Ho must not disport himself like the average youth of the present day making his Initial appearance In a sllK bat or fall dress suit But that'ls not all. Sir Thomas. Sir WUliam, or Sir Bobert-as the case be-^^Is literally submerged with Speaker Lowther, Who Made History With a Single Ruling He Is Now the Enemy of the Suffragettes as a Result. NOT AN APRIL FOOL Though Born oh April 1st-His Wife Is a Very Charming Woman. SPE.\KER LOWTHER of the British House of. Commons has made history and a place for himself In it. with a single ruling. It is already famous, but when It was first pronounced It was something better; It was unexpected. The oldest Parliamentary hands admit that the incident was sensational. Moreover, the ruling was Idiosyncratic. It came very near expressing the Speaker's personal wishes In regard to the treatment of any legislation affecting the Entran-cfclseaier.t of Women. "X Lowther Arcade may pass away, but you have preserved for us our Lowther Arcadia," wrote one happ.v member the same night on a sheet of House of Commons note-paper. Mr. Lowther. without delving deep in the classics that sarvive to htm from Trinity days, could prove that even an Arcadia has its shepherdess, or Its Countess, of Pembroke-or of Selborne, as the cose may be. Mr. Lowther, by the 11^ ^ Speaker Loxciher. may . congratulatory letters and telegrams. Noblesse oblige-aU tbese messages of felicitation must be answered, by the slow and rather painful process of hand-written. communications. It would be Infra digitatem to call In an amanuensis and reply tir a wholesale or pro forma method, or t� Insert a card of thanks in the newspapers like a newly elected alderman or school trustee. Congratula.tlons ore formal, stiff, familiar, or droll, and come from all quarters of the Dominion and even beyond Its borders, while not a few ema.uate from people whom the recipient has never known. The char-apter of the messages frequently da-ponds on. the degree of intimacy that the sender has prevloualv enjoyed with the, titl^; one. It recalls the Incident of Sir-b^orge Boss, leader of the Liberal patty In the' Senate, who was honored :k; few years ago- A warm personal frlebd-'.of the former Premier ,ef: Ontario is .f. C. Irving,*- manager of Brodstrept's. Toronto. On the occasion when "the list" was announced. Mr. Irving happened to be in the West, Bveryone knows that Sir George ts sound In the. Presbyterian faith and doctrine.: Accordingly Mr, Irving, who possesses a keen sense- of h'umor and Js'-'ono of tho best raconteurs of good Btorles,-,promptly despatched the fol-lo-^ing: 'Sir George Roes Toronto-Hearty .congratulations on the ra-Icognitlon 'beBtowed upon you by our 3overelBn.. but,. remember, the Good . Dojdr asked.the. chair-TTiuc^itlmo do you think pl9,wly. over^ the facea be-arovmd him. ^ he most de- way, found time to take honors both In the Classical and the La-tv Tripos at Cambridge before he was called to the Bar In 1S79. Seven years later he married the lady who helps to- rule Speaker's House In a Way thoroughly to the liking of parties and their wives. The Cousins ASPEAKER never speaks; it Is said he need seldom think. Impartiality displaces principles and gags many a mouthful of fine argument-or of platitude. But beneath Mr. Lowther-s silence, deep down under his smile, lie the strong convtcitions of a party man. It is now a matter of guessing more or less when one would know the secrets of his Conservative soul, for the manner that makes him a good Speaker has become a habit wltti him: and there are not more than two people alive who have his confidence. He sometimes regrets that- he Isiso hemmed in with reticence. The armor he wears. Irks his spirit, and the spirits of others. It is said that even Lord LonsdaJe finds a week-end all too short to probe the real opinions of his arcane cousin. - .Mr. Lowther must sWallow his political prepOBsessiona He Is. moreover, too deeply Involved in the Interests of the world to pass his Ume in the House unscathed, from the personal point of view. "My relatives,", he says, "always seem to be, quite unintentionally, at the old Joke of pulling my chair from, under me." Family ties, he means, threaten the equilibrium of his official position, although they never really disturb It. With. hIJB heart and his relatives among the Lords and their leaders he must nevertheless spend his life attending to the pcr-mitted ribaldry of the ConMnons. .Mr. Claude Lowther, M. P.. has an eye, but It must .not be caught or disregarded more or less than Mr. Glnnell's: and Mr Christopher Lowther, his own son. Is on the political horizon, ready to add to the minor, and perhaps somewhat delightful, dilemmas of the Chair, Even In foreign affairs, he can at times amuse himself with the pusizle of B.dJu3tlng the personnl �nd the Impersonal aipecta of a situation. Lowthers >ir In dli>-loma�y; his brother, Sir G�rard Lowther. could not spend much time at the British �EJmbaasy In ConBtantlnople without making many trlenrts '(Taong the Turks. Misji Mabel Lowther. the sister of the Ambassadnr qnd the Speaker, is married l.o the �on of ' Turkish admiral. The Hope Churches MR. LOWTHER, on the other hand, was In the world of crosses when he married the daughter of Mr. Hope, the munificent .