For Half a Cantruy Ha Lived in Wildt and Never Saw a Locomotive. ing, I am aorry that I cannot, this year as last, congratulate you on the excellent showing made by the city. Last year I reported a total ot 22 cases of contagious and infectious dis eases; this year the total is 92. IaM year, tho cases were scattered; thia year, we have particularly had three epiclem cs. In Fcbruai-y and March, and again in Augtist measles were prevalent; in May and June, practically alt the cases of small pox occurred; and in the tall months more particularly Septomlwr and October, there was a large nuniljer of cases of typhoid fever, 44 in all. This was of a aevcre type, many of the caaes beiBg seriously ill and five of them dying. No satLsfactory explanation, to its origin, vas obtained, many samples of water and milk wfere sent away tor examination, all ot v^hich wer� reported free of typhoid bacciUi. One sample was reported infected with colon baccilli, but these do not themselves, cause typhoid. In this connection, it is a ccttain amount of satisfaction to know that at any rate, we did not pa.ss the infection on to our neighbors.' I took a aample ot water from the river, bout ten feet diroctl.v below the mouth of the aewer, and it was reported tree from typhoid germs. The list of contagious and infectious diseases, and the numlicr of cases of each, up to Dec. 1st, is as follows:-Tut>ercnlosis 1, measles 23, Diphtheria 3, Typhoid Fever 44, ciii-ckenpox 18, Scarlet fever 3, Tho tuberculoir case dietl, as did five typhoids, as already stated, no others. On Dec. 6th, a guest at the Lcthbridge Hotel, a lady, developed small pox. She was taken to the Isolation Hospital along with four other persons who had been exposed to her the hotel was quarantined and all inmates vaccinated, and then released; the building was then washed from top to bottom with an antiseptic solution, and afterwards fumigated with formaldehyde for 24 hours, all under my personal supervision. It is to be hoped that these measures will prove effectual, but it is yet too early to be sure. During the year an Isolation Hospital was built and immediately on its compkftion it was needed. At present there aiv in it a scarlet fevcr case, A small pox case, besides nn elderly lady in charge ftnd her son who aaaists her, 1 propose, also, to figure, if pdssiblo, a trained nurse, to do the actual nursing, giving her a free home thew, all the year around, wages when nursing, and liberty to do other work when not required there. The building bus several defects but as I have not yet decided aa to the best way to remedy them I '-.''.It not go into details at present. I would like, however, to ask tor an electr c liglit connection, as soon as praoticablc, and for a telephone, the former for the convenience ot the inmates and tho latter more for the con venienoe ot tho Health Ofhcer. Patients who are there, havc to remain in isolation for a considerable time, after all need of medical attention is over. Still, none of the inmates can can come to town for anything they may require, and, consequently, tho Health Officer has to keep calling around every day or two, to act as errand boy, when ho could do the business ju�t as well by telephone. On my trips dcjwn there during tho windy weather 1 hu\e noticed a great deal of paper from the nuisance ground being borne by tho wind post the Lsolation llospiliil, and up towards and, no doulrt, into the city. 1 beg to siiKROst tluit this could b? remedied at no Kieat cost, by building a soit of corral for tlie paper, of chicken v ire on pests, closed on Uic north, south and eu.st sides and on top, into which all the paper ,i�ul.l be put and burned at intervai.�!. I heg to congratulate you mi tlie Health Bylaw which you passed during the year. It i.s a distinct n,.i vantage, if well enforood will i ater ially promote the good health . the first railroad train he had seen in over fifty years. He left Ashcroft a few days since on an east-bound train, and will connect with 'a fast Atlantic liner at St. John for his native land.

TWO NOSES ON ONE CHILD. Peculiar Patient, One Year Old. Waa Brought to Hospital for Treatment. Toronto, Dec. 16.-One of the most curious patients that has ever been brought to the General Hospital was ehtcred a few days ago, a child of one year old. It had a double cleft palate and two noses. The latter were stubby, and an inch apart, but each performed its function properly. The little one was brought in by its mother in an effort to remedy these strange malformations which were its birthright. An operation was performed for the purpose of bringing the two palates together, and the child was then tak enaway. Tlie treatment will probably be continued. HARVEST IN BRITAIN.

It may be of interest to many of our readers to know what it means to have u sugar factory here. It means that last month they paid out over $70,000 and that this month the pay roll will exceed $80,000. Remember that this money is paid out locally and for the greater part remains in circulation right here. It means tlmt there have been received at the factory up to the present IS,500 tons of beets. Just think of it "Sixteen thousand five hundred tons." It looks more when you spell it out. The factory will probably run until the 20th. Out of this year's output olieady over one million pounds of sugar have been shipped out to advertise Raymond and waft sweetness abroad all over the province. ling public. The plaintiff, in March last, yr&s a guest at the Royal Hotel, and while at the hotel left a fur overcoat in the cloak room. Later, when he came to get his coat, he found that it had disappeared. �! forts were made to find the coat, but without avail. Tompkins brought action against the hotel for the value of the coat. The hotel denied their liability. His lordship Judge Harvey, in giving lys judgment, laid down the principle that an innkeeper is responsible for the goods left in the hotel by guests unless they are able to establish that the guest was guilty of negligence. Such proof of negligence entirely failed in the present case, and judgment was given for the plaintiff for the full amoiint sued for, $109. HOTELS ARE RESPONSIBLE.
