Tho quartz ledges of tlie Coeur d'Alene
gold belt arc divided into two distinct
classes, says the Murray (Idaho) GOlTe*
spondent of the Spokane Hpokpsnmn-K-j-
view. The ono on which the most work
lias heen done are small veins running
from a few inches up to lliree or four feet,
the value is ordinarily only $■' to $S per
ton. There are frequently pocket* found
iu all of thein which will run as high ns
$201)0 or even higher. These pockets are
sometimes quite ex tensive, uh much as
$00,000 having- heen taken from a single
porket, and several others have closely approached these figures Jf one of these
veins is opened at a pocket it can he
worked by poor men, an enough ean be
taken front the pocket to open up the
claim and tide the owners over until another pocket te struck. If n pocket Is not
found at thst the owner holds on, doing
bis annual assessment work, knowing
that sooner or later he will strike one, and
if it is one of considerable size he will be
independent thereafter No mine will ever
be found among ledges of this class that
will become known throughout the mining
world, although there will be a lot oi
them that will make comfortable fortunes
for their owners, und a combination of
several of thein may become a really great
mine. It is in these ledges that the success of the camp lies, as they will always
insure ti divided ownership. The other
doss are large leads running from 10 feet
in width upwards to oO feet or even more.
While extremely rleh ore has been taken
from them, in the main they run more
regular values than thc small leads, and
from a. few assays taken at random one
ean determine pretty closely what the
average Value of thc vein will be, barring
the change that will come with depth.
These will run from $8 to $15 per ton, a
value that would pay well if the gold
could be readily extracted, but the ore is
generally base after the first few feet below tlie first surface, and it requires expensive appliances to work them to advantage. While it costs $28 per ton for
freight nnd smelter treatment, and without extensive plants of the most approved
machinery a large part of the assay value
is lost in thc tailings, little can be done
with thein by men of limited means.
Eventually numbers of them lying contiguous to each other will come into the
possession of men or companies of large
means and they will develop into rivals
of the Homestake and Treadwell. While
most of the wealth of tlie district will
finally come from the leads of this class,
they will not be of so great value to the
camp as the small ones, for they will
throw the control into the hands of too
few men. While gold and silver form the
principal values of this class of leads,
there is some lead and copper in them, one
of them in particular, which is now in
mind, having pretty general assay returns
of 10 per cent lead. Of course there are
some exceptions to this general classification, but the differences noted here will
apply to nine out of ten of the veins iu the
gold belt.
Thc  Iron   Col*.
The property of the Iron Colt Gold Mining Company, Limited] which consists of
thc Iron Colt mine, situated on Columbia
and Kootenay mountain, in the Rossland
district, has been optioned to an English
syndicate. The terms of the option are
private, but it is suid to be about $100,000.
The purchasers, it is said, are amply supplied with funds and stand ready to expend a large amount for development
work. The sum of $30,000 has been expended in development work, and the
property is fairly well opened. What is
now needed is capital to sink to a lower
level. Thete iB a strong lead uncovered
that is from 0 to 35 fe'et wide, 80 feet in
depth and 300 feet in length (one of thc
largest ore chutes in thc camp), and runs
about $0.50 a ton. Thero are 2500 tons on
the dump. The company was incorporated
in October, 1890, with a capital Btock of
share, and thc money so derived was spent
$1,000,000. Some 240,000 shares of the
treasury stock was sold at 15 cents per
in the work of development. There is still
a balance in the treasury. There arc also
some 40,000 shares of the treasury stock
on hand. The ore of thc Iron Colt contains an excess of iron and is therefore in
demand for flux. Thc smelters pay a
bonus for each unit of iron contained in
sueh ore. The property is highly valued
by the chief shareholders, and Borne of
them are loath to part with their holdings, because they think tlte property has
merit, ft is believed that richer ore
chutes will be encountered when a greater
depth has been reached.
1'lerre'n Lake Dlalrlct.
K. T. Trimble of Colfax was on the reservation the other day for thc purpose of
viewing thc work done on propeity in
which lie is interested on Sulphide mountain, in the Pierre's Lake district. Mr.
Trimble is president of the Sulphide
Mountain Milling and Mining Company,
composed of business men of Portland and
Colfax. The ore is copper and galena, and
runs well in gold and silver. A small
crew has been at work this winter sinking
a shaft, which is down about 50 feet. The
ledge is quartz, with diorite and slate on
the foot wall, serpentine gangue rock and
porphyry on the hanging side. It runs
northeast and southwest, dipping a little
to thn east. At 30 feet a crosscut was made.
The ledge had widened considerably from
the surafce and showed a fine ore body of
from four to five feet. Assays taken from
the ledge at this depth gave a value of
$58.28; of this, $17.34 was in gold, the remainder being copper, lead and silver.
Work is to be pushed to the 100-foot level,
where another crosscut will bc made, and
it is thought that the company will be in
position to ship ore by that time   Tlte

