MICH SAID REGARDING EAST KOOTENAY
Report on thc Mines at Moyie is
Given   and   Others   Will
Follow Later.
The annual rep-rt of Ilon.JJ. Fred
Ilu uie, minister of mines, as compiled
\iy William Pleet Robinson, provincial
mineralogist, for the yenr 1898, has been
received. It is u most complete review
of the mineral deytloptnent nf the province, "and Mr. Robinson, in his introductory, slates iimt he has adhered as
closely as possible to the general form
established by his predecessor, Air. Carlyle.
Kast Kootenay, including the Port
Steele and Windermere divisions, is fully represented, Mr. Robinson having
speut nearly two months examining the
properties in the two districts. Au elaborate report of the coal mines at Penile
is al-o given.
The work is au interesting one, and
valuable as well, the only fault to be
found is the necessary delay involved
from the time the data is gathered lo
the lime of publication. The importance of the report as a reliable source
jf Information, is lessened to a marked
degree, since a vast amount of work has
been done during that period, that materially changes conditions. But considering the vast area to be covered throughout |lhe province, under the present appropriations ior such work, Ihere seems
to be no remedy for the fault suggested.
If, however, the provincial government
-.ould arrange to have its miting reports printed ofteuer aud more promptly
the value to the various districts inter*
ested would be increased many fold.
The Herald will publish from week to
week the reports ou various sections iu
this district, as given by Mr. Robinson
in his report, not that the publication
will be of material value at this late
date, but because It will show the official view taken of the properties at the
time the examination was made, some
nine months ago:
St. E-ig....; tiroup
Consisting of the St. Eugene nnd Peter
mineral claims, and the Rose and Loret-
to fractions, all Crown granted I1S97) in
the names of J. Cronin and J. A. Pinch, !
who have ulso a mill site on the lake
front, close to the railway. The property is under the management of J. Cronin,
who, at the time of my visit iu the early
part of June, was employing about 12 or
14 men in development work. On the
surface, the lead had been traced by
various openings for pretty well the entire length ofthe properties, proving its
continuity. The underground development h is, however, beeu so extensive
aud successful that the surface indications are not of such relative importance.
I shall not notice them further than to
say that at various poiutsabove the present upper tunnel, for a distance ot 600
leet, the lead has been exposed, aud
galena ore, almost solid, has been uncovered of a width at the surface of from
two to five feet.
Development. No. 1 shaft was sunk
on the vein to a depth of 57 feet, In ore
of the width of the shaft all the way to
the level of No. 1 tunnel. No. I tunnel,
five by 7 feet, was run in on the lead for
a [distance of from 174 to 200 feet, gaining 11 depth at the face of about 150 feet,
and seems to have been in pretty nearly
solid ore of the width of the tunnel for
the whole distance, the walls being fairly well defined.
No. 2 shaft was sunk about 30 feet to
the west from the mouth of No. 1 tunnel, starting from that level and sunk on
the lead, and it is said to huve been in
solid ore for a depth of 50 feet, at which
depth the solid ore ceased and the vein
was only partially mineralized. This
shaft has now beeu connected through
to No, 2 tuiint'l, a vertical depth of 120
feet.
No. 2 Tuunel. A crojs-cut was driven
about 100 feet, and cut the veiH at a vertical depth of 100 feet b.'luw the No. 1
tunnel. The lead was found lo be only
slightly mineralized here, and not such
as wus in the upper tin nd. Prom this
point the tunnel was diiveu on or on the
side ofthe vein which continued to show
only Blight values till a point, some distance to the east os No. 2 shaft, aud
about 400 feet in, was reached, where
again the solid ore was struck. After
striking the ore the work had been continued some 250 ftet, at the time I saw it
iu June, and had carried ore for the
width of the tunnel all the way in to its
face. In this tunnel a couple of small
igneous dykes have cut ucross the lead,
but do not appear to have been accompanied by faulting to any extent. At
the time of my visit there was a dyke
cuttiug across the fuce which had not
yet been cut through, but from past experience and surface indications was not
creating any anxiety in the minds of the
management.
Prom the development made it would
appear that there is an ore chute outcropping ou the surface from No. 2 shaft
for a distance of 600 feet to the east, so
far as yet known; aud lhat such ore
chute has a dipof about 45 degrees lo the
eust—i. e., into the hill. The ore chute
haa a width of from three lo six feel,
safely averaged at four feet, and while it
contains a considerable percentage of
absolutely solid galena, it is partly mnde
up of ore that should be concentrated,
The besl class of ore is stated by tbe
management to assay '■' P1-'1" cent lead
aud nbout 50 oUDCiiS of silver to the ton.
The surface openings   show  up two
other leads of sun.il.ir character, with
frcm six to 24 inches of galena, winch
may be parallel leads or only spurs from
the main lead; sufficient development
not having been done uu Ihem to deter*
mine which,
.Since my visit I am Informed that a
wagon ro.id has been built, from the mine
lo .Moyie, and that shipments of first
class ore will he made this year. Should
the development continue Batisfuctory,
a concentrator will be erected on the
lake slime und connected with llle mini*
by tramway,
Queen ul tlie Hills and Moyie Claims.
The Queen of ihe Hills and the Moyie
are full sited Crown granted claims lying directly below and adjoining the St,
Eugene group, and are owned by 1-'.
Houghton, ti,. P, Davis and others, The
St, Eugene lead runs through both
properties, and in places it carries con*
sideraltle galena; but uo ore chute such
as exists in the St. Eugene has not yet
beeu discovered. Ou the Queen of Ibe
Hills there are three small open cuts
showing galena of about the same grade
as in the St. Eugene. On the Moyie
there is n 75-foot tunnel run iu lo E ou
the lead, with a cross cut of 15 feet to N,
and {another of 30 feet to S, showing
some galena. In un open rut at a point
where the lead seems to he somewhat
distorted, some 18 inches of fairly solid
galena shows on ihe surface, but the
showing has not beau developed.
Lake Shore Mineral Claim,
A full-sized, Crown granted claim,
owned by Charles Farrell et al, and situ*
ttted below and adjoining the Movie aud
on the St. Kugeue lead. Here the vein
carries galena iu pockets, but has nol as
jet developed an ore chute. There is u
tunnel on the lead now iu about ioo
feet. A short distance to the south of
the main lead there has been encountered a [secondary lead, also carrying galena, but little work has been done ou
this as yet,
The three claims last mentioned derive
much ol their prospective value, and
quite properly, from lhe success of the
development In the St. Eugene; and the
fact thi.I lhey are on the same lead as is
Hint mine. It is to be hoped that a
similar ore chute may be fuund to exist
further down the lllll, As before staled,
the St. Eugene ore chute dips away from
these properties and to the east.
(A vast amount of development work
has been done on tins property since the
above report was made, and it has become a shipper, and is recognized as an
extremely valuable property.—Ed.)
Thc St. Eugene Concentrator.
Moyie Leader: All doubt is now removed regarding the building of tbe St.
Eugene concentrator, flume and tramway. James Cronin, manager and part
owner of the mine, returned from Spokane last evening. When seen this
morning by a representative of the
Leader he said that the work would go
right along without delay. That tbe
contract for building the tramway had
already been let, aud that work on the
concentrator and flume would begin as
soou as possible. The site for the concentrator is being cleared, and several
sawmill funis are figuring on the furnishing of the lumber for the building,
which will amount to some 300,000 feet.
The concentrator will have u capacity of
from no lo 150 tons per day. The
working force at the mine will be increased to 35 men for the present, and
perhaps 50 will be a conservative estimate of the number of men that will be
employed on the other works of the
company, making 75111 all. As 50011 as
the road between the mine aud the siding is free from suow the hauling from
the mine and shipments of ore will be
resumed, and will continue until the
mill and tramway are iu running order.
Nearly a half carload of supplies for
the mine, consisting of caudles, steel,
shovies, picks, grindstones and two
bellows came in on last evening's train
and were unloaded.
The absolute certainty of tins work
going ahead will have a stimulating effect on Moyie, and is an assurance of
the town going steadily ahead Ibis summer. _____
Mining Nnies.
A tunnel is being driven on the Union
Jack, owned by .Messrs. I.ove, lloggarth
ami Usher.
Mr. Kellogg, superintendent of the
Noi Hi Slar mine, relumed Monday
night from Rosslaud where he has been
in attendance on  lhe great miuing suit.
James Cronin, manager of the St. Eugene mine, was in lown Monday getting
Ogurea on lumber for the big flume he is
to build at the mine right away.
The mining companies with bead-
VUftrterS at Nelson, have agreed to pay a
scale of $3 a day for eight hours' woik,
d close down if lhe miners fail to
agree to the terms specified.
Messrs. Hamilton  and Gaguon  have
taken out supplies lo T. A. Cretghton's
claim on   Perry creek, the Sunset, ami
ill commence  development  work  at
once.
Messrs. Higby and VanArsdftlen came
:er from Port Steele   Prlday for a brief
sit.    Although   lhey  have   sold  tbeir
terest in the big Chief, they look upon
it as one of thet bingest proposiiiotyjTin
East Kootenay.      Mr, Higby stated tha
four assays from ordinary looking rock
taken from four different places, showed
values as follows:   $1095, $35.63, $160
I and $440.57.    That  is pretty good evidence of a bonanza.

