It is almost impossible for a lady to walk along the street, without being crowded or jostled by men Then she is in danger, too, of having her skirts ruined by trailing in the tobacco juice that is expectorated over the walk by the loafing element.

One of the Conservative senators suggests that the best way to reform the senate is to permit the opposition leader to make appointments to that body, Yea, that is an easy way to get Conservatives into tbe senate, but it is a orassy man's scheme.' We do not want "one man" power in this country. .People in the west will applaud Ibis sentiment, expressed by J. J. Bill at Ottawa recently: on is a woman that Canada can be proud of. As a public speaker she is in the forefront of woman kind. A very charming lady is Mrs. Hayes, editress of the womeu's page on the Winnipeg Free Press. She is president of the Women's Press Club of Canndu, and is popular with lfor confreres of the press, Some years ago she was in; oharge of the territorial library at Begina. Mrs. Marshall, of Regina, writes under the non do plume of''Bandy Grant." Tho people who read her apleudid articles have not all been disabused of the opinion that "Sandy" is a woman, should not shut out now and wholesome and inspiring influence. It should stand wide in hospitable wel come to friends. The homo lite that is narrow and selfish is dull and enervating. There is not such a great amount of happiness in the world, oven at the best, that we should risk losing it by our own misdeeds and ill nature. There are many people in life who may be likened to a briar bush, when one comes too near he gets stung by thorns; but each individual should remember that he himself is sometimes tbomy and apt to inflict wounds. Therefor, each one should be more lenient toe mere toiling machines. Recreation is necessary to keep the heart in its place, and to get along without it is a big mistake. If men could remember that women can't always be smiling, who have to cook the dinner, au-swear the bell half a donen times, get rid of a neighbor who has dropped in, teud to a sick baby, tie up tbe finger of a two-year-boy, gather up the playthings of a four year ok), tie up the bead of a six year | old on skates, and get an eight ! year old ready for school, to say nothing ot sweepiug, cleaning, etc. A women with all of this to contend with may claim it a privilege to look and feel a little tired sometimes, and a word of sympathy would not be too much to expect from the man, who, during"the honeymoon, would't let her carry as.muoh cs a sunshade, There is perhaps no place where courage is more needed than in the,! home life by the tired housewife and. busy mother. Her daily work is but a repetition of many a yesterday. She is but human and must sometimes feel worn and discouraged, but a quiet confidence that we shall be able to perform whatever it right and necessary generally carries us safely through difficulties, keeping us strong and calm amid the most trying duties. No one fills a place ot greater responsibility, nor one more worthy of the highest honors than the wise and faithtul mother and housekeeper, wbo loves her work and acts on the principle that "it is not what we do but how, that makes us great." Her example is worthy of imitation by the noblest of earth.
