Greatly' to our inconvenience at the time, we put a  man to work just at the time he  was badly needed for other things;  so far nothing has been done towards movingthe other buildings,  which besides being dangerous,  keeping us from furnishing* the  repairs to our store, and a detriment to business.  Are we to look upon this as another of the -'City's" big bluffs at  driving a willing horse, for" it  seems to me tbe old old story  "'those that will-must," aud those  that wou't leave alone."'  Shall esteem it a favor if your  honourable body will kindly let us  know what action they intend taking towards having the other two  buildings removed.���������Yours truly,  Fred. B. Holmes.  .James Copland of Bridesville  was in the city this week. Ho is  one of the oldest residents of B. G,  having mined at Hill's Bar on the  Fraser river in 1858.

Efforts by those  who are on the inside of a big consolidation scheme are being made  to create slumps in mining stocks  in order to gobble it up cheap, and  subsidiary mining syndicates are  being formed. It is rumored that  all these- manoeuvres are principally the agencies of a strong Fng-  lish syndicate who are to acquire  the Northport smelter, the First  Thought mine,- and merge other  properties in the Orient camp. To  give color to this rumor word comes  from Washington, D. C, to the  effect that a company has been  formed there with a capitalization  of $10,000,000 to consolidate all  the mines in the Orient camp under one management, and to  operate its own smelters, mills,  etc.  At Rossland the Le Roi mine  has workings 1,750 feet deep.

