Prior has accepted the portfolio of Minister.of  Mines, and will stand for Victoria  City. He will be opposed by Mr  Bo i well. The fight will be a warm  one, but Col. Prior's general popularity, his known ability as a  statesman, coupled with the fact  that he runs in the interests of the  Dunsmuir Government, which' is  solid, will carry him to certain victory. The country is favoured in  getting Col. Prior to enter provincial  politics, -,-.(>''  A Goddess !

For hnlf a dozen seconds there was  "���������the greatest excitement imaginable���������  -"-the quick detonation  of firearms and  ��������� rthe shouts of the  impis combined to  make a fearful  clamor.  Then 'it  died   away  and   all      was  ������������������still. ' * '     .  -"J believe they made it." , said  "Hord Bruno, who was laboring under  intense excitement himself.

The, cunning M'atabele seemed determined    to  exhaust    every    artifice  ��������� which could be conceived before combining for a grand assault. Their  severe losses on ' the two former occasions   appeared   to .'make   them    a  trifle shy about venturing up that  miniature canyon. Perhaps they had  some knowledge of the avalanche of  ragged projectiles waiting to be  turned loose upon 'the first ..provocation, and shrank from the encounter.  At least/such a grand movement was  kept as a sort of dernier ressort,' to  *be attempted, when all "other tactics  failed.  - Bludsoc and his heroes- could ( not.  expect' a moment's sleep. They must  be on the qui vive'every second of  the night, for no one could tell whon  or where the craf,ty 'Matabclo would  strike, and surely "eternal vigilance  was the price of safety under ^ such  circumstances as these'. ���������*  - An  hour had  scarcely elapsed since  the  flight  of. the  two  scouts,     when  Rod  Eric detected  a   movement,  in  ''a  quarter where they .had  no,t  believed'  an  attack could ���������be made:  / The face of the "rocky wall was so  r steep" that' it 'did not srem as though  human beings could climb _it: but  those' dwellers of the South African  wilderness wqre next to monkeys in  agility, and nothing seemed impossible to  them.      , '    ' *  lie gave'*   no  nlnrm.   b'u(.  the    word  was quietly passed around; and when  a collection  of stones hot h/ larrc and  small had*been laid in,  the bombard-,  meat began. , ,  Tt ' was quite a fierce little 'affair  while it lasted, for some of IN; ene-'  my had managed'to effect a lodgment  in places higher-up than was ''suspected, *and taking advantage of the  excitement these dare-devils attempted, to carry the fortress.

This time as before, they were successful in dislodging the foe, whose  evident design it -vas, to annoy tl em  rather than carry the fort: but the  end was not achieved without some  little waste of. energy, and several  -less cartridges to account for.

It'is  probable that we all in. more or less de-,  jjreo, even when not conscious of any definite syniptoms. are suffering in some part.  , of our system for the lack of euough.iluid  and.espucially of enough pure cool water. ,  '���������'.Wi know that so nicely is the human  obdy  adjusted  and   adapted   to/its uses;  that one  part caunot suffer without all  suffering.   If the nerves are desiccated or  dried through lack of fluid, thou it is cer-'  tain that other tissues are, also suffering  from the same lack aiid that the-wheels  of ��������� the   wonderful   machinery   are   being  clogged by reason of waste matter whieh  is not washed away.  We see by this that water does for us a  threefold service. It feeds, it washes,'and  it carries away the Cinders of the body  furnace, and through the want ,of it we  are exposed to many and great dangers.  The tissues become too dry, the blood is  thick and its flow, sluggish, and the retained waste of the body sets up a condition which the doctors call "autointoxication," or self poisoning. This condition  may give rise to almost any known symptoms from a pimple to heart failure and is  really responsible for most of the semi-  invalids with whom the world is largely  peopled. *  To obtain the best results from water  drinking certain rules should b'e observed.  People do not all need tho same amount,  and it may take a little experimenting to  fiud out just how much should be taken  in individual cases. It has been stated by  some physicians that live or six pints  should be taken during the twenty-four  hours. Of this-only a moderate quantity  "should be taken with the meals. It is a  mistake to-take no water with a meal,  but it is perhaps a greater mistake to  wash food down with water, especially  with ice water. ,-'  ���������The best time for water drinking is at  night and early in the morning. It is well  to^form the habit of slowly/sipping during  the,bath and wliile dressing two or three  glasses of cool, not ice cold, water. Twjr"  of three more may he sipped at bedtime  'and again two or three glasses an hour or  two before luncheon and befpre dinner. >  In a very short time the value of this  habit will become apparent in the resultant general improvement in digestion,'  temper and appearance.���������Youth's Companion.' :'.

