It Is somewhat Borprlalhg that the

to havo the Itest interests ot the community at hearer-have not considered
the advisability of having Gulden incorporated.    During tiie past jear tlie

that will exceed three or four hundred
dollars for the improvement  of  our j anow, In many pnrta of the Empire.

this   Province   have   whioh   do  not

with  which   we uro favored; nor aro
thoy as important. It. is quite possible,
! if a movement io incorporate was
i made, opposition from a few might ho
'met wilh; allll, wo predict that even
thit! small minority would in a  short
time be convened, wheu the advantages uf having some standing were
made   Known    to   them.    Golden

why tbo taxes which wo annually

should uot go to famishing for us

and supplies its citizens with water at
a much lower rate than tbo company
did who formerly controlled tiie system. Golden sliould not be caught

���*>f^f|Mf>itlflt|Mfl f|��lf
Now and then you hart read of a soldier being drummed out of the army for
cowardice, and you felt nothing but contempt for him. It is human nature to
despise a coward. No dog will own a
master who shows the white feather.
Cowardice In a citizen Is bad enough, but
when displayed by one wbo la paid, drilled aad equipped to fight our buttles and
-who has been passed upon as a brave
man you caa find no excuse for him. You
condemn him offhand and remember only
to avoid him. You go too fast Soldiers
have been disgraced who would have
made proud records if circumstance! had
been a little different. For every coward weeded out a thousand have been left
in the ranks.
Did you ever go to war expecting to
be killed? Of course not. Tbere would
be dead and wounded, but you would not
be among them. No one had cause to
wonder whether you were a brave man or
t coward until your first battle. Then
there were hubbub and confusion, and It
your nerve gave way you had plenty of
company, nnd tt was not commented oo.
You were afraid, mortally afraid. Don't
deny It, for no one but a bluffer will believe you. Shot nnd sholl and bullet and
roar of battle, with men Hinging up their
hands and screaming In agony, benumbed
you. It wns a horrible nightmare, and
you deserved neither praise nor censure.
You carried yourself better on the second
occasion, but don't say that on the third
you felt no trepidation. That would be
false and find no believers. Uow many
of us took In all the big battles, from Mc-
Clcllan'i first to Grant's lust, aud yet did
we sweep forward under Custer ut Sailor's creek without fear of death? There
were pale checks and chattering teeth
and choking hearts ai wa weut, and there
was a cause for It.
But It a soldier went through his first
battle with credit his courage was not
put beyond question. There was u harder trial in store for him. It wan the picket post at uight, with the enemy's posts
only half a mile away, and a day of battle was not to be compared to a turn of
two hours In the darkness under the
trees. Hero Is post No. 7 la the fnr edge
of a piece of forest. A quarter of a mile

moBt as safe as If at home on village

all is changed. There nro bushwhackers
prowling about by night; there ate scouts
seeking information; there arc spleu try
lag to penetrate the camps. Under covet
of darkness the enemy mny advance lu
force to new positions. (Jaunt am) suv
age dogs, driven from home by battle,
skulk in tbe thickets nml nre dcHperate
rith hunger, and at the lonely cry of the
midnight owl the bumirdi-j roust-tiig in the
dead trees wake up nud utter such
strange sounds thnt the picket's heart
leaps Into his throat.
There was something like pity in the
corporal's heart as he relieved post No. 7
at 10 o'clock nt night and whispered in
structlons to the smooth fuced liny who
was to enter lato buttle with the uight.
A boy he was, dud yet be had come out
of bis first battle with a good word from
all nnd had stood fire on tho skirmish
line and with the wagon train. It was
bis first picket post nl night In face of
the enemy. lie had given the -matter no
thought. Ho was cool and collected as
be took tho post, and he Inugbed as the
corporal warned him against getting over
excited and raising a false alarm. In
tbree minutes the f nol steps of the relief
could no longer ho heard, and the picket
tat down at the foot of his tree to wait
and watch aud commune, There was
home to think of���father, mother, brother and listers. While his thoughts were
busy be could also watch and listen. Il
was not against orders to smoke his pipe.
Kor ten minutes tbe boy's thoughts
were so pleasant that ht almost forgot
where ho was. Then hc was suddenly
���roused by a gust of wind which moaned
through tho branches above bis bend
and rubbed two limits together to mnke
an uncanny creaking. It was nothing to alarm, and yet It itt bli heart to
-beating at a furious rate and brought him
to hll feet to look about him as If expecting a blow. Loneliness, darkness, a gust
of wind���tbat wai the beginning of It.
Before 80 minutes had passed the boy
was trembling In every limb. He knew
be was seared, tie feared for fall courage, and ret be could not belp It. He
sank down and had a fight witb himself.
He argued tbat thert wai oo danger;
tbat It wai only the darkness; that tt was
foolish to get rattled over nothing, Ue
might bave fought hii feari back, but
tbe night had only begun to toy with him.
Somt animal���dog, foi or rabbit���wai

