We hope Mr.   Hodgson, in retirempnt, may enjoy many years yet of health and happiness  "These vacancies on the Board have been fille.1 by the appointment of Messrs. Andrew J. Dawes  and F.  Howard Wilt.on  "Your Directors and the General Manager have had under consideration for some time the advisability or asking your permission to chai^ge tbe termination of the financial year from the 30th November to the 30th April, as the general conditions in this country, in the Spring, are not so congested as  id the Autumn, when tbe pressure on the resouijces of Canadian Banks is at" its height. With this end  in view, an amendment to the By-Law will be 'suomltted for your consideration, changing the end of  the financial year to the 30th April, and changing the date of the Annual Meeting from the third  Wednesday in the month of December to the third Wednesday in the month of May.

"Supplementing this veport, I would like to Say I visited mc-l ot the Western Branches during the  past summer, accompanied -;y the YiCe-President .iud Mr. Long, -.yherre we &cquired a great deal of  additional information bearing upon our business and met a great'many of the customers of the  Bank and the staff. I may say that the trip was full of instruction and we returned with a very  much better knowledge of and acquaintance with jour extensive interests in the West than we have  had heretofore. We think we are safe in sayius that the business of the Bank is on a sound basl3  throughout the country. We were impressed witn the fact that the Bank is well reuresented at al!  _ oints, and the^ business is being capably handled. -  "We have much p easure in testifying to the continued excellent work of the staff In recognition  of which, and in view of the satisfactory results of the business for the past year and the strong re-  f refutations of the General Manager, the Board have^deeided to depart from the policy hitherto followed and have granted a bonus to the staff.

For an Instant she leaned against tbe fence, staring before her. then turned ond looked  back.     Behind  her  lay   the  land   on  which she had been born to drudgery  and a mother who made no pretense  6f loving ber.    Before her lay the city,  through   whose  schools  she hoped to  find means of escape and tbe way to.  reach tbe things for wblcb sbe cured.  When she thought of bow sbe looked  sbe leaned  more heavily  against the  fence and groaned.

Sbe approached the great stone high  school  building,  entered  bravely7aud  inquired ber way to tbe office of tbe  superintendent There sbe learned that  sbe should have come tbe week before  and arranged for her classes.���������  "I finished last spring at Brushwood  school,  district  No. 9,"  said   Elnora.  MI have been studying aii summer,   i  am quite sure 1 can do the first year  work If 1 have a few days to get  started."  "Of course, of course," assented the  superintendent.     "Almost   invariably  country pupils do  good   work.     You  may enter flrst year, and It you don't  fit we will find It out speedily.    Your  teacher- will tell you tbe list of books  you must have, and If you wiii couie  with me 1 will show you the way to  the auditorium.    It In now time for  opening exercises.   Take any seat you  find vacant"   Be was gooe.  Elnora   stood   before   tbe   entrance  and stared Into the largest room she  ever had seen.   The floor sloped down  to a yawning stage, on which a band  of musicians, grouped around a grand  piano, were toning their Instrumeuts.  Every one else was seated, but no one  paid any attention to the white raced  girl stumbling half blindly down tbo  aisle *oext the farthest wall.    So sbe  went on to the very end, facing, the  stage.   No one moved, arid she cohid  not RummoD courage to crowd .past  others to several empty seats she saw.  At the end Of the aisle she paused Id  desperation as .he stared back at the  whole foreat ot faces, most of which  were now turned up&n hor.  In one burning Hash came the full  realization  of  ner scanty  dress,  ber  pitiful iitiiu hat and rlbboc, her big.  heavy shoes; her Ignorance of where  to go.or wbot to do, and from a sick,  I'UlUK wiive which crept over hor she  felt she wits going to become very 111.  Tbi>n out of the mass she saw a pair  of  big brown   boy   eyes three  seats  from ber. nnd thero was n message In  thom.    Without moving ills body- he  reached  forward  and  wltb  a  pencil  touched tbe bn ok of the seat before  him.    Ihstnutly  Elnora took another  wtop. which" brought hor to a row of  vacant front scats.  Bin-  heard   tbo  giggle  behind  hor.  The knowledge tbat sho woro the only  tint In tlio room burned, her.    Every  mutter ot moment uiul some of none  nt nil  cut and  stung.    Sho  hnd  no  books.