Here for a song- 3*011 may command
Old books, a ell thumbed and lioary;
Along the grimy walls they stand,
Tomoa of immortjl story.
And out of reach, on loftier sheUes,
Beyond our small ambitions
.   And slender parse, dwell by themselves
The costlier "first editions."
There let them rest till Crccsus comes;
We really do not need them.
Content to banquet on the crumbs,
"""��� "~~~~We buy our books���and* read them I
Tlie one that boars the marks of use,
Back broken,* worn and shattered,
Is'dearer that its leaves are loose, '
Its poor frame rent and tattered.
,. ,i    This grim old keeper of the stall
Tends these dead things in leather ���
, And sheep and cloth -*nd parchment���alj
Close sepulchcred together,
And few   alas, besides ourselves
Who, prowl about the portals
Seek out along tlie dusty shelves
The names of these immortals!   .
- Here where the city's life goes by,
Where wheel and wagon rumble,'
Wrapped in their cerements they lie.
The lofty nnd the humble.
Dust unto dust���but from their sleep
Come bright, immortal flashes;'
Their spirits into being leap
From out their crumbling ashes.
They are not dead, these silent tomes;
' They die not, save in seeming;
Far from these bookish catacombs
r      They fill the world with dreaming,
And each that some small message gives
Or makes for' high endeavor
_ P.uts off mortality, *b'ut lives ',
And works its will forever!

