ASYLUMS  Hill   Unl'NKAIIDS.
The Nelson Miner, commenting on
tbe report issued by the Prohibition
Commission, who were sitting last
week in Ottawa, says: " It tuok four
pages to carry it. It might have been
written on four pages or less. In fact
the one word ' bosh,' is all that was
necessary in reporting on a proposal to
institute prohibition. Prohibition is
not the cure for drunkenness, There
is only one way to cure it. Treat a
drunkard as a lunatic is treated. Send
him to a special asylum where the
various cures can be tried on him, and
keep him there till they kill him or
cure him,"
This may, or may not, be an efficient
titude of treatment, at any rate it
sounds a little harsh, Granting, bow-
ever, that the Milter's views could be
put into practise, may we be permitted
to follow Iho argument further ?
While tbe unfortunate drunkard behind his asylum walls is being physicked with the cores of Mr. Keeley
and others, the greater sinner, the man
who aupplied the confirmed drunkard with the cause of . his miserable condition, basks in the sunshine of smiling prosperity. This
does not commend itself to British
sense of justice. The Miner should
therefore add to its proposition that
the dispensers of intoxicants should be
Ihe builders of the necessary asylums,
and thu sole contributors to the support of the inmates. This, we think,
would even more effectually check con-
Armed drunkenness than even prohibition,

mines into the United States.
LOW SMELTER CHARGES,
The proprietors of the Josie arc congratulating themselves upon Ihe low
price charged by-the smelter for the
treatment of llieir ore, which is only 10
cents per ton. The cost of smelting
the ore is based oo a sliding scale, dependent on the excess of iron over
silica. In this case it was over 10 pet-
cent, hence the small fee.

creek, tho White Elephant, the assay
returns from wliieli ate unusually high,
showing $28 in gold and 70 ounces in

from the bitter place.

MINERS1 8OPBR8TIT0TIONS,
The old miners' superstition that
when one of their number meets with
death by accident, two more will follow within a few weeks, has been fully
exemplified during the lust week. Sunday morning an accident happened at
the Bams mine by which two men lost
their lives, and while I heir former companions were assembling yesterday to
pay their last respects to the dead,
Charles l\. Simmons fell 100 feet in Ibe
shaft of the Gagiion and was dashed lo
pieces.—Butte Miner.

FATAL ACCIDENT AT LILLOOET.
At Lillooet last Tuesday, while a
number of men were working on Mc
Donald aud Hurley's mineral claim,,
the earth gave way as I he props 011 the
shaft were being removed, aud a mav
named John Farrell was literally bur.
ied alive. His dead body was reeov.

AN UNEXPECTED FIND,
Charles Sweeney, the well-knows
mining operator, brought news from
Trail creek, B. C, to Spokane, that has
eniiched the prospects of the stock*
holders of the War Eagle mine $1,1X10,.
000. A parallel vein of ore has beeq
discovered in this mine, greater in
richness than the vein now being oper.
ated. The discovery was accidental,
Although the mine has heen consid.
ered a bonanza since early in its de.
velnpuient, it wns never suspected that
another and richer vein existed. The
Kansas City Smelting Company, nbout
a month ago offered $1,000,000 for the
mine, hut Ihe majority of the stockholders wanted more. Now the mine
is not for sale,

The Arguments of Mono-Motalllsta,
The Province, whose utterances are
beginning to carry decided wight
among a large class of readers, thus
sapicntly comments on tbe change of
attitude now adopted by niono-metal*
lists towards their opponents of the op,
posite creed:
"It is worthy of note that the Btyle
of argument employed by niononietal*
lists bus recently changed, The doub.
le-standard men are no longer treated.
as congenital idiots with criminal pro,
pensitics, but are reasoned with on de,
tails believed to bu fatal to the lib
metallic theory. For example, if the
ratio to be proposed for international
adoption is not forthcoming on inquiry,
bi-metnllists are held to be defeated all
along the line. The ratio between the
melals is a matter that by the nature
of the ease only can he settled by inter,
national agreement, No private bi-
mctullist, whatever his economic eminence may he, is able to do more than
suggest what tho ratio should he,
The pussible repudiation of the pro,
posed agreement regulating the use 0"
the precious metals, ns a weapon of
war, is another point upon which Ihe
"gold bugs "set great store. The difficulties are great, and the objections to
any conceivable course of action flW
innumerable. But. the public interest
beneath the surface and the sense of
suffering is so keen, that many hold
any change will be a change for the,
better in the present state of affairs,
The bi-metallic Lcugue, which held its
meeting at tliu Mansion House in Lon,
doo the other day, had tn report; con,
siderable progress, not confined to one
part of the world, in the movement for
currency reform. This progress is un,
doubtedly due to n very large extent tu
the unusually active propaganda which
the League has carried on. Yet that
the case for hbuietaUlem has been
proved, nr thnt all who have been infill*,
eneed by the League bave become com
verts lo It, is too much to assume,
Doubt and inquiry are lbe attitude.
Which many have been led to assume,
but doubt and Inquiry are necessary
precludes to thoughtful examination of
any Important question, Tbe main
objections to hl-metnllilin win only bu
proved groundless by experiment, and
it biuHs very much us it experiment

