Work On Construction Will lie  Pushed
Rapidly Forward.
From the Herald—
Messrs. Hull, Austin and McKenzie,
9 'of the Marysville Smelter management,
returned last week from Spokane where
they were attending a meeting of the
board of control of th.--Sullivan Mining
and Smelting company. All difficulties
were adjusted and ths policy of construe
tion definitely determined upon, so tbat
henceforth there will be np delays.
Every arrangement is made to push
along the work as rapidly as possible,
aod soon a very large force of men will
be put to work, which will mean prosperity for Marysville, and as soon as the
smelter is blown in, better times for the
whole district.
As an indication of what is being done,
J. D. Mcllride, the hardware dealer,
stated tbat he had four car loads of material for the smelter that would soon arrive. Then tbere are numerous carloads
of other machinery arriving, so thnt
within a very short time there will be a
great crowd of people employed on construction. Tbis will be pad new* to the
knockers, but if they iion't wont to ->ee
prosperity they must get out o( tbe district this year.

Snow Mide on Kokanee Kaiige,
Nelson Miner: Fred Lowden and
Chris. Sherbeit were sleeping in a cabin
at the foot of the main Kok-unee range
about 1,000 feel below the summit, on
March 12th, at 9 o'clock when a snow
slide occurred. Il swept kown upon
iho cabin, cut off the roof,and piled the
interior, and for 10 feet above the
structure. Sherbert was awakened by
finding hfmaelf packed in snow lhat lay-
heavy upon him. With alipost super?
human effort, he managed to make his
way to liberty and daylight after 3d
hours of a struggle He was compelled
to scoop the heavy snow out ln front of
him and roll it into balls and put it
under his body, as he tolled toward the
surface. He made his way laboriously
to the Millie Gibson mine, where be induced the Italian employees there,
under a promise of $}0, to go to his
companion's relief,
They went and reported tbat they
nad shoveled the snow off Lowden till
tbey came to his bead, and then they
saw tbat he was dead. Tbe next day
on a promise made by Sherbert to pay
$10 to the Italian?, the body of Lowden
was taken out to-day. Lowden's
finger nails were torn off, »hiwiug that
be, too made a desperate effort to save
his life. S terbjri'a feet and hands are
badly frozen, and bis feet may have to
be amputated. IK* was clad ln a thin
shirt ouly during the lime be was fighting for h's life.
Work bas been resumed on the smelter. AU the brick layers that cuuld be
obtained in the nc ighborhood have
been set to work on the roaster buildings and the company have telegraphed
for ten more, who will arrive as soon
as trains can bring them here.
Spring bas arrived In Marysville
with every prospect, indeed with an
assurance, lhat a busy summer Is ln
store for the Smelter 0 ty of South
E-ist Kootenay. Never, ln tbe history
of British Columbia, did a town start In
on tbe beginlng of a year wiih such a
magnificent prospect. Never did a
town bave so much to look forward to.
Within a very few weeks Marvelous
Marysville will be the home of a large
and fljuu-vhtng nopmaton, the home of
a great number of workmen and their
families which constitute the brawn
and backbone of all prosperous communities. Whenever Industries spring
up in this province, or for that matter,
anywhere else, a large and prosperous
population springs up also, and the fac|J
that Mirysvllle will be distinctly an industrial town proves conclusively that
she will have a prosperous and large
The population of Marysville will not
consist of wbat the New York American
calls the "Silk Stocking Set,'- but
tbat matters not. it will consist of what
che people of this country call the
working man and a population of working men is by far the best population
10 have in any town. Tbe reason of
this la not hard to find. The working
man drawing regular wsges month by
month spends bis money ln tbe town
in whicb he draws his wages. Again
he, in nine cases out of ten,has a family
which have to be supported aod as a
general rule the working man of this
country keepB bla family well and this
all teuds largely to the geneial prosperity of the community.
There hav? been many doubts
ln the minds of some people as
to the future of Marysville,
These doubts, as those who have really
studied tne question kaew, were unfounded, and 10-day the people of British C^.uaioia known that Marysville Is
all ilgtit. The people of Canada know
that Marysville la all right and the
people of the Uolted Sites know that
Marysville is all right. How can it be
otherwise. A town wltb a smelter, a
leflnery and the prospect of lead manufactures and a town that has the mines
to supply lhe raw material In its immediate vicinity and a town that has
the uabounded prospects that the St.
Mary's Valley shows, can be nothing
hut all right.
The prosperity of any town or any
community depends a great deal on tee
people who go to make up the population of tbe town, therefore we woftld
urge npon the business men. the merchants and In fact upon all who havethe
interests of our town at heart, to do all
In their power to make the prospects of
Marysville known to the outside world.
This can be accomplished by talking
about Marysville on the outside, by telling their friends la the east and els.-
where, wben writing, of Marvelous
Marysville and lis resources, and don't
forget when talking about the loffn to
speak also about the district.
The great thing Is for all hands to
pull to-getber for the general wthfarc
of the town ; If this Is done there Is no
doubt but lhat Marysville will long retain the name sue has won for herself.
The Company Directs That the Construct
ion Work be Pushed.
Nelson Miner: L. S. Austin, superintendent of the Sullivan smelter now
under construction at Marysville, East
Kootenay; Fred Uurbridge, formerly
manager of tbe Hunker Hill and Sullivan mine in the Coeur d'Alenes : H. McKenzie in charge of tbe construction
work on tbe smelter, and George W.
Hull, general manager of the Sullivan
mine, formed a party which came iu
from Spokane yesterday nnd after a
short stay at the Phair took the boat for
East Kootenay. Tbey have beep in
Spokaue in attendance on the meeting
of the company and have received
orders from the directorate to push the
construction work on tbe smelter as
rapidly as possible to the end that, it
ujay soon be completed. Mr. Kurbridge
is with tbe party and will look over
smelter in an advisory capacity. The
talk about closing down the construction of the plant they declare to huve no
foundation whatever.