', The sun. had 'sunk behind. Ben Nevis'
towering" triple peak, and the mountain
cast a'deep shadow over the'castle'of In-
J   _verlochy_���and,far out'upon .the placid blue
���"{waters of Lochiel.
',    - A' merry  group  of highland  lads  and
. ' lasses .were congregated upon, 'the greensward before the "castle's walls, threading
- v> with.'joyous steps the mazes,of <the dance,
to the inspiring notes of the 'shrill bagpipe: ._
All,.was'mirth and glee, when an unto ward, accident disturbed theharmony of
the scene. A,." band of highlanders de-
scended'thb mountain pass,'driving beforo
them 'a'herd of',cattle. A bull, shaggy
; and! untamed, broke ,f rom. the .herd and
with_,a ferocious ^bellow dashed toward
,_the circle of dancers.   , *
���o   With .'shrill  cries  they broke  up? their'
'"   sport "and "fled'in,all directions.    ,Tho in-
'   furiated animal singled out one fair girl,"
" prob'ably attracted by her scarf,,the pre-
- -vailing'color of^ which was red, and close-'
% ly pursued,'her.   ,_,_       ,s>, . "-
Though fear lent her" wings,  the mad
beast gained \inoh_her.    He was close' at
''her heels, his head'leveled for the plunge,
'-.wwhen a tall Highlander sprang before the
' flying girl, grasped the bull by the horns'
- and, with ,a dexterous movement, hurled.
the huge animal upon its back. Ere it
could rise to its feet again the drovers,
who had been_swarming to the rescue of
,-the girl, bound _ it securely with, cords.
When goaded to its feet again, the .bull
moaned plaintively and looked around bewildered and subdued by its rough tumble.
1 The villagers of Inverlochy thronged
around the man who had performed thia
great feat of muscular strength, and the
fair^ gii'1 he had saved timidly thanked
her deliverer. They all gazed curiously
upon him, for.it was'now perceived that
he did not wear the tartan of the Campbells and-was a stranger. ��._
He was a boy in years, not over twen-
- ty, and/yet fully developed, standing full
6-feet 4 inches in height, clad in highland
costume, which displayed his well proportioned form td great advantage, and
wearing an eagle's feather in his bonnet,
the symboi oi a chief. His target, or
shield, "round aa the moon," covered with
ox hide and studded with brass knobs,
hung around his neck. The hilt of a huge
two handed'claymore peeped from under
his left arm, and a long dirk rested in the
sheath upon his right thigh.    Clad in this
, picturesque garb, with Jonir, flowing locks
of light brown hair, a ruddy complexion
���" and a bright blue eye, he was a fine type
of those ancient warriors of the Gael
whom, the bard Ossian has immortalized
in song.
- "What is thy name, pretty lassie?" he
asked ihe girl, when she had thanked him
for the good service and stolen a glance
of admiration at the frank, open face and
stalwart form of her preserver.
"I am called Annie of Lochiel," she answered timidly, yet with  a sweet smile
,-that. had. n. strange  fascination  for  the
���young Highlander,! who found it impossi-,
Lie to, withdraw his gaze from that winning face.
���'"Are you a Cameron of the Clan Lochiel?". he! asked eagerly and with interest. . ���
"Not.she!" broke in one of the men of
Inverlochy, who wore the badge of an
under chief. "She is a .Campbell; and we
call her Annie of Lochiel because she was
born by yonder water. Her mother was
a McLean; she died when Annie was an
infant. Her father was Duncan Campbell, laird bf Morven, and he was. slain
by the.Gordons of Huntley in the'raid of
Garioch. There's her history in a nutshell. I that tell it to you am Malcolm
MacPhie, captain of Inverlochy, and now,
my braw gillie, who are you?"
The highiander reared his tall form
.with haughty pride as he replied:
"I am Alaster MacDonald, son of Coll-
of-the-left-band, chieftain of Mingarry
and Kintyre."
A buzz went around the circle at these
words. The MacDoualds were a bold
and warlike clan, and Coll-of-the-left-
hand was not unknown to fame.
"I have heard of the chieftain of Kin-
tyre," returned Malcolm MacPhie, "but
why do they call him 'of the left hand?' "
"Faith, I know not," answered Alaster
carelessly, "unless it be that he can wield
his claymore as well with the left hand
as with the richt-"-
A murmur of admiration greeted this
announcement. Strength of limb and
skill in arm's were considered great virtues
in those warlike days.
"Come, Alaster," cried Malcolm, his
heart won by the bold bearing of the
young highiander. "Thou hast preserved
our fairest maiden from a cruel death.
Bide with me in Inverlochy for a few
days and taste the hospitality of our an-L.
dent castle."^
"There is no feud between our clans,",
returned Alaster, "and I accept yqur offer."   '* *
They entered the castle together.        ���     ���
Malcolm MacPhie had cause to rue the
hospitality which had induced him to invite the young highland chieftain to en-
tot*, rhe  wills  of  Castle   Inverlochy.     It
soon  became apparent to others besides
himself that the bold Alaster had found''
favor in the eyes of pretty Annie of Lochiel.    A strong affection seemod to have
arisen at^the first meeting of this young'
pair, an affection which their eyes were
not slow'to'confess and,,which was revealed in eloquent glances.
,Malcolm had detected more than one of
these glances as he dispensed the hospitality of the castle, and he resolved in'his
own mind that Alaster should not bide
long   at   Inverlochy.     lie   prevented*,.all
chances   of  conversation   between' them
until it was time for Annie to retire for
tho night.    He then invited  Alaster to
Walk with him upon the battlements and
pointed "out the streugth of the castle.
1   A taper gleamed from a low turreted
window that looked out upon'tne parapet.
'.'Who  occupies yon  chamber?"   asked
Alaster.                  r
~"Annie of Lochiel," replied Malcolm.
'."A winsome lassie," responded Alaster

quickly, with an angry flush.. "Annie is
the ward'of Sir Donald'Campbell o'f,'Au-
chinbreck, my chief and kinsman. Seek
another, bride, , Alaster "MacDonald, for
Annie is to be my wife." (
, Alaster's eyes were fixed upon the little
'window as he listened to these words, and
he,saw a fair face,appear there. An energetic shake bf the head said very plainly, "No, no!?'to Malcolm's assertion, and
the fair vision disappeared.
"I wish'you joy," replied Alaster. with
a quiet smile.   /'Happy will be the man*
who calls, the lovely Annie,his."        '   '
' A white,'hand was waved for an moment   from- the   casement   and   quickly
withdrawn.    Alaster was understood and
answered.'   Malcolm was totally  uncon->
scious of'this novel courtship.   �����
. , "A "rare, place  this  for  an   escalade,"
said Alaster, leaning over the parapet'.and
pointing  to   a"  spur  of  Ben .Nevis   that
reared its craggy head almost on a level
with, the battlements.        _     ' __'_.'
..,,'.For.a goat, -*yes," answered'Malcolm
disdainfully. *"No " human4 being, could'
���scale yon cliff. 'Look at the'distance. It
is twelve feet from the battlement, with

