Speaks Optimistically of Con- 
ditions in Canada — States 
That Progress in Dominion 
Will Continue,. ; 

The exercises at the Provincial 
militia encampment at Sidney have 
been notable not only for the enthu- 
siasm displayed by the rank and tile 
but (or the interest talcen by the gen- 
trii public. During the pa^t two days 
crowds of visitors have witnessed the 
manoeuvres. In the upper picture the 
drums of the Sixth Duke of Con- 
naught's Own Rifles are seen on the 
march. The lower picture shows prac- 
tice with a Alaxim gun. Tomorrow 
should prove the most interesting day 
of the cncamrment, for it is scheduled 
for the combined forces to make an 
"attack" upon the City of Victoria.

said Sir Thomas Shaugnessy. president 
of the C. P. R.. today. He added: 

"It Is impossible to push the vari- 
ous works we purpose through fast 
enough for that. I only wish we could. 
But we are preparlni? to set aside that 
sum for various improvements and ex- 
tensions which win he pushed through

In conflrniingr the report that the 
e'. P R. would this year make appro- 
priations amounting to |1 00,001'. OOO to

partments, Sir Thomas Shaugne.'sy 
spoke optimistically of the general 
financial conditions in Canada. •

Surpr)s(» has been expressed in eome 
quarters that the rallwa.v was prepar-

present tightness of th» money market. 

"Do you think that the present finan- 
cial situation will shortly be relieved?" 
Sir Thomas was asked. 

"I do not think that the situation Is 
at all serloiLS," lie replied, " and I be- 
lieve that whatever financial stringency 
exists will be short lived. The scarcity 
of money is due chiefly to the great

Crater of Vesuvius Emitting 

ROME. .Tune 28. — Extensive earth- 
([uake shocks occurred in the southern 
part of Italy this morning, with the re- 
sult that exaggerated reports were cir- 
culated, describing the dlsturhances as 
a grave disaster, with a large number 
of victims. Official information was 
received by the Minister of the Interior 
that the earthquake caused no damage 
In the province of Catana/.aro ami was 
scarcely felt at Messina. &ome hoiisps 
were damaged. ho%vpvcr. in the villages 
of Paola, Rossano-Marlna, San Marico 
and other small places near Cosenza. 
Some of the Inhabitants of these vil- 
lages are reported to have been slight- 
ly injured.

XAri.,ES. June 2!?. — For the first 
tlino since 1906, flames were observed 
today shootlnsr up frotn Mount Vesuvius. 
Three sllglit earthquakes occurred prior 
to this, and the uppermost crater of 
Vesuvius emitted a dense column of 
i-nioke. which frequently showed strik- 
ing reflections of flames lower down, 
with an occasional eruption of fire. 

Prnf. Mercalli, director of the ob- 
servatory, reports that the lava 
streams, which were recently observed, 
are becoming contlnuotis. He expressed 
the opinion tonight that the seismic 
movement on Mpunt Vesuvlu."* had no 
connection with the earthquake In the 
Calbria di.'^trict, altliouijii tie considered 
the coincidence «uriirl,sliig. He said the 
Vesuvius eruption wa.s <lue to the re- 
cent heavy rains filtering through 
cracks In the crater.

C08ENZA, Calbria, Italy, .lune 28.— 
The great disaster In Sicily and Cal- 
bria In 160* w-»B brought forcibly to 
mind today by a Series of earthquake 
- shockB. which appeareil graver than 
, they really wer« owing to the panic 
they cAUMd. The people rushed out of 
their houses, terror-stricken at the first 
•hock, and ran, screaming and imploring 
T oMercy. They are now camping In the 
..aV«n fieldft or In undercround grottooa. 


The troop.'i at Sidney thoroughly en- 
joyed their evening in camp on Frl' / 
night after the strenuous labors of » 
day. There was a general feeling that 
they had acquitted themselves credit- 
ably before one of the greatest generals 
of llie lime, and that they have it In 
them with more training to do hetter 
yet. Now they are looking forward with 
the keenest interest to the more realis- 
tic work in the field on Monday and^ 
Tuesday, wheh the Victoria Fusiliers," 
aided by the 104th, the Fifth and other 
corps will practice under war conditions 
tlie defence of Victoria, while the 72nd 
and 6th intend to show how the invasion 
of some other country s-Siould be done. 

Yesterday the camp awoke to face a 
heavy rainstorm soon after 6 o'clock. 
This, however, soon passed away, and 
another glorious day followed. In fact 
the exceptiohally fine weather that has 
marked thi.<i period of training Is loked 
upon as a happy omen for future camps, 
and scornfiil comparisons were made be- 
tween this and the weather too often ejc- 
perionced in previous years by another 
local corps. The morning was spent in 
regimental drill, including the placing 
of outposts, skirmishing and so on. and 
in the afternoon more company drill took 
place and the 104th again went out for 
a battalion march. 

Camp Sports 
About 4 o'clock sports for the whole 
brigade were announced, and a huge 
crowd assembled In front of the head- 
<iuarters tent to watch. The first rac«, 
100 yards, was won by Private J. Holt, 
of the 104th. and then came the Officers' 
handicap, over the same distance pre- 
sumably at weight for age. This was 
run In full dress, just as they hapi)ened 
to be cIothe<l at the time, coats, spurs 
and all. Captain Bray of the Ordance 
was the limit m'an, with a start of 29 
yards, and close behind him C<onel 
Leckie and Captain MacManus toed the 
2.5 yard mark. Altogether some score of 
officers started, but the issue was never 
in doubt, as Captain Bray had too long 
a start, and. going faster the farther 
he went, ran home an easy winner from 
Captain MacManus, who Just headed the 
Colonel of the Seaforths across the line. 
Then an Item, not on the official pro- 
gramme, was Introduced by a comic band 
from the Highlanders' lines. A drum 
major with a glowing beard and a mar- 
velous Jersey appeared on the scene, 
fiilloweil by a strapping HIelan' lassie 
heating a tin can and then numerous 
other scarecrows not dressed "according 
to Cocker," btit provoking all the more 
merriment for that. After passing dowrt 
the line they paid a visit to their of- 
ficers, who were helng entertained at the 
mess tent of the 88th, and then retired 
gracefully to their lines, after being re- 
fused entry for th« next race, 

This next race was for the bandsmen, 
the condition being that each runner 
must produce a continuous noise on his 
Instrument from start to finish. This 
brought out bandsmen with every con- 
ceivable band Instrument, a big drum, 
the pipes, oboes, bugles and everj' kind 
of brass Instrument. The big drum and 
bass horn were girSh a start of ten 
yards and to »• perfect torrent Of sound 
the race started. It was won easily by 
the bugler of the «th, and proved as 
great a success as the officers' race. 

The half mile was won by Holt of the 
I04fh by fifteen yards from Parlter of 
the 72nd.

Today church parade will b» held at 
S;.'»0 a. m. when the Rsv. and Hsn. Cap- 
tain J. S. Henderson of th« 104th will

will be given up to entertaining visitors, 
for whom the bands of th« different 
regiments. It is wpacted. Will furnish 
concerts. The band Of thf »«th goes out

ties '^concerning the Home Rule Bill 
have arisen in the cabinet, occasioning 
much discussion respecting Ulster. Sir 
Edward Grey has been urging that the 
opinion of taken into consid- 
eration before passing the bill Into

by Mr. Lewis Harcourt. the colonial 

Amendment necessary 

In addition, a fat*l flaw ''has been 
rtl.<scovered in the finances of the bill, 
necessitating the amendment before 
Home Rule can become operative. A» 
the Unionists would oppose the amend- 
ment, thus oonipclUng the Government 
to employ the Parliament Act separately 
on the amendment, this would postpone 
the coming Into effect of the Homo 
Rule Bill until the Autumn of 1915 at 
the earliest. 

Considerable consternation has been 
caused among Home Rulers, and this 
accounts for the freyuent meeUngs of 
the cabinet, which have been exciting

Mr. F. H, Shephed, M. P,, 
Says Engineer Is Now Busy 
With Preliminary Operations 
of Undertaking, 

since th<^ prorogation of the Dominion 
Parliament little hss been heard locally 
about the application of the various ap- 
propriations provided for In the esti- 
mates applying to this part of the coun- 
try, -but this condition of things was 
ngreeably altered yesterday by the ar- 
rival In the c'.ty of Mr. F. H. Shepherd 
M. P., for Nnnalmo, who stated that the 
preliminary negotiations connected with 
the conntnictlon of the drydock at Es- 
ciuiinalt are already under way. 

In speaking of this important topic 
yesterday, Mr. Shepherd said that the 
premier appropriation of the session, so 
far as this Province was <'oncerned, 
was that relating to the drydock: "And 
it Is part of my business," he added, 
"to be here in the city at tills time to 
confer with my colleagues. Messrs. G. 
H. Hamard, M. P., and P. F. Green, 
M. P.. with a view to having things ar- 
ranged BO as to obviate any unneces- 
sary delay In the matter. I may also 
say that Mr. MacT.ochlan, the public 
works engineer for Vancouver Island, 
already has the matter In hand, and Is 
now entering Into the preliminary ne- 
gotiations Involved In the undertaking 
at this stage of the problem. It Is no 
part, of my business, nor Is It really 
public Information, to go Into any ex- 
planation of what these negotiations 
are; the Important thing Is that the 
matter Is being attended to, and that 
no time Is being lost about It.

"Of course it Is still too e.^rIy to 
sptak about the letting of a contract, 
but I think the public may rest assured 
that that formality, if such-a ttting may 
be so described, will be hurried along 
as speedily as may be consistent -with 
the eflSclent cxe<3utlon of the preliminary 
details, which In a case of this kind. 
Involving an enormous expenditure of

able. the Americans arriving 
on the steamer were Mr. H. H. Haas 
and wife, of Guayamas. Mr. Haas Is 
the agent of an express company in 
that city. He said the agency was still 
running, but, owing to the hostility of

pelled to sleep on tables In the paloon 
of the steamer. 

Messrs. J. A. Btirke, M. M. Currier and 
F. W. Shel borne declare they were es-

■WASHINGTON. D. C, June 28.— Im- 
patient at the delay In getting the tariff 
bill before the Senate, administration 
leaders, headed bv Chairman Simmons, 
of the Finance Commltte*^, spurred the 
Democrats to action today In the tar- 
rlff caucus, and tonight consideration of 
all the sr.heduiea practically had been 
completed. During the day the caucus 
approved the wool manufactures, silk, 
paper and flax, hemp and jute schedules, 
and tonight took up sundries and the 
free list, to be followed on Monday by 
consideration of the administrative fea- 
tures of the Income tax section. 

Surprlaing to many of the Senators, 
the caucus passed through the commit- 
tee amendments today without much 
friction, and nif" changes were made in 
any of the schedules, although at the rs- 
quest of the committee a few Items of 
the wool schedule were referred back.

The Hon. the Minister of Mllltla. 
Colonel Sam Hughes, with bir Ian 
Hamilton and their staff, left yester- 
day by the midday boat on their way 
to the camp at SewcU, Manitoba, where 
they are due early next week. From 
there they proceed direct to Ottawa. 

8ir Ian Hamilton, just tiefore starting 
yesterday morning. In answer to a re- 
quest for his Impressions of the troops 
at Sidney as he .-jaw them, both on par- 
ade and In the tactical demonstration 
In the field, said that, of course, any 
report on their efficiency must be first 
made direct to the military authorities 
at Ottawa, but this he would say, that 
he saw enough to Assure him of the 
keen soldierly spirit that Inspired all 
ranks, ahd that, considering that the 
review took place on the first day of 
camp.* he considered the brigade acquit- 
ted themselves very creditably. It 
would be understood that It was not by 
choice that this review had to be held 
on so early a day In the period of 
training, but that the multiplicity of 
engagements compelled matters to be 
BO arranged. 

Speaking of Victoria's own regiment, 
the 88th Fusiliers, Sir Ian said that he 
recognljed at a glance the excellent 
type of men that were being enlisted. 
They had the root of the matter In 
them, and no doubt were putting their 
hands In their pockets to serve. On 
being Informed that each man paid 15 
to Join and turned back the whole of 
his pay to the regimental funds, &lr Ian 
remarked: "Well, that Is what I call 
volunteering in excelsls, and with such 
a spirit there can be no doubt of tha 
future of Colonel Hall's raglmant

Among those present from Victoria

Surgeon and P. E. James. 

Reports of committees and oWcials 
showed that the organization was In 
an excellent condition, and fast In- 
crer.?'n.» In influence. Progress, In con- 
nection with the steps the society Is 
taking towards securing the passage 
of a Registration Act by the Provincial 
Legislature, was reported, the general 
tenor of the report brought up In this 
connection being sanguine of a success- 
ful termination to the efforts towards 
legislation which will put the British 
Cohimhla architects on the same basis 
as those of the same profession In otHcr

LONDON, June 28. — It Is said tha 
Government is completely satisfied with 
the results of the working of the ao- 
called "Cat and Mouse Act,' by which 
convicted militant suffragettea are re- 
leased when they are very ill from 
hunger strikes and are returned to jail 
when they are convalescent. Offences 
of the militants and hunger strikes have 
both decreased since the law was en- 
acted. The Government will continue to 
enforce the law. 

•■Xnnger Btrlkefl" Deereaae 
It Is claimed that the effect of thla 
act In deterring hunger strikes is par- 
ticularly noticeable, although since Mrs. 
Pankhurst's last release the leaders have 
been trying to secure half a dosen 
"mice" who escaped; but the police 
know that they have all left the coun- 
try. If they return they will be arrested. 
In view of the fact that the members 
of the suffragette party have taken a 
house at Henley-on-Thames, Scotland 
Yard has sent thirty plain-clothes men 
into th«(t vicinity to guard against any 
outrages, while the regular number of 
uniformed men In the neighborhood has 
been doubled. :

Tomorrow's 'ManovnTras 

On Monday morninR tlie manoeuvres 
in the field begin. The general idea of 
the ^.scheme has been prepared by Major 
Gardiner, the general staff officer for 
the camp, who Is an officer In the B.^rd 
Sikhs, and is the deputation officer lent 
by the Indian, army to Canada. During 
the Winter he has been attached to the 
Royal Military Collegs at Kingston, and 
Since the Spring has been attached to 
different camps throughout Canada. 

The scheme on which the troops will 
operate throughout Monday and Tues- 
day Ik as follows; "Red barid," an over- 
sea power, Is at war with ^'Bluo 
I.,nnd." Vancouver Island. Red Land 
has gained command of the sea. and on 
the evening of June 29, the G. O. C. at 
Victoria recelve.-s information that * 
strong Red fle(«t has arrived off .Sidney 
Island, and that Red torpedo boats have 
approachrd Sidney, and that It Is prob- 
ably intended to land troops at 8ldn<y 
nnd make a combined attack on Victoria. 

All available Blue forces are at once 
assembled at Victoria, and the 88th and 
104th Regiments are pushed out to- 
wards Sidney to reconnoitre, while the 
5th Regiment and othf^r forces, consist- 
ing of cadets from the Knlverslty 
.School, will assist in covering tha city, 
should the enemy presi Its attack home. 

Following out this ld«a, the «lth and 
104ih, with Ko. 11 .Section Signalling 
Corpa, under Colonel Hall, will leave 
camp at Sidney at fl a.m. on Monday, 
and, as the defending Blue force, take 
up their first position somewhere to the 
HOiith of Sidney, as if they had marched 
out tH^ry from Yjctorls. Three hours 
later tBa'Atlacklli^l Red force, composed 
of the 73nd and 6th, under the command 
• of Colonel Leckje, will begin their arJ- 
vance on Victoria. 

When the opposing forces come Into 
contact, it Is supposed that rS» fted 
force, b^lng; numerically the strongest, 
'1(rtn''WilBil» to push the defensivr Blue 
force »*o1» t«^arda Victoria. Both 
forcM will bivouac on Monday nJght in 
the field under service conditions, which 
maana tiMf. Moh -will b« able to ta«rnuu 


the other right throufrh the night, and 
on Tuesday the Blue force will be rein- 
forced by two field guns manned by the 
5th Regiment and by the Cadet Corps, 
and a decisive action fought. 

The directing staff for tho manoeu- 
vres will be as follows; Director, Colonel 
A. Roy, M. V. O.; assistant director. 
Major R. Gardiner. G. S. O. ; orderly of- 
ficer. Lieutenant C. Tweedale, Corp.s of 
Guides. The umpires will be Major 
A. B. Carey, R. K., C. M.'; Major T. W.

Military Court 

BERLIN, Jvine 28. — A violent attack 
on the cruelties of the German rrillitary 
s.vstem of justice was n.ade today by 
.Socialist members of the Imperial Par- 
liament. It followed the announcement 
of some severe sentences pronounced by 
a court martial at ICrfurt when five Re- 
servists were condemned to five years' 
Imvirlsonment each for paittlclpatlng ' In 
a trifling dispute in a saloon. In the 
how a' couple of policemen were "Jjufl- 
tlod." The Socialists pointed oiit that 
on any other day of the year the of- 
fence of the men as private citizens 
would have been p-,inlshe<l by a light 
fine, but because the trouble occurrea 
on annual muster day, they were under 
martial law and had been treated In 
this severe manner.

OTTAWA, June It. — Lord Strathcona 
has given McOill University |100,00t) 
for the purchase of a site for a stu- 
dents' drill hall. It will be on Lame 
Crescent, adjoining the McOill (ym- 

Intentions are that the drill hall will 
b« erected next year in tlma for the 
students to use it. Tt will be used for 
the training of university students to 
form an offioars' tralnlnf corps, aa 
•zlata tn Oxford and Ccmbrlds*. 

rf.gard to ttu- purposes of the other 
leading appropriations made in this 
year's estimates for the constituency 
which I have the honor to represent; 
and speaking of that I would Just like 
to repeat what has no doubt been oft 
repeated, namely, that the Intereats of 
my constituency are very closely allied 
to the Interests of the capital city of 
Victoria. The dr.vdock, which is now 
being arranged, while tt is located with- 
in the political bounds of my constitu- 
ency, cannot fall to be of the very 
greatest effect .,upon tl)© upbuilding of 
Victoria, and In like manner, anything 
that tends to develop the capital city 
will have a powerful and agreeable re- 
flection In the Nanaimo riding. 

"But to be more particular in regard 
to the work of the session. It is in or- 
der to point out that the very import- 
ant question of wharf accominodatlon 
hap been well and generously atteride<l 
to, a number of a:pproprlations having 
been obtained for their construction 
Vhere necessary. Wharves are very es- 
sential things to a country that is de- 
veloping at the rate of this Western 
Province, and particularly in the sec- 
tions represented by the territory on 
Vt;ncouver Island. I have little doubt 
that further demands will be made in 
this regard at an early date, but I think 
there will be little diflflcuty In hav- 
ing.- appropriations made for them inas- 
much as the Government is now well 
aware of the amazing conditions of this 
Western country, with Its ' ambitions 
people, vast Immigration, and remark- 
able rate of development. 

Postal Improvements ' 

"The I'ostal Department had a num- 
ber of Important calls made upon Its 
attention, and I think It will be con- 
ceded that the authorities treated us 
very generously. Tt\c rural mail deliv- 
ery has been greatly extended,' and the 
Government has undertaken to establish 
telephonic ' communication wherever 
necessary. The Gulf Islands also came 
under notice, nnd I may say that the 
authorities are now contemplating a 
steamship connection with De*p Cove, 
now that the B. C. Electric line has 
been completed to that point. 

"At the harbor of Nnnnlmo, to gel a 
bit nearer home, extensive Improvements 
are imder contemplation by the Gov- 
ernment, Improvements which will bring 
the port more Into line with the leading 
points on the Coast. 

".Speaking of Nanaimo, I was very 
much disappointed to learn of thiv^ndus- 
trlal conditions prevailing thert'. How- 
ever, my views on this problem are 
\xell known, and In any case, in view of 
the forthcoming visit of the Hon. T. 
W. Crothers, Minister of I..abor, It Is 
not for me to Interfere and suggest 
remedies. 1 have been In constant con- 
sultation with the minister, who Is keen- 
ly hlive to the Irksomene^s of the sltua- 
atlon and Is very desirous of coming 
here to look after the varlou.« troubles 
and see If a permanent remedy cannot 
be effected. He will be on the Coast 
In till, near future, and I have his rvs- 
suranre that he will visit the affected 
district and see what can be done to 
alleviate tho situation, 

"Now I would like to say In con- 
clusion." said the member, "that all of 
the things that are now being pr6vlded 
for are due In a very large measure to 
the co-operative spirit of the members 
for the Province, and in saying that I 
Would like to lay particular emphasis 
upon the members for the city of Vic- 
trria and for Kootenay, with whom I 
have worked consistently and always on 
terms of the happiest amity." 

Mr. Shepherd was greatly pleased to 
hear of tho propossl to dornonstrafe In 
Victoria In connection with the visit 
of the battleship New Zealand, nnd 
slated that he would he pleased to co- 
operate in the movement as far as he 
possibly could. He was sure that the 
sentiment prompting Victorians in this 
matter would be felt by sll British Co- 
lumbians, regardless of their locstion.

Of course you love flowers, but perhaps 
.vou have not often thought of their re- 
fining and comforting Influence. You 
can give a rose to anyone. You could 
rot give every one a dollar. But any- 
one will take a rose and exchange with 
you a smile of good will. Smile."? of 
gdcd will are among the things that 
count also. . . 

Then there are the mountains With 
their Derennlal crowns .of snow. You 
have seen them rising ahove the clouds, 
have watched them catch the rose-tints 
of dawn and the fading glories of day. 
They are eloquent of promise, of com- 
fort, of a peace that passeth understand- 
ing — are these snow-capped summits at, 
which we all gaze on Summer even- 

Then there are the llttlo children. 
Tliese are Victoria's greatest asset. Au'l 
what a lot of them there are, and how 
Uvely they are! Said a visitor oncc 
when he was looking at a bevy of little 
folk, "Of course they are delightful, 
but just thlrtk what a place this is for 
children to grow up in." And then ho 
went on to talk about the days that 
are never too warm and the nights that 
are alwayS cool, and the sea beaches, 
and the brooni on Beacon Hill, and th* 
perks. "These are the things," he said, 
"that make your children beautiful." 
Perhaps he Is right; and we know you 
iviii ^ay with us: , Thank God for the 
beautiful children and the things that 
make them beautiful. 


The Summer tlil.s year up-to-date has 
lipcn nothinpr much to boast of, and if 
\\f ran Itelleve meteorological experts 
the la yet to come. An unusual 
planetary event will culminate a llttl» 
before midnight on July 3. This Is the 
combination of the new moon in con- 
junction with the ma.\imum declination 
. r the moon north of the equator. While 
this event .g;^ happening the earth will 
be undergoing an abnormal strain. It 
is gaid that earthquakes n.ay be ex- 
pected, accompanied possibly l>y abnor- 
mal meteorological conditions within 
iwenty-four hours of the midnight that 
ftulls between July 3 and 4. One weatlier 
prediction says that the furious storms 
that will ensue will last ten days, that 
is, from the time just before they strike 
the Pacific Coast until they reach tho 
\Vesterr. shores of Kurbpe, after passing 
<iver the North American Continent. 
Karthquakes, tornadoes, h-urricanes, elec- 
tric storms and other extreme weather 
»>venl.«! are among the terrestlal dlsturb- 
4.iii;fS predicted, and, It Is said that 
human lives, livestock, water craft and 
-..i.iier property will be destroyed in thf 
great disturbance. 

It will be Interesting to watch how far 
these predictions will be verifled. for the 
present week may prove an object les- 
son In the advance.^ being made in the 
study of meteorological conditions. We 
think It has been fully established that 
there Is an undoubted relation between 
earthquakes and the agp of the moon. 
The strain on this mundane sphere of 
ours increases when the moon Is In her 
perigee— that ts the part of her orbit 
nearest the earth — and diminlshea when 
she Is In her apogee — that Is the part 
farthest away from us. But even if this 
knowiedfe is certain there are many of 
the moon's eccentricities still unex- 
plained. For imtance she has several 
hundred periodic terms, for all of which 
thare' Is certainly no satisfactory solu- 
tion. The problem of the action of the 
planeta on the moon Is without a doubt 
the most dlfflcuU and Intricate oX 
celts ttal meettanica. 



A very vigorous dlscuaelon Is going 
on In the United atates as to the pro- 
[jrlety of permitting a Judge, before 
whom a contempt of court may Ivave 
been actually or conutrui'lively commit- 
ted, to decide 'if there has been a con- 
tempt In point of fact, and to impose tlio 
punishment if he decides In the affirm- 
ative. It is admitted on all sides that, 
In the case of an actual contempt com- 
mitted in open court, the presiding 
Judge must have the right to decide and 
Impdiae the punishment. If he liad not, 
the orderly conduct of courts might 
easily become Impossible. But what the 
argument turns on Is the case of a con- 
structive contempt, as, for example, the 
wrongful publication in a newspaper of 
matters reflecting upon a court or a 
judge thereof. It Is claimed that In 
such a case It Is contrary to every 
principle of Justice that, the accuser 
ahould be Judge, Jury and executioner. 
There appears to bA'VMV reason 


the Fifth who have already won thair 
laurels as the premier artillery regiment 
of thu Dominion. "We hope that they 
win long retain this distinction and 
that thu pride of the citizens In their 
performances will he evidenced by a 
disposition on the part of employers to 
allow members of the regiment in their 
employ full opportunities for drill and 
as much time as possible to attend to 
their other military duties.

In respect to contempts of this class, 
tfiere is really no justification for them, 
and the person actually responsible for 
them might very properly come under 
the- displeasure of the court, for to com- 
ment in the press upon a pending case 
is exceedingly unfair, and Is calculated 
to prevenj: the proper administration of 
justice; As to crltlelsm of the con-

It should be a matter of great local 
satisfaction that year by year the Fifth 
Regiment, C. G. A., shows such notablp 
Improvement. Its appearancp and work 
on the guns were subjects of higli en- 
conlums from General Sir Ian Hamilton 
during his Inspection last week. It wUl 
be remembered, too, that thp regiment 
marched into can.p this year practically 
at full strength, tlie recruiting campaign 
just prior to the Summer period of 
training having been In every way auc- 
cp^sful. In some of Its performances, 
Mppciflcally the practice with the quick 
flrers. th" Fifth Ileglment compare.s 
more than favorably with any militia 
regiment in Britain. This Is very hlgli 
praise, but It Is substsntlated by an 
officer of the Imperial Service who was 
present during the gun nrlng earried out 
on Friday. Commenting on the per- 
formance, he said: 

"It is perhaps not exactly rlpht for 
me to criticize, but 1 do not hejiltat<» 
to say that the work of the men on the 
quick flrers was simply astonishing. The 
smartness of the men of Number One 
Company was a revelation, and I must 
say that what was still m<*re striking 
to me was the fine discipline displayed. 
I have seen many mtlltia regiments 
carry out similar practice In the Old 
Country, but have never seen any to 
compare with the local regiment so fir 
as discipline is concerned." 

A tribute of thif character should 
prove highly encovraglng to the men ot

The" South China Morning Post and 
the principal Russian newspaper pub- 
lished in Vladivostok are both of the 
opinion that a very serious condition of 
things is arising between China and 
Russia In respect to the territorial 
designs of the latter, and we find The 
China Press saying; 

The whole of Manchurle. Is now 
swarming with agitators who endeavor 
to arouse anti-Russian feeling among 
the masses of the people. The Chinese 
merchants, as might have been cxjieoted. 
are all united' In different political so- 
cieties, whose principal aim is to col- 
lect funds to support the patriotic move- 
ment, and to float milUury loans. Re- 
cently, at their expense, they ■'.eclded to 
supply all the local mllltlft during war 
time and to conduct the boycotting 
inovcment. The provincial councils are 
also continually clamoring for war and 
are sending petition after petition to 
the Peking Government advocating the 
.settlement of the Mongolian qupstlon by 
the sword, and demanding the Immediate 
declaration of war against Russia, 
rntll now only the bulk of tho pea."<antry

agitation among the masses also.

there is only too much ground for be-

The New York Evening Post attrib- 
utes the su.'ces.'s of Amprlran.n In games 
and athletics to what It describes as 
"this commen<lable national talent for 
seeing red on the play field." It believes 
that between 'two well matched op- 
ponents victory will go to the one with 
a capacity for something like "religious 
fr^^nay," and tnls it' believes Is the gift 
of the American nation's above all other. 
The Evftnlng post, I* right. Tt has un- 
witfing.y, perhaps, described the' essen- 
tial difference that exists In sportsman- 
ship between British and American corrt- 
munltles. In Kngland, for instance, the 
suffragettes have the gift of "seeing; 
red," and that is the reason they are 
unscrupulous In their methods. Athletes 
in British comm'unlties do not possess 
the faculty of develofitng a religious

The Toronto Evening Telegram prints 
an Illustration of the steamer Ford-

and which Is described as the first 
steamer to. use oil for fuel in Canada. 
This is an exhibition of oblvlon as to 
the carrying trade of the Pacific Coast, 
which is reminiscent of an era that 
wo "thought had long ago passed. For 
the benefit of our contemporary we 
would point out that vessels plying 
these waters have been using fuel oil 
for a number of years past.

The ideal plan is that suggested some 
time ago In The Colonist, namely, the 
construction of trestles across the 
ravines, eo that cars going In opposite 
directions could keep clear of each other. 
We realize that this would take some 
time and cost a considerable sum of 
money. It will have to be done, we 
think. Meanwhile we advance a sug- 
gestion that has been made to us. 
namely, that posts, painted white, with 
stout plaJiks to form a bulkhead, might 
be put in position at a small, cost, ant' 
would suffice until the larger and bet- 
ter plan can be put Into effect. 

Rudyard Kipling has relapsed into 
poetry. . He has been Inspired to do so 
by the visit of the French ' President 
to England. This Is how he began and 
he kept It up for sixty -one line.s:

things say there never was such a June 
crop of pretty brides and more or InsM 
noble bridegrooms. The explanation of 
this Interesting state of thlng?( has not 
yet been ascertained witli certainty. 
That the plight lull In business has en- 
abled young men's fatlcy to "lightly 
turn to thoughts of love" Is generally 
repudiated by the parties mi>stly inter- 
ested. It has been suggested that so 
many young fellows have seen cosy 
homes being built for other people, that 
they have become desirous of having 
one of their own. No one youth a/lmlts 
this, to be true in his case, but many 
of them concede It may be true In that 
of others. Posslby t^e absence of sun-

After the conclusion of Mr. H. A. 
Maclean's addrees for the defendant 
and Mr. Frank Hlggln*' aummlns up 
for the plaintiff, .Tudge bampman yes- 
terday morning found that Mr. D. E. 
Camphoil is not responsible to tho sub- 
contractors for moneys owing them for 
work done on the new Campbell Block, 
corner of Fort and Douglas Streets. 

The case undw trial, namely, Dickey 
vs. Westholnse Lumber Company, was a 
test, there being a number of other 
aub-contractors who aUage substantial 
cliiims against the block. Although the 
Judge expressed the opln.ion that the 
"Westholme Lumber Company was liable, 
it was not asked that judcment be en- 
tered against them. For this reason, 
that phase of the matter was left un- 
decided. That an ippeal will te en-

fjl^Btholrrie Lumber Company, and 
«l|;ned "agts.," and the eonversaOo 
•jfrhlch plaintiff swore to having h«i 
with Mr. Campbell and his" architects 
as to payment*,' were pointed to as con- 
clusive testimony that U was under- 
stood that the concern doing: the work 
wa.s merely acting as the owner's 
aBPni. To strenRthen his position, he 
cited judgment In the case of Saj'ward 
vs. Dunsmulr. followinR the ojd t)rlard 
Hotel fire. This, he arKuedr-" was a 
parallel case, and the owner, as a re- 
sult of "hwt^ objecting when tho ex- 
penditure overshot the estimate, was 
held responsible. 

