Filbert and Balmoral Were
Completely Devastated
last Tuesday.
The dread alarm of fire rang out at
3.45 p.m. on Tuesday. The Filbert
Hotel owned and managed by Messrs.
Bennett nnd Bruder, was in the grip
of the fire king. The fire, which is
supposed to have originated from over
heated furnace pipes, was first discovered
by Norman Hurlbert, a bartender, who
was off shift and was resting in bed.
He quickly perceived that the walls of
the bedroom wat in flames and he
immediately gave the alarm. The
flames quickly obtained' a grip on the
west end of the building, but not more
than four minutes after the alarm was
sounded, every available hydrant waa
open aud the hose pipes were in action.
Water waa copiously poured upon all
sides of the building. 8c. res of willing
workers, among whom were most of the
business men ot the city, proceeded
with tlie work of salvage. A big gang
tore down the fixtures of the well
appointed bar and reading room; another gang put forward all their energies
upon the well stocked cellar; while a
score of more men proceeded to save
tho valuable furniture, most of which
was on the s cond storey and in the
danger zone. At great personal ri��k
many ot the volunteers entered bed-
. rooms which were biasing furiously and
dragged out trunks, eic. With axe and
b.ir, men broke into locked rooms and
fought the fierce element until almost
The thermometer registered 20 below
zero on the outside, and it was the work
ol a hero to stand there hose in hand,
witli wearing apparel practically
encased in ice, but Sandon fighters are
no quitters under the most adverse
circumstances, and their pcrsoverance
and indomitable pluck were rewarded
in a measure. Despite the c >pious
supp'y of water which was directel at
the seat of the trouble, it continued to
gain mastery, and in an hour the roof
was burning fiercely. Then the flames
leaped to the adjoining hotel, the Balmoral, and quickly licked ita way
through four feet of snow and ice to the
woodwork, which was soin blazing like
matchwood. Salvage work then began
on theie premises, whice have been untenanted for some time, and the street
was littered with costly furniture.
At tlie end of two hours the roof fell in
but the firemen gave no let up. At
great risk to himself George Clark
c imbed a Udder and entered the bedroom of Miss O'Donnell in an endeavor
to a��cure her pocket-book, which waa in
a drawer of a bureau. He succeeded in
locating the bureau and dragged it
through Iho window, but a search
revealed no trace ot the wallit. Shoi tly
afterwards it was picked up in the snow
by Tony Mayhaver and restored to its
grateful owner. It contained over $700
in bills. Mi's Louise Schultze, was not
so foitunate. All her personal belongings, together with a considerable
amount of paper money went up in
smoke. . Although a great many trunks
belonging to the boarders wero saved,
there were many porforce left to feed
the flames, and many a miner who
fought like a demon to beat the dread
element, to day has nothing but the
���clothes lie stands in. The fire continued,
but with abated fury, thanks to the efforts
of the brave band of workers. Many of
these nun stuck to their posts with
hands and feet frozen. Borne were
pulled away unwillingly and surgically
treated. Otic man on the roof was enveloped in flame, but he asked for the
hose to bo turned upon htm and this
was done for a time; but the workers
realized that this was courting death,
and he waa literally dragged down.
This man was a Swede whose name we
could not ascertain. Pannikins of hot
coffee were served out by the wives of
citizens to the brave workers, and was
greatly appreciated. Others also at
their own expense, bought mitts and
handed them round. It was heroic,
although pitifu', the way the boys
kept up the onslaught under such trying circumstances, but their efforts
were eventually crowntd witli success.
It waB seen that nothing could save
the building, but by checking the fierce
advances of the flames, the long line of
business houses on the opposite side of
the street were immune Irom danger.
At midnight the building was still
burning, but the men had it well in
hand, and the backbone of King Fire
was breken.
In the morning what bad been one of
the finest equipped hotels lu the Kootenays was in ruins. Nothi'ig but a shrll
remained. Tha lower pari of the building was barely touched with fire; but.it
ia all an absolute wreck,     '
The loss to the proprietors is estimated
at $10,000, and the insurance will barely
cover one fourth of the losses. Many
personal effects of Mr. and Mrs. Bennett
were consumed, and the wardrobe of
the family was entirely burned. Some
gold rings and other jewellery were
picked np the following morning and
returned to the owners. The estimated
loss to the owners of the Balmoral hotel
is about $5,000.
���Chas. Isenor greatly distinguished
himself by a daring rescue. When the
flames were roaring their loudest he
rushed into the burning building and
grabbed the necks of two fallen friends.
Putty medal for Charles. He had rescued John Dewar aud Joe Seagram.
Surrounded by flames, Percy Johnston
stood on the burning roof and a ladder
long enough tor him to escape by not
to be had. Directing his friends to play
the hose on his body, he grasped the jet
and slid down it to safety. He's our
Every hotel man in town was on deck
and all worked like demons.
The section men of the C.P.R., under
the supervision of G. T. Moir, worked
like well drilled fire fighters.
To the Sandon volunteer Fire Brigade
all praise 1 Heroes every one! Scarcely'
a man in town was not down with a
severe cold the following day.
Hats off to all the workers. Their
unselfish efforts were another example
of sterling citizenship.
AU the fire-fighters were walking icebergs when they were through. Combatting fire under any conditions is bad,
