respecting man would do under the

will be interesting to note the nejft
move made by the little clique who
presume to uet for rwpeutublu Liberalism.
Vt\llA,AQE politics are always very
V/ interesting to the  villagers who
participate and intensely amusing to
l hose who look on.    Ymir provides as
much  fun  in this particular us any
other little community in the country,
Not that we have so many politicians,
lull the few wo have,  on  one side at
least, are of tho typical   village type—
that class of men  who  in  tlio winter
season  lounge  around the har»rooms
learnedly discussing the nflairs of the
nations, and in the summer spend their
valuable timu seated on tho  sidewalks
dangling their legs   to the rhythm of
the  pondrous   topics   they  propound.
The Liberal party in the  oamp is (li-
vided into two factions—tho wise and
the otherwise,   or   the dependent and
i en » i
independent!   This was fully shown ut
the recent provincial elections. Parr,
the ignominously defeated candidate,
claimed the endorsation of the Ymir
Liberal Association ; hut it transpired
that the claim was unfounded. A big
lot of the registered Liberals attended
u public meeting, and in the name of
llie Ymir Libeiul Association pledged
their allegiance to the Wright cause
denying that the association, us an
association, had endorsed Parr. For
doing so they were denounced as unwise young Libérais—at least, this is
the mild way of putting it : the term
applied is too altogether coarse and
vulgar to appear in print, and dashes
are source. We are not aware that
Ihe breach has been closed. However,
lhose claiming to be the old, original
aggregation, reorganized, and in their
I'llorts to give a tone of 'respectability
lo the uHair, induced J. W. Itoss, J,P.,
to accept the presidency. Now, Air.
Itoss is an old time, consistent Liberal
«hose consistency e.cn his political
opponents must admire. He might
have seen, however, that he was only
being made a tool of. If he hud any
doubt on the point it was rciuovcd'on
Monday evening last. The president
decided to call a meeting for tills evening for the purpose of selecting a de-
legate' to attend the convention at
Nelson to iioiniiiatc a candidate for
the forthcoming dominion elections.
Mr lioss came to this olllce, and duly
handed in the copy of the notice lo be
printed. This notice was written by
A. C, O'Neill,' secretary, und by him
dinned, The work wits, done, delivered
and paid for l>,v Mr Ross. liltt the

Oun ever welcome contemporary,
the Phoenix Pioneer, suggests the following new-year resolves. They are
iqually sugges'ive to the Ymirite us
to the Pheoniuiun,    Here they are:
Hesolyc that you^ will not be a
"knocker"-^pne who always sees some
thing to rind fault about in regard to
his home, town or district. Always
look on the bright uidu of things,
Resolve that you will say all tho
good that you can, and as little as
possible' that is otherwise, of your
neighbor or business opponent. Chicks
ens generally come home to roost,
Resolve that you will have more
charity towards all men, of high or low
degree, Charity is a quality that
nays tho highest kind of interest,
Resolve that you will not credit
every "fish" story that you hear. Judge
everything and everybody on its or
their own merits, and du nut be swayed by prejudice.
Resolve that you will be an optimist
rather than a pessimist. As a rule,
the world has little use for the latter.'
Nearly every ono has troublos enough
of his own.
Last, but not least, resolve that you
will keep your subscription to your local paper paid up, if it is worthy of
support at all, Ulessed is the man
who pays the printer and docs it
day every leap year, calling the fifth
day before the 1st of March a double
sixth. This calendar is used even now
in Russia, and was accepted everywhere until 1Ô82, when Pope Gregory
XIII. compiled the present calendar.
Caesar's mistake was in giving euch
year an average of 30Ô 1 4 days, which
is 11 minutes too much, and would
amount to 12 days by this time. Gregory overcame this difficulty by ordaining that when leap year fell in a
centurial year it should not receive its
additional day unless the year was a
multiple of 400, Thus 1G00 was a
leap year, hut 1700, 1800, and 1900
were not, so that those who are alive
in 2000 will celebrate an event which
has not occurred for four centuries.
Even the Gregorian calendar is not
perfect, for our civil year is 22 seconds
longer than the solar year. As this
only amounts ti a day in 3,860 year's

fires. Although 590 Ines «ere lost
on this occasion history tells of greater losses, but none so speedy or unexpected. The fire which occurred in
Brooklyn Theatre on Dec, û, |87<i,
has hitherto held the record for fatalities at a theatre Are, 295 being the
total number of lives that were lost.
The disaster occurred on a stormy
niglit'during the performance of "The
Two Orphans" liy Kate Claxton and
her company. For the last 18 years,
up to the end of 1902, 1522 theatre
nod opera house fires have occurred in
the United Slates with an aggregate
property loss of $10,930,150. The
fatalities are not recorded, and it is
dilli.mlt even to estimate them. A 27
years' record shows an average burning of about 02 theatres and opera
houses annually in the United Stales,
During the famous Chicago conflagration of 1^71, when the city was over
swept, 200 lives were lost. In 18Ö2,
50 people were burned ut a fire in San
Francisco. The great London, England, fire of 1GG0 cost tho lives of
about 1,000; the London bridge fire
disaster of 1212 yielded n death total
of .'1,000. The Vienna Ring theatre disaster a few years ago resulted in 500
deaths. The Bazaar fire terror in
Paris, at a more recent date, caused a
life loss of nearly 200.

And grabbing up a chair ami fan,

Wonderful    Growth   of   the   Hail   Order   Business   of   The   Robert
Company, Limited, Toronto.
Toronto ha» long been noted as the,
city of fine stores. With her miles nf
beautiful residential streets, her avenues of tress. s:>l2*nlld lalce front,
unequalled street cur service and her!
gteiit department stores, such as that
of the Robert Simpson Comoany, her
citizens no«sess advantages few other
cities can boast.
The firm, m Mr. Simpson's death,
In 1897, became a limited company,
and no modern phenomenon of the
buslneSB world, so fur as Toronto I*
conceit ed. has occasioned more remark than the growth of ihe business
of the Robert Simpson Company
Large though the building is and added to from time to time as It has lieen
The Robert .Simpson Company building stands in the most prominent position In .he city, via., the southwest
corner of Queen nnd Yoij3 Strer's.
where, situated In the vavy centre of
the city. It has long been one of tns
most familiar land-tnnrks of the town.
As a specimen of modern store architecture. It stands supreme In Canada.
It extends from Queen Street on the
north cleor through the block to Richmond Street on the south, with a long
series of magnificent front windows
on Queen, Tonge and Richmond
Streets. Counting the basement, the
store numbers seven selling floors,
each  of whloh  would  provide
Boom for a Regiments Drill
On these seven floors, In twenty'-
three distinct departments, praotlcally
everything needed Ul dally life, mov
be bought for the lowest economical
price for which a store can sell It.
Experienced enterprising "buyers
«re scouring the world nearly six
months of the year securing the most
suitable merchandise where It Is produced .best and oheapest. Quantity I:
no drawback. The bigger quantity
bought, the lower the price. If the
good« are right the Robert Simpson
Company cannot take too much of
them.      (
The buolness now known as the Robert Simpson Company Limited, was
established away back tn 187,1, by the
late Mr. Robert Simpson. An unequalled Judge of dress goods and silks, nls
store soon acquired a repirtatkn for
dress fabrics second to none in Canada, and that reputation has been one
of the store's most valued and most
carefully treasured assets ever since,
Soon Tonge Street rivalled King Street
In Its attraotlveness for the Indies of
Toronto, and when after the great fire
In IXnS. the new building was erected.
Tonge Street was indisputably mastir
