MAR11IAUE    BELLS.
Mr. Frank R.  Kline, of Flllrvlow, lo
31lsn Aiinii(.tititlioi-]ic, of Brunswick, Nebraska.
On Wednesday, Feb. 18, was celebrated the marriage of Mr. Frank B,
Kline, of Fairview, to Miss Anna Gun*
tborpe, of Brunswick, Nebraska, at the
congregational church of that place,
in the presence of a large number of
friends of the contracting parties, The
church was beautifully decorated with
in-elies, evergreens, lilies nnil other
flowers, with a large white Illy in the
middle of lbe centre arch representing
a marriage bell, The entrance of the
bridal party Into the church was the
signal for a beautiful wedding march
to lie played upon tbe organ by Miss
Kelly, the organist, which those present listened to with evident pleasure,
Mr, John (Juntliiirpe supported the
groom, and Miss Orlnklaw the bride.
The officiating clergyman was the
pastor of the church, Rev. 8, A. Blair,
the ceremony, as performed by liim,
being very impressive and solemn, and
reached the hearts of those present.
After receiving congratulations fnnn
their numerous friends tho party, followed by a large number of invited
guests, repaired to the home of the
bride, where tlie bride feast was prepared, and participated In by the
guests in a manner that would bring
joy to the heart of a King.
The contracting parties left Brunswick on the Friday following for Blair,
Nebraska, where a grand reception
was tendered them by Mrs, Emily
Kline, the groom's mother.
The Advance wafts on the wings of
thought its hearty congratulations to
the far-off hnpny couple, iiiiii trust
that their in-Kline-ing years may witness no de-Kllpe-Ing affections, but
rather that their lives uiny re-Kline
ever on beds of roses.

