Ho The city council decided Saturday evening to extend the water mains from McGregor street to M. B. Dalton's, every resident along the line but one agreeing to take water.

And what hands they are! Not large nor small, with a square palm and long, slender fingers as sensitive and delicate in appearance as those of a woman, and yet with muscles and sinewBof steel. Think fora moment of the schooling these hands have had to enable them to perform their manifold duties instantly, unerringly, deftly in response to the will of this most versatile of artists. It is an aesthetic da- light to watch his hands during ono of his soirees magigue, Now manipulating a pack of cards with a skill that seems to give life to each individual bit of paste board; now recalling scenes of sunny Spain with witching strains from mandolin or handura; now developing a seascape of charming vigor and naturalness on a sheet of blank paper and, while one watches as in a dream, with a few magic touches transforming it from calm to storm, from sunlight to softest moonlight. All of this requires the most assiduous practice, and having once brought a feat to a presentable state of perfection Maro, this veritable wizard continues a regular routine of exercise devised by him to give to his hands the necessary flexibility. A simple movement frequently used by him will demonstrate to any one who tries it how supple and perfectly controlled these fingers are. Bringing the tips of the first and third fingers of the right hand together to form a little bridge Maro curls down the second finger and darts it back and forth under the others without touching them either at the sides or at the top. Tho muscles of the firm palm are just as carefully exercised and developed. Palm muscles, ny hands is'tho .cleverer," ho said, Sometimes I think it Is the left one when I notice what it has to do in the complicated fingering while I am piny ng. On tho violin and other stringed nstrumonts it scorns to havo tho more important work to do. Yet, on the pi- ino the right hand, us a rule, is given ! all the delicate work, while tho left gets tho heavy manipulating. In painting, the right does the bulk of tho duty and in magic the burden is about equally divided. Every successful magician has to bo ambidextrous, as a matter of necessity, so 1 uso both hands equally well in till ordinary employments like handling tools or throwing ajmll. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS.
