A largelv signed petition was presented hy it. Tapping, asking that all  sidewalks bo built hy half frontage  tax.  The city solicitor pointed out thnt,  tlie council could not hind ils successors bv declaring for a. half frontage  tax principle of building sidewalks.  Anv council could by declaring a sidewalk of public ni'ie.-sity build it by  half ftontage and halt general tax. but  each case would have to bu separalely  clecided on.

So far from the close crowded city,  With its sins and Its sorrows ko deep.  Its out on the open green prairie.  And find there the peace that I seek.  Chorus:  So its oh for the life on tho prairie!  And its oh for the hraeze on the cheek!  And its oh for the bloom of its roses!  For there is the life that I seek.  I left the old land 'cross.the ocean,  And little did I think when at home  That my life would he spent   ou the  prairie,  Ab o'er its lone regions 1 roam.  Its solitude truly is awful,   .  Its stillness so intense." and so deep  That at times it appalls by its calmness.  As its meanings I earnestly seek.  Chorus:  So its oh for the lifo on tho prairie!  And its oh for the hreeze .on the check!  And its oh for the bloom of its roses!  For there is the life that I seek.  Tet its wide open bosom 's pleasant.  It Is just-the sweet prairie for me.  For its spirit has captured me wholly,  And It'3 life is my life now to be.  For the Hand Who has planned  the  green prairie,  H&6 planned all my pathway for me.  So I'll trust in the   Power Who o'er-  rulcth,  And my home on the prairie shall be.  Chorns:  So its oh for the life on the prairie!  And its oh for the hreeze on the cheek!

Dominion Rifle Matches  Close  ���������Personnel of the   Bisley  Team  Ottawa, Sept. 2���������The rifle matches  rame to an cud yesterday afternoon.  During the morning the first stage  of the Governor General's match wa-  shot. Magnificent scoring was the  order of the day. Corporal Love,  Manitoba Dragoons, established a  new record over the 200, 500 and SCO  yard ranges, scoring 10a out of the  possible 105. . The really great event  of the day, however, was won by llie  Manitoba team, capturing the ccl1 ���������  brated Provincial match. When it  iii considered that tliere wero onN  nine from that province iind eight  wero required to ninkc up tlie team,  while Ontario ami Quebec has representatives by the hundred, th ���������  victory ot the Mnuilolnins is all the  more praiseworthy. Tliey did it in  splendid style, too, being 22 points  in advance of Ontario, wliich inj  second, and tliey in turn were onlj  ono point ahead of Nova Scotia. Tli ���������  scoi-��������� of lhe Manitoba team was 734  an   average of 92 out of lo-j.  On tho Bisley team Manitoba lias  only ono representative,Private Vic in  ing, who stands fifth.

Oh, the earth is full of sinning  And of trouble and of woe,  But the devil makes an inning  Every time you Bay it's eo;  And the way to set him scowliQg,  And to put him0 bask a pace,  Is to stop this stupid growling,  And to look things in'the face.  If yon glance at history's pages,  * In all lands and eras known.  Tou will find the vanished ages  Far more wicked than our own.  As you scan each word and letter,  You will realize it more,  That the world today is better  Than it ever was before.  There ls much that needs amending  In the present time," no doubt.  -ThereMs-right-that-needs-defending   There ls wrong needs crushing out;  And we hear the groans and curses  Of the poor who starve and die,  While the men with swollen purses  In the place of hearts, go by.  But In spite of all the trouble  That obscures the sun today,  Just remember It was double  In the ages passed away.  And these wrongs shall all be righted,  Good shall dominate the land.  For the darkness now is lighted  By the torch in Science's hand.  Forth from little motes in cha03  We have come to what we are,  And no evil force can stay us,  We shall mount from star to star;  We shall break away each fetter  That has  bound   113  heretofore,  And the world today 1?  better  Than  it ever was before.  Reputation is more than a bubble to  the soap manufacturer.  The softest of snaps is the click of  a well filled pocket book.  You might as well accept__i.be inevitable; even the editors canH decline  it.  A cheerful view of life depends on  knowing which end of the telescope to  look through on dilfeient occasion;..  Some rich people's idea of brick-a-  brac is that it is a megaphone for  their money to talk through.  Fine feathers don't make fine birds.  Instead, nothing makes anything else  of a woman who is a goose, or man  who is a jay.  None. of us wr.iu.-. to hurt anybody  else's feelings: hut it sometimes  seems necessary to our own"peace of  mind.

The victims were a picnic party wmch lofi here yesterday  morning in a yacht. Their destination was McXab's island, about two  miles from the city. The boat reached  its destination in safety and the  pleasure seekers spent an enjoyable  day.

Hamilton of the  citv clerk's office aged 29, J. Hanc ick  aged -10, J. Poole and Edward Judo  of H. M. S. Talbot.  About 5 o'clock the party started to  return home with a strong wind blowing. The wind blew until until it  assuemed thc proportions of a gale  and heavy squalls followed one aftor  the other, in quick succession. it  was one of the most dangerous sailing days that has been experienced  here for some time, and when lhe  boat was in the most dangerous part  of the channel, with all sails sot, a  tremendous gust of wind broke orer  them and tore the mast from its  box.

The palpable and clumsy' parrying of President Kruger has all nnt  exhausted the . patience of British  statesmen, even as it long ago exhausted the patience of tho British  public - both at home and abroad.  Nothing short of an ultimatum of the  most unmistakeable type will, it s  believed, bring Kruger to a just realization of the position, then, he must  either fight or crawl under the barn.  The probabilities are in favor of hi.-:  being forced to fight, for his people,  who have lived in a fool's paradise  since England's blunder at Majuoti  Hill, would never tolerate submission  on' the part of Kruger until driven  to it at the point of the bayoncL  Indeed Kruger has admitted to a  friend that he believed war now .to be  inevitable and that' it will ' come  quickly.   o   ELEVATOR ACCIDENT  St, John, Sep. 2.���������An accidant occurred yesterday on the new Intercolonial grain elevator.
