The sal.) of two-thirds of tho Fidelity
flume to Scott McDonald of thn l'ayuo
line lor a cash priced *10.000, is the
,,riiicTiil Item of mining news this week
Ld came rather ns a surprise, although
! nie has been often talked about. This
..le covers all the interests hold in tho
_ro..p by A. S. Williamson and L. F.
Holt/, the remaining one-third interest
being'retained by F. L. Byron. The
claims involved are tho Fidelity, Fidelity
Fraction, Cuckerjaek ami Broken Lock.
The sale was made thiough iMimagerFin-
nucdiie of the Bank oi Montreal, New
Denver. The outcome of this sab will
probably mean tha rw-orameimemeDt of
work on the Fidelity and ore shipments
from that -.ropprty this winter are expected to swell considerably the total output ol the I-ake mines.
The Fidelity will start work now in less
(han ten davs with a force of at least ten
men and will bo worked from Silverton
This property has been so often spoken of and described in the coluniusof Iho
Bttw-w-u-j that most of oui readers
nre doubtless familiar with its surf.uo
and underground developement. The
amount of work done upon it 1ms been
w-fticeiit to place It on the list ol our
shipping mines and Mr. McDonald has
acquired a valuable property very cheaply in hil went purchase. Messrs. Holt/.
and Williamson hVt\ alio come out well
in the property which cost them pnMtl-
raily only their share of the record in-:
fees and they are to be congratulate!
on their sale.
A mining deal has just been consumat-
ed, tbat means another working mine on
Silverton's gold belt and will stimulate
other owners in that neighborhood to
open up their properties. Frank L.
Byron, of Silverton, hns purchased the
entire interests of D. K. McDonald of
Trail, in the Commander, Congo and
Bristol claims on Red mountain, for a
cash consideration. This group of
claims lies between the L. II. mino and
Littlo Daisy, and mo acknowledged by
nil who have examined them as being a
good and promising property. Work will
bo commenced at ot:co under tho supervision of (lus Kruger, who will start
work on Monday next with four miners.
Mr, Byron examined this property nnd
leported on it to those who wero supposed to ho willing to go in with him, hut
they wanted too much time toroaxumine
and experiment, and as Mr. Byrou knew
that the 11181161- must bo attended to nt
once, lie staked his property and rep.;-
Ulion on his judgement and closed with
the owner, Mr. McDonald, torcabh and
acquired all hi 'uU*rest in tho property
fur himself.
more work on this property this winter,
if they do not sell out before that time.
It is to bs hoped that this property will
not long remain idle, as it is proving
jtself to be well worth  working.
It is rumored that somo work is to be
done on the Galena Farm Group-, lying
on the lake shore just south of Silverton
This property must not bo confused with
the Galena Mines, locally known as the
"Galena Farm." The Galena Farm
proper was christened a little over a year
ago and comprises four claims, lt is
hoped that this work will show up something of value on the property ns this ia
at present all that the Galena Farm lacks.
Ore was struck at the Edinburgh the
other day.
The Turris claim on Goat mountain,
gives overy indication of proving as good
if rot a better property than the much
talked of Mollio Hughes. There lire
three parallel ledges on tho property all
of which hnve good surface showings.
The vein that is being opened up shows
its self to he nbout seven feet wide with
an eight inch pay streak, and plenty of
samples can be secured that will assay
1000 ounces and over in silver.

enough to strike tho oro slnito exposed

Thoso workings being on the Fidelity
vein, judging from tho work done ou
that property and oro exposed, and the
showing made on tho Boatswain chum,
show that the owners have undoubtedly
got u very valuable prospect, and it is
only a matter of developement work to
make a valuable shipping mine out of it.

