Mr. Alexander replied thai the
new companies might go across
the inlet to North Vancouver.

Opportunity to gather luel presented itself, and some tuned their

came a company official and said.
"You can only take twenty ol
these sacks; we will take all over."
Iliiving forty sacks aboard the
men did not like the idea of seeing
twenty go in this manner, so accordingly they returned to town and
asked pel mission to take away the
twenty sacks lhat tbey had already
put up. This was refused and a
company team was sent out lo the
mine to haul the twenty sacks ol
coal to town and the parties who
bad lackl d the coal were not even
given back their sacks which they
had secured at their owu expense.
Naturally, enough the victims ol

The Cause was Faulty Construction—It Never was
Used—The Structure
Broke in the Centre,
It is a $3,000 Loss to
jNorth Vancouver.
Between Sunday and Monday
the Seymour creek bridge, on the
Keith road, collapsed. Fortunately nobody was hurt. The bridge
is a total wreck, and never was
used. It was built last year at a
cost of $3,000. The immediate
cause was faulty construction, the
eastern abutment not being properly built, tbc bridge broke in the
centre, The length of the span
was 180 [eet,
Engineer J. W. Balmain submitted to the council on Tuesday
night the following report regarding the bridge in tpiestion, as well
as those on Seymour Creek. It
was as follows:
"As requested. I examined these
and find with regard to the one
over Seymour crei k that it has totally cullupsed, the catastrophe
occurring sometime on Monday,
"The. cause lies, undoubtedly, ill
the failure ol the liast abutment,
and Iioiii the fact that the debris
ol the eastern half of the bridge
lies up-stream, it is evident that
the structure lirst gave way at the
north-east corner, tilting at that
point towards the north and falling
several (eel till it struck the solid
bank ol the river, and tbe whole
turning on the west abutment -s a
pivit. By the loice ul the fall of
the east end the bottom chords
broke in the centre of the span,
the western half dropping easily
to the bottom in the middle of the
stream and remaining nearly intact, while the eastern half broke
into splinters, except the top
chords, which still hold together.
"The bridge approaches on
both sides are not affected but,
otherwise, the bridge is a total
"Lynn creek bridge is in want
ol attention. The logs composing the eastern abutment arc, to a
very considerable extent, rotten,
and 1 suggest that the cribbing in
front be filled up with boulders
and a fresh abutment formed inside the old one (there is room to
do this), and alter that, the old
logs removed and replaced by
sound timber.
"The pier in river between the
spans, has, 1 think been recently
repaired, but the cut-water should
be fixed up with boulders and any
delects made good.
"The timber ol trusses appears
sound, unless, perhaps, round the
boltdioloe, and there may be danger that the bolts "pull through."
A thorough examination ol this
should be made win 11 the bridge
ii being repaired] ami'bonis, nol
perfectly sounds removed, and
good material substituted,
■"1 do not I* ar any immediate
danger in the case of this bridge,
but think there should be no delay
in having it attended to."
Last Saturday the North Vancouver
Aquatic club held ils postponed regatta on tlie Inlet. The weather was

How many people hereabouts
have enjoyed the beautiful scenery
and ideal fishing at Battersea during the summer months just passed,
Did tbey ever pause to consider
where the place derived its name?
Perhaps they did and then dismissed the subject content in Unsure and certain fact that the village derived ils name fiom the
English Battersea. But the word
is no ordinary one and why not
probe further in an endeavor to
discover how the English Battersea came to be called such. It is
doubtful if many natives of that
bsrengh could suggest an answer,
and thi- subject has become more
interesting during tho past few
days owing to the fact that John
Bums, M. P,, the great English
labor leader at present touring
Canada, represents the constituency of Battersea in the British
House of Commons. To him the
question was addressed and an
interesting tale revolves upon his

Itari   gems ol   remliurnnce  ol
youth's merry days:,
An, loii.lli the thoughts lound the

