When the city council assembled
Monday night, they found a vast
improvement made in the hall. It
hud been neatly partitioned off, a
coal stove put up and in operation,
and a set of handsome chairs installed
for the aldermen. Other improve
ments aro to be made and when
completed Slocan will have one of
thc neatest city halls in the country.
Those present at the meeting were:
Mayor York, Aid. Bradshaw, Nichol,
Wi rdfii, Smith and Woodcock,
Frank Fletcher wrote: "I would
state that no grades, to my knowledge, were given. The city can,
legally, establish i*rades to their own
satisfaction, Re cemetery, I will go
into this matter with the others interested in thc townsite." In connection with street grades, the question of the proposed sidewalk on
Main street canii* up, the estimated
cost of the improvement being given
at nbout $250. Letter ordered fyled.
City Clerk Allen, Kaslo, wrote,
stating terms for purchase of their
city safe—one third on Oct. 1, one
third on Dec. 21, and the balance on
April 1. TJU2. The opinion of the
council was that the terms were too
short. The expense 0'.' moving the
safe from Kaslo would also be quite
heavy. Matter left to the city clerk,
who was to write for exact size and
weight of thc safe, freight charges,
etc.   Communication fyled.
Finance committee ^reported on a
majority of tlie bills presented las:
week, including salaries, and recommended payment of same. At, the
same time ' Aid. Bradshaw moved,
that iu future all work done for thc
city and all supplies to l.e purchased
be submitted to sealed tender, where
practicable, tiie lowest bidder to get
same. Seconded by Aid. Smith and
Accounts ordered paid, on motion
of Aid. Smith and Nichol.
Hoard of works reported having
ordered stovo and coal for the city
ball.   Report ordered fyled.
A bill was presented from F.Swan,
for carpenter work on supplies for
tire hall, $19. Referred to finance
Under general business, Aid.Bradshaw asked permission to extend the
Brandon waterworks down Ward
street to Slocan street, to supply other
householders. It was not thought the
system would interfere with any
service the city might iiiBtal. Mattel-
referred to a committee composed of
Aid. Nichol, Woodcock and Worden,
thev to report at next meeting.
Regarding the Main street sidewalk, the finance committee was instructed to ascertain price of estab
lishing a gr de for the street, and
also the actual cost of the walk.
The question of pasting a road tax
was brought up by the mayor, it be
ing authorized by the incorporation
act. It would mean a revenue of $2
yearly from all male citizens. Aid.
Bradshaw thought there were enough
taxes now being raised from the city,
nnd it was becoming a hardship.
The mayor said the tax came
within tin* right of tbe city to impose.
In accordance with the feeling ofthe
council, however, the question was
indefinitely postponed.
An amendment to thc fire limit bylaw was brought in, so as to allow a
stovepipe to pass through a single
partition by the use of a double-tin
thimble, iii substitution of the brick
and mortar collar required under the
former section. Formal' section repealed and amendment ordered inserted, on motion of Aid. Bradshaw
and Worden.
Treasurer Bolderston presented his
liond of ofliee, W. T. Shatford and
II. Guest being the sureties. Bond
accepted, on motion of Aid. Worden
and Woodcock.
In reply to a query from Aid.
Worden, the mayor said he did not
think 11 dray license would cover the
selling of wood and coal, but he
would leave tho 111aiter ovei' for a
week to consider.
Moved bv Aid. Bradshaw and Aid.
Smith, that his worship, on his visit
to Vancouver, be empowered tore

The Bondholder has started up
again and will lv kept in opera!ion
all winter.   OnSaturdny'sUtiin from
Nelson four men arrived, bringing
their supplies and outfit with them.
It took nine horses to pack up the
stuff. The men were all members of
thc Salvation Army and brought
their band instruments along, so the
hills will resound with melody. After
petting things at the mine in shape,
it is quite likely the force will be increased. Regular shipments of oro
are to be made during tlie winter.

