An "At Home" Will Be Held in the Methodist Church by the
Ladies of the Congregation—A New Year's
Ball in Eagles' Hall.
The students' recital given by
Mrs. Dahl, assisted by her pupils,
in the Biden opera bouse last night,
was largely attended, and proved a
brilliant success from an artistic
viewpoint. A long ami varied program was well rendered, every mini-
bar being heartily encored. Those
who took part were Mrs. Dahl, Margaret Eyre, Lynn LaBarre, Edna
and George Traunweiser, Esther
Hammar, Katie Hoffman, Mamie
Fraser, Ma joriu Kcrnmr, Norma
Manly, Pauline Dahl, Don Manly,
Trosie Barrett and Florence Manly.

has been engaged in bridge building
on the Hot Air line between this
city and Republic for the pust. mo. fi,
came home last • week to spend
Christmas with his family.
The fifth annual Christmas tree
of Knox church Sabbath school wus
held in the church on Christina's
Eve, nnd was a decided success.
The tree was beautifully decorated
and heavily loaded, nnd the scores
of children were delighted. A short
program was rendered by tbe following:
Chorus—"Glory to God," by the
school.
Recitation - 'As Good as I Can
Be," Fulton Chappie.

Then came the ever welcome Santa
Clans and distributed gifts to all the
little ones. About 175 children
were happy recipients, and a large
number of special prizes were given
for regular attendance, memorizing
of Scripture' passages, memorizing
the creed and thc books of tbe Bible
and for bringing new scholars to the
school. The attendance was large.
Thc school has closed a very successful year.
The Methodist church Sunday
school gave a Christinas tree and entertainment in the Methodist church
last Wednesday night There wns a
very gooil attendance, and a most
enjoyable evening was spent. Al.

way to overy country under tho sun.
Verily, the rays of Thk Sun will
penetrate afar.

home Saturday.
Dr. John Westwood returned from
Coleman last week to spend Christinas with his family in this oity.
Miss Edna Trautiweiser entertained a number of her young
friends Christmas night to a social
party and dance in Alberta hall.   A
ing a very credible entertain ii enl,
and the school children and all
others taking part in it deserve the
highest praise. The program was
exceptionally well rendered, considering tho short time they had for
rehearsals, and the tree was a good
one.
Tho ladies of the Methodist church
will bold an "At Home" in the
church on New Year's day hunt 10
a. m. to 10 p. in. The public is invited to attend, and more especially

ffoiii home, or old" bachelors, will

an "At Home" on New Year's day.
Many a young man away from
home, or a lonely miner spending
the day alone, bas had his heart
made glad by attending these social
gatherings, where he was heartily
welcomed and where the surroundings reminded him of home and
lo.'cd ones. Don't forgot New Year's
day at the Methodist church. No
admission.

'HJESDAY,  DECEMBER 29, 1903
Thk vexed and much discussed
salary by-law is a thing of the past.
Everything has been settled satisfactorily  to all concerned, and the
mayor now wears a pontented smile.
Some  of the aldermen, too, show
the smile, but the contested feeling
does  not accompany it.    The bylaw ns passed is the same, as originally inirodnced hy Aid. McLellan,
and which was changed in committee of the whole to embrace salaries
for the aldermen as well astheniayor.
thereby causing the tempest which
hns been rnging in thc council chamber during the past three or four
weeks.    Although  the by-law just
passed was introduced by Aid. Gaw,
Aid. McLellan is still entitled to the
■ credit for the granting of remuneration to the mayor and the defeat of
the clauses providing for aldermanic
salaries.   He  was  ably supported
throughout the fight  by Aid. Martin.
At an adjourned meeting of the
city council, held last Wednesday
evening, Aid. Gaw's by-law providing for the remuneration of the
mayor, which ho asked leave to introduce nt the previous meeting, was
advanced to its third rending. The
council then adjourned.
Last nfght the regular weekly
meeting of the city council was held
in the council chamber. Those
present were the mayor, Aid. McLellan, Martin, Gaw, Peterson and
Feeney.
A resolution was passed- authorizing the council to accept W. B.
Willcox's proposition regarding a
descriptive write-up of the city in a
special issue of the Phoenix Pioneer.
. The mayor's remuneration bylaw  was  reconsideied  and finally
"You're next" at the Yale Barber
Shop.
Thc following accounts were ordered paid: W. L. Wells, 817.50
J. H. HodBon,'S10.55.
Mr. and Mrs. Walter Hadden have
returned home from Eholt, where
they have been residing during the

