lliirnits*. a citizen who represented the
Law and Order society ol this city.
Mure than a dozen witnesses were
subpoenaed, most of them sporting
writers on l'hiladelphla and New
York newspupers. About a half dozen
of the witnesses were examined and
the magistrate considered that sufficient evidence was elicited to warrant
him in holding the prisoners. The
men promised that there would be no
knock out, no violence and no infraction of the state laws regarding prize
lighting and that they wonld engage
mily in a sparring contest. Tbis
promise was accepted by the magistrate nud lhe hail was fixed at 15,000
ior three men. He said if the) 'ivtd
up to the promise tbey will be dis-
charged on their appearance in court
tomorrow morning.
There was a tiresome wait of 40
minutes. The fighters insisted on
seeing their money before entering
the ring. It was 11.40 when Sharkey
mado his appearance. He was followed a moment later by Maher
llntli men were greeted with tremed-
ous applause. Heated olose to the ring
were Cnampion ,1a Jies J. Jeffries and

mons. Little time was wasted in formalities. The men quickly donned
the gloves an 1 at 11:45 the light began.

and Mike Campbell were behind
First Round���The men sparred for a
few seconds, Sharkey being the flrst
to lead. Mailer rushed to a clinch.
It was evident the men intended to
obey the mandates of the court for
they merely tapped each other. There
were loud cries of "take 'em oil" and
many of the spectators started to leave
the building. There was not a blow
in the first round hard enough to jar
lho teeth of a featherweight. When
the muu took their corners, tho hall
rang with hisses and orios "Take 'em
oft," and "fake."
Hound Two���After fiddling for a
moment Maher led a light left on
���Sharkey's stomach and they clinched.
Sharkey slapped Maher on the face
with the open glove and the two men
wrestl d over the ring. Sharkey led
his right and Mabor ducked,inUi a left
light upper-cut. The men oontinued
tlieir love tapping and the crowd
hissed. Sharkey lauded a light left
and Maher contered with a good stiff
right over the heart. Sharkey landed
his open glove on Mailer's face, hut
the blow waB not hard enogh to shake
Peter's head. The men wero dancing
about the ring when the gong
Hound Three���Sharkey lead for the
wind but fell short and Peter slapped
him on the face, Peter landed a light
right ou Sharkey's rids and received a
gentle tap on the back of the neok,
as he ducked. Maher lead fur the head
and the men clinched and wrestletd,
Sharkey tapped Maher on the head
and got a light blow or the stomach
in return. In the middle ol the round
Referee Boocap walked tu the side of
the ring aud said, "Oentlemen, I waa
asked lo referee a contest; thn is no
contest." The men took to their corners and Sharkey attempted to make a
speech but the crowd became bo boisterous that his words were lost among
the uat calls and hisses.

