DISCUSSING
THE SPEECH
Salisbury Denies That Boers
Made Any Peace
Overtures.
Foreign Relations Are Dealt
Witn by Lord Rosebery.
London, Jan. 16.���On the opening
night of parliament the debate in tbe
house of lords rib far more interesting than in the house of commons,
which except for Mr, Chamberlain's
speech proved rather dull and languid. In the house of .peers, Lord
I.yttuns son of the poet, diplomatist
seconding tbe address in reply to the
speech from the throne in an able
���pceoh,which drew high praite from
Lord Rosebery as "By far the ablest
he had ever heard upon suoh an occasion," gave an early touch of distinction to thc proceedings,
Earl Spencer, Liberal, criticising
the address, said that while he recognized the impossibility of granting
the Boer demands Ior independence,
yet he deprecated insisting on unconditional surrender. His lordship urged
tho government to promise the Iloers
autonomy, similar to the governments
oF Australia an Canada.
The premier, Lord Salisbury, whose
entrance In to the house wis greeted
with hearty applause,haul he was glad
to hear Karl Spencer vent an utterance, for whioh, he, the premier had
been frequently and unsparingly condemned. It was quite true thnt there
was no possibility of granting the
Boers independence. Neither waa it
tbo government's belief, after being
gratuitously attacked, to inform the
Boers on what terms tbey would be
forgiven, and especially since the
Iloers had not yet expressed a wish to
be forgiven.
Lord Salisbury continued by defending the martial law in Sooth Africa
and urged be opposition to remember
thoy were not dealing with the question whether they could make out
a good case against the government,
lhe premier pleaded that they should
not allow tbeir eagerness to improve
their party position and make them
forget the Issue, whether or no Jreat
Britain should be victor in the war.
He reminded the oppot.!' ion that a
wrong settlement now would impose
grave difficulties and embarrassments
upon tbe nation for many years to
come.
Replying to the premier Lord Rosebery said he favored a passive policy
of peace which would receive overtures l
when these were made and that in !
this connection he wished to know the
trnth of the rumors concerning the
visit to London of Dr. Kuyper, the
premier of Holland; had he brought
such overtures?
"Not so far as I know," answered
Lord Salisbury.
"Have any overtolres been received
from the Boer leaders in Europe?,'
asked Lord Rosebery.
To this question LordSalisbury answered: "No." Lord Rosebery theo
opened an extended criticism by describing King Edward" speech as
the most jojnne ever placed on thc lips
of any monarch. The speaker expressed his scepticism as to tbe mo
tives of the visit to London of Dr
Euypers and said: "I do not suppose
he came to see the old masters." He
twitted Mr. Chamberlain for "Trailing his diplomatic eoat tails and inviting anybody to tread upon it," and
contended that the name of Great
Britain waa now held in hostility
abroad compared with which all previous records faded into insignsifl-
ance.
Lord Rosebery commended the
spirit and tbe words of Mr. Chamberlain's reply to the Imperial chancellor
of Qeimany, Count Von Buelow, but
expressed his anxiety concerning the
constant controversies with Uerraany
and other powers which Mr. Chamoer-
lalnff's dialecties had and wanted to
know where it was going to stop.
Lord Rosebery said indulgency in
the present methods woud give ample
oppoitunity for maintaining that
position of spendid isolation which
the government seemed to deem eminently desirable, but to maintain
whicb   they wonld do   well  to  have
an overpowering fleet and an efficient
army for other powers weio also
building fleets.
During the course of Lord Rosebery'���
speech, Lord Salisbury constantly roso
lo his feet to make corrections or objections thereto until Anally Lord
Rosebery said he would not further
touch upon topics whioh seemed to irritate the premier.
Lord Lansilowno, foreign secretary,
brifly replied to Lord RoBebery, com
bating the view that Groat Britain
was hated abroad,.

