106 ballots.    Texada had no spoilt^
ballots.    Texada had 110 vote challenged by either party to   the conflict     Texada   had   no voter   that
could not   jead.    Texada   had   nos
ballot that could not   be said to be
legibly and comprehensibly marked.
Texada had no   difference amongst
its agents   nor   officers   when  the
ballot box was closed."
Texada has certainly done herself psoud in the matter. .The cause
for wonderment is. that voters of

JBy OUTOLIFTE HYNE.  *    ,   TCopyrlsrht. 1S9S. by the Author.]  Cortolvin came out under the bridge  clock awning, up through the baking  heat of the companiouway, and dropped'  listleFfly into a deck chair. Ho was  dresecd in Flop chest pyjamas of a vivid  pattern and had a newly shaven chin,  which stood out refreshingly white  ������gainst the rest of his sun darkened conn-'  teuanco.  "Well." said Captain Kettle as he  shoved across tbe box of cheroots, "are  wo any nearer getting under way?"  "I looked in at tbe engine room as I  came post," said the tall man, with ������  laugh, "and the chief had a good deal  to say. I gathered it was his idea that  tho fellow who last had charge of those  engines ought to dio'a cruel and lingering.death. "  "It's a sorepdPSnt with MoTodd when  ���������she breaks down. .But did he eay how  Jong it would bo before ho could give  her steam? I'm a bit anxious. The glass  is tumbling hand over fist, and, what  with that and this heat, there's small  iloubt but what we'll have a tornado  'dattering abont our ears . directly.  There's the shore close aboard, as you  can seo for yourself, and if the wind  conies away anywhere from the east'ard  it'll blow this old steamboat half way  into tho middle of Africa before we can  look uround us. Jfc'8 a bad season just  cow for tornadoes.-"  Tho clattering, of iron boot plates  made itself heard on the brass bound  step of 'the oompanionway. "That'll  be the chief coming to answer for himself," said Cortolvin.  Mr. Neil Angus  McTodd always advertised his calliug in the attire of  his  -outward man, and the eye of an expert  ���������could  tell with   sureness at any given  moment whether  Mr. McTodd  was  in  - 'employment  or not, and,  if  so, what  ' typo of steamboat he was on, what was  his official  position, what was  his pay  aud wbat was tho last   bit of  work on  , which "he had been employed.  The present was the fourth occasion   on which  >tbe Saigon's  machinery had chosen' to  'break  down  during  Captain   Kettle's  "  -two months of. command, and after his  herculean efforts in making repairs with  ���������insufficient staff and materials. .Mr. MoTodd was unpleasant both to look upon  ���������and associate with.   He was attired in  moist black boots, gray flannel pyjamas  trousers Bluffed into his socks, a weird  ���������gj/rmeut of flannel upon his upper man,  a clout round his neck and a peaked cap  , "upon his grizzled red hair anointed with  years of spraying oil.    His elbows and  his forehead shone like dull" mirrors of  steel, and he carried one of his thumbs  wrapped  up   in a   grimy crimson rag..  Hia conversation was  full of  unnecessary adjectives, and ho was inclined to  take u  cantankerous view of   the  universe.   '^Chey'd disgrace the scrap heap  of  any decent  yard, would  the things  they miscall engines on this rotten tub, "  jsaid ho by way of preface.  *'   "They are holy engines, and that's a  ffaci," said Kettle.   "How long can yon  ���������guarantee them for this timo?"  . The  engineer mopped his neck with  *a wad   of  cotton waste.    "Ten  revolutions, if ye wish me to be certain.    It's  ia verra dry ship, this."  "Aud  how   many  more?   We  shall  ^want them.    There's a tornado coming  ���������on."  f- "I'm no' anxious to perjure  mysol',  we're goingto," and enveloped the dose  with a dexterous turn of the wrist,  after which ambiguous toast he,wiped  his lips with cotton waste and took himself off again to the baking regions be-  ,low, and presently a dull rumbling and  a tremor of her fa brio arinbun'ce'dthat  the Saigon was once more under way.  The   little   steamer   had   coaled  at  Perim island, in -the southern month of  tbe Red sea, had come out into the Indian ooean through the strait of Bab el  Mandeb, had  rounded  Cape Guardafui  and was on her way down to Zanzibar  iu r"^nBp to  the cabled orders of  her  Parsee owners  in   Bombay.    Cortolvin  was still on board as passenger.  His excuse was that  ho wanted to inspect the  island   and   city of -Zanzibar before returning to England "and respectability. '���������  His real reason was that he had taken a..  fancy to   the little ruffian of  a skipper  and wished to see more of him.  "Cheerful toast, that of McTodd's,"  said Cortolvin.  "Those engines are enough to discourage any man, "said Kettle, "and the  beat down there would sour the temper  of an archangel."  Cortolvin loosened a couple of buttons  of his pyjamas and bared his chest.  "It's hard to   breathe  even here, and I  "captain, but they might run on for a  ���������full minute or they might run on'for~a  ���������day. There's a capriciou'sness about the  ���������rattletraps that might amuse some  {people, but it does not appeal tome.'  I'm in fear of my life every minute I  stand on tho footplate."  "I'd not have taken yon for a frightened man."  "I'm not that as a usual thing, but  thei'temperaturo of yon engine room  varies between 120 and 180 degrees of  the Fahrenheit soale, and it's destroying  to the nerves. All the aqueous vapor  Jeaves the system, and I'm verra badly  in need of a tonio. Is yon whisky iu  the black bottle, captain?"  "Take a peg. Mac."  "I'll just have a sma' three fingers  'how ye mention it." Ho laid the thickest part of his knotty knuckles against  ���������tho side of  the tumbler and poured out  Ahead of him  the  great slate colored  liner lay motionless.  -some half gill of spirits.  "Weel," said  he, "may we get as good whisky where  thought-I'd learned what heat was in  those Arabian deserts.- There's a tornado coming on; that's certain."  "It will clear the air, " said Kettle.  "But it will he a sneezer when we get  it. Mr. Murgatroydl" he oalled.    . -.���������  The old grizzle beaded .mate thrust  down a purple face from the bead of  tbe upper bridge ladder. "Aye, ay,e!". ���������  "Get all the awnings off her,". the  shipmaster ordered. "Put extra grips  on the boats and see everything lashed  fast that a steam crane could move.  We're in for a bad breeze directly."  "Aye, aye!" rumbled the mate and  clapped a leaden whistle to his mouth  and blew it shrilly. A minute later he  reported: "A big steamer lying tocjust  a point or two off tbe starboard bow,  captain. I haven't seen her before because of the haze. " He" examined her  'carefully through the bridge binoculars  and gave his observations with heavy  deliberation: "She's square rigged for-  rard and has a black funnel with a red  band���������no, two red bands. Seems to me  like one'of the German Mail boats, and  I should.say she was broke down."  Captain  Kettle'rose springily from,  bis deck chair  and swung himself into  the upper bridge.    Cortolvin followed.   '  A mist  of  heat shut the sea into a  . narrow ring.  Overhead was a heavy purple darkness, impenetrable  as a.ceiling  of   briok.    The only light that crept in  carne from the mysterious' unseen plain  of the horizon.  From every point of the  compass uneasy thunder gave forth now  and then a stifled bellow, and, though  the  lightning   splashes never showed,'  sudden   thinnings of the gloom would  hint at their nearness.   The air shimmered   and  danced   with   the   baking  .heat, and, though lurid grays and pinks  predominated, the glow which filled it  was constantly changing in hue.  The scene was terrifying, but Kettle  regarded it with a satisfied'smile. The  one commercial prayer of the shipmaster is to meet with a passenger steamer  at sea broken down and requiring a  tow, and here was' one of the plums of  the ocean ready to hia hand and anxious  to be plucked. The worse the weather  the greater would be the salvage, and  Captain .Kettle could have hugged himself with joy when he thought of the  tropical hurricane's nearness. He had  changed the Saigon's course the instant  he came on the bridge and' had pulled  the siren string and. hooted,cheerfully  "into the throbbing'air to' announce his  coming. 'The spectral -Bteanjerf:;.grew  every moment more clear, and presently  a string of barbaric cdlors jerked up to  cthe wire span between her masts. There  was no breath of wind to make the flags  blow out. They hung' in'dejected cowls,  but to Kettle, they read like,the page of  an open book.    . ���������'������������������"  "P. B. Q. !���������*���������" he cried, and clapped  the binooulars back in the box and  snapped down the lid. "P. B. Q., Mr.  Cortolvin,, and. don't you forget having  seen it. I Have broken lny machinery'���������  that means 'I want immediate assistance.' "   '   ..      .; ;_;-.-....[  "You seem to know it by heart," taid  Cortolvin.    '    "    ������������������      '   "'���������"��������� ' '  "There's not a steamboat,officer on  all the seas that doesn't. When things  are very down with ns, we take out the  Eignal book and hunt up P. B. Q. and  tell oursolves that'shine' day we'may  come across aCuuarder in.'a broken tail  shaft and be able to give up the sea and  bo living politely oh ������20'0 av'":year,''well '���������  invested, within a fortnight. It's, tho  steamboat officer's . dream, sir, but  there's few of us ifc comes truo for."/  "Skipper," said Cortolvin, "I need-  not toll you how pleased I'll be if you  come into a competence over this business. In the meanwhile, if there's anything I can do, from coal trimming upward, I'm your most obedient servant.1'  "I thank you, sir, " said Kettle, "and  if you'd go and carry the news to the  chief I'll be obliged. I know ho'll say  his engines can't hold out. Tell him  they must. Tell him to use up anything  he has sooner than get another breakdown. Tell him to rip up his soul for  struts and backstays if he thinks it'll  keep them running. It's the one chance  of my life, Mr. Cortolvin, and the ono  chance of his, and he's got to know it,  and see we aren't robbed of what is pub  before us. Show him where the siller  comes in, sir, and then stand by and  you'll see Mr. McTodd work miracles."  Cortolvin went below, and Kettle  turned to tbe old mate.- "Mr. Murgatroyd," said he, "get a dozen hands to  rouse np that new manilla out of the  store. I take you from the foredeck and  give you the after deck to yourself. I'll  have "to bargain with that fellow over  there before we do anything, and there  will be little enough time left after  we've fixed upon prices. So have everything ready to begin to tow. We'll use  their wire."  "Aye, ayol" said the mater "But it  won't do to tow with, wire, captain,  through what's coming. There's no give  in wire. A wire hawser would jerk the  gnta out of her in 15 minutes."  Kettle tightened his lips.   "Mr. Murgatroyd, " said   he, "I am not a blame  tool.   Neither do I want dictation from  "my officers.    I told yon to rouse up the  manilla..'You will back'the wire with a  .double bridle of that."  "Aye, aye I" grunted the mate. "But  what am I to mako fast to? Them bollards aft might be stepped in putty for  all the use they are. They'd not tow a  rowboat through what's coming. I believe they'd draw if they'd a fishing  line made fast to thorn.

