There is great activity in tho Aius-

the staking of claims is being kept up.
Over 100 claims have been staked.

On another of his claims the gravel
panned as high as $1.
The Nolson .Miner says: "The ex-
citoment regarding the Rover creek
placers continues unabated and there
lias been a regular stampede of prospectors to tho ground to secure claims.
Parties returning to the city report
that the creek is alive with people and
that in a fow days the entire ground
will be staked. As the placer mining
laws allow 72 hours after location and
24 hours for every 10 miles distant,
only a small proportion of the claims
staked has as yet been recorded, but
Tuesday the staff in the recorder's
oflice wore up to their eyes in work.
The claims that are being worked are
turning out richer every day, and
large cash offers are being constantly
refused by the confident claim owners.

Hon. 17 Gi Prior, ( onvonor, B. C, Lib-
oral Conservative Con volition, Vancouver, B. O.
Dear Sir,��� Allow uie to express to
you and, through you, to the Liberal
Conservative convention, my deep regret that owing to illnoas, 1 will ho unable to be present on the 1st, and 2nd
pro.x. Through a life time I have supported the party which has had faith
in the possibilities of this country and
the capacity of its people to legislate
for themselves regardless of tho trade
or other policy of their neighbors. I
have supportsd that party for tho reason that I believe it* policy was best
calculated to consolidate the British
possessions in America, to develop the
great latent resources of Canada and
eventually to build up a nationality on
this continent which will be the leading factor in maintaining^ British supremacy the world over.     Alter two
periods of Liberal rule, or i ather misrule, 1 am firmly convinced of the
soundness of my early conceptions, and
feel that if ever thero were an occasion
on which the great Conservative party
required ti be united and vigorous in
ihc interests of the country that occasion is at hand. With every Liberal
ante-election pledge violated���with a
rapidly growing bonded indebtedness;
a current expenditure equalled in the
history of this country; with certain
departments being ^exploited in tho interests of the party or tho party
friends; with men in close touch with
ministers of the Crown, trafficking in
special privileges granted by these
ministers, with an administration oi
our great, gold fields so pernicious and
laloue as to make every Canadian
'is head for very shame of the
Canadian civil service, it is high time
;i,ut a thoroughly organised party
should stand firmly, unitedly and determinedly for the country, the honor
and success of which we all hold so
den-. To this end, I heartily welcome
the calling of this convention, and I
wish it unqualified success. Lot our
aim bo 'Union and Organization,'
thorough and complete, and success
will be for the party that has ever de-
dared 'Canada for the Canadians.'
Believe me, faithfully yOUj*s,
(Signed)   1). H. Wilson."

Interesting Statistics Snowing How

Geo. Johnson, the government statistician, has calculated   Ihe drink bill of
Canada for 1800 at 10.90 per   head   for
every man. womnn and child, or a total
of835,293,06*1.    These  figures  he  arrives at by taking the average price ol
u drink at 74 cents, and us a  gallon ol
spirits contains   ",'i   drinks   it  would
yield $6.62}. The consumillion of 2,794,-
022 gallons at this pi-ice means an <���<:'-
lay   to   the   consumer   of   1.5,715,3?.
Of beerthe annual  consumption is K
306,804 gallons, at 5 cents a drink and

