"Early in August, in <lie year  1S7G, my father mid mywlf woro  journeying up Lake Kosseauwith a,  party ot prospective settlers on tlio  -old steamer Wenonah (long .since de-  ���������strpyed by fire), and when about a  ���������mile frora tho mouth of the '.Indian  ���������Kiver tho.man at the wheel observed  ���������m. whito object floating about a  quarter, of ft mile away and-directly  in the steamer's tracks. At first it  was supposed to be an overturned  bark canoe, and on appcuochmg the  captain aald it was a drowned man  ���������floating, and not having ',a small  ���������5)oat aboard, the steam was shut of!  ;and tho boat allowed to run slowly  <iip to tho supposed floater, a man  being stationed forward with a-f-iku  pole to draw the object in to the  side of the steamer, but to our intense amazement the nionicn!,,. he  .'.iabbed his pike into the white mass  ���������it was at once turned into an in-  ���������niense fish, which immediately a1;-  ^acked the steamer in the most foi'o-  'oious manner. Seizing the cutwater  of the boat in its mouth it tore a  large portion of it away, together  with considerable of the planking-.  'The captain rushed out of hia eali.in  with a gun and fired a hoavy ctuirg.-  ���������of buck-shot and -slugs into .Lh.;  "'-monster's head at short range,  which did not seem to'.affect it very  much, and it was only after the fish  'had. been shot fifteen or twenty tim-  <vb in.the head that it was suthciently  ���������-^b^le^ToTWnTrt^T~fCs~baTig de���������  "spatched with axes,"and not until the  steamer was in a shattered and sinking condition, thc iron work on tho  jiaddlo wheel,on one side being liter-  ixlly torn to pieces, and the rudder  nnd steering apparatus Utterly- disabled. Tho fish turned out. to bo a  very largo shark, weighing no less  than 800 lbs., and measuring 11 ft..  J.0J inches. I remember that there  ���������was considerable speculation at the  t> imo nti to whero the flsh came from  ���������and how it camo to be in thoso lak-  ���������<-s, and if I remember rightly was  'finally settled by tho then able editor Of Tho Muskoka Herald, who, in  ���������xi very lucid article, explained how  'Che fish had been taken up soinc-  whoro in tho Southern' Sens by a  nornado aud had fallen with the nun  in that northern latitude, a 'Hither  ���������common occurrenci.!,"  Children of l.oi-U Aliuidt-en.

Whenever military companies came  to the island for a holiday young women thronged the windows and waved  handkerchiefs, but there was no rise of  military ambition in the town.

'  Wo do not claim that every one ataxia  who is paralyzed can be cured by  using Dr. Chase's Norvo Food, for  many are beyond the reach of any  medical treatment and roust finish  their days in helplessness and suffering:.  -It is rather to those who nro only  partially paralyzed and to those, who  aro slowly but surely 'developing the,  sj'mptoms which indicate the" approach of such ailments tliat we  would suggest the advisability" of  using Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, the  great food cure for diseases of the  nerves.  'When you find yourself lying awake  nights, sufl'er from indigestion and  headache, feel drowsy after meals  and losing energyf ambition and  courage, it is time to pay attention  to the nerves. You may find yourself irritable at times, worried over  little things, unable to concentrate  the miud, forgetful and absontmhaled, disheartened and discouraged.  Better give somo attention to the  nerves.  Dr, .Cllase's Nerve Food cures and  prevents  paralysis    and    locomotor  ease by inducing unconsciousness and unnatural  sleep. It does not deaden tha  nerves as do opiates and narcotics.

''Ycm must be very  hungry, and almost frozen; you shall  have something to\cat at once."  "Aly little girl, perhaps." returned  the Oberforstcr; "but I would rather dine at thee hotel where I am  staying. Can you keep Anne Marie  hero?"  He had takpn'.oil his fur coat and  looked over to Lucie, who had just  taken off the child's hat and was  kissing her over and over again.  She assented, her eyes full of tears.  "What is the matter with her?" she  asked, standing up.  "Always the same; she gets thinner  nnd thinner every day. It is no  wonder."  Lucie went into the kitchen a.ncr  got some milk and whife bread for  the child, and then she. went up to  tho, old baron's bedside. "My brother-in-law has just .arrived, most .���������������������<������������������  oxpectedly," she, said, in a voice that  hwl a ring of gladness in'it, "or X  should have been here 'before io r^d  , tho paper to you.

