** Qentlepion,
"I Inr. herewith to tender iny resin
nation as city clerk of the eity of
North Vancouver, to take affect at
once, or as ioou as possible.
«" Yours faithfully,
"(Hty Clork."
The above notice of resignation was
reud by the acting city clerk, Mr. 0.
T. Himliuii, at last night's meeting of
the eity council, when Mayor McNeish
presided ever u full complement nf
alderiu tin.
Alderman Foreman immediately rom
and movetf formally that the resignation should be accepted, ami that Mr.
Shepherd should lie asked tn continue
in the capacity of city clerk for u week
or two uml so help the council uut of
its  ililli. >,lt i
Alderman Irwin, iu seconding,
thought the middle of Juno might lie
a i.u.'i.i, time to include in the motion.
Alderman Foreman was willing to
make il June ISth.
Alderman Dick spoke in earnest op
position to the passage of Ihe motion
of acceptance. He reminded the couu
cil that when the former engineer ro-
llgned—and he had not served the
city us long us Mr. Shepherd—thc coun
ill had nit.n.l to provide him wilh u
liuli.liiy uml pay expenses, seeing thai
he was resigning through' overwork.
"Tbe I'm clerk," said Alderinau
Dick, "has worked Iwu yean without
a liuliilni. Hu yuu realiie, gentlemen,'1
he continued with emphasis, "Ihut we
Imu bail a good city clerk I—one Hint
it will be hard to duplicate! He has
worked since 1007 without a vucutiu
If we were to suspcud Mr. Sbephcrlff
for three months ami so force liini.Jn
take a vacation it would lie but
act of i in t."i in ii charily." Alderman
Dick dwelt upon Mr. Shepherd's value
tu Nurlh Vaueouver. It was a ucces
my to retain hii lerviccs if they could
In- retained. Tbii was uot a question
tu be lightly treated, but one to be
icriouily cuitiidcrcd. "It is not mini'
than six iinini lis ago," said Ihe elder-
man, "tbat tho mayor aud the city
lurk hud occasion to go down cast,
and his worship then told tho council
that this man's ability wai luvaluahlo
to tha city." Alderman Dick reltor-
iiifil that the best uml wisest step to
pursue was to give Mr. Shepherd a
well ili'scri nl holiday ami get hlm iulu
shape to uio the work.
Alderman Eraser thought it regret
table that thu city hail not been pro-
riding vacation! for its officials. He
and M.I,'iinini Hiss, however, believed
that as there was no excuse given in
the city clerk's letter the resignation,
ought to be accepted by tiic council,
Alderman Irwiu fully appreciated
the iiii'l Hint Mr. Shepherd hail nn
lend iniiliinl service to the city. The
council wus aware, however, that he
had been considering putting his rcsig
nation before the council fur loiiif
little time, lie thuiight that the rcsig-
nutiuu shuuld lie accepted with regret,
The matter was une which should lie
-I,alt  wilh in a businesslike way.
Alilomian McBae shurcd the huiii"
view. The muyur thereupon submitlcd
the inuii.in tn Ihe council, ami dct'lare.l
it curried with one dissentient voice.
Consideration wuh then given lu llic
matter uf advertising fur a fully t|uali
lied mun tu replace Mr. Shepherd. The
view was lirsl advanced by Alderman
Irwin Hint applicants shoulil be asked
tu slute Hie salary expected, but this
mel wilh disagreement from otber
aldermen. Alilcrinuii Mcltac was pur
tieulurly omphalic. He Ihuught that
such a courso might load the rounc'l
tu choose the wrong man by reason uf
tbe imiii,iii.ii salary he desired, uml
be alsu cooiiderctl that the council
shuuld know whul the posjtlon wai
worth. It wus Muii,I lhal the preient
eity clerk's Milan was ♦ 150 a month,
but ai,i,'iiiuiii Dick pointed out tbat
Mr. .'.In i'lu-i'i':, initial salary was only
■•tin a in,mill ut a time when ther'
were hardly any bylawi drafted. It
wai eventually agreed that the advt-r
liiemi'itt should tall for applications

through the Art Gallery in that eity.
In one of tlio corridors waa a uolln'-
tion of iipagos of certain mythological
deities. The visitor wan not greatly intonated uutil bo came to ouo whoso tape
was entirely covered with his long liuir,
it bail bean combed down in inch u
way as to conceal his features, lie
tur/ied to tho guide ami asked the reason for. this peculiarity. "Ob," was
tbe response, "that is tho gud of Opportunity; and Iiiu hair is combed down
io that it will be difficult for people to
recognize bim." I'ushiug usitlu the
hair it was seen that bis face wn,
beautiful to look upun, but for the rcn
son just given the majority would pan
him by.       ,
If that is a true story it la not illustrative of Oanada today. Here tlte
god of opportunity is to be seen in
every eity ami town ami village, lie
stands with open arms on the prairies,
on tbo great mountain slopes of Hrit
ish Columbia, away down by tiic A>
lactic seaboard, in Iho forests of Now
Ontario and ou the frown short's of
Hudson's Hay. It is only a l.iiml mini
who cauuot see him, anil liis smile is
so winsome, his appeal so inviting that
only an idle man fails to grasp him
by tin' hand.
"The Land of Opportunity", is ;,
favorite title for locturce on Cunuiln
in tbe United Kingdom, ami il is n
good title, but I am afraid it is Iv

ami Ihey arc disinclined In believe

what makes a man. afler a

Beauty and its Worth
On all sldea, in every land, the hand of Nature has beeu
lavish in putting before us beauty in its fairest garb. By
this beauty our minds are liftod to higher planes by pure,
ennobling thoughts. From it comes the inspiration of the artist, whose mind and band hut reflect that which he sees
iu Nature's loveliness.
"How beautifull" exclaimed a lady tbe other day as sbo
entered our OUT GLASS BOOM. It ia Uke a chapter from
fairy land." She was a woman wbo appreciated real beauty
and real worth, and ln a moment of Ume rocognlzed in our
display of Out Olaas the master hand of the workman tha
reflection of ton true artist's mind.
There hi a magic in our Out Olaas which attracts all, It
is tho magic of quality and good taste.
As a wedding present a pleco of our Out Glass stands as
a leader, being highly appreciated by tbo brldo whoso dream i.i
—A Homo Beautiful.
Do not fall to visit our Olass Boom. IU boauty will repay you for your trouble.

al sntnil oi Ilie leading financial
houses, uud lhe voung mail was simply
tujrudui id. lull nothing was suiil us to
his requiring u position. When tbey
returned to St. Swillicn's Lune, Lord
Rothschild shook bunds with bis com
punion ami Lmii' him good morning
"Ilul," stammered the young fellow,
"I thought vou were guing lo help mc
In get u position." "Have I not belpol
yuu/" wus the reply, "Vou have
beeu seen with me, thut is enough.''
i'l- to thut moment the gotl of Opportunity hud been invisible lu thut yuuug
