The Rough and
Ready Way
of judging Blanket values is by comparing
���Weights. A seven-pound blanket is generally
supposed to be worth more.than a six-pound
one. Berhaps! Housekeepers know that
blanket worth lies in wear and warmth. This
Iheans weight to an extent, certainly, but
'Quality more than all elsa Judging by
weight is only half judging and the method
ha*Ving the evil merit of a little truth is particularly dangerous. A blanket may weigh
heavy, have a soft, wooly finish ana yet to
worthless as far as durability is concerned.
T^he weight may be cottffli'or shoddy so covered with the wooly surface that you cannot get
at the warp���the foundation���to see how tne
blanket structure is really built. Come to see
our Blankets and let us demonstrate their real
make up. If you want weigh t we can accommodate you up to Twelve Pounds. Good
qualities are so low in price that buying the
Unreliable, "just as good" kinds is a real
extravagance. ,

The preapeels of North Kast Kootenay, and of Golden as its centre, have
never been bettor than at the prenent'
time. There is not a house to bo had
in Golden anii a dozen now buildings
coald be lot to-morrow if tbey were
provided. Tho rich mineral strikes
made around Golden nnd Winderpnero*
ttus season havejaroiijdit Nerth East'
Kootenay to tho front among tho mining camps of tht Province.
Complaints have been frequent
of late as to the unreliability of ; ltd
time-board at lbs Golden railway
station. On two occasions of late
trains have boen posted from two to
four hours late when they came in on
time. Wo do not know who is responsible, but already much incon-
veuieuoo has beea caused to travellers
by this serious irregularity, nnd th:;
Board of Trade intend representing the
matter to headquarters with a view to
haying the matter Investigated and
corrected for tho future.
Thanks to tho efforts of Mr Mullholland, Golden has awakened to the fact
that this town commands tho key of,
tho Upper Columbia Valley, and it is
now a certainty that a telephone line
will be laid from Oolden to Windermere district immediately, thus giving
Windermere di trict the advantage -of
telegraphic communication. Such
communication ti urgently needed in a
uatnp like Windermere, while by running in from Golden the effect will hn
to place this town in tho position of being tho supply point for that important
section of country. We hope the rest,
dents of Golden will loyally Hnd vigor
ously support the project now afoot
and make a success oi it.

Roport of W. F. Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist
Thit basin lios at tho very head of
the Spillimachene Kiver and 30 in ilea
from Carbonate Landing, the basin at
nn elevation af- over 8,000 feot. while
the claims on the hillside extend up to
a height of over 9,000 feet, continuing
over the summit into the Duncan river
country of West Kootenay.
The basin is above timber line and Is
surrounded hy glaciers. t The trail
passes over tho foot of one glacier
which extends dowu iuto the valley te
an tduvtuiou as low as 6,200 feet.
Tiie slope of the hides of the basin is
20*, brotcou by small plateaux aud cor-
ered with ruck slides, above which the
cliff* ris** seemingly perpendicularly.
The development work dono on the
laintH shows that there is a system of
large quartz ledge* cutting thrpugh
the basin about N. 70" W., and plainly
visible, continuing np tho face of tlw
cliff, cutting the (dates and shales
comprising the country rook. A secondary aeries of crobs course veins,
evidently of later origin, cuts the main
lodgos mostly at right augles.
These secondary veins are much
smaller than the main ledges, but
seem to be more highly mineralised,
I reached the basin on Sept. 23rd
and .was iiufommata hi that a heavy
fall of snow, of tho previous day, lay
oa the ground, filling up all tho open
cuts nnd covering all the dumps, so
that I was not ablo to make as minure
an observation aa I should have liked.
The principal claims are noted further on with as much detail as was
possible under thecitcumatances. The
main quartz lodges, mentioned as cutting the cliffs, .continue .right through
the hill, and on the other side of the
hill upon these ledges, and others
similar, is located the much-talked oi
Beuuitjon group. 'This group, although
lying within less than a mile of the
bnsln, I was uuublo to reach, ai tho
trail led over a dangerous glacier, and,
with fresh snow on the ground such
gerons to be risked, leaving as the alternative a trip of over 60 miled
around to ictmh this group.
A Crown-granted claim, 1.500 hy
OOO feet, owned by J, L. Spink et al.,
of Toronto, and situated at the upper
right-liuml corner uf thr basin at nn
elevation of 8,400 feet. There are at
least two Btl'oilg main (jtittrtz ledges
cutting through the property, the outcrops plainly traceable on tho surface

