(To the Editor Peak JZrfl Express. J Sir, — I am more than pleased to see that my humble verse has attracted the-attentionofMr. West. He gently hints that the prompting factor of my thome is 'some ether chap's sister.' Iu this he is mistaken. If lie reads again and reads between the lines, lie will see that the woman alluded to does not exist in the nesn. She is a mere crea tion of the fancy, boru of the mind aud nurtured on the imagination. She be comes tho mistress of ones soul, the companion of his every thought, whose presence realises the base surroundings of a sordid world, and makes the most dreary of existences endurable. Per mit me to introduce Mr. West to such a woman and let us hope that beneath her benign influence, he will forget the blandishments of the soft voiced sirens he so feelingly writos of. Though my experienco of woman may not bo. so' varied as Mr. West's, still I may remind him of the fact that I was not reared in a monastory. Neither love I to quote one of o...
