A somewhat peculiar case was tried
at the Waterloo Assizes recently It
was au action brought by it girl named
Dresh, aged 111, now employed iu Berlin by the W.G. & R.Co., but formerly
a servant in the employ of u Mr.
Eggiir, widower nud hotelkeeper iu
Walkertou. Miss Dresh was the only
female emplo.ted iu the bouse. She
deposed that defendant did not provide
proper fuel with which to light the
lire; but when he lit a lite he was in
lhe habit of using coul oil to assist,
uud that plaintiff, following his example wi'h defendant's knowledge, ou
one occasion met with a serious mishap whereby her arms nnd hands wei'e
terr.bly burned. After some months
she brought action fur damages
t hrough her next friend, Mrs. M. Eby,
ol Berlin. After hearing the evidence
the j try awarded the girl $''00 damages, although it is ultogetrer likely
that the case will be appealed.
The Brant ford Courier says that an
amusing case came up More the Presbyterian Synod at Hamilton lust week,
when James Munroe, of London, who
was suspunde I by the London Presbytery some 15 years ago, asked to be
reinstated. It appears that the suspension look place because he disturbed
the congregation at sundry times by
"involuntary vocal sounds," and it is
understood that said sounds consisted
of a series of well developed snores.
The circumstance involves the important consideration that Mr. Munroe
perhaps wus unable to rest we'l ut
night, and that tne voice of his minister noted ns the very six-thing syrup
which his constitution stood nun li in
need of. There arc lots of clergymen
who have that effect ami it is a wonder that some enterprising individual
has not long ago bottled up their discourses in phonographs and sold them
as sure sleep producers.
Tho Pennsylvania coal miners'

Marian kissed her sister and said nothing. But the next evening when sho

TBAPPER TOM'S K0BBBR
enjoy tno
Trapper Tom lived alone in a "dugout" iu the Black Hills.
Tom had u hard time of It, for someone, or something, was forever stealing
his things. Tint he lost his hat, then a
bout, tiieu n piece of bacon; this waa
fnlloiycil by the disappearance of his
washing basin, and there was a robbery
from his traps.
It was perplexing In the extreme, for
if lie went away even lor a collide of
days, aud left his door open, which, k*y
the way, he could not ovoid, having uo
means of securing it on the outside,
soiuctliing was sure to vauish.
Tom was not a capitalist, bnt In snm-
mer he earned a living by digging cellars
for new settlers, aud iu winter uy trapping.  Neither wus Tom's house a work oi art; he liud literally ting it on tne top
of f. kuoll, and roofed it with sods, so
that from tho outside it hn'l very much
the appearance of a large mole hill. Tho
kuoli wliicii Tom had selected for his
home wns bounded on one side by the
lake, and on the other side by a popular
grove which abounded in rabbits.
In the winter Trapper Tom, as ho was
funiiiutrly culed, trusted almost entirely
to this grove to supply him with food.
He always kopt scleral gin trapu in the
rabbit runs uiiioug the red willows,
which grow in profusion around tho
omskirts ut tiie heavier umber.

Gently, slrwly and softly,
In silence moves the train,

Tts Sunday morn   he's gone to be