('COIN'S   FINANCIAL   SCHOOL."
A very admirable, little work has re-
peutly been published in Chicago with
the above title, dealing with a question
(vhose vital aspects uru nuiy all but
pnivcrsully rfcqgnized.
An intuyiiuXiupal nilpptiop of a bi-
pietallic standard of coioi(ge is the one
remedy which iB likely to relieve the
commercial and financial depression
which has m,|i|c itself felt throughout
|hi! world. To prove this, "Coin's
Financial School" evidently was written, and we can confidently recommend to those to whom the matter hns
interest a pernSttJ of llle book.
It is a great pity that otherwise so
roimneudahlc a work as "Coin's Financial School" should mar the effect of
jts general argument by descending to
Iho level assumed hy the "jingo" and
bj-iiggadocio school of the American
politician, Declamatory diatribes
against England will unfortunately
ever gain applause from a certain class
of an American audience, and the
author pf the " Financial School," iipt
content to receive the meed ot praise
due the lucid exposition pf his eeon-
piuic convictions., has demeaned himself in his desire for chenp popularity
by pandering to Ihe lower instincts of
|iis countrymen.
The United State* fl-ves much tl
England-ztierhaps this is ber reason
pr jealousy and dislike. England has
developed American mines, fanned
American territory, built American
railroads. Ip fact, it is stated that
j|5,qq(L0QtV00Q is not an under-csli.
mat ion of the value of American bonds
ppnn which money has been advanced
jiy English capitalists, This money
was advanced in gold and is repayable
jn gold. The American, therefore, has
pot the slightest ground for complaint

fe.|f acquiesced, sh-mld not lie carried

..    ASOP TO CERBERUS?
The advertisement this week calling
for tenders for the conveyance of Her
Majesty's Mails, on a proposed biweekly contract between Grand Forks
iind Penticton, will, doubtless, he
■•cad with nn little suprise and gratification. Surprise, such as experienced
by the, miner, who, havj'iig laid his
train and applied the match, waits for
tlie result, which is so long delayed
(hat further 'investigation appeals in*,
eyitable, when, with a splutter and
bang, the explosion takes place. The
gratification, ever sweeter, of hope
Jong deferred at length satisfied, Yel
pot quite gati><fl«d. A bi-weekly mail
service,will bean appreciable Improvement upon tbe system to which we
are now*ccnstoined i but wilh thu development of the country at the present rapid rate of progress, a still more
frequent and efficient system of mail-
carriage, existing not only between
Grand Forks and Penticton, but. connecting wilh the railroad at. Marcus,
will be demanded.
It would be unwise, however, to
•mint our chickens before they nre
latched. It is true tenders are called
or, but that does not. naturally imply
that a bi-weekly mail service will follow. The advertisement calling for
lenders may have been issued upon tbe
Uiisiitulerslaiiding between Mr. Stuart
|inil Mr. Miller anent the additional expense'that would be incurred by the
postal department for the more efftci-
(ml. service: which was placed at $1100,
a figure, whicli appears to be much below a rightf.il estimate. If the tenders
have been invited und.ilthe assumption
(hat''this statement nf slight additional
cost oh the present service is correct,
the Government, upon further investigation, may discover that the proposed
sop to Cerberus, even on the eve of ll
general election,»too expensive a titbit, with which to pacify Ihe monster;
(tin! Mr. Muni will he left in tlie breach.

