Councillor Cornish—At the start
there were 210 signatures to a pc-
tion, which proposed going ahead
without delay. That meeting evidently was held to back up the
petition. Councillor Morden said
there were about 100 present.
Now, out ol lhat number only 40

Councillor Cornish—I would pay
more attention to the petition ol
210 signatures, which asked the
council to avoid delay, than to tbe
resolution which, so it states, says
it was unanimous. I am informed
that the reason so many signed the
petition was misrepresention.
Councillor Morden said that
Councillor Cornish was laying too
much stress on the delay part.
There was no delay and there was
no misrepresention.
Councillor Cornish—Now, one
or two I have spoken to said they
signed the petition, because it had
been represented to them that by
signing tbey would thus avoid delay in construction work.
Councillor Morden—I stated to
a number that if First street was
taken there would be a delay.
They would get tied up with the
engineers and contractors. There
must be something radically wrong

the people on this question. You

Councillor May—Not alraid!
Councillor Cornish—The form
in which the meeting was called
was wrong. It was called through
the Sunday morning's paper "to
discuss railway matters," and the
most of us don't get the paper until Monday. This was an important matter, and many thought that
that was to be the subject ol discussion, and did not imagine that
it was street railway affairs. Other meetings being on at the same
time prevented many turning out.
No one was present from wards
one and two.
Councillor Morden—The resolution docs not ask tbe route to be
changed on the outside. It's cowardly not to submit the question
lo the ratepayers. Why don't you
consider the wishes ol the people?
Councillor Cornish — Twenty-

Box Social.
St. Andrew's Church was the
scene ol a successful box social on
Tuesday evening, the edifice being
well tilled. An excellent programme bad been prepared, which
proved to all that the local talent
is worthy of great praise. Among
the many items on the lengthy list
were the following:
Address by Kev. J. D. Gillam,
the Miss N. Philip, recitation; Miss
E. 13. Carey, song; Mr. Quinn,
yarn, "Paddy and lhe owl;" Mrs.
Holdsworth, sacred solo; Miss
Philip, recitation; Miss Clara Fogg,
vocal selection; Mr. Templet, song,
Mr. W. Gteen and Miss LaPenotiere, duet. Mrs. Williams and
Mrs. Gillam presided at thc organ.
The recitation given by Mr.
Quinn elicted much applause,
while the vocal and instrumental
selections were heartily encored.
Tlie handsome boxes prepared
by the fair sex were then auctioned
olf to the highest bidder, and it
might be mentioned that the bidding was very brisk. Messrs. R. J.
Quintal G. A. MA..uu and Alex.
Philip officiated as auctioneers in
a capable and witty manner.
The receipts ol the evening
were about fifty dollars,
lea and coffee was served, after
which the happy participants
wended their ways, highly pleased
with the success ol the social.

According to tho National Magazine,
"men in tbo cities work twice aa hard
as tho farmers, and they get few or no
holidays. Thousands und thousands of
professional men, clerks and men in
small business enterprises delvo and
toll their entire lives iiway and at the
end aro carted out to tho cemeteries
without having had any nioro leisure
or enjoyment lu ihelr lives than a horse

held, Is that the cltj "ui", as a rule, Is
tho harder worker und eels much less
enjoyment out of life, lie longs for tho
rural scones and occupations of tho
fanner; Ills dearest lm|ie Is to get back

William  Miller  Back In Orkney After
Thirty Years' Absence in the
Canadian Far North.
No longer an explorer of the unknown Antarotlo, but a prosaic trading
vessel in the service of the Hudson's
Bay Co., the famous Discovery has Just
been berthed In tbe West India Dock,
London, after her lirst voyage to tho
Arctic regions. The Discovery brought
home an Interesting personage in William Miller, a man of nearly seventy
years of age, who has spent half a
century In the employment of the Hudson's Boy Co., nnd returned home to
live In retirement in his native Orcadian town of Stromness.
Miller has bad charge for nearly thirty years of the post named Mlstesslnce,
on Rupert's River. He was the only
white man In the Indian settlement of
forty or llfty souls, yet tho life was
thoroughly congenial, and only falling
eyesight has compelled him to give lt
up, Ills llfo was that of the hardy
pioneer of the wilds ot unknown Canada. The nearest settlement was
twelve days' march, or 300 miles distant.
In winter, Journeys wore accomplished on snow-shoes, or by sledges, drawn
by teams of Kskiino dogs. Black bears,
reindeer, and numerous other kinds of
game provided abundance of work for
the ride and fund for the settlers. Miller made an annual Journey down Rupert's River to Rupert's House, on the
ehores of Hudson Bay. The produce of
this district was conveyed In a dozen
large Indian Cannes, manned by Indians, and on the rvlurn Journey these
were loaded up With stores for tlie
coming winter.
Willi the exception of this brief Interlude. Miller rarely saw a white man
from one end of the year to the other;
and until be arrived In London ho had
not set foot upon lhe streets of a civilized town for nearly half a century,
except for one visit to Mnntreal.
Under the command of Capt Gray,
one of a well-known Peterhead family
ef whaling masters, the Discovery left
the Thames on June 15. bound for the
company's trading station on CharlUn
Island, at the extreme south end of
James Bay, an arm of the greater Hud-
Bon Bay. A fairly good passage was
mado across the Atlantic, but when 100
miles from the entrance to Hudson
Strait, tho vessel entered a vast field
of Ice floes.
The Discovery, though specially oort-
Btructcd for Ice work, found the floes
Impenetrable. Capt. Gray availed himself of every "lend," and rammed and
butted with all the skill and daring he
commands, but while the ship took no
Injury, sho was firmly beset, and progress became almost Impossible.
In this unfortunate position rim remained for Ave weeks, when at length