There wns a pretty fair attendance
at the board of trade meeting on
Monday night, held at the city hall.
W. T. Shatford, president, occupied
thc chair. After the opening proceedings were disposed of, the report
of the committee on bylaws was read.
The bylaws were drafted principally
from those of the Greenwood board.
They were duly laid before the members an I finally adopted without
a mend ments. A bill of $2 from the
Greenwood board for a copy of their
bylaws was ordered paid, and a vote
of thanks tendered the Oddfellows for
tho free use of their hall at the previous meeting. A resolution was
passed empowering Mayor York,
while on his trip to Vancouver, to represent the board in any way he saw

idea of having a prospector's exchange established in connection with
the board, so that prospectors may

with tho secretary, who could lay
them before inquiring purchasers. A
case for samples might also be placed
in the board rooms. In this way the
camp would be greatly benefitted.
Messrs.. Foley, Teeter, Gcthing, Baty
and Holden wero appointed a committee to draft some idea for a fuller

Lemon Creek.lB.C.
An expert examination of the Alpine group was made last week.
The vein on the Treasure, to tho
sotu li of the Gatineau sic Simcoe, has
been opened up in several places and
shows ore.
A crown grant is being sought on
the Victoria group, adjoining tho
Exchange, and owned by the New
Goldflelds of B. (J.
A survey of the Mabou is being
mado so as to determine how much
of the Enterprise vein is absorbed by
the Empress Fraction.
Gill Finkle and Tom Benton are
building a tr«il to their claims from
the head of Lemon creek. The government is helping them out.
R. C. Campbell-Johnston has been
in the camp since Monday, examining a number of properties in the interest of Charles Dempster of Rossland.
Charley Faas has discovered and
opened the Independence lead on the
Crusader ground. It contains fine
ore and the discovery of this second
vein enhances the value Of the property considerably.
The survey ofthe Republic wagon
road wns completed Thursday evening. The road will start from the
old road on the Hat this side of tho
Springer bridge, and switchbacks up
the hill on a ten per cent grade. The
length is about four miles.
A suit has been entered against the
Chapleau Mining Co. by F.Mourgucs,
the engineer in charge of the company's interests on thc first north
fork of Lemon creek. Thc suit is for
$1995, being six months' salary at
,f300 :u.d damages for non-fulfillment
of contract.
board and city.
Discussion ensued upon the epies
lion of getting a bank established
here, all to, ling that, it, wns an ab 0
lu1.' necessity. Tha easiest way to
gel one "was to haw the New Denver
branch of the Hank of Montreal removed hither. The manager of the
bank  favored   the   idea   to   Mayor
Yoik and recommended the matter
being laid before General Manager
Sweeny at Vancouver. The volume
of business offering here was sufli-
cient to warrant a bank., and Slocan
was recognize I si the most important place on the lake. Finally A.F.,
Teeter and T. McNeish advanced the
following resolution,which was unanimously adopted: "Tlmt the board of
trade of S ocan, in meeting assembled,
hereby express our belief that there
is a siillicient volume of business to
make it profitable for tho establishment ofa bank In this city, and hereby unanimously agree to extend
every aid in out" power to such institution."
Upon the question of securing a
smelter hero, Mayor York reiterated
his statements to tlu*. city council as
to Frank Fletcher's offer ofa free site
and the willingness oftho city fathers
to help encourage the scheme'. Other
members Joined In tho discussion,and
the following committee was appointed to gather statistics on the subject

