NOTES ON FAIRVIEW CAMP.
Witli nn Outline of tho Geological Features.
(CONTRIBUTED.)
Tbe formation of this camp consists
of a well defiued qunrtzite (nml occasional patches of syenite) Hanking ii
on either tide, The quartette belt, bo*
called, strikes ahout N. W, and ,S. E„
uml dips about 80 degrees N, B. Two
main quarlz veins run in ibis, lying
conformably with It, Quite extensive
wurklngfl havs been made on llieae
veins ut different point!,, llie main
properties being- Western Girl, Com*
et, and Evening Star, owned by Mr.
Steveusi thoSteiuwinder, by Slieeniiu
k Gwnikin; Silver Crown, owned
byBlewItt &Co.| the Morning Slur,
owned by Messrs. Mangott & McEach*
ran ; and the Brown Bear, Ontario,
Wyn M„ Battler, and Wide West,
owned by the Strathyre Mining Company, Ltd. Tlie lust two companies
are now operating,
These veins are more or less well
mineralized throughout with galena,
iron und copper pyrites, anil zinc-
blende, and curry free-milling gold,
The quartzlte is very highly micaceous, merging into mica schist.
Tbe quartzlte of tlie 'Wide West'appears to have been formed Independently of the rest of the belt, as its
stratification strikes nlioul fi. nnd W.;
but from microscopic sections made
recently from both quui'teltos, it
was fouud that uu old stratiflcnliou
was present in this, parallel willi that
of tbe main belt, and lhat it was therefore of thi same age, and Hint tbe
present stratification lind been caused
by later nietttinoi'phlsni, II, is qultean
interesting geological feature.
Tbe granite formation on either side
of the quartzlte is intersected with numerous veins. Many claims were recorded in the earlier days of the camp,
and considerable work done. For no
definite reason, 11 prejudice arose later
on against granite veins, and some of
the claims were abandoned, Confidence seemed to be re-established 1 his
spring however, und work was started
on two of the granite veins—on the
"Susie " by Messrs. Guess and White,
and on tbe Smuggler by Mr, T. Elliot,
shippt'd.l'u tlie' Tacoma smelter front
these properties, which by assay averaged over $100 per ton in gold and silver.
A shaft on the Smuggler is down some
80 feet, and lor tlie last few weeks bus
lieen going through .quartz full of visible free gold. Since work wns started
on these two claims, others have
awakened to the fact that the granite
veins are valuable, and work hns hem
done on the Sunflowei, by Mr. Gwat-
kin: on Ihu Bootblack by Mr. Boi-han;
und 011 the Buckhuru by Mr. Ware.
High grade ore has heen taken nut in
every case, and a shipment to a smelter is now being prepared from the
latter. Thauke to these efforts, granite veins nre assimiing quite an 'air of
respectability'in Fairview camp,

Tlio Horr-Harvey Douute.
Mr. Harvey concluded his arguments
for bi-inettclism with lhe following
statements; First, That gold and silver arc the money of the constitution,
Mr, Horr did not controvert this, and
I left it with Daniel Webster's dt'lini-
nltion to that effect, Second, That
the silver dollar was the unit of value
in our coinage system lined by the
act uf 187H. Mr. lion- admits this.
Third, That silver and gold were bulb
the meaures of values of. our property
until 18711 and lbe debtor hud the right
to pay iu either melal. Fourth, That
the act of 1878 was surreptitiously passed. Fifth, That for all the lime of
which we have knowledge gold and
silver were treated equally as money,
until 1810 when England closed her
minis to silver, and 1878-71 when Get*.
many, Fiance, the United Slates, and
the Latin Union followed, Sixth, Thut
the prices of all property are now measured hi gold alone nud are substantially at the present time one-half wbiil
they would he under the bi-uiettallc
system, Seventh, That there wen
$118,000,000 in silver coined in oul
minis prior to 1878,, all of which prim
to I8.il \vi|s primary monoy, and therefore shared equally with gold the demand for money, All silver coined
since 18711 has lieen token i ley,  and
is nut performing ihe functions of primary money, The following is nil ex*
cerpl of Mr. 1 Iiii-i-'s reply; I stated
Ilinl whenever a gold Ol' a silver mill
is being used us u measure of value,
llie one so used cnn he ah"!'■ or below
pur. This Is self-evident, Nowhere In
the debate or in the luminal y bus he
shown tho advisability of this nation
freely coining silver at Id to 1, nor can
he do it. His whole system is at war
with tlie best achievements of clvlliza.