but with 20 below zero butting in
aeainst them, their efforts were, to say
the least, heroical.
The proprietors have made arrangements to open uo the diring hall of the
Reco Hotel. Everybody would be
gratified to learn that " Billy " Bennett
was taking over and opening up th*s
famous hostelry. The Reco is one of
the finest hotels in British Columbia,
and a better host never lived than the
genial "Billy."
Liberal Tactics,
Perhaps never in the history of Canadian politics has Liberalism through
its leaders stood out so stragetically
malignant "Politics is politics," but
trutli needs no eloquent oaths to make
it prevail. The campaign speeches
tittered thus far by J. A. Macdonald and
\V. W. B. Mclnnes are in their entirety,
lacking nn outlined policy, and what
is lacking in this respect ia made up for
in an attempt to slander the late administration. To those who have had
no opportunity of digesting the report
of the select committee, appointed to
enquire into the acquisition ot Kaien
bland, the remarks of the leader of
the opposition will bo accepted as sworn
by tbe book, but "politics is polities"
and ho finds excuse in that aphorism to
lie like a Trojan and out Ananias Ananias. There is nothing sincere in Mr.
Macdonald'e recent utterance* other
than his natural desire to assume control
of the treasury. Mr. Macdonald may
be a smart lawyer,an able politician, or
an eloquent controversialist, but his
adherents guess wide of the mark if they
imagine truthfulness is added to his
The following is culled from the
Vancouver World, and is part of a
speech delivered in Nelson recently by
Mr. J. A. Macdonald.
"The premier had said that he did
not deal with a band of adventurers
in the Kaien Ia'and sale.   It had been
stated  that  Mrs.   Anderson's   name
had been  unfairly dragged into the
c mtroversy;  but   that was not so;
she h.id come into the story easily
and natural'}*.   Hon. R. F. Green had
stated at the parliamentary investigation that the terms of the secret order
in council which  had been held back
from the people's representatives, aud
the whole deal had been discussed by
him with Mrs. Anderson on tlie street
corners and naturally, Mrs. Anderson
became a party to the inquiry."
That is a lie which we challange Mr.
Macdonald, clever lawyer though he is,
to substantiate.   The leader of the opposition occupied   tlie  position of prosecuting counsel   throughout that investigation,  and  he  above all should
know that Mr. Green did   not state to
Mrs. Anderson the terms of  the secret
order-in-council.   As a matter of fact,
a member  of  the   Executive   Council
takes a most solemn oath, that he will
not divulge  the  proceedings  therein;
and at the above  mentioned investigation,  Mr.   Macdonald  knew that, yet
adroitly   endeavored    to    obtain   the
knowledge which he  now asserts Mr.
Green   gave Mrs.   Anderson,    If  Mr,
Green did  as is  suggested, he is not
fit to associate with honest men, and
should   forthwith   be  ostracised  from
society.   We do not prefer to think that
Mr.   Green  wantonly  broke  a  sacred
pledge and became a Judas,   We do not
prefer to imagine that the leader ot the
opposition  maliciously   lied   to  make
political capital of the point, but after
carefully perusing the published report
we are in conscience bound to come to
no other   conclusion  than the latter.
We have before us a copy of the Kaien
Island Investigation, and after perusing
tlie evidence of R.   F.  Green  on   the
point under discussion, the intelligent
elector will be left to   make his own
" Q���Mr. Anderson is a married man
Un't be ?   Mr. Green���I guess so."
" Q.���Yes. And his wife ia a pretty
good business woman, is she not? A.
I don't know whether she is or  not.
You are in aa good a position to answer
that question aa I am."
" Q���Do you think I am ? A.���Well,
we will leave it to you to answer."
" Q.���You know her very well? A
Yes.'I know her."
"Q.���And you know she ia a very
good business women ? A.���Mr. Macdonald, I want to say to you"���������
" Q.���(Interrupting)���Juet anawer my
question, Mr. Green. A.���I am not
going to answer your question, and I
appeal to this Committee to ask whether
this kind of cross examination has anything to do with this enquiry."
" Mr. Garden: I do not think it ia
very pertinent to the matters that we
are trying to arrive at. I, for one cannot see the bearing it has on it."
" Mr. Macdonald: I think it is aa
pertinent aa anything Mr. Anderson
might have to say."
"Mr. Green: If you want my opinion
of it, I think it is very impertinent on
your part to ask me such questions."
" Mr. Macdonald: I do not think you
have any right, Mr. Green, to come
here and make a statement of that kind.
Perhaps I will press this queation a
little further than I had first intended
if you continue in that tone. Now will
you anawer the question ? A.���I won't
answer the question."
"Q.���You aay you won't anawer it.
Well, all right; that is all I want. Now,
did you ever have any talk with Mrs.
Anderson about thia Kaien Island
matter? A.���No."
"Q.���Didyounot? A.���No."
" Q.���In any shape or form ? A.--
"Q.���And you knew'from her that
she and her husband were engaged in
this enterprise of getting* a terminus for
the Grand Trunk Pacific ? A.���I did
not know it from her."
Q.���You had never had any talk along
that line with her?   A.���No."..
" Q���Had ahe never given you any
hint of that ? A.���I do not know what
vou mean by giving me "any hint."
We never had any .conversation along
those lines."
" Q.���That directly or indirectly, she
and her husband were interested in this
Kaien Island?   A.   No."
In the Vancouver World of the 8th
inst., under,, tlie caption of "The
Macedonian Cry," the editor joins also
in the filth slinging tactics.
" The dismissal of Mr. Green was a
