"Vos, it is gold!" sno snid, her'fnce
flushing, hor eyes glowing.
Hut Sutcombe's face grow pnlc,
nnd, laying the quartz down, he drow
"I—I congratulate yuu, Miss
Wood," he suid—not "Dccima," ns
he had »f late slipped into culling
her. "If—if there is muoh of this, you
—vou must In' very rich!"
"II" she said. "All. yes, T suppose
sn; but—but it. wns not for mysolf
—" She stopped, for his face had
grown hot, nnd his eyos flushed nlmost resentfully. Vivienno laid hor
hand  upon his nrm imploringly.
"Wait, wait till shi" has finished,
Sutcombc," sho whispered.
Nina looked from ono to tho othor
nnd. comprehending, colored almost
as hotly  na Sutcombe.
"No, no!" she said. "I—I was not
going to offer you these. Indeed thoy
are not mine"—she paused—"only
half of it is mine. Llut thero is plenty
more; my father said the island was
an Eldorado; ami tho gold is yours,
any one's who comes and likes to dig
for it. Indeed, one need not dig very
much, for it lies in tho bods of the
streams, and in streaks in the

"And—and no one knows of this
but you!" he exclaimed at last.
"No ono but, I—and one other, the
—tbo person to whom half of the gold
He wiped bis brow, for to the
least mercenary oik-men the presence
of a vast quantity of gold, with prospective possession, is rather a discomposing fact, one not to bo contemplated without a thrill.
"And  he?"   ho  nsked,   breathlessly.
"Where is he?   Why is he not here?"
The color left her face and her lids
"I do not know," she said in a
low voico. "He—he may be deadl"
"He did not cscapo with you?"
asked Sutcombe.
She mado a movement of her hand,
as if the question, tho subject, puin-
od her.
"No—I left him bore. I—ah, do not
nsk me any more!"
Vivienne leaned forward and touched hor hand. "No, no, dear, wc will
not! Oh, do you think wo do not
understand! To be wrecked here on
this lonely place! To have suffered,
as you must have suffered—no, not
a word more shull bo spoken, dear
Sutcombe leaned against the log
wall of the hut, his arms folded, his
eyes fixed, not on the gold, but on
the floor.
"And it was for us, for us that
you have worn yourself to a shadow
with anxiety and hope deferred," he
said. "That we might bave this
"Why not?" she broke in. "Would
you not have done the same for nie,
for any friend? And whnt true
friends you have been to me! And
wbat is the use of it If it cannot be
put to sucb good service?"
"And you never thought of yourself?" he said, very quietly. "Vou
were not rich—"
"Very poor, indeed," she said
with a luugh.
"And you nover thought of finding
this island, this Eldorado, for your
own benefit?"
"No," sho said simply; "what
should I have done with it? What is
tho uso of money when—" She paused. "Besides I was lucky so soon. I
thought so much of my work, of my
play, that if the gold had been lying
on Ilampstead Heath instead of on a
mysterious islund in the wide ocean,
I don't think I should have troubled
to take the train for it." She sighed, then, with a winning smile, she
went up to him and touched his
sleove. "Lord Sutcombe, you won't
let scruples interfere, you won't—
make difficulties'."
He longed to take the hand that
touched him so pleadingly, to draw
her outside and say, "I will tako the
gold you offer mo so generously if
you will bo still more generous nnd
give me thut which I value beyond
