At this meeting it was untiniiiioiisly
resolved that the club be culled tho
Golden Curling Club. Mr. AV. McNeish, on behalf of tlio Rink Co., submitted the plans of the proposed rink,
for the approval of the committee, and
also made an offer on bulialf of the
sydluate to the effect that thoy were
prepared to supply everything necessary in connection with the rink, to
ninke and keep the iee iu good order,
to pny the affiliation fee to the Manitoba Branch of the R.C.C.C., for
which a charge of 810 would be made
to each member of the club for the
season, the curlers having the use of
the rink live nights per week. It was
proposed to throw tin rink open every
Saturday for skating. A lengthy discussion followed as to the advisability
of accepting this proposal and dually
au amendment to the proposal was
moved by H. 0. Parson, seconded by
C. A. Warren that the Golden Curling
Club accept the offer of the syndicate
to erect a rink according to the plan
submitted and furnish the ice and
necessary lights uud fires on every
night of the week except Saturday nnd
iSundav and to pav the syndicate a
rent to be agreed upon for the use of

SATURDAY, OCT. 20, 1894.
Lost   Ijlffllt-
The following poem taken from the
Winni*ieg Saturday Night, was written by Mr. Owen A. Sinily during his
recent trip through the Rocky Mountains :
Last night I dreamed I saw the moon
Behind a snow-tipped  peak descend,
And waking, said, "I'll follow soon,
For there she waits for me-my friend.
My friend - the moon.
And   fleet-winged   fancy,   sweet   and
Whirled ull my being into flight
And caught and carried me along
To where she sank iu silvery light,
My friend���the moon.
O'er crags and over torrent-bed,
O'er   dreary   plain   uud   mountain
A wild and useless course I sped,
For I hud lost in my mad haste
My friend -the moon.
Jolly and vouth go hand in hand.
Twus not the moon that I had seeu,
But some pale star uiy fancy fanned
Into a semblance ot its Queen,
My friend- lhe moon.
Folly and youth !   How well I knew
The moon was miles and miles away;
And yet I hoped and longed for you
And for your gloom-dispelling ray,
My friend-the moon.
I had a lamp to light my way,
But shattered it long days ago,
For as the starlight is to day,
So was the lamp compared with you,
My Irieud���the moon.
The moon has gone ; Ihe lamp no more
Burns, beacon-like, across my days.
Darkness seems darker than before
I knew the guidance of your ravs,
My friend--the ir.oou.
Yet when I close my eyes, that burn
With useless louging, useless pain,
The sweet lost yesternights return,
Pule grow the stars. You only reign,
My friend-the moon.
are with you." Flossie (ten minutes
later) -"I enn't go to sleep,  inamma.
I guess one of God's little angels is
biting me."
The Witty Retort.
A well-known British politician
said recently : A curious thing about
political oratory and wit is the sidelight I got upon one aspect ol it years
ago. One morning a quaint-looking
old chap came into my cilice and suid
that he had read in the newspapers
that I was to speak at a mass meeting
the following night, und wanted to
know if it was true. When I told
him that it was so he revealed to me
a new method of gaining oratorical
distinction. He volunteered to interrupt my speech at stated intervals
with a remark that should be agreed
upon between us. To this iuterj ction
I was to retort wittily, and thus acquire a reputation as a witty speaker.
My first impression was that he was
amusing himself at tny expense, Inn. he
repeated to me several things I could
reply to wittily, and wanted ine to pay
him roundly for helping me to a reputation. But I told him I was indifferent to that kind of fame, and he went
away disappointed. Not very long
after thai I was seated on a stage listening to a speaker, when who should
rise iu the audience but my quaint
visitor, and bawl out one of the very
things he wanted me to pay him for
interrupting me with. The orator
answered him with ihe same retort
that I was offered the privilege of making, and the audience exploded into
laughter, and I heartily joined iu, but
my amusement hud not the sume
foundation, I fancy, as that of the
rest of the laughers. And during the
rest of the evening the old fellow made
au occasional interruption fromdiffereiit
parts of the house, and the retorts were
of the same manufactured sort. I am
a trirle sceptical now ou the subject of
witty retorts. - Exchange.

���'he World's .luttipltiic Record llrokoii
The latest mail from Lieland brings
details ol the greatest broad jump accomplished since 1885. The hero of
the occasion is John M. Moouey, a
member of Xuvier Athletic Association,
New York, and the scene of his triumph over existing figures was Mit-
chelstown. Ireland, where a big tour'
naiuent look place on September uth
Moouey had previously announced his
intention of making a supreme effort
to break the record at the meeting, if
weather and other conditions were
favorable. He succeeded so well that,
his jump measured 2.'1 feet 8 inches.
The best record performance up to then
was 23 feet (ij inches, by C. B. Fry of
Oxford, England, and C. S. Beber of
Detroit, Both these celebrities jumped
from a wooden joice set in the turf nt
the takeoff end of the jump, but
Moouey is reported to have jumped
from the natural sod. - Nelson Tribune.

to leave for England on the folic wing

for further news of his friend's condition. But the telegraph was too dilatory a means of communication lo
satisfy his impatient longing to hear
how it fared with his friend. "Sitting down at the table, I determined to
try whether or not I could, by the nid

news from London. I first asked the
everfaithful friend, who some three
years ago passed from our sight,
whether she could tell me how the patient was. My hand wrote without a

proof of this is that about seven o'clock