highest price ever paid for the slock in
this part of lhe country Hand Him of
Vancouver, of which firm 0. li. Hand of
Spokane is a member, are heavily interested in tlie property, and through their j
efforts the deal Iiiih been made. The slock
of the company will be taken in hand by
lliree leading brokers of the London stock
exchange and will be sold at not less than [
0 cents per share, wbich will net $700,000

Highly Important developments are
taking place in upper lloisc, where the
IV in Spri rigs I Macer Com pa ny a nd tlie
Upper Uoise Hydraulic Company have
been putting in large plants for working
the high bars marking the old channel of
tbe stream. The Twin Springs Company
has had a giant playing on a 00-foot bank
on Buckley flat for some lime, and the
ground is found to yield 00 cents a yard.
This result is regarded as phenomenal.
There are vast deposits of gravel in high
bars, and it is said they will keep the
companies busy for many years.
Marble on the Clearwater.
A remarkable discovery of marble along
the Clearwater above Agatha last fall has
resulted already in fostering another industry in the line of burning lime Samples of the marble were sent to different
parties for testing, who reported most favorably on the qualities. And as marble
makes a fine quality of lime, parties took
bold of it and have,just finished burning
a fine kiln. With tlte railroad extended
up the Clearwater, this enterprise will be
given a stimulus.
She's little and modes*! and party,
As fresh as a rose, and us sweet;
Her children don't ever look dirty,
Her kitchen ain't uo wu.v but neat.
She's the kind of a woman Id cherish,
A help to a feller through life.
Yet every old lieu in tbe parish
Is down uu the minister's wife,
'Twbh Mrs. 'Life Hawkins begun It;
She alters bez had the Idee
That the church wus built no's she could
run it,
'Caime Hawkins is deacon, you see.
She thought that the hull congregation
Jest marched to the tune of her life,
But she found 'twas a wrong calkerlutlon
Applied tn the minister's wife.
Then Mrs. .ledge .Teaks got excited,
She thinks she's the hull upper crust—
Wheu she heerd the Smiths wus invited
To ineetin' she quit in disgust.
"You inuy have all the paupers you choose
Sez she, jest as sharp as a knife,
"But if they go to church, I refuse to."
"Good-by!" sea the minister's wife.
And then Mrs. Jackson got stuffy
At her uot comln' sooner to call,
And old Miss MacGregor Is huffy
'Cause she went up to Jackson's at all.
Each one of the crowd bates the other,
The church hez bin full of their strife;
But now they're all hutin' another,
And that one's the minister's wife.
But still, all the cuckle unheediu',
She goes in her ladylike way,
A glvin' the poor what they're needtn',
And helpin' the church every day.
Our numbers each Sunday is swelling
And real true religion is rife,
And sometimes 1 feel like a-yellin',
"Three cheers for the minister's wife!"

Tells   lion*  He   Would   Have Carried
On  IIIn Campaign*
Brussels, April 23.— The Xew Yurk
World correspondent colled on Dun Carlo**
at his hotel and obtained the following
declaration from him:
"If the Cut-lists had been in power in
Spain, war would have been inevitable
two years ago. Hut Sj-ain has erred on
the ?ide of generosity and chivalry, and
thus gone lengths hardly compatible with
national honor. The United States has
takeu advantage of this attitude and has
utilized the interval by strengthening her
Meet, lint we Spaniards are tough fighters ami enter the contest fearless of consequences, We thank tho holy father for

The World correspondent bad expressly
asked for the reply to the question whether lion Carlos would, under all circumstances through his sympathizers with
Spain, support the present government
against. America, but on that crucial point
ho preserved a significant silence.
The pretender's sudden removal from
Ostoml to Brussels has excited much comment. His intention is believed to have
been to go on a visit to Earl Ashburnhain,
his chief supporter in England, but owing
to popular indignation against Spain he
was advised that such a visit would bc
impolitic. He therefore went to Brussels

