Mrs. Eugene Lajoie of Aylmer was charg- ea with starving and otherwise ill- treating her ten-year-old daughter Lena, who since birth sems to have It-en the object of the unnatural mo- ther's hatred. The reason she gave her dislike to the child was th it latter had beeu named after !idr husband's sister, whom she Eminence showed that the child was irtated more like an ill-favored dog than like a human-being. She was allowed to eat at the table ih.- rest of the family, and the ,ieigh- b'.'ro said the unfortunate little M't- cast searched in the yard for pel- ings and scraps of raw meat with which to appease her hunger.

Naturally, as wo art: awakening to the possibility exterminating the white plague in our own country, some questions were asked as to what was being done in Ireland where the evil is so acute and the campaign so general and organized. "The death rate In said her Excellency, "is about and of that about 500 deaths are from tuberculosis far more- than from any other disease. Of course the trouble is wnrst where there is poor housing and poor food, but. all classes are af- fected. Sixty years ag" Ireland was hours at a time.. Often the mother in a bettor condition in regard threatened to her.

The last three years the in- crease, of Ireland's exports of fires and poultry has been sterling each of the years: that i? increase in the three years. That lit- tle fact tells us how that industry has gone ahead. Imports and exports are both increasing."

"The export of lace and crochet work Ireland has increased some eight times in the last twenty years. There is a very well organized lace depot in Dublin, as well as wholesale depots in Paris and London. In Paris there is a great market, because so many Americans go there." The developing of the manufacture of carpets was also spoken of as one of the later assets of Irish industry. There was a considerable amount of this carpet-making done in Donegal, where also they still kept up the white i embroidering. Small carpet factor- ies were started In certain places by the Congested Districts Board. The carpets made were quite distinctive in colors and designs, and were so thick that they had the reputation of j never wearing out. returned from a month's visit to Great Falls, Mont., and Mr. Ro- gers from Michel. bridge crew which has been here for four months pulled out for the north branch on Saturday night.