Would ho like to see me?   I  'should be very glad."  "I will send him in after awhile,"  returned the girl, "I do not know  what he has come for."   *';.-  "It will be better to-morrow morn-  ,ingi early,"  said  the baron.   .'Yes,  ' that will be better���������better.    I    am  so tired to-day."    He held out   his  nana to her.    "Sleep well, Lucie!"  Sho     went    back into the dining-  room.      What     did Jho want?    And  with this question in her large eyes,  sho seated herself opposite him    in  tlio high arm-chair by the chimney.  \llo     was     holding his child in his  amis and gazing into the lire.  i    "How arc you getting on?" he ask-'  'ed, without looking up, and in that  low, hoarse voice that is with many  .people     the sign of great agitation,  i    ' 'Thank you, very well; and yo u?''  i    "How should it be with me?

Lucie did not answer; a deep feeling  of compassion, filled  her  heart.  She noticed how his right hand, that  , was holding     the, child's little one,  trembled, and how agitated his gray  face looked.   He was ao unkem.pt, so  .neglected.   And the child.   The pret-  1 ty blonde curls     hail been wet and  braided tightly; that little dress of  Home black woolen staff with whito  dols     was made, in such a common'  tasteless .way like a peasant's;    tho  littlo     handkerchief round her neck  wan' ragged at. the corners.  "lain to' blame, too," she said.  "I am not angry with you; but if  you had only understood how I was  circumstanced! George, tell me  what I can do for yott"  "Lucie," and ho let tho child slip  from hia lap and motioned it toward  i her,  "you know  how I loved    ll'a-  ihlldtt."  "Yen," she said,  "And you���������you, too���������although  you did not conic to us?"  "Yos, I did too, Goorgo, God  knows I did."  Uo was ttilent, then drew out a  bright rod handkerchief and wiped  hlfl brow.  "It can not. go any longer so," ho  nolo, "or the children will be entirely ruined."

Tt seemed to her  as ff the slightest movement would  throw her into an abyss. A long  pause, followed. The child slipped  down from her chair and ran across  the room with short steps.  "It hurts!" she said, pointing to  her throat. ''������������������'_,'.        '  He., took the little creature on his  knee and smoothed her curly hair.

"She is feverish;'" he said, anxiously, to Lucie. "I hope she is hot going to be ill."  "1. will put her to bed." said Lucie, recovering bor power of speech.

He put on his fur coat without a  word, took his,hat, and left the  room .without looking round.  She stood still and looked about  her; it seemed to her she must have  had a horrible dream.  "Aunt Lucie 1" said the little child,  sobbing.  She took thc little hand and went  into Lhe hall with the child. Made-  mo isello opened the door of her room  and looked out.

With  an immense effort she summoned all  her strength, ascended the stairs,  and reached her room. She struck a  light and began to undress the child,  doing everything in a mechanical  way.  "Is Tan to angry?" asked a timid  little volco.  Sho did not hoar her.