Victoria, May 6.--The provincial government has subscribed fr.ono.ouo toward the cost of the Pacific cable. This
places the province on the same footing
as the great Australian colonies, New
South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and
New Zealand iu this matter.
Charged With Being a Defaulter.
Rosslaud, May 6 — W, S. Joues, collector of inland revenue, is a defaulter
and has left lhe country. Inspector
Miller and GUI are here from Vancouver
investigating lhe matter. Joues has
been absent from Rossland for about a
month, but it was understood that he
would return. The amount taken will
be about (looo, Jones whereabouts is
not known to the authorities.
Capital Quickly Subscribed.
New Vork, May 4 —President James
Siillmaii of tbe National Cily Hank,
stated today thai more than twice the
$75,000,000 of the Amalgamated Copper
company had been subscribed when tbe
books closed at noon.
The Elfht Hour Law.
Victoria, May 4.—Government has decided to give effect lo the eight hour
law respecting metalliferous mines from
121I1 of June next.
Such is the brief but momentous despatch received from Victoria last night.
No explanation is given but it is to be
presumed that the government has con-1
suited the Kootenay members and the '
majority of them have approved of it.
Mr. Martin of Rossland is known to be
in favor of it, Mr. R. Green ofthe Slo-
can, was thought doubtful, and Mr. Kelly of Revelstoke also had not taken any
very prominent stand in the matter so
far. 	
Successor to Admiral Dewey.
Washington, May 8.—The naval department has selected a successor to Admiral Dewey to command the Asiatic
station. Orders were issued detaching
Rear Admiral Watson from command of
the Mare Island navy yard and ordering
him to report to Dewey at Manila, to re-
that officer when Ue feels that he can be
spared. 	
A   YEAR   OF   PROGRESS.
One   Was   lostituted   lo This   City  List
Tuesday   Night.
Last Tuesday night Key City lodge,
No. 42, I. O. O. F., was instituted iu thli
city and twenty-two new members were
initiated. The lodge will start out with
a complete membership of nearly fifty
members, which makes it one of the
strongest lodges in tbe province. District Delegate Lott, assisted by Meters.
Clements, Squire* and Neelands, all of
Nelson, had charge of the work. The
following officers were installed: R. K.
lieattie. N. G.; P. E. Simpson, V. O.;
Pred Hazen, secretary; Joseph Mitchell,
treasurer.
After the close of the ceremonies Ihe
members adjourned to the Cranbrook
hotel and partook of a magnificent sapper that gave delight and satisfaction to
each participant.
Evidences of Process.
M. McBarchern has the lumber on
the ground for the erection of a residence
34 by 30, ti* o stories high, ou his Baker
hill property. It will be modern in
every way. Contractor Graut will have
charge ofthe work.
A. Leitch is having the Hazen proper*