There can be no doubt but that the

Jook decidedly promising,
The Kettle river last Wednesday
rose to n ithin two or three feet of the
height reached during the unprecedented flood of last year. This large
■volume of water flowing at the present
time is all the more extraordinary, as
the winter was extremely mild, and
therefor the snow on the hills not so
great as is usual.
Being of a modest disposition, Dr.
Jakes will probably resent any allusion to the plucky way in which he
acted on Friday night last. The doctor, as we have.announced, was unfortunate enough to break his leg ou
Wednesday, aud yet, barely forty-
eight hours within the occurrence of
the accident, he insisted on visiting a
patient who was in need of his atten
(inn. Such conduct is in the highest
degree praiseworthy.
A happy event took place on Thursday last, the 21st of May, in the marriage nf Mr, Bart Inghrnm to Miss
Susie McClung. The wedding service
was held al tbe house of Mr.JKcougli,
tti Colville. Mr. and Mrs. Inghram returned on Friday to Midwuy; antl took
up their abode iu their house near Ihe
hotel, which recently was comfortably
finished in the inside. Mr. Inghram is
well aud favorably known throughout
the district, and his bride is not a
stranger to the people of Midway. We
ham Lily join in the the geneiul expression of good wishes to thu happy
couple,
On Saturday a farmer was offering
for sale iu Midway, a waggon-load of
apples, for the very respectable sum of
$3 per Imx of 60 lbs. The apples were
brought from Colville, and were fair
■specimens of the Northern Spy variety
in excellent condition. The owner
stated that he bad experienced no difficulty in disposing of his fruit in
Grand Prairie at $3.50 per box. Surety when such prices its thesu re obtainable, with a climate fully the equal
to that, of Colville, the farmers of this
district would find it to their advantage Lo turn their attention to apple
culture.
Mr.'IIaine is expecting next week a
large consignment of goods, and to
lieing the barber and tobacconist he
will further liecome the toyman, stationer, druggist, and bookseller of the
village. Mr. Haine certainly deserves
to succeed, for he is showing much enterprise and pluck in the face of, what
Some might consider, averse conditions.
For instance, in ordering a small supply pf tobacco lust week, some thirty
pounds, he fqund upon delivery that
the expressage aggregated nearly $4
from Vancouver. To make a profit on
goods, such as tobacco, while these
outrageously exorbitant express rates
nra enforced, is out of the question.
The many friends of Dr. Jakes, resident physician of this district, will regret to near of the unfortunate accident which befell him hist Wednesday.
Tlie horse the doctor was riding lost
ils footing and full oh the sloping entrance to the livery stable, which had
become slippery from the ruin. So
quickly did I his occur that the doctor
had no time to take his feet from the
stirrups, iiiid consequently he received
Ihe full weight of the animal on his
light leg, fracturing it below (he knee,
Dr. Jakes was taken to the Midway
Hotel, where the injured limb was soon
attended to. He passed a fairly comfortable night, and the feverish symptoms had entirely disappeared hy the
following (Thursday) morning.

annexation of Newfoundland as a province of the Dominion:
2, Canada will assume the debt of
Newfoundland, $8,300,0(10, and also an

2. Canada will pay as ii yearly allowance to Newfoundland a sum aggregat,

She will also maintain all that class
of services in Newfoundland under the
head of general or Dominion, and.also

N. Y., U.S.A. There will I* no ex-
cuss now for tardy worshippers, for
the now bell's tones are sonorous and

The dance at Grand Prairie, held in

was from every point of view most enjoyable. The floor wa's in good condition, the decorations tasteful and appropriate, and the music, which was
supplied liy Mr, McLaughlin's hand,
left little to be desired. The supper,

