then the others To all present I be iir t proposition appeared the t Hut all were of great length and tlieir numerous provisions were confusing It was clear that the Council was in favor of water Hut Councilman Smith suggested that as he had been absent for several months and in conse- 1 quence not familiar with the situation that the Council adjourn until next day to give him an op port unity to examine closely the several propositions Councilman Caperton also said he would like to have further time The Council then adjourned to 11 oclock the following day At the appointed hour the City Fathers met in their chamber at City Hal and proceeded at once to business Representatives of the several water works companies were present The Council announced that the proposition of the Richmond Water Works Company had their preference but they desired certain amendments and specified them The representative consented and the amended pro posit ion was thereupon ac cepted The water proposition was followed by a gas propositionj and they were accepted together The stock of the Richmond Waterworks Co that of the Richmond J as Light Co and ako that of the Richmond Electric Light Co had beeu purchased by a syndicate of Southern and Eastern capitalists and the syndicate had agreed to build water works and enlarge and improve the gasworks provided the city would accept a proposition to use

or a two footed pet for that matter as she has had since that coon became a member of the Llndley family The lindleys live on what Is known as the Ureon Clearing- a farm that was cut out of the woods on the Conkllng brook many years ago about a mile back in the big woods from the narrow clearing that runs up tho banks of tbo Vet Canada The house is one of the few god frame houses located off the West Canada and It has doorknobs on the outside doors instead of Iron latches as most farm houses have up this way One day Ossian is a boy of fourteen last June he was fishing down tho Conk ling brook and got so Interested In it that ho did not notice how late In tho afternoon it was until the sun had gone down Then he started home in a hurry and got so tired running In about ten minutes that he had to sit down on a log to rest While sitting there his eye fell on an unusually large elm standing on a low bit of ground on the further side of the brook Following tho trunk with his eye he noticed after a little that one of the largest branches was dead and moreover had a big hole in it He was just thinking that that hole would be a fine place for a squirrels nest when something much larger than a squirrel appeared at the hole crawled out and made its way down the trunk until it happened to see the boy Then It scam Â¬ pered back Ossian went home and the next afÂ¬ ternoon set a big box trap at the foot of the tree and baited it with tho remains of tho trout the family had had for breakfast That was very good bait for many sorts of animals found in the north woods and It was effectual In this case In the morning there were three very funny looking half grown coons in the trap and Ossian had a terrible tug of it but no end of fun getting the trap home for he had to drag It on an old hand sled When his father came in to breakfast for the trap was visited at daylight ho told Ossian that two of the coons would just serve to make a good pie for dinner while the third could be saved So for Christmas or Thanksgiving two of them were killed and Mrs Llnd Â¬ ley boiled them and made a thiok gravy with cream and poured the gravy and the boiled coon into a big milkpan that had been lined with bis- Â¬ cuit crust and put a cover of crust over all and baked It in the oven until It was a delicate brown all over the top About the time tho baking was done Ossian came in from a half days work repairing fences along the edge of tho woods where the breete blew tho smells of balsam and spruco and hemlock around him continually Ossian was hungry and when he studied that baked pic he stood on one foot and drew the other up to his Irneo in an ecstacy of delight and said Maam aint you nice You bet you siaos mother Is that no woman erer ndley Ob W j9l POWELL OLIVER PLOWS 30- -

on the doughnuts was precisely to his taste and when he had eaten so much that his belly all but dragged on the table ho squatted down in tho midst of his feast and licked tho dainty cakes nearest him In this condition Ossian found him He looked so very comical that the boy sat down on tho nearest cbalr and laughed till the tears camo and even Mrs Lindley vexed as she was to see the ruin wrought with her good things had bad there to laugh Meantime Ossian was training it as dogs are trained It was taught to sit upon its haunches and fold its paws when told that it was time to pray It would on the word arch up its back like an angry oat and at the same time spread tho fur on its ringed tail in a way that was interesting It learned to snarl when told that dogs were coming and as a climax to all its other tricks it would when told to laugh lie down on its back paw the air with all four feet open wide its mouth and squeal in a voice that was excruciatingly funny But as Mrs to all who heard it Lindley justly observed the more it learned the worse it became In its be Â¬ havior about tho pantry and the moro care had to be observed to keep It out of mischief Its latest exploit has set the wholo country side talking Although by no means a drinking man Mr Lindley on occasions takes a hit of strong liquor and the particular favorite which pleases him most is good whisky He keeps a bottle of It In the house all tho time and takes three or four drinks a year from it Last Saturday night after a hard days work in the rain Mr Lindley concluded that a drop with hot water sugar and nutmeg just be- Â¬ fore going to bed would about touch the spot and so Mrs Lindley mixed It for him Thon the family wont to bed and to sleep As tho first rays of sunshine came Into the family bedroom on Sunday morning Mrs Lindley awoke hearing some noise In the kitchen Going soft- Â¬ ly to tho kitchen door she peeped in There was tho coon on the table Be- Â¬ side it lay the whisky bottle uncorked while a great puddle of the liquor bad spread over the table and run down on the floor The coon paddled about in the liquor stopped now and thon to lap it stood still opened and shut bis mouth