^Jiurch builder. "It's enough to make Infidels of his children" was - the unpleasant comment of the cynic, who, after studying the figures, found that more money ha4 gone to All Saints', Margar-i et Street, and other costly edifices, than to the family. Mrs, Lowther contributes, on her side, a full share of political association and couslaa to the Lowther collection. It would tafce the learned Speaker fully ten minutes' to state the exact degrees of his connection with Mr. Balfour, and Lord Sal Isbury, but they exist. If it was said of Mr. Gully when he vaa elected Speaker that half the members did not know him by sight, there obviously cannot ha,ve b^en, In his case, ainything like such a considerable family jiarty at Westminister. Lowthers, too. have bean bulld�rs, but with profit. The lote Mr, William Lowther. of Lowther Lodge, left estate of over four hundred and forty thousand pounds, the bulk of which, with the house wont to the Speaker. And the father left his son a constitution and temperament of some Httje value, ,,ln a letter addressed to his solicitors shon-iv bfefpre bis death, wbJcb occurf�d. at the age of nlnet,v, he reassures them, lest they should think that business in regard to his will portended ill; "1 did not take too gloomy a view of myself," ha concluded. Exception to the Rule BORN In 18B5, on April 1, that led an Irish member to console him with a "Sure, Mr, Speaker, yourself Is the exception which proves the rule," he faces you with a clear eye and a comfortable presence. His �wrist is robust-the wrist of an accomplished fencer; his greyness Is such as the novelists (It Is hard to know why) call "Iron," From one of the deep windows of Speaker's House, he looks out upon Westminster without a flicker of anxiety; ,aIone ainong politicians, he does not know what it is to have a neirvous system which, in periodic rebellion, cries out for escape from the precincts of the House. Holidays he accepts with the wilUngmess of a schoolboy; work he accepts with as little nervous strain as when he was at Eton. Why, then, should he ever leave, for good his splendid quarteys In the Palace of Westminster? Lo^';ther Lodge is sold; he has nowhere.else to lay his head And certainly it would be hard find a place fitted to .the social genius of Mrs. LowUier. -Tho^ketch. HE WASNT A WORKMAN tVJHBN Mr. Kelr Hnrdle was first W returned to Parliament as member for West Ilnm, twenty years ago, he Bt onoe attracted attention by his studied defiance of convention ns regards dress. The SoolBllBt member's get-up was sufficiently starillng, whilst frock coats ond silk toppers were althost tiie only wear at St. Stephen's, Before ho bocanio known to all the custodians of the House, Kelr Hardlo was one day niaktng his way towards the Representative Chamber by an un-aooustoraed, but to hlra, on the occasion, convenient entranou. His oloth cap wos worn on the side of his head, his Jacket and trousers were of coarse tweed and loose cut, hla boots were thick of sole, and his red necktie, was knotted under the loose, turn-down collar of a grey flan-nol shirt As he went along an unfrequented passage he was met by a policeman. Somewhat doubtful ns to the right of the stranger in the place, the "bobby" tapped Kelr Hardle on the shoulder, with the fishing question: "Hullo, mate; working here?" , "Nay, nay," replied the strangely-clad new legislator. "I'm in another part of the House. We don't work there; talk," The policeman never again stopped the then member for West Ham, who is now, of course, one of the best known of Parliamentary jprsonali-tles. GREASE HER KNEES" AGOOD story has been going round the clubs concerning ex-President Roosevelt's schoolboy days. He was rather a duffer at reciting then', and once it fell to his lot at breaking-Up time to "speak a piece," beginning: 'At midnight. In his guarded tent. The Turk lay, dreaming of the hour When Greece, her knees In suppliance ^ bent. Should tremble at his power Young Roosevelt got as "When Greece, her knees, fast for the context. Twice the lad repeated. "Greece, her knees," and then he broke down and gave It up.