ROBEED   WHILE   HE   SLEPT.  Armed  to the  Teeth,  He Awakens to  ���������   Find  a  Message of Thanks  From  a  Visitor, Who  Made Good His Escape  From the House.  [Copyright, IMS, by T. C. McClure.]  'HEN Mr. Bowser reached  home from the office tlie  oilier evening Mrs. Bowser  hail some news for him. On  the previous night burglars had entered im fewer- than thruo houses on their  block aiul carried off more or less  swag, and thus far the detectives had  secured no clou- to the gentry. Some  of the detectives had said that it was  nion: than likely Unit tho marauders  ���������would return to the street another  night, and householders had been notI-  lletl to bo on the watch.  "And so wo must be careful to see  that doors and windows are fast before wo go to bed tonight." added Mrs.  Bowser as they descended to the dining room.  "Wo will do no such thing," replied j  Mr. llowser.  "On the contrary, I Shall  make it easy for a burglar to effect entrance,    The situation  is  ono  that I  have hoped for for months."  "You��������� you want n burglar in tho  house!"  "I do���������three or four of them, if they  can only make it convenient:. I have  long boen disgusted wiili the a������tion of  thc courts In burglary cases. Instead  of giving each burglar caught the max-  WHEN IIEU SPINE HA.ISES ABOUT TWO FEET.  lniuni penalty of the law, not one in  twenty gets it. They are Imprisoned  for one, two or three years and come  our to try it over again. Wc* need a  heroic and radical change In this matter."  "But you are-not a ��������� juiigo-ou-.the  bench." '"  "No; I am simply a humble householder, but the radical change referred  to may have its beginning right iu this  house."  "But how do you mean?" asked the  puzzled Mrs. Bowser.  "I mean that burglars should rrot be  left to the courts, but to the coroners.  In other words, they should bo killed  on the spot. Householders should  slaughter them right and left until the  profession becomes extinct. Give them  to understand that it is sure death to  enter a house, and they may take off  their coats and go to work at honest  tabor."  "Then you ineau that you are going  to try lo kill a burglar tonight?"  "Yes, ma'aui, 1 do. For the past  throe months I have been fairly longing for the situation that has developed at last. The fellows have ho'tl  off for a Jong time, but they are here  rrow, and we shall see what wc shall  see. If auy marauder comes about  this house tonight and does not meet  with a surprise party, I shall have  nothing further to say on the subject."  Mrs. Bowser wished to be informed  of his plans, but lie held her off for  the next hour. Then dinner had been*  finished and he had gone all over thc  house Inspecting doors and windows  and nodding his head now and then in  n sagacious manner. He even ascended to tho garret and inspected the roof  and then descended to the cellar aud  opened the doors of the furnace and  peered within. Half a window pane  had been broken out of a kitchen window, and he measured the hole with  a tapcllno and spent ten minutes figuring whether a man weighing 100  pounds could enter tho house by It.  He was still prowling nroun* when  the Impatient Mrs. Bowser demanded:  Baits Trap For Marauder.  ! '.'.\Vell, what does all this mean?"  "It means that I am seeing where  host to bait the trap for a burglar," he  replied. "You can't rush this thing  llke-ibuylng a pair of sixty cent stockings marked down to Oi). 1 want to  make a sure thing of It. Thero must  he no escape for the burglar who enters this house tonight. Ills portion  must be a riddled death.'- I have decided to station myself iu tho dining  room and leave the outer door unlocked."'  "That's all nonsense. You can hire  n man to sit ou the front steps all  night."  1 "And that very man 'might he in  league with a gang. Not any hiring  lor me. I shall do my own watching  and my' own killing. I want the bur-  i'lnry profession to know that It's Mow  rer who is ufter It. You will go to bei!  nt the usual hour nnd go to sleep, an I  . sunn quietly take up my watch. I  may kill two or three burglars before  you are aroused. Iu fact, there will  not be the slightest need of your waking up. I have no weapons and am  now going to start out and borrow  some."  "But I wish you would give, it up!"  pleaded Mrs, Bowser. "I don't beliovo  there Is cue chance In a hundred that  a burglar will come, aud you know  what a poor hand you are to sit up  nnd watch. Since you began to grow,  fat the loss of sleep, breaks you all i  op." I  . .-That  was an uufortuuntc remark.  Mr. Bowser flushed up, looked hard al  her and replied:  "Woman, this is not a subject for  ridicule or prevaricatlou. I have not  gained an ounce of flesh In the last  year. Even if I had gained a ton that  would be no excuse for not protecting  my own home from tho ravages of a  gang of evil disposed men. I shall  proceed with my own plans, and I  shall not need your advice In the  least."  Willi that he walked down the hall  and clapped on his hat and walked  over to the butcher's. There he re-  Quested and secured tho loan of a  .great knife. The butcher was busy  and asked no questions. From thence  he went to the plumber's and borrowed a shotgun and buckshot cartridges, aud at tho drug store he was  handed an old baseball bat, with tho  remark:  "That's right. Bowser. If you can  kill off half a dozen of tho cats in this  neighborhood a dozen good cigars shall  bo wailing for you.

But the Indignant burglar slayer  didn't wail to hear any more. He  left and walked Into his house like a  brigand searching for a victim, and  Mrs. Bowser said to herself that ho  looked fierce enough to scare a school-  ma'am off the fence., Although it was  only 0 o'clock, he said lo her:  "I want you to go to bed at once and  turn out the light in tlie room as soon  as possible. Burglars arc no fools.  They are not going to walk into a trap  blindfolded."  "And you insist on sitting up alone?"  "I do, and I don't want you calling  down to me either. I am after big  game, and I don't want it frightened  away by any woman's nonsense."  Mrs. Bowser went upstairs and took  a seat by the window in thc darkness,  and Mr. Bowser took his arsenal down  lo the dining room and prepared for  business. lie opened tho door, took a  seat by the table and turned tho gas  down very low and began bis vigil. At  10 o'clock the street was quiet. Halt [  an hour later he caught himself nodding, and in order to keep awake he  began wondering whether he should  shoot the burglar down without an in  slant's warning or permit him to have  three or four minutes' grace to prepare liia hardened soul for the journey. By killing at once tho newspapers would praise his promptness and  dispatch; by a little .delay Ills conscience could not accuse him of hustling a human being into tho other  world. He was debating this poinl  when the light went out for him and  he slept. The gun and the knife and  tho club winked at him through the  darkness, but his eyes were closed  He might have slept an hour or a year,  so far as he could tell, when he open  ed his eyes to see Mrs. Bowser con  fronting him and to hear her words:  "Well, Mr. Bowser, don't you want  to come to bed?"  "Eh, oh? W-what you doing down  here? I. thought--! .told, you-lo slay  away." ���������  "Y'ou, you did. Where arc the gun  and other weapons?"  Mr.  Bowser  sprang up  and   looked  around him in the greatest surprise.  "And where is your watch?"  He felt for it, but it was missing.  "And tlie big solid silver pitcher that  stood on the sideboard?"  It was no longer there.  "And   this?"   said   Mrs.   Bowser  as  she held up a bit of paper on which a  message had been scrawled in pencil.  The message road:  "Many thanks, old man. Ta-ta!"  Bowser's vigil was over.  M.

