The city has served notice on the

This is undoubtedly true; it is. also
true that the gas is better now than
it has been for some time. The Star

the gas company. The gas company is
suffering from the same trouble that
afflicts the city in regard to the elec electric

some months, during the time that

company was using coke. A ; few

supply of 'coal, and the gas immedi immediately
ately immediately became better. As to wljetherjit

this is gone is a question no one can
answer. It must be remembered that
the city hasn't been able to obtain
coal for, its light and water plant. It's
the Star's opinion that the gas com company
pany company will do the best it can, and as
well as anybody can. The present
superintendent was with it when ;it
was making the best of gas a, few
years ago, and we; have no doubt that
he is doing to the best of his ability
now. If the'gas company gets into! a
position where it can't furnish gas, &r.
can't furnish it at what is considered
a reasonable price,; it had better be
allowed to shut down. We wouldn't
advise the city to revoke its charter.

(Florence H. Ottm&nn)
Lent is almost upon us; the season
of the church's year, when all of its!
people should put aside worldly
amusements and frivolity and look
more towards the spiritual side of;
life. At the present time when there j
are so ;many things that individuals
are asked to assist in it would seem
that the observance of Lent by every everyone
one everyone would be desirable. "If in "union
there is strength," surely there would
be great gain in spiritual and moral
power if all people would give them themselves
selves themselves to self denial, accompanied by
those spiritual exercises that tend to
develop the deeper religious life and
forces in humanity.
A fast before Easter has been ob observed
served observed since 'the f earliest Christian
times, but the period of its duration
varied in different countries and ages,
down to the seventh century the
fforty "days" has been that by some to
point to the time of our Lord's fast
ing in the wilderness, while he was
undergoing temptation, and also to
the! tune, where' His soul was separat separated
ed separated from His body, after His 'death
and before His' resurrection; however,
at the Council of Nicaea, this period
of "forty days of consecrated fast
ing before Easter, was taken for
granted, as if long in use.
Lent was, even in the earliest cen
turies, a season of humiliation, absti
nence from t pleasure and of fasting
and prayer. The church makes no
law along these lines, Tut leaves it to
the individual to determine what he
should dotVjThere is a tendency in the
human mind to disregard a duty,
when no specific time is appointed;
so if the whole year was given us,
during which "time" we were told Ur
givei forty days : to i meditation and
prayer, we would either put it off
from time, to time or else neglect it
entirely, and so It is well that the
church has set aside a definite time
for such! things- and what time could
have' been" selected more appropriate
than this "Lenten" or spring season,
when 'all nature is awakening out of
her wintry sleep?
;As I have said": The question of

found out, is a very modest little

views, interviews, and she talks very little about
herself. However, in the' December

an interesting account of herself, for
"Two weeks ago I was in a mov(

Behind me sat a. woman who was

Miss Clark, says she would have
very little salary left if slie' answered
all her mail questions as to her age,
love affairs and husbands, so for anx anxious
ious anxious inquirers she states: ?
."I know that my good fortune 'is

song, so wild and, free, so weird and
sweet-a song of Jan's, one he had
taught her, for Jan could. write songs,
and no greater joy had Gundrun than
in singing them.