Thore was ��� pit, pat, pat, oo tbt dry
leaves, with oow and tben tbt breaking
of a stick. Tbt boy felt i chill from head
to beel ai tbe loundi reached bli ear.
Ht magnified tbem Into tht tread of a
man. His wide open ores transformed
every treo and bush into the form of a
human enemy stealing upon him. Ituo
away trom the post? No! Only half a
dozen bucIi cases wore ever known, and
the men wero babbling lunatics or dumb
idiots wben they came back to the reserve. Standing with his back to tht
tree, his musket ready and his eyes
searching tbe darkness, the boy waited.
If the danger would only cornel If the
ikdlking bushwhacker would rise up aad
strike at him aod break the spell and
give him the smallest show to fight for
bis life! But there wai darkness, and
tbe wind moaned like a wounded man,
and the forest seemed alive with uncanny noises. The boy threw his musket
away from him and sank down and wept
like a child. He knew that he wept, aod
he cursed himself. He realised that bis
nerve wai gone, and ht called himself a
cur and a coward. But hc could not
choke bacli hii sobs or bring the strength
back to his limbs. He fought ���God
knows how hard he fought���but thert
came a new fright over tbe knowledge
that he could not conquer. When an owl
in a thorn tree down lo the field sent
forth his dismal hoot, the picket groveled
with his face In tht dead leaves and
prayed God to havt mercy on him.
The clouds were racing overhead as the
boy sobbed aod prayed aod cursed. By
and by they broke up to let the moou
cast ber light at Intervals. From a cluster of bushes on the far side of the old
field a man began creeping and halting.
While the moon was bidden be crept.
When she Bent down btr light, ht crouched and waited, In a quarter of au hour
hc had crossed the field. With Intlnltt
precaution he climbed tht fence, aud he
made no more noise than a field mouse
ns bo crept under the trees aud mound
the bushes. The picket should be hereabout. To that creeping, skulking man,
whose homo hnd been In tbe path of war,
thero came no thought of falrnesi. War

A store in One Hundred and Twenty-
tilth street with ii luudablo desire to satisfy customers bad the following sin:i
painted and huug in several conspicuous
places: "Money refunded, or yon ean exchange for anything iu tho store."
The regular customers uodded approvingly wheu they saw tiii**-, as the rule of
the bouse bad beeu previously thut uo
goods could be exebuuged.
The first day the signs were up several
sums of money were refunded, When tbe
store opened the next morning tlte signs
were gone, aud a literary man wns engaged to write one less ambiguous. Tbere
was a reason fur tbis. Lato in the ufter-
noun of the Any llie signs were used a
young man from down town bought a
pair of DO cent suspenders in the store
nud a few minutes ui'terwnrd approached
n floorwalker aud said that tbey were unsatisfactory.
"Very well," said the floorwalker affably. "Do you wish your money back?"
"No," replied the purchaser, "I believe
I'll exchange."
"Just as you please," said the smiling
floorwalker. "Will you hnvo another pair
of suspenders V
"I think not; I'll Jn��t look around nud
let you kuow wben I find sotnetliiiic that
suits me."
In less than half nu hour the down
town young man called lhe floorwalker
to a counter aud Btlltli "Thai's what 1
want; those, with the silver backs." And
be pointed to an expensive toilet sol
which comprised military hairbrushes,
silver mug anil shaving brush, rnsurs,
mini ion re set, HOflpbox und a flue lentlicr
case to keep them In,
"Hut you're Joking," suld the floorwalker. "They nro worth 20 pairs of suspenders,"
"I can't help that," replied the other.
"I'm taking you at ymir word. There's
yonr sign, 'Money refunded, or you can
exebnnge for anything in the store.' It's
optional with me, and 1 wish to exchnngc
for 'anything In the store.' This is tho
'anything' that Bulls me."
They wrangled for awhile, and the
proprietor was called, He read the sign
several times, and then said, "You ute a
very bright young mun. It's on us this
time." Turning to tho floorwalker he
said, "Make the exchange as be desires
and haul down those signs before be has
time to buy anything else,"
Merchants cannot be too careful In tbe
use of this wonderful nnd complex language of ours.
Men Who Own Benutlfnl Genu Only
to Admire Them In Private.
"Because some men display uo jewelry
on their persons It docs not signify that
tbey do not enre for such things," said a
leading New York jeweler to a writer a
day or two ngo. "Indeed, there are plenty of men who nre ns passionately fond
of jewels as nny woman who ever lived,
but they seem to regard tho feeling as n
weakness which they arc half ashamed
of. Some men will own right up, but
tbey don't like to display their treasures,
because It Is not considered good taste to
wear much jewelry.
"I kuow ot bnlf a dozen business mer
and professional men wbo do not wear sn
much as a watch chain, yet they curry
about In their trousers pockets thousands
of dollars' worth of unset jewels, This Is
a littlo out af tho onllnni-y. Imt It Is a
foot nevertheless, The late Henry Ward
Beeeher, for Instance, used to carry In bis
pockets a number of beautiful diamonds
aud other precious stones, which ho would
sometimes tukc out In his band nnd gnttc
at in admiration for several minutes at a
time. Hc explained his hnbit by say ini:
that there was something so pure nud
beautiful about the gems that tbey delighted und fascinated him. Hc used to
say that it was ouo of tho traits of our
far buck barbarian origin���the Innate
fondness for bright gems.
"I know of n prominent physician up
town who, while riding about in his carriage on sick culls, entertains himself by
jingling a lot of unset diamonds, rubies
and emeralds In his hands. Hc sometimes groups tbem In tho scat opposite
und looks at them, while his face lights
up with admiration and pleasure.
"Ho ladles have this habit? Well, I
think not, I never met a womnn who
cured to hide ber jewels in her pockets.
On tho contrary, thoy always like to
hnve them set nnd displayed ns conspicuously ns possible. Tbey dou't believe