Jewelry Fashion*.  In Elsie Bee's fashions in Jewelers'  Circular occur the following:  Elegant bits of usefulness for milady's toilet are silk stocking supporters  with gold mountings either plain or  chased. -^  One tiny turquoise serving as a button on a gray or tan purse of chamois  shows the daintiness which even a  touch of this stone can impart  The heavy chain bracelet is now  modified by the addition of gems. Into  one attractive bracelet are introduced  rings set with pearls.  iadies' watches seem about equally  divided between the important and  conspicuous chatelaine and the tiny  'timepiece attached to a long chain. .  Unusual cuttings, such .as ovals,  heart shapes, etc., occur in the costliest  white and yellow diamonds, the mounting being invisible.  Round cut opals .now form necklaces  after the fashion of the coral and amber kinds.  In cluster earrings a, turquoise set  with brilliants is a favorite design.  Maple Suprnr nnd  Walnut Creams.

Cooking on the  high seas isn't so exciting a profession as it was in the old  days, but even now it'presents'problems  and situations that would drive n landsman chef to despair.  It is one thing to sit  down iu dignified calm in a hotel kitchen  and compose a symphonic entree, and it's  quite    another   thing   to, clutch  a   rope,  swung across a kitchen that is trying' to  turn'turtle and to master un entree that  is attempting*to dance a cancan on lop  of a plunging range.   It would beta'happy thing for stewards and cooks if .every  disgruntled passenger on a transatlantic  steamer   could,   in    rough   weatlier,    be  forced  to  pay a visit to the gajley  and  w������Uch   the  efforts   by  which   the   meals  with which he has been finding fault are  prepared.   The chances are that two minutes amid the fumes and heat of the galley would reduce him- to a state of seasickness which would rob him of all interest in meals of any sort, but if he could  wait long enough to receive a few mental  impressions   he   would   climb   the  galley  stairs a humble and contrite traveler and  accept food fit to eat as a miracle'wrought  in his -behalf.  On the modern steamers galley arrangements have been improved to a degree  that would make an old time sea cook  open his eyes in amazement, but even  under such conditions the cooking is difficult work. In the first place, room is necessarily limited, and every inch of space  must be made to count, yet a large number of cooks and assistants are employed.  One of the large steamers will have 30  men at w,ork in its galley, and 30 men  playing leapfrog about a microscopic  kitchen and doing juggling feats with  pots and pans and knives and rolling  pins while tbe ship stands on its beam  ends is a sight to bring tears to the eyes  of a lover of a quiet life.  In these narrow, quarters cooking: is  done on-a scale larger than the ordinary  saloon passenger .realizes. The crew  must be fed in port- and out. So the  cooks have from 500 to GOO men on their  hands every day of the year. Then during the, voyage the steerage, second cabin  and first cabin must be provided for. The  steerage passengers do'not have*.an elaborate bill'of fare.' but about 3.000 small  loaves of bread, aie baked for the crew  arid steerage every day, and^that-in itself  is no small task. ' <   "  ���������    The  very sight of .the  baker's dough  trough^ is enough to, discourage a  faint  hearted" cook, for flour is dumped into it  by  the "..barrel."   One   hundred   and   fifty  .barrels of flour melt away on a voyage  like  spring  snow'Hakes,'  and  20  tons   of  potatoes   dance; merrily   up   the   galley  stairs to table hand in hand with 20.000  pounds oft:beef. while' 10,000 eggs, more  or less seasick, follow wearily. , Thou loO.  gallons of fresh milk scorn the 1.000 gallons of condensed  milk  stored' beside  it  aud advise the 1,000 pounds of coffee to  have nothing to do with-it.,  The ghosts  of countless chickens, turkeys, ducks and  fishes    haunt    the    larder    where   their  slaughtered bodies hang iD hundreds at a  time.    As for the incidentals, no one but  the head steward knows the tale of them.  Imagine **all   this   food   prepared   in   an  apartment   house   kitchen    addicted    to  handsprings, and you  have the steamer  galley situation.  Along the end of the room run the  ranges. The ovens are divided into compartments which will hold firmly pans of  varying sizes. On top of the stoves a  steel bar runs along the front and back,  and separate crossbars may be clamped  to these at convenient intervals. Pots  and kettles are hemmed "in in this way,'  and to add to their firmness each is  clamped to a crossbar with what looks  like a large iron clothespin. A>11 cooking  utensils are made much deeper than  would be necessary in ordinary cooking  ���������in .order to avoid spilling of the contents  in case of rough weather. The huge  copper stock pots iu which wholesale  boiling is done are heated by steam, and  all. broiling is done over an immense'  charcoal fire. The bakers have a separate cubby hole and ovens'for themselves;  and beyond them is a cold room, where  confections and pastry are made.  ittverytmng is swept and garnished in at  fashion to' satisfy the heart of a' Dutch  housewife. The copper ��������� shines resplendent���������but the smells! Ye gods, the smells!  Let the seasick man who has held his  breath and plunged madly up the companion way to escape the deadly whiff of  air coming from the galley imagine-.that  gust of odor intensified, concentrated;  mixed with steam and smoke and multiplied by four, and he may have some  idea- of the atmosphere down, in the gal-'  ley.  , A steamer kitchen is no place-for any  one with a tendency toward seasickness,  and the first few voyages of a young  cook's assistant are tortures. There isn't  any fine glow of majesty about his martyrdom, and he doesn't get an - atom of  sympathy. His galley mates ��������� guy him.  and his superiors bully him. He sounds a  depth of seasickness beside which the  state of Mie groaning passenger on deck  in a steamer chair .is rose colored and'  agreeable.������ Often one .voyage is all that  he'ean stand, and he bolts incontinently  when the ship reaches port, but if he has  the courage, to suffer until he is thoroughly-seasoned he overcomes his qualms  and is ready to laugh at the next green  hand.       x ' ,       .  Few   accidents   occur   in   the   steamer  galleys nowadays, when innumerable patents and safeguards are employed.   Once,  in awhile a stock pot blows up from too  much steam pressure; or a careless or unskilled.cook is cut or'burned or scalded,  but   such ��������� cases   are   rare.    Ropes   are  stretched across in  front of the ranges,  and when'the ship is plunging badly the '  ' cooks   hold   these   ropes   while   working -  over the fire.   Fortunately for the work- "  ers in the galley,  when  the weather is "  very rough a large percentage of the passengers,lose their interest in food, so the '  work of the cooks is lessened,  and this  fact  offsets  the  added   difficulty  in   tbe  preparation  of the  food. , The .galley . is ,  separated'from the rest-of the boat by':  'water tight doors and can be shut off'so  securely that it is practically impossible;  except. in  case of  serious accident, .'for  water to reach the fires and put a stop to  culinary proceedings.

The French workman is the creature  of the street for the. sense,of the joy  of life and the creature of the home ,  and the workshop for the sense of the ."  hardship and sometimes of the sorrow.

In the United  States, a Prom nent Lawyer, Journalist, and   Politician, Ih������  Victim of Kidney and Liver Disorders, Now Proclaims to All the  World the Wonderful Merits Vf J)r.Chase's Kidney-Liver  Tills,   the   Comforters   of   His  Old   Age.  n  With tho single exception of Dr.  Oronhyatekha, no leader among the  Foresters is more popular than Col.  A. B. Caldwell, of Syracuse, N.Y.,  who is familiarly known in the Order  as "father."  As the founder of the Independent  Order of Foresters in the United States,  as a prominent lawyer, journalist, and  politician, and through his efforts in  organizing the National Guard under  Governor Seymour, his reputation has  become national.  To his many friends throughout the  length and breadth of the land and to  all sufferers the world over, Col. Caldwell, proclaims the merits of Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, which have  proven so wonderfully efficacious in  curing him of kidney ailments, torpid  liver and constipation.  Over his own signature Col. Caldwell  writes as follows:  "For the good of tho community I  volunteer this testimonial to the value  of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. I  used them for nearly one year for kidney disoiders, torpid liver,and constipation, and I can say that I never before  met with such a mild and efficacious  laxative. I take one pill a day before  retiring, and the effect is wonderful'in  producing calm repose, excellent appetite, and good digestion. I am how  73 years of age, and look upon Dr.  Chase's medicines as the companions  and comforters of my latter days."  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills are  famous the world over. They are endorsed by the best physicians, recommended by. prominent people in all  walks of life, and have the largest sale  of any similar remedy in Canada or the  United States.

to be a Topsy or a Dinah. I knew
what they meant, but I didn't mean to
let them know it. So they went on
with the examination, an what do you
think they found but a piece of Canadian wire a foot long. That poor
old critter, starvin on baled hay, had
chanked down an swallowed that wire,

of moldings in black. Many of those
colored moldings are plain in design, and
there are among them many, that are
odd. And then there are many of the

Of gilded picture frame moldings the

are gilded with gold, some with a lacquer laid on over silver leaf and some
are.gilded with a cheaper material.

