Present, Mayor York, A'd. Smith,
Bradshaw, Nichol and Woodcock.
As the band meets for practice on
Tuesday evenings in the same building, there was a struggle between
the two bodies, the city dads having
to rush their business and get out.
Communications were read from

agent for Taylor & Co., Toronto, enclosing cuts of safes and prices, he
having called on the mayor in con
nection therewith the day previous.
The mayor urged the council to buy
a safe, as it was necessary for the
preservation of citv papers. Personally he was in favor of purchasing tho Kaslo safe, as it was a large
one and as gond as new. Irs original
cost was $010, 60. at the price offered
was a bargain.
The clerk was instructed to write
Kaslo and secure terms fur purchas':

A letter was read from Frank
Fletcher, dealing with the cemetery;
also from Aid. Worden, while in Nel

clerk instructed t<» write Mr. Fletcher
for two blocks of land for cemetery
purposes, opposite blocks 46 and 47.
The other letters were also IVled.

trade licenses, treasurer's bonds, and
tho establishment of a monthly pay
day. Tlio licenses remaining Unpaid
were in t'Scess of $100. After discus
sion.tlic burthen of which was that, to
say the least, it was unfair to those who
had paid for others to trade without
licenses, thfl clerk was instructed to
notify each delinquent by letter, as
well as by published notice; jjiving
them 10 days within to pay, or action
would be taken against them.
The treasurer intimated, through
Aid. Bradshaw.that he. would supply
at once the necessary bonds for his
It was decided to make the 15th of
each month the regular pay day for
the city, on motion of, Ala. Bradshaw
and Woodcock.
The (mistion of the incorporation

matter was left to tbe finance com

eminent rebate is not to hand by
next Monday, tho members themselves would pay the amount.
On the subject of taxing the ranch
crs selling produce in the city, it was
stated there was no law compelling a
license to be paid.
The clerk was authorized to cancel
the order placed with Thomson tivoa,
for a seal, and an order for the same
will be placed elsewhere.

one then told the authorities they

of sale wsre again changed. However, things got si hopelessly muddled and the chances of a sale so slim
that Mr. Chipman wired the department for leave to withdraw the sale,

