The game, in  Kpite of the roughness cannot be  called a dirty one.

A safe rule to apply to the      servant girl   who  isyour maid   of    all  work is not lo ask her to do anything!  that you would  not do yourself.      A  woman told me   thc other day      of  having a Danish maid who embroidered    monograms  in    her  tablecloths,  and  who took upon herself the whole  task of keeping the table linen  mended and     in  order.    It was   not only  done beautifully,  but she took     the  point of view that as   her employer  paid for her time,  and she   had plenty  of leisure, it should  not be called  extra service.   The kind of a mistress  who could   keep such   a servant   after  and      there was  a light  force  pump  that   had    to be worked   once  a day.

PRESIDENT HOWARD IS  VISITING NANAIMO  I see   that  once in a while that I know will   be him to task.  across  the  molestation.  President Howard, of the Western  Fuel Company, was a passenger on  today's train for Nanaimo, where he  will spend a week or ten Ways. Mr.  Ifowufil states that .the coal conditions are remaining steady and that,  the demand-*is fair and tnat he hopes  the same market i_pnditions will continue, and' while the competition  from fuel oil is* very strong, he expected the demand for Island coal  would continue (o give steady employment at: the mines. Mr. Howard slated thai, by next July the  Nanaimo mines would  h_ in a Condi  tion to turn out two thousand tons  a Way-if the market demanded that  amount. As shipping and selling  agents for this Wellington \mines, the  polity of the Western F'uel Company-  is to sell t'.s niiiich-coal mined a't;-: Extension as.at Nanaimo, ^ course,  conditions governing the same, that  is, some months the .shipments would  be greater from one-port than from  the other, but at the end of the  year they i will average about1 the  same.

WHY WOMEN SHOULD'  WEAR HATS IN   CHURCH  An   English  vicar says:  Let us consider the reasons why a  Christian woman should cover her  head���������what these principles of the  apostles were--  Mams priority ot creation. Adam  was first formed,  then Eve.  Tbe manner of creation. The man  is not of the woman, but the woman  of-the m-xn.  The purport of creation. The man  was not erected for the woman, but  the woman for tbe man..  Results in creation. The man is  the image, of the glory erf God; but  woman's the glory of man.  Woman's priority in the fab. Adam was not deceived, but the woman, being deceived, was in the  transgression. .  The marriage rcl-atuVn As the  church is subject to'Christ, so lit  the wives be to their husbands-  The headship of man and woman.  The head of every man is Christ, but  the head of woman is man. i  And  this is the twentieth century! out of .'his course not even 'Being con-  ���������World.

In ,the last two issues of The Ledger have appeared articles giving the  opinions of experienced mariners on  the coast, that Captain Johnson was',  in no'way to blame for the disaster  to the Valencia. According to the  captains whose statements have been  published the Valencia's master-was  taken out of his course by a treacherous current which has been running- and which brought other vessels  within an ace of sharing the Valencia's fate. When caught in.this current ."and in a thick fog, as undoubted  ly the Valencia was, it is *im|f|ossi-  ble for shifs' officers, by soundings,  to discover that- theirr ship is out of  its- : course. In the current the  soundings off Carmanah would be the  same as they should be off Umatilla  Reef. While The Ledger heartily  approves of the investigations, being  made by the authorities, it publishes  statement's of mariners in fairness  to the late Capt. Johnson, who by a  great many is 'being accusetl of incompetence, etc., the possibility of  his     not 1 being *!_ blame for     being DAILY LBDQBR  THE DAILY LEDGER  l->jblished   every day except Sunday.  *-_        THE       DAILY       LEDGER  COMPANY.

The city wants electric lights  ���������a system owned by the people, installed as cheaply as is possible for  a good plant to be provided, and  want, if it is'- i*ossi'l)Lci that \t &> a  water power plant. The council aic  so fax ������������������'. ,ve can learn fully in accord with the i*cople imtbis, and we  look to see Mayor Nicholson and his  colleagues ta'*c up the question at  an early day.  A knowledge of Bush creek and itls  possibilities can best be acquired by  the Council by a personal inspection  and if found .advisable.by surveying  and getting reports on it, its tributaries and the chances of increasing  its volume Jiy turning iu McLeoo's  or possibly other streams. A reasonable sum of money expended in  this  way  will not he money  wasted.  In case it is found by the Council  lo he impracticable to secure waller  power, a fair estimate, with full  planss.of cost of installation and annual m_|hit|ai nance, should be placed  before the, public with a recommendation by the Council. We believe  if this is done and as clearly understood by the public as it should  be, there will" be no. opposition lo  raising iby debentures of the city  sufficient money to install a pcoper .  system for the improvement thus se- !  ���������cured will add more to the value of  taxable* property by far than the li- j  abilities from taxation incurred.

School learning should sink into, the  character and deportment and only exhibit itself as the perfume of a flower  is exhibited���������in a subtle, nameless and  unobtrusive manner.

Mathematics  should render her mind clear and ber  judgments true. : Her geographical  studies should teach her that the w.orld  is too small for falseness to find a hiding place, and history should impress  ber that life is;too short for unworthy  ambitions. The time between tbe  schoolroom and the altar should not be'  a mere harvest time of pleasure, but  a sowing time for all,the seeds of kindness and self-sacrifice for others and  of unselfishness and benevolence which  alone'can make her a happy wife and  mother.���������New York Weekly.

Coal petroleum and  Illuminating gas are related to one another   much   as   are   ice,   water   and^  steam.    For this reason perfect combustion of liquid fuel is already ad--  vanced a long step towrd vaporization, just as ice is advanced toward  steam when turned into water.    Tho  volatile elements of coal are locked up'  in solid form, or virtually frozen solid.  Professor   Dewar   demonstrated   how  great an amount of beat must be tak-  eu from the so called permanent gases  to make them liquid and  how  much  more to make them solid.   Yet nature  has solidified gas into the form of coal,  I and solid coal, like solid ice, will only  ! dissolve  into  vapor  through  the  ex-j  I penditure of heat.  QuetMiNlaiul.