all the gold in the world—yourself!"
But ho knew, though he could not
have told how ho knew, that this
was of all moments tlio worst for
such a question; of all places, this
tho least  favorable.
"No," he said, drawing in a long
breath. "I'm not so churlish—so foolish. I am still too amazed—at present, it all seems like a story out of
an adventure book—to quite realize
it; but—I accept your generous offer.
If the gold is hero for tho finding-
well, Vivicnne and you shall be
"Ves!" said Vivicnne with womanly cunning. "I accept unreservedly.
I have hated thu thought of being
poor! Why, think of it! We should
have had to sell the Ariel at Melbourne, have been obliged to go in
for farming, or something of that
kind, or settled in some stuffy town
on the Continent. And now we can
keep tbo door obi yacht, and we can
all go back to England—and you
can buy back Soutberwood, Sutcombe—I told you how it "assed
from us, Doclina? And I can get
thoso pearls I wnnted, and—oh,
what will you do (With all your
money, you millionairess?" sho broke
off, drawing Nina to her and l—EKing
Nina tried to smile. What, indeed?
The usolessness of the gold mocked
her at that moment ns lt hnd mocked hor the dny it hnd been found.
There wns only ono thing sho wanted, and it is tho one thing no money
can buy—forgetfnlness! But she
strove to dispel the black shadow
from her mind.
"Oh, I'll found a National Theatre
—for tho tperfonnunco of artistic
dramas—by 'Herbert Wood!' " shs
said. "But now let us bo practical,
as I'oily would sny, This is a dangerous secret, Lord. Sutcombe. You
know now why "I thought It better
that wo should In—!1 alone?''   •
Ho nodded. 	
"Let me think!" He took out his
pipe. "May I? Thanks! Yes, the
the men mustn't hind here, at any
rato; they must not come further into tho island thun necessary. We
want water—"
"There is plenty near the bench!"
said Nina, stilling a sigh: beck came
tno times when She waiK'ea rroin tiro
stream with the can in her bund, and
Vane coming to meet her to take it
from her.
"t.uite so. They shall get what
they want, and Barnes shall take the
Ariel on a cruise, leaving us here.
There are enough  provisions—"
And there are fish and duck, and
turtles in plenty," said poor Nina,
trying to smile.
Vivienne clapped her hands and
nodded gleefully, though all the time
she was watching Nina from the corner of her gentle eyes. "Why, it will
lie like a picnic, a real picnic! Even
if there had not beon all this wonderful gold, it would havo been
worth all the trouble—ah, but not
your anxiety, dear!—just to see so
Ijoautiful and romantic a pluco. It is
like a Fairy Isle!"
Nina turned away swiftly; the name
was like a stab.
They talked over Sutcombe's plan,
and presently ho went down to tho
beach, signalled the boat und sent it
off for rugs, bedding anil provisions;
nnd when these were brought he went
aboard, told Barnes they - intended
picnicking on the island, and ordered him to take tho Ariel on n cruise
and pick them up in a week's time.
When he came back ho found that
the two women had already started
the picnic. Nina's hut hud been
transformed into quite n snug and
comfortable bower with the aid of
the rugs and other things brought
from the yacht, and Nina, Vivienne
told him, was down at the old
"saloon" getting tea.

