As  only  the man who hypnotises can bring the t  subject to again, if anything should hap-1  pen to the hypnotist in the interval, by j  which he lost his life, his victim too was  also doomed.   Pranks in audiences may  be tolerated, but long term hypnotism  should be stopped by law.  Some parties who were desirous  of  subscribing to the fund to send delegates  to Ottawa in the interest of a refinery,  had several  conditions   they desired to  have embodied in the operation  of the  refinery, that in   themselves  were veiy  desirable.   It is felt, however, that as  there may be great difficulty in getting  even one company to put up their capital for the completion of the works, conditions in operation might be a means  of. knocking   the scheme  on  the head  altogether.   The   province   in  which it  may be located and other circumstances  must govern the scale of wages, &c. The  government should have the control of  refinery charges, but other restrictions  at the present should not be insisted on.  The ore shipments from Whitewater  for last two weeks were Sunset 00 tons.  ��������� The value of the American Boy ship-  mets for February amounted to $10,000,  and the returns from 70 tona brought in  $5,640.  The   value  of  the  lead produced in  nt is placed      jv^lu production  was over $2,000,000.  It is reported that a rich strike has  been made on the Rambler-Cariboo.  Two carloads of ore are reported to have  netted the company $7,500.  Thirty men are employed on the Hart-  ney and six on the California. Both  properties have made good showings  lately and are' shipping ore.  Win. Lettenck has a contract of sinking a drift of 26 feet in the Ruby at New  Denyer. The ore taken out last year  was found to contain gold and silver.  Mr. Hughes went up to the Sunset,  near Whitewater, on Saturday, and  found everything very promising on that  property. There are large bodies of high  grade ore in all the stopes, and the mine  is shipping regularly.  The strike recently made in the Noble  Five is simply a continuance of one of  the leads of the Last Chance across that  property. It is a very large seam of  high grade ore, and when being stoped  will put the Noble Five in its old time  activity again. , ...  The Star will increase it force to about  110 early next month. This will be as  large a force as the property ever employed. Ore of a high grade is showing  up well in a-H the stopes. In some of  them the quality is the best ever found  on the property.  The present capacity aud estimated  increase for the smelters of Kootenay  and Yale are as follows: Trail, from  800 to 1.500: Grand Forks, 600 to 1,200;  Nelson 300 to 400; Greenwood, 200 to ,  1,000, and Boundary Falls from 250 to  500 tons.  The  Star  is   making every arrangements for an extensive business as soon  there  is  sufficient   water  for the mill.  They have the disposal of their output  provided for with  the Everett smelter.  As a lot of development work has  been  j done, there will be nothing to do when  the mill starts but mine and ship.  '    The Reco and the   Goodenough   have  been working about 15   hands each  for  the  past three   months  mining.   The   ���������  shipments during that time have been  reported   already.   As   rawhiding .and  shipping are now over, the forces are reduced to eight men   each, who will   do  development work until the  summer's  bii8inessopens.   The mines are separate  and   distinct, though   some of the tunnels of each find an outlet through the  sanie crosscut.

