A pioposition \\a< laid bclore.the  boaid fiom the tmstees of the public  school asking for an -ippropiiation of  ij.375 for the purpose of conducting a  high school foi the balance of this  year. In discussing the matter the  real question seemed to he as to  whether it shall bo free to pupils or a  fee charged. The conclusion come to  wis that the.itpproprintion asked for  be made; tlnit the school be hue for  this ye.tr, and that the ratepayers be  asked at the Januiuy election whether  they dcsiic it to be fiee in the future  or not. t  A communication was icad fiom the  Turf club asking  for a  fifteen  ycaiV  lea**o of the city pailc  tit  a  nominal  rental of IfL per annum.    'Should this  be granted they propose  to erect suit  able buildings  and make  a new  race  track.    They also made it a condition  of the lease that the city give a supply  of water fiee.'-  They fu ther  pioposed  that after five ye.i 111 the city may take  it over on  paying the  actual cost of  improvement" made.    The matter whs  discussed in all its bearings, objection  being taken as to giving the club full  power  to  make   what  impiovomcnts  they wished without   refeiencc to  the  city, and afterwards claiming  the full  cost of the same.     Jt was also pointed  nut that, in addition to  water supply,  strce'-s would   have   to lc  graded and  sidewalks  built,  thus  entailing  con-  siJeniblc expense to the city.      It was  finally left over foi   further consideration, and, in (he   meantime left  wilh  the    public    winks    committee    and  report at next meeting. <,  The clerk was instructed to find out  when the lailway commission may be  expected heie, Mr. Gallihcr, having  arranged that a meeting be held here  and at NeUon  A number of accounts were paid in  full, but Constable Shaw was paid for  half a month only, on account of being  under suspension.

What  On the Hot  Wave's Crest  By A.  9.  RICHARDSON  , 'Copyright, 1KB, by T. O. McClnre  Young Dr. James tightened up his  bolt with a scowl as he heard the ambulance gong sound. The little tents  which dotted ,the grounds of the hospital .were already filled with victims  ofthe heat. His own head,,whlrleii,  and his pulse throbbed violently, and  there were four hours of relentless  sunlight still before the scorching city.  The electric ambulance rolled lightly nnd noiselessly under the porte  cochere of the great hospital and then,  with its .citing of warning, threaded  its way between cars; trucks' and delivery wagons. , People eyed it' with  curiosity ��������� not unmixed with , awe.  There was no ' telling whose' turn  would come next.   And, unmindful of  HE    STUMBLED    BIjINDTjT    TOWABD     TUB  SIlAWALK..  their stare, Dr. James sat on one of  .       , c | the   lengthwise   seats,  with   his   feet  '..,,..     t,    '    i.    ���������      '"' ' '    'stretched   on   thel one', opposite,  t'.\Miy, I've actually as good ns asked    continued to scowl. - ,    "       '  and  you to'marry me," gasped Polly, "just  what I've always .declared I'd die rather than-do!

Dr. James jerked unr .  ,the  shade,  and  the  pitiless  sunlight  shot across the floor and rested on the'  deathlike face.

When the allotted three weeks of  grace had' expired Mr. Larkins in desperation executed his threat and received, a plump "No!" the result of  Miss Podderly's championship and a  streak of contrarinexs in the widow's  disposition.

"How many of our''expressive ^expressions', are built around some reference to water!" said a writer. "Take  a few brief examples for consideration"' If we think a scheme isn't very  strong or a statement decidedly weak?  we invariably say 'it won't hold' water.' Do we infer that more wisdom  lurks in* an individual's head than he  is ordinarily given credit for, what  do we say? 'Still waters run deep.'  When a person gets into some kind of  difficulty, we say he is in 'hot water.'  "When a proposition of any kind is  rejected, especially ."^proposal of'marriage, it is'a case of having 'cold water thrown on our hopes.' Fortune has  its 'tides,^ and blessings or riches aro  'rained' down on us. If a speaker exhausts his topic and still tries to talk,  we say that he has 'about run dry.'  "Rumors are always termed 'afloat,'  and when a business enterprise goes  down we call it 'swamped.'

Several nights  later a friend paid a visit to the first  man, and as soon as he got inside the  apartment he heard the parlor organ  on the lower floor.

She lacked faith in him, and,  like all women, she was not content  to help a fellow work his way,  but  would   be  quite   ready, to  enjoy  the  fruits of his success. ,  That was the way when a girl's father had money and the man who  loved her had few assets except a  clever, brain and a prospective career.

