The Proposed Tram System.
The municipal council has an
exceedingly important duty on its
bauds in determining where the
live miles of tramway should be
laid and operated. The proposal
of the tram company are before it,
'.nit they are not considered quite
suitable for present requirements.
The proposal to give fully half the
mileage to a road out to Capilano
river is open to several objections'
1. The district west of the town-
site is entirely unsettled, and the
bulk of the land travelled is held
by speculators who have been
holding it for years.
2. True, the Capilano valley is a
most popular one for tourists, but
in the very near future there will
he a railway running to within a
few yards of the proposed terminus, which will fully supply the
3. ll the object of the tram
company is to open up and make
more valuable their own 160 acres
at the upper canyon of the river,
the sen ing ol that object will bring
its own reward, hence that idea
need nol weigh with the council.
The proposal of the council, on
the other hand, to provide belt
lines is good, and should commend
itsell to the company.   An amend-

Mr. II. VV, Young, in a very able

between labor and capital here,
lie would rather see the word

The capitalist who did nothing was
useless, anil '.he working man who
did nothing was as bad. Any
man in this country with energy
and. character was a capitalist of
the best kind. The Western

to make homes in North Vancouver than any other corporation in it. (Applause),

You would try it once—if it were not
good you would be a small loser, perhaps.
But Ogilvies would probably lose

They would also lose the custom
of every other woman who tried it

tried it but had been told that it was not

Therefore Ogilvies must make Royal
Household Flour the best flour because
they stake their reputation upon it, and if
you and thousands of others found it was
not the best, Ogilvies would ruin their

Ancient Theiitrlenl  l'rogrn«rae,
Thcator programmes were known
even iii ancient times, though they
were then of a very peculiar construction. In Qroece and Home they consisted of small tablets, which were
handed out to the audience at the entrance. Those occupying ihe best seats
obtained programmes beautifully worked In Ivory, while those occupying the
cheaper sr-ats were given tablets In
The bronze tablets were distinguished by a .love worked In the metal, and

of tlie kind peculiar to young authors
the hero had boarded an eastern bound

John leaned toward her. "Margaret,"

She turned her head with a resentful
' little gesture, lie was beginning badly. No bald head, even that of Opportunity, had a place in her picture of
youth and shitting golden lights mid
passlosato appeal; then, remembering
her rote ..f heroine, she nodded with a
forced little smile.

slowly down the aisle, beamed on tht
young couple and seated himself Ib
(ront of them,  lie arranged the blind

x siuile suddenly crept Into Mnrga-

twitched convulsively, iho dimple tn
ler chin displayed Itself In sudden
sympathy; sho glanced swiftly at her
companion. Then the Biulle on her
lips died away and bor heart stood
lie was evidently hurt to the quick.
His face—John's laughing face-was
grim and stent; his mouth was ont
straight, unforgiving lino. She had
broken his heart. Not that alone, bnt
ho know now just how unworthy she
was of bis groat, honest love. Hot
tears stung her eyes. Sho was nothing
to blm now—nothing to John-aud sbt
hud thought she did not lore blm.
"nli, John, I dol 1 do!" she whispered brokenly,
He turned, bewildered, to a sweet,
flushed face, raised timidly to his; to
blue eyes, wot with unshed tears, but
full of tender light, that met his bravely, and iu that long glance tho veil of
misunderstanding between them melted away.
In low whispers—ber slim, gloved
hand held tight In hls-she told blm all
ber foolish, wayward fancy, but whon

voice barely audible abovo tho rumbling of the train, "Do you not understand? 1 love you—Unit's enough.
It seems to me 1 havo always lovod
you. but I did not dare hope for you-
uniii today—and now"—
The lights of the great city flared
In Iho sky as the train glided smoothly Into the Urand Central station. Under cover of the confusion he bent and
pressed his lips lightly to her gloved
lingers, then regarded her with radiant,
triumphant eyes.
The old gentleman In front carefully
covered tbe bead so like Opportunity's
own and beamed on them In parting
benediction, Margaret flashed blm an
answering smile. "You aro eloquent

wiiii sudden mischief,
