I OINTMENT 1
Has established itself ae a houeebold necessity and
has a reoord of Cures unparelleled in tbe history of
Medicine, It cures old and new Sores, Ulcers,
Ecezema, Salt Rheum, Itching Piles, ChafingB,
Pimples, Blackheads and all Skin Diseases. This
Ointment has been in use almost half a Century.
Testimonials from thousands who have been
oured of Skin Diseases of long standing testify
to its Curative qualities.
Amid a general ory of inoompe
tency in all the departments of the
oity, clamor is rising heavier and
heavier as the days pass on that
the department ohieflv to blame is
tbat of the water. This is the department whioh supplies any revenue to the oity whioh is to be had
outside of the usual taxes, licenoes
and sanitary rates. Nearly half of
Rossland's indebtedness haB been
ioourred through this department,
and its eoonomio administration is
a matter which is of vital concern
to every thinking oitizen who proposes to extend the principle of
munioipal ownership. It is stated
that the acoounts have been aoou-
mulating from year to year, remaining unpaid upon the books,
and going forward as oity assets,
whereas they are unoolleotable.
Tbat favoritism has been shown in
many oases; that too high a water
iB charged; that people are unequally burdened; that the department
itself is too highly paid, and th*t
generally things are mismanaged in every'poBsible manner.
To a large extent these things
are true, but the fault does not lie
with the water department itself,
as with tbe irresponsible members
of the oity oounoil who interfere
with it.
During the latter administration
of the oity the superintendent of
the water department was instructed by public resolution to col-
leot all aocounts owing to the oity.
A list was drawn up and submitted, qaUe illegally, to an irrespDo-
sible committee, oalled tha Fire,
Water and Light, whioh has only
Legislative funotiohs, but Whioh
instructed its    officers to    negleot

certain
aocounts for "charity" or for
some other reason best known
to themselves. It is evident that
with eaoh successive oounoil each
member may have his own favori
tes and irresponsibly write off any
amount or amounts to the oity's
oredit. How oan a department be
run upon suoh lines? The mayor
may instruot an engineer to lay or
not to lay oertain pipea, thinking
himself qualified, though quite
illegally, to issue an exeoutive
order. The only one remedy possible is that adopted in other parte
I of Canada, whioh is to take the
water department out of the hands
of the city oounoil and plaoe it in
the bands of a commission, two of
the members of whioh shall be annually eleoted by the people and
the third to be, ex officio, the
mayor.
To understand the truth or falsity of other oharges it were well to
look into the system of administra
jerior point of view. The depart
meat just now has but one perma
naat offioial, he who is usually cal
led the oity engiueer, although his
salary from the vary commencement has been paid by the water
rates, as will be seen by a glance
at the city accounts. Labor of inspection is oharged in with salaries, and is paid for by the day.
Labor of construction or maintenance is oharged against the itemized acoounts as set forth annually
The water rates. The bylaw provides no soheme of collection and
should be amended in this reaped.
The water department has no bookkeeper. The water department
has no means of knowing beyond
personal inspection when a houee
is or is not occupied. That inspection oannot be made by the
same individual who keeps the
books, having several thousand
separate accounts, for no man oan
be in two places at one and the
same time. Iu this way neither
duty is propbrly accomplished.
Ma iy a watei user iB never entered
in the water ledger. Many an
aooount is never rendered from
tbat ledger. People must come
and pay tbe bills themselves. If
they choose to leave the town so
much the worse for the city, and so
muoh the worse for those who do
pay-
it is evident enough this is not
businesslike. Let ub compare Berlin
Ont. with this city. Berlin has a
population of 12,000. Berlin has a
city engineer and water superintendent combined in the same person, The oity pays half hie salary,
or thereabouts, and the water department the other. For sake of
cheapness a stenographer and
bookkeeper, a woman, is employed,
who keeps the .books, sends out
notices, receives rates, writes hor
duel's reports, and keeps the. letter
books. Her salary is met by the
out made on the water superintendent's salary by ihe oity proper
paying ita fair share Tbia may
look like robbing Peter to pay
Paul, but it ie not merely a question of accounting.
Under the system in RosBland
the general taxpayer esoapes pay
ing for the fire proteotion he receives through the water department. He escapes also for paying
for all various engineering services
rendered and the cost of the whole
.iB thrown upon the water con
Burners. For, take as an instauce,
a man in business on Columbia
avenue and a man holding resi
dental property in the suburbs, and
let it be aesumed that the tax assessment in either oase is the same.
In the former caee it will invariably be found tbat many times
the water rate is paid than in the
latter. In fact, the residential
man is paying next to nothing
more than the poor stockholders.
Thus the incidence of taxation
presses hardly upon the poor man,
and the rioh property holder e
capos soot free, or nearly bo, while
the shackholder and the water
oonsumer is made to bear the
real brunt of Rossland's fire protection.
With none in arrears, ro bad
debts beoause of efficient bookkeeping and collection, with an
equally divided tax  on fire' pro-
in water rates is possible, but until
suoh reform is made the revenues
of this oity will inorease so slowly
that no suoh out oan be considered
as praotioal politios.
The water department last year
made a profit, net, of over 13000.
It ought to have been considerably
more, bnt until the department is
properly arranged in the interrior
and is taken out of the hands of
interfering though possibly well
meaning busybodies, the citizens
can expeot no improvement.

