Most of the ills hssociatcd with the man Lgement of joint stock concei'ns arise from the extreme laxity of supervision exercised by shareholders over the actions of those whom they-often nominally-appoint to administer their affairs. If scirip owners manifested a close interest in all things ap pertaining to the conduct of their own business there is no doubt directors, gene ral managers, and secretaries would each end all attain a higher efliciency.

"If you ask.my opinion on the matter," said Mr. Milne, "I will give it very frankly: This thing is simply abomination; destructive not only of'a proDper sense of "decency, but also of that spirit of modesty which, in the case of a young woman especially, is her best defence and chiefest glory."

A tilt against public opinion was made by the IBishop of Batadurst in preadhing at St. Paul's Cathedral. He combated what he described as the general mo dern belief that public opinion could not go astray, and must be accepted as the final word. There were politicians, he said, who were always anxious to find ?which way public opinion was pointing, so that tihey might run along in front and pretend to lead.