What Business Ability and Hard Work Has
done tor 0. H. Miner.
A year ago last January G. II. Miner,
who was theu employed at Manitou,
Man., by the firm of Chalmer Bros. _
Bethuue, as tinsmith, concluded that it
was about time be made a strike for him*
self. Visiting Winnipeg that month he
beaid In great deal about the Crows
Nest Piiss road and the prospective town
•>. Cranbrook, To make up his mind
wa: to act with Mr. Miner, and on the
rSth of March he drove onto the flat that
in a year's time was to become a thriving, hustling place of business. He saw
at once that Craubrook was most favorably situated, and arranged for a store
building to be erected by V. Hyde
baker, and sent for his goods, It was
then necessary to freight from Golden
to Craubrook by team, and after the
goods had arrived in Golden it took him
twenty-one days to get them here. Hut
011 [the fourth of May he had his store
opened, a portion of his stock in place,
and was ready for business. Prom that
day to Ibis Mr. Miner has increased his
trade by attending strictly to business
and carry an immense stock in his line.
Mouth after mouth he kept crowding
himself until be finally found it necessary to secure larger quarters. This
week he moved to the commodious
building erected for him by N. Hanson,
where lie will have one of the finest
hardware stores iu either of tbe Kootenays,
Last winter Mr. Miner returned lo his
early home and brought back a wife,
and in March he had his brother, C. A.
Miner, come from Buffalo. N. Y., to assist him iu his business.
Libersl Association.
A general meeting of the Cranbrook
Liberal association will be held in Leask
hall on Saturday evening at 9 o'clock.
All Liberals are cordially invited to attend. Alex Moffat, Sec'y.
An Early Closing Movement.
The merchants of the town are considering the subject of early closing, a custom that prevails iu most of the leading
town in British Columbia during tbe
summer months. If all unite in the
movement, it would seem to be a step in
the right direction, since it would give
both proprietors nnd clerks an opportunity to get out during the long, pleasnnt
(veilings, without effecting iu the least
their volume of business, A meeting
will probably be held in a short time to
lake {action on the matter one way or
the oilier.
Cranbrook people will have a baseball
club.
Enjoyed By All.
The Metropolitan Opera company arrived per announcement last Friday
evening front the west, and Saturday
night presented La Mascot to a house
that was crowded, the receipts running
cr $; vj. Considering the fact lhat
tbe stage accouimodatious were decidedly limited for a compauy of thirty members, the work was done in a very satisfactory- manner. The footlighta were
kerosene lamps, the drop curtain was
embellisher with a scene of innocence
and purity. '.it was a strip of white canvas , tbe dressing rooms were curtained
off sections, and thin curtains at thet,
while the hall was in a stage of completion that suggested the idea it had been
''out doors" at a uot very remote period.
But the people did not care for that
The company was all right, end tbey
met the di&iculties of ibe occasion with
good nature, smiling as they thought of
the receipts of the box otbee, which, by
the way, was a nail keg with a board
across the top of it. The tinging and
acting of Maurice Hageman as Lorenao
w&s extremely pleasing, while Mis*
Blanch Aldrich as Bettina, the Maecott,
made a most favorable impression. Will
S. Rising, as Pippo, displayed an ei-
cellent voice and little talent for acting.
Tbe chorus was good, and as to their
physical attractions, well—that is a mere
matter of form. The Cranbrook people
enjoyed the evening immensely, and
'some of the young men of tbe tow*
thought it was too good a thing to loee
and went to Port Steele Monday night
to hear them in tbe Bohemian Girl.
Bear Muoting at Elko.
Klko, B.C., May 8.—An exciting bear
bunt took place near here recently. Aa
Thomas Brown was making the round*
of his traps, he very unexpectedly came
upon an enormous bear in one of the
traps he had set for that purpose. So
close was he to his bearsbip that he did
not.relish his position, and he found it
necessary to institute a vigorous fight to
save himself. After smashing hia rifle
over tbe bear's head, he eluded tbe
brute's blows and effected bis eacape.
Mr. Browu then secured the assistance
of Mr. Watson, civil engineer ia charge
of tbe Kootenay railway surrey, and
Knos Campbell. All were armed wilh
rifles, and when tbey returned to tha
bear two well aimed Bbots by Mr. Canp*
l>ell and one by Mr. Watsou despatched
Bruin in short order. It was a silver tip
aud weighed about 700 pounds.

