Another storey is to be added and the entire appearance of this well known corner changed. The front on Round st. is to he entirely new. Large plate glass windows with mireseno glass above, to throw irleidy of light in the store, will replace the present windows, both on the Round st side and for 18 feet on Redpath st. Then 57 feet back from the entrance a ten foot show window will be put in. It will face Redpath si., at the very rear of the store. Thi- entrance at the corner will be vastly improved and will be one of the attractive features of the building. The brick wall at present dividing the grocery and dry goods departments will be reino\(.:d and replaced by iron columns supporting the ceiling and floor above. Tliis will be a vast improvement, virtiially putting all departments into the view of every customer. The new storey will be 1-1 feet high and will be used for offices.

H li \i ver V .r. �. It is the same old story over and over again. Whenever a man with a steam beer salary becomes the victim of a champagne appetite, the ultimate result is not diilicLilt to forecast. We do not know what diversions Mr Matlu'son had, but unfortunately for himself and infinitely more so for tliose whose confidence he had gained, he had an insutfiei. nt aninunt of money of his own. To snppi\ the dei'' iency he stole the money iilacei! in his care. In doing so Mr, Mat'he-son was a fool as well as a Ivnave. otherwise he woukl have reas(jue.i from a long line of precedent^ and easily arrived at the eoncltision that the chfinces for e^eajK^ were overwhelmingly against liim. His reasoningshuulil have taught him that looking out "from prisons all over Canada weic other mtMi who had used other ]jeo])le't3 money in purchasing unnecessary hixurie'S which would have been as unattainable as they were unnecessary had the young men given due respect to the law of mine and thine. There are, not infrequently,extenuating circumstances whicli offer some excuse for a man stealing. An uninterinipted periotl of hard luck and with children crying for the bare necessities of lifc^ may I drive a man to desperation and ! cause him to steal. Subscribe for the Herald. J.