A Famous Old DUtrlet in I-nbo-
gnpphlres-n Montana—The Centre
Star Mine Sold for Two Mllllons-
Mtll Ran a Few Honra—Mining
Silver City7 Idaho, had a wonderful
-reputation for wealth a third of a century ago, when the mines en War Eagle
mountain were producing an abundance
of gold, even with the most primitive
methods of production and with the nearest railroad point hundreds of miles distant.
One of the celebrated properties of this
camp which is still steadily producing
and paying dividends at a heavier rate
than the Le Roi of Rossland ever did,
is the Trade Dollar mine. It is making
- regular .shipments of ore in car lota that
will average away up in the thousands of
dollars per ton in free gold. The Black
Jack and De Lamar are also well known
War Eagle properties which have produced steadily and paid dividends aggregnt-
ing lai-ge sums.
A group of three properties which
made enormous records for production of
gold ore in the Ws and early 70's comprises the Golden Chariot, Ida Elmore
and Oro Fino mines. It waa not unusual
in these properties to encounter bunches
of oro in considerable quantities averaging
over $5000 per ton. The Ida Elmore and
Golden Chariot were worked through
shafts to a depth of 1200 and 1500 feet, respectively, under primitive methods. Tlie
water was all hoisted out of these shafts
in buckets. Under modern methods of
mining these mines would have continued
work far beyond the depths, which, in
those days, were consideml insuperable.
Ever since these mines have been shut
down their waste dumps have been hand
sluiced at a profit, while the water season lasted, the fine stun* being washed
into riffle boxes and the coarse stuff
sorted by hand. In this manner thousands of tons of so called waste from
the mines have been laboriously treated
at a profit by the slow and tedious pro-
ceases of hand labor.
The Centre Star Sold.
The great Centre Star mine at Rossland waa sold Saturday and it brought
the biggest price ever paid for a mining
property in the Kootenays. The price
waa $2,000,000, and it ia a cash transaction. The purchasers are the Gooder-
ham-Blackstock syndicate of Toronto,
who own the controlling: interest in the
War Eagle Consolidated Mining and Development Company.
Of the 500,000 shares of the capital
stock, Oliver Duront and Alexander Tar-
bet of Salt Lake own 300,000 shares, Sir
Charles Ross, Bart., owns 30,000 shares,
and the 1-trick Largey estate of Butte,
Mont., most of the remaining 100,000. It
is stated that Mr. Williamson has invested $100,000 of his own money with the
Uood«rh-r-.Hl-rkjjti.>gi- - ayMwte.-ift*-**''**-
purchase of the Centre Star.
The deal reached a climax Saturday,
when Volney D. Williams of Spokane on
behalf of his principals, went to the
Centre Star mine, took formal possession
and discharged Foreman Joyce and all
the employes.
The Uncle Sain.
R. A. Bell, it is said, has just acquired
control of ground supposed to be rich in
gold near the celebrated Uncle Sam pocket, about four miles south of Helena,
Mont. The fame of the golden pocket
of the Uncle Sam mine is world-wide. Ilie
product of this deposit waa so exceedingly rich that armed guards were employed to keep people from carrying otf
the ore aa it came from the shaft. Almost every piece of rock taken from the
mine showed groat quantities of free gold
in the quartz. But the vein suddenly
pinched out and its continuation has
never been found, though it is being
hunted for to this day. The Uncle Sam
is located directly south of Helena about
four miles and six miles northwest of
Clancy, and was possibly a sort of contact between the lime and granite formation, as there is a lime belt of three
or four miles iu width between Helena
and the mine—though the Uncle Sunt