Nerve force  can only be created from rich, red  blood.  Make tho blood right ancl you  cure diseases of .the nerves, such as  headache, indigestion, sleeplessness,  irritability, weakness of the bodily  organs, prostration and partial paralysis.  This is the only way actual cure  can possibly bo brought about and  because; Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Food  is a great blood builder it accomplishes wonderful results in the euro  of diseases of the nerves.  Mrs. Nooran, 10 Sullivan street,  Halifax,  N.  S., writes:���������  "My daughter was troubled last  spring and summer with tired, listless feelings. Shu seemed to have no  energy, was very pale, had no appetite, and became very nervous and  weak. We were much alarmed about  her, as nothing seemed lo do her any  good. It was not long, however, after  beginning the use of Dr. Chase's  Nurve Food until wo began to see a  marked improvement in her condition.  Her color got butter, she gained in  weight and vigor, and her whole system seemed to be built up. She is  quite well now, and we join in strongly recommending Dr. Chase's Nerve  Food."  The old saying that "an ounce of  prevention is worth a pound of cure"  is nowhere so applicable as in diseases of the nerves, and thero was  never so effective a preventive as Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food.

THE PRESIDENCY.  All In the Family.  A Defect In the Law In the Matter of  Succession.  The language of the constitution is  generally well chosen, but iu the matter of the presidential succession it is  defective. Had it said the vice presi-  deut shall succeed to the presidency  in case of a vacancy in that office this  would have included all sorts of vacancies and have left no room for  question. As it enumerates a vacancy  from one of four causes���������"the death,  resignation, inability or removal of thc  president"���������it leaves a doubt whether  a vacancy arising from another cause-  viz, the death of the president elect���������  would entitle the vice president elect  to succeed.  The death of both president aud vice  president elect would leave the succession still more doubtful. An argument can be made for a line of succession through the holdover members  of the cabinet of tho retiring president,  but it is not absolutely conclusive. It  probably would not satisfy everybody  and thereby create a disputed title. It  might even cause very serious trouble,  and congress should tako the necessary  action to make the presidential succession absolutely clear and certain in  every contingency. The late Senator  noar labored for many years to get  this matter set at rest. Senator Bacon  has taken it up afresh, admonished of  its necessity, possibly in the very wide  discussion of this question since the  election. It is a weak spot iu our governmental organization which congress  should strengthen and make secure  without further delay. ��������� Philadelphia  Press.  subjects hopelessly stricken.