Hon and dearly aims at ilie destruction of law, Individual development,

~MK. MARA AND THE POST-
OFFICE.
Mr. MABA, M.P visilcd this district
/or tbe first time, lbe early part of lust
week, arriving late at nighl Monday
and leaving oil !he Peiiliclon slage the
following day.
Notwithstanding the briefness of his
stay, Mr. Maiia wus certainly assured
of lhe general dissatisfaction expert
eneed by a large number of bis eonstit.
uents ancnt tlie wretchedly Inadequate
provisions made for ibe carriage of the
'mail, with which we arc. now obliged
lo he content.
Our member is blamed, and justly,
for the halfhearted manner with
which bn has urged the importance of
a better system upon the. departmentt
but it Is to'be hoped lhat his visit will
have convinced liini of the desirability
of making inure strenuous effort.
The policy which wu are told is
adopted by the department—(hough
perhaps necessary in an older province
—of governing the frequency of lhe
nnil delivery, and therefore the costof
carriage, according to Hie revenue derived from the post-office returns of
lhe district, does not commend itself
as tending to thu development of a
new country, The postal arrangements of the United States afford nu
opportunity for comparison by no
melius favorable to Lbe Canadian system, and au example of liberality anil
far-sightedness which might well he
imitated,
Common fairness, however, compels
us to mention Ihnt at any rate In oue
Instance, Hie .Government caunot he
'accused of parsimony. Qn the Ash-
croft-Cariboo mail route, Ihe large sum
oi $20,000 la' paid foil th,e service. The
distance certainly is considerable ; a
matter of some liOO miles, if we are correctly informed. At tlie same time it
is a very large amount when compared with the modest $1,500 which is
'pnid to Iheciintractoi-on the Pontic
110 miles, Mr, Mara explains tills-
somewhat startling contrast, by, saying that in thi former case, it wns ii
matter of agreement between the Federal and Provincial Governments,
Still it soeuis pertinent to enquire is
this arrangement to continue for all
time?
Mr, Mara's explanation as to tho
cause of Inspector Fi.KTi'HEit'n apparent inability to attend to his duties,
and failure to visit the districts not
immediately in the line of travel, is
hardly satisfactory. Surely if an official is unable, through ill-health to
perform his work, putting sentiment
ii.8i.lc, it is hardly desirable lhat lie
should bu retained in the position,
(hough due allowance aluui'.d be made
in a case of merely teuiporiry Indisposition,

A LIGHT SENTENCE.
/The, fine imposed on Charles Burbauk
of'$25 aud costs, by Justices McMynn
and Kerr, wns, we think, an exceedingly lenient sentence fur an offence
which, whatever else, was an act of
gross cruelty, and the offender may
congratulate himself that he has got
olf as easily ns he has. We have strong
grounds [or belief that lbe iniiglsji'iites
'would have had every right to com-
piitu man thus guilty for trial, nml
had they done sn we are not. sure that
lhey would have acted unwisely, That
a man, iu a country where animals are
tormented to such an extent witli flies,
should deliberately rob them of their
'only means of defence seems -ilinosl incredible ,and leaving out or" consideration,the loss I o owners—for the depnvn-
i ion of lailjaud mane necessarily detracts
from tiie iippeiu-uiicc nnd value of a
horse-- llle act should meet with the
strongest condemnation,
In this case, however, the fine may
nl least havu the good effect of preventing the recurrence uf tho offence,

iKrom our own corroKlioiiileiil.l
The fire bell arrived last, week and
wus hung close to Ihe lire hall, which
is the must central position. The bell
weighs 1,200 pounds, nnd should make
noise enough to arouse, every person
within the city limits.
The Vernon Hour mills were running
a few days lust week iu order to supply
flour for local dealers who were out,
and did not wish to import any more
American flour. They will probably
start again about Ihe 1st of September
lo run steadily.
