We trust that the denito to see something In the address line entirely Dew and bearing the stamp f m ina will ho in vreat that the shower of "tes timonials" will swamp our boy. Don't be afraid, Uio of so sad a catastrophe-be cun stand lt New Trar's. Aeenrriimr to our custom ou previous years we will publish, if the ladles will send us their names and arrangeirrtts, a full list of those who intend to receive caHs on New Years aay, one week from to-day. Such a list will be very con veni-nt for the irttftlcraen.as It will enable tuein to mukc up a repslar route for the day and not be compelled to run around bunting up the in dies. As the Pk.ee Tiudek Is published next week on New Year's day, It will be especially valuable for Mils purpose, us being fresh and not likely to be lost before the time comes to use the list. We aJrosdy have a number .of names, and will be tleaei to receive the rest. They may be left at lite fcaokstore, or with "ye local" who, though 'bashful young man, Is werertbeless nuite willtejr to bo interviewed by Uw ladies on this suUje.'t. Calling C&TiIh.

About thlrty-Bve years ago there lived in the then somewhat sparsely settled region of Taze well couuty, Illinois, a well-favored, active, healihy yoiii. umn named James lucner. in the mine vicinity lived a comely lass of the nai.ie of Elisabeth Kline. The twn " met by chance, the usuul way," and from u slight ac quuintance grew lutimate, then loved, and were married. They lived together Happily, as me world goes, for five or six years, but business was dull, times were Laid, and Mr. I ucner sigu- ed for new fields of enterprise where lortune was less niggard of her favors. , About this time golden rumor camu noaung ou the bree.os from far otf Culiforaia, ana ir.

But febstueles ouly stimulate true enterprise, ana Jir Tucker set about preparation for the journey with gle. It was arranged that be should go alone, leaving Mrs. Tucker in charge of the cabin mid "trans" at home until he 6hould find his bonanza and thus the means to convey her to hisucw home in the land of gold. . Aud so Mr. Tucker departed ou his long, wea- tf journey across the plains, leaving Kliubeth to her lonely vigil for his return at tho solitary aliiH window in Tazewell county. It h needless to recount the incidents mid tiiuls oJ' Unit train. coutiiieutul tup. I imusa.'ius hi uU'.-r ui.iuo a m ls4!, '50 and '51, Qi.d all told tl.u same story of perils aud privatious.

It seeing they had skated on the canal iroru Ltica, in tending to come to Ottawa, hut when they reached Lock 12, it being then between 3 and 3 o'clock, they concluded to go no further and turned buck. About 300 yards below the X.ock a "run" empties with quite a strong current into the canal, aud this running water under the Ice and the growing warmer weaiher above, made the ice there quite rotten and unsafe. The yoang men, lu starting back, unfortunately -did not at tempt to avoid this dangerous place, and one being some little distance in advance of the other broke through: the other seeing his friend go down, by a sharp turn, avoided the same ac cident He immediately attempted to rescue bit. friend, who had been trying to get out, but, as the ice kent breaking under him, wus unable to do so. The other in making the attempt also broke through the lee, and by hard work could nnlv keen bis head above watr. Their cries for help brought Mrs. Tho. Gavin, the wife of the loi k-tfuder, to the scene with a long pole, whinb she handed to the second man in, and drew Llm out. His friend, the flrst man who got in, was by this time exhausted with, hi etrugglcs, but h;td managed to find a strong spot in the lee and was hanging on with bis fingers, being 60 used u that he could not draw himself out. The ihjIc was then handed to him, and be, too, wa drawn out. Mrs. C. then tok them to the lock house and kept them there till they were fully restored, aud their clothes were dry, when they again started for home. A diary with a bunch of keys and other small articles belonging to mm of the nartv were left as the lo k house where the owner em get thorn. Toys of all kinds in endles quantities, tt H'al'hcr's.

It Is not our purpose to discuss tho school ques tion, but we mean now to say a few words of congratulation to our citizens on the dully bet tering condition of our public schools, and in the future may suggest, if necessary, some Im provements. It has long been a great want ct thla country to have better schools schools where the young men and women can prepare for college and build a foundation for higher and better schol arship. It is customary for European teachers o decry the scholarship of American Instructor id American schools, and In a measure the arj;e of superficiality is just, for everal rea ch , 601) s.

It enable student to enter college now without the extra "cramming" of a year or two, and makes the prospect of a university education so much more encouraging to our youth, that its great benefit will eventu ally be felt In our own community, and through the country round, for our high-school, if lteon tinues to increase in userulness, will attract many students rrom lneaiities wbcrejsut h school are Impossible. During the tmn jii't past the work of the school generally has been eminently satisfactory more especially in the high school, where the examinations jut ended reflect great credit on i both pupil aud teachers. One class, the first in Analysis, was not examined owing to the fact that the examiner concluded that the best cri terion of scholarship ltb: clasc-standingof the pupils during the term and month past, and on such funding will decide their merits. There are now about 13-" pupils in the high school more than ever was known in the his. lory of the school, and the only difficulty Is how to accommodate the crowd to come in next June.