"Thoie! It is boiling at last. Tbo

Method  Employed at  Minnesota Experiment  Station.
The following method of caring for
calves is ln use at the Minnesota experiment station dairy bam and seems to
give the most satisfactory results,
writes P. D. S. in Northwestern Agriculturist. After tbe calf has run with
bis mother two or three days and has
been put in good order by her colostrum
milk he should be taken away and shut
up in a very small pen, a partition off
from tbe lurge calf pen, so that be cannot suck tbe other calves' ears, which
Is a very objectlouable practice to allow In a bunch of calves.
Now, right at tbls stage comes a very
critical time tor the calf. White scours
only too often attack bim at tbls period,
aud often, too, ho Is laid low by calf
cholera. Now is the time to give a preventive. Take about a pint bottle of
milk at tbe temperature of OS degrees
P., no cooler, and put lu It a teaspoonful of any of tbe good creosote disinfectant compounds for sale in the market. This, of course, is a germicide and
will kill tbo genus of the cholera iu the
itomnch of tba culf. I know this to be
i good remedy uud If given will often
save a calf's life.
The next thing the calf must do Is to
learn to drink out of a pall.   Tills often
takes lime aud patience.   Be free with
both, ns a little dairy calf three days
old is pretty tender and must be bundled carefully.   First of all, you must
have that whole milk at the temperature of the mother's body, about 08 degrees.   The cause of the most of the
scours In calves Is feeding cool milk.
Dip the finger In tbe milk and then let
tbe calf suck It off once or twice, moan- j
while drawing his  bond   in  this  way j
closer and closer to the pail until his ;
muzzle is right In tbe milk.   After he I
once gets bis mouth Into it be will very
—on learn to drink.   lie should be fed
on whole milk for about a mouth and
then for two or three weeks on half
and half and then on skim milk.
At the station we find It a very good
practice to put blood meal and bone
meal In the skim milk. Others use flnx-
.eed nio.il with very good success.
After the calf Is a month old perhnps
he will eat a little bay, and then you
can turn hlin out lu tbe big pen with
the rest of the calves. Now, as those
young animals are very susceptible to
parasites and diseases and ns such
pests thrive woll in moist, dirty places,
we therefore see thut It is very important that we keep the calves and pen
clean by tlie liberal use of fork and
brush and occasional application of a
disinfectant. Above all things, tlie
drinking pails must be kept scrupulously clean. It takes a little time, of
course, but It pays, because lt kills disease. Don't Be afraid to use plenty of
beddlhg to keep tlie little calves off
the dump floor.
I They  Should Be Freely I—ed  In the
Early Spring-.
It Is believed by vegetarians that a
purely vegetable diet makes people
amiable, good natured, generous, developing tbe finer characteristics of the
user, and that excessive meat eaters
become the opposite.
Whether this be true or not, fresh
vegetables are appreciated ln the early
spring. Tbey are an essential change
from the heavy winter viauds and
should form the greater part of our
dally menus.
Almost every vegetable has Its particular use In the human system, and
nature provides sufficient variety to
keep us iu tine bodily condition If we
will live In accordance with her laws
and not abuse her gifts.
Tomatoes act directly on the liver.
Onions, garlic, leets, shallots, chives,
stimulate the circulation, Increase the
saliva and gastric juices and promote
Pears, beans and lentils, called also
legumes, are among the most nutritious of vegetables, containing as much
carbon as wheat and more muscle
forming food.
Lettuce and celery both have a good
effect upon the nerves. The former
Is soothing and the latter a tonic.
The free use of pieplant, or rheu-
barb, Is considered a "spring tonic"
and will prevent the use of medicine
which Is often apparently necessary to
tone up the system. Being such a common and inexpensive plant, it ls really
not appreciated by the majority of'
housewives. When so fortunate as to
have It growing In the garden It Is
generally used In small amounts for
pies early In the season and the remainder allowed to go to waste, when
It might be utilized in a variety of appetizing dishes all the year around,
as It can be preserved for winter use
equally as well as the more expensive
fruit—Philadelphia Press.
Milk Is capable of absorbing almost
any odor with which it comes iu con-
tuct, and dining the process of milking
a large amount of air is Incorporated
Into It, driven by tbe streams of milk
from tbe udder, says Kimball's Dairy
Farmer. If (his uir is pure. It will aid
ln cooling uud aerating the milk; If Impure, it will tulut the milk with whatever disagreeable odor and undesirable
bacteria It contains. No otber article
of human food will absorb more of the
surrounding atmosphere thnu milk.
How many of us would llko to have
our entire breakfast left In an ordinary cow burn for twenty to thirty minutes, as ls often doue with milk? Remembering tbat milk Is a human food
and that it absorbs injurious odors so
quickly, let us be very careful how we
handle It
A Stall For Earb Cow.
There nre two ways of couslderlng
economy—one for tbe cow und tbe other for the owner, says Hoard's Dairyman. Iu tbe end tbe mau wbo ls economical for the cow's Bake will find be
bas best served bis owu economy. The
objection that most farmers make to
the plan of a stall for each cow Is thut
it takes more room. Y'es, but It Increases tbe efficiency of the cow, and
barn room Is cheaper than cows.
Teal the Com.
If you test your cows one day each
week duriug tbe milking period and on
the same day of tbe week or will test
tbem, say, for a week wben they have
been in milk for a month and take
this for tho average of nine weeks,
four weeks before tbe week test and
four after, you will find out enough
about your cows to Induce you to make
more full and complete tests hereafter.
—Wallace Farmer.
The Dairy Ball.
When a farmer thinks of buying a
dairy bull to Improve the quality of his
future cows he should look to the quality of the bull, not to the cheapness of
price. The character and reliability
of the breeder go a great way in such
a transaction. He should try to buy
a "future" of good quality that will
run on for generations and that will
help Increase the good effects of every
future sire that may be used.—Hol-
stein-Frleslan Register.

