One of the shopmo'n, who had but recently been promoted from a provincial branch to headquarters in recogriltio'n. of his business smartness, noticed a ilttle elderly man Intently watching, and, as he thought, superintending, the. work of the electricians. ' ' .;' "Don't ym think it would be.much better,", said the assistant, coming out from behind a counter, with some oon-sequentlallty, *'lf thos^ pendants could be hung nearer the bookcases?" "Yes, I think It would," replied the other, looking round with some sur-. prise at the query; "but it Is scarcely for me to express an opinion In the matter." "Aren't you looking after the eleo-trlolans?" asked the shopman. "No; ohf no! Nothing so useful, I'm afraid," answered the old gentleman, as he walked emlHngly to the dopr.'^ 'My name Is Roberta-Lcird Roberts."

Rt B[on. Bonar Law, the now discredited leader of the Unionist party in Great Britain. "His surrender on the protocflon question indicates his quality, and this was by no means the first surrender. . He has been called 'a lath painted to look like Iron.' but he was never very. w;01l painted, and now the paint Is off.;' Yet we cannot help thinking that .Mr. Bonar I,aw'B discreditable rant :on Irish Home Rule may be mischievous In stimulating evil passions and declaring them' to be Justified. More partioularly, there la danger in a constant appeal to the pride of the Ulster men., To say to thejn, "You pledged yourselves," and "You threatened this and that," and "Are you cowards enough to run away from these threats and pledges?" IS to do what is ba-so as well as short-sighted. Imagine Mr. Bonar Law faced with the task ot subduing Nationalist Ireland! It Is of bad omen for the Conservative party that they should even nominally be led by a man who la not a statesman, but merely an Incendiary." - :�  Here la another picture of Mr. Law from London Opinion's Parliamentary correspondent: 'f'leawats shortly after the 'presentation, to Mr. Bonar Law of the famous Membritf'br Covenant, or whatever it should be called. In which his partjr practically said to'htm: 'Let's chiuige places; let .tlie followers lead and the leaders follow.' At a time of such mental strain, political anxiety, and wounded vanity, one"Would expect to find him closeted with,l]l.f stalwarts, and concerting sohemesiswdfplans tp, find ^a way out; but not a bit,of it: he Ws sitting in that Brtdkf^bm fpi?-'hours, playing chess with one of the Unionist members from-Llverp'ool!