A Mill Closed.
The closing down of the Poorman mill
in Florence Camp, Idaho, after a short
run of a few hours has caused much comment from various sources, not only all
over the district, but among the stockholders in Tacoma and outside point*.
Portland atockholdera have deemed it
wise to send in a representative to ascertain just wherein the fault lies. It has
been stated that several hundred pounds
the increased trade. C. E. Rummel, who
operates a placer mine at Snake Creek,
said: "This bas been a prosperous season
for the miners in the Pierce district, a
majority of them having made paying
clean ups. We have had a good supply
of water and havo succeeded in cleaning
up $1700. This has paid us good wages,
besides putting our mine in shape for
handling more dirt next season. This
fall we will strip our dirt nnd he in shape
to commence work in thc spring. From
all over the district I hear most encouraging reports of the wCTit^eTTig^oiia ahd |~
believe that with work resumed on the
Crescent mine and the development of
other properties this fall the Pierce district must forge ahead."
Mining* Brief*.
Tlie Midway Advance snys that some
rich strikes have 'been made recently up
the main Kettle river from that place.
It is reported Unit the main ledge on
the Athelstan has been Mi-nek on the
Jack Pot claim in Wellington Camp,
Boundary Creek, B. C.
It is reported that a great body of ore
has been struck on the Crown Point
claim in Crown Point camp just west of
Rock Creek on Kettle river.
It is reported that the Sunday Morning
mine near the Helen E. in the. Pierre's
Lake district on the north half of the
Colville reservation lias been sold for
cash to California parties for $15,000.
The heated term has had a quieting effect upon the Spokane mining stock market and no sale.s of great importance
were reported during the week, though
brokers report a healthy inquiry for Republic stocks.
Cariboo, Camp McKinney, stock is
soaring in the eastern markets. The Toronto World pays that it is expected to
reach $1 on the strength of the reorganization of the company which is about to
be effected. nie price is ranging between 80 and 85 cents.
P. A. Daggett of Spokane received a
letter from D. C. Clark saying that a rich
lead of ore has been cut on the Sunrise
claim in thc Slocan and that the lead runs
directly through tho Dorothy claim,
which is owned by the Ruth No. 2 Miuing Company of Sj-okane. Thc Ruth hns

The men who were working on a copper
prospect just above Lake Blaine, Mont.,
have given it up, says the Knlispell Inter-Lake. They had found some rock
that was promising, but concluded after
working on it a while that it was not
worth following up.
Reports from Bear Gulch, Mont., during the week continued to bring information of fubuously rich returns from the
recent placer locations in that district,
r.nd a veritable stampede to thut camp
has resulted. Among other reports of
rich diggings it is stated that George
Rockinger washed out nearly two ounces
of gold dust in less than five hours Tuesday.
The Mammoth mine in the Coloma district, western Montana, has been attached by Larabie Brothers,Deer Lodge baznk-
ers, and hy W. B. Hosmer of Boston,
president of the company, for debts ag-
BTWfJIIg lilimilt $&">,000. It is said that
the company has spent over $100,000 in
development in the last 18 months. Tlie
equipment comprises a compressor,
hoist and five stamp mill.
Tlie lower Chest mill has started up on
Chest ore at Murray, Idaho. They have
enough ore out for a month's run with
ten stamps.
There were twelve property transfers
placed on the records of Shoshone county,
Idaho, lust week, with a total valuation
of $3000. Nine locations were recorded
during the same time.
The whole June output for the Montana Mining Company waa 2020 ounces of
gold and 16,700 ounces of silver from
0211 tons of ore cmshed, and 11,501 tons
of tailings from the dams, says the Mv
rysville Mountaineer. The estimated realizable value of the crushings is $43,400,
and of the tailings $23,800; the cost of
treating the tuilings was $13,443. The
total expense was $58,000, leaving a net
income of $9200.