Some Important Matters to
Come before the Gom-
Postal Telegraph. Georgian
Bay Ganal and Insol-
*      vency.
W. A. Galliher, M.P., in discussing
the probability of a short session of
the House of Commons, which has
been announced tu meet on February
l2tli, said that it was tbelikely intention ot the government to hasten
work through so that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier could get to London to attend the coronation ceremonies.
Asked as to tlie more important subjects of legislation likely to come up
for action, Mr. Galliher said that
there were few of great importance
tbat were sure to be acted upon, but
if the canal proposition wae brought
before the house it was not likely that
the session would be a veiy short one.
At last session, he said, the scheme
to construct a canal from the head of
navigation on the Ottawa river to
Georgian Bay by way of Lake Nippis-
sing and French river was bn light np
in the usual way. The undertaking
would be one of considerable magnitude as it involves an expenditure of
between 840.0000,000 and $50,000,000.
Tbe benefits to follow its construction
would in turn also be very large. The
chief obstacle to anything more being
done at last session was the conflicting interests ot different paits of the
country, thr* members from Toronto
and western Ontario wanting tne connection to be made by way of Lake
Ontario. This canal if constructed
would make it possible for ocean going vessels to load at Port Arthur,
Fort William, Sault Ste. Marie or any
American lal-e. port and take its cargo
to any port in the world without
again oreaking bulk and would effect
a great saving in freight rates. The
advantage from tbe canal would
accrue not only to Manitoba and the
Northwest bnt to all the north western states and would make Montreal
their ocean seaport. It would also
make what would be practically an
ocean port lor the proposed Canadian
Northern railway which alieady haB a
railway line from Winnipeg to tbe
lakes. In this way competition Inrates
would [be furnished to the wheat
glowing districts ot Manitoba, and
the freight rates to all western Canadian points would probably be lowered. The matter was not gone into
thoroughly last session, merely touched
upon, and for his part he had not
reached a conclusive opinion about it
but the scheme bad many things to
recommend it to him.
Insolvency legislation has been discussed for several sessions and there
seemed to be an impression tbat something would be done at tbis session.
The old country manufacturers had
been urging legislation upon these
lines for some time, their chief complaint being tbat under the assignment laws for the various provinces,
when an assignment was made they
usually found that there were pre
ferred creditors, frequently the banks,
and tbey had been unable to get
anything out of the estates. What
seemed to be desired was tbe establish
ment of an Insolvency court, the appointment of official liquidators and
the granting cf discharges to insolvents found to be entitled to such. As
tbe law stands a man wbo once be
comes Insolvent is practically unable
ever again to engage in business in
his own name. Another object sougbts
was to do away with preferences as
much as possible which In many instances had be' n close to the margin
of being fraudulent. If this bill were
brought up ,t wonld cause a great
deal of discussion bb there was consid
trablc opposition to it.
Another important bill tbat may
come up was one to establish the postal telcgrapb system in Canada. Mr
Mulook , the pestmastor-genera), had
expressed himself iu favor of it and
thu question was whether he ba 1 his
plans lar enough matured to submit
them to parliament. The system in
Great Eritain had given much satis-
fncti"ti and he believed tbe step would
be welcomed in Canada. Sir Sandford
Vleming, whose opinion on such mat
ters always carried weight, had contributed an article to The Empire
I Review, in which he looked upon the
estf'.sn'shment of the postal cable and
the postal telegraph inland system as
a necessity to the various British
peoples thiough out tho world It is,
he eays,imperatively demanded by the
new conditions which have arisen
through the evolution of the empire,it I
is necessary lo promote effectively its
unification. The Ottawa Board of
Trade and the general council of the
Chambers of Commerce of Australia
had declared in favor of it.
These, Mr. Galliher said, were all
the matters of first importance that
he could think of likely to come before the house and if none of theae
were brought up in form to bo acted
upon, he could see no reason why the
session should be a long one,

Victoria, Jan. 17.���The candidature

Capt. Fleet, senior officer on the
Esquimalt station, suggests that the
overdue Condor, is no doubt sailing to
Honolulu having used up her coal,
owing to the extra labor entailed on
her engines by the severe storm iu
which she would be caught on the
night of Jansuary 3rd. Having used
up ber coal, and being obliged to
make Bail, her progress would be
slower, more especially as at tbis season of thc year Honolulu is not tbe
zene of the trade winds. This, he
thinks, will detain the sloop of wsr

how heavy the storm. They sometimes founder but they are very rarely

A Terrible Catastrophe In the
State  of  Guerrero.
Three  Hundred  Perish and
Many Injured In an
' Mexico City, Jan. 17.���One of the
most terrible oatastropbes ever recorded in the state of Guerrsero is reported tn have occurred late yesterday
afternoon when an extremely violent
earthquake, which was felt at Cliil-
paningo, causing a great loss of life
and injuring many persons. Details
from the stricken district are very
meigre.but scattering reports received
heie indicate that probably 300 persons were killed and ��s many more
It is known that the sate capital, a
parish church, many business bouses
and residences are in ruins and there
is much suffering as a result, of tbe
awful seismic disturbance. One of the
edidces that suffered most was the
federal telegraph office which explains
the scarcity of news that has reached
this oity. The telegraph lines and
apparatus were badly damaged, but
tbo employees, all of whom were injured, quickly proceeded to erect an
improvised telegraph office on the
outskirts of the city. The number of
deaths was greater in the parish
church than in any single place as the
crowd of worshippers were gatbered
there for the afternoon service. Tho
solid m.-siiiiry walled ruof toppled
down on thc worshippers. The war
department has ordered the troops in
the neighborhood to co-operate in the
work of rescue. Until this work is
complete it will be impossible to
learn the number of victims. It is believed that this is tbe most destructive seismic phenumena that has oc-
currd in Mexicu. The greater part of
the people of Chilpaningo are now
camping uut under trees around the
town,whicb is five days' journey from
the national hospital.
The earthquake shocks wore felt in
many other cities and towns. In
Mexico City the earthquake took place
at {,17 yesterday alterouon and was uf
such violence as to shake the most
substantial buildings. The first
movement was very sharp. It was
followed by a easier oscillatory move-
.uet, north-northeast to sl ith southwest. The duration was 55 seconds.
The damagein the city was only,slight
The state of Guerrero has always
been thc focus of seismic disturbances.
Reports received here tonight state the
shock was very severe at Chalapa. No
casualties are so far reported from
there. Iu point of duration the quake
inC'bilpacingo was leas prolonged than
that in Mexico City having lasted 50
seconds against 55 seconds at the
Tho earthquake was also heavy at
Iguadlda, in tbe state of Guerrero,
destroying the pariah church, many
buildings, in the uity and neighborhood. Among the latter was tbe
Bugar mill of Gen. Frisbie, an American. Tho mill had jnst been com
pletcd and fitted up with American
inachim ry at a cost of $300,000. The
property less is immense throughout
tne state.

