Talbot one of the promoters of the trans-Canada railway  spoke before the Board of Trade at  Vancouver last week. He said the  British Columbia Government  premised the road 2,000 ae-ps of  land a mile for 400 miles in British  Columbia, provided the company  got the grant they were asking for  from the Dominion Government.  The Board will give moral support  to the projected road by resolutions  to the Dominion and Provincial  Governments.  Agent for Wire Fencing.  Gates made to order.  r Having  taken the  Agency for the  WHAT DID S&E MEAN ?  They were at supper. Between  the courses the young man with  the voracious appetite discussed eloquently on things in general.  "Do you know, Miss Dash," he  remarked, "I think there is a very  intimate relation between our food  and our character. I believe, don't  you know, that we grow like what  we are most fond of."  The fair girl smiled sweetly.  "How interesting," she murmured.. "May I pass you the ham,  Mr. Jones ? I am sure you will  like it."  Aad the young man relapsed into deep thought.  IN HIS YOUTH.  FISHERMEN MEET'.  The.Amalgamated Lodge,of Fishermen, met'-; at Westminster last  Saturday. After the meeting Secretary Durham stated that as tl.t  lodge is to work this season with  Japanese fishermen, it would not  be fair to make pupiic any transactions. However it is known that  the price of fish for the coming  season was discussed and almost !|  eyery fisherman questioned before  the meeting stated that he would  -vote against a sliding scale, such  a* prevailed last season. The trap  question is also understood to have  received attention.  The Fisherman's Grand Lodge  has been abolished and an amalgamated lodge formed with headquarters at Westminster.  There is a story of a man of  seventy who, when he was asked  if his father lived to be an old man,  replied that his father was upstairs  putting his grandfather to bed.  There is another setting of this old  story—old 'enough to be new  which is told by the New York  Times as coming from a southern  senator, who was explaining how  healthy his part of the state is : A  mountaineer, ninety-two years old,  and his wife of ninety were returning from the funeral of their eldest  child, who had died at the age of  seventy-one. As they discussed  their loss in deep grief, the wife  ciaid: 'J.I always told'you, Jor>.n, that  we should never raise that child."  TEA GO.  Heretofore carried on by J. J.

John Haskins, a well-to-do  farmer of Secaucus, N. J., is seeking separation from his wife Martha  because she is a "new woman."  Haskins says she spends nearly all'  her time "attending club meetings  and reading trashy literature on  the enfranchisement   of   her   sex.  He married her 18 months ago as  a helpmate he say's, but she has  proved an encumberance too expensive for a farmer, refusing to milk  cows feed chickens, make butter or  perform ' 'any of the duties naturally expected from one of her station."  Haskins says that his wife characterizes work .about a farm as "unwomanly" find that he has steadly  lost money since their marriage.  PROCLAMATION.  HENRI  G.   JOLY de  IX)TBINIBRE.  CANADA.

Mrs. Mary Coulter, the lone woman legislator has introduced a  bill in the Utah legislature to place  \a. maximum on the campaign expenses of would-be United States  senators and congressmen. The measure makes ytab elections of the  future bargains-counter affairs. The  bill provides that no candidate  shall buy voters' beer, whiskey or  any kind of intoxicating drinks,  cigars or tobacco in any form,, iend  them money or promise them political jobs. Every candidate must  file sworn statements showing in  details all he spent. The expressed  intention of the measure is to mark  down Utah senatorial jobs.

Y., board of  health has held a meeting and discussed the ordinance which commissioner Henry Meigs introduced  a- year ago to compel women to  Wear short skirts.- The proposed  ordinance has been shelved because  Mr Meigs has been unable to get a  majority of the seven members to1  support it.

The short  skirt ordinance does not stipulate  how short the skirts must be, but  says that they must not touch the  ground.
