THE CITY COUNCIL
Tho regular meeting of City Council on Monday evening was punctuated hy unusual features and drew
a large altondanco'of,visitors, tliere
being probably sixty peoplo present
at the opening of tbe session, who
manifested a lively interest in
cerlain portions of llie proceedings.
All the members of tho Board
wero presenl. Communications
from A. Purvis, of tho B. C. _, It,
re visit to Chilliwaek, anil Ciii'boiilil
& Grnnl re By-laws were received
ami lilod.
A petition was rend from It. Summers and other residences of Vale
iinui, asking that a certain street
light which had been moved tho
distanco of ono polo, bo ro-placod,
Aid, Cnrloton moved tliat tho petition be received and lilcd. Aid. McGillivruy objected, and stated that
the light as now placed did not serve
ns good ii purpose as formerly while
Aid. Carleton maintained that the
light was of muoh greater benoflt
to a larger number of people ns now
plnced, which was tlie reason for
the change', Aid. McGillivroy
stated that Mr. Summers promised
to bo present to support the petition,
but as he was not, he would let the
subject drop. The interesting document was then received and filed.
W. J. Price again wrote the Council regarding the working out of the
retail milk license. The latter stated thai one hundred gallons nf milk
wore sold privately in the city eacli
day, Which interfered considerably
with their business. For the sale
of this quantity of milk, no license
wns asked. Yet his firm wus requested to pay. a license which be
considered unfair. The Council
could seo nn way out of the difficulty
and again the matter wns dropped.
Notice of tlio appointment nntl
sittings of a commission to investigate and ro|sirt on the workings of
tho Mumoipal Clauses' Act [or tbo
Provincial Government: was received
ami tiled.
tl. ll. Ashwell wrote regarding a
quantity of lumber tbnt had lieen
piled against one of bis buildings
on Victoria  street.     Aid.   Gervan
stntod that the lumber was on private
property and he did not think the
Council bud uny jui'isdictnii in such
a case.
A petition wns rend from II. J.
Burlier nnd others, againsl the construct ion nf a cemout walk nn the
nnrtli side of Prineess nve. botween
Westminster nnd Main streets.
Laid nver fnr nne wook.
An invitation being oxtondetl to
uny present tn address tlie Council,
Mr. Graham, who has lieen in tin-
city's employ up until Sunday asked the ronson of the sorvioes of himself nnd team lieing dispensed with
by tho Roud Supervisor O'Hoarn.
In answering the question the
Roud Supervisor stntod thai ho considered Grnbnm's services no longer
nf value to him, nud thut the ronson
was immaterial toanyliody.
At this point the fireworks stnrliil.
Mr. Graham thought a reason shnuhl
Ik' given, Aldermen McGillivroy
uud Goodland concurring. Mr.
Graham then  proceeded to plnce
charges against the Roud Stlporln-
tcniloiit.   lie claimed Mr. O'Hearn
know nothing of roud grading, hnd
snld supplies to the oily  while  n
monibor of tho Counoll, hml used
the city's horse nnd rig for private
purposes dining working hours, hail
dune private work at the OXponsO
f the city and also used and iliiiiing-
ed cily equipment ou his ranch, hud
graded streets iu the vicinity of his
"Wn prii|HTty without the knowledge
nf the Council, ami stated thut the
Itouil Suporlntondonl bud snid tlull
us ii Yankee he was Iih, smart la lie
liulliliixeil hy IhosoCanadians, Those
charges Graham culled Mr. O'Heurn
tn deny.
On motion nf Aid. Eckert nml
Gorvan u spoollll meeting wus culled
fnr at ton n'olnok nn Tuesiliiy In
tako up tho whoio mutter uml investigate. Mr. Graham wns asked
to plnce his charges boforo.tho Coun-
cil in writing.
Tho rule lly-lnw fnr 1019 wus
then Introduced ami road three
times. The rule this your will lie

nn Improvements making n total of
lo l"l.    The rule  is  innilo  up us
follows: Gonoral Rovonno fi l-i;
schools I 'I-I: limns !l 8«4| lire protection (which is n tux on improvements only) one mill. If tuxes are
paid boforo Nov. I, a rebate of ■ -If

