Luiiii; Glutic-DeiiuicriU, that nt a big
.rriobmtiou ill Yokahuuiu "thero
wns onu juggler who filled and lighted a pipe, gave a fow pull's and then
swallowed the whole thing, lie
took a cli'inlc of water, whistled on
hin fingers, and then began putting
.riicko. from liis nose uud mouth,
Kvrny few seconds the bowl of his
'pipe., would pop out .of ....his mouth
nnd he would tako a proper smoke,
and then down the pipe would go
iignin. After lie had swallowed it
for the fourth time, lie pulled it out
of his sleeve nnd danced around,
smoking furiously. He played tricks
with and swallowed one egg, and,
niter many capers, took one, two,
three, fonr eggs out of his mouth,
one after another, and laid them on
tho table before him. Then he took
a piece of soft rice paper, folded it
and squeezed it into a round ball
and swallowed it. He slapped his
fan, spread and twirled it, and spit
out a thin ribbon of paper, and pulled it out by yards and yards until
there seemed to be no end to hit unravelling. He gathered the armful
up, pressed it into a bowl and poured
water en it, and, stirring up the
mess with a pair of chopsticks, began
eating long strings of macaroni The
bowl of apparently dampened paper
was passed before us to show that
it was genuine, slippery macaroni,
such as tho Japanese make from
buckwheat flour. This jnggler had
a shrewd, foxy old face, and his
grimaces, patomimes and poses were
as good as his tricks. His tongue
ran a steady stream of mnsical words.
He had an agile, springy tread, and
he did all his tricks alone, in the
open air, with only an old box Jo
hold his utensils, and the audience
standing in a ring around him."
M. Pephau, a Parisian gentleman,
has just invented a printing press
which bids fair to prove a veritable
boon to tho blind. This instrument,
saya a contemporary, will enable
those deprived of sight, not only to
print the raised letters which they
are able to read with their fingers,
but also the ordinary characters on
the same sheet of paper. The in
ventor, who has been ably assisted
in the construction of his instrument!
by M. Saint Gorgon, professor in the
school of art and comnicrce'aJ'AIIti
claims that by the new mechanism
the blind will not only be able to
coiiinrtiiiicnte with ench other with
grater facility than at present, but
will be enabled Ur form letters which
can bo road by everybody.
If there over wns n stupid superstition," says the Boston *7o'i.w!'.rc'a"
BuUiUn, it is that which prevails in
spine quarters that a well-dressed
person cannot be a good "business
mnn." Slovenly attire does not no-
ccssarily indicate application to business. The rusty black frock, cheap
necktie, nnd neglected linen whicli
somo well-to-do mon assumo is generally a badge of inherent meanness or
an affectation. If anybody of means
works harder and drosses worse
than his clerks it is time that he reformed, devoted- more time to dress
and less to money-making. ,

One of the local ice dealers was
around a few days since, calling
upon his old customers, and one
women informed him vary tartly
that she shouldn't tako ice of him any
longer' "Why notl" was asked.
"Because I can got it off some one
else cheaper," was the rejoinder, "I
don't see how that can be," was the
cool reply of the ice roan, "for I have
supplied you thirteen years and you
haven't paid me a cent yet."—West-

Nova Scotia is now engaged in
buildimg huge schooners for the
plaster and general carrying trade,
and recently the largest sized craft
of that rig has been launched at Av-
ondale. She is a three-masted
schooner, and will spread no less
than 3,600 yards of canvas. Her
longth is 106 feet and registered
tonnage is 600 tons. This vessel
will engage in the plaster trade between the Bay of Fundny ports and
the United States.
"Tommy," said the old gentleman,
sternly, "I understand you were
hanging around the polo grounds
this afternoon, instead of being at
sohool. I won't have you wasting
your time in that way. What on
earth could you see or hear by peep-
through a knot hole in the fence I"
"I could seo you pa," responded
Tommy, "settin' on the gran' stand
and shouting "Oood boy, Danny!"

transfer the naval station from Esquimau to the Inlet, which in time of

of Imperial federation. He leaves tomorrow for Montreal and Quebec,
where ho will be tendered a public reception. He hopes to visit British
Columbia before the autumn.

so as to prohibit fishing before 12 o'clook
Sunday night ? Would yon pjease give
the clause in your valuable paper if suoh
is the case, One Interested.
[The 3rd clause of an order-in-counoil
dated 30th May, 1878, provided as
follows: "Fishing for salmon shall be
discontinued from 8 o'eloek, a.m., on Sat**
urdays to midnight on Sundays," Some
time in 1883, the Fisheries Inspector here
Informs us, this clause was amended by
order of the minister of marine and fisheries to read, "from noon on Saturdays
to 6 o'clook p.m, on Sundays/' and this
has been since and is at present the ruling order. The change was made, we
are told, to avoid as much aa possible
Sunday labor in the canneries; by giving
them time to work up their fish Satur*
day afternoon,—Eo.]

