The  superior ability of the Boers as rille-  inen accounts largely for the heavy  losses of the British. Could the  British handle their mies as well as  tliey handle their artillery, or as the  Boers handle their rifles, much ot  laeir loss ol' life would have been  saved.  The great losses of the British have  occurred   in   lhis  as  in  the  previous  Boer war in underrating the resource  and determination of the enemy.    At  Glencoe the British Hussars and Fusilier detachment found that the Boers  in retreat were just as dangerous as  at  anv   other   time.      They   do  not  lose their heads, are  not subject to  panic, and cannot be chased by small  numbers.      The disaster to Carlton s  column on October 30th was the result of treachery taking advantage of  luc_. of suspicion in causing the mule  stampede followed up by bull hcaded-  ness in attempting to carry out orders  whose  successful execution had been  rendered   Impossible   by   the   loss   of  the  ammunition,  against  such   a ioe  as the Boers.     Had the enemy been  of  a  less  determined   or   calculating  nature such a bluff might have worked       But the Boers knew    that   tlie  column had no reserve    ammunition,  and tlierfore could not hold out long  it pressed with rifle    fire.

M.Cue.  Cook Myer, and Mrs. Hagel in charge  of Sergeant Rndd was a passenger by  Tuesday's   train.      The   bar  war-   represented    by Lawyer    Greene, A. L.  Sifton,   Crown  prosecutor,  and   P.   J.  Nolan,    barrister,  of    Calgary.      Mi.  Nolan, instructed by Lawyer  Oivsne,  appeared* on  behalf  ot  the   prisoner.  The sample room of the Alberta hotel  was    improvised    as ii court    h'1 ise.  About  GO people were present.      The  press was well   represented, thc Lacombe  Weekly  Press,  Edmonton  Post  and lnnisfail Free Lance.     At .1 l".~n.  the court opened.  Mrs. Hagel -was the first v.*.mess  called. She vvas duly sworn and 4cs-  tified as follows:  My -name is Mary 1_. Hagel and I  live about six miles north of Lacniube.  Arrived with my husband Nclaiu*.  Hagel from Michigan in April 1"-US.  and lived with my brother, Alva, ami  ,vll, 40 ,.������������������     _. ._ my two children,  aged respect*.wiy ���������">  t-ike is not likely to occur again.

After  searching for about an hour ' we uncovered   the   body   about   100'* yards  east of the trail  leading to    the Indian reserve on the south bank of the  creek.   The thorax was first exposed,  then the head, lying to the east, face  on   left   sid,e,     the   trunk  with   the  stream.    His evidence"was very similar  to  that given al   the   inquest  at  Lacombe.    He was severely cross examined  by Mr. Noian and seemed    a  little rattled.      However, he stuck to  the  original,  the  fractures  could not  have been made by a spade but by an  instrument sueh as a hammer   or   a  straight piece of iron.   He could not  tell from an examination of the skull  whether the   injuiie.     had   been   inflicted before or    after    death, owing  to the lapse of time and the advanced  stage of decomposition of the corpse.  Mr.  Nolan  showed considerable  skill  in his cross examination of this witness.