This  coariction  is  based  ���������upon throe considerations; First, the  very evident fact  that an  inordin;i.tc  proportion arc  fitted  for  no  special  market class, indicating  that a large  numb.-!- of farmers are not acquainted with the market classes that have  been, established  by   tlic  trade.    Sec-  erne, the glaring defects that are passed  unnoticed by  the owners.   Tilii.rd,  the fact   t'hat  the average  horseman  is  vastly better acquainted with  the  blemishes of horses than lie is with  the proper    type   and, characteristics  t'hat  go   with  the different use3  to  which the horse is put.     These'three  reasons are sufficient to account for  the production of a mass of inferior  animals which, do not meet the eye of  the critic  until  they are offered for  sale.  Dealers by long experience and  constant observation have learned to  a nicety all the requirements of . a  horse, and in their minds clearcut  ideas exist as! to what he should or  should not be. If these ideas' could  be clearly established in the minds.' of  the raisers of horses, as ��������� they are in  those of the dealers, we Should have  fewer scalawags produced to be held  up at the markets and ultimately sold  for a price- that barely covers the  price of growing. For.one thing there  is too much mixing of blood in this  country. It is hot at all an uncommon thing to detect in the same horse  traces of three or four breeds representing as many distinct classes of  horses.  The   expense of growing a    horse  that nobody wants docs not greatly  differ from that of producing one that  fills the real need, and fills it s'o wel  that   tho prospective  buyer  is ready  j to p.ty good money for it.    The difference is not so mucih in the added expense fori tihe sire as' it is in the minds  of the men who do the breeding.   Ate  with cattle, on-  with any other farm  stock, if the breeder has ia advance  a clear-cut idea of what he proposes  to secure, and uses''good judgment in  the selection! of his sire, in nine cases  out of  ten he will succeed. If,  however,    he    undertakes  to produce as  highly organized an  animal as    the  horse without definite plans in mind,  in nine cases out of ten, ho will fail.  a nerrouis. system by contagion. They  gather this contagion at a very early  aige, reflecting surrounding conditions  most      faithfully.     Terrorizing;    the  child  does wo g-ood; it  has  in  some  oases brought on. idiocy.

Children  are very different in nature and continue so till the end of life and what  is) the very best mode of procedure in  one, case is'very undesirable in another.

Take a crop of clover which weighs a  ton; if the whole of this is plowed under it will return to the soil the phosphates and potash extracted, amounting    to    42 pounds of potash and 12 j  pounds  phosphoric acid,  in addition,  suppliest about 50 pounds] of nitrogen  which was not in the soil before the  clover crop was  grown.      To supply  this amount of nitrogen by means of  farmyard manure it would be necessary   to   spread   from   five to s&ven  largo loads according to the composition  of  the    manure.

While undergoing an operation the surgeon's knife  slipped, an artery was severed, andi before the surgeon knew the result of  hia error, the patient was in a dying  condition.  Every surgical operation is attended  with great risk to life as! well as being  & severe strain on the nervous system  and an expensive method of treatment. Doctors formerly recommended an! operation as the only cure  for piles, but that day is past, since Dr.  Chase's Ointment has proven its absolute control over every form of itching,  bleeding and  protruding piles.  Physicians who are considerate of  the well-being of their patients do not  hesitate to recommend Dr. Chase's  Ointment, and only those having a  mania for operations claim that cruel  method as the proper treatment.

At this very severe  crisis I purchased a box of Dr. .Chase's  Ointment, but had little or no faith in  it, as I had tried various remedies  before and to no purpose  "Now imagine how great and joyous  was my surprise to find that just the  one box: cured  me so that the lumps  disappeared  and  also     the    externa)  swelling-.   I feel like a different man  to-day, and have not the least doubt  that Dr. Chase's Ointment saved me  from  a very dangerous    and painful  operation and many years of suffering.  It is with  the greatest pleasure and  with a thankful heirt that I give this  ' testimonial, knowing that Dr. Chase's  Ointment has dme  so much for me.  You j re at perfect liberty to use this  testimonial as you    see fit  for  the  benefit of others similarly afflicted."

St. Thomas, March 4, (Special).���Mr.
L. Dake, of the' Dake House, in this
city, is a proud man for he has at
last forever disposed of a foe, which
has given him a great deal of pain
and annoyance daring the last five
ox six years. That foe was Kidney
Trouble and Lame Back. Dodd's Kidney Pills drove it out, never, to return, and how Mr. Dake is" happy.
This is what he says: ���  ���
"I have been troubled with my Kidneys and pains in my back far over
five years. Nothing I could get
helped me in the, least. Finally, I was
told by a friend who had tried them,
that Dodd's Kidney Pills would cure
me, and I decided to try. They relieved me from the first and eventually cured me completely. They are
a wonderful  medicine."
There are many people in St.
Thomas and vicinity who have very
kind things to say of Dodd's Kidney
Pills. The local druggists report a
very large "sale, and this is not to
be wondered at, as many very remarkable cures are reported in the
ci/ty and  county.

illustrative adjective, such as a "durn-

a "grasping" rogue,; the addition of
the descriptive word shows that you
have lost your temper,- and you are