WHAT  10 TO  1 MEANS.
We are asked a dozen times a day
what " 10 to 1" means, which is used
relative to the values of gold and silver. Men who are supposed to know
better, are as ignorant of this fact as a
tenderfoot miner. They will go down
into their pockets, produce a silver
dollar and say we want" 10 of these
silver dollars coined free a* the mint of
Uncle Sam for every gold dollar so
coined, Poople who live in a state of
individual ignorance, never read papers, and do their business from day to
day for what it is worth are not to be
blamed for this, hut mining men who
profess to know something about the
relative values of mineral ought to
know better than to produce a dollar,
or dollars from their pocket and compare it with the almighty gold dollar,
There is no comparison, whatever, between two metals as a circulating medium. Gold is just as much as its
value will represent, while silver is
only a commodity.
This question has been explained at
least a million times in different ways,
yet people cannot compose themselves
long enough to realize the exact meaning of the difference between a gold
dollar and il silver dollar. The phrase
used in making the demand for the
free and unlimited coinage of silver at
the ratio of 1(1 to 1 simply has to do
with the weight of the inetiils. It
means that there is sixteen times ns
much silver in a silver dollar ns there
is gold in a gold dollar. It is un easy
matter to bear this explanation in
mind when associating it with the subject of weight. There is no reason on
earth why a western man should possess himself with so much ignorance,
If you have a silver dollar in your
pocket that silver dollar is worth just
00J cents to-day; but if you have a
gold dollar its value Is just sixteen
times more valuable in intrinsic value
as the silver dullar when at par. The
people of the west, nsarulo, want what
lhey don't know what they urn getting,
nnd the sooner they ure educated to
understand the silver question the inure
intelligent will be their opinions und
tlie more practical their luilluts.
Mr, c. M. Allen, Superintendent of
the Hutle & Huston Mining Co,, offers
tho following correction to the foregoing article, which is of great value
to those who take an interest in the
nil important money question of the
day.  He says :—
" In your issue of I'Vliruory fl, on the
first page, you liuve un article entitled
"What 1(1 to 1 means," I desire to
call your attention to some errors con-
liiincd therein. It is to lie deplored
thut this subject is so little understood',
and us the mining public lookfor Information to the journals devoted specially to this subject, il is only right,
that they should lie correctly Informed,
"You stale ibntii silver dollar to*day
is worth (HIS cents, whereas, When silver is worth 00 cents perotince tho
silver dollar is worth 1(11-10 omits. The
calculation to prove this is made ns
follows; One troy ounce contains ISO
grains, one grain would therefore be
worth 1* ISO part of 00 cents, which is
,126 of a cent. One dollar contains
1121 grains, of which 0-10 is silver,
therefore, in one dollar there ure
(1-10x1121 grains or 871} grains of pure
silver, which multiplied by .125 cents
gives 10 1-10 cents as intrinsic value of
a silver dollar when silver is worth 00
cents un (iiince.
"You next state that if ynu have a
gold dollar, " its value is just sixteen
times more valuable In Intrinsic value
us the silver dollar when at pur." This
is neither grammatical as to construction nor true ns to figures; the correct
statement would be that the intrinsic
value uf the gold dollar Is more than
double that of l he silver dollar ul presenl bullion values, Thut these errors
should appear in print from the pens of
silver men themselves is not lo lie
wondered ill when we lieui- llntt  the
statesmen and law makers of our nation lulk of bl-metiillism on a mono*
metallic basis with a rutin of 1(1 to I.
"Then the miner Immediately increases the production of one of tho
metals or falls to produce the desired
amount of the other, nnd the nil in of
production being destroyed, the value
changes, Ab It cannot change on the
metal used us u basis of calculation,
the other metal must go up or down on
the markets of the world in accordance
with the laws of supply and demand;
whereas, if every money metal was
placed on its own foundation, made redeemable in its own bullion, any precious metal could Le coined Into bullion with itilvuntnge to the country
producing that metal i the only thing
necessary for law makers tu establish
would be the ratio between the new
coin mid the existing money, For instance, platinum would make a good
coin if bused on nnd inutle redeemable
In platinum bullion. The present
amount of this metal would require a
ratio of about two of platinum -° u,"!
of gold, However, if platinum coins
were issued and like the present silver
dollar, based on the gold dollar, they
would suffer the snine fate us the present silver coins, Silver bullion received
at the U.S. mint, coined into iliillnta
containing 871} grains of pure silver,
good for oue hundred cents, good for
all debts, public nnd private, and n-
deemiible in silver bullion ul. the mar
ket price of silver bullion obtaining on
the day of redemption, would establish a fixed value of $1.2021) for an
ounce of silver, just as gold is worth at
all times $20.07 per ounce,
"At the present time when gold is so
scarce uml there is such a deinnnd for
it by the President and Secretary of
tlie Treasury, if gold coin wus bused on
silver us a money bnse, just us silver is
now based on gold, the yellow inelal
would be worth about $12.00 per troy
ounce. With the free coinage of silver
ou the above plan, money would become more plentiful, there would bo
less demand for gold, the price of commodities would Increase and we would
be the most prosperous nation on the
face of llie earth, because we now produce over half the silver of the world.
The fact that Ibis money is made redeemable in its own bullion to the
amount of 100 cents lo the dollar, insures nil nations and classes iiguinsl
luss and thus makes a money Unit
will always be at pur in nny country,
The reason that copper, tin, Iron, or
other base metals cannot bu used us ,*i
money is, that to establish a ratio of
intrinsic value would niuke the. coins
so cumbersome that they could not bo
bundled iii commercial transactions.
In fact, a very careful survey of all tlm
metals shows that gold and silver are
thu only t wo that are suitable und that
there is not enough of gold Is proven
beyond question, When our law makers recognize thu fuel that silver must
be placed on her own foundation,
tlie financial muddle will be settled at
once and for all time,
• "Think of a country Unit could produce over half the money of the world!
No wonder that foreign ti.it inns object;
hut it can and must be done, nnd I
trust that these suggestions will reach
tho eye of some one who cull lu ing I lie
matter rightly before ('uiigrcss, for if
properly understood it would he no,
trouble to get it luw pusscil that would
be so beneficial to all nnd Injurious In
none."—Montana Mining and Market

