood is  thick and warm, and keeps ..out the  cold."  "I've heard, Paul, an easy conscience  Is the best cosmetic there is," she said,  with a clinging pressure on his hand;  "but in.your case, you naughty thing,  I think it's the good living, the creature, comfoi-ts, your general well-being,  that's made such an improvement in  you. It's rather unfortunate, taking  Mrs. Wycherly and Judith into consideration, but you certainly grow better looking every day!"  He dropped the hand he was rubbing, caught her round the shoulders,  laid her back upon his arm, and kissed  her.  A boisterous gust of wind swept  across the plantation, bending the  pines and bringing with it the incense  from the woods. It came into the  shrubbery moaning a little, and a  Bhower of acorns fell wltb a rattle on  the roof and sides of the summer-  house. Paul lifted hia head at tbe un*  familiar sound, and his dark, amused  eyes lighted upon the Squire's tall  form standing a couple of yards from  them, witb his hands behind him,  strong, lithe, and perfect aa a young  tree.  The sight seemed to paralyze him.  Thunderstruck, and a roaring in his  ears, he remained for a moment in a  stooping posture, staring fixedly ��������� at  the man's white face and fearless  blazing eyes. Agnes twisted herself  round in his arms, lifting her face to  his, wondering at his rigid stiff stillness. The movement snapped the tension, his arms released, gave a warning pressure as he stood her roughly  on her feet and turned her bo that  she faced Felix.  "Go Indoors, Agnes!" he commanded in a tone neither of them had ever  heard before. "I bave a word or two  to say to Mr. Farley."  She came out with an averted face,  but gave one glance at the suppressed  rage and fury in his glittering eyes  as she passed him, and stopped.  . "I am waiting for you to go In," he  repeated, scarcely able to control his  voice.  What are you going to do?" ahe  suggestion of Impurity thrown otatr  hla foolish though innocent antic. He  turned hot and cold, and shrank from  meeting the Squire's bright, scornful S.  eyes with the unfamiliar, knowing expression the subject under discussion  had brought into them.  "Answer me ��������� instantly!" Felix  shouted, taking a step towards him.  "No," he said quickly, "of course, I  waa not forced, but I was-not aware I  was doing anything wrong, or treating  Miaa Fleming in a way that a lady���������"  The Squire seized him by the collar,  jerked him round, and hla startled  eyea caught sight of the leather thong  of his rldlng-whlp.  "One moment," he protested, struggling fruitlessly in the Squire'* steel  grip, "don't Btrike me before you know  the rights of the caae, or yoa may be  sorry for it afterwards."  "Sorry!" he mimicked, with a grim  laugh, "sorry for thrashing a well-behaved suave reptile like you? I am  going to protect my slater's good  name, safeguard her reputation, and  teach you how to control your lower  nature, how to treat what you may  style a 'good woman,' and punish you  tor tampering with a woman tor, whom  you have assured me over and over  again you had no other feeling than  ordinary: friendship, and to whom you  would on no account bind yourself;  also for holding .embracing, and caressing my sister aa you might any  draggle-tailed wench on the, streets."  - Paul struggled round to face him aa  best_he could. _  ���������    _   (To be Continued)  Students Gathered  At Annual Banqoet  The sixth annual banquet of tha  Vancouver Law Students' Society,  which was held at the University Clak-  on Saturday evening- waa an enjoyable  j-affair.