Washington, April 23. — An infernal

Fashionable Stays Costly.
An American authority ou woman's
dress, commenting on the fact that a
Loudon court recently expressed amused astonishment because a woniau had
paid $25 for a pair of corsets, says that,
as an actual fact, considerably more
than this sum Is constantly paid for
stays mnde to order. Then, again, a
pair of corsets are often but part of a
regular costume, owing to the fact that
the brocade of which tbey are made
matches exactly the material of which
Is composed the underskirts to bc worn
with them. The very plainest corsets
made to order at any good house cost
betweeu ?10 and $15, nud they are
worth the money paid for them, for
tbey last a great deal longer than
ready-made slays, being composed,
down lo the thread with which they
arc stitched, of the very best materials.
Keeping* Clothes Smart,
It ls tbe tumbling about on chairs and
bedposts tbat ruins quantities of
clothes, and thus dresses are ofteu
"worn out" while not being worn In tbe
actual Beuse. A Philadelphia authority
advises women to bang nil dress waists
and skirts, but suspend them on "coat
bangers," uot on hooks or nails. The
way shopkeepers care for ready-made
garments Is an excellent object lesson.
If you can't get tbe ready-made article,
manufacture It. Half n barrel hoop,
with a loop of string In the middle,
makes a satisfactory substitute. Hang-
lug only serves for heavy fabrics, not
when tbey are of thin goods. In that
case, garments nre apt to become
stringy. Light materials must be folded, sleeves aud liows stuffed out with
tissue paper and all given plenty of
room. Skirls should be brushed when
taken off and then put nway at once.

And so she came home without loss
of time.
Ithoda Darkrldge, In no wise abashed
by the successive failures of her sisters,
was the third one to try Black Grange
und Ils possibilities. But she also succumbed before the terrible scourge of
Uncle Black's savage tongue.
"It's scold, snarl, snarl, scold, from
morning till night:" suid Ithoda, as In
three days' time she tearfully relnted
her experience to her parents. "Oh,
you don't know—nobody can know—
what a dreadful man Uncle Black Is!"
"Oh, hang the old scamp!" said Mr.
Darkrldge, who was of a free-and-easy
nature, nnd thought his girls a great
deal 1oo sweet and nice to be snarled at
by any rich old miser. "Let him alone.
My daughters needn't go begglug for
any man's money."
But here   Joscellnd,   tbe   youngest,
tallest and prettiest of  tbe four girls,
spoke up:
"I'll go!" said she.
"You don't know what you are undertaking," said Naomi, with a shudder.
"He'd wear out a stone," said Mngdnlenn.
"He's a ghoul!" shuddered Rhoda.
"I can get along with hiin, I am very
sure," said Joscellnd, brightly.
And she packed up her little trunk
ami went to Black Grange.
It was sunset—a red, flaming sunset
like one of Gilford's pictures—when she
came up the terraced flight of steps tbat
led to the house. Everything blushed
blood-red lu the deep light, aud Joscellnd could si* how lovely was the
scenery, bow substantial this old gray
bouse, wilh Its square towers aud semicircular, colonnaded porch. Uncle
Black stood ou the steps.
"So you are Joscellnd?" said be. surveying her wllh little twinkling eyes,
I like glass beads.
"Yes, I am Joscellnd," said the
.bright-cheeked girl, giving him a kiss.
j "You're late!" said Uncle Black.
I "I am lale," said Joscellnd. "1
i thought the old beast of a stage never
would have gol here. The horses fairly
crept and the roads were horrid."
"It's a dreadful warm dny," growled
i Uncle Black.
| "I'm almost roasted," sighed Joscellnd.
| "The whole summer has been Intolerably warm," snhl the old gentleman.
I "We might ns well be In the tropics,
n.nd be done with It," retorted Joscellnd, Hinging off her shawl and fanning
herself vehemently,
I    Uncle Black gave her the keys that
night, Just as he had three times before
' given them to her three sisters.
j    "I shall expect you to take charge of
tbe   whole  establishment,"   said     he.
"Tbe servants are miserable "
j "No more than oue might expect." In-
' terrupted Joscellnd, with a deprecatory
I motion of the hand. "Servants are
lucre frauds nowadays!"
j "And uothlng goes right nbout the
' place."
"Nothing ever does!'' snld Joscellnd.
Uncle Bluck eyed her queerly.    This
.was quite different   from   the  deter
mined cbcefulness aud systematic good
spirits of her sisters.

said Joscellnd, Imperiously, "Here.
Betty—this coffee Isn't til lo drink! and
the toast is burned! and you must have
put the cooking butler on the table by

at once."
Betty retired wllh an ominous rustle
on her sillily starched apron,
"My dear," said Uncle Black, apprehensively, "Betty Is a very old servant,

Uncle Black began to look frightened.    Ile had kepi Belly. Sylvia and
old John for ten years. Was it possible that he hail scolded al them for leu
years, only to have Joscellnd Darkrldge

Joscellnd, with the nlr of au empress.