A BUSINESS SUQOBSTION.
Nelson merchants object to "traveling
houses" visiting that town. That is
right, A'tax of (to to $25 a day should
be imposed on all snch concerns, and
The Herald hopes thai the government
agent will be able to InlpOIQ some such
license on all such concerns lhat may
come to Cranbiook in lhe future. Our
merchants are carrying heavy stocks,
aud what is more, it is possible to purchase almost anything wanted iu some
one of the Craubrook stores. These
merchants have invested Iheir money in
Cranbrook. They are contributing to
ihe prosperity of the lown, and stand
.vith purses open ready to assist in uny
movement that promises benefit to the
community. Tbey aie entitled to every
consideration, not only lu protection
from Cheap John traveling houses, but
also this mania of sending to eastern
houses us well. Tlie Herald has bad,
within the past three mouth', offers of
advertisements from several of the large
department houses In Toronto, uud although this paper is anxious to secure
all the advertising possible, yet it wants
none of that kind.     Ibe  Herald is a
Cranbrook Institution,    its proprietor
has everything he possesses invested iu
Cranbrook and South Ivast Kootenay,
and naturally feels anxious to see this
district advance, It is to the interest of
every property owner, every business
man, and everyone holding a position,
living in the district, to promote lhe interests of the district iu every possible
way. llut this cannot be done by sending away for the many things that one
needs. It is not business, nor is it light.

