GIDEON  GA8KIN8' DEATHS.
Old Gideon Gasktna used to die
Willi unexampled frequouey;
Indued, the joys of death to him
Possessed unuBunl piquancy.
An upright, dowwighl ipun waa ho,
Of rulo and peg ihttlon ■
And, barring lib repented deaths
lie hatl no dissipation.
Ho lived n H(o of ordered peace,
Of sweetness, truth, an .[charily;
Butthrougli iti* long and honored llfo
He died with regularity.

With doconUIko formality,
And mi hi.; holrgft! I hi* bctl

To bearol oaoh repeated doajb,
His dying admonition.
Tlioy shod a proper flood of tears
Tholr --iii' -.voro une mtrollablo,
And ovory tlmo thai Gideon died
Tholr grii I ivna Inconsolable.
And every lime Ihal Gldoott dlod

To which lio'd given UfV.ong thought
And yearn of preparation;
A Bpooeh thai Bagged with good advleo
Which ho had loaruod momorltor,
Wliieli mado a fame for (iidoon
Ab a great dying orator.
Ami when bo made this dying Bpeoctj
To friend and heir and lover,
Tho dying GIdooii would begin
Toflpoodily rooovor,
And thon tho Iron grasp of doftthj
That's usually bo rigorous.
Would quietly lot go its grip
And leave him strong and vigorous,
Hut then within a month or twu
The Bummons would go flying
To all of Gideon's hotn tu eomo
For ho was once more dying,
And when ihe weeping heirs once more
Aboul his bed were seated,
Then would his time-worn dying speech
iie once again repeated.
And no ho died year after year,
Till all bis heirs were burled ;
Till lhey In Charon's fatal boat
Had o'er (he stream heen ferried.
For all bis heirs they died one death
And lived a life of brevity ;
Hul he w!iu died so frequently
Attained a great longevity.
Yel who would taste a long, sweet llfo
In all its lengthy piquancy,
When you aro young begin 'o die
And keep it up with frequency.

INTERNATIONAL  ni-MRTALLISJI.
Tho growing sentiment in England
liifuvorof Iuli'i-iuttliin.'il bl-inctailisni
is finding a hi'urty response in Prance,
mil llie interest is iucreusi g in Germany, TliestuliiiiirnuillU-'i-i'iiL-eiu puw*
t'rfiil and perhaps selfish adherence In
Great Britain may act us a chock upon
any effectual legislation, but even
without ii there is no doubt that the
combined action of tlm Latin nations
with the United States could he made
to result iu an international agreement
for the coinage of gold and silver us
standard money sufficiently powerful
to lie practically universal.
Unl il the period between 1S71 und
1874 there had lien vary little variation between the value of tbe two met-
als, notwithstanding all the fluctuations in their relative production,
Since that time the divergence has
been great and continues to become
greater, and the consequences threaten
to lie disastrous unless the nation, exercising their prerogative, take legislative steps to restore thu parity,
The United States alone cannot restore silver to tho place it has occupied
for centuries, bul In combination with
other nations Interested in maintain*
ing a sound and substantial currency,
such a ratio could lie fixed as would insure tlie respect of the entire world.
The experience of the past few years
has demonstrated that the theory that
-apply and demand, acting Independently upon Hm vulue of the two metals
would maintain a parity was fallacious, for almost, simultaneously witli
the abandonment of legislative rating
of silver it began to decline. Statistics
given in these columns show conclusively that, through thu long perlud ol
two hundred years, and during all Ihe
fluctuations of production, the ratio
bad remained practically the same;
but si; spun us Ihu legislative link
whlchlioiintlt.be two metals was severed, I he divergence between them began. Tin- gold tnono-motalllsts iusisi
that tills divergence is due to the decline nf silver,,-mil many members of
the English commission were inclined
lo lake Ibis view nf It, lull aa all oilier
commodities begun to decline in sympathy llieir eves were opened, llllll till'
coin ictioii is i,ipidly spreading Ihal ii
[a gold whicli Is advancing by virtue of
its legislative monopoly,
One of the members uf the royal
commission of 1888, and who then reported adversely In the adoption ol
lii-malallism, on tlie ground Uial "lbe
greater pari of the fall III prices uf com*
mndllles has resulted fnnn causes
touching the commodities rather than
from an appreciation of the standard,"
, later recanted, lie publicly deelaredi
"I uin now satisfied thai lliere has,
been ail appreciation of gold greater
than I suspected when I signed the report, and I should not be able to concur In the same paragraph again."
Tills goes rfgbt la the lout of ilm
question,   If gold bus appreciated it in
ecausc of legislative support.  Gold
as not become less plentiful; on the
intrary, il   has  increased   in annual
output, so thai tho enhancement of its
alue is uol ilm. to scarcity,  Ii  will
ut, lie denied thai ii growing scarcity

