at Once,
In a letter to Ths Ur.n.i., received
during the week, Geo. Chew, of Midland, Ont.i managing director of the
< hit a lio SI'i,'an l.uinlief Co., who pup
pose ei'ecting a large milling pjanl
bere, expreRses satisfaction ai the negotiations witli the city finally reaching the desired stage where tho necessary bylaw caq be submitted to the
ratepayers'. Tho negotiations Wsere
long drawn out, bul the delays were
unavoidable. Mr. Clew Btated his
brother was leaving Orillia th" next
week for Slocan to commence the
enaction of the mill buildings. Tin*
shingle mill would be erected and
equipped first, followedbythe lumber
null and other departments nbxt summer; The company now felt adex-id-
ed inlei'st in the placo and would
work for its upbuilding, while they in
return hoped the citizens woultl unite
upon making their enterprise a complete success.
On Tuesday next the ratepayers
will !v called upon to vote on the by-
bvw granting the mill company abo-
aus of 16000, with which to purchase
the site for their establishment, also
exi 'njiti,'!,.;' the plant from taxation for
ten years. It behooves the voters to
consider seriously the question before
them i ud to act in accordance with
theii-ideas of. malarial advaucemani
and prosperity to tlie city. A casual
-fiance al the situation her.' now existing will convince anyone that new
ilood must Ih; injected Into tho indus-
trial being of the place to *_ri \ t* i t life
and vigor. Xo property holder feels
.• mteiW to ,-ce his inyestmeni running
to /.*i*o. hut rather expects to see his
holdings enhancd in>value. If cannot
iventuate, howevsk', unless there com i
,i steady payroll and isa*eased pepu-
kition. The advent of the mill assures
these two principal factors to the- city,
•eiulting in increased buMness and
•;■".:. f rev inues to the municipal ox-
With larger population will follow
those accessories which go to make up
a modern town, such as electric lighl
and waterworks. To the unemployed
will come with the establishment oi
the mill an opportunity to secure
steady work, bo enabling a man lo
provide a permanent home for Ids
family. No man can gainsay the advantages certain to accrue from the
expenditure hereof $100,000and thi
providing of a payroll of S5000 to
17000 a month, an 1 the result of the
ballot on Tuesday will undoubtedly
be practically unanimous for the bylaw, Gel in and vote early and give
tlie other fellow a chance.

it was ut this juncture in his
affairs, that a terrible lire- occurred
ut Cooper's Mill, causing such frightful loss of life and property, that a
feeling of profound distress was excited by it in thu public mind, it
broke out ut a lute hour in the afternoon when ull hands were at
work, and' a high wind drove the
flames through the great building
with fatal rapidity. The foreman
seemed quite unable to control tho
mill hands, who rushed hither and
thither frantic with terror, blocking
lhe passages, crowding ut the doors
and windows, crushing against each
other, praying, shrieking, cursing.
Outside aiil was lung in coining and
Inefficient when It came: there was
little left to save when the fire was
at last subdued, ami meantime such
scenes of horror had been witnessed
that the newspaper readers shutldcr-
ed over their comfortable breakfasts
next morning. They censured the
mill owners (who were absent at
ihe lime) for not leaving more coin-
1 eti-nt men in charge; for not pro-
\ Idlng more numerous exits to a
building where so many people were
employed; for having allowed the
fire extinguishing appliances that
were on thc premises to fall into
such disrepair us lo be almost useless; they began lo censure Ihe foremen for not keeping lietter order
niiinng the panic stricken workers—
but the foremen's names were in thc
list of the dead, and censured ceased. Every one agreed that something must be dono at onco to aid
the survivors. The question was,
who would take the matter in
hand? The Provosl wus out of
lovvn, most of the inllucntial people
had gone to their country houses—
thc fire coulsl not have occurred at
a more unfortunate timo-of year.
"Every one's business" would
have been ls'ft to lhe proverbial No-
one, had not the Itev. ltr. Forbes of
St. Martin's, wiih Mr. Claverton,
Mr. Twiss, and other representative
men, met in consultation, and decided lo enlist tho sympathy of Ga-
vin Wishart.
"If he has inherited anything of
my old friend's benevolent spirit,
along with his name und his money,
he will be eager to 6Cizu this opportunity to help the needy," remarked
Dr.  Forbes hopefully.
•'It certainly is an excellent chance
for him to take that leading place
in the ranks of philanthropists
which I um persuatlesl he intends to
occupy. If the Provost had oeen In
town we must have applied to hlmi
I look upon lt as quite providential
that he is absent," said Klcnard
"Very providential—when you
compare the Provost's Income with
Mr. Wishart's," added William Clav-
Mr. Twiss with his usual practical
forethought, suggested that he should