What   Scotland   Has   Lost   Through

Scotland has Ihrough lhe death of
Cameron of Lochlel lost one ot those
grand old chieftains who to n far greater degree than the peers of the northern kingdom constitute Its true nrislu-
cracy and are regarded as such bulb at
homo and abroad, writes the Marquise
do Fontenoy. For Loohiel—those great
chieftains are Invariably known and addressed by their territorial title—was
the twenty-fourth chief of iho Clan
Cameron, Inheriting the dignity In an
unbroken mate line from ancestors who
figure Illustriously on almost every
pnge of Scottish history. In Set land,
for Instance, the Duke nf Argyll Is

to be a duke and the brolber-ln-law
of lhe King, as well ns Invested with all

Those who wish fur a description of
the state which Is maintained at Ach-
tmcarry Castle, I would refer to the
into Queen Victoria's "journal" of her
•life in Iho Highland," nnd In which
-ho describes a visit which she paid
I.. Lochlel In 1873. and of tho profound
Impression It made upon her.
Among bis ancestors wns that Ewen
Cameron of Lochlel, the hero of the
buttle of Klllleeriinklo In 1689, who Is
said to have killed the last of the
wolves that wandered nt large In the
British Isles, and who forms tbe subject nf such eloquent praise In Mao-
onlay's History nf Engl |, where he

Highlands." II1* grandson was ihat

lb,-,." He fell lu the battle of Cul-

marked with his Inlilais, llgure In the
Museum "f Antiquities at Edinburgh.
The-late chieftain was his great-great-
Breaking ii dentlr.
He Is a rather serious minded boy
who has more sense of responsibility
than many grown persons. So when
lie wns sent to his grandmother's lo

no little self Importance.
"Now, Alfred." bis mother snld,
"you mustn't tell grandma suddenly,
because It might shock her, even
though she knew Aunt Martini was III.
Tell It to her gently."
"All right," assented Alfred, starling
out on his mission with mingled solemnity and eagerness.
Arrived st his grandmother's house,
he greeted her wilh a sober "Hello!"
ind then proceeded to "brenk the
news" by snylng:
"Aunt Murln's dead, grandma, but
you mustn't feel bid, 'cause she was
pretty old, anyhow. You'll be the nut
one, I a'pose."

I've got to own up. Wo moved to

appcnriiuee of my newly wushed
clothes on llio line was tlie signal for
them to hang their rugs out of their
own back windows and give them a
good beating, By the time those rugs
wero renovated i*y clothes wero ready
for tbe tubs again. Week after week
I protested. Tbe Janitor's sympathy
was finally enlisted In my behalf, but
not even he could change Iho programme for healing those rugs. After
Buffering at tho bunds of my enemies
for a wholo year I determined upon revenge. The only way lo get It was to

They Associate Spectral Hounds With
Mountain Storms.
One of tho many curious superstitions of the Welsh peasantry la that ol
Cron Annwn, or "the spirit hounds ol
the air." When a storm rages over the
mountains of Wales tho peasant will
tell you that his ear can discern the
howl of the Cron Annwn mingled with
that of the wind, but sufficiently clear
and distinct to admit ot no mistake ol
what it Is.
These "spirit hounds," ho tells you,
are tho spectral dogs which hunt the
souls of tho dead, or which forotoll by
their expectant cry tho approaching
death of Bomo person of evil deeds. Fow
of lhri.se who pretend that tbey can
so readily distinguish Iho cry of till
soul hunting pack ure willing to admit
that ihey have ever aotually seen i
Cron Annwn, "for," they say, "who
would linger until Buoh specters dawned upon Hi" sight?" Thay are described by Fnllosln and alsu in Iho ".Mnhlii-
oglon," where It Is said they aro of o
eleiir. shining white, with red oars.
Tho ub'Ve seem, to be the universal
description, and nil that account the
iiniii"!- of "Mythology of tho Ancient
Druids" gives il a-* Ills opinion lhat
liny are really "mystical transformations of Druldlsh priests, with their
whllo robes and red tiaras,"
In the popular superstitions of Ireland, where n similar belief in spectral
h muds exists, thoy are said to he "Jet
black, with eyes nnd teeth "t lire." Old
Con MiMleh.'iel, who murdered twenty
persons In the early part of the fifteenth
century and who got rid of his victims
by burning ihelr bodies, Is said lo have
been eaten by Bpeclral dogs "that
could be seen high In Iho air awfuily
rending and tearing his desh."   One of
the I Hilarities of tbo Cron Annwn Is
that the farther away they are the
louder Ihelr cries appear, the Bound
decreasing as Ihey draw near.