V., had  been inspecting government property  out in the corral,- but the heat had  driven him into his tent, which ������������������.was  pitched Just oh the edge of! a coffee  plantation..-"  It was at the tlmo when our government was withdrawing from Porto  Rico the vast number of horses, army  wagons and other transportation paraphernalia which had been necessary  during the war. Inspection duty is  only given to men who aro thoroughly  trustworthy. Especially is this true in  Porto Rico. Tliere were large quantities of government-property there  after the surrender, most of it in good  condition. The planters thereabouts,  who had lost a season's crops'through  the war, were anxious to cheaply re-  eciuip their plantations with wagons,  horses and mules. It was because the  honest gentlemen had a tendency to  offer "inducements" to inspecting officers to condemn good property, which  the planters could afterward buy for  a song at the auction, that especial  care was used in the selection of inspecting officers. Lieutenant riiillips  was one of the elect.  On such government property as is  condemned the "LA" brand is placed.  "I. p." means inspected and condemned. It Is not wise for a civilian "to have  in his possession any property which  bears the mark "U. S." and does not  also bear the mark "I. C." Both are  stenciled in black paint on rentage canvas, blankets and such like, burned  into the bodies of wagons and other  wooden articles and branded on the  flanks of horses and mules.  Lieutenant Phillips kept the irons in  his own possession for fear ihey might  be used unscrupulously. He carried,  them, with their brazier still half full  of hot coals, to the rear of his tent so  that what little breeze there was would  blow tlie heat away from him. Then  he removed his heavier garments.  ~lf~h^rb^eTOTirar(lTlay'i;or-the-lieu--  tenant. Early in the morning he had  boen chief witness at a court martial  which had convicted an American soldier of having cruelly treated his wife,  a beautiful.Porto;"Uiean.girl... The accused, Liiigl Aramado, was a swarthy  fellow, of Italian parentage.  Lieutenant Phillips remembered with  discomfort the fierce'look the man had  thrown at him as, handcuffed, ho had  been led away to the guardhouse. But,  although the lieutenant hud the pink  cheeks of n girl and never a suspicion  of a mustache upon his upper lip, ho  hnd a reputation for fearlessness.  Before ho settled down to sleep he  released from the ventiluted box a  pair of, llttlo lizards. Thoy are of tho  ���������variety called chameleons and can bo  easily turned by any one who will occasionally give them a sip of sugar and  wutor, a few flics or some other dainties dear to tho heart. .Many of our  Rpldlers In Porto Rico so turned thom.  (ind Lieutenant Phillips was among  Ihclr number.  When lio linnlly luy down on his  :'[tmp eot they took tbelr "stations, one  upon his pillow, ono upon his cboat.  They know instinctively. Hint ho did  not liko to have them on his face, for  whenever they trespassed on thin territory ho moved restlessly, but their  tii'osenco near his face was quite sufli*  flent to keep most of the Hies nwny.  While the lieutenant was making all  these preparations' tor bin siesta there  was nn unpleasant eye watching him  Ihrouglt the open space left by the lifting of the back Hap ot the tout. The  .'yo wits Ut thu head of the uuui whom  the lieutenant had given evidence  tgalnst that morning. L-nlgl Arnmndo  luul escaped. Ilnlow the eye, but wholly bidden in tbe bush, there were two  hamlf*, and in one of thom there was a  knife. The mun was wnltlnti until the  lieutenant should fall asleep.  Tbe tent's flaps moved bully In the  ileepy breeze. Now and then one of  tbe little lizards made a lightning durt,  md a lly bad perlsbed. Tbe lieutenant  tlept peacefully. Everything wss as It  thou Id be when noon approaches In Um  tropics.  Still tbe llguro crouched, watchful  md silent. At length the man crept  forward till be was full In the tent;  I ben be stopped and drew from bis  blouse a tiny vial, lie wns near i  enough to hnve u*ed the s\ni(v, put hn  evidently bad oilier purposes. Perhaps  bu wihbcd to gloiU over bis victim before tbo blow fell. Ills glance bad  fallen it|iou tho braider uud the branding Iron*.  Slowly and noiselessly he rose to bis  feet. It wus i������ mistake, for It startled  the llswrd*. Disobeying their training,  tliey senmitered over Uio face ������f the  lleeper,  It tuilf woi.c him, and lie looked up  lazily, but before be could more than 1  nttrh a jitimp-M* oi iin- eul eyiH iind i  icif timing blade, h������fon'������ be could halloo j  for help, the man flung blm^-lf upon j  him and In the Nontenant'* tiOHtrl!*  rufci'i'd the deadly fumes of < hloro- '  form.   Then he lo.-t cwiHciousnc*-*.  The Italian raised himself cautiously���������the stupor might be .feigned. Rut  a moments scrutiny relieved his fears  In-a'twinkling he had bound the lieu  tenant hand and foot and thrust'a gag  iuto his month.  "Killing wouldn't be enough," the  desperado muttered fiercely.', *rI'll mark  him for lifo, so I. will."  The lizards meanwhile had darted up  on the canvas of the tent They had  3rtne all that they could in waking lhe  lieutenant. They could not fight fot  'aim.      ,,  And while lhe lizards watched witb  ";eir beady eyes the intruder thrust  the irons into the brazier. The lieu-  temuit's eyes were open now, for the  force of the opiate \vtfs spent. The desperado turned and caught their undaunted glance.-  "Pig of a lieutenant!" be said viciously. "It is now I who have the power.  I will wait until the irons heat, then  we shall see what we shall see." And  ho kicked the helpless figure before he  turned again to the brazier. !  As he watched the metal turn from  black to gray a<nd flush into redness, a  cruel smile disclosed his fanglike teeth.  "'Tis.most ready, my lieutenant," be  said tauntingly.  Noiselessly the tent flap swayed, as if  moved by a gentle breeze. The man's  back was turned. He was too intent  on the brazier to see a flight figure  which slipped through the aperture,  it was YsaboJ, his wife.  Tho girl's eyes dilated with horror  as she glanced from the bound lieutenant to the deadly preparations of his  enemy. Then with a little movement  she snatched the pistol which lay on  the table. At the sound the man at  the brazier turned and found himself  looking into the barrel held in her  steady hands. He was a coward; and  he quailed before her.  "Take those ropes off," she said imperiously in her musical Spanish,  pointing to the lieutenant's bonds. "If  you do not I will shoot you."  There was a tremor in her voice, but  her eyes were unflinching.  The lieutenant watched her, fascinated. Her husband, sullenly accepting  defeat, began to untie the knots. At  length the captive -was released and  the two stood silently before her. Roth  seemed overawed by the beauty and  fearlessness of thc woman.  .Still poiuting with her pistol, she  "cried:-" ;   "Now, go���������go���������go, Luigi, and never  come back again." Without a word  the desperado obeyed.  When the tent flap fell behind him  the pistol dropped from her trembling  lingers and she leaned against the table  as if for support...  "Was it wrong to jet him go?" she  said appeallngly. "You would have  killed him if he had stayed, and I(  could not have stood that. I���������loved  him���������once." There was;a' sob In her  throat "Now he will never dare to  conio back again. I shall be free from  him. You will let him go for my  sake?"  As the lieutenant glanced from (he  irons from which she had saved him  to ber pleading face he could not but  consent. Yet, as she, too, disappeared  behind tbo coffee bushes, he heard her  choking sobs.  "The way of a woman Is hard,'' said  the lieutenant.  CaMtiitsr n Statue.  Stiglmayer, a CJerman goldsmith in  tbe llrst pnrt of tho just contury, having un ambition to attempt larger  works than any ho had accomplished,  went to Naples Jn ordor to seo tbe casting of Canovn's statue of Charles III.,  but was denied tho sight of certain secret technical processes. Stiglmayer  found tbem out for himself nevertheless nud us soon as he went borne made  bis first experiment on n statuette of  Venus.