MONDAY, MARCH 11,1H05*
Many enquiries luive been addressed
to us by intending settlers as to the
change that has been made to the
Iiiinil Act re the pre-emption of Government iinsui-veyed land, and
whether or not it is possible to take up
BSMor 160 acres at (be present time.
For (he benefit of those in doubt we
herein submit the "Amendment to
the Lund Act aud Amending Acts," in
whicli section S of t|ie same provides
Unit; "The section substituted for
section5 of the "Laud Act" liy section
5 of the " Lund Act Amendment Act,
I8!in," is hereby further amended by
adding thereto the following sub-see
linn: "The Lietileiiuut-Governor in
('(iiini'il tuny, liy advertisement in the
British Columbia. Gazette,pruvide Hint
111 any specified urea enst of the C'as-
elides, pre-emptions sbull not exceed
(inc. hundred und sixty acres."
It is, therefore, apparent that the
matter of prescribing special areas in
whicli not more than 100 acres of land
tuny be pre-empted enst of the Cascades, lies in the hands of the Lieuten.
ant-Governor, nud ns no such areas
have ns yet been prescribed effecting
this part of the province, it is still open
to pre-eiutors to take up the usual 320
acres in this district.

Mr. Hewitt Boktock has consented
to become standard bearer for the Liberal piiily at the forthcoming Domin
ion election, in opposition to our present member, Mr. J. A. Mara, Mr.
linstock is fuirly well and favorably
known in some portions of the
province, more especially so iu
iniil mound Kamliu.ps, iu which purl
of the constituency we are given to
understand he will receive a large
measure of support, lu outlying districts like our own, the fact of Ins being sn little known will place hiin nt a
great disadvantage, and the support
accorded to him will depend in u great
measure on what views he holds ns regards some of the questions which
effect the electors iu n sense locally,
apart from the great question of Pro-
lection versus Free Trade,
Already (and it Is early in the sea
son) the fire fiend has found some mischief for bis idle bauds to du, at least
it would seem so, for to the enst of
here a fire is raging which hns already
burnt up many acres of beautiful
hunch grass, and will soon tniike its
way into the timber, Thu Authorities
should Iw on the elect, and if possible
make un example of one or two of this
pliips of offenders; or il is quite possible
Hint the same state of affairs may lie
repented us existed last year, when, besides devastating the ranges and forest,
much valuable property belonging to
settlers In different localities was de-
stroyed,

THE NEW GOVERNMENT,
The views of two of the leading
jotti'litils of the province are presented
for the edification of our readers touching British Columbia's new Government under the leadership of the Hon.
Mr, Turner;
"The Hon. Mr. Turner nnd his colleagues in the Government were sworn
In yesterday. The new Premier we
fully believe enjoys the confidence und
bus the good wishes of the grent majority of the Province. He is known
|u be nn honest man through und
through, His kindly nature und his
pleasant manner have made him
friends wherever he hits been. He en*
joys, ns he deserves, the fullest con-
t|ei|ce of bis party. Those who have
iii'tnd with him know that he is to he
depended upon implicitly. He is true
to Ilis principles ami staunch in Blip-
porting what he believes to he the
rigli'. Mr, Turner's knowledge of the
country is extensive. He knows what
are its wants, and there cuu ho no
doubt Unit he has the desire to do nil
that in him litis tn further ils advancement. Wo do not believe that British
Columbia bus to-day a wanner, a more
zealous or a more disinterested friend
than the gentleman who was yesterday placed ut the head of its Government,   We will be very greatly mis,
taken If his administration does not
prove both successful iiiid popular,
"Tlie Hon, Mr. i'lberls will, we
have fiddQllbt,da his best In show tlml
the Premier upule a wise selection
when he chose him Ut be Attorney-
I'mienil, He is kiinwn to lie un able
lawyer, und we believe thut he will
perform the duties of his high nfflee
iu such u way us to meet Ihe highest
expectations of his most sanguine
friends. The other members of the
Government are known tn be good
men and true, and will no'duiilit pep.
form their several duties ill »i|i-|| u way
as will make th« Tumor Administration ii memorable one in the annuls of
British Columbia,"—Colonist,

