TRAVELLING IN THE WEST A CENTURY AGO ~ (Continued from page 1) shoulders of the buffaloes, the hearts and the tongues were set apart for feasts, and the other parts were consumed as ordi nary food, or dried and sold at the fort. In April Henry and his companions re turned to their camp on Beaver lake where the main body of the party had wintered. The supply of fish was replenished and variety given to the camp-fare by shoot ing water-fowl, which, Henry says, cov ered several near-by lakes and rivers. Early in July the Indians began arriv ing with their winter-take of furs, and for several days the camp was like a fair, the trading going briskly on from morn ing to night. When the fair closed and the packs of furs were made up, it was found that the stock obtained from the In dians consisted of twelve thousand beaver skins, besides large numbers of otter and marten skins. The trading finished, Henry and one of the Frobisher brothers set out with their furs for Montreal, travelling, of course, by canoes. Montreal was reached on Oct ober 15. Henry had set out from the city on his trading expedition in August, 1761, and had been absent on this trip fifteen years and two months. Having returned to Montreal, Henry opened a store, and continued the fur trade. After a time he withdrew from this trade and engaged in business as a gen eral merchant. He was noted, not only for his dilligence in business, but also for his integrity and high character. To these qualities he was indebted for his ap pointment as King’s Auctioneer for the District of Montreal, which then com piised nearly one-half of the Province of Lower Canada. That position he retained until his death, which occurred at Mon treal on April 4, 1824. CZAR AND KAISER It seems strange that tfvo words so dif ferent in sound and spelling as czar and kaiser are the same. Both are but changes made in the course of nearly 2,000 years in the word caesar. Creamer All the Roman emperors took their title from the first emperor—our old friend of schoolboy days—Julius Caesar. When Charlemangne founded the holy Roman empire and was crowned emperor, he took the name caesar or, in the frankish form, kaiser. When the modern German em pire was established in 1871 the German emperor, William I, grandfather of the former kaiser, took the same title —kaiser. Similarly the rulers of the eastern em pire at Constantinople, successors to .the old Roman empire, called themselves cae sar. Every petty chieftain or prince in the territory surrounding the eastern em pire copied the custom and called himself caesar or czar. In the course of time, however, the greatest of these, the czar of Muskovv, conquered the other czars until he was the sole or practically the sole ruler called czar. However, the king of Bulgaria, when a few years ago he had himself crowned as king, took the title of czar.— Ex. In twenty years pulp wood has risen in cost 633 per cent. Its consumption in that period has increased nearly 160 per cent. In 1890 the pulp used for making paper was nearly 2,000,000 cords; in 1909 it ismounted to 4,000,000 cords. For the past five years the average consumption was 5,300,000. During the last nine years about 9,000,000 cords of pulp were im ported. The American Forestry Associa tion is urging the planting of forests to increase the production of wood for paper making.—Ex. WHAT IS A GENTLEMAN? What is a gentleman? Is it not one Knowing instinctively, what he should shun, Speaking no word that can injure or pain, Spreading no scandal and deepening no stain ? One who knows how to put each at his ease, Striving instinctively always to please; One who can tell by a glance at your cheek When to be silent, and when he should speak? What is a gentleman? Is it not one Honestly eating the bread he has won, Living uprightly, fearing his God, Leaving no stain on the path he has trod, Caring not whether his coat may be old, Prizing sincerity far above gold, Recking not whether his hand may be hard, Stretching it boldly to grasp its reward? What is a gentleman? Say, is it birth Makes a man noble, or adds to his vrorth? Is there a family tree-to be had Spreading enough to conceal what is bad ? Seek out the man who has God for his guide, Nothing to blush for and nothing to hide; Be he a noble or be he in trade, This is the gentleman nature has made. — Selected. SOMEBODY CARES “Nobody knows, —nobody cares, Nobody feels and no one shares The tide of grief which comes my way, Turning to night the fairest day.” Nobody cares? —O listen, friend, — You who are washing life might end: Somebody knows, yes Someone cares! Somebody feels it all and shares The weight of grief that fills your heart, Noting the tears that fain would start. Nobody cares? Oh, say not so, For One does care, and One does know! Somebody knows, —yes, Jesus cares, With you your sorrow-burden bears; Will you not drop it all on Him, Letting Him guide where sight is dim? Now He is longing to take control, Longs to give peace to your care-worn soul. Nobody cares?—Oh, lift your eyes "To Jesus, who can sympathize. To Him His every child is dear, And to each broken heart He’s near. Give it to Him—your aching heart, That peace and joy He may impart. Somebody knows, who suffered too— Suffered and died and lives for you. You cannot drift beyond His love, Pardon and hope await above; Friend, O look up,—no matter where, For Jesus knows, and He does care! —Pearl Waggoner Howard. ADVICE TO A FOREST O trees, to whom the darkness is a child Scampering in and out of your long green beards: O trees, to whom sunlight is a tattered pilgrim Counting his dreams within your hermi tage vi And slipping down the road in twilight robes : O trees, whose leaves make an incense of sound Reeling with the beat of your caught feet, Do not mingle your tips in startled hatred When little men conic to fell you. These men will saw you into strips Of pointed boarding dryly blind with paint, And trail the gray staccato of their lives Against a glaring maze of walls Much harder than your own. And when, at last, the deep grown gaze Of stolidly amorous time steals over you, And dustily riotous vagabond-days Brush their rags of sunlight over your sides, _ - The little men who bit into your hearts Will stray off in a patter of rabbits’ feet. Look down upon these rabbit-children then With the aloof and wistful tolerance That all still things possess, O trees, to whom the darkness was a child Scampering in and out of your long green beards. —M axvoeli Bo Jen hei m.
