Tho Clty Councll of Manchester will be

Thero Is llttlo probablllty that there will

of the commlttees, a. no electlon has

Councilman Wakefleld may send ln hls

For soveral months he has boen In Phll
odolphia on business as ln.pector for the
_outhorn Railway, nnd accordlngly has
not beou ablo to attend to hls councll

Mr. Ronms Is a constant nttondnnt upon

Will probably bo succeeded by Councllmnn
Bradley, nnother prlmo worker In tha

Mr. Putrnm will, ln all probablllty, con?

tPo, in whlch positlon he hns done falth
ful servlce, ns has Mr. Owen, chalrman of

A couple of young Canadlans had an

days bofore help camo, durlng whlch
tlnio they had nothlng to cat but a couple
of pncknges of Grapo-Nuts.
In telli'ng tho story, ono of them says;
"Thero was qulte a party of us, nnd wo
prepared to spend a Jolly tlme huntlng
In Muskoka. I provlsloned the party and
among other suppllos lald ln a Btock of
Grape-Nuts food, of whlch I nm very
fond.
"Ono day we left camp to paddlo to tho
nearest steamer landlng, twolvo mlles
away. Just as wo pushed' off, one of our
companlons threw lnto the canoe two
packugas of Grape-Nuts and a can of
condonsod mllk, saylng, 'Leave theso nt
Verno's wlth our-compllments; they woro
wishlng they hud somo yesterday.' AVo
hnd gone about half Ihe dlstance when it
began to blow, tho Lako becoming vory
rough; so wo turned our frnll boat toward
n small lslnnd nnd pnddled wlth all our
mlght |o gnln thls sheltor. Heavy rain
began to fnll and wn drove the boat
nshore wlth moro haste thnn cautlon, nnd
In ilolng so struck a suukon log and tore
a lnrgo hole in tho llght canoe. We
srrnmbled ashoro nnd hauled tho bont
up after us, and a nlce pllght we were In.
"Wo wero on a small Island of about a
nunrtor of an ncro, and out ot the track of
stea.ners; a holo a foot long In our bont,
wlth noithor tools nor materlals to ropalr
It; no nhelter except some blg trees nnd
our canoo, nnd no food except the Grape
Nuts nnd mllk,
"Por four long, dreary days wo walted
and hoped for help, and flnally our friends
missed us niul orgnnlzoil a search pnrty,
and found us on the bare llttio lslnnd.
"As wo luid n'o flshlng tackle wo qauld
not flsh, und not havlng a flro wo ouhi
not cook. But wo had threo nieals u dny

when ros.iucd wo were nono tho worso
for our oxporlenco. Tlmnlis to the Ornpe