They were ushered into a room,
where, for many years, |ietltioners
of all kinds had hivn welcomed by
the remarkably benevolent old man
whose death hud thrown such gloom
over the whole of the churitablc
worlsl. That section of the charitable world, which maintains itself
by extracting money from A and
handing  part of  il  over  to  B,     hud
ne;n bitterly grieved to learn thai
beyond bequeathing considerable
sums to be administered in trust for
two special bobbin of his—tho Aid
of Discharged Prisoners, and the Ke-
lief of Indies in Distressed Circumstances—olsl Gavin Wishart had done
nothing for the numerous other
schemes he had starled and assisted,
but had left the bulk of his property to a very distant relative, a
young man not yet thirty, hitherto
a clerk In a lawyer's office. There
was just u chance that the heir might
prove to le lavishly generous: it was
considered ominous, however, that
he lost no time In transferring to
the hands of Messrs. Claverton nnd
Anderson, his lato employers, the
fortune that Hiihiird Twiss had hnd
the management of for years—Rich-
ard Twiss having come to be Identified In tho public mind with his client's benefaction's, since he was the
channel through which the olsl man
chose latterly  to be approached.
"Wo always looked to your relative for help in such distressing
cases as this." said Dr. Forbes,
when Gavin had greeted his visitors.
"Old folks nre slow to learn new
wnvs; that, must be our apology for
finding our way here, as usual, now
that we are In want."
Gavin assured him, gracefully
en muli. that there was no need to
apologise. "How can T help?" he asked. "You must have money, of
course; Is there anything else I can
They rs'-ed leave fo send out their
appeal for aid in his name.
"Does that mean that you wish mc
to act  as seretiry,  Dr.  Forbes?"
"Not at all, not at all: we could
never dream of making such a de
m nd on your time! Our good friend
liich >r I Twiss. who is always ready
to indertnle the drudgery of Ihs
kind of th'n-r, authorized me to ofo"
Ivs services as secretary anil treasurer, if he were not hire in time to
offer them hin self."
Mr. Claverton was tinders'ood to
remnrk that as .Mr. Twiss had a goo I
deal of such work on his hands already, it was scarcely fair to allow
him lo burden himself with more;
nnd Dr. Forbes, who was a little
c'ssat, responded warmly, "Quite true,
Sir! a must experienced man. as ,vou
say. We are all agree 1 think that no
ono could be better lltted for the
task?"  'Iho majority assented.
So far, they had been staniling; but
now at Gavin's requsst ihey seated
themselves around tho table, uud
prococdrd to arrange the details of
the r ssheine. Most of them being business men to whom time was valuable, they discussed point after point
with great rapidity, delayed occasionally by having to explain some
matter at length to Ur. Forbes, who
wus more benevolent than practical,
Their work was almost complete
whin Hichard Twiss arrived, und ilie
information he brought proved the
necessity for immediate action. Some
of those present left at once to relieve the more urgent cass'S. others
went to canvass for further aiil—the
meeting wus at un end.
"1 fear you have seen some slis-
tressing sights, my dear sir." said
Dr. Forbes laying a sympathetic hand
on Twiss' unn. There was some cause
for his remark; Richard's face was as
white as the papers he held, and his
eyes vvoro still that look of extreme
terror that tells of clos* acquaintance
with what is horrible. He had riss>n
to leave — he. Dr. Forbes, and Mr.
Claverton, alone remained with Gavin — but he now drop|>ed back into
his chair as though his limbs had
suddenly lost their strength.
"It was sickening." he said, with
a shudder, "absolutely sickening: I
hope to God, I mav never see anything so awful again! I thought ijie
notvepa] er accounts were exaggs-rat-
ed, but tliey give a very faint h'ctx of
the reality. I can't get the sight out
of my mind. And I have had bud
news since I left the mill. I found
a note ut my oirce telling tne of my
brotltr Alan's death."
"Dear, dear, dear!" euculu'ted Dr.
Forl.cs.  "Wus he at the Cape'.'"
"No, ho sooms to have been on his
way home: h ■ vent ashore at Tenerife, and died thsre."
"Can ho have gone to Tens-rife in
tho hope of meeting John Corbett. I
wonder? they were such friends, those
two. Hut he must have heard of Corbett's death. Dear, dear, dear' Well,
Mr. Wishart, we will not trcspar-s
furthi'r on your time."
Gavin went with them to    the hall.
Mr. Claverton was tho last to
leave. Vtunsling on the doorstep
while he fastened his coat, he said,
"Dr. Forbes misunilerstood my remark a' out Hichard Twiss and the

'And I hoard you dissent from his

"Yes, ha does. They ure not a

his death to-da.v, because Mr. Anilcr-
son believed him to be dead some
months ago. Vou remember him, of