ENTHUSIASTIC SEND-OFF
London Streets Crowded to Say Good
Bye to Guardsmen.
London, Jan. 16.���So far as restrained publio enthusiasm was concerned thn spectacle of the coronation
was nothing to what occurred earlier
in the day when the Guards reinforce
ment left their barracks en route t"
South Africa, the guardsmen tramped
through the dark streets of the metropolis at six o'clock in the morning
accompanied by an uproarins mob of
civilian friends, singing songs to the
air of impatient bands, the songs and
music did not drown tbe crying of
women, who olung to the necks and

LAVAL GOES CONSERVATIVE.
Montreal, Jan. 16���Corrected returns
reoeived from Laval this afternoon,
show the election yesterday of Leonard, Conservative, by 16 majority.
Hermann H. Wolff, has been appointed Danish consul-general at
Montreal.
Mayor Fletcher won a splendid victory in the mayoralty contest yester
day and holds the honored postiun of
mayor whioh he has so ably filled for
another year. Both sides undoubtedly
worked hard for their respective candidates but the greater part of the
effort seemed to have been put forward by the Kirkpatrick party as at
loast more of their oarriagea were seen
on the streets than those of Mr. Fletcher. The vote polled was the largest
by much in -the history of Nelson.
Warm as was tbe feeling manifested
on behalf of the two candidates both
sides acted in good spirit and nothing
approaching a quarrel ocourred. In
tne West Ward John Hamilton,
Harold Selous and T J Bosnian were
elected and in the east ward R W
Drev:, Chris Morrison and John Irving. The trustees elected ware Dr.
Hall and F.W Swannell for two years
and Dr Arthur, A L McKillop ana
Johp E Annable for one year.
A very large vote was polled in the
East Ward and great interest was
m anifeated in the result from the it,
from the time the poll opened.; Here
Mayor Fletcher got the large majority
of 45. It ia notable that there were
only two apolied ballots, one of tbem
being a blank.
In th aldermanic contest the feature
iias tbe large vote polled bv Aid.
Hamilton who reoeived 198 vote
showing tbe high appreciation which
hia services in the council are held.
Except from those who voted for McMorris or Scanlan alone he was on almost every ballot, and he was the
choice of a good many who voted for
those two. Aid. Selous ran him a
lose second with 175 votes. The
other three were bunched, Ald.-eleot

would not have been tbe case had Mr.
Elliot been at home to condnol a canvass for himself. His friends did not

who voted the straight Fletcher ticket
was large.
In tbe east ward the contest was

west ward to give Mr. Fletoher tbe
victory by the largest, with one eX'
eception, majority ever polled in
Nelson.
Of the aldermen, _t W Drew headed
the poll with 220. While Mr. Drew
was on the ticket with Mr. Kirkpatriek there was a strong feeling in the
city that be would not consent to be
under tbe domination of anyone and
this with bis personal popularity and
reputation for business ability gave
him an easy lead.

as a result of canvassing. He haa always been a good member in the

dividend of Januaty IStb bb was
promised in December. In announcing the closing o the mine the direr
ters say:
Tbe directors have had your affairs
under very serious consideration, and
regret to say that they are in the same
position as other silver-lead producers
in thia eountiy, which causes tbem
to hesitate before they continue to
part with the valuable product of
your property under present conditions.
The facts are these: Silver-lead
producers in Canada only receive today $1.20 per cental fur the lead contents of the ore; while tbe produuers
ot the same product in the United
States rejive $3.60 per cental. Thank"
to their combine and tli.ir tariff
against foreign lead.
Bnt Ior the fact that your properties
are exceedingly, ricb in silver, we
should not be able to work at a profit
under the above conditions. Now tlie
board are face to face with tbis problem, viz., Should tiiey continue to
sacrifice a propoition of the silver in
your ricb ores in order to meet the
loss incuned ln shipping *Jio lead
with which it is amalgamated and
which may be either avoidei or materially lessened in the future.
The directors have for lhe moment,
and in your intrcest decided i.. the
negative, and hence will cease
operations till they meet you at the
annual general meeting in April (8th)
next, whon the whole subject will be
fully discussed and full weight given
to your views on the subject.