The most bloodthirsty reader of -war  news cannot complain about the de-  lav of either side in forcing the fight-  n'g in the present war.     The battle  of Glencoe was fought on October ?yui.  Elandslaagte oil the 21st   Reifontein  on  thc  24th,  McFarquhar's   farm  on  Novemebr 2nd,  Hepworth's    hill    on  November 3rd.      These were all important actions involving heavy losses  on both sides;  but the intervals between w������re not intermissions    m tho  work of killing, they were only lulls,  in which the losses were counted b>  tens   instead   of  hundreds.      This  is  onlv one field    of   operations���������Natal.  Since tho loth continuous fighting lias  been  going  on at Mafeking, and  intermittent fighting    and    killing    in  Rhodesia and  at Kimberley  as  well.  So  far  the British must    have    lost  fully 2,300 men    in killed,    wounded  and" captured;  and although the Boer  losses are not definitely known,  and  most likelv have been exaggerated by  British reports, they are admitted to  be large.      As the result of the first  two battles'the    British    had    taken  nearly 900 prisoners, a fair indication  that the Boers had lost as heavily as  themselves.      The  heavy  total losses  ' have been accentuated by thc loss in  leading officers   on both   sides.     The  British   have lost   General    Symons,  second in command  in Natal;   Lieut.  Egerton,  of  the  naval   artillery,  and  very many lesser officers of note. .The  Boers, have  lost  General. Kock,' their  second in command in Natal,.General  dchiel, their chief of artillery.-'General  Viljeon,    General   Botha, and ��������� many  other lesser leaders.     So far tlje. gait  has been fairly even; but the 'flj 2e has  been too*switt to last.     It'is already  clear that the result is merely a matter of which side can stand the,pace  -the longest.      As to which* side'that  is no one, even the Boers themselves,  can now have any doubt.  The fact is now apparent that the  Boers  went  into   the   war  under  a  number of very serious misapprehen*  sions.      Amongst these were:      That  flght.      That  once  he  docs   learn,   ho  knows,   and  takes no chances.  The lessons of the war. written as  they have been in the best blood of  the empire, will have their natural  and proper effect both upon the British army and people. The people  will understand their supreme interest  in the army and its efficiency, and the  army will have learned in what points  present efficiecy must be improved.  The latest killing appliances are in  use in this war. Their introduction  necessitates changes in modes of  fighting. This is a valuable rehearsal  for the great European tragedy,  which any day may be put upon the  stage.  mere is no doubt that when this  war is over the British army will be  even a better fighting machine than  it is today, and the British nation  wm be better able to maintain their  present proud position in the world  than they ever were before.���������Edmonton Bulletin.

A clever pen picture  of the Hon  J. Chamberlain in parliament is given  by   one    of  onr    Old    Country    exchanges just to hand:  "The great combat ot the week-has  not taken    place at Glencoe. but    at  Westminster.      The    encounters    between the Boers and the British have  paled in importance before the battle  royal waged   between.   Mr. Chamberlain and his opponents.     IL is not a  new   experience  to  find  the  Colonial  minister  in the ranks of the gladiators.     He lias a record for war.     lie  ���������has been in  arms and eager for the  -fray ever since he took a prominent  place in politics, and on many an occasion he has proved himself a first  class fighting man.     lt would not be  crue to say that Mr. Chamberlain has  ever  been  a   generally popular  mau.  tiis is not the temperament to beget  unqualified love and admiration. Such  a man     in     such a position,    makes  enemies bv' the very  defects of  his  qualities.     lt has been so throughout  In the old days when he  ren in a two seated democrat and  team of horses, leaving home tit *.'.SJ  a.m.-  Here Mr. V. 3. Nolan ordered other  witnesses out of court.  AVe drove north.  Do you know McCue?  1 know Tom Medic.  Did  you see several  men    o������i    tho  bridge on "Wolfe Creek?  Yes. 1 saw three or four but did  not know them. We crossed tho  bridge and went to look at some land.  Where did you slop for dinner?  At the other side ot Wolfe Creek.  Had dinner at l.p.m. Start. _ for  home at 2 p.m. iu a southerly direction. &  The witness then .made lhe following statement:   ���������  "A    person made    me   promise    to  swear and condemn my brother Alva."  Who did so?  Mr. Ledgerwood.  When?  The night of the 1st or 2nd of September. ���������  Why  did  he do so?  IIo said he was suspected. .  Then half a mile from the creni" my  husband grumbled about the country,  saying it was not fit for an Indian or  a nigger to live in. My bro the.- told  him he had written him the truth  about the country, whereupon Hi'gel  grabbed my brother by the throat and  commenced to choke him.