Win. McKay, Esq., a well known
and much respected farmer nnd mill
man at Clifford. Lunenburg Co., N. S
relates the following wonderful cure
effeotod iu his family by the use of JJ*f
Williams'Pink PilU:-"About three
years ago my llttlsdaughtorElla, then
a child of ten years, was attacked with
acute rheumatism. It was a .(prrlbly
bad case; for over a month eni was
confiuod to her bed, and during most
of the time was utterly holpless, being
unable to turn in bed, or in fact tn
move at ^11 without help. She could
not even hold anything in hn* band,
All power or mo of her limbs had entirely gona and'the pain .she suffered
was fearful. Hy coo&tant attention
after a month or so sho began to gain
a little strength, and after a while improved enough i to be taken out of tad
and even walked around a bit after a
fashion by means of a support. But
now she was seized with a worst) ailment than the rheumatism. Her nervous systejn gave. way. appeared
completely oTiatt'ere-?. She shook violently all the time, would tumble do .vn
in trying ib kwnlk. In attempting
to drink from a cup her hand, shook
so as to spill tbo contents all over
herself. She was a pitiable object.
T"''i8 doctors were called to hor again
and said she had St. Vitus' dance in
the worst form. She took thu medioine prescribed and followed tho instructions of hor physician for some
time, but .without apparent benefit.
Sho wasted away almost to a skeleton
and wer gave ha up for lost. About
tbis time I read in a paper an ao-
count of a great euro of nervousneaa
effected by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and resolved to try thom. I bought
six boxog and the littlo girl began
using thom. The good effects of the
first box wore quite apparent nnd whon
four limes were used, she soemed so
muoh improved that tho pills were
discontinued. She kept on improving
and after a fow weeks* was as well as
evar. We nyere told that lho curo would
not ia��t, that it was only somo powerful iiiRrodiont in the pills which wae
deceiving us and that aftep-t time the
child would ho worse than ever. All
this haa proved false, for now nearly
three years she has had unbroken good
health, nervofi as Strong us they arc
made, and stands school work and
household work as well as a mnturo
person. We havo no fleubt Dr., Williams' Pink Pills restored to us our
little girl, wbom we looked upon as
doomed to an early grave."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pilla area specific
fer diseases arising from aa impoverished condition of tbe blood or shattered nerves, suoh ee St. Vitus' dtinoe,
locomotor ataxia, rheumatism, paralysis, sciatica, the after effects of la
grippe, headache, dizziness, erysipelas,
scrofla, etc.- - Thoy are also a 8p6ctfc
for the troubles peculiar to the female
system, building anew the blood and
restoring the glow of health to pale
and sallow cbc&ts. Protect yourself
against imitations by insisting that
every box bears tbo fujl name Dr. Williams'Pink Pills for Palo People. If
your dealer does not have thorn they
will bo sent post paid, at fitt cents a

London, Sept. UO,��� A dispatch to the
Daily Mail from Oharlestown says:
"Oommaudering is proceeding in the
Wakkerstroom district, and probably
thronghout the Transvaal. Two thou*
and burghers are assembled at Wakkerstroom, which is eight miles from the
Natal border, and eleven from Lalngs

Sandispet, fifteen miles west of tha
Natal bonndary, where they will meet
the Oraug-3 Free State artillery, whioh
has been lying low in this neighbor-
hood for a fortnight."
The Press Association issued the following statement yesterday evening:
"We learn that the centre* of interest
in the Transvaal controversy aro really
at Lisbon and Berlin and this consider*
ntion. it ie thought in some quarters,
way oanso a further adjournment of tbe
cabinet. The future administration
aud financial control of the Portuguese
possessions in South Africa ure held to
be an integral factor in the present
difficulty. The friends of President
Kruger urge tbat it would be manifest
ly unfair to insist upon a partial re<
Auction of the forts at Pretura and
Johannesburg as loug as Lorenzo Marques remains under the Portuguese gov-
eminent, and It is probable that the
negotiations between London, Berlin
nud Lisbon may not be concluded until
after the cabinet council"
The Odessa correspondent of the
Standard telegraphs: "There is a
rumor that Germany recently suggested
to Russia tbe advisability of mediation
between Great Britain and the Trans

auything to do with tbe matter."