Through the death of Chief Justice
McColl, which occurred at Victoria on
Thursday night, the supreme bench
has been deprived of an able jurist,
the province of a good and upright
citizen and^his intimaies of a stead-
fast and loyal friend. As a lawyer he
was a successful practictioner and he
eioelled in court practice, beiDg a fine
pleader, while as a cross-examiner
he had the laculty of bringing out
tbat whion was important and subordinating the merely trivial. Owing to
this faculty he could bring out the
points most needed in a case and at
the same time pierce lhe weak points
in the armor of those to whom ho was
opposed. As justice and chief justice
of the Supreme court it seemed to require but little effort on his part to
secure complete and comprehensive
grasp of the facts of cases brought before bim. Besides he had a comprehensive knowledge of the principles of
law and eqnity. As chief jubtice of
the Supreme court be compared favorably with his predecessors.
Socially, he cared but little for
sooiety, in the generally aoccpted
meaning of that institution, as he
had a personal dislike to crowds and
large functions.
This was shown in a marked manner when he refused to participate in
tbe reception tendered tlic fluke and
Duchess of Cornwall and York during
their visit to Victoria. He preferred
the society in a quiet way of a few
intimate friends rather than that of
tbe many at some of thc larger social
functions. Hu was latterly some
what convivial in bis habits.
The demise of Mr. Justice McColl is
a distinct loss to the province, as he
was man of uncompromising honesty
and more than ordinmy learning. He
was an ornament to both the bar and
the bench and tbe community will
sincerely mourn that he Iibh departed

Belleville, Ont., the sou of Presby
tcrian clergyman. Ho praetsed law
in Manitoba and came to British
Columbia in 1S84 forming the firm of
Coubould and McColl. When Vancouver beoame a pla-e of importance an
office was opened there and the legal
partnership of Corbould,McColl, Wilson
and Campbell was formed, and in

For a short time in 1890 he piactised
in Kossiand in partnership with C. R
Hamilton. lt was while practising
t'uere he was appointed to the Supreme
court bench as puisne judge, on
October 13th sucecding Mr. Justice
Crease who retired. Chief Justice
Davie died on March 7th, 18811 and on
Aug. 'Jilrd of that year he was laised
to the chief iusticoshin.
He was the third chief justice that
Kritish Columbia has had since the
union with Cnnada. Sir Matthew
llaillie Begliic had been appointed by
royal warrant, "Judge of Our Colony
of British Columbia" which then
meant the Mainland. In 1870 an act
was passed constituting the Supreme
court of British Columbia and It was
enacted that upon the retirement of or
death of either the judge of the Mainland or of thc Island the suoccssor
should bo thc chief justice. The same
year Judge Needham, of Vancouver
island, retired to take an appointment
in Trinidad, and Sir Mntthew Begbie
suoceeded to thc olllee. which he held
until his death in 1894, Hon. Theo-
doio Ilavie was appointed chief justice
in that yoar and upon is death in
1898 Mr. Juntioe McColl succeeded.
It is interesting to note that the
Ant chief justice in any part of Ihe
territory now comprised In Kritish