Wo grow more or less restive luring a
long-continued existence of any ono thing
and sigh lor and must have thivt accept*
"•Wo "gploo of llle." Even imturo gives
us positive proof of this condition In hoc
ninny changes of seasons and by hor complete donning each timo of something
ii-esli and new, which shows It Is a guod
thing to do.
Spring, the youngest, and seemingly
tho most favored of all tho seasons, generally brings with It a superabundance of
all that Is bright and attractive, and tho
feminine heart especially leaps high at the
sight of ull thii results of the manufacturer's artistic pluming that havu found ox-
prosslon jn ribbons nnd velvets, silks and
muslins, lliiwiim, feathers and lace.
The girls' hearts are turning just now
very seriously to tho lieautlos of tho now
t-prlng bunnoU, for such dainty confec-
t ions uf a woman's tollut am especially
deserving of consideration this season.
Tlioy aro uf every ooucolvnblo shape, to
suit ovory possible style of face, with
trimmings that, ln tints and brilliancy,
defy ijiu rainbow, and yet all so exquisitely blended as to please mllier than
ilTend the eye, and convincing one at
an-" thut to Mine, ln Parlsleniio alone
oust bu oncrlbod all tho honor for llio or-
U-lnulliy of the unique ln headgear for
tio spring of '06.
For day wear, Inclusive of all occasions,
hupping, calling and receptions, large
at-H wilh droupiug blooinB will lie moBt-
!y ln vogue. For ono preferring quiet
aiganco to brilliancy of conihination,
alai-s are mostly In tbo subdued shinies
,( brown, green and gray, with black
always ln tho lead.
A novelty for tho first days of spring ll
n molro felt, os soft as a Leghorn straw,
alnned Into any elinpo desired liy means
,.f loug, fancy headed pins, with n"Gol-
iiiiel" aigrette finishing tho back, and
fastened just above the coil of hair.
For evening wear the most exquisite
tiling that met my eyo was a small
mquo consisting of a heavy gold cord
. rown, designed ln a conventional pat-
-.ern, with turquolso blue velvet forming
.road limps on curb side of the front; pro-
luing tho desired broad effect to tho
ii'ad. Gold wings appeared just above
lie loops of velvet, while resting at the
..irting of tlio hair was'a knot of velvet,
fastened with a rhineslono buckle. Tiny
pink and blue forget-me-nots poop out
iiere and there from the folds of bluo velvet, n bunch forming an aigrette effect at
ilie front and, couiblnod with volvet,
auisiied the back.
In tho Continental shape was a lovely
'liing with jet foundation, Immense fan
Imw of delicately tinted Dresden ribbon,
for front trimming separated just above
llio forehead by a Jet buckle. Immense.
-laeijiie ruses uf a deep roil tint, out of
•rhlch came bird of Paradise feathers,
formed a lovely finish fur tho hock.
The prettiest of Iho now ribbons are
those uf Preaden patterns; tho foundation
colors being of the most dollcnte tints,
with tiny flowers, In exact counterpart ol
the Ilri'Kdon ohlna ware. |
A revival of many, old-time ribbons,
mostly those ln vogue shout 1830, are observable, but have not as yet gained full
sway.   j
The quaintest sort of headgear possible
and charmingly suitable, the Prlsotlla
mylod beamy, Is the Dutch bonnet and lioia
Is tho Idea.
Tho luilf moon shape Ib designed Is dark!
green Velvet.   Red' and cream roses aro \
cunningly hunched In front; the book!
curved and finished iu velvet.   Just back
of tho cars comes a bunch of cream lace,
fastened with gold oraamonts and roses to
correspond  with the  front trimmings.
Broad streamers of cream satin ribbon
fall below tho waist, and prove a fitting
ilnlsh to this odd creation.
If one had suggested somo months
since a combination of chiffon edged with
;•■■. e it leather, for lint trimming a gon-
nraliy incredulous feeling as to Its fitness
would linvo lieen readily oxpressod. Yot
it Is tho pretttost nnvelty of tho year.
A high peaked crown, just, such a shape
as tlm Mother Gooso favored, Is niodo
entiro'v of 'intent loathor, with a brim of
-bin-id chiffon finished at the edge with
narrow strips of tho samo glazy black
niatortnl. Soft plumes curl nliout the
crown aid droop gracefully over tho hair,
truly a symphony hi black and white.
Inexpensive and dainty is the now
material called trickaline, and ovorwhioh
iho gauzlost uf chiffon looks well. It
combines delicacy with strength and Is
nv st desirable, as for years ono has been
obliged to shirr thin materials ovor.
Thoro is a marked Improvement In tho
iewels for millinery use. They do not offend tho eye as ln former years, and no
aretty evening toque ts complete without
them, and rhlnustonos lead the. day.
Imitation grasses are graceful and wear
well.
ijtiues spangled ln gnld nnd sliver ore
used on overy possible occaslonn, and
Impart a soft grace and expression to the
face of tlio wearer, and parlioularly when
used to form the "ear loops."
There is a whisper that violets must go,
ai they are altogether too common, but
si Hi they trim some of tho prettiest of tho
opera toque*.
Very often a hat is scon that has a
crown of close and a brim nf open straw,
wilh huge pink and rod rows bunched
here and there, and producing a very
flowery and pretty offeot.
Fnr very dressy occasions a to-quo, composed entirely nf primroses Is lovely
enough for a queen. In front a brilliant
rhint'slonu buckle holds a bunch of primroses placed at each end and a large Imw
uf black velvet. Un tho right a marabout
nlgri'lto Is added, while tho (lowers tapering l<> a mere bund, allow tbo coiffure to
be plainly visible.