"And the six eggs we could uot sell  a week since?"  "Mistress Brown��������� Are you ill, sir?'  asked Silas, as the grocer turned green  and groaned.  "No, no!

McClun  1 TALES OF A 1  **l.  6  $  6  o  I'D  The *L;indors, with the exception of  Dick, whoso business detained Jiiin in  Hie city, were spending tho summer at  tlielr oountry homo, some thirty miles  out of C. One day Mollie deckled to  run in for a fow days "to see Diclc ami  Kbop a little."  The next morning she walked into  lier brother's office, much to iiis but;  ( prise and delight, for Dick was fond  of his little sister.  "1 thought you must be lonely, dear,"  she said, "when you go home at night,  and I've come to bo company for a day  or two1:"  "That's good of you, Mollie. I'll tell  Mra. Klapper to come over early and  got breakfast i'or us. She keeps tny  rooms in order, but I get all of my  meals downtown."  "Bless you, Dick, I can got breakfast  for us both! You need not say a word  to Mis. Klapper. How surprised she'll  be when she conies over in the morning! I must go to do some shopping  now, but I'll take tea with you at 5,  and then we'll buy bread, coffee'and  some kind of breakfast food. Won't  it be fun camping out in the house?"  After a jolly"breakfast Mollie watched him swing into a car; then she went  into the kitchen. Mrs. Klapper found  ���������her there. "Why, Miss Mollie," tha  good woman cried, "what ever ������re you  in town for?"  Mollie explained. "Now that I'm  ber.," she added, "I think I'll wash  all of the bedroom curtains���������those dotted swiss ones, 3'ou know. Jane should  have attended to, them before she went  out to Hill Side."  "Oh, let me wash them, Miss Mollie!  It '11 spoil your pretty hands." And  Mrs. Klapper looked distressed.  But Mollie laughingly declined; "No,"  she said; "you may sweep and dust to  your heart's content, but I shall do the  washing."  The water was soon bubblingon the  kitchen range. Mollie scorned.tlu? base-  --nient���������laundi^,-andr_with-^irs>_Jviap-=-  per's help, carried her wash bench and  tubs to the back porch.  Enveloped in one of Jane's big  aprons, with sleeves rolled up lo her  dimpled elbows, Mollie bent over her  washboard. Mrs. Klapper, broom in  hand, stood for a moment watching  her. "Don't tiro yourself to death,"  sbe said. "I hope you'll call uie"beforo  you're all tuckered out." She turned  to go into the'house, but paused to say,  "I'd most forgot your brother said he  expected a young man here today."  f "Yes, I knpw���������it's some ouo that  wauls work. Dick says. I'm to find  something for him to do. If lie comes  la .'time I think I'll let him tako a turn  at tho tub if I'm tired. Now you can  go to work in peace, Mm. Klapper, for  I shall have an able assistant," and  Mollie laughed and splashed tlio water  right and left with her vigorous rubbing.  A hnlf hour wont hy, nml tbon Mrs,  Klapper appeared In tho doorway,  "Tbnt young man's como," hIio said.  "IIo walked right up 1'o the front door  and rang tho bell. Uo didn't look as If  ho needed work innch-dreSHcd us well  as Mr, Dick, every bit. I've loft him  on the porch and looked tho door after  mo. You''can't'be too careful. No one  knows but Do stole that suit."  V Molllo laughed. "Tell him to come  iiiound hero where I am," slio snid, "lf  lie wishes to work,"  "Morcy!   Ho ain't no much us men  tioned yot that ho Is hunt lug u Job-  acts ns if ho expected you to boo him  In tho parlor.  I'm iirwt ufrald lo huvo  such a man around."  ,40h, no!" sulci Moi::������. "You are loo  hard on tho poor f<-;:*w. Probably  some ono gave lilm thv ������lothes, I'Ii-ukd  flood him horo, Mm. KI upper."  A mlnuto or two lati'i* n pleasant  faced, athletic looking younx mnn  swung around tho oormT of tlio lnmm������  und lifted bin hat to Mollie. Yen, ho  watt woll dressed und flue looking.  "Midi I.andorV" ho askod.  "Yon, nnil you nro tlm-tlio"- how  should sho my itV���������"yomitf man my  brothor wns oipoetingr  '"Xh* luinio-Ilrcnt Carrol, at your  mrvlc*. Yonr brother mid I'd tltid you  horo. I'vo Just beau down to IiIh ofllco."  "Verr woll." nho anld. "Ton enn not  your hnt nnd cent on tho chair Just in-  Hido tho kitchen door thoro; Hum como  horo." A look of surprluo crowed tlio  youug iimu'rt mew; thon bin liJtio eye*  twinkled with fun, and ho tinning to  rin Imv Wi!dlm������.  "What next, ma'am?" he mild submissively. Brent had boon a ������t������r jjtor-  former in tho eollogo plays, anil now ho  foil nt onco into tho part Mollie luul  assigned "him.  "Soxst I want you to hike my place  at thia nib while 1 rout. It Iwu I n  man's work perhaps, hut yon look  i-tmri* and" ���������  "Vf^'m, I'm mroner." he Interrupted  bor, "hut they thought I'd die ome,  when I had ammonia of tlio lungs."  And he bent oror tho washboard with  n fierwlre nlr.  "Of course lie means pneumonia."  Mollie said to herself. "No one would  imagine from his appearance that he  was so ignorant."  She sat on the top step and wiped  ber wet hands on Jane's apron. The  young man found time-to glance at  her now and thon. but ho did not neglect his work. Indeed, after watching  his vigorous operations for a few minutes Mollie felt it necessary to curb  his zeal.  "You will wear the curtains out if  you rub so hard." she said. "See!  This is the way." And she took his  place at the tub. Her pupil looked on  admiringly.  "Aye, there's the rub," he said softly,  for the moment forgetting his pan.  Mollie turned aud looked at him In  surprise. "Do you like 'HamletV "��������� she  asked.  Ho was on his guard again. "I. never met the gentleman, ma'am." he said,  "bein' only a poor washerman."  "Oh," Mollie exclaimed, "is washing  your usual occupation?"  "It's a good one, ma'am, as you  know, or you wouldn't bo at it j'our-  /self, beggin' your pardon." He bent  low over the tub as he made this  speech.  "Yes," she said gravely, "it its a good  occupation���������making things clean and  sweet. 'Cleanliness is nc'::c to godliness.' Now the curtains arc* i u tho rinse  water and we'll have lunch.-and then  get them on the line as soon as possible."  So they ate bread and-jelly together  on the back stops to the dismay of  Mrs. Klapper, who saw thein from an  open^-window.  When Dick came home from tbe of-,  fice a little later she met hiin at the  door. "Well," he said to her, "1 suppose you've had two'callers this morning���������the man after work and my old  friend Carrol. I was surprised when  he walked in."  ,   Mrs. Klapper looked mystified.  "Only one man came," she said.  "He's here now, helping Miss Mollie  wash curtains. They were sitting on  the steps awhile ago, eating a cold  lunch together. You'd be frightened  If you knew how she's trusted that  strange young man. I told her it was  dreadful risky, but she said she'd trust  him exactly as she would any friend  of yours, and sho liked him much better���������all but his language, which was  ;acitjil3_aj_L4jr^^  heard her, too, for he's been freer than  ever since."  . Dick stalked through the house and on  to the back porch. A ciitftess, collarless  young man was hanging curtains on  the line. Dick could not eee his face,  but there was something familiar about  those broad shoulders.  "Brent Carrol," he said with a chuckle, nnd was down the step9 with a  bouutf.  Mollio'a assistant turned, finger on  lips. "Hush," ho whispered, "she takes  me for a washerman, and I liko tho  job." It was too late. Mollie's quick  ears had caught tho word of warning  and an explanation was unavoidable,  i I'm suro that sho forgave him, for  ho Is still In her service, Cupid does  not always slay his victims with arrows���������sometimes ho uses soapsuds.