UOOD   TIIINU   FOR   Till:   DISTRICT.
The sale of thp Big Chief mine is n
good thing Tor South Bast Kootenay in
general and Port Steele iu particular. H
has brought more outside money into
the district, and interested outside capital in a property that will do wonders
toward increasing the confidence of capitalists tu the mineral possibilities of
this district. The Herald cannot refrain
from congratulating the peoplo of Port
Steele on the sale, and also the people of
the whole district. It will bring increased prosperity to every town in
South I'.Bst Kootenay, because it will result in otlier investments, and Lhe development of other good properties,
THAT NEW SCHOOL HOUSE.
If the people of Craubrook wish lo
have a school building they must be up
and ntovingv II begins to look as if
school houses were to lie rare prizes In
the province this year. Fernie, with i;,o
school children, is slill without a school
house or' teacher. Nelson, wilh overcrowded schools, is unable to secure
either relief or replies to petitions for assistance. Cranbrook needs a building,
and needs one badly. This is not a
matter of politics. It is simply n (piestion of'justice. The government has
charge of* school matters in llie province,
nnd it is incumbent upon those who
have personal supervision ol lhe work
to meet the demands and needs of the
people aud avoid unnecessary delay.
EDITORIAL NOTES,
The eight hour mining law is here to
stay, aiid owners of mines will havt
govern themselves accordingly.
Cranbrook is the business center of
.South East Kootenay for one of the best
reasons in the world. The commercial
business of the district is transacted
here. 	
\V, P. I'.vans, lute of thc New Denver

ihat the Kootenaian will now be run
a policy that will bring lo it success,
The Fernie Free Press says tlml there
nr« nine cases of typhoid fever reported

and other places cannot be too careful.
The only salvation is strict sanitary regulations.    Be clean and you will be saved.

Since 1 ft it iin- red thrill In my heart, anil

The world Is for Iho young.  When 1 look

But over thoro comes tho Bama old song,

Let mo lake Ihls Httlo ono to my arms-

With tiir same sweet love that til** mothor

Lot me way to him: "When tho night
urows dim, will you think uf Hustings I'Vo sting?"
And the dear, sweet oyes will answer:
"Tho world is for tho youngl"
What dooa he know i»r tho whitened locks
lhat full from my bonding brow?
Hi- only knows that his father's arms are
cIobq around him now!
He only knowa he haa all 1 have—for all

Aiui that, when the night is falling, he

The nir is mild and caressing, however, without the least sling of frost.
The book agent had his vest w idely unbuttoned unit was gazing whb surprise