Corroding of Lead.
While most white lead is still made
by the old Dutch process of slow corrosion, there are several new ways.says lhe
Rosslan-i Miner, one of tbe best being
tbe Bailey method: as in operation at
Jersey City, N. J , where tbe lead is
smelted in a big caaldron 10 feet above
the factory floor, and run into a second
smaller pot over a slow fire, which keeps
it at nn even temperature. At the bottom, of t^iis second pot is a short horizontal 2 t-2 inches nozzle, which ends in
a thin sleel plate, perforated with about
200, tiny holes,through which the melted
lead is forced by tbe hydrostatic pressure of Its own mass, becoming immediately solldfied as it falls through
the air in fine fibers of nbout .01 in
diameter. It cools so rapidiy that one
can hold his hand in the stream of fine
lead ^laments which cluster in festoons
around it. Bunches of this fiber are
forked into trays 5 feet by 3 feet, 5
Inches deep, each tray holding about 75
pounds, piled in stacks or tiers, through
which carbon dioxide makes its w.ty
from the bottom As tbe trays are filled with tbe lead fiber they are momentarily immersed, singly, in a tank
containing an 8 percent, solution of No,
25 acetic acid; then, after draining on
nu inclined platform, th-^v are piled In
in stacks of io over openings in the floor
through which the carbon dioxide
ascend, while the temperature is kept at
100 degrees F. At tbe end of three
days of this process of corrosion the com
tents of the trays are flung into water,
resulting in white lead so fine tbat little
subsequent grinding is necessary, the
creamy mass passing into a cylindrical
screening, partially, submerged in waier,
After through washing the white lead is
dried for tbe market. There is a residue
of about 8 per cent, unchanged lead,
finely ground, and thus suitable for the
manufacture of lead acetate.

His name was Phlneas Ellsworth,

To say that lie was u,*>inlounted Is

Ami so it wont fur nearly n year,
nml, though we Invented many u plan
to give Billy an opportunity lo show
Ids worth, lit.- managed on one pretext
oi another to keep out nf our snares.
One day Gala Snelllng, who was out
looking up some stays, fell lu with a
maverick steer feeding In a coulee nnd.
thinking nt lirst that it was nn "IIX"
critter, rode toward it. But tlie beast
was what Is known as a "bad un,"
nnd, horns down and bellowing with
rago, he turned and charged on the
startled cowboy. Cale tried to turn his
pony nnd run, but the animal was
green nnd ouly reared nnd snorted,
t'ale thought he was about to take a
place herding clouds, but ho yanked
his gun nnd let go, catching the steer
right between the eyes nnd dropping
It not more than ten feet uway.
Cnle was a bit new In the business,
and he wns rather pale when he rode
up to the ranch nnd related his experience, but there was a triumphant tone
in his voice as lie told of his successful
Elliot from the back of n bucking pony.
Billy listened with n superior nlr.
"Huh!" he remarked disdainfully.
"Wliat yo wnnter kill Mm for? Yo c'd
'os 'z wcdl 'creased' an' roped 'im. Some
folks never hev no r'gard fer prop'ty.
Waste not, want nolhln'."
We all groaned and proceeded to eon-
grntnlato Cale on his luck, but Bill did
not seem to care. He was getting used
to our Irreverence. It may be noted,
however, thnt wheu wo tried next
morning to get Billy to taken galloping
tdiot nt the stripe In n blanket nailed
on to a shed door, to see how near he
could have come to "creasing" a mad
steer from the back of a fool pony, our
proposition met witli scorn. "There ye
go ag'ln." said Billy. "What's th' blnmo

eglots that er thing kin be did? Aw, go
oil* an' try potitidlu' san' In er nttholo

When doe Fleming, brother of the
boss, nnd Hank liarr had a brush with
half n dozen Indians and just escaped '
witli their lives, leaving n bunch of fat i
cattle to be run off by Uncle Sam's j
dear, sweet proteges, Billy's opinion '
was nt once forthcoming, "Huh! Yo ,