In the Portuguese possessions of Angola, before the year 16W, the clrcuJMiiig
medium consisted of small mats woven
from a species of straw, and whteh the
natives called lllwiigos. Each llbongo re-
presented a valuo of five rels. The sub-
Itltution of popper coin for thlscurloue
straw money came near bringing about a
revolution, and was tho cause of the death
of many. As a me Hum of the trade
among tho aborigines of California, sea-
ears of obalono (Hallotldes) Jnyvo been
highly esteemed both for their imutj anil
their Importance when used aa shell
money, the shells In the latter ease being
cut into strips of from one to two Inches
ln length, according to tho curvlturo of
the shell, and about one-third as wldo as
long. Those wore Btrung on a string
and UBed lwth ss money and o/flaments.
Tho string bore the name ot uhl-o or
aultrao. As an illustration of the purchasing power of an nlialone, It may be stated
that tn Now Mexico a house has bees
traded for a single shell,
From the reign of Honry I, down to ths
period ill the establishment of the bank of
England, tho legal tondv money of England was fabricated nut of wood. This
'Instrument was milled an enduing" tally,
and, by virtue of it, the holder was entitled to KH*u|yo from the crown the vnluo
prescrilwd Itaoon. It really consisted of
une half of a four-sided rod, or staff, on
which, when In Its entire slate, the stun
It purported to represent was carved ln
transverse notches, varying in width for
thousands, hundreds, scores, ■suimls, shillings nnd ponce. Fnr tho advantage ef
those who could read the sum was written tn Ink on two opposite Bides of tho
staff, and, finally, with a knlfo and mallet the sniff Itself was split ln two longitudinally. One half, called Iho (ally, or
check, was given to tlio person for whoso
service It was Intended; tho other half,
called the counter tally, was laid up for
safe keeping until lls corresponding tally
should he brought In liy tho person who
had last given valuo for It.
Its Intrinsic vnluo was, of course, only
that of tho wuod of which It was composed, bnt, by representation, It denoted large
sums. It was a current token nf real
money nnd served actually to distribute
It from man to man by this exchange.
From this primitive tally was derived tho
excheqiior bill, first lntrodood ln 10*1 by
Mr. Montague, tho chancellor of the exchequer. The wunl "bill," too, was no
doubt derived from tho old French |bllle,
which means a staff. Bank post bills
and bills nf. exchange in our own day
come fnnn thp samo wooden base, and
soldiers in England are still said to be

