THE ROOF SAVED HIM. The Irishman who went up in the hotel lift without knowing what it was did cot easily get over his surprise. He tells the story in this way: " 1 went to the hotel, and says I, 'Is Mr. Smith in 5* " Says the man with the sojer cap, ' Will yer rUp in ?" "So I steps into the office,and all »f asnddint he pulls the rope, and the walls of the btiildiog began running down to the cellar. " ' Och.

j§$adt»iUf Ittrot THE MITCHELL RABBIT BOARD AND ITS WORK. OUR local contemporary recently de voted a lengthy article, partly his torical, partly political, and partly administrative, to the Mitchell Rab bit Board and its affairs. As the first meeting of the newly-elected Board will take place on Monday next, the occasion will be an appro priate one for making a few addi tional remarks. We do not propose to toach any further on the politi cal issne than to state that we share the snrprise and regret gene rally expressed at the rejection of the lute chairman (Mr. Hood), ot whose zeal, energy, and administra tive ability there conld be no qnes tion.

YOUNG ELEPHANTS TOILET A great many babies dislike soap and water, &nbsp; &nbsp; and cry when they are being washed. Not6 so &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the great four-legged baby at the Zoological Gardens. He likes to feel the cold water &nbsp; over him in pailfuls, and l to share his thick &nbsp; rough skin rubbed and scrubbed with a hazel &nbsp; &nbsp; broom. The young creature has not got &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; things to amuse him in his English prison, and &nbsp; so the mornitig visit of his keeper is looked &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; forward to with delight.As soon as the man &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; enters down goes the big baby upon his knees, and anyone standing by. can see by the &nbsp; curling of the trunk and the twinkling of the eyes how he enjoys his toilet.

SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 1 August 1896
SCHOOL OF ARTS. The opening concert and dance to mark the completion of the recent en largement of the School of Arts took place on Friday evening last. The attendance was good, though not so large as the merits of the matter war ranted. His Worship the Mayor (Mr. A. Aeschimann), In declaring the building open, remarked that, going back some few years, a few gentlemen formed them selves into a committee to collect funds to build a School of Arts. They were very successful, and the public, through their steady exertions, were provided with the old establishment. He thought and he trusted the public would agree with him that the additions made to the building were a great improvement to Charleville. He had been requested in his official capacity as Mayor of the town to open the new building, which, gave iiim much pleasure. Enough money had been collected to enable the committee to erect the present handsome building, which was a credit to any town. His Worship, after making a few very...