Brandon, Sept. an.���According to a
rumor current here, thero has been a
somewhat startling revelation iu
connection with tbe past history of
Hilda Blake, who lies iu the Brandon
jail, tho confessed murderess of Mrs.
John Lane. It is staled that she wrote
a letter to Mrs. Stewart, of Virden, the
lady -with whom she lived previously,
in which she confessed that she had
murdered yonng Stewnri, who it was
thonght had committed suicide. Ibe
yonng fellow was fouud dead in the
honse, and the supposition was that be
had shot himself, suspicion having never rested on tho youug girl, Hilda.
Presumably her snecess in escaping the
results of this crime emboldened her to
commit a second. Had she identified
the tramp first, arrested for tbe mnrder
of Mrs. Lane she might still be free.
It is also stated that the girl wrote a
letter to Mrs. Stewart abont the time
she went to Winnipeg to purchase the
revolver with whioh she committed
hor latest crime, stating sbe was en

Scotsman Ashore on Belle Isle*
Montreal, Sept. 39���The steamer
Scotsman, of the Dominion line, is
ashore off Belle Mo. The steamer
Moutford has taken off 300 passengers,
and is now on hor way up the golf.
She passed Heat Point at 8 a.m.
A dispatch from Heat Point says the
Elder Dempster steamer Moutford
passed inward with 250 passenger.-* of
the Scotsman on board,
Tho news was received witb joy at
Moutreal as a large number of prominent people are on board whom there haa
been mnch anxiety. It is probable a

Among the passengers of the Dominion lioe steamship Scotsman are the
members of William Greet's London
company, whioh is to begin its fourth
American tour at the Academy ot
Music next Monday night.

Kastnlia, of the Donaldson line, nor
the Lake Superior, of tbe Beaver line,
both of which passed here this nioning
inward, had auy uews of the Scotsman,
reported ashore of Belle Isio. A dense
fog prevailed in the straits when they
passed through and they cuuld see
A subsequent dispatch received by
the Dominion line agents from the
operator at Change Islands, Newfoundland, was as follows: "The Scotsman
is ashore on a ledge, clcso into the
shore, five miles eastof Belle Isle light.
The passengers are all landed, but
there are no provisions in the island
station. All holds ot the ship nre fall.
Tbe ship is lyiug even. Immediate
assistance is imperative."
Change Islands, Newfoundland, is
140 miles south ot Belle Isle, ut the
south-east point of Notre Dame Bay.
It is rather remarkable that a dispatch
was sent from a point so fur from the
catastrophe, but tbe agents of the Dominion line at this port, D. Torrance
& Co., ore inclined to think the news
might have been taken thither in a fish
ing ��� boat. The following reply was
seut at once to Change Isluuds: "Assistance will be sent. Have asked gov

"I regret to uoto a universal opinion
that war is very near. Everywhere

They are arming, equipping and storing supplies for a protracted struggle.
The Transvaal government bas failed

pro- able enemy. The Dutch republics
will together be able to muster 85.000
men, nearly all mounted I learn that
tbe Free State has decided to put 10,
000 into the field.
Other dispatches from Pretoria and
Jobnnuesourg speak of tho probability
of hostilities within a week, one correspondent suys: "British subjects will
be given a certain period within wbioh
to quit the country. If they desire to
remain they must make application to
thai effect, and tbe application will be
considered ou its merits."
Another correspondent says: "Fonr
thousand rifles and a quantity of am*
munition have just arrived at Johannesburg and are being distributed by the
field cornei. The burghers of Pretoria,
4,000 in number, ure equipped and
waiting the order to advance."
The Oape Town correspondent of tbe
Daily News "says: "The pass of Laings
Nek will be occupied tomorrow, with
sufficient strength for present needs,
nuder the belief that the Boers will attack Natal immediately hoping to fore*
stall all the landing of the Indian contingent."

The secretary of state for war, tbe Marquis of Laudsdowu was busy until a

It is expected that the next British
note will virtually demand tbe absolute
fulfillment of tbo conventions of 1H81
uud 1884, whioh have been violated in
numerous points, but will accept a five
years' limit for the franchise. According tu tiiu ri-jiu.h wrttfsponaenc oi tne'

highest quarters there that a settlement
is even yet possible if Great Britain
will propose moderate terms, and at the

that these will be regarded as final.