.altogether, are produced in thousands
of styles, and new styles are constantly
being added, these being put ou the market twice a year, for the spring and fall

hundreds of styles would still produce
more or, less new, styles, 20. perhaps, or
40 each season. 'But for all the great

No Bntler For Him.
There is' a wealthy but very hard!
headed citizen of Detroit who has no-
hesitancy in telling this story on himself:
"If there's anything on earth grinds
me it is to plunge into the social swim.
I'd far rather plunge into an ice cold
bath. One of these here steel pen coats
makes me want to go out and hide in
the hayloft, and a standin collar puts
me into a grouch for a week after I've
worn it.
"But you   know     how   women  are. .
They'll'stand, right by you when livin
is up hill work, skimp, hustle and save,
but once they get money they want a
show for it. and the bigger the show
the better. Things sorter come my way
in pine, and I cleaned up a neat little
pile.    I    just    grinned    at    carriages,,,
horses, a coachman, a lot of servants a
snookini round  the  house,  receptions,'.
theater  parties  and   all   thatr sort,)of
thing. '     .
"But when they rung in a genuine
butler on me I had a warm conversation with mamma and the girls. It
didn't.do a mite of good. They talked
me clean off ray feet, and the butler
came. I could have got away passably'
with the president of the United States,
but that fellow, stiff backed, high headed, looking superiorlike and , never
sniilin 'less it was to stab you, riled
me awful. One day while sittin iu the
library I heard hiin tell one of. the
maids ho wnsgoin to resign. 'What
for?' she asked. 'The last lady as -

Flowers In Mexico.
The flowers of,the City of Mexico are
one of its chief delights. Roses, violets,
forgetmenots, marguerites and . lilies
bloom all the year round. There are few
weeks when a quarter will not buy a
splendid big bunch and when a silver dollar will not till the vases iu the house to
overflowing. Flowers are'sold not only
at the flower market near the cathedral,
that is devoted entirely to flowers, strawberries and birds, but at the other general market and on the street corners.
The "flower girls" of the capital are all
boys and men. At some places in Mexico, particularly Guadalajara, little girls
are to be scon on the streets all day and
in the evening offering boutonnieres for
which they will not set a price, but ask
you to give what yoii please. It is hard
to find .a flower on sale anywhere after
midday. ��� The flower seller makes up bouquets in the most artistic fashion. The
street venders never sell loose cut Doners, but arrange them upon a' basework
of green so that each flower stands by
itself, and the whole bunch is prettily
finished with a garniture of green leaves
or ferns. Set pieces are also arranged
with a fine sense of taste and regard for
colors. A pansy wreath throe feet across
can frequently be purchased at the market for'$l.
Flowers are very generally used nt funerals, and it is not an unusual sight, to
sec a casket;, even, of'one-of the pobrer
class, completely covered with flowers,
wreaths, crosses-and baskets in bewildering array, as it is hurried through the
crowded thoroughfares upon an open
street.-': '
'    Charlotte Bronte Not'Flattered.',
An interesting anecdote of Charlotte
Bronte is. recalled  by Mrs; Humphry   ���
Ward in her biographical introduction ,
to . "Vilette."    In  1851  the authoress,
having refused repeated invitations to

When it was oyer, Thackeray, who

JWarlboronjLrrh  the Traitor.
Of all the traitors the worst was Marlborough,   who.   to. buy 'a   pardon   from
James,   betrayed   to   him   the   expedition
against Brest, causing thereby the failure
of  the expedition  and   the death  of  the
gallant   Talmash.   its   commander.      No
other British soldier has been guilty of a
crime so foul.    Excuses are vain.     It  is
said that other traitors had given the information   before   Marlborough.     Unless
he knew it this makes no defense, and if
���ho did know it he was bound to warn tho
government.     He   we.ll   deserved   to   be
shot, or rather to be hanged.    His apologists had better leave his case alone and
let his political infamy be lost as far as it
may. in   his  military  glory.     He  was  a
man,    like   Napoleon,    devoid    of   moral
sense.    If he ever had any. he must have
left it in the antechambers of Charles II.

P. T. Barnnm's propensity for practical joking 'began 'early to assert itself.
Once a man was on trial in a local
court for a small misdemeanor. ' Learning that lie had no money to hire a lawyer, Barnum offered'to conduct his defense. With great solemnity he made
a lengthy plea in which be virtually
accused his client of being guilty of
half the crimes on the calendar, ending with a ���recommendation to the mercy, of the court on the ground of unsound mind.
The man, though escaping with a
merely nominal sentence, was furious
at the trick that had been played on
him. He. was finally appeased by Bar-
num's explanation that'he. had prepared a defense for two different clients and had in his case delivered the
wrong plea.���Maitland Leroy Osborne