One of the rules of Alan Stacey's life
was that when he took a holiday it
should be a real holiday. He was not
one of those persons who combine busi-
nesa with pleasure and make themselves
an annoyance to their friends by keeping the bogy of work ever present with
They left London immediately after
the wedding, going by slow and easy
stages to Italy, and for three long, delicious months they reveled in luxn-
rions happiness. Alan Stacey made
traveling so easy. He was content to
travel for pleasure j he detested people
who made it a business.
"No, my dear sir," he said one day
to an enthusiastic American who was
badgering him to go and see an Etruscan tomb, "I have not gone, and I do
not mean to go."
"But. my dear sir, it is your duty to
goi you ought to go; yon ought to improve your mind; you ought to see ull
that tbere is to be seen. Tins is a wonderful specimen, a real old Etruscan
tomb You may never have another opportunity of seeing one so perfect and
"I don't care," said Alan Stacey doggedly. "I came here to enjoy myself
with my wife. My wife doesn't care
about tombs, and I don't care about
tombs. All the Etruscan tombs in the
world will not be the smallest uso to
me. They do not interest uie. and they
do not please me, and I refuse to be
badgered into meditations which only
irritate and annoy me. Do you go ami
look at the tomb and stay there I shall
not complain. 1 shall never grumble at
your choice of a habitation."
"Poor thingl He means well," said
Mary when the energetic sightseer had
"I dare say he does." Alan replied,
with a laugh, "bnt I wish he'd go and
mean well somewhere else. Let na move
on. You said yesterday that yon would
like to go to Bella Villia. Let us go tn
Bella Villia and lose him."
They worked their way home from
Italy at last, returning by way of the
Riviera, and the middle of May saw
Mrs Alan Stacey settled iu the beauti-
fnl old house at FnHiam. with what
was practically the world at her feet
How happy she was! She had been
used to think tbat. uo mutter what fate
awaited ber in tin* tut nre. the horror.
the HicL-riiitiu dread the terror, tbe re-
pugnance, the shuddering misery, or trie
past would always be with her Bul it
was not so. Time, tbe wonderful physician, taught her to forget, and hy the
time she found herself installed in the
Fulhaiu huuso she might, so far as her
feelings went have been Mrs Alan
Stacey for ten years instead of little
more than as many weeks.
On the very first morning after their
arrival home she sent for the housekeeper who had been left in charge of the
Sycamores at the time of their niar-
"I sent for you," said Mrs. Stacey
gently, "because it is better that wa
should begin with ■*. clear understanding of how we mean to go on Yon will
quite understand that as I shall continue to help Mr. Stacey with his work
I shall have no time for housekeeping. You understand Mr Stacey's
ways, his likes and dislikes. He has
been admirably satisfied with yon in
the past, and I would like you t6 know
now that I desire to make no change.
So long as yon continue to satisfy your
master yon will satisfy me You will
please continue exactly aa you have
done heretofore—yonr accounts, your
menus, everything just aa before Occasionally I may mako a suggestion to
yon if there is some dish tbat I should
like to bave, or if we are having visitors I may like to make some little alterations in tbe menu, but as a general
rale I do not with to be troubled with
any housekeeping arrangements"
The housekeeper, who wss a Frenchwoman and thoroughly knew the value
of a good place, thanked her mistress
and assured her of her fidelity and devotion.
Then Mary rang the bell, and when
John came in answer to the summons
she told him to shut the door: that ahe
wished to speak to him.
"John," ahe aaid. "I have just been
talking toMme. Boniface and telling
her tbat I wish your master's marriage
to make no difference in the domestic
arrangements You have satisfied him
for many years, and I hope yon will
continue to satisfy him for many years
longer. I may have to give yon a few
orders, but on tbe whole I wish you to
continue precisely as yon bave always
"Yon wonld like to have tbe key of
the cellar, ma'am?" said John politely
He had no more Intention of giving up
the key of the cellar than he hud of
giving np the use of his senses, bnt to
make the offer was the (Ugliest compliment he conld pay to his new mistress.
Mary langhed outright "No, John,'
abe ssid; "I do not think the key of ths
cellar wonld be of very much uso to me.
I am frightened of collars, to tell yon
tbe truth, and I shouldn't know one
bottle of wine from another. No. John;
yon understand Mr. Stacey's ways, und
von will please just do for him as you
have been accustomed to do. I don't
think that his marriage—our marriage
—will mako him more difficult to
pleass I hope quite ths contrary. But,
thank yon, John, for offering ma the
*   f   '    '•'*--! —■—   in       I   ■	
key of the cellar. 1 am sore it is a very
great compliment, and I appreciate it
And then she smilingly dismissed
him, and John went away feeling that,
after all, his master had done the very
best possible thing for himself
Then she and Alan settled down to
real hard grinding work. He declared
many times that never in the whole
course of hia existence had he lieen
kept to work so ruthlessly and so persistently as by his new task mistress
"By Jove, if I had thought that yon
were going to goad me on like this. 1
should have thought twice before I
asked yon to come here for good and
"Oh, no. you wouldn't I" said Mary
"It is very good for you, and yon know
you are perfectly happy, so don't pretend anything elsa "
And it was true enough. She certainly managed him and his work admirably, for by keeping him np to the
mark for certain hours ahe was able to
be free herself at a fixed time every day
And there was never an idle minute for
either of them, for, as I said awhile
ago, Alan Stacey had always been a
persona grata in society, and his many
friends all seemed but too anxious to
receive his wife with open arms.
It was a brilliant life All tbat was
best and brightest in the great world of
art flocked to Alan Stacey's bouse now
that it boasted of so charming a mistress Mrs Alan Stacey went everywhere and was noted wherever she
went Almost every day, in the columns devoted to the doings of well
known people, there was mention of ths
brilliant novelist and his wife Her
dress, her receptions, ber tastes, were
continually chronicled, and for his sake
—for Mary was singularly farseeing in
everything that concerned her husband
—she put herself to immense pains in
order that she should always create aa
favorable an impression as possible She
was essentially the very wife foi: such a
man. She never attempted in any way
to shine him down. Rather, on tbe contrary, did sbe draw him out And show
him at his best. She ruled his household with a dignity and simplicity that
went to make her a favorite with all
classes of bis friends. Her great hold
over him lay in the fact that, although
she was possessed of no artistic gift herself, she was never dull, was not in the
least degree narrow in mind or judgment that she was possessed of that
scrupulous politeness which demands as
well as gives attention. At the end of a
year—a year of wholly unalloyed happiness—Alan Stacey would as soon have
thought of striking hia wife as of omitting to pay her any of those small attentions which are as oil to the wheel
of the matrimonial chariot. It wan wonderful that it was so, because he bad bestowed everything upon her. He had
changed her life from one of toil, of
comparative penury, of dullness, of
loneliness, to a brilliant existence, the
light of which she had never known, and
which, had she known, she would never
have dared to think conld possibly one
dav be hers
And as their happiness grew and
throve apace so did Alan Stacey's star
of fame grow more and more brilliant
There bad been at the time of his first
great success croakers who had foretold
tbat the star of Alan Stacey's brilliancy
would wane in a little lime, but these
prognostications bad proved to be
wrong With every book that had come
out bis genius was seen to be more intense and more brilliant He had tbe
magic touch, the subtle insight, the
grace, the freshness, the romance and
the poetry which are needed to make a
really great and lasting success To
some of ub—to most of us, I should
bave said—the refining fires of sorrow
are necessary, but now and again there
shines upon the world a great mind
which feeds on the sunlight. Alan
Stacey was one of these, and the more
the happiness of his life increased tbe
more brilliant did bis work become
The untold satisfaction of his daily life,
so far from cramping or stultifying
him. seemed as if it but fed the fires of
his genius, and it was a common thing
in the set in which Alan Stacey moved
for their union to be cited ns an excuse,
a reason, a justification, of the great
and old fashioned institution of marriage.
"Marriage a failure I" cried a great
painter one day when some theorist
propounded the idea that marriage wus
frequently a failure because of tbe inequalities of intellect and attainments
in those who were indissolnbly bound
her management of Stacey. I don't
know." the great man went on reflectively, "that she even has a temper, and
yet I fancy she could dust Stacey's
jacket for him if need be."
"And you don't consider their marriage a failure. Sir John T"
"Stacey's marriage a failure! Good
God. madam, what are you talking
aboutf Stacey's twice the man he was
before he married tbat little woman. I
always regard her as the pivot around
which all the brilliant gems of Stacey's
intellect revolve And it is necessary,
madam, for gems of intellect to have a
pivot that they can safely and rationally revolve round. And between ourselves—nnd not between ourselves for
the matter of that—I have always looked upon it as a very lucky thing for
Alan Stacey that he happened to meet
with the very woman who could make
all the difference in the world to him.'