New York, Sept 0.���A dispatch to the
Herald from Washington says:
At least $17,000,000 in prize money will
lie distributed among sailors as a result
of the war with Spain. Mule than a hulf
of this award will be in accordance with
that section of tlie law providing for the
payment of bounty to persona aboard the
vessels that sunk tho Spanish lleet.
Although nut a penny of prize money
has yet been turned into the treasury
Judge Advocate Lemley and his chief
clerk, Mr. Hanna, are engaged in considering the various claims for prize money
that have been filed hy the officers und
nii'ii, and in passing upon the various
questions which have arisen.
Prom the official report of Admiral
Montojo, commanding the Spanish lleet
at Manila, there were 1875 persons aboard
his ships. The bounty amounts lo 1)1187,-
500, which congress'will he asked to appropriate dining the coming session. One-
twentieth of this sum belongs lo Rear
Admiral Dewey, commander-in-chief, and
he will therefore be $11375 richer thun lie
was before the war.
sninjiNon'M  iuk Share.
Rear Admiral Sampson has realized a
snug little fortune as a result of the war.
As commander-in-chief of the North Atlantic lleet he will get one-twentieth of
every prize taken hy the North Atlantic
lleet and one-twentieth of the head money
allowed for the vessels destroyed oil' San-
lingo and in Cuban ports, it is estimated
I hut he, will finally receive about $40,000
as his share of prize money.
in determining the amount of head
money due ollicers and men it will hi;
necessary lor the department to decide
whether a vessel destroyed is superior or
inferior to her antagonist, If the latter
the American ship will be entitled to $200
lor each person on board the enemy. Of
course this will swell the aniount of prize
money due the admiral.
it is estimated that, including the Mercedes, sunk ut thc mouth of the harbor
of Santiago, there were 2402 persons on
board   the   Spanish    lleet   destroyed    by
Sampson's command, which wa�� superior
to Ihe enemy and the amount of head
money due the lleet will consequently aggregate $240,200. Besides these ships
Spanish men-of-war were sunk al llanza-
nillo, Nipe and other points along the
Cuban coast, the destruction of whicli
each means a prize for the ollicers and
men participating in the work.
Many Questions (o  Settle.
Legal ollicers of the department will
lu- requested to determine whether merchant vessels carrying guns in their hold
like tlie Santo Domingo, which wus sunk
by tin- Eagle, come within tlie meaning of
tiie section providing for the payment
of bounties for persons on board. These
question may delay the adjudication of
amounts due ollicers and men interested.
'lim department was notified a few days
ago by Judge Locke of Florida that he
would  turn  into  the   treasury    the    net
amount resulting from  the sale of the
cargo of conl on hoard the British tramp
steamer licstorinel. The notification was
subsequently withdrawn.
Tlie lli'sliuiiii'l's case is the furthest ad-
vnni-i'il of any prizes. Owners of the j
great majority of the raptured vessels j
have taken appeals from the courts which
have condemned their ships us prizes and
it Mill he many months before the su-
picnic court of the United Stales is able
to pass on them.

The Turner combination in the Le Roi
won a decided victory iu the courts of
British Columbia Inst week. Judge Irving, of tlie supreme court of the province, discharged Receiver Carlyle, who
hnd been appointed hy County Judge
Spinks on petition of Hie Hritish America
Corporation, and declined to appoint another receiver.
The following telegram, received from
Senator Turner, brought the first news of
the decision:
Vancouver, li. C, .Aug. 31.���The court
discharged the receiver, on the ground
that the county court judge was without
power to appoint. Daly, solicitor for
the il. A. C, then tiled a new suit, with
tlie Le Koi company and live trustees as
plaintiffs, and four trustees as defendants,
and asked for nn injunction and receiver,

saying that he had nothing to do with
the internal management of the company,
but granted a temporary injunction, until Wednesday, against making the output more than lull tons daily. Plaintiff

from completing ihe purchase of the
stock contracted for by the B. A. C. This
injunction has been granted until the

strike of plater gold hud heen made on
Rover creek, which Hows into the Kootenay river near Slocan Junction, uhout
lo miles from the city. Several parlies
went out to inevstigute und returned
with reports of rich lliids. The Spokesman-Review correspondent visited the
scene of opera!iuus yesterdny nnd found
the creek alive with prospectors and llic
ground staked for fully four miles up.
There are over 200 locations of 100 feet
square ulready iiiade. The Discovery
claim was located on Ihe wesl fork of
Rover creek August 2;i hy Mint in Anderson, George W. Madden and W'nsh. I'.

over the ground downs of times before.
While going along' the river lied they
found a small nugget. Thoy began to
pun and succeeded at a depth of two
feet in getting values to the extent of $1
per pan. On almost every claim located
good colors huve lieen found.
On the South Half.
Mining men are being encouraged by
the increased values being secured on the
soutli half of the Colville reservation.
For the first 30 days after the opening
of the south half it seemed almost impossible to secure assay values greater than
from $2.50 to $4 or even $5, with some
rare exceptions. These returns were all
secured from the croppings and it seemed
doubtful whether there was a single
property on the south half worthy of being located. However, some work has
been done and it is not unusual now to
hear of from $20 to $150 assays, and any
numlier of leads are said to be showing
an average sample from $15 to $30.