Of all the  work of the coast patrol this, perhaps,  is the most exposed lo danger. Pulling  these "signboards" out of the sea or  putting them over side is like "yanking" spiles with a ton derrick on a  heaving platform.  Although passengers In the boats  that ply the waters of New York harbor, Long Island sound and other waterways along Ihe const see many  spar buoys, they give them little  thought. With the man nt the wheel  It is-different. Color, shape and size  give him volumes of Information, and  ho looks upon thc spur buoy as an Invaluable guide.  In tho government inventories they  are listed as "sticks," although they  are sometimes sixty feet long. They  are anchored in the bed of a river or  harbor channel, their "np ends" painted in-such a way as to indicate to the  observer the formation of the bottom.  On the margin of government charts  explanatory notes tell one that vessels  approaching a harbor from the sea  should leave red buoys with even  numbers on the right and black, with  odd numbers on the left side of channels. Black and white striped buoys,  the , stripes running perpendicularly,  mean an obstruction in the channel,  with room to get by on either side.  If balls or cages ornament the "up  ends" it means a turning point, the  color aud number indicating the course.  These sticks are put down with heavy  iron anchors and sometimes great  stone weights. One would suppose that  so fixed they never could get away, but^  they do, and it is a job to find them."  Ice floes break their -cables and-sometimes crush the sticks; storms pull  them loose, and ships in the fog or  darkness foul them and tear them from'  their hold on the bottom. Not infre:  queutly ships use them as moorings,  although this is forbidden.  There are instances where the anchors of a spar buoy have been secure  enough to hold against ice pressure and  in a narrow channel cause a dangerous  jam. But such cases are few, for  when this happens the weight of the  Ice usually becomes so great as to force  the buoy under, and the pack slides on.  If the ice pack gets under the buoy  so as to lift it there is only one result���������  :he parting of tho cable. Then - off  starts the spar upon a journey maybe  of thousands of miles, perhaps of only  jne or two. It may fetch up on the  r.earest shore, and it may drift to the  coast of Europe or into the southern  seas. On the Irish coast today is one  .vliich traveled there in six weeks from  New York harbor. It was presented  to the British government by the United States and now floats off the coast  .���������>n which it stopped after its long Atlantic journey.  If it is a long chase to find the stray  buoys it is even a more difficult task to  recover the anchors left behind by the  fugitive spars. Tenders that sail out  of the harbor have a derrhl: ?nd tackle  rigged in front of the pilot house, with  a donkey engine to lift and pull. The  location of every buoy is marked on  the charts to a degree, so it is not difficult to find the desired position. The  serious business is dnu-glng for the  anchor and after grappling with It t'J  hoist it aboard ship, nere the donkey  engine comes into play. Another hazard is to pull a spnr buny aboard.

The  poisonous dye in some underclothing I was  wearing got into a scratch I had sustained  and blood-poisoning set up. Inflammation  was followed by great pain and swelling, and  then ulcers broke out on my legs. For some  time I could not walk a few steps nor even  put my feet to the ground. On my left  leg below the knee I had seventeen ulcers  which caused holes, into which I could put  my thumb. On thc right leg I had fourteen  ulcers. Medical treatment failed to relieve,  homely remedies were applied in vain. Week  B followed week and I gradually got worse,  until I was worn out with pain and lack of  sleep. On the advice of a friend I obtained  some Zam-Buk and left off everything else  while I tried it. It seemed to give me almost  instant relief from the pain, and in a few days .  I noticed that it was healing some of the  ulcers. This was cheering indeed, and gladly  I persevered with the Zam-Buk treatment.  Brt by bit the poisonous matter was drawn .  _. out.

Cruel and despotic were some of the  petty, princes  who ruled the fatherland before the Napoleonic wars swept  theru away. Charles Eugene of Wurt-  ternburg,  born In  1728, died In 1703  ind during his sixty-five years of Hfo  tormented his parents, his wives and  Iris subjects.   Ills first consort, Fred-  rrlcka of Beyrouth,  was  worthy of  iilm.     When   entering   Wurttemberg  soon   after  their   marrlnge   the  girls  threw masses of flowers in front of  them.   "What do those dogs want?"  the princess asked her husband. They  were   always   quarreling   and   never  spoke to each other without snarling.  The prince was always short of money  and sold (1,000 of-his subjects to England to raise tlie wind.    He took tho  poor wretches from the fields, clapped  a uniform on them and sent them to  their destination ns If they were cattle.  Once ho called all the young men of a  certain district before him nnd made  tho following speech: "My brave boys,  do you want to go to fight In the ranks  of the English heroes against the savages of tho continent?"  No reply was  made for the moment. Then a number  of  the youths stepped  forward, nnd  ono of them said, "We do not want to  be sold like sheep." The prince promptly gave orders for two of thorn to be  seized, put against a wall nnd shot at  once.  Then while the blood was running from the mutilated bodies of the  two unfortunates the prince by divine  right said: "Hun away.  You see 1 do  not want to Impose my will on you,  I  think of your welfare like a  father  does of  his children.   You  want to  fight by thc side of tho vnlorous English."  All consented.