have always done."

It was just three years after her marriage with Alan Stacey that Mary came
down stairs one morning into the long,
low ceiled dining room where breakfast
wus awaiting her She received the
noisy greeting of the rough haired terrier with a kindly pat on the head,
stooped and ruffled the fur of the great
Angora cut as be lay before tbe cheerful
fire She turned to the manservant
when he came in.
"Oh, John. Mr Stacey has a bead-
ache this morning, the worst he has
bud for months. He says he will take no
more than a cup of tea and two bits of
dry toast.'
"Indeed, ma'am, I'm sorry to hear
that. " said John in u sympathetic tone.
"It's a long time since the master has
had a real bad headache Tbunk yon,
ma'am," as she poured out the large
cup of tea.
Mary sat down in her place and
poured out ber own tea. She was not
worried or upset at ber husband's in
disposition, because he was a man who
bad all his life suffered occasionally
from violent headaches, and he declared
that since his marriage they had been
much less frequent than formerly She
helped herself to some kedgeree and
opened one by one the pile of letters
beside her plate, smiling over their
contents new and then, as if sbe found
the news they contained pleasant
Then, these disposed of. she took a second helping of the kedgeree, which was
unusually genu, and opened the newspaper, setting it up against the teapot
for tbe greater convenience of being
able to eat ..ud read at tbe same time.
Like all women, she read the first column to begin with, then turned tbe paper over to the middle sheet. In one
moment the whole utmosphere and attitude of ber life was changed, for
tbere. in staring letters before her, waa
tbe heading "Survivors of the Arikhama. '
She caught the paper up from its po
sitiou against the teapot and thrust it
dowu between the table and her knee,
sr,-*--^ on mechanically nating her breakfast, as if by so doing she could keep
the suspicions announcement at arm's
length. Then she found that, although
she bad gone on eating, sho would uot
swallow tho food that was in her
mouth, nnd, as sbe came to a realization
of the fact, sbe choked the mouthful
down and pushed her plate away.
"Survivors of tbo Arikhama 1" Good
heavens I Wbat did these four words
imply? "Survivors of the Arikhamal"
"Oh, my God, not that, not that I" she
moaned out, putting her bands np to
her head and staring hard at the opposite wall.  "Not that, not that!"
"Survivors of the Arikhama." The
trend of thoughts which the words
called up was hideous—hideous—hideous Perhaps, after all, be was alivel
She passed her hands over ber face to
clear her eyes from the mist that danced
before them. Her blood ran cold; her
flesh seemed to turn chill; her heart to
have stopped its motion; only her ♦erri-
blo thoughts went whirling, whirling,
whirling on—to what! To the fac*. that
Edward Conway might be one of tbe
survivors of tbe Arikhamal
She looked down nt the paper crushed
upon ber knee. "I daren't read it; 1
daren't read it. I will put it in the fire
as it is. It will be better not to know
Oh, my God, what shall I do?" Tbe

