The shares in question Are those of a great British ordnance Trust which has been consolidated by the Genius of the Secretary of the Kirton galloping gun company who sees his Way to a Combine of All such. Concerns. The crisis begins with the Fai lure of a Bank and disaster is averted by the declaration of War. Bankers company promoters and distinguished military men who lend their names in the capacity of Guinea Foliga All have their place in this Clever gallery of contemporary portraits but the Central figure is that of John March whose fortunes Are traced from his Nursery and school Days till he finds him self High on the tide of commercial Success. The pictures of childlike Are distinctly Well done no Over intricate analysis of psychic Phenomena or elaborate sentimental izing such As some writers seem to think demanded in the treatment of this theme but Crisp simple narrations of events that would linger in the boy s memory or even if they faded go towards the moulding of his character.

So in Ivanhoe a Beautiful Oak Forest. Sir Walter Scott. Sir Walter Scott was one of nature s novelists. He come vied a Nie of his work Riding along the renal pc and the spirit of nature seemed to enter into it. The dainties of his descriptions is that of Flora s Bell in it reminds me of dewdrops glistening on Grin in the Crisp Cool morning. In the lady of the Lake there is the wonder and Beauty of in a Katrine word painted with a most delicate touch la the Talisman the burning arid deserts and in Ivanhoe the Green charming Woods of England Are brought before us.

No. Of words i2s. Sir Walter Scott. Not being a great Reader of novels especially those of the present Day 1 am in no position to answer this question in its broadest sense. The old writers have always held me with their Charm their attractions being such that As yet i have had but Small Leisure or inclination for the novels of our own time. Speaking therefore from such a standpoint i consider that Scott deals with nature in a Way scarcely to be sur passed by writer of Lici Iun. Ilia dominant passion was the love of the years of his life were spent in visiting the most favoured spots of nature which a has reproduced in Liis books in a delightfully realistic style. The grand Highland scenery introduced in and so Many of the companion novels alone will show the Way in which Scott was capable of j dealing with nature. He has depicted lick in Lier most varied moods his word painting being such As to Charm and impress his readers. Scott loved nature therefore Olio More capable of writing of Bennett 179 words. Ralph Connor. Trio novelist who i think has most Success fully dealt with nature is Ralph Connor in those Well known books of american Forest life Glengarry men in Glengarry Days and the ski the Canon in the latter is surely unsurpassed among descriptions. I consider it the Best word picture i have Ever seen and the wonderful forests with their Snow capped paths and weird loneliness Are marvellously portrayed in the Glengarry books. One Longs to visit the locality and View their Beauty and somehow imagines the residents As simple hearted hospitable Ideal men and women immense like their environments and altogether Superior to the Ever Vav people constantly met. The lights and shadows in these graphic representations seem to me blended More artistically than in Mary Johnston s Boks which Are Wyva forests hut not so vividly Sij m a.\.

Linehan tells in his own ivors How or. Williams Pink pills cured him after All the lotions and common backache medi Cines had failed. A few years ago i suffered untold agony with a bad Back says or. Line Ian. It started after malarial fever. Every change in the weather started it aching. I would be doubled up with Sharp shooting pains that gripped me right in the Small of the Back and across the loins. When i stooped Down. I Felt As if i could have cried with the awful Pynie. Gradually my whole health broke up. My nerves collapsed. My stomach went Back on me and i could digest nothing. Everything disagreed with me. Fits of dizziness would come Over me and my heart would beat like mad. My head ached nearly As bad As my Back. My feet used to get icy cold and my face flushed.

As Komi of tie most notable men of the Vic Torian Era x have chosen from a political stand Point Disraeli and Gladstone As a writer Charles Dickens explorers h. M. Stanley Anil Ilc Doull Stuart and an inventor Edison. Benjamin Disraeli Burn in London 1805, was a novelist and statesman. He presented himself for election into the House 1 f commons several times before being successful. In 1&7 his desire was attained. He delivered Liis Maiden free Eli in a very High flown sly. With extravagant gestures which excited the laughter of tie House lie was so much Dis eing an elaborate work on Homer and the Homeric age in three volumes. He carried several treaties and reforms through parliament which proved to be very much for the Good of Tho country. These two political men have helped greatly in making Tho Laws of England what they Are to Dav.

Stanley and Mcdouall Stuart. Without explorers there would be no need of politicians or writers because lands would Baun explored and the inhabitants uncivilized. Stanley Well known As the discoverer of Livingstone whilst he was lost explored a great Deal of the Interior of Africa afterwards writing a Book of his travels called in darkest Stuart an austra Lian explorer is not perhaps so widely known but had he not crossed our continent from South to North we should not have keen in touch with the Mother country As we Are to Day namely by Cable. It was through Liim exploring South Australia from Adelaide to port Darwin that the Overland Tele graph was Laid by which route the cables Are sent to London. Last but far from least Cgraef the inventor Edison who although not an eng Lishman has helped England and her people As much As is own country. Where would Busineau people be without the Telephone with which they can talk to people Many Miles away As if they were present this seems to me to have been the most useful of his inventions although such things As Hie electric Light have necessities now. Still had they never been invented we could have managed without hem. Just19 marvellous As the Telephone seems the phonograph i which can reproduce any song or speech suns or spoken into it and the electric Light which can be obtained by merely pressing a Button and As a Light a second to none.
