The Last Meeting in The Year  Tlie Reports Given Out Seem to"  TREE AT  CEDAR  Indicate Good Work  On the Part of  the  Board  Trustees For the Showing  is very Favorable  of  The Ladysniith Board of School  Trustees held a meeting ��������������������������� Mr. Stewart's office on Saturday evening last  ' All the men)hers and the secretary  were present, Mr.1. C. H. Rumming in  the chair. It being thc last meeting  in tho year, the secretary had prepared a rough statement of thc expenditures of the year for the trustees. '   It is as foiiotws: ���������  Salaries     $-8,200.00  Washing and  Cleaning     685.76  Repairs and Furnishings      006.30  Fuel ���������       142.50  Water   , -. ,.     60.00  Advertising <  4.40  Insurance         39.50  Oiling floors           3-1.15  Telephone     3.25  Printing by-law        12.00  Secretary's   salary     50.00  This is the actual sum of money expended1 by      the trustees  during  the  year.   It win  be noted  that  the list  contains an  item  of $6006.30   for re  pairs and furnishings.    As will      be  6cen by the copy appearing below o:  lhe estimates     which were presented  to the council at the beginning of thc  year,  the bop.rd calculated  to expend  the'   sum of       S375  for repairs,  but  really the trustees have expended' ccln-  siderabiy less than tho sum mentioned  in the     estimate's for repairs,  as-the  furnishings for the new school, desks,  etc., cost over $300, and  this sum is  included in the $006 mentioned in thc  expenditure) statement.   When the estimates were presented the hoard did  not' calculate upon having  it     make  -these purchases.     Another fact-   that  should  be noted in  this connection is  -   that thc     cofmcil still holds thc sum  -Vjo' $300,     part of   the appropriation  ������������������^riiade by the   government for the new  Y school,   which   the  trustees   have  not-  spent on the building.     That amount  should be credited to tho trustees and  deducted   fiom the  total   amount  of  expenditure,   which  leaves  the  latter  at t<7507.85.    These facts were  mentioned1 i-ni justice to \\.>i trcscc''^. who,  on account  of the state  of pity   finances have done their utmost during the  year to cut  down  school expenses  in  order that the council might have as  much as possible remains in the treasury.; '   foi  ctrcet work,    etc.        It  ���������wilibe remembered     by an .who have  ���������taken an interest ������n  civic and  school  affairs  that   the' estimates  for  school  expenditures  presented  to the council  at the opening of the    year,        -and  which are quoted below, w-eie considered very     smali,  and the fact,  that  the   trustees     have managed tr> save  the. amount     wh ch a comparis /ii of  the expenditures and estimates shows  they have done,  reflects much credit  upon  them.  The estimates are as follows:  Teachers-' Salaries  the secretary  to   write the member  for this district,  Parker Williams, and  ask him to  procure  the $700   for the  Bpard  from  the government.

Mr. Shields,     who keeps boarders at,tokei' ofi    and  Wellington, among     others  the train  men, took a     trip down the railway  line  to  spend    Christmas.      The  cat  was supposed     to stay at home,  but  1 ry Porter, and at noon, much to the  pleasure of both,      the cat found its  it did not. This morning the train  men found the cat in one of the cars  ready for a trip.    Knowing the cat,  master and peacefully returned home,  apparently well satisfied with the results of its Christmas' trip. And yet  there are people who say that a cat  is not to be classed among the intelligent animals.

VANCOUVER, B. C.  The   "Enigmatelle" : of the London  Hippodrome' appears like a bulky man (  six    feet tall,  weighing  198 pounds.   '  its feet are of iron, the legsare      of  steel  and  wood,  and the  arms are of  steel     and copper, while  the body is  an  insulated  wire frame cased -Willi  fibre and rawhide,  and  the head is of  wax.. It is moved by three     springs  and   four  electric  motors,  with  fourteen      storage accumulators.   In its  hack   is   a switchboard  containinig the  rheostat,  fifteen  switches,, three levers  and three automatic brakes.    Although the motions are rather jerky,  the      machine     very  cleverly  walks  with   long or short     steps,  nods- its  head,   waves its arms,  rides a cycle,  and writes its name on a blackboard.  Gravitation is explained .by the new  theory of W. A. NippoUlt as due to  th'.' n.o,ion of matter having the tcn-  ���������uily usually ass'.'gncd to the ether.

Two bodies      in  space shield each other on one side,  being thus apparently attracted.  For cutting -,mctals by a jet of oxygen, the Jotrand apparatus consists  essentially of a tube with two branches, terminating in blowpipes, moved .along a guide at the rate of about  six inches  per minute.   One :blowpipe  delivers an oxyhydrogen :flame,;which  heats the metal to a dark red along  the cutting line,   A jet of pure oxygen from  the second ��������� blowpipe enters  into cooibustion ;with; the. iiot metal,  and produces a   clear, channel,. like   a  saw-cut, about an eighth- of an .inch;  Continued on page-Four  THE JONES HOTEL  One Dollar Per Day.

There is every probability  that     in  some  bygone  age the  Antarctic land  mass acted  as a bridge between some  of the     southern continents,       but  whatever it may have done 'of service  in the distribution of types for them,  it has apparently done little or noth  ing- for  itself.    Separated now      hy  some hundreds  of miles  of  very stormy ocean from the nearest ha'bitabic  lands, with currents of wind and water "all     setting  in  precisely     -the  wrong direction,  it maintains   .n almost perfect barrenness.  The Antarctic continent  now Jijbasts  of , vegetation which  includes a few  low forms of moss and lichen, and a  terrestrial  fauna,  which  consists  of  one minute and primitive form     of  wingless, insect.   Of the whales   and  seals and birds, thc last-named alone  hate any  pretension  at all  to a terrestrial habit     of life,  in  that they  use the moraines and  rocky cLifi's of  the     continental    ,shoies as nesting  sites.    But they are all pelagic   sea  birds.  Yet in this exceedingly unpromising lan'l of barren rock and ice there  are forms of life which are to; be met  with nowhere else,- and in this fact  lies the interest that, attaches, to a  study of the Antarctic fauna.���������From  "Tbe Voyage of thc Discovery," by  Capt.
