Enjoy Tlu.iiiM.lv,.,.
It was children's day hero on the
1st, and they celebrated Dominion
day with vim and enthusiasm. Apart
from the youngsters not much attention was paid to the day. A few flags
were flaunted to the breeze, but a majority of the stores kept open and the
shingle mill operated till noon. Not
more than half a dozen people went to
Nelsou; a few more went fishing, and
some picnicked along the lake.
Just after dinner some of the more
energetic oitlzens rustled a subscription list and collected a goodly sum
for sports aud then the children turned loose. The various races were held
on Main street and were so managed
that each child, big or little, received
a share of the general fund, causing
all to be happy aud gay. The parents
were lined up along the street and
thoroughly enjoyed the fun.
In the evening a capital game of
baseball was played by the boys on
the recreation grounds. Wes Baty
and Alex. McCallum captained the
rival teams, the former winning out in
a six innings game by a score of 17 to
15.   Following were the players:
Baty McCallum
W. Baty catcher     A. McCallum
A. Beck pitcher      E.Tipping
E. Tutcher       1st base     E. Graham
L. Hall 2nd base
P. Binish       short slop
C. Tipping      3rd base
J. Greenwood    fielder
Umpire, J. Pinchbeck.
Following the baseball came a tug
of war, five impromptu dog fights,t\vo
adult scuffles, and the distribution of
fruits and nuts to the youngsters. All
the children participating in the
sports wore a maple leaf, iu honor of
Canada's natal dav.

Clever Mitve by Jim Hill.
Jim Hill of the Great Northern1 rail-
>vay has secured a controlling interest
in the Granby mine ami smelter. It
was Urst announced by the Vancouver
News-Advertiser and promptly denied
by Ihose interested* but the facts are
gradually coming out confirming the
deal. Hill's move is a clever one and
will effectually checkmate the C.P.R.
iu the hauling of the immense tonnage of ore from Phoenix to Grand
Forks. Being in control of the mine
and smelter, Hill will naturally cut
off the traffic from the Canadian road
and give it to his own branch now
building into the mines at Phoenix.
The move will also affect tho carriage
of the immense supplies of coal and
coke from East Kootenay. Thero.too.
Hill is building a competing road into
tho coalfields, aud will thus shut tlie
C.P.R. out of much of that trade. As
the Granby smelter is to lie enlarged
and the output of the mine doubled,
the Granby purchase will ensure Hill
for his railway a steady and lucrative
traffic. 	
I.a* Kol not tu Shut Down.
A. J. McMillan, managing director
of the Le Roi mine, Rosslaud, has issued this statement: "As regards the
future I may say, notwithstanding
rumors to the contrary, it is not our
present intention to close either the
Le Roi miue or the Northport smelter.
Siuee I arrived I havedone everything
possible to keep things moving along
at both places, and hope to continue
this policy. The mine is in very good
condition, and there is a very large
amount of ore iu sight. Much of the
low grade ore we hope to concent rate,
if the tests uow carrying out ar** successful. High grade ore and concentrates are to be smelted."
A Peculiar Point.
A peculiar point has arisen here over
the crown granting of a claim and one
that will intorost every prospector in
the camp. A couple of the owners iu
the Creole, on Lemon creek,represent-
ing four-sevenths of the propeity,
advertised for a crown grant, which
was opposed by theother interest. Ou
application to the minister of mines, a
ruling was obtained that any interest
in a claini may be crown granted, consequently the recorder was ordered to
issue his certificate. Who is now responsible for keeping up the work on
the three-sevenths interest, and can
the interest or the claim lapse through
negloet in representing?