Deafness is the  result, and unless the inflammation  can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing  will be destroyed forever; nine cases  out of ten are caused by Catarrh,  'which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

It should interest many Canadians  to know that there has just boen published by tho Oxford University Press  a reprint of John Gait's "Annals of  the   Parish.".. Few   of   the   present  generation stop to   think   who   John  .Gait   was,   and   probably' still   fewer  have read the "Annals of the Parish."  Yet  this   same  John   Gait  was  the  founder  of the  city  of  Guelph  and  also  of   the  town   which  bears  his  name.    He  came, to   Canada  in  the  early twenties as Chief Commissioner  oi the Canada Company of whom he  called himself the "chief contriver.''  He Vi^s the founder of the family in  this ' country   that   boars   his   name.  ������ir  Thomas Gait,   one  of  the  noted  judges of this province, was a son of  his, and   Mr. Percy Gait,   the   well-  known    barrister,' of    Toronto,  is   a  grandson.    In the .Mother Land  his  early book, which was in reality the  beginning  of  what  is known  as  the  "Kailyard school" of literature, which  has  had  a modern  fruitage  in  such  works'as   Barrie's   "Aj Window   in  Thrums" and the late Ian Maclaren's  "Bonnie Briar Bush."  In this new edition of his chief important literary achievement it is  stated, with the lofty tone of a literary pundit, by the editor of the  volume that:'"The most interesting  thing about Gait is his thankless attitude towards literature. When he  was a young man he believed, like  many young men ignorant of the  world, that literature was the first  of human pursuits, and he was in  love with 'the post orbit halo that  surrounds a literary name'  The fervor of youth once past, he was  a publicist by choice, and an author  only by necessity."  It appears that Mr. Gait wrote an  autobiography which should be a  rather precious possession for students  of the early history of Ontario, and  Mr. G. S. Gordon, his editor, is inclined to think that in it he made  too little of his literary reputation.  He suspects, probably unjustly, that  Gait was ashamed of being an author  at all.   He goes on to say:  "Gait's lodgings on"Downing street,  his principle of rapid composition  and carefully maintained demeanor  of burgher-like ease, were all moves  in a game���������the game which Scott and  the whole Blackwood group of writers  played so zealously ' in Edinburgh.  They were meant to throw society oS  the scent, or to appease it by their  evident contrition."  "I shall not be justly dealt with,"  he said, "if I am considered merelv  as a literary man.* He comforted  himself.with the thought that when  his numerous books were forgotten  he would still be remembered as the'  "contriver of the Canada Company."  ancl corrupt it as 'to cause aches in  remote parts of the body ancl the  formation of unhealthy tissue everywhere. General 'bodily weakness and  loss of weight is the result. The  nerves and the brain are disturbed,  und discomforts such as dizziness, hot  flashes, sleeplessness, irritability and  despondency originate from this  jouree. Experience shows that these  troubles vanish just as soon as tho  -toinach is made strong enough to,  Jigest tlie food. In other words it  needs a tonic that will rouse it to do  the work of changing the food into  nourishment. Tho tonic ought to be  one that will agree with the most delicate stomach ,and this is exactly  what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills do.  Hero is a bit of strong proof:  Miss Lizzie Macdonald, Harbor-au-  Hpuche.  N.S.,  says:���������"Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills have done for me what no  "other medicine    did    or    apparently  could do.    For almost three years I  suffered   untold   agony  from   indigestion.   I would have the most distressing pains in the stomach after eating.  I could not sleep at night and I would  rise in the morning feeling tired and  worn out.- I lost in weight and was  almost reduced to a shadow.    I was  under doctor's treatment almost constantly but with no benefit.   One day  T read the testimonial of a lady who  had been cured of dyspepsia by Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills and decided to  try them.   The first two or three boxes  I took did not show any apparent relief ancl I began to fear the medicine  would  not help me,    but    as J had  bought a half dozen boxes I decided  that I would use  them  up anyway.  To my joy, before they were all used  I began to improve and'I got three  boxes more.   By the time I finished  these  I  was  again  in the    best   of  health   and   gained    12    pounds    in  weight. I have not since had a twinge'  of this terrible trouble, ancl am more  grateful than words can say for what  Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills  have done  for me."

