OF AGE THROUGH 1912 SEPARATIONS ' New York, Jan': 20.-More than 70,-000 children, mostly under the age of. Albany, N.Y., Jan. 15.--The joint loglsl.ativ.3 committee appointed in V.iU. to investigate the State's water power and resources and' 'recommend a possible plan for conservation and utilization reported that "it would bo impossible for the State of New York to develop a sufficient amount of hydraulic power to make any appreciable impression on the power demands of the state." The committee have Investigated the plan of the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of the province of Ontario, and they report that, in their opinion, "IT. IS. NOT. A. SUCCESS MEASURED BY ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS STANDARDS." They oppose the adoption of this plan by the state. The committee renews their recommendation made to the Legislature in 1912, and ask for the passage of legislation introduced at that time. They point out that there is within the state a dally consumption of over 2,000,000 horse-power, and that to deliver this to the point of utilization would take over 8,000,000 water horsepower at the penstock. They find that there is undeveloped within the state only 1,196,800 horse-power, 262,700 horse-power of which is actually owned! by the state, and 034,100 horse-power of which is claimed by private owners. The committee report regarding the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario that It has never developed any water power, but has merely acted in the capacity of middleman in the merchandizinz of electric energy; that it furnishes power to the municipalities below cost; that if the same methods were appliod to it as are employed in business transactions of a private nature, IT WOULD SHOW AN ANNUAL LOSS OP AT LEAST $432,170 A YEAR; and that, in addition to this losa to the province, the local municipal distribution power system of the city of Toronto showed a net loss to June 30, 1912, of $268,-984. Give Some Figures The report further shows that while there are three smaller districts in which the Hydro-Electric Power Commission, operates, known as the Port Arthur, the Ottawa, and the Big Chute, the great majority of its operations are confined to what is known as the Niagara system ;' that the commission has expended upon its operations provincial funds amounting to approximately $5',000i000 ; that its annual administration' expenditures are $275,000 ; that its operations have involved the municipalities served in expenditures for distribution of house-lighting and power service exceeding $8,000,000 ;� and that the result of this expenditure of $13,500,000 has been to distribute, without any power generation, either hydraulic or steam, less than 35,000 horse-power, or, as the commission points out, about the'amount utilized in and about Glens Falls and Hudson Falls. , ' Heavy Bonding. Attached to the report is a financial summary showing that the operations of the provincial Hydro-Electric Power Commission are conducted at a loss of $259,080, in addition to' its administration expenses, which has never been charged against the cost of power, that the burden placed on the severail communities by the expenditures of the Hydro-Electric Power Commission is ,of a variable character ; that some'have been bonded to the extent, of $3.11 tor each individual in the community, while others have been bonded for over $31. DEER COLLEGE IS YOUNG LADIES COLLEGE WHICH GIVES PROMISE OF FILLING USEFUL SPHERE OR. GEORGE Red Doer, Jan. 21.-An event o? 'loop .significance not only to Ucd liner and vii-in't.y, hut also to the | whole Province of Alberta took place j on Wednesday uf last week, in the opening for classes oi the Alberta Ladies' College. rKie College building on the hill is not ycC complete anil therefore provisional quarters had to lie scoured. Through Uie kindness of Mrs. MeC'reight, who rented to the College, her fine residence on Douglas street, this was possible, and here the opening exercises took place Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock. President Keith presided, who opened the proceedings' with devotional exercises, reading of Scripture and prayer. He then, addressed a few well-chos-cii words to those present-students, teachers and friends-outlining) briefly the general policy of the school, in svhich lie laid emphasis on its Christian though non-sectarian character KNIGHTED His C areer Reveals Another Father Damien in Caring for Lepers London. Jan. 20.-What had been regarded as a mystery in connection with the New Year's honors is now explained. T-he career of Dr. George Turner, who received a knighthood, reveals another Father Damien. During twelve years in the Cape Colony as medical officer ho rendered services to the cause of humanity which had never been adequately recognized except by a very few. He completed the system of inocculation against the rinderpest begun by Dr. Koah and produced a curative preventive serum. Within He also spoke of his desire that the  V0 ?e!'UU\ . * a year after education of the students should be | ^L^T^ Koch' by a wholesome common marked sense Rev. W. G. Brown also spoke. Mr. Brown has been in a sense, the father of the College. He advocated it on the floor of the Presbytery and Synod. Me has been ;vith the project, heart and soul, since its inception. His feeling was one of thanksgiving that at length our hopes were being realized. He spoke wise words to the students. Rev. Robert Pearson followed as also did Hcv. Mr. Moore, both expressing their pleasure at seeing such an institution established in the Province, and expressing best wishes for students, teachers and officers of the ; College ; and their confidence that it rinderpest in the Cape Colony was absolutely stamped out. He saved the country millions of pounds. During the Boer war, when the ravages of typhoid were appallingly severe, Dr. Turner, at Lord Roberts' request, undertook the supervision of the military hospitals and concentration camps, and carried out valuable work at the constant risk of his life. It was in the midst of these activities that Dr. Turner devoted himself first to' the noblest work of his life. There were then at the leper asylum at Pretoria about fifty Dutch and forty native patients. He gave up all his spare time to work among the lepers, doing all he could to alleviate their lot and making researches Into would be one of the great institutions the nature of the disease. For three _ > I van-no K.-. n.t*-U____*�_______ in the days to come Finally, Mrs. Muldrew, the lady principal, spoke. If, is evident to all who beard her speak that Mrs. Muldrew is an acquisition to the forces in the West that make for the advancement of those, things that are true and beautiful and good. She set a high ideal before the school, towards which every student must aspire. Besides a few oE the immediate friends of the College, there were present Miss Marion Wilkie, B. A., who takes the work in English, French and German, Miss Campbell in Household Science, Miss Bowker j in Music, and Mr. Hunter who has kindly consented to take the work for a time in Stenography and Typewriting. The enrollment of students both residents and day pupils is between 20 and 25, quite a eons'derable number having gone elsewhere on account'' o' the uncertainty regarding the College building not being completed. The College has got away to s good start. It is expected that the College building will be ready i'or occupation in six weeks. The contractors, Messrs. Horton and Willets, are putting forth every, effort to that end. HOTEL CLOSING IN SALUBRIOUS MANITOBA SOON READY TO START THIS WAY C. N. ten years, were deprived of one or both parents by divorce in the country during tho past year, according to ligures with which the Rev. Francis M. Moody stirred members of tho New York State Marriage and Divorce Commission at Ha meeting yesterday. "The Pacific Coast," he said, "has been tho greatest divorce centre of j end the entire world. In, tho year 1912 alone there were granted in the U. S. over 100,000 � divorcee,. In forty years :;,700,000 adults-, were separated by divorce, and inpre than 5,000,000 persons affected by those cases. Illinois jilone provided' 120,000 divorces,' Pennsylvania 55,760, California 50,000 and New York 44,450, Now York state, however, sent 18,169 of its couples into other states to .procure divorces and tihere were probably many migratory oases that are not recorded iu ibis total. At present 90 per cont, of .i.ho cases go by default, with only one party represented." Mr. Moody offered, a resolution to organize a federal . commiiaiou in this state to work for a uniform fed-oral law governing marriage and divorce. � i � � � R.

