and the other through Strydenburg.
They are being followed up.
London, Dec. 27.���Tho following
despatch from Oeneral Kitehene. was.
received today from Pretoria under to
day's date: Yesterday two hundred
Boers attacked a small police post
near lloksbnrg. The police gallantly
drove them off before reinforcements

Boers attacked Utrecht at 2 .o'clock
this morning, and were driven off.

Cape Town, Dec. 27.���A small party
of Boers attacked Burghersdorp on
Dec. 24. They were repulsed after

BOERS' BEST GUN.
"Pom Pom" One%of   tho   Surprises of
South   African War.
New York, Dec. 27.���During the
Boer war a lot was heard about
"pom-poms." Many military men,
oven, do not know just what a pompom is. Captain /.alinski thus describe, tlie celebrated gun:
"Briefly, tho pom-pom is a one-
pounder automatic gun. It uses metallic catridges similar to those used
in small arms, but of a caliber of 1).
inches,throwing a shell weighing one
pound. The cartridges are pluoed In
a loopod belt und this is attached tu
the gun. By a simple operation one
of the cartridges is inserted in the
barrel and is fired by pulling tho trigger. After this thc force of reooil is
utilized to continue the firing automatically as long as belts ol cartridges are supplied.
"Attempts Were made to get this
gun into the Hritish service, but it
was objected to on thc ground that
the proj.ctile was unnecessarily large
to kill a man aud not large enough to
bo considered a piece of artillery. It
was stated that an entire battery of
these guns could be quickly put out
of action by a single piece of field
artillery, and that there was no place
for them in either service, lind it
been stated previous to the South African war that a British Held battery
of artillery could be put out of aotion
by a single 1-pounder in tbo bands of
half a dozen furmers, the statement
would have been regarded us rldlcu-
lons. There Is no question that a single piece of Hold artillory would stand
a very good chance of putting a
I-pounder Maxim automatic gun out
of action, on a perfectly level field
with no opver. But the Boers did not
tight, in that way. They did not come
out into the open to fight. With a
piece of ordinary field artillory tbe
charge is such that sufficient dust and
gas are blown into the air to make
the gun visibloj even when using
smokeless powder. It is difficult, also, to conoeal a piece of artillory,with
Its horses and other accessories.
Moreover, a piece of artillery recoils
and has to be, brought back into position and re-sighted after each discharge.
"With a pom-pom the recoil Is all
taken up inside of a stationary casing
and but little of it:, force tends to displace thc carriage. Tbe gun does not,
therefore, budge when it is firing.
The gunner takes deliberate aim,
guessing at the range. He fires
about five shots, which can be done
by holding the trigger In the pull position for about one second. As soon
Ks tbe projectiles  explode  he is able
to observe exactly where he is hitting,
and quickly rundjusts his sights.' After a few trials he is able to explode
the projectiles, on the exact spot required, and as the recoil does'not disturb the position of the gun,he can go
on firing as long as ho wishes.
"It is stated that the Boers seldom
fired more than twelve shots at a time
without waiting for the gas to blow
away. If they fired more, their position might be discovered by a oloUd ef
gas und dust, sufficient to make them
visible. It is now admitted that one
of the chief surprises of the South African war was the pom-pom,and British officers very soon found that it
was the most troublesome pieco of artillery with which they hud to contend."
STOPPED A   MUTINY.
Chinese Sailors Conceive a   Scheme of
Killing tho Whites.
Vancouver, B. C., Dec. 2(1.���It now
appears that an incipient mutiny was
nipped in the bud by the prompt action of Captain Tourney of the Royalist, when that vessel was in mid-
oceun. Thero wore ten white ollieers
inelnding the engineers on the big
iron ship (which is soon to bocome a
United States transport, and baa just
arrived from Japan )und twenty-eight
Chinese. The Chinese talked over thc
scheme of mutinying, killing all thc
whites and running the ship themselves. Their ringleader was Ah
l''ung. The officers snw Ah Fung talking excitedly in Chinese to tbo orew
and saw somo of thorn appnrently consent to a proposition he wus making,
while othurs did not appear to i grec
with Ah Fung's remarks. Suddenly
when a number of thc Chinese had
stood up, as if about to carry out some
contemplated action Ah Fung ran
out on tho forward deck and shouted
to the crew in Chinese pointing to thc
white men now ' collected in a group
trying to find out what waB going on.
At thnt moment a friendly Chinaman
slipped over to the white, men and
told them that Ah Fung had shouted.
"Now lot us kill all the Englishmen
and take possession of tne ship.'' Several Chinamen had moved forward but
before they could go very far they
were covered with revolvers and Ah
Fung was seized and placed in Irons,
being fed on bread aud water for tho
rest of the voyage���28 days���when he
was thrown into juil in Vancouver to
nwait bis trial.
HOCKEY AT WINNIPEG.
Something About the   Senior Victoria
Hockey Club. ' ���
Winnipeg,   Deo.     27,���The    senior
Victoria hockey team is practising
four evenings in the week. Carruthcrs,
the now cover point, who waB sick, is
again on tbo ice. He was great in
Toronto, but on Winnipeg ice, among
such men as Bain, GingraB, Flett und
Johnstone, is so fur, somewhat at sen,
und uncertuin on his feet. He Is, however, improving, but is fur from condition for effective work. Brown at
goal and Flett nt point are both in
fine condition. Flett's knee, which
bothered him in the mutches last winter, Ib all right again, and he is prepared to play a better game than last
winter. Armytage bus always been
a hnud-pninted stiok-hnndlor, and under him the forwards are playing a
much more.brainy game than last season. Of Bain and Gingras it is unnecessary to speak. They are the
same, only better, and under Armyt-
age's care are working like Trojans.
Charlie Johnstone is like a machine
of steel, and Armytage is teaching
him how to use bis head and stick
beautifully. "Array" himself never
had the physique of Johnstone, but
nature blessed him with brains, and
he knows how to do more with less
effort than uny other man on the ice.
He is also looking in very fair condition physically. Jack Marshall, the
Montrealer, is a beautiful player, but
overtrained, and has given out at the
stomach, ne may still, however,
catch a place on the forward line, especially if Carruthcrs does not pan out
at cover. Campbell has not played
yet, but will probably hold his place
oh the left. The cup contest is awakening more enthusiasm here than ever
before.