When Bob Hall, a cowboy from tho
"3 Bar," the next ranch—one of tho
meanest, ugliest, most quarrelsome bullies who ever flourished a gun—got killed nt the hotel In town by nn unoffending tenderfoot whom he had tried to
compel to take n drink, Billy, as usual,
had something to sny. "Huh! That's

All the same, there wns nn old story
to the effect that once when Billy had
been unaccountably absent from the
ranch for three or four days, he bad
been In town, devoting considerable attention to keeping out of tbe belligerent
Mr. Hall's way.
But Billy's opportunity came one day.
He had been laid up a week and wns
still lame ns the result of being on the
sldo next the ground when his pony
Stumbled and fell one day and was sitting nt the door one morning about
11 :.'!(> when the stage came along. Several of us were In the ratichhouso and
were somewhat surprised lo hear the
wheels outside, for the stage road was
two miles from the ranch. As we
eruwded to the duor we saw "something was up," for Dyer, the driver,
looked exeiled.
"Mornln1, gentlemen," he said. And
then io Boss Fleming: "Fleming, I ex-
pool to ho hoi' up over by 1'lve Mile

I'll gel another man at Barker's, an' 1

"Why. yes, of course," was the reply,
"You eau have more If you want 'em.
I'll  g yself.   Bet  why  didn't you

Dyer explained. The night before be
had noticed three suspicious looking
characters in town ami observed that
they eyed him considerably. This morning he had slat-tod early, Imping to pass
all lhe places favorable to a "hold up"
before the three lough looking gentlemen had time to get located. He had
felt a bit backward about bringing
guards, as he did not like lo appear
cowardly, ami besides his suspicions
might be groundless, nml the laugh
would bo on him. Thero were no valuables except the mall bags.
But the three strangers had passed
him a mllo back, evidently in n hurry
tu get somewhere; hence his visit to the
Fleming turned to get ready to go-
he was not the man to send somebody
else Into danger—but be was met nt the
door by Billy, "heeled" with two re
volvers and a Winchester.
"Hello, man!" ejaculated Fleming.
"Didn't you hear me say I was going?"
"Don't care ef ye did," answered Billy curtly. "Thar's plenty work ter do,
an' my lalgs is too stiff ter straddle any
blame broncho." And he climbed painfully up on the driver's seat, nnd the
stage rolled nway. leaving us staring
at each otber, unable to believe our
Tbe stage did not reach tbe Five
Mile nor did It reach Parker's. At a
place two miles west of the "IIX,"
where the road traversed tlie edge of
n bluff overhanging n deep ravine,
there were three shots tired, and brave
Walt Dyer and bis two team leaders
fell into the road. Then there were
more shots—n rattling fusillade for two
or threo minutes—then silence.
When wo got to the scene we saw
Billy Brng lying across the body of

The Superior American Women.
After many happy weeks spent ln
Iho States I am not In the least surprised that Englishmen should marry
American women. They show tbelr
good tnste—I should do the some were
I a man. Nor am I surprised tlmt
American women should prefer Englishmen, foi' tho same remark applies.
There Is a delightful freedom, an air
of comradeship coupled with pleasant
manners nnd pretty looks In the American woman, which Is most attractive.
Her hospitality Is unbounded, bet* generosity thoughtful, nnd she Is ln every
way an all round good sort.
Tlie American wotnap Is nn excellent
speaker. It Is surprising to bear ber
oratory at ono of her large club luncheons, such ns the Sorosls In New York.
Tho clnbwomnu Is young nnd handsome, well dressed nnd pleasing, nnd
she stnnds up and addresses n couple
of hundred women Just ns easily as sho
would begin a tete-a-tete across a
luncheon tabic. Sho is uot shy, or if
she Is she hides It cleverly.
There Is uo doubt nbout It—the American dame is a great personality, but
either sho will have to educate her sons
to her own level or descend from tbe
pedestal on which sho now reigns.
Which will It be?-Mrs. Alec-Twecdle

A Dnrlnar Argument.
A quick wltted and daring western
lawyer once saved a guilty client from
sure conviction ou a charge of poisoning. It was proved that the poisoning
had been done by means of certain
cakes, a portion of which was produced In court When the counsel for
the prisoner had finished his speech,
he said: "And these, gentlemen of the
jury, nro some of the alleged poisoned
i cakes. Wo declare to you, gentlemen
of the jury, that they are not poisoned
cakes. They nro as harmless cakes ns
ever were made, and In order, gentlemen of the jury, to show you that these
cakes are not poisoned, I will cat ono
of them right hero in your presence."
And he did eat one. Ho took good
care, however, to leave tho room nt the
earliest opportunity and to make a bee
line for nn adjoining room, where he
had an emetic In readiness nnd au anti-
dole. But the Jury never heard nbout
the emetic or the autldote until the
lawyer's client hud been acquitted.
The Object of Life.
Lewis Carroll, lhe mathematician
and author of "Alice In Wonderland,"
once said: "Once realize what the Into
object Is In life—that it is not pleasure,
not knowledge, uot oven fame itself,
Hint last Infirmity of noble minds, but
that It Is tlie development of character,
the rising to n higher, nobler, purer
standard, lhe building up of the perfect man—and then so long us this Is
going on and It will, we trust, go on
forevenuore, dentil has for us no terror; It Is not u shadow, but a light; not
en end. but a beginning."

