Eighteen Hundred Young People Pro to as He Would Live on Earth. Cleveland, Jan. hun dred young people, delegates frorn three church societies, representing people, pledged themeelves and the other members of the organization tonight to live for two weeks as they believe Jesus Chriet would live were He on earth. The Eev. W. B. Wallace, pastor o the East End Baptist Church, leader of the movement, addressed the dele gates in the Epworth Memoria Church, and gave a few rules to fol low for living like Jesus. "No nobler example can a man choose than the man of sail the Rev. Dr. Wallace. "What wout Jesus have us do? Christ was a man of joy as well as a man of sorrow. H would have us lead a joyous life Learn to smile. Show your joy bj your hand clasp. Jesus would shak hands like a man, not .like a giraff were He here today. "Quit your, kicking. Go to wor with a word of cheer on your lips. B like a burst of sunshine. Don't g down to work ten minutes late sour Don't quit your wprk_ ten minute early with a sour face. "Jesus would have us be honest in business. 'There was no shoddy wor in Christ's carpenter shop. Letther be no shoddy work in your business When the temptation comes to be dis honest say no, no matter what comes Let us be honest in our speech, and in our social position. If you. ar> worth only fifty cents don't try to pass off for a dollar. For the uer two weeks let us pass for what ween described. Inside the delicatessen shop all was stir and activity. Mrs. Bloom .old how after she had been beaten and kicked Mr. and Mrs. Fames con- ugally seized her and inserted her, lead down, into a barrel that was half full of pickles. It was very unpleasant in the pickle barrel, she said, and moreover, while she was in that undesirable position, Mr. took an nngentleraanly ad- vantage of her plight to give her a severe spanking. Both the delicatessen dealer and his wife testified and said it wasn't least about the kicking, hit- ting and spanking. Mrs. Faroes in- on swearing that Mrs. Bloom had surely stolen the contorted loons 1 and I UtfEllows' Hock dr. iri lufferii Are you having: Photographic troubles? Call and we will help you.

All work finished inside of 3 days cheese. But none of the witnesses testified to finding any cheese in the possession of Mrs. Bloom, not even when Mrs. Bloom was in the pickle barrel. Morover Mrs. Fames could not remember what kind of cheese it was. Several witnesses testified to seeing the hitting, kicking and pickle barrel spanking, and thus it is scarcely strange that the jury gave a verdict for the hit, kicked and pickle barrel spanked Mrs. Bloom de- spite the fact that Mr. Fame's sister- in-law testified that Mrs. Bloom took Mrs. Fames by the hair and would not let go, though Mrs. Fames said most politely, "Please, Mrs. Bloom, to go away." The jury held that Mrs. Bloom was entitled .to damages, the pro- portion being as follows: Calling Mrs. Bloom one liar.. 7.00 Calling Mrs. Bloom one thief.. 13.00 Hitting Mrs. Bloom with weight 3.50 Kicking Mrs. Bloom hard and often 1.32 Dragging Mrs. Bloom by hair 1.39 Sticking Mrs. Bloom in pickle ban-el and spanking her, etc 13.79 Moreover, there are some expenses which Mr. Fames must al- so pay, not to mention losing the lu- crative patronage of Mrs. Bloom and hers in perpetuity. Black Hand Case At Port Arthur Port Arthur, Jan. sensation- al, story of alleged black hand work developed in the Police Court today, when Sam Parebianco was sentenced to 23 months in the Central prison for the taking of from John Vosh under false pretences.- E. Squieter, an accomplice, was fined or three months. Several alleged black hand cases were heard from before, but this was the most sensational. Parebianco first secured the confidence of Vosh, and procured in trust to invest in real estate. He then worked a system of black hand threats in an effort to induce Vosh to leave the country in fear, so he said, Fare- bianco could also get control of his store. Vosh was in constant receipt of threatening letters, and was final- ly decoyed into a lonely spot by Squiter, who with revolver and huge knife threatened to murder him, un- til Farebianco, in the role of the good fairy, appeared and prevented it. Parebianco then offered to send Vosh away where the black hand could not get at him. All through the case Parebianco turned up and heroical- ly rescued Vosh. When a complaint was laid, Farebianco attempted flight, but the Italian colony sent out de- deotives all over Port Fort William and West Fort, finally find- ing him at Fort William, heavily armed. He was brought back here, and in the guilty. Police Court pleaded Rambling Reveries B Y DREAMER NEW YEAR REVERIES. "The year lies white in the distance, Like snow that no step has marred. And we look at its shining surface As though through a window bar- red, And we wonder what idle footsteps Shall trample the fallen snow. Just us we watched and wondered A year ago. "Since then so many footsteps Have fallen and stumbled past, That the white perfection of promise Grew scattered and dark at last; But the neiv drifts lie on the path- way To covvr "the blackened .suo'w, And the New Year comes iri its beauty, As it came a year ago." If you find it so difficult to keep your New Year's resolutions, perhaps it would be a good idea to make a few bad ones this year, for a change. For instance, you might resolve bs cross to your wife (if you have one) every day during the year, and then give her gentle words and loving kisses instead'. You can thus be con- sistent with your past record, and possibly be a better man when an- other year rolls around. A new year is here- It is a time for invoice. Business men take an invoice of their stock. Wouldn't it be business for you to take one of yourself? Life, each life, is a busi- ness. Have you gained or lost last year? Have you used the talents that have beeen given you so as to gain other talents? Is there any prospect- of your being placed over ten cities or five cities or one city? Have you declared any dividends in the way of loving and helping others, and have you added anything to the capital stock of your character These are pertinent questions that- press us all for an answer. Let the result of the self invoice be a spur to us in living the coming year, or a cause for great congratulations as review the past and go forth to build "more stately mansions" for the future.

