The dam  looks worse than when I saw it last  year. A new apron should have been  put in during the season of low water  and iu such a way as to protect the  main dam and form n foundation for  the buttress pier, which instead of u  support, ns it was intended, is now  settling away from the main dam*.  This apron might be extended down  stream a little on the north side with  an upward slope towards tlie shore  and would serve to turn the force of  the current away from the flume.  About 50 feet of the flume is partly  undermined and should be' jacked up  and supported with good stone found;  ations. The flume if. leaking agood,  deal. It should be emptied and examined, the rods fixed and tightened.  Machinery. The pillow block of the  turbine shaft is,apparently 'loose and  the friction clutch out of order.

Tracy's estimate for a suitable  extra-water'supply for fire protection  and heneral use provides for a* small  crib dam ou Bridge Creek between dot)  to 400 feet above the C. P. B. .track,  from which a box flume. 12 in. square,  1000 feet long, buried, would convey  the water to a suitable point on- the  west bank of the creek, which would  then be connected by a line of dressed  cedar or steel pipes, 5100. feet to the  reservoir, which would be located in  theiocky pointselected hy the council.  The reservoir would be blasted out and  the bottom* and fcides cemented and  plastered. Twelve iDch steel pipe  would convoy the water across the  .track to Second Strand along" Second  as far as Garden Ave., where a ten  inch main - would take it as far., as  Charles. A four inch connection is to  be made on King St. from James to  Douglas, increasing the pressure at the  corner of Douglas and " King about  ���������_>0lbs.  A ten inch main is to run along McKenzie froni Second St. to thi 'track  and an' eight inch main on Robson,  "fiom ' Secoiid^to-Foiu-thf-and^ along  Fourth to connect with McKenzie.  Twenty additional hydrants and  steel rivitteJ pipe is called for on these  estimates. The general pressure on  the system would be about 100 lbs to  the square inch and the capacity  should give 9 or 10 good flre streams.  The total tost using a cedar box  connection from Bridge Creek to' the  proposed reservoir would be $30,000.  Steel pipe used along this .line* will  raise the cos't $1000. -  The est iniates in detail Are as folio wf:  Dam on Creek - ��������� $   8* ������  Wooden box Hume      '���������-"���������00  Reservoir80x50x20 with capacity  of 500,000 Imp. galls      5000  Piping ." ���������"��������� ���������'14;(B1  Twenty Hydrants   Valves and special castings   Railway crossing, clearing  and  making  road, 'extension of old  system   Lind and rights of way (if not  free)    ���������_��������� ���������"���������  Contingencies '......'...

THE SILVER  LARDEAU  A Budget of Mining and Business Notes From Trout  Lake City.  (From our Special Correspondent)  Trout Lake City,  April 22nd, 1001.  * The Trout Lake district during the  winter months has been quiet, though  considerable    valuable   ore  has  been  and i*? still being shipped to tho smelter. ' One thing we can say for the ore  shipped is that it   wil)   leave  a  large  margin for profits. The Cup ore I think  will lead int values,* though the Nettie  L. is a. good second.'-*      ...  ; The  quantity  shipped   during    the  winter amounts close to 1000 tons, with'  lots still'laying, at' the mines and ore  sheds.   The   1000  tons   of. oie  above  mentioned'will in round numbers net  the   two  mines  something    like   the  following:: The Cup200 tons,  at,$200  pei* ton. allowing $10 per ton  for mining, freight and treatment will leave a  profit  of $32,000,   a    very  handsome  showing for thesmall force employed.  .The Nettie L. with SOO tons, at $128  per Wn,~less $10 for mining, freightand  treatment, leaves the  handsome   balance" of "$70.*tO'J |These  returns   taken  with'the Triune,  Cromwell, and other  promising 'claims will make up about  as"rich a'showing as any district in the  Kootenays.-.AU the ore-taken  from  the mines above mentioned are by no  ���������>_^-5"iX"-Vlr:K.*f1-on*mnt*������s'.nWltml   fni*"the  The two City Lodges Parade to  the Methodist Church.  There was a large attendance of  Oddfellows at the church parade on  Sunday last on the occasion of theS2nd  anniversary of the foundation of the  society of the I. O. O. F. in Baltimore  on Api il 20th, 1810. There were altogether from both Selkirk and  Revelstoke lodges nearly 00 members  un parade. The church, whicli is beginning to get uncomfortably small for  big occasions, was packed to tlmdoors.  The service was very hearty and led  by the well trained choir, the congregation entered into it with great zest  and enjoyment. A striking feature of  the musical portion of the service was  the solo "Watch n'or me, while T  slumber," very pleasingly and effectively rendered by a now addition to  the choir, Miss Gertrude Fee,'a young  lady, who has recently come to reside  in town from Lindsay, Ont. Rev. S.  .1. Thompson took for his text the  words "Uo and do thou likewise" Luke  10. 37. He  dwelt    first   upon   the  statistics of the order from its in.  ception with five members in April 20*  1819 iind its increase to 800,005 lodge  ul&'mhei-s in 1809, during which year  $3,095,488 was paid out in  relief.     He  noted that there, nre in British  Columbia 48 lodges with  '$54,840  of  a  Prospectus of the Company and  Names of the Provisional  Directors.  revenue, out of wliich $21,727 wn������ paid  in relief, ,345 members , lelieved,' 25  brethren, -buried 'and A'.Z fatherless  families assisted.' -  - He noted the Christian origin of the  principles of Oddfellowsbip, the  Fatherhood of God '-and the Brotherhood of. Man and- the necessity of  the cultivation of personal character  in theyirtucs of unselfishness, truthfulness, purity, friendship and love in  order to attain the true ends of the.  Order.  The sermon ,w,is very interesting  and impressive *ind.was icceived with  profound attenfnn.*, A hearty vote of  thanks wns on ine return of the lodges  to their lodge l-noim- tendered to the  preacher lor his able, 'and eloquent  discourse.       ���������    . -  000  1000  1100  ' 300  2553  1010  Lardo Railway Construction. ,' ,  H. W. Voung and J. J. Sullivan,-  C. P. R- engineers, with a numliei* of  assistants, arrived in Nelson yesterday morning from Trail and; iu ~ the  evening left for Lardo, to engage-in  active work on the road frpiii that  The,, party  was  point to Trout Lake,  composed of the officials ' above  named and J. W, McCreoney," *W. K.  Gayer, \V. Fetherstonhaugh,. D.-Tee,  JL B. Dibble, J. Harget, V, Tway,. R.  Loekhart, A. Paget and R." Paget.  Last year a good deal of the roadbed  for this Iwaneh of railway was* pre;  pared and now there are' several/tons  steel on hand ready to lie laid.; >The  Kokanee made a special trip from  Knslo with the engineers on boarJtand  means "VfinfllTs'rtinpIes''-picked for"the  occasion, but general everyday 'ore as  broken aud sacked in the mines and on  the^ - assorting tables; figures ' are  emphatic and speak volumes, for the  future of the Trout Lake mining district. One bright spot' "with the  approach of spring is the extra number of men being put to work on the  Silver Cup mine. Now the railway is  an assured fact to the foot of the  lake, we all earnestly hope the mine  wiii he worked to its'full capacity.  The Triune will work a full complement of men. beginning where the  lessees' left off. The output "may  double or treble the quantity mined  last year. The Cromwell, Metropoli  ton, Sunset and Black Scott groups  will be fighting for first.place in out"  .pi-ft" Taking a look at the possible  summer I should say il ought to be  good.      _ - ��������� r  With the railway will come a lot  of  prospective "speculative  bonders, that  is   parlies   bonding   claims    on    M'.e  strength    of    a    possible   sale,   (only  speculative   mind).    They   have   "no  company behind them, but will try to  "rniike^the- pfospe'euu���������thinl*r"so���������My  advice to holders   of good   everyday  properties   is   to   be careful  in  doing  business   und   not  accept everything  they   say or promise   for gospel,   but  rather give a  working bond to somi  bona flde company,  by which the company agiees to begin work at once on  the claims with as many menus can  conveniently develop it and continue  so to do for two or three months and  if the claims warrant further work the  bonders to pay twenty five per cent of  purchase price  on   the  amount  that  may be agreed between them and the  remaining portions as agreed.   In this  way you give a company the chance  to  prove  partly   what   he or they are  buying and if you have nothing on the  claims you realize it and look'for some  thing better.  The Trout Lake townsite company  combining with the O. P. R. is looked  upon hy business men as a good move  on both sides and' nothing but good  can accrue by the arrangement.*. In  the near future we look forward to  hearing the hammer and saw ac work  on some extensive buildings, plans of  which are already out and as early as  the snow is away they will commence  operations.  Ferguson is quiet, they had their  building boom in mid winter, getting  ready for an early rush. Andy Daney  and Mr. Otto have two good residences  well in hand. Jim Cummings has one  of the largest hotels and best arranged  that I have seen in the district, heated  throughout hy hot air, with the  necessary offices for good accomodation, A*ndy Cummings has made  extensive improvements in the Balmoral and can now accomodate neat  100 guests. The Eagle block is commodious and adds greatly lo the look  of the place.