Where If all Dresscsu Are Mrt.de.  -    11 seems that the lady members of tbe  ��������� lialocracy run just the same risk as dc  the gentlemen, of infection from thoir  wearing apparel.     Their grand dinnur  dresses,   recherche   walking   costumes  and delicate morning roues���������even theij  bridal wreathes and beaded hall slipper;-  are frequently made in the most miserable dens.     A reporter has been hiving  a chat with a lady who at one tince was  empkryed by a noted West end costumier.  ' 'Many a titled dame would Tjositivcly  shudder,"  she exclaimed,  "if* she saw  the poor, half-starved, ill-clad creatures  who have the making of her finery."  "Do court dressmakers, then, ' like  fashionable tailors, employ outside  hands?"'  "Yes, all do more or less,  especially  the smaller firms.    Indeed, many of the  so-called court dressmakers, whose places?  of business consist of swell flats or draw  ingroom floors,   really  do little oi ik  work on the premises.    They 'fit' ladiet  cwtaifily, but as often as not the mater,  lal is made up in the most wretchud  Mums by women who can scarcely e&rr:  enough to keep body, and soul together  For instance, ni a case I know of, aduch  ess ordered  a  wedding costume i'-av a  . uertain date.    The linings were made by '  the firm, but the material for the bodice  was given to one outside hand and that  .���������)f the skirt to another.     Much to her  ladyship's chagrin, the costume was not  ready   by the  day appointed.      Now.  what was the i-eal reason?    It was that  the poor woman who had been entrusted  with tho making of tho bodice had suddenly died of sheer worry and starvation.  She was found lying on her old four-  post-bedstead in a little back room in  Marylebone, with the half-finished garment grasped in her hand."  "Is the pay of these outside hands ao  rery small then?"  "Yes, in. the majority of cases. The  court dress makers take good care to'  have nearly every farthing of the large  profits for themselves.. The middle hand  gets no more, than if she were employed  0*1 the most common work, yet so trying  te their occupation that I have often -  known women to go'���������blind or into consumption over it.' Even when constantly employed they cannot earn more than  10 shillings or 12 shillings a week, 'and  out of thi* paltry snm they have to find  their own twist or co'tton.' So poor are  they, indeed, that it is quite a common  thing lor them to get 'dolly shop' keepers  to advance small sums on the matoviajt  for ono job till ihe.y have executed and  been paid for another.','  "I take it that all this applies to the  annill firms only?"  ' "Yes, mainly to those people who call*  themselves  'Madames'   or  -Mesdames.'  Bur. it amounts to much the same thing  even in the. case  of the, largest   court  dressmakers.    Onco 'they,give out work  thoy cannot tell for certain where it is  made .up.    They may give it to A, thinking that she does it" at home, but very  often A,' for  the sake of extra profit,  gives it to B,   and B .may give it to C  tome poor creature living in the depth  of squalor.    It is just the same with ball  dhotis und'bridal wreafhs. '"The former  are. in vary many instunces, ornament  pd   amidst   tlie   most   urisanitary ' sur-  rbimdings;   tho   latter   are   made rand  tuou7>Ti'd in places oq ually unhealthy and .  miserable.    The only remedy i'or the evil  -\,s to uv.ke it ilVgal for firm's to give out  ������vcv)r a'i nil. Arii;, is. the servant is much  safer than her mistross.'' The ordinary  drr'.smaker.does her work with her own  hands m p^ces which, if humble, are at  lenst cleanly , the fashionable dressmaker  simply   does   the   fitting and talking.  Sometimes she   is so ashamed of the  obvious poverty of her outdoor hands  that she gives them particular instructions not to bring back work  during  business hours,  in case' thoy might be  eeen   by  her customers.    Whenever I  hear of a case of i'nver among  the aria-  louracy I ask my soli' if the clothing is  not moi e, to blame than  tho dj&iiiK."������������������  ���������"-i'0.ir>ij ���������^.���������.-onic'.le  Espimalt & Nanaimo By.  ��������� TIME TABLE   EFFECTIVE  NOV. 19th, 1898.

Traffic Manasrer  Cold Puts a Lustre Upon Silk,  hi yne of the large cold storage war*-  aouiies in 3STew York,  according to tho  sun, several vaults are filled with made-  .ip woolen goods     The low temperature  :ias been found to be the best preventive  ug.:int,i. moths yet discovered.    In 'the  ���������same storehouse is a quantity of raw silk.  The commodity  is sold by weight, and  when stored in ordinary warehouses the  ���������.ilk  dijc.5,   and uatnrally decreases in  value.    By storing it in a cold vault tho  moisture is preserved, and the silk keeps  its  weight.    There is another curious  factin regard to the oold storage of silk.  Many large dealers in silks and ribbons  iceep their bales a-nd bolts in cold storage  with the temperature reduced below tlie  frc<y/.ing point.    It was discovered some  years ago that silk in winter usually had  i finer luster than in summer..   The co?d  air was supposed -to be accountable foz  the change, and an experiment was tried  in keeping bales of silk in cold rooms for  comparison' with  others on the   store  counters.  . The cold silk then appeared  10 ho of a much fin or quality,   when in  reaiity it was from the same loom.    As  soon as this fact bec.utie generally recognized the largo niYl-: dealers went to the  yoid storage warehouses and  had theii  silks placed in freezing vaults.    In some  ibises the thermometer'is kept as low "an  i 0 degrees, and when the bales aro taken  out they feel like blocks of ice.    Some  6rms keep most of their stock in storage.  and only take _silk out in quanties equal  to the anticipated sales of tbe day, for  the lustre acquired by freezing soot? dh������  appears after exposure on the bargain  ���������C.'-mtflr  MEN   WANTED;  500 white miners and helpers  ior the Wellington Extension  and Comox mine?, to supercede  ���������all the Chinese in our mines.

