What is the matter with the 'Hevel-

suinmer this club was oigamzed with
a nn nibership of seventy or moie, and
,now though tliere is a greater- number
of bicyclists in tnwn.th.-iu llien it is al-'
lowed lo drop out of existence through
laclc of interest. Why not hold, a

Tun city council has at last decided
on putting "in. fiie alarms, the fire,
water and light committee recommending f.vo -i'2o pound bells with strikers
at the last council meeting. ' This mat
tej; has been under consideration for a
long lime and the fire of last week
must have stirred the city fathers up
and impressed them with the necessity,
of some   such   alarm,   as    that  night

Satisfactory Reports from the Various
ted trie report of the Home Mission
Committee. Jt was refreshing and encouraging to listen to a report such as
this was. This is the report more
than any other that indicates the
pulse and temperature of the Chinch,
aud its reading was, abounding vitality. In the commercial and iudusliiai
life of the province,-in some districts
at > least, we are healing of "hard
times" and ������dullness," but certainly
from the report on ' Home , Missions we could not determine
very well where these were, for- there
was 'pi ogi-i"*s and inrre.i-e,, financial
n id n u iici-ic-d, every iv here. Daring
thi'Vi'.ir i'.'-w Held,". ha\ e j,|.-!-r;iii.r into
exiMeuce and many Held"- I hat were
receiving ^uppoit from ,, the Hemic
Mission fund of the church are now
s-'lf-su-taining. Twenty , th<>ii-*and
dollars, in round numbers, were expended on the wot k of opening new
fields and 'assisting weak and needy
congregations, during the year vlS0!}-
IflOO. This does not take'inlo account
the vast- sum .-.pent by the Church in
the Yukon. This year it is expected
'that tlie expenditure for this purpose
will be between $2S,OU0 and $3U,(M),
including tbe Yukon.
��� If our missionaries wentout, on .strike
for $3.50 a daj', the work of the Church
would be effecuially tied up. Jt was
recognised by all that our missionaries
in many parts of the Synod are inadequately paid and it was unanimously
resolved to overture ..the General
Assembly to give the Synod's committee''on Home Missions discretionary
power to increase the minimum salary
of ordained missionaries to the extent,
of two dollars a week.
Dr. Campbell, of Victoria,'pi esented j
the'report on Foreign Missions within
/the Synod, which included the work
done among the Indians on the west
coast and the work among the Chinese
throughout tbe Province. The Indian
work showed many encouraging features, aifd tbe 'work among the Chinese
is progressing favorably. ' '  ���---
Rev. A. J3., Winchester is superintendent of Chinese missions within the
Synod, and is airly supported by Mr.
Coleman and by a number of intelli-
Q*ent,'and faithful Chinese workers. .It
was decided to recommend the appoint-
uient.of a (JhyiC&e missionary to carry
on work in the Presbytery of Koot-
enav. ' ���'     '
The report on Church Life and Work
iidicated thai the stale of religion
within the Synod was improving. The
condition of affair's',in our land i-vbad
enough, but it is manifest lhat the
promise, of our Mastei is being fulfilled
and tne, leaven is doing its work.
There are not lacking those 'who
assume a superior' attitude and loftily
ii.sk "What is the Church doing?"

