While Canadian life in many phases is like life in the I'nited States,
there are some po'" of difference. One la illustrated by an affair that
has been agitating the public mind in Ottawa. A Greek confectioner,
who had been selling n't? cream and ice cream sh1 oh Sunday, was
called to account for hU crime, and he offered in defenr-e that he had a
restaurant license entithng him to sell foods, and that ice cream was
food. This subterfuge was sustained by court, but the press of Ottawa
indignantly demanded the revocation of his license. We, however, are
proud of our liberty and the excellence of