Uucle Black ate the rest of his breakfast with but little appetite. Sylvia,
the housemaid, was finishing dusting

"Not   ihrough  yet!"  growled   Uncle I
Black, the fretwork of wrinkles once

"Sylvia." said Miss Darkrldge, severely, "If Ihis happens again I shall

years of age and Is a native of Pittsburg. Early In life be was left to shift

Tin-: United States have at last formally declared v/ar against Spain and
both countries are making every preparation possible for war, and .1 conflict
jnay be looked ier any day now. The
fear that other nations would be drawn
into the conflict seemH to be disappearing as one by one they are announcing
.that a decree of nutrality will be maintained. Cotnmyuce ing wilh noxt week
.the Miner will give thc- latest war news
obtainable, thereby keeping its readers
posted with regards to the movements
of both nations.

War is the principal topic ol the day
on the street. The arrival of the stage
from Marcus is eagerly watched for
every evening in order that the latest
war news may be learned from the Spokane daily papers, and it is no uncommon occurance to see as liij?h a*, six or
seven people grouped around one
paper drinking in evety word ol news
as 11 is read. People, who a woek ago
were condemning President McKinley
for delay, today are commending bun
Ior his sagacity.
The ro-.ent action ol G-*eat Ilritian In
deciding to treat coal as contraband of
war in her West Indian possessions is
causing considerable speculation. The
general opinion, and the only one that
oeems warranted by the information at
hand is that such action is entirely in
.the interest of the United Sta'es. This
is due largely to the fact the U. S, is so
near where the sea; of war will be that
she will be wholly Independent of the
coaling stations in the West Indies, and
her vessels nm procure coal at her own
ports. On the other hand, the only
available cosl supply Spain will have is
her stores at Porto Rico, which is more
.than likely will be one of the tirst poinls
attacked by the United Slates. II this
phce can be captured early in the war
.the coal supply of Spain will be almost
effectually cut off, which would undoubtedly mean an early termination of hostilities.
Resolutions Passed by the Electors of the

; In i I Boundary Crook district
(>) Creates the electoral district of
Rossland with a voting population of
Hoo votes—a number out of all propor-
■ion to that i : o'.her constituencies in the
(3 ) Leaves the rich and growing
Boundary Cre;lt distiict at the mercy of
tbc now more populous district of Ross-
land \ iein.ty.
(|.) Places in one constituency people
who have no business relations with
each other, who are separated by a high
range of mountains.
(5.) Creates a district tbat is dirjointed
and cumbersome, making it impossible
fer one member to attend to its require!
(6). Is an infamous gerrymander.
(7.) Leaves t e people of Boundary
Creek ci^ri'it without political power or
political influence.
(8) (lives them no voice in the government of tbe provii.e :.
(q) Introduces the barbarous policy
of taxation without rcprcsentaihui.
(10) ls based on the policy of government of the many by the few, perpetuates the evil of pocket boroughs, gives
extensive powers 10 small and sparsely
populated districts.
(it.) Is a measure vicious and dishonest, disgraceful to tho government whieh
introduced it and humiliating 10 those
whj supposed they lived in a province
blessed with responsible government,
Be it therefore

