A special train will leave here on
Monday for thc convenience of those
wishing to attend the concert to lie
given in that city on Monday evening by Miss Jessie iMacLaclilau and
her company. The train loaves Lady

It will not be known unlit
forenoon sonic time whether
there will be a city league game of
foottall here tomorrow or not. The
local football men are trying to arrange a nuitch with Nanatoa tor tomorrow, to be played in ttat city,
antl they cx|iect word regarding thc
game this forenoon. 01 course, II
the Naihaimciitcs accept thc challenge
there will he no match here tomorrow. However, il Nanaimo can not
sec her way clear to play, the Bow-
cry and Centralias will, in all likelihood come together tomorrow on
the bunker grounds.
II they do, there will be some disappointed lootliall enthusiasts tomorrow afternoon after the match,
because there are many who arc
sure that the Bowery team Is the
stronger, while others are equally
positive that the. Centralias will
keep their lead in the league.
No matter which team wins, it
will have to play a hard game to
carry off the score, and thc match
should lie an exciting one. However,
no bets should he made until word
is received from Nanaimo, as it
would be a shame to tie up much
money on a local game which may
not come off for a week, when it can
lie placed to advantage in Naniaimo.

At the council meeting on Monday
|cvuning, 'Aid. I'l'en introduced a
schema which he thought would be
a money-saver for lhc city. He suggested that the tire-fighting apparatus bo brought into use for the burning of the various piles of slumps
scattered throughout the city. The
hose will not be used to extinguish
the lire, however, but rather to aid
it in its work ot destruction. Aid.
Uren explained that it was necessary!
to remove all the dirt Irom*tlie logs
,nd stumps before tlicy would burn,
and this roijuired considerable work.
He thought that instead ol tho olty
paying a couple of men- to do this
work il could be done mucin cheaper
by merely turning a strong stream ol
water on.thc pile for a lime nml
washing any surface dirt off which
might be clinging lo the piles. II
could, ho thought, also he usctl to
advantage in loosening the din at
tho Uasc of stumps which were lo be
burned.

subject, and tlmuiyht s-Jre scht'ltw fi-ris-

city were to exempt Hie water

the hydrants free for llie use of llie
city in case ol fires, elc This has
Ireen found to Its' of atlvnltl.t^r In the
city, riind when Hie Question was]
brought up at a previous mooting of r
the council it was thought best     to
allow Ihe mailer In resl at. present
until a new council were elected.
The letter received Monday nirtlit
reopened the pjuostion. li was found
that it is Impossible for lhc council
to make a lasting agreement to this
effect willioril  previously passing   n\
hy-law, which would require the assent ol (lie rate-payers, They could, |
however, agree Unit thc matter con-]
liiuii' as in lite past, and at the expiration ol their term recommend to j
the in-coming council that a by-lawi ]
of this nature bo passed. Accordingly this wus done, and the clerk instructed to   notify  the   water comb |

and wonder to arctic explorers to
find such quantities ot singing birds

are preserved in snow, whicli begins
to melt ahout the* time tlic songsters
appear, antl Uren they least royally

gontly. "What's the matter, my dear

tossed him into a large curtained