Rico, Aug.-8;—(Correspondence of the Chicago Inter Ocean,
Aug. 15.)—Ever since Guayama was occupied, three days ago, the natives have
been demonstrative in praising tlie Americans, and in showing how delighted they
were at the retreat of the Spaniards. Today there came a change, which was not
at all surprising to those who know the
character of the Puerto Ricans.
It was just 1 o'clock this afternoon
when a horseman came galloping into
town shouting "Send the dynamite guns
at once. The Fourth Ohio is 'being annihilated."
In less than five minutes the alarm had
spread throughout the town and the
streets wero filled with soldiers hurrying
to their quarters.
The natives disappeared as if by magic,
not a single one of them remaining in
sight. Shutters were hurriedly put up
on all the shops that were open, the hack
men rushed their horses to their stables
and everywhere the natives showed by
their actions that they anticipated the recapture of the town by the Spaniards.
The fears of some of the women led
them to seek protection in the cathedral,
where they spent the time in prayer. Tlie
whole incident showed how little reliance
can be placed in tlie sincerity of pro-
American protestations of the natives.
Ran Into an Ambuscade.
The Spanish attack grew out of the
fact that Colonel Colt, Major Dean and
Lieutenant Wardman. the latter of General Brooke's staff, had, with Companies
A and C of the Fourth Ohio, started early in the morning to rcconnoiter to the
northward, with the object of ascertaining the truth of the reports that tho
Spaniards had mined the bridges on thc
road to Cayey, whither General Brooke's
command is bound.
Knowing the smallnesa of the reconnoi-
tering party, the report that they bad
been attacked by the Spaniards caused
much excitement at the Guayama headquarters.
A strong force was at once hurried to
the front. There were no horses to haul
the dynamite guns, and the men buckled
to and dragged them over the hills for
five miles to the scene of action.
On the way several straggling privates
of Company C were met. They reported
that that company and Compuny A had
lieen practically annihilated by Spanish
artillery. They declared that they were
too tired to fight any more.
It was also reported that Captain Bid-
die of Company C had been wounded in
the engagement, but it was subsequently
learned that he had been overcome hy
the heat.
At 2 o'clock the reinforcements reached
a turn of the road and the whole scene of
the engagement lay before them. They
stood directly on the spot where the first
ambuscade had been made. The roud
here took a sudden turn to the right,
while 300 yards further on it made a
quick turn to the left Thus the marching troops were exposed at both turns
to fire from the hills, on either side.
Spaniards   Behind   Earth work*.
Tlio Spaniards were about 000 yards
away. They were entrenched on one
side behind a blockhouse and on the other
behind earthworks located on the top of
a hill.
Nothing but a shallow ditch on the left
side of the road had aaved the American
troops, for that the fire hud been blistering hot there wus shown by the trees,
the leaves and boughs of whieh had been
torn away by the Spanish shot.
For the greater part of two hours the
Americans lay in the ditch, the Spaniards
meanwhile directing a hot fire against
them but not attempting to charge them.
A stampede was started in Company C
by the collapse of Captain Biddle, who
was prostrated by the heat When he
fell it was generally believed that he had
been shot, .
Tlie effect on the men might have been
serious had it not been for Lieutenant
Wardman, who assumed command of the
company and fought gallantly through
the engagement. As soon as the reinforcements arrived he pressed on with
his men to the top of thc hill.
Some time before this the enemy had
stopped their cross fire, but as soon _*
the Americans climbed the hill thc Spaniards opened a hot fire from the blockhouse. The Americans rushed through
the hail of bullets toward the blockhouse,
and the Spaniards started to retreat.

Oor Ships Were Under Orders Not to
Attuek, and Fled Fast for Safety-
Sun Francisco Was Dauinited-
811 via Went Back.
—Key ■ w-srsugnnr
Francisco, the monitor Mkintouomah aud
the uuxiliary yacht Silvia were tired upon
by tho Havana batteries shortly before
6 o'clock Saturday morning. One 10 and
two 12-inch shells struck the Sun Francisco's stern as she was turning to get
out of range, and tore a hole about a
foot iu diameter, completely wrecking
Commodore Howell's quarters and
smashing his book case into fragments.
No one was injured, and being under orders not to attack the batteries, the ships
departed as fast as Uieir engines would
carry Uiem.
The flag-hip and the Silvia lay parallel
to each other, not more thuu a mile from
Mono castle, und separated from each
other by between three-eighths and three-
quarters of a mile. The Miantonomuh
lay about thret'-quurters of a mile to the
rear ol the others. All were within range
of the Spanish batteries, aud the temptation we* too strong for thc Spaniards U>
Morro Opened Fire.
The first glimmer of dawn was breaking through tlie eastern skies when, without an instant's warning, the lookout on
the flagship saw a jet of smoke puff from
one of Monro's big guns. Almost before
he could pull himself together sulliciently
to make a report of the incident 10 and
12-incli shells were screaming all around.
Thc Spaniards had thc range und apparently were grimly iu earnest in their
last ttrorts to wreak injury ou their too
mighty foe. Shells fell between the San
Francisco and Silvia; some fell short, a
few went over them. The flagship signalled the Silvia to get out of range without delay, und both ships swung around
and made for the sea.
San Francisco Waa Strack.
It wus then that the shell struck the
San Francisco's stern. Commodore Howell
was on deck with Captain Leary when the
shell struck. With the utmost speed the
fleet moved out about three miles. Here
the men on the flagship patched up the
ragged hole in the vessel's stern. All the
shells tired at the vessel fell around the
ships. One of the Silvia's men stood
calmly oil the deck of the yacht watch in
hand und counted them. Morro castle
fired several of the missiles, but how
many is not known. The others came from
two sand batteries near Morro. The firing
lasted 20 minutes.
Silvia Went Back Again.
The one-sided engagement had scarcely
ended w lien the men of the 'Silvia were
treated to another surprise. The little
yacht gunboat is manned by tlie New
York naval militia. Her crew had barely
recovered from the excitement when the
flagship called the vessel over and Captain Betters was given a packet of *i-ivuic
documents which he was ordered to take
into Havana under a flag of truce. The
white Hag wus hoisted over the Silvia and
she steamed towards the guns which had
just given her such noisy greeting. As
the Silvia approached to within a mile
of Morro the character of the flag floating
from her foremast was discerned and the
castle signalled: "What is your purposet"
To this the Silvia answered: "We have
papers to deliver."
Morro did not resume tho conversation, and for some little time the gunboat
rocked on the waters, almost under the
still smoking cannon of the enemy. Presently, however, a Spanish gunboat drew
out of the harbor and came close to the
Silvia. It was the Mart in y Pinzon, and
carried a much stronger battery than the
American ship. The customary fonnul
salutations were exchanged and Lieutenant W. G. Ford, the executive officer of
tbe Silvia, boarded the Pinzon and delivered the documents. The ceremony
occupied no more time than the physical
act involved. Thc American officer returned to his ship and the vessels went ou
their respective ways.
Bad  Fire at  Freano.

