Robert al, Lake St. John, Que bee, Jan. b. me lives ot seven Ursuline sisters were lost to-day in a fire that destroyed the Convent of Our Lady of Lake St John at this place. The establishment was con trolled by the Ursulines of Quebec, a cloistered order and the oldest reli gious sisterhood in Canada. Usually there are about fifty young ladies in attendance at the school besides the nuns and the other at taches of the establishment, making in all about 100 inmates. Most of the students, however, were away fcr the holidays. When the alarm was eiven the nuns ""bravely undertook the task of rescuing those in their charge, and in this heroie task these who worked gave up their lives. From floor to floor or the doomed building these Christian devotees rushed through blinding smoke and lurid flame,' sounding the alarm and not until every one in their charge was warned of their danger and safely out of the building did they turn to the saving of their own lives. It wai then too late and over come by the heat and smoke, seven of these heroic sisters gave up their lives. charles a. reynold?, Lieutenant-Governor. Charles A.

In 1894 Mr. Worth was elected State Treasurer to fill out the remainder of Mr. Bain's unexpired term. His ad ministration of tbe Treasury Depart ment has been characterized by an impartial execution of the Revenue Laws and by devotion to the best in terest of tbe people.