The railway w{ll be in active operation early iu the spring. Winnipeg, Jan. 20.-There was a civic bye-election here today to fill the vacancy on the Board of Control, caused by the death of Controller Mc-Arthur. Dan McLean was the winner over Allan L. MacLsan, � '' ' A feature of the election was the method of closing the hotels: the front doors 'were shut, and cards placed thereon, pointing the way to the side door that was kept open, while business was conducted at the bar in the usual dally manner.- GRANDMOTHERS USED SAGE TEA TO DARKEN THE HAIR AND RESTORE GRAY AND FADED HAIR TO ITS NATURAL COLOR MR. BURY OFF TO JAPAN Moose Jaw, Jan. 20.-George Bttfry, vice-president of the C. P, Rf> passed through the city tonight, on route to j Japan.  He came, in-over the main line, and left for the north overbite Outlook branch, and will go. via Edmonton and Calgary to the co�,s,t. ^le was here for less thou ..two-hours, and was met at Broadview by J! G. Taylor, general superintendent: of the. company,'with headquarter;] here. *�:" It Is easier to preserve the color of the hair than to restore it, although it fs possible to do both. Our grand -_mother^ understood the secret. They .made a "sage tea" and their dark glossy hair long- after middle life was due to this fact. Our mothers have Bray hairs before, they are fifty but they are beginning to appreciate the wisdom of our grandmothers In uslngr "sage *ea" for their hair and are fast following suit. The present feneration 1ms the ad vantage of the past In that It can get a readyrto-use preparation called YVvotn's Slice and Sulphur Hair Remedy. As a scalp Ionic and color-restorer this preparation is vastly .superior to the ordinary "sage tea" made by our grandmothers. The growth and beauty of the hair depends on a healthy condition of tho ncalo. Wycth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy quickly kills tno dandruff germs which rob the hair of its lite, color und lustre, makes the scalp clean and . heaSthy, gives the hair strength, color and beauty, and makes It irrow.

In addition he made as many postmortem examinations as possible. He was in his laboratory at dawn in order to have time for the work. The visitor who watched Dr. Turner moving among the patients in the asylum bears witness to the passionate devotion with which he was regarded by all the inmates. For the last two years he has been living in seclusion and it is curious that this heroic story escaped the notice of the public, for Sir George Turner .was a man pXjgminence in his profession and one of the greatest living authorities on leprosy. Recently, however, his case came' to the knowledge of His Majesty, on whose own initiative" Dr. Turner's name was included in the New Year's iiouors. "It is much to him now, we. do not doubt, that his noble service has been honored by the King, but we venture to think that something is still owing him from the dominion which he served. Not he, himself, can foretell, the course of his disease, but the time may come (he has already lost the use of his left arm) when trained assistance will be in urgent need. We believe that the South African government is considering the. possibility of increasing the slender pension which is now his only support. There are few individuals whose work can be appraised like his in actual millions of pounds, and yet that part of it -is, in a sense, the least we can appraise. The materia,! results of his career and its splendid heroism we can only salute and admire THROW THE BALKANS PEOPLE INTO WEST ALLEGED PLANS OF CP. R; REPORTED FROM BERLIN VIA NEW YORK.

While the commissioners and aldermen are of the opinion that the city should take advantage of adding -natural gas to its string of municipal-owned public utilities, no provision has been made for financing,the, .enterprise. It is announced that .'the state of the money market in Europe is such as to forbid undertaking the project this year. It is also given out j that the council would entertain a proposition of a private company financing the plant, including pipe line and distributing system �nd  turning it over to the citv when completed-on a long-term agreement. -On the other hand, several-mem.