VICTORIA'S  HEALTH.
Dispatch From Windsor Says Her
Condition is   Not Improved.
Windsor,Eng., Dec. 20.���Queen Victoria's condition shows no improvement. Recently she wiib brought by
Princess Beatrice to the Irish Industries Exhibition. By express order
no one was permitted on the premises
while the Queen wub bel.ig wheeled
round except thu stull-hulders, all
Indies of title.
Hor Mujesty seemed to notice nothing, and when the Duchess of Aber-
corn welcomed her, Princess Beatrice
said:
"Her Majesty says she considers
this exhibition most Interesting."
But It was noted that tbo Queen's
lips did not even move. PrinceHs
Beatrice Is now virtually performing all the social duties of the sovereign. She docides absolutely ull the
Queen's pluns und movements,sees the
ministers,' jij-vlses the court circuln.
und tehdl out thc roynl communds for
visitors to Windsor. These latter
have almost ceaBed except where, for
oflicial reasons, they aro imperative.
Sir James Reid, the Queen's phys-
iclan.denies there is any cause for immediate ii hi nn, and it is considered
quite probable the Queen may linger
on in her present state for a considerable time. Tin. only question is
whether it njgy. after awhile, be necessary to nppolnt a regency.
EOYAL BANK
OF CANADA
What lt Means to Change the
Name of a Banking
Institution.
Merchants Bank of Halifax
Making Arrangements
for Alteration.
Albert Mellbr abd Florence Moore,
both of Pilot Bay, were raarrldd on
Tuesday last by Rev. Robert Frew at
the Manse,
It Is not a very simple thing for a
bank to change its name. The Merchant's Bank of Halifax will discard
the name it has borne since IStiO and
on Tuesday, January 2nd, next, will
open for business under the name of
the Royal Bank of Canada. To the
ordinary layman this seems to be u
simple matter, but to the staff of the
bank it is a gigantic undertaking
which makes end-of-the-monthB, and
half yearly and yearly statements and
balances mere child's play in comparison. A Miner man started out yesterday to see just what it meant to
the Bank of Halifax to become the
Royal Bank of Canada und be learned
some very interesting facts.
To start with a bank won't change
its name unless it has a very good reason aud unlesB it has considerable to
gain by so doing. That's where a
bank differs from lots of young ladies. In this caBe there were two reasons at least. There are other Merchants' Banks, the Merchants') Bank
of Camilla, and the Merchants' Bank
of P. & I., besides the Bank of Hull-
fax. The similarity in the names often led to confusion. Then tbe name
Merchant's Bank,of ll.ilifu.\ wus too
locnl to really indicate the national
character of the institution. A bank
that did business iu the frozen Yukon,
that hung out its sign under the shade
of Cuba's tropical trees, that oompet
ed for business with the big concerns
of New York City, that transacted
business with the miners in the
State of Washington, and tbe fishermen of Newfoundland, that had fourteen branches in Nova Scotia, nine iu
New Brunswick three in Quebec, one
in Ontario and eight in British Columbia, should boast a name with a
more general application than the
Halifax appondugo lent to its old one.
And so it was decided to change it.
The selection of the new title wns u
very happy one, for the Royal Bnuk of
Canada is a nume to conjure with.
But the bunking laws of Canada���
banking laws thnt are surpassed by
those of no other country in the world
���had to be considered. A special act
was prepared and it had to go
through all the stages of tho Dominion
House of Commons and tho Senate and
there permission was given for the
bank to adopt a new title, It being
shown that it bad outgrown its old
one which did very well thirty-one
years ago when the founders got to-
gether.in Halifax and formed the Institution which has now reached dimensions undreamed of then. At the
same time permission wus given to increase the authorized capital to 83,-
000,000, Just here it might bo said
that $2, .00,000 of this is paid up
and the roserve Ib 81,7110,000, which
gives the bank practically 8.1,700,000
cash to trade upon.
However costly and backward securing the legislation was it proved
to be just the beginning of tho work.
Fur the change to go into . effect
with the new century meant untold
labor for the officers and staff of the
