RECTOR IS  CENSURED  Tlie Bishop of St. Albans has sent  a fetter to tlie Rector ot Little Can-  field  concerning  Uie alleged scandal  at the burial ol Miss- Edith "Franklin^  the     daughter  of a Canfieid   farmer,  says a London  paper.   There      had  been     a difference between the girl's  father and  the rector, and when   the  hotly     was piesented  for  bunal the  rector, the Hev.  T. Hill, refused    to  allow it to lie taken into the church  Tlie bishop m Ins letter says. "You  have not bsought forward the very  least justification for tlie offensive  and uncharitable words used to tho  mourners, and if Mr. Franklin should  think fit to take proceedings against  you for this unseemly interruption  of the service, I shall ������eei bound to  allow the case to go forward.  "I can ftutexpress my severe   cen-  suie ofthe course which you      have  thought lit to pursue,  and give you a  clear     monition   that   in fatuie you  aie not to refuse  to take any bodies  into     the chuicli  except  on sanitary  grounds "   ���������o���������   O'BRIEN'S  CHALLENGE  .laek O'Brien's  sweeping challenge  to Jim Jeffries.-on the eye of   his departure     for tlie  East sent'.a thrill  through the sporting realm. It     was  the talk of the town, says the    San  Francisco Bulletin.   Jack's defr   tothe  Goliath.of pugdom was like a     bolt  fro-m a cloudless  sky,   Of course   the  possibility of the match', and tho probability of the   outcome,      if made,  were     argued pro, and con.    Despite  his protesting,     consensus of opinion  .seemed     to be   that. Jeffries  would  fight  again,   but-  he must be  shown  where he can add materially- to   his  exchequer before he will take another  whirl     in the ring.   In other words,  Jeff >will hot fight Ior the  sa"Ke      of  fighting.  "Let O'Brien beat a couple of men  like Hart and Berger, and you will  hear  from Jeffries."  said one   sport  close up to Jeffries' throne last night  "Right now the. public is not clamoring loud enough  for Jeffries to come  out of  retirement,   but   if Jack  goes  on,  cleans     up the gang. etc.   there  will-   b������ plenty   of noise.    O'Brien's'  hackers will taunt Jeff about being  afraid   .of him,     aird this will make  him sore, and you will see him drop  the ^plow and hoe and reach   or   , the  big milts again.

According to his first  announcement as contained in the advertisements . there was so iarg,c a  demand elsewhere for the shares that-  only a very limited number had i>cei*  allotted for sale "fin this province. After the disposal of the stated 'number,  no further shares would lie sold here.  The shares went off like tho proverbial hot-cakes, or a race-horse hastening to wm a prlie. Everybody wh->  was anybody at all and who had the  necessary moneyi subscribed. Some  wanted lots of %wo thousand or three  thousand shares; but the applicants  for these amounts were informed thai  the number on hand was so lirnii-i  that no single person would be p.ilj...-  ed to have more than one thousand  shares. This arrangement whetted  the appetites of the public  and  soon  --...the shares allotted to- British Columbia were exhausted. Mr. Rfcbinson  went away; but he returned in a  short'time, with a fresh batch- which j  he said had been aiiokted for British  Columbian consumption as a special  favor. , These went off as rapidly as  the first, and, if we are correctly n-  lormed, he came a third tin>2 with a  third special      allotment,   which  was  ������������������:���������: also quickly sold.

More fatalities have their origin in  or result from a cold than from any  other cause.   This fact alone should  make people more careful as     there  is no   danger  whatever  from  a cold  when it is properly treated in the beginning.

It acts on  nature's plan, loosens the cough,'relieves the lungs, opens  the secretions and aids nature in  icstoring-    the system     to a healthy  condition.
