I ATIERS FEMININE. ---~-- BRIDAL SUPERSTITIONS. Many and curious are the customs regarding brides. In Switzerland a bride will permit no one, not even her parents, to kiss her upon the lips 06 her wedding day. In parts of rural England the cook pours hot water over the threshold after the bridal couple have gone in order to keep it warm for another bride. The pretty custom of throwing the slipper originated in France. An oi, woman seeing the carriage of her young King--Louis the Thirteenth passing on the way from church, where he had just beet married, took off her shoe, and, flinging it at his coach, cried out " 'Tis all 1 have, your Majesty, but may blessings go with it!"

Smi,-A few days ago I received a visit from our property valuer, appoint ed by the Town Council. We all admit that values should be revised from time to time. We also admit that property has gone up this last two years and there is every -indication of them coming down again. This revision could have been left until things get to the normal again. Some of us remember, nearly 20 years ago, when our Government stopped a percentage reduction from the men's pay, and values had fallen very low, but did our Council (ake a percentage off our rates? Not they. Now they have appointed a young man and we wonder why such a young and inexperienced man should be ap pointed. When. we see how he is carrying out his duties, it is easy to see .that he is instructed to raise every property up to loo per.ent. No man with experience of any standing would take on su...
