Mr. Yonge and his men would

to affect them at all.
Mr. Yonge enticed us out on the
bright tin on the west side of the
roof, that caught the slanting rays
of the sun.
The heat on this tin, to one not
used to it, was simply unbearable.
Mr. Yonge said the thermometer,
laid on this tin, would register at
least 130 degrees.
It is a good place for a lazy man,
as he cannot enjoy sitting down.

THE NEW YORK EXCISE LAW.
We glean from the Outlook, a
"New York paper, some interesting
and encouraging facts regarding
the enforcement of law in that
On a recent Sunday, out of ten
thousand saloon keepers, only 50
odd were arrested for attempting
to keep open, and they were
watched as never before, from one
-end of the city to the other.
The reason that police labors
were so materially reduced was
that the week previous the courts
came to the support of the police,
and two saloon keepers were sen sentenced

When the first case came before
a jury in the court of general ses sessions,

dealers made no attempt to rebut