Ralph Holmes, express messenger on
a fast night train running from Chicago to Peoria, had discharged his duties
lu the methodical way that conies with
experience and familiarity with one's
daily routine of work and sank Into an
easy chair Willi n ride of fifty miles yet
before him and nothing to.occupy his
attention but his own thoughts, the
rumbling of the wheels and an occasional note of warning from the engine. Thoughts come quick nnd fnst
nt such times, and so it was witb Ralph
Holmes. The events of the four years
since ho was thrown upon his own resources passed him iu review ns a panorama.
On the long, tedious "runs" be bad
often been absorbed in n reverie of this
sort, but ln this InsMilce there were
new and perplexing problems confronting him. He had always found much
that was gratifying In one of these
quiet Invoices of his few successes In
life, and, while he felt none the less
pleasure ou others, ho found llttlo ln
reminiscence to encourage him in certain of Ills desires.
In all of these communions with bis
own thoughts there was one central
figure, and that a dear, little woman,
patient and loving, her hair made silvery and her form bent by the seventy
years of worldly struggle. It was
Ralph Holmes' mother, and well he re-
nic.ihercd the night of his graduation
from high school when she came tottering to the stage when the exercises
were over, threw her arms nbout his
neck and wept teal's of joy. It was a
glad event fur Ralph, for he had closed
his school career with honors, but It
was of vastly more moment to the little
old woman who proudly embraced him,
for the Joy which the diploma brought
both of them represented years of toil
and sacrifice on her part. Ralph wns
a sensible youth and not unmindful of
lhe aid his mother had given him, often
nt the expense of her own health and
comfort. He, too, recalled on this
night, ns often before, the assuring
words ho gave his mother before leaving home some months after his graduation,
"Yon have given me n stmt, mom-
mei," be bad said, "that many a boy
In better circumstances might bo glad
to have, nud i i'ope you'll live to see
tne prove Hint I dosrivd a fair start."
Then, ns the triiin sped on, Ralph recalled his entrance to one of the great
medical schools of the city nud the
difficulties lie encountered during tlio
first year because of his limited means.
Though lie had been forced to study
from the books of classmates and wait
on ihc table at a restaurant for his own
board, his letters to the little mother
nt homo wqi\> always cheerful nud full
of hope, containing as little as possible
of tlio darker side of his college life.
Then, during the summer vacation, lie
had by n rare stroke of good fortune
secured the position of express messenger. Ralph confidently expected
never to experience a happier day than
when lie made Ills first "run." for If
he could but hold the place It would relieve blm of the anxiety thnt the expense of his medical education caused
To be sure, lie hnd held the position
and It had more thnn paid his own expense. It pleased blm to note In addition that he had been able to send a
little money home to his mother, The
two trips n week lhe year round had
Interfered to no small extent with his
attendance nt school, but he had been
ns faithful ns his circumstances would
permit, nnd it seemed lo Ralph, ns he
sat there musing, that the faculty must
have known something of his struggle
end bellied blm nlnng. Tben, too, lie
hnd been deprived of the regular hours
for study which the other Btudents
bad, hut he had Improved nil ills spare
time. Night after night he had sat In
thai same old chair In the express ear
when bis work was over nud "crammed" until tho whistle blew for Peoria. More than this, bis dingy room in
Ihc Railroad hold there bad been a
favorite place for study when he turned In nfter the long "run" for n few
hours' sleep. Tho precious Bleep had
oftentimes been sacrificed that ho
might make good recitations nt college
the following day.
But all this was In the past. This
particular night found him a senior
and within a few weeks of Ills graduation—the culmination of his own great
effort. In these closing days of his college career, however, a new desire hnd
taken possession of him.   He had felt
a call to arms In tlie fierce warfare
which Involves all the medical schools
nt tlie close of the year—the relentless,
uncompromising struggle for hospital
True, he wns not counted among tlio
seniors of his own school as tl candidate for hospital honors. Tills, bo
knew, wns not because of a poor class
record, fur In this respect he stood well
in the front ranks, but his duties outside of school had made It Impossible
for him lo take llio "quiz class"-the
review of the work of the whole school
course, which occupies during the last
year the ma lor portion of the attention
of those who expect to take the eom-
pelllive examlnallnns for the Interne-
ships. This formality, Ralph argued
Willi himself, need not prevent him
from entering the competition when
the time came. He, too, had done a
great deal of reviewing in a quiet way
and felt fairly well prepared for any
ordinal')' questions which might arise
In the course of the examinations. But
of "catch" questions be stood In awe.
But who could tell? Some would get
the places and others would fall. He
had made all the preparation possible,
considering his condition, nnd why not
take chances with the rest? It might
happen that ho would be among tlio
lucky ones.
So, when Ralph Holmes locked the
express car door early tho next morning nnd went to his gloomy quarters
lu the Railroad hotel, It was with tbo
determination to lake tho first hospital examination that came along,
whlcli would be on the following Saturday, nnd ono of tho" days that he
would be lu the city.
Tired though he was, Ralph did not
go to bed at once.  The new excite
ment kept him awake. Sitting down at
the table he picked up the first book
that met his gaze. Why he did It he
did not know, but in doing so he followed a definite Impulse—a "hunch."
as he was accustomed to say. Running over Its pages In an aimless sort
of way and having no thought of
studying any particular subject he
stumbled, as it were, upon a chapter
hitherto unknown to him. "Tumors of
the Adrenal Capsule," it read.
"Well, that's a uew one on me," he
murmured ns ho glanced casually over
the pnges. Inasmuch as tbe subject
hnd never been nsslgued for study, nor,
to bis knowledge, had nny reference
beeu ninde to It In class, be thought lt
might prove Interesting rending.
"It must be a useless lot of stuff,"
he murmured again as he started to
read, "or we would have beard something nbout It. Nothing else In particular to do, though, so guess I'll Just
glance over it. Might come handy
some time."
An hour later Ralph laid the book
aside and went to bed.
When Saturday came nnd students
from various schools gathered for the
hospital examination, Ralph Holmes
was among the number. He dropped
Into one of the rear sents In a careless
sort of Way, but his presence caused
no Utile comment among the members
of his own class, who expected to see
him lu the competition least of all others.
"What are you doing bere?" Inquired
"Oh, Just happened in to see what's
going on," was Ralph's Indifferent reply. But when he provided himself
with paper and made ready to write
the others were convinced that he was
more than u mere looker on.
Then came n breathless silence ns the
qtiostlot': were being written upon the
board. There was one on anatomy,
then a query on chemistry, another ou
physiology, then histology, materia
mediea and half a dozen other brunches of medical science. Fourteen questions had been given nud bad been
met wllh suppressed groans, smiles or
whispers of "Easy!" or "Puddin'!" ns
they found the various contestants prepared or wanting In knowledge.
Through it all Ralph had maintained a
countenance ns cold and expressionless
as sltel. He felt satisfied that so far
he was equal to the lest, but resolved
not to betray his feelings to the others
around him. It was the fifteenth nnd
last question thnt he wanted to see,
and his impatience got the bettor of
him. lie felt something tugging. A
peculiar, iinexpluluable something took
possession of him, nnd ns the professor's hand was raised to write the question lie followed It not nlono with his
eyes, but with his body. He stood up,
but when he resumed bis sent it wns
with n sigh nf relief that was heard
distinctly lu every part of the crowded
room.   The professor hnd written:
15. Ktlology, pathology, wmptoms, dlaenosla
ami trutttrrir-rit ct tumors ot the adrenal capsule.
The explosion of a bombshell would
not have caused more consternation
among the students than did that one
question, for in none of the scbools had
I lie subject been Introduced, nnd It had