II,   IWOEj, X  ���������f f  Dunham Greer looked out through the  big windows of the hotel reading room.  Night was coming on. a thousand lights  twinkled in .the store fronts, the forms of  the passers were growing blurred and indistinct. Dunham yawned. He was at  a loss how to kill time. He had just finished his dinner, and the evening was before him. There were great houses up  town where he would be cordially welcome, but Dunham had no desire to make  an evening call: ��������� He fancied he would  like something new, some novelty in the  form of entertainment. There were the  theaters, but no true New, Yorker ever  goes.to the theaters away from home. He  remembered being in Cleveland the preceding summer and how he had enjoyed  himself at a picnic to which ho was si*lf  invited. He laughed at the remembrance  and picked up the evening paper again. '���������  And then his glancing eye caught this  item:  "The ladies-of,the Barclay Avenue Free  church will give a progressive euchre party this evening' at the home of Mrs.  James Lemmers, 02 Scroop court, for the  benefit of the Sunday school library fund.  Friends" o'f the church are invited to be  present and are assured of a good tim'e.  Take tbe-Rockport car from,the square  Dunham went to the fair. As ho entered a tall young man in a long Prince  . . Albert, a pale young man with thick,  black hair, looked around at Dunham and  gave him a pleasant smile and nod. Dunham nodded back and then went up the  stairs in accordance with the bright faced  young woman's instructions to leave his  hat and coat. As he came down the  stairs again he heard a whir of feminine  drapery behind him, a little shriek, and  a young woman was precipitated against  him with considerable violence. Dunham was quick witted. and his muscles!  were tense. Something prompted him to  ���������brace himself suddenly, and the shock of  contact did not overthrow him.'  "Dear me," murmured a voice over his  shoulder, "but-that was stupid. I must  have caught my heel on the upper step.  - New "shoes, you know. It was awfully  good of'you to be in the way. 1 might  have progressed down every step to the  "bottom.   It's Mr. Blossom, isn't itV"  Dunham looked around. A pretty girl  with' glowing cheeks, a pretty girl in a  pretty light dress, was looking clown on  him from an upper step.  "No," he said, "it isn't Mr. Blossom;  it's Mr. Greer, and Mr. Greer is very  glad that he could be of some assistance  to you during the recent rush."  "Oh." said the pretty girl. "1 thought  it was the minister's friend from the  west. I am May Fleming. You know  Mr. Chandos, don't you 7"  Dunham shook his head.  "The fact is," he said, "I'm almost an  entire stranger."  He put in the almost because he felt  that he had some slight acquaintance  with a young lady by the name of Fleming.  /"I will introduce you," she said, and  drawing him to the tall young man presented him in due form and then slipped  away.  Dunham's heart warmed to the young  minister at once. He looked so earnest,  so kindly, so good.  "I do not remember to have seen you  among us before," he said.  "No," said Dunham. "It's the first  time I've been in this part of the city.  I'm an eastern man, a New Yorker."  Some Freemasonry of instinct prompted  him to add, "Harvard, '90."  . "Princeton, '01," cried the minister,  and then they shook bauds again. "Y.our  name," said the young shepherd as he  beamed down on Dunham, "is quite a familiar one. At least it would be esteemed  so by most readers of the daily press."  "Yres," said .Dunham shortly. And he  frowned.  He was about to add something when  his attention was drawn away by the  pretty girl whom he mot on the stairway.  She held a. salver to him, and from it he  drew a card. It bore the name ".lack."  Dunham showed it to the minister.  "I fancy," laughed the latter, "that you  are expected to look up a 'Jill.' " So  Dunham passed about the somewhat  crowded rooms, and, lo, when lie found  his "Jill" it was the heroine of the staircase again!  "And   Jill   came  stumbling  after,"   he  merrily, quoted as he thrust his card  before   her.     And    presently   they    found  themselves at one of the little tables scattered  about the  room,  and   when  a  bell  jangled the playing commenced..   Dunham  had never played in just this fashion before,  but ������ie quickly" caught  the fashion  of it and  entered  into  the spirit of the  business as if he had found the one occupation   that  pleased   him   most.   , For  it  was a business, unci a serious business at  that.    They played in a grave and quiet  fashion, broken in upon only by the jangling bell, the swish of garments as the  players progressed and by the coming of  an  active  small  boy   who  hustled  about  with a railway  ticket  punch  puncturing  the   progression   on   the   players'   score  cards.     There  were  20  of  these  tables,  and it seemed to Dunham as if he would  surely visit them all with his astonishing  run of luck.  "How is the climbing. Jack?" inquired  ���������Till when he passed her for the second  time.    Dunham held up his card.    "Oh,"  she cried, "it's like a porous plaster  and the score cards were all gathered up  by the active small boy, and then Dunham understood that this meant prizes.  He fancied he had discovered why the  playing was carried on_ in such a grave  and quiet manner.  There were light refreshments served  by the young women, and Dunham found  them good. He, strove to interest the  people -at the table with him and soon  had themjn a jolly mood. He told funny  stories and hummed the latest' popular  song for the young woman who sang and  did a clever trick with the cards for the  young man who wondered how professionals could become so expert in handling the magic pasteboards. Whc-n tu������  refreshments were cleared away, everybody was expected to join in .social converse, and Dunham sought his new  friend, the minister.  "You seem to be having a merry time,"  said the latter.  "That is what I endeavor to do wherever I go," said Dunham, with a smile,  "and it has required no effort whatever  on the present occasion. This is all a delightful novelty to me."  "You have a happy disposition," said  the young minister.  "Not always," said Dunham. "I do a  great many things that are distasteful to  me. I am not cut out for a financier nor  even for an ordinary business man. I  really don't know what I am fitted' for.  My great ambition is to spend money."  "That seems a little singular," said the  minister mildly.  , "Yes," said Dunham, "but you mustn't  understand that I, have a spendthrift's  tastes. No, I want to put the money  where it will do the most good���������where it  will make the greatest number happy. I  have a strong affection for the old caliph  who went around on the quiet rooting out  injustice and rewarding the worthy. Not  very practical, is it7 At the same" time,  don't set me down as an idle dreamer. 1  look after my father's business interests  in "a-way'that 1 have reason to believe  meets with his entire approval. Oh, I can  make myself do whatever occasion requires to be done.   How is it with you7"  '"This is the work I love and am fitted  for," said the young minister gravely.  "My people'are very dear to me, and I  feel that I am doing them good. We  have our drawbacks and discouragements. We are poor. We have, to. as  you see, utilize novel ways of adding to'  our church treasury. But we thrive nevertheless. No: I have become so attached to these labors and to these people  that my sole ambition now is to grow old  among them."  "You shame me," said Dunham, touched by the other's simple earnestness, and  he grasped his hand and drew him into  an alcove. "I was a little vexed a moment ago at your allusion to the uotorie-  ty .the name of Greer had gained in the  daily press. Perhaps I am foolishly sensitive about it, but it has never seemed  right that they should cartoon and vilify  my father simply becau.se he is a man of  wealth. I know him to be a clean, honorable citizen and the best father in the  world." .   ' ,      ...  "Your father!" said the young minister,  with a start.  "Yes. but kindly keep the relationship'  a secret," murmured Dunham. "Stand  in , front, of me a moment, please." He  drew a little wad of bills from his vest  pocket and thrust it into the minister's  hand. "Put that in your church treasury  with my father's compliments." he said,  "and the next time you read of his selfish  greed don't believe it."  Before the minister could reply a clear  voice rang out. "The lady's prize is won  by Miss Mary McAlpin and the gentleman's prize by Mr. Dunham Greer."  The gentleman's prize proved to be a  small mirror much gilded and filigreed.  over which Miss May Fleming went into  raptures as she congratulated him on his  remarkable good fortune. And then everybody was going, and Dunham just  had time to give the young minister's  hand a firm grip, when Miss Fleming  hurried him up stairs.  "You're to see me home, you know,"  she said.  It wasn't a long walk, but in the  course of it Dunham presented the merry  maid with his prize, alleging that he never couTtt <et it safely to New York.  "Every time you look in it." he said,  "you will see one of my most valued  Cleveland friends, and that, perhaps, will  sometimes remind you of me."  Which she thought a very pretty speech  indeed.  When they readied the gate of tlie  Fleming home, they paused.  "Did a little bird teJI me right that you  are soon to be married7" Dunham asked  at a venture.  "Yes." she answered frankly, "in June,  if all goes well. George is a civil engineer  and is in Mexico now. but he's to get a  place in tlie engineers' department of the  Lake Shore and  be stationed here."  "Will you come to New York on your  wedding journey 7"  "Yes." she laughed, "we have planned  to stop there two or three days���������three if  we can afford it."  "Then," said Dunham, "I want you to  be my guests. 1 fancy I can show you  some things about the city which you  otherwise would not see. It will.be a  pleasure for me, I assure you. Here is  my card. Write and let me know when  to meet you."  "You are very, very kind.,Mr. Greer."  said the girl gratefully. "1. begin to think-  there is something .quite wonderful about  you. We never saw you before tonight,  and yet���������everybody is delighted with you.  It is just as if you were a fairy prince.  There's your car. No, I won't forget.  Good night and goodby."  As Dunham stepped to the dresser to  turn off the gas in his hotel room an hour  later he looked at his reflection in the  glass and smiled and said:  "Well, my boy, you're out a handsome  prize and some money, but you've passed  a decidedly, pleasant and useful evening.

