In our immediate district tho estimates are given as fol lows : Charlton, GO,000 ; Warnc, Dumosa, Nullawil and Kanicra, 02,000; Quambatook, 30,000; Lulbert and Cannie, 28,000 ; Mea tian and Ultima, 31,500.

There are probably thousands of people in this country who do not know what asbestos is, or to what various uses it is put, so a word about this wonderful substance will not, perhaps, he out of place.-< Asbestos is a kind of rock of a fibrous nature, aud is found chiefly in ttaly, Canada, and Itussia, the Itali an variety being ihe best.
