Beating rugs and chairs, by jing. takes tin' beauty out of Spring. -•DRV LAWS HERE TO STAY,” SAYS SEATTLE DAILY TIMES The Seattle Daily Times, one of the most widely read and influential pa pers of the west coast, was formerly not in favor of prohibition and fought the proposition with its full power clear to the bitter end. However, having seen the effects of prohibitio 1 and studied the question from various angles, the Times declares that "1’ro h biton's here to stay, no matter how some may rage against if.” In a lead ing editorial of recent date the Times voices its convictions in the following terse and telling language: "A new association lias been formed j which proposes to 'get the Volstead act repealed, to permit every state to pass its own enforcement act, to then remove the prohibition amendment from the Constitution.’ • To borrow a phrase from the slang of the day, 'that's some contract.’ "If the organization confined itself solely to repeal of the Volstead act, it would be mapping out for itself a tight that probably would last as long as the patience or the purse of those who might be willing to back it. “it has indicated a program which, if consistently pursued, might be a< coniplished in a couple of generations, always provided the sentiment of the minority that opposed prohibition re mained as it is now—which, of course, will not he the case. "Efforts to repeal the Volstead act. to say nothing of the prohibition amendment, are about as vain as any thing that may he imagined. The fact i- that foes of this policy are facing an accomplished fact, just as the South faced an accomplished fact when slavery was abolished in the | I'nited States. i "Already, the country's destiny is j partially in the hands of a body of I voters who have reached maturity j under prohibition or partial prohibi tion. The men of less than twenty live who have spent all their lives in communities where saloons were permitted are few by comparison with those who were reared in ‘dry’ or par tially 'day' territory. ‘ The association mentioned avobe, with its pretentious program, appeals only to a small part of the electorate —and most of that composed of men nearly or past middle age. Before It could get Congress to do anything, those who would be setting the pace, in Washington as elsewhere, would he individuals who had grown up under prohibition and had come to accept it as the settled order of tilings. “Prohibition's here to stay, no mat ter how some may rage against it. Moreover, it’s going to be observed much more generally in future, not so much because of rigid enforcement as because the demand for intoxicants will diminish. “The ‘dry’ leaders who regard the craze for home brew with calm toler ance are wiser students of human na ture than the 'antis,' who really think they can repeal the prohibition amend ment."—I'nion Signal.

It calls for great ex penditure in the wav of railway resioi.iants, dinmg cars and ships and wi.se judgment in selecting he various items of food as well as the men who shall cook and serve it. The day when the average trav eler prepared for a railway jour ney by packing a capacious lunch basket and when the lower class ccean voyagers carried ah ard shit) greet hampers of food. >? within tlie m.uuu.y of mu...,, lo day the lunch basket is rather the j exception, all classes of travelers! patronize the dining car and the restaurants and lunch rooms en- j route, while ship passengers, even unto the third class, expect to sit down to tables on which every '•on-! ceivahle food will be ■ erved. To glean some conception of w hat quantities of food are re-1 quired to feed travelers, we may j take mie road for an illustration, i The Canadian Pacific Railway’s dining cars traverse over llbJOO miles of rail. In order to provide necessary facilities for this im mense mileage, it requires 15<> dining, cafe and buffet cars, beine a larger number than operated by any other company in the world. In addition to the above folding facilities, the Company operates 34 Lunch Counters situated at the more important terminals, where light refreshments, tea, coffee and all kinds of beverages such as ping t n’<> noarnfor* water:;. e*e may Pc obtained when trcins stop for change of engines. In the larger cities such as Montreal. Moose Ja / and Vancouver, in .d dition ti the lunch counters, com modbus, well appointed dining I rooms are operated, the one in Montreal having a capacity for! 350 guests. It requires a staff of I over 1.500 stewards, cooks, \ alt ers, storemen and checkers to op erate these immense facilities,! where over 3 Vs million meals are! served each year. To serve the large number of meals require* the yearly consumption cf the t'>1 lowing ouantities of supplies.

During the summer, 3 diner start from Montreal every day fo Vancouver, a distance of nearb 2,900 miles. In the course of tht journey 11 meab are served en route, and these to an average o/ 100 persons per meal. There are long stretches during this run when it is impossible to obta.r supplies, so the superintendent must see to it that the ice-boxes and larders of each diner ore stocked to satisfy the capricious appetites of the tiavelers it serves. The ocean steamers must stock up with tons of food.
