Whole streets of Hats, in some ;: ses.
have been constructed, and have b.-eii
taken by eager tenants even Itefore the
buiMers had vacated them. Indeed, an
inquirer for flats the other day. wi:o
was willing to pay a very fair resit for
very modest requirements, discovered
that, unless he could speedily make up
his mind to take the unfinished article,
he had no chance at all of inhabiting
the article when it was finished, so very
much greater was the demand than the
supply. That the supply is making gi
gantic strides to overtake the demand is
evident to any one who has lately
watched the building operations in our
streets, and the gradual rise of great
blocks of red brick bearing the prema
ture inscription, "Residential flats to be
let." On the whole, we do not think it
would be an exaggeration to say that,
whatever may have been the increase in
the number of houf es in the metropolis
during the last twenty-five years, the
number of flats must have increased
more than a hundredfold. Loudon
A I'oHtofHre Strike.
All the clerks in the postoffice at Van
couver, B. C. went out on strike Mon
day. . The trouble has been expected
for some time. The postoffice here is
"farmed" by the postmaster, who, by
keeping down salaries, makes $4,400 a
year, which is equaled by the salary of
only three postmasters in Canada. The
lady clerks have been getting $25 a
month, and one male clerk, married,
gets $35 a month. The clerks asked $40
for ladies and $50 to $70 for men, which
would leave the Mstmaster about $2,500
a year. Victoria's jvostmaster, being on
the civil service list, gets only $2,000 a
year. Postmaster Miller refused posi
tively when the scale was first pre
sented. Lady clerks are expected to
dress at least neatly, and how they can
do it on $25 a month and pay their own
board is a inystery.
The mail from the east today was
eight hours late, and the sight of the
big sacks and the thought of the China
mails to get ready tomorrow brought
the postmaster to time, and he agreed to
compromise. Cor. Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
How Papa Lost His Fish.
A prominent member of the Loom
Fixers' union went on a fishing expedi
tion Sunday, with good results. He
caught a nice mess of eels, which he
carried heme and placed in the sink,
intending to cure them after he looked
out for the interests of the inner man.
In the meanwhile his little son, while
amusing himself with papas game,
pulled up the sink lid and the eels one
by one glided silently into the depths of
of the sewer.
When papa- went to clean his fish he
found the boy with a lishline through
the sink, r.pparently angling.
Inquiry elicited the fact that the fish
had "runned away" and the diligent
son was trying to recapture them. New

"La Mere ilaniy,"the owner of "Cite

was an odd character among
many. Her husband, whose right hand
s!:e l:r.d been for thirty years past, aid
ing him in the sometimes difficult task
of keeping the "biffins" in order, died a
few weeks ago and, the ragpickers not
conducting themselves with proper re
spect at his funeral, "La Mere Maupy"
gave them notice to quit, one and all.
Her occupation gone. "La Mere Maupy"
tired of life and committed suicide a
few days ago by asphyxiation.
In her will she indicated that her
funeral should be a civil ceremony
purely, and that no chiffonniers should
be allowed to follow her coffin to the
grave. Pall Mall Gazette.
British Columbians for Independence.
The Hon. Wilfrid Laurier has declared
for independence. Had he done so long
ago he would not have to count defeat

of our political existence is nationhood,
and until it comes we are merely para
sites, who are treated as such abject
creatures deserve to be. We . are no

Consternation ' exists in several Span

increase of leprosy. In the town of

There are eight families in Benidorm

curiosity was excited to see if women
really dealt that way with one another,

of my observations been men instead of

The True Artist.
Henry Norman gives the following
instance of modest self estimate in th
case of a man who is one of the most
skillful and original artificers in the
world, and whose works are every where
This ivory carver sat in his little room,
open to his little garden, chiseling upon
a magnificent tusk, from which was
just emerging a very graceful female
figure. The ivory he held between hi -knees,
and the tools were spread out at
"How long will this take you?" 1
"About four months," he replied.
"And what is the proportion between
the value of the material and the value
of the labor in such a work as this when
"I paid $140 for this piece of ivory,"
Raid ho, and four months' work, at Ky
a month, is $200."
And this man was estimating his work
at less than forty American dollars a
month! His was the true artist's tem
perament, for he was willing to accept
only what would supply him with the
necessaries of life, dejendiiig for his
actual reward on the joy of seeking to
do a perfect work.
"Are you not very sorry sometimes,'
asked I, "to part with one of these works,
that have been companions and a part
of your life for so long?"'
He looked up for a minute at a great
white lily nodding above him in the
garden, and then gently shook his head.
"No," he said. "I expect the next to
be more beautiful still."
A Suggestion About Iinii-rs.
The next time you give a dinner give
a good one. Do not feel that because
you can afford it your dinner must con
sist of complex, mysterious, rich, indi
gestible dishes. No one wants them.
All men hate them. When a man goes
to a restaurant he never orders such a
medley for himself. He never wishes
them on his own table. Few women
care for them, and not one person in fifty
can digest them with comfort. Al
though such dinners are very common
in New York, they are not given be

There are many people in this city,
and happily the class is growing, who
have the good taste and courage to offei
a simpler dinner to their guests. Such
dinners can be as long and as dainty as
the most fastidious may desire, and they
are infinitely more satisfying. Try t
bear in mind that a dinner consisting of
complex and mysterious dishes is only a
development of American vulgarity.

They Agreed Then and After.
A Baptist minister took charge of a
parish near Boston where he knew that
one man was decidedly opposed to his
pastorate. Soon after his arrival the
Rev. Mr. X. called upon Mr. A.
"Brother," said he, "I hear that yon
think -1 ' am the wrong man to be the
pastor of this church."
"Well, to be frank," replied Mr. A. "I
do think that another would have filled
the place better."
"Now that is just what I think," said
the pastor. V'But as long as we hold this
opinion in opposition to the majority of
the parishioners, let's try to be unselfish
and make the best of it."
: After that call Mr. X. never had j
firmer friend nor more faithful cham
pion than Mr. A. Boston Herald.
Why Petrarch Is Remembered.
Petrarch thought it a disgrace th4
his verses should be sung in the streets,
and he regretted that he had written
anything in the vulgar tongue.' No on
now reads his Latin poetry, but every
reader of Italian is charmed with the
poems that attracted and suited the pop
ular taste, which is made kin by a touch
of nature, whether from the lyre or th
pen. Notes and Queries.
