Board   of  Trade   Discusses
Many Questions.
Tramways to Ladnef Snd Mission Re-
celve Attention���Alaska Makes
First Trlanol* Trip.
Many subjects of varying Import
aiue were discussed at a meeting ot
the rtoai d of Trade last tight. Two
important announcements were m*de
Flist, it wss reaftlimed by Mr. Ooulet,
of the C. P. R, that his road was giving a dail/ rreigbt sen ice to Westminster Junction and lnteimedfata
poiuts, and also to Kraser mills. Sec
ond, It was stated by Mr. J. Duncan,
chairman of the transportation com
mittee, that the steamer Alaskan had
sailed on her flrst triangular trip'between beattie, New Westminster and
Victoria. Tbe boat has left for Seat-
tie, and would make the round trip i
once a week.
Hold ths Delta.
Several committees reported to the
board. The most Important repo.t
was that of the transportation commit
tee on the matter of a tram from Ne*
Westminster to Ladner. 'Mr. Duncan
was of the opinion that this city |
should go after the Deita ti-ade as
keenly as possible. The Vancouver
Hoard of Trade were trying their
hardest to secure it for themselves,
and he advised the New Westminster
board to do its best to interest capital in the building of a tram line tj
their own city. To his mind the fact
that the Western Power Company wai
nofr supplying power simpllited matte: s considerably. I
Mr. Sinclair spoke to the question .
and thought that a line running to j
Join tne Chilli wuck line would open
up more country than one running
acrosu Lulu Island. Mr. Kichuidson,
sp^aKing as an old La lnerlte, thought
tnat fcowethlng might be done, if tne
matter was referred to a special com*
mittee with instructions to visit Tao
people of Laciner and the Delta. A
resolution to tnis ettect was accordingly passed, and Mr. A. H. White, piebl
<lcnt, anointed Messrs. Richardson,
Duncan, 11. Gilley, and the secretary
to act on the committee, wKn powe.
vo add to their number. *
Coquitlam   Line.
Tramlines were again discussed
with leference to the piojfcsej line
fru'u Mission via Co.iuiiUm to Van-
coa.er, and the transportation committee, strengthened by the addition
ut ...easrs. Sheriff and Mothei ,,el.,-
was instructed ta wait upon the WeLt-
��in luiiada Power Company with a
vie.v to protecting New We-lndu-
���tar's inteiests ln this matter.
Mexican   Trade.
Another Important subject raised���
this time by Mr. L. B. Lusby���was
that of the poor service supplied hy
the Canadian-Mexican line .to thii
port. The speaker gave a brief history of the relations between Xhe line
and tbis city, and maintained that .the
hater had been badly used by the
steamship company. Bar a lime the
boats had called here, but they had
given slow delivery and discriminatory rates. Then they had practically
ceased calling here at sU, except lor a
large cargo, with the result .that the
trade from New Westminster .to Mexico and via the Tehuantepec peninsular was sadly injured. The expiration
of their Dominion subsidy, however,
was drawing near, and ihe imoved
that they send to the Dominion government, and ask that a Xunther iBub-
sidy be refused, unless New W.eatmln
ster b�� put on an equal has s w.tu
Vancouver and other ports ns to rates,
and .that lt be made a regular point o.
This resolution was agreed to.
Millside   Line.
Mr. White stated ln answer to a
question that the Millside line was
built as far as the flrst O. N. R. tracks
and thut the work was only suspended, pending the authority fram the
Railway Commission to make the
crossing. The delay in the building
ef the O. N. R. depot was the result
of an unaettled dispute between the
city and the provincial government.
The plans had been prepared, and he
understood that ones this motto- had
been settled the construction would
be begun forthwith. He also took the
opportunity of Informing the heard
that the banquet had not been forgotten. He was ln communication
with a very distinguished person,
whom ihey hoped to secure as their
gnest. Until tliey had received his
answer they could make no deflnit j
River   Traffic.
Better facilities for the river traffic
were also touched on. Mr. Vidal re
ported for the Navigation Committee
that they considered It necessary
steps be taken to light the channel
during the night time, as boats were
frequently beld up at the mouth of
the river, because of the danger ef
na\ Igating It in the dark. The question of equHpln* the Westminster,
Pitt river and other bridges with fog
belts was referred to the same com