Tlie Nelson Miner
YESTERDAY'S     ELECTION.
Great   interest   was   manifested   in
yesterday's election whieh was shown
by the large vote polled. The principal
fight   was for  the place of mayor and
it was a hattlo royal between   the two
candidates for that position.     On   the
one side was Frank Fletcher, who has
been   mayor   for   the   past   year soil
about the   only   thing that conld   bo
brought against him was that he had,
when   a   portion of tho city   lighting
plant was disabled, secured power for
a abut   peiiod   from thc   West   Kootenay Power snd Light   compnny, and,
at   a subsequent period,   submitted   a
bylaw to the   ratepayers to   decide the
question of whether   thc   city   woulit
enter into a contract to take whatever
horso power it needed   to  supplement
the city lightitng plan for the   peiiod
of a year.    This bylaw   was  defeated
not because it lacked a majority,   but
for the reason that it failed to   eecuie
a   majority of   three-fifth 3   necebsary
under the law to carry it.   Out of this
incident the   opponents of   Mr.   Fletcher   mado   their   prinoipal   political
capital and it was alleged   that   those
acts   wero   but   the   beginning ot   an
attempt   which in tho end   would re
suit in tlie selling out of the privilege
to sell light to the citizenB of the oity
to   the West   Kootenay     Power   and
Light company. It was alleged that a
public utility was in danger.
The charge, however, waB based ou
such an inseoure and flimsy foundation that it failed to have the deBired
effect. There were some other allegation made by Mr. Fletcher 's opponents, but they were so trivial as to
scarcely be worth of consideration.
Ou the other hana the canditate put
up by the Tribune was John A. Kirkpatrick,   a   popular young man,   who
bad served a term in the council, and
who has been identified with the   best
Interests   ot the city since   ita   inception.    Mr. Kirkpatrick had a   host of
friends who would do   anything  that
they could to secure hiB advancement.
It is truet tbat he is rather young   fsir
the responsible position of   mayor and
that he had not the strength of character which a candidate for such a place
should have.     The   fact that he   was
completely   under the  control of ,lohn
Houston, the editor   of   the  Tribune,
who claimed tbat   he   has   made  and
unmade  city   governments, was    too
much of a handicap and   was   one  of
thc leading sources of   his   weakness
There   aro those who strongly believe
if Mr. Kirkpatrick had been free from
(he     entangling   alliance   with    the
editor of the Tribune  that   he  would
have   stood mere   chances   of    being
elected and   that   the   fact   that   Mr.
Houston wilt; his political sponsor was
a   great    handicap   to   bim   in    the
contest.
' Tho result of thu Jiayoralty contest
may therefore be reg.irded as an
indorsation ol the official acts of
Mayor Fletcher during the past yeai
aud as a rebuke tlie one-man power
which a goud many of the electors
oonceived had grown arrogant. It
also evidently means that the political
power of Mr. Uouston, whicb has
long beeu waning, has received what
might 1)3 termed a death blow.
So far as the contest for aldermen is
concerned   it was   not regarded so im
portant by tho electors as the   mayor
alty   fight.     Those   who   have   been
elected   aldermen     are     strong men,
closely identified with thc interests of
the   city   and the outlook ia that they
will give   Nelson a good government
Three    old   aidermeu, Messrs.   Ham
ilton, Selous and   Irving,   havo  been
elected, while Messrs.   Scanlon, Mor
rison and Drew are now to oity official
life.   They may bo relied on to give a
good admisniraion of city afTnirs dur
ing the next 13 months. On the whole
the result should be   pleasing   to   the
citizens as it most ceitainly is to  The
Miner.
troubles of office ths burden was too
great for him he did the best ho
oould but even he himself his not too
high an opinion of tbat best. Almost
pathetically he Intimates that compassion would be appreciated. Thia
is encouraging in that it reveals that
he is but flesh and blood as the rest
of us are and since the heart within
him is touched thero is hope that
whether in publio or private life he
will hereaftor realise that a splendid
isolation is an impossibility aud will
bend his energies in tho direction of
unity and the common good.
What ia outlined for tha futnro
tends to the accadomic as in nothing
does he see his way clear to accomplishing his objoct. Among his plans
aro a railway Irom the coast to Sirail
kameen built jointly by the govern
ments of lhe province and the
Dominion with running privileges to
any line of railway the setting or
colonics Irom Eurapo or elsewhere
upon that agricutursl land of the prov
ince are yet avaiable, the consideration
of thc mine owners grievances,
subsidising the industry of shipbuilding, the taking over of the fisheries and the arranging of a cold storage system ot transportation from the
Interior to tbo coast. But most important of all is the procuring of a larger
proportion from the Dominion gov
ernment of the revenue derived from
this province.

