of .pains ia her cheit and had a bad
cough. I gave her Chamberlain's

everyone was highly pleased that
they had taken the trouble to turn

The pioneer .dinner alt Victoria

municipal political meeting. W.
H. Ladner, who was present as
usual, was coupled with H. D.
Helmcken in connection with "The

able consternation among the young
men, who felt slighted. * Of course
the Squire blushed * to 1 the roots of
his hair, or where it used to he.

a short*-while this week, and is improving nicely.

SATURDAY,   DECEMBER   17, **9��4*
Dissatisfaction is pretty generally
.expressed with regard to the pre*-
,ent Municipal representatives. The
.elections are drawing near, and we
wish to enter another plea lor the
-abolition of the Ward systetr,
-.which is rotten to the cortj. A
-volunteer fro�� each ward would
-soon be able to secure the necessary
.names to accomplish this desirable
���aim. We shall get patriotic representatives with the abolition of the
Ward system. Do you want to ad-
.yance or retire ?
It would be a good thing it some
"sportsmen" (excuse us if we've
made a mistake) were caught and
heavily fined for carrying, in addi-
-tion to their gun, wire clippers to
.cut wire fences to let themselves
and dogs through. One need not
travel many miles trom Ladner to
see specimens ot their handiwork.
Jf i.t is absolutely necessary to cut
���the fence they might tell the farmer
where to look lor the break so that
he can fix it up. Be a gentleman once in a while.
Simllarltr ��f A��lm��I�� tail Mem.
It  lias   been  observed   that  if  tin
1 turned dot; is taken back to tbe wild
I  jtate be loses his roiee.  These "sound-
! lug voices" are produced in the animal
j tbront in a way similar to' buniau language, but are uot ''voices" proper uor
-languages" proper, aud yet they ure
fuil of psychological expression and r*��-
venl the animal's psychic states.  If we
tickle a chimpanzee in tbe armpit, the
touch produces a grin on tbe face slmi-
iar to that of a man under like circumstances.   He also  emits  luughterllke
sounds. The same ls the case with the
ouraug outaug.   The gorilla knits the
i>row when angry, Just like men.
We often observe in apes a complete
change in the facial muscles when
something- is going to happen, be lt
agreeable or disagreeable. It ts so also
with the child. In apes there is evidently the same connection between
tbe facial muscles and vocal muscles as
in man.
Character Bulldlmflr.
Character ls the wool of honor from
which a coat of mall can be woven that
tbe swiftest arrow of shame or the
keenest knife of disrepute cannot
pierce. Every thought that enters eur
mind, every act we do and every word
we utter adds a link to tbe golden
chain of character. The strength of a
steam engine <Sin be estimated to within an ounce of Its limit, but it ls Impossible to estimate tbe force of a noble character. The hardest hearts are
softened and the most repulsive dispositions become fascinating. Our failures and our successes help to form a
reputation that may be destroyed by
an external force, but the destruction
of a character can only be effected by
some internal force.���Our Boya* Magazine.
Her ReiMa,
Dr. Porter had responded to a note
left at his door by a farmer asking
him to go as soon as possible to see bis
little boy, who bad "a very bad cold."
The doctor took one look at the child
and turned to the mother.
"Don't you know your boy is coming
down with measles?" he asked severely.
"Yes, doctor, I knew he waa." said
tbe woman.
"Then what ln the world did you
mean by writing me be had 'a very bad
cold?' " asked tbe doctor.
Tbe woman hesitated for a moment;
then, looking at her husband, she said.
with sullen frankness, "Neither him
nor me knew how to spell measles."
CHURCH UNION.
One of the significant events of
tthe present is the meeting of representatives* from the Methodist,
JPresbyterian and Congregational
���Ghurcfces pf Canada, in Toronto,
shortly, to discuss the question of
Jthe union of thesg great religious
���bodies throughout the Dominion.
It is too early to speak, as yet, of
.what may be the definite outcome
pf this meeting but whatever the
result may be it cannot but be for
good, and the fact that such a meeting of representatives has been called for reveals the broad and catholic spirit of the age. There are
Strong reasons for the union suggested and but few which can be
given against such. We need not
go far from our own doors to see
the immense conservation of energy
that would ensue the saving both
in men and in money, the impetus
that would come to the church's
missionary and educational zeal,
and the removal of the unfortunate
overcrowding in many of our
.sparsely settled districts. Then,
too, what an object lesson it would
pe to the heathen nations, what a
Strang body could be marshalled
against the moral evils, and what
an influence fqr purity ijj political
circles. We trust federal uijion of
.these bodie? may be consummated
but if .such should not come at once
- we hope, that these churches may
.pome closer than ever iu aU their
efforts to better the bpdy politic and
build njore firmly the foundations of
pur national life;.

The Best Remedy tor Croup.
(From Atchison, Kan., Daily Globe.)
This is the season when the woman
who knows the best remedies for
croup is in demand in every neighborhood. One of the most terrible
things in the world is to be awakened
in the middle of the night by a whoop
from one ef the children. The croup
remedies are almost as sure to be lost?
in case of croup, as a revolver is sure
lo be lost in case of burglars. There
used to be an old-fashioned remedy
for croup, known as hive syrup, but
seme modern mothers say that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better,
and does not cost so much. It causes
the patient to "throw up the phlegm"
quicker, and gives relief in a shorter
time. Give this remedy as soon as
the croupy cough appears and it will
prevent the attack. It never fails
and is pleasant and safe to talk. For

A   Powerful  Kiver.
"Should one* be aslted ut random to
uatue the most powerful rivor iu New
Ei-j-knid���that io. tlie river yielding tha
most water power aud dolus the most
w ark���lie would be likely to name the
\Jerriiuuc." said M. S. Edgar of Port-
laud, Me. "He would have tu mind
the great manufacturing: city of Lowell, and tlie answer would be a natural
one. It ls surprising, therefore, to ba
told by the United States geological
survey that the most powerful riVer Id
New England is the Androscoggin.
Yet the surprise abates when the facts
are recounted. There are nine or ten
developed water powers along the river, aud it appears that they furnish total power equal to 73,000 horses. Tb��
fatls at Brunswick yield 7,700 horsepower; at Lisbon Kails, 1.92!5; at Lewis-
ton, 12,000; at Livermore Falls, .3,000;
at Otis Falls, 8,000; at Jay's, 3,700; at
Peterson's Kips, 6,000. At Ituniford
Falls there Is a potential of 30,000
horsepower when the resources at that
place are fully developed, and that ls
altogether the greatest water power iu
New England."

Cheese ls oue of the most concentrated forms of nitrogenous food and as a
food well adapted to the laboring mau
or those working In the open air. Wheu
properly cooked, cheese ls probably
more easily assimilated by the ordinary
stomach than eaten raw, and hard, uncooked cheese should be served grated.
In combination wltb certain food materials cheese Is valuable, but wben used
ln this way should form the staple dish
of the meal. Macaroni aud cheese, rice
cooked ln stock and then baked with
cheese or cooked with lt, as in the form
of risotto, should be used iu the place
of meat An ordinary diuuer menu of
meat, potato, macaroni and cheese is
not properly arranged. Macaroni and
cheese should be used for a luncheon
dish, and a green vegetable should be
served with meat and potato.

When reduced with water and sweet-
aned it is pleasant to take.
You, or some one of your family, are
suro to need this remedy sooner or latei
and when that time comes you will need
lt badly; you will need it quickly. Why
not buy it now aud be prepared for such
an emergency?   Price, 85 cents.
