A test case has boon .filed for trial, and it tho verdict la I that the Province has no such powers, appeals will bo ni.ado right up to 'tho Privy Counoll.  ilorotoforo the rule has been that .'ill divorces In Canada aro granted by ucl of tho Federal Parliament, tho 'Only exceptions being'''Nova Scotia (Old Urltioh Columbia. Both thoae �.Provinces liave tho right to institute ; divorce proceedings and ' grant abao-  lu'to rtlasoiuUons ot tho marriage tie in thoir own cjourts. British C'olum- �ibla was giver, the right by tho Privy i Council a few years ftgo, when tho A'tlorney-General fought fpr Provln-; olal rights as .against the, exoluslve ' Kedorul power, And won htvoase; It is now olalmod that Alberta has quite as good a caso as British Columbia, and iho present suit Is being bi'ouglit to settle tho point for all time. Tho argument is baaed upon a section ot tho Northwest TorrltoV-!i;a Act ot 1880, which provldBB that the laws ot Kngland relating to �'.lvil and criminal matlors "as tho �anie tlx.b'.e.a on lh� IBth day uf July. \ 1S70, shall bo In' force in the Torri-� torloa insofar ns tho same are not repealed, .Tlterei), pr varied by Act of Parliament of the United KlPB-dom or of the Teri'llorlea." When the Alberta Act w,as framed, constituting Alberta Into a Province, Socllon 16 ruled that: "All laws nncl courts of civil mid crini-Inul Jurisdiction, and aU powers and autlioiltlcs, judicl.ll, ftdnilnlatrutlve and inlnlslorlal, existing in the' Territories hereby established ns tho Provinco ot Alberta, shall conllnuo In tho mkl ijVovluco as it this Act had not booh passed." Included In tho laws of ICnaland thus made applicable to Wiq Northwest TorrltorleH, ijud continued Ju tho Province ot Alberta, Istlio Matrimonial Causes Act, which was passed In England in 1857 and has never been ropealod, Uiidqr it a dlvorcQ may bo obtaliiod for adultery, deser-tlpn, for at least two years, or cruelty. Tho contention therefore Is that tho Matrimonial Causes Act of England was adopted aa part ot tho Alberta law by tho two nonilnlon statutes roCerred to, and ns such Is rightfully In forco and valid at the present time without the necessity of referciico to 0|luwa. It tho pgint Is oonccdod It is allogethtr likely ,tj;ttt BasUaLclicwaii win .follow Bull, By ANXm GItAY BUTClIKn. AST Sunday was Trinket and I Trea.sure Day in a number of A-rf churches. After nearly four years of war the womon of Canada were asked, for the first time, to give tlioir trinkets in order tiiat our soldiers may have a little added comfort and help. And tliis, not because there was notiiipg else left to give, us ba.s- been the sad cuye In ap many otiier v.-ars in oilier countries, but that i.t is wise and desirable 1,0 make of Kuiicrfliioiis tilings first wlienever possibie. The old jewel eases were lakcn out and their hoarded contenl.s inspected. Many, many things were found, that we used to think we would never part with, no matter how iii'gent the need. But war not only alters the map of tlio world, it filters the map ot our outlook, our inlook, and our uplook. Tho boundary line of our outlook moves out wide and far, and takes .in strange lands and climes and peoples, and with thom their-needs and wants and rights. Our inlook shows us astonishing, ever-widening i!ields of possibilities awaiting cultivation, wonderful stretclii?s ot resourcefulness ready for tho organizing voice, reserve forces oC seU'-deuial and sacrifice undreamed of. Our uplook is boundless-must bo boundless; we dare not set a limit to it. Strips Glamor of Sentiment TUINI>:1':TS! llow that word strips all the glamor of sentiment from (he things we hoarded. There is just so much gold in thonj-' so much silver. Intrinsically they aro worth just so mucii. Not very much some of them. It was almost a shock wheii wo came down to tho hard fact of reckoning their worth In dollars nnd cents ^ lo realize that about fifty per cent', of the value wo pldced'upon them was sentiment. Many ot the trinkets wero things that hud been handed down to us from another generation-links of gold and silver connecting us with a bygone age. Some we had acuuired, toljons ot love or of appreciation for bravo deeds done, with which we intended to lengthen nnd strengthen the mystic chain ot sentiment and bind ourselves in turn to those who might come after us. Very, very precious were many of those trinkets till tho great gift-our men-wus asked tor. WlUi that suerit'ice 'made most other possessions laded into comparative insignificance. ^ Wliut is un old gold bracelet ^lat wus worn by erne's greiit-gruhd-motlier when slie sliook hands with Wellington, what tlio silver buckles from till) slippcis that one's mother wore Vv'lieu Kho danced with tho Prince of Wales compared in value to a hot drink to givo to a weary, norvo-wrccked war-maddened man crawling out ot tho trenches, chlld-lielpless, loolcing for succor'.' ' But people would not boliovo that our great-giandmoUier bhook hands ivllli Wellington, or 'our mother danced with tho Prince ot Wales it we gavo tlio braculct und the' buckles nway and made no exhibit, of tho great, events.