An Indian's Hate.
He Tried to Tent It oo tl.e Whites,
bat Is Becolletl on Himself.
By Geori* H. Watty.
Jed Wilson nnd 1 wero neither ot us
much orer 20 when, In the reckless spirit
of adventure, wo joined a company of
threescore hardy fellows who were on
the point of starting off up tht Umpqut
After many dayi of the most difficult
travel we came at length In sight of an
Indian village, and, approaching this village to within a quarter of a mile, we
pitched our permanent camp.
We had not been there many minutes
before our redskin neighbors became
aware of our presence, and Immediately
they swarmed down upon as, displaying
the most hostile Intentions. The sight of
our weapons cowed tbem, and they saw It
would be best to leave ui alone.
The chief of the tribe wai ono Wnh-
kla-nn,' a tall, muscular Indian of perhaps 45. As the dnys went by Wah-kla-
na became quite a frequent visitor. His
favorite lounging place was the log cabin
in which Jed and 1 did the cooking.
One morning Jed discovered Wnb-kla-
na In the act of Jabbing a long, sharp
pointed piece of iron be Invariably car-
, ried in his belt Into the soup kettle, hoping, uo doubt, to fish out a nice hot chunk
of beef. This was more than my companion could stand.
Knocking the Iron out of the redskin's
band with a quick blow, Jed grabbed tbe
fellow by the scruff and the alack and
rushed bim ont of tbe cabin, quitting him
with a push thnt sent him sprawling upon the ground.
After thnt Wnh-kin-nn came to the
cookhouse no more, and in a month or so
the incident bad dropped completely from
our minds. But not from the Indian's.
In bis heart be nurtured vengennce.    *
One day wc learned thnt there emptied
Into tbe Unipqun a certain stream, tbe
exploration of which promised considerable sport. This tributary was known as
Smith's river, after an unfortunate trapper wbo bad been kilted by the Indians
many years before.
* Wben we had arranged our plans, we
made tbem known (o Wattle Linn, a
sturdy old backwoodsman who bad tak*
en quite a fancy to us youngsters nud
hud more than once proved himself a true
"Don't ye go, boys," said Wnttie.
"Why not?" asked Jed. "We cau manage the canoe all right."
" 'Talu't that."
"Wbat Is It, then?   Are you afraid pf
lk*>  I>i.llnt�� -oi.Ulserr  ����� **S"
"Wnnl, yes; that's about It," replied
Just as we were pushing off along came
"So yer bound to go, boys?" be said
half reproachfully. "Waal, good tnck to
ye. But look byar, I want ye to promise
'me a something. Ouess It'll take ye three
dnys to get up to Smith's, thar beta n
freshet In tho river, but n day ought to
fetch ye hack slick as grease. Now, give
me yer word, boys, to be back hynr by
five day* nt tbe latest���that Is, If ye kin."
We promised the old fellow and dipped
our paddles, Impatient to be off.
"Good, Inds, nnd uow look byar. If so
be as you meet trouble aiwl hev to quit
the ennne and tramp liouu- make tracks
down tba right bank of tbe rivor���the
right bank, do you hoar?"
Nothing particular happened until the
afternoon of the third day. We were
ripping along very quietly when suddenly
Jed reached over the side of the canoe
and fished something out of the water.
It proved to bo a small closely woven
Indian basket.
"That's bnd, Jed," I exclaimed. "Sure
as guns tber's redskins abend of us."
"We'd have met tbe beggars If they
had come down stream; so tbey must
have gone up," aald 1. "What's to It*
done, Jed?"
"Done! Go ahead and trust In Providence," replied Jed. "They may be
friendly or tbey may not Anyhow, we've
got our rifles."
"What's that yonder?" cried Jed, pointing to a bill a little distance ahead. Its
sloping side was dotted with what looked to be huts. We rested on our paddles
and gated upon the scene with silent
We found the cause of our wonder to
be an old Indian burying ground. The
hutlike risings were simply hillocks of
earth, each of which marked tbe resting
place of a warrior.
Paddling a mils or two farther along,
we camped for the night,
Aa soon aa It wai light enough we
���tarttd to mount to tbe top of what we
meant to be our long toboggan slide back
to Uinpqtm. It wns tbe wont rapid we
hail yet encountered. After trying It several tvaya without success we had to resort to the towlug Hue.
We dragged our little craft ap through
the boiling current yard by yard. It may
have been within a dosen feet of us when
