Hnrdly looks righl, does il? .It would never happen in the country, whence Canada is supposed lo gel ils political example. There arc'I wo reasons why llierc will not be an election in 191-1. One is the hope lhal lime may remove lhal grand old leader, Sir "Wilfrid Laurier, from the direction of the Liberal forces. The other is the hope thai good crops and a sql- llemenl of the world iinresl may disperse the financial gloom. Two .very good reasons Ihey acroei lots ud waft to lie centre lovn, especially when tliey llyc m a ddzeu blocks. They do this be- cause tbey. can walk' more quickly than they can ride..