The Minister of Wnr Resigns lle-
eiiiiNe the Dreyfus Cane III to Be
Hevlsed on Account of the Henry
���'"ornery���Very Weak Arguments
From Him.
Paris, Sept. 5.���M. Cavaignac Saturday
sent the following letter of resignation to
M. Brisson, premier and tlie president of
tlie council:
"I have the honor to send you and beg
you to transmit to the president of the
republic my resignation as minister of
war. There exists a disagreement between us, which being prolonged, would
paralyze the government at a time when
it most needs full unity of decision. I
remain convinced of the guilt of Dreyfus
and am determined as heretofore to combat a revision of the ease. 1 do not intend to shirk the responsibility of tlie
present situation, but I can not assume
it without being in accord with the chief
of the government to which I have the
honor to belong."
These are tho circumstances which led
M. Cavaignac to resign: After the discovery of Lieutenant Colonel Henry's
forgery the government sought means to
reassure the public. The question of revision wus broached. Certain ministers
believed the time had come to throw full
light und to establish every responsibility. M. Cavaignac strongly objected. He
declared that he was convinced of the
guilt of Dreyfus.
M. Brisson vainly pointed out to M.
Cavaignac that the revision would be
purely judicial.
M. Cavaignac replied that revision
could only be justified if some new fact
developed to show that there hau been a
judicial error and that no such fact existed, Henry's forgery being subsequent
to the conviction of Dreyfus and only indirectly connected  with  it.
Jl. Bourgeois, called from Switzerland,
made a new effort but M. Cavaignac
still refused. The latter saw M. Brisson,
the premier, and declared that his determination was immovable and that he
would resign. After M. Cavaignae's departure, a conference wns hold at the ministry of Hie interior between M. Brisson,
Minister BourgedTs and M. Sarricn. About
0 o'clock Ms Cavaignae's letter of resignation was received. lt*is assumed that
a majority of the cabinet accept the views
of M. Brisson as the others retain
their portfolios. The resignation of M.
Cavaignac enables the government to decide tlie matter and it is believed M. Cav-
aignnc's successor at the war office will
soon be appointed and a definite resolution taken.
I'onulare  Inflamed.
Tho Dreyfus agitation is not abating.
The populace was again inflamed today
by posters, printed by Siecle, with which
the town has been plastered. They reproduce two letters which Dreyfus wrote
lo the minister of war in 1804 and one
which he wrotu to his counsel, De Mage,
in 1805, protesting innocence and denying
that he ever had been guilty of any indiscretion. The potters also deal at length
with the fact that Colonel Pirquarl wrote
on July 0 affirming the falsity of Lieutenant Henry's documents, and they decry the arrest and iriprisonment of l'ic-

a death blow to Mahdiam.
Roughly, our losses were 200, while I
thousands of the Dervishes were killed
and wounded. Last night the Anglo-
Egyptian army encamped at Aguiza, eight
miles from Omdurman. The Dervishes
were three miles distant. At dawn the
cavalry patrolling toward Omdurman discovered thc enemy advancing to the attack in battle array, chanting war songs.
Their front Consisted of infantry and cavalry, stretched out for three or four miles.
Countless banners fluttered over their
masses and their copper and brass drums
resounded through the ranks of the savage warriors who advanced unswervingly
with all their old-time ardor. Our infantry formed outside the camp. On the
left were the First battalion of Northumberland ftisilecrs, the Second battalion
Lancashire fusileers and the First bat-
tulion grenadier guards with the Maxim
buttery, manned by the Royal Irish fusileers. In the center were the First bat-
tulion Warwickshire. F'irst battalion
Cameron Highlanders and the First battalion Warwickshire, F'irst battalion

artillery under .Major Williams. On our
right were the Soudanese brigades, commanded by Oeneral Maxwell and General
McDonald. The Egyptian brigades held
the reserves and both flanks were supported by .siaxini-Nordenfeld batteries.
At 7:2Q a. m. the enemy crowded the
ridges above the camp and advanced
steadily in enveloping formation.

At 7:40 our artillery opened fire wliich
was answered by the Dervish riflemen.
Their attack developed on our left and
in accordance with their traditional tactics they swept down the hillside with
the design of rushing our flunk. Hut the
withering fire maintained for 18 minutes
by all our line frustrated the attempt
and the Dervishes, balked, swept toward
our center, upon which tbey concentrated
a fierce attack.
A large force of horsemen, trying 'o
face a continuous hail of bullets from the
Cameron Highlanders, the Lincolnshire
regiment and the Soudanese, wus literally swept away, leading to the withdrawal
of tbe entire body, whose dead strewed
the field.