Editor Columbian,—To breathe the
atmosphere of many school houses, lecture rooms, opera houses and theatres, Is
to breathe the atmospere of death, Such
an atmosphere constantly pouring over
the lining membranes of the nasal oavi-
ties, surging about the linings of the
throat and vocal organs, driving down
the bronchial tubes, and deluging the
lungs, what wonder that the muscles
after a time become partially inactive,
the carbonized blood stagnates, the heart
acts slowly, the digestive process is retarded, and the brain is clogged with
vitiated blood, Theresultsarefistlessness,
headache, drowsiness, pale cheeks, lus*>
terless eyes, languid steps, and lastly
catarrh, bronchitis and perhaps pulmonary consumption and death. It is next
to imnosible that a very nervous constitution should long remain healthy in suoh
a poisoned atmosphere. The life and
brain nutriment of normal air is composed
of oxygen and its accompanying electricity, or electrized oxygen. The want of
which is starvation in its most important
flvmse; foi' without them material nutriment from food consumed cannot be ap*
m-onriat-eil, assimilated, and vitalised.

We devote considerable space in
this issue to educational matters.
On another page will lie found the
annual report of the school, hoard,
and also a list of the high school
pupils who have during the hist six
or seven years, under tho careful
and competent instruction of Mr.
Stramberg, passed successful examination's and won lienors here nnd
elseathere. This list is one of which
any educational institute might he
proud, and will be of interest to
many, reoalling as it does faots
which have been forgotten or are
not generally known, and furnishing the best possiblo apology, wero
such a thing necessary, for the cx-
istance of the high school, as an important link between the public
school and a collegiate or university
course, and also as a complement
and sort of finishing room to the
former. The roport which the school
board places beforo the public is satisfactory in many rospeots. The
different branohes of the schools are
stated to bo in a flourishing condition. The attendance hns increased
from i'23 lost year to 499, and the
average attendance from 211 to 248.
The averago attendance, we think,
might be improved upon. It is
gratifying to note that more accommodations and an extra teacher will
be necessary in the future ond have
beon promised by the government,
who, tho trustees say, have met their
several requests in a liberal spirit.
The old school house, the board say,
which has-been occupied by the high
school-and the junior department
of the public school, has been the
cause during last winter of some inconvenience, und, from what we
haveheard, it might be added, a
good deal of discomfort and jeopardy
to health both of teachers and
scholars. We hopo the government
will cafry out their good intentions,
and have the new . school building
completed and ready for occupancy
before another winter sets in. The
report complains of tardiness und
irregularity of scholars, and ihe defacement of school furniture and
shade trees by evil disposed persons,
and calls upon parents, very appropriately, to do their duty by their
children, and to co-operate with the
teachers in bringing aliout the best
results by showing more interest in
the schools and being present at the
examinations. lt is to bo hoped
these recommendations will receive
the attention they demand. In spite
of the little drawbacks and disad
vantages which the board have felt
it thoir duty to notice, it is reassuring to be told "that the Westminster schools ure first on the list in
efficiency and usefulness." In view
of all the circumstances, this statement certainly reflects credit upon
tho entire stall' of teachers, and we
congratulate them upon receiving
such a testimonial, which we have
reason to believe is well deserved.
The extra teacher promised by the
government is, we suppose, intended
as an assistant for the high school.
It has long beeu known that an additional teacher was required for
this school, as the large attendance
and the numerous branches studied
render the services of one teacher,
as heretofore, however competent,
totally inadequate, and the result of
such false economy is thnt injusti
is done both teacher and scholars,
Oar nearest neighbor, the great
republic whose totem is "the eagle,"
has fairly engaged in another of its
periodic constitutional revolutions.
This may seem strange language, to
those who have learned to enjoy
these regular qu'aternial upheavals,
but its incidental eil'ects are almost
as serious as nn ordinary European
revolution. An election campaign
generally starts at least one year
previous to the date of tho polls, and
before the smoke of the battle is fairly cleared away, and the new "king"