Like Venue and For Like Cnuse, It Ia
Not. a Dead World.
Mercury ls a body devoid, practically lf not absolutely, of air, of water
and of vegetation. Consequently It Is
Incapable of supporting auy of those
higher organisms which we know as
living beings. Its surface ls a vast
desert It Is rough rather than smooth.
Whether this roughness be due to
mountains proper or to craters we are
too far away from lt to be able
yet to say. The latter Ib the more
probable. Over the greater part of Its
surface change either diurnal or seasonal Is unknown. Three-eighths of its
surface ls steeped ln perpetual glare,
three-eighths shrouded In perpetual
gloom, while the remaining quarter
slowly turns between the two. The
planet Itself, as a world, ls dead.
Interesting as Mercury thus proves
to be, the Interest as regards the planet Itself is of a rather corpselike character. Less deterrent perhaps Is tho
Interest it possesses as a part of the
life history of the solar system, for
tidal friction, the closing act tn the
cosmic drama, has brought lt where It
ls. The machine bas run dowu.
Whether it ever supported life upon Its
surface or not, tbe power to do so has
now forever passed away. Like Veuus
and for like cause, It ls now a dead
world. And lt was the flrst thus to
reach the end of Its evolutionary career, earlier to do so than Venus, Inasmuch ns tidal action was very much
greater upon It than on Venus and consequently produced Its effect more
quickly. Mercury has long been dead.
How long, measured by centuries, we
cannot say, but practically for a very
long time. Venus must have become
so comparatively recently. Both, however, now have finished their course
and have in a most literal sense entered Into their rest

War on Trailing Skirt..
A pretty war of skirts is being fought
out in a small German town, where the
League Agalust the Trailing Skirt has
been formed, with the support of the
mayor, who has even gone so far as to
regulate In an edict the length of the
offending garment. It is this last piece
of municipal tyranny thnt has aroused
tbe long suffering woman of fashion,
and Bho has formed a counter Union
of tlie Liberty of Dress. So far lt
seems that the league Is ln the ascendant, for It has just dined tbe mayor triumphantly, while the union,

Phonograph,, in Court.
The use of a phonograph as a witness occurred for the first time on a
recent trial In the United States court
at Boston. In tbls connection It Is recalled tbat photographs had to fight
their way to the witness stand. The
right to put telephone conversations in
evidence has been upheld lu some
enses. If the use of the phonograph as
a witness becomes general It will also
become a universal memorandum.
Contracts of all sorts, from a merger
deal to a promise of marriage, can be
recorded as Infallibly as on paper or
parchment. In breach of promise
cases especially a phonograph would
be of great value.—St LouIb Post-Dispatch.

Not to Know Thla Island Ii Nol to
Know  Greece.
There are some lands which have always laid a spell upon the mind, upon
the imagination, upou the heart. Greece,
above all other countries, has entranced
the mind. Tbe imagination hns ever
loved the east—Egypt, the Indies, forgotten Asia, the nlmost as mysterious
Asia of today. For most of us the
home land ls the country of the heart;
for many, It may be, lt ls Palestine,
where was lighted the fire at which
the hearts of Incalculable millions are
still warmed. Others are content to
say with Emerson ln the fine essay on
"Heroism," "That country is the fairest
which ls inhabited by the noblest
minds." But, above all other lands,
there ls one which has at once Impressed tho mind, the Imagination and the
heart of western peoples. When a famous poet declared that on his heart
would be found engraved the word
Italy the words voiced the emotion of
a multitude In every country of Europe and In the great northern continent oversea.
To see Sicily, tbe old "Garden of the
Sun," as the poets have loved to call It,
ls not to see Italy, though there may be
a measure of truth ln Goethe's remark
that not to know Sicily Is not to know
Italy. In a sense one might more truly say of Sicily that not to know lt Is
not to know Greece. In another sense,
however, we have In tbls most beautiful of Islands tbe Intensification of
Italy. Whatever ls most Italian Is In
evidence here, though It Is Italian of
the south and not of the north. What
a gulf divides them is known only to
those familiar with the whole peninsula.—William Sharp In Century.
"Bulla" Not Irish.
Those who are not Irishmen sometimes trespass on Irish property. A
French cure, preaching about sudden
death, said, "Thus It Is with us—we go
to bed well and get up stone dead!"
An old French lawyer writing of an
estate he had just bought added, "There
ls n chapel upon It ln which my wifo
and I wish to be burled, lf God spares
our lives."
A merchant who died suddenly left
In his bureau a letter to one of his correspondents which he had not sealed.
His clerk, seeing lt necessary to send

to a noble of equally superfine strain,
had, through her husband's death in
financial difficulties, to marry her five
children to "abominable persons" of
high character, but with the blight of
trade or Industry In their blood. Her
last years were made mournful to her
by this pitiful descent, and just before
her grandiose last utterance, looking
with a bitter smile at her children and
grandchildren In tears round her deathbed, she broke silence In tho following
terrible reflection: "We havo here,"
counting on her fingers, "representatives of carriage making, wholesale
grocery, confectionery, coal mining and

it has lain in a hole ln the ground for
some years and has got a certain appearance it becomes a delicacy. To