"Boccaccio"    Playad   to   a   Crowded
Thaatra by a Qood Company
It is difficult to say at the first
onset what is there in "Boccaccio,"
as staged by the Olympia Opera
Company, that commends it to al
most all classes of playgoers
From a musical point of view there
is a good deal of fine musio, Some
of tbe airs, though not altogether
original, being catchy and popular,
and occasionally rising even above
tbis, though 'tis said that the voice
of the people is the voioe of the
gods. Gallery gode, maybe. However, the oi polloi have often enough
proved that the natural instinct is
better than the faddisms of so oalled recherche taste. Mozart may
be too "tuney" but he is hard to
beat. From the point of view of
drama the play is slight indeed, but
after all, plot is nowadays transpontine, and is being banished from
even those realms. Melodrama is
hardly the spirit of the age. Regarding "Boccaccio" ae a vehicle
for the low comedian nothing in
their repertoire couM hardly do the
Olymj im better oredit. There ware
aome looal hits, all too few, wbioh
were much appreciated. (Everybody rejoices when his neighbor is
disoomfitted). From the stand
point of singing merely there ie
little to be complained of in tbe
trained utterances of the clever
aggregation that was produoed last
night. And, lastly, from the point
of view of the human form, divine
and unadorned, there were sights
fsr soulptors. The ballet, though
cramped neoessarily for lack of
stage room, bb the musio was equally limited through lack of orchestra,
was excellent of its type. Everybody was pleased and in a cosmo
politan camp like thie what more
need be said 7
Lastly the management are to be
congratulated on the bumper house
gathered lr.st night. It was the
beet tbat ever the profession ever
assembled here. All that oan be
said to them is: "Do it some more,
you won't lack patronage,"