and his long list of retainers are
saley installed in olllce, another
campaign is in embryo, with all its
attendant nervous excitement and
uncertainty. Readers of the press
despatches lately must have been
entertained and amused by the daily
recitation of the gushing enthusiasm
and frantic demonstrations displayed
at the various sessions of the great
national Democratic convention held
at St, Louis for the threo days beginning June Sth, What a concourse
of a people, what playing of bands,
what unfurling of banners, what
cheering, whai yelling, and stamping, and simultaneous rising of
electrified thousands to their feet,
what waving of hands, handkerchiefs, fans, parasols, and even dust
ers, as some pet lion of the party
roared or showed his paces. The
ladies too, bless them, turned out in
force and contributed their mite to
help swell the' jubilee. And thin
interest of the (air sex In the great-
national elections may he regarded
u a redeeming feature in American
politics. ' Their influence on the
whole is liable to he on the side of
right. There is, unmistakably,
room for improvement when, as is
unblushingly announced in n telegram under date of St. Louis, Mn.,
June 4, "Sunday wiis not observed
•s a day of rest by the. Democrats
gathered here for the national convention to-morrow. A caucus and
conference went on and probloms of
the platform and vicer-presidenoy ho-
ChildredCry for Plteher'j Castoria
came more tangled tlio more tlioy
wero discussed." A poor beginning
truly. Howovcr, the convention is
over, and Cleveland aud Thurman—
the former for president, the latter
for vice—were unanimously, and enthusiastically, chosen to lead the
-Democratic'host* to—victory, )say
the organs. The great counter demonstration of tho Republican camp
hus yot to transpire. A week from
to-day, at Chicago, is tho timo and
place appointed. It will of courso
last longor than a day, and, from a
Republican standpoint, it is to be
hoped they may be able to secure as
much enthusiasm and unanimity in
their final ohoice as was exhibited
in the St. Louis convention which
adjourned on the 7th. The Democrats would appear to havo tho advantage, iu general harmony and
consolidation, and in knowing their
own mind, as well as in the inevitable prestige which adheres to tliom
from having captured tiro Whito
House ut the last pitched battle, and
having administered the affairs and
dispensed the patronage of tho notion since. Between "availability"
and "desirability" the Republican
party seems to bo in u quondry as to
who shall be their chief ill tho coming struggle. Blaine, Sherman,
Greshani, and others figure ou the
boards, with strongohanoes for Gresh-
liam should Blaine remain steadfast in refusing to nomination. The
Cwrenl, an ably conducted, independent Chicago journal, drags
both parties over the coals at an
amusing rate. It says: "If there
aro any words in the vocabulary of
political partios about exhausted
and worn out, they are, 'we .point
with pride,' aud 'denounce.' Thoy
should be engraved on multiple steel
plates, for their use extends from
national conventions to those of the
counties of the various states." "The.
Democrats," says the Current, "still
'point with pride' to the long lino of
Democratic statesmen and pntriots,
from whoso doctrine they have so
far departed that they appear as another race or nationality." ."The
Republicans cannot ' point with
pride' so for buck as their antagonists can, but thev point just as
heroically und eloquently. Every
recurring campaign they re indulge
in saving tho union and liberating
four million slaves. They have
made great history through former
leaders, and it seeuis hard for them
to venture to advance from out the
shadow of that fame into the liijlit
of present demands and pressing
notional needs." And then in the
"denouncing" business both parties
excel. "The Democratic party is
still 'denouncing' and 'viewing with
alarm.' It has denounced ubout
every question raised by the Republicans and carried to a successful
issue for the last twenty years, und
yet hus accepted them all and 'points
with pride' to many of them." "The
Republican party was woll entrenched in power during this time and
very seldom referred to its opponents
until the house of representatives
become Democmtic. Thon it began
to 'view with alurm'ond 'denounce.'"
The Current soys it "would like to
see these words given an opportunity to rest tiirOUgh one campaign,"
and adds: "The pointing that the
parties should be interested in is
tlie great public finger pointing
Straight at them." it seems to us
that even Canadian politicians
might with advantage take a peep
into this mirror which an Independent American journal has held up
to exhibit tho follies rind insincerities of party polities in the great
republic.