Native Sows Elect Officers for Year���
���W. F. Edmonds Becomes
Chief Fartor.
The election of officers for 1912,
and the final arrangements for the
grand ball to beheld on January 29,
occupied the attention of a crowded
meeting of the Native Sons held in
the K. of P. IU11 last night. W. F.
Kdmonds was elected over J. P. II.
Bole to the position of Chief Factor,
And James I. Keary First Vlce-Facu.r
Very satisfactory progress in tbe mai
ter of tbe dance was reported by all
Between 900 and 1000 Invitations, it
wah reported, had been' sent out for
the dance, and a very large number ot
leplles had been received. In fact,
over half the tickets have been so.a
already. Everything points to a record crowd, and while lt was generally
acknowledged that the laat two balls
had been great successes, confidence
was expressed that this one woull
easily <eol!pse them both. The decor
atlng committee reported that an entirely novel scheme of decoration
would be used. Other committees
gave equally satisfactory accounts and
final arrangements were ma 'e to ensure the success of the affair.
The officers elected beside the two
already mentioned, were as follows:
Past chief factor, A. H. Johnston; second vice-president, A. E. McToll; honorary treasurer, J. J. Johns'on; fiian
cial secretary, R. G. Sharpe; record-
Ins secretary. A. L. Johnson; inside
sentinel, A. S. McColl; outside sen
tinel, J. J. L. Sangster; auditor, J. I.
Keary. The committee of manage
ment were Dr. Wilson, 'if. P. Keary
and A. L. McColl.
Security of Life and Property
The land owners at Upper Sumas
are working hard to forward the construction work in connection with the
lake lands. At a recent dyking raee ���
lng held at that place n. petition was
Blgned by everyone present asking thu
Dominion government that tbe lake
lands st acide for dyking purposes be
granted to the commissioners, so that
the company undertaking the constru-
tton Should be able to go cn with the
work with full assurance that tha
lands will go to them in the event of
their fulfilling tbe necessa-y conditions. Once this point Is settled, it 1=
believed the work will be begun almost Immediately.
Conditions in Macedonia Worss Than
Under  Rule of  Deposed Sujr
t tan.
London, Jan. 18��� The reports oi
special conespondents ln Macedonia
and otber parts of Turkey describe ln
the most gloomy strain the conditions
throughout Turkey generally. According to one wi iter the conditions in
Macedonia are even worse than the-'
were under the rule of Sultan Abdul
Hamid. There Is a complete absence
of security for life and property, and
the authorities appear to be unable to
btay the tide of lawlessness.
Another correspondent says similar
conditions exist in Northern Albania
and the flrst outbreak may be expected in that region soon.
The unrest In Turkey Is fully .realized by the European powers,, who
are anxious to bring about a cessation of hostilities between Turkey and
Italy before the season ls sufficiently
advanced for the Macedonians and Albanians to begin their guerilla campaign. Bulgaria and Greece, however,
are maintaining a co reet attitude In
their relations with Turkey.

That the amount of mchey spe.t by
the Lene.oient bociety and the number of those receiving relief in the
ctty of New Westminster during tne
last year are the .smallest on n-ord
since tbe formation of the society,
was the very satisfactory report made
by Secretary W. A. Duncan at the
annual meeting held yesterday afternoon in the Board of Trade rooms,
i nts means ' that the pi eseut conditions of the city are better from tne
point of view of poverty tnan at aay
time since 1!H.<; During 1911 only
$680 were rece.vid frcm the CjU_c.i,
an.1 only $063 expended In le.ief. A
certain amount of clothing was received from piivate individuals and
distributed by the organization.
The officers for the cui rent year
were also elected and those of 1911
weie reappointed to serve again.
These are: President, Mayor Lee;
vice-president, Mrs. A. J. Hill; treasurer. Mrs. John Foirester, and secretary, Mr. W. A. Dunoon.
Besides the points already mentioned, the secretary's report chronicled eleven meetings held (during the
year. It was also pointed out that all
relief had been given in kind and .not
In money, and had taken the form of
groceries, rent, fuel, clothing, etc. Attention wns called to the unfortunate
absence of the vice-president through
sickness. The office has been held by

