for one cent, since that is what "gazette" originally
signified. The Venetian Gazette of the sixteenth cen-

One of the umost notable Christmas numbers last
year was that issued by the Quebec Daily Telegraph.
A great deal of original matter was published in th?s
nutnber, differentiating, it fronm the average run oPf
special issues. The illustrations were many of them
unique, reproducing old pictures gleaned from many
sources. Typographically, the issue was most pleas-
ing, and considering that it was got out at a time when
the Telegraph office was disorganized, owing to the
fire, it is a miartel of good workmanship. Frank
Carrel, the publisher, is to be congratulated on his
spleiidid publication. STi ?
The Calgary Daily Herald for December 2I con- STR O NG

tising manager stated that every line of advertisinig in DURA BLE
the paper was paid for at full card rates.
On December 20 the New Liskeard Speaker pub-
lished by Stephenson & Son, issued a special Christ- A aood papr worth
onas number of 24 pages, containing half-tone por- 5 ,y
traits of-many of New Liskeard's promninent business if nan e
inen. The issue is a most creditable one, and demon-s

its territory. Several original articles on New Lis-
kearl and n Temiskaning appeared in the issue.
From the Canada Paper Co., Limited, again
comnes their handy desk diary for i1o8, containing 1
a sheet for each week, divided into sections for the I ~
six business days. Each sheet is a sample of some J r
particular product of the company's mills, and a de- per i
scription of the stock isonrinted at the bottom. The
idea is an excellent one and has evidlently proved
successful in previous years.

ENGLISHMEN IN CANADA.
The Stationery and Printing World, an English pub- 17 x 22-13 Ilb.-s
lieation, printed in London, quite rightly takes exeeptiol i 16 b .
to a statemient made about Englishmen at a meeting held
by striking photo engravers in Toronto. The artiiee 17 x 28-16 l
reads: "Members of the Toronto Trade Union of Photo |24 Ibs.

officers in their meeting, that he would fight the Toronto R SA
Engraving Company until every 'damned English pho'i_

The above objectionable remarks made by this uninon f untin u in f ( io.
official will be condemned by all fair-minded Canadians. ui
That a feeling of enmity exists towards some English-
men in this country, cannot be denied. But that feeling HAMILTON and MONTRA
is existent only towards a certain class-those who bri an
it upon themselves. Let an Englishman or any other per-
son show that he is of the true breed and he will be
treated as it becomes him. The Engllihman in Cantia i
inust do as Canadians do if he would be suceeuful.