The first fall  25 per cent on allotment, the second  25 per cent about a month after and  the balance as the directors may deem  advisable. Applications for shares  may be addressed to F. McCarty. The  prospectus says :  ���������The above Company has been formed for the purpose amongst others of  building and operating a Steamer to  navigate the Columbia River between  Revelstoke and Ln. Porte in the Big  Bend District. It is proposed to construct a powerful steamer of light  draught capable of carrying from 30 to  40 tons of freight and with the necessary accommodation for passengers.  The boat will be about 120 feet long  with 24 foot beam.  The early development ofthe mineral  agricultural and timber resources ol  the Big Bend District seems to be of  such vital importance to the citizens of  Revelstoke and the owners of proper  ties in the Big'Bend District, that the  Directors confidently hope , that  sufficient of the stock will be subscribed  at once at par to furnish the ' requisite  funds to justify the early construction  of the steamer.     . , t]  The Proviuci.il Government have  promised to place in the estimates a  giant of $2500 per annum for 3 years  by way. of subsidy to such a steamer  service and this grant alone ought to  be sufficient to meet the ordinary? running expenses of the Company. It is  fully expected that the,revenues of the  Company, to. be derived from this  source and from the freight and  passenger business will be sufficient to  pay. a fair annual dividend on the  capital invested.",    ,     .    ,  ���������        ������������������<.,-.  under the title of the "Enterprise  Cigar Co."

When tbe Tranby Croft gambling  -..caudal attracted attention ia England a decade' ago,-. Qne comment on  tho subject was aa expression ot surprise tbat even la thm quiet of country llfo persons of fashion should And  gambling lor high stakes necessary  to tbelr enjoyment, and could not  finish tbo evening without retiring  utter dinner to'the gambling table,  where tbe diversion might bo baccarat, roulotte or any other game ��������� of  ������������������ * chance that the guesta enjoyed most.  "���������Siat  the  present klmg    ot England  ' should havo travelled with gambling  paraphernalia waa thought anothor  evidence of the sorloasnees with  which this branch ot their a-nuseeaent  was looked after by peoplo ot wealth  and  position.  it was said that tho exposures  which followed tho Tranby Croft  case put for at least some years a,  quietus on English society's taste tor  jjtmlng. At all events, attention was  not again attracted to this wcaltness  a*, it had been beforo. and bo such  'criticism of English society life has  lieen heard in recent years ns that  which Is jUBt now echoing from ono  e.txA of Now York to tho other.  Cor a long time certain houses in  Now York have buzzed with gossip  concerning tho losse made by this  person or that, and tales which ucem  usaggerated to all but those who  imow tho truth aro toM of tho misfortunes that havo come upon this  person or that through de-votion to  thD prevailing passion oC the hour,  or at all events through tho devotion  vt ono person to the game, whatever  tbo individual feelings may ba of the  man or woman forced by clrcumstanc-  us to play. For it is curious that  most ��������� of tho stories of serious losses  refer to persons without a knowledge  ot tho games, who have been-led Into  -playing for the convenience of others  rilher than from any deelro ot their  o'vn.  (������t was a year ago nearly that theso  stdrics of losses at- bridgo which  began to be told in New York. During  tho summer ,they . came ln, greater  numbers from . Newport, - and .this aea-  *. son they. have..reached .the"-.public.  ��������� ��������� through tho pulpit and. in-.other ways  less direct.. ln tho-accounta' of 'losses,  .ind * occasionally ot .winnings, thc  names of persons conspicuous in .bo-  sltity   frequently  occur,    and. indeed.  ���������' most that has been told is -limited.  th two or three houses whore oaly  tho most conspicuous figures in society  gather.  Poker has temporarily disappeared  iit favor of bridgo whist..and oven  tlio private roulette wheels, numerous now in New York, aro not nearly  so active in furnishing "entertainment  aa they were two or three years  jigo. Bridgo whist seem3 to divide  f^vor only with seven handed euchre,  which has lately become an absorbing  pastime for- women; but as the lat:  toi game is rarely played for money,  it is gambling.-only  in  a sense-that  - haa never' been'seriously condemned.  It is a fact-that tho popufcrlty of  gjuns of chance-which now prevails  has led women to gather in theafter-  nnon as-.they . never ,',did" in. the past,  n-torelx to'play cards.   -The -jromen's  - eaphre partles,whteli*aro".us������-Uly"������mlt-  e4 to 21 persons, making three tables,  have supplanted the women's-luncheon  as - a means ot - diversion, and  - have even had -an effect on the afternoon tea, which has lost lta charm  for   those who  can  pass .the   after-  ��������� noon in'the more engrossing sport ol  nlaylng for a turquoise pin or a silver  ojged pocket book. This phase of  tie gambling craze is not a curious  one, however, and-is regarded by  ���������mcial observers as only a sponladic  - reBUlt of the mora absorbing-passion  ,w������ich  ha3  led  to  serious   -financial  losses. -___.._,      ���������c  Nothing can give a better,idea of  tha extent to which womoa aad. mon  arp interested in bridgo whist, than  same ot the "stories now floating  through  New York society.  Tho  most serious   ot   .theee.,   and  'stout the latest, refers to the rase of  '    s young" man who lost ?35W at the  ��������� t-touse of a woman whose nams stand*"  as  solidly   for  millions    as -Trinity  a&urch  does  tor  religion.    He    wad  taolish  enough, cr weak enough,   to  -   play bridge at thin'house one night.  and" to _ose.$3G00.   This��������� sum tw.his  - host, was a mere*agatelle,.and to the  :. vaunan who asktt' him to pay it no-  -. f*jng_ *mnr*>...

"Besides," sin said, "you play  whist, and tho roles ate very much  Uie same. We ea������ all help you with  what you don't .mow."  Hu was "a gentleman and he took a  liand at the table. Possibly because  he was a gentlcaaan he consented to  sit at the table ratil' thc game was  finished and be had lost $400. New.  ono of tho rules cf bridge since it  hai; become suck a matter of business  in Now York, io that losses must bo  paid before tho Dlaycrs leavo tho  house. Various aasusing stories nre  told.of tho means by which women  compel the players to nettle cither  with cash or cHecks before -they  leave. ?*ot ai! ot them have tho  same disagreeabc character as thc experience-that, befell this man:'He "told  tho hostess that be did nochayo J400  about him. tbat bis entire cash assets  were about $35 at the moment, and  that he wonliT two 4 Iter a check the  next day. %tt,  "But yon know it's tho rule," she  said .to him, smiling icily; "for  everybody to pay on soon 'tis tho  game finished. Now. wo shall nil do  that, and you see that it would bo  rather���������-well, rather���������awkward for  some of us i" you should not pay  when yon are called upon to do so."  Tho tone of the woman's volco and  her manner wob a surprise to the'  loser. He had knows her for a good  many years, bnt ho bad never noon  her just like this. Perhaps that, was  because be had never seen her after  bridgo, but he was too much absorbed at tho time to tWak of the cause  of her conduct.  "But Jt is Impossible." he said, "to  do more than I havo offered to tic. 1  do not go about with - $400 in my  pocket 1 came hero with no idea ot  playing cards. 