He asked the council if they were anxious to  loi the Aldermen present that a 'lru- |lakc ain steps in,this directi  pint Officer^ under the new school law,  was not really necessary, ami while  the matter was being discussed Mr.  0,'Connell asked the Council to accept his resignation. Upon being told  [that the Council could not accept a  verbal resignation Mr. O'Conuell im-  'mediately handed in a written one,  jwhich on a motion by Aid. Bryden,  'sccondedby Alderman JVich olson,  'was accepted and a vote of thanls  'tendered to-Mr. O'Conuell ioi-the efficient manner- in which he had discharged his duties during his term of  office.  Respecting the Sanitary Inspector  'question, Alderman Bryden thought  it. was absolutely necessary to have  that office filled and it, would lie a  good idea to offer it to the pound-  keeper.  Alderman Blair agreed with Alderman Bryden.  Alderman Nicholson was iiot satisfied that, the law demanded that a  Sanitary Inspector be appointed, tin  less it did he thofghtl, - in present circumstances it would not be  wise to go to unnecessary expense.  It ;it was essential that the office be  filled .'he was in favor of having E.  Nicholas appointed.  Aftersome further discussion Aid.  Nicholson-moved; seconded by,"Aider!  man Bryden, that the qneslion bo  left over for one week and in the  meantime the clerk to look iip the  law. relating to this matter, and if  he finds it necessary to have an ap-  j.ijiiitment made to interview "the  pounelkeeper and ascertain if he  jvoidd be willing to discharge the.iiit-  ies.   The motion was carried.  The clerk    reported that according  ion.  Alderman M.ilone thought thai- as  the town was very.peaceable it was  not necessary to go to the expense  of paying a ,i:o'Sce constable. Alderman Nicholon did not favor going to  the expense ot paying a'ski ary; to; a  police constable where so ,in1any dim-  pi ovements weie "needed on the  streets. , He had looked up, the Mu-  nijipal- Clauses Act and had found},  that it was not , according' tolaw,  absolutely necessary for the-city to  provide a police constable.- ' -If they  deem it advisable the City, Council  can make arrangements' with-the, government to have the town protected  by a provincial constable. '  The Mayor remarked "that although  the Council were anxious to give employment wherever work in the" city  was to be done, at the same time  the citizens shl'uld recognize the fact  that the Council were not elected only to give employment to citizens,  but to act in the .bjust interests ol  the city, and to run the city! as'economically, as possible, i ���������-���������������������������  The ��������� jquesti'/ii' was allowed to drop.

Entering; a  small  restaurant  of  somewhat  doubtful  aspect.,  he oider-  cd a mutton chop..   The waiter, after  a long delay, returned bcuing.a plait*  on      which  reposed a dab of mashe.l  potatoes     and a much overdone chop  of microscopic proportions and   with  a remarkably long and slender rib at-  taohed^   Clapping   this*  down   briskly  before the famished artist, the waiter started  to attend  to  another customer without further ceremony.  "See here," called I-lcrford,  "1 ordered a chop." ~"  "Ycssir,"answered 'the man,  "there  it is."  "Oh,   beg pardon;  that's true," returned J-Ierford, peering.at it closely,  "I   thought     it  was a     crack   inthe.  plate:"���������Sal urdayEvcning I'ost.   o   SOME GOOD  ADVICE  '   TO   SCHOOL  GIRLS.  Speaking recently to the girl students of Queen's College, 1 Lu ley  street, (he Bishop of Loudon said  that during his Lenten conferences in  the West End he,found girls loth lo  explain their religious difficulties to  him.'  "Although they were noL -afraid of  me," he said, "they were terribly  afraid of one another. Afterwards T  received letters saying,, 'We could  not talk mi the presence of others,  but if you can see us two by .two,  wc can explain further.'  "I believe in a gill having a good  time," the Bishop explained, "particularly at. that time of life which  should be the 'happiest, but she  should have the ,law of proportion in  her life. The tone of e\ery bourn  where a girl may stay will not be  what she is accustomed to, and she  will either have to fall to Ihat tone  or to raise to that tone.  "Gills    exercise an enormous      influence on  the  men  they  meet,"  ad.  :led  the Bishop.    Man's ideals of purity,  ,  truth and honor were unconsciously based upon the woman with  whom  he came  in  contact, and    the  Bishop urged the girls to carry with  them   the  aroma  and   influence      of  their college all  through   their  lives.  "A girl on   leaving school,"     declared Dr. Wilmington Ingram, '.'finds  herself m the world of society Avhich  sweeps her  from  her niooringe altogether."   He advised the students of  Queen's   College   lo   have   a ilufmitml  olan  as      to how   they  would spend  ?ach day.    ,  VST  Union  .rawing'  NANAIMO,   B.