The bravery of the Dervishes can hardly be overstated. Those who parried the

rocky eminence and the Egyptians, hitherto in reserve, joining thc firing line. In
10 minutes and before the Dervishes could
drive their attack home, the flower of the
khalifa's army was caught in a depression
and within a zone of withering cross-
lire from three brigudes, with the attendant artillery. The devoted multilists
strove heroically to make hendwuy, but
every rush was stopped, while their main
body waa literally mown down by a sustained deadly cross-fire.

dense masses gradually melted to companies and the companies to driblets be*

broke and lied, leaving the field white
with the jibbuh-clnd corpses, which liko

At 11:15 the sirdnr ordered an advance
and our whole force in line drove the
scattered remnant of the foe into the desert, our cavalry cutting oil their retreat
to Omdurman.

Among the chief incidents of the battle was a brilliant charge by the Twenty-
first lancers, under Lieutenant Colonel
Martin. Galloping down on a detached
body of thc enemy they found the Dervish swordsmen massed behind and were
forced to charge home against great odds.
The lancers charged through and kept
the Dervish horde at bay. Lieutenant
Grenfelt, nephew of Sir Francis Grenfelt,

with being better informed on the
Anglo-Russian question than any man
living, he having spent considerable
time in studying it on the spot: therefore he will doubtless make an ideal
viceroy, and being an anti-Russian
man we may look 'for a decidedly bold
policy in the direction of the Pamirs
and Afghanistan, where it is sadly
needed in view of the vacillating policy that, has marked the home governments for some years past.

The following changes in the British
Columbia mining laws should be carefully studied by those interested in
mining in this Province:
First of these refers to the location
of fractions. In nil fractions surveyed
from now on, whether staked correctly
or not, tho surveyor may adopt the
boundary lines of the surrounding
claims, provided no side exceeds 1500
feel in length. In other words, the locator is entitled to the vacant ground
that ho claims, even If ho does not
stake it ii. inch a manner as to include
it all, whit ti he seldom does.
By a recent decision of tho courts a
prospector lost a claim because of inability to securo tho post necessary to
mark the location. The amendment
provides that in cases where claims are
staked above the timber line, or the
prospector can not secure the necessary posts, ho may erect monuments of
earth or stone.
In staking an extension the posts aro
often planted so as to form a wedge-
shape fraction between two ends of tho
two claims. Those fractions have often incurred groat expense, not only in
recording and surveying, but in cases
where they carry the lead, and thus become of such value as to promote litigation. Tbe amended act authorizes
tbo surveyor to include sueb fraction,
provided it does not cover more than
51.66 acres, the area of a full claim,
and provided further that two location
posts aro together.
By failure to record assessment work
within the required period of one year,
either tlirougli oversight or the ml.*
understand ing of partnership interests.
valuable claims have been lost. Now!
if a prospector fails to record the work
within a year, he has .'III days' additional time in which to make the record by
payment of an extra $10, provided that
the work is done within tho year.
Another change regarding tho assessment work is in that particular
which called for work to the amount of
$100 eaob year. Now, a miner can do
and record as many assessments as he
pleases in a year by paying tho recording fee tor each assessment dono to the
extent of $100.
In ease anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of improvement and crown grant, the contestant
must have his claim surveyed immediately and file a plan made and signed
by au authorized provincial land surveyor with tbe writ.
To obtain a crown grant in 181)0 it
was necessary lo do assessment work to
tlio amount of 8600 and to havo tho
claim surveyed, whieh meant another
���1100. In 1897 the act was amended so,
as lo provide that up to .May 1, IN!"'-,the
cost of such Ktirvoy should count its
work done ';u the claim, not to exceed
1100. In plain English, it counted as
an as essment and hh work toward the
crown grants .V survey generally costs
$10(1. The last ii-gi'daturo extends the
time to May 1. 1899.