Don't be a coward 1 Faco tho worst;

So she took np the paper with nerveless, shaking fingers, smoothed it out
and bent her eyes npon it They refused
their office. Mercifnl nature spread a
curtain between her palpitating heart
her dazed brain and the cruel news
which the printed columns brought
She could tee nothing.
She shook herself together. "This is

How the Other Half  l.lvec,   ai Shown ia
They were a couple of dirty little
urchins tossing pennies at the entrance of a Clork&nweU court on ' a
summer ' Sunday ufturnoon. Their
hats were crownless, their bodies
coat less and their foet bootless. Indeed, their entire apparel seemed to
consist of two hat-rims and some
tattered ticking shirts and trousers,
tho bottoms of which were torn into
scallops, squares and other fancy
patterns. The little alleyway where
they stood guard wns dar"k and ill-
smelling, yet , from the rear there
issued sounds of music such as one
would scarcely expect to hear in
that neighborhood. "Who makes
the music?" I asked of tbe boy
whose penny had turned up on its
head. "What? You mean the hymn
tunes and sech! Them's the mission
folks what comes round every Sunday to preach and pray and sinur"
he answered. "Never seen 'em or
'eard 'em beforo, miss?" asked tho
other boy, with that happy solf-
satisficd air so often assumed by
children when the find they aro in
possession of knowledge denied to
their elders. "See 'ere, Jim; let's
stop tossin' coppers—'taint right nohow on Sundays1—an' we'll 'scort the
laidy in among the mission folks.
Can ye sing laidy?" On assuring
him that I could sing, he und his
companion, ono on either side of me,
escorted me in through tho narrow
alley towards the centre of the
court. There I found It wider than
at the entrance, so wide that it was
possible to stand six or seven
abreast. Three-storey     buildings
wero on the three sides of the court,
and fromv every window there peered
several faces. There were men in
their shirt sleeves, smoking pipes,
one! men with aprons tied round
their necks. They had stopped in
the middle of their Sunday shave,
with hands holding a razor suspended in midair. There were women
with plaid shawls crossed upon their
bosoms. their hair in knots which
had apparently not been untwisted
since tho preceding Sunday; and
there were children of all apes and
both sexes, garbed in the simplest
and scantiest of summer raiment,