Replying. Mr. Maclean declared that 
his learned friend had not been happy 
In Ills selection of authorities, holding 
that the ca."»es rjunted hy him were not 
of a similar chaVacter. They were" In- 
stances In which the builders were dis- 
tinctly aprents of the owner. In the 
case l,n point this was not the situation. 
The tVestholme I-,umber Company had 
entered into a contract"to construct the 
block for a specified sum, $106,000. 
which Mr. CainTibell had paid, and not 
a cent more. He affirmed that the con- 
tractors were the Interested parties 
and alone wefre liable. 

In glvlnsr judKment, the court took 
up the legal, point raised by Mr.. Mac- 
lean, observing that iu the Plckey case. 
In hifi opinion, tlfe notice given by tho 
lien-holders could not-^b»- made to hold 
as to any sum greater than ?10.20. 
With reference to the claim set up that 
Mr. Campbell was liable for accounts 
owing sub-contractors,. Judge Lampman 
declared that, on the evidence of Messrs. 
Dickey and Colbert, he could not. and 
would Aot, believe that the owner had 
agreed to pay their accounts. Beijldcs. 
there was th% defendant's denial. In 
coming forward and endeavoring to 
saddle other parties with their liabili- 
ties, the evidence of those so seeklmj 
must be clear and emphatic. That wa-s 
not the case here. Speaking of the 
contract, by the terms of which Mr. 
Campbell agreed to be respon.sible for 
the bills, Judge Lampman was of the 
opinion that he could not be .so held for 
more than J106,000, for which amount 
the contractors agreed to put up the 

The distinction between this case and 
that cited by plaintiffs counsel was 
very clear. That the Westholme Lum- 
brr Company had been held out as 
"agents" to Mr. Campbell's knowledge 
had not been establish-'. Some of the 
requlnltlons. It was true, were signed 
with tht abbreviation "agts." but this 
did not bind the defendant, as he had 
no notice of It. An effort was made to 
fasten liability on Mr. Campbell be- 
cause of the way In which .«!ome of the 
cerliflcates were paid. His ohse|».'n- 
tions as to the requisitions applied to 

It was clear from the Westh<ilme 
.^Lumber Company's dealing throughout 
that they considered themselves con- 
tractors. As against Mr. Campbell, the 
case would have to be dlsmls.spri. al- 
though. Judge Lampman ^decliu-ed. If 
the plaintiffs asked for \f. they were 
entitled to Judgment against the West- 
holme Lumber Company..

From an experience in one of the best 
r.hildrens lihraries op the continent, 
Miss Stewart has learned, that by the 
time young people who have been 
trained In the juvenile depsrlment are 
old enough to take their place among 
the grown ups. their taste for goo<l Mt- 
eratur'e has been formed and they know 
how to sebct the best. 

One of the chief aims of the librarians 
1^ to co-operate with the p>ibllc sctiools 
and to help the teachers. For this pur- 
pose, supplementary readers and books 
oV reference are at the dlsposial of both 
PVPUs and teachrrs In the juvenUe de- 
partment. Mothers and primary teach- 
er., are very cordially invited to bring 
mtle one* into the room, to show them 
pictures or tell them storU*. so long

This appointment la doiibtless a step 
In this direction. Dr. MacMurchy h- 
also an authority on the care of in- 
fants, and. If she undertakes the super- 
vision of or'phanages^nd Infant homes, 
shr will sec that tli'e children are prop- 
erly fed and attended. ' Dr. MacMurchy 
Is the nr.-.t woman lu Canada to receive 
such an appointment, and the honor Is 
well deserved. It Is' to be hoped that 
she will be spared to work for the 
s,ifety and happiness of the poor beings 
whose sad plight has aroused her syni-, 
pathy, and that her labors in the cause 
of the babies will result In the reduc- 
tion of tlie high ratr^ of Infant mortal- 
ity which Is a reproach to the cttles of 
Kestern Canada. 

The following sketch of the career of 
Dr. Helen MacMurchy Is taken from the 
Toronto Globe: 

She Is a daughter of the late 
Archibald MacMurchy, I^UD., l>r. Mac- 
Murchy herself holds many high 
academic honors. She i.s a Ki-aduate of 
the University, of Toronto, and M. B. 
of the Medical .Collego for 1900, anfV 
an M. n. for 1901. For some years be- 
fore taking her medh al degrees she was 
a teacher in a Toronto Golleglato In- 
stitute (near Jarvia Street), of which 
hei father was rector. Subsenuently 
she studied in the Johns Hopkins Medi- 
cal School. Baltimore, and the Women's 
Medical College at Philadelphia, and nt 
the end of 1901 became resldrnt medical 
assistant at Toronto General Ho.spltal 
During the intervening years until the 
present she ha.s carried on a general 
practice, and has lectured as "well on 
anatomy, physiology and kindred sub- 
jects at the Toronto Conservatory School 
of Expression, Havergiil College, St. 
Margaret's ^'niiene and Hranksome Hall 
m this ctt% III 1906 she prepared a 
census of the fteble-mlnded In Ontario, elected prewldent of the .M'omens 
University Club In 190B, and vice-pres- 
ident of the Charities and Correction 
Association in 1908. A delegate- to th.' 
British Medical Association Congress In 
1909, Dr. MacMurchy was appointed by 
the Provincial Government to ...represrht 
Ontario at the first InternaUonal Con- 
ference on Infant Mortality at Balti- 
more the following year. .She is a fre- 
quent contributor to Canadian, American 
and British m^diral Journnls. Her re- 
port on Infant morfli'lltv In 1911 whs 
highly eulogized in Great Britain. In 
IPll Dr. MacMurchy was appointed 
medical Inspector of girls In Toronto 
publle schools, but resigned the follow ■ 
Ing year after a heated controversy 
'arising out of her condemnation of th.-

Joe Bayley Boxes in Vancouver 
Tuesday, in Port Angeles 
Friday and Again in Vancou-, 
ver Late in Month. 

On Tuesday, Dominion Day, the Cana- 
dian llghtwelKlit champion, Joe Bayley, 
will entei- upon tlio busiest period of his 
career. He has threa engagrementa on 
hlR hands In the one month, and not 
one of them can be called an easy thing 
for him. 

The last of the three men he will 
meet, Freddie Welsh, lightweight cham- 
pion of Britain, Is, of course, th^ hard- 
est nut to crack, and Bayley will be de- 
cidedly fortunate if he wins. In the 
other two the odd.s will favor the local 
boy. for his reputation Is greater, and 
his record far more pretentious than 
that of either of his opponents, 
"Frenchle" Valse and Clarence Rothus. 
But. looking at the matter in an un- 
biassed light. It seema quite possible 
that either of the«e two may spring a 
surprise. Both are known to be clever, 
and have proved their worth In many a 
hard, short-distance mill. Valse held 
Bayley to an even break In a four- 
round bout recently, and basing their 
opinion of hia chances, on the showing 
jaie th^n, and the easy manner Itt . 
which he has )ii9Si^^-0 -:t^^.:^9^: ' 
the NorthlWst' ■WM..^..,.™,. 
stringing? with the'Tl^fe'hftftCw *' 
They believe that in him they have a 
coming chaniplon, and will be sadly dis- 
appointed if he does not overcome the 
Canadian title holder. Rothus is the 
least known of the three. His claim to 
consideration rests on the fact tliat as 
an amateur he has displayed cleverness 
and speed that has aroused the fistic 
fans along the coast to a furore of ad- 
miration. He is a slim, cleanly-built 
young fellow, a typical athlete, and his 
bout with the more rufrged Baylef\- 
should be i\a pretty an affair as has 
been seen in the Northwest In years. 

Bayley will meet Vaise at the Brig- 
house .A.rena. Vancouver, on Tuesday, 
Che bout starting at 1 o'clock. Will 
Oarnley and Ernie Barrleau will pro- 
vide a five-round preliminary. Then 
Bayley will jump to Port Angeles to 
take on Rothus in another fifteen-round 
bout also starting at 1 o'clock. The pre- 
liminary will see "Cyclone" Scott and 
Bob Brackett in a six-round argument. 
The date of the champion's third match 
Is still unselected, but It will in all 
probability be on some day lata In the 

Freddie Welsh wrote from Edmonton 
the other day that he was ready to enter 
the ring with Bayley at 133 lbs., ring- 
side, winner to take 60 per cent and 
loser 40 per cent of the purse, and would 
bet $3,500 to $2,500 on his chances. This 
Bayley has accepted, according to a 
telephone message received by his man- 
•iger yesterday. 

It Is assured by the Intense interest 
shov.-n here in Bayley's activities that 
3 large number of local fans will be on 
hand to cheer their pride to victory on 
all three occasions. The fact that 
Tuesday is a holiday will give many an 
opportunity to get over to Vancouver, 
r.nd a special excursion w^lll be run to 
Fort .Angeles on the American holiday, 
the boat leavlnp here at 10 o'clock, and 
returning immediately on the conclusion 
of the bout. 

Time and again fans have complained 
that Bayley's advancemej^t has been 
hindered by lack of action, buLAcanning 
this programme for the month of July 
it Is difficult to see where they can find 
anything to cavil at.

Which lived up to the expectations of 
its owner by winning' the race for Class 
A boats at the Kiel Regitta, Kiel, Ger- 
many, on Friday. Emperor William was 
a competitor. He started on board his 
racing schooner Meteor In the open race 
for Class A boats. The other contest- 
ants were the former American schoon- 
er Westward, which was renamed the 
Hamburg II., after being bought by a 
syndicate of Hamburg yachtsmen; the 
new English schooner Margharlta, a 
ship of extreme de.ilgn by Chbrles E. 
Nicholson, and owned by Q. C. TVhlt- 


aiier, and the- Oermanla, 'owned by Dr. 
Krupp von Bohlenhalbach. 

The Margharita won; the Meteor 
was second and the Hamburg 11 third. 

The Margharita showed decided su- 
periority over the older yachts, win- 
ning without the assistance of her time 
allowance of 88 seconds. 

The Prince of Monaco was on board 
ttie Meteor a.'s the guest of the Em- 

The Margharita was built to replace 
the W'aterwltch, from which the owner 
suffered greftt disappointment. The 
Witch was built to defeat Westward 

j fnow Hamburg II.), but before they 
I nad met the latter was back in .Vmerlca, 
! and It was only by the way in which 
the Amdrlcan treated German competi- 
tors that afterwards beat Waicrwltch 
casllj' that the wonderful sailing quali- 
ties of Westward became known. Al- 
i though no direct trial had been made. 
I the indirect evidence wa« so complete 
that Mr. Whltaker decided to discard 
' his big boat and build the schooner that 
has now ful.illed its purpose. This is 
I one of the very few evidences that lu«

Vancouver Amateur Lacrosse

Around Victoria Team — 

■ Sam Lorime- in Uniform, 

VAXCX>UVEK. June 28— Scoring their 
foufFh straight victory and outclassling 
their opponents at every stage of the 
contest, the champion V. A. C. lacrosse 
team today defeated the Victoria team 
by a acorei^t 18 goale to 2 at Athletic 
Park 'before a big crowd. This defeat 
eliminates Victoria as a contender for 
the Mann Cup tills season. 

At no stage of the game did the Cap- 
itals have a chance to win, and after 
the first quarter, when the cupholders 
started piling up goal?, it ceased to be 
an even contest. The" champions jnade 
a runaway of it. although they failed 
to ."ihow anything like their true form. 
The passing of the home was erratic 
at times, hut the players gave a great 
exhibition of their scoring ability. 
Crooknl) and Davis d/d the m«8t ef act- 
ive work on the hofn%, and th^y gave 
the Victoria defence a good afternoona 
work. The defence of the champions 
played a steady game and the rlaitors 
were unable to make much headway. 
They got both of their goals from quite 
a distance out. On the whole It was a 
disappointing match. Victoria's Inabil- 
ity t» give the champions anything ap- 
proaching an even argurhent being re- 
iponslble for the exhibition served up. 
Victoria came over minus a cotjple of 
he regulars, and Johnson's absence 
rom the goal made a big difference, 
ut It is doubtful If the Islanders are

Although there was a lot of useless

■U'ith a view to promoting an Interest 
In sport in Germany, and especially to 
enotiuragtng all round efflclenoy. the Im- 
perial Committee for the Olympic 
fJamas has worked o\it a scheme of 
tests, and of reward in the shape of 
bTonae, silver, an/1 gold medalii for those 
who con perform a not very severe test 
In each of Ave groups of athletic sports 
and games. 

The first group consists of swimming 
and gymnastics, the second of high 
jump and broad Jump, the third of run- 
ning 100 yards or a quarter of a mile 
or a mile, the fourth of fencing, dlscus- 
tlirowlng, rowing, lawn tennis, wrest- 
ling, hockey and golf, and the fifth 
group inclu •?« long-distance running, 
swimming, skating, skiing and cycling. 

The Idea is that moderate efficiency In 
five of these things shall be rewarded 
by a. bronze medal. A silver medal will 
be given If tha performances are re- 
peated In each of four years, and a gold 
medal If the performances are repeated 
in each of eight years. A competitor of

Haw Type of Maoblse Introduced Here 

Oontains Many Advantages Over 

Ordinary Type 

LONDON", .lunc 28. — Although the 
actual preparations for the Sixth Olym- 
piad, which will be held In Berlin in 
1916, are as yet in a very early staRC. 
the scheme of orRanizatlon is rapidly 
takinK shape. Th» central authority, 
f'-onn which evorythlnii; proceeds, is the 
Imperial Committee for Olympic Games. 
It la practically a Government Depart- 
ment, or at least an officially recognized 
corporation, to which the Imperial CJov- 
ernment has delegated the whole work 
of preparation. 

The elaborate organization of athletics 
enables the authorities to levy funds 
easily, anjl In South Germapy at any 
rate the orgranizations for "liKht ath- 
letics" have raised the permanent poll 
tax on membership and are imposing 
r<'Sul*t'ons — such as that the clubs are 
n.jt to give prizes between now and 
Itiie, but are to buy plaques for which 
fhp> F>ay rather more than the real 
value, the difference going lo the funds 
for the Olympic Games. 

Tn Bavaria Prince Huprechl, like tlie 
Crown Prince In Prussia, is energeti- 
cally promoting sport, especially in the 
Btmy. The German Crown Prince Is the 
president of a apeclal committee which 
Is raising funds for the training of the 
best horses and riders for tbtT ridin? 
competitions. From 1914 onwards th« 
troops in all Oerman garrisons will be 
able to ride over obstacles of the type 
to be used at the Olympic copipctltlone. 
There will be a first selection of officers 
In the Winter of 19H, a further selec- 
tion In the following Autumn, and a 
final selection in« the Spring of 1916. 
Tha officers ttnally selected will then 
be stationed at Hanover, and practice 
thero until t»v© Olympic Oamea taka

Undoubtedly one of the greatest Im- 
provements in motor cars made since 
that very popular means of locomotion 
was evolved is embodied in the Carter- 
car, a new type of machine wltich ia 
having a wide sale wherever marketed. 
The Cartercar Company has opened a 
branch In Victoria, its IcJtai agents being 
Mitchell Brothers. o£ 723 View Street, 
and yesterday the possibilities of the 
car were demonstrated to an Interested of The Colonist staff. 

The novel feature of the Cartercar ia 
Its friction transmission, which di>e8 
away witli all gearing. That .-iystem 
may have been tried before, but It is 
certain that it has never been brought 
to such a perfection of efUclency as It 
has In the Cartercar. Simple as It may 
seem -in writing, the new method of 
transmission lifts the Cartercar out of 
the common ruck and places It on a 
plane heretofore unreached in the de- 
velopment of the motor car. This Is a 
big statement to make, but the feat Is 
not at all impossible in those days of 
mushroom-like growth in all klndf ol 
meclxanical devices.- At any rate, one 
trlAl was sufUclen't to convince the 
writer of the tremendous advantages In 
the Cartercar over the ordinary make. 
The Cartercar has any amaunt of 
speeds, there being a steady graduation 
from low to high. Instead of two or 
three Jutnps, as is usual. It can b« 
started out on the high Just as well as 
the low, and can be changed from for- 
ward to reverse without a stop and 
with Just otv- move of the lover. It 
has been stopped dead and reversed 
when going at ,1 speed as great as forty 
miles an hour. The smooth action of 
the car makes it possible for it to be 
sent forward and backward with be- 
wildering suddenness without Jarring 
Its occupant. In fact, when the car Is 
being put through a test of this sort 
the occupant might easily Imagine him- 
self in a rocKing chair, so uninterrupted 
and equable is the movement. The ad- 
vantages in a machine possible of being 
manoeuvred so easily would ba very ma- 
terial on a crowded thoroughfara 

That thaae advanta«aa ara ^ot galnad 
at an expansa m soma othar raspaot la

machinery for the life of the ear-r-«nd

ence Brown and Dr, Gerald 
Nunn Solemnized at Christ

One of the prettiest weddings of the 
season was solemnized yesterday after-

water, led to the altar Kdilh Vlorenoe,

Brown, of Blrchwood, Cralsflower Koad. 
The ceremony, which was performed by 
Vf ry Rev. the Dean of Columbia, as- 
sisted by Rev. \V. H. Dawe, was wit- 
nesaed by a large number of friends 
of the happy pair, and the smart unl- 
forms of the bridegroom and naval offi- 
cers In attendance lent an addlilonal 
pleture.sque touch. 

The 'jaihedral had been beautifully 
rtetorated by the friends of the bride, 
the chancel being banked with margiier- 
[i''-fi, while white flowers were also ar- 
ranged on the altar. The bridal party 
passed up Uie aisle to the strains of 
•The Yolce That Breathed O'er Eden." 
The bride looked lovely in an ex- 
tremely pretty and ofi'ectlve gown of 
white duchess satin, beautifully draped, 
with chiffon yoke and corsage of pearl 
and .silver embroidery, the short sleeves 
finished off with chiffon ruffles, while 
(he dress was caught at the knees with 
riearls. The gown was completed with 
a short flsh-tal! train, •while depending 
from the shouldera was a beautiful 
court train of white satin lined with 
shirred chiffon and exquisitely worked 
with lovers' knots In silk and silver 
and pearl rosebud.s, finished off with a 
tiny wreath of orange blossom. The 
train was caught on the .shoulders with 
loops of pearls, shaped into a V point 
at the waist line, from where it hung 
sheer away to the ground. With this 
she wore a veil of embroidered tulle 
and orange blossom!", and carried a 
liouquet of white roses and sweet peas. 
• Her bridf.imalds were Miss Madge 
Wolfenden And Mlsn Mary Boggs, who 
wore charming gowns of shell pink 
satin, with short lace bolero.^, and pic- 
ture hats of pink tulle. Their bouquets 
were of pink roses and sweet peas. The 
Misses Beatrice and Winifred Wolfen- 
den, nieces of the bride, who acted as 
flower girls, looked very pretty In pale 
blue satin Kate Greenaway dresses, 
with mob caps to matcli, and carried 
bouquets of pale pink sweet peas. Mas- 
ter Richard Wolfenden, tlie bride's 
nephew, who acted as page, wore a 
white duck sailor suit. Lieutenant

man, and the ushers were l-le\itennnt

tenant Montague, Lieutenant Chalmers 
and Assistant l^'aymastor Mllman. 

During the ceremony, "O Perfect 
Love" was sung, anu while the register 
was being slgne.'!, Mrs. HInton sang "O 
Knir. O Sw(*ef, O Holy." with heautlfiU 
effect. The happy pair left the cathe- 
dral hen*atii «n arch of drawn sworda 
to the ringing strains of Mendelssohn's 
"Wedding March." 

Outside. B» they stepped Into their 
limousine, the men of the Shearwater 
gav« them three hearty cheers and a 
(lgr«r. The reception was held in the 
beautiful gardens of Blrchwood, where

of the report will y»ve those members 
of the board w.ho differ with the fi- 
nance committee in its .suggested policy 
opportunity to criticize the method,s 
followed since the beginning of the 
year by the committee. 

The committee's report deprecated the 
stjggested termination of the engage- 
ment of thG -city's fiscal agents, the 
Dominion Securities Company; advocat- 
ed the sale of all debentures now in 
the company's hands, together with 
such local improvement Issues as" may 
become available, and urged that ar- 
rangements be made through the fis- 
cal agents for temporary financing by 
the renewal of «uch treasury bills as 
fall due on October 2 next, carrying 
forward I-n this manner an Indebtedness 
Wf approxiimately .?1.SOO,000, and ar- 
ranging for a further Issiie of treasury 
ibllls, when possible, so as to enable 
certain works .of local Improvement to 
be completed and assessments made for 
the following purposes and amounts: 
.J[and appropriations, $.300,000; new 
work, $350,000; paving contracts, 1350,- 
000; a total of $1,000,000. The com- 
mittee also suggested that the amount 
to .be raised In this way for new work 
should be applied only to such works 
as have been commenced "primarily, 
Gorge Road, Douglas Street, Fort Street 
from Cook Street to School Street, and 
that no new works of local Ihiproven- 
ment be 'undertaken or commence<l a I 

Involved In the discussion Is the 
question of what .shall he done rela- 
tive to the request of the Canadian 
Mineral Rubber Company that thn 
city should cancel the contract,? which 
have been let to the company except 
In cases where the cortipany have start- 
ed work, as on the g^Orge Road and 
Douglas Street. The cortvpany suggested 
that the city might purchase the ma- 
terial which has been placed on some 
of the streets It was Intended should 
be proceeded with, and let the Work 
over again by calling for new tenders. 
Final consideration of th* tax by-law 
fixing the rate of taxation to be levied 
on land valuer will be had. The rate, 
as decided at the • last meeting of the 
Council, was tVerty mlllf groas, or sev-

intersection with Quadra Street on 
Friday at 7:30 o'clock, Guy Ferrebee, 
aged sixteen years, was run down by 
a motor car driven toy Mr. C. F. Daw- 
son, Mount Tolmie. The lad apparently 
did not .see the motor approaching. He 
was Ihrown to the pavement b.v the 
force of the collision and badly bruised, 
but examination •"made by Dr. Holmes 
at the lad's home, 272S Graham Street, 
showed that no bones were broken. 
The bicycle was badly damaged.

vanced a step further by the lasue of an 
e.xtraordinary Presidential mandate, 
^M rded precisely like an Imperial Edict, 
i-ays the Pekin correspondent of The 
London Telegraph. The President, after 
reviewing exhaustively the actions of 
Ll-Lieh-Chun, Tutah of Klangal, and 
particularly the disposition of his pro- 
virclal troops, summarily orders him to 
vacate hlsi and come to Peklu to 
receive another appointment. 

Another mandate orrter.s General Ll- 
VUan-Hung. in addition to li.s present 
post, to become Acting Tutuh of 

This brings matt^r«-i between Peklii 
and the Southern projlnces to a head 
and must lead to dramatic results It 
is necessary to note that no authority 
ta^vested Jn the Provisional President by 
the Provisional Constitution to interfere 
with high provincial appointments. Halt| | 4 ^^

position of the Itlangsi Tutuh, who, 
botng a singularly ro.«"oUite mt)n, began 
the struggle which has been top greatly 
accentuated since the assassination of 
Sung*Chlao-Jen, and the illegal signa- 
ture of the quintuple loan. 

The enveloping movement of Northern 
troops, acting from the Hupeh province, 
consisting of the whole of the Sixth 
Division and portions of the Second. 
ifFourth, and Twentieth Divisions, alto- 
gether 30,000 men, is wholly directed 
against the Kiangsi-Tutuh. More troops, 
namely, the Third Division and a portion 
of the Twenty-eighth Mukden Division, 
are under orders to reinforce the move- 
ment. Much ammunition, as is dally 
reported by the metropolitan press, is 
being transported. 

The continual contempt that Is dis- 
played for Parliament is an evil augury 
for the future, while the massing of 
Northern troops in Central China when 
well-ermed Mongol bands, unchecked, 
are raiding the country far and wide 
just beyond the Great Wall, is a fur- 
ther interesting commentary on the 
whole policy of the present regime.

was partly loaded at the tlir.e, as she 
was bound from Hongkong to yokohami

this fact caused her to rest heavily when 
she encountered bedrock. The mishap 
occurred on June 4, arid after, the Can-

was found that eight plates had been 
severely dented, and that a certain 
amount of water had foiind Its way 
into the forward hold. It was decided 
to place temporarj' patches over the 
weakened parts of the hull, and the ves-

The largest steamship ever built In a 
Victoria shipyard, the Princess Macjuln- 
na, is now approaching comiiletion and 
will be ready to undergo her steam 
trial.s by the second week in July. For 
the first time' steam was raised in the 
vessel's boilers on Friday, and when a 
sufficient steam pressure was indicated 
the engines were turned over by the en- 
gineers and declared to be in satisfac- 
tory working order. 

The oil fuel used for raising the ne- 
cessary steam was transferreil from the 
G. T. P. steamer Prince Albert, several 
days before that vessel was haulfd out 
for repairs. The vessel's oil burners 
, were thoroughly tested and found to 
work satlsfactorliy. The engineers an- 
ticipate no trouble in making the Ma- 
tiulnna develop a speed of 14 knots. The 
finishing (ouches are now being carried 
out In the interior of the splendid craft, 
and what work remains to be dori' will 
be rushed In order that the new steam- 
ship may be piaced in commission at the 
eerllest possible moment. The probabili- 
ties are that the Princess Maaulnna will 
make her first trip to the West Coast of 
Vancouver island during the latter part 
of ;■ July.-- '':..;'/ - . ■■■"/,;.■

Sir. — The city is in various ways 
making ready for our much-talked-of . 
Carnival, which will soon be to hand. 
May I make a plea for those who may 
come from our Gulf islands, Seattle, 
Vancouver and other Coast cities in 
their own cruising launches and yachts? 
Where are they to be accommodated? 
The only suitable place is the James 
Bay water space, which is so centrally 
situated and already well provided with 
Landing steps, etc. "What I would suk- 
gest is that room he made for visiting 
boats by the orderly mooring of all 
boats coming into the harbor. We have 
some fourteen or sixteen boats of our 
own always at anchor in the bay, and. 
though passers-by may admire the pic- 
turesque disorder at present prevailing, 
still, boatmen find difficulty In getting 
room to anchor, or even to get into the 
landing steps at all. If the harbor 
master, marine agent or other authority 
would only get a few piles driven at a 
divergent angle northward and south- 
ward from landing steps, in pairs, I 
mean, and between those have some 
long logs to make a floating gangway, 
then seventy or eighty boats could eas- 
ily be ftocommodated by mooring their 
bows to the gangways, and at the same 
time leave the centre of the bay open 
for the ready and convenient approach 
to the landing steps for others. At 
present the comparatively few boats 
swing all ways, and block the way to 
the landing and use up all the room, to 
the detriment of new arrivals. I have 
frectuently found great difficulty in 
getting to anchor with our 42-foot 
cruis»>r, and, when settled, was not at 
all sure we would not need to get up 
in the middle of the night with some 
adjacent swinging round and foul- 
ing us. The whole arrangement, aji 
suggested, could be made at hut little 
expense, and would be most convenient 

to all.

Majestic Theatre — High quality of 
suspense characterizes the society 
drama "Red and White Roses" at the 
Majestic Monday and Tuesday. It ex- 
hlhlts the gradual evolution and revela- 
tion of dual person.ility in the leading 
character. "Red Rose" is an adventur- 
es-s, who l.s c-mplo.ved by a villainous 
politician to ontanglp a rival candMate 
In a scandal that shall cause the rival's 
wife, the "White Rose," to leave him 
on the verge of election. The adven- 
turess does her work for pay, and suc- 
ceeds BO Well that the vacillating hus- 
band of "White Rose" f,ills Into the net 
she spreads for him and loses the elec- 
tion. "Wanted, a Strong Hand," is a 
very pleasing comedy; "Laying Marine 
Cable" is an added attraction of an 
educational nature; "With Eyes of 
Pllnd." ft strong dramatic stcry "The 
IfousekeepMfr of Circle C." a comedy riot 
of mirth from beginning to end. 

"Ths Mikado" — There was another 
large attendance at the Victoria Thea- 
tre last night to witness ther produc- 
tion of "The Belle of New York" by 
the Pollards. "The Belle of New York" 
will be kop« on until next Wednesday, 
and on Tlnirsday Gilbert and Sullivan's 
tuneful comic opera, "The Mikado," will 
be the bill. The brilliancy of this 
ot)erft'e dialogue and the swing of Its 
music renders It a delight to the 
auditor. Who has not listened en- 
tranced to the rhythmic songs, "Tlt- 
Wlllow," "The Flowers That Bloom In 
the Spring," "Herc'a a Howdy-Oo" and 
"Three Little Maids From School"? True, 
it Is a satire on our friends the Japan-

The riot on the side had some relation

tried to 
back. Grlffltlia 
with his stick, in- 
should keep quiet. 
This was a reprehennsible action on 
Griffiths' part, no doubt, but Mc- 
Murphy's method of retaliation was out 
of all proportion to the provocation. He 
rose in his aeit, and. leaning over from 
behind, began to pummel the player 
about the head. Immediately, the spec- 
tators swarmed about the scene, the 
game slopped, and some of the playars 
came in to see what was going on 

There was quite a little melee in pro- 
gress before it was quite clear to any 
but the principals juat what had hap- 
pened. By dint of much .«hoving and 
threat.s the police managed to get the 
crowd back, the belligerents were separ- 
ated, and peace restored. Ions was rele- 
gated to the bench to finish out his 
time, and on its expiration he had no 
more than got back on the field before 
he and C. Spring had i' run-in and hit 
each other over the face with their 
sticks. They were banished for five 
minutes, meaning the remainder of the 


Vancouver improved 

While their team remained intact, the 
Vancouver twelve played better lacrosse 
than they ever have this season. Their 
passing was cleaner, and their worlt in 
every department more effective than 
has been the case In the past. After a 
rather loose start, which game the 
Salmonbellles the appearance of the 
^tronger side in the fit-st quarter, the 
challengers improved wonderfully, anc» 
wfre playing grand laCroase at the time 
of their disablement. Taking the game 
all the way through, tlie Royals per- 
haps showed greater speed in Roing in 
on goal with the ball, and covering up 
their own n«ts when danger threatened. 
Init in other respects the Vancouvers 
easily held their own. The checking was 
always very close, btit there was , no 
undue roughness outs'de of the trouble 
in the last session. 

Johneon WCade Oood 
The exhibition given l>y "Boss" .John- 
son in goal was quite sufficient to bear 
nut all predictions that he would make 
good. Johnson was one of the big fac- 
tors in the "come-back" of the Jones 
aggregation. He turned aside numerous 
wicked shots, and at all times carried 
himself with the same cool daring and 
keen judgment as lUs famous rival, 
"Sun" Clarke. 

The work of H. GIfford was one of 
the features of the gami«. C. 8prln(.' 
was also particularly effective, and W. 
Turnbull was another oulstandlngg rnan 
on the Weetmlnster team. Ions had 
Ler. TnrnbuH beaten to a standstill, snd 
"Sihby" Nichols played real, good 1»-

aame* K«re This Week 'With 


A wire from L. A. Wattelet, president 
of the Victoria Basehall Club, last night 
brought the information that Pitcher 
Smith rias been traded for Pitcher "Red" 
Toner, of Spokane Ton"r will be a big 
lielp to the local club, as he can work* 
two or three times a week. He has been< 
dissatisfied with the Spokane Indians 
and so has not beeti able to give them 
his best. The trade looks to be a good 
one, for Smith has not been going any 
too well of late. 