coincidence, to escupe the greul "sea
of troubles" which will soon surge remorseless round bis hapless colleagues |
who, with Hon, J. II. Turner, Minister
of Deficits, at their head, have closed
up their forlorn ranks in preparation
fur—the Deluge,
"We could wish Premier Turner
(whu bus certainly i u, ued his promo.
tion by length of service nud bv brain-
rocking struggles with incorpigiilile

so long sowing tn the wind, and which
with its must culpable member prudently escaped, has Just begun lo le-
volve in tlie outer circles of Unit fearful whirlwind in whose vortex it must
soon lie caught,
"Unlessnil the Indications full, we
nre afraid that Mr, Duvie will he followed into Ilis self-elected Nirvana by
the maledictions, not only of his lule
colleagues, but of the people ut large,
for the tribulations thut the Government and ihu country must shortly
reap as the result of the Duvie Administration's terrible sowing. A little
may be done in mitigation of the harvest, if the Tui-ner-Uliei'ts Government
should have the courage, even nt this
lute (lay, to make u firm right-about
face, This, they will be compelled to
do, shortly, liy the condition of the
Provincial' finances and credit; but
economy will not be.n virtue when it
is compulsory,"—Columbian,

THE  CYANIDE PROCESS,
A communication from W. Pellew
Hiirvey, manager of the Cussel Gold
Extracting Co., Vancouver, would Intimate that very little doubt exists but
thut the company will have one or
more cyanide plants at work In the
lower Okanagan before the end of the
suninioi-, ns negotiations ure nearly
perfected to that effect,
One or two eynnidc plants nt.work,
nml a few Crawford mills grinding
away on some of our rich gold ores,
would niter the bearing of some of the
miners und prospectors, nnd would
cause the reptesentatives of the large
smelling companies (who try for obvious reasons to make the minora believe Hint the ores of the sun minding
camps cannot lie worked except by
smellers) to change their tone, It may
confidently be predicted th.it within a
year or two, thousands of tons of ore
will be made to give up its precious
contents by these und other processes,
and still there will be nothing to fear
us regards a supply of ore for smelters.
There is plenty of room for nil, ns the
ore bodies are virtually unlimited,

The Catholics of the United'State's
who ure members of secret societies
have been called upon by the church to
withdraw from the same, ns it is contrary to the canons of lbe church thut
nny member shall belong to any secret

ully applies tn Ihe Masonic order,
It is quite possible Hint the near future will see the cities of Spokane,