Called by Board or Trade In Clly Hall on
Friday Kvenlng.
On Friday evening a public meeting
will be held in the city hall, commencing at 8 o'clock. The meeting has
been called under the auspices of the
lxiard of trade.to discuss the increns-ed
freight rates imposed by the C.P.R.
against the Slocan towns and in favor
of Nolson. Not only have coast rates
been iuereased, but it is understood
eastern rates will also be raised. Retail dealers in Nelson find freight
charges to Sloean and Lardo points
raised, while wholesalers get favcred
rates to all their wholesale customers.
First-class freight from the coast ] ays
42 cents a hundred more than under
the old rates, an increase that will
havo to come out of the pockets of the
consumers and not of the merchants.
Foodstuffs through here are already
very high, but they will go higher.
The meeting of the retail merchants
in Sandon last week was well attended and energetic steps were taken to
bring the whole matter before the attention of the railway commission.
The Mineowners' Association will also
take a hand in the game and use their
influence to upset the rates. It was
pointed out that the new schedule was
directly opposed to the provisions of
the Railway Act,and it is believed the
commission will order the rates suppressed. A committee was appointed
embracing each town to gather data
and present it to the commission, Mr.
Giegerich, of Kaslo, being the chief
spokesman. T. McNoish was chosen
from this town on the committee.
As this question of rates is one that
interests tne citizens generally, it is
hoped there will be a good attendance
at the meeting.

I**: It ME GETS A HMKI.TKTt.
Definite information has lx*eu received announcing the final decision
of Mr. Fernau and [associates to erect
their zinc imelter at Fernie. lh'
many advantages thet place po sei-es
for smelting purposes were rendffc-j
recognized by Mr. Fernau wheu he
first visited tliere and he has lieen engaged since in arranging the details.
The terms submitted to Mr. Fernau
by tho Crow's Nest Coal Co. re the
side of the land and the cost of the
slack coal to be supplied continuously
to the smelter were taken up by Mr.
Fernau's directors in London last
month, and were accepted. Mr. Fernau instructed the coal company to
prepare formal contracts, etc., ready
for signatures. The last communication from Mr. Fernau is dated London, June 13, in which ho made arrangements for certain payments nnd
stated that though the actual date of
his departure for Canada was not then
fixed he hoped to start very shortly,
when he would affix the necessary
signatures.
The contract lietween Mr. Fernau
and the coal company calls for the
erection of a zinc smelter plant costing
at least $100,000, which will be in
operation this year. Mr. Fernau has
already given orders for tho building
of the zinc enriching plant at Rosebery. The Fernie smelter will be
where the concentrates will be reduced
to zinc matte. The site will comprise
several acres on the north side of the
Coal creek branch railway, above the
old power house.
Zinc Market Unaettled.
The unsettled condition of the spelter market has resulted in a reduction
in the price offered for ziuc ore in the
Missouri-Kansas district. There is a
feeling of dissatisfaction, nnd it is
quite possible arrangements will be
made to close down the larger mines
for a short timo. This is not a satisfactory way of increasing the price of
oro, but it has beeu found to be the
only effective way. While the mines
are closed down it is necessary to keep
the pumps iu operation, which incurs
a great expense to tho operator.