bank. Every customer of ever}' one
of thc forty-one branches in the north
Pacilio or the tropical Atlantic and
all the way between, had to have a
new pass book, every account had to
be transferred, an entire new supply
of stationery distributed, nnd a hundred othor things that the layman
doesn't know about and wouldn't
understand if he did. But mure interesting than that branch of it���to
everyone outside of the staff���is the
matter of circulation. The entire
currency of the bank has to be
changed as all bills that go out after
the first of the year must bear the
new name. The Miner man's quest
led to an inspection���merely an Inspection���of the new bills yesterday.
All money is more or less beautilul,
the degree of beauty depending on the
denomination of the bill In question
and how much more of lt we have.
But, if one with as very limited experience In bundling  bills an a news-
pupcr man, can give an opinion, it
must be said that tho Royal Bunk's
new bills are decidedly beautiful and
taBty. The designs on the front and
back und the marginal coloring are
very pretty. Allegorical ligureB und
the Bank's coat of arms help to make
the bills attractive, but of course the
ohief attraction is the fi, 10, no, 100 or
whatever it may be that gives the bit
ot paper value. When the new sign is
hung out with tho dawning of the
2(lth Oentury and the bank opens for
business, these new bills will be the
only ones banded out. As the old ones
come In they will be kept and sent
in to the head office at Halifax or to
the Montreal branch and there confined to the flames. Gathering of tbe old
bills will go on for years and will
never be completed for in a circulation of 81,085,000, which tho bank
now has, quite a percentage is destroyed by fire, Hood and other causes.
The bank will be ahead this amount
but must always protect itself against
the return of these bills for they are
promissory notes and remain a debt
of the bank until paid. Then all the
checks drawn on the Merchant's Bank
of Halifax, and perhaps not presented
for a long time must be paid by the
Royal Bunk.
There is a great labor in preparing
the nearly 82,000,000 of new bills. The
law states that on. signature of Bome-
one authorized by the bank must be
ou each bill. Mr. George Kydd, the
Nelson manager,haB to convert worthless bits of paper into 81.10,000 worth
of five and ten dollar bills by affixing
his signature to them. This has been
his recreation for the past few days
and few millionaires have been making money as fast as he. The circulation is limited to the paid up capital
aud most bunks keep it well up to
the mark, for while the bills are out
the banks have tho use of the money
they represent. A man could present
any amount of the bills at the head
olliee and demand gold for them.
They are only legally redeemable ut
the head oflice but any branch would
give gold for them on demand.
With the changing of the nume the
bank inaugurates a system of pass
books new to the West. It is the
"Customer's Progressive Pass Book."
and so arranged that the balance is
carried out with every deposit or
withdrawal, so that the customer can
always see how he stands, and it acts
as a constant check between the bank
and the customer. The new checks of
the Royal Bank are printed on paper
specially prepared with tho bank's
coat of arms as a water-mark. It is a
safety paper that becomes white when
any erasure ia attempted to alter the
check.
The Royal Bank will commence tho
csntury in a veiv prosperous condition. It's last annual statement was
such as would give confidence to
the depositor and make glad the heart
of a shareholder.
'r.i.' liabilities of tne bank to the
public on the 31st of December, lHliu,
amounted to over 813,000.000; their
loans and discounts to over 810,aOO,-
000, and other accounts in proportion.
The statement for this yeeir will
shortly be made public and a compar
ison will undoubtedly Bbow that thc
wonderful work of progress of this
great institution has cuntinued unabated.
THE STANE AND BROOM.
Cold Weather Infuses Curlers With n
Desire to Oo at It.
Thore was a meeting of the executive commlttoo of the Nelson Curling
Club this morning and final arrangements were concluded with the Tramway Company for Ico at the rink during the wlntor. One rink will be