I'KEMIEK'S POLICY.
After nearly two yenrs in ofliee
Premier Dunsmuir hns at last found
what he would have the people of the
proviuce take nn a j olicy. The document promulgating this policy is a
rather lengthy one but the pari of it
devoted to outlining what he would
do or what he says he would like to
do in the future is comparatively
short. The premier in the opening
pages admits himself  worried   by the
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
The Tribune did Kill-patrick as The
Miner predicted several days since.
The captain in the west ward may
be a good steamboat navigator, but
evidently the electors do not think he
is a good municipal navigator.
Wno killed Oock Robin?
I said the sparrow
With my bow and arrow ;
I killed Cock Robin.
Who killed John?
Witb may foul tongue,
I killed John I
How about the red paint with
which Mr. Kirkpatrick was to paint
the town red. Probably it was sold
at a s'lght roducttion to Mr. Fletcter,
who is to be mayor for the next 365
days. Then Mr. Kirkpatrick mav have
a chance to paint the town red.
MY" ticket was not elected yesterday. This is a rebuke to one who
said he electe d Mayor Fletoher and
his council, and who thereby insulted
the electors of the city. The would-be
political champion h is been knocked
out in a single round. The people
did it with a right hand swing with
the ballots.
Mayor Floteher as soon as the result
of the polling was announced shook
hands warmly with Mr. Kirkpatrick
and the latter congratualated the
former en his victory. Three hearty
cheers were given for each as they
walked dowu the street arm in arm in
the most friendly manner. This is the
proper spirit to show, and one which
should be imitated. The majority
rules under a constitutional form of
government and .uliat is the use of
making the end of each election time
for beginning a new set of political
feuds.
The bow almost killed papa and fo
a few minutes last evening it was
thought he would die of a cumplica-
tionwhich set in consisting of a bad
attack of publio utilities. Happily
connection was obtained with the city
electrical plant and after a few shocks
tho patient was pronounced out of
danger. His physicians were fearful
that the publio utility attack might
at any moment develop into something
serious, but at a late hour this mum
ing the patient was resting easy.
Hank clearances are a good index of
the amount of business transacted.
The clearance of Canada are increasing rapidly. The clearances for Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Halifax,
Vancouver, II.C, Hamilton, St. Johns,
N.I!., and Victoria show an increase
of 17.7 per cent, in W01 ovor the year
lUOO. The clearance for these citieB
In ll��01 was $1,871,001,725, while lu
1U00 it was $1,END,500,4111. A country
in which eight cities transact
business to such large amounts and
tbe money that passes through the
cloaring house only represents a por
tion of tbe business transacted.
Out of the 215 mining companies of
the United states they Ior the eleven
months of last year ending Nov. 3l)th
paid out the enormous sum of $146,
000,000 in dividends. This represents
actual profits. To say that a tithing of this any millions has been invested in mining ventures ir the,
United States during the past yoar
aud lost to the investors would be
regnrded as an insane statement by
anyone at all familiar with mining
and with the output ofjtbe mines of
the U. S. country for eleven months,
or for forty or fifty years past.