Friday. April 11,1913  V  Notes From Ottawa  (Continued from page 1)  "Wa* an utterance well prepared and excellently  delivered.  A Western Ontario member who stands close  to the ministry and is always to be counted upon  ��������� in any changes that may take place during the  next few years is Mr. Joseph E. Armstrong, member for East Lambton. Mr. Armstrong made a  name for himself while the Conservative party  were in Opposition, hot only as a sound critic of  the Government of the day, but along constructive  lines as well, for there was no man who contributed more in the House to the bringing into  baing of the great idea of rui*al. mail delivery.  This session he is seeing brought about another  great idea that he has long advocated���������namely a  system of parcels post. ?o postal matters in general Mr. Armstrong gave a great amount of attention during days of Opposition, spending  weeks at a time in investigating at first hand the  working ont of big postal problems in the United  States. That the Liberal Government on the eve  of the election of 1908 seized his rural delivery  idea in its entirety and took to itself credit for  the same did not to any great extent detract from  lite fact that it was to the member for East  Lambton the House and the country owed the  debt for tiie information and argument that had  made the carrying out of the project so comparatively easy. ^  This session Mr. Armstrong has done some of  his best work in committee. He has been particularly prominent in the Banking and Agricultural Committees, his share in the work of  the latter having been noteworthy. There are  few men who, taking it all around, stand nearer  to the cabinet rank.  ' The close of the week found the Liberal party  again proclaiming their intention of obstructing  the navy bill and of holding up all public business; It remains to be seen to what extent they  wilt carry out the threats they were making on  , Friday and Saturday, but it indicates at least  that the wing of the party that is led by Hon.  .William Pugsley is in control.  , The followers of the ex-minister of public  woriTs are boasting that they will turn the House  ���������f ^Commons into a "bear garden" and that the  disgraceful scenes of Saturday, March 15, will  loon like a pink tea or a Quaker prayer meeting  in comparison. It was Puglsey who was responsible for the rowdy scenes of that memorable  Saturday night, and apparently the ex-minister is  M-epared to still lower the Parliament of Canada.  'f'tigsiey is ambitious to be the successor of Sir  ���������Wilfrid t*wier-���������that is an open secret at Ottawa.  ' Re has taken this notorious way of going about  it. TJlie needs of the Empire, Canada's duty to  England, and the self-respect of the Dominion,  all must be sacrificed tosatisfy the personal ambi-  ij*om # Mr.. Pugsley and1 a few ex-cabinet ministers. As for the position of the Government, it  js clear as,4t h������s been for a long time. The Government wilt not submit to minority rule, and has  go intention of dissolving Parliament just to suit  file fancy of discredited politicians.- If the bill  is aj-ain abstracted and Parliamentary anarchy is  again instituted a change of the rules will be  Jjtfde so that while free speech can be protected,  ������; minority cannot put spokes into the wheels of  the Government, and cannot hold up the King's  business, jf the naval bill can be passed without  ������ti������h an amendment to the rules so much the  better,- but passed it must be.  ' It was very plain in the later part of the week  that Pugsley was in control or was trying to get  it. He objected at every turn to the passing of  the one-sixth of the estimates. He was finally  very reluctantly forced to agree. When the Japanese treaty came up Sir Wilfrid announced that  the bill would be allowed to go through without  practically any debate.. They were not opposed  to the bill. - But Pugsley apparently over-rode  him, assumed command, and it took two days solid  talking on subjects which were worn threadbare  to get the measure through. The main point iii  the Japanese treaty was the clause reserving to  Canada the right to contrpl its own immigration  affairs. The difference between the policy of the  old Government and the present Administration  was clearly illustrated by Premier Borden. The  late Government dealt with the excess of immigration into Canada from Japan by an appeal  to the Government of Japan. "Our view," said  the Premier, "is that while friendly with Japan  and ready to co-operate in the broadest way,, and  while we have confidence that the Japanese Government will carry out loyally the arrangement  made, yet final control will be with the Parliament  and the Government of Canada. When this bill  becomes law it will retain to Canada the control  over immigration from Japan as from all countries of the world.v  ..;;.,.'.,..  