argue, aud very reasonably, that a city

to inspire tho bulk of its citizens with
appreciation of art, whether iu junior
Mr.
Lcyland and Mr. Gee arc recent arrivals from the obi country, Lancastrians

to believe, judging by the quality of
their wares and their experience and

During the regular ineeling of Ihe

the following letter whieh he had re

gesleil thai a Idler uf acknowledge

lhe thanks uf the Council fur Ihe
company's courtesy in supplying lui.<
infurmalion.
Alderman Dick, however, did not
agree with Ihis course, contending thul
according tu the contexl ol ihe letter
there was very little excuse for the
council putting furward another ley
law fur bridge purposes, since the let
ler inii'l that Ihe company had suf
Helen! funds to go ahead wilh llic
project. Aidcriuaii Diek thought the
Council was ontitletl lo still furlner
inliiiiiiiition,
Alderman Frascr concurred with Ihis
viow. Two questions were, he Ihougbi,
docs the company want the council to
subscribe more money this year! Ami
whut difficulties have they in securing
the ground for Ihe ajiproachcsl
The Meyer pointed out Hint the
bridge company's charier read lu the
offect that Ibey were not to encroach
upon the V, W. ami >', > riglil-oT-w»y,
but he believed that this restriction has
been removed.
The Mayor expected that in aboul
a week's time the council would have
every bit of information it required:
Alderman Frascr considered they
might reasonably gather from the lot
ter that everything  was "plain sail
Alderman Dick moved tbat the letter be received and held uver. lu its
preset!) form it was not tho kind of
letter the Council wished to. receive.
It seemed to liim that there was sume
thing else to come up iu relutiuti tu
tbe |iruject.
Alderman Irwin agreed thut, accord-
ing to the loiter, there was uo call
fur I url Iif r funds ul present, ami there
wus every reuson to believe thut thut
wus quite correct. It would be poor
linunees to submit a bylaw i,, raise
money prematurely,
A decision was arrived at on the
lilies suggested by Alderman Diek, the
letter being received und held uver
pmiding further information.

whom many records remain,
Murgurel I,vull, of Dennilainl, in the
parish of Muryton, three miles from
Montrose, went lo sleep on Wednesday,
June VI, 1812, uud did not wukc , for
two days. Hhe went In sleep oguin on

fully awake she Somplalued uf glddl

been blistered, bled, uud Immersed in
cold water. She merely tliougbt she

There is also lhe French   case   of
Kli/.nlii'lli Allen, of til. Iluillaill, in-ill-
Muns, who in I Hr, when 66 years of
age, fell asleep for four days, and
shortly after waking went off lo sloop
again for IH hours. For the succeeding
five years she slept regularly every day
from five o'clock in the morning until
nine o'clock at night: In 1748 site was
prevented by the ague /rom sleeping
for threo weeks.
In one of her periodical fits ef sloop-
ing needles were thrust into hor flesh,
pieces of .burning rag applied to ber
nose, and pins placed under her 1'ngcr
nails; sbo was even whipped, but nothing could nv.ni.en her.
Samuel Chilton, ef Tinaburg, near

years of age, fell into a profound sleep
on Muy III, MIU, from whicii ho could
uot bu awakened for a month, whon he
suddenly urosp ami went ou with his
work, He did not, however, regain the
power of speech until another month

then he suddenly awoke, dressed, and
walked ubout the room, under the impression thut he hud only slept for one

August 17 to November Itt, 170?. He
went i.n in sleep again almost iinme

The attacks became more frequent us

I. said uut lu puy thc tinilnu^crs. ur ul
Itusl not to firing tliein fortunes This
m I'tirlly accounted for by Ihe faet lhal
on lhe very lirst official journey un

whieh i-auscd distrust in the Inn.   Yet

oiisisls of one engine and one car

n ou mosl of lhe nn,i,niiin.- in
Switzerland, uml il works ou the saute
principle as the Bwisa railways. It
litis whut arc kuown us double pinions
working nn a ruck in llic centre of the
roadway; lhal is, of course, besides
the ordinary wheels
In order to procure the safely of tin
I'Ussengcrs as far as is humanly pos
slide the engine is always placed at
Ihe lower end. This is ever the ease,
whether lbc train is going up the
mountain or descending,   The train's
urriagc is uot coupled to ll.e loco
motive; otherwise Ihe former precaution would be rendered of no avail.
Thus if tbe engine happened to leave
Ihe rails thc carriage would not of tie
ccssity.follow it.   The speed is not ei
ilnraiitii', tu put il mildly. Four miles
an huiir!
As staled, the journey is performed
seven times a day by Ureo trains,
that is, of course, during thc season.
Nor is tho fare remarkably cheap. Tiic
amount charged for a return ticket is
(1.20. Ktill /or people who aro either
lazy or who tit unable to make the