Next j  to him at the table was a noted Newport bflle, Miss X.  The conversation had drifted to a discussion-of things American, and Lord  D. made some disagreeable remarks  about some Americans he had met and  some Yankee customs he abhorred.  "Why, d'ye know," he continued,  with an unpardonable want of tact,  "that at some of the places I dined in  America I saw "people eat with their  knives and spill their soup on the tablecloth."  Miss X. was thoroughly provoked by  this time, but she replied with apparent unconcern:   ,,.  "What poor letters of introduction  yon must have Iu)d. my lord."  There was no more unpleasant talk  about Americans that evening.  Lockjaw.  As to lockjaw, the Tasteur laboratories send out a steady supply of antitoxin serum that will prevent the outbreak of-this disease, very" much as hydrophobia. In both cases, it is true,  the treatment is only preventive, not  curative, but this is usually suflicient,  since the danger is plainly indicated in  advance. If by some sad oversight hydrophobia does break out it always  kills just as it always has killed, but  ..with lockjaw thero is still a chance of  saving life, even after an outbreak, by  inoculating lockjaw antitoxin directly  into the brain.

They havo also  secured an option on fifty.-additional.-  inih's oi' grading if they can handle  it. In Mr..'

The railway  starts in the colony, <going t-wenty-  livo miles ^ast towards Battleford  from the fourth meridian-- Air Gay  is confident that the Canadian North-  orn will have thoir lino graded  through to Edmonton by next' midsummer.* The rails will be laid as  far as thq British colony by August,  3 90-1, and on through to Edmonton  before the snow flics.