Tuxes nnt paid by Deo, ill luxes will
bear interest at rate of 8 percent
until pnid.
Indemnity By-laws for Mayor
and Alderman wore passed, The
Mayor annexes the munificent salary
of $200 while the Alilornien will
swell thoir bank accounts to the
extent of *I(H) each.
Aid. McGillivary drew attention
to what be considered faulty foundations for sidewalks, on PrinccsB
avo. and College streel. The Council doclded to inspect tho sumo on
Tuesday forenoon, In answer to A
question by tho same Aldormnn it
was stntod that no inspector wus
employed on the sidewalk construction. The propel' construction of
walks wus left tn tlic contractor
whose reputation for honesty wus
such that the the Board of Wnrks
chairman, considered the city was
guaranteed good work. Tho
walks constructed under an inspector wore the poorest in the city
Aid. Goodland wanted to know-
how tno city wns going to finance
the cost of ull the work being done
should the city debentures not be
sold. Aid Eckert stated that the
Hank hnd assured the Council that
temporary loans could he secured.
The interest would be one per cent
higher, which he considered would
be lietter business thun stopping
the various improvements now lieing proceeded with. Aid. (iootl-
laml thought a halt should be culled, or nt lenst no further new
work stnrted. The work now
under way and the principal roads
should bo put in good shone for the
winter season. It was finally
decided that the Council as a whole
should designate where further
work should lie done, and a tour of
inspection will ho made.
Scavenger, roud nnd dog tuxes nre
not lieing pnitl with suflicent
alacrity to be approved by tho
Chairman of finance, nnd instruc
tions wore given to have theso contributions gathered in ot onco. Regarding the scavenger tux the Free
Press man |Kiintetl out that a tax of
SO had Is-en assessed him and that
no service luul boon given.
There aro many other such instances.
The motion of February last to
accept deed of blind lane to rear of
MoCulcbenn property on Westminster street was rescinded.
Aid. (loodland wonted tlio Council to finance $050 ns its share nf a
loan toward a  82">(X) building  for
the fnir grounds. Tho Government
Iind promised (1260 and tiie Municipality would bo asked for 8U.TO.
The members of the Council snw no
wny in which tbey could provide
the limn fnr this purpose.
Aid. Eckert tlumght tlmt iu connection witli tlie construction of side
walks on one side of the street nnly,
thut residents nn the oilier side
should puy a portion nf the oust,
ns they hnd the use of the wulk 'ind
tholr properties wore boneftltcd by
the sume.     When   this   rule   wus
followed the later construction of u

It is prohuhlc tlmt such provision

Joo Trlbhle. as he called himself, rode
on. A few yards farther on bis horse
Humbled and Ml so suddenly that .lo_
was pitched over bis bead, to fall In a
crushed heap anion* some rocks. Ha
lay very still, while the horse scram-
tiled tO bis feet, sniffed at his imiMer's
Uiu-onscloiis form and theu limped nway
for assistance, whinnying pitifully.
Joe Opened bis eyes upon darkness
There was a handncu over his ryes, and
lie could see nothing, but be knew that
tie rested upon a soft bed. A llfgf COOl
hand touched bis wrist, nud a Bagel
•pressed upon bis pulse,
"DOCtOT," .Ine huskily whliprred.
"Abu!" snld u mellow TOlCfl, "Coming iroaod. ure you?   Feel pretty well