diver might in  tho course ot a few
pears have a disturbing Influence; bul

ictive production is proof thai Ulead*
Iii inn Iii ilie bulk of the metal has I n

value only hy the law, and nut hy nature, Inasmuch us change of agreement
among I hose who use ii can depreciate It completely, The ancient pliilos,
npber may, it seems front recent
events, yel ho studied to great advantage.
Edward Tuck, wlm is Ihe most clear
and forceablc of the advocates of inter-
national hi-iiielallism, has expressed
Ihe situation iu terms which should lie-
cotno an article of faith. "Iu llie
period," bo says, "between 171)11 and
1831, when Ihe legal ratio of llie two
metals was as 15 to 1 in Ihe United
.Stales and as ljs to 1 in France, gold
flowed from the United .Slates lo Europe, whero ils changeability was largest, while silver flowed from Europe U)
the United Slates, where Its changeability was largest, In Wil the United
States changed the ratio to II) to 1, iu
stead, unfortunately, of adopting thu
ratio of l."ij to I ill accord witli France;
and from that time on silver migrated
to Europe, gold taking Its place in the
United Slates." The cbeapei coin remains and the dearer one migrates to
the country where, by a different legal
ratio between the two metals, it is
more highly valued.
To avoid the danger of either ex-
reme, International bi-melullists insist
that an equlpose shall he established hy
law upon an Invariable parity of inter*
changeable value. Tims would variable preferences he abolished, and the
price of silver he as lb inly established

GQU SAVE THE QUEEN.
On Friday next all loyal subjects of
the British Empire will celebrate as a
'befitting token of esteem and congratulation tin- bin Inlay of Her Majesty the
Queen.
Canada is never slow to prow her
reverence for the sovereign, as both,
Bynastlcally the representative, of the
national greatness, and personally, as
|he mother of her people, us such,
111 honoring the Queen, wo hut do justice to otirselvos,
If Her Majesty is |-c,.yred, she is also
belo.cd, her subjots loeugnizing in her
all that Is womanly as well as all that
is noble and regal. Above all oilier
tilings, the English race prides itself
ppon the cultivation of the domestic
virtues, and 111 this respect the Queen
has ever shown herself to he the exemplar of what is worilitost in the national character. Therefore her private
joys havo rejoiced a people, and her
sorrows regarded as a national misfortune.
Her Majesty's reign bus heen distinguished, not only liy tbe enormous
spread of British power, tbe growth of
her colonies, and the increase iu the
national wealth, hut by the extension
of freedom, religious und political, by
the discoveries in science, and by the
progress io the arts,
In celebrating the birthday of the
Queen wo do honor to one. whose
reign has been politically and socially
the grandest in our history.

KELOWNA NOTES.
(From ur own corrcapondont.l
Two heaf-hunting parlies, Mr. H.
Walker's and Mr. J. Divvies', returned
Unsuccessful. Mr, Davies has gone oul
again. A largo black hear was shut by
Mr. T. Brent.
Mr. B. Lequime is erecting a windmill.

