TUPAITERliifS 1MB BtiOIII6 In Communication He Advocates More Koom In City Hall Which is to be Erected. The following communication sign ed by "A Taxpayer" appeared in the Valley View this week: To the Editor of the Valley View: Dear Sir: I notice that the new city hall is to be erected on the old foundation, and the building to be modern in every respect. 1 think now is the time to build for the future and the old foundation should not stand in the way of doing the right thing now. In the past, one found that the room was not sufficient and in building now the whole of the ground owned by the city ought to be occupied. There is no use leaving several odd feet of ground lving around waste and use less when the new building should cover them. In fact anew plan should be made to cover all requirements and suitable fireproof vaults to store documents in should be provided on both floors. A necessary amount of room space for the several depart •y- ments of the city is imperative at this time and an old foundation should not be considered as having any bear ing on so important a matter. Let us have a full and complete report of some good architect on the matter and plan first and build afterwards. 4.

C0LT0NBR0S. A TALE OF THE SEA. Here Is a thrilling story .told by Capt Parkinson, one of the passeng ers on the Berlin, wrecked at the Hook of Holland a few days ago. He says: There was a grating sound, and 1 knew there was something wrong. 1 slipped on my pajamas and shirt and rushed on deck. Here were a lot ot people runnipg about and I saw some of the stewards putting on life belts for passengers. I bolted back into my cabin again, put on some' more clothes and a life belt with an overcoat on top to prevent its being washed oft. I went up on the bridge to see If 1 could help Capt Precious and I said to him: 'Is there any chance of us getting off?' He said 'I hope so wefre going full steam astern to try and 'back clear off.' We went astern about twenty feet and then slewed round. When Capt Precious saw this he gave the order, Stop her/ But almost at the same moment the engineer rushed on deck, saying that the engine room was flooded and he had to escape, leav ing the engines still going fulf speed astern. We oould see then that the ship was doomed: Then the captain, the pilot and myself went down to the next bridge. I never saw either ot them after that they must have been washed overboard. The waves were running mountain high at this time. "I went along with the rest of the passengers and stood behind the deck house on the port side till the after part of the ship came in two, and the sea poured all over us. God knows how long we stopped there like this. The weather was terrible there was no fog or snow, but the wind was bitterly cold, and I never saw big ger rollers. Women and children, half-dressed, were huddled up by the side of the deckhouse, drenched to their skins and moaning and crying plteously. The childen soon* died. I did my best to save one child. The young mother, in an almost uncon scious condition, had put the child on a seat Numbed with the cold, it fell off and I helped them up to a man in a more protected position. Death came to the child a few minutes after ward, the mother holding its hand as it passed away. There was no panic, and the crew met their end bravely. The passengers stood there together calmly awaiting their fate. Suddenly we started to settle down forward. 1 sang out: 'We'd all better get aft. It's most likely that the forward will slide Into deep water.' I myself start ed to go aft one poor woman cling ing to my arm. She was still brave. "We had only a few paces when a tremendous sea struck us. There was a fearful crashing noise and the whole hull seemed as if it was being rent and spilt and the funnel went over. I was swept into the sea, strinking the chain as I went down. When 1 came up I struck out away from the ship, and looked round for wreckage. It was terribly cold and I thought it was all over. Soon I was buipped up against a big piece of wood, and, hold ing this, paddled about, half-blinded 'by the sea. My legs were completely numbed and I felt every moment as it I should have to let go. I remember seeing Mr. Holden of Bolton trying to escape through a porthole. I shouted to him, 'Good-by,' and I saw him no more. I was almost done when I heard some shouting, and, turning my head, I saw the lifeboat They bore down on me and hooked me in." A great many years ago there were a book of Tennyson's poems, a bible, Milton's "Paradise Lost" and reading matter of a similar nature on every parlor table. Bver see them now? How many do you know who have a copy of "Paradise Lost?" Do you personally know of any one whose word is good who has read it within the last twenty years? It looks as though every man in the country is aching for a row, and for hard-times. The oountry was never before as prosperous as it is now, but did you ever before remark as much dissatisfaction as seems to exist now? And nearly every man who is dlsaatMed is also unreason able.

In England as Well as in America to Stamp Ont the Dreadful Disease. "War to the knife", against tuber culosis in cattle as well as humans is being waged in England as it is In America. An English bacteriologist in a letter to the London Times under the above heading says among other things: "We find that in the six years which have elapsed, whilst the fact that the Boyai Commission was at work has rendered sanitary authorities very unwilling to take any decided step un til its report was forthcoming, much progress has been made and In the samples ot milk submitted to me by the various authorities for examina tion I have found a steadily dimin ishing proportion of tubercular spe cimens, whilst there has been a cor responding diminution In the Infantile deathrate from tubercular disease, an other strong inferential proof that the two are connected. "Many dairymen now refuse to buy cows without a tuberculin test, and th#re is no real nor serious difficulty in ensuring that this should be done in every case.