���Ber Ortevmnet*.
Distressed by ber cook's frequent
complaints of toothache, a mistress of
the upper west side decided a few
days ago that lt was time to recommend heroic remedies.
"Hannah, there is no use putting It
off any longer. There is Dr. Jones over
there. He promises to extract teeth
without pain. Why dont you see him
nnd have lt over with?"
Hannah scarcely relished tbe suggestion, but after another night's suf-
r..rinK sorrowfully nnuouueed, " 'Deed,
1 kin jess stand dis uo longnh," anil
asked permission to go to Dr. Jones.
Her mistress rejoiced in the thought
that the agony was nt last to be ended. When nn hour later, however, she
beheld Hannah march down the area-
way steps, the whiles of her eyeB flashing and her head bobbing with a ve-
herneuce born of righteous fury, vision!
not only of lost molars, but of a departing cook came before her. She entered with the dignity of an Insulted
African queen.
"Anything wrong, naunah? Didn't
he get tho right teeth?" ventured tbe
mistress.
"Got de right teef all right and a dol-
lah an a half besides. Vus'in, be did
��o."
"Well, did he hurt you?"
"No'm, can't say he did."
"Then what's tbe matter?"
"Well, Miss 'Liza, didn't you tell me
dnt man ober dcre 'stracted teet wld-
out payln?"
Fan Haa ���*. Valuable Side.
"Show me a man wbo does not
appreciate humor," snid John Kendrick
Hangs to me, "and I will show you
a man wbo Is morbid, cynical, unresponsive to every call of nature.
Such a man Is worse than a pessimist
and more to be pitied. Take some of
the greatest and most successful men
In the world. Humor has alwnys played an important part In their lives.
Often a funny Incident has marked
tho turning point of a great man's
career. Often some ridiculous condition has been tbe impetus of a new
start In life."
Mr. Bangs is right. Did not Columbus' apparently hopeless task of standing an egg on end make thinkers of
the wise men wbo snt around him?
Was not George Washington credited
with being a master of the truth because he once saw a boy punished for
trying to jest with bis father and flnnl-
ly became, as Mr. Bangs facetiously
remarks, so "be couldn't tell a He even
If he saw one?" And didn't Johann
Gutenberg Invent tho printing press
by working cut a theory which found
its origin while he waa playing leapfrog with some boys on damp ground?
The impression made In the soil by the
boys' feet Is said to have given Gutenberg bis flrst Idea of the Impression

Trrlner to Mnke Parly Dollar*..
Here Is a hard luck story apropos of
efforts to make a little sum In Wall
Btreet: A young man started with $100
and rnn It up to $9,000, or $40 less than
an even $10,000. The desire to round
out the $10,000 goaded him on. He
said to his broker, "If I can make that
additional $40 ou a quick turn I will
draw out my $10,000 and Invest it In
real estate." It was a strong bull market, but things appeared sky high, and
he picked out an active stock to sell
short. I think he landed on T. C. and
I., which bad a phenomenal rise and
was due to drop anywhere from 10 to
50 points. He sold 100 shares at par,
Intending to close It out at 99. But
Instead of going down the blamed
thing soared to 120. At every three
points' gain be sold another 100 until
he was carrying all he could tote. In
24 hours he lost nearly every cent It
had taken him three months to make.
With what little he had left he bought
T. I. on tbe recession to 11G, friends of
the Hanover Matlonal bank assuring
him that it was going to 150. Then
came the firewonks and the funeral.
The bottom fell out of the specialty
and young Dr. Knowall found himself
$10,000 in debt He besn't .b<">u la
Wall street since.

