Second Lieutenant F.crnhard Koch
There has been for several weeks
past a lively canvass among the n:em
bers of the company' by friends of
several candidates for the three of
tices to be filled, but when it came to
a vote, which is done bv secret ballot
and without nominations being made
there was a practical unanimity ii
the choice. On the vote for captain
out of :t:t ballots all were for .Mr.
Hanson, with the exception of two for
Mr. Hear and one for (!. V. McCask-
rin. Mnj. W. T. Channon presided
over the election.

A child of Mrs. (ieorge T. Henson,
when getting his usual Sunday niht
bath, stepped back against a hot
stove which burned him severely.
The child was in great agony and his
mother could tlo nothing to pacify
him. Hemembcring that she had a
bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Halm in
the house, she thought she would try
it. In less than half an hour after
applying it the child was quiet and
asleep, and in less than two weeks
was well. Mrs. Benson is a well

their consideration. A Xews-Tribune
representative called upon one of the
principal manufacturers of the arti

mous to ascertain the accuracy of
the rumor. The gentleman state;l
that the rumor was entirely true, and
that he had the written proposition

that the proposition called for a

the merger. This he understood had

Tremier Hal four, replying to the toast
"His Majesty's Ministers," referred to
the "splendid services tendered by the
colonies during the South African
war," which showed, he said, that they
were not mere sleeping partners In
the imperial firm. An unanswered
question, however, was whether the
war would be followed by a not less
successful p:'sice. The premier said he

spirit, as evvi y source of wealth there
was practically dried up.
