UTOPIANS DIFFICULT TO FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 5 March 1914

UTOPIANS DIFFICULT TO FACE. The building of Utopias has been a favorite recreation for imaginative men, writes the Editor of "The Irish Homestead." We do not believe that 1 latos Jtepublic was by any means the nrst attempt to imagine what the ideal human community would be like. v\ e have not the slightest doubt that all the buried civilisations were so dis agreeable to the people who lived in them that before they perished through self-generated diseases, philosophers or pnilosophicules were preaching ideals, wise or foolish, to all the discontented who would listen to them. AN IMPLICIT BELIEF. Our own age has been prolific in the manufacture of Utopias. William Moiris tried his hand at it. So did Mr Wells. So did Edward Bellamy and a imnit-t i °MerSi' There . is somewhere implicit in the human spirit a Lalief in the perfectibility of mankind. Ail re formers appeal to that spirit.

GETTING MARRIED QUIETLY N13W IDEAS IX WEDDINGS. Simplicity is to be the note struck in weddings taking place during: 1914 (says "The Daily News and Leader").

RECEPTION BEFORE THE WED ' DING. The giving of wedding presents, of course, will be as popular as ever, and so that all tile relatives and friends of the happy coupie may see these gifts a reception will be held at the bride's residence on the evening before the wedding day. But after with one or two near relatives, will return to the house to witness the de parture of the newly-wedded couple for their honeymoon.

TOWN TRAFFIC CONTROL BRUSSELS AND ANTWERP (By I-I. II. Gordon, L.C.C., in "The Dally News and leader") The population of the kingdom of Belgium numbers seven and a half millions. It contains cities like Brus sels, Antwerp, Liege and Ghent, each vvith a world-wide reputation. One ..ecalls with surprise that all these .itles and the rest of the kingdom letween them contain a population not more numerous than that of Greater London. Geography books leclare that Brussels has over 000,000 inhabitants. In reality the four square miles which constitute the city pro per are inhabited by loss than 180,000 persons, which is only slightly in ex cess of the population of the Metro politan Borough of Battersea. For political reasons, in order that the capital shall not become a serious rival to the State, it is divided into nine areas, each self-contained and completely independent. There are no visible boundaries. Even more curi ous is the ease of Antwerp. Within the same city walls three commu...

GLIMPSE OF PAST ENGLISH "WOMAN IN FRANCE. Madame Louis Latour touched a sub ject of peculiar interest to English women yesterday, when, in her French If.cture at the Grafton Galleries, she dealt with th& death of Henrietta of iSngland, the Duchess of Orleans (says the "Westminster Gazette" of Novem ber 2S). It was the most brilliant hour of her life when Louis XIV. sent her to Eng land as Ills ambassador to arrange tbe alliance. She was never forgiven for this by the Duke, her husband, and when she returned to France on June --S. 1GT0, not a single member of his family paid her the slightest attention. The Duchess was deeply chagrined, and she felt the affair much more deep ly when her husband surprised her at Versailles when she was talking poli tics with tho King, and made a violent scene. She entered the Queen's apart ments after that incident, and it is re carded that Mile, de Montpensier, who saw her, observed that she "thought shQ had seen a dead woman walking about wi...

CLOTHES AND THE MAN THE TURNCOAT. (By Harry Graham, in the "Westmin ster Gazette"). Three years ago no British statesman held a place in the popular estimation higher than that occupied by my unele. Sir Theodore Biffln. He was universally beloved and re spected in his constituency, and politi cal opponents sought in vain to cast him from a seat which his moral integ rity and immense wealth had long combined to render immune from suc cessful attack.