CANADIAN    WOMEN'S   LOYAL ADDRESS TO QUEEN ALEXANDRA.
The opportunities given for signing
this address, to Her Majesty, expressing  the  loyalty  and  appreciation    of
the women    of   Canada, have    been
largely  taken advantage  of in numerous  places  throughout  the Dominion.   As there must, however, be women here and there who (have not yet
learnt .  that     they     are     all     asked       to      join      in        this      movement,   it    is    now    announced   that
there will still be time for those who
have not had a chance of signing the
signature sheets to Bend in an application to have their names added to
the roll.   The usual signature, without prefix or address, sent in an en-
*"' velope with an authorisation to have
it copied in  fac-simile, and enclosing
not less than a two cent stamp to cover expenses, will be in-time if received by the Secretary, at  the Central
Office of the National Council of Women  of  Canada,  71  Brunswick  Ave.,
Toronto, up to the 21st of March. After that date, the Address, which is
being artistically and beautifully illuminated will be bound in a large volume,   tevgether    with     the  signature
sheets,   in   a manner   worthy  of   the
women  who  are    so  enthusiastically
throwing themselves into this scheme.

THE NEW SCHOOL BILL.  If the School Bill   before   the  House  becomes law in its present form, it will  work a great   hardship   on   places  like  Sandon���������it will, in short, force them to  dispense with one teacher, which should  not be the object of a well regulated  government.   The most of people will  agree   with   the   principle   of   making  school boards responsible, and placing a  portion of school liabilities in the hands  of the people, as it will 'make them take  a greater interest in school matters generally, which is badly needed in this  province.   The portion of taxation that  may fall on the people   for   the   maintenance of good schools should however,  be made proportionate.  In places like Sandon, where the population is ever varying as mining matters   fluctuate,   the hardships   will   be  numerous and severe.  We have at times  a school population of over 75, too many,  of course, for one teacher, and in three  months that population may fall to40,or  even less as at present.   As the new law  provide for $20 per capita of regular attendance, based on that of the previous  month   or    quarter,   our    government  allowance   will    be   so   uncertain   and  irregular, that no Board of Trustees can  properly regulate a school under it, as  they will never know how much or how  little    to    ask   from   the   council,   to  make up the balance of school expenses.  The proposed law provides that at the  first of the year, and only once in each  year, the trustees are to make an  estimate of what they will require from the  council for that year, over and above the  government appropriation, and ask the  council to  tax for it.   As the school is  running now it takes about $1,800 a year  for maintenance for all purposes, and we  get it all from the government.   Under  the new lnw���������at our present attendance  we will  get  less   than $800, so that we  would   have to   tax   for    $1,000,  or  if  we  dispensed with   one   teacher, for at  least $350.   If again good times set in  before the year  is  out, we might have  a school attendance of over G0,sand would  necessarily   have  to    secure    another  teacher.     With  such    attendance   we  would get $400   more   from  the government, not  enough   to  pay the. second  teacher, and the trustees would have no  power to ask the council to make a second levy.   Anyone can see from this the  situation must prove a most perplexing  one.   If  the  per  capita allowance was  paid by the government on the basis of  our largest attendance during the year,  the Board could always keep the second  teacher,  and   readily   provide  for tho  expenditure.  One good feature of the proposed law  is the compulsory clause, forcing all  children of school age to attend under  penalties, twelve months in the year.  Parents will see from this the mure  regularly they send their children to  school the lighter, will be their taxes.  We trust modifications will yet be  made in the Bill to make it better suited  to the requirements of the country.  ���������CONSUMPTION  begins and leaves off in thousands of people, who never suspect it. It isn't much more  than a pimple���������indeed it is a  a pimple���������lung pimple.  Health, all round it, stops  it���������just as a skin pimple gets  stopped.  How to get that health all  round it: take Scott's emulsion  of cod-liver oil and be careful  We'll send you a little to try if you like.