step toward success. He had been
guilty of tattling executive secrets to
unworthy persona who were not
members of the government. Mr.
Green is down and out. He has
passed from tlie public eye and, let
ua hope, into political oblivion. But
what about his colleagues ? Are they
to be given a renewal of public confidence ? They were aware of w hat
waa going on at the Lands and Works
for many months. They knew that
information which should not have
been confided to any one outside of
the "charmed circle" of tho executive,
waa confided to the " band of adventurers, male and female " who traded
upon and piofited by their knowledge
All this has been proved against Mr.
Green. It will be found recorded in
the minutes of the Kaieu Island committee's investigation."
The above effusion can be branded
but one way only; and the writer of
the above words, together with tho
leader of the opposition, are deliberately
lying for political gain.
The Investigation of the Kaien Island
Deal was in the hands of a committee
which was conceded by both factions
to be intelligently divided. As a member of that committee, Mr. Macdonald
coincided with the committee's report,
which was handed in after the investigation, and we ask Mr. Macdonald if ho
is as honest as he would have us wish,
to reconcile his recent uttered scurrilous
remarks with the report of the committee of which he was a member, from
which we cull the following.
" Your Committee find that the Executive Council refused to deal with
any intermediaries in the matter, but
stated that they would only deal direct
with the Railway Company."
There ia no need to go behind tbo
bush to aay that Mrs. James Anderson
is the woman intended by the term
"female." Mr. McDonald will hardly
deny that. Now, in the report of tho
evi Jence there is not one particle of evidence to show that she had anything
to do with, or even knew of the details.
The evidence is all to tiie contrary, in
fact. In the report of the minority her
influence or her participation are not
alleged except in the one defamatory
expression���" male and female." Her
name was only introduced in cross-examination by the leader of the opposition
to do damage by inference to the government���an artful trick of the man
learned in tlie law, calculated to tickle
the suggestive fancy of the gode, and
the wide open propensities of gossips,
but despised by those whose spirit of
fair play will not tolerate hitting an
opponent below the belt. Unless tlie
gentlemanly minority of that committee are prepared in an open and manly
fashion to allege an improper or any
association of Mrs. Anderson with the
transacteon which waa the subject of
enquiry, they had better had never attempted to deal in suggestions or inferences. It is the use of weapons forbidden in the code of honor among gentlemen in political or other warfare
Mayor Elected By
Concensus of Public Opinion
Is that J. R. Cameron
Is theJKlght Man.
John R. Canjeron waa elected by
acclamation, Mayor of the City of
Sandon for the ensuing twelve months,
on Monday laat, I It waa generally believed that several nominations would
be made and a Vecea-ary ballot held,
but this did not happen. Mr. Cameron
therefore, ib the man, and we are safe
in saying that lib election meets with
the heartiest approval of every one in
town. Fearless, outspoken and judicious, and possessing tact and sterling
businesB qualities, he will beat uphold
the dignity ol tint office. He was
nominated by Dr. W. E. Gomm and
Robt. Cunning.
Interviewed by our representative on
Monday night, Mr. Cameron said he
had nothing to Bay, but upon being
pressed for a message to tbe citizens he
opened up.
"You may tell tho public," he aaid,
" I hat my only reason for seeking election
ia to look niter tbe city's finances and
welfare. I shall use my utmost endeavor to curtail existing expenditure's
and foster the revenues. I have often
been presa-d to atand for the mayorality
but I have consistently refused my
friends. I have 'finally consented because I know the city has reached that
period when most careful handling of
its affairs are needed.
" Yes; I have had experience in municipal work hithctto. In 1881-2 8 I had
the honor of representing a ward in
Winnipeg as au alderman. My efforts
were then as they will be here, to
develop our revenue and depleto the
deficit. 1 put up a pretty stiff fight in
those diys, bwt. my efforts w< re rewarded eventually.; Up to that time in
not a -single instance had any public
works been completed for the estimated
contract price. In some instances it was
trebled. It was something new,
then, f ,r the people to. learn that the
police station was substantially constructed, and the fulfilments of tbe
contract rigidly enforced, and all within
tbe contract price.
I had then a flourishing tailoring business in Winnipeg, but I was determined
on seeking a mining experience an 1 is
accompanying attractions, antl afier
leaving my business in the care of my
nephew, I prospected around the Lnke
of the Woods for some time, but iu 1885
I heait d "tor British Columbia and
reached Three Forks shortly after.
Whilst in Winnipeg, I was also chair
man of the Licensed Police, and in the
absence of Colonel Peoples, stipendiary
magistrate, I always tilled his chair on
judicial bench.
I must say I am gratified at the
election of the new aldennanie board.
I believe tlicy are all progressive
men, and consequently we shall work
harmoniously together for the welfare
of the city.
Tiro newly elect**d Allermen arc
Messrs. S. J.Towgood, Dr. W. E. Gomm,
Win. Bennetf, Daniel Hurley, Geo
Waite and Ed. McLeod. E. A. Cameron
was also nominated, but rather than
put the city to the expenso of au
election, he declined to stand.
The election of School Trustees was
also by acclamation, and are as follows;
D. Mackenzie, E. R. Atherton, and