ernck! the stont hide tlue suddenly snapped, nnd away went tbe canoe with all
onr stores and Jed's rifle, dashing madly
down the falls.
"What fools to worry," cried Jed;
"wben we' can get all the canoes we
"Where?1"   ,
"Down In the burial ground, of course.
It's only n mile or so. Oome along." .
Fortunately we were on the same side
of the river, and nn hour's hard struggling through the dense woods brought ui
to tho cemetery. We found that most of
the canoes were In very bad condition,
but finally came across one that seemed
seaworthy. Our good fortune mended oar
spirits, and as we sped onward we laughed and joked and broke Into rollicking
son(,'3. ' >
We had made a mile or so when, shooting round a sharp elbow of tbe river, we
were thunderstruck to find ourselves
ahrenst of a large Indian camp pitched
on tbe bank. The narrowing of the
stream at this point brought na within 30
yards of our foes.
Uttering a howl ot rage, they made n
wild rush for the water's edge* threw
themselves Into their canoes and came
after us In full pursuit. And foremost
among them we recognised the tall term
ot Wnh-kla-na.
Witb a awitt wave ot onr paddles we
turned the nose of our antique craft toward the bank, reaching which, we leaped ashore. I seised the gnn, and In two
seconds we were tearing through the
thick brushwood toward the forest beyond.
That afternoon and erening 1 tramped
mnny miles. At nightfall, being utterly
fagged out, I threw myself upon the
turf beside a small stream and wai soon
sound asleep.
I awoke a little after dawn, cold and
stiff and desperately hungry. I was about
to move along when I waa startled to
hear a crackling among the brushwood.
I sot my teeth and brought my rifle to
my shoulder, ready to fire aa soon as the
thing should break cover.
Presently who should stagger Into view
but Jed, the poor fellow ready to drop
with fatigue and hunger. We started off,
but soon Jed, who was carrying the gun,
while clambering orer the rocks made a
misstep nod fell. Tbe weapon flew from
his band, and, the trigger striking hard
agninxt a stump, a loud report followed
among tho surrounding hills.
But thnt was not the wont Jed!* ankle received a very bad twist In hii fall,
and for some minutes the poor fellow waa
agonised with pain.
Now we noticed a column of smoke riling nearly opposite our position from tbe
other bnnk of tho river.
"A stgnnlt" cried Jed. "They mnst
have heard tbe report What a clumsy
Idiot I wast"
"And see," said 1, "there's an answer*
ing ilgnnl to tbe right and another to the
left. But we've got a good itart of them,
and before thoy strike our trail we must
be miles away."
All that nfternoon we tolled onward
orer our rugged course. Meantime, however, Jed'i wounded ankle grew worse,
tiutil at sunset It wai swollen to twice Ita
natural sUe, and* he could proceed uo
Twilight slowly darkened Into night
The moon rose and cast her fading light
upon tbe scene. A more welcome Hgbt I
think, I shall never behold.
Presently signal Dree on tbe bills near
by told ua that the rest of our enemies
were close at bond. Again I looked to
tbe priming ot my gun and otherwise prepared for action.
For fully 20 minutes we heard nothing
of our foes, though we knew well tbe
cowardly fellows were debating how.best
to reach us, Then, from their ambush In
the wild oats, we beard voices, as though
they were encouraging each otber to
charge, and we realised tbat .the-crisis
waa at band.
Suddeuly I wai startled by an exclamation from Jed.
"It'i all np, Joel" he cried. "No nit
firing. The villains have got oa In tha
"Hist, boys, hist!" whispered a volet
from the bow of the canoe.
"Good heavens, It'i Wnttie!"
"Aye, boys, and Just In tbe nick of
time. Catch bold of this byar line and
haul us In right smart,"
Thia was done and all eo quietly and
quickly tbnt the Indiana knew nothing of
our ro-euforcoraenti. A minute later
they broke cover, rushed Into the open
and, with a blood curdling yell, charged
pellmell down nnon na,
"Klrel" shouted Wattle In a rolee thnt
rnng loud above the uproar, and Instantly
five spouts of flame flatbed In the fncea
of our foea.
Surprised, thunderstruck, utterly discomfited, the advancing body reeled back
from the volley they bnd ao little expected.
"After 'em, boys!" yelled Wattle, leaping np over the bank and giving chase,
We sent tbem flying In all directions,

