Cast iron has a cer tain per centage of carbon in it, which makes it brittle and liable to break. Malleable is cast iron which has been sub jected fo intense heat for a number of days until the car bon is entirely drawn o.ut. ‘Malleable iron will never crack, warp or break and makes the only success! upcast ing where strength is iron. The AJujcstic Range top is made of malleable iron and the body of chu coal iron. WATT HSRLEV-HOLKES 88- Fishery Near Kirkland. r fhere will be a fishery at the Kirkland Mil!

Three hundred people and more have been living here during the whole time, and not a single death from fever.

Our advertisers must remember that the subscription lists of the Breeze and Gazette have been combined, and over two thousand subscribers, to say nothing, of par ties who are not subscribers, read this paper. The expense of pub lishing is greater and to meet this expense, the prices on advertising, both for display or local columns are raised just a little higher than was formerly charged by one of the local papers, hut not double. For instance in the Breeze local ines were 5c., now they are 8c each insertion. Display advertise ments were given almost below co*t, at 6 and <Se., per inch— ioc., per inch, each insertion, wiW b“ charged. Special positions will Jjc charged 20 per cent additional. This i-, not as much as other pa pers with 2000 subscribers charge —the regular rate for papers with 1500 subscribers being 15c per inch. This explanation is made simply to show our patrons that the charges made since October Ist are perfectly justifiable, and not ex tortionate.
