inspection in uiu vmioua niuua
of hard surface streets in Port
land and vicinitv on Wednesday.
The entire day was devoted to
the cause, and as a result they
have familiarized themselves
with the kinds that should prove
the best for St. Johns, and are
now in a position to act intelli
gently when hard suriace im
provement is petitioned for in
St. Johns. It was a lesson in
hard surfacing that should prove
valuable. About 75 miles were
covered on the trip.
Strickland 'Gillilan at the High
School auditorium last evening
concluded the Lyceum course for
the season, and like in so many
other matters, the best was re
served until the last. Mr. Gilli
lan proved himself an entertain
er or the verv hiirhost class. A
sparkling (low of wit, droll hu
mor, bits ol pathos, homely
truths and rare gems of wisdom
kept the largo ntidicnco in a
merry mood throughout the two
hours devoted to entertaining
the and tors. No one could help
but be benefited by listening to
Mr. Gillilan. He brought his
truths home in a manner that
could not help but cause one to
rolled, although his gems were
immediately followed by ludi
crous remarks. His enunciation
was clear and distinct, and his
comical attitudes caused much
merrimont. Tho world is surely
bettor and brighter by reason of
such mun as Mr. Gillilan having
lived in it and devoting their
lime and rare talents in spread

Electricity can bo used in any quantity, large
. or small, thereby furnishing any required
amount of light. Furthermore, electric lamps
can bo located in anyplace, thus affording any
desired distribution ot light.

fore it is not surprising that electric lamps are
rapidly replacing all others in modern establishments.