In nlilun times officers of the army who

were paid with exchequer . talllee, or

IGNORANCE OF THE BIBLE.
Modern Literati,™ Filled Wilh
lo the Greal Hook.
Take this matter of Ignorance of the
Bible. Recent statistics show that 11
exist*, to an oxtont inconceivable to any
person a generation ago, in college students. - And this Ignoranoe Is disclosed not
In attempted religious Instruction, but in
the study uf tlio unlluary branches of a
literary education tn our universities oni
colleges. Tho pupils are entirely unable
to' understand n groat mass of illusions
ln the masterpieces of English poetry and
prose. Borne of those pupils are viotims
nf tho ldoa that tho Bible shuuld not be
reed by tho young, for they will bo prejudiced tn a religious way before their
minds are mature onuugb to select a roll,
gion for themsolves. Now, wholly apart
from Its religious and from its ethical
value, tho Bible Is tho ono book that no
Intelligent person who wishes to come Into contact with the world of thought and
.to share tho ideas of tho great minds of
the Christian era can afford to bo Ignorant of. All modern literature and all art
are permeated with it. There Is scarcely
a great work ln tlio languages that can bo
fully understood and enjoyed without this
knowledge, so full Is tt of Illusions nnd
Illustrations from the Bible. This is
true of fiction, of poetry, of economic and
uf philosophic wurks, and also of the
scientific and even agnostic treatises. I,
Is not at all a question of religion, or tho,
plogy, ur nf dogma, It Is a question ot
general intelligence. A buy or a girl at
college, ln tho presence of the wurks so,
for olthor to master, without a fair kow.
lodge uf tho Bible, is an Ignoramus, and
Is disadvantaged accordingly. It is In it-
pelf almost a liberal cducal Inn, as ninny
great masters In literature havo testified,
It has so entered Into law, literature,
though tho whole mudcrn llfo uf the
Christian world that Ignorance uf tt Is a
piost serious disadvantage to the student.
How this is to bo overcome In our mn,
phlno system Is a gravo question. It re,
suits partly from tho discontinuance of
|ho use of tho Bible In tho public schools,
put mnro especially from tho ohango iq
|he estimation ln which It Is hold ln the
family. In comparison with Its position
|n the family a general ion ago, It Is now
a neglected bcKik. It Is neglected as litem,
turn. There nre sevorol suggestions fo>
reviving Interest in It. One nf them le
already ln uperatlon ln Sunday school
work. Another Is Its study ns literature
|n the schools nnd colloges. But wo bo,
jlovo that tho change will only como
effectively by nttentlon to tho fundamental
cause uf this Ignorance, tho neglect of Its
use ln the homo in childhood. If its great
treasures are not a part of growing
ohllillioou, lhey will always bo external of
tho late possessor. In tho family Id
where this education must begin, and It,
will then tie, ns ll used to be, an easy and
unconscious I'duoalIon, a stimulus to tho

KUYI The Divining Hod.
A gentleman recently wrote to one
of the provincial mining papers nskiug
to be inforined where the iiecille used
liy propectoi-8 fur locating ore veins
jvas to lie obtained. He received in reply an answer directing a neai.t-h in tt
iiuyinow as the must likely spot for
such an article, Tlie facelious reply,
however, loses its point, if the following from a correspondent of the Mont,
real Herald bus any 'truth : Few people believe ill the divining rod as a
lueaiis for locating minero* veins, In
act, it is generally regarded us a fake,
ut last fall two parties came here
from Toronto to prospect in this way.
iThey had not only ti divining rod, but
lilso a new theory us to the mode of
occurrence of the gold leads in this district. -Tbey maintained that the num-
eroiis small gold hearing veins on the
surface were mere croppings of large
mother lodes thut hud been covered
over with lava Hows and drift. They
located several of such lodes, und in
the most unlikely places.   The  old
frospectois and miners laughed or
hook their beads, and especially when
the parties claimed to be able to tell
the percentage of mineral in the ore
and the exact depth uf each ludc below
the groimij, But iu two casus, tine
nearMurkslay nud the other  in lbe
township of Oreighton, the diamond
di ill has proved, strange us it may
seem, Unit lhey were not so fur aslmy
after all. In the one case Ibey found
gold aud platinum at 10) feet from tbe
S|*rfuce, and iu the othor case free gold
at a depth of 180 feet. These are undeniable facts. They say there is
mother large gold and silver lode nn

Kaalo's Hallway.
There cnn he no doubt now of the
construction of the Kaslo and Slocan
railway this summer. Fully three carloads of supplies were purchased by the
contractors last week in Victoria, from
8. Leiser k Go. The contract has been
awarded to Messrs, Faley is Guthrie, nl
St. Paul, well known in railway construction circles. A. Guthrie, the
junior partner of the linn, was in Spokane a few days since, accompanied liy
Obits. Hallcot, engineer in charge,
Both gentlemen were looking over the
ground, prior to commencing work,
lu answer to a query as to when the
work of construction would begin, he
said it was impossible at this time lo
state diflnitely. The final surveys are
being made, and when completed,
jvhich he said would he soon, the work
nf construction will be commenced.
The present trip, he staled, Is being
made largely for the purpose of looking up matters relative to securing supplies, etc., for the work of construction.