fected by the Air,
While lightning may be seen and its ii-'
lumination of clouds and mist may be
recognized when it is even 200 miles distant, thunder is rarely audible more than
10 miles. The thunder from very distant
storms, therefore, seldom reaches the ear.
The reason of the groat uncertainty in the
j__-i__ity_-f_thunder is --ot-drfrh-utrV
understand. It depends not,merely on
the initial intensity of the crash,   but
quite as much on the surroundings of ths
observer, even as in the quiet Country on«
will observe feeble sounds that escape the
ear in a noisy city. Perhaps the most
curious and important condition of audibility is thut tlie thunder wave of sound
shall not be refracted or reflected by the
layers of warm and cold air between tlie
observer and the lightning or by the layers of the wind, swift above and slow below, so as to entirely pass over or around
the observer. Sound in its wave-like
progress obliquely through layers of air
of different intensities is subject to refraction, and this refraction may occur at
any time und plate. Thus, observers at
the topmast of a ship 1,-equently hear fog
whistles thut are inaudible at sea level;
those on hill tops hear thunder that can
not bc heard in the valley; those in front
of an obstacle hear sounds that are inaudible to those behind it. The rolling
of thunder, like that of distant cannonade, may be largely due to special reflections and refractions of sound.

Washington, Aug. 15—It seems to be
settled that Ambassador Hay is to succeed Secretary Day when the latter becomes chairman of the peace commission.
The authority for this statement is unofficial, hut from a source which shows
that such is the determination of the
president at present
The indications are that Secretary Day's
resignation from the state department will
be in and accepted within a week. It is
understood that the president contemplates the appointment of Secretary Day
to a circuit judgeship after the work of
the peace commission has been finished.