half a century or more, who has Just

Hale and hearty and as flt as a seasoned fiddle la Mr. Conant as was

The "good old crinoline days" of
the early "40's," when tha beaux and
belles promenaded the vicinity of tho
Astor House, as the most fashionable
neighborhood, and the present moment of the hobble skirt wero literally
and pleasantly linked by Mr. Conant
ln his talk.
"I recall," he said, "that when I
came here flrst in 1840, the Astor
House was tbe most famous hotel ln
America, and was thought to be something very grand Indeed. There was a
park opposite, where spreading elms
provided shade in summer and where
fashionable folk gathered at fashionable hours. There waa a fountain,
too, that sprayed water ln beautiful

j "The young New York dandies of
that day and time affected to disport
I themselves in the best hotel, just as
today they do in so many of them. I
remember that some girl friends then
used to crack Jokes among themselves
about certain of the young fellows
who could not afford to eat at the
Astor House, but who were accustomed to going there and showing
themselves on the front portico with
toothpicks in their mouths Just after
meal Ume. They thus made a splurg;
and saved money at the same time.
"And I wouldn't wonder," said the
old artist, with a twinkle in his eyes,
"that some of 'em are up to Just such
tricks today.
��� "The fashions of the ladles ? Oh, I
I can tell you they were Just as anxious
1 to be dressed stylishly then as now.
The fashions all came from Paris. The
hoop skirt was tbe real sensation of
the first years I spent here. Did you
know that' lt was the Empiess
Eugenie that started that ? Well, she
did. It was Just before the time when
the Prince Imperial was born.

The arrival of the weekly paper
from Boston or some other large town
was an event. One of my earliest
recollections of newspaper enterprise
waa the coming of a New York paper
at Christmas time, with pictures in It
"They would be laughed at now,
but they were wonderful tben. They
showed Santa Claus and also some
sacred scenes. I further remember
distinctly that my father decried such
a thing. Christmas, he to.d me, was
a Popish Institution and not to be
tolerated.' Thanksgiving came to be'
tbe great day in New England, but It
remained for broader times to create
the Christmas spirit ln Vermont.
Profligacy Stirs Town.
"They had different ideas of spending money, too. Tbere was a man In
our village who gave an oyster supper to a number of his friends at tbe
hotel���or tavern, as we called IU It
leaked out that that suyper had.cost
the man five dollars, snd tbls fact was
seized upon by the gossips to thoroughly scandalize the neighborhood
Such profligacy was a terrible thing.
I thought of that when I read ln the
papers that New York spent a balf

Mr. Conant, a true artist and gentleman, refused to criticize adversely

Mr. Conant was found seated in an

Great Satisfaction In Groat Britain at
Creation of Strong Cabfaet���
London, Jan. 18.���In both official
and unofficial circles here the greatest
satisfaction ls felt that the grave
crisis ln France has brought tbe be3t
Frenchmen to the rescue. The existence of a strong ministry in France
at this Juncture gives a new solidity
to the Anglo-French entente, based as
the entente ls upon a full understanding with Great Britain for mutual
support.   The Times says:
"The new cabinet comprises men
of different antecedents and several
shades of publlc opinion. Without
hesitation, at the call of their country,
they have sacrificed party leanings
and personal ambitions. France has
been left humiliated and Indignant ae
the way M. Calllaux and other ex-
ministers privately trafficked with her
'interests and honor. She resented
their Intrigues. She expected the best
and ablest of her politicians to unite
in a government which she and
Europe could trust
Friends of France must earnestly
desire this combination of unusually
strong men to prove as stable as it Is

