This is Section 1, under the  heading "Salaries." The by-law as  amended will now read as follows:  "(1.) Any teacher below the third  assistant appointed -by the Board,  shall have a salary of $40 per month  duiing six months ol trial, afterwards, .if satisfactory, shall receive a '  providing  if satisfactory, shall receive a teachers  salary  of- $50  per  month, "  Another section was also added under this heading,, which reads as follows:  "(ft) The Board reserves to itself  the right to Pay the maximum or  any part of the salary in any division to teachers who have had sufficient experience in any school to  satisfy 'the recjuinements of the by-1  laws, and are well recommended, but  such can only come into effect upon  a viote of the Board."

Had1 he succeeded in  making ^sufficient- "rain for hydraulic  anil other mining purposes Harfield  would have received $10,000 for his  summer's work.  Half of the sum was to lie ' subscribed by half a dozen big hydraulic companies and half hy the Yukon territorial government.  Hatfield was summoned before the  board to give his side of ll>? case  if he desiied. lhe liad nothing to  say. Only an inch and three-quarters of rain fell in the last month.  AH the big hydraulic and most of  the other claims are shut down for  want of water. Hatfield claims he  never made a failure lief ore. He will  not contest the decision.

Princess Ena is so much taller  than the king of Spain that when  they are standing to lie taken by  the camera the art of the photo-  graplicr is exercised in many a clever  device to bring their heads on a  level.  The queen of Italy lowers above  her king, and the stately queen of  Portugal gains added state when he-  side her husband's jovial face and  figure.  Thc czarita is in every respect  built on a moie noble scale than her  husband, and the piincess of Wales  looks more robust as well as ta.ler  than the prinoe.  This, seems to show 'that-there is  some- degree, of "inatural selection,"  as Mr. Darwin would have called1 it,  even in the weddings that are so  much matters or state as those of  kings and heirs to thrones.  The little woman, "jifct us high as  my heart," is. not in fashion nowadays; and efueens, princesses and  duchesses are all as notably affected by this modem tast������e as their less  important sisters.

MODEST CLAIMS OFTEN  CARRY  MOST  CON.VICTTON  When Maxim,    the   famous gun inventor, placed his gun before a committee of judges,  he stated its   carrying power to be much below   what  he felt sure   the    gun would accomplish.   The    result of the trial    was  therefore a great surprise, instead of  disappointment.    It is the same with]  the    manufacturers of Ghambbrlain's  Colic,  Cholera and Diarrhoea   Remedy.

While  driving along at a good clip, an automobile suddenly purled around the  coiner, and while the driver of the  rig did not at first see- it, his horses  did, with the result 'that the sudden  stop caused the driver to turn a complete seimersauLl ofver their heads land  | ing in a sitting posture in thc middle of the road, with his horses and  wagon behind him. The horses, never having seen an automobile, must  have been of tbe masculine gender,  as they displayed no curiosity at all  regarding the machine, but left the  scene abruptly, toeing the road over  which they had just passed, only .at  a much fustcr pace. The auto man,  after ascertaining, that the-driver had  received no serious injuries, started  down the road in pursuit of the flying team, 'and after some difficulty  succeeded in bringing them back. Not  much damage was done in Ihe runaway.