Pear* That They Have Been Flitlit-
Iiik Since the Fourth of August--
The Inaursenta May Have Looted
Manila Uefore the New* of Peace
New York, Aug. 16.—JA special to the
Tribune from  Washington  says:
Cable communication with Manila will
probubly be re-established within the
next day or two, if the efforts of this
government, supported by those of Great
Britain and Spain, are successfully directed, in order that further bloodshed may
be averted and the suspense relieved.
It is understood that Admiral Dewey
has been in possession of the Philippine
end of the cable for over two months, although he was unable to secure the legal
terminus of tlie line, which is located
within the city of Manila, and, through
thc strict construction placed upon the
rules of neutrality, his operators were unable to secure any response to their signals from the Hong Kong terminal, This
restriction made necessary the frequent
sending of dispatch boats back and forth
to Hong Kong and recently the severed
end of the cable has been buoyed and no
attention paid to it.
Order* Sent Saturday.
On the vessel that started for Manila
Saturday .from Hong Kong went orders to
restore submarine telegraphic communication at once, and, as the American
forces, by the terms of the protocol, are
in possession of the Philippines from an
international standpoint, whether they
actually hold the municipality or not,
and as hostilities have been formally terminated and thc requirements of neutrality abolished, all obstacles to the
free use of the cable have been removed.
Until Manila is in closer touch with
the rest of the world than it has been
for the last three and one-half months,
officials in Washington will be harassed
by the gravest anxiety regarding the occurrences in that vicinity. The last news
from Manila wau dated 10 days ago and
described the fierce fighting at Malate on
July 31, when thc Americans held their
position which had been assaulted. August
3 there was cannonading all day. The
Monterey arrived August 4 with three
transports of thc third expedition and at
the same time the dispatch vessel left
preparations were being made for an immediate assault upon the city. It was
known that General Merritt was only
waiting these reinforcements to demand
the surrender anil give formal notice of
a naval bombardment. Under these circumstances every precaution was taken
last Friday to inform Admiral Dewey and
(ieneral Merritt with the least possible
delay of the formal signing of tho protocol and thc suspension of hostilities.
May Get Order* Todny.
When the protocol was signed, followed
immediately by the sending of cable dispatches to Admiral Dewey and General
Merritt, it wus broad daylight Saturday
morning at .Manila, lt takes fully a minute at the most generous calculation to
send a single word to Hong Kong by cable. Acting Secretary Allen and Adjutant General Corbin each sent several
hundred words of instructions to thc respective coiinuaiulers under them, including copies of the president's proclamation,
and it is therefore unlikely that the ves
sel was able to start before Saturday afternoon. Manila is 028 miles from Hon;;
Kong and at 18 knots the distance might
be made in 36 hours, which would enable
the dispatches to reach the American
forces Monday morning, or according to
Washington, Sunday night.
Unless General Merritt had taken Manila by that time the instructions sent
him will prevent any further military operations and a truce will have to bc agreed
upon similar in all respects to that imposed upon General Miles in Puerto Rico.
The otticiul messages relate solely to hostilities and have no bearing upon the
third artiele of the protocol, which provides that the United States hold the
city, bay and harbor of Manila until the
meeting of the commissioners.
This is nn exceedingly peculiar feature
of the situation, but it gives the authorities less concern than the fear of further
lighting. That artiele was worded in accordance with thc president's original
proposition two weeks ago, which in turn
had been when th' re waa momentary PX*
piH'tution thn'. the starved out city would
stirrende. ". once, and it was evident,
that the united States forces would remain in (wwer in the Philippines. It was
therefore considered unnecessary to stipulate that. commission should be appointed v Mn 10 days to arrange the details
of evacuation, as was the case with Cuba
1 and Pnerto Rico.
Mny Hnve lieen  I'lulilliiy:.
Secretary Alger is confident that the
Spanish general will welcome the news
snd cheerfully obey the instructions cabled to him from Madrid to lay down his
arms nnd no serious complication is expect ed to arise with the insurgents at
present, at least, regarding the change of
Tho chief alarm relates to the sacrifice
of life which may have taken place since
August 4 and to the possibility that Aguinaldo and his soldiers may have entered the city from a point on thc north
while the Spaniards were engaged with
the Americans on the south. In that
case it is feared wholesale massacres may
have taken place and much valuable property been ruthlessly destroyed.

" Deab Mas. Pinkham-.—I feel like a
new person since following your advice, and think it is my duty to let the
public know the good your remedies
have done me. My troubles were painful menstruation aud leucorrhcea I
was nervous and had spells of being
confused. Before using your remedies*
1 never had any faith in patent medicines. 1 now wish to say that I never
had anything do me so much good for
painful menstruation as Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound; also would
say that your Sanative Wash has cured
me of leucorrhcea. I hope these few
words may help suffering women."
The present Mrs. Pinkham's experience In treating female ills Is unparalleled, for years Bhe worked side by
side with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and
for sometime past has had sole charge
of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating by letter
as many as a hundred thousand ailing
women during a single year
All suffering women are invited to

