The picture shows one of such deeds Two troopers are  closely pressed by the enemy. The horse of one is hit.  Under the withering fire, the man whose mount is unharmed  halts, and, risking everything, waits to get his comrade safely  mounted behind him and carry him back to the Canadian  lines. It is a desperate deed, and one often performed but  seldom noticed. When, however, such an act is seen, the  reward dear to soldiers' hearts above every other is the  result.

'Students  of , taxation   problems,  agree that land ancl income are Uie  ,tvvo  most jii&t   bases  on which" to  levy taxation/'  Taxes, imposed' on  property, and   on -income   derived  from that'property aro simply tricks  to levy double taxation on the same  factors, and for shifting the burden  from those" who  can   afford to bear  taxation to those who invest in'in-.  dustries and enterprises which*ter.d  to  develop ,the country  and  give  employment to labor in the utilization of raw  products.    In   taxing  land,  those who hold it solely for  use apart from  speculation .should  not be taxed, but from the speculative ancl .unearned increment values  the state hasione^of "the  most just  and legitimate sources of,taxation.  The taxation  introduces by the  McBride  government vvas a device  of men absolutely ignorant of economics, and as such is going to have  a most serious gffecton the province.  Already   the  "fR    C.   Savings   and  Loan Company has decided io withdraw from biisines- in the province  in consequence of the exces=ivc burdens imposed.    A=   a   iesult of the  exorbitant assessment of merchants'  stocks, large portion* of which may  be   wholly    unremiinerative   from  year  to   year,   wholesale   men  say  they will 'have to leavej.be province.  On "this   point   the opinion of.two  leading   wholesale   firms   of   Vancouver is worth quoting.  ���������'Itis iniquitous,"says R. Martin,  of Martin & Robertson, '' and is a  blow at the wholesale houses. Et  adds another weapon which the  houses of Winnipeg can use against  Vancouver and Victoria." Robert  Kelly said it simply meant the  wholesalers would have to shift  their quarters, because of the addition of one per cent, on the value  of the stocks earned.

About   Table  Service.

During the first courses the oyster  ,fork. the sou]) spoon, the silver knife  nnd fork for the fish mid the steel knife  nnd silver fork lor the moiit alone appear, and if one of* those' courses is  omitted the silver that helongs to it  is, of course, omitted also. The knife  and fork for the game, the fork for the  salad and the fork and spoon for the  dessert are passed when the courses  are served. There is n growing laxity  in table manners. liven the best bred  people think nothing of loaning ono elbow on the table when speaking and of  being ciuite bendablc and easy'in manner.

Now that the service is being improved and has been extended till midnight the system should  -be'-macle,-use of as far as possible*  by the business people and private  residents.   The Post Office, Custom  PIousp,   Dominion    Express    antl  such.other institutions should'all  be connected  with  thc   telephone  system.   'The1 company, will spend  $7,000 during the present year in  improving the system by putting in  a complete ineiiillic circuit so as to  avoid the hum caused by induction  in   ilu* evenings   when  the'electric  light i" on, ami  by improving the"'  cent 1 a I arrangements at the station.

The past year has been a prosperous  one in banking circles, and the banking returns show the vast expanse in  the business of Canada. The November  circulation   this year   was   three  million doll.ns gi eater than TNovem,  ber cil dilation last year. The greatest  amount of notes in ciiculntion at any  time during the year was $71,339,031,  or within about eight and a half  millions of pnid-upc.ipital The paid-  up capital of the banks has been increased by about six and a half million dollnis during the year, and that  has enabled inns of tho-bnnks to ,use  tbeii own notes without having to  borrow fiom the bigger banks ns some  of them weie obliged to do l.ist>enr.  The deposits of the public without,  interest have incieased .about two  million as'conipaied with November  last year; and the deposits ie-eeiving  interest have incieased nbnit two and  a .half millions as compared with  Octol>er, and nearly eight millions as  compared with it year ago. C*ll loans  in Canada have been contracted from  $51,1)58,911 for November, 1902, to  $40,728,320 for October this year, iind  $39,109,610 for last month.  Neuralgic Headache is Usually  Attending with blinding pain, but  relief comes qu'ckly when Nerviline is  applied, for it is thc strongest pain-  reliever in Die world. "I consider  Nerviline a most magical remedy fos  neuralgia. I am subject to violent  attacks, writes Mr. E. G. Harris of  Baltimore, but never worry if Nerviline fs in the house. The prompt relief that Nerviline brings makes it  piiceless to me. A few applications  never yet failed to kill the pain. I  car. also recommend Nerviline for  stiffness in the joints and rheumatism." Try Nerviline yourself.  Fricc 25e.
