'\Vith v, ivch to pay their teachers,
until next fall. This, and the fact
that a public meeting is necessary
to ratify the salaries, is liable to
be the means of driving the best
teachers out of 'the profession, the
province generally, 'being the loser.
"All this," said the speaker, "has
beeu brought about iu order to relieve the Provincial Treasury to the
extent ef abe.ut $50,000-3 year."
According to the estimates tlie am-
euuts raised in 1904 \va. $ ;.u,ooo:
in 1905 .'444,000, and in 1906 it is
$421,000. The 1906 estimate
covers six months under the old
Act and six months under the new.
Hence the difference���-#22,000���is
one half the amount saved, per annum under th. new Act. "Now,
gentletn��n." said John, "if ,be
government had",increased the provincial taxes one nail on -he dollar-
sufficient funds would have been
raised, and that without any extra
expense, the government having all
the needed machinery." Had this
been done, the existing school system would not have been upset.

Considerable complaint having
been made regarding the flushing
.of thc ditches, instructions have
been Issued to have the ditches
{Lashed at least twice a week, during
(the prevalence ot diphtheria.
There is little doubt as to the
wisdom of this order. Probably
the present cases of diphtheria and
typhoid have had their origin in
(he neglected condition of the said
ditches. We believe a regular system of flashing will tend to reduce
tthe existing evil.
If we are wrong ia our supposition, Why is it that there i* less
sickness here in a rainy season than
ia a drv trosty one?
The Merry Christmas has come
Mil g-W-i **nd the New Year is
dawning upon us.
There are those among us who
have had their hearts sorely pierced during the past year, and who
will hardly be likely to call the past
���Happy Tea'', and there are those
among us who, no doubt, will be
Hftverely tested during the coming
year, and to all such we should
Stretch forth the hand of friendship
and love.
during the past year we have en-
deavwed to do our duty to all, and
imi intend, by the grace of God, to
continue to do so, and with the
generous support of our patrons
we shall, no doubt, succeed.
We wish you all a very Happy
and Prosperous New Year.
It would not occur to many people that a voyage in oae of the
swan boats which sails thc little
pond iu the public gaiden of New
England city could be attended
with horrors; but that idea was
firmly fixed in the mind ot a small
maiden oj seven years.
"Would you like a ride in one of
the swan-boats, Marjorie?" asked
the little maid's aunt, as they
crossed tbe bridge over the pond
one day.
"No indeed!" said Marjory, with
sudden shrinking. "I couldn't
bear to see them throw the babies

Marjorie's standpoint, was far from

smile, he added:  "Babies thrown

"Some weeks ago during these

and myself contracted severe colds
which speedily develvoped into the
worst kind pf la grippe with all its
miserable symptoms," says Mr. J. S.-
Bgleston of Maple Landing, Iowa.
"Knees and joints aching, muscles
sore, head stopped up, eyes and nose
running, with alternate spells of
chills and fever. We began using
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, aiding tbe same with a dose of Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets, and by its liberal use soon
completely, ktiocked out the grip."
These Tablets promote a healthy

when the system is congested by a

career is thus -pictured:
-In tbe weeks during wbicb he trailed

Men and 'horses -tllkn, he conrlnfled,
were against him. If be wmiW bold

and boots. Especially be carried wltb
him always a black, furious liutred of
man In general.
So be weut about with ears laid back,
the white.-of his eyes showing and a
bite ar a kick ready in any emergency.
Day by day the htte in him deepened
until It bet-time the master passion. A
quick footfall behind bim was enough
to send bis beeis Hying as though tbey
had been-released by a bair trigger. He
kicked first and Investigated afterward.
The mere sight-of <nina_t within reaching distance roused all his ferocity.
Toward his awn %ind Bine Biases
bore himself defiantly. Double harness
was something he loathed. Oue was
not free to work his will on tbe despised driver if hampered by a pole
nud mate. In such cases be nipped

by the roadside. In tbe natural course
of events he was much puni.hed.
Up and across the southern peninsula of Michigan he drifted couton-
tiously, growing moro vk-kius with

Editor Dk_,ta Times:
Sir: I clipped the following from
the Daily Columbian of the 23rd
"Mr. Walter James, of Ladner,
reports having recently met witb an
accident there, boinr run over by an
empty wagon and sustaining severe
injury to his back, was in town today. He wishes it stated for the
information ofthe p.ople of Ladner
that when he applied for papers of
admission to the Hospital the Reeve
would not give them; while to complete his hard luck a doctor in
town told him that it is lumbrgo
that is the matter with his back."
The above is a pure fabrication.
Walter James came to me at Westminster and told me tbat he had
consulted Dr. Woodley, of Ladner,
and that he told him to come to me
to be admitted to the Royal Columbian Hospital. I asked him for
Dr. Woodley's order, to which he
answered, "He gave it to me veib-
ally." On seeing Dr. Woodley, I
asked him why he had rot given
Tames' written reqi est to me, the
Doctor answered that he had not
been consulted in any way, and only
spoke to tbe man ouce and that
was ou overtaking him on the road
one day when he offered James a
ride whicli was not accepted.
The day after James came to me
and told me that Dr. Walker had
examiued him and found two or
three ribs broken. The above article says "lumbago."
The public can judge from the
above and form their own conclusions.