About two weeks ago several of our
liusiness men came into possession of
some counterfeit fifty cent pieces
through current circulation. Various
opinions were expressed at tile linn* as
to who could have been thu maker of
this coin, nud suspicion seemed to rest
very strongly on a person mimed Jos,
Smart, who bus heen a resident of
Vernon for over two years, until recently hi* left for Rossi,uul. A warrant
was accordingly issued for liis arrest,
and Constable Park proceeded to Russian'!, hut failed to lind him there, He
left (he warrant with tlie constable at
Revelsloke, who succeeded iu finding
and arresting Mr. Smart, who was
brought In Vernon lust week by Mr.
Graham, the government agent at
Re'.-elsloke. On Tuesday at % p, m.
he was brought before Mr. Price Ellison, S. M., nnd a number of witnesses
appeared against, him, Mr. Thomas
Milne, tho first witness, staled that
llle prisoner had la'en in possession of
the building on the corner.of Seventh
and Schubert streets (mined by Mr.
W, F. Cameron am) himself) since
February, 1891, He also staled that
Mr. Smut'] bad never given any notice
of aquiltul to himself or Mr. Cameron,
and thut he was in arrears for rent.
Constable Parke staled that lie had
been given informal ion last winter to
the effect that Mr, Smart had at some
former time been engaged in making
counterfeit colli, aiid he hud been advised lo look out for him in the event
of any such coin being circulated in
Vernon. Guided by this -information,
he at once proceeded to search lhe
premises that had been occupied by
Mr. Smart, and siuiceeded'in finding a
plaster mould lhat corresponded ip
size with the' coin's. He also found
metal, which Mr. J. B. Jacques (wdio
was called us a ivitu.esa) testified w.as
Whicli, "he said, was'a'niixlure of tin
and., lend. Ainiilier important ..discovery ,m ido was u buttle Mint lih.il
formerly cu'i,luined nitrate of silver.
As shown by the lube!, (he bottle had
been purchased from Mr. j. 8. D.oni'.ld-
son, druggist, Barnard uvunue, who
was accordingly culled up and testified
as to having soli| the buttle. 'Cp,!i!aiiiiiig
nitrate of silver to the prisoner some
time previously. Mr, E. Harris wus
then culled, am| stated. Hint on
the night of the lllh of July,as he was
on his way home, be saw a light i'u the
shop where Mr. Smart, worked, and,
thinking tlie placi was an fire, run
up to the window and thrust aside
the blanket which was up before it nnd
saw tlie prisoner inside standing by a
lie, which was burning un top of a
pile of brick, resembling n small forgo.
Seeing that the building was union
lire be left iind thought no more of il.
Several othei witnesses stated that
they had heard the prisoner state
(when under the Influence of liquor)
that he could make coin us good as the
genuine, or knew where it could be
inkle. After ull lhe evidence had been
inken, the prisoner was asked if he
had anything, tu suy, lo which he replied that he had not anything more

LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
Mr. C. E. Stuart is building a residence at Qrand Forks.
Mr. Sutherland is installed as tin
flew school teacher at Grand Prairie
>nd so far is very generally liked.
Mr. R. Christiansen and family, new
Arrivals from Waihiugton territory,
have pre-empted a rauel) near Boundary Falls.
Mr. G. A. Rendell is having lumber
liauli'il from the Midway sawmill and
intends making an addition to ills
.store at Bimntlary Falls.
Besides burning up a large extent of
good range, the recent, bush fires at
•Grand Prairie destroyed over a mile of
fence for Manley Bros,
On last week's stngc Miss Nuliy,
..lister to Nuliy Bma. of Grand Prairie,
left on a trip tn friends in Manitoba,
after visiting whom she will proceed
(to England,
The bulk of Grand Prairie crops are
gathered in, and hy the number of
.slacks of grain and hay to be seen on
the several ranches, we should say tlie
.owners have little to grumble at.
A shoemaker came to town on
Thursday last and since his arrival has
Jbcen busily engaged gobbling or cobbling up our soles, and at a greater
rate than our local preacher does.
Mr. P. B. Nelson went out last week
and returned on Thursday, bringing
with him his uncle, 0. B. Nelson, of
Spokane, and four cousins, who will
.make a pleasure trip through tlie
.country.
Mr. and Mrs. Sherringhnni are the
happiest couple iu the Kettle River
.district just at present, ind the cause
of it all is the advent of a fine little
girl baby into the home circle on the
«orth fork of Kettle River.
Mr. Huin is increasing liis slock at a
rapid rale, and tie trust, his enterprise
will be duly appreciated, There arrived
" last week aniinilier of capital clucks, a
case of spectacles, and an assortment of
fishing tackle, all of which should sell
well.