soon devote their talents to their own

Over Half of Direct Foreign Trade Is
Done with British Empire.
In view of current events In China
the observations of a British consul
In China, Mr. F. H. Fox, who is now
in England, are ot interest. Existing
conditions, he told a Morning poet
representative, are naturally somewhat unfavorable to the foreign
trader, though signs aie plentiful that
that wlll pass away. Much of tbe
weakness in trading has been duo in
past years to the lack of Intimate acquaintance wilh China's real needs, a
Condition now being improved by the
application of systematic and far-
reaching methods in bringing the
possibilities of China before the British trader by constant consular re
ports. As an example of lack of knowledge, Mr. Fox cites the case of a
British expoiter of made-up ribbon,
who was under the Impression that
Chinamen required the article for the
purpose of adorning the pigtail.
Tnere are not wanting signs of the
government's disposition to Westernize the whole system of China, and
Mr. Fox attributes tbe large volume
of export trade within recent times
to the improved facilities for transport afforded by tbe railways and to
the efforts made during the past few
years to develop China's national resources and Improve her antiquated
methods of cultivation. In the latest
teport, says the consul, the United
Kingdom and the British dominions
direct foreign trade with China
amounted to nearly 59 millions sterling out of a total of 114 millions, or
approximately, 52 per cent.
Mr. Fox gives sn Instance of Japanese activity in the China trade. In
1906 that country supplied China with
some 733,436 cotton pieces, while, according to the latest schedules, nearly 2,400,000 pieces passed from Japan
to the mainland.' The British authorities are fully alive to Japanese competition ln the piece goods trade, and
are taking steps to develop their own
business along broader lines, though,
says Mr. Fox, the matter of the superiority of the British article has never
yet been questioned. There are now,
be says, some 33 cotton mills operating In China, and the number of spindles has risen from 780,000 ln 1909 to
a million to date. A British Aim of
tobacconists now possess practicallv
the monopoly for the sale   of   cigar
ettes throughout China.. The trade ln
kerosene, divided between the American and British, has, lt ls understood,
developed a rate war. **
In regard to the importation of for
eign clothing, as affording an index ot
tbe westernization of China, Mr. Fox
says tha quantities   Imported   would
seem to indicate the beginnings   of
that    revolution    ln    Chinese    dress
which must follow the    adoption    of
western education and modes of life
in the country-   With the pigtail must

Baby's First Wardrobe Should Be

lt ls almost impossible for a young
mother to choose wisely wben selecting
ber first baby's layette. Sbe is told of
so many things she must bave that sbe
finds afterward tbat she rarely uses,
and there are so many more sbe bas to
add later tbat no one thought to mention.
"So lf this delightful task ever falls
to me again." said a young mother recently. "I shall spend less on lace edgings and cobweb Insertions and set
aside the amount saved for extra laundry work. To keep a baby dainty nnd
sweet requires an almost Incredible
amount of washing and ironing. If the
young mother attempts it sbe will havi

"In addition to counting on plentiful
laundering. I shall make tbe little garments simpler and put my surplus time
Into preparing more of tbem. A half

snd flannel underskirts, six dozen diapers, one-half dozen each of cashmere
stockings, shirts and abdominal bandit,
four buth wrappers and 'nightingales'
and one full dor.cn nightgowns are
necessary, but no more. The latter
need as frequent changing as lhe diapers, uui yet very few people provide
more than three or four. This gives
no opportunity for more than n hurried rinsing, whereas this garment
needs careful sterilizing and utrtug
more than nny other.
"I would buy tbe shaped diapers

not even bis sous wbo work with him.
Johnuuson bas made tbe world beat
a |>ath to hla door, for he has discovered the secret of making a more accurate limit gauge thou any previously
in use. A single set of his gsuges
given a practically unlimited series of
sizes, rising by steps of a ten-thousandth of an inch���much less than the
traditional hair's breadth���to twenty-
clx Inches. It la wild thut 80.000 com
binntious of these gauges are pussl
No dimension within tbeir limits bas
been died tbat they failed to reproduce. Extreme accuracy In building
machinery, particularly that of motor-
cars. Is of tbe greatest Importance, and
tbe flrst step townrd that end Is tbe
perfection of a standard. Making sucb
standards Is a tedious and expensive
process. Bnt Johnnnson has not
found It so. or else he values his secret lightly from the pecuniary point
of view, for be Is able to pay Uncle
Sam it duty of 4.1 per cent and still
offer Ma gauges In tbe American ��nnr
ket for a few hundred dollara. although
they could not be made bere for many
i times their price.
I Wben two of these Swedish gauge?
j are "wiped" together so as to exclude
! tho air from between them they nd
! here with a pressure which expert.
j ment has shown to exceed thirty
j pounds to the square inch. Twenty
; or more pieces may be thus wiped to-
' gether nnd supported horizontally by
! merely holding the last one. which
means thnt the accuracy of their various surfaces Is almost absolute.
Finishing one  surface or  two surfaces to n very close limit by lapping
' ���rubbing together with a fine abrasive
; between���Is   a   comparatively   simple
matter.     But  achieving  such   perfeel
parallelism as Is shown  by these remarkable   gauges   Is   quite   another
. thing, a secret quite well worth know
The peculiarity about this mysterl
' ously   powerful  adhesion  of  the sep
urate  pieces  Is  that  the  feel  of  the
built up gauge thus formed is exactly
the same us thnt of a single piece of
metal, and this holds for any comb!
nation, the number of pieces forming
it  not  affecting tbe sensation in the
slightest.    Any  skilled mechanic  wlll
understand Instinctively  the  meaning
1 of tbls and its testimony to the  ac
curacy of thp gauges.
For Instance, a one Inch gauge may
i be  built  up  of  pieces   representing
j0.r.+0.2+0.05+.150-J-0.l   Inch,  and   thc
resulting piece will lie oue Inch nbso
' lute, or any one of several other com-
'��� blnatlons may be made to represent an
Inch, and blindfolded the most expert
mechanic could not detect tiuy difference between tbe manner ln which this
I composite   Inch   gauge   nnd   the   oue
��� piece Inch gauge fitted In a snap gauge
of tbe same size. It would be an easy
mutter to confuse the two In handling.
Mr. Johnnnson. (he backwoods inventor wbo discovered what thousands
. of tbe most expert mechanics in ma
chine   building   centers   have   vainly
i sought for half a century,  limits bis