TJie Cost of tlte Ayoph&c- Houso Per  Square Foot.  Taking the country as a whole, are  the conditions favorable just now for  home building? 'This question wa������  asked of a number of architects and  builders in different sections.  It fa as ggod a time to build as it is  likely to be is the opinion of tlie men  interviewed. The price of material is  rather high, but wood, which of course  in house building is generally the principal material, is "up" to stay, and  plumbing and masonry are probably  on a fair, basis.  The early fall is a good time to begin house building l'ii-the northern latitudes. The foundations may then be  put'in under favorable conditions, the  work well advanced beforo frost and  the structure closed ln before snow >  flies, while the interior may bo finished  to advantage during tlie winter, when  tlio artificial heating gives a dry air  and an even temperature. This enables the flooring and other finish to bo  fitted nicely and tho varnish and-paint  to dry in.  A house begun in September could  very well be finished by Ecbruary or  March, five or six mouths being sufficient time for the average work to be  carried out to advantage, ��������������������������� This is,'on  the whole, rather less expensive than  to build in the spring, as there is less  delay on inside work.  Experience shows that the average  two and a half story house with-the  usual fittings can be built for;.$3 or $4  per square foot of ground covered, according to the quality of finish desired.  The-advance in the cost of building has  been from 20 to 30 per cent in the past  ten years. &  Many architects urge their clients,  where they cau afford it, to build of  brick rather than wood. The cost of  brick is relatively less today than it  ased to he. Wood shrinks'and swells  and burns. Wood has to bo painted  and grows shabby with time. Brick  takes on a better tone and texture wltli  time, does not shrink and swell and"'  won't burn. Vines will grow on the  brick wall. Repairs are less; insurance  rates aro less. The brick house is  cooler in summer and mucu more'economically heated iu winter, and, built  Willi a hollow wall, it is entirely free  from dampness. The cost of a brick  ^avoi_^_vi:Qod(m-.honse_Js_lO_to_liLpxjt___  cent as a general thing, but the difference is mado up in smaller bills for  coal and paint.  The tendency now is toward fewer  and larger rooms; to have at least oue-  large living room in the house;*in the-  smaller house to mako the hall a reception hall, doing away with tho reception rootn or parlor. The kitchen.  Is being more carefully planned, as-.  people realize the.,'importance in the  daily comfort and economy of the convenient and well planned kitchen.  There was a time when tho superficial  features.wero given undue consideration and when a house was planned  with reference to tbe rare occasions of  .fcarly and reception.

Wheat���������The week itt wheat trad-.j  has Iwon dull, and for tho most part  tho tondency of prices has been downward. In the American speculative  markets thero has been a gradual decline until yesterday, whon a lair reaction took placo. The result-on tho  week's trading in these niurke:s  shows a decline of ic to ij-c ou the  December delivery, but the May delivery is practically unchanged. There  is not much change in tho general  condition of the trade tho world  over, but last week the Black Sea  shipments were less, and American  exports wero larger. This week, with  slightly lower prices, export trade  has been more active, und this week's  exports from both, coasts arc the  largest of any- week since the first  week in June.  Demand by European countries continues, oa a liberal scale, and consumption of. brcadstuffs. both iii Europe or America shows littlo or no  falling off, although latterly there  arc reports that tho American milling trade finds business less activu.  Crop news shows no variation from  a week ago, and the Australian and  Argentine harvests aro a week nearer  being secured. Growing winter wheat  in America is generally doiifg well,  some ports where complaints of dry  wcathei~wer6rbegmning���������to���������be-hear-d-l  liave had good rains.  Trade" in' Manitoba wheat shows no  change in character from a week ago.  Prices have declined in sympathy  with the decline in American' markets, but, the volume of trade is on,  a modem te scale. Exportors still  find thoir business very .slow and difficult to work, and act unsatisfactory  is'tho handling of i wheat at country  points that the principal elevator  companies have decided to decline  buying, und only keep thoir houses  open i'or storing and shipping for  furpicra or other shippers. This decision has been arrived at on" account of  the uncertainty of tho grading' of  much of thia year's crop. Much  money has beeu thrown away by  buying at country points losing  grades on tha wheat bought and it  would seem that the only remedy is  to stop buying and allow farmers to  ship thoir wheal tlvMiiHulves ami take  tlio jink ol' the grinliiig.