World's Greatest Kidney Cure,
It's a simple matter to test the kidneys. You need not
consult a doctor. By asking yourself three questions you can
determine whether or not your kidneys are deranged.
First: " Have you backache or weak, lame back p"
Second: " Do you have difficulty in urinating or too fro.
quent desire to urinate ? "
Third; "Are there deposits like brickdust in "the urine
after it has stood for twenty-four hours ?"  .
Ih its early stages kidney disease is readily cured by a few
boxesf of Pr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, a preparation which
has made Dr. Chase famous throughout the world for his
wonderful cures of diseases of the kidneys. ���
If you have kidney disease you can take Dr. Chase's Kid-
ney- Liver Pills with perfect confidence that what has proved an
absolute cure in so many thousands of cases will not fail you.
So long as the cells of the kidneyi we not completely wetted
away, as in the last: stages of Bright's Disease, UR Ghate's
Kidney-Liver Pills will give them new vigor and strength
and absolutely cure kidney disease. One pill a dose; ** cents a

I-oog before the days of bloomers women on the higher level of the Alps wore
trousers, and oo one thought anything
about It. The Alpine women wear tho
bifurcated garment for utility and not
for beauty, as one may judge if he or
sho ha. ever seen one of these girls.
Comeliness snd the Alpine herdswomen
ore far apart, but tbe style of the garments they wear and the hard life that
Is theirs are at the root of the trouble.
Tbe women have little of the grace and
agility seen In the maidens of Norwsy.
They will leap across chasms with nonchalance, but thero Es nothing wild and
free about their movements. While sho
is talking to you the Alpine herdswoman
Is quite apt to thrust oot an ungainly leg,
plant a heavy boot ou the neck of a goat
and stand thus while sbe converses.
Witb the exception of the blacks, who
endure a life of hunger, in the interior of
Africa, there is hardly any one in the

These women breakfast at 2 In ths

the csttle lowing at tbe door of the chalet, begging to be attended to and driven
up to some fsvorite Alp. They eat again
somo 12 or 14 hours later, when the weary tramp back to the chalet is about to
begin. Between times, with sickles, tbey
reap tho long, coarse Alpine grasses,
which are to serve as food tor the cattle
during the long winter.

Tha Washington PoatsBoo Has a Cal
In Its Walla.
That the many mishaps which bcfcl
that architectural monstrosity ou
Pennsylvania avenue known as the
new city postoffice during tbo luauy
years It was lu process of construction
was due to a "hoodoo" is freely admitted by a large number of Washington
citizens, wbo watched the building rise,
with frequent Interruptions, from lis
foundations. No other public structure ever erected lu Washington bas
caused tbe government so much trouble, and even now, although partially
occupied, alterations and changes remain, to bo made.
Columns have been written In the
newspapers by Indlgunnt citizens calling attention to defects lo tbe big stone
building and condemning tbe structure
generally. A congressional committee
was appointed at tbe lust session to
Investigate the many alleged shortcomings of tho building, and altogether tbo
new city postolttce has beeu a cause
for complaint ever since lt rose above
the first story several years ago.
Believers in buc-Ii thlugs have all
along asserted with solemn conviction
that tbe building was "hoodooed."
Their position has at last been sustained, for tbo "hoodoo" bas been
found, and It will renin In as long as
the building stands. It is not one of
those mysterious "koodoos" invisible
to the human eye, but on the contrary.
It may ke seen at any hour of tbe day
or night by nny ono who cares to walk
to the south end of the west corridor
on the first floor. There, distinctly outlined In tbo nimble of the wall, Is the
perfect figure of a huge black cat, with
tall curled around Its haunches, oars
stiff ond erect Faint Hues traco the
whiskers from ,each side of tbe jaws.
It Is not necessary to search tbe surface of the marble for the cat because

era) yarBs away from tho wall. A
painter could scarcely have made It
"plainer or more lifelike with his
brushes and colors.
Tbe figure is due to tbe peculiar vein-
lug In tbo marble, and Is tbe only one
which haa so far been found In tho
building. Figures, faces and objects
In marble are not uncommon, aud
tbere are a number of fine specimens
In tbo geological section of the National museum. None of them, however,
compares with the slab In tho post-
offico In realism and close approach to
nature. Ono of the postoffice watchmen expressed tbe opinion the other
day that uutll the slab containing tho
cat Is removed tbe "hoodoo" will continue to bang over tbo building.���

Tho effort Is being made, in substituting new deslgus for the present
gracefully drawn models, to secure

Iho counting of notes by cashiers, and

"One of the finest and lightest materials that aro now largely used for

said a leading clock manufacturer recently. "Until recently tbe pointer*
of big clocks, when not made of wood,

which, without a counterweigh t, would

unevenly upon the arbor or shaft which
carries it On great clocks and often
on big timepieces Indoors this counterpoise is placed Inside the dial out of
sight on the arbor.
"The heavier tbe pointer tbe greater