W-iaiMdMrmtM. OBEATLT RELIEVED.
The Winter Beiort Hotel Han agor Makes
.   an Error, but the Guest Fixes It.
There was only one palliating feature
about it. He waa a prosperous theatrical
manager. Many and many a time he had
put the public through the ordeal ot listening to a bad performance simply because they had paid their money, If a
mau pays for anything in advance he's
bound to have It if It kills him. The fellow who has paid his board In advance
has given hostages to the landlady, and
he's bound to eat ihe hoard to the cud of
the month if ib poisons him,
A theatrical manager wbo does not
make money is about os insignificant, uot
to say despicable, a thing as can be imagined, The theatrical manager who has a
plethoric bank account is an object of
great respect and admiration.
However, lt senma Los Angeles is perfectly aware that tlio sun in shining, and
it is making its hay at a lively rate. It
seems hotels thero outdo the world, Thoy
euy you have to pay for registering lu
some places, and Mint it costs so much to
look at a room; but even at the biggest
New York hotels thoy have something
faint and dim of u conscience. But thoy
have none in Los Angeles.
Tho theatrical manager went into tho
best hotol there, of course. Ho had a profound convlnotion that as the impressurio
who provided much ot tht-^ fashionable
entertainment ho was entitled to coririd-
eration abovo his fellows.  Ho got it.
The clerk, having been in a San Francisco hotel, knew him, ami whispered
something to tho proprietor. Tho proprietor looked pleased/smiled and uoddod,
and the manager was shown to good
rooms—that is, ho says, for Los Angeles.
He had a good time. Ho was iu Los
Angeles altogether uboUrt thirty-six hours,
and he went down.cheerily to tho office to
pay his bill. He had iu bis hand all tha
money he had—$30. He "clunk" it ia
that debonair way theatrical managers
have pf clinking money ythen they've got
any.
"How much shall I charge MraF" said
the clerk to the proprietor iu au audlblo
tone.
"He's got money," said tho proprietor,
nnd whispered somethlug to.the clerk.
The clerk made out a bill and handed lt
to tbo theatrical manager wbo bad beeu
one night and day in the hotel. It wai
i-fi.50, with no extras to speak of.
Tli.- manager looked at tho $80 and at
the bill, aud weak and limp ho laid tho
money upon the counter. Tbo clevkgave
him back 13.50.
Tbo manager gazed tenderly upon lt
and said:
Will you do me the honor, str; will you
do me the high honor, air, of taking a
;lassof wine with me?"
"Certainly, with pleasure," nnd they
'eut to the bar.  A small bottle disappeared between them, and the manager
[put 12 on the bar.
"Fifty cents more, please," and the de-
uuded half was put down, aud the manner stilt held the balance in his hand.    -
I have still a dollar left, Will you take
kt cigar?"
Delighted."
That left him half a dollar. -*
Good-by, air. This ts the proudest
moment of mj'llfe. You have honored
me most highly. If you will take this
half dollar-It is alt 1 have left—I shall
Feel more comfortable. Thank you,"—Son

You never hear of ahodcarrlor going
■to a millionaire and complaining that ho
|s tired because he has beeu enrryina
bricks all day.' He Would get no sympathy If he did.   But see how differently a
mau Iu a humble position treats a mau of
losttlon when he complains.-
One of our but and most hard-working
fudges went up to the bar of tho olub tho
|ther day to get a drink.  He felt affable.
"Give me a long drink, John, I am very
lired.  I bave so many things to carry in
py head in court tbat It tires me out."
"I can sympathize with yon, Judge,"
£.Id the kindly barkeeper,  "I know how
i is myself, carrying In my head all the

luscles are immensely developed, and

Onrlons Baperstitliwin nlmiit tlio Evil
.    Ono—Hie Serrlces as a Lndy'H Maid.
To gain his. end there wero no pains
the devil would not take, no situation in
which he would not place himself.
He assumed the likeness of an elegant
young man in order to lend astray a
girl called Maricken, whom bo-not unnaturally Induced to change her namo to
Emmeken auy allusion to the Blessed
Virgin being specially distasteful to htm.
Through her means he gained more than
a thousand souls, but was at Inst robbed
of his chief vlctiniand accomplice through
tho efforts of hor uncle, a holy priest, in
spite of all his exertions, for he feared
that on his return to hell he would be tormented for hiB partial ill success, like a
Carthaginian general.
He clothed himself with the body of a
beautiful princess of Constantinople,
lately dead, in order to marry Baldwin,
Count of Flanders, on account of the unrivaled opportunities for ovil which this
position would givo bim,
Ho acted for thirteen years 09 lady's
maid to a Portugese woman named Lit pa,
but was rpbbud of bis prey after all; for
since, amid nil her wickedness, she had
not ceased to reverence St. Francis and
his disciple St. Anthony, they brought
her the habit of their order ou her deathbed, nnd so Saved her from tho clutches of
the fiend.
Yot, iu spite of all tbls seal and versatility, he cannot bo acquitted ot tlio gravo
fault of sometimes wasting his time. It
could, for Instance, serve no great purpose
for the devils to leap about the refectory
tabk3 of St. Dominie's convent. And
from tho tlmo which he devoted to teaching in tbe Black School he did not reap an
unmixed benefit; for, though "the devil
took tlio hindmost," this was sometimes