Mems.from Slocan Qity
From Our Own Corre9pcuide.it.
Win. Davidson, Socialist Candidate
for M.P.P., addressed a meeting here
Saturday evening, the 12th. The Conservative standard bearer, William
Hunter, of Silverton, and Liberal Candidate A. B. Docksteader, of Nelson,
also spoke.
The campaign is being actively carried on in Slocan, and the election pro
mises to be a hotly contested one.
The little daughter of D. St. Denis
was seriously ill with convulsions this
week. Dr. Bronse, of New Denver, attended the case, Hilda, the two-year
old daughter of George Smith suffered
an attack ol the same malady last Saturday.
J. Law who has been at home nursing
two badly cut fingers for some time, has
returned to the Arlington mine.
Mra. Mtiirhead, of Nakusp, is visiting
Mrs. Dugald here.
R. J. McPhee and D. St. Denis were
in Nelson Saturday.
The unprecedented cold weather is
still holding sway here. Frozen water
and drain pipes are giving householders
innch trouble. On Monday the thermometer at the Ottawa mine registered
10 degrees below zero, tbo coldest ever
recorclod in the camp.
The curlers held a meeting at the
rink on Saturday night, when some
eneible talk relative to the future of
the club was indulged in. A new
schedule was arranged and from now on
there'll be somethin' doin'. A game
played on Saturday nignt between rinks
skipped by L. Pratt and Geo. Ransom
ended in victory for Pratt by 13 to 12.
Manager Pratt, of tbe Last Chance,
left for a business trip to Victoria on
W. McClurg has taken over the insurance business lately conducted by E. M.
Rev. Fr. Jeannotte loft on Tuesday
for New Westminster. The journey ia
being made for the purpose of petitioning the bishop of the diocese, to aend
in another priest to attend to the many
stations throughout Slocan and Kaslo
divisions. Father Jeannotte, we believe,
is now serving 132 missions, and his
congregation feel that he is not equal to
the great task. It is therefore to be
hoped t!.at the request will ba granted.
The Sandon Curling Club have
authorized us to issue a challenge to
the Curlers ef Kaslo to play four or lesa
rinks. Lets hear from you, "Queen
New Denver holds its first masquerade
carnival in the skating rink on Saturday.
Ed. McLeod has just returned from a
trip to Nelson. He has a notion that
Nelson would be the better for some
Sandon blood infused into it. Too much
pork and not enough enterprise.
/ Fred Hulten returned from Spokane
last week. Mr. Hultn is the enterprising proprietor of the Miners'Hotel
here, and he is also the owner of the
Vega Hotel, Spokane. He has enough
confidence in the Sandon camp to
warrant his investing $2,000 in real
estate in Sandon, which he did this
week. Dull times doesn't satiate the
enterprise of some men,���a truth we
would like to bring home to a few who
have any misgivings as to the future of
our unequalled camp.

