THE PREMIER INVITED. A meeting of subscribers was held on Monday night, in the council] chambers, to consider matters per taining" to the above. The Mayor (Aid.

Robertson, part of which had been paid. The full claim for the contract was £70. The Mayor pointed out that the original cantract was £65, and, for his part, he considered Mr. - Robert son should stick to that. Mr. Robertson explained there was a lot of extra lettering.

%\t Pafotekrg Peralb, WINDSOR, FRIDAY, OCT. 24, 1902. Facing Our Difficulties. " The farmers have had a bad time ; and the business people, necessarily, bave had to share their misfortunes. The drought has left many a man penniless. Those who have a bit still have been hanging on to it, not knowing when the lane might turn. But now the rains have come, they ought to relax their grip. Plenty cannot pay up in full, and they don't like approaching us till they can bring a cheque for the full amount. That is a pity. They need feel no qualms about paying " on account,'' for we are all in the same boat I If every farmer on my books only came in with half his amount, I would be able, not only to square up my own liabilities, but to Still further stand to the farmers."-Thus spoke a storekeeper who dropped into our sanctum the other day. The difficulties of the unprecedented period of drought and disaster through which we in this district-in common with other parts of the State-have passed, ...