When the concert had lasted  half an' hour,  one of  the listeners rose, quietly helped himself  to   the   musician's   hat   and   proceeded to take up a collection.  He proved such a persistent beggar  that before long the hat sagged with,  its burden of nickels and dimes. The  player, inspired by the rattle of coin,  played with renewed vigor.  As the man with the hat approached  him, the interested passengers craned  their necks to see the' presentation���������  but there was no presentation.' Instead, the man who had passed the hat  calmly stowed the collection away in  his own trousers pocket, tossed the  empty hat to the Scandinavian and*  gravely returned to liis novel.

..LUMBKKING.
The outlook for 'the-lumber industry is ���;improving. rAn active
doiiiand has sprung up'for shingles,
and it is stated tho' demnnd"is
greater than the supply. It is con-
(i'denlly'cNpooled this activity will
extent! this fall to the lumbei industry as a whole, The harvest in
Manitoba 'and' .the Northwest
promises to be good. Many little
portable mills have been employed
to cut'the ode! bits oMiniber on the
prairie ancl it does not take long to
exhaust these, "The Lake of the
Woods ship lumber, to Manitoba
for much less than can tlierBritish
Columbia'l'umber'mcn, but' the .demand cannot be supplied from this
source alone. British. 'Columbia
must'command the' market of the
future.1 '
While the proposed>tariff asked
for by the lumbermen' is expected
to help the -industry, the "point is
overlooked.'that, one reason why
the American lumbermen can successfully .compete 'in' Canada is
tha�� the American railways carry
lumber oh much more favorable"
rates.than do Canadian railways.
Lumber is 'here carried 'by weight.
There it is carried by-the 1000 feet.
The. railway policy of .the two
countries is more than anything
eUc responsible for the handicap
which the British Columbia'lumberman has in. seeking 'a 'market in
Manitoba and the Northwest. It
is to"tho railways" rather ' than to
government policy that the lumbermen's searplilight should be turned.

We quite endorse the movement
agitated for by a 'section of the
'press that the government should
run the, express business just as it
runs the post oflice. In the mother
country rand the Australian colonies the parcel post system is a
great boon, and by the parcel
system on the government railways
cases of fruit etc. are carried at a
fraction of tlie rale? levied by the
Dominion Express Company.

Pithy- Remarks of an  Eastern
Business Man.
- The President of an   Eastern   board
of Made says :
-There   is   no   excuse   for dealing
away from home. ,  Money   should be
spent   in   the-locality in .which it is
made,   otherwise-   the    growth   and
success   of    the  district  is impaired.
The conduct of those people who   buy
on ciedit in town and outside for cash
cannot   bo   too  strongly condemned.
The merchants know what they   have
to contend    with   in   outside competition, and consequently mark  things
down   the   lowest   possible  prices, so
that   if they cannot obtain cash  or its
equivalent in value, they   sulVur   loss.
I.e loyal to your own district.     Assist
the merchants  so  fur   as lies in your
powfi*.  to   take   advantage   of  every
trade dweount hy giving him the cash
with which to do so and you will   Iind
that every effort put, forth in this way
���.'ill ledotuid to   your   own  interests.
i It is true that tho large departmental
.store;1 imay he able to   buy  cheaper in

I the ohe.ipf r rontidj and cost   of   labor

Nutriment In tlie Cookecl,\Vn.ter  >' TI.iin In the Gralnn.  ��������� The rice grains that we eat and believe are nourishing do not begin to  have the real nutriment fthat is contained in--the, water "in- which they  have been cooked.  For thousands of years" rice has been  the 'main' food of the Chinese, Japanese: and ^eveh -the Sikhs of India.  When we stop to think- that'these -warlike nations compose one-third of thej  human race and subsist largely on'rice,  -it seems probftble'-'thafthey thoroughly  understand its properties. But the'orientals hav.e found that the water that  we throw away after cooking the cereal is what.contains the.greatest life  giving properties. In-fact, they prefer  the water to the grain as a nutriment.  In cases of stomach trouble, so prev-'  nlent in the east, it is used.with great  effect and can be retained when' even  milk is'rejected. ".,'���������'  But for the Anglo-Saxon a delicious  dessert can'be made-from this same  rrice- water. After cooking the rice  drain the water and flavor with some  extract. Set on the ice to cool, and it  will form a jelly.. Heap'with whipped  cream or fruit and serve. This makes  not only a tasty , but nutritious dish  and certainly an economical one. .

Many persons who shave themselves do not understand this and wonder why they  have sore faces. They blame the bay  rum and change off to witch hazel'or  something else.