I am not an agriculturist, but for ten
years I lived with un undo who kept
cows and milkmaids during tbnt period,
It wns noticed tbnt certain milkmaids
could draw more milk than others. Our
most characteristic cow was Trieste, so
uiitned on account of her snd bcnrlng,
nnd It required tho most touching of border songs to prevail upon ber to give a
decent supply of milk. The old woman
who generally milked her always wound
up with thu "Lund of the Leal" to get
tbe creamy ending of the milking process.
A new hand ouce tackled Trieste with
sea sougs and dire consequences. Another cow was colled tho Evangelist on
account of her Intense hatred for psalm

mankind. In this oountry from one
canse or another, its victimB are numbered by the hundreds of thousands,
and those uillicled always feel tired,
worn out and miserable, and are subject to fits of melancholy or ill temper
without apparent cause. It is obvious
that the human body, in order to perform its fuuotions, must he properly
nourished, aud thia oannot be done
when the food is improperly digested.
Those who Buffer from indigestion
should exercise oare asto diet, aud only
easily digested foods shonld be taken.

Britain's Coal Supply.
Much discussion is still going on iu
Great Britain regarding tho question
of the coal supply, and mnny now
reilizothnt in a few generations at
most this will be a matter of vital
importance to the manufacturers. It
is uot entirely a quenion of the veins
becoming exhausted, as they may
extend to a great depth, but the
exp'iise iif mining will be so increased
ns depth is reached that the British
munufactutvr -a ill be placed under a
great disadvan'uge in competing wiih
other countries where the coal is more
easy of access. The output cf coul has
doubhd since the last luqury made hy
Royal commission thirty years ngo,
nnd ax one-fifth of the production l<
exported jt is snguestud that a tax In
levied with a viow to keeping thuco.il

The Calgary Herald, in sizing up
the Chinese question in n recent issue,
says: ���
Sir Wilfrid Laurier refuses tho request of the British Columbia Legislature to impose a tax of 8500 per head
ou Chinese immigrants for the rouson
tbnt the people of Eastern Canada oro
not prepared to go so far. With all
respect, we think Sir Wilfrid is wrong
There ore comparatively speaking very
few Chinamen in Eastern Canada,
while in British Columbia and the
Territories they are today a menace to
white labor and are crowding white
men ont of employment. Tbe present
tax Is altogether insufficient, One
hundred dollars per head is an insignificant sum to the wealthy Chinese
companies who are importing their
slaves into Canada by the hundred
and who can bo relied upon to recoup
themselves with interest from the earnings of iheir creatures. A tax of $600
would  entail  some   risk even   to  a

A Swap.
One evening at the D'vonshira club
a New York friend was talking to Phil
May of Punch about his youth. "You
ieem pretty well connected with tlie
wot Id. You haven't the appearance of
a man who knows what tinhappiues-.
means." "Haven't I?" responded the
artist with   his   odd   little  chuckle.
Lit mo tell you a very short and
very true story. Not half ii dozen
blocks from where we are sitting I met
a youngster oue dny wiih a big slice
of bacon between two slices of bread in
hands I wus carryiuy a hand
some walking stick, The boy looked
at my cane enviously und I looked at
the bacon hungrily. Our eyes met,
and. without speaking a word we
swapped, nnd I needed the bread and
bacon much more than ho ueedel tbe
cane."-Loudon Truth.

Some people have good luck they