The Tacoma Tigers will be here for 
the first part of this week. They and 
the Bees play four gamee at the Royal 
Athletic Park, and then jump to Tacoma 
for the remainder of the aerlaa. The

nesday's game will start at 6:10. There

CALGAi; ;s.— The street; 

rcUway is i-iil. i.^ -c..; ;uiyinfe industry 
that Calgary owns. This Is denaoti- 
strated by the report of the system for 
the month of May, which has Just been 
is.sued, showing a net profit of close to 
1 10,000 for the period inqu«;stion. 

The Calgary municipal railway has 
made this showing In the face of the 
fact that the system is not run for pro- 
mts, but for the convenience and com- 
, fort of the people of the city. There 
are ten or twelve outlying Uhes Which 
In themselves do not really pay, but are 
maintained and operated pimply because 
they benefit a certain number of rate- 
payers who are just aS much entitled to 
car service as those who dwell in the 
more densely populated sections of the 
city. V ' "♦ 

The number of passengers carried by 
thtf system for the month totalled over 
a million and a half, which is not bad 
for a city of 75,000 inhabitants. The 
gross earnings for May amounted to 
JP.I 337, as against $48,467 for May of

Mr. K H. Beaney, of the Victoria office 
of the B.C. Mining Exchange, and well 
known In Victoria athletic circles, who 
is at present in England. Mr. Beaney's

their letters, are quite comfortable and

Knight Engine vs. Poppet Valve Engine 

Four years ago, before the Royal Automobile Club of Great Britain, a 38 h.p. 
Knight Engine of Daimler manufacture m ade a world's record for durability and 


That record stood unchallenged until May of this year, when, before a Committee of Judges of 
the Automobile Club of America, an acknowledged leader among manufacturers of Poppet Valve 
engines put up his best 38 h.p. six cylinder engine to beat or to equal the record held for four years by 
the Knight Engine. 

Xhe Judges' report on the two tests settles the question af all-round supremacy in automobile 


In a series of advertisements we sliall show how thoroug;hly the Knight eiigine's supremacy has been upheld, 
and prove that even four years ago it was superior to the Poppet Valve engine of 1913, in the following particu- 


1. Thai for the size of motor the Knight En- 
gine develops greater horse power than the 
Poppet Valve. 

2. That it generates its horse power with less 
consumption of gasoilne. 

3. That it requires less adjusting, and its con- 
dition after use is more perfect. 

4. That the test to which the Knight Motor 
was subjected was much more exacting than tha^ 
of the Poppet Valve. 

5. That where a Poppet Valve motor loses in 
power with use, the Knight Motor increases. 

We want every owner or prospective owner of an automobile to watch for and read these adver- 
^ tisements, because for four years we have made many claims for the Knight Engine. The comparative 
figures of the two tests will prove how fully our claims have been justfiied.

John L. Griffiths, United Statea Con- 
sul-General In London, describe* In 
glowing terms the conditions of trad« 
and commerce and general business In 
the United Kingdom for the year 1912, 
In a report Juit made to the Depart- 
ment of Comrnerct at Washington. His 
annual review of British trade, Includ- 
ing figures of export and import to and 
from the United States and Canada, 
shows that a season of unparallel^' 
prosperity has blessfid the British Isles 
and that unless all signs fail the manu- 
facturer, shipbuilder, exporter, and Im- 
porter will have several "fat" years be-' 
fore them. 

Shipbuilding Is pointed out as the 
greatest example ot Hrltish huprcmacv, 
and It is confldontb stated that the 
shipbuilders of the United Kingdom will 
sain more by the Increased traffic 
through^ the Panama Canal than any 
Iftttier aet'of men in the same business

^'T^p-IE coming of Summer i.s fraught with the keenest of anticipations. We are 

I looking forward to that trip to the seashore, lake, mountain or country and 

the amusements attendant upon the season. If we have red blood, the 

sports and pleasures of the vacation period such as tennis, golf, boating, fishing, 

etc.. appeal to us. 

But this season of outdoor enjoyment also brings with it added responsibilities, 
in the extra care which must be devoted to the. toilet. The hair in particular, needs 
much more attention than at any other time. The sebaceous glands throw off 
more waste material, and tkerr \>, ;•. consequent larger and more rapid accumulation 
of dandruff, which makes the frequent and intelligent use of Newbro's Hcrpicide 

Regular applications of this valuable scalp prophylactic keeps the head per- 
fectly clean and the hair and scalp healthy. Ilerpicide adds gloss and bcautv to the 
hair, and thus increases ones personal charm, and attraqtiveness. 

The cooling effect, the sensation of cleanliness and the exquisite odor all tend 
to make Newbro's Ilerpicide a delightful hot weather hair dressing. It 
stop'^ itching of Ihc scalp almost instantl)'.

Eiuplr* Trade 

"Evidence of a closer trade relation- 
ship." says Consul-General Griffiths, 
"that has been established between the 
United Kingdom and Its overseas pos- 
sessions Is seen In the fact that, while 
a few years ago those possessions took 
only 32 per cent of British exports, the 
percentage in 1912 rose to 36. 

Imports to the British Isles from 
Canada arc given as $130,813,966, as 
against $199,686,433 for 1911. and ex- 
ports to Canada are .shown as Increas- 
ing from $95,943,380 to $114,423,555. 

It Is estimated that fiO per cent of the 
motor cars sold In Great Britain were 
of British manufacture, 40 per cent 
were of continental make, and 10 per 
cent of American origin. 

Russia Is given as the' chief source 
of wood supply for the United Kingdom. 
A specific reference to Canada shows 
that »h8 Dominion Is fallfng behind. 

"In 1911, of the total imports of wood 
Into the United Kingdom, 47 per cent 
came from Russia, while In 1912 that 
empire furnished 51 per cent, which 
was 12 per cent above the average of 
the previous five years. The other 
coiintrles, with the exception of Can- 
ada, which showed a sliortage of soma 
30,000 standards ( a standard being 165 
cubic feet), supplied about the same 
quantity in 1912 as In the preceding year. 
The position of oak is given as one of 
unusual strength, and the ordinary sup- 
plies from Quebec were sold In the 
United Kingdom before arrival." 
Boom for Shipyards 

A dominant note In the report Is the 
description of the lnC"'Stry In British 
shipyards. Passing •omment la made 
m relation to the good year experl- 
encod in British shops and factories, but 
the shipbuilding Industry Is shown afe 
having gone through the year 1912 mak- 
ing an unprecedented mark. However, 
the Increased activity .was offset, saj-s 
the report, by higher costs In labor and 
materials, and the dividends paid nrc 
said to be smaller than the volume of 
b\islness would have .•su^^'gested. The re- 
port says that the United Kingdom bulU 
V373 ships In 1912. British poRsessions 
built 208, a total of 1.581, and all the 
rest bf the world buUt 2.049. The aver- 
age tonnage of British-bulIt ships In- 
creaspd from 2,250 tons In 1911 to 
2,676 In 1912. 

And that Is not all. Te report holds 
out a glowing prospect for British ship- 
yards, exactly in accordance with the 
wflrds of John Barrett, director of the 
Pan-American Union, who has said that 
Brlti.«th .olilpyfirds %<'ou!d gain an Im- 
pregnable ascendancy because of thp 
trade to be put through the Panama 

British electrical Imports and exports 
Increased In 1012. says the report. There 
Is a serlnn.s Indention In the United 
Kingdom. It Is reported, to apply elec- 
tricity to tlie propul.slon of ships, which, 
It is stated "will result In the putting 
to sea of two vessels, one of SOO-horse 
power being built In England, and one 
of 5.000-hr.rserpower, being built in 

Canadian Imports .of butter ahnwc:! n 
decrease from 61,936 hundr»d weight In

United States b\itter shipments suffer- 
ed also, falling from 23,052 hundred- 
weight in 1911 to 2.569 hundredweight 
In 1912. In fact the whole world seons 
to have gone down in butter shipments 
to the T'nlted Klndom. Canada leads In 
cheese shipments to Great Britain^ witli 
1.353,570 hundredweight, and no figures 
of comparison for 1911 are showr.

A View o! the Property

How man^ii^those who will read at 
least a part of this advertisement are alive 
to the fact that this is the most opportune 
time for the shrewd investment of funds? 

How many realize that it is in a "be- 
tween-seasons" such as this that the "big- 
men" who are successful look for and 
make their most profitable investments.^ 

It is possible, through the marketing of 
an exceptionally line subdivision of lots 
on Cadboro Bay at the present time, to 
secure a site in the heart of the best sec- 

tion of this much-admired and much- 
sought-after neighborhood, at a very 
reasonable price and on terms that are 
much less exacting than usual. 

Cadboro Bay is in the position now 
that Oak Bay occupied a short iime ago. 
Only a regular street car service is neces- 
sary to create a great movement in prop- 
erty in this section. Those who buy NOW 
will be the ones to profit a short time 
hence, when the new car line will be 
definitely announced, and we may say 
we expect this within a very few weeks. 


Ocean Vicw^^ 


This has been called "The Property Beautiful," and the name 
is not an exaggeration. Almost all Cadboro Bay property is beauti- 
ful, but because of its natural location, almost adjoining the famous 
"Uplands," and because of its exceptional character as a Summer 
Resort and pleasure ground, "Ocean View" is particularly charming. 
It contains a limited number of lots, which we are offering now at 
from $1,250 up, on terms of one-fifth cash and the balance semi-an- 
nually over a long period. "Ocean View" is only a few minutes' 
walk from "The Uplands" car line, which amply serves present 
needs. It is expected that a new car line passing the property will be 
operating within the next few months. * m 

Even the most casual .•survey of the market 
at {)resenl will point to the fact that a lot se- 
cured now in this property is the wisest invest- 
ment open to you. The prices, location and 
surrounding values considered, are low and the 
terms are especially good. 

Consider that only $250 makes a first pay- 
ment on a lot in "Ocean View." 

This property overlooks beautiful Cadhoro 
Bay, that famous view with the distant moun- 
tains in the background. 

Almost every lot contains healthy, well-se- 
lected fruit trees, a big asset in themselves. 

"Ocean View" is situated almost ' directl.^ 
opposite the new Cadboro Bay Hotel. This 
indicates the splendid centrality of its location, 
and it is practically only one block from the 

Adjoining the property, and open to all, is 
the famous sand beach of Cadboro Bay, prac- 
tically the only reatly desirable sand beach near 
•Victoria, where the gradual slope of the sand 
always ensures warm salt water for bathing, 
and also a magnificent stretch of shallow water 

for those who are unable to swim. 

Compare this property with the well-known 
"English Bay" in Vancouver, and you will find 
everything in favor of Cadboro Bay. The 
beach is better, the water warmer, and the 
Beauty of scenery and environment is far su- 
perior. Only a few short years ago, if one can 
Realize it, lots in English Bay could have been 
purchased at present pnces jjuoted in "Ocean 
View"; now they are worth almost as many 
THOUSANDS' as we are asking HUNDREDS 
in "Ocean View." We prophecy that in the 
near future Cadboro Bay will become the most 
popular sea bathing beach and plaesure resort 
in the West. 

We consider this property much below pres- 
ent market prices, and those who buy now will 
be making a very wise investment upon which 
they will in the immediate future be able to 
realize large profits. 

The property slopes in the right direction 

towards the water, in gentle undulations, and 
each lot has a beautiful view, and many of them 
have fine orchard trees in full bearing. 

Call and see us, when our automobiles will be at your service to view 

the property

"I came here on a Hyingr visit to In- 
.•ipect soldiery, and now I want to remain. 
ami stuily town planning and a number 
of other things which you Victorians ap- 
pear to liave a monopoly of." 

Such was the pretty bouquet presented 
tlie city yesterday by Col. the Hon. 5>am 
HuKhes. Mini.ster of MlUtia and Defence, 
prior to embarking for the mainland. 

"To .stifle my natural inclination." ho, 
proceeded, "in the slilTened collar of 
duty would not be so difficult for me, a 
man accu.ntomed to siich Imperative 
calls, but the General and his .staff 
think I am treating them badly by 
hurrj'ing away, when as a matter of fact, 
I am .-iuffering jui?t as mucli as they are. 

•What I think of Victoria is perhaps 
be^t described In the word.s of General 
.Sir Ian Hamilton, for- although he la a 
soldier, hardened by many caraiiaignR, he 
pre.«erveB a wonderful eye for the beau- 
tiful, and he Is greatly In love with your 
city. He has never been so far West 
before, and that is Ills one regret. That 
he will be here again ie certain, for he 
says that he never was so Impressed 
with a sense of the city beautiful. 

"Hovyiever, my business was with tne 
soldiery, and In that conection It l.'i 
easy for me to be complimentary, for 
th© simple reason that what I found 
far exceeded my expectations. Both at 
Victoria and .Sidney I Tvas greatly Im- 
pressed with the camps and with the 
type of men we found Intralnlng. 
Numbers may mean a lot, Tiut in this 
country It Is the type that counts, and 
I am glad to see that out here In the 
West we are getting the very toest t>'pe 
of men Into the service. 

"The Sidney camp was a revelation in 
many way.s. In cleanliness, particulary, 
and also In the trim and capable ap- 
pearance of the rank and file. What 
I found l.s best described by the word 
ramaraderle. In a military connection 
that word means a great desn. In the 
old days the lack of It had a groat 
deal to do with the ineffectiveness oC 
ttie training. We have now. I am 
happy to think, weeded out the mis- 
fits and the men v.'ho cannot or will 
not "onform, whose deviation is always 
demoralizing In efect upon even the 
best of the others, and we are bnlldlnK 
up a force upon 'moral fibre. It Ks tlie 
qualltive clement again.'il the quantlthe 
element, and already I realize with 
pleasure that the one we are fighlins; 
for 'Is the one that is winning out all 
along the line. 

"Of the 5th Regiment It Is impo.nsible 
to speak, save In the very hlghe."!! 
terms. Words cannot convey to the 
public how the 5th stands in tlie mili- 
tary annals of the country. Only their 
record ran do tlint. and It is up to i 
every thinking min in the city to have 
a thought to spare and attend t" the 

"And last, but not least, what a great 
mllltnry spirit you are developing in 
the West. Perhaps, It Is due to your 
location, to Ihrj proxirrlty of the ocean, 
and the thoughts of other lands that 
Inevitably are Inspired by It; but. In any 
case. It i.-* a great thing for the country. 
You have a new regiment, the 88th 
Fusiliers, In the making, and another, 
a Highland Regiment, just bursting for 
expression, so to speak. That Is a 
splendid condition of things, and I am 
pleased to think that It reflects the 
general tone of the people upon a 
question that is vital to the Interest of 
the. nation, both In the ind'vidual and 
the Imperial relation."

Closing Exercises at Various 
Public Schools on Friday — 
Lists of Prize and Honor 

On Friday mom Ins ■th« children of thti 
city schools were to b« met on every 
street dressed in their Sunday toeel. 
carrying flowers or little presents to 
their teaoh«re, and wearing happy faces, 
for were not all examinations over, and 
wa« not this th* bcKlnnlng of the holi- 

At 3 o'clock In the afternoon the same 
little fclks :ou1q be seen In their every- 
day clothes, In some cases the oldest 
they could find, trundling hoops, ekat- 
ing, playing baseball or crowding to the 
swings and elides In the parks. Holi- 
days had begun, and for some sixty 
days, they will be free to do what 
pleases them best without thinking of 
lessons or teachers. 

In many of the schools there were no 
public exercises, the principals reading 
the promotion lists to the children and 
dismissing them with good wishes, while 
the teachers said good-bye to those In 
each class who had been fiucceoaful in 
gaining promotion. 

This was the course taken In the 

Girls' Central, South Park, Kingston 

-*0treet, and some of the si3rtnUer-« 

At Korth Ward, however, Mr. J. J*i 
Campbell presided at an excellent en- 
tertainment, at which there was a large 
attendance of interested parents and 
friends. The Assembly Hall would not 
hold all this big school. The little ones, 
looking as pretty and bright aa only 
happy children can, took their places 
and rendered the following programme 
very nicely: 

Song — "O Canada." Junior."^ 

Recitation — "Good and Bad Children." 

Donald McLeod 

Duet ..Dorothy Fraser 

"Kolls of Honor." 

'. . ..Miss Anderson's Room 

Bong — "Hurrah." . .

Recitation — "A Boy's Opinion." .. .. 

George Coleman 

"Rolls of. Honor." '. 

..Miss Brown and Miss Orr 

Sword Dance .... .. Violet Hastings 

Fan Drill ..Miss Orr's Class 

Speeches . . 

"God Save the King." 

At the close Rev. Mr. Green said a 
few encouraging words, and the prin- 
cipal praised the children for their con- 
duct during the term, especially men- 
tioning the fact that no wilful damage 
had been done to the buildings or any 
of the school property. 

The little ones diKmlssed. the older 
children filled the hall and .sang with 
much expression and In excellent time 
and tune the .songs tliey had been 
taught for the competition. One of 
was the patriotic song composed by Mr. 
W. J. Dowler, whoi Was present, and 
looked hinch pleased at the rendering 

Miss Mnrton'.? Class gave a patriotic 
dialogue, in which the unity of Canada 
and the history of Its settlement by dif- 
ferent peoples was cleverly shown by 
children dressed in appropriate cos- 
tumes. A violin solo by Willie Dalgan 
would have done credit to a much older 
performer. Other children did their 
parts In a way that showed talent and 
careful training. 

Mr. .lay. Chairman of the 
School Board; Mr. E. B. Paul, City 
Superintendent; Mrs. Jenkins and Mr. 
Reginald Hayward, the latter the new- 
est member of the School Board, visited 
a number of the schools in the morn- 
ing. They arrived at Fernwood School 
at 10 o'clock, where they found a num- 
ber of parents of the pupils a.saemhled. 
and the children gave a programme of 
Bongs and recitations, showing the. re- 
sult of careful practice. The next stop 
was made at the George Jay School, 
where Mr. Jay distributed the rolls of 
honor, and also addressed the children, 
formally announcing the holidays, as he 
did at the Fernwood and Sir James 
Douglas schools. 

At the George Jay School Mrs. Jen- 
kins was presented with a lovely bou- 
quet of roses by a small girl. 

Mnsic Shields Presented 

At 11 a.m. the party reached the Boys' 
Central School, where His Honor the 
Lieutenant-Governor, who was attended 
by .Mr. H. J, Muskett, awarded the 
Junior Shield In connection with the 
singing contest. In doing no he said 
how pleased he was at the development 
of music since last year, nnd pointed 
out that this was a study that once 
learnt, they could never forget, and one 
which would be a great soui'ce of hap- 
piness to them In the years to come, 
lie also paid a irlhiite to Mr. H. J. Pol- 
lard, musical instructor. A number of 
songs were sung by the upils. 

The Senior shield, won by Sir James 
Douglas School, was handed by His 
Honor to Mttle Miss Hayward, nelce of 
Trustee Hayward. Mr. Paul, In address- 
ing the children, congratulated both 
tbem and their teachers on the work of 
th« term. He thought that the progress 
mi^de during the year In singing was 
largely due to the stimulus given by the 
Interest taken by His Honor. MVs. Jen- 
kins and Mr. Reginald Hayward also 
fpoke. The latter made his maiden 
■l>««ch a« School Trustee, and himself 
an old pupil of BIr Jaroea Douglas 
School, recalled th« time when he had 
participated in the brealtlng up of the 
t4rni. H« remarked that in thosa daya

which was also sung at the Boys' Ct»n- 
tral School. The arrival of Hin Honor 
was greeted with the National Anthem 
at both ao^ools, and he received three 
hearty cheers on leaving. 

Mr. Paul and the trustees also visited 
the North Ward Bchool, though Mr. 
Jayt magisterial duties prevented him 
from accompanying them. The general 
consensus of opinion was that eaqh lot 
of children seemed better than the last, 
their bright and healthy appearance af- 
fording much gratification to the au-

ing In a centre a silver lyre surrounded 
by smaller silver shields, on which will

dren assembled in the schoolyard, 
where the promotion list was read and 
the children received their rolls of 

The prize for the head of the school

On Friday a very large audience 
crowded the Drill Hall, where the 400 
pupils of the Lampson Street School, at 
Esriulmalt, assembled. 

.\fter the children had sung a num- 
ber of patriotic songs, Mrs. Birch, who 
Is one of the trustees, announced that 
she would give a gold medal next yeaf 
to the pupil making the highest marks 
at the entrance examlhatlon. This year 
Mrs. Birch gives a very handsome gold 
medal to the pupil who has made at the 
recent examination the highest marks 
in British and Canadian History. 

Mr. G. R. Robson, another trustee, 
told the boys that during the last few 
days he had obtained by private sub- 
scription enough money to buy unlforme 
for twenty-one cadets. This makes 
thirty-six uniforms altogether. There 
are seventy cadets In this school, and 
Mr. Robson Is confident that the people" 
of the municipality will provide uni- 
forms for all. The principal, Mr. Gale, 
Is an enthusiastic leader of the cadets, 
and believes the discipline is an excel- 
lent thing for the boys. 

Mr. Leonard Talt, after compliment- 
ing fne teachers and pupils, announced 
that In the Assembly Hall In the new 
building, there would be seating accom- 
modation for 800. The Minister of Edu- 
cation had yesterday promised 410.000

fpS^i^ MOTHER Vancouver Island 
sportsman's paradise, another in- 
land witer resort of compelling 
charm, another rendezvous which 
will play an important part in 
making the Island famous among 
the world's travelers — ail this, 
and a great deal more, can 
' fairly be applied to Cowichan 
Lake. It is not inferred that the 
lake and its beautiful, sinuous, 
wood-lined river have only been 
discovered. For the privileged 
few able to spend the time and 
money needed to reach their recesses they 
have long been well-known and popular. 
Through the enterprise of the E. & N. Rail- 
way Co. they are now, and will continue to 
be, available to the general public. 

"A tri-wcekly service from Victoria direct 
to Cowichan Lake!" This was the .announce- 
ment made by Mr. H. E. Beasley, general 
.superintendent of the Island railroad, two 
weeks ago. He promised that trains would 
leave the Store Street depot at 8 o'clock on 
the mornings of Wednesday, Saturday and 
Sunday for the remainder of the Summer. 
And, while he made no specific statement, it 
was gathered that, providing the traffic sup- 
port received is at all satisfactory, the schedule 
will be continued the year round. 

What a boon to the fisherman! '->■ 

How this assurance must have wetted the 
appetites of local huntsmen! 

Vv'hile those who delight in these favorite 
forms of outside pastime the sentiment ot 
gratitude was not confined to them. There 
are others, without the patience needed to 
wield a rod and fly successfully and without 
the steadiness of arm and accuracy of eye 
necessary to enjoy the chase, who art just as 
enthusiastic. They are the class who may be 
styled lovers of Nature — the class that finds 
its chief pleasures in getting away from the 
city, its responsibilities and duties, at least 
once a week. These people, as a result of 
the newly opened transportation system, have 
a fine, expansive and most attractive section 
to explore. 

With Cowichan Lake thus made con- 
veniently near to Victoria there Is no doubt

that it will develop rapidly into probably the 
most frequented of tUe^^Jnland water resorts 
in the vicinity of the cityr^'~Ttie lake is, ap- 
proximately, twenty-five miles long. It is 
divided into two sections, which are separated 
by a narrow piece of water termed "The 
Channels," There are streams and creeks 
running into it from all sides, one of which 
Leads into Bear Lake. To get a good idea 
6f "its character it is only necessary to glance 
at a map of the Island interior. This explana- 
tion is given to indicate that it is not only a 
large unbroken expanse, but rather is so cut 
up that it never fails to interest. One can 
take a launch and, making daily trips, visit 
new and delightful spots every time. 

Already, without the aid of railway con- 
nection, thp lake shores and the river banks 
are marked by artistic homes — some of them 
constantly occupied and others reserved by 
Vfctorians for Summer use. With the Coming 
of the puffing locomotive, however, it is safe 
to say that the district's charms will not be 
so exclusively enjoyed for long. It is a 
reasonable prophesy that it will not be many | 
months before there MM be built up at this 
site a bustling Utt^ comm»r»«tty. Bungalows

are under construction now, and, as the sec- 
tion becomes better known and the di.stance it 
appears to be away from this city less for- 
midable to the imagination, they Avill be ma- 
terially augmented. In the meantime there is 
no doubt that the trains to and from that 
point will be well patronized. The numbers 
who have taken advantage of the service thus 
far is accepted as a harbinger that Mr. 
Beasley, and other officials of the E. & % 
Railway, are going to be convinced that it wtif, 
be worth while to maintain th* I'WSfilil 
schedule for the twelve months, If 
not persuadad to give one or ttw

EW quotations bob up so tempt- 
ingly as the Psalmist's remark 
'•Of making many books there is 
no end." It makes one t.hro.w 
considerations of triteness to the 
winds when he finds a statement some thou- 
sands of years old fluttering so fresh and perti- 
nent (indeed, fresher and more pertinent than 
ever — as has been said many hundred timfis in 
all ages since!) !n Blizabeth's day, when first in 
England the Grub Street problem leaves a 
recorded imprint upon :in insensible public, we 
find local psalmists similarly lamenting. A 
generation later, in l632, Wither writes, •'How 
many dungboats of fruitless works do they 
yearly foist on His Majesty's subject.^!'" As 
a matter of fact, however, the total number 
of entries in the Stationers' Register for that 
year (though it did not, of course, include the 
entire number of publications) amounted to 

just two^l

paying znil^^^^mg at alt for thCtrVofk; 
Like many "other consideration^wjij^g""" 
prevailed " in their business, "^ this JdlT _ 
affairs had been largely their own fault. fCi 
many authors wrote only for the love of the 
thing and thought all commercial dealings 
vulgar, that the publishers could supply their 
meagre and precarious market without adding 
to their risks by paying their scribes — es- 
pecially when those who desired money were 
of the "poorer sort, materially at any rate, and 
hence had fewer friends among buyers. Pub- 
lishers, too,* counted on getting hold of manu- 
scripts which were being privately circulated in 
genteel circles and printing them for nothing. 
Let any modern (even an author!) who would 
not do the same thing under like conditions 
cast the first stone. Shakespeare seems to 
have known well enough that no outsider could 
hope to get on with gentlemen of the court if 
he consented to have his works printed at all, 
to say nothing of driving a bargain with a 
bookseller. Furthermore, no modern (even 
an author!) should forget how small was the 
early demand for printed books. Even in 
Wither's day, the market could not stand 
much more than two books a week. Perhaps 
Wither overlooked this when he wrote, "The 
Bookseller hath made Authors labor for his 
profit at his owne price." The author's com- 
plaint of inadequate rewards just as soon as 
he began to receive anything at all for his 
work 'may not be in itself conclusive. He 
complains today. "Inadequate" may only 
have meant that he thought the publisher was 
getting the lion's share. 

Authors' accounts of their moneys have 
generally been unreliable, and their expendi- 
ture has rarely adapted itself to their income. 
Poor John Stow is a case in point. He~^the 
most accurate historian of the Elizabethan era 
— said that he "made no gains by his travails." 
For his "Survey of London" he received three 
pounds and forty copies to sell for his own 
profit; and for his "Brief Chronicli" he was 
paid twenty shillings and fifty copies. It is 
not contended that these were large prices, 
only that his statement was inaccurate. Nor 
were these prices so pitiful as they appear. 
Stoddard in the same age paid to a school- 
master for a quarter's schooling and board two 
pounds eight pence. The yearly salary of 
"one godly learned preacher" appointed to 
Ripon was thirty pounds, of his two assis- 
tant ministers fifteen pounds, of two lesser as- 
sistants, six pounds ten shillings, of two clerks 
three pounds. A}\ these had their lodgings 
free, it is true, but they were allowed to hold 
no other preferment; and the six clerks of the 
city received lltree pounds a year without 
board or lodging. Thus if Stow received three 
pounds in cash for his book, besides the six 
povinds he might iiave derived from his gift 
copies, he received one-tenth of a bishop's 
yearly salary and the entire yearly salary of 
the town clerk. This is little enough, to be 
sure, for a book which (along with his "Brief 
Chronicle") had cost him not only the liest 
part of his life, hut of his little fortune besides. 
Yet both his labor and the money he had laid 
out with it were an investment of love; and 
people have done the same collecting butter- 
flies. James 1 gave Stow the right to appeal 
"for kind gratuities" and he seems (alas!) to 
have been reduced to a.sking for them with a 
basin on the street. But had James been ac- 
cused of niggardliness, he mig'nt have replied 
that there were people enough relying on him 
and he had not asked Stow to give up his life- 
time to writing books, much less to expend his 
fortune on them. 

Ben Jonson, too, was yielding to the gen- 
eral inaccuracy of authors when he told 
Drummond that he; had not got above two 
hundred pounds for all the works he h4d evdr 
written. He not only receive^ the uSuil 
^mounts paid for plays, but he had a grii[ 

deal out of his dedications besides. Further- 
more, James I. gave him a pension of about 
thirteen shillings a year, and though thi^ was 
a small sum it was certainly not intended to 
be satirical; the city gave him a pension of one 
hundred nobleis a year; Pembroke gave him 
regularly a New Year's gift of twenty pounds, 
and' the' Duke of Newcastle was also a gener- 
ous supporter — all because he was a poet. 
The distressingly humble tons of his letters 
■and dedications tc^ noble patrons was thus 
either conventional or indicated a nature as 
improvident as ihib age would decree it 
servile, tn however so sturdy a man. In the 
budget for the army, in Elizabeth's later 
years, the wages and victuals of two clerks. 
two millers, four bakers and four laborers, tor 
the entire year were reckoned at one "hundred 
and fifty pounds — not much over tv.elve 
pounds "apiece, and doubtless some of these 
men had families to suppoit. li twelve pounds

HEN Lord Bryon was a boy he was 

sent to school at Eton. Here he 

had as fellow-scholar Sir Robert 

Peel, and the two lads were great 

friends. One day a youth who 
was much older and stronger than either, and 
who was a noted bully, laid hold of Peel and 
began to thrash him unmercifully, because,' as 
he alleged, Peel had refused to "fag" for him. 
With (he ingenuity of boyish cruelty he had 
twisted Peel's arm round in such a way as to 
cause great pain. Hearing the cries of his 
friend Byron rushed on tlic scene. He was 
too-smafl and weak to defend Peel or rescue 
him; but in a voice that trembled between rage 
and sorrow, and with tears in his eyes, he 
begged to know how many strokes the bully 
was going to inflict. 'W^S^

had already shown such a 'capacity for scien- 
tific subjects that his father, afraid lest Ih.: 
boy should neglect his general culture, took 
pains to keep all math/?matical books out of 
the lad's reach until he should master Latin 
and Greek. But while patiently plodding at 
these languages the boy spent every moment 
he could spare from sleep or play upoT\ \\\> 
beloved mathematics. He had not a single 
book to help him, but he reasoned out things 
for liimself and drew his circles and triangles 
upon the floor of a garret with a bit of char- 
coal. One day whilst Blaise was absorbed in 
this occupation the door opened and his father 
entered, but the boy, uncpnscious of his 
father's presence, went on with his self- 
imposed task. His parent, astonished and de- 
lighted to find that without book or tutor the 
boy had actually progressed as far in his re- 

fjarches as the 3 2nd proposition of the first

' "^ "^^ O painter who is in any degree an 

artist stereotypes by means of , 
paint; his skill and materials are j 
the mediums by which he sets j 
forth to us something which we, 
because of our lesser faculty of vision, might 
have missed seeing in the original. 

Therefore, if a famous picture is not a 
revelation to us we may safely conclude that 
we have failed to look at it aright. No more 
than will a great creation in literature, or in 
music, will a great picture at once reveal all 
that is in it. Its beauty will appeal to, its 
harmonies will satisfy us, but it awaits full 
study before it is ours as it was the painter's. 