Lahm, the father of Lieut.  Lahni, the champion balloonist, had  a twenty-minute sail in Wilbur  Wright's aeroplane at Le Hans last  month. In Paris afterwards he talked  of aviation.  "The sensation of flying," he said,  "is like that of sailing in a very  swift steamer, without any vibration  or rolling, over a sea perfectly,  smooth.  "I was very lucky to go up. Mr.  Wright has hundreds of applications  for flights. He has to refuse 99 in  100. But his refusals are put delicately. They are' as delicate as the  young husband's dismissal of his  wife's mother-  "This lady had been visiting at the  man's house steadily for seven  months. On toward Christmas time  she said to him:  " 'John,- I am going to have my  photograph taken as a Christmas gift  for you and Minnie. What'dress do  you prefer me in?'  " 'Your traveling gown, dear mother,' the son-in-law    replied  for an heiress' and what came ,of ,it,  was told'in'the'Dublin "court's reefing  ly during1 an'action brought'by Patrick Cloriry.'an -Erihiskillen riian,' for  $2,000, against a Mrs. Sibley. ; The  woman was an heiress, and had been  found by strange good,fortune among  London's   millions.        , "    ',.,  Mr. Cleary, who had engineered the  hunt, now cluimed to bo reimbursed  for the cost of findrng her, and for  the keep ,of her uncle, the man who  left the fortune, which totaled sorno;  thousand:*-of pounds.   '  Counsel, in relating the circurn  stances, said the man with tho inon^y  was Mr. Poison, an Enniskillen  newspaper proprietor. He was an old  man of 85, and a bachelor. He lived  alone, ancl \vn<r looked after by Mr.  and Mrs, CIcary, who never roceivo.-!  any money from him for their services, but relied oh a promise he made  to leave them something on his death,  But he died  intestate.  After his death, the Clearys turned  thc place upside down, looking for  .some paper that would lead to the  discovery of a relative to inherit his  fortune, for no one related to hirri  had been scon or heard of by them.  Tt might seem like a romance, counsel  added, but they turned over ab-uil  three tons of papers and other rubbish in their search.  Eventually they came across a letter Jated 18-19, written to Mr'. Poison,  when ho was a young man, by his  father. In that loiter the father  mentioned another sori, named  George, who. he said, had cone to sea.  On the strength of his fifty-year-old  clue Cleary .sent off his two young  sons to hunt for George, who must  be an old man, if alive, at this time.  The young Clearys went to Bristol  and stayed there looking for some  trace of the old' sailor or his descendants, Mr. Cleary paying their  exoenses.  The boys ransacked the records in  Bristol Town Hall and the churches,  and 'at last discovered that old Mr.  Poison's father had" been a beadle in  one of the,churches of the city, and  that the brother George, mentioned  in the ageworn letter, had left a  daughter, who would, of course, be  a niece of the dead man and tho  heiress to his  money  But the daughter was not in Bristol. They v.ere told she might bo  found in London, so from Bristol to  London they went, as if they expected to find one woman among the  great city's millions.  But they had the good luck to direct their steps to the shipping office  of a firm named Lidgate, who turned  otrt to be the owners of the very vessel in which old Poison's sailor brother George had sailed in 1849.  There was a clue! A clue more  than'fifty years old, but a clue! From  it they actually managed to hunt up  George's daughter, who had become  Mrs. Sibley.  The   solicitor   for   the   defense   admitted   that   the   discovery   of   Mrs.  Sibley was   due   to   the  industry of  Cleary and  his  sons.  The jury awarded Mr. Cleary ?865.  ,(.