As a sequel to tho late marine  disaster, ami in . view of the fact  that no craft wa3pnt<tinul)le to send  to .he tfcone of the wreck, much  commoni is rife regarding the custom of the Dominion Government  in putting the Canadian Navy  (otherwise the Quadra) out of cotn-  raission in the winter months, when  her services would perhaps be  urgently needed. A Government  vessel should be available at all  'times .and-more especially in the  winter, when life or property at sea  may be endangered, to Bay "nothing  of utorm displaced bouys, &c.  The Perils of the Sea.  The late shocking disaster within  eight of Victoria by which so many  lives were lost by the breaking up  (������������������he term ;\dvipedly) t,f the ill-fated  " Clailaiu," revive, in'"'this ihe  20th .century oi advanced art,  science and civilizalion, ihe old  feoling of the perilousnesB of the  lives of those who "go down to the  tea in ships." Centuries ago, shipbuilders put all the strength into  vessels which thoir instinctive  dread   of' the   elements to  which  those barks we^e to be left to the  mercy of, and which their mechanical ingenuity co'.ild get out o,' the  materials they were forced to use.  Those old builders, of few and crude  ideas, and wiih primitive tools and  limited material, feiill and all built  ships which would withstand th<-  force of tho.ocean'e buffeting, and  though experience in  those  days  was dearly bought with ihe price of  many lives, the hulk of tho?e lives  were lost, not from structural weakness of their '.hips, but mainly  from   geographical   and   scientific  ignorance,   There was no falling to  pieces of a vessel in a sua way because of the weakness of tfieaik.  the scantiness of keel and keelson,  or by reason of .the ribs being fow  find far between,   or of i-kimped  fastenings.    In theui latter day.-,  howovor, days of improvement in  shapes of hulls and top gear, of improvements in fastenings, of groat  steam ongines built of tho strongest  steel and iron, powerful enough to  drive tho ship against any storm, of  accumulator!  experiences  of hundreds of years of mistaken, mirfnr-  tunes and exploded ideas, a uiulo>ii  ship-building firm htiildw in n fow  months, a palatial pus^ugor boat  for a short run of 40 mi (us from  land to land across a strait whioh  is almost Itiml-lookod from thu fury  of tho open ocean,   Sho in hnili on  tho most   modern   and  approved  lines.

The  end then soon cu mo, and the ship,  not yet one year old, the builders  of which  would have laughed to  scorn  the rueihods   employed   by  those who built even the comparatively modern ships used by Nelson, sank out of sight, virtually in  pieces, with a loss ef life which has  spread gloom along the whole coast, j  She was " built like a basket, and  leaked like a sieve "    Apart from  the. danger arising from .the rise of  flimsy vessels, this crust is lamentably deficient in light-houses, and  more so in life-saving stations. The  scena of the "���������Clallam7'  disaster,  though free from martime obstructions,   nevertheless,   in   a   south-,  westerly gale, such as was blowing  at the time, becomes dangerous in  the possibility of &��������� vessel becoming  disabled, which may happen without any structural weakness in the  hull, and in such case, the mass of  islands, and reefs, with their attendant currents and tide rips, lying to leeward, make the destruction  of the ship more than probable, and  here, if at any place, right in the  track of the main traffic of B.C. and  thn Sound, should there be a well-  equipped life station. 7  The details ofthe disaster are top  harrowing to read. Many remarks  are made as to what should or  should not have been done. Let  us refrain from personal comment  until the affair is investigated. No  doubt all concerned did what seemed best under the circumstances,  and at the present time, we can  only know that the vessel was not  strong enough to stand tho sea.  Whether or not that sea was, at the  time, violent enough to disable ihe  strongest ship, remains to be proved  Men_jvho think they jtnow gay_it  was not.  i    School  Statement ������  For Year ending December 31, 1903  RECEIPTS.