former being in 850 feet and the latter 75 feel. In these drifts, as well
as in the other workings on thc * ro-
pcrty, th. re is an encouraging chute
of ore in sight, the paystreak being
about two foot out of tho vein width
of 10 feet. Below tlio No. 4 drift
there is s.ill much live ground to be
opened up, and the syndicate arc
confident of making the Tamarac •
winning proposition.
Returns have been received from
the rcci iv small shipment made from
the Tamarac and the result is higher
than expected. There was about
six tons of oro sent out and the smelter figures show it to have run 172
oz silver and 17 per cent lead. This
is f)0 oz better than the shipment,
made by the original owners, and
proves thc • te to bo getting richer
with depth. A healthv indication of
the permanency of the ore is to be
noted also in the presence of copper,
which appears In various forms, and
is one of the earmarks of a mine in
this camp.
New cabins are now being erected
on the Tamarac, so as to provide accommodation for a larger force of
men in the winter. Ore is being taken OUt daily and another shipment
will soon be made.
At a congregational meeting last
Sundav night, a call was extended to
Rev. M. 1). McKee to contintio as
pastor of Knox church. The congregation has lately been put on the
augmentation list,
Luylcg In Wlntoi' Supplissa.
R. Burner has boen busy all week
getting ; .plies for the working of
the Fourth of July group all winter.
Sufficient supplies will bo laid in to
last till the snow goes off in tho
spring, and it is the intention to keep
four man employed during that time.
Some flu oro is being taken out of
thc mine just now, one assay giving $2.".*sO In gold and 182.66 oz in
silver. Much of the former rock was
thrown over the dump, as it was
dei rued practically valueless, whilo
tho latter is an average of the paystrcak, which is 11 inches in width.
Anot her shipment is to bo made at
once, amounting to 10 tons, and the
ore is now ready to come down. No
oro will bo shipped during the winter, but next March it is purposed to
send out four carloads.
The Kepulitic lt.mil.
Tenders are being asked for tho
building of a sleigh road to the Republic mine from thc old Springer
road. It is to he 21,375 feet long, of
which 10,500 feet is light work; 8225
feet heavy work, and 3650 feet oxtra
heavy. There aro 15 switchbacks,

She scribbled also a message to Mia*.
Winnington, and when John had do-
parted and she was looking down the
engagement book to see whether any
notes of excuse would be necessary Alan
Stacey got up and began walking restlessly about tho room. At last he stopped in front of her table.
"What are yon doing nowt" he
"I was just looking whether I should
have to write to any one—excuses, you
fie stood with his hands thrust deep
down into his trousers pockets eying
her approvingly.
"You're a wonderful little woman.
Mary," he said in a very tends-r tone.
She smiled at at him and pnt out her
hand to touch bis.
"I'm glad you think so," she said in
rather a qnavering voice.
"Oh, my dear, my dear, I always
think sol" ho said passionately. "It was
tbe luckiest day of my life when I met
"And wbat." said she, "do you
think tbat it must have been for me?"
Sbe was at tbat moment on the very
point of breaking down and telling him
everything. Then the sound of the sob
in her own voice frightened her. No,
she conld not, must not, dared not, tell
him jnst now—now, when he had tbe
weight of a great book upon his mind,
the anxiety of a large contract before
him, when he was in a measnre nerve
broken and anxious and depressed. No;
she must keep the secret, at least.for a
time It would be selfish to do otherwise She owed it, even if it was a sin.
aa a small return for all thnt Alan
Stacey had poured out at her feet She
owed it to him. In this instance silence
was her duty.
As the train steamed out of Padding-
ton station on the following day Mury
gave a great sigh of relief, and Alan
Stacey, whose spirits had gone up as high
as the day before they had been low—fer
he was, like all people of bnoyant disposition, subject to great alternations
of temperament—moved his seat over to
the one beside her and put his arm
ronnd her waist.
"Little woman," he said, "it is awfully jolly to be going out of London
again, isn't it, even although we uro
not going for a holiday 7 By Jove, that
was a good idea of yours. What a wine
little head you've got I I should have
gone on fagging my heart ont in that
used np atmosphere, and yon came with
yonr wonderful woman's wit and solved
the qnestion in an instant Yon women
are wonderful creatures."
She did not say very mnch. She nestled up clo-ie against him with curiously
mingled feelings. On the one hand ehe
felt that she was leaving ber troubles
behind her; on the other that she was
only putting off the evil day for a little
time. She felt that she was safe and yet
that she was insecure She had gained
breathing time, a resting place, but
that one day she wonld have to tell Alan
Stacey the truth was as inevitable as
that one day she would bave to die.
"By the bye, did yon remember to tell
John to send the papers after us?"
"No, I did not tell him," said Mary
Sho flushed np a vivid, guilty scarlet,
for, truth to say, she had purposely refrained from instructing the intelligent
John on this point.
"OhI Well, of course we can easily
write and tell him to send them," said
Alan. "All the same, I don't know
whether newspapers are not rather a
bore than otherwise "
"Yon see," said she apologetically,
"we generally go to hotels where tbere
an papers."
"Oh, yes, yes. yea, it's aU right I
dare say we shall be much better without them if we find that the Powys
Arms is not so luxurious as to havo a
London paper Let ns try it at all
So they started on their pilgrimage
without so mnch as a daily paper to
tell them what was going on in the
It seemed strange to Mary herself
that ahe was not more eager to know
farther news of the survivors of the
Arikhama, bat she was truly happier
not to know. From thst moment she
flung herself into the present with an
energy which waa intensely pathetic
and Alan Stacey was more hopelessly
in love with h-r than ever.
She bad arranged with Miss Winnington to be in readiness to come if
she should send for her, ao that they
made acquaintance with the little Cornish fishing village without the restraint of a third person. Tbey were
like two happy children The wenther
was lovely, the air soft and sweet, and
they tramped over the golden sands and
prowled among the rocks, as if never a
care existed in the world or ever could
"Yon like this place, sweetheart V
he said to her on the evening of their
first day.
"I lore it," sbe answered. "I should
like to stay here alwaya Alan, I don't
believe tbat a place like the Sycamores