1 never should havo  done so bad I for a moment expected  to lose this money. I cannot afford it,.and did not know tho game,  but I will send you a check the first  thing tomorrow morning."  Tho woman looked dissastisfied.  "But where do yon bank " she said.  "Perhaps our banks aro tho same,  and you could give me thc check  now and we could settle the game, as  I said we ought to. before you. leave  thc house."  Then her good manners- exerted-  themselves .and she snilled apologetically, r "���������-' " "     '     ' '-���������''������������������  " "Don't" think," shetaid, "that I.am  exigent-abont'������.thls'-matter, but this Is  .the rule with'-Sll-of-us here, who frequently play .bridge together. I have  a check book and if the banks aro  the same you could write the check  now."  The banks were not the same, so  that expedient was impossible. The  cxpresion on thf> woman's face was  more determined than ever when  she returned from the desk to which  the two hid retired, leaving the  others settling their scores at the  table.  "Isn't there a place in the.world,"  she said, turning and facing'. him  with' a look of . desperation,, "where  you could get that J400 tonight? Possibly you don't know that I have lost  $600 myself, and I must pay these  people   beforo   they   go".      I .cannot'  ed around tho glorious sovereign banner ot the Unlte-d States.  "In: this banner they "repose their  trust and belief. that under its protection tho Filipino people will attain all those liberties which they are  beginning to enjoy.  "The country baa declared unmistakably ia favor of peace, so be it;  there has tiee-n enough blood, enough  tears and enough desolation.  . "This wish cannot be' ignored by  the men still ln arms it they are  animated by a -desire to serve our  noble people which has thus clearly  manifested itself. So do I respect  this- will, now that it is known to  me.  "After mature deliberation I resolutely proclaim to the world that I  cannot refuse to heed the volco of  a people longing for peace, nor the  lamentations of thousand of families in yearning to Bee their dear  ones enjoying the liberty and the  prosperity of the great American nation.  ','By,. acknowledging and accepting  the sovereignty of tho United States  through the Philippine archipelago,  as I now do., "and -without any'  reservation whatsoever.

REMARKABLE POWBR  A dear old lady was taken one day  to a musical service ln u. Boston  church. She had heard much about  tho fino voice of tho BOprano, and  was prepared for a treat.  She sat ln rapt enjoyment until tho  service was over, and then turned a  radiant face toward her escort, who  was a young grandson.  "Dear boy," she said, "you've given  me a great treat. Her volco Is perfectly beautiful. It made cold chills  run all up and "down my spine."  "It's too bad, grandmamma," said  the boy, "but she didn't sing today,  though sho was there. Tho gentleman next me says she's been suffering from a bad cold, and one of tha  chorus had to sing the solos for her,"  "What dear?" said the old lady,  looking momentarily distressed. Then  hor face cleared, and she patted hia  arm reassuringly.  "Never you mind," she said. "Wo  can come again some time; but after  all, If she can make me feel that wny  without singing, I don't know if  'twould *be wise for roe to hear her,  now would lt?"

A traveller in South Africa tells of  a queer combat ho onco witnessed.  He noticed a caterpillar crawling  along, followed by hundreds of small  ants. Occasionally the ants would  catch up with the caterpillar, and ono  would jump on his back and bite  him.  Pausing, the caterpillar would turn  his head and bite the ant, and thus  kill him.

The caterpillar climbed a stalk of  grass, tail flrst, followed by thn ants.  As each one approached, be seized it  in hia jaws, nnd throw it off tho  stak.