French Trapper Has Discovered a  Large Cavern In a. Glacier.  Catacombs of marvelous extent and  beauty exist in the living ice of Cloud  mountain, in northern Wyoming. They  were found by Jac'ques Moulin, a  French trapper. Nothing like them  is known elsewhere in the Rocky  mountains, and the circumstances of*  their discovery form a strange story.  Cloud mountain is a lofty peak in a  little explored region of the Big Horn  range, and near its summit, judging  from Moulin's description, is a ' true  glacier. His story in substance is as  follows:  "In the snow near the top of the  mountain I made a dugout to live .in  while I was trapping there last December. This hut was in the midst  of a great snow and ice drift that  clings to the side of the mountain. I  was far above timber line, and to make  the wood that I brought there go as  far as possible I used to build my  campfire on the floor of my little cave.  One morning I awoke to find that  where the fire had been was a yawning  well, the bottom of which I could not  see. ��������� I had been living on the roof of  a huge cavern, and the'fire bad melted  its way into the depths.  "Taking a long, and stout rope, I  fastened one end of it secure near the  'edge of the hole and lowered myself  into the depths. I took with me a  pitch pine torch and a ball of twine.  The opening rapidly became larger as  I went down, and at a depth of about  40 feet I stood upon the floor of a large  room. All around me were walls of  ice, blue in color and ,clear as crystal.  Through the ice the light filtered dimly, giving the'place a shadowy unreality. It was intensely cold, and I returned to the surface for my fur clothing.  ��������� "After lowering myself into the cavern again I tied the twine to the end  of the rope. lighted ray. torch and followed the course of the.opening, which  COFFERS AND CASKETS.  luck; it was worn by the horse,which \ seemed to lead like a long hallway di  was looked upon ��������� as the most useful  and the most lucky of animals, and it  is made of iron, which is popularly  believed to be endowed with ' protecting qualities beyond those' of any  other metal. Even now the most  rabid enemy of superstition will half-  laughingly pick up an old horseshoe  and carry-it home with him: ���������   ���������  Tbe horseshoe has often been the  means of saving life. English lore  tells how,. Queen Margaret' ' watched  the, battle of' Blore Heath in 1459,  and when she saw, the battle would  be.lost' made her escape oh horseback,  haying the blacksmith .reverse , the  shoes of her horse,- so that it .would  appear she was galloping towards the  scene of the battle instead of away.  During the American civil'war this  scheme was . put into practice and  Yankee wit was credited with originating it. Back in the Middle-Ages,  33 years before Columbus started on  his famous voyage, a woman was  bright enough to think of this plan  to save her husband and .his followers.' This is the-earliest authenticated instance of the scheme.  The Romans drove nails into the  walls of their cottages as an antidote  for the plague. The Arabs believe  that the evil geni which sends the  simoon iipon them can be appeased  by the shout, "Iron, iron!" and when  overtaken by that storm that is the  cry  they    raise. The Scandinavian  constantly carries in the bottom of  his boat an open knife or nail driven  in a reed to ward- off the water spirits?. Many nations have long hold  that iron is a potent breaker of the  spell of witchcraft, so the finding of  old iron is lucky, and as old iron is  mostly found in the shape of horseshoes, and as the horseshoe is the  lucky crescent shape, the horseshoe  has come to be considered a . lucky  emblem.  In English folk lore horses wero  looked upon as luck-bringers, and in  Yorkshire it is still thought that a  disease may be cured by burying a  horse >*,live, while in some rural districts it is a common practice to  place horses' hoofs under the beds of  invalids to cure diseases. Near the  close of the last century the belief  in the power of horscshefs reached its  height and in the West End of Eon-  don a horseshoe was nailed over the  door  of almost every  house. Fifty  years later there were but half as  many, and the present day sees only  a scant few, as education overrides  superstition.  Over the door of one of the principal churches of Suffolk a prominent  horseshoe was worked into the architecture, prdbably with the idea of  keeping the watches out. At that time,  50 years ago, many churches had  horseshoes" naih.-d over the doors. The  Irish peasants modify the custom  and nail horseshoes on the thresholds,  planting cloves of wild garlic over  the door. There is. a prevailing custom of affixing a horseshoe to the  foremasts of ships, and many of the  most" famous battleships have carried  this emblem in the past.  rectly toward the heart of the inouu-  tain.

Here I found myself in a room from  which' galleries .like the one I had entered  stretched  away  In ' every  direction.     In   width   the   galleries   varied  from 10 to 50 feet, and at their intersections great transparent columns extended to the   roof.    The'mixture of  the' dim.  white ligut',of the cave and  the   reflections   of    the  .torch's   flame  from   a .thousand   glittering   surfaces  was at once bewildering and fascinat-,  ing.

Picturesque Guises of the Ubiquitous  and Ever Useful Box.   , '   .  The present may safely be called the  day of the box,, so many and picturesque are the guises under which  this essentially utilitarian object.presents itself. We find boxes figuring as  window seats,, hall seats and dressing  table seats when of considerable size.  In other instances they are fitted out  as receptacles for shoes, coats, dress  skirts, etc., or they may hold treasures  of ribbons, laces, gloves and the like.  In the case of the sterner sex tobacco,  .keys and other masculine impedimenta  are safely sheltered therein. Indeed  there appears no end to ,the popularity  and utility of boxes in all sizes, but  most imposing as a decorative feature  are those .which recall the historic coffers and caskets.  Whatever'we may say of the perfection of our nineteenth century genius  and methods, much is still to be learned  from the study of the productions of  bygone ages, and this remark is especially true for the decorative worker,  who seeks inspiration for the embellishment of the ever needful article already mentioned.  From the most remote ages the, box  has been the object of decoration, and,  'coming much nearer our own times, on  the Italian "caponi" and-on the old.  German and Flemish marriage chests, .  appear every variety of massive and  solid ornamentation.