Let us turn our minds away from the tabernacle of flesh, the least real thing in our lives, and think ajittle of the inward growing old. For the body every added growth is almost incalculable gain. How old are we? How much older than a year, two. years, ten years ago? How much quicker to recognize the divine voice? How much stronger our hand and clearer our voice against evil? How much swifter our feet to bear the message of good-will to men? How much gain has there been in power and willing- ness to serve? 'How much mors faith- ful are we in the chaos of small and common duties and cares? How much truer are we in friendship, warmer in the home love, more pa- tient .with the mistaken and the bad? KILLED IN LOGO I NO CAMP. Prince Albert, Jan. Mil- ler was killed yesterday at Thomp- son's logging camp, 35 miles north of Prince Albert. He was an under cutter, and after cutting the brush from a fallen tree he jumped off, and alighted on a poplar snag and was impaled. He died almost instantly. Sir Wilfrid Laurier told a labor deputation to look to the provinces for technical education. Very little hope was held out for amendments to the Lemieux Act. The pessimist delights in derision of the good resolutions which mark the celebration of New Year's in the minds of many people Shame upon the man or' wcftnan' .who would dull the bright ambitions and desires for the better of any human being! But there is little time to give to habit- ual .mourners and augurs of evil. The new year will ft'e what we make it, so far as our individual lives are con- cerned, and the man or woman who resolves to be happy in a. healthful, f unselfish way, is taking the first road toward happinesss. We are all after happiness, in one way or another. Even the recluse, even the martyrs of old, were on the ondless search for happiness, though the joy of heaven rather than that of earth was the goal fixed upon in the eyes of those who sacrificed the present for the future. Eternal happiness was what they desired. Unselfish happiness is always waiting rigfit around the corner if we will only take our eyes off the far dis- tance and look nearer home. The re- solve to make next year a happy one for those nearest us will bring a good deal of real joy and satisfac- tion to the maker of the resolution if ho holds out well. Thfl first of January is the initial day of the year, and as such is honored by a multitude of observ- ances, chief among which are. the New Year calling the in- terchange of gifts, the cordial greet- ing, "A Happy New and the demonstrations attendant upon the contemplate habit of seeing the old out and the new year in. There yre two reasons why the time should be, if not cheerful, at least tranquil. If the old year has brought sorrow "and desolation, and hung crepe on the doors, the new year will bring us the leaves of healing, and we are glad to part with the one and welcome the other. on the con-, trary, the old year has brought us only joy and comfort, we part from him but meet his suc- cessor with the ardent hope-that he, comes The sober j'.tllit y of New Year's' day' is always j of an impassive nature. It is like standing for one brief moment on.the threshold between time and eternity. Here is the world we the .world that is new and untried. Another year is drawing, to a close. Another, milestone of .life is in view, and we shall, in all human probability, pass it and struggle on to the next. As we sit at our, desk and pen this short epistle to the young, we wonder we may write will cause them to think more seri- ously of all life means to them, and the brief period that is given them to improve it. The boy makes the man, the girl the woman. My boy, how do you want" to be remembered, by the people after you are gone, as a Lincoln or as a Booth? "My girl, That position do you wish to occupy in the hearts of the people with whom you have lived? You are the mould- ers of your own destinies. You can make them what you will. It rests with you whether your name shall go down in history honored or cursed, or whether it shall pass into oblivion as soon as the earth has hidden your mortal remains. Now is the time to choose. There are only two roads to travel; one leads to happiness and honor, the other to sorrow and degra- dation. We suppose you want to travel the first mentioned. Are you doing it? As the apprentice works at his task, and each succeeding day turns out work more perfect than on the preceding one, so should -we make each succeeding year of our lives more perfect. Are we doing this? Do we take time during the hurry" and bustle of the holiday season to review our work of the year and see where- in we have made mistakes, jotting them down in our memory as to be avoided in the future? That 'boy would never have become a perfect workman if he did not avoid the mis- takes of yesterday. We must never make the same mistake twice, and in order to guard against doing so, we must loot back and find the mistakes we have made. Will you do this, boys .and girls? Will you rest from your play and jollity for just a little season between now and January 1 .and recall those indiscreet words, those hasty actions that will prove stumbling blocks in the way of your becoming strong, helpful men and women, honored and loved by all REAL ESTATE T.