"Oh. yes! Ton cat't be moved until

conscious that sume one wus bending
over him.
"Well, stranger." said a deep, retw*
neul voice. "I n*cUuu yuu re awulte
uow?"
"Who are you?" was Joe's hurried
question.
There was a little pause hefore tbe
auswer came. "My name's tStuttU.
Why?"
"Nothing, only 1 thought lt sounded
—like somebody I used to know,"
murmured .loo. stukiug hack upon hla
pillow.
"1 wonder If you wouldn't like me to
help you outer those cluthes you gut on
und net you Into bed In a decent way?"
went on the voice, and when .loe gratefully asseuled the owner uf-Hhe voice
helped him wllh u woman's tenderness
tu undress and clothed him in clean
underwear and a clean coarse nlglit-
Bhlrt.
"I'm mightily obliged to you, -stranger." murmured .lue drowsily as lie
sank on his pillow after swallowing a
cup of hot broth.
"You're welcome." paid the other
solemnly, and, tiptoeing out. he closed
the door.
.loe did not awake again until the
next morning. He knew that the windows were wide often, for he breathed
tlm fresh, sweet air, and he could hear
the song of birds. His eyelids felt
very stiff nnd sore, and he was grute-
l*iiI for the tmndage that covered them.
Mr. Smith cume ln presently und,
after a pleasant greeting to the injured uian. bathed his face atid hands
and brought some breakfast to him.
.loo bit into u hot corn mutllu. nnd
his hand fell upon tbe counterpane.
He turned bis blindfolded eyes toward
tbe stranger.
"Who mude these muffins?" he nsked ln u choking voice.
Thero wns a hesitating silence be-
fore Mr. Smith replied. Tben. "My
daughter made them." he replied.
"Your daughter: Why-who—excuse
me," stumbled Joe. "but they ure like
those my wife makes, and 1 never tasted uny others like 'em!" He hastily
resumed his breakfast, und the portion
of bis face below tbe bandage glowed
redly.
Mr. Smith snld nothing.
Wheu the doctor appeared he declared that Joe hnd a little fever, and
be changed his medicine. Once more
Joe beard three voices In consultation lu the next room, ne could now
recognize Smith's voice nnd that of
the doctor, but tbe third one was tbat
of a woman, pitched low and soft and
eluded bis searching mind.
"Where have 1 heard that voice before?" he asked himself again and
again as the dnys passed by, but tbe
answer did not come—tben.
During those long days and nights
of pain nnd helplessness Joe Pebble
had leisure to think over whnt he had
done, nml he resolved that wben bo
recovered tbat he would go north
hum!n nnd endeavor to become reconciled lo his wife and ber father.
Tbe thought of this coming Journey
did much to hasleu his recovery.
On the evculng of tbls particular
■"ny—a Sunday It was—be lay there
nlone In tbe room. Presently Smith,
came In aud talked to blm. Tbey
talked on various matters, uud finally
Joe (old him about bis former life in
Wyoming and ended by confiding bis
Bin to the old man. He told It all-of
his wild longing for freedom, bow he
bud fought tt for days before making
up bis mind to leave bla wife and
how, after tbe Irrevocable atep hud
been taken, of tbe remorse he bad
Buttered."   -•• •*<- •-
"1 thiuk of them two helpless ones j
day and night," he groaned. "What
has become of Ihem? A coyote
wouldn't have acted nieaner'n 1 did.
Dou't God ever give folks a chance to
mike good when they've sinned'.'"
Tbe elder mun did uot answer for ■ ;
long time.    Then  be arose and bent,
over the bed for n brief instant.    "I '
believe be does, son: I believe be will."
he said solemnly, and Joe heard bho
puss from the room and close the door.
l-'rom the room overhead he heard
the murmur of voices long into (he
night. They were talking when hn
fell asleep, and once he stnrted wide
awake became be thoiiRht be heard a
woman's sobs. "Don't cry. Gertie; everything U all right." be murmured
drowsily and went to sleep again.
Tbe next duy the doctor cnine and
removed the blttdlgO.
After the doctor had gone Joe waited Impatiently for Mr smith to come
In. He was eager to see lhe face of
the mun who had been no kind to It I Hi.
All tit once n bulky form tilled the
dourwuv, nnd Mr. Smith's slow, dell Item I *,• step approached ihe tied. In iho
dim light .lues eager eyes did not at

of   his father In law,
"Father!" he murmured brokenly nud

"Son!" said the older mnn solemnly*
nnd he laid h • hund upon Joe's dark
hair in the old familiar caress, for
the two hnd been very fund of each

"It has been you all along?" asked
Joe after ru-hlle.
"Yes." said the other. And In a few
wonts he told Ihe repentant man that
after h ■ desertion Gertrude and he
bad left Wyotnlug and come down into

SHIP  CARVING.
An Art That Went Out With tha Old
Wooden Warships.
An almost forgotten profession la
tbat of ship curving. For many centuries, dowu to tbe begluulng ot the
nineteenth, the ornamentation of vessels, especially meu of war, was profuse. Intricate aud ttorid. The curving
oo tbe United States line of buttle
ship America, launched iu 1781! aud
presented to France, wilt give some
ldeu of the extent to which this wub
tarried.
The figurehead wan a female figure
crowned with laurel representing
America. The right arm wua raised,
pointing to heaven. On the left arm
wus u buckler with a blue groundcar-
Tying thirteen slurs. Ou the stern of
tbe ship under the en bin windows appeared two large figures In bus-relief
representing "Tyranny" and "Oppression" bound and bleeding on the
ground. On the back of the starboard
quarter wns a large figure of "Mars."
On the highest pnrt of the stern appeared "Wisdom" nnd nbove ber bead
an owl.
Philadelphia furnished not only the
greatest ship designer in tbe United
States, but also the best ship carver lu
the world. William Hush. In this Held
he was without a rival, and to a wonderful technical skill be ndded un artistic sense ot beuuty and genius for
composition.
lie wns tbe first carver to give an
Idea of life and motion to n ship's figurehead. Fncti of his figureheads was
either tbe lifelike representation of a
person or some symbolic conception
expressed In exquisite carving. His
most noted productions were "Nature"
for the Constetlntton, the "Genius of
the United States" for tbe frigate of
tbat name and "The Itlver God" for
the Kast India ship Ganges. These figureheads were nine feet high und
eould be removed for repair or in action.— Harper's Weekly.