pood Times ln Kootenay.
Never were so many men drawing
f'ay in Kootenay as now, says the Nel-
, on Tribune. The payrolls are not all
at one place. At Hossland the nay-
rolls of the mines and local enterprises
will aggregate $1,000 a day ; at Nelson
and immediate vicinity, $100; nt Pilot
Bay, $150; at Ainswiirth, $250; at
Kaslo, the building of the Knslo k Slocan railway will cause fully $1,500 a
day to be disbursed for sovoral
months; in the Slocan the payrolls
(vill aggregate $500 a day even now
when little more than dead work is being done at any of the mines, It is
safe to say that the disbursements for
wages in southern Kootenay aggregate $120,000 a month, and what is
better still, the mines of the country
are producing every dollur that is he-,
lug disbursed.

Hindoo, however, as Ibe following will
show, is often ambiguous, not to say
incoherent in his utterances, The fol*
lowing is a purl, of a petition that was
presented to a political resident of a
native state, from "a poor man in the
agricultural behaviour," praying for
for relief, who subscribed himself
"your honour's damnable." The petitioner, after an elaborate preamble,
went on tu say; "Wherefore befalls
upon his family's bended knee and implores merciful consideration." " Your
lordship's bumble servant," be proceeded, "was too much poorly during
the late rains und was resuscitated by
much medicines, which made magnificent excavations in the coffers of your
humble servant, with large family of
five female women nnd three masculine, the last of whom are still Inking
milk from mother's chest, and are
damnably nuiseful through pulmonary
catastrophe of theii erior abdomen."
And so on.
An Inillun's I'liiicrul.
The dentil of a noted Indian occurred
ou the Still Pool a few days since, and
was followed by y funeral ceremony of
remarkable Impresslvenocs. Some 200
siwusht's hud gathered about, and tin
deceased, placed in a etude box pro
cured from one Boston man, which
was usi-il as a coffin. The solemn ceremony wus commenced liy prayers and
singing. After singing several verses
lhey all marched single, tilt- in a circuit
until a complete circle wns formed,
and continuing the march Hie foremost
ones leading inside of the outside circle
until three distinct circles were formed
around the coffin, which sat on a piece
of level ground sclented for the pill',
pose, each chanting a mournful sound.
After the chief lead in prayer, with all
the si|iuii>:_; ai-outid close and the bucks
circled outside, the procession moved
off to the burial ground, The march
was made with order and solemnity
that would do credit to any people us
well as siwushc;--. When the grave
was reached the solemn ceremony mentioned above was repealed aud more
prayers and singing, while the brother
of the deceased kept up a continual
wailing. The squaw known to be his
wife gave away bis old clothes and
gun, and his band of cayuses were distributed  among   his   relatives   and
friends,

A I'IhIi Story.
The following story is told by a reporter of lhe San Francisco Chronicle:
The big curp which occupies lhe pond
with the pelican in Golden Gate Park
had a most sickening experience, besides startling the beholders, It seems
t|',a,t a l.uiy of an Inquiring turn of
mind tossed a small piece of shaving
soap to the lish to see if the carp would
eat it. He did, and has been sorry
for it ever since. After Inking the
morsel, the carp sunk quietly to the
bottom of the pond nnd apparently engaged in deeji thought. Then his eyeballs suddenly dilated and his litis wriggled convulsively. A second later a
large bubble, with rainbows in it, ruse
to the surface und tloated slowly round
in a circle, Tlie carp gasped, and a
perfect flood of suds und bubbles
gushed from his mouth and gills, lie
dashed wildly along the bottom of the
pond, coughing up lather enough to
run half the barber shops in town.
Great rifts of suds, fonin, and bubbles
formed on the surface, but still the fish
seemed to have a good supply of snap
remaining. At times lie leaped clear
out of the water, evidently looking for
something to take the taste mil nf liis
mouth, but not. Iltidlng it the unhappy
carp went below again, In the course
of twenty minutes lie had bis system
comparatively clear of simp, but for
the rest of tho day the fish took little
or no interest in whal was going on,
