COURT OF REVISION.
The adjo.t?ned meeting of the
Court of Revision was held on Saturday fo* with the full board
present.
Minutis of previous meeting were
adopted as read.
On motion it was decided to re*
duce the assessment oa H. Peden's,':

bothi
time, but the government plodded
on and by answering all questions
asked over and over again, and
not giving their opponents any
chance to create a grieviance, estimates were put through and a substantial supply bill was sent to the
Senate, aud assented to by His Excellency.
Sut ply Bill Passed.
In the first place, and probably
to the people generally, the most
important act of tbe Government
was to pass a supply bill of over
$30 000.000 for the public service.
This bill also includes one-eighth
of the estimates not previously voted. Tbeelfect is that civil servants
throughout the Dominion can now
get paid tbeir salaries, which
have been considerably in arrears in
consequei.ee ol Conservative obstruction. The additional one-
eigbth will provide money in addition to what has been voted in the
House. That is tbat one-eighth of
the remaining estimates are now
available, although the items have
not been passed by the House, so
that tbe Government have provided
for delay arising out of possible obstruction, to tbe extent ot this one-
eighth, in addition to everything
already voted.
The fact that the situation bas at
last been relieved must be particu
larly welccme to those who have
nothing but their earnings to rely
upon. If any embarrassment has
been caused, there is only one Trot
place in which the blame can be at f
tached, and that is upon the shoulders of the Opposition. Ih their
attempts to retard tbe passage of a
bill to amend the Elections Act, the
Opposition have not hesitated to re
fuse supply altogether for a time,
and alterwards to grant it grudgingly, and after long aud repeated
arguments. The chief sufferers are
the meu who work for wages, and
they will remember this incident,
and some day in the immediate
future thev will know how to resent it.
Placed Under Commission.
The passage of a bill placing
telegraph and telephone companies
under the control of the Railway
Commission, will be received with
universal satisfaction. The Conservatives are in favor of govern-
I ment owned utilities of this char-
! acter, which could only be accom-
1 plished by. aa immense outlay of
' money, and consequent large in

tbe exact locality of this sense In injects is uncertain, we know that the

It would be Interesting to know
whether each special taste excites a

nerves. These tasto Unlhs were discovered In 18117. Each one consists of
two kinds of cells, ono set formlug an

ConeernliiK the Letter "V."
A writer ln Science denies thut tbe
letter "y" Is a lineal descendant from
tlie Hornsn "Y," which tu the lime of
Cicero was borrowed from the Greek
alphabet to represeut upsilon In the
translation of Ci recti names. Tlie latter Is only used, he says, as a vowel to
transliterate upsilon In loan words cither direct from the (ireok or indirect
ly through Latin or French. In a great
majority of cases the English "y" Is a
semiconsonnnt corresponding ia value
with the continental "j." Along with
tbo other Roman letters, "y" was
adopted by tbe Anglo-Saxons from the
Latin alphabet, witb a value approximating to tbat of I." In fact, be
claims tbat tbere Is uot a lineal de
seendant of tbe Auglo-Saxon "y" now
In existence. The letter "y" lu modern
English words Is, curiously enough, he
claims, not a "y" at all. but a lineal de
nceiidaut of the Anglo-Saxon "g."
whicli was the Human "U" evolved bv
Ibe Romans out of an earlier "C."

another branch or stem.
All trees are alike In this respect, nnd
If all tbe boughs, branches, stems, buds

Supply Bill Passed.
In the first place, and probably
to the people generally, the most
important act of tbe Government
was to pass a supply bill of over
$30,000,000 for the public service.
This bill also includes one-eighth
of the estimates not previously voted. The effect is that civil servants
throughout the Dominion can now
get paid their salaries, which
have been considerably in arrears in
consequence ol Conservative obstruction. The additional one-
eighth will provide money in addition to what has been voted in the
House. That is that one-eighth of
the remaining estimates are now
available, although the items have
not been passed by the House, so
that the Government have provided
for delay arising out of possible obstruction, to tbe extent of this one-
eighth, in addition to everything
already voted.
The fact that the situation has at
last been relieved must be particu
larly welcome to those who have
nothing but their earnings to rely
upon. If any embarrassment has
been caused, there is only one Trot
place in which the blame can be attached, and that is upon the shoulders of the Opposition. Ih their
attempts to retard the passage of a
bill to amend the Elections Act, the
Opposition have not hesitated to re
fuse supply altogether for a time,
and alterwards to grant it grudgingly, and after long and repeated
arguments. The chief sufferers are
the meu who work for wages, and
they will remember this incident,
aud some day in the immediate
future thev will know how to resent it.