* My "oromei  the British would not= flght. That Republican who did "not hesitate*  the British could not fight them. Tha ^^ 'at he thought, he stood up  It-   tlio   I"t.itic_    rlirl    flrrht   i.hr_v    could J       _. ,       ^���������:.;i..  if the British did fight they could  destroy them without serious loss to-  themselves. That the Boers of Cape  Colony and Natal would rebel and assist theni. That a combination of  European powers would interfere on  their behalf. So far as the game has  gone it would appear that they have  been mistaken on all these points.  When the magnitude of their mistake  dawns upon them the conlidence which  urged them on to extreme effort at  the beginning of the struggle may fail  Ihem. If they cannot capture Ladysmith before reinforcements arrive  their finish is in near sight. If they  do capture Ladysmith it will only be  deferred a few months, for their losses  in the atttack will more than counterbalance the prestige of victory.  While the Boers are acquiring valuable knowledge that they are not the  whole  push  in this  little  world,  the  British   public and  the   British  army  are also in the way of learning some  very valuable and  much  needed  les-  faons.     The fact that less than a quarter of a million of people have dared  _ to. challenge, the  British    empire to  "battle, and that in"t*n?Tiattle_th~e"_em~  pire has suffered  reverses  which has  caused it to shiver from centre to circumference must shake the complacence of the most self-confident jingo,  and give fooji for   earnest thought to  people   of   ostrich     disposition    who  think the empire is so firmly established that nothing can shake it.     -The  attitude" of the European nations also  .hows clearly that the nation which  prides itself on  its    truth and righteousness  is   still   "perfidious   Albion"  ..  to them, and hsted to the last extremity.     No matter who tho enemy, or  ������������������vhat his cause,    so long    as    he is  against Britain.      It is well that the  war occurred, and that the British reverses have been suffered, so that the  British nation as onc man should see  where they stand; and should see that  if  British  liberty anil  Britsh  civilization  are worth  preservinK -they must  be preserved by the samo  means by  which they were established���������the willing and unlimited sacrifice of money  and blood.     We can see in the action?  of the Boers towards the Outlanders,  and in the frowning faces of Russia,  of France, of Germany, and  of Austria, os in a mirror, the result to the  humblest subject, and the most distant  colony of Britain, as well as to hated  England, should Briiish military glory  fade  or   British   military   prestige  be  destroyed.  Thank God. although British reverses have been suffered, and more  may yet be suffered In the war, there  is no danger of loss of prestige. The  loss of prestige is not in heing beaten,  but in staying beaten. So far as this  war has gone British troops havo not  ���������been beaten. It is true that a small  ���������and a large detachment have been  surrounded and overwhelmed, hut in  fair field���������and on thc enemy's own  ground���������they havp tnor" than maintained tlieir reputation ns against a  MJ-herto invincible foe.

"One person," he  remarked,  "had said  lie was  a devil  in human  shape;   another    had    said  he wished  he were to lie hung,  and  that he (the person referred to) would  assist iu the operation;    a. third    denounced him as au Atheist;  a fourth  accused him of having made a fortune  by dishonorable means:  a fifth asserted that he had stopped    up   a public  footpath; n sixth declared that he was  making a large profit by letting allotments at.a fabulous rate;    a seventh  had said that while he was a cabinet  minister he  had  used  his knowledge  for the purpose of speculating in Egyptian stocks; while an eighth had accused him of investing all his money  in foreign manufactures    in order to  -avoid-payment-of-thc-lncome-tao__L-He.  smote Ins assaillauts then    with    the  same  vigor that he showed      in  the  house   in   his   remarkable  speech   on  Tbursday night; years do not diminish  the eage*ness for the fray;  age does  nor.  mitigate  the  venom  of  the  acid  tongue:   the   cold,   unsympathetic  exterior  masks    as    it always    did  the  fire of the man who would rather lead  a forlorn hope than be out of the fighting.      Tho latest speech  is one tliat  will not be forgotten soon.     It began  with rare bitterness, and merged into  a  defence   so    cogent,    logical,    and  closely reasoned  that  his battle    was  won the moment he sat down.

The same    night  Alva went back on horseback, taking  a spade with him and burled the body.  On Tuesday.

Alva  would  not.      The letters .Alva wrote  to Hagel in Michigan are at my house  T   think.       My    husband    quarrelled  with mo about the letters.     The contents of the letters were true.   ,Alva  was the heavier man of the two. :.Iy  hushancl    was  thin    and  in    delicate  health,  his  heart being weak.