It is, therefore, impossible to take from a 
gallery or exhibition of pictures anything like 
a fully pleased or educative impression of the 
whole, or even of the half. One may "do" 
all the galleries jof Europe in that way and yfct 
fail to really see a single picture. In such cases 
the half is very much more than the whole 
in its effect upon the sightseer. 

It is better to take a few pictures which 
particularly appeal to one, and try to discover 
wherein lies their charm, what things of line 
and color, light and shade, subject and execu- 
tion, have gone to the making of the fascina- 

In landscape let us take MacWhirter's well- 
known "Silver Birches" as an instance. It is 
a picture which might well stand for "Thanks- 
giving for Sunliglit Received." What gives it 
that character? Perhaps, first of all, the vital 
grace of the tree-trunks. They rise from, the 
earth, clean, strong and sweet, like good pur- 
poses, sure of fulfilment in harmony 
with Nature. That fulfilment is in the foliage; 
a very crown of life is that mass of exquisite 
green and stin-warmed shades. The trees have 
wrestled with the mountain winds, have been 
fed from the rich earth on the dews and rains 
of heaven, and have received, the vitalizing 
sunlight into their hearts; and now, in their 
completeness, they give out their thanksgiv- 
ing of beauty and vitality, of dignity and grace, 
to the world around them. Fro;n the patches 
of sunlight on foreground and foliage the eye 
travels to the middle-distance, noting the 
softly sunny clearness of atmosphere in which 
the "distant hills stand. 

Mtich of this is, of course, lost in a black- 
and-white print, and in a photogravure; never- 
theless, good speciments of either will give 
"tone values" which will both delight and train 
the eye. 

Much can be learned by comparing differ- 
ent pictures on the same, or somewhat the 
same, subject. Take "Venus and the Mirror'" 
by Velasquez, ai^ Botticelli's "Birth of V^nus." 
In the former the absolute yerfection of the 
nude form is a marvel of enchantment, and the 

attitude of the. attendant "Love" is that of one 
conscious of the enchantment; but the head 
of the goddess disappoints by its heavy, 
ordinary contour, and the face reflected in the 
mirror is entirely, commonplace, merely 
"female." having nothing of the enchanting 
gaiety, the wistful sweetness, the passion of 
tenderness, the gracious dignity of womanhood 
as love, which looks at us from the true Venus: 
and, naturally, significantly, the attendant 
Eros is winged. On the other hand, the Venus 
of Botticelli is a presentment of a great con- 
ception of true loveliness and love. There are 
no fleshy rounded masses, but the lines of the 
delicate 'form have a grace to which mere 
"mass" cannot attain. You feel that the 
lovely body is informed by a yet lovelier soul 
The wistfulne.^s in the pose of the small, ex- 
quisite, feminine head, the sweet lines of the 
hiouth, the innocence looking questioningly 
from the tyt%, the purity and tenderness of the 
Whole, are characteristic of the painter who 
could see deeply into life. 

Amongst other points worth contrasting 
are hands as painted by different artists. 
Vandyke gave long, pointed hands, character- 
less save in their suggestion of artistry; yet, 
also, of coldness, in their owners^ Botticelli, 
on the other hand, dcligl^ted in hands which 
were by no means small, when the propor- 
tions of the figures are taken into considera- 
tion; thev are finely and fully developed in 
every detail. Waniith and life are shown in 
the beautifully rounded tips, lendernc-Js and 
power chnracteri.Te the hands as a whole. They 
are the very antithesis of ;both the narrow, 
nerveless, or spasm.odic "hand of the "blood- 
less" school of saints, and of the merely 
"fleshed," sensuous, verging on sensuality, 
hands of some other schools. 

We must not conclude, however, that. 
Velasquez could paint only flesh. In his por- 
trait of "Princess Maria Theresa of ^JJ^tri^^" 
the child-soul looks out above all thr"*stitf, 
formal finery until you see no longer the 
royil trappings, but only the caged child. 


Although both are so well known as to be 
almost hackneyed, there are two portraits of 
Lady Hamilton which bear much looking into. 
In the one vvhich represents her with a lamb 
she is the personification of soft, charming 
gaiety, a creature by nature so innocent that 
she can be enchantingly sportive. In the 
"Bacchante" .something vaguely repels you. 
The face is less radiant, it is somewhat in- 
dolent, suggestive of a kitten basking; in its 
curves and foreshortening, the left arm sug- 
gests something far from attractive in a human 
being. It would perhaps, be too brutal to say 
it reveals the "mere animal, but it certainly re- 
ttiit^ls one of the limb of a soft, pretty 
creature which could be kept on leash by what 
it desired for its pleasures and ease, not 

treacherous, not vicious, not sensual, but lov- 
ing its good things above all else, and so, 
finally, giving its soul for them. These things 
are in the curve of that arm, and, thereby. 
Romney gave, us the key to the tragedy of 
Emma, Lady Hamilton's career. 

Do not praise pictures because others are 
doing so. Take symbolism, for instance; it 
may perplex, even bore you, for a time at 
least, and you can learn nothing by following 
the crowd. There is no true -appreciation of 
art, any more than there is of any. other thing, 
without sincerity, and the man to whom 1 had 
drawn attention to one of Blake's horses was 
perhaps farther on towards really looking at 
a picture than are many whom his Philistine 
levity horrified when he exclaimed, "Is that a 
horse? — If I didn't take it for a night-mare!" 
Do not be carried" away by enthusiasm for 
"technique," nor by the parrot-cry of "Art for 
Art's sake." The painter and his picture are 
greater than those things. 

Vi'hcn a picture "arrives," so to speak, peo- 
ple in general find out what i*s being said, and 
set themselves to echo that. If you .should do 
tliis you must inevitably miss more than you 
can ever know.. Rather wait for the some- 
thing yourself, or in your life's experience, 
which will enable you to understand the pic- 
ture, or at least what it means to you. 

Take Whistler's "Portrait of Miss Alex- 
ander." Frankly, that picture hurt me, but 
when I ventured to say so and why, I was met 
by a chorus from horrified friends of — "But 
the technique!"— "The art!" — "The wonder- 
ful greys!" — "The subtlety of the tarnished 
gilt!" Yet I could only persist that I saw an 
unchild-like child standing forlornly. "Oh," 
they said, "you haven't the right perspective. 
The picture is badly hung in this exhibition. 
You have to get up on a table to get the cor- 
rect view." Still, 1 only wanted to tie the 
child's sash gracefully, to clothe her becoming- 
ly, to "mother" her, and to teach her that there 
was such, a thing as "play;" and I said so, but

•I have spoken of an English and a French 
boy; let me tell you something of a little Ger- 
man boy. 

Heinrich Heine was a little. German-Jew 
who was born in Dusseldorf. From his 
earliest days he knew what it was to be 
despised and persecuted, and perhaps it was 
just because he suffered so much himself that 
he learned to sympathize with those who suf- 
fered. Lessons'were a hard task to him; and 
the only difference he could discern between 
the irregular and the regular verbs were that 
the former involved more floggings! The 
school was in a F.ancistan convent; and we 
are told that young Heine prostrated himself in 
misery before a crucifix and prayed to the 
image of our Saviour "O help me 10 lemember 
the irregular verbs!" 

As a boy Heine adored the great Napoleon, 
and when that Conqueror made his entry into 
Dusseldorf at the head of his troops, the little 
German-Jew. all wild with excitement, climbed 
up a lamppost that he might see Napoleon bet- 
ter, and cheered him as he passed. Heine had 
an instinctive love of liberty; and the most 
beautiful story of his school days tells us how 
he looked with pity on the poor birds — 
thrushes, larks and blackbirds — which the 
country-hoys captured and brought in cages to 
the .school. Like other boys he got pocket- 
money, but instead of spending it <y\\ balls or 
sweetmeats, he would bargain with those 
country boys for their birds, and then no 
.sooner did he get them into his possession 
than he opened the cage doors and set the 
poor captives free! 

One other nolile characteristic of Heine war 
his warm love for his mother. When he was 
a student his father lost money And was un- 
able to keep him longer at college, but hi^ 
mother sold all her jewels that her dear 
Heinrich might get his education completed. 
And her son never forgot her unselfishness. 
Long ?fter, when an exile, paralyzed and 
blind, he lav dying in Paris, he sent long 
cheery letters to his mother; and when a 
friend asked how his mother bore the new.^ 
of his sufferings, he replied: "Why, my mother 
does not know; do you think I would vex hei 
dear heart by letting her know ItQW ill 1 am? '* 
—Alexander Small, B. L. 

The Johnsons, according to a recent story, 
had an old he.n wh« insisted upon neglecting 
her comfortable nest to lay a daily t%% in the 

coal cellar. 

"I can't think," fretted Mrs. Johnson, as 
she and her small son Joe together hunted for 
that particular egg, "why this one hen insists 
upon using the coal bin." ,

Mr. Winston Churchill's last story "The 
Inside of the Cup," is probably the best he has 
yet written. It shows deep thought and 
"earnest conviction, and the r^der feels that 
not alone is he following the struggles and 
trials of the young clergyman in the story, 
but that he is learning of the writer's own 
seeking after enlightenment and a renew||.,<)!f 
faith. We have passed .i^ie^ time whert^Jriiim 
and yromen were willlrii|iio accept unquestion- 
Ittgly the teachings of tl»#,i^urch, just be- 
cftuse it is the tetchlng of the Church. Man- 
Hind wants something more than this. The 
passing of the centuries has witnessed the In- 
tellectual progression of man, the slow 
awakening *bf all of his reasoning powers, 
until he has come to realize that he is an in- 
dividual, and as an individual requires in- 
dividual proof and conviction, or else be can- 
not accept. As Mr. Engel, the little librarian 
in Mr. Churchill's story, says:, "The indi- 


The credit of proposing confederation has 
been a.ssigned to different politicians, to 
George Brown, to Sir John Macdonald, to Sir 
Alexander Gait. Of the part leaders it was 
George Brown who first came forward holding 
out his hand to his rival, Sir John Macdonald, 
to propose coalition for the relief of the situa- 
tion. But Mr. Brown's original proposal was 
not a confederation of all the provinces, but a 
substitution of a federal for the legislative 
union between the British and the French 
province. What Sir John Macdonald, as a 
strong Conservative and monarchist, preferred 
was not a federal but a legislative union of all 
the North American colonies under the British 
crown. What all alike wanted was a relief 
from the situation, and for this purpose a coa- 
lition Government comprehending the two 
rivals and enemies, Sir John Macdonald and 
George Brown, with followers of both; . was 
formed, 1864. The fact is that the real author 
of confederation, so far as British and French 
Canada was concerned, was deadlock. 

The three maritime provinces. Nova Sco- 
tia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Is- 
land, were inclined to a separate union among 
themselves, especially wtih a view to a reduc- 
tion of the expenses of government. A con- 
gference of delegates from these three maritime 
"provinces was held at Chaj;lottetown, 1864. 
To that conference delegates were sent by the 
coalition Government of Canada to propose 
a wider union. The result was a conference 
at Quebec, 1865, at which twelve delegates 
were present from Canada, seven from New 
Brunswick, five from Nova Scotia, seven from 
Prince Edward Island, two from Newfound- 
land. That conference sat for eighteen days 
and passed seventy-two resolutions, on which 
the Act of Union was afterwards based and 
which each delegation undertook to submit to 
its own Government. 

By the Parliament of the two Canadas the 
scheme was at once accepted and by a large 
majority, though there was a long debate, in 
which a speaker of the Opposition glanced at 
the geographical unfitness of the long and 
broken line of provinces for political union. 
New Brunswick, not being adroitly ap- 
proached, at first rejected the scheme, but 
presently acquiesced. In Nova Scotia the re- 
sistance was very, strong, but it still remains 
?L mystery by what arguments a legislature 
elected expressly to oppose cohfederation was 
brought round to its support. Brought round, 
however, the legislature of Nova Scotia was. 
Howe, after a vain appeal to the British Par- 
liament to set Nova Scotia free, himself took 
office in the confederation Government. 
Prince Edward Island held out, but 
came in at last. British Columbia 
threatened repudiation of the union, till 
the construction of the Canadian Pacific 
Railway, which was the condition of 
her entrance, was assured. Newfoundland 
still remains unfederated. But a great addition 
was soon afterward made to the Dominion by 
the purchase of the Hudson's Bay country, 
now comprising the Provinces of Manitoba, 
Alberta and Saskatchewan. The accession of 
Newfoundland alone is wanted to com.plete 
the scheme of confederation. The .".cheme 
having been framed by the colonial legislature, 
was laid for revision before the British Gov- 

v i duai once r eleased f r om exte r na! auilioriiy, 
can never be turned back to it." And they 
have been released by the hundreds of 
thousands Ayer.-sincfi-.Luthfir.'&.Jime>-JUid.arfe- 
being freed by the hundreds of thousands to- 
day.' iDemocracy, learning, science are ^ rip- 
leasing them, and ^o man, no matter how 
great he may be, ^ft,>j^em tha^ ti^e.. The 
able men of the Chmtes now at^' feginning- 
to see this. They are those who developed 
after the vows of the theological schools were 
behind them. Remove those vows,,|^|^ you 
will see the young men come.' Younp^B^ are 
idealists, and they embrace other professions 
where the mind is free, and which are not one 
whit better paid than the ministry. And what 
is the result, "continues Mr. Churchill, 
through the little librarian," of the senseless 
insistence on the letter instead of the spirit of 
the poetry of religion. Matthew Arnold was 
a thousand titnes right when he. Inferred that 
Jesus Christ never spoke literally—and yet he 
is still being taken literally by most churches, 
and all the literal sayings which were put into 
his mouth g^feyi^aintaind as gospel truth. 
What is thib^pH-of proclaiming Christianity 
in terms Of an ancient science and theology 
which awaken no quickening response in the 
minds and hearts of today. The librarian in- 
dicates the rows and rows of volumes on re- 
ligion and philosophy and declares tliat the 
new win<& has burst tto^j^jMl skin and is run- 
ning all over the worwh ^ "^*^Ah, my fri^j^v be 
continues, "if you could only see as I §wWi^ 
'yearning for a satisfying religion which exists 
in a big city. It is like a vacuum, and these 
boo^s are rushing to supply it. This library 
is my Church and men and women of all 
creeds come here by the thousands." 

There is so much truth in what Mr. 
Churchill says, that it would be well if all re- 
ligious institutions could be brought to ap- 
preciate it. We have heard it said that what 
the Church needs is a great revival, but pos- 
sibly the time has passed for that sort of thing 
in the generally accepted sense of the word. 
The Church needs its own eyes opened ; the 
people's eyes have been opened for a long 
time. The people demand more than the 
Church can give, or will give. It is this fact 
which Mr. Churchill so strongly emphasizes. 

Mr. Hodder, the 3-oung clergyman of this 
story, has been preaching for some years, 
when he is brought to a realization that the 
Christianity as practised by the Church of 
which he is a rector falls very far short, in 
fact is little less than a libel on the Christian- 
ity as promulgated by Jesus of Nazareth. 
This awakening causes a sudden revulsion in 
the mind of the young man, and for a little 
while all of his old faith slips away from him. 
He reads the scientists and the philosophers, 
and the critics, he goes down in the slums of 
the town and tries to understand the reason 
for such conditions, and the means to al- 
leviate suffering and to prevent disease and 
crime, in time his old faith returns, 
strengthened and purified, purged of narrow- 
ness and dogmatism. He realizes that his 
work is still in the Church, i'nd that the 
Church can be made God's greatest power for 
the uplifting of humanity. He continues to 
preach, bui his sermons drive away most of 
his richest parishioners, as he expected they 
would do, but bring to him a multitude of the 
poor and needy. "He perceived at last the 
form all religion takes is that of consecra- 
tion to a C^use — one of God's many causes. 
The meaning of life is to find one's Cause, to 
lose one's self in it. His was the liberation of 
the Word — now vouchsafed to him; the free- 
ing of the spark from under the ashes. To help' 
liberate the Church, fan into flame the fire 
which was to consume the injustice, the 
tyranny, the selfishness of the world." , 

This story is one which is well worth 
reading by everyone, but especially by those 
who have taken upon themselves the sacred 
responsibility of instructing others in the name 
of Jesus Christ: — Macmillan & Co., Toronto, 


Characteristic bits from "l.avengro," the 
curious and delightful book of George Bor- 
row, show his attitude toward the fetiches of 
modern civilization: He describes the wander- 
ings of a bookish man who disliked the tram- 
mels of civilized life and who, rather than be 
confined always in four walls, chose to drift 
about the world in a tinker's cart, for ex- 
ample, picking up his living here and there by 
humble service to others and studying human 
nature. On one occasion he gets himself out

A^llHHlls a beautiful young woman whom 
the gods have endowed with supernatural 
power. She is immoral and unscrupulous, but 
she loves a young Crusader, and for his sake 
tries to appear as if endowed with all the 
tenderest and sweetest qualities. For a "time 
the eyes of the young man are so blinded by 
Armide's beauty that he cannot see beyond 
her physical charms, and when at last he 
awakens to a realization, Armide's terrible 
anger is aroused and she swears to be avenged 
upon him. 

Her uncle, commander-in-chief of the 
army against which the Crusaders have been 
fighting is to return, bringing with him the 
captive Christians, and a great festival is 
planned in his honor. Armide declares that 
she will marry the rnan who can vanquish 
Rinaldo, and when Aront appears and tells 
that Rinaldo has overtaken him and set the 
captive Christians free,* the people cry for 

That night in the woods Rinaldo goes 
forth alone to meet the enemy, when Armide 
appears, and casting over her one-time lover 
a magic spell carries him away with her to her 
palace. Here she detains him, and he, in- 
toxicated by his love for her, to which the 
spell has given a rebirth, forgets the call of 
duty. But Armide, conscious that her power 
over him is waning, summons the Fury of 
Hate to her aid, then, fearful for the result, 
turns the Fury away. 

Ubaldo and another knight come to the 
Magic Wood to search for their young com- 
panion, Armide trios to thwart them but is 
overpowered. ^^>' 

In the last act Rinaldo and Armide are in 
the latter's palace, and Rinaldo is still under 
the spell of the enchantress. The Crusaders 
appeal^ and when Rinaldo sees them, he re- 
members his quest and throws off the en- 
circling arms of Armide, bidding her farewell 
forever. In her rage and disappointment she 
curses her magic; the palace falls and she dies

So our dear Caruso is in trouble againj 
says Musical America. 

And it is all on acount of a woman — as 

The daily.. papers, last. Sunday, contained 
cables that Caruso had made a scene in the 
lobby of the Savoy Hotel, through his unde- 
sired 'attentions to a handsome lady who. was 
under the escort of a prominent American. 
According to a cabled report, when Caruso *\<'as 
called to account he stuck his cl;^^ut and 

"I can do anything I want— 1 am Caruso!" 
Then, when fight was imminent, Signor 
Caruso disappeared in the elevator and rose 
— not to heaven, but to his sleeping apart- 
ment on one of the upper floors. 

One would have thought that some cer- 
tain experiences that Mr. Caruso had in this 
country in the Zoological Department of Cen- 
tral Park would have induced him to be a lit- 
tle more careful and discreet. 

With the announcement of the organiz- 
ation of the National Opera Company of Can- 
ada, and the acceptance by Max Rabinoff of 
'the director generalship, comes information 
indicating that from next season the Dominion 
is to be an important factor in grand opera 
on this side of the Atlantic. In this Canadian 
grand opera movement several cities have 
combined. It has a direct interest in this 
country as well, for the National Opera Com- 
pany of Canada will visit the United States 
next season. Montreal, Toronto, Quebec and 
Ottawa have united in projecting a grand op- 
era organization of high quality. It will pro- 
vide a season of grand opera in each of those 
cities. Then it will come to the United States 
for five weeks in certain cities of the first 
class that are not visited by the leading Ameri- 
can grand opera organizations. The choice 
of Mr. Rabinoff for director general was made 
by the financial intere.sts back of the grand 
opera movement, the richest and most influ- 
ential men in Canada. Mr. Rabinoff, who was 
largely instrumental in bringing about perman- 
ent grand opera in Chicago, hopes to arrange 
for guests artists from the Chicago-Philadel- 
phia and the Metropolitan opera organizations 
to appear with the National Opera Company 
of Canada. Aside from this, singers of note 
will he engaged, and as an additional feature 
Anna Pavlowa, whose American tour is under 
the management of Mr. Rabinoff, will appear 
wtih the National Opera Company of Canada 
in Montreal and elsewhere. — Musical America.

Stories of Old Rome. — Sylla 

Sylla was a product of the times. Given 
an earlier century, he would have lived as ex- 
emr;lary a life, perhaps, as some of the bravest 
and best of the old Romans, as It was, he be- 
came, early in his youth, contaminated by the 
immorality, the hce'ntiousness, the love of lux- 
ury, the depravity of the prevailing class in 
Rome; and, a young man of strong and virile 
character, never learned the great lesson of 
bridling his passions, so that as he grew older 
he became hated and feared for his merciless- 
ness and his sensuality. And yet he was a 
brave man and a skilful soldier; besides this he 
was witty and well-read, he possessed an at- 
tractive personality and made friends very 
readily when he wished to do so, and women 
loved him because he could be very humble and 
gentle and winning when lie chose. He was 
born in poverty, but while he was yet a mere 
boy he paid court to a very rich woman, years 
older than himself, and so taken was she by 
his youth and charm that when she died she 
left ' him all her great fortune. So 
when he reached man's estate, he was able to 
take his place in the world aa|;^^|^" 

"fmm-those in authority: '■ -' .-■ -■- '••.-£•." 

We tlnd him qusstor to Marius in the yem ' 
of the latter's first consulship, and later 6n 
holding an important post in the army durmg 
the war with Jugartha. But being very am- . 
bitious and daring, he sought -to rival Marius 
by his warlike exploits, and Marius, disdaining 
jiSradvance him or to consider hirfC'as a com- 
petitor, he resigned from one branch of the 
army to serve under Catulus, Marius' col- 
league. Catulus,. not possessing sufticient ini- 
tiative or enterprise to make a good general 
himself, was very glad to give the most im- 
portant commands to Sylla, who began to dis- 
liniruish himself by subduing the barbarians; 
making foraging expeditions in the very teeth 
of the enemy; disguising himself and going 
amang the latter and learning their plans; in 
short winning so much commendation,- that 
Marius, the long-time idol of the people, be- 
:ran to grow jealous, and from this time dates. 
The terrible feud between these two men which 
was io plunge Rome into civil strife, and bring 
•ibout the most terrible social conditions. 

In our story of the life of Caius Marius we 
Mve already described how Sylla gained the 
■■scendency for a time and banished the old 
o-encral from his mother country, and while 
quid reigned in Rome, Sylla grasped the op- 
ortunity to take the field against Mithridites. 
But his first efl'orts were directed toward the 
capture of the cities of Greece, and success 
ioUowed him in all his undertakings. In this 
ar .nothing remained sacred, to Sylla; he cut 
aown the timber in the sacred groves of 
Athens to use in building his fortifications; he 
broke into the temples and took the. precious 
ofi'erin'gs there. He wrote to his colleagues at 
Delphi, bidding them rob the temples, and it 
is told how Caphis, who undertook this unwel- 
come task, was loath to touch the holy things, 
and entered the sacred precincts with the tears 
streaming down his face. While he was 
mounting the steps of the temple, he heard, he 
declared, the sound of sweet music from the 
inner shrine, and believing it a warning from 
the gods to desist from this work of desecration, 
he sent word to Sylla, describing the occui-- 
rence. Sylla replied scotiingly that music was 
a sign of joy, and the gods meant by this token 
to welcome Caphis. Time was when even the 
barbarians would have been expected to re- 
spect the temples of the Greek gods, for the 
most distant nations used to send to Delphi to 
consult the oracle and abide by its decision; 
but Rome, in losing caste herself, sneered at 
the dignity of those whom she had once humbly 
supplicated. '■ 

At tliis time the tyrant Aristion had by his 
misrule so reduced the once proud city of 
Athens, that her. senators and priests came to 
him and begged him that he treat with Sylla 
for peace, for they knew they could make no 
stand against the Romans, so depleted .was 
their'garrison through disease and hunger, the 
people having only boiled down shoes and oil- 
bags to eat, and this while Aristion caroused 
and feasted in the midst of death. The tyrant 
drove the senators and priests away with a 
flight of arrows, but sent a few of his revel- 
ling companions to parley with Sylla. The 
Roman general heard them through, and tlien 
made answer: "My good friends, you may 
put up your speeches and be gone. I was sent 
by the Romans to Athens, not to take lessons, 
but to reduce rebels to obedience." 

And this is how Plutarch describes the tak- 
ing of the famous old city: "When they had 
thrown down the wall and made all level be- 
tween the Piraic and Sacred gate, about mid- 
night Sylla entered the breach, with all the 
terrors of trumpets and cornets sounding, with 
the triumphant cry of an army let loose to 
spoil and slaughter and scouring through the 
streets with swords drawn. There was no 
numbering the slain; the amount is to this day 
conjectured only from the space of ground 
overflowed .with blood. For without mention- 
ing the execution down in other quarters of 
the city, the blood that was shed about the 
market place spread over the whole Cerami- 
cus with the double gate, and, according to 
iKpjjt writers, passed through \^€ gate and 

overflowed the suburb. Nor did the multitudes 
whicli fell thus exceed the numbers of those 
who, out of pity and love for their country, 
which they believed was now finally to perish, 
slew themselves; the best of them, through 
despair of their country surviving, dreading 
themselves to survive, expecting neither hu- 
manity nor moderation in Sylla. At the tak- 
ing of the town the tyrant fled into the citadel, 
and u.i there beseiged by Curio, who had 
that charge given him. He held out a consid- 
erable time, but at last yielded himself up for 
want of water, and divine power immediately 
intimated its agency in the matter. For on the 
same day and hour that Curio conducted him 
down, the clouds gathered in a clear sky, and 
there came down a great quantity of rain and 
filled the citadel with water.' . . .Not long 
after Sylla won the Pirasus and burned most of 
it, among the rest, Philo's arsenal, a work very 
greatly admired." ' 

It was during this war that Sylla possessed 
himself of a library containing Aristotle's 



^Mfid^ttiattiB the 



Charlemag«fe^'^^^Sijfe^^png, Ki^ Of 
the Franlcs, and his imperH^^pSrwas in ad- 
dition to that which was his %y inheritance. 
France as such . had then no political ex- 
* istence in the sense we understand that name 
today. On Charlemagne's death he was suc- 
ceeded by his son Philip, to whom reference 
has been made in the Story of France as 
Louis the Debonaire. During his lifetime the 
great Emperor had divided his realms be- 
tween his three sons, but Louis, the youngest 
and most incapable of them all alone survived 
him. The only quality which Louis in- 
herited from his father was his size, for he 
also was a man of gigantic proportions. He 
was twice married, his first wife being named 
Irmingarde, by whom he had three sons. She 
died in early life, and he then married Jutta, 
a beautiful Bavarian, whose vigor combined 
with charm preserved the empire for a time 
from disruption. Jutta had one son. to whom 
refefence has already been made in the Story 
of France, and v/ho is known as Charles the 
Bold. The sons of Irmingarde were Lothar, 
Pipin and Louis. They were incensed at the 
favor .shown by their father to their half-^ 
brother Charles, and, rebelling, took him 
prisoner. They were soon at odds amongst 
themselves, and Lothar was left alone with an 
ambitious design to seize the empire during 
his father's lifetime. The shrewdness of 
Jutta enabled her to thwart his plans and pro- 
cure his submission to his father. But her 
triumph was not of long duration, for when 
Lothar and his brothers learned that she de- 
signed to secure the succession to Charles and 
their exclusion from any share of the imperial 
power, they again rose in rebellion. They 
marched against Louis at Worms with a large 
army, but there was no occasion for fighting. 
The troops of Louis deserted him in such 
large numbers that the place where his army 
was encamped became known as Lugenfeld, 
or the Field of Lie.s. Again the Emperor wa« 
taken prisoner, and this time he was sub- 
jected by his son Lothar to the deep humiha- 
tion of doing penance, kneeling on a hair- 
cloth, in which position he read a paper de 
daring himself to have been guilty of perjury, 
theft and murder, and stating that he had been 
influenced to these acts by the witchcraft of 
Jutta. Lothar now assumed supreme power, 
l)ut was compelled by his brothers to restore* 
their father to liberty and to the throne 
Louis thereupon divided his empire between 
Pipin, Louis and Charles, Lothar being ex- 
cluded from any share in it. Lothar went to 
Italy, from which country he entered into ne 
gotiations with his brother Louis, whom he 
alarmed, and not without reason, by repre- 
sentations that Jutta intended to make lier 
son Charles ruler of the whole empire. Jutta 
was on the alert and she was able to bind 
Charies and Pipin in an alliance against 
Lothar and LouLs. At this crisis Pipin died, 
and Jutta at once turned towards Lothar in 
the hope of thereby strengthening the cause of 
her son Charies. Lothar was ready to desert 
his brother Louis for the sake of the stronger 
alliance, and it was agreed between him and 
Jutta that the empire should be divided be- 
tween him and her son. In the piidst of these 
unseemly intrigues Louis the Debonaire died. 
Charles soon discovered that Lothar had 
not abandoned his ambition to be the sole 
ruler of the empire, and he accordingly made 
an alliance with his half-brother Louis. 
Lothar made successful overtures to his 
nephew Pipin, son of his deceased brother, 
and the two parties determined to settle their 
dispute by arms. The result was a terrible bat- 
tle near Fontenay, in Brittany, in which 100,- 
000 men were slain, and so great was the 
number of nobles among the dead, that- there 
were hardly any left to marry the daughters 
of the noble houses. For years afterwards it 
was necessary to. confer titt»s upon yoimg 
women of the higher circle, so that the lady 

might not lose her rank. The war cc.uinued, 
and when peace was made in 843, it was 
agreed that the empire should be divided. 
Lothar was declared to be Emperor, and wa.* 
given as his exclusive territory the Nether- 
lands, the Rhine country, Burgundy and Italy, 
the whole being known as Lotliringia. 
Louis received Ihat portion of the empire 
whicli lay east of Lothringia and the title of 
a German king. Charles was given the coun- 
try west of Lothar's domains and the title of 
King of France. 

Lothar died in 85.S, having by will divided 
his empire between his three sons, neither of 
whom had much capacity for government. The 
imperial title was borne by Lothar IL Louis 
the German received with his kingdom a 
series of most distressing wars. He was b^set 
on the east by the Slavs, on the smitheast by 
the Bulgarians, and on the -north by a tribe 
known as the Obotrites. He died after a short 
and very troubled reign. He divided' hi?

After the de4ltt"'ijfMlh«Vf!\,"'5iarles the 
Bold of France set up a claim to the jmperial 
crown. It was disputed by Louis the Younger 
of Germany. The fortunes of war decided in 
favor of Louis, who became German Em- 
peror. His xtrgw was turbulent. The Norse- 
men, the Arabians and the Slavs assailed him. 
The great vassals refused to acknowledge -his 
authority and the Pope was hostile to him. 
He died in_ 882, leaving no children, and the 
crown passed to his brother Charles the Thick, 
who thus became ruler of all Germany. He 
shortly after was able to reunite France to his 
empire, and thus became supreme over a very 
large part of the land which had been con- 
quered by Chariemagne. 