PREVENTION AND CURE OP BALDNESS  I know men who dare not change  lhe place of a picture in their own  houses for fear of being sneered at  by ��������� .their wives. Let your husband  '"potter"^ about -his. house to his  heart's content. Let his study be a  lovely picture ot disorder, and every  timo you enter that room, don't begin to turn up your noso at the  door, and look everywhere to see if  you can discover a little dust on tlie  furniture.  ���������       *       ���������  When you decide to go ln for the  spring cleaning of your house,  choose your -time well, and see'that  it fits in" with, one when your husband can have a little holiday. Spring  cleaning indulged . in indiscriminately  has been the. cause of more disturbance" in temperament and language  than all the immorality of the world  pur"together.""   "  -' "    -=-*-������������������=-���������  Nowhere is the .comparative superiority of the * ounce .of prevention  more strikingly shown than in the  case of baldness. ��������� It' is easy enough,  as a rule, to prevent baldness;, if  the hair receives proper, .care" irom  childhood; but in the great majority  of cases it is impossible, to coax back  a 'satisfactory growth of hair on a  shining pate. .',"���������  The life- of a hair is estimated to  be from two to four or fivo years, at  the end of which time it falls cut  and, if the scalp is healthy, is replaced intime by a new one, which grows  out from tho old hair follicle.  , As long as this process of growth  keeps pace with the falling out of  the hair, there is no danger of baldness, no matter how plentiful tbe  hairs are, shed; but if the loss exceeds the new growth,-as it does when  the scalp is unhealthy,' thinness of  the hair and eventually baldness nre  sure to follow.  We havo seen that tho hat is mainly  responsible for the unenviable distinction > of the male sex as the 'bald  one. "Tho hat' may" cause baldness  directly,, by, diminishing tho blood  supply and consequently tho nourishment of the hair, or .'it may produce  it indirectly, by causing an unhealthy  condition of the scalp, leading to  dandruff.  This alfection, known scientifically as  seborrhea, is thought to b'e due to the  presence of a special microbe, which  finds a favorable soil for its growth  in the poorly nourished, overheated  and poorly ventilated 6calp.  Tho prevention of baldness calls  first for reform in thc matter of headgear. "Stiff hats���������the derby, the  straw or the silk hat���������should be laid  aside, and soft felt hats or caps  worn.  Then the scalp" must, be kept absolutely clean. Many people seem to be  afraid to wash the hair, or to brush it  vigorously, but this fear Is unfounded. The head should be shampooed  at least once a week, with soap of the  best" quality, which, should be not  strong and alkaline, but neutral. It  this makes the hair too dry, a little  olive oil can then be rubbed into the  scalp. i.  If dandruff still persists, inspite of  frequent washing, it will be well to  get advice from a physicion as to the  occasional use of an appropriate lotion in addition to the regular sliam-  H.

ADAM. WORTH IS THE THIEF  Statement  of   tlio   New   York   Police  ' in Regard to tho Long Lost  Gainsborough Picture.  New York Herald: Mystery no  longer envolops tho identity of the  man who stole the Gainsborough portrait of the Duchess et Devonshire  from tho art rooms of William Agnew  & sons, in London.  Tho police sny the man who took  the picture is Adam Worth. Time,  howevor, has outlawed the crime, and  though Worth is well known to Scotland Yard authorities and the police  of this country, he has no fear of  prosecution.  After, having 'tho famous painting  under his control for 25 years, lacking two months, Adam Worth on  March 26th, of this year, retnrnod it  to C. Morland Agnonr. Tho transfer  was mado in tho Audtorlum hotel in  Chicago, tho details being arranged  by the two principals, who dealt  through William Pinkerton und Pat  Sheody,   a  gambler.  Worth is said to be a younger son  of a family whose namo has beon  respected and honored In England for  generations.  encounter, the Spanish were introduced by Sir Lewis, Leuknor, throush  tho Parke and Privy Gallerle9 to thc  king in hia withdrawing chamber,  where they had a lowd and long expostulating audience, and I ln tho  meantlmo (aa I bad directions) received tha other ambassadors ot tha states*  at tbe court gate and conducted them  to the conncell chamber on tho-late  queen's side, they were immediately upon the Spanish, depai-ture, called to tho king's preslnco to. tho some  place, and making their, entry at tho  other end of the privy galleries, they  had a faire audience, returning (as  tho other did) by thc way of their  entrance."  But this was nothing to tho troublo  involved in disposing of ,tho ambassadors at 'a public festivity. When  the master ot ceremonies brought the  invitation, tho ambassadors, instead  of replying civilly, would ask - who  else had been invited and what places  had been allotted to them, and then  perhaps in tho end give a conditional  and grudging acceptance.  