Tbe toe ls wrapped iu a cloth soaked
In soap and water for twenty-four
hours beforehand, and then the powdered alum ls poured Into tbe space
between the nail and its bed, using
cotton to keep the alum In place and
repeating the application dally. The

application being repeated for about
five days, a cure usually results.

a friend who kept telling blm stories.
As they passed through the streets ot
a continental town, which In those

A Well-Known J. P. Is Cured of Kidney  Trouble of Long  Standing  by
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Banda,   Ont.,  May  21—(Special.)—
There is no one more widely known
and highly respected ln this section
of the country than Wm. Bell, Esq.,
J. P., and the statement he makes below   concerning   his   cure by Dodd's
Kidney Pills bears weight and carries
conviction with it.
"For more than a year I was a sufferer from kidney trouble," Mr. Bell
says. "Always in pain and at times
tlie agony would become unendurable
and I was practically unable to attend
to any of my duties, f doctore;! with
several local physicians and tried
every meuns to get cured, but. without
success. At last I was Induced to
give Dodd's Kidney Pills a trial. I have
the greatest pleasure in stating thai
they drove away tho pains entirely
and restored me to my old timo health
and strength. I nm sure I owe this
entirely to Dodd's Kidney Pills."

Mummy at Auction.
.London.—The muiamified bo_ly of a
miner who lost his life 2,000 years
ago will shortly be offered for sale at
Stevens' auction rooms, ln King St.,
Oovent Garden.
The miner was a subject of the
Incas, and death overtook him while
he was at. work in what Is now the
Antono copper mine, Sierra Atanualpa,
Antofagasta, Chili. The body was
mummified by the action of the copper
With the exception of a small hole
in the head, the mummy is perfect,
and everything—feet, hands and face
—is beautifully preserved. But the
bo.ly is green nearly all oyer from the
action of the copper oxide;
A rug nnd two hammers made of
stones, tied with leather straps into
a bent stick made up as a double
handle, were found on the ground by
the miner's side. It was with these
stone hammers that the miners—who
never learned the secret of working
iron—extruded the copper, wbicli was
valued by them even more than gold.
There is supposed to be only one
other mummy of this kind in existence, it was recently ■ bought for
$5,U00 by the Central Park museum,
New York.

Chairs Used by Mary Queen of Scots
Owned by a Winnipeg Man.
Two of the original set of nine
chairs composing the bedroom set of
Mary Queen pf Scots during her eighteen years of imprisonment in Fother-
fngay castle, are in Winnipeg.
The relics have been in the possession
of an English family' for generations,
have followed a member of the family
across to Canada, and have gone, like
other family heirlooms, to pay the
debts accumulated by the young man.
The chairs are now in the possession
of R. A. Douglas and are stored In
the W. G. Douglas feed store, Princess
and James streets.
On May 13, 15G8, Mary Queen of
Scots was taken to Fotheringuy castle
charged with conspiring against the
life of Elizabeth of England. During
her long imprisonment in the castle
awaiting the trial which finally decreed that she should die, all of the
ancient furniture of the luxurious
prison remained Intact. Some time
after the death of Mary Queen of
Scots a raid was made on the castle
by the ancestors of the family who
havo held possession of the furniture
and many otlier relics for so muny
years, and many of the paintings, silverware and plate were rilled from
the castle. The bedroom set was among the goods stolen from the castle.
Seven of the pieces are now held by
the Countess of Warwick In England
and the two in Winnipeg are the only
known relics of the famous prison of
the Scotch queen known to be this
Side of the Atlantic.
Anthony Babulngton was accused
of being Implicated In the plot with
Mary. One of the chairs bears a "T.
B." in deep carved letters. Whether
this be the initial of the famous Tony
Babbington is not known. Another
chair bears "E.R." which is thought
by Mr Douglas to mean Elizabeth Reglna.
As antique relics the chairs are of
high value. They are insured for
$1,000, and It was only recently, that
the Countess of Wai wick offered a lab-.
lous price for tbem so that she could
complete her set. It seems, however,
tbat it was only when Dame Fortune
played false with the unfortunate
member of the English family that he
was willing to part with any of the
articles that had been held for so
many years by his family. The chairs
are blackened by age. Parts of them
are crumbling awuy to wormwood,
and they are only held together by
the most careful handling. A mere
glance at the relics of the beautiful
queen seems to recall to the
mind the tragedy that marks one of
the saddest pages of English history.
The age blackened wood, tue warping hand carved figures seem to bring
a waft, of tragedy and of prison gloom,
as if they too had played a small part
in the life of the fair prisoner. ,
The efficacy of Bickle's Antl-Con-
sumptlve Syrup in curing coughs aud
colds and arresting inllammation of
the lungs, can be establisheil by hundreds of testimonials from all sorts
and conditions of men. It Is a standard remedy in these ailments and all
affections of the throat and lungs. It
is highly recommended by medicine
vendors, becnuse they know and appreciate its value as a curative.

