It is'for the people to form their opinion of what an alderman ought to be, and then search out the three men who most nearly come "up to that standard. SALE OUR POINT OF VIEW The member for Athabasca says h oas no sympathy for President Clarke of the A. G. AY. .Wno has? The A. G. W. promoters say thej are going to fight -the case. That s more than they did before. There was no need of it- .They had things all-their own After the hot election fight in Drum mond-Arthabasca, Monsieur Gilbert must have caught ah awful chill in Jie frosty atmosphere of '.-tie House of Commons.

Some Qualifications things as theyhave always -been done. Originality and initiative are qualifi- cations required in any pubic, body. New blood, with freshness and vigor is of ten'better'than old blood.- with richness, and regularity. Doubt is generally expressed as to the wisdom of having a council composed entirely of men, .but doubt is just as gen- erally .expressed a to. the wisdom of having a council composed of'former members.

GENTLE ART OF SNORING On a sleeping- car between 'Colum- bia and Atlanta jiqt long ago'the com- 9 'iort of the passengers was greatly dis- turbed "by the singular manner of snor- subse- ing of a citizen, who, it quently discovered, was a foreigner. that emanated from the .terior of the gentleman's -berth is in- describable. -It bore some resemblance to' the: struggles of a half-grown Shan- ghai rooster learning to crow; .it was more squeak than roar, but the paiiiful part" or it was its'irregular, and ejacu- Jatory characteristic. Sometimes the man would be silent for two minutes and then two or three little spurts and romance of a well-disciplined snorer and be lulled to slumber'by it as much as an .innocent, -babe is lulled by the monotone of a doting mother's hush- a-by cadences. From this "the thought emerges that persons wno must snore should be taught to snore properly. Schools o! institutions in snoring should' be sol up, so that the disorderly and rule-i breaking snorer would be eliminated irom good society. "Snoring is an ab- normal and noisy mode of respiration produced by deep inspirations and ex- berth in a period of fifteen seconds. Thus, after a time, half the car was in condition of nervous excitement Curing the snoring habit is well nigh impossible, or.at least one seldom Hears jof a genuine cure. The truth is that a systematic and normal snorer is not a nuisance. -One may accus- tom Himself to the snoring of a fel- low passenger in a car, no matter how oud and stentorions- it be. if only it be rythmic and steady. aare say, .that if one put aside preju- dice he may actually enjoy the pcr- never taken the trouble to polish .the irregularities of his constitutional in- rirmity. Once, in a hotel at Saluda, S. C, we were in the company of" distinguish ed South Carolina politicians. The inn was a small arid delicately con- structed frame.-structure, and it 'was necessary to put -four statesmen in each room, and, nere and there; besides. One of the statesmen, who was a1 considerate gen- tleman insisted that he should sfee'p in the hall, saying that his mouth, the- noise being caused by .the slumber in the room with him Wheii vibrations of the soft palate and uv-jail iiad retired the gentleman's roars proceeded from- the hall as and the whole house from roof to eel- It stands to reason that the op- erations and the .uv- ula could be trained into decent har- mony. Doubtless, both are tractable, and it is altogether likely that the un- conventional and therefore despicable snorer could be converted into a sound producer akin to a pipe organ in the matter of regularity at, least, though lie might not he made-strictly musical.