The motion for the adoption of the report was then put and carried. Bylaws Increasing the number of Directors of the Bank, ln the event of the
proposed union with the Eastern Townships Bank being carried out, also increasing the authorized capital stock of the Bank were then passed. Resolutions relative to tlie Pension Fund and providing for an alteration in the
par value of the shares of the capital stock of the Bank were submitted and
passed. The usual resolutions expressing the thanks of the shareholders to
the President, Vice-President and Directors, and also to the General
Manager, Assistant General Manager and other officers of the Bank were
unanimously carried. Upon motion the meeting proceeded to elect Directors for the coming year, and then adjourned.

[Copyright uu. by Associated Literary
WHEN Mr. Bowser bad overslept his usual bour by fifteen minutes tbe otber
morning Mrs. Bowser weat
op, to see what was wrong. He was
���Wake, but be had just felt a sblrer
paaa over him. and had tba qullta
drawn up to ble chin. Be had made
fan of tie grip s hundred times over
and had area asserted that only per
abns of weak intellect would giro up
to it. but new be bad a feeling that
bs waa In for tt himself.
Mrs. Bowser scanned bis flushed
face and felt of hie pulse and quietly
"It's a ease of the grip, and you'd
batter stay In bed today. Of course
tba grip doesn't amount to anything,
but you'd batter uke reasonable precautions."
"But lt does amount to something,"
be contended as another shiver struck
him. "1 was reading last night tbat
It carried off over 400 people In tbls
town alone last year. I want a doctor
ht once."
"But It Is a mild attack, and you
know you have often said tbat no peraon with an ounce of brains"���
"It makes no difference what I have
often said.    I am all of a shiver one
doctor calls case ssuiora
minute and burning up tbe next, and
jmy mouth Is as dry as chips. Telephone the doctor at once snd tell him
jnot to be all day getting around bere."
Thought End Was Near.
Tbat was tbe beginning of tbe day.
!jAt a o'clock Mrs. Bowser brought up
some tea and toast, and Mr. Bowser
took a few sips of one snd nibbled at
tbe otber and aald tbat he bad a feel.
lng tbat be was not long for tbla
world. His voice was very plaintive
as he said It
1 At half past 0 he called Mra. Row-
���er up to say tbat be had a headache,
bis feet were cold and tnat be wsuied
a quiet funeral lu case of death. Sbe
. assured him that one day In bed wonld
-probably effect a cure, bnt be signed
.and shook bis bead and hoped tbat be
would have bia senses to the last
At 10 o'clock tbe doctor arrived.
Having beard Mr. Bowser disparage
tbe grip and tbe medical profession
combined, be felt It his duty to assume
a serious look and announce tbat It
was an aggravated rase and might
terminate ln pneumonia.
Tbe patient was to tske three kinds
of medicine, summon up all his wlll
liower und remain In bed for at least
two weeks. Be also Inquired If Mr.
Bowser bad bis life Insured snd his
house In order. In taking bis leave be
observed tbnt nine out of ten cases of
the grip were proving fatal and that
fat men were belug mowed down like
gross. \
Heard Dog's Dismal Howls,
At 10:30 Mr. Bowser felt bot flashes
And cold shivers, and a' dog bowled dl��
innfly in front of tha bouse. He did
not Inquire -ua to tho color of tbc dog,
but he felt mora shivers as be beard
tbe bowls, lie acknowledged that be
-was a crank Hnd a kicker and begged
"Mrs. Houser to turn his pillow over
iind forgive a dying man. He said that
tie didn't want to be burled in Connecticut, but wouldn't raise a fuss
���bout It
At 11 o'clock tbere were more shlv-
��rs, nnd be had a hot water bag at
his feet nnd a cup of bot tea; also beld
Mrs. Bowser's hand and said be was
norry for finding fault with tbe gas
At 12 o'clock noon tbe patient complained of numbness tn bis knees and
* buzzing ln his ears. Had his pillow
turned over and his feet tucked ln.
and Mra. Bowser went down nud chid-
ed the cook for singing, "1 Would Not
Lire Alwsy."
At 1 o'clock Mr. Bowser seemed tn.
be asleep, but ns Mra. Bowser wiped a
tear off bis cheek be opened lil* eyes
ond snld thnt tf he wis to live bin life
'over again bed never buy a lire escape or a new milk cow without her
consent. He would like to live on for
her sake, hut felt thnt be was called
to go.   More toast nnd tea, and be ate
' Heartily ear a dylag aaaa.  Pillow tara*

