Had a watcher been concealed in the library he might well have un- derstood the motives of Mr. Roderick Fitzgeorge, or Mr. Jack Bibbs, for both names, among many others, chanced to appertain to the same at- tractive gentleman. No sooner had the door" of the billiard room been tlosed when another form rose stealthily above the library window sill, stepped noiselessly inside, crossed the room and dropped on his knees before Mr. Renwyck's safe. The man was of medium height and slender build, wearing a mask over, the upper portion of his face. But his chin and Jaw appeared beneath the band of black, showing a pale, putty-like com- plexion. In his work upon the safe this sec- ond nocturnal visitor did not resort to force or violence. He was far too old a hand to use such primitive, means, nor did he wish to arouse the house- hold by any sudden noise. He press- ed a practiced ear against the iron safe door, then turned the dial slow- ly with a featber touch till at last he was rewarded by a faint metallic click as the delicate tumbler dropped Into its slot. By the aid of his elec- tric flash lamp he made a mental note of the number, Indicating his starting point. Then he replaced his ear and reversed the- dial as carefully as before. Again be heard the warn- ing click. "Left to sixty, right to he murmured to himself and bent to his work once more. He tried four numbers, that being the usual combination of smaller safes, then confidently turned the dial to the right He scored a blank. The work must now. be done again, though not from the beginning, for three at least of the numbers were known to him. Twice more he tried and failed both times, but at the third attempt the dial locked and the outer door swung open when the nickel plated handle was softly turned. The rest was simple. The burglar produced a buiTeh skeleton keys and m less than two minutes bad forced the lock of tin1 inaer which opened with a of to the pilferer. At the council meeting Monday night the Sanitary Inspector present- ed the following report: 1 herewith bey to submit my report for the month ending May 31st, I have fumigated over one hundred and sixty rooms and am pleased to say that the epidemic is at last dying out. There have been fifty nuisanc- es abated, most of them in response to verbal intimation, but in twelve cases the persons responsible received written notice. Owing to the heavy ruins and the bad roads the scavengers were some- what handicapped this' month and the number of loads of garbage and refuse removed was 116 instead of 150 or thereabouts as it otherwise would have been. I have written to the principal ho- tels, restaurants, and busines houses with reference to the cleaning up of backyards and lanes and there is a decided improvement in this direc- tion. 1 am also insisting on the pro- visit IQ of the approved pattern garb- age cans at restaurants and boarding houses and as these will in most cases be emptied twice a day the nuisance arising from wooden barrels etc., will be avoided. The system uf garbage and refuse is improving too, s'> that 1 am hoping to be able to report very soon a much better state of affairs than exists at present. A-slu-s are not-included in the Con- tract scavenging and consequently there are a great many accumulations in different parts of the city. If, in- stead of requiring the people ro re- move these to the nuisance ground, the city would go to the expense of cartage, I thing they c-'-uld be used to very great advantage in filling up the nuuKTuus nnidholes in the lanes and alleys. .The lane running between Round and Smith Streets and from Baroness Road to Redpnth Street es- pecially require? something of the kind done. 1 have also to report a serious nui- sance at the Isolation Hospital aris- ing from the overflowing of the cess- pool. The only way to abate this is to carry an overflow pipe down into the coulee. In conversation with Mr. Arnold, the City Engineer, with reference to this, I ascertained that such a pipe four inches in diameter could be laid at a cost not exceeding fifty cents per foot, and I strongly recommend that this be done without delay. TORONTO PASTOR'S ANIMAL SERMONS (Toronto News) Rev. J. D. Morrow, of St. Mark's Presbyterian Church, at the corner of King and Tecumseh streets, is no- thing if not original. Though he de- votes much attention to the better side.of athletics, he does not confine himself to this alone, and for the past few Sundays has been series of animal sermons.for the chil- dren. He has taken a live snake in- to the pulpit and drew from it many lessons. Recently he borrowed- an eagle. At the close of the service he turned to his audience of little folks, and asked the question: "Now, little girls and boys, what shall I preach on next There was a slight pause, and then the inevitable small boy made his presence felt, and the voice was heard to say: "Please mister, will you preach on the His request had hardly been uttered when another lad chirped; "Tell us about the elephant."

ONE THAT PLEASES ALL Although there were other big At- tractions in the city last evening it is gratifying to know that the man- agement of the Eureka compelled to run three performances in order to accommodate the crowd. Of all Vaudeville programs that have ever bs.-en presented in our city, never be- fore has there been one that so thoroughly pleases the theatregoers of Lethbridge as the one that is be- ing presented at the Eureka this wei'k. It is refined, high class and clean cut, consisting of good music, good singing and good dancing. Mark and Laura. Davis, in ''Hans the Grocery is s' metjhting grand. The electrical effects and stage settings being beautiful. Laura's sweet- singing and Mark's yodling, holds the audience spell bound. Stevens arid. Washburn, those two dancers, are wonderful. The clever patter of their feet is marvellous and too much cannot be said of their ex- tremely neat dancing. The pictures are Al and the program this week is a credit to any theatre.