The Kelowna cricket club bus arranged a match with Vornon for tho
2Hli, and are gelling up a concert und
theatricals for, the evening, The Koi-
owna fool lnill club is to play Trout

Mr, Deans, constable, of Penticton,
paid a visit to the valley this week iu
search of a lunatic. The majority of
the population took to the hills'until
he left.
Mr. Prlclhum has had an addition to
liis family in tlio shape of a son and
heir.
The irrigation ditch on the bench
lands above Mission crook is nearly
completed and will, bring over 1000
acres under cultivation.
The weather remains cold and
windy.-Wind said to arise from
Btrenuous efforts of needy i-un-.-1'er.s
to raise it.
At the meeting of tbo Agricultural
Associatiun Mr. A, Postill proposed a
scheme for starling a telephone line

A largo number of the young pear

Worthy of Imitation.
A dreamery on the co-operative system has heen started at tho Delta, on
tho Fraser river. Tlio company has
ordered from Ontario a butter-making
plant sufficiently large to  deal with
iliilk fr 5011 cows.   Not content with

coinpany.has secured the best of but*
ler-iniikors, It) the person of Mr. King,
forinorly hiiller-mak-or at the Ontario
Agricultural Uollogo, to superintend
the work.
The fanners of the Okanagan, as a
general tiling, willi all respect to a
most intelligent class of men, are not remarkable for the qunlity of the butter
whicli is produced hy thein I that is,
even those who can give so secondary
li branch of hii-baiulary, as compared
\vitll llieprnlKsiiccruiiig to the growing of wheat, somo considoiation.
Willi Ibis modification, then, the farmers who do make butler rarely make
il.well.und il is therefore not surprising that they find no markel for their
finlter, Hard limes iu 1,1.1c, Qkitnilgaii
and Spalluinehoen are Ihe ollcc), perhaps of many causes: hut. ehiot, auong
I hose causes mu-t he placed, want of

'    With tlio JIoArtliui--l'orro«t Process for Saving Gold,
(Concluded from hist week.)
The plaintiffs invention, as i-lainied

anticipated, and it hud lieen Infringed,
The point as to disconfqrmlty when

llieir invention' as helug llnil they

labor and tenuis employed fm* a few
days, has reduced to highest order the
orchard ami grounds adjoining the
home. Until now it is a pretty spot,
and, with the bountiful supply ot water
wliieli belongs to the property, itseems
doubtful whether more beautiful surroundings could be found in the pro,
vince than will be those of the home.
The lirst Inmate has arrived, a patient
Btifferiug from asthma, and who lias

Demand forPnoli Horses,

llentinii the patentee had In do much
more. Nut only had lie to stale therein whal his in.'-, nl inn was, lull lie musl
niirlii'ii'miy describe Iiqjv ils invention
was to bu carried oul and performed,
and what be claimed, und then came
the time, applying thu rule of law to
the presenl case, for the plaintiffs to
slate the proposition in which they
find that the cyanide "f potassium was
io be used in the solution to carry out
their invention, Thnt was what they
had done. They could not, hold thai
lliere was nny iliseonfnrniily, as argued
by the defendants. Assuming that the
specification be read ns thu plaintiffs
desire il should, still there remained
(liy, ij ileal ion as to what was the true
reading nf Ihe specification with cl'llm
No. 1 in it, Sir Richard Webster argued that claim No. 1, with the words at
the end, "substantially us hereinbefore described," limited Ihal claim to
(he quantity of cyanide of potassium
claimed, Their Lordships could not
read the specifications in Unit way.
l'iiey would if they could, but they
could not do so. It appeared to them
that claims 1 and 2 were independent
claims, havingapplieatlip a, 'he whol-
specification—the first making claim
for the use of any cyanide of potassium
in solution Irrespective of amount sub*
, stnntially as therein described,and the
second making claim fin- the use of a
dilute solution containing a specified
quantity of cyanide of potassium, It
appeared lu Ihem iinnosaShle to discard
either the ono or the other, or to hold
that both meant the same thing, or
^bul. claim 1 applied to one part of llie
yieriliaal.ilui und claim 2 to another,
for that, In their judgment, was not
thu true eonsl rtu.ttoii of the specification as framed, If llu-first claim hud
had been disclaimed or omitted they
would not have been faced with the
difficulty lhey were, Imt as it was in
the specification they were unable lo
read it as the plaiotilfs desired lo do,
and for that reason and Ibal, reason
alone, lhey must witli reluctance give
judgment fur the defendants and dismiss thu appeal wilh costs,
The Cussel Company will carry
(he case up In Ihe House of
Lords, and ns Ibey have lind official
i.iiitillcnt ion that theycaii amend tlie
specification there is oo doubt as in
the final issue of Ihe litigation, The
Company control patents all over the
world, and In the face of this lhey will
undoubtedly look very carefully after
their rights and will lie in ti position to
maintain them. Referring to the decision iiy the Court of Appeal lbe Glasgow Herald of April It) says Hint while
shares of llie Cassel Company fell ou
Ihe,Slock Exchange on the first, lull*
inatiun of it, lhey subsequently rallied
whim the actual facts became known
and that thu appellants had t.ho right to
amend llieir specification so ns lo meet
(lie objection wliieli had lieen held
fa!nl to the sueeess of the appeal.
The MeArlhtir-Forrest process is
likely to be largely used iu British Columbia, indeed, us was said above, it is
only by Ibal or some similar method
that a large proportion of the ores of
Ihe Province can he profitably treated,
and it is out, we think, venturing ou
loo great a prophecy lo say Hint in the
application of lbe MeArllittr-ForresI
process will lie found lbe means of eie
atlngan activity in llie mining of the
quail-,-.hdgesof ibe Province whicli
Will create a period of general prosperity, Willi Ibis view we tllOllgllt it,