Twenty-five companies uow control
a majority of the ore produced in the
district, while five years ago 100 companies could uot control a majority of
the output. This makes it much
easier for the operators to get together
nnd makes the closing down proposition much more effective Manufacturers are stocked with zinc and the
demand is light, with the price low.
The highest price paidfor 60 per cent
ore last week was $32, which was $2
less than paid tho week previous. The
price is expected to advance again at
an early date.
Amending the Election Law.
An amendment to the dominion
election act has been introduced iu
the commons. It provides for the returning officer setting tho dates of the
election in Comox, Atlin,   Kootenay
UOVKI.AND TO WOHK.
lruii,.in« Klglit Mile Property I'aeaei Into
Now Hand*.
Advices from Spokane state that a
controlling interest in the Rockland
group of claims has been sold to eastern American capital, and the property is to be extensively developed. It
is a copper proposition and consists of
three claims, being situated on Eight
Mile creek, below Silverton. Frank
Watson negotiated the deal.
A meeting of the stockholders was
held recently in Grand Forks, when
the following trustees were elected:
M. B. Rudderow, Morchantsville, N.
J.;C. C. Hutchison, Palmyra, N.Y.;
Dr. G. W. Van Baun, Philadelphia;
Judge Spiuks, Vernon; and Frank
Watson, Spokane. Tho two last are
among the old stockholders to retain
au interest, while the others are the
new buyers. Formerly the mine was
controlled by Spokane meu, aud Jay
P. Graves still retains his interest.
The head office of the new organization will be in Philadelphia.
James W. Hamilton, of Spokane,has
been made superintendent of the mine
and starts operations with a force of
18 men. About $37,000 has already
been expended on the propeity, but
for the last two years it has been idle.
The vein is 200 feet wide, and carries
a fair percentage of copper all the way
across. It is claimed there is 80,000
tons of ore blocked out. The new-
company purposes pushing development during the summer and winter,
nnd in the spring decide upon installing a plant to treat the ore. A tunnel
to crosscut the ledge at a depth of 200
feet will be started and a compressor
plant installed.
A Sm«J Event.
Mr. and Mrs. Boie are mourning the
loss of their infant son, whose death
occurred at New Denvor ou Wednesday afternoon. For weeks past the
little one has been ailing and gradually wasting away. A month ago he
was taken to New Denver, where, under Dr. Bio.ise's care, a plucky light
.wns put up for life but tho baby's
strength could not hold out. The
body was brought down on the even -
in ; liont, being taken to the parental
residence. The little one was eight
months and seven days old. Heartfelt
sympathy from the entire community
is extended to the bereaved parents
and relatives.
lteinoved io tlle Knit.
Con Murphy, with his wife and
family, left yesterday morning, via
Revelstoke, for thoir old home in
Summerseith, P.E.I., where they will
in future reside. They have been
among the old-timers here and their
many friends will miss them. Con
will return to B.C. at once, and will
spend the summer looking nfter his
mineral interests in the Similkameen.
A Big Milling Teat.
Kennedy & Cameron received a big
packing contract this week, when they
undertook to handle 100 tons of ore
from the Kilo to tho Chapleau stamp
mill. The ore is freo milling gold,
containing practically no silver values.
It will lx* a comprehensive test of the
milling qualities of the Kilo product
and the result will have a far reaching
effect.