At tho marriage of tho Princess  Elizabeth with the Elector Paletlne*,  tho French and Venetian ambassadors  demanded chairs, although tbo Prince  of Wales himself was only provided  with a stool. Chairs were not in  general use at that period. Benches  and stools were thought sufficient, as  a rule, for everyone except the kings  and queens. Then the lord chamberlain ln trying to scat tho ladies,  threw tho wholo arrangements into  disorder. He ventured to ploco the  wifo of the French ambassador next  tho countee-scs, and above tho barenesses. This was the signal for disturbance. ���������  WHEN   AMBASSADORS   CLASH  The following amusing incident  is told in a coast paper:  Among the crowd proposing to  t;-.ko the water trip to Seattle was a  newly married couple. The brido, for  whom, under the i circumstances | the  public had much' sympathy, ia "'.not  described. More attention, naturally,  was given to the bridegroom; a tall,  spare young man, of thc hustling I  type, -so "common across the line," I  one who did his best not to give his '  travelling companions ", the faintest  hint that he was a bridegroom. So  effectualy did he separate from his  bride, that the latter missing him in  the crowd going - aboard, stepped  aside and quietly waited for "-.he man  whom nothing short of death was to  part from her. In the moantlmc the  fresh young husband had reached the  tipper deck, and missed his spouse.  Just as he spied her on tho wharf, to  his dismay the steamer pulled out.  To anyone who has travelled on the  Flyer, -it is -well known that her captain like time and the tides, waits for  no one, and the bridegroom had  nothing to do but shout across the  widening gulf, telling his bride to  catch the train which left half an hour  later, and at the same time he pulled  out" his half'dollar pieces and throw  "Them to'her, but alas the coins, after  alighting on the wharf, rolled along  and disappeared through a big crack  into the water below.  The feelings of the bride can be-  Better imagined than describe*!; at all  events, they have not been recorded.  The crest fallen .groom, bo*ar-"ier,  had to make a <;lean breast 'oC -t to  his male companions, and from his  tale it was evident his Nemesis* has  dogged his footsteps ever since he  started on his honeymoon, for fit a  previous halting place he hauled out  his purse, and while extracting some  change, he let a $20 gold piece drop  and as ill tick 'would have it, it also  fell through a crack in a wharf nnd  it also was lost. At another point  the"newly wedded couple discovered  their trunks and valises had gone  astray. Lome before this, it is r- ob-  alile the bride luif, bf-fTi trying to  make un her mind to "t;o it alone."  ������������������ath������r than bo attached, even as a  better half, to a "hoo-doo" of -a husband.   o   A REPORT ON-VICE      '      ,  Tho Gentleman's Magazine: One of  the chief duties of the master of the  ceremonies at tho English court In  tho 17th century was to prevent a  clash between he ambasadors of different nations. It two ambassadors  had an audience on tho somo day  tho most elaborate precautions were  taken.  It happened  once,    says    Sir John  Finnett, that "the two Spanish    am-   bassadors wore assigned an audience of military   posts  at  certain  for two of the clock, and the States land the gradual occupation  at fouri'i     when,   to    prevent    their [allies.

A New York despatch to the Montreal Gazette says:  Th*e committee of fifteen organized  some, .months ago to investigate  vice as it exists in this city, madi its  in'eliminary_^^report_-to___thc_ public  today. This report will be followed  by others from time to timj :is the  committee deems necessary.-  After reviewing the work of tho  formation of the committee agents by  investigation disclosed, tho fact that  gambling and pool rooms were bmng  operated openly in violation of' the  iaw that these rosorts were undoubt*-  edly protected by ofllcers whose duty  it was to close them. Raids were  made by the committee and its agents  and the results obtained show conclusively that a committee of citizens  can force the police to close up unch  resorts thus proving that vice is protected; also that thc raids have resulted in making thc gambling business unprofitable in this city, cither  to those directly engaged in it or to  thoso who directly derive from it a  large share of their revenue. The  committee has beeu collecting data  from different countries and intends  preparing a report embodying suggestions for thc trentment of the  social-evil in great cities. II docs  not feel that tho beht interests of the  city will bo served bv any violent attempt to suppress this evil, but it is  hoped that tho forthcoming- report  will present such Information and re-  comendations as shall enable the  community to face thc situation  frankly and to deal with it ci',:im>m a-  tivoly and wisely.
