He asked all members to push for ward the interests of the Association, which he considered was a very laudable and necessary institution. It had been said that the A.P.D.A. would class with other similar societies.

RALPH CONNOR'S BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902

RALPH CONNOR'S BOOKS. " The Man From Glengarry," " The Sky Pilot," " Black Rocks," Ralph Connor, published by Hodder and Stoughton. "The Man from Glengarry" will be welcomed by the thousands of readers who have learned to kuow and admire Ralph Connor through read ing " Black Rock" and " The Sky Pilot." It is ■ very much the same class of book ns those which | have preceded it, but it has now interest which I is peculiarly its own. It shows the same ds scriptivo power; gives a faithful portrait of the lumber men; describes the conflicts of the Scotchman and Irishman, and does full justice to the shrewd common sense of the Yankee. In its general plan it is more like " Black Rock" than " The Sky Pilot." You will not care much for " Black Rock" after " The Sky Pilot," oue said to me, " it lacks the delicate touches of the latter hook. Some pi its descriptions seem to bo forced, and there is not tlio artistic finish in the first book which Ralph Connor managed to put into his secoud aud ...

Woman's Column. ["Poppy" will be glad to receive and answer any communications addressed to her, care of the Editor, 35 York-street.] [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902

Woman's Column. [" Poppy will be glad to receive and answer any com munication? addressed to her/, care of tho Editor, iJo York-street.] I Dear Mona,— I How do you like the new* liats turned up ! at the back ? They are steadily gaining ground, and deservedly so, [ think. That is, provided they have just that cachet of smartness which saves a new mode from making the wearer appear, well—odd. I saw one yesterday, which promptly gained my spare affections. 'Twos in reseda, lined with tucked mousselinc de soie of shaded pastel tints. Just above the hair, a twist of palest blue ribbon, with a soft crushed bow at either side. The front was lifted just a trifle, and the sides drooped sufficiently to frame the face. Our good friend, hydrangea, supplied the pastel tints again in front, and with a couple of quaint old moonstone hatpins it was complete, and lovely. The turban toques hold their own, and the pancake hats are still very much in evidence. To the last, we indignantly deny sitting o...

They Had Their Eyes Opened [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902

They Had Their Eyes Opened A little boy once called on aparish priest witli a basket of kittens, imploring the priest to buy one from him. "No use," said the priest, "Ihave no need of a kitten." "But," said the would be seller, "these kittens ain't like: ordinary kittens; they're good papist kittens." "Come, come," said the priest, "that's too smart entirely. Be off with you now, and sell ■ your kittens when ye will." The next week the boy turned up at a farmer's house in the parish, who was aProtestant, and where, at the yery time the boy called, the priest happened to be visiting. Presenting his basket of kittens ' to the farmer, ho importuned him. to buy, one " Naw, naw,". said the farmer, " we've no need o1 cats hero; too many cats already."

The Choir Gallery. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902

The Olioir Gallery. Repoets state that Bon Lorenzo Perose who appeared as a meteor on the musical horizon a year or two ago is still at work. His latest: production entitled " Moses" said to be his most important work was produced at Milan on November 16th before a large audience. He is already at work upon another work to be entitled " The Apocalypse." So far his works have not excited any great measure of appre ciation in England, the home of oratorio, and have not yet reached us at all so far as public performance is concerned. In Milan his ad mirers formed a Society to perform the works from his pen, but they closed their first year 28,000 lire behind. One of the latest composers to catch the ear of the British public with some measure of success is Mr. Coleridge-Taylor, whose " Hia watha " again appears in the prospectus of the Royal Choral Society this season, and is to be rendered in its entirety for the third time in consecutive seasons. One or all of its three sections have...

For Sunday Afternoon. "A GOOD SALVAGE." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902

for Sunday Afternoon. "A GOOD SALVAGE." *' My brethren, if any among you do err from the truth, and one convert him; let him know, that lie which converteth a sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall cover a multitude of sins."—James v., 19-20. Thus abruptly this Epistle closes. There is neither»salutation nor doxologv, and it would appear that James had intended to write at greater length, but had suddenly been inter rupted and had laid down his pen. The incom pleteness of the letter lends color to the ancient supposition that just at this point James was surprised by the tumultuous Jews, and sud denly hurried to his martyrdom. If the sup position be correct, how solemnly ?hese words stand out upon the page—the last words of a generous, wholesouled evangelist. No words could be fitter for the close of a soul-saving ministry than these, setting forth, as they do, the crowning importance of the task of convert ing men and women from the error of their ...

' At the Sign of the Red Pale." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902

' At the Sign of tlie Red Pale." Somebody once asked the poet Rogers why he said such disagreeable things. u Why," said he, " I have such a weak voice that if I said pleas ant things nobody would hear me." There is much philosophy in this answer, and it supplies the only explanation for the appearance of many books and the temporary faino of authors not a few. One handles many novels these days, sharp, biting, shrewd, clever, critical, overturn ing, and attacking, before oue reaches a story that is frank, cheeilul, inspiriting. You remember Mrs. Poyser's description of the two parsons of Hayslope. "You know she would have her last word about everything- -she said Mr. Irvine was like a good meal o1 victual, you were the better for him without thinking ou itj; and Mr. Hyde was like a dose o' physic, he gripped you and worreted you, and after all he left you much tho same." This is perhaps the diflereuce between the greater and the lesser lights in literature. # # # *■ Nothing is more ...

No question about that, surely, j Bishop Stone Wigg, of New Guinea, went to Sydney Domain on a recent Sunday and preached a splendid sermon, during which he exhibited part of & skull, the relic of & cannibal feast, the details of which wete vividly de scribed.

Elevation of Canon Gore. CONTRIBUTED. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 February 1902

Elevation of Canon Gore. [Contributed], Xisws from England informs us that legal proceedings are being taken to prevent the consecration of Canon Gore, as Bishop of Worcester, the hearing being fixed for next Monday. In affording its constituents the news, the Daily Telegraph reprinted from the Review of He views, a whitewashing of the Reverend gentleman, written in Mr. Stead's very best style. The eulogy of Canon Gore is right enough from a given standpoint. Every man has qualities which recommend him, but he may also possess many disabilities which totally unfit him for a certain position. The gentle man in question is derhaps everything the paper claims for him, and no one could read his Lttx JSIundi without acknowledging his high literary ability. But that very work makes it clear that his disabilities for the office as a Bishop of the Church of England are greater than his estimable qualities. That he would make an ideal Bishop of Home there c<in be no two opinions, ...