Mrs. James McNicol, of Midway,
is visiting her father, John Jit
Lnren, at Carson.
Thk New Westminster Columbian
issued an 80-page Christmas edition,
profusely   nnd   handsomely    illus-
Btrated, the object of the publication
being to advertise the city and district.   The resources of the country
contiguous   to   the Royal City   are
faithfully   set  forth,  and   a    description of the city and its inhabitants is charmingly told both by pen
and camera.   The paper speaks very
highly fur the enterprise of its publisher,   It is the largest newspaper
ever printed in the province.
Bryant Larson, son of C. S. Larson, of the Republic Bottling Works,

He became lost and .perished before
help arrived. His body was found
by searchers.
EXTRAORDINARY OFFER
A radical change from old methods and prices was announced by
the Toronto News this week.   The
eyes of the newspvper world   have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have  been made  which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality.    This latest move is to place
The News at the price of 81.00 a
year by mail.   Only a deep-founded
belief in the future   success of Tho
News   could lead tho publishers to
make  such  a  reduction in price.
But just as tbe dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will   secure a vast and  ever-increasing circulation', based not only on the popular price  at which it is sold, but
mainly upon tho intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
.—our senii-weekly giving you all
the homo and district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to sec
the paper first, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.
cTWeris Siiits
From present indications it looks
as if those citizens of Grand Forks
who desire to make New Year's calls
would have to tote umbrellas along.
It is now up to every one to
"swear off" and be good. Get your
resolutions ready for the New Year.
Peter A. Z. Pare, Fred Russell,
Charlie Davey, Charlie Danhkin
and Peter Canturc have dec'aied
tbeir intentions of becoming British
subjects, and will gei their names on
the voters' list which is now being
made up for the forthcoming municipal election.
Two prominent aldermen should
swear off introducing salary by-laws
during the coining year.
John Fnrrell and Mat Sloper, two
former Grand Forks boys, arrived
from Calgary last week and spent the
holidays with relatives here.
The Grand Forks Liberal association should innke.a New Year's icso-
tion to elect none but eoiiipoterit
ollicers for 1904.
If yo'.i don't swear {off next Friday, you won't enjoy ihe pleasure
of breaking good resolutions a week
later.        ______

now for three days hand-running."
"I suppose he has done it every

replied Henry,  i
"Has he lived there all that time?"

Hit Marriage Fee.
A poor couple living In the Emerald
Isle went to the priest for marriage,
and were met with a demand for the
marriage fee. It was not forthcoming;.
Both the consenting parties were rich
fn love and in their prospects, tout destitute of financial resources. The father was obdurate.
"No money, no marriage."
"Give me lave, your rlverence," said
the blushing bride, "to go and get the
money."
It was given, and she sped forth on
the delicate mission of wising a marriage fee out of pure not-h. .g. After a
short interval she returned with the
sum of money, and the cet nony was
completed to the satisfaction of all.
When the parting was taking place the
newly-made wife seemed a little uneasy.
"Anything on your mind, Catherine?"
said the father.
"Well, your rlverence, I would like
to know if this marriage could not be
spoiled now?"
"Certainly not, Catherine. No man
can put you asunder,"
"C«uld you not do it yerself, father?
Could you not spoil the marriage?"
"No, no, Catherine. You are past
me now. I have nothing more to do
with your marriage."
"That alses me mind," said Catherine, "and God bless your rlverence.
There's the ticket for your hat. I
picked it up In the lobby and pawned