And because it is a necessity, its

Lord Strathcona on Western Canada.
In the special Canadian number of
the London Financier and Bullionist
ls published an interesting interview
with Lord Strathcona, in the course
of which the High Commissioner says:
"I am personally acquainted—Intlm-
ately acquainted—with the Western
States of the Republic, as well ns with
the Northwest of Canada. I can say
from personal knowledge that the
capacity of the latter for growing
cereais and other crops is greater
than that of the country farther south
It is a well-known fact that, other
conditions being equal, the further
north cereals are grown, providing
they have time to mature before the
winter, the better the quality. They
grow fasterN_wlng to the longer period
of sunshine they get in the higher
latitude. This is thoroughly understood and admitted. Jrprty years ago
tire northwest of Canada—what was
then called Prince Rupert's Land—
produced no foodstuffs. The few
whites who were then in the employ
of the Hudson's -Bay Company imported everything they required in
the way of food. Hour, meat, bis-
cuns, butter, and even poultry and
eggs were brought in from Eastern
Canada and the United States. And
that Same country—now known as
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Asslnibola
and Alberta—is now producing over
100,000,000 bushels a year of cereals.
Witli regard to Immigration I_ord
Strathcona said "Here in England if
a man is of that stamp that when he
gets the opportunity to work he does
not—if he won't or cannot work—at
least he may have relations or friends
or someone who .may taite an interest
in him of some sort, but in Canada
such a man would have no chance.
There, if a man won't work whon he
has the opportunity, he goes down—it
is all over with bim.Now to induce
people of that sort to go would be
cruelty. There Is room In the Dominion of Canada for millions of workers, hut not for one Idler."

It was impossible to go quietly about

the city where thero had been no disturbances. A dozen times a day you
wero peremptorily ordered to stop,

search by more or less drunken soldiers.
This, of course, did not trouble the insurgents, as there were not enough
soldiers, to search at every street corner, and those who carried arms found
it possible, almost without exception,
to avoid the patrols. But if you were
in a hurry to go anywhere you were
sure to be held up two or three times.

Mr. Chipperfield of Home road, has
a grievance against the South Vancouver Council, claiming to have beeu most
unfairly treated. Mr Chipperfield an
old mau and a ratepayer, was givon the
work to "brush" tho road at 20c per
chaiu; the distance measuring 18 chaius.
The Councillor who gave him the work
stating it meant to cut the brush on
both sides of the road. A member of
last year's Conuc.il told Mr. Chipperfield
the usual former rato had beeu SOc per
chain for each side of tbe road. When
he mentioned this to the Councillor
before mentioned, lt lingered blm. Mr.
Chipperfield declined to do the work at
the price offered, which would have
amounted to $3.00 nnd he snys it waa
aftorwards done by day labor aDd he
understands cost the Municipality $18;
at 20c per chain for ench side of tho
lM.id, tlie cost would have been $7.20, a
saving of $10 80 to the ratepayers.
Truly this liuiuiciooriug is a wonder
and if each Councillor who has $1,000 to
expend equals tbe one who awarded this
c mtract tho present Munclpnl Council
