The limitation of naval armaments by ayreement among the nations, is considered by Sir Arthur to be an insreclient-of world peace. "The suc- cess of the League of Nations." ho says, "'has not been conspicuous, yot even its sharpest critics will admit J tii.it it has aroused an international! sense which has hitnerto been Kick-j ing in the-councils of the world. "There now seems to he an oppor- tunity for a further step. The limita- tion of naval armaments has been proposed on both sides of the Atlan- tic almost simultaneously. Statesmen of higU repute have advised their countries to seek the adoption of this step and the temper of the public in thew countries in mani- festly in favor of adoption." Mr. Ashdown aays "To continue the rivalry in naval construction'is simply to prepare tho way for disastrous conflict such as the world has just passed through and would in my opinion, be the height of madness for all con- cerned. "The British navy has always been a protection to the United States; the two coun'trlm are one in language and should be one in helping to hold the cMHaation the world." WINNIPEG.

It was ordinary and yet extraordinary. It was life as 'it is embroidered in the appeal it made by the delicacy of the acting. Through- out the play there was a rich vein of comedy, exemplified in a striking scene in which a search .was made for a latchkey. Miss Eva Moore and Mr. H. V. Es- mond lived up to the. reputation thay have made in the theatrical world, and they were very skilfully aided, by the clever actors aud actresses who made up the rest of the cast. It was a splendid piece of acting throughout. The interest was never allowed to flag. The pity of It was that a play of this kind had the experience of playing to a very slim house, the smallest which the company have played to during their present Canadian tour. It fully deserved a bumper house, and it should get it tonight, when it will be presented again, if the patrons of the Majestic have the wish to see a reully good piece when the opportunity 'is given. It is seldom that' such an op- portunity occurs in the presentation of a play of such decided t full of interest aud entertainment, as Law Divine."

What a terrible sensation followed when it did and for w23ks every time something went wrong at homo or there was a business reverse, thd poor kitty came in for all the blame. It was back ill the Sixteenth Cen- tury, according to a learned historian of Rhode Island, that the superstition of the black cat fable was introduced. A clergyman was returning from his church after the Sunday evening ser- man and he carried with him the day's offering of the congregation. A black cat darted in front of him, without warning, and as the story goes, ten steps later he was felled when 3 heartless bandit attacked him. The victim was robbed and the assailant fled. And all of this wits attributed to the act of the harmless feline. History repeats itself iu Douglas Fairbanks' current "Big Four" pro- ui'.ctinn, "When the Clouds Roll which will be shown at the .Empress theatre on Monday. Doug is not a clergyman and he is not attacked by a thug, but a black cat crosses his path. Does he worry and fret.over it? No, he just tightens his mus'cles and squares himself for a mighty attack on this annoying superstition, and smiles at the original fable.
