The Presbyterian Fair.
Tho ladled of the First Presbyterian
church opened their fair yesterday af
ternoon on the ground floor of tho An
thraclte building. A largo collection of
fancy articles and pretty things were
exposed for sale and. a large number
of visitors thronged the artistically
decorated rooms nil the afternoon nnd
evening. Supper was served at little
tables and a good variety of edibles
were on a printed bill of fare. The
rooms were artistically decorated, hol
ly and Christmas greens forming a lav
ish display. The attention of all pass
ers was attracted to tho fair by the
prominence of Its location nnd by a
number of artistically made fancy
wares being hung up In tho windows
facing Main street and Sixth avenue.
The fair will continue this afternoon
and evening. Tonight the ladles will
serve a iO-cent supper from 5 to 8

has donated n range and gas for this

A Peculiar Ceremony.
On Monday evening, when the silk
mill at Simpson closed down for the
day and the workers started for home,
they were met a short distance awav
by a number of strikers, who, equipped
with fifes and drums, constituted a
"guard of honor," nnd, playing "The
Rogue's March," escorted them nil the
way down Relmont street into the cen
tral part of the city. Some of the work
ers did not like the attentions of tho
lifers and escaped by running awav.
Others seemed to enjoy the notoriety
and marched along with jaunty step,
keeping time. It was said that the
performance would be repeated last
evening, but It was probably decided
not to do so, for there wns no sounds
of the shrill chatter of drums up Simp
son way last night.

Frank G-. Carpenter's Account of the
Working of Russia's Diplomacy
In the Christmas number of tho Sat
urday Evening Post, Finnk G. Car
penter, who has recently spent, the
better part of a year In tho east, gives
many facts of Russia's advance In
Asia, and relates tho following Inci
dent: "The powers have practically agreed
that Manchuria lb to be the property
of Russia, and within a short time, In
all probability, all tho Chinese terri
tory beyond the Gteat Wall will ba
long to the czar, Tho boundury lino
between Siberia and Alongolla Is being
slowly pushed southward.
"Dining a visit to Pekln some years
ugo I heard a tradition ns to how
Russia once acqulrtia a big slice of
Chlnn. There was n dispute about tho
boundary line, 'which tho Russians
had moved out so as to Include a largo
amount of Manchuilan and Mongolian
soil, A war wus Imminent, and the
Chinese, as usual, yunted to settle mat
ters by compromise, Tho Russians
consented and brought forth a imp
showing tho territory thoy demanded.
Tho Chinese threw up their hands In
horror and paid their lives would be
endangered If thoy presented any such
a tteaty to their emperor. 'All right,'

An Illustration of Sir Wilfred Lau

It wns while In opposition that Sir
Wilfred did his hardest campnign
work, and, just previous to the elec
tions of live yeais ago, he made an av
erage of three speeches a day. Senutor
Dandurand, who accompanied Sir Wil
fred (who was then plain Mr. L,aurler)
on that tour, tells the following tale:
"One day when Mr. Laurler wns suf
fering from a frightful cold, but had
mado two speeches, he was nearly In a
state of collapse, He was to bo at St.
Therese In the evening and, It being
a Joint meeting of Conservatives and
Liberals, his best efforts were needed.
W arrived at St. Therese at live In
the evening, and, as I was busy with
other things, I loft Mr. Laurler to go
up to his loom and rest. 1 was awav
perhaps half an hour and upon return
ing, I started to go up to seo how
ho was gotlng along. I felt my way
along the dnrk passageway leading to
the stairs, and was about to go up,
when I saw a dark mass crouched just
to tho right. It was our future great
premier. Hu had dropped there ex
hausted. We got him Into bpd and
called In a country doctor, and when
S o'clock came wo had to carry him to
tho meeting. The Conservative speak
ers had their first say, and they (Inyed
Mr, Laurler and tho Liberals unmerci
fully. Mr, Laurler sat here Jn a greut
fur coat, not moving a muscle, The
minute his turn came , however, he
jumped up, throw off his coat and be
gan to speak. It was one. of tho finest
speeches of his life, and he carried tho
meeting by storm. He spoke with mag
nificent vigor for over an hour, and
when ha was through fell back Into
our arms exhausted."