C. De B. Green, P.L.S., is engaged
■surveying the Penticton-Grand Forks
wagon road, making measurements,
,«nd establishing mile posts along Its
entire length, which, to say the least,
will be a source of satisfaction to the
pedestrian.
Sp.ncerBron, are energetically pushing nu l)i« work uplin a hotel which
■lhey are -huildln*,' on Ihe summit of
Boundary iijpunlaiu. When this is
completed and ready lo receive customers, it will be a great convenience
,o travelers.
Recently bush fires have been very
prevalent, and as a consequence our
local constable has been very much oil
the aleit, the result of which last week
was the issuance of a summons upon a
plan named Curtis, who recently pre-
einpted a ranch upon Myers creek.
The evidence must havo been of a very
convincing character, for he preferred
to saeri Hue his prospects in tho country,
going across the line, rather than face
ourJ'a P.
We are glad to be able to state that
Mr, Leonard Norris, the government
^kgont at Vernon, proposes to visit this
district in the course of a week or so,
and extend his stay beyond the usual
time of an official visit. We have
.every reason to believe that when Mr.
Nnrrin sees for himself bow badly
roads are needed into the camps, he
will use all his influence to obtain the
necessaiy appropriation from the
government for the purpose,
Among the visitors here last week
were Mr, Macintosh, and Mr, Graham,
manager of the Hudson's Bay company, both of Ijainliiups, and Mr. (J.
A, Henderson, of tbe Bank of Mont-
pal, Vernon. Messis. Gnham all d
Macintosh had nit traveled in these
parts before, anil they were greatly
taken with the country. J|t- (milium
thought that the merchants on the
coast should make more elfort to
secure our trade, but when he was in:
farmed tliat the nigh freight rates of
the C, P, R, have hitherto made it
pheaper for us to deal with Spokane,
paying duty and carriage on tlie 8,
find N. railway, he was naturally
taken aback and promised tn represent
the state of affairs to Mr. Mai.. Brown
and Mr, Marpole of the C. P. II. in a
very strong light.
Lord Lyllon enmpares In one of his
hunks the life of the traveling tinker
as the next best tiling to the life of the
gentleman of leisure, hut tlie phonograph had not been invented in those
days, «)«o we think tlie comparison
would not have been made. The life
pf the gentleman whu carries, for lhe
edification of tlie public, a phonograph
among his luggage is surely little less
than ideal. The owner earns n, hand -
some income with the least possible
exertion to himself; he never need
grow tired of living in one spot; lie
works or not as he pleases, and he lias
the satisfaction pf knowing that he is
a public benefactor, Such an individual was in Midway Inst week, antl
|ie earned as much in two nights as
(he farmer earns in three months or
i|ie printer iu six.
Messrs. Morrison k Mi-Clinl.m-k have
goneoul to Colville to fetch in an outfit
for the purpose of working their new
properties, which they propose developing with ti sixty-foot shaft.
Mr, Fowler Isstuylngnt Ilm Boundary
lintel for a few days, enjoying a brief
rest after having made a very exhaustive examination uf some of the principal properties iu tlie camps.
ltock is lieing hauled to the Fttirview
mill from the Brown Bear claim, and
shortly the stamps will unci' .again proclaim with a rumbling voice that the
Strathyre Mining Co, is still In Ibe laud
ol the living.
Morrison k McCllntock's strike between Copper and Deadwood camps Is
attracting a great dent of attention and
many have lieen heard to declare it one
of the host, things that lias been found
this Hummer,
A large number of claims are being
located up the North Fork uf Settle
River in and around Brown's camp,
and another camp that is receiving attention is Prior camp on Prior creek,
a tributary nf Boundary, which heads
toward Summit camp.
The samples sought fnr Ihe Bureau
of Mines are accumulating atthultecoi-d
office here, among which may he noticed
some fine ore from some of the principal claims in the district. When it.
gets to Vict oria, people at the coast will
know more about what our country can
produce.
Mr. IVniberton of Rock Creek hns, we
uudursland, in company wilh tlie
deputy sheriff of Okanogon county,
Wash., discovered it yery big property
in the neighborhood, The exact location isas.icret. Tne ledge, he says, is
between 20 and 30 feet wide. Assays
were made in Midway, and the returns
show $70 in gold and 23per cent, copper.