We   used   to  think that with  the head of water the system had and- a  fire company with good appliances, the  city was fairly safe in case of a fire; but  our experience taught the contrary.   No  doubt   the narrow streets   and the uncovered flume at   the rear of the main  tier of buildings were responsible for the  calamity   to   which we  refer.   Things,  however,   are  difl'erent  now.   With  a  good supply as   is   available, our  wide  streets, and efficient fire company, there  is an excellent chance to save the place  in case another fire should break out,  which, of course, is bound to be the case  sooner or later.   We think too that with  a good water supply always at command,  there would be a fair  chance to  secure  reasonable insurance at rates the public  could afford to pay.   This   is  another  matter of the   gravest  moment to  the  business community.  No doubt the finances of the place are  in bad shape, not because of mismanagement of the council as .some allege; but  because of the exceptional demands on  the treasury for many new supplies necessitated  by  the   fire, and   the Iohs of  overdue taxes through  the destruction  in the fire of the city records.   All combined makes the trouble nearly equivalent to meeting two years' liabilities out  of one  year's   revenue.   However,   we  hope the financial feature of the matter  ca*n be   bridged  in  some.way, and that  we will have a supply  of water   henceforth.  Light is also required. From the  peculiar lay of the city, lights are badly  needed every night, with accidents that  may cost the place some money and  liable to occur at any time, but of course  doubly so.in the absence of a reasonable  supply of street lights, We would like  to see the whole matter fully canvassed  from every point of view, to ascertain if  means cannot be devised to provide a  reasonalbe light supply as well as ample  water protection.

The Silvertonian decries the idea of an  export duty on ore, advocated in  some  quarters, and the Trade Eudget of Vancouver, jumps on to it with both feet for  its opinions, giving the' export duty on  logs as a defence for its contentions.   It  is surprising howlamentably blind even  some journalists are   in   their comparisons.   At the time.the export duty was  put or* logs by the Federal Government,  it was to prevent our lumber woods from  being depleted by American lumbermen,  so anxious were they to get our timber,  in the face of the fact we had  plenty of  lumber industries at home to meet local  demand.   If the Trade Budget man can  show we have ample smelting and refining facilities at home to handle  all our  pre, ample markets to consume the product when refined, and that the American   smelter  men   are   breaking   their  necks in a race to get our ore, iis coin-  pal ison will be applicable, but not otherwise.   Everyone knows, however, it is  because our production of ore is in excess   of  home  demand, and   that   the  American smelters refuse to take   it  off  our hands at remunerative prices that  the trouble has  arisen���������circumstances  the exact reverse of those that surround  the lumber problem of the eastern provinces, in whose interest the export duty  was   passed.   An   export  duty   on ore  would only add   the   more  embargo in  the way of export, and it is export the  country is clamoring for until we have  suitable facilities for handling at home  at proper prices, and a satisfactory market abroad for the excess of production.  The Trade Budget must try and bark up  another tree, as the Silvertonian is right  in its conclusions.  M. L. GRIMMETT, .IX. B.  Barrister, Solicitor,  Notary  Public, Etc.

In strolling over the  hills at Slocan  Junction, Mr. McManus  and others came across a wide   ]pdge of  iron, from which   they shipped   several  tons to the Nelson smelter.