Sundny ns a day for fighting is wonderfully popular. Not ouly Is past history full of instances of bnttlos fought
upon the day of rent, but the United

now In which the two moat Important

San Francisco has a no*- charter, in
which the referendum is a salient feature. It has been adopted by a vote
of 1,3*0 for to 12,025 agalust. One
provision of the charter ls that no new
franchise whatever, for lighting, water
or street railway lines, can be granted
without it is ratified by a vote of the
people at the next municipal election,
nnd uo street railway franchise cau be
"renewed until within ninety days of its
expiration, and then Its renewal must
be decided by the voters. If 15 per cent.
of their number sign a petition to that
effect. When new franchises for street
railways are secured they run for only
twenty-five years. This is the beginning of a movement th.*t Is likely to

I'ntil lt was discovered that l'orto
itico possessed greal value as a "strategic center" of naval operations, the
fair Isle slumbered undisturbed, merely
a link, and no important oue, in the
emerald chain that separates the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Suddenly
nuvul folk became aware of ils importance; they saw that while it borders
on the Caribbean Sea, yet lt breasts
the rough Atlantic waters; that it is
equidistaut, or about a thousand miles,
from Key West and Colon; from New
York 1,500 miles, wliich is half the distance from Cadiz; 1,300 from Newport
News, which is half the distance to the
Canaries. It lies, in fact, at the very
polut that we should have selected for
a coaling station, bad we unrestricted
choice of location. All the arguments
that havo been advanced for the acquisition of the Island of St. Thomas,
sixty miles distant, and for which at
one time we were almost ready to pay
seven million dollars, apply witli tenfold force to Vorto Klco, with its six
good harbors to the one of St. Thomas,

Learn Spanish, young man. Cuba,
Porto Rico aud the Philippines will
(oue, two or all of them) soon be opened to American enterprise, and there
wlll be great opportunities for youths
of energy, ability nnd character to get
ahead. Indeed, all Spanish-America is
a land scarcely touched as yet. The
iiiouey-inaking possibilities of Cuba
alone are far greater than those offered
by the Klondike. Tliere will be chances
for the best kind of men���men who are
willing to build up fortunes by steady
work and the application of intelligence. Plantations that under proper
management will produce enormous
fortunes will be open to purchase
cheap, and there will be a demand for
the services of overseers, engineers,
clerks aud all kinds of subordinates
with educated brains. Cuba ls a uinr-
velously rich country. Under a free
government property will be safe aud
public order secure. The Cubans will
welcome American capital and American immigration of the healthy kind.
The young man who goes to Culm with
a knowledge of the language, good habits, a determination to get on, a willingness to work and equipped by training for business will land ou his feot.
If there Is any one thini* more thnn
another for which the American people
should offer thanks lt ls their national
temperament it is a temperament that
does not merely invite success, lull that
practically nssures It. In spite of our
hurry and "hustle" there is, in the
American ninke-up, a kind of imperturbable calmness and assurance that
is akin lo the British or German quality, and thnt is tlie thing we call, for
want of a better term. Anglo-Saxon,
and whose basal elements are Teutonic.
An editorial writer in the Outlook a
short time ngo related a conversation
overheard by Mm in a railroad train,
in whicli one of two men, wtio were
commenting on tbe chances of a common friend for election to a public office, said; "He's showed how bud he
wanted it, and don't you know if you
know a man wonts a tiling as bad as
tlmt. It kind of goes against you to vote
for himV That's human nature." The
writer proceeds to show how tills instinct, common to all of us, so fur from
being mean or perverse, is in fact a
part of tlie forces making for public
soundness. The nominee "intolerably
anxious to win votes" Is, in all probability, not tlie Ulenl mnn for tbe place,
and. while he may be morally superior
to bis opponent he lucks the tempera*
ment of which ths best political leaders
are made. Tlie Outlook writer supported his theory by other Instances and
attenuated it somewhat but the gist of
bis remarks was that the Ideal leader
does not set tils henrt on any given victory, baca.ua for him a victory more or
less does not greatly mutter - he knows
success rides upon his banners, and he