Chicago  Only  Heart  Wounds   Fatal.  A   well   known   surgeon,   discussing  the character of the wounds received  on the battlefields iu South Africa, bas  pointed out that experience of the present campaign would seem tp show that  the only absolutely fatal region is the  heart.    Bullet wounds of the brain are  now not uecessarity fatal, judging from  the records of the last few weeks, and  this  is presumably  due  to the  small  size of the projectile, the velocity with  which it travels and the modern practice   of  scientific   surgery,   by   which  dangerous   symptoms   likely   to   arise  from injuries may be warded off.    It  has therefore been suggested that, the  heart being the only really vital part  in the body, a steel covering should be  provided, to be worn so as to protect  that part from bullets.    A steel plate  might   be  attached    to    the   soldiers'  tunics, and doubtless the small shield  could be so fixed as neither to impede  movement  nor  cause  inconvenience.���������  London Globe.  Newspaper Advertising:.  Frank Daniels made an experiment  recently at Wallace's theater. Now  York city.

The people seemed to take  kindly to the idea, and the response  was most liberal. Eleven hundred slips  were handed to the ushers, and of that  number 991 had been attracted by the  newspapers solely."

The raw edges ��������� of the textile fabrics  are concealed and secured and the design is duly emphasized by thin strips .  of metal, kept in place by stud nails.'  A modern adaptation of, this idea  could be easily carried out with thin  sheets of copper such as1 are used.in,  copper modeling.- ,the ' required, strips  being cut from the .metal with scissors  and fastened down with small copper  boat nails. The sole necessary precaution is to see that the woodwork of the  box is of sufficient thickness to admit  of the nails being driven in. Should  the patchwork effect of the original not  appeal to the taste of today's amateur,  the wide bands could be of one color  and material, and that not necessarily  textile. A most suitable ground under  the metal would, be, for instance, undressed leather; the soft, velvety surface and the variety of color obtainable  in suede making it particularly desir- ���������  able for the purpose.  Another variety of decoration is  "strap and nail" work, or, more appropriately speaking, leather applique, in  which small pieces of leather in various colors are used to fill out a design  previously drawn upon the wood, the  leather being held by little brass headed studs or nails. The box may be first  covered with rich colored velvet or  cloth.  Still another way to get unique effects is with pyrography or poker  work. The result, when the wood is  stained to a rich deep brown and  brushed over with two or three coats  of French polish, will be remarkably  old world and handsome.

The three great vital factors  of this body .of ours are the  heart, the nerves and the blood.  ' It is because of .the triple'  power possessed by Milburn's  | Heart and Nerve Pills of making'  weak, irregular beating hearts  strong-and steady, 1/toning up  run down, shattered, nervous  systems and. supplying those  elements - necessary to make  thin, watery blood rich, and  red, that so many wonderful  cures have been accredited to  this remedy.  Here is the case of Mrs. B.  J. Arnold, Woodstock, N.B.,  who says :  "I was troubled \?or some  time with nervous prostration  and general weakness,, feeling  irritable, debilitated and sleepless nearly all the time.    My  entire   system    became    run  down.   As soon as  I  began  taking   Milburn's  Heart and  Nerve Pills.   I  realized that  they had a calming, soothing  influence  upon    the    nerves.  Every dose seemed to help the  cure.    They restored my sleep,  strengthened my nerves  and  fave tone to my entire system,  think them wonderful."  Heart  Hale Old Age.

DOAN'S KIDNEY PILLS  befriend the aged by freeing them from  pain and correcting all Disorders of th������  Kidneys and Urinary System.  Mr. Thomas, Ash, an old resident of  Renfrew, Out., spoke as follows:   *  "I am 72 years of age, and have been  troubled for a number of years with pains  across my back. When I would stoop  over it gave agonizing pain to straighten  up. I was so bad that I could scarcely  walk. I have taken many kinds of medicines, but got nothing to help mo. Being  recommended to tiy Doan's Kidney Pills  I got a box. After taking three doses I  noticed a great change ,for the better,  and I can now get around ,as smart as a  cricket.

That there must be an  election-soon to fill the vacancy in  Vancouver district is patent to everyone," hut will there be a general  flection this year? Personally, wc  aie inclined to think not. and we  ���������' think our reasons for this opinion  (good ones. Hpwever, to be forer  warned is, to be forarmed.. Let us  yiourinate Mr. Bryden when tlie  time comes. He will carry the  Conservative banner to victory if  he takes the candidacy.  * * *  According to despatches*, the Legislature will me<-t later than was  .anticipated; Nothing will be enacted exGept matiers of vital and  prising moment, and it is said the  Cabinet will be afterwards reconstructed. This will certainly mean  Helmcken for Attorney-Qeneral, it  Mr. Eberts retires, but Mr. Eberts  is too good-and valuable a. public  mar) to bp relegated to obscurity,  and any clique who attempts to  faring th^t about, will probably  find that they have undertaken an  impossible contract. Mr. Eberts  will he found in the front ranks yet  awhile, though perhaps not as Attorney General.  * w    m  More complaints are cropping up  of boat-houses being broken into  and oars, &c��������� stolen. It is high  time the police took this matter in  hand, for under present conditions  th* only safe thing for a person  owning these articles to do, is to  carry them to some place where he  can place them in a private h use.  Surely the protection of private  property should be one of the first'  considerations of the police authorities. We can positively state that  several persons of good standing  feave expressed their determination  to attend to the culprits personally,  if they cannot get protection, and  who can bin me them after their  long suffering?  rOr  It is certainly iigh time that the  trustees of the school took steps for  a diYido.n of the play ground. It  is not fair to little girl childnv. that  big boys shu.nld he allowed, to monopolize the enure 'grounds. \N t  only to '-.the   inconvenience  of th"  y       i      ' r  lit/le ones, but as an incident which  happened yesterday* shows, to their  danger'''as' well..   A ;boy  running  fast and in the   blind,   headstrong,  way common   to   the   genus  Boy,  collided with great force against a  In tie girl, throwing her violently '*o  the ground, by which she sustained  some severe cuts on the   head, and  painful bruses on the body.    It wns  quite accidental,   but   accidents of  this sort can bo avoided, and shou d  he in a school of the nize of ours, by  having a dividing fence between tho  two grounds.    Again, we  are sorry  to say that wc have ocen  informed  on good authority7 that some of Lhc  boys are in the habit of using most  objectionable and profane language.  The     thought ��������� that   little  girls  should be forced to hear talk of this  sort is revolting,,  and   is   another  reason   they    should   be'  given  a j pnce-$i.is  gr..und   to   them-elves,   and  more  than this, all objectionable   laugu-  'age on the school   grounds  should  .be-suppressed  under   pain   of suspension or expulsion.  .  ���������*$ ^i  forward to ^Dominion Day an-  &f -    k������ .