H. H. Stevens, membfei- for V&neouverj who is  recognized as an authority on the question of  Asiatic immigration also emphasized this point  in an able speech dealing with the question.  "The restriction of immigration," explained  Mr. Stevens, "was instituted voluntarily by the  Japanese Government, as a result of the agitation  in British Columbia, and the repeated demands of  the Imperial Government and:Tthe Government of  British Columbia has resulted, up to the present,  in keeping immigration from Japan within reasonable bounds. The Prime Minister stated. this  afternoo^-tbjftt so far as this agreement, or voluntary restriction of immigration from Japan, is  concerned;.hVwould be continued by the Japanese  Government, and that will satisfy the people of  British Columbia that the present Government of  Canada is alive to its duties and ready to protect  the interests of the country. I "believe that this  is a dignified agreement, and a dignified method  to deal with this question. The people of Japan  have said that this provision of our bill does not  offend them, that it does not affect their national  dignity or their national pride; and at the same  time, the immigration is duly and properly restricted."  In closing he said: "I conclude by congratulating the Government upon making this very  satisfactory arrangement, an arrangement that  we in the West have looked forward to for many  years. - -| would suggest to this Government the  advtoWHty of opening with China negotiations  along the same line. I have had the pleasure of  travelling in the Orient, both in Japan and in  China, to:some considerable extent, and I can  assure you, Mr. Speaker and this House, that the  time is coming at no very distant day when it  will be an exceedingly advisable thing for a  country to have commercial relations with these  eastern countries. I hope the Bight Honorable the  Prime Minister will take that into his consideration* and i������ the. proper time and in the proper  way" Will liriWgyin some such measure as that now  before lis."  t  IheM Real Bargain" Haniware Store  OP QAUUTY AND QUANTITY  The CHARM Steel Ranges  Made for us and guaranteed by one of  the oldest Canadian manufacturers.

'From the days of Garibaldi to the present they have been cutting loose  from that .strange "New Religion,*' until they  insist on having their destiny in their own hands.  They say in clear and strong terms to the whole  world, including the priests of that "New Religion," that henceforth their children must learn  in the national schools, and all hindrances and  hinderers thereto must stand baek or be swept  aside.  Here, in Vancouver, we have large numbers ,  of the sons and daughters of Italy; and even  here they are pestered with numerous attempts  made to prevent their children receiving a free,  .first-class, national education. But to our Italian  ' citizens we would say stand Sua, hold to the high  lines of intellectual manhood, freedom aud independence. Let no man, no> eleric, no soul on  earth, fool on frighten you and your c&Uditen out  of your glorious Canadian inheritance. Go to-the  public schools) to the^ high s-thoojs, end to our  colleges if you are to be successful iu the highest  walks of life in your adopted Cltwadiau home. If  you are satisfied with a third rate place amongst  our citizens you���������������������������can succeed by giving up your  children's' educational rights and intellectual  freedom to those who would control you and  drag you down to a level with Italy in the days  of her worst and in her degradation.  My interest in my country and in all Jier citizens makes it expedient for me to write this short  epistle.  THE SACRED OAK OP SCRIPTURE.  A few quotations will gjive us an insight into  the importance of the Oak ef the Bible.  "Jacob hid them under the Oak which was by  Shechem."  "And there came an angel of the Lord and sat  under an Oak which was in 0-phra."  "Gideon brought broth to the angel under the  Oak."  "They found the man of God sitting-under an  Oak."  "They buried Saul and his sons under the Oak  in Jabesh."  "They had idols under every thick Oak,"  "And Joshua wrote these words in a book in  the Law; of God, and took a great stone and set  it up under an Oak by the sanctuary  of  the  Lord."  "They buried Deborah beneath Bethel under  an Oak."  In Isaiah 44-14 we read that the Oak was used  in making images for worship.  In Hosea 443:   "They sacrifice under Oaks,.','  Zecb.11-2:  "Howl, 0 ye Oaks of Bashan."  There are many other passages which show  that the oak was held in esteem and was a sacred  tree among the Israelites of old>.  No wonder thst their descendants, the Druids,  held the oak as a sacred tree.  In fact, the more carefully we look into the  wbole history of the Druids and compare with  ancient Israel, the more surely we must become  interested in the wonderful similarity. Conviction of IDENTITY has come to very many  students who scan the whelg Ehe of identical  characteristics.