debicrincis of the laic firms of Manly
Averill &  Company
W. 3. Divey and J. A. Manly
After Dr. Averili.
THEY     UiE     DYNAA11TE
Two Law Suits That Will  Be oi Interest to the Residents of
Grand   Forks.
Wm. B. Davey, plaintiff vs George A.
Averill, '-'eteudant, is the title of nn action recently commenced belore the supreme court at Vancouver, wherein
plaintiff claims damages for fraudulent
misrepresentation on tbc sale of defen-
dant's business as general merchant al
Grand Forks, B. C., and of his book
debts and securities, suid sale having
been made on Juu. 7th, iSylj, and dam
ages for nondelivery of ceitain securities and of a certain judgement debt
which wore represented us assets at
time of said sale:
And to havo a bill of sale and an
agreement both bearing date Jan. 7th,
1898, and made between the defendant
and the plaintiff rectified in so far as
they are affected by said fraudulent
.misrepresentation and non-delivery, and
to have a bond given by plaintiff to defendant and bearing da,te Jan. 7ih, 189S,
or thereabouts, set aside or rectified 01
cancelled as having been sufficiently
-fulfilled as to its conditions.
And for an injunction restraining the
/defendant from negotiating or enforcing
ythe above securities and judgment
The facts connected with this case
are known to many of the readers of the
Miner, and in substance are about as
>In January 1897 the firm ol Manly et
Averill purchased a large stock of gen-
.eral merchandise in anticipation of a
large trade. These goods were purchased on thirty, sixty and ninty days
time, and owing to the general stagnation of business which followed in the
.spring of the same year the firm was unable to meet its obligations. Sometime
in the early part of June, J. L. Ballan-
tyne purchased an interest in tho business ot the tirm of Manly & Averill, and
was placed in chaige of the business,
with the_hope that he would be able to
retreive the business which tbe firm of
Manly & Averill had lost by bad business methods.
In August several suits were commenced against the firm of Manly &
Averill, and judgments were rendered
against the firm.
About this time John A. Manly disposed of all his interests in the store
business and firm real estate in Grand
Forks to J. L. Ballantyne in consideration of Ballantyne and Averill
entering into an aj-y. emeut with him indemnifying bim, Manly, against the
debts of the partnership, which amounted to about f 17 000.
Averill & Ballantyne then set about
getting an extension Irom the croditors,
Dr. Averill taking some two weeks in
getting an extension from all the heaviest creditors. Averill & Ball.intync
.then endeavored to negotiate a loan
on the partnership real estate, an undivided one-halt of which had been
transferred from Manly to Ballantyne,
with the proceeds ol which loan they intended to pay off the greater portion ol
the firm indebtedness, and thereby putting the business on an easy financial
On going into the title of the firm real
estate they found it so tangled up that
it would require two or three quitclaim
deeds Irom John A Manly to place the
title in such a position tbat they could
raise lhe loan on it. They requested
Manly to execute these deeds, but he,
it is claimed, refused to straighten
the titles, although he waa by law bound
to do so, yet it would mean a lawsuit of
several months duration. In the meantime the creditors, growing weary of delay would have closed up the business.
The result was that by reason of Manly
refusing to straighten the titles to thc
property he had conveyed to Ballantyne,
Averill & Ballantyne failed to get their
loan, the direct result of which was that
the sheriff took possession of the stock
in trade, remained in possession for several weeks causing hundreds of dollars
of expense to Averill & Ballantyne,
which could easily have been prevented.
The Sheriff was finally got out by Dr.
Averill, after several unsucessful attempts, raising some monoy in Spokane
on some firm notes. Another attempt
was made to get Manly to straighten the
title to the land which he had conveyed
(0 Ballantyne and in which ho had no
interest whatever, but he still refuued.
About this time Mr, Ballantyne gol disgusted with the way Manly had acted,
sold out bis Interest in the business to
Averill and returned to Ontario.
Dr. Averill canied on the business up
till abaut the 1st ot January last, when
W. B. Davey, ^appeared nn the
scene, he came to Averill and asked
pirn to sell out the-stare business, au1,
at the urgent request of John A M-tnly,
Averill sold out lhe whole 6tore busi
ness and partnerslrio re-il estate to
Divey, without an/ consideration o her
than a bond, given by Davey to Averill,
indemnifying him, Averill, against ihe
partnership debt*:. Au agreement wns