TIIE FISHERMAN'S DREAM.
An Experience with Which the Reader
Will Hare Romly Sympathy.
I wandered to tho country, Tom; I sat
beside tho brook; I tried to catch tho
nimble trout with lino and baited hook.
Tho banks were ju jt as muddy and tho
currents just as slow aa in the days I used
to fish somo twenty years ago.
No peoplo now were with me, Tom; I
squatted then alone and tried to yank out
massive fish, whero there, alas! wore
none.
Mosquitoes bit me just as hard and
chanted just as low as when they used to
bore their wells, some twenty years ago.
And while I tried to swipe them once,
and break their dreary song, the bank
rolled down iuto tho creek aud carried
me along.
The water wa3 as moist, my friend, tbe
mud as deep below as when I rolled into
tbe creek somo twenty years ago.
The line got wound about my limbs,
tbe hookstuck in my eye, the pole twirled
round tho same old way and hit me on
the fly.
I reeled off curses quaintly then, and
naught could stop their flow—I cursed aa
loudly and as long as twenty years ago.
And whon I started through the woods
to reach my humble home my eyes were
filled with last year's leaves, my ears
were full of foam.        ****»
A snake sat up and bit me, Tom, just as
that snake, you know, that left its trade
mark on my leg some twenty years ago.
And then I to the market went, as yon,
of course, will guess, and having captured ne'er a fish, I had to buy a mess.
Aud then those withered scrubs I
bought, I to my wife did show, and told
tho same old fairy tale of twenty years
ago,—*Lincoln Journal.

\^ FOR THE BABY.
Tho Amusing Mistake of a -Professional
Beggar,
Ono family, in a prosperous town, evidently had no intention of living by Its
own exertions. The children wero sent
from house to bouse to ask for articles,
aud tho preamble of their petition usually
was tho statement that the bnby was siok.
Sometimes the baby was sick, and
needed au extra blanket; again his recovery depended on naw milk or currant
jelly.
Ono day, however, tho children wbo
thus supplied the baby's wants were going
home from school, when they were taken
by a longing for ono of the luxuries of
lifo. With them the desire was to bog;
therefore they culled boldly at tho near*
est house, ono which bad often contributed to their necessities,
■■"Well, Hattie, what is it to-day ?" asked
tbo maid-servant as she opened the door.
"Please, the baby—"
"Oh, yes, I know tho baby's sick by tbls
time, but what does he need f"
"Flense, the baby's sick and wants a

* Bismarck's Opinion of Linguists*
Princo Blemarok maintained inaconrer-
sation that tho acquirement of languages
does not Imply talent. Ho thought the
ear rather than the mind was cultivated
by a linguist.
A consul appointed to Berlin pestered
bis minister to present bim to Bismarck.
At length an Interview was granted, and,
throwing etiquette aside, tho consul
brought his son with him. Bismarck
looked annoyed, but the consul boldly
presented his heir, with the remark:
"A most remarkable young man, Four
Highness—he speaks several languages."
"'Wljat a fine waiter tho young fellow
wonld make," said Bismarck, coldly, to
the minister at his side.

Among unrepealed acts of Parliament
in England stand the following gems:
Persous tending to use witchcraft, by a
law enacted under George II., are punishable by Imprisonment. Those practising
palmistry are to bo treated ns vagabonds
aud punished accordingly. By a law
enacted In the time of Charles I. meetings
of peoplo outside their own parishes, on
Bunday, for any sports or pastimes whatever, are prohibited under a flue of three
shillings nnd threo hours In tbe public
stocks. Afty person disbelieving the'doe-
trlnes of the Established Church, ahd refusing to have his children baptised, or
to partaka of tho commuuton, may, by
a law of Queen Elizabeth, be committed to
prison. .    t

