James  Hill,      an engineer' at the Haslalam  sawmill,   is  distinctive, says  a Vancouver exchange.  Briefly,  the tale is that James Hill  worked for over  twenty years     for  Mr. Haslam,  and during that     time  drew little  but bare living  expenses  from  his  wage account, leaving the  balance in  tiie care  of his employer.  When bhe crash came a few months  ago  there stood to the credit of old  Jimmy Hill | on the books of  the company over  $19,000.    Thai  large   amount  was due the old man on wage  account  with accrued  interest.

They   are  s "mountain bu.ldings"   to him,  ior he  ���������was    brought    up  in  a mountainous  country,  and the metaphor of     , the  hills  is  therefore the obvious  one to  his mind.

The years have brought an  awakening to  the woman of spirit m"  this      day.    She  is capable  of doing  more in  her home,  in charity, and in  society,  and is loath to believe that  in  fulfilling her  duties in  each       of  these she *is wasting her life or   overtaxing   her physical   strength.     -Her  purity of hearii and standard of right  riving arc as hight as wcre  those of  her   great-grandmother.

The fable of lire country mouse and  the town mouse has a foundation in  fact. Mice occasionally migrate in lais*  numbers when food grows scarce and  travel considerable distances to fresh  bouses. Farmers in a part of Perthshire bad a good reason to become  aware of this fact when, a couple of  years ago vast swarms of mice invaded  their cornfields at harvest time.  But tbe mouse only travels when It  has to. The rat. orr the contrary, seems  to take a yearly orrling, in very much  thc same fashion as do .human beings,  Kats are the most migratory creatures  in the world. Troops of nits leave the  towns nt tbe end of summer and spend  a month or two in the country, apparently'in order* to enjoy the change of  food which the country affords at that  time of the year irr tlie way of fresh  fruit and grain. Before the cold weather sets in they are all back again iu  their old quarters.  Reindeer migrate with the same regularity as swallows. They move south  when winter sets in, but as soon as ever tbe snow begins to melt they travel  steadily north, sometimes for* as much  as a thousand miles.  To end a holiday by deliberate suicide is so strange a phenomenon that  for* a long time naturalists looked upon  the stories Of the migration of the lemmings as arr improbable fiction. Yet tbe  facts are beyond dispute. At irregular  intervals these ratlike creatures start  out from their Ironies in the fastnesses  of northern Scandinavia in huge droves  numbering tens of thousands and trav-'  el steadily southward. Death pursues  them iu a hundred forms. Hawks and  other birds of prey hover above them.  Thousands are drowned in rivers. Yet  the rest struggle on until they reach  the sea. They do not stop. They plunge'  in, swim out and struggle orr until at  last their strength fails and they^  drown. Not one ever returns from this  journey of death.���������London Answers.  |    .Since the conuueucemerrl of the pre  'sent Lcrm thc teaching stall has made  some great 'improvements in  tire library room, and the little apartment  is  now fitted   up   most  comfortably.