season promises to be a very prosperous one for the club and as there will
be two sheets of ice available tho contests aro expected to be much more
interesting than those of last year.
All that is necessary is cold weather
and it seems to have come to   stay.
Says tbe Victoria Colonist: William Burns, public school inBpector for

yet to be done, is the finishing of the
plastered walla, the laying of the upper portion of tho double floor, the
plaoing of the wainscoting, and tbe
putting on of the oil finish. A temporary steam heating plant has been
installed, and the walla are being
dried rapidly so thut the work can be
carried on quickly. The ground
floor will be completed and all ready
for occupation on Tuesday. As soon
as the upper lloor is ready Captain
Troup and his staff, wKh Captain
Gore and bis staff will occupy their

all trains will be despatched by tne C.
P. R. staff. The track connections
with the yard and the line of tho Spokane Falls i_ Noi them have already
been made, and now everything ib in
readiness for tlie coming of   Tuesday.

who havo fought the country's battles
so bravely in South Africa, lt will bo
known tonight when Dickson and
Switzer will reach Nelson.
The meeting at thc armory tonight
is a very important one and Lieut.
Beer requests that each member of
the company consider it his duty to
attend. At the same time it Ib desired
that ull the company's rifles still out
be returned to the armory. This
should have beon done long since.
The Nelson company will shortly

and disgusted if she should good-
naturedly accept the Davis amendment
and the Foraker amendments to say
nothing of further and worse changes
that may be made before the Senate's
revision of the treaty is sent to the
President. They arc conspiring to
kill the treaty, and the cunal with it.
That is the motive and intent of the
Senatorial representatives of the Panama Canal interest and of tho transcontinental railroad interests. The
minor factor in tho opposition is the
rampant 'Americanism' of a few bombastic ignoramuses,who take the same
view of the canal that Mr. Bryan takes
of tho free coinage of silver���that we
must go about it without the aid r
consent' of any other nation. They
want a canal, but they want it to be
walled by American forts nnd covered
by Amerieun cannon. But it is tho
enemies of the canal that are chiefly
responsible for the mischief wrought
upon the treaty. This, of course, is
well understood in oflicial circles in
England as it is by the general public
here. The matter thus becomes a National and purely domestic scandal,
about which tho English have little
or nothing to say."