"Would vou  tell me where tbe freshmen are?" she  panted.  ' "Straight down the hall, three doors  to your left" was the answer as the  gfr4 passed.  "One minute, please���������oh, pleasel" begged Elnora. "Do t knock or just open  the door?"  "Go In and take a seat'" replied the  teacher.  "What if there aren't any seats?"  gasped Elnora.  "Classrooms are never half filled.  There will be plenty." wu_ the answer "  Elnora removed her hat* There- was  no place to put it so sbe carried it In  her hand. Sbe looked inflnitely better without it After several eSorts  .she at last opened the door and* stepping inside, faced a smaller and more  concentrated battery of eyes.  "Be seated." said the professor in  charge of the class, and iheut, because  he saw Elnora was desperately embarrassed, he proceeded to tend ber a  book and to ask her if sbe ha d studied  algebra. She said sbe bad a little, but  net the same book they -were using.  He asked her if she felt tbat-she could  cU the work they were beginning, and  she said she-did.  That was how it happened tbat thre<>  minutes after  entering tho room  she  was compelled to T.*iKt������ her p'lare at the  lilackboard beside ine glrl"������r lhe hall,  whose   tlusbe.l   rat-i-   and   nng-Ty   eyes  avoided..meeting'- l.luora's.

I  When the hour was gone the class  died back to the study room, and minora followed in desperation because  she did not know where else to go.  She could not study es sbe had no  books, and when t_e class again left  the room to go to another professor  for the next recitation she went also.  At least they could put her out if she  did not belong there. Noon came at  last, and she kept with the others until they dispersed on the sidewalk.  She 'was so abnormally self conscious  she fancied alt the hundreds of that  laughing throng saw and jested at  her. When sbe passed the brown eyed  boy walking with tlie girl of ber encounter she knew, for she heard him  say, "Did yoa really let that gawky  piece of calico get ahead of you f The | ton.  answer was indistinct-.  After noon she returned to tbe high  -cuooi. foiiowed some other pupiis to  the coatroom, bnng her hat and found  ber way to the study where she had  been in the morning. Twice that.afternoon with nching bend she faced  strange professors in different branches. Once she escaped notice, the second time the worst happened. She  was asked n question she could, not  answer.  "Have you not decided on your  course and secured your books?" inquired the professor.  "1 have decided on-my course." replied Elnora: "l do not know who to  ask'for my boobs."  "Ask?" the professor was bewildered.  "1  understood  the  books  were furnished." faltered Elnora.  "Only to those bringing an order  from tbe township trustee," replied the  professor.  "No! Oh. no!" cried Elnora. "1 will  get them tomorrow." and gripped her  desk for support, for^she knew that  was not true. Four books, ranging,  perhaps at u dollar nnd a half apiece!  Would her mother get them? Of  course she would not. could not.  Old not Elnora know the story by  heart? There was enough land, but no  one to do clearing and farm. Tax on  all those acres, recently the new gravel  road tns added/the expense of living  and?only, the work of two women to  meet all of It. She was Insane to think  she could come to the city to, school.  Her mother had been right. The girl  decided that tf ouly she lived to get  home she would ststy there and lend  uny son of life to avoid more of this  torture. Bad us what she wished to  eucnpe hnd been, it was nothing like  this. She never could live down the  movement that went through the class  when st������o Inadvertently revealed the  fact thnt she hnd expected her bookn  to be furnished, tier mother would  not get them. Tbut settled the question.  But the end, of misery Is never In n  hurry to como. for before the day was  over the superintendent entered the  room and explained that pupils from  the country were charged a tuition of  $20 n year. That really was the end.  Previously Elnora had canvassed a  dozen wjld pluns for securing the money for books ranging all the wuy from,,  offering to wash the superintendent's  dishes to breaking Into the bunk. TblH  additional expense nuido tho thing so  wildly impossible thero was nothing to  do but hold up tier bend until nh������ whs  out of sight.   (To boooptinucd)  Long Start.