It will be noticed that by tho loims 0!
of the agreement D.ivey agrees to pay
£3500 within 70 days from the 7 of January 1897, and tbe deeds were deposited
in escrow in the bank of British North
America, Rossland, until said payment
had been made. This payment has
been made, but be now refuses to make
any further payment to the creditors of
the old firm, claiming that an investigation of the books of the firms showed an
indebtedness of something over $24,000
instead of the amount claimed by
Avenll ut tiro time of the sale, and as a
result suits for sums aggregating $6,000
have been commenced against the firm
of Manly & Averill.
John A. Manly, plaintiff vs Geo. W.
Averill and Airs. Flora Averill, defendants. The plaintiff's claim is against
G. W. Averill on a bond conditioned to
keep the plaintiff indemnified against
all the debts and liabilities of the late
firm of Manly & Avenh and of Manly,
Averil fe. Com pany; and to have a decree directing the said defendants to
convey an undivided 1-10 interest and
an undivided 1-6 interest in the Sunset
mineral claim situate in the Granite
Creek Mining Division; and to have set
aside a certain deed or deeds whereby
the plaintiff conveyed to the defendants
fee simple of lot 14, in block 1, in tbe
city of Grand Forks, and lots 4 and 5 in
block 1, East Addition to Grand Forks;
and lor a lis pen dens; and asks to have
the defendants restrained from disposing of any interests thoy have in the
aforesaid mineral ciaims or real estate.
To say tho least John A. Manly is
very modest in his request considering
the fact that Dr. Averilt paid hiin $10,-
500 when he cu-nc here, and practically
paid all the money that was paid inlo
the store business, while he was in it.
Of course this is not tiers to our
readers, Nearly everyone in Grand
Forks has heard the threats made by
Mr. Manly that he would not quit
until bi chase 1 Dr. Avenll out of the
countty, had possession of his big houso
and everything he had. In fact he
seriously though of bringing criminal
proceedings against Averill and it was
so rcpoitcd on tbc strict.
Dr. Averi'l on being seen by a Miner
representative stated tbat ha bad
endeavored to keep cut of litigation but
now that itjhad been forced upon him,
he proposes to give theso people all
they want of it befoie they are through
with it, and if they get anything out of
me they I will have to show their
grounds for it. The doctor has retained
the best counsel at the coast. As the
matters are now sub judlce, we refrain

North   Fork river   last Tuesday afternoon.
About three o'clock a large log lodged
against the middle and v.'-ysl piers of the
bridge anil all efforts to remove it weie
fruitless. Frank Fortier, who ht.d
charge of the movement to dislodge the
log, concluded that i: would bo an easy
mat er to blow it oul with giant powder.
This-idea seemed 10 meet the approvi
of the rubberneck association, and a j
messenger was dispatched for the necessary implements of war. He scon re-1
turned with fifteen sticks cf this harmless looking stuff which was placed iuto
a gunny-sack. In turn thc sack was
tied to thc end of a long pike pole and
placed in the water in such a manner
that the current carried the sack under
thc log. A match was touched to the
fuse and everyone anxiously waited the
result. Talk about the Maine explosion! Well, if you had seen that log go
up, you would have thought that some
one had placed a submarine mine in tlie
bottom of the river. Nut only the log
but a large portion of the middle section of the bridge went to. The air for
a hundred feet up and in all directions
was filled with pieces of logs, bridge
timbers, etc. A daughter of Mrs. Mader, who resides at the end of the
bridge, happened to come out of the
door just as the explosion occurred and
narrowly escaped being hit by a large
piece of falling timber.
At first: everyone was cf the opinion
that tho west span of the biidge was
completely wrecked. But examination
proved that such was nut the case, eiud
beyond the blowing eff of tlie planking
of the bridge, and the breaking of two
or throe of thc brace beams, jpo damage
had been done. Every available car-
pcoter war, at once put to work and. the
bridge was repaired so that travel could
he resumed by midnight.
For the last two or three years the
practice of blowing out driftwood
lodged against the bridge his been followed and this is the tirst time that any
accident has occured.

Friday May 13th is the Tims Set for the
Municipal Election.
There is very little public interest so
far displayed iu municipal politics, and
everyone seems to be waiting fnr tbe
proclamation cf the lieutenant governor
setting a day for the holding of lhe election.
Mr. Peter T. McCallum has declared
positively that he will not be a candidate for mayor, executing that cither
John A. Manly or L, A. Manly, comes
out, then he is in the field to stay. As it
is almost a certainty that   one   or   the
other of Ihem will be a candidate, Peter | and llis [ricad5 ;lre mMng a sUm,
might us we'l commence grooming his
mayoralty horse.
Jeff Davis is out for the mayorship
straight, tbis time, and nothing else.
Friends of John A. Manly say positively that he will not l)g a candidate
this year. This is contrary, however, to
Mr. Manly's declarations when he was
in the city the last time. But as that
gentleman will be here some time next
week he will have an opportunity lo
lo speak for himself.
A large number of the friends of W.
K. C. Manly are very anxious for him to
enter the race, but up to date, he has
positively declined lo mix up 111 the
matter again.
The number of prospective aldermen
is above the average at this stage of the
cause, and taking everything into con-
sidetatlon the prospects are that there
willbe a very interesting contest when
the time comes.
There is onething cerlain, and that is,