Metal Posts Replace tbe Stone* That
Murked the Boundary Between
Maryland, Delaware and Pennsyl-
vania—Romance of Famooi Line.
The rapid progress tbat has been made
in the resurvey of the famous Mason und
Dixon's line brings into prominence once
more that historic boundary which at the
lime of the civil war wus supposed to separate slavery nnd freedom. The average
American knows this line in a vague nnd
general way as a result of its historical
significance, but there ure few who can
tell how, when or why it came into being.
The answers to these questions havo
nothing whatever to do with tho romance
of civil war days. In fact Mason nnd
Dixon's line dates frota the eighteenth
century anil even, though indirectly, from
Ihe seventeenth.
In 1081 William IVnn obtained from
Charles II. a charter giving him a tract
of land In America. When he and his
fellow colonists came over to take posses-
eion, they found that the grant established them among impenetrable forests
nud gave them no coast line whatever.
Pent! at once besieged royalty for a
fresh grant, aud nut without success, for
he was given more land at the expense
uf Cecil Culvert, Lord Baltimore. Naturally Culvert was highly incensed at
this nnd immediately started to dispute
i'enn's rights. Negotiations for the de-
tenniaation of the boundary between tho
lands <>r IVnn u-ul Lord Baltimore were
protracted and hitter, the partisans of
each at times coming almost to open war.
The struggle lasted until 1782, wben
the heirs of the original disputants entered into an agreement for the iinnl adjudication of the boundary. Work was
commenced at once, but complications
arose, and it was not until 1700 that
things were giveu definite shape by the
appointment of a commission to survey
the boundary* This commission did iu
work in a v4 y dilatory way, and the
heads of the two colonies became impatient ut the slow progress made. Both
IVnn and Calvert were in London nt the
Unie, and they engaged Charles Mason
and James Dixon, tlie two men whoso
eatnes havo become so famous in connection with this line, to complete tbe work
of the com mission.
While Mason aud Dixon are described
as mathematicians and surveyors, ot
merely as surveyors, they were men of
learning and much scientific attainment.
Both were elected members of the American Philosophical society.
Tho two surveyors did their work on
tho line wirij the utmost care. They cut a
"vista" eight feet wide through the forests and set up a stone at the end of each
mile. Every fifth stone was larger than
the others aud had on the south side the
arms of Frederick, Lord Baltimore, aud