The Wrcclc of the Mary C.
From   its ^ four
beads in tlio Boston
mountains lo Uatosville, vrlrerc it leaves
the Ozarks and enters tho Arkansas low-
'' lands, White river is a succession of astonishing curves. No other liver on the
continent so nearly and so frequently
doubles r.pon itself. From -the source
'to tho flat country is a distance on a
straight line of perii'aps 150 miles. Yj'hitc
river'betwoen those points has a course
of over COO miles; some estimates make
it 1,000 miles.     ,
Tiie beginning is near the Indian Territory  border in  the  nvesLorn   part, of Arkansas. The water run--,toward'all points*
of the compass'rn rjidek succession m.-iny
limes   before ,it  adonis  a   comparalively
direct  couiru ,llo  tho   Mississippi.    Fiom
the Boston mountains the general course.
'    villi  many a bend  find  curve,'is nerlh-
ivard  and   northeastward  into  Missouri.
1'robably the highest point in this direction i" Forsyth, near the center "�� Taney
county.    From this place the While wrig-
'   /ile.-s it.s v.-ii.v back iuio Arkansas and down
ihrough'  Million   county,   to   whore   the
., ,l>ufl'a!o join-- it.    ]!::t not until (lie Missouri-Arkansas border Jias  been   crossed
seven   times'docs  the   uncertain   stream
bear away to ihi\,southc:istw:*rd to stay.
��� 'Adding id the marvel of White 'river's
*    eccentric  meandering;*  are  tho  walls of
' rock -which tower from i!00 to 500 feet'
often from the water's eclsre.    A bircl.-.'.'ye
.view from above would show, the'river
- deep set in a canyon of conlinuouf, and
often sharp curvatures.    A mile ot river
in a straight lino is unusual.    The'crm-
yonlikc valley of the  While  narrows  in
places   almost   to 'the   channel's   width.
Over most of tho course it is wide cnougli
for a strip-of fertile bottom  land 'along
the.river.   The water wanders from one
. side of the valley to the other.   Ir washes
tbe base of the powering palisades lirst
on   the  right and  then  on  tho  left.    It
-maintains close relationship with a olif'r
for half a dozen.miles. ( Then it uudden-
' Jy crosses through 1ho bottom lands and
Lugs the opposite frowning mass.
' p.On a bright cla.v a stretch of the winding river seen' from the summit' of the
palisades shimmers like well polished, silver. "White" aptly ' clescrjla-s the'appearance.' A nearby view from tho banks
reveals a degree of purity which is rrot
equaled by any other western river. The
contrast of comparison with ihe<streams
which How through alluvial country is
striking. * White river has its origin ��iu
mountain springs.. Numberless , under;
ground.'channels, in tire limestone strata1
, help to swell the volume. Tributaries
vary from tiny rivulets starting high up.
on tbe benches of tho mountains to powerful, streams which gush t'orlfi' with a
roar from beneath shelves oC overhanging rock. Twenty' miles below Forsyth,
,boside the White, is McCJill spring, which
pours out from the .face of the cliff a
���'body of water strong enough ,to run a
large,mill. It i.s a typo of hundreds, while
the smaller and unnamed springs can
, only, bo enumerated by tens of thousands. '
The Bulla lo. the Clocked and the North
Fork in like m'ainic'r grow ^i'rom' the
springs along their courses and add to
'the White their contributioiw' oC (he
same clear, sparkling water.
Only when' heavy rainfall occurs in the
watershed of the White does tlie water
lose its distinctive character. J'^vcii then,'
while the rocky surface .convoys to
the' river a considerable portion of the
rainfall stained by the vegetation .and
the soil, the greater 'part sinks into underground reservoirs and courses and.
slowly filtering and settling, reaches the
river through the springs, which defy the-
longest drought periods. While river
Looms for a few days with a mighty How
ai'ier protected rains. A 40 foot rise is
not extraordinary in the contracted'parts,
of the valley. The water assumes a dirty
whitish, look. But tho Hood subsides
quickly, the current clarities even more
rapidly, and the river runs steadily during the dry season. It is not want of
water which 'causes the ' unnavigable
���stage. It is the character of the channel
���a series of long levels and of short rapids. If the current was e\enly dh-tribut-
i'd. there would he depth enough for the
light draft stern wheelers all the year.
Many years ago Forsyth v,a:, reached
by steamboats on White river. Tho bold
navigators pushed their slei n wheelers to
the foot of the rapids. Then they sent
the roustahoiils clambering over rocks
nnd through the trees, (hugging the tow-
line its full length. The upper end was
strongly fa-Heiied m Mam! ill" hi rain.
The boat end of the ha v.-or was wound
around the onpstan. With Lhe paddle
wheels driven by cvir:y poiind of pre:-sure
avaii.ible and with ihe donkey engine
winding in the towliiio, lhe bo.it dragged
nnd pushed itself up foot by foot through
the foaming rapids. After lhe pin-sage
was made a long r.-ach of .viu'iotli, deep
water made easy pnmross for peihaps '.'.',),
perhaps ."0. miles. In'this rvay Forsyth
was reached. And when tiie boat, "loaded to the guards" with lead and cotton
and bogs and the various products of the,
White river country, iuni"d prow down
stream (here was little to do but to
trust lo Providence and the nerve of the
man behind the pilot wheel. The current
did tbo rest.