Improving Their Plant.
The Granby Co. will spend $100,000
this yoar in improving its mine equipment. The output of ore is to be
doubled, necessitating the enlargement of tho smelter at Grand Forks.
Coal Company Won Out.
The Crow's Nest Coal Co. has won
out iu the damage suits brought
against it for the explosion of two
years ago. The court held the explosion was due to gas and not coal dust.
Ore from the Alberta commenced

"How slow you are, Candida!"
"Tea." lt wus entirely gootl tetu-
TTed. Therefore the oilier voice be-
emue crasser.
"What's the use primping two hours
for that mere nobody of a Flllberto'.'"
"To be sure, what is the use?" Candidal good temper was maddening.
Her mother was at the remote end of
the house, but she eould see mentally
tbe smiling, tantalizing fnee Unit she
kuew so well.
Candida's mirror smiled back at her.
It was a tiny mirror with ii shabby
frame, but it held the loveliest and
most famous picture Iu ull Alta Call*
fornlu. The portrait was that of a
elxteen-yeur-old girl, Btron&ty built and
exquisitely rounded, as those Castillan
girls of old California were—the complexion a pure Ciistillan olive without
a tinge of rose; the eyes a sparkling,
vivid black; the hair as black us the
eyes, a splendid mass coiled high and
caught with a comb.
"Ab, but It Is of use, even if Flllberto is a mere nobody. What do you
think, lovely senorlta V" she said to the
face iu the mirror. The fuce laughed
back ut her.
Candles were fastened to the wall on
each side of the miner, so that a
strong light was thrown on the fuce
therein. Candida could wateh lt to
good advantage ns It grew lovelier under her skillful touch.
A lock of hair did not suit her. She
brushed lt, pulled it, unfastened It, re-
fastened it, tinally pulled down the
whole mass of luiir lu a heap and began colling lt all over from the beginning.
"You're the slowest of nil my girls,"
fretted her mother In the dining room.
It made no difference to her whether
Candida was slow or not on this occasion, but she was out of sorls wltb all
the world. She had expected that the
comnndunte would Invite her daughter to accompany hlin ta the fuiiilaiigo
tonight. She hud watched in vain for
the message. She saw her matchmaking blighted nfter being brought (o
a critical point.
"Where's the girl?" growled a ter
rifle voice. It wns that of her husband.
"She's dressing."
"What for, when she's going with
nobody but Yorba? She had as well
wear her working gown."
"Ab, Dlos—after all our hopes!''
Senoru Barrajas wrung her fat bunds.
"It's of no avail to whimper nbout it.
The girl's been a fool, you may count
ou that, po matter what she says.
She's done something to annoy the
comuutlunte — it's like her. Stubborn
as ber mother.   She will reup us she
BOWS."
"My stubbornness trade me marry
you," put In the seuoru.
"And you got better than you ever
deserved." He strode out of the room
grumbling like a thunderstorm.
Candida, adjusting ter comb, heard
It all and smiled.
"Ah, madre mla, how blind you are
In spite of your lynx eyes," she suid
and took a note from her bosom.
"Contrary to custom, 1 send tbla to
you Instead of to your mother," she
reread with satisfaction. "For It ls
your answer I desire. Will you accom*
pany me to tbe fandango? If not I
shall go to Santa Barbara on business,
for tbe fandango without you would
hold no charms."
Below was wbat any girl in California would have given her black eyed
for—the signature of the popular co-
inundanto.
No member of tbe family had seen
the messenger ride up aud deliver thlH
note to Candida. Nor hnd nny omi
seen her send back her uuswer which
read:
"1 must beg to be excused from thin
fandango, fur my ankle is still weak
since Pero threw me, and I dare not
risk a dance."
Nor did any one know that she seut
another message to a certain "nobody.''
"The const Is clear. The co'iinn*
dante Is going to Santa Barbara, so Im
will never know that I go to the dance.
Kather will let me go with you for the
once, for he thinks I have no other in-
vitutlon."
Candida's conscience shook off fibs
as a duck shukes off water. Tliere was
not n cloud on her brow us she made
herself lovely for the ball. Her father
hud given a grumbling "yes"' to Kill-
berto's Invitation. Be had refused
over and over to let the girl accompany
this young man, whose fault was poverty, but now pique played Its part,
and us he realized that the ooninii*
duute wus not Inviting Candida after
all his promising attentions he resolved that she should uot be left at
home.
"I don't cnre; take her to the dance
If you wnnt to," he said to Flllberto
Yorba. Tben he went off muttering
curses on the head of the couiittl*
dante. They hud gambled together
many a time, uud they had laid side
by side ln their cups when the aguardiente was plenty. "Now the man In
Jilting my daughter. Is he?"
Candldn tucked the note In her bosom again, lt wonld Le fun to show
It to Flllberto when they had n little