of the original proprietors are still trace^
able, though they have been exposed to
the elements for over a century. Stones
were set up by the two surveyors us fat
west as Sideling hill, about 132 miles
from the northeast corner of Maryland.
It was virtually impossible to transport
them farther, and the continuation of the
line was marked by piles of stone extending as far as the summit of the Alle-
ghnnies, beyond which the line was marked by posts surrounded by stones.
As time went on, thanks to cureless-
ness and vandalism, many of the stones
wero removed from their original position, until at length doubt prevailed as
to the exact location of the line in many
places. In 1849 a desire was expressed
for a resurvey, and commissioners were
appointed by each of the states interested. The surveyors found tho work of
Mason and Dixon very reliable in the
main, although the resurvey resulted in
Maryland making a slight gain in territory.
The line was remarked by stones, but
relic hunters made short work of these
after the civil war had made Mason
and Dixon's lino famous. New stones
were set io place surrounded by heavy
wire nettings, but even these did not
prove invulnerable to curio hunters. It
was to give the line permanent markings
and to settle nn Interstate controversy
that the present survey was undertaken.
Lovers of relics will now have to wield
their chisels on metal posts instead of
stone ones, for the old order of things
has passed away.
The point in controversy between
Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania
concerns the true beginning of the east
end of the famous boundary—I. e., the
length of the "tangent line" which furnished the point of departure for Mason
and Dixon. So much interest was awakened in the matter that in 1899 the Pennsylvania legislature appropriated $7,000
to re-establish the boundary, und a year
later the Maryland legislature followed
suit with -$5,000. Tho work of remark'
ing the Hue is now almost completed

event wns spoken of nt the time as an
Illustration of the development of the
Tbe night Arm and Left Foot.
Tbe right arm Is always a little larger than the left, but the left foot Is
almost always larger than tbe right,
presumably because while nearly every
man uses bis right arm to lift a weight
or strike n blow he nluiost Invariably
kicks with his left foot, while tbo
lounger stands on his left leg aud lets
his right fall easily, because he has
learned by experience that this Is tbe
best attitude be can assume to prevent
lassitude and fatigue.
This constant bearing of the weight
on the left foot makes It wider thau
tho right, and It often happens that a
man who tries on a shoe on tbe right
foot and gets a close fit has to discard
the shoes altogether because he cannot
endure the pain caused by the tightness of the left. If when riding on
the street car you will take the trouble
to notice, you will see that In laced
shoes the gap Is much smaller on tho
right foot than on the frfi, while with
button shoes tho buttons have to be
set back ten times on tbe left shoe to
•nee on the right.

na   Is   Nutriment.
Chemists tell us that cheese Is one of
the most nutritious nnd at the same
time one of tbe cheapest of foods. Its
nutritive value Is greater thnn meat,
while Its cost is mueh Jess. But this
chemical aspect of the matter does not
express the real value of the cheese ns
a food. Cheese Is eaten not because of
Its nutritive value ns expressed by the
amount of protelds, fats and carbohydrates that It contains, but always because of its flavor.
Now, physiologists do not And thnt
flavor lias any food value. They teach
over and over again that our foodstuffs
nre protelds,fats und carbohydrates and
tbat as food flavor plays absolutely no
part. But nt the same time tbey tell us
that the body would be unable to live
upon these foodstuffs were It not for
tbe flavors. If one were compelled to
cat pure food without flavors, like the
white of an egg, It Is doubtful whether
one could for it week nt a time consume
a sufficiency of food to supply bis bodily needs. Flavor Is as necessary as nutriment. It gives a zest to the food nnd
thus enables us to consume It properly,
and, secondly. It stimulates the glands
to secrete, so that the foods may be
satisfactorily digested and assimilated.
The whole nit of cooking, the great
development of flavoring products, the
high prices paid for special foods like
lobsters and oysters—these nnd numerous other factors connected with food
supply nnd production are based solely
upon tbis demand for flavor. Flavor is
a necessity, but It Is not particularly
Important wbat the flavor may be. This
Is shown by tbo fact thnt different peoples have such different tastes In tbis
respect. The garlic of the Italian and
the red pepper of tbe Mexican serve
the same purpose as the vanilla which
we put In our lee cream, and all play
the part of giving a relish te tbe food
aud stimulating the digestive organs to
proper activity.—Professor II. \V. Corn