preserves bis Inner calmness, even
when lighting desperately for the Immediate issue. This Is the temperament
thut wins, that Is never defeated even
when Its bearer is ground luto the dust.
It Is the tempera ment that fights best
when Its cause Is Just, and that for
that reason whenever It has been pitted
against itself, as In the Revolution and
the Rebellion, has turned the balance
iu favor of right rather than might. It
is the temperament that has led a
peaceful nation Into a war which at the
outset seemed likely to enlist all the
powers of the earth against the defender of the weak. It Is the temperament
that stands behind the greatest civilizing forces of the earth at this present
moment, nnd that would survive any
nnd all adverse forces external to
Itself, so long as it bad a moral foothold. It ls tho temperament which,
even if the great blind, dense mass of
Slavism could throw Itself In the track
of civilization, would still rise, with
"keen untroubled face" above the seeming ruin, and would triumph in the end.
For the one thing that the Anglo-
Saxon has never yet learned Is the lesson ot final and real defeat I- is, above
all others, the invincible temperament
The torpedo field nnd fort (run used in the army nnd navy consists of a cylindrical tube forming the main body, which is separated from the pnrt containing
the breech. The gun is supported by a steel framework, the rear end of which curries the breech portion, and the front forms the forward half of the niu/./.le ballbearings, the other hulf consisting of a ring shrunk Upon the tube near the muzzle.
Since the bore is perfectly concentric with the breech cavity, the eun can he
loaded without absolutely bringing tlie main tuba to rest. In this type of weapon
the gun is rotated by means of near ami sprocket wheels, similar to those on a
bicycle, for Increasing speed and transmitting power. The speed is thus so multiplied that the velocity of 1.2(H) revolutions per minute is imparled to the gun. In
the larger types used fur fortifications and on board ship the side frniiie wliich
forms the trunnion of the breech is replaced Iiy cylindrical casing which carries
the trunnions at ils forward end. The heaviest rocket tired from the Howell gun
will contain 300 pounds of gun cotton or dynamite, aud will curry about 8,000 yards.
The dynamite is incased iu a thin metnl tube.
The Gold-from-Sea-Water  Man   Goea
Abroad for Hie Health.
Last November there wns considerable newspaper talk nbout n New England Baptist clergyman, Jeruegan by
nnme, who on a voyage for his heulth
was reported to have discovered a
method of treating sen water chemically, thus extratclng tlie large percentage of pure gold which the waters of
the great deep were said to contain.
This man was supposed to be an expert chemist and mineralogist, nud was
said to have spent months in experimenting on the theory. The process
was a close secret. With the gentlemen
whom he had taken into his confidence,
Mr. sTernegan instituted th plant on a
small scale on Nnrrngaiisett Bay. The
idea was so unique, aud the promised
returns so enormous, that it was only
a few days till the reverend gentleman
had the general public interested, and
not only so, but several men of money
thought It worth their while to look
Into the mutter lu order that If It
should turn out to be a good thing they
would not be too late for a chunee to
take stock in the extensive plant it was
proposed to set up.
A derrick wus built in tlie bay several hundred yards from the shore.
Leading out to lt jvns a long bridge.
Out here the experiments were performed. The men of money were Invited, and enme, bringing with them a
supply of quicksilver, at tlie request of
the minister. This was placed lu a
lead-lined box. The box wus lowered
and an elctrlc current passed through
tbe quicksilver, tbe result being that
the precious metnl was extracted from
the sea wnter. After a certain time the
box wns raised and Its contents turned
over to an assayer, who reported that
the return of gold was not only pure,
but thut the deposit was very heavy.
Tbe money men were pleased, and Mr.
Jernegan might have any reasonable
amount to establish a plant. He got
several thousand on the strength of
the experiment, but the plant came
slowly. One excuse after another was
Invented and tbe men of capital grew
Misplcious. He found out tliere was
danger, so he packed bis grip and sailed
for France. The scheme was certainly
a unique one. What really happened
while the box was under water was
this: A diver went down at some point
near by and, unknown tp the capitalists, put ln whatever gold was in the
box when lt came up.
World's Iiaslest People.
Thc laziest and dirtiest people In the