Tin' dentist was laughing and "sicking" thein on.
"Doe" sat and listened for several moments beforo he could determine lhe
subject under debate. What dn you
suppose it was?
Which was thc greater general. (J rant
OP bee'.'
No one can ever tell how these hotel
rguments begin, nnd uo one ever saw
ine of them urrlve at any conclusion
ind end amicably.
The "lush" was defending the miliary reputation of Ornnt, Not that he
mew very much about Grunt or hud

genius, but because the freckled boy
and snid something in favor of bee
"If Lee had only luul as many sol-
Iters as Grant hnd there wouldn't have
been a thlug to it," said tlie freckled
Uoy. "I'm jusi us good a union man
as anyone, but I say give a man credit
for bein' good."
"What was your regiment'.'" asked
the "lush."
"Well, I conic about as near fightin'
as you did,"
•'.Inst aboul. Why, you wasn't born
until 'Doc' and I began to stop talking
aboul. Hit- war."
"A man can rend.cnn't he?"
"I'll lell you jusi huw much you know
about   Lee.    You saw his picture (ill u
cigar box Bomowhore. What's his ilrst
name?'1
"Hubert 15, Leo,"
"Thai's right! That's the name of
the cigar—the Robert 13, U_ cigar. J
knew that's when- you got the nninc."
"I s'pose I dnti'l know Jinythingnbi-ut

"It seems in me I've beard of Unit,
ioo.   Who won om ihero?"
"Why shouldn't In* win out whon ho
had four times ni many soldiers."
"Who's that- beeV"
"No. ii wasn't Lee."
"Well, who was il came out abend'."'
"Whal docs ibat prove?"
"What does whnt prove? I'm merely
asking you."
"Well, I s'pose everyone knows that
Ornnt finally captured Richmond."
"Who's that'.'  Ornnt?"
"Yds, I'll mlmll lhat he Iinally captured Richmond."
"Thai doesn't prove any thing, though.
dues it V I guess that was an accident.
Things jusi hnppcncd to come bis way.
Jlc didn't know a thing aboul the military business."
"Bul be hnd tho soldiers."
"Well, that's where he was smooth.
Why didn't Lee get some soldiers and
have them there?"
"ITc couldn't get Ihem."
"Well. 1 don't think much of n gen

"Well, what's ihe difference? Didn't
he quit?"
"Yes. lie Iinally surrendered."
"That's right—he surrendered, What
inure do you want'.1"
"Whnt argument is ihere in that kind
uf talk'.'   You make me tired."
"Let me understand your side of this
case, lii'iinl and Lco came together at
Richmond,   That's right, isn't ii?"
"Yes, I s'pose yuu could suy they
eame together."
"Grant tired to capture Richmond
and Lee tried to stand bim off."
"Yes. but-"
"Isn't lhat practically right?"
"lt don'l tell exactly how it wub, bul
I'll let it go. even at that."
"Ornnt captured Richmond and made
l.ee surrender, ami that's why Lee was
better than Ornnt."
"No! That ain't what I say. He fair,
be fair! If you're goin' to argue give
ine a fair show."
"Then you don't claim thnt Lee was
belter because be got licked?"
"You know I haven't suid that.
What's tliiMisc'.1"
"Uul yuu do say thnt (It-ant wasn't so
good because he won out'.'"
"What I say—No! 1 don't say lhat nt
all. Here! Now this is au illustration,
Would you expect Oeorge Dixon to lick
Sharkey? Would you? dust answer
Uie that."
"What were they, eonfedoratca or
union men?"
"Yuu know who lhey arc, Ocorgc
Dixon lights at 12ii, and Sharkey lights,
meblic, al 170. Do you think it would
be right to put Dixon ngnlnst Sharkey?"
"I don't think it would be right for
them to light at till. At least, it wouldn't
be very nice of them."
"Well, I ain't goin' to talk to you unless yon want tube serious."
"Of course, I'm serious. Oo ahead
wilb your story."
"1 say. s'pose Dixon would light with
Sharkey. Wouldn't you expect Sharkey
to win?"
"Sure."
"Well-^there!"
"And that would show that Dixon is
entitled to the money, wouldn't It?"
"1 didn't say so, did IV
"What arc you trying to get ut, anyway? You don'l mean to compare Oen.
Lee to a prize lighter, do you?"
"No: but It'saslmilarcase. You can't
expect n small man to lick a great, big
man, can you? Answer me that."
"1 know you're going to catch me, but
I'll answer it. No, you can't expect u
small man to licit a big one."
"And you can't expect a small army
to lick a big army, win you?"
"Here! You want to trap me. lean
see that."
"Well, yuu answer my question."
"AH right. Probably that's true. You
oan'l expect a small army to defeat 11
large one."
"Then what's tbe use of talking?"
"None at all. Lee's army wus licked.
wasn't it'.'"
"What did you admit just now'.'"
"Never you mind what 1 admitted just
now. It's my turn to nsk questions of
you.   Lee's army was licked, wasn't it'.'"
"It w,i.< small and had to give In."
"That's what you really think?"
"Yes, sir, that's what 1 think."
"That's wlun E think, too. I can't see
thai there's nny room for an argument.
You admit that Urunt hud all the best
of It."
"No, I don't, either. Not by a darned
sight."
"No, he didn't admit thatln so many
words," said the dentist. "What he
means is that Lee showed great generalship in standing* off the enemy as long
as he did."
"That's what I've been saying," remarked the freckled boy. "Why, I'll
hnve it to 'Doe' Home, hero, if 1 ain't
right. Don't you think Lee was the
greatest general of the two?"
"Really, gentlemen, I don't care to express a preference," said "Doe," with n
biami smile. "Each was a military
genius in his way, and eneli has written
bis name on the—ah—imperishable tablets of fame. I met both of them—Oen.
Lee before the war and Gen. Grant
during the campaign of 1808, Although
huth or them had tKe reputation ot having cold and distant temperaments, I
must say tbut tbey showed me very
cordial treatment. Therefore, [admire
them, not only us soldiers, but nt* American gentlemen, and now tbat they have
gone io their long rest und their efforts
in behalf of the causes which they
espoused have passed Into history, 1
hardly feel that It would be proper to
enler Inlo any dispute lis lo their relative merit-,."
The book agent sighed and repeated,

