MY Yeomans of "Ward Two; James Simpson, the well- known labor leader; Leslie" Itooke. business manager of the Home Journal, and Mr. Phillips. Nineteen years ago, tlio four of them were boys, they began to sing together, finally mustering up suffi- cient courage, to take part in large public entertainments. It was not long until they were singing at Mas- sey Hall concerts, and they visited nearly all the towns and cities around Toronto. They regarded it (is rather a remarkable thing that-they were able to stick together for almost a ECOTG of years.

There was never if. more popular or open- 1 hearted man in Eastern Ontario than "Senator Corby. His sifts to his native city have been many and generous. Among them may bn mentioned a. pub- lic park and one of the finest-equipped Public buildings in Canada. j There were no stringent stipulations 1 in any of his donations to the munici- string attached thut so much inonfiy must be raised by tlio citizens before the offer took effect, etc. Of t a Denial disposition anil affable man- jcr, "Harry" Corby, who practically j knew everyone In his riding, never stopped for an introduction when- he West Hastings he always carried the Beat hands down, and it was difficult to get a standard-bearer to oppose him. Aa a campaigner and organizer, he has few equals. Ho always Im- bued his followers with tho of work, work, work, until tho last .vote was cast on polling day. On. tho night previous to each election, .Mr. Corby would hold rousing meetings in the opera houses at Trenton, auu Itelle- ville, which wore the chief centres of tihfiire tho riding was ex- tended north. ,'Tho Candida to would 6peak at both places the Manic evening, driving from one point to the other.

Remember, our opponents are not asleep. It's the last lap that counts the most Keep your efforts up for just twenty-four hours longer, and we will have a-magnificent di-monstration right here to-morrow night. I want everybody to come." Could such an appeal be restated? It was electrifying on the eve of battle. Jlr. Corby resigned.his seat In the Commons in 1901. owing to ill-health, and was succeeded by Mr. K. Porter, the able Belleville lawyer. Of late years, the newly-created Senator has spent much of his time traveling, and to-day feels better than ho' haa for many years. PRINCE AS AUTHOR HM1E Crown Prince.of Germany has written a hook anent his hunting experiences in Britain and India. He recalls them with evident pleasure, and throughout he adopts a very" ap- preciative attitude. He was particu- larly Impressed with country house life and English hospitality, as the fol lowing excerpt shows: "These English country houses are, to my taste, the most elegant and at the same time the most eomfortablr "laces imaginable. In ray 'Indian sketches I have already paid tribute to the wonderful hospi- tality of the. Briton, and 1 should like to mention it again now.

Patricia promised Dean Doull that she would return In tho afternoon and take one of the classes In the Sunday School. She did so and was given charge of a class of young girls from six years' upwards. The topic was the first verse of Hymn 4J7 of the Hymn Book, well known to all Eng- lish Church people by its first line, "Brightest and best of the sons of the morning." There are four lines to the first verse of the hymn, the last j one reading "Guide where our Infant. Redeemer is laid.' Princess Patricia managed to secure "answers from the children us to the meaning of "the first three lines of the verse, but whe i she asked" what was, the meaning of the words, "Our Infant there was an absolute si- lence on the port of ihe pupils. "Surely." .said 'the Princess, "some of you know what these words mean came the answer from one of the children. "I know, it means our Bishop." And It Is said that Princess Patricia Is telling ihe story Jiersolf as an ii lustration of tlie influence of Bishop Roper In his diocese.

Big fleas, little fleas, medium sined ones, fleas with spots and fleas without 'em. The Hon. Charles Rothschild, son of the late Lord Rothschild, and a member of the richest family in the world, loves them all and has resolved 'his life into one grand song whereof the refrain is fleas, fleas, fleas. In the zoological museum owned by his brother, Wr.ltor' Rothschild, at Thrfng, a little town In Herefordshire, thirty miles from Charles Rothschild wanders among his flea cabinets, gloating over his rare speci- mens, planning the capture of more. For flftuen years he has pursued fleas persistently, internationally, paying large sums or small sums to achieve his desire, until now his fjeu collection ranks as the greatest in the world.

Uncle Thomas has retired from farming 'life and Coboconk-. Ha now resides on one of our.moat ad- vantageous side streets.