place as this I What joy it would give I"
"Yes, but should we havo any London friends to ask if we settled ourselves here altogether f"
"Why not ? Yon have friends all over
the world. You are not dependent upon
London. Of course you would havo your
friends just the same."
"And you would really like to loave

"I am afraid I would, Alan. Yon
see, I am not like you. You were born
to lt. Yon are well need td the rash and
turmoil of life. I feel sometimes as if I
conld not get nir, ns if I were choking. "
"Everybody feels it in London, my
dear, and when yon've got uir nnd aro
not choking you feel bored to death;
yon feel you wonld give anything to be
back again in the place where things
hum, to be in the thick of tho fruy. It
is vegetation to spend all yonr life'in a
quiet place, even a paradise like this.
But I tell you what we might do. I've
had my doubts about the Sycamores for
some little time. Wo might move into
a flat—comparatively email- and take
a cottage down here solely for work.
Tbat wonld pay better than setting up
our tent in any such placo as this altogether."
"A cottage one conld turn round in,
"Oh, yesl I take it house rent is not
very expensive here. At all events we
will look ronnd at all tho cottages and
see what kind of places are going. And
we must see first whether I can work
in the dead stillness of a country life.
Somebody or other called it 'dead stillness,'didn't they? I once went down
into the country to do a very special bit
of work that I wanted in a hurry I
went down with Goggle Eyes to a farm
in Surrey. I came back at tbe end cf a
week dead beat, and indeed I never
passed a week in such a continual din
in my life I Did you know before that
horses never go to sleep?"
"Oh, nonsense!"
"It is true,' said he solemnly.
"Horses never go to sleep, or, if they do,
they walk in their sleep. My bedroom
was at right angles with the stables
where the fafm horses lived. They kicked the walls and the mangers and tbe
floor all night long. I need to go in and
look at them foddered down knee deep
in straw, all still, silent, quiet, except
for the pulling of the chains through
the iron rings of the mangers. Bnt as
soon as I got into bed tbey all began,
and they were never still for one minute until cock crow—never I At half
past 3 or earlier the poultry yard begaa
And then between the coming of tbe
laborers and the flirting of the yonng
women—I don't know what they did,
because the men did the milking—and
the stentorian voice of the farmer bellowing his orders I never got any rest
at all Goggle Eyes slept through it
He said it was heavenly, it was so tranquil I believe Goggle Eyes would sleep
through the last judgment."
However, the Powys Arms proved to
be an ideal working place for Alan
Stacey. He flourished and throve, and
the work grew apace, and Mary was
more than ever set upon establishing a
little seaside home of their own. a little
retreat to which they could at any moment retire from the world.
At the end of three weeks the book
was finished, and little Miss Winning-
ton went back to London. Alan Stacey
and Mary, however, staid on at the
curious, old fashioned inn, spending
their days in boating and fishing and
trying to make np their minds in what
part of the world they should spend
their holiday. If he had a preference, it
was for a yacht, bnt Mary did not fall
very enthusiastically into the scheme,
and he had always a lingering fear that
she might have a special reason for not
wishing to be on the sea. Therefore he
forbore to press her to consent to this
arrangement, for Alan Stacey wonld
have done anything rather than in any
way have reminded Mary of the great
tragedy which had freed her from
her first husband. They talked of the
Italian lakes, of the regularly beaten