who was appointed in 18.10 nt Victoria

Tbe Nelson School board has adopted an order compelling the children to
be vaccinated before they will be
allowed to attend the schools. ThiB is
a wise measure as vaccination is the
only safeguard that can be adopted
against the disease. There is the
usual complaint from anti-vaccina*
tionists against the order which Is as
unreasonable as it is foolish. Where
proper precautions are taken by cow
petent physicians there is absolutely
no danger In vaccination. It is only
where impure vacoine virus is used or
where the operation is performed
without tbe proper precautions being
taken in the way of sterilizing tbe
spot vaccinated and the instruments
used that dangerous complications
The British Columbia Bevlew of
London, Eng,, chronicles the fact tbat
a shipment of mica nad lately been
received there from near Revelstoke
in this province. The quality, adds
the Review, is said ts be unusually
good and the deposit is to be worked
on a large scale. Mica deposits, where
the product is of the better kind, are
quite valuable. There is a deposit in
Cariboo which is said to be tbe largest
known in the world. Sheets of unusual sl7.e,almost as clear as glass,can
be obtained from it. The inat'eesi-
bility of the deposit, however.prevents
it from being utilized. When Cariboo
is given railway facilities the deposit
will be worked and another important
resource added to those of the
The long-discussed subject of Great
Britain's coal resources is to be again
submitted to investigation by a royal
commission, says Bradstreets. The
specific questions to be covered by the
inquiry comprise, among others, the
rate of possible exhaustion of British
coal fields, the effect of tbe export of
coal on the home supply, the possibility of a reduction in its cost by
cheaper transportation, and whether
tho coal-mining industry of Great
Britain under exqisting conditions is
maintaining its power to compete
with foreign coal fields. It is of interest to recall that the output of .coal
in Great Britain during the period
Hint lias elapsed since the report of
lhe royal commission in 1871,haa been
considerably in excess of that assumed
when the report as made owing to the
largo increase of exports.
It is difficult to make anything more
than a rather elastio estimate as to the
acutal amount of coal iu the fields of
tho United Kingdom, but it will not
be amiss to recall that tbe royal commission above mentioned estimated
thc amount of coal in exposed coal
fields above a depth of 4,000 feet at
III). .'IK.:; 10,387 tons, and the quantity
above that depth, under the Permian
and other formations in the central
and northern counties of England, at
50,248,000,000 tons, a total of 14(1,454,-
240,387 tons of of workable coal.

Noble Five and Last Chance Quarrel
Over a Tunnel.
A Slocan oase that will oorae up for
trial in the Supreme court shortly is
that of the Noble Five Consolidated
Mining company vs. the Last Chance
Mining company. It will involve
the'qnestion of the rights of parties
working a mine to use the underground workings of another mine and
the decision will, no doubt, touch on
subsequent use of such workings after
operations have been once suspended.
A temporary injunction had beon
granted expiring on January 21st and
Do douot applications will be made to
nave it made permanent.
The plaintiffs claim an injunction
to restrain the defendants, their servants, agents and workmen from entering upon, working, mining or removing ore from the World's Fair
mineral claim, lot 404, gronp I, Kootenny distriot, or from other adjoining
property of thc plaintiff,or from under
the surface thereof, respectively, and
for damages. The plaintiffs allege
that the defendants have a tunnel
known as No. 3, whiab, by April 1
last, they had worked to the northeast
end line of the Last Chf nee claim,
adjoining the plaintiff's cla im,known
as the World's Fair. About the sam e
date the plaintiffs, with the consent
of the defendants, commenoed from
the defendant's said tunnel to work
on the World's Fair claim and prosecuted such work and ran a tunnel
from said md of No. 3 tnnnel 100 feet
into the World's Fair claim; and
mined therefrom and left there a
quantity of ore. About October 5th
last tlie plaintiffs stopped work and
left in tbe workings of the World's
Fair claim about 20 tons of ore in
sacks, valued at $2,000. At the time
the plaintiffs stopped said work, tbey
erected at the beginning of their tunnel and at the end of the defendant's
tunnel No. 3, a wooden door, wnich
shut up their workings , and which
door was fastened by a look. On December 30th the secretary of the
plaintiff company interviewed the
supcrintt'ndei.t of the defendent oompany and applied for permission to go
through defendant's tunnel No. 3 to
the plaintiffs'workings in the World's
Fair claim, but was refused. The
superintendent of the defendant company at that interviewjndmittcd that
the defendant's men had broken
through the door and had removed all
the ore sacked and were working the
ground in the plaintiff's tunnel in tbe
World's Fair claim, where the plaintiff's left off and were extracting ore
therefrom and had been tor about a
The terms of the temporary order
restrained the defendants from entering the tunnel under the surface of
the plaintiffs' mineral olaim, known
as the World's Fair, constructed from
the end of defendants' No. 3 tunnel io
th Last Chance olaim, and from workings, mining, removing or interfering
with any ore or substance under the
surfaco of the World's Fair claim, and
from entering upon any part of the
said claim.