"Perfectly. I too heard a rumor of
his death, it nn.st have been unfounded."
"A sad career, his,

young to remember It, but 1 never

four-fifths ' of the rases that have

disagreements settled by arbitration,
he was the arbitrator. I don't
know that Hichard has altogether
sustained his father's reputation,
although your lato relative had such
implicit confidence In him: and as lo
Alan—we know  what he  wns,  eh?"
"Yes," answered Gavin thus appealed to, "we know what he was."
When Mr. Claverton had gone, Gavin returned to the room he hud
left. lie stood for some minutes
staring into vacancy, with eyes that
looked     as     those of Hichard Twiss
hud loo'.ed,     dreadfully afraid.    He
felt,     shaken.     unnerved;  his hands,
even,  were  noticeably  uiistiudy.

their claims upon his notice, und to
dwarf every other consideration. The
more he thought of them, the more

to their accomplishment which the
settlement of Alan's affairs might involve. It was a relief to him on inquiry that Mr. Anslerson, to whom
Alan's papers were to lie shewn, was
travelling on the Continent nnd likely to be absent for several days. T9m-

There nre so many things that a
horse can be taught to do, snys Success, that it Is hard to tell which to
seleet as best illustrating the methods
by which we tench them. The following, however, will furnish tbe key:
Take n pin In your hand, nnd, standing abreast of a horse's near shoulder, prick him lightly on tbe breast.
This resembles the bite of a fly. und
to drive off the nuisance be will bring
down his nose to his breast. Tbls you
accept us "Yes" and Immediately reward blm by feeding hlin u lump of
sugar or some otber trifle that be likes.
Repent the operation till he brings
down bis head at tbe slightest movement of your hand toward his breast.
By degrees you can substitute a simple
downward movement of the hand,
which Is less noticeable to an onlooker, but equally effective.
Standing In the same position, priek
him lightly with u pin on the top of his
neck. He will nt once shake his bead,
which Is accepted as "No;" then re-
wurd him as before. Repeat tbls until
be shakes his head nt the least upward
movement of the band. This signal.
as he learns his lesson more perfectly,
can be gradually lessened until It Is
very slight indeed. To say "Yes" or
"No" Is n very simple trick, uud yet
there is none thnt shows to better advantage. Of course when a horse litis
thoroughly learned to obey the Signals
yon ean usk him some questions and
then, by the motlou of your band,
make him say "Yes" or "No" its you
To teaeh a horse to shake bunds, fas
ten fl short strap to one fore foot below
the fetlock. Then, standing lu front of
the horse und having the strap In your
hand, say, "Shake hands." nnd Imine
dlntely pull up his foot and lake it lu
your hand. Then, still holding the root,
reward nnd caress blm exactly as you
would If he had given It to yrfn of his
own accord. Keep repeating the operation, being careful to reward him only
while his foot is in your baud. He will
very booh learn to give you bis foot
the moment you reach your hand toward It.
To teach a horse to lie down at a
word of command first select n good,
smooth piece of greensward, where he
will uot hurt himself. Harness him
wltb a surcingle and bridle and strap
up his off fore foot. A common breeching strap Is best for this, the short
loop iiround his foot between the fetlock and the hoof ami the long oue
around his forearm, l-'ntiten one end
of a strap to the near fore foot below
the fetlock, pass the other end up
through the surcingle and take It In
your right hand and the bridle rein In
your left hand. Push him slightly, and
the moment he steps pull sharply on
the strap.
This of course will bring him to his
knees. If he Is a horse of any spirit,
he will generally fight very pertlnn
eiously before he goes down: but. Iinv
Ing the use of only his two hind legs,
he Boon becomes wearied and rests
with his knees on the ground. Now
pull his head toward you. aud be will
full over the otber way.
Hold him down for some minutes,
menu while speaking to him very soothingly. Feed him lumps of sugar; In
fact, make as much as possible of him
while In this position. Then release
him and repeat tbe lesson. He soon
learns to lie down very readily, nnd
then you can omit strapping his off
fore foot Later you con also abandon
the use of the strap and surcingle by
taking his near foot ln your hand.
Then you can accomplish the pui'imse
by simply touching the near fore leg
witb your bund and tlnalty by a motion of your bnnd toward his leg.
You should always accompany the
signal by the command. "Lie down!"
Ily degrees he learns Its meaning, und
the signal can be dispensed with. If a
horse is large and strong, the trainer
must be cool, wide awake and alert;
otherwise be may make a botch of lt
nud injure the horse or himself or

evinced remarkable talent. At twelve

for the world the following lines to
show his own confidence In his destiny:

"On one occasion I employed this
property of soda ln a useful way.
There wss a large quantity of new

was only by detaching the fine fibres
from each other that you Identified the
