(Vth, a guest at the Leth bridge Hotel, a lady, developed small pox. She was taken to the lsola tion Hospital along with four othc persons who had been exposed to he the hotel was quarantined nnd all Inmates vaccinated, und then re leased; the building was then washed from top to bottom with an antiseptic solution, und afterwards fumigated with formaldehyde for 21 hours, all under my personal supervision. It is to be hoped that these measures will prove offcctual, but it is yet too eurly to l*> sure. During tho year an Isolation Hospital was built and Immediately on its completion It was needed. At present there are in it n scarlet fever case, a small pox case, besides an elderly lady In charge and her bon who assists her, I propose, also, to Secure, if possible, a trained nurse, to do the actual nursing, giving her a free home there, all the year around, wages when nursing, und liberty to do other work when not required there. The building has several defeats but as I have not yet decided as to the best way to remedy them 1 ".ill not go into details at present. 1 would like, however, to usk lor an electr c liglvt connection, as soon as practicable, und for a telephone, the former for the convenience of the inmates and the latter more for the con venience of tho Health Officer. l*a-tients who arc there, have 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, nnd, consequently, the Health Officer has to keep calling around every day or two, to uct us errand boy, when he could do the business just as well by telephone. On my trips down there during tho windy weather I lnnc noticed n great deul of paper from tho nuisance ground being borne by thi> wind past the Isolation Hospital, and up towards and, no doubt, into the city. I beg to suggest that this could be remedied at no great cost, by build ing n sort of corral for the paper, of chicken v ire on posts, closed on the north, south and east sides und on top, into which all the paper . ould be put and burned at intervals.

C, Doc. 7.-Away bnck in 1852 James Sivewright nt-' tainnd tho ngc of 21 years, and like many young men, on attaining his majority, he loft the old home, parents nnd friends, took passage on a ship, and struck out-determined to win for himself a livelihood and fortune in the golden western land beyond tho sea, Aftor bidding his Scotland home farewell ho sailed direct for New York, where for six years he worked as a mechanic. But life in the groat city was too much ike the old homo, too slow for an ambitious man who aspired to higher things than working for other people, and he decided to plunge into the far west, whence glowing tales had reached his cars of vast possibilities for tho man with grit and determination. He had both, and in June, 1858, he crossed the Isthmus of Panama, and up the coast to San Francisco, then a trading post. After a few weeks in the California town he embarked on board a vessel bound for Victoria, arriving there in the month of September the same year. The season being late, he decided to winter in Victoria. During the winter he hunted over the island and on the mainland. He is positive he killed deer that winter on the very ground where now stands the great city of Vancouver. In February following his coming to this province he, in company with others, followed the Fraser river up to Lytton, and for two years devoted his attention to mining between that place and Lillooct. The talea of the great Cariboo appealed to him, and thither he found his way, and for forty-five years he has followed min ing in that country with varied success. A stage from Cariboo a few days ago brought the sturdy Scotch pioneer on his way back to his old country home, where he will spend the remainder of his lite. Although 76 years of age, Mr. Sivewright ia well preserved, as men who live the simple life usually are. On reaching Ashcroft he saw electric light for the first time, and a passing freight wa., 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 nutive land. He has borne an excellent reputation all his years in the north, nnd while his many friends will miss him they wish him many years of a peaceful life among his friends and relatives "back home." 4, fcEJOLVED THATTMeOt/ER IS JUDGED BY HIS GIFT. )Y0U MAKE OTHERS HAPPV LWH YoOft GIFTS" AND BRING WTO* |Yoi/R5�LF.

(Raymond Rustler.) It may be of interest to many of our readers to know what it means to have a sugar factory here. H 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 that there have been received at the factory up to the present 1(5,500 tons of beets. Just think of it "Sixteen thousand live hundred tons." It looks more when you spoil it out The factory will probably run until the 20th. Out of this year's output already over one million pounds of sugur have been shipped out to advertise Raymond and waft sweetness abroad all over the province. Former Page Now Candidate Fort.

The plaintiff, in March last, was a guest at tho Royal Hotel, and while at the hotel left a fur overcoat in the cloak room. Later, when lie came to get his coat, he found that it had disappeared. Efforts were made to find the coat, but without avail. Tompkins brought action against the hotel for the values of the coat. The hotel denied their liability. His lordship Judge Harvey, in giving hjs judgment, laid down the principle that an innkeeper is responsible fur the goods left in the hotel by guests unless they are ablu to establish that the guest was guilty of negligence. Such proof of negligence entirely failed in the present ease, and judgment was given for thn plaintiff for the full amount sued for, $100. (Nanton News.)