The Farion and the Skipper,
An old globe circler says that ln
going around the world there Is scarcely oue trovelcT In a hundred who remembers that In going from east to
west a day Is gained aud that in going
from west to east a day is lest Many
of those who come into contact with
this truth knew all about it when they
were at school, but never think of it
on the high seas. Iu illustration of
the point he tells this story:
"My llrst trip around the world was
from England to Australia. Out lu
the middle of the l'aclllc a sign was
put . nounciug that the date was
Thursday, July 17. This was all right
but the uext day the same sign was
put up again. This was an opportunity for those of us who thought we
were real wise to show the ship's
officers that they were not lufnlllhle.
After we had expended our choicest
sarcasm and had beeu rebuffed by various officers the captain set us
straight
"On my way back one day the card
wont up announcing that lt was Saturday. Aug. 13. The next day the sign
said Monday, Aug. 15. Two ministers
on board thought the captain a somewhat profane old salt, who bad skipped a day to avoid tlie religious services which they had prepared. He
convinced them that It wns a mere
coincidence that on that particular
date the lost day was Sunday. Since
then I have never attempted to teach
the ship's navigator his business, and
be can skip a century If he wishes
without  my  saying  a  word."*
Surprised hy Dickens.
"I vividly recall hearing Charles
Dickens read selections from his own
writings in Steinway ball, New York
city, shortly after the close of our civil
war," said a well known judge. "The
hall was densely packed with an audience of cultured people, by far the major part of whom were intense admirers of the man who was to entertain
them that evening. I was a youngster
theu, but was glad to part with $2 fo
hear tho author of 'Nicholas Nlekleby'
read his own lines. Bat his appearance on the stage, though greeted by
applause, was a distinct shock, so thoroughly out of keeping was his costume
with the conventional evening attire of
a gentleman. He was clad In a short
velvet coat that looked exactly like a
smoking jacket, velvet vest to n:.itcli
and a flaming red necktie. Such a
garb was In reality an affront and nn
Impertinence to that fashionably clad
assemblage. But lt was overlooked as
an eccentricity of genius, and much
applause attended tbe rendition.
"Nowadays the newspapers would
roast any man, however famous, for
daring to come before the public In
such grotesque attire, but 1 do not recall thnt any of the New York papers
criticised the distinguished visitor for
his   sartorial   laxity." ���

he could abide neither as man nor

No Snakes In Hawaii.
The centlped is the only poisonous
Insect on the Hawaiian Islands, and its
���ting here is no more dangerous than
the sting of a wasp or hornet In the

always brings Berlous consequences.
Hawaii Is fortunate, too, in having no

The Antithetical Chinaman.
To attempt to get a Chinaman to assign a reason for anything Is futile.
One dny while riding a doukey through
the country west of Peking I noticed
that the women of tlie country villages,
mostly farmers' wives and daughters,
did not biud their feet I sold to the
donkey driver who wns running along
beside me, "The country women do aot
bind their feet, do tbey?"
"No."
"Why?"
"They do not bind tbeir feet"
"Why Is It thnt the Chinese women
bind their feet?"
"Tbey bind their feet"
"But why do they do It?1
"That Is their custom."
"But why is It their custom?"
"There Ib no why���no reason whatever."
Ask a child, "Why did your brother
not come to school todny ?"
"My brother did not come to school
today."
Or Inquire of a man, )'Why Is lt that