A letter received from a member of
the Third Canadian contingent announces that Corporal Dunn, of Nelson, who was in charge of those who
left this oity, had met with a serious
accident at Halifax. While at drill
there he was kioked by a vicious horse
in tho baok and for two days his life
was despaired of. At last accounts he
was recovering. Dunn had been to
South Africa with the Strathconas.
A man who had been with the same
contingent offers an explanation of
how so many accidents bad happened
to the men at Halifax. The horses,
in preparation for thc journey aboard
ship, are shod with only plates on
their front feet which are oi no use in
preventing them from slipping. In
exoroise snd drill tbe horses, whioh
have been well fed, are put at full
speed and on the hard ground are unable to keep their feet. It is apparent
too that this contingent bas good
horses as Col. Dent, remount offlcor,
has complained that the officers who
bought the animals had paid such
high prices Miut be could not get any
more st what he considered them
worth, and no doubt they, therefore,
had taken only the best.

Grape Nuts Set Them Right
It is better to have a food epidemic
in a family than an epidemic of sickness. A young lady out at Ilibbing,
Minn, tells shout the way Grape-Nuts
won her family. Hhu says, "When
recovering from typhoid fever my doctor ordered Gri-pe-Nuts Breakfast
Food. I gained four pounds the first
week, and, ��n the package wns kept
on the table lor me, the whole family
started to eat the new food.
We soon noticed a difference in my
younger brother's face, whioh had
heen pale and bloodless, and who hnd
been suffering from chronic inflammation of the   Itofflaah,    ln a short time
he   began to eat so heartily   that  ne
all remarked about it,and before long
he got so ne oould eat anything without the least had effect.
We often eat (lr.i|n--Niits dry Is we

Archibald Dick, Inspector of mines
for East Kootenay. passed through
Nelson yesterday returning from the
coast where he was in consultation
with the government and with the
inspector of coal mines on Vancouver
island ns to the working of the new
coal mining regulations enacted at
last session of the legislature. These
regulations provide for Ihe examination of miners who work In coal
mines. Two examiners are appointed
by the miners.two hy the tnlne owners
and one by the provincial government,
constituting a boari of five examiners.
These examinations have recently been
held and tbe act went into force on
January 16th. Special examinations
arc provided for those employed iu
those parts of the mine requiring
higher skilled men. Mr. Dick mains

Some   .Statistics   of   Those Living   in
the United States,
Ottawa, Jan.    17.���The   lH.it
increase of English speaking is 16 per
cent and of French SO per cent.
The movement has been chiefly
toward the border states. Thus New
England and the eleven border states
of New York. Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana,
Idaho and Washington contain 1,047,-
860 of Canadian exiles; 20,818 are in
California. Of 30S, 107 French-Canadians who crossed the border, 297,887
are in New England. The New England states contain 511,075 cf all
wanderers lrom Canada.
Canada's statistican, Geo. Johnston,
figures out that judged by the ai-tual
numbers, the general movement of
population from Canada to the United
States is loss than it was in the decade between i8S0 and 181)0. From
the special census taken bv Massachusetts it appears that a largor proportion of Canadian emigration is directed thither than was formerly the
case. There has been a massing of
forces as it were upon Massachusetts,
but a weakening of the contingent
directed toward other parts.