WILLIAMS', PINK iPILLS.  Mr. William Gray, of(Newmarltct, Tells  How He Became Hale and Hearty at  the Advanced Age of Seventy, After  Having Suffered 'Great Torture from  Sciatlcaand Rheumatism.  From the Express, Newmarket, Ont.  Mr. William Gray, who is well and  favorably known in the town of Newmarket and vicinity, is rejoicing over  his release from .the paina of sciatica,  and  rheumatism through    the use of  .   Dr. Williams'.. Pink Pills.   A reporter  of  the Express called  upon  him  for  the purpose of  obtaining particulars  of the cure .when Mr. Gray gave   the  following    story    for    publication:���������  " About two and a half years ago I  was seized with a very severe attack  ���������of rheumatism,   The pain was simply  torturing.   At times the trouble was  seated in my knees, then in my hips.  For nearly  a year  I suffered   along,  working as best I   could, in the hope  of  being able   to  overcome  the     disease.   During the day    the   pain  was  > Jess severe, but at night it was just  ae bad as ever.   To increase my  torture I caught a cold   which resulted  in an attack of sciatica in my right  leg.   If I walked  a   short  distance  I  would be seized by sharp pains in the  hip and in  time I became a used up  ,   man.; my appetite  failed  me,  and   I  ���������could not rest at night on account of  the pain.   I tried one medicine after  another  without  avail.   I  also   consulted doctors with" no better result.  I was beginning to think that I was  doomed to suffer the rest of my life  when one day a friend strongly   advised me to  try Dr. Williams'   Pink  Pills.   I took his advice and procured  a supply of the pills and began taking     them   according    to directions.  Before the third box was finished   I  noted, a change  for the better, so I  continued, the use of the pills till   I  had taken ten or twelve boxes when  iny trouble had entirely disappeared.  To-day I am free from pain and feel  that life is worth living, even at the  ripo old age  of seventy.   I .can now  do a day's  work with many men who  are twenty years younger than I.   I  thank    God for my   restoration    to  health  through    the    agency of    Dr.  Williams'    Pink    Pills, and   I   trust j  other similar sufferers will give them  a trial, for knowing what these pills  have done    for me   I   am sure that  they cannot fail being as beneficial to  ������ others similarly afflicted.  , If tha blood is pure and wholesome  disease cannot exist.     The reason Dr.  Williams'   Pink Pills cure  go    many  forms of disease is> that they act directly upon the blood and nerves, thus  reaching' the    root    of   the    trouble.  Other    medicines act . only    on    the  symptoms of the trouble, and that is  the reason)   the   trouble   always   returns when you cease these medicines.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills   make   permanent    cures    in   kidney    troubles,  rheumatism, erysipelas,   anaemia and  kindred diseases.   ; But    be sure you  the    genuine    whioh    bear    the   full  name Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for.