the Cassel Company io regard lo the

agent for I'nmida, Mr. VV. I'ellow-
llurvey, of Vancouver, the Company
will take active steps to bring the 'process Intogeiieral use, with the belief thai
while their Is ait ample Held for operations, the general adoption of Ihe process by mine owners will bun. res ills

A New Blasting Powder.
Several of Ihe explosives used ill
blasting within the lust few years have
been combinations of which cbloruteof
potash forms a conspicuous element.
With petroleum it makes " rack-a*
rock," with saltpeter and crude gamboge Ihe "the oriental powder," once
used in opening Ihfc oil wells in Pennsylvania, and with potasaium-ferro,
ferri-eyaiilde and sugar, an article
known both as "while powder" nnd
•' (Jerman gunpowder." This same
salt has also been mixed witli sulphur
aiid other various materials for the
same general purpose. A new coin-
pound of the chlorate, with sugar only
is now reported from South Africa,
It is called "thorite," probably after
the Scandinavian god of thunder,
I'linr. For several months Ibis explosive has been tested in Ihe coal mines
at Vereenlglng and elsewhere, w|lh
excellent, results, It is said to be all
most as powerful as dynamite, weight
for weight, cheaper to toake, and virtually free from unpleasant funics
Sir Frederick Abel, one of tlie inventors of cordite and a leading authority
on explosives in England, bus sent an
expert to Capetown to establish a laboratory I'm- further experiment.
Wherein the superiority of thorite
over oilier potassium chlorate powdets
lies is uot Indicated in the brief press
notices hitherto published. In someof
the mixtures used, especially those
containing resinous gums, tbe particles
become consolidated hy heat, a result
impairing lite efficiency of the product,
and one which it. would not be safe to
overcome by trituration, One would
anticipate that moisture would effect,
sugar in a similar way, lint, possibly
thorite is guarded from damp air
scrupulously until it is used.
A Tramway tn the Minos,
We are pleased to note, through the
medium of tlie New Denver Ledge,
Unit a llriiish Columbia firm, the 11, 0,
lion Works of Vancouver, bus secured
the order for tbe equipment of tlie Sin-
can Tramway Company's lines, which
are being built from the concentrator
to the various mines iu the vicinity of
New Denver,
The Tramway Is being built on the
three rail principle. Six cars, of two
tons capacity each, are being built iu
Vancouver to equip tlie roud. To control those,powerful fiieliiui brakes will
ibe used. In many cases the grade will
be exceedingly ilcute, nearly 15 per
eenl. The curs will be worked on the
gravitation principle, one car going
down witli ore pulling up a second
with supplies. The cable to bu used
will be a two-inch, sevciileen-sl.rand, of
line sled.
Great headway is being made with
Um work, anil it is predicted that in
two months'Ihne the concentrator will
be running wit. full supplies; nf ore via
the tramway, The B, 0. Iron Works
will extend their capacity to manufacture nil kinds of concentrator utul general mining machinery, They are receiving much encouragement from
large mine owners.