never'enter Inverlochy from that quarter."     ' '

speak with'his sweetheart," "returned, Al-
^stt-r   carelessly,   "aiid   he ""would   think
lightly of the danger for tho boon of one
sweet smile."
"And break his neck for his pains,"
answered'Malcolm with a laugh. "Come,
''the night is nearly spent, and you are
welcome to a share cf a soldier's couch."
They left the battlements without further' words and descended to Malcolm's
In the morning early Alaster departed,
for he had no excuse to prolong his stay,
and Malcolm MacPhie drew a long breath
of satisfaction when he saw the stalwart
form of the young highiander disappear
up the glen.
That night when the moon veiled her
silvery face behind the towering head of
old Ben Nevis Annie of Lochiel wandered
pensively upon the battlements of Inverlochy, gazing ever and anon upon the
craggy platform that jutted out from the
mountain's side.
A tall form emerged from the shadows
and advanced to the edge of the cliff.
"Alaster?" whispered the maid in cautious tones, bending over the parapet.
"I am not a goat," answered, Alaster
with a glecsome laugh, "but it is even I,
Alaster, fair Annie."
"now brave you are!" cried the maid
involuntarily. "You have undergone this
danger to see me once again?"
"You-know right well what brings mo
here: Annie, I love you. Short as our
acquaintance has been, yon have enslaved
my heart. I have scant time for wooing.
My presence here may be discovered at
any moment. If you bide in Inverlochy,
it will be to become the wife of Malcolm
MacPhie. Fly with me to the land of
Kintyre and share a chieftain's homo."
"Alaster, I would Avillingly fly with,
thee to escape the dreaded fate, that
awaits me hero, but how can I escape?
Malcolm MacPhie has watched me closely1 all the day"���
"Aye, and he watches thee nrtw!" cried
Malcolm, suddenly emerging upon the
battlement. Fickle jade! Didst think to
outwit meV"
Annie uttered a faint shriek of despair.
"Leap, Annie, leap!" cried Alaster in
sharp, ringing tones. "The space is narrow��� spring boldly from the parapet���
thy lover's arms await thee!"
Scarcely conscious what she did���impelled by desperation and that instinctive
feeling'-of obedience which true love
prompts���Annie avoided the grasp of the-
exasperated Malcolm, ran a few steps
upon the parapet18 and leaped boldly
across the yawning void. Malcolm paused aghast. He expected Jo hear'her death
shriek and the dull sound of her form as
it.struck the rocks beneath. But he heard
only a cry of joy and saw Annie twining
her arms around Alaster's neck, while
his clasped her in safety to his breast.
To this day the curious traveler who
visits the old gray ruins of Inverlochy is
shown the spot from which Annie sprang,
aud that part of the battlement still bears
the name of the "Maiden's Leap."
��� Alaster and Annie disappeared in the
gloom,  nnd  Malcolm hastened to alarm
tne castle ana urge a hot pursuit. But
who could follow the bold highiander as
he leaped lightly from crag to crag, bearing his precious, burden in his arms?
Pursuit, was unavailing; ,the fugitives
could not be found, and Malcolm MacPhie returned sullenly to Inverlochy,
swearing a deep and bloody vengeance.
There-was high feasting in the'land of
Kintyre, and Castle Mingarry opened its
hospitable gates so that all of the Clan
^.Donald might witness the nuptials ,of
Annie of Lochiel and Alaster, their young

themselves, or, at any rate, not one that
can be detected in the sta'te in which we
generally handle them. The smell, as a
matter of fact, is due to the chemical ac-
,.tion of the acids that exude from our
hands. Take a bronze coin, clean it and
lay it on a clean1 surface in the air; it will
emit no smell. Handle it for a minute or