Cameron will in the very near future
open up a branch office of his tailoring
buMneea ut Kimlo. .T. R. is promessive
and enterprising, and what ia more, he
ia a first-class tailor.
A striking example of tbe value of
check assaying came to our notice recently. A syndicate of Sandon leasers two
months ago made a shipment of very
high grade ore to.a smelter and E. W.
Widdowton, .Provincial assayer, of Nelson, was instructed by the parties at
this end to assay samples and keep a
check. Returns from'smelter sampling
did not coincide with Mr. Widdowaon's
assays and protest was therefore entered.
Shortly after, Mea-rs. Le Doux & Co.,
of New York, were appointed umpires in
the rnattr. Their decision was in
favor of tiie Sandon syndicate, and Mr.
Widdowson is therefore to be eulogised
on bis success as a competent assayer
and one that wil attend to orders of
clients from a distance.

will participate, are now being held.
The itinerary is as follows: Nakusp,
Friday; Winlaw, Monday; Slocan City,
Tuesday; Silverton, Wednesday; New
Denver, Thursday; Burtoa City, Monday, transportation permitting.
s The streets the past few days have
assumed some of their old-time activity.
The large number of new arrivals to
work at the mines account for this.
Walker Smith left for Nelson yesterday to make arrangements for a large
shipment of coal.
After the political meeting last night
there was a hot time in the old town.
The candidates were not participants
in the fun.
t Tho weather for the past week was
not what might be called pleasant.
Twenty three below is enough lo go on
with, and we believe it constitutes a
record in these parts. Wandering
Willie Boy Mclnnis is reported to have
brought the frost from the Yukou.
The working men of the Slocan who
are up in arms against the invasion of
of Chinese should bear in mind that
this evil was endeavoured to be' re-
jmedied by constitutional legislation.
That question has been handled intelligently and diplomatically by the
MeBride government. That government, realizing the growth of the
Chinese octopus did something whi-h
every working man should gratefully
give them credit for. A prohibitive
head tax was put on Mongoliana, and