Riviera track and lastly of Biarritz,
with excursions over the Spanish frontier. Upon tbat tbey practically decided, yet they lingered in the little fishing village from sheer inability to tear
themselves away.
And during all this time they bad
never seen a London newspaper. Several times Alan Stacey had said in joke
that they might as well be dead and
buried for all the news they had of the
world, and almost every day he declared
that he must write to John and tell
him to send on the papers. Bnt as Mary
did not write it somehow remained undone, and they continned in their ignorance of passing events.
So nearly a month slipped by.
"We really ought to make a move,
sweetheart," said Alan one afternoon
wben they were sitting on a rock
watching the sun sink slowly down into
the water.
"Yes." said Mary, "but it baa been
charming here I don't," with a great
sigh—"I don't think that tbe time baa
been wasted."
"My dear child, no time conld be
wasted to me that has been spent with
you What a thing to say I Of course it
has not been wasted. This place bas
served onr tnrn well, bnt we both want
change, yon as well as I. Do yon know,
two or three times lately I have thought
you looking quite careworn, and yon
bave nothing," looking at ber anxiously and searchingly—"yon have nothing
to be careworn about 1"
"Nothing," aaid Mary. She conl!
feel the sob in her throat; she wondered tbat he did not hear tt. "I think
yon are right," she said, after a moment, "and that it is timo that we
were moving on. You have quite decided on Biarritz, Alan?"
"As well as any other place. We
have never been there They say it Is
bright and gay and exhilarating. If we
don't like it. wo can move on somewhere else "
"Then we will go home tomorrow?"
"I think we may as well," he replied.
So she set about packing np her few
belongings. She had taken only the
most plain and simple sergo gowns with
her. A single trunk held everything
that she had. She packed a good deal
that evening, and in the morning she
got np early and finished it off before
breakfast time.
"I will just run down to tbe village,"
•aid Alan, "and settle up with Jan
Trevethick, and by that time you will
be ready for breakfast."
"Yes, I shall be ready," said Mary,
smiling at him.
Sbe watched him go down the village
street with eyes full of pride and love
What a man he was I With what a
swing he walked I With what careless,
easy grace of carriage I A man every
inch of him I Sbe was sorry to leave the
dear little Cornish village, and yet she
felt that tbe pleasant Basque town
would be at once a change nnd a relief
from the monotony of the life that they
were then leading. She dreaded that
one day Alan would wake up to dullness, for that, she well knew, would be
the beginning of the end of their love.
Yes, for both their sakes it were better

There t That was the lastl She shut
down the lid of her dress basket with an
air of satisfaction. Alan's portmanteau
she had finished half an hour before
Sbe would put her hat and gloves there
on the dressing table, so tbat she would
only jnst have to ran np stairs and
fetch them after breakfast She glanced
at her watch. Oh. he had had plenty of
time to get back from seeing the old
boatman, and she tnrned to the window
to look whether he were not coming
She only gave one glance. Tbe window
was at tbe end of the room and commanded a fnll view of the irregular
cobble paved street And as Mary's eyes
were turned to look along it she saw
Alan Stacey und Edward Conway walking up the street
Mary only gave oue horrified glance
along the village street, ere sho cowered
back behind the shelter of the white
diiuity curtains
Yes. it was he I The man who in law
owned her. thu man wbo bad bought
her with a price, the man who bud
treated her as a bond slave He was not