A DOG BENCH.
The gentlemen of the'committee
of the Winter Carnival want some
new ideas for the midwinter festivities. They want the people to
come forward with them and the
World hopes they will have a
plentiful supply The Would wishes
to contribute to their success by con
tributing a novel idea of its own.
Now it is very well known that
dering hunting season, that there
are more dogs around than a Btick
oan comfortably be shaken at.
There are Cockers and Blenheim?,
setters and pointers, spanielB and
retrievers, colleys and whatnots,
and above all "bird dogs." Ai d
the owner of each and every dog is
perfectly confident there is no other
dog like his in the town. He will
descant upon its merits as long as
a listener will stay to be bored. He
will lie about tbe number of birds-
that were shot over it until he imperils his future. He will elaborate
on pedigree till one would think he
was a Tom Cribb. j^ In fact there is
no subject that is more talked of
around about this district, in face
of the small number of grouse thai
are to be shot, than hunting and
dogs, Nor is RosBland alone in
this. Men from Nelson and the
Boundary will tell hunting tales
that will put any ordinary Ross-
landsr to the blush. This being
case the World idea, which it
cheerfully contributes to the gentlemen of the carnival committe without charge pro bono publico, iB to
have a dog bench, with a competent aeries of judges (don't know
where you are going lo choose) give
some prizes; there will be plenty of
entries from all over the country;
and the World will warrant that
there will be more enthusiasm,
with possibly a touch of Donny-
brook Fair, in this feature than in
any other that Roesland can possibly get up.

Anything relative to the city whicb
is notstriotly fit for publication, in-
as much as it might tend,  if published, to the disadvantage of the
worthy expurgator, is not published.      Some C. P. R.   track hands
were rude to the late mayor and
would not be schooled by him as to
their dutieB. Henoe it is manifestly
improper that anything relative to
an overhead  bridge on Washington
street    should be   published.
There waB not room for it in the report. Similarity if certain gentlemen choose to help the city in a
public-spirited manner, and certain
gentlemen do not, it is manifestly
improper that any such facts should
be taken official cognizance ofl
There was not room for it in the
report, of course. There never
would have been any room. Now
it is a well known faot,"at least the
"fact" has been proclaimed trom
the house tops frequently enough to
make it a fact, and moreover has
the unimpeachable testimony of the

striven every nerve and worked in

to improve the fire department and
reduce rateB. Such being the case
it is eminently improper that the
ohief of the fire department, who
manifestly cannot know anything
ol his own metier, Bhould embody
in his report facts that would go to
show that the fire department had
not been improved during the
past year, that it had seriously de

BOWDLERISM.
It is related that ia^very popular
!<>ily onee congratulated Samuel
Johnson on the completion of his
dictionary of the English language
that the work contained no improper words. "Been looking them
up, madam;" was the oaustio reply
vouchsafed by the gruff old lexice-
grapher who hated humbug. After
Johnson's time oue Bowdler pre
pared an expurgated edition of various English classics with all the
improper words and references left
out. The trouble with Bowdler and
most of hiB imitators, and there has
been a recent case of imitation in
Boston quite worthy of the illustri-
ous*original,is that the'r minds have
been bo filthily dirty tbat they saw
a double entendre in every thing
and ascribed an improper meaning
to any obscure sentence, going beyond the merely normal words
which serve to denote thingB which
are not generally used in polite
society when that sooiety is mixed