How \o Detect a Cheap Shoe.
"It takes a rainy spell to show up ■
cheap shoe," says a shoo denier. "It
can be spotted by an observer on a
rainy day, though It may have come
within nn hour from the store. Watch
tbe feet of people tbe next time It rains,
and you can pick out tbe Inexpensive
shoes. A cheap shoe always slips when
the pavements aro wet. Artificial stono
pavements especially show them up.
The sole of a cheap, com mon shoe Is
made of Imitation leather, composed of
pressed paper, and water softens lt and
makes the wearer slide along while
walking. Vou can always tell a cheap
shoe In this way."

he was, as he stood there, Uf*uii6vt-u
amid tne enemies that suiTOunued him,
and a haughty, halt defiant, expression
rested upon bis handsome, during face.
He was a Union spy, captured in tba
Confederate lines and bearing upou his
person treasonable papers sufficient lu
have condemned a regiment. He ha i
made a good light, but ho wus ut lust
overpowered, the papers found up.lL
him, and, after a speedy trial, was cou
deuiued to die.
I had formed ono of the court, martial,
and though i knew that tlio crime ot
being n spy was punishable with death,
yet had 1 sought to have him spared. 1
was young then, for it was the lirst few
months of our Civil War. and I was not
as used to deeds of blood as 1 became in
after years ; and. besides, the spy was
young and handsome, by his deportment
evidently a gentleman, and his rtjoklesa
bravery had won my admiration.
^ Nightfall came upon our camp, ana
the foi.owing morning the spy was to
be called out and shot. 1 had baen ap
pointed to take charge of the execution,
nnd, seated in my tent, t was thinking,
thinking of the unpleasant duty I was to
perform on the morrow.
"Lieutenant, a note for you, sir."
I started us the orderly's voice broke
the stillness of the night, aud, taking the
outstretched rote, read :
"I'uruim me for disturbing your slumbers,
but ns you command ibeiletuehineui that will
to-morrow usrier my smil Into eternity, 1
would see you. if your dalles as au olflour do
noturgo to the contrary, iluiiliu- you will
grunt the favor, 1 remain, with respect,
Wii.uuu Hayes."
I carefully road the note over twice,
and then said to the orderly:
"Say that I will come."
A few moments later, and I stood in
the presence of the condemned man.
"Mr, Hayes, you sent for me."
"I did, lientsnaut;  and it was be-
cause of your kindness to me during the
trial, and also that I saw in your eyes
pity for my fate."
' I do feel for vou, from my heart I do;
and sincerely wish I had not the nn
pleasant duty devolving upon me of
ordering your execution tomorrow."
"I havo a favor to ask of you, sir; to
please order the guard to remove some
nistanrp Pro'n the rent, as it is a confession I wish to make."
1 gave a uuuiii'u.iu' to the guard to retire a few paces, and returning to the
tent, Hayes at once began:
"I am no spy, sir, but am condemned
under circniitstunlial evidence. I came
into the Confederate lines to visit my
mother, who lives in the south, although sho is Union in her feelings.
After a visit to her of a few days I started to return, and by the roadside came
upon a dying man clad as a Confederate
soldier. Imagine my surprise to recognize in him a noted spy of our own army,
and also recognizing me, he informed
me that he hail been wounded the nignt
before, by being fired upon by a party
of Confederate cavalry, and had ridden
on until he could go no further. He
knew lie was to die, und intrusted to my
cure tho papers ho had about him. 1
watched over the poor fellow until he
died, and then hollowing out a shallow
" 'Left him aloue in ids glory,'
and proceeded on my way.
' I havo little more to add, except that
I mil n major of cavalry in the United
States Army, and wish that you will
take my private papers from me after I
am dead and send them to an address 1
will give yon. Now this is all I ask, except that you will send me pen aud ink
by the orderly when you return."
Thus we parted; and finding a scout
awaiting me at my tent upon my return,
I gave him pen, ink and paper, and
ordered him to ride over to the tent
where the doomed man wns with them,
and to tell the guard to release his bands
of tho shackles while he wrote, but to
keep a close watch upon him.
A few minutes nfter, I was startled
by a loud shout, one, two, three shots in
rapid succession, and then the rapid
rush of hoofs by my quarters. I was
just in time to see the scout's horse dash
swiftly by and recognize, by the moonlight, the commanding form of Wilbur
Hayes, the Union spy, in the saddle.
Men mounted in hot haste, and a chaw
commenced, but the daring soldier escaped, aud thus saved him from the
death of a spy.
Upon inquiry, I learned that when the
manacles had been removed from his
wrist, Hayes, watching his opportunity,
with two rapid blows struck the guard
and the scout to the ground, and springing lightly on the back of the scout's
horse, rode rapidly away, followed by
the shots from the sentinels iu the immediate vicinity.