He was apparently talking excitedly

The sudden revulsion of feeling, the
overpowering sense of relief almost

The great weakness in the social
gain of tho farming population is
that the women havo not shared
proportionately in tlio improvement
of conditions. The conveniences of
city life aro of especial value to the
women, who profit enormously in
their domestic work by the advancement in conditions, and suffer fewer
drawbacks than do tho men. For
these tlie lack of menus or exorcise,
tho enforced abstinence from tlio
whole round of pleasure
associated with        the        horse,
the deprivation of a number
of tho most Innocent forms of
sport, are a fairly heavy price to
puy for the street cur and the waterworks; but those aro deprivations
littlo felt by women. On tho farm
the improvements iu labor-saving devices have done little for tlio domes-
tie side of life. The cooking range
muy have replaced tlio stove, an occasional funuice may bo seen, furniture muy bo more satisfactory, but
all these are small improvements
compared with tho abolition of tho
scythe and the pitchfork by tlio self-
hinder, tho mower, the horse rako,
the Hayfork und a host of such inventions. The fnrmer daily handles
appliance after appliance of tho
most delicate and eilieient nature to
lessen hia toil; the farmer's wife
still llnds her work us fatiguing, as
exacting, almost confining as ever,
Still is obliged to curry water from
the well, still must, in most cases,
bnke hor breads—although tho baker's
cart is sometimes seen on tho side
lines—still is miles away from tho
nearest shop, lt is tlio women, not
the men, who are the most dissatisfied with country lifo to-day. Tlie
men are awakening to a sense of tho
independence of their position, and
have learned that mercantile enterprise is not a sure or an easy road
to wealth. The women aro suffering
uuder primitive conditions of life,
their restlessness increased by their
growing knowledge of the comforts
placed in the possession of their sisters in tho city. Two things are
necessary for the revolution to be
complete. One is for the farmers to
realize that their womenfolk have
dropped behind them in the amelioration of the conditions of their life.
Another ia that manufacturers
should realize that a new class of
well-to-do consumers is opened up,
nnd set themselves to thc study of
domestic life in the country so aa to
meet its needs as sufficiently as tho
needs of the male workers have been
met. Some dny this will be done,
and then the revolution will be complete. Were the domestic conditions
better, almost the last of the attractions of tho village over country life
would disappear.—Frederick Hamilton.
Were the conditions of women's life
in the country, as described by Mr.
Hamilton, better, we believe that
not only would the migration to the
town be stopped, but a distinct
movement back to the land would bo
seen. As was pointed out in an article quoted in this column a week
or so ago, the worker is seeking relief for his over-strung nerves us never before, by getting away from the
turmoil of the city to the quiet and
beauty of the country. With olec-
tric railways spinning along tho
main highways there is no reason
why a man whose occupation is in
town should not combine with it the
life of a farmer. Then there aro
many who hnve retired from business altogether. With Isolation removed by electric communication,
rural mail delivery, and rural telephones, it seems to us that to set
up a country place would be much
preferable to living in cramped town
quarters. All this appeals to the
man. But he has only to suggest
buying a farm and taking up his residence there, to have hia intended
action meet with the strongest disapproval of his wife and his daughters. They are unable to look on
the change in tho way he does. If
he is to continue his business in the
city, he will find the quiet oi the
country restful after the rush and
noise of the day. But he Is told it
wilt be different for those who have
to etand rural quiet, with only occasional relief. If he is to make
farming his only occupation, they
cannot take the satne interest that
he does in tho operations of the
place. Their work ia to be drudgery
compared with what it was in the
city. The cry of "Back to the
land!" la not likely to become much
more than a cry till something is
done to make the women more anxious than they are at present to forsake town life.—Woodstock Sentinel-

One can never realizo what work

I shall always appreciate the real

birches and of othor trees mako such

in advance. No wonder that many of

with muscles well developed and appetites unusually keen when they
have spent part of the Muskoka holiday in this necessary work. The

