there are some poluts of differtnee. One is illustrated by an affair that
has been agitating the public mind in Ottawa. A Greek confectioner,
who had betn selling ice cream and ice cream soda on Sunday, was

indignantly demanded the revocation of his license. We. however, are
proud of our liberty and the excellence of