The Danigr* Worrying Does.
A famous actress once said, "Worry )■
thn foo if oil beauty." and she might have
•added, "It Is also tho foe to all health."
Nnrhlngwlll bring lines nnd wrinkles so
•ooi, to n faco aa worry. There are people
who worry over a thing for yeurs. It mny
tm something they wish they had not done,
or It mny bo enniethlug that they lung to
do. Tho thought' of it la with them the
moment they open their eyes in the morning and lt Is tho last thing they think of
beforo falling to sleep, It may even happen tbat they dream of It, and very, very
often It will keep them awnko for houra.
Now, what la the good el ItT Will worrying remedy what la past or will It bring
the future ono day nearer.1 Is any good to
t» obtained by It ut ol I* No, It Is not, and
you know it is not. "But," you soy, "tho
thing Is on my mind, und I can't get rid
ef tt however I try." It can bo dono,
though, If you try really hard enough, says
Tho Virginian Pilot.
Hero Is ono remedy, and you must say
lt la a pleasant ono—tho Instant the worry
takes possession of you think of somo
plcusuru you have had at one timo uf your

after unother, and as It brings a smile to
your lips and a light to your eyes your foe*
-Hill slowly hut surely assiiino n different
and very much moro pleasant expression.
Got Into the habit of pondering over
pleasant things which happen to ynu coch
day, and forgot all tho misty ones. It is
related of an old lady onco who kept what
■ho called "a pleasure book," and In It
she made n point of recording ouch day
somo pleasure aho had had. "No matter l
how dull or tlresomu the dny has been,"
she said, "I can always uianngn to llnd ■

Ryan's nose is u very sensitive organ
and he mis trained it with the utmost

that he cannot distinguish ono from the

Women nre tho most persistent Fet-'kers
after the fountain of youth and have been
fur many years.    In the  long ago men
may have been just as ambitious In that

The modem mnn nnd the modem woman are wiser In thoir quest for youth
than wen- the older time mou and women,
Art is still employed—yes, nnd whu will

quite a "buck seat" and sometimes
sighed and told about moro than half re
gretfully whnt she did "when sho was