time alone.
"Tell Flllberto I'll be ready in n
minute," she culled us she heard lhe
light hoofs of Mla.
She moved the comb to the othor
side, tben bnck to its original position.
Behind ber cur she fastened it great
crimson rose.
"You nro lovelier than ever." Fill
berto whispered us she gave hlm a
glimpse of the picture she was.   Then
she threw a white mantilla over tier
head and shoulders, her face antl tha
rose peeping out from the snowy lace.
"Cood evening. Mla," she suid, putting the little horse's nose, lt gave
a happy whinny, for lt knew Candida,
Her father und mother came from
the house nnd snld n surly good evening to the handsome storing Spaniard.
To Ihein he was entirely objectionable
In that he had no property, no lnh*u-
etitlnl father, nothing but his owu
cleverness untl courage to depend upon. Furthermore, they Btrongly suspected their daughter of preferring
hlm to the shrewd old political fox to
whom they were trying to marry her.
"Permit me to thank you both for
Intrusting your daughter to my care
tonight," he snld blithely In spite of
the frowns that greeted hlm.
Candida patted the restless pony
again. "Are you In a hurry, Min?"
she said. "Come, Flllberto, we must
start.   Mla snys she will not wait."
The girl put her little red slippered
foot into the stirrup, Flllberto helped
her as she sprang, and she was perched aloft In the gala day saddle, all
carved and besilvered. With u bow
to the old people he sprang up behlud
her, as was the t'aliforitlan custom,
He reached forward to adjust the
reins. Mia fumed to be olf. But the
word had not been given when a clatter of hoofs sounded beyond the house.
All turned to seo who the arrival
was. The hoofs clattered more sharply ns the gallop slowed. Up rodo the
eomuiidante.
At the sight of Candida nbout to
ride away he turned white with anger,
as his way was.
"Ah. senorlta, may I Inquire wha
your physician may be that your ankle
heals so quickly?"
The father and mother stood silent.
looking from one to the oilier. Suspicion, fear, rage, were creeping upon
them, lt wits no time to parry, the
girl knew.
"There Is but one physician who can
heal every hurt," she replied, "lie is
love. 1 nm In his charge, OH", Mia."
And the pony was away with tliem.
'•You mean It?" said Flllberto.
She only tossed hiin a teasing ltiugh
now. "How Mla files!" she said,
dodging his quest ion. "There are the
lights of the fandango."
Far ;iwny glittered the brilliant
lights ln a great ranch house. Suddenly the road divided. At the end of one
branch were the lights of the gay ball;
at the end of the other, one lamp shone
from the mission.
"Listen!'' said Flllberto and stoppi?d
the horse. A strange blending of
sounds came to their ears; guitar and
violin sounded faintly from the left;
from the right came the faraway
chime Of the mission bell.
"To the left lies the dance," he said
slowly. "Afler It—home again, a
storm of wrath, you und 1 separate
forever."
"Yes," she said, the merriment gone
out of her eyes.
"To the right," he went on, "Father
Juan, our otd priest and friend. He
knows us nnd loves us. He will inttrry
us tonight."
"Oh!" she cried with a little shudder.
"Shull It not be the right road?"
"Uh—I'm afraid—I can't"—
"Say the right."
She hesitated, perplexed. Then she
cried: "I know, I'll let Mla decide. We
shall see which way she chooses."
She pushed his hands from the reins,
drew Mia to the middle of the fork
und stopped her. "Now go, Miu," she
suid.
The horse flung up her bead nnd galloped Into tbe dark road ou the right.
"Mia, you shall feed upon sugar
lumps for the rest of your life," Flllberto snid.
It was not for many years that Candida made a confession to her husband. "I tweaked the right rein," she
owned then. "I was so ufraid Mia
might make a mistake."
How the New Foreman
Showed His Authority
THE night after Mulbaney was relieved of the sectlou foremnu-
ship the new boss came.' I'he
crew of the "Irish local" formed ther
silent conclusions at the supper facie
and Inter over their pipes agreed lo
start right by propitiating us far us
possible Mr. Michael O'Brien.
On the following morning while that
gentleman was yet stowing uway vast
quantities of eggs and bacon the men
left a hurried breakfast and, proceed*
' lug to the car house, performed the till-
J usual feat of placing the handcar Upon
the siding before 7 o'clock. Then they
loaded up the tools and buckets uud
waited.
When   O'Brien   came,  carrying   bis
dinner pall and with bis coat flung turgidly about his shoulders, he paused,
with an Inquiring look at the car.
"Who put that car on the track?"
The crew glanced at one another, at
the car and buck at O'Brien.  Marty J.
Flyno swallowed part of his chew and
made answer:
"We did."
"Take that enr off the track!"
The wheels crunched In the cinder,
and the men Straightened up.
|    "Now put that car on the track.   I'll
; show you who's boss round bere!" —