Charles was good-natured and indolent, 
and his reign was conspicuous chiefly because 
of the great concessions made by him to the 
Pope, whose political power may almost be 
said to have dated from this period. After a 
reign of five years the great vassals rose 
against him and he was deprived of his crown, 
an indignity which he survived only a year.

country. When we read in Genesis that 
Abram came out of Ur of the Chaldees, we 
are to understand that he came from what was 
at that time the chief centre of Chaldean 

In Ur were two great tefnples, one to the 
sun and the other to the moon. The former 
was 200 feet square and too feel high. It is 
estimated that 30,000,000 bricks were used in 
its construction. The temple to the moon was 
also a magnificent structure. These great 
buildings were strengthened by buttresses, 
were thoroughly sewered and were enriched by 
ornamentation. Everything about them indi- 
cated that the principles of architecture were 
well understood and that the workmen had at- 
tained a high degree of efficiency. It is im- 
possible to fix the date when these, great 
structures in Ur were erected. The inscrip- 
tions on the walls and on the tablets found iji 
the remains of this and tftber cities show that 
there was great rivalry between the various

The earliest known inhabitants of Baby- 
lonia have been called Sumerians. They were ^ 
supplanted by Semites, The latter, as was 
mentioned in the last preceding article of this 
series, are assumed to have come from Africa. 
They were the stock out of which the Hebrew 
race emerged. They were an exceedingly 
active and progressive people, and distinguish- 
ed, among other things, by their fondness for 
the sea. There is proof that they circumnavi- 
gated Africa twenty centuries before the time of 
Vasco de Gama. That they visited the 
British Isles long before the historic era is 
certain. It is by no means improbable that 
our own race draws its maritime instincts from 
this ancestral stock. We know less of the 
Sumerians. Their relation to the Semites in 
Western Asia resembles that of the people of 
ancient Rome to those of modern Europe. 
The Semitic invaders of Babylonia seem to 
have dealt with the more ancient possessors 
of the .land as the Teutonic invaders of the 
Roman Empire dealt with the inhabitants of 
that land. 

Concerning the history of Babylonia there 
are many sources of information, but some of 
them must be taken with many grains of al- 
lowance, especially in the matter of chron- 
ology. Bero.sus was a priest of Bel, who lived 
in tlie time of Alexander the Great. He 
translated the records of Babylonia into 
(ireek, and although his works have been lost, 
many quotations from them have been pre- 
served by other writers. Berosus speaks of a 
great deluge and says that before it ten kings 
reigned, and he places the aggregate duration 
of their reigns at 43 2,000 years. In compari- 
son with sucJi longevity as this, tlie accounts of 
the age of the patriarchs given in the Book 
of Genesis seem insignificant. After the flood 
there were, he .says, eight dynastie.s, the first 
of which was Chaldean, and it occupied the 
throne for 3 4, 080 years. The duration of the 
later dynasties cover more reasonable periods, 
for to \\^ monarchs he assigns only about 
1,560 years. We may perhaps be justified in 
inferring from this that what may be called 
the reliable history of Babylon extends only 
back for some 2,000 years before Christ* But 
long before that time the country was occupied 
by a race that had made great advances in 
civilization, and dynasty had succeeded 

The first sovereigns of this land of whom 
we have as yet any definite records appear 
to have lived in Ur, which name is an Ac- 
cadian word signifying "the city," whence it 
msfy be inferred that it was the capital of the 

and prosperity" Like many another of the 
world's great leaders, his ancestry was 
mysterious. He was said to have had no 
father. He was placed in an ark of reeds by 
his mother, and was carried away by the 
Euphrates to be rescued by a ferryman, who 
brought him up as his son until in due time he 
was recognized as "the constitutional king," 
which is what Sargon means. Among the 
works of this king was the collection of a 
library on astrology and astronomy, and copies 
of the works in it v/ere afterwards copied for 
use in As.syrian cities. 

It is said of tlie Babylonians that they were 
essentially a religious people. All their great 
structures were intended for religious pur- 
poses. Their vast temples rose stage after 
stage, each stage smaller than that on which 
it rested, and each differently colored. On the 
top stood a chamber serving the double pur, 
pose of a shrine and an observatory. In this 
respect the Babylonians differed from their 
successors, the Assyrians. The old religious 
instinct of the former found little reflection in 
the latter. Whereas with the Babylonians 
the temple was the chief thing with which 
monarchs concerned themselves and the 
palace was subordinate, among the Assyrians 
the palace occupied the first place and the 
temple came second. 

Many columns could be filled by a re- 
lation of the discoveries made in the ancient 
cities of the Euphrates Valley and the ad- 
jacent country, but space cannot be given to it. 
and moreover much study on the part of the 
reader would be necessary to co-ordinate even 
approximately the different narratives. In a 
general way "the results of discoveries among 
the buried cities is that thousands of years 
previous to what we have been accustomed to 
regard as history, great and highly-civilized 
nations lived in a land that for centuries has 
ceased to play an important part in the 

transactions of mankind. 



were annihilated an observer on the nearest 
fixed star would not miss it from the sky, for 
the reason that unless his powers of observa- 
tion are vastly greater than ours, he would 
never know the earth existed — on such a lit- 
tle globe there are beings almost infinitely 
littler than the globe itself, who have learned 
how to weight the sun and measure the dis- 
tance to the stars. Surely, then, bulk and 
weight do not constitute real greatness, nor is 
physical force the measure of power. Sure- 
ly there is in humanity a "hiding of power" 
the limitations of whi'ch we have no means of 
estimating. You have, perhaps, gazed at 
night upon the majestic constellation of 
Orion. If you do not know the group of 
stars which is called by that name, you should 
learn to recognize it. Its most prominent 
feature is the three brilliant stars constituting 
the "belt." In. this group there is a nebula. 
It may sometimes be seen by the naked eye 
when the sky is V^i^Rsil^ar. Its distance from 
us is U^P9PU(!!pl^/ 're'tnote, and yet we are 
able to '4|^^|l^^inething of its nature and

Speaking relatively, human nature is 
phvsically insignificant. Let us compare man 
with the' universe. The population of the 
earth is estimated at ' 1,500,000,000. As- 
suming that it has always been this number, 
it would require all the people who have lived 
in 500 generations to form a single rank 
reaching to the sun. But we know that the 
population has not averaged anything like 
what it is now. so that it is fairly safe to as- 
sume that, granting the greatest antiquity 
claimed for man by geologists, all the persons 
that ever have lived on the earth would not 
be sufficient to make such a rank. The 
weight of the earth is estimated at 6,550,000,- 
000,000,000,000,000 tons. Estimating the 
average lifting power of individuals, young 
and old, at too pounds, it would require more 
than 800,000,000,000,000 people to lift it. 
Now, reflect that flight travels from the sun 
to the earth in 8 minutes, and that some of 
the stars are so far away that their distance 
is expressed in ^hat are called "light-years,*' 
that is by the number of years light requires 
to cover the space between them and us. Then 
consider that the sun is 336,000 times as 
heavy as the earth, that there are stars many 
timss greater than the sun and that the ittrs 
ji umber probably millions upon millions. Pos-

But what has now )i|^:;|i^, applies only 
tQ,'ifti||i^-||«f.jter|ttta£;.and s^nl. ' while most of 
us cotifd teOTri'"'iftAfe facts for C''rselves, if we 
devoted our time to study and investigation, 
we have neither the time nor, in the majority 
of cases, the inclination to do so. Neverthe- 
less there is not one of us who has not at 
some time felt that in some m^'sterious way he 
is akin to the Power which is behind the physi- 
cal universe. It is possible that most of us 
have not felt this since the days of our youth. 
The physical has a wonderful way of en- 
grossing our thoughts, which, while it may 
often assist individuals in the accumulation of 
wealth, is by no means a good thing for 
humanity 'at large. We do not permit our- 
selves to rise above "this muddy vesture of 
decay" as much as we ought to. We are all 
too much inclined to be "of the earth earthy." 
And yet all of us have sometimes felt that we 
are more than physical beings possessing in- 
cidentally certain mental powers, but that we 
are in point of fact spiritual beings, who ex- 
press certain of their attributes through physi- 
cal means. Our reason may not be able to 
satisfy us how this can be so, and what 
we call science refuses to countenance such an 
idea, but in this as in many other things 
science has its limitations. It deals only with 
things that are material, and because it can- 
not weigh or measure the spiritual or get 
chemical reaction from it, science refuses to 
consider the spiritual at all, or even allow a 
place for it in the economy of existence. Yet 
we all know that we are greater than physi- 
cal things. The man, who asserts that the 
material is everything, knows when he says 
so that it is not true. The fact that men deny 
the spiritual is in a sense the proof that it 
exists, for the denial implies the existence of 
what is denied. Can a tree deny that it is a 
stone ? Can a fish deny that it is a bird ? We 
can conceive of the physical; we can conceive 
of the mental; we can conceive of the 
spiritual; but we cannot conceive of that 
which is neither physical, mental nor spiritual. 
We can only conceive of things that are, and 
the very fact that we talk about and argue 
about the spiritual proves that there is that 
which is spiritual. Get that idea firmly in 
your mind, that is, the impossibility of our 
even thinking of that which is different from 
something that we are or know. For a hundred 
and fifty years mathematicians have been en- 
deavoring to persuade themselves that there is 
such a thing as "a fourth dimen.slon." We, 
know of length, breadth and thickness. Is 
there another dimension? Length is the pro- 
longation of a point; breadth is the movementj 
of a line; thickness is the movement of a sur-j 
face. Thus the line is founded upon the' 
point, the surface upon the line and the solid j 
upon the surface. Can the solid be pro-| 
jected so as to form something else? Nobody' 
knows, and the reason that nobody knows is 
that nobody is able to conceive of a form; 
which has other qualities than lenjgth, breadth' 
and thickness. The most abstruse calcula"' 
tions and demonstrations leave the matter jtot, 
where they find it, and the reason Is tiiat hi«I 
vestigators do not know what they are trjfUtf 1 
to demonstrate. We cannot form a Coneirett: 
idea of anything dlfffercnt in principle Irotn 
what we aheady know. Therefdre.fl^ nmtn 
fact that we think of the spiritual estabUiliiii 
that there is such a thin; as the splriptaL

The value of the gourd 
family among vines is com- 
paratively little kmown. Its 
members are rapid climbers, 
luxurious and determined in 
their movements and show 
the individualism, even the 
freakishness of truly brilliant 
personalities. Their fruits 
take many extraordinary 
forms and colors. And many 
of these vines make in one 
sea'^on a growth of from ten 
to fifteen feet. 

The Culabash, or dipper-shaped gourd bears 
a fruit that is long and slender for two-thirds 
of its length, then widens abruptly into the 
form of a bowl, its intention being difficult. to 
follow. The dish-cloth or Chinese loofa gourd 
has inside its elongated fruit a spongelike net- 
work of tougn fiber useful as a sponge for 
bathing. The vlapanese on the contrary man- 
ipulate this substance so as to form the soles 
of their sandals. Tiien Miere is the egg-shaped 
i?ourd with its white oval fruit; the Turk's 
f-rban with fruit beautifully marked with red 
and suggestive of the common name; the ser- 
pent-shaped one with slender fruit three to five 
feet in len.f:th and striped like a snake, and the 
pear-shaped, the apple-shaped and Hercules 
club gourd.s, all bearing fruits curious in outline 
and remarkably decorative. 

Collections of the seeds of these gourds 
can be bought welt worth the moderate price 
they command, their ability being great to 
stir the interest of one concerned in the strange 
contortions of their fruits. As vines, moreover, 
they lost no time in covering fences, slopes, 
and arbors, also spaces unsightly and in need 
of a screen of heavy foliage.

probably not given heed .to the various kinds 
and qualities of shade which these respective 
vines produce. For this reason one frequently 
sees a small cottage with front porch of" re- 
stricted dimensions planted at both sides with 
the Dutchman's pipe, Aristolochia Sipho. Un- 
questionably this vine has beauty, but its 
broad heart-shaped leaves overlap each 
other so as to make 'a compact screen and 
literally to shut oue every bit of air that 
might find its way across the sm.all veranda. 
For such a place Clematis Jackmanni, with 
its delicate foliage and large violet-purple 
flowers, would be a better selection. Against 
honses of stucco or concrete' it is especially 
lovely. As is true also of all other June bloom- 
ing clematises, it should be prufted as soon as 
through flowering, that a vigorous growth 
may be secured for the next season. 

Akebia quiriata, a vine of much worth, yet 
not generally planted, is also i sensible choice 
for places where shade is needed sufficiently

No vines are more fa- 
miliar to all than the honey- 
suckles, especially the Japan- 
ese variety, Lonicera Hal- 
leana, which, wMth its yel- 
low arhl white slender-tubed 
flowers, rich .in fragrance 
and its delicate foliage in- 
clined to be evergreen, is one 
of the most satisfactory of all 
vines to . groM' either on 
porches or on fences and 
structures requiring to be 
covered quickly. The Bel- 
gian member of the family is 
also of pronounced popularity 
because of the continuous suc- 
cession of its bloom. 
The trumpet creeper, Bignonia radicanS, 
does it.s best service when used to cover un- 
sightly paths, old stumps, inartistic rockM'ork 
and the like. Bittersweet, Celastrus scandens, 
holds its clusters of piquant orange .and red 
fruit well over the Winter, and appears at 
home on rough stone walks, giving them 
plentiful decoration. A Japanese evergreen 
trailer. Euonymus radicans, seems at present 
likely to come into popularity for planting 
about the foundations (v houses. Its foliage 
is compact, glossy and of an attractive shade 
of green. The vine, however, is slow of 
growth, a difficulty somewhat overcome by 
the fertilization of it in early Spring and in 
July. Its paramount advantage, however, is 
that its sparkling little leaves remain green all 
Winter, lifting themselves above the snow as 
if bespeaking words of cheer and encourage- 
ment. who have built new homes, ex- 
pecting to occupy them for many years, should 
find, if possible, a place for this plant, even if 
n cannot be expected to give the "quick re- 
sults" so eagerly Sought by many and so er- 
roneously courted. 

Then there are the climbing roses, abW 
which a volume m^ight be written since so 

many ne^A^ and ever-blooming varieties have 
been placed on the market. The Baltimore 
Belle and Queen of the Prairies are neverthe- 
less hardly surpassed by any of the latter in- 
troductions, so excellent are they in habit and 
general attractiveness. Lady Gay, Dorothy 
Perkins and Hiawatha, one of the loveliest. or 
single climbing roses, are also well-known and, 
tested varieties among those that climb. 
' "Rose vines are particularly desirable to 
grow on arches, pergolas and other objects 
that are in themselves artistically made ;iad 
which do not require to be completely 
covered by a compact arrangement of foliage. 
rjk v#e-clad mm. ■ photographed to il- 
lustfitfelms point, '"sfl^ws a graceful construc- 
tion of combined strength and lightness; its 
proportions are generous, an archway, in truth 
possessing much comfort. Had it been built 
today it might have been dubbed a pergola. 
But it is many years old and built at an in- 
nocent sweet time before America had sinned 
SO widely -in misplacing her numerous per- 
golas. Veteran rose vines cover this archway, 
and when in bloom scarcely a conception could 
be more beautiful. — The Craftsman. 


Anyone can easily raise a stock or holly- 
hocks by sowing the seed as soon as possible 
after they are ripe. It is important to gather 
them as early as possible, because if left on the 
plants there is danger of loss from rotting as 
a result of the late Summer rains. The old- 
fashioned way of raising hollyhocks was by 
cuttings, and if one wishes to be sure of in 
creasing a given variety that is the only way. 
1 have grown a full set of Chafer's hollyhocks, 
which are the finest to be had, and found that 
they would reproduce themselves so nearly 
true from seed as to render the tedious cut- 
ting method quite unnecessary for the ordi- 
nary amateur. Sow seeds in July or August 
in a drill one inch deep in a sunny, rich soil, 
leaving plenty of space between the seeds to 
allow the young plants to grow without crowd- 
ing until next Spring — not less than four 
inches. The drills should be eighteen inches 
apart, to permit cultivation either with the 
wheel cultivator or hand hoe. At the ap- 
proach of Winter protect the plants by a light 
covering of straw and leaves with boards 
placed over all, both to hold the cover- 
ing and to shed water. This is, of course, best 
done by having two boards joined together to 
form an inverted V. If it is desired to keep the 
colors .separate, of course they must be 
labeled in the rows where sown; but if a mixed 
bed of hollvhocks is wanted it is far better to 
mix the seeds before .sowing, for somehow or 
other it is hard to plant a mixed bed from 
separate colors — at least it is hard to get it 
done .satisfactorily. 

When the covering is removed the follow- 
ing Spring the plants will be in perfect con- 
dition to transplant to the positions they are, 
to fill in the garden. When lifting them take 
great care to dig deep andf secure intact thff 
long, fleshy roots, as they are the standby irf ' 
the plants during the stress of hot weather and 
drought. The reason why there are so mtn; 
hollyhocks of only average quatHy see»», 
so few really good sges, Is ' 

care is given to preparing the soil. Double dig 
the place where they are to be planted and 
put a generous quantity of rich manure in the 
trench when refilling it; or feed freely all 
through .the growing. season with nitrate of 
soda, one-half ounce, and superphosphate and 
kainit, one-fourth ounce each, to tv/o gallons 
of water; Give this' biic&- in three weeks. 
...The all-outdoor cultivation of hollyhocks 
iS: fa^ more simple than the old way of start- 
ing them under glass and. moreover, gives us 
plants with stronger constitution. Treated in 
this way as a biennial, it will give better re- 
sults than when- grown as a pereniiial. 


' 'Very recently a distinct new race of holly- 
hocks has been introduced which promises 
to be very valuable to the amateur in that if 
sown early the plants grow to full size in the 
season and bloom profusely in late Summer — 
branching freely from the ground up. There 
' are both single and semi-double varieties, and 
the foliage is often distinctly lobed (showing 
evident traces of Althaea ficifolia), the colors 
are of m.any shades, and by a little selection we 
shall no doubt have as wide a range of color 
with equal perfection in form as exist today in 
the older hollyhock (A. roisea.) In their es- 
sential requirements these are the same as the 
older favorites and will certainly become 

One other advantage of the annuals is that 
they do not appear to be so liable to the disease 
which almost ruined hollyhock culture a few 
years ago. This system of growing the old 
type strictly as a biennial, sowing in July as 
directed, very materially lessens the liability 
to disease. 

Propagation by cutting is accomplished by 
taking pieces of young shoots, consisting of 
two joints with lower leaves removed, and in- 
serting them in fine soil frames during August. 
But I prefer seeds. 


A heavy-weight chicken wire is the best 
generally available trellis for vines, and some 
such accessory means of support should be 
stretched over the part of the house where the 
• vines are to be trained. It is essential that 
the supports be firm, and iron rods run at 
frequent intervals, to which the netting'can be 
securely fastened, are much better than wooden 
boards. Be sure to get a good, heavy- 
weight wire, because the weight of the plants 
becomes a considerable item in the course of 
a year or two and a light-grade of wire might 
give way under the strain. ^

Much might be written of Syracuse, Ravello 
and Concordia, much of Girgenti, the city of 
golden temples, .and much more of Taormina 
with its ci^mbling marbles of theatres and pal* 
aces sleeping under the perilous shadow of 
iEtna. But the queen city of Sicily is, after all, 
Palermo. There are few spots on the surface 

— O f t he globe more beau t iful than t his. Bu i l t on

._ some, rolling with a heavy swiEJi and. oXh&tS- 
leaping toward the sky and shaking from their 
amethystine crests, for foam, the fires of dawn 
and sunset. All round the city, sheltered by an 
an^pfajtheatre of towerihg: hills, slretches a fer- 
^e plain, .fancifully termed by the natives the 
Concha d'Oro, or golden shell. It is so called 
i)ot only from its shape, but t»ecause of the rich-

from these penimed, thickly-clustering gardens 
to ^he bare rock;^ which hem them in is very 
striking. ' ^ '■ ; ' 

.. Clasping the bay, and rising from it until it 
approaches the base of Monti Pellegrino, stands 
the city itself, warmly creann>tinted and roofed 
with diill red tiles. A city towered, c61urhned,

JTudas-trees, which cluster at the feet of the 
stern Violet mountains whose ghostly shadows 
melt into the blue of heaven. 

■^r "f * 


Uke hiost of the cities which stand on the 
Cpast of the Mediterranean, Palermo has had a 
c|il^(]uered history. In ttie early historic ages 
the Phoenicians built and traded along the coiast. 
The city next fell under the domination of the 
Qllhi^eAians. From them it was captured by 
ti^^'^'ei^ks" and held for a space, though tfiey 
left ho evidences of their presence 
such as the fine Greek temples of Segeste and 
Girgen'ti. Rome held it for a while as she held 
almost everything in central Europe, but, few 
traces of her sway remain: Then the Arabs 
took it ajid in less than two centuries set their 
seal so deep upon it tliat.aftcr the lapse of a 
thousand years the marks of their occupation 
abound on every hand. Under the Saracens, ' 
or in other words, the cultured Arabs, Palermo 
was a capital city of great importance. A 
traveler from Bagdad, writing in A.D. 943, says 
that it then had a formidable ninp-gated wall," a 
population of close upon half a million, and 
many mosques. 

After the Arabs— -who crumbled under that 
mighty "hammer of the Moors," Roger de^ 
Hauteville — came the Normans, Who imbibed 
in a large degree the culture of their Mussulman 
subjects, with the result that some of their 
churches and many of their country palaces are 
Moorish in their style of architecture, while all 
owe something of their grace and beauty to the 
fretted arches, the honey-combed ceilings, and 
the rich mosaics of the Arabian craftsmen. Set 
in its tropic garden and lulled by the plash of 
fountains,' the country palace of La Tiza. re- 
puted to have been built by the Norman King, 
William 1., looks as though it had been origin- 
ally the lovely dwelling of some Moorish mag- 
nate which the Norman monarch had enlarged 
to constitute a "lordly pleasure dome" for him- 
self and his suite, and that of La Cuba, built by 
his successor William II., bears the same ini- 
press.. These palaces set in the shade of pines 
and palms, of pale lemon Jrees and scarlet pas- 
sion flowers, of waving tresses of lavender 
wisteria and purple bougain villa, feathery ham- 
boos, pink hermosas, and blossoming spireas; 
with their amber-colored masonry and Oieir 
mosaics glittering in noonday twi'ljght ; might 
fitly have been reared on tne shores of the 
Bosphorus, or in vision of the silvery wafers of 
the Golden Horn. 

It is not to he wondered at that when the 
victorious Roger entered the charmed precincts 
of Palermo if is recorded that "he and his 
nephews chose for themselves delectable gar- 

dens abounding with water, and the knights 
were royally lodged in an earthly paradise." 

Before leaving the environs of Palermo 
for its- city streets, we visit that which must be 
pronounced its chiefest glory, namely, the 
Abbey Church of Monreale, which stands at a 
distance of f.our miles from Palermo on a lofty 
eminence on the southwest fringe of the Shell 
of Gold. All along the route orange and lemon 
groves bloom beneath us, filling the air with 
their fragrance and creeping down from the hill 
we are ascending to the lip and verge of the

have been oxidized by time and irfeather with 
\ints of green and blue which lend a subtle 
value to the delicate modelling of the, metal. 
Pushing aside the leathern ^urtain we enter a 
church of extraordinary magnificence. We say 
extraordinary advisedly, for there is nothing 
like it in the len^h and breadth of Europe. It

one-half of tHe central dome. of St. Paul's^ imd 
he a benefactpr of no mean prdter whik 
would set such a presence over the stir and* the 
passion of mighty and magnificent London. . 

Leavitt'lH: th^ cathedral we proceed to the 
cloisters .0? thie abbey wrought by Moslem 
hands under Norman direction. In this deli- 
cious court, the loveliest we have ever seen, a 
central fountain tosses up Its silver spray en- 
circled by two' hundred and sixteen paired col- 
umns, no two alike, and with endlcjss varia- 
tions of freakish" capitals suggesting the free- 
dom of Opthic sculptors. In their grace and 
beauty of -outline these cloisters remind us of 
the fairy splendor of the Spanish Alhambra. 
Little has been changed here since the monks of 
old, far from the noises of the busy world, its 
sound of wheels and its clang of hammers, 
meditated here in slumberous quiet and fra- 
grant peace. 

On this terrace high In a!r 
Nothing doth thf good monk care 

For such worldly things as these. 
From the gardens Just below 
Little puffs of rerfume blow, 
And a sound is in his ears 
Of the murmur of the bees 
In the shimmering chestnut trees, 
Nothing else he heeds or hears. 
All the landscape seems to swoon 
In the dreamy afternoon." 


Another stately memorial of a glorious past 
is the Cathedral of Palermo. It is a vast edi- 
fice imposing in appearance and .wonderfully 
varied in style and contour. Almost every 
artistic influence which has touched and shaped 
the city, whether Greek. Roman, Arabian or 
Norman, has left its mark on the stately edi- 
fice which is the centre of Palermian worship. 

The western towers stand clustered like the 
towers of the churches in the ancient towns of 
Normandy. The windows display Saracenic 
arches. The southern porch is decorated with 
foliated Gothic work. The apse combines

while dog-tooth and zigzag work give a Nor- 
man aspect to the western door. 

In the interior, however, we have some- 
what of a finished unitv. with the Moorish

and amber to the light, while eighty noble 
Arabic columns support the glorious roof.

we could not help entertaining the desire that 
her stately sepulchre might

HB book world of Elizabeth's day 
was in a state of the utmost con- 
fusion on account of three con- 
tending elements, the printer and 
the bookseller and the Crown. 
Elizabeth's royal printer in the first part of her 
reign had a salary of about six and one-half 
pounds a year. But he had besides rich pick- 
ings as a monopolist. His privileges and those 
of several others, granted by the Queen, bore 
so heavily on the smaller men of "such as do 
pilyve by' bookselling" that they began to pirate 
their licensed rivals' copyrights. ,, So . ejn^ 

'' 'ipHi^tpi 'i^'lg^ t^^^-imemtf 
■ j{ iijrt it iirasj^*xtreme!y difficult 

ijl^.pai: up even a piratical livhig. 

cottdiiion of affairs proved equally 
fdrtuiigte to the men who were to become pro- 
fessional writers and' to succeeding . genera- 
tions. For the privileged booksellers were too 
busy with their monopolies and with printing 
for nothing the manuscripts . of gentlemen to 
bother with risks of any sort. 'Consequently it 
Is to the piratical and hand-to-mouth pubi 
Ushers that we owe our first professional class 

of authors, ;t n d alt of t he dramatic and mucltvf 
the poetical and popular literature in the reign 
of Elizabeth and James. 

_ W hen t he unlicensed bo oks<eller finally had 
won his war ^with the Queen and with the 
in^inter, he: had established (without particu- 
larly fheaning to do so) the class who lived by 

. their pens. His fight for a living had obliged 
Mm to lure writers to turn thii^ hands to any- 
.thing which promised returns for him; and thys 
began the extensive pam|^^ ^|id ballad pub*' 
licatioii, of the day. PajlB^lliets'rOf a-Coh'^rp- 
versial or a scurrilous nature, and topical street 
tallads, both written on any excitement of the 
hour, poured in an unending torrent from the 
precarious presses. < Ballads sold for a penny, 

and a baflad-vendQUwj^j^gYf.^? *o have taken 
in as much as twiftt^ 4lS}in^ on a fair day, 
A publisher . who specialized in them once 
registered one' hundred and" twenty-three of 
them at one time. As for pamphlets, any oc- ' 
casion would suffice to spawn them; and if the 
matter wcje libellous, there needed no oc^ 

^ipto^ver to persuade the publisher H 
li'^^fHtJiyl^d prove a paying investment. The 
more" "fat and pepper in the rtose" the quicker 
and bigger the sale. 

The competition being great for the racier 
of the pamphlets, they paid very well. "Forty 
shillings!" says a 'wit in a fictitious dialogue 
with a publisher who had offered him this 
amount for a promising libel, "A fit reward for 
one of your rheumatic poets! But as fqr me, 
I'll be paid dear for the very dregs of my wit,". 
Gentlemen of the Sidney type would have had 
reason enough in the latter days of Elizabeth 
for wishing to hold aloof from dealings with 
publishers, since writing had become a rather 
unsavory trade; nevertheless, now for the 
first time many people were living by it, and if 
the be^ of these endured privations it was for 
some other reason than because they wfere not 
paid enough to escape them. There was 
abundant though it may be irregular, demand 
for successful pamphleteers; and Nashe wrote 
of Green — both professional literary men — 
that the work of a day and 'a night sufficed to 
turn out a -pamphlet. For the ordinary 
pamphlet ^ publisher paid two pounds or even 
more. That is to say, Nashe, who turned out 
some of the most highly;-spiced and, therefore, 
highly-priced of these pamphlets and pleaded 
his poverty as excuse for the most scandalous 
of them, received for the work of a day and a 
night the entire yearly salary of the town 
clerk of Ripon. 

Besides writing pamphlets and ballads to 
eke out the proceeds of his more serious 
labors, the hack-writer could do translating. 
This was generally poorly paid work, as it is 
now, but still it was something steadily coming 
in; for translations were always published. 
With them the writer had often, as in the 
earlier uiays, to content himself with copies as 
payment. In the later Jacobean days, news- 
sheets began to be issued in London and the 
translation of foreign ones . offered another 
small and steady source of income to the pro- 
fessional writer. 


There was much hack-writing for the 
theatres also. Plays were constantly being re- 
vived and, in a time when theatrical fashions 
changed and theatrical education grew over- 
night, constantly altered for the revivals. The 
jobs of revision and addition bore a relation 
to the popuFarity of the playwright, but thfc 
regular fee for a prologue and epilogue was 
five shillings. 

The highest price which we know any man- 
ager to have paid for a play is twenty-five 
pounds, but from six to ten seems to have 
been the usual price. Sometimes, too, the 
.uithor had a bonus for .the first night; and 
there is reason to believe that in certain cases 
and possibly regularly, he had a benefit on 
one of the following nights. The sale of plays 
fo publishers sccms in later years to have be- 
come an established part of the business of 
writing and producing them. Atthe customary 
price of sixpence a copy, the, royalty on a 
popular play uhlch went through several 

editions must have been considerable, even if 
it had to be divided between author and ma--- 
ager. This is very likely, since managers s»»oa 
got to selling plays in the theatre itself. Tor 
a spectator to carry a book to the show was 
a c6mmon occurrence. When the play was 
published, too, the author could always 
make forty shillings more by dedicating it \o 
some theatre-loving patron. As for being out 
of pocket for the running expenses of his pro- 
fession, he hiad--r^,ivfMJwadays— -free"''^;|iiteS|#H

account five shilling's worth of "good cheer" 
consumed at an author*s reading in the "Sun" * 
in _ New Fish Street, and at "The Tavern" 
they had two shilling's worth of wine, and 
Shakespeare, of course made the bulk 
of his money as sharing-actor not as 
playwright. Mr. Wallace calculates that 
his yearly profits at the Globe alone ran 
as high as three hundred pounds, while Collier 
estimates his income in 1608 at four hundred 
pounds. '

, To say "Think before you eat" sounds 
something like "Look before you leap," and 
there is really just as much reason for one as 
for the other, according to many authorities' 
who have long studied mankinrd to learn when 
they were capable of their best thinking. 

If a man Is dependent upon his life work 
by means of his thinking, it is just as important 
thai he should choose that time when he is 
best qualified to think, as it is important that 
he $1iouI(l look before he crosses a street. 

Morning, before breakfast, is said to ^e 
the very best time for thinking. There are 
always exceptions. Then again, there are 
many who declare they can think better at 
night, who perhaps never tried the experiment 
of; giving. serious thoughts to anything before 

. > 'Awn who employ thousands of operatives, 
Clerks and such people are agreed that their 
etAplpyj^ .iuroduce a great deal more work 
during ihe hour before they go to lunch than 
they^do during the hour right after lunch. 