The Interest ln the grand sweepstake prizes in the several grain
classes of the International Dry-

premier premium offered for the best
bushel of hard wheat grown under
dry-farming conditions, or where the
annual precipitatinn Is less than 20
Inches, and where the land or any

attention, nnd many farmers are anxious tn possess it.
Wliile l!i. re Is no other prize offered of value equal to the tractor,

EDITORIAL   COMMENT
Another step in the campaign inaugurated li.v llie Cliilliwnck Merchants Association, for the curtailment nnd elimination of credits, was
tnki'ii mi Wednesday evening when
the appointment of a collector wns
mado, wim will act for and be back-
by all the members of the, association.
The rapid accumulation of a surprisingly lurge list uf bud and tardy dclit-
ni's during the past year or two, is
proving to be a serious menace to
the business life nnd interests of the
city, nnd firm methods must, be
adopted in order to protect hones!
effort and legitimate Inisiness. The
matlor in of more vital interest thnn
many are inclined to suppose, and
every reasonable' effort should bo
made on the part of those owing
bills to make settlement at an early
date. The increasing volume of outstanding debts and losses has forced
tho retail business interosts ot thc
city In jointly adopt measures for
tho placing i.f this phase »f community interesl on a more healthy
Imsis. Extended credits kill outer-
prise, retard growth, raise prices,
ruin business men, and encourages,
wlml in tho llnid analysis is
really stealing; in fuel wo, don'l know
of a single good quality in favor id
(be habit. A liuliil il is in nine
tenths of cases, and in a prosperous
ciiniiiiiuiil.v like Ibis where thoro is
production in ono furm nr other
practically the yeur round, there is
no snnc reason for its continuance,
and tho sooner tho systom is dono
away with the bottor it will be fnr
all concerned.

correctly gowned. You know

TOCK TAKING has just been completed, our books have been audited and I am pleased
to be able to announce to my many customers that my business for the past six
months has shown a marked increase over that of the previous year. My policy has
been : Buy the highest grade goods for cash, keep a well assorted stock and be at
your service any.hour of the twenty-four. The credit system has been a drawback
and adds considerably to the cost of doing business. I have decided to place my business on a
Cash Basis, and in the adopting of this new system, I hope to have the co-operation oi my many
customers. Por the future we will " Buy for cash, sell for cash, and share the increased prosperity

WHEN   A  SPINSTER  BECOMES  AN
OLD  MAID
So mucli depends upon personal
opinion. A girl id' fifteen would, if!
asked, probably call a woman ol' thirty [
an 'old maid,' bul uny woman of thut j
age would be very Indignant if so de-l
scribed in her hearing. So women j
look like old maids when thuy are
quite young ones, and some Blngle old j
ladies of sixty-live summers or su1
never looked old maidlsh in their J
lives.
It appears to be more a question of
manner, or perhaps one might say
mannerism rather than appi arance, i
tbat makes people describe certain
emeu as qld maids. trrltlbillty
and being (ldgetty, particularly over:
trifles usually earn u woman tho re* j
putatlon of being old inaldish. Some*
people would say thai a woman is'
an old maid when she has given up
nil hope oi ever being married, bm
tben .some people say thai a wo-
man docs not rcllngulsb thai hope,
in which caso tht re can be no old,
ma ills.
Statistics tell us that woman's j
(•linnets of getting married are ureal-1
est between the ages of twenty aud j
twenty-five. Reckoning her entire
chance of marrying as a hundred, her
chances stand al fllty-two per cent.;
nfter the age or thirty-live they drop!
down to three and three-ijuurlers per
cent. j