To My .
ers
OUR  NEXT  COUNCIL.
It is now a matter of a few weeks
only���indeed, almost a matter of days,
when the ratepayers will be called upon to elect a new City Council. Do
they propose to allow themselves to
be taken by surprise, and to be called
to the duty in a state of unprepared-
neBS? Is the choice of the next batch
of Aldermen to be left to any cbanoe
nominations that may be made? The
question of the Mayoralty will prob-1
ably not cause a great deal of worry.
Either candidate will make nn excellent head of the Council and chief
municipal administrator; but the usefulness of a Mayor depends largely on
the support he receives, and an unfriendly majority, disposed to thwart
his will, can do more mischief ia an
hour than can be repaired in a month.
For two years the City has been favored with good Council-. The members
of them have not been exempt from
faults, but in intention and for the
most part in performance they have
been true to the interests they were
eleted to serve. If not always wise,
they have at least been honest. That,
after all, is the main thing. Nelson
wants honest men in charge of its
affairs. It may seem an ungracious
thing to aay In this season of good
will and charity to all, but it is a
disturbing fact nevertheless that there
have been evidences of a disposition
to engage in municipal looting, and
strong, honest men are required to
guard against the growth and development of bo noxious a plant.
Up to the present time only one citizen of Nelson haB announoed a desire
to serve the town as one of its Aldermen. We have heard nothing but
good1 of him, and if elected he would
no doubt give satisfaction. Bnt why
seek new men each year? It requires
experience in municipal affairs, as in
others, to attain to the highest degree
of usefulness. Old servants who have
given satisfaction should be prevailed
upon if possible to retain their trusts.
The members of the present Council
have done well; with their experience
they would do better another year,
and it is therefore all the more desirable to hold fast to them. We sug
gest that they be re-elected in a body,
and this without any disparagement
of the new candidate, Mr. Patterson,
who, we are sure, would gladly step
aside in favor of BO simple a method
of choosing our next Council.
Some one has calculated that Rossland and the Slocan will together contribute |7O,S0O under the new mineral
tax, and adds that thc sum ia not a
large oue considering the value of the
mines, lt is a lurge ono, however it
muy be regarded, but especially large
and vexatious when it is considered
how fow the regular producing mines
are. But it is not so much the extent
of the tax as the idea of it that is
the most mischievous in its results. It
is as natural to man to shun taxation
as it is for sparks to liy upward. At
the very time when it is most desirable to encourage the employment of
capital to develop the great mineral
resources of the Province, this tax is
shoved into -the fuces of those who
are expected to supply it. It was short
sighted policy, besides being unjust
in its operation, und tbe Government
responsible for it, whatever they may
think of themselves.are not to be con
gratulated on their achievement.
"The Tribune wishes the editor of
The Miner a Merry ChristmaB," flays
our morning contemporary. The edi
tor of The Miner wishes The Tribune
and all associated with it a happy