will see this old landmark once more in

Which was unprecedented in the annals
of Canadian legislature. He flatly refused to turn over a large section of pub-
licjands to a .railway corporation, and
the G.T.P. is consequently putting up
fighting funds for the return of a more
complaisant government. Mr. Morse,
representing the G.T.P. demanded from
our responsible government a mere
bagatelle of 15,000 acres of land for
every mileof railway built, also the necessary timber for building and atone for
bridges. If tho liberals are returned to
power the G.T.P. are in clover, but if
they ara kept out tlie province ia immune from land grabbers.
The hockey club played a practice

was to select a team to play a series of

Hunlei, Davidson, anil Docksteader Talk to A
Sandon Crowd.
The joint meeting of candidates wh<��
are out for election in this riding which
was hold in the Opera House on Thursday night, wss largoly attended. There
were a large number of ladies present.
S. J. Towgood waa voted to the chair,
and Messrs. Hunter. Davidson and
Docksteader were upon the platform.
The proceedings throughout were very
Win. Hunter, Conservative nominee,
was the first to address the meeting.
He spoko in a convincing way of the
splendid record of the late government.
He touched on the Kaien Island deal
and proved to the satisfaction of his
hearers that it was a good bargain for
the province. He characterised also
the Columbia-Western subsidy as a bad
deal, but the last government were not
responsible for that bill. He made a
dead set against bonusing railways or
any corporations, and was loudly applauded. /He told the electors he knew
the needs of the Slocan and if elected
he would take a pride in fighting for
those needs and otherwise following
their instructions. He wai not there,
he said, to drag any issues which did
not affect this district before their eyes.
His one ambition was to advance tho
country in which he had cast in his lot,
in which he had lived so long, and in
which he had invested his all, from its
temporary depression. He said that if
returned he would not follow the Conservative party blindly if the interests
of the Sloe ,n were likely to bo depreciated. When Mr. Hunter took his
seat asplendid ovation was given hirti.
Mr. A. B. Docksteader, after apologizing for being clumsy and slow, took
the centre of the stago and read his
little piece. Occasionally be indulged
in a few extempore flights of gallery
rhetoric, but the audience didn't respond
*o the hint fnr tiniilau e. nnd Is. wren
forthwith cutout. lie then remarked
that Socialists and Tories had put a job
up on him by rowing in the same boat,
and raised a titter by coughing up a
trifle re *' hauling down our flag." He
then analyzed the jKaien Island deal
in the good old lilx ral way, and trotted
out the inade-to-order campaign bluff
on the Colombia Western racket.
Most of hia remarks were uttered from
behind a ponderous volume, and n.
perceptible yawn from tbe audience
brought to him a timely hint. He then
paid his compliments to comrade
Davidson, and the audience sat up and
stretched their legs. His aim was true,
tut his mnd was too Gritty to stick.
Davidson's features slipped twice,
but both were sympathetic slips. He
told the audience he confidently expected to be elected, but a roar of
genuine laughter in answer, told him
that they appreciated the joke. "When
I'm elected,"  he tragically exclaimed,
" I'll " but a voice from the hotly of
Hie hall walled " That's fierce," and he
heap savvied that his deposit was down
among the dead men. The audience
waited patiently for an expoaition of
the Liberal Party's platform���they're
still waiting. Ho made a stab At
Socialists and Tories for crookedncsB,
but bo didn't say bow; paid a compliment to himself and Mr. Macdonald
for honesty; slashcl at a few things
which nobody eared anything about,
and he finished up by taking his seat
to tlie accompaniment of sympathetic
hand claps fiom a good old Sandon
audience who hated to aee a man in
Mr. Wm. Davidson then rose amidst
great applause. He first of all proceeded to dispose of hia " honorable
friend, Mr. Docksteader." That done,
be assailed both parties, and tried to
square himself for taking sides. The
audience acquiesced, and he passed on
togive the Liberals "bouquets " He then
told tbe audience that the " Western
Clarion" was tbe only newspaper
devoted to the interests of the working
men, and said Socialism was the only
means uf redemption for them. Ho
then handed out the ethics of that
religion as expounded by the editor of
the Western Clarion and a few Yankee
comrades with Herbert Spencer on the
side. Mr. Davidson was a whirlwind
whilst he was at it, and it took three
calls of "time" from the chairman
after his hour had elapsed to make him
quit. Comrade Davidson looked good
to a good many of the audience, and
rousing applause was bestowed upon
his effort.
A vote of thanks to the chairman concluded tbe meeting.
An unfortunate accident befell J. 1).
Maclnnea on Thursday night. After
leaving the political meeting with some
friends, he fell on the slippery sidewalk
and dislocated one of his ankles. THE SLOOAN   MINING   REVIEW.  SANDON.  B.  C.

nip in Europe just because she wus
careless in that particular. The friend
who was nsiiecl why she did not lake her
as a companion when she wanted company on a lour abroad answered: "Oh,
I cannot lake her: she always leaves the

A cursory glance iri a bath rmm ,e-

n does seem altogether unjust that decent people should be ohligeci to do
double duly in a bath room because seit-
respeol will not permit them lo follow a
bad precedent by likewise leaving the

"Well, ,1,-ar," sulci nn experienced old
lady, upon hearing sonic of these things
from a younger relative who was Jitsi
beginning In ��,. about In boarding
houses, "you will lind, ics vou journey

Half-baked Is n synonyir **or underbred or untrained, Ther* is no reason
why the half-baked class should remain
doughy. Those who have not had the
advantage of good examples nud training ai home can remedy ibe consequent
lack of propriety, If tiny desire to do so.
