How " Teddy" llawei Watched the Water
Quage at This Office.
Last week''Teddy" Hawes, who was
a printer in Kngland years ago, helped
out in the ruBh al The Herald office dur-
ng the illness of the editor. When the
time came for running off the papers,
Teddy" was lold to watch the water,
and give warning in ample time to refill
the boiler. The press kept going, and
The Heralds were being turned out at
a rapid rate.
Uow'a the water,  'Teddy?'"   asked
the foreman.
"■Atl   right.     Plenty  of  il," replied
Teddy," wilh his broad, Cockney dialect.
A few minutes more and again came
lhe query, "How's the water?"
Lots of it," came back the reply from
the neighborhood of the engine.
Another minute or two, and the foreman, growing anxious, asked: "Arc
you sure there is enough water?"
'Yes, sir," said "Teddy." "The
bloomiu' barrel is clear full."
Biff! The press was stopped. Whiz !
and the injector was turned on and the
water began to climb up in lhe glass.
Teddy" had been watching the barrel
of wnter in which the supply is kept, instead of the water glass on the boiler.

shareholders are to be congratulated in
having Mr. Kstmere to look after their
interests. In his quiet way Mr Estmere has secured the old I.i'id plant
from Wild Horse creek- when he found
he could not handle the water in the
Black Bear by baud. The plant consists of a 16 horse power marine boiler,
a 14-horse power engine, a hoist and a
Knowles pump with a capacity of 60 gallons a minute. The plant is now on the
ground and already to run but for a few
fittings. No doubt that Black Beat

work of sinking begins again. A number of transactions have taken place in

decided upon last week at the meeting
of the Anglican synod on the coast,
where it was decided that the parson
was too cramped in snch a civilized field
as Rosslaud has become, Bishop Hart
accordingly offered him a roving commission all over the Kootenays with the
newer camps us his especial field. The
proffer was accepted aud now "Father
Pal" is no longer rector ofthe Rossland
congregation. Rev. W. H. Hedley of
Durham, Kngland, is here temporarily,
but permanent arrangements for his successor have not been made,
The passing of "Father Pat" will be
learned with deep regret by everyone in
the camp. In its kindliness, its liberality nnd its self sacrifice his personality
is unique nud very lovable. A broad-
minded man, he recognizes neither
castes nor creed, and among tlie miners
and frontiersmen of the whole province
he is looked upon with little less than
veneration. His new commission relieving him of the cares of parochial
work wilt give him more time than ever
to devote himself to their wants, and
the one unpleasant feature of Ihe change
is thnt it may take him permanently
away from kossland. I

prepare as many rollers ns there are
colors iu the design. Thus, if tlm design requires printing in eight colors,
eight rollers must be prepared.
When nil of the rollers aro ready, tho
artist directs his workmen, and euch
uno is given a color, A workman to
whom that color has been given takes a
roller to his bench, sets it firmly in the
grasp of a vise, and, with hammers,
files, brass ribbons and brass rods, goes
to work. Every bit of tho design that
is to be in green is traced out for him,
nud he carefully reproduces it in relief
oil the roller.
When his work is finished, the roller
bears on its face, in raised brass, green
stems, leaves, etc., and nt the proper
time nnd placo will pnt tho green coloring and shading jnst where the designer intended it should be. In liko manner the other rollers nro mnde ready for
use, and they nre then taken to a press
that has n large cylinder of the width
of ordinary wall paper Thero are
grooves aronnd the sides and the bottom of this cylinder, into which ure fitted the rods on the ends of tho rollers,
and when in position the faces of the
rnllers just touch the cylinder. An endless cloth bund comes to each of the
rollers from below (euch band works in
a color pan), which contains in liquid
form the coloring matter to be carried
on the roller to which the band belongs.

Anything, a bird, a kite, even a very

may catch you? No, not specially, but
because microbes will get after you. If
ynu carry gold about wilh you, lhe doctor

must dangerous sort live longer on gold-
pieces than anywhere else—almost. The
number of bacteria found on thc surface
of ihe coins varies considerably—on silver

Kin-h eye Is controlled by six muscles,
nnd the point of vision Is only one-

A guud way to develop paralysis of the
facial muscles is to let the barber wash
