Local Topics. Though Haitian's friends are sorry that lie is not good enough for Kemp they lire more sorry that he should have turned querulous and unmanly over tlio' f net of his defeat by one who proves to he a better sculler than himself. It is a moot point whether thero was any font at all last Friday ; perhaps llanlan mistook the palpitations of his own r//-V/w/-lu.'nrt for the bird in question ! Do Library books spread infection': The Dresden municipal authorities lmve recently had that query pretty exhaustively investigated, and the conclusion come to is, that circulating libraries don't spread infecti -n. The experts who came at thut verdict, attached thereto a rider to this effect :— ' Dust books before read ing them ; and never wet the finger in the mouth before turning over the leaves.' We muchly wonder whether if bank notes (those accurate representatives of Jill It a lucre) were submitted to a similar test they'd also come out without it stain on their character. AVe tr...

Ox Monday last Mr. Frank Farnell, M.I'., senior member for Central Cumberland, started on a tour of inspection into the arievunoi-.s mid requirements of his constituents. In the ex perience of the much neglected Cumberlanders, the idea was u novel one. For years past the county has been practically unrepresented in the Assembly, aud, as to getting local require ments and grievances adjusted, tho very thought of the thing had long since become a by- word. The result of Mr. FarueH's visit will be to at once convey to him the feeling of ex asperation which seized tho people of Central Cumberland some two and a half years ago, when they hurled him in over what wore then called ' your old and tried friends.' Theso ' old and tried friends' had indeed tried the pationce of their constituents so often aud so much, that the constituents very wisely decided io try a change, and all along th...