WOMEN   AND  PROFESSIONS
It is not often that a government
report contains matter especiallly of
interest to women; but the views of
Lord Haldane on the much discussed
topic as to whether they should be
excluded from the "professions" given in cvlderce before the royal commission on Ihe civil service, will ho
read with interest hy all women who
have lo depend upon themselves for
their living Though the inquiry
was supposed to touch the civil service only, the war minister was very
emphatic iu expressing his opinion on
lhe subject generally. He aald his
belief wus lhat the exclusion of women from a great, many professions
at the present time was the result of
superstition, and very little else. He
believed there was a greal many professions in which women were not
only qualified to do tho work, but
where they could be of the greatest
possible  use.
There wero certainly a great many
positions   In   th"  civil  service  which
women could till quite as well as men,
and   which   they  did  not   (111  at   thej
presenl time-higher   division   posts I
as well as others, '
Lord  Haldane was   questioned    by
Miss raldano as to whether he con-j
sldered that  post qualified  for hy ai
higher education, whatever   was   the
case with regard to lower posts should
receive equal pay In the case of wo-
men .uul  men.      lie replied  that  he
had previously said that   upon   that I
question  he had  found  it ditllcult to j
make up his mind.
it might he said that they,must pay
a man. no, what he was worth, not !
the cost of producing him. hut a living wage, because lie was the bread-1
winner for his wire and family, and!
Ihey ought to encourage him to have j
a wife and family, iu the interests of'
the stat-, and therefore be must be
paid something extra for heing a cit-i

REFORM    IN     SURGERY
That  surgeon>i  in  recent years,  in '
very recent years, have to some ex-
t.-nt come to the opinion that ihe unfortunate  person   who   mny    furnish
ihem opportunity for the display nf
tlieir skill in the use of saw and knife
Is himself worthy of some consideration rpart   from the beautiful opera*!
tion,  is  a  matter of congratulation,
not to the surgeons, but lo ourselves j
of the laity-     It   has   not   been   so!
many moons   ago   when   a   surgeon [

TOLD  BY  LORD WOLSELY
The little story below is Lord Wol!
so.ey's trlbut to the bravery of LlOUt.-l
General Gerald Graham, V.C., G.CB.,!
(1 C.M.G.:—At the siorming of the
Taku forts, Graham, who was in China i
with Gordon led the sappers, whose,
d'tty it was to lay the pontoon across1
the wet ditch siirroiindlng thu great
northern fort.
While superintending the operation
ho wus on horseback, nnd being al*
m sl Hie only mounted oillcer present,
afforded an easy mark to the Chin*!
MO matchlock men, who had already;
picked off fifteen of his sappers.
During the height of the uproar
caused by the firing of the great guns'
aud small arms, Lieut.-Colonel Wol-)
seiey, who was standing by Major1
Graham, having some re-nark to make
placed his hand on that officer's thigh
to draw his attention
Don't put your hand there* exclaimed Graham, wincing under me pain.
There's ji jlngle-ball lodged in my !• g.
It was the first notice he had taken
of the wound.
MANY   SEA   DEVILS
These animals aru quite numerous
along the coast 150 to 200 miles
south of here. They are adapted to
both salt und fresh water. A strange
featur. of their appearance in the
waters along the coast is that they
are usually accompanied by a school
of sea devils, great sea monsters frequently weighing as much as 4.r,00
pounds each. One of them whon harpooned hat*, been kuown to drag twenty boats, hitched tandem, each currying two men.
Such an experience came two or
three yep.rs ago at Aransas Puss to a
party of fishermen among whom
wero John W- Rohbins then stute
treasurer; W. G. Sterrett, present
state game, fish and oyster commissioner, und .1. W. .Maxwell, of Austin,
a not__ big game hunter nud fisherman. They were fishing just off the
little town of Tarpon when a sea
devil of extraordinary size came to
the surface near one of the boats.
A boatman sank a harpoon deep Into
its body, the harpoon being secured
to the Loat )>y a line. The sea devil
made off at Ughmlng speed. As the
boat to which it was attached passed
the boats each threw a line, and twenty boats currying 10 me-i were towed
by the giant animal. T.i-'y had stuck
to it for six hours, when it headed out
toward the ocean- Then the men
raised the <dgnul of distress and a
life-sav.ng crew on Harbor Island rower*, out and shot the monster.
HERMIT'S   ROMANCE j
'llie death of 'English Jack, the1
Hermit,' recalls a romance originating
In Loudon and ending pathetically iu
America. Knglish Jack —- nobody
knew liis right name—lived the last
forty years in a miserable hut situated in the woods a little way back
from the carriage road near Crawford, within twenty miles of New
York.
Hi* hut was a miserable affair, Ihe
ground floor serving as a sitting-room
ami kitchen, from whicli a ladder
took him into a pitiful hole in the
roof where In slept.
There he existed for nearly forty
years, almost balf the full term of
his life. He was born in London,
aud left an orphan while still a hoy.
Wandering about the streets one day.
hungry and tearful, he encountered a
Utile girl of five, who had lost her
father.
He helped her to find him, and from
that day their interests were one and
Ind' ■ islble, Mary's father, a man
named Slmmonds, secured a position
for ihe hoy on his ship, and at tlie
close "i* end- of several voyages he
made '■.!.* homo with Stmmonds and
Utile Mary. Hefore his last voyage
it was agreed that the two should