CHAPTER VIII (Continued)
'Oh'' quoth his Reverence, in an
altered tone. 'Then thou art free
at once to follow the promptings of
thy noble instinct, and serve thy
King and country as thou liatest.
I fear tbis will be a bloody war
you go to.'
' 'Tis like to be,' said the soliier,
brightening up and speaking out
boldly on a subject he loved, his
fine eyes flashing with martial fire
—'already the yellow sun of
Picardy flaunts on Edward's royal
lilies!'
'Ah,' put in the monk, 'and no
doubt ripens many a butt of noble
malmsey.'
'Already the red soil of Flanders
is redder by the red blood of our
gallant chivalry!'
'Yet even then not half so red,
good Earl, as the ripe brew of
Burgundy—a jolly mellow brew
that has stood in the back part of
the cellar, secure in the loving forbearance of twenty I masters. Talk
of honor and the breaking of spears
—what are all these to such a vat
of beaded pleasures? I tell thee,
Codrington, not even the fabled
pool wherein the rhymers say the
oursed Paynim looks to foretaste
the delights of his sinful heaven
reflects more joy than suoh a cob-
webbed tub! Would that I had
raore of them!' added the bibulous
old priest after a pause, and sighing deeply. As he did so an idea
occurred to him, for he exclaimed.
'Look thee, my gallant boyl Thou
art bound whither all this noble
stuff doth come from, and 'tis
quite possible in the rough and
tumble of bloody strife thou may's
be at the turning inside out of
many a fat roost and many a well
stocked cellar. Now, if this be so.
and thou wilt remember me when
thou seeat the gallant drink about
to be squandered on the loose
gullets of base, scullion troopers,
why then 'tis a bargin, and, in
paternal acknowledgment of this
thy filial duty, I will hear thy con-
feeaion now, and thy penanoe, I
promise, shall not be such as will
inconvenience thine aulive life.'
The knight bent his head, somewhat coldly I thought, and then
they turned and went over to the
oriel confessional, where the moonlight was throwing from the window above a pallid pearly transcript of the Mother and her sweet
Nazarene Babe, all in silver and
opal tintB, upon the sacred woodwork, and as tbe priest's black
shadow blottted the tender picture
out I heard him say—
'But mind, it must be good and
ripe—'tis tbat vintage with the
two white crosses down by the vent
that I like best—an thou sendest
me any sour Calais layman tipple,
thou art a forsworn heretic, with
discriminate,' and the worthy
churchman entered to shrive and
forgive, and as the casement closed
upon him the sweet, silent, indifferent shadows from above
blossomed again upon the doorway.
Dreamy and drowsy I lay baok
and thought and wondered, for
how long I know not, but for long
—until tbe dim aisles had grown
midnight silent and the moon had
set, and then an owl hooted on the
ledges outside, and at that sound,
with a start and a sigh, I awoke
onoe more.
'Fools!' I muttered, thinking
over what I had heard with
dreamy insequence—'fools, liars, to
set such a date upon this rest of
minel Drunken churls! I will
go at onoe to my fair Saxon, to my
sweet nestlings—that iB, if they be
not yet to bed—and tomorrow I
will give that meagre acolyte snob
a lesson in the misreading of hia
missal margins as shall last him
till Doomsday. By St. DunstanI he
shall play no more pranks with me
—and yet, and yet, my heart misgives me—my soul is loaded with
foreboding, my spirit is sick within
me. Where have I come to?
Who am I? Gods! Hapi, Amenti of
the golden Egyptian past, Skogula
Mista of the Sazon hills and
woods, grant that this be not some
new mischance—some other hor-
rible lapel' and I sat up there on
the white stone, and bowed my
head and dangled my apostolio
heels against my .own commemor-
tive marbles below, while gusts of
alternate dread and indignation
swept though the leafless thickets
of remembrance.

sumably they will not go on with
the enterprise unless the terms are
modified.
"Nothing should be said here or
elsewhere to weaken the hands of
Sir Wilfred Laurier and his colleagues, but it is unquestionably
the faot that there is a strong desire that the great projeot should go
through, and that they will be supported in granting such fair concessions as will seoure early prosecution of the great work."
VELVET AND PORTLAND
Amalgamation of Properties—Shareholders are
Willing.
At a meeting of the Velvet and
Portland companies thiB week, says
the London B. C. Review of Jan 8,
the scheme of amalgamation put
before the shareholders waB adopted, and although investors are
never pleased to pay up further assessments on a mining share, the
reports from a local engineer of repute [W. Thompson] as to the
absolute necessity of working the
two properties together, coupled
with the strongly expressed opinion
that under the new arrangem en
the properties should soon become
dividend paying, dearly shows the
wisdom of taking the present steps.
It is to be hoped tbat the municipality of Rossland will give this
section of the mining district the
transportation facilities whioh are
so badly needed, and if the smelt-
tng process which it is proposed to
adopt proves satisfactory, the new
oompany ought to make a satisfactory profit on its ores. There are
several other likely properties in
the Sophie Mountain district, whioh
will be at once developed when the
Velvet-Portland properties prove
successful.