Some Snnaestlona About the Plnmb-
Iiir nnd tbe Care That Should Be
ExcriilNcd In (he Avoidance Both of
Expense and Ulaenae.
Nowadays thc plumber and his bill
are your true household specters. Like
other specters, careful common sense
will put them to rout nud confusion
nine times lu ten. Wise men have been
studying this subject ever so long to
devise plumbing that would tako care
of itself, but tbey have not yet succeeded. Neither are they likely to
without a revolution In mechanics
whereby tbe tendency of fluids always
to seek their own level may be eliminated and other things as wonderful
brought to pass, bo long as knowledge
remains nearly static so long will It
behoove every bousemlstress to look
well to the usage of her pipes and her

match, a wisp of hair, seems a very little thing, one that the pipes can carry
off with no possible hurt, but tbe rag.
by hanging over the bend of thc trap,
may serve as a siphon to take away the
water seal, which Is all that stands between the household and unlimited
sewer gas. And the rag may keep on
doing lt for weeks ond weeks until
deadly disease Ib rampant
A string snarled and twisted may
work tbe same 111. The match end, of
course, ought to float away harmless,
but is very much likelier to be caught
In some eddy of the flush water, Jammed Into a crevice and tbere to tnke to
Itself other solid particles until they
form a clot both offensive and dangerous.
As for hair, tbere Is no end to the
barm It harbors. A wisp quickly forms
itself Into a sort of strainer, catcbing
nud holding nil tbat passes. Aside
from that. It has a trick of lodging In
the most Inconvenient places, catcbing
upon the least roughness Inside the
pipe and staying tbere until by accretion It has clogged tbe whole space.
Hair has special affinity for bits of
soap. Solid soap, by tbe way, should
never be sent down the pipes. Very
strong soapsuds even Is objectionable
unless you follow It wltb a flood of
clean water, preferably hot water.
Coffee grounds and tea leaves either
clog a pipe very soon or else, If the
flush wnter prevents that wear It
through quickly, partly by mechanical
action, partly by chemical. Neither
should ever be permitted In a sink.
Even If yon are wise enough to keep
out all grease, and thus make sure that
the grounds shall got safe away from
your own pipes, In the sewer tbey may
come In contact with grease from pipes
less carefully kept and cake and clog
your whole pipe sjstem, making necessary costly and inconvenient unelog-
Every kitchen ought to have Its grease
can, emptied once a week In winter
and In summer every three days. AH
sorts of refuse fat should go Into It,
even the scrapings from plates and
dishes. Creasy water, as from boiling
hams or corned beef, should be allowed
to cool thoroughly, then have the
grease carefully taken off before It goes
down tbe pipes. Skillets and frying
pans wight to be filled with very hot
soda water and lei stand half an bour
before washing. This gives time for
the soda to partly saponify the grease
and keep It from sticking to tbe pipe
or caking on top of the trap.
In scouring faucets be careful to keep
tbe scouring grit out of tbe Joints.
Even the llnest particles cut awny
screw threads turning ninny times a
day. After scouring also take care to
let the water run at least a minute before catcbing any for use. In washing sandy vegetables, as spinach, turnips, potatoes, use a big pan and drain
off the dirty water, so the sand may be
caught Even a spoonful of sand going down a pipe will cut and wear It
more than a hogshead of water.
Milky water Is one of tbe hardest
things to manage. Even a small quantity dally fouls pipes unless the milky
water Is followed by a flushing of soda
water moderately strong, with a lime-
water flush about every three days.
Tbe llmewater Is made more effective
by adding salt to It Sea snlt Is ocbl

Alexander Chninlierlnin In his booU,
"Tho Child, a Study Iu tho Evolution of
Man." asking, "What Is the meaning of
the prolonged hclnlessness of human infancy?" He finds his answer In the following words of the lato John Kiskc, to
whom he frankly gives full "credit for
the scientific interpretation of tho prolongation of infancy:"
"The prolonged helplessness of tho offspring must keep the parents together for
longer and longer periods in successive
epochs, and when nt last the association
is so long kept up that the older children
are growing mature while trhe younger
ones still need protection the family relations begin to become permanent.
"The parents have lived so long in m-