SVIore Home Knitters Wanted
To Work at Their Homes
Under the Oirectlon of A
To Fill Large Contracts   Good Wages
Easily Earned.
Maohlno weigh. 17 pounds. It la mora wonderful than ��� sowing maohlne, Juet
aa durable, and higher epaed.
We want a few more workers In this
locality, at onoe, and in order to seoure
your oo-operatlon without the delay of
correspondence, we herewith explain
our full plan In this advertisement.
The work is simple, and the Maohlne
is easily operated, and with the Guide,
requires no teaoher. If you wish to
Join our staff of Workers let us hear
promptly with the Contraot, order form
mlttanoe, as a guarantee, and we will
maohlne and outfit to begin work at onoe
We wish to secure the Bervlcea of families to do knitting
for us ln their homes. Our method Is the same aa adopted
In England. We are the Introducers of this plan and the
largest   knitting   concern in Canada.
After long experience, we have been able to produce an
Automatlo Machine by which all kinds of seamless knitting Is now done by our Family Machine, thereby enabling
anyone of ordinary Intelligence to quickly learn to do the
work from the Instruction Guide. All we require is that
vou use the machine according to directions. The Maclilno
being made expressly for this purpose, and the operation
so   simple,   lt  cannot possibly make a mistake in Its work.
The grtat demand now Is for Bicycle Stockings, Woodmen's Socks, and Motormen's Mittens, and as we are unable to supply the demand, have taken this method of advertising  for  more help. ���
The large ssxport trade to the North-west Territories.
British Columbia, and the British Colonies, furnishes an unlimited demand for our goods, and, with the combined cooperation of the many families we are employing, together
with the large amount of knitting we are able to turn out,
by which we save rents, Insurance, interest on capital, etc.,
enables us to undersell any manufacturers of this class of
goods, and we have sale for all the knitting we can have
turned out.
The price we pay for finished bicycle stockings Is tlO.OO
per hundred, or at the rate of 10c per pair; woodmen's
socks, Sc, and motormen's mittens, 12c a pair. All other
work   In   proportion   to size.
The machine can be operated by any one of a family,
and at our prices any energetic family should be able to
sustain themselves comfortably, and in time be a. source of
Independent   comfort.
Our plan Is to send out each machine to beginners with
partially knitted, and remaining In  the
_  sock or stocklm
machine ready to
jo   continued,  and  also enough  yarn   to
knit one pair of sample socks or stockings and a slmpli
and complete Instruction Guide, showing how the work Is
to be done. When the samples have been finished ami
returned to us satisfactory, we send a quantity of yarn,
which you knit and return likewise when finished. We
prepay ��� charges on all work one way, and our workers pay
return charges. The work, as we have stated, Is simple and
rapidly done, the machine having a capacity of ten thousand stitches a minute. We have many persons now ln our
employ who can knit from twenty-five to thirty pairs of
socks or stockings a day, and where the time of a family
Is devoted to the work, you can readily Bee that H5.00 or
$20.00 per week can be easily earned.
We furnish our workers all the materials, yarn, etc.,
free, and everything that Is necessary for the work. Wc
are furnishing the machines only for the exclusive use of
those desiring to take employment with us, who must, In
order to become a member, send us this Contract Order
Form, properly signed by them, and at least one good reference, and remittance accordingly, to give us the necessary
assurance that the quantities of valuable yarn we may send
from time to time will not be wasted or misappropriated.
Onr Interests are mutual, and this confidence must bo established If we are to succeed. We guarantee fair dealing
and prompt payment for work, so do not ask us to deviate
from our terms, as we cannot make a distinction with one
nnd not another: besides, we are doing an extensive busings,  and must be governed by business principles.
The manufactured price of the machine 1b $16, and positively will not be sold to any othors than those who will
acree to do knitting for us.
If at any time after you commence, and have done an
amount of work equal to the purchase price, and wish to
discontinue, we will take back machine and refund the
amount paid for same, after deducting cost of our expense only.
There is a Tjixsre Demand by the Trado for this class
of wnrk. Our workers can depend upon It year after year.
nnd If you engage with us (whole or spare time) wo will
keen you supplied with work as long aa you do It satisfactorily for us and return It promptly. We entrust our workers with largo quantities of valuable yarn,  and as  we give
references as to our honesty and integrity, we must ask
you to do the same. In order that we may know with whom
wc are dealing.
We have, In as brief a manner as possible, endeavored
to show vou what our work is, and we simply say as to the
machine, It Is Just what we represent lt to bo, nnd will positively do everything we claim for It, or refund the money.
kadi machine, securely packed with an outfit, Is set up for
work, thoroughly tested, and a sock or stocking partially
Knitted before boxing and shipping. Should you decide to
engage with us, It will be necessary to send us Cash Contract Order Form, properly signed by you, and at least ono
good reference, together with the remittance, accordingly,
upon receipt of which we will forward machlno and outfit
ready  to commence. Respectfully yours,

If you wish to examine the machine and see tho material before undertaking the work, you can do so by
sending 13.00 as a guarantee of good faith, and to defrav
expense orf shipping, and we will send evervthlng to your
nearest express company, leaving a balance of twelve
dollars to pay the agent and 26 cents for the return charges
on the money to. us.
We are so frequently and  unnecessarily asked If one can
learn to knit without a teacher.     Wo sav, Yes; it reiiutres
no teacher; any person   of   ordinary    Intelligence   who   can
read the Instruction Guide can learn to knit at once.
