THE MINING WORLD ON BOUNDARY CREEK.

the prophecies of a near approaching

that the " boom"sn lung expected, is

shown samples of potntues, raised nl

known varieties of Early Rose, etc.
Upon enquiry we were informed lhat
they yield profitably and nre apparently very well suited to lhe soil and
climate of this country. Such guud
varieties should be sought after and
every attention paid to Iheir cultivation, as the innrkel fur pululnes und
all other kinds of vegetables will increase at an alarming ratio us uur
mines are developed und the population of the district iiecon.es more plentiful,

merely a delicate hint—lie lind been to
two French balls, had a boning acquaintance with three third-rale ae-
tresses—and no one could ever tell biin
anything he didn't know.
He admired a woman iiliuse age was
a stationary 21), whose hair ivns adjust*
able, anil whose tense was Past.
He passed his hand wearily over liis
ininkleless brow, and paid his count
iu the following iinititpassii.tie.l lerins;
" My child, I have only the remains
of a wasted, life to offer you, lain tired ..I everything, Everything bores
me. Satiety hns been my ruin! But
if you like In take pity »u n man ivho
hns drunk the cup of pleasure to its
bit ter dregs and frittered away a noble
career, 1 nut willing to devote the poor
remnant of ihy life to you entirely."
And lhe woman siiook her head, and
turned aside to hide a smile, saying In
herself: "Why, he is even younger
than 1 thought I"
Twenty years later he ivns naturally

French balls, watched baseball games
instead of playing poker, and was
pretty nearly convinced that there
were many tilings wliieli he didn't

He admired a woman whose age was
a temporary 22, whose bright hair was
indigenous and whose let.se was decidedly future.
liy Ihis time he had dabbled in
obesity cures, developed lead-colored
pouclit'S iniili'i' bis eyes, and Ilis hair
gray and scanty,
His joints cracked loudly, ns he
stretched forth bis hands and paid his
court to his.livinity ill the following
impassioned terms:
" I .uu a young man—with all my
life before me! Although no saint—I
have a clean recotd. I feel I am called
lo glorious possibilities, Come lo my
arms—and with mc walk down lhe
long visl.i of the future!"
And the woman shook her head, and
turned away to hide a smile, saying to
herself: " He must be very old to talk