SEVERE ^NEURALGIA
Cured Through the   Use   of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills
You Cannot Forqet Your Corns
They pain too much. Perhaps you
hav- tried this, that and the other
remedy—you still have them. You
do not experiment when you use Putnam's Painless Corn Extractor. In
twenty-four hours the soreness is removed. In a day or two you are rid
of ihem, root and branch. Keep the
name in sight because it tells the
story. Putnam's Painless Corn Extractor.   Sold by druggists, price -ac.
There is Rn excellent reason why
, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured
the most severe cases of neuralgia,
sciatica and other complaints ln the
group known as disorders of the
nerves. This group also includes St.
f Vitus Dunce, partial paralysis and the
common iitato of extreme nervousness
and excitability. _;ach of these complaints exist became ihe:*.' Is something the matter with tho nervous
system. If fhe nerves have tone and
are strong and healthy you will not
have any of these complaints. 'Ihe
rensor. why Dr Williams' Pink Pills
cure nervous disorders Is, that they
restore work, run down nerves to
their proper stale of tone. They act
both ''Ireetly upon the blood supply
and the nerves. The highest medical authorities have noted that nervous troubles generally attack people
who are bloodless ami that the
nerved are toned when the blood Is
renewed. It is thun seen lhat Dr.
Williams' Pink Pillls cure nervous
disorders by curing the cause of the
trouble. The following is an instance. Miss Annie Jouoa, London,
Out,, says:- "Kor over a year I wus
an Intense sufferer from neuralgia,
which located lu my face and head.
The pain al times was so Intense that
1 could scarcely keep from screaming,
and nothing I was doing Tor the trouble si emed to help uie. As time
•Went on my whoio nervous system
was affected. At last when I felt
tliat my case was almost hopeless I
was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. The result of this treatment
was that I am now enjoying such
comfort as I had not known for years,
and only those who havo suffered
from neuralgic pains eau realize whnt
a blessing the Pills have been to me."

APPENDICITIS     CAUSES
The question has again heen raised
in nieillci | journals as to whether thu
Increase li lhe rrequenry or appendicitis in recent years may uot be due
to minute particles of iron- The old
millstones that ground so slowly ami
ground small enough in lhe old days
have fiassed uwuy, uud It is suspected
that these panicles of Iron come from
.the rollers now used tu grinding
wheat. Some medical authorities
suggest that these particles find
(heir way into the appendix where
they form the nucleus or n concretion. Cases uro cited where bullets
uud shot have been met with, having
come as a kind ot surgical dessert to
the eating of game; also bunches of
bristles from a too vigorous use of

Recently a number of Chinese children have been found in the streets
of Paris and taken before the magistrates .'ft vagabonds. These children
were brought to France by showmen
to pi r'orm as acrobats. After u few
month, theii performances having lost
Iheir novelty and ceased lo attract,
the m-.m-gers abandoned them. They
have hei a taken to the Chinese legation to be sent home. Hut they
don't want to go home. The beautiful clt> ol Paris Is more to their

It bi-a been discovered that kerosene lamps can be lighted with much
greater facility, especially when a
high wind is blowing If the wick
Is turned about half nn inch or more
above ibe top of the burner and then
turned down ugaln to Ita normal
height before striking the match. This
will not cause the tump to smoke,
hut will mnke lighting a simpler mailer, as the kerosene is allowed to saturate thoroughly the top of the wick
by this method.
