FRIDAY JULY 20, 1UUU.  has,  iiowever,s not yet bee?/  Thc. jurors have examined the  Well Done Canada.    '  Hon. Sidney Fisher, Minister of Ag:  riculture, has retcived semi-otlicial notification that Canada has been awarded  the Grand Prize for its forestry, fish  and game iiiKljniner.il and agricultural  exhibits iit Paris. The - ollici.il ��������� announcement  ' made  exhibits of an educational character,  also cheese, trunks, leather, furniture  and stoves. The favorable comments  heard indicate thiit the highest prizes  vvill be given for these, but dt is not  sullici*eutly definite to say just what the  awards will be. The jurors are still at  work on the CanadiaiVexhibits.' Enormous crowds continue to attend the  Exposition and the building containing  the Canadian exhibits is thronged with  ���������is many visitors as it can hold all lhe  time.  by, utilizing an old orer ailway, temporary tracks were laid, and.the train got  through with only about three hours  lost time. The'' trackman who was  instrumental in saving the train chanced to be the same man who averted  disaster at the'carrying away of the  Cherry Creek bridge this spring, and  officials of the road; as well as passengers cannot say too much in his praise.  The passengers, it may be remarked,  took occasion, before the. train passed  on to the const, to substantially testify  their appreciation of his services. The  incident at the same time illustrates  admirably the efficiency of the patrol  system which the C. P.R. has adopted,  and w'nich makes it���������despite the  mountainous character of the country  traversed���������one of the safest lines of  travel in the known world.  Troojjb to Cross Canada.'"

The '��������� Times-IIcrald "imust. be credited witli the following .story, which  appeared iu a recent issue of ihat  pa pel :  A "matrimonial excursion" reached  New York on Thursday, personally  conducted by W. S. Withain, who c< n-  trols 3'{ ban Us and cotton mills in  Georgia, and who thinks that his  cashiers ought to he married. Inorder  lo realize this- he organizes "matrimonial excursions" which are attended  en masse by his unmarried cashh rs  and niii i riageable ladies. The "unmarried, cashiers on this trip have eight  young ladies to 'choose from, and Mr.  Wit ham hopes that his mass bridal  tour may have good .results.  There'is a clergyman a long... At a  moment's notice a marriage can.be  performed, and another bride and  bridegroom added to the present list.'  Mr. William is ready with a blessing  and a cheek for $500. Whenever-one  of his cashiers mairies, he always presents hi in with #o00.<  There are 101 .in the party. Not all,  of these, of course,,- aie brides 'and'  grooms. There are tin ee bridal parties iu lhe' excursion, and another of  the c.-isbiers"will marry as soon as they  reach' Atlanta. .Oiuik wedding took'  place just before they left Atlanta.  Regarding 'matrimony, Mr. Withnm  sa id :  '��������� A inanied man is more reliable in  ;i position of,, trust than a single innn.  A man who has a wife and a baby is  not so likely to run away as a single  man."      . /  Next  Monday  the. excursion will re-  * i  turn to Atlanta, and Mr.'Witham can  learn how profitable iu matrimony the  jaunt has been.

'  The committee were delighted with  tli is report, and they begged the sur-  , veyor to write an otiicial letter to fhe.  governnient on their behalf, askinc  that they might bo permitted to begin  the work nt once.  Ten' years afler this the surveyor  was again at'the village of Cab^cers,  aud the first question asked him was:  '"JUo you not think a'canal,could he  made from here to .ProvecneV  On his iiil'oriiiing tlioni that he had  been asked the'same question tenyear.s  before and had taken some time anil  n  ���������trouble about tho'ma tier, the chairman  replied Hint on account of politics, the  death of his father,,, etc., (he govern- '  ment letter had probably been overlooked. Search was made, the letter  ���������was found and once more all was excitement'. Nothing was talked about  but���������tlie canal.

Attached to the linker?-.  A plausible tale of a man who bought'  a loaf of bread and took away more  propeny than ho paid for is told by the  Pawiuckot, correspondent of the Providence Telegiiim. The man was in a  lnirii.Vjto catch a car.  His impatience made, the clerk nervous. She' forgot to snap the string  wliich bound the paper about the loaf,  and away sped the man with the loaf,  while the striug reeled off behind him.  lie caught tlie car all right, and, although the conductor and some of the:  passengers noticed ns he sat down  close to the door that the-twine paid  itself out as the, car rolled along, the  man did not discover the tangle until  he alighted. ,In the meantime the conductor.was having a good time., Aat  passengers stepped on the platform he  cautioned 'them not to walk on that  string, and they did not.  ��������� It might have looked mysterious to  the people who saw thc string moving  along the street, for the unraveling  continued until the buke'ry twine bobbin .had been nearly emptied by tht  connected lonf a mile mvny. The man  with the bread felt a tug.nt his loaf as  he stepped down from the car. Then  he followed up the cord, winding as he  went. ',  lie was one of those strictly holiest  men who want nothing, thtit does not  belong to'them, nnd the best part of  the story'Is that he followed the string  back, .winding ns he walked, nud hi  due time entered tho bakery and restored the ball of twltic.