Tho Uocr������ MaUn a Very Vigorous Attack  on the ICrltiKli, Km Were Kenton Off  l������y the Itcf'ciiilcrK _ i;iii]<-<I tiiiinnnl-  llou In I Ik: Town.  Jame3 Carey, of Norwich, proprietor; of the Dorphim Baths, may J>e described as tlhc champion life-saver in  tlhe old cathedral city, for he has (just  been presented by the mayor with  tlho Royal Humane Society's vellum  certificate for saving a boy from  drowning in July last, this being the  twenty-fiftli rescue he  has  achieved.  The London Standard correspondent  at Pretoria sends the following spirited account of the defence of Kaalfontein by a detachment of the Cheshire Regiment on January 12;    The  attack on Kaalfontein  was most determined.      It - is rumored that  the  Boers    had buried some ammunition  there, and meant to get it.     Only on  some    such  hypothesis���������the      station  having no    strategic    value���������can one  understand   General   Bever's waiting  about there for six or seven hours; at  the risk .of  being rounded  up.      tAt  any rate he did so, and his lieutenant  was  given    two  12-pouuders���������one   of  them a captured British gun���������and a  Maxim    to    supplement the rifle at-;  tack.      The captain in charge of the  Station  had been   taken ill  the  previous day, and the defence was left in  the    hands    of Lieutenant   Williams  Freeman of    the    2nd Cheshire Regiment,; who,  with ninety mounted- infantry of his oiwn and twenty-five details  from various  other   battalions',  got  bis chance that day.  ��������� ''A SOLDIERLY FORCE.  There  is nothing   like mounted  infantry    work  to  bring out  soldierly  qualities and, resource, and the young  commandant of    Kaalfontein made a  splendid defence.      The enemy's gun*  opened fire a little before seven a.m.v  and as the Boers came up from Zuur-  fontein, they extended and proceeded  to envelop the station from east, north  and. south.     The station trenches! are  magnificently      constructed,       being  deep    and    carefully loopholed      and'  command    the nearly level veldt all  round the post.      The men were directed to lie low, to fire steadily, and  to waste no ammunition.     On the ap.  ���������pcarahce of .the enemy, as every man  of the hundred and fifteen was needed for  the   trenches, the  horses! and  mules    were  hurried    into a cutting  that ran parallel with and alongside  the    line.      An    empty   goods    traixj  reached, the station from Pretoria jus* j  as the Boers appeared, and a lady passenger  on    board,   wit/h  the  station-  master's wife and children, were placed in a bomb-proof    shelter,   already  prepared without the lines. All was in  readiness  fox. a desperate  defence by  the time the Boers were within range,  THE GUNS OPEN  FIRE.  Their  guns  opened    at about  3.OC0  yards, about seven. a.m.      They fired  fast  and furiously,  and as! tho riflemen opened out  to envelop the post*  their Maxim rattled almost incessantly.      The absence of effective covea  was in    favor of   the   garrison, and  doubtless had everything to do  with  the reluctance of the Boers  to come  to  close    quarters    with  the British  soldiers.     For the most part in front  they kept a good thousand yards off,  but on the north and south they took  advantage of the dip of the line and a  mealie   field    to   press closer on the  flanks.  When Lieut. Williams Freeman saw  that the attack was developing in  great force, he detailed Parks one of  the Cheshire Mounted Infantry, to  get out his horse and ride through  to Olifantsfontein to wire for reinforcements. Parks had to run the  gauntlet. He could not leave the station without being observed, and in  a moment a number of Boers were  thundering after him and firing as  they tried to cut him off. But Parks  rode    hard  and   well, and  got clear  away to Olifantsfontein, where the  wire- soon let Lord Kitchener know  what' was going on.  DETERMINED ATTACK.  The attack was in the meantime being pressed with great determination,' to. the incessant rifle fire wast  added the shriek of the shells! as they Dividend declared,  tore through the... station - .'or hurled  harmlessly   overhead.  be issued at a premium of 15 per cent.  having been all taken up.  'Summary or Financial Statement.  Total cash income    $1,951,233.34  Total expenditure, including appropriation for losses  under  adjustment.   .1,890,347.57  Had not  the  firing been  generally  too high,    the  overhead shrapnel must have caused a  great deal of damage and some casualties.;     For four hour's the two guns'  continued to throw shells with hardly  a moment's   cessation.       By   eleven  o'clock, however, the Boers had realized that    the  plucky garrison was  ���������not in the least alarmed, and meant to  see it out until help came. After eleven  the guns slackened, and the Boers: in  the mealie field fired on the left, while  a small'party on the right, close to the  line, made a last attempt to get nearer.     Some twenty Boers tried to rush  ! across the line and get into she station from the south.     The Cheshires',  however, stood grimly firm, and the  enemy  were driven  off,  leaving  one  man lying close to the trenches with  a  bullet  through  his  head.      Previously to this Several saddles had been  emptied, while not a man amongst the  defenders had received as much as: a  scratch.   Towards one o'clock an armoured train carrying a number of infantry  and  an   artillery detachment  with  a i5-pounder  came  up the  line  from Pretoria, and.then Gen. W- G.  Knox, with the 2nd Cavalry Brigade,  appeared on the skyline from Elands-  fontein.     The Boers saw it was.' high  time to    retire.    A    few shells from  Knox's    guns   expedited their movements, an din the partial pursuit their  ments, and in    the    partial pursuit  which followed 8 prisoners were taken.      The  Boers carried off most of  their dead and wounded, so that their  losses' are not known, but it is safe to  say t'hat they did not by any means  get away scathless-.  60.885.77  60.393.26  Total assets.     .