Mr. A- K. Stuart of this paper, is nt
present paying a liusjupss visit to Clii-
tiago.
Mr. D. W. Mclntyre has completed
the purchase of the McCarren and Roy
■properties at. Boundary Falls.
The bridge at Ingram's will lie sufficiently completed to allow teams to
pass over it some time this week.
Mr. Edward Haine has opened lip
his barber shop iu town, and has in
connection with the same a stock of
stationery, notions, etc.
Mr. W. Riley, of Vernon, is Bpndlng
a few days iu town looking after liusiness in connection with the affairs of
Messrs. lliley k Donald, Kelowna.
Mr. .1. A. Coryell has received Instructions from Mr, Scott McRae to
survey his pre-emption on popper
creek. This is one of the Huest ranch
properties tributary to Boundary
creek.
Mr. W. B. Hickards came down from
the Douglas camp last week suffering
from rheumatism, caused, no doubt,
.from winking in damp places in the
mine. He is, however, speedily recovering, and will raturu to camp in a few
days.
Once again the surrounding hills are
made to echo the voice of Midway's
saw mill whistle. Sawing having commenced this week will be kept up for
the rest of the summer, as quite a (lain and for lumber is expected in the
town and throughout the surrounding
country.
Mr. T. Humphrey, who, a short time
since, wept out to Spokane for medical
treatment, returned a few days ago
looking hale, hearty and well. The
hoys were all glad to welcome him
back and to hear that lie hatl been successful in placing some interests iu
milling properties whilst away.
Mr. G. B. McAuley and Mr. Glover,
of Spokane, passed through on Friday
last on their way to Camp McKinney.
Mr. McAuley intimated that the company, of which he is one of the members, intends working the hydraulic
claim at the mouth of Rock creek as
sunn as the spring is sufficiently far
advanced.
St. Patrick's day will lie celebrated in
Midway by a grand ball in Palmerston
Hall, on Monday night, Mar. the 18th,
Citizens and friends in file neighborhood and from afar arc cordially invited. Good music will be in attendance,
and refreshments will be served to
those desiring same. A bit of green
ribbon and a light heart will insure a
joyous time to all.
Parties in this neigliborhond who,
whether for use or ornament, keep
hounds around their premises, should
see that the same are not allowed to
roam at their own sweet leisure, as
complaints are heard that they
are (-(instantly in the habit of running
deer. The harm that can he done just
at this time of year to the deer hy
these dogs can readily be understood by
sportsmen.
Mr. Miller, the mail contractor on
the Kettle river stage line, recognizing
the growing importance of his business and the necessity of furnishing
good accommodation, so as to induce
travel, has sent for a complete new
outfit of rigs, harness, etc., and when
the same arrives it is certain that the
line, which is the second longest mail
And express route in British Columbia,
will be equal to any other, if not first,
in its various appointments.
The Midway and Grand Forks stage,
Mr. Godfrey owner, having occasion
nn one day of last week to proceed to
Camp McKinney with passengers, was
unfortunate in losing a valuable horse,
whilst crossing Kettle river at the
Ingrini ford. The ice, which was
breaking up, allowed the team to break
through Into the river, and the horse
drowned being a spirited animal,
pluged around violently, and getting
his bend under the Ice, was dead lie-
fore assistance could lie rendered.
Mr. Davis, a new arrival here, went
a few days since into the hills to hunt,
taking with hitn a valuable saddle
horse. Arrived there he bad cause to
tie the horse to a tree, which he did by
using a rope around its neck. On coming back shortly after he found the
iiiiiinirl strangled to death, owing to
the knot of the rope having slipped up
flnto the back of the neck behind the
ears, causing tlie animal to pull back
and hang itself. I'be misfortune of the
individual oft .en times furnishes n lesson
to the many, and thu moral in this
cose for the careless ones Is, spend a
•dollar on a halter and save a hundred
dollar horse,
Mr. Cnryelle has started work laying out ten acres of the McCarren
ranch (being that portion situated at
Boundary Falls) into town lots of a
size 25 feet l,y 100 feet, which will be
put on the market as soon as tbe survey is completed. This -represents the
town of Boundary Falls In embryo,
and gives no idea of its size and requirements in the near future. The
balance of the property will lie laid off
and the town extended as occasion
may require. The new town, situated
as it is, with mining camps all around
it, has a bright future in prospect, and
being in the hands of good business
men, nothing will he left undone to
draw within its confines the trade of
the surrounding districts. Competitive towns must bestir themselves.
MlNUfU   MOTES.
Mr. Siiydiim, the now famous Boundary creek mine rustler, is at present
doing business nt Kansas City.
Mr, J. C. Haas a couple of days ago
located a claim of gold and silve.1 ore
within a short distance of Midway,
giving the name of Great Hesper to
the same.
It is generally understood that Mr.
Mclntyre will utilize the water power
at Boundary Falls to operate a saw
mill, also a ten-stamp mill'which he
intends erecting at that point this
spring. The ore from the Gem and
Butte claims will be treated at this
mill.
Captain Biirlmge i.s at Grand Prairie,
on his way Into Boundary, iu company
with two mining men. It will be remembered that lie obtained options
on the Helen and Last Chance properties when he was here about a month
ago, mid it is presumed ho now returns
to complete the purchase of the seme,
Mr, Boss and Mr. Robertson paid
Copper Camp a visit on Thursday last
lo look over the properly in which the
Parrett Smelter Company, of Butle,
has obtained a two-thirds interest, viz.,
the Enterprise claim. It is their intention to do a large amount of development wurk in the camp this summer,
The assay of recent samples of ore
sent to Vancouver for treatment by
cyanide and taken from the Great
Hopes, Helen and other claims, have
given very satisfactory results. Not
having obtained as yet permission
from the parties owning the properties to publish the assay values, we
refrain from doing so, pending their
consent.
Considerable development work will
be done this spring on the coal proper-
tics near Midway. This looks very
much as if in the near future this useful article will be in demand. In some
locations a coal mine is a veritable
gold mine to the fortunate owner, and
the owners of the above property, lie-
fore may years, may have this truth
brought home to them,
Mr. J. A. Coryell is at present engaged compiling maps of the different
milling cani|» tributary to Boundary
creek, which will show the location of
all claims in tbe said camps, as also
roads, trails, streams and other natural
features, Everything in connection
with claims, etc, will be accurately
laid down, so that the same may furnish a valuable reference to miners,
prospectors and capitalists. After
each camp has heen properly located it.
is his intention to combine all into oue
general map.
The Cassel Gold Extracting Co.
have increased the size of their plant
at Vancouver, having now a complete
working model. Anyone interested in
mining in this upper country, who
would take samples of ores witli them,
and is inquisitive enough to learn
something about this process, would
be shown the same in nil the different
stages of operation, and by actual
demonstration could be convinced of
its adaptability to extract gold and silver from the ore under treatment, if
they would take the trouble lo go
down to the coast.
In the description of the Lillooet
Fraser River and Cariboo Gold Field
Co.'s (Limited) property, in place of
ounces per ton we have cents per cubic
yard. This arises from the fact that
the property is alluvial and not quartz
mining. The deposits are estimated
to give a net profit of 20 cents pel-
cubic yard, and it Is stated that five
cents would give a profit. The land
acquired comprises 480 acres. The
capital is £50,1100. The main outlay is
for water power, for which £23,000 is
required. For other points the prospectus and report contained in it must