Kte^v___ii'ii"r___i_-  ���������HH  Urn  ift  ___________  A WESTERN ARTIST  And His Pictures of Real Ranche Life  and Indian Scenes  From the  Calgary Herald  Quietly   and   unobtrusively  during  the late summer, and fall, when the  leaves were turning and nature looked her prettiest, a rancher-artist bas  been painting glorious pictures of  Alberta scenery.  His name is John Innes and to his  intimate friends he is known to he  one of the most genial spirts that  ever lived. In Calgary's very early  days he was a cowboy. Then he embarked on the stormy sea of journalism, and in the days when Calgary  was a great "woolly" western town he  divided his energies between sketching bucking bronchos, depicting  prairie life and character in vivid  prose, and rustling for a precarious  existence. We have his partner's  word for lt that when 'everything  was settled up at the end of each  month the struggling scribes had 10  cents each as net profit.  While not over burdened with filmy  lucre, however, the publishers had the  satisfaction of having got out very  creditably the only illustrated journals in the Territories, to wit: Thc  Prairie Illustrated and Mountain  Echoes.  Then Mr. Innes allied himself with  the effete east and his prairie friends  had to be content with an occasional  reminder of his existence in the  shape ot ranching illustrations in Saturday Night, the Saturday Mail, Empire and other cultured journals.  . ��������� To the joy of old pals John returned  to his first love this summer and was,  of course, received with open arms.  But there was a touch of sadness in  the reception.  A critical inspection revealed deterioration that brought tears to the eyes  of his sorrowing admirers. .' He was  arrayed in purple,and fine linen. He  wore a white collar and a boiled shirt.  Worse than that, it was a dude collar.  His shoes also bore evidence of frequent polishings and tho cut ot his  whiskers was neat and * trim. It is  reported that,when Fred Stimson saw  the awful change in what had once  been a promising young man he wept  audibly and falling on his neck cried  between sobs; "0 Absalom, my son,  my son!"  ' But. so potential is the influence of  western life, it was not many clays  hefore the old Adam re-asserted himself,' and behold, our cowboy artist arrayed in Stetson hat. woollen shirt  and other proper and civilized habiliments, was seated on a rock sketching the festive steer and the cow-  puncher in his native element. Likewise lo the poor Indian. And the  societv belles of the Sarcee reservation. " And' the tepees; the travols,  the caynses,' the rocky banks of the  rivers ot the range country, tho pine  trees, the red sun- sets, the foothills  and "the' snow tipped Rockies behind,  and all' the other thousand and one  seductive glories of this once-seen-  never-forgotten Alberta.  The Herald man-dropped into John  Innes' studio yesterday and wanted to  spend all his earthly "possessions ou  oil paintings. Since returning from  Pekisko* and. other ranching^ centres  Innes has finished .a large number of  sketches, some for the illustrated  papers, some for general  sale. -  Among the fifteen canvasses scattered around, the studio we-noticed the  following subjects: -."     -  ,���������  '.'Mountain Sheep Hunting," a very  realistic' picture of a ��������� hunter- creeping  up.ou his game./*" ^,  -    -i  *    .  "The Night Herd," a cowboy keeping watch over'his herd by night, the  horned cattle resting, peacefully '", in  front of a small lake.'  "An Indian'Pony Race,'' very picturesque".      * " J        -  "Lost," a real work of art, representing a stockman leading his 'broncho in a blinding snow storm, looking  for a trail.  '"Hawks," an old    time sceno, very  striking, showing a couple of excited  Indian bucks  on  a hill    watching    a  prairie schooner in the valley below.  Other paintings represent Indians in  ���������   a snow storm, High River at Pekisko,  Cruising, and several Indian views. *  Mr. Innes is the only Canadian artist  *   in his line���������ranching and Indian subjects. .    He is doing much' for Alberta  .    and for art, and it with the greatest  pleasure  The   Herald   pays  him   this  slight tribute.     We hope he will continue to paint many pictures of nature  as we have it in Alberta and that his  brush may prove to be bis fortune.  too, especially in the smaller towns.  The first time I hit France I was  selling West Indian perfumed beans.  They were the ordinary beans of the  Boston-beloved variety. I dyed the  beans blue and soaked 'em over night  in bum cologne. I used a Mexican  vaquero's makeup on this trip and  sold the beans a dozen for a franc,  with a spellbind about the perfume  lasting a 1000 years and so on. It  was like getting money in a letter,  this bean fake in France.  "All of the South Americans, from  Panama to Patagonia, are pretty  easy to gold brick. All over South  America I sold thousands of gallons  of 'whitening tonic to make the half  breeds white. I made it o' nights as  I went along out of any old thing  that wasn't harmful���������dandelion roots  wild cherry bark and such stuff. The  governments got after "me finally for  it, though, and that's the reason the  haltbreods of South' America are  still reddish in color. Their governments wouldn't let 'em buy enough  of my 'whitening tonic,' you see.  "The Mexlcans'll buy any old thing.  You may not believe it, but I sold  "thousands of dollars worth of common bar soap for removing grease  spots on one trip down there, notwithstanding the fact that tbe attire  worn by tho people who bought the  soap was as much of the G-String  order as the law of the land would  permit. I sold 'em safety razors that  cost me 25c each wholesale for ?3,  which was as low down as I ever  played It, as any man who has ever  used a safety razor will admit.  "I would have made a mllion dollars out of the natives of tho Fiji  islands if tlie jealous while residents  down there hadn't chocked me off.  As it was, I cleaned up a good bit  of money on the scheme. I traded off  blue spectacles with tho Fijis for  cochineal. Cochineal at that time  was worth its weight in silver. The  Fijis went crazy over my stock of  goggles and I had a slew of the  islanders gathering cochineal for me  till the consuls hunted me out. I  sent the cochineal up to the States  in the Australian steamers and it was  a pretty good rake-off.   ,  I was working up a scheme to sell  the Kaffirs some stuff to straighten  out their kinky wool, and make it  look like white man's hair, but the  white people down there wouldn't  stand for it, although there was millions in it." ���������*'  FIFTY DAIRY RULES  Fifty short, practical dairy rules,  which should be observed in the production and handling of pure milk,  have been printed by the United  States department of agriculture on  large cardboards for posting in stables  and dairy rooms, and widely 'distributed to milk producers:  The Owner and His Helpers.  1. -Read current dairy articles and  keep posted on new ideas. -  2. Observe and enforce the utmost  cleanliness about the cattle, their attendants, the stable,"the dairy, and  all utensils.  3. A.person suffering from any "disease, or who has been exposed to a  contagious disease, must reihain away  from the cows and,, thc milk. ������������������   .  , '' ' The Stable.' -.  4: Keep dairy cattle in a room or  building by themselves. It is preferable to have "no cellar below, and no  storage   loft   above.  5. Stables should be well ventilated  and'lighted and:drained; should have  tight.floors,and walls and be plainly  constructed.'1 ��������� ���������. - .**   -, * _. -.  6.^ Never use musty pi- dirty litter.  v7. Allow no strongly smelling material in the stable for any length of  time. Store;the manure under cover  outside the sow stable, and remove it  to'a distance'as often as practicable.  S.r Whitewash the stable once or.  twice a year. .Usefcland plaster in  the manure gutters dally.,  9. Use no dry, dusty feed just previous,to milking; if fodder is dusty,  sprinkle it before it Is fed.  30. Clean and thoroughly air y the  stable before milking. In hot weather  sprinkle the floor.  11. Keep the stable and dairy room  in good condition, and then insist  that the dairy, factory or place where  the milk goes, be kept equally well.  '  - '   The Cows.   .  low the hands td come in contact with  the milk.  30. Do not allow dogs, cats or loal-  ers to be around at milking time.  31. If anv accident occurs by which  a pail full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this  by straining, but reject all this milk  and rinse the pail.  32. Weigh and record the milk  given by each cow, and take a sample  morning and night, at least once a  week, for testing by the fat test.  Care of Milk.  33. Remove the milk of every cow  at once from the stable to a clean, dry  room, where the air is pure and  sweet. Do not allow cans to remain  in stables while they are being filled.  34. Strain the milk through a metal  gauze and a flannel cloth or layer of  cotton as soon as it is drawn.  35. Aerate and cool the milk as  soon as strained. If any apparatus  for airing and cooling at the same  time is not at hand, the milk should  be aired first. This must be done in  pure air, and it should then be cooled  to 45 degrees if the milk is for shipment, or to 60 degrees if for home  use or delivery to the factory.  36. Never close a can containing  warm milk which has not been aerated.  37. If cover is left off the can, a piece  of cloth or mosquito netting should  be iised  to keep out insects.  38. If milk is stored, it should be  held In tanks of fresh cold water (renewed daily), in a clean, dry. cold  room.

