It ir not safe to use any medicine indiscriminately, nor should tho contents
of nny unlabeled vial be guessed at or
taken on trust. Tho results are seldom
harmless, often dangerous and usually
unpleasant. Thus when Thomas Kane
sprained bis knee, last week, at the
Wakefield, and anointed it with carbolic
acid, he exemplified tho truth of our
first assertion. Be sure you're right,
then go ahead--especially with medicines.
The confiding fakir finds a field ripe
for the harvest when he stiikes a western iniiiiti- town. We use the term
"fakir" advisedly and wilhout piedudice.
In the west the average man patronises
freely the most transparent frauds, at all
prices, from two-bits up. The variety
of fakirs is many, all are lucrative here
Tbe "old miner" who is minus an arm
or leg, has a living assured him. His
two bits is always ready ior him. The
winner with artistically painted ulcers
usually presents an appearance which
will nol sllow and does not invite any
closeness of observation. One of this
[clast was lately olis-rved unbluahingly
exhibiting lhe result of his skill with a
blistering acid, ami informing his and-
ieuce that it resulted from "tuberculosis
of the glanders." Then we have regular
callers in the solder man, the sodium-
fire fakir, tbe bent-wire genius, and so
on up tbe list until wu find those who
bolder un the ranks of strictly professionals. And who can say where the fakir
cease? unci the artisan, the tradesman
or tbe professional man begins?

around that as a result of the lt*st
niine oNrners'meeting in Sandon, held
last Wednesday, all the mines "from
Roundary to Revelstoke' will be shut
down tight! This ii to be an awful
example to the Legislator-- of what the
mine owners can do in the way of
revenge. It is not stated whether
thia report is intended for popular
credence* or merely a joke of the merry
mine owners. It is credited to several members who attended the meeting.

The twin evils o( Ihe present day are
Mamtnonism and Militarism—the offspring .,! gr ed and sensualism. They
are the foes of peace aud plenty. By
them are homes destroyed, manhood
stunted and vice propagated. Antagonistic to human brotherhood, Ihey are
deadly enemies of the cause of Christ
Thev are to-day busy nt their deadly
work throughout Christendom. We see
Iheir handiwork In the poverty o( the
tollers and In the base and debilitaling
ItixurloiisnosB ol so many o( tbe wealthy.
Under the inspiration of one ol them the
Pre)(us infamy wasc.ommited In France
and by thu other Idaho outrage is made