£Tlie American Boy and American
Girl, two claims located upon Hardy
creek litis summer by Mr. C. C. Sands,
and subsequently partly disposed of tu
Indiana parties, among whom is lhe
celebrated Studeliaker, the wagon-
maker, are now under development,
turning out some Hue looking ore,
whicli, up to the present, is of a free
milling character. It is more than
likely a mill will be erected upon these
claims in the near future.
CRUELTY TO ANIMALS.
A Clnoh With a Toil to It and a Tull
With a Clutli to It.
Considerable interest was manifested
iu a cruelty to animals case which was
lieiV'd before Justices W. McMynn and
J. Kerr on Friday afternoon, when
(Jeorge Burbank answered to a summons, charging himself and brother
Charles wilh mutilating it horse ;hj*
pulling the hair uut of its tail, the
hoiae being the property of one G.:
Wells, a rancher of Boundary Creek.
Tbe Burbank brother-fare also Vatieh-
ers of the neighborhood, they having
settled hero this spring, and it would
soeui among their, or rather his, various occupations, for thu evidence
tended to show that Charles only was
guilty of Ihe act complained of, is that
of making hair ropes, cinches, etc.,
and for this purpose it would seem
he hits been in.the habit at furnishing
a necessary stock iu trade by taking
from the range certain horses and pulling all the hair out nf their tails by
the roots, to say tho least, nn extremely cruel practice, especially in
a district like this, where the flies that
worry animals are su plentiful, The
brother Charles, feeling no doubt that
the tale to be unfolded by tho witnessed
in the, case would, iu the end, have a
cinch to it, thought it advisable on
Thursday evening tu stop across the
line and await developments in the
case,
C. I,. Thomet, acting as special
constable, having been sworn, ti*s tilled
to having duly served the summons
upon each of the accused,
Alma Hopper, tho Hrst. witness in
the case, testified to having seen one
of the accused, viz., Charles', on or
about Hie 23ud of July, drive a band of
horses past her father's house toward
his own ranch. Among the band she
recognized tlie horse owned liy Mr.
Wells. This wus about 2 o'clock in the
afternoon, aud she was positive tlie
horsu then had its tail intact. About
(1 o'clock the same evening she saw the
horses return frum the direction of
Qurhank's ranch, and tlion noticed t he
particular animal was minus a tail,
II. Hopper, father of the previous
witness, said that baingatllie Burbank
bouse one tjay.lie was asked hy Charley
who the pinto mare belonged tu that
was running around tho place, and replied he did not know, Imt thought
sho belonged tp a man by the name of
Wells. He, the accused, then saitl he
believed lie would cut her tail olf,
Yesterday he was |i|-esc||t with several
others when the accused (Charles) confessed to having ct|t the tail off Wells'
horse and another one, a sort-el, and he
did nut, care who knew 11,
George Burbank—Did my brother
not say ho trimmed the horses' talis
when I was not there?
Witness—Yes,
F. Davis, sworn, corroborated the
former witness' statement as to what
Charley liad said tho day before in conversation.
After a short consultation, tho justices determined to inflict, a fine of $25
and costs or one month's Imprisonment upon Charley, nnd dismissed the
brother George, as nu evidence had
been hroiighl against him,
.... ...., ,..-.,    „ I, (I ..,,,. .11 Alt A.
Mr. .'Iuu was interviewed on Tins
day Inst, by a representative of the
Advance with regard to the mall-carriage question, Being asked why, afler lenders had been called for, action
had not lieen taken, he replied :
"Tenders were culled for a bi-weekly
service on the supposition that tlie expense of I he additional  service  would ;
uut much exceed $1100.   Mr. A.  Iv.
Stuart assured mu Hint' this would lie |
Ihe case, and it was afterwards found;
that he had either been misinformed,
or had misunderstood his Informant."
"But granting this lo be Ihe case, is
the extra expense so greatas to overbalance llle necessity for the improved
service?"
The expenditure is generally regulated by llle postal revenue. The revenue frum this route is very small.
The gi eater part of the mail goes tu
the United States, and lbe pusttige is
paid in American stumps."
"Do you not think that it would lie
a wiser policy if the Government took
a broader view of the mailer and considered the developinenl of the country
of more importance than the question
of revenue, l rusting to the future to be
repaid fur their greater liberality ?"