"Maybe you'think they wonf go."  he would bawl, holding up one of his  watches, when the purchasers were  backward. "That's where you're away  off; listen to this onc tick." And  .be would Imitate the, ticking of a  watch witli his mouth, so that the  ticking'could be easily heard by the  jays on the outer limits of the crowd  around his torch-illumined carriage.

The following short glossary of  current Boer terms, will be of interest  at this time:  The language of the Boers in South  Africa, is grammatically speaking the  language of the people ot Holland.  They speak Dutch as their forefathers  in Holland spoke it, and speak it  now. They are called Boers, because  that is a Dutch word, which describes them. It means a farmer, and  agriculture is the main pursuit of  the compatriots of Oom Paul. A  knowledge of Dutch would supply an  explanation of the odd-looking words  that are used now aud then in the  war reports from the republic. It  would enable -one to pronounce these  words as they should be enunciated.  Dutch diphthongs are not given the  samo sound-as their equivalents in  English. Thc double "o" for instance,  in Dutch, lias the same sound as "o"  Rome, while the dipthong "oe" is  pronounced by the Dutch as we pronounce "oo" in boot. The  English pronounciation of these two  dipthongs is the reverse of that given  them by those who speak dutch. An  "ou" has the sound of "ow" in owl.  The sound of "ui" Is nearly like that  of "oy" in boy. The Dutch double  "aa" is the same as then English  "a'.' In war. As there is no "y" in  Dutch is place is taken by "ij" which  is  sounded as "*y"  in  defy.  If one, therefore, would pronounce  Oom Paul properly, he should say it  as if it were spelled "Ome Powl.'' The  family name of Gen. Joubert would  for the same reason be -pronounced  as if it were spelled "Yowbert." The  Boer is pronounced by tbe Afrikanders as if it were of two syllables, the  first -long and the second short, thus,  "Boo-er." The plural is not "Boers"  it Is "Boeren" and is pronounced  "Boereh," because the final "n" is  slurred.  - Here* are some of the Dutch words  that are oftenest in print in connexion with tho news of the Transvaal,  .and their pronounciation and meaning: " . *  ' Bloemfontein Obloom-fou-tine)  flower fountain.  ���������-  Boer   (boo-er)   farmer.

This is one of  our great cattle feeders and. a good  many people arc wondering why.wlth  corn so cheap and. plenty, he is marketing   such young and light cattle.  The writer recently;had a pleasant  chat with Conrad    Kohls,      of Deer  Lodge.   Mr. Kohls Is a pioneer in the  western   range  cattle   business,    and  also, in the business'of breeding pure  bred cattle.   On the range in 1868   he  bought   10,000   cattle,   mostly    high-  grade Shorthorns, and  ever since he  has been    a breeder of this class of  stock.   He has also   a  fine   herd   pf  Herefords. He Is of the opinion that  tbe days of the western cattle grower  are numbered and that tho number is  not large.    The     encroachments    of  sheep-growers are steady and strong,  and It will    bo but a few yeare until  there is no public grazing land that  will  support cattle.      Of course    he  considers' that  the government is to  blame by  giving  sheepmen   a .bonus  in the shape of'high tariff on wool.  Mr.   Kohls says ft  is    his intention  hereafter to provide winter feed,  ln  the shape of hay, , to carry 'his cattle through the severe winters.   Last  year Mr. Kohis marketed 485 .cars of  cattle In Chicago, and   did   not come  to see any of them sold.

