the Chinaman on the jaw and tore

business.
The improvement; in the financial situation is slow but steady,
and by the end of the year business
promises to be lively all over America. The hard times we have had
are largely caused by niggardly
people getting their pedal extremities chilled through imagination.
Pikers and fearful individuals
block the wheels of progress nnder
any conditions.
They were all artists���the three
of them; and they were Bitting
round the studio fire late telling
stories.
"The other day," said one, "I
painted a little deal board in imitation of marble with such accuracy
that on being thrown into water,
it sank immediately to the bottom.'
"Faugh.', said Number Two.
"Yesterday I hung a thermometer
near to the easel supporting my
picture of the Polar regions, and
the mercury at once fell to twenty
degrees below zero."
"That's nothing," remarked
the third artist. "Why, fehe portrait; I finished some time ago of
that American millionaire man is
so lifelike that it has to be shaved
twice a week."
After this the three friends began to think about going to bed.
William, who was visiting his
uncle, passed one Sunday afternoon
admiring the beautiful walks and
scenic views in the neighboring
park. "Well, laddie," queried his
uncle, "what did ye Bee in the
park?" "Some of the most beautiful vistas I ever saw," replied
William- ' 'Ah, laddie," cau tioned
the old gentleman, "but ye musfcna
pluck them, its against the rules."

He had but .recently lefts school,

About half-way through the meal,
just as the son was beginning feo

"My boy." he began, "you must

Extra Municipal Wholesale Liquor Licence
NOTICE
In dull times business men make
a mistake by not advertising. They
may save 10 to 17 cents a day by
so doing, but lose dollars where
they save cents. The people on
the outside of tbe city do nofe care
to deal with dead ones, who are
too poor, niggardly, or bashful to
put their names in the local paper,
and buy their goods from live ones
in other towns or the east. It
pays to keep a bold front, even if
the sheriff is camping in your back
yard. The world hates a coward
in war, love or business.
A Chicago hotel had a night
watch man who did not take very
kindly to the system whereby he
was required to go through the hotel at certain hours and touch a
set of electric buttons, thus indicating his whereabouts at a given
time. So a pedometer was given
him which would register every
step he took.
All went well for a time. One
morning, however, fehe watchman
was missing. On search being
being made, he was found asleep
in the engine room, and the pedometer so attached to the piston-rod
of tbe engine that with every
stroke it registered a step. It had
been travelling all night and when
taken off it registered two hundred
and twelve miles.
Notice is hereby given that on the 1st
day of December next application will be
made to the Superintendent of Provincial Police for the grant of an Extra-
Municipal Wholesale Licence for the sale
of liquor in and upon the premises known
as the Greenwood Liquor Co., Greenwood,