same time he will experience the

at The Tribune and its editor whenever be thinks they are going   wrong,

THE SENATE AND THE TREATY.
That the better cIbbs of American
newspapers rcNent the action of the
Senate in mutilating the Hay-Pauncefote treaty will be gathered from the
following pungent leader which np-
pearod a few days ago in The New
York Times, ono of tbe broadest, fair
est, and ablest of the entire United
States press:
���'It Is fortunate that nobody on
either side of thc Atlantic is in the
dark as to the motives of thc Senatorial enemies of the Hay-Puuneefots
treaty. If the English believed that
the mangling of the treaty was
prompted by old-fashioned American
hostility for moro than half a century
in the school <books of this Nation,
they might take offence, and they
would be only human if they retaliated by making all sorts of trouble for
us In relation to the eanal. But no
American Is excited and evory Englishman is calm, for it is plain that
the love of that onoc populnr pastime
known as twlBtlng the British lion'b
tail enterB only in the smallest degree
if at all as a factor in the not very
pleasant exhibition which the Senate
la now making of itself betore the
world. The British Oovernment will
continue to he friendly, whatever the
Senate may do with the treaty, for
where no offence is meant none will
be taken.
"Great Britain may, Indeed, bo
foreed to reject the . amended treaty,
but that Is precisely what the amend-

WOMEN DRUGGISTS.
MANY LEARN THE TRADE, BUT FEW
CONTINUE IN ITS PRACTICE.
The Public Prefer* Hen Behlad tha
Prescription Desk���However, Thera
Are Several Sucoeaaful 'Women
pharmacists In This Country.
"The most practical woman pharmacist
la the country today la an old body in a
down east town who fixes up tho snlves
and seamen's remedies that are peddled
about down on tho wharfs and back
street landings where the fishing smacks
come in," said a man to whose desk
comes worldwide knowledge of druggists'
and apothecaries' Interests. "Thot woman ni'YiT looked Into a book of pharmacy In her life, uses only experience and
eld wives' testimony to compound by, but
her prescriptions are in constant demand
and are considered absolute cures for the
most aggravated fish bites and cuts that
s sea and river craftsman is heir to.
There Isn't any woman medicine mlxci
anywhere that does the amount of business slio does. I'm not joking. Here are
the facts:
"There were five women In my class at
college when I graduated In pharmacy
seventeen years ago.   There have been
I more than that number in every class the
} college has graduated since, and a half
f'dozen other colleges and schools of phur-
I Bincy hare been turning out women pharmacists regularly every year all this time,
; yet you can trace but very f< w of them
In the profession today.   Thi. it a lead-
: llig supply house for chemists' and druggists' materials.   Our books show pretty
1 well all that goes on In the country In
[ this line, and the salesmen who go mil
from here keep track of the small fish
I and little fellows, commercially considered, In the out of the way places and back
J country towns.   At the utmost there are
��� not at this moment a half doien women
[In the legitimate drug business In this
[country. Women do well as doctors, and
[the trained sunt ranks are overcrowded,
[but they fight shy of practical pharmacy
���as a profession. They go into lt enthusiastically,   study   haill   while  at college,
alio medals and class honors for profi-
clriie-y, graduate with great credit and
hen���just do nothing apparently or next
[to nothing with the knowledge gained.
���You can walk all over this town, for In-
[itnnce��� go into nil the main streets and
side  streets  and  suburban  streets���and
yen won't find a single drug store in
irhich 1 woman is serving except In tbe
cut'Hcity of cashier.
"Two listers kept an apothecary ahop
a far east Harlem district In New
fYork for awhile, but thoy quit, either
rent Into something else or got married.
iThere was another shop handed down to
la   woman   pharmacist   at   her   father's
���death, and she ran it for two years with
I fair success.    Now her husband's name
111 over the door.   Ont woman It assist-
lant manager ot the drug department ia
la department store.   She sees the drum-
linei., orders goods, keeps track of stock
land looks after the salesgirls under her,
|but every bit of this could b�� done without taking a degree in pharmacy.    Tht
ncilicin.s and tonic* and the pills and
.lusters,  lotions, creams and ointments
' r-e/i t  she  deals  la  all  come sealed  and
i ready for sale Just as packnges of made
I ap petticoats' Or lemon lounges or spool