Meat was better supplied than at
the last market. Of beef there was
a good orferine, and a ready sale
for prime Mock. Poorer qualities
only sold at a greatly reduced price.
Mutton and lamb was better supplied than usually, and all was sold.
A remark applies 'o lhe veal on
this occasion as before, that some
offered woul . not be called prime,
and it would pay the farmer to feed
a while longer, when he would not
have to take less than market price
for prime veal. The demand for
pork kept pace with the supply.
Eggs continued at 30c a dozeu
wholesale, as at lhe previous market. The demand remains firm.
Butter still rules at 30c. Poultry,
especially ducks, reached the market in large quantities. Of fowls
there was a fair supply, and the demand was good ior young birds.
The bulk of the chickens were too
small for table use to advantage.
The call for well grown ducks was
a feature of the market.
Potatoes rose on a short market.
The new ones not coming in fast
have been able to do much better; made prices advance. Growers are

The proboscis ..f liu? 8y uud the
tongues of bees and anlaar.' furnlsbpd
with uumciwis delicate lutir_ �����>! lu minute pits. These are perhaps connected
with the organ of taste; but. though
the exact locality of this sense In injects is uncertain, we know that the
groups of ceils iu the tongues of animals called taste bulbs form lu part
the ends of the organ of taste. These
vary in number, Increasing in the higher animals. They are very close and
exceedingly numerous in man, while
ihe tongue Oi' eveu the cow has some
35,000 taste bulbs.
It would bo interesting to know
whether each special taste excites a
special group of nerves and that only,
thus corresponding to the auditory
nerves. These tasto bulbs were discovered in 1807. Bach one consists of
two kinds of cells, one set forming an
outer protective covering, through an
opening in which project from live to
ten of tho true tasto cells. Though important, they are not apparently an essential part of the organ, lor birds and
reptiles havo none, but neither have
they a keen sense of taste, except perhaps the parrot.
Concerning Ilie Letter "V.M
A writer In Science denies that tlie
letter "y" ls a lineal descendant from
the Roman "Y," which lu tlie time of
Cicero was borrowed from thc Greek
alphabet to represent upsilon in the
translation of Greek names. The latter ia only used, he says, as n vowel to
transliterate upsilon in loan words either direct from tlie Greek or Indirect
ly through Latin or French. In a greal
majority of cases the Knglish "y" Is a
scm!consonant corresponding in value
with the continental "j." Along with
the other Roman letters, "y" was
adopted by the Anglo-Saxons from the
Latin alphabet, with a value approximating to that of *i." In fact, he
claims that tliere is uot a lineal do
scendnnt of the Anglo-Saxon "y" now
In existence. The letter "y" lu modern
Kngllsh words Is, curiously enough, he
claims, not a "y" at all. but a lineal de
scendnnt of tlie Anglo-Saxon "g,"'
which wus the Roman "ti" evolved b.i
Iho Romans out of an earlier "C."

Let us observe a law common to all
trees. First, neither the stems nor
bojighs of the maple, elm at oak laper
���''.(������ut at the point where they fork.
VVIeiiever a stem semis forth a brancn
:;.���''. a branch sends off a small', r bough,
but! or bteui, they remain tlie same In
diameter, nud the original stem wlll
Increase rather than' diminish until ils
next branch starts. No b ugh, branch
or stem ever narrows near ils extrcm
iiy except where it parts with a por-
sion of Its substance by sending otf
another branch or stem.
All trees are alike In this respect, and
Kail the boughs, branches, stems, buds
and blossoms were combined and united without loss cf space they would
form a round log the same l.i sh'.c and
diameter us the trunk irom which they
spring. This Is one of mil are's Imperii-

not truthful, she was plausible.
Coming In from her walk oue morning, she Informed hor mother that sbt

No amount of persuasion or reasoning wavered her statement one hair's
breadth, so ut night, when she slipped
down beside her knee, her mother said,
"Ask God to forgive you for that fib,

Tilt'   Poor   Doff.
A Portsluu clothes dealer kicked a
dog out of his shop. Tho dog shot out
With some rapidity and knocked over
a woman with a jug of milk. 'Ibe
>vo;nan broke the jug nud upset nu
elderly gentleman, aud the jug cut
both of theiu. At that moment a cyclist arrived and was thrown off bis
machine by tlie prostrate ligures, and
��� jmultar.eously a cart came up and
smashed the bicycle. The magistrate
blandly advised tbe entire squad to
proceed against tho dog. and they are
now looking for It.���London Glebe.

T::e question is mooted wbetbei tv
vulture l:v.i-.v. of its i/uirry by sight oi
smell liu>. does it communicate thf
tews of a feast to its fellows'/ A tiger
lad been killed.
Colonel Rninsny ordered the carcans
of the skinned tiger to be dragged out
from under the thick mango trees into
the open. Taking out his watch, he
lsked us to make a guess as to how
long the vultures would take to clean
lhe flesh off tho bones. Some oue said
half so hour. As there was not a vulture in sight, tliis seemed even betting,
but Colonel Ramsay gave them ton
__in.l1es, which proved to be correct
There was oue vulture at first seen
soaring round ap'l round very high up
In thc cloudless sky, Uo closed bis
wings and dropped on to the carcass
with a swoop. In two minutes the sky
was full of vultures, all concentrating
from every side ou tho spot, and arriving with all the Impetus their drop
from a great height gave them as fast
as lt takes to tell the story. Then
there commenced a frightful scene of
literal carnage, every one tearing with
sharp, hooked bill at the entrails first,
then at thc flesh, all lighting for room
to get a piece and tumbling over ono
another with frantic haste.���"The Forests of Upper India and Their Inhabitants," by T. W. Webber.

Many animals yield to tho seduction
of rum drinking, especially elephants,

On awakening they stagger for a few
moments and soon recover, but it ls