Of course, the reason for this is quite nat- 
ural. The food taken into the stomach calls 
upon the blood to help do its share in the w-ork 
of digestion, and this leaves less blood in the 
brain. When all the blood goes from the 
brain, or nearly all, a person becomes un- 
conscious; that is, utterly unable to think at all 
in any degree. Consequently it is only logic 
to claim that anything that takes the blood 
from the brain detracts just so much from one's 
thinking capacity. 

Probably the majority of novelists do the 
best part of their work in the morning. Many 
of them take a very light breakfast, a cup of 
mild coffee and some toast, and then write four 
or five hours. After that they take a hearty 
meal and devote the remainder of the day to 
play; that is, to idleness or exercise of motor- 
ing, or anything that amuses them, but does 
not call for brain concentration. 

A great many business men have a habit 
of dictating all their letters the first thing upon 
entering their otTice in the morning. Other 
letters that come through, the day are un- 
an.swered except in cases of necessity, until the 
next morning. In this manner these men are 
able to think clearly and concisely and quickly 
in the morning and dictate much better letters, 
letters that are clearer ancf of more value to 
the business man. 

After a big dinner, a specially hearty meal, 
we feel dull, and heavy. Feeling like that we 
are certainly not as brilliant, mentally, as we 
were before eating.

- There are as many ways to catch trout as 
there are to court sweethearts, and all of them 
are just as uncertain. A fellow who invents 
a sure method for landing either will achieve 
distinction on the run and in biggest capitals. 
I once met a grizzled old potterer on a 
Prince Edward Island river in Canada. He 
boasted a broad-tailed, pot-bellied first settler 
that must have weighed not less than five 

"What did he take?" 1 asked, glancing 

from the fish into the shifty eyes of the angler. 

"Take? Why I took him!"4^i^„i* 

"But what fly?" I pursued. *"'■*''''' 

For a moment there fell the impressive 

silence of a congressional grilling committee 

when a multimillionaire has been soaked a 

leading questroilf^'The fisherman shook his 

head sadly, as one who has been asked 

another the conundrum of commerce. 

"Say, young man," he said slowly, "1 
yer ever ask no such questions when yer are 
so, far from home and papa. Take it from 
yer uncle, there's ways and ways of catchin' 
trout — and all ways is handy. Now, this old 
sport was chasin' black ants up a dead willow; 
he squealed something awful when I lifted him 
down. And if that ain't dry fly fishin', young 
feller, nothin' in this world of sin is." 

1 had my suspicions then and I have them 
yet about the legitimate lifting of that fish, 
but my mouth is sealed. People take fishing 
journals even down in the distant and wonder- 
ful island of Prince Edward. And I may go 
there again; who knows? And it is a long 
ways, indeed, from home a.nd papa. 

Personally, 1 never knew a trout to chase 
ants up the streamside willows, but then I 
never yet have caught a five-pounder, and 
when they attain that age perhaps they take 
such chances. But trout will take flies at the 
bottom, in middle water, near the top, on the 
top, and even, mark you, at a considerable 
distance above the surface — if the latter isn't 
a dry fly, it would be hard to conceive of a 

On such streams as the chalk rivers of 
England and on portions of American waters, 
there is no doubt that for the most part, par- 
ticularly during the early season, the dry fly, 
presented in the conventional dry-fly fashion, 
will raise fish when other modes are almost 
useless. But the fisherman who depends for 
his successes upon such dry methods alone is 
a good deal in the position of a hunter who 
uses one breed of gun for. wild duck, clay 
pigeons and grizzly bears. There are times 
when dry flies will take very few trout, just 
as there are times when feeding fish will slap 
on the surface eagerly after the natural insect 
and will have naught of anything made by the 
hand of man. 

Native trout, fontinalis, but more fre- 
quently the brown trout, fario, on midsummer 
days, after the first wild enthusiasm for sur- 
face feed is over, sometimes rise so quietly 
that they hardly break the water. Watching a 
shimmering pool in a hot afternoon, the angler 
will see here and there little dimples, as if min- 
nows were feeding on gnats, if the water 
is tenanted by big brown trout and the time 
is July or August, it can be considered a safe 
bet that the supposed minnows have pretty 
broad tails and particularly sharp teeth. Then 
is the place and hour for the "semi-dry fly." 
Almost any small fly, if not tied in the con- 
ventional dry-fly way, will prove effective, 
provided that the fly is one that the fish are 
taking. The latter can only be decided by end- 
less experimentation. For instance; last sea- 
son, on the Neversink River, in the State of 
New York, during the latter part of July, a 
"Soldier Palmer" proved very alluring, al- 
though the anglers who fish that bright water 
for years have considered red hackles, 
"Soldier Palmers," as almost useless. But with 

that hackle 1 took on that river a ten-pound 
creel (legal limit) of splendid trout, the 
largest, a fario, of nineteen inches in length-^— 
and those fortunate fishermen familiar with 
the water will agree that the fish was a big 

Most of the sixteen fish of that fortunate 
day were taken just when the fly had begun 
to sink below the surface, and most of the 
rises, productive and disappointing, were as 
secretive and as little to be noticed as the act 
a street gamin who appropriates the "wipe" 
)m the hind pocket of an old gent.

sMI?^i4i|^jfifomptly as a kingfisher makes his 
dive! But with the use of the semi-dry fly 
no such celerity is necessary or even advisable, 
provided the trout absorbs the lure just as it is 
sinking, as is usually the case at the season re- 
ferred to — July and August. 

When fish are rising after this manner, 
gently plucking at the surface may seem to 
be somewhat sluggish, as if moved by 
curiosity rather than by vigorous appetite. And 
on such sleepy occasions the fisherman of 
rather slow movements has a better chance 
than his more nervous and active brother. But, 
of course, too much delay is absolutely fatal; 
a trout will eject a fly with a certain quality 
of promptitude at all times and under all con- 
ditions. ^ 

One advantage of the use of the quickly 
sinking dry fly is that it is very effective, not 
only on the long, flat waters of a stream and 
over the pool?, but also in the more rapid por- 
tions. Indeed, it is frequently on the riffs, or 
rapids, of: a river that the semi-dry fly is most 
effective. But to use this lure successfully 
over pools or on the quick waters the fisher- 
man should at all times pursue his quarry 
against the current. 

As the upstream, mode is the ordinary 
mode practised in dry-fly fishing, anglers have 
been pretty well pinked as to the advantages 
of "up the water" fishing with the scatter- 
guns of fishing authors. At the risk of hitting 
in the same place twice, I will give a few hints, 
intended for the angling amateur rather than 
his professional brother, concerning this "up 
the water" fishing, but applying the principle 
more particularly to the semi-dry fly. 

The rod for the use of the semi dry fly 
need not be different from an ordinary fly 
rod, if it is adapted to the waters where it is 
to be used. The slight additional strain due 
to whipping the flies two or three times before 
casting does not make it important, as in the 
use of the conventional dry fly, to have a rod 
of unusual construction. 

The equipment, generally, can be that 
ordinarily used for fly fishing. On such 
waters as the smallest rivers of Lower New 
York State, where fish run from a few ounces 
to, say, a couple of pounds as the limit of 
size, an eight and one-half to a nine-foot split 
bamboo, weighing from three and one-half to 
five ounces, is about the thing. The reel 
should be a double clipk reel (single action) 
and should hold thirty to forty yards of en- 
ameled silk fly line; the latter in size and 
weight proportional to the weight and action 
of the rod. The leaders should be of fine, 
round gut. seven to eigb^ feel in length. The 
use of deer fat or any other preparation for 
keeping leaders afloat is not recommended. 

I will suppose that the fisherman can make 
a tolerably clean cast of from thirty to forty 
feet and that he has achieved, at least^to a de- 
gree, the ability to float his flies, as it were, 
through the air to the water. Slapping the 
surface is futile. 1 will also suppose that Mr. 
Novice has chosen his position at the water- 
side and that he has a mile or more of fish- 
able water upstream for his efforts. 

The angler is to wade in, taking pains to 
avoid splashings, and turning his face toward 
the source of the river, begin his casting directly 
up the water, or diagonally across. If he be- 
gins on a riff, he should use a line not more 
than twenty-five feet long, measuring from 
stretcher /ly to the reel. 

Between actual casts on the water the 
angler slipuld flick his line back and forth in 
the air over his head twice, or, at the most* 
three times. The flies should then be pro- 
pelled forward and allowed to sink gently to 
the surface. They will float for an instant and 
then sink. It is at this moment of sinking 
that in the late angling seaton the lure is 
sneakingly approp^^iated, fi*.*!, as has been 

said, hardly a wrinkling of the surface to show 
that a trout has made connections. 

Gradually the angler works his way up- 
stream. The little eddies below the sedgy 
grasses at the margins should have quiet and 
careful attention. So should those glassy 
places just at the meeting of the currents be- 
hind the nubbins of protruding rocks. Here 
and there will be found turbulent potholes, 
foam-flecked. If the fly is managed correctly 
it may bring the big fish of the day from such 
a lurking place. But the big fellow will lake 
the fly as stealthily as a brood of young pat- 
ridges sneak into the brush. In June the 
broad-tail would have splashed like the oar of 
a picnicking giil, bul late in the season he looks 
upon foraging for dinner as a conspiracy. 

When the head of the riff is gained^^ - 
fisherman will ascend to a critical place.' 'ft

some ten yards when the familiar sound is 
heard, and a second or two later I pick up the 
first snipe of the season and throw him to the 
coolie with the game stick. 

It is a brilliantly fine day towards the end 
of the rains. Around us stretches a green il- 
limitable sea of rice. Far away to the south 
one can see a belt of palm trees behind which 
the slender golden spire of the Shwe Dagon 
pagoda points upward into the sky. Even at 
that early hour, for it is barely 8 o'clock, the 
sun is blazing as it only can in the tropics, 
and we realize we aje in for a hot day. Even 
the heat, however, has its advantages, as the 
snipe lie better, and as 1 wade through a deep-

hope for a correspondingly heavy game sticky

bly as not he will be fast to a big "German

When once fairly within the pool let the 
angler watch for the dimples of rising fish. 
Of course, chub make same dimples as 
well as trout. But it is good practice to catch 
every fish that can be induced to rise, so take 
what can be got and be thankful for anything. 

Before the head of the pool is reached it 
is not unlikely that the fisherman will be re- 
quired, because of the increasing depth of the 
water, to take to the shallows of the edges on 
one side or the other. To fish upstream he 
will be compelled to cast his flies diagonally. 
He should allow the line to drift down until 
almost opposite and then chance his next cast, 
always flicking his flies back and forth a 
couple of times in the air. 

So will go the day, with its attempts, 
failures and triumphs. It is laborious., to wade 
against the current of a swift river, but eveij 
aside from the .better chances for sport of 
this method the^e is something about it that is 
particularly exhilarating. It is almost as if 
the angler were a fish himself and the water 
rushing down upon him w^ere his natural home. 
Then his rocky path is purer and cleaner than 
ordinary paths; it is certainly free from dust. 
Indeed, it is not sacrilege to say of a mountain 
trout river, "Her ways are ways of pleasant- 
ness and all her paths are peace." There is 
nothing quite so good as wading a trout stream, 
and should some fellow make a corner in fish- 
ing — which dire event may the river gods for- 
bid! — but should 1 not be in on the deal, I've 
already decided what 1 shall do: l"m going 
to borrow or steal an aeroplane, go to JV\ars 
and try her canals. — Ladd Plumley in Outing.

The hills fade behind us, amorphous in the 
black gloom of the night. A brief interlude, 
and the smoke whorls merge into the misty 
twilight darkness of a cold weather dawn in 
Northern India, whilst the gl§w from my pipe 
reddens into the murky, rufous glare of straw 
bonfires. Men are flitting to and rro, and 
there is a seemingly confused medley of tents 
and bubbling camels, kicking mules, and 
patient, not to say stolid, bullocks, workman- 
like army transport carts cheek by jowl with 
clumpsy country vehicles. It is the orderly 
chaos of a British regiment on the march dur- 
ing the hour between reveille and fall-in. The 
regiment was moving by road from Umballa 
to Meerut a few days before Christmas, and 
reveille having sounded before dawn, we reach 

The going is heavy, and I am glad of the.M^^; '"' oyr new camping ground before mid-day. My 

"Scape, scape" — what scenes the sounds 
bring back, as 1 sit dreamily before the fire on 
a cold Winter night, watching the smoke from 
my pipe curling up and framing a series ot 
tableaux vivants; conjuring up days long past, 
and the cheery faces of many an old friend. 

The years slip away, and again I am one 
of a dozen or more guns crowding into a first- 
class carriage on the narrow gauge Burma rail- 
way in the early morning at Rangoon. Word 
has come that the snipe are in, and as the 
train slowly puffs out of the station 'we settle 
ourselves down for the short journey which 
takes us through the outskirts of the town into 
the vast paddy fields of Lower Burma. Each 
pair or trio of us has its own particular spot, 
remembered from past seasons; perhaps 
along the banks of a muddy creek, or perhaps 
a kind of oasis, amidst the cultivated rice 
lands, of coarse grass and rushes, over which 
the water is not lying so deep as over the sur- 
rounding country. As the train rattles past a 
little Burmese village of thatched houses 
raised on piles some sleepy-looking water buf- 
faloes throw back their SAveeping horns and 
raise their long heads to gaze^ at us, calling 
forth an amused chuckle as we recollect how 
one of our number had the previous year been 
chased by a small herd of these animals. 
Forced to take refuge in a tree, he perched 
there uncomfortably and precariously for a 
couple of hours or more, to be eventually 
rescued by a naked Burmese urchin of about 
six years old, who, strolling up smoking a 
huge green cheroot almost as big as himself, 
smote the biggest buffalo over the nose with 
a long bamboo, and, clambering on to its 
shoulders, unconcernedly rode off, driving the 
remainder of the herd before him. 

My companion and 1 leave the train at the 
third stop, and, hiring a couple of coolies 
apiece to carry spare cartridges and game sticks 
and directing another with the tiffin basket to 
meet us under a big tree three or four miles 
distant, we form line to walk over some 

[y company tents pitched, the men set- 

i|-^ife in, and reporting all correct, I find him 

awaiting me. He tells me of a jheel only some

the mess sergeant. An houi 's halt and 1* 'W^^w has a background of the wooded Siwaliks, 

off once more. The birds have been fairly^^ia 
plentiful, but we hope for still better things as '^ 
we make for a well-remembered patch. Only 
a small field some sixty yards or so square — 
it is fairly alive with snipe, and we soon have 
to call a halt as each of us has some five or 
six birds down, whilst our guns are so hot that 
we have to take them to pieces and cool the 
barrels In the water. We get between fifteen 
and twenty couple off that small patch alone, 
and then, as it is getting late, set our facs 
towards the station. We are still some dis- 
tance off when we see the smoke of the ap- 
proaching train, but the stationmaster, being a 
Burman, is a sportsman, and we can count on 
five or ten minutes' grace. 

The scene changes. Instead of a first- 
class railway carriage in a setting of green rice 
fields, a two-wheeled bazaar tonga materializes 
in the drifting smoke. A friend is beside me, 
and we are clinging for dear life to the rail 
of the back seat as we bump at a gallop over 
a "kacha" road on the outskirts of a big can- 
tonment not many miles east of the Marghalla 
Pass, famous for its memories of John 
Nicholson and of his defence in 1848, when 
with Jt (tw hastily-raised levies he held it 
against an army of Sikh insurgents. Our 
thoughts, however, are of sport and not of war, 
or rumors of war. as we rattle along. At 
length, having by a bare two inches escaped 
destruction in a yawning chasm, we arrive at 
a small village perched on the bank of a big 
nullah, which here widens to about a thousand 
yards. The jheel lies in a. semi-circle of hills 
over which towers the giant Pir Punjal, telling 
of Kashmir and its joys, and is situated' on 
either side of a small stream flowing over a 
wide boulder-strewn bed. and is chiefly re- 
markable for the fact that, no matter how 
often it is shot, it always seems to hold a few 
couple of snipe. And shot over it certainly is, 
for barely a day passes from the latter half 
of October to March but one or two guns are 
tramping through its holding mud in pursuit of 
the long bills, whilst a month or so later the 
adjoining fields are being beaten for quail. 
Tons of ^cad must be lying in its depths in the 
shape of No. '8 shot. As may bg imagined, its 
denizens are cunning birds, and long shots are 
the order of the day. Sometimes a few teal 
may be found here, and on one occasion a 
gallant major of the Queen's returned tri- 
umphantly with a couple of bar-headed geese 
he had managed to knock over out of a flock 
that had unwarily approached a tree beneath 
which he had hastily taken cover (his own 
expression being that he had run like a hare 
for a couple of hundred yards, and that he was 
not so slim as he had been twenty years 
earlier). Such incidents are, however, rare, 
and today my friend and I are quite satisfied 
when we manage to secure eight couple, out 
of which only six are jacks. 

We start on the smaller section of the jheel, 
which lies on the near bank ;of the stream, 
and have walked perhaps some fifty yards 
when a wisp gets up, and we each manage to 
secure a bird, though the contents of our left 
barrels hurtle fruitlessly through the air. We 
stand and watch the remaining snipe circling 
higher and higher into the sky. till they finally 
dart across' the nullah and disappear in the dis- 
tance; but since we know we shall meet our 
friends again on the other side of the stream, 
we proceed On our way philosophically, pick* 
ing up a bird here and there, as we flounder 
along. Shots are few and far between, and 
the sport would seem poor tp one accustofll^ed 
to Burma or Lower Bengal, or the Wg[ jhf«b

h a faint white streak in the dim distance, 
making us doubtful if what we see are snowy 
peaks or merely a few fleecy clouds resting 
on the intervening hills. Our road lies be- 
tween groves of mango trees or widespreading 
pipal, whilst on either hand the fields are 
covcired with patches of sugar cane or the green 
of the coming Spring crops. We find the 
shikari waiting for us at a point where we turn 
off the road, and, crossing a rise, see the coun- 
try before us dotted with pools of water inter- 
spersed with rushes and tall grass. About 
three-quarters of a mile away vegetation 
ceases on the edge of a fair-sized pond, from 
which, at the sound of the first shot, three or 
four detachments of duck spring into the air 
with protesting quacks, and after one or two 
circling flights wing their way to safer 

The jheel is many miles distant from the 
line of railway or from any big station, so is 
seldom disturbed except by some civil officer 
on t9ur. It extends for a mile and a half or 
two miles, and is perhaps 800 yards broad at 
its widest part. The going is on the easy side, 
and the birds are lying well, getting up singly 
or in pairs at about twenty-five yards. By way 
of variety now and a'gain we flush a jack, or 
a quail whirrs about almost from under our 
feet. In one spot we put up some half-dozen 
painted snipe; handsome birds, but affording 
little sport, as they lie till nearly trodden on, 
and fly straight and slow, whilst from a table 
point of view they are most insipid. We work 
slowly round the jheel, and towards dusk 
secrete ourselves in the long reeds near the 
open water, as the shikari tells us that the duck 
driven off in the earlier part of the afternoon, 
may probably come back. He proves a true 
prophet, and we manage to knock over half 
a dozen mallard and gadwall. But it is get- 
ling dark, and with the dark decidedly cold, 
so we make our way out of the jheel and back 
to our ponies. On examination we find our 
bag to total rather over sixty head, of which 
twenty odd couple are full snipe, and as we 
jog back to camp by the light of a crescent 
moon we feel thoroughly satisfied with our 
afternoon's sport. 

I wake with a shiver to find that in my 
reverie I have let my fire die down and that 
the cold is no dream, so make my way to bed, 
my mind still a confused medley, over which 
India, with her sunlit skies and gorgeous coU 
oring, holds sway. As I slip between the 
sheets pictures of sport amidst the jheels and 
jungles of the East crowd thick upon each 
other, fragmentary and kaleidoscopic, till in a 
dreamless sleep 1 remember vuo more.-— E. F.

Taking the above term to be used towards 
!ife, it is certainly a terrible thought that 
countless numbers of lives are hopelessly 
handicapped by parentage, example, environ- 
ment and poverty, so hopelessly that it must 
seem almost useless to attempt to make even 
a start in the race of life. 

And iiesides these sad legions there are also 
the pitiable masses of those born with the 
severe handicap of some physical def(5rmlty or 

It is consoling to think of the splendid ef- 
forts made now-a-days to surmount or evade 
the terrible penalties, with which such 
thousands are born into this world. ^^^Hp

And this reminds us of that wonderful of 
all wonderful girls, of whom we have all lately 
read, and whose marvelous self-evolution frotil 
a blind, deaf and dumb and handles^ child- 
hood to a very highly-educated girl has chal- 
lenged and received the admiration of the 
whole thinking world. 

Well! It is a big drop from so sublime a 
"handicap fight" as this to the minor life's 
hariTrcaps with which we are all more 
familiar; yet which, if one is of "fighting" 
make there if — when once recognized — a cer- 
tain fierce joy in subduing. 

Take, for-instance, the very common 
handicap (in the race for popularity) of be- 
ing a "bad listener." • 

Now, most of us like to talk, and all of 
us like to be listened to — nor can any think- 
ing person deny the joy of a "listener" who 
is interested. 

Even a pugnacious "Oh! do you think so? 
I can't agree t"o that!" is refreshing after a 
spell of rapid minute-guns of "really?" "of 
course," "how funny!" etc. 

Personally, 1 feel a really genuine interest 
in nearly everyone 1 meet. 1 enjoy learning 
their tastes and, later on, am touched and 
pleased when they unfold to me their joys and 
cnli^st my sympathy, which they imply will 
help them in their distresses. 

Believe me, reader m'ine, the first time any- 
one says "1 felt 1 must tell you, I knew you 
would be sorry" (or glad, as the case may be) 
one has received a' guerdon which no money 
can buy. 

Another handicap, often very bravely 
borne, is that of insufficient means, yet some- 
times a woman, whose annual income would 
not buy the $1,500 sable stole and muff that 
Lady Gorgius' Midas calls a bargain, will have 
in her personality and general effect some- 
thing far more individual and even dis-' 
tinguished than her newly-made ladyship can 
ever hope to attain to. 

The rooms of such women; too — even 
though there is nothing of special value in 
them — have the same charm. 

Life's handicap may, too, fall in deeper 
ways: In anxieties, bravely borne; in Secret 
sorrows weighing down the soul for some dear 
errant one (how one's heart aches as the 
"halfpenny" press rakes in one after another 
of these "skeleton cupboards" when the 
. dreaded tragedy has at last happened!); and 
just as the most heavily-handicapped horse 
may win the race, who can foretell the ulti- 
mate reward of such afflicted nie'n and

ing that the wrap-coat follows the general 
direction and does not invariably hang in the 
straight lines we have heretofore associated 
with it. The most simple arrangement is for 
the right-hand of the coat to fasten well over 
to the left-hand side with two or three folds 
of the material breaking the monotony of the 
front. A suspicion of pannier drapery, also, 
is very noticeable, the coat shaping outwards 
towards either side, and then being caught in 
again to the figure by a hem of lace, em- 
. broidery, or of the. material itself. 

Many wrap-coats again are composed of 
two materials, the yoke and sleeves being of 
one, the remainder of the other. Shantung 
and foulard are delightful when combined in 
this way, especially when the shantung is 
dyed to the color of the foulard, or the 
foulard follows the tones of the natural shan- 
tung. A very beautiful coat has just been

My Best Friend, — It is not a moment too 
icon to consider the matter of the Summer 
wrap coat^ for the vagaries of our climate are 
such that a garment of this description is a 
positive necessity. There is bound to be many 
and many a day whqji a dainty Summer 
toilet is not sufficient protection by itself, but 
needs the services of the additional coat, and 
there is no reason at all why this should "not be 
a ^j'retty as well as serviceable production. 

The bare, name of "wrap-coat" used to 
conjure up a somewhat sack-like garment over 
every inch of which utility and naught else 
was written, but this is far from fitting the 
case in this year of grace 1913. Indeed, the'' 
contrary proclaims itself in every line of the 
model wraps now being displayed to an ap- 
preciative public. They are modelled and de- 
signed by a master hand, and in many instances 
show the same amount of drapery as the 
dresses. This vogue for draping has grown to 
such a pitch that it is almost a matter of wonder 
as to how or when it will stop. Well-nigh 
everything we don is draped to some extent, 
even the strictest of tailor-m«des frequently 
encouraging a slight mouvement to the left- 
hand side of the skirt. ^ 

Things being as they are, tt is not amaz-

A very pretty wrap-coat can iJife'limr^. 
!i f^l^^^c*-"^ ninon, this corresponding in hue to 
Hie gown it accompanies. The amount of 
warmth a ninon coat will give is quite amaz- 
ing, this being out of all proportion to the 
thickness of the material. These ninon coats, 
as a rule, are finished with some very effective 
embroidery, and if this be hand-worked, so 
much the better. It can decorate the sleeves 
and be brought in a wide band across the back 
of the coat, at the foot, from side seam to 
side seam, very prettily. Then, again, these 
coats of chiffon or ninon are sometimes lined 
with chiffon of a contrasting hue, and very 
well they look." A dark blue coat can be 
lined with Imperial purple, or green with 
bronze-gold, while grey and rose color are al- 
ways charming together. A tew of the new. 
coats from Paris are edged around the neck 
and front with a narrow kilted frill of lisse, 
and this lends an extremely dainty touch, the 
frilling falling inward, and giving in fact, an 
additional border to the coat. 

Quite apart from the question of the wrap- 
coat from the wrap point of view alone, there 
are its duties as a dust coat, Vi^hen travel- 
ing, motoring, or driving a dust coat is es- 
sential in the warmest weather if a pretty 
gown be worn which must be guarded from 
possible damage. Every woman who attends 
a long succession of garden parties throughout 
the Summer will appreciate the truth of this. 
She knows that when journeying to and fro 
from various festivities a light protective wrap 
is of the first importance. Natural-colored 
shantung and tussore have always been first 
favorites in this connection, because, by very 
reason of their coloring, they do not show the 

Beaded evening coats are the rage of the 
hour. Sometimes the beads cover tlie entire 
surface, sometimes they are worked into pat- 
terns, more or less elaborate, occasionally they 
form bands of beaded trimming. Materials 
of various substances are treated in this way, 
but the more diaphanous kinds are perhaps 
the better received, such as ninon, chiffon, 
marquisette, or mousseline de soie. Follow- 
ifvg hard upon the beaded fabrics for popu- 
larity are brocaded materials of, every variety 
— crepe de chine, bengaline. charmeuse, and 
sor forth, while for the matron there are some 
charming opera wraps of moire in great choice 
of lovely colorings. 

Some of the new corded silks can be com- 
mended to the notice of the young girl, who 
■will find a kimono wrap of this description 
easy to achieve or cheajt to buy. Every coat 
should be drawn in somewhat tightly round 
the feet if the approved silhouette is to be 
given, but nearly all the ready-made coats fol- 
low this outline with fidelity. Those fortunate 
people who possess an antique Indian shawl 
can make a very fascinating evening wrap 
through its good services. The sh<awl should 
be folded three-cornerwise, one point at the 
back hanging lower than the other, the shawl 
bein^ joined together bCneath the arms, thus 
forming kimono sleeves. 

in spite of all we were told by the fashion 
Writers as to the day -of the tight skirt being 
over, it certainly is" not, as anyone who goes 
about at all and notices what smart women 
are wearing can quite well see for "herself. 

Skirts continue to be narrow at the ankles 
but one can retain this effect and still have 
comparative ease in walking. This is done by 
draping the skirt so as to give fullness at the 
knees and then. Introducing foot pleats at the 
hem. But the iijdepcndcncc of English wom<in 
is indicated by the fact that every tailor is 
making a fair propor5;ion of skirts which are 
practical ly without drapery and are'of moderate 
width. The idea that In order to walk easily 
one must have a very wide »kirt is quite wrong

From crown to heel the Irimness of •this 
costume p.-oclaims it designed to be traveled 
in. The white linen collar and the cuffs, sup- 
plemented by the mannish blouse cuffs, are 
entirelj in keeping with the almost military 
severity. The black sailor hat is bound about 
the crown with a moire ribbon, bowed at the 
back. At the front a fancy white feather is 
thrown into clever relief against a wide black 
'. t 

of average length and does not necessitate 
superfluous material in which to become en- 
tangled. If one wants more room it-may be • 
comforting to remember that groups of side 
pleats are introd-uced in many of the Paris 
models. English women, however, though' 
they admit that thesfe pleats give ease in walk- 
ing, do not seem inclined to accept them to 
any great extent, except for short chiffon 
skirts. These are generally made of solid side 
pleating, witl; a very narrow undewkirt; so 
narrow in fact that it is absolutely necessary 
to have it slashed. 

Long Russian blouses of chiffon or crepe 
are being shown with many models. These 
too are generally side pleated either entirely 
so or simply below the girdle. 

The variation of this style, which 1 saw 
the other day, was an afternoon gown of deep 
shrimp pink crepe de chine. Instead or &eing 
side pleated, the long Russian blouse cr tunic 
was laid in box pleats about an inch in width. 
These were merely pressed, not stitched. In 
place of the usual belt or narrow jjirdle, there 
was a Cheruit sash of the same material as 
the dress.' This was wound round the waist, 
then carried th the back and loosely knotted 
a little at one side about half way to the knees. 

Some of the pleated chiffon skirts have a 
contrasting band of silk around the bottom. 
One in dark blue, for instance, has a ten-inch 
band- of Scot<ih plaid at tllfehem. With this 
skirt a coatee or a Russian Blouse of the plaid 
would be worn. 

Good-bye until next week. I am, ever

Are women finer . physical animals than 
men, in these days? 

- PethapS'they may not be so yet, but as- 
suredly things are tending that wa-y, and it is 
surprising that among so many comments upon 
contdttpcrary men and things so little refer- 

ence should be made to the wonderful im.- 
provement in physique of the new generation 
of girls and young women. 

In every town and village the new type 
of the youn^g girls in their early teens are 
easily recognizable. 

The tall, free-stepping, bright-faced, richly- 
tressed, athletic girl, exuberant in health and 
beauty, and half wild with the joy of living. 

Some people would have us believe that 
this new charm and vigor of physiofue is mere- 
ly the impression of a new and piquant fashion 
in feminine attire — the delightful current mode, 
with its trim and unadorned jacket and skirt 
to which the Horation "simplex munditus" 
exactly applies, and which well deserves the 
recent commendations of the German Emperor. 
I do not underrate the effect of this pretty 
fa.shion, which is admirably adapted to the 
youthful figure; But these subtly-simple cos- 
tumes, these dainty stockings and fastidious 
chassures are only symptoms the more of that 
;w "joie de vivre" which is so characteristic

But the beauty of the prevailing fashions

Enquiry will elicit the testimony to the 
larger measurements as compared with ten or 
twenty years ago. 

The average sizes in ready-made articles 
have, I am told, considerably altered. It is a 
positive physical developjnent that has taken 
place, and one would like to know the cause of 

Some tell us that the open-air pursuits 
which some years ago began to be so popular 
with the female sex are now beginning to 
make their effect visible. Especial credit is 
given to the bicycle for the evolution of this 
splendicf physical type of young woman. 
Others again — and this is perhaps the deepest 
and truest because the least obvious interpreta- 
tion — are inclined to attribute the physical 
mainly to spiritual and psychological changes. 
The vastly-enlarged interests and variety 
of life, the modification of old-fashioned aus- 
terities in morals and religion, the new resolve 
to make the most of this present life, a grow- 
ing admiration for original and personal qual- 
ities of strength and beauty and the ability to 
do things — as distinct from the old claim of 
heredity and wealth — -all this is beginning to 
manifest itself in the physical attributes, of the 
rising generatioti, especially in the middle 

This Zeit-geist* appears to be rather neglect- 
ing boys and young men. No -great corres- 
ponding improvement in physique is notice- 
able in these. One may often see a young 
couple, brother and sister, or sweethearts — 
of whom the girl is obviously much the finer 
creature, physically, of the two. 