think tliat I would not be here now if
it had not been for Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound. It cured me of
a fibroid tumor in my womb. '
they could not cure me at the hospital.
I will tell you about it:
" I had been in my usual health, but
had worked quite hard. When my
monthly period came on, I flowed very
badly. The doctor gave me medicine,
but it did me no good. He said tho
flow must be stopped if possible, and
he must find the cause of my trouble.
*' Upon examination, he found there
was a fibroid tumor in my womb, and
gave me treatment without any benefit
whatever. About that time a lady
called on me, and recommended Lydia
| E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound;
said she owed her life to it. I said J
would try it, and did. Soon after the
fiow became more natural and regular.
I still continued taking the Compound
for some time. Then the doctor made an
examination again, and found everything all right. The tumor had passed
away, and that dull ache was gone."
It can be truthfully stated that
such a result can be accomplished by no
other remedy upon the market, and
forcibly proves the peculiar virtue of

■ The cremation of Francis Willard, fol-
1 lowing that of several other famous people, BllOWS that the new mode of treat*
I ing the dead is increasing in popularity,
says tlie New York Mail and Express.
When it was started, nearly thirty years
ngo, it was a nine days' gossip. At the
time the theosophists cremated Baron do
Palm and strewing his ashes in the
waters of the Hudson it was the talk of
the city. Jtut now it is so common that
no one pays any attention to the practice.
Curious enough, the chief opposition to
it, today comes from several of the
churches, This is hard to understand, as
the early Christians were almost as much
in favor of cremation as they were of in-
limitation., aud as the church at another
period made use of the hones of dead
Christians to ornament the walls of the
catacombs. So strong was the belief in
Immortality at that time that the body
was viewed as a more husk, whieh was
scarcely worthy of attention after the
bouI had left it. In some of the Italian
catacombs the number of skeletons employed in decorating the walls is measured by the thousands.

New Ways of Living; Bring* New Bales
in Manners.
That element of gallantry which Is
nothing more than a hypocritical display of Insincere devotion has for many
years tended to disappear and ln the
march of progress will continue to do
so, not more because of the widening of
woman's interests than because of the
broader view of life and one's duty toward one's neighbor among both men
and women, says the Springfield Republican. True gallantry, In Its best
and slncerest form, will never be "out
of date" as long ns men are men and
women are women. Men will always
respect women and If gallantry be paid
to Intellectuality rather than to Ignorance lt Is no less gallantry.
A man who gives up his seat ln a
street car to a pretty girl and then goes
home nnd "kicks" because dinner ls uot
ready Is not gallant. With new ways
of living for both men and women,
gallantry must take new forms, adapting Itself to conditions, but lt will ever
exist In the hearts and be shown In the
actions of generous men and noble women.
A homely bit of gallantry was enacted ln this city a few days ago by a
driver of an ordinary, everyday watering-cart. A woman had a fall from her
bicycle Just In front of the street sprinkler nnd although not at all hurt her
hands were considerably the worse for
contact with the dirt of the road. The
driver watched her from his high seat
aud then called out cheerily: "Want to
wash your hands, mlss'i" She admitted that It would be a desirable thing,
so the mnn turned on a small stream
from his cart and held his horses still
while the woman washed her dirt-covered hands. Then, acknowledging her
'Thank you" with a smile and a bow,
he drove on nnd the wopian resumed
her ride. The driver's action was as
true gallantry as ever knight performed in olden time—and such as Parisians
would uever think of.
Press Blunders.
Probably no article on typographical
errors ever appeared without containing a typographical error, unless the
proofreader has been fortunate enough
to Intercept on the way to the press the
mistakes whioh seemed to be predestined for that very list of mistakes. A
queer blunder recently appeared ln a
New York Journal's elaborate article on
Iu this article the following paragraph occurs:
"The account of the locomotive striking a car and cutting her Into 'calves' ls
perfectly understandable."
No doubt this would have been "understandable" If the word "car" had
been printed "cow," as It was written,
and ns It stands In the traditional Joke
which forms the basis of thc story.
With some of his other stories the author of the article had better success.
He tells of the author of a classic Roman drama who, by the undeslred aid
of the printer, mnde his hero exclaim,
"Bring me my togs!" Instead of "Bring
me my toga!"
He relates that one of Mr. Black's
heroines ouce perished from swallowing a dose of "opinion" Instead of
opium; nnd that ouce there was a
proofreader, one of a sporting eleven,
who hnd rend for the first time the title
of Dickens' "Cricket on the Hearth."
"Impossible!" said thc proofreader;
"you can't play cricket In a fireplace,"
and he corrected lt (o read, "Cricket om
the Heath."
A famous aud dreadful blunder was
once made In nn advertisement, where
mistakes of the sort are comparatively
Infrequent, by reason of greater ea.re;
a blunder In an advertisement may be
expensive. The advertisement of a
great manufacturer of marmalade was
mnde to read:
"Blank's preserves are not to be
A "b" had dropped out before the
"eaten." It was probably an engraver,
nnd not a compositor, who made a wedding invitation rend, "Your presents ls
requested" Instead of "presence." Barring the grammar, this version would
be well enough In n great many cases.
An old English newspaper, mentioning the absence of the prime minister,
said: "Sir Robert Peel, with a party of
flat'ds. Is shooting pheasants In Ireland." This might have beeu no Joke
In nn opposition paper, but this one was
friendly lo Peel Instead of being "flend-
ly" to hlm.
Uncle Bill's   Letter.
We hud a note the other day from uncle