The Mnlcli  as ��n  Aid When  Irrigate
, inj*; Euriiij-,- Drought.
' The plan of conserving moisture by
an earth mulch m:��ie by frequent cultivation may be the best one in growing farm crops, but a writer in American Gardening expresses the opinion
that* for the gardener who plants close-
ly and practices an intensive system of
. culture the moisture that can be conserved by an<earth mulch is not sufficient for the'needs of the plants.
1 He says: During a drought, of two
weeks in August I have had plants wilt
to the ground, although an earth mulch
was kept around them., Even with the
, very, best soils the gardener who obtains the best results must in' midsummer, when the weather is hot and dry
and moisture evaporates rabidly, use
some means of conserving m'oisture
and if one can irrigate provide more
water than the soil gets from its natural sourens. My experience with irrigation has taught m'e bow to economize
in the use of water" by mulching or
shading the surface of the ground.
Few people realize the largo quantity
of water needed fto supply the loss
from thevevaponition of- moisture 'aud
the transpiration of plants'during the
hot days when' the suu-shines. The water pumped up from "the soil'through
the roots by the process of-.trauspira-*-
tiou is estimated at* 50 to"100 tons per
acre on closely planted fields *in 2-4
hours. Pf the surface of tho ground is
exposed, 'the soil loses as much more
by ^evaporation.x. When irrigating during a-'drdughf. I have found that much
less water w,as required where the surface: was mulched-with manureor other material, and where I prevented'the
loss-from evaporation with the mulch,
better results were ..obtained with less
than one-half the water. _ t , " |
' My plan "is to plant closely, cultivate
the plants'frequently during the early
part of the'summer, then later, .when
the plants are larger and.need more
moisture,' to place a mulch of 'manure
between the'rows. -      -      . '
I suppose ������ every, one who has cultivated the soil has noticed* the difference in soils as'to absorbing and retaining rnoistm-e; that'' gravelly and
sandy soils raisidly" lose -their moisture
when exposed to a" hot "sunshine and
that loamy soil full-6f humus retains
water Jike a sponge and under" the
right treatment conserves''a1 constant
supply.for the growing plant.*   \
In a Word,' the lessons I have learned
in the garden are: Fill the soil*with the
humus that enables it to retain 'all the
moisture^possible.^ give "frequent cultivation during the'early part,of the
summer, then ���, mulch the unshaded
spaces," and when a crop is removed before September seed with a cover crop.

The Prnctice of a Grass Specialist.
That great grass specialist, George
Clark of Connecticut, cultivates, harrows and plows his land over 20 times
before seeding. In this thorough preparation is the sure road to success, a
large crop and few seeds. After the
ground'is ready the seeding is an easy
and simple matter. If for market purposes, clear timothy or timothy and
redtop may be used, but if the crop
is-to be-fed out on the farm or the field
is to be used for pasture some other
grasses may be added. From v15 to 25
pounds of seed \o the acre should.be
used. It may be put on with the grass
seed attachment to the grain drill,
broadcast by hand or with a grass
seed sower. ' If sown broadcast, the
field must be cross sown in order to
avoid any skips. The seed should be
covered lightly with a smoothing or
brush harrow or a light roller. ' While
the roller smooths and levels the surface and 'compacts the soil around the
seed and' insures a speedy germination it is not advisable to use it on
many soils. On hillf-ides it makes -it
worse for washing, and in moist places
it makes the ground too wet. The
brush harrow is probably the best implement foi1 covering the seed. As to
time of sowing, this depends somewhat
on the weather. From Aug. 20 to Sept.
'10 is probably the best period. After
sowing nothing more is required unless
it be to hand pull any bad weeds which

'Destroying'Bushes. .
Bushes cut to the ground in August
will often be entirely killed. The bush
has exhausted its sap in making the
summer .'growth, of leaves, and if these
are dried up it has not enough sap to
send lip sprouts this fall. Some: may
start next spring, and these should be
burned over if not where it will endanger buildings 'or,'forests.���'��� The fire
will char the buds at the base of the
leaves sufficiently to kill them.

