There is a-politician a mighty wise for you. If he distributes the money of the province as cannily as that, the chances of the opposition getting back to power are mighty slim.

"Montreal which" ousrht reason of its .position its natural advan- tages to be thr mofi picturesque, most hygeinic, most ra ;tary and best governed city in the Dominion, today enjoys the unenviable reputation of being one of the worst-governed cities on the whole American continent" he affirmed. j, And he quoted the opinion of Lord Templeton on this point. The latter, he said, had been in Montreal twenty-five yearns ago, and since then had been around the world several times in service with his regiment. Last May Lord Templeton had asked him. to accompany him on a visit to Montreal, and when he asked the peer for his-impression of the Mon- treal of todayJv Lord Templetoa re- plied-: "I declare to you that Montre- al, perhaps the. most healthy town, best situated' from a sani- tary point of view, on the whole con- is, "after Pekin, the capital of- China, the worst town I have ever seen from a municipal point of view." a cold hard morsel for the to SIR allow but by giving it the. people boldly and honestly, Lemieux showed that he was an- xious -tboarouse his fellow citizens to the awful'" condition of -affairs and reputation the, city has. created in the'outside world.- It is to be hoped the telling of ihe truth' will make Montreal free. The Judge Cannon, who presided over the MontreaJ. Civic Inquiry, has to read a million and a half words of evidence, but -one little word "Guilty" must be uppermost in his mind even now. Keep away from the ward system.' It has been the curse of Montreal. Lathbridge ican't adopt the com- jnissiou form of government too soon. Harriman has been dead a week and the world still moves.

Seemingly the Peck boys had taken their pony an3 driven to this lake, and while on the way out the pony became frightened and ran away with the boys, tipping, the buggy over, and throwing the boys out. The boy man- aged, however, to hold to the lines and the pony did riot get away. Af- ter the the other boys went to find some game, leaving little Clarence to tie his pony. After doing this Clarence went to the bug- gy to get his rifle, finding; the stock broken, threw it under-'the buggy and proceeded to hunt, with the rest of the gun.