tlan village, although tt merely consists
of miserable stone hovels, without any
attempt at form or adornment.
Within the houses they are inconceivably dirty. They are filled with rags,
vermin and dirt of every description.
They possess no fireplaces or chimney.
All the cooking, in fnct, is done over a
hole scooped out in the middle of the
floor, ln these houses men. women and
children are huddled together, During
the long winter mouths they are shut

Strange    Funeral     Custom*    of    the
Italian* in New York.
One of thc most remarkable of funeral customs, according to American
ideas, ls one that hus grown up in the
llallau quarter in New York. The 2u.-
IXKI or more Italians In the city form :>
separate community iu the henrt of
the metropolis and occupy the region
about the historic Mulberry Bend.
They are mostly bootblacks, pushcart
meu or duy laborers; nearly all of then:
are poor, but when one of their nuiii'
ber dies he Is apt to receive a funeral
that is more elaborate than most of th*
residents of oth avenue have. It is im
unusual tiling to see a funeral proces.
slou of twenty-five to thirty carriages
starting from one of the crowded tenements of tlie Italian quarter. Behlud
the hearse, which is sometimes drawn
by four horses, conies an open carriagii
filled with dowers. There are pillows
and crosses and wreaths that fairly
overflow the sides of the carriage. All
the flowers that do duty at the funeral
are conveyed to tlie burial ground, nml
thoy are arranged to make as brave u
display as possible.
After the leaders comes a motley procession of vehicles, rusty-looking hacks,
drawn by skeletonized horses and occupied by persons of nil ages, who
laugh and chut and gaze nbout tu
though Ihey were having Ilie pleasant-
est kind of time Imaginable, In fact,
the rear of an Italian funeral procession in New York might easily be mistaken for a picnic party. Sometime*
the cortege ls headed by a brass band,
but this Is not always the case. Tlie
idea of hiring a brass band to pay respect to a corpse Is one that will nol
nppe.nl to one brought up with American notions on this subject, but Unhand, ns a part of the funeral procession, is a sight too common ln New
York to attract special attention.
The uninitiated person who view*
this strange cavalcade of fruit and pen-
nut venders doubtless believes that
some person of note In the Italian colony ts dead. Inquiry often reveals the
fact, however, that It Is only some poor
bootblack or street laborer. Now. tt is-
a fact that bootblacks and laborers nte
not ordinarily burdened with wealth.
It is equally true carriages, flowers and
brass bands, even the variety to be
found on the Bowery and Mulberry
street, cost money. So the Italian funeral remained a mystery until it wa*
explained by the undertaker himself.
The undertaker Is a person of standing in the Italian colony. To the doleful Importance whicli ordinarily attach-
es to his ollice he adds a weight of so-
clnl influence which cannot be claimed
by auy of his fellows,
"It is the custom among my people-
When a person dies," said the undertaker, "to send out an announcement of
the fact and Invitations lo the funeral.
If the death occurs In a family of position they prepare tlie inviiallou list aud
1 send out tbe cards; If it is a nuiii in
poorer circumstances 1 make out the-
list myself. Each person who receives
a card understands thut If he comes to*
the funeral he Is expected to pay $1 for
the privilege, and It Is considered au.
honor to be Invited."
"Like it is to lie of what you call thu-
4(H)," explained the undertaker's assistant.
"All the actions of men are explained by tlie circumstances thnt surround
them," snys a modern philosopher. So.
It. is with the Italian funeral. A dollar
means a pleasant ride through the
greenery of the Long Island fields, but
more pleasant than the day's enjoyment Is the feeling of the guests thut
they are assisting at a function -for nit"
Italian funeral, viewed In the only t/fr-
root light, Is a social function. And Oie
bereaved family and friends! No doubt
their grief Is sincere enough, but perhaps It Is rendered less poignant by tin*
knowledge of the long procession ami
the silver handles on the oolttn. Tho
system really rests upon the undertaker, and It pays hlm well, so he will
scarcely be the oue to change It."���

from a Maine village: "Due reason why

been use nearly everybody tries so hard
to bo like somebody else rather than to

a Illy as a rose, or a lilac as a peony, or
a dog as a cat. Be natural and you'll be
all right. Many a girl, without the
slightest talent for music, is rululng a
piano who should be making bonnets
or bread; many a boy Is studying for a
learned profession whose proper sphere
Is ln the machine shop or the mill; many
a man ls splitting up churches who
ought to be doing good service ln somo

They Are Democratic In Having; One
Standard of Manners.
However surprised those who talk of
-the "murk of blood" the Spaniard has
made in history may be to hear it, the
Spanish people arc essentially good-natured. They are singulurly kind to children, and their family relations are among
Ilie best and the most wholesome in the
world. There ure few prettier pictures
to be seen than the children of a Spanish
worklngman as they run to meet him on
Jits return from work and kiss his hand.
In a wuy the nation is tho most truly
democratic in the world, for it has but
one stiindard of manners. The children
of the rich man do precisely as the children of tlio poor. The peasant of Castile
is as self-possessed and us polite as the
"hidalgo." Moreover, they speak the sum.
(,'iistihin���or, if tliere is a difference, it is
that the peasant speaks a purer Spanish
than the educated mun, whose tongue is
rather Frenchified. Tliere are four languages spoken in Spain: the Galiciun,
wliich is closely akin to the Portuguese;
the Basque] the Catalan, which is a
branch of the Southern French; and the
-Castilian. Hut they are all spoken alike
in all classes. There is no distinction between the language of the upper and the
lower olaSS. The Tolcdun speaks better
Castilian than an Andalusian.
