That North Vancouver has one
of the finest water-frontages and
harbors on the Pacific coast was
most ably shown by Hon.    Mr.
Carter Cotton in his address to the
board ol trade ol North Vancouver
on the evening of the 18th, and too
much stress can not be put upon
the sound advice he gave to the
board "that this excellent  waterfront should be made available ior
the commerce and shipping that
would come to it."   Keeve Kealy
struck the key note ol  the theme
when he urged that now was the
time to get a bill put through the
dominion   house   authorizing   a
bridge to he built over the Second
narrows, as before we can hope to
get capital to come in here in thc
shape of manufactories, we must
be in the position to be, at least,
able to offer them in the near future
railway transportation.   If this is
done, then the railways will not
need much pressing to build a line
in, as they will be only too willing
to go w here they can get traffic.
With our large extent of water
iront facing on a harbor which is
justly acknowledged io be among
the finest in the world, and, remembering that our trade with the
Orient, great as it lias grown, is
yet in its infancy, the future ol tin
business that will be done is almost
impossible for one to teulize, and
now iii the tune to nuke known by
every means iu our power the
advantages we can offer lo

•joud sties are available. ,

The British'Columbia government office in London should be

When the company first took hold
of the ferry it was improved immensely by putting the steamer
St. George into commission. Last
summer and this the hall hourly
service was run, not so much for
the residents as it was for visitors.
The place has grown in leaps and
bounds till now it needs a regular
half hourly service—if not a boat
every twenty minutes. This is a
question of finance and expediency
and must be taken up and settled.
Close on $300,000 have been
raised by the council and expended in public works. This in
itself should be a big inducement
to improve the means of trans
portation. The board of trade the
other night realized this fact and
took up the question and discussed
it in all its bearings, especially tlie
ferry. It was pointed out that
consciously or unconsciously the
ferry company could render ineffective the best efforts of the
people here. Consequently the
matter was left to the executive
council to prepare a statement and
submit same tu the company tor

There was a well-attended meeting of the Hoard of Trade on
Tuesday evening in the municipal
hall. Vice-president Phillippo was
in the chair and there was a large
attendance. Hon. F. C. Cotton,
the representative of this riding in
the legislature, gave a lengthy
address, which was much
appreciated by those present.
The question of the ferry service
was discussed at length in all its
phases. A resolution was passed
unanimously to the effect that it
would be to the detriment of the
municipality as well as the ferry
compauy to revert to the hourly
service as contemplated. It was
also r '' ,'uil on motion to leave it
to the executive oi the board to
bring belorc the company details
of other needed improvements in
the service.

The other night at the board of
trade meeting Hon. Mr. Cotton
said that not many realized what
it was going to mean for this
province. There was no doubi
they had succeeded so far as anyone who visited the annual lair
could testily, but they should pay
attention not only to the raising of
fruit, but to its proper shipping
and the development ol markets.
He thought he could say without
egotism that the present provincial
government had done a grent deal
to develop the fruit business ol
British Columbia, and they had
certainly by tlieir exhibitions in
London shown the British people
tlic quality ol fruit that could be
grown in B. C. "I do not think,"
he added, "that there is any
industry that supplies a country
better or makes the surroundings
of its people more pleasant than
that of tlie growing of fruit, and

h is almost invidious to ' particularize amongst numbers of such

St. John's School.
On Tuesday last North Vancouver was honoured by the presence
of the bishop, who ca-" to bless
and dedicate St. John's school.
The alteration of the ferry service
made it sonv what difficult to carry
out the arrangements, but in ipite
of various tinforseeti happenings all
passed olf most successfully.
The Bishop and Mrs. Dart, with
others from New Westminster, arrived In time for the school dinner,
towards tht- end of which some
surprise began to be expressed that
none of the clergy from Vancouver
had yet made their appearance.
It transpired subsequently that,
having mistaken their direction,
they were enjoying an unexpt. ted
country walk ; six ol them succeeded in arriving, hot and tired,
after their exploration of the less-
known parts ol the parish, only
half an hour late. Two others,
however, were not so fortunate,
and did not arrive till later. At
last, when the school stall .nu the
boys and their parents were assembled in the class-room, which
serves a: a temporary chapel, the
blessing was begun. Alter the introductory versicles, Psalm viiL
was sung with its antiphon. The
lesson Irom St. Matthew xviii. was

was lent to the evening by the

No woman should marry a man till
she has seen blm sharpen a lead pencil. She cau tell by the way he does
lt whether he Is suited to her or not.
Here uro a few Infallible rules for her
guidance iu the mutter:
The man who holds the point toward
him and close up against his shirt
frout Is slow aud likes to have secrets.
He Is Ibe kind of man who when the
dearest girl in the world Duds out that
thero are "others" and asks him who
they are and what he means by cull-
lug ou the,,, will ussiune „n air of excessive dignity.
The mini who holds lhe |«'ii<il out

It, bit ur miss, Is Impulsive, Jolly, good
niilureil and generous.
Tie who leaves a blunt point Is dull
and plodding and will never amount
tu much, lie is really good hearted,
but Hti'is his chief pleasure in thu
commonplace things of life.
lie who sharpens his pencil an Inch
or more from the point is high strung
nnd Imaginative and Bubjecl to es
uiieriint lllghts of fancy, He will always be Beeklug to mount upward aud
accomplish ,hints In the higher regions of business nnd art, 11 ml his
wife's greatest trouble will be to hold
him down to earth nnd prevent his
(lying off altogether 011 a tangent,
The ninn who sharpens bis pencil nil
11 round smoothly and evenly, ns though
It were planed off iu au automatic
■harpener, Is systematic und slow to
nncer. but he Is so undevlatlng from a
Used principle that he would drive n
woman with a sensitive temperament

im the contrary, lio who jumps in
nud leaves the BUUrpouod wood as Jag-
god as saw teeth around the lop has
11 nasty temper and will spunk the
baby on the slightest provocation.
There lire certain women who enn
mauuBO that kind of man beautifully,
however, und If ho gels 11 wlfo with a
calm, persuasive eye ho will come

James Freeman Clarke,
When James Freeman Clarke was
a youug man bo visited  Salisbury,
England.   Here tho beautiful cathedral lifts its spire 404 feet Into the
air. The spire Is topped by a ball, uud
on the ball stands a cross.   From the
| ground the ball looks llko an orange,
! but Its diameter is really greater than
I a man's height.
Workmen were repairing the spire.
j Mr, Clarke saw them crawling round
i the Bllm steeple In the golden after-
| uoon like bugs ou a bean stalk.   The
I impulso came to him to climb the
| spire and stand on the horizontal beam
j of the cross.   Accordingly nt dusk.
' when the workmin hud left, the young
American   slipped  In   lllld   made  his
way up the stairs to thu little window
which opened to tlie workmen's stag-
lug.  To run up tlie scaffolding to the
i ball was easy.  Then came tbe slightly
I more bulging curve of the ball.    A
short platform gave bin) foothold. Ha

a of the cross and pulled himself up.
