The play wag the "Flirting which, as every- one fortunale enough to be present will agree, was particularly conducive to a happy frame or mind.

I awoke with a shiver of apprehension, gave one.wild glance around me, and duck- ed my head under the all in vairi. The death knell stili haunted me. At last 1 gave up iu despair, 'and in H fit of desperation, bordering- upon delirium I flung off the bed clothes, rushed to the window, clcsed it and started dressing, casting .jneanwhile, fervid anathemas upon the author of my dls- How much better" if. instead of this barbarous sound, reminiscent-of. tho dark ages, a beautiful peal of bells were to salute the ear of tbe sleeper, awakening him to a better worl-d, con- juring up noble thoughts, ami lifting his soul above the. sordid cares of earth, above the slush and mire of life, unto realms of happiness and peace. How much better would it be to have the message of the the message of joy, of hope, contained in their- sweet and pi-aim ive note, sent into the .homes of the sick, the lonely, the sorrowing, dispelling the misis of darkness and desnair, and bringing some modicum oi' some ray of sunshine, brightening the existence of the sick ami wounded'in life's battle. Then again, when the lucky bride- groom takes unto himself -a timid, blushing bride, what better message than -thai of- the bells'.to speed the joyous couple down the vale. Up to 'the present there Is not one city in tbe west in fortunate posses- sion a set of bells, and it is given to Lethbridge to place herself in a nninuo position in; this respect it she cares to avail herself of tho oppor- tunity.