Superiority   o( Northern Race* Over
the l.iitin* In Thi* l'nrtlculiir.
The Saxon nnd thc Celt, the Teuton
and tlie Norseman—which merely is to
say the blue-eyed people—possess a capacity for marksmanship none of the
Latin races ever mny hope to attain. It
isn't a Spaniard's fault that he cannot
lire a bullet straight. He can't help it.
He was born than way. He has a racial
defect in far vision. The trouble is seated
in his eyes, and against a blue-eyed antagonist he must always be the loser
when it comes to scoring at a target
at fairly long range. Neither can the
Indian or the negro shoot so as to make
it good betting tliat he is going to hit
anything. They mean well, nut they
won't do.
What it is about Die blue-eyed man
which renders his far-sight superior to
that of his dark-eyed cousin oculists are
not agreed upon. They have not sati-i-
factorily determined whether his iidvan-
tage is derived from a pigment which
clarifies tlrj vision or whether thc shape
of his lenses is somewhat different, furnishing him a greater range of sight and
a more magnified picture of distant ob-
ccts, but rjogarding the fact itself they
have long since ceased contention.
All the historic marksmen of record—
from Natty Uumpo to Captain Bogardus
—have blue or hazel eyes. Look over
the long list of western "killers" who
flourished in the frontier days, now passed
away, and you will recall that the invincible ones, those who were quickest
on thc trigger and who never missed their
man, were blue eyed. Billy the Kid,
Wild Rill, Rat Masler-ion and Jesse
.Tames^—good men and bad, sheriffs upholding the law mid desperadoes defying
it—had eyes as blue as the unfleeked sky
of June. The Tennessee mountaineers
who from behind Jackson's cotton bales
poured so witherm a tire into Packcn-
ham's scarlet-coated veterans that even
that intrepid soldiery could not endure it,
and lied from its. fiery breath as from
before the mouth of a furnace were blue
eyed  riflemen.
Every regimental officer of experience
and every gun club man knows that thc
records of target practice will stiow the
blue-eyed man well in the lead over their i
dark-eyed fellows, and the longer the distance the more marked become thc dis- |
When Oeneral Shafter has fully <XU-
embarked   his   foncs   upon   Cuban   soil:
when the ping of the Mauser gives answer j
to thc hiss of the long bullet of the Krag- ,
Jorgemsen the world will no doubt he af-
forded another object lesson of the ina-,
hilily of the Latin to shoot straight. The
Spaniards have the anus,  but  not  tbe
main—their "Aeneid" would perforce begin differently from Virgil's.
The Spaniard— and the Cuban as well,;
for the same reason—is a cutter <unl a
slasher,    lie   favors  cold  steel   in  battle,!
and  with  cutlass or machete becomes al
close range '•  formidable* foe.   lt is to
Spain that the world owes the invention
of fencing, nn art not yet 300 years old,
which transformed the mediaeval sword
into a shield and buckler as well as spear
and dagger. The Italian, who also cannot shoot, perfected the system, and is
today the master fencer of the world. It
would seem thak the dark eye has indeed
Hs own superiority of vision, as close
range. Take note that the master billiard players—those whose excelling delicacy of touch is at once a joy and a
marvel to look upon—are dark-eyed men,
as arc the fencers.
But the battles on Cuban or Puerto
Ricoh soil are not to be fought with
steel. There the blue-eyed troops who
sprang from the northern races will make
war against their swarthy foes at ritle
range, and they should have the better
of it by inalienable birthright

Ry closely following the records of

we have calculated that up to date
there has been $87,000,000. brought

We are not acquainted with His
Honor the Earl of Minto, the Governor
General elect of our Dominion, and
the chances are good for that gentleman leaving Canada,, after his term,
without having had the pleasure of
meeting us. If tho Home Government would send us a plain John
Brown occasionally, we would then
use our influence with the C P R to
secure a pass to Ottawa, make arrangements for hand-outs on the road and
make a pilgrimage to see him.
If the .Russian Bear growls a few
more times at Salisbury and makes

that it is a good thing for the C. P. R.

in this business is but another link in
the chain of absolute monopolies in

long before we will see this same C.P.

and Dominion parliament striving to
shut out any other company from
engaging in this industry within our