" Undoubtedly."
" Is it, not a fact that $20,000 is paid
to tlie inail*contractors ou tlie Caribiio
route, which Is certainly not more than
thrilile the distance uf Ihe Penticton
route ?"
"Yes: hut the reason of this is, that
Ihis sum was paid before confederation, and it was stipulated that it
should continue to be paid by the Dominion Government."
"Proportionately, is the revenue derived from the post-offices on the Cariboo route greater or less than that
which is derived from ours?"
"Ihelieve, less,"
"It is very necessary that our stage-
line should not end at Grand Forks,
hut continue on tu Marcus so as to
make an official connection with the
Spokane and Northern Railway.
Could this not be done ?"
"At present we are not allowed to
carry our mails through United States
territory, but I have talked with Mr,
Manley on the subject, nnd be has
promised tp correspond with Senator
Wilson, to whom lie is personally
known, and arrange if possible for an
exchange,"
"Another want keenly felt is a
postal money-order office, hnw can I liis
be obtained?"
"If someone in the district will
write mo a letter making the request-,'
I can promise you t|iat it will, be
grunted."
"A good deal of dissatisfaction i9«Xr
pressed lhat Inspector Fletcher, has.
never yet taken the trouble' 'to visit!
this district, nor to find Out 'What"*,
really required. Are his duties so onerous?" -  ■- -
"InspectorFletcher is one of the
hardest winked officials probably in
tlie province, and the worst abused.
He bus suffered under a great disadvantage lately having been troubled
with a nervous affliction uf the eyes;
which has confined liini for a month at
a lime to a darkened room ; and lie has
been obliged to hear letters read to
him and to dictate the answers."

A young Irishman in want of a Ave*
pound note wrote to his uncle as follows: "Dear Uncle—If you could see
how I blush for shame while I am
writing, ynu would pity me. Do you
know why? Because I have to
you for a few pounds, and do not know
how to express myself. Ii is impossi
ble for me to tell you. I prefer to die.
1 send you this by messenger, who will
wait, for au answer. Believe me, my
dearest uncle, your most obedient and
affectionate nephew, . P. S.—Overcome with shame for what I have
written, I have lieen running after the
messenger in ordet to take Ihe letter
from him, hut I cannot catch him up.
Heaven grant Unit something may
happen to stop him, or Hint my letter
may gel lost." The uncle was naturally touched, but was equal to the
emergency. He replied ns follows
"My dear Jack—Console yourself, nnd
blush no longer. Heaven has heard
your prayers. The, messenger lost
your letter,   Your affectionate uncle."

RELIGION AND TOBACCO.
The experiment of making tobacco
an ally of religion is being tried in
London, and Hie originators of the
scheme are confident uf success. The
London correspondent of The Sun,
New York, gives Hie followiugaccoiinl
of the new institution: "The invitation to partake of a free smoke al,
Christ Church chapel in the East, end
lust, Sunday was responded to by more
than two hundred men, who are the
poorest of the poor. A few came smoking. Others carried a pipe in their
mouths with lhe bowl inverted to denote emptiness, The gentleman who
was to conduct the service, and who
himself blew a cloud from a brier-root,
commenced to distribute, the tobacco.
It was dope economically, bul each recipient received enough to Illl two
pipes. By the lime ull were served,
and plentiful wreaths of smoke were
curling roofwiird, several ladies who
were there to assist in the service look
seats oo the platform, and the religious pari, of lhe proceedings began.
First there wau liiayei-ful exhortation, und though apparently it was attentively listened to, it was curious to
see the pipe bowls and tobacco-smoke
half screened with one hand while the
eyes were reverently covered by the
other."
"Then there was n hymn, In which
the female portion of Hie congregation
joined, but not many of lhe men, it being difficult to smoke and slog nl. Hie
same time, They wore ns quiet and
orderly as could be desired, Afler Ibnl
came what lhey evidently enjoyed
mure than ull olsn—a hymn sung with
much sweetness hy a lady. Probably
lhey.would not have ventured lo applaud ii, hut as the chairman, who sl ill
nulled his hrier. flapped bis bands,
lhey ull followed With great vigor,
their faces testifying how much they
were in enrni'sl." Shortly lifter this,
lllO linillcil allowance of tobacco having been smoked .nit, the proceedings
lerininaled wilh lm  nnd  cake.
