Since the of nt'ttro voters in practically all of the c-x-shive states there iias been a gra- dual tendency, through the Associat- ed Press to so phrase all reports con- c-rning incidents in a manner inlL-nded to mould a .sentiment that will maintain national dignity and liarmonizr with the Declaration ol In- dependence everything from "a sena- tor slappintr a waiter on down to burn in? human beings and collecting their bones as pocket souvenirs. 1 With the large influx of American immigration into Alberta it is only natural that more or less space be u> press news of interest to these people. News from all parts of the world is essential to the suc- cess of any wide awake paper, and since- the average American secreth cherishes the dream that in ihe near future Canada will kneel at Uncle Sams feet and cry out, "Take me as i a little comment on some 01 tin's Associated Press matter dished out "a-la-American" would not make an unhappy mixture for the literary diet of the Canadian whose Sundays desecrated by an, occasional out- burst of enthusiasm of the brother so of the great men who declared that all men were born with certain unalienable rights, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Having had wile years experience on dining cars erving drunken politicians, also hav ing witnessed one or two barbecues where senate oratory was having too strenuous effect on the descendants of the unhappy slave whose only crime was to till the soil and render national development possible, and to become the butt of abuse and hat- red after developing sufficient intel- ligence to demand pay for labor. I am happy to undergo the hardships of homestead life and build a home in a land whose mother country pur- chased her slaves' liberty and ever since respected them as citizens with equal rights. I have drifted however from the ingredients of the article I I proposed turning, the x-rays on. The j dining car service on the Pennsyl- j vanin limited trains is ihe most effi- cient on the continent, and whether Stone or any other mossback from the Ozark mountain district of Missouri could discern an article from their "bill" with correct condiment? is a serious question in my mind. I think tlie salve spread by lobbyist during tlie recent tariff crisis coupled with tlie homage of those mountain poli- ticians at home, probably had the same effect as the drink he ordered. i Hence his sudden outburst of "Sou- them chivalry.'1 At any rate Senator Stone advised in a public speech that the Democrats of West Virginia shoot i I negro Republican voters. His ven- I onions attitude toward negro citizen- ship places him well up in Ben Til- man's gallery. The fact that he con- cluded not to prosecute a corporation for slapping one of its attendants j when told to wait his proper turn is an abnormal development of his generous nature. The overtures made to him through the corporation representa- tives show the 'undying affection which has been known to exist for some time between the corporations and the U. S. Senate. Notwithstanding ing these facts it is quite gratifying to note these "black dogs" are doing a few things, such as" writing text books used in Yale College., con- ducting the largest industrial school in the world. The potato king of America is one of them. They are continually carrying off honors from colleges, art galleries, and in fact have made greater intellectual, indus- trial, and financial progress in fifty years' time than any race America possesses. And in the face of court opinions of the character passed out in this case.. Thanking you for your space. J am. Gratefully Your? L. D.

For an average of seven tons of coal to an eight- roomed house, an even tem- perature of sixty-five to seventy can be kept 4ip from October to April. Once a Sunshine Furnace is started there is no work attached to its operation beyond placing in coal twice a day, and drawing out ashes and filling water pan every other day. Chains on a pulley fixed in the hall, or room above the cellar, answer the respective requirements Burning Up, or Closing Off. No caretaker is necessary, no engineer has to be called in. No 'precautions, beyond following directions, are necessary. If you can run a stove (and who cannot) you can run a Sunshine Furnace.

The care of it waa no small part of the. doty of Lepage, the king's French body servant. His majesty's manners were dignified, but not formal. The warmth of greeting which he, bad prepared for Sophy was evidently increased by the impression her appearance made on him. He thanked her in terms of almost over- whelming gratitude. "You have preserved the future of my family and of our ha said. Countess Ellenburg closed her long, narrow eyes. Everything about her was long and narrow, from her eyes to her in on the way her nose and her chin. Stenovics glanced at her with a smile of uneasy propitiation. It was so particularly important to gracious just both over the preservation of the dynasty and over its preserver. "No gratitude can be too great for such a service, and no mark of grati- tude too high." He glanced around to Markart and called good humoredly, "You. Markart there, a chair for this Markart got a chair. Stenovics took it from him and himself prepares to offer It to Sophy, but the king rose, took it and, with a low bow, presented it to the favored object of his grati- tude. Sophy courtesied low; the king twaited till she sat Countess Ellenburg stowed on be. hee a smile of win- try congratula- tion. "But for you these fellowi might, or, rath- er, would, I think, have kill- ed my son in their blind drunkenness. It detracts In no way from your service that they did not know w h o tn they were attacking." There was a moment's silence. phy was still nervous in such company. She was also uneasily conscious of m most intense gaze directed at her by General Stenovics, but she spoke out "They knew perfectly well, slit Sophy covntsted low.

'They may have been drunk, but they knew the prince. Captain Mis- titeh called him by bis "Stenorlcsl" The ktag's voice was full of surprise and question as turned to his minister. Tbe general was surprised, too. bat very suave. "I can only say that I hear Mile. Gruche's wods with astonishment Our accounts are not consistent wltk what she says. We don't, of COUTM, the dark the difference of uniform would not be noticed, especially by men in their condition." He addressed Sophy: "Mistitch had an old quarrel with Stafnite. That's the true orffia of the affair." He turned to the again. "That is Rastatz's story, sir, as well as Mistitch's own, though Mistitcli is, of course, quite aware that his most unseemly and, indeed, criminaTtalk at the Golden Lion seriously prejudices his case. But we have no reasoa to distrust Rastatz." "Lieutenant Rastatz ran away only because he was Sophy re- marked. "He ran to bring help, Stenovics corrected her, with a look of gentle reproach. "You were naturally he went on. "Isn't it possi- ble that your memory has played yon a trick? Think carefully.

In evident concern and excitement Stenovics contented himself with a bow of obedience. The king rose and ;ave Sophy his hand, "We shall hope to see you again he said very graciously. "Mean- while General Stenovics has something to say to you in my name which will, I trust, prove agreeable to you." His eyes dwelt on her face for a moment RS she took her leave. Stenovics made his communication later in the day, paying Sophy the high compliment of a personal visit at the sign of the Silver Cock for that pur- pose. His manner was most cordial. Sophy was to receive an honorary ap- pointment hi the royal household at an annual salary of paras, or some MOO. "It isn't aren't very rich In it will, I hope, make you comforts hie and relieve you from i the tiresome lessons which, Markart tells me. you're uow burdened with." Sophy was duly grateful and asked what her appointment was. "It's purely he smiled. "You are to be keeper of the tapes- tries." i "I know nothing about Sophy, "but I dare say I can learn.