JOSEPH P. TUMULTY-and you pronounce it as if he were 'all "Tum"-is the youngest man ever Appointed secretary to the President of the United States. But that Isn't all. He Is thirty-three years old, has six children, and Is as wise as Solomon, Rhadamanthus, und the whole Federal bench of the United States combined. He's a Roman Catholic, likes to tell anecdotes, and every time he sees an automobile a mania possesses him, catches him by the soruffi of the neck, hurls him Into it, and he's off-oft for a ride. When it comes to holding down the upholstered cushions of a motor car this young man "Turn" is the fair-haired boy. As might be expected from his tumbled up name, he's an Irishman. .A.nd he's short and chunky, .with cheeks as red os the blush of: thp full grown dawn, not to mention his eeru-loan eyes-all of Which mftkes.him a picture of health, happiness, and high-strung Joy, Joe Tumulty's strongest suit- is thlnkiiig. Ordinarily he Is as thoughtful as an ' owl, as deliberate as an owl, but much quicker in reaching bis conclusions than any oyl whose mental processes have been investigated by the bird section of the Department of Agtlculture.

SOON there Is coming to America a sixteen-yeaTTold boy with a remarkably beautiful face whom thousands of men and -women will haU with reverence. For this lad, Krlshiiamurtl, otherwise known as Alcyone, is be-Uevfd to be a new Messiah, a being through whom the Spirit of Christ will manifest himself to. this generation and century. . 1 The theory of Tlieosophisis, and the foUowers of the higher Buddhism, accept Is. that at long, rare Intervals, one of the great Spirits visits earth and reincarnates himself in some human body. At one period this Spirit was known as Confucius; at another as Buddha: at another as Christ; at another as Mohamet. From, the fast-ne.iaes of the Himalayas, where reside the "Masters of Wisdom" (Initiates who have delved-deep Itito occult Icnowledge, and thus achieved spiritual clairvoyance)." the message .has come forth that some such great soul is due here again, that he may even be: In the flesh now, preparing for his manifestation and for the great work he is to accomplish for our generation. These Initiates are as the Wise Men of'the East to whom the star foretold the coming of Clirlst to Bethlehem, and their prediction, given forth sixteen years ago, created a sensation among those who believe such dicta sup�r-naturally Inspired. That the body Into which this spirit has been born Is actually Krtshnamiirtl, the initiates do not definitely declare, but because of the extraordinary spiritual gifts and wonderful Intuition be has displayed since childhood they believe that If he is not the new Messiah he is destined, like St. John the Baptist, to prepare the world for his coming. Born in Northern India THE boy was born In Northern India, and by reason of the genius , he early manifested, those who sought the realization of the "Master's" prediction concluded that he was the looked-for manllestatipn, The Initiates began their mystic Investigations and traced his' previous reincarnations through thirty-one births and existences. This Information, sifting through the Indle^i world,'was brought to the attention of t^ie 'Theosophists and others who have accepted the philoi- I-after Studying English for, a very few months wrote a book. It Is called "At the Feet of the Master." It is declared that no one, be he Christian, Buddhist, Jew, or Mohammedan, can read this strangely simple, lufcid, and beautiful exposition of the true rule of conduct for attaining spiritual consciousness without realizing . its vital significance and the extraordinary quality of the ntiind that gave it birth, A year after publication it was. translated into fourteen different languages, and to-day It ts the creed of those who believe that Krishnamurti may really be prophet of the Way, the Truth and the Life, Living in England TO-DAY the boy, with his brother, Nitayanda, Is living in luxurious seclusion at the country house of Lady De ija Warr in Sussex, England. There they are being most carefully educated in science, literature, languages, and economics-in all the learning of both East and West-so tliat when the time comes Krishnamurti may go forth equipped to dispute if necessary with the doctors, and in all tongues "bring the Message of Peace and Brotherhood, tiie dominant thought which the Masters of Wisdom say the new Christ Is to teeich through Alcyone when he' returns to the earth." One may sense the remarkable hopes centred in Krishnamurti by quoting from the sworn statements in a suit now pending before a district Judge in Chlngleput, Madras. A Hindu Govern ment pensioner seeks to regain from the celebrated Mrs, Annie Besant, his two sons, Krishnamurti and Nitayanda, It was Mrs. Besant who discovered th lads, and won the father's consent to take them to England, In a very sin gular legal document filed in court, the father declares that last, year tho boys were making rapid spiritual progress, "and were approaching initiation by the masters." He also submits that Mrs. Besant "has been stating that the first boy who Is named Alcyone, Is, or Is going to be Lord Christ with the result that the boy Is deified, and that a number of respectable per sons prostrate before him, and show other signs of worship." Mrs. Besant has answered lo a sig nUlcant/way.