Mr. Mclntyre, who a short time ago,
paid a visit to Boundary Falls in company wilh Mr. Suydiini, returned again
on Inst Thursday's stage, bringing
with faint two gentlemen, one a Mr
Largey, President of tlie States Savings Bank of Butte, Mont., a gentleman who is largely interested in mining properties at various points on the
other side, as also here; and tbe other
a Mr. Palmer, a Montana mining man
and expert. These gentlemen, in company with Mr. Mclntyre, visited Dead-
wood camp on Friday, to look at the
Gem and other properties recently
bonded, and on Saturday, they proceeded to the Copper camp.
Mr, Parkes, whn is here as a representative of Boston capitalists, lias
made a location of a claim in Camp
McKinney, to the east of the Maple
Leaf, Thia same gentleman has been
engaged recently in making an examination of Mr. James Lynch's claim
the Maple Leaf, taking samples from
same, as also from several other claims
on the same lend. A request has been
made to the owners of the Eureka and
also the Alice and Emma claims by
their agents, to take the water out of
the shafts on these properties, so that
this gentleman may have an
opportunity to examine and sample
them.' It is quite within the bounds of
possibility that before the end of the
summer another large company will
be carrying on active mining opera*

In a sort of u glass cage, figuratively speaking, during the first third of his life. He
was 45 years old last 2,ovomlier,niid was put

MUSIC AS A MEDICINE.

