A visitor from -S -otiand to the Toron
to conference said a great many people
In his country regarded Canada as "the
Icing on the American p'.um-case." Less
poetic than the cuaracter'zatioc. "Our
Lady of Sorrows." the description of
the I-ominion yet appeals to the imag
ination of the epicure. The visitor
added the sirciiicant remark that he
believed Cacad.ans themselves had a
treat share of the cake.
One of the most sensible moves in
connection with the army is the pro
posed change in uniforms. Kahkl has
been found by British experience in
South Afr.ca to be too light, so the
proposition is to dress our soldiers in a
working garb of olive-drab that is hard
to distinguish at a distance from their
environment of trees, haze and earth.
The change proposed is practical and
businesslike, but. aiasl what becomes
of "the boys in blue?"
The art of retracting without taking
anything back if the bull may be al

A young orator at a political meet
ing called a public official a thief, a
policeman on duty gravely rose and ad
dressed a remark in a low tone to the
speaker, who thereupon said: "The
chief of police requeaw me to retract
the word which I have just spoken, al
though the word of a sage should never
re-enter, let us make a concession: let
ns take back the word and keep the
Idea." Great applause and cries of
"Bravo" greeted the orator's escape

is summed up in the phrase, "one ia

only when provocation comes from

martial ardor is encouraged to the

The doctrine of anarchy is like
a foul plague which, bem;
in un -iean and impure surround
ings, is liable to spread and em
urace the gviod and pure as well
as the fciiby aud unciean.
Born in countries which give
to their people few or no political or so
cial rights, a revolt against unlimited ty
ranny on the part of rulers, it does not
discriminate between such g -Ternmeuts
. and those in which the people themselves
I make and execute their iaws and enjoy
! the fullest measure of liberty.
Its aim is not to correct the evils of
government, bu: to destroy ail govern
i men:. It would not only reform anuses.
but would do away with the virtues and
i benehts of all good government and so
I ciety. It would bring social chaos upon
! the worid and would reduce human so
, ciety to a condition where mere brute
' force would reign triumphant.
, No country in the wond is more seri-

j none has less occasion for social upheaval

High Art and Low Theft.
From time to time we hear of son
melancholy connection between grst
literature and nettv larceny. Such a
case is brought to the public notice by
Mrs. Lewis in the Expository Timf.
Leaf 101 of the Lewis Syriac nalimpsen
has disappeared from the library of the
monastery on Mount Sinai, savs the
Loudon Academy. Mrs. Lewis gives a
fac simUe of it and says that she mis
it at Mount Sinai last February, bat
the monks had already discovered their
loss. "I was Informed that a party 01
several scholars had worked for urn
time at that MS. during the course of
last summer, and !t is safe to suppo
that a fair number of passing traveler
had been permitted not only to look at
it, but also to handle it. Aly surmise h
that one of these latter, wishing t
make an addition to lik own coCectioo
of curios, had slipped tie leaf betweea
the pages of a book la the fond belief
that It would never be mis-sed.
The man who knowingly injures a four
teenth century codex of the Gospeo
commits an act of sacrilege. M
Lewis wishes the purloiner to retura
the lost leaf to her. In wbi'-b case It
will be replaced In the codex and
questions will be asked.
Buried Towns.
Italy Is not the- only country that
can boast of Its buried towns and Til
lages, says the People's Friend.
Scotland there are the Culhin Sand,
covering a large tract of country, o
der which many dwellings lie entomb
ed; while In Ireland there is the
cient town of Bannon, situated in
once fertile tract between W exford Wj
Waterford. as effectually covered
with sand as ever Pompeii Tra1
