McKay, the Liberal leader in Ontario, is not a coward. The. over- whelming defeat of the party has nol discouraged him iu the leust. Liber- alism is.not submerged. It has a mission to servo iu OuLtirio. few days after the election Mr. McKay was interviewed by the Tor- onto News. What he told the report- er has such a true, maul.-' air ubout it that we publish it iu full: "Ontario Liberalism is not he said emphatically, "mark that, frhis may be a good time to 'take to find out just whcie we aud wherein, if it be the case, we uro out of touch with the people. 1 ain awaiting the ollicial returns ui popular so that may learn exactly our po- sition." "Do you counsel a Provincial con- Mr. MacKuy was asked. "JL do at the proper time. I do not know that it would be the wisest thing to do to call it immediately. Men are apt to be a.bit lethargic in the face af such experiences as re- ports indicate the Liberals have re- gone through. But I have a lot of faith in the Liberalism of the earnest, aggressive kind that knows it has a mission and is ready to per- form it. A year ago when I accept- ed the leadership I expressed the view that a convention should eventually be free gathering of Liberals not .to pass cut-and-dried resolutions but to confer frankly together as to position, policy and platform. Within the next year such a gathering inigh A POST-ELECTION SPEECH." (Toronto Saturday flight) It is said that no man in Owen Sound is more popular than Mr. James H. Little, the veteran editor ot The Advertiser. Mr. Little's family was one oi the lirst to come to Owen Sound, and the Advertiser one ol the town's oldest papers. Mr. Little, always a iiKxk-st man, was prevailed upon many years ago to run for the Town Council. Alter much deliberation the genial "Jioi- my" let his name go on the ballot, and when the returns were in it was found that he had polled the highest vote. A demonstration, the usual af- termath of an election, was prepar- ed for the evening, and the newly elected councillors were given an op- portunity to speak. Mr. Little kept well to the background, but was tin- ally discovered; and being a small man was carried to the platform. With the ploasuntest smilo lie was master oi, he said: ''Ladies and irt-n tlcmeu, I can't make a spei-ch, but 1 can run." And with that lie jumped from- the platform and ran up the street much to the amusement of the citizens as- sembled. GRAPHIC STORY OF THE FLOODS IN MONTANA THE ORIGIN THi CORRECT Sunday School John- ny, where do you go when you arc loss caused by this flood can never be computed. The grand total is appalling. Every section of the otate has suffered. There is scarcely u farm in the bottom lands of any river in Montana that hns not suf fvred. Some of the finest old homes in the state have been destroyed Along the Milk river, the Teton, the Marias, and the Missouri, every where, one .sees grain and hay field covered with several feet of slime an filth and sand that will bake haraud concert, and added to this, the fact that the band is led by a man who knows how to get the beat re- sults, it is not a cause for wonder that-the "Kilties" are hailed with delight wherever they appear.

"Bear this in mind: the Liberal par ty is larger than the individual, and, even in Its darkest hour, I have no doubt that Liberalism is yet destined to serve Ontario faithfully and well "There was uhe encouraging feature about the campaign just ended. The old-time Liberals, men who in 1905 had reached the conclusion that it was well that the Ross Government should fall, were this time as loyal and whole-souled as ever, it did me good, travellhig through, the coimiry, to experience the many warm hand- shakes from the old s'.u: A us Ls of Li- beralism who were ivgi'-'n oti the fight- ing lines."

A train from the west stood on othor skle of the gap. Some of the passengers bound for coast points and anxious to get to their destina- tion determined to walk over the mountains and catch the train on the other side. It was in a wild, rugged and heavily wooded region. There a great mountain to climb and the footing was dim and uncertain. One of the passengers from the east was an old lady, .sick unto death, on her way to her home in Seattle. She had been advised by her physi- cians she had but a few days to live and she was hurrying home before death overtook her.