The iitteinpl, which is being engineered by the government i libido  clique in town to compel the city  council to v.'icnte their present quarrels in the government office is about  ns small a piece of business-is hrscome  under the fll.llAl.l_t" [notice for some  time past. The object of it is to force  (he oily lo rent 11 certain building, in  wliich a pi liniment favorite of the  ring is interest ed .mil il is being worked by the shameless and unscrupulous  aid oT the gold commissioner, and the  local handle which 11 recent appointment nt. Victoria gave lo tlm government poll in this place. These people  care mil hing tlmt they are endeavoring lo saddle 11 totally unwarranted  expense on the ratepayers of this city.  They are,there for nil there is in it for  themselves and their friends. The  local government officials have no  more use for the room occupied by the  cily  authorities   now  than   tliey  ii  THE  No IIlustkii, No 1'ess, Just Business, That's Ai.l.  hnd  last March and have simply lent themselves to this .small and dirty scheme  for the benefit of one of the members  of the ring vvho imagines tlmt by  working the oracle in this way he can  compel the city to rent a building, in  which he is concerned. Of course the  gold commissioner was only too  pleased to full in with this' measly  little, job. When you want something  done too mean and petty for any  ordinary man to dieiini of even considering the idea, your pure, lofty,  high-souled, patriotic politician is the  mini to shoulder tlie job.  REVELSTOKE   PUBLIC  SCHOOL  Recent Improvements Made By the  Trustees and Department in this Important Institution of-Our Rising City  t '  Great improvements  Imve  recently  been made and ol hers are   in   ronlein-  pliUiou in the   buildings  and  grounds  of llie   public  school.   Two  nevv  furnaces, one of a capacity of S.'i.OOO cubic  inches and   the  olher ot   25,000 have  been installed under t.he main building  while,   the   old   one   hns   been   placed  under tbe old building,   novv   used  for  Ihe  primary  classes "exclusively.    By  this arrangement ������n ample  supply  of  beat   has   been    assured   for   all   the  looms, while lhe  old  stoves  with .all  thcirntiendaiit annoyances have been  relegated to the buck numbers  of the  past.    Another improvement, has been  the piovision   of  each   room- with   a  wash-stand supplied  with " water   trom  tlle   waterworks,   where   tlie  childien  can.praetice the lesssons of cleanliness  inciili-iilcil by their teachers.    Anolbcl1  up-lo-dnte addition to  the  appliances  of   the   school   is   un    electric' gong,  whii h is to be  installed  in   the  pinch  of the new building and vvill sound lhe  bonis for opening and  closing  for  nil  the rooms so"us to  insure  punctuality  anil regularity in the discipline of  the  school.    A   pleasing   feature  recently  introduced is the nrrav of house plants  iii  Principal  Sullivan's   room.  ywhich  is  under   the charge  of  the  children  of   his   division.    This   idea   is to   be  further   carried   out,   in   the  grounds  around   the   school   next, summer, in  which extensive llower beds have been  prepared  where  the  scholars   will   lie  given  charge  to  cure  for  the   plnnts  themselves.    The  rest of  the  ground  h.i-1   been   levelled   and    grass- sown,  while fresh trees huvs been   planted to  replace   those   wliich  nre   dead.   The  whole is to be  surrounded   Iiy   a  neat  picket  fence  for  which   the  contract  will be let  next  week,   so   th'at next  year our schoolhouse* and grounds will  be 11 verv  ornamental   feature  of  the  city. -  The, blackboards .in . "he  new  rnoms have proved very unsatisfactory  nnil new ones are to be   put  in   across  the entire end of each  room   in  order j  to supply  th"  needs  of  the  teacher*-*,  the blackboard being the basis   of   the  modern  system   of  education.    From  the above description it  will   be  seen  tliat the  trustees  liave   worked   bard  lo  get   the   school-1   a-   efficient"   and  al tractive a.s  possible and   they  have  found the department willing  to sup-  plv all 1 heir requirements.     There are  now 225 Children on the  roll  and  new  ones are  enming "in   every   week   so  I that there i.- nn pro-pert of any lee up  I in the re-ponsil'ilities   nf   the   UUnices  ' in   keening  pace  wil li   the  rapid   in-  cii'ii.-e of the population   of the  town.