The scenes of our how,und, our
labors and plays.
On sweet recollection oft Bashes
l.ellili us,
Tiiu'orchard spread out at the
lout ul the hill,
An,I conies to our ears   a   low,
musical chorus -
The hum "1 the bees 'round the
old culiir mill.
Ol fragrant the breath of the juice
lhat came dripping
From oui ol the maw ol  the
straw-colored press,
And hearl\ the smacks ol the boys
lips while sipping
The   mm et   rural   nectar,   oft
times to exd.SS.
The butterflies came   from   their
play inid the flowers
Ami fluttered away after drinking
their fill,
The humming birds winged from
their deep woodland bowers
To taste ol the sweets al the old
cider mill.
Throuu.li long,  golden straws we
would pipe thorare sweetness
' liy power ol suction from catch-
tub to lips
Until, our pig stomachs filled up
to replentness.
We'd gasp in our fullness like
chicks with the pips,
Then oil wc would scamper in mad,
merry racing,
And worry the echoes with shunts
loud and shrill;
Ah! never such pleasure as that
wc went chasing
In barefooted play 'round the
old cider mill.
Oriel olt follows pleasure! At midnight while lying
On low trundle bed   wc  have
wrestled with pain,
As some 'prisoned fiend in   our
innards was trying
To dig Itself outward to freedom
We've gulped paregoric and herb
teas and camphor,
Have taxed   the  old  mother's
medicinal skill,
And lelt that in future we'd not
i.ire a damphor

assist in defraying the expenses of
the necessary advertising, lie is
appealed to on the ground that all
his competitors will be represented
in the program, and he cannot
afford tube left out,
A certain Mr. Skiles, a suburban
gtocer, was asked lo have his card
inserted in the program ol a picnic
to be given by a local secret su-
ciiy, at a popular resort forty or
fifty miles away.
"How much will it cost me?"
he enquired,
"Only Si." replied the advertiv
j ing manager,
j    "Hump-only $2.   How much
space i]a 1 get for that?"
"One inch."
"Hi iii|i- -the whole of an inch!
I can 1 tit any kind ol an ad. 1 want
in that space, 1 .suppose?"
The grocer took   a   scrap  0
paper, wrote his advertisement on
it, handed it to the manager, and
in due time the program appeared
with this card in it:
"Beverly Skiles, (irnccr, No.

the use of this space, he thinks il
is an outrageous price, inasmuch
as all the groceries for this picnic
were bought at some other store.'r
Mr. Skiles has always maintained
that be got $2 worth ol satisfaction
out of this advertisement, il nothing else.

woman, "there's a Imrgular in the

John rubbed his eyes and protested mildly that il was imagination
"No, it isn't. I heard ,1 man
So John look a box of mutches
and went down. To his surprise
his wife's suspicions were correct.
Seeing that he was unarmed, the
burgular covered him with a revolver, and became quite sociable.
"Isn't it rather laic to be out ol
bed?" he remarked.
"A—er little bit," replied John.
"You're to Into, anyhow, because
I've dropped everything out ol the
window, and my palls have carried
them off."
"Oh, that's all right. I'd like
to ask one favor of you, though."
"What is it?"

It Is refreshing to turn Irom the
grafting in ilie .selling of public land!
here in New Zealand, In a paper
just received from there it is noted
thai during the past year the Government look over 100,641 acres, paying
a little over $20 nn acre, and this
land has been s lb-divided into small
holdings and rented to tenants at a
rate of about eighty cents an acre a
year, which pays more than tilt Gov
eminent pays for intension the
money and  leaves enough  to make
good macadam roads, The Government thus has n net income from tin
rent of the land and enables any (am
ily 1 1 get land without going into
hopeless debt. The Government also
improves these small holdings with
the necessary buildings, and ibis policy, pursued for years, has proven
eminently satisfactory to both the oc-
cpicrs and the state. Here wc throw
the public lands away so that speculators can collect the rent, In New
Zealand farm products are carried to
market al the -.one rate, regardless of
distance, making one piece of ground
as 6 1 to ihe workers as another.