He sent bis photergraph along, an' In his

He's livin' on a ranch alone au' uever yet

"I guess the Mnynnrd girl sjill lives," he
wrote, "tin's pretty still—
She who wus known as lloxey when I to
her was Bill?"
Wc showed the photergrnph ter her—she
rend the letter through,
An' with a little sigh she said, a little
nervous, too:
"Well, Mr. Smith deserves good luck—a
noble heart, God kiiow-B-,"
An' then ber face turned strangely like a
white and wilted rose.
Perhaps the kind words fetched a chord
thnt straightway felt a thrill—
"She who waa known us Roxey when 1 to
her was Bill."
Ah, undercurrents of nil lives!   •   •   •   •
Around her children play;
She hns a husband who is kind—an' yet
who knows, thut dny
When she remembered thut one henrt In
all the world of care
Still  turned  to her   ia   tenderness   an'
thought her pnlc checks fair,
She felt a pnng of deep regret—longed for
the old dream still,
When one wns known as Roxey, an' one

Japanese Doctors.
In Japan doctors tie not charge for
their services, but, ou the contrary, decline to name an amount, and protest
against nny Idea of remuneration. The
patients, on their side, are too proud to
accept such services free, and send to
the doctor, not as a fee, but more ns a
friendly gift or token of gratitude, a
sum of money proportionate to tbe
menus of the giver, wllh some piece of
silk, bronze, or lacquer work, tbe Idea
being Hint medical attendance Is by far
of too Important nud elevated a character to be desecrated by barter for
filthy lucre.

Nobody 1ms expected, nor 1ms anybody
had tho right to expect, thnt a perfect
government would spying Into existence
in Cuba immediately upon tho downfall
of Spanish rule, says tho Washington
Star. Such a thing could nt.t possibly
he. Tho island has been torn with mis-
government and contentions for a groat
many years, Tlie people, necessarily,
havo given thought principally to their
distresses, Thoy have had little time, for
anything else. United, as thoy have beon,
iu thoir detestation of Spain and her
methods, they have devoted themselves
to organization for tho purpose of throwing off the Spanish yoke.
Hut. tbeir aspirations upon tho point
of better government are clear, They are.
looking here for thc model of that which
thoy think would bc tbe host model for
them. A government of the people, by the
people, and for the pooplo, adjusted to
Cuba as that government is adjusted to
the United Slates, is the object of their
desires. And who shall say tliat it is n..t
within their reach? Not working perfectly at once, of course. Our own government started off slowly and encountered many difficulties, but by the exercise of patience and firmness wo succeeded.
The main point, as thc Star stated a
few days ago, te to got rid of Spain. Tho
problem then becomes one appealing to
ovory man in Cuba whp desires the betterment of his own and tho general condition. It will bo difficult in the extreme.
It will demand sacrifices, just as thc revolution lias demanded sacrifices. Tiie
United States will lend lis aid, and with
that aid failure will be impossible.