Annual Meeting  of the Shareholders of this company  was held, at its offices, Toronto, on  Thursday, 28th February, 1901.  The President, Hon. Geo. A. Cox, occupied the chair, and Mr. P. HI Sims,  who waa appointed to act as Secretary, read the annual report,, of which  the following is a summary :��������� '  Your directors have the honor  Security to policyholders  $1,581,457.22  The President, who moved the adoption of tho report, which was seconded by the Vice-President, referred to  the exceptionally    heavy    losses)   by  fire on this continent during the year  under review, and said that; although  the report just road did not present  so favorable a showing, as! far as the  balance between income and expenditure for  the year was concerned, as  the     preceding    annual    statements  which he had had the honor during  the past eight years of .'submitting to ���������  the shareholders,  he felt that there  was perhaps aa' much matter for congratulation in  the figures embraced  in the accounts for the year 1900 as in  those  of  some  preceding statements  which have shown a more favorable  balance sheet.     It was gratifying to  observe the continued increase in the  volume of business transacted. While  there had been a satisfactory growth  of  income from  fields in   which the  company had for years past been carrying on  operations,  he was glad to  be able to say,   that, from   tho agencies  recently established  beyond the  limits of this    continent,    very    encouraging    returns    have  been    received.   The predictions that  the directors ventured to make a year ago  as to a probable improvement in conditions of marine business had, he waa  pleased to say, been realized, and, as a  result  of  the    better    rates    which,  speaking    generally,    had    prevailed  both upon inland lake and ocean risks  there had been a fair margin of profit  upon  the  business    written  in    that  branch  during  the year.   But    what  in his estimation was more a matter  of congratulation  than  any  of    tha  figures to whichl he had referred was  the fact that at the close of a year  in which the fire losses in Canada and  the  United  States have    been    very  largely in excess of those of average  years they were able to present a balance sheet which showed a loss of less  than one per cent, upon the premium  income as the result of the year's underwriting     transactions ��������� that   iB,  ignoring the income derived from interest and rent.  The report was, on motion, adopted,  and the following gentlemen were reelected to. serve as directors during  the ensuing year;���������  Hon. Geo. A. Cox, J. J. Kenny, Hon.  S. C Wood, Thos. Long, John Hoskin  K.C., LL.D., H. M. Pellatt, R. Jaffray,  A. Myers and E. W. Cox.  At a meeting of the board held subsequently, the Hon. Geo. A. Cox was  re-elected President and Mr. J. J.  Kenny Vice-President.  present the annual report and financial statement of the company's sixty-  seventh year, duly vouched for by its  auditors.  It will be noted that there,,has been  a considerable increase in the premium  income for the year, this being mainly  due toi the business derived from the  new fields, in whioh the company has  established business connections, and  also to the improved conditions that  have prevailed in the marine business.  Two half-yearly dividends have been  declared at| the rate of 7 per cent, per  annum, amounting to $60,323.96, and  the reserve fund has been increased to  $581,457.22.  In view of the abnormal fire losses  on this continent during the year 1900,  including the disastrous conflagration in April last in the cities of Hull  and Ottawa, which involved a loss of  property to the value of about ten  million dollars, your directors feci  that the statements herewith submitted must be regarded as satisfactory by  the shareholders.  The capital stock of the company  has been mcreased to one million dollars, in accordance with the by-law  passed at the last annual meeting, the  CUISINE NOTES.

The plaintiff in the action   of Harris  vs. Pitta lias been   awarded   a verdict,  judgment   in   the   matter  having been  handed down by Mr. Justice Irving, the  trial judge.   Mayor Pitts  built a store  which,was alleged to,occupy,.part of the  street, and to militate against the value  of property owned by Mr. Harris on the  opposite eide of   the   thoroughfare.   In  his suit Mr. Harris sought  to have the  portion of the building on  the street removed.   The judgment is as follows:  "To entitle a private person  to maintain an action   for  damage  caused  by  that which is a public nuisance (such as  the erection by the defendant of a house  in the middle of a street plainly is) the  damages must be particular, direct and  substantial.   The  rule   is   founded on  public   policy to   prevent  an indefinite  multiplicating of suite.   The only question in this   case  is.   Has the damage  sustained by the plaintiff brought him  within the rule?     <r  In Beckett vs. Midland Ry. Co. (1. r.  3 c. p.) as in this case, the thing complained of was the narrowing of the  highway opposite the plaintiff's premises and thereby obstructing-'the free  access thereto. This was held to be  such a private and particular damage as  would entitle to bring an action.  "The building is.a pernament build  ing and, if permitted to remain, wi  permanently narrow the roadway. It  was established to my satisfaction that  thu erection of this obstruction substantially lessened the selling price or  value of the plaintiff's property.  "I think he is entitled to the relief he  prays with costs. (Signed)  P. vE. Ikving, Judge."  As   there   is   no   order attached it is  hard   to   tell   just what the  judgment  means.���������Ed. -Review.