At I ���'clock the doctor came again.
Ha looked mora serious tbaa before I
and aoundad Mr. Bowser's longa. Seemed to take a secret satisfaction  In
thumping blm well.   Announced tbat
I tbere was no sign of pneumonia vet,
but advised the utmost caution agalnat
I exposure or  excitement    Bald  tbat
i moat of bis pstlents wbo died beard a
' dog bowl a few hours before dlssolu-
i tlon.    It waa Jum possible tbat be
! could pull tbe ca��e through, but���
j   As noon as be bad departed Mr. Bow-
I ser bad four shivers in succession and
gave Mrs. Bowser a Hat of debts to
be paid after be bad become an angel
At S o'clock tbe patient tried to sing
a hymn, but gave It up In tbe middle
of tbe flrat verso and asked Mrs. Bowser If aba could possibly forgive him
tor Jawing around when tbe coal was
out   Sbe wiped the tears from bis
eyea aad kissed blm. and be whispered that he waa sorry for cslllng bis
mother-in-law a human hyena.
His Wife Farglvee Him.
At 4 o'clock the patient fait a crinkling of bis toes, accompanied by a
twitching of tbe ears, aad be declared
hia belief tbat thla wu a sign of dissolution. He recalled tbe fact tbat bo
bad one* came bome and raised a
great row on finding a clothespin tn
tbe front yard, and ba wanted to die
knowing that Mrs. Bowser bad forgiven blm. Forgiveness was extended,
and ba was sssured tbst be had many
years of life still before blm. This
cheered blm for a moment but a new
buzzing ln bis ears admonished blm
tbat bis atay In tbls world might bo
At B o'clock more toast and tea.
While tbe patient ate and drank be
said be was leaving tbe best wife in
all tbe world behind blm and tbat be
deserved booting for tbe way be bad
beld ber responsible for broken windows and frozen water pipes. He
spoke of tbe ent ax If she were a human being and wondered If sbe would
mlss blm. Wondered bow he could
ever bave been so foolish as to try to
ride a bike
Bids Family Cat Qeedby.
At 6 o'clock the patient felt that
pneumonia had adzed him in its deadly clutch and that two hours more
would witness the end. Be beld Mrs.
Bowser's band und begged ber forgiveness for saying tbat itbe bad no system about housekeeping, referred to
hls mother-ln-lnw again and left Jber
several farewell messages.
At 0:30 o'clock the patient weakly
whispered that he wished to bid tbe
family cat good by.    Be hud1 not been
kind  to her and  his  ronsrlewre   was
troubling him.   Ou three occustous be
bad even sought to take her life.   Tbe
cat was brought, and an she seemed to
say "Oh. forget lt!" tears rolled' down
bin cheeks.    Be then closed  bis eyes
and appeared tn be resigned to tbe In- ,
evltable.   Even the cook lu tbe kitchen J
wns weeping, nnd the umbrella menders passing the house were requested
to lower their voices to n whisper.
Mekes Sudden Recovery.
At 7 o'clock, as Mrs Bowser sat
downstairs and her patient was supposed tu he asleep. Mr. Bowser suddenly appeared before ber ln bis dressing
"Good gracious:" abe exclaimed.
"But yoo-yoo"-
"Exactly. madam." be replied as be
looked around for n cigar. "You aud