This is signed by one of the foremost women writers of France. She has reached to fame and fortune at 30 years old"; nnd was among the party which with Barres and Marguerite and the poor! later on diKlin.gul3hod her-."olt by aooidenlnlly .squirting a a.iringefiil ot ether down the back of the doctor's neck. So we dotormined to go "on till? 1/ind" and koop .a goat. "We must have one wiUi a kid," Gladys said firniiy, "Tlilnlc ot the milk we shall got!" So wu decided to advertise for a widow with one child. Advertising for Zepp'eh'na ISTIPl'iiATKD' for the hornless variety, and ottered to give the anaesthetic while she milks it. Wo called in at Mabel F.'s on our way up from the hospital, but found her j feverishly moasuriiVg off her garden into chicken-runs, and the goat project loft her cold. She's going lo keep Plymouth Brethren and Bluft Orphans-at least it sounded like that, and says she'll sell us eggs at six-pence ha'penny each (the rSar-ket price is fivepenco) because we're friends of hers. Between ourselves, I don't env.v M.abel's chickens. Sho Is going to keep.tliem on tho "intensive system." I asked I\er why she didn't exiicrl-ment on her husband. Think of tho zest he would have for his food and tiie splendid exercise he would get if he was told his dinner was secreted somewhere between (he garret and the cellar! Think ot the frenzied search for soup in tlie airing-cupboard, in the bath-room, and curried eggs among the coals! "You won't be able to hide tlie goat anyway," Mabel said coldly. We want on to Gladys". place, and found tho Scientist and tho Sergeant making rabbit hutches. "We"ro going to keep a goat," we announced. Tho Scientist took some! nails out of his mouth und said, "Ttion Steve will certainl.v givo notice" (Steyo is the gardener), und the Sergeant, who appeared to be on tho worst possible'terms with several yards ot wire-netting which wus entwined about his feut, said callously, "It will eat you out of house and hoine," and then resumed a discussion witli the Scientist on the advantages of crossing a Belgian Hare ^vith a Flemish' Giant. Hom\e�� Variety Preferred 0 wo said, "Wanted, a goat. Ob- 1 ject, inillf; harml>jns variety preferred. l\lust lie good tempered and acuustom^d to ladies' society. Ono kid not objected to." Then we' sat in '1110 garden, and waited for tho long procession ot superior widowed goats leading their innocent progeny tliat wo ' felt suro would bo blocking the avenue, This was on Thursday, By Saturday wo cams to tho' conclusion thuro must bo' a slump in goats, but when somo ono brought us a copy of tlio local paper, wo found our advertisement had strayed ,into tho "For Sale" icolumn, and was ignptninlously sandwiched b^t.woen between a "magnificent fur stole, scarcely worn, latest stylo, cost ISs. fid.-sacrifice .10s." and "Bahy's bassinette, parrot cngo and 4