Involves some disturbance of Ingrained

wltb strangers since tbey bave common
objects to achieve and common enmities

"As tho parent dies the headship of the
family thus established devolves npon th*

remaining. Thus the little group gradually becomes a clan, the members of
which aro united bv ties considerably

they may indeed combine to resist tha
aggressions of yet further outlying clana

Wliy She "Was Mad.
One morning lu kindergarten a wee
mite of womanhood had been trying to
attract the teacher by every resource
of which she was capable without dl-
reelly snying she bad something to tell.
I'Munlly the young girl went over and
Mi beside her, whereupon little Rachel
flounced ber skirls, puckered up her
forehead and, clinching her hand, ex*
claimed, "Oh,dear, but I'm mad!"
The lonelier was surprised, for Rachel bad seemed to be laboring under
n delljrbtful secret. "And why is little
Miss Rcnsblne angry?" asked the Instructor,
"Well, everybody was mad at our
house this morning. Mamma scolded
Sister .IniisP. and auntie scolded main-
mn, and papa said, 'Oh, darn!' nnd left
the till le. so I guess I can be cross too!"

Meat Dealers, It  Ia  Bald,  Never DU
ol Consumption.
"lintchew never die of consumption."
The big man with his sleeves rolled up,
wielding the cleaver at the block, said
this as he threw a beefsteak on thc
It sounded more like a trade superstition than a fact, but so far as diligent
inquiry has been able to discover lt li
true, although not generally known
outside ot tbe meat chopping craft.
Butchers nre no longer lived than
men ln other walks of life. Tbey arc
subject to all the other ills that human
flesh Is heir to, but consumption the;
do not bare. So far as a reporter was
able to learn not a single cose is on
record of a butcher ln this city being
afflicted with tbe Incurable wasting ot
tho lungs which claims its hundreds of
thousands of victims annually.
Tho fact Is well known among butchers and has been often tbe subject of
their comment, although none of them
can give a reason for lt.
"No," said a man wbo has swung
sides and rounds In Washington market for the last 20 years; "I have had
rheumatism nnd typhoid fever and lots
of other things, but nothing has ever
been out of gear with my lungs, nnd
the snmo is true of every other butcher
in tills town. I know nearly nil of
them, and I never heard of one of them
bavlng consumption. Tbey don't drink
blood or take any especially good enre
of themselves either. I don't know
why It should be so unless It's because
tbe continual Inhaling of on atmosphere of fresh meat Is strengthening.
"I bave often thought when hearing
of consumptives going to Colorado and
Egypt tbat I know of a climate nearer
home that would do tbe business Just
as well. If they would stay In this stall
for awhile and swing meat, they would
get well Quito ns quickly as they would
on the top of Tike's peak."

How Colorado Destrrt Waa Formed.
Everybody knows, without looking at
Ihe map, how Lower California runs
south from tbe Pacific const like n sort
of tall, separated from the l'nited

some people are not nwsire— by n lonj'

tended In a northward direction BOO
miles beyond Its present Inland liuill.
Into this northerly extension the grent
Colorado river emptied millions of tons
if detritus niiiiiinlly until the deposit
accumulated In quantity sutllelent to
■iluit off the upper pnit of the gulf,
which was thus transformed Into a
hike. To begin with, of course It was a
•mit lake, but it gradually became fresh
through the influx of water from the
Colorado. Thereupon fresh water

An old legend gives the following a*
the origin of the snowdrop: After Ad-
am and Eve had beeu driveu from tho
garden of Eden Eve was disconsolate.
Oue day as she sat silently grieving nn
angel appeared and sought means to
omfort her. She longed for the flowers, but the fast descending snow was

As tbe angel stood and spoke words
of hope to the weeping, repentant woman he caught a snowflake, breathed
gently upon it and said:
"Take form, pure snowflake, bud and
blossom and be a comfort to humanity,

In a twinkling the snowflake changed
Into a beautiful flower, as white and
pure as the snow itself, and when Eve
beheld the newborn blossom gladness
and hope came to her heart, and sho
smiled through her tears.
Having fulfilled his mission of love,
the angel departed, but where be bad
