Constable Barnes' services were required

rushed in and grappled with Fitzgerald,
placing him under attest. There was no
struggle, as tbe big prize fighter consented to go along without any trouble.

"The road from Dutimore Junction to
Kootenav Landing is in as perfect a
condition as it is possible to make it.
This is tbe third year that the traffic department has had to ballast the line.
The work d-me in iy io by the steam
shovel outfit with Engineer Montgomery
aud under tbe Immediate supervision of
Road master Erickson was excellent.
The quantity of ballast turned put beats
the record of any similar wurk done on
the system. Since Superintendent Bury
assumed charge of the division In February last with Fred Walker as train
master and chief dispatcher a marked
improvement In the movement of the
traffic has been noticed ami has met with
a full measure of appreciation of all the
shippers and conslgnes concerned."

The death  of  Anliie Dreiuner     Will
be sincerely regretted by every newspaper man in Canada who nad the
privilege of knowing him, Mr. Itrein-
ner wus one of the cleverest writers
und ono of the best all-round Journalists Canada bus produced. His
humor wus of thnt 'quiet' quality
which never grows stale; his general
knowledge wns wonderfully wide und
correct; his descriptive work was
racy und entertaining, und at the
Bunio time correct; und his heavier
articles Were of the lirst order. He
was a whole-souled, geiiiul, com-
panlonable man, who made friends
wherever he Went; he wus always the
life und soul of any company he
found himself in, uud he wus one of
those rare conversationists who never tired those who listened lo him.
He wus generous ami his friendship
wns warm uud loyal. He wus the
enemy of conventionality, pretence,
hypocrisy and fraud, and never failed
to give these a solid rap when opportunity offered, As a newspaper
inn ti he stood in the front rank, und
his Influence upon the press irf Canada Will he felt for muiiy years to
come. Ood rest thee, Arch to; thy
friends will miss thee sadly.—Hamilton Spectator,

Wellington's porsonal tasto and
habits like those uf most great men,
were Very simple. He cured not fur
show or pomp of any kind. Instead
of building a counterpart to Blenheim, for which money hud been voted, he bought und improved Struth-
fleldsaye, a common country gentleman's house. In his diet he wus very
abstemious, even to the injury, it
appears, of his health. He, ot
course, kept u lirst-rute French cook
for his guests. The cook, it was
Bald, one day suddenly resigned. The
Duke, in astonishment, asked the reason. "Wus his salary insufHelent?"
"No, my salary Is very handsome,
Iiut I um not appreciated, 1 cook
your dinner myself, u dinner lit fur
a King, You say nothing. 1 go mil
uud leave the under cook to cook
your dinner. He gives you a dinner
