No wonder lighting Frank Carvell takes off hlu hat-he has had many encounters in his life, most, of them successful, but he has uover yet taken a fall out of a locomotive. All one can wish for Sir cleorgo now is that ho may live forever. An interesting conjuncture is tho Hon. James Haider and the lion. Newton Howell. They are seatruates and tho tress Gallery has already christened them the Two Moustaches, Ihe contrast being quito as marked as the symbolism. The Hon. Mr. Cablet- has a moustache of generous proportions, not as drooping as that of the walrus, nor yet as briatling as that of Frank Oliver, but an impressive ornauiont just tho Bamo, and fairly typical of tho breezy western spirit. It is in fact built lo reHiat the weather, and blizzards have raged through it .with as little harm to the fabric as tho gentle. Chinook. Mr. Calder's moustache hints to me of spacious skies, wide horizons^ and broad opinions well ventilated by the keen air of the prairies. I havo a great deal of faith In it-Trie Two Moustaches Tho Hon. Mr. Howell's moustache is of an entirely different character. It is black and might be luxuriant kif it wero allowed to have Its own way, but like Mr. Kowell, it is under the strictest moral discipline. Its  close-clipped neatness seems to represent all the propriety of tbo c-ffeto east and all the goodness of Toronto. Some day Mr. Rowell will wax that moustache and that day will soe blm hailed as u good fellow and taken to the bosom of the average sinner who has passed through enough fire to become human, Just here is the place to say that Mr. Rowell has In him the makings of a. useful statesman. He is houest, earnest, industrious, and eloquent. Ileally eloquent-no wind, no padding -%he eloquence of compact language, close reasoning, and definite purpose. | On the hustings or in parliament, Mr. i Howell makes equally good speeches,} Ho never makes a poor speech because he never trusts to the moment to throw a lot of flub-dub together. He | prepares his speeches, midnight-oils t them to the last syllable, in which! matter ho sets an example to our Blder Statesmen, who have long' thought that anything was good enough for the crowd. Mr. Rowell's critics, and they are many, take the ground that Mr. Rowell may be earnest, but that he is earnest about only a few things. He is earnest about moral reform, about winning the war, about the greatness and solidarity ot the British Empire-all sentimental questions as it were-the pie of politics-tho subjects, that is to say, over which any one with a spiritual side to his nature ma^y smack his .Hps. But how about the tariff and the oth'.r sordid details which make up the daily faro of politics? When will Mr. Rowell show an expert interest in these homely but necessary matters? When he does he will cut a much greater figure in politics than he doe3 row. Meanwhile, his task is to conquer a certain unpopularity with the man on the street, who would love Mr. Rowell more it he could vospect him less. Just one amiable failing-just orfb little cigarette, smoked In public -say In tho lobby of the Chateau- and Mr. Rowell would win manw hearts. "What 1b one mass?" said Henry of Navarre, foregoing for tho moment n conviction in order to win Paris. What is one cigarette-we'll lot it go at that. , The Hon. Chas. Murphy's remarks anent Mr. Rowell continue to reverberate down tho corridors of time. Mr. Murphy is Irish, and when he speaks about Mr. Rowell he speaks not only con amore but Connemara. Mr; Murphy is known as the Shillelagh ot the Opposition-and a doughty shillelagh ho is and deals many lusty blows. The general opinion was that he certainly did., beat up Mr. Rowell, but about the result there were two schools of thought-one that it was bad for Mr. Murphy, because it would create sympathy for Mr. Rowell, the other that it would be good for Mr. Rowell because it would show him the treatment he might expect when he got away from Toronto, where the Globe and the Star and tho good people generally are always presenting him with prizes for good conduct. There is a lurge, cold world outside Toronto, and this fact Mr. Murphy has conveyed to Mr. Rowell is language not over delicate. There ought to be a lesson in it for somebody; Personally 1 believe that Mr. Rowell suffers from the kindness of his nowspaper friends who will insist on painting the lily and crying up the virtues of- a public-spirited citizens who would succeed much better on his own merits. It may interest the gentle reader, and the ungentle one likowise, to learn that the Hon. C. C. Ballaiityne is a giganlesqutt statesman, almost as tall as the high tariff he favors. He is remarkably like Do Wolfe Hopper in lace and figure. One does not know whether his voice has the name bourdon quality as the big comedian's, but doesn't care lor any noise wlwn he arrives. He looks fine. Tho trip if it has it ought to make a big bit with Parliament. One wonders also whether Mr. Uallantyne has the comic quality, but 1 don't see how that Can be because-well, because the tariff is no joke. It is no joke, and yet it is no curse - -because It, is a smooth way of extracting money from a people not ripe yet for the rough, bluff methods of direct taxation. Uveii Dr. Michael Clark has modified his views of the tariff to tho extent of blaming it for everything except our recent, severe winter. This shows how much Union government has done for the great apostle ot free trade, t don't see how we are to get i'.long without tariff for some years to come. It will be one of. many ways o� raising a lot of money. We havo one 'plumber in Parliament, but it will t�.ke more than one plumber to solder the leaks in the treasury. We have also one dentist, but it will take more than ono dentist to fill the cavity in the revenue. Still, whenever I look at Mr, BalJantyne I remember that Do Wolfe Hopper once sang "That elephant ate ill. night and that .elephant ate all day." and somehow or other 1 link that elephant up with high tariff. However, nobody reckons to meet that elephant crossing a bridge this session-not even the western members. H. P. GADSBY. II'-.

This Sapphire Ball, in conjunction with the secret Patlie' method of recording, reproduces music in a clearer, more natural tone than you have ever before heard on a phonograph.

Also, a loud or half-tone', or "soft" sapphire may be uted. FURTHERMORE, not only is the Pathephone supreme in scientific musical perfection, but tiie Pathephone cabinets are the most beautiful of all in design and finish. Exquisite examples of Period Furniture make them not only worthy Jemples of the wonderful music that pours from them, but they harmonize with the most exclusively furnished homes. OlNALLY, in addition to the su-periority of the Pathephone as an instrument, it must be remembered that -Patlie' Records are the world's best music, and this is not only because the -music played possesses 40% more tone colors, but the number of singers and artists in all lands that play for Pathe' is the most extensive. IF you are planning to buy a phonograph, you should certainly hear the Pathephone. You will be enchanted by its wonderful tone. If you already have a phonograph, it can be easily equipped to play Pathe' Records-or, better still -any Pathe' agent will make you a liberal allowance for it in exchange for one of tho new Pathe' Period Designs.
