There is violent opposition among Canadians to the erection of a monument in Quebec to the memory of General Richard Montgomery, the American hero of revolutionary fame. Even the crude board sign erected three-quarters of a century ago near the cliff to mark the spot where Mont gomery fell, has been ordered re moved by the military department of Ottawa. lowed day with no effect other than tired legs and feet aching from con tact with unaccustomed pavements. Finally, with his last quarter in bisj noeket. he found a 'boy wanted" , sign ' in the window of a dry goods store and went in. Fortunately the place was open and the manager promised to give him a trial for one week at 3 per week. "Report 'tomorrow morning," was the cheering dictum, but hardly uttered before the young ster had hung his cap upon a con venient hook. "If you are willing," he said, respectfully enough, "l would rather begin now. I don't charge you anything for today, but I don't want to take any chances." The lively and very readable "Per sonal" column in Harper's Weekly tells an entertaining story about George Ade in the current issue. In 1852 George Ade's father, it appears, started a bank in Morocco, Indiana, a place of seventy-odd inhabitants. He called it "The Bank of North America." When Ade went out into the wilds of Chicago to seek his for tune he had to borrow some money from his parents. After a time one of his plays succeeded, and the father surreptitiously went to see it. Final ly, Ade returned to the paternal man sion and, after supper, took a roll of bills from his pocket and proudly an nounced his intention of repaying his loan. The old gentleman looked at the bills a moment, and then said: "George, how did you get that money?" "From my plays, of course!" "Well," slowly said the father, "you can keep it. I don't wan't it." (jJ tC tjC tt tjpC i5 8 5 Theodore Wallace Todd, 80, more than fifty years head of what is said to be the oldest business es tablishment in New York, died in that city recently. The firm of which he was the head until he retired five years ago was established prior to 1790. Mr. Todd belonged to one of the oldest New York families. His people have been prominent in the social, business and religious life of the city for two centuries. , Among his numerous surviving relatives is President Roosevelt. A Blenheim spaniel that had been the pet of General Daniel E. Sickles for three years, died of pneumonia last week, and had a ceremonious fu neral, being buried in an oak coffin with silver handles, and a silver plate on it bearing his name, "Bo-bo." The general and he were the only dwel lers in the house, 23 Fifth avenue, except the servants, and Bo-bo went with him everywhere, having his call ing card always attached to his mas ter's by a narrow ribbon. The card was inscribed "Master Bo-bo Sickles, assistant alderman," for he attend ed the sessions of the New York board of aldermen, General Sickles being a member thereof. Being so much talk ed to and petted, the tiny creature de veloped much intelligence, and he was devoted to his master lie would not eat if the general were not able to come to the table, but his appetite re turned when his master's did. He wore a gold collar in which a ruby John D. Rockefeller has purchased a wig. He. wore it at the Euclid Ave nue Baptist church recently. With his altered appearance he was scarce ly recognized. At the door he was welcomed heartily, as all newcomers to the church are, ana the invitation to attend the services was almost completed before it was discovered who the eminent personage with the steel-gray hair really was. Mr. Rock efeller took the matter with a smile and seemed not the least bit abashed. J & & J A Word With Yob About Subscription Cards During the month of May we arranged for a clubbing rate whereby five new subscribers could get The Independent for one year for $3.00. This is only 60 cents' for each new subscriber, shortly after arranging this clubbing rate many subscribers wrote us and suggested that five cards be sent to each subscriber, as both time and expense would be saved in that woy, and everyone, would then have an opportunity to help in the good work of ex tending the circulation and influence of The independent. Ac cordingly five cards were sent to every subscriber. At first August 1 was fixed as the limit when we would receive these cards for yearly subscriptions. Then by request of many of our readers the time was extended to September 1. Now we are receiving many letters asking whether these cards will still be re ceived. Also we are asked whether two or three cards or less than five will be received at the rate of 60 cents for each. The letters are too numerous to give individual response to and further we'must treat all our subscribers alike. We could not give one a better rate than another. We have, however, concluded that any or all of the cards now out we, will accept at the rate of 60 cents each. We will do this whether we receive them in clubs of five or whether we receive them singly. This, however, applies only to the cards, sent out under our special offer heretofore and will not apply to cards sent out hereafter. Those sent out here after will be 60 cents on condition that they are returned in clubs of five. It costs us about 60 cents for each subscriber to publish the paper. But we are not after large profits. We want a large circulation. ( We hope, therefore, to receive air the cards that are out with the names of new subscribers on them. Send them along as fast as you get them. The winter months are coming on and all your neighbors will want to read The Independent. We will send you sample copies upon request. Send us the balance of the cards with new subscribers. , . - THE INDEPENDENT 'J 'J J :& , & J.

As the famous editor of "Truth," Labouchere is both feared and admired. He writes away repu tations the bad ones with a single scrawl of his pen. He denounces no one until he has air the damaging facts in hand, very frequently backed up with affidavits. He "Lawsonized" certain stock jobbers and financial fakirs of London before the Boston ad vertising man was heard of. He has brought about more actual, needed re forms in England than any other sin gle individual; he, is a wholesome ter ror to evil-doers in society and has out-Sherlocked Holmes among the lowest types of London crooks. All the while he writes the purest Eng lish in a fascinating fashion ' and makes his weekly paper almost a nec essity in every cultivated household in the British empire.

Ryan, who paid $2,500. 000 for the privilege of trying to re establish the Equitable Insurance company, was a lad of 14 living with his grandmother in Virginia when the civil war ended. The estate had been devastated and there was not enough hoe-cake to go around. Consequently the boy had to go forth after the American fashion to seek his fortune. The great city in his imagination was Baltimore, and thither he journeyed as cheaply as possible. Having no friends or letters to friends of friends in the city, there was nothing to do but find a job for himself.