Carpenter, the Bishop of ill-
pon, is one of tho most popular
clergymen in England, lie is a man
whose natural impulse must bo to
throw off his coat and work in his
shirt sleeves. "I never address the
Queen at all," he told fomebody
who asked him if he felt nervous
when preaching before Queen Victoria. "I know that there will be
present the Queen, the princes, the
household and tho servants down to
the scullery maid." Dr. Carpenter
is not ashamed to ride in a bus nnd
has often told the story r,f a penny
ride from Westminster to Charing
Cross. When the ticket collector
came round, the bishop found, to his
astonishment, that he had not a
penny in his pocket, and neither had
his wife, who was with him. Dr.
Carpenter mado up his mind to borrow the money when ho alighted at
Charing Cross, but before ho reached
his destination a workingman with a
bag of tools thrown over his shoulder turned to him as ho left the bus
and said: "Don't you bother at.out
that. . I've mado that all right."
Almost beforo the bishop could say
"Thank you" the man with the bag
was gone, and Dr. Carpenter found
that he had paid his faro nnd that
of his wife to the end of tho journey.
A Comical Blunder.
One of tho most ludicrous mistakes
made by tho telegraph was caused
by the loss of a single dot in a telegram from Brisbane to a London
nows agency. As it reached London
it read, "Governor-General twins
first son," which tho news agency
"edited" and sent around to tho psi-
pers in the following form: "Lu.iy
Kennedy, tho wife of Sir Arthur Kennedy, Governor-General of Queensland, yesterday gave birth at Government House, Brisbane, to twins,
tho firstborn boing a son."
The telegram arriving in the small
hours of the morning, thcro was no
time to check it or refer to Dobrott,
and it was published by most of tho
newspapers in London and tho provinces and caused an unexpected sensation. Sir Arthur's friends pointed
out with conclusive force that some
ono had blundered, as there nover
was a Lady Kennedy, Sir Arthur being a bachelor.
The repeat message which followed
"Governor-General turns first sod,"
reforrlng to a railway Ceremony.

Horace Turner nnd the huly whom he
tailed an angel, years ago, moved out
to Eviu.ston nbout the 1st of .Tune for
the summer. Mr. Turner bought a railroad commutation ticket for tho purpose of saving money. There were 00
rides on tbe ticket, which cost him $0.
"I won't use all theso rides." he explained to his wife, "but I'll come pretty
near it—near enough to bring the fare
dowu to 11 or 12 cents a ride auyway.
You see, if we go into the city to the theater or if I have to go in ou Sunday I
can uso my commutation ticket, and h*:'"
be just the snmo as it I rode free."
That was reasonable enough, but Mr.
Turner didn't happen to go into the city
at night or on Sundny during June, and
the consequence was that bo had about a
dozen rides left on his ticket when ths
month was ended.
But he didn't mind thnt. He felt that
he was ahead of tho game anyway, and
he went up to thc station ou tbo 1st of
July ond bought another monthly ticket,
promising himself to even things up by
doing more extra riding on Sunday nnd
at night. Meanwhile he kept his old ticket iu his pocket, having forgotten nil
about it.
One day when thn weather changed he
put on a heavier^suit of clothes. When
he wns riding into tho city the next
morning, he handed out h!s ticket to be
punched and kept on reading his paper ai
he did so.
"This Is last mouth's ticket," the conductor informed him.   "It's no good."
Then Mr. Turner looked nnd saw that
It was so. He felt for his July ticket,
but couldn't find it. Evidently ho had
Gshed the wrong ono from his pocket
when ho had changed his clothes.' He
tried to convince tho conductor that ha
was an honest man and would permit bis
sood ticket to be punched twice next time,
but it was a useless effort. If he had been
a pretty young woman, his plea might
have counted for something. As it was,
tbe rules had to be observed. So he paid
the full cash fare, rammed his old ticket
Into bis pocket and told several passengers who sat near him what robbers the
railroad companies were.
He happened to think of his ticket beforo he left home the next morning nnd
rode into the city without any trouble.
During the day he had occasion to rummage in his coat pocket for a letter and
while doing so fished out a railrond ticket
"There's that confounded old Juno
ticket again," he snid. "I'll just tear it
up, so that I won't make another mis'.iikt
when I change my clothes again.*'
He ripped it into littlo bits without
looking nt it n itasand time nnd forgot it
until he wns going home at night When
tho conductor came along, Mr. Turner
Unnded out his ticket and looked at the
headlines In his pnper.
"This is no good," said the man with
the punch; "last mouth's."
Horace Turner looked. There was prima facie evidence that be was unable to
shatter. Then he puid his fare again
snd made a mileum vow that he would
never buy another commutation ticket at
long as he lived.—Chicago Horard-Herald.
It did not take uinny years to find out
tbat lt was more profitable to pasture
the grass around me than to burn It In
the fall. This pasturing of tbe grass
was done so successfully that none wns
left to burn or to pasture. Finally 1
waa compelled to break up tbe land
and farm lt I raised large crops of
■mall grain, but soon saw tbat It was
a money losing game and tried to seed
my land back to grass. I found It very
difficult to get tame pastures to stick,
and If by accident I got a good stand
of timothy or clover the latter would
not last, and tbe former after a good
crop or two would get wbat i -nlled
sod bound and would not produc. a
load of hay to tbe acre. 1 know uow
why the timothy did no good after a
year or two. It was because we pastured It to the roots, thinking it economical to let stock eat tbe Inst spear
of grass that showed up In tbe fall.
Land having by that time advanced In
price, I could not afford to own pastures of tbat kind, and so I overstocked
it to make both ends meet 1 made up
my mind to own less and better stock,
and this change In no time mado a
great Improvement In my pastures. 1
soon saw tbat a growth of grass covered the pastures In dry weather when

