In reply to their inquiry regarding

al McKende Avenue C.P.Ry., tbe
council rce-oived the following letter
from  the  C.P.R.  solicitor:
Referring lo your loiter of the 28th
ui timo.. the cro-sing at McKenzie avenue has been used for some time to
give access over the company's pro
perty to our station, hotel, and also
to private buildings. I am instructed
however that wo cannot consent to a
tegular highway crossing being established. I may say, however, that the
ic arranging of our terminals at Revelatoke is now under consideration,
and I would like to have the application stand over until our plans nie
definitely decided upon. These may
obviate th;' necessity of a cros-ing at
McKoMie avenue.
The question of thc rearrangement
of our terminals will be settled very
shortly, and I will communicate with
you again.

Jasper B. Welchel, of the Bureau of
Statist,os, United States, has issued
ihe (ollowing summary of'lumber production in lho United Btates in 1911:
The ro| orled production of lumber
in the I'nited States during the calendar year 1911 by 28.107 mills, was
87,803,207,000 feet b.m., against 40,.
018,282,000 feet b-m. reported by 31,-
•..:tl nulls in 1910, 44,M)9,761,000 feet
reported by 48,112 mills in 1909, aud
B3.224,S69,000 Feet reported by si,-
231 mills iii 1908. The figures (or tbe
four years covered by iiii showing,
avo substantially comparable, with
lhe exception of tho-m for the year
1909. The information coviritiK this
year was collect-d by special agents
of tho Census Office In connection with
th- regular Quinquennial Census ot
Manufacturers, and hence covered, the
oretically every large pioJuc'mg establishment which was in operation
dining the whole or any part of ihat
y(-ar. Th3 data for 1911, 1910, anl
1108 were gathued by eorres; ondence,
anl wh'le including the cut of practically all of ths larger or commercial plants for these three yours do not
cover the operations of many of tin
neighborhood or custom mills. II
thould bc poln'ed out, furthermore,
that the totals for L9U and 1910 do
not include' the output of any mill
which reported H product of less than
.V\000 feet during these years. Returns for a' out i,r>Qt> mills of this
character were secure! in loth
and 1910, but omitted from tb'
laVo'is. The decreases in 1911
pared with 1910 of about 4,no.) mills,
and .1.000,ntiO.UOO (.eet b.m. of lumber,
were doubtless duo in part to a delay of about two month-- in mailing

A hustling real estate agent on Fifth
■venue. Now York, who advises his
patrons to buy unimproved property
and grow up with It has been making
■n experiment la domestic economy
along this same line, and at present
he Is dubious about Its result. Mr.
Lot, es be may be culled, lives ln a
suburban town where servants are at
a premium, and he advised his wife tu
try "raw material."
"This business of paying $20 a month
for a cook who wastes your coal,
Standi ln with your butcher and supplies her relatives with sugur and coffee at your expense ls nonsense," Baid
Mr, Lot. "Just go down to the Bargu
Oflice and get the Imported urtlclo. You
may find a diamond In the rough. IC
rou Uo, polish her, leach her your way,
and advance her wages. Gratitude wlll
I bind  her to you."
"That sounds well," snid Mra. Lot,
"but ynur Imported article Isn't likely
to understand Knglish, nntl she woul
know the meaning of gratitude."
"Wo will teach her English, my
dear," said Mr. Lot, "ami we can then
make sure that she picks up no slung."
Mr. Lot went down and picked her
out. She was aboul twenty-five years
old. The Interpreter told him that she
was a Dane, and that she was anxious
to tlo housework. She hud formerly
been employed behind a plough or
some such farm utensil.
Mrs. Lot put In a week's bard work
wllh Mary, showing her by signs how
her wt.rk was to he dona. Mary's
moon-like face never varied In expression.   She always looked blank.
"She has the unemotional placid
disposition which ls ro essential for
housework," said Lot proudly, when
his wife suggested that Mary was stupid. "A nervous houBewlfo makes double the work. Now If the roof fell In
It -would not Jar Mary."
"No; und she wouldn't begin to clean
np tht; muss until I bad tolJ her,"
6aid Mrs. Lot.
Lot give Mary ber first lesson In
English on Run-lay murniug. Aa she
appeared be said:
"Cood morning, Mary."
Mary looked at him blankly. Tty repeating that phrase all the forenoon be
taught Mary to say "Morn'n'." Then
I.ot worked all the afternoon teaching
Mary to say "Good evening," and Mary
Said.  'Even'n'."
"You see, my dear, that after Mary
has picked np a few words she will
tdvance rapidly. I am goiug to enjoy teaching her."
"Now,   my   dear." said    Lot to   his
wife on the following Sunday, "I am
going to Increase Mary's vocabulary."
When  Mary had  finished  her work
Lot went Into the kitchen, and, pointing to the stove, said:
"Stove. Mary, stove—stove—stove."
"Morn'n'," said Mary.
"Stove!      This  here,  stove,    Mary,
Stove.    Ray lt, stovo!"
Mary looked at Lot with as blank a
face us if she had been the doorkeeper at lodge meeting where    Lot was
trying the wrong password.
"Stove, stove, stove," said Lot
"Morn'a'a morn'n',   uorn'n',"    salt)
"No;  stove, Mury;  say stove."
Mary's face never chanced.
"Dammit!" snid Lot
"Dammit!" said Mary, promptly, and
Lot waa sorry.
"Stove, Mary; say stove."
"Dammit! morn'n'," replied Mary.
Mary came to Mrs.  Lot two nights
later and surprised her:
"Can go out, even'n'?"
"■When did you learn that, Mary?"
"Can go out, dammit?" asked Mary.
"Yes, go," said Mrs.  Lot, "and vou
necdu't come buck if you don't want
But Mary did eopie bark. When
callers asked for Mrs. Lot Mary would
reply sometimes 'Morn'n'." sometimes
"Even'n'," and again "Dlng-dlng, dammit" Mrs. Lot spent all of ber leisurs
time writing notes of apology to ber
friends, and telling (hem that Mary
was one of Mr. Lot's "rough diamonds." Mrs. McAllister, with whom
Mrs. Lot was on very fonr.il calling
terms, came to call on Weduesday nt-
ternoon, and Mrs. Lot, bearing soms
one talking downstairs, indiscreetly
Called out;
"Mary, ls that some one for me?"
"Morn'n," replied Mary. "Warm
bab-bee hot stuff," and before Mrs.
Lot could run downstairs Mrs. McAllister had slammed the door and left
t "Now where do you suppose she
picked up sucb slang?" Mrs. Lot asked
her husband.
"Did Mrs. McAllister have ber seal.
skin roat on?" asked Lot
"I faintly remember using some such
slang myself a week ngo wh.ii you
came ln with your sealskin roat oa.
Mary wns In the ball. It ls very oh-
Jertlonablo slang and my only en .a*
Is thnt It was taken from a negro
tong that was running In my head."
Tn'o days later another Dane who
looked very much like Mary enme to
call on her and asked for Mrs. Lot.
"Mary, she want more wage," she
"Who are .you?" asked Mrs. Lot
"Mary, my friend. She no talk English. 8he wrote me to come out sn'
tsk more wage for her. 8b* say shs
leave eef she don't get. She can't

"Rubber," said Msry, who had been
listening to her fluent friend.
"Your rsw material and rough diamond," said Mrs. I-ot to har husband,