Why    the    Drowning    Man    Always
Thro.v. I |i UU Handa.
Tbe usual Idea that a droA-nlng man
Is stretching cut his bauds for aid or
"catcliiug nt straws" is not altogether
satisfactory. A possible explanation
has lately been suggested, nnd this
supposes that the drowning man, losing
all bis acquired habits and even some
of those Inherited from more recent
parents. In his terror goes back to the
Instinctive movements of his arboreal
ancestors, and the movements of tbe
drowning man nre tbose of a frightened ape seeking safety by clinging to
the nearest tree.
The movement Is certainly Instinctive, for It can only be eliminated by
considerable training nnd voluntary
efforts, and yet It Is fatal to the Individual, for the specific gravity of no
human body Is so nearly tbat of water
that tbe removal of tbe arms from the
supporting fluid nt once sinks tbe face
beneath the surface. In cases of so
called "cramps" the victim, often a
highly trained swimmer, generally
throws up the bands, but these cases
are probably due to heart failure, and a
similar movement tnkes place on land
when the subject receives a fatal heart
wound, and It is even a common expression of shock or astonishment. The
ordinary movements of walking or run
nlng would keep a man's face nbove
water, but these curious climbing
movements of both bauds and feet
make floating impossible and ore responsible for many deaths by drowning.

Haw  the  Pavlnjr  Value  of Asphalt
Was  Drought  to Notice.
All forms of bituminous pavements,
whether manufactured from natural or
artificial asphalt, are In fact artificial
stone pavements. The Industry started
with the use of the natural rock asphalt from the mines ln the Val de
Travers, Canton Neufchatel, Switzerland. The mines were discovered In
1721, but it was 1849 tbat Its utility as
a road covering was first noticed. The
rock wns then being mined for the
purpose of extracting tbe bitumen contained lu It for use lu medicine and
arts. It Is a limestone found impregnated with bitumen, of which It yields
on analysis from 8 to 14 per cent.
It wns observed that pieces of rock
whicll fell from the wagon were crushed by the weight of wbeels, nnd under
the combined Influence of tbe traffic
lind heat of the sun a good road surface
was produced. A macadam road of asphalt rock wns tben made whlcb gave
very good results, and finally In 1854
a portion of the Hue Bergere was laid
tn I'ai-ls of compressed asphalt on a
concrete foundation. In 18SS a still
larger sample was laid, and from tbnt
time it has been laid year by year In

"Henry," liis wife answered, "please
dou't be foolish,   Lie down nnd be quiet."
"No," he snarled, "I'm going down

"Henry,*1 Mrs. Grlmthorp pleaded,
"stop!   Don't co down there, please"—
But he had found Ins trousers, and,
ignoring his wife's words, he hurried into
the hall. Then he stole down stairs
through the dark.itjtd in about half u minute there were sounds of falling Stands
and tumbling chairs nud shaking chandeliers. The old mnn hnd grasped liis antagonist around the neck right at (be

threw him down the front steps.
Wheu ho got bnck up stairs, his wife

"What's the matter?" ho demanded.
"That was a burglar!" they cried.

lint itrfritt.
The young King of Italy and his
bride were walking a short time ago
In the vicinity of a chateau in a
quiet pari of his kingdom where they
were visiting. The afternoon being
warm, horf majesty became thirsty,
nnd said she would like to get a
glass of milk or water somewhere.
An old woman was taking care of
a cow near by, and the King went
and asked her for a little milk.
Fancying that the young man was an
ordinary tourist, the old peasant answered that her cow had no milk.
" But you have some Water at
home?" asked tho King.
"Of course I have," was the reply.
"Will you be good enough to fetch
me some?" continued the King.
"Yes, if you will take care of my
cow until 1 come back," answered
the old woman.
"All right," said Victor Emmanuel, and from that moment ho kept
his eyes ou the cow.
Ten minutes later the old woman
came back with a bowl of fresh water.
"flow Is it," asked the King, "that
there arc so few people here today?"
'"Because they have all gono to
the chateau to see tiie king, queen
and lit.tie princess," was the reply.
"Only old women like me have been
left at home, and so we'll never have
the luck to see the king and his

but even ns they were strolling away

ly visited the Boundary mines, and ln
an Interview wits tbe Nelson Miner
said that be waa' convinced tbat the
mines of the Boundary (could mine and
treat ore for threo dollars a ton This
might not pay Interest on tbe Investment, but lt would- make an allowance
for wear and tear. , Asked If this was
unusally low, he sairi be believed lt was
the lowest cost at- v-hich any metalliferous mines of tbe wojrld were worked,
with tbe possible escoptiou of the Iron
mines of Alabama, aad there colored
labor Is used. G-ilrig further Into details, be said that the-ore bodies were
so large, tbe quantity of timber required so small, and tliir*. ore was such a
perfect flux in ltself't-hat these results
could be obtained. By the svstem of
mining now adopted part of the ore Is
left to fill up the stope until lt is worked out to tbe surface, so that the drill
may be set on It. When one stope Is
finlsed this loose ore will be taken out,
and wbenallin a single stope la considered be thought bbat the cost would
be about as he bad stated. In two
mines he bad seen ore blocked cut tbat
was 130 feet eacn way. He had theiieht
tbat when copper went down to Iii
11 cents that It would be all off with the
Boundary, but now be believed tbat It
could stand ten-cent or possibly nine-
cent copper.—We-Herm Mining World.