answer, "That Is tbe way to build a

Many expressions of regret at the

Tie Tr����*li Of an Brttltt.
The many thousands ot miles which
a man unconsciously travels ln his lifetime, taking into consideration the
paces his footsteps measure as lis
walks about each day, are enough to
make him alt down to reBt for the remainder of his life.
But now a German scientist has
come forward with some still more
startling facts concerning the Journeys
which our eyelid undertakes every
time lt winks, and It Is not possible for
us to see, he says, unless we wink.
Unconsciously wc wink once a second,
so that for the time we are awake during the day we voluntarily wink from
48,000 to 50,000 times and In a year
have moved our eyelids down and up
again no less than 18,250,000 times.
The distance that the eyelid travels In
Its great speed Is measured from a single Involuntary wink.
Tbls, the scientist says, Is a quarter
of an Inch both ways, the eyelid mov
Ing equally up and down, so that, taking the movement of both eyelids Into
consideration, they cover some 60,000
Inches ln a day. The eyelids of a man
who has lived for 50 years will have
unconsciously traveled a third of the
way around the earth, or about 7,200
miles, a calculation sufficient ln Itself
to cause tbe victim of Insomnia to fall
Into a dreamless sleep as he reads It.���

A Dead Face In lhe Window.
Crockford, the proprietor of a well
known London gambling house, was
made to play a queer role after he waa
dead. When one of Crockford's horses
was poisoned Just before the Derby,
the misfortune brought on an attack
of apoplexy, which proved fatal within 48 hours. Now, many of Crock-
ford's friends had staked large sums
on another of the gambler's horses,
which was a favorite for the Oaks and
which was disqualified by the death
of the owner. Only the people In the
gambling house knew of Crockford's
death, and lt was resolved to keep It
a secret until after tbe race.
The servants were bribed and sworn
to secrecy, and tha conspirators oa
tbe day after tbe night upon which
Crockford died had tbe body placed la
a chair at a window, so that people returning from tbe track could see ths
gambler sitting there. He was axes'
up to look as lifelike as possible and
through tbe window and partially ooa-
cealed from view by the curtains looked so natural that no one of the great
crowd which cam* cheering by the
house when on their return from seeing Crockford's horse win the Oaks
suspected tbe trick.
The next day lt was annonnced that
Crockford was dead, but It waa years
before the true story leaked out.
Faithful IheBfcerd Dosi.
A cold spell ln Montana killed a
sheep herder ln the Great Falls district. Two feet of snow covered the
range In places, and the thermometer
indicated 40 degreea below sere
The herder was frozen to death �����
tbe prairies while earing for the sheep,
and It was three days before his fate
was known to his employers. Twe
shepherd dogs were with him when he
died, and one of these staid with his
body while the other sttended to the
sheep, just as though the herder had
been with bim. The dog drove them
out on tbe range tn the morning and
back again at night, guarding them
from wolves and preventing them from
straying off. Neither dog had anything to eat during the three days'
vigil, so far as could be ascertained,
but the 2,500 sheep thrived as well apparently as though directed by humaa
agency. The singular fact about ths
matter Is that these faithful creatures
would hare starved to death rather
than harm one ��" ha sheep left In
their charge.
Ho Fornava Twain.
Many years ago tbe Montana clnb In
Helena entertained Mark Twain after
a lecture. He met many old friends
there and one old enemy. The hitter
had come all the way from Virginia
City, Nev., on purpose to settle an eld
score. When the glasses were filled
and Mark's health proposed, this man
Interrupted the proceedings by saying:
"Hold on a minute. Before we go further I want to any to you, Bam Clemens, tbat you did me a dirty trick over
there ln Silver City, and I've come
here to bare a settlement with you."
There was a deathly silence for a
moment, when Mark said In his deliberate drawl: "Let's see. That���was���
before���I���reformed, wasn't���It?"
Senator Sanders suggested that Inasmuch as the other fellow bad never reformed Clemens and all the others
present forgive him and drink together,
which all did.
Ono of Hor Wars.
"The ways of the female shopper
are beyond the ordinary salesman's
ken," Bald a disgusted optician wbo Is
In business In the shopping section of
the city. "A woman came In here the
other day and asked the prices of all
kinds and styles of spectacles and eyeglasses known to those In the trade.
Finally, after a half hour's quizzing,
she rustled out with the remark:
"Thank you, J expect to get a pair of
glasses for a birthday present, and I
Just wanted t/> knew about the prices
of them.'"

"Give us proof of your boasted wisdom.".cried a lot of chattering magpies