[thread would come.    It takes only bull-
I aett knowledge and method to do what
the Is doing..' Another woman pharma-
| cist it cm ploy ed  In  a chemlstt' supply
house to tuperlntond girls who seal and
��� ���topper,  bcrlbboa, pack and tit up the
��� perfumes and dentists' goods and also
(make attractive tbe household remedies,
f p��l_ relievers, Infants' sirups and glassed
tnd canned powders and toilet accessories.    She has no chance at the Impor-
h taut compounding part of the work.
"Now, the northwest and middle states
|bon_t of some women druggists," he add-
"Tho star woman dealer In the busi-
ess It located In one ot tbe prominent
Wiiil'llngt ot a big Minnesota town, and,
iron her lettert, the questions she askt
'.0 new goods and methods, I take her
he wide awake and thriving.    Sht It
1 years old, unmarried and all for business, the drummers report.   Another well
Htobllthed woman druggist has a good
Itrnde in a Connecticut town, and there's
leee In Illinois.   A young woman keeps a
[tnall drag shop in her own cottage at a
ii-imcr resort.   Sht shuts up each winter, hut doe* good business In summer,
[especially In teething' drops and mosqul-
> lotion.
"Thousand, of girlt and young women
1 are employed steadily In the wholesale
drug and pattnt medicine houtea all over
��� the cauntry. There art whole factories
I lull of them, some tltnated In country
iMttlemtnta where rent la cheap for the
[plant and Its working people, and some In
lerowded oity quarters, but all of these
I women are at the merely mechanical end
let things, doing the outside adornment
|worli for which their small fingers are
{specially fit. They wo.k at long board
���l>lcs with little flame lights In front of
Bthem, convenient for tht sealing and
���pasting. They have delicate tools to
[work with, and are more or lest dexter-
I out  and   Indispensable.   Borne  of  them
��� Work for fifteen or twenty years at tht
[trade, beginning when mere children in
I thort frocks, but they hart a fixed limit
I tor wages, little chance of advancement,
I ind have no more idea of the character
lead composition of the fluids and solids
I they are sealing and  packing than the
girlt who work In the silk factory next
door or who sew on cloaks or make boa-
I aet frames. i
"People don't take to tht idea of a wo-
I Dan druggist.   There's no accounting for
It. but they don't.   The public at large
likes to have a mah put Op Its prescriptions, and would take exception at hav-
I 'ar to ring up a woman druggist at night
[or go to her for the hundred and one
[things out side ef the business that a drug
[���lore stands sponsor for.   On tht surface
I It looks as If pharmacy were a business
.admirably   suited   to   feminine  strength
and adaptability, just the proportioning
ef water and physics, the right rending of
the Latin symbols and directions and tht
j keeping ef things orderly and shipshape,
���t any housekeeper must de et��cry doy.
| But the public prefers a maa for thit
fui pose, and apparently would rather
*vt women ministers, women real ettate
egentt aid women ttockbrokers than
womtn druggists."���Chicago later Ocean.

BUREAU OF   PROVINCIAL INFORMATION,
In order that the Government may
be in possession of definite information with which to supply those seeking investments in this Provinoe, I
am instructed to invite particulars
from those who have properties for
sale, and who may feel disposed to
forward such particulars to this otlice
for the purpose In question.
In view of the proposed early re-organisation of tho Agent Ucnerul'B
Oflice In London, England, the desirability of having on file a list of
farms and other proportieB for salo,
with full and accurate dotalls, is obvious. Properties subrnitted may in-
oludu farms and farm landB, industrial or commercial concerns, timber
limits, water powers, or othor enterprises affording opportunities for legitimate investment.
It is not proposed to recommend
properties to intending investors, but
to afford the fullest access to the classified lists and all avuilable information connected therewith, aud to place
enquirers in communication with the
owners.
The fullest particulars aro desired
not only of the properties themselves,
but of the localities in which they
are situated, and the conditions
affecting them. For this purpose
printed schedules will, upon application, be forwarded to those desirous
of making sales.

thing during- an afternoon of shopping. It
can be had at any time at The Palm, on
Ward Street. Ladies who are down town
shopping will appreciate this, and also such
a light luncheon as we can serve at the same
time.
In the Confectionery line there is everything
you want.