The Plague of Statistics,
I)'
&
ISCUBSINO "The Plague of Statistics" In the "Atlantic Monthly," Eugene Richard White
says:
"We have come so to rely upon numerical expression thnt numbers stand
both as end and moans; no longer dare
we appeal to the emotions, no longer
do men sway men with truth of words.
Fa.Ms, and the exact expression ol
them, nre what we seem to desire. Fast
are we drawing the chilling robes about
us; fast hnve our finer Instincts, our
higher powers, become drugged with
Bums total. Judging from the mean.*
taken to convince and excite us, as n
rac# we are becoming incapable of
any reason not expressed by one of the
great divisions of mathematics. Pythagoras would be delighted indeed to see
our reverence for numbers; for we bow
lower than did he, and for less reason,
"But what actually is the extent of
the evil? We can hardly measure the
effects aright without knowing the extent; how preatly are we afflicted by
It? The children of the imagination
were long In bondage to science. Sow
they wander, let us hope not a full
forty years, in the wilderness of purely
scientific expression, the arid, sterile
waste of statistics. What.function of
public life has not been unduly brought
under this dread (Tonialn? Understanding quantity by instinct and
quality not at all, "the appeal Is made
at once to arithmetic. Would we convince the average American? Experience lias taught that It can best be
lone by figures. The Zernh Colburn In
■!m Is most alert. Do not the news-
iripers rely upon this trait continually?
Latterly, our editorial pages are digests
of tables prepared by various commissions. Does the pulpit scorn this means
at arou: ing interest? How do we
liaise funds for starving India? The
• ■hief Instrument for routing compassion is famine statistics; the bulk of
.lie misfortune readily appeals. We
group disaster as our merchants cor-
:icr markets. Do we plead the cause of
temperance? Here statistics revel, and
they may be had patiently plotted out
oven to the number of drunkards to the
square rod in Cuyahoga County, Ohio,
or the arrests for inebriety in Kokotno-
Indiana, for 1800. What seems to be
thti crux In literature? How appraise
the success ot a book save by the
number ot copies sold In a given time?
How ascertain the merit of a play save
hy the number of nights it "ran" In the
dramatic centers? Thus is our American mark set on what is what. We go
vbuut reforming and purifying the
world* with a committee report at el-
1k»'"V and a statlstlcaJ compilation In

A Dream's Fulfillment
IN an essay In "Longman's Maga-
zlno" on dreams, Horace G. Hutchinson invited people to send him
accounts of their own experience?
.nd Ideas, and as a result he was de
luged with thousands of letters relat
ing to dreams. These lie studied care
fully, and In a volume entitled "Dreamt
and Their Meanings," now presents hi'
conclusions, and quotes the most strlk
in* contributions to Illustrate the par-
leular diss of dream which he Is dis
(Wising. An Interesting class of dream:
H that in which the sloeper finds him
'el! In a certain house or room that It
amlllar to him In dreams, but qultt
intnown to hi.*} waking hours. Here
.Is nn instance which Mr. Hutchinson
elates:
'A certain lndy dreamed frequently
pf a certain nous* until it hid become
exceedingly familiar to her; she knew
all Its rooms, its furniture; It was at
well known to her as that In which she-
lived her waking life, and, like a good
wife that has no secrets from her husband, she often talked over nil the details with him, a very pleasant fancy.
One day they (husband and wife) went
into the country to see a house that
they thought of taking for the summer
months. They had not seen It, but the
account In the house-agent's list had
attracted them. When they arrived before It, they gave a simultaneous exclamation of surprise. "Why/ Bald the
husband, 'it Is your dream-house!' 11
was. The coincidence attracted them.
Ti.ey took the house.
"In the course of their occupancy
they learned that tho house had the
reputation of being haunted; thnt several people before them hud taken it
for short terms, but hud seen—or fancied they had seen—'something,' and
had left before their term of tenancy-
expired. Had thesd new tenants noi
brought their own old servants with
them It Is likely they would have had
socne difficulty In whipping up a do
meitlQ stnn*. so uncanny was the reputation of their apparently quite reputable house. The new tenants dwelt
In the house with all satisfaction and
peace through the summer months, until their term of tenancy came to an
eud. On leaving, husband and wife expressed their satisfaction to the local
agent. 'The only thing,' said the wife,
•that we were disappointed In about
the hou.se Is that we never saw the
ghost.'
" 'Oh, no,' s.tlrMhe ghost agent. 'We
knew you would not see the ghost,'
"'What do you mean?" asked the
wife, rather nctiled.
" 'Oh,' the agent repeated, 'we knew
you would not see the ghost. You are
the ghost that people have always seen
here,'"
