Her conduct aroused the barber's

by the murder ol Benwell by Birch-

CIVIC ELECTIONS.
There seems to te uncommon apathy in Ladysrivith in rcgacd to the
coming civic elections. Not only
arc very few men offering themselves
for the positions on the Council
board; but those who have already
served thc lew months since thc city
has been incorporated are not many
ol them anxious to go belore the
people again lor re-election; sonic
indeed have declared that tbpy dojnot
care to run again, even if urged to
do so by the ratepayers.. This state
of affairs is by no means for the
good ol the town. We all want to
sec Ladysmith progress, but bos is
this to be hrotighc about unless
there are men found willing to undertake the responsibilities ol conducting thc civic affairs. The property qualification limits thc choice
of those cllriblc for Mayor and al.
dcrincn; but there is plenty of good
material for filling the seats at the
aldermanic board provided men pan
be found willing lo devote part, ot
their time to thc city's work. Perhaps it is not an enviable position-
that oi Mayor or Alderman-, but
somebody has got to act and it is
in the interests ol all and especially
the business men that the affairs of
the city should be in thc hands ol
practical business men, who can be
relied upon to carry out the duties
devolved upon them in a common-
sense way with enough broadness ol
view to prevent economy running into parsimony. Certain expenditures
must lie made to improve the city.
The health conditions need particular attention and the streets and sewerage work will be among the gcrat
problems that will lace thc Council
ol 11105. The town is Inst growing
out ol ils youthful clothes and a new
suit must be made bigger and broader lor the husky youngster. What
is required now that the street lev-
clt have liecn obtained, is some definite plan of improvement that can
lie started and carried along with
continuity, not a lot ol patchwork
that will continually need tearing
apart and reviewing.
One thing Is certain, the city cannot he run without money; taxes
have to lie secured lor expending on
necessary work of various kinds and
for the civic machinery.

RATHER TOO RISKY.
At a prominent works at Birmingham during the dinner hour there was
a somewhat heated argument going
on when one man, who had hitherto
kept silent, was appealed to.
"No, George," said one, "wc know
yon loves an argrJ-moi.it, an' can spout
wi' thc best on 'cm. Now, what's
your opinion on this tariff question?
"I ain't goin' to discuss it," said
George, promptly. I'l're threshed the
matter out afore."
"An' what decision did you arrive
at)?" asked one.
"Why," he replied in a cool manner, "mc an' t'other chap didn!t agree nohow. We took_different roads,
so to speak. He arrived at the 'os-
pital, an' I arrived at the police station, an' I ain't goin' to thrash that
matter out again."
Nor did they persuade him. to do
so.

GENERAL STATEMENT
30th November, 1904,
WHAT OF THE EARTH.
Can you believe that there are
millions ol people who are persuaded
that the world is not round? Tlio
cleverest men in Arabia arc absolutely convinced that tho earth is egg-
shaped and floats half submerged in
the sea; the Hindu Vedas that it is
as flat as a plate, and supported on
a number of high pillars. South American tribes,believe that it is an island afloat in an interminable sea';
ami millions ol people in India could
not be persuaded that it Is not the
shape of an enormous inverted bowl
or dish cover, supported by four elephants which have an insecure looting on the back ol a broljtagnagian
tortoise.

HE KNEW HIS MEN.
During tlie training ol in litin in
an Ayshire town a company were,ordered off lor ball-firing,, and Jock
Saunders, a man noted lor his simplicity, was singled out as marker.
Belore the firing licgan the sergeant
took up,his glasses to see il all was
ready,when, to his horros, he saw
Jock cooly standing lront of the
target. Thinking thc man mad, thc
sergeant rushed to him, calling him
a fool, and demanding the moaning of
such recklessness. "I'm no' sic a
rule as you think," retorted Jock.
"I ken the salest place wcel eneutli
for I anco marked for your company |
before." .    .