His idea is  that this remedy can be supplied directly to the people, and no more be charged  for it than is necessary for the  handling of it.

English Names Have Old.Associations  Connected With Them.  Among the old things that,have died  out are the local nicknames given to  inhabitants of various cities or counties. There is a well-known Lancashire saying connected with a stagecoach driver, which is remarkable for  its nice grades of distinction between  four passengers. The old driver was  asked: "Who has ta gotten i' th'  coach, Jem?" And Jem replied:  "Wha, there's a gentleman fro* Liverpool, and a mon fro' Manchester, ancl  a chap fro* Oldham, and a felly fro'  Wigan."  "Yorkshirc," again, is a term used  for cunning or shrewdness. "He's a  deep 'un." says someone in one of  Charles ReadoV novels, "but we are  Yorkshire, too." A lying old proverb  says: "Shake a-bridle over a York-  shireman's grave, and he will arise  and steal a horse."  A jocular nickname for men of Norfolk is "Norfolk Dumplings," p2rhnp<-  because these East-country folk still  maintain the custom of serving  "dumplings" or pudding before meat,  which in old days was a general custom, especially in economical households, for the pudding took the edge  off the sharp appetite.  The T.inf>olnshirG nicknfimf. is tho  uncomplimentary one of "Yellow Bellies," in allusion to the frogs and eels  which abound in the fen country.

The publisher of the best Farmer's  paper in the Maritime Provinces in  writing to us states:  "I would say that I do not know of  a medicine that has stood the test of  time like MINARD'S LINIMENT.

The new tower of the Birmingham  University is to be fitted with one of  the largest clocks in this country.   It  will have four diab, each 17-1-2 feet  in  diameter,   mr.de   of   cast  skeleton  iron filled in with white pot opal for  illumination at night.   The hands are  made of strong rolled  sheet  copper,  and each pair weigh about 150 pounds.  The  extreme  length   of  the  minute-  hand   is   10 /feet   4   inches,   and   the  hour-hand at the widest part is 2 feet.  The clock  itself is over 9 feet long,  the' frame   being" one   solid   casting,  weighing e.lono about half a ton.    It  will strike the hours and Westminster  chime quarters on five bells,  weighing  about   ten   tons,   the   largest,   or  hour-bell,   weighing   five   tons.     The  clock will only require winding once  a  week,   the   total   weight   when   installed,   including   the   dials,   bells,  weights, etc., being quite twenty tons.  The   makers,   Messrs.   Joyce   &   Co.,  Whitchurch,     Shropshire,     England,  have erected  hundreds  of  important  clocks in all parts of the world.  Minard's  Liniment Cures  Diphtheria.

In forty years importations have increased   by  no less-an  amount  than  $300,000,000; dutiable   goods increased  from   $45,250,305   to  $230,917,914,   and  free goods  from  $23,314,102 to $133,-  319,950.   Once  more  the  increase   is  most gratifying,  as  in  two years  it  has been $54,000,000 in dutiable goods  and  $23,000,000 irr  free goods.    Even  when we come to show exports fronr  Montreal  alone   we  find   an   increase  last year compared with the year 1907.  Not very much,  it is true,  but still  large enough  to  be  noticeable.   The  record to March 31, 1903, was the second largest for the year in 22 years.  Turning to manufactures, although  the precise figures are noj just now  available,   it   is   agreeable   to   know  froir reliable sources that the increase  during the.past year.'rcvjst have been  consiaerable. ��������� '������������������ <        .
