All wag ag calm as a frozen mill-pond. I have wen telling Dad that they did a very 'oolish thing when they decided to pay old Michael's board bill. Old Mike was deserted by his relations who should have taken care of him in his old age and was left stranded in the city. A generous hearted hotel keeper' kept him for several weeks and then asked the city to foot the bill and to put up the necessary to send the old man away. The city fathers made up their minds to sendj him to the Devil 's Lake where; he belonged and did so, but were a little dubious about paying the old man's board when they had not au thorized the hoteikeeper to keep him at their expense. The city solicitor said that they were under no obliga- tion to do so but they did it just the same. Following Michael's case any fellow that is busied can get some one to keep him and the city will have 'to whack up for his keep when the bill comes in. The city will be kept busy paying for other people's generosity. Aid. Watson has a great faculty of sticking to a thing until he gets it. He has been hammering away for weeks trying to get the city to fix up that awful mudhole near the round house and finzilly last meeting an rder was given to have it done at nee. The C. P.

Some of the hats were smashed and a lot of women thought it made a good chance to get their hats without waiting any longer and everybody went-into the scrim- mage.

It seems that after a coupon had been exchanged for a hat it was put the women if they were given hats on 1 the counter went over this box went, BLACK SPRING VALLEY Black Spring Valley, June weather is fine.

So The Council have evidently got the idea that the gaswell is not going to give the city light or put it into a position to buy out the electric plant before the next dark night conies and accordingly have ordered the instal- lation of. a few more street lights. They have come to the conclusion that the people are tireti striking matches to see the crossings and of bunting into one another on a dark night. It is no fun and it is a good job for the city that an increasing number of the aldermen are living on the dark streets.

And the management fondly expected 'that the women would wait which was miscalculation No. 2. During the last intermission, just before the Maxim's scene, a number of women decided they preferred to land during the remainder of the how. These filled up the space be- hind the seats. And then one or two of tho.se happened 'to think they Iwd to 'get home early and presented their coupons. Manager Douglas and his corps of L ushers and girls behind the counter wanted to please and gave out one or two hats, and the other women who were standing near happened to think they, too, had to get home early. More hats were given out, and then those down in front noticed that the others were getting hats and started to get this long before the cur- tain fell.