Is the feminine destined to outstrip the 
masculine human being in physical strength 
and aptitude? 

Is the woman going to assert a dominion 
over the man such as the female cirriped and 
mantes and spider exercise over their mates? 
Is the time coming when the present 
aspirations of the suffragettes will seem to have 
been moderate indeed?

Although it would b*e quite easy to give a 
salad alphabet, such as artichoke beetroot, 
crab, fish, German, ham, Italian, etc., salads 
really are of only two kinds, simple and com- 
pound. Great carejs necessary in their 
preparation, and a few rules must be observed 
if they are to be a success. 

Vegetables must be young and freshly cut, 
preferably in the early morning, before the 
sun has made them Jimp; they then be 
kept in a cool place, or their roots pvit in a 
little told water. Green vegetables, such as 
lettuces, must be washed in col3 water, pulled 
into small pieces, and these put in a basket to 
drain in. a cold place, so as to keep them per- 
fectly crisp, or put in a clean, dry cloth, this 
being held by the four cornets and lightly 
shaken. • 

• A salad should not have its final njixlng 
till the last moment before serving. It im- 
proves a simple salad to mix the dressing in 
a basin, then add thi vegetable, and stir it 
lightly with two forks or spooos before lifting 
it into the salad bowl. 

. It is a mistake to put onions in a salad ex- 
cept for people who have a great liking for 
them. Few object to the slight flavor given 
by the salad bowl being rubbed wjth a cut 
onion. Avoid using too much vinegar in any 
kind of salad. Let the oil be of the best and 
purest, such as Provence or LuCca. 

the usual French dressing Is easy enough 
to make, but mayonnaise may be troublesome 
unless the oil is added drop by drop, the saute 
being stirred evenly in one dlrectioti aU , the 
time. When more than one vcgetabje is used 
in a compound satod, they should be prepared 

_ ^j ' ■., f .r' "' ■ ■ 

separately, and arranged in separate heaps on 
a disii, or in layers in a salad bowl. 

For a compound salad, meat, fish, or eggs 
cau be used, in fact, a salad may be made from 
everything in the garden, and from nearly 
all that is in the larder. 

Tomato Salad — Take some tomatoes that 
are firm and not over-ripe, dip them in hot 
water, then into cold, and slice them, putting 
the slices on a flat dish. Sprinkle them with 
a little castor sugar, French dressing and 
chopped parsley. Then arrange them in a 
deep dish or shallow bowl, and put a border 
of cooked haricot beans, similarly seasoned, 
round the edge. For the dressing, put an 
eggspoonful of salt and one of black pepper 
in a small basin, add a tablespoonful of tar- 
ragon vinegar and two of good salad oil, mix 
well, and use. The parsley will sprinkle nice- 
ly if, after it is finely chopped, it is put in the 
corner of a clean cloth, twisted up and dipped 
several times in cold water before wringing it 
dry. This removes the bitter flavor and makes 
the parsley a good color. 

Artichoke Salads — Take some cooki 
artichoke bottol5,.j^|fe;jftEined ones will d<^ 
drain them,-:.''^^^^^^^thya. few drops of 

pfepper. Flll,j^iiteltyer^''ftie artid 
with some sl^piffeiiimped-out rounds of 
cooked tongue, chicken and cucumber. Set 
these with a little aspic jelly, and just before 
serving, put a small quantity of whipped cream 
that has been nicely flavored with salt, coral- 
line pepper, and tarragon vinegar on the top, 
using a forcing bag and rose-pipe for the pur- 

Vegetable Salad — With av spoon vegetable- 
cutter cut equal quantities of raw, cleaned car- 
rot and turnip, boil these separately till ten- 
der, and drain dry. Peel asimany potatoes a.« 
required, cut them into small squares, 
also French beans into oblong pieces, 
cutting these with a slanted knife. Boil these 
too, also some peas and asparagus heads. 
When all are cooked and^ready, season them 
with French dressing, and arrange them in 
heaps on a flat dish, with a cooked head of 
cauliflower in the centre. Sprinkle this with 
the dressing and chopped , parsley. Serve the 
salad as cold as possible. 

Lobster Salad — Select one or two good 
lobsters, remove the meat from the tail and 
claws as whole as possible, and cut them into 
neat pieces. Arrange these* on a flat tin, and 
sprinkle some with chopped parsley and some 
with dried lobster coral, and mask the pieces 
with a .little liquid aspic jelly. Set aside till 
stiff. Pick all the soft meat (from the lobster, 
and put it in a small basin. Season it with a 
little pepper and salt, and add sufficient 
liquid aspic to make it stiff when cold. Put it 
all into a shallow dish, and when cold, cut it 
into small squares. In a deep dish arrange a 
layer of pulled lettuce that is perfectly dry, 
arrange the prepared lobster in a pile in the 
centre, and garnish with quarters of hard- 
boiled eggs and small tomatoes, nicely 
seasoned, and a little finely-shredded lettuce in 
between. Serve mayonnaise sauce in a sauce 
boat. ■• 

Mayonnaise Sauce — In a mixing-basin put 
two raw yolks of eggs, a saltspoonful of salt 
and white pepper, and a teaspoonful of made 
mustard. Stir them well together, then drop 
in, drop by drop, six ounces of good salad oil, 
stirring all" the time. Add a few drops of 
lemon-juice and tarragon vinegar, also suf- 
ficient thick cream to make it the right con- 

Nut Salad — Prepare equal quantities of 
peeled walnuts, small pieces of cooked chicken 
or turkey, and half the quantity ot celery cut 
into julienne strips. Mix them separately with 
a creamy mayonnaise 'sauce, and arrange in a 
deep dish. Garnish with French peas nicely 

Cherry Salad— ^ome two pounds of white- 
heart cherries, *put them into a pint of cold 
syrup flavored with kirsch and the juice of 
half a lemon. Serve them in champagne 
glasses, with a little whipped cream on the 
top, which would be sweetened and flavored 
with cherry-blossom essence. 

Banana Salad — Peel six bananas and slice 
the'hi, put them into a cold, syrop made by 
boiling together till clear and thtek half a 
pound of lump sugar and a quarter of a pint 
df water. Flavor it with a tablespoonful , of 
raspberry vinegar and a few drops of vanltt^t 
add two or three drops of carmine to make 
the syrup a pretty pink color. Serve at above.

The little town of Estevan, in Saskatchewan, was 
badly injured by a thunder and wind storm on June 
23, The next day a downpour of rain frightened 
people in Vancouver and flooded the basements of sev^

panied the rain. 

Work will soon be commenced on the five-mile tun- 
nel through Rogers Pais. This great engineering 
feat will cost between five and six million dollars, but 
even then the company will find it cheaper as well as 
.safer to bring their trains under the mountains rather 
than climb over them. 

What kind of a club is this that 'they have over in 
the .Moss Street School district? The young people 
have a good time and their mothers and fathers share 
it with them, which is a very good thing. It is very

ing principal and are not afraid or ashamed to say so. 

Smallpox and starvation may put an end to the

these soldiers have left to shift for themselves?

long money will be easier to get. 

Mount McKinley, in Alaska, the highest peak on 
the continent of America, wjs scaled by Archdeacon 
Hudson Stuck, an Episcopal missionary, and three 
companions on .June 7. The mountain is 20,500 feet 
high. The expedition left Fairbanks on March 13. 
Another peak of the same mountain had been reached 
by Thomas Lloyd in 1910. 

In the United States members of Congress are 
busy with the Underwood Tariff Bill, which, when 
passed, will allow everything that poor men use 
to be broijght Into the country either with no duty 
or with much lower duties. This will prevent manu- 
facturers at home from charging extortionate prices 
for the goods they make. 

Australia has a change of Government, but though 
Hon. J. Hume Cook has undertaken the duties of 
Premier, he has only a majority of one. He is a Lib- 
eral and the party opposed to him calls itself the 
Labor party. Australia needs a settled Government. 
and It is to be feared she will not have this while 
parties are so evenly balanced. 

President Poincaire has been welcomed and en-

He represents the French nation, which is Great 
Britain's closest ally. A hundred years ago nothing

The members of the Board of Trade and other 
business men in Victoria want the City Council to 
put up a new exhibition building, so that every one 
may learn how many things are made in Victoria and 
how good they are. Ceftainly, if the city as well as 
the farmers and fruit growers had a part in the Fall 
fair, it would be more interesting. Very few of us 
know all we should about what is made in Victoria. 

At Annapolis, Maryland, the American naval train-

of wind overturned the machine. Ensign Billingsley 
fell out and was, of course, killed. Towers held on 
and when the biplane reached the sea, rescued, 
though h$!>'as badly hurt. This is the first aero-

For the last fortnight the Fifth Regiment has been 
in camp. On Thursday the Fusiliers went into camp 
jct Sidney. Colonel Roy, Jion. Sam Hughes, .Minister 
of Militia, 'afj|d General Sir Ian Hamilton, a veteran of 
the SOtitt^.African war, have been inspecting these 
Victoria volunteers. Tomorrow there will be a sham 
battle. Some of the cadets wiir take part in the 
manoeuvres. Victoria has been attacked, and you 
how" it will be defended if you are on the 
§;!; Not many of us know how thankful we all 
oiight to be that this is all make-believe. 

Mr. Clarence Smith, who has much to do with 
ship-building in England, said the other day that 
there was no good reason why this great industry 
should not be carried on in Canada, and that he be- 
Hevejd Victoria would be a great shipping centre. If 
this visitor is right, there will be many openings for 
'skilled mechanics when schoolboys grow up. In the 
building of modern ships men are needed who can 
calculate and design as well as work. Our new 
technical school will help to turn out such men.. And 
the engineering college in the University will fit others 
for the highest positions. 

The Caiiadian Pacllic Railway Company is send- 
ing surveyors to examine the land on Vancouver Is- 
land' north of Campbell River, and to see wh^ is the 
best route for a continuation of the Island railroad 
to open up the district. Already reports >ihow that 
this part of the Island is rich in timber, minerals and 
agricultural land. C. P. R. men met in Victoria late- 
ly to discuss what Industries could be established in 
Victoria and on the Island so that th'ere would be 
freight to carry on the railroads the company is build- 
ing, and to send away in its big ships.. These friendly 
spies will tell the wealthy manufacturers of other 
places what they have learned. 

The holidays have begun and all except the High 
School students, who must go back on the 7th to. 
write their examinations, are happy. There should 
be a long, happy Summer before the pupils. The 
parks, the beaches and the woods and fields give 
plenty of chance for enjoyment. Don't forget to be 
as helpful as you can to the fathers and mrithers and 
older brothers and sisters, who must work on while 
you are free to enjoy yourselves. They love to see 
you happy, but sometimes they are tired. If ^ou play 
as well as you ought you should go back to school 
ready for a year of hard work. 

Sir Henneker Heaton believes the telegraph com- 
panies are charging too much for cable messages." He 
thinks that telegraph dispatches should be sent to ail 
parts of the world at a penny a word. Many pepple 
say this is a dream. But in these days dreams have 
a way of coming true. Rowland Hill, who seventy 
years ago told people they ought to get letters sent 
to any part of Great Britain for a penny, was laughed 
at, and now letters are sent across continents for a 
penny, and round the world for little more. It is not 
a quarter of a century since all sorts of Jokes were 
made about flying machines, and now they are being 
built by the governments of all countries. The tele- 
phone and the cinematograph are other dreams that 
have come true. We will have the penny cable all 
in grx)d time, unless wireless does away with the 
need for cables. 

Shevket Pasha, who was murdered in T-urkey a

be accomplished so that the country will be honestly 
served and the inen who serve will be fairly paid while 
they work, and provided for when they are too sick 
or ton old to continue their labor. In Canada, as in 
Great Britain, ofticials who do their work well and 
who do not interfere in politics, remain in otiice as 
long as they like, or as they are able to do their 
work. In this great business there must be good 
management. Canada, rich as she is, cannot afford 
to pay idle, useless or dishonest servants, or to em- 
ploy more people than are needed. It is hoped thai 
the report of the commission will bring about reform.

the wicked Sultan, Abdul Hamid. from his throne. 
He was made war minister under the present Sultan 
and set to work with great energy to remodel the 
arjfty. No one knew better than he that he had not 
finished what "he had begun, and he strove with all his 
might first to prevent the war and then to bring 
about peace. He was chosen to attend the council in 
London last January, which failed to come to an 
agreement. He was blamed for the murder ef Nazim 
Pasha, whom he succeeded as Grand Vizier pr^ Prime 
Minister. ' 

The Peace of London, signed in June, I9l3, 
brought to a close the war between Turkey and the 
Balkan Allies, but we do not yet know whether there 
wm be peace in the Balkans. Greece and Servia cap- 
tured in the war a part of Macedonia claimed by Bul- 
garia. Bulgaria wanted to get this back, and there 
has been some fighting. The Czar of Russia in 1912 
made Seirv'ia and Bulgaria promise that if they de- 
feated Turkey and disagreed about conquered terri- 
tory, they must ask him to judge between them. He 
has reminded them of their obligation and offered to 
arbitrate. Neither nation dared defy Russia. Sir Ed- 
Vard Grey, who had greatly helped to bring about 
the Peace of London, has warned the Balkan States 
that if they fight with each other they will forfeit 
the sympathy of the great nations of Europe, and 
that Turkey may win back the possessions she has 
so lately*lost. Still Servians and Bulgarians have not 
laid down their arms. It is not the first time that vic- 
torious soldiers have refused to obey the orders of 
the rulers whom they had followed to battle. 

If all the cadets in the public schools had uni- 
forms, they would look better. It is not easy to 
see why the Militia Department could nf)t Supply these 
as well as the uniforms of the Fifth Regime t and 
other military corps. Many boys would be willing 
to iuy their own, but others could not afford it. 
Still boys should remember that great battles have 
been won by soldiers in homespun. If you learn 
your drill and obey your officers, you will gain the 
praise of your superiors, uniform or no uniform. All 
the big boys in all the .schools should be cadets, just 
as all young men should belong to the volunteers. 
Canada may never need to be defended against an en- 
emy, hut she will always need men to serve her, and 
the lads who drill are learning obedience and self-con- 
trol while they are growing strong and healthy. If 
an enemy were to try to take possession of our rich 
country, is there any man worthy of the name who 
wCfuld not try to defend it? Men who know the 
harm that rifles and cannon can do and the hardships 
soldiers must bear. Ire not those ««ho recklessly risk 
their lives. It is the man who never saw war that 
talks jjiost about going to war for, fancied insults or 
trifling injuries. 

For a long time a number of able men have been 
considering how Canada's work can be best done. 
There is a very large army of men and some wo- 
men who are serving Canada quietly day by day. 
Tehy keep books and write business letters, weigh 
and value goods, collecting duties on them, survey 
land and water, manage experimental farms, and carry 
on the work of the Post Office,- and some of them 
protect our fish from waste. These and hundreds of 
other thingjs are done by the people who are called 
civil servants. The Civil Service Commission is now

On June 24 the Prince of Wales celebrated his 
nineteenth birthday, a^d a few days ago he went to 
Splthead with his grand uncle, the Duke of Connaught, 
to welcome the French President, M. de Poincaire. 
Most young gentlemen of the Prince's age are either 
at college or beginning the study of a profession. It 
is thought, however, that the heir to the throne can- 
not remain quietly at Oxford till he takes his degree. 
It seems that he is expected to study not books as 
much as people. He learned, when quite a little boy, 
how the sailors and officers of the navy live and 
what their duties are. A few years ago he took of- 
fice in Wales as the Prince of that little country. All 
the King's children have spent' their holidays in Scot- 
land, and the heir to the throne has been acknow- 
ledged there, in a formal way. Jrle lived some time at 
Oxford, that great seat of learning, and took his part 
in the sports and the studies of the' ancient school. 
Some months were spent in France, where the youth 
learned to perfect himself in the language of that 
country and to understand the customs and manners 
and, perhaps, something of the politics of England's 
ally! Lately he has had a holiday with his cousins 
in Germany. It is whispered that the Prince some- 
times gets into scrapes like other boys, and it is not 
long since he declared he hated ceremonies and show. 
Whether this sort of training is the best for a young 
man who is to be King of a great Empire or not, it 
is not easy to Judge, but we may be sure that very 
few young men work as hard as the Prince of Wales. 
It is said he will come to Canada soon, and if he does, 
he will receive a royal welcome in Victoria. 


"Day after tomorrow," said the captain of the 
levee guards, "the flood crest will be on us. The 
Government forecast says thirty-six feet, and, boys, 
that's two feet more than our levees ever had tO 
stand since they were built! And we can't get any 
help from the' relief boats— they're fighting the Mor- 
ganza crevasse. .Mr. Wilson, we've got to ry^t every 
man and boy In this town on the river, night and day. 
till the crest passes. How old is that lad of yours?" 

"Thirteen," answered .Wilson, the section boss, 
"and he isn't very big, either. But there isn't much 
about the river he don't know. He's crazy to study 
navigation and be a pilot. He's rigged a little gauge 
of his own back of the plantations, and every night 
he comes to tell his mother and me how far the back- 
water has come in from the swamps. And 1 declare 
he gets it right with the Government register, too!" 

The weary levee captain wiped his brow. With 
the other men of Rose Mound, his sleep had been 
snatched in brief hours between watching the huge 
yellow flood of the Mississippi sweep around the 
bend of the levees, higher and higher day by day. 
higher now than the roof-tree of any house in the 
village. A break anywhere in the eight-mile bend of 
earthworks would smash it like a town of cards, and 
bury eve^y foot of land from the river to the. Gulf 
beneath a rushing sea. 

"Tug's a good boy,* resumed the father; "send 
him out." 

But the levee chief shook his head. "I'm afraid. 
It's a big responsibility. The lives of every one of 
us — the town and all the plantation.^ — everything de- 
pends on every man! A boy might watch for seep- 
age and sand-boils all right, but there's always the 
chance that some one across the river will sneak on 
us. and blf5w our levee to save their side. Tomor- 
row — when every man's dead-beat out — rwe'll may- 
be call on the boyj like Tug." 

That evening, when he went off his shift. Wilson 
told Tug whi>t had been said. He had offered his boy 
with a heavy heart, for it was facing the chance of 
death to walk the wave-lathed levees in the dark. A 
shift of the wind, a twisting eddy against the weak- 
ened banks, and the guardsman would be hurled into- 
a crevasse from which there was no escape. At home, 
there might be ten minutes' warning to reach the rafts 
.ind boats, or the housetops and trees. 

But Tug was disconsolate. "I wish you'd let me 
go. ■ If the captain wanted me — and they need me!" 

"1 know every foot of the levee, Father, and — 
and they ought to trust m«. If you'd only let me 
go!" V -^ - ^'. ' • ' 

He went off after the cattle after supper, the most 
disappointed boy in- Louisiana. All the local river- 
men, levee guards, pilots and ma$ters-i-would be on 
watch, and he wanted to be with «hem. He loved 
the mighty river; it was the dream of his life io be 
a pilot some day, and take one of tht; ocean liners up 
from Southwest Pass to New Orleans. He told his 
father that he was savlnR the money, earned by driv- 
ing in the village milch cows, to pay his way through 
the school of navig&tlon la the city. 

ping" a «|lfg|^l|flfl|^jlivith sand-bags, had torn down a 
section of -ISewl^r fence, and thfough this the thirty 
cattle followed. Gaining the top, they ran along, 
and Tug could not head them. He realized the dan- 
ger. The water was already lashing the soft earth 
where the levee top was not five feet wide, and the 
cattle hoofs cut the dirt into mud. Somewhere be- 
yond, the herd would encounter the levee guard, who 
would stop the flight, but Tug would be blamed for 
it all. Never would the men allow him to patrol the 
river now! 

Barefooted and hatless, he dashed on to over- 
come the leaders. The younger cows he scattered 
down the bank, but the old "bell" and a few others 
kept on. It was almost dark when lie reached them, 
and he could hear the roar of the big eddy in the 
bend. And then, just a few yards ahead, he saw the 
leader stop. The old brindle cow lowered her head, 
sniffed, then made a clumsy jump. The next cow 
tried it. and wallowed down. Another crowded after, 
and they all pa.ssed on. But Tug stopped, staring 
hard down at the levpe. Then he looked out on the 
river. The lights of a steamer were coming up. He 
knew it was the Government relief boat, carrying men 
and sand-bags up to the threatened crevasse twenty 
miles above. But shg was sheering dangerously in 
toward the big bend. And right here at Tug's feet, 
the first water was pouring through a low spot where 
the guards had made a sand-bag "topping" — a mere 
trickle which the cattle h,u1 churned deeper, so that 
now the mud was being filtered over and down the bank inside. 

The boy was swept by the sense of peril. At flood 
stage, the steamers were warned away from the le- 
vees, but the heavily laden Magnolia was fighting a 
north wind and the pull of the big eddy, and, to 
bring her out of the bend, she would go hard to star- 
board, so that the wash from her paddle-wheels 
would come straight in on the crumbling bank. Al- 
ready Tug saw one of the sand-bags sink and twist 
down in the soft earth, and the water come gurgling 
over it. He stood on the bag topping and shouted, but 
he knew at onoe that the steamer men could not hear 
him, or probably could do nothing if they did.

N architectural tragedy, compared 
to '.vbich the fall of the Cam- 
panile at Venice would appear 
insignificant, threatens the mighty 
city of Rome. 

The most ancient and famous buildings of 
the city are situated above a subterranean lake 
that has been accumulating for centuries, ever 
since the time of Nero, in fact. 

At any moment there is danger that the 
thin top crust of soil may give way and cause 
the buildings to fall into the hidden quagmire. 
Even if the crust does not break through, a 
disaster just as complete is likely to occur. A 
shifting of the unstable top soil through in- 
abtlity to bear the weight placed upon it would 
cause the buildings above to collapse in irre- 
trievable ruin. 

Already many buildings have shown un- 
mistakable signs of an approaching collapse 
from this cause. Some, like the Church of 
Santa Maria in Trasteyere, which is associated 
with Cardinal Gibbons' title, have suffered 
substantial damage, while others, Hlci^^.,^ 
•Colosseum, are beginning to show 

The architects of mediaevat^i|BNl^

day. Men and women bathed toother in the 
most promiscuous manner. Drunkenness be- 
came common among the womfcn on these 
occasions, and- the classic writers tell ue how 
the modesty and simplicity of the early Ro- 
man matrons were completely destroyed by 
the baths. 

In these days, when governments are ex-' 
pected to do much for the amusement of the 
people, just as the old Roman Emperors did, 
it would seem a brilliant idea to revive ia some 
measure the gorgeous public baths of old.' The 
proposal to restore the baths of wickefi" Cara- 
calla sounds particularly fascinating. 

But when the practical details of the restor- 
ation came to be considered, itjwas found that 
there would be no way of carrying off the 
vast quantity of water that would be needed. 
It would have to run up hill to the Tiber. The 
plan had to be abandoned until an engineering 
problem of vastly greater importance should 
be settled. .

into their calculations have placed a strain on 
the foundations w^ich they were never intended 
to bear. 

These old architects were sometimes rash 
adventurers in putting up their great monu- 
ments. This was strikingly shown in the case 
of the Campanile of Venice, where a few light 
timbers were laid on a thin crust of earth as 
a foundation for a colossal structure. The 
building stood unmoved for centuries simply 
through good luck. Finally, an unusual shift- 
ing of the underlying waters caused the great 
tower to fall like a house of cards. 

In Rome various conditions have combined 
to create a subterranean lake beneath the 
older portions of the city. The continual fill- 
ing up of the Tiber through the silt carried 
down from the mountains and highlands has 
caused the river to rise above the lower parts of 
the city. Consequently, it is no longer as 
etTective as it was in carrying off drainage and 

At the same time, the many springs exist- 
ing throughout the city have been covered up, 
instead of being permitted to flow to the river, 
as they formerly did. These springs and the 
surface water have been contributing to the 
formation of the underground lake for many 

Recently an interesting propositi 
made to restore the enormous Baths of Cara- 
calla to their original use, namely, bathing. 
These splendid baths, the creation of the 
maddest and most magnilicent tyrant that ever 
lived, held over 2,000 persons. It was pointed 
out that the population of modern Rome would 
be greatly benefited if it could enjoy the use 
of the baths. - . 

The many Roman baths, or thermae, were 
built, for the enjoyment of the people by the 
Emperors, who had to content the populace. 
Among the later extravagant rulers each one 
endeavored to surpass his predecessor in the 
magnificence of the baths he constructed. 

The Roman baths included swimming 
baths, warm baths, hot air baths and vapor 
baths. The later baths, such as those of Cara- 
calla, contained also theatres, libraries, gym- 
nasia and other places of amusement and dis- 
sipation. The specially luxurious thermae, be- 
sides the one mentioned, were those of Agrippa, 
Nero, Titus, Domitian, Commodus, Diocletian 
and Constantine. 

Fourteen aqueducts were used in ancient 
Rome to supply the water for all these im- 
mense bathing establishments. Of these 
aqueducts only four are now in use. The 
water supply of the city has diminished by 
3 7,000,000 gallons since then. 

It is said that the baths of Caracalla con- 
tained upward of 2,000 seats for the use of 
the bathers. There was a stadium for the 
games liy the young men, with raised seats 
for the spectators. There were open colon- 
nades and seats for philosophers, literary men 
and journalists to sit and discourse, read their 
productions aloud and discuss the latest news. 

Near the porticoes in the interior 'open 
space, rows of trees were planted. There was 
a sphaeristerium, or place for playing ball 
within the enclosure. There were also places 
for less wholesome pastimes. 

The bathing pools were adorned with 
beautiful marbles. The halls were ornamented 
with the finest pieces of statuary. The walls 
were covered with exquisite mosaics that imi- 
tated the art of ttie painter. Egyptian syenite 
was encrusted with precious green marbles of 
Numidia, the rooms contained the works of 
Phidias and Praxiteles, and much of the artistic 
spoil of conquered Greece,. A perpetual stream 
of water was poured into the pools from the 
wide hiouths of lions of bright and polished 

To such excesses was the love of bathing 
carried by the later decadent Romans that

their appearance in this church,- and recently 
they have become very serious. Cardinal 
Gibbons, of Baltimore, who takes his title from 
the church, wrote to the government concern- 
ing its condition when he last visited Rome. 
The church is classed as. a historic monument, 
and is under the care of the Department of 
Fine Arts. The department disregarded the 
cardinal's complaint for several years. 

The church is now in a very dangerous 
condition. The architrave over the left lateral 
door has been displaced. A marble slab above 
it, bearing an inscription by Cardinal d'Al-. 
temps, has cracked and partially fallen down. 

The left portion of the handsome facade is 
threatened with ruin, and the main portico is 
greatly damaged. The interesting stucco work 
of a pretty little chapel on the right of the 
main entrance has fallen down in large quan- 

The Fine-. Arts Department, after several 
years of delay, has sent inspeciors to see how 
far the damage has gone. ..They admit that 
it is vfery serious and have ordered various 
valuable objects of art to -be. removed. A 
ciborium, by Mino da Fiesole, was removed 
from the little chapel lest it should be dam- 
aged by a ccUapse of the walls. 
" There is water under practically every 
building in Rome. Among the famous build- 
ings and sites beiieved to be in most immedi- 
ate danger are the Colosseum, the Pantheon, 
the Forum, the Theatre of Pompey, the Mau- 
soleum of Augustus and the Temple of Mars 
and many others of all periods. 

Twentv-three springs are known to have 
existed in classical times within the walls of 
Rome. AH of these then found their way to 
the Tiber. Now all but live of them have 
been covered up by new soil and the waters of 
the remainder are collecting beneath ifit sur- 

We know from ancient writings that the 
original site of Rome lay largely among the 
marshes by the banks of the Tiber, with the 
celebrated seven hills rising above and beyond 
them. The ancient Romans were careful to 
drain these marshes as they built up the city, 
but moderns have not been so wise. 

The Roman Forum, the. heart of the 
ancient city, occupies a valley which extends 
from the Capitoline Hill to the northeast part 
of the Palatine. Till' the construction of the 
great cloacae, or sewers, it was marshy ground, 
on which stood several pools. 

One of these was the Lacus Curtius, which 
vanished whep the cloacae were constructed, 
as described by Livy. According- to tradition 
it marked the spot where the hero Curtius 
in very early times leapt into the chasm that 
had opened in the Forum. After the water had 
been drained away the site was enclosed and 
marked by an altar. 

Another pool, the Lacus Servilius, near 
the Basilica Julia, in the Forum, was pre- 
served until near the imperial period. Under 
Salla it was used as a plnce to expose, the 
heads of many senators murdered in his 

The ancient Roman sewers were egg- 
shaped in cross section. Only recently mod- 
ern engineers rediscovered the fact fhat this 
was the strongest and most efficient form for 

a sewer. 



"Can't I sit up just a, little later, mother'" 
is a plea that is heard in every home where 
there are children the civilized world over. 
Aqd in far too many of these homes the fond 
and doting parents, unwilling to displea.<:e their 
youngsters, all too frequently reply, "Well, 
just half an hour longer." 

Then the child dawdles vvbout at. the ex- 
piration of the half hour before going to bed. 

But when morning comes the breakfast is at 
the same hour and the youngsters have to get 
up and cat and get o if to school just as early, 
regardless of the faet that they lost an* oui 
from their sleep by retiring that much latci 
than usual. " t*^ .. 

It is triic that women will not depart a 
hair's breadth from their cpstomcry methods 
of making a cake ' or ' cutting a garment, or 
doing any ordinary work, nor will the fathers 
deviate in the least from certain rules in tneir 
business or profession, whether it be machin- 
ery or chemistry or anything else. Yet, these 
same people as parents permit those dearest 
to then to change about in their regular hours 
of sleeping, allow them to sleep less and do 
all sorts of things that will break up their rest 
and tend to shatter their health in time. 

There should be just as much firmness in 
the matter of making children sleep the proper 
number of hours as there is care in making a 
cake or building a bridge or mixing chemicals; 
there should be more care, in fact, for, afte| 
all, the children are above everything else in 
life and the laws of succeeding generations. 

Children of different ages nee^i different 
hours of sleep, <he infant sleeping most of the 
time, while the young lad or young miss needs 
less than half the day for sleep. Of course, 
it is possible to sleep too much. A great many 
grown people probably do sleep too much, but 
it is seldom a child will do that. In the first 
place, a child^j;^|ure is different. When it 
has had suffic^^^|ep it, wakes up naturally, 
its young bocq|ii|g|rted and its natural desire be. up and pfayini:. 

With children the danger Is always on the" 
side of not enough sleep. If a child wants to 
sleep an hour or so longer than usual, it is quite 
natural, in most cases, and due, no doubt, 
to the fact that it had played a little harder 
on the day previous. 

According to the best of authorities, the 
following table shows the least number of 
hours that children of various ages should 

At 4 months 20 hours 

At 6 months 18 hours 

At 1 year 1 5 hours 

At 2 years 15 hours

Everyone knows that the Chinese claim 
the invention of gunpowder. It is declared by 
educated Chinamen that in the great and im- 
perial records that have been accumulating at 
Pekin for so many hundreds of years there is 
an, account that proves the Chinese knew 
about and used gunpowder more than two 
thousand years ago. 

Research has led to the belief, however, 
that the Chinese did not actually invent gun- 
powder, but discovered it through a, series of 
peculiar accidents. Gunpowder consists of 
saltpetre, powdered charcoal and powdered 
sulphur, but just the powdered charcoal and 
saltpetre will make a very good explosive. 