A squire not a great distance from

, tested that a liveryman had "shaved*1
I him dreadfully, mid he wanted lo come
up to bim.
"1 asked hlm," explained the client,
"the charge for a team to bo to Heu-
bum. He replied $1. I ordered tiie
team and on my return offered iu payment $1. He insisted on another dol!.,:'
for coming bnck and made uie pay It."
The squire gave him legal advice,
which follows. Going to the liveryman,
; he asked, "How much will you char*,*
for a team to SalemV"
"Five dollars," replied the stable
owner.
"Harness him up." The client went
to Salem, returned by railroad and
went to the stabler, saying. "Here's
your $5."
"Where's my tenm?" asked the liveryman in surprise.
"At Salem," answered the client.   "I
i only hired the team to go to Salem."—

Willing to Repeat.
The ofliee boy to a large firm of publishers wus a smart lad, und when he
wns sent to one of the operative departments with a message he noticed
at once that something was wrong
with the machinery. He returned,
gave the alarm nnd thus prevented
much damage. The circumstance was
reported to the head of the Ann, before whom John was summoned.
"Vou have done uie a great service,
my lad," he said. "In future your
wages will be Increased $1 weekly."
"Thank you, sir," said the bright little fellow. "1 will do my best to be
worth lt nnd to be a good servant fo
you."
The reply struck the chief almost ns
much us the lad's previous service had
done.
"That's the right spirit, my lad," bo
said. "In ull the years I have been iu
business no one has ever thanked me
iu that way. I will make tlie Increase
$'-.   Now, what do you say to that?"
"Well, sir," said the boy after a moment's hesitation] "would you mind if
I said lt !ii*u!u?"-Philude]|ihla Ledger.

"Oh, mamma." she said, with a little

"Ah. did he, my dear? And what did

"Ob, I told hlm that an engagement
was too solemn and sacred a thing for
me to enter Into without serious
thought nnd consideration and thut I
would give him n-.y answer ln a week.
And-now, mamma mine, we must go
to work and Hnd out if he really and
truly has a thousand a year."
"You dear, wist* little girl!" cried the
fond mother, folding her child to her
bosom and Weeping softly over her.

The  nieli   Man   and  the   Doctor.
"The lifo of a rich niau ls worth
more than the life of a poor man, nnd
the physician has ii ritiht to charge the
millionaire moro for bis services than
he does the laborer," is the opinion recently handed down by n Philadelphia
JudRO, who went on to say:
"The physician Is unlike the tner-
cbnnt, wbo has goods of different quality to sell at various" prices. He must
give bis best service 111 every case. Hut
it docs not follow tbat the service ls
worth the same In every case.
"Unman life bus n pecuniary vnlu.
of variable quantity, greater In the
millionaire than lit the laborer. Thus
the praeiilioner of common sense
makes out his bills to suit tbe pecuniary circumstances of his patients."

When a business concern in lhe United Stntes begins suddenly to receive a
large number of letters daily It mny be
sure that, although no ripple bus disturbed tbe surfuce, a quiet Investigation Is going on, und If there ls anything dishonest about the business a
notice will soon appear from the post-
ninster to tbe effect that the department nt Washington lias ordered -the
retention of nil letters addressed to
that man or company.
The dishonesty which Is held to justify the Issuing of a fraud order may
not be a mere barefacd attempt to
steal—an effort to get something for
nothing. The charging of au excessive
profit or misleading advertising hns
culled forth sucb un order. A recent
case In point is that of n company
which advertised to furnish seed for
nn agricultural product nnd to buy
tbe product nt market prices, 'i'he
order against tbe company was Issued
because It was loaiuoM tbnt it sold in
small qunntltles for n total of $(!()()
seed which It bought ln bulk for $3
und becnuse It represented the product
ns easy to raise, wheu, lu fact, It ls
dllllcnlt.
'Ibis fearless nttltude nnd nctlon of
tbo government are of the greatest possible benetlt to tbe country ut large lu
two ways. It checks—Indeed, It stops
absolutely—one kind of fraud, and it
protects innocent persons from loss
through that fraud. The thing on
which stress should be laid is the
availability of this strong arm of protection, i
There Is always a large number of
fraudulent schemes afloat, dependent
upon the publicity which they get
through advertising. When one's ut-
tentlon is attracted by bucU nn advertisement be bns only to call the ntten-
tion of bis postmaster to it nud to nsk

