\ THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. I The deposition of the mad kind, Ot.to ol' Bavaria, which has just boon deci ded, recalls to the minds of all music lovers the genius of the greatest mo dern composer, Richard Wagner. For it was King laid wig, the brother of the poor madman, who befriended Wagner in the days of his greatest poverty, and whoso patronage enabled him to produce his immortal worlts. King Ot 10 himself was a friend of this hero of music. Wagner's operas, "Lohengrin," "Tannhaiisi r," and Ihe jther master pieces of his "Nicbeiungenlied," nre now popular throughout Ihe world. But when he produced them they aroused the hatred of his critics and a passion ate storm of ridiculc and contempt. 1-Ie wrote some of theni in direst poverty and with the despairing courage of a man who knows that he is in advance of his time They reflect the storm and stress of his own life and charac ter, but they reveal also the nobility and idealism and tendernes...

KAISER'S EXERCISE WIELDS TOE AXli. It Is understood that during his usual winter residence at Potsdam the Emperor William, on the recommenda tion of his physicians, has devoted a good deal of time and energy to the chopping of wood (says the Berlin cor respondent of "The Telegraph.") Clad In Court huntinfe dress, the monarch could be seen almost every morning in the grounds of the palace—of the pri vilege of access to which the public makes but little use at this time of the year—vigorously plying a saw on the trunks and branches of trees, and then, with undiminished energy, hew ing the short logs into pieces of con venient size for burning. In this occupation he was assisted by an expert workman, placed at his disposal by the management of the Royal gardens: Not infrequently Ihe Empress watched her consort at his unfamiliar exercise, and jocularly measured up the pile of lirewood to see whether the prescribed daily task had been fully accomplished, while oc casionally an aide-de-ca...

DEAR FOOD IN CANADA DEMANDS TARIFF REVISION [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914
DEAR FOOD IN CANADA DEMANDS TARIFF REVISION Emphasising the fact that tariff re form and the abolition of food taxes is now the policy of the Dominion Libe ral party, Sir Wilfrid Laurler put for ward a strong plea for the Western farmers in the Debate on the Address in the House of Commons last night (states the Ottawa correspondent of "The Daily News"). He declared that for the first time in 15 years unemployment was rife in the leading cities of Canada. Three years ago there was not a man out of work in the city of Winipeg, but now there were over 3000, and all over the country men were .seeking work and not finding it. Altogether, he believed that there were something like 100,000 unemployed in the Dominion. The way to relieve the depression, said Sir Wilfrid, was to reduce the high cost of living by means of down ward revision of the tariff. The cry ing need of the West is fresh mar kets, and the removal of the duties on wheat would be a well-merited concession to the farmers, w...