Health and Vitality
For the Old People.
Wasted muscles, shattered nerves and failing strength may
result from old age as well as from disease. As old age creeps
on vitality is lowered, the heart beats more slowly, the blood
becomes thin and watery and the power of resistance is lessened. It is thc old people above all others who require the
new life and energy which comes with the use of Ur. Chase's
Nerve Food.
Scores and hundreds of old people depend on Dr. Chase''*
Nerve Food to restore their exhausted nerve force and replace
their wasted tissues. It calms and quiets the nerves, gradually
and certainly enriches the blood and builds up the system, and
makes old people feel again the thrill of new life and vigor in
their shrivelled arteries. From childhood to old age this famous
Food Cure is the greatest blessing which medical science has
bestowed on mankind.

Some Useful Hints to Mothers on the
Care of Little Ones.
Babies (;ry because they aro sick
or In pain, and iu almost every case
the sickness or pain is caused by
some disorder of the stomach or
bowels. Fermentation and -decomposition of the food produce a host of
Infantile troubles, such as griping,
colic, constipation, diarrhoea, simple fever, indigestion, etc. Proper
digestion of thu food is necessary to
tho maintenance of life, and evacuation of used up products and refuse
of digestion is necessary to health.
The lesson to mothers Is, therefore,
that the stomach and bowels should
be carefully watched, and if baby
cries, or Is fretful or cross, some
simple vegetable remedy, should be
given. Mothers should never resort
to the so-called "soothing" preparations to quiet baby, as they invaria-
ably contain stupifying opiates.
Baby's Own Tablets will be found an
ideal medicine. They gently move
the bowels, aid ingestion, and promote sound, healthy sleep, thus
bringinK happlnese to both mother
and child. They aro guaranteed to
contain no poisoning "soothing"
stuff, and may be given with absolute safety (dissolved in water, if
necessary) to children of all ages
from earliest infancy, with an assurance that they will promptly cure
all  their minor ailments.
For the benefit of other mothers,
Mrs. Alex. Lafave, Copper Cliff. Ont..
says: "I would advise all mothers
to keep Baby's Own Tablets in the
house at all times. When I began
giving them to my baby he was badly constipated, and always cross. He
Is now four months old, has not
been troubled with constipation since
I gave Him tho Tablets, and ho is
now always huppy and good natured.
Mothers with cross children will
easily appreciate such a change. 1
enclose .r>0 cents for two more boxes
of the Tablets, and will never be
without them in the house while I
have children."
Baby's Own Tablets are sold by
druggists or will be sent by mail,
post paid, at 50 cents a box, by
addressing tho Br. Williams' Medicine Co., Dept. T„ Brockville, Ont.

