At the second annual meeting of the New Westminster Trust and Safe Deposit Company, Ltd., it
was decided to extend the operations of the company
to Vancouver and Chilliwack, where safe deposit
boxes will be installed and loan business carried on.
The company will also act its trustees and executors
of estates.
The report of business for the past year was
most satisfactory to the shareholders, and it was accompanied by the declaration of a handsome dividend.
This company which is entirely composed of New
Westminster men and has officials of the standing
and calibre that inspire the investor with faith, gives
promise of becoming one of the most important financial organizations in the province. The shareholders have unlimited confidence in it, and as a demonstration of this, those present last evening took up a
large portion of the unsubscribed stock. What remains will be offered to the public at par value for a
few days, after which it will be sold at a premium.
A full board of directors was elected for the ensuing year as follows : President, T. J. Trapp ; Vice-
president, T. S, Annandale ; Managing Director, P.
J. Hart; Secretary-Treas., Edward Chapman ; L. A.
Lewis, W. J. Mathers, H. Ryall.
Several applications for loans were presented
and passed upon.

Wonderful Tests of Skill
For al who love io .-.��������� featn of .skill
and nerve���and who does not?���motorcar sports, which are so popular on the
Continent, and which promises soon to
take rank amongsl th, favorite sporting figures in our own country, offer
exceptional opportunities of pleasure.
A v.ry difficult feat, which none but
tlv.; most experl drivers may hope to
accomplish, is that of balancing a car
on a plat for,,, arranged to swing like
n see-saw on a plvol at iis centre.
The car is driven al a fair speed up
Iho Bide of the platform which slopes
to the ground, and the object of the
driver is to bring It to a fall-stop at
iln poinl al which the car is exactly
balanced on the new horizontal platform. An inch beyond ihis poinl and
the balance la destroyed; the platform
tilts in the opposite direction and the
car, Impelled by gravity slides down
it. One need not he a motorist to see
how wonderful must be the Judgmenl
and control to stop a cur. travelling
at. perhaps, a dozen miles an hour, on
the exacl een,re of ihis delicately-balanced platform.
Another competition which requires
almost equal skill, and which causes
endless amusement to onlookers, is the
following. A couple of parallel planks
are placed across a stream, and over
tins,' narrow (racks the competitors
assaj to drive their cars. As each
plank is only just wide enough to take
the wheels, i, is easy to see lha,.unless, a driver has his car absolutely
straight and strikes the exact centre
of , ach track, he musi inevitably come
I i grief: and in many cases this is his
fate, much to his dlscomforture and to
the enjoyment of spectators,
1,: another competition wooden posis
are placed in a straight line in the
mi,Idle of lhe track, at Intervals equal
io ihe length of uie average motorcar, and the competitor's task Is io
Steer a zigzig course between tb.se
obstacles without touching or upsetting Ihem. In order to accomplish
this difficult feat he musi continually
turn his car within its own length, and
al the sa.me time be careful to clear
each post in turn with his hind wheels.
More difficult even than Ihis is Ihe
following. At Intervals along each side
of the irack dummy figures nre placed,
facing each other and at such a dls-
tnnce apart as to allow barely nn inch
:,,,' the car, If accural.-ly steered, to
pass. To steer be,ween these parallel
rows of dummies, I ravelling forwards,

A quaint old superstition Is lo thlt
day held in P.'land to the effe, i thai
two lighted candles set aii..at on the
river l,y two levrs will by their c ,n
duct foretell if ibe course of true lovi

The "lovers' candles" are launch, I

place every summer on that part of tin
Vistula which runs through Poland. II
commences at sunset. The river is
thronged with n procession of little;
boats containing masked ladies aud
gentlemen. Each person carries twe
wreaths and two candles, the latter
representing (he person carrying them
and the object of his or her affections
They are lighted, fixed firmly In the-
center of the wreaths and lai,I side hy
side in the water. Should they float
down the river close together It ls a
sign that their lives should lie united.
Should they drift away from each oth
er it ls a sign thnt the lovers will he
parted, nud should they only drift
asunder for a little way aud farther on
come together again lt is a sign that
the loved ones will only be parted for
a time and all come right ln the cud.
There Is much method and order about
the arrangement of this procession
The boats glide along ln rows, so many
abreast, and after the first row have
proved their wreaths they move away
to the sides and the others come for

Ordinarily Cheerful, II   II.Id a   strain
uf   l,..',i   Melancholy.
Hopeful and cheerful as he ordinarily
seemed, there was lu Mr. Lincoln's disposition a strain of deep melancholy.
This was not peculiar to hlm alone, for
the pioneers as a race were somber
rather than gay. Their lives had been
passed for generations under the most
trying physical conditions, near miliaria
Infested streams and where they breathed the poison of decaying vegetation.
Insufficient shelter, slorms, the cold ot
winter, savage enemies anil the cruel
labor that hilled off all but the hardiesl
of them had at the same time killed thc
happy-go-lucky gayely of an easier
form of life. They were thoughtful.
watchful, wary: capable, Indeed, ol
wild merriment, lull it has been said
that although a pioneer might laugh hf
could not easily lie made to smile.
Lincoln's mind was unusually sound
nnd saue and normal. He had a cheerful, wholesome, sunny nature, yet he
had inherited the strongest trails of the
pioneers, and there was In him, moreover, much of the poet, with n poet's
. capacity for joy and pain. It ls not
1 strange that ns lie developed Into man-
| hood, especially when his deeper nature
began to feel the stirrings of ami,11 Ion
nnd of love, that these seasons of depression nnd gloom came upon hlm
with overwhelming force.���Helen Nico-