Now, throughout many of the great plains 
in both India and China there is found on the 
surface quantities of saltpetre. The men who 
have been making studies of this have finally 
come to the.conclusioiVhat doubtless the man- 
ner in which gunpowder was discovered was 
a "simple accident. 

Men camped on these plains, according to 
the claims of some experts, built fires and left 
here and there great spots of coals and charred 
wood from their camp fires. The charred 
wood was nothing more or less than char- 
coal, and this in time was trampled down by 
cattle and horses and men crossing these plains, 
leaving finely-powdered charcoal lying over 
the saltpetre plains. 

In places where the saltpetre cropped out 
of the ground in larger and' purer quantities 
there soon occurred a combination of salt- 
petre and powdered charcoal wherever camp 
fires were made. Then other travelers across 
these plains stopped by the wayside and built 
their fires. 

No doubt these travelers were at first 
frightened and mystified to find that whenever 
they lighted their camp fires there came flashes 
and explosions and puffs that sent smoke and 
fine cinders flying about them. Investigations 
in other spots led to the discovery that such 
explosions happened only where there was 
charred wood ground fine on the ground. 

From this the deduction was simple, even 
two thousand or more years ago, and experi- 
ments soon led to the discovery of why these 
explosions happened. From all this it is 
claimed now that the Chinaman has really 
good proof that his people knew about gun- 
powder two thousand years ago. 

Standing by the entrance of a large estate 
in the suburbs of Dublin are two huge dogs 
carved out of granite.

big dogs?" 

"Whenever they bark, sir," was the 
straightforward reply.

E are absolutely ignorant of every- 
thing in Holy Russia. Its history 
is a secret, its politics a mystery. 
To the public, as a whole, the 
main lines of this history and poli- 
tics are "caviar," as they say in Germany. It 
is perhaps" possible, however, in the light of 
the past to draw forth from these obscure lines 
the principles which have guided Czar Nicholas 
n. the reformer. You feel that they give a 
vague idea of the national ambitions and when 
you look at them closer you may perhaps apply 
to Russia the words of Mme. de Stael about our 
old regime in France: 

"What is old in France is not despotism, 
but freedom." 

Yes, there is an old freedom in Russia, and 
it is this freedom which Czar Nicholas has 
wanted to draw forth and reinstate after cen- 
turies of prejudices and violence. 

At the outset the S^MM^ Poland and Rus- 
sia living as nomads orr^ne plains between the 
Ural Mountains and the River Vistula did not 
obey any chief. Even after the establishment 

of the ciyna||i^|MWM^' ^^^"^^^y °^ ^^^ 
fathers of t^^^fflf^^K^Vetch" alone de- 
cided the affairs of e^ji^wber: JBut this was 
very long ago. It is;! 
the require meit i 

the very essence of political autocracy, when it 
wants to preserve its paternal and patriarchal 
character, an act which by a single stroke of 
the pen in tlie midst of countless compHcations 
made fifty millions of serfs free. This great 
measure had been planned, desired and pro- 
mised by the successor of "Nichola /.. since 
1856, the day after the fall of Sebastopol, and 
he pronounced then a sentence which applies 
fully as well to our present time: 

"It is better that order is created by reforms 
from above than to wait until troubles arise 
from below." 

Might we not say that it was these words 
which inspired Czar Nicholas when he, during 
a crisis equally as grave as that of 1856, dic- 
tated the imperial edict which opened a wide 
field for future reforms? The inspiration, is 
the same. The imperial policy never deviates. 
Once more it endeavors to break through the 
wall which separates it from the people. The 
father turns to his children and takes council 
to discuss with them the fate of the coyntjYi^-

the Russian sovereign is 1i»i "f^^SHif" than 
a father. To his people, who are still so close 
to Asiatic traditions he still remains iht master 
of the tent. It is towards him that all eyes 
turn. He is feared, but he is also beloved, 
obeyed because discipline makes this necessary, 
beloved because that feeling is natural to his 

Thus the imperial power is tempered by 
the kindness appropriate to the head of family. 
When the Czar steps down among his people 
he does not lower himself, when he asks their 
advice he loses nothing of his authority; if he 
sometimes contradicts himself he does so in a 
laudable desire to do better, for does not a 
father .try every means to promote the welfare 
of his children? And the children respect him 
even in his errors. If the father needs control 
and restraint he finds them in his heart. 

The working together of wills and souls is 
after all the whole Russian constitution. There- 
fore, reforms are at the same time easy and 
difficult: easy when they tend only towards de- 
veloping or re-establishing the harmony of so- 
cial sentiments, difficult when they pretend to 
follov/ foreign examples or conform to the pre- 
cepts of pure doctrines. 

It is thus understood how in Russia, the 
most rigid autocracy lives alongside the most 
extreme democracy. Between the Czar and 
his people there is the fellowship of common in- 
terest and tendencies. What occasionally dis- 
turbs their relations and brings them out of 
contact with each other is the administrative 
hierarchy which with fatal results comes be- 
tween the will of the sovereign and the wishes 
of the people. This intermediary hierarchy — 
the nobility or "tchine" — has too often made 
the law of the empire, but it is in turn often 
exposed to the awakening of the two forces 
above and below which crush it between their 
two millstones, when they come together. 

When Ivan the Terrible had reached the 
age of manhood he entered into the fight be- 
tween the administration of the Boyars and 
the Duma, that is to say he took part against 
the aristocracy which surrounded and ham- 
pered him. Just as PhiHp of France convoked 
the first Assembly of the Estates to counterbal- 
ance the ecclesiastic hierarchy and the aris- 
tocracy, the Russian monarch appealed to the 
representatives of the lower classes, the nat- 
ural adversaries of the Boyars. He too con- 
voked the first assembly in which the represen- 
tatives of the people were admitted alongside » 
the aristocrats. This was the famous "Sobor," 
the Russian Assembly of the Estates, whose ex- 
istence was prolonged till 1682, that is to say 
to the time of Peter the Great. So you see 
there is old freedom in Russia. 

In the meantime the territories of the em- 
pire continued to expand. T4ie ever-increasing 
distances made the establishment of some kind 
of administration Absolutely necessary. >Our- 
ing the three centuries, of modern history this 
admhiistration continued its work, keeping the 
people in abject slavery and elevating the Czar 
on the pedestal of military despotism. It is su- 
perfluous to remark that this persevering. 
method often causes blood revolutions from 
below, followed by violent repressions from 
above. Peter the Great himself, imbued with 
the monarchistic ideas of Louis XIV., was the 
declared enemy of the aristocracy. Like our 
Richelieu, he destroyed what the Conventions 
called the "intermediary powers." 

The nobility perished, and there remained 
around the imperial throne only a vast demo- 
cracy, kept by ah army of officials In, a net of 
obscure and arbitrary ref^uiations. And this 
democracy preserved utltil one time the appear^ 
ance oif serfdom. 

In Fei^ruary, 1861, the imperial authority 
struck its last and most powerful blow to do 
away with the evils of serfdom— an act 6f an 
incrediWe energy inspired by this love of the 
pleofle and the hatred of all privfkg^es, wMth it

authors, the one going to the Isle of Wight and 
the other to the lovely Upper Thames to com- 
plete their respective tasks. 


Cowden Clarke tells, in his "Recollec- 
tions," how, on December 30, 1816, he ac- 
companied Keats on a visit to Leigh Hunt at 
the laticr's cottage on Hampstead Heath, and 
how Hunt challenged Keats to write "then, 
there, and to time," a sonnet on "The Grass- 
hopper and the Cricket." Keats gained the 
victory over his rival in point of time, but 
critics are agreed that Hunt wrote a better 

Strangely enough, the finest sonnet Leigh 
Hunt ever wrote, and certainly one of the 
finest in the language, his splendid Nile son- 
net, was the result of a friendly competition 
between him and two infinitely greater poets, 
Keats and Shelley. It is one of the curiosities 
of literature that the three sonnets on the same 
subject should be, in quality, in inverse ratio 
to the genius of the writers, for Hunt's is un- 
mistakably the best, Keat's second, and 
Shelley's a bad third. 

Oliver Goldsmith was defective in con- 
versational powers, and was occasionally made 
the butt of the witticisms of the famous club 
of which he was a member, and which in- 
cluded such men as Johnson, Garrick, Burke 
and Reynolds. One night it was proposed to 
write mock epitaphs on him, his country, 
dialect and person furnishing subjects of sar- 
castic comment. 


These efforts were read aloud in Gold- 
smith's hearing, and he was challenged to re- 
taliate. The next evening he came to the club 
and read his famous satirical poem, entitled 
"Retaliation," m which he has put all his 
great contemporaries in pickle till the crack of 
doom. It is a series of brilliant portraits in 
words, as replete with well-known "quota- 
tions" as "Hamlet," one of the best being that 
on Garrick: 

He cast off his friends like a huntsman his pack. 
For he knew when ht pleased he could whistle 
them back. 

When Robert Burns was little known be- 
yond the circle of his village cronies, there 
came to the tavern which he patronized a man 
named Andrew Horner, who was on his- -way 
to Edinburgh to try to g^t a volume of verse i 
published of which he was very vain. Burns' 
friends pitted the two poets against each other,

be of value in appreciating the;_j 
many details that enter into thel^ 
modern telephone service, which 
is such an essential of everyday 
life both in the city and the rural 

Though the telephone is fhe 
most used of any daily utility, few- 
people know the intricacies of op- 
eration attending an ordinary call. 
All the subscriber cares about is prompt ser- 
vice, and in this point British Columbia cities 
are fortunate, for the average interval between 
the time the receiver is taken off the hook until 
the operator responds is up to what is regard- 
ed as the standard in America, namely, a little 
over three seconds. To enable this prompt 
service to be given the telephone company has 
■worked out its system thoroughly, ahd eftl- 
ciency is maintained by constant and unceas- 
ing effort. 

Even before an application is ma^ from a 
district for telephone service, the company's 
engineers have been over the ground. The ob- 
ject, is to anticipate the desire of a subscriber, 
not to wait until the demand is insi.stent. Plans 
are prepared, these being based on estimated 
future development, and as soon as. there are 
enough applications to warrant starting an ex- 
change a central institution is installed and ser- 
vice begun. 

The real interest of the subscriber begins 
when the receiver is taken off the hook and 
the wait begins for Central. The minute the re- 
ceiver is taken off, the action is indicated at the 
central exchange by a number of small signal 
lamps, little incandescents smaller in clrcum-

With party lines, by ea ingenious system In 
connection with the trunk cords, any bell on a 
line may be rung by the operator simply de- 
pressing the correct button. 

After the calling person is connected with 
the called subscriber, a considerable interval 
sometimes elapses. It is impossible for the 
operator to wait in on the line until the called 
number an^^wers, so she has to rely on her su- 
pervisoVysignals for information on the prog- 
ress of the call. By these she can tell whether 
the called party has answered, whether the con- 
versation is finished, or if either is waiting for 
another call. At the end of thirty seconds, if 
her signals show that the desired party has not 
answered, the operator opens the listening key 
and informs the subscriber, "1 will ring again," 
and at the end of another interval, if still no 
answer is forthcoming, the calling subscriber 
will be informed that the numlier called does 
not answer. 

Before an operator is allowed to take a 
place at a switchboard .-she is trained for at 
least a month at a regular switchboard,

To make the speed of answering telephone 
calls as uniform as possible/ th# operators are 
trained in team work, that li, they are taught 
to answer the signals in the order that they 
appear, whether the signal appiiars directly in

ators. In other words, each' operatdf helps

her neighbor when assistancs it required. Teaih

over ten seconds' are but two per cent. This 
two per cent over ten seconds is occasioned by 
an unusually large number of signals appear-

while three or four operators an?wcr these calls, 
if there are five or six signals appearing at the

)rg^ Among this is the narrative of the 

fratricidal war of a century ago 

between England and the United States, the 

daughterland of a few decades- ago. But an 

appeal might be made that the record should 

be spared of the duel between the Shannon 

and the Chesapeake. 

This is a tale which the British navy can- 
not afford to forget; indeed, under whatever

It was eiactly a hnndi'ed years ago on

pe^ met. The anniversary is a reminder bf

nothing succeeds like success, frequently sue

^'^^d^tea- against if ailthprobabie, If not Impossi- 
ble combination of enemies. The great sea 
powers, one after the other, had been crushed; 
even the mighty fleet of Napoleon had been 
humiliated and decimated. There was some 
excuse if the officers of the British navy felt 
that the glory of Trafalgar was still reflected 
upon them and formed an invisible defence 
that none would dare to challenge. 

The country was in conlident inood, and 
the sea service shared this optimistic feeling. 
There were many British ships of war, they 
were well-found and well-manned, and to all 
appearances the navy Jiad attained the acme 
of efficiency. Neyer were so rriany spick and 
span ships seen on the seas under the white 
ensign; every vessel was yachtlike in faultless 
naval toilet, and the sail evolutions were a 
source of pride, British ships were things of 
joy to the eye—beautiful wtihout and within. 
Only one detail was omitted — the practice of 
shooting. Gunnery was thought of little ac- 
count by most commanding officers; they 
were confident of success if the hdur struck 
for action. Fortunately for the history of 
the British people there was one man who 
realized that the essential role of a man-of-war 
was not' to look pretty, but to light and win. 
That man was Captain Philip Broke— -"Brave 
Broke" — The Percy Scott of his day. 

He had been in command of the Shannon 
for about seven years when the chance of win- 
ning the fame of centuries crossed his path. 
The conscientious performance of his duties 
and good luck brought him to the post-cap- 
tain's list in 180 1, before he was twenty-five 
years of age, and then he had four years on 
shore unemployed, so he got married. Even 
when the war broke out again the Admiralty 
would give him no ship. Then he was as- 
signed to a small frigate, and finally, in I806, 
was appointed to the Shannon. As a French 
historian — himself a naval officer — has re- 
corded in terse phrases: "The Shannon cap- 
tured the Chesapeake on June 1, 1813; but 
on September 14, 1806,> when he took com- 
mand of his frigate. Captain Broke had be- 
gun to prepare for the glorious termination 
to this bloody affair." 


Broke, indeed, sacrificed his own and liis 
crew's comfort and interests to lighting ef- 
ficiency. It was the custom of the service to 
cast the guns loose only for the battle. Broke 
exercised his officers and men at them every 
day, except Saturday. He would take no 
prize if it meant sending a prize crew on board, 
because this would disorganize his training 
routine. He even fitted the guns with sights 
at his own expense, and cared not a jot that 
the crew were so busy at quarters and target 
practice that his vessel could not compete wtih 
others in paintwork or polished brass. He was 
regarded by his contemporaries as a singular 
man, and he was, and thereby wr>n singular 

In company wtih the Tcncdo?, Broke in 
the Shannon had been lying off Boston since 
April, blockading American siiijis, when the 
Summer opened. Two vessels had got away. 
These incidents and the knowledge that the 
British navy had had some inglorious reverses 
elsewhere on the Atlantic coast chafed Broke. 
He knew the Chesapeake remained in the har- 
bor, and in order to tempt her to come out 
the Shannon's captain sent off the Tenedos on 
detached service, and forthwith forwarded to 
Captain Lawrence, of the American frigate, a 
punctiliously worded challenge to a duel. 
This is a document of note, it set forth in 
detail the character of the Shannon, the size 
of her crew, the number of her guns, and 
a mass of other information. 11 promised that 
every precaution would bn !aken to ensure 

that no other British ship intervened to turn 
the odds against the Chesapeake, and, 
finally, .Mroke added that, if desired, he would 
^ sail with Lawrence under a flag of truce to any 
place "you think safest from our cruisers" 
hauling it down when both were ready to be- 
gin fighting. 

It was to be a duel between two ships of 
the same class, with the advantage in guns 
and the number of men in favor of - the 
American frigate. Broke could, however, 
count on something of greater value than 
tons or even guns — a ship's company trained 
incessantly to their battle duties. The 
Chesapeake, on the other hand, had only h||a,.,| 
in commission i few weeks, and the crew Wik '■

nearly proved fatal. The infuriated British 
bluejackets cut the miscreant into pieces with 
the fierceness of an insatiable revenge. 

Another desperate rush, though the leader 
had fallen, completed the clearance of the foe, 
and Lieutenant Watt proudly, but hurriedly, 
hoisted the British blue ensign at the gaff end 
of the Chesapeake as the signal of victory to 
the Shannon, for the two vessels had by this 
time drifted apart. Then he had a thought that 
he would like to employ a white ensign which 
he had brought with him. He hauled dov/n the 
blue flag with the intention of making the 
exchange. The men remaining in the Shan-

There was a time, according to scientists, 
when all the seas were fresh water. 

Of course, it is impossible to estimate ex- 
actly when this was, but these same scientists 
feel certain that it was at least six or seven 
hundred thousand years ago, and they explain 
this very simply by their practical explanation 
of why the seas are salt today. 

Everyone knows what the water sources 
of the earth are. They are springs and brook- 
lets in lakes, ponds, marshes, streams and, tin- 
ally, mighty rivers, which all lend their water, 
one to the other, and finally flow into the 
ocean. These scientists declare that the salt 
was not originally in the ocean beds, but car 
from the salts which are found in the soil. 

Naturally, these salts, which are soluble, 
are swept on and on down mountains, across 
plains and through valleys, gathering in quan- 
tity all the time until they are finally ,depos-

The accompanying pictures give* some 
idea of the topography of the country. They 
were taken by the Gillespie Brothers, of this 
city, when making a Summer excursion up the 
Nitnat River (which they entered from the 
West Coast) to Cowichan Lake, thence down 
the river of the same name to Duncan. The 
entire excursion^ with the exception of a few 
short portages, was made by water. They 
discovered en route many little lakes and 
waterways, seldom visited, which teemed with 
fish, it needing but the crudest of tackle to 
land enough for a meal at any time. This 
outing gives some conception of the possibili- 
ties in the way of sport which. the Cowichan 
district presents. 


With the exception of minerals, it is diffi-

John Bull his joint of beef.

Entombed in a grim castle on the outskirts 
of Lisbon are some of the most miserable''men 
on earth. These are inmates of Portugal's 
"Prison of Silence." In this building every- 
thing that human ingenuity can suggest to ren- 
der the lives of its prisoners a horrible, madden-

on tier five storeys high, extend from a com-

The cellars are narrow, tomb-like, and 
within each stands a cofiln. The attendants 
creep about in felt slippers. No one is allowed 
to utter a word. The silence is that of the

clothed in shrouds and with faces covered by 
masks, for it is part of this hideous punish-

teS»VwSile challenge, which he did not live 
to read. When the Shannon stood out to 
sea, under easy canvas, Lawrence bore down 
on her with all sails set. He also was de- 
termined on a fair fight, and thought to live 
to achieve yet another victory. He had three 
ensigns flying, a large white flag at the fore 
was inscribed "Sailors' Rights and Free 
Trade," and everything seemed to have been 
planned to give confidence and courage to his 
ill-assorted crew, including some British de- 


. The Shannori's men would have liked to 
make some sort of counter-demonstration. 
Broke, kindly and human in his instincts, and 
usually the most considerate of officers, would 
not even permit an extra ensign to be flown, 
much less the mocking cheers to be answered. 
He addressed his men in firm, quiet tones. 
"I feel sure you will do your duty," he con- 
cluded; "remember, you have the blood of 
hundreds of your countrymen to avenge." 
"May we have three ensigns, sir, like she ha's," 
asked one man, looking towards the American 
frigate as, with colors streaming, she drew up 
within 200 yards of the Shannon's weather 
beam — a sight to please the eye of any 
sailor. "No," answered Broke, "we have al- 
ways been an unassuming ship." 

The Fates were against Lawrence. He 
came up bravely within about fifty yards from 
the Shannon's quarter, and his enemy opened 
a deadly fire; the American replied as soon as 
she could bring her weapons to bear, but with 
less accuracy." As the two ships moved on the 
water side by side, guns answered guns in 
quick succession. The Chesapeake had al- 
ready suffered no little damage when, having 
passed ahead, and attempting to haul her 
foresail up, she fell on board the British ship, 
whose starboard bower anchor hooked the 
larboard mizzen chains of her opponent. 

What a scene the fight presented as the 
two men-of-war, with big guns and muskets 
dealing out death and destruction at closest 
quarters, clasped each other in mortal com- 
bat! Broke had foreseen the probable course 
6f events, and he had his boarders read)'. The 
instant an opportunity occurred he rushed on 
board the Chesapeake, shouting "Follow me 
who can," he mounted the Shannon's fore- 
castle carronade and leapt on to the quarter- 
deck of the American ship, a number of of- 
ficers and men rushing after him. He was 
supported by the main-deck boarders. From 
the narratives of the survivors of the short but 
bloody fight, Captain Brenton. a contempor- 
ary officer, relates that "Captain Broke, fol- 
lowed by about sixty of his people, put to 
death all that opposed his passage round the 
gangway, and drove the Americans beinw, 
while the bow guns of the Sliaifnon, ur.dcr 
the command of Lieutenant Wallis, made 
dreadful havoc on Wit main-deck of the 
enemy. Mr. Comahan, a midshipmafi of the 
Shannon, placed himself on her mainyard, 
whence, with musketry, he killed or wounded 
nearly all the men stationed in the main and 
mizzcn-top of the enemy." Having cleared 
the quarter-deck, the British bluejackets, 
cheering as they rushed forward, united on the 
forecastle and drove most of the crew of the 
Chesapeake below. 


It was during this period' of the struggle 
that an incident occurred which ruined Broke 's 
career, and saddened his later years with in- 
termittent but intense suffering. In making 
a charge along the larboard gangway he 
lipared an American sailor who pleaded for 
quarter; the man instantly snatched up a cut- 
lass and dealt his deliverer a heavy blow on 
.the back of his head, inflicting injuries which 

bega^n to turn back to Boston, grlef-strlckeEr 
and dismayed, 4uid a little later the Shannpn, 
.with her^ dearly bdught {»flse» sailed away.

had been mo^|^-'<ijini|^^ former dying 

on June 4, and being buried at Halifax two 
days later with the honors of war. Alto- 
gether the Chesapeake lost 92 officers and 
men and over a hundred wounded. The 
Shannon had to mourn 3 officers and 23 men 
killed, while her captain, two other officers, 
and 58 men were wounded. Thus the record 
of this ever-memorable duel off Boston 
Lighthouse, in the closing months of this 
fratricidal war, was that nearly 300 men of 
the two ships were killed or wounded, or 20 
men for every minute of the action. 

"Brave Broke" never again went to sea. 
He sailed from England a virtually unknown 
naval captain in sturdy health; he returned 
home a hero when still a young man in years 
— on the sunny side of forty — but doomed to 
a life of pain, stoically suffered in silence. 
The descendant of an old Suffolk family, he 
was made a baronet, and later received the 
K. C.B.; honors and congratulations were 
showered upon him, and his exploit was in 
every man's mouth and became the burden 
of schoolboys' song. In due course he was 
advanced — a mere matter of seniority — to 
the rank of rear-admiral, and died in London 
in 1841. He was buried in the Suffolk parish 
that gave him birth. His prize, after lying 
some years in Portsmouth Harbor, was broken 
up; her timbers may still be seen in the Meon 
Valley; they now serve as the floors and walls 
of an old mill, and are as sound as ever. His 
name and title are no more, but he is repre- 
senfed by two grand-daughters— -one is the 
wife of Admiral Sir Lambton Loraine, Bt., 
and the other is married to James St. Vincent, 
Lord de Saumarez, the grandson of Nelson's 
famous companion in arms. — London Daily 

Two young lady friends met, and after an 
interchange of the usual salutations, one re- 

"Oh, May, I'm so glad to see you. Indeed, 
I was just on my way to call. The fact is, I 
want you, as my oldest friend, to be one of my 

Bridesmaid, Daisy! How lovely!" ex- 
claimed May. "But I didn't know you were en- 

"Well, 1 know it's sudden," was the an- 
swer, "but he's awfully much in love, you 
know; and it's really just too sweet to live. Will 
you act, May? " 

"Act? Of course 1 will. 1 shall be 
charmed. But," and she took a step as though 
to move off, "do come round the corner and tell 
me all about it. Here is Bob Henderson, that 
laughing, gibbering idiot. He is grinning just 
as though he meant to stop, and I don't care to 
be seen talking to him." 

"Bob Henderson!" exclaimed Daisy, in an 
amazed fashion. "Why, he's the man I'm go- 
ing to marry!" 


An Irishman made his way to a county jail 
and asked to be allowed to see the governor. 
On being ushered into that functionary's pres- 
' ence he begged for the favor of an interview 
with a prisoner who was to suffer the fcjcfreme 
penalty of the law in the course of the morning. 

"No, my man," said the governor, on being 
appealed to, "you cannot see the prisoner. H* 
is to be executed in half an hour's time, and it 
is not allowed for visitors to see a prisoner on 
the day of execution. But what might be your 
business with him? " 

"Shure. sorr," answered Pat, "it's his birth- 
day, and 1 was afther wishing him many happy

One of the most characteristnf '^BTOff.^^fc 
have of Thoreau, that wonderfully close and 
poetic observer of Nature, is told by a friend 
who accompanied him on one of his long 
walks about Concord. The two men fell to 
talking of those rude arrow-heads, chopped 
from stone, which are almost the only relics 
now to be found of the Indian tribes that used 
to hunt in that region; and Thoreau's com- 
panion expressed his surprise that anyone 
could ever see, in those wide fields around 
th£m, such mere chips of quartz. "Here is 
one now," replied Thoreau, stopping and pick- 
ing one up at his friend's very feet. 

Thoreau was justly proud of his keen 
power of observation, and used to explain it 
by saying that he knew what to look for. 
"Nature," he writes in -one of his books, "does 
not cast pearls before swine. There is just 
as much beauty visible to us in the landscape 
as we are prepared to appreciate — not a grain 
more. . . . There is no power to see in 
the eye itself." he insists, "any more than in 
any other jelly. We cannot see anything 
until we are possessed with the idea of it, take 
it into our heads." And later in the same pas- 
sage he cries: "Why, it takes a sharpshooter 
to bring down even such trivial game as 
snipes and woodcocks; he must take very par- 
ticular aim and know what he is aiming at. 
. . . And so is it with him who shoots at 
beauty; though he wait till tiie sky falls, .he 
will not bag any if he does not already know 
its seasons and haunts, and the color of its 



A good story is told of W. J. Fox, a 
free trade colleague of John Bright. Fox was 
a clever debater and unexcelled in repartee. 
His chief heckler in Oldham was a local baker, 
who once had the misfortune to be fined by 
the magistrates for selling short-weight bread. 
Fox also had the misfortune to separate from 
his wife. On one occasion, after he had de- 
livered an address to his constituent^* the 
baker got up and said : 

"Mr. Fox, ttiere is just one. question 1 
should like fo ask you. What has became of 
your wife?",' 

"Sir," replied Mr. Fox, "she has. bepn

The population of Africa h&s been 
vartouply estimated at 127,000/00 to 
176,000,000 people. Tho truth of the 
mftttpr \b that no one knows; for In 
some parts the natives have never been 
definitely numbered. I should say that 
a fair estimate would be 160,000,000, or 
one-tenth of the people of the world, 
writes H. J. Frey In The Montreal WU- 
neas. Counting the area, Including the 
Islanils, as 12,000,000 square miles, would 
give ah averaee of thirteen to the 
square mile. In North America, this 
a\eiage is sixteen. South America,

WMs^tr pit the population may be 
divided among perhaps seven races, as 
follows: Abyssinian, Egyptian, Nubian, 
Xumldlan, Hottentot, Bushmen and 
Bantu. The Inhabitants of North Africa 
are a mixed class of peopln, neither 
white nor black. They consist In great 
part nf a mixture of Mohammedan, 
Moors and Arabs with some of the 
above named races. Though industrially 
and intellectually they surpass the 
Negroes and other tribes farther south, 
yet they are still very backward in civ- 

Sarly KlcTatloa 
When Europeans first came to tht 
country, they found the Hottentot and 
Bushmen tribes In the extreme south- 
woKt. Tne Bnntu in the south and 
east, and the Negro in the west and 
centre. Just where the original home 
of the black man was located is a ques- 
tion. Some try to prove by linguistic 
similarity that their early home was in 
one of the peninsulas of Southern Asia. 
Others think they originated in Africa. I 
am Inclined to favor the latter view. It 
is generally conceded at lea."it that In 
the earlv centuries all the tribes mi- 
grated from a common centre arounri 
the Great Lakes in East Central 
But they must have separated many 
centuries ago, for today there Is very 
little similarity In language between .the 
Negroes of the west and the Bantu of 
the south. The Bantu have many dif- 
ferent dialects, but in grammatical con- 
struction they are all soinewhat similar. 
Not 30 when comparing Bantu with 
Negro. The language of the Bu.shmcn 
and Hottentot is somewhat similar to 
that of the Neigro, and it Is therefore 
supposed that they separated from the 
tribes of the west, after their migration 
frbm the east, though they mtist have 
come to their southern home centuries 
ago. The Bantu tribes migrated south- 
ward about the fifteenth century, and It 
was there In what is known as Gape 
- rovlnce that the whU* man found 
ih»m, under the leadership of Mzlllkazl, 
returned nortb^'ii'"d and formed the nuc- 
leus of the present Matabele tribe of 

Primitive lilfe 

In regard to their manner of life, it 
may be said that the Bushmen was 
content with a cave for a house; the 
Hottentot constructed huts of slender 
poles with loosis portable mats thrown 
over them; the Bantu built huts of poles 
and clay thatched with grass or reeds. 

The BushiTien. practiced but one art 
— that Of painting; and today their pic- 
tures of elephants, snakep. leopards, 
giraffes, and other anlnial.«i painted on 
the rockfi, in tavos, over different parts 
of South Africa are stlU preserved. 
The Hottentot.^ rn.ide ve.'i.sel.s of clay and 
knew something of working in Iron. The 
Bantu were somewhat skilful in both 
these arts. It Is interesting to watch a

Dr. Morse's Indian Root Ptils 
Heated Mr. Wilson's Sores 

When the sewers of the body — howcls, 
kidneys and skin ducts — get clogged up, 
the blooiJj quickly becotr.T;s impure and 
frequently sores break out over the body. 
The way to heal them, as Mr. Richard 
Wilson, who lives near London, Ont., 
found, is to purify the blood. He 

"For some time I had been in a low, 
depressed condition. My appetite left 
me and I soon began to fiifTer from indi- 
gestion. Quite a numt>er of small sores 
and blotches formed all over my skiu. 1 
tried medicine for the blood and used 
many kinds of ointments, but without 
satisfactory rcs-iUs. What was wanted 
was a thorough cleansing of the blood, 
and. I looked about in v.iin for some medi- 
cine that would acc'implish this. 

At last Dr. Morse's Root Pills 
were brought to my notice, and they arc 
one of the most wonderful medicines I 
have ever known. My blood was puri- 
fied in ^ very short time, sores healed up. 
my indigestion vanished. They always 
have a place in my horns and are looked 
Upon as the family remedy," 

Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills cleanse 
the system thoroughly. Sold by all

Beware of Ointments for Catarrh That 
Contain Morcury 

As Mercury will surely destroy the sense 
of smell and completely derange the whole 
system when entering It through the 
mucous surfaces. Such articles should never 
be used except on prescrU'tlons froirt repu- 
table physicians, as the damage they will 
do Is ten-fold to the pood you can -possibly 
derive frotn them. HalTs Catarrh Cure, 
manufactured by F. J. Clheney and Co.. 
Toledo, Ohio, contains no mercury nnd Is 
taken Internally, acting directly upon the 
blood and rnucous surfaces of the s.vstem. 
In buying HnU's ^'a:arrh Cure be sure you 
get the genuine. It Is t.aken Internally and 
made In Toledo. Ohio, by F. J. Cheney aud