THE COMMON ILLS
OF HUMAN LIFE
Tha  Stomach,   Liver   and   Kidney  Disorders  Can
Usually ba Cured by
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
Most of th. Ills of every-day life
como from derungements of the digestive, system.
Eating too much, Irregular meal
hours, improperly prepared food, the
excessive use of stimulants, are
among the common Causes of these
disorders.
The liver becomes clogged and torpid, tha kidneys Inactive, and tho
bowels constipated. Tho poisonous
waste matter Is thrown buck into tho
blood stream, und thu result is somo
deadly form of disease.
It is not necessary to be continually dosing if you uso Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
This treatment nets directly and
promptly on the liver, kidneys nnd
bowels, and ensures their proper
working.
Indigestion, dyspepsia, kidney disease, backache, liver complaint, biliousness and constipation uro tho uil-
monts for which Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills uro most frequently used.
Th. story  of their success  in cur
ing such ailments ls told by thousands of grateful cured ones.
| Policeman Peter 0, Morris, 10 Wtis-
canu avenue, Toronto, states:—"Far
years 1 was troubled wilh habitual
constipation, which I believe is tlia
most common ailment ot ull policemen, I had spent considerable
money in trying nil sorts of so-culled
remedies for constipation, and was
always disappointed as the .relief wus
only temporary.
1 "I now' gladly state thut-I have
been completely cured by using Dr.
Chaso's Kidney-Liver Pills, and shall
bo pleased to personally recommend
them to any person who wishes to
interview me. I have nlwuys advised my friends to uso theni."

lt Is predicted that within a few
generations the race of native lia-
walians will become extinct
The main causes, as set forth by
I.ucieii C. Warner in tbe Outlook, nre
intermarriage nnd tbe poor state of
health of the pure bloods. Their total
number has been reduced from 70,000
lu 1853 to less thnn 30.000 in 1000.
Marriages between the Ilnwniiiins nud
otber races are quite frequent, nnd the
number of part Hawaiians is steadily
increasing. In 1S72 the census gave
but 1.487 part Huwailans. In 1S84
they had Increased to 4,218 nnd in l'.iOO
to 7,848. The lurger proportion of children among the purt Ilnwnllans Is indicated by tbe statistics of school attendance, which In llM)2"*fchowetl 4,003

among tbe part Hawaiians as among
those of pure blood.

Th. Juggernaut.
William Eleroy Curtis, tbe newspaper correspondent, says tbat the stories
of fanatics in India throwing themselves under the wheels of the Juggernaut nre all fiction. He says tbat on
certain ho'.y days the great Juggernaut Is put on a truck nud drawn
through tbe streets. Tbe people flock
around, throwing rice, flowers, palm
leaves, bamboo wbisps uml other offerings, nnd once ln awhile an unfortunate falls uuder the wheels and
is crushed. The official records show
only nine such accidents In eighty-
six years. So worshiping the Juggernaut ls less dangerous than trying to
bun nl a moving trolley car.
The Cork Crop.
The production of cork in Spain ls
estimated at 28.4o0,71G pounds, tbnt ot

uml otber cork producing countries together about 20,321,040 pounds, making
the world's total annual cork production 81,287.70 pounds. The export of
raw cork from Spain In 1002 amounted
to O.i'iiil.tMiii pounds und for thc lirst
eleven months of 1003 to 8,728,003
pounds. Tbe export of manufactured
corks from Spain In 1002 amounted to
4,800,006 pouuds, valued at $1,445,700.
A   Lamp of Marin.  Microbes.
A curious lamp hns been constructed
by a professor. A glass globe placed on
a metal stand ls nearly tilled with a
liquid composed of luminous marine
microbes. There are two tubes running
from the globe, and through these a
supply of air can be sent to tbe Interior wben the light grows dull, the effect apparently being to revivify the
microbes. The light from tbls lamp
will last for severnl weeks without re-
newul of the Illuminating medium.—

to compliment you on the quality of both
your Hungarian and Glenora Patent brands

to your brand as being the most satisfactory.
Wishing you continued success aud thanking you for your most liberal business treatment, I am,