Try to get the modern woman under 40
to say that she \s anything but young,
and Indeed even long beyond that, nge sho
frill not admit tho fact that her youth is
over, whether she te maid or wife, and she
Ih right. Vou will seldom, anyway, guess
thut sin* In ns old us she realty Is, and
often when she confides In you the date of

you discover it few wrinkles.    There Is nn
pensive droop to hor mouth to bring deep

eyes are not sad and dreamy, but Sparkle

has anything to do with the freshness of
hct1 appearance, as I have snid, it is decidedly hiinl to toll "where nature ends
and art stops In," nud I for one will not

A bright woman has snid that she thinks
there should bo nn eleventh commandment
and that It should rend, "Thou shalt not
muddle In other folks' business," and that
sim would particularly Impress this upon
the girl child lung before she makes her
debut In tho Boolul world, but that If sho
could nut begin with the girl child she
would Btlll uot bu discountKi-d. but have
copies nf It printed like "tracts" and icat-
ter them broadcast.
You mny think that this good eleventh
commandment nnd a woman's youthful

It Is as well for a woman to learn as she
goes through the busy world with Its ups
aud downs that she cannot direct the
affairs of a dozen {-copte or institutions
and look after hor own successfully at the
•mine time While It is not well nor generous for a woman to bo self centered, tha
must still not confound Interest, simple
and honest, and iho most common and
disagreeable of tendencies to meddle.
I know two women whose particular

straight und severe, and the other we-in

"worldly" to wear very modish bonnets,
and the other Insists upon bur milliner
making hers very fetching. One wears
gowns that mny be quite out of style for
all sho cares, and the other's have a nice
littlo air about them. Ono looks at tho
little feet to see If shoes and stockings nre
warm enough, and if they seem too thin
or worn she sends out o box of new ones.
The other talks about "reforms" nnd de-
elores tho lax management of tho"Institution" (she always snys Institution, with
a capital I) Is simply shocking, und thnt
the good littlo matron is not linn enough
and should not allow the children to frluk

manner of children, when the cluck has
chimed 8
Now, one of these women Is charitable
and tho other meddlesome, Cnn you guess
which Is which? Oh, yes! I know it is
not particularly respectful to call any woman who visits orphan nsylums meddlesome, but somebody Is bound to do It
sooner or Inter, nnd so I might as well bo
first And besides I nm only giving

A OO-YEAR.OLD LIFE-SAVER.
Straw-re Old SdmiMi-ltan of the Seo
Wbo l.l 1 va aa a Ltiuely I it laud.
Peter W. Green, the governor of 11
group of three tiny islands of voleunlc
origin oi! tbe African coast in the South
Atlantic, uud geographically known us
Tristun d'Acunbn, te one of the most remarkable life-savers in the world, says
the New York World. For IK) years and
more he hus mnde life-saving from shipwreck his business, having little else
to do, na he expressed himself to a ru-
ceut visitor, the captain of the English
mail bunt which touches ut thc islands
once n year.
.Mr. Green is a native of England nnd
now in bis 00th yenr. At thc age of 30,
when sailing before thc mast on a British vessel, he was wrecked near Tristan,
and be und several companions were
saved by the exertions of the natives.
His friends, some time later, were taken
on board 11 passing ship, but Green remained there and in the following year
was nominated governor of lhe leVuids
because of his wisdom nud the esteem
in which he was held. The oiflcehe bos
held ever since, combining with It the
duties of a clergyman and a doctor.
Green has always been on thc lookout
for persons und ships In distress and
he has saved many hundred lives from
certain death 011 the rocky coast, the
rescued ones being of all nationalities.
The governor Iiiih received decorations
and medals from almost overy monarch
in the world in recognition of bis humane efforts. The United States gov
eminent presented him with a handsome gold chronometer nnd chain. His
own sovereign, Queen Victoria, sent him
recently a most appropriate present/—
namely, a life-saving boat, with apparatus of the newest models. The
Islands whleh be governs contain only
from 55 to OU Inhabitants, poor natives,
whom Gov. Green haa educated to be,
like himself, Samaritans of tbe sea.

With it, only to he chased about for tbe

tbey seldom fight. If tbe pursued
turns, the pursuer stops, perks up his
tail, und, being promptly charged by
the other, becomes in turn the pur-
lUcd. But woe to both w lieu the missel
thrush comes. He Is pitiless In pursuit, and I have seen tbem pass my