The speech, from the  throne' deals with, several  Lnpor-  tant  matters���������the recent negotia-.  tions with the Federal Government  with  regard to railway subsidies,  fishery development, railway rates,  ��������� oh agricultural subsidies, immigra;  tion, finance and the development  of unsettled territory by means of  railway's.   -Owing to the absence of  speaker * Booth,    Mr   Po'oley   was  elected speaker, and took.the chair.,  After some   routine   business   Mr  Helmcken, on a 'question'-of privilege,-moved that a writ be issued for  the election of a member to fill the  vacancy in the Legislature caused'  by the resignation,of the���������Hqn. Mr  Turner, one of the membersfor Victoria City/  The, Premier, in reply-,  '     ing, eaid that " the delay had been  caused' by Mr Helmcken,  who had  beon asked to take a position in the  Cabinet, and who had led him (Mr'  Dunsmuir) to believe that he would  accept it.    He (Mr Dunsmuir) had  waited 'for a..month'for an answer  from Mr Helmcken, who had never  told .him that he5 would not accept  * the position, and in fact he did not*  know 'that he; would not enter the  'GoVernmen't'until he,saw in a re-  - port of .Mr Bod well's meeting tha t  he. would, not "join the Govern  , menCV Mr Helmcken denied the'  truthjof the Premier's statement":  and the Premier replied: "All lean  Bay*xb, that it is the truth." Mr  Helmcken's decided opposition to  the' Dunsmuir.' Government has  caused some surprise, as it is well  known that he hascalways straddl-  edv thej* fence since he became a  member of tb_e Legislature. Possibly his trimming propensities have  had much to do with his non-suc-  cess as a politician. He was always  very amiable   and accommodating,  * but heretofore would never commit  .himself to one side or the other.  Th������ debate was* adjourned until  Monday on a division of 18 to 15.  On.Monday the speech from the  throne was'to have'been considered  but the session of the House was  taken up by a prolonged wrangle  over the allotment of the members'  Beats? Mr Richard McBride considered that he was entitled to take  . the-seat held by Mr Joseph Martin,  the opposition leader, during 'the  last' session of the Legislature.    Mr  . Martin,' however, refused to give up  the seat. *' Mr Smith Curtis took a  hand in- the row, and endeavored to  hold the seat against all comers,  but Mr-M-artin'managed to regain  his seat after many attempts to'  pull him out of the chair. Finally  the friends of the belligerents interfered, and the House,  by a vote of  ,16 to 19, ordered, that the assignment of seats should remain as fix-  ���������d at the last session; o'f the Legislature.

S.]  I have often thought we would do well,'  as a city yet in its mfarcy, to take into  consideration the origin ,of cursing and  swearing, when, and by whom, it was  first used, and its consequences.  I   have  heard  yoKng  children taking  God's  name in  vain'"in a most shocking  manner.    My heart aches for these poor  little ��������� ignorant    neglected   ones,    who  thoughtlessly bring upon themselves the  wrath  of God '   Whose example is this  the result  of?     They have  heard older  people use this awful  way of expressing  their feelings'or children would never use  it.     Who is  responsible for their awful  sin?    Now, with'regard to its origin, we  have no account of Satan ever cursingr or  using profane language, although he was  the first to sin, and all sin is directly or  indirectly traceable to him.    Yet we~read  ���������in the Hoy Bible, when Satan addressed  Jesus our saviour,  he uses these words,  "What have  we  to  do with  thee, thou  Jesus of Nazareth?   I   know  thee  who  thou  art,  the  Holy One  of God,"   and  "Ait thou come to destroy us  before the  time.'' Read Matthew viii-29; Markj-24;  Luke iv-34; and Job I.    Now, please notice this compared with man's way especially when he is intoxicated, he uses awful  language   compared with this.    He calls  upon God to damn his soul and the souls  of  his   wife,   children,   and   compnnions  with whom he is talking.   Then why docs  Satan   not  curse  and   blaspheme God's  name like man does? simply because  he ,  is   not   so  ignorant  as  man is,  and he  knows more about God than man  does.  As Satan was an angel  of great  beauty  he aspired  to be  in   God's   place   and  through pride and rebellion he fell.   Still,  sinful as he is, he knows more about God  than   man   does,   and   fears   his   awful  wrath. ' ���������  If all who curse and swear will take  their Bibles and read the twenty-fourth  chanter of Leviticus, they will see who  the first man who cursed and blasphemed  was, and its consequences, as God caused him 'to he stoned to death. If they  re;id this chapter carefully 1 think thev  will never curse or blaspheme God's  name again or be able to hear it without  COAL  MINES  REGULATION  ACT.       ���������      ~   .,''  Board, of Examiners.  1TOTICE is hereby given-that the foIloV-  ll     ing constitute tho Board of  Examiners  for the Comox Mine during tbe year 1902 :  Appointed,by the Owners:���������Richard Short,  ��������� . and David Walker.