Inn Sleep- A Cleinviiisii'. Knperleiicr.
Not till the last two or three years bus an
attempt been made u> bring music within
the range of practical therapeutics, ami to
test Its effects by systematic clinical Investigation, says Chamber's Journal. This
fact has Is'i'ii tnken in hand liy the Guild
of St. Cecilia, under the energetic nnd discriminating dlrsetlon of Canon Hartford
of Westminster, Already the society has
made a considerable number of trials and
Onion Hartford has recorded their results
,|u the medical journals. As a type of these
results we may quote Canon Hartford's
account of a visit to the Loudon temperance hospital and the St, Pancras infirmary: "The choir of the guild-comprising
three vocalists, sopniao, contralto and
baritone, nnd three Instrumentalists, first
and second violins nnd harp—visited the
hospital above mentioned. Several of the
patients appeared to In suffering much,
notably one whose leg hod been crushed iu
the railway, another afflicted with dropsy,
and who were shedding tears with great
nervous depression. The music lusted half
nn hour, and when it was over enquiry
was made of the patients. One und nil
said it luui soothed them, the patient who
suffered from dropsy remarking thnt the
pain hud kept off while the music was
being played, and returned when it
ceased."
At the St.. Pancras Infirmary there was
a patient suffering from melaiicholia, to
whom they played a lullaby. Afi.tr the
performance she toldanurse that she liked
It very much, "On this the superintendent ciime to me and snid: 'This is the first
time she has spoken In a fortnight,'
Shortly afterward a male pntient suffering
from delirium tremens wns brought into
the ward. On hearing the first notes of
the music he became quite calm and at*
tfiitlvc though his attendant had been half
afraid to bring him on account of out,
breaks of violence." The following day
Canon Hartford returned to the hospital
and found the three worst cases very much
brighter, end they spoke with gratitude
nnd very warmly of the benefit derived
from soft tn uaio.
Canon Hartford draws s distinction no-
Iween the class of music which should be
given to nllei.iite pain and to produce
sleep. In the latter case the music should
be, of course, very soft sod uiunolimous.
There should be a constant repetition of
similar phrases, and no striking or unexpected effects should be allowed. To distract the mind from pain—mental or physical—the music should be of s more attractive order, but still tott. Whether In
all cases soft music is better ns a medicine
than lively mid exhilartingairs has not yet
been clearly determined. Probably It
varies with each particular case, hut at
Any rate, with soft music one does not run
the risk of injuriously exciting the pntient,
which might possibly bo done by music of
a lively character. The softness must be
extreme. Canon Hartford remarks un the
difficulty of getting singers who can sing
very piano, and proposes to hnve them
trained with this particular object ia
view.
Criticism,
Professional Art critics are by no means
Hie only people whose opinions of pictures
sre worth hearing, ss many sn artist has
found out. Michael Herllhy bad his little
shop insured in a popular company and tbe
agent presented him with a highly colored
lithograph representing the burning of a
block of buildings,
Mr. Herlihy surveyed the picture for some
moments, muttering to himself the while.
At Inst he turned a dissatisfied face ii'kiii
the Agont,
"It's molality purty," he said, "but, it's
mesilf doesn't call It complete, sorr, not by
•■iny manes,"
"Indeed," snid the Agent. "What Is
wanting, Mr. Herllhy?"
"There's the bulldlns, nil might," said
Michael, "an' there's the foire Inghias, an'
the ladders, an' the horses, an' the shmoko
sn'cinders, There's the pnyplo riinniii'
sn' the fuii'i'ineii olliiibln' oop and doom
Uut," snid Mr. Herllhy, turning Ids back
on the painted cuiilliignitioii and confronting the insurance agent with an expression
of strong discontent, "who iver in the
w.'ide wurrhl saw a blither av that kolnil
goin' ou, All' not A hit av dog anywhere to
lie sane on the sthrnte, sorrf Who's the
man 't painted that plather. Ol'd like t'
be tuiild)" concluded Mr, Herllhy waxing
scornful, "He's got A few things to Para
before iver Im'll lie All Artlslu, tli'in think-
in'!"—Youth's Con)|ifiuion.

In many of the churches quaint and artless carols, with un less artless iicciuipaui-
nicnts coining from Another nge less fickle
than our own, are brought Into the service
of the midnight mass. After the mass Is
over thu ivvcillon is still held, even liy
those who no longer go to muss. This
nivclllou—the good old custom nf the
lifter midnight supper following the midnight mass at Chrlstmat eve-dies out
with difficulty from any Freiichiiiiin's Ini*
agination. Its material signs ure blood
sausage, truffled turkey and pnte de fole
gras, Its moral sign Is s temporary thawing of the loo of religious neglect, even
when the fete Is held by wild young men
In restaurants, In the Curly Christinas
morning when the dawn Is not. yet creeping up Vou will be roused, and roused
again by tho rattle nf enrriuge wheels und

Christmas day Is there.