A Bell Thai  Srvsr Ran*.
A curious legend Is that connected
wltb the bell of St, Mura. In Ireland.
The bell was snld to have descended
from Ihe sky ringing loudly, but as it
approached the earth the tongue detached Itself and returned to the skies.
The people concluded from this that
ibe bell was never to be profaned by
sounding on earth, but was to be kept
for purposes more holy and beneficent

How an IUInola Farmer Prepares

It will be a long time before the alio

I bave a plan, simple, practical end
tested by the experience of several
years, which, while 1 do not claim It ia
superior to tbe silo, will perhaps recommend Itself by those very qualities.
Tbe plan Is this: Drill corn as thickly
as possible ln single rows 8 feet 2
Inches apart. Cut It with a corn harvester and set It np in large abocka,
20 to 25 bundles In a shock. Stack if
possible after Nov. 1. If It la stacked
earlier, It may heat Wben needed, it
Is passed through a feed cutter ran by
horse power and bandied by my own
help. There are a great many nnbblna
ou the stalks, and altogether tbls
makes tbe best and cheapest feed I
have yet found. This season my fodder, part of it stacked in November
nnd part of It drawn from tbe shock
inly lii.,t week. Is ln excellent condl-
lon, and my 40 milk cows are doing
llccly with no other roughness. Any
ne can try this plan without extra ex-

Proeeaa Too  Bxpenal-ro.
Warts are curious things. They
come and go mysteriously, although
their going Is frequently marked by
exasperating delays, and there ore almost as many Infallible cures as tbere
are warts, the only trouble with these
cures being that they are useless when
applied to the particular wart you happen to have. Tbey are only good for
other people's.
"In my opinion,' said a clubman who
was discussing tbe subject with a
friend one day, "a wart Is merely the
outward correspondence of some mental excrescence. Get rid of that, and
tt goes away.
"Lot me give yon a bit of my own
experience," he continued. "Last year
1 went to Europe. For about three
years I bad bad a wart on my little Anger, on which I bad tried everything I
Could hear of, but without effect It
only grew larger.
"Well, ln the excitement of preparing
for tbe trip and of the journey itself I
forgot all about my wart, and wben I
looked for It about bIx weeks later It
hnd vanished without leaving the
slightest murk. I simply forgot It, and
It bad no mental condition to feed on.
1 see you have one on the back of your
hand. Forget all about It for a few
weeks, and It will go away of Itself."
"Yes," said the other clubman, shrugging his shoulders, "but 1 can't afford
to lake a trip to Europe for the sake of
curing one wart."
Sewlnar Done by  Anta.
Ants are credited with so many mar-
velous accomplishments tbat a new one
must be remarknble to .ae noteworthy.
Mr. E. G. Green of Ceylon, nn authority upon Insect habits, hns. however,
made an observation wblcb Is well
worth putting on record. He has watched red ants holding grubs In their
mouths and using thc web they spin to
repair a rent In their nest.
Some leaves which had been fastened
together by the ants were separated by
Mr. Green, and In a short time nfter be
saw small white grabs being passed
backward and forward across tbe gap.
Closer observation showed that each
grub was held In the jaws of one of the
worker ants, and Its movements were
directed as required. A continuous
thread of silk Issued from tbe mouth of
each grub and wns used by the ants to
sew up the rent In their shelter.
There were no grubs In the neighbor
hood, and those used were obtained
from a nest at some distance. This deliberate use of a naturally formed web
as a sewing thread Is as astonishing aa
any Instance of the Intelligence of ants
yet observed.

Heavens, what a mess provincial

Mayor York was emphatic in his
remarks about tho council chamber
on Tuesday night. For a fact the
.place is not cheerful in appearance
or equipment, and the dads should
. take a tumble to themselves and get
it fixed up. No ratepayer will
grumble over a few dollars' extra
outlay for, that purpose, as the citizens want to see things clone decently
and in order. To use Oom Paul's
words, "Humanity would be staggered" were Clerk Foley found dead
from exposure some day while at his
postofdutv. There is more or less
dignity attaching to the position of
an alderman in Slocan, and the casket should be made worthy of the
jewel. Must have that city hall

It is a fright the amount of money

this place, and,in the main, for goods

too large an estimate of the money

institutions.   Think what that means
.to the'progress of the burg. The
Toronto house is rightly named, for
it Is Eaton up the vitality of this and
otter B.C. towns. The eastern stores
.will not sell on jawbone, while local
men aro expected to do so. All lines
of business arc fairly well represent
,ed here und there is no just excuse
why folks sliould enrich other towns
nt the expense of thoir own. Peo

say it is a shame—but many will
