El Paso, Tex., bee. Wl J. Bryan left Galveston this morning for Port Arthur, -Texas, the home of John W. Gates, .where he delivered his "Prince of Peace" lecture to- night.

London, Dec. short time ago I was present at the funeral of a doctor under whom I had nursed, says a writer in the Nursing Mirror. It took place at the Manchester Cre- matorium, and, as it was the first cremation I had attended, I was nat- urally very much interested. We ar- rived some time before the mourners, so that we had .plenty of opportunity to look around us. The place was very much .like a small church, and will seat about one hundred persons, chairs were placed in rows down either side, leaving a broad aisle down the centre. There was an organ built in. a gallery over the entrance. On the walls on either side were a num- ber of small marble slabs bearing the names of persons .who had been cre- mated. At the east end of the church there was a raised platform, on which was a bier .draped in black.

It requires no tell how the agricultural community has been drained of its best blood. The enormous possibilities of the West have led to the desertion of On- tario by hundreds of men, other- wise would have been successful On- tario farmers. Another factor has been, the drifting into the cities, tak- rages investigation, and which, in "f Agriculture of the Gov-j j turn, gives man a real love for his work.

ANNEX TO CANADA. London, Dec. Symons, K.C., Toronto, writes the Press sug- that the Barbadoes and pos- sibly the whole of the West Indies, should unite with Canada. The sug- gestion is viewed with considerable interest here. Thei problem involved is by no means one that is confined to .Ontario. In. G-reat Britain the question of reat- tracting people to the land has occu- pied the attention of Government af- ter Government. Fundamentally the cause of the trouble is the same. Un- less a man is imbued with a great love of nature, life on the farm will appall Mm by its apparent grey mon- otony. Having that love, however, lie will find his Ufe full of the deepest interest. THE STUDY OF NATURE President Crecltnan, in one of his addresses, struck the right note when he pleaded for the introduction into the educational system of the country of that type of instruction which should create an interest in the child in the wonders of nature.

New Y.ork, Dec. light blue cradle built in Hungary, and in- tended originally for otie, passed through the Barge Office yesterday j afternoon. In the cradle, quiet as new born kittens, were two babies. The .mother, Mrs. Marie Lesser, held one end of the cradle, and another Hungarian woman immigrant gripped the other. The babies are twins., and were born aboard the steamship Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm, from Bremen. The father is a mechanic in a fac- tory at Manchester, and has bei-ii in America only three months. He sent hi? wife prepaid tickets 1o his now home. She suspected that slu- might 'become a mother on the trip, and so got the village carpen- ror'tu make her a cradle, as she did not want, the thought ;t was going to be one have only the cradle of the deep to rockra. The second day out the twins came and were attended to by the ship's surgeon without expense tho mother. Also the. sympathetic .ship's company contributed a purse to the twins, and the who is young and vigorous, and got on her feet in a few days, felt mighty glad that tUert1 were more than one.

His Honor said that he could never have conceived such a state of af- fairs as had been revealed. by ths libels'and evidence even thus far in the case, and lie thought it would be much better for Mr.' and Mrs. Cur- rey to; get together, presentatives to meet and arrange some terms for separation such as laid clown by law, because if it be- came his painful duty to decide these things the' feelings of both parties would probably be terribly 'damaged.