Scrofula

keeping the dyking scheme moving.
Mr. Hill, tho engineer, has surveyed
ono lino for tho dyke, nnd they aro
going to have another flutvoyed from
Bluckie's spit to Oliver's slough. This
dyke will bo two miles long and will
dyke in 24,000 acres of land. Thero
is probably no place on tho coast whero
bo much gi.'od laud can be dyked with
so short a dyke, or ut bo little cost.
This dyko will only requiro ono
lock, which will make tho threo streams
accoasablo to navigation. The flood
gates can bo mado so as to keep tho
water at any desired lovol in the rivers,
whioh will greatly improve tho navigation, especially after tho canal is opened to the Fraser river.
A Hnrrry Ordered,
Some days ago a telegram was sent
to Ottawa signed by Mr. Chisholm,
M. P., Major Dickinson, Mr. John
Hendry, president of tho boiud of
trade, and Mr. D. 8. Curlis, sociotary
of tho board of trade, representing the
nuctfBEity of an immediate Huvvoy ot
the Frasor river oliRnnol, and tho injustice doiiQ tho rivor by Capt Lewis'
roport. I-aat iml'Ul a reply waa ro-
coivod from Mr. Smith, deputy minister of marine, stating ho had directed
Capt. Lewis to take Mninitin immediately iu conjunction with a committee
from tha himtd of trade. The prompt
action taken by riie government in
thii mattor Li most s&tiafactoty to
every citizon of Westminster. The
survey of tlu. channel will bo made as
soon as tho necessary arrangements
nro completed.

Annual School Itcyort.
Tlio board of trustees f«*r the
Now Wostminster public and high
schools beg most respectfully to report:
That the different branches of the
schools aro in a flourishing condition;
that the number of scL-jlars that have
been in attendance during the past
year has been 499, and the average attendance has been 2-18, showing a
marked difference since tho lust annual
meeting, especially in tho lower ruoms;
and it hns been again a necessity to ask
for moro accommodation and another
extra teacher. The govornment havo
promised to oroct another building
similar to thn one now occupied by tho
public school arid joining tlio present
btiilding, and so duplicating what we
now have, this will, wlioti complete,
givo ample accommodation for some
timo lo como. Thoy havo also gtVOti

school building during the past winter.
vvlHclr, we trus't, will now oo at end.
Tho school grounds have boon kept In
toionimy fair order, but a great deal of
annoyance has been caused tho board
by evil-disposed persons destroying tho
school property by broiling tho windows and shade trios nud defacing
doors. Thore has also beon a ''ood
deal of dissatisfuctioti experienced by
the teachers iu tho tardiness and irregularity of pupils goiug to school,
aud tho parents and guardians of tho
scholars aro earnestly roijuoatcd by tho
board to give this matter thoir sorious
consideration us it is all important that
if -a child is sent to;school at all, it
should bo in ita place at tho timo appointed, otherwise tho teachers cannot
be expected to secure the grand result
that would bo easily-, obtained by all
being in their placo at tho proper time.
Paronta appear to forget altogether
that the education of tho child depends
as much upon tho parent's backing up
the efforts of the teachers, as upon tho
work of the teachers themselves. The
board havo done their utmost to get
tho beat teaching material to bo found,
and thoy are confident that most of the
teachers sro very faithful in their
work, and the result now rosts with
tho parents themselves. Tho board
are of opinion that the New Westminster schools are first ou the list in efficiency and usefulness; but they, aro
not perfect yet, and will not bo until
tho. parents nnd guardians do their
part—"Parents what are you going to
do about it?"
The appropriation for incidental expenses has been expended in the usual
way, and the government have met the
board in this particular in a very liberal spirit.
In conclusion the board would earnestly request that as many of tho parents as possiblo would mako a point of
boing present at the examinations
shortly to bo held, ss their presence
on such occasions gives encouragement
fo.ljoth teachers and pupils and evinces
an interest in tho sohool and thu cause
of freo education.
Moved by Rev. Robt. Jamieson, aud
seconded by Mr. Duncan, That tho report of tho trustees bo received and
adopted and thut a voto of thanks be
given to tho trustees in - acknovlcdg-
mont of their services during tho past
year.   Carried.
It was suggest od that the government agent be requested to post the
public as to the stops thoy must take
to make themselves eligible to vote at
the school election of trustoos. Since,
as the matter now stands, very fow
wore eligible t-o vote on this important
business.
Mr, Wm. Johnston acted as chairman and T. J. Trapp as secretary